 \  Vol. 1, No   45  MERRITT, B, C.: PECEMBER 23, 1910  Price 5 Cents  I00AL  FIRM TAKES  A $60,000.00 BOND  S. B. C. L. & M.  Co. Bond  Thynne Group on Behalf  of Welsh Firm;  The News is in receipt. of authoritative information' to the  effect that the Southern B. C.  Lands and Investment Company  has taken a bond on the Jack  Thynne group of claims at the  head of Bear Creek for the sum  of sixty thousand dollars. The  bond is taken on behalf of  Messrs. Vivian and Sons, the  well known mine owners of  Swansea, Wales. According to  the terms of the bond development work must commence by  April 1st at latest.  The Jack Thynne group, as  these claims are generally known  adjoins the group held by three  Swedes, on which the Granby  smelter people took an option  so'me time ago.. The smelter peoT  pie, it is understood, made two  payments on their bond and did  a good deal of work, uncovering  some fairish ore. So pleased were  tKey in fact with the prospects  that they endeavored to induce  the owners to allow them to - go  ahead with more development  and try to ascertain the value of  the main ore body and decide "as  to closing the deal. The owners  however, refused to acceede and  cancelled the bond; since then  ttiey have done a considerable  amount of ""development themselves and, according to our informant, have uncovered some  splendid ore bodies. The out-  croppers on the Thynne group  are similar to those on the original locators' and the probability  is that Vivian and Sons will have  a, valuable property on their  hands by the time development  is completed.  The right of way on the government road from Tulameen to  the head of Bear Creek has been  cut.' This road was laid out by  P. T. Smith and will cost four  thousand dollars to complete. By  it transportation to and from the  copper prospects is assured.  for the delivery of so much timber in the spring but sold their  contract to Mr. Power..  The Nicola Valley Pine & Lumber Co., in addition to the  manufacture of all grades of  first class lumber have "also added  to their plant the necessary  machin ry for the manufacture  of lath.      ��� _ ...  Mr. Power is a newcomer in  the Nicola valley, his home being  in Kaslo to which point he left  for last Saturday morning to  spend the Christmas week.  About forty men will be kept  in the woods all winter. The mill  when in full operation will employ in the neighborhood of one  hundred men.  couver who has been teaching  here for the past year, has accepted a position at a higher  salary and leaves for Kamloops  early next year, to the great regret of her pupils here, with  whow she had done some good  work and became very popular.  Miss Jessie Rowan, assistant  teacher in the Central School of  New Westminster, is spending  their holidays in Lytton, _  'Mr. Grahame, for many years  associated with the gold-dredging  company in Lytton, leaves shortly  for his home   in   New Zealand.'  JUMPED TRACK  Yesterday morning while being switched around preparatory  to despatch to the north three  cars of coal i umped the track.  One car was completely demolished, while the remaining  two were hauled back on the  track and this morning started  on their journey.  TH  SMOKER AND CONCERT  The" members of the; Middlesboro Society,held one,of the most  successful .-.smokers- of the year  in their quarters "last Saturday  evening.  Boxing and singing were the  order of the evening; the natural  appetite of-the.inner'.man being  satisfied - with ';. a light*, buffet  lunch and liquid refreshments, i "  Among those who volunteered  for the entertainment of their  fellow* guests "were'��� ��� Messrs. Nat  Beaver, Dave Brown, J. Morgan,  W. Sharp, R. Brown and E.  Matthews! About"' one hundred  members were present and when  the 'evening was "concluded "-all  felt that they had spent a most  enjoyable evening.  NEW RESTAURANT  Messrs. J. J. Marks and M. J.  Galls have opened a restaurant  south of Castilloo, s butcher shop  on Voght St. and the name of the  new eating house is the "Home  Sweet Home Restaurant."  Mr. Marks is an experienced  chef and his fame as a cook is  well known to many throughout  the Similkameen,country.   . :  The Home Sweet Home Restaurant should enjoy a growing  and prosperous trade.  New Sawmill  Helps Canford  . o ��� ���  Nicola  Valley Pine  &  Lumber  '. Co. Will Operate on Large  Scale.  Next year appears to have  much in store for Canford  and not alone will she be known  for the rich agriculture lands  which surround the town but  the town itself will derive great  benefits from the construction  of the big saw mill which the  Nicola Valley Pine & Lumber  Company are now busily engaged  in erecting.  Mr. J. W. Power, who has  closed a contract with the above  , named company for the cutting  of 3,000,000 feet of timber was  in the city on Friday night last  and in conversation with a News  man ;. stated that the big dam  which the company is building  with the purpose of forming; a  large basin for the storage of  logs, is now nearly completed  and that May first Jwill see the  big mill in full Operation.

