 J** r-^?l^f^0-'S--^t\%  ^ "���'���;APf?i2jfM  *  Vol.; 2, No   8  MERRITT, B. C. APRIL 7, 1911  Price 5 Cents  Manager of Diamond Vale  Collieries Inspects Work  T ���; J. Smith Gives Four Town-  site Lots to Hospital.  T. J. Smith, general manager  of the Diamond Vale Collieries,  visited town during last weekend. He has quite recovered  from the serious attack of typhoid  fever which laid him low after  his return from the old country.  While here he met a committee  from the hospital directors, who  asked if he would be willing to  donate some land for a hospital  site. Mr. Smith readily acceded  to the request, and before his  departure oh' Tuesday morning  arranged for the ' purchase of  Lots 1 and 2 in Block 50 by the  colliery company from the Diamond Vale Townsite. The Diamond Vale Supply Co. contributed  Lots 3 and 4, making a total of  four lots for a hospital site.  These are valued at two thousand dollars.  In company with Superintendent Browitt, Mr. Smith visited  the collieries and inspected the  work teere. No. 3 slope is down  a little over 400 feet, in good coal.  The Browitt seam, a little east of  No. 3, is opened up 150 feet.' It  is proposed to carry this down to  three hundred feet and then  drive east and west across  the measures, and bring the coal  out by No. 3. There is five feet  of clean coal in this seam. A  number of orders, one for .400  ^J^aat.3K^kriia^elcome^ranti  force  of  men  are at  a  large  work.  Mr. Smith is one of the leading  spirits in the Vancouver Horse  Show Association, and has a large  number of entries this season.  While he was away on his trip he  exhibited some of his horses in  Dublin, London and New York  shows. At the former two horses  caught his fancy and he purchased them, being told at the  time, by a man who has been-a  regular visitor at the Dublin show  for the past twenty years, that  they .were the two best animals  he had ever seen there. Mr. Smith  took them with him to the New  In the town premises he will add  additional departments, ice-cream  soft drinks and confectionery.  That the public will reward the  enterprise of the firm goes without saying. A pastry expert will  give his entire attention to that  department.   o   A NOTED ARTIST  Walter Montgomery, perhaps  the best known of those photographers whose specialty is the  reproduction of unusual, unique  and attractive"aspects of out-door  life, has travelled, in his efforts  to secure photographs, across  frozen prairies and through storm-  swept mountains. He has thirsted as only they thirst who become  thirsty in snow, and dare not  drink. For certain landscape  views he has had to clamber up  hill-sides when a precarious foot  hold was a constant threat.  Last summer he spent in the  Nicola _ Valley photographing  points of interest and interesting  phases of local life. He went into the wilder parts of the province during the winter, spending  the time'with his camera on his  back roaming through vast stretches of timber, lands, photographing ."limits" for the owners in  Vancouver: He returned to the  valleya-\veek ago'and expects to  remain here for. a"few months.  , Montgomery intends to make a  tour of-'the'world ih a short time.  L^J^fic^^iective-will in all probr  ability be the" Argentine, after  which S. Africa and Australia.  ground that the business men responsible for the incorporation proceedings  are also responsible for the voting  qualifications. .   :       X:-  This is a false impression���none of  them were aware of the qualifications  prior to the receipt of the Letters  Patent. The qualifications are according to law made and provided, and differ  from the law in only one particular,  namely, the Elections Act calls "for a  residence qualification of twelve months  for the first election, whereas the Letters  Patent authorise a residence qualification of three months, which, of course,  gives a vote to residents that would  otherwise be without that privilege.  The form of nomination for Mayor or  Alderman is very simple, and should, be  worded :��� " ' .  '' We hereby nominate   "as a candidate at the election now  " about to be held for (state  "whether 'Mayor' or 'Alderman')  "in the Municipality of the City .of  "Merritt.  (Signed) "A. B." (proposer)  "C. D." (seconder)  (Date)  "I consent to the above  nomina-  "tion.  (Signed) " E. F." (candidate)"  The same electors can nominate different persons for Mayor or Alderman,  provided separate nomination papers  are made out.  