WATCH OUR SMOKE
SAY THB  NEWLY ELECTED   FIRE
WARDENS
Protection of Merritt From Fire Will
Be the Incentive  of the Three
Wardens In Performance of
Their  Duties
The election of the three fire
wardens attracted unexpected attention, a large poll resulting. No
less than eleven candidates were in
the field, and the result of the poll
stood as follows:
McLean 16
Peterson 28
Eastwood 15
J. Marshall 17
Hyland 12
Clark 32
Menzies 12
Hoggan .10
W. Marshall 11
Steel 19
Fraser  8
The elected ones, fherefore, are:
Clark, Peterson and Steel.
The duties devolvent upon the
fire wardens are simply to inspect
any premises and order improvements made which will tend for
precaution against fire.
Subscribers are kindly requested
to hand in their respective amounts
not later than the 23rd of March.
March Home Journal.
The Home Journal for March con
tains a most startling article on the
"White Slave Traffic, "by Hon. E. T
Sims of Chicago, in which the inner
working of this nefarious trade in
young girls is laid bare. "Western
Women and the Dower" is the subject
of a most interesting discussion by
Lillian K. Beynon of Winnipeg, and
this with a quaint description of the
Life of a Prairie Settler by an Englishman, gives an insight into conditions in
the Great West. The March number is
of course Irish in tone and contains in
addition to two of Thomas Moore's
Irish melodies, an historical reference
to St. Patrick, Ireland's patron saint.
There is the usual amount of story
matter with interesting departments on
Fashions, Fancy Work, Sick Room,
Women's Institutes, Hou"ehold, etc.
For the boys some interesting coin
tricks are explained. An increase in
size and an advance in subscription
price is announced for June 1st, but in
the meantime subscriptions are being
taken at the old rate of 50 cents. The
Home Journal has developed wonderfully and is a credit to Canadian journalism.���The Home Journal and Nicola Herald can be obtained for $2.25
per annum to new subscribers at this
office.
Jos. Marshall and P. Thibadeau are
engaged on Alex. Coutlee's timber cutting contract for the Middlesboro collieries.
Rockefeller Escapes Fine
Believing it, impossible to obtain a
conviction of the Standard Oil Company
under the rulings of Judge Anderson,
the attorneys for the government announced on Wednesday the abandonment of their case against the oil company on thirty-six charges of accepting
rebates from the Chicago ffi Alton Ry.
The verdict wipes out completely the
famous $29,000,000 fine imposed on the
Standard by Judge Landis and also lets
the Standard Oil Company of Indiana
get off scot free. It is probable that
all the other indictments against the
Standard Oil Company in this jurisdiction will be quashed.
OF LOCAL IMPORT
THE LOCAL MINING SITUATION IS
NBAR1NG SETTLEMENT
A cougar, measuring seven feet, six
inches from tip to tip was traced up
and shot while lying on the limb of a
tree a mile and a half the other side of
Middlesboro by William Voght, jr. on
Thursday of last week. Mr. Voght
landed a bullet in his left side which
proved sufficient for the beast. The
hide was brought to the Coutlee store
and placed on the counter for exhibition. A year ago Mr. Voght shot a cougar measuring nine feet from tip to
tip.   The bounty on these beasts is $15.

