LOCAL NEWS.
Mining Trouble Settled
The miners at Middlesboro collieries are all back at work, an amicable adjustment of the recent dispute having been arranged between
the district representative of the
union, T. C. Brooke's, and the officials of the coal company. The
contract system is now in vogue, an
agreement having been signed for
thirteen months.
It is expected by both parties
that everything will now go along
smoothly.
Sad News Conflrttoed
The death was reported a few weeks
ago of David Nackew, a coal-miner,
well and popularly known in the camp
last summer. This news has since been
confirmed by an article in the South
Wales Echo of recent date. Mr. Nack-
rew was killed by an explosion at St.
Miguel colliery, Stone Cannon, Cal.,
last January.
For some time there was doubt as to
the authenticity of the reportof "Di's"
death, but now that the news has been
confirmed his numerous friends among
the local miners and others will regret
the circumstance very much. He was a
native of South Wales, and about 32
years of age.
There aae forty children on the roll
at the Merritt public school-22 boys
and 18 girls.
J
Spring plowing is reported to have
started in the Claresholm district, Alberta, on February 27.

of the Orange Lodge, which was to be
held next Monday, March 22nd, will

Geo. E. Hygh will enlarge and remodel his hotel this spring to keep in
pace with the growing camp and his
growing business.
Our Lower Nicola correspondent was
misinformed last week as regards Jos.
Collett subdividing his ranch there into
ten-acre blocks.
B. Bewley has retired from the management of the Coutlee hotel, but does
not intend to leave the valley. Thos.
Williams is now officiating at this popular hostelry.

next week on an enlargement to his
store, which will be used for the post-
office, business and general office. Mr.
Armstrong is also calling for tenders
for the erection of five cottages on his
property east of the store.
M. W. Saxon, who had a contract of
clearing land for John Collett, left this
week to take charge of Jas. Pooley's
flock of sheep at Nicola. His son,
Homer, who has been with him all winter, left for his home at Riverton, Wyoming.
Two Days of Sport Have Been Arranged for This Tear and a Bumper

first day a grand baU will be
held.
The celebration will be conducted under the management
of the Merritt Athletic club,
which consists of practicaliy all
the men of the town���those
not members should lose no
time in "catching up."
A largely attended meeting
was held in the Herald hall on
Tuesday evening to start the
ball rolling, G. B. Armstrong,
president of the club, was in
the chair.
Owing to so much pressure
upon his time, Geo. Thorn's

Dance committee: A. Jackson, E. S.
Thomas, A. S. Howes, J. Conklin, John
Adams.
These commitees have power to add
to their numbers, and the president of

member of each.
The following committee was appointed to draft out a constitution and set
of by-laws to govern the proceedings of
the club: H. Priest, F. Steele, U. S.
Thomas. This will be presented at the
next meeting.
The committees are already working
energetically, and are bound to make

various committees will be published
from week to week. Regular general
meetings will be held in the Herald hall
each Tuesday evening.
This (Friday) evening a special meeting was held for the puspose of organizing football, baseball and tennis clubs.

captain, W. Richardson; vice-captain,
J. Conklin.
Tennis: President, B. Browitt; vice-
president, H. W. Sutcliffe.
Train Crashes into Station
The express train from Boston, when
approaching Windsor street station, at
Montreal, on Wednesday was found to
be without driver or engineer. The
blowing out of a plug in the engine
hurled the engineer from the cab and
disabled the fireman, when the train
was a mile from the station. With no
one to guide it, the heavy train came
thundering into the city at terrific speed,
and jumping the track near the station,
drove itself straight into the building
through the heavy stone wall and into
the ladies' waiting room, where six
were killed and ten injured. The loss
is estimated at $100,000.

