 ���    "VJi'lV  Vol. 2, No   21  MERRITT, B. C.   JULY 7, 1911  Price 5 Cents  Celebration Was  Big Success  Most Successful Event Ever Held  in Nicola Valley  The Dominion Day Celebration  in Merritt on Saturday last was  an event that every resident of  ^erritt had good reason to be  proud of.    From the firing of the  Salute in the morning at 7 a. m.  until the dance was over at 12  p. nu everything passed off without an accident or mishap to mar  the fine program which kept the  large crowds interested and pleas-  Jed from the time when the procession of school children headed  by the Merritt Band   marched  from the school to the grounds  where the sports and races were  to be held.   The day was ideal.  ^The town was thronged with a  large number of visitors all of  whom seemed to enter thoroughly into the spirit of the occasion  and appeared to be more than  pleased  with   the   programme  provided for their entertainment.  In the childrens races every  event was keenly contested and  the entries for each, which were  {many,  were sharp on time, so  ��� that the committee in charge of  the races had no trouble in starting and finishing on time, this  part of the programme.  The baseball match at 10.30 a.  m. was between Merritt and  Middlesboro, and the game from  a spectator's standpoint was both  good and very amusing. The  score at the end of seven innings  ~ stood' Merritt, i0; Middlesboro",  * 12. In the football match five  teams entered. The winning  team were from Middlesboro.  The horse.races attracted the  ) largest portion of the crowd dur-  ing the afternoon and every event  as advertised with the exception  of one,  had plenty of entries.  ,      One-half-mile dash; J.

Purse $15 and $10.  The  Cowboy's  turning stakes race  was won by H. Jackson 1st, Alex (Indian) 2nd. and E. A. Collett 3rd. Purse,  ,   $15, $10and$5.  The tug of war was one of the  main features of the day. Five  teams of fine men each entered  and a game of main strength and  endurance was ended by a team  from No. 1 mine at Middlesboro  winning the purse.  The Ladies' Auxiliary of the  hospital  had   the   refreshment  :   privileges for the day and the  :   dance in Menzies Hall in the even-  ���',;.��� ing.   This latter was particularly  V successful.  The only event which might  have marred the day's sport was  the accident to young H. Castil-  ;   liou, whose pony rolled on him,  i   during the pony dash, fracturing  his collar bone.  Owing to the brief notice the  I   B. C. Horse did not turn out in  sufficient force to justify the officials in holding the events.  y     When all expenses in connection with the celebration  were  ��� paid off, the finance committee  ;   had about $250 in hand to turn  over to the hospital fund.  day. For the final exercises a  large number of parents and  relatives of the pupils attended.  Eric Brolin and May Olson  were awarded prizes for punctuality and deportment throughout  the scholastic year. A number  of pupils were found eligible for  promotion; the roll for this will  be completed by the re-opening  of the fall term. The report of  the principal showed an average  daily attendance of over 150  pupils. Ten or twelve of the  children have been found eligible  for the high school and it is  thought if all eligibles attend  next term it will be possible to  form a nucleus for a high school  here next year.  At the ck>3e of the examination Rev. T. Walker made a  short and sweet speech which  was very much appreciated by  the boys and girls and Mayor  I.aEastwbod and the three members of the school board; Messrs.  Cleasby, Jackson and Forsythe,  gave a big and sweet treat of  caddies, nuts, oranges, bananas  etc., which was mightily appreciated by the boys and girls.  A splendid spirit between teachers, pupils and school board was  evident and all parted in high  spirits.  Date of reopening will be published in the News.  tulameen  Diamonds  MR. WINNY'S DEATH.  By the death of R. H. Winny,  who   expired    in   London   last  week, the Nicola valley has lost  one  of   its . most  enterprising  agriculturalists and stock breeders.   . Deceased   was   the   pro:  prietor of the Nicola Stock Farm  at  Nicola   and an "enthusiastic  member   of   the   Nicola Valley  Agricultural   and  Horticultural  Association, and as such he always manifested  a willingness  to further insofar as it lay within  his power the interests of that  association.   The news of his demise was not entirely unexpected  as he had been ailing for some  considerable time past and just  prior   to  his   visit to   the   old  country had consulted a specialist  in Vancouver.   It is thought that  he never completely got over the  shock of hisjwife's deathJastDe-  cember.   