Twenty-three Oars of Black Diamonds
Shipped Last Week.-Kamloops
Has Hanging Bee.-Court Is
Held In a Tent.
The Nicola Valley Coal & Coke company have a specimen of coal exhibited
in the window of F. H. Lantz & Co's
office at Vancouver. The piece at the
mines was a large one and had to be broken to load it on the car, but at the present
time weighs 11-2 tons.
Work is going ahead at the company's
property in good shape and the workings laid out and opened in a systematic manner. Last week 23 cars of coal
were shipped to outside points and this
week the company completed arrangements with corporation of Kamloops to
supply coal for city purposes.
Buildings for residences and company's
business are continually being put up
and from present indications things will
soon be humming at Middlesboro colleries.  ^^^
Hanged at Kamloops.
Francisco Ceddio, the Italian murderer, was hanged on Friday morning at
the jail at Kamloops.
The crime he expiated was that of
having blown up the Niagara hotel, near
Greenwood a year ago last January.
Ceddio was infatuated with Louise King
the daughter is the proprietor and when
she refused to marry him he blew up
the hotel, killing the girl.
He escaped to the United States, but
a few weeks ago was arrested, and being returned to British Columbia, was
tried, convicted of murder and sentenced to the death penalty.
B. 0. AMALGAMATED
Will Move Diamond Drill Operations
to Midday Valley.
J. W. Flaniganj superintendent of the
B. C. Amalgamated Coal company, has
been making an examination of the holdings of the company in Midday valley,
about seven miles from Merritt, with
the expectation that at an early date he
will move the diamond drill to that place
and thoroughly explore the promising
coal properties of the company.
With the building of the new line of
the C. P. R. to Midway, the coal company will have rail access to their properties through the Siwash meadows on
the Coldwater river, and with the successful opening up of the company's
property to a shipping point, this line
will give a market for their product in
the boundary district.
For some time past the company has
been operating on Voght's property,
and has now decided to prospect other
portions of their properties to ascertain
the extent of their coal seams.

Court Sits in Tent.
On Saturday the first sessions of the
Prince Rupert county court were held
at that place by Judge Young when but
few cases were tried. The court sat in
the tent which does service as a police
court, as the new court house has not
progressed beyond the foundation which
has been completed. The residence and
office of the government agent, who for
the past several years has been stationed at Port Simpson, but who will be
moved to Prince Rupert, is nearly completed and will be finished in a short
time.

Two Delegates From Nicola Valley Will
Attend Irrigation Convention at
Vernon.��� Cattle Rate Resolution Passed.
A supplementary meeting of the Nicola Farmers' Institute was held in Hyland hall on Monday evening, D. Dodding, president, in the chair.
The meeting was called for the purpose of selecting delegates to attend the
second annual convention of the Western
Canada Irrigation Association, to be
held at Vernon from August 10th to
15th.
H. S. Cleasby and H. H. Matthews
were chosen as delegates, with R. L.
Clark and D. Dodding as alternates.
A resolution was passed to be forwarded to the agricultural department,
the C.P.R. com pan v and the Vancouver
board of trade: "That in the opinion
of this meeting the rates charged by the
C. P. R. from Nicola to Vancouver on
cattle are excessive, in view of the fact
that the carload rate from Kamloops is
$56 for 250 miles, whereas the rate from
Nicola is $64 for 225 miles; therefore,
in our opinion, we are entitled to the
same rate per mile as obtains on the
main line."
Nicola valley is much interested in the
water question and several good points
were brought out at the meeting in connection with irrigation, and the delegates were allowed to use their own discretion on the different subjects as they
were discussed at the convention, both
being well aware of the trials and tribulations on the question as it affects
Nicola valley.
A number of expert irrigationists will
be in attendance and an interesting program of papers and addresses on the
various phases of the subject of irrigation has been arranged, and the vital
question of water legislation will receive
full ventilation, and much valuable information should be gained as a result.
On the way to Vernon on the 10th of
August a stop of two or three hours Will
be made at Armstrong, where the citizens will provide teams and drive the
delegates through the district. One
special reason for the stop at Armstrsng
will be to impress upon the delegates
the strong local feeling that immediate
steps should be taken in the direction of
forest preservation on account of its
elose relation to the question of water
supply.
Monday afternoon and evening and
Tuesday will be devoted to business
sessions at Vernon, a most comprehensive series of papers and addresses having been secured, and much important
discussion arranged for.
