The landslide which overswept  Canada in the Dominion general  Xelections yesterday was a distinct  : blow to liberalism or, rather, we  .should say to the purposed reciprocity   agreement.     It   shows  most emphatically that the Laur-  ; ier administration made a great  yi mistake in being so influenced by  XX Taf t' and Hearst as to thrust upon  ^intelligent Canadians such a one-sided piece of legislations.   The  results show this.  y    While at this hour we have not  the complete results to hand, as  y the state of parties now stands  if the Conservatives have  a   ma-  fjority of thirty-six, with" a few  I more seats to hear, from, which  will   also   include   by-elections.

JAMES POOLEY DEAD  Prominent  Rancher  and  Cattle  Man  ;   Meets Death from Accident  " The news of the death of James  Pooley, at five o'clock on Wednesday morning,, came as rather ��n  unexpected shock to-his many  friends.and acquaintances in t\ie  Nicola Valley.  Deceased met with a very unfortunate accident on Monday  last, while driving a team with a  wagon loaded.with poles down  'the.' Hamilton. -hilL~~ -The brakk  on~ his wagon was in a bad condition and failed to work���such,  at least, was the only conclusion  that could be arrived at.  Apparently  Mr.   Pooley���confident that the brake worked as  usual���being on the rather steep  incline, leant forward to put on  the brake, and, the rod not working, lost his balance and toppled  forward off the load, falling in  such a manner that at least one  of the wheels passed over his  abdomen. The horses were found  at the foot of the hill and later  Mr. Pooley was   located  about  half way down the hill in an unconscious   condition.     He   was  eohveyedyto^NicoIaT^Here^Ke'  resided v with   his   sister.     Dr.  Tutill, of Merritt, was immediately called,  and hurriedly re-  sp nded,  but all that could be  done was to alleviate the sufferings, and death ensued, as stated  above, on Wednesday morning.  bery, however, he was on a visit  to friends at Chilliwack. Had he  been upon the premises at the  time it is quite probable that a  murder might have resulted, for  such desperate criminals are riot  in the habit of taking chances.  It is presumed that the safecrackers came from Seattle way  Granite Creek  Gold Claims  285  8  154  LESS   MEAT  Some rather amusing incidents  :.occur at election mass meetings.  A traveler to the city this week  i tells us of a meeeing recently held  in Calgary at which  one of the  speakers kept continually quoting the opinions of Pat Burns the  noted.cattle ''King:    Pat's name  THE SIMPSON MEETING  The elections being now over,:  and Liberal Government hopelessly defeated/'it seems unnecessary to report fully discussions at  meetings. However, at the Conservative meeting Tuesday night,  F. E. Simpson, of Kamloops (ex-'  Liberal and ex-American), gave  a splendid address and emphatically repudiated the reciprpcity  pact. The chairman of the evening was H. S. Cleasby, and the  hall was certainly packed by  members of both parties.  PVank Coffee opened the meeting with' a short statistical address.  R. U.  Wright, of Vancouver  took  the r lati'o)n   on I ehalf" o  The doctor found the patient suf  fering from a fracture of the hip  and bowel rupture. He was able  to keep him up for a time, but  the case was hopeless from the  first.  James Pooley had been a resident in the Nicola Valley for  about twenty-five years, and was  greatly respected by all for his  honest and square dealings. For  a number of years he was proprietor of theNicola meat market,  selling out a couple of years or so  ago to Thos. Heslop. . He had  accumulated a very consideraple  portion of this world's goods.  Deceased was fifty years of age  and "unmarried.  The funeral took place at Nicola  today with military honors, the  deceased being an officer of " D "  squadron of the B. C. Horse. The  cortege left the ranch home at  two o'clock and proceeded to the  Presbyterian Church, where the  funeral service was conducted by  Rev. Geo. Murray.  The News extends its sincerest  sympathy to the sorrowing relatives friends in this sad and untimely demise.  Have Been Sold to a Company  That Means Business -  '   "  -���_What. is generally, known-aa the  Old   Stevenson   Granite    Creek  hydraulic gold claims have been  sold for the sum of $10,000 to a  syndicate of Vancouver capitalists, among whom is associated  Charles Lambert,   who,  in  conjunction with his brother Frank,  has for many years been prospecting and developing that section of the country.    They are  chiefly   responsible for   the re-  hewed, activity  which  is being  manifested ��� in   Granite Creek's  gold mining propositions.  -Some seventeen years ago  Granite Creek was a tented city  with a population of about eight  or ten thousand people. That, of  eourse==was-at=the=time-bf=the  first gold, rush there. We have  no statistics to show just how  many thousands of dollars of  placer gold was taken out at the  time, but old-timers claim that  the amount was enormous, and  that many big stakes were made.  Platinum has also been discovered at Granite Creek. In the  early days the miners threw it  away and discarded it as dirt,  knowing nothing of the value of  this now very precious mineral.-  Platinum is now well known by  the majority of people to be much  more valuable than gold.  The new syndicate will start in  at once with the most modern  hydraulic equipment to develop  its recently acquired and valuable  property.  ' ���: o������������.  ASSAULT   CHARGES  On Tuesday Frank Steel, was  fined before Magistrate Morgan  with assault upon one Jos. Stirling in a mix-up at the Star restaurant on the night of Thursday  Sept. 7th. Stirling since has  died, but upon others' evidence,1  the accused was fined $10. and  costs.  Yesterday afternoon Charles  Falkner, appeared upon practically the same charge, having been  seen to strike Stirling, was given  a fine of $20 and costs. p  It is reported that an appeal is  to be made from the above decisions by both Steel and Falconer.  A conjunctional charge of theft  against Frank Steel was dismissed.   u,yyyy v ��� ������  HORSE   STEALING   CASE  Indian Ike Switz arrested by  Provincial Constable Vachon last  week accused of horse ��� steali rig  by Indian-^Paddiy Pickles, ^s^up  ^efo^e'JudgeJ^nson^yesterday]  -���"Ttoe'iriairi question in   dispute  was whether tHere hati been any- .   6������. .���  MUCO,lw���,  thing paid on ,the horse, or npt Stirling,' considerably the:worse  brought in so many;coriiplicati6ns of liquor,   walked into the Star  Corner's  Jury- Finds That   Deceased Met His Death From  Natural Causes.  The inquest upon the body of  the late Joseph. Stirling., was  opened on Monday morning, by  Dr. Tutill, but. owing to the  lengthy evidence and cross-examination, did not conclude until  Tuesday. The jurors were Frank  M. Coffee (foreman), Archibald  G. Little, Alex. J. Coutlee, Thos.  Smith, Alfred Frechette and P.  H. Puffer.  Joseph Stirling was found by  Constable Strang, late on- the  night of the fall exhibition, Sept. '  7th, lying in a- drunken stupor  close to the Star restaurant."��� He  was taken to the local lock-up.  Next morning he was brought up  and a minimum fine was-iiriposed. -=  Through the night the half-breed  was sick, but was able, to clean  his cell in' the morning. *>' His face  was swollen on the .left-ja-w-and  cheek and his Jig j^s j?ujL^tj*.��" 'j ���  It appeared from^ the evidence  that, on the night! in  question,  and mixed evidence, that, after  about four hours of exarninatiori  of the ''insX arid outs,'' of the  matter, the judge, who has been  attending county court at Nicola,  ���in order to facilitate matters-  made the Merritt court a temporary Supreme Court holding, and  after all. the evidence was in, dismissed the case.  Judge   Swanson   returned   to  Kamloops today.  COUNCIL    MEETING  LOCAL FIRM HAS CONTRACT  The Nicola Valley Coal & Coke  Company has let the ro-wiring  arid remodeling of their electric  light plant at Middlesboro to the  local firm of electricians, Perdue  and Hayward. If the/poles arrives on time and the work on  the new tipple goes on as rapidly  as expected, they think the job  can be completed in about six  weeks. The initial work was  started this morning.  These two young men havi  been kept very busy since they  branched out in business a short  while ago.  The regular meeting of. the City  Council was held Monday evening, the Mayor and all the  aldermen, with the exception of  Mr. Boyd, being present.  The Council at the present time  is without a. meeting place, and  Merritt is without a city lock up,  Provincial , Policeman Vachon  having given, the Council notice  that iri future they would have to  make other arrangements for a  meeting place as well as. gaol accommodation, ns the Provincial  Court house and gaol would not  be at their disposal.  The selection of a suitable building was gone into and the council  finally decided to lease A. Gor-  don'a building on Nicola'Avenue.  A special meeting of the  I Council will be held tonight f or  the purpose of receiving the city  assessment roll, and also to decide  upon ways and means for the  borrowing money for the purpose  of erecting a building adequate  for court room and jail purposes1.  to injuries, received a week or  ten days previous.

