Valley Coal ;& .Coke  Co., the Diamond Vale and the :  Coal Hill Syndicate.   ...  "The valley is full of coal," declared Mr. Mills. "You .have  unlimited quantities of it he��e  and the C. P. R.  is prepared' to  take all that the local mines can  produce.'' He was particularly  enthusiastic about the Wilson  seam of coal in the Coal Hill  Syndicate's  mine.

It will .be a splendid  stimulus with the result that  properties now operating will increase their outputs while those  still in the prospecting stages  will likely install _ plants, and  cater to the demand. With a  permanent inspector here it will  mean that the quality of the coal  will be materially improved.  H. A.

THE COAL COMPANY  The announcement in last  weeks' issue that the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke Co.. propose to  shortly increase the output of  their mines to 1500 tons daily is  plaising- news to the-people of  Nicola valley.  Th^comi a ly is largely dependent upon the Canadian Pacific  railway, homever, in the matter  of cars and it is sincerely hoped  that this corporation will make  every provision for the requirements of the coal company by  way of providing Sufficient cars  to haul the coal. The increase  of the production means the employment of many more men and  the advent into this district of  additional* families. It is such  institutions as the Nicola Valley  Coal & Coke Co. that can build  up a town and we can well look  forward to substantial development in the very near future if  the coal company receive the  sympathy and encouragement  that is their just due to receive.  A daily production of 1500 tons  will compare favorably with any  other coal property in the province and the people of Merritt  and Middlesboro as well as;Nicola  valley as a whole have every  reason to take a pride in the resident coal producing agency.  JVIuch of the good work that is  how being accomplished is due  to the foresight and splendid  executive ability  of  superinten-  in the.spring in order to maintain good sanitation. There is  no more valuablo asset to the  credit of any community than  good sanitary conditions arid the  peculiar situation of the town of  Merritt located as it is on a flat,  makes fit almost compulsory to  have a general cleanup in the  spring and thus secure the general good health of the community.  Tne movement lauched by the  Nicola Valley Board of Trade to  secure 'an improved telegraph  service should receive the best  support of the local public. The  present: service is hot" only *-'iinadequate bnt lamentably inefficient. We require the best that  the telegraph company can give  us and there is no reason why we  should not receive it.  having reach the $45,000 mark.  A unique offer is being made by  the firm for the forthcoming Ag-  ricultutal Show to be held in September. They will give aprizeof  $25.00 for the best' show of vegetables grown in thedistric, and  will give away the seed to those  who apply. These seeds have  just arrived from Messrs Sutton  & Son, of Reading, England,  Whose name ensures tho  best of  quality.  _ : o r-.  STORY OF THE PIONEERS  Owing to lack of space it was  impossible to publish the eighth  installment of pioneers' sketches  this week. 'SeyeraL columns of  reading matter as well as considerable advertising has been  crowded out this issue but different arrangements will be made  to provide the complete service  for next week.  NEW SETTLFRS COMING  New settlers a*e reaehing\Nicola  valley almost daily. They represent a prosperous class of farmers  principally from the east and  from the western States. Mr. J-  Williams who owns land on the  Princeton road about seven miles  from Nicola came from Little  Fort, Minn., on Wednesday night  train and will take up his land at  once. He was accompanied by-  wife as well as P.L. Zeigelmeir  and wife and F.R. Presher, also  of Little Fort. The other two  will locate land somewhere in  this district.  Ever since we entered the local  field as a newspaper we have  advocated a publicity campaign  and it is gratifying to know that  the Nicola Valley Board of Trade  has taken the matter up actively.  There is no better agency to promote the development of any  district than a well organized  and properly directed campaign  of publicity ' and- the time was  never more opportune for Nicola  valley than it is today.  deht,7James Gray?  ���The policy of the company involves the construction of one  thousand coke ovens just as soon  as railway connection is provided  with the boundary by means of  the Kettle Valley railway. There  is an excellent coke market in  the boundary and we feel assured that the manufacture of coke  at Middlesboro will be attended  by wonderful success.  ���iWe have reached the season of  the year wHen it is imperative  that hpusehblders-andvbnsiness  men should place their premises  m a sanitary condition.

