a little over a year ago, Mr. Mclntyre
has always been an ardent supporter of
any enterprise for the welfare of the
coal metropolis. By straightforward

host of friends, both in a business and
social way, who will join the Herald in
wishing him every success in his new
venture.

Billiard Mateh
The English billiard contest between

a good margin. This is how it happened:

Appreciates The Herald
H. Murk, of Penticton, in renewing
his subscription for the Herald, writes:
"I am very much pleased with the
Herald, which has shown a great improvement lately and must be doing a
good work for your locality. I hope
you will keep up the same style of
writing."
LOCAL NEWS
This is payday at the collieries.
Watch the coal metropolis grow !
Mrs. McGregor is a visitor to Nicola
today.
A young snow storm blew in from Nic
ola way today.
Mrs. B. Bewley, of Lower Nicola, is
visiting in town today.
Tom Carnow,1 of Spences Bridge, was
a visitor to Merritt on Friday.
John and Ed. Lof tus will shortly erect
a dwelling on Quiichena avenue.
A. Kallin is grading his lot on Voght
street and will shortly erect a dwelling.
Mr. Marshall, late of the Similkameen, will erect a dwelling on Quiichena
avenue.
Mr. Warren, late of Spences Bridge,
is about to build a house on Garcia
avenue.
From present indications at least one
hundred buildings will be erected in
Merritt this season.
B P. Little, of the Nicola Valley
Development Co., arrived in Merritt
from Vancouver today.
Misses Pearl Mclnnes and Bertha
Woodward, of Lower Nicola, are up for
the concert and dance tonight.
Jas. Williamson, late mixologist at
the Coldwater has left to do improvement work on his gopher ranch at
Spences Bridge.
Dr. Curtin has moved from Nicola to
Merritt and is occupying the residence
recently purchased by Dr. Tutill from
E. V. Brooks.   Welcome, doctor.
A young man named Weir, while cutting wood for Jas. Pooley Wednesday,
had his foot severely cut, and was
brought from Nicola to Dr. TutilPs
hospital.
A drug man was in town recently
sizing up the situation, but wanted a
bonus to start in business. The opening
here is too good for any hand-out inducements.
Merritt is badly in need of an office
building. Several business people are
anxious to start up in the coal metropolis, but their inability to secure office
room is the great drawback.
Two steers, which were evidently
frozen during the cold snap last winter,
lying in the bush a short distance from
the Voght street railway crossing,
should be buiied or burned.
At the miners' examination last
week, two candidates wrote for first-
class papers, four for second class and
eight for third class. Results will be
known shortly.
G. B. Armstrong has received during
the past week a carload of coal oil, a
carload of doors, windows and shingles
and a carload of brick. A carload of
lath will arrive in a few days. We can
deliver anything you require on the
shortest notice.
The best game of football of the season was that played between Merritt
and Middlesboro Saturday evening on
the former's grounds. Both teams
showed great improvement and the contest was well worth seeing. The result
was a draw, each team scoring one
goal.
Road Improvements
The government road gang is expected to arrive in Merritt shortly. They
will probably do work along the road
from Spences Bridge on their way into
the valley and are expected to remain
in the district all summer.
There is a lot of road work required
here at present and the road gang has
our permission to get busy just as soon
as possible.
PREMIER  McBRIDE
MAT OPEN OUR CELEBRATION ON
VICTORIA  DAY
Everything Working Smooth For the
Biggest   Demonstration   in   the
History of the Valley���The
Racetrack Selected
Matters in connection with the Victoria day celebration on May 24 and 25
are now well in hand. The various
committees are working hard and good
reports from all are expected to be
handed in at the next meeting of the
Merritt Athletic club
The business of handling the celebration is being carefully systematized and
nothing will be left undone to make this
year's blow-out one to be remembered
by the large crowd that is bound to be
here for our two days of rare sport.
It is quite possible that Premier McBride may honor the coal metropolis
with his presence an < he 24th. He has
already been communicated with and a
definite reply is expected at any time.
A number of Vancouver people, headed
by J. P. McConnell ("Bruce" of the
Saturday Sunset), who is well known in
the valley, are anxious to visit Merritt
and the big coal mines on our celebration days. It is likely that a special
train will come from the coast, and if
so "Premier Dick" will very probably
be the most notable passenger.
The finance committee is hard at work
on the lists, and it is to be hoped every
citizen will display his loyalty to the
good cause of Merritt's best interests
by donating whatever he can afford. A
celebration such as we are going to have
this year costs real money and real
work, but the outlay will be as nothing
compared with the big advertisement it
will be for this town and district. The
subscription list is headed by Wm. Mclntyre and Geo. E. Hygh, our two popular hotel men, with donations of $100
each.
As will be seen by the advertisement
on the following page, tenders will be
received till May 1st for refreshment
privileges.
A half-mile race course has been mapped out and will be put in good shape
at once.
The M. A. C. expects the co-operation
of every citizen. What is beneficial to
Merritt as a town is benefiitting every
individual citizen, and a rousing celebration, patronized by hundreds of visitors, is one of the most beneficial things
we know of for any growing town, with
inducements to offer.
Get in and boost with a will!
Railway Commissioners Aot
Persistent complaints have been made
for many months to the Railway Commission, in connection with defective
fencing or non-fencing by railway companies of their right-of-way, and that
the law regarding cattle guards is not
complied with. As a result of these
complaints the Commission has issued
an order, directing all railway companies to erect and maintain, within a
year, fences of medium height, with
swing gates at farm crossings, cattle
guards on each side of highways, and
at every rail level crossing. It is ordered that within a year all railways
shall construct and maintain suitable
and proper highway crossings with a
20-foot road surface on concession and
main roads and 16-foot road on side and
bush roads.