Frank Steel, one  of the proprietors, it was stated,  ran out and dragged him back  into the room, where he and his ���  partner, Falconer, took off his  chaps and spurs to hold until the  meal was paid for, the amount  being four bits.  -Geo. Stirling, a cousin of-the  deceased, swore that he was in  the restaurant when the trouble  over the meal occured and -that  outside=-the=building^he^saWia=  cook or waiter bunt Joe with his  head upon the jaw and the latter  fell upon some boards. He got  upon his horse and went to  shack of deceased's brother Eddie and told him Joe Was being  '���licked" at the Star.   -  Eddie paid Joe's fine next  morning and he and Constable  Vachon went to restaurant and  secured the chaps, etc., upon  payment of price of the meal.  Joe mounted his horse and  went home. He complained of  being sick that day and took to  his bed on Saturday, the 9th.  According to the evidence of  A. F. Rankine, Stirling was  ejected from the restaurant after  his chaps and spurs were taken  off. He started to come back  however, and was struck by Falconer outside near the kitchen.  We have not space to give full  report of the case, but the evi-  dencd went to show that their  certainly had been a-row of some  kind at the Star, in which .Stirling and the partners were implicated. ;  Sterling died a few days ;late?r.

RECREATION   GROUNDS  In speaking upori the matter to  many of the residents of Merritt,  Nicola and other sections of .the  valley, it certainly seems to be  the consensus of' opinion that  permanent; grounds should be  secured without delay for the fall  exhibition here, and for a race  trock and other- recreation purposes. .:,'���.:     7   '.;,..-  If these grounds are not secured without the least possible delay  we shall find ourselves in the  soup " a_s faras getting suitable  property for the desirable���nay,  necessary���purposes mentioned,  unless we get away back two or  three miles in the woods.   ;  When land was cheap right in  Merritt it could easily have been  secured at a comparatively small  price, but property here is in -  creasing in value all the time and  most of the best of it is already  gobbled up.  A location that is deemed most  adaptable is the site upon which  the late fall fair was held. It is  ideal in a great many respects.  From a scenic standpoint it is  -surely an admirable spot for park  purposes. The lay ^of the ground  is such that a first-class race track  could easily be built and arrangements made for the baseball,  football, cricket and tennis fields/  _This;iand~is a part^Ohe~y6gh~t  estate and is now on the.market  for sale.  Is there any reason why the  Nicola Valley Agricultural and  Horticultural Association and.the  City Council snould not take this  into serious consideration and see  what can be done towards the  purchasing of this tract for the  so much-needed recreation purposes ?  If something is not done at  ��� onee we shall be forced to repent,  like many another foolish young  town has done.  The opportunity was ours once  to take a choice of a park at a  very reasonable figure ; now we  shall, of course, never get such  another close-in proposal again.  If this matter is let.go till next  year, where will we get off at ?  Possibly on the bench lands of  Iron mountain.  should be proud to see it and en  courage it.    Thus shall our vast  tracts of God's bouhtifulness be  peopled  by  an   intelligent and  progressive race of our own kind,  who   will readily be developed  into permanent, patriotic, solid  citizens, who will adhere to one  flag���that which protects their  homes   and   their   rights ��� and  whose posterity will be educated  in our schools, become a part of  oar   Commonwealth   and   even  tually assume their logical positions as important and political  life���in fact, become a ;part and  parcel of, ..and inseparable from,  our proud standard of Cariadian-  ism, the sanie as hnve those true  settlers from the old land.  This is all coming (as it has  already come, but on a smaller  scale, in years gone by) and it  will be good. It,has been prated  and foreboded by alarmists that  these inroads of United States  settlers may result in dire effects  upon our national constitutionalism and that such;> a preponderance of : republican ideas will be  brought to bear as to one day  effectually bring about assimilation and annexation. Nay, nay,  Pauline; the greater will absorb  the lesser, and ehe chances are  that the average immigrant  settler, coming to Canada is hot  only annexing himself to a better  line of prosperity, ^than^lie has;  known, but he; is also getting' a  shade the best of it from a gov-  ernmerital^standpoint. Are hot  our laws comprehensi ve enough,  our national intelligence.-': high  enough, bur resources great  enough, our climate salubrious  enough and our future assured  enough to defy an attitude of  superiority from any other country on the face of God's footstool?  Yea, verily. Why is it the great  number of American settlers" in  Canada are voting at the present  election for the tariff wall?-  Intelligent settlers from Great  Britain, United States, or any  other civilized and progressive  =nation=come-here=imbued=with=  the spirit of expansion and are  bound to establish - a home for  themselves and a future for their  children. What time or thought  have such as theseT for dipping  deeply into the harrowing details  of republicanism, imperialism or  the score of other "isms" which  the yellow journals delight in  diplaying **in their scare heads^  Not for them ! Their plan is  prosperity ; their hope; success.  They want, and will demand,  good government, and at present  writing we trust that their  chances of getting it in Canada  are as bright and favorable as in  any of the lands they have left.  Let us, then, encourage clean,  white, empire-building immigration. -  HIGH-GRADE   IMMIGRATION i  When this page goes to press  the great election strife will not  yet have ended, and while the  News has no sympathy for the  reciprocity pact it believes in the  highest possible grade of immigration.

