LABOR DAY SPORTS
QUILCHENA   RAOES   LARGELY  ATTENDED BY ENTHUSIASTS.
Quarter, Half and One Mile Races the
Event of the Day.���All the Races
Were Keenly Contested and
Hade Good Sport.
Quiichena was en fete on Labor Day.
A large crowd from all over the valley
and outside points wdre in attendance
and although the day was cool the races
were run with considerable enthusiasm
and created a lot of sport.
About one thirty o, clock the races
commenced and were carried through
with the usual Quiichena vim. The
chief events were the quarter, half
and one mile races, and (he sport was
centered on these dttractions.
The Hotel Quiichena did all that was
possible to accommodate the attendance
and with Joseph Guichon the proprietor,
and Manager Charles Hill, did what
they could to satisfy the wants of the
guests.
Following is the races and winners
of the different events:
In the quarter mile five horses faced
the starter, and all got off with a good
start with Grey Eagle slightly in the
lead and was a good race to the turn
when Grey Eagle and Ginger made a
race of it to the wire, leaving the
others stretched out behind. Grey
Eagle 1, Ginger 2, Rosie 3rd.
In the half mile the starter found it
difficult to get the horses off with an
even break. Signee was inclined to be
troublesome with his heels and succeeded in kicking Girlie on the front shoulder. Signee's jockey was either off in
the lead every time or else hung back
and allowed the others to score up
without him. However, he succeeded
in getting about three lengths the start
and immediately crossed from outside
of track to the pole and held that position to the finish, with Girlie 2, Grey
Eagle 3.
The mile race was the best race of
the day. Signee set the pace for first
half, closely followed by Tosti, Girlie
and Bessie Trimble. At the three-
quarter Bessie Trimble moved up to
first place followed by Tosti and Girlie.
Bessie Trimble finished first with a few
lengths to spare, Tosti second well
ahead of Girlie who was third with
Signee trailing. Signee set to fast a
pace in the first half and killed whatever chance he had to win.
Cowboy race: P. Riley's Roanie 1;
A. Jackson's Roxie.
Klootchman's race: Margaret's Grasshopper 1; May's Quiichena 2.
Consolation race: Steven's Rosie 1;
English's Coyote 2.
Indian race: Mike's Mack 1; Charley's Billy.	
Railway Commissioners.
It is reported that W. A. Galliher,
M. P., for Kootenay, Hon. T. Green-
way of Manitoba, and Darcy Scott,
mayor of Ottawa, will be the additional
appointments to the board of railway
commissioners.
PROVISIONS OP ELECTION AOT.
The clerk of the crown in chancery,
has compiled the new dominion elecr
tions act, which went into effect on
July 20th. It contains many new provisions affecting candidates, electors,
newspapers and printing offices.
It is made a caiminal offence, punishable by heavy fine, to take down,
mutilate or deface any proclamation,
notice, voters' list or other document
required to be posted up under the provisions of the act.
No person can make any contribution
on behalf of any candidate except
through the agent of such candidate.
The bribery provisions in the act are
made much more severe.
Canvassing by persons residing outside of Canada is made an indictable
offence.
Printing offices are required to give
the address of the printer and publisher
on every class of printed material issued in connection with an election.
The making of a false statement
with regard to the personal character
of a candidate renders the person making it liable to a fine of not less than
$100.
Contributions for political purposes
by any company or association are also
made an indictable offence.
After the Minto Cap.
Minto Cup Trustee P. D. Ross announces that there is no truth in the
report that the New Westminster lacrosse team has been given the option
of playing the first series for the Cup
either this fall or next season. New
Westminster reports say that the present holders of the silverware declined
to play in defence of the trophy this
year, but Mr. Ross says that if Tecum-
sehs, or Capitals, should they become
N. L. U. champions, wish to go to the
Fraser River district in search of the
mug, they will be given dates by the
trustees.
Suit Against O. P. R.
