 Vol. 1, No   23  MERRITT, B. C. JULY 22, 1910  Price 5 Cents  Outfits Are  Nearly all Here  Construction on  Kettle   Valley  Will be in Full Swing Early  ���/,. Next Week.  Several hundred men will be  at work on the construction of  tjie Kettle Valley railway out of  Merritt in the course of a few  dkys. Foreman Pat Gorman is  now at work with a force of men  and several teams clearing right  of way. The camp is now  pitched along the banks of the  Coldwater river just back of the  Diamond Vale property.  f.Last Saturday night several  cars of equipment arrived and  on Wednesday night of this week  three more cars came in. Dump  cars, tracks, wagons and other  material are already on the  ground and the big steam shovels  are expected daily having been  on the road for some days.  -"Everything is is fine shape if  we could only get some horses"  remarked the contractor. A. V.  McDonald, the sub-contractor is  still on the lookout for horses  and he is experiencing great  difficulty. He hopes to overcome  this difficulty in a few days.  A big warehouse 85 feet by 50  feet is being built along the spur  to Middlesboro. It is a building  of a permanent character and  when abandoned by the contractors will likely be taken over by  the" railroad as a freight shed.  Being on the spur it-has good  facilities for unloading. The  location of the building strengthens the theory that the station  ..will be placed in,;that vicinity.���y  Chief Engineer McCulloch has'  his"work well in hand and his  crews are " pretty well up with  the'location survey of the new  line. They are several miles up  the "river at present and pressing  on." The construction crews are  just about one mile from the  town but it is likely that a temporary track will be laid and the  steam shovels taken to the big  cuts some distance up the river.  There is considerable rock work  to do but Sub Contractor McDonald says that he will have  the^nrst ten miles completed this  year;  For the remainder of the thirty  mile? completing the Coldwater  section the contractors have not  sublet as yet but James Macdonnell;1 head of the firm, says that  this^will be finished in the course  of the next few months. At the  -Midsyay end-work is being rushed  andrat Penticton good progress  is being made.  Now that it is definitely assured ihat, Penticton will be a  divisionaMmse there is considerable} ppecxilation as to where the  next base will be located. A railroad^ generally places a divisional  base' every 130 miles and from  Penticton that would bring it to  a point about twenty miles up  the Coldwater. It may be that  the base will be brought to Merritt, however, and that is the  opinion of men in close touch  withlthe railway company. From  Merritt to North Bend the distance is 89 miles but that is not  thought to be too short for a di-  visiopL in view of the heavy  grades. President Warren is expected back in Merritt early next  weekv  **; O- : ���  not his habit to shoot into space.  When he goes out to gain an object he is generally found holding it down at the end of the  trail. Mr. Mann in discussing  the matter with the Vancouver  Province, said;  "All our plans are being made  to finish the construction of the  Canadian Northern in British  Columbia one year ahead of the  specified time for its completion.  That means the last touch on the  undertaking in the summer of  1913 for our agreement with the  government of this province calls  for the finishing of the work  within four years from the first  day of the.present month."  This statement from the lips  of a great builder of Canadian  railways means many things.  It means that during. the next  three years millions of dollars  will be -placed in circulation in  British Columbia consequent on  the rushing to completion of 500  miles of railroad construction; it  means construction carried on at  manypoints, pay rolls'of immense  proportions at many places scattered along the route of the new  railway; it means developement  of agricultural and mineral areas  which have lain dormant since  they were first located by the  pioneer of half a century ago; it  means countless other things  which make for prosperity and  to Vancouver and the rest of the  province it means, that in the  summer of 1913 another link between the Pacific coast, the Great  Lakes and the east beyond will  be forged.-      '     ;:���-..-    *  New Clubhouse  for Middlesboro  -~ ��� TWOVED TO ^ENTICTON-'-f  H. G. Lee who for some time  past has been associated with  the Nicola branch of the Bank  of Montreal as accountant has  been transferred to Penticton  where the bank is just opening  up a new branch. Mr. Lee will  likely be in temporary charge in  the Okanagan town and his promotion is a well deserved one  and a recognition of his splendid  ability and worth. That he will  meet with the fullest measure of  success is the wish of a host of  warm friends that he leaves behind him in Nicola. C. T. O.  Rush of Vancouver has succeeded Mr. Lee the latter leaving by  Wednesday morning's train for  Penticton.  At the Nicola hotel on Tuesday  avening-Mr.-Lee-was-the���guest  of honor at a little dinner party  when a few of his friends gathered to impress him in a measure  with the high esteem in which  he was held. Amongst those in  attendance were S. L. Smith,  manager of the Merritt branch,  with Mr. Tandy of the same  office.  .. . -o ���  To* Operate  in Three Years  D.  D.   Mann   Promises    Early  Completion of the Canadian  Northern.  