Array *^l4a  Vol. 1, No   26  MERRITT, B. C. AUGUST 12, 1910  Price 5 Cents  ailway  lilion  s  5  I.  l  C. P. R. Has Entered Protest  Against Two Lines in Canyon  Matter Goes Before Railway  Commission This Month  "The Canadian Northern railway will come south from Kamloops through the Nicola country  and on over the Hope into Van-  couAer" declared one well known  railroad man in conversation  with The News at Vancouver  yesterday. -And recent developments seem to confirm him for  indications now point very  strongly towards the adoption of  the Nicola route.  The Canadian Pacific railway  has made formal objections to  the Thompson and Fraser route  for ' the Canadian Northern on  ground that there is not room  for two lines in different parts  of the canyons. The matter has  been sent before the railway  commission', and it is popular  opinion that the latter will sustain 'the objection and force the  Canadian Northern to abandon  f^^?t.te__r^oute. yAn- --^ngineer'-rfrom  "the commission is now conducting an. investigation.  ���Andthis is just what the Canadian Northern has sought for  some time'. They are pledged to  the government of British Columbia and through the government .to the people of the province to follow the Thompson  and Fraser route and they cannot abandon the route without  breaking faith.  Canadian Northern engineers  from England who are financially-interested in the project  wenj; over ithe proposed route a  short time ago and on their return; to the old country entered a  vigorous protest against the  Thompson and Fraser route condemning it as absurd.   Contracts-have^been-awarded  LOCAL AND DISTRICT  for those portions of the iine up  as far as Hope and down the  North:Thompson as far as Kamloops leaving-a gap with two alternatives route. But there was  no plausible means of escaping  the Thompson route.  Anjd, then comes the.loophole  through which will be made the  get-a-way. The Canadian Pacific  railway has always worked hand  in hand with the Canadian Northern and so it is that the C. P.  R. will be a lever by which the  Canadian Northern will accomplish its ends. The Canadian Pacific is to make legal objection to  the r&ute and while the Canadian  Northern will oppose it so as to  give a good complexion to the  affair still it is a foregone conclusion that the Railway Commission .will force the C. N. R.  to abandon the Thompson and  Fraser route hby allowing the objections of .the rival company.  This means rthat only one route  will then be available and that  will be down through Nicola  valley from Kamloops.  The local route is nearly forty  miles shorter than the Thompson  route and one of the aims of the  Canadian Northern in taking it  is to block the Grand Trunk  Pacific.       -.'->'  Mrs. H. W. Sutcliffe has returned to Lower Nicola after  spending several days in Merritt.  Died���At Merritt on Monday,  August 8th, Lillian Dorothy, the  six months' old daughter of Mr.  and Mrs. Karl Honkquist. The  funeral was held on Wednesday,  services being conducted by Rev.  Thomas Walker.  The new house now in course  of construction for James Ellis,  mechanical superintendent of  The News, will be ready for occupancy by the end of the month.  The building is being erected on  Mr. Ellis' acre in the Diamond  Vale suvey.  Miss Bella McLeod of Vancouver has been engaged as  teacher for the Nicola school.  The position was first offered to  Miss Erskine, of Victoria, but  she could not accept.  Fourteen musicians are turning out* i-egularly at the band  practicl^.^rHr'Coilett'has-been"  chosen as president and Prof.  Simmons as director and the outlook for a good- band in Merritt  is very bright.  Joseph Graham returned from  the coast last night after an absence of ten days.  Miss Statham arrived Thursday night from her home in London, Eng., and* will visit with her  brother, H. G. Statham, local  manager of Smith & Clarke, for  short time before going to Vancouver to reside.  J. S. Morgan will erect a two  story building on Quilchena Ave.  next his present building. The  dimensions will be 24 feet by 40  feet, the ground floor will be  given over to stores and the  upperfloor^toofnces; =   Dan Munro has secured the  contract from most of the local  business houses for delivering  the express. He has made arrangements with the express  company to handle it and the service is one that will provide  every convenience and should be  unanimously supported.  Charles Barton died on Sunday  morning last at his home on Coutlee Ave. after an illness extending over several months. Deceased has suffered from cancer  of the throat and despite the best  efforts of medical skill the grim  reaper triumphed. He was 45  years of age and well known  and highly esteemed. A widow  and three daughters, one at home  and another in Manitoba, survive to mourn the loss of a  loving father., The funeral services were held on Monday last  Rev. Thomas Walker officiating.  