NOVEMBER 4, 1910  Price 5 Cents  i t  erritt  ave Keen  onster  servative  een  Ralph Smith Visited Merritt This Week  And Merritt Will Profit by His Coming  BOARD OF TRADE  Federal Agent Saw and Appreciates Need of Public  Works Here.  Ralph Smith, federal member  for .the constituency of Nanaimo,  recently appointed organizer for  the j Liberal party in British  Columbia, and possibly one of  the greatest forces of Liberalism  in the west, visited Merritt over  Wednesday night, returning to  the mainline by yesterday morning's train. He came to learn  the needs and requirements of  Merritt and district so that he  could present them intelligently  to the government at Ottawa.  His coming will have an influence  for'good and will likely result in  the location in Merritt of government buildings and other public  works.  '.'I like the looks of Merritt,"  declared the visitor. "It is some  time since I was here and the  growth of the town is simply  astonishing. The mines are busy  and. there seems to be a great  ;iiie_yelopment-in-theicou^^^ur--  rounding the town. Everything  points to progress and expansion  and Merritt will certainly be one  of the big centres of the upper  country.  "The train last night astonished me and then to see the big  train of coal going out this morning" pleases me all the more.  With such producing agencies as  you have there is^ nothing to it  but you will have.to have railroad communication with the  , coast more direct than you have.  You will have to have a road  over the Hope mountains and I  pro'pose to fight good and hard to  obtain it for you."  And, Mr. ��� Smith means every  word he says. His visit to Merritt;; means that Merritt will have  another friend in the house at  Ottawa and an influential one  toor The climate locally imr  pressed him as much as anything. "Isn't it great," he remarked as he drew a big, deep  breath of the invigorating ozone  of which Nicola valley is so  proud. "I am coming back here  and will bring my family as well  as other friends. I will not tire  in telling the outside world of  the wonderful valley you have  and if ever ] can do anything to  induce settlement gladly will I  do it." And the ring of sincerity  in his voice was convincing of  his earnestness.  A.Liberal caucus was held in  Menzies' hall Wednesday night  when the local leaders were  present to meet Mr. Smith. Provincial politics were not discussed  because it was generally accepted that as there would be no contest it was not necessary to treat  the matter of candidate. Public  works for Merritt formed the  chief topic of consideration.  The government telephone system was hauled over the coals  and   the   determined ".- criticism  importance of the town as well'l  as the amount of business thai  passes through that department  from a local source demands it, "l  stated Mr. Smith when told thali  it was necessary to go to KanH  loops to clear bonded goods.;  "The government will likely put'  the customs department under,  the same roof as the postoffice.)  There is little doubt but that you)  will get both and that they will;  There was no meeting of the  J Merritt Board of Trade last night  j! it being impossible to gather a  quorum. Notices have been sent  out for a meeting next Thursday  night in the offices of the Nicola  Valley Investment and Land Co.  and the importance of the matters to be discussed demands a  good attendance. The scheme  of incorporation will be the  principal topic.  Local Man Will Be  Named  To Try For Yale Nomination  liminary to revolution have been  declared throughout Spain.  Miss Marriott went down to  Vancouver on a business trip this  week.  McBRIDE AT RUPERT  Prince Rupert, Nov. 4���Speaking here at a political gathering  last night Premier McBride declared that the province would  yet get her rights under the  financial arrangement .with the  Dominion.- He criticized Laur-  ier's breach of faith with respect  A VIEW OF NICOLA VALLE     FARM *UANDS NEAR  NICOLA  Y l   -  which was advanced by the local  men told Mr. Smith in unmistakable language of the dissatisfaction with which the local service  is regarded. As a result of the  treatise the federal agent will  take immediate measures to have  the system thoroughly reorganized and placed on a good sound  footing. Amongst other things  it is likely that night operators  will be maintained so as to add  to the convenience of the public.  The present service is wholly in-  adequateand-noone-appreciated  it more .than Ralph Smith when  he was made familiar with the  situation.  But this is the least important  of the improvements that the  local public will in all probability  receive. The erection of a federal building for housing the post-  office and other federal departments are amongst the projects  in contemplation. Mr. Smith was  impressed with the local needs in  the matter of postoffice service  and informed the meeting that a  separate building was necessary  and that he would endeavor to  secure it for the town. The  building as proposed would cost  in the neighborhood of $10,000.  ' 'There should certainly be a  customs house in Merritt.   The  A CONSERVATIVE'S DUTY  Every Conservative voter in Nicola valley should attend  the joint meeting in Menzies' hall tomorrow (Saturday)  evening when a candidate will be selected to represent the  valley in the try for the nomination in the Yale constituency  in the approaching bye-election. Nicola valley has nineteen  delegates whiie the mainline has thirty and it behooves the  local party to send a man to the convention who can get sufficient support along the mainline to ensure him the nomination. It requires a little consideration and prejudice should  be set aside in solving the problem.  be located in the heart of the  town." This reassuring statement on the part of Mr.V Smith  was well received.  The matter of an armoury was  discussed and Mr. Smith was of  the opinion that one should be  built in Merritt though there is  little assurance that it will come  right away. The federal building will be erected early next  year and the construction of the  armoury will follow as soon as  possible.  ���Nicola-valley���is���deserving-of-  better consideration in the matter of Indian affairs and Mr.  Smith was asked to use his influence in securing a local agency  so that these matters could be  dealt with at home. The committee received every encouragement.  "And I tell you another thing.  It is more than probable that  Nicala valley will receive one of  the government experimental  farms and I will do my best for  you in this regard."  "I am simply going through the  province to find out just what the  people really need. In the past  the government has not been in a  position to fully understand the  situation in the various outlying  communities in this province and  when I go back to Ottawa I will  .tell them just-.what is wanted in  the different places. You can rest  assured that Nicola valley will get  the best that is going if I have my  way. The federal building is an  assured thing." And Ralph  Smith has gone away with a full  knowledge of what Merritt and  Nicola valley need most and those  who know him are confident that  he will use his best endeavor to  satisfy local requirements.  "If anything will hasten these  public works it is incorporation,  so get busy and incorporate," he  said as he stepped on the out-  bound train. ���  Laurier Suffered  Crushing Defeat  Conservative Elected in Quebec  in Bye-Election Yesterday.

LOCAL EXHIBIT GOOD  Nicola Valley Applet   Shb^^Good  Advantage at Apple S&(N^;'  That Nicola valley apples aye  showing up well at the? apple  show in Vancouver is the opinion  of those who have seen the 'exhibit amongst the others; - The  I^oard of Trade is to be"congratulated on it's enterprise in sending an exhibit^ ' 'It has awakened  the outside * world to the possibilities of -this district in the  rAatteiLof_grow:ingJapples,Ii_de--  clared one man w "o visited the  show. ;        . . ,  "I tell you our exhibit certainly did look fine,'," stated Dr.  G.

The editor of The News is in  receipt of a Utter i'rom-C. S.  Hubbs and he is enthusiastic as  to the Nicola valley exhibit at  tne show. ��� "The ;,-:Mcola valley  apples are showing up O. K.,"  was the brief text of his letter.  Taken all jri all the Nicola valley  is the richer today for having  dent the exhibit.  Al Carrington is back from a  trip to the * coast, returning by  last night's train. .  THERE WILL BE NO FIGHT  There will be no Liberal candidate to contest Yale riding  in the ensuing bye-election occasioned by the retirement of  Hon. Richard McBride. The News has received this intelligence from the authoritative feources of the Liberal party  and it is confirmed by no less an authority than Ralph Smith,  M. P. The visit to Merritt of "Mr. Smith was purely of an  organizing character. He came to see and learn the heeds  of the community so that he could present them intelligently  at Ottawa. The man who wins the Conservative nomination  at Spences Bridge on November 11 will be the next sitting  member for this riding.    That is a positive certainty. THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, November 4.  1910  Hospital Project  Well Launched  Big   Public    Meeting "Endorses  Action of Committees.  The hospital project has been  formally floated. At the public  meeting in Menzies' hall last Friday evening the citizens of Merritt and Middlesboro as well ns a  few from Nicola and other point?  in the valley were'unanimous in  their endorsation of the scheme.  A strong committee, fully representative of all local interests,  was organized and wHl promote  the detail work. . Lists wjll *.b  circulated and an effort made to  raise an amount in the "valle>  . equal to'thar already subscribed  by the miners. .?>  Dr. C. S. Williams was voted  to the chair but was called jiway  on^profe'ssional duties, hjs < ffire  being filled accepr>>b*y by H. H  Matthews of Nicola. Felix Gra  ham performed the. duties, oJ  secretary in his .usual efficient  manner.  The report of the committee on  - sites    was   present'-d    by  J"hi  ��� Hutchison.      As   announced   in  "  last  week's   News    this   report  ��� recommended   the   adoption  of  - the Balir site adjoining- the Voght  bridge over the Coldwater river.  .The formal resolution authorizing  the general ��� hospital was introduced by S. N. Dancey and  seconded by J. S. Morgan, Fred  Gay, G. F. Ransom, A. S. Ben-  net and others. An animated  discussion followed in whi'-h thr  various phases of the project  were'" treated in an interesting  but-thorough manner and the  resolution pa-sod- th:-... meeting  unanimously.  The site question occasioned a  little controversy, but it was  finally agreed that if the Blair  site was acceptable to the government that it be accepted. The  1 secretary was instructed to draft  '.a letter of thanks  to  Mr. Blair  a;fpr his generous offer and to en-  deavor-if possible  to secure additional land.  The matter of organization was  next taken up. Mr. Gay though'  that there should be three com-  ;<-Tni_ttees>one to canvass for funds.  ; another to wait upon the govern-  ��� ment in.quest  of: a gran.t and a  -i third to promote 'the  necessary  "detail work.    Other suggestions  were offered  and it was finally  resolved that a general committee be appointed  and the  sub-  ������ committees could  be  named  by  - the larger committee.    Upwards  -of-forty-names���were���presented  and accepted.  o   THAT TURKEY DINNER  -''To feed nearly three hundred  hungry men, women, and children, and then to have ample for  a second .dinner was   the   ex-  ' *perience of the  ladies, who pro-  ** -moted the turkey dinner in Men-  " zies hall on the evening of  Thanksgiving day. It was really the first enterprise undertaken by the recently, organized  Ladies' Aid of the local Presbyterian church and incidentally it  was one of the greatest affairs  of its kind ever given in Merritt.  The coffers of the society are  richer today by nearly $200 and  surely that should be gratifying  " to the most fasticious.  The tables were spread on the  big stage  floor and   were  filled  ' time and again.    There was turkey and  chicken  and  duck and  goose and  cukes  and  pies  and  jellies and salads and in fact al-  'most anything that would tickle  ., the pa,Ia��e. It would be unfair  to mention any one name in connection with the preparation" of  the dinner and the carrying out  of the evening's programme for  all the ladies worked indefati-  gably together and the splendid  results that followed came as a  well earned reward.  After   the dinner   George F.  ' Ransom auctioned off some of the  good things that were left and  in some instances received handsome prices. Mr. Ransom was  a great success with the hammer  and earned an additional $18  fir the good ladies. Dancing  was indulged for several hours  the big company entering enthusiastically into the enjoyment  of the evening. Mrs.Dr.Tutillajfid  Mr. McMillian furnished the  nusic for the dancing. "It was  one of those good old fashioned  Thanksgiving dinners," remarked one enthusiastic lady and the  manner in which everyonejoined  in the spirit of the occasion  seemed to confirm her theory.  i~~ch  CHURCH SERVICES  lua:l:x^^I-la_^^^iJ���llJ^���^^__^l.^^.���_lJ___J.^ jrimiTB-Hassaae^aa  ANGLICAN CHURCH.

NTominrt'U ��� h<  leader of the Liberal fores in  the province and a man who has  the ear of the government and  who has always exercised u wi.le  influence at Ottawa his Hssur-  ances are "worths o' more tha'  ordinary notice.  For fourteen years Mr. Smith  has been m politics in British  Columbia and it redounds to his  credit; that in thin -imr- Le h ;���  never' suffered defern but has  continuously held the confidence  and good will of his constituents.  And now, he has assumed the  office.of Liberal organizer for  British Columbia and in that  capacity he is carrying much  weight.  That Merritt requires a federal  building cannot be denied and it  is pleasing to know that the  agent of the Ottawa government  can appreciate the situation and  is willing to lend his ability and  effort in securing this institution  for! the town... The time has  come when the'volume of business associated, vvith the local  postoffice has grown to such an  extent that a. ��� separate building  is necessary. --".''  Then, too, we should have a  customs house because after all  it is unfair to ask the local public to submit to the inconvenionce  and worry o��-t transacting their  business in Kamloops or in any  other "centre. Merritt is growing  and growing fast and commercially and industrially it is  destined to become one of the  most important centers in the interior of British Columbia.  The matter of an armoury is not  so important.but it is essential  that a/i armoury should be built  in this vicinity before many  months. It would serve to stimulate an interest in matters military and would be a splendid aid  "to-tfife-'local,- squadron "of-the"  British Columbia Horse.  Mr. j Smithy struck the right  note when hie said that an improvement was necessary in the  government telephone service in  this district. ;* It is true that we  have the advantage of a local exchange in Merritt but the hours  of service are; so brief and the  system is jacking in so many  other facilities that it is working  a hardship, on the general public.  