NOTHING DOING
MINES REMAIN CLOSED
STRING TO CONCESSIONS OF MINE
MANAGER   GRAY
The Herald is issued a day late
this week awaiting developments
at the mines. The men held meetings last night and this morning.
At 11.30 this morning the ultimatum was handed out, and there
will be nothihg doing at the mines
at least until after the conciliation
board, meets in. a few days.
F. A. Acland, deputy minister of labor
in a recent telegram asked Mr. Brooke
to try and get men to resume work
pending the immediate sitting of the
conciliation board. Mr. Brooke immediately telegraphed W. H. Armstrong
at Vancouver, and late last evening received a reply to the effect that Mr.
Armstrong was quite willing the men
should resume under the conditions
stated, providing Mr. Gray, the mine
manager here, would concur.
Consequently, the meeting this (Saturday) morning to have a committee
wait on Mr. Gray for his decision.
Mr. Gray cannot apparently get rid
of the discrimination mania, and said a
portion of the men could go to work.
Probably those not selected could hit
the ties. The iron themselves were
perfectly willing to go back, and Mr.
Armstrong and Mr. Acland both appeared anxious they should do so. The
local manager is evidently the stumbling
block and until he forgets a few things
the men seem determined to hold out.
It would appear that the least he could
do would be to meet the union committee half way and allow a resumption
of work without any discrimination until after the decision of the conciliation
board. Mr. Acland has appointed on
this board T. C. Brooke, district representative of the U. M. W. of A. and
Thos. Kiddie of Washington, who decide
on a third man.
Coal Claims Bonded
Stuart Henderson, M.P.P., has taken
an option on the North Thompson coal
lands, above the Upper Indian Reserve,
and the first payment was made this
week. His Honor the Lieutenant-Governor James Dunsmuir is stated to be
interested in the deal. The opening up
of the coal lands will mean much to
Kamloops and district.
J. W. Collis, representing the Vancouver branch of Mussens, Limited,
was in the valley the past week in connection with railway and mining supplies. Mr. Collis spys it is reported on
good authority that the extension of
the railway from Merritt up the Cold-
water will be commenced this summer.
G. M. Gemmill, the druggist who is
to open up in business here within two
weeks' time, has goods ordered from
some of the best wholesale firms on the
coast, a portion of which are already on
the road. The new store will be temporarily located in the front portion of
G. H. Nash's bakery. Mr. Gemmill
will make every effort to serve the
community in a complete and satisfactory manner.

BANKERS BANQUET
RECEPTION TENDERED THB B4NK
OF MONTREAL STAFF
An enjoyable farewell social was
given by members of Court Nicola, A.
O. F., to Bro. A. H. Carrington at Nicola, on Tuesday evening, on his departure to take up work at the coast.
A fine silver cup has been given by
the A. E. Suckling company, of Vancouver, for the Victoria Day sports.
The trophy will be awarded for the
half-mile foot race.
Mr. Morgan, of Manitoba, is in the
coal metropolis, the guest of H. John
and W. Williams, old friends from
Wales. Mr. Morgan likes Nicola valley
climate and may remain here.
A. H. Skey, D. D. G. M., of the
Masonic order, officiated at a special
meeting of the lodge at Nicola Wednesday evening. A number of Merritt
brethren were present.
The concert at Middlesboro on Friday,
under Presbyterian church auspices,
was a decided success. Each item on
the program was well sustained and the
hall was well filled. The audience
showed their appreciation of every piece
rendered.
Further donations have been tendered
the Merritt Athletic club for the big
time on Victoria Day, as follows : R.
P. Rithet & Co., Victoria, case of King
George IV Scotch whisky; Pacific Bottling Works, Seattle, who make the
Rainier beer, a silver cup.
Stanley Kirby, the genial proprietor
of the Driard hotel at Nicola, circulated
among friends at the coal metropolis
Wednesday. Since the completion of
the annex to this hotel Mr. Kirby's
popular resort gives increased accommodation and is fitted up in excellent
shape to handle the traveling public.
A slight error occurred in last week's
report of Dr. Hone's remarks at the
Shulus mission school concert. The
statement that the governmentgaveno
grant for the school is incorrect. There
is an annual grant of $300 towards the
maintenance of the mission but no assistance had been given by the government towards fitting up a building.
Merritt Business Meet In Most Happy
Gathering at Hotel Merritt and
Spend   Time   in  Feasting
and Speechmaking
A. W. Strickland, manager of
of the Nicola and Merritt branches
of the Bank of Montreal, and A.C.
Gourley, sub-agent here, were tendered a banquet at the Hotel Merritt on Saturday evening last.
The occasion was in honor of the
institution of the Merritt branch
and proved a great success from
every standpoint. The business
men of the town were well represented and a jovial spirit of mutual
good-will was omnipresent throughout the evening. Mine Host, Geo.
E. Hygh, was responsible for one
of the most elaborate "spreads"
ever enjoyed in the valley. The
inner man was bontifully provided
for, and the table decorations, under the tasty supervision of Mrs.
Hygh, were all that the heart
could desire.
G. B. Armstrong, occupied the
toastmaster's chair and filled the
position most acceptably. The
toast list drew forth speeches from
those called upon which did the
respondents credit. The various
subjects discussed were mostly of a
local color, of much importance to
the growing town and were treated
in a serious vein that attracted great
interest. Many propositions were
advanced that will prove of considerable benefit to this budding metropolis���that of the formation of
a board of trade not being the most
inconspicuous.
It was the unanimous opinion
that the securing of a bank for
Merritt was a most advantageous
boost, and the fact that this institution was a branch of the Bank of
Montreal made the boost all the
merrier.
The various toasts were called
and responded to as follows :
The King G. B. Armstrong
Uncle Sam R. Whimpel
Our Guests	
A. W. Strickland and A. C. Gourley
Trade and Commerce J. A. Menzies
The Coal Industry Jos. Graham
Our Pioneers���W. Voght and J. Garcia

Future of Merritt J. P. Boyd
Medical Fraternity	
Drs. Tutill and Curtin
Nicola Valley Frank Bailey
Our Host and Hostess	
G. E. Hygh, W. Mclntyre, I. Eastwood
The remarks by Messrs. Voght
and Garcia, descriptive of the days
of the 50's and the 60's were very
interesting and were received with
much enthusiasm.
A couple of songs by Miss Freeman in the early part of the evening happily assisted the program.
Numerous stories and reminiscences produced many a hearty laugh
and the singing of "Auld Lang
Syne" brought this wholly enjoyable occasion to a close. ��� B���-��._ :

An exchange remarks : "There
are two ways of spending your dollar: you can spend it at home, gain
an easy conscience, make another
friend and perhaps get the dollar
back tomorrow; or you can send it
away, feel that you have sinned,
offend the home merchant and forever lose the dollar and the blessed
influence for good to yourself and
neighbor."
