 Vol. 2, No   7  MERRITT, B. C. MARCH 31, 1911  iAJ  AIJL       ������      v  y��C<*.<r*<L.--.   C'-'�� -;  "%^0      ' "   Pr^ce 5 Cents  W. E. Scott Guest at  Farmer's Institute Banquet  . First  Annual Banquet  Was  Interesting Gathering.. y  "A pronounced success ! "���is  the verdict to apply to the first  annual banquet   of   the   Nicola  Farmers' Institute, held in Armstrong's hall last Tuesday evening, ��� when sixty representatives  of the agricultural and business  industries of the valley sat down.  Hon. W. E. Scott, the deputy  ���f' minister of agriculture, was the  . '��� speaker of the evening and the  : guest of honour.    He spoke for  nearly half an hour, dilating at  some length upon the necessity  for adoption of scientific methods  ��� of agriculture and horticulture,"  and arousing the enthusiasm of  his auditors when he dwelt upon  , the assistance which the provincial government is giving himself  and his confreres in thoir efforts  to   improve  the   farming  work  ��� throughout the province.  The feature of the whole evening was perhaps the revelation of  ��� the attraction which the reciprocity question has for every citizen  in the Dominion, the first speaker  - of the evening to deal with the  matter being, curiously enough,  the Rev. A. de Pencier, Anglican  Bishop of. New Westminster,-who,  by his profession, would be entirely unsuspected of having any  interest in the matt' r.  An elaborate menu, prepared  by Secretary Whitaker, was partaken of, after which the chairman, H. S. Cleasby, presented  the apology of Alexander Lucas,  M. p. p., who was unavoidably  absent in Nelson on private  business.  He then proposed the health of  the King, who was enthusiastically honoured. The ' 'Governor  . General" was next honoured;  then came the toast "Canada  and the Empire," coupled with  the names of John Hutchison and  Rev.; A. de Pencier, Bishop  of  New Westminster.  ���In proposing the toast "Hutch"  aroused the enthusiasm of his  auditors by designating the Nicola Valley as the brightest jewel  in the Canadian diadem. All  were proud of being in and of  Canada, Canadians, and he himself was one of those "unfortunate Englishmen who happen to  be in it; "unfortunate" by the  designation of Canadians.'' He  > had arrived in January '85 and  'worked gradually westward.  Hence he was .in a position to  speak authoritatively when he  said that of all Canada this valley, is the brightest gem.  . The Rev. A. de Pencier was  moved in the discovery that his  name was coupled with this toast  he said for many reasons. First,  he was of the farmers one, a farmer's son; secondly, a Canadian  he was born, and also his father  before him. When one who was  born and who had lived all his  v days in Canada was asked to respond to this toast, however un-  Canadians in carrying out that  great    work.     (Laughter.)    In  Canada thero is room for every  one who is willing to do a days'  work.   He felt that in dealing  with' the subject he was like the  fat man in the story of Philpot  Curran.     Curran  challenged   a  fat opponent to a duel.    When it  came time to shoot the latter objected, as he presented too large  a.target.    ''Well,''��� said Curran,  "I'll chalk my size upon you, and  any shots that go  outside the  mark will not count! "   If the  speaker failed to touch the vital  spots     he    asked    indulgence.  Briefly, he took-his hearers on a  verbal . tour   of   the   Dominion  from the east, where they grow  Gravensteins "second to none"  and sell them for 75 cents per  barrel, to the Pacific, where the  resources.are not ended, for Canadians take toll even from the  sea.  'Since he had been elevated  to the bishopric he has spent all  his time travelling throughout the  province; in fact, he was almost  a commercial traveller.   In this  connection he was reminded of a  most amusing incident.    He was  travelling down the lake district  in a train.   Beside him was a  traveller.   He had his coat collar  ,turnejI,up>=so.; the ...la.tter^did,no?(:-  see his Roman collar.  .The latter  asked him "what line he travelled  for."  " Spiritual,'' he answered.  "Well," said the drummer, "I  guess that's a line there is some  money in| spirits."  He travelled  for the spiritual   wants of his  customers. He made an eloquent  appeal to all assembled for their  aid in the development of the  spiritual, as well as the mental  and physical' attributes of the  rising generation.    It is only by  this that the real, strong Canadian type   may   be   developed.  Then, apologising for intruding  political matters into such an assembly, he closed with a passionate plea for the rejection of this  proposed   agreement  with   the"  the boun-  will remain only the furniture to  pay for. Rev. T. Walker thanks  the ladies and gentlemen of the  city who have contributed their  assistance in the erection of the  hall, which is located at the)  corner of Granite Avenue and  Chapman Street.

