George Murray, M.A.  united in marriage his eldest son  WillJGordon Murray to Margaret  Catherine Lester, daughter of  Mr James Lester, of New Westminster. Only the immediate relatives were present. The bride,  who was given away by her father, wore a very smart light  brown tweed travelling suit-with  a most becoming little French  hat trimmed dark cerise velvet  and shaded roses, and carried a  beautiful bouquet of cream roses  and lilies of the valley. She was  attended by her youngest sister,  Miss Nell Lester, who wore a pret  ty stree dress of soft blue with  smair'wliite'"Tegfibrh^HatTffmmed  with white ospreys, and carried  a large bunch of pale pink roses.

Inside Lots 50x120  E  E. G. Warren, general manager of the British Columbia  Copper Company, ���; died in the  Greenwood hospital yesterday  morning. His wife was with  him when he passed away.  Death was the result of injuries  received last Sunday morning  when the car in which he was  riding overturned and went  down a hundred-foot embankment.    Mr.  Warren was pinned  f  beneath the car and when extricated it was found that all the  ribs on the left side of the body  were crushed and that one had  pierced the lung.  Mrs. Warren was in this city  with her mother, staying as the  guest of her sister and brother-  in-law, Mr. and Mrs. A. W.  Strickland when the news of the  accident to her husband was received. Accompanied by Mrs.  Strickland she was-hurried in a  special automobile to Greenwood;  leaving here at nine olclock on  Sunday night and;arriving in  Greenwood at three o'clock the  following afternoon, a record  trip.  Early yesterday morning Mr.  Strickland receivedja wire from  his wife, announcing the death  of his brother-in-law. Both  ladies are . prostrated. Mr.  Strickland left in the Coalmont  stage last .night to catch the  train for Greenwood from Coalmont this.- afternoon. The date  for the funeral is not yet known.  The late E. C. Warren was one  of the most popular'men in the  Boundary mining .^district . and  was only thirty-seven years of  age'at'"~tKe time* of - His^'dea'thT'  Last autumn he succeeded A. F;  McAllister as general manager  of the British Columbia Copper  Company, and under his management the corporation has  been making the largest profit  in its history. He was regarded  as one of the foremost smelter-  men in the Dominion. He had  a host of friends both" in this  country and in the United States  who will deeply regret to hear of  his untimely end.  In addition to his business  career he was always deeply in  politics. He contested^ the Greenwood electorate some years ago  as the opponent of George R.  Naden, by whom he was defeated by the narrow maagin of  eight votes. He was always a  staunch Conservative. His fight  with Naden is historic in Boundary politics. Although defeated  in provincial politics in Greenwood he was several times offered the position as mayor, but  always refused the honour.  Ten Year Old Boy Caught in Whirlpool While Out Fishing  . Little Gordon Horrocks, son of  Mr. and Mrs. A. Horrocks, met  a tragic fate while out fishing in  the Coldwater river last Tuesday  afternoon. The unfortunate lad  had just hooked a fish and in his  eagerness to l^nd it forgot that  he was on a shelving spot in the  river and fell fooward, to go  down in a hole twelve feet deep.  He swam a few strokes when  the undertow of a small whirlpool caught him and dragged  him under. The scene of the  tragedy was about a quarter of  a mile above the Voght street  bridge. The body was recovered  a few hundred yards above the  bridge.  Two other lads, James Fairley  and James McKendrick, witnessed the accident but could do nothing. Dr. Tutill convened a Coroner's Jury on Wednesday afternoon. After hearing the evidence the jury brought in a verdict  of accidental death. The jury  members were W. Schmock (fore  man), J, Netherton, W. Cranna,  T. Rowcliffe, J. Stackhouse and  W. Brown.  The boy was only ten years and  ten months old and was generally liked among his playmates.  His body was interred in the  local cemetery yesterday afternoon at two o'clock, the arrangements for the funeral being in  charge of B. Priest. Rev. J. A.  Petrie officiated A number of  his schoolmates subscribed for a  wreath to be placed upon his  grave as a token of respect.  .HUDSON SUCCEEDS BROWITT  George Hudson, of Merritt,  has been gazetted as secretary  of the Nicola Collieries board ol  miners' examiners, dating from  May 4, vice Benjamin Browitt.  ^subfc,  EfiJ  T  si  EARLY CLOSING  The merchants of the city have  entered into an agreement by  which their stores wilt close for  half a day next Wednesday afternoon. The failure of the proposed early closing by-law to pass  the council is thus compensated  for by this agreement.  