The Council were not now indebted to  the bank for the $793 delinquent taxes  for 1913, this amount had been paid off.  With regard to the ?1126 representing  delinquent taxes for 1914,  the bank at  the request of the finance committee,  had agreed to relinquish their claim on  the amount.   It was hoped in this way  to finance the schools' for the lest of  the year, as the sums stated with the  Government grants will suffice to take  care^rf the necessary expenses.   On  the motion of Alderman McLean and  Jackson the action of the finance" committee was endorsed.  "The Nicola Valley News" wrote,  stating that owing to the extraordinary.  I carry out their contract with the city.  Aid.  McGoran said if an order was  giyen. under the contract, for four publications he was quite satisfied., and  would witkdraw his amendment.   The  motion approving the account was then  ~put and carried without dissent.  City Soli itor Grimmett reported that  the order from the Dominion Board of  Railway Commissioners authorising the  provision of Main Street crossing on the  C.P.R., hacTbeen received.   Under the  order the city would have to bear the  cost of putting in the crossing and its  maintenance which must conform with  the railway regulations.  On the motion  of Alderman McGoran1 it was decided  that the matter of arranging for the  erection of the'crossing be left to the  Board of Works to consider and report  back to the Council.  Mayor Walters reported having been  in communication with Superintendent  Peters of the C. P. R. and Traffic" Manager Fisher, of the K. V. R., re proposed new winter train schedule. Mr.  Fisher had informed him that he would  be in Merritt this week and the Mayor  expected to see him.  Large congregations were present at  the Roman Catholic C urch on Sunday,  on the occasion of the first visitation of  His Grace Archbishop T. Casey!of Van-,  couver, to the church which 'was^estab-  lished here four years ago.      i  The visitation of so high a personage  naturally w s made the occasion of  special preparation by the members of  the faith in the city and district.  At 10 a.m., the Archbishop with, the  Rev. -Father Wagner, local priest, and  the Rev. Father LeJeune, of Kamloops  and of the Indian Missions, celebrated  floiy Mass and administered the Blessed  Sacrament of Confirmation to some  thirty candidates from the parish and  its envitons, some coming from Coal  Are Investigating  Copper Claims  Tacoma Smelter Officals Take  90* days Option on Mamette  Lake Property  A ninety days option to purchase copper claims at Mamette  lake, belonging to Martin Bresnik  of this city, with the privilege of  working them during the term  of the option was agreed upon  1 this week on terms not divulged,  ' between Mr. Bresnik and Mr. T.

Insurance covering three years had been  paid,  and no accounts of the present.  year would be left'unpaid."

The -evening-sermon of His Grace  was based on   the Biblical parable of  the man who,  forgiven a debt of ten  thousand talents due to his master,cast  into prison his brother who  owed him  but one hundred pence.     The Archbis-  lopdrew a parallel as to the unforgiving  spirit shown i y the man who forgiven  by hl3 master showed no mercy for his  debtor and the infinite mercy and forgiving spirit of God to His'children.

