With an assured train service early
in January there will undoubtedly be
numerous er.qu ries as to prospects in
the Nicola Valley and undoubtedly many
of these inquiries will be made personally.   It is early ye, to say  how many
antres of population there will be in
the district, apart from the population
which will centre around ihe coal mines.
While each part of the valley has certain advantages, ihese do not outweigh
the fact that the tendency lor the majority of people will be to go where
there is likely to by the largest population and where land is not held al too
high a price. In fact at this stage of
the development of the Nicola Valley,
one of the greatest mistakes that could
be made would be the enhancing of
prices to i.n abnormal extent. To do so
is to already discount the future pro-
glWi of the Valley by quite a few
years. A child must crawl before it
can walk, and townsites are in a great
degree the same as children. It is not
to local inhabitants that sales of land
must be looked to, but to outsiders, and

were children. The letter was addressed
