 Vol. 1, No   28  MERRITT, B. C. AUGUST 26, 1910  Price 5 Cents  President Warren Declares That Kettle  Valley Will Mean Much to Local District  Railroad Will Secure  Coal  Supply  Here���Interchange of  Freight With C. P. R. But no Union Station  That a large share of the east- j visit the Aspen Grove district be-  bound freight will pass through  Merritt and that there is a strong  probability of the shops and  divisional base of the Kettle  Valley being located here were  amongst the more .interesting  announcements of James J. Warren, president of the Kettle Valley, who is now spending a few  days looking over the local situation. Mr. Warren came in  Wednesday night and will be  . here until early next week.  "If we go by the Hope route  through to Ruby creek it is likely  that the divisional base will be  placed at the summit. If we  don't go that way the shops and  divisional base will certainly come  to Merritt. in any event Merritt will always be on the mainline and all the eastbound freight  will pass through here. That is  easjly discernable because by the  Hope route the best grade you  carfget is 2.02, while by Spences  Bridge it is less than one per  cent." .,-���"���'.  "You must remember that our  line will end at Merritt, and we  will, only have freight and pas-  ...senger interchange with the C.  P^R." at this point as.well as;  .-.Midway and Ruby Creek. ��� If-jve.'  . get the line over the Hope it will  mean a through route from^the  Boundary and  with the Crow's  Nest will mean a second transcontinental."  "There will likely not be a  townsite for the first thirty miles  because there is nothing to  justify, it, but there is almost a  certainty to be a town of some  sort' in the vicinity of the summit.  ' 'Will you provide a spur for  the mines at Aspen Grove?" was  ask^jjL  "Well if there is really anything to go after there we will  mos^assuredly go after it" was  the interesting reply.  ___The_construction_camps_up_the_  Coldwater have been   consider  ably shifted during the past few  days. The contract tor the first  seventeen miles has been awarded to Murchison and McMillan of  Vancouver and the remainder of  the contract has been sublet to  other parties, the most import-  part going to Lungo and Macdonald.  The steam shovel camp is being organized and the arrival of  the dinkies in the course of a  couple of days will mean immediate operations there. Once  the steam shovels are at work on  the grade it will only be a matter  of a few weeks before track laying Will be possible.  President Warren made the interesting announcement that no  time I would be lost in the construction of the line because they  wers desirous of having; it in  operation inside of two years.  Asked as to details, of operation  such as the number of trains he  said that the company was too  busy building the road to bother  about subsequent details. .' 'But  believe me we will have the very  best of rolling stock and will give  a good service in every department."  s Mr. Warren in company with  Mr. McCulloch will go up the  Coldwater ;valley and will  also  fore returning. "The route you  have mapped out in the paper is  correct. We will go through  Railway Pass and double back to  Aspen Grove and across country  to Penticton."  In answer to a question as to  fuel fupply the president stated  that the company would get its  coal at Middlesboro. "Coaling  is certainly the backbone of your  town. You have a pretty country, one of the finest I ever saw,  but without the coal mines you  would have practically no town  at all. That is what will build  your town and bring the railroads  here more than anything else."  The Kettle Valley railway railway will go over the Hope mountains  to Ruby creek and   there  connect with the mainline of the  Canadian Pacific railway running  into Vancouver.    This  will not  only provide a short route to the  coast from the boundary district  .but from Nicola valley as well.  This, policy .on  the part of the  Kettle Valley -was' fdrcasted in  The News "several weeks ago and  was confirmed-by President J. J.  Warren at Victoria last week.  -_,cThe lihe^will--branch-,from.the  Merritt end of"the- Kettle Valley  at /Railway    Pass,     twenty-six  miles south of' Merritt, and will  continue along the Coldwater to  ���July Creek, along July Creek to  Boston Bar'Creek, "along Boston  Bar creek to the Colquhalla reaching the  latter at a point in the  vicinity, of St.  Elmo where the  Fraser will be bridged so as to  bring the line   across to Ruby  creek to hook up with the C.P.R.  , This will give the Kettle Valley  three junctional points with the  C. P. R_, the other two being at  Midway and Merritt.    This will  not only enhance the service of  freight   interchange    but    will  mean for  the  betterment of t.*hp  passenger service  through  this  RINK FOR MERRITT  Arena May Be Established Near School  House���Land Donated  If the plans of a number of  local sporting enthusiasts mature,  successfully Merritt will have a1  modern curling and skating rink!  this coming winter. It is altogether likely that the rink will  be a closed one and will be con-|  structed along the most 'modern!  and approved lines.  The   proposed   site is  on" the  small   island just south of the:  school building and it comprises!  two acres.    It will also  be possible to utilize a portion of the  river   basin at this point.    The:  land is owned jointly by.William  Voght and Gilbert Blair, and Miv  Voght has  very generously  do-!  nated his share of the holdings.  The local promoters are now in,  communication  with Mr.   Blair,  but it is thought altogether probable that he will donate his end.  TERRIBLE FOREST FIRES  Terrible forest fires resultant  in the loss of much, life and the  destruction of property aggregated at millions of dollars have  been raging through the Panf  handle of Idaho as well as Mon-.  tana during the past few days^  The flames travelling from 20 to  After Struggle of Some  Weeks He Suc-  , - cumbed to.Effects of Mine Accident  '- Sincere and general' was*'the  sorrow Occasioned by the death  7? ���Sln ^~W2^^l%0M>n J^Qftyts; which ^occurred  at St. Paul's hospital, Vancouver,  last Saturday.

