VV. Ellis Enters Field   of  Journalism��� Purchases  Merritt Herald.  ! A City built on coal is the apt  description of Merritt as seen b>  Mr. C. C. Hoyer-Millar of London, England, whq sper-t a few  weeks neve in October last. Sjnce  his return to England Mr. Millar  whose business experience and  keen discrimination make him  eminently fitted to determine  ttje -investment values of real  estate, has presented lo the  clientele of a company for which  he is manager, some facts concerning' this city and the resources of the c|isU"ict that are  (producing good results and can-  hot fail toattifwt to the Nicole  Valley both men and money for  the development of the rich .soil  and richer mines that a.wait their  coming,  ..The large area of grass covered  loadunsurpassed in fertility- will-  with irrigation and cultivation  produce as good if not better  grain t|-an that now now grown  in the Praraie Provinces. Market gardening and smlal fruit  growing could then be carried on  in an extensive way on the land  which up to the present has only  been used for cattle  ranching.  There are also splendid opportunities in the way pf hor��  ticure. The benefit derived from  such industries a" these will help  to build up and ensure the progress ot Merritt and the Nicola  Valley,  The extensive qoal deposits  from which during the last three  years were produced 550,000 tons  of good marketable coal from  mines i n which development  has-scareely���commenced--need  capital and labour to open them  up and maintain a supply of coal  suifcient for all needs.  Notwithstanding that the price  of coal has advanced during the  past year the demand greatly ex  ceeds the" supply and order, are  booked a^ead for a considerable  period.   ;  This feature emphasizes the  facts that with more money and  men a great future is certain for  the Coal Jndustry of the ��� Valley.  The class of coal produced is preeminently a coking quality, and  has been tested in a dozen labia-  toriesand many coking plants.  Messrs. Burtt RouHon'& Haywood qf London, Enjrland have  pronouced' it a very"high grade  Coking Coal.  , ,When"the Kettle Valley Ru'l-  way and V. V & E. Railways ar-  completed ta the Boundary D st  rict next year the smelters in  that locality can be suppli-*--  fr'om these mines" and' go effect  f saving, .of..approximately 100  ���milesW-fwight haulage'with^af  corresponding saving itirates.  ��� In presenting these facts to  investors Mr. Hayer Millar is doing excellent service to the Nicola Valleji and we feel sure that  he will arouse considerable interest among that section of the  public who make a study of Canadian investments.  The fact that we in the Valley  have- an industry with such  a marked degree of permanency  and profit is doing much to attract the attention of capitalists  who besides interesting themselves in our coal propositins  have brought money into the,  Valley by land purchases.  We consider that given irrigation the Agricultural future of the  District-will^closeljTrivartHe  Coal industry in productiveness  event as with the small amout of  land under cultivation in the  District has given encouraging  returns. .

NEW COUNCIL AND NEW YEAR  Merritt has cause to feel pleased with the hew council and the'  city will expect good work from  them.  ... The new council is not composed of men who sought, the office but were interviewed by a  committee from the Board of  Trade and induced to accept the  positions they will occupy.  This was done because Merritt  must face two serious problems  in 1913 that mean. much to the  new city. Merritt is building for  the future and on matters of water supply and sanitation mean  the health of the population. The  Coldwater River will furnish an  abundant supply but the water  must be purified before it enters  the city water system,   j  Last year's council employed  an engineer who was busy with  .the installation of several other  systems. The water and ligh  was expected in September or  October; Much vexatious delay  has occured"���and thccouncil has  very patiently waited on the arrival of supplies and the people  of Merritt very graciously accepted one oxcuse after another and  naturally refrained from criticism. -  ��� The supervision and " manage  ment of it all was' in the hands  of the engineering firm, who  phould'h-tve-hati tlferwotkf^dSHfcl  three months ago but will probably roquire another -h'ree'  months to complete the undertaking. Of course they have  showed that no cause for delay  can be attributed to them.- Tin-  delay has been caused by the non-  arrivalof material. The ci<y i?  going through the winter without  electric lights because no engines  have yet been received and without water for the.want of sufficient pipss. But what about the  water supply itself���that is oi! infinitely greater* importance than  the plant!  It is proposed todig a well not  far from the river with which it  will be connected by a drain. If  this drain be used as a filter the  -water-must-natu.-ally=come=thru  slowly. The proposed well will  be small, the tank already constructed is comparitively small  and in case of fire or any such emergency the supply would be insufficient unless the" well filled  quickly from the river, Then it  would not be filtered and Merritt  would toe in danger of repeating  the experience of Ottawa. In  November. 1910, twenty-five hundred cases of Typhoid scourged  the Capital City. Investigation  showed chat when a fire had oc-  cured two weeks earlier in a  small ontlying Spirit Works an  unused main coming in from h  leteral stream, feeding the Ottawa river, was tapped and thfe  impure water required for fire  purposes found its way through  the whole water system and was  supposed to be the cause of so  much sickness that the advisability of- closing, the session' of  Parliament was discussed,  A similar outbreak has recently occurred and two prominent  experts  from  Ihe  Metropolitan  Water Board of London England  are now in  Ottawa conducting  an investigation.    In  the   construction of Merritt's water system the greatest care should be  taken;     'The engineering  firm  may be first class   mechanics, ]  they are ��low en' ugh to be careful, but we are not sure whethj  er they have" been required to |  obtain reports on the quailty of  the water in the Coldwater River between the months of July  and October when salmon are  dying by thousands in the  stream nor do we know if the  city council has ��� obtained such  report. If jiiot thg matter shonld!  be looked, into.; No system  should be'accepted that will not  provide for an ample supply of  filtered water so that no straight  river water will even be allowed  under any circumstances, to run  into the city water pipes. Is this  being provided  for?   We think  not. y.y    '���'   '  Meantime what about "sanitation ? The late council; lias certainly been careless about such  matters. , In- a kindly way we  would like" to: call attention of  the new council to piles of refusi.  that" have been thoughtlessly  dumped into several water courses, that feed many shallow wells  with surface water and from  which many citizens must draw  their water supply until connected cannot in many cases fake  place wi -hin a yean'and in the  meantime is sufficient care being exercised to protect from  contamination the water supply  on which the people now depend  This question is before the.new  council and we think it will receive at their hands the consideration a matter of such importance deserves. -  Merritt's new council aro all  busy suacessful men of affairs,  Tnen who have so' much to do in  .heir own business that the.  might well have declined to assume new duties and.further responsibilities. They are foremost among the men who have  made Merritt but having been  sought out by a committee of influential citizens appointed bj  the most active organisation .n  Merritt they unselfishly nj-'-ocd  to give thejr time .and ei;<'j;{->.  l-ffeadyBeverly"taxeQ and'se'rv.  onthe city conncibfor - \o.ir.  Let the people of Merritt not forget the circumstances of thi.- unique election by acclamation and  as citizens do aU in their power io  strengthen the hands of Jthe incoming councilnot only iVr n .few  weeks but throughout the year.  THE AFTERMATH  ! Tranquil and per.c ���fu' relation,  amongst the great European  Powers resulting from the lonj.  hoped for but not yet accomp-  lisned dispersal of the \v:ir  clouds that threaten Eutope  would be the ideal state of existence.

The better understanding between ��� Creat Britain and Germany so much written and talk  ed about and indeed as' events  have proved encouraged in pract  ice and theory by the masses of  both Countrys would if accomplished in the very near future,  banish the present International  complications, sorely irritated  by the Balkan situation and pave  a way towards a peace of long  standing amongst the European  Powers.  Should war   occur   between  Great Britain   and Germany it  would leave both victor and van  qnished in such a crippled con  dition that many years wouid el  apse before either Nation could  approach a condition  near convalescence,  Should however a speedy peaceful solution to the present tangle of Nations be concieved, the  financial relief afford is to the  worlds commerce and money  market would be infinitely beneficial.

