Advices to this [effect were received by the secretary of the Nicola Valley Board  of Trade this week and Superintendent Dan Sutherland promised to send in a good man.

That  will  mean  the employment of many  more men and the betterment of  conditions generally."     This  is  the   encouraging announcement  of James  Gray,  superintendent  of the  Nicola  Valley' Coal, and  Coke Co.'s mines at Midblesboro.  Two large new tunnels are now  being bored and other  changes,  and improveniBnts are being effected  in the plant which-will I  hasten this increased production".  The staff at the mines is being  increased weekly by eight  men  and  now numbers  about  three  hundred.     The scarcity of cars  has   somewhat    retarded   operations though   the development  work has been  rushed forward  as expeditiously as possible.  A large tunnel which ultimately will reach 13,000 feet is  being bored between No. 1 and  No. 2 and will be completed in a  little over one week. It is nine  feet high by six feet wide and  will cost in the neighborhood of  two hundred dollars. . The boring is now only a few feet from  the coal and it is expected that  a big seam will be reached. This  tunnel is being built in a southeasterly direction.  The other tunnel is a subsidiary  one to the present No.' 2 arid  will be largely of, stone. It  branches off the main tunnel  five hundred feet back of the  surface . and follows a southwesterly course. It will be eight  feet high and six,feet wide and  will cost $1000. It only requires  120 feet of boring before the  coal is.reached.  ''If we could get the cars we  could put double - shifts on the  tipples right away and that would  double/the present output" remarked Supt. Gray, and it looks,  as though it was up to the C.  P. R.  NOMINATIONS CLOSE TONIGHT  ���-���*  Candidates for Popularity Contest Must  Get Names in.

Arrangements are being perfected by the attorney-general's  .department at Victoria, for a  much more stringent and effective enforcement of the law prohibiting the export of manufactured British Columbia logs.  In   the   past steamers found  with booms in tow  suspected of  being bound  for a foreign  port  have merely given bonds and  escaped, it being impossible as a  general thing for identification  to follow the logs and convictions  as a rule being attended with  the utmost difficulty.  Hereafter the government proposes to accept no more bonds  but to seize both steamer and  tow where infraction of the lawT  can be brought home, selling  both logs and  vessel as  equally  guilty principals.  bermen held at Vancouver a few  months ago.  Among other matters taken up  were labor conditions, the position to be taken before the fire  insurance comission when it sits  in Nelson in regard to fire insurance matters, and recent legislation at Victoria   particularly  Land Act Notice  KAMLOOPS  YALE  TRICT.

