WATER   QUESTION
IRRIGATION    CONVENTION   MEETS
ON AUGUST 10TH.
Experts  Will   Gather   at   Vernon  to
Discuss This Important Question.
Federal  House   Prorogues
After Long Session.
In accordance with the arrangements
made at the last irrigation convention,
the executive board has already held
several meetings to settle details in
connection with the coming gathering
which, it has been decided, will be held
at Vernon during the week beginning
Monday August 10.
It is expected that a most interesting
programme will be carried out which,it
is hoped, papers from Prof. L. G. Carpenter, director and proffessor of irrigation, Colorado Agricultural College,
Fort Collins, Col., Senator W. C Edwards, A. E. Ashcroft, C. E. of Coldstream; J. S. Dennis, of Calgary, and
others. Another important feature will
be the comprehensive discussion of water
legislation.
It has also been arranged to charter
a steamer and give the delegates a trip
down Okanogan Lake, stopping at various points to view the system of irrigation now in operation or in process
of construction. This three-day excursion down the lake should be one of
the most attractive features in connection with the convention.
At the last convenion held there was
no representative from Nicola Valley.
This is a mistake and a meeting should
be called at an early date as possible to
send a delegate. The question of irrigation is a very important one for
Nicola Valley and a voice from this
section would no. doubt be very acceptable at the convention. The Farmers'
Institute could take the initiative and
arrange for a selection of a delegate.
Macpherson Prefers Postoffice.
J. H. Senkler is the likely candidate
in the Liberal interests for Vancouver
at the coming elections. R. G. Macpherson, the present representative, is
slated for the postmastership of the
Terminul   city.
Silverthorne-Brwin
The wedding was solemnized on Friday evening last at the residence of J.
Grantham, 710 Westminster avenue,
Vancouver, of James Byron Silverthorne
and Miss Effle Jane Erwin. The groom
is a resident of Bulkley valley and the
bride of Point Atkinson. Mr. and Mrs.
H. Silverthorne supported the bride
and groom. They have left for Bulkley
valley and intend making it their future
home.
Mr. Silverthorne is well known in this
section and for some time resided at
Aspen Grove, where he has a number of
mining interests.
Valley Ooal Company.
A company has been organized in Vancouver called the Valley Coal Company,
for the purpose of handling the exclusive agency of the product of the Nicola
Valley Coal & Coke Company. The
company consists of the following: F.
H. Lantz, president; H. A. Stewart,
vice-president and general manager; A.
F. Salsbury, director. and secretary-
treasurer.
Farmers' Institute.
A meeting of the Nicola Farmers' Institute was held at Merritt on Tuesday
afternoon and evening and at Nicola on
Wednesday afternoon and evening.
Thos. A. Brydon gave addresses on
fruit growing, while Dr. Sparrow attended to horses and cattle. These
meetings are very instructive and should
be .attended by all. The information
given is of much importance to a district
like Nicola valley. Dr. Sparrow and
Mr. Brydon left on today's train for the
coast.
Mrs. R. W. W. Reid returned this
week trom a trip to Nancouver.
ITEMS OF INTEREST
WESTMINSTER  ONE  GOAL  AHEAD
IN MINTO OUP CONTEST.
Twelve Tears as Premier.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier last Wednesday
completed his twelfth year as pilot of
Canada's ship of state. He was sworn
in as first minister on July 13th, 1906.
Nicola School.
Second  Game  of   Westminster Shamrocks on Saturday.���Government
Road and Bridse Gangs Doing Good Work.
With their, whirlwind combination of
play the New Westminster lacros
team, champions of the west and challengers for the Minto cup, won the first
game at the Mile End-grounds at Montreal on Tuesday by 6 goals to 5.
The game was a fast one from every
point of view, showing at times perhaps
the greatest exhibition of lacrosse ever
seen either east or west of the Rocky
mountains.
Another game will be played next
Saturday, the majority of goals in the
two games winning the cup.
