 Z&7 .*  ���1  A'  V - _ <�� r'  V;  Vol. 1, No   17  MERRITT, B. C. JUNE 10, 1910  Price 5 Cents  Nicola Valley Lumber Co.  Plans a Big New Saw Mill  Negotiations Are Now Under  Way for Big  New Plant  A large new sawmill will in all  probability be erected by the  Nicola Valley Lumber Co. at  Canford.' .Ever since the old  mill was burned down nearly two  years ago the company has been  operating at a greatdisadvantage.  -With 6000 acres of timber  limits at. their disposal there is  plenty pf'material.to keep a good  sized mill running for many  year's. "Negotations are now under way for the erection of a big  new mill and one that will meet  -the-future as'well as the present  requirements- of -the company.  It will be fitted out with the most  modern machinery and plant and  will largely obviate' the: embarr  assment at present experienced  through the.absence of a sufficient supply "of lumber.  through which you pass. Another fact was demonstrated and  it was this���the Reo car, is not  alone fast and safe but it is well  adapted to the roads as they are  found in the Nicola valley and  contiguous districts. It has remarkable powers of endurance.  In the words of the automobile  man "it stands up well".  A Mbtor Drive  Over to Kamloops  -?\'i- -  . *  f,  One of the Finest. of Tourist  'Routes in Upper Country  To travel; from Merritt to Kamloops and back in an automobile  is a delightful experience  and  opens up one of the finest tourist  routes in the province.  '   ;Last week,a party  comprising  M: L. Grimmett; J. P.   Boyd,  J:  A. Conklin,"O.  R.  Thomas and  ��� S. N.  Dancey made  the  trip in  , the-latter's new Reo touring car  anda,most delightful,trip it was.  Leaving Merritt just at noon  on  Thursday, the; party . stayed   a  short "time at Nicola before proceeding to Quilchena for. lunch.;  The Gilmore hill is a dangerous  spot.    It *~isr hard- for a car to  negotiated but'the big Reo made  it look .like a level stretch   and  under ttie* clever direction of Mr.  "Thomas; an expert" driver from  -ther-coast,���excellent ��� time   was  made. .  ~"_^6i^rieari3rtw>"hours theparty  stopped at Quilchena after which  they pulled out for Kamloops  making the run-;in a little' over  two hours. The. road is an excellent one, though hilly in places  but it makes,, a delightful path  for.' an automobile. Kamloops  was reached just shortly after 5  o'clock the run.. from Merritt  having been made in about three  hours.  But the most delightful feature of -the trip was yet to come.  One has. to enjoy an early morn-  ing;drive,to know and appreciate  its beauty. On the return trip  the party left Kamloops shortly  before 5 o'clock Saturday morning. The pure, fresh air of the  earlytn morning was certainly  invigorating and with nature at  its best the attractiveness of- the  journey was greatly enhanced.  A-little delay was occasioned  through horses on the road but  in spite of .that the run to Merritt  was made in a little better than  three hours. Breakfasting before they'left Kamloops the entire  party was in' a happy spirit and  enjoyed to^-he full the pleasure  of the outing.  . Mr. Thomas who has driven  cars in all parts of the coast,  sajrs that he never encountered a  better country road. Not alone  for its good roadbed it is Worthy  but for.the wealth of scenic  effect that embroiders it and in  places makes a veritable avenue  WHAT WAS .MADE  The reports presented to the  executive of the Merritt Athletic  Association Tuesday evening affecting the Victoria day celebration showed that over and .above  all expenses and with the property of the club fully "cleared  there was a balance in the bank  of upwards of ond hundred dollars.   ,:  the  was  THE DIAMOND VALE  The'staff at No..3 mine of  Diamond Vale Collieries Co.  substantially increased this week  and the plant has been put, into  operation.^ The shipment of coal  will start shortly and. the -company proposes to* operate on - an  elaborate scale in the very , near  future.   ,- \\77:! ; .,-*:' s-     '    "'  DR   TUTTIL BUYS ,CAR  Dr. G. H. Tutill has purchased  one of the 1910 models of the Ford  runnabout car through C. R.  Thomas of the Vancouver Auto &  Cycle Co. The car is one of the  finest on the market, neat and attractive in design, simple in  mechanism, and fast and serviceable in operation. It will be a decided convenience to this well  known member of the local medical fraternity in making his calls  about the town and district. Mr.  Thomas, who negotiated the sale  is confident that he can place a  number of cars through this .district. He is one of the best salesmen on the coast and with ; the  keen eye and good judgement of  the shrewd and tactful vendor be  appreciates the local, situation  fully and feels assured that ��� the  time is ripe for the introduction  of the automobile into Nicola  valley.      - .    ���, '.-'  GOLDWIN SMITH DEAD  Dr. Goldwin Smith, the great  Canadian economist, author and  historian, died at his home in Toronto, Tuesday afternoon. He had  been ill for some time as the result  of an accident last winter when  lie fell and broke his thigh.     '  .,��� A  -.  Additional Locals       ?  s  _VB. Gladwin of North Vancouver is here on a visit to his son  at Aspen Grove. ,'  C. I. Wilson one of -the directors of the Coal Hill syndicate is  here looking over the property.

