 '<J  r  THE    HOME  PAPER    FOR    THE    CITY    OP    MERRITT    AND    THE    NICOLA    VALLEY  Vol. 6, No. 27  MERRITT,   B.C.,   FRIDAY,    MAY 26,  1916  Price 5 Cents  af  umpire  gain Visit the Valley  $200,000 Appropriation Bill to  Assist Mining Development in B. C.  Government's Progressive Measure to Authorize Aid in Construction  of Roads to Promising Claims.���Engineers to Advise  and Help Prospectors  Paid Last Tribute  To His Memory  The Prospectors Aid Bill, a measure  providing $200,000 for trails and roads  to mining properties, was debated Monday night. Hon Lome Campbell, minister of mines, spoke on the second  reading and nearly a dozen other members, including Dr. Young ar.d Mr. Brewster, also discussed the bill. It' was a  field night for the mining members.  It was found more particularly in the  interior that to develop mines of promise it was necessary to open up roads  and trails, declared the minister of  mines. The country hai now reached  such a stage that the work of the prospectors would have to be supplemented.  The public works district grants were  meant for settlers, he pointed out, and  to give roads to miners and prospectors  would require extra funds and'for that  reason the sum of $200,000 would be  - provided. It was planned to give a refund of fifty per cent, of the cost of  roads built by private mine owners.  [The Government several weeks ago  assured the Aberdeen Mining Syndicate'  of its assistance in building the new  road to the mine, on the basis of , fifty  cents to ,each fifty cents spent by the  prospecting syndicate.]    - fc  Hon. Mr. Campbell referred to the  vote this year of $24,000 for field work  in examining prospects. There would  be at least one qualified mining engineer  employed this year in each district on  that work, he said.  Mr.-Brewster wanted to see something done in regard to the development  of processes for cheap ore treatment,  and in regard to free assays and general scientific research. To prevent the  costly hauls to the few large smelters  something should be done to establish  small furnaces at various points,so that  only the residue of value need be taken  to the smelters. Mr. Brewster announced he would vote for the bill.  Dr. Young said that Mr. Brewster's  proposal for small furnaces was alluring  but impracticable. The speaker hoped  that the sum next year would be larger.  The expenditure for field investigation  this year was increased from $6,000 to  $24,000.  Mr. McLean, Nelson, said he 'hoped  the bill would rejuvenate prospecting  in British Columbia.  Mr. Cotton, Richmond," thought it  might be well for the Government to  give an understanding to prospectors  that if they completed roads this year  they would be repaid to a certain extent  upon completion.  The bill was given second reading.  VERY PLEASED WITH  VISIT TO ABERDEEN MINE  E. C. Johnson and T. J. Cor-  win of the Aberdeen Mine Syndicate conducted U. A. "Durland,  A. N. B. Rogers and O. N. B.  Wilkie by motor to Aberdeen  mine yesterday. All had a very  successful inspection trip, the  local business men being highly  enthusiastic oyer the' prospects  of the promising mine and^the  progress made to date.  We regret to hear that Pte. George  Osmond, of this city; who, is at the  front, has been ill with bronchitis.  Funeral of Late Angus Mclntyre  Largely   Attended.      Impressive Service  Amid many manifestations of regret  the funeral of the late Angus Maclntyre  took place on Sunday afternoon in the  presence of a large concourse of friends  and acquaintances who assembled al  the Piesbyterian Chnrch and at the  graveside at Merritt Cemetery.  Leaving Barwick's Undertaking Parlors, on Granite Avenue, at 2.30. the  cortege proceeded lo the church where  the Rev. J. Hyde conducted an impress.  ive service. Basing his words on the  text, John 12c. 24v., "Except a corn of  wheat fall into the ground and die, it  abideth alone ; but if it die it bringeth  forth much good fruit," the minister  paid a tender tribute to the memory of  the deceased. Hymns were sung,while  Mrs. Tutill presided at the organ. The  body lay in state during the service.  Several automobiles and other conveyances with nearly all the prominent  public men of the district, representative of all spheres of business activity,  followed the cortege to the cemetery.  A brief committal service was held.  The principal mourners were William  and John (Lillooet), Murdock, sons;  Mrs. M. Mclntyre, Miss McKenzie.  Among the mourners was Mayor A.  Jackson. Pallbearers were Messrs. T.  Hunter (Nicola), I. Eastwood, D. L.  Munro, Geo. Irvine, J. Hutton and D.  McKay.  The coffin was surmounted with beautiful floral tributes from relatives and  friends and the staff of the Coldwater  Hotel.   ���  .

