Banks  and Settlers  Victoria Man Suggests Feasible  Scheme  In view of the importance  which the question of government  ' advances to settlers has assumed,  the following interview accorded  the News by F. H. Worlock, of  Victoria, when in this city during  the week,is of particular interest,  offering, as it does, a solution of  the difficulty which has arisen in  ; connection with the proposals i.n-  - troduced into the legislature last  session by Alex Lucas, M. P. P.,  ��� namely, the fact that for some  ;years to come the funds.of the  government will largely, of necessity, be. devoted to the construction of public works for the  further development of means of  transportation throughout the  province.  " I was talking, to your member  in Victoria recently," aaid Mr.  ��� Worlock to the the News, "about  the proposal which he has made  in regard to government aid to  settlers, by means of monetary  advances at fair rates of interest.  At first glance one of the greatest  obstacles to the adoption of his  - proposals would appear to lay in  the fact that the, development of  transportation facilities throughout the province will tax the resources of the government rather  heavily for some years yet to  come. It appears to me, and I  believe that the public will readily  appreciate it, that while so much'  money is needed for improving,  lines of communication ..between  ^;Ke various cities .and" towns! iii,  the interior, it wpuld be an unwise policy for the government  to tie up its present surplus funds  on long terms in advances to  settlers."  "I was discussing this phase  of the situation with your member, and it has since.occurred to  me that if the Land Mortgage  Bank system, which was first introduced into India some forty-  two years ago, were to be introduced into British Columbia, we  would have the solution of the  difficulty immediately."  "What is the system in connection with Land Mortgage  Banks?" the News representa-  ih^irelir^Hd^MfrWorloclf  SHEEP IN THE'NICOLE VALLEY  N. V. C. & C. Co.  Entertain  The photograph shown above, taken expressly for the Njcola Valley News by Walter Montgomery, was made at the James  Pooley ranch near Nicola, There are 650 sheep in the herd. The," photo clearly shows the excellent condition of the sheep after a  rather severe winter. In addition to the sheep this 1920 acres of land supports 630 head of cattle. A considerable area of the ranch  is devoted to crops,, such as hay and grain. W. E, Scott, deputy-minister of agriculture bases his glowing prophecy of the future of  this valley on such farms as this. ���''    ' , '        ; '  ^uve  proceeded to explain:  "The establishment of Land  Mortgage Banks was originally  undertaken in the district around  Darjceling, above Simla, where  the tea-growers���mostly Scotchr  men���required,  in   commencing  their plantations, to secure funds  to enable them to construct the  necessary irrigation   works for  supplying water to their plants.  These banks loaned money to the  tea-growers at fair interest rates,  taking in return a mortgage on  the property of  the borrower.  The management of the.banks  was under careful supervision by  the authorities.   By this system,  many men, otherwise financially  incapable of conducting a plantation,  were able to  secure  the  necessary funds; and by means  of the loans from these banks  were finally able to become independent.     If  the   government  could be induced to grant a charter to such a bank in British  Columbia, and arrange for careful inspection of its accounts, as  a  protection   against   usurious  rates of interest, I believe that  -we would find the readiest solution for the settlement of the  difficulty in this province."  We pointed out that pre-emptions reverting to the government  when the pre-emptors fail to  complete their assessment would  prove an   obstacle to advances  (from"capitalists. ��� '  "That is   a   difficulty   which  could   be   readily' adjusted, by  legislation, by which pre-emptions  taken up under loans from a land  mortgage bank would revert to  the mortgagee,' 'saidMr. Worlock,  '' Another way in which the bank  could be protected, of course, is  in the administration of the loans  made to   the   pre-emptor.     To  illustrate: Suppose that a pre-  emptor should take up a quarter  section of fair valley and side-hill  land.    He wishes to borrow two  thousand dollars   to   make improvements.    Now it is to the interest of .the bank to see that the  money^advaiTced^s expendecTin"  the construction of such works  as will improve the property, and  for nothing else. The bank could  requre that  every'purchase of  machinery be supervised by one  of its officers ;; also that its officers should be, satisfied, that full  value is given in product for all  labour" which may have to   be  hired by the pre-emptor.    Every  improvement   which  has to be  paid for out of the loan money  must be paid for in such a manner  that the banks would know that  they are paying for value received  and nothing else.     It; could be  known by all that a pre-emptor  borrowing money from a mortgage bank  may not dispose of  property without the consent of  the mortgagee until the original  loan has been disposed of. Strict  government   supervision   would  ensure that the bank would not  become arbitrary and autocratic.  As to the rate of interest on loans,  I believe that about seven or eight  per cent would be a fair thing."  W. E. Scott, deputy minister of  agriculture, stated; when in the  valley, lha't he believed it highly  probable   that   the  .commission  asked for by Alex Lucas would  be appointed.    When it is appointed the commissioners would  find Mr. Worlock ready to give  any information on the operation  of land mortgage banks.  " ~ "-*    LAW COURTS "  Immediately after the conclusion of the mining test cases in  the local courts last Friday morning, H. ColinSClarke made ,appli-  cation to Dr. Tutill, J.P., to quash  the conviction registered against  F. Mulganes, J. Rascovich, M.  Rascovich, John Botch and C.  Stine without trial of their cases,  or even without being given an  opportunity to plead. Dr. Tutill  reserved decision on the application, pending consultation with  counsel. Finally he announced  that the convictions would be  quashed and the fines and costs  remitted. This has been done  and the "convictions" pass into  History as a notable-incident of  maladministration of justice. The  total amount remitted was $70.25.  -\ - ���-  Stine  Last Tuesday (afternoon the  case of A. Mulganes vs. J. Stel-  moch was heard before Messrs.  Matthews and Moore, J.'s P.  H. Colin Clarke appeared for the  defence, and secured the dismissal of the charge against his  client. M. L. Grimmett appeared  for the Crown. As two informations in connection with the same  circumstances had been laid  against the defendant and  promptly disposed of, on behalf  of his client, Mr. Clarke pleaded  "autrefois a qui," which is in  effect an argument that a man  may not be charged again for an  offence arising out the same set  of circumstances. The bench  heard the pro and con of this and  ordered the trial to proceed.  The prosecutor testified that  defendant threatened to shoot  him when he asked for a settlement of a $3 debt. Cross-examined by Mr. Clarke, he admitted  he had been drinking heavily on  the day in question, but denied  that there was a woman in the  -case.-'-.- .'-��� ���  Frank Mulgunes called, corroborated the statements of his  brother Andrew, but on cross-  examination by Mr. Clark was  forced to admit that he had been  drinking: Charles Stine also  corroborated the prosecutor's  evidence in defence. Mr. Murray  said he thought it was necessary  and Mrs. Shute, "the woman in  the case," was called. Sworn,  she testified that thrice upon the  day in question Mulgunes had  threatened her and Stelmoch.  Mulgunes was drunk, as were  witnesses called in support of  his case. * .���������������  Mulganes had threatened to  kill Stelmoch. When Mulgunes  tried to come up stairs to attack  Stelmoch the latter had obtained  a revolver from his trunk and  warned him off.  Stelmoch testified that he came  iiuiuTvvuitt-ao���iOui���O-CIOCiv���aim  found men drinking in the house.  He had gone up town on business and when he came back  Mulgunes was drunk and threar-  ened himself and wife. He had  then obtained a revolver to defend himself.  John Malloch testified he had  heard words passed in anger between Stelmoch and' Mulgunes,  After brief deliberation Mr.  Matthews announced that] the  decision of the. bench was to  dismisss the case.  In the Country Court, at Nicola Last Wednesday, the case of  Jean B, Dorais, vs, George Jamie-  son was heard before Swanson,  J. M. L. Grimmett appeared for  plaintiff and H. Colin Clarke for  defence. This was an action for  eighteen dollars, being balance  due to plaintiff on a building contract. Defendant admitted debt  of fifteen dollars which had already been paid in court, leaving  three dollars in dispute. Plaintiff  claimed that defendant had contracted to haul lumber, which defence denied.' Judgment was  given in favour of defendant.  iA^V-  NEWTfoWNlift MAP  A map is now being compiled  by Harold Greig, real estate and  financial broker, which will be  the most up-to-date and largest  map and most correct plan of the  Merritt Townsite ever issued. It  will contain all District Lot and  map numbers and show plainly  the city limits in all subdivisions  old and new. This map will when  finished be very valuable to all  business men and investors.  On Tuesday night at Nicola,  before Messrs Matthews and  Murray, J's. P., the case of C.  Tuellin, of Douglas Lake, vs  William Manion, of Otter Valley.  Manion was charged with having  stolen saddle, blanket-and -bridle  from Tuellin. Mr. Grimmett appeared on behalf of Manion and  secured a dismissal of the charge.  REAL ESTATE SALES  .  Harold Greig reports the following sales:���E. A.

THE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday,  April 28, 1911  Bank of Montreal  Gets Account  City   Council    Consider   Applications  From Two Banks  The city council met in the  court house last Monday evening  shortly rafter eight o'clock. At  the opening mayor Eastwood announced that as this had not yet  been made a municipal school  district, but is still a rural district and under the supervision  of the education department at  Victoria, there will b^ no work  for the education committee he  appointed to do. It was decided  to drop it for the present.  Robert Barclay applied for  a  license to sell liquor by wholesale.  As this is a matter which comes  within the jurisidiction of the license commission and that commission is not yet appointed it  was decided to refer the application to them.  ��� Harold Greig wrote asking that  the council charge transient real-*  ty  vendors a license for'doing  business in this city.   This matter  will be dealt with when the finance committee takes up license  fees questions.  The letters containing applications for the.city clerkship were  then opened and it was found  that H. Priest, G. M. ��� Brash, of  Nicola, and ' F. A. 'Culbard, of  Lower Nicola, were the three  candidates. ,H. Priest was ap-  ' pointed at a salary of sixty dollars per month. In addition to'  being city ��� clerk, assessor and  collector, he was appointed temporary treasurer.  G. Murray of Nicola, wrote offering to give Lot 181, N. E. 1-4  of Sec. 22, in the vicinity of  Bench View," to the city for a  park; providing that' when waterworks are' put in the reservoir  will be placed at a high level, so  as to give owners of property on  the bench an opportunity of irrigating their land: This would  serve a twofold purpose. Prov-  de water for householders there  and at the same time be a demonstration of what may be done  by irrigation on the benches.  The B. C. Gazette sent in a  bill for $2.50 for advertising the  election.  The finance committee reported  that they had interviewed the  bank managers in regard to rates  on loans and overdrafts and had  written offers from the banks in  this connection.  The Bank of Toronto offered to  give the city loans and overdrafts  for five per cent per annum. They,  also offered to pay three per cent  on ordinary credits; but amounts  to the credit of the city which  were borrowed from the bank  would not bear interest. All  monies paid into the bank by the  city would, however, bear interest.  The Bank of Montreal offered  to give the city overdrafts and  loans for six per cent per annum.  They were prepared to pay three  per cent on fixed deposits, such  as sinking fund accounts. This  bank also mentioned the fiscal  agency in its letter.  Aid. Jackson said that he  thought that the Bank of Montreal, being the pioneer bank of  the district,' should be given the  city's account.  Aid, Munro stated that there  was a difference of one per cent  in favour of the Bank of Toronto,,  but that the city would have the  benefit of the Bank of Montreal's  experience in floating debenture  issues.  Aid. Boyd said that the council  had a definite business proposition  to consider. The Bank of Toronto  offered loans for five per cent and  the Bank of Montreal offered  loans for six per cent. There was  one per cent difference. Though  the Bank of Montreal was a pioneer bank, the council had to look  after the ratepayers' interests,  and one per cent was quite a large  item in a year's business.  Aid. McMillan said that both  banks were good. The Bank of  Toronto had offered more favorable terms by one per cent.    In  the interests of the city that offer  should be accepted.  Aid. Menzies stated that there  was a difference in favor of the  Bank of Toronto of one per centr  Against that the city would have  the benefit of the Bank of Montreal's connection in issuing debentures. Personally he favored  the Bank of Montreal, but they  were there to look after the city's  interests.  Aid. Reid stated that he did  not think it wise, in sense, for a  bank to offer such a low rate in  the west. The Bank of Montreal's connections would be invaluable in a debenture issue.  Aid. Boyd, seconded by Aid.  McMillan, moved that the matter  be laid over for a week, to give  an opportunity to consider it  thoroughly.  Aid. Reid, seconded Aid. Menzies and Jackson, moved that the  account be given to the Bank of  Montreal.  As an amendment to the amendment Aid. McMillan moved that  the Bank of Toronto be given the  account. c  On the vote the account went  to the Bank of Montreal. Those  who voted for it were Aid. Menzies, Reid, Munro and Jackson ;  against, Aid. Boyd and McMillan.  After the vote had been recorded, City Solicitor Grimmett -informed the mayor that. he could  have voted had he wished to do so.  The finance committee were  instructed to look into licenses  and special taxes. On the motion  of Aid. Jackson, the city "clerk  was instructed to write to Supt.  Hussey and request permission  to use the courthouse for council  meetings until such time as the  council have permanent quarters  of their own.  The council then adjourned, to  meet next Tuesday night at half-  past eight. l  SPOKEN ADVERTISEMENTS  For some time past there has  been an outcry in Paris against  the enormous number of adver  tisements which are distributed  by hand on the boulevards and in  the central streets; of the city.  These advertisements are more  popular with French advertisers  than advertisements on hoardings  or in the newspapers, and, of  course, they are inexpensive.  The papers are of all sizes, shapes  and colors, and, naturally, ninety  per cent bf them are thrown on  the pavement when they have  been glanced at, and sometimes  without that formality. For this  reason the municipal council has  decided to suppress them altogether, or at all events to tax  them so heavily that their distribution will be a luxury, and will,  therefore, become less general.  But the Paris tradesmen who  wants to advertise is not to be  outdone, and a new terror has  been put upon the boulevards. It  is a harrassing experience to turn  one's shoulder and a hoarse voice  murmuring: "Just one word; it  is most important."  You start. You see a dingy  person smiling ingratiatingly, and  he goes on: " For elevenpence, at  the end of the Passage Ygrec,  you can get an excellent luncheon.  As much bread as you like, wine,  beer or milk, a hors d'oeuvre, a  dish of meat, a vegetable and a  desert." The communication is  not very startling, but the manner  of it is not at all good for the  nerves.  You go another hundred yards  down the boulevard. A lady  dressed in dingy black comes up  to you and whispers: " Your wife  has deceived you ! "  You start���"I beg your pardon ? "  '' Or she may deceive you. If  you want to know everything or  anything, go and consult Madame  X., No. 19, So-and-so street. She  will tell your fortune with coffee  grounds or by the stars. Her  fees are moderate, and she is  never wrong."  The spoken advertisement is a  clever idea, but it is sincerely to  be hoped-that'the" police will put  a stop to it before long.    People  who live near, or who frequent  the boulevards would certainly  prefer the bits of coloured paper.  102nd REGT   OBJECTS  There is a warm feeling in regimental circks in Nelson over the  latest district order promulagted  which directs that.the 102nd regiment, R. M. R., is to go into  twelve days camp at Kamloops  on June 5 along with 104th Regiment, A. B. C. and D squadrons  of the British Columbia Light  Horse, the 18th Field Ambulance  and the independent company of  infantry at Armstrong. The  point of objection taken is that  the 102 regiment being a city  corps, and all its members engaged in occupations that they can  not leave, certainly not on a  wholesale scale, the enforcement  of the order either means disorganization of business or the disorganization of the regiment.  The last ruling has just been  made in connection with the present situation. Col. Wadmore,  district officer commanding, issued a circular announcing the  proposals for the Kamloops camp.  Lieut.��� Col. W. H. P. Holmes  of Kaslo,. commanding the regiment, immediately drew the attention of the district officer commanding to the recognized status  of the 102 regiment as a city .corps.  The matter was referred to the  department which made its third  successive ruling, rating the regiment as a rural corps and therefore not exempted from camp  duty.  THE NAVAL CONTINGENT  It has been decided to send a  naval contingent to the coronation of King George. The contingent will consist of thirty five  petty officers and cadets and  three officers. With the exception of one officer and two petty  officers, all the members of the  contingent will be chosen from  the Canadian recruits who are  being trained on   the   Canadian  training ships in the Atlantic and  Pacific waters. The contingent  will sail on one of the regular  passenger lines about the same  time as the military  contingent.  A FISH STORY  An angler caught a huge fish  in an Irish river, and after the  first run could not get a move on  him. So he tied the line to a tree  on the river bank and hurried  home for help. On his return  what was his astonishment to  find the tree torn from -its roots  and towed by the pike to the other  side ! Then, in its flurry, the fish  caused the tree to fall upon, and  so he met his doom. The weight  of the pike is not stated, but the  tree weighed several tons.  Imperfect Kidney Action  Causes Rheumatism  Rheumatism with its kindred ailments  ����\.umbago, Wry Neck, Neuralgia, etc.,  usually results from lodgments of uric  acid in the joints and muscles. ���  Now, the chief function of the kidneys  is to properly filter this poison from the  blood. /  Only when they tail to do this is  Rheumatism probable.  Kidney weakness starts in various  ways. A sudden chill, after perspiring  freely, sometimes settles' in the kidneys  ���or an unusual strain may cause it.  Poisons which should be filtered out  of the system are pumped back into the'  blood, causing Uric Acid, the real cause  of Rheumatism, Lumbago, Wry Neck,  Neuralgia, etc.  In the early stages Nyal's Stone Root  Compound' will stop it.  Will start your kidneys working properly so that the Uric Acid is reabsorbed  and eliminated.  Away goes your Rheumatism with it.  Perhaps these early warning twinges  have passed unheeded, and your Rheumatism has become deep seated. .  Muscles all snarled up in knots as it  ���were.  Then you'll need . Nyal's Rheumatic  Cure. t.  Ask your own druggist about these  remedies.  His opinion is worth while.  Sold and' Guaranteed by  Gemmill & Rankin,    -   Merritt.

