NICOLA, B. C, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER L '_GQ7.
LABOR QUESTION
PROVINCIAL   OOVERNMENT TAKE
STEPS TO MEET DEMAND.
Circular  Letter Being Forwarded to
All Employe��� of  Latior.   Thoee
Requiring Help Should rill
Blanks Supplied.
The provincial authorities are endeavoring to find accurateh' what demand there ia throughout the province
for domestic and farm labor.
A considerable immigration of farm
hands and domestic help is expected
the in spring and early summer of 1908
under the arrangement with the Salvation Army, and the government is desirous of ascertaining as exactly as possible to what degree these may be assimilated.
Accordingly a circular letter, with
which is enclosed a printed form, has
been sent out to clerks of municipalities,
secretaries of farmers' institutes and
creamery companies, managers of farmers' exchanges and the most prominent
fruit growers aud ranchers, to postmasters and others, with the request
that the forms be distributed as widely
as possible.
Any person desirous of obtaining help
may get one of the forma, which should
be returned to the Provincial Bureau of
Information. Of course the above only
applies to agriculture and domestic
labor tnd docs i.ot affect in Any way the
trades or artisans.
The priuted blank contains spaces for
the names and addresses of employers,
also the captions "Help Wanted," "No.
and Class," "Accommodation for Help,"
"When Wanted," "Wages Offered,"
etc.   The letter in full is as follows:
"Victoria, October, 1907.
"Dear Sir: Letters are being constantly received by the Bureau of Provincial Information from persons desiring work on farms and orchards. These
applications are from the middle and
eastern provinces of Canada, the British
Isles and Northern Europe, and may be
divided into four classes, namely:
"1. Young men inexperienced in
farm work, wishing to learn practical
farm work and horticulture.
"2. Experienced farm hands, unmarried.
"3. Experienced farm hands, married (with families or otherwise),whose
wives are willing to take service with
their husbands.
"4.   Women domestic!.
"A majority of the applicants is of
class 1, but there is a considerable number of class 2. Class 3 is much less numerous, and there are very few applicants in class 4. Most of the married
men are desirous of having a dwelling
separate from that of the employers, an
arrangement which should commend
itself to those who look to securing permanent help.
"Under an agreement existing between the government and the emigra-
gration branch of the Salvation Army,
x considerable immigration of farm
hands and domestic help is expected
from Great Britain during the spring
and early summer of 1908.
"The government is very desirous of
securing the immigration to British Columbia of a reliable class of white labor,
and invites the earnest co-operation of
the farmers, fruit growers and dairymen of the province to that end.
"You are therefore requested to call
the attention of employers of labor in
your district to this letter, and request
them to All in, as comprehensively as
possible, tbe forms enclosed.
"R. G. Tatlow,
"Min. of Finance and Agriculture."

Nine Foot Seam Uncovered Near Ham
Uton Hill, Two Miles From Nioola.
Nine feet of good bituminous coal
has been uncovered on the Nicola Coal
Company's property, on the Hamilton
hill, about two miles from Nicola, this |
week, by R. A. Lambert, one of the
shareholders of the company. With one
man he has been engaged during the
week uncovering the seam at the outcropping, and also running an open cut a
short distanee from that point.
The seam is well defined and is no
(ioubt a continuation of the Coal Gulley
seam. Next week fuller particulars
will be given of the development.
This new seam of coal was discovered
several weeks ago by William Munro
while riding over the hills. Mr. Munro
is also a stockholder of the company.

The Financial Crista
With regard to the effect which the
present financial crisis in New York
will have on the country generally, and
the West in particular, it appears to be
the almost universal opinion that there
is little to fear in this direction. The
various business centres of the West
have all sent out reassuring expressions,
the general trend of which is that the
money supply is ample for all legitimate
purposes.
F. H. Mathewnon, manager of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce of Montreal, was one of the speakers at the
dinner which marked the close of the
annual convention of the Canadian
Wholesale Hardware Association. He
discussed financial conditions, saying
that at the present moment bankers
were notvery popular, since they were
declining to make advances, owing to
the stringency of the money market.
"It is true,,' said Mr. Mathewson,
"that we have no money to lend for
stock or real estate speculation or that
class of business, but I have yet to hear
of a single case from Halifax to Vancouver where a merchant or manufacturer entitled to credit could not get all
the money he was entitled to to carry on
his business. I think tbe bankers of
Canada are entitled to credit for taking
care of the business of the country as
they are doing. The business men of
Canada are getting all the money they
need to properly carry on their business,
but it has been hard work forthe bankers to get the money to carry on the
growing needs of this country. And if
we have patience I feel sure that during the next few months the sky will
clear, and that later on there will be
plenty of money for everybody to carry
on their business.
Arrangements   Being Made For Big
Conservative Convention at Vancouver.  Large Attendance
Expected.
On Wednesday evening a very large
and enthusiastic meeting was held at
Merritt, the object being to form an
Asiatic Exclusion League, and assist in
whatever way possible to induce the
governments to enact such legislation
to prevent the further immigration of
Asiatics into British Columbia.
The meeting was called to order by
Joseph Graham, when George Irvine
was elected as chairman. Mr. Graham
in a short address explained the objects
of the meeting and the league.
It being the unanimous wish of the
meeting to form a league, the name to
be given it caused some lively debate,
and the motion carried that it be called
the Merritt Asiatic Exclusion League.
The following officers were elected:
Hon. President, Ric. A. Fraser of the
Nicola Herald; President, A. Stephen
of G. B. Armstrong's general store;
Vice-president, D. Mclnnes of the B. C.
Beef Market; John Graham, Secretary-
treasurer; Executive Committee, S.
Calvert, Geo. Irvine and Frank Steel.
During the evening several addressed
the meeting and it was evident that all
were in sympathy with the movement,
as they realized the menace of the
Asiatics to the workingman and public
at large.
Fifty-one signed their names to become members, and it was decided to
hold the next meeting on Sunday, Nov.
10th, at 7 p. m. at Merritt.
After the general business was over
Frank Steel, Jos. Graham and Geo. Irvine
gave very interesting and instructive
addresses.
A vote of thanks was tendered the
chairman and Geo. Hygh for the use of
his rooms, and the meeting adjourned.

or other places where meals and berth
will be necessary, a fare of one and a

will purchase tickets one way only and
must obtain a receipt for same. Then
they will receive a certificate from the
secretary of the convention entitling
them to return free, exepting where the
fare and a third holds good, in the event
of which they will pay only one-third in
returning.
The committee in charge of the arrangements consists of Premier McBride and the presidents of the Victoria,
Vancouver, New Westminster and Nanaimo Conservative associations. This
committee is preparing strong resolutions and a constitution to present to
the convention.
EXPERT  OPINION

Wm. Mclntyre, of the Coldwater hotel
at Merritt, returned from Kamloops
Wednesday.
R. Sydney Smith leaves for Van

with his relatives.
Whose la the Timber?
W. Chester of Eholt was the defendant in action brought before Magistrate
McMynn on Wednesday at Greenwood
by S. McOrmond, also of Eholt. The
plaintiff claimed that Chester entered
on his mineral claim and had cut timber. Chester admitted cutting the
timber but claimed that he had done so
through a mistake concerning the lines
which marked off the claim.
Whether the right of a holder of a
mineral claim includes ownership of the
timber upon it, is a point that has
never been tested before here. On account of this fact the magistrate imposed no penalty, but stated emphatically that the defendant had no right
whatever to enter on the claim and cut
timber. Nor could he remove the timber already cut thereon.
This case is important for the community, because it touches a practice
all too general. It clearly establishes
the fact that the man who enters upon
another man's mineral claim to cut and
draw wood therefrom is guilty of theft.
Mr. Hygh arrived from Nanaimo on
Wednesday and is visiting with his son,
George Hygh of the Hotel Merritt, at

ON  NIOOLA   VALLEY  AS A   FIRST
CLASS FRUIT DISTRICT.
F. N. James, connected with the C.
P. R. steamship lines with headquarters
at Hong Kong, was in Nicola this
week visiting with his nephew, Sydney
Smith of the Bank of Montreal.

belt. There was also left in the hall a
dinner plate and a napkin. If articles
are found or the plate wanted call at
the Nicola Herald office.
A. W. Strickland, manager of the
Bank of Montreal, who has been absent
at his old home in Ontario, returned to
Nicola on Tuesday. For some time Mr.
Strickland's father has not been in the
best of health, and grave doubts are
entertained for his recovery.
Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture
Is Favorably Impressed With the
District.   Considers   It  a
First Class District
In an interview with J. R. Anderaon,
the Deputy Commissioner of Agriculture, when asked as to the prospects of
fruit growing in this district, he said
there could be no doubt about it being a
fruit district, and capable of raising almost all kinds of fruit that are grown
in the province, although except in especially favored spots it would be impossible to grow the tenderest varieties
of fruit. Winter apples, plums and
small fruits would do well here. He
had not had time to visit more than a
few of the orchards in the valley, but it
seemed to him that very little had been
done in the way of fruit culture, and
that it might be taken up with advantage. From conversations with growers
at Lower Nicola he thought that the
Spitzenberg would do well here, and if
such were the case, as he had no reason
to doubt, this variety could be grown in
a successful manner commercially, as
there would be a large market for them.
This variety is one of the best suited
for the English market and fetches the
highest price. That the district will
become a large fruit producer he had
no doubt, and if the local conditions
were carefully studied and complied
with, there is no reason why this district should not produce as fine fruits as
any raised in the province. He was
very well satisfied with his trip through
the valley, and the attendances at the
meetings were generally good. He
hoped before very long to make another
and more extended trip through the
district.
Conservative Convention.
The big convention to be held in Vancouver on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 22
and 23, promises to be an epoch-making
event in the history of Conservatism in
British Columbia.
The committee having the matter in
hand are sparing no effort to make it a
success, and the railways have offered
every encouragement in the way of reduced rates to delegates coming from
the various constituencies throughout
the province.
The purpose of the convention is
mainly to create a provincial organization and thus place the outlying districts in close touch with the central
body.
The need for such an association is
being fell more and more, and the policy outlined for the convention will be a
broad and comprehensive one in every
respect. All Conservative members,
either provincial or federal, will be
members of the convention ex-officio,
while each local constituency will send
ten delegates. This makes a possible
attendance of 420.
It is almost a certainty that Premier
Roblin of Manitoba and Hon. F. W. G.
Haultain of Regina, will be present and
with local speakers will address the
convention. It is proposed to make the
event an educator in the way of familiarizing local Conservatives with questions of a federal character.
The Canadian Pacific Railway has
agreed to give first-class single fares
good for return trip to delegates traveling over the railway or local steamship
lines.   To those coming by steamship
J. S. Gordon, School Inspector, was
in Nicola this week and reports school
matters in the valley as very satisfac
tory. Arrangements are being made
for a public school at Middlesboro', and
also at Merritt. A portion of the Nicola
and Lower Nicola districts will be taken
off and a new district made for the Merritt section.
G. L. Hilliard of the Hilliard House
has commenced an addition to the house
and will, when finished, have increased
bedroom, sitting rooms and bar room.
The Hilliard House is receiving its
share of patronage, and with the improvements in contemplation will be
able to accommodate the traveling public in first-class shape.
In another column will be found the
advertisement of the Douglas Lake
Cattle Company, offering a reward of
$1,500 for information leading to the
arrest and conviction of parties who
have obliterated brands on their horses
in the vicinity of Douglas lake. With
the reward offered by the government
it makes a sum of $2,000,
Evangelistic Services.
Asa Gordon, K. C, and Mre. Gordon,
Evangelists from Ottawa, will commence

Mrs. Gordon, by her sweet voice and
her spiritual talks combined with an attractive personal appearance, has become a very successful Christian worker.
Mr. Gordon is an effective speaker.
His practice in the legal profession enables him to present his theme in clear
and convincing arguments. It will be a
treat for the residents of the valley to
hear them.
