The  desirability of  and necessity ,for such censorship ove.r th^,^movie?," as  is  now provided-for, has been admitted   in    moat    progressive  countries of the civilized world,  the educative yalge of the cinematograph, either- for good or ill,  being readily conceded. The British  Columbia;   authorities   are  determined that |he influence of  the popular   animated   picture  show in this corner of the Empire  shall be .for good, and accordingly e\jH*y care will be taken to  prevent the display of such films  as are stimulative of easy indifference to   moral codes,  treat  lightly the   various   phases of  crime prJ'migh|,serve to weaken  or undermine^ healthy patriotic  national and J3ritish ' sentiment,  in which connection an insidious  germ has a^ea^-been discovered  in the prdvincj^jficture theatres.

'���*f*j j  The following article   taken  from the "Saturday Sunset" will  meet with the approval of those  interested in the natural wealth  and resources of the Nicola. Valley District and the author thereof is to be congratulated on the  intimate knowledge he possesses  of his subject. The reference to  our city is certainly praise indeed  and the publicity afforded by the  "Saturday Sunset" in thus drawing attention to Merritt, and its  mines and rich lands, is bound to  be of considerable value in attracting capital to this district.  "Spokane capitalists are   now  securing the plums of the rich  silver-lead   deposits at Summit  Camp, now known as 'Leadville,,'  near the headwaters of the Tul-  ameen, where they have opened  up and are developing mining  properties, the ores from * which  would amost pay to pack out  over the pack trail down the Tul-  arneen river,  which was made  during the Granite Creek gold  excitement in the early '60's. Besides, the two above-mentioned  camps, there are many others  now being developed by foreign  capital.   Canadian and Vancouver capitalists are waiting for  transportation facilities to reach  the Pacific Coast before making  investigation's,'  whereas    now  that transportation is .assured,  our American^coiisins^^are-'^quite7  content to start extensive raining  operations and are busy picking  out some of the   plums.   The  Great Northern railway,  known  as the Victoria, Vancouver and  Eastern railwav. is now running  daily trains   from Spokane to  Princeton and tri-weekly trains  from Princeton up the Tulameen,  and their line will probably be  completed to Vancouver early in  1915.    _  The Kettle Valley railway, or  C. P. R., is being rushed to take  its share of the immense tonnage  from the rich Similkameen and  Tulameen districts, which,, outside of the present   operating  companies,   has   hardly    been  scratched.   The trans-provincial  auto highway is being built from  Hope, in the Fraser Valley, over  the mountains to Princeton, the  centra) distributing point for the  Similkameen district. This highway ought    to   be  completed'  through the Similkameen to the  Boundary country by the end of  next year. But at the present time  one must "either go round by  Spokane or down the Okanagan  Lake to  Penticton,  thence, by  auto to Keremeos, thence forty-  five miles on the Great Northern  railway to Princeton���both routes eating up tinie and money.  However, in the summer time  the cheapest and quickest route  is via the Nicola Valley to (Merritt on the C.  P.  R. thence ,by  auto stage for four hours to the  new town of  Coalmont in the  Tulameen,  then by   the Great  Northern railway to Princeton, \  one hour.   The trip from Princeton to Vancouver has often been  made in one day in the summer J  by automobile  from Princeton  to Merritt,   then by the C. P.  R.  Under the present C. P.  R.  schedule in going from Vancouver to. Princeton one ought to  stay over night at Merritt. This  is one of the most  important  growing cities in the dry belt of  British Columbia, supported by  the rich arable lands of the Nic  ola and surounding valleys and  backed by the large coal mines  which are operated by Vancouver capital in the Nicola Valley  at Merritt. ,.Thevp-iter has seen  thi$J city grow from tents in. the  last five years and? considering  the shortness of the period, there  is not another city in the interior]  that can boast of its extensive  improvements, although it has  had no boom to speak of, it has  discounted the marvellous growth  of Rossland in the days of 1896.  . Leaving ! Merritt 'between  seven and eight o'clock a. m. in  the auto-stage, you start to climb  the 'Hamilton. Hill to the ��� east*  This section has been for years  known as the Commonage where  numbers of cattle range sometimes the year round. From the  top of the hill the road leads  over an excellent rolling farming  district to the Growder's ranch,  which is the. present stopping  place in Aspen Grove.   It is here  that' the horpe Btages stop for  noon and where the passengers  can  see  many  of   the  Aspen  Grove copper specimens.   From  an agricultural point of view the  Aspen Grove district is essentially   a   stock-raising country,  although Mr. Crowderpnd many  other farmers in the district have  been successful in raising vegetables, oats, etc. ' AU kinds of  hay grow well, ahd the  tasty  meals given at this popular stopping-pis ce show that the proof  of the pudding is in the .eating.  The Aspen Grove post ofiice is  kept by   Captain   Turner who  purchased the old Dodd's /ranch  in the centre of the Aspen Grove  copper camp.  Owing to the lack  of transportation facilities these  extensive copper deposits have  not been developed by   capital.  Native copper has been .opened  up by Mr. E. P. Lowe, an old-  time Aspen Grove prospector oh  the Blue Bird mineral claim. The  copper., fonqation    of   Aspen  Grove is-similar to the Michigan  and Lake Superior copper deposits, th'e prevailing ��� metalsr being  chalcolite and native   copper.  The different prospectors inter-,  ested. Have stayed   with  their  prospects for years. Many of the  claims located are now crown  granted  and many have been  abandoned. .With the necessary  transportation facilities and legitimate capital for. development,  producing copper mines would  undoubtedly be established. ., .  On leaving the. Aspen Grove  district,  which is .a   beautiful  country, the road descends", into  the Otter Canyon and comes to.  'Canyon House,'.another, stop-;  ping^placej .formerly "owned by  DantMcKav, but now owned by  Joe ' Collett, of Merritt. '; Here,  farmers successfully grow grain  and all kinds of garden,.truck.

