THE RAILWAY BELT
IN  THB  NIOOLA   DISTRICT   FROM
PHTIT OREEK.
Account Of Trip Made By A. W. Johnson D. L. 8 , From The Surveyor
General's Report Recently
Issued at Ottawa.
As showing some of the hardships
and difficulties encountered in the surveying of the boundary line of the
Dominion Railway belt a large portion
of which lies on the outskirts of the
Nicola districi, the following descriptive account by A. W.Johnson, D.L.S.,
the surveyor in charge, of his work of
that character is well worthy of perusal.
The account is taken from the Surveyor-
General's report just issued. Mr. Johnson left Kamloops on the fourth of
April, 1906, and after driving through |
the Nicola Valley, arrived at J.
Cleasby's on Petit Creek. Further
description is given in Johnson's own
words.
We camped at Richardson's, on Spius
creek, on the night of the 6th, after
one or two minor accidents, such as
being badly bogged on the way. This
is in township 13, range 23, west of the
sixth meridian, and my instructions
were to carry on the southern limit of
the railway belt towards the international boundary.
Though the weather was hot in Kamloops, there was still a little snow left
on Spius creek, and we had snowstorms
during the early part of April. There
are no roads in the vicinity, and I
picked up a few pack horses as we
drove through the Nicola, others being
sent up afterwards, until we had a
pack train of nine or ten, two of which
were, however, used almost exclusively
for saddle work.
With such a small number it was
necessary to cut down the camping conveniences to an absurdly small amount,
and when things were properly adjusted we found ourselves travelling with-
oit tents and without stoves. Instead
of the former we used one large fly
m ide out of the roof of the cook tent,
and all baking was don; in gold pani,
which made excellent bread, but require a great deal of wood, and at high
altitudes where there is no timber beyond scrubby balsam and spruce, this
is a distinct drawback. In a trip of
this sort, when for months you see
nobody but your own party and when
you are many miles from the nearest
trail or waggon road, success depends
to a large extent o.i your packer. Not
only must he be an expert with the
diamond hitch, but he must have a very
well developed bump of location and
that sixth sense which enables a mountain man to tt 1 a way that is possible
for horses, through what appears to be
an utterly impenetrable range of hills.
I was very foriunate in mine. A
party of eight or nine isrealiy too small
to cope with this class of work even in
the district passed through this summer,
which is on the eastern slope of the
mountains and consequently a great
deal drier than the real coast country.
But 'dry' is only a figure of speech
used comparatively. I have not yet
seen any long spells of good weather
high up in the mountains, either east or
west of the watershed, but I may have
been unfortunate.
The line ran up Spius creek fora few
miles, which is like most mountain
streams here. That is to say you can
generally get down to it by hard climbing. Sometimes the sides are perpendicular and you cannot. It is timbered
with bullpine and fir in sufficient quantities to warrant a portable mill if the
new railway in the Nicola valley creates
any local demand for lumber.
The creek would be almost impossible
to drive on account of falls. We had
some difficulty in getting the horses
across when we moved camp as the
water was at a high stage, but by putting on very heavy packs, which tend
to hold a horse down on his feet, we
did eventually get everything over.
A great many coal mines have been
staked here, under provincial regulations, the imaginary limit being placed
as usual too near the Canadian Pacific
Railway, and great things are expected
of the coal. Beyond boring in several
cases nothing has come of it yet.
When moving camp, I used to send
two or three or more men to help the
packers and go on line with what were
left. It is the only way toget anything
done when you move on an average of
twice a week, for although yoc may
have only one axeman and one chain-
man, you may make half a mile. It is
just here that a good packer comes in,
one who will be found at night where
you told him to go, a rare accomplishment in heavily timbered mountains,
and it was not until after one or two
disasters that I found the right man.
In one place we were man-packing
over a ridge with a flying camp, One
of the party wandered out of camp on
Sunday morning, and did not come
back. He very soon got lost, but
fortunately met one of the packers
looking for a strayed horse, and went
back to their camp. The next day
they all tried to find me and signally
failed, being scattered from the Cold-
water to Spius creek. At any rate we
had to hunt them up next day, which, is
not part of the duty attached to a flying camp on line.
On April 30, Mr. Mackie joined me
from Ottawa, as assistant.