John'Milton Swartz, 'the  old dock cantilever bridge" at  Cislo, rsix miles = below Lytton,  has been converted into one of  three through truss spans. He  has had an average of forty men  working all summer and it was  frnished on Friday, so in order  to celebrate the event a jolly  dance was given to the men in  the Town Hall by Mr. Dois Lor-  ing last night that was thoroughly  enjoyedby-the men and theiF  partners. Thirty of the men left  today.  Word came in of an Indian  being thrown from his horse  while decending a steep incline  about fifteen miles away, but  he is so badly hurt that he cannot he moved? down tojLytton  Hospital and the doctor went up  to do what he could for .him.  No further news of this accident  is .possible yet.        .  y A serious accident,: happened  to one, of the workers on Friday  morning just a�� final Spits were  being thrown,"when" aMr." D.; Mc  Noah took a false step between  two cars and plunged into .the  canyon below, a depth of a hundred feet or so. A telegram  brought down Dr. Sanson of  Ashcroft, who had the patient  brougttOj Lytton Hospital and  found the man severely cut and  bruised all over his body-and  with two ribs fractured!. Tonight  greater hopes are given for the  mans recovery, however.  Mr. J. Rankin of Montreal, inspector of bridges for the C.P.R.  has spent a fewjidays .in Lytton  and left last ^rnght > with/Mrs.  Rankin for Victoria,' where he  has special worlcwaiting forhim.  Mr. Crowley, local bridge inspector' lefi for his home in Vancouver today.  ��v   Jiliss; Bessie Rowan of  REPORT OF PROGRESS  The Columbia Cole and Coke  Company, having completed the  subdivision of their townsite one  and a half milesreast of" Granite  Creek and have placed the lots  oh the market. Dr. McPhial was  informed by ViceTpresident J. T.  Johnstone, of the company/ that  the demand for lots was extremely gratifying.  '" The newly "installed compressor  is' working satisfactory atr the  mines and fifty men are engaged  in driving the two tunnels, one  of which is to be rim in .two and  the other six thousand feet. In a  year's time the company expects  to have between seven and eight  hundred men at work..  {;      BONDS SELL WELL  ' Over $2,500 of the Light and  Power bonds have already been  applied for, according to Secretary Hutchison, and the probability is that the demand will  become more active with the  -passing of the holiday season.  The work of erecting the poles,  which are being supplied by Mr.  Jackson, of Lower ��� Nicola, is  proceeding apace and there is  every indication that the Hinton  company will complete their installation well within contract  time.  GOLDEN RULE DOES  NOT APPLY WITH BOOZE  DELAYED OPENING  Although announcement was  made sometime ago that the  Merritt Mercantile Company  would formally open up for business in time to handle 1 he Christmas trade the delay occasioned  by the dilatoriness of wholesale  houses in making shipments has  made this impossible. The company, however, have managed to  secure sufficient amoun^bf stock  to share in at least a part of the  Xmas trade and will hold the  formal opening next Monday,  December 26. A more detailed  account of what the firm expects  to do will be obtained from the  advertisement on page eight.  :.'s _         r�� : ���  TO OPEN SOON  'r I '   .*���  ^'-It is now-certain that the new  firm which has. entered the  harberdashery business in Merritt, Messrs.

MINE DISASTER  The news of the Little Hulton  mine disaster, near Leigh, in the  old country, will no doubt come  as a shock to many  local miners  who are familiar with the mines  of that locality.    First  reports  received   indicated   that   three  hundred   miners   had   been  asphyxiated,   but   later telegrams  would seem to indicate that this  number may possibly be reduced  by fifty.    The flames from the  fire which followed the explosion  are said to shot' out eighty feet  from the mouth of the main tunnel.    During the  night the fire  appeared to have gradually burnt  dowmandiit was found possible  for - a party  to -enter the main  shaft and attempt .a rescue.  The  most pitful part of the  tragedy  is in the death of a large number  of yonng boys  who  were   employed .as  loaders and helpers.  The force of the explosion was  clearly   heard   for   some   miles  around and quickly  attracted a  crffwd around the pit mouth. The  sound is too  familiar a one for  the  wives  of those  below   the  surface   to   hesitate    over   the  meaning of it.  This is the second disaster in  Great Britain during the pasl  twelve months; the first having  occured at Whitehaven on the  twelfth  of last   May,   in which  Bresnilc and   Steward  Sent-.  enced/'jfor Supplying Fire  Water to Indians.  The vengeance of the law fell  swift aiitijsure upon Martid Bres-  nik and/^Jack    Stewart.    Both'  these men-were charged  before  Indian  Agent Drummond  with'  haviug supplied liquor to Indians  "contrary to the Statutes therefore made and provided".        *'. ���  The offence of the former was  the more serious in that he did  not confine his attentions to one.  lone Injun, but was willing and  ready to alleviate the thirst pangs'  of several.    The   consequences  attendant upon that offence were  fixed by Mr. Drummond at four  months in chokey,  with a hun-f  dred plunk fine added.   In the  event of Martin being unable to  pay up the. necessary gold   to  cover the afore mentioned fine,  one hundred dollars to wit,   the  Indian Agsht decided that three  months more hard labour would  be satisfaction to the law.       . >  Jack Stewart   got   off   more  lightly.    He was given a qnarter  of a year in the Kamloops jail to  ponder on the error of his ways .  and to realize that th��j Golden  Rule does not apply when you  have booze and  meet Poor Lo:  In' fact the Law distinctly for^  bids anyone to   consider   that  famous rule in working order iii  the " circumstances above*" men.-*;-'?  tioned.

A NICE JOB  On the big Harriman railroad  system orders have just been  issued that the trainmen who  comes into a terminal with clean  hands or face will be summarily  discharged;  In the future all trainmen are  expected to have dirty hands,  grimy faces, dusty clothing and  shoes that do not shine. Unofficially the order reads: "Hev who  wishes to hold his job as engineer, fireman, conductor, flagman  or brakeman must come into terminals fwith", unwashed hands  and dirty face."  This is one of the rules by. which  Harriman railroads are waging  a relentless war against accidents  to passengers and to employees.  It is probable that Mr. Thorn,  local agent for the C. P. R., will  occupy the house which Mr.  Fessler has built for Mr. McKenzie.

This fifth line runs very  near the old post office site arid  will probably be the one chosen  by the engineers. " 2  In their search for a good  grade the engineers have also  borne in mind the necessity to  run as close as possible to those  properties which are potential in  tonnage shipments. The result  _has_been_to-bring���the���fifth���line-  right by tho best copper claims  in the Aspen Grove section.? Two  of the earlier surveys brought  the line six miles away fromthe  nearest claims, but now the engineers have been able to work  in closer.  The result of this is. undoubtedly enhencement of the value  of the claims, most of which are  held by local people.

Of course spring is supposed to  be the season for that; but who  can deny that the mistletoe is  delightfully provoking, given the  time, the place and the girl ?

I can always tell whether  a town is a live or a dead one  by that."  - We are in receipt of the Christmas number, of the Saturday  Sunset, and we have no hesitation in saying that it is the  finest example of newspaper  color, printing that we have seen  in the Canadian west. The cover  design, which takes the place of  the editorial comment on the  front page of the.regular issue,  is done we believe in three colors  and represents a (shall we call  it?) fjiord-scape, familiar on the  British Columbian coast. The  whole issue is most artistic and  combines with art the usual  virility of editorial efficiency.  We congratulate our contemporary.  FERRY FOR MISSION CITY  The people of Mission City are  happy, having been assured by  their provincial member, W. J.  Manson that the Provincial Government will make an appropriation for a ferry across the river  in the*'-annual estimates. The rich  district of Matsqui lies south of  the river from Mission and at  present the only means of connection is by the river steamers  or the C.P.R. Pedestrians use  the C. P. R. bridge at considerable risk to themselves. Mission people believe  that the ferry is but the forerunner of a br'dge across the river.  It is expected that within the  next six months Mission will be  lighted by electricity, the Western Canada Power Co. having  recently canvassed the town to  see what light could be sold if  it were brought there. The result  was such that the company is  now waiting to meet the council  in reference to pole franchises,  etc.  WANTED  At the Middlesboro boarding house  by January 1st, one dishwasher, also  man to look after furnace and do odd  jobs.

Many of the friends of Dr. T. V.  Curtin have expressed interest  in the probable danger attending  his brother's work in southeastern Merico. The doctor, however, is in receipt of a letter in  which his brother states that the  defection had not reached as far  south as he was stationed. Needless to say this was welcome  news to the local medico.  and as to a town or cities future  stability, the result has been that  Mr. Greig has invested quite extensively and has. been one of  the lucky ones, and who believes  in immediate turnovers.  Pat Spratt has resigned his  position at the .Coldwater hotel  and has joined his brother in  Kamloops, where they will engage in business.  ______________o   News was received here late in  the week to the effect that last  Thursday, at Granite Creek,  Mrs. F.

For the  past; few days Mr. Collett has  been, compelled to wear his arm  in a sling.  Last Friday evening Mr. A.  Fyle, a member- of the slaff of  the Diamond Vale Supply Company, while in the yard in the  rear of the store, accidentally  twisted his ankle. Though it  was painful immediately the extent of the injury ' was not appreciated until the next day,  when he was forced to remain in  bed. The whole of the lower leg  is black and blue from the strain  on the muscles and extremely  sensitive to the slightest touch.  It is probable that Mr. Fyle will  be confined to his rccm for another week at least.

THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, December 23, 1910  77  A  MERRY  CHRISTMAS  To the residents of the Nicola Valley, in whose midst  we have come to stay���To those who have waited so  patiently day after day for our grand approach to  Merritt���To those who are as yet unacquainted with  the value of the Merritt Mercantile Co., as a money  saving medium where quality will ever be the standard���To each and every one we extend our hand in  hearty Yuletide greetings and wish to all a Merry  Christinas.  MERRY  CHRISTMAS  To the citizens of Merritt, who havejn a number of instances postponed Christmas  shopping awaiting our arrival we have to express our regrets at not being able to open  up at the date we at first anticipated.' Delays, in:" the" wholsale houses together with  delays on the railway line, had "held back freight tcTsuch an extent that the fixtures  ordered for the building, the heating plant/and the;bulk of the goods themselves were  only received a few days since, and the turmoil and confusion in the store for the past  few days did not allow of any formal* opening at the time, first intimated in these  columns.,.  , ��� ...  ,.....:....,,.,:..���,-...-,;. .  ...... .,*...:���.������..' ...      ,:',,-      ������-.-'.:       .-���*.,,���  ges  .y-nsn.:.  7 Our carload of; Stoves and mnges whic^  a little earlier than the balance of the stock; are all  order for showing to the public; During the past"*  few days, we have* sold' fourbr five to people who  have been waiting for just such a chance to get a  -guaranteed 'article at a; PRICE? which-:sellsfpr#us  every time. ,.The accompanying jcut gives one an  idea of the style 'and; perfect workmanship which  characterizes.the Gurney-Tilden.make^pf stpyes,-.W^  are.sole agents 'for this particular niake^andican  assure our customers that they are getting the best  that money can buy. .   .   During the last-day or two, however, quite a number have been asking for certain  articles in our different lines, and -in most- every', instance we. have been able to accommodate them after some fashion, andasbest we could under the conditions prevailing. To any- who are wanting'something during the next few days, and until our  formal opening, we give you a hearty invitation to COME and put up with the delays  which might possible arise in our efforts to secure the articles required from so large a  stock, and WE will do our best to make things pleasant for you. One thing we can  guarantee is the quality and price of any'article in our, line.  s  mugs  We have just received a large shipment of men's  suits, etc., and are ourselves surprised at the'prices  which we are able to sell at. "WHY THAT IS A  $25.00 SUIT', exclaimed a lady yesterday when we  showed a suit for $13.50. We are continually getting  just such flattering assurances from everyone else  and we are already led to believe that a strong grasp  on the business relations of the residents of the district has been made even before we are formally  opened for business. .     -"    .  WATCH THE CROWD  OPENING  HARDWARE  Perhaps the. most complete line which we will  open up with wiil be our shelf hardware and cooking  utensils, as well as builders hardware and tools. It  "is our intention to specialize in these lines, and we  are losing no opportunity to make this line a complete  success. An entire carload of the very best in every  line of hardware promises a stock to choose from  that cannot be equalled elsewhere, and * this, together with the knowledge, that everything is new  and fresh from the wholesale houses, is going to be  the inducement for you to patronize the place where  Prices reign supreme.  nROrFRIES  OPENING  GET IN ON THE BARGAINS  Although the departments mentioned are the  ones to which we have paid special attention in getting everythiug in order for our openiog, we are by  no means going to let the other departments slip by  without notice, and we fully expect that within a  very short time all other departments will be fully  stocked.  Our shipment of German China, is opening up in  first class condition, but we have to express our regret that we did not have it ready a week sooner so  ��� as to give everyone a chance to try something in this  for Christmas gifts.
