RELIEF OF MINERS
$2 a Year.
SUPPLIES ARE!  BBINO DEALT OUT
TO STRIKERS
The Situation Remains The Same in
the Trouble Between Miners and
Operators ��� Grows Nest
Strike Continues
The situation at the Middlesboro
mines remains practically the same.
T. C. Brooke, the district representative of the U. M. W. of A., who left
for Fernie last Friday for the purpose
of securing relief funds for the striking
miners is expected back on today's
(Friday) train.
The president of the local union, R.
D. McDonald, has received word from
Mr. Brooke that relief funds have been
granted and that the international
officials have endorsed the action of the
local union in the course they havei
pursued. |
An advance order for the procuring
of relief supplies was received on Wednesday's mail and the first distribution
took place that afternoon.
It was reported that a large body of
non-union miners' were to be brought
into the camp to start up operations at
the mines this week, but so far as we
can learn none have appeared as yet.
As regards the settlement of the
strike nothing definite can be said at
present writing.
LATER
It is understood that quite a
number of the men in the
camp have signed on with the
company to go to work Friday
morning, but as the Herald is
being published Thursday afternoon nothing more definite can
be said until work is actually
started.
A Big Deal
A deal involving two hundred and
fifty thousand dollars was put through
the other day by which C. D. McRae of
Calgary, transferred his 63 timber
limits up the North Thompson' river to
a Toronto syndicate.
The limits, which covers 40,320 acres,
are situated about 165 miles up the
river and represent over two billion feet
of merchantable timber. Cruisers are
now going through the limits and will
complete their investigations in a few
days.

Uoyote,  Big-Horned  Owl  and  Golden
Eagle Bounty Regulations
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that,
from the first day of May, 1909, a bounty
of three dollars ($3) will be paid on
every coyote killed within the Province,
on a certificate of a Justice of the Peace
that such animal was killed by the person claiming the bounty, and that the
skin   of   such animal   was   produced to
him.    The Government Agent, or  other ��� ��� n,o ���������,��� ,���   , ....
official paying the bounty, shall punch" I 1 7 ' f WayS l0��ked forward to

Joseph Guichon will build a large new

Cooper has the contract for the foundation.
A meeting of the Merritt Athletic
club was held Tuesday evening
with the president, G. B. Armstrong, in the chair.
A wind-up of affairs in connection with the Victoria day celebration was the main item of business.
All accounts were ordered paid and
a lot of detad work  cleaned  up.
The members were all satisfied that
the celebration was a decided success and not a complaint was laid.
A dance will be held in the pavilion on Friday evening, June 11th.
All   arrangements   in   connection
with the dance  were left in the
hands of J. P. Boyd.    This is sufficient guarantee that the affair will
be a success iu every way.    Every
lady in attendance has a chance to
get a gold locket and chain.    Coupons will be given out at the door
land the lucky number takes the
jewelry.
The executive committee was
instructed to go ahead with arrangements for the completion of the
club building, for which an excellent foundation has already been
laid. The club will give dances
and other entertainments at intervals for the enjoyment of the public. Some excellent minstrel timber exists in Merritt and a show of
this particular talent will likely be
given shortly.
A meeting of the executive will
be held in Herald hall Saturday
evening when a full attendance of
this body is requested, as several
matters of vital importance for the
welfare of the club will be dis-
cusssed.
At Tuesday evening's meeting
I. Eastwood and J. P. Boyd were
voted members of the executive.

1008 Mineral Production
A preliminary report on the mineral
production of Canada in 1908 has just
been prepared by the Department of
Mines, and as compared with the revised figures of 1907 shows an increase
of half a million dollars in value of
output.   The report says:
A preliminary review of the mineral
production in Canada in 1908 shows a
total mineral output valued at slightly
over 87 million dollars, as compared
with a little less than 87 million dollars
On Friday afternoon last W. Smith,
employed at McArthur & Harper's
ranch, on Kamloops lake, discovered
the body of a man floating in the lake
about a mile east of Copper creek. He
at once sent word to Provincial Constable Fernie, who despatched 0. S.
Batchelor to take charge of the body.
Dr. Clarke, coroner, was also notified
and after having viewed the remains
decided not to hold an inquest. The
body was temporarily buried, pending
developments.
The body, according to a description
supplied by the police, is that of a man
of from 5 feet 9 inches to 6 feet in
height, weight about 175 pounds; round
face, short neck; square shoulders.
Shirt, 18 collar; Belt, about 36 inches.
Teeth dropped out. Had on heavy wool
underclothes, a pink striped linen shirt,
b blue striped linen shirt, black cloth
vest and pants. Nackscarf, plaid grey
and black squares.
From the condition of the body it is
evident it had been in the water for
several months. There were no papers
or marks found on the clothing to give
any clue to identification.

metal-mining industries will be better
realized when it is stated that had copper, silver, lead and nickel maintained
as high average in 1908 as in 1907, their
total production in Canada in 1908
would have been worth over 8 million
dollars more to the producers than was
actually the case.

This reminds the Herald of a portion
of Bancroft's history of British Columbia in which is stated that up in the

birth to twins that were still born became a foster mother to a young fawn,

Canadian Mining Institute
There was only a small attendance at
the meeting of western branch of the
Canadian Mining Institute, held in
Coleman on Tuesday, May 25, a number
of the members resident in the district
having had to be at Macleod, at the
meetings of the board of conciliation
and investigation, which was in session
there on the same day, says the Coleman Miner.
The chairman, Thomas? Kiddie, was
unavoidably absent on account of his
duties on the conciliation board meetings at Merritt and Vancouver. Several
papers on coal mining were read to the
meeting.

Death of "Ted " Raspberry
The Herald this week regrets to
chronicle the death of Edward P.
Raspberry, who passed over the divide
at Dr. TutilPs hospital at 1 o'clock last
Monday morning. He had been brought
down from his ranch near Quiichena
about two weeks ago suffering from
typhoid-pneumonia.
The remains were taken to Lytton
Tuesday afternoon, and were accompanied by the deceased's widow, mother,
sister and brothers, besides a few other
close friends. The funeral took place
on Wednesday morning.
The late Mr. Raspberry, who was 29
years of age, came to this country with
his parents 21 years ago from Harpley in
the north of England, and has been in
Nicola valley for the past 15 years.
About two years ago he was married
to Miss Mary Swartz, of Lillooet.
Much sympathy is expressed throughout the valley for the bereaved widow
and relatives.

Strike at End
The coal miners strike in Southern
Alberta and British Columbia has been
settled by the board of conciliation, appointed by the government, assisted by
the board members of the United Mine
Workers of America. The miners
yield on the open shop contention and
the mine operators yield as to the discrimination against union men. THE  NICOLA HERALD

every last deadbeat was in his gravestone dead. His mind then wandered
far away to the time when he should

fields of paradise and sail o'er Jaspar

thought then how he'd look across the
great gulf dark and drear, that'll yawn
between his happy soul and those

would call, and in agony they would
caper, he'd shout to them: "Just