MiU  Council. Has Let Contract For Construction   of   Electric  Lighting Plant -  Last Wednesday evening the  city council awarded the contract for- the electric lighting  plant to the Canadian General  Electric company. The work of  installing the machinery and  erecting the transmission lines  will be proceeded with by the  contractors as rapidly as possible, and the city should be  once more illuminated by electric lights by she time winter is  here.  A. S. Bourne, of the firm of  Dutcher, Maxwell & Co., engineers in charge of the municipal  works here, is busy with his  crew laying out the lines for the  transmission.  ��� WATERWORKS  Excellent progress is being  made in the waterworks prelim-  inary work. A. S. Bourne, engineer in charge of the work,  has staked out the ditch which  will be cut for the pipe-laying  and the contract for this work  will be rushed as rapidly as possible, at least one hundred men  being put to work. Early this  week the first carload of .���water  mains arrived here and others  will be sent in as rapidly as possible.  nd   Mile   and   One  Eighth  Were Feature  Events  The horse and foot, racing at  Nicola on July 1st was about the  most successful in the history of  the vailey.

Dominion   Engineer   Kerr  Makes  Trip to Summit From Hope  Early this week Mr Kerr; the  engineer appointed by the Domin  ion Railway Commission to report On the feasibility of constructing two roads down the Coquahalla river, completed his trip.  He lef t Hope last week accompanied by J. H. Kennedy, chief  engineer for the Great Northern  Railway. Mr. McCulloch, chief  engineer- for the Kettle Valley  railway was to have accompanied them, but at the last minute  wired from Vancouver that he  would be unable to make the  trip. Arriving at the summit  Messrs. Kerr and Kennedy went  on to Princeton, Mr. Seymour,  engineer in charge of the K.

But his thoughts turned to the  study, and to teaching: and authorship, and after further work in  the schools he become professor  of history; first at Bryn Mawr,  then at Wesleyan and finally at  Princeton.    Five  years   of   this  work in other schools and twelve  at Princeton brought him to the  presidency   of   his alma mater,  arid this position he held until he  entered public life last year as  governor of the state   of  New  Jersey.    At Bryn Mawr and Wesleyan Mr. Wilson was professor  of history and political economy.  :Hi,s chair in Princeton was Politics and Jurisprudence.    Professor Wilson's books deal with the  political history and development  of the nation.    They include a  History of Congressional Government, a Study in American Politics,   Division   and   Reunion,  a  History of the American People,  several series of political essay,  and a discussion of the life and  work   of   George    Washington.  Professor Wilson has not restricted his teaching to the press and  to college halls.    He is an eminent public  lecturer.     Whatever  he may do or say hereafter his  teaching and influence hitherto  have been wholly on the side of  public morality and social justice.  He is classed  as a Progressive  Democrat, and though his associations have been rather with the  eastern than western- ideas he is  probably as free from the influence of the financial or class interests as either Clark oi Bryan.  His academic training and professorial reserve would keep him  from the use of the extravagant  language which comes natural to  Mr. Bryan and there are indications of modesty and quietness  which would make it impossible  for him to assert himself after  the Roosevelt   fashion.    Nevertheless it may be found that in  his case as in that of some other  men firmness,  courage and justice do not always manifest tnem-  selves   by   tumult   and bluster.  They may perhaps exist without  egotism and violent censorious-  ness.    In  all  the shouting and  clamor of the two conventions  the voice of Professor Woodrow  Wilson has not been heard announcing his own virtues, declaring his  own intentions  or  denouncing his. political  opponents  and rivals as thieves.and thugs.  For all that Mr. Wilson may prove  to be a strong candidate.     If he  shall   be   elected,   which  seems  quite likely to happen,  he may  also prove to be one of the strong  Presidents     of    whom   history  speaks well. -  '^MUNICIPALITIES WARNED  A:    leading    Anglo-Canadian  banker of London said in  a dispatch   a   few   days   ago:    You  should warn the Canadian municipalities   and     the    provincial  governments  that the  state of  congestion in London  was never  worse  than  now.    Many   loans  are:;unabsorbed and  the public  are-not applying for new issues.  =XJnless=the=-Ganadian==issues  slacken, we shall soon reach the  point when they cannot Be even'  underwritten     here.       