Large Scale at Garcia Property.
���O. P. R. Agent for Merritt.
-Wedding Bells.
Work is progressing at the new shaft
and tunnel of rhe Diamond Vale Colleries on the Garcia property, and preparations are being made to work this seam
of coal on a large scale.
Timbers for the tunnel and rails are
being placed on the ground and in a very
short time the Diamond Vale company
should be producing good coal adjacent
to the main line of the railway. The
seam is about three feet in thickenss
and the tunnel will be continued on the
seam which has a gradual slope towards
the Coldwater river.
It is expected that this seam will open
up the property in first class shape and
is one of the seams which was found
during the boring last year.
By the first of the month a large force
of men will be at work on the property.
Buildings, etc., will be erected near the
workings to make it convenient for the
men and company during the progress
of development.

CUP  COMES WEST
WESTMINSTER WINS FINAL GAME
BT SCORE OF 6-2.
Shamrocks Go Down to Defeat Before
the Wily Lads of the West In
Lacrosse Series for Famous
Minto   Cup.
j
The lacrosse fiends of New Westminster are treading on the clear ozone
these days. The coast team on Tuesday
afternoon took the second game from
the Shamrocks at the Mile End grounds,
Montreal, and by that token will bring
to New Westminster the long-coveted
Minto Cup. i
The challengers/ put up a magnificent
game, and at times had the renowned
Shamrocks bewildered by their brilliant
playing. The weather was fine and a
large crowd witnessed the game. There
was plenty of eastern money in sight
and a goodly portion was cornered by
admirers of the westerners. The latter
went into the game with confidence
sticking out all over, but the supporters
of the cup defenders could see nothing
but victory before them.
The game was fast from the start,
and the speed and beautiful stick handling of the Westminsters brought three
straight goals in less than nine minutes.
The stiff checking and old-time tricky
manoeuvres of the once unconquerable
champions were overcome with apparent ease by the youths from the far
west. As in the first game "Dad"
Turnbull was the star of the visitors'
team.
The game was finished strong by
both teams, the score standing 6���2.
The team scoring the largest number of
goals in both games was the cup-
winners. In the first game Westminster won by 5���4. The total score,
therefore, stands:
New Westminster 12
Shamrock  7
Wm. Riley and family are moving into their fine new residence at Nicola
today.
Midnight thieves got a few bottles of
booze at the Hotel Merritt and a few
pounds of butter at the Coldwater late
Saturday night by breaking into the
storerooms of each hotel.
Perhaps in one of the store-ads in the
paper to-day you will read of something
which will touch your interests so unmistakably that it would have been a
personal misfortune to have overlooked
it!

August "Rod and Gun."
In the distinctive fashion which has
gained for "Rod and Gun and Motor
Sports in Canada," published by W. J.
Taylor, Woodstock, Ont., the character
of the best interpreter of the feelings
of sportsmen throughout the Dominion,
the opening article of the August number is an illustrated account of the Royal
Cape Breton Yacht squadron. Readers
in B. C. should be especially interested
in the first Rocky Mountain Goat bred
in captivity, Cycling Through British
Columbia, Fishing in Kootenay Lake

stories and articles make the number a
valuable one to all lovers of real sport.

place to put in a new bridge there. On
its completion they will return and finish up the Merritt bridge.
Brief Description of the Development
Work In Progress on Some Fine
Propositions Existing Near
This  Camp.
Apart from the enormous coal areas
now in process of development and yet
to be developed, there are other valuable mineral deposits close to Merritt
that will before long add greatly to the
importance and prosperity of the camp.
A visit to some properties within three
or four miles of Merritt on the west side
of the Nicola river shows that while
little shouting is being made, development work has been prosecuted steadily
and quietly on quite an extensive scale.
At A. McGillivray's iron property up
on the side of the mountain close to
Alex. Coutlee's ranch work has been in
progress for many months. A shaft
sunk about twelve feet revealed a vein
some six feet in width. A tunnel has
been drifted in close to 300 feet, which
is expected to tap the main ledge at any
hour. The formation at this property
is regular and the veins are traceable'
along the surface for several hundred,
feet. The ore is of excellent quality,,
carrying trom 40 to 50 per cent, of metallic iron, with phosphorus and sulphur
in negligible.quantities, and there are
no foreign substances sufficient to affect
its smelting qualities.
Robert Henderson is doing development on a similar lay-out over the brow
of the hill from the McGillivray property and is meeting with great success
in the way things are shaping for a
good body of first-class ore. There are
several other claims held in this section
which competent mining men claim are
future money-makers.
Following a trail along the river bank
for about three-quarters of a mile from
the McGillivray mine, are a group of
copper claims upon which "BoV Waik-
sheur, the well-known colored prospector, has men engaged in work which he
"reckons" will make somebody sit up
and take notice before a great while���
and some notice has already been taken
for Mr. Waiksheur recently turned
down a Spokane outfit's offer of $40,000
for the holdings. He has copper showings sticking out all over the face of a
steep incline, and a couple of deep cuts
which have been made reveal the ore in
quantities which seem to spell big money.
Assays show the value of the ore to run
about $20 to the ton in copper and $2.90
in gold with a trace* of silver. Mr.
Waiksheur, assisted by "Tex" Elliott
and Fred Marshall, has about completed
a fine wagon road along the base of the
mountain below the ore bodies to connect with a road leading to the government bridge now being built over the
Nicola at Chas. Collett's place. A shute
will be constructed up to the workings
and the ore dumped into bins at the bottom ready for hauling away. Already
about two carloads of the ore is sacked
ready for shipment to the smelter when
the wagon road is finished. Every indication goes to show that this property
will make itself heard when development
is gone into on a scale commensurate
with its possibilities.
These and other properties in this
section of the valley go to show the
great potentialities the district possesses. The time is not far off when smelting and coking plantawili of necessity
be established in the locality, but even
when the extension of tkej railway facilitates transportation, ts the Boundary
business in connection with, eur copper
and iron deposits will boom along with
no uncertain hum. THE   NICOLA    HERALD

