Our MEMBER-ELECT
Yale Cariboo and Kootenay
Pile up Votes.
Martin Burr oil's and  A. S. Goodeve's
Majorities Exceed Expectations���
Nicola Celebrates by Torchlight Procession.
The election of Martin Burrell as Yale-Cariboo's member
for the House of Commons
was received with much enthusiasm throughout Nicola Val
ley. At almost every polling
place he had a majority and he
carried by about 43 votes over
Duncan Ross. At Nicola when
the returns announced that Mr.
Burrell was over 700 ahead, a
torchlight procession was formed and with all kinds of musical instrument enthusiasticCon
servatives paraded the town.
At Merritt, Coutlee, Middlesboro and Lower Nicola supporters of Martin Burrell were
jubilant at their success and a
quiet demonstration was made.
The results of the Yale-Cariboo and Kootenay districts are
given below :
Kootenay ��� Goodeve, Cons., 3,023;
Curtis, Lib., 2,114; Davidson, Socialist,
1,333.
Yale-Cariboo-Burrell, Cons., 2,607;
Ross, Lib., 1,845; Bunting, Socialist,
394.
Goodeve's election was conceded by
the Liberals towards the close of the
campaign, but the majority is a surprise
to even the Conservatives. In Yale-
Cariboo the Conservatives were confident, while the Liberals expected a
good majority. Duncan Ross' defeat
by so large a majority is a surprise to
both parties. The election passed off
quietly in both ridings.
strongly  for principle as against expediency.
It has not been a personal victory but
I may be pardoned for thanking most
deeply the many friends who worked
so loyally and unselfishly for me during
the campaign.
To the work of the officers and members of the various Conservative Associations through Yale-Cariboo the
results of the 12th are chiefly due, but
I also recognizo that in this election I
owe not a little to those despite party
ties gave me their support.
It is impossible for me to answer
personally all those who have so kindly
written their congratulations, and I
trust they will be good enough to let
me tell them that I deeply value their
good wishes and to assure them that if
I fail in the performance of my duty
as their member it will not be for the
want of trying earnestly to do that
duty both in the letter and the spirit,
I am, Sir, Yours very truly,

Grand Forks, B.C., Nov. 16th, 1908.
Editor Nicola Herald,
Dear Sir;
Would  you   permit   me
through the columns   of your paper to
thank the many  friends through your
district who gave me such a splendid
support in the recent campaign.
I realize that the questions of Japanese immigration and Better Terms were
responsible for the strong endorsation
of the Conservative side, and I also
realize that throughout the greater
fruit growing districts I received much
assistance from those who considered
that the horticultural interests of British Columbia had not had sufficient
attention in the House of Commons.
The task of defeating a government
candidate in the face of persistent appeals to support; those who had control
of the national purse strings was not
easy. It is intensely gratifying, therefore, to find that the majority of
the  people  expressed   themselves  so
Sir Henry Joly Dead.