CITY   BANKING  A calm and careful consideration of the propositions submitted  to the city council last Monday  evening by the managers of the  two banks doing business in Merritt has served to confirm our first  impression that the action of the  council, in appointing the Bank  of Montreal city bankers, in view  of the offer made by the management of the Bank of Toronto, was  rather hasty.  The appointment of a city  banker is'a matter which demands  the most careful consideration by  the aldermen. It is their first  duty to ascertain whether or not  any arrangement they may make  with any particular financial institution will be to best interests  of the ratepayers of the community. If there can be any  economy effected by delaying  action, the council should delay  action to effect that economy and  gain that advantage for their  constituents. It must be constantly borne in mind that stability in finance is an asset of  utmost importance to the city  when considering the municipal  relation to the world without the  confines of the corporation.  Let us examine the two proposals made to the council.  The Bank of Montreal offers to  advance money at six per cent.  It is prepared to pay three per  cent on deposits " such as sinking  fund, etc." (The reference to  the appointment of fiscal agents  may be ignored in considering  the offers made to the council, as  it had no relation to business  with which the finance committee  were requested to deal at the  previous session.)  The Bank of Toronto offers to  advance money for five per cent.  It is prepared to pay three per  c-jnt on daily balances, with the  exception of such amounts at the  .credit of the city which are apart  of a loan to the city for which"  the city is paying interest.  When a city has given a  certain bank its account  the transaction is such  that it must be a permanent  arrangement. It is practically  impossible for a city, in its relations with any bank, to close a  fiscal year without owing money.  A city's business is nearly always  conducted with an overdraft.  In considering the two offers  let us work on a twelve month  period.  The city will have to borrow  five thousand dollars immediately. For this accommodation  to the bank of Montreal it will  have to pay six per cent., which  is three hundred dollars per  annum. Under the offer of the  Bank of Toronto it would pay  $250 per annum. Thus there is  in twelve months a difference of  fifty dollars in favour of the Bank  of Toronto in the very first loan  transaction.  About, fifty thousand dollars  worth of debentures will have to  De issued this year, which will  probably cover works necessary  for two years. Should the successful bidder bid 98 per cent the  city will receive $49,000. This  money would be paid into the  bank with which the city holds  an account. It is probable that  this will be at the credit of the  city for six months before being  paid out to contractors. Now the  Bank of Toronto offers to pay  three per cent on such deposits.  Therefore, the city would receive  in interest on this money, if deposited with the Bank of Toronto,  seven hundred and thirty-five  dollars^ for the six months. This  is sufficient to pay the city clerk's  salary for six months; and, in  addition, would pay the magistrate's salary for twelve months,  as well as the health officer's retainer for nine months. Now  suppose, to cut the argument  finer, that this $49,000 only lies  intact for three months; then the  interest received would amount  to $367.50. Now this $367.50 is  sufficient to pay the city clerk's  salary for three months, $180 ;  the city solicitor's salary for three  months, $150 ; the medical officer's retainer for three months,  $25, and still leave $12.50, which  will pay one-fifth of the quarterly  charge on the initial loan from  the bank of $5000, at the Bank of  Toronto's five per cent rate.  Let it be carefully kept in view  that the Bank of Montreal does  not offer to pay any interest on  city dehosits, save such fixed  deposits as sinking funds, etc.  And also, let it-be remembered,  that a sinking fund account runs  for at least thirty years. So it  would appear that on just one  account, the debentures, the Bank  of Toronto is offering to give interest which would pay a good  part of the cost of civic administration ; whereas the Bank of  Montreal would only pay interest  in such cases where the city binds  itself not to touch the money for  a period of years,  y The money deposited in a sinking fund account, as a rule, is one  per cent per annum on the amount  of debentures issued. Generally  it takes one per cent per annum,  with compound" interest, forty  years in which to equal the  amount which a'sinking fund is  intended to redeem. "  We believe that -the idea was  prevalent at the last meeting of  the council that the city bankers  take charge of the marketing of  debentures. We believe that we  made it clear once before that a  debenture issue may only be made  after public bidding. The city  bankers have nothing to do with  the matter beyond receiving the  monies paid into the city account  by the successful bidder for the  issue. Even when fiscal agents  are appointed they need not be  the bank with which the city has  an account. Applicants for a  fiscal agency must bid for an  issue the same as anyone else.  We do not believe there is a single  three per cent on ordinary deposits it will be given. There is  nothing in tthe letter to indicate  that such will be the case. It  may be argued that if the bank  should refuse that three per cent  the city has the option of transferring its account. It is a fine  legal question as to whether or  not the city would be able to  withdraw its account for such a  reason. Again, it is highly improbable, in view of the treatment  accorded their original offer, that  the Bank of Toronto would be  willing to accept the account on  the same terms as they were willing to grant in the first instance.  However, as a concession to  those aldermen who maintain  that the three per cent matter is  comparatively unimportant, let  us put it to them as business men:  If you could obtain a loan for five  per cent from one bank would  you go to that bank, or to the  other, and pay six per cent ?  