J. W. Flanigan,- superintendent of
the B. C. Amalgamated Coal Co., has
entered a suit against the C. P. R. Co.,
for damages, incidental to the expulsion of his family from a drawing
room on one of the Pullman cars on the
Soo-Spokane trains. Mrs. Flanigan
and family left Merritt for Chicago on
August 6th and having engaged the
drawing room by telegraph, occupied
it to Field, when they were removed
from same, entailing hardship to Mrs.
Flanigan and children, which necessitated her being under the care of a
physician on arrival in Chicago.
The New Archbishop.
A despatch from Rome says: The
congregation of the propaganda has
approved the transfer of the seat of the
Canadian ecclesiastical province of Victoria to Vancouver, appointing the
Right Rev. Augustin Dontenwell, bishop of New Westminster, archbishop
of Victoria, in succession to Archbishop Orth, resigned, and appointing
the Very Rev. Alexander McDonald
vicar-general of Antigonish, the new
bishop of Victoria.
Mr. Coyle Resigns.
E. J. Cyle, assistant general passenger agent of the C. P. R., with headquarters in Vancouver, has tendered
his resignation and will leave the company's service next month. It is not
yet known who will succeed him, but
the name of Mr. Foster, at present in
charge of the passenger service in Toronto, has been mentioned, and he may
come to the (coast.
SHUSWAP MURDER
WHISKY   THB  CAUSE   OP   INDIAN
SHOOTING APPRAY.
Indian   Andrew  Shoots  Indian Jules
and Finishes Htm Off  By Crushing   His   Forehead   With
a Large Stone.
What looks like deliberate murder was perpetrated at the Halaut
reserve at Shuswap reserve last
Friday, the crime being the outcome of bad feeling and whisky.
The victim was an Indian named
Billy Jules and the man charged
with killing him is known a" Martin Andrew. Alec Duprat and F.
MacKenny provided tthe whisky
and there was a carousal in which
half a dozen Indians took part.
Under the infludnce of the liquor
Andrew took his rifle and shot
Jules, the bullet striking him in
the right side, breaking a rib and
running round in front of the abdomen under the skin, emerged in
the midline. The shot did not kill
but it disabled the victim. Possibly fearing to fire another shot
or perhaps because he had only the
one charge in the rifle, Andrew finished the work he had begun by
crushing in Jules' forehad with a
large stone.
All the persons implicated in the
affair were promptly placed under
arrest and the two wretches who
supplied the whisky were Summarily dealt witn by tne magistrates at
Shuswap, Duprat being given the
full penalty of six months and
MacKenny escaping with a lighter
sentence of sixty days.
An inquest was held on Friday
at Shuswap by Coroner Clarke and
a verdict of murder found.
Provincial Constable Fernie
brought the whole party concerned
in the affair to Kamloops and
Andrew was given a hearing.

PRASER   CENTENNIAL.
The year 1910 will be a notable one
for New Westminsteo and for the entire province of British Columbia for in
that year a gorgeous pageant is to cele"
brete a number of great events in the
history of the province. For this reason the full celebration of the Simon
Fraser centennial has been postponed
and only a historical exhibit has been
arranged for the Provincial exhibition.
In 1910 the events of 100 years or more
will be re-enacted, if present plans do
not go astray, on the banks of the
Fraser river, when voyageurs, representative of Simon Fraser and his band
of adventurers, will descend the river
to the mouth as of old. The discovery
of Vancouver Island, and the arrival of
the C. P. R. at the coast, with other
notable events of provincial history will
be interluded in the pageant, the carrying' out of which will be largely in the
handb of the Provincial government.
No details have been arranged, but the
broad outline of the celebration has been
informally decided upon, and it is expected that the pageant will follow
lines similar to the recent Quebec celebration.
A PIONEER KILLED
FUNERAL HELD AT LOWER NIOOLA
THURSDAY AFTERNOON.
S. H. Smith of Toronto was at Nicola this week.
R. W. W. Reid and Mrs. Reid were
visitors to Quiichena on Labor Day.
F. W. Jackson and daughter of Quiichena were visitors to Merritt on Thursday.
C. R. Porter and J. T. Hillis arrived
from Vancouver Monday evening and
were visiting at Douglas Lake.
Mr. and Mrs. F. P. Cook of Granite
creek were at Lower Nicola this week
attending the funeral of Mrs. Cook's
father.
