Contractors Erecting Telopbone Polet.
Bear Creek Camp Setting Busy.
Accident Near Granite
New Road Advocated
The different contractors have now
gangs of men at work getting out Telephone Poles. James Brown has the
section between the snowbreak on Hamilton Hill and Dan Munre's. Max
Eckar from Munro's to Thynne's. J.
Amberty from Thynne.s to Granite
Creek and J. Bromley from Granite Ck.
to Bromluy,s. Considerable difficulty
is being met with in securing poles of
the specified dimensions.
Heavy rains were responsible for a
great freshet on the Tulameen river
this week. In one night the river rose
about six feet, producing a condition
such as is only seen in spring time by
the melting snows. Granite Creek
bridge was in extreme danger for a
time; one of the piers having been undermined and the ballast rock was being
washed away. Superintendent Holmes
was to the rescue however with willing
workers and the damage repaired.
Over 1,000,000 ft. of logs, the property
of Messrs. Stewart &, MacDonald of
Hedley were lost and much sympathy
is felt for thu owners.
Be:ir Creek Camp is getting into
shape for winter. Comfortable houses
have been built for the men, and development work ia to begin at once on the
Properties of Messrs Armstrong and
/illiams respectivsly,
A first payment has been made on
the group of claims bounded by T. J.
Smith, Vancouver. It is anticipated
that this group will be worked with the
energy for which Mr. Smith is so justly
esteemed, next year, Mr. Little of the
Diamond Vale Coal Co. conducted the
inve tigations lead.ng to the I owl.
The road leading to the camp suffered
considerably frum the heavy rains but
is being put in a state of repair:
Otter Flat Hotel, recently taken over
by Henderson of Hedley is being greatly
improved and enlarged to accommodate
the influx of mining speculators and
prospectors who will be on the trail
next spring. They will be sure of a
hospitable welcome from the successor
of the genial Charlie DeBarro, who has
returned to his old stamping ground at
Granite Creek.
While a Siwash freight wagon was
negotiating a difficult turn near Granite
Creek one of his horses became restive
and a squaw the wife of Louis Canis-
tinion was thrown out; a wheel passed
over her arm >nd 1 g both of which
were fractured. She was removed to i
Granite Creek and Dr.Schon of Princeton skillfully set the broken members.
The injured woman is at latest accounts
making good progress.
Sunday, October 21st was the birthday of the versatile Judge Murphy and
a few friends helped him celebrate the
occasion. The judge's powers as a raconteur of entertaining anecdote show
no signs of diminution. It is whispered
that he is engaged in the preparation
of a volume dealing with the "Spiritual
Essence and Man's Dependence thereon
a subject of immense interest to a largo
part of the world's population.
A petition is being industriously signed
to have a road built from McCullough's

. His Stand at Ottawa Upheld by Repre-,
sen tat I ve Citizens.
An enthusiastic reception was given
to Hon. Richard McBride in Victoria |
last Friday evening. A large crowd on
the wharf awaited the arrival of the
Charmer from Vancouver, and on its
arrival escorted the premior to the A.
O. U. W hall, being greeted with cheers
on the route.
The hall was packed by an appreciative
audience, present to do honor to their
representative at the conference of
i provincial premiers held at Ottawa.
All classes of the community, irrespective of party allegiance were represented at the meeting.
Cheers greeted the premier as he
took his seat on the platform. He
spoke for a little over an hour and gave
an account of his stewardship and during the entire speech, not one dissentient voice was heard as to the statements he made and his explanation of
his position.
That his course at Ottawa was an
honorable one, that he acted in the best I
interests of the province, and that he I
took the only course open to him in re- j
fusing the pittance offered this province
in respect to its claim for better terms
was the emphatic opinion of all present
and the meeting constituted a veritable
triumph in its emphatic vindication of
the charges of incompetency and neglect  of duty   preferred against the
At the conclusion of the speech the
meeting was addressed by Hon. R. G.
Tatlow, Dr. Elliot S. Rowe, W. Blake-
more, D. M. Eberts K. C. who were all
unanimous in complimenting the premier on the stand he had taken at the
"Rod and Gun."
November issue of "Rad and Gun and
Motor Sports in Canada" is to hand
and keeps up the reputation of this excellent publication. Dr. Franklin Haw-
ley gives an instructive monograph on
"Some Common Mistakes of the Deer
Hunter," which should be read by all
prospective hunters of deer. Among
o her interesting articles are "To Ab-
bitibi with the Prospectors," "The
Golden Eye," well illustrated with
photographs that, must have cost their
owner some trouble to procure, "How
we found the Alpine Club Camp," "The
Progress of Game Protection." The
reader who cannot find in "this number
something instructive and interesting
must be indeed hard to please.
Steel Now Laid to Nicola.  Ballasting
aud Fencing Gangs Well Ahead.
Stations Will Be Started
ln Short Time.
The laying of the tics and rails, on ,
the already completed grade will be