Tuesday morning.
Brodeur Will Not Resign
Hon. L. P. Brodeur will net resign

the annual inspection of the St. Lawrence channel.
A Grave Charge.
Returning Officer J. H. Ingram was
sent up for trial at the next court of
competent jurisdiction Tuesday morning
for changing the voters' list at poll 3 in
Brandon during the recent dominion
election. R. Purdon, deputy returning
officer, was the only witness examined.
He stated that Ingram had substituted
the name of Nichols for that of Mc-
Culloch.
Cheats Callows.
Morris Haas, the former convict, who
on Friday attempted to assassinate
Francis J. Heney, who is conducting
the graft prosecutions in San Francisco,
committed suicide on Saturday night in
his cell in the county jail by shooting
himself through the head with a small
Derringer revolver.
Haas ended his life while four guards
detailed to prevent just such a move
stood within three feet of him. The
weapon with which the would-be assassin shot himself he had secreted in the
top of oneof his gaiter shoes. He fired
the shot while lying in his cot and while
covered with the blankets.
Train Buns Over Bank Into the Fraser
River.���Two Lives Lost.���Prof.
Charles P. Mires
is Dead.
As a result of a washout three-quarters of a mile west of Lytton, the locomotive drawing a westbound freight
train Monday night plunged down the
embankment, steep at that point, into
the Fraser river, many feet below,
causing the death of Engineer George
Brown, and Fireman Peter Ryder.
The washout, caused by heavy rains,
was a large one, sixty feet long and
fifty feet deep. Passenger train No. 96
had passed over the spot only a very
short time before the freight reached
it, the two trains crossing at Lytton.
The engine crew, consisting of Engineer George Brown and Fireman Peter
Ryder, together with Brakeman Clarence Anderson, went down with the
wreck, and it is reported chat the locomotive rolled into the river, a number
of cars being badly smashed up.
Fireman Ryder was taken out of the
mass of wreckage alive, but succumbed
to his injuries almost immediately.
Brakeman Anderson was badly scalded
and severely injured and was at once
removed to the Mission hospital at
Lytton, where he lies in a very serious
condition.
The fate of Engineer Brown was not
known at first, and it was supposed that
he had gone into the river with the engine. Chris Bourne, the conductor in
charge of the train, spent some time
searching for the missing man, whose
body was ultimately found on the river
bank. The other members of the train
crew escaped unhurt.
George Brown had served a lengthy
period in the employ of the C.P.R. here
and was highly respected. He was the
victim of a serious accident some years
ago at the foot of Notch Hill, where his
train collided with a runaway train descending the hill. He suffered severe
injuries at that time. It is said that
for some days past he has dreaded going
out, apparently having a premonition
of impending disaster. He leaves a
widow and three little children to mourn
his loss. He spent some weeks the
past summer in the Nicola branch on
the work train.
Peter Ryder was a popular young
man and unmarried, his family residing
at Vancouver.
Robert Scott of Vancouver formerly of
Rockford was married last week at
Vancouver.
A dance and social under the auspices

John Alway an old time resident os
Yale died there last week. He had
been a resident of Yale for 48 years.
Chinese Emporer Doad.
Wade Gardner, agent of the Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corporation
at New York received a cablegram from
Pekin Friday, stating that the Chinese
Emporer died that morning. There
were no details. It is stated that the
situation throughout the empire is quiet
and it is thought that the revolutionists
will be suppressed if they attempt to
take advantage of the emporer's death
to make a demonstration against the
reigning dynasty.

Death of Prof. Mires.
F. A. Howse of Nicola last week received a letter from G. S. Mires, of
Hanford Cal., notifying him of the
death of Prof. Charles F. Mires, the
well known horse breaker.
The letter reads as follows: "My
mother died on October 30th at 7.45
p.m., and before 6 o'clock next morning my brother, Charles F. Mires, went
to a tree some distance from the house
and shot himself with my 44 calibre revolver, he died at 8.50 a. m., and never
spoke after the shooting. We buried
both in the same grave. Kindly notify
his friends in your section."
"Charlie" Mires was well known
throughout the upper country and was
considered one of the best horse tamers
in tho country and his many friends and
acquaintances will be sorry to hear of
his sad end.
May  Mean  Start  of Construction   on
This Road Next Year.    Nothing
Known at Present which way
Company  will Build.
Monday's train brought in
R. Marpole, general executive
assistant of the C.PR., H;. J.
Cambie, consulting engineer
and H. E. Carry, the engineer
who directed the survey work
from Merritt last summer up the
Coldwater section to Nicola.
Next morning by special stage
the party left for Princeton and
from there they will drive over
the entire distance to Penticton
near the foot of Okanagan lake.
The trip will occupy about one
week's time.
The inspection of the route
is looked upon in some quarters as being significant of a
possible start of construction
on this line during the coming
year. The exact route of the
line is of course a secret, two
surveys having been made, the
first up Quiichena creek and
this year one being made up
the Coldwater, and this trip of
the officials is no doubt to decide which way the railway line
will be built. At the present
time the public know nothing
which way the company intend
to build.
B. O. Fruit Wins.
News has been received by R. M.
Palmer who is in charge of British Columbia fruit in England, that this province carried off the gold medal at Bath