One of the neatest and most  attractive advertising schemes  that'has yet been placed before  the good citizens of Merritt has  been prepared by James Ellis  and issued, from the job department of The News. It comprises  a large frame in which the different business houses of the  town  are  conspiculously   repre  sented and the advQrtising surrounds a large panoramic of Merritt, the whole set forth in catchy  red trimmings, providing a good  color scheme. One of these  frames has been placed in each  of the hotels.  WARREN COMING TONIGHT  . J. J. Warren, president of the  Kettle Valley railway is expected  in Merritt tonight, coming up  from the coast. A. McCulloch,  resident engineer, went down'to  Vancouver to meet him.  Wholesale Liquor  House is Coming  Joseph Food Will Open New  Business House Here  Merritt is to have a wholesale  liquor house that will cater to the  trade throughout this entire  district. Joseph Food, who for  nearly four years has been in  the C. P. R. service at Spences  Bridge will conduct the business  and his application is now ber  fore the provincial police department ior consideration.  * There' should be a splendid  opening in this district for ���a  wholesale liquor house and Mr.  Food is assured of the best of  success in his venture. Already  well known locally and a man of  splendid qualities his coming to  Merritt will occasion widespread  satisfaction and the best of good  wishes will surround him in his  enterprise.  The Morgan building located  on Quilchena Ave., across from  the Coldwater hotel has been  secured and it is expected that  the new business will open up in  the course of a month or six  weeks.  good yield while in some places  there has been a substantial  wheat production. At the ranch  of Martin Olsen, better known  as Central city, there is a pretty  good looking orchard. The  apples are all of the late variety  bUt they look ��� exceedingly well  and some of the trees are so  heavily laden that it was neces  sary to provide supports for  them. "They say you can't  grow apples up the Coldwater  but I am going to show them a  thing or two this season" de-  .clared Mr. Olsen. "This is a  good district for apples though it  is:necessary to grow the hardy  -varieties."

Syndicate, .of  which Joseph Graham is manager, has received advices from  the C. P. R. to the effect that the  railroad company will take all the  coal that the .mine will be produce. They ask for a minimum  supply of thirty tons per day.  officiated and only a few of the  immediate friends were present.  Mrs. Wm. Absom was bridesmaid and James Slater best man.  Both the bride and groom are  well known in Merritt and highly esteemed by a particularly  large circle of friends. That  they will live long to enjoy the  happiness of wedded life and  will be blessed with a plentitude  of the wealth and comforts of  this world is the popular wish of  their admirers who are legion.  Mr. and Mrs. Thorn will take up  their residence in Collettville.  R. W. W. Reid  Will Leave Here  HANEY IS*CAudHT  William Hanev, ' the bandit  murderer,. wanted for > holding  up, the C. P. R. express No. 97 at  Ducks and afterwards shooting  down Constable Isaac Decker at  Ashcooft, has been captured at  Dillion, Mont., in the ��� act of robbing a bank. He was afterwards  identified. ��� The British Columbia  government had hung up a reward of $6500 for Haney's capture.

Rev.   J.   W.   Hedley  When Dinky Engines Arrive  Big Shovels Will Start Work  Then Full Staff of Men Will be Taken on���Contractor Says  He Wants 1000 Men ��� Progress of Work  As soon as the dinkey engines  arrive the big steam shovels will  be put to work on the construction of the Kettle Valley railway  up the Coldwater. These dinkies  are now on their way from Field  and with their arrival the employment of the full force of men  in the different camps will be  realized.  At the present time there are  upwards of one hundred at work  but when the big shovels get  busy the force will be increased  to well nigh one thousand. There  are hundreds of men coming  around in search of work and if  they wait for a short time they  will be given employment according to the contractors.  When the shovels are put into  operation new channels for the I  river in different places will be  dug so as to escape the necessity  of excessive bridge building.  There are at present four camps  in charge of different sub-contractors. One of these was moved  from five mile point to ten mile  point today and the others are  being shifted as conditions demand. Contractor James Macdonnell looked over the ground  last Sunday and Monday and was  well pleased with the progress  that had been made.  