Would you conduct your own  business on sentimental lines ?  The Okanagan Adyertizer's .editorial column is surmounted by  the following:���  "OUR MOTTO  By thine own soul's law learn to live;  And if men hate thee, take no heed.  And if they slander, have no care;  Do thou thy work and live thy creed;  Hoe thou thy row and pray thy prayer.  Last week it published the following immediately below that  martyr-esque philosophy: "It  is a recognised fact that the Indian is lazy; content with three  meals a day and an occasional  'blow-out'." Strange,.��� is it  not?���that the owner of a meekly fatalistic philosophy should  pass such a harsh judgement on  the. aboriginals.  The Greenwood Ledge must  have struck a fault last week, as  it pinched, .down considerably.  Nevertheless there was quite a  little highgrade ore in it still. It  is to be hoped that when the vein  is developed a little more it will  again become four sheets thick.  instance in the^Dominion where  the bank which has the city account is also fiscal agent. The  only advantage of a fiscal agent  lies in the fact that as a broker  for the city there is a chance that  he might get a high price for a  stock issue in the money markets  of the.world.  Some of the aldermen appeared  to think that the three per cent  offer of the Bank of Toronto was  no advantage. We may be wrong,  but we take this opportunity to  disagree. As the city grows its  financial operations will belarger.  It is then that the real difference  in the one per cent on loans will  be noticed.  We think the question should  be re-opened.  In conclusion we wish to point  out���and we wish to strongly  emphasize this���that the assertion may possibly be made that  the Bank of Montreal is willing  to pay three per cent on such deposits as debenture sums paid  into the city's account. What the  Bank of Montreal may, or may  not, do is not a matter which  should be considered by the, aldermen . The re were two " dead-  open-and-shut" proposals to consider.

The Men Who Have Made R  ^ip^s^pfi^^^a  iiiiiiiSilP  ____> *3j&     41111111  iv   ill  WILLIAM MCINTYRE  Each week we propose to devote a certain amount of space to brief  biographical sketches of men who, by their enterprise and shrewd  foresiprhi. have contributed to the up-buildingr of the newest, and  what is potentially, one of the best cities in the'interior of the  province,���Ed.  William Mclntyre, whose photograph appears above, was  born in Sydney Mines, Nova Scotia, in 1873. His early life  was passed in what, even .today, is one of the greatest mining and manufacturing cities of the Dominion. He received  a thorough education in the public schools, and after the  the completion of his scholastic course engaged in mining in  his home town until he reached his twenty fourth year. In  1896 the Call of the West, ever-present to the youth of the  east, became insistent and allured by the reports of dazzling  success he announced his intention of seekingFortune's smiles  in the great western country. Colorado, at that time, was  on everyone's lips: and young Mclntyre's destiny drew him  thither. There he engaged in quartz and coal mining, achieving a moderate success. Not satisfied he sought a more  western sphere and in 1898 he arrived in Montana. There  he passed six years, engaged in placer and quartz mining.  Though he had a fair share of the general prosperity which  attended the majority of the mining camps of the Cowboy  State he was still dis-satisfied. He roamed the length and  breadth of the state, ever seeking better fields of activity.  Once, when in Spokane on a visit, he heard glowing reports  of the possibilities of British Columbia; the homing instinct  of tho true Canadian asserted itself and Mclntyre obeyed  the call. The new coal fields of the Crow's Nest first saw  him when he returned to his native land. He worked in  Fernie for some time and then moved again to Phoenix. Between that city and Greenwood he passed several years.  The excitement of life in the Boundary country proved  too much for him and his health broke down.    Physicians  advised a long peroid of thorough rest.    They absolutely  forbade him to remain in a city where everyone was feverish  and excited.    Mclntyre asked the doctors whether they had  any objection to him  " hitting the trail" on a prospecting  trip.    They had none, so he ]bought his blankets and camp  outfit and started out.    For two years  he and his friends  wandered over the length and breadth of the province.    In  June, 1907, he struck the Nicola valley.    Still  not strong  physically the splendid climate proved an irresistible attraction and he decided  to locate here.    He built the old hotel,  now occupied by Simpson & Cranna in August of that year.  Merritt was growing and Mclntyre was popular, so in a year  he found that larger and better quarters were imperative.  He then constructed the Coldwater Hotel,  which is unsurpassed in any interior town in the province.    It is an ornament and advertisement to the city; and travellers passing  through carried out the word that Merritt was "up-to-date."  =RealizingJ;hatJ;he^growJ;h=Q��J;he^t^^^^  that it be incorporated he at once took steps to secure that  and was largely instrumental in securing the sanction of the  provincial government for the incorporation.   With the late  William Voght, and G. B. Armstrong he applied for the incorporation of the City of Merritt.    Last year he took the  initiative in forming an electric lighting, water and power  company.    This, perhaps more than any other thing he ever  did,  has entitled him to be considered a real "Maker of  Merritt."   There is perhapsjio other city of the same size  on the continent which can boast of a lighting plant so early  in its history; and the fact that Merritt owned such a plant  has  been  an  excellent   advertisement,    Mr,   Mclntyre   is  president and chief stockholder in the enterprise. He is one  of our Captains of Industry.    Financially all his enterprises  have proved successful; but what "Mac" as his friends call  him, is more proud of, he is physically robust, and owes his  health to the Nicola valley.