It May Not Be Very Bad, but It Is a Sure  Indication of Weakened Kidneys  -���' You pay life insurance even if you  don't expect to die right away���-you do  it to make old age comfortable or to  protect  your family.  What about that little pain in your  back? It's your kidneys calling for  health insurance���warning you that old  age will not be comfortable���that Rheumatism or Diabetes will afflict you  ultimately.  You think you are strong and can  afford to neglect it, and that you will be  all right in a day or so. Perhaps you  will, and if it never recurs you are no  worse off, but the kidneys have a well-  known habit of repeating offences of  that sort.  Why not insure your kidneys against  future trouble by taking a ��� good kidney  prescription: like Nyal's Stone Root  Compound? That is just as reasonable  as life insurance. Your freedom from  well-developed kidney trouble in later  years will bring your family more happiness and satisfaction than receiving a  cheque from your life policy.  Nyal's Stone Root Compound is a  scientific product with a record that  earns your respect.  The cost���a dollar a big bottle���is  trifling as an insurance against future  trouble. A strong man hates a bottle  of medicine, but the strong men are  just as easy victims of kidney trouble  as  the weak  ones. ;  If you try this remedy we know you  will be pleased. Nyal Remedies we sincerely believe to be the best medicine  values offered. 6  Sold and Guaranteed by  Gemmill & Rankine Merritt  I  JOE   HOLLER.

Nothing but imagination and a  higher cost.  Custom tailoring has not advanced a step in a generation.    Ask your father or look at some of his old clothes.  Fit-Reform Suits and Overcoats do not leave a single advantage with she custom tailor.    Only���the designing,  cutting and tailoring of one suit at a time, costs twice as much and adds nothing to the suit.  you have been paying $35 or $40 to a tailor, we can put you in a Fit-Reform Suit at $25 or $30 that will be  a revelation of the perfection of Fit-Reform meth^  Its all right to stick to an old superstition when money comes freely,    But a man should investigate the fact when he has no money to waste.

The Children  Write Essays  Upon What They Saw and Did  on Exhibition Day  Miss C. Murray, teacher of  grade III. at the local public  school, conceived a bright and  commendable idea when she had  the pupils in herroom write essays  upon what they saw on exhibition  day, Sept. 7th.  Of course, it will be understood  that each of the essays were  written by young boys and girls  who have just entered the third  reader. Although amusing in a  sense, the four essays which follow are not published by any  means for the purpose of ridicule.  They are published because they  are interesting," and, .'the idea  which prompted Miss Murray to  have them written is certainly  worthy of emulation. It is one  of the best ways to cause children to become observant and a  great impetus to their education  along  the  line   of composition.  Although grammatical errors  occur, naturally, with children so  young, they have done exceedingly well, and a few more trials  like this (with their mistakes  pointed out) would most assuredly  show a vast improvement and  eause them to take a deeper interest in the work, which may be  so useful to them in after life.  The penmanship shown in each  of the essays is surprizingly good,  and deserves great praise for the  youngsters. The raw material is  there and it; only needs encouragement, and practice by the  youngsters, to bring it to a state  of perfection. Here are the  essays : ���  WHAT I SAW AT THE EXHIBITION  I saw Turro Puffer's drawing  and a lot of other drawings too;  I have seen a lot of nice knitted  pieces of cloth. There were two  nice blankets at the exhibition  with all colors on them. ;Lsaw a.  very nice pillo w atfthe exhibition  I saw a lot of cakes and bread.  I saw great big cabbages, and  onions, carrots, potatoes, peas  turnips, beans and two musk-  mellons. I saw a lot of apples at  the exhibition. Some of them  were white, some were red. and  some green color. I saw some  jam at the exhibition. I saw  some, hens, roosters, ducks and  some turkeys yesterday. I saw  a lot of horses yesterday. I saw  some cows and calves yesterday.  I saw som sheep yesterday. I  saw some pigs yesterday. I saw  some games yesterday that.the  menlwere playing. I saw a candy  store=yesterday=at=the exhibition^  I saw a man with cup in his hand  while the other man was driving  the wagon, and the other men  were following them with their  horses around the field, then they  went out. ��� W. K., junior 3rd.  PISHING  On Thursday afternoon at 4  o'clock two of my brothers and I  went about a mile up the Nicola  river fishing. We used Kater  worm for bait. The fish did not  bite good that day. The first  place we fished at was at a bend  in the river were it ran very  quick. We caught a greