 New Road Around Gilmore  Hill Now Open to Traffic  Level Road   From  Nicola to  Quilchena   When    Yale  4 Crew Finishes Its End  That  the government of the  province of British Columbia has  done well by the constituency of  Yale and .particularly the Nicola  valley  is'evident   to   those who  have knowledge of exisrmg l.,c..l  conditions.    Tho   large   sums of  money   tH.it ii.tvc bumi appropriated for the   roads ..through  this  district   have   been   well placed  and used to tho best advantage.  The new grades up the Hamilton  hill  represent an  excellent  piece of work as do also the other  rdad improvements.     Authority  has been issued for the construction of a  new road leading from  the main Aspen Grove  road into  the district   surrounding J.   E.  Bates' place. Not alone will this  new thoroughfare provide better  communication with the mines in  that vicinity, but it will also give  to the local settlers a much shorter route to Merritt and Nicola,  reducing the distance by at least  ten miles.

The cost of this new thoroughfare will reach  about $8000 but  it is.mbney well spent and tourists will find it a joy to follow  its pleasant ways between Nicola  and Quilchena, the value of both  .places being   enhanced   in  the  ."matter of resort.

The other ores frojn   this  valley formed part of the  Nelson  exhibit which carried off the general award.  Nicola valley sent a^collec-  tion of silver,   lead,   coal,  gold, asbestos and iron and  it;won the first honors .at  Nelson.     That this collec- ,  tion should be sent to Spokane as part of the Nelson  exhibit is a matter of much  comment locally.   The gypsum exhibit was furnished  by Robert Henderson, owner of the  big gypsum deposits in this vicinityi   ���  Next year's building operations  will be marked by the introduction of brick structures "on an  extensive scale.   This new order  of things will  be brought about  t5rou��h the establishment here  of  a    modern    brick   factory.  Messrs. Whipple & Fleming, the  progressive    contractors,     will  father the new industry and the  capacity will be-'in keeping with  the requirements of the market.  John Fleming, one of the firm,  who has been at the coast secur-  ing additional carpenters, is also  looking into the matter of purchasing the necessary plant and  the m^nufactoit will be ready  for the spring  business.     * 'The  clay supply around Merritt is all,  that couW   be  desired," stated'  Mr. Whipple.

It is estimated that fully  200 men will  be given employment and the camp will likely be  in charge of W.

Coming to MerrittV a  few months ago Smith &* Clarke  opened up   a  branch   of   their  Kamloops confectionery business  but trade developed to such an  extent under the  able management of H. G.

' "It is a far cry from the cay use,  .the freight wagon or the old f our-  * horse stage which were the only  means   of   transportation      between Nicola and Spences Bridge  when I "'first saw  that famous  valley six years ago,   to a  daily  "Strain-with,all its  modern  trim-  '   mings.