BOCH, Proprietress  QUILCHENA AVE. MERRITT  Opposite Bennett & Reid's  ' 'Thos. Crothers, member of  the Dominion Parliament for  West Elgin, recently inserted in  the newspapers circulating in  his constituency an advertisement  asking the electors to send him  an expression of their views regarding the Reciprocity Agreement, He received a large number of replies, and, according to  an Ottawa press correspondent,  he declares that some of these  answers have made him prouder,  than ever of his   birthright   of j grazing   his   lung,   coming  Canadian citizenship. A majority j under the shoulder blade  A CLOSE CALL  Prince Rupert.��� W. J. Weeks,  a telegraph operator at the second  cabin, about fifty miles north of  Hazleton, accidentally shot himself below the heart while on the  trail. He communicated with  Hazleton himsel, and said he was  very weak and thought it was all  off with him, but he would try to  reach an Indian camp about a  quarter of a mile distant. A  doctor started from Hazleton, but  it took two days to reach him.  Weeks was out on the line five  miles from his cabin when- the  gun was accidentally discharged,  the bullet missing his heart by  three-quarters  of   an  inch  and  out  sylvania on October 18, 1810, to  parents named Waller. They  died when he was an infant and  he was adopted by a family  named Reeves, whose . name he  took. In the early 'fifties he  settled in Minnesota, where he  became a locomotive engineer.  His wife died fifteen years ago,  at the age of seventy-eight. Sixteen children were born to them,  of whom four survive. Deceased  has been living in Tacoma twenty-  one years.   ���.������.   ....." -',  of the men answering the adver-  tismeht were opposed the pact  but that was not the feature of  the hundreds of letters that  poured in that brought him most  pleasure. What makes Mr. Crothers proud is the fact that many  poor men in his riding,' struggling  for the necessities of life, wrote  long letters denouncing the bargain because it was a step backward in the race of nationhood,  that it would interfere with inter-  provincial trade, and do much to  destroy the effects of the policy  under which the Dominion had  been riveted together. It comes  as a breath of fresh air in this  fetid atmosphere of reciprocity  talk, he says, to find that struggling laborers, working for their  pittance of $ 1.50 a day are interested in such things as inter-  provincial trade, and the future  of the long lateral lines of east  and west railways. When men  who are wondering where the  next pair of boots for little Johnnie is to come from, can discuss  and consider intelligently such  questions as these, it will be a  long time ere the Stars and Stripes  After walking two miles to a  test pole he cut in and informed  the Hazleton office of his mishap.  Continuing on he came to within  sight of his .cabin late Saturday  evening, when he dropped from  from sheer exhaustion and loss  of blood. It was three o'clock I  next morning when he regained  consciousness. In the meantime  aid was hastening to him from  Hazleton, but it was Tuesday  before a doctor reached. After  all the poor fellow went through  it seems almost incredible that  he should recover, but the doctor  says his chances are very good.  OVER A CENTURY OLD  Sinking beneath the weight of  more than a hundred years, John  Strange Waller Reeves, who enjoyed the distinction of being the  oldest living locomotive engineer  in the United States, died Saturday at his home in Tacoma, Wash.  Despite his great age he still had  considerable strength"and "was  conscious to the last. "His death  was caused by pneumonia.        . 4  Mr. Reeves was bo) n in Penn  CANADIAN CONTINGENT  All arrangements for the transportation  of the   contingent of  Canadian soldiers vyho will represent the Dominion atthe coi*onaT  tion of King George, on June 22,  have been completed.

