NECESSITY OF PROMPT ACTION ON
PART OF OWNERS
lished by the Dominion Department of
Agriculture at Calgary for the convenience of the farmers and seed merchants of Alberta and British Columbia is
now fully equipped and in operation.
Seed will be tested at this seed labor-
atorj for purity and germination. The
purity test shows the amount of weed
seeds or other impurities contained in a
sample, and the names and quantities of
each kind. When a farmer is buying
seed or even if using his own, it is important that he ascertain whether or not
it is free from noxious weed seeds.
The germination test shows what percentage of the seed will germinate under favorable field conditions. Many
conditions affect the vitality of seed
such as unfavorable weather, immaturity, freezing before harvesting, lack of
proper storage or old age. Appearances are deceiving and often very good
looking seed is low in vitality.
A report of the result of each sample
sent in for purity test will be forwarded
within a couple of days from the date it
is received at the office,
The time required for final germination test of wheat, oats, barley and
clovers is ten days, timothy, rye grass,
etc. fourteen days, vegetable ten to
fourteen days. A preliminary report
will, if requested, be forwarded within
four to six days from the date of receipt
of sample.
Samples should be securely wrapped
in strong paper or enclosed in a cotton
bag, and should contain not less than
one ounce of grass seeds of all kinds or
white or alsike clovers, two ounces red
clover, alfalfa or other seeds of like
size, and three ounces or a small handful of wheat, oats and barley or other
large seeds.   The rate of postage is one
cent per ounce and should be prepaid.
All testing is done free of charge.

ten o'clock on Saturday night.
The deceased, whose maiden name
was Harriet Collett, was born in Grey
County, Ontario, in 1868. With her
husband she came to British Columbia
in 1891 and settled in Nicola. Mrs.
Hunter was known throughout the district for her kindness of heart. An excellent nurse, she attended the beds of
sickness of many sufferers and helped
to relieve their last hours. A loving
mother and affectionate wife, the sympathy of the whole valley is with her
relatives in their sad bereavement.
The deceased leaves a husband, two
sons and three daughters, a mother and
four brothers to mourn her loss.
The funeral took place on Tuesday
afternoon. Rev. D. K. Allan, assisted
by Rev. T. H. Wright, conducted the
service, which was held at the home
or the deceased, a short service being
also held in the church. N. J. Barwick,
Jas. Derby, A. Jackson, f, Lambert,
J. McNeill and W. Rice, all old friends
of the deceased, acted as pall bearers.
The funeral cortege ther proceeded to
the cemetery where, after a short service by Rev, D. K. Allan, the remains
of the deceased were laid to rest. The
funeral was attended by residents from
all over the district and testified to the
great respect and estimation in which
the deceased was held, and the sympathy of the community for the relatives
in their sad affliction.

On the return of the party of C.P.R.

their tour of inspection over the Spences
Bridge-Nicola line, General Superintendent Busteed stated to a reporter that
he found the road in very good condition and they would take the line over
the first of next month. Mr. Busteed
further remarked:
''The country along the road is prospering and the citizens are very anxious
that trains be put into operation immediately. As yet we have not discussed

Waterworks Must be Installed as Per
Agreement-Present Uncertainty
Holding Back the Progress
of the Town.
It may seem improbable that the
growth of Nicola is being held back by
the owners of the townsite, yet such is
undoubtedly the case. It is some
months now since the final agreement
with the railway company was signed
and there is no prospect yet of town
lots being placed on the market.
The agreement between the townsite
owners and the railway company is evidently a fair one, and certain conditions
are attached for each party to carry
out. So far as the railway company is
concerned, they have carried out their
part of the agreement and are ready to
carry out the remaining conditions. The
townsite owners, however, have only
partly fulfilled their part, and it is on
account of their holding back from carrying out the conditions of the agreement in their entirety, that the present
unfortunate seeming deadlock is due.
The following clause in the agreement
is responsible for the present condition
of affairs:-
The Grantor covenants and
agrees that on the execution of
this agreement and of similar
agreements in r is regard made
with (here are given tho names
of the different owners of property of which the townsite is
composed) he jointly with them
will employ the services of a
competent civil engineer to proceed to Nicola and there inspect
the possibilities of putting in a
waterworks system for the water supply of said townsite. If,
on the reporl of said engineer,
it is found that a system to consist of a reservoir on Clapperton
Creek which will give a reasonable supply and pressure, and
such pipe lines from the north
end of the town to Front street
as will supply the residents of
said townsite, including the
company, with water for domestic and lire and railway purposes, at a cost not to exceed ,
they will proceed forthwith to
put in such waterworks system.
Carrying out part of the above conditions, the townsite owners engaged a
well known civil engineer who came in
and whose report has been in the hands
of the owners for some time. His estimate of the cost exceeds the amount
stated in the above clause by about 15
percent. It should, however, be explained that besides allowing 10 per
cent, for contingencies, the visiting en-
gin er allowed in his estimate for some
18-inch pipe for irrigation purposes and
also included a sum for right of way of
the pipe line.
Making allowances for these, it may
confidently be stated that the waterworks scheme could be introduced at a
cost not exceeding the amount stated in
the clause given above.
Some of the townsite owners are evi-
! dently under the impression that because
their engineer's estimate exceeds the
amount stipulated they are therefore
i clear and need not carry out the requir-
' ed condition.
The townsite owners signed the agreement with their eyes open and were
surely cognizant of the different
clauses in the agreement to which they
appended their signatures. They cannot, therefore, plead ignorance as to the
conditions in the clause, nor can they,
as some of them are evidently trying
to do, shirk the responsibility they assumed when they signed the agreement.
Without some such scheme the lots are
of little value as conditions are at present; and it is based on the fact that a
waterworks scheme would be introduced
that the scale ol prices for the lots was
fixed.
Quick and energetic action on the part
; of the townsite owners is required if
they, as they undoubtedly should,  wish
| to see Nicola go ahead, and further
shilly-shallying over details is bound to
stunt the growth of the town hurting
its general business interests. It is to
be sincerely hoped, if only for their own
sakes, that the townsite owners will
realize the necessity for prompt measures in this matter.
Much valuable time has already been
wasted and it is surely not asking too
much that the townsite owners, who
| are a body of business men, get together and at once make arrangements for
either installing the waterworks scheme
themselves or hand it over toother parties to carry out. It is hardly credible
that the present owners should be so
short-sighted as not to realize the harm
they are undoubtedly doing by their indecision over the matter, and it is to be
hoped that they will at once get down
to business and have the matter settled.