The, person nominated must sign the  nomination paper. . - r  J. Corbitt and his wife from  Godey Creek were in town this  morning on business. They expect to take a trip to Vancouver  during the summer.   ���0   Fred Baker, of Ashcroft, has  been visiting relatives in town  this week. Mr. Baker has purchased an outfit to treck the Cariboo trail. Those who know him  will also know that he will make  good.  Merritt Mercantile Go,  Will Enlarge Premises  J. H. Murphy, representing  Gait Bros.,-has been doing business with local merchants in a  specialty line the past few days.  Mr. Murphy was in the valley  for Smith, Davidson & Wright,  before there was any Merritt.  Max Ecker has a valuable horse  in his stable now, a three thousand dollar pure bred Hambleton-  ian stallion, Admiral Togo. ' He  expects to travel the animal during the coming summer, unless  hu receives an offer for purchase.  York show, and there they caught  the eye of the American War  Department. On one of them  particularly, Earl of Ballinaslloe,  did the army experts direct their  attention. According to a bulletin  of the department recently issued  this bay hunter will henceforth  be a model from which U. S.  army officers will select their  mounts, the Earl having been  pronounced a perfect specimen  of the military horse. Needless  to say, Mr. Smith is proud of the  animal, and has, since the issue  of the bulletin, been busy receiving congratulations.  The stallion Militabo, which  has been in the valley for the  pasjt two years, will remain here  for another season.  COLLETT RANCH SOLD  Charles Collet has sold his ranch  near the Indian reserve in the  vicinity of Lower Nicola. The  deal involves about ten thousand  dollars. There are about two  hundred acres in the farm. The  negotiations were conducted by  the Southern B. C. Lands, for a  Vancouver man.  9 . O   GOVERNMENT ORDERS  Attorney-General's Office,  Victoria, B. C,  -April  K. V. CONSTRUCTION  James McDonnell, of McDonnell & Gzowski & Co, contractors  for the Kettle Valley Railway,  stated to the News last evening  that another steam shovel will be  put to work grading immediately!  The steam.shovel at present in  use has been worked day and  night for about six weeks. No  steeel. laying will be undertaken  for another two months yet.  Frank Smith, formerly with"  McDonnell & Gzowski, now in  charge of the Middlesboro boarding house, is to be married tonight to Miss MacDonald at the  Coldwater hotel.  local man has been able to compete with the large contracting  firms of Vancouver, meetingthem  on workmanship and materials,  and being able to obtain his raw  materials right in Merritt at a  lower figure than the Vancouver  firms may ship here. The flooring of the new freight shed is to  be built of hard maple and, will  cost one hundred dollars per  thousand feet.  Mr. Boch has started his work  already and will rush the job to  completion.  The new freight shed will be  built on Garcia street near the  present track.  H. Fraser, who has been in  charge of a- night shift on- the  steam shovel for the past six  weeks, arrived in town yesterday.  His friend Fritz Paulson is seriously ill in the hospital in Princeton.

When he  was here before Mr. Maloney was  a business partner of Mr. Dar-  rah's in the management of the  Palace Bakery; and his work is  well known to customers of that  institution. The growth of the  business has been such that it is  now found that the present ovens  are inadequate to cope with the  d 'mand. So Mr. Darrah has decided to have another and larger  ovbn  constructed   immediately, j  H. Priest, Esq.,  Merritt, B. C.  Sir,-  Re Incorporation���Municipality  of Merritt.  In answer to your letter of the  28th ultimo,, I beg to inform you  that parties who hold Agreements  for Sale are not entitled to vote  at the Election ; only those who  are Freeholders,. Homesteaders  and Pre-emptors are entitled to  vote. The same rule applies all  over this province.  Your obedient servant,  J. P. McLeod,  Deputy Attorney-General.  There seems to be a general misunderstanding in reference to the different  qualifications for Mayor, Alderman and  Voters for the coming election, so perhaps a brief summary would help dispel  some illusions.  ��� Candidates for Mayor or Alderman  must, have a Voter's qualification in  addition to being assessed $1000 for  Mayor and $500 for Alderman respectively.. ,:.  The voter's palifications are : being a  British subject of the age of 21 years  and a freeholder, homesteader or pre-  emptor within the municipality, with a  resident qualification of three months."'.

