Array Vol. 2, No   5  MERRITT, B.C. MARCH 17, 1911  Price 5 Cents  In Practical Form  Directors Elected for Incorporation on Saturday Night  Practical, businesslike form  was given to the movement to  secure an up-to-date public hospital by the meeting, at which  provisional directors were appointed to set about incorporation  of the Nicola_Valley General Hospital, "last Saturday night, in  Menzies' Hall. The hall was  filled with men eager to further  the scheme and have the hospital  erected as soon as possible.  *W. E. Duncan's announcement  that Gilbert Blair, of Vancouver,  had donated an acre of the Blair  subdivision for hospital purposes  was received enthusiastically.  Mr. Duncan added that the committee on site had thought it best  to have two acres, and he wired  Mr. Blair; asking hire if he would  hand over the additional land.  At the time of the meeting he  had received no reply to his wire.  A. VV. Strickland was appointed  to tim chair, but when the secretary v/as called upon for the  minutes of previous meeting of  general committee workers it was  found that he was not present,  being detained at his office by  business. G. B. Armstrong consented to ace as secretary for the  evening. Archie Jackson reported that Dr. Young, provincial"  secretary, had assured him that  the government grant would be  forthcoming when asked for, and  this was the occasion for another  outburst oi" enthusiasm: '"  Then the purpose of the meeting-was brought out. Mr,:Strick-  land announced that the organization work had so far progressed  that it was necessaiw. to incorporate  before   taking steps   to  secure plans.    In all .$8987 had  been   collected,   about ��5200  of  which  had  been subscribed by  miners.    Mr.  Grimmett pointed  out that  before a public  body  might have legal standing it had  to incorporate.    To incorporate,  certain    people,   not   less-than  five, should form temporary officers of the body, who should  apply to  the registrar of joint  stock companies at Victoria for a  charter.    After this  is granted  the stockholders, all those who  subscribe towards the objects of  the company thus formed, may  =hbld=a^niee1rfrig=aM=^egurafly=  elect their director's.The first  directors   are   known    as   provisional directors.  ...In a public body, as this hospital    organization,   where   the  provincial government contribute  a pro rata share of the expense  of erecting the hospital, as Mr.  Cleasby pointed out, the provincial authorities have the right to  appoint two  of  the permanent  directors.    They have, however,  no say in the appointment of the  provisional directors, that resting  with the meeting.  The nominations were called  for, and the members of the  Press were appointed scrutineers.  The result of the polling showed  elect A. W. Strickland, Charles  Graham, Fred Gay, Jos. Graham,  John Collett, Archie Jackson and  John McMillan. By an error in  transcription, the scrutineers first  announced that G. Pride was  elected in.place of Fred Gay.  >After the meeting the directors  elected Charles Graham general  manager of the hospital for the  present and decided to advertise  for applications for the position  mond 'Vale ���."Supply Company's  premises, tongues of angry flame  shot into the air, lighting the immediate vicinity as by day, and  soon the glare was. visible for  miles around. ' The "Little Gem  restaurant and rooming house,  occupied by Sam Gostango, was  being destroyed. As soon as the  flames went high enough for all  to see there was a rush to: the  scene, and half an hour after the  cry was raised there, were five  hundred people onythe.scene.  Men rushed into the burning  house and threw out beds, and  bedding and large, dark" barrels)'  one of which was full of wine.  