Vol. 5, No. 4.
MERRITT, B. 0., FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 5, 1909.
$2 a Year.
C.P.R. LOOSENS UP
APPROPRIATION   MADE   FOR   HEW
STATION AT MERRITT     -
increased fire protection, etc.; a station
at Merritt, the new coal town on the
Nicola branch; ice houses at Vancouver
and North Bend; enlargement of the
station at Haney, and a number of small
i freight sheds, section house;; and bunk
j houses at various points.
Canadian Paciflo Railway to Squander
Over Two Million  Dollars This
Year   on   Pacific   Division
Improvements
Word has becn received by F. F. Bus-
teed, general superintendent of the Pacific diviaion of the C.P.P., that appropriations totalling over $2,000, COO were
passed at the head office in Montreal
for work on this division. This includes
several large bridges in different parts
of the province, yard improvements at
various points and general improvements, without taking into account any
construction work.
Perhaps the most important of the
improvements this year will be the replacing of the bridge at Cisco, on the
main line between North Bend and Lytton, with either a steel arch or a Piatt
truss, which will entail an expenditure
of a quarter of a million dollars. The
present bridge is the weak spot in the
system, and the bg locomotives which
are in use on the western end of the division are not regularly run over it.
While danger is not apprehended, as the
bridge could be used for years, it has
been deemed advisable to put in a bridge
that will bear any strain that may be
put upon it, as the saving in hauling
traffic with larger engines will more than
pay the interest on the money laid out.
The plans for the new structure are not
yet fully completed, but there will be
no more delay than necessary.
One or two large bridges will also be
constructed in the Kootenay, the cost
of which will be over $100,000 each.
, The large trestle at Porcupine creek,
in the Columbia and Western, will be
filled after building a culvert nearly 500
feet in length. A structure near Grand
Forks will be replaced with an embankment and culvert, and a trestle at
Greenwood will also be replaced with an
embankment and steel spans.
Work on reconstructing the bridge
over the Eraser river at Mission will be
continued, but will not be completed
this year. When high water starts
about the first of May, the work has to
be stopped andjCannot be resumed again
until about August. Masonry piers and
steel spans are being put in here.
Between Vancouver and Kamloop3 26
masonry or concrete arches and culverts
will be constructed. Between Kamloops
and Laggan the bridge work will not be
extensive, as so much has been done in
the last few years that the bridge work
on this section has been practically completed. A number of culverts, however, will be built in concrete. Ten or
more bridges will have concrete abutments, replacing piles, and four steel
and masonry bridges will be built on the
Eagle river.
Special attention will be paid to the
yards, and extensive improvements will
be made in those at Mission Junction,
Spences Bridge and Kamloops, while
the North Bend yards will also be .enlarged.
With the -development of the fruit
growing'industry in the Okanagan, the
railway company will make extensions
to the wharves and buildings at Okanagan Landing and Kelowna, to facilitate
the handling of fruit traffic.
At Field a new boiler and engine house
will be erected, and at Revelstoke and
Nelson extensions and repairs will be
made to the shops.
Among the principal of the minor improvements will be improvements in the
handling of freight traffic in Vancouver,
Jeffries to Mix With the Coon.
Jim Jeffries has declared that he will
re-enter the ring to endeavor to grab
the world's pugilistic championship from
Jack Johnston, the negro heavyweight,
who won the title recently by "mussing up" Tommy Burns' pretty hair.
Jeff has planed an extensive theatrical tour, during which he intends to devote his time to getting into condition.