The object of the  meeting: to hear an expression of  views from the various candidates  on certain important public questions.

Merritt:  Sunday School and Bible Class,  at 2.30 p. m.  Evening Service at 7.30. p. m.  Rev.W.J. Kidd,B.A., B. D.  During the week the charter  for the Nicola Valley General  Hospital was received by M. L.  Grimmett, who has been acting  for the provisional board. The  trustees of the miners' fund have  turned over to A. W. Strickland,  the treasurer of the hospital, all  the money they have collected to  date, amounting in all to $1576.  Now that the incorporation  papers have been received, it is  requested that all monies collec-  tedbe turned over to the treasurer as soon as possible.  At a meeting of the board this  week the offer of T. J. Smith and  the Diamond Vale Supply Co., of  Lots 1, 2, 3, 4, in Block 50, for a  hospital site, was accepted, and  a vote of thanks tendered to the  donors.  , THE POLICE, GRIST  This morning John Matson, a  husky Finn, was arrested by Constable Vachonand charged with  carrying' concealed weapons, to  wit a pair of "knuckle dusters",  and" attempting to obstruct an  officer in the course of his duty.  The brass knuckles found in his  possession when arrested were  so constructed that had he used  themon anyone there would in  all probability have been a funeral to follow. Over six feet tall  one would think that he were  able to take care of himself without any artificial aids. Evidently the bench were not of this opinion! and they let the culprit  down very lightly, fining him  $36.75, which was soon paid.  DIAMOND VALE LOTS  The following sales are reported  in the Diamond Vale Townsite :  Lot 3 Block 36, A. Prevost, town;  Lot2 -Block��� 21t-J���Leitchrtown ;~  Lot 3 Block 21, N. Forsythe,  Vernon ; Lots 12 and 13 Block 21,  W. Grey, town; Lot 7 Block 26,  J. A. Stanley, town ; Lot 3 Block  164, W. R. Langstaff, town. The  demand for the lots for homesites  is steadily increasing. It is expected that the location of the  hospital on   the   townsite   will  further improve it.   o���   A.- E. Howse Bought Building From J. Collett Today.  A. E. Howse this morning completed the purchase of the building now'occupied by the Merritt  Mercantile company, from Jos.  Collett. Just what the amount  paid for the building and lot we  are unable to state.  To The News this afternoon AX  E. Howse stated that he intends  tocommence immediately on the  construction of a fifty-foot addition to the rear of the premises.'  This is estimated to cost $4000,  and will take two months to com-'  plete.  When the addition is completed  the upstairs part of the building  will be used as a furniture and  millinery display room, the latter ,  under the supervision of a capable milliner.     A  dressmaking*  establishment will also be put in.  this department being in charge "  of a well known local dressmak- .  er.      The  ground floor will  be  utilized for  the  hardware,   dry  goods and grocery departments';  and the basement will be used '  for storing goods in bulk. ', "  The expansion of his business '  necessitates larger quarters,' arid  this -was the motive for the' pur- '.  chase, from Jos. Collett." G.'Ait- "  ken-and W.

