Array ;;. ���&���  Vol. 1, No   33  MERRITT, B. C. SEPTEMBER 30, 1910  Price 5 Cents  Plan to Make Douglas Lake One of the  Biggest Cattle Producing Bases on Contine  Financial    Consideratk n   in  Deal  is  Reported to be  Million   and Half  One of the biggest deals in the  history of the upper country is  now pending and it involves the  transfer of the extensive properties of the Douglas Lake  Cattle Co., to one of the big  American meat trusts, and the  financial consideration will be in  the vicinity of one and a half  million dollars. .,  Representatives of- the American concern have' been in the  valley for the past few days and  are now engaged in*' looking over  the property. It was only a few  weeks ago that William Ward  secured complete control of the  Douglas Lake Cattle Co., buying  . out his associates J. B. Greaves  and William Thompson. :. <  '. The prospective> - purchasers  represent one of "the ^biggest  meat concerns in the" United  States and* if they, secure the  property it is their plan to carry  out a large number of extensive'  impVdve'mentsand to make it one  ot the largest cattle producing  bases on the continent.  , \ There is every probability that  the deal will go through because  the meat trust desires to secure  a better foothold in British Columbia and they realize that the  acquisition of this property will  largely enhance their opportunities.  Editor McComielfr  Sees Big Growth  One Year   Has   Brought Many  r Changes in  Merritt  : John P. McConnell, editor of  ���the~Vancouver Satttfday"Sunset7  visited Nicola valley this week  for the first time in several  months. He is accompanied by  Mrs. McConnell and together  they are enjoying the health and  beauty of Mr. McConnell's former stamping ground.  Wonderful are the changes in  the opinion of the visitors. They  could hardly credit their vision  as they looked about and saw the  substantial business blocks, the  prosperous looking homes, the  public improvements, the trebled  population and other evidences of  growth'. "All within a few  months" declared Mrs. McConnell. "Merritt will sure be a  good town."  Mr." and Mrs. McConnell are  taking a trip which will embrace  the "Nicola, Similkameen, the  Boundary and Okanagan, the  Kootenays and Crow's Nest.  | "You know I couldn't stay  away from the Nicola country  for more than a year at a time"  declared Editor McConnell. ' '1  fe^l I have a proprietary interest  in it because I was in here before the railroad. Five years  ago last summer Mr. and Mrs.  J\ R. A. Richards rode with me  up to Coal Gully. You know in  those days there was some doubt  about the extent of the seams  which outcropped in Coal Gully  as the dip was quite flat and it  looked as though the seams  might run out at the other side  of the hill. At that time only a  short tunnel had been drifted  mostly by Jos. Graham. However  time has shown that the dip is  satisfactory, that the seams are  permanent and that the Nicola  .valley has coal riches of tremendous extent.  ' 'What this great coa> wealth  means to the Nicola valley you  are just beginning to realize  here. It has already brought  you the.C. P. R. and the Kettle  Valley Railway, and it will no  doubt also bring you the G. N.  R. A great city. is~ bound to be  built in-this valley for*-you have  the coal to make coke and ores  all around to be smelted... Also  you have great agricultural possibilities and, with transportation  and big industries developing,  you are bound to have a great  centre of population. ���-1 have always believed the junction of the  Coldwater and Nicola would be  the site of a big city and you  have already made a splendid  start. ���,   / . .   ��� .  "Your towtf-hasV'grown faster  in a year than any other city in  British .Columbia. with the exception of course of the coast  cities, though'it -"is" doubtful' if  .even Vancouver can show as  great a .proportionate inci-ease  as Merritt. The situation is  ideal here for a fine healthy city,  and I look upon your town as  one of the most promising in the  province.  "What about politics?" Mf:  McConnell was asked. 'You  know there is to be a bye-election  here soon."  "You can say" he answered,"  that politics does not interest me  a little bit. What little ambition I may have ever had for  the game I have entirely lost. I  have. recently   bought _ a ^good  commanding the squadron. Friday was given over to camp making and in the evening the hours  were whiled away around the  big camp fires.   ���  On Saturday the greater part  of the day was taken up with  musical riding and men .who  went into camp rather inexperienced in riding emerged as fairly  well equipped horsemen. On  Sunday morning a public service  was held and it was conducted by  Revs. James Thompson and J.  W. Kidd. Many civilians were  in attendance. Sunday afternoon was given over to musical,  riding and tn the evening a social  time was spent.