A Pleasant Evening Sp int   i y Nioola
}: mi dents.
A most enjoyable dance was given at
"Liberty Hall" the residence of Mr.
and Mrs. F. A. Howse, yesterday even- [
ing.   Shortly aftereight o'clock a stranger to town would have been s! artled
by the appearance of hooded figures
wending their way through the streets
of Nicola, and might have been pardoned if he had expressed the thought of
there being a mona-tery in town.    The
monkish figures arrived at Liberty Hall
and amid a deep silence except for the I
music and a few suppressed giggles the
dancing started.   Mistakes of identity
were frequent and the spectacle of two j
men waltzing together in the dim re- j
ligious light, that heightened the weird
effect of the  hooded figures,  was a
common one.   The unmasking after the
third dance was  the cause of much
merriment and many surprises.    Dane-1
ing soon started again and  was kept
up till an early hour this morning, when |
the strains of "Auld Lang Syne" and
"They are jolly good fellows" brought a
very pleasant time,  which  had been
thoroughly enjoyed by all, to a close.
At the residence of Mr. and Mrs.
Wm. Riley a taffy pull brought a large
number of the young people together.
After some time spent in games and
ind intt resting word contests, the taffy
was brought in and pulled and was the
cause of much laughter. More frolics
followed and after refreshments had
oeen served the party broke up.
Rifle Competition.
Owing to the difficulty in obtaining a
���suitable ground it has been arranged to
hold the rifle shoot on Saturday on the
same place as the last turkey shoot,
namely to shoot into the hill behind the
manse. The distance will be 200 yards
ind the conditions have already been
,'iven. The shoot will start at 2 o'clock
sharp. This combetition is open to
members of the association only.
Disaster at Atlantic City.
A terrible disaster occurred at Atlantic City, N. J., on Sunday. The electric train on the West Jersey and Seashore R. K. jumped the track and three
coaches plunged into the sea. Fifty-
three passengers met a horrible death.
Heroic attempts were made to effect a
rescue but without avail. The unfortunate victims of the disaster had no
chance to save themselves. Twenty-
five bodies have been rescued. A strict
investigation is being made into the
cause of the disaster.
Steam Shovel Arrived,.
Information is to hand that the first
of the two large steam shovels to be
used by Maedonell Gzowski & Co. is on
the ground of the Cariboo Consolidated
Co. and the second will arrive in the
course of a few days. These shovels
are the largest made and will do the

Diamond Vale Coal.
The Diamond Vale Coal Company are
busy drilling on their property at the
Forks. No time is being lost and two
shifts are kept continually on the work,
with indications of good coal measures
gone through on the way down.
James Laird the foreman of the work
who is also a skilled diamond setter
came up recently from Vancouver Is-
| land to take over his duties.
The management of the company are
naturally reticent as to the results obtained from the drilling operations but
there is no doubt that there are good
indications of a large body of coal
awaiting development

not carried out, It was found impossible to have a game Married versus
Single, so sides were chosen by the respective captains and a very enjoyable
game was the result, neither side scoring a goal. After the game the players had tea at the residence of M. P.

Nicola, B. C, November 1,1906.
At the public meeting, particulars of which will be found in another column, held last Friday in
Nicola, it wxs decided to organize a
board of trade for the district and
a committee was appointed to draft
the necessary petition, and obtain
signatures. As this petition ought
to bt one representative of the district which the proposed board of
trade will cover,signatures from all
parts of the valley will be required.
These should not be difficult to obtain when on a carefui considerat-
��� ion of the subject the decided advantage of having a public body
unfettered by political bias and
working for the good of the whole
district can be seen. There is a
very prevalent opinion that the
time is hardly yet ripe for the formation of a body of this nature.
No greater mistake could be made.
It is just at a time like the present
when railroad transportation has
reached the valley that a strong
united effort on the part of those
interested iu its future should be
made to attract attention to the
boundless possibilities of the Nicola
Valley and its Mining Division.
There is no reason whatever, when
every other district of any importance has a representative body advertising its resources and calling
attention to its mineral wealth, that
this district should lag behind and
for want of a little enthusiasm and
public spirited enterprise on the
part of the residents see other localities with not one tithe of the
natural advantages of this district
attracting settlers and others to
make homes for themselves in their
midst. One great necessity of this
district is population and the addition of more homes and the attracting of settlers to this district
would alone be a sufficient reason
for the existence of a board of trabe
not to mention questions of general
public utility which are sure to crop
up and which a representative body
of this nature could handle.with
tact and to the general advantage
of the community. If the matter
is looked into carefully, it will be
seen that it will lie to the decided
financial benefit of every business
man, be he farmer, miner or store
keeper to place his name on the
list of signatures.