JOHN BOCH GETS CONTRACT  John Boch, the local contractor, was successful in bidding for  the contract for the construction  of the new C. P. R. freight shed.  It is gratifying to learn that a  ALASKA-CANADA  Business men in Seattle have  received a word of warning from  James Wickersham, delegate to  Congress from Alaska, that unless they take some action toward  helping Alaska in her efforts to  obtain better government, the  tremendous volume of business  that is pouring into the Sound  metropolis from the North, will  be diverted into other channels!  "Since the discovery of gold,  Alaska has been mainly responsible for the gigantic commercial  strides made by Seattle," he said  ' 'and in return, Seattle has done in regard  little or nothing toward helping  Alaska. Seattle's monopoly of  the Alaska business is riot as firm  as some people here believe.: Vancouver and Prince Rupert, in  British Columbia, are awake to  the great possibilities in Alaska,  and are reaching out. The Canadian cities are closer to Alaska  than Seattle, and their activities  in bidding for trade are bearing  fruit;"'     '    -  BOARD OF TRADE  The regular   meeting   of the  Board of Trade  was held   last  evening in the Mclntyre block.  A large number of members were  present.    It was,decided to ask  candidates   in   the forthcoming  elections   the    following  questions:   Waterworks, sanita7  tion,   fire protection,  education,  street   improvements,    street  lighting,   police   protection,  administration   of   justice,   reim-'  bursement to  property  owners  who have already laid sidewalks  at" their own expense,  municipal  ownreship of public utilities, and  the^variousiicensesyaiso^it^Syiir"  be endeavored to ascertain the  views of candidates upon single  tax.  A resolution was passed urging  upon the provincial government  the necessity for the construction  of the Godey Creek road at an  early date.  Another resolution passed was  that requesting Ralph Smith, M.  P., and Senator Bostock to try  and secure an appropriation for  a separate post offce building  for this town.  An effort will be made to have  more direct mail communicaiion  with Princeton.  The secretary was dirdcted to  communicate with Superintendent Graham, of the C. P. R., in  regard,to securing an adequate  passenger service for the summer; olso to endeavor to move  him in the work of having a protecting fence along the slide between Merritt and Coutlee. The  super, has already made promises  to these matters, but  so far nothing has been done to .  implement the promises.  ���.-<)-  CREDITORS' MEETING  A meeting of all creditors of the  Middlesboro Mercantile company  has been called for next Tuesday  evening in Reid's Hall, on Granite avenue.  /[  Joe Guichon came down from  Quilchena on business on Thursday. THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday, April 7   1931  THE TOLL OF DEATH  The following pen picture by  W. G. Shephard, a newspaper  man who witnessed the death of  over one hundred men and girls  "in the New York shirtwaist factory last week, will give a good  idea of what it was like :���  MUSHROOM   OF  SMOKE  As I reached the scene ol the  fire a mushroom of smoke hung  over the building.    I glanced up  and on the edge of the roof saw  a young man walking along with  his overcoat over his arm.    He  appeared to be waiting for the  fire engines, but none were there.  There was none even in sight or  within  hearing.    I noticed that  the man was well dressed and  had a; jaunty air. His hands were  -in his   trouser   pockets.      Five  minutes  later I saw him jump  out into space, his overcoat parachuted in the air beside him, and  a moment later he was lifeless on  the sidewalk.  I looked up to the seventh floor.  There was a living picture in  each window ��� screaming girls  waving their arms.  "Call the firemen!" they  screamed���scores of them.  " Get a ladder," cried others.  They were alive and whole and  sound as we stood on the sidewalk. I could not help thinking  of that. We called to them not  to jump. We heard the siren of  a . fire engine in some distant  block. Then other sirens sounded  from other directions.  "Here they come," we yelled.  "Don't jump.    Stay there."  One girl climbed onto a window  sash. Those behind her tried to  hold her back. Then she dropped  into space. I didn't notice  whether those above watched her  drop, because I had turned away.  Then came that first thud-dead  impression. I looked up. Another  girl was climbing onto the window sill. Others were crowding  behind her. She dropped. I  watched her fall and heard the  sound. Two windows away,two  girls were climbing onto the sills;  they were fighting and crowding  each other for air; behind them I  saw many screaming heads. They  fell almost together, but I heard  two distinct thuds.  Suddenly the flames broke out  from the windows below them  and curled up into their faces.  The firemen began to raise a  ladder.  JUMPED  THROUGH NET  Others took a life-net, and  while they were rushing to the  sidewalk two more girls shot  down. The firemen held it under  them, the two bodies broke it;  the grotesque smile of a dog  jumping through a paper hoop  struck me. Before they could  move the net another girl's body  flashed into it. The thuds were  mst as loud, it seemed, as if there  had been no net there. It seemed  to me that the thuds were so loud  that they might have been heard  all over the city, like dull explosion roars.  