HARDWARE Friday, v March 31 1911  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Advice From  Deputy Minister  (Continued from page  one)  coupling with it the names of A.  Carrington and A. E. Howse.  Although not a farmer himself,  said Mr. Carrington in proposing  the toast, he was connected with  almost all other enterprises but  that of the cultivation of the soil,  he took pleasure in proposing the  toast.    He had been twenty-four  years   in   the   valley,   and   was  pleased, as a native son of British  Columbia, to testify to the growth  of appreciation  of "the  sterling  quality of old country people. He  thought,   however,   that it was  not always the Englishman who  had had   a   hard time   in   this  /? Country. X Once, when be was a  young man iri Victoria, Mr. Buscombe, now an ex-Mayor of Vancouver, had come into his father's  hotel and asked for a room, saying  that "he .could not stay at the  other place, as they did not want  any  beastly Canadians  there."  He referred with pride, to the  nativity of Premier McBride. As  for reciprocity, he felt that it  would be beneficial ;  but when  there was to be any choice of a  Canada���independent as a nation,  dependent as a part of the Empire, or swallowed as part of the  United States���he preferred dependence as a part of the Empire.  A. E. Howse said he was pleased  to respond to the toast and acknowledge the speeches which  had been made.    As to the reciprocity question, he thought that  not more than one-third of the  farmers:of the valley were there  that night, and he did not feel  that it 'was right to discuss the  reciprocity  question.     The day  has passed when the farmer was  looked upon as a clodhopper, and  -. he is now regarded as a scientific  cultivator of the soil.   Merchants  can learn a good deal from his  methods.    He wished the latter  were able to' raise prices as farmers can.    He was surprised to  hear that a man had ordered hay  in Victoria recently to be shipped  into the valley at thirty dollars a  ton.   This showed that local farmers were holding their crops at  a higher price than  might   be  consistent   with   good   business  policy.    It was a good chance for  the merchant to get back at them  (laughter): Clifford Sifton should  not be taken too seriously on the  reciprocity question,  as he had  never yet gone to his.constituents  for their approval of his attitude.  He contended that the tariff was  not    sufficiently   reduced.      He  thought that the manufacturers  -Shouldhave^been^more-severely-  affected than they are today by  the two' per cent, reduction as-  proposed; in   the   present reciprocity agreement.  Louis Lobsinger then proposed  '' The Provincial Parliament.''  In responding to this toast,  Hi' H. Matthews took occasion to  show how far the present government of the * province have  advanced the work of thedepart-  rhent of agriculture since they  came into office. The present  appropriation was one hundred  and fifty-seven thousand dollars,  and there is a prospect that next  year it will be even greater, as  the effects of the work of the  department are demonstrated.  He touched upon the idea of  having power vested in municipalities'to issue bonds for the  construction of irrigation ditches.  He also pointed out the necessity  forjhaving the government advance money to settlers, so that  they could clear their land. This  is \ done in Australia and New  Zealand, ���:'.He urged that every  farmer in.the -valley should cooperate, much more than at present arid ihsist'on the approval of  anything they ask for. If the  farmers co-operate more and consistently and, strongly advocate  what ^they believe their necessities demand,' they will finally  force the government to heed,  Continued on page six.  ^INCORPORATION OF CITY OF MERRin  THOS.

It Is equally true that ycru know  men with a shock of hair you can  hardly pull a comb through, who have  carried around a dandruff laden collar  as longr as you have known them.  You have also seen men whose scalp  was kept as clean aa a. baby's whose  hair  was   surely departing1.

