It is very probable that the line will

While the question of the time-

A gentleman taking orders for a
coast, clothing house peddled the
salve around town on Monday. His
rake-off, however, was nothing to
write home about. This is as it
should be. Most of the merchants
in Nicola, and down the line, can
take your measure for tailor-made
clothing superior to what these roving canvassers usually pass out, and
at a lower price, too. They are
enabled to do this by reason of the
obvious fact that they have no middlemen's commissions and travelling expenses to pay. Your local
merchant is here to stay, and you
can depend upon getting what you
order; he is dependable; he holds
his trade by satisfying his customers. With the traveling agent you
always take a long chance. And
is it not reasonable that we should
patronize those who are the financial and business backbone of the
town, whether we desire clothing
or what-not ? Reciprocal commercial intercourse is essential to the
promotion of healthy growth in any
locality. The guy who drops in
from where the buildings grow tall
today with a smooth spiel, and
leaves tomorrow with a wad of our
long green for commodities easily
obtainable from the local business
men, is giving tlie town a black
eye in two places.
England is paying unusual attention to her waterways just now.
Temperance people will rejoice, for
in view of the fact that the mother
country holds the ale-drinking record forthe world, she will probably
pay less attention to her beer- ways.
Sir Richard Cartwright will bring
in a measure to provide old age
pensions in the Dominion HOUM.
Well! well! old Sir Dick aud Carrie
Nation continue to bob up occasionally, don't they ?
Vancouver has of late becflleveling in the excitement of a burglary
epidemic, and the police are all

of the World doesn't liy the crimes
to those awful Conservatives.
Boost and the world boosts with
you ; knock and you knock alone.
Boost!     Don't boom !
Outside opinion, when uttered by
men of known capacity, is always
appreciated. Watson Boyle, of
Bozeman, Mont., left for his home
on Tuesday after spending several
weeks in Nicola and district. Mr.
Boyle is a mining man and for the
past few month has been touring
Yale and the Similkameen as a representative of Montana capitalists.
He was enthusiastic over the splendid showings he had come in contact with during his sojourn on
this side of the line, and confidently
predicted the broadest development
activity from now on in the two
districts mentioned.

The state of Montana is having
her own troubles these days in the

February no daily papers were issued in the cities of Butte, Helena
and Anaconda for several days on
account of a clash with the typographical unions; then the telephone girls refused to "Hallo" until their pay envelopes grew fatter;
and now, the miners threaten a!
general tie-up unless their scale is
raised to $4 a day. This latter, if
it materializes, will affect ten thousand miners and cause a serious
eonditou of commercial affairs.