I had counted ten ; then my  dull sense began to work automatically. I noticed things that  had not occurred to me before to  notice, little details that the first  shock had blinded me to. Hooked  up to see whethi r those above  watched those who fell. I noticed  that they did���watched them  every inch of the way down, and  probably heard the roaring thuds  that we heard.  I looked up and saw a face in  the midst of all the horror. A  young man at a window helped a  girl to the window sill, then held  her out, deliberately, away from  the building, and let her drop.  He seemed cool and calculating;  he held out a second girl in the  same way and let her drop; then  he held out a third girl. They did  not resist. . I noticed that they  were as unresisting as if-he were  helping them on to a street car  instead of into eternity.  Undoubtedly he saw that a terrible death awaited them in the  flames and- his aid was only a  terrible chivalry.  LOVE AND  THE FLAMES  Then came loveamid the flames.  He brought another girl to the  window. Those of us who were  looking saw her put her arms  around him and kiss him. Then  he held her out into space and  dropped her. But, quick as a  flash, he was on the window sill  himself. His coat fluttered upward, the air filled his trouser  leg, I could see that he wore tan  shoes and hose. His hat was on  his head.  Thud-dead ! Thud-dead ! They  went into eternity together. I  saw his face before they covered  it; could see in it that this was  a real man. He had done his  best. We found out later that in  the room in which he stood many  girls were being burned to death  by the flames and were screaming  in an inferno of heat and smoke.  He chose the easiest way and was  brave enough to help the girl he  loved into eternity, after she had  given him a good-bye kiss. He  leaped with energy, as if he believed that he could cheat gravitation, and would arrive first in  that mysterious land of eternity,  only a second of time distant, to  receive her. But her thud-dead  came first.  The firemen raised their ladders. They reached only to the  sixth floor.. I saw the last girl  jump for it and miss it. Then  the faces disappeared from the  windows. By now the crowd was  large, though all this had occured  in less than seven minutes, the  start of the fire and the thuds and  deaths. I heard screams around  the corner and hurried there���  what I had seen before was not  so horrible as what followed.  Girls were burning to death before our eyes; there were jams in  'the windows; no one was lucky  enough to be able to jump, it  seemed. But one by one the jam  broke. Down came bodies in a  shower, burning, smoking, lighted bodies with the dishevelled  hair of the girls trailing upward.  They had fought each other to  die by jumping instead of by fire.^  There were 32 in- that shower^  The flesh was cooked and the  clothes on most of them were  burned away.  The git Is who^ jumped on the  other side of the street had done  their best to fall feet down, but  the fire-tortured, suffering ones  fell inertly, didn't care how they  fell, just so death came- to them  on the sidewalk instead of in the  fiery furnace behind .them.  The floods of water from the  firemen's hose that ran from the  gutter were actually stained red  with blood.  HEAPS OF BROKEN BODIES  On the sidewalk lay heaps of  broken bodies. I saw a policeman  later go about with tags,-which  he fastened, with a wire to the  wrists of the dead girls; numbering each one with a lead pencil  and I saw him fasten'tag number  54 on the wrist of a girl who wore  an engagement ring.,-        ...  A fireman who came down stairs  from the building said there were  at least 50 bodies in the big room  on the seventh floor.,' Another  fireman told me that more, girls  had jumped down an air shaft in  the rear of the building. I- went  back there into the narrow court  and saw a heap of dead girls.  And there I saw the first fire  escape I had seen., It was narrow.  The fireman had told me that  many girls had gone down it and  that others had fallen from it in  the rush. But on the two fronts  of the building there were no  fire-escapes. The only way down  was the thud-dead, long way.  These girls were all shirt-waist  makers.," As I looked at the heap  of dead bodies I remembered  their great strike of last year, in  which these girls demanded more  sanitary work rooms and more  safety precautions iri the "result.  THREATEN TO STRIKE  W. L. Park, general manager  of the Illinois Central ^Railroad,"  and H. B. Perham of St Louis,  representing the telegraphers,:  and" J. W. Miller, chairman of the  Louisana division   of   the   Tele  graphers' Union, conferred in  Chicago recently on the wage  question. A strike is threatened  for April 1 by the men, who ask  an increase of 20 per cent, in  wages. At the strike vote recently taken, 95per cent' of the  telegraphers voted to go out unless a satisfactory increase was  granted.  THREE NEW   POSTOFFICES  On April 1 three new post-  offices were added to the postal  facilities of the province. . One  of the three new offices will be  located in Vancouver Heights and  will be served from the Vancouver general post office every day  except Sunday. Another will be  at Queen sborough, near New  Westminster, which will be" served from New Westminster, also  daily except Sunday. The "third  will be at Lome Mine, in the interior, which will be served from  Lillooet monthly.  M. L.

