tended Meeting Last Week   Kir
nances ln Oood Shape and
Outlook Bright
The meeting of the Polo Club h'-ld a}
Quilchena last week was well attended
and was thoroughly enthusiastic with
regard to the prospects of the club during the coming season. After a most
satisfactory financial report had been
given by the secretary, G. A. Lafferty,
the meeting proceeded with the election
of office-bearers. The following gentlemen were unanimously appointed:
Hon. President-J. B. Graves.
Prehident-Jos. Guichon.
Vice-President-F. W. Jackso.i, S.
Kirby, J. N. Moore, A. W. S'.rickland.
Secretary-Treasurer-G. A. Lafferty.
Captain-G. A. Lafferty.
For a practice ground the club have
b.ien fortunate in obtaining the old race
track, and when this is put in order the
eiub will have one of the best little polo
g.-ounds in the province'.
As an earnest of the work the club
intends doing, they are holding sports
oi, their ground tomorrow (Saturday)
a.id the following is the program:
Half-mile open race. 1st prize $10;
2nd prize, $3.   Entry fee $1.
Gymkhana-Quarter-mile polo ponies
14 1-2 hands and undir; threading the
needle race; cigar and soda race; hitting polo ball race; hurdle race.
Gymkhana events are open only to
members of the polo club.

In the evening a Cinderella dance will
be held in the Quilchena hall. Dancing
will commence at 8.30 sharp, and a
charge of5(lcwillbe madeforgentlemen
to defray��expenses.
Numerous enquiries are being made
with regard to the polo club, and many
new members are being enrolled. The
club will pay visits to Grand Prairie and
Kamloops during the season, and these
and Kelowna will viait Quilchena before
the close of the season.
The sports on the club grounds tomorrow afternoon should on n i account
be missed, as some of the best riders in
the district are members of the club
and will furnish an afternoon's sport
that will be hard to beat in the upper
country.
Full particulars of the races, and applicants for membership can obtain the
necessary information from the secretary, G. A. Lafferty, Nicola.
Dukedom For Strathcona
The statement has bem going the
rounds in eastern political circles to the
effect that His Majesty would in the
near future' confer a dukedon upon Canada's High Commissioner, I.ord Strathcona, who will naturally resign the office ol Canadian High Commissioner to
he replaced by Sir Frederick Borden.
It has also been slated that May 24th is
the date fixed for the decree. It is said
that His Lordship will continue to reside in London most of the time.
ITEMS OF INTEREST
COAL 8TRIKB  PRACTICALLY  SET-
TLHD BT THE VOTE.
To Abandon Prince Rupert.
According to an Ottawa dispatch, it
is believed there that the G. T. P. company has abandoned Prince Rupert as
the western terminal of the road. Construction on the eastern section of the
G. T. P. will be commenced in a few
days.

