The  traps are located on the old Charters field, about five hundred  yards southeast of the Diamond  Vale stables. y  The enthusiasm of the members  of the club ensure that even  without outside competitors the  shoot will be a great success.  The committee in charge of the  shoot have been indefatigable in  their efforts to procure prizes  worth competing for, and a  glance at the appended prize list  will convince one that they have  been successful.  There are many good gunmen  in the valley who are not members of the club, but membership  will be no bar to entry for any  of the prizes. The members  challenge all comers to compete.  Following is the prize list:  Co-operative Society, Box of  Cigars.  F. A. Reid and Co, Gents Tie.  G. B. Armstrong, Hunting  Knife.  < Capt.   Stephenson,   Pair Suspenders.

The cause of his downfall was a  failure to see eye to eye with  Max Eckar, of this city, in the  matter of ownership of a certain  animal, a horse to wit. In fact  to state the facts baldly William  appropriated a horse which was  not his property, and has now  received a six months rest in the  Kamloops jail.

Last Tuesday evening a delightful surprise was prepared  by the Eramatic committee for  the club members. The surprise  was in the form of a five-course  dinner, the menu of which was  written in French. The French  name for toothpicks,for instance;  caused some to order them under  the impression that they were  getting some delightful dish.  Every dish was a "sell," so all  were "stung." The members  appreciated the humor of the  thing immensely. The early  part of the evening was spent in  games anu uaneing. ,   ~  R  Reid Block  N 3xt to Barwick's  COMMERCIAL CLUB.  R. J.

XMAS DANCE AT MIDDLESBORO  As predicted in these columns  last week the Christmas dance  given at Middlesboro on Saturday was a decided success. The  members of the club spared no  effort to make the evening as  en j oy able as possi ble,  an d that  "flirtation two-step" which provided a great deal of amusement  to all. The music was excellent  and showed evident care in preparation by Sessrs Smith, Brown  and Bullen.  Those who had the pleasure of  attending the dance are grateful to the club members  for the  most enjoyable evening of the  season.  Among those present were :  Mesdames Graham   (2),   Bullen, A.

NTEST CERTAIN  FOR MAYORALTY  TRAIN WRECK AT LYTTON.  Canadian Pacific train No. 3  ran into a small rock slide seven  miles west of Lytton at 1.20  o'clock Saturday morning. Due  to heavy rain of Friday the rock  and mud on the embankment  slid down on the track. An inspector had passed over the  track just before the slide occurred, so that he knew nothing  of it until he heard from the  train crew. Engineer Fee of  No. 3 suffered a broken collar  bone in. the accident, but no  other person on the train was injured. ' The train * was eight  hours late because,of delays  the mountains. 7 '  in  FREEMAN-GREGORY  Last Sunday morning Rev.

With the announcement.of Dr.  Tutill that he will be a candidate  for election as mayor of the city  of merritt at the municipal elections on January 11th, 1912, a  little vigor is injected into the  local political situation. For  some time it appeared that Aid.  F. A. Reid would be elected by  acclamation. Now there will be  a refreshing change.  Unlike our contemporary the  News   never   tries   to  straddle  both sides of the fence at the  same time.    For this reason we  are announcing  that   we  shall  support   Aldtrman   Reid at all,  times.    Having had ample opportunity of obser\ ing the two men ���**  in their official capacity we find',  that Aid. Reid is the more tffi-'  cient as a public sei vant. Hence.r;  believing that ihe public demands  efficiency  in  those  who   would'  serve it,   we support the man  who is better able to care for the  business of the people. *-       7 7 ,  Both candidates and their "records are familiar to the electors.";  It is for them to decide.

The dancing room of the club  was elaborately decorated in  flags and bunting; thc walls being covered with evergreens,  and across the rooms being  strung ropes of greens and  ribands. In the  the room, suspended  ceiling, hung a huge  Christmas bell, done in scarlet.  At the end of the room on a  scarlet background was the  legend "A Merry Christmas and  a Happy New Year fronr the  Middlesboro Society." By ,the  entrance was a huge "Welcome"  in imitation snow upon a crimson  field.  ���Dancing commenced' about  nine o'clock and lasted until  eleven thirty, when the first  intermission for supper occurred.  Supper was served in the boarding house. This showed the  same careful preparation" as in  the hall, everything that could  possibly be desired being supplied without stint. After supper dancing was .resumed and  lasted until the small hours., A  feature of the dkncing " was a  SKATING RINK.  Messrs. Gibbs and Vanhear,  proprietors of the-new skating  rink, have been busy making ice  during the cold snap.   They are  nfforinor floaonn +i/��lra+a ai- waAnntiA  prices, which many are taking  advantage of. It is to be hoped  that local hockey enthusiasts  will be able to open the season  with a game on New Year's day.  MR. LUCAS  COMING  Alex Lucas, M. P. P. for Yale,  in a communication to Frank Coffee this week stated that he expected to arrive in this city on  Thursday evening and wished to  go into some matters of interest  to his constituents. Unfortunately he was detained at the  coast and it is uncertain whether  he will be in town tonight or not.  Mr. Lucas has just returned from  Ottawa, where he interviewed  the Dominion government on  matters affecting his constituency, and it is understood that he  was.successful in his mission.    t   .pecu-yw.^  liarlyj&iffi?^^  past year.y'The .finance/ commitSy, yy.  tee by skilful-adj.ustmentiofilhe* "^r.  ratios' of expenditui^e^have.made,ry  it possible for "the city to>close '*; -".  its first fiscal'year with**"a>slight7- -L  balance on the right side of 'the.