At the annual public school meeting
held at Nicola last week the following
were elected trustees: M. L. Grimmett,
A. R. Carrington and S. Kirby; auditor,
H. H. Matthews.
The amount to be raised by assessment will be $360.
The school affairs are in a satisfactory condition, and much praise was given Miss Murray, the teacher, for her
efforts in keeping up a high standard of
education in the school.
Arrangements will be made for a new
school site and a larger building, as at
present the school building is filled to
its full capacity.
Federal  House  Prorogues.
With prorogation at noon Monday the
236days' session of ha Dominion parliament of Canada has concluded its labors.
The expectation of a general election
coming in the fall is general on both
sides of the house of commons, although
the government supporters have separated without anything more from
headquarters than an injunction to get
ready.
Origin of " Canada "
The origin of the word "Canada" is
curious enough. The Spaniards visited
this country previous to the French, and
made particular search for gold and silver, and finding none they often said
among themselves "aca nada"���there
is nothing here. The Indians who
watched closely, learned this sentence
and its meaning. The French arrived,
and the Indians, who wanted none of
their company, and supposed they were
also Spaniards come out on the same
errand, were anxious to inform them
in the Spanish sentence "aca nada."
The French, who knew as little of the
Spanish language as the Indians, supposed this incessantly recurring sound
was the name of the country and gave it
the name of Canada, which it has borne
ever since. Canada was discovered by
John and Sebastian Cabot in 1497.
H. Goodisson returned on Monday
from Victoria and is sojourning at
Nicola.
The Merritt postoffice has been made
a money order office and the receipts of
same have been steadily growing.
Quiichena is an ideal place to spend
an outing, and the management of the
Quiichena hotel have decided to continue
their special Sunday dinners. In another column is published the bill of
fare for Sunday, the 26th.
Government Improvements
Work on the bridge across the Nicola
river at Merritt is progressing rapidly
and by next week will be ready to be
used for traffic.
Foreman Dundas with his gang arrived this week and has been busy fixing
up and cleaning out the trunk road. At
present he has his men at w^rk on the
new road to connect the bridge. After
leaving the bridge the road runs diagonally across Conklin's field to the hill and
connects with the present road about
the middle of Murray's place.
Foreman Fitzgerald, of the bridge
crew, when finished here movea to C.
D. Collett's place, where a new bridge
will be built across the Nicola.
Considerable improvements will be
made on the roads in the valley and a
lot of new work will be done.
Now that the main roads under the
government's care are being fixed up,
why not something be done to the streets
in the town of Merritt ?
Lower Nicola School,
At the annual school meeting held at
Lower Nicola last week the following
were elected as trustees: D. Dodding,
F. G. Paige and R. Whittaker; auditor,
H. S. Cleasby.
The amount to be raised bv assessment in this district will be $240.

Work is going steadily along at Middlesboro colleries and a number more
men have been put to work. Coal shipments have again commenced. This
week sixteen cars were shipped and
from now on the number will be considerably increased.

Men are at work at the Diamond Vale
Colleries' property making preparations
for the resumption of operations on a
large scale, which is expected to take
place in about a week's time. Work is
still going on at the company's prospect
in the Garcia pasture.
Joseph Goldsworthy, of Vancouver,
who was for some time engaged with
the Diamond Vale Coal company at
Merritt, was married at Vancouver last
week to Miss Isabel Mitchell McGregor,
of. Aberdeen, Scotland. Mr. Golds-
worthy's many friends in this section
wish him every happiness.
The graft of the Oriental underboss,
inbred by ages of autocratic rule of the
ignorant coolie, was throttled by the
management of the Royal City mills at
Vancouver on Monday, and the heads of
three employees were lopped off. Two
of the dicmissed Oriental bosses were
Japanese and the third a Hindu.
It is reported that as a result of an
investigation extending over a period of
a month the management of the mills
discovered that among the Oriental employees a well arranged system of enforced payment of tribute money to the
Japanese and Hindu bosses was in vogue
on a gigantic scale. Practically every
Oriental employed about the mills had
paid for his position and was still paying monthly tithe to those immediately
over him.