Itvis only  an indication of the wonderful  development that is taking place  in this valley of sunshine and  wealth.  "About a year ago I described  Merritt as a town of about 400  people two stores, two hotels, a  newspaper, a dance hall, various  other business places and no  churches. The description must  now be revised. A new newspaper has been established. It  is known as the Nicolia Valley  News and is the brightest and  most enterprising weekly paper  published in the Interior. It is  edited by S. N. Dancey who is  prominent in the Conservative  rail service party and is regarded as a very  wagons  and likely successor to Hon. Richard  stage coaches. Yet it is wonderful how quickly a community can  .become educated to  the  defects  of a railway  when  it  has  been  , forty years without any at all  ...and only three years with one.  \\< ./"The last time  I   visited   this  .valley there was a tri - weekly  -service    from, Spences  Bridge.  - It-was facetiously described as a  strain that came up one day and  iTtried to get back within a week.  is'SoVyou see.after only two years  ��� ..of 'a rail service  the  public had  already begun to appreciate it so  '.���much{that they wanted it im-  ; ��� proved. Then the C. P. R. put  ...on a daily service. The running  r.,time of .this train is three hours  sifor- 47.-1 miles. The running  citime of-the old stage coach was  ,-. about twelve hours. You were  -:,.chilled in  winter and boiled in  - ^summer.'  !..'������ "Today the folKsin here claim  that three hours is  altogether  too long forja 47 mile run.    Also  they"want   the. train   arranged  differently:   The outgoing train  takes many carloads of coal, cat-  -rtle*f h'dgs and -other products as  wellWhuman passengers.    And  the people object to the mixture  '���son't'wd grounds.    One is the associations and the  other is the  ''"time consumed.    They want the  v>Ci"T.-R.'to'put- on  a passenger  '���"train and' make the  time in  an  :hour and a half, or two hours at  * the' most,   which   they   say   is  -> plenty-- and cruth to tell, it looks  ���reasonable.    It is said that if the  'train crew were not employed so  "'long"in* switching   at    Spences  ' Bridge' there would be plenty of  'time for them to run  passenger  trains in and out and~fhe~freigK��  ' trains too. It would mean the  : employment of an  extra engine  and crew at Spences Bridge to  '��� do the switching.    This criticism  McBride when he gives up his  seat in Yale. Enquiry among  local politicians reveals a distinct antipathy ;to the proppsed  candidature of Hon. Carter-Cotton. "If he can't be. elected in  Richmond we don't want him  here," they say. ;"We want a  representative in the House ���who  knows this district and will take  an interest in it." There are  various aspirants, for- the nomination but Mr. Dancey with his  bright paper and his aggressiveness and personal popularity  would seem to have the advantage in the race for the nomination.  However, to get back to Merritt. Besides the new newspaper  Merritt's population within the  last year has increased to about  1200. Many new places pf business have been established and  many new blocks are going up.  A fine hotel has., been built and  two churches, one' complete and  the other nearly, so, have^ been  established while two more will  be built before the snow flies.  Dr. Tutill too has built and  equipped a modern ' hospital.  Two new coal mines are being  developed.  The Pacific Coast Collieries  composed of Minnesota: capitalists is opening property adjoining the Nicola Valley Coal and  Coke Company's lands. They  are meeting with good success  too. Above the Nicola Valley  Joseph Graham at the head of  what is^ known as the Coal Hill  Syndicate composed of Vancouver capitalists, has obtained  splendid results. ; Mr. Graham  witffsMftlT^ib^^^SiW^tuTuiiels  has developed three splendid  seams of coal aggregating 38  feet in thickness. These seams  are 125 feet above the highest  on the Nicola Valley and they  are separate and distinct from  those on the latter property. It  is known that three other good  seams exist on the property.  Incidentally Mr.   Graham conducts a small experimental farm  on the hill.     At an altitude of  2450 feet, 600 feet above Merritt,  Mr. Graham  has proven that it  it is possible to raise oats, potatoes, vegetables of all sorts and  to ripen  tomatoes in the open,  without   irrigation.     His   little  plot of about 10 acres is a revelation and by his enterprise Mr.  Graham  is   performing   an   invaluable service for the valley.  He tells me that when frost hit  the   lower levels none touched  his garden thus bearing out the  theory held  by many that the  bench lands of the Nicola valley  will be less  susceptible to frost  than the bottoms when they are  brought under cultivation.  The Diamond Vale Company  are also preparing to ship coal in  large   tonnage    and   expect   to  greatly increase their staff   of  men in a short time.     The pioneer company, the Nicola valley  "Coal and Coke   Company,   has  made wonderful strides in the  past year and of course easily  maintains   its   position   as   the  premier producer of the Valley,  shipping a daily average of 600  tons which could  be greatly increased if cars were available.  The company now has miles of  underground workings with hundreds of thousands of tons of  coal blocked out.     A   splendid  new compressor plant of Canadian build has  been installed in  the last year and new buildings  and equipment are in��evidence  on every hand.     This company  has   adopted   the   conservative  policy of   fully   developing   its  property before paying dividends  but the dividend period is not far  off now judging by the appearance of everything at the mines.  The completion  of the Kettle  Valley Railway will give all the  mines access  to the smelters of  the Boundary and as the coal is  of first rate coking quality a very  large   and   important   industry  will be developed in the Valley.  A smelter too is one of the possibilities of the future for there  are great bodies of copper ore at  Aspen Grove andTenmile within  easy access, besides a considerable body of hog iron near Nicola  Lake.  Merritt of course is feeling the  effect of the construction of the  Kettle Valley Railway, work on  which has now commenced in  earnest. Macdonnel & Gzowski  who have the contract in chief  forwhat- is-already- iet,-about  thirty miles, have sublet most of  it and men and equipment are  being rushed onto the ground.  Work up the Coldwater can be  carried .o_n continuouslv^tlifbugK  out "tho wintoi  Tlu  r._t-.   -yi_jr���Jir_.__.f~  o _uinoii!>co-  Irient was made ^,l?y president  Warren.recently that, the -Kettle  Valley line was to be extended  to Hope.