During the past year, we  are informed, on the authority of  ; the officer commanding, that 30  ; per cent, of the squadron have  'attended  the   weekly   drills   at  Merritt, Nicola, Lower Nicola and  ; Middlesboro,     this"    attendance  being probably   far   and   away  ahead of any other corps in the  province.    Approximately, 2000  men will encamp in the vicinity  of Kamloops this June, and if  the "D" squadron turns,out in  strength a strong effort will be  made to get a central camp in the  Nicola Valley next year.   This  fact, apart from patriotism, should  make employers anxious to get  their militia employees away to  camp.    The largest employers of  labour in the valley (the Nicola  Valley Coal and Coke Co.) have  already announced their intention  of keeping billets warm for all  their employees who attend camp.  A few militiamen in the valley  aredupious about attending camp;  ^thesewe warnareiiable to-fine of-  five dollars for each days' absence  from camp,  which fine can  be  collected  summarily before any  single Justice of the Peace.   We  ���would also point   out that the  Militia Act provides for a fine for  each and every article of kit and  equipment missing when a man  parades   for   camp.     Although  nothing definite as to route "has  been issued from headquarters,  the squadron will in all probability march   to  Kamloops   via  Stump   Lake.     Financially the  ; past year has been very unsatisfactory,  and it was only after  much   red   tape   had been   unwound that the militia authorities  could be induced to guarantee the  rent of the local headquarters for  the present year ; the liability for  rent for the past year was borne  by the officer commanding, who  handed over to the rent fund the  command {pay and pay for drill  ; and   instruction,    which   latter  would have gone, under ordinary  circumstances, to formthe nucleus  of a  very   necessary   squadron  fund.

The  Chinese Gleaner remarks, that  although this work is not respected like a religious book, it  contains the prevailing sentiments of the people, and ' 'may be a  good standard whereby to judge  of their common opinions."  "Speculate not on distant things.  Love not beauty without  bounds.  Do not give way to anger.  Do not engage men who love  to strike.  Do not abuse the good things  of Providence.  Do not love extravagance, nor  be overanxious about being completely provided for.  Think not of things which are  above your station.  Do not destroy life.  Between two parties   do  not  speak words here and flatteries  there.  Do not stir up troubles.  Be not the president of a lantern-head society (a kind of club)  either religious or convivial.  Do not cut and carve the poor.  Do not oppress the orphan and  widow.  Do not learn the unprofitable  things.  Do not be ashamed of bad food  and coarse clothing.  Do not build summer houses.  Do not buy useless things.  Do not associate with great  people.  Do not talk of men's domestic  affairs and tell secrets.   ,  Do not put a stop to any good  affair.  Do not bring up other men's  concerns in conversations.  Do not laugh at men's appearances.  Do not blame a man for the  faults of his relations.  Do not blame a wickedness too  much.  Do not plainly call yourself  true.  Be .not proud of your wealth  or complain of your poverty.  Do not interrupt men in conversation, nor call yourself clever.  Do not say anything that has a  beginning but no end.  Do not discuss the goodness of  food and clothing.  Do not interrupt men's pleasant  chit-chat.  "GOING SOME!"  Two men who met in Chicago  last Thursday at the inquest on  Michael H. Ahearn, a former real  estate dealer, of creston, la., each  claiming to be a son of the dead  man, learned that Ahearn for fifty years had been the father of  two large families, one living in  Creston and one in Chicago.  John. Ahearn, a son of thie Creston branch of the family, lives  in Seatle. Neither family knew  of the existence of the other.  Ahearn, who was 83 years old,  died suddenly at a hotel yester-  day. At the inquest, William  Ahearn, 60 years old, who lives  here, and Matthew Ahearn, of  Creston, each identified the dead  man as his father, and gazed  amazed at the other.  William Ahearn said his father  had left a wife with four small  children in Ireland fifty years  ago, and had come to America.  The younger man, taking up the  story, said his father had married in Galesburg, 111., in 1865,  and seven children had been born,  all but one of whom are living in  Illinois and Iowa. His mother,  he said, had been dead for nine  years.  