 y- ca- v  f:tB I    1911  ._����  CO  Vol. 1, No   50  MERRITT, B.C. JANUARY 27, 1911  Price .5 Cents  CD  ������__'  0O  Tl  DisyssE  Plaintiff  Tangled   His   Evi-  ? dence on Cross-examination.  It is not exactly an ordinary  occurrence for a warrant to be  sworn out accusing a man of a  crime befoi'e the said crime,' or  alleged crime, has been committed. Such, however, was the  startling turn of affairs which  developed in the police court at  Nicola last Tuesday morning before Magistrate Rolfe in the horse  stealing case of Ed. Pierce vs.  Fred Gilchrist. During the proceedings "Red" Pierce proved  himself to be the original Tanglefoot Kid.  Edward Pierce, a Minnie lake  trapper, (better known as' 'Red")  accused Fred Gilchrist of-Aspen  Grove with the somewhat serious  crime of horse theft. He had  retained H. Colin Clark to prosecute.the case, while M. L. Grimmett appeared for the defendant.  We have only space to give a  summary of the evidence as far  as it went���which was not far.  Pierce evidently had purchased  the horse from an Indian named  Myres Michell, and possessed a  . bill'of sale. Later one Oliver-  Walker and "Red" had some sort  of dealings, and in Guichon's  store at Quilchena a bill of sale  was drawn up for the purpose "of  transferring the horse to Walker.  Pierce admitted he had told sev-  ~'-erat' persons" fhat he ha'd-'given  Walker a bill of: sale, and even  went so far as to acknowledge  he had told one person  that it  was "the last d d bill of sale  Walker will ever get from me.''  Then he unblinkingly swore to  the court that Walker never received the bill of sale and that he  was only to get it when the "long  saw   the  animal   at   Gilchrist's  when he served the summons.  Pierce swore that in an interview with Gilchrist the latter  intimated he was going to take  the horse but did not want any  trouble. Pierce (evidently feeling like real money) replied that  he would fight it out if it cost him  $10,000. Horse was worth $100,  and only one he owned.  Mr.'Clark thought the magistrate had power to amend the in-  tormation to make the dates read  strright, it being quite clear that  Pierce had lost his horse and that  the information was merely informal and technical anyway.  A little cross-fire and the citing  of authorities took place between  the two, legal luminaries.  After sizing up the knotty situation for a few minutes, Magistrate Rolfe decided to dismiss the  case without calling upon any of  the,numerous witnesses .present.  Costs were taxed to to the complainant.       "  Mr.   Clark  intimated  that an  appeal would be entered.  ���   "Red'' Pierce rode out to Quilchena Tuesday evening with a  gunnysack full of calendars.  Messrs Bennett & Reid, who recently opened up an up-to-the-  minute gents' furnishings establishments in the McDonald block  on Quilchena avenue, have decided to put in a complete stock  of ladies ready-to-wear garments.  They have been fortunate in being able to secure a lease of both  stores in the new block.  One store is already devoted  to men's furnishings exclusively.  The other is now being equipped  with shelves and the latest devices for the better display of  ladies' wearing apparel. A large  stock of the very latest of fashion's decrees is now en route to  Merritt and Messrs Bennett &  Reid hope to be able to open up  their new department by February 1st.  -o���  Sneak Thief  Steals Watch  green" was put up.  However, Walker was leaving  the country and sold the horse to  Gilchrist. ��� - The latter did not  deny taking the animal out of  Harry Earnshaw's field, where  Pierce had him pastured ; hence  the warrant for horse stealing.  Pierce said he missed the horse  on Jan. 5th of this year.  ' In cross-examining Pierce, Mr.  Grimmett asked him to think  carefully and try and recall upon  what date the horse was stolen.  "Fifth of January," came the  reply.  "Then how is'it that this information, made out on the fourth  day of January, says that the  horse was stolen on December  5th, 1910?"  "Don't know; must be some  some mistake ; ain't much of a  hand at rememberin' dates, but  it was took January 5th," said  the Tanglefoot one.  "Did you see Gilchrist take the  horse?"  "No. sir."  , Mr. Grimmett asked that the  case be dismissed because of its  weakness, in that there was nothing to work upon, the prosecutor himself swearing that the  crime took place a day after the  information was made out.  Mr. Clark-put up a strong plea  for Pierce, saying that a man  Hying his isolated life kept no  track of time or tide, thathe was  obviously of a nervous temperament and that he was unused to  such things as blue papers.  ("Red" should not have grinned  at this last remark.)  .'������; .Constable Ash knew the horse  and the men and knew Pierce  had possessed such a horse.   He  Bob Sealey Robbed of His Watch  While Sleeping.  . ..Robert-Sealey's-bedroom,,.;, im  the Coldwater, was a good hunting-ground for a sneak thief last  Monday night.  