In Saturday's game the easterners
lost by a score of six to four, and in
Tuesday's contest they did one point
better, losing by six to five. Both
games were very strenuous and the
Indians had the better of them in the
beginning, but when the Royals once
got warmed up they set a terrific pace
and at times quite bewildered their opponents with their famous swift rushes
and accurate combination work.
Both games were as clean as they
were fast and the Torontos were surely
royally treated by the Royals during
their stay at the coast. Westminster,
to all present indications will retain the
Viceregal silverware in their strong-
house by the salmon factory for some
time to come.

G. Thynne's which became a foster

see the photo at this office.
A well attended meeting of the board

Cleasby, in the chair. Several new
members have been accepted since last
meeting and the outlook for the future
of the organization is very bright.

Change at The Mines
Thomas McGuckie late overman for

has been appointed mine manager for
the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Co Ltd
at their Middlesboro mines, tender
James Gray who has been appointed
general superintendent of all the company's mines.
Mr. McGuckie has been upwards of
five years in this province and upwards
of three years in the service of the
Western Fuel Co. His services will be
a great acquisition to the company in
the further development of their mines
at Middlesboro.
The change takes place tomorrow
(July 1st).
At present there are 63 men working
in and around the mines. The company
has shipped 2000 tons of coal since they
opened the mines on the 7th of June
The streets are to be named
languages���Gaelic and Siwash.

Mayor Al. Johnston circulated in Merritt on Monday. Al. and Dick Hardy
are thinking of passing round a subscription list to secure a church for
Bunyan camp. That's right, boys; be
good���and careful.
A tramp was gathered by the pound-
keeper while reposing on a sawdust
pile. There is also a rumor current
that four bottles of Scotch have found
their way into the camp. The alder-
manic staff is investigating. We are
bound to keep this a model city.
One train robber shot dead by special
officer Ike Decker, who in turn had his
head blown off by a second bandit, the
third robber escaping, and the slayer of
Decker at bay in an old mining tunnel
near Ashcroft, is the summary of developments as the outcome of the daring holdup of train No. 97 at Ducks.
The gun duel that caused  the death
Burns & Co., J of Decker is briefly told:   Two of the
' train robbers were seen landing from a
boat by Special Constable Isaac Decker.
One of them fired at Decker and Decker
shot him dead.   His companion then
shot Decker through the head,  tearing
off the skull and killing him instantly.
The murdere-rrobber was at once
chased with bloodhounds, and the latest
despatch from Ashcroft says:
Detective  Draper,   of Spokane, who
has charge of the bloodhounds, has sent
here for more assistance.   The robber
is concerned in a mining tunnel at Red
Gulch, six  miles east  of here and is
putting up a hard fight.   The dead robber has been identified as the man who
ordered the C.P.R. engineer to stop the
train at Ducks.    Two girls told the
police that up to the time they passed
forty-two   miles above   Ashcroft the
three men were in  the boat and one
got out.
Thirty pounds of dynamite were found
in the boat, and it is thought that the
robbers intended holding up a train at
two | Ashcroft to get cash to enable them to
reach the coast.   It will be impossible
for the bandit to hold out much longer.
Decker was well known to  many  in
Merritt and vicinity and  his terrible
death is deeply regretted.
Hatfuls of Gold
N. W. Fessler has shown us clippings
from Eastern States papers giving details of the wonderful gold strikes in
the Sierra. Between $75,000 and $100, -
000 in almost pure gold was loosened by
a blast in El Dorado tunnel at Alleghany about June 1st. Hatfuls of gold
with particles of quartz attached were
picked from the floor of the tunnel.
The El Dorado had only been bonded two
weeks previous for $25,000.
Another strike was made in the Alleghany where large quantities of ore
worth $60 a pound was found.
Church Services.
Anglican Church:
Rev. J.  Thompson will conduct services next Sunday as follows:
Nicola, holy eucharist, 11 a.m.
Nicola, evensong 7.30 p.m.
Presbyterian Church:
Rev. D. K. Allan will conduct services
next Sunday as follows:
Merritt at 3 p.m.
Middlesboro, 7 p.m.
Methodist Church:
Rev. J. W. Hedley will conduct services next Sunday as follows:
Nicola, 11 a.m. and 7.30 p.m.
Lower Nicola, 3 and 7.30 p.m.
The trustee board of Methodist church
desire to express their appreciation of
the assistance given them in making
the annual picnic so successful. The
donations towards the tables and assistance for sports exceeded their expectations. The entertainment in the
evening was not under auspices of the
church but strictly a private affair.���A.
R. Carrington, Secretary.
Fred J. Pyle will leave on Thursday
for the coast. Fred has been employed
with G. B. Armstrong for about eight-
teen moments and has made numerous
friends in both a business and social
way. He is a good sport and was a
staunch member of the M. A. C, and
there are many who will regret his departure from the valley. Although Fred
is something of an oyster on the subject, it is generally believed he has,
serious matrimonial intentions.