ST. PATRICK BALL
FIREMEN HONOR THE SHAMROCK
ON SEVENTEENTH
A Fine Crowd, a Fins Time and Fine
Financial   Results   Combine   to
Make   This    Affair    Most
Successful
One of the most successful balls
ever held in Nicola valley was that
which took place in Menzies' hall
on theeveningof St. Patrick's day,
under the auspices of the Merritt
Volunteer Fire Brigade.
Dancing started at nine o'clock,
and the excellent program which
had been arranged, kept a company
of about fifty couples in the best of
humor, and the light fantastic was
tripped with animation until 4 a.m.
Excellent music was furnished by a
local orchestra and the floor was in
"the pink of condition."
At midnight a collation of most
refreshing and palatable viands,
ptepared by the ladies of M��rritt,
was served.
The firemen of the coal metropolis are to be congratulated upon the
success of their dnnce, and it may
be said that not one of the large
number of visiiors present from
various parts of the valley were
disappointed with any detail of the
initial entertainment given by the
fire fighters.
As a result of the St. Patrick ball
the firemen will be enabled to increase their bank account by close
to oHe hundred "plunks."

shall not have the right to a voice
in the disposition of property thus
accumulated is to deny her that

Be a booster for the great Victoria day celebration. "Any chump

There is every indication that
the local collieries are forming
plans for much new work from now
ou. The coming summer will
doubtless see a line of construction
and deeelopment in progress that
will be gratifying to all who have
interests centred in this "vale of
coal."
Trouble has broken out in Methodist circles in Toronto, which
threatens to spread and divide Methodism into two seperate camps in
the Dominion. The superintendent of the church, called a minister in Toronto sharply to account,
for his interpretation of certain
scriptural passages, claiming the
minister was preaching atheism.
Prominent ministers and laymen
are lining up on each side for the
fray and it looks as if a war in the
church of some magnitude will'be
precipitated.

There is evev reason to believe
that Merritt wiu Jo herself proud
on the Victoria day celebration this
year.    The firs', annual celebration
of the c M camp w in held last year
and was   a   pronounced  success.
This year, with the much increased
population and advanced prospects
of the  camp,   the   demonstration
should certainly be a bumper one.
The two days of sport  as decided
upon for the great national holiday,
will prove an extra attraction, and
the committees in  charge of the
various   departments   are  already
working hard.    The whole valley
will co-operate with the coal metropolis and the affair is bound to be a
"big one."

There is no doubt that from time
to time the dower rights of a woman   have   seriously   complicated
transfers of  property  where  such
have existed.    It is also true  that
obstinate and unreasonable women
who  have exercised  their dower
rights unjustly have at times subjected their husbands and others to
hardship and loss.    But these, facts
fail to afford an excuse for the injustice and  outrage done woman
where the absence of dower  rights
has permitted the husband to sell
the home over her head and despoil
her and her children of their lawful shelter.    The woman who toils
early  and late  at her  household

Any Ohump Oan Knock
Don't criticise your neighbors' faults,
no matter what they do;
Don't ridicule the  masses  or   malign
. the chosen few;
Don't think yourself a censor of the
silly human flock,
And just remember as jou go that any
chump can knock.
Don't laugh at those who make mistakes or stumble on the way.
For you are apt to follow them-and
almost any day.
Don't think the other's shifting sand
while you are solid rock,
And don't forget,  for heaven's sake,
that any chump can knock.
Don't be a puller-down of fame on other
men conferred;
Don't give a parting kick to one who
fell because he erred;
Don't think that yon are  perfect and
the only size in stock,
And now, once more, just bear in mind,
that any chump can knock.
Strike of Rich Mineral.
A big strike of very rich mineral is
said to have been discovered in the Big-
Bend district late last fall, the details
of which have been kept very quiet by
the discoverers. A rush of prospectors
up ths Columbia river to cover the
country between that river and Seymour
river is almost a certainty. as soon as
navigation opens. The steamboat company are arranging plans to build a
warehouse, hotel and stopping place at
the foot of Priest Rapids on the west
side, to accommodate the travellers who
will go into the new field via that route.
Poison in Carbon Paper.
Poison, resulting from handling typewriter carbon paper, is the verdict of
prominent physicians in the case of
Miss Elizabeth Rowe, of Reno, Nevada.
Miss Rowe is likely to remain an invalid
for life and the doctors have issued a
warning to users of manifold sheets not
to allow coloring matter to reach the
throat or eyes.
Married at Afire of Fourteen
Charlie Crossin, 14, wearing knee
breeches, and Miss Minnie Corley, 30
years of age, were married at Maben,
Miss., last week. The boy's parents
would not allow him to return to his
newly wedded wife and in an hour after
the ceremony the couple were parted.
Miss Corley says she will commit
suicide if she is not permitted to live
with her boy husband.
