The outfits consist of  two -steam shovels, dinky engines,' tracks,' etc.   *  - Janies Macdonnell, the heacLof  the contracting firm will be here  Saturday, night to personally dir-  . rect, the-inauguration of work.

"Men are beginning to come to  Merritt in search of -work; "And  let them come" said one  of the  contractors.    "We can  take all  the men .we 3can .get,   the  more  the merrier, because we want to  get the work done as quickly as  possible.". i -I    ~:    _ 7  The surveying crew in  charge  of Engineer Coley has been busy  laying the finaHines. , The crew  is upwards of twelve strong and  is   making'-'splendid ' progress.

"I am already beginning to  feel the good effects of construction days" remarked one local  merchant. "We are selling all  kinds of blankets'and no less  than twenty tents went out of  our store in one day. I tell you  things will boom here very shortly as they never boomed before,"  and then the merchant sat back  in his chair and taking a lazy  draw at his pipe he looked the  very picture of happiness and  contentment.  In a letter received yesterday  by^ Premier McBride from President and General Manager James  J. Warren;.of the Kettle River  Valley Railway, proof positive is  furnished of th^determination of  this company to' lose no time in  the pressing forward of its large  undertaking.  Mr. Warren writes that a contract has just .been awarded to  the McDonnell and Gwoski Company, of Vancouver, for the  thirty 'mile- ^section-'- connecting.  Merritt with Coldwater Summit..

From every part of the.  district they came, every possible  means of conveyance being.pressed into service. It was the  greatest crowd that ever gathered in Nicola and it was.by far the  greatest day that the citizens of  that town have given 'for -the enjoyment of the outside world.  Financially the celebration was a  success. While the reports are not  yet complete it is known that the  revenue will be more than suffici-.  ent to meet the ordinary expenses  of the day.

It is likely that ultimately the  line will go over the Hope mountains into Vancouver. ��� Some of  the engineers favor that theory  but of course nothing definite in  that regard^ will be. known for  some time. The principal aim  now is id get the thirty .miles up  the Coldwater.  ''Will Princeton get a .branch  line?" was asked of the railway  man. /"Yes, I am more than  confidenti that "Princeton will  havef connection with the Kettle  Valley and inthat way you would  also have a short route from  Merrit;t to the Similkameen."  This morning the surveyors  'Were^moved five miles up the  river and will work from that  .point. j'-The first five mile of the  route is now ready for the con-:  tractors.  In a letter from J. J. Warren,  president of the Kettle Valley  railway the editor of the Nicola  Valley News was informed that  work would be rushed to an early  completion. Construction .has  already started at the Midway  end arid in a few days the diijt.  will fly at Penticton thus giving  construction   at   three    points.  Sports   Largely   Attended  ; Day;Wa��'One of Best"  Enjoyment  Nicola's, big celebration has  passed ^ into history and the  men"who labored so indefatigably  to ensure the success of the. enterprise had every reason to feel  satisfied. It was a gala "day for  thepretty little town at the foot  of the lake. A typical summer's  day���warm"' sunshine to cheer  with just sufficient breeze to re-  lieye_any__discomfort_f rom_ the  heat.  Not a stone had been left unturned. In every department of  the big celebration there was the  same completeness of preparation and as the wheel of events  turned around it revealed a well  organized .enterprise, carefully  planned and efficiently operated.  Early in the morning the Kamloops city band Cached town,  havinjg travelled all night long  overland. {It j was necessary that  the band boys have a little rest  and it was not until early afternoon that music, was available.  But it just went to show what  music =meant >to a> .celebration.  To undertake a day of this character without; a band is a parallel case to sending a ship into a  heavy -sea -without ^ helm.  Considering their fatigued state  the band' played well arid inspired by the strains of music  everything: seemed to go with  that; . deli&htfulv swing thatf is  pleasing not "alone to the men  who are directing affairs but to  the general public. In the morning the field sports were held and  a large gathering of enthusiastic  fans witnessed some #retty good  events.

The  track was in, excellent shape  thanks to the efforts, of John  Blackwell and his able committee.  The weather man smiled his prettiest and there was nothing to mar  the pleasure of the day. In all of  the events there was keen contest  and the afternoon's sport was of  the genuine sort. The Kamloops  city band furnished music during  the afternoon and greatly enlivened proceedings AfteralLwhat  is a celebration without a band.  Music is the very soul of a day of  merrymaking and the presence of  the band at Nicola on Dominion  day was gratifying to all.  It would be impossible to discriminate in the matter of the  various events on the horse racing  propramme because there was a  keen sense of good sportsmanship  surrounding all of them. Suffice  to say that the hurdle race and  the gentleman's half mile open  were the two strong features of a  strong bill.

A tribute to Martin Burrell,  member for Yale Cariboo in the  federal house at Ottawa, -is1 the  text of an article taken from the  current issue of the Canadian  Courier and which is herewith  reproduced.  (Martin Burrell, M. P.| represents Yale-Cariboo���which isa  trifle larger than the whole area  of the Maratime Provinces and  about the size of the British Isles  with Denmark and Holland  thrown in. The kingdom of  Martin Burrell begins at the international bouudary and ends  far beyond the last stake of the  Grand Trunk Pacific survey. It  includes several ranges' of mountains, two river systems and a  whole series of valleys, in the  most fertile, of which Martin  Burrell is the leading fruit-farmer of British Columbia. That  is Kettle Valley, a few miles  from Grand Forks, which is the  town home of Mr. Burrell and  the home of the Granby smelters:  such is the contrast of the Pacific,  from Northern Spies the size of  a man's two fists, pears almost  as big, plums as large as a small  pear and small fruits twice life  size, to the smudge of a smelter.  Hence the complexity of industry  and the complications of labour;  the Asiatic problem���the invasion of the brown man and the  yellow man.  What wonder that Martin Burrell, who for ten years has been  hiring labour in Kettle Valley  should, be considered in the  House of Commons as one of the  most-expert authorities on labour  protection in Canada? That; is  why Mr. Burrell has got reputation as an orator; in cities of the  east and down in the club centres  of the United States; not because  he has grown any flowers of  rhetoric but because always he  had; somewhat to say in , the  shape of a real message on the  labour, question, and because he  is at heart a cultured, English  gentleman who for-a good many  years was accustomed to stand  before audiences and speak his  mind about fruit. .. ,  Mr. Burrell was born in England; educated at St. John's College, Hurst-Pier-Point; was in  Gloucester bank till he .was  twenty-five years of age when  he came to Canada, which was  in 1883. Two years he studied  horticulture in the Niagara Pen-  Grand Forks since and seven  well-kept licensed hotels replace  the.twentyrfive saloons and joints  that once ruled the place. Iii  1904 he. was chosen to contest  Yale-Cariboo.  Since taking his seat in the  House _. he has gained golden  opinions both as a parliamentary  debater and as a leader amongst  his party. He has made no enemies, in the house or out, and  has frequently taken the floor at  times of tension and his speeches  though uncompromising in principle, have had noticeable effect  in pacifying the most bitter elements in the party warfare.'  Friends point to Martin Burrell  as one likely to hold high position  when his party gains power and  one who through experience as  well as ability is well fitted to  represent his province and his  country in any capacity . for  which he may be chosen.

There he had charge of the Ontario Government, experimental  station and began his career as  a lecturer on fruit topics���which  was a very good way to cultivate  lucidity of speech and a convincing style of argument. In 1900  he went to Kettle Valley where  he established the Riverdale Nurseries, since sold to a local company there.  Mr. Burrell's first public office  was as Mayor of   Grand Forks  and his winning of this position  was one that marked him  for  future honours.   The  town  had  always run  "open" in western  mining style; roulette tables and  joints   of all  descriptions were  allowed to operate openly Sunday  and    Monday,   day and night.  Mr. .Burrell opened his campaign  as   definitely   opposed to these  conditions; he was met by the  influences he differed with and  their   man; putinto the  field.  Few knowing Grand Forks expected to jsee- him win; but he  did, in the   most stirring   campaign a the;; pity, ever, saw.   The  '.'lid was put. on" and has   remained on ever since with different   prominent   citizens taking  turns at sitting on it to. keep it  down.   No  roulette tables,   no  red-light   district,   no    Sunday  saloons have    been   known�� in  A new hotel is to be erected at  Quesnel by Mr. Kepner.  H. Y. Parker has been appointed city engineer for Cranbrook.  Citizens of Mission are agitating for the establishment of a  beet sugar factory at their town.  While uncoupling a train at  Passburg Stephen Harik a Slavonian, fell between the cars and  was instantly killed.  At Fernie, C. J. Digby was  last week presented with a veteran's jewel on attaining twenty-  five years as an Oddfellow.  A young Slav named Muntilkak  met his death in the Great Northern tunnel near Morrissey  through the accidental discharge  of a- blast.  As a result of the application  of plague virus to the rats which  infest Prince Rupert the rodents  are appreciably diminishing in  numbers.,  *" ** O*  The new pontoon ferry at Quesnel is now in operation and is of  great assistance to settlers and  ranchers in the district. The  early construction of a bridge is  still hoped for.  A hospital board of five was  elected last week at Quesnel, and  over $1200 has been collected locally for the hospital. With the  assistance of ths government  grant it-is believed construction  will be commenced this year.  E. R. L. Jones, publisher of  the Big Canyon Weekly, and who  is largely interested in mining, is  preparing   to   open._a . mining  broker's office at Prince Rupert.  He will make the mines up the  river and at Alice Arm and surrounding country his specialty.  While Coroner A. E. Bleasdell,  Undertaker W. Scott and constable were hastening on a  speeder to the scene of the death  of a. Slavish workman in the  Great Northern tunnel near  Morrissey they had a narrow escape from being killed by an  approaching train as they entered the tunnel. They jumped  for their lives just before the  engine struck the speeder.  - A unique wedding, was performed at Fernie last week',  when Mrs. Edna Barrett, who  was confined to the isolation hospital with an infectious disease,  was wedded to Mr. Frank E.  Grace. The ceremony was performed in the hospital, the couple  being separated by a stout man-  ila rope.

