THE NICOLA
PUBLISHED AT MERRITT. B. C.
Vol. 4, No. 26.
THURSDAY, JULY 2, 1908.
$2 a Year.
TO SHORTEN ROUTE
NEW BRIDGE WILL BE BUILT OVER
NIOOLA RIVER.
D. G. Sutherland, Road Superintendent,
Visits the District This Week ���
Extensive    Improvements
Will Be Carried Out.
Road Superintendent Sutherland
was in Merritt this week and left
Wednesday morning for the Tulameen section. He spent a few days
with a representative of the railway
commission looking over the road
near Coutlee, adjacent to the railway track, and also at Canford,
where the road is narrowed by
fences being built on the right-of-
way. Both places will be attended to.
The bridge gang will be in Merritt this week and proceed to construct a bridge across the Nicola
river on a line with Voght street,
which will give Nicola closer communication with Merritt and the
mines. A right-of-way has been
secured from J. C. Conklin through
his property.
Mr. Sutherland will go thoroughly over the roads and will have his
gangs make the repairs wherever
they are necessary.
Democratic Convention.
Political developments at Denver,
where the Democrats are to meet in
National convention July 7th, will have
a large share in the week's news. Delegates and others who expect to attend
will begin to leave from the east and
from the west the latter part of the
week. The Tammany delegation from
New York, nnmbering over 600, is planning to leave New York on Friday in
special trains.
Secretary Taft severed his connection
with President Roosevelt's cabinet on
Wednesday, when the portfolio of secretary of war will be assumed by Gen.
Luke E. Wright, of Tennessee.
Handbook of B. 0.
Such publications as the "Handbook
of British Columbia," recently published
by the bureau of provincial information,
do much to dispel the idea that no authoritative information of the resources
of the province is available. This handbook of 63 pages, neatly printed and
bound in pamphlet form, is not only an
epitome of the possibilities of the province, but is also a guide for the intending settler or others.
Ohuroh Services.
Presbyterian Church:
C. K. Mathewson will preach Sunday
next in Merritt at 8 p. m. and Middlesboro at 7 p. m.
Methodist Church:
On Sunday next services at Nicola, 11
a. m. and 7.80 p. m., and Lower Nicola at 3 p. m��� by Rev. Fakeley; Lower Nicola, 7.30 p. m.
Penny Postage.
Penny postage between United States
and Great Britain will become effective
on October 1st. The rate will be the
same as between Great Britain and
her colonies���one penny, or two cents,
per ounce.
Wedding Bells.
A happy event took place on Monday
evening, when the nuptials of Miss Josie
A. McKitrick, one of Lower Nicola's
most popular young ladies, and John H.
Adams, of the B. C. Amalgamated company, were celebrated.
The wedding was a quiet one, only a
few relatives and close friends of the
contracting parties being present. The
ceremony was performed at the home
of the bride's sister, Mrs. Chas. E. Collett, at 7:30 sharp by the Ven. Archdeacon Small, after which a dainty wedding supper was partaken of, followed
by a few hours of social enjoyment.
Mr. and Mrs. Adams have taken up
their residence in Merritt, and their
many friends will join The Herald in
wishing them a long and prosperous
matrimonial career.
ITEMS OF INTEREST
THE HODOINS CHARGES TO BE DB
BATED JULY 7.
Mr. and Mrs. F. A. Howse left this
week for the coast.
G. B. Armstrong was at Ashcroft on
business this week-.
Rev. C. K. Mathewson visited in the
camp today from Nicola.
J. Lawson, of Middlesboro colleries,
was at Nicola on Wednesday on a business trip.
Mrs. Jas. Chapman, of Lower Nicola,
spent several days last week visiting
with friends in Merritt.
Fred. Gosby, who is connected

colleries, has returned from Vancouver.
J. J. Plommer, of Vancouver, secretary of the Nicola Valley Coal and Coke
company, was at Middlesboro this
week. ,
Dr. Curtin, Carrol Charlton and J. B.
Haddad, of Nicola, left on Monday evening by special stage for Princeton to
take in the Dominion day 'sports.
Alex. McPhaul, of Otter valley, is
having a portion of his ranch surveyed
into a townsite. According to the railway survey, a station will be put at his
place.
George Murk, of Penticton, has spent
the past week in Nicola and is considering building a large business block on
the corner of Voght street and Quil-
chnna avenue.
The Dominion house will prorogue
in a very short time and, it is stated,
will dissolve and the general elections
will be held in September or probably
at an earlier date. There is every indication of a short campaign.
The syndicate which has secured an
option on the ranches of J. N. Moore
and Joseph Collett at the head of Nicola lake, and James Aird at Rockford,
we learn have also secured Mrs. Palmer's ranch. With these fine ranches
the syndicate has seoured the choicest
in the valley for its purpose of cutting
up into small farms.
It is reported that Duncan Ross, the
member for Yale-Cariboo, is on his way
west from Ottawa to meet the Hon.W.