The Canadian Northern Railway wiil be running transcontinental trains into Vancouver  in 1913 if the prophecy made by  Mr. D. D. Mann, vice-president  of the Canadian Northern system  does not miscarry���and those  who know Mr. Mann and his  works are well aware  that it is  SIX FOOT WALKS  The work of laying sidewalks  in Merritt will start in a few  days. Road Superintendent  Sutherland has completed arrangements with local property  owners. Walks six feet in width  will be laid from the Bank of  Montreal to the C.P.R. crossing  along the west side of Voght St.  and along the south side of Quilchena Ave. from William Voght's  residence through to Charters  St. The property owners along  Nicola Ave. are also arranging  for walks. The government has  already ordered two cars of lumber for Voght St. and Quilchena  Avenue.  The steamer Charlotte again  met with an accident in Fort  George Canyon.  Vernon Council is still agitated  over the waterworks question.  The increase in rates is the latest  bone of contention.  Carrington's Hall Will be Con^  verted   Into  Recreation  Institution.'  A fine new club house fully  equipped in all the departments  of an athletic institution with all  the facilities that go to make for  the intellectual development as  well as for social enjoyment���  that is the aim of the officers  and members of the Middlesboro  Society and towards its attainment a fund has already been  organized the neuclus of which  was formed at a smoking concert given in Carrington's-hall  last Saturday evening. :  It has been decided to utilized  and transform the old Carrington building into reading  rooms, gymnasium, club .rooms  and other departments: The  interior of the building will be  fitted up in-attractive style and'  the promoters of the scheme are"  determined that the institution  will- represent the best of its  ciass. There is really no ��� place  of this character in Nicola valley at present and- -that'"-one  should be founded in Middlesboro, in the great coal producing  area of the district from which  radiates the life and energy of  one of the most active^industries  is in itself commendable and the  scheme should earn the fullest  measure of sympathy and support at the hands of the general  public. " t ., ''}.  Saturday night's bill was' one  jgf-the ���versatile .form. ^Speech:  and song^music and other forms  of entertainment all combined to  make up one night of solid enjoyment. ��� The bright spectacular  feature was a five round boxing  contest between the "Seattle  Kid" better known as George  Bonna and Edward Pierce whose  ring name is "Cockney Pride."  The committee kindly served refreshments during the evening  and no stone was left unturned  to provide for the comfort and  convenience of the large audience.  George MacKenzie, vice-president yf the society, performed  the duties of chairman. On his  right was seated S. N. Dancey,  vice-president of the Merritt  Athletic-Association���andon���his-  left Joseph Graham, manager of  the Coal Hill Syndicate.  In his introductory remarks  the chairman outlined the motive  underlying the enterprise and  bespoke for the society the most  generous support in the series  of enterprises that it proposed  to give. Mr. Dancey on behalf  I of the Merritt Athletic Association extended a kindly greeting  and in a few felicitous remarks  appealed for support on behalf  of the promoters of the scheme  to provide a club house for the  Middlesboro society. Mr. Graham briefly addressed the audience pointing out the advantages that would accrue from the  establishment of a club house.  An orchestra comprising R.  W. W. Reid, Prof. Simmons and  Jack McNeill furnished music  during the evening. Songs were  given by Messrs. Pierce, Ward-  rope, Dancey, Bonna, J. Smith  Daniels, Halhead and a recitation by S. N. Dancey. Donald  McPhee danced the Highland  Fling and instrumental were  provided by Jack McNeill and:  W. Hallanan.  A twelve foot ring had been  built for the boxing contest.  W. H. Richardson acted as referee and S. N. Dancey was  timekeeper.   It   was   a   pretty  fast mill all through and there  was little to choose. The referee  finally announced the bout as a  draw. Both men displayed considerable ability at times and in  the early stages the big audience  was treated to some pretty fast  milling.  : The proceedings were brought  to a close with enthusiastic  cheers for the society as well as  those who provided the evenings  entertainment. The Merritt  Athletic Association, was honored  in a similar way and W. H.  Richardson responded on behalf  of the sister institution in a few  well chosen words. The National Anthem rung down   the cur  tain for the night.  . o   Coming Into Merritt  Real Estate  Still on Move  Princeton  Star   Says    Jim  - Come Here.  Hill    Will  Commenting on the report  that Jim Hill will extend the V. V.  & E. down the Coldwater into  Merritt the Princeton Star has  the following to say:  "It is learned from the coast  that Jim Hill will build a branch  line down the Coldwater to Merritt to get his share of the coal  tonnage and as a checkmate to  the C. P. R. It is also reported  that a big push will be made as  soon as steel is laid to Tulameen  and that the V. V. & E. will be  in Merritt in twelve months. In  view of the fact that the C. P.  R. will tap Princeton through  the Kettle Valley line, it is. not  surprising to learn of the < Great  Northern stretching out to the  rich Nicola valley." /"  si-  Provincial.

A shortage of laborers may  affect the output of the salmon  canneries along lhe Fraser river  as well as the northern coast.  The sale of copper during the  month of June amounted to one  hundred million pounds and the  great bulk of it went at 121-2  cents.  Sir Wilfrid's itinerary in the  west    has  been  changed  The  Outlook   in   Merritt  Was  Never   Brighter���Many  Sales Recorded.  Real estate continues to be active in the growing town of Merritt. It is true that the contractors are not complete in their  preparatory ai'rangements for  the building of the Kettle Valley  railway out of Merritt up the  Coldwater river but in the meantime the real estate brokers" are  preparing for a busy season for  it seems inevitable that tremendous activity will follow-the commencement of actual construction on this road.  During the past few  days a  large number of sales have been  recorded but   mostly in inside  holdings.       Several   deals   are  pending for the transfer of ranch  properties  through the   district  and the plans of the promoters  seem to be in common in that  they will subdivide and open  up  the lands for larger settlement.  Enquiries are coming to hand  every day from outside sources  asking for information about the  town.      Everywhere there   appears to be a healthy interest and  the ensuing few months promise  to be the best in the history of  the town.   Now that lumber has  been' received   operations have  been  renewed on  an elaborate  scale and before the snow flies  Merritt  will   have   many more  new homes and business blocks  and the town will have taken on  iii a larger sense the appearance  ofr: the <-commercial,:tmetrppolis  that  it   has   been   destined   to  ^becomel  The sale of lots in the Conklin  estate continues actively and a  number of fine residences will  be placed in that district. J. C.  Conklin, who is in charge of the  estate, reports that a large number of sales have been effected  and that many outside parties  are now enquiring and will likely  buy within the next few days.  "I consider Merritt one of the  best investments outside of Vancouver that you can find in the  province," declared one coast realty magnate and he is one who  ought to know because of his  high position and wide  nections.  will also' the Nicola river and a  roadway built from Nicola Ave.  across to a junctional point with  the Nicola road thus giving a  shorter and more direct route  to the town at the foot of the  lake.  The scheme is one of the most,  pretentious yet undertaken loc-  cally and the popularity of this  particular district.for residential  purposes should secure for it  the fullest measure of success.  It is but a few minutes from  the heart of the business district and furnishes all the advantages that go to make up* a  successful residential district.

The  work of installation will be undertaken as soon as all the  equipment is here. The exchange will be placed in a separate building that will be constructed for it adjoining Gem-  mill's drug store. It will be ten  by fifteen feet in dimensions and  face on Quilchena Ave. It is understood that John Hunter of  Nicola will be operator. .��� : - ...

Just Stop and Think  How Easily You Can  Make Money  L. M. ALEXANDER  Real Estate Broker  412 Hastings St. West Vancouver, B.C.  Early Days in Nicola Valley  By George   Murray,  Nicola.  The   Palmer   ranch   adjoined  the Moore property.    Mr. Palmer was engaged in the shoe trade  on the coast.    But he also showed himself capable of gaining a  leading position as  rancher and  stock raiser.    Both Mr. and Mrs.  Palmer were   active and industrious,   and   pushed  ahead    by  steady and persevering efforts,  which resulted   in acquiring extensive landed possessions   and  one of   the largest   bands   of  cattle in the Interior.  Mr. Palmer while comparatively  a young  man  suffered   from a  protracted illness, which   proved  fatal.    Mrs.   Palmer,   two   sons  and two daughters' survive.    It  is reported that the greater portion of the Palmer estate has recently been    purchased,   which  means that another family, who  had   a large   part in  the  early  making   of   Nicola    will    give  place to others..  About six miles above the Palmer ranch   and at the head  of  Stump Lake, Peter Fraser was  settled and . engaged in   sheep-  raising.    Mr. Fraser was a Nova  Scotian   of  good- old  Highland  stock and a man  of   steady and  industrious habits,   intent   upon  making his business a success.  Everything   respecting suitable  location,   range and production  of   stock   was    favorable.    His  flock   of   nearly   two   thousand  sheep was amongst the finest I  have seen.    But commercial conditions were unfavorable.    Wool  was   almost    valueless. - There  was no market nearer than the  coast which was   but a   limited  and uncertain one at best.    The  prices at which shippers  from  the   American    side   delivered  sheep in Victoria and at other  points   allowed no' margin  for  profit to   sheeprraisers   in    the  Interior of   -British-Columbia.  Transportation "difficulties  and  an    unprofitable    market    was  against    the    producer.    What  promised to be a profitable pursuit had to give place to   cattle  raising    in which  business Mr.  Fraser was engaged to. the day  of his  death.    He was survived  by Mrs. Fraser   and two daughters.    Mrs! Fraser is now   Mrs.  Bulman     of     Kamloops.     Mr.  Fraser was a brother  of John  Fraser, a man of sterling character who is   still  a ' resident of  Upper Nicola.  About four miles from Stump  Lake, Messrs. Trapp and Macdonald both young men, one an  Englishman, and the other a  Nova Scotian, were also engaged  IrTsheep  raising^    The   location  seemed most favorable.    There  was ample range   affording rich  pasturage.    Both men were willing workers.    Macdonald was a  skillful mechanic and would have  won out as a mechanical engineer had not health    compelled  him to seek outdoor employment.  Trapp was a sturdy,   intelligent  Englishman, quick to adapt himself   to circumstances, and full  of. determination.   Those   men  might well   cherish    the hope  that, their partnership and enterprise    would  prove   propitious.  But after several years of hard  labor and investment of all their  capital they found  themselves,  owing   to a   winter of unusual  severity,   with their    band,  of  sheep    killed off.    Time,   labor  and cash were- all gone.    Sheep  farming under existing conditions  was not lucrative and both   men  decided to give up the business  and face the problem of   some  other   pursuit....Rumor had   it  that after discussing   the situation, one said to the other, "Give  me   one   hundred   dollars,   you  take the ranch and I will   go, or  I will give you the hundred dollars, I will take the  ranch and  you go."   Trapp took the specified amount and went out,   and  has since    become one of New  Westminster's most enterprising,  successful   and   esteemed   merchants.    The loss which seemed  so hard to   bear   may  after all  have been a blessing in disguise.  It was a severe trial after several years of strenuous toil and self  denial to have to go out empty  handed.    But looking back today  no doubt Mr.  Trapp  can  say it  was for the best.    And  so it is  in the lives of many.    What   appeared a painful experience   had  a beneficent purpose.    Doubtless  the youthful Joseph,  whose   inhuman  brethren  sent him into  Egyptian slavery was sorely perplexed and bitterly bewailed his  cruel fate.    But the   painful ordeal  was 'fraught with   benign  results.    The outcast from  kindred and home, the Hebrew   serf  attained to highest  honor,   and  in the Divine plan  was the  instrument in preserving his   own  people  from death  through famine.    It was  by   serving that  Joseph learned to rule.    Not on  the lap of dull ease   or amid the  pleasures of self-indulgence  are  strong   characters  formed   and  life's victories won.    It matters  not,   what   the aim or pursuit  through sweat or blood the goal  is reached, if the end sought has  any  lofty purpose.    Only what  is gained in  that way. is worth  having.    Mr.   Trapp  brought  a  buoyant cheerful spirit to  bear  upon his work.    On,one occasion  the writer on  a wet Saturday  afternoon    in the late   autumn  was on his way to hold service  in : Kamloops    on. the  following  Sabbath.    The day was.not only  wet but cold causing double discomfort.    My mood was not one  of the most mirthful.    Arriving  at Tirapp and Macdonald's ranch  I found the  former at   work in  the pelting rain, and was greeted  with cheerful words and a merry  Countenance.     That     reception  was helpful and had a lesson for  me.    Life's trials had not robbed  him   of his.-'.:.���..-bright'-.' and sunny  ways.    Pluck   and:V daring   are  characteristic of the man.    His  coolness   and     courage      stood  him in good stead when  on one  occasion they; were unexpectedly  matched against a  large   Rocky  Mountain bear.    My recollection  of the encounter as told to me is  as follows; Trapp was in charge  of a survey post in the mountains.  He went out in search of   game,  and at some  distance  from him  on the opposite side   of a gulch  he saw a large sized bear, raised  his rifle, fired  and   dropped his  prey.    The hunter hastened to  where the prize  lay,  and found  the animal prone on  its   back,  motionless and seemingly  dead,  and   concluded   that   life    was  extinct.    He put out   his hand,  caught one of the paws,   gave  it a shake, when   to his  horror  up sprang the bear and fiercely  attacked . him.    There    was  no  time to. raise his rifle for a second  shot, as he had to use it to keep  the   bear  from   clutching him.  He had to keep his eye fixed on  Bruin and fight as best he  could  with.the barrel of his rifle. Moving.' backward   cautiously   and  fighting every inch of the way,  hoping     that    an    opportunity  would offer to place another bullet in " his . ferocious  antagonist.  In  the hazardous     retreat    he  found himself in line with a tree  behind  which  he  sprang.    The  momentary shelter "arid .respite  gave him the desired opportunity  of having another   shot which  was  taken  with  deadly  affect.  Grip and gumption with coolness  and  daring   won.    Mr.    Trapp  learned from that encounter always to expend  an  extra cartridge on Bruin however  lifeless  he might   appear.    His attitude  toward such an antagonist would  have been that of   Pat toward a  once vicious dog that he  found  dead by the wayside and  which  Lots of Good  and Prices are Just Right  You needn't be tied up in building your house  now because I can supply you with any grade  of lumber that you require.

CHICAGO MILK DIRTIEST  The milk of Chicago is the  dirtiest in the world. This startling fact, vital to the health of  2,500,000 people, was made public by the milk commission recently appointed by Mayor Busse,  in the preliminary report to the  City Council.  The commission, after going  over the situation carefully, has  arrived at the conclusion that  nothing is to be gained by concealing the facts, and the only  way conditions can be remedied  is to face the truth and begin  reform all along the line. It  was careful to impute no blame  to the city health department,  which, its report says has done  wonders with a staff undermanned and underpaid.  The milk supply of. Chicago  amounts to 240,000 gallons daily.  The commission will continue its  investigation of the milk supply,  9  9  ANOTHER NEW ROAD  William White,   road  superintendent for Kamloops  district,  announces that the road between  Mammette Lake and .

INTERNATIONAL COMMISSION  The announcement comes from  Washington to the effect that an  international commission with  supervisory authority over the  railroads of Canada and the United States will likelj be organized  in the course of the next few  months. Both governments have  appointed commissioners to investigate the situation and it is  a foregone conclusion that their  report will be a favorable one.  While the commission will h^ve  supervision over the railroads in  all their departments the primary  purpose is to secure a more satisfactory   arrangement   in    the  matter of freight rates.     Under  existing conditions it is impossible to compel   railways  or  express companies to establish joint  through rates to and from points  in the two countries and the fact  that American roads are securing  terminal facilities on  Canadian  soil and that Canadian roads are  acquiring terminals on the American iide only serves to complicate matters.   '.'���-'���  The trade between Canada and  the United States has reached  immense proportions and shippers are in constant difficulty  over the question of tarriffs.  There seems to be no agency for  remedying the existing evils unless an international commission  is appointed. The Board of Railway Commissioners in Canada  has proved to be a most successful institution even as the Inter  state Commission has'; wrought  untold good on the American  side. But with an international  body given supervision pver roads  on both sides of the "boundary  many of the difficulties that now  seem insurmountable will be removed. It is a commendable  move and its success will tend to  the betterments1 of relations between the two countries commercially and industrially stnd for the  best welfare of, trade and commerce in all its branches.  Now that the board of trade  has revived the matter of incorporation and has set aside a definite   date    for   the   discussion  amongst the citizens we sincerely  trust that the general public will  take that interest in the question  that its importance demands.   It  is mature time -that Merritt became an incorporated city.     We  know that there are some strongly   opposed  to 'the scTieme  but  what   reform   was   without   its  foes.   Let us rise as one united  people and bring about; the new  life and improved conditions that  can only be gained through  incorporation.     As   one   business  man said at the board meeting  the other night  "there- are too  many petty factions in Merritt  and we must get rid of them."  There is more truth than fiction  in that charge but we feel  assured that once incorporated the  new   municipality   will   have a  peaceful voyage and nothing but  good will result.  of a fanatical moralist then it is  mature time that we moved out  and left the province to that el-  ment. As Editor Jack McConnell in the Saturday Sunset aptly  says, "I think it is absurd for  Dr. Spencer and his admirers j to  to assume a superior morality  over the rest of us poor humans,  simply because they themselves  are indifferent to something ! in  which most other men are keenly  interested." There can be no  serious harm attendant upon the  exhibition of the fight pictures  and if Dr. Spencer resents their  introduction the best thing for  him to do is to stay away from  them.  The citizens of Merritt could  not do better than draw an object lesson from the tragic experience of the town of Camp-  bellton in New Brunswick. What  was once a thriving community  is now a desolate waste and six  thousand people have better  learned the terrors of fire inia  terrible but impressive manner.  We have no fire protection heije.  A blaze might start and a strong  wind carry it through the town  with devastating results. Fire  protection is one of the first problems that should be attacked  just as soon as we can secure incorporation.  are in greater demand during  the summer months and that in  the winter the city of Vancouver and other, centres are filled  with idle men from the lumber  eamps and other places but it  is during these self same winter  months that positions that could  well be filled by white men are  given over to the cheap Oriental workmen. It is a serious evil  and there should be no time  lost in remedying it.  Canadian marksmen scored  well at the Bisley meet this year.  It is gratifying to know that there  is enough public spiritedness in  Canada to send a team every season to this great congress of riflemen and the success that is annually achieved serves as a splendid publicity agency for Canada.  It must be encouraging to those  men who are promoting rifle associations throughout the land  and it certainly should be a stimulant to the younger elements  that are lending their abilities to  the cultivation of the art of mark-  manship.  The provincial government is  well within its rights when it  refuses to bar the exhibition of  the fight pictures through British  Columbia. Mayor Taylor of  Vancouver has i taken a similar  stand. Dr. Spencer, leader of  the local option'and moral reform  movement asked for their immediate suppression but if the  day has come when the vast majority is to be denied a privilege  s imply; to gratify the ambitions  A report comes from Vancouver to the effect that a shortage  of labor will seriously effect the  output of the salmon cannerier  this season. British Columbia  wants men and wants them badly.  The white laboring man is a  pretty scarce article just at present but until his position is better  secured it is a difficult matter to  grapple with the problem. The  presence of cheap Oriental labor  has undermined the labor market  and until the authorities at  Ottawa better regulate the  Oriental immigration we will  always be face to face with this  problem.    It is   true that  jnenj  The Princeton Star says :���  "The Nicola Valley board of trade  stirred up Telephone Supt. Stevens and now Merritt will have an  exchange and lineman. Board  of trade resolutions are great correctives and there should be more  of them where public grievances  and nuisances are permitted by  the government." The Star  must' not forget that the News  was busy too.  The new management of the  Penticton Herald is to be commended upon the excellent improvement it has effected in that  paper. Under the new name the  journal seems to have taken a new  lease of life and larger energy and  better effort are reflected on all  its pages.

She  sat down, and he took his seat at the  other side of the desk, which brought  them face to face. .Again inspecting  the girl with a close scrutiny that made  lier cheeks'burn. IJyder said:  "I rather expected"��� lie stopped for  a moment as if uncertain what to say;  then lie added. "You're younger than I  thought you were. Miss (Ireen; imich  younger."  "Time will remedy that.*' smiled Shirley. Then, mischievously, she added:  "I rather expected to see .Mrs. Ryder."  There was the faintest suspicion of n  .mile playing around tho corners of  the plutocrat's mouth as lie picked up a  book lying on his desk and replied:  "Yes. she wrote' you. but I���wanted  to see you about this."  Shirley's pulse throbbed faster, but  she tried hard to appeal" unconcerned  as she answered:  "Oh. my book! Have you read it?"  "I have," replied Ryder slowly, and.  fixing her with a stare that was beginning to make her uncomfortable, he  went on: "No doubt your time is valuable, so I'll come right to the point.  I want to ask you, Miss Green, where  you goti the character of your central  figure���the Octopus, as you call' him���  John Broderick?"  "From imagination, of course," answered Shirley.  Ryder opened the book, and Shirley  noticed that there were several passages marked. He turned the leaves  over in silence for a minute or two,  and then he said:  "You've sketched a pretty big man  here."  "Yes," assented Shirley; "he has big  possibilities, but I think he makes very  small use of them." .  Ryder appeared not to notice her  commentary, and, still reading the  book, he continued:  "On page 22 you call him 'the world's  greatest individualized potentiality, a  giant combination of materiality, mentality and money���the greatest exemplar of individual-human will in existence today.' And you make indoin-  'table will and energy the keystone of  !iis marvelous-success. Am" I right?"  lie looked at her questioningly.  "Quite right." answered Shirley.  Ryder-'proceeded:  "On page 20 you say "the machinery  >f his money making mind typifies the  laws of perpetual unrest. It must go  ���n relentlessly, resistlessly. ruthlessly  linking money, making money, and  continuing to make money. It cannot  stop until the machinery crumbles.'"  Laying the book down and turning  .-���harply on Shirley, be asked her bluntly:  "Do you mean to say. that; I couldn't  stop tomorrow if I wanted to?"        '  She affected to not understand him.  '���You?'' she inquired in a tone of surprise. ..._,���_.._...._.  '���Well, it's a natural question," stammered Ryder, with a nervous little  l:_u:;'h. "Every man sees himself in  Hie hero of a novel just as every woman sees herself in the heroine. We  are all heroes and heroines in our own  eyes. But tell me what's your private  opinion of this mau. You drew the  character. What do you think of him  .a.s__n____ty_pe���ho_w   w_ould_you classify.  him?"  "As the greatest criminal the world  has yet produced," replied Shirley  without a moment's hesitation.  The finaueier looked at the girl in  unfeigned astonishment.  "CriminalV" he echoed.  "Yos. criminal," repeated Shirley decisively, "lie is avarice, egotism and  ambition incarnate. He loves money  because he loves power, and he loves  (Hiwer more than his fellow man."  Ryder laughed uneasily. Decidedly  this girl had opinions of her own which  she was not backward to express.  "Isn't that rather strong?" lie asked.  "I don't think so," replied Shirley.  Then quickly she asked: "Rut what  does it matter?    No such man exists."  "No, of course not," said Ryder, and  he relapsed into silence.  Yet while he said nothing the plutocrat was watching his visitor closely  from under his thick eyebrows. She  seemed supremely unconscious of his  scrutiny. Her aristocratic, thoughtful  face gave no sign that any ulterior motive had actuated her evidently very  hostile attitude against him. That he  was in her mind when she drew the  character of John Broderick there was  no doubt possible. No matter how she  might evade the identification, he was  convinced he was the hero of her book.  Why had she attacked him so bitterly?  At first it occurred to bim that blackmail might be her object. She might  be going to ask for money as the price  of future silence. Yet it needed but a  glance at her refined aud modest demeanor to dispel that idea as absurd.  Then he remembered, too, that it was  not she who had sought this interview,  but himself. No, she was no blackmailer. More probably she was a  dreamer���one of those meddliug sociologists who, under pretense of bettering  the conditions of the working classes,  stir up discontent and bitterness of  feeling. As such she might prove more  to oe reared than a mere blackmailer  v. :i >'!i   .ic  could   nuy   orr   wiui   inoiicv  lie  know  lie  was not popular,  but lie  was no'wjrse than the other captains  ��� ���!' industry.    It was a cutthroat game  at best.    Competition  was  the soul  of  commcr.-ial life, and if he had outwlt-  le.l  his .���oinpetitors aud  made himself  richer llian all. of them  ho was not a  '���r.min:.l   lor   that.

This certainly was no ordinary girl. She know  wove and had _i move direct way of  saying things than any woman'he', had  ever met. And as he watched her  furtively across the desk he wondered  how ho could use her���how instead of'  being his enemy he could make her his  friend. If he did not, she would go  'away and write more such books, and  literature of this kind might become a  ���real peril to his interests. Money could  do anything.. It could secure the services of this woman and prevent her do:  ing further mischief. But how could  he employ her? Suddenly an inspiration came to him. For some years he'  had been collecting material for a history of the Empire Trading company.  She could write it. It would practically be his own biography. Would she  undertake it?  Embarrassed by the long silence.  Shirley finally broke in by saying:  "But you didn't ask me to call merely to find out what I thought of my  own work." '- ���  "No." replied Ryder slowly, "T want  you to do some work for me."  Fie opened a drawer at the lefthand  side of his desk and took out several  sheets of foolscap and a number of letters. Sh'rley's heart beat faster as  she caught sight of the letters. Were  her     father's     among    them? Sic;  wondered what kind of work John  r.iirkett Ryder bad for her to do and  if fhe would do it whatever it was'  Some literary work probably, compiling or something of that kind. If it  was well-p-id. why should she not  accept? There would he nothing humiliating in it: it would not tio her  hands in any w-iy. She was a professional witor in the market to be .employed by whoever could pay the price.  Resides, such work might give her better oppnrtuiiiiii's to secure the letters  *>f which she was in search. Gathering in one pile all the papers he had  ������mnoved from the drawer. Mr. Ryder  snid:.'  "I want you to put my biography together .from tlii-: material. But first."  lie added, taking up "The American  Oetop'is." "I want to know where you  ;rot.tho details of .'this man's life."  "Oh. for the most part���imagination,  newspapers, magazines." replied' Shir-  'ley carelessly. "You know the American millionaire is a very overworked  topic just now���and . naturally I've  read"���  "Yes. I understand," he said, ."but I  refer to what you haven't read���what  you couldn't have read.. For example.  here." Ho turned to a page 'marked  in the Iwk ami read aloud: "As an evidence of his petty vanity, when a  youth he had a beautiful Indian girl  tattooed just above the forearm." Ryder leaned eagerly forward as he asked  uevii  may   u.i \ i* ;_.i\..u   \. ;U*n  .iit.'t'u i.m  of heaven.  "You're quite a character!" .'.".He  laughed again, and Shirley, catching  the infection, laughed too.  "It's  me and-it  isn't inc."  went on  Ryder,   flourishing   the   book.     "This  fellow Broderick is all right; he's successful and lie's great, but 1 don't like  his finish."  ������It's logical." ventured Shirley.  "It's cruel." insisted Ryder.  "So is the man who reverses the di-,  vine   law  and   hates   Ills  neighbor  Instead of loving hlni." retorted Shirley.  She spoke more boldly, beginning to  feel ulore sure of her ground, and It  amused her to fence in this way with  the man of millions. So far, she  thought, he had not got the best of her.  She was fast becoming used to him,  and her first feeling of intimidation  was passing away.   .  "liiii!" grunted Ryder. "You're a  curious girl. Upon my word yon interest mo!" lie t.iolc the mass of papers  lying at his elbow and pushed them  over to her. "Hero," he said. "I want  you to make as clever a book out of  this chaos as you did out of yoiir ow_i  imagination."  Shirley lunied the papers over carelessly.  (To be continued.)

"What a curious coincidence!-'  "I_et me read you another coincidence," said Ryder meaningly. I-Ic  turned to another part of the book and  read, "the same eternal long black  cigar always between his lips'."  "General Grunt smoked, too," interrupted Shirley. "All men who think  deeply along material lines seem to  'smoke."  "Well, we'll let that go. But how  about this?" He turned back a few-  pages and read: "John Broderick had  loved when a young man a girl who  lived in Vermont, but circumstance.,  separated them." He stopped and  stared at Shirley n moment, and then  he said: "I loved a girl when I was  a lad and she came from Vermont, and  circumstances separated us. That isn't  coincidence, for presently you make  John Broderick marry a young woman  who had money. I married a girl with  money."  "Lots of men marry for money," remarked Shirley.  "I said with money, not for money,"  retorted I.yder. Then, turning to the  book, he said: "Now, this is what I  can't understand, for no one could  have told you this but I myself. Listen." He read aloud: "'With all his  physical bravery and personal courage,  John Broderick was intensely afraid  of death. It was on his mind constantly.' Who told you that?" he  demanded somewhat roughly. "I swear  I've never mentioned it to a living  soul."  "Most men who amass money are  afraid of death," replied Shirley with  outward composure, "for death is  about the only thing that can separate  them from their money."  Ryder laughed, but it was a hollow,  mocking laugh, neither sincere nor  hearty.