STANDING THE TEST  Various English .publications  have-had verynice things to say  of Hon. Price Ellison, Minister of  Finance and:Agriculture in Premier JMcBride's cabinet, and while  these must; be gratifying to the  minister, they are even more so  to his friends. The latest appreciation in an English paper is an  apt eulogy which aims at analysis  in'the columns of Vanity Pair.  That publication incidentally  touches a; little on the strenuous-  ness of his early life, but Price's  friends could go deeper in that  phase of it, for therein; to them,  lies his great strength when they  contrast his present position with  that of twenty years ago and less.  Advanceinent' has not swollen his  head a whit and there is not a  pinch of the snob in his make-up.  If. he had occasion to do so he  could go through the streets of  Vernon  tomorrow  iri   overalls,  coatless and with a single suspender,   and feel quite as   unabashed and natural as of old;  and none of his old tillicums of  those days could meet him on the  sidewalks of Victoria today without receiving as hearty agreeing  as ever they did, no matter in  what company the minister of  finance might be at the time.  This may seem a trivial estimate  or test of worth, but it is not.  In fact, it is a test for strength  of character and true worth that  "there are only too few of our  public men who will measure up  to.      Hospitality- is  one of the  duties which  social   convention  lays upon the public man, and  there will doubtless be many instances in  which  Price . Ellison'  wiil" respond to it when the guest  who partakes will  contrast the  circumstance with a similar experience   associated    with   the  blazing embers of a camp fire in  some   old-time   Okanagan   cow  camp.     Only a few days ago,  when discussing his preferment  with mutual friends, the incident  of the ungracious attack made|  upon . him   by Parker   Williams;  came up, and this friend remark-:  ed: " when Parker Williams un-  lertake^to^follow^Pnce���Eiiisoir  all day" on a trail he will find  himself long before night a mighy  tired man." Indeed wnen Parker  Williams'   blatant   spirit dema-  goguery prompted him to identify  Price Ellison with the sumptuous-  living pampered rich, and himself  as the champion of the toilers, he  never shot wider of the mark nor  indulged in a more rank piece of  the forensic humbug for which  he has become so noted. ���Hedley Gazette.  -o ���  WHAT A SHAME!

LAB_EL> 1 2  GOVERNMENT  ADVANCES  We are heartily in accord with,  and will consistently and constantly advocate certain matters  which were brought up at the  Farmers' Institute banquet, and  previously in the House at Victoria, by H. H. Matthews and  Alex. Lucas respectively, namely,  government advances to settlers  and permission to municipalities  or districts to borrow money to  be expended in the construction  of irrigation works. It is legislation that will be "advanced"  in the Dominion, but which has  _been_successfullyi_experimented  with in Australia and New  Zealand.  Briefly the proposals are as follows : That the provincial government should advance money  to settlers at low rates of interest  for a term of, say, twenty years,  repayable at any earlier date at  theoption of the settler, to enable  him to clear his land, put in  crops, etc. Also that the government permit municipalities or  districts to borrow money for the  construction of irrigation works  in such sections of the province  as irrigation may be necessary.  . In regard to the first: Advancing money to settlers was, we  believe, a policy first adopted in  New Zealand: In so far as it  proved an attraction to immigrants it has been a success in  that country. It has failed, on  the,other hand, as a financial  scheme, for the administration  which initiated the policy, through  what appears to have been a  ridiculous short-sightedness in  handling the funds provided for  the project. The New Zealand  government did not have surplus  but of which it could lend money,  as the provincial government has  here, but had to go abroad and  borrow. When that dominion  borrowed money the borrowing  was done on a large scale, monies  required for various purposes  being  lumped   together.     The  government proposed lending  money to settlers at three per  cent., repayable in forty years.  On the other hand, the gross  amount it borrowed abroad was  only obtained at three and a half  per cent. Thus there was a nett  loss, even at forty years, of one-  half per cent per annum ; then  again the main loan was only  floated on a thirty year term, so  the money had to come out of  subsequent loans to repaj- the  interest on the forty year loans  made to settlers. But as we have  already stated, the policy of advancing money to settlers has  proved a great attraction. Certain of the opponents of the  scheme, when it was first mooted  by the government, urged in opposition that it would not induce  the right kind of settlers to come  out to the Maori country. Time,  however, has proved that those  were wrong in their predictions.  