Most  Build   Sawmills   and   Operate.
B. O. Lumber and Mrnufacturers
Association Protest Against
the Order.
Every owner of timber lands
in British Columbia, whether
the holdings be povincial or
dominion, is interested in the
order recently issued by Ottawa that forthwith lesses of
dominion timber lands must
start logging off each leasehold
and must also build and operate sawmills.
The order practically amounts
to confiscation, according to
Vancouver lumbermen who
hold dominion leases. The
matter was discussed at a meeting of the British Columbia
Lumber & Shingle Manufacturers' Association, many of
the' members of which hold
timber lands in the railway belt
along the lower Fraser river
valley which is the only locality
where large areas of timber are
affected.
The federal goxernment has
intimated that it might reconsider the order that mills should
be built to cut the timber taken
off dominion lands and permit
the lesses to sell to mills already built.
SCHOOL   MEETING.
A school meeting has been
called by the education department tor Tuesday, April 21st,
at 10 a. m. for the purpose of
electing school trustees for the

teachers salary and the people
paying incidental exdenses.

had treated. Tom agreed to

proscution was stopped.
First Canadian Coin.
The first shipment of silver coin
was made from the Canadian mint
on Thursday last, a total of $24,-
000 being sent to various parts of
the country. The money was

HERBERT ASQUITH NOW PREMIER
OF GREAT BRITAIN.
The Federal Elections ��� May Be Postponed Until  After Another Session of Parliament.���Immigrants for B. O.
The vacancy in the office of
Prime Minister of Great Britain caused by the resignation
last Sunday of Sir Henry
Campbell-Bannerman on account of ill health, was filled
Wednesday morning at Biarritz, France, during the audience
between King Edward and
Herbert Asquith.
Mr. Asquith first tendered to
His Majesty his resignation as
Chancellor of the Exchequer,
and immediately thereafter he
kissed the hand of the King on
his. appointment to the post of

of the Treasury
IMMIGRANTS FOR B. C.

people, and the majority intend to take up farming.
About two hundred of the
immigrants are for points in
the Northwest, and a hundred
and fifty for Britiih Columbia
sections.
The second contingent of the
Salvation Army emigrants will

NO  REDUCTION.
Will Permit Danolng.
The New York conference of the
Methodist Episcopal church had an important session Tuesday at which several matters of moment to the church
were debated and acted upon. One
subject that created much comment was
the resolution advising the general conference that paragraph 248 of the church
discipline which advises against dancing,
card playing and theatre-going be eliminated was adopted by an almost unanimous vote. To the general surprise
there was no debate on this important
question. It was simply taken up, and
a vote called found only seven delegates
had recorded ��� their votes against the
resolution.
According to an official explanation given out in Winnipeg by the C. P. R. authorities
at that point, and communicated by wire to the general superintendent of the Pacific division.
It is not the intention of the
company to reduce the maximum rate of wages paid any
of the shopmen at points west
of Fort William.
May Be Another Session.
Senator Lougheed, who returned to
Calgary recently from Ottawa, stated
that it looked like an election this year
until the report of the civil service commission, but now there is some doubt,
and it is regarded as probable that
there will be another session. THE   NICOLA HERALD

Conventions tor the nomination of candidates for Yale-
Cariboo will be held at Vernon
this month. The nominee of
the Conservative party will in
all probability be Martin Bur-
rel; Duncan Ross the Liberal.
Our Peterboro correspondent in his letter this week has
some remarks to make on the
value to the retailer of local advertising that are sound and to
the point, says the Canadian
Grocer. We would like to see
more attention given to this
phase of the grocery business,
and to that end invite our
friends to give us their experience and suggestions. Given
two grocers in a small town���
one of them a regular advertiser in the local paper, and the
other advertising spasmodically
or not at all���and it is not a
difficult matter to pick the winner with precision. To the retailer who is just starting in
business, this method of announcing himself a candidate
for trade is the surest, safest,
and in fact the only way which
can be relied upon to attract to
himself the attention of the
people he most desires to reach.
The initial expense to which
he will put is merely nominal
compared with the amount of
money he would waste by sitting down and waiting for busi-
ntss to come to him. Let him
at the outset engage a small
space in his paper and fill it
'with new copy every day or
week, as he can afford. Nothing so surely illustrates the pro-
gressiveness of a man as the
amount of advertising he is
able to do.
WATER RECORDS.
The battle between the province and the dominion as to
which has the jurisdiction to
grant water records on streams
within the railway belt has already occupied five days in the
hearing of evidence and promises to last two more.
The evidence appears to be
as much in conflict as the contentions of the parties, the
dominion government on one
side and the province and Bur
rard Power company on the
other, the federal authorities
disputing the right of the province to grant the company's
application for a record of 25,-
000 inches on the Lillooet
river. Upon the report which
Justice Martin will make the
exchequer court at Ottawa will
render a decision which will no
doubt be carried to the privy
council.
Messrs. Beaudette & Conklin have
opened a livery, feed and sales stable,
on Nicisla avenue, and are prepared to
attend to any business in their line.
A number of new livery rigs will be on
hand in a few days and several first
class horses will be added to the barn.
If you want a livery rig Beaudette &
Conklin can supply same.
