The Baseball, Football, Horse  ���s - ^'  Races and Field Sports  Were  Strong Cards  The "Victoria day celebration  for 1910 has been written on the  pages of History and the officers  of.the Merritt Athletic association have every reason to  believe that they have scored an unprecedented success.    It is true/that the at-  . .tendance  for the two days.  ~Xay not'* hay e been as large  as that of last year, but financially, and otherwise the  event was the superior of its  predecessor.  The committees have not  yet completed their " work  but it'is understood that  over and above all expenses  the association will have between three and four^hun-  dred dollars to devote to the  fund   for   completing    the  , clubhouse. The dance committee   alone   cleared    up  * nearly' $125 above expenses.  . while     the      re-  accommodation was provided in  all departments.    ^  The importation. of outside  horses added a lustre to the horse  racing events and there was  some real good sport: Middlesboro won the final in-the football  tourney- and incidentally carried  away the silver, cup  and  $25  in  Railroad Plans Purchase of Mines  Will Operate on ah Elaborate Scale  NEW   TRAIN   SCHEDULE  Local "JYill   Arrive  Same  Time  But Depart Later,    ,  Under the new schedule that  goes into effect on the mainline  of the C.P.R. on June 5th the  Nicola  branch  train .will  leave  MERRITT LOOKING WEST  freshment committee was over  $200 to the good.  The weather man smiled his  prettiest. A little rain fell on  ^he morning of_the~first~day but  It was just: enough, to lay the  dust. A strong wind prevailed  at times but occasioned no discomfort.  The field sports, the ball game,  the horse races arid the football  matches were successful in  arousing the fullest measure of  interest arid enthusiasm. From  Tulameen and Princeton on the  south east to kamloops and  mainline points including Ashcroft and Spences Bridge the  people came while every point  throughout the length and  fereadthof the valley was ,well  .represented. The hotels had a  time of it but tne best of  prize money. The honors in the  sports were pretty well distributed.  JThe committees - all worked  hardandfully*deservedthe"tsu<_s  cess that fell .to their lot. In  every department of the big celebration there was the same enthusiasm and the two days went  with a swing that was gladdening to the hearts of the. men in  whose hands rested the destiny  of the enterprise. Taken altor  gether the celebration of 19i6  will take a lot of bleating and the  completion of the. club house is  noto practically assured.

