 C... *_B__r;'_.  '7 77^^S^ri'7..> %lyyv -?;  Vol. 1, No   40  MERRITT, B. C.   NOVEMBER 18, 1910  U:t.  ���>-V  Price 5 Cents  erritt  ave Electric Lighting  Stuart Henderson Refused  Wouldn't Accept Nomination  Told the Convention That He  Would Not be Football  As stated in the columns of The  News two weeks ago there will  be no contest in Yale riding1 as  the Liberals will not have a man  in the field. T. E. Julien, the  ��� Independent candidate, will likely withdraw as it would be impossible for him to save his deposit. Nomination has been fixed  for Saturday, November 26, and  the election two days later on  Monday, November 28.  ALiberal convention was called  for Spences Bridge  last Tuesday  evening, but though  the various  parts of the  riding were   well  represented no nomination was  made.    Ashcroft stood out for  Henderson  and would take   no  other.    Nicola and  other parts  wanted   Honest   John    Oliver.  Merritt strongly opposed a contest.    Henderson  refused to be  a candidate unless he could secure  united   support.      Mr.  Oliver  s-: would not tamper.with.it as long  ' as Mr.   Henderson was in   chat  mood and  thus it ended.     The  . riding will go by default and Mr.  Lucas will'be elected by acclamation.  The correspondent of The News  -at   Spences   Bridge   sends   the  following story of the convention:  Nicola sent down  three delegates to support Oliver's nomination.    The meeting had hardly  convened .when    one   of   these  delegates proposed   Mr.   Oliver  and the discussion that followed  was interesting.  Stuart Henderson ' refused to  run against his former leader.  Speaking of the Nicola proposal  he said in part: "You will live  up there in the back woods and  ���iearn~nothingr'' " ""*" = '~~  Carrington, of Nicola, on behalf of the "backwoods"-"Henderson should have kept us  posted.''  It was moved that John Oliver  be elected unanimously. No  seconder materialized.  Leitch   of  Ashcroft���"It's   a  fine thing that no Liberal candidate would accept the nomination for Yale and this riding has  always returned Liberals.    Henderson will  run  if unanimously  elected.    Oliver will not stand."  Lyons, on behalf of the Yale  end���"Henderson is the man."  Secretary   Richardson   urged  that    Henderson     be    chosen.  , "Henderson  was   defeated   but  would run right now."  Carrington��� "I   Henderson is  the right man we are willing to  ; abide by him.    Nicola is not going to rush the meeting or cause  a split."\y.:-y  Leitch���"I suggest that Nicola  retire and consider Henderson's  nomination."  Henderson ��� "I definitely .refuse to stand against opposition."  Popperwell���"In the east part  of the rididg John Oliver was  never mentioned. If you can't  get Henderson stay at home.  Leitch ��� "What support can  Nicola guarantee for Henderson?"  Carrington���"Cannot guarantee the whole of Liberals for  Henderson bur some Conserva  tives for Oliver."  Leitch proposed one ballot for  John Oliver.  Jackman, of Spences Bridge���  "Henderson or no contest."  George Ward seconded but no  vote was taken.  Nicola complained that it had  not been properly notified and  Popperwell wanted to know why  this was so.  Henderson��� "Letters and. telegrams were sent to all parts of  the riding."  Carrington���'The only message  received was to elect delegates  to the convention. There was  no mention of candidates."  Popperwell ��� ' 'Nicola has already told us that they will be  content to abide by the unanimous decision of the convention.  Have they any doubt as to the  wish of the majority?"  Henderson ���"I repeat that I  will not stand against opposition."  Mr. Leitch read a letter from  Mammet Lake to, the effect that  the .Tetters and* telegrams had  been received. "Why did not  Nicola receive theirs?"  Carrington���"I am willing to  withdraw my motion. We. understood that Murphy was to be  the opponent,"  Popperwell ��� ' 'Do we understand you to support Henderson?"  Henderson���"I have been in  politics for six years. I have no  desire to get up a bye-election  unless I am uuanimously supported. I will not be 'mealy-  mouthed'. I feel hostile at the  personality of the delegation  sent to oppose me. I have never  had proper support from the constituency and have carried it as  much by my own personality_as_  by Liberal support. Certain  men at Nicola would nominate  Oliver who would laugh at them  and then they would turn and  ask me to swallow such a position. I do not intend to be such  a football. No thank you, gentlemen.    I refuse."  Mr. Leitch moved an adjournment and affairs were left at a  standstill. o  night a verdict was returned exonerating the train crew from aU  responsibility and fixing the death  as accidental, due to misadventr  ure.  When the body was found near  the east swith in the local yards  it was terribly mangled. The head,  was almost severed from the  body and a portion of the skull  was missing as well as parts of  the man's feet. The mutilation  almost precluded recognition and  it was some time before his name  could be ascertained. I  ' Other parts of the body were  found near the mill switch below  Canford and it was evident that  the man after being caught in;  in the wheel was dragged for  over twelve miles. The remains  have been placed in charge of  friends.  LOCAL AND DISTRICT  J. R. Saunders is in Merritt  "from Greenwood arranging for a  branch of the Hunter-Kendrick  ;Co.

