A divisional base will be located either at* the city of Merritt  ���as���well���as���at���Midway���and-  Penticton.     Between  here   and  the coast the only divisional base  .will be'that at North  Bend.    It  is understood that many large  ��� contractors will tender for the  job,   and one of the firms had  representatives here   last week  looking over the situation up the  Coldwater preparatory to sending in figures.    These men were  E. N. Jones and E. A. Morrisey  of Spokane.  \. One of the principal objects of  the .company is to come into  direct contact with the coal at  . Middlesboro: and this has' been  'one of the most weijghty" arguments in favor of the; Coldwater  'river. route.

Friday, March 18, 1910  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Sensation at Fernie  With the arrest of Fred Var-  low, provincial constable, and  Fred Bolanger and Nat Babcock,  the former a railway brakeman,  the police at Fernie believe"that  they have the men who held up  and robbed the Woods Trites  officials at Coal Creek a few  weeks ago and got away with  $1200 cash and $2000 in cheques.  It is said that the constable aided  the men and used blank cartridges when he fired at them  during the flight. <- The case has  caused a great sensation at  Fernie.  ADDITIONAL COMMENTS  He's Right There  In the house at Ottawa last  week the consideration of the  railway estimates evoked a warm  discussion. R. L. Borden, leader  of the opposition, said that in  comparing the estimated cost of  the Grand Trunk Pacific and the  actual expenditure to date he  was convinced that there was  either the most ^extraordinary  and unprecedented incompetence  on the part of the engineers who  drew up the,estimates,or it was  one of the most gigantic , steals  ever perpetrated, in Canada.

THZ TELEPHONE  SERVICE  Nicola valley is sorely "in need  _ of an efficient telephone service.  To say that the present service  isv inadequate and- unsatisfactory  would be to employ  the  mildest  of  language.    It is -one "-of-the  lamest excuses for a  telephone  service that was ever thrust upon  a community.  The  delays  in   securing  con-  " nection are .sometimes  exasperating and  the  whole -' system  is  perforated with deficiencies of a  marked  character.'  This  is  by  --no means due, to  the parties in  charge^-of-the local lines. William  Munro as well as the  others engaged in  the  operation ' of  the  system    give   their  -very - best  ability to the performance of the  necessary utilities.  '  v We understand that'/,there -is  'money in': the  appropriations at  Ottawa -"for. Jtlie installation' of.' an  - exchange' at Merritt, but we have  ." no assurance that- this work will  - ,be undertaken'as "readily" as the  ---circumstances   demand   that   it  ���^ should, r- There is some measure  of reason in almost everything,  but the conditions that exist at  ' present are beyond  the compre-.  7   hension of any sane mind.  1  ".   What we require and what we  _*.  must have is a good and) adequ-  ate telephone, "service���one that  will keep us in contact not alone  with"' outside districts but will  give-us locally the  conveniences  - that  our  growing   business" in-  l^terests^makeJmperative__i;hat_we_  should have. The importance of  Nicola valley commercially-'and  industrially "confirms our contentions in-this regard, and it  devolves upon the authorities at  Ottawa to devote some little attention to-the heeds and requirements "of their constituents in  this particular district.. '  THAT DAILY SERVICE  r: ��� .It is regrettable that no defin-  "' ater action has  been   undertaken  /by the local boards  of trade . to-  *7; wirds\securing "a  daily, .service  on the Nicola branch of the C.P.  '- R.    It is true that' these  brgan-  ?l izations have communicated with  ,dffierent> authorities but that is  as far as they have gone.  ? As ;we pointed out \ before the  railway commission will hold a  sitting in Vancouver early next  month and than is the one agency  through which we can hope tQ  accomplish our end. ��� Send down  a good strong delegation with  lots of convincing data and lay  the whole matter before that  tribunal \ and we may get the  daily service.  The Canadian Pacific will suit  its own desires in this, important;  matter andf or that reason it is  almost useless to/send representatives before the officials of the  road or to communicate with  ^them though it would be well not  to neglect that course. v . ,.  The outside press is in sympathy, with us in our fight for a  daily service and any person who  has any knowledge of conditions  surrounding the present service  will lend support .to the movement. W e are in ' receipt of a  letter from J. L. G. -Abbott of  the law firm of Abbott & Hart-  McHarg, Vancouver and he has  promised to - assist- us in every  way that ~he possibly can. It is  men of this type;that can do' us  an effective service. Mr. Abbot's  father owns a large' ranch at Dot  and was long associated with' the  C. P. R. board so-'< that his influence might be' very>useful.  