A football match between Married

beauty.   It has a great quality in possessing any kind of climata any person
wants. Great as the Anglo-Saxon is,
he deteriorates in tropical and subtrop-
ioal climates.
Washing the feet of your mountains
for hundreds of u'lesyou have the greatest ocean in th^world-an ocean which
teems with food products to a degree
equaled only by the Atlantic Ocean.
You have harbors literally for the
commercial navies of the world. It is
true that they are not developed to
any great extent yet, but the possession of those harbors is one thing that
British Columbia may be proud of, and
on which she can count for the future
of her transpacific trade. British Columbia is sometimes called mountainous;
I would rather call it a world of valleys.
In these valleys the richness and depth
of the soil, and in the great range of
the quality of the soil, you have a land
in which you can do anything from
raising cattle on bunch grass, to the
most highly developed cultivation the
world has known.
When one considers it, British Columbia has the vastest storehouse in
North America of undeveloped resources. In some of the great things British Columbia is to do she haa not yet
made her first start.
She has the greatest store of timber
in the world. British Columbia has the
last great store of dimension timber for
constructive purposes other than that
on other parts of the Pacific coast,
In your local areas and in the development going on in copper and in your
water powers and in your timber you
have the assurance in my mind that
British Columbia will some day be one
of the greatest manufacturing countries
in the world. Given, that in British
Columbia you have all these things,
nothing need worry you.
of this province and its advantages
have been under rather than over est-
mated, while in many parts of the province such as our own, want of transportation has been the cause of an apparent lack of appreciation of certain
natural advantages which otherwise
might have been taken advantage of
and utilised to the utmost.
Looking at the matter from a very
conservative standpoint there seems to
be a great future opening out before
this district and it ran only be a matter
of a few years before the Nicola Valley
will take its position as a producer of
as fine fruit as any grown in the
Advice to Fruit Growers.
The provincial fruit inspector has issued a circular in which attention is
called to the regulations of the provincial board of horticulture regarding
fruit placed on the market infected with
scale, insect pests or fungus disease,
which will be quarantined and if necessary destroyed. The circular draws attention to British Columdia's position
as a competitive fruit growing district
and advises each fruit growing district
to assume the responsibility of its reputation and the board of horticulture
will give some mark of encouragement
to the cleanest and best kept district.
Then follows the following timely advice:���
After the work of harvesting the
crop is over, the trees should be thoroughly pruned; cut out all the poor
wood and large laterals that are crowding the tree; this allows you to spray
to advantage'and gives the tree a chance
to breathe, and the sun a chance to
purify the wood and mature the fruit.
When the trees are thoroughly pruned
there should be no delay in its formation. Valid reasons for the ab"
solute necessity of such a body have
already appeared in these columns
and there is hardly need for there
repetition. To be successful however at should be clearly understood
that a body of this nature will be
of the utmost value not only tothe
business interests of the district
but should appeal to all residents
who will derive as great benefits
from it. A board of trade can be
of inestimable value to a district,
but to be so, all members must
never lose sight of its purposes,
whieh are for the advantages of the
llistrict first last and all the time,
Petty jealousies aud personal feeling
should be thrust ou one side and
every one should endeavor to do
their best to further the interests of
the district, whose success can in
great part be due to the united efforts of a corporate body of this
nature. As will be seen in another
column a meeting of those interested will be held tomorrow afternoon
to discuss the matter and it is hoped that a large number of the residents will attend.
outer 2 points.    The  winner of each
competition will receive a silver spoon,
and at the end of the series the scores
of each competition will be added together aud the best aggregate will entitle the winner to hold a silver cup for
the following year.   It is hoped that all
the shots of the district will turn up for
this competition and enter for it, as
should they enter later they will have
to start with a decided handicap against
them.   The comittee of the association
are prepared to do all in their power to
create interest in the sport and it is up
to those interested to show that their
efforts in this direction are appreciated.
The paper chase held on Thanksgiving
Day was a great success.   Twelve ladies
and gentlemen started on the trail left
by the hares, G. A. Lafferty and J. F.
Murray, who laid out a good course,
which was however rather difficult te
follow in some places.   The hares had
12 1-2 minutes start but were not pressed and increased their advantage at
the fii i-sh by over ten minutes.   The riding crops presented by A. W. Strickland were won by Mrs. F. A. Howst
and E. Riley.   After the paper chas
tea was served in the Bank Cottage by
the ladies auxiliary of the Association.
On Saturdrv a very enjoyable  afternoon was spent at tennis on the Association Grounds, quite a number turning
out to take part.    Some very good
games were played and during the afternoon those present enjoyed the hospitality of Mrs. 6. Murray at whose residence tea was served.
Survey Party Have Located Basy Grade
at Aspen Grove.  Not More Than
One and a Quarter Per Oent.
Easy Acccess to Mine*
No time is being lost in tne laying of
steel on the now completed grade. Already rails are laid to Tamerton Ranch
and it is expected that the first train
will arrive in Nicola on Saturday night.
Trains are now running every day bringing ub materials for the track, and the
ballasting gang are now in the vicinity
of Lower Nicola.
The survey party at Aspen Grove are
still busy on the location line there and
by means of two loops, one near Quilchena Falls and another near Pothole
Lake, have made the grade into this
rich mining camp an easy one. It may
be stated on the best authority that the
line from Quilchena to Aspen Grove
will give a grade of not more than one
and a quarter per cent. The survey-
party intend going over the line from
Aspen Grove to Quilchena and will then
look over the line from Quilchena to
Nicola, where they expect to be in

What Is First Class Ore?
Mining men and others will be interested in knowing what brand of copper
ore in the Butte district is considered
smelting or first class, and which second
class. John Guillie, general superintendent of Amalgamated Mines, in his
testimony in a recent mining suit, stat-
d that ores running in the neighborhood
of 6 per cent copper or more than this
quantity were called first class or smelting ore, meaning of course, that such ore
was usualiy treated or could be treated
at a profit without first passing through
the process of concentration.
There was a time when 6 per cent
copper ore was considered low grade in
Butte; so low, in fact, that not much of
it was used for any purpose save that
of filling old stopes. Where no stope*
were to be filled it was thrown over the
dumps, which is the secret of the present value of some of these scrap heaps.
In some of the mines the old stope
filling is giving way to barren material
and is going to reduction plants for
treatment. It is much better than the
ore coming from some of the veins.
Ore rnnning as low as 1 per cent will
yield a profit at the present price of
copper, while ore that averages from .
to 6 per cent is considered choice. The
stopes in the Speculator mine are full
of ore of this class. It was used ir
filling them years ago.
Britain is greatly interested in the decision announced recently by Kynochs,
Limited, ammunation manufacturers of
Birmingham, to adopt the metric system, both in weight and measure and
monetary dealings,

Nicola, B. C, Octobkr 25,1906.
There is too much reason to believe that an endeavour has been
made In some quarters to manufacture political capital out of the result of the negotiations at  Ottawa.
At the outset, the question is too
broad and of too much  importance
to the inhabitants of this province
to be treated as a political matter.
The matters which the conference
was called together  to  consider
concern Liberals as well as Conservatives.   But liefore even the conference opened attacks on the premier were begun by dispatches from
the province to the press of Eastern Canada in an attempt to dis
credit the provincial representative
to the conference.   Not  only was
it said that lie was not sincere in
his demands but that be was  more
anxious to find a grievance,and return with something on which he
could base a plea for an appeal to
the electorate than to get substantial recognition of the    provincial
demands.    Commenting on these
facts the News Advertiser says;
Fortunately these despical man-
oeuvers miscarried. British Columbia's case was so strong; the unfair
position she occupied under ex s ng
arrangements was so apparent, that
the representees of the sister provinces were prepared to recognizt
that fact and to do something n
ameliorate the situation. That
they have not gone far enough in
that direction, few will dispute.
We are inclined to think that some
of the members of the conference
realized this .while Mr. Fielding if
correctly reported, actually suggested that something more might
be done. In the face of these facts;
of the recognition by outsiders of
British Columbia's claims not for
generosity, but for simple justice in
tlie relative apportionment of the
amounts of the subsidies, what must
be thought of those in our own
province who for petty partisan
purposes, and the meanest and most
sordid of motives, used their utmost efforts,puny though they may
have been, and impotent as they
proved to be, to thwart Mr. Mc-
liride's proposals and to discredit
him with his colleagues in the conference? It seems to us that the
members of the Provincial Opposition will have a difficult task to
clear themselves before the electors
for this deliberate attempt to betray
Provincial interests for party purposes.
The Copper Market,
Indications point to a still higher price
for copper. The consumption of the red
metal during the past year has been
greater than the increase in production,
__nb the search for new mines is becoming keener. No copper is being sold
below 19 cents a pound for any time of