Taken all in all in all it is a  good thing: that Mr. Smith came  to jlerritt for we are the better  acquainted for his coming. And  incidentally Merritt will have another new friend at Ottawa, one  witji' power and influence, and  the. natural sequence is that we  willprofit through his presence  there much more largely than  we Have through the past.  i0 1THAT BYE ELECTION  ^li^will^be in the throes of a  bye-ele'ct^p before many days  have paiilSd. The convention to  nominate a candidate to contesjt  the riding in the interests of the  government has. been called for  Spences Bridge on November 11.  Whether or not there will be a  contest is a matter of speculation.  The Reading Liberals are opposed  to the idea of a fight because  theyj feel that there would be  nothing to gain. Ralph Smith,  the recently appointed organizer  of the Liberal party, has been  up and down through the riding  but he has yet to announce hiss  finding.  It matters not whether the  Liberals contest the riding or not  it is generally conceded that the  government candidate will win.  The problem before the.Conservative party is to select the man  who can   avry the riding.  The Conservatives of Nicola  valley are of the opinion that  they should furnish the candidate  to represent the government and  a laudable ambition it is. But  ihey must move cautiously. The  mainline has thirty delegates to  Nicola valley's nineteen and  what t e local Conservatives  should do would be to send a  man to the convention who can  carry sufficient support, on the  mainline to win the nomination.  It is not the man who may be  the choice of some of the older  local Conservatives but it should  be the man who can carry the  convention. It is a serious proh-  1 m to solve, but we feel confident that the local leaders of the  party as well as the members are  fully capable of finding the  proper solution.  THE FARMERS' OPPORTUNITY  The farmers of Nicola valley  in common with the farmers  throughout the province have an  opportunity that r they should  prize and improve. There is not  one foot of land- in this district  that will not grow hay and in  spite of this fact there are  thousands of acres lying idle.  The significance of this is  found in the announcement that  five hundred tons of hay are being imported from old Quebec for  use in the lumber camps of  British Columbia. There is no  reason why British Columbia  should not grow enough, hay to  supply its own market as well as  the markets of '.the east.- We  have the soil and climate and we  have every-other facility.  The price of hay will be unusually high this year. At present it is in the neighborhood of  $30 per ton and -is still soaring.  If farmers in Quebec can grow  hay and pay the transportation  charges across a continent and  then sell with a profit it must  surely follow that the farmers of  this province are . seriously neglecting a golden opportunity.  The little town of Hope is attracting a lot of attention these  days and rightly so. For years  the life of the commity has  been confined to a few scattered homes and occasional business house   but    the   order   of  things is undergoing a rapid  change. New business interests  are seeking out the town and  new citizens are claiming it as  their home. The one hotel, a  a fine big hostelry that it is, well  conducted and well patronized,  will soon have.a competitor but  it all furnishes evidence of  growth and expansion. The  country around Hope is unusually  rich and will gome day, in the  not far distant future, be given  over to wonderful productiveness  thus enhancing the business interests of the town itself. It  is true that the gold find in  S teamboat mountain has occas-  sioned lots of excitmeht but we  feel confident, that when conditions have reached their normal  level that Hope will be the centre  of an active mining district. Its  mininig and agricultural resources cannot be ignored and sooner  or later will place the pretty  little town in its proper position,  that, of a prosperous and  enterprising centre from which  will radiate railroads and other  [carrier agencies and from which  will go out hundreds of tons of  ores every year as well as a large  supply of farm produce and other  products that come from the soil  and factory.  of the neighboring republic. That  they will be adopted is a foregone conclusion for evolutionary  development demands them as a  necessity.  The adoption of the aeroplane  for military service marks an  important epoch in the progress  of the age. Of course Germany  has been using them for some  time, and with success, too, but  the very fact that the United  States has found them essential  raises a very interesting point.  It was not very many years  ago that the balloon, as it was  then known, was regai'ded more  as an experiment. In fact it is  still in its experimental stages.  We have gone from the balloon  to the airship, then to the aeroplane and now we have many and  varied types of air navigating  machines, not forgetting the biplanes, monoplanes ond others.  Whether or not the airship will  become a permanent and effective force in modern warfare is a  speculation and time alone will  tell. But the very best authorities tell us that they will be used  to great advantage in the next  war, should one occur. The  development in the method of  air navigation confirms th~ contention of these scientists for  even now we have airships  operating on a commercial basis  and carrying passengers through  the air from one point .to another:;  -���..