Array Vol. 2, No   19  MERRITT, B. C,' JUNE 23, 1911  Price 5 Cents  Coal Hill Mines  Incorporated  Inland Coal &   Coke Company  Takes Over Holdings.  The Inland Coal & Coke Company, Limited, capitalized at $1,-  500,000, with head offices in the  Pacific building, Vancouver, has  been formed for the purpose of  taking over the holdings of the  Goal Hill Syndicate, southwest  of the Nicola Valley Coal & Coke  Company's Middlesboro properties. Joseph Graham, general  manager of the Coal Hill Syndicate, and the general manager,  also, of the new corporation, returned from Vancouver during  the week and made the above  announcement to the News.  "The Inland Coal & Coke Company, " said Mr. Graham, "is a  close corporation. G.I. Wilson,  of Vancouver, who was one of  the principals in the Coal Hill  Syndicate, and who has been interested in other properties in  the Nicola Coalfields, is the  president of the new company ;  and W. L. Nicoal. who was also  interested in the Coal Hill Syndicate, is the vice-president. Both  of these gentlemen have been in-  dentified with financial undertakings and industries in Vancouver for over twenty years  past. They are fully alive to the  future of the Nicola coalfield  and intend to expend a great  deal of money in developing the  property."  "Will   the    present   working  .. force   be   increased ?"   he was  .__ asked,. _,y  "- "It'is the intentidh"of~the'com-  pany to double the present force  immediately. This is made possible by the development work  already completed. Over six  thousand tons of coal have been  shipped to date from the property and every shipment has  given the very best satisfaction.  Being in close touch with the  commercial pulse in Vancouver  the directors believe that they  are justified in opening up the  property on a scale commensur-  ate\ with its reputation. The  development of this property has  always been of interest to Merritt residents, and now that operations are to be   conducted on a  ===much=larger^scale=will=beof-much=  field. With about thirty men at  work the demand for the product  of the property has far exceeded  the supply. The explanation for  this is not far to seek, the coal is  cleaner and harder than usual;  in fact it is stated upon reliable  authority that every seam so far  uncovered is remarkably free  from foreign matter, and is  easily mined. The seams uncovered are of as great depth as  on the other properties in the  valley. ���-.-.-   (    '���"  The news that Joseph Graham  is to be retained as general manager of the corporation will be  received with pleasure by those  who have been acquainted with  his work in the past. For it is  in no small degree due to his  capacity for looking after details  closely as well as the larger operations, that the mine has been  developed, to its present condition.  The management has also  been particularly fortunate in  their choice of Andrew Bryden  as mine manager and general  superintendent. .For years he  was superintendent of the Dunsmuir Collieries, and he is regarded as one of; the best, mine managers iri the British Columbia  field.  Jekyll-Hyde  Verdict Given  TO CHANGE GAOL  As the result of the an inspection by W. Farrar Lawrence, the  government supervising architect, plans are now being prepared at Victoria to remodel the  rear of the present provincial jail  in this city.  The cells now used. will be  knocked out and the .,space "occu-  pied by them will bejturned^into  a living room, for- Constable  Vachon. In the rear of the present building a steel cage will'be  constructed, with three cells, all  connecting with one another.  Will Celebrate  Dominion Day  Plans  Great  greater interest in the future."  At present the coal has to be  hauled to the railway a short  distance in order to load it on  cars, and with a view to ascertaining what the company intended to do in this matter Mr.  Graham was asked whether or  not there would be any more  direct connection in the future.  "Plans are now being prepared," he answered, "to connect  direct with the railway, and the  preparation is being hurried as  rapidly'as possible. When these  plans are completed the installation of the improved facilities  will be rushed. We have so  many insistent demands for the  ': product from the mine that it is  imperative that we rush work as  fast as vve possibly can."  "Any change in the personnel  of the management?" he was  asked.  "No," he answered. "Andrew  Bryden  remains as  mine manager and general superintendent,  ���while I am to be general manager. "  The foregoing interview will  be read with keen interest by  residents of this city and  throughout the valley. For quite  a while everyone has been watching the development of this property, as one of the best coal  mining propositions in the Nicola  Being   Made   for  Holiday July 1st.  At a mass meeting in Menzies'  hrll last Wednesday eveningyat  which Mayor Eastwood presided,  it was decided that Dominion  Day must be celebrated here in  a=proper=mannerrwitlr=sports=iff  the day and a dance in the evening. The following invitation  has been extended to all to participate in the celebration:  "To the citizens of Merritt,  Middlesboro, Collettville, Aspen  f Grove, Quilchena, Coutlee, Lower  Nicola, Canford, Dot, Spence's  Bridge, Nicola, Tulameen, Otter  Valley and residents in and  around the valley an invitation  to participate in the celebration  of Dominion Day in the City of  Merritt is cordially extended."  Commencing, as early as nine  o'clock in the morning children's  games and races will be held.  There will be running races for  adults as well and throughout  the day horse racing.- In the  afternoon it is proposed to hold  a baseball game between Merritt and Ashcroft, for a cup.  In the evening at Menzies' hall  there will be a dance.  The finance committee started  work this afternoon and already  at least five hundred dollars for  prizes are assured. It is proposed to offer a special prize for  members of the B. C. Horse in  militarv races. -.     ���       :  One feature in which everybody  in the valley will bn particularly  interested is the fact that, the  Ladies' Auxiliary of the Nicola  Valley General Hospital  will have charge of the refreshments to be provided during the  day, the funds derived therefrom  to be devoted to the. general  building fund of the hospital.  The City   Magistrate  Dismisses  Charge of Liquor Selling.  The case of Sam Johnson, a  negro charged with having supplied gin to Johnny Loolapa, who  is alleged to have so severely cut  up an Indian by the name of  Paul, that the latter is at death's  door, was heard before Magistrate Morgan on Wednesday  morning, and resulted iri the  acquittal of the defendant.  Johnson, represented by H.  Colin Clark, entered a plea of  "not guilty." Mr. Grimmett  conducted the prosecution.  Johnny Loolapa testified : lam  an Indian and I live at the  Springs, this side of Shulus  Indian Reserve.  By Mr. Grimmett: Where were  you on Saturday night ?���Here  in town.  What time ?���About ten o'clock  Saturday night.  Did you get anything when you  were in town on Saturday night?  -Yes.  What did you get ?���A bottle  of gin. y  Who gave it to you ?���Some  man in here.; black man.  Do you know this man ?���No,  I saw him before.  Would you know him now ?---  Yes, I know him. (Identified  accused.)  About what time did he give  you gin ?���About ten o'clock.     ���;  Where was this ?���This side of  Sid's house.  , .How. much.1 gin in. the bottle  when you/gof it ?---Bottle was  open.'  ;   Who   opened   it ?���Maybe   he  opened it.  How much did you pay for it ?  ���He tell me " I want $2.00." I  say I got $1.75, and he says  "That is alright." I give him  $1-75...   Was this before you got the  gin ?���It was before- That is all  I know-  What did you do after you got  the gin ?���I go home.  Cross - examination by Mr,  Clarke :  How old are   you ?���I   don't  know.  Where were you on Saturday  did not recall having sold any  liquor in bottles to any negroes  onSaturday evening and the other  was uncertain.  Through Mr. Coutlee Mr. Clarke  asked Johnny Loolapa whether  he had been promised any immunity if he gave evidence ?���  Johnny replied that he had not.  The Crown rested the case  there. Mr. Clarke argued that  he should not be compelled to  call for evidenco in defence.  This Mr. Grimmett naturally opposed. Magistrate Morgan had  the application for dismissal before him. Four times he asked  counsel if he could consult with  them in private and arrive at  some agreement. He had the  application of Mr. Clarke before  him for dismissal. He had the  application of Mr. Grimmett for  further evidence, that of the defence, or a conviction.  i The magistrate endeavoured to  get out of the difficulty, by putting it up to the council. He  wanted to know if a verdict of  "guilty and accused let off with  suspended sentence" would be  satisfactory. Mr. Clarke wanted  a definite decision on his application. Finally to get out of his  difficulty the magistrate dismissed the case.   It was laughable.  Serio s Affray  At Shulus  mgHrbefore"ten o'cloclT?~Here  in town.  Have any drink ?���No.  Did you try to get any 1���Yes.  I see this fellow and he say "I  give you one bottle gin." That  all I know.  Did you get any other drink ?  -No.  Have you been arrested ?   Then followed an argument as  to whether or not witness was in  custody, enlivened by a passage  at arms between counsel as to the  reliability of witness's testimony.  Did you see many black men  about ?���I see that fellow.  Do you know the difference between one blackman and another?  ���I don't understand.  Can you tell me the difference  between two black men?���Yes.  