Forsyth of Middlesboro scored third place in the  Vancouver Province contest.  Voting was brought to a close  over one week ago but the final  results were only announced on  Monday. Mrs. Forsyth not only  earns a free trip to Skagway  but secures two fine building lots  in the city of Vancouver.  Mrs.  W.  M.   Rose of Vancouver won first place after one of  the most spectacular races in the  history of newspaper   contests.  She closed with  the magnificent  total   of  6,045,074  votes.    Miss  Helen Badgely of Vancouver took  second   place     with   . 5,471,666  yotes.    The furnished bungalow  goes to Mrs. Rose.  ^   Over forty-four million ballots  were produced on the closing day  and there was a big rush for the  deposit   boxes.    The  only other  .up   country    representative    to  finish inside the money was Miss  Blanche McCarty of Revelstoke,  .who scored well over the million  mark.  Little White Berries Cause Death  Ptomaine Poisoning Follows Eating  ANOTHER SHOOTING AFFRAY  Still another shooting affray  has broken the peace of .the Indian reservation at Quilchena.  Louis Saddleman and several  other Indians engaged in a  drunken brawl and Saddleman  pulled a gun and shot one of the  men. The first bullet took effect  in the right arm, inflicting only  a superficial wound, and the  other shots were. wide. Saddleman was arrested and brought to  Nicola and on Monday Was sentenced to nine months with hard  labor in the provincial gaol at  Kamloops.  LOCAL AND DISTRICT  J. P.