If the V. V. and E. comes  around through Railway pass as  is now proposed this will create  a junctional point about 26 miles  from Merritt. The branch line  of the V. V. and E. will come into Merritt from that point and  the mainline continuing up the  Coldwater. The Kettle Valley  will ultimately go over the Hope  into the coast and tqis will mean  that the Coldwater will have two  railroads throughout its entire  valley.  R. W. W. Reid, for nearly  three years accoudtant for the  Nicola Valley Coal and Coke Co.,  at Middlesboro, has been transferred to-Clayburn as accountant  sor the Clayburn Brick Co., ,a  large concern in which the owners of the coal properties are interested. He leaves early next  week to take over his new duties.  His successor locally will be  Felix Graham, formerly of Cobalt but latterly of Vancouver.  ! The removal, of Mr. Reid and  his estimable wife will occasion  widespread regret for they were  intensely-popular with a host of  friends throughout the valley.  In his official capacity Mr. Reid  has given splendid satisfaction  an evidence of which is found in  his recent appointment which  comes in the form of a promotion.  In musical circles he has been  very_prominent_and_his_loss_here_  will be seriously felt. In social  circles both Mr. and Mrs. Reid  have earned wide esteem. In  their own home they were always bright and attractive host  and hostess and in other circles  have proved themselves ever  pleasing and congenial. That  they will be surrounded by the  best of comforts and prosperity  is the earnest wish that will follow them to their new home.  More Men Will be Employed'  ���Big Body of Coal  A new seam of coal was struck  at the Middlesboro collieries  yesterday morning and there is  intense joy in the camp. It is  No. 3 seam located 320 feet back  off No. 2 tunnel. The diamond  drill was working on it all day  yesterday and reached a depth  of six feet but had not finished  so that it will be impossible for a  couple of days to properly estimate the extent of the seam.  This latest seam means  an additional one million tons of  coal in sight and it is of the very .  best quality. It means that more  men will be employed and Superintendent Gray told The News  today that the staff would be in- %  creased at the rate of ten men  per month for at least twelve  months. The coal will be brought  out through'No.' 2 tunnel a distance of 720 feet to.the face.   -  The properties of the Nicola  Valley Coal and Coke Co., represent an area of. 5661 acres." Of'-'"  this" only" 250 :acres*">re~beings  operated and there are twenty--*  three million tons of coal in sight.  Allowing for   an   output of 800  tons daily with a staff of 400 men  this supply will keep ' the mine '���  running   full   blast for over 96 _;  years at the rate of 300 working'  days in the year.     This in itself '���  should not only be reassuring as ���  to the future of this well known.;  institution but it should serve to,:  intensify confidence in the future;;  of Nicola valley of which coal;;'  mining  is   one   of the basic in- ���  dustries. '  GANS IS DEAD  Joe Gans, the former lightweight cdampion of the world  and one of the most talented  and popular boxers who ever  went into the ring, died at Baltimore, Md., from tuberculosis.  While en route from Anacortes  to Victoria'with 800 excursionists  on board the steamer Chippewa  struck on Castle rock. All the  passengers were rescued.  Mayor Gaynor, of New York,  who was shot down while boarding a steamship en route to the  old country,: will recover. His  would be assassin is under arrest.  The provincial government are  building a jail at Abbotsford.  BAILEY  WON OUT  Judgment  for' Plaintiff in_WelIj_  Known Local Case  Judgement has been handed  down' in favor of the plaintiff for  one hundred dollars and costs in  the case of Frank Bailey vs. W.  E. Duncan. This action was  tried at the county court in Nicola some time ago, the plaintiff  suing for $945 for breach of  partnership contract. Alec Mclntyre of Kamloops acted for the  plaintiff and M. L. Grimmett for  the defence.  Max Morrison,   travelling re-  presentativd of Pauline & Co.,  wholesale clothiers and furnishers,   of Victoria,   came into the ���  valley Wednesday night arid has!  gone on out to Douglas Lake and  Quilchena.   Mr. Morrison is one  of  the   best  known   and most  popular commercial men on the''���*:'  road.    He is a splendid salesman  and   in   the   different   business  houses of the big territory that  he   serves there is no sne more  welcome than   "Max"  as he is  familiarly known to his hsst of.  warm friends.