The corps was  fully represented and there were  many citizens in attendance as  well.  ,  The hours were whiled away  in pleasure and interest and the  function was voted to be one of  the best of the season. Major  Chas. Flick was in the chair and  there was an abundance of good  talent available, so much so that  there was not a dull moment in  the whole evening.  Addresses were delivered by  Major Flick, G. B. Armstrong  and others. Songs were furnished by Corpl. Ed. Pierce, Lou  Pierce, Trooper Smith, Sgt. John  Smith, Sgt. Tom Smith, Capt.

NICOLA TO PRINCETON  " At the -last meeting of the  Princeton Board of Trade a resolution was passed asking for the  appropriation of money by the  government to complete the One  mile road and thus give direct  communication with Nicola, effecting a saving of fifteen miles  in travel. The building of the  remaining_link_to__connect_the  Okanagan with the Similkameen  via the Fivemile road will also  be asked. The co-operation of  the Okanagan Board of Trade  as well as that of Nicola has been  asked.  Dragged for Over Twelve Miles  Beneath Wheels  of Train  Jack Home, an Indian living  on the Shulus reservation, met a  terrible death along the local  branch line of the C. P. R. Tuesday evening, his mangled body  being dragged beneath the  wheels for upwards of twelve  miles. When the train stopped  at Merritt station the gruesome  find was made.  Home boarded the train at  Spences Bridge and was riding  on an empty flat car. , Just how  he fell under the wheels is not  known but it is surmised that he  either fell while.trying to get off  the car near the Petit reserve or  he was thrown off by the action  of the train.

THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, November 18, 1910  1)'  Lucas Was Nominee of the Party  Will Contest Yale in Bye-Election  Spences  Bridge  Convention  Greatest  in  the  History  of  Conservatism.���Mr. Lucas Old Stager  in the Game.  Alexander Lucas has been  named to contest Yale riding in  the bye-election occasioned by  the retirement of Hon. Richard  McBride. The selectiou was  made at the nominating convention in Spences Bridge last  Friday night.  In point of numbers and enthusiasm the convention was the  greatest of its kind in the history  of old Yale. From Agassiz on  the" west, and from Pennies on  the east and frdm Cache Creek  to Aspen Grove they came.  There were in all the full complement, forty-nine delegates  and proxies, but two, of these  were disallowed thus reducing  the voting strength to forty-  seven.  It required two ballots to  determine the winner, the final  count giving Mr. Lucas a clear  majority of seven. Three names  went before the convention,  those of Alexander Lucas, of  Agassii; H. H. Matthews, of  Nicola; and S. N. Dancey, of  Merritt. There was a dispute  over the legality of certain cre^  deutials and proxies. The result  was that Mr. Dancey was de:  graved of six votes whereupon he  virtually withdrew from the contest-'though his mover and  seconder would not allow hirn to  withdraw his name. He went  down on the first ballot, however, leaving the final test to  Mes_=frs. Lucas and Matthews.  The count as it stood at the last  was,Lucas 27, Matthews 20.  The old war horse, the hero of  a score of political conflicts, Hon.  Charles Semlin, was voted to  the chair. Never has he appeared in better form for years  than he did Friday night and his  brief speech in reply to a resolution of thanks at the close of the  convention was a vigorous and  eloquent effort and went to show  &i*t the veteran had lost none  of his brilliancy. Dr. T. V.  Curtin was selected as secretary.  The appointment of the credential committee was the first  order of business. Acting upou  the suggestion of the chair the  cojiimitteee was confined to five  ah'd the appointees comprised G.  JjV Ransom, Merritt; John Mc-  _I|ae,_ Agassiz;_ John Abray, JNorth  Bend; H. S. Cleasby, Coutlee;  D. W. Rowlands, Ashcroft. The  convention was adjourned for  two hours awaiting the report  of the credential committee. A  discussion followed the introduction of the report but balloting was soon proceeded with,  scrutineers being appointed in  the persons of A. Stevenson and  D. W. Rowlands.  Following the announcement of  ,. the winner brief speeches were  ''delivered by the successful candidate as well asH.H. Matthews,  S. N. Dancey, A. L. Belyea and  John Jackson, M^L. A., of Midway. ��� It was evident from the  tone of the speeches that though  there had been a strenuous fight  for the nomination that the result was accepted in a spirit of  splendid unanimity and that the  Conservative party throughout  the riding would be fully united  to secure the election of Mr. Lucas  should a contest 'ensue.  