It  marks the dawn of a new era for  the local coal industry and is the  harbinger of wonderful development in the properties th rough-  out the Nicola valley. Larger  development and increased labor  means the employment, ofv more  men and incidentally the promotion of  settlement    in   these  -o-  THE NEW STORY  With this issue the first installment of the serial story,  '' The Lion and the Mouse' 'is  published.

Widely known   and  highly esteemed in all parts the Woodward family furnishes much food for  f;ood thought and the matter was care-  ully and fully treated by the writer.  This week another sphere is sought and  the Indians and their reserves contribute to the subject matter of the  article.���Ed.  On leaving the Woodward  settlement the Naik Indian reserve is reached. Here can be  seen a splendid stretch of agricultural land. Whoever made  the selection for the Indians  chose wisely.  Looking back to a date of over  thirty years little cultivation  was then done by the Indians.  Rude as the condition of the reserve may now appear, it is much  improved from what it was when  first seen by me. The Indian  shows himself capable of progress. If he had been given the  advantages of civilization and  Christianity without the debasing  and destructive influences to  which he had been subjected,.instead of being a decadent and  dying race, he might have proved himself the equal of those  who now look upon him in pity  and disdain. Physically he was  of a strong mould. But few of  those who remain can be regarded as specimens of the ancestral type.  In years gone by the Naik.  reserve had a much larger population than it now possesses,  which is doubtless true of all  other Indian reserves, where to  the shame of the white man be it  said, his vices have proved the  bane of the natives.  In recalling some of the Indians  of former i^ears, we can think of  several  who  for    stength    and  grace wonld have   served for a  =seulptor=s^mo.del.____JJhe____Jnd  acquaintance with nature in some  respects is surprisingly minute.  He is a keen observer. If he  only could have written what he  knew of animals, natural history  might have been enriched. Living amidst nature and cultivating the faculty of discernment  his illustrations are apt and often  beautiful. On one occasion I  hastened to an Indian chief who  while reciting grievances arising  from encroachment upon what he  considered his lands, diiplaped  considerable oratorical ability.  Some figures of speech which he  used were beautiful and his gestures were singularly graceful  and expressive.  In action   Talmage   the great  pulpit orator and almost match-  taken a second place as an actor  alongside of nature's untutored  son.  In our estimate of native races  it is well to retrace the stream  of history and consider what  our own progenitors were in the  distant past. It may help us to  be charitable in our opinions respecting those whose civilization  is still crude alongside of ours.  Transforming influences and  forces have been at work in our  history to which those who are  but now awakening from barbaric slumber have not been subjected.  Some of the nations have been  purified in the crucible of civilization, and they are on the lead  today, not so much because of  natural superiority and inherent  virtues, but on account of environment and the light which  came into their life lines. It ill  becomes us to despise the Indian  Or spurn the Asiatic.  We can abhor their vices but  they are human and have the  possibilities of regenerated manhood and have a claim upon our  kindest and best efforts.  A cry is raised against the extent of some of the Indian reserves���that they are unjustifiably large. Probably through  the inroads of death and the rate  of mortality is high among the  Indians, several reserves are  greatly depopulated. But great  care and strictest justice should  be observed wherever any  changes in ownership are effected. On the west side of the  Naik reserve, what was formerly  the Coutlee ranch, owned by the  late Alex. Coutlee, but now the  property of Mr. H. S. Cleasby, is  situated.=,^As_j^je___i!emember���this  land it was chiefly covered with  young cottonwoods. Today it is  a splendid farm of several hundred acres and requiring but  little irrigation. The soil being  alluvial deposit is of the best.  The present owner is a skillful  farmer and no doubt knew the  splendid quality of the soil���and  now has great reason to be satisfied with his purchase���as it  has increased manifold in value.  The Coutlee of today had not  materialized in the time of which  we write. Our recollection is  that Mr. Coutlee was then located  in or about where Jack Charter's  old cabin now stands ou the north  side of the Conklin ranch. There  he kept a small store which was  a  convenience to   some  of the  L.

