NICOLLA VALLEY'S FUTURE  Few districts in. British Columbia can look into the future  with greater hope or confidence  than can the Nicola Valley. Assured of splendid transportation  facilities and endowed with  wonderful natural resources, we  have every reason for regarding  with bright anticipation the  future that lies before our dis-  tricf  The cattle industry, agriculture and mining as well as our  other industrial and mercantile  interests have enjoyed substantial progress during the past few  years and now have we a firm  foundation on which  to build our  future.  The construction of the Kettle  valley railway will be undertaken  in the course of three months  and will be completed within the  space of three years and few can  really comprehend the wonderful  results that will follow in the  wake of this new agency of development. Not alone will the  local communities be served with  direct communication with the  boundary country but they will  be situated on the mainline of a  road that passes through the  Crows Nest country and will  eventually pierce the intervening  districts and secure an outlet at  the coast.  Then, too, we have assurances  that the Canadian Northern railway will have a line south from  Kamloops into theTNicola county  before the close of 1913 and after  all three years is but a brief  mement in the life of any com-  hiunity. A railroad is a developing agency and with the excellent transportation facilities that  will be provided by these new  lines Nicola valley will not only  have greater access to the outside  markets but will also be in a  position to properly promote the  growth and development of its  industries. One evidence of the  growth that must be imperative  is the annoucement of the Nicola  Valley Coal and Coke Co. with  tfie completion of this road they  will immediately install one  thousand furnaces for the manufacture of coke  in Middlesboro  ior shipment to the boundary.  "We realize that we wijl have a  natural market in the boundary  country and the sooner this line  is built the better for us" is the  contribution of W. H. Armstrong,  general manager of the company.  And what is true of this industry  must also be true of other industries so that we as a people  have every reason to feel confident of what the future holds  in store for us.  -o-  With this" issue The News  publishes a sixteen page paper  and in this way furnishes striking evidence of the success that  is attending its .career. It. has  fallen to the lot of few newspapers to start with ' twelve  pages, but the addition of four  pages within the first month is  possibly without parallel in the  newspaper annals of. British Columbia. It is true we have not  yet installed all the departments  that the management proposes  to install, but these will be provided as expeditiously as circumstances will,permit. In the  course of two or three weeks "we  will install a modern typesetting  machine, and we will then be in  a position to give to the people  of Nicola valley and the constituency of West Yale as well as  the province at large one of the  best weekly publications west of  the Rockies. We sincerely trust  that our efforts in this direction  will meet with a fair measure of  appreciation, and satisfied that  they will, we can assure the  public that, we .will, strive to  meet their best wishes in every  department.  George H. Cowan, member for  Vancouver, has openly charged  on the floor of the Dominion  house that Japanese are being  brought inio British Columbia by  way of the Queen Charlotte  Islands in open violation of  the^agreement���between���the,  Mikado's goverment. and the  Canadian government.. This is  a matter that should be immediately investigated and if it is  true more stringent measures  should be adopted at Ottawa in  dealing with this problem. If  true, it will only confirm the  suspicion that a large share of  the people of this province have  always held, that even the Japanese government cannot be trusted to live up to an obligation.  Mr. Cowan's charge has been  substantiated by fishermen, and  others in close touch with Queen  Charlotte islands.  We rejoice that the reported  death of John Houston wTas incorrect   and  that   the    veteran  j our nalisfchas ��0'; fgtr. <been spar ed  to promotel|thSf^od^^^rk that  he has^beeii;.conducting: ior the  past few1 years iri; ffis province.  