Early Days in Nicola Valley  By George   Murray,  Nicola.  Man's capacity for adaptation  comes to the relief of the youthful with the  change of habitation.     They   can adjust themselves to new and altered conditions.    New companionship is  formed, and  the former if not  forgotten     ceases    to    awaken  poignant   regret.     Those   of   a  ripe old age do not form close  relationship, nor readily conform  to   circumstances   and   customs  widely different from those of  their past experience.    They are  tenacious of   the past, because  impressions were more vivid. Ere  the approach of old age most of  the web of life has been woven,  and it is hard to change the pattern.    The lament of the solitary,  is   pathetic,   and   intensely   so  when it comes from the heart of  the  aged.     The   aged   parents  could tell of highly  prized  advantages from which  they were  severed in their new home; but  also rejoiced in  privileges conferred   by   the   change.     They  were    surrounded     with   their  children     and      grandchildren.  Their wants and  comforts were  tenderly ministered unto by their  sons who were mainly instrumental in inducing   them to leave  their home of many years in the  east and settle in the far west.  Then  too religious observances  of which they were bereft for a  time were being supplied.     The  Methodist     and ,    Presbyterian  churches had sent Missionaries  into the field, public worship was  held   and   Christian   ordinances  were observed.     Life was becoming more homelike and the  outlook more hopeful. , Cheerfulness and contentment marked  the sunset of their lives.    Mr.  Moore   was   a man  of sterling  character of quiet and unobtrusive manner, reserved in speech,  but strong in action.     When it  was a matter of right or wrong  he would quietly but unflinchingly,   maintain the right.     Calm  and fair judgements marked his  decisions.  Mrs. Moore was a  woman of  generous impulses and kind disposition. Her sympathy went out  in large measure to those  in affliction of any kind. Her counsel  to her own family was always  wisely given."     Mr.   Moore was  an   elder  in   the   Presbyterian  church in the east and was called  to the same office in  connection  with   that   church   in    Nicola.  While specially attached to his  own   church,, he   saw  good   in  others.   The church to which he  =belong6d=has=no=firmer=and=more  ardent supporters among its adherents than its Irish  members.  During an intimacy and friendship of sixteen years when I was  frequently in his home,  I never  heard him utter an unkind or uncharitable word of anyone,  and  the same could be said of his  amiable consort.    Goodwill to all  prevailed in their home.     Mrs.  Moore pre-deceased her husband  by several years.    The great last  change came  to her not as an  unexpected visitant.     She knew  the     end      was     approaching  and    resignedly    awaited    the  coming of her Redeemer.   After  her death the home  was  closed  and the bereaved husband resided  with his son   Samuel, who  afforded a noble instance of filial  affection.   Mr.    Moore attained  to an age which   few   are permitted to see.    He was a man  of wonderful vigor and activity.  When conscious of failing strength, Paul-like he longed to   depart and to be with Christ. With  child-like trust he resigned himself passively into the   arms of  tho Saviour   persuaded that in  life or death all would  be   well.  After he had entered   five days  on his ninety fifth year,   death  came to him, hot as   the stern  messenger, but as the Gracious  Master's servant summoning him  to the   Heavenly   Home,   to  be  forever with the Lord.  As early  as 1875 the   Moore  brothers   were   in   comfortable  circumstances   and  among   the  progressive ranchers of the interior.      Stock-raisers   at   that  time were not concerned at the  approach of winter.    The ranges  were clothed with abundance of  nutritous grass.     Stock grazed  on the hills during the winter  and came through in  good  condition.    There were  no pretentious residences in the interior in  those days; but there were cheerful homes.   And the home of the  Moore brothers  betokened comfort  and   happiness.       Mr.   S.  Moore   brought   a   young   wife  from the east, whose gentle and  kindly   manner   diffused    good  cheer.    The  bright side of affairs and circumstances attracted  her.'     Where    others   fastened  upon difficulties and trials it was  her way to look upon hopeful  aspects.   Contented herself, contentment   prevaded  her   home,  what a painful and awful void  came to that home and into the  hearts of her husband and dear  little ones, when  death entered  that family circle,  and laid his  icy hand upon the youthful wife  and   mother.     What  depth   of  sorrow awaited those to whom  the world   promised so  much?  Well is it   that   the   future   is  mercifully   veiled   from   mortal  vision.     On   the   thirteenth   of  October 1881, Mrs.  Moore slept  the sleep of death leaving husband   and   children   and   other  loved ones to mourn  their irre-  perable  loss.     The   motherless  babe survived but a few days^i  In quick succession followed the  death of John P.  Moore which  occured on the eight of the following month, caused by a hurt  in the stable when attending to  a horse.   Within a space of less  than a month what a melancholy  change was wrought by death in  the   Moore   settlement.       Two  homes were left desolate.     And  the sad bereavements weighed  heavily upon the husband, father  and parents, brothers and sisters.  Samuel and John   Moore  were  close companions through their  long pilgrimages,  struggles and  successes.       Not   until    death  wrought  separation   were they  divided.    Both were avowed abstainers and   were   among  the  most   liberal supporters of the  Presbyterian church, during my  first term of service in  the mission field of B. C. under the aus-  piees=of=the-Ghurch=of=Scotlandr  For nearly three years while in  tne Valley I made my home with  Mr. S.  Moore,  where I experienced the utmost and unbroken  kindness which I gladly acknow-  lege   with    deepest    gratitude.  Two, brothers, Joseph and Benjamin still survive.    Having disposed of their interests in Nicola  they are no longer residents of  the Valley.  Not without a tinge of regret  can the older residents pass by  the home where the Moore families dwelt, and realize that they  have all gone from our midst.  But change which is a law of the  universe and of human conditions  is characteristic of nations, communities and families. .;'���'������ One  generation goeth and another  cometh.