OF  LOCAL IMPORT
FIRE   BRIGADE   MEETING   HAS   A
SLIM   ATTENDANCE
Another Meeting on February 17th���
Slide Near Dot Delays the Local
"Flyer".���Lampreau is Sent
Up.For Trial.
We regret to s,iy that the meeting of
the Merritt volunteer fire brigade held
in Hyland hall on Wednesday evening
was very slimly attended. Considering
that such a worthy movement, of so
much importance to every citizen of
Merritt, is'just in its infancy, it was, to
say the least, disappointing to see such
a small turn-out at this meeting.
If we have our own best interests and
the best interests of our rising town at
heart we cannot allow enthusiasm in the
matter of fire protection to die a natural death, but must give our very best
efforts for its further promotion and encouragement.   ���
The attendance at Wednesday evening's meeting did not justify the adoption of any further measures, although
a number of ideas were advanced that
should meet with general approval when
a representative gathering can be assembled to takeactive steps as to establishing a fire-fighting brigade on a safe
and permanent basis.
Another meeting will be held Wednesday evening, Feb. 17th, when it is to be
hoped the' adult male population of
Merritt will turn out en masse to discuss plans for fire protection. This
is not a child's-play proposition and in a
young town like Merritt, with its clusters of frame houses and shacks, the
organizing of an efficient fire brigade is
a matter that should be taken in hand
at once.
Paste the date of the next meeting in
your sky-piece���Wednesday, Feb. 17th,
at 8 p.m., in Hyland hall.
Slide at Dot.
The train crew pulled in eight hours
late Wednesday, owhig to a landslide
a mile and a quarter below Dot, and -a
washout five miles and a quarter this
side of Spences Bridge. The tracks are
built close to the mountains at most
places, so that when slides occur traffic
is easily blockaded.
Half Breed Sent Up For Trial.
A half-breod by the name of Lampreau was sent up for trial at Nicola last
week on a chai-g e of breaking into the
cabin of ' 'Shorty ' Fessler and Steve
Edwards in the Stump lake section and
stealing therefrom a quantity of clothing, food, etc. Some of the goods were
found at Lampreau's sh��ck on the reserve at the time of his arrest. The
trial will come off at the Spring assizes
at Kamloops. The accused had only
recently been released from serving a
term at the Kamloops gaol.

Mine Closed Down.
An important feature of the Kootenay
mining situation is the closing down of
the Queen Victoria mine, situated about
six miles from Nelson. The Queen Victoria, a low-grade copper proposition
and one of the biggest in the district
outside of the Rossland mines, as far
as the extent of the lodes is concerned,
is bonded by a syndicate headed by F.
A. Erlund. The syndicate spent $60,-
000 on the property in development.' A
payment of $15,000 became due and Erlund threw up the bond. The property
now reverts to J. P. Swedburg, one of
the laesees of the Granite Mine, who
owns the Queen Victoria.

A. Faulds, M.E., Middlesboro.
Present Output of Nicola Valley Coal &
Coke Co. Will be Doubled Within
Three Months and Staff of
Men Reinforced
With the beginning of the present
month an important change has taken
place in the local official head of the
Nicola .Valley Coal & Coke company's
mines at Middlesboro. Alexander
Faulds, M. E., who has been the superintendent at Middlesboro ever since the
mines were first opened over two years
ago, has resigned and James Gray was
installed in his stead on Monday by W.
H, Armstrong, of Vancouver, general
manager of the company.
Mr. Gray, who has been connected
with coal mining for thirty-two years,
has had charge of ic-jnes in Scotland for
eighteen years and in Nova Scotia for
two years. From the latter province
Mr. Gray came to Nicola valley over
two years ago, and was connected with
various mining enterprises until entering the employ of the Nicola Valley Ooal
& Coke company last fall, where he has
since held responsible positions.
Mr. Gray holds the highest certificates
obtainable in the old country, and his
long experience in every branch of the
coal mining industry should make him a
valuable asset to the company in the capacity of superintendent. His son,
David Gray, assumed charge of No. 2
mine on Monday as foreman. Mr. Gray
expecta his wife and family to arrive
from Vancouver on today's train.
At present an average of 300 tons of
coal per day are being shipped from the
Middlesboro collieries, and the new superintendent is confident this output will
be doubled inside of three roonths. Some
220 hands r.re now employed at the mines
and this staff will be largely increased
in the near future.
Mr. Faulds, the late superintendent,
intends to leave the camp at the end of
February. He will not quit the mining
business, however, and after a few
weeks' holiday intends to accept one of
several positions he has been offered to
take charge of development work in
this country.

During the past week the weather
man has been trying to convince us
that Nicola valley belongs to the
banana belt.
Prohibitionists may campaign as
much as they like, but they'll
never stop the Manitoba mercury
taking a drop or two.
A St. Eouis paper comes out
with the statement that the day of
floods and blizzards and moonshine
whisky in Missouri is forever past.
You'll have to show us, by Heck.
The Grand Trunk Pacific is borrowing $5,000,000 more in London
and the Canadian government is
borrowing $30,000,000. It's a
great thing to stand in with a nice,
benevolent old gentleman like John
BulL        	
The future of Nicola valley is no
longer a matter of speculation.
Aside from its inexhaustible coal
mines and other mineral deposits,
great interest is now being centred
in fruit growing and general farming. In a few years the Nicola will
be famed for the products of its
fields and orchards, as well as for
its mineral wealth.