The Fourth: Estate has^ a valued member, in.-. Mr. Houston and  British . Columbia has a citizen  that it can ill afford to. lose. That  he will . en j oy a speedy .restoration to health and activity and  that the fullest measure of success will attend his efforts in  connection with the Fort George  Tribune is the fondest hope of  his host of warm friends scattered throughout the length and  breadth of the province.  Additional Locals  Lou Barlow, Andrew Kallih  and Karl Anderson leave in the  course of a few days for Southern  Alberta where they will take up  pre-emptions.  Mount    Vesuvius  eruption.  is  again in  New  Westminster  labor men  have organized a board of trade.  The Saturday Sunset appai>  ently delights in flaying McBride  and Bowser and so incessant have  its attacks become that they are  being treated with ridicule  rather than seriousness by the  people of this province. That  the electors.of British Columbia  have implicit faith in the McBride administration was evidenced by its sweeping victory  ati the polls in November last,  and even the editor of the Sunset  is now forced to admit that McBride is fully redeeming his preelection pledges���a tribute that  can be paid,to few premiers.  It is sincerely hoped that some  of the government money that  will be spent through this district during the coming year will  be employed in putting Nicola  avenue in shape so as to obviate  the mud and water nuisance. It  could not be expected of the  government that they would  maintain side streets but we can  reasonably expect the road superintendent to devote a little attention to the main government  road which passes through the  heart of this thriving town.  The News is inaugurating a  popularity contest in connection  with its circulation department,  and the excellent character of the  prizes that are offered is reassur-  ing^=of^an=active==^interest=^aiid=  substantial results. The contest  will be open to the constituency  of West Yale and the ciiy of  Kamloops.  Sidewalks For Merritt  It is proposed to place sidewalks  along Nicola and Quilchena Avenues in Merritt. The property  owners along both of these  thoroughfares have taken up the  matter and are. circulating subscription lists. They hope to receive financial assistance from  the government as well.

There are  courts at Coutlee, Middlesboro  and Nicola, and it is likely one  will be provided for Merritt. It is  likely that a four cornered league  will be organized and a suitable  trophy hung up.

Fruit Growers to Meet  Fruit growers from all parts of  the province will meet in.convention at Kamloops on April 12 and  13 when they will confer with officials of the C.P.R. and Dominion Express Co. with reference  to transportation and marketing  questions. A number of Nicola  delegates will likely be in attendance.  Last Month's Shipments  The shipment of coal from the  Middlesboro mines for the month  of February reached the magnificent total of 12,307 tons. At an  average of 35 tons to the car this  would niean 355 cars. Considering that February was a short  month this was a remarkably  good showing, being an average  of 15 cars or 515 tons daily. The  ���output for the month of March  promises to eclipse that of any  previous, month.  For a Fall Fair  The question as to whether or  not Nicola Valley will have an  agricultural exhibition this year  will be formally discussed at a  meeting of the Farmers' Institute in Hyland's hall on the evening of Tuesday, March 22nd.  The meeting has' been called for  7.30 o'clock and will be fully representative of all parts of the  valley.  It is thought by those who are  behind the movement that plans  can be fully matured for a show  but they realize that it requires  immediate action on the part of  the part of the governing bodies.  The government grant having  already been secured the financial side of the undertaking looks  encouraging. The boards of  trude of Merritt and Nicola may  also join in the movement.  Down From Fort George  It is now a. certainty that the  Grand Trunk Pacific railway will  bring its branch line south from  Fort George, and it is probable  that it will penetrate the Cariboo  country. The North Thompson  route1 has been abandoned and  the branch lines bill which has  been passed at Ottawa, provides  for the Fort George connection.