THE'PHONE SERVICE  Now that the telephone exchange for Merritt is definitely  assured it is necessary that in its  installation that: certain matters  be taken into consideration.  In the first place it is absolutely essential that the exchange be  placed in a building independent  of any business concern for reasons that must at once be obvious. As agent for the long distance service since its coming to  Merritt G. B. Armstrong has given splendid satisfaction and his  treatment of the public has ever  been in accordance with the best  principals necessary to the  service.  But with the installation of an  exchange much of the inconvenience that has been experienced  particularly during the past few  months will be removed. There  will be upwards of fifty subscib-  ers at the outset and this number will be substantially increased during the ensuing few  weeks. It will be possible under  the new order of things to secure a longer service. It will  be possible to secure a better  trunk service and the maintenance . of a permanent lineman  here will have a good influence  in this respect. On every hand  the exchange will be welcomed  and the department should give  every consideration to the best  wishes of a long suffering public. .  bv the good that must inevitably  follow. There are laws that we  require today but we cannot enact them because we are in an  unorganized state and there are  a score of reasons why Merritt  should go on the map as an. incorporated city. It is a wise  policy to incorporate as a city  because it provides for the future  in a broader and safer senee.  Time and again have we urged  the necessity of an organized  fruit exhibit from the Nicola  valley at the large fairs to be  held on the coast during the ensuing few months. Vancouver,  Westminster and Victoria, not  forgetting the big national apple  show which'opens on October 31.  will give the fruit growers an  opportunity that they should improve. No better publicity work  could be accomplished than the  placing of a good representative  exhibit in some of these larger  exhibitions. '  The question of Asiatic exclusion will not down. Records  show, that the influx of yellow  men is about as great now as it  ever was. The government must  immediately adopt some drastic  measures that will secure the  position of the white laboring  man in this province. The situation js becoming serious, there  are but three courses open to the  government. Either the head  tax must be raised so as to exclude all but the highest type or  the incoming Chinamen must be  required to pass a test based on  the lines of the Natal Act. In  the event of either of these  courses being;, unsatisfactory total exclusion must be adopted.  It is mature time that something  was done for the present flood  of cheap labor not only joepar-  dizes the position of the laboring  man but undermines the labor  market as a whole.  It is generally conceded by  many that the curtain has been  rung down on pugilism in United  States with the big Johnston-  Jeffries mill on Monday last.  Nevada is about the only state  that will permit a prize fight  within its confines and a strong  public feeling is already becoming  active in that state which may  result in its .permanent elimination. It is nothing more or less  than brutality of the most aggravated form and it is almost  inexplicable that a civilized community-such as is found in Nevada will permit it. Scientific  boxing-iis commendable but there  is a wide difference between boxing a$d avjjj'ize fight. One is  science. 'The other is mostly  brute 'force. -,-  Now that the future of Merritt  is fully assured the citizens  should at once take up the matter  of incorporation. There in much  to be gained in incorporation and  while for a young town it may  have certain disadvantages still  these are more than outweighed  Final Plans  For theC. N.R.  Company's Scheme Receives En-  dorsation by the Victoria  Government.  Victoria, July- 8.���Detailed  plans of the line of the Canadian  Northern Pacific Railway through  the mainland of British Columbia from the lower Fraser terminals at Port Nann to a midway  point on Moose Lake (beyond  and eastward of Tete Jaune  Cache) have been filed with the  chief commissioner of lands, and  formerly accepted and signed  by Hon. Price Ellison. The line  is now authoritatively delineated  insofar as the mainland sections  are concerned with the exception  of one short section lying between the headwaters of the  North Thompson and the McLennan River and such minor  deviations as may hereafter be  made will not vary from, these  filed plans by more than a mile  at the maximum.;  The first section plan covers  the location decided upon from  mile 0 to mile 37, otherwise from  Yale, south along the Fraser  river to Chilliwack. The second  section extends from Chilliwack  to New Westminster bridge and  is in entire accordance with public expectations. From Kamloops the line follows the North  Thompson 156 miles to its headwaters. '  The easterly section (yet to be  connected by the awaited plan  for the line from the North  Thompson to McLennan River)  extends from the headwaters of  the field, one on the northern  shore of Cowichan Lake, and the  other more southerly. It is expected that their reports will be  made, and the route decided before mid-July. The letting of  contracts will follow immediately.   o  The Kettle  Valley Railway  Continued from page one.  section and two weeks ago construction was initiated on the  Midway end. The company is  also doing some construction  work up the North Fork of the  Kettle river, and a beginning of  work at Penticton is ordered as  soon as the municipality adopts  the bylaw confirming and ratifying the agreement reached by  the local authorities with the  company as to the provision of  terminal facilities at Penticton.  Mr. Warren is now returning  to Toronto for a special meeting  of the company to be held at the  end of this week, but will,be  back in British Columbia by the  24th instant, and will again visit  Victoria shortly thereafter.  >o  Canoe River northerly to about  ten miles south of Tete Jaune  Cache, at the junction of the McLennan with the Fraser, and  there makes a sharp bend, following easterly. This section  is 33.6 miles in length.  In their entirety the plans filed  cover upwards. of 400 miles of  construction, and only omit about  thirty miles of the complete  mainland line.  On Vancouver Island two reconnaissance parties are now in  The Vancouver World says: Railroad  building in British Columbia is becoming contagious. The board of valuators,  Mr. R. F. Green, of Victoria; Mr. L.M.  Rice, of Seattle; and Judge Forih, of  Nelson, who were recently appointed to  apprise the price that the Kettle Valley  Railway Company was to pay for the  old grade of the Midway and Vernon  Railway, have finished their inspection  and made their report. When the Midway and Vernon was first projected it  was for the purpose of extending the  line into the Kootenay country in order  to reach that section of the province by  a much shorter route than can now be  done. The objects of the first promoters did not prove successful, however, and several contractors are known  to have lost considerable money in the  effort, as well as the projectors.    ,y ..  The Kettle Valley Railway Company,  which has come into possession of the  right-of-way, have announced .that  there will be no further delay in pushing the line through, arid in affirmation  of the assertion have awarded the contract for the first thirty miles o^the  grading to Macdonald and' Gzbwski of  this city, who have issued orders to  have their construction material shipped to the scene of action at once, and  the work will be started next Monday  at the latest.  Work will be started at Merritt.  which at present is the lower end of the  line, Mr. Gzowski stated this morning,  and he expects to complete ten miles of  the grade by the first of the year np  the Coldwater valley.  At the present time tha Kootenay  country can be reached only by shipping around by the way of Spokane,  Washington, or by the Canadian Pacific  to Okanagan, where a transfer has to  be made to vessels plying on Okanagan  lake, both routes being extremely  roundabout. With the completion of  the new line the Kootenay mines can be  reached by Vancouver merchants at  much less cost for transportation to  customers in that section of the pro-  vince than is possible to   do   now,  as it  cut the~distance over 200 milesT  This will not only give the Vancouver  merchants an advantage in the control  of the trade in that territory, but will  also bring to this port an immense  amount of ores to be worked by the  new smelter to be erected here in the  next twelve months by an English  syndicate which has secured the site for  the plant and all necessary ore lands to  keep it in operation for several years.  The old grade of the Vernon and  Midway will be used from Midway to  Rock Creek, a distance of about ten  miles. The agreement with the provincial government calls for the commencement of the work by July 10.  The female house fly lays from 120 to 150 eggs at a time, and these mature in two  weeks.