At first I ran a traverse to check the
section lines of the belt limit, but in
rough heavy timbered country, this is
altogether too laborious an operation,
and I did not continue further than the
valley known as the Indian Meadows,
in township 12. It is a much better
plan to leave signals at known places
which may be read for miles, and a
check thus calculated. This does not
apply when the limit runs for a long
distance on one azimuth. This valley
marks the southern limit of the open,
park-like, bullpine country which is
such a feature of the Kamloops, Nicola
and Okanagan districts, i.e., the dry
b It proper.
To the south you get into a wetter
climate with thick balsam and some
pine up to an altitude of five thousand
feet. In the southerly part of township 11 and the northerly part of 10 the
line was so high we had to contend with
three or four feet of old snow. This
was altogether too much for the horses
and we had to resort to the time-honoured but detested man-pack, for a couple
of weeks.
In my experience, and it has not been
slight in this respect, this is the final
test of a good man on survey. Especially so on snow that will carry you
for a few yards and then give way
suddenly. Men who will cheerfully
stand any amount of chopping or climbing will go all to pieces in the matter
of temper with sixty pounds of sugar
or blankets on their backs, and it saves
a lot of trouble if the surveyor in
charge is either a long way ahead or a
long way behind.
While cn this hill eighteen inches of
snow fell. The weather moderated
before we got to where the line crosses
the Coldwater, though the snow had
made the river almost impassable for
horses, and many of us had more or less
of a ducking before everything was
brought over. Two of the party had
left a week or two before theoretically
on account of sickness, but mainly, I
fancy, because the snow ahead looked
uninviting.   It has alway been a matter
FALSE   CHARGES
PREMIER McBRIDE GIVES DENIAL
TO ALLEGATIONS.
Says Man Who Is Responsible To The
People Of British Columbia On
Asiatic Question Ia  The
Hon. M.-. Templeman
Premier McBride returned from a
two weeks trip to the Stave Lake
mountain this week and was interviewed by a representative of the News-
Advertiser.
When told that the "World" had
stated he had advised Lieut.-Governor
Dunsmuir not to sign Mr. Bowser's
Oriental Exclusion Bill, Mr. McBride
stated that the report was absolutely
false." Continuing Mr. McBride said :
"I am greatly surprised to hear that
any such report should ever have
gained currency. It is absolutely
without foundation." With regard to
the Asiatic question, my stand, and
that of my party in British Columbia
are so well known, that it should hardly require mention. I have always
been opposed to the entry of Asiatics,
and my record, both in the House and
out of it, stands as a witness of this
fact.
My attention has already been called
to an item appearing in the Victoria
"Times" of September 9, wherein Mr.
Templeman seeks to create the impression that His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor had been advised by me
to withold his assent to Mr. Bowser's
Bill. I wish to make a most emphatic
and absolute denial to this statement.
Unquestionably, the public man in
British Columbia who must first be
held responsible to our people for the
present situation is Mr. Templeton.
That he has lamentably failed in his
duty in not advising his colleagues in
Ottawa of the true situation in British
Columbia is apparent from present conditions. I have always treated this
question from a Provincial instead of I
party point of view, and the attempt of
Mr. Templeman to endeavor to score
off me is in reality a condemnation of
his own party. The repeated disallowance of the Provincial Natal Act, readily indicates the attitude of the Federal
authorities towards British Columbia.
I stand to-day as I have always done
anxious and willing to do my utmost
for the protection or white labor in this
country, and the prohibition of Oriental
immigration."
Penitentiary.
Tennis Tournament.
The lawn tennis tournament promoted by the Nicola Athletic Association
was brought to a close on Saturday
afternoon. The tcurnament commenced on Wednesday afternoon last week,
and was continued on the following
days.
A good deal of interest has been
taken in the tournament and the various
games were watched with close attention every afternoon by quite a number
of spectators. The ladies, on account
of lack of numbers, all played in the
second round, as well as the first, and
the thanks of the Association are due
to them, as without their help and
assistance the tournament would not
have been the success it was. The
thanks of the Association are also due
to those ladies who so kindly provided
tea and refreshments on the different
afternoons, and made the tournament
a social as well as a sporting success.
It is possible that ere long another
tournament under the auspices of the
Association will be arranged, the interest taken in this last being decidedly
encouraging. The following are the
results of the various games.
First Round.
Mrs. Roberts and C. Charleton beat
Miss C. Murray and H. L. Roberts.
Mrs. Wm. Murray and G. M. Brash
beat Miss Murray and D. K. Allan.