Great  Address:   The Nicola Valley News, P. O. Drawer 'L,' Merritt, B.C.  COMMENTS ARE TIMELY  The comments of our contemporary last week on-the untidy state of  the local cemetary are timely and will doubtless meet with the general  approval of all residenis of the Valley who have had the misfortune to  observe the existing conditions. What with sinking graves and headstones, holy mounds almost indistinguishable from the level ground and  general signs of neglect and inattention the cemetery in many parts is a  picture of sad desolation. Owned by private interests and outside civic  control any action taken' to improve the lamentable -tate of affairs might  be promoted by some public-spirited friends or relatives of those " At  Rest" in the sacred plots. The suggestion that a civic Cemetery  board or committee be established is worthy of consideration. ' Local  control would be desirable as, in many cases, the relatives of the -revered dead are now far away from the Jistrict and unable to give the  plots the individual attention they would doubtless have received. It  should not be difficult for persons directly interested to devise some  scheme by which the beautifully situated cemethry will be restored to a  tidy and proper condition and kept so.  ���       ���       ���  The increased interest being shown by representatives,of smelting  concerns in copper and other claims in the district will be welcomed by  all who have a stake in the~ City, as well as those prospectors]directly  interested in the fuller development- of the workings. It is -to be hoped  that in any negotiations transpiring with a view to the getting out of  ores in marketable quantities prospectors will forget the old,blood thirst  for fortune by " Get-rich-quick-Wallingford " methods. Foresight and  'wisdom should be exercised in any bargaining, and prospectors would  do well to remember that there is plenty of copper in'British Columbia  outside of the environs of Merritt, .If owners of claims-do -not show  businesslike judgement by asking only reasonable terms for their holdings, that-large smelter-that we hope to see established in Merritt will  be as far off being erected as if capitalists had never trodden the ground  Vivid Description  of Trench Charge  "A long white wall,  the top  flashing and glowing with  rifle  fire, a long tongue of flame betraying a machine gun!.. .That  was our goal, three hundred yard-  ahead !..... .it was in . the light  of early morn when we swept.oh,  not hesitating not pausing,  into the. jaws of death,  into the  mouth of Hell" we ran.... Our  best par fell on our left, another  on our right....but this was not  the place for parting.tableaux.  yonder was our goal .yonder  the Hun that slew my pal."  Thus graphically writes Pte  Thomas R. Kinney of the l'st  Canadian Contingent from the  front to his brother the Rev Geo  Kinney, of Merritt. He is describing a charge.  Continuing he writes, "You  take short gasps, stoop lower,  run a little faster, grasp your  rifle tighter, fearing not the  snap of bullets, the crack of the  rifle, the incessant roar and bang  of bursting bombs Then, you  hear a cheer and your blood  boiling with excitement you see  your comrades climbing into the  German trench you follow  and you cheer and presently you  are climbing up the parapet and  dropping inside God, but the  bombs have done their work and  what remains of the enemy are  still for ever Such is the  strain ofevents that makes our,  Merritt aiid the  Mining Activity  The Snowstorm mine in the  Highland Valley, and which Mr.-  Stuart Henderson, ex-M.L.A., is  the owner, is a regular shipper  of high grade bornite ore to "the  Tacoma smelter.        "  The group belonging to Messrs  Chattaway, Ward and .Dr. Sanson has recently been bonded  and development work is expected to start immediately.  Another old group, the "Glos-  sie" in .the same vicinity, has  been bonded by Contractor  Carlson of the Kettle Valley  Railway and associates, and a  crew of about twenty men are at  work building winter quarters  and developing the ore bodies.

Five large Sample Rooms  Merritt's Payroll is  Steadily Growing  The healthy payroll distributed  last Saturday in-Merritt by the  local mines, aggregating over  $18,000 for "the month ending  October 16, was reflected in .the  busy appearance of the streets  and stores and general indications  of returning prosperity. The  payroll surpassing that of a  month ago, coupled with the fact  that the mines are working almost steadily is creating among  the miners a feeling of firmer  confidence and optimism in the  prospects for the coming winter.

This  cattle stealing in the Interior has in the  public mind assumed veiy large proportions. It is a very difficult thing to be  proved and when a conviction is obtained I have to act on the jury's finding  that cat'le stealing did actually, take,  place, and I may say in regard to this  particular case, I quite agree' with the  jury. Cattle stealing means a man is  a studied criminal. He has got to plan  it out. It also means if the law is notf  enforced properly and sternly it is likely to lead to murder. Consequently  although of course it is a serious .thing  for your family a man should think of  that before he enters upon tht criminal  path. I have to keep in mind what  this crime is; how important it is that  people in this country should know that  nothing will be more strictly dealt  with in the courts than cattle stealing  or stealing of stock at all. As far as I  am personally concerned I dislike very  much heavy sentences. You are liable  at least to fourteen years in the penitentiary: ThT^Bentence_df~tire~Cou"rris  that you be imprisoned in the penitentiary for five years.

The story is  related to an accident which occurred during Mr. Craig's incum  bancy at Princeton, B. C.     -  Mr. Craig was holding services  in the Town Hal), and Sunday  after Sunday he was faced with  a very small congregation.  Princeton'in those days was not  inclined.sti-ongly towards serious  things and Mr. Craig was a trifle  down-hearted.  Jim Wright was at that time  editor of the "Princeton Star,"  and Mr. Peck McSwain was superintendent of the mechanical  department Mr. Craig called  at'the "Star" office one day and  told the editor and Mr, McSwain  what his "troubles were.  Peck sat upon a stool setting  type, chewing tobacco and smoking a cigarette. He .turned to  Mr. Craig and. said, "Parson, you  don't advertise, that is what is  wrong," then Peck told him how  he could fill the'church every  Sunday if he wished through"the  medium of the advertising col-,  umnsof the "Star."  Mr. Craig'seized; the suggestion. He and-Peck drew up a wonderful advertisement next week  setting fourth the following Sunday the hew pastor would preach  on Princeton's peculiar people  and tell them what he knew  about the truth.  The advertisement took up  nearly;apage in the "Star" and  was of a highly sensational  character. Ihe paper was issued  quite1 a'sensation was caused  through the Similkameen.

Sutherland told his road  crew 'Tour king�� and country  need you; we don't.", The statement.was not true and the answer that "he might just as well  have done" is too childish for  discussion.