The��principal. thin&- ;is to get  ���busy right,away and/arrange for-  the hearing before the' Railway  Commission. ' -It ' is '��� necessary  that we do this immediately if  we desire to get the opportunity  that we so sorely need.  KETTLE   VALLEY  LINE-  'We are now assuredv that the  construction on the Kettle Valley  railway will start from this point  early in May. The contractors  will work from- 'three ' -points,  Midway, Penticton and -Merritt.  It is the purpose -of the company to rush, the completion of  this line as rapidly' as possible  andThe sooner itTis completed/the  better for the local distridt.  We publish a story in our news  columns this week gleaned from  an interview with one of the officials of, the railway .company,  and it-makes interesting1 reading  for the people of Nicola valley.  The line yvill come down the  Coldwater and connect with the  present C. P. R. line at Merritt  or Middlesboro. A divisional  base,will .be established at the  junctional point thus, adding^to  the advantages thatjwill accrue  from.th'e building of' ths line^in  this district. -���-"���-  \ Connection with the V.,.^V. &  E. or the Great Northern as it is  better known,  will  be secured,  and "with the completion of the  branch line of the Canadian  Northern {from - Kamloops >. to  Nicola the local district will be  equally as well served with railway facilities as any-district-in  the province.  Speaking of the Kettle Valley  line the following editorial taken  irom the columns of the Vernon  News will be interesting:  "Although public attention,  says ths News-Advertiser, has  been chiefly fixed on the Canadian Northern railway scheme,  the benefits that will accrue  from the agreement made with  the Kettle River Valley Railway  Company should not- be overlooked. By the construction of  the line from Midway-to _ Penticton,- an outlet to the south will  be opened for the traffic passing  over the Shuswap.andOkanagan  Railway. Still more important  is the arrangement included in  the agreement whereby- the  Kettle Riyer Company will build  a line from Penticton to Nicola,  making a junction there with  the*--'line from Spences - Bridge  and thereby giving a direct route  between Vancouver and r the  Boundary Creek district. The  time' now occupied in the journey  between these, points will practically > be cut in; half ��� and pur coast  cities.be put in a position to compete "oh equal terms with .cities  on the other side' of the ?boundary which hitherto have, had-a  large proportion of .the"' trade.of  that district' owing to their lines  of communication with it being  so much better than those possessed by our own. mercantile  community. - : - "    '.���-'"--���  in the western world arf laws  more rigidly enforced than in  the:Dominion of Canada. Therefore it will mean much when the  sale or gift of intoxicants is prohibited, as the bill provides, to  the weak, the dissolute, the improvident and the disorderly. ,In  all probability such a law would  eliminate much of the drunken-:  ness and the debauchery now  existent and save men and souls,  to the honor and glory of the  province.  if  The Spokesman Review pub:  lished at Spokane, has furnished  an . interesting -. tribute to the  liquor., act which the provincial  legislature proposes to enforce in  British Columbia. It is seldom  that legislation of this character  earns comment from" the press  -across^the~border-^and-^for-t-hat-  reason the words of the Spokesman Review will convey unusual  interest.    Here is what is  says:  ' 'Higher license, to minimize  the drink habit, will be given  fair test if the bill introduced in  parliament of -British Columbia  at Victoria becomes a law. Having the support of the government party, it stands a. good  chance of being written into the  statutes, although a violent storm  of opposition from breweries and  wholesale dealers in liquor, to  say nothing'of saloons and hotel  bars, is certain to break upon the  lawmakers once the disciples of  King Alcohol.see their business  jeopardized.     Perhaps nowhere  The death of John Houston,  journalist and politician, removes  one of the most conspicuous figures from the life of British Co-  lumbia. . Though his career was  somewhat checkered the late  John Houston had much that  would -commend.- it-self to historians and the" story of his life  tells, of. perseverance; and in-  domnitable pluck worthy of  emulation. He did a service;  wherever he lived and. his death  will be universally mourned.- :  -rO-  ROAD GANG BUILDS CRIB   y-  y Road "Superintendent Daniel  Sutherland, of Lytton, with his  foreman, John Duridas, reached  Merritt Wednesday .'night. -A  crew of-men with horses arrived -  the following day. ��� -''- : -' - '��� J ~  They- have undertaken-the con^  struction of cribwer k-: across  the 'r  Coldwater   ..just    north ,.of the-.,,_  bridge so as-toVrkeenv-"the   river .