The Conservative party is strengthen-
ening its organization for the next general election. The proposed Dominion
Conservative Party Convention to have
been held this summer is off for the
present, but the Hon. R. L. Borden is
to tour the country from Nova Scotia to
British Columbia, visiting every province and making himself acquainted
with practically every constituency.
LO.AL NEWS.
Mrs.   C.  Barbour  was  visiting at
Coutlee yesterday.
All roads will lead to Nicola on Victoria Day-May 24th.
Mr. and Mrs. T. 0. Townley, of Vancouver, were in Nicola on Tuesday.
Dr. A. K. Connolly, of Vancouver,
has been rusticating for the past few
days in Nicola and vicinity.
Rev. T. H. Wright leaves today for
the session of the Methodist Annual
District Meeting which will be held at
Kamloops on Monday and Tuesday.
Jos. R, A. Richards, proprietor of
the Coutlee Hotel at Coutlee, returned
on Monday's train after an absence of
six weeks at the coast and Harrison
Hot Springs.
0. S. Bent, of Vancouver, spent a
few days in Nicola during the past week
visiting his uncle, Gen. Bent, before
leaving on a trip to Fairbanks, in the
Yukon Territory.
Methodist District  Meeting at  Kam
loops Next Week -Judgment Re
served In Monro vs. Gillie
Estate , Case..
Although the vote of the district
showed a majority of the miners willing
to accept the proposed agreement, no
contract has yet been signed by the
miners, but the operators have already
signed. G. G. S. Lindsay, general manager of the Crows Nest Pass Coal Co.,
left for Toronto on Saturday, to consult with the board of directors. This
is taken locally as a sign that everything has now been amicably settled.
Seen on Sunday, President Sherman
of the mine workers stated that it would
probably be two weeks before all the
men were back working again, and even
then the mines would be short-handed,
as so many men had left the district.
"In any case," he said, "I predict a
coal famine next fall. The cessation of
work has already assurred this, and
even if the men were to go back today
the mines would not get full complements of men before fall."
Nearly all operators have left for
their homes, one or two only remaining
and they will leave shortly. On the arrival of Secretary Macdonald the district board meeting will be held, first
thing, to determine whether the agreement should be signed or not. So far,
the board members here are non-com-
mital, not saying whether they will
sign or otherwise, and a slight feeling
of uneasiness still exists, although no
groups longer congregate on the street
corners and the excitement has apparently died down.
The vote of the coal miners on the
proposed agreement for district 18, as
cast at the various local centres, is officially announced.
The majority for the agreement over
the whole district is 375, the total vote
being 1875.
Andy Hunkers New Strike.
Andy Hunker, famed as the discoverer of Hunker Creek, and C. A. Leavr ,
\ a Nevada and California hard rock miner, left Dawson quietly several days ago
and are rejKirled to be stampiiling somewhere toward the Rocky Mountains,
northeast of Dawson and perhaps to a
destination beyond the divide somewhere
within the Mackenzie watershed.
Considerable excitement has been created in a quiet way, and some of the
more curious are said to have started on
the trail of Hunker and Leavitt. Some
of the wise ones say that the men are
bound for the Wind river or the Peel
river district, and others think they may
be going further into the Mackentie
valley.
Andy Hunker is well known in the interior, having some years ago resided at
Kamloops. At one time he was engaged excavating the ground behind the
town for the water reservoir, and for a
josh on some of his friends he "salted"
the earth and let a few in on the quiet.
For a short time there was great excitement and all the ground in the
neighborhood was staked. Those who
did not "bite" had the laugh, with Andy, on the crowd who staked claims.
A Location Notloe.
Below is given what is claimed to be
a bona fide copy of a location notice
posted on a claim MU Cornucopia, Ore.

heaven and the other place nnd is the

shown to beat it:

Do hereby locate for ourselves alone,
Fifteen hundred feet radius around this
stone;
Together   with    mineral   and   water

A'l placer lands and townsites,
All veins and ledges within our line
Of brass and gold or other mine.
We claim all coal and oil as well
From the top of the sagebrush down to

George Irvine, of Seattle, a manufacturer of cement and plaster work, has
taken up his residence in Nicola, and
will move his family over here during
the present summer. Mr. Irvine was
in Nicnla nine years ago and since that
time has traveled largely through southern B. C. and the coast states, and incidentally acquired considerable of this
world's goods, but he says that no spot
has struck his fancy so much as Nicola,
particularly as an ideal placeof summer
residence.
Munro vs. ililliu Estate.
The case of Munro vs. executors Gillie estate, was heard at the Kamloops