Jlr.- ���'  ji ���  If ���  IK"- .  15  ,  . i  Ii'  The Victoria  Day Celebration  (Continued from page  one)  R. P. , Baker furnished, seven  .innings of good snappy ball in  the presence of a large and enthusiastic audience. Richardson's team won by a score of 8 to  6 but not until they had fought  every inch of the ground. A  heavy down pour of rain in the  latter part of the fourth did not  deter the game which was bright  and gingery from first to last.  Both teams showed good form  and there were a number of good  fielding plays on both sides. The  game evidenced one thing, that  Nicola valley can produce a winning ball team this year, lots of  excellent material being available. A. S. Bennett handled the  indicator. The winning team  comprised W. H. Richardson, E.  King, Geo. Thorn, H. Frame, E.  Jones, E. Johns, S. N. Dancey,  C. Mathews and Gibbs and immediately after the game they  were awarded the silver cup and  the $25 cash prize. Baker's team  was made up of Gemmill, - Geo.  Bonna, Westcott, Collins, Geo.  Revelle, S. L. Smith, Geo. Bennett, E. GessingandR. P.-Baker.  The Horse Races  It was easily apparent that the  programme-of horse races was  the strongest, card hung up by  the Merritt Athletic Association.  Not alone was there an increased  attendance on Wednesday afternoon but the crowd was more  representative and there seemed  to be a healthier spirit of enthusiasm.  A number of outside horses  had been entered in the different  events thus adding materially !tb  the interest. Some of the best  track horses of the upper country  were on the field and in one or  two of the races there was some  pretty keen sport. Walter Hom-  . fray of Kamloops came over with  Fancy Free and Bessie Trimble,  Henry Smith of Kamloops,   had   Sjgne_e,_Pres_tige_andjArmele__and_  there were also a number of Nic-  . ola and Similkameen horses. Jack  Budd of   Princeton,    had   two  horses but scratched them.  The bright spectacular feature  of the day was the quarter mile  repeat.    There   were three en-  . tries, Fancy Free, Armele and  Weasle the last named owned by  Thos. Smitherin, of Keremeos.  Fancy Free appeared to be the  favorite but the little roan was  not feeling just right having a  touch of the distemper.  Armele proved.to be a fleet  footed mare recently brought  from California and she took two  ' put'of.the three heats in good  " style:     The first try   went   to  Fancy Free, Scotty up,  Weasle  with Ed. Riley up, running second, and Armele with Th'ad Williams up third.  The second heat went to Armele. with Fancy Free second and  Weasle third. . Just before the  third heat Weasle broke and ran  away down the roa'd the heat  being finished by the other two  horses. It was a battle royal  and when Armele crossed under  the wire in the lead it was only  by a neck Fancy Free pressing  her hard. Considerable money  changed hands on the result of  this race.  The Klootchmen's race attracted the usual interest though  there were but two entries.  Emile was first with Izeta second.  The ladies' race was one of  the best bills of the afternoon,  largely because of the fact that  the riders were local ladies. The  big crowd seemed to take a li vlier  interest in the event and the test  was watched, with great enthusiasm. Miss Helen Hyland mounted on Mrs. Pooley's "Queenie"  romped home a winner leading  all the way for the half mile.  Miss Bertha Curnew riding an  Indian pony was a close second  and Mrs. H. E. Forsyth claimed  third place.  The half mile dash promised to  be a good event had it not been  that in the second and third heats  Prestige, one 'of Henry Smith's  horses, broke from the track and  refused to stay in the race. Prestige is one of the fastest little  stallions in the upper country  and th'e big audience was anxious  to see him perform. He took  the first heat from Beautiful and  ?Best owned by Nelson Welsh and  R.Av Smith but after that refus--  ed to stay on the track and the  remaining two heats went to the  Merritt stallion. The half mile  dash was withdrawn because  there was not sufficient entries.  The Indian race was won by  Jim^withGrey^Eagiesecond and-  Diamond third. The pony race  was fairly exciting, there were  five entries and the race was well  contested. Bessie Trimble, owned by Walter Homfray, carried  off the money and second place  went to Mrs. Pooley's "Fairy"  with Ed. Riley up.  The closing.event1 of the. afternoon was the cowboy race, and  to one who had not seen a race  of this character there was an  abundance of genuine excitement  The ponies had to round stakes  and the purse going to the , rider  who gave the best performance,  Jack Thynne's. black' horse _ carried off the" money" arid "William  Charters ran second.

