QUILCHENA HOTEL
WAS AUSPICIOUSLY OPENED LAST
FRIDAY NIGHT.
Large and Happy Crowd From All Over
the Valley Meet Mr. and Mrs J.
Gulohon at the Opening of
Their Fine Hotel.
On Friday evening Mr. and Mrs.
Joseph Guichon were the host and
hostess at the opening ceremony of
the new Hotel Quiichena, at Quiichena.
Guests came from far and near to
do honor to them and to/ the very
fine structure the new hotel building.
��� The ball opened about ten o'clock
and dancing kept merrily up until
one o'clock when a sumptuous repast claimed the attention of the
numerous guests. When the tables
were filled M. L. Grimmett, of
Nicola, introduced the host and
hostess in a happy little speech
that did justice to Mr. and Mrs. Guichon and family and to the new
building. Joseph Cuichon, junior,
returned thanks on behalf of his
parents.. During the evening a
number of guests contributed
speeches, all in a happy strain."
Dancing was continued until
about 5 a. m., when a farewell to
the host and hostess and Mr. Hill,
the genial manager, and Mrs. Hill,
the guests left for their .homes, all
satisfied that one of the most pleasant evenings spent in Nicola valley
was at the opening of the Hotel
Quiichena.
The new hotel is probably one of
the finest structures in the interior,
and is well laid out and furnished
with the best, has all modern equipments, and its position facing on
Nicola lake is an ideal one.
Quiichena, with its excellent fishing and shooting, appeals to the
sportsman and tourist, who can find
all that is desired from this beauty
spot of British Columbia to enjoy
an outing.
Mr. Hill, the manager, is a man
of considerable hotel experience and
guests can be assured of the very
best attention.
that the assistant land commissioner
had taken possession of and incorporated into a road connecting the Rock
Creek Osoyoos and the Rock mountain
roads.
The piece of road fenced off had been
j built by one Schiveers with McBridu's
I permission and made connections with
the Rock mountain road which was a
public highway.
The judge held that the land commissioners must gazette such roads before
they can resume possession of property
held under grant from the crown and
incorporate it in such roads.
The case is very important, as the
practice is a very general one over the
province, and one on which, it is understood, no decision has been previously
given.
Clans Knocked Out.
"Battling" Nelson at SanFrancisco
on Saturday won the title of lightweight
champion pugilist of the world from the
man who defeated him at Goldfield, Nevada, almost two years ago. He knocked out Joe Gans in the 17th round, after
a fight as desparate as any that had
ever beeii seen here in years.
Gotch Wins.
Frank Gotch, the heavyweight champion wrestler of the world, won his
match with Dr. Roller at Seattle on July
1st in two straight falls.
Martin In the Ring.
Joseph Martin has announced his intention to enter the federal campaign as
a candidate for Vancouver.

PREMIER  McBRIDE
AND PARTY RECEIVE A ROYAL
WELCOME AT MERRITT. ,
Government Ministers Tendered a Big
Ovation by Enthusiastic Crowd
the   Coal  Metropolis.���
The Addresses.
at
This young camp is entitled to throw
boquets at itself on the pronounced success of its first political demonstration,
held on Monday evening last, when
Premier McBride and party visited the
district. The party was composed of
Hon. Richard McBride, premier and
minister of mines, accompanied by his
private secretary, Lawerence McCrae;
Hon. Dr. Young, provincial secretary
and minister of education, and Hon. F.
J. Fulton, chief commissioner of lands
and works.
The ministers are on a tour of the various districts of the province within the
"railway zone." The itinerary called
for a meeting at Nicola, as well as at
Merritt, on Monday evening, but the inability of Hon. W. J. Bowser, attorney-
general, to be present, together with
the limited time at disposal, unfortunately necessitated a change in the program and only one meeting was possible.
Merritt, being the most central point on
the line, had the privilege of welcoming
the honorable gentlemen.
Officials of the Conservation association met tha ministerial party at Coutlee.