George Porteous left Wednesday morning for the coast and  will be away for some little time.  Haying is becoming quite general through the valley and the  crop promises to be a fairly large  one.   '  Thomas Wilson, Dominion en-  tomolgist, came into the valley  on Tuesday and will remain over!  a few days.  Dr. H. A. Harvey arrived from  Kamloops on Tuesday night's  train and will stay for a week or  ten days in Merritt to attend to  local dental-work.  James Pooley brought down a  drove of 25 sheep for the Nicola  Valley meat market on Wednesday ( morning. They were a  pretty fine looking lot of mutton.  Al.

The plant for the mine is already  on the road from the coast.  C. R. Thomas of the Vancouver  Auto & Cycle Co., arrived Tn  Merritt on Thursday coming  overland from Kamloops and  bringing with him Dr. G. H.  Tutill's new Ford runnabout.  Jos. Graham, the popular  manager of the Coal Hill Syndicate, has furnished convincing  evidence of the productiveness  of the soil on the high bench  lands.    Early this spring he put  in a garden on his property on  Coal hill and today he is enjoying the finest yield of vegetables  that can be found anywhere in  the district.  The offices for the staff of the  Kettle Valley railway company  on the upper floor of the Eastwood block are being fitted up  this week. This will be the  base for the engineers and the  necessary furnishings are now  being installed. It is understood that when construction is  in full swing that the company  will carry a pretty large office  staff.  Prof. McNaughton of the North  Vancouver schools, has been  through the Nicola valley for the  past week or so in search of land  for settlement. He has finally  located in the Mammet Lake  district and will make immediate  arrangements to move his family  up for the summer. It is principally for a summer home that  he desires the land.  William Hargraves and Capt.  Argall of Kamloops were in the  valley last week in company with  a representative of the International Harvester Co. They came  over from Kamloops in Mr.  Hargraves' car. Near Canford  they experienced difficulty losing  the steering wheel in the river  but it was happily located after  a long search with grappling  irons and the party proceeded on  its way after the necessary repairs to the car were made.