The   time is not   far   distant  when the wisdom of  the policy  advocated by the  Liberal  party  in   the   last   elections   that  the  Hope mountain  route should be  built ,by   the  government    and  leased to all other roads wanting  to use it, will be admitted.   That  link would be for-all time a controlling lever on freight rates on  every line running east and west  throughout British Columbia and  being used by several railways it  could be  built better than  any  one road could afford, to make it.  Supported by three or four roads  the eight mile  tunnel  from  the  Tulameen    to   the    Coquahalla  would be an easy possibility. But  unfortunately the value of  this  route would not be admitted by  the     government    because   the  scheme did  not suit  Mackenzie  & Mann  and   the  public never  had a chance to fully consider it.  Mackenzie & Mann have already found trouble for themselves in the.. Thompson and the  Fraser canyons and are begging  the Railway Commission to give  them running rights over certain  sections of the C. P. R. on the  ground that it is impossible to  build a line with a feasible grade  through those canyons. This is  precisely the contention that was  raised against their route by the  Liberal party but the government  railway-expert-politician assured  the province that Mackenzie &  Mann would not only build the  line more cheaply than the C. P.  R., but they would have a better  grade. Now the Canadian  Northern wants to use the C.  P. R. tracks because they say  they.cannot hew a roadbed out  of the cliffs on the other side of  the canyon.  . _The best thing the government,  can do is to adopt the Hope  mountain plank  of the  Liberal  time on the Moore property the  preliminary steps having been a  careful survey of the land for  irrigati-n purposes which was  made last year. The company is  now plowing 3,000 acres of that  land with motor plows. This  work will proceed until the  ground is frozen too hard for  plowing. If, as sometimes happens in this valley, the land does  not freeze up I he work will proceed all winter.  After the land has been broken  and the ditches for distributing  the water have been constructed  it will be planted with suitable  fruit trees. Then it will be subdivided and put on the market.  This is the most attractive settlement sch-me that could be  devised. The intending settler  goes onto a productive property  which is ready to yield a livelihood and in the end a competence. It is true he pays the  company a profit on all its improvements but it is doubtful if  even at that \>e will pay more  than it would cost him to make  them himself. It is a certainty  that unless irrigation and clearing are undertaken on a large  scale with ample capital behind  the scheme, no individual aspirant for the ownership of a small  fruit plot could ever undertake  it successfully.as an individual."  ���Saturday Sunset, Oct. 8, 1910.

Agriculturally Nicola valley is  making good progress of a substantial if not spectacular nature.  Land prices are steady and increasing but many of the big  holdings are being sold to companies who are preparing them  for fruit culture to be later on  subdivided and put on the market.

