MERRITT, B. C, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 1908
$2 a Year.
POLITCS   STARTED
FIRST   POLITICAL   GATHERING   IN
CAMPAIGN.
Duncan Ross, ex-Member For This District Holds Meetings   In   Nicola
Valley  Accompanied   by-
Stuart Henderson.
The political campaign was opened in
Nicola Valley on Thursday evening last
when Duncan Ross, ex-member for the
district addressed a meeting at Merritt
and the following evening at Nicola.
At the  Merritt meeting G. B. Armstrong  acted  as chairman and after a
few remarks called on Mr. Ross.   He
began with   a few complimentary remarks in reference to Merritt and then
endeavored to place his side of politics
and position in the best  light possible.
He   has   improved   much   as a   public
speaker since the last campaign.    During his speech he contrasted conditions
and volume of business in 1896 with the
present and  attributed every improve,
ment   and   prosperity   to the   Liberal
government.    He  dwelt   lightly   with
the G. T. P. railway, and  accused the
Conservatives as being hostile to this
railway and everything  else  excepting
the   C. P. R.    He   claimed all   honors
for himself for having the Nicola branch
built, owing to his fight in   the rai'vey
committee for the V. V. & E.  concessions.    His discussion of  the "Better
Terms" question was very tame and it
is evident that Mr. Ross has forgotten
that the people read and follow the proceeding of parliament  and keep posted
on important matters.    He likened Mc-
Bride and Cowan  as beggars trying to
get something that did  not   belong to
them.    He then gave a list  of figures
made up by himself or party  showing
that British Columbia owed the Dominion five million dollars  instead of the
Dominion owing nineteen millions.
Tke Asiatic question came in for some
time, and some very pointed questions
and remarks were made to the speaker.
He contended that the Laurier administration had been right and the provincial government wrong. He wentat
W. J. Bowser and said that he should
be ungowned by the law society for
conduct unbecoming a barrister and declared that Bowser was afraid to meet
him. After a few desultory remarks
on different minor questions, he asked
for the support of the electors of this
section, believing that the government
would be returned and the district
receive bettor attention with him as
member and a supporter of the Laurier
administration.
Stuart Henderson, M. P. P., was then
called on. Mr. Henderson is one of the
dryest speakers in the province and is a
veritable godsend to liquid refreshment
establishment a number of the audience
retiring after he started to speak. He
talked for about three-quarters of an j
hour and the audience was no wiser
when he finished, but he helped to put
in time.
D. McCauley enlivened the opening
and closing of the meeting with several
tunes on the bag pipes.
The meeting then adjourned without
any vote of thanks.
At Nicola the following evening a
repition of the speeches were made.
After the meeting at Nicola the party
drove to Quilchena and the following
day continued on to Kamloops.

Two big companies of Englisn capitalists are purchasing some of the
biggest ranchiug properties in the Kamloops district, and will subdivide them
into small fruit farms. It Is likely that
trees will be planted before the sections
are placed on the market.
One company headed by Cecil Ward
is now floating stock in London. It will
purchase Sunnyside, giving $85,000 for
the land. The total outlay of the company will be over $300, 000.
William Riley of Vancouver represents the other company, and it is buying the famous Roper ranch, the price

wap on September 4th and was the result of a drunken brawl. Jules was
shot through the body and his face
smashed with a stone, the latter injuries causing death. The case aroused

Indians present from the Shuswap reserve.
The case against Goodwin, the Fish
Lake rancher, charged with stealing

number of animals belonging to the

heard at the next assize.
Westward Hoi
This magazine seems to know no limit
to its powers of expansion and improvement; and the October issue is certainly its best. The fiction alone runs to
nine short stories covering the sentimental, the tragic, the comic, the philanthropic, and the amatory.
The marriage took place at Nicola on
Monday last at the Anglican church of
Frank Kilner and Miss Gertrude
Woods, both of Grand Prairie, the
bride being a daughter of Edward
Woods of that place. The bride was
given away by her brother. After the
ceremony which was performed by Rev.
J. Thompson the happy couple drove to
Quilchena where they will reside.

W.O. Miller, car service agent of the
C. P. R. at Vancouver for a number ef
vears, was last week appointed superintendent to succeed J. T. Arundel],
who left last week for Winnipeg to become general superintendent of the
central division, vice R. R. Jamieson,
resigned.
Mr. Miller has been in the service of
the C. P. R. for the past twenty-five
years, he is perhaps one of the best
known officials of the company in British Columbia.