This was rolled to a safe distance  and a man placed,oyer it by Constable Vachon, to see thatnoone  took any of it. This man was  called away soon after and in a  few minutes'after' he had left  a bucket brigade was quietly  emptying-.the barrel. >'��� When the  constable returned the barrel was  sadly depleted.  There was no hope of saving  the Little ' Gem ' without a fire  brigade, so, under the direction  of Archie Jackson and Fred  Paige,- a gang, fought .to -wet  down a dwelling about a hundred  feet to the west, and prevent'it  froni catching-f fire from flying  sparks._ Andrew... McGoran ..and  Roy Thomastookchafge'of-wetting the front and others took  .care of. the. roof.���The heat-was  intense, and but for the fact that  the sides of the burning collapsed  inwardly the scorching breath of  the flames might-have-compelled  the desertion of the.home.L.  The' building destroyed was  owned by a Chinaman.' It represents an expenditure of about  $1000, and was not covered by  insurance.  A BIRTHDAY SOUVENIR     y  Last Tuesday being the seventy-fourth an ni versary of the birth  of one, of the oldest residents of  the valley, Mr. Jesus Garcia, a  number of his numerous friends]  : decided to make it the occasion'  for a testament of their appreciation of his sterling worth, as a  rancher, business man and friend.  Co-operatively they purchased a  handsome, upholstered leather,-  fireside chair; it was both costly  and particularly comfortable.  The presentation was made at  the Garcia home immediately after a dinner, to which fifteen  guests sat down, in which the  viands were delicious. A spirit  of camaradie possessed the diners  ;and to more than one came the  appreciation that it was a reunion  of friends. The past, the present  and the future proved themes of  absorbing interest; the first,, two  being subjects upon Mr. Garcia  was especially fitted to dilate: as  for the future, if all the prophecies made that evening come true,  then the past and present are  tame. "      ���   '  Among those-who were present  at the dinner were Mesdames  Howse, Strickland; Hirsch, Grimmett, Austin, Tutill, Pooley, Rogers and Miss Vair; and Messrs;  A. W. Strickland, A. N. B. Rogers, M. L. Grimmett, G. B. Arm-  srtong, L. Austin, J. Garcia and  Dr. Tutill. .  - y  After the dinner guests began  to arrive for the dance, a full account of which appears in another,  column-      '   -  CHINESE CREWS  Word reached Vancouver last  Thursday that the chief officer of  the British steamer Bannockburn  was obliged to kill two members  of the Chinese crew in self-defence, following the stranding of  the steamer, near Dover early last  week. As previously reported in  -The Province: the Bannockburn  ,was bound put from Antwerp to  SanFrancisco with general cargo  for Parrott & Co., when she went  ashore at Dpyer.y Later advices  state that the Chinese crew rushed the chief officer who produced  a revolver and killed two of them.  Two others jwere wounded but  sthe" remainder came on and it was.  only the arrival of the captain  and other help that drove the  mutineers back.  The Bannockburn is well known  here for she brought rails to  Prince Rupert last year from  Cape Breton, afterwards loading  barley at San Francisco for the  United Kingdom. On* this voyage she was to have come north  to load lumber on the Fraser  River.  Government Grants  $8,000 For School  company with his fourteen year  old brother Johnny and another  Indian, Johnny Bob, went to: the  Nicola hotel, arriving therefrom  the rancherie at eight o'clock in  the morning. The trio put their  horses up in the stable for a feed  while they went into their breakfast. Before Phillip went in, he  swore, he handed Shrimpton a  two dollar bill and asked him to  get him a bottle of whisky or rum.  This Shrimpton agreed to do, and  further informed him that he  would find the bottle in the manger on his return from breakfast."  At that time the Indian had $22.

