Year Dances Were Good - Local
Beer Will be on the Market
ln a Few Weeks.
The first ball under the aus
pices of Merritt Union of the
United Mine Workers of Am-
t
erica, was held in Hyland's
hall last Friday evening and
was a success. I he hall was
crowded to its full capacity and
the committee had left nothing
undone for the comfort and
pleasure ol their guests. A
sumptuous repast was served
about midnight at the residence
of Mrs. Marshall and the many
choice delicacies which had
been prepared were done justice
too. It was near 4 a. m. that
the merry party broke up and
it was unanimous that Merritt
Union knew how to entertain
their guests in royal style.
B. P. Little, superintendent
of the Diamond Vale and Mrs
Little returned on Mouday
from a trip to the coast.
J. Hogan has purchased the

very enjoyable party, the occasion being a leap year dance
held by the ladies of Merritt.
Arrangements had only been
made a few days before, but
they were complete and guests
were in attendance from differ
ent parts of the valley who enjoyed themselves to the utmost.
At midnight a lunch fit for a
king was served above the hall
and it was evident that the
At Home in Pooley's Hall
Monday Evening.
On Monday evening, March 2nd,
what may well he called the dance
of the season was held in Pooley's
hall. Nicola. The invitations of
the hostess, Mrs. Pooley, were well
responded to and the hall which
was tastefully decorated, proved if
anything rather too small for the
gathered assembly. A capital program had been arranged and copies
tastefully got up were posted up at
each end of the room, these were
again set off by the Tamerton ranch
brand worked in fine leaves.
The music was excellent; the
orchestra consisting of piano, violin
and flute, the latter adding greatly
to the beauty of the pieces played.
A delightful supper was served
in the Nicola Athletic Association
rooms, and full justice was done
to the good things provided. At
the close of supper Dr. Tutill favored the company with a solo, most
appropriate to the occasion, "Good
Company," the chorus being taken
up by all present. Dancing was
continued after supper with even
added vigor and one of the most
enjoyable dances held in Nicola,
was brought to a close by the singing of "Auld Lang Syne" and
ringing cheers for Mrs. Pooley
about 3 a. m.

Nineteen Majority in New

After being in power for twenty-
five years, the New Brunswick lib'

A bill is before the provin-1situation P���^11? ������*< the
cial legislature to ratify an
agreement with the Grand
Trunk [Pacific re the Indi. n
reserve and townsite lands at
Prince Rupert. The company
agrees to pay $2.50 an acre to
the province lor its reversion
ary right, the province retaining one-fourth of the land. The
company is to co operate in the
subdivision of the land, paying
three fourths of the expenses.
The company also agrees, as
far as possible, to purchase all
supplies from local merchants,
and to start actual construction
not later than June 1st and to
proceed with actual construction till completed in British
Columbia. The company will
use only white labor unless it
can be shown to the satisfac

is impossible to obtain this.

1 government having only 15 members and the opposition 31. The
conservatives are greatly elated for
nesides having to contend with the
ordinary resources of the defeated
liberal government, Hon. Wm.
Pugsley, minister of public works in
the Laurier government, lent the
government the full force of his
influence, making promises of public works in return for the support
of the government candidates.
Premier Robinson narrowly escaped defeat in Westmoreland
where the liberals carried all four
seats.
Four members of the government were defeated.
This is the first occassion on
which the secret ballot has been
used in New Brunswick, and Conservatives naturally declare that the
first occasion, when men could
vote exactly as they pleased has
shown the exact opinion of the people. The conservative leader, Mr.
Haztn, made a big fight on the
secret ballot plank, and it was largely through his efforts that this
change in the method of voting was
made.
Frank M. Davis arrived in Nicol;. on Monday and is visiting with
friends.
Disastrous Fire.
In a fire which completely
destroyed the common sch.ol
building in Collingwood, Ohio,
a suburb of Cleveland on Wednesday, one hundred children
lost their lives. The fire was
started by an overheated furnace. The flames quickly spread
but a panic ensued when the
building filled with smoke, and
the 400 children attempted to
escape. The pupils are most
little children ranging in age
from nine to ten years.
ladies eff >rts were appreciated
by the manner in which justice
was done the spread. The
dancing was continued until a
later hour.

Kamloops Presbytery.
The meeting of the Kamloops Presbytery held at Kamloops last, week was
well attended and considerable business
was transacted. Among those appointed to the general assembly which will
meet in Winnipeg in June, was the Rev.
D. K. Allan of Nicola. Applications
were received from Princeton and
Quesnel which are mission stations, to
be raised to the status of augmented
congregations.   These were granted.
Among the business items was the
adoption of a scheme for congregations
to pay in part the traveling expenses of
commissioners to the genera! assembly.
The closing hours were spent in a discussion on church union, in which every
member took part. Opinion seemed
pretty evenly divided on the subject.
Work Progressing Satisfactorily With
Development   Shipments of Ooal
Sent  to   Vancouver   and
Will Be Increased.
The very fine showing made by
the Diamond Vale Iron & Coal
Mines, of late has been a source of
gratification to the officials and the
many shareholders in Vancouver,
says the. News-Advertiser. Since
the property has got into the producing class, there is a steady demand for this stock, and 100,000
have been sold, according to the
statement of the president, T. J.
Smith. The price was 20 cents,
but the last has been sold at that
figure, and an increase has been
made to 25 cents.
The output at present is sixty
tons per day and this will shortly
be increased when the permanent
equipment now in course of construction is completed. The force
of men will also be increased by
about thirty when the facilities are
in place.
B. P. Little the superintendent,
returned from Vancouver on Monday, where he had been on company's business and was acconr
panied by Benjamin Browett, who
will be superintendent under Mr.
Little, who, until the present has
looked after all the engineering,
aud with the expansion of operations another practical official is
necessary. Mr. Browett has for
some time been with the Western
Fuel company at Nanaimo.
The company are shipping three
cars of coal a week to the coast and
this amount will be increased in a
very short time. The quality is of
the best and besides having demand
for same at the coast has a good
market locally. With the present
progress, no difficulty whatever is
expected in carrying out the estimate, namely, that 300 tons per
day will be produced by midsummer and 500 tons per day by the
end of this vear.
Constables Clark and Graham
raided two Chinese houses iu town
this morning and found a large

Will Finance Winnipeg.
Members of the City Council of
Winnipeg in informal session Friday
afternoon, unanimously agreed to accept
a proposition presented by Comptroller
Evans and Alderman Riley, as a result
of their trip to Montreal, by which the
the Bank of Montreal will finance the
city.
The bank offers to place 1,500,000
pounds of the city's securities on the
London market. The proceeds from the
sale of those securties will clean up the
outstanding current liabilities, provide
for new work and give the city at least
$1,000,000 in cash to put back into the
sinking fund. The bank agrees also to
allow an overdraft of $2,000,000 if
necessary, within the next five months. THE NICOLA HERALD