Merritt, B. C, July   2, 1909.
BIG  DAY  AT   NICOLA
Nicola will be en fete tomorrow,
Dominion day, There is no doubt
in the minds of the committees in
charge as to the big success that
will attend the celebration at the
city by the lake, and the citizens
generally are quite optimistic with
regard to the outcome.
An excellent program has been
prepared, good prizes are being
���offered, train accommodation and
other preparations for handling a
big crowd have been looked after
and a brass band is an attraction
that will help out wonderfully with
the day's sport, so the person who
cannot figure out a thoroughly good
day's enjoyment tor himself at Nicola tomorrow may as well go out
to Africa and help Teddie Roosevelt scare the lives out of elephants
and lions.
Merritt and vicinity will be largely represented, and the people from
the upper end of the valley will be
there with both feet and their Sunday lassies. Nor will the Siwash
braves and the klootchmen be out
of the swim by any means���they
never are when there's "doings."
Altogether, the crowd will be a
bumper one, unless an earthquake
or a flood comes along.
Nicola's celebrations in the past
have always been pronounced successes, and it is a foregone conclusion that Dominion day this year
will be no exception.
The Herald is issuing Wednesday
this week in order to allow the staff,
(including the devil and the dog)
to get a smash at the good time to
be passed around tomorrow at the
foot of the lake.
SQUIBOGRAPHS
again got itchy feet. He has sold
in the new railroad city and is about
to "hit the grit" for Texas and old
Mexico. John has hit many grits
���and some Conservatives.
Any individual who conceives a
bright idea has a privilege to launch
it in the interests of the community
in which he resides. It is not only
his privilege but his duty, no matter whether he be a lawyer or a
lumberjack. Start something, if it
possesses merits of mutual benefit.
Start something !
Water will run up hill if there is
force enough behind it, but when
the force is suspended, the water
falls to level again. So it is with
the knocker, the egotist and the
pessimist. Sufficient influence may
be brought to bear to keep them in
the band wagon for awhile, but when
the influence subsides, they invariably sink back again into the retrogressive groove. Beware of the
groove !
Saturday Night
Saturday night, and the week's work
done, and the Old Man home with a
bunch of mon'! You see him sit on the
cottage porch, and he puffs away at a five-
cent torch, while the good wife sings at
her evening chores, and the children
gambol around around outdoors. The
Old Man sits on his work-day hat, and
he doesn't envy the plutocrat; his debts
are paid and he owns his place, and he'll
look a king in the blooming face; his
hands are hard with the brick and loam,
but his heart is soft with the love of home.
Saturday night, ami it's time tor bed !
And the kids come in with a boynnt tread;
and they hush their noise at their mother's look, as she slowly opens a heavy
book, and reads the tale of the stormy
sea, and the voice that quieted Galilee.
Then away to bed and the calm repose
that only honesty ever knows. Saturday
night, and the world is still, and it's only
the erring who find things ill; there is
sweet content and a sweet night's rest,
where a good heartbeats in a brave man's
breast.���Walt Mason.
All aboard for Nicola !
Throw away the hammer, and
boost.
The board of trade should do a
good work for Merritt and district.
Every citizen should take a live
interest iu his town and boost for
her everlasting progress.
"Teach the boys to spare the
birds," is the heading of a leading
editorial in a Toronto daily.
It is the easiest thing in the
world to criticise. Criticism is a
good thing, too, when bigotry is
eliminated.
The editor of the Princeton Star
discovered he had saved $100 without pinching himself. Then he
pinched himself���and awoke.
What with railroad wrecks, train
hold-ups and black-hand scares, the
west is surely going back to the
"wild and woolly" days again.
One hears quite a number of
people sympathizing the train robbers and hoping these dangerous
characters may evade justice. This
is a most unhealthy public
sentiment.
When the welfare of a community is at stake the personal feelings
of an individual cannot be considered ; and if the individual were wise
he would go 'way back and make
a noise like a clam.
John Houston, the pioneer newspaper man of Prince  Rupert,   has
