THE NICOLA HERALD
Vol. 3, No. 45.
NICOLA, B. C��� FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1907.
$2 a Year.
AT MIDDLESBORO'
NEW BEAM BELOW RAT BOLE TO
BE OPENED.
Shipment of Five Hundred Tons Before H_d of Tear.- Bunkers at
No. Two Seam are About
Completed.
Mining operations at Middles"
boro' Colleries are making rapid
headway: at present 120 tons a day
being shipped of the highest quality of coal. This is being taken
from the Jewel and Rat Hole seams,
there being a large quantity of coal
from both seams ready for immediate shipment. Before the end of
the year the management confidently expect to be shipping over 500
tons a day, an expectation which
to anyone familiar with the extensive development operations which
are being carried on, will seem a
low and conservative estimate.
Further development has shown
other seams of coal and one of easy
access near the Rat Hole seam is
being opened up and by the beginning of the year will be into good
shipping coal.
The bunkers to be used for the
coal from the No. 2 seam are about
completed and are now in use. The
coal from this seam is of the highest quality.
The scene at Middlesboro' is a
busy one, and the many new buildings in course of erection go to
show that there will be a good sized settlement there in the near
future. Houses and cottages for
the employees are already erected
and more of these are at present
under construction. The large
new boarding house is now almost
completed and other buildings for
the use of the workmen are being
erected. A large warehouse along
side the railroad track has just
been completed and will be used
for storage purposes.
The difference between Middlesboro' twelve months ago and today
would hardly be credited and the
company are to be congratulated
on the far-sighted and business like
manner in which they have gone
about the development of this property and the securing of first class
men to manage the affair.
The outlook for the mines is
good, and what the shipment maybe twelve months from now would
be hard to say, but everything
points to the tonnage being a heavy
one and of a high class quality of
(oal.
To Probe Further.
An order in council will be issued at
Ottawa extending Mackenzie King's
commission so as to permit of extension
of his enquiry into the whole subject of
Japanese immigration into Canada.
PEAOOOE OROUP.
The contract on the Peacock
group of mineral claims on Clapperton creek, owned by Thomas
Hunter, was finished last week.
The drift from the bottom of the
shaft was continued for a further
distance of twenty feet and indications are that with a little more
work will open up a fine body of
ore. The result is considered very
satisfactory by the owner and he
contemplates letting a further contract. With further work it would
go far towards proving upon a
property which has every indications of being a valuable proposition.

Church of England Parishes.
A meeting of the members of the
Church of England wac held on Sunday
afternoon. It was decided to make two
parishes of the district, Nicola and Merritt, the dividing line being that dividing townseips 91 from 93. The officers
for the Nicola parish are: Vicar's warden and treasurer, A. W. Strickland;
people's warden and secretary, H. H.
Matthews; sidemen, E. Hann, J. P.
Meyer, W. Neal, W. Potter, R. H.
Winny and R. S. Smith.
A meeting of the Merritt parish will

service at Merritt.
Evangelistic Services.
Asa Gordon, K. C, and Mrs. Gordon,
Evangelists from Ottawa, will commence
a series of Union Evangelistic services
in the Lower Nicola Church on Friday,
Nov. 8th.
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.
Death of W. B. Ladner Well Known

Dr. Irving ln Charge.
The appeal against the decision of the
Kamloops licence commissioners came
up before Judge Spinks at Kamloops
yesterday. The appeal was brought by
Joseph R. A. Richards on account of
licenses being granted to George Hygh
of Hotel Merritt and Wm. Mclntyre of
the Coldwater hotel at Mertitt. Richards had applied for a second licence
in the licence radius, which was not
granted.
At the meeting of the licensing board
on the 11th October, attention was
drawn to the defective petitions and
three applicants and solicitors agreed
to let petititions to go in as they were
the commissioners accepting same. The
appeal was brought up on the petitions
being defective, the judge granting
same. The licences for the two hotels
at Merritt are therefore cancelled and
the whole proceedings of application
will have to be gone over again and
will come up again at a meeting on 27th
November.