Garratt of Vancouver is  in this district looking over the  situation with a view to' investment: He is a guest'of'"C. S.  Hubbs.  Plans have been completed  for the visitof the local, Oran'ge"-  men to Kamloops on July 12 and  there promises to be a' good representation. The special train  which has already been announced, will prove a great .convenience.     .  ���- . -  A' meeting of "the publicity  board for Nicola valley was held  in the Bank of Montreal, Nicola,  yesterday and it was decided ;to  undertake the publication of "an  illustrated book (at once. ��� This  book will be. fully descriptive of'  the district'and should,be'a credit'to the'bpard as well" as" the  valley. Those present "at yesterday's meeting were A. W.  Strickland, W..E. Duncan, Geo.  Murray and S., N. Dancey the  only absentee being M. L. Grimmett.  . Mrs. Kirby- is back from a two"  weeks' visit with friends at Vancouver.        ���        ���  A mounted parade of 'D"  squadron, British Columbia  Horse, has been called for Merritt tomorrow afternoon. This  is the first public drill.  A. W. McVittie returned yesterday from the Aspen Grove  district where he has been looking over some land.  The local hotels report a heavy  season so far. Every night the  rooms are all taken and in some  instances the accommodation has  been over taxed.  The biggest train pulled out of  Merritt to date was that of Tuesday morning. There were twenty-five cars of coal,��tencars'of  cattle, a baggage coach and passenger ear. The mines are putting out an unusually large  amount of coal these days, the  daily shipment reaching well over  twenty ears. If present conditions continue June will be the  largest month in the History of  the mines.'        . ���   '���-��� *; '  M. L. Grimmett has rearranged  his weekly programme and in 'future will visit Merritt on Monday,  Wednesday and Friday, staying  at Nicola for Tuesday; Thursday  and Saturday. .  William Harmon and" Val -V.  Crockett have purchased-S. N.  Dancey's Reo touring car and  have placed it on the livery. Mr.  Crockett who has completed his  drilling operations for the- Diamond Vale Co. will operate . the  car. Mr. Dancey is bringing in a  new and larger car, expecting it  here tonight or Monday.  Big Shipment of Cattle  Out of Nicola This Week  BALL FANS TO MEET MONDAY  Organization Work Will be   Completed  in Readiness for the Season  Every baseball fan in Merritt  or Nicola as well as those who  share the least interest in the  great summer game are asked to  attend a meeting at the Cold-  water hotel on Monday evening  next when the organization work  for the ensuing season will be  completed.'  The season is now well advanced but the boys have been indulging in practice work so that  they are in fairly good condition.  But organization work is necessary. There should be a directing head and it is towards this  end that the meeting has been  called for Monday evening.  Kamloops is looking for a  game. Princeton is. casting  longing eyes this way in search  of glory and other towns are  looking for a clash with the Nicola  valley bunch and with a good fast  team, such as there is today in  this district, no effort should be  spared by the promoters and supporters of the game to place the  local club on a good footing and in  that way facilitate the work of a  season.

The Kamloops city band has  been secured for the Dominion  day celebration at Nicola and it  is almost assured that a special amount  train will be provided from Kamloops for that day. -* The committees in charge of the enterprise  had a meeting at Nicola last  night when plans were further  advanced. It was decided to set  aside.$70 as well as special prizes  for small sports and $350 and  specials'for the horse racing.  It is reported that Archdeacon  Pentreath, well' known through  this district, was-chosen as Bishop of Westminster, to succeed the  late Bishop Dart...  ,,,  Mrs. J. J.