H. Anthony and a number  of others will go to Spences  Bridge next Tuesday for the  Conservative convention.  ASHCROFT  Chas. A. Semlin has returned  from a trip to Seattle and coast  points.  The Ashcroft football team  have arranged a game*with Kamloops to be played, at Ashcroft on  March 25th.  QUILCHENA  William Everson returned from  the coast Monday night.  Lawrence  from New  Vancouver.  Guichon    is  Westminster  back  and  Worst Disaster in  Road's History  Still  Digging  for Victims   in  Rogers Pass Slide  The  roads in this district are  in bad shape because of the mud.  F.-'G. Moore the well known  representative of the Fraser  Valley Nurseries is still in town  and is doing a good business.  There promises to be a large  settlement along the banks of  the Fraser immediately north of  Lytton this coming year. The  valuable lands are well adapted  to fruit growing, and irrigation  systems will be installed in some  places.  Willis West of the B, C. Express Co. went to Victoria on  Sunday.  The roads in this district are  in pretty fair shape though the  warm sunshine will largely improve them.  Through trains from the east  are running again the slides at  Rogers Pass and Palliser having  been cleared.  The ranchers have commenced  ploughing as a result of the mild  weather of the past week.  The ranchers are starting to  get busy in this vicinity, the  warm weather permitting work  in the fields.  Thos. Flynn of Merritt was  here this week on his way to  Douglas Lake.  The management of the Quilchena hotel is looking forward  to a busy tourist season. Many  enquiries have already been received.  J. J. Ting & Co.   are  shipping  two cars of potatoes to Vancouver  this week.  D. W. Rowlands of the Ashcroft Journal is now at the coast  on business.  Road Superintendent Dan  Sutherland is busy preparing for  the biggest season he has yet experienced. Men and horses are  being gathered together, and it  is likely that the Lytton-Lilloett  road will be undertaken first.  COUTLEE  The roads are fast-drying up,  making the going much easier.  Unknown parties broke into  the cellars of S. J. Solomon late  Sunday night and stole a quantity  ^of^freT3r=as=weIl=as=some^dry^  goods. The loss was not very  heavy, but suspicion points to  some of the Indians in the neighborhood. A number of kloochmen  were up in court at Merritt on  Wednesday, but so far nothing  could be established.  LOWER NICOlA  T. Vicary returned last evening  from the meadows up the Cold-  water. He reports everything to  be in good shape.  -o-  ASPEN GROVE  Francis the two year old son  of John and Mrs. Garcia died  last Saturday after a lengthy  illness.  A. E.   Fyall is  spending a  few  days at his ranch in Siwash Meadows this week.  Mr. and Mrs. F. W. Crowder  who have taken over the Mansfield place were visitors to Merritt on Tuesday.  W. Hunter and D. Hazlehurst  spent Sunday in Coutlee.  Dan  Mclnnes  is  expected up  from'Victoria on Monday.  F. Ludwick. of Merritt, visited  in this  district for  a couple of  days this week.    A.   Guthrie re-  ^turned^with-him.  G. R. Bates left on Wednesday  for Merritt and Nicola.  Lou Austin was in town yesterday.  J. A. Menzies the well known  Merritt merchant has purchased  the outfit of the Canford sawmill  and proposes to operate it on an  extensive scale.  There is lots of snow in this  district yet being as deep as four  feet in some places.  G. B. Armstrong of Merritt,  was here on Wednesday on his  way home, from Hedley and  Princeton.  S. J. Solomon has installed the  McCaskey filing system in his  local store.  There promises to be an active  season in the local mining camp,  and already extensive plans are  being laid by some of the owners  and operators.  Shivels and Grey have almost  completed their contract ef cutting timber fer the Middlesboro  =mines.=_JThe=depth__^of==sno-W_^orL  the mountain side has retarded  the work in a measure but everything is ready to run down as  soon as the snow goes.  Wm. Corkle and N. S. McDou-  gall are busy with a contract to  cut 200,000 feet of logs for Lou  Austin. Thomas Hunter will  saw them up in the spring.  With Mrs. Lyall and Mrs.  Rhodes as hostesses a delightful  evening was spent at the home  of J. Rhodes last Friday evening*  A number from Merritt were in  attendance.  The Nicola Valley News was  possibly the first paper in the  province to publish a story of the  disaster at Rogers Pass on the  mainline of the C. P. R. It now  transpires that many of the victims were white men comprising  work train crews and foremen of  bridge and road gangs.  It was one of the worst disasters in the history of the road  and undoubtedly the most serious  in the mountain section. The  men were engaged in clearing  away smaller slides when the  larger one came down and swept  them with tons of debris intojjthe.  canyon below. Following that  another slide came down carrying away 600 feet of snowsheds  though no person was hurt. The  first transcontinental train came  through Tuesday night.  The list of dead in the disaster  include the following: R. J.  Buckley, conductor; W. Phillips,  engineer; J. J. Fraser, road-  master; T. Griffith, fireman; A.  Pottruff, euginee; J. McLelland,  bridgeman; A. Johnson, foreman; C. Anderson, foreman; F..  Wellander, foreman; D. J. McDonald, bridgeman; A. Mahon,  brakeman; G. Nichols, bridge-  man, [and twelve of bridge foreman McDonald's men and thirty-  seven Japs.  The terrible accident at Wellington on the line of the Great  Northern, and which cost over  one hundred lives, is said to be  the worst in the history of that  road. A passenger train was  carried down into a canyon by a  huge rock slide of rock and snow.  The work of recovering the  bodies is still going on. The  railroads^of^the^west^estimate^  their loss the last week at $2,-  500,000.  A Serial Story  The News proposes to introduce a department in the paper  that has long since become popular with the readers of almost  every recognized journal in the  land, and that is a good bright  serial story. The management  has completed plans for securing  one of the very latest and most  entertaining novels of present  day literature and will publish  the initial installment of the tale  in the next issue.  it i  .1  Hi Friday, March 11, 1910  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  9  M  All well informed men read  and nearly all who read  .~"~      magazines are well informed.