" The following article by the  editor of the Los Angeles Mining  Review appears in the current  issue of that magazine:  On the opposite page will be  found a photographic reproduction of interest to all who participated in , ,the great Slocan  boom of the early nineties, and  to all who are even remotely interested in the spectacular mining excitements that have stirred  the west since the message of  the Argonauts of '49 echoed  around the world and brought  about the general development  of the Pacific coast. It is an  exact reproduction of the front  page of the last issue of the  Kaslo Claim, published for sixteen short but strenuous weeks  at the little town of Kaslo on  beautiful Kootenay lake then a  vortex of mining excitement,  now but a wraith of the past,  devoted to the cultivation of the  apple and the succulent garden  truck, but still sustained by the  memories of those days of the  long ago when fortunes were  made over night and when the  tiger roamed unmolested in the  purlieus of Front street where  all might "buck" who would.  The paper was founded by Col.  R.   T.    Lowery,   a   remarkable  character  who has    made  and  cheerfully  lost something   over  $30,000 in the many journalistic  ventures fathered by him since  the days of the Kaslo Claim, and  who still remains in  harness in  Greenwood,     in    the. Boundary  district of the   same province,  where he now edits the  Greenwood Ledge.   In the earliest days  of my mining  experience I became a. contributor   in a small  way to   the  divers arid  sundry  Lowery publications and in  that  way became well acquainted with  the "editor and financier" as he  called   himself.    He was then,  and':still is. an original writer and  an original thinker, a hater of all  kinds  of shams   and   withal   a  man of the  most   tender  heart,  and one who I am proud to number among my very good friends;  The venture of the Kaslo boom  resulted in a loss of about $1,000;  but nothing daunted, the colonel  came to the scratch in the same  spot in 1895 and resurrected his  first journalistic  venture  under  the name by which it gave up the  ghost.    He succeeded in regaining what he had lost in ths boom  holocaust,     and  a   fair    profit.  Still later the paper passed under  the editorship of   Harold   Bolce,  the well-known msgazine writer,  who  was then  connected   with  the late "Barbarian" Brown   in  =his=mining'venturesnn=thatrpart=  of the  world,    and he  in   turn  gave way at the helm   to  David  King, another remarkable character, who has since written much  of literary value, and  who  now  resides in New  York.    At   that  time the name of the paper  was  changed to The Kootenaian,   and  under that title it is still conducted apparently with success,   in  the little northern hamlet.  The Claim began its career at  a   very   inopportune   time,  and  felt the full  effect of the  utter  stagnation    that    followed   the  meteoric   fall   in   silver a few  weeks later, and the consequent  failure of the late John M.Burke's  bank.    It struggled along  for a  few weeks, in the hope that some  silver lining would reveal   itself-  in the clouds of encircling gloom  but eventually gave up the ghost  and erected its own  tomb on its  front page.    The publication  of  this   general    notification    that  Kaslo was   ' 'busted''  was  most  strenuously resented   by    those  who were compelled to face   the  music without   the wherewithal  to reach  outer civilization,   and  the   doughty colonel   narrowly  escaped being the chief guest at  a little necktie   party   arranged  in his particular honor.    Copies  6f the  last  issue of   The Claim  much as $25. The Mining Review is indebted to -Col. A. TV  Stone and A. T. Garland, of  Kaslo, for the copy from which  the accompanying etching, was  made.  At the time the paper suspended it consisted of four pages  liberally patronized by advertisers; but the box'office evidently  suffered keenly from inability to  recover the amounts represented  in the space thus apportioned.  A glance at the aevertising pages  of the final spasm gives one a  nightmare of topsy-turveydom  that completes the freaky appearance of the sheet. The advertisements of those in arrears  were turned upside down or sideways, or otherwise marred,  while the reading matter was  graced by inverted column rules  indicative of the impending  journalistic funeral.  Among the advertisers  were  many of my old friends,   and not  a few who will be   remembered  by   most of those  who passed  through that sad experience in  the days of  '93.    Among   them  were   A.   H.    (Dandy)     Kelly;  owner   of the  Dandy  -mine   on.  Toad Mountain,  near Nelson, - B.  C.,who   magnanimously  offered  lots in the townsite of Frederic-  ton   for.from- $100 to $200, and  who would   now  be   willing  to  sell the same at one' mill on the"  dollar; George Kane, first mayor  of Kaslo, and his brother   David  P., who were the  original locators  of the towntite    and   who  then dealt in  Kaslo  earth; the  (Coeur d'Alenes *1 hotel,   run  by  John Ward and John King; two  celebrities     who   operated <the  best   gin mill  of the city under  the   firm   name  of   Ward and  King; the Kaslo   Transportation  Company, owned and  operated  by  William    J. Geary,, now of  Fresno,' Cal.,   who made a fortune in the Greenwater boom of  three years ' ago,   and who  has  how retired from the  strenuous  life as ��� a ������ vineyardist; -Thomas  J. Rbadley; the most .active real  estate agent in boom days; Miss  Josie:Foley,   who conducted the"  Dardanelles" -- dining    hall;   the  Palace hotel, conducted by Mike  Mahoney and-G. Lundburg;  the  Theatre Comique   conducted  by  the Hollands  of   Spokane,   and  one of the worst hell-holes ever  operated in any city of the west  on   either side of the   international line, and E. R. Atherton,  who : was  then  in    the general  merchandise line at Watson,  towards the summit of the   range,  and   who is, I  believe,    still in  the same business somewhere in  tKe^ariWdisTrictl1"^^  for my own advertisement,  for,  be it recollected, I also indulged  in the pleasures  of the   real estate agent in those days; but my  search is in vain, and  so I   suppose I had at that time passed  the  limit   of  credit,     and   had  been dropped from the rolls.  