Canada  must for years to  come depend  so "largely  upon  British capital  that want of restraint and judgment at this juncture, especially  on,, the  part of the   provincial  governments and municipalities,  will cause the bottom to drop out  of Canadian credit,  and Canada  will  be refused  money  at "any  price  in   reason.    The situation  may become extremely grave if  the"': Canadian    authorities   continue to neglect  warnings  from  disinterested London friends.  ���j? -*.  WOODROW   WILSON,   CANDIDATE  Considered from this distance  it would  seem that the United  States democracy had chosen a  good candidate for the Presiden  cyv��  Mr. Woodrow Wilson is a  fine example of the scholar in politick, though as a matter of fact  thifit is only his second political  venture.    He has nearly all his  life-been a teacher of young1 men  though this   was   not   his   first  choice of a profession. r  After  graduation  at Princeton he re-  turriedtohis native state of Virginia, ��� studied 'law -;and -'begari-  practice as a barrister at Atlanta.  THE CENTRE OF EMPIRE  A distinguished publicist, writing some years ago in the monthly Review, demonstrated conclusively that the British Isles will  always continue to be the centre  of trade, the centre of finance,  of intellectual progress and enlightenment. He based this  claim chiefly on geographical  considerations, which proved  that Great Britain was the natural centre of the world. It did  not matter, said he, who should  hold the United Kingdom. Even  if it were conquered and made  the vassal of the conqueror there  would be found the hub of the  umverse^so-far^as^the^human-race  is concerned. He made it plain  that the growth of Britain had  arisen from natural causes, by  the flowing into it of continuous  currents of the world's life.  : It would appear that Professor  Moore, chief of the United States  Weather Bureau, has with equal  certainty been informing the  people of the Briti-h metropolis  that the future centre of the  British Empire will be on the  North American continent. We  should not make the fact that  Professor Moore is a weather  man, the basis of any doubt we  may have as to the correctness  of his predictions. A man may  fail in telling which way the wind  is going to blow tomorrow, or  whether there will be rain, and  yet be quite able to indicate what  will take place with regard to  human conditions a century or  two to come.  Itis interesting to observe however, that the new prophet leads  up to hi3 prophecy by a meteorological path. It is because the  northwest winds of this continent  "blow with such velocity from  an extreme altitude of vast electrical potentiality," and because  of the immense quantity of ozone  thus released, that people living  here in the future will, to use an  Americanism, lick all creation.  As a story for the hot weather  season, the world of journalism  will no doubt recognise the value  of Mr. Moor's statement. From  a scientific and physiological  point of view also its significance  is at once apparent. So long as  human beings haye nothing but  air to breathe they are plainly at  a disadvantage. They need ozone  and they are not going to be happy till they get it. Therefore  they will crowd to this continent  and will ultimately make it the  centre of things. The eastern  hemisphere will be a junk shop  and a museum, while the western  will increase in brilliant andsup-  eriative vitality and excellence.  The Anglo-Saxon race has not  thought   of   these things   as   it  ought, and no doubt the head of  the United States Weather Bureau exhibits a true missionary  spirit in going direct to the heart  of the Empire, like another Jonah  to proclaim that within a measurable period, the present greatness  and importance of London are to  be overthrown.    It will be granted at once that in doing so he  is performing a work which is  not called for by his connection  with his national barometer.    It  is what used to be called a work  of supererogation.   The benevolence of his action will be emphasized when we remember how the  British have usually disregarded  the weather, and have not thougt-  of ozone.    They have gone to all  sorts of places and have  planted  their colonies without ever asking  whether a proper northwest wind  was blowing or not.     Think of  the sadness of Australia and New  Zealand and South Africa and India   when   they   hear   of   Mr.  Moore's new ozone gospel, and  find that it preaches a- salvation  that they can never hope to possess.    Of course it is open for  them to say that it is a gospel of  wind and that mankind wants  something besides wind to live on  but we shall notice the tremor in  their voices as they make this  feeble retort.  