C.  the Tented Field  Horse  on  All things considered the first  military camp in the history of  Nicola valley and which organized by the officers and members  of the local squadron of British  Columbia Horse was a gratifying  success.  In point of numbers the camp  might have been more satisfactory, but it is a difficult matter to record a large attendance  of men who are busy in the pursuit of their business duties from  early Monday morning until late  Saturday night. Twenty-five  officers and men were present  and the three days? instruction  cannot but have the very best  effect on the discipline and  general routine.  H. G.

It is understood that the new owners intend to expend a considerable  sum in darning the lakes that are  feeders to Three Mile Creek and  that after a plentiful water supply is assured the land will be  sub-divided for fruit ranches.  Coast papers have contained  accounts of the sale by Smith  Curtis of a portion of his holding on Deadman's creek.

PROTECTIVE TARIFF  i The Canndian Manfacturers'  5 Association did well to not tamper  I with the question of reciprocity  between Canada and the United  States. It was wise policy to  !shelve the issue just at a moment  jwhen it might have caused  'strife.  '   Canada does   not   want reciprocity.    The history of the past  few years has taught us that.  jWhen Sir Wilfrid Laurier went  to the people in 1896 he went on  the strength of a policy of tariff  for revenue purposes  only with  free trade as the ultimate goal.  He denounced    protection   and  ridiculed the policy of his opponents because they sought to  provide a  certain   measure   of  tariff  protection   for   Canadian  industries,    ;  ; But Sir Wilfrid had to swallow  his own words. He had to cast  his free trade policy to the four  winds and to take on the policy  that he had scorned. But Canada demanded it. The peop'e  knew what they wanted and the  federal leader was not long in  finding it out.  ��� Canada is a young country. Its  industries are not old enough or  strong enough to face a free  trade policy. Some men boast  that Canadian industries could  hold their own anywhere. We  agree with that doctrine to a  large extent, but on the other  hand we have to creep before we  walk. In point of product and  classification Canadian factories  are second to none in the world,  but there are other considerations.  , With free trade Canada would  be   made the dumping ground  for the American factories. They  would impose conditions upon the  Canadian people that would make  it  almost prohibitive   for Canadian   manufacturers   to   exist.  Even under the present tariff arrangement certain of the Canadian    factories    are    laboring  under a hardship but this depression  would become general  under a free trade policy.  ^-V/e^give^Sir^Wilfnd=nauTief  credit for being one of the most  brilliant statesman in the empire.  He is head and shoulders above  many of our other colonial leaders.    He is wise in  his generation, and if free trade was really  what its disciples claim  for it  the Canadian people can rest assured that it would have been in  operation in  Canada ever since  1896.    But we must wait.    We  must grow a little more.    Our  pblicy has always been to give  Canadian industries the fullest  measure ot protection.    United  States today has a tariff wall set  against Canadian goods almost  as high as Hamon's gallows. We  must meet them half way.   Canada.will take second place to no  nation.    She is destined to become one of the greatest in the  rank of nations.    She is now the  brightest gem in a diadem that  girdles the globe. We must preserve our imperial relations.  We  must do our  share in the pre-  petuation of the empire of which  we form a part.    Let us trade  within  that    empire.     Let   us  strengthen  the  bonds of unity  through the maintenance of a  better   colonial    preference   in  trade.    Thus can we build up our  industries and   fortify our   industrial position and in the building   let us   give our industries  that which- they most need���a  It was practically a foregone  conclusion   that   the   new   provincial  university would go to  the coast,    Point Grey   outside  Vancouver has been selected as  the site.    If the  commissioners  weighed   the   matter   carefully  and well as we believe that they  did then they most assuredly had  a difficult problem to solve.    For  geographical   situation   it  was  necessary   that   the   university  come to an up country point because it would be more easily accessible   to  the   different   contributing centres of the province:  If it was for the consideration of  associative facilities then it would  have to go to the coast and it  appears   as   though   the   latter  theory   triumphed.     The coast  has educational facilities that up  country points  do not possess,  but. the up  country towns and  cities have to grow yet and they  have   everything    to   win   and  nothing to lose.    The day may  come and not far distant when  the commission will see itf error  in placing the seat of learning at  the extreme western limit of the  mainland. .  Editor Jack McConnell of the  Vancouver  Saturday   Sunset is  always a welcome visitor to the  Nicola valley. 7 Everywhere is he  greeted with the same warmth  of feeling for everywhere is he  appreciated for the splendid service that he has done this district. , If   there   is   one man in  British Columbia who has striven  to place the resources and possibilities of Nicola valley before  the public it is Mr. McConnell.  