He expects to make  the trip up the river about ninety  miles in two days.: We all wish  him good luck.  Capt. Thomas D Short, one of  the old pioneers, has come to live  here. At present he is building  a two story log house which is an  immense affair, and by the looks  of things the captain is here to  stay. ;'  It is about time something was  done to compel the C. P.

That the business on hand  '"was" of. the greatest significance was  ���easily to be inferred from the concerned aud anxious expression on the  directors' faces and the eagerness of  the employees as they plied each other  'y.'ith questions.

JLue.y    uiij^ut   a..-.  well try to blow up Gibraltar. The  fact is the public is seriously aroused  this time, and the railroads are in a  panic."  It was true. The railroad, which  heretofore had considered itself super,  rior to law, had found itself checked in  its career of outlawry and oppression.  The railroad, this modern octopus of  steam and steel which stretches its  greedy tentacles out over the land, had  at last been brought to book.  John Burkett Ryder, the richest man  in the world���the man whose name had  spread to the farthest corners of the  earth because of his wealth, and whoso  money, instead of being a blessing,  promised to become not only a curse  to himself, but a source of.dire peril  to all. mankind���was a genius born of  the railroad age. No other age could  have brought him forth. ; His peculiar  talents fitted exactly the conditions pf  his time. Attracted early in life to  the newly discovered oil fields of Pennsylvania, he became a dealer in the  raw product and later a refiner, acquiring with capital, laboriously saved,  first one refinery, then another. The  railroads were cutting each other's  throats to secure the freight business  of the oil men, and John Burkett Ryder saw his opportunity. He made  secret overtures to the road, guaranteeing a vast amount of business if he  could get 'exceptionally low rates, and  the i 1 legal compact was made. His  competitors, undersold in the market,  stood no chance, and one by one they  were crushed out of existence. Ryder  called these maneuvers "business." The  world called them brigandage. But the  Colossus prospered and slowly built up  the foundations of the extraordinary  fortune which is the talk and the wonder of the world today. Master now  of the oil situation, Ryder succeeded  in his ambition of organizing the Empire Trading company, the most powerful, the most secretive and the most  wealthy ���'.���business institution the com-  m.M,.-i:_!   wc.rl !  has  vet known.  Yet with all this success John Burkett Ryder was still not content. He  was now a rich man, richer by many  millions than he had dreamed he could  ever be, but still he was unsatisfied.  He became money mad. He wanted  ^tb^be^rieher^stjll, to_be theji-ichest man j  in the world, the richest man the world  had ever known. And the richer he got j  the stronger the idea grew upon him  with all the force of a morbid obsession.  Yet this commercial pirate, this Napoleon Hi finance, was not a wholly  bad man. He had his redeeming qualities, like most bad men. His most pronounced weakness, and the one that  had made him the most conspicuous  man oi" his time, was an entire lack of  moral principle. No honest or honorable man could have amassed such stupendous wealth. In other words, John  Ryder 'had not been equipped by nature with a conscience. He had no  ense ��i right or wrong or justice  where bis ow:> interests were concerned. He vvris : ue prince'of egoists. On  the other hand, he possessed qualities  ���vhich, with some people, count as  virtue.".' He was pious and regular iu  .its attend:!nee at church, and, while he  had done but little for charity, he  was known to have eueouraeed the giv  ing of aims by members of his family.  which consisted of a wife, whose timid  voice was rarely - heard, .���"���aiid a spji J.efr  ferson. who was the destiued successor  of his gigantic estate.  Such was the man who was the real  power behind the Southern and Transcontinental   railroad.     More; than   any  I one  else Ryder   had   been   aroused   by  ��� the present  legal  action,  not so much  I for the money interest at stake as that  i any one should dare to thwart his will.  .  It had been a pet scheme of his, this  ' purchase for a song when the land was  ! cheap of some thousand acres along the  ! line, and it is true that at the time of  the purchase there had been some, idea  ' of laying the land out as a park, but  i real estate values had increased in as-  | touishing   fashion,   the   road  could   no  ; longer afford to carry out the original  scheme and  had attempted to dispose  of the property for building purposes,  including a right of way for a branch  road.    The news,   made public in  the  newspapers, had raised a storm of pro  test.   The people in the vicinity claim :  ed that  the railroad secured the  land  on the express condition of a park being laid out, and  in order to make  a  legal test they had secured an injunction,   which   had    been   sustained    by  Judge  Rossmore of the United States  circuit court.  These details  were hastily  told and  retold  by one clerk to another as the  babel of voices in the inner room grew  louder and  more directors kept, arriving from the ever busy elevators.    