In the vicinity now known  as  "Quilch^narbut"formally"a"s_HariT  ilton Hill, there were settled Mr.  Blackburn and family, Miss Log-  gie,   now   Mrs.   Kirkpatrick   of  Grand Prairie, Robert Hamilton,  part owner and manager of the  Hamilton ranch, Mr. McCormick  road   superintendent,   Mr.   and  Mrs. Florin Mickle, also Mr. and  Mrs. Wheeler Mickle and young  family.    Of the above Mrs. Florin Mickle is now  the only  resident in the valley, and although  no longer youthful in  years she  is still youthful in  spirit,   active  in good work and displaying an  of   vigor   and   energy,  which many of her juniors fail  to show.    It is the earnest hope  of her numerous friends that she  will enjoy  many  years of happiness and prosperty.     The few  residents of  by-gone years still  remaining in  the  valley  hardly  realize the changes wrought in  the flight of time.     To them the  changes   have   come   gradually.  Only   when   reflection   bids   us  consider,   that but   one   of the  above early residents is still with  us, do we realize what effacement  is wrought by the passing years.'  Quilchena was a portion of the  wide field .which the writer enjoyed visiting.    The Blackburns,  Mickles and Triangle were cheerful homes, and offered   a  glad  welcome.    Difficulties and trials  they no doubt had, as early settlers had to insure themselves to  such.    But  those of whom we  write wore a cheerful countenance   and   were   hopeful    amid  trials and privations.    It did one  good to meet the gehialand hospitable Bob Hamilton,   who- had  the faculty . of t looking  at the  sunny   side   of', conditions   and  events.   Words and acts of kind-  ness flowed from a., generous  "heart, which much of the rough  side of life had not hardened.  His mining experience extended  over the leading camps on the  Pacific Coast and through the interior of British Columbia. We  regarded him as one who would  shrink from doing a mean thing.  When the Triangle passed into  other hands he sought a home on  the east side of the Rockies,  where he died a few years ago.  Douglas Lake, now the scene  of the extensive operations of  the Douglas Lake Cattle Company, had but four settlers at the  time of our first visit to that  section of Nicola. John Douglas,  of Scottish parentage, was the  first to locate in that quarter.  The location is one of great  beauty and-utility. For several  miles in every direction, the rolling hills were covered with luxuriant bunch-grass and abundantly watered with kikes and  streams. Mr. Douglas who had  examined stock-runs in different  countries, considered the grazing  in Nicola the best he had seen,  both for nutritious and abundant  grass and a plentiful supply of  water. Mr. Douglas was a  shrewd Scot, and foresaw a great  day for British Columbia. He  came to British Columbia in declining health, and while he did  not expect complete restoration,  was satisfied that the change to  the interior of the Province had  prolonged his years. He was a  successful rancher, and had he  recovered health would no doubt  have been a large land-owner  and extensive stock-raiser. His  influence was arrayed on the side  of good citizenship. *He took an  active interest in both church  and state.   '  Thomas Johnston for so many  years section boss on the Canadian Pacific railway, at Nicola and  previously at other points on the  mainline has been superannuated. He will retire, from active  service in the course of a few  days and will go back east for a  -vacation���Mr.-Johnston���is-one  of the most popular men ever  associated with the C.P.R. service in this district and his host  of warm, friends throughout the  yalley will learn with pleasure of  his success in reaching the sphere  of leisure after so many years of  good hard work. That he will  enjoy to the full the rest that he  has so well earned is the ardent  wish that will follow him wherever he goes.  Princeton won from Hedley in  baseball, the boys' from the  Nickle Plate camp being outclassed. Nicola Valley would  like to get a game on with one  or both of these teams.  The Minto cup holders just reversed the score of the previous  week in their game with Vancouver last.Saturday. It was one of  the biggest crowds of the season  that congregated in Queen's park  New Westminster, to see the Royals turn the trick. The score was  9 to 4. The Vancouver team was  seriously disorganized but made a  game fight of it. This win puts  the Royals in the lead for the provincial lacrosse championship but  the Vancouvers say that they are  going to even up matters at home  tomorrow.  There is some talk of organizing  a lacrosse team in the valley. A  number of good players are available and with the infusion of new  blood a pretty good aggregation  could be gathered together.  Over Two Hundred Head and  an Average of 1357 lbs.  Nicola valley has long since  been recognized as one of the  foremost live stock producing  districts in British Columbia but  this year's record promises to  eclipse that of any previous year  not alone in the number of head  shipped   but in quality as well.  " You can look for the biggest  year yet" declared Robert Lyons  buyer for P. Burns & Co. We  have appointed McCulloch Bros.,  at Aspen Grove as our buyers  and we propose to scour" every  part of the district. I will devote my attention to the Kamloops territory for a time and.  will then come to Nicola."  "How about the Okanagan  this year? was asked.  "We will have to be shipping -  cattle into the Okanagan before,'  very long.    The supply - there is  very scarce this year."  Mr.   Lyons was in   charge of  ten cars of cattle on the outgoing,  train Tuesday   morning. - These,  cattle, .202 head in    all,   were,  shipped   from Nicola . by    the  Douglas Lake Cattle Co.   It was  the finest   bunch of cattle that-  ever went out of the valley. The  total weight for the 202 head was .  274.114 pounds or an average of -  1357 pounds to" the head.  "It is the finest' lot. of cattle  that P. Burns & Co: e*ver bought-  They beat the  best  that "ever  came from the prairies   to' say  nothing of this province."   And.  they   looked the part.    "Nicola -  bunch grass is the best feed you  can  get   for  cattle.    You; can .  take that  from   me." " That is-  the way  that Mr. Lyons put it.  This*-welU  to be a  STILL ANOTHER BOUQUET  The drive of beef shipped last  week from Tamberton ranch to  the Vancouver Prince Rupert  Meat market proved to be the  heaviest shipment received by  that company from any part of  the -upper-country,  known ranch promises  large contributor to the cattle  shipments for the ensuing year.  , -O ���  Many Thousands  In Local Realty  Sale of Town Lots and Ranch  Properties During Week  Many sales were recorded by  the local realty brokers during  the past week. A number of  outside investors have been in  the valley and two or three  ranch properties as well as town  property have changed hands.  The influx of outside money increases with each succeeding  week and it is estimated that at  least $50,000 of foreign money  was placed here.  ' The Southern B. C. Lands Co.  as well'as the Nicola Valley Investment and Land Co. Ltd. put  through the more important  deals and have several others in  the process of negotiation.  'WESTERN LEAGUE  Vancouver still leads the Northwestern league with Tacoma  second and Spokane third. Seattle is in the cellar position.