Now in regard to the proposal  to permit municipalities or districts to borrow money for irrigation works. It is obviously  impossible to bring municipalities  into the question. It is an intricate problem to deal with. At  present the province is subdivided  into counties which are extremely  large���too ponderous, in fact, for  such-schemes.���There-would-first  have to be a further subdivision  of the present counties, in order  to get a district of the right size  for efficient administration in this  connection. Again these smaller  districts would have to have a  certain corporative status and  administration. In order to borrow money for any purpose there  must be something tangible for  the lender to deal with. He must  have some security for his money  ���something on which he could  foreclose in case of failure to pay  interest.  In the state of Victoria, where  certain sections of the country  are under irrigation Water Boards  were created. Money was borrowed at good rates for the  boards. The Commissioners  were in effect simply county  councillors. The whole area  affected was incorporated. Thus  there _3vas no difficulty in borrowing money. For many years there  was manifest a great deal of dissatisfaction with the administration of the irrigated districts.  The weak point lay in the fact  that the members of boards were  elected by the very people with  whom they had to deal on the  question of water rates. Sometimes the rates would be so reduced to the settlers that the receipts over and above expenses  did not meet the interest on   the  capital investment. This problem  Was solved two years ago by the  Victorian government by the  direct appointment of members  of boards, entirely independent  of the settlers. Thus the commissioners were nottrammelled  with the necessity to secure the  approval of the people with whom  they had to deal by means of a  voting franchise.  At first glance it would appear  that this is a matter readily disposed of. Look at it closer, however. You will perceive that  there is a certain amount of" justification for the settlers when  they claim the right to choose  the men to adminster works  created out of capital secured by  a mortgage on their holding���for  the bonds issued were tantamount  to a mortgage. Space does not  permit us to go further into this  question at the present time, but  we shall refer to it again in the  near future. Meantime we shall  be very pleased to receive any  communications from local residents upon these important  matters.  We have been informed by W.  E. Scott that Alex Lucas has  been endeavoring for some time  past to secure the appointment  of a Royal Commission to investigate these matters. From the  same source we learn that Hon.  Price Ellison is also a strong advocate of the ideas advanced by  Alex Lucas and that there is a  strong possibility that the government will decide'upon the appointment of a commission. It  is to be hoped that if the government should approve this scheme  that they will see that there is  no delay if receiving and acting  upon the advice of the commissioners.

You see the statement every flay  that the one cause ol' baldness Is dandruff.     But Is It?.        ...  True, dandruff often precedes the  departure  of  the  hair.  It Is equally true that you know  men with a shock of hair you can  hardly pull' a comb through, who have  carried around a dandruff laden collar  as Ions; as you  have  known  them.  You have also seen men whose scalp  was kept as clean as a baby's whose  hair, was  surely  departing.  That dandruff talk sounds'well and  convinces a good many; of us, "but let  us  not  fool'ourselves.':' -'���      -  Of course dandruff isn't a good thing  to carry'around, but' it is-only 'an:-Indication.. ; ��� .;���:-,���.

BARWICK  Nicola ��� Merritt  A Good Idea in Hair  Treatment*  Th* trouble with most women's hair  la that they .won't take the time to  give it proper treatment. If you want  your hair to have that look of luatre  and vitality, you must  take care of it.  You cannot expect to have splendid  hair if you simply run a comb through  it in the morning-���give it a dab on  the outor edge with a brush���throw  it into a braid���switch it around the  head���Jab In a few hair pins���and let  it  so at that.  Hair is like any other growing- thing  ���It needs attention���it needs care���It  Heeds thorough grooming regularly���  not  only the  hair  but  the scalp.  If you have the time and patience  you won't need any hair tonic���but  most women haven't. The next best  thing is Nyal's Hirsutone. It Is the  best thing offered to take the place  of hours  of combing and brushing.  It tones up the roots, brightens the  color, Improves the texture and makes  It stay gracefully where  It is  put.  Hirsutone literally revitalizes the  neglected  hair. ���  Tour Nyal - Druggist cheerfully reo-  ommends Hirsutone because he knows.

