Return Conservative Members.
Martin Burrell and A. S. Goodeve returned by
Good Majorities.���Duncan Ross Goes Down
by over One Thousand against Mr. Burrell
The West keeps up its Record.
Martin Burrell, the conservative candidate is elected by
about one thousand of a majority over Duncan Ross, the
late member. Notwithstanding
that the election was postponed,
giving the government considerable the prestige of having
his party in power. The electors of Yale-Cariboo came to
the polls and voted for a square
deal for British Columbia and
a man that will represent the
district with honor to himself
and to the province. All over
the district the vote was in
favor of Mr. Burrell and Nicola
Valley which always gave a
liberal majority this election
gives the conservatives in the
neighborhood of forty to the
good. Below will be found the
votes in this section and in the
next issue will be given the full
returns.

ITEMS OF INTEREST
THANKSGIVING DAY PAPER OHABE
A   SUCCESS.
Serious Electric Railway Accident Near
Vancouver.���Settle Montana
Coal   Strike.-Turkey
Shoot.
Through an unexplainable error on
the part of a switchman in giving instructions to a motorman, caused one
of the worst electric railway accidents
which has ever occured on the lower
mainland when two cars met in a
head-on collision on the Vancouver-New
Westminster interurban line last
Saturday evening in a dense fog. The
motorman of the Vancouver car was
killed instantly, the motorman of the
New Westminster car died the next
morning.   There were nineteen injured.
Twelve miles of the International
Boundary line between Alaska and British Columbia were surveyed during the
past season.
J. Anderson, who has been standing
trial at the Fall Assizes at Vernon on a
charge of murder, was convicted by the
jury of manslaughter. The case was
one for shooting, the result of a dispute
over the use of water for irrigating
purposes, in which a man by the name
of Layton was shot and killed.
The paper chase held under the
auspices of the Nicola Athletic Association at Nicola on Thanksgiving Day
was the most successful in the annals
of the N. A. A. About forty ladies
and gentlemen taking part, and from
start to finish was a good run. The
start was made from the Association
grounds and ended at the Bank of Montreal. Thomas Heslop and Fred D.
Lauder as the hares gave the riders a
lively chase over a distance of six miles.
The winners being Miss Z. Palmer and
E. J. Riley, Miss E. Thynne and Dr.
Curtin.
In the evening the annual dance of
the Association was held in Pooley's
Hall, which was largely attended and
where the President of the Association,
A. W. Strickland, presented the
prizes to the winners of the chase.
Another feature was the handing
over of the Cripps-Tyson Trophy to the
N. A. A. by Mr. Gibson of the Middlesboro Athletic Association, the Nicola
Association being winners of the tennis
tournament this season.
Settle Montana Ooal Strike.
All troubles in Montana coal mines
were disposed of Saturday when the
executive board of the Montana Coal
Shippers' association and the United
Mineworkers district No. 16 decided on
the tonnage scale at the mines of the
Spring Creek Coal company, near
Lewiston. The men asked for $1.30 a
ton and the company offered $1.25. A
compromise was made on the basis of
$1.28 a ton.'
SUDDEN DEATH.
Two Chinese  Boys Meet Mysterious   End.
A mystery surrounds the
death of two boys, aged four
and six years, sons of a Chinese resident of Merritt. The
boys with their mother went to
Ashcroft last Saturday, and
Sunday afternoon both were
taken sick and died soon after.
The remains were brought
to Merritt, and Thursday afternoon a post mortem examination of one of the bodies was
held by Dr. Tutill and Dr.
Curtin ; it was discovered that
one of the lungs were affected
and a quantity of poison, presumably Chinese, was found in
the stomach, which was removed and sent to the coast to
an analyst, who will make a
thorough analysation of the
poison. The double funeral
took place Friday afternoon.
SURVEY   FINISHED
C.P.R. RUNS PRELIMINARY FROM
NICOLA, BAST.
A fearful wreck occurred on Saturday
afternoon about 3 o'clock on No. 8 mine
tracks of the big coal tipple at Michel,
resulting in the serious injury of Chas.
Coutious, a young Hungarian motor
driver, who is now lying at the hospital
in a precarious condition.
Lord Douglas in Trouble.
It is reportrd in Cranbrook that
Lord Sholto Douglas, who has a residence near Creston, is under arrest at
that place for shooting and severely
injuring a man with a shotgun. It is
said that Lord Sholto unexpectedly returned to his house, and finding the
man there, ordered him out. As he refused to go, and being a man of much
greater physique than Douglas, the
latter caught up the gun and shot him
in the back of the neck.
It now begins to look as though Michelle Lakemp, the Indian who disappeared from the Kamloops reserve on
October 21st, has been the victim of
foul play.
A report brought into Shuswap by
Indian couriers last week, was to the
effect that his body had been found in
the Thompson River, and that a bullet
wound was found through the heart.
On the night of Lakemp's disappearance there was a drunken brawl amongst
the Indians and the missing man was
himself the worse of liquor.
Penticton had its first fire on Sunday
last. It originated in the dwelling
rooms above Pomeroy*s confectionery
store and extended to Kent & Sons'
harness shop and McMullin's bakery,
all of which were completely destroyed,
though considerable of the contents
were saved. The loss will aggregate
about $4000.
"Paddy" Rodgers, the last member
of a notorious gang of desperadoes that
terrorized Butte and vicinity for years
and who killed three of his victims during his career, figured in scores of
daring holdups and escaped from jail
three times, is in jail at Butte, Montana,
after one of the fiercest battles he ever
fought with his victims.
Chinese Head Tax.
A question as to whether Chinese
wives of white men are liable to the
$500 head tax on landing in Canada has
been raised by the arrival on board the
steamer Empress of India of two British engineers who have been working
on the Canton Kowloon railroad bringing Chinese wives. They told that their
wives should be considered as taking
the husband's nationality and consequently not be amenable to the tax.
The question has been referred to
Ottawa.
The Line Traverses One Hundred and
Sixty Miles between Nicola and
Penticton.���Work started
last April.
The C. P. R. has just completed a
preliminary survey of the route which
the extension of the Spence's Bridge-
Nicola line may take from Nicola to
Penticton. Ultimately the line will be
continued from Penticton to Midway,
where it will link up with the Columbia
& Western railway, finally furnishing a
C. P. R. line from Vancouver to the
Boundary country.
Whether the C. P. R. or the Great
Northern will be the first to connect the
Boundary with the coast is a matter of
considerable speculation. The roads
have started construction from opposite
ends, the C.P.R. from Spence's Bridge
and the Great Northern from Keremeos
and both are surveying and building a
little more road all the time.
The survey just completed by the
C. P. R. was carried out by Mr. H. E.
Carry of the Company's engineering
staff. He started the work in April and
has just returned to Vancouver. The
line traverses one hundred and sixty
miles in running between Nicola and
Penticton and it is learned that excellent grades have been secured.
The route, while not given exactly
for publication, lies through the Similkameen valley and into the Okanagan,
where it skirts the town of Summerland
en route to Penticton. The C. P. R.
already has a number of preliminary
surveys of possible routes from Penticton to Midway.
It is not presumed that any immediate
results will follow the completion of
the survey carried out by Mr. Carry,
but reports and Field notes are now
being compiled for transmission to
headquarters, and it is possible another
step toward the construction of the line
may be taken next summer.
Newfoundland Returns'.
Returns from Newfoundland give the
Government 17 seats and the Opposition
18. St. Barbe has yet to be heard from.
At the last election it gave the Bond
candidate 300 of a majority and will
likely go Government again. This will
make the parties tie, 18 to 18, in the
Legislature.
No confirmation can be had here of
reports from the Pacific coast that W.
W. B. Mclnnes, the defeated Liberal
candidate in Vancouver, will be taken
into the cabinet. It is said that Hon.
Mr. Templeman will not be dropped if
it is possible to provide a seat for him.
Mr. Wm. Sloan, the member for
Comox-Atlin, it is said, would not retire
in favor of Mclnnes, as he is credited
with ambitions of his own. It is possible that he might be induced to stand
aside for Mr. Templeman, although this
is by no means certain. THE  NICOLA  HERALD

Merritt, B.C., November 13, 1908.
What is really public opinion in
Great Britain with regard to the
important question commonly covered by the general term tariff reform? Lord Milner, a self-confessed imperialist and tariff reformer,
has told Canadians that every other
issue eliminated, tariff reform
would be endorsed at the next general elections in the old country.
He claimed in his Toronto speeches
that the change in fiscal conditious
in England would taKe the form of
imperial mutual imperial preference. A very different opinion
is held by Francis W. Hirst, the
editor of the London Economist, a
paper which is regarded as being
one of the best informed of Loudon
financial journals. Mr. Hirst is at
present visiting Toronto, and in
the course of an interview pointed
out that not only is one of the two
great political parties in Great
Britain pledged to absolute free
trade, but Mr. Balfour and the
Conservative party generally intend
evidently to appeal to the country
on other issues than fiscal reform.
As an individual Mr. Hirst does
not occupy such a large place in
the public eye as Lord Milner, but
his position is such that he comes
very closely into touch with public
opinion, and therefore his views
are not merely interesting but important.
The Grand Trunk Railway and
the Provincial Government have
come to an agreement in respect of
the holding of the first sale of lots
in the townsite of Prince Rupert
next spring and it has beeu determined to auction a large number of
blocks in the central part of the
town. The sale will take place
during the early part of May,
The population of Prince Rupert
is estimated at 500, not including
the men working in the railway
camps.
Six hundred and sixty-seven
Chinese left Victoria the first of the
month for the approaching New
Year.
Here's a Proposition
The rapidity with which England builds her warships is shown
in the remarkable short time occupied in the construction of each
of the six "Dreadnoughts," which
she will have afliatby next month.
The average time of construction,
from the time of laying the keel to
the launch, was seven and one-
third months. With this rate of
building and the large number of
government and private dockyards
at her disposal, she could pretty
well replace the wastage of war, as
it occured, with new ships, if she
should ever be forced to a protracted struggle.
More than six hundred houses
have been started in Fernie since
the big fire. Some of them are
finished and occupied, and some
are well under way, while others
have only been started. This is a
remarkable record for less than
three   months.
Twenty-four Japanese have applied to become British subjects at
Prince Rupert.

Longboat a Professional.
Tom Longboat, the great Indian
runner, is now a professional. This
announcement was made by Tom Flanagan, of the Irish-Canadian Athletic
Club, who will manage the Indian
during his professional career. The
reason advanced by Flanagan for the
change is that the Indian wants the
money and he will have to be paid for
future performances.
A year ago Longboat was offered
$2,000 by the propritor of the Montreal
"Star" if he would remain amateur for
five years.
Heroism Unnoticed.
Extreme disappointment will be
caused in Pacific coast shipping circles
by the decision of the Carnegie hero
fund commission in refusing a medal to
Mrs. Minnie A. Paterson, whose brave
act saved the lives of the crew of the
barque Coloma wrecked off Vancouver
Island in December, 1906 Marine men
familiar with the details of the case
believe that no more heroic act was ever
performed on this coast. Mrs.Paterson's
deed was exploited far and wide at the
time, and it was believed the Carnegie
commission would recognize her.