Mrs. J. Chapman has recovered from
her recent accident and is now at home
to her friends at her residence at Lower
Nicola.
J. H. McNeil, who has been in Merritt the past few weeks left this week
for the B. C. Amalgamated properties
where he will be employed.
Thomas Allice of Victoria and J. H.
Foster of Vancouver, well known commercial men, were in the valley this
week doing business for their firms.
Indian Trouble Settled.
The two Salmon Arm chiefs, who escaped from the custody of the police
after being fined for illegal setting of
fish traps, surrendered on Thursday.
The whole question was quietly threshed out between the culprits and superintendent Hussey, who was assisted by
Indian Agent Irwin. The Indians were
told that if they paid their fine and
apologized for breaking away from the
officers that nothing more would be said
about the trouble. This they did, and
the matter was thus smoothed over.
Rev. C. K. Mathewson who has been
in the valley for the past few months
in charge of the Presbyterian church
work will leave shortly for Winnipeg,
Frank M. Johnson who is connected
with the survey party working on the
ranches at the head of the lake, was

Thomas Stewart, of Vancouver, arrived in Nicola Monday evening and
left next morning for Granite creek,
where he is interested with R. A. Lambert in mining properties.
Walkem Trial.
The new trial in the Walkem case
ordered by the full court will probably
be the first of the criminal cases to be
taken up at the fall assizes at Vancouver.
Henry  Woodward  An   Early  Settler
Killed by Train At Kamloops on
Sunday Afternoon.���Enquiry
Being Made.
A fatal accident happened a short
distance west of the city limits at Kamloops on the C. P. R. track on Sunday
afternoon about half past three o'clock,
Henry Woodward, well known throughout the Nicola valley, being the victim.
The deceased had been visiting his
daughter, Mrs. A. Irwin, and was returning to the residence of Mrs. G.
Clapperton, another daughter, at the
time of the fatal occurrence. Despite
frequent admonitions, the old gentleman, who was in his eighty-eighth
year, made a practice of walking along
the railway track and followed that
practice on Sunday. Being somewhat
hard of hearing, it is supposed he did
not hear the train following him until
close at hand and it would appear from
the nature of his injuries that he had
made an attempt, too late, to step out
of the way. He was seen walking
down the track about a quarter past
three and 15 minutes later a train followed. Shortly afterwards his body was
found lying on the river bank, where
he had been thrown when the train
struck him.
He was twice married and leaves
several sons and daughters to mourn
his loss, these being Mrs. A. Irwin and
Mrs. G. Clapperton of Kamloops, Mrs.
J. Irwin of Nelson, Emerson Woodward
of Fedley, Mrs. Carswell, Red Deer,
Alta.; J. Woodward, Edmonton; F.
Woodward, Salmon Arm; Mrs. F.Cook,
Granite creek, and Jas. Woodward of
Nicola.
Besides the children the deceased
leaves two brothers one residing in Ontario and the other in Omaha.
The deceased was born on October 11
1822, in Warwickshire, England and
came to Canada when about six years
of age. After spending some time in
Ontario farming he moved to Lower
Nicola in 1875 and continued farming
and stockraising until about two years
ago when he moved to Salmon Arm
with his son Frank. He had always enjoyed good health and sickness was
unknown to him, and after reaching the
age he attained it is sad that he
should meet his death in such a manner.
The body was brought to Lower Nicola on Wednesddy's train accompanied
by Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Clapperton, Mr.
and Mrs. F. D. Woodward and Mrs. A.
Irwin. The remains of deceased's wife
who was buried at Nicola eleven years
ago were taken to Lower Nicola and
placed in the same grave.
The funeral was held from tha Methodist church and after the service was
removed to the cemetery, being followed by a large number of friends and
relatives frsm all parts of the valley.
The following were the pallbearers:
Wm. Riley, Jas. Chapman, H. H.
Woodward, R. M. Woodward, D. Dodding and Robert Johnson.
The funeral services were conducted
by Rev. E. C. Fakely and G. Murray.
Proceedings in an inquest in connection with the death were held yesterday.