The little fellow was playing  around a pile of lumber near his  home in Fairview when the lumber fell crushing him to death.  Mrs. Beasley is grief stricken  and has been taken to her home  i n the east. It is on 1 y a few  weeks ago that Mr. and Mrs.  Beasley and their son were visiting friends through this district.  A large contingent will accom-  _pany_^the^ocal__=Orangemen===_-to-  Kamloops on Tuesdaiy next. A  special train will leave Nicola at  4 o'clock in the morning and  Merritt at 4.30 reaching Kamloops shortly before 10 o'clock  in good time for the celebration.  It promises to be one of the  greatest of the many Glorious  Twelfths that have been given  in the upper country for years.  Lodges from all parts of the  Okanagan as well as Revelstoke  and other mainline points will  be in attendance to do honor to  the day that marks the 220th  anniversary of the Battle of the  Boyne.  D. S. Wilson of Los Angeles,  Cal., brother of William and  Maxwell Wilson, arrived on last  week's Nicola stage. This is the  first time the three brothers have  been together in twenty-two  years. The Wi lson brothers hail  from the far famed county of  Bruce, Ont., where their father,  who was one of its pioneers, still  resides. Mr. Wilson has been  visiting friends on the coast and  in the Fraser valley. ,; He much  prefers the upper country with  its dry climate and unlimited resources, and predicts a prosperous future for Princeton. He  will return here with his family  after a visit Jo the prairie prov-  nces.���Princeton Star.  W. J. Clements has disposed of  his interests in the Penticton  Press and has left the district.  A Summerland despatch states  that T. J. Smith has completed  the purchase of the old cannery in  that town and has ordered a plant  for immediate installation so as to  be ready to handle this year's  crop.  A staff of twenty men is now  retained by the Pacific Coast Collieries Co. Development work is  being largely promoted and the  mines will shortly be in a position  to ship continuously. A part of  the new plant is already in operation.  A large number of laborers  have already arrived in Merritt in  anticipation of work on the construction of the Kettle Valley  railway. There should be room  for all, however, as the contractors have sent out word that they  will take all the men they can get.  A good joke on Constable Walter Clark is going the rounds this  week. It seems that the constable went down with William Hargraves and others to locate the  Indians who had thrown the  steering wheel of Mr. Hargraves'  car into the river. All day long  they dragged the river but without success. Finally a negro  came along and learning the  plight of the party volunteered to  get the wheel. One of the party  wagered twenty dollars that he  couldn't find it but after diving  into the water five times the black  came up with the wheel on his  head. With the twenty dollars  snugly tucked away in his jeans  the Ethiopian was making away  when the constable hailed him.  "Betting on the fight at all?" w,as  the query. "No sir, I aint got  any money to lose." The constable laughed.     "Well I have  ten here to wager on Jeffries."  The negro's face was illuminated  with a smile. "I'll take it," and  he did take it and won out.  BRITISH COLUMBIA HORSE  Squadron orders No. 9 by Major Flick commanding "D"  squadron B.C. Horse.  Merritt, July 8.

GILMORE HILL ROAD  A road gang in charge of foreman Macdonald will resume work  on the new road around the foot  of Gilmore hill this week. The  crew left Kamloops Monday  morning and on the way out will  effect necessary repairs to the  road. They are bringing the  equipment with them. Superintendent White has had considerable difficulty securing men and  this has in a measure retarded  work on the new road.  During the past four years the  growth of Vancouver has been  more rapid than during the pre-  ceeding four years as the following figures will show : In 3903  the population according to the  directory was 24,342; in 1906,  50,379, and at the present- time,  110,068; which is more ��� than  double what it was four years  ago.  the Sporting World  THE LYTTON SPORTS  The Dominion day celebration  at Lytton was attended by the  fullest measure of success. It  was a beautiful day and the attendance was large and fully representative of all points through  the district. The programme of  sports was an exceptionally good  one for a town the size of Lytton  and the different events were  keenly contested. Laurie Baillie  won the majority of prizes carrying off the silver cup, gold and  bronze medals and cash prizes.  He ran the 100 yards open in  10 1-8 seconds.  to reach the coast about Saturday. The big games for the  Minto cup have been called for  July' 16 and 23 and several exhibition games have also been  arranged.  Things are rather quiet in  tennis circles through the valley  just now. Nicola is due to visit  Merritt and play a return  match but just when this will  be fixed is not known. There is  no reason why the fans should  not get busy and have a real good  season with the racquet.  GATE RECEIPTS WERE $320,000  When the last bit of money in  the house is counted, it is believed that Johnson's victory  over Jeffries will only net him  $3,600 more than the defeated  white man will receive. It is  believed that Rickard and Glea-  son will split approximately $130, -  000 in addition to their interests  in the moving pictures.  It is estimated that the gate  receipts were $320,000. The  purse was $101,000, with $10,000  bonus for each fighter. The cost  of the arena approximated $30,-  000. The estimated attendance  was 18,500.  Johnson's share of the purse  will be about $60,600; his bonus  $10,000 and his picture rights  $50,000, making a total of $120,-  600.  Jeffries is to receive $40,400; a  bonus of $10,000 and $66,666 for  his motion picture rights, or a  total of $117,066.  -Kamloops     ball    team   went  Nicola valley will send a football  team to Kamloops oh Tuesday  next to play theKamloops team.