It is really amusing to take up  some of the American exchanges  and   to  note    the    variance   of  of opinion with which *he movements of Theodore Roosevelt are  ���Warded.      The   Toledo   Blade  ; (Rep.) and the New  York Outlook together with other journals  ��� are firm   in    their  belief   that  /Roosevelt will  not seek election  -:as president in   1912.     On  the  '.other hand we have the opinions  .of such papers as Cottier's Weekly, the Pittsburg Sun (Ind.) and  ..others and they are to the effect  ithat Mr.   Taft has injured  his  ���chances for re-nomination. Some  ���are inclined to treat the  utterances and  conduct of Roosevelt  ..with indifference  and  it is very  much  as  the  New  York   Time  (Ind.   Dem.)   says,    "time   will  work    with  the    president and  against Mr.    Roosevelt."     The  New   York  Evening  Post says  ���that, "if Mr. Taft's friends want  .him to "'run  again he will do so  ;and;Mr.   Roosevelt cannot present his  romination.    Taft will  ' abide <by the will of the people.''  I    The Boston  Transcript (Rep.)  .places the records of Roosevelt  'and Taft together and shows a  .big margin in-favor of Mr. Taft.  -lAndthusit is  that the various  'political journals are divided and  ��� in the* meantime Roosevelt is the  "big'noise'' ail through the land.  'Some;go as far' as to  say  that  "the people  will tire  of Roosevelt,-that no . man can  hold the  public for two years, and that he  has. started  too   early and  his  voice is pitched too high."-  ,. But   whatever   the   outcome  may be it is really of no serious  concern, to Canadians.   We have  our own batttes to fight and we  can ill.afford to  stay ' the wheels  of progress in our own land to  watch  developments across the  border. Reciprocity with Canada  seems to be the aim with  more  than one   American leader, but  let us tell them once and for all  that just as long as the people of  Canada have .voice and power to  -exercise^their���rights���that-reci-  procity will never come.   Canada  is a protection country and must  remain so for the sake of her industries and for the sake of the  happiness and prosperity that the  protective system has brought to  us.  had trie  Laurier  to those  time limit and that the'Contractors stood to lose considerable  money. The sequel was the  application.  That the application  moral support of, the  government is evident  who have studied closely the details surrounding the scheme.  But Mr. McBride and his government were true to their pledges  and the result is that the Grand  Trunk Pacific must employ nothing but white labor.  There are two sides to every  question and it may be interesting to some to understand and  know the reason for the indisposition of the white laborers to  enter the employ of the Grand  Trunk Pacific. The company  has made conditions so unpleasant for white laborers and have  so manipulated the scheme that  white men are practically forced  from their employ. The reason  is obvious for the company hoped  to force the hand of the provincial government. But they  have failed utterly and sooner or  later the Grand Trunk must  know the truth as other men  know it that with air treatment  they will find a surplus of white  labor.  One evidence of the unfair  treatment is found at Edmonton  where men who have left the  employ are forced to wait for  several weeks for their pay.  These men can ill afford to sacrifice their time and means to  meet the convenience of the railway company and ..the,result has  been several cases in the police  court in which the company was  worsted. Other railroad contractors can find all the white  men they require and there is  no reason why the Grand Trunk  Pacific cannot do. the same.  WHERE FOLLY DISCOUNTS REASON  ASIATIC LABOR.  The.refusal of the provincial  government to entertain the application of- the Grand Trunk  Pacific Railway for permission to  employ Asiatic labor on the construction of the line through  British Columbia will meet with  general satisfaction throughout  the province. It, is in keeping  with,the .policy of the government to conserve'..the province to  the white labor.  It is interesting to follow the  course "'-of events and note the  peculiar channels through which  the Grand Trunk Pacific promotes its scheme to secure cheap  Oriental labor. The Winnipeg  Free Press, the western organ  of the.-?ederel government, published a story to the effect that  the scarcity of white labor was  seriously interfering with the  building of the line. The paper  went on to say that unless the  British Columbia government  would permit the employment of  Asiatic'labor that the line would  not be completed    within    the  For an example of pure, unadulterated bigotry we are giving to  our readers the text of a letter  which was x'eceivedby the editor  of this paper from a Vancouver  man.  