Harry  Dupray Is Sentenced  to   Two
Years  and  Three   Months   For
Horse Stealing.-Hockey Is
On the Wane
A crowded meeting of the Middlesboro miners, was held on Thursday, being addressed by their district representative T. C. Brooke's
until a very late hour.
Through special arrangments the
mine was laid off for the afternoon
shift, enabling everyone employed
at the collieries to attend the meeting-
The final demands of the men
were gone through and settled to
their satisfaction.
Jas. Gray, who was delegated by
the company to confer with the
head officials in Vancouver, returned Wednesday with result that the
demands of the men for contract
work were refused. Consequently
the men laid off Friday but returned to work next day under former
conditions, pending arrangement
which will probably be concluded
on Sunday evening.
Fatal Explosion
Nelson, March 9.���The boiler of C.
P.R. Engine, No. 1381 exploded shortly
after midnight at Farron, a station on
the summit above the Columbia river,
going into the Boundary section. Donald McQuarrie, brakeman, was dreadfully scalded. He was brought here,
and died at the hospital. He was 26
years old and leaves a wife.
Francis Glover, aged 24, single, a
fireman of Trail, was blown six car
lengths, and fatally hurt. He is in
the hospital here, and his death is expected.
P. J. McCormick, of Nelson, engineer, escaped. He had left the engine
and gone up the line a moment before
the explosion. The engine, attached
to a freight train, was at a tank taking
water at the time of the accident.
INITIAL   WEDDING
LOCAL NEWS.
Hockey
Merritt won the hockey match at
Middlesboro on Sunday morning last by
a score of three to one. The game was
particularly fast and clean. Unless the
weather tightens up considerably, the
final game for the Haddad trophy will
not be pulled off this season. At present Merritt and Nicola are a tie so far
as points are concerned. Middlesboro
has been unlucky in not making a win,
so has decided to drop out of the running. Consequently Merritt and Nicola
will mix it in the deciding game, providing the weather man is willing to put
his freezer in operation for a day or
two. Dr. Curtin, of Nicola, was the
referee.
The Merritt junior hockey team was
defeated at Nicola on Saturday morning by a score of three to two. The
boys put up a good exhibition and the
locals were royally treated by the lads
of the lake.
We regret to report the serious illness of Mrs. Bills.
Mr. Taylor and family have taken up
their residence in Merritt.
Father Rohr, of Mission City is visiting in the valley.
Just arrived, men's and boys' suits at
Menzies' general store.
FIRST MARRIAGE CEREMONY PERFORMED THIS WEEK
Mrs. Williams of Canford is visiting
at Mrs. Jos. Marshall.
Geo. Guthrie, of Aspen Grove, was a
visitor to the coal metropolis this week.
Fred Shields returned on Friday from
a few weeks' visit to the coast.
J.   Hawkins,   of  Quiichena,   visited
Nicola and Merritt this week.
Go to Menzies'   General   Store for
fresh bananas and oranges.
Lewis E. Barlow and Mrs. Elizabeth
Gronow Participate In Merritt's
First Matrlmonal Knot-Tying Celebration
With Lewis E. Barlow and Mrs.
Elizabeth Gronow (late of Nelson)
rests the distinction of being the
contracting parties in the first wedding celebrated in Merritt.
The ceremony took place at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Bills on
Wednesday the 10th inst., Rev. D.
K. Allan officiating.
The bride looked handsome in a
beautiful gray suit, and was assisted by Kathleen Bills, who made a
dainty little bridesmaid. The
bridegroom's brother, Ben. Barlow,
acted as best man.
Immediately after the marriage,
the whole company was photographed at H. Priest's studio. This
ought to be an historical picture,
being that of this rising town's
first wedding. This feature concluded, the company returned to
partake of a sumptuous wedding
dinner.
The dance held in the evening
proved wholly enjoyable and Mr.
and Mrs. Barlow received the heartiest of best wishes for a long and
prosperous life of nuptial felicity.
They have taken up their residence
in Merritt.
A. E. Howse and wife, who have
spent the past nine months in Great
Britain and the continent, returned to
their Nicola home Monday.
Horse Thief Gets Hl��
Harry Dupray, who was arrested by
constable Clark for stealing a horse
and other articles from Siwashes at
Hot Creek, was given two years and
three months at New Westminster this
week. The prisoner was arrested half
a mile from Merritt on the Nicola road.
He was first taken to Ashcroft from
where he was sent up for trial by Magistrate Webb and electing for speedy
trial, and practically admitting his
guilt, his case was speedily despatched
by Judge Calder.
Owing to the fact that the ladies of
St. Michael's Guild are very busy preparing for the annual bazaar which takes
place on Easter Monday, no meeting of
the guild will be held on Wednesday,
the 17th.
Frank Bailey, M. E., returned on
Wednesday from a flying trip to Vancouver. He was greatly struck with
the growth on the city, it being ten
years since he last visited Vancouver.
Frank states the citizens are all excited
over the real estate boom which still
continues at high prices. These real
estate kings know nothing of the rich
virgin mineral and coal fields lying
domnant at Vancouver's back door for
the lack of capital for development.
The mineral resources of the interior
are practically an unknown quantity in
Vancouver. We hope the B.C. mineral
exhibit at the World's Fair this summer in Seattle will educate the coast
cities of the enormous possibilities of
legitamate mining in Yale District of
British Columbia.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
In New York financial circles
a big advance In the price of copper is anticipated very shortly, in
consequence of large foreign orders.
It is to be hoped that this expectation may be fulfilled, as a higher
price for this metal will have a very
stimulating effect on mining in
this province.
A pugilistic champion, even if
he be a trifle shady, commands
even more newspaper attention than
a high diplomatic dignitary. The
Vancouver World of Thursday devotes over a page of solid matter
to John Arthur Jonnson, the colored heavyweight punchologist.

As nearly as can be learned up
to time of going to press, the settlement of the wage dispute between
the miners and the Nicola Valley
Coal & Coke company rests in
abeyance. It is hoped, however,
that an amicable adjustment will
be arrived at shortly.
Ralph Smith may be appointed
chairman of the branding committee
of the House of Commons on mines
aad minerals. As Mr. Smith was
once a practical miner himself and
has graduated from the ranks, there
would bo a species of fitness in his
appointment.
The provincial government is being prevailed upon to continue the
good work which was started some
time ago to promote the industry
of fruit-growing, both by publicity
and experiment.

Fear of the Law
Montreal Star:    "A lawyer in the
Ontario legislature says that he could
never understand why cases should be
carried from one appellate 'court to another.   What is needed, in his opinion,
is 'more sittings of the trial court and
sne  appeal.'    This is a professional
opinion which coincides with lay feeling
and the desire of the litigants.   Justice
should be made cheap, and the popular
dread of the expensiveness of a law suit
banished.   It is possible for a community to Buffer because of too little litigation quite as severely as from too much.
A fear of 'going to law'  leads to oppression of the timid and the poor by
the rich and the strong,  and then,  on
occasion, to revolutionary appeals to
some phase of 'the unwritten law.' "