Waikem Sentenced to Nine Months.
Nine months imprisonment in the
common jail at New Westminster was
the sentence passed on George A.
Waikem last Friday by Judge Lamp-
man after he had refused a reserved
case to Mr. Joseph Martin, K. C.
The climax to this notorious case,
the first trial which occured iciMay last,
came more rapidly.than expected owing
to the fact that Mr. Martin consumed
little time in his argument on reasons
why he should be allowed to appeal, and
H. A. MacLean, deputy attorney-general took even less time in combating
the pleas  of opposing counsel.

not a vestige of evidence against them
and they gave a clear account of their
doings before and after the murder.
They are out a few weeks work and
their expenses back from Greenwood,
Prince Ferdinand of Bulgaria was
crowned czar|of Bulgaria on Monday.
The new flag was unfurled and the populace went wild with rejoicing.
The Guggenheimswill likely purchase
the controlling interest in some of the
more prominent mining properties in
Kamloops district which are regarded
as amongst the richest in the province.
J. F. Young, agent for the big mining capitalists, has been going over
some of the properties, and regards
some of them as excellent investments,
including the Iron Mask, Evening Star
and Copper King. The owners of the
Python group were offered $50,000 for
their properties, by Mr. Young, but declined. If the deal is successfully
completed it is not unlikely that the
Guggenheims will erect a smelter.
To Form Great O. P. R. Union..
A movement is on in Toronto by C.
P. R. employees to form a big union
which shall include all branches of
employees on the road. The conductors
and engineers are said to be the prima
movers in the scheme. THE   NICOLA    HERALD

Merritt, B. C, October 15, 1908.
Government is a trust, and the
officers of the government are
trustees and both the trust and
trustees are created for the benefit
of the people. Let us examine the
record of the Laurier government
and judge for ourselves whether the
trust imposed on them has been
administered with the same conscientious care for the responsibility involved as are required in the
execution of public trusts.
If as the Premier states we have
had a surplus during the past
twelve years of $113,000,000,
where has the money gone? Our
public debt has increased $20,000,
000. What have we to show for
it? Sir Wilfred would say that it
had beeu expended in public works.
But what is the cnaracter of these
works? A tnillon dollar ditch in
North York, between Newmarket
and Holland Landing; some wonderful harbor on Lake Huron, which
was washed away the following
year; sections of tne Grand Trunk
Pacific, which a private corporation
would have built for half the money; the Quebec bridge; and other
public works of a like character,
mostly in the province of Quebec,
and some others elsewhere . If a
farmer or a business man, whose
income was increasing each year,
started on to spend not only his increased income, but to plunge deeply into debt, what would his friends
say?
Would the Premier, contrary to
all principles of party government,
attempt to disclaim responsibility
for the acts, individually and collectively, of his colleagnes? It
would seem so, but our system of
party government is based on the
principle, that the Premier and his
advisors are one, and are jointly
responsible to the people for their
every action. Responsibility can
not be shirked.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the present members of his cabinet are
directly responsible to the people
for the acts of every member of his
cabinets present and past. He is
therefore responsible for the acts of
that former Minister who grew rich
in the public service, and who allowed public lands to relatives and
friends at merely nominal prices;
he is directly responsible for the
acts of the Minister whose department is now the subject of investigation; he is also responsible
for the calling to his assistance and
keeping as his advisors, the several
Ministers now driven from office,
whose private life was so notorious
as to become the subject of public
scandal and parliamentary discussion; he must also accept the
responsibility for the insult which
he and his colleagues have paid to
the intelligence of the people of the
province of Ontario, in appointing
to high offices under the Federal
government, or in accepting as his
leading lieutenants in the present
campaign in that province, members of the late discredited and corrupt Ross government, and in
showing confidence in these men,
in whom the people of Ontario, by
an overwhelming majority decided
they had no confidence. Briefly,
he has appointed Mr. Ross to a
Senatorship, Mr. Gibson to a
Lieutenant - Governorship. Mr.
Latchford to a Judgeship, Mr. Graham to a portfolio, while Messrs
Stratton and Harcourt are Liberal
nominees for the Federal house.
If one would seek for further
evidence of the weakness of the
weakness of the present administration, let him compare the feeble
cabinet aggregation of today even
with the Laurier Cabinet of twelve
years ago. Is it because there is
not still Liberals with as much
ability and force of character as the
members of the first cabinet, or is it
because the high type of Liberal,
the man of principle and high
ideals, has lost faith in his Premier
and party? And is convinced that
the public trust is not being properly abministered.

Sunday School Convention.
The ninth Provincial Sunday School
Convention will be held in New Westminster October 20th to 22nd.
The principal speaker will be W. C.
Pearce, International Superintendent of
the Adult Department. Mr. Pearce is
a very interesting and practical speaker. He is leader of the Adult Department, the greatest movement of the
twentieth century in Sunday School
work and it is principally through his
efforts that this department has become
so prominent during the past few years.
Thousands of men through the work of
this department have been gathered
into the Sunday Schools in all parts of
the North American continent. At the
International Convention held in Louisville, Kentucky, under Mr. Pearce's
leadership 1200 business men marched
through the streets of that city, and
demonstrated to the public that the
Sunday School is no longer to be regarded as simply for little children but
that it is for men also, and men of the
highest calibre. The Sunday School
workers of the province should make a
special effort to hear Mr. Pierce.
This promises to be the greatest
religious gathering ever held in the
province. The general theme is "The
Twentieth Century Sunday School organized for effectual work." The different phases of the organization and
work of the up-to-date Sunday School
will be discussed. The Sunday school
should be the right arm of the church
in all lines of christian effort, hence
this convention will endeavor to show
what the twentieth century Sunday
School should do in training workers in
Soul Winning, in Character Building,
Moral Reform, Reaching the Homes,
The Neglected Masses, and many other
live questions.
Each school can send the pastor and
superintendent, and one additional delegate for eash 60 of the enrollment or
fraction thereof. The provincial
board hopes that all schools will send
full delegations.���Contributed.