Considering that these ozone  producing winds that Mr. Moore  talks of have always been blowing, it seems a wonder that people did not at once crowd h^re  from Europe as soon as Columbus  discovered the continent. Perhaps he did not know about ozone.  Then again the ozone had not  produced such effects on the  North American Indians as might  have been expected, Europe had  to worry along for 400 years comparatively ozoneless. Even so,  she produced more great men to  the square mile per century than  this continent has shown any  capacity of producing during the  century and a half it has been  experimented upon.    But if she  had migrated here en bloc, they  would have been as thick as  blackberries.  The C. P. R. will no doubt be  delighted to hear that William  "Ducks" Miner has resigned his  position at the state penitentiary  in Georgia and contemplates adding to the interest which British Columbia has for the tourists.  So far no reason for his resignation from his comfortable berth  has yet been i��?ued by' the  prison authorities.  THE CONTINUOUS  can mean but one thing���that  the service it renders its customers makes for permanent  business relations.  The London Times has lost its  reputation for accuracy���according to the Vancouver Sun. The  Sun denounces the owners of the  paper because they publish an  editorial to the following effect,  anent the visit of Premier Borden to London: "He comes," not  as a party leader, but as the  foremost spokesman of a great  principal of faith, reasserted by  the Canadian people last autumn,  to remain masters of their own  destiny beneath the British  flag." If the Times has fallen  it is indeed a castrophe. But���  this is like the difference between logic and sophistry. It  all depends on what side you're  on. .   ���  We would direct the attention  of our readers to the letter which  appears elsewhere from one of  our Vancouver subscribers.

THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  8  a  AUTOCRAT  if  T. P. O'Conner Gives a Study of  the Career of Sir Richard  McBride.  T.P.'s Magazine, of London,  Eng., for June, has  a masterly  study of Sir Richard McBride,  under the heading of  "A Benevolent Autocrat."     It was written  by T. P. O'Conner,   one of  the most famous of present day  magazine writers.     The article  is a lucid and luminous  study of  the   personality of British  Columbia's premier and most popular citizen.     It describes   the  premier's   intellectual    capacity  and physical perfections, sketches his career and his ancestry.  It goes into  detail of how he  established party government in  this province and  welded   the  Conservatives   into   solid   phalanxes,  that have been irresistible to their opponents in political   battles,   as   the   legions   of  Caesar since he assumed command.    He tells how he became  premier  at  32,    the   youngest  prime   minister   in   the British  Empire.   A description is given  of how the finances of the province were at a low ebb and its  credit below par, but in a short  time it was restored and today  is ranked first class in the money  centres of the world.  Finally there are given a few  statistics to show what progress  British Columbia has made in the  ten *years of Sir Richard Mc-  Bride's rule.  "The net revenue has grown  from $2,044,000 in i902-3 to  $10,500,000 in 1910-11. Whereas  the province was heavily in debt  in 1903, the Public Accounts  showed at the close of the last  fiscal year a balance of $1,500-,  000 over all liabilities, and by  reason of the surpluses which of  late: years have been the invariable result, the estimated  expenditures for the present  fiscal year are more than $16,-  000,000.  "The population, too, has  grown in ten years more than  113 per cent, and is now 400,-  000.    ,  "The figures are the most  eloquent testimony to a wise and  popular rule. Sir Richard McBride has often been asked to  transfer his energies, his gifts;  and his magnetism to Ottawa  he could have had a cabinet  office in the n^w Conservative  government, but he has preferred to remain in his native province until his work has there  been done."  CROW'S NEST COAL CO.  At the time of the annual  meeting of the Crow's Nest Pass  Coal company no figures for 19il  were given out. It is now evident that the company experienced a net loss from all sources  of operations during that year  amounting to $200,546. The coal  mine, during .time... it was in  operation, had output of 359,456  tons, as compared with 1,209,762  tons the previous year. However,  during the greater portion of  the year the mines were closed  down, owing to the strike in the  west.  Coke produced during the year  was 60,659 tons, compared with  194,498 tons in 1.910. Amount  spent on improvements was $23-  122. Development work was  carried on during the strike, and  the amount charged for this account during the year was $11,-  573.���Grand Forks Gazette.

