ITEMS OF INTEREST
SEVEN KILLED IN A COLLISION ON
THB C. P. R.
Meets Death Scaling Peaks.���The Bill
to Prohibit Opium Passed.���York
Loan Dividend.���Nelson and
Sans to Mix Again.
Locomotive No. 702, running light
from Medicine Hat to Coleridge to take
the Spokane flier east to Moosejaw, had
a head-on collision just east of the Medicine Hat yards, with the morning passenger train off the Crow, which was
running two hours late, at 8.20 Friday
morning.
The following were instantly killed:
Jas. Nicholson, engineer; Howard Gray,
fireman; Baggageman Archambault;
James Shaw and Duncan McEachern,
passengers, all of Medicine Hat. Engineer Towey and Conductor Malette
died later.
Leonard Black, brakeman and Vicars,
express messenger, were seriously injured. Seven passengers were taken to
the hospital.
The light engine was driven back off
the front. trucks, and the boiler head
torn off. The locomotive of the Crow
train partially telescoped the express
car, which, in turn, telescoped the mail
and baggage car and tourist, and all
three cars and engine rolled into the
ditch.
Will Pay Forty Per Cent.
The following statement by the York
Loan liquidator will be of interest to
those in this locality who were unfortunate enough to entrust their savings
with the crooked officials of this now
defunct company:
"The liquidator of the York County
Loan & Savings Company . . . has
been exceedingly successful in getting
in a large amount of its assets, and it
is confidently expected that instead of
the 25 per cent, dividend, which was at
first anticipated as a maximum, the
liquidator will be able to pay at least
40 per cent., but as to the dividend the
liquidator expects to be in a position to
make a further announcement within a
short time."
Bill Against Opium.
At last a bill has been introduced at
Ottawa to prqhibit the importation and
manufacture of opium for other than
medicinal purposes.
A law of this kind should have been
enacted years ago. Wherever two or
three Chinese shacks are gathered together an opium den is in the midst.
This applies to almost every town in
Bri tish Columbia, and the habit of hitting
the pipe is not confined alone to the almond-eyed Oriental. The general public
would be shocked to learn of the number of white men���and, sad to relate,
white women���in this province who are
victims of the deadly "long draw."
A  DOUBLE  DROWNING
Lady Mountain Climber Killed.
Miss Helen H. Hatch, of Lethbridge,
who was a member of the Alpine Club
now camping at Rogers Pass, lost her
life on Thursday while attempting to
cross a gulch on one of the mountains
in that region. She fell among some
loose boulders and was carried forcibly
down to her death.
To Fight Again.
Battling Nelson and Joe Gans have
��� signed articles for a finish fight to take
> .place at Ely, Nev., on Labor Day, September 7th; weight, 133 pounds at the
ringside. The men agree to split the
$30,000 purse hung up by Tex. Rickard;
Nelson $20,000, Gans $10,000.
Young Bride and Companion Victims
of Vancouver Fatality.
A lamentable double drowning fatality occurred at Vancouver on Monday
morning, when Mrs. S. F. Shepard of
Calgary, aged 18, and her girl friend,
Miss Florian Anderson of Vancouver,
aged 17, lost their lives while bathing
at English Bay beach by getting into a
deep hole in the sand caused by dredging operations.
The young ladies were separated from
the other bathers. Two boys saw their
predicament and attempted a rescue,
but the women had lost all presence of
mind and fought so frantically that the
boys soon become exhausted, and before
other help could arrive the unfortunate
victims had sunk for the fatal third time.
A little girl aged seven got into the
same hole but was rescued by a young
medical student named Reed after a
ha"rd struggle.
The civic authorities are censured for
not having danger signs posted up.
Mrs. Shepard, whose maiden name
was Jean Patterson, was the wife of a
Calgary real estate man, and was on her
honeymoon trip. The husband was up
town at the time of the fatality and was
almost prostrated when he heard the
sad news.
Both bodies were recovered Tuesday
by dragging the bay.

Baok to the Land of Plenty.
Gov. Norris of Montana has addressed
a letter to the commissioner of Indian
affairs at Ottawa relative to the deportation of a large band of Cree Indians,
who, while Canadian charges, have for
years been roaming throughout that
state. The Indians participated in the
Reil rebellion and with its suppression
went to Montana. The state department arranged with Canada for their return but soon afterwards, dissatisfied
with conditions in the north, they returned to that state and are now at the
point of starvation, hence the letter to
learn if the original allotments are still
available. The Indians are anxious to
comeback to the land of the big feed.
Grand Forks Gutted by Fire.
Early last Friday morning fire started
in a vacant building at Grand Forks
from unknown causes and the chief
buildings in three blocks went up in
smoke. The loss to the smelter city will
be in the vicinity of $300,000. Six hotels
were included in the list of buildings
destroyed, only two remaining ��� the
Granby and the Winnipeg.

