Cases   of Hardman   and   Reid   Were
Concluded After Several Sessions
Held in Menzies' Hall
This Week
The board of conciliation sitting on
the cases of Jame^ Hardman and Wm.
Reid, former employees of the Nicola
Valley Coal & Coke company, convened on Monday evening in Menzies'
hall. The board was composed of T.
C. Brooke, representing the Miners'
Union; Thomas Kiddie, Representing
the company, and Judge Lampman, the
third member decided upon by the
government's appointees.
The deliberations of the board were
concluded Thursday morning, but no
decision was arrived at, an adjournment being made for the members to
meet in Vancouver on Tuesday next
when the final judgment on the two
cases under consideration will be given
out.
Judge Lampman and Thos. Kiddie
left on Thursday afternoon's train and
T. C. Brooke will leave tomorrow.
The evidence in the cases was all
given in a straightforward manner, and
several clashes on points occurred between the men's committee and that of
the company. However everything
was carried through peaceably and the
rulings of the board were respected by
all and there se��ins to be no doubt in
the minds of the large crowds which
attended the sessions that a fair and
impartial decision on the two cases will
be handed down on Tuesday next.
In the meantime, of course, the mines
will remain closed.
in, or if you do not feel like boosting,
step aside and make room for a more
worthy citizen. And if it hurts you>to
seethe town advancing, it will be more
to your advantage to get out than tp
sit around and knock. "No good sensible working bee listens to the advice
of bed-bug " On the subject of business and community advancement,
which are you? It is impossible to
boost one town to the disadvantage of
other towns in the district. The go-
ahead town helps the district and every
town in the district. It helps the district by helping itself���by attracting
paople and business to it. The individual that works hardest intelligently
climbs highest, morally and commercially. The sluggard is always in the
sump, morally and otherwise. So it is
with communities.���Walker's Weekly.

Miners May Strike
The conciliation board to investigate
the differences between the B. C. Copper company and its mine employees,
composed of Judge Wilson, of Cranbrook, John Mclnnis, M.P.P., of Phoenix and John Cronyn, of Toronto, concluded its sitting in Greenwood last
week and the members forwarded thei-
individual reports to the department of
labor at Ottawa.
The arbitration has not resulted in a
settlement. While a strike has not
been officially declared by the miners,
it is undoubtedly their intention to do
so should the company make an effort
to resume operations again. ��� Phoenix

Quits Work at 103
A Reno, Nevada, despatch *says:
When Stirling Arnold, a farmer near
here, reached the ripe age of 103 years,
he censed heavy work and his eldest
son, a mere lad of 80, is taking his
father's place in the fields. With the
elder brother are four other sons, tho
youngest of whom is 53. It is with
difficulty that Arnold could persuade
his wife to cease heavy work. She will
be 100 years old next month.
Arnold was born in South Carolina,
used tobacco all his life, but has abstained from liquors. Incidentally he
has baen a deacon of the Baptist
church for 84"syears.
Boost the Town You Live In
It pays to boost. When you boost
your town you are boosting yourself.
A knocker injures nobody so much as
he does himself. A booster helps nobody more than he does himself. A
community of boosters is a valuable
asset to any district. Boost! boost!!
boost!!!   Boost for the town you live