Scott in regard to the fruit-growing possibilities of the valley. Although,  perhaps, - there was a slightly  pessimistic note in his remarks,  it must be emphasized that he  did not say that fruit could not  be grown here at all profitably.  What he said was : "I do not  advise extensive culture of many  of the varieties of apples. The  hardier apples should do. well  here ��� I think there are six  varieties which I can recommend  for this valley. Of course, you  will understand that this is not a  final opinion���I am open to con-  uiction���but from what I have  seen of the valley and from what  I am able to learn of climatic  conditions here, I would not advise that you try more than the  hardier varieties." Then he gave  advice,'Which, coming from an  expert, should carry a great deal  of weight. Mr. Scott urged that  dairy-farming���mixed farming-  be the principal project of farmers. In this, he said, there is  an opportunity to try fruit cultivation as well.  In conversation with the News  on : Thursday morning, . after  having spent a day in driving  through this section of the valley,  Mr. Scott was enthusiastic on the  Ashcroft Hotel  [Home of the travelling public.  Good comfortable rooms and excellent dining service.   Rates  are reasonable. ' Just give us a call.    Representative meets  all trains.  McGillivary & Veasey, Proprietors.  Ashcroft, B. C.  potentialities of. mixed farming.  " You can grow anything here if  only you have water on the land."  He still adhered to the opinion he  had expressed in regard to apples,  but was more convinced that the  hardier varieties were the best  adapted to this climate : these are'  the Yellow Transparent, Duchess  of Oldenburg, the Mcintosh,  Jonathan and, particularly, the  Wealthy. Now, in regard to the.  less hardy varieties.  Mr. Scott had with him samples  of trees of these varieties, taken  from trees one, two and  three  years old.   The trees were grown  on the Woodward place at Lower'  Nicola.     Each of   the samples  showed   "black   heart."     The  hardier varieties were all right,  though Mr. Scott had no samples.  He again emphasized the possibilities for the "mixed "farmer,;  pointing out the market that lies  right at our door.    In this con-1  nectiori it must be berne in mind-  that the quality of agricultural'  products   from   this' valley    is  greatly superior to the products"  of any other part of the province  ���and the Dominion.  We believe that there is more!  in Mr. Scott's advice than is at  first apparent. Certainly mixed  farming involves more care of  his work on the part of the farmer; but then,. where a farmer,  raises various crops he is reaping  an immediate annual benefit;  while at the same time he is able,  if he chooses, to cultivate fruit,  for the crop from which, how  ever, he must wait five years.

THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, March 31- 1911  Advice From  Deputy Minister  Continued from page 3  them. The applause which  greeted his remarks left no uncertainty but that the members  present were in accord with him.  <; Ronald Campbell was then  called upon to propose the toast  of the Army and Navy, coupled  with the names of J. B. Radcliffe  and Major Flick. Neither of the  latter were present to respond.  Secretary Whittaker then proposed '' The Department of Agriculture."  In rising to respond, Hon, W.  E. Scott took occasion to point  out that he is not a stranger in  the vail ay. at.all, having punched  cattle through here twenty years  ago. Since then he, has noticed  many changes.  In order to get the best results,  he said,  the farmers  must cooperate with the department of  agriculture in the work they are  carrying out.    He had been head  of the department for eighteen  months, having received the appointment when he was away in  the old country conducting publicity  work   for   the   province.  Having farmed in Australia and  New Zealand and in this country  practically his entire lifetime he  thought that he was entitled to  be regarded as a practical farmer,  and that he could speak from ex-1  perience  on  the questions with  which he dealt in the course of  his departmental labours. It was  a good day for him when he came  to the province from New Zealand  some twenty years ago.    It has  been said .by Mr. Hutchison that  this valley was the greatest gem  in the Canadian diadem. He was  afraid that he might commit himself,   and was in an   uncertain  state on that matter, inasmuch  as he had already gone into seven  valleys which:claimed, to. be the  brightest gems in the diadem.  (Laughter.)    Mr. Matthews had  referred to the pecuniary assistance the government gave his  department.    He wished to state  that this year the estimates provided for the sum of $157,000 for  his work.   