Chief Constable  Burr of Ashcroft, conducted the  examination of witnesses. Toodlakein was committed for trial at  the next Assizes. ,  .    ���  BRESNIK- MATHIA  At the Church of the Sacred  Heart last Monday morning Rev.  Father Wagner united in marriage Miss Cecilia Bresnik and  Nicholas Mathia, both of this city.  The bride was attended by her  sister Mary Bresnik, as bridesmaid, and [the groom was supported by Simon Ousinik. After  the ceremony the wedding party adjourned to the family residence. During the evening the  youngsters of the town gathered  an assortment of cans and held a  charivari. The bridegroom is  well known in this city and at  Middlesboro where he has been  employed for some time past.  ���o-  HAIL DOES DAMAGE  The cloudburst which struck  this city last week did some slight  damage, but at Quilchena the  wind blew, with hurricane force  and a steady downpour of hail demolished the crops. Several  trees were torn out by the wind  and it is reported to have been  the worst storm ever known in  that section.  CORRESPONDENCE  44 Sixth Avenue, West,  Vancouver, B. C.  June 27,   1912.

' 'Last year the British Columbia potato took the big prize, a  $1,000 silver cup, at the American Land and Irrigation Exposition in New York, and arrangements are going to be made to  compete again, British Columbia  being'confident that the famous  potatoes raised in this province  wiil again carry off prizes.  The exposition will be held from  November  15   to  December 2.  One thousand dollars in coin and  cups will be given for commercial  potatoes.   The competition is open to any grower, or combination  of growers.    Entry blanks have  been received by the Vancouver  Progress Club and those who intend to exhibit and conform to  the rules laid down must advise  Gilbert McClurg, general manager,  Singer building, New York  at once, so that preparations will  be made to take care of the exhibit.    Entry blanks must be on  file in the office of the general  manager not later than November 5.  Last November the British  Columbia potatoes brought to this  =province.the-handsome-si!ver=$l,^  000 championship trophy presented by A. E. Stillwell, president  of the Kansas City, Mexico & Orient Railway. This was for the  honor of producing the best ex-  hibit of commercial or marketable potatoes grown on the two  Americas. There were entries  from all over the continent, but  the excellent manner in which  Commissioners Asabel Smith and  C. H. Stewart-Wade displayed  their exhibit won the championship over a Duluth (Minn.) exhibitor, who was a close second.  Ask your druggist  it.

Housekeeping naturally" suggests the kitchen  first���its equipment and management, or in other  words, THE RANGE  My range, as you know, is a Gurney-Oxford. I  never enjoyed much of a reputation as a cock in my  younger day3, so when I thought of being re. pondble  for three meals a ds.y ir.y heart sar.k. I L-ia^ined  myself battling all day wilh a oullcy ran^e, trying  to coax it into a good humour, and covered with  mortification because of lye or spoiled meals. Eui  my dear, my Gurney-Oxfcrd seemed to sympathize  with my inexperience.    From the day it came it  jumped right i.i and helped. It has become my  good right hand, and I go my way confident that  my Gurney-Oxford will not disappoint me.  It has the cleverec* arrangement for regulating  the drafts, well named tho Curacy Economizer. One  small lever put upcrdovm docs everything.