J. McLean is being tried at Kamloops
assizes this week on a murder charge.
Mary Lindley has been sent from  here
as a witness.
The board of trade will hold an adjourned meeting in Menzies' hall this
(Friday) night. Everyone interested
is earnestly requested to attend and
help along the good work of promoting
Merritt's best interests.
The fancy dress ball given by the
ladies' guild of St. John the Baptist
church, Nicola, in Pooley's hall last
Friday evening turned out to be a great
success both from a social and financial
standpoint. Refreshments were served
and everything done to provide the best
of entertainment for the large, jolly
crowd.
C. P. R. Will Not Build
C. P. R. authorities laugh at the report that that company intends to build
through Yellowhead pass, says a dispatch from Montreal.
Killed By Explosion
Alex. Watts and a Montenegrin were
instantly killed last Thursday by a premature explosion of a blast twenty five
miles from Prince Rupert.
Foundation  for   Merritt's  Firs*.  Skyscraper is Now Well Under Way.
Arrangements for Pavilion
Are Completed
A ceremony which will be looked
back to with great interest and gratification in future years was performed
on Saturday evening last. It was the
laying of the cornerstone of the building to be erected by the Merritt Athletic Club.
G. B. Armstrong, the president of
the club, opened the ceremonies and to
the large crowd of townspeople present
he explained the objects and aims of
the club in their endeavors to promote
athletics in the budding coal metropolis,
and to provide a suitable place of meeting where these objects and aims can
be promulgated in a practical way.
Mr. Armstrong referred to patriotism
of the citizens in assisting the club to
the extent of making such a building
possible. He paid a nice tribute to the
old timers and the future of the valley
and referred to Mrs. U. S. Thomas
as the "grand old lady" of Merritt, she
being one of the first ladies in the
townsite, and the suggestion that she
be the one to lay the corner stone was
received with unanimous approval.
After a fine selection from the Merritt
orchestra Mrs. Thomas then proceeded
to conclude the main object of the
gathering. A copy of the current issue
of The Nicola Herald was first placed
in the stone and then Mildred Hygh and
Jennie Mclntyre, the young daughters
of our two popular hotel proprietors,
each dropped in a two-bit piece. Mrs.
Thomas then manipulated the trowel
and smoothed over the cement that caps
the climax of the corner stohe of Merritt's first public building.
Game Protection
In a reply to the petition of the Merritt Athletic club committee with regard to the better protection of game
in this district, the provincial game
warden has sent a reply in which he
states that the bounty on coyotes will
shortly be raised to ��3.00. At present
he cannot see his way clear to appoint
a salaried game warden as yet, but the
situation here has been occupying his
attention for some time, and that a
salaried man will be appointed before
long somewhere in the Okanagan or
Nicola, who will be able to visit this
section from time to time, for a limited
period, in the meantime efforts will
be made to improve existing conditions.
High Land at Spences Bridge
Two men were fishing in a rowboat
on the Thompson river near Spences
Bridge one day last week when they
had the unique and rather startling experience of suddenly hearing a big
splash close to the boat. Looking to
ascertain the cause of this unusual
commotion, they saw a man struggling
in the water. To save his life they
dragged him aboard and anxiously enquired as to where on Jarth he came
from. The rescued man, seemingly
more perplexed than disturbed, pointed
up to a high bluff hanging over the
bank of the river, replied: ' 'Say, gentlemen, I must thank you, but, by the
great horn spoon, this is the third time
I've fallen off my ranch to-day. I'm
Jim Williamson, who used to be the
thirst-quencher at the Coldwater hotel
in Nicola valley's coal metropolis.'
Sick of Orientals
The Daily News, of Westminster,
says: President McRae, of Fraser
River Lumber Co., says they are now
through and for ever with all Oriental
labor. He says they work with a
single eye to doing the minimum in the
most inefficient manner. Hindus at a
dollar a day are not nearly so good an
investment as Greeks at double that
wage. He is arranging for an importation of a French-Canadian colony. He
says he will give them land, build churches and do everything to satisfy them.
Heavy Head Tax
Ten million dollars is the price paid
by Abdul Hamid, deposed sultan of
Turkey, for the privilege of retaining
his head according to a statement in
last week's Stampa.
The paper says that Abdul has authorised Enver Bey, a young Turk,
money from his deposits in foreign
leader, to draw this fabulous sum of
banks. The money will be turned into
the treasury of the new government
and in return the former sultan will
not be executed.

Walking on a Wager
Starl Cronley, the champion walker,
who is circulating the border line of the
United States on a wager, arrived in
Merritt last Friday after having covered
the distance around the coast from
Gray's Harbor. Cronley left Toledo,
Ohio, on October 25th, 1907, on a wager
of $2000 that he could walk the distance
before June 1st, 1910. He carries only
the clothing on his back, a small knapsack containing the records of his trip
and a rifle. He measures his distance
with a pedometer, and makes the total
miles tramped to Merritt 9746 1-2. From
Merritt he left for Princeton and will
keep along the boundary line back to
Toledo, O. Cronley is not supposed to
beg, borrow or steal, but will need
have no concern as to the success of
his undertaking if other places prove as
equally as hospitable as Merritt. THE  NICOLA  HERALD