The year before last,  in the regime of the late Captain.  Tatlow, the first real assistance  was given to his department when  $45,000 was granted for the work.  Last year $117,000 was granted,  and this year the above amount.  It was expended for   different  purposes, but directly on outside  work, the salaries for his department   coming  from a separate  fund altogether.   In the days of  J. R. Anderson the department  of agriculture consisted of the  deputy minister, the head clerk  and a stenographer.    There is  now a staff of nineteen men in  department. Under Mr. Winslow,  a very capable young man, in the  horticultural   department, there  are four experts, whose duties  are confined to separate parts of  the province, thus ensuring adequate supervision of the various  industries.     Their districts are  the Yale,   Kamloops, Kootenay  and Boundary, the Okanagan and  the Similkameen,   This year another district is being added to  the Boundary district.   The live  stock commissioner has four experienced   veterinary    surgeons  under him.   Their efforts in the  past have been mainly confined  to stamping out tuberculosis in  the cattle of the country.   When  he first came into his office he  found  bovine tuberculosis rampant. In a herd of ten cows they  might find that as many as eight  or nine were infected with the  disease.    The provincial government gives compensation to those  whose   cattle   have   to be destroyed ;-but at present the compensation    given    was,   in   his  opinion, hardly adequate.    There  was a- case near Vancouver, in  which a herd of forty-five dairy  cattle were examined.  When the  government vets, examined these  cattle all but seven were found  to be infected and had to be destroyed.     This was. a .case   in  which the compensation allowed  was inadequate.     It is only a  question of time now when bovine  tuberculosis will be entirely  stamped out of the province. The  department's poultry inspector,  Mr. Terry, was about the best  poultry expert in the Dominion.  Mr. Sharp has retired from the  position as superintendent of tlie  demonstration farm at Agassiz,;  and Mr. Moore has been appointed  in his place. As to the work of  his office staff, he said that the  four stenographers employed  there are kept busy all the time  replying to communications and  that sometimes they run behind.  He congratulated the farmers  of the valley on the work they  are doing in their institute, and  and was pleased to learn that  they are increasing their membership all the time. He could  not understand why it is that  some farmers refuse to join in  su?h important work. He would  point out a few of the advantages  to members of institutes.    The  der. This can be bought as first-  class freight f.o.b. Victoria for  $5 per box. It would cost a private farmer, who is not a member of an institute, at least $7.50  per box, and even then he could  only ship it as second - class  freight.  "If there is one thing I would  urge upon the farmers of tne  province," he said; "to be a.cardinal principle of their business,  it would be Co-operation; and Cooperation, Co-operation Co-operation and still Co-operation! For  with that you can get anything  from the government that you  want!"  In regard to the incident which  A. E. Howse had related he told  one which "put the shoe on the  other foot." .-������-,- -X:7.  The importance of the .annual  convention of Farmers';Institutes  delegates was a matter on which  too high a value could not , be  placed.   At the recent convention  department is constantly issuing in Victoria matters of interest to  bulletins, which are compilations  of the very latest scientific and  practical information .obtainable  on the subjects with which they  deal.    The department's experts  constantly   endeavour  to   keep  their publications right down to  date in every respect.    The information contained in the bulletins cannot be obtained by the  ordinary   farmer.     When    the  names of members on institutes  are sent into the department a  bulletin is sent to every member  as soon as it comes off the press.  Now these bulletins are costly to  produce,   yet the   members get  them all for their fifty cent membership   fee.     Taking the  last  poultry bulletin as an example,  that cost the government fifty  cents per copy to print and secure  information alone.   And that is  only one of many.    Its value to  the poultry farmer was at least  ten   or   twelve   dollars.    Seven  thousand members of institutes  received copies of every bulletin  issued. Another advantage which  the department had gained for  the farmer was in stumping pow-  farmers had been brought up and  the experts of the government  given an opportunity to get into  touch with the farmers. The  results were apparent in what  his department had been able to  secure from the government.  