ON WATER RIGHTS
IRRIGATION convention success
FUL SESSION.
Number of Officers   Appointed rrom
This   Province -Arrangements
Hade For  Irrigation Ex
pert to Visit B. 0.
The irrigation conference held at Calgary last week completed the labors of
the first session.
Resolutions were passed on many important subjects amongst which might
be mentioned: forestry as affecting irrigation, asking the B. C. and Ottawa
governments to reserve forests on all
watersheds; the duty of water, urging
upon the governments the necessity for
laws fixing the duty of water and the
administration thereof in B. C.; urging
upon the government the necessity for
a careful revision of the existing records and the cancellation of all records
not in good standing; the extension of
surveys in connection with irrigation.
A resolution urging upon the government of the three western provinces
the necessity for experimental work
under artificial watering and the dissemination of useful information. A
resolution concerning the irrigation law
in Alberta and Saskatchewan and one
concerning the diversion of water from
run of area by irrigation companies.
It was also resolved that it would be
wise to have the irrigation laws of the
provinces uniform. Several other resolutions were passed, amongst them one
to make the convention a permanent
organization, this was done during the
meeting.
OfficerB elected for the ensuing year
are as follows: Hon. President, Lieut-
Governor James Dunsmuir of British
Columbia; president, Hon. F. J. Pulton,
chief commissioner of lands and works,
British Columbia; first vice-president,
J. S. Dennis, C. E., Calgary; second
vice-president, W. C. Ricardo; b.itish
Columbia; secretary-treasurer, W. K.
McCaw, Calgary; organization committee, J. T. Hall, Medicine Hat; Wm.
Pearce, Calgary; A. Stirling, British
Columbia; C. W. Patterson, Calgary;
W. Humphrey and J. Woodford, Southern Alberta.
There was a close contest for the
next meeting between Kamloops and
Vernon, the latter winning by a narrow
margin,
A Victoria despatch says, Prof. Carpenter of Colorado, one of the leading
authorities on irrigation in the United
States has been engaged to make a
thorough report on the subject in British Columbia. Hon. Mr. Fulton made
arrangements with him at Calgary,
where both attended the convention on
irrigation. Prof. Carpenter will be
here in August and on his report new
legislation will be depending.
CATTLE SHIPMENTS.
The advantages of Nicola as t shipping point for cattle were very evident
in the course of the past few days.
Seven car loads of prime cattle shipped
by Joseph Collett on Tuesday arrived in
Vancouver in excellent condition the
same evening. Three car loads of cattle
were also shipped by J. Guichon of
Quilchena yesterday morning.
The advantages of this rapid transit
cannot be over estimated and placeB
Nicola on an equal footing with other
shipping points, so far as regards means
of transit. There is some talk of installing a weigh scale near the station
which will prove a boon to the ranchers
and shippers in the district.
BURIED TREASURE
Church Services.
Methodist Church services on Sundsy
are as follows: 10:30 a.m., Dot; 7 p.
m., Middlesboro' Colleries; 7:30 Lower
Nicola.
Church of England services will be
conducted next Sunday as follows:
Morning service at Stump lake; after-
noot at Quilchena 2:30; evening service
at Nicola 7:30.
Rev. D. K. Allan will preach in the
Presbyterian Church next Sunday morning at 11 a.m., Lower Nicola, at 3 p.m.;
Diamond Vale at 7 p.m. There will be
no evening service in the Presbyterian
Church.
Accident at Diamond Vale,
A workman employed at the Diamond
Vale mine received a bad accident on
Thursday. While working at the new
shaft a beam overhead slipped from its
place and struck him on the shoulder
knockng him down the shaft a distance of
15 feet. He was picked up unconscious
and the doctor hurried to the mine and
attended to the injured man. Besides
bruises on the body he received some
nasty cuts on the head when falling in
the shaft. With careful attention he
will be around again shortly.

AWAITING  RAILROAD.
High School Scholars.
Matilda W. Marquart daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Peter Marquart and Douglas A. Wright son of Rev. T. H. and
Mrs. Wright, this week received their
high school diplomas. Douglas Wright
is only eleven years of age and is the
youngest scholar in the province to pass
the high school examination. Another
scholar from Nicola Valley attending
St. Ann's Convent at Kamloops, Alice
L. Guichon, was also successful in passing the examination.
Fastest Hall Passage.
The Canadian Pacific Railway Company's R. M. S. impress of Britain landed her mails at Rimouski at noon last
Thursday, thereby completing the fastest mail passage not only on the Canadian route but between European and
American mail ports.
The steamer left Liverpool at 5 p. m.
on the 12th of July, which is equal to a
departure from Moville, the northern
Irish mail port, at 2 p. m. on Saturday,
12th, and landing her mails at Rimouski
at noon on the 18th, makes her mail
time five days three hours, after making the necessary allowance for difference in time.
The best time ever made on the New
York route was five days eight hours
by the Lucania from Queenstown to
New York.
Hon. W. J. Bowser.
W. J. Bowser, senior member for
Vancouver, was sworn in as attorney-
general in the McBride cabinet Tuesday
evening. Hon. F. *J. Fulton will be
chief commissioner of lands and works.
The by-election at which Mr. Bowser
will seek return will occur next week.
It is unlikely that there will be any
opposition to Mr. Bowser.
Bruce ln Sunset Tells of the Resources
of the Nicola District.-Oamps ln
the Vicinity Busy Witb
Development.
Any man who keeps his ear to the
ground these days can hear it coming-
the mining boom���a deep, sonorous, resounding boom that will echo to the four
corners of the continent-a boom whose
lisp will be ore and whose grown up
shout will be wealth. Not the litho-
graphed-stock-certificate mining boom
of the early '90's or the later Cobalt
craze, but the digging, drilling, blasting,
hoisting, shipping and smelting kind of
mining boom. Keep your eye on the
Nicola and Similta meen. Those valleys
will be the centru of attraction. All
they need, have needed, is the completion of the C. P. R. or G. N. R., both
of which are built part way in. The C.
P. R. is now at Nicola on the north,
V. V. & E. (G.N.R. is at Keremeos) on
the south. It laid the last rail and ran
the first train in on Dominion day. If
the management lives up to its promises and verifies his excuses, it will push
north now with all haste. The gap
is only a little over 100 miles long, but
it is proving to be the richest hundred
miles of territory in British Columbia.
Already the C. P. R. has an enormous
tonnage in sight at the Nicola c_l
mines. The G. N. R. has tapped one
of the finest fruit, cattle and agricultural districts in the province at the
south end. Each road is at the edge
of the rich mineralized zone, on the
north the Aspen Grove camp, south of
that the Bear Creak, Graveyard Creek,
Tulameen and Similkameen camps,
Voight's camp, Copper Mountain camp;
sonth of that again, Hedley, probably
the largest gold bearing, outside of the
rand in the world; Aspen Grove for
copper; Bear Creek, gold, copper and
platinum mining; all the others gold,
copper, silver, coal and iron.
Then the country: Wide valleys, dry
sunshine; ideal climate, fruit, vegetables, grain, cattle, a land flowing with
plenty, one of the most beautiful to
look upon and the most delighful to live
in all the province.
Today they are prospecting, exploring, developing, developing - waiting
for the railway and then your big, solid
Bonnding boom. It is coming - just
keep your eye on Nicola and the Similkameen.
John Moreland, of New Westminster,
is rusticating in the valley for a couple
of weeks.
Juit Pure OotL
Cumberland News: There were 600
pounds of Nicola valley coal in the building next to Fraser's barber shop this
week. Some city officials thought the
coal had a cent a pound ring to it, but
on examination it was proven to contain
neither silver nor sulphur. -Cumberland
News.
OOAL AT GRANITE.
Word received from Granite Creek
states that a fine seam of bituminous
coal nine feet in width has been opened
up on the North Fork, a few miles
from Granite creek.
Wm. Corkle ia the holder of the coal
land and is at present engaged in prospecting and opening up the seams.
LOOAL NBWS.
M. L. Grimmett returned to Nicola
Wednesday evening.
W. E. Southard, of Regina, was looking over the valley this week.
Mrs. George Murray has been quite
ill the past week is now convalescent.
The regular meeting of Court Nicola,
A. O, F., will be held on Friday evening.
Several men were in Nicola the past
week with the object in view of investing in farming lands.
W. A. Jackson left for Vanconver on
Thursday's train, where he will be employed for some time.
A. S. Bennett, who has been a member of The Nicola Herald staff, left for
Vancouver this week.
Wm. Potter will shortly move into
the fine new cottage he recently purchased on 2nd street.
George Stoke, formerly freight checker at Ashcroft, has been transferred to
Nicola as assistant to station agent Potter.
G. M. Curtis, representing the Okanagan Nursery Co. of Penticton, ii in
Nicola this week, accompanied by Mrs.
Curtis.
H. E. Beasley, superintendent of the
Pacific division of the C. P. R. has resigned and Mr, Arundel from the east has
been appointed.
Mary the little daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. F. W. Jackson of Quilchena was
very ill this week but her condition is
now much improved.
TENDERS.
Tenders will be received by the undersigned up till Monday, July 29th, for
the painting and repairs to the Nicola
School House. Information concerning
work can be obtained from the secretary, G. H. Tutill.
W. H. Armstrong, vice-president and
manager and J. J. Plommer, secretary
of the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Co.,
were up from Vancouver this week and
spent a few days at Middlesboro' Colleries.
Arthur Stevenson, government road
superintendent for this district, will resign from that position as soon as he
completes certain large works he is now
engaged on. Mr. Stevenson is the senior in the civil service and is a capable
and efficient official and it will be with
regret that his many friends will learn
of his retirement.
Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Woodward held
a very enjoyable party at their home at
Middlesboro' Colleries on Tuesday evening in honor of Miss Jennie Woodward's
birthday.
A. Irwin, indian agent, of Kamloops,
paid Nicola a visit this week. We are
pleased to report that Mr. Irwin is almost entirely recovered from his recent
severe illness.
RIGHT OF APPEAL
IS STILL IN BRITISH NORTH AMERICA MEASURE.
Both sides Claiming Victory Ln Subsidy  Settlement   Controversy.-
The BUI Now Comet Baok
to the Commons,
A London despatch says: Lord Elgin
and Sir Francis Hopgood, permanent
Secretary of the Colonial Office, were
closely questioned Saturday night on behalf of British Columbia in respect to
the exact bearing of the amendment* to
the British North America Bill, which
Lord Elgin has passed in the House of
Lords.
It seems that upon Winston Churchill's speech announcing the excision of
the words "final and unalterable," aa
made by the Dominion Government, as
applied to the subsidies settlement, Sir
Wilfrid Laurier brought strong personal pressure to reinsert the words, in
order to prevent the question being kept
alive in Canadian politics.
Thereupon, as a compromise, the preamble and schedule were inserted to
make clear the intention of the Canadian parliament to make settlement "final and unalterable."
The Colonial Office, however, assures
British Columbia that despite the
amendments, the settlement is not "final and unalterable."
The way remains open for future negotiations with Ottawa.
Apparently both sides claim a victory.
The bill now comes back to the House
of commons for the acceptance or rejection of the amendment of the House
of Lords.
Japanese Immigration.
The Department of Trade and Commerce has been notified by the Immi-
tion office at Victoria that during the
month of June 1018 Japanese arrived at
Victoria. Of these 912 were males and
106 females. 791 remained in
Canada and 227 continued their journey
to various United States points. The
Japanese immigration movement is abnormally I _.vy at present
The Nicola baseball team is gradually
getting into shape, and manager Meyer
looks for a successful time the remainder of the serson. Challenges will be
scattered shortly.
Teachers' Ajsoclatlon.
The next session of the Dominion
Teachers' Association will be held in
Victoria. It will probably take place
in 1909. Alexander Robinson, superintendent of education, has been elected
president and J, D. Buchanan, first assistant at the Normal school, Vancouver, secretary.
The local station is a day office and
not a night office, as many seem to
think, and the agent would be saved
considerable annoyance if the general
public appreciate this fact and transact
their business during the regular business hours.
The Herald is requested to state that
as there is no mail clerk on the Nicola-
Spences Bridge line, the public are requested to discontinue the growing practice of giving in their letters on the
train. The train crew is under no obligation to accept the letters, and it would
be much safer, if for no other reason,
to use the postoffice for depositing all
mail matter.
Sworn In.
Chief Justice Hunter was sworn in
at Victoria this week to administrate
during the absence of Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir from the province. The
latter will be away owing to the illness
of Mrs. Dunsmuir.
Visit of Tyees.
President L. W. Hill, of the Great
Northern, and Chief Engineer Hoag-
land went to Keremeos by special train
this week and thence took their automobile and paid a visit to Hedley and
Princeton.
Looks Black For "All Red."
It is understood on good authority
that the imperial government has decided against the proposal for an "All Red"
transportation line to encircle the globe
on the ground that the expense would
be too heavy. THE   NICOLA HERALD

EDITORIAL NOTES.
A special despatch to the Vernon
News last Thursday reports that
an orderin-council has been passed prohibiting the shooting of
prairie chicken, willow and blue
grouse and pheasants for three
years.    	
If you are going to investigate
a loca Ion, says an exchange,
wouldn't you first step be to send
for copies of the local papers and
study their advertisements? In no
other could you put your finger so
quickly on the pulse of trade. You
can tell much more easily than by
walking through the streets whether it was a live town or a dead one,
and just what forms of business
were most active.
And if you judge another town
in this way���how about your own.

Any person will listen to you on
any subject except politics and religion.   If you differ with them on
these questions you are up against
it.   Perhaps you feel the same way
when approached, but you should
not.   The people who have studied
the least are the ones who are most
bigoted.   You never learned anything from the person who agrees
with you or knows only the same
things you know; he simply reflects back to you that which you
already know.    But  from  those
who differ with us we can learn-
even  when  they  are wrong we
learn  new  reasons  why we are
right.   Anyone who is afraid to
listen to or read something that
opposes what  they  believe is a
bigot and never learns anything.���
