R.  and Kettle Valley Contracts Today  CONSTRUCTION   BY    JUNE  Government Will Control Rates  ���Bill Provides   for Branch  from Kamloops  (From Our Own Correspondent)  Press Gallery, Victoria, March  4.���The house adjourned'at 1.10  o'clock this morning- after passing  the Canadian Northern and Kettle Valley railway bills. Construction on both these lines  must start within' three months.  In debate on CanadianNorthern  Brewster, Hawthornwaite, Ross  and Bowser spoke. Brewster and  Hawthornwaite criticized the bill  severely and Bowser closed the  debate at 1 a. m., with a crushing reply, taunting Brewster with  having- had his speech ��� made for  him by the Liberal committee.  Jardine voted with- the government on the bill but Brewster  and the two Socialists opposed.  Brewsted supported the Kettle  Valley, bill which was only opposed in division by Socialists.  The C. N. R. bill gives the  government complete control of  rates and provides for a branch  line from Kamloops to Nicola.  There are a large number of bills  before the house, but nothing  very striking. The estimates are  are completed. The house will  lfi^ly=firash=its^  few days.  Now that incorporation has  been temporarily set aside the  matter is being considered in  other quarters but so far without any tangible result.  The citizens of Merritt will  have an opportunity to give this  important problem full consideration at a meeting" that will be  convened in Menzie's hall, Thursday evening, March 10th. The  meeting has been called by the  Merritt Fire Co. but it is for the  purpose of discussing fire protection and the importance of the  question should demand a large  attendance of citizens.  IN  BUSINESS    26  YEARS  Marcus Woodward Was One  of Nicola's Early Pioneers  To be in business in Nicola  Valley continuously for twenty-  six years is-the experience of R.

MARCUS WOODWARD  this district his residence here  dating as far back as November  8th, 1871.  Few were the settlers when he  came and there was nothing inviting about the vast wilderness  that was flung along the shores  of the Nicola River. But many  have been the changes. He has  lived to see the railroad penetrate  the wilderness and give access to  the outside markets for the products of the soil and mill.    He  has lived to see the discovery of  vast deposits of coal and to see  the black nuggets mined and  sent out to serve as fuel for heating and motive power. He has  lived to see iudustries developed  that offered little when he first  came into contact with them and  now he stands On the threshold  of an era that is going to witness  industrial development of an unprecedented character and to see  a season of railroad activity that  will assuredly mean much to the  land in which he has lived for so  many decades.  But this is the story of the  pioneer. It means a struggle but  happy are the results that follow  that struggle and today Mr.  Woodward is enjoying the  fruits  (Continued  on  page  two)  John Houston  Has. Passed.

He  entered  the rowing game in  1879 at  the  age oi  16,  and  began  skating in  1883, when  29  years of age,   and for  ten years  had    almost    an unbroken  string   of   victories     to    his     credit.  During his career he skated GO races  exclusive   of    exhibitions,     and     was  beaten     only    five     times,    three  by  Dowd,  once by Crowell,  and once by  Paulsen,   the    latter   owing  to falls.  In 1892, he wnct to  Norway to meet  the famous Hagen,  the champion    of  Europe.      McCormick    was     then 39  years   old,   and was     beaten   for the  world's  title.     He  retired after  this  trip.    He was an honest professional  of the best type of sportsmen.  The   Quilchena Hotel  Quilchena can well boast of one  of the finest hotel buildings in the  upper country.    Built two years  ago  at a cost   of   $30,000   and  luxuriously furnished in every  department the hostelry is one  that will compare favorably with  centres.

Born in Middlesex county, Ontario, near the city of London, in  1847 Mr. Woodward was but a  stripling of seventeen when he  started out for the great west.

At that time the hotel  was one of the principal stopping  places on the old stage line between Kamloops and Spences  Bridge. The old hotel afterwyrds  passed into the hands of Edward  O'Rovrke and later Stanley Kirby  being acquired by Joseph Guichon  on June 1,1908. The erection of  the new and more attractive  building was immediately undertaken.  SPECIAL FOR THE FIGHT  The  big battle   between   James   J.  Jeffries  and Jack  Johnson    for    the  heavyweight     championship    of     the  world has been fixed    for San Francisco for the Glorious Fourth.     Con.  Jones   as leader  of  the sporting  element in Vancouver has completed arrangements  for a special  train  from  Vancouver,     and    many from points  outside  of  Vancouver  will  doubtless  take     advantage.       The    train    will  leave    Vancouver    on    the night    of  July  1st.   and will  give  the tourists  two days   for     sight    seeing    in  the  South  after the fight.

There is no reason why a three  cornered league, could not be operated with success in Nicola Valley every winter and the local  promoters of the game should see  to it that another season of inactivity does not occur again.

"J Friday, March 4. 1910  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  DAILY MAIL SERVICE  Saturday Sunset  Supports  This  Public Spirited Move  The Saturday ^Sunset ever devoted to the interests of Nicola  Valley has come out in support  of a daily mail service on the  local branch. Here is what Editor  McConnell says:  ' 'It is reported that the residents  of the Nicola Valley are about to  petition the Dominion Government to establish a tri-weekly  mail service by stage from  Spences Bridge to Nicola, via  Merritt, Coutlee and intermediate  points.  "Although there is railway  connection between these points  via the C. P. R. Nicola branch  line, yet the C. P. R. gives but a  three times-a-week service���a  service entirely inadequate for  the needs of the valley. Under  the present conditions for example, a letter is mailed in Nicola  on Thursday morning at 7:30 a.m.  for Vancouver���no reply can be  received to-this letter until Monday evening at 8:30 p.m.���a space  of five days, although the distance  to Vancouver is only 225 miles.  This state of affairs is extremely  disadvantageous to the business  people of this valley. Mail is  distributed at 8:30 p.m.���it must  be replied to that same evening  and mailed, in order to catch the  outgoing train, at 7:30 a.m. the  following. morning.  " It is to be hoped, however,  that the C. P. R. officials will investigate these conditions and  take the only practical course, to  rectify this state of affairs, that  is, by establishing a daily mail  service on the Nicola branch line  and give,to the citizens of the  valley, what is their due consideration."-  fire insurance companies are  transacting business in British  Columbia opened its sessions at  Vancouver yesterday.