"Here they are! Here they are!'*
•cried Mrs. Rossmore. "Come, Eudoxia!" she called to the servant, while
sue herself hurried down to the gate.
The. judge, fully as agitated as herself, only showing his emotion in a
different way, remained on the porch,
jpale aud anxious.
The cab stopped at the curb, and
Stott  alighted,   first  helping out   Mrs.
, "Father, father, what have they done to
jyou ? "
Blake. Mrs. Kossrnore's astonishment
©d seeing her sister was almost corn-
"Milly!" she exclaimed.
They embraced first and explained
afterward. Then Shirley got out and
. was in her mother's arms.
"Where's father?" was Shirley's first
"There—he's coming!"
The judge, unable to restrain his impatience longer, ran down from the
porch toward the gate. Shirley, with
a cry of mingled grief and joy, precipitated herself on his breast.
"Father, father," she cried between
\_her  sobs,   "what  have   they  done   to
There, there, my child! Everything
•trill be well—everything will be_w_ell!!'l
Her bead lay, on his shoulder, and he
stroked her hair with his hand, unable
to speak from pent up emotion.
Mrs. Rossmore could not recover
from her stupefaction on seeing her
sister. Mrs. Blake explained that she'
bad come chiefly for the benefit of the
Toyage and announced her intention of
returning on the same steamer.
•"So, you see, I shall bother you only
a few days," she said.
"You'll stay just as long as you
■wish," rejoined Mrs. Rossmore. *Hap-
jrfly we have just one bedroom left."
Vhea, turning to Eudoxia, who was
-wrestling with the baggage, which
formed a miniature Matterhorn on the
sidewalk, she gave instructions:
-•"""Eudoxia,' you'll take this~ lady's baggage ;to the small bedroom adjoining'
Miss Shirley's.. Shells: going to stop
witb us for & few days."
Taken jcoiispletely. aback, at the newa,
•f this new addition, Eudoxia looked* >
At filet defiance. - She seemed on' the*.
point or uauumg in uer resignation
there and then. But evidently she
thought better of it, for, taking a cue
from Mrs. Itossmore, she asked in tho
sarcastic manner of her mistress:
"Four is it now, m'm? I suppose tho
constitootion. of the United States allows a family to be as big as one likes
to make it. It's hard on us girls, but
if. it's the law, it's all right, m'm. The:
more the merrier!" With which broadside she hung the bags all over herself
and staggered off to the house.
Stott explained that the larger pieced"
and the trunks would come later by ex-1
press. Mrs. Rossmore took him aside'
while Mrs. Blake joined Shirley arid1
the judge.
"Did you  tell  Shirley?"  asked Mrs.
Rossmore.   "How did she take it?"
"She   knows   everything,"   answered i
Stott, "and takes it very sensibly.   We
shall find her of great moral assistance*
in our coming fight in the senate," he
added confidently.
Realizing that the judge would like
to be left alone with Shirley,- Mrs..
Rossmore invited Mrs. Blake to go upstairs and see the room she would
have, while Stott said he would be
glad of a washup. When they had
gone Shirley sidled up to her father In
her old familiar way.
,     "I've just been longing to see jom,
father," she sfcid. She turned to get
a good look at him, and, noticing the
lines of care which had deepened-during her absence, she cried: "Why. how
you've changed!. I can scarcely believe it's you. Say something. Let
me hear the sound of your voice, father."
j    The judge tried to smile.
"Why, my dear girl, I"—
Shirley threw her arms round his
neck. ,'       -
"Ah, yes, now I know it's you," she
"Of course it is, Shirley, my dear
girl. Of course it is."" Who else would
it be?"
"Yes, but. it isn't the same," insisted
Shirley. "There is no ring to your
voice. It. sounds hollow and empty,
like an echo. And this place," she added dolefully, "this awful place"—
She glanced around at the cracked
ceilings, the cheaply, papered walls, the
shabby furniture, and her heart sank
as she realized the extent of their misfortune. She had come back prepared
for the worst, to help win the fight for
her father's honor, but to have to
struggle against sordid poverty as well,
to endure that humiliation in addition
to disgrace—ah, that was. something
she had not anticipated! She changed
color, and her voice faltered. Her father had been closely watching for
just such signs, and he read her
"It's the best we can afford, Shirley,"
he said quietly. "The blow has been
complete. I will tell, you everything.
You shall judge for yourself. My ene-
mies have done for me at last."
"Your enemies?" cried Shirley eagerly., "Tell me who they are, so I may
go to them?' """'  ." **'-*-
"Yes/ dear, you shall know eyery-

•Very .won. rather,, as you w; o.'
said Shirley gently. "After all." slie
added in aii effort to appear cheerful.
'•what matter where we live so Ion:,'
as we hnve each other?"
ShL' drew away to hide her tear.3 an.:
left the room on pretense of inspecting
the house. She looked into the tjin!ii;r
room and kitchen and opened the cur
boards, and when she returned there
were no visible signs of trouble in h.j

said.     "I've .always   wanted   a   Iii 11*

silently,he blessed her l\_»v making hi

"Yes, dear, it's not bad," he sail"
"There's not much room, though."
"There's quite enough," 'she insisted
"Let me see." She began to count o:.
her fingers. "Upstairs, three room?

"No." smiled the judge; "then-come,

somewhat scandalized.
"Work,"   repeated   Shirley  very  decisively.