It is the belief of sawmill men generally that this iniquitous system of graft
is in vogue in practically every sawmill
in British Columbia where Orientals are
employed.
Insurance Against Bryan.
A London despatch says : Lloyds is
writing risks against the election of
Bryan for the U. S. presidency, having
placed over half a million for Wall Street
since last Tuesday. The rate is ten per
cent. Old time brokers and financiers
who wish to protect against a possible
stock slump in the event of Bryan's election take the policies. Applications for
a million more similar policies have been
received.
Mrs. M. L. Grimmett and children
returned Monday from Vancouver.
J. A. M. Faulds, of the Middlesboro
colleries has been spending his holidays
at the coast.
Rev. L. W. Hall, of Nelson, is visiting in Nicola valley, where some years
ago he was stationed. He is the guest
of A. R. Carrington of Nicola.
The marriage of W. E. Dodd, C.P.R.
engineer on the Nicola branch, and Miss
Jennie Woodward, daughter of H. H.
Woodward, will be solemnized at Lower
Nicola on Saturday morning.
EXTENSION  OF NICOLA RAILWAY
ON THB LIST.
J. C. Stewart, carpenter at Middlesboro colleries, left for Spences Bridge
this morning on receiving word of the
serious illness of his seven-months-old
son at the family home there.
A gathering of members of the A. F.
& A. M. was held at Nicola on Wednesday evening to meet A. H. Skey, of
Kamloops, the D. D. G. M. The Nicola
valley brethren have applied to the
grand lodge for a dispensation, which
will shortly be issued.
Subsidies  to the Extent of Thirteen
Million Dollars Passed by Dominion Government. ��� Average $6,400 Per Mile.
Railway subsidies to the value of over
thirteen millions were passed by the
Dominion Government last week. In
all 70 companies are assisted, of which
26 are re-votes and 44 new subsidies.
The Government is going to rebuild
the Quebec bridge, one resolution empowering it "to take over the whole
undertaking, assets, property and franchises of the Quebec Railway & Bridge
Company.''
There are several other railway aid
propositions of importance. The bonds
of the Edmonton Yukon & Pacific Railway are guaranteed by the Government at 3 1-2 per cent, for 150 miles at
$14,000 per mile for the first 50 miles
and $25,000 per mile for the remainder.
The line runs from Edmonton westward, and is part of the Canadian Northern's transcontinental system.
Bonds are also guaranteed for 639
miles of Canadian Northern branch
lines in Manitoba and the North-west,
the guarantee being for $13,000 per
mile for 50 miles at 3 1-2 per cent.
The new subsidies cover 2,151 miles
which at minimum subsidies for $3,200
per mile, would represent $7,083,200,
while the re-votes of 1,673 miles at a
minimum amount to $5,369,600.
Then there are subsidies to bridges
amounting to $800,000, including $200,
000 to bridge Burrard Inlet.
In many cases the double subsidy will
doubtless be earned, but even at the
minimum, the total subsidies represent
a sum of $13,252,600, and the bond
guarantees cover $11,067,000.
The following are some of the subsidies: The Vancouver & Lulu Island
Railway Company, from Eburne to New
Westminster, 9.65 miles.
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway Company, from French Creek to Sandwich,
41 miles, and from Sandwich to Campbell River 38 miles.
Vancouver Island & Eastern Railway
Company, from Campbell River to Fort
George on the line of the Grand Trunk
Pacific Railway, 100 miles.
Vancouver, Westminster & Yukon
Railway Company, from Vancouver towards Fort George, 100 miles.
Railway around Death Rapids, B. C,
4 miles.
Pacific, Northern & Omineca Railway
Company, from Kittimaat to the Telk-
wa River, 110 miles.
Railway from Nicola to Penticton, 100
miles.
Railway from Carmi to Penticton, 50
miles.
Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway Company, from Cowichan Bay to Cowichan
Lake, 24 miles.
John Cowley met with a painful accident while working on the diamond
drill at the B. C. Amalgamated property yesterday. Mr. Cowley was standing close to a steam pipe which suddenly burst and he was knocked down by
the force of the escaping steam, which
severely burned him about the body.