Besides his three small  children he leaves a number of  relatives in  the valley.    G. R.  Clapperton, of Fruitlands, is his  father-in-law.    During his  absence in the old country Burkett  Jackson has been managing his  farm;  buf   it is not yet known  what disposition will be made of  the estate.  So  far  Not  Thought  to be  in  Payable   Quantities  Mr. Charles Camsell, Dominion  Government Mineralogical Surveyor, arrived in the city from  Tulameen and Princeton, en route  to Vancouver on Thursday afternoon. He is famous as the discoverer of diamonds in the Tulameen, about which discovery so  much has been written in Canadian papers, and which has caused  such widespread discussion in the  old world and throughout the  .Empire.- ' .' .."  ���In conversation withrthe News  yesterday afternoon, Mr. Camsell  stated that he and his party had  been working' iri the Tulameen  for about three weeks, endeavor-;  ing. to extract, some more specimen diamonds from the rocks, j  '"'.In this I cannot say we were  very successful," said Mr. Cam-:  sell, "inasmuch as the river was  very high and we were unable to  go down so far as we did last  year. We secured a few fair  samples, however, and I have  sent them on to Vancouver.''  '' Are they in payable quantities in the Tulameen .?.'.' he was  asked.  " Well," he replied, "I cannot  say that I think they are.   There  is'undoubtedly a large and valu-J  able deposit there, but we have*  found that the chromite, in which  the diamonds   occur,   being   so  hard,.and riot having disintegt  rated, or rotted and softened, as  in the case of diamond pipes iri  the  Kimberley fields,  tends to  powder upas soon as the pressure  of the surrounding rock is removed.    The shock involved in  breaking' up the rock around the  chromite also shatters the diamonds ;'.. so that we found that  about all we were able to get was  in  the form of fine dust, and  valueless*   We did however manage to get a few well preserved  samples,   which  we  have sent  away.";:' ������-y'vyy::  "Then," he was asked, "you  think that the work involved in  getting out the diamonds would  make it costly to operate on a  paying balisT*'  SUIT FOR COMMISSION  In the County Court at Nicola  this week judge Swanson gave a  verdict for commission and costs  to Harold Greig, the local realty  broker in his suit against William  Schmock. M. L. Grimmett appeared for the plaintiff and H.  Colin Clarke for the defendant.  The suit was for the recovery  of five per cent commission on  the sale of the Brunswick poolroom in this city to Messrs Holler  arid Nitze, the present proprietors. The business had been listed with Harold Greig, for sale  some months prior to the actual  sale and the defendant thought  that inasmuch as the active negotiations were not made through  the broker personally he was not  entitled to the commission ori the  deal.  A SUBTLE CONTEMPORARY  We read in the Similkameen  Star, of 28th. June: "J. J. Armstrong of Keremeos was a visitor  between trains last Monday."  The editor of the Star is to be  congratulated upon the care with  whichhe watches the trains which  enter his city. Did the prominent citizen of Keremeos ' 'ride  the blind?" or was he "on the  rods?"   I think so," he said.  Mr. Camsell left this afternoon  for Vancouver, from which point  he will go into Steamboat to make  an investigation for the Dominion  government. He has sent his  party into the mountains with  pack trains by way of Princeton.  They would have gone in earlier,  even last fall, had not the snowfall in that section been too heavy  for it to be possible to make any  accurate survey of the mineral  deposits of the district.  [With the possibilities of profitable development of the platinum deposits in the Tulameen the  News will deal next week.]  sum Still  Being Shipped  Active Development of Property  ���y       Steadily Proceeding  That Robert Henderson is now  being justified for his optimism  injholding on to his gypsum properties on the north side of. the  city is evident to all who have  been paying any attention to the  work which is being done there.  Some time ago the News, exclusively, announced that a Vancouver firm had given an order  for a test shipment of 500 sacks  of the raw material. R. Henderson, started his(development immediately, and the results which  the manufacturing company have  been able to secure have been  such that they believe that they  are justified in requiring regular  shipments from this property.  The gypsum is now being  shipped at the rate of a carload  a day and there is every indication that the Vancouver company  will require even larger shipments  in the immediate future.  .-.     ; -O    .   ���    .

She woke from the operation quite strong and it is hoped  that she will entirely recover  within the next few weeks.          -o '  John McMillan returned to the  city last week after having made  an extended vacatiori trip  through the coast cities.

Contract Let  For Hospital  Fowler   &   Larson,  of   Merritt,  Will Erect Building.  On Thursday Mr. Charles Graham, president of the Nicola  Valley General Hospital Board,  signed the contract with Fowler  & Larson, of this city, for the  erection of the hospital building.  The contractors agree to complete the building and have it  ready for occupation by January  1st, 1912, the contract price being $19,247.00.  Other tenderers for the building, complete, were Flemming &  Pennington, Of this city, $19,-  985.00; William Cooper, $20,240.-  00; S. P. Woodward, Kamloops,  $20,711.00; J..H. Vickers, Vancouver, $22,250.00; G. T. Hariot  Construction Company, Vancouver, $23,466.  The following firms tendered  for the erection of the building  exclusive of the plumbing and  heating; S. Hyland, of this city,  $19,132; Binns & McBeth, Kamloops, $16,247.00; R. McKay,  Kamloops, $24,440.00.  The only tender for the heating and plumbing only was that  of  the  Kamloops   Heating and  Plumbing Company, for $7,540.  i  The news that the active con-;  struction of this hospital, which  is   the   of   the most imperative  necessities of the Nicola Valley,  will commence immediately will  be received with general pleasure by local and valley residents,;  The riierribersof the Nicola Valley  General Hospital Board are to be  congratulated With ihe effective  arid speedy   disposal   they have  have made of this part of their  work.    They are now in a position to devote themselves to the  task   of   collecting    the   funds  which   residents   have   been so  generously subscribing to during  the   past  nine   months.    While  there is of course a considerable  sum  on hand for the initial expenses  in   connection   with the  erection   of  this   building,   the  members of the board find that  they will have to commence another spirited  campaign to ensure that they will  have the requisite amount in the treasury  ^hen the^bn^tra^tors^have^com-  pleted the building.   The numerous deaths which have occurred  while patients have been trans-  portated over a hundred miles to  the nearest hospital, as has been  necessary in the past with particularly  serious illnesses,   have  served to emphasise the urgency  for establishing a hospital in the  Nicola Valley.   Now that there  is an excellent prospect that the  facilities for proper treatment of  sicknesses will be soon at hand  it behoves the public to support  the Board in every possible manner, morally and financially.  To the News one of the most  gratifying aspects of the award  of the contract is in the fact  that a local firm were successful  tenderers. Considerable credit  must be given to local contractors for being able to do work as  economically as the large firms  of Vancouver and Kamloops.  The order for the Duilding  material has has been placed with  the Merritt Lumber Yard.  The Nicola's  Opportunity  Vancouver Crying for   Cheaper  Coal for Factories  Vancouver is beginning to  realise the necessity for factories  if its reputation for rapid and  reasonable expansion is to be retained. The Tourist Association  is preparing for' a campaign of  advertising to call the attention  of the manufacturers to the opportunities which B, C, and  Vancouver in particular, offers  to them. But in the preparation  of propaganda they find that in  everythingsave the mdstessential  ���fuel���they are able to make as  glowing a proposal as any city in  the Dominion.  They can point to unsurpassed  transportation facilities, to good  and reasonably-priced labour, to  admirable strategic locations, but  when they endeavor to make their  arguments upon the economy of  coal or electricity as a fuel their  most enthusiastic advocates stutter a little.    The fact of the matter is, coal is not merely unreasonably, , but ridiculously,  costly in  the terminal city.    