B. Kennedy returned'from  Vancouver this week.  Harold .. Greig    Conducts  cessful Publicity Trip  Mr. Harold Greig, the well  known local realty operator, re-  ���turhed to town on Tuesday evening after havirig'spent a week in  Kamloops, Lytton, North Bend  and other points along the main  line. As a Booster for Merritt  he proved, himself a great success. In Kamloops he ran full-  page coloured advertisements.,  set'fingforth the ��� prospects and  potentialities.of the valley, with  the-result that he not only induced many to invest-in local real  estate, but he has organixed several parties of capitalists who  will come here in a month or two  with a view to investigating the  opportunities for large investment.  In conversation with the News  shortly after his return, he said:  VMerritt is the name on everyone's lips. ; Everywhere* I went  people kept coming and asking  about our town, as soon as they  heard that I could give them the  information they were after. I  sold out of Central view property  completely."  Then Mr. Greig made an announcement.  "'In a few weeks I shall put  upon the market the largest subdivision of,- the best home-sites  that has ever been offered to the  people of this town. I am not  in a positioin to state at present,"  He added in reply to a question,  "where this subdivision will be,  but I may be able to make an announcement next week."  In Kamloops there was a slight  flurry,of speculation in land adjacent] to the Indian reserve, in  consequence of a report that the  Canadian Northern would put  their shops therein exchange for  a , depot site an d right of way  through the town.. People bought  lots and sold again for large  profits, when the announcement  came out that Sir Daniel Mann  had decided that the site offered  was too far from the present,  mainline and that his company  would not accept the offer. This  killed the realty boom.  omon's  :  Sorrow  Stableman From Nicola Set Free  From Serious Charge  Last Tuesday afternoon, shortly after five o'clock, in fact, Justices Tutill and C. MacDonald  acquitted Solomon Shrimpton of  the charge of having.supplied liquor to an Indian. The case occupied a day and a half. The  hearing/commeneed^astrSaturday^j  afternoon, but" after the evidence  for the Crown was all in the magistrates advised the defendant to  secure counsel, as the evidence  against him appeared overwhelming. It was then adjourned to  Monday morning, when M. L.  Grimmett appeared as the prisoner's legal adviser. The prosecution failed to take the hint to secure special counsel and rested  their case upon the evidence submitted Saturday afternoon.  Phillip Sampson, an Indian  from the Coldwater reserve, was  arrested On Wednesday and  charged with being in a state of  intoxication. An Indian, be it  known, can never become legally  drunk; he may only be described  as intoxicated. Being questioned  as to the source of his liquor supply Phillip at once informed the  provincial police that he had obtained his liquor from a stableman at the Nicola hotel. He  then swore out an information  against the charitable stableman  and Constable Vachon accompanied him to Nicola, where, out of  a roomfull of seven men he at  once identified Solomon Shrimpton. The latter was arrested and  brought to Merritt, where Dr.  Tutill and Chris MacDonald sat  in judgment.  .,. Philip. Sampson, a Sampson in  name but not in his physical attributes, swore that last Thursday morning, March 9th, he in  1       LOWER NICOLA NOTES  ��� D. Dodding has returned from  a four months? tour of the old  country. He is accompanied by  Messrs. W. Procter and Gerard, ���  who will stay in. the valley for  some considerable time; probably  they.' will eventually decide to  make this their permanent home.  Mr. Williamson, secretary* of  the B. C. Sunday School Association, was here "last -Sunday and  delivered one of the most impressive sermons we have ever had  had'the'pleasure of listening to..  Dr. Stewart has practically re-  covered from his severe attack of  pneumonia, and is now spending  histimei.farming. a^He cheerfully  maintains' t"hat^is-ds ^the^best  climate he has ever seen.  Jesus Garcia i was a visitor to  town last Wednesday. For all  his years he still looks hale and!  hearty. Quite a:number of local  people had the pleasure of attending his birthday dance and  dinner of Tuesday evening.  . There is no truth at all in the  rumour that Barclay Bonthrone  has sold his ransh and that John  McCullough is to take possession  this spring.  Tenders to Be Called for a Four  Roomed School House  Next week the government  will advertise for tenders for the  erection of an eight thousand  dollar school house, to be built on  the site adjacent to the present  school. This news was received  by H. S. Cleasby last Saturday  evening. Dr. Young, minister of  education, has announced that as  soon as' there are a sufficient  number of pupils to justify the  establishment of a high school in  Merritt he will give the board the  requisite powers, and the present  schoolhouse will be used as the  high school.  -The government appropriation  calls for a four-roomed building,  which must be in keeping with  the design of the present school.- .  house.    It is expected .that eight *  thousand  dollars wil] cover the  cost of the building, but whether"  or not that is a correct estimate  can only be learned when - the  tenders are in.      ^  SUNDAY  SCHOOL  WORK  On Monday and Tuesday evenings the annual convention of  the :Nicpla district of the ; B, C.  Sunday School Association was  -held^in^the^Methodist-and^Pres-  byterian Churches in Merritt. A  large number of rominent workers from various points in the  valley, as well as from outside  points, assembled here for the  occasion.  The convention commenced at  eight o'clock on Monday evening  with prayers and devotions. Mrs  Dr. McKay, superintendent of  elementary Sunday school work  in Vancouver, discussing the latest and best methods of conducting Sunday school work with  children. For purposes of illustration she showed how a lesson  should be taught in order to in-  sui'e the proper appreciation of  the work by pupils. On Tuesday  evening Rev. I. W. Williamson,  general secretary of the B. C.  Sunday School association, dealt  the theme "the Sunday school a  man's job."  .���;.0-'.i ��� . o��������� -������..  Charles L. Betterton, a Victoria  capitalist who recently spent some  time- here, will return to town next  Monday evening.  H. Colin Clarke has been appointed  solicitor to, the Bank of Toronto. He  is a lawyer of considerable experience  at the bar in London and British Columbia.  Next week A. W. Strickland, manager of the Nicola branch of the Bank  oi Montreal, will take charge of the  office in Merritt. J; P. S. Gillum,  acting sub-agent here, goes to Nicola.  There may be further changes in the  local staff, but not for some time.  Archibald W. McVittie, of McVittie  & Cokely, surveyors, has returned to  town from Victoria, where he has been  syending the winter. In conversation  with the News Mr. McVittie made a  suggestion which it would be well for  the oitizens to consider:: That wasthat  some day should be fixed upon as Clean  Up Day, when everyone should take  steps to have all the refuse around  J houses gathered up and burned.  DANCE AT MR. GARCIA'S  Following the presentation of  the token of esteem, at a.dinner  on Tuesday night, Mr. Garcia;  gave a-dance to his numerous  friends.; To be present at this  friends'-of Mr. Garcia travelled  from all over the .valley, some  .coming frpm as far as Spence's  Bridge.