This distance from Midway to  Ruby creek by the proposed  route is 271 miles equally as short  as the proposed route of the V.  V. and E. railway.  L. M. Rice & Co., of Seattle  and Vancouver, have secured the  contract for the extension of the  Kettle Valley from Rock Creek  to Bull creek, a distance of  thirty five miles. The grade has  already been completed from  Midway west for ten miles and  construction work will start at  once.  and the fire.rangers"aeclare that"  it is the fiercest fight that they  ever faced. Timber limits, farm  houses and towns have suffered  in" common and it is impossible  at present' to estimate the-loss  of life or property. Spokane is  filled with refugees who had to  flee for their lives. The town of  Wallace was wiped off" the map  and over thirty persons were  burned or suffocated. Lumber  camps and mining properties are  numbered largely amongst the  losses.  GOT SIX MONTHS  George Castallion, who was  held by the police on a charge of  suppiying"theliquor"in~conrie"ct^  ion with the recent unfortunate  affair through which Bob Patten  lost his life, is now in durance  vile at Kamloops. He was sentenced to six months with hard  labor. Shappion, the Indian  whom Patten cut up, is around  again. He is a brother to the  man who did the shooting in  Sunday's affray.  GAME SEASON SOON  The season for shooting game  opens on Thursday  already some of the  are planning trips. Prairie  chickens cannot be shot until  after October 1st, but for blue  or willow or ruffed grouse the  season lasts from September 1st  to December 15th; for ducks,  snipe or geese from September  1st to February 28th; for deer  from.September 1st to December  15th, and for prairie chicken or  Columbia sharp-tailed grouse  from October 1st to December  31st. Boys under the age of 16  years are prohibited in carrying  firearms unless in the company  of parents or guardian.  MAY BE COLD WINTER  Old timers say that there is  every indication of a cold winter  and they have many reasons for  their theory. The bush rats are  boring deep holes. Bears are  already beginning to dig out trees  for  their long sleep.    Gophers  next  and ] have made for the underground.  huntsmen I Squirrels and chipmunks have  been unusually industrious all  summer long. They say it will  be the coldest winter for years  and there appears to be harmony  amongst the old timers in this  opinion.  :    CONSERVATIVES TO MEET  A meeting of local conservatives has been called for this  (Friday) evening at 8 o'clock in  Menzies' hall when matters of  importance will be discussed.  Benjamin Cunliffe, secretary of  the Vancouver conservatives, will  be present and deliver an address.  A full attendance is requested.  gence"' reached Merritt Sunday  night'and Mr.'Loftus with her  son,"Edward, went down to the  coast -to "take charge of the remains, returning last night.  .Deceased was the victim of an  accident in the mines a few  weeks ago suffering serious injuries to- his back and internal  parts.* - He "was transferred to  Str Paul's hospital at Vancouver  for treatment and had been making, splendid progress towards  recovery, so much so that his  end came as a distinct shock to  his relatives and friends. Two  days prior to his death he wrote  TxTHis mother and_the~text of his  letter was couched in the most  cheering words.  " Deceased was 35 years of age  and unmarried. He was a bright,  affable man, full of energy and  hope. With the men at the  mines as well as others he was  intensely popular and his prema-  turedeath is generally mourned.  A widowed mother and a brother,  Edward Loftus, survive and to  them will be extended universal  sympathy.  The funeral took place this  morning from the family residence on-Quilchena avenue and  was largely attended..  ANOTHER ROUTE FOR HILL  Thomas Cumew of Spences  Bridge, .who is town, reports that  V. V. & E. surveyors have been  looking over the situation at  Spences Bridge during the past  few days.  "Hill is coming this way. Of  that I haven't the least doubt,"  he told The News. "I have it  from good authority that the  ���V.'V.y& E. will come down the  Coldwater arid Nicola to Spences  Bridge! then use the C. N. R.  tracks as far as Hope and their  own tracks for the rest of the  way to the coast."  . Born���At Collettville on August 25, to Mr. and Mrs. Fred Gil-  derdale, a daughter.  Misses Ruby Howse and Agnes  Vair have been down from Nicola  for a couple of days.  '" For the \. time being Rev. T.  Walker is living at the home of  Mr. and Mrs. Pomfray.  G. B.

The angler is a conspicuous  man these days and the fishing  is said to be usually good. Izaac  Walton has many enthusiastic  disciples through these parts.  Bert Robinson, formerly of  Middlesboro, but who has been a  resident at the coast for several  months, has returned to Merritt  to live, bringing with him his  young bride.  Misses Isabel and Marjorie  Seaton were the hostesses of a  delightful evening on Wednesday. A number of Nicola friends  were down for the occasion and  the evening was one of the full-  cst^enjoyment.  ;;.vAn interesting visitor to the  valley this week is Benjamin Cun-  liffe, permanent secretary of the  Vancouver Conservative association. Mr.. Cunliffe came up on  Wednesday night's train and is  spending several days in looking  around viewing the sights. He  has many friends here all of  whom are glad to welcome him  to their midst. "'-'  One Child is Dead  and  Another is Critically III  Ptomaine poisoning resultant  from eating the small white berries that grow in such profusion  in the wooded portions of the town  has caused the death of one child  and the critical illness of another.  Little Elsie Stephenson,' the 5  year-old daughter of Captain and  Mrs. Stephenson, developed severe convulsions Wednesday  evening and shortly afterwards  lapsed into unconsciousness, remaining in the state of coma until  death carried her away at 1  o'clock this afternoon. The best  that medical skill could do was unavailing and an examination revealed the presence of poisoning  by the little white berries. Sincere sympathy will be extended  to Mr. and Mrs. Stephenson in  their loss.  The little 2 year old daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Neil McMillan is  critically ill suffering from the  same cause and the doctors are  laboring hard to save her.  MAY   LOCATE HERE  Dr. Williams of Ladysmith was  a visitor to Merritt this week.  He visited with his old friend,  Dr. Kerr, for the greater part of  the time. There is a strong possibility that. Dr.. Williams will  locate, in Merritt and open up a  practice.    ""*"  SCHOOL OPENS MONDAY  ��� The summer vacation is over  on Monday as far as the school  children are concerned.