The funeral address in the  guise of the leading editorial  was as follows:  "The Claim goes up the shaft  today, and will be deposited in  the journalistic boneyard with  the amount, of regret customary  on such occasions.  "Its career has been short,  but not altogether peaceful. Its  readers have been numerous. It  has made some friends and a  few enemies. The pay-streak  having entirely disappeared, we  are forced to prospect somewhere  else.. To the. few staunch friends  who have;helped us with their  money and sympathy, we extend  our sincere.thanks. To our enemies this article will be pleasant reading. Our suspension  will enable them to bamboozle  the public.without.fear of being-  molested, and consequently they  will be happy.  "Four months.ago this paper  had the brightest prospects of  any    paper   in  Canada.    Today  the life in the wild and silvery  west. One day a prospective  millionaire���the next nothing to  live on but wind and : one of  Burke's checks.  "In lieu of crape, we have  hung the printing office towel on  the door knob. Turn off the gas  ring down the curtain, and exclaim: "The play is over, the  flag hauled down. the Kaslo  Claim is dead, extremely dead."  LOCATING BOUNDARIES  The. matter of properly defining the boundaries for the proposed new municipality of Merritt has been left in the hands of  G. B. Armstrong, I. Eastwood  and Jos. Collett, this committee  having been appointed at last  night's meeting of the Board of  Trade. They will be assisted by  Frank Bailey. Once the boundaries are found an engineer will  make a survey, the names of the  property owners will be fully  learned and then the petition  will be drawn up by M.- L.- Grimmett. for signatures.  NUGGETT MINE BOUGHT  The Nugget mine, one of the  best known properties in the  Sheep Creek district near Nelson  has'been bought by the Guggen-  heims.

Irrigation Meet  Was Big Success  Questions  of  Vital  Importance  Discussed   at  Kamloops  Convention.  The big irrigation convention  at Kamloops was brought to a  close last Friday night. It was  possibly one of the greatest  gatherings that British Columbia  has known for some time not so  much in the point of attendance as in actual benefits  that will accrue from the congressional discussions and addresses.  Kamloops used the visiting  delegates well, in fact hospitality  flowed as freely as water. Calgary was selected as the next  place of meeting and the. direction of affairs was left in the  hands of a good strong executive  for the ensuing year.  Important resolutions asking  the provincial government to  amend the existing Water act so  as to protect more fully the water  record-holders and also requesting the Dominion government to  pass an act relative to the regulation of water powers within  the forty-mile railway belt, were  brought before the convention.  The resolution committee presented one resolution calling upon  the government to amend the  Water Act, so that water recorded for certain lands but not used  thereon could be thrown into  general projects, also calling upon the Dominion government to  reintroduce and enact bill 187,  dealing with water rights in the  railway belt which had been  withdrawn during the legal fight  with the province of British Columbia.  Kelowna farmers to the number of about 250 protested in a  petition against the existing  water regulations, calling upon  the government to take control  of all water and water systems,  to institute an energetic policy of  water conservation, and to amend  the distribution law so as to protect all flumes, ditches and gates  from unauthorized interference.  Premier McBride delivered the  address of the afternoon in a  speech in which he dealt briefly  with the Water act and the  efforts of the government to  carry its provisions into effect  among other things through the  formation of a water commission  to investigate and conserve the  water resources of the province.  The premier assured the convention that its resolutions would  be accorded earnest consideration  by the government. He asked  that the residents of the province  co-operate with the government  in working for a complete and  The Nicola Nicola Valley Steam Laundry  ....   Co., Limited, Middlesboro, B. C.

He announced that a decision  from the privy council as to the  jurisdiction over water titles  within the forty mile railway  belt might be expected at any  time.  In an eloquent peroration the  premier summed up the development of the different sections of  the province, told of the growing  importance of the fruit industry,  soon to be the greatest asset of  the province in which the dry  belt was most conspicuous, welcomed the outside delegates to  the sessions of the convention,  assured the interior settlers of  the interest of the Coast people  and concluded by remarking that  as a western Canadian he could  say with assurance "All is well  with British Columbia."  Mr. F. J. Fulton, president of  the association gave an exhaustive description of the new Water  act of which he is the father,  showing how it provided in so  far as possible for the proper  conservation and distribution of  water, and the protection of  vested interests, at the same  time aiding settlers in irrigating  their holdings.  Mr. Martin Burrell, M. P., gave  an address on irrigation, explaining the progress in that science  achieved in the Western provinces and urging more legislation  by the provincial government  with a view to encouraging the  farmers.  \  Get in on the Ground floor  Only a Pew Good Buys Left for  You  These Prices Will Last Only Until July 15fh.