WALTER CLARK RESIGNS  ���Walter Clark, for years chief  of provincial police in the Nicola  Valley, has resigned. He left  on Thursday for the Northwest,  where he will invest before returning. It is expected that he  will be away a fortnight.  COLLETT-SMITH  Last Wednesday afternoon at two  o'clock Arthur Collett and Jessie Smith-  were united in marriage by Rav. W. J.  Kidd, pastor of the St. Patrick's Presbyterian church, at the home of Miss  Smith at Spence's Bridge._Only__the.J_  "families ofltne contracting parties and  two intimate friends  were  present at  the wedding.  The happy couple left for Lower Nicola, where   they  are   to  reside, late in  the afternoon.    Their hopes of arriving  without   attracting  notice  were   shattered   by   the   machinations   of   King '  Dodd.    When the train  pulled into the  *  station the bridal party received  a hot  rece;ption.      It   was   "shivaree"   then  that night, and the   hours   were   small:-.:  before the last well-wisher took his de- "z  parture.

He said that  the government was investigating financial conditions preparatory to the introduction of the  measure into the House of Commons.  Monsignor Stagni, the recently  appointed Papal Legate to Canada, will arrive in Ottawa on the  25th of this month.  The Vancouver police are conducting a vigorous campaign  against the gamblers of Chinatown, and have recently made  several raids. In one they managed to secure no less than nineteen white men.  The Boundary Creek Times,  founded by Duncan Ross for  political purposes, has thrown up  the sponge before the competition of R. T., otherwise " Bob "  Lowery, editor of the Greenwood  Ledge and journalistic knight  errant, who is ever ready to break  a lance with all who question the  individual's right to think for  himself. This week's Ledge contains the announcement in large  letters, in a " box," on the front  page. What Lowery paid for the  goodwill, etc., is not known.  Everything seems peaceful in  Mexico just now. At leas': there  are no more strong threats of intervention by the Americans, the  Germans, the Japs and the  French. Madero, the insurgent  leader, has issued a manifesto to  the nations of the world. Car-  ramba ! They must keep their  hands off, or he'll stuff them with  chili con came and, filling his  cannon with hot tamales, blow  them all into the sea.    Bingo !  Calgary will spend half a million dollars this year in the construction of schools. Evidently  the Albertans have faith in tho  education of the masses.  The Saanich Liberals have disbanded their association. Disgust at the treatment, or the lack  of it, at the hands of Hon. Wm.  Templeman is said to be responsible.  The War Department in England has issued orders creating a  special aerial battalion. Eligibles  must be under thirty, have an  aerial pilot's license, be sailors  . with an aptitude for mechanics,  have a knowledge of foreign languages and must not weigh over  one hundred and sixty pounds.  If there were any more requirements ho doubt the order would  have mentioned them.  Rt. Hon.

" The census of Canada will be  taken next June and it will show  that we have a population of  7,702,015 people, including all the  members of the Smith family.'' ���  Greenwood Ledge. Wrong! Two  Smiths died the other day and  three got married.  Judging from the number of  Letters to the Editor in the  exchanges we have from the  Okanagan, there must be a few  Englishmen there. When an  Englishman has a grievance he  writes to the papers.  The growth of trade between  Canada and Australia, according  to recent advices, has justified  the Union Steamship Company of  New Zealand in placing an order  with Glasgow shipbuilders for the  construction of two ten thousand  ton steamers, to operate between  Vancouver and Sydney, via Auckland. This company operates its  business in Canada under the  name of the Canadian-Australian  Steamship Company, which is  generally supposed by Canadians  to be anothei branch of the  C. P. R. This impression is erroneous, however, the C. P. R.  having no interest in the company  at all, merely acting as Canadian  booking and passenger agents  for the company.

Pink teas will be served at the  lawn tennis court .this summer-  while mother is at home doing  the washing.  Had Solomon been a bartender  he would have been wiser still.  It is not always the dog with  the longest tail that has the happiest wag.  It's a caution how frequently  the rails on the new K." V. road  have to be wet.  The boys around Merritt, from  thirteen to seventeen, who consider it fashionable and manly  to smoke cigarettes and use profane and obscene language on the  streets, will never own an automobile or become premier of British Columbia.

