 J-fi  p  m  I*  I  ^Vol. 1, No   39  MERRITT, B. C.   NOVEMBER 11, 1910  .Price 5 Cents  Presentation and Banquet  Tendered to S. L. Smith  . Popular   Bank   Managar  on  His Retirement Banqueted  at Coldwater Hotel  ,.   When  a man  leaves a   com-  , munity  it is pleasing to know  -that   he carries  with  him   the  -good will and best wishes of his  fellow citizens.    It gladdens  a  man's heart to know that he is  ' affectionately   regarded   and   it  brightens   his    life   for   future  activities it matters  not where  his lot may be cast.    This was  *; true of S. L, Smith, late manager  * of the  Bank  of  Montreal,   and  who has gone to Vancouver to  take charge of the Westminster  Ave. branch of the bank.  ��     Mr. Smith was  the  guest of  honor at a banquet in the Cold-  Water hotel last Friday evening  when representative business and  professional men gathered to tell  ' of the esteem in which they held  him and  to  bid  him  a  forma  adieu.     A  pleasant  feature   of  . the evening was the presentation  of   a beautiful gold  chain   and  locket.     G. B. Armstrong made  the presentatton   in   his   usual  ' graceful style.    The locket was  t handsomely engraved  with  the  ; words "Presented to S. L. Smith  by his Merritt friends, Merritt,  Nov. 4, 1910."      ..    "��,      .  -. Mr.   Smith   replied feelingly.  He was sorry  to  leave Merritt  and he hoped to be able to return  frequently   and   to    renew   old  friendships.     He   knew, of   no  place where had received better  treatment and it would always  be fond memories he could recall  when thinking of his old friends  in   Merritt.     Speaking   of the  town Mr. Smith was sanguine of  a wonderful growth.    He  contrasted conditions of today with  those that obtained when he first  came to Merritt and pictured the  wonderful progress and development that had ensued.     ' 'I am  glad that I am not going far away  because I can come back and see  "you,often and never will I forget  the many kindnesses  you  have  shown  me during my  stay   in  your midst."   has gone away feeling happier  than when he came and--appreciative of the fact ]that he can  come back at will and find the  same friendships even more  secure.  ; FUTURE IS BRIGHT  J. S. Winters of Vancouver  arrived in the city last night and  will spend the week end looking  over the valley and familarizing  himself as to the Coal industry.  "Your climate here is simply  great, a more ideal site for a city  I have never seen and with your  coal mines situated as they are  and the large agricutural lands'  tribtuary to the town nothing can  retard the growth of Merritt'' is  the way Mr. Winters expressed  himself in conservation with a  News represntative.

The health of: "The  King and Governor - General"  were enthusiastically honored  after which the  toast to  "Our  Guest', was drunk.    When Mr.  Smith arose to speak   he   was  greeted with musical honors. ���  ���' The speakers were in a happy  strain and many  were the expressions of regret occasioned by  Mr. Smith's  departure and the  genial good wishes uttered in his  behalf.

The mass meeting of Conservatives of Nicola valley called  for last Saturday night to select  a candidate to represent Nicola  valley at the nominating conver-  tion for Yale riding at Spences  Bridge on Friday did not produce  any results. r y   -  In point of numbers the mpet-  ing was the greatest in thehistory  of the valley, Menzies' hall being  filled to capacity. They were  there from Aspen Grove and  Tulameen as well as from points  in the lower part of the valley  and Meriitt and Nicola were out  in force.  The reason for adjourning  the meeting could not be v -j"  understood and it is the popular  opinion that it was the fruition  of a plan that Lad been in making.  Color was lent to this theory b'e-  cause of the men who propo'sed  the adj our ment.