On Wednesday the delegates will be
driven over the irrigation systems of
the White Valley Power and Irrigation
company, incidentally passing the Coldstream ranch, Lord Aberdeen's famous
fruit property.
For Thursday, Friday and Saturday
steamers have been chartered from the
C.P.R. for an excursion down Okanagan
lake, and arrangements have been made
to drive the delegates over the irrigation
systems at Kelowna, Peachland, Sum-
merland and Penticton.
This opportunity to combine business
with pleasure, and visit one of the most
interesting sections of British Columbia
while also taking part in a convention
which has for its object the furtherance
of one of the most important movements
ever started in Canada, is an altogether
exceptional one, and one which no person who is eligible as a delegate can
afford to neglect

To Protect Fish.
The new Dominion regulations relative to the fishing industry in British
Columbia contains a few clauses of
special importance to inland waters.
The taking of trout of all kinds is prohibited from November 15th to March
25th following, except in the waters of
the interior of the Province of British
Columbia east of meridian 120, west
longitude, where the taking of trout of
all kinds from November 15th to May
1st is prohibited.
No kind of netting is allowed in fresh
water lakes and on non-tidal waters.
Salmon under three pounds must be
returned to the water. Trout under
three pounds cannot be bought, sold or
exposed for sale in the Province.
Exhibition Lacrosse.
A large crowd gathered at the island,
Toronto, on Saturday afternoon to witness the exhibition lacrosse played by
the Westminsters, champions of the
world and the Tecupsehs. The visitors
were defeated by 10 goals to 4. It was
easily recognized that they were playing for exhibition only and were not
putting  forth  their  whole   strength.
The champions return home next week
where a great reception is being prepared for them.
Ven. Archdeacon Small of Lytton
and Dr. Hone of Vancouver were in
in Nicola valley this week.
A. Faulds and family of Middlesboro,
accompanied by Mrs. and Miss Lock-
hart, Sundayed at Quiichena.
A general meeting of the Nicola
Athletic Association will be held in the
club room, Nicola, on Thursday evening
next at eight o,clock. Business: Election of president and other business.
The party or parties who are using
dynamite in the Coldwater river for the
purpose of killing fish had better beware, as it is against the law to use
such methods to get fish. Last week a
short distance up the river a large number were taken in this way, and inf oim-
has been received as to who are the
guilty ones. If a man ia hungry be can
get all the fish he needs from any sportsman, but an individual who would use
dynamite is "cultus" and deserves all
the law can give him.
I
Sufferers Being Taken Care Of.-Pernle
Michel and Ooal Creek Destroyed
���Property Lobs Over Five
Million Dollars.
"Fernie is in ruins!" was the awful
news flashed over the wires last Saturday evening.
The bush fire which was raging in
West Fernie in the morning, jumped
the river at about three o'clock in the
afternoon, striking the south end of
the town. The Fort Steel Brewery
was the first to go, and from there
the sparks carried the fire into the
Old Town, which was soon a pall of
smoking embers. At the same time
the Elk Lumber Co's mill and the Cedar
Valley Mills caught fire, and in an incredibly short time West Fernie was in
flames, the people fleeing for their lives.
The conflagration jumped the river by
wagon bridge, and set the west snd of
the town afire, and fanned by the
hurricane that was blowing, the city
was at the mercy of the fire-fiend, the
wind attaining the velocity and force
of a cyclone.
The frightened people were thrown
off their feet in many cases, trees
crashed to the ground and the scene
was most apalling, the crowds rushed
to the railway station in the hope of
getting a train and in this manner
many reached Hosmer in safety, though
the tracks ran through sheets of flames
which frequently set fire to the coaches.
The scene during the conflagration
defies description. It was simply a
fight for every life, and to the credit
of the citizens it can be said they
fought nobly and well, and did their
duty without flinching. The blow ia
the worst ever dealt a Canadian town.
The latest news from the Crows Nest
Pass shows a death list of 62, which will
probably be increased to 70 or 80; a loss
in property exceeding $5)1000,000 and
about 7000 homeless people. Femie and
Michel have been wiped out and Coal
Creek, five miles east of Fernie, is also
destroyed. Hosmer lost some ten houses
and the coal company's surface works
were destroyed.
The Provincial Government has given
the Government agents at Fernie
Nelson and Cranbrook carte blanche
with regard to expenditures necessary
for the fire sufferers of East Kootenay.