Hedley, for several  nights.  A wagon loaded with provisions for Owen's camp, several  miles up the Coldwater, came to  grief on Wednesday afternoon  when horses, wagon and freight  were dumped in one conglomerate mass over the embankment.  The horses were. extricated suc-|  cessfully, but presented the ap4  pearance of fly pads, inasmuch'  as they were covered from head  to foot with molasses and syrup.  The liverymen have spent several  busy hours since in cleaning the  horses. 2  THE NICOLA  VALLEY NEWS  Friday, August 19,. 1910  Wm.

REOPENING OF SCHOOL  Merritt public school will reopen for the fall term on Tuesday, _ September 6. Monday  bejng Labor day" it* is necessary  to; defer the opening until the  following day. There promises  to be an unusually large attendance of pupils this ensuing term  thus furnishing one of the best  evidences-of the growth of the  town.   o   RUSH FOR GOLD  The pivtty little town of Hope  albrig the banks of the Frasc-r  river furnished another gold excitement the other day when  there was a rush for the hills in  the near vicinity to stake claims  on property that was reported to  be rich in gold and copper. The  discovery is said to be good in  parts and the ore runs pretty  high in value. This is the first  excitement for the town of Hope  since the stirring days of '58.  NEW REALTY BROKER  John Hutchison, for some time  associated with the Cranbrook  Herald and latterly of Vancouver and Victoria, has opened up  a real estate business in Merritt.  Mr_ Hutchison'has been all over  the province during the past few  months and has selected Merritt  as the most promising field.  Already well known locally and  with a large following of warm  friends he should meet with success in his new venture. He is  better known as "Hutch the  Booster," and'has an unlimited  fund of energy and enterprise.  HOUSE BURNED (DOWN  A house belonging to Dan  Campbell and situated along the  shore of the-Nicola river, near  the ' bridge, was burned to the  ground on Monday. An overheated stove was the cause and  the fire, was - beyond control before assistance arrived. The  chemical engine was utilized for  the first time but its services  were not required, the building  having been reduced to ashes before it arrived on the scene. Mr.  Campbell's loss was upwards of  $500 and included his household  furnishings and personal effects.

But this is underestimated an evidence of which  is found in the stated population  of British .Columbia given at  only 321,733 whereas the local  population will reach well onto  half-a millionr--   ���- '-.   - :  Miss  NEW BUSINESS HOUSE  Miss  Mae  Merriott and  Margaret Doole have secured the  residence    lately    occupied   by  Robert   .Macdoi.ald    and    hav.  opened out a millinery parlor am.  dress making establishment.

MICHAEL'S CHURCH  A large congregation listened  to Rev. Thomas Walker last Sunday evening. Mr. Walker drew  the subject of his discussion from  the biblical incident of the release of-Barabus in the stead of  Christ. "If Christ was on earth  today he would meet with the  same fate that he met with at  the hands of the Jews. You, today, are chosing Barabus instead  of Christ even as the people  chose Barabus in days of old.  I was surprised when I first came  to Merritt to find so much drinking and so many other evils. Of  course I did hot expect to find a  model town but it is unfortunate  that so many fine men are making drink the means of their  downfall. Drink is their Barabus. You make many things  your Barabus ;and it is time that  you turned from these wicked  things and-chose-Christ because  he can save you and preserve  you."

After date of this bulletin a  dry storm will be crossing the  continent and drouth conditions  will be largely increased by  evaporations. In places the corn  and cotton crops will suffer by  drouth, while in the excessive  rain sections very fine growing  weather will prevail.