In compliance with your request it affords me pleasure to  f urnise a brief sketch of Nicola  as seen thirty-five years ago, a  time that leads back almost to  the dawn of white settlement.  Early in the summer of 1875,  three , [missionaries Messrs.  Dunn, Clyde and the writer were  designated under the auspices of  the Church of Scotland to the  mission field in B. C. Prior to  =our arrival, there were but two  Presbyterian ministers in British  Columbia, the Rev. S. MacGregor  of Victoria, ancl R. Jameson of  New Westminster. ."' It . was  through the earnest pleadings of  the former that three additional  missionaries were sent to the  Pacific province, at that-*-time  little; known except for the gold  production..; in former years and  its magnificent rivers and mountains. Colonials knew it had a  place on.the map of B. N.'.-A.", and  that the . ownership of .SanJuan  was in dispute. -v Few in the  fatherland had -even that scant  knowledge of a colony which has  since attained prominence. .  At the, first meeting of Presbytery, wMch^as--4*eld in Victoria, it was decided that Na-  naimo should be, assigned to Mr.  Clyde, the .various settlements on  the Fraser "to Mr. Dunn, and  that Irslioiild be sent to the interior with Nicola as headquarters, as the Presbyterians of  tMt^istricttook^an���active-part  in the request, for ministerial  supply, ^Atrthat time the shortest route to B. C. was via the  Union Pacific and steamer from  California. Passage was taken  from'^Sari Francisco on the 111-  fated.S. S.. Pacific which afterwards foundered on an outward  voyage from Victoria. But few  of her large list, of passengers  and crew escaped a watery grave.  Various homes in B. C. were left  to mourn the loss of loved ones  from whom they had parted but  a short time before, little thinking they had said the last long  farewell. The Pacific seemed an  uncanny boat for the perils of  the   deep when compared;with  the Atlantic liners of the Cunard  and Allan companies.  After a somewhat rough passage the strait was entered, and  the remainder of the voyage to  Victoria was pleasant and full of  interest." The scenery was new,  varied and grand. On the one  side United States territory was  in evidence, on the other that of  Great Britain, both joint owners  of a mighty continent.  Victoria    felicitously    named,  beautifully situated, replete with  enchanting features, when seen  near at hand from the harbor  was disappointing..    A more imposing mercantile city was expected.    But once a shore and  having traversed its  length and  breadth and seen  its , surroundings so picturesque and wonderfully beautiful, the conclusion is  that nature in Victoria and its pre-  cincts had produced  a panorama  of-rare magnificence. What other  place can offer so, fair a situation  for a provincial,university ? ''"\  .   Once in yictoria the next point  of greatest interest to. me was  Nicola.    Comining   from scenes  of rapid transportation v it  y/as .  quite a surprise  to  learn that it  still  meant   four   or' five   days  journey, to reach Nicola..   Transportation was by steamer to New  Westminster, thence to Yale.by  the river boat.    The trip up the-  river . afforded ..much   pleasure.  The   scenery -was   greatly .admired.    From .Yale to Spences  Bridge the journey was by the.  famous B._ X._    Who would h^ve  missed!  that journey by stage?  Everything   was" in   first  class,  order, coach and, horses of the  best and to old timers the mention of S.   Tingley's name is assurance that one of the most expert and careful  drivers on the  T-L  .  -Air���  Paeific_coasst~was���in���charger-  is something to glide along today on the C. P. R. Time is<  saved and comfort enjoyed, but  the trip from' Yale to Spences  Bridge by rail does not afford1  anything like the delight which,  the journey by stage.did...  From Spences Bridge Nicola,  was reached. The wagon road was  then iff course of construction,,  about eighteen miles being built.  At Spences Bridge there was.  an Indian with two saddle horses,  kindly provided by Mr. Clapperton and the: late John Gilmore to  convey Rev. S. MacGregor and  myself, into Nicola. As we faced  Nicolaward and;proceeded, some  distance along the road I began.  ������ v ' i  Friday, March 18, 1910  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  to wonder when, the scene would  - change, and some portion of. .the  valley whose, praises had been  '   sung would be seen.     There was  : rugged  beauty on the hillsides  and  mountain  tops.    But there  was also a marked sameness, and  however much the fascination of  the strange scenery,  the idea of  desolateness would  obtrude  and  mar the picture.     Ignorant of  the virtue   of bunchgrass, what  else was there to indicate substance   for   man   or beast.    My  companion was of a highly poetic  temperament and   would break  forth in  raptures  over natural  features that   could   not excite  much enthusiasm   in   a prosaic,  mind, especially as you had riot  traveled -- about*- 6000. miles   to  lavish   admiration   on   nature's  unfinished work.,    However, assurance was given that a day's  journey into Nicola would? disclose a region fair^to look  upon,  fertile and capable of sustaining  large herds.  As neither of us ;had mounted  a horse for years, we decided to  remain-for the., night with John  Duval' who kindly showed,us  ��� such hospitality as-his'circumstances, permitted. .Mr.. Duval  did not wish to accept payment  and, only did so at our solicitation.  Mr. Manning now lives on the  ^ ranch which; Duval r owned "in  years gone by; " If my recollectT  ion of it.in. former.yiarsjis cor-  Trect the Nicola river must have  washed away a considerable por-  tion of ^the land. ��� From : Duval's  place there was but,a trail.. The  place now known as-the 22 was  occupied by a-Mr; ; Smith who  after a year' or tworembved to  some'other locality. ,    'V/"  L The next resident was, Mr.,  Byron Earnshaw, a genial and  intelligent settler -whcT stillT lives  in'Nicola at Minnie Lake.