Superintendant Hussey of the Provincial Police was despatched to the
scene and will assume charge of the
government relief work.
Subscription lists have been opened
and already large sums of money have
beed subscribed in all totaling thousands of dollars. The Dominion Express Company is forwarding free of
charge supplies of clothing, which are being collected by ladies' committees.
RELIEF  MEETING.
A meeting will be held in Hyland
hall tomorrow (Friday evening) at 8
o'clock to arrange for a relief committee to collect funds for the Crows Neat
Pass sufferers. Everyone turn, oat and
help.
Two Indians were committed for perjury by Justices of the Peace G. Murray
and H. H. Matthews at. Nicola last
week, and will come up for trial at the
next sitting of court. It is about time
the magistrates put a step, to- the deliberate, premeditated kjring that is so
common in the police court cases. Some
of the evidence given by both whitea
and Indians would put Annanais in the
background. THE   NICOLA    HERALD

Merbitt,, B.C., August 6, 1908.
Several newspapers of the province are waging a war against compulsory vaccination. The arguments advanced are well grounded
and should set the pnblic thinking.
Eminent modern anthorities claim
that vaccination propagates consumption, that dread disease which
stands far above any other in the
death statistics of the country.
Few people die in Canada from
small-pox, which is a disease of
filth and degeneracy, and a very
small minority of the populace ever
come in contact with it, let alone
contract it. And yet there is an
order compelling the wholesale vaccination of the school children of
this province. In other words the
youth of the land is to be inoculated with cow-pox ��� virus from
diseased cattle���for little other
reason than that the demands of
tradition and superstition be satisfied. Inoculation of the vaccine
renders the child sick for days and
weeks, and often plants the seeds
for a disease far more deadly and
ravenous than small-pox. We
read a good deal these days about
the deterioration of the human
race within the past hundred years,
and it is significant to note that
vaccination was adopted by the
medical profession a little over a
century ago. It is also significant to
note that during the said period
consumption has been on the increase. Late scientists who have
departed from the wa}'S oJ fossil-
ism and thrown away the goggles
of superstitious prejudice declare
against the danger and tommy-rot
connected with the inoculation of
putrid bovine virus. A booze-
saturated native of Arizona was
once asked why he kept continually
soaked with alcohol. He replied
that it was a protection against
rattle-snake bites. His logic was
about as sound as that of the worshippers of the vaccine god.
of the district being so large."
Duncan Ross has the reputation of
being one of the most shifty acrobats in the political- arena of the
Dominion, but he should give the
people he represents credit for having just a little bit of common,
every-day horse sense.
Always be loyal to your own
town. Even the most pessimistic
knocker has an involuntary respect
for the man who has a good word
for local enterprises and is not always looking for the gloomy side
of his surroundings, but conducts
his own affairs in a whole-hearted
manner and has no time to interfere
in the affairs of his neighbor.
This is the class of citizen who is
the backbone of a community.
But the man who is always cursing
his town and willing to dig its
grave is a pest and a blight. His
nose always protrudes into the concerns of others and he com mauds
the respect of no one. There are
two reasons why some people don't
mind their own business���one is
that they haven't any mind, and the
other is that they haven't any business.
Just to show the utter absurdity
of the stand being taken by Duncan
Ross, it is only necessary to note
that in 1896, when Kootenay was
also included in the Yale-Cariboo
electoral district, no difficulty whatever was experienced in pulling off
the election on the general date.
Now, with much less territory to
cover and with better means of
communication to cover it. with,
Mr. Ross finds it necessary to postpone the contest here "on account
Many bush fires that have resulted in great loss of timber and property, and in some instances loss of
life, have originated through the
wanton carelessness of summer
camping parties. Despite the untiring efforts of the press and the
firewardens to warn campers against
the dangers of a camp-fire not carefully guarded, fires from this cause
are being continually reported.
The fool-killer has a good deal on
his bands with the "didn't know
it was loaded'' fiend and the fool
who rocks the boat, but he would
add to his laurels by camping on
the trail of the ignoramus who is
responsible for bush fires that
sometimes destroy cities.
The Cranbrook Herald says it
has $100 to bet against Goodeve's
election in Kootenay. If this is
not one of the "Old Man's" well-
known bluff bubbles, that preacher
must have withdrawn his libel suit.