Boarding House at Diamond'Vale Has
Been Closed.���Several Men Have
Been Put on Shaft Work
At the Prospect.
In the report given in last week's
issue of The Nicola Herald of the transfer of the Diamond Vale Coal & Iron
Mines property to the Diamond Vale
Colleries, Ltd., mention was made that
C. H. Mowat, who acted for the Diamond Vale Colleries, was a member of
Macdonald, Marpole Co., Ltd., the coal
and commission merchants of Vancouver. It seem, however, that our information was somewhat incorrect. Mr.
Mowat has not been connected with the
above firm for the past four years, but
is a partner in the firm of chartered accountants at Vancouver known as Cre-
han, Mowat & Co.
We are in receipt of a communication
from C. M. Marpole, president of Macdonald, Marpole Co., Ltd., stating that
his firm is in no way interested in the
Diamond Vale property.
The boarding house at Diamond Vale
was closed the first of the week, pending developments on the part of the new
company.
It is not expected work will be resumed at the colleries until the end of the
present month, although several men
have just been started to work on the
shaft of the prospect recently opened
up near the railwav track about one mile
east of the main workings.
R. P. Little, the superintendent of the
old company, has about completed the
task of winding up its affairs here and
the Diamond Vale Coal & Iron Mines
will shortly vacate the offices to make
room for the new concern.
High School Examinations.
The following are the successful candidates from Nicola valley at the recent
high school examinations. At Nicola
seven scholars went up for examination
and four passed: Margaret Murray 634,
Agnes Marquart 623, John Hunter 593
and Oberlin Murray 584. At Lower
Nicola one pupil tried and was successful, being Miss Starrett.
Stumping Powder For Clearing.
The arrangements made by the government for supplying stumping powder
for land clearing purposes, are as follows:
A carload is purchased at a time, which
is available for the purposes named, in
lots to suit the purchaser at the rate
of $5.25. per box (f. o. b.) at the works
at Nanaimo or at the magazine at the
Capital.
The C. P. R, agrees to transport this
powder to stations along the line of railway, for members of Farmers' Institutes
in lots of 6,000 pounds or over, at single
first-class rates, and in lesser quantities
at double first-class. To all points not
touched by the C. P. Railway purchasers
must make their own remittances for
transportation. Remittances and orders
should be transmitted through the presidents or secretaries of the institutes.

THE MORRISON MURDER
Jas. Jenkins Committed For Trial For
His Horrible Crime.
When the man Jenkins, accused of the
brutal murder of Mrs. Mary Morrison,
at Hazelmere, was asked, after the conclusion of the preliminary trial at New
i Westminster on Monday, if he had anything to say, he replied:
"I don't claim to know any thing about
it."
He had been properly warned and had
been advised that anything he might
say might be used in evidence against
him. He had no counsel, but it was
evident that his fellow prisoners, whether they believed him guilty or not, or
else long experience, had posted him on
what to say, because when it came to
signing the deposition he could only
make his mark.
The prosecution was conducted by Attorney-General Bowser, and the only
two main points brought out in the preliminary were the identification of the
knife vised by the prisoner and the
connecting of the prisoner with the
man seen by several witnesses in the
vicinity.
The eight-year-old daughter of Mrs.
Morrison again picked out Jenkins from
among a number of prisoners as the one
who killed her mother.
Jenkins was formally committed to
stand his trial for murder.

in Yale-Cariboo at the coming Dominion
elections, has been in the valley for
several days, in company with Conservative Organizer Eaton. They have been
getting a line on the political pulse of
the people, and express themselves as
greatly gratified with the way things
are looking up.
Settlers From Idaho Provision at This
Camp En Route to Nechaeo Valley.���A Brief Description of
the New District.
A dozen "prairie schooners" passed
through Merritt early yesterday morning en route for the Nechaeo valley
country. The caravan train stopped at
G. B. Armstrong's emporium to re-provision. It was composed of ten American families from Idaho, who have sold
out their holdings in that state and will
take up homesteads in the vicinity of
Nulki lake, not far from Fort George.
The Nechaeo valley is getting its share
of new settlers these days. It is one
of the districts on the line of the Grand
Trunk Pacific railway where stock-raising and farming can be carried on as a
business. The valley contains over 200, -
000 acres of arable land, which settlers
claim to be very productive. The Nechaeo river flows through the valley. It
is about 300 yards wide and deep enough
for light-draft stern-wheel steamboats.
It flows between high, wooded banks,
contains clear water and an abundance
of fish.
The valley has good drainage to the
creeks and lakes and contains little rough
land. The land has a dense growth of
small poplars, with bunches of small
spruce. There are extensive open meadows and clearing the land is not difficult
or expensive. The climate is described
as being as mild as anywhere in the interior of B. C.
Small grain is sown in April and ripens in August. Fine results are reported. Timothy and clover have been tried
with great success, while wild grasses
grow with great luxuriance.
Wild fruit grows, and where wild
fruit is found the soil and climate may
be considered suitable for growing fruit
in orchards. Wild strawberries, raspberries, saskatoons, high-bush cranberries, huckleberries, chokeberries and
cherries are found in every section of
the valley.
The party which passed through Merritt yesterday have been on the road for
a month, and have about 350 miles to
travel after reaching Ashcroft, where
they take the Cariboo road to Quesnelle, -.
thence over the Yukon telegraph trail
to the valley.
A large number of Anglo-Saxon settlers have gone into the Nechaeo this
year, mainly from the United States.
This is the class of immigration that
should be encouraged and fostered���the
kind that will make Canada a great nation of loyal and intellectual people.
As one of the Idaho party remarked
yesterday: "We are going to settle
permanently in Canada, and have our
children grow up with the prosperity and
freedom of this promising country."

Fine weather graced the Dominion Fair at Calgary, and the exhibition passed off successfully in all
ways. It was attended by immense
crowds on each day, and the exhibits showed the great progress the
West is making. British Columbia
took a prominent place among the
general exhibits and her resources
were well advertised by both governmental and individual exhibits.
Commander Peary has again set
out on an expedition to stake a claim
at the north pole. The cards have
always been stacked heretofore in
this north pole game, and there is
no assurance that the adventurous
explorer will be more successful on
the present trip. Just what commercial or scientific advantage will
be gained when the northermost
iceberg is spotted is not quite clear,
but probably Mr. Peary would die
happy in the knowledge that he has
the ice trust backed off the boards
when it comes to a deal in "frosty"
propositions.
A leading Japanese paper urges
upon the Japanese government to
foster extensive emigration to Canada. The question of Oriental im-
:migratiou is the most important one
before this country at the present
time. That the yellow hordes of
Japan and China are a menace to
our future, commercially and morally, must he recognized by all who
have studied the situation with their
grey matter free from the clogs of
avarice or ignorance. An absolutely closed gate is the only solution
to a problem which is only made a
problem by the cheap-labor corporations, backed up by the perfidy of
grafting politicians. With graft,
bluff and hot air superceded' by
common sense and common interests, our immigration mountain
would speedily be reduced to the
proverbial mole-hill.
William Jennings Bryan, of Nebraska, was nominated for the third
time for the office of President of
the United States by the Democratic national convention at Denver,
Col., last Friday morning after an
all-night session. The result came
amid scenes of frenzied enthusiasm
and the choice of the Nebraska
leader was made unanimous. Mr.
Bryan was born in Salem, 111., in
1860. He opened a law office in
Lincoln, Neb., in 1887, and four
years later was elected to Congress
from First Nebraska district; became editor of the Omaha World-
Herald in 1895; in 1896 he was a
delegate to the Democratic national
convention, wrote famous silver
plank, made notable speech on same
and was nominated for President
but was defeated by McKinley; in
1897 began career as a public lecturer; in 1898 raised volunteer regiment for war with Spain; was again
defeated by McKinley for Presidency in 1900; made extensive tour of
the world in 1896. By sheer force
of his great intellectuality William
J. Bryan establishes a precedent in
becoming presidential nominee the
third time, after two defeats. His
grasp of the situation in the States
is backed by a clear, conscientious
policy that brooks neither fear nor
favor.    Mr. Bryan is in sympathy
with the labor element and the suppression of trusts and graft. He
will hardly be elected in the coming
campaign, but the political atmosphere of the republic to the south
will be the purer by reason of his
open and above-board methods.  ���
