WISE    ACTION   WITH   REGARD   TO
BUSH FIRE LAW
Stuart Henderson, M. L. A. for Riding
of Yale, is the New  Provtnclal
Liberal  Leader���Conservative Convention
In view of the numerous disastrous
fires throughout the province during the
past few years, originating from infractions of the Bush-Fire Act, the
courts are severely dealing with offenders. The latest amendment to the Act
requires that any owner starting a fire
on bush land between the 1st of May
and the 1st of October, shall first secure
a permit from the Fire Warden or his
deputies, or a Provincial Constable, or
such other persons as may be assigned
to that duty.
Provincial Conservative Association
One of the biggest conventions ever
organized in British Columbia will be
brought to Kamloops early in November when the Provincial Conservative
Association will meet in annual session.
Upwards of four hundred delegates will
be in Kamloops, and the convention will
continue for two days. This is the
first time that the gathering has been
held in the interior and naturally deep
interest is being manifested by the
Coast associations.
What The Editor Wants
Our Bunyan City correspondents are
requested to write  briefly and  to  the
point   in   preparing  their accounts of
quiet weddings; they may however consider themselves at perfect liberty to
spread themselves in giving details of
any uproarious weddings that may occur to break   the monotony in  their
respective neighborhoods.   We further
wish them to remember that a groom
attired in the conventional black is sufficiently covered without any description of his dress; but a groom married
in tar and feathers is worthy of special
rates and a full column with headlines.
If the happy couple then depart  they
should be permitted to go without saying;  but should they begin to pull hair
before the minister has got out of hearing we want all the particulars.   If the
table groans, let it groan;  but if  any
of the guests choke to death on the collation it will be a serious  matter  with
our special correspondent if we  don't
get complete and early returns.    What
we want is news that is news.
GREAT RESOURCES
SHOULD BY ALL  MEANS   BE  PRESERVED

President of Canadian Pacific, in

West Monthly
Provincial Liberals Convene
An infomal conference- of the provincial Liberals last week held in Vancouver. Amongst those in attendance
are Hon. Wm. Templeman, J. A. Macdonald, M. L. A.; Dennis Murphy, M
L. A. for Yale.
It was generally thought that John
Oliver would make a bid for the leadership, but as he did not put in an appearance at the caucus Stuart Henderson
was chosen as the new provincial Lib-
erl leader.
Englishmen Stay Home
The number of British immigrants to
Canada last year was 81,321, as against
151,216 the previous year. The number
who went to Australia was 96,869, as
against 170,264^;he previous year. The
number of immigrants from England
last year was the smallest in 31 years.
Wise Severity
"Big Sioux" Smith who has been
laid up at Aspen Grove for over a
month, is slowly but surely recovering
from an attack of rheumatic fever and
hopes to be amongst the hammers and
drills again shortly.

Dr. J. N. Taylor, D.D.G.M. of District No. 3, will constitute Nicola lodge
on Monday evening next. A. H. Skey,
J. G. W., and other visitors will be
present for the occasion.
An advertiser in the Herald last week
told us that his ad. brought him a customer forty miles from Merritt, that
gave him enough business to pay for
his ad. for some months to come. "It
evidently pays to advertise in the Herald," said the gentleman, and my experience with your paper has demonstrated this fact."
Woodmen Days at Seattle
The Modern Woodmen's days  at the
Alaska-Youkon-Pacific exposition August 25 and 26, will from present indications be the big Fraternal days  of the
fair.    Secretary Frank Skinner writes
that   eleven   committees are hard at
work.   Teams   have   already  entered
from numerous states,  and great expectations are looked for from at  least
one or two teams from the provinces in
the competitive drills.   The Forester
encampmejit at  "Camp Washington"
is already an assured success from  the
number of drill teams which have asked
for quarters.
C. R. Imerson, head deputy of the
Modern Woodmen of America, with
headquarters at Armstrong, B. C, is in
town in the interests of the organization. The Modern Woodmen have gained an enviable place in the ranks of insurance and beneficial societies in the
United States and are making rapid
progress in Canada. It is expected
that a branch of the order will very
shortly be organized in Merritt.
Five Girls Drowned
Five New   Westminster girls were
drowned while bathing at a picnic party
at Ahceville  on  Burrard   Inlet,   near
Port Moody, on Wednesday afternoon
Their names  were Gertrude   Ankers
annteand  May  Murphy,   Signe  Buck
And Alfhild Paulsen.
In the July issue of the Canadian
West Monthly, Wm.Whyte, second
vice-president of the C. P. R., contributes an article entitled The War
Against  Waste, in which he urges
the necessity of forest preservation
in Canada.    The article is a notable
contribution to the literature on the
subject and will undoubtedly exercise influence for good.    A number
of selections from Mr. Whyte's article are appended and indicate  its
tone and direction.    The article as
a whole should be read by all who
are at all interested iu this great
question.
From Cape Breton  to  Virginia
the   original   English   settlers   of
America   found   themselves   in  a
country  of   natural    opulence   so
great, especially in  timber,   water
and soil that such an eventuality as
exhaustion or even appreciable impairment  never   suggested   itself.
That was only three hundred  and
fifty  years ago���and  less.    They
came from a land where thrift and
care had been taught by centuries
of experience,  but  the  old  ways
were soon forgotten, and never renewed.    Until  very  lately,   there
was no uneasiness,   no  economy.
On the contrary, a tremendous incoming swirl  of  humanity swept
across   the   continent   after   the
eighteen-sixties,  carrying  with  it
the same  recklessness,   the same
waste, so that forests  have  faded,
streams have at some seasons washed bare the  lands,   and at  others
left them parching.    Iron and coal
have shrunken to a known supply
sufficient at the present rate of use
for not much more  than  another
hundred years.    Oil and gas fields
once thought perpetual  have  died
out; and in some of the older sections,  the soil  itself  has  become
sterile.    We have sported with our
resources until the end of them has
begun   o threaten, but we are fortunate in knowing what is left.