B.C  LABEL> 12  MORALITY  There is no intention. on. our  part .to enter into the merits, or  otherwise, of certain influences  which may be regarded as detrimental, or otherwise, to the moral  welfare of a community. "We  propose to occupy a little spaee  in casual reflections on tde relation of morality to human progress ; and to .endeavour to.point  out wherein lies the menace of  some of the champions of Indi-  vidnalism, and the reaction  thereto~Socialism~to the moral,  and hence mental and physical  ejevation of suffering humanity.  Imprimis, however, we would  also assure our readers that we  hold no brief for moralists of the  pusillanimous, or narrowly didactic type.  ���The particular members of  society to whom we refer are  those, who hold that the basis of  all social, political and economic  problems is the sex instinct, and  who draw therefrom the conclusion 'that nothing else really  amounts to anything and that  therefore all moral laws are  against the laws of Nature, hence  unnatural, and continence impossible. They would remove all  restrictions from promiscuous  coition. It is generally found  that this type of man is utterly  _fatalistic=theoretically,=and=prac-  tically the reverse. Certain  strong, in fact the" strongest,  Socialists maintain that the marriage ties of the present day are  fundamentally wrong, and would  entirely eliminate such a tie in  the Utopian socity to which they  aspire.  The inviolability of the home is  the most cherished idea of modern  society. Man is a creature susceptible to illusions in regard to  that which he cannot comprehend  very readily. The average human  being is not one who is inclined,  even had the time at his disposal,  to enter into metaphysical controversies. Those who delve deep  and by human logical processes  separate the spiritual, or ideal,  from the material, or real, eventually, by their own human limitations, conclude that the principles inculcated in children are  entirely wrong. So, by that same  process, applying cold logic to  ejfcery ideal of humanity, they  find that everything is wrong.  Then���  '.''Is there aught worth losing or  keeping,  ing,  The laughter that dries the  tears,  Or the weeping that drowns  the laugh ?  For joys wax dim, and woes  deaden.  We forget the sorrowful biers  And the garlands glad that  have led in  The sorrowful march of years.  And life is short, the longest  life a span ! "  Evidently Gordon did-not believe that life held anything that  was really true, and he shot himself. A man of great literary  and executive ability, in the short  time he tried for fortune he made  great sums and spent them prodigally.  And those who apply their logic  to the destruction of modern  ideals in morality, are they not  evolving a frankenstein for their  own destruction ? Strike away  the marriage tie, destroy the  home, dissect patriotism, analyze  ideals, shatter illusions, then ?  What?   ���'  Then Lust is loosed and Purity  is gone ; Achates is' no more ;  Agalia, Thalia, Euphrosne names  for libertines to play with;  Bacchus dances to the songs of  Comus ; and Penelope is relegated  to oblivion!  OUR  PRIDE  We believe that there is none  who will enter into a controversy  with us as to the superiority of  the Nicola Valley over the rest  of the province in the matter of  climate.  It has been our pleasure to  have witnessed magnifiicent sunsets, clear moon-lit and dark,  starry nights in every quarter of  the globe. Some have been remarkable. In the . Indian Ocean  sunsets are awe-inspiring, the  sky and clouds, after the sun has  disappeared, constantly changing, paling and brightening, assuming every shade and every  hue.    Those sunsets are unique.  There is nothing which more than  suggests" them elsewhere. The  grossest materialist pauses in a  voiceless amazement as he sees  them for the first time. The most  reasonable explanation for such  a phenomenon we have ever received is that it must be due to  salic crystals in the air,' drawn  in  the   constant  It J!  1*5  The   bitters   or   sweets  men  quaff,  The   sowing  or the doubtful  reaping,  ;The harvest of grain or chaff ;  ���The    squandering    days,    or  '       heaping,  The waking seasons, or sleep-  and powerful  evaporation of that heated water  waste.  Last Tuesday evening the sun  sank in a cloudy sky, tingeing  the clouds carmine, which paled  to ochre, then to orange, then to  pale gold, and faded out with a  dull silver sheen.  "Then the Moon, from vague  mists rising,  Slowly  mounts   the  jewelled  dome, ;  Like the Venus of the ancients  Rising from the ocean's foam,  And one by one in Heaven's  garden,  The silver star-lamps light."  At eight o'clock the sky was  clear. From the reflected light  of the snow, probably, the ether  was a clear violet, on the horizon  only paling to light torquoise.  The moon itself was like a disc  of molten silver, brilliant, and in  its brilliance dazzling to look  upon. All the hillsides were revealed as if by daylight, the trees  on the ridge-tops silhouetted in  lac��.y filaments against the blue  sky. Bathed in- silvery- light,  even the snow patches quivered  dazzling. Who noticed the scene  paused, and inhaled deep breaths;  the blood rioted faster with the  zest of living. It was good to be  alive.  Only in an atmosphere of  unique clarity could such a scene  be reproduced.  I    SPECIALIZE    ON  CUT-OVER TIMBERLANDS  Their Treatment a Great  Problem in  Canadian  Forestry  "The handling of cut-over  lands is the greatest problem in  forest protection and forestry in  Canada to-day."  In these words, taken from  Bulletin No. 9 of the Forestry  Branch of the Dominion Department of the Interior (entitled  '' Forest Fires in Canada, 1909"),  the author, Mr. H. R. MacMillan,  one of the assistant Inspectors of  Forest Reserves, sets forth one  of the chief aims of Canadian  forest management.  The danger from these cut-over  lands is two-fold. In the first  place, they are the worst possible  menace to the forests because of  the readiness with which fire  starts on them at the least provocation. After the lumberman  has finished cutting the timber  there remains, scattered over the  land, a mass of chips, tree tops  and other debris, which gradually  dries out and in a few months  becomes like so much-.tinder. . A  lighted match, a spark from a  camp-fire, a lighted cigarette  dropped, and away goes the  tinder, and almost with the speed  of thought a serious fire has developed. Perhaps the fire meets  with no worse fuel than more of  the cutting debris.      " .  Then the loss is not so serious,  but even so the fire may have  consumed much, if not all, of the  thin soil characteristic of some  foreign regions,. and any possibility of further tree- growth is  lost for centuries) if not for ever.  Should the fire come to mature  and valuable timber; the loss  from the destruction of the timber may be enormous, and in  some cases such fires have reached  to the homestead of the settler,  destroying his crops, buildings  and other improvements (perhaps  his little all) and even human  life.  The other danger���not so much  appreciated until late years, and  even now only <by a comparative  few���is the hindrance to the tree  seeds and the little trees which  this mass of litter presents. Even  when the seeds fall, they have  small chance to start or germin-  Both for Ladies' and Gentlemen's Wear  Spring Stock Has Arrived  We also specialize in Cents' Whipcord Tweed Pants  MORGAN BUILDING    -  Our Gents' Furnishings  OPPOSITE COLDWATER HOTEL,    -    MERRITT, B.