A LAND POLICY
In connection with an excellent
article on the agricultural potentialities of the province, "Bruce,"
in the Saturday Sunset, has the
following to say, iu part:
"The business interest of Vancouver should make a study of this
question. If it is taken up in an
earnest and intelligent way I am
convinced that the districts of the
Similkameen,Nicola, Boundary and
Kootenays will be found identical
with those of the business interests
of Vancouver. Those districts constitute one of the richest and best
known sections of British Columbia
and yet, so far as trade with Vancouver is concerned, they might as
well be in the Middle States, with
the exception of the Lower Nicola.
The Similkameen, Keremeos,Boundary and Kootenays do more trading with Washington cities than
they do with Vancouver, simply
because they have better transportation facilities to the south of the
line than they have to Vaucouver,
and in some cases the only transportation they have is to the south.
It must also be argued, upon the
government that not only is a progressive railway policy consisting
of advantageous routes required,
but a road building policy and a
land settlement policy is of the
greatest importance. It should be
impressed upon the government
that Vaucouver is dead earnest in
this matter, and that no more pro-
castination, jollying or side-stepping will be tolerated.
SQUIBOGRAPHS
Now, all together.
Nine members of the lower house
of the Japanese diet were recently
arrested. The nature of the charges
against them is withheld, but they
are thought to be connected with
the recent Japan Sugar company
scandal, the investigation of which
showed the accused to be guilty of
a number of questionable transactions. The disclosures caused a
drop of from 50 to 60 points in the
price of the company stock, and
many holders have been ruined. It
is generally believed that the investigations also demonstrated the
existence of bribery in-the diet.
All the arrested members belonged
to the dominant political party.
Let other poets twang their lyres
and sing of budding trees, and babbling brooks and hummingbirds
and bumbling bumblebees, but I
will swat my trusty harp, and make
a fancy pass, and sing a joyous
madrigal concerning garden sass.
O garden sass! Sweet garden sass!
The lettuce and the peas! The
onion from the grocery, that scents
the evening breeze! Let poets feed
on roses and let cattle feed on
grass, I'll break a dozen harpstrings
with my song of garden sass! O
bring me fifty radishes and forty-
seven beets; and let us boil some
spinach when the blooming water
heats; and bring the stuff that vulgar folk describe as sparrowgrass,
for I am tired of singing and I
want some garden sass!���Walt

You  say you're tired  of the things

The  streets you  walk, and the songs

And  your  soul's   in  need of  a dry
shampoo. ,
You've said that you ache  for elbow;

For a look at the stars at least;
You've said you're tired of the poppycock
And pink tea air of the east.
Come out where the plains go rolling
west
From   the   lakes   to    the    Rockies'
peaks,
Where the soul of the wheatland sings
at dusk,
And the voice of the prairie  speaks.
Come out  where  there's song to be
sung again,
Where Youth and To-day rejoice;
You need the wine of the west in you���
And the west, it needs a voice.

CHIPS FROM THE BLOCK
A Line-up on What is Doing in Near-by
Districts and Throughout British
Columbia Generally
Twins have been born at Revelstoke.
Watch Revelstoke grow.
Ashcroft grows winter apples in the
winter.   That's going some.
Enderby is celebrating Victoria day���
and everyday if Bro. Walker is authentic:
Hon. F. J. Fulton, minister of public
works, was married last week to Miss
Winifred Davie.
Judge SpinkS will retire from the
bench, on the usual pension, his resignation to take effect this year.
Joe Martin having left, he is not
necessarily forgotten. Absence makes
the picture postcards accumulate.
Hon. Edgar Dewdney, so well known
throughout the province celebrated his
83rd birthday on Thursday of last week.
For the first time in years Princeton
will not celebrate Dominion day. The
burg seems to be on the train that carries the bacon.
A cent belt moral wave has hit the
sloppy slope. It is now a criminal offense to play baseball or marbles in
Vancouver on Sunday.
A Chink, named Wing, was arrested
and imprisoned at Windermere last
week for committing an indecent assault
upon the four year old daughter of Mr.
Chamberlain.
The Advertiser says A. Gates was in
Armstrong  last week.   This does not
appear    quite     grammatical.      "Th
gates" would listen more like it, being
he is a married man.
Seventy feet of open cut has been
driven on the Greenwood-Phoenix tunnel. It is anticipated before the completion of the tunnel that any high-
grade ore will be taken out to defray
the cost.
Miss E. Rogers, for over twenty
years principal of the Girls' Central
school yesterday tendered her resignation to the board trustees, this step
being prompted by the state of her
mother's health. The trustees regretfully accepted the resignation, which
will take effect at the end of the present term. ��� Ashcroft Journal.
Walkers Weekly says : Col. Lowery
proposes "in order to make Greenwood
a lively town, to shortly commence the
publication of the names of all the men
in the Boundary who have been in the
habit of hugging their cooks, chambermaids, typewriters, and other ladies
they have no right to." Colonel Lowery
does not state whether he or Jim will
head the list.
The first draft of the stationing committee at the Methodist conference for
Kamloops district awards as follows:
Kamloops, O. M. Sanford; North
Thompson, H. Hobbins; Nicola, J. W.
Hedley; Ashcroft, T. II. Wright; Revelstoke, T. W. Hall; Golden, W. W.
Bromwich. This is subject to revision..
Rev. James Calvert was elected president of the conference.
Ashcroft Journal: C. A. Semlin had
the misfortune to loose several of his
pure-bred cattle in a rather peculiar
manner last Monday. The cattle had
been grazing on the high bluffs opposite Bute Ranch when some cause, as
yet not determined, moved them to try
descending the face of the bluff. Seven
of them landed at the bottom in short
order of which four were killed and
three saved. The remainder were rescued from their precarious foothold on
tho face of the bluff by Semlin's men
digging a path back to safety. A theory
advanced by one cattleman was that
the cattle nest known as the Heelily
had stampeded them over the bluff.