���.���Whatever, the ultimate result  is it is assured that the airship  will be given a fair trial in military service and if it proves the  success that its friends claim-for  it the whole system of modern  warfare promises to be revolutionized.  THE APPLE SHOW  The apple has been king in  Vancouver this week and justly  so. That British Columbia could  gather together so formidable a  display as it has, should serve to  remove any skepticism as to the  fruit possibilities of this province.  Over one million specimens are  on exhibition and they represent  no less than 194 varieties. There  are 3,424 exhibits and the number of exhibitors is 287.   -  We could not do better than  quote the words of Maxwell  Smith, the man who is largely  responsible for the show, when  he said that it was "the greatest  apple show in the greatest city in  the greatest Dominion of the  greatest empire in the history of  the world."  The show is undoubtedly the  best of its kind ever given 1��o  the world. It represented an  immense amount of labor for it  brought exhibits from all parts  of the iand. British Columbia  fruit won the distinction and in  so doing won for the industry in  this provihce ���;gr^ter:-recognition  As we have contended time and  again BritishColumbia is destined  to \ become. |he orchid of the  nation : and iV w;e are confident  that in the development of  the industry! Nicola valley will  have an important part and this  district, -endowed so bountifully  as it is by nature, wilj be one of  the most important producers.  Fifty cars of hay of one hundred tons each are bieng brought  from old Quebec for service in  the lumber camps of British Columbia. ?-.

If there . is one coal mining  company in the yalley that is  making good substantial progress it is the Coal Hill Syndicate. Under the able management of Joseph Graham the property is being developed most  satisfactorily and the installation  of a plant is only a matter of a  few weeks. ���  A staff of fifteen men is employed continuously and the  company is shipping at least one  car of coal every day. But not  until the plant is installed will  the mine assume its proper place  on the shipping list. The problem of transportation has been  solved and the company is planning to operate on an extensive  scab.  Buildings are now in course of  erection that will house the men  and they include a commodious  boarding house that will furnish  accommodation for at least forty  men. But the matter of accommodation can be readily  adjusted just as soon as the spur  from the Kettle Valley railway is  built and better transportation  facilities provided.  . The personnel of the company  includes some of the most progressive men in the city of Vancouver and with a man of such  .splendid ability and force as Mr.  Graham at the helm "the Coal  Hill Syndicate is destined to become an important factor in the  coal industry of the province.  The product of the mines is regarded as" being amongst the  best in British Columbia and with'  the necessary facilities the march  of progress will continue. In  Andrew Brydon, superintendent  of the mines, Mr. Graham has a  most able assistant and together  they make an unusually strong  team.  Established  1817.

The  ladies propose to organize another .enterprise in the near  future.' -      !  Mrs. Forster went down to  Vancouver the other day arid returned with her mother who will  stay with; her in Nicola until Mr.  Forster returns from his trip to  the old country. Mr. Forster will  leave in a few-days.  Amongst the visitors in the  valley were Mr. and Mrs.;John  Clapperton who came up  from Victoria ty attend the sick  bed of Mrs. Clappertoh's neice,  Mrs. R. H. Winny. --Mr. Clapperton was one of the pioneers  of Nicola yalley!\and".he''j1f.''was  who constructed the > little log  building in Nicola.that-'was,later  used as the first5 postoffice in  valley. ; ''Wonderful are" the  changes," remarked the well  known pioneer as he looked over  Merritt. / ''lam justly, proud of  the to_wn and I believe^ that it  will become one of "the greatest  centres in the upper country."!  Mrs. Clapperton was equally, as  enthusiastic. The . many , warm  friends of this venerable old  couple were glad to have them  back in their midst. Mr. and  Mr_3. Clapperton now live on the  Colquitt road outside of Victoria.  James Bamfield and Mrs. Bamfield were down from Mammette  Lake yesterday, going back this  morning. Mr. Bamfield says  that the road through to Fish  Lake is completed as far as  Beaton's meadows. It is proposed to carry it through from  that point to a point five miles  from" Fish Lake along the ��� main  r'oad to Kamloops. This will  make the distance from MJerritt  to Kamloops via Mammette Lake  about fifty miles. From Beaton's  meadows to Fish Lake there is  already a good wsigon i*oad thus  giving the people, of Nicola, valley access to a popular summer  resort and fishing ground.  r    v FOR SALE  New three room house with  half acre of land.