Sealey retired about Midnight,  and when undressed he hung  his trousers at the foot of the  bed. At some time in the wee  sma' hours.an -Artful Dodger  prowled into the corridor with a  view to ascertaining what the  occupants of the rooms had to  offer in loot. ' He opened the  door of Sealey's bedroom, and  finding the trousers hanging well  within reach, removed them to  the corridor, where he- went  through them out his leisure.  About all he secured was a gold  _-watcla=of=considerable===value_=  The Artful Dodger was extremely inconsiderate, inasmuch as he  failed to replace the trousers  where he found them; and left  them lying on the hall floor.  Evidently the sneak thief made  a tour of the hallway before he  finally effaced himself. A commercial traveller heard someone  trying to open his door about  two o'clock in the morning. He  coughed loudly and whoever was  trying his door at once ceased  and started off down the hall.  This traveller thinks that later  he heard someone open another  door near , his own. Perhaps  this may have been the room in  which Sealey had so innocently  slept.  The police were notified next  morning and in the afternoon  two suspects were 'taken to the  Station and there searched, but  nothing that would identify them  with the larceny was brought to  light. ..;;,:.  It is not known how the intruder effected an entry into the  hotel; but it is surmised that the  door at the back stairway must  have been left open by someone.  BUY IN TOWNSITE  Mr. J. P. Boyd reports, that  during the past week there has  been a considerable activity in  lots in the Diamond Vale town-  site and also in acreage of the  townsite company. There appears to be a sentiment among  local residents in favour of homes,  in the real meaning of the word  "home." Rented houses are-"well  enough in their way, but everyone feels really secure when they  know that they have a claer title  to the roof under which they live.  WE GET HELP  A. S. Bennett, who has been  spending the past month up at  Quilchena, returrfed to Merritt  last Tuesday afternoon. Mr. Bennett is now "one of us", having  joined the staff of the News. If  -the scintillations of an epigrammatist dazzle you with their brilliancy when you peruse these columns at some future date blame  it on Bennett. He will accept the  responsibility.  til discovered about 8 o'clock next  morning by a Siwash, who ran to  the home of Joseph Guichon to  impart the news. The latter  soon had a rig ready and the unconscious young man was driven  tb the Quilchena hotel. Duncan  Macphail was immediately called  from Nicola and for many hours  worked over the unfortunate victim, sewing and bandaging.  ��� In a few weeks; Baytes was  able to be out and-left" with hiss  father for Wallaehin, where the  latter has interests. Later, the  young man suffered relapses and  spent some time in both Kamloops and Vancouver hospitals-  all to no avail, however ; the doctors say he cannot live. One day  a couple of weeks ago he had no  iless than 24 convulsions in nine  hours, due to bone pressure upon  the brain.  r��� The elder Baytes, who had been  in the employ of the British government in India for 28 years,  had come to this country upon  h'is retirement, ��� After looking  b'ver various sections he decided  to send for his son Falvey, and  bought for him a fine cattle  ranch near Stump lake. Both  father and son were highly respected in the' community, and  the news that young Baytes; who  had such a promising career  ahead of him, is going home to  die, will be received with regret  by all who know him.  LAST SECTION OF STEEL  IS ALMOST COMPL  who were surprised by the early  arrival of midnight and refreshments. The host and hostess did  everything in their power to make  everyone enjoy themselves to  their full capacity. That they  succeeded is evident from the  unanimity with which those who  were fortunate to have been present testify to a pleasant evening.  When the time came. to break  up Mr. and Mrs. Kirby would  not hear of the visitors from this  section attempting to return in  the cold, and insisted on them remaining all night. In the morning a hearty breakfast was served and the Merritt delegation  hides them to the train.  Expected  That   Rail-Laying  Will   be   Finished Next  Week.  SUPERINTENDENT HERE  E. G.) Green,  MR. T. J. SMITH  Mr. T. J. Smith, president and  general manager of the Diamond  Vale Collieries Ltd., who suffered  a severe, attack of typhoid fever  shortly after his return from the  Old Country last November, is so  far on the road to health again  that he will be able to leave the  Vancouver General Hospital next  week and return to active business. He may be expected in  =Merritt=about=the-middle=of=Feb^-  ruary.  ADDITION TO STAFF  The mcrease in the amount  of business handled through the  local branch of the Bank of Montreal has made it imperative that  the staff employed here be increased. An assistant ledger-  keeper, Mr. R. C. Lewis, has accordingly been detailed from  Vancouver. He arrived last Monday night, and took up his work  the following morning.  ���. ;���o������   Mr. H.

