There will be a good drawing  card in the horse races and the  committee has arranged a programme that provides variety as  well as quality. In the field  sports there will be keen competition and many outside entries  sure assured.  The beautiful cup donated by  W.

The Kettle y alley is  now subsidized at $11,400 per  mile for a distance of 150 miles  from Midway to Merritt.  , It is not-unlikely,,in view of. ref  'cent -developments that, after  leaving Merritt that the new line  will go up the Coldwater-and"on  across the Hope mountains. /Advices from Ottawa suggest this  change in the route. This would  mean a more direct route to the  coast from Nicola valley and the  consequent-reduction in -freight  and transportation;' tariffs/ - :   o r-  FOREST FIRES RAGED  A terrible forest fire devasting  as it did a district sixty miles  square-raged through the -Mam-  met lake country for three days  and was finally -subdued by the  heavy "rains of Monday -night..

F00TBALLISTS GET BUSY  Several of the football enthusiasts of Merritt had a conference with officials of the Merritt Athletic association Tuesday  night and the result is that immediate steps have been taken  to organize a football team for  competition in the tournament  will be held on May 24 and  25. A good strong eleven can be  secured and nightly practices  will be held on the athletic  grounds so as to ensure fitness  and to perfect team work. Middlesboro has already^organized a  team and there will be at least  two teams to compete for the  trophies in connection with the  big celebration. Last Saturday's  game between Merritt and Middlesboro was called off.  That team of Bob Brown's is  making a splendid showing in the  race, for the pennant in the  Northwestern league and baseball fans of Vancouver have  every reason to back the team as  a winner. Tacoma is showing up  well these days and it is some  time since the Tigers had the,  distinguished honor of leading  the league.'  Vancouver ball team is playing  a close second to Tacoma in the  race for the pennant in the Northwestern league. Last week they  took the series from Seattle the  last two games of which were  transferred to the Sound city because of the death of King  Edward.  . Tom Sharkey announces that  he will challenge the winner of  the Johnston-Jeff ries fight. James  Corbett leaves New York on  Sunday and will go to assist  Jeffries in his training camp.  The   quarrell     between     the  Rod Standen, the Vancouver  boy, will meet Billy Lauder in  a-fifteen round mill.  Calgary will have to play the  Celtics at Vancouver to determine just who is who in the fight  for the People's Shield in the  soccer series.  Jeffries is showing his old time  form in the ring. He had a  couple of mills with Billy Papke  and Joe Choynski and showed  lots of speed in the ring.  The tennis courts at Nicola  will likely be opened tomorrow,  the finishing touches . having  been applied during the week.

Charlton who left Wednesday  morning for the coast where he  will reside. He will be associated with his brother, William  Charlton, and he will be on the  road a great part of the time  going as far east as Calgary.  For nearly three years Mr.  Charlton has been a member of  the staff of A. E. Howse & Co. at  Nicola and a most valued employee he was���ever courteous  and willing in his treatment of  the public and careful and efficient in the discharge of his duty.  In baseball and hockey he has  ever held a conspicuous place,  one of the fastest hockey players  in the upper country and a brilliant pitcher in baseball. His  removal will mean a serious loss.  That he will encounter the fullest measure of success and that  he will be blessed with every  happiness is the fondest wish of  his friends through this district,  friends who are legion and who  will   ever  be  interested  in his  welfare.  , o   Field Sports  (Continued from page one)  second day.

The unfortunate  fellow was riding on a loaded  car coming out of No. 1 mine  when he was thrown from the  car beneath the wheels. The  car passed oyer his leg lacerating' it badly. Dr. Tutill was  called and after daessing the  wound accompanied Pollock to  Spences Bridge^ this morning  whence he will be sent on to one  of the. Vancouver hospitals. It  is thought that the leg will have  to be amputated. James Pollock  brother of the injured man went  down to Vancouver with him.

His injuries  for a time looked serious but  after receiving treatment from  Dr. Tutill was allowed to continue his journey to the coast.  Ed.

Dam Venture by Sethby  Denmark, etc.  Memento foar years old is a beautiful  bay horse W't-h black points, a color  which is now much sought after by  Hackney breeders. His father, the  famous Garton Duke of Connaught is  admittedly one of the greatest sires of  this breed in the British Isles, and the  younger generation of this strain promise to be equally successful. He is  sound in every respect and horsemen  will note his fine quality combined with  strength and good conformation with a  turn of speed quite unusual in the  Hackney. At the recent Vancouver  Horse Show he was awarded the Reserve Championship and regarded as  the right stamp of horse to make a  marked improvement in the lighter  horses of the country. Being his first  season the ' terms have been made as  low as possible considering the great  expense of his importation.  TERMS  $20 a mare, payabie 1st September,  after which 10 per cent, will be charged  for collection. $30 to insure a foal,  payable 1st February. $30 Registered  mares, payable 1st Sepuember.

DILLINGHAM    COMPANY  Con i  CHAPTER VI.-  MONTH had passed since the  ..memorable meeting- of the di  rectors of the Southern ami  Transcontinental . railroad, in  New York, and during- that time neither. John Burkett Ryder nor Judge  Rossmore "had been idle. The. former  had'immediately set in motion the machinery he controlled in the legislature?  ���at Washington, .while the judge neglected no step to vindicate himself before the public.  Ryder for reasons of his own ���probably  because he  wished to  make the  blow "the   more  crushing  when  it did  fall���had   insisted  on  the   proceedings  at the board meeting being kept a profound   secret, and  some time elapsed  before the newspapers got-wind of the  coming congressional inquiry.    No one  had   believed the stories  about Judge  Bossmore, but now that a quasi official  seal had been set on the current gossip there was a howl of virtuous indignation  from  the journalistic  muck  rakers.    What was the country coming.  to? ]they cried in double leaded  type.  After the1 embezzling by life insurance  officers, the rascality of the railroads,  the looting of city treasuries, the greed  of the trusts, the grafting .of, the legis-.  , lators,   had  arisen   a   new   and   more  ! serious  scandal, the corruption of the  j judiciary.     The   last   bulwark   of  the  , nation   had   fallen.     The   country   lay  j helpless   at   the   mercy   of .legalized  sandbaggers.     Even   the judges   were  no longer to be trusted.    The most re-  soected one among them all had  \��p��mi  unable to resist the tempter. The supreme court, the living voice. of the  constitution, was honeycombed with  graft. Public life was 'rotten to the  -core!  Neither the newspapers nor the public stopped to ascertain the- truth or  the falsity of the charges against Judge  Uossmore. It; was sufficient that the  bribery, story furnished the daily sensation which newspaper editors and  newspaper readers must. have. The.  world is ever more prompt to believe  ill rather, than good of a maii, and' no  onej;:except in Rossmore's immediate'  circle of friends, entertained the slightest doubt of'his g&fit.. It was common  knowledge that'^rhe/','big interests"!  -were behind the proceedings, and that  ��  rjudge Rossmore was.a scapegoat, sacrificed by the system- because he' had  been, blocking their, game." If Ross-  -inofe had really accepted the bribe,  and.few now believed him spotless, he  deserved all that- was coming to him.  Senator. Roberts was., very active in  Washington preparing the case against  Judge Rossmore. The latter being of  Ihe party which was in the minority,  and "the interests" controlling a majority in the house, it was a foregone  conclusion that the inquiry would be  against him, and that a demand would  at once be made upon the senate for  his impeachment.  Almost prostrated by the misfortune  which had so suddenly and unexpectedly come upon him, Judge Rossmore  was like a man; demented. His reason  seemed to be tottering, he spoke and  acted like a man in a dream. Naturally he was entirely incapacitated for  work, and he had applied to.Washington to be temporarily relieved from his  -judicial    duties.      He    was    instantly  granted a  leave of absence and went  at once to his  home in  Madison avenue, where, he shut himself up" in his  library,  sitting  for  hours at  his  desk  wrestling   with   documents   and   legal  tomes in a  pathetic endeavor to  find  some way out, trying to ~elude thi^ aet  .in which unseen hands had entangled  him.  What an eud to' his career!    To* have  . struggled aud achieved for-half a century,   to   have   built   up   a   reputation  year by year, as a man builds a house  brick  by  brick,  ouly to see the  whole  -crumble to his-feet like dust!    