B.C  POOR SANITATION  It is lamentable that Merritt is  not provided with a proper system of sanitation. Conditions  are fast assuming a critical state  and the provincial health department at Victoria should effect an  , immediate remedy.  There are laws on the statute  books that demand the observance of certain regulations for  householders and business houses  but these laws are flagrantly ignored, and there appears to be no  official to enact them.  Behind some of the houses  through the city refuse of the  most repulsive character is found  while the regulations governing  privies and closets are treated  with the most abstract indifference. In some parts of the city  at different hours through the  day and evening conditions are  almost unbearable and unless  some stringent measures are put  into operation at once a serious  epidemic. of disease is sure to  follow.  It would be well for Dr. Fagan,  provincial.health officer, to visit  Merritt and see for himself  the serious joepardy in which the  health of the local public has  been placed. If incorporation  accomplished nothing else it  would more than justify itself if  it provided for Merritt a proper  system of sanitation.  LORD'S DAY ALLIANCE  Too often we find that the papers of the east in discussing  western problems display a lamentable ignorance of conditions  with the result that some of the  conclusions they draw are absolutely absurd in the opinion of  those who have their life and  being in the great west.  But this is not true of the Toronto Saturday Night. In its  consideration of western topics  this well known journal has ever  been fair and reasonable and in  the majority of cases thoroughly  consistent with fact. It treats  the west with the broadness and  sympathy that it demands and  with its characteristic fearlessness and fervor has often proved  a valuable aid in the solution of  some of the problems that confront us.  In the last issue of the Saturday Night appeared a letter  from a Vancouver correspondent  in which serious objection was  taken to the intereference of Rev.  T. Albert Moore, leader of the  Lord's Day Alliance, with some  of the privileges that westerners should enjoy. It deals  largely with the closing of the  postoffice on Sunday and goes on  to show the hardship this has  wrought on the class that finds  it impossible to reach the post-  office on weekdays. The text of  the letter is interesting. Its logic  is sound and it should carry conviction with any fairminded man.  The Saturday Night assumes a  sympathetic attitude towards the  people of the west in this important matter as well as in the  matter of the militia an instance  of which was cited by the correspondent.  There is a greater freedom and  larger broadmindedness out west)  that some of these over-zelaous  and selfish fanatics from the east  cannot seem to comprehend. They  say the east is good and the west  is bad just because the west is  open and above board in all its  methods.     May  the   day never  dawn that the west will have to  seek the system of secrecy and  hypocrisy for the covering of  its  wrong as it obtains in the east.  We are old enough to look after  ourselves and to do it well  too.  We have tolerated long  enough  the interference of these paid  agents of reform from the east.  We have no fault to find with the  Lord's  Day  Alliance.     It  is  a  noble institution and has accom-j  plished a great good.     But we do J  object to some  of  its  narrow-  minded and fanatical agents and  their methods and can but admire  the courage and reasonableness  of the Toronto Saturday Night in  defending our just cause.  Large Deposits  of Molybdenite  The settlement of the Grand  Trunk strike will occasion widespread satisfaction. Both the  company and the men seem tobe  well pleased with the result and  seldom it is that a struggle is  brought to a close under such  happy auspices. Unionism possesses a powerful force in the  strike system, in fact it was the  threatening of the other branches  of service that really forced the  hand of the company. It is estimated that the strike cost the  company over one million dollars'  but this is a small consideration  when placed in comparison with  the loss and inconvenience sustained by the commercial interests. The fewer strikes the better but if one should occur we!  want to see right prevail and we I  believe that in the settlement of j  the Grand Trunk difficulty this  has been true.  Aspen   Grove   District    Develops Valuable Asset.  An important discovery and  one that bids fair to be remunerative to the men who are promoting the enterprise was made at  Aspen Grove a few days ago  when J. E. Bates unearthed an  almost unlimited deposit of molybdenite. With a party of associates further exploitations  were conducted with the result  that a group of claims have been  taken up and the assessment  work is being vigorously promoted.  Molydbenite is a valuable mineral. From it is made molybdenum used in hardening armour steel. It is worth at the  very least $1.50 per pound.  It is only recently that the Dominion government sent a man  out through the west to investigate deposits of this precious  article. He devoted a great part  of'his time to British Columbia  arid visited the Similkameen  amongst other places. It is unfortunate that he did not come  to Aspen Grove at the time. The  principal purpose of his inspection is to ascertain the possibilities of production of molybdenum because there promises to  be a big market very shortly for  this ore.  