After dinner at the Coutlee hotel, they
were driven to Merritt via Middlesboro,
where they were shown through the
mines and were much impressed with
the development in progress there. The
B. C. Amalgated was also inspected and
it was the- intention to visit Diamond
Vale as well, but press of time precluded this.
When the party arrived at Hyland
hall a genuine surprise was awaiting in
the large number on hand to greet the
cabinet members. The electors had
gathered in such numbers from various
portions of the district that the hall
proved entirely inadequate to accommodate the assemblage, which was most
representive and was graced by the
presence of a number of ladies. The
night being a perfect one, seats were
arranged outside and the meeting proved
a complete success in every way. Chairman Ric. A. Fraser started the oratorical ball rolling by calling on Hon. Dr.
Young.
The provincial secretary in a very able
speech laid particular stress upon the
educational work being done by the
government and outlined several laudable innovations that would shortly be
put into practical use in the schools of
the province. Dr. Young has had charge
of the educational department for several years, und those who follow these
matters must be aware of his zealous
and untiring efforts to make the system
in this province as nearly perfect as can
be, with the least possible burden to the
taxpayer. Even in the most sparsely-
settled districts, if eight or ten pupils
can be gathered a school is instituted.
The free text books which will be placed
in the public schools after the holidays
was the result of careful investigations
on the part of Dr. Young. The doctor
outlined the objects of the provincial
university which will shortly be built;
it will be accessible to all; manual training will be one of of its most salient features, although the fine arts and classics
will not be' slighted; it is the doctor's
ambition that the new university shall
be a model for the rest of the Dominion.
up to date.   Henceforth the Union Jac!
will be flown from all schools, thus stimulating patriotism in the young, with a
knowledge of what the emblem signifies.
Hon. F. J. Fulton, after giving his
many old friends a salute, dwelt briefly
with questions in connection with the
lands and works department. The all-
important subject with agriculturalists
in the dry belt of British Columbia was
that of irrigation. Mr. Fulton has visited Colorado and other places making
minute investigations into the question,
and stated that some radical amendments
to the old, faulty Irrigation Act would
be made at the next session of parliament. The speaker was heartily applauded when he spoke of the immense areas
of fertile lands that were being set aside
for pre-emption by homesteaders, thus
turning down grafting speculators. Encouragement to the settler was the
watchward of the lands department.
Mr. Fulton outlined several pieces of
legislation to be introduced that will be
of great benefit to to the settler and the
prospector, whereby their burdens will
be lightened by governmental co-operation. He spoke of the roads, trails and
bridges, and gave an entirely satisfactory account of his stewardship in this
connection. With 8000 miles of roads
and about the same of trails some idea
of fche work and money necessary to
keep these up could be gained:
When the chairman called upon Hon.
Richard McBride, the ovation tendered
the premier was loud and prolonged, and
evidenced the fact that the people of
Nicola valley are not a whit behind the
electorate of the rest of the province in
appreciative recognition of the merits
of the man who was responsible for lifting the government out of the chaos of
a few years ago and placing it upon the
present sound, progressive foundation.
Mr. McBride was agreeably surprised at
the advancement made in the valley in
all lines of industry. After touching upon experiences in this section in days
agone, and passing some sincere complimentary words to the old-timers and
"pathfinders" who had the confidence
and courage to stay with the country
until now the rewards of their pluck and
industry were being realized, the premier
went on in a masterly speech and dwelt
upon the various vital quesions of the
day as concerns the weal of British Columbia.
He stated that the object of this meeting and the present tour was not to advance the interests of the Conservative
party or to debate politics at all; it was
solely an instructive trip, whereby the
heads of the government wished to get
in touch with the people, become better
acquainted with the needs of the varions
districts and study general conditions
from a non-partisan point of view; it
was a case of "British Columbia first-
politics afterwards." The premier declared it his pride and ambition to have
the cabinet ministers discharge their
various offices conscientiously and with
a business foresight that would not only
win tho approval and confidence of the
province, but would command the admiration of the Dominion at largo. The public funds were being spent by the people
for the people���no partisan favors were
being handed out, and, as Yale district
could verify, no discriminations made in
ridings represented by the opposition.