HOURS FOR NURSES  No person with the least ap-  r.r3ciation of humanitarianism  will fail to sympathise with the  effort now being launched by the  Trades and Labor council of Vancouver to secure better hours and  improved conditions. generally  for the nurses in the General  hospital in that city. What is  true of & Vancouver hospitals is  true of every hospital throughout . the province. The . burden  that is imposed on the members  of the nursing profession is altogether too cumbersome and it  devolves upon the public to give  cordial support to any movement  that will tend to the betterment  of conditions.  Ten and twelve hours of duty  is the order in almost every ihsti-  . tution of this character and. the  ,. nature of the work too often'ih-  ' volves severe physical and mental .endurance. Many the young  girl who has gone into a hospital  to take up nursing and to thus  gratify her laudable and self-  sacrificing ambition to serve  humanity has been forced from  her chosen profession with health  in a precarious state, her physique on the threshhold of collapse  and with her worthy ambitions  blighted as a result of the unusually severe test. to which she  was sabmitted in the course of  her training.  There is no more noble pro-  ���fession^then_that__of_jo_ursing.^  Fannie Nightingale's name will  go down into history as one of  the noblest of women, whose  life was given to self sacrifice  and endurance in the interests  of humanity���devoted to the  noble and heroic profession of  nursing. Though the scene of  her endeavours were laid in the  midst of more severe conditions  still the principle surrounding  her labor was the , same that  surrounds the labor, of every  nurse on the staffs of our hospitals today.  Many the doctor will tell you  that it was careful nursing that  rescued a.patient from the grasp  of the grim  reaper and all too  true it is, Medical science today  would be lost without an efficient  and well organized system of  nursing. . Then too the matter  of remuneration, for the nurses  might well receive serious attention. At the present time the  stipends are ridiculously low and  wholly inadequate.  One of the greatest essentials  in a probationer isgccd sound  health. It conduces to successful practice and to the improvement of opportunities .. for the  patient. But under the gruelling system that obtains in our  hospitals throughout the land it  is almost impossible to secure the  continued robust health and  physique of the ^training nurses.  Better hours would be a splendid  agency for&prom,oting the. comfort and happiness of these self  sacrificing women and -we sincerely trust that the worthy  effort of the Trades and Labor  conncil of. Vancouver will not  only meet with the fullest measure of success but that it will.be  emulated by other governing  bodies throughout our land and  particularly in communities  where there are those institutions  that cater to the health and well  being of humanity.  It begins to look as though the  trade difficulties between Canada  and the United States would be  satisfactorily adjusted if recent  press despatches are authentic.  It would be inimical to the best  interests of either country^were  the maximum tariffs to be operated. Our trade interests are in  many ways common and there is  nothing to lose aud everything  to, gain by operating the. minimum tariffs. We believe in tariff and in the adequate protection  of home industries but a certain  measure of reciprocity is good  seasoning and would serve both  nations in good stead.  The provincial government and  particularly the. department of  publicworksis-to-be-commended  upon the splendid spiritcof enterprise that it has displayed in its  decision to provide an independent  road foreman for Nicola Valley  and contiguous districts. Particularly during the winter months and early spring will the  value of this official be appreciated. The roads are often left in  bad repair by the heavy snow  and spring freshets and not nntil  the   regular   road   gangs make  their periodical visit to the district are any of the necessary  repairs effected. The importance of the district and the volume of work available fully justifies the appointment of a special  man for this district.  The movement to secure bGat  service for Nicola Lake, is t~otie.  that is worthy of the best support of Nicola Valley. There is  no body of inland water that  offers a greater wealth of scenery  than Nicola lake and combined  with the splendid facilities that  a service of this nature would  provide, tha enterprisa would  be valuable not alone as an assett  to tourist traffic but as a transportation agency for commercial  trade. The boards of trade  would do well to urge the matter  before proper authorities.  We regret that the letter anent  the establishment of, a swimming  pool in Merritt was received too  late for publication. last week.  The purport of the letter would  commend itself to any man who  has the interests of his town at  heart. Swimming is one of the  most valued arts and he who can  triumph in this art is indeed fortunate. One writer has told us  that ability to swim is one. of the  great assets allotted to man.  The question of establishing a  swimming pool is .one that should  receive consideration -. though  there may be some difficulty in  financing the scheme in view  of  the fact that.Merritt is not incorporated and there is ho formal  agency of. promoting the establishment of an institution , of  this character.      .  WM. RILEY  AND WIFE  (Continued- from page one)  in the many expressions of gratitude that fall to her lot from the  scores of honles where her valued  services as a nurse have been  employed. Her happy face as,  nurse has been the first to greet  many of the present residents of  this valley upon their entrance  into this world.  Possessing many interesting  characteristics, few women are  more entertaining than "Mammy" Riley, and so closely has  her life been linked with the  history of the valley that many  regard her as one of the living  authorities of the past. Hos-  pitable in the fullest otegree and  generous almost to a fault there  is no home in the valley more  eagerly ; sought than the Riley  home and there is always the  warmest welcome���-it matters  not be he* friend or stranger.  Born at Mediville, Ont.,, in  1844 Mr. Riley was early cast  upon the world for his parents  died shortly after his birth.  Following various pursuits in  many parts of Ontario it was not  until '78 that he came west.  Travelling by the old Central  Pacific as far as San Francisco  he and,his good wife.there took  boat for Victoria. Coming by  steamer as far as Yale Mr. Riley  left his wife and children there  and tramped on foot in company  with a friend to Lytton and  Spences   Bridge     and   on   into  Nicola. Mrs. Riley _ and the  ..children.followed shortly afterwards by stage. .  Mr, Riley came to Nicola to  enter the employ of George Fen-  som who conducted a sawmill  near the falls in the vibinity of  the present home of the family.  He had worked for Mr. Fensom  back east. Man^ of the . old  timers were then living here including William Voght, J. Garcia  A. Coutlee, Panl Gilley, John  Clapperton, Edwin Dalley, Jos.  Blackbourne, R. Hamilton* John  Gilmore and F. Mickle. Well  he remembers the January morning in '94 that John Gilmore and  his two daughters were burned  to death in their home., Twice  .was Mr, Riley burned out of his  Jhome but he now occupies the  large and roomy house which he  built on the corner of his six  acres of land.  Managing the^Fensom sawmill  for a time, then teaming on the  Yale road, -for almost a year at  Granite Creek during, the boom,  he eventually settled down to his  trade as as blacksmith and for  sixteen years has ~ conducted his  smithy in Nicola. -  .. Mrs. Riley is also a native of  Ontario���formerly Mary Hyatt  of Milton. They were married  at theoldEpiscopalchurchinthe  township of Bentick, County  Grey, on ApriK24, 1866. -They  have had their ups and downs  and their share of sorrows for  seven of their twelve children  have died, though the five surviving ones are near them.