DANCE WAS SUCCESS  -   The officers  and  members of  the-Middlesboro society netted a  good, round sum for the .building  fund on Tuesday evening when  they gave a social dance in their  -new club house.    There was a  fairly   good   attendance   and   a  pleasant time was spent by the  merry makers.    Music was fui*-  nished by Messrs. Daniels, Prof.  Simmons and Jack McNeill,  and  A. Jackson fulfilled the duties of  floor manager.    During the evening   refreshments  were   served  and in connection with this department  it   would   be well  to  make mention of the   splendid!  assistance furnished by Mrs. Ross  and   Mrs.   Bonna.    A   beautiful  big  cake,   weighing 16 pounds,  the   gift   of   Mrs.   Bonna,   was  auctioned off during the evening  and the successful  bidder was  Joseph Graham.    The cake was  originally the object of a guessing   contest.    An  army button  had been placed in the center and  a guessing contest was organized  at 25 cents a   chance.    But no  one was successful in the guessing with the result that the cake  was auctioned and in this way it  netted $12 for the society.

B.C  HOLDING   UP  RAILROADS  The progress of construction  on the V. V. & E. has been  burked by selfish land owners  who seek to exact a price for  their land that is not only exorbitant but is wholly inconsistent  with the principle of fairness  and honesty. In one instance  certain land owners in the  vicinity of Chilliwack increased  the value oi* their holdings until  they reached $1200 an acre think:  ing that as the railroad had to  come it would pay the price.  But the railroad suspended operations and justly so.  These same land owners forget  that the advent of the railroad  will largely enhance the value of  their! property and they should  find Sample recompense in ; that.  But they are not content with  fair dealing. They want to play  the Shylock if they can and it is  pleasing to know that they have  been defeated in their selfish  ambitions.  It is this same class of citizen  that holds a country back and  the land is better without him.  Of course the matter can be submitted to arbitration and the  railroad will in that way secure  justice, but it will not by any  means exonerate the pig-headed  and self-centered land grabbers  who have set gold before them  as their god and idol.  The land owners through the  Coldwater valley and along the  Tulameen and Otter rivers have  been most considerate in, their  treatment of the railroad and it  is regrettable that the same is  not true of farmers along the  Fraser. Of course we want to  see a reasonable price fixed on  ar*y land but we cannot tolerate  a system of hold-up so as to embarrass the railroad and retard  operations.  INDIANS  AND   LIQUOR  There appears' to be a pretty  well organized traffic in liquor  amongst the Indians throughout  this district. It is being furnished  from many sources and the police  should institute a rigid investigation at once to determine the  guilty parties.  .  During the past few days there  have been no less than two  tragedies amongst the Indians  and both were the result of  drunkenness. We appreciate the  fact that there is good money in  a traffic of this character, but it  is a serious criminal offence and  should be eliminated at once.  We know for a fact that the  hotelkeepers have no knowledge  of the source from which the  Indians secure liquor, but on the  other hand it is common knowledge that certain white men  make it their business to purchase liquor for the Indians.  These same men are indirectly  responsible for the crimes that  have followed drinking, and.- if  they could be apprehended they  should be punished to -^he limit  of the law. It is unsafe to allow  the Indian to tamper with firewater and if the traffic is not  suppressed at once results even  more serious than those already  experienced will inevitably follow.  a line over the' Hope mountains  and connect up with the C. P. R.  at Ruby Creek, thus providing a  more direct route "'to" the '"��� coast",  should make pleasant reading for  the citizens of Nicola valley.  It means that the farmers of  Nicola will be in a better posision  to dispose of their goods, that  they will be in closer touch with  the coast markets. It means  that there will be an almost  direct route by which the coal  can be shipped from the Middlesr  boro mines to the coast points.  