Just Stop and Think  How Easily You Can  Make Money  L. M. ALEXANDER  Real Estate Broker  412 Hastings St. West.  Vancouver, B.C.  American Farmers Turning Their  i Paces Towards Western Canada  1 ���   -^=====^=======-������-  1  The following eulogy of Western Canada is taken from the  News Bureau, of Boston, Mass.,  for which paper it was specially  written reflects the feeling of  Americans over the exodus to  Canada:  "Last year 91,000 Americans  crossed over the line to become  Canadian       farmers. They  brought $100,000,000 capital.  This season 25,000 Americans a  month are flocking to Canadian  farms, and they will bring $200,-  000,000. * Moreover, 30,000 immigrants from northern Europe  are arriving monthly.. I doubt  if there ever was before, in the  history of the world, such a vast  immigration as that now flowing  into the Canadian Northwest. It  deserves the closest scrutiny of  the people of the United States.  It is not at all pleasant, from an  American point of view, to see  in one year 200,000 Americans,  pioneer- farmers, transplant  themselves and their household  goods to another country.  Wherein lies the great advantages of the Canadian Northwest  over the western states, whence  this immigration comes ? At  Pincher Creek a" farmer who had  lived in Kansas 20 years bought  480 acres five years ago.' Two  years ago he grew 8000 bushels  of wheat off 200 acres and sold  it for $5,600. Last year he raised  12,000 bushels off 250 acres and  sold it'for $10,000, or 85 cents a  bushel. His profits from, 250  acres of wheat in Alberta last  year were greater than all his  profits from farming during 20  years in' Kansas. This is the  tale every American settler . in,  Canada sends back. He is certain of a crop of winter wheat in  Albertaof. 40,:to-60 bushels an  acre, while in Kansas he was  lucky if he harvested 12 to  14.  Thirty bushels an acre in Alberta is a very poor crop ; 45 is  an'; average.  GIFTS  OP CLIMATE *  Alberta and Saskatchewan  farmers grumble' if they do not  harvest 100 bushels of oats to the  acre. Barley grows equally well,  likewise potatoes, hay, tomatoes,  peas, beans, cauliflowers and  other vegetables. The soil of  Alberta and Saskatchewan is as  rich as that of Ohio and Indiana  before     over-cropping,    neglect  ��11>,. i'i  and under-cultivation had done  their worst. The climate of Alberta and Saskatchewan is superior to that of any state in the  Mississippi valley for .growth of  wheat, barley, oats, hay and  vegetables. Alberta and Saskatchewan are in the same latitude  and have a similar climate to  Normandy, Belgium, Holland,  Denmark and Germany, whose  beef, pork, poultry, eggs, butter,  milk and cheese are famous. No  such vegetable gardens, meadows and(grain fields as theirs exist either in southern Europe or  United States. Belgium has a  foreign commerce of $2,500,-  000,000 yearly, and it has not  25 per cent of the area of New  York state. The basis of that  foreign trade is its farms. Belgian exports of farm products  exceed those of Canada and the  United States together.  The long summer days, and the  not too ardent rays of the midsummer sun, ripen vegetables,  hay and grain in Alberta and in  British Columbia, and in Holland, Belgium and Denmark,  slowly, but they have an" abundance and a flavor unknown  where the summer days are fierce  and hot. Rainfall and ��� snowfall  makes a still greater difference.  British Columbia, Alberta and  Saskatcnewan are all in that zone  where the prevailing winds are  from the southwest, over from  the Pacific, bearing warmth and  moisture to the fruitful prairie  lands. Calgary has a milder  winter climate than Boston or  Kansas City, just as have Brussels and Berlin. The Saskatchewan valley, extending from  Hudson Bay to British Columbia  and Montana, has the most extensive area of fertile black"  loam soil in the world. Sometimes for 200 miles you cannot  discover a rock or a gravel bed,  and this immense area is watered with ten thousand streams  and rivulets.  ANOTHER EMPIRE  British Columbia is another  empire, for it is ��� co-extensive  with Great Britain, Ireland and  Germany: Its coast line is  equal to that of all nations  bordering the- Mediterranean.  Its fisheries and its mineral  wealth excel the world. It boasts  of 3000 miles of lake and' river  transportation.- The energy of  25,000,000 horses can be harnessed in its rivers. ��� The Columbia  and the Fraser. spread out in the  interior into chains of lakes that  have no parallel for beauty or  grandeur.  