Mrs. Tutill and J. P. Meyer beat
Mrs. Strickland and R. S. Smith.
Mrs. Wm. Murray and M. L. Grim-
met beat Mrs. Pooley and J. Turner.
Miss Murray and A. W. Strickland
beat Mrs. Strickland and G. H. Tutill.
Mrs. Pooley and A. H. Carrington a
bye.
Second Round.
Mrs. Tutill and G. M. Brash beat
Mrs. Strickland and A. H. Carrington.
Miss C. Murray and J. P. Meyer beat
Miss Murray and C. Charleton.
Mrs. Roberts and M. L. Grimmett a
bye.
Mrs. Pooley and A. W. Strickland a
bye.
Semi-final.
Mrs. Tutill and G. M. Brash beat
Mr3. Roberts and M. L. Grimmett.
Miss C. Murray and J. P. Meyer beat
Mrs. Pooley and A. W. Strickland.
Final.
Miss C. Murray and J. P. Meyer beat
Mrs. Tutill and G. M. Brash.
Miss C. Murray thus becomes the
owner of the lady's chatelaine bag presented by Henry Birks and Sons, Ltd.,
Vancouver, through Mrs. Pooley, and
Mr. Meyer wins the gentlemen's prize,
probably a tennis raquet.
CONTINUE SURVEY
The penitentiary' investigation has
been concluded and the staff have been
made acquainted with what is to be expected.
Guard McNeil is held responsible for
the escape and is to be retired.
Guard Thomas from Pitt Lake is re-
| tired.
Storekeeper Burr and Guard Smyth
are to be retired as just past the age
limit and Guard Atkins for defective
eyesight. Deputy Bourke also is to be
superannuated.
for wonder to me how the idea has become so well established that a survey
is a pleasant summer picnic under canvas. Time and again I have warned
men that a particular trip would be
tough. The answer is always the same,
that if you can stand it they guess they
can. It does not always follow, as in
this instance, when, after being upset
in the Coldwater, and soaked to the
skin during a couple of days climbing
in wet huckleberry bushes, the two
men I had got, left, with the most uncomplimentary opinion of Dominion
surveys that I have ever heard.

O. P. R. ENGINEER AND 8TAFF COMMENCE WORK FROM NIOOLA.
Party In Charge Of H. Carry, O.B,
And Will   Work   From Nicola
Along Old Line And Prospect Country Generally,
A survey party consisting of about a
doezn men arrived in Nicola on Friday
evening last. The party is in charge of
H. Carry, C. E. It was sent out to do
some work in connection with the completion of the Nicola branch on through
to the boundary.
It is difficult to ascertain first what
the expidition intends doing but from
what could be learned it is proposed to
go over the country through which the
new road will run and possibly layout,
new lines.
Besides going over the route which
he worked on last year, from Nicola,
up Quilchena creek to Aspen Grove,
Mr. Cony will also investigate the
Douglas Lake section.
There is some talk that if a satisfactory route can be located through
Douglas Lake way the company may
eventually connect from this valley
with the Midway-Vernon in the
Okanagan.
The party are now camped a few
miles from town alongside the Nieola
lake and have commenced their work.
Conservative Association.
A meeting of the Nicola Valley Conservative Association was held at
Merritt on Monday afternoon. General
business was transacted and delegates
to the Yale-Cariboo convention which
will be held on September 27th were
elected. The following are the delegates: C. L. Flick, D. Mclnnes,
James Smith, J. Laycock, H. S. Cleasby, Alex. Gordon, L. Thompson, Geo.
L. Hilliard, Ric. A. Fraser, G. M.
Brash and Geo. McCullough.
During the meeting of the Yale-
Cariboo convention, Hon. R. L. Borden
will be in attendance and in the evening
will address a public meeting.
Thanksgiving Day Thursday.
The Commercial Traveller's delegation waited on the Dominion Government Saturday and asked that Thanksgiving Day be held on Monday instead
of Thursday, as at present. There will
be no change this year.
Will Try Again.
Sir Thomas Lipton will again try for
the American cup, and a challenge will
be received by the New York Yacht
Club this week.
Robert Stevenson was in Nicola this
week from Princeton. He left for a
trip through the Cariboo, the scenes of
his early mining operations.
Twenty Tears and Lash.