To have  gained  the  respect, of the country,  to  have made a name as the most incor  riiptible of public servants, and now to  be branded as a common bribe taker!  Could he be dreaming?    It was too incredible!     What  would   his   daughter  say���his Shirley?    Ah, the thought of  the expression of incredulity and wonder on  her face when she  heard -the  news cut him to the heart like a knife  thrust.    Yet,  he mused,, her very  unwillingness to believe it should really  be his consolation.    Ah, his wife and  his child���they knew,  he had been innocent of wrongdoing.    The very idea  was ridiculous.    At most he had been  careless.     Yet   be   was   certainly   to  blame.    . He ought. to   have  seen   tho.  trap   so   carefully   prepared   and   into  which he had walked as if blindfolded.  That extra $50,000 worth * of stock, oiT  which he had never received a cent interest, had been the decoy in a carefully thought.out plot..   They,, the plotters; well knew how ignorant he was  of'financial matters, and he had been  an .easy   victim.    Who  would  believe  his. story that the stock had been sent  to him with a plausibly worded letter  to the effect that it represented a bonus  on his. own investment?   Now he came  to think of it, calmly and reasonably,  he would not believe it himself.    As  asfual,- he had mislaid or destroyed the  secretary's letter, and there was only  his word against the company's books  to substantiate what would appear a  most improbable if not impossible occurrence.  It was his conviction of his own good  faith that made his present dilemma  it 11 the more cruel. Had he really been  a graf,ter, had he really taken the  stock, as a bribe; he would not care so  much,, for then  he. would have -fore  seen and?-discounted the chances of exposure/. Yes, there was no doubt possible. He was the victim of a con-  . spiracy; there was an organized plot  to ruin h"im, to get him out of the way.  The "interests" feared him, resented  his judicial . decisions, and they had  halted at, nothing to accomplish their  purpose. * How could he fight them  back, what could he do to protect himself? He had no proofs of a conspiracy; his' enemies worked in the  dark; there was no way in which he  could reach them or know who they  -were.   -:   ������"������������ ./....'  ' He thought of John Burkett Ryder.  Ah, he; -remembered now! Ryder was  the man' who had recommended the  investment in Alaskan stock. Of,>  course. Why did he.not think of it before? He recollected, that at the time  he had been puzzled at receiving so  much stbek, and he had mentioned it  to Ryder,' adding that the secretary had  told hiuf it was customary. Oh. why  had he not kent the secretary's letter"/  :;m- i>yder,.\vouiii  certainly  remein ner  it.    He probriufj.  still  had his two letters in which he.- spoke of. making the  investment.    If those letters could be  produced at the congressional  inquiry  they would clear him at once, so, losing  no time and filled  with renewed  hope,  he wrote to the Colossus a strong, manly letter,"which would have melted an  iceberg, urging Mr. Ryder to come forward   now   at  this   critical   time  and  clear him  of this abominable charge,  or  in   any  case  to  kindly  return  the  two letters  he must have in  his  possession, as they would go far to help  him at the trial.    Three days  passed  and   no   reply   from   Ryder.     On   the  fourth  came a   polite  but   frigid   note  from   Mr.   Ryder's   private   secretary.  Mr.   Ryder  had   received  Judge   Rossmore's  letter and  in   reply   begged   to  state that he had a vague recollection  of  some  conversation   with  the judge  in   regard- to   investments,  but  he did  not think !_,e had advised the purchase  of any  particular  stock,  as  that was  something he never  did on  principle,  eyen with his  most  intimate  friends:  He had no wish to be held accountable  In case of loss, etc.    As to the letter  .���vhich  Judge Rossmore  mentioned   as  aaving written to Mr. Ryder in regard  to haying received more stock than lie  had bought, of that Mr. Ryder had no  recollection    whatever.      Judge    Rossmore was probably mistaken as to the  identity of his correspondent.    He regretted he could not be of more service  to Judge Rossmore  and remained  his  very obedient servant.  . It was very evident thiat no help was  to be looked for in that quarter.   There  was even decided, hostility  in  Ryder's  reply.    Could it be true that the financier  was  really   behind   these  attacks  upon his character? Was itpossibh* thai  one man. merely to make more money,  would deliberately ruin, his fellow man  whose hand he had grasped  in friendship?    He  had been   unwilling to  be  lieve itwhen his friend ex-Judge Stoti  had "pointed to Ryder as the author o:  all .his   misfortunes,   but  this   unsympathetic letter, with its falsehoods, its  lies,  plainly   written  all over  its  face  was   proof   enough.     Yes,   there   wa  now no doubt possible.    John  Burket'  Ryder  was   his  enemy, aud   what   a:,  enemy!    Many a man  had committed  suicide, when, he had  incurred the en  inity of the Colossus.   Judge Rossmore  completely    discouraged,    bowed     his  liead to the inevitable, but he sent for  his old friend ex-.Judge Stott.  :': They   were   lifelong friends,   having  become acquainted" nearly thirty year?,  ago   at   the   law   school,   at   the   time  when  both  were young men .about to  enter;on a  public career..