On Thursday night Mar. 30th  in Reeds Hall the members of the  International Order of Good Templars had their weekly session.  The Good Templars are moving  on in Merritt. Since the order  commenced on February 28th the  membership of the Lodge has increased every week with men and  women who are enthusiasts in the  temperance movement, which  speaks of a solid and substantial  temperance movement taking  root in Merritt.  Every society has a- name,  whatever the aim of that society  may be, so it was essential that  the Merritt lodge of thel.O.G.T.  should have a name ��� attached to  it, several names were mentioned  but the decision of the members  was that the new lodge be called  (Cold Water Lodge No 86) this  name becomes the new order fine  and dandy, nestled close to the  river of that name whose stream  is pure which is the ideal of the  order orGoodTemplarswe^think-  and rightly so that the temperance order in Merritt should bear  a name of this kind.  The lodge has now got fully  commenced the charter from the  Strand Lodge has arrived and  was read over, to the members at  their session on Thursday night  last which binds Merritt to possess an International order of  Good Templars as long as there  are men and women possessed  with the love of temperance and  and the interest of fallen humanity in its midst.  Attached to its work there is  what is termed a programme committee whose duty it is to see that  whenever available time is secured vocal and instrumental music  and varied speeches of interest  are gone into, this affords interest  .every week. y-y7-X-rz^y -.-.'7-;:.

Saturday Sunset has  come out permanently with a  front of illustrations of scenes  depicting the industrial and other  resources of the province. It is  marked improvement over the old  form of the paper and accredit to  the publishers. With the exception, possibly, of Saturday Night,  there is no other weekly paper in  the Dominion which is the equal  of this paper in the, mechanical  and editorial deparments.  The news that Percy Goden-  rath is starting/a paper in the  Steamboat camp'will be received  with mixed feelings by other  journalists throughout the province, and it is safe to say that  at least ten newspapermen. are  disappointed with the news.  They had intended doing that  themselves ; but Godenrath has  forestalled them. This camp has  been cleverly press-agented; at  no time has there been too much  news of it in the coast press, but  whenever the promoters of the  three leading claims saw public  interest flagging they dropped an  article or two calculated to stir  the calm surface of business. It  has been artistic, work, neatly  executed. It will' be a live camp.

ELSA C. DAVEY. Applicant.  .i Hush McGuiie, A^ent,  Feb. Eth, 1911. 3-12  A decision has been arrived at  by the Canadian Pacific Railway  company to build 150 -miles of  railway through the .Qu'Appelle  Valley. The Company will also  erect a summer hotel at Fort  Qu'Appelle.  John McMillan, manager of the  Vancouver city market, spent  Friday and Saturday driving  around the country accompanied  by H. P. Lee. He met with considerable success from the growers and shippers in this vicinity.  Up to date it has been too much  profit for someone, while the  goods were being transferred  from the grower to.the consumer.  With the middle man out the farr;  mer should get a better price for  his goods and the consumer get  fresher, better and cheaper produce. The result : Two parties  happy, namely, the producer and  the consumer.  A "good one on lawyers" comes  from Dumferline, via W. Smith,  of this city. A lawyer's prize  drake wandered into a butcher's  shop in Dumferline and ate whatever he could reach. The butcher  consulted the lawyer-owner, with  a view to ascertain what he might  demand as damages, also whether  hei was entitled to do so. The  lawyer said ther was no doubt  but that the butcher was entitled  to ten shillings damages, and advised him to go ahead and ask  the owner of the drake for the  money. "Well," said the butcher,  "you're the owner !" The legal  luminary was not taken aback at  all. "Well," he said, "��� I pay you  ten shillings, but you owe me  fifteen shillings for my advice !"  The Kelowna Courier says:  "The Island of Tall in-the Philli-  pines has suffered severely from  volcanic disturbances." This is  a case in which a Tall story  causes anguish.