"You work, Shirley?   Impossible!"
"Why .not?   My book has been selling.'.well while I was abroad.   I shall

VICTORIA DRY  The citizens of Merritt and  particularly the officers and  members of the Merritt Athletic  Association have every reason to  view with satisfaction the results of the celebration which  was given on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week. Financially  the enterprise was a gratifying  success and in every other respect it fully lived up to the  splendid standard that has been  set by this 'well known  institu-  '��� tion in the past.        '  The question arises, however,  and has occasioned much discussion of late as to whether or  ���* not it is feasible and satisfactory  to hold the two days' celebration.  Many are inclined to the theory  that one day is ample to devote  to the field   sports   and , horse  . races, and after all there is much  to be commended in this contention. We cannot see how the  financial results would be affected in the least were the. under-  . taking confined to one day and  on the other hand it might mean  a larger attendance in view of  the lesser sacrifice in time and  money imposed on the general  public and particularly those  from outside points.  Then in reference to the horse  races it is true that we are in  sore need of a good race track  and other equipment, but aside  from that in future years it  might be well to import a man  ���Vi0 has had lots  of experience  would not only meet- present re- to- show   that   the   statements  quirements but  provide  for the  future as well.  TELEPHONE SERVICE  At last night's meeting of the  Nicola Valley Board of Trade a  strong vote of censure was passed on Charles Stevens, superintendent of the government telephone service and the board asks  for the appointment of a superintendent for this particular district. The grievance against Mr.  Stevens is that he is ignorant of  conditions in this district and is  indifferent in his treatment of  the local service.  This is a severe indictment but  we believe that the board has  good reason for passing it.  Aside from any deficiencies that  may be charged up to Mr. Stevens it is patent that the importance of this district demands  better consideration in the matter  of telephone service. An evidence of the neglect that marks  the conduct of this utility is  found in the failure to provide  the exchange for Merritt though  it was promised many months  ago. The business men and  citizens of Merritt have been  seriously inconvenienced through  the absence of an exchange and  it is understood, that unless  something definite matures very  shortly a private service wiir be  installed.-  published in these columns at  that time were in accordance  with the facts inasmuch as they  have been approved of by the  president of the Kettle Valley  line. Construction will start out  of Merritt up the Coldwater and  fully thirty miles of the road-will  be built this year.  Jack McMillan is back in Nicola  valley bringing with him his  diamond drill and a crew of men..  He is now engaged in drilling on  the property of the Nicola Valley- Developemerit Co. in the vicinity of Merritt. Jack's many  friends are glad to welcome him  back to Merritt after an absence  of five months. Amongst Mr.  McMillan's crew are J. Westcott  and A. Gillis of Vancouver, two  experienced drillers.   .  NOTICE  Season 1910    ^  Imported pure  bred Clydesdale  .

The advent of  an institution of the character of  the Canadian Pacific into a mining camp holds much significance and justifies the general  public in viewing with a large  measure of optimism the future  of that camp.    .

The directors of the Merritt  Light and Power Co. are busy  completing their plans for the  installation of an electric lighting  system in Merritt. At a meeting  last Saturday preliminary arrangements were pretty well advanced.  A. R. Dickson, of Victoria, an  electrical expert, has been engaged to furnish estimates and  ���> further details and he has been  looking oyer the local situation  this week. He will present a  comprehensive report to another  mee+i"ng in the course of a day or  so. It is likely that work will be  undertaken at once as soon as  certain negotations have been  put through.  .  The cost of providing 1500 sixteen candle power lights  would  be $7,500 with an additional cost  of $4,500 for wiring and outside  -work.    An-effort will  be made  to secure power from the .mines  for the time being and not only  would this obviate, the  operation  of the system  but . it would reduce the original as well as. the  subsequent cost.     It would then  require an  expenditure .>f only  $4,500.    Mr. /Dickson: estimates  that 400 lights would- be about  ;   the maximum required at present.  The. question   of   lighting   the  streets will likely be  laid, over  until   the  town-is incorporated  early in the autumn.  tion and has been taken up with  certain members of the press in  the Terminal city. The proposal  is that the organization be formed while the exhibition is in progress in Vancouver and it should  meet with the warm approval of  every member of the fourth  estate throughout British Columbia.

MEN ARE MISLED       -.  , During.the past few . days a  large number of men have passed through Merritt on foot and  carrying their packs upon their  backs. They were on their way  from Tulameen and Princeton  to Vancouver.  It seems that these men were  induced to come from Spokane to  work on construction for the V.  V. & E. railway.

When they  expressed  dissatisfaction to the'  bosses they were hustled off like  a lot of sheep and told to go on  to Vancouver being informed by  the bosses that the coast city was  only forty miles  distant.    This  state, of affairs should be remedied at   once   and   the   proper  authorities should see  to it that  men are not brought from   Spokane   under    false    pretences.