It means not only more rapid  transit for freight but lower  freight tariffs. In every way it  means the betterment of conditions.  The News forecasted this policy  on the part of the Kettle Valley,  in fact we have been particularly  fortunate in our predilections  affecting possible railroad routes.  This is true - not only of the  Kettle Valley but of the V. V. &  E., and'we feel confident that  the Canadian Northern will follow the route that we suggested  two weeks ago. Present indications point that way.  SHORT   ROUTE   TO   COAST  .1,  The   announcement   that   the  Kettle Valley railway will build  The warmth and whole-hearted-  ness of the reception accorded  Sir Wilfrid Laurier by the citizens  of British Columbia cannot be  denied. _����� owhere throughout  !the length and breadth of Canada could there be found a people  more hospitable or more generously disposed. The very spectacle in itself of a Conservative  premier directing the entertainment of a Liberal chieftan furnishes a precedent in Canadian  I politics and a worthy model for  >t'i-3r political leaders to adopt.  Hon. Richard McBride has won  thousands.of new friends through  the, broadness and sympathy of  his attitude towards the visiting  federal leader, -' Sir Wilfrid can  go - back to the east fully contented and happier than when he  came. He can go back with a!  fuller appreciation of the splendid character of British Columbians. For they laid aside their  political prejudices and they welcomed him not as the leader of a  Liberal government but as the  first citizen of our beloved Canada, as one of the most picturesque figures in the political life  of the British Empire. It was  patriotism of the truest and  deepest sense that inspired the  splendid welcome.  The Victoria conference which  has just been brought to a close  was a distinct credit to the  Methodist church in Canada. It  was one of the finest deliberative  bodies that has yet assembled on  the coast. Bright men drawn  from some of the highest vocations in the life of the Dominion  and all enthused with the splendid character of the work that  the conference provided for them,  they have written a page in the  church history that will be even  resplendent than any of those  yet written. Matters of vital  importance to the church were  successfully disposed of and  after all matters that affect the  church must have an inevitable  influence on the state. The conference reflected the wonderful  growth of Methodism since the  days of the pioneer missionary  and emphasized the large and  important place that this denomination has secured in the life of  our young and growing nation.  The Ottawa Free Press says  that Judge Mabee's rebuke of  the tyranny of some of the United  States immigration officials on  Canadirn trains will be popular  with the traveling public. "But  it is difficult to see how a remedy  can be provided which will do  away-with the power of the man  dressed in a little authority." It  is lamentable  that the incivility  of .these officials cannot be prevented. Hardly a day passes but  someone is subjected to an insult and it is mature time that  the matter was taken in hand.  To complain to the department  is on a parallel with punishing a  duck by emersing it in water.  Monday's fire, small though it  was, emphasized the importance  of better fire protection in Merritt. The chemical engine was  practically useless though we are  appreciative of the fact that it  would be serviceable in the incipient stages of a fire. The  engine should be kept in the  most centralstation. But what  we want is* more adequate fire  protection and the sooner we organize some satisfactory system  the sooner will the homes and  business hpuses of Merrite be  provided with proper protection  against loss by fire.  Now that the citizens of Merritt are reasonably assured of a  band there should be naught  but the fullest measure of sympathy and encouragement on  every hand.   It is no mean task  to organize a band -and the  financial responsibilities are as a  rule very onerous. The citizens  can do a whole lot towards allevi-.  ating the difficulties surrounding  the band organization and we,  sincerely trust; that they. Will not  be unmindful, of their duty in  this respect. -7 '  A despatch from Paris is to the  effect that a. woman has been  asleep since June 11.