Frank Jackson shipped a  couple of cars of cattle to the  coast last week, Jos. Guichon,  jr., went down with him.  A. M. Tyson, the well known  fish dealer of Vancouver, was at  Quilchena on Wednesday enjoying a fish.  Many launch parties are coming up the lake these days the  motor launch being kept pretty  busy.  Plans are almost complete for  the big Labor Day celebration.  The day promises to be the  greatest ever.  Miss Zella Palmer returned to  her home from Winnipeg on  Thursday morning's stage. She  has been visiting in Kamloops  and Merritt.  SAVONA  J. F. Brougham of Vancouver  and a party consisting of Mrs.  Leighton, Mrs. Minchin, the  Missess Leighton, Knight and  Joseph and Messrs Maitland and  Best spent several days here last  week. > Mr. Brougham had one  of Fletcher's launches down  from Kamloops and the party  had a most enjoyable time.  They returned to the coast on  Saturday.  Dances were held here on  Thursday and Friday nights last  week, large; companies being  present on both nights despite  the hot weather. On Thursday  night a large contingent of Ashcroft folks was present, including Mrs. Marcus Bailey, Mrs. R:  Ferguson, Miss McLellan, Mrs.  Gannon, Dr. Sanson and Mr. J.  Cameron.  . D. H. Robinson, C.   P.   agent  and Mrs. Robinson have just re  turned from a trip to Eastern  Canada. Mr. Waugh who has  been acting agent, has gone to  Mission Junction as night operator.  Monday last was a busy day  at Savona, 14 cars of cattle being shipped. Al Fehr and Mark  McAbee shipped 11 cars to P.  Burns & Co. T. Campbell shipped two cars to New Westminster and J. Bamfield shipped one  to Agassiz.  T. Campbell, who bought 46  head of horses out of the Roper  band has sold them to McGilli-  vray and Veasey of Ashcroft  and delivered same last   week.  Henry Parke and wife passed  through Savona on Saturday  night en route to the old country.  Albert Smith, for many years  night watchman for the C. P. R.  at Savona, has resigned and will  devote his attention to his ranch.  He is succeeded by J. Kolk.  Miss Frances Ferguson, who  is home for the summer vacation  has received numerous congratulations on winning the Governor-  General's medal at the convent  in Victoria.  E. Croft of Victoria, brother  of Henry Croft, ex-M. P. P. is  here with his son for a few days  fishing.  The Lakeview hotel is crowded  with visitors at the present time  and Mine Host Ferguson has  had a hard time to furnish accommodation for his many guests.  Haying will be general, around  Savona this week. : In" nearly  every instance the crop will be  very light.        -      ���  H. J. Baker and wife and stepdaughter left for England on  Saturday last. The large num-  of bouquets the ladies received  testified to their popularity.  The Baker family has acquired  possession of the townsite and  it is reported that Mr. Baker  intends to dispose of it in small  fruit farms in England provided  he can get water.  MINTO CUP STAYS  By a score of 10,to .4 the Westminster lacrosse team vanquished  the Montrealers, challengers for  the Minto cup, at Queen's park  oval last Saturday afternoon. It  means that the silver mug will  stay on the banks of the Fraser  because it seems impossible that  the easterners can pull down a  4ead=of=six^goalsf=Nearly-twelve  thousand people saw the game  which was possibly the best for  many seasons. The Montrealers  had a lightning home but were  weak in the defence. They were  playing shorthanded most of the  time because of frequency of  penalization and this was responsible for the one sided score in a  large sense. The return game  will be played tomorrow afternoon.  Frank Gotch denies the story  that he has challenged Johnston  to fight for the championship.  Big Charlie Swain the heavy  hitting outfielder of the Vancouver Beavers has been sold to the  Washington American league  team for $1,800.  Big Ham Hyatt is now a permanent fixture as first baseman  for the Pittsburg Pirates in the  National league. The Vancouver  boy is certainly making good too.  In the fight for the King's  prize at Bisley the Canadians  furnished four out of the first  ten.to finish. The Canucks have  been doing some great shooting  this year.  It is now reported that the  Nationals will challenge for the  Minto .cup and' right here it  might be  well to mention  that  the Nationals are about the fastest playing lacrosse in the east  this season. Newsy Lalonde is  in charge of the team. Last  Saturday's results in the east  were Nationals 11, Capitals 4;  Shamrocks 4, Cornwall 2; Tor-  ontos 9, Tecumsehs 5.  Tex Rickard is bringing suit  for three hundred thousand dol-  laYs^gainst^Govef nor^Gi lletfrnof  California for alleged damages in  connection with the removal of  the big fight from that state.  There is some talk that Tex  Rickard will arrange another  fight between Jeffries and Johnston. The friends of Jeffries say  that he was riot himself on July  4th and that if given another  chance he will fully redeem himself. The match may take place  on Labor Day or Thanksgiving  day.
