MERRITT, B. G, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23, 1908.
$2 a Year.
ITEMS OF INTEREST
CONCERT    AND     DANOB     IN    AID
OP SHULTJS SCHOOL.
Was well  Attended and   a Good Programme     Rendered���Copper
Claims at  Spence's
Bridge Bouded.
A concert and dance was held on Friday evening in Hyland's Hall and considering the inclemency of the weather
there was a very large attendance and
a most enjoyable evening was spent.
The hall was crowded, every available
seat being taken.
Or. Tutill performed the office of
chairman and with a few remarks stated
the object of the concert, namely, to
raise funds for the Indian Mission
School at Shulus, and welcomed those
present.
The following programme was rendered:
Piano duet: Mrs. Tutill and Miss
Seaton.
Songs: Mrs. Gay and Miss Bertha
Woodward.
Recitation:   Dr. Hone.
Songs: Messrs. W. and J. Williams
and Dr.   Tutill.
Medley trio selection, : Mrs. Gay,
Dr. and Mrs. Tutill.
Dr. Hone made a few remarks thanking those present for coming out on
such an unfavorable night and also
those contributing to the concert.
After the concert the floor was
cleared and dancing being continued till
2 a. m.   Refreshments being served.
Copper Claims Bonded.
Four of the copper claims owned by
Messrs. Sawyer and E. G. Fryer, near
Spences Bridge, have been bonded to
an Old Country syndicate for $200,000.
This is a copper proposition and bids
fair to be one of the best group of
claims in British Columbia. The vendors have still a group of six other claims
on the same lands and it is understood
that negotiations are on foot to acquire
these also. In the work dene on the
first four will indicate the value of the
group.
Settlers vs. Ranchers.
An order-in-council has been passed
at Ottawa, setting forth .that the
grazing leases heretofore, granted
covering Dominion lands in the railway
belt in British Columbia, provide that
the whole or any portion of tho leasehold shall be held open to homestead
entry, pre-emption entry and purchase.
It has been represented to the Minister
that certain tracts of land held uuder
lease are not suited for agricultural
purposes and that stockmen are being
seriously inconvenienced by settlers
within these leaseholds leaving gates
open and fences down. Hon. Mr. Oliver
with a view to overcoming this difficulty and furnishing reasonable protection to ranchmen, recommends that, with
the concurrence of the lessee, he be
authorized to cancel the lease now in
existence of such leaseholds as have
been inspected   by an officer of the
Department of the Interior, and grant
a new lease for such portions thereof
as are reported by such officer to be
unoccupied and unsuitable for agricultural purposes, the lease to cover a
cover a period of twenty-one years j
from the date on which the original j
lease was granted, and provide for its
cancellation, either in whole or in part
on giving the lessee two years notice
in writing.
IS LAURER'S DOOM
THE LONDON  TIMES  PREDICTS DE
FEAT FOR GOVERNMENT.
Tennis Tournament.
On Saturday afternoon an interesting
tennis tournament was held at Coutlee,
between teams from Middlesboro and
Nicola, for a silver cup presented by
A" M. Tyson and H. Cripps of Vancouver.
The first set was won by Middlesboro,
Messrs. Gibson and Niven defeating
Messrs. Smith and McColl, the second
set between Messrs. Lafferty and Curtin of Nicola, and Messrs. Forsyth and
Chaplin of Middlesboro, was won by the
former. The third set was also won by
Nicola, Messrs. Brash and Allan defeating Messrs. Solomon and Tutill.
All the games were keenly contested
and Nicola has every reason to be proud
of their victory in the first series of
games for the cup. There was a large
and enthusiastic number of spectators
each encouraging thrir favorites.
The finals will be played off shortly
with the Diamond Vale players. The
date will be announced later.
The Coal Supply.