NEW COUNCIL AND NEW YEAR  Merritt has cause to feel pleased with the hew council and the  city will expect good work from  them.  The new council is not composed of men who sought, the office but were interviewed by a  committee from the Board of  Trade and induced to.accept the  positions they will occupy.  ' This was done because Merritt  must face two serious problems  in 1913 that mean. much to the  new city. Merritt is building for  the future and on matters of water supply and sanitation mean  the health of the population. The  Coldwater River will furnish an  abundant supply but the water  must be purified before it enters  the city water system.   .'  Last year's council employed  an engineer who was busy with  the installation of several other  systems. The water and ligh  was expected in September or  October. Much vexatious delay  has occured'j?and the council hat-  very patiently waited on the arrival of supplies and the people  of Merritt very graciously accepted one oxcuse after another and  naturally refrained from criticism.  j The supervision and" management of it all was in the hands  of the engineering firm, who  photild-hfeive'hatt fhe^w-t-terdflftfe*1  three months ago but will probably roquire another -three1  months to complete the undertaking. Of course they have  showed that no cause for delay  can be attributed to them. Tnu  deiay has been caused by the non-  arrival of material. Tiieci'yie  going through the winter without  electric lights because no engines  have yet been received and without water for the .wan t of sufficient pipss. But what about the  water supply itself���that is of infinitely greater* importance than  the plant!  ���It is proposed to dig a well not  far from the river with which it  will be connected by a drain. Jl  this drain be used as a filter the  -water_must_naturally_come   thru  slowly.   -The proposed well will  be small, the tank already constructed is   comparilively small  and in case of fire or any such emergency the supply would be insufficient unless  the well filled  quickly from the river,    Then it  would not be filtered and Merrit't*  would be in danger of repeating  the experience of Ottawa.    In  November. 1910, twenty-five hundred cases of Typhoid scourged  the Capital City.     Investigatiph  showed Ihat when a fire had oc-  cured two weeks  earlier  in  b.  small ontlying Spirit JVorks   an  unused main coming ih .from b.  leteral stream, feeding the Ottawa river,   was tapped and thfe  impure water required for fire  purposes found its way  through  the whole water system and was  supposed to be the cause of so  much sickness  that the advisability of closing. the session' of  Parliament was discussed,  A similar outbreak has recently occurred and two prominent  experts from the Metrooolitan  Water Board of London England  are now in Ottawa conducting  an investigation. In the construction of Merritt's water system the greatest care should be  taken. The engineering firm  may be first class mechanics,  they are slow en' ugh to be careful, but we are not sure wheth  obtain reports on the quailty of  the water in the Coldwater River between the months of July  and October when salmon are  dying by thousands in the  stream nor do we know, if the  city, council has-obtained such  report; If .uot tb�� matter shonld  be looked, into.. No system  should be.accepted that will not  provide for an ample supply of  filtered water so that no straight  river water will even be allowed  under any '.ircumstances, to run  .into the city water pipes. Is this  being provided for? We think  not  - Y ������"'-    ���  Meantime what about "sanitation ? The late council; has certainly been careless about such  matters. In. a kindly way we  would like1' to: call attention of  the new council to piles of refusi  that have been thoughtlessly  dumped into several water courses, that feed many shallow wells  with surface water and from  which many citizens must draw  their water supply until connected cannot in many cases "T;ake  place wi'hin a yean "and in the  meantime is sufficient care being exercised to protect from  contamination the water supply  pn which the people now-depend  This question is before the new  council and we think it will receive at their hands the consideration a matter of such importance deserves.  Merritt's new council are all  busy suacessful men of affairs,  "men who have so much to do in  .heir own business   that   the>  might well have declined to assume new duties and.further responsibilities.     They "are   foremost among the men  who  ha\-  made Merritt but having been  sought out by a committee of influential   citizens   appointed _;*  the most active organisation, n,  Merritt they unself'-h'y  at-'ced  to give thejr time .and en�����)*{!\  &$ead5r!sevfrly"taxe_l and'sc'rvY.  onthe   city   councillor  '  >e<ir.

The better understanding between Creat Britain and Germany so much written and talk  ed about and indeed as events  have proved encouraged in pract  ice and theory by the masses of  both Gountrys would if accomplished in the very near future,  banish the present International  complications, sorely irritated  by the Balkan situation and pave  a way towards a peace of long  standing amongst the European  Powers.

A Good Idea  A Kansas City  police judge  has  a-  dopt-J a system of dealing with offen  ees for which the penalty   is a fine  which should commend itself  to magistrates on this side the line.   He does  np_t thjnk itjust  that  ths.. rich  should  pay-'their fines afid be   allbvraFto go,  while   the poor   have   to    work out  their fines in prison; that, he declares,  is nothing less thau sending-ya man  to jail for a debt, a practice which was  supposed to have been abolished long  long ago.   As a remedy he allows men  of family and previous good coriduc-.to  pay their fines on the instaliriieitf plan.
