SATURDAY'S PICNIC
AT LOWER NIOOLA WAS ENJOYED
BY A LARGE CROWD.
The Annual "Blow Out" Last Saturday
Was a Deolded Success, and the
Sports and Pastimes Were
Enjoyed By All.
A bright day, which was neither
too warm nor too chilly, and with
a soft breeze blowing that seemed
to exhiliarate, furnished what may
be termed ideal weather for the annual picnic at Lower Nicola on Saturday last under the auspices of the
Methodist church.
From all parts of the district
came jolly picnicers in all kinds of
conveyances ��� save automobiles ���
bent on having a good time, and
unless all reports are fictitious they
certainly had it. Merritt was a deserted village on that day. From
early morning rigs began driving
out until every available carriage
in the camp was in commission ;
others paid their passage on Frisk-
en's varnished cars.
If was a great day for the youngsters ; they were in full force and
those who were too small to articulate "pie" and "icecream" made
signs that could not be misunderstood. The older kids, up to about
ninety, did not pass up anything
either.
The committee in charge of the
foot races and other athletic events
had a first class program arranged,,
which was gone through with with
pleasure and satisfaction to all.
We regret that we were unable to
obtain a complete list of the prizewinners for this issue.
For those not provided with lunch
baskets, the ladies of the church had
a dinner prepared. This dinner
was so good that many gave their
lunch baskets to Siwashes and got
in on the "big feed."
An impromptu dance, gotten up
by some of the young people, concluded a very happy holiday.

satisfactory and there is every possibility that the railway will be built on
this route.	
G. J. Bury, general manager of the
western lines of the C. P. R., visited
the valley last week, and after leaving
Nicola proceeded to Penticton, and was

were new���in Merritt. The couple are
very proficient on the guitar and mandolin. After each show a dance was held
which warmed thinga up considerably.

A sensation was sprung in the case
of George A. Walkem, who was found

on the charge of counselling abortion
and whose appeal is now being heard

of the important features and that
Walkem did not .counsel her to go to
Seattle to have an operation performed.
She is now recuperating at San Bernardino, Cal. It is likely that the letter
written by her will be placed before
the Minister of Justice.

Incendiarism in Victoria.
C. B. Bratton, agent of the Metropolitan Life Insurance company in Victoria, was arrested on Saturday charged
with incendiarism. He was caught coming from the board of trade building
basement, from which flames were
bursting. His actions have been suspicious, and he was shadowed for some
time before being arrested. He is
thought to have been responsible for
the fifteen fires which have broken out
in that city during the two previous
days, one of which did nearly $50,000
damage. Bratton was formerly in the
employ of the United States secret service department, and has been in Victoria two years, coming from Salt Lake
city.
Rod and Gun Birthday Number.
With the issue for June "Rod and
Gun and Motor Sports in Canada" published by W. J. Taylor, at Woodstock,
Ont., enters upon its tenth year, and
produces 'a birthday number one that
has not been surpassed by any of the
fine issues that have preceded it. Every one of the many articles appeals to
sportsmen and lovers of outdoor life
and may be read with interest The
record breaking moose hunt of Dr. W.
L. Munro in New Brunswick through
which, for the first time in the history of the province, the record is held
by an outsider, is rightly given a prominent position. Fishermen have their
interests well looked after, in addition
to a paper on live bait: How to Procure
and Preserve the Same, a story of Herring Fishing in the Rideau, and one descriptive of a One Hundred Mile Canoe
Trip in a search after bass by C. H. H.
Hooper, must secure attention from
those who find their most enjoyable
recreation in fishing. Judge Fraleck
reminds us of old times in a delightfully
reminiscent article on the Wayside Tavern and the Shooting Match. The scarcity of partridges, a subject of so much
comment amongst sportsmen, is discussed, the conclusion arrived at being
that in all probability the birds have
been killed off by a disease which has
been general in its character and results.

IDENTIFIES NEGRO
DAUGHTER   POINTS   OUT   SLAYER
OF HER MOTHER.
Little Mary Morrison Went  Tuesday
to Bellingham and Declared Jim
Jenkins Is Fiend Who Killed Her Motlur.
The following is from the Province
of Tuesday afternoon:
"Little Mary Morrison, the eight-
year-old daughter of Mrs. Morrison,
who was murdered two weeks ago at
Hazelmere, this morning at Bellinghanx
identified a negro named Jim Jenkins
as the man who killed her mother.
The girl had no hesitation at all in declaring that the jiegro was the man and
she insisted that she was absolutely
certain in her identification.
Jenkins was arrested at Wickersham
Wash., as long ago as June 12th, and
was held as a suspect. A charge of
vagrancy served to keep him in jail till
he could be conveniently brought to
Bellingham.
This morning Constable Spain took
the Morrison girl to Bellingham, and in
the county jail the girl identified the
negro as her mother's assailant.
Sherriff Williams was the officer who
in the first instance caused the arrest
of Jenkins. The latter was nervous
and frightened when arrested. Other
persons from Hazelmere who saw him
to-day declare that he was in the vicinity of the crime on the day of the
murder.
The little girl was able to pick Jenkins
out from amongst fifty prisoners. She
did this when Jenkins was dressed in
prison costume.
Later she correctly picked out from,
amongst a pile of clothing the suit
taken from the prisoner and which
she declared was that worn by him on
the day of the murder.
It is stated thst Jenkins gave no
account of his whereabouts on the day
of the murder.''

Merritt, B.C., June 25, 1908.
There is probably no man living
who possesses a wider knowledge of
Canada today than Sir Thomas
Shaughnessy, the president of the
Canadian Pacific Railway company.
For this reason a reference he made
to the western portion of the Dominion during his speech at Toronto is highly important. He
said: "Can anyone place a limit
on the possibilities of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan, Alberta and British
Columbia ? I would not say within the next ten years. I think I
know the western country as well
as most people. I have watched it
as carefutly as any, and I would
hesitate very mtich indeed to pronounce upon its future possibilities."
Mr. McKay, the leader of the
Liberals in Ontario, frankly confesses that he was surprised at the
result of the elections in his province. In constituencies where the
Liberals were united and enthusiastic, Conservatives were elected,
and Mr. McKay has no explanation
to offer. There is an explanation,
which may have occurred to him,
but he would hardly have felt like
making, namely, that there is a large
element in the electorate that is
not very pronounced one way or the
other and the voters comprising it
stood by Mr. Whitney because he
has been giving a clean administration and because the Ottawa regime has not been clean. In other
words the silent vote went Conservative. It is likely to do so at the
Dominion elections.

At the Republican National convention in Chicago last week Wm.
H. Taft received the nomination
for President of the United States
amid intense excitement, and after
an eight-hour session on the culminating day of the great caucus.
It was anticipated by some that
the convention would be stampeded
for Roosevelt, but all demonstrations in favor of the "Big Stick"
were quickly put down. It was no
surprise, of cour.^e, that Taft proved the successful nominee, but politics in Uncle Sam's domain take
such sudden and startling turns at
times that nothing is sure until the
show-down. The final result of
the voting was as follows: For
Theodore Roosevelt, 3 votes; Jos.
Foraker, Ohio, 16 ; Chas. W. Fairbanks, Indiana, 40; Jos. Cannon
of Illinois, 61 ; Robert Lafollette,
Wisconsin, 25; CharlesT. Hughes
of New York, 63 ; Philander Knox
of Pennsylvania, 68; William II.
Taft, Ohio, 702 votes. Mr. Taft
was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, in
1858, and held many important offices in the government of the
United States until he finally succeeded Klihu Root as Secretary of
War in the year 1904.