He was still a  young man, not yet fifty, and full of  vigor and fight. He had a blunt manner, but his heart was in the; right  place, and he had a record as clean as  his close shaven face. He was a hard  worker, a brilliant speaker and one of  the cleverest cross examiners at the  bar. This was the man to whom Judge  Rossmore naturally turned for legal  assistance.  Stott was out west when he first  'heard of the proceedings against his  old friend/and this indignity put upon  the only really honest man in public  life whom he knew,-so incensed him  that he ��� was already hurrying back to  his  aid  when  the  summons   reached  Meantime a fresh and more serious  calamity had overwhelmed Judge  Rossmore. Everything seemed to combine to break the spirit of this man  who had dared defy the power of organized capital. Hardly had the news  of the congressional inquiry been  made public, than the financial world  was startled by an extraordinary  slump in Wall street. There was nothing iii the news of the day to justify  a decline, but prices fell and fell. The  bears had it all their own way. the big  interests hammered stocks al! along  the line, "coppers" especially being the  object of attack. The market.closed  feverishly, and the next day the same  tactics were pursued. From the opening, on selling orders coming from no  one knew where, prices fell to nothing,  a stampede followed, and before long  it became a panic.  Pandemonium reigned on the floor of  the Stock Exchange.    White faced disheveled brokers shouted and struggled  like men possessed to execute, the orders   of   their   .clients.     Big   financial  houses which stood to lose millions on  a  falling  market   rallied  and   by   rush  orders to  buy  attempte'd  to stem   the  tide,  but all  to no purpose.    One firm  after another went by  the board,  unable to weather the tempest, until just  before   closing   time   the   stock   ticker  announced   the   failure   of   the   Great  Northwestern   Mining   company.     The  drive  in  the  market had  been principally   directed   against   its   securities,  and after vainly endeavoring to check  the bear raid it had been compelled to  declare itself bankrupt.    It  was heavily  involved,  assets  nil,   stock   almost  worthless.     It   was  probable" that  the  creditors would not see' 10-cents on the  dollar.     Thousands   were   ruined,   and  Judge Rossmore among them.    All the  savings of a  lifetime���nearly $55,000-  were gone.    He was practically penniless at a time when he heeded iribney  most.     He   still   owned   his   house   in  Madison avenue, but that would have  to go to settle with his creditors.    By  the  time   everything   was   paid   there  would only, remain enough for a  modest competence.    As to his salary, of  course he could not touch that so long  as  this   accusation   was. hanging over  his head, and if he were impeached it  would ; stop   altogether.     The   salary,  therefore,   was  not to  be counted  on.  They must manage as best they could  and live more cheaply, taking a small  house  somewhere   in  the  outskirts  of  the city,   where  he  could  prepare  his  case quietly   without attracting attention.  Stott thought this was the best thing  they could do, and he volunteered to  relieve his friend by taking on his own  hands all the arrangements of the sale  of the house and furniture, which offer the judge accepted only too gladly.  Meantime Mrs. Rossmore went to  Long Island to see what could be had,  and she found at the little village of  Massapequa just what they were looking for���a commodious, neatly furnished two story cottage at a modest rent-  air���Of���eotirse^rit���was^nothing���like���  what   they ��� had   been   accustomed   to.  but it was clea>? and comfortable, and.  as Mrs. Rossmore said, rather tactlessly, beggars cannot be choosers. Perhaps it would not be for long. Instant  possession was to be had, so a deposit  was paid on the spot, and a few days  later the Rossmores left their mansion  on Madison avenue and took up their  residence in Massapequa, where their  advent created quite a fluster in local  social circles.

