The Diamond Vale Coal and Iron
Mines Limited, during the past three
months, have been quietly negotiating
for the purchase of thi proved coal

past weekjhav- el.wj with the owners
of two thousam five nundred acres at

put on from 25 to 40 men on sinking and
conriiiiction wOrk. I understand ' The
Forks' will be headquarters for the operating department, which will be a
good thing for .he Nicola Valley.
The Coldwater basin has been already drilled ;:i so many places that we
will not require to put down more than
a few holes b��fove th I location for the
shaft and ,.;trfaee plant can be determined. Tlie coal seam underlying the
Coldwrtcr basin averages seven feet in
thickness and is of good coking quality.
Our holdings there are estimated t
erty with most successful results.  Coal,tontain * little over twenty million tons

Since that da._ th. researches of tht

have provided mi;rv. useful information

With a company of this standing
���-.tarting up extensive development work
and plat, prepared to get out coal at
once, the advantages to the district are
obvious, and every one will wish this
company the best of luck in carrying
out their operations. It means, once
they have started work, quite an extensive pay ro' and the bringing in of
large supplies 'or the use of the mines.
The conpany his worked hard and their
perys ant "nd praiseworthy efforts to
loccte coal in the valley, now that they
are crowned with success, deserve the
thanks of th'j whole community which
will dii __y benefit from their efforts.

NICOLA    TOWN Sll E fo"owinK eveninK rePeat��l OA lecture
! at Lower Nicola. On Sunday large
audiences at both appointments were
delighted with his clear expositions of
Divine Truth. Special music waa rendered by the choir at Lower Nicola and
the clurches were artistically decorated
I with flowers, fruit, grain and vegetables reminding those present of the
wisdom and goodness of a kind benefactor in providing for the wants of
every living creature.
This is the first visit of the doctor to
the valley and he was very favorably
impressed with the natural beauty of
the surrounding country and with the
future hopeful outlook for material
growth and prosperity in Nicola Valley.
W. R. Pearce of Calgary, the assistant land commissioner in B. C. of the
C. P. R., arrived in Nicola yesterday.
This morning he interviewed the different owners interested in the Nicola
townsite and amicable arrangements
were come to whereby the townsite
question will be definitely settled in the
course of a few days.
A meeting of those interested will be
held in Vancouver next week and the
necessarv final arrangements made.
One noticeable feature of the agreements and one worthy of all praise is
the arrangement for the organisation of
a sinking fund for water wotks in connection with the townsite. It is expected that the way is now thoroughly cleared for tie placing of the townsite on
the market. We understand that Mr.
Pearce Iris gone to Douglas Lake today
to Make arrangements with regard to
stock yards and also some matters connected with the right of way.    ,
Propoaad Telephone Tolls.
A meeting of the local subscribers to
the government telephone system was
I held in the court house, Nicola, on Mon-
I day afternoon, when the matter of the
'proposed change in telephone rates
came up for discussion. The general
opinion of those present was that the
change would prove a decided hardship
to subscribers in Nicola and throughout
the valley and would I e a hindrance
rather than a help to the increase of
business. After some discussion it was
decided to wire to Duncan Ross, M. P..
calling his attention to the proposed
changes and objecting strongly to them
being made, full particulars of the matter to be sent to him by mail.

Well  Known  Kamloopa   Man   Meets
Death on the ��oad.
A serious accident attended with fatal
results occured this week on the Kamloops road about one mile from Mrs.
Palmer's ranch. John F. Barber who
hasbeen working for some time on Joseph Collett's ranch was returning on
Tuesday afternoon from a visit to Kamloops accompanied by G. McLean. Barber was riding some distance ahead of
his companion and when about one mile
past Mrs Palmer's ranch his horse shied
and he was thrown from his horse.
When McLean rode up he found Barber
lying in the road unconscious and his
horse some distance away, He did all
in his power to assist the injured man
and after tying up the horse went over
to Collett's for assistance. He returned
and Barber was removed to the house
where even 'Mn_ was done to restore
him to consciousness but without avail.
Dr. Tutill was sent for and on his arrival
a thorough examination was made and
it was found that the body was completely paralysed, death resulting at
5.45 on Wednesday morning. The body
was removed yesterday afternoon to
Kamloops for interment. The deceased who was 1 bout 45 years of age was
well known in Kamloops and district and
leaves a widow and several children to
mourn his loss.