Judge Cassels will be a. month in the
maritime provinces in connection with
the marine  department enquiry.   He-
will then come to the Pacific coast. THE   NICOLA    HERALD

IRRIGATION POINTERS.
The following are a few important pointers on irrigation found
in J. S. Dennis' speech at the convention held at Vernon a few weeks
ago and published by the Grand
Forks Gazette.
Some of the points in Mr.Dennis'
splendid address were as follows:
The ultimate success of irrigation
must depend on the law relating to
the use ot water.
There is more land suitable for
irrigation than there is water with
which to irrigate.
In British Columbia, if all the
available water were used it might
irrigate from 25 to 30 per cent, of
the available land.
Unless suitable and just laws
are passed there will always be
more money speat on litigation
than irrigation.
The first weak spot in B. C. water
legislation is the use of the miner's
inch as the unit of measurement.
It is a measurement interpreted
differently in various places and
should be suberseded by the unit of
a cubic foot per second or the acre
foot measurement.
At present you have a clear cut
title to the land, but not a clear
cut title to the water.
The present law is too cumbersome and  too hard to understand.
The government should appoint
a commission of experts to examine
all existing records. Those records
which have never been used should
be snuffed out of existence. This
was drastic but the tying up of
water without use must not be permitted.
Those records where doubt existed as to use must be given consideration.
The commission would measure
and guage the various water supplies in flood water, high water and
low water. When after inspection
a man gets his record of license, he
knows exactly what he has got.
At present every creek, every
stream is over-recorded. There
should be no possibility of having
a record and yef. no water to correspond.
The conditions in British Columbia make the storage of water a
primal consideration, and large
reservoirs at the heads of streams
will permit tne conservation of
flood water.
With the proper use of water
under a well considered law, southern British Columbia would be the
foremost horticultural country on
the continent.
Mr. Dennis' address was concluded amidst great spplause and sub-
sepuently a number of questions
relating to the whole question were
asked and answered. ' "The Hon.
F. J. Fulton and the government",
said Mr. Dennis, "deserve credit
for promising in the case of legislation to submit a draft of the new
Act to all interests concerned so
that any Bill which might be submitted to the House should be fair,
not only to all those who had existing water rights but also to those
who were concerned in building up
the country and to whom the use
of water was a vital necessity."
In view of the approaching general elections it is interesting to
note that the Laurier governsient
has a large majority in the commons.    The figures by provinces are:
Ontario, Liberals 39, Conservatives 47; Quebec, Liberals 54,
Conservatives 11; Nova Scotia,

Determining the Ago of Oattle.
Disputes frequently arise at fairs as
to the eligibility of a certain animal to
compete in a certain class, It may be
alleged that the animal is over the age
limit for that class, and while the exhibitor may produce a pedigree for it,
in case the class is a pure bred one, it
doesn'talwayshappen that the pedigree
is taken as conclusive proof of age. To
overcome these difficulties and to provide something for judges to use in the
ring as a basis for determining the age
of cattle, the management of the International Exposition, have adopted
the following ' mouth specifications,
which apply to cattle between the ages
of twelve and thirty-nine months:
Twelve Months���An animal of this
age shall have all its milk (calf) incisor
teeth in place.
Fifteen Months���At this age centre
pair of incisor teeth may be replaced by
centre pair of permanent incisors
(pinchers.) the latter teeth being
through the gums but not yet in wear.
Eighteen Months���The middle pair of
permanent incisors at this age should
be fully up in wear, but next pair (first
intermediate) not yet cut through gums.
Twenty-Four Months���The mouth at
this age will show two middle permanent (broad) incisors fully up and in wear,
and next'^air (first intermediate) well
but not in wear.
Thirty Months���The mouth at this
age may show six broad permanent incisors, the middle and first intermediate
pairs fully up and in wear, and the
next pair (second intermediate) well up
but not in wear.
It is stated that the orchard of J. P.
Pridharp, of Kelowna, will this season
produce 700 tons or 35,000 boxes cf
apples.
The date of the Provincial Exhibition
at New Westminster is Sept. 29 and 30