A flour mill is being buiitat  Tonasket.  Around Creston skunks are  killing the chickens.  There are 700 licensed hotels  in British Columbia.  C. N. R.  OKANAGAN BRANCH  The construction by the Canadian Northern of a branch into  the Okanagan Valley, from a  point on the main line of the  company at or in the vicinity of  Kamloops, is indicted by reports  received from Kamloops says the  Kelowna Record.  It is declared that in all probability   work   on   building   this  branch will be started next year,  and that it is one of many lines  which Premier McBride had in  mind when at the last session of  the provincial legislature he  prophesied for British Columbia  great railway development on the  heels of the construction of the  Canadian Northern. It is stated  that an arrangement has been  suggested between the city of  Kamloops and the Canadian  Northern by which construction  of the branch to Okanagan will  be commenced next year and  pushed to completion.  A reconnaisance survey of the  route proposed for the Okanagan  branch is reported to have been  made by railway surveyors last  year. Generally the route will, it  is said, follow the old stage route  between Kamloops and the Okanagan, traversing the Grand  Prairie district, Campbell creek  and the upper Salmon River  Valley. The construction of a  railway through this territory  would open up an immense track  of   valuable   agricultural   land.  The Scott Act.  "The Scott Act is to be tested  in British  Columbia,"  says the  ' 'Slocan Record." "It may be a  success in this Province. In Ontario it wasn't even a decent  failure. However, temperance  agitators, like other agitators,  must live, and the only way to  get rid of this class of agitators  is to give them plenty of rope.  It is impossible to. pass legislation that will make industrious  citizens out of confirmed drunkards unless some provision is  made in the Act for their complete isolation until a cure has  been effected. The principal  causes of drunkenness are the  treating system, and card and  dice games. The man who will  stand alone at a bar and get  drunk should be chloroformed,  for nothing will cure him of the  habit. It is the "have another  with me" that produces intoxication and makes confirmed drunkards. Simply the desire of man  not to appear mean among his  fellows. There are hundreds of  men in the West who Will neither  treat nor except a drink from  another at a bar. They buy a  drink when they need it, yet  never become intoxicated. The  new License Act has gone into  effect. It is the best that has  yet become law in Canada, and,  if enforned, Dr. Spencer's occupation, will be gone in British  Columbia."  The flies that are now in your kitchen and dining room were probably  feasting on some indescribable nastiness less than an hour ago, and as a  single fly often carries many thousands of disease germs attached to its hairy  body, it is the duty of every housekeeper to assist in exterminating this  worst enemy of the human race.

BY    G.    W.    DILLINGHAM    COMPANY.  Continued from last week.  Briefly Sbirley explained everything.  She toid him how Mr. Ryder had wril-  veu to her asking her to.call and see  him and how she had eagerly seized :��'  this last straw Iu the hope of helping  lier father. She told him about the letters, explaining how necessary they  were for her father's defense and how  she had discovered them. Mr. Ryder,  she said, had seemed to take a fancy  to her and had asked her to remain in  the house as his guest while she wf.H  i.-ompiling his biography, aud she had  accepted the offer not so much for the  amount of money involved as for the  splendid opportunity it afforded her to  ;-aiu possession of the letters.  "So that is the mysterious work yon  spoke of, to get those letters'." saiil  Jefferson.  ���'Yes: that is my mission. It was a  secret. . I couldn't tell you. I couldn't  tell any one.: Only Judge Stott knows,  tie is aware I have found them and is  hourly expecting to receive them from  ir.e. And now," she said, "I waut your  help."  His only answer was to grasp tighter  the hand she had laid in his. She  knew that she would not have to explain the nature of the service she  wanted.    He understood.  "Where are the letters?" he demanded.  "In the left hand drawer of your father's desk," she answered.  He was  silent for a few moments,  and then he said simply:'  "I will get them."  The cab by this time had got as far  as Claremont, and from the hill summit they had a splendid view of the  broad sweep of the majestic Hudson  and the towering walls of the blue  palisades. The day was so beautiful  and the air so invigorating that Jefferson suggested a ramble along the  banks of the river. They could leave  the cab at Claremont and drive back  to the city later. Shirley was too  grateful to him for his promise of cooperation to make any further opposition, and soon they were far away  from beaten highways, down on the  banks of thc historic stream, picking  flowers and laughing merrily like two  truant children bent on a self made  holiday. The place they had reached  was just outside the northern boundaries of Harlem, a sylvan spot still unspoiled- by the rude invasion of the flat-  house builder. The land, thickly wooded, sloped down sharply to the water, and the perfect quiet was broken  only by the washing of the tiny surf  against the river bank and the shrill  notes of the birds in the trees.  