Kennedy left yesterday  for Vancouver and Seattle.    He  | will go east to Chicago in a few  days.  The cemetery at Nicola is in a  delapidated state and some of  the more enterprising citizens of  that town are considering plans  for improving it. Some of the  tomb stones have fallen down  and.the grounds show a lamentable lack of care. '1 think that  it is mature time that something  was done about it" remarked one  Nicola business man.

George Ward,  Proprietor  Ashcroft,  ���. c.  Promises to be Active Interest in Game  in Nicola Valley.  The announcement that plans  would be laid for the organization of a baseball team in Nic-  'ola valley this coming season has  been received with favor in sporting circles. An active interest  is already being manifested  which augurs well for the success of the undertaking.  "We have excellent material  here for a team and we want to  get busy right away" remarked  one well known sporting enthusiast. "It will be very little  trouble to import one or two  good men and with what we  have we should be able to organize a team that would be a credit  to the valley-."  It'will not be long before the  ground will be dry enough to get  out for practices and the preliminary work should be well in  hand before that hour arrives.  The question of ball grounds will  engage the attention of the supporters of the club, and some  scheme should be devised by  which grounds would be provided  that would serve for the valley as  a whole, a central nark that  would be accessible from all parts  of thie valley. Then too,. it would  be possible to form a league in  which Merritt, Nicola and Middlesboro could have teams and  this would be one of the strongest agencies for building up a  good valley team.  Miss May Sutton, the queen of  tennis players, will likely appear  in some of the Vancouver tournaments this season. Miss Hotch-  kiss, the coast champion, didn't  last long against Miss Sutton in  a match at Long Beach, Cal., the  other day, the latter taking two  straight sets.  There will be a limit placed on  the salaries paid to hockey players after this season. The National Hockey Association will  bind each club not to exceed a  salary of one thousand dollars  for the season for any one player.

The pasr  sage occupied six weeks and  there were none of the comforts  and conveniences that we find in  the floating palaces on the high;  seas today. Priorto leaving  England Mr. Lindley - had the  distinction of riding on.the first  railroad train in that land.  For six years a member of the  United States army he tells of  how in 1855 he crossed the Isthmus of Panama- with the thermometer hovering ��� around 125 in  the shade. That was about  Christmas time.  In 1862 British Columbia was  exploited and for a season Mr.  Lindley packed for. the miners on  the Cariboo road. Then he came  to Nicola Valley and camped on  the land now occupied by William  Voght's house in Merritt There  wTere no white men in the valley  at that time and very few Indians.  Leaving' here for a time he  went to the Okanagan valley locating at Mission now known as  Kelowna. The land on which  the town of Kelowna. now stands  was then owned by Mr.' Lindley.  After'eight, years' residence there  this hardy pioneer experienced  difficulties that resulted in his  removal to the Pennys ranch near  Ashcroft. It was on a cold Deer,  ember night that he was frozen  out of house and home all his  grain being utterly ruined.  In May 1870 he returned to  Nicola from Pennys and well he  remembers the following year  when James Chapman came  down over the Nicomen trail.  He it was who sold Marcus Woodward his first seed potatoes.  Mr. Lindley' s home at that time  was at Potatoes Illahee sixteen  miles this side of Spences Bridge.  In 1863  Mr,   Lindley married  =one-of=the=nieces=of=Chief=Nicola  in honor of whom  the  town  at  the foot of the lake was  named.  She has been his faithful partner  for 47 years and they are happy  and contented in their comfortable home at Lower Nicola.

