Doukhobors For B. O.
The Doukhobors are to inflict their
presence upon British Columbia.
For some timo the prairie provinces
have been anxious to get rid of these
most undesirable settlers, who make
periodical marches through the country
in something less than fig-leaf costume
searching for some mythical Messiah.
As a starter they are bundling off a
colony to British Columbia���as if this
province didn't have her immigration
troubles "good and plenty" already.
A Winnipeg despatch says that one
hundred Doukhobor men have left
Broadview, Sask., for the new colony
to start on the 2,700 acres recently purchased by Peter Vergin, at the junction
of the Columbia and Kootenay rivers,
28 miles southwest of Nelson. They are
taking their supplies with them, including a carload of flour, also horses and
cattle. They will plant a lot of vegetables to furnish supplies for next winter.

It is their intention to survey
up the Coldwater river to ascertain which is the better route
for the railway to go. Last

worked trom Nicola up Quil
chena creek to Aspen Grove.
They   have   already    com
menced work and will continue
on up the river until Aspen
Grove section is reached.
The route by way oi Cold
water  is considerably shorter
than by way of Quiichena and
a good grade can be secured'.
EXCURSION TO COAL MINES.
The excursion train arranged by
the Nicola Coal and Coke Company
for a party of business men to visit
their coal mines, we learn will consist of five sleepers and a diner.
All available space in the cars has
been secured.
The party will arrive at the mine
Saturday night, the 16th inst., remaining all next day and returning
to Vancouver Sunday evening.

to show the Vancouverites that
Nicola has a first-class coal mine,
but they will be able to see the new
town of Merritt.

learn is, that the man of modest means,

ITEMS OF INTEREST
LICENSE FEB IMPOSED ON SALMON
FISHING.
Movement to Advertise Canada at the
Franco-British Exposition.-Elections May Be in September
���Nelson News Sold.
The provincial government has imposed a license fee of $2.50 on all persons
fishing for salmon throughout the province. The time of fishing is regulated
also, a close period over Sunday being
provided. This is the next active step
of the local authorities in their effort to
assert jurisdiction of the fisheries.
To Advertise Canada.
The C.P.R. company has taken a large
space at the Franco-British exposition,
which is to be held in London, for the
purpose of advertising Canada. The
company is asking the co-operation of
the various boards of trade throughout
the Dominion.
News Changes Hands.
F. J. Deane, of the Nelson Daily
News, the leading daily of southern
British Columbia, announced his retirement from the paper last Friday morning and the purchase of the paper by a
syndicate represented by W. G. McMorris, the business manager.
In his valedictory, Mr. Deane says
that he has been forced to retire for
want of capital.
Election Rumors.
The latest election rumors in best informed circles are that an understanding has been arrived at between Laur-
ier and Gouin, providing that Quebec
elections shall not occur in June, but
that both federal and provincial shall
be held in September.
On the eve of prorogation the government has sprung upon the house a bill
respecting subsidies to certain railway
companies, involving the grants of nearly two and a half million acres of the
public domain.
These railway grants constitute the
customary bait for votes in Quebec, and
almost invariably mark the last session
of the legislature.
Old Country Lock-Out.
A Glasgow despatch says: The Clyde
shipbuilders on Saturday locked out one
thou, and wood workers from their yards.
Yards in the United Kingdom and workmen in other branches are being locked
out. There may be a complete stoppage
of the shipbuilding industry, which
would indirectly affect no less than
250,000  men.
Last Sunday Rev. T. H. Wright conducted service at Merritt and Middlesboro. The yearly meeting of the board
was held at Nicola on Monday, Rev.
Mr. Wright, presiding, when officers
were elected for the ensuing year. A
gratifying increase of members was reported.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The man who always has his
hammer out is really knocking
only  himself.
Nicola Valley ere many years
will be the banner one of the province. With its extensive cattle
ranches, fruit and produce, coal nnd
copper mines, everything is within
its borders to accomplish this.
What it needs is push and enterprise by its citizens. Live and let
live and build up the district.
Victoria Day, May 25th, will see
the first public celebration to be
held at Merritt. the coming coal
metropolis, and a perusal of the
day's program and the prizes offered shows that much credit is due so
young a camp for the enterprise and
patriotism displayed. Crowds will
come from all over the valley to
Merritt's initial demonstration.
The feeling is prevalent throughout the whole dominion that it is
time for a change of government.
With the many previous charges
against the Laurier administration,
the result of the civil service commission has been a stunner, and
now comes Major Hodgins with
charges of graft in the construction
of the government portion of the
G. T. P. Verily, the way of the
transgressor is hard.
With the coming of summer considerable work will be done throughout the district on mineral claims.
Many good copper properties will
be shown up this year to better advantage, owing to the transportation facilities being better than
heretofore. It is only a question
of a short time, besides the coal
companies operating on a large
scale, that many mineral properties
will be in the shipping class, and
employing a large number of men.
The liberals of Yale-Cariboo have
re-nominated Duncan Ross, M. P.,
to contest the district for the party,
says John Houston in the last number of the Empire. Mr. Ross was
for a time a school teacher, then
worked as a newspaper reporter in
Victoria, then became the owner
of a weekly newspaper at Greenwood. Finally, he became a politician, and was elected a member
of parliament at the last general election. As a school teacher he
spent his salary of $65 a month; as
a newspaper reporter, he spent his
salary of $18 a week; as the owner
of the Greenwood Tinas, he spent
his income of $100 a month. As a
member of parliament, he has been
living, so he is reputed as Baying,
"at the rate of $40,000 a year," on
a parliamentary salary of $2500.
In parliament he was the champion
of Jim Hill's Great Northern railway and won a hard-fought battle
in the railway committee, defeating
the Canadian Pacific subsidized retainers by one vote. It took hard
work and a "sack" of $60,000 t.
If the people of Yale-Cariboo elect
Mr. Ross for a second term, they
will have no one to blame but themselves, for most of them know Mr.
Ross is not in parliament for his
health.