A NEW DEPARTMENT  At the request of a large number of  friends  and  customers  GOES HOME TO DIE  Falvey Baytes, who met with  an accident near Quilchena early  last August which shocked the  entire community, is on his way  home to England, accompanied  by his father, M. Baytes.  The accident, it will be remembered, occurred on the dark night  of Saturday, August 6th, when  young Baytes was riding a spirited horse through the reserve on  his way home. The animal, galloping at full speed, collided head-  on with a big pine tree. The  horse was killed and Baytes had  his skull fractured and his face  terribly lacerated, besides other  serious injuries to the body. He  lay on the roadway all night, un-  Contractors Put in New Bed  ******v     Power Plant'Engine.

Messrs Hinton & Kenny put a  gang of men to work as soon, as  possible and made a new bed;  taking care that the proportions  of sand, cement and gravel were  correct. The engine was turned  over on a test run Thursday afternoon and the lights  switched  ���Pn_in___the-e-vening Everything  rah smoothly, and it is highly  improbable that there will beany  further trouble.

This was Mr.  Guichon's longest holiday in fifteen/years. He says he enjoyed  it immensely although glad to get  back : home again. Lawrence  disappointed the boys here, as  they confidently expected he  would not return alone, and had  a charivari all planned out.  "Tex*" Carson, of "special police", fame in Merritt, passed  through -'Quilchena   last   week,  after stopping over long enough  to tell the credulous of his many  deeds of valor upon the plains of  the famous cow state to the  south���and why he vamoosed.

Hawkins of Springbrook  ranch and "Captain" Hillier,  whose present address is Nicola,  will have a lawsuit scramble at  Kamloops within the next three  weeks. The latter has entered a  claim for wages which the former affirms are not owing.  It is quite probable that,Jos.  Guichon will put Quilchena town-  site on the market in the spring.  Lots and acreage on and near the  lake front will be sold at very low  prices. The location and general  topography of the site are ideal,  and the lots will doubtless go like  hot cakes. Quilchena is destined  to become still more widelyknown  as a summer resort, with the generous improvements Mr. Guichon  proposes to make along the lake  shore. A boat house will also be  built, and it is expected that a  fine launch will be plying between-  Quilchena and Nicola the coming  season. Then, too, Quilchena  has a bright future in store for  her in more ways than one���with  the practical assurance of railway  connection within three or four  years. Everyone hereabouts is  happy, prosperous and optimistic.  M.L. Mieville, plow-motor superintendent for the B. C. Horticultural Estates, - arrived here  from Wallachin on Saturday and  left Sunday to pay a visit to the  company's recently a c q u i r e.d  tracts of ranch property here.  Mr. Mieville was accompanied by  S. E. Durant, a. newspaper correspondent of London, Eng.,who  is writing up, an exhaustive  sketch of the big concern's interests in this country. Incidentally, he will cover Nicola  valley, which he thinks is "simply  grand and a big surprise to me."  On would think that Quilchena  would be dead at this time of the  year, but you do not need to  bring along any flowers if you  should happen to pay a visit.  A 45 Colt's in the hands of a  half drunken half-breed is usually  an invitation for "home and  mother". Not so with one of  Quilchena's heavyweights, however, last Thursday evening. He  just walked up to that half breed  grabbed him by the throat with  one hand and took the gun away  with the other, Then after a  few swift kicks he informed the  would-be bad man that it was 23  and a lemon for his. The half-  breed could not get to his horse  fast enough and make for the  hill. The gun, which was fully  loaded, was retained, as a souvenir.

L~ABEL_> 12  THE WARD SYSTEM  For some time past, in fact  ever since incorporation first became assured, there has been  quite a little discussion among  the electors, on the ward system  of municipal representation.  Under the Municipal Clauses  Act the representation of electors  on council boards is based upon  a division of municipalities into  certain defined sections of the  townsites embraced in such municipalities, from which certain  men generally two are elected to  . the municipal council. These  sections into which a municipality is divided, are called wards.  Hence the ward system may be  defined as the system by which  councilmen are made representative of definitely, segregated sections of a community. The representatives from one ward  work with a view to obtaining as  large appropriations for their sections of a town as possible.  The sectional feeling inevitable  under such a system precludes  the possibility, as long as human  nature is what it is, of the council working together with that  broad outlook which is an essential of successful adminstration.  It is becoming more generally  recognized every day that, to obtain the utmost efficiency in civic  adminstration, the commission  form of government is just as  well adapted to small as to large  municipalities. There is a sen-  timentIn Merritt in favour of  the elimination of ward politics  in aldcrmanic selections. If the  wards are to be eliminated a  charter amendment, or even an  amendment to the Act itself, will  be necessary.  Why not go in for a straight commission form of government?