If by any chance  a small tree does spring up it  grows with difficulty and has  great chances of being swept  over and destroyed by the fire.  Even during the present year  (1910) many forest fires have  raged in cut-over land, those of  September, near the city of Van-  cover, B.C., being a case in point.  Mr. MacMillan figures that for  every foot of timber taken out of  the forest by the lumbermen  throughout Canada an average of  seven feet has been destroyed by  fire. This, it may be said, is a  lower estimate than has been  made of certain districts of Canada, e;g., the Ottawa river valley,  where Senator W. C. Edwards,  one of the most prominent lumbermen of the country, thinks  that at least ten times as much  lumber has been destroyed by  fire as has been taken by the  lumbermen.  Various other topics are discussed in the bulletin, such as  the chief causes of forest fires,  the effects of the fires, in the  destruction of timber, the destruction of the soil, the interfer-;  ence with the water supply and  the effect on future tree growth,  and the   means   of   preventing  Good Living  means that the food  you eat is of the very  best that can be obtained in the local  market.

While in Vancouver he was the guest of Gus  Grote, a former resident of this  city, who is not in business for  himself  in   the   Terminal City,  where he conducts the new Couver Cafe.    No doubt Gus. is entitled to a goodly share of the  credit  for  Bert's  improvement  physically.  Mrs. Mackenzie, wife of the  superintendent of all work above  ground for the Nicola Valley Coal  and Coke Company, arrived in  town the latter part of last week,  accompanied by her daughter and  two sons.

This  amount   was  in two tens and one   two   dollar  bill and the balance in   small silver.    His   breakfast   cost   him  twenty  five   cents.   He   swore  that he paid for his own and his  brother's   breakfast   with   this  money, having given his brother  money for  his.    When   witness  came out from breakfast he went  into the stable and in the manger  found the bottle hidden under the  straw.   .���;,:',-:  :--:;-y v  Jimmy Sampson, a diminutive  Indian with a distinctly Oriental  cast of countenance, being sworn  testified. "I   was at   Nicola   on  Thursday.. Accused gave Phillip  a bottle of whiskey.    We put our  horses up at the   rancherie   the  night before and brought   them  to Kirby's stables at eight o'clock  the next morning.    The   horses  were not at Kirby's stable during  the   night.    "He..did .not,, know,  what accused was doing around  the stable, y They >]had> had no  whiskey at-the rai^erie.^ V 77  In reply to a questi^n^j did  not   see   accused    milking   any  cows. '-'''������������"��� y';':-;:' yx -  Did you see Phillip give accused  two dollars ?-���I did.  After some laborious indirect  questioning, difficult inasmuch as  the witness did not undei stand  much English, witness said that  Phillip got the bottle from the  :manger and that accused put it  there for him.  The cross-examination by the  prisoner of Phillip Sampson followed.  Were you not drunk when you  came, to the stable'?���I was not  drunk.  Hadn't you left your horses in  the stable all night ?���No.  Questioned by the Bench, witness said :   "I did not have any  whiskey at  all  before going to  Kirby's stable.     I did  not  see  anyone drinking there.    Accused  was in the stable working round.  Accused was milking cows when  he entered the stable, but witness  was not sure what kind of cows.  There was another man working  in  the stable;  he  would  know  him  if   he   saw   him.      Jimmy  Sampson and   Johnny Bob saw.  him  get the  whisky   from  the  manger.    Accused put it in the  manger for him, and he took it  out and had a drink, but did not  give any others a drink. ;  Johnny Bob substantiated the  the testimony of the other witnesses.    He was difficult to examine, on account of his meagre  knowledge of the English tongue.  cWhen Mr. Grimmett was called  into the case he asked for the  privilege   of cross-examing the  witnesses. He managed to secure  a corkscrQw which had been found  on Phillip Sampson when arrested  for being intoxicated, and put it  in  evidence���the one and only  exhibit of the trial���Exhibit A.-  Pointing to the corkscrew,  counsel exclaimed : So you are in  the habit of carrying this instrument ?���Yeah, said Phillip. He  was about as communicative as  Yip On.  What do you carry it for ?���  Oh, to open bottles.  Do,you open many of them ?���  Oh, no, I only get a few. I help  the others open their bottles when  them can't use a knife.  ' Then followed an interesting  dissertation on the easiest manner in which bottles, especially  whiskey bottles, may be opened  without using a corkscrew. "  Mr. Grimmett. pinned Phillip  down to his statements about the  money he had when he arrived  at the stables.  Jimmy Sampson was re-called.  Jimmv understood very little  English, more Chinook and some  Indian. His cross-examination  was like this:  Magistrate  A square deal cannot be beaten, and our past  and present success is due to the confidence of the  people and in our way of doing business,  NEW SPRING SUITS now ready in all the newest  styles and colors.