Great Northern officials declared last
week that owing to the bush fires the
Fernie coal mines, which had been relied upon to supply from 1, 300 to 1, 800
tons of fuel daily for the domestic trade
will not be able to supply more than
200 tons. Practically all that eastern
Washington hitherto supplied by Fernie
will be dependent on the colleries of
western Washington. In addition the
strike in the Wyoming mines will make
it necessary for south-eastern Washington to procure a new source of supply.
Telephone Exchange.
Arrangements are being made by the
Dominion government to install an exchange office at Merritt for their telephone line, parties desiring 'phones in
their place of business or residence
should leave their order with G. B.
Armstrong at Merritt. Representations were made to Duncan Ross during
his visit here, with the result that
action has been taken in the matter.
W. R. Brown and wife of Vancouver
were at Nicola a few days this week.
Mr. Brown is president of the South
Nicola Company, whose property is on
Hamilton Hill.
The grand jury at the recent Kamloops assize brought in recommendations in which we are in hearty accord.
One is the law with regard to the supplying of Indians with liquor be amended
so as to increase the term of punishment to two years, as the practise is
becoming too common.
Recognizes   that   Premier's   Personal
Charm is no Longer a Factor   in
the Fight.-Station   Site
For Merritt'
A London "Times'" editorial
strikes the authoritative note
of doubt in the English press
regarding Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier's chances of success at the
coming elections. It declares
that the Canadian people are
showing a disposition to reconsider their allegiance to Sir
Wilfrid and the Liberal government. "Sir Wihred's personality," the writer asserts,
"is no longer a dominating factor." The writer regards the
Fraser incident at Ottawa as
significant. "The campaign
literature of the Opposition, alleging 'graft' seems certified by
official reports. Sir Wilfrid's
services to Canada are cordially recognized. He is not
personally incrimated, but even
if the Ministerialists and count
on his great reputation to save
them from defeat, their majority will be considerably lessened."
The "Morning Post" editorial agrees with the ''Times"
that Sir Wilfrid will have a
harder struggle than ever to
retain power' "He himself,"
it says, "is destined to an abiding place in Imperial history,
but there is little doubt that
during the latter years of his
administration corrupt practices
aiming at private profit, have
become deplorably common.
The Canadian people are determined to grapple with the
evil, which is a penalty they
pay for proximity to the United
States."
The "Morning Post" commends the non-political Civil
Service Commission, and says
that the the best opinion is
that the Liberals cannot hope
for more than a relatively insignificant mojority, and any
considerable loss in Quebec
will mean Mr. Borden's victory.

The Grim Reaper.
AID THE INJURED
The many friends of Mr.
and Mrs. Andrew McGoran
of the Nicola Valley Lbr. Co.
at Petit Creek, will regret to
learn of the death of their six-
year-old daughter who passed
away on Thursday last. The
cause of death being typhoid
fever. Three other children
are confined to the house with
the same disease and late reports state they are improving.
Dr. Tutill and Dr. Curtin being in attendance.
Choice Fruit.
The Nicola Herald received
this week samples of apples
and plums grown by F. W.
Jacksou of the Triangle ranch
Quiichena. They were of excellent quality and would compete with any grown tn the
province. Besides fruit of this
kind the Triangle grows some
ot the finest small fruits in the
district.
The delay of the Nicola
Herald this week was caused
by an accident to the press
which necessitated delaying
the issue until Saturday.
The results of the  Dominion elections  will  be received
at G. B. Armstrong's on Mon
day evening the 26th.
Station Site.
D. Creed and his gang of
men have been engaged the
past few days fixing up the C.
J. E. Bate of Aspen Grove and Mr.
Fuller of Seattle were in Merritt this
week and spent a short time up the
Coldwater river in connection with
timber interests.
What is said to be the greatest discovery of gold in Western Canada between Winnipeg and the Great Lakes
was made last week by Peter King, an
explorer, at Sturgeon Lake district,
near Port Arthur. A stampede of
hundreds to the new district has begun.
Louis Lobsinger arrived this week
from Montreal and is visiting with his
sister Mrs. John Collet.