Expre:sions of appreciation are coming  to us from all quarters and the series  promises to have a historiial value to  the people of Nicola ; valley. There is  no more interesting work than to reflect the past and in the master hand of  Mr. Murray we believe we have found  the man best fitted to undertake ��� it.���  Ed.  In 1875 there were three families of Woodward's settled in  Lower Nicola, all within a stretch  of two miles. The other residents were Messrs. H. Lindley,  T. Schwartz and R. Turner.  Mr. and Mrs. T. Woodward with  a young family made their way  to California by the overland  rout3 before the advent of railway to the Pacific. Those who  would face the arduous, dangerous and severe fatigue of such a  prolonged pilgrimage proved  themselves to be possessed of  more than ordinary pluck and  .heroism. To undertake a journey  of thousands of miles over an  unknown route, vast portions of  which were marked only by the  foot prints cof those who went  before them, with unbridged  streams and rivers to ford,  ravine and canyons to be travers  ed,  desolating storms to be encountered, and along part of the Joseph Irwin <of ���Nelson and Mrs.  was chosen as their place of residence. Mr. Woodward and his  two sons, Harvey and Marcus,  located land and engaged in  farming and stock raising, and  also in a way suitable to the  wants of the settlement installed  a flour mill, also a sawmill, which  met a great need. Both Mr. and  Mrs. Woodward lived to upwards  of eighty years of age, respected  in life, lamented in death, they  have passed from the earthly to  the heavenly citizenship. Three  sons, the,two already named, and  Rev. Melvin Woodward, a prominent clergyman of the Methodist church in California, and  two daughters, Mrs. Turner, a  resident of California, and Mrs.  Johnstone, an adopted daughter;  survive them.  Mr. Henry Woodward, a brother of Thomas, also came from  Ontario with his family and settled in Nicola. His household  comprised five daughters andjfour  sons all of whom survive. The  daughters are all married, two  of whom Mrs. George "Clapperton  and Mrs. Archibald Irwin are  residents of Kamloops, Mrs.  Cook   of   Granite   Creek,   Mrs.  way exposed to attack by hostile  bands of Indians, displayed high  courage and noble daring.

The old home has passed into  the hands of others. v But the  kindly welcome so of ten accorded  to the writer is not forgotten,  and the changes wrought by the  stern hand of time are not without sad recollections.  Mr.   Marcus    Woodward   and  family   still    reside   at    Lower  Nicola.    These along with three  sons of Mr. Harvey Woodward  are all .who remain of the early  Woodward settlement.   To some,  four or five families grouped together in contiguous settlement  may seem an  insignificant community.     It was not from the  point of. view of 35 years ago.  There were but few places apart  from the embryo towns where so  many    neighbors   in   proximity  could be found.    Mr. Archibald  Irwin,   now    Indian    agent   at  Kamloops,   taught school  alternating between the Forks, Nicola  and  Lower Nicola,   making his  home   at    Lower   Nicola.       In  those days Lower Nicola was the  home and  centre of Methodism  in the interior of B. C, as Nicola  and Upper Nicola were  of Pres-  byterianism. Demoninational  lines were not very marked at  that time. Services were few  as the missionaries, had wide  stretches to coygrj Attendstriee  in proportion to the population  was better than that of today.  Why should it have been- so ?  The settlers. of that time had  been longer denied the privilege  of religious ordinance than those  of today, so that if lack of such  advantages could be urged as an  excuse for indifference, the pri  vation was greater in former  days than now. Whatever the  defects of the early settlers, in  moral fibre they were not inferior to many of the arrivals of  .today. Man's greatest needs  .are the same in every age.

Pooley's hall was filled to its  capacity and the audience was an  appreciative one. The net proceeds will reach over seventy-  five dollars.  The, dramatic and humorous  sketches, vocal and instrumental  numbers supplemented with  choice refreshments and sub-  ' sequently an informal but. pleas-  . ant social dance combined to  give to the patrons of the evening an all too brief season of enjoyment. Two facts were scored  as a result of the enterprise���  that the members of the Ladies'  Guild are most capable -entertainers, and ' that Nicola can  boast of splendid literary and  stage talent.  Under the presidency of A., W.  Strickland   the    evening's   programme   was   well carried out.  Mrs. Tutill contributed two vocal  numbers  in  her usual pleasing  style,   and Miss  Agnes  Vair in  instrumental  numbers fully sustained her reputation  as a brilliant-pianist.     '  : .Miss    Carrington,   Rev.    Mr.  Thompson  and J.    F.  B.   Nash  offered the first sketch entitled  "Wanted, a young lady."   The  second   sketch,    "Cheerful   and  Musical," was well sustained by j  Mrs.   Barwick   and   Mrs.   Fred|  Howse.    The last farce "Cross  Purposes"  was  equally  as   enjoyable as the others- the parts  being taken by Mrs. Harold Matthews,    Miss   Carrington,   Rev.  Mr.   Thompson,.. T.-.Heslop,   A.  Carrington  and J.  F. B. Nash.  The various performers acquitted  themselves with splendid ability.  A pleasing number on the pro-  grarrime was a recitation by Mrs.  Barwick and the spontaneous  character of the applause told oi  the appreciation with which the  effort of this well known and  talented lady . was received.  Many were in attendance from  Merritt and at the solicitation of  Merritt friends the attraction  will be brought to Menzies' hall  next Tuesday evening, the proceeds to be given in aid of St.  John's church.