'  In the past three months I have put over five miles  of copper wire in Merritt buildings.  ELECTRICAL CONTRACTOR  V  Cor. Voght and Coutlee Sts. MEJRRITT  To The Public  WARNING  In placing the contract for the wiring of  your buildings it is well to bear in mind  the fact that the Traveling Inspector for the  Insurance Companies will be in town in the  near future and that he will condemn all  electrical installation work that is not up to  standard. Several jobs have already been  condemned.  Insurance companies will not insure  buildings in which the lighting system is  unsatisfactory to their inspector.  This is an Age of  Specialists  For your own safety if you are contemplating the wiring of your building, it  is cheaper in the end to consult a specialist  in this line. Jack-of-all-trades may have  done before the Underwriters demanded  a certain standard.  8  ���a Friday, January 27, 1911  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  'Gemmill & Rankine Have It"  SURANCE  At this time of the year when colds are prevalent, Scott's Emulsion insures a speedy  and safe recovery and not having it handy  you are in the same position as the man  whose policy lapsed the day before the fire.

Cruikshank & Wallace, contractors on construction of an irrigation ditch south of Walhachin  expect to complete their present  contract in about two weeks,  when they will commence on the  irrigation work for the B. C.  Horticultural Estates at Walhachin.  This latter contract calls for  the construction of a three mile  ditch between Deadman's and  Eight-mile creeks.  After this is completed they  have t e contract to construct a  ditch and flume to the old Collett  and Moore ranch, which is   now  the property of the B. C. Horticultural Estates. This will be fun  twenty miles, with a ten-foot  bottom, to distribute water on  the farm lands.  Cruikshank & Wallace propose  to bring in a portable sawmill  for the purpose of cutting the  timber to be used in the construction of the flume from the  right-of-way on which the flume  will be carried. After this contract is disposed of the saw-mill  will be taken up the north fork  of the Thompson river, where it  will be used in getting out ties  and timber for the Canadian  Northern construction gangs.  IT PAYS T0�� ADVERTISE.  Lot 11 in Block 17, with a frontage of 120 feet on Vought street,  almost directly opposite, to the  building site secured by the Bank  of Toronto last week, was purchased last Saturday from A. N.  C. Rutherford, of  England,   by  Mr. Harold Greig, of Metritt.  Negotiations were conducted by  long distance phone and cable.  Mr. Greig informs the News  that he intends to place this lot  on the market in the near future  at a price which will make it an  attractive buy to any investor.  A striking illustration of the  value of advertising in this paper  is given in the purchase of the  last lot in Central View by Mr.  S. Wade, editor of the Inland Sentinel,  at  Kamloops. Two   other  lots have also been purchased by  Kamloops investors   during   the  past week. As Mr. Greig patronizes the   News   exclusively   and  practically everything so far offered has been sold, the  value of  inserting an "ad" in these columns is strikingly illustrated.  Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Mathews,  of Nicola spent a few days at the  Springbrook ranch last v/eek.  Mrs. McGruther was a visitor  to Nicola this week, having been  driven over by Mr.   Cruikshank.

Johnnie McLean  In Trouble Again  Faces Dual Charge of Drunk on  Reserve.and Horse Stealing  Provincial Constables Noble of  Kamloops and Lee of Savonas  arrived in Quilchena on Wednesday of last week, coming via  Mamette lake and Merritt on  horseback. They departed for  Kamloops, overland, on Friday  morning, having in their charge  a half-breed prisoner, one Johnnie McLean, who was arrested  on a dual charge���being drunk  on the reserve and horse stealing.  It appears that lately several  horses have disappeared from the  corral of Frank Allison, a liveryman  of Kamloops,   who has   a  ranch about' twenty miles from  that city.    One of the norses was  a   thoroughbred   brought   over  from Hedley and quite valuable.  What directed suspicion to McLean was a remark which he is  alleged to have passed to Allison:  "If anyone will give me $5.00-1  will tell where that horse is." - -  While Johnnie has a rather unenviable reputation, still the cowboys and others arouud the upper  section of the valley do not. believe   the  right man has  been  "grabbed."   On the trip to the  governmeut lodging house   the  prisoner (who looks so handsome  and innocent that he might easily  be    mistaken    for    a    mission  preacher) rode one of the cayuses  supposed to have been:stolen,.  Two-years .ago last if all McLean  was placed in limbo accused of  murdering Indian Joe Lecamp in  a drunken row. He was in Kamloops jail about six months before  the trial was finished. An Indian  woman sworie that Johnnie did  the killing, but as the evidence  was insufficient he was acquitted.  Ropes-a  Reminds the Natives of How A.