THE TELEGRAPH SERVICE  9  There is something radically  wrong with the C. P. R. telegraph service. From time to  time we have entered strenuous  protests against the seaious delay in transmission of ^messages  and this protest nas only been in  common with similar protests  emanating from the board of  trade and other sources.  Messages filed in Vancouver  early in the morning have never  reached Merritt or Nicola until  late into the afternoon and oftentimes not until the following day.  As one well known merchant  remarked, and truthfully too, ' 'it  is almost as satisfactory to write  because the letter often reaches  its . destination before a telegram."1  In^an effort to get at the base  of the trouble, investigations  have been conducted on a private  part, aiid the invariable result is  that the responsibility is placed  with the office atSpences Bridge.  There the messages are relayed  and the operators are so burdened  with work that it is often hours  before they can send the messages on into Merritt or Nicola.  The News operates an expensive press service and pays a  good, round sum for the maintenance of a correspondent at Van-  vcouver, for in this way we secure  the benefit. of the associated  press service. Press matter is  always late in reaching us, however, and we have known dif-  ^if^ent^instances^wheife^itp-hgio  been filed in Vancouver early on  Friday jmorning and it did not  reach us until late in the afternoon. On one or two occasions  it was filed Thursday night and  we did not get it before three  btelock Friday afternoon. This  delay is serious because not only  does it retard the publication of  the paper but it means that we  t cannot use all the press matter  because of the late hour at which  it is received. Therein lies a loss  because we are paying formatter that we are not in a position  to use as a result of the unsatisfactory I telegraph' service.  But we have another and more  serious, protest to offer; and one  that demands searching investigation on the part of the telegraph department of the C. P. R.  Press messages serit to The News  are as private as.- an ordinary  message to a private party and  we pay our good money for them.  But on different occasions the  purport of these messages became public property before they  were delivered to us.  Only last week on the occasion  of the death of our late lamented  King we Were provided with  complete service. No other parties in the valley were informed  by wire of the death of the king,  but the information was given to  the public even before it was  given to us. The result was that  our service lost its effectiveness.  Our esteemed contemporary, a  paper that never subscribes to a  telegraph or press service, was  enabled to publish the story of  the King's death at the expense  of our service. The Herald is  averse to paying for a press service by wire but still they were  given the advantage of a service  for which we have to pay pretty  dearly. It might also be mentioned that a part of these messages were filed at Vancouver  early in the morning but it was  well into the afternoon before  they reached us. c  This leakage should be checked at once. It-, is a serious matter and one that demands. immediate investigation. It is unfair to . The News and unfair to  our readers that we should thus  be robbed of the privileges for  which we are held financially responsible. If the C. P. R. proposes to make public the text of  all press messages addressed to  The News then it devolves upon  the C. P. R. to undertake the  expense of this service, but if on  the other'hand The News must  continue to pay :for the service  then it is up to the C. P. R. to  see to it that our messages are  held in privacy and thus retain  to us and to our readers the value  that*accrues from: a modern and  complete press service.