J. Bowser, who is making a trip through
this district. Mr. Ross made some
caustic remarks about Hon. Mr. Bowser, re Japanese question, who refuted
same and stated that he would meet
Ross in his own district on the platform. There will be a hot time when
they meet.
I
Majority and Minority Reports Handed
to Commons.���Dr. Ker 111 in Vancouver Hospital.���Thu June
Westward Ho.
The majority and minority reports respecting the inquiry into the Hodgins
charges were presented to the Commons
Friday. The majority report finds that
as provision is made in the Act for the
reference of any dispute over classification to arbitration, it would be useless
for the committee to continue the inquiry on that point. The report, after
reviewing the evidence, finds that Major
Hodgins not only failed to prove the
charges published in the Victoria Colonist, but has specifically withdrawn the
same and unqualifiedly exonerated the
commissioners and their engineers from \
any improper conduct, or of collusion
with the contractors.
The minority report of Messrs. Berker
and Lennox finds that the papers produced by the commissioners show many
charges of over-classification, of excessive allowances and undue payments by
the commission to contractors, of a like
description to those charged by Major
Hodgins. These were formally made by
the Grand Trunk Pacific. They involve
enormous over-payments out of the public funds. The report goes on to state
that the charges cover and include those
made by Major Hodgins and are within
the scope of the inquiry. Therefore,
the committee should proceed with the
investigation till completed. The question will be debated on July 7th.
Lafferty Leaves.
G. A. Lafferty, accountant in the Bank
of Montreal at Nicola, left on this morning's train for Rossland, where he will
occupy a similar position in the bank at
that place.
Last evening a number of his many
friends gathered at Nicola and gave him
a farewell party, which would have been
much larger attended had it been known
of his departure.
Mr. Lafferty will be greatly missed in
the valley, as he was popular in all
quarters, and his enthusiasm in the furthering of outdoor sport was responsible
for the success of the many celebrations held at Nicola and Quiichena. He
leaves Nicola valley after a three years'
residence with the good will of a host of
friends and acquaintances, who wish
him success and luck.
MINISTERS' VISIT
MEMBERS OP PROVINCIAL CABINET
ON A TOUR.
M. P. Stewart visited in the coal metropolis today.
Wm. Munroe, of Nicola, was visiting
in Merritt today.
Westward  Hoi
Though late from the presses the June
issue of Westward Ho with its splendid
stories and illnstrations is by far the
best number yet turned out. Cy War-
man has a capital story The Heathen
and Roy Horniman an equally well
known magazine writer, contributes an
amusing phantasy of the future entitled
No Ball. Miss Irene MacColl, a young
British Columbian writer who is .rapidly
making a name for her fiction, has a
sweet, though sad, story in As She Sowed. The Reef Landell's Woe by N.
Tonrneur, The Brothers by Reuben
Rambler are two good pieces of fiction.
F. Burnett has an illustrated article on
The Ruined Cities of Ceylon. Indian
Legendry, The Log of Minsola, Photographic Notes, etc., are all of local interest, and the series of sketches on the
various districts of the province under
the heading of Potential Canada are
truly excellent. Next month Westward
Ho will commence its third volume and
announce as a special feature a sketch
of Sir Wilfred Laurier by the editor in
his department Men I Have Met.
Dr. Ker 111.
Many friends of Dr. Harold Ker will
regret to learn that he is-at present confined in the General hospital. The doctor, who has charge of the medical and
hospital services of the Macdonnel-
Gzowski camps at Field, met with an
accident which caused septic poisoning
of one of his fingers. No serious results
are anticipated and Dr. Ker expects to
return to Field in the course of a fortnight. John Mercer, of theMacdonnel-
Gzowski staff at Field, who came down
with Dr. Ker, was himself taken ill on
the way here and is also confined to the
hospital. Both patients are well known
in Vancouver and their many friends
will wish them a speedy recovery.���
Saturday Sunset,
S. Tingley, of Ashcroft, was a visitor
to the valley this week.
Mrs. and Miss Wells, of Kamloops,
returned home from a trip to Princeton
on Saturday last.
The C. P. R. is taking out two carloads each train from 1;he Middlesboro
colleries for its own use.
Mesdames Flannigan and McMillan
and children were visiting at Lower
Nicola a couple of days this week.
Mrs. B. P. Little returned on Monday
evening from Vancouver, and was accompanied by her son from Skokane.
Mr. Little returned on Wednesday's
train.
J. Burnet and wife, of Nicola, who
have been conducting the Bungalow
boarding house, leave in a few days for
Ashcroft, where they have taken over
a restaurant.
Mr. and Mrs. J. R. A. Richards and
H. Goodisson left this Week for Victoria
where they will remain several weeks
before going to Salmon Arm, where Mr.
Richards is opening a tourist hotel.
The C. P. R. survey party is going
along at a good rate and have secured a
good grade up the Coldwater to Otter
valley. They have moved camp from
McKay's ranch and will continue on towards Summerland.