The columns of his paper are always accessible.    And this interest on the part of the Vancouver editor never wanes for  even now he is making arrangements to devote special space to  a story of the development and  expansion of the district, a story  that will be well illustrated with  incidents of the life and industry  of the people.      K" : j        1  Time and again have we referred to the matter of the in  adequate telegraph seevice that  Canadian Pacific ' Railway company provides for Merritt and  other points in Nicola valley, but  we do not propose to let it rest  until we have something in the  form of a definite assurance from  the company.    The relay system  at Spences Bridge is a relic of  days when difficulties were necessary   evils,   but "surely  in   the  flush of its prosperity the C. P.  R. could afford to string an additional wire from Spences Bridge  te Nicola and make it a continuation of the mainline wire thus  giving___J.hrough___,communication.  The present   system is an imposition   and    a    disgrace   and  should not be tolerated for one  moment;  Rev. Thomas Walker in a letter to the editor which is published elsewhere in these columns  draws attention to the absence  of an institution for the entertainment of the young men. He  cites some of the evils with  which they have to contend and  his point is justly taken. Merritt  is a young town. There are  many things that we need and  need badly. But time alone can  bring them to us and we have  no doubt but that in the evolution  of things that an institution will  be provided for Merritt that will  cater to the moral and physical  welfare of the young men.  Colonel Roosevelt is again a fixture in the political life of the  United States and will soon be  within striking distance of the  presidential chair. His victory  over Vice- President Sherman is  a notable one for many reasons.  It marks a signal triumph for the  Insurgent element. It is a stinging rebuke to Taft. It sounds a  note of warning to the national  Republicans. It means that Mr.  Roosevelt will either be at the  head of a reorganized and a reformed party or it means that the  grand old party will be cut up into two factions, Taft leading one  and Roosevelt the other, and with  but one logical sequence���the Democrats will ride to victory on  the wave of Republican dissension.  ii  ITT HOMESSTES  AND BUSINESS PROPERTY  The future of Merritt as a Commercial, Industrial and  Mining centre is now assured  The Kettle Valley Railway will be Bilt  at an Early Date  Acre and half acre blocks at Merritt at today's prices  will prove profitable buying.

"Acknowledge to my son that 1 was wrong,  Uiut I've seen the error ol" my ways  aud wish to repent? Excuse inc." he  added grimly.' "H"s got to come from  him. lie must see the error of his  ways."  "But the error of his way," laughed  tlie girl, "was falling in love with me.  I can never prove to him that that was  wrong."  Thc financier refused to be convinced, lie shook "his head and said stubborn iy:  "Well,, lie must be put in the wrong  somehow or other. Whj, my dear  child," he \\ent on, "that boy has been  waiting all his life for an opportunity  to say to tne, 'Father, I knew I was in  the right, and I knew you were wrong.'  Can't you see," he asked, "what a false  position it places me in? Just picture  his triumph!"  "He'll be too happy to triumph," objected Shirley.  Feeling a little ashamed of his attitude, he said:  "I suppose you think I'm very obstinate." Tl_.e_ras~she made "no reply he  added, "I wish 1 didn't care what yon  thought.'"  Shirley looked.at him gravely for a  moment, and then she replied seriously:  "Mr. ' Ryder, you're a great man,  you're a genius, your life is full of action, energy, achievement. But it appears to be only the good, the noble  and the true that you are ashamed of.  When your money triumphs over principle, when your political power defeats the ends of justice,-you glory in  your victory. But when you do a kindly, generous, fatherly act, when you  win a grand aud noble victory over  yourself, you are ashamed of it. It was  a kind,* generous 'impulse that has  prompted you" to save my.father and  take your 'son and myself to your  heart. WI13' arc you ashamed to let  him see it? Are you afraid he will love  you? Are you afraid I shall love you?  Open your heart wide to us. Let us  love you."  Ryder, completely vanquished, opened' his arms, and Shirley sprang for-'  ward and embraced him as site would  have embraced her own father. A. solitary, tear coursed down the financier's  Cheek. In thirty years lie had not felt  or been touched by the emotion of human affection.  The door suddenly* opened, and Jefferson entered. He started on seeing  Shirley in his father's arms.  ��� "Jeff, my boy." said the.financier, releasing Shirley and putting her hand  in his son's.' "I've done something"yon  couldn't do. I've convinced Miss Green  ���I mean Miss liossinore��� that we are  not so bad af tp- all."  Jefferson; beaming, grasped 61s father's hand.  "Father!" he" exclaimed.  "That's what I say���father!" echoed  Shirley.. : .  They both o.-braced the , financier  until, overcome with emotion, Ryder  senior' struggled to free himself and  made his escape from the room, crying ; =   "Goodby, children!