Death ot a Pioneer,
The death is announced of one of the
best known of British Columbia pioneers, W. H. Ladner who passed away
this week at his home at Ladners. The
deceased had reached the ripe old age
of 82 and had lived in British Columbia
nearly all his life. The deceased for a
number of years engaged in mining and
packing in the Cariboo district and also
spent some time in Nicola Valley. He
later on settled near the mouth of the
Fraser river and acquired a large estate. He leaves a widow and two
daughters to mourn his loss.
been in the valley for the past two
weeks. He reports the completion
of the contract for a fifty foot extension to the tunnel which is being run in to tap the seam and has
let another contract for fifty feet
more. W. S. Angstead is in charge
of the work which he will continue
all winter. A shaft above the tunnel on the surface showing has
been sunk about ten feet and Mr.
Bockmier states that they have a
five foot seam of good coal and
with the tunnel extended farther
the body will be tapped.

J. E. Bate of Aspen Grove left on
yesterdays Uain for Kamloops on a
business trip.
Mrs. Kirby, Mrs. Mickle and Miss
Lettice of Quilchena were visitors to
Nicola this week.
Miss C. Woodward returned to Lower
Nicola yesterday after a short visit in
Nicola with relatives.
Merritt.
The town of Merritt is going ahead
rapidly, every day new houses are commenced, and every available piece of
lumber from local mills is secured and
more buildings would be erected if lumber was more plentiful. Quite a number of lots have been disposed off to
both local and outside parties. The
bridge across the Coldwater river will
probably be built this winter to connect
with Middlesboro.
M. L. Grimmett, Geo. Hygh, Wm.
Mclntyre and J. R. A. Richards returned from Kamloops today after attending the licencing appeal.
E. Mace has his building under construction at Merritt and will open up
first class shaving parlors. Mr. Mace
has had twenty years experience and
guarantees satisfaction.
Provincial Sanitarium.
Within two weeks it is probable that
the Provincial Tuberculosis Sanitarium
at Tranquille will open for the reception of a limited number of patients.
At least such was the statement made
at the last meeting of the directorate
held in Victoria. The question of building a hospital for the treatment of consumptives in an advanced stage was
left in the hands of a committee to report upon. Dr. Irvine of Victoria, who
was formerly connected with the sanitarium at Gravenhurst, Ont., was chosen medical superintendent for the first
six months and Miss McLaren, formerly
of the Kamloops Hospital staff, was
chosen as matron. Allan Dodd was offered the position of assistant secreary
An experienced man who has already
been placed in charge of the farming
operations, reported it to be in a flourishing condition.
Bruce R. Warden, superintending engineer at Middlesboro' Colleries, and
Mrs. Warden are in Nicola today.

R, A Lambert ^Uncovers Face of Seam
Oood Quality of Coal.  Two Miles
From Nicola and ln
Oood Position.
The outcrops of coal directly
south of Nicola, and about two
miles distant led some time to quite
a large area in the vicinity being
staked for coal lands. Prospecting
work was done, but nothing really
promising was located until lately.
As is well known there are indications on Hamilton creek, and
some years ago drilling operations
were commenced with a view of
proving the property. Owing however to a wash on the creek work
was suspended and has never been
restarted. A prospecting trip over
this area led Wm. Munro to an entirely new showing, and this R. A.
Lambert has been working on dur
ing the past two weeks. About
half a mile from the Gilmore fence
towards Hamilton creek, and about
two miles from Nicola Mr. Munro
discovered an outcrop on the bill,
and Mr. Lambert has opened up
the face of this showing and has
uncovered a depth of seam of over

November Westward Bo.
Westward Ho! for November is now
at the bookstores. The magazine shows
a splendid growth and warrants the
publishers in believing that there is a
field in western Canada that will support a standard sized 10 cent magazine.
Nearlv one hundred pages of excellent
reading with many good illustrations
mark the growth of the publication.
That its value is appreciated for its excellent series of articles along the lines
of "Community Advertising" is shown
by the way Freeman Harding handles
his story of Kamloops under the title of
"Where Irrigation is King."
The coal is similar to that taken
out of Coal Gully at the commen-
ment of development operations
there, and there is evidently a large
body, which will be easily mined,
and close to transportation. Mr.
Lambert left for the coast this
week, and will meet the directors
of the Nicola Coal Co., who are
owners of the property and who it
is expected will at once start active
development on the uncovered
seam. The importance to Nicola
if further work proves the existence of a large body of coal, can
hardly be realized by even the
most optimistic, while the quality
of the coal judging from the
samples seen will make this property a strong competitor to other
coal properties.