More wonderful is its magnificent climate. I-have seen cultivated orchards on plateaux and  hillsides 4000 feet above sea vlevel  and have eaten apples, pears,  peaches and cherries grown in  these British Columbia valleys,- of  a flavor more delicate and luscious  than any I had ever tasted. Its  valleys when cleared and cultivated, make most1 luxurious pastures;  its vegetable gardens are unsurpassable;, its-dairy products excel  those of Munster and of Normandy;'and there is'ample room for  50,000,000 people. '    "  ; There are 250,000,000 acres of  rich wheat lands, waiting the  plow. Last, year the Canadian  Northwest grew, nearly 150,000,  000 bushels; this year it will probably grow 200,000,000 bushels,'  that is, it will grow more wheat  than Australia and Argentine  together, in 1910. /It will keep"  increasing its wheat production  by 50,000,000 yearly. . In 20 years  the Canadian Northwest will be  growing more wheat and raising  more" hogs and cattle, than either  the United States or Russia, and  Canada will be a nation of 20,000  000.- ��� -  -       -,...-     :-.<.  -Let-no-man���think-  Cana-  da's vast wheat fields are going  to flood the world with Jlour.  The annual consumption of wheat  is now increasing at the rate of  100,000,000 bushels; 50,000,000  of this increased" consumption  will come from the Canadian  Northwest.  WHAT THE FARMER FLEES .FROM  The farmers who went out a  generation ago into Kansas, Nebraska, the Dakotas and Minnesota know their farms are run  down, but they can sell for $100  or $150 an acre, and moye to  Canada and buy the most fertile  lands for $20 or $30 an acre, close  to a railroad. They won't goto  Texas, for they have had enough  of drought. The farmers of  Minnesota and the Dakotas, who  have had 20 years' experience  of J. J. ��� Hill's methods of fixing  freight rates, don't want to go  to Montana or ' Oregon, or any  other state where Mr. ',Hill can  fix rates. Pioneer farmers along  Mr. Hill's railways from-St. Paul  to Seattle are selling out their  farms and crossing the Canadian  line. A great deal of this is  due to the undue discrimination  of the railways against the farmer, to the collusion of the rail-,  ways or their subserviency to  the beef trust. For 15 years the  beef trust and the railways got  all the profits there was in the  raising of sheep, hogs and cattle  arid now there is. a deplorable  anion  Remember You  Best  Want   the  j,  iit.r  The Fraser Valley Nurseries are  amongst the oldest and best established  in the province.

FT.  i?  3  I  1  K  is  *J  !  it  a.  ft  5 1  ?i  ft  i  y  8'  '  Four' Cblonies Joinod Their Fortunes on  First Day of June  f Capetown, June 5. ^On June 1,  the four South African Colonies  merged their political systems  and came under the administration of a single central government. The long crises which  culminated in the war divided  South Africa into two hostile  damps. On the one side were  the supporters of Republican  ambitions and of Boer racial ascendency, on the other hand the  supporters of British supremacy  a*hd of a' racial equality. The  surrender of Vereeniging marked the' definite triumph of the  British;.view. The main taproot  of bitterness, the irreconcilable  conflict erfibodied in the existence  of rival flags and incompatible  political systems,in- a singularly,  homogeneous* country,'' was cut'  away. The cleavage, indeed,  still continued. The defeated  party remained in existence,, a  p^rty 'organized ~on ' racial lines  arid primarily for racial objects.  But its leabers wisely recognized that those objects did not  jtaclude .thejre versa j ofthe;,. yer-  -dict-of~the-war,-and -concentrated their energies on the organization of ctheir own supporters  anidAon rallying fresh -support* byr  Vigorous;criticism.of the administration of the victors. The British on the other hand, once -sa-  tisfie'd that the issue; of:-the ;flag  had been settled and,that,British  institutions were to,preyail,were  content to dismiss the racial  question! from their minds and  be&an.to. give play,, to jtheir natural instinct of criticizing the  government of the, day. By the  force of electoral gravitation' the'  dissatisfied _f elements .were absorbed by the solidly organized  Boer parties in the several. Colonies. .-"v"' \ yy,  pealed is' to enforce if strictly.  But why such haste? The making'of laws is, a serious'business.  Why '��� cannot legislators fully  realize that fact and proceed  cautiously and slowly.  With the growth of democracy  in this country, laws must be  based on reason and justice. A  lawns valuable not because it is  a law, but because there is right  in it. Certain it is that we have  too much law these days; if we  had less of it, of a better type  and with a stricter enforcement,  it would be to the lasting advantage of the Canadian people.