The elder man then told of  coming to America with his  mother after the four children  had become of age and of finding  the father in Chicago. William  Ahearn then applied for letters  of administration to his father's  estate in the interest of himself  and John Ahearn, the Seattle  brother.  The aged first wife'of the dead  man is now in Chicago, according  to her son, but too feeble to attend the inquest.  The dead man left property  valued at several thousand dollars, and the claims of the Chicago  family may be contested by those  in Iowa.  MUSKRATSAN ASSET  One of the greatest assets of  Canadian wealth is the muskrat.  Canada sends into the United  States alone about one and a half  million dollars' worth of furs every year, and a large proportion  of this income is derived from  the'humble denizen of swamp:  and lake. Not only is the pelt  of the muskrat excellent in itself,  but it is largely used as a counterfeit for other fur, even the  costly seal being so closely imitated as to deceive connoisseurs.  Speaking of the Canadian fur,  trade, M. R Sackett, an American consult in Ontario, says that  trappers are enjoying a prosperous season. All prices are up.  For a prime red fox pelt he is receiving as much as six dollars,  about twice as much as he received last year. The advance in  mink is not so marked.  Fashion at. present, he says,  demands longer, bushier fur,  such as the fox, lynx, and better,  grades of skunk, the latter being  largely used by the expert furrier  in the manufacture of fluffy articles of wear, but which would  hardly sell at the prices asked if  called by its right name. Mink  was again the fur of greatest  value shipped, its hold is due to  its intrinsic beauty and durability.  The best of the cheap furs  however, is muskrat, and for  this there was a sharp demand  during the past season at greatly  advanced prices. The best of  these pelts are secured in" early  spring, while the best mink fur  is obtained in early winter.  Mink caught late is too faded.  Muskrat fur is generally worn  in Canada by those who are well  dressed, but cannot afford the  higher grades of fur. It is used  for ladies' coats, muffs and neck  pieces, and in great quantities as  linings for overcoats for men. A  coat lined with the best grade of  muskrat, properly made and fitted, is far from being a cheap  garment, even-in Canada���iand-is  worn by well dressed men who  can afford the best in the market.

Ashcroft, B.C.  $2 Ifor One Year���-The News  ALLOWED TO DIE  Advices from the Orient contain criticism of inaction on the  part of the marine authorities at  Port Arthur, which resulted in  the loss of two lives. - It appears  that a disabled steamer, which  was leaking badly, hove to outside the harbor in daylight waiting for a pilot and flying the distress signal- 'yNC, "while after  dark rockots were fired. As no  assistance was forthcoming from  the port; a boat was launched, in  which the second-officer and five  sailors put off to report the plight  of the ship. A blizzard coming  on just before they reached the  harbor, the boat was driven out  to sea and was not picked up till  next afternoon,; when two of the  sailors were found frozen to death  and the remaining three, with  the second officer, had to be removed to the hospital in a critical  condition. The Leading Light,  organ of the shipping interests on  the China coast, remarks :  " It is the boast of all maritime  nations that, no vessel makes  signals of distress in vain where  aid can humanly be rendered, and  it would have been infinitely more  MUST VACCINATE  Acting under orders from  Washington, the local officers of  the United States public health  and-marine-hospitaUservice^ave  announced that all persons taking  passage from Seattle for Alaska  must submit to vaccination before  they will be permitted to embark.  Steamship men say that at least  15,000 travellers will be affected  by the vaccination order.  Dr. Bolivar J. Lloyd, of the  marine hospital service says the  order is caused by the discovery  of cases of smallpox among the  crews and passengers on ���. the  steamships calling at .Nome.  There are many places in Alaska  where there are no health officers,  and for this reason passengers  must be vaccinated before sailing,  The order applies to all vessels  in the Alaska trade, and all passengers sailing to Alaska on ships  plying from foreign ports must  show certificates of vaccination  before they will be permitted to  land in Alaska.  It is also announced that Past  Assistant Surgeon.M. F. Foster,,  of the marines hospitals service,!  will sail for Alaska to investigate,1  health conditions there, especially  with regard to the reports1 of  leprosy among some of the Indian  tribes in the Copper River region.