I know this is the man who gave  me the bottle.  Counsel then put the following  question, which neither witness  alone, nor with the aid of an interpreter, was able to understand.  " If you told about a man giving  you drink he would not give you  any more drink ? You want to  get drink ? And you won't get  any more whisky from him ?  Alex Coutlee was sent for to  interpret the questions to witness, and in the meantime the  examination of two bartenders  from the" Coldwater Hotel was  proceeded  with.    One of   thorn  Pooley Ranch  Subdivision  McVittie   to   Divide Tamerton  {   Ranch Into Small Holdings  I Archibald W. McVittie, the  well known civil .ehgineer.and  feuryeyqr,.willjshortly commence  the work of subdividing the famous Tamerton Ranch, about a  mile from Nicola, into small  homesteads. The Ranch is to be  divided into ten and twenty-acre  farms and these will be put upon  the market by July 1st.  The   Tamerton    Ranch,    for  which Mr. McVittie is said to have  paid one hundred and twenty five  thousand    dolllars,     comprises  twenty three hundred acres of  flat bench and bottom landy about  evenly divided.   The bottom land  is well watered and there should  be no difficulty in carrying out  any   irrigation   work upon the  small homesteads.  =Mr.=McVittie.=being=fa��miliar  with this property, will undertake  the task of subdividing it personally, so as to plat the holdings in  such a manner as to ensure the  best returns for the prospective  purchasers.  The Tamerton ranch was the  property of the late William  Pooley, and while he lived was  famous throughout the interior  for the quality of its products.  Since William Pooley's death  Mrs. Pooley has had charge of  the ranch.  Mr. McVittie is making arrangements for the settlement of  two hundred families on the ranch  site. The great majority of the  prospective settlers are people  with money who will be an undoubted acquisition to the valiey.  Indian Paul Dangerously Wounded in Reported Orgy  On Sunday morning last, in response to a telephone message  from H. S. Cleasby, Constable  Vachon rode down to the Springs,  just, this side of the main village  of the Schulus Indian Reserve.  He arrested Johnny Loolapa, on  a charge of cutting Indian Paul,  a butcher employed by the Nicola  Valley Meat Market, with a knife  so badly that it was feared that  Paul might die.  Briefly the facts are alleged to  be as follows: Johnny Loolapa  came into this city on Saturday  evening about ten o'clock and in  some manner procured a bottle  of gin. Returning to his home  he and Paul began a celebration.  It is alleged that there was an  altercation, in the course of which  Loolapa drew a knife and hacked  Paul across the head, severing an  artery; across the arm, just below  the shoulder, laying open the arm  across the muscles to the bone ;  and also stabbed him several  times in the back.  Paul crawled to his home, and  when found next day his blankets  were soaked in blood, more blood  being scattered in pools on the  floor, and his clothes also saturated. He must have lost over a  quart of blood, but despite everything he was still alive, and of  course very feeble. Dr. Tutill,  the official Indian surgeon, was  immediately summoned to him  and stitched up the wounds as  well as possible/  Loolapa was brought up before  Magistrate Morgan en a preliminary hearing onMonday morning,  and remanded for eight days, in  order to find out if Paul would  I live.   Chief Constable Burr was  telegraphed for,  but could not  come immediately, being detained  by a similar affray at Lytton. He  arrived on Wednesday even ing.  Just before noon   today   the  News learned that there had been  a preliminary hearing and that  Loolapa had been committed to  Kamloops to await his trial.   It  is impossible to know what took  place, .as the public and Press  werejiot.notifiedun.any=way.=It=  is impossible to state whether or  not the proceedings in the court  itself were at all regular;  but,  judging by the happy-go-lucky  system which has so far obtained  here, we believe that anything  might have happened.  Johnny Loolapa is understood  vo be a young Indian, barely more  than a youth; reports as to his  past conduct are conflicting.  Paul, on the other hand, appears to have been generally  popular with those whom he came  and quite a good deal of sympathy  has been extended to him in his  misfortune. Unless blood poison  sets in there is a good chance of  him recovering soon.  KAMLOOPS CAMP  The publication of the prize  list of the exhibition occupies so  much space this week that it has  been impossible to give the account of the Kamloops encampment. Next week, however, we  shall publish a complete account  of the life and incidents of the  camp.  LOCAL AND DISTRICT  Miss Erskine, of  Nicola,   was  in the city during the week.  R. G. S.