After quoting a dispatch in a  Vancouver paper  to the  effect  that there would' be  a bye-election in Yale early  in December  the correspondent continues:  "When it is made clear to  the people of Yale  that the  McBride    government   has  been returned to power three  times   and that it permits  every voter in Vancouver to  have five votes whilst every  voter in  Yale  has  only one  vote, surely the Conservative  candidate   will    be   snowed  under. Will the men of Yale  , rise to the occasion and prove  to the whole world that they  ���aremenr'-' = == ���  There is just about as much  logic in that argument as there  was in the argument of an Edmonton man .who held that the  price of wheat should be reduced  because the American fishermen  were allowed to poach in Canadian waters. The writer of this  rather interesting letter was J.  N. Muir and he sent his letter in  circular form. Mr. Muir must  remember that the five vote  scheme in Vancouver exists because there are five men to elect.  If Yale required two representatives he could rest assured that  the electors of Yale would have  two votes.  We certainly 'do appreciate  good honest criticism but for  narrowmindedness and absolute  ignorance Mr. Muir's contribution must assuredly be given  first place. It would be more to  his advantage if he would devote  the time consumed in the preparation of such ridiculous statements to a study of political conditions in British Columbia.  CABINET CHANGES  The McBride cabinet has been  reorganized and the changes will  assuredly work out for the good  of the government. Hon. Carter  Cotton has retired from the office  of President of the Council and  is succeeded by A. E. McPhillips  whose long parlimentary experience as well as his executive  ability should fully equip him for  the new office. The retirement  of Mr. Carier Cotton marks the  removal of one of the oldest and  best known members of the government. The inclusion of W. R.  Ross, K. C. of Fernie, as Minister of Lands shows good tact and  judgment. Mr. Ross will bring  to the performance of his duties  the necessary ability and tack.  No better selection of a portfolio could have been made for  him and those who know him are  confident that he will be a gratifying success. Popular throughout the province for he is widly  known, Mr Ross will be surrounded by a host of well wishers.  Hon Price Ellison's elevation to  the portfolio of finance and agriculture is well timed. A practical farmer himself he is well  suited to the work of the department of agriculture and his long  careful business training well fits  him for the chair of finance.  Taken all in all the cabinet  changes are commendable and  should create a new source of  stre ngth for the McBride government.  to appreciate the rights of the  people and shows a distinct feeling of friendliness towards those  institutions that promote freedom and happiness. King  Manuel in a message to the people said that his withdrawal  must not be accepted as.an abdication but from the present appearances it loooks as though  the republic has come to stay  and that the Portuguese will  abide by the will of the latest  government. The segregation  of the church and state is commendable but the government  must be careful in its methods  lest it abuses the religious freedom of its people. Time will  right many wrongs and if Portugal is happier and more cenlent-  ed under the state of republic  then let us all join in wishing  God speed to that new- republic  and its leaders.  hand to another and for that  reason these "official denials"  are as plentiful as flies in summer time.

The new rules for rugby are of  such a character as to almost  make the old fans think that they  are in a new game altogether.  In the eastern rugby scores  last week Montreal beat the Argonauts, Hamilton Tigers won  from Toronto (Intercollegiate )  beat Mcgill.  There promises to be two more  professional lacrosse teams in the  series next year. They are Victoria and the Vancouver Shamrocks.    The more the merrier.  Martin Sheridan has been  hanging up a new record for  throwing the disc and now he can  sit back and see the other aspirants try to equal it.  The meet of the Vancouver  Jockey club which has been in  progress atMinoru park this week  has been productive of some real  genuine excitement for the horsemen. One day four of the favorites  -won and the bookies did not like-  it at all.  down to defeat on their own  grounds. Their defeat was brought by the All- Stars,, a team  made up of Vancouver and National players. It was a great  game but press cities say that  for oncG the Salmon Bellies were  out-classed. The score was 5 to  3 and it well represents the play  and the fortunate part of the  affair was that the game was remarkably clean there being but  two penalties. The going was  somewhat heavy the ground was  a little wet. The attendance  was 2500 and it was the last  game of the season. The Nationals will return quietly to  their homes in Montreal without  a single game chalked to their  credit.