B.C. this 7th day of  January, A.D. 1910.  Edward VII is no more and George V rules in his stead.  Like a .bolt from a clear blue sky came the sad intelligence that our beloved sovereign had succumbed to an acute  attack of bronchitis. The world was not aware of his serious illness and it was not until an official bulletin was issued  a short time previous to the end that the critical state of  His Majesty was really known.  King Edward had not been in robust health for some  time and it was only a few weeks ago that he was stricken  with an attack ol bronchitis at Biarritz though no anxiety  was attached to his illness. Some of his friends are inclined  to the theory that the acute political crises was in a measure  responsible for his death and it may be that thisis true in a  sense. Coming as it does at one of the most crucial stages  of England's history, King Edward's death is an irreparable  . loss. Well may we say that he has ever been a strong  regulative force in the direction of the constitutional system  of the~Tia*tioir and the value of-his extreme wisdom and  judgment in matters political has been almost inestimable.  "Edward the Peacemaker" was one of the epithets  familiar with the name of the late sovereign and no higher  tribute could be paid to his worth than is found in the silent  testimony of the kindred love and respect with, which he was  regarded throughout the length and breadth of Europe and  the entire universe. ' .   "  Kaiser" William is possibly one of the-most self-reliant,  monarchs known to modern history and still withal this  strudy ruler would bow to the sane, reasonable, judicious  and diplomatic words of England's late monarch!.' The  younger crown heads of Europe always had in him a close  friend and advisor and it is no idle,.boast to say that no man  has eyer wielded a broader or better influence for good, than  did King Edward VII. With" a wise hand he wafted the  wand of ^arbitration with the result that, many international  disputes have -found a-.peaceful settlement with him and  universal peace has been the result of his unceasing effort. *  He was ever an exponent of peace and there is not a nation  in the world but has bowed with respect and: reverence to  his influence and power.  England has lost her greatest and noblest king, a statesman, a diplomat. Strong in character, kindly in disposition,  affable in nature he won his way to the hearts of his people  and as a monarch and as a man he was beloved and honored  in all circles. One of his most notable faculties was a keen  executive power, and in the direction of the affairs of state  he has employed a wonderful ability replete with tactfulness  and justice. His duty was ever nearest his heart, and;nothing furnishes a more striking evidence of this thai?the incident just prior to his death when he raised froni :tnfe death  bed to direct certain affairs of state that were brought to his  attention. 'T know'the end is near, but I think I have done  my duty.'- His dying words are typical of the man Jor he  met the inevitable with the same, resignation and firmness  that had characterised his service in life. #  England is laboring in the midst of the most serious  political crisis in its history, and it is deplorable that King  -Edward shouldbetakenTfiiray-atthis ^crucial-moment JorJhe���_  of all men would haye had the largest influence in solving  the national problems that have hovered as clouds over the  head of thenation for Weeks. ; .  King Edward entered into the. lives of his people. He  romped with the hunters. He strode through the race paddocks with the horsemen. He communed with the farmer.  He was ever in touch with the business life���in brief there  was no department of social, commercial or industrial activity that did not know his kindly presence or the influence  of his directing hand.  The new King, George V, is very much of the same  type as his father. He enters upon the kingly office at the  age of forty-five years and in the prosecution of his royal  duties he could not do better than follow the~ pattern that  has been woven by his worthy sir. It is a tremendous task  to take up the regal duties at this critical moment, but the  experience of the past can and must serve as a wonderful  aid. That he will have/a long and glorious reign is the fond  hope of his millions of subjects, and towards this end we join  with the countless throngs in voicing that old but ever sweet ,|  refrain, "God save our gracious King, long live our noble.  King, God Save the King."  *,-  ��� �����W��W��IV����l^<_fe^,r>0ro't^?T5K^WSW WW."