GAME   SLAUGHTER
IS PRACTISED BY INDIANS AT THIS
SEASON
It Is Claimed  that  During July and
August the Siwashes Are in the
Habit of Slaughtering Doe
and Young Fawn
LOCAL NEWS
The Home Journal for August is full
of many new and interesting features.
The first really warm weather of the
season has made its appearance this
week.
Henry Bansemar, a tonsorial artist
from Coleman, Alta., is in the valley
this week looking for a location.
A Chinaman has purchased a lot near
the proposed location for the C. P. R.
station, aud has a building in course of
erection.
A letter from Ernest Fraser, principal of the Merritt public school, states
that he will be back to the metropolis
about August 15th.
Last summer the remains of no less
than twenty-eight deer were counted in
an Indian camp by Wm. Rice, the prospector. At this season of the year is
when the greatest slaughter of doe
and fawns is made by the Siwashes.
The animals stay down on the lower
hills during the summer months and are
easy to bag. They also produce better
bucksjfin during July and August.
Recently the Merritt Athletic Club
made representations to A. Bryan Williams, the provincial game warden, for
the better protection of game in Nicola
valley. The result is that the names of
eight men best qualified for positions as
deputy game wardens have met with
the approval of Mr. Williams and their
appointments will be announced very
shortly in the B.C. Gazette.
It was also represented that the increased bounty on horned owls should
be extended to grey owls and all other
owls, as all owls have a habit of killing
grouse, prairie chicken, etc. But, worse
than owls, is the blue hawk, which is
constantly seen by people in the hills
carrying off game birds of all kinds-
even ducks and geese. A bount-' will
doubtless be placed upon all such birds
of prey in the near future.
James Williamson, "the man who
fell off his ranch," is doing a stunt behind the mahogany at Spences Bridge,
Bob Drainey taking a month's vacation.
Wm. Powell, the newly elected president of the U. M. W. of A. for District
18, accompanied by Mr. James, international organizer, arrived in town today in connection with the present
strike.
Yesterday's train was the longest
that left Merritt for some months past,
it included twelve cars of coal and
seventeen cars of the finest cattle that
left Nicola valley for some time. The
cattle were shipped to P. Burns & Co.,
Vancouver, by the Douglas Lake Cattle
Co., which will ship a like proportion
weekly for the next two months.
Joe Grahame left on yesterday'strain
for a short visit to the Seattle fair.
A meeting will be held in The Herald
hall next Monday evening at 8 o'clock
sharp for the purpose of organizing a
polo club for the district. All interested in polo, or who are desirous of connecting themselves with the popular
game, are requested to be present.
The Board of Trade meets next Wednesday evening in Menzies' hall.
The government road gang resumed
work Monday, graveling Nicola ave.
Thirty-four cars of coal have been
shipped from the Middlesboro mines
during the past week.
Hay making is the order of the day.
Owing to the backward spring the
hay crop in this vicinity will not be
quite so heavy as last year, but grain
and vegetables are in splendid condition.

Keep your eye constantly on the
Herald advertisements as many good
opportunities can be obtained therefrom.
The Montreal Star said in its joke
column in a recent issue: "A good
iooking suffragette has been seen in
London." It is a good job this appeared in a joke column for no one
would have believed it, even had it appeared as an item of news.
Messrs. F. Bailey and W. E. Duncan
returned Wednesday from an eight days'
professional trip in the Similkameen.
Now is the time to give in your orde'r

and Douglas pumps and can drive a
well at a reasonable figure. ��� M. N.
Adams, Merritt.
1000 men wanted to buy summer hats
for construction on Nicola, Kamloops
and Similkameen railway to be had at
half price, at G. B. Armstrong's big
store.
It has now been established that the
bandit murderer of Isaac Decker was a
brother of Haney, the dead robber, and
the two were well known California
outlaws, who fled from the state some
time ago leaving behind them a gruesome trail of crime.
P. H. Cantlin is down from Voght
valley. Pat. cannot understand the
object or reason of doing away with
the Coldwater and Voght valley mail
service, seeing that there are many
more settlers in the district than when
the route was first established.
A Jewish peddlar of ladies' dress
goods and costumes is in the valley and
is taking quite a number of orders for
the cheap material these people usually
travel in. It is strange, but true, that
women the country over cannot break
away  from the superficial conclusion

SQUIBOGRAPHS
The Herald has received a copy
of the Canada Year Book of 1908
from Ottawa. It was compiled by
Mr. Blue, the census commissioner,
and contains a vast deal of useful
information regarding trade statistics for last year. The census statistics however are useless as they
were tabulated in 1901.
The most prosperous appearing
town is the one with the greatest
evidence of local pride. It doesn't
require mansions and great lawns
to make a prosperous town, but
order, cleanliness and the evidence
of civic pride are an absolute essential. The neat, clean, well-kept
home, with the evidence of personal
interests, clean streets and back
alleys free from rubbish, are the
things which make a town inviting
and upon which prosperity in a
large measure rests.
James J. Hill has informed Mayor Jamieson, of Calgary, that he
is rushing the completion of his
Penticton, B. C. branch with the
object of getting a strong foothold
on the Rocky Mountain section of
Canada, and then be able to reach
out into the Prairie Provinces. Mr.
Hill said that the people of Western
Canada need not be surprised if
they found that he had swooped
down into their territory, as that is
his intention. Mr. Hill has our
permission to "swoop."
Of late numerous complaints have
been made to the Herald with regard to the running at large of horses and cattle and asking what the
law is with respect to the nuisance.
There is no doubt that the wild
careering of a bunch of horses about
our streets is a nuisance at all
times, and even a menace to children playing about during the day.
However, the statutes do not provide any special clauses to remedy
the evil in unincorporated towns,
but action may be taken upon the
owner of any animal against which
there is a grievance.
strike every time an agreement expires it would seem to the outside
to be a good plan if the points to be
brought to issue were raised at
least three months before the expiring of the agreement, aud if the
parties cannot come together, a
Conciliation Board should then be
appointed to arbitrate the points in
dispute. After all the strikes that
have taken place in this region it
may be safely said that not "one has
resulted profitably to either operators or miners, and the sooner this
abortive method of settling differences is relegated to the realm of
the obsolete the better it will be
for all parties.

grains of sugar, mingled with the

The Fraser River lumber mills,
near New Westminster, the largest
mills in the world, have decided to
do away with Asiatic labor and replace it with whites. Five hundred
French-Canadians are now coming
west to worK in the mills and logging camps and the Hindus who
have hitherto been employed will
be displaced by them. It is said
that the Hindus in the mills have
been remitting $7000 a month to
India and the Japanese do the same
thing on a smaller or larger scale.
The company now hopes to get
more trustworthy workmen and at
the same time to keep the money

"WHAT WOULD YOU DO"
If you were suddenly thrown upon your
own resources to battle for existence
and had r.o trade or special training or
means of livelihood? "Without Life
Insurance" your wife may be put in
just such a position. Why not secure
protection for her and your children by
joining
THE  MODERN WOODMEN
OF AMERICA?
The largest and best Fraternal Beneficiary Society in the whole world.
If you find it hard to pay interest on
the mortgage and meet the everyday
living expenses of your family, how do
you suppose your wife could pay the interest and keep the family together if
you should happen to die? A certificate
in the Modern Woodmen op America
furnishes the means by which the wife
can keep the family with her. Are you
a member? if not, get in on the ground
floor and become a charter member.