Medical aid was at once summoned and
the unfortunate patient is doing as well
as can be expected, but he will be confined to the house for some time.
Admiration alone will not run a newspaper. Sooner or later such admirers
will find that the object of their affections
has become wedded to other ways that
they do not admire���in other words, a
newspaper is compelled in order to live,
to seek the friendship of those who are
not so platonic in their love but unite
j their practical esteem with sentiment that
! binds mutual admiration in other pro-
j fessions. There are too many men who
expect an editor to slave in defense of
their pet notions and hobbies, advocate
their views against the strongest apposition, and cooly with-hold the business,
support by which alone a small newsr-
paper can live. THE   NICOLA    HERALD

Merritt, B.C., July 23, 1908.
The federal elections in Yale-
Cariboo district are to be postponed.
A date will be set by the returning
officer. The delaying of the election in this constituency is one of
the privileges which the government has, but by so doing it does
not give a square deal to the electorate. With the conditions existing at present there is no necessity
of a bye-election. In times past
before railroads and telegraphic
communication netted the district,
there was some excuse, but now it
is used to enable the government to
elect a candidate on the mere fact
that it may be returned to power,
by securing a number of the doubtful voters. Of the injustice of such
a course nothing need be said ; it is
purely apolitical dodge, as the elections could be as easily held on the
same date as in other constituencies. The Liberal candidate for
Kootenay declared a short time ago
that he was in favor of the election
in his district being held with the
others. But not with Duncan Ross ;
he opposed any attempt of such a
course, and the government, in
fear of losing this seat, defeated
Mr. Borden's amendment. At the
last general election, everyone who
was in touch with the district at
that time knows that but for this
move Martin Burrill would have
been elected. As it was, with all
the prestige of a government victory, he was only defeated by a small
majority. The election which will
take place this fall will tell a different tale; the electors will turn
out in force and Martin Burrill will
be returned by a substantial majority.      	
The Chinese merchants of Vancouver and Victoria are making a
big roar with regard to the bill
passed last week concerning the
suppression of the opium traffic.
Coast newspapers are giving prominence to threats of boycott and
other drastic steps to be taken by
the brethern of the slant-eye and
pig-tail in consequence of the passing of this law. The dealers claim
they should have been given ten
years' notice, whereas the government is giving them three months'
time to clear their stock. The celestials are almost paralytic over
the "gross injustice" of such a
course, and demand six months at
least. One of the arguments they
use is that many deaths will result
as three month are not sufficient
time for the slaves of the dope-pipe
to taper off. This proves that the
vice should have been prohibited
years ago. Chinese who have the
"yen-yen" so deep-rooted as this
would leave the country far better
off by their absence, and their deportation expenses could well be
afforded. The white victims are
usually tin-horn gamblers and prostitutes, whom medical science could
keep above the surface as long as
would be generally desirable. It
is strange that there are always
those who, otherwise intelligent,
will stand by a Chink or Jap in any
contention, no matter how absurd.
The pernicious effects of smoTdng
the little, cooked pills of poison are
greater than those of almost any
other evil in the laud ; it breeds degeneracy of the lowest type ; it
. abounds in dens of disease and filth;
it enfetters with a grip ten-fold more
deadly than alcohol. The opium-
smoking habit was propagated here
by the Chinaman, and is being fostered by him; he has reaped big
profits to the demoralization of the
community. By what right or
reason, then, does he howl for
quarter when the country awakens
to a sense of its duty with regard to
this growing abomination ? Where
are the moral attributes of those
who say the Chink has a grievance ?
The amount of capital represented
by the stock of poppy-juice on hand
at the coast cities is about $60,000.
Instead of airing the preposterous
position taken by the Chinese the
newspapers would have been combining self-respect with common-
sense and justice had they enjoined
the government to have the vile
traffic discontinued instanterby refunding the duty on the stock on
hand and confiscating the dope,
which might be stored in the dream
room of the Senate.