Easter services were conducted in the
churches and appropriate sermons
given. At the Methodist service Dr.

A farewell banquet was tendered Dr.
Curtin Tuesday evening, at which a
large number of citizens were present
and a most enjoyable time was spent.
The genial doctor, who is leaving for

Hon. Thos. Taylor, Minister of Public
Works, has commenced a tour of inspection of the various public works now
going on in the province. Mr. Taylor,
who is the member from Revelstoke,
will visit Merritt and the Nicola valley
in connection with his tour. The date
is not yet known, but when he arrives
in the Nicola country the genial "Tom"
will be warmly welcomed by many old
friends.
Basket Social and Dance
Know what a basket social means,
don't you? No? Well, ask your sweetheart or your grandmother���they know;
and then be at Menzies' hall Monday
night next to get properly wised up and
have the time of your life. Merritt
Loyal Orange Lodge is giving one of
these happy events on the evening of
the 19th, with a dance to follow. No
admission fee will be charged. You
just bid in a basket, which enlightens
you as to which good looking lady you
will have the pleasure of escorting to
supper. No mistake about this, for
they all look good in Merritt. For a
jolly-oily time you must register at the
basket social and dance Monday
evening.
Manager Strickland Will Have Charge
of Both  Branches,  With  A.  C.
Oourlay as Sub-agent Here
in Herald Building
Merritt is to have a bank of her very
own at last. Through the enterprise of
A. W. Strickland, manager of the
Bank of Montreal at Nicola, in getting
the ear of the big fellows in the east, a
branch is to be opened up here on or
about Tuesday, the 20th inst. Much of
the material is already here and a big
five-ton safe is expected to arrive on
Monday.
Temporary quarters have been secured in the front portion of the Herald
building, and in a few months' time a
handsome new building will be erected
for the branch.
Mr. Strickland will be manager of
both the Merritt and Nicola branches,
with A. C. Gourlay, of Nicola as sub-
agent here for the present. Mr. Lee,
of Rossland, will fill the vacancy at
Nicola.
Merritt has reason to congratulate
herself on securing a branch of the
strongest financial institution in Canada
for her bank. The Bank of Montreal,
with its capital of $15,000,000 and rest
fund of $12,000,000, neeus no uuosting.
Crows Nest Strike
Just before going to press the Herald
received a despatch from T. C. Brookes
regarding the strike situation on the
Crows Nest. He adys that District
President Sherman's action has been
endorsed by the international union, and
that the coal miners of the Crows Nest
are standing solid. Board member
Morgan, local president Evans and Mr.
Brookes are at Hosmer opening up negotiations with Western Coal Operators' association. A few minor points
are at issue, but an early settlement is
expected.
Siwashes in Court
It was a motley bunch of "first citizens" who faced Magistrate Cleasby at
Coutlee on Tuesday, being gathered in
by Constable Clark. The following Siwashes hit up the black bottle too freely
and got upon the warpath among themselves: Cultus Charley, Old Jackson,
John Swakum, Eddie Harry and Spoak.
They were fined $10 and costs each.
Three klootchmen, Ellen, Muzika and
Annie, were mixed up in the same
bunch, but as the evidence was not so
strong against them they were let off
with court costs.
Sale of Prince Rupert Lots
Prince Rupert town lots will be offered for sale by public auction between
May 25th and 29th, in Vancouver. The
agreement between the government and
the G.T.P. provides that each shall put
between 1000 and 1200 lots on the market at this sale. While the sale will be
by public auction, what the sellers consider a reasonable reserve price will be
placed on every lot.
Correction
J. Thompson, vicar of St. John the
Baptist church, Nicola, writes us as
follows:
"May I correct statement re first
baptism at Middlesboro? The first baptism there was the infant daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. R. W. W. Reid on July
26, 1908, at which I officiated."
The government telephone line between Nicola and Summerland is being
repaired.

Subscription, in Advance. $2 a Year
Merritt, B. C, April 16, 1909.
REVERSAL OF  LAW
Stockmen and ranchers of Nicola
valley will read with interest the
edict of the railway commissioners
re compelling railway companies to
maintain proper fences, cattle
guards, etc., as published on the
first page of this issue. The pres
ent condition of affairs, especially
ou branch lines, is bad in the ex
treme.
There is another phase of the
situation as existing between the
railway corporation and the farmer
that also needs fixing and needs it
badly. As it stands at present, a
farmer who has a steer killed on
the railway track is practically up
against a stone wall when he asks
for just damages. He has to
prove how the steer gained access to
the company's property, which is
often a difficult thing to do, as
frequently the poor farmer has not
sufficient family or hired help to
keep tab day and night on each individual head of his stock. To
fight a corporation along these
lines would entail a small fortune
and no end of lost time. It can
hardly be tenable that Mr. Farmer
would take a couple of three-year-
olds under his arms and place them
ou a railway track in order to get
into a squabble with the ' 'bloated
capitalists" of the P. C. R. or any
other road ; consequently, the order of law in such cases should be
reversed. The railway company
should be made to prove that they
did not have open or useless fences,
and cattle guards that a steer with
any sense of humor would laugh
at.
Legislation to give the public a
square deal with railway corporations is as badly needed in Canada
as anywhere, and we trust the
commissioners will stand pat in the
stand just taken by making the
companies toe the scratch to a hair.
faith as loyal Canadians. This is
the class of immigrants that will
help to make Canada the greatest
of nations. We have had enough
experience with the scum of Europe
and Asia, thank you. Hail the
American settler.

THE INVADING  HOST
They are invading Canadian territory by hundreds and thousands
every week! Not the Fenians,
nor the Flying Boilers ; but intelligent, active, clear-headed American
settlers who mean business.
Wealth is pouring over the border into Canada from the United
States at the rate of nearly a million
per week, according to the estimates of those who are in touch
with the immigration movement.
The influx is exceptionally large
and the train service is working
overtime to handle the crowds.
Special settlers' trains, with large
numbers of cars loaded with effects,
are also being operated. It is estimated that between 75,000 and
100,000 Americans will come in
this season, taking up between 20,-
000 and 25,000 homesteads. At
several points in Saskatchewan and
Alberta the rush has been so great
that the government has arranged
to supply large furnished tents.
No one but a rabid alarmist will
view this "invasion" as a menace.
History shows us that American
settlers make good Canadians.
They liice our laws and our style;
they like our schools ; they like
the opportunities offered them, and
they bring their children up in this

arouses so much enthusiasm as the dog
race, which is promoted by the Nome
Kennel Club. The official time of
last year's race was 119 hours and 15
minutes.
There were 14 teams in the race. The
start was made in a blizzard, and the
temperature ranged from 10 to 20 degrees below zero.
Held Her Till Recess
The other morning in a town close to
Merritt a boy named Johnny started to
school somewhat late and to save time
cut across lots. Coming to a barbed-
wire fence he gently threw his books
over and then proceeded to crawl between the wires. In doing so one of the
barbs caught the caboose of his pants
and caused a rip clear up to the waistband. Johnny found a solitary, pin in
his coat and closing the rent as well as
possible, went on his way,- arriving at
the schoolhouse just after school had
taken up. As he entered the door the
busy teacher said: "Johnny, I see
you're 'little behind." "I know it,"
replied Johnny; "but if I had another
pin you wouldn't" And that held her
till recess.

NOTIOE  TO  CREDITORS
Bright Outlook
Indications point to a large influx of
settlers into Kamloops and Nicola districts during the ensuing year. Negotiations are already under way for the
transfer of several large ranching properties and & large share of the fruit
lands will be taken up.
Several men with capital have already
been here from the prairie provinces
and western states and have inspected
the local situation and they are most
favorably impressed. A number of
them have already invested money.
Boys and Tobacco
Boys under 16 years of age are expected to know and remember that
there is a law in Canada that forbids
them to smoke cigarettes or to use
tobacco in any form. The law has not
been long in force, and many do not
realize it.
The law is a dominion act, and a
distress warrant may be issued to recover the fine. This could be done
if it was deemed inadvisable to send
a person to jail for the offence mentioned.
Editor Summoned For Contempt
W. S. Stanley, editor of the Fernie
District Ledger, must appear before a
court in Vancouver on April 19th to
show why he should not be committed
on the charge of contempt of court in
connection with certain statements alleged to have been made by him or
under his authority regarding his honor,
Judge P. E. Wilson, county judge of
the district of East ^ootenay, and certain alleged reflections upon the conduct of justice generally in that
district.
St. Yves vs. Shrubb
Henri St. Yvec, the French distance
runner who sprung into fame by winning the recent professional Marathon
in New York, has accepted an offer for
a match race with Alfred Shrubb, the
Englishman, at Buffalo on May 1st. A
purse of $5000 has been hung up for a
fifteen-mile match.

Physical Drill in Sohools
The house at Ottawa has unanimously
passed a motion, thanking Lord Strathcona for a gift of $250,000 or $10,000
annually to encourage physical and military drill in the public schools of the*
Dominion. The offer was contained in
a letter which Sir Frederick Borden
read to the house amidst applause.
Lord Strathcona said in his letter that
he was anxious to take part in the good
work of training the youths of Canada,
and the first duty of a free citizen was
to be able to defend his country in the
hour of need. He recommended that
the fund first be used in the interest
of the children in institutions which are
maintained entirely out of public funds.
Both sexes are to participate in the
benefits of the trust.
A woman has the same ambition to
get into society that a man has to get
into a political office.