Pending the appointment of a  permanent Canadian tariff commission, and in connection therewith, it is interesting to see what  is now taking- place with regard  to similar action by the United  States. Recently the Democratic majority of the committee of  the national House of Representatives, having- the matter under  consideration, voted for the indefinite postponement of a bill  offered by a Republican member  for the creation of a permanent  tariff commission. It is reported  in Washington despatches, however, that President Taft and  Republican leaders in sympathy  with him will not let the matter  end here.  It is said to be the intention of  Republican friends of Mr, Taft  to offer amendments to the appropriation bill making- provision  for the continuance of the present so-called tariff board or for  the creation of a new tariff commission. According- to reports  the Democratic majority of the  House will refuse to make any  appropriation of money for the  President's tariff board, so that  the body will be forced to go out  of existence next June for lack  of funds.  The Democrats might bejusti-  fied in opposing the continuance  of the President's tariff board if  they made provision for a properly constituted tariff commission to take its place. The President's tariff board hangs on a  very slender thread. The tariff  act merely "authorisfes^he President to appoint "such persons as  may be required" to gather information for his use in connection with that section of the Act  which contains the maximum  and. minimum features. These  persons are responsible solely to  the President whereas a properly constituted tariff commission  would be representative of Congress as well.  Tariff revision is one of the  principal issues in American politics at the present time. The  people appear to be tired of the  continual juggling of this issue,  they want intelligent action. The  Democratic majority of the national House of Representatives  made a favorable impression upon  the country at the special session  because it met in a frank and  public-spirited manner the subjects arising for consideration.  Thus far in the regular session,  however, the Democratic major-  ity^andJtsJeaders_appearJ:oL.be_  more intent upon playing politics  than upon serving the American  public.  Organs of public opinion in the  United States are expressing the  hope that the subject of a permanent tariff commission will be  forced to a vote. The Democrats  in control of the House will apparently make a serious mistake  if they prevent the creation of  such a commission at the present  session of Congress.  �� ��� -      ������   o   The Italians of Montreal have  bitterly resented the showing of  moving pictures depicting the alleged cruelties of Italian soldiers  in Tripoli. In one place where  the films were on view, a crowd  of young Italians rushed the theatre, tore down all the advertising signs depicting scenes of the  war, routed the ushers, and  fought their way to the proprietor, forcing him to stop the performance. The indignant Italians are asking the Italian consul  to take the matter up, and they  threaten to return and wreck the  theatre if the pictures are again  exhibited.

The greatest sue  cesses came from humble begin  nings, but constancy of purpose  ���the laying out of a plan and  then everlastingly sticking to it  ���brought the inevitable success. The true Canadian home  has proven the strongest bulwarks against failure in many a  man's career becaase it gave  him a definite object for which  to save and strive and furnished  him with an insight into the  higher ideals that are so essential to progress and presperity.  Of course a home built of flimsy,  shaky, knotty lumber probably  wouldn't have the same influence,  but when built with the kind of  lumber, sash and doors and interior trim we handle they are  truly an inspiration.

S~  ���e o   0U^ LETTER BOX.  The Editor,  The Nicola Valley News,  Merritt, B. C.  Dear Sir, ���  In your issue of December first we notice the report of  an interview with Mr. J. J. Warren, President of the Kettle Valley Railway company, in which  the facts are so distorted that we  cannot allow the report to stand  without stating the true position  of our town in its relation to' the  Kettle Valley Railway Company.'  We enclose herewith a copy of  their advertisement in the Penticton Herald which speaks for  itself.   You will note that it states  ��� "railways and branches which  it has been heretofore authorized  to construct," which would plainly indicate that more than branches was meant.  =^The^oiiowiifg=peSuliar state?  ment is credited to Mr. Warren  in the interview referred to; "We  asked the Penticton city council  for an approval of an application ,  to extend the time allowed us toj  construct branch lines to Vernon  and other points. This statement  is wholly in error. No such application was ever made. On the  contrary an application was made  to the Penticton council to pass a  resolution providing for permission being granted to the Kettle  Valley Railway Company to apply  to the legislature for a Private  Act to validate certain by-laws in  connection with an agreement between the town of Penticton and  the Kettle Valley Railway Company. This resolution, after, an j  I amendment had been inserted for I  the protection of Penticton, was  finally passed at a special meeting  of the council on Wednesday  November ;30th, at which members of the Board of Trade and a  number of the most prominent  citizens were present.  We contend, that under the circumstances the action of our  [Board of Trade in protesting  against an extension of time was  the only logical proceeding. We  were guided by the statement of  the Railway Company over the  signature of their secretary.  Friday, December -29,  ��  The sure fo be appreciated kind.

NOTES AND COMMENTS  Mrs. Arthur Stannard, the  novelist, who was known by her  pen name as "John Strange Winter,'* died last Thursday. She  had been confined to her b<?d for  the last five years as the result  of an accident while stepping  out of an elevator. Mrs. Stannard was a prolific writer of stories, chief ly of army life. Ruskin  referred to her as "the author to  whom we owe the most finished  and faithful rendering ever yet  given of the character of the  British soldiers."  The King-Emperor and Queen  Empress last Friday laid the first  stone of the new government  buildings of India which, as was  proclaimed after the Durbar, are  to be at Delhi, the new capital.  There was a briliant assemblage  of ruling princes, governors and  state officials.  Sir Charles Tupper is suffering  from an acute attack of bronchitis.

Merritt, B. C.  for any man. The greatest sue  cesses came from humble begin  nings, but constancy of purpose  ���the laying out of a plan and  then everlastingly sticking to it  ���brought the inevitable success. The true Canadian home  has proven the strongest bulwarks against failure in many a  man's career becaase it gave  him a definite object for which  to save and strive and furnished  him with an insight into the  highjr ideals that are so essential to progress and presperity.  Of course a home built of flimsy,  shaky, knotty lumber probably  wouldn't have the same influence,  but when built with the kind of  lumber, sash and doors and interior trim we handle they are  truly an inspiration. If you're  thinking of building we want to  talk with you about this better  material.  "There's No Place Like Home"  Vancouver-Lumber  ompany  MERRITT, B.

A reward of $1000 awaits the  man who can prove to the satisfaction of Charles W. Morse of  Brooklyn that the earth is round.  The money is on deposit in a  Brooklyn Bank. Mr. Morse does  not expect to be called on to pay  the reward to any astronomer or  geographer, for he is certain the  earth is square. The idea that  the earth revolves around the  sun at a terrific rate of speed is  all nonsense according to Mr.  Morse.  The C. P. R. liner Empress of  China, which went ashore in August on the Awa Peninsular,  Japan, has been refloated and  will be immediately drydocked at  Urega to the south of Yokohama.  Nearly four months on the rocks  during which time the vessel has  been battered continually by  storms "on thei exposed Japanese  Coast, speaks volumes for the  staunch build of the steamship.  FORESTRY CONVENTION  Arrangements, are now rapidly  approaching completion for the  Annual Convention of the Canadian Forestry Association which  will be held in the Railway Committee Room, Parliament Buildings, Ottawa, on February 7th  and 8th, 1912. The gathering is  under the patronage of His Royal  Highness, the Governor General,  and a number of distinguished  men both from Canada and the  United States have promised to  attend and take part, ,  The Canadian Lumbermen's  Association holds its annual meeting on Feb. 6th. Special rates  have been granted by the railways and as the subjects to be  discussed are of the most practical and pressing character, it is  expected that there will be a very  large attendance of all persons  interested in our forest resources.  The office of the secretary of  the Canadian Forestry Association is in the Canadian Building  Ottawa, and from him further  information may be obtained.  J. A. MAUGHAN  Solicitor, Etc.

Dear Sir,���  In your issue of December first we notice the report of  an interview with Mr. J. J. Warren, President of the Kettle Valley Railway company, in which  the facts are so distorted that we  cannot allow the report to stand  without stating the true position  of our town in its relation to the  Kettle Valley Railway Company.'  We enclose herewith a copy of  their advertisement in the Penticton Herald which speaks for  itself. You will note that it states  ��� "railways and branches which  it has been heretofore authorized  to construct," which would plainly indicate that more than bran-  ches was meant.

The following peculiar statement is credited to Mr. Warren  in the interview referred to; "We  asked the Penticton city council  for an approval of an application  to extend the time allowed us to  construct branch lines to Vernon  and other points. This statement  is wholly in error. No such application was ever made. On the  contrary an application was made  to the Penticton council to pass a  resolution providing for permission being granted to the Kettle  Valley Railway Company to apply  to the legislature for a Private  Act to validate certain by-laws in  connection with an agreement between the town of Penticton and  the Kettle Valley Railway Company. This resolution, after an  amendment had been inserted for  the protection of Penticton, was  finally passed at a special meeting  of the council on Wednesday  November 30th, at which members of the Board of Trade arid a  number of��� the most prominent  citizens were present.  We contend that under the circumstances the action of our  Board of Trade in protesting  against an extension of time was  the only logical proceeding. We  were guided by the statement of  the Railway Company over the  signature of their secretary.  The sure to be appreciated kind.  Consult this list and make your  selections early.