J.  Hill, president of the Great  Northern railway. Mr. Hill is  using his influence at Washington upon senators of the Democratic party and upon senators of  the Republican party; he is using  it judiciously and the rumor is  that he is using it very effectively. He is also using his influence upcn the people of the  northwestern states of the union,  and in these states he is a power.  He is regarded in these states as  the friend of the farmer.and the  friend of the mauufacturer. He  realizes that the country cannot  prosper unless both these classes  prosper. And Mr. Hill's life-  work has been to make the  country through which his great  railway enterprises pass rich and  populous. He has done so much  for the northwestern states that  the people believe in him. When  he tells them, therefore, that  reciprocity will be of benefit to  them; it is impossible that his  counsel should not carry weight  with them; it is impossible that  with many of them it should not  override any views they may  have formed of their own that  may be adverse to the measure.  But Mr~. James JTHill cannot  be regarded as a philanthropist  pure and simple. His desire for  the progress and prosperity of  the northwestern states has its  origin in his desire for the prosperity of his railway. It is a  personal matter with him first.  The public interest is a secondary  consideration.  No one will doubt for one  moment that reciprocity such as  is proposed will be of benefit to  Mr. Hill's railway. It will throw  an immense amount of new business into his hands. He has been  preparing for that access of business for many years under the  impression that some day the two  countries would be united, if not  politically, at least commercially.  He has thrown out from the Great  Northern system which traverses  the bordering states of the Union  from St. Paul to Seattle, sixteen  feeders, all of which reach and  some of which cross the International boundary line. Each of  these feeders is strategically  situated in regard to the transportation of the Canadian harvest.  If reciprocity is not ratified and  does not become law all thi3 railway building from the main line  to the boundary will have been,  if not useless, at least by no  means of the use intended. It  will riot carry the Canadian harvest to Migneapolis and the great  A  DYING   CAUSE  The Daily News of Wednesday  has the following editorial, which  is worthy of repeating, showing  as it does the hopelessness of the  Liberal cause in British Columbia.  The Ottawa Journal, one of the  most reliable papers in Canada*  recently sent out queries to correspondents in all the "provinces  of Canada on both sides of politics, asking for a statement as to  what would be the result in their  respective parts of the Dominion  were a Dominion general election  brought on at once. Here are the  answers received from British  Columbia.  (By a Liberal Correspondent)  Victoria, B. C, June 3.���It is  a difficult matter to estimate the  chances of the Liberal party in  British Columbia at the next  election. As a matter of fact  there is very little of a Liberal  party here today, and in response  to the request of the Journal  would suggest that "Dick" McBride could give as much information as is required.  (By a Conservative Correspondent.)  Victoria, B. C, June 3.���The  Conservative party holds the key  of the situation in British Columbia. Premier McBride has seen  to that. Since he became leader  of the Conservatives in the province, the opposition to him has  gradually been wiped out until  there is no such thing as an organized Liberal party. It is true  that the government has two  supporters in the Federal house,  but since 1908 this influence has  declined, and today reciprocity  has put them in such a position  that they have absolutely no hope  of being re-elected. It is believed  that^witlrlfedistribution^^Bfitish'  Columbia will be given fifteen  seats. If that is so the Liberals  have only the slightest chance of  gaining one of these seats. But  there is little hope that they will  do even that. In the Yukon,  Congdon will be defeated. He  was elected last time as the result of a four-cornered contest,  but he cannot win in a straight  election.  These two replies, it is quite  safe to say, pretty well represent  the feeling in British Columbia.  Both show the absolute hopelessness of the Liberal cause so far  as this province is concerned. ���  Rossland Miner.  Oscar Wilde, we believe it was,  said that "woman is a Sphinx,  without the riddle." "Life"  says that "all women are difficult  until they are conquered ; then  they're all alike." It is well  known that women can stand  more real pain than men ; and yet  there is nothing which delights  more in inflicting the keenest  pain man can feel than woman.  Hence we conclude that Woman  is a charming collection of contradictions. And Mere Man is  that which is complementary to  Woman.  Recently a   bright  American  weekly dwelt upon the   dissatis  faction which will be inevitable  with the achievement of the Socialistic regime. The writer depicts sociologists turning "to the  lower animals and asking the cow  ���for example��� why is it content  with clover, and alfalfa, when  chickens are given assorted grain  horses are given sugar, and dogs  sleep in a well prepared bed.  The skit purports to be satirical  ���but there are coldly analytical  philosophers who see therein a  clever parallel to conditions in  modern society. After all happiness is only a state of mind.  The Victoria Colonist is most  undignified in haste. The issue  of Thursday last week bore the  date "June 22nd, 1911."  BROTHERLY LOVE  Early in the week before last  an Indian lass, bearing the epu-  honious title of Margaret,   came  into the government agent's office  at Nicola, with much gore bespattered over her person and a tale  of woe upon her lips.    It appeared that her brother, in a burst'bf  indignant affection,   had endeavoured to impress upon her   the  natural superiority of the   male  sex.    A constable was promptly  despatched to the vicinity ot Quilchena, where the   incident   had  occured, and the erring  brother  by name Neila,  was -haled   into  court.    There he pleaded that he  had had but one drink of whiskey  and had lost his head. The court  administered justice,   to the. approval of all concerned.  Though  someone did claim that anyone  that got drunk on one drink of  whisky     should     get   fourteen  years.     But mabe  he. drank a  bottle, judging from the capacity  of certain  individuals we  have  seen,   they, can  take enough.in  one full gulp to make two ordinary men see  reptiles  of various  and   curious hues.

CORONATION   CONCERT  To celebrate the Coronation of King George V. a concert was  given on Monday evening last under the auspices of St. Michaels Church, that evening being chosen to prevent clashing with  any celebrations to take place on the Coronation Day. Menzies  Hall was quite crowded by an appreciative audience, and the  affair was decidedly a great success, the Rev. T. Walker having  unearthed qnite a talented company of performers. The company opened the concert by singingthe National Anthem. The  songs and recitations of the school children were loudly applauded, and were not the least attractive items on a long and  varied programme, which follows: ���  PART I.  Opening Chorus   .National Anthem  Pianoforte Solo Miss C. Hudson  Song 'My Ain Folk' Miss Cousins  Songs and Recitations By the school children  Song  Farmer Giles Mr. II.

Hughes  Mrs. Dr. Tutill was the able accompanist.  At the'close of the concert, on thc suggestion of the young  people, an impromptu dance was indulged in till early morning  and was greatly enjoyed by all who stayed. Thanks are due  to the ladies and gentlemen who took part and to Mr. Walker  for bringing them out, for a most enjoyable evening. The  concert would serve a double purpose, for quite a few dollars  would be netted towards the Parish Hall fund.  A.F.&A.M.