A DAY OF SPORT
VICTORIA   DAT   WILL    BE   CBLE
KR .TED IN NICOLA.
Lepers Shipped to China.
Monday morning the entire colony of
six Chinese lepers, which hitherto has
been located on an island in the Gulf,
was shipped to China by a special steamer chartered by the Dominion government. This step is the outcome of an
arrangement arrived at between Canada
and China and in future all leperous
Chinese caught within the Dominion
will be returned to China at the expense
of the government of the Celestial
Kingdom.
Touch of High Life.
A sympathetic jury at Seattle on
Thursday, not only acquitted Ruth Jackson for murdering her husband, but
passed the hat, the jurors contributing
fifteen dollars on receiving Ruth's promise to be good always. She next day
was in prison again, having taken the
jury's fifteen for one tremendous
"souse."
Foresters' Reunion.
Arrangements are under way for the
holding of a grand reunion of Foresters
from all lodges of the Ancient Order in
Vancouver next August.
Vancouver to Have New Paper.
Vancouver is to have a new weekly
illustrated paper, devoted to current
events, society, music and drama, literature and humor. The printing plant
of the defunct Guardian has been purchased by John P. McConnell and R. S.
I Ford, his brother-in-law, who recently
arrived from the east.
Mr. McConnell, who is a writer of
considerable repute, will edit the new
paper, while Mr. Ford will manage the
business end.
The new publication will be known as
the British Columbia Saturday Sunset,
and the first issue is expected to make
its appearance about June 16.
Sharpies Tubular Cream Separator.
A little care about what you buy to
help make dairying easy and profitable
will not be wasted.
Just as there is no other separator as
good as the Tubular, so there is no
Cooley Can or dilution process creamer
equal to the poorest separator. The
separator and the Cooley Can, or process creamers, are entirely different
and should never lie confused.
A Tubular Separator gets all the cream
-gets it immediately after milking -
siives bundling, ice and storage gets
the skimmed milk sweet, warm and
wholesome for the calves and pigs-
saves washing a lot of pans and cans.
On the other band, a Cooley Can, or a
process creamer, wastes one-fourth the
cream (a loss to you of one-fourth the
profit)-requires numerous cans, storage room, and ice-cools and injures the
skimmed milk until it is almost value-
less-requires the washing of numerous
cans-in fact, proves itself practically
no better than pans. It is well toavoid
cans and process creamers if you are
looking for least labor and biggest profits.
Be sure and see a Sharpies Tubular
Cream Separator now on exhibition at
the Stage Office, Nicola.
Address all communications to Dr. C.
W. Cross, agent, Ashcroft, B. C.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
(f
With the completion of the railway to Nicola many changes for
the better have cropped up, and although there is no boom or e__C_t_-
incut on everything looks as if there
will he a prosperous year for the
valley. The coal mines arc di
good and substantial work, and in
a very short time there will be nu- j ||P>| (ID
mcrous other industries started up,
as a result of the working of the
mines. At Coal Gully all the coal
that can be produced is taken up as
fast as it can be taken out, and as
soon as conditions are sufficiently
advanced the force will be increased and several hundred tons a day-
taken out. At the Diamond Vale
a large staff of men have been engaged installing machinery,erecting
houses and sinking the shaft to the
coal scams on the property. This
company has also very favorable
prospects of being a producer of
coal in a few months' time. With
this work going on that part of the
valley is quite busy, and the re- j
suits are extended to other parts.!
The townsite of Merritt will be
placed on the market in tlie course
of the next few weeks, and with
the business places already there,
others are only awaiting to secure
suitable lots to build on. Ik-fore
the coming fall Merritt will be a
busy town.

Nicola lake will shortly become
one of the choice summer resorts of
British Columbia. A large and
up-to-date hotel will be built at
Quilchena, which is an ideal spot.
A new hotel for the town of Nicola
is also talked of, and probably the
town will come in for a share of
the trade of tourists, as during the
past year people kept away on account of the poor hotel accommodation. Now that the railway is
here many people from the coast
and other points will take ndvant-
age of the transportatioi facilities
and spend the week end in Nicola
valley.
During the past week the provincial constable knocked out two
fish traps constructed in the Nicola
river. Indians are credited with
being the guilty parties. There is
a law against the placing of traps
in any stream to capture fish and
it should be rigidly enforced. Last
year several traps were t.iken out
.-ind the fishery department has alio
removed other obstructions so as to
permit salmon to tome up the river
to spawn. Any person who knows
of a trap in the river should remove it.

just the same there is going to lie a
large chunk of unadulterated excitement ribbed up in Nicola on the
24th of May���fully as much, in
fact, as any of the above-mentioned
"spectaculars" could induce in a
large city. The program of gymkhana events and sports of various
kinds is very elaborate, to say nothing of the horse races, which will
be a truly hair-crimping feature.