I
Twenty years in the penitentiary,
with 18 lashes forthwith and 18 more
at the expiration of one year, is the
penalty which John Wilson will pay for
having held up a man on the River road,
burglarized a house and robbed the
B. C. Electric Railway Company's
freight shed at Central Park a few
weeks ago.
Thic sentence, probably the most
severe on record in Canada for crimes
of a like nature, was received bv Wilson at New Westminster on Monday at
the hands of His Honor Judge Bole.
Mrs. Wm. Riley will give an "at
home" on Thursday afternoon next
from half-past three. Everybody welcome.

Asiatic Exclusion League
One of the officials of the, Asiatic Exclusion League stated at Vancouver
this week that the Dominion Government will be allowed time to pass relieving measures with regard to Orientals
being excluded from this country, but
if nothing is done, drastic measures
will be adopted by the League. The
Treasury now holds $5,000, and branches
of the League are to be formed on invitation in all the principal cities in
British Columbia.
The members of the Survey Party are
giving a dance to-night in Pooley's Hall
and extend an invitation to all. The
"Hop" will commence at 8.30 o'clock. THE NICOLA HERALD

OPPOSITIOX CAMPAIGN.
It is impossible for the Opposition to make the appeal to the
country which they have done
without dwelling on the contrast between the professions of
the Liberals when in opposition
and their alleged performances
when in power. In so doing the
opposition discount their ��� own
promises. The people expect a
party to backslide and when it
does so to find ready refuge iu
recriminations against the accusing
party, and they forsee merely a
repetition of this demoralizing process and the prospect of a further
hardening of the hearts of the people against all appeals to their better
nature. A political campaign based
on the cry of turn the rascals out
has less and less force as the people
get more and more accustomed to
accusations of rascality. The only
chance of winning the conscience
of the people must lie in giving
them some tangible hope of something better than bringing a new
and hungrier group of political
hangers ou, and possibly more
colossal schemers than ever, within reach of the political crib. It
is here, however, where Mr. Borden's programme is strong. He
makes definite promises of radical
reform. He will require both sides
of all electoral accounts to be published���not merely the local ones,
but as in Britain, the accounts of
all political organizations spending
any money for election purposes.
He will provide a public prosecutor
whose business it will be to follow
up charges of electoral corruption
without waiting for the initiative
of political opponents probably
equally compromised. He will
put the Intercolonial Railway and
other publicly-owned services into
the hands of commissioners, protected by the terms of their appointment from political interference.
He will sweep away the whole
system of political patronage which
at present makes it the members'
principal duty to provide places
for all who have done anything for
the party in the fight, and for all
who without such provision threaten to support the other party. All
opponents but those of a necessarily
political nature will be filled on
the British competitive system.
This is all good. These are things
that the party in power will have
to do forthwith or show cause why
they do not do them.���Montreal

Story About Bill Miner aril How Help
Is Supposed to Have Been Given.
At   the   New   Westminster   penitentiary investigation many things are
coming to light and it is altogether. NICOI.A,
likely that whm the department gets I	
t rou h dealing with th ��� wOtwit of tbe
penitentiary there will b. some dealings
with the officers of the department.   A
story which should receive offi.da! att ;n-
t on is being published.
This story is that the release of Bill
Mi;er w:is desired   particularly in a
very influential quarter, beaose of his
knowledge of  the wher.abouis of a
package of Auslra'ian birds   taken
from the mails on the night of the holdup.   That officers of the Mounted l'olire
have visited him in the pen to endeavor
to persiade him to give up these bonds,
but that with proper regard for the
discipline of the institution Hill r_f_ id
11 give any informa i n, though of
i KM if he were at liberty here would
be a difference in his disposition. That
datectives sent by a pr< in n ot agency
were allowed to question him on the
same subject, with no bet.er result.
That these detectives wire about New
Westminster up to the very time of
Miner's escape.
Bill Miner had a moustache, and he
had a fair crop of hair, when he got
out. The absence of his moustache
affected his eyesight. Bill it seems
being of peculiar physicd makeup ; and
when his eyes werj rested his head
commenced to experience the most intense pains for lack of its natural cove.-
ing. So Bill's hair was allowed to
sprout; and then the trouble shifted to
his feet, which commenced to itch
against the hard floors of the institution !
and to be attracted irresistibly to'LOWER NICOLA, -
mother earth. So Bill worked his way
to the brickyard, moustache, hair and