He expressed the opinion that  lights on a car would be rather a  disadvantage to a motorist in  rounding the bend.  H. Grieg was then called and  said he was driving along the  Nicola Avenue road to Coutlee  between 7 and 8 p. m. on Dec.  26. He was alone in the car and  had all lights, which are electric,  on. When he got to the curve  making the turn he noticed his  left hind wheel collide with some  obstacle, the^spund bringing it  to his notice. He looked over the  side and saw he^had^struck a  water pipe which was^raised in  the air.; This was on the south  side of the car. He did not know  at the time that he had a blowout so continued up to Dr. Tutill's  house, his destination. He mentioned to the doctor that he  struck a pipe and on returning  to the car and starting up he  noticed one wheel would not  traction. He heard the rim  rattling and was convinced he  had a damaged tire. He returned  to the garage and jacked up| the  wheel, then going to obtaih%wit-  nesses, being N. Petersen/! Dr.  Tutill and Capt. Stephenson.  These gentlemen, armed Jwith  lanterns, went to the scene of  the accident and found the.damaged car had left the w^rds  " non-skid " distinctly marked  in the mud. Dr. Tutill and Capt.  Stephenson measured the ��� distance from the wheel-rut to the  pipe in- question, whichJs was  about 18 or 22 inches. The^ tire  had a gash about 4 inches through  (tire here produced in court).  Both outer and inner tires'..^_vere  cut right, through. Mr. Greig  said he was travelling about 7 or  8 miles an hour. He had .driven  - tars about six' years. He,, .went  tO'see Aid. Gordon that night  and asked him and -.some other  ' members of the council' to come  down, but Mr."Gordon could' not  leave that night, saying he would  come next morning. Greig considered the damage would have  been done to the car driving at  very low speed.. The night was  a very dark one.  Court then adjourned until 10  o'clock Thursday morning.  On renewing the Greig v. City  case on Thursday morning N.  Peterson was called and corroborated the evidence of the plaintiff. Capt. Stephenson also corroborated, but admitted he was  not an expert motor driver.  Dr. Tutill said the road was a  1 safe one to drive on if care were  ' used.   In trying to avoid a puddle on the.road plaintiff might  =possibly4iit-the=pipe  road being nearly all grave!. He  saw the pipe in question and it  had rolled into the. gutter. On  the end was a dent*; and. he did  not think'a pi.e^e of rubber could  dent a pipe the way'it was done.  He marked the fence so that he  would know exactly the piace  of accident. There was 20 . feet  of good wagon road at the place.  Here Mr. Mclntyre ami Mr. Gordon had a heatedrargumeht as to  the state of the road at the time.  Mr. Menzies -was with Mr. ,Gbr-.  don when making an examination of the place which was readily found by the marksrin the  road. There were 18 inches between the wheel-rut and end of.  pipe. '���':���������  Mr. Irvine, who affirmed, as he  objected to take".. oath, also remembered examining the place  and stated that: the track from:  the bridge to the pipe -was in a.  perfectly straight line and the  road good, and no necessity for  a car :to leave the beaten track.  A. Jackson's evidence wasvery  similar to the, former witnesses.  Mr. Grimmett7 in his plea for  a verdict, endeavored to show  contributory'.negjigence.,:"'.      ���  His honor reserved judgement.  Owing to the-lack of time', we  are compelled to hold over the  proceeding of ^the case of J, A.;  Men zies v. I. Hall'(Indian)," and  the case of Eas^yirood & Cleasby  v. W. H.

On motion it, .was ordered that  the Govt. Telephone Service account for February, of $6 be paid.  A report was read from -the  sanitation committee, recommending the insertion of clauses  in the Building by-law in reference to the location.' and size of  closets, and also, recommending  the purchase of- fifty garbage  cans at $2.95 each and fifty metal  boxes.

On reading the. same His  Honor  refused to comment on  the article..  Mr. Balz,' civil engineer,  was  : the first witness called for the  defence and he said he: was in-  : structed by/Mr. Gordon to prepare a plan' showing details of  accident  which, gave  measure-;  ':��� ments, etc.  Mr. ��� Gordon,  remembered Mr.  [' < Greig calling on him on the night  ���of Dec. 26, 1.912. and mentioning  a   the accident.