At times some  information was gathered, but it  all substantiated what the others  had testified and never failed to  shake him; ;     :     - ;  -For the defense Mr. Rhodes,  of the Nicola hotel, testified that  Shrimpton had not purchased any  whisky from him, or taken any  from the bar on the morning in  question and that he had always  known him to be sober and reliable. Mr. Kirby had always enjoined his employees to never  supply liquor to Indians under  any circumstances.  A. Warrington, another stableman, identified the Indians as  having been at the hotel on  Thursday previous, He did not  see accused give them any whisky  In reply to Mr. Grimmett, he had  once found half a bottle of some  dark liquid in a manger, covered  up with straw.    Being a teetotaller he refrained from .an investigation   of the contents and recovered it again.   This was about  three or four days before the In  dians came.    He had on another  occasion found a small flask; hid-  den under a step.    He thought it  might have held whisky, ��� from  the colour of it, but a teamster  whom he showed it to tasted it  and said that it was sweet .nitre!  .(Disorder in the court.)    He did  not know whether that was right  or not, he was a teetotaller   He  saw Informant give a ten dollar  bill in payment formfeed, and ac:  cused borrowed money from him  to make up his change.     Had  seen  no whisky given Indians.  Had never seen accused giving  any liquor to Indians.    Had slept  six weeks in same room as accused and always found him sober  and cleanly.    Had only been out  from England about a year.  . Philip was again re-called and  cross - questioned by the Bench  on the meney he had when he arrived at Nicola hotel.  In summing up Mr. Grimmett  lajd great stress upon this evid  lars for whisky with the $2.35.  As this was impossible it caused  serious doubt as to the reliability  of the witness.

MERRITT  Opposite Bennett & Reid's  Sharp Razors and Clean Towels  -Brown & Durham's. 52tf  AN EXPERT SPEAKS  Writing in the March number  of the Fruit Magazine, Thomas  Cunningham, Inspector, of Fruit  Pests," after stating that the Reciprocity agreement is one.of the  biggest blunders ever made by  any government in the history  of the Dominion, says :  My first objection to the reciprocity agreement is that^it discriminates unfairly against British Columbia fruit-growers.  We had no agricultural policy  worth the name until the advent  of the McBride government.  Since that eventful day we have  been making very rapid progress  in; all lines of agricultural development, horticulture of course  taking the lead.  ThT. British Columbia fruitgrower in most cases is obliged  to clear his land and spend .a year  or two in getting out stumps and  roots and sweetening the soil in  preparation for his trees. You  will thus see that the initial expenses incurred in planting an  orchard in British Columbia are  greatly in excess of our competitors.  So far as our British Columbia  markets are concerned we may.  not suffer very much from competition, but when we meet our  American ��� competitors in what  justly belongs to Canadians (I  refer to the tier of provinces east  of British Columbia), we find a  very unfortunate condition of  affairs.  Another objection to the proposed reciprocal agreement is  that it tends to the introduction  of Free Trade, and if there is any  political heresy that has been a  curse to Canada it is that of Free  .Trade. I had some experience  of this in my early life.  . The British Columbia fruitgrower is still obliged to pay duty  on many of his implements.  During the present week I have  had to put up a hundred dollars  duty on a power sprayer. Early  next month I expect to repeat  the process. Last summer we  paid two hundred dollars duty on  two power spraying machines.  That amounts to an expenditure  of four hundred dollars, which  the American fruit-grower will  not have to expend, so there is  that much in his favor.  "Then again the jnsecticides.  We have to pay duty on fungicides and insecticides, ranging  all the way from 20 to 25 per  cent., and yet meet our competitors upon equal grounds. Surely  there can be nothing fair about  this.   .  There is a silver lining in the  cloud, however���that is, the prospect of the Government who  agreed to this unfortunate arrangement having sealed its own  tlUSi  Our New Wall Papers are exclusive patterns  with a distinct individuality, enabling us to  create exclusive decorative treatment that will  he different from your neighbor's house, and  will reflect your own personality.