Mr. Lucas is something of an  - old stager in the political game,  if experience counts for anything. Of late he registers froih  Agassiz, where he has a big farm  and is growing everything from  pumpkins to prize heifers. Back  in Ontario he started a public  career in the town of Alvinston,  where he was niayor and for five  years member of the county council   He was a candidate for East  Lambton for the Federal House  and then came West to Calgary in  1885. There he was editor and  proprietor of the Herald newspaper for five years. During this  period he appears to. have been  fairly active in other lines besides  his newspaper for he, was mayor  for two years, president of the  Board of Trade, chairman of the  School Boad and president of the  Conservative ..Association for Albert^ , In. the early 'nineties he  caught the British Columbia fever, came to? Kaslo, 'was police  magistrate and resigned to be  provincial organizer for the Conservative party, a position he  held for threjp years, during which  trine )ie gained a tremendous acquaintance with the people and  affairs of British Columbia. Resigning from this position he was  appointed mining recorder and  registrar of the Supreme Court at  Kaslo, resigned again to be travelling assessor for the government  and resigned again to go back to  the farm. Incidentally he became  possessed of two sons who are  bright young lawyers of Vanr  couver, but they are not yet iii  politics. Mr.'Lucas \3 not nearly  as old-looking as his experience  would indicate.  The announcement of his  resignatjon of the seat was made  by Hon. (Mr. McBride in a circu-  iar letter directly addressed to  the electors of Yale, which reads  as follows:  Gentlemen:���  In announcing to you my intention of resigning the position'of  Member for Yale in the Provincial  Legislature, I desire to express  my hearty thanks for the honor  you conferred on me at the genj-  eral election in. November, 1909;  by returning me as your representative, and; for the courtesy  andfgopd-will. that has ever since  characterizedVydur relations with  me. , :  In deciding to retain my seat  for the Victoria City Electoral  District, I wish to assure you  that I shall always retain the  keenest interest in the welfare  of Yale constituency and do my  utmost to second the efforts of  the member you select to succeed  me in-whatever-^will���make���for  the benefit of your district.  dying to the'general elections  last year coming so close to the  opening off'ihe session of the  legislature, I deemed it in your  best interests, conversant as I  was with the needs of Yale, to  postpone the time for my resignation, and I trust and believe  ydu will agi*ee with me that the  constituency has not suffered  from that cause/  In the past' year I have endeavored to the best of my ability  to look after your interests; and  I would , respectfully   ask that  you show your confidence in myself and my colleagues by electing as my successor a supporter  of the present government.  '..;. The policy of the government  of which I have the honor to be  the leader.is well known to you.  "With respect to rural constituencies   we have endeavored to  meet the wants of the people  and encourage more settlement  by generous and judicious expenditures   on   schools,    roads,  bridges an other public works,  commensurate with   the means  at our disposal.  We intend to pursue the same  course in the future���the ever  expanding revenue of the pro  virtce enabling us each year  more fully to carry out these  desirable ends which are doing  so much to assist in the development of the province.  It is perhaps hardly necessary  for me to recall to you the  various roads that have been  completed and grades improved  in Yale Riding during the year;  but I might refer to the fact  that among the other important  works provided for, there is the  sum of $15,000 reserved for the  purpose of the early construction  in Yale of a portion of the great  trunk road which will run from  the coast to connect with the  province of Alberta. A surveyor  has been in the field since last  August engaged in selecting the  best route with the most favorable grade. It is expected that  work will be proceeded with at  a very early date.  The highly successful arrangements which have brought about  the construction of the Canadian  Northern Railway and the Kettle  Valley Railway have gained for  the present provincial government the commendation of the  people; and the benefits which  Yale Riding will undoubtedly  receive from these great additions to the railway communication in the province is an additional reason for my confident  expectation that you will again  return as your member, at the  coming election, a supporter of  the government.  Again  thanking you  for the  confidence you have reposed, in  myself and my administration.  Yours respectfully,'  Richard McBride.  Private Tulion in  Men prepared for B.

The Misses Negrem are expected back soon after being at  the "coast for some months.  Joseph Food has returned  home after spending a few days  at Victoria.  Hughie McMillan came down  from Merritt last week and spent  a day renewing old acquaintances.  A stranger on Tuesday afternoon met with a serious accident  a train running over his leg.  Medical assistance was there in  about an hour, the leg being  taken off at the knee. He was  removed to Kamloops hospital.  the town has been completed.  There is no information to hand  as to bridge building or track  laying. The grade is finished to  Cardiff.

SAVONA  Two cars of cattle were shipped  from here to New Westminster  last Tuesday week and a couple  of cars left here on Monday for  the coast. A big shipment of  cattle from Mammette Lake will  be made on Dec. 6.  J. C. Shields is back from a  business trip  to  the Northwest.  Judges Leighton and McCartney had a- busy day on Saturday  last, three cases coming up before them. Jimmy Antoine, a  Deadman's Creek Indian,  charged with being drunk and  escaping from arrest, sentenced  to two weeks in gaol and ordered  to pay a fine of $10 and costs. A  drunken man who had teen put  off a westbound train was allowed to go as he had money in his  possession and was on his way to  a job. The judges strongly expressed the opinion that the  C. P. R. train crew had no right  to put the man off. In another  case of disorderly conduct the  accused was discharged on payment of costs. Provincial Constable Lee, who has just been  stationed here, acted as, prosecutor.  A C. N. R. survey party numbering some 14 or 15 members  reached here on Saturday. They  are now working in a westerly  direction.  H. L. Edmonds, of New Westminster, is expected here shortly  oii a visit to his sister, Mrs.  C. M. Marpole.  J.

'  ASHCROFT  The house famine in Ashcroft  is to be appeased. Lots are being placed on the market that  will precipitate active building  operations.  Potatoes are being shipped into the Quesnel and Barkerville  districts' to such an extent that  the local farmers have decided  to plant more of them next  year.  The wagon road from Black-  water to Barkerville has been  completed. It is a fine thoroughfare.  There has been good sleighing  in the Barkerville district.  Preparations are   well   under  way for the  big annual poultry  show to be held on December 28  29-30.  A dual tragedy was enacted at  Fort McCauley near Victoria,  when Gunner Ratcliff shot and  killed Corporal Bowlan, and  after standing at bay before an  armed detachment from the  Work Point garrison, sent to  effect his arrest, turned the rifle  upon himself and committed  suicide. Both men belonged to  No. 5 Company, Royal Canadian  Garrison Artillery.  Dr. H. S. Ford, one of the popular and best known young physicians of Vancouver, was found  dead on the shores of Jervis Inlet. He was a member of a hunting party and was returning to  camp alone. The cause of death  was given as exposure.  In the interests of the Candidature of  PRINCETON  The matter of incorporation is  becoming a live issue locally and  active steps may soon be taken.  Frank Bailey came over from  Merritt last week and will spend  two or three months in this district.    He went on to Hedley.  Work on the properties of the  Columbia Coal and Coke Co. is  progressing well. A tunnel is  being driven and buildings  erected and the diamond drill is  working all the time. The plant  is nearly all on the ground and  will soon.be placed.  The tunnel on the V.

Although the Steamboat Mountain district is the youngest gold  field in British Columbia, it is  already attaining stable conditions. Preparations are being  made for the prosecution of  development work on the Pacific  property situated four miles  south of the "town of Hope anc."**  two and one-half miles from  Steamboat Landing. The owner,  James Livingston, has just returned from the property. He  has many other interests in the  valley, .every part of which he  has visited, but it is of the  Pacific he has the highest hopes.  He says:  "We have an ore exposure on  the surface 500 feet in length,  varying in its width from six to  eighteen inches, carrying values,  all in gold, that range from $30  to $120 to the tori. In the hanging wall of a fifty-foot vein of  beautiful ledge matter the ore  resembles_that^of=.-_the^famous  Nickel Plate mine at Hedley. We  have crosscut the ore body at a  depth of seventy feet and found  the values increasing. It is one  of the most persistent veins ever  discovered in British Columbia,  and will undoubtedly make a  mine."  Mr. Livingston is arranging  for the winter's work on the  property, which will consist of  driving another crosscut to tap  the ore again at a further depth  of 120 feet.

It is nearly thirty  years since they were in power  and if they succeed in giving the  people good, stable government  they may stay for some little  time.  There are many reasons that  contributed to the Democratic  success. The Republican camp  has been a scene of unrest ever  since Roosevelt returned from  . the jungles of Africa. The party  has been rent in sunder and  there-'have been two distinct  factions, one, the Insurgents,  led by Roosevelt in person.  It cannot be denied but that  the disgruntled members of the  Republican party gave support  to' the Democrats and then, too,  the Aldrich tariff, the child of  the Republican administration,  and -which has aroused such widespread dissatisfaction, contributed to the result. The defeat  of Roosevelt's candidate in the  state of New York was a crushing-blow to the prestige, and  power of the former president  and many believe that the ver-  .' diet of the electors as a whole is  specially directed as a rebuke to  him. -. .; .....  Taken all in all the Democratic  . success   will   furnish   food   for  " thought.    It means that the Republican party is  disintegrated  . and-that the people are far from  pleased with the interference of  Roosevelt or it means that it was  time- for a change and the Democrats are now face to face with  an  opportunity   which, if   they  improve it, will give them new  life as a party and may provide  for them a lease of official life  much greater than  some anticipate at the present moment.  YALE BYE-ELECTION  The bye-election  in  Yale con-  stituency has been fixed for  November 28 and nomination  will take place two days previous.  Alexander Lucas has been selected as the candidate for the Conservative party and we cannot  but congratulate the party upon  the choice.  The retirement of Hon.Richard  McBHde is a matter of regret but  after all it was the only course  that the premier could follow.  His home and interests are in  ' Victoria and his official duties as  head of the provincial govern-  ;' merit demand his presence in the  capital.  \ But Yale has reaped well from  hie representation and we know  and feel that the same kindly  interest in the welfare of the  constituency will be continued.  The circular letter which was  sent to the various electors briefly stated his position and we can  but concur in the text and purport of the letter.  Mr. Lucas has had a large ex-  ��� perience in public life and his  -splendid fitness for the office as  well as his familiarity with the  requirements of the riding will  combine to give efficiency to his  services. He lives at one end  of the riding, it is true, but we  know that Nicola valley will see  as much, and possibly more, of  him than Agassiz. He is one of  those men who, as representative,  keeps well in  touch  with  The fatal accident in the vicinity of the C. P. R. station Tuesday night emphasizes the need  of better restriction with reference to children playing in that  neighborhood. Little children  hafdlyout~of"the cradle are aP  lowed to run at will along the  tracks and through the yards  and an accident seems almost  inevitable unless this practice is  stopped. Parents are responsible  and they should see to it that  they keep their children away  from the tracks. Engines are  shunting back and forth all day  long and it requires a diligent  watch on the part of the train  crews to avert accidents. In  their search for pleasure the  little ones clamber over the cars  and it is just as probable as not  that one of these days one of  Merritt's home will be mourning  the loss of a loved one but the  responsibility will have to be  fixed on the parents themselves.  AN EXPLANATION  To the Electors of Nicola Valley,  Sirs: In view of the fact that  many throughout the district are  holding me personally responsible for the defeat of the ambition of Nicola valley to have  its own candidate in the ensuing  bye-election in Yale, I believe  that it is only right and just that  I should state my position clearly  and fully so as to allay any misapprehension which I know  exists at the present moment.  I entered the field as a candidate for the nomination only at  the solicitation of some of my  best frjends,   though previously  his constituents and after all it  is the only reasonable method  through which a member can  present the needs of his people  intelligently to the powers at  Victoria.  Mr. LucaF will travel considerably through the riding and will  be in constant communion with  his electors and it will not be  long before Yale will realize that  in him it will have a representative who will be useful in the  deepest and broadest sense of  the word.  We do not anticipate a contest.  In fact it begins to look as though  Mr. Lucas would be elected by  acclamation. But while not courting a fight we do not fear it because  we  know  that  the good  people   of Yale are  more than  satisfied with the record of the  present   government    and   that  they realize that it is imperative  that a   government representative be sent to Victoria in succession to Hon. Richard McBride.  It is safe to greet Mr. Lucas as  the next member for Yale.    We  wish him success in  his  labors  and we hope and trust that the  electors will ever be in sympathy  with   his   efforts   because they  assuredly will be directed to the  best interests and welfare of the  constituency  that he will  have  the honor to represent.  LIGHTING SYSTEM  The announcement that the  installation of a lighting system  in Merritt will be proceeded with  immediately makes good reading  for the citizens of this enterprising town. .  Merritt wants electric light and  wants it badly. The company  that has the proect in hand  numbers some of Merritt's most  enterprising and progressive citizens and we feel perfectly assured "in leaving the matter to  them.  When, the lighting system is  installed the next problem will  be that of water and sewerage.  The sanitary" conditions of the  town are anything but satisfactory and while a better enforcement of the health laws would  effect an improvement satisfaction will not be gained permanently until a proper system  of sewage disposal is available.  But we'' must be content with  one thing at a time and just  now it is the question of lighting  the town.  I was strongly opposed to participation in the fight. I have  fought on a good honest basis,  fairly and squarely, and I challenge any man to show me to  the contrary. I lost out, but I  have accepted the reverse in the  best of spirit and the Conservative party and its candidate will  find me amongst the most enthusiastic workers should a contest ensue.  As to Mr. Matthews I have  naught but the very highest, regard and the kindliest feelings  for him. As I told him at the  close of the convention "if they  were all as square and honest as  he, things would certainly be  different." He fights a good  clean fight and in all his dealings  is honest and above board.  At the last meeting of the  Merritt, Middlesboro and District Conservative Association  the delegates were appointed to  attend the nominating convention. I was fortunate in securing a majority of those delegates by fair and legal means.  The appointments were in line  with the appointments of previous years and legal in every  respect. We even followed out  the suggestion of the chairman  to appoint local men as far as we  possibly could.  But the work of this meeting  was   almost   completely undone  by parties who resorted to tac-  tice that were questionable to say  the least. Delegates were given  credentials that never came  through the channel of an organized meeting. Others received  privileges from a source that  could not be accepted as legal  and taken altogether I was deprived of at least six delegates  who by every right of law and  constitution belonged to me. Mr.  Matthews personally opposed the  tactics of these over zealous  workers in more than one instance, but to no avail. It is not  necessary for me to discuss hei'e  the circumstances and details  surrounding the efforts of these  tacticians but suffice to say that  in one polling place alone they  opposed the appointment of a  delegate in spite of the fact that  the Conservatives of that division were fully represented at  the district meeting. They appointed another delegate but  later accepted the proxy of the  delegate named at the district  meeting in their own behalf.  This is but one evidence of their  inconsistency.  I was asked to support Mr.  Matthews on the second ballot  and assured my friends that if  they dealt fairly with me that I  would be only too glad to do so.  Eight delegates from mainline  points came instructed to support  me. This with eleven from the  valley would have given me nineteen votes on the first ballot.  When the report of the credential committee was presented to  the convention it was then I  knew that I had lost at least  seven votes, the Yale proxy  having been cancelled as well.  It was my purpose to withdraw there and then but my  mover and seconder refused. I  then asked those from mainline  points to support their second  choice as I was completely out of  it. Mr. Flann, of Camp 16, advised me that their s-.cohd choice  was Mr. Lucas. My nomination  was to have been moved by Mr.  Parnaby of Hope, but under the  circumstances I released him  from that duty.  I stated my position to the convention at the time, but the late  hour precluded discussion. I left  the convention after depositing  my proxy with one of my supporters fully knowing that I  would have very few votes and  still anxious to withdraw from  the contest. With nineteen  votes on the first ballot I looked  to further valley support on the  second ballot and this would  have given me the nomination  and the valley a candidate.  That Mr. Matthews would have  received the nomination had  some of my supporters voted for  him on the second ballot cannot  be gainsaid, but I left the matter entirely to their own judgment and it was generally known  that they were laboring under a  resentment occasioned by the unfair treatment ���: that had been  meted but to me. They refused  to forego that resentment.  Some, go as far as to say that  I was not true to the valley, but  that is a little unfair. I take  second place to no1 man in enthusiasm and zeal in promoting  the interests of Nicola valley.  The situation only emphasizes  the necessity of sending a man  to the convention with the solid  backing of . the valley behind  him. To split up the vote is  suicidal. I asked some of Mr.  Matthews' supporters if they  would vote for me on the second  ballot and they were rather indifferent though assuring me  that they would consider the  matter. But they were anxious  that they would, secure my support for him on the second  ballot. An unfortunate feature  of the whole affair was the refusal of the president of the  Merritt, Middlesboro and District  Conservative Association t o  stand by the constitution of the  association of which lie is the  head.  Personally I would liked 'to  have seen a valley man secure  [Continued on Page 5]  NICOLA VALLEY INVESTMENT & LAND  CO., LIMITED  Offices Corner Quilchena and Voght Streets.

That the Jeanne Russell company is one of the most popular  theatrical  organizations  on  the  road has  been   demonstrated to  the complete satisfaction of the  local public.    Coming to Merritt  for three nights the engagement  was enlarged so as to keep them  here over Tuesday night.   Every  member of the cast is a star and  in   the  various  productions  the  best of satisfaction  was  given  and should  the  company desire  to revisit  Merritt they  will  be  assured  of a   large   patronage.  The  repertoire  comprises  some  of the best plays on  the  stage  today    and     the    ability'   and  efficiency  with  which  they are  produced by the Jeanne Russell  company awakens a deep appreciation for  the  players and the  play.

The Fraser ranch, formerly  the property of George and  William McCulloch and located  in the Otter valley, will be  under the management of Dan  McKay, the appointment having  been made last week.  The work crews of the C. P. R.  are having a busy time of it. The  big steam shovel is digging earth  out of the big cut on the road  between Merritt and Coutlee,  it being hauled up along the line  and is used for grading. The  opening of the crossing at the end  of Quilchena 'Ave. is under way  and much of the earth is necessary for building up the crossing.  NEW SHOEMAKER  George McDonald has come to  Merritt from  Ashcroft and will  open up a shoe  repair shop.    A  small building is bieng erected on  Voght   street   near  the   C.P.R  tracks.      Mr.   McDonald5 is no  stranger to the people of Merritt  bieng well    known to many of  them.    He lived   for years   in  Kamloops  previous  to  going to  Ashcroft.    He is a good man at  his trade and wherever he has'  gone has always given satisfaction.    Speaking of, his departure  from Ashcroft, The Journal says:  ' 'Everyone in  Ashcroft will regret to hear of the departure of  shoemaker,    George   McDonald,;  who left town today for Merritt  where he will continue his trade.

McDonald, of the contracting firm of Lungo & McDonald, returned Monday night  from a trip to Butte, Mont., and  other points across the border.  Mr. McDonald's family is now  living in the company's camp up  the Coldwater river about 26  miles from town.  The motor plonghs from Beaver  ranch are working on R. H. Win-  ney's land near Nicola. It is  possible for these machines to  plough from five to seven acres  of land every day and they effect  a wonderful saving in time for  the farmer. Mr. Meiville proposes to undertake contract work  with them next season.  Jos. Food who recently made  application for a wholesale liquor  license for Merritt has withdrawn  the application and will advertise  in a different form at the end of  the present month. It is general  ly con ceded^hat Merritt will  shortly have a wholesale liquor  house.  A new. bell has been installed  in the belfry of the Methodist  church and will in future summon  the worshippers to prayer. "It  seems more like a church when  you listen to that bell," declared  one member of congregation and  after all he is right.  The sub-committees appointed  in connection with the general  hospital project are getting to  work. The site committee is  grappling with the question of  site but it is not unlikely that  the Blair offer will be accepted.

Warren, president of the  Kettle Valley railway, returned  to Penticton by Tuesday morning's train after spending several  days in this district. Mr. Warren  is well satisfied with the progress  of the work on this end of the  construction. "They are doing  better all the time, ���' he told The  News. "Most of the difficulties  have been removed and it should  be clear sailing from now on."  John Hutchison is a versatile  man. He plays real estate and  insurance and almost everything  that produces the sustenance of  life. But his latest role is that  of counsel for the defence in a  hearing at the local police court  the other day. A Swede was  charged'withrindecent^exposure  and he employed the services of  "Hutch." The court handed  down a convicton but the opinion  of the defence was that.the fine  was not very exorbitant.  -<��� There was no quorum for the  3tfard of Trade meeting last  week with the result that a  special meeting will be called in  the course of a few days. The  matter of incorporation will be  formally discussed as it is understood that the lists will be freely  signed and that the scheme is  assured of success.  John Davis, who was suspected  of supplying the liquor to the  Indian, Billy Squalkum in connection with the recent shooting  in self defence by James Sneddon,  has been committed for trial on  a perjury count. He is now in  Kamloops gaol. Davis was a witness in the inquest over the death  of Squalkum and the police claim  that he deliberately perjured himself when questioned as to supplying the liquor with which the  dead Indian became intoxicated.  When Conductor Charles  Sasseville left the local branch  he was succeeded by Conductor  Thomas Coughlin who has been  running on Nos. 96 and 97 on  the mainline. Mr. Strevens was  to have come to the branch but  the relieving of Conductor  George Hatch on a three months'  vacation will keep him on the  mainline. Mr. Coughlin is well  known to many of the local  travelling public and will be  well liked because of his congeniality and attractive personality.  TONIGHT'S DANCE  A   real, genuine   treat   is   in  store for the dance loving people  of Merritt this evening when the  Peerless Orchertra, outlaws from  the Jeanne Russell Co., will give  a dance in Menzies' hall.    Little  Beth Crall, who has already won  favor with the local public, will  sing one or two solos.      For a  child of her tender years little'  Beth is a marvel and some of her  character   sketches    would   do  credit to an artist of many years'  experience.    Mr. and Mrs. Crall  can    furnish    the   music   that  charms  and  those who   attend  this evening will enjoy a dance  as they never enjoyed one before.;  NEW MEMBER HERE  Alex. Lucas, Conservative can-  didate-in'the'ensuing^bye-election"  and next member for Yale, came  up to Merritt on Tuesday night's  train. He was accompanied by  his son, E. G. Lucas. Preliminary organization was discussed  with the leading Conservatives  and it was fully evident that  should a fight ensue Nicola valley  would give Mr. Lucas almost  united support. It is Mr. Lucas'  plan to visit various parts of his  constituency from time to time  and Merritt and Nicola as well  as other parts of the valley will  see much of him.  THE INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE  T. E. Julien, of Vancouver,  the Independent candidate in  the ensuing bye-election in Yale,  was in Merritt over the week end  and addressed a meeting in Hyland's hall Monday evening. Mr.  Julien is conscientious in his  criticism of the government  policy but he cannot succeed in  destroying the fact that the  government policy is sound and  businesslike and holds the favor  of the great bulk of the electors  not alone in Yale but throughout British Columbia.'

Richard McBride,  Premier of British  Columbia, in.  the Fruit Magazine.  "The First Canadian National  Apple Show at Vancouver came  at an opportune time, when the  f fcuit industry bf British Columbia was   receiving   such   widespread attention.  While all the  fruit districts of  Canada have  made encouraging  growth in the last decade, none  has    made   so   substantial   and  rapid a   progress   as   those   of  British    Columbia.     While   the  census of 1901  shows  that all  the fruit in British Columbia was  then grown on about 6,000 acres  of land, of which the apple occupied  two-thirds, the  total  area  devotedto fruit is today probably  in the  neighborhood  of 100,000  acres,   though accurate   figures  are^notyet to  hand.     This  industry . has   created  large   and  prosperous communities throughout the Province, and the great  "success which has  attended the  exhibits of fruit in  the Prairie  Provinces, the East, and the Old  Country proves the magnificent  quality of the  orchard products  of British Columbia. Many parts,  as in. the Okanagan, which were  only a.few years ago devoted to  cattle ranges,   and in  the Kootenay country, where the land at  one time was only  thought so be  fit for mining, have been devoted  to   fruit culture  with   splendid  success.  The shipments bf fruit for this  year'will total fully three times  those of any previous year.  As an outlet for our fruit the  Prairie Provinces furnish a ready  market, which can absorb many  times the present supply of fruit.  I believe that whereas the value  of the fruit was in 1902 not quite  $400,000, this year it is estimated  it will amount to the splendid  sum?'of about $2,000,000, an  eloquent proof of the growth of  the industry.  The work of those engaged in  the industry has received the  careful assistance of the Provincial Government, with a view  of encouraging it, as far as possible", along right lines. Not only  has there been a, large expenditure on roads and other transportation facilities, but the  Water Act, its enforcement for  the'protection of rights of water  users in irrigation districts, and  the'creation and development of  the fruit branch of the Department of Agriculture for the technical assistance of fruit growers  in the study of their business,  ^haye-done^mueh=towards=ad-  vancing the orchard industry.  The Government has seen the  need for giving information on  all features of this work, and  through the Department of  Agriculture is giving technical  instruction' in tree-planting,  pruning, spraying, irrigation,  fruit thinning, picking and packing, so that the settler maj^ procure all available information on  fruit suited to his particular district. This work will be extended, as the results so far have  proven exceedingly beneficial.  \ Another feature that the Government is inaugurating is that  of establishing demonstration  orchards throughout the province  for the purpose of instruction in  the best commercial methods of  fruitgrowing as suited to each  particular district.  One most satisfactory feature  has been the work of the Board  of Horticulture, dealing principally with the inspection of  nursery stock and fruit coming  in^to'the Province. The magnitude of this work may be noted  from the fact that this year some  four millions of trees and shrubs  will be inspected.  Another feature is the assistance given td our fruit growers  by the requirement of nurserymen doing business in the Province to guarantee that the  stock supplied is true to name.  I think it cannot be questioned  that the publicity work of the  Government, done through the  Department of Agriculture, has  achieved remarkable results,  which'may be noted from the  success attending the exhibition  of fruit, in Great Britain especially, where we have won at  the great shows there the highest awards for excellence. This,  in addition to the lectures by  m?n .experienced in the business,  who are able to give exact information, has made a name for  British Columbia fruit in the  Old Country.  The very satisfactory results  so far attained prove conclusively the magnificent future in  store for this exceedingly productive branch ot industry in  British Columbia.  In closing, let me express my  congratulations that there is  published today so creditable; a  publication as The Fruit Magazine, exclusively devoted to the  truit industry.  north 80 chains, thenee east 80 chains,  thence south 80 chains, thence west 80  chains to point of commencement containing 640 acres more or less.

"^ir: My attention has been  drawn to an article headed "The  B. C. Horse," published in your  issue of Nov. 11. .  The general- trend of your  article would lead the most casual  reader to believe* that the officers  had used their, influence, as  soldiers, for political purposes.  There never has been and never  will be any manipulation of the  B. C. Horse for political purposes while I have the honor  to command "D" Squadron. You  imply that the article was based  upon information received. Will  you convey to your informant  my explicit statement that, so  far as I am aware, his information was deliberately false. You  will confer a favor upon the  officers, non-commissioned officers and men of "D" Squadron  by giving this communication  the same prominence given the  article in question.  I have the honor to be, Sir,  Your obedient servant,  Charles Flick, Major,  .   O.C. "D" B.C. Horse.  Ed.���We are pleased to know  that Major Flick is in a position  to give us this explanation because the editorial of last week  had special reference to him.  Our informant may have been in  error and in this event we take  pleasureMmpublishing-the-state-  mentbf.Major .Flick. He must  recognize with us the evil influences that woidd follow the  introduction of political questions  into the life of a military organization. We have always cherished the highest respect for the  members of this corps and as  we stated last week, "we have  always shared the sympathies of  the organization."  A DANGEROUS PRACTICE  To the Editor News,  Sir: Through the columns of your  valuable paper I would like to draw tho  attention of the public to the dangerous practice of children playing around  the trains in the C. P. R, yards.  They are constantly in and out  around the cars and the fact that  shunting is continually in progress  renders this dangerous. 1 would like  to call the attention of parents to this  condition and warn them to keep their  children away from the station. An  accident will surely follow if they do  not desist.  Thanking you for the space, I am,  Sinc'erely yours,  Anxious Citizen.  Land Act  Kamloops Division Nicola Land  District.