I m  Friday, March 11, 1910  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  inirig  In the Province  Finance Minister Bowser's Interesting Review  of Important Industry  In his budget speech in the Provincial Legislature last week, Hon.  W. J. Bowser made exhaustive and  interesting reference to every department of industrial activity centered  in British Columbia.  His review of the mining situation  has special significance to the residents of Nicola Valley and it is given  as follows:  "In mining the province has had  a successful year, not only from the  point of view of actual output, but  in respect to new fields and increased development. The year 1907 was  the banner year in value of output,  the aggregate being nearly $26,000,  000, copper, however, in that year  averaged over 20c. a pound, while it  has since been ranging in the vicinity of 33c. As, you all know, copper  makes up the principal part.of the  actual output of ore, and when I tell  you that the tonnage of 1909 is estimated to \ have been 20 per cent,  greater than .in 1907, the estimated  value of which is $24,000,000, you  will see that last year was really  ahead sof any previous year. _,._..'  "Mining is a very, important industry indeed, and in various branch  es employs about 12,000 persons,  whose wages during the. year would  represent from $15,000,000 to $18,  000,000. In this connection 1 wish  to draw attention to and confirm remarks made by the member for  Grand Forks in moving the address  in reply to the speech from the  throne. In drawing a comparison  between the industrial aspects and .  mining is such rich districts as are  found in Northern Ontario and the  state of Nevada and in British Columbia, with its immense bodies of  lower grade ores, he pointed out  that whereas in the former places in  which but ten mines are employed!  -tho���lgpp.f.t.?i.c,ii1n.riV^profits__went_Jnto^  building of-railway ' and tram lines  and in the various other direct and  indirect results which flow towards  all classes of the community.  The estimated output for 1909 follows:      ......    $ 5,610,000  ,.   .........   1,470,000  Silver   .........    ...  Copper ���...   .������  Lead      Coal       ...  Miscellaneous building  done    etc ,   1,500,000  5,300,000  1,700,000  6,790,000  Grand  total    of  .........  $24,040,000  "Thc  outlook for    the   mining in  dustry was never  brighter,   and    although we have had    the   promising  0new fields  of Portland canal,   . Quee  Charlotte and  Skeena river undergoing  development,    it is pleasing    to  note. that  the   older  camps  are    an  nually producing     an increased    ton  nage,  so that    without    relying    o  such   fancy  prices    as    prevailed    i  1907, we can with the aid of the de  velopment   being   carried   on in    new  coal mines, reasonably expect a min  era]   production    annually   increasin  in both tonnage and money value.  "It is only reasonable to conclude  that as the metal market improves  British Columbia will again be recording banner years for its mining  industry.  "And need I say that the opening  of the central and Northern interiors  oi the province by railways will give  access to new fields which will soon  after development bring thc annual  production up to the $100,000,00  mark.  Opening of New Church  The hew Methodist church at  Merritt will be formally opened  on Sunday, April the 17th.  Rev. Mr. Hedley the popular  pastor, has been in communication  with Rev. Dr. Sipprell, president  of Columbia College, New Westminster, and it is expected that  this well known theologian will  have charge of the dedicatory  services. The contractors are  busy completing the building and  the interior furnishings will be  installed in the course of a coudle  of waeks. Rev. Mr. Hedley and  his family will take up their residence in Merritt very shortly.

Using a concrete example  2000 tons of Cobalt ore would realize the same profit as 1,000,000 tons  of ore mined by the Granby Consolidated or a ratio of benefit of 500 to  1 in favor of this,country. The conclusion to draw, of course; is that  the tonnage and not the value of the  output represents its true importance of mining to the country in  which it is carried on. We have to  guage it, too, not only by the actual numbers of persons engaged in  and about the mines, but by the  numbers of employed in its transportation and in treatment of ores,  and in the erection and operation of  mining  and    smelter    plants,  in the  Metropolitan  MEAT MARKET  NICOLA, B.C.