Messrs. Poppin and McFarlane, who
were prospecting in the Aspen Grove
camp about three years ago, have had
their labors rewarded by making a gold
strike in Dead valley, Nevada, having
sold their property for $75,000.
B. Bewley, who has been connected
with the Diamond Vale company for
some time, with Mrs. Bewley, took
charge of the Coutlee hotel at Coutlee
on Tuesday. Mr. Bewley is an experienced hotel man and guests at this well
known hostelry will recejve every
attention.
A Siwash known as Seymour Edwards,
wanted in the Okanagan for horsestealing, was taken into custody by
Constable Clark on Saturday at Hamilton mountain, where he was employed
on the Douglas Lake company's roundup. Mr. Clark left Nicola with the accused on Tuesday's train, to hand him
over to Chief Simmons of the provincial force at Vernon.
Premier McBride and Dr. Young Will
Speak at Merritt, and Hon. W. J.
Bowser and F. J. Fulton at
Nioola on Monday.
Nicola Valley will be visited on
Monday by Premier McBride, Attorney-General Bowser, Chief Commissioner Fulton and Provincial
Secretary Young, who are making
a tour along the line of railway.
Owing to the short time they will
be in the valley, it is likelv that.
Premier McBride and Dr. Young
will speak at Merritt on Monday
evening and Hon. W. J. Bowser
and F. J. Fulton at Nicola, all leaving by next morning's train for
Ashcroft.
Members of the Nicola Valley
Conservative association will meet
the party at Coutlee, and with the
Premier and Dr. Young will visit
the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke
company and the Diamond Vale
company properties, the attorney-
general and chief commissioner going on to Nicola, and will return,
next morning and go over the properties. Premier McBride and Dr.
Young will leave Merritt Tuesday
morning for Nicola, taking the train
from that point.
School Examination.
The first annual examination at the
Merritt public school was held on Friday, June 26th.
The schoolroom was full, the people
present taking great interest in the
work of the children. At the concert
following the chair was ably taken by
Wm. Voght, and an entertaining program of songs, recitations, etc., gone
through.
At the close addresses were given by
Dell King, Mrs. Marshall and the chairman, complimenting the schoolmistress
on the progress made and the conduct
of the children.
There are .now twenty-six scholars or*
the register, and the attendance has
been remarkably regular.
Fruit and candy were bought for the
children by Messrs. Voght and Eastwood.

Tuesday, June 16th, 1908, to Mr. and
Mrs. J. K. Mecredy, of Middlesboro,
a daughter.
Mrs. H. H. Price and children- are
visiting at Coutlee, from Aspeu Grove*,
for a few days. THE   NICOLA   HERALD
THE NICOLA HERALD

Satweription, in Advanae. $2 a Year
Merritt, B.C., July 2, 1908.
As will be seen elsewhere in this
issue, Premier McBride and staff
are slated for a visit to the Nicola
velley next week. They will be
sure of a hearty reception, not only
on the part of their own party followers, but also from a great many
who are of the Liberal persuasion,
yet are level-headed enough to recognize the fact that the McBride
administration, with its sane, progressive policy, is the only logical
one for the province at this time.
Although this riding returned an
opposition member at the last election, the district has not been in
the least slighted in the way of appropriations for public improvements. Sensible Grits realize that
we have received our full share of
appropriations, and many are anxious to clear their consciences at
the coming general elections.
Although somewhat at "outs''
with the Grand Trunk Pacific, John
Houston, in the Prince Rupert Empire, gives credit where credit is due
.and declares there is nothing in the
reports that the G. T. P. purchases
supplies in the United States to be
used in connection with the construction of their railways in British
Columbia. The Empire editor
made a tour through the immense
warehouse of Foley.Welsh & Stewart, the contractors, in which they
have hundreds of tons of supplies,
and he says nearly all the packages,
boxes and bundles bear the "Made
in Canada'' label. A limited quantity of necessary food-stuffs imported from California and th��_ Orient, and the drill steel comes from
England ; but eighty-gve per cent,
of all supplies will be of Canadian
manufacture.
B. E. Walker, president of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce, says
the crop outlook in the west, from
the reports received by the bank, is
good. The natural result of a good
crop, he intimates, will be that money will be easier, municipalities
will find themselves able to sell
their bonds, and some of them will
take advantage of this perhaps to
plunge into improvements on the
old large scale. This will not be
justified, he says, for the country
needs caution as well as crop.
The long drawn out negotiations
between the two parties in the Commons over the elections bill, are now
believed to have reached that stage
where it is safe to expect that the
business of parliament will be rapidly wound up and that prorogation
may be looked for not later than
July 18. There have been mutual
concessions, the terms of which will
shortly be made public and which,
it is expected, will be accepted by
the general public as "peace with
honor."
An order-in-council has been passed at Ottawa whereby a Hindu desiring admittance into Canada must
possess $200 in cash. It is expected
this will put an effective stop to the
influx of these people.
Wednesday   last   was   Canada's
birthday.    She  was 41 years old,