Really good  coal costs $7.50 per ton delivered  in the city, and $8.50 a ton two  miles from the bunkers on the  waterfront.     The  coal  in Vancouver  comes   from; Vancouver  Island,  where- collieries are'eri-  deavoririg to pay interest-upon  capitalization whiclTis fifty per  cent water.'* Hence* the men. in  1 Vancouver .'most interested in the,  I campaign; for cheaper fuel find  that,  they   are. appealing   to  a  Sphinx when they ask for more  reasonable rates for the manufacturer and householder.  XA.z. prominent   coal  dealer   in  Milwaukee, when  on a visit to  Vancouver recently,; stated that  he would think himself lucky if  he made twenty-five cents a ton  on the coal he handled ; he was  quite satified as long as he got  ten  cents   per ton.     Evidently  there is a difference in the points,  of view between the middleman  of Milwaukee.    With, less  than  one quarter of the middlemen to  divide the percentages in Vancouver than there are in Milwau-  kee.^the, Vancouver middleman  F. A. Reid, the well-known  local merchant, who was taken  ill last Thursday week, is now so  far recovered that he is able to  walk about.  Two important announcements  were made at the Dominion Day  dtnner in London, which was attended by 600 Canadians. ��� The  first was by the Duke of Connaught, who said that the Prince  of Wales would probably soon  visit Canada ; and the other by  Sir Wilfred Laurier, who stated  that Lord Strathcona and Mount  Royal, High Commissioner for  Canada, was about to resign.  wants (at the very least) five  times the amount of money for  handling a larger per capita coal  consumption  Now if the man in Wisconsin  is of the opinion that he can make  money on ten cents per ton on  all the coal he handles, surely the  coal merchants of Vancouver  should be satisfied with fifty cents  per ton. And that amount would  help the householders of Vancouver to live a little more cheaply  than they do today.  The coal produced in this valley is ideal for household purposes, and it could be used with advantage in the factories. There  should be no difficulty in making  arrangements with the railway  companies for handling large  shipments at rates that will make  it possible to build up a trade  with the coast that will enable  the local mines to be developed  on an.even larger scale than that  at present contemplated and at  the same time make it possible  to assist, the men who are trying  to secure factories for Vancouver  in their work.  It means prosperity for Vancouver, and it means greater  prosperity for Merritt and the  Nicola Valley.

It Will Pay You Well to Make Sure  There's been a lot of "guessing" about  rheumatism and rheumatic pains generally, but you can be dead sure that little  pain across your back came irom decreased kidney action.  The kidney's duty is to filter the blood  ���take out the impurities collected by  the returning blood stream���do it just  like absorbent cotton in a funnel filters  the impurities from polluted water.  When the kidneys are not working you  are bound for one of two courses���Diabetes and Bright's Disease or Rheumatism, Lumbago and Sciatica. The former course is usually fatal, and the latter  always painful, but you need not have  either, as they both can be easily prevented.  The very best prescription for all kidney troubles is Nyal's Stone Root Com-  Cound. It is no. "patent" medicine,  ut a scientific prescription composed  of Stoneroot, Buchu, Juniper and other  remedies of proved value. More than  that, it has been proved by thousands  who have had glad relief from its use.  There's nothing quite so miserable as  the dragging results of sick kidneys.  You are trifling with your own future  when you neglect so simple a precaution,  as a pleasant home treatment with Nyal'a  Stone Root Compound when results are  so certain.  It soothes bladder irritation, gives  you rest and comfort at night, and makes  life once more enjoyable.  The kidneys, liver and bladder are all  dependent upon one another, and Nyal's  Stone Root Compound is particularly  designed to help them all.