This temporary backset will not,  I think, discourage the intending  settlers, for long before the trees  that are now being planted shall  have come into bearing (and I am  glad to say there are many, as is  shown by the returns of inspection for 1910, when 3,770,470 trees  and plants passed through the  inspecting station at Vancouver)  we shall have a Government at  Ottawa fully committed to the  protection of the Canadian producer,  O i  LABOR   SCARCE  Estimates prepared in Winnipeg from information furnished  by the railway and immigration  officials indicate that at least 35,  000 laborers will be required in  the West this year. Each of the  three big railway companies will  be looking for obout 5000 men,  and more than 20,000 experienced  and inexperienced, will be needed  on the farms. The question is  not one of placing workers, but  of satisfying demands. Immigration authorities declare that  there is little likelihood obtaining  enough laborers, especially on the  farms. The reason is that so  many opportunities for available  that applicants do not seek work  on farms or,railway positions except as a last resort.  FINLANDS   CONDITION  Russia's disastrous work in Finland goes on apace with a cynical  indifference to the feelings of the  people. The latest evidence of  this is an amazing appointment  which has, just been made by the  Russian authorities.  Some time ago the Vibork police chief was dismissed, and he  has been succeeded by HerrPek-  oher, whose qualifications for the  post are distinctly original, for  during the Bobrikoff period he  was a police official who participated actively in several anti-  Finnish transactions.  ;When the so-called constituional  government returned in 1906, he  was tried-and condemnedforfor-  gery, and further sentenced to  imprisonment for making illegal  arrests. Thanks to the distribution of palm oil, he contrived to  escape to St. Petersburg, where  he lived for some time under an  assumed name.  But ths Russian authorities resumed the Borrikoffian policy  last year, and Pekoner was able  to return safely to Finland without having to serve his sentence.  And he was actually "compensated" for his "sufferings" to  the tune of $3250 out of state  funds from the Russianized Senate.  Telephone 24  BEHIND DIAMOND VALE STORE  7r"^:.rM^rntt'B. C.

Kennedy &  Cunningham  NICOLA AVENUE  .J  Serious Fire  in Princeton  Similkameen Hotel Razed ��� One Man  Killed  Princeton, Monday:��� The  most disastrous fire in the history  of Princeton utterly wiped out  the Similkameen hotel here last  Sunday morning. But for the  timely discovery of five hundred  feet of three inch hose in the  store of the A. E. Howse company it is probable that the high  wind would have precluded any  possibility of saving the major  portion of the town.  One man, whose identity is at  present unknown, but who is believed to have been a Swede,  was burned to death, his charred  corpse being found.  The Great Northern hotel narrowly avoided destruction, only  the most strenuous efforts saving  it from falling a prey tothe flames.  The installation by the townsite  company of Princeton of a waterworks system was really the reason for the prevention of a general holocaust. Perhaps it is correct to add that this system alone  would not have been sufficient;  but for the discovery of the hose  in the Howse store the fire would  have been beyond control.

The ranchers of the Arrow  Lakes, who have formed a union  for the purpose of making ties  telegraph poles and fence posts  will supply about 15,000 ties.  The railway company's policy  is to purchase as many ties aa  possible from the ranchers in order to assist them in clearing  their land profitably and thereby  helping them to become producers  of fruit and other produce as rapidly as possible.  The winter of 1909-1910 was a  very poor one from the tie-producers point of view, as the snow  in many, parts, of, that district  was not sufficient to enable them  to get the lumber out of the woods  in as great quantities as possible.

RAILWAY  The Canadian Pacific Railway  Company has invited tenders for  the construction of thirty miles  of the Kootenay Central Railway  south of Golden. Ten miles.of  the grade out of .Golden;r were  completed several years ago, and  the new section will be an extension through the Columbia Valley,  whose scenic beauties are unrivalled.  The southern terminus will be  at Galloway,   a station  on   the  main  line of  the   Crow's  Nest  Pass Railway,  near Cranbrook.  A contract, for  building thirty  miles of   this  line  north   from  Galloway was awarded last year  to Foley, Welch & Stewart.   The  work is nearing completion.   Appropriations for the new section  to; be built this   summer wei'e  made at the recent conference  held in Montreal.  The opening of a direct line  from Golden to the Crow's Nest  branch of the C. P. R. will tend  to stimulate the influx of settlers  to a region which has great agricultural and fruit-growing possibilities. This will comprise the  principal construction to be carried out by the company this year  in British Columbia.  Land Act  Nicola Land District.'