"Yon are going away?" exclaimed
Shirley. s..rpri-ed.

my father yesterday ■about one thing
and another. He and I don't chin well

discouraged me. All the wealth in the

methods: I'm ashamed of the role my

miserable affair.' I can't express what
i feel about it. But what are you going to do?" he asked. "These surroundings are not for you"— He
looked around at the cheap furnishings
which be could see through the open
window, aud his face showed real concern.
"I shall teach or write, or go out as
governess," replied Shirley, with a
tinge of bitterness. Then smiling sadly she added: "Poverty is easy. It is
unmerited disgrace which is hard."
The young man drew his chair closer
and took hold of the hand that lay in
her lap.   She made no resistance.
"Shirley;" he said, "do you remember that talk we had on the ship? / I
asked you to be my wife. You led me
to believe that you were not indifferent
to me. I ask you again to marry me.
Give me the right to take care of you

richest man, but I don't want his
money. I have earned a competence
of my own—enough to live on comfortably. We will go away where you
and your father and mother will make
their home with us. Do not let the
sins of the fathers embitter the lives
of the children."
"Mine has not sinned," said Shirley
"I wish I could say the same of
mine," replied Jefferson. "It is because the clouds are dark about you
that I want to come into your life to
comfort you."
The girl shook her head. .
"No. Jefferson, the circumstances
make such a marriage impossible.
Your family and everybody else would
say that I had inveigled you into it. It
is even more impossible now than I
thought it was when I spoke to you on
the ship."
Emotion stopped her utterance, and
she buried her face in her bands,
weeping silently.
"Shirley,"    said    Jefferson   tenderly,
"you are wrong.   If you  will not say
'Yes' now,  I  shall go away as  I told
my father I would, and one day I shall
come  back and  then   if you  are  still

watched him go out of the gate and
down the road until she could see his

was arranged that Stott should escort

started for the train a letter arrived
for Sliirley. Like the first one. it had

read as follows:

HE Hon. Fitzroy Bagley had
every reason to feel satisQed
with himself. His affaire de
cocur with the senator's
daughter was progressing more smoothly than ever, and nothing now seemed
likely to interfere with his carefully
prepared plans to capture an American
heiress. The interview with Kate Roberts in the library, so awkwardly disturbed by Jefferson's unexpected intrti
siou. had been followed by other interviews more secret and more successful,
and the plausible secretary had contrived so well to persuade the girl that
he really thought the world of her and
that a brilliant future awaited her.as=