This is a very  unusual- occurrence, for a coyote  is rarely caught napping. However, he had just sprung over a  bluff and did not see the cowboy  and his horse, who happened to  be "standing at ease" behind a  clump of brush. The breed -got  his rope ready and spurred up his  cayuse. The coyote was taken  completely by surprise, and although he made a lightning dash  for the open���swish-sh���and the  lasso landed neatly over the critter's head. It was all over in a  minute and the cowboy's dexterity with the cord netted him exactly $7.50���$5 for the pelt and  $2.50 bounty.  When the news of this strange  capture reached Quilchena it reminded  "the boys"  of a much  more remarkable occurrence some  two years ago when Archie Raspberry   corraled a large,   young  black bear, after" "punching" it  for five miles���just .the same as  he would.punch a three-year-old  steer.    Archie was riding home  to his ranch when he happened  upon the bear.    He was unarmed  but felt in the proper spirit to  have a.little fun with Mr. Bruin  ���and he was mounted on a cayr  use   as fearless as its master.  Digging in  the  spurs he made  straight for. his bearship.    The  animal turned tail and careened  down the trail in  long bounds;  Archie kept close. after  it and  when the bear made a'break to  one side the cowboy headed him  off���just'the same as if he were  on a round-up.    It would be a  hard tale to credit if so  many  could not vouch for its authenticity ; but it is a fact that Archie  punched   that   bear a full five  miles���just as if it were a wayward cow���and landed it inside  one of the branding corrals  on  the ranch.    Standing guard, he  shouted to'the boys in the shack  to bring him a gun.  The skin was .purchased a few  days later by J. A. Guichon at  the Quilchena store. Archie takes  hispeculiar adventure as a.matter of course���as he takes everything ' else���but there are few  cow punchers who care to ' 'steer''  a big black bear into a corral.

COUTLEE, Prop.,  Merritt, B.C. Friday, January 27, 1911  THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Grim Reaper  Takes His Toll  J. Williams, Friendless Laborer,  Killed by Train Last Friday/ '"'  A verdict of accidental   death  was returned by   the   coroner's  jury at Dot, convened last Saturday evening by   Coroner   Tutill,  for the purpose of   investigating  the circumstances leading to the  death of J. Williams,   a   laborer  employed until January 17th   at  Bright & MacDonald'   construction camp,   up   the   Coldwater.  Williams was making his way to  Spence's Bridge on foot last Friday, morning when   he met his  death; evidently through being  struck down by the westbound  morning train from Merritt_ The  parcel  of underclothing,   which  he was carrying at the time he  met his death* was  ripped  open  and the garments were scattered  for a distance of ten miles along  tne track from the  scene' of the  tragedy.  According to the evidence given  at the   inquest   Williams   must  have   been, returning   from    a  spring beside the railway track,  wnere he had gone to quench his  thirst, when, the   train   coming  along,   he decided   to   try   and  "jump"  it  and   ride   into   the  Bridge on the rods: in trying   to  do this he probably, ignored,   or  was unaware* of the fact that- a  large proportion of the box-cars  in use on this branch of the C.  P..R." do not have the brace rods  placed in the same position as in  the older and more familiar type  of car; the new   type   of   beam  re-eitforcement   eliminated   the  brace rods. He lost   his   footing  and was struck on the back   of  the head, the force of the blow  producing concussion of the brain  and subsequent death. His bundle  was caught up by the train' in  some way and dragged along the  track and torn open, the various  articles within   being  scattered  along the track" for "about   ten  miles.  ^.Theoretically the foregoing   is  probably correct.    One witness,  who is believed to have been the  .  last to see him alive,   the   train  crew having   sworn   that   they  never saw him, testified sthat on  Thursday Williams   came to his  cabin below Dot and asked if he  would put him up for the night.  This witness agreed to   do  and  gave   him a bunk.    On   Friday  morning Williams left early, saying that he would take the road,  Land Act  Nicola Land District.  Kamloops Division of Yale.