In regard to the. proposed experimental orchard which is to  be established here, he was surprised to see that so little interest had been manifested by local  farmers. As to fruit growing he  hesitated about this valley as a  great fruit garden. He thought  that only the hardier varieties  could be" grown successfully commercially,, but he did not say that  finally, the experimental farm  would prove that true or otherwise, but from what he had - observed the winter here would be  too severe for ordinary varieties.'  In regard to reciprocity he produced figures to show that with  free trade in fruit Canadian fruit  growers are at a disadvantage. ���  In regard to dairy products $15,  000,000 is imported into the province annually. Three quarters  of that comes from eastern pro  vinces. With reciprocity that  three quarters would be diverted  to the south and the .money  would leave the-Dominiori. ."'I  fail to see how the farmers of  this province are going to benefit." For the future of the Nicola valley he predicted a wonderful success. Mixed farming he  recommended.  Archie Jackson proposed ' 'Dairying."  In responding D. Dodding, of  Lower Nicola, gave a brief review of the experiences he has  had in dairy farming in the valley. He has riot found it necessary to use ensilage here at all.  When he first came in he put up  a silo, but he found that he could  get two crops of red clover a  year arid did not believe that  putting in silos under these conditions as it is only a waste of  time and money. Any man, he  said, who pins his faith on red  clover in.this valley will make a  success of dairy farming.  Mr. Bullman was called upon  to propose the toast '' Pure-bred  Stock Raising," and Captain  Charles to respond, but both had  left.  J. P. Boyd then proposed  "Coal-mining." W. E. Duncan  was not present to reply.  J. A. Menzies then proposed  "Banking." A. W. Strickland replied. He briefly rehearsed the  history of the banking industry  during the past five. years and  showed how the banking business  and incidentally the wealth of the  valley had increased during that  time.  Fred Reid proposed "Law and  Medicine," which were briefly  responded to by H. Colin' Clarke  and Dr. Stewart.  The press was honoured and  responded to by Messrs. Meikle-  john, Dancey and Coffee. "The  Ladies" was proposed by Mr.  Burgess and responded to by Mi*.  Laycock.  During the evening a letter  was received by H. S. Cleasby in  which the minister for finance  apologised for his inability to be  present.  A vote of thanks was tendered  R. Whitaker for the work in connection with organizing the banquet and the banquetted departed homewards at two o'clock iri  the morning. It was a most successful affair arid is worthy of  repet j tion every year.  H. COLIN CLARKE  Solicitor, Notary, Etc.  Solicitor for the Bank of Toronto.  Quilchena Ave. Merritt.  A. B.

Friday, March .31.  1911  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  HISTORIC EVENT RECALLED  With reference to the death of  Mr. Alex James which occurred  recently   in    Queenstown,    the  Weekly Freeman records that he  was the last survivor of a body  of young Queenstown thenX: who  in 1849 stopped the brig  "Westmoreland," which was laden with  potatoes and about to proceed to  the British Channel with her cargo, rwhich she had taken on board  at Middleton.    Hunger was rampant  at the time in   Cove��� as  Queenstown was then named���  and a body of young Cove boys  volunteered to board the "Westmoreland," which was lying in  the Whitegate roads, as it was a  cruel thing to see food being taken  out of the port when it was so  much needed at home. The young  men got on board the brig and  brought her to Fitzgerald's quay,  ��� new the C. B. &P. railway depot,  at Queenstown, where they uncovered the hatches and called  on all people who were in want  to supply themselves free with  the brig's cargo.     A huge crowd  assembled round the vessel and  carried away with them as much  as they could take of the potatoes.  The small force of police then at  Cove were unable to cope "with  the matter, and the military at  Spirit Island were sent for,- and  having  arrived,   the   officer   in  charge, on seeing the pitiful con-  : dition of the people,  declined to  use the force at his disposal in  combating the people,   and unbuckling his sword, tendered it  to the magistrate present,   viz.,  W. B. Vering.    The justice also  declined  to   interfere,   and the  people thus having free access,  the cargo of potatoes was "quickly  unloaded. - -  Land Act  Nicola Land District.