he found her in a mood to refuse him
nothing.        x.- ■;.,'._■■■':■.■;.
Bagley urged immediate marriage
He insinuated that Jefferson had treated her shamefully and that she owed it
to herself to show the world that therr-
were other men as good as the one'.'who
had jilted her. He argued that in view
of the senator being bent on the'match
with Ryder's son it would be worse
than useless for him (BagleyI to make
formal application for her hand, so,
as he explained, the only thing which
remained was a runaway marriage.
Confronted with the fait accompli.:
■'Papa-Roberts' would bow to the inev-;
itable. They could get married quietly
in town, go a way for a short trip.' and
when the senator had got over his first
disappointment they would be welcomed back with open arms.
Kate listened willingly enough to this
specious reasoning. In her heart she
was piqued at Jefferson's indiffereuce.
and she was foolish enough to really
believe that this marriage with a British nobleman, twice removed, would
be in the nature of a triumph over
',."." Besides, this project of an elopement appealed strangely to her frivolous imagination: it put her in the same
class as all her favorite novel heroines.
And it would be capital fun.
Meantime Senator Roberts, in blissful ignorance of this little plot against
his domestic peace, was growing im
patient, and he approached his friend
son Jefferson. The young man. he
said, had been back from Europe some
time. He Insisted on knowing what
his attitude was toward his daughter
If tbey were engaged to be married
bc said there should be a public an-
noencement of the fact. It was unfaii
to him and a slight to his daughter to
let matters hang tire In this unsatisfactory way. and he hinted that both hiui-
s«.Tf and his daughter might demand
their passports from the Ryder mansion unless some explanation were
Ryder was in a quandary. He had
no wish to quarrel with his useful
Washington ally. He recognized the
reasonableness of his complaint. Yet
what could be do? Much as he himself desired the marriage, his son was
obstinate and showed little inclination
to settle down. He even hinted at attractions In another quarter. He did
not tell the senator of bis recent interview with his son when the latter,
made It very plain that the marriage
could never take place. Ryder senior
had his own reasons for wishing to
temporize. It was quite possible that
Jefferson might change his mind and
abandon his idea of going abroad, and
he suggested to the senator that perhaps if he, the senator, made the engagement public through the newspapers It might have the salutary effect
of forcing bis son's hand.
So a few mornings later there appeared among the society notes In several of the New York papers this paragraph:
The engagement Is announced of Miss
Katherine Roberts, only daughter of Senator Roberts of Wisconsin, to Jefferson
Ryder, son of Mr. John Burkett Ryder.
Two. persons in New York happened
to see the item about the same time,
and both were equally interested, although It affected them in a different
manner. One was Shirley Rossmore,
who had chanced to oleic uo the news
paper  at  the   breaiifast  table  iu . uer
boarding house.
"So soon?" she murmured to herself.
Well, why not?    She could not blame
Jefferson.    He had often spoken to her
of this match arranged by  his father,
and   tbey   had   laughed   over   it   as   a
typical  marriage of con ven ieuce modeled after the continental pattern.  Jefferson, she knew, had never cared for
the girl, nor taken the affair seriously.
Some  powerful   intiueuces   must  have
been at  work to make him surrender
so easily.    Here again she  recognized
the masterly hand of Ryder senior, and
more than ever she was eager to meet
this extraordinary   man   and   measure
her strength with  his.    Her mind, indeed, was too full of her father's troubles to grieve over her own  however
much she might have been inclined to
do so under other circumstances, and
all that day she did  her best to banish the paragraph from her thoughts
More  than  a   week   had   passed  since
she  left .Massapequa  and.   what  with
corresponding  with  financiers,  calling
ou   editors 'and  publishers,   every   moment of her time had been kept busy.
She had found a quiet and reasonable
priced boarding house off Washington
square, and here Stott had called several times to see her.    Her correspondence with Mr. Ryder had now reached
a phase when it was impossible to invent any further excuses for delaying
the interview asked, for.    As she had
foreseen, a day or two after her arrival   in   town   she  had   received  a   note
from Mrs. Ryder asking her to do her
the honor to call and see her. and Shirley,  after  waiting  another two days,
had replied making an appointment for
the following day at 3 o'clock.    This
was the same day on which the paragraph   concerning   the   Ryder-Roberts
engagement   appeared   in   the   society
chronicles of the nietropolis.
Directly after the meager meal which
in New York boarding houses is dignified by the name of luncheon Shirley
proceeded to get ready for this portentous visit to the Ryder mansion. She
was anxious to make a favorable impression on the financier, so she took
some pains with her personal appearance;
In about twenty minutes the car
stopped at the corner of Seventy-fourth
street. Shirley descended and with a
quickened pulse walked toward the
Ryder mansiou. which she knew well
by sight.
* "  '   *        ' • •■   ■" '*   'V ■ *■■' ■    »'-. -     «
There was one other person in New
York who that same morning had read
the newspaper item regarding the Ryder-Roberts betrothal, and he did not
take, the matter so calmly as Shirley
had done. On the contrary, it bad the
effect of putting him into a violent
rage. This was Jefferson. He was
working in his studio when he read it,
and live minutes later he was tearing
uptown to seek" the author of it He
understood its object,-of course. -They
wanted to force his hand, to shame
:him into this marriage,' to so entangle
him with the girl that no other alternative would be possible to an honorable man. It was a despicable trick,
and he had no doubt that his father
was at the back of it So his mind
now was fully made up. He would go
awaj- at once where they could not
make his life a burden with this odious
marriage which was fast becoming a
nightmare to him. He would close up
his studio and leave immediately for
Europe. He would show his father
once for all that he was a man and expected to be treated as one.
On arriving home the first person he
saw was the ubiquitous Mr. Bagley,
who stood at the top of the first staircase giving some letters to the butler.
Jefferson* cornered hi a. at once, holding out the newspaper containing the
offending paragraph.
"Say, Bagley," he cried, "what does
this mean? Is this any of your doing?"
The English secretary gave his employer's son a haughty stare and then,
without deigning to reply or even to
=glance_at_the__newspaper. continued hls_
instructions to the servant:
"Here,  Jorkins.   get  stamps   for  all
these letters and see they are mailed at
once.  They are very important"
"Very good, sir."
The man took the letters and disappeared, while Jefferson, impatient repeated his question:
"My doing?" sneered Mr. Bagley.
"Really. Jefferson, you go too far. Do
you suppose for one instant that I
would condescend to trouble myself
witli your affairs?"
Jefferson was In no mood to put up
with insolence from any one, especially from a man whom he heartily despised, so, advancing menacingly, he
'I mean—were you In the discharge
of your menial-like duties Instructed
by my father to send that paragraph
to the newspapers regarding my alleged betrothal to Miss Roberts? Yes or
The man winced and made a step
backward. There was a gleam in the
Ryder eye which he knew by experience, boded no good.
"Really. Jefferson," he said In a more
conciliatory tone, "I know absolutely
nothing about the paragraph. This Is
the first I hear ot it. Why not ask
your father?"
"I will." replied Jefferson grimly.
He was turning to go in the direction of the library when Bagley stop-

"After the" eleventh round it was  hopeless, i; It was the greatest demonstration the ring has ever seen "of the  failureof a fighter to "come back"  after years of retirement. " The youth  and science of the black man made Jeff  look like a green man. The great Jeffries was! like a log. The.reviled Johnson was like a black "panther beautiful  in his alertness and defensive attack.  Jeffries'fought by inches, it seemed,  showing his gameness and his great  fighting heart in every -round, but he  was only a shell of his old self. The  old power to" take* a" terrible beating and  bear it until he landed the knockout  blow was'jgone. -jiAfter the third round  Johnson, treated .his['.opponent almost\aa  a joke. He smileii and blocked playfully, warding off the bearlike rushes  of Jeffries with a marvellous science.  The fight was on the square. Of the  latter there was no.doubtafter the first  round. 'There'was no'evidence' of the  alleged yellow streak in Johnson. He  proved himself" so absolutely Jeffries'  master that experts such as W.

Jeffries had lost the power of defence,'^  a series of right and left uppercuts delivered at will sent him staggering to  the ropes.

The fifteenth round started with a  clinch after Jeffries had failed to land  on the body. Johnson then, tore loose  and before the spectators were prepared for the finish he had sent Jeffries  down with lightning-like left/and right  blows to the jaw.