The matron speaking in support of her  written recommendation said that she  was at piesent the only graduate nurse  in the hospital, and as she could not be  available dny and night such an appointment was necessary.- Without^, such a  nurse, it was an injustice to patients  and'unfair to pupil nurses whose training was seriously interfered with and  retarded  During the discussion Director Tutill,  as a medical man, gave the opinion  that nurses in their final year were or  should, be as ��� efficient as. graduate  nurses. If not, a reflection was cast  upon past matrons and hospital boards  which he did not conceive asv right.  Miss Whitmore, who has practically  comphted her training, it transpired to  the satisfaction of the board, is now in  greatly improved health. This factor  largely influenced the board in deferring  the appcintment requested.  The president hinted at the danger  that patients who were paying the full  rates might demand the provision of a  graduate nurse, and that a .patient  might bring a fully qualified nurse into  the institution and charge the board  with the cost of her services.  The recently opened  "waiting list"  on which are filed applications for position's at the institution has already encountered troublous waters./ The  two  first names placed thereon were nurses  who left the institution during the regime of Matron  Miss Leitch  "when  hiring   and   firing   was   taking  place  rapidly"  as director Tutill  described  the period.   On a change of matronship  it will be remembered, the beard desir?  ing to give them every opportunity  t<|  complete   their  training  after   some  years of hard work, placed their names  on the waiting list.  This decision however came into' conflict with the opinion of Matron Miss  Fish who strongly believes that it is  bad policy and not in the best interests  of the hospital to reappoint pupil nurses  who have once resigned or left by  other ways. Some directors, differed  in the opinion advanced by other colleagues that the placing of applicants  on<the waiting list necessarily meant  that "girls could be kept hanging  round" when there was no chance of  them getting on the staff. Director  McLean urged with warmth that if the  I     (Continued on page 2)  Empire Day Celebrated by Nicola  Valley Residents in Pleasing Fashion  Sports Program by Firemen, and Whist Drive and Dance under the  Auspices of the Red Cross, Gave Enjoyment to  ��� Many Hundreds  In sunny weather tempered by invigorating breezes. Empire Day was  celebrated by t ie residents of Merritt  and the Nicola Valley in the picturesque Voght Park, where the day was  given over to the enjoyment of a  lengthy and attractive program of  sports. In the assembly of many hundreds, young and old, was a strong  sprinkling of husky cowboys from cattle ranches while scores of Indians  and squaws, the latter attired in their  mist extravagantly colored tailor remade suits, which put the rainbow to  shame, sat astride their steeds forming a fl nk remindful' of cavalry on  guaid, and at times joining in the  festivities.  '   Typically a "Children's Day," every  attention was  focussed  on  them and  SPORTS  their happiness. And this was as it  should be, for Empire Day, 19J6, was  observed when the Empire was at war.  Her sons were, and are, heroically serving the glorious flag and fighting with  one aim and sweeping sentiment���  "For all we have and are  For all our CHILDREN'S fate "  as Kipling so tersely and splendidly  wrote.  Commencing with baseball and football matches shortly after nine "'clock  in the morning, the major events were  carried through during the afternoon  when the various races and competitions  were eagerly contested until after seven  o'clock at night, the horse races providing an exciting termination to a  day of sports, - well managcM; and ,  made more delightful by their informality.

Marquart Ships Car of Wheat  Pete Marquart, of Nicola.on Tuesday  shipped from his ranch a car load ��� of  wheat to consignees in Vancouver, thus  following the example set by S. Kirby,  of the same town, who has the distinction of having recently sent out the first  carload of grain grown in the Nicola  Valley and exported.  Like his neighboring rancher, Mr.  Marquart, has taken advantage of the  new conditions which have arisen asan  after effect of the war, the higher prevailing prices enabling local ranchers  to ship their yield in grain to the Coast  markets and get paying returns. Before the war, the lower prices offering,  together with the cost of transportation  precluded locally grown grain being  sent outside on a paying basis.  The prices now being obtained for  Nicola Valley wheat from millers at  Coast points are in the neighborhood of  $37 per ton. A couple of years ago.  for example in contrast, there was  plenty of wheat to be bought at Kamloops at $25 per ton.  Rev. J. Hyde to  Enlist  Soon  Will Join Army Medical Corps  The Rev. J. Hyde, Presbyterian  minister at Merritt has offered his ser  vices to the military forces and provided no unsurmoun table difficulties  arise in connection with the appointment by the Assembly of a successor to  him in the charge here, he will leave in  about three weeks for Victoria to take  his place in the ranks of the Army  Medical Corps. He hopes to take  other local and eligible men with him.  The Rev. Mr. Hyde, is married. A  preacher with fighting qualities, strong  convictions and forceful delivery, his  work and ministrations, have been  marked with deep sincerety during bis  twenty months residence here.

What reply is being prepared for them?, asks the Ottawa Evening  Citizen in an article dealing with the employment of returned soldiers  after the war is over. Before the war, it states.the federal department  of immigration, had started to ship unemployed and destitute people  back to Europe;'   7  The. returned soldiers will not be willing to be shipped out of the  country.- They have fought and suffered in defence of this land. They  have a right to live and labor in Canada; and with the millions of acres  of fertile land, ample to provide opportunities for all, they may want-to  know why the land is withheld from use; why they have to pay toll to  some privileged land holding interests before they are allowed to  work  on it.  ��� ��� ������"'���  Court of Revision  Next Monday  Ten appeals for lower assessments on City property will be  considered at the Court of Revision, for the Assessment Roll for  1916, which will sit at the*City  Hall on Monday morning next, at  10 o'clock.

Besides contributing to the personal prosperity of the ranchers and the community  as a whole, the Province and the Dominion will indirectly benefit.  The opening of new and profitable markets stimulates production. Greater production on the farms is being urged by the leading economists  and publicists throughout the. Empire as a vita! necessity.

The men were livingin a shack  near the Douglas Lake Company's  ranch, and veal which was found  in their home was said to be the  property of the company. Although there had been cattle  stealing and killing during the  past months on the ranges, there  was no evidence brought forward  to verify the statement that the  meat was the property of the  company. The jury was out but  a short time when the verdict  was arrived at.  Crown Prosecutor W. J. Baird  brought evidence in support of  his case that large quantities of  veal had been eaten regularly by  the accused since the calf was  missing and suspicion was cast  on them.  A. D. Mclntyre, barrister, was  for the defence. . Accused, and  witnesses on the stand,- gave a  complete denial saying that the  meat referred to as eaten by them  as deer meat.  Judge Morrison's summing up  was against the accused but he  concurred in the verdict given on  the evidence produced.  Solicitor M. L.

Eventually by  a motion of Director Grimmett  and Collett it was decided to inform the two applicants for reinstatement that in view of the  recommendation of the matron  they did not consider it good  policy to consider their reappointment to the staff.  Director Tutill and Slater, who  moved as an amendment that the  whole matter be referred to a  committee of two to again investigate the entire circumstance  bf their previous leaving tne hospital voted against the resolution  which was- carried by four to  two. For -the resolution, Directors Grimmett, Taylor, Rankine, McLean, Collett. against  Directors-Tutill and-Slater.--^^7  After discussion, a recommendation by the matron that the  charge per week to patients use-  ing the semi-private maternity  ward should be raised from $12  to $ 15, was adopted.  Hospital dressings will in future  be included in this charge.  Hitherto���the matron convinced  the board���the $12 charge had  not covered the expenses.  On the motion of Directors  Taylor and Collett, it was resolved that a report of a special committee of Directors Grimmett  and Slater which'.': recommended  a compromise of half the original  charge made in the Moyes account for," "treatment, around  which were special circumstances, be accepted.  It was left to the matron to  arrange for the vacations of  nurses Chambers and Bond.

The warning imported in the  judicial delivery as worthy of  repetition at this season.  "Mr. Sues tells me that there  is an impression among some of  the jurors that I said  yesterday  that unbranded  horses runnirg  wild on public lands,  commonly  called   "wild   horses"   in   this  country, were the property of the  crown.   Now that is a mistake,  I did hot say that they are not  the property of the crown; they  are the property of some person,  I  should  say the  person  who  owns the dam, if they have been  running   wild   ever   since  they  were foaled.    What  I  pointed  out last night was that anyper-  son incurred a great responsibility in picking up an  unbranded  horse running wild on the public  lands, and unless he was able to  show that he really in truth did  own it he would have trouble.  I understand how the impression got aftroad; in speaking ofj  that particular horse last night I  said that I could , not make any  order as to the return of that  horse, but that the Indian must  apply to the crown, I was then  speaking of the particular horse  Coal mining: rights of the Dominion, J '" question which the crown had  Unbranded Horses on Public Lands���   | ��.,MMCB    ......    flM   ....

That particular  horse is like that knife ih  this  murder case, referring to case of  Rex vs. Chung Kee You,  is an  exhibit, and it is in the possession of the crown,  and as the'  owner bf it must apply to the  crown for leave to take it away  after the court is done with it,so  the Indian claiming this partic  ular horse,  and  mention to you "the   rules   laid  down by Statute as to these wild  horses.'   The Statute that has  been in force for a great many  years in   this  country   declares  that it shall not be lawful to allow a stallion of two years and  upwards to run at large from the  first of August bf one year to the  first of May Df . the next  year.  The next section says that the  o-vner of one of these stallions  running at large in that forbidden time  is liable to a fine of  fifty dollars so it may not be an  advantage to betheowner of one  of these unbranded   horses   on  public lands; it may cost you $50  simply for letting it run at large.  There is another section which  says; the owner of a band of  mares finding a stallion running  with his band may detain it.   If  he does, then it is his duty to advertise publicly that he has de-.  tained it; give notice also to the J  government, and then if there is  no person claiming in within  a  reasonable time he may sell it".  "Some   years ago an act was  passed    authorizing   people   to  shoot these   wild stallions, but  that was repealed,  and in 3.906  an act was passed by which it  was declared that upon the written request of at least five owners ranging horses upon the public lands of any district a license  may be issued to any person  to  shoot unbranded horses running  wild upon public lands,  I think that is all. I hope that  it ;may be of use to some of you.  The point I wish to impress upon  you is this; that a man incurs a  very great responsibility in. picking up and claiming an unbranded horse unless he is prepared to  prove, that he owns it; he may  get into a great deaf of'trouble;'  him  WELL  PICKED AND THOROUGHLY   CLEAN  Middlesboro Collieries Ltd.