There is no such  understanding embodied in  the  constitutional  legislation  in  regard  to Prince Edward Island.  The entrance of British Columbia  into the Dominion  was  brought  about urder   circumstances entirely different from those which  had to do with the other   Provinces. The fathers ofConfeder-  ation_had_many_difficuLties_to_  content with, and   none greater  than in regard to the then Crown  Colony of BritishColumbia. Without going into the  history of the  mstter, it is to be noted that the  granting to British   Columbia of  sxi members    in  the   Dominiou  Honse was an arrangmant which  the growth of the   Province was  expected to dispose of,   as it has  disposed of it.    British Columdia  came to be entitled to more than  six members, on the basis of   its  population, and stands  now   on  precisely' the   same   footing as  any   other   province.���Manitoba  Free Press.

A delegation was recently sent  by the government of Victoria to  make a tour of the British Isles,  Europe and the United States in  the persons of Hon. Hugh McKenzie: M. L. A., of Victoria and  minister of lands, and Dr. El-  wood Mead, chairman of the  state rivers and water supply  commission.  The tour   of  half   the world  which has just been concluded,  by these two gentlemen in the  interests of and to exnloit the  irrigation works of the Victorian  government, has been most successful.     Included in   the purposes of the tour was a general  idea that the two members of the  delegation   should,    so   far   as  possible induce immigration, and  far that purpose the Victorian  government     holds    out    very  strong inducements.    It is the  great desire of the officials to  get the lands more closelyjsettled.  For the general welfare of the  country   $16,000,000   has    been  spent in irrigation works alone.  The idea of passing through th"  United States was to get hold of  a hundred farmers who had been  working on  irrigated  land and  who were fully cognizant of that  description of agriculture.     Information which has reached the  delegation  since its arrival   in  Vancouver  goes   to  show that  success has also been met with  along this line.    With the intention of furnishing information  and  getting   settlers,   agencies  have been established in Denver,  Los   Angeles,    San   Francisco,  Portland and Seattle. The whole  tour took up  a full six months  and carried the delegates as far  as the Cavour canal in Italy.   So  far as  the   latter   country was  concerned, however,   not   much  assistance or encouragement was  given by the government.  The Australian land which is  offered to the settlers is very  similar to that in Canada and  grows very much the same class  of crops, including fruits and alfalfa, of which the settlers get  about five crops a year. When  offered for sale it is already  developed and is divided into  tracts of ten to two hundred  acres. The purchaser is given  thirty-one and one-half years in  which to pay for it. The government will also build a house for  him, to pay for which he has fifteen years. Passage money for  =himself=and=family=is-paid-to-the  extent of four-fifths of the full  amount. The land has been  actually grazed or cultivated for  a period of not less than forty  years. The greatest industry  will be dairying, and there are  already many creameries established.  The whole scheme involves  1,500,000 acres, of which 250,-  000 are already under the irrigation system. There is only one  small part of this where cement  pipes have to be used, and this  is at Mildura, which is a fruit  colony. The whole system, with  the exception of this, is watered  by gravitation from the Golburn  river.  It was the intention to get  1,000 people to go to Victoria  before the first of next March,  but since it is only possible to  get one hundred berths, this is  impossible.  Dr. Elwood Merd is chairman  of the state rivers and water  supply commission and is an  American citizen. He has said  that Australia is a country of  about the same size as the United  States, and there are only about  4,000,000 people there as yet.  They are, per capita, by far the  richest people in the world and  the greatest buyers of commodities. The difference between  that country and Canada is that  the seasons do not compete, but  supplement each other. The one  thing lacking between the two  countries: is shipping facilities,  such as those between. Australia  and England.  AUTO LINE TO COAST  The interprovincial road can  be in operation for the sunpmer  traffic of 1912. It would thus  put to shame the snail like Jim  Hill now crawling up the Tulameen valley with the V. V. & E.  on his shoulders, seemingly too  much for him to pack. With  the building of the interprovincial road to the coast an auto  service will be regularly installed  which will reduce the time now  required by the railroad from  three days to one to Vancouver.  May the work of "Good Roads"  Taylor, never slacken is the  prayer of theB Simikameen. ���  Princeton Star.  The federal government of  Australia intends to bring railway employees under commonwealth, control. As the states  still retain the railways themselves this means that the union  will fix the rate of wages while  the states will pay. The federal  government's action is regarded  as a short cut to unification and  the obliteration of the states  which, however, promise to make  strenuous opposition to efface-  ment.  H.