River to be Removed to
Olve Clear Passage.
C. B. Sword of New Westminster,
Dominion Fisheries Inspector, and J. T,
Edwards of Kamloops who is connected
with the department of fisheries, visited
the valley last week and made an examination of the river and its tributaries.
Mr. Sword after inspecting the river
at Nicola proceeded down the valley to
Lower Nicola and on to Spences Bridge
whence he went on to the coast. He
left instructions with regard to the various fish traps and other obstacles to
the free passage of fish up the river being removed and also drew attention to
the necessity of more watchfulness being required on the part of the authorities so as to prevent a repetition of
these reprehensible practices. J. T,
Edwards accompanied Mr. Sword on
his tour of the river and then proceeded
to visit the various lakes between here
and Otter valley.
The intention is to stock those lakes
that are suitable with fish and endeavor
in every way possible to make the various lakes good breeding grounds for
fish. Already, under the instructions
left by Mr. Sword the Nicola river has
been cleared of a lot of brush and rubbish which had accumulated for some
time. The alteration is particularly
noticeable above the dam where there
is now an uninterrupted passage for
fish going up the river. There are still
a few places further down the river
which require clearing and these will be
attended to without delay.
Mr. Edwards intends paying a further
visit hare later in the year and will
then make a strict examination of the
river and will go over the ground and
find out the most suitable lakes which
which will be stocked with fish.
Pastorate May Be  Extended  to  Five
The Methodist General Conference
liel.ljui Mount real last week dealt with
the question of the length of term of
Pastorates. The Committee on this
subject adopted a resolution favoring
five years as the limit instead of four
as at present. At the meeting of the
Church Union Committee, one of the
members stated that no plan of action
met with anything like unanimous approval. The fact that union might en- j
danger some of the fundamental princi- j
pies or doctrines of Methodism was laid'
stress upon and received a degree of
support. The decision of the conference
is likely to be similar to that of the
Presbyterian General assembly at their
last meeting.
Governor General Visits the Capital
Victoria was en fete last Friday to
welcome His Excellency Earl Grey,
governor general of Canada. Earl Grey
was accompanied by Lady Grey, Lord
Howick, Lady Evelyn and Lady Sibyl
Grey, Captain Trotter and Leverson
Gower, private secretary to his excellency. The party were met at the government buildings by Mayor Morley
supported by the aldermen of the city,
and an address was read welcoming
Earl Gray to Victoria. After replying
to the civic address the vice-regal party
were escorted through the city which
was brilliantly decorated for the occasion, and proceeded to Government
House. On Saturday the party visited
Esquimalt and on Monday evening a reception was held in the government
buildings. The vice regal party will
spend some time at the coast and will
visit different parts of Vancouver Island and the inlets on the mainland and
are expected to arrive in Vancouver on
Tuesdav next week.

The law in RgUtl to the publication of land notices is at present
the subject of tome controversy  in
the Ashcroft anil Kamloops papers,
Htnl they are having a wordy warfare M to ulticli of them should re-1
cei\e notices r__r___U_f certain land j
in the I.illtH-t district. The law reads
thtt notices must appear in the pap
er published anil circulating  in the
district wherein such hind lies or in
the absence of such local  paper in
the one  nearest  thereto.    This is
definite enough but the interpretation of it is causing quite a flutter
in the local papers referred to.   We
have no wish to enter into a newspaper controversy but it seems to
u . that perhaps the Kamloops papers
are a little too greedy and we should
like to draw their attention  to thi
fact that both papers have been in
the habit of receiving and inserting
land notices which by right ought
to have  appeared in The Nicol;
Herald.    The notices were postei
up in the governmen. office hen
and yet were published in the Kamloops papers, and the land in question was most decidedly in theNicola
district.    Again by no possible stretch of imagination could either oi
the Kamloops papers make out that
Aspen Grove was in Kamloops district yet applications for the purchase
of land in that locality  were published.    It seems  to  us that  tin
proper course to pursue iu  a cast
of that sort was to return tlie notice

proper paper in which publication
should be made.   There should be
no question as to the extent of the
Nicola   District as the   northern
boundary of this district is the south
ei u line of the Dominion Railway
belt.   We are sure that we _____
only to call the attention of our
Kamloops confreres to this fact for
them to rectify any future occurrences of the practice of publishing
these notices iu the papers.   With
regard to our readers we should like
to call their attention to these facts
Utd also to the illegality of publishing notices in other than the district paper. We admit that this practice has possibly been continued
through ignorance of the law, and
trust that we need not again draw
attention to this matter.
district. While this is so however,
we think the possession of such a
institution in our midst would not
be the unmixed blessing that some
of its supporters would have us believe. However, there will be no
harm in having the discussion on
the subject, although we are afraid
it will take more than the usual
threadbare arguments to convince
those present of any material ad
vantage to be derived from the presence of such an institution in this
district. It is hoped that as large an

Limited particulars of which are announced in our columns this week
will mean much to the Nicola Valley
ind its residents. This Company
has so consistently prosecuted work
00 their properties at Quilchena
dining the last three years that it
is an earnest of what they will do
on their new properties at the Porks.
We are glad to see this new company branching out and we believe
it is a question of a very short time
before they will be shipping bittim-

After an illness of only eight days, Dr.
J. M. Lefevre died at his residence
Vancouver Saturday morning. Dr. Lefevre came to the Terminal city in 1886
and was elected alderman in that year.
He became afterwards interested in the
telephone service,and it was largely due
to his efforts that the smaller companies
of the province became merged in the
British Columbia Telephone Company,
of which he was managing director.
He invested in real estate in the early
days, and with the increase in values
became wealthy, being rated as worth
$500,000. Of late he has been a sufferer
from Blight's disease, which was the