Although it was late in October, the  day was warm, and Shiriey soon tired  of climbing over bramble entangled  verdure. The rich grass underfoot  looked cool and inviting, and the natural slope of the ground affording an  ideal resting place she sat there, with  Jefferson stretched out at her feet, both  watching idly the dancing waters of  the broad Hudson, spangled with  gleams of light, as they swept swiftly  by on their journey to the sea.  "Shirley," said Jefferson suddenly.  "I suppose you saw that ridiculous  story about my alleged engagement to  Miss Roberts. I hope you understood  that it was done without my consent."  "If I did not guess it, Jeff," she an-  swcred,_"your assurance would be suf-  ficient.     Besides,"   she   added,   "what  right have I to object?"  "Rut I waut you to have the right,"  he replied earnestly. "I'm going to  stop this Roberts nonsense in a way  my father hardly anticipates. I'm just  waiting a chance to talk to him. I'll  ���;h_>\v him tho absurdity of announcing  me engaged to a girl who is about to  .���lop:, with his private secretary!"  '���K.npe with the secretary!" exclaimed Shirley.  .leHVrson told all about the letter he  'l.ul found on the staircase and the  'Ion. Fitzroy Bagley's plans for a run-  '.ysi.v marriage with the senator's  ������_���:.l!.iy daughter.  "f< :i tcDilsend to me," he paid gleefully. "Their plan is to get married  next Wednesday. I'll see my father on  Tuesday. I'll put the evidence in his  hands, and I don't think," be added  grimly, "he'll bother me any more  about Miss Roberts."  "So you're not going away now?"  said Shirley, smiling down at him.  He sat up and leaned over toward  her.  "I can't, Shirley, I simply can't," he  replied, his voice trembling. "You are  more to, me than I dreamed a woman  could ever be. I realize It more forcibly every day. There is no use fighting against it. Without you my work,  my. life, means nothing."  Shirley shook her head and averted  her eyes.  "Don't let us speak of that, Jeff,"  she pleaded gently. "I told you I did  not belong to myself while my father  was in peril."  "But I must speak of it," he interrupted. "Shirley, you do yourself au  injustice as well as me. You are not  Indifferent to me���I feel that. Then  why raise this barrier between us?"  A soft light stole Into the girl's eyes.  Ah, it was good to feel there was some  one to whom she was everything In the  worldl  ������Don't ask me to betray my trust,  Jeff," she faltered. "You know I am  not indifferent to you���far from it.  But 1"���  He came closer until his face nearly  touched hers.  "I love you���I want you," he murmured feverishly. "Give mo the right  10 claim you before all the world as my  future wife!"  Every note of his rich, manly voice,  vibrating with impetuous passion,  sounded iu Shirley's ear like a soft  caress. She closed her eyes. A strange  feeling of languor was-stealing over  her; a mysterious thrill passed through  ner whole body. The eternal, inevitable sex instinct was disturbing- for the  first time a woman whose lilt' had  been singularly free from such iuUti-  ences, putting to flight all the calculations aud resolves her cooler judgment  had made. The sensuous charm of the  place���tho distant splash of the water,  the singing of the birds, the fragrance  of the trees and grass���all these symbols of the joy of'life conspired to  arouse the love hunger of the woman.  ���\Vhy, after all, should she not know  happiness like other women? She'had  a sacred duty to perform, it was true,  but would it be less well done because  she declined to stifle the natural leanings of her womanhood? Both her soul  and her body called out, "Let this .'man  love you: give yourself to him; he is  worthy of your love."  Half unconsciously she listened to  his ardent wooing, her eyes shut, as hi.  spoke quickly, passionately, his breath  warm upon her cheek:  "Shirley. 1 offer you all the devotion  a. man can give a woman. Say the one  word that will make me the happiest  or the most wretched of men. Yes or  no!   Onlv think well before you wreck  "Yes. Jefferson,"--.she murmured, "I  do love yon!"  IJis lips met hers in a long, passionate kiss. Her'.eyes closed, and an  ecstatic thrill seemed to convulse her  entire being. The birds in the trees  overhead sang in more joyful chorus  in celebration of the betrothal.  CHAPTER XIV.  fT was nearly 7 o'clock when Shirley got back to Seventy-fourth  street. No one saw her come in,  and she went direct to her room  and after a hasty dinner worked until  late into the night on her book to make  up for lost time. The events of the  afternoon caused her considerable uneasiness. She reproached herself for  her weakness and for having yielded  so readily to the impulse of the moment. She had said only what was  the truth when she admitted she loved  Jefferson, but what right had she to  dispose of her future- while her.father's  fate was still uncertain? Her conscience troubled her, and when she  came to'reason it out calmly the more  impossible seemed their union from every point of view. How could she become the daughter-in-law" of the man  who had ruined her. own father? The  idci. . was preposterous, and: hard as  the sacrifice would be Jefferson must  be made to see it in that light. Their  engagement, was the greatest folly. It  bound each of them'when nothing but  unhappiness could possibly come of it.  Slu: was sure now that she loved .lef-  fcrson.- It would be hard to give him  up. but there are timfrs" and -circumstances when duty and principle must  prevail over all'other considerations,  and this she felt was one of them.