BRANCH OF ST. JOHN'S AMBULANCE
ASSOCIATION  STARTED.
Dr. Tutill Will Give Course of Lectures
on This Important Subject. Commence on Sunday Morning
at Middlesboro.
A first aid to the injured and ambulance class has been formed at Middlesboro in affiliation with St. John's Ambu-
landc Association, headquarters at
London England and having classes all
over the world. Dr. Tutill will commence the lectures on Sunday morning
October 25th, at 10 a. m. in Carring-
ton's hall, this time and day being most
suited to the miners. Anyone wishing
to join are invited and can arrange for
membership, etc., by applying to J.
Ovington, secretary, when any information will be cheerfully  given.
While these classes are being conducted for miners it is knowledge which is
useful to everyone in cases of accident
or illness, therefore all are invited to
take advantage of the information to
be gained by these classes which will
be made as practical and instructive as
possible.
It is needless to dilate on this, one of
the most useful and reliable services
which are rendered to humanity in
cases of accident, which have been
recorded in the past and accomplished
by the members of this great and noble
order who have been trained under the
banner of St. John's Ambulance Association.
Hindus Object.
Hindus at the coast object to deportation to British Honduras, and have
had a telegram sent to the secretary of
state for India, and a copy to, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, in which they say the Sikhs
in Victoria and Vancouver protest
against possible removal to British
Honduras. They declare they are willing to stay in Canada, and if forced to
vacate Canada they would prefer to return to India.
H. B. Thompson, M. P. P. for Victoria City passed through Merritt on
Tuesday.
Jenkins Case.
The criminal and civil assize court
opened at New Westminster this week.
The most important case on the list is
that of the negro Jenkins charged with
the murder of Mrs. Morrison near
Hazelmere several months ago. The
crime was the cause of great indignation throughout the district and Jenkins was caught after a long chase into
the state of Washington.
Judgement Reserved.
The Supreme Court has reserved
judgment in the British Columbia appeal of Castlemen vs. Waghorn,
arising out of a dispute over a Diamond
Vale stock transaction.

MARTIN  BURRELL.
Martin Burrell has never been in
public life so that he is wholely
immune from anything in the nature of a public wrong. Without
a public position it would not be
expected of him that he should
accomplish anything of a public
character. In fact no man prior
to his entrance into public life has
ever accomplished and of those
things that are the direct offspring
of a public  position.
But in his private capacity as a
citizen, Mr. Burrell has measured
up to that standard consistent with
the high principles of citizenship.
He is a man of sterling worth and
character, a man with a lofty purpose and a man whose name is sy-
nonimous with scrupulous nonesty
and broadmindedness in business
relationships. He is public spirited, enterprising; and energetic, and
is possibly the one man who has
done most to bring the potentialities of the fruit growing indnstries
in this province to the observation
of those abroad. In his capacity
as a fruit-grower he has accomplished much, of a material character
that would tend to the development
and expansion of that industry.
That in itself is worthy of tribute,
not alone from those who live in
the fruit-growing districts of which
this constituency forms a large
share, but alsov from the people of
thie province irrespective of class
.and party.��� Kamloops Standard.

Formal notice was issued last
Thursday at Ottawa by the Department of tne Interior in the form of
a public notice which is being sent
to all agents of the governmeut
throughautthe country with regard
to assignmeut of South African
volunteer land grants. Under subsection 3 of section 5 of the Volunteer Bounty act of last session it is
provided that no assignment of a
volunteer by appointment of a substitute shall be accepted or recognized by the Department of the
Interior unless such assignment has
been issued by the Minister of
Militia and defence in favor of the
volunteer.
Some question has risen as to the
proper interpretation of section 4
of the act as regards the time within which the grantee is reqnired to
perfect his entry by going into
actual residence upon the land.
In order to avoid any confusion
in this respect, it has been decided
that the volunteer or his substitute
should state in his application upon
entry tnat he agrees to go into residence upon his land within six
months of   the date   of entry  and