RICHARD McBRIDE  The impression that Hon.  ;Riphard McBride will soon become leader of the Conservative  forces at Ottawa is gaining  .���strength through, the , press.,  British Columbia can ill afford to  sacrifice Mr. McBride at this  moment and it would be poor  policy for Mr. McBride to leave  just now.  The fact of the matter is that  Sir. Wilfrid Laurier will., go  through another election and he  will'likely win. But that will be  his last for he will retire from  the leadership, of the1 government almost immediately afterwards. . , I    1 . c r  \    ;Hon.  Richard McBride,  if he  -. gotes at all, will 96 into the fed-  . erapl arena just about the time  that Sir Wilfrid Laurier retires.  I H'   will lead the Conservative  . hqst to victory and' will guide  * the -destinies of the government.  Th$t he is well fitted for the  superior office cannot be denied  ; and   his   wonderful   success   in  - this province will largely increase  ; his^prestige.    There is an oppor-  ; tune moment for all-things <and  1 the' opportune moment for Mr.  McBride to enter federal politics  , will be about the hour when Sir  Wilfrid Laurier retires.  Discussing Mr. McBride's  position the Toronto News furnishes the following interesting  comment:  "Mr.. McBride, of British  Coiumhia, has become almost a  national figure although he is  only at the beginning of his  career. He has rescued the  affairs of his province from chaos.  He has established stable and  continuous government. _ He has  restored the provincial finances.  He has almost erased the memory of feeble coalitions and hopeless incompetence. He has charm  of:* manner, an impressive presence and that personal magnetism jwhichjc_o_ntribu_t_es_so_greatly:  to vpolitical success. Under his  leadership; the conservative party  hidlds almost every seat in.the  Legislature, and has left to the  Ottawa government only a single  constituency in the province.  He enjoys the confidence of all  classes and he seems to be equal  to'any occasion. Only a man of  breadth of mind and wholesome  tefoiper could have taken his attitude toward Sir Wilfrid Laurier  wKen the Federal Prime Minister  visited the coast a few months  ago. What is far more to his  credit is the admission on all  : h^nds that he is giving British  Columbia enconomical, straightforward and progressive government. He is using,his power  wisely and.soberly, arid, repaying  the confidence of the/prbvince  With an active and? capable administration of its faffa^rs:"i. He  serves a noble provii^er'to be  perhaps the wealthiest in"'the  "Confederation, and if he con-  ^jtiues as he, has begun; he will  e_*tablish standards? which will  make any, relapse into the feeble,  slovenly, or corrupt methods Very  difficult. Altogether , .the West  has leaders equal to its problems  and the���<��� Corservativ%,pariy. certainly has no need to fear comparison with its opponents."  THE JOINT MEETING.  The joint meeting   called' to  choose a candidate to represent  Nicola valley in the nominating  convention on Friday did not  produce any results. The two  local candidates will go to the  convention and the prospects of  success for either of them is considerably lessened.  It was a patent fact that there  were certain interests opposed  to the general scheme of the  joint meeting. That was evident at the committee meeting  in Nicola on Tuesday and it begins to look as though plans  were well and deeply laid to  wreck the meeting.  The whole system of the meeting was bad as far as procedure  was concerned. The plan of the  committee to have the pledge at  the door where all who entered  would have to sign was ignored  and the result was that the meeting developed into one of a public character rather than a party  convention.  It was known that there were  many Liberal in the hall but  they had come from far and near  and if the pledge had been presented at the door they would  have been thus excluded..  In the first place the resolution  passed at the joint committee  meeting in Nicola or at least the  resolution purporting to be that  should, never have come before  the convention. The committee  had made arrangements for the  pledge arid other considerations,  but the arrangements were almost wholly ignored.  The best policy would have  been to adjourn for fifteen minutes ' until the pledges were circulated and signed and' then it  would have been - known who  was qualified to vote in the  meeting. As it was there were  many/who did not even have a  vote in the riding but they were  apparently brought there for a  purpose and the purpose was fulfilled.'  The motion to adjourn was  wholly, illegal because many  voted for it who were not qualified to vote. But the destruction  of the lirieeting was to all intents  and purposes well planned and  the men who brought about the  adjournment were in sympathy  with the forces who organized  the general plan.  THE B. C. HORSE  There is* a suggestion and it  seems to be fairly well founded  that an effort was made to use  the members of the British  Columbia Horse for political purposes.  If this is true and there is a  strong suspicion that it is then  it"is"rhature"time"thatthegovern^  ment- interfered. The local  squadron of the British Columbia Horse is an important organization. We have always shared  its sympathies and are confident  that properly conducted it would  mean for the realization of the  purpose for which it was organized.:.  But the moment this corps is  used for political motives its usefulness ceases. The personnel  of the various troops comprising  tho local squadron represents  some of the brightest and most  successful young men in the district and we! place the general  rank above suspicion.  We may be wrong, and if so  we stand to be corrected, but we  have been apparently well informed and if our information is  correct then we can but denounce  the method and appeal to the  good sense and judgment of the  men themselves to not yield to  such wrongful influences.  LAURIER'S REVERSE  The defeat of the Laurier candidate in the bye-election in  Drummond, Athabasca, is not  without significance. The home  of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and a constituency around which all the  influences of the federal government have been cast it comes as  a crushing blow to the Laurier  administration that its candidate  should be refused by the electoi-s.  The naval policy was the issue  on which the campaign was  fought and it was evident that  the policy of the government did  not meet with favor. Some take  it that Laurier's influence in  Quebec is waning and there may  be considerable truth in this  theory because it stands to reason that the voting force would  have been true to the government  The very fact that bye-elections  as a rule go with the government  adds to the general surprise and  we can but accept the result at  its true value and foresee a lessening of the influence of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier in his native  province.