He went over step by step the changes
wrought since the present administration first went into power, inheriting a
depleted treasury and a most unsettled
condition of affairs. Money had been
radsed by legitimate corporation taxation
instead of bleeding the people ; matters
were gradually straightened out and
public confidence restored; railways had
been built and were being built without
a penny of subsidy or the sacrifice of
provincial lands.    The interests of the

The shut-down at the mines for

No one can dispute that the develop
ment of the province within the past
five years has been almost magical, and
the sincere efforts being put forth by
Mr. McBride and his colleagues to demonstrate that British Columbia is the
banner province of the Dominion should
command the hearty co-operation of
every true patriot west of the Rockies.
Mr. McBride dilated upon points touched by the previous speakers, and the
rounds of hearty applause with which he
was cheered throughout his discourse
were continued with renewed vigor when
he dwelt upon various matters of legislation which would shortly be enacted
for the benefit of the residents at large
���not the least of which was that the
present moderate rate of taxation would
be made even less just as soon as practicable, und that it was the object of the
government to make the natural resources of the province "pay the piper"
until taxation would become a matter
of secondary consideration.
At the conclusion of Mr. M.,Bride's
address the ministers were given a
hearty vote of thanks on motion of H..S.
Cleasby and H. H. Matthews. Three
cheers and a tiger were then tendered
the premier, and the lusty manner in
which one and all, irrespective of party,
responded to the same, proved most emphatically that the Hon. "Dick," (with
the people of Nicola valley at least),
had more than gained that one great,
essential to the successful manipulation"
of governmental affairs���absolute public confidence. THE   NICOLA    HERALD

Merritt, B.C., July 9, 1908.
We read so frequently of Russian
horrors in the tortuous methods
meted out in the prisons, the outright murdering of offenders against
the aristocracy, the inhuman treatment of women and children, et
caetera, that most of us regard these
barbarous conditions with but passive interest. How such things can
exist and the other great powers
make no effort to interfere is a
strange dispensation of the Almighty. The same prevails with
the diabolical deeds of the "terrible
Turk," the atrocities sanctioned
by the inhuman monster who occupies the throne of Bavaria, the indiscriminate massacres by the bloodthirsty Shah of Persia, besides other
similar cases. One is almost inclined to believe that it would be
entirely contradictory to infinite law
if some retribution were not dealt
out to the powers as accessories, in
view of their apparent indifference
to all the horribly sickening practices on the part of imperialistic
fiends.
The citizens of Merritt, together
with the Conservative association,
may congratulate themselves upon
the entire success of the first political mass meeting ever held in this
young city. The night was an
ideal one for an open air meeting
and the mosquitos did not behave
too badly at all. The premier and
his colleagues were deeply impressed with the indications of the bright
iuture in store for this camp ; they
were agreeably surprised at the large
number which turned out to greet
them, and the intelligent interest
and enthusiasm displayed throughout. Mr. McBride expects to speak
here again the coming fall, when
the Dominion elections contest is
on the boards.
The crusade in the United States
against the indiscriminate use of
explosives on Independence Day,
is giving the gunpowder trust a
hard knock. Only $12,000,000.00
worth of powder was used on the
glorious Fourth this year, and the
number of fatal accidents was cut
down to nearly two thousand.
Pessimistic persons are sure to read
in this a sign of declining patriotism across the line.
There's a gleam in his eye and a
grin on his face as the wily farmer
these days gazes over his fields, runs
his fingers through the proverbial
bunch of whiskers and chews the
proverbial wisp of straw; for he now
knows that only some dire and prodigious calamity can ruin his prospects for a bumper crop this fall.
The better times are almost here
and happy is the farmer man.
The Vancouver yacht Alexandra
won the first and third heats over
the Spirit of Seattle in the second
annual international yacht race, in
Canadian waters last week, thereby bringing home the Dunsmuir
cup. The struggle lasted three
days and was witnessed by thousands amid much excitement.
Life in Vancouver has been remarkably tame since Joe Martin