President Roosevelt urges his
fighting men to become experts in
the game of battle. He would aid
civilization were he to send them
to Persia and Turkey to practice on
the blood-thirsty slayers of women
and children in those countries.

desecration and preserved for the
people's use. ���
At a conservative estimate the wheat
crop will amount to 125,000,000 bushels
and will be worth about $72,000,000.
It is perhaps just as well that
urgent government business caused
Premier McBride to side-step the
tercentenary celebration at Quebec
and therefore the knighthood which
would have been bestowed by the
Prince of Wales. The sudden
change from plain "Dick" to "Sir
Richard" would be too great a
shock for his tillicums west of the
Rockies. ,
The Doukhobor women in jail at
Prince Albert, Sask., have to be

���should be shipped to Ottawa to
partake of a loving-cup with Premier Laurier and his immigration
commission.

why does he not deal out a fair

One of the most important events
in connection with the Quebec tercentenary occurred on Thursday
last when the Prince of Wales handed over the title deeds of the Plains
of Abraham to the governor-general
as trustee for the Canadian people,
thus preserving the ancient battlefield to the nation for all time.
The event took place at the conclusion of the great military and
naval review, and fully eighty
thousand people were gathered on
the plains to witriesS the impressive
ceremony. The battle of the
Plains of Abraham marked the
final conflict for British supremacy
in Canada. It was here the great
British general Wolfe and the great
French general Montcalm both lost
their lives in a battle that won for
each imperishable glory, and finally
resulted in closely uniting the two
races in the bonds of friendship.

AS OTHERS SEE US.
The deliverances of a judge from the
bench invariably carry with them the
greatest weight, and the following appreciation of the modern newspaper by
Justice Davidge of Boise, Idaho, in the
course of a case, will be read with interest.
Referring to the newspaper he declares:
' 'To those who need it and to those
who appreciate it, it becomes of great
value. It is like a ray of light in a sick
room, or a drop of water to the thirsty
flower. The modem up-to-date newspaper of today is the poor man's friend
and the busy man's guide. The newspaper comes to us as a friend; it greets
Us and advises us of the news of the day
and the ships that pass in the night.
There is no civilization, and no happy
home in our land today without the
newspaper. The prospector, the miner
the herder, the forest ranger, and even
the criminal, who is trying to escape
justice, will ride for miles and miles over
rough mountain trails to get from the
little wooden box, nailed to a tree, the
newspaper. It tells him of home and
friends and if all are well; it tells him
of sickness or of fortune or of the condition of the market. It is food and
.thought and joy to him; he welcomes it
as his teacher and friend. It gives him
and every intellectual man woman and
child a sort of hand-hold on the doings
of the day and the pulse of the country.''
This gem of eugloy from the west opens
the doorway sufficiently to give us a
glimpse of the true place occupied by a
newspaper in the estimation of the people.
The newspaper of today is not merely a
news conveyor, it is the voice through
which popular sentiment finds expression. It is the champion of the rights
and the libe-ties of the people. It is the
chief safeguard locally and universally
of the best interests of society. Remove
the modern newspaper from the social
order and you have a state of utter chaos
and confusion, too grievous to contemplate. We commend a man who knows
how to value a newspaper and who gives
uniform and tangible expression of his
appreciation of its worth. The man who
speaks depreciatingly of the present
day newspaper is a back number, a re-
actionaay force, a dangerous factor.
Every newspaper may not attain to the
highest standard of excellence (howbeit,
as a rule, each is up to the best level
obtainable on the basis of support received), but the fact remains that the newspaper as an institution is probably the
greatest force in society in our day.
Such tremendous facts should be sufficient, when rightly considered, to cause
every cit'zen to rally about the local
paper wherever found, to accord it his
loyal support, and to experience a sense
of civic pride in its progress and success.