HOLD MEETING  _  An electric light plant for Mer-  ritT'is^almost a certainty. A  meeting, of the Merritt\ Water,  Light and Power Company was  held last Monday when financial  arrangements were made whereby, subject to ratification at a  meeting to be held next Monday,  a plant giving the city at least  '500 16 candle power lights will  be installed at, once. Street  lights will be part of the undertaking, so that the main business  center of the town, at least, will  not be in .darkness.  It is probable that within a  few weeks the stock of this company will be offered to the general public in anticipation of a  larger plant which will be  necessary before the winter of  1911. Electric light companies  have been paying propositions in  most of the interior towns of the  province and there is no reason  why the same should not apply  te Merritt.  Mr. George Munro, C. P. R.  roadmaster out of Kamloops, who  has retired from the service, was  recently presented by fellow railroad men with a very handsome  chair. The International Brotherhood of Railway Employees,  which made the gift, expressed  in the following . terms its appreciation of Mr. Munro:  "To Mr. George Munro: This  gift is in rememberance: of the  relations which have always existed between you and your subordinates. Your fairness and  hotesty of purpose have endeared you to all of us and we regret  the severance of our association  as co-workers, although our regret is minimized by the thought  that you are retiring to enjoy a  well earned rest. We hope that  you will live long to enjoy the  use of the accompanying token of  our appreciation and while doing  so you will remember the givers  as they hope to be remembered."  m ���  CRIPPEN REPRIEVED  Home Secretary Winston  Churchill ordered a postponement  of the excution of Dr. Crippen,  who was to be hanged Tuesday.

THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, November 11,  1910  UNREST IN CAMP OF LIBERALS  Byefelection  in IQuefeec   Last   Week  Source  of   Much  Discussion  at   Ottawa.  ) Ottawa, Nov. 10.���The signs  [oi great.unrest in the Liberal  icamp Here is the sole topic of  '��� /conversation among the govern-  Iment supporters and Conservative members who are arriving  'for the approaching parliamentary session. The election in  ' Drummond - Arthabaska   is   the  ��� source of much of the discussion.  That it  is  a great blow to the  ;";personal prestige of Sir Wilfrid  ^Laurier is not denied by even  \-Xhe most ardent supporters.     It  ��� has caused a drastic halt in the  cabinet   reorganization   plans  "which were well under way  '.���when the   Laurier  mount fell at  ��� the Arthabaska hurdle. It had  . been decided  that Hon.  Sidney  -:,Fisher would be elevated to the  ^���senate to assume the leadership  | or-that body, but this plan has  | been set aside as it is recognized  '<; that to open another Quebec  ���"' riding with the tide of French-  *'* .Canadian sentiment running  "'anti-navy" is   merely courting  ��� another defeat. At present the  < leadership in  the Upper  House  ��� is centered in Sir Richard Cart-  . wright, upon whom the infirmi-  1 ties of age are weighted. Mr.  . Fisher is. known to have been  -.  willing     to   seek     comparative  peace in the Senate, but nothing  I canbe done now until the cam-  : paign on naval education which  -. the Liberal leaders are coniem-  , plating is thoroughly opened in  1 the-.province of Quebec,  '���"' Other cabinet changes are  . mooted, which, however, do not  : affect] the province of Quebec.  J The portfolio of trade and com-  -merce is very likely to return to  the Commons. It has been held  I for some years by the veteran  ' Cartwright, but it is now under-  ,." stood that the valiant knight is  '" willing to lay down the portfolio.  �� The name of Hugh Guthrie, M.  j P., for North Wellington, is  ' freely mentioned as the success-  ; or of Sir Richard. Then there is  r.3��._ M.- Macdonald, .who, it is  \  said, is to succeed Sir  Frederick  Borden at an early date as min-  ! ister of militia and defence.  \ This rumor is most persistent, as  j it is expected the report of Gen-  i eral.Sir ��� John French will end  5 the^ ministerial career of the  \ ""present head of the" beplumed  " and befeathered department.  ..-It was learned today upon  ! practically unquestioned author-  - ity that Mr. R.

These are:  Aldergrove: The demonstration orchard.for the South Fraser  Valley to be located upon the  property of Fraser Valley Nurseries Co., Ltd., the site comprising five acres on the Jack:.  man road, and being a part of  the Clark Broth -rs' homestead  of eighty acres, purchased by the  Nurseries company last year.  The orchard will be planted lithe spring, chiefly with apples  and pears.  Hammond: The orchard for  this section to be located on the  John Laity farmstead, compris7  ing five acres of well situated  land, with typical deep soil and  generally favorable conditions.  . Kamloops: The orchard of  approximately five acres, presenting typical characteristics of the  district, to be located on the prop:  erty of the British Columbia Fruit  Lands Co., where exceptionally  favorable conditions to the purposes are found.  Shuswap: The orchard, of approximately five acres of typical  soil, etc., to be located on the old  Chase property.  Salmon Arm: The orchard to  be located , on the ranch of R.  Turner, where all desired conditions are met with.  The work of slection is now  going forward with greater rapidity, and other final slections for  a number of districts may be looked for.in the very near future.  _'.*t  SOFT COIN FOR JOHNSON  Chicago, Nov. 10. ���Jack Johnson, world's heavy weight champion, with a $20,000 guarantee  offered, is likely to go to Paris  to show someL.of the; French and  English fighters that there are a  few ' kinks in the fight game  with which they are not yet  familiar. .  Johnson has received a cable  from Paris making the big offer,  with round trip transportation  for four, and has started East to  spend a couple of weeks in New  York.  "I will be in England in April  anyway," said Johnson, "so  might as well skip over, collect  the coin, and give the Parisians  a glimpse of the real stuff. Just  whom I meet is of little concern.  I hope they uncover something  classy; it would liven things up,  for I see  no chance  of a good  bout in this country.  The owners of the Monarch  mine near Field will next season  erect a 50-ton concentrator and  a zinc separating plant.

Before an orchard is located, the  officials of the Agricultural De-  p ir'tment are required to be fully  convinced not only that the site  is one in which all characteristic  conditions of the district to be  served are congregated, but also  that the property owner upon  whose land the orchard is placed  * cared for,   shall be a person of  1 l        ' i" .,  I   have opening  up  a   Lumber   Yard   on  Voght ..iStreeV just, across  from  the   C.