Mr. Steel at once  left for Nanaimo.  The news of Miss Hill's death  will be received with a shock by  the entire community, where she  has been so w^l^known and universally liked and, respected. It  is the irony of Fate that when  life looked brightesttoher, when  she had only just "completed the  purchase of her trousseau, and  she was eagerly looking forward  to her return to this city, when  she expected to" become a bride,  she should have been called by  her Maker to a higher sphere.

Reciprocity  "If I may venture a word of  friendly criticism on Canadian  politics, it is that you are sacrificing your industries and manufactures to your trade." Such was  the opinion of Mr. T. Guy Paget  a rising young Conservative politician in the Old Country, who  accompanied by his wife has been  a guest at the Empress during  the past week, and is now en  route heme full of golden ��� opinions of the golden west.  Mr. Guy Paget, though a young  man barely in the thirties, has  already won his spurs in British  politics as a clear thinker and effective speaker. An ardent Imperialist, Mr Paget is one who  will only speak from first hand  knowledge of the oversea dominions. Hence his present tour  in Canada from which he is returning to speak enthusiastically  of all he has seen and learned.  "One cannot realize thepoten-  tialities.of Canada, by reading  about it, and indeed I doubt  whether one is so keenly sensitive  of its boundless powers of development living in it, and constantly in touch with the wonders of  its natural beauties and resources,'" said Mr. Paget in the  course of a long chat with a Colonist representative. ' 'To the  observant stranger, a tour  through Canada is one long panorama of potential wealth and  industry. Therein, perhaps, lies  the one danger I have named;  that of neglecting your manufactures in the exploitation of your  natural resources. For history,  throughout the world proves that  the strength of a nation is in its  production, not in its trade. The  merely trading nation denudes  its resources and is the servant  of all, but the producing nation  is master of the world; That- is  at once the weakness of the English system of free trade, and  the strongest argument for a  protective tariff to stimulatehome  manufactures and native industries. Canada has unequalled  natural advantages to enable her  to become a great manufacturing  nation, At present, ��� however,  she is mainly consuming the  bounties of nature. And it':is  therefore, well to remember that  only the producer is self supporting. I look forward on my return to the homeland to do my  p.arLilLPjM^iMJo^??!^1^ caP"  land has only herself to thank,  by returning a liberal government  which has consistently refused  to meet the Dominions in any  tariff agreement. "  "I am, however, hopeful that  the Imperial Conference now sitting in London," added Mr.  Paget, "will find a means of advancing the idea of imperial preference, and that the wish of  Lord Rosebery will be realized  'that in this imperial Conference  are the germs from which to  form the most august parliament  the world has ever seen.' "���Colonist.  Begin  Tracklaying  Rumored   that   Grading   Westward Will Begin  A. H.

"What do you think of the  Canadian government's attitude  on reciprocity?" Mr. Paget was  asked.  . "With its usual 'honesty' the  Liberal party is accustomed to  display," said Mr. Paget satirically. ' 'It has. been attempting to  prej udice the anti-reciprocity  campaign by trying to make out  that the Conservative party at  home if in power, would prevent  Canada making a treaty with the  United States. This is, of course  utterly false and indeed absurd,  for as you know ho home government has power to interfere in  such a treaty, if it. wished to.  Still, you can take a Liberal  government to the country, but  you can't make it think. While  the Conservatives at home would  be the first to resent any interference with the' Dominion's  autonomy in such matters, the  party .regrets that our overseas  Dominion is being compelled to  make a treaty with a fore gn  powe-i. Such, we also feel  strongly, will add considerably  to the difficulties of "achieving  imperial prrfrrprcc throughout  the Empire.