P.O, Box 20  THE COAL INDUSTRY  That there is a bright future  before   the mining industry in  this district is now fully assured.  We have previously  commented  upon   the possibilities  that the  field offers and fresh evidence of  the realization of these possibil-  , ities is coming to hand from day  to day.    Now that the Diamond  Vale Co. has resumed work we  can look for a larger coal output.  The Nicola Valley Coal and Coke  Co. is considering plans for enlarging their plant and  that too  means betterment of conditions.  The Coal   Hill   syndicate gives  promise of an early plant and the  Pacific  Coast Collieries are, already     installing      machinery.  There is no reason  why there  should not be a daily output of  nearly two thousand tons from  the various local  mines  within  the space of six months.     That  means the employment of nearly  one thousand men:     We as a  people should give the coal operators as well as the men the  fullest possible measure of encouragement for it means everything  to  them.     Nicola valley  "has already won a high  place  amongst the coal producing districts of the province and with  improved transportation facilities  we should secure  the   premier  place.     ___*   LAURIER RETIRING  A despatch from Ottawa is to  the effect that Sir Wilfrid Laur-  ier will shortly retire and that  the leaders of the party are al  ready framing plans to provide  for a successor. In the contest  of 1908 Sir Wilfrid told the  people of Canada vthat it would  be his last fight and while the  leading lights of the Liberal  forces are retiscent in the matter  it is a patent fact that they are  quietly preparing for a retirement.  A statesman is born only once  in a generation and the truth of  this is borne out in many ways.  History never fails to repeat itself and the most ardent Liberals are fearful that with the removal of Sir Wilfrid Laurier that  the party will lapse into a state  of disorganization even as did  the Conservative party when Sir  John A. Macdonald was taken  away.  Some argue that Hon. William  Fielding will follow  Sir Wilfrid  Laurier but the theory is   not  taken* seriously in Liberal circles.  It now develops that Sir Lomer  Gouin   is   a   candidate   for   the  leadership, the Liberals of. Quebec arguing that as Quebec is the j this new order of things  backbone of the support of the  party that they should have the  right to' name the man who will  direct the destinies of the party.  ' There is really no man who  stands head,and shoulders above  any of the others in. a choice of  leader. The fact of the matter  is that with Sir Wilfrid Laurier  out of harness "it will be impossible for the Liberal party to find  a man who can keep the rank  and, file of the party in line. The  history of party government is  that the tenure of office for one  party must necessarily be limited  and we believe, aside. from any  prejudice, that the moment the  Liberal party loses Sir Wilfrid  Lauries it will lose the great  magnetic force that has held it  together for so many years.  THE,DIAMOND VALE  The resumption of , operations  on the property of the Diamond  Vale Collieries Co. is worthy of  more than - passing ���, importance.  For some - months "these; "mines  have -been lying in a dormant  state., It1 was not because of the  absence'of coal because there is  a super-abundance of the very  best quality available. It was  not because of ,labor troubles,  but it was due almost entirely to  transportation difficulties.  These difficulties have been  happily adjusted and now that  the Canadian Pacific railway has  decided to accept all the coal that  the local mines can? produce*"the  Diamond Vale C<?. will, operate  on an elaborate basis. It is true  that the staff of men at present  is small but it will be substantially, increased as, conditions  make it. imperative .and ���the- day  is not far distant when this well  known'property will be one of  the largest producing agencies in  the local field. '  Largely through his indefati-  gability and' zeal�� T. J. Smith,  head of the Diamond Vale Co.,  has been successful  in  bringing  He  has obtained a new lease of life  for the company that he has the  pleasure td direct'." - Nicola Valley  owes much to Mr. Smith. Ever  untiring in his effort to,-promote  the standing of the district Mr.  Smith employs every opportunity  that comes to his hand to make  Nicola valley better known and  to earn for it a higher appreciation.. In touch-with .some of ���'the  best financial men throughout  the land he has often been the  means .of ^attracting. men_and  money to the district and now in  his Jatest* effort, the ^rehabilitation' o��. the"". Diamond �� Vale Collieries he has rendered a service  to Nicola" valley) the Value of  which cannot easily be over-estimated. It is riot so much the  present���it is the future to  which he is"'looking���and he is  one of the few men'who 'are today accomplishing a work that  means for/the_bet'termentfof the  land and the laying of a foundation  fraught   with   permanency and  that   opens   up   a   larger   and  brighter future.  The day is not far distant when  the farmers and, business men of  Nicola valley will have the opportunity of convincing the outside world that they can produce  an agricultural exhibition that  will rank with the best of the  country fairs throughout the province. We most assuredly, have  the goods to make it such and it  rests solely-with the public .and  the men who are directing the  enterprise to make it the success  that it should be. It is a healthy  omen to see a liberally patronized subscription list but that does  riot necessarily make" the exhibition. It requires a little public  spiritedness. It requires a little  expense in effort in securing exhibits for after all a large share  of the success of an enterprise of  this character is* determined by  the educational results that follow and this education is regulated by the .class and ^variety of  the exhibits.  A dangerous practice that is  indulged in by some of the ranchers and- others throughout the  .valley is that of .hobbling horses  and allowing them to run at large  on the public highway. An instance of the menace surrounding this practice was furnished  last _ week when an automobile  party met a number of hobbled  horses in one of the worst. spots  on Gilmore Hill. There was no  room for the animals to pass and  hobbled as they were they could  not run and were in imminent  danger of going over the embankment. The horses belonged  to Indians who were fishing oh*  the lake but the Indians are not  the only offenders. The authorities should see to it that this"  practice is not continued, because  a serious accident will be inevitable if it is.    '    "   o���:   ,.