The  meeting was called for 3 o'clock.    An  other  five  minutes and  the chairman  would rap for order.    A tall, strongly  built   man   with   white  mustache   and  kindly  smile emerged from  the directors' room and, addressing One of the  clerks, asked:  "Has Mr. Ryder arrived yet?"  The   alacrity   with    which   the   employee hastened forward to reply would  indicate -that  his   interlocutor   was   a  person of more than  ordinary   importance.  "No,   senator,   not  yet.     We  expect  him any minute."    Then with a defer  ential smile he added, "Mr. Ryder usually arrives on the stroke, sir."  The senator gave a nod of acquiescence and. turning on his heel, greeted  with a grasp of the hand and affable  smile his fellow directors as they passed in by twos and threes.  Senator Roberts was in the world of  politics what; his friend John Burkett  Ryder was in the world of finance���a  leader of men. He started life in Wis:  consin as an errand boy, was educated  in the public schools and later became  clerk in a dry goods store, finally going into business for his own account  on a large scale. He was elected to  the legislature, where his ability as an  organizer soon gained the friendship  of the men in power, and later was  sent to congress, where he was quickly  initiated in the game of corrupt politics. In 1885 he entered the United  States senate. He soon became the  acknowledged leader of a considerable  _majorit.v_^pf_the���Republican  senators,  and from then on he was a figure to  be reckoned with. A very ambitious  man, with a great love of power and  few scruples, it is little wonder that  only the practical or dishonest side of  politics appealed to him. He was in  politics for all there was in it, and he  saw in his lofty position only a splendid opportunity for easy graft.  He did not hesitate to make such  alliances with corporate interests seeking influence at Washington as would  enable him. to accomplish this purpose,  and in this way he had met and formed a strong friendship with John Burkett Ryder. Each, being a master in  his own field, was useful to the other.  Neither was troubled with qualms of  conscience, so they never quarreled. If  Ryder interests needed anything in the  senate, Roberts and his followers were  there to attend to it. Just now the  cohort was marshaled in defense of  the railroads against the" attacks of  the new rebate bill. Ln fact, Ryder  managed  to keep the senate busy all  the time. When, on the other bancs,  the senators wanted anything���and  they; often did���Ryder saw that they  got it;^ lower fates ffor this one, a i<fat  jot) for; that one. not forgetting themselves.!; Senator Roberts was already  a very rich man, and, although the  world often wondered where he got it,  1-.0. one had the courage to ask him.  But the Republican leader was stirred with an ambition greater than that  of controlling a majority in the senate.  He had a daughter, a marriageable  young woman who, at least in her father's opinion, would make a desirable  wife for any man. His friend Ilyder  had a son. and this son was the only  heir to the greatest fortune ever  amassed by one man, a fortune which  at its present rate of increase by the  time the father died and the young  couple were ready to inherit would  probably amount to over $0,000,000,000.  Could the human mind grasp the possibilities of such a colossal fortune? It  staggered the imagination. Its owner  or the man who controlled it would be  master of the world! Was not this a  prize any man might well set himself  out to win? The senator was thinking  of it now as he stood exchanging baual  remarks with the men who accosted  him If he could only bring off that  marriage, he would be content. The  ambition of his life would be attained.  There was no difficulty as far as John  Ryder was concerned. He favored the  match and had often spoken of it. Indeed, ,. Ryder desired it,-for such au  alliance would naturally further his  business interests in every way Roberts knew that his daughter Kate had  more than a liking for Ryder's handsome young son. Moreover, Kate was  practical, like her father, and had  sense enough to realize what it would  mean to be the mistress of the Ryder  fortune. No, Kate was all right, but  there was young Ryder to reckon with.  It would take two in this case to make  a  bargain.  Jefferson Ryder was, in truth, an entirely different man from his father.  It was difficult to realize that both had  .sprung from the same stock. A college bred boy, with all the advantages  his father's wealth could give him. he  had inherited from the parent ouly  those characteristics which would have  made him successful even if born poor  ���activity, pluck, application, dogged  obstinacy, alert mentality. To these  qualities he added what his father  sorely lacked���a high notion of honor,  a keen sense of right and wrong. He  had the..'honest .man's' contempt for  meanness of any description, and he  had iittle patience with the lax, so  called business morals of the day.  For  him   a  dishonorable or  dishonest  It was John Burkett Ryder, the Colossus.  action cotsid have no apologist, and he  could see no difference between the  crime of the hungry wretch who stole  a loaf of bread and the coal baron who  systematically robbed both his employ-  | (Continuedd next week,)  1  u  M  8  I  1  i!  i *���&:;?