Electric Light Installed. - Many New
Buildings are Being Erected.-A
Sawmill Plant In Position.
*\m -New Power House.
The Diamond Vale Coal & Iron Mines
Limited are making rapid headway with
the work on their property at the Forks.
Where previously nothing was to be seen
but a level flat with a few cattle graz-
overit, there is now quite a little village
with modern conveniences such as electric lighting and telephone communication, and with the hum of business all
around.
A fine suite of offices is being erected
and is rapidly approaching completion
and will be ready very soon for the accommodation of the office staff who are
now occupying a temporary building
near the shaft. A large and commodious bunk house with accommodation for
50 men has been already erected, and
this is now fully occupied, necessitating
the erection of another bunk house for
the men who are being taken on daily.
The culinary and like operations are
carried on in a separate building. A
well equipped blacksmith shop is another
of the many buildings now occupied and
in operation. A warehouse for the storage of steel, hardware and other materials is located conveniently to the
blacksmith shop and the shaft.
The present power house, which is
only a temporary building, has been
erected adjacent to the shaft and is
equipped with a horizontal boiler of the
locomotive type and an auxiliary vertical boiler. The hoisting engines are of
the latest type and fully equal to their
required work. The electric lighting
plant is independent and consists of a
dynamo which is driven through belt
transmission by a vertical engine, which
is supplied with steam from the main
boiler. Current is supplied in and
around the power house at a pressure
of 125 volts and on the general outside
circuit at 100 volts.
The gallows frame has been completed
some time now and the actual work of
sinking the shaft commenced on Monday
morning, under the direction of Jos.
Goldsworthy, who is superintendent at
the mines. It is expected that an average of three feet in depth will be sunk
each day and at this rate of working it
will not be long before the first seam of
coal is reached. This is fairly rapid
progress for shaft sinking, especially
when it is remembered that this includes
the timbering. The shaft will be a
double compartment one and is 10 feet
by 10 feet. Two No. 7 Cameron pumps
are awaiting connecting up for use in
the shaft.
The erection of a new and commodious power house is being proceeded
with and the foundations are now being
laid for the new water tube boiler which
arrived recently. This boiler, of which
the Babcock & Wilcox Co. are the makers, is of the most modern type, is of
300 horsepower and will have a working
pressure of 160 pounds.
The sawmill plant is already on the
ground and is in process of erection.
The general position of the different
buildings has been plauned with a view
to the highest working efficiency of the
plant as a whole.
The work already done reflects credit
on the management and the company
are to be commended on the rapid and
satisfactory way in which they are getting to work in unlocking some of the
treasure vaults of the Nicola Valley,

THE LEGISLATURE.
Tile provincial legislature again
fa in session, the formal <>|H.-iiing
having taken place last ThaVatU) ,
The speech from tin throat W
lull of interest and hears out in a
marked degree, the promises uade
Ly the McBride administration
previous to the late election, with
regard to various legislative matters.
The Assessment Act is to lie
amended providing for a decrease
in the taxation on real and personal property, and a hill to this effect
has already heen introduced hy the
Hon. R. G. Tatlow, who will also
introduce a bill to compel pedlars
in unorganized districts to takeout
licenses.
Legislation with regard to coal
and petroleum licenses in South
Kast Kootenay will also be introduced, which will amend the present unsatisfactory state of affairs
there.
Perhaps, however, the most important matter contained in the
speech is that in connection with
providing a sum in the estimates
for the purpose of obtaining a full
report on the subject of irrigation
and the available sources of water
supply in the "dry belt."
This is in the highest degre necessary and the government are to
be commended for their action iu
this matter, which will undoubtedly appeal to the residents of Nicola
Valley.
If a thorough and systematic
scheme of irrigation can be inaugurated, thousands of acres of lands
up to now valueless, unless for
grazing purposes, can be brought
under cultivation and so help in
the furthur prosperity and progress
of this province.
The letting apart of a portion of,
the crown lands of the province to
create a fund for the establishment \
and maintenance of a provincial
university is a measure which will
be heartily endorsed throughout
the province.