Then, with n  lofty air. he added: "For four years I  was third groom of the bedchumber t<>  the second son of England's queen. 1  know .my responsibilities." .  "But you are not groom of the bedchamber here." retorted'Jefferson. -  "Whatever [ am," said Mr. Baglej  haughtily. "I am answerable "to your  father alone."  "By the way, Bagley." asked Jefferson, "when do you except father to return? I want to see him." ���  , "I'm afraid it's quite impossible, ".answered the secretary with studied insolence. "He has three important "people to see before dinner. There's the  national Republican committee and  Sergeant Ellison of the secret service  from Washington, all here by appointment.   It's quite impossible."  "I didn't ask you if it were possible  I said I wanted to see him. and I .'will  see him," answered Jefferson quietly  but firmly and in a tone and manner  which did not admit of further opposi-.  tion. "I'll go and leave word for him  on his desk," he added.      _���    ,-  He started to enter the library when  the secretary, who' was visibly perturbed, attempted to bar his way.  "There's some one in there," he said  In an undertone. "Someone waiting  for your father." '   "  "Is thpre?" replied Jefferson coolly.  "I'll see who it "Is," with which; he  brushed past Mr. Bagley and entered  the library. ' >  He had guessed aright. A woman  was there.   It was Kate'Roberts.  "Hello, Kate!-' How are you?" Jefferson decided to say nothing of the  interrupted tete-a-tete.1 but mentally he  resolved to spoil Mr.. Bagley's game  and save Kate from her o-wn folly. Or-  hearing his voice Kate turned itnu  gave a little cr> of genuine surprise.  "Why. is it you. Jeff? V thought you  were in  Europe.", ,,, _ ,  "I returned yesterday." he replied  somewhat curtly." He'"i_T'6sspfl over to  ms father's desk, ,wbere he sat down to  scribble a few words, while -Mr. Bag-,  ley. wl'o had followed' him in. scowling, was making I'ranti.- dumb"signs to  Etate.  "I fear I intrude hero." said Jefferson  pointedly.  ���'Oh, dear no. not at all." replied  Kate in some confusion. "I was waiting for my father. How Is Paris?", she,  usked.  "Lovely as ever." he answered.r  "Did yoa have a good time?" she inquired. V  "I enloyed it Immensely. I nevei  had a  better one."  "You probably were in good com  pany." she said significantly. Then  she added: "I believe Miss.Rossmor*  was in Paris." ;  "Yes. I think she was there." was bh  noncommittal answer.  To change the conversation"'' wider  was becoming decidedly personal, Ik  picked up a book that was lying on hia  father's desk and glanced at the title  It was "The American Octopus."  ���^If-you'l!-excuse-!ne._L_ll_go__andr_paj_  my Alia! respects upstairs," saidJef  feison. "I'll see you again." He gav.  Kate a friendly nod^ and without ever  glancing at Mr. Bagley left the room.  The couple stood in silence for a few  moments after lie disappeared. Ther  Kate went to the door and listened t<  ' "/ fear I intrude here."  his   retreating   footsteps. ., When   su  was sure that he was out of earshot  she turned on Mr. Bagley'indlgnautly.  "You see what,, "you expose me 10  Jefferson thinks this wasr*a rendezvous."  "Well, it was to a certain extent," re  plied the secretary unabashed. "Dldn'i  you ask me to nee you here?"       '  "Yes," said Kate, taking a lettui  from her bosom; "I wanted to ask you  what this means?"  "My dear Miss Roberts��� Kate���I"-  stammered the secretary.  "How dare you address me in thin  manner when you know I and Mr.  Ryder are engaged?" j  No one knew better that Kate1 that  this was not true, but she said It partly out of vuaitr.1 ourtly out at a desire  to  araw  out   tms   Uingiisnman   who  made such bold love to her.  "Miss Roberts." replied Mr. Bagley  loftily, "in that note I expressed my  admiration���my love for you. Your engagement to Mr. Jefferson-Ryder is,  to say the least, a most 'uncertain  fact." ' There was a tinge of sarcasm  in bis voice that did not escape Kate.  "You must not judge from appearances," she answered, trying to keep  up the outward show of indignation  ���which Inwardly she did not feel. "Jen  and I may hide a passion that burns  like a, volcano. All lovers," are not  demonstrative, you know."  The absurdity of this description a<��  applied to her relations'with Jefferson  appealed to her as so comical that slit-  burst into laughter, in which the secretary joined.  "Then why did you remain bore  with me when :the senator, went 0111  with Mr. Ryder, senior?" he demanded  "To tell you that I cannot listen to  your nonsense * any longer." ; retorted  the girl.  "What?" he cried incredulously  "You remain here to tell me that you  cannot listen to me when you could  easily have avoided llstenlng,',to me  without telling me so! Kate, your co'.d-  ness is not convincing."  "You' mean you think I want to listen  to you ?" she demanded. .  "I do," he answered, stepping forward as if to take her in his' arms.  "Mr. Bagley!" she exclaimed, recoiling.  "A,week .ago,"- he   persisted,   "you  , called  me  Fitzroy.    Once', in  an  outburst   of   confidence   you   called   me  Fitz."   ., .,.. '   ,  "You hadn't asked,me to marry you  then," she laughed' mockingly. Then,  edging away toward the .door, she  , waved her. hand at him playfully and  said iteasingly: "Good by,.Mr. Bagley.  