Investors are beginning- to to display considerable  interest in the holdings of the  concern which are located up the  valley from Nicola Lake a distance  of two miles.  Considerable prospect work  has already been done on the property, there being a fifty foot  shaft already sunk. A nine foot  seam of coal was reached with  the sinking of this shaft.  It is some time since the prospecting work was done and the  original locators, George Murray  and William Munro, have decided  to put the property on the market again and to interest investors if possi ble.  That the coal in these mines is  of good quality is the testimony  of J. Sutton, the Dunsmuir expert, who inspected the property  some time ago. Amongst the  largest shareholders is Hon. R.  G. .Tatlow,. former Minister of  Finance. The opening up and  development of the South Nicola  coal fields would mean much to  Nicola valley and its people.  -o-  BOUQUET FOR THE NEWS  ''The News is undoubtedly the  best paper I have seen in the  upper country.

Business lots in Merritt will no  '7.. doubt b^ in great demand this fall  at twice thepresent current prices  the reason why Merritt real estate  should become very  valuable,   is  on account of large varity of natural resources  which  surroun-  this favourable town. The majority of them are at present in their  initial stage of development,  but  are capable with legitimate development of becoming large producers,   and   thereby   supply  a  greater   pay-roll    for    Merritt.  The present investor in   Merritt  real estate knows of the large coal  basin which   surrounds "Merritt,  but the majoritv   of them  know  nothing at all   of the   other   natural   resourses  which will  un.  doubtedly be extensively developed in the near future;  At the head of the  Coldwater  river there are large rich gold���  copper deposits owned by the famous  Granby Co.    The   natural  out-let   for this immense  undeveloped   tonnage   is   down   the  Coldwater river to Merritt, where  smelters will be erected to  treat  the ores from the   surrounding  mining camps.    Then about four  or five miles to  the  north-west  of Merritt, there are large  hematite iron deposits (bog-iron) lying idle waiting capital to  build  large iron and steel industries.  The Nicola Valley Coal & Coke  company have negotiated with  British Capital for the immediate  construction of a large number  of coke ovens, and when the  Kettle Valley railway makes  final connections with their present spur in1;the Boundary country, the largest smelters in Canada which are at present situated  at Grand Porks and Greenwood  will be supplied with coke from  the coal mines around Merritt.  This alone will build up ^Merritt  Coldwater river arid the lumber  industry will also  help towards  the future prosperity of Merritt.  The present demand for shacks  arid cottages greatly exceeds the  supply.   Mr. Frank Bailey has a  number of standing orders  from  ten ants who require shacks and  cottages.    Owing to the fact of a  large portion of this   district's  payroll going back to Vancouver ]  on   the    speculation  of  outside  coast real estate, there is not at  present   enough    local     capital  available for the necessary  construction    of   cottages for rent  whereas the interest received on  the money expended for the  legitimate construction of suitable  homes would ten times excel the  remote-possibility of an advance  in the now over-flatulent  outside  Van couver real estate.  13  Over One Hundred Years on the Market  Testimonials Reach the Million Mark  What Better do You Want  Celebrated Australian  AutoHioBile Qo.