One of  the greatest essentials in making  a home is to select a pleasing en-  viroment.    We have just placed  on the-market whafTis to be~  known as Merritt Terrace and its  location as well as the general  character of the district stamp  it as one of the important future  residential communities of the  town.  Situated on a lofty bluff overlooking the town and commanding a position of unrivalled scenic  wealth Merritt Terrace appeals  in no mean sense to the man who  is looking for a home site. The  character of the soil is in itself  worthy of a first consideration  and general conditions are of  such a nature as to be fully reassuring. The lots all have a  frontage of one hundred feet  and range from one hundred to  two hundred and eighty feet in  depth.  &  *2jfj|e have fixed the purchase.

Charles Law, the well-known  mining man, came into the valley  Monday night and left the follow-  lowing morning for Tulameen  and Princeton on business associated with some of his properties.  There was an unusually heavy  frost on Tuesday night with the  result that vegetation suffered  very seriously. Potatoes and  fruit did riot suffer to any appreciable extent, being too well  advanced.

The government road gang iii.  charge of Fred Seward is now  eamped above King's ranch up  the Coldwater. The new road  leading from the terminus oiythe  present road up to the thirty mile  limit is in course of construction.  The work of excavating for the  new departmental store to be  erected by G. B.

Crowder, Aspen Grove, has been  acquired by the Kettle Valley  railway and will be used 'on construction up the Coldwater. This  is one of the finest spans of  horses in the valley and brought  the sum of $450 in the transfer.  Summerland Review:" Mr.  Howse of Nicola was touripg the  district in his car during the past  week. Near T. J. Smith's ranch  the car ran off the road and a  couple of hours of hard work by  a team was necessary before the  automobile was once more on  level ground."  Thomas Flynn, for some time  wine clerk at the Coldwater  hotel, has joined the mad rush  for gold into the Hope mountains.  Mr. Flynn left Merritt last Friday night and long ere this has  been exploiting the ground that  was the cause of the most recent  excitement at Hope.  It is reported on good authority  that Indians are committing  -wholesale-infractions-of-thefish--  eries law up the Coldwater. In  one instance it is said that they  had a gate placed across the  river for the purpose of gathering in all the fish and the scheme  worked successfully.  Dr. Kerr returned to Merritt  from Vancouver Island on Monday night's train. He will be  permanently located here in the  farm residence of M. Olsen, 17  miles up the Coldwater river.  In this way he will be in an advantageous place for the men in  the construction camps.  Plans for the erection of a  building to house the hardware  business of William Hargraves  in Merritt are pretty well matured. Mr. Hargraves has secured the lot at the corner of  Quilchena avenue and Garcia  street and will commence the  erection of a block in the course  of a few days.  The mines were closed down  on Tuesday because of the absence of cars. There are lots of  empties running on the mainline  but the motive power on the local  branch is wholly inadequate. It  is time that the C. P. R. provided  a satisfactory engine for this  branch because after all it is one  of the best paying branches in  the service.  Indian Agent A. Irwin returned  to his home in Kamloops by Wednesday morning's train.  Chief Engineer A. McCulloch  of the Kettle Valley railway was  at the coast for several days.  Work on the Hamilton hill road  was concluded Tuesday night and  the residents of Nicola have now  better grade to negotiate when  they travel over the Princeton  road.  William Crowder and Mrs.  Crowder left by Monday morning's train for their home in  Paton, Iowa, after spending some  little time with their son, F. W.  Crowder, at Aspen Grove. Mrs.  F. W. Crowder came to Merritt  on Monday morning with the  party and her many friends were  glad to welcome her after an  absence of three months.  Frank Bailey has completed  his survey of the boundary lines  for the proposed municipality of  Merritt. The next move will be  for the committee to secure the  names of property owners within  the restricted district and get  their assent to the plan of incorporation. Mr. Bailey has prepared an attractive map of the  proposed townsite which will be  a valuable aid to the committee.  Rorry Macdonald who has been  in charge of the government  crew engaged in building the  new road around the foot of Gilmore hill has left the government service and joined the  forces of Macdonnell & Gzowski.  Mr. Macdonald is one of the best  rock men in the business and  worked with Macdonnell & Gzowski at Field and other places.  Charles White is in charge of the  government crew at Gilmore hill.  The new road is nearing completion and will be finished in a  few weeks.  BROKE EVEN  Success was written all over  the tennis tournament at Nicola  last Saturday afternoon. . Merritt  and Nicola broke even with two  points each and one event to  finish.  - There was a rather troublesome  wind but despite this disadvantage good tennis was played and  the different events, keenly contested as they were, furnished a  ;wealth of interest for the many  spectators.  . The ladies took charge of the  social side of the function and  tea and light refreshments were  served on the grounds during the  afternoon. There was a large  representation of the fair devotees of the game and the occasion was one of pleasantries.  The games were late in starting and for that reason it was  ihtp^sible^t6~l;o^nciuTie=tire^ro-"  gram, the singles between A. W.  Strickland and J. P.

The fight for the pennant in  the Northwestern league this  year furnishes great interest.  Spokane is in the lead with a  fairly good margin but Vancouver is forcing hard in second  place. The Beavers are getting  into their old time form and winning more games, but the Indians  seem to hold their own so that it  is but a matter of speculation as  to how the struggle will end.  Westminster cinched the championship of the professional lacrosse series last Saturday when  they vanquished the Vancouvers  to the tune of 9 to 4. The game  was pulled off in New Westminster and proved to be one of  the fastest of the season. This  makes seven wins for the champs  against two for Con Jones' men  and it is not unlikely that it will  be the last-game for the present  season.