I am going upstairs to'Mrs. Ryder. I  will await my father's return in her  room, j (I ,thlnk I shall be safer."  He ran forward to intercept her, but  she was'too quick' for tiiiri. 'The'door  slammed'in'his face, and she, was gone.  Meantime Jefferson had proceeded  upstairs.' passing through long and  luxuriously carpeted corridors - with  paneled frescoed walls and, hung'with  . grand old, tapestries and splendid paintings, until , he came to bis mother's  room. ' He knocked.     _ ,  "Come in!" called out the familiar  voice.,   ,  He entered. Mrs. Ryder was busy  at her' escritoire looking over a mass  of household, accounts.,. .  "Hello, mother! How's father?",he  cried, running up and hugging her in  lils boyish; Impulsive" way. Jefferson  had always been devoted to his mother,  and., while he deplored her weakness in  permitting herself to be so completely  i under the domination of his father,' she  had always found him an affectionate  and loving son. .^ ,  ! Mrs. Ryder sighed "while she looked i  her son over proudly. In her heart shel  Was glad Jefferson. had turned ont as  he &<__..'Her boy certainly would never  be a financier'to be attacked in maga-  _zlnes���and_books. Answering __his_que_a^  tion, she said;     (        .  "Your father is as well as those busy-  bodies in the newspapers will let him  be. He's considerably worried just  now over that new book, -The American Octopus/ How dare they make  him out such' a monster? He's no  worse than other successful men. He's  richer, that's all, and It makes them  jealous. He's out driving now with  Senator Roberts. Kate is somewhere  in the house���in the library, I think.','.  "Yes, I found ber there," replied  Jefferson dryly. "She was, with that  cad, Bagley. : When is father going to  find that fellow out?"  "Oh. Jefferson," protested his mother, "how can you talk like that of Mr.  Bagley? He Is such a perfect gentle-  : man. : His' family connections alone  should: entitle him\ to respect He Is  certainly the best secretary your father ever had. I'm sure I don't know  what we should do ".without him. He  knows everything, that a gentleman  should."  "And a good deal more, 1 wager,"  growled Jefferson. "He wasn't groom  of the backstairs to England's queen  for nothing.". Then changing the topic,  he said suddenly: "Talking about Kate,  mother.,,we. bave^gpt .to reach some  definite understanding. This talk about  my marrying tier, most stop. 1 intend  to fake the matter up with father today."  "Oh, of course, more trouble!" re*  plied his mother In a resigned tone.  She was so' accustomed to having her  wishes thwarted that she was never  surprised at, anything. "We heard.of  your goings on in Paris'.-'"That Miss  Rossmore; was there, yr&a she not?"  "That has got nothing to do with It,"  replied Jefferson warmly. He resented  Shirley's name being dragged Into the  discussion. Then more calmly be went  on: "Now, mother, be reasonable. Listen. I purpose to live my own life. I  have already shown my father that. I  will not'be dictated to and that I,can  earn my own living." u He has no right  to force1 this marriage on me. There  has never been any misunderstanding  on Kate's part.

H. Edmonds spent a couple  of days here and took back a  good string with him.  Harry Robinson, C.P.R. agent,  and Mrs. Robinson leave shortly  for the east on a holiday trip.  E. Cooney of Tranquille, and  W. W. Wood of Kamloops were  visitors in town last week.  Frank  Allen passed   through  Savona   last week  en  route  to  Kamloops.    He was  driving his  -standard bred  stallion,   Admiral  Togo. y  Sam Cawley, M.P.P. for Chil-  liwack, and his. brother-in-law,  E. B. Knight, were in town on  Thursday and paid a visit to some  of the ranches in this  district.  R. F. Wright, who has spent  the winter here expects to leave  this week to resume work on the  Dominion Government telephone  lines in this district. ��� In all probability the construction of the new  through line between Kamloops  . and Vernon will be the first work  to be undertaken.  A party of Dominion Government land surveyors is now at  work in the Three Mile Creek district classifying the land. They  are going right through to the  boundary of the railway belt.  CANFORD  Bertram Adamson left for the  coast last week.  Mrs. A. Smith who has undergone an operation is recovering  rapidly and is expected home in  the course of a week.  Improvements and developments are now the order of the  day. Luscombe, Willow Grange  and Canford Manor are gradually working into shape. Fruit  trees are being planted and  orchards mapped out with an eye  to the production  of the banner  apple.  The clover in an orchard laid  down last season is a pleasure to  look upon, being ready to cut  and will yield three crops easily.  Cherries in this orchard, as big  as marbles grow on first year  trees.  Potatoes, the standard crop at  present, gives splendid promise,  due to a large extent to the unusual generosity of Jupiter Plu-  vius, who as a rule passed us up  and accounts for our Nicolian  skies which place us in the "Sunshine Belt."  Editor Frier, of the London,  Eng., Colonizer, escorted the  party he brought to British  Columbia, to various parts of  the province, and for some reason  overlooked the kingdom of ' 'Old  Sol", whose loyal subjects would  I am sure, one and all have extended the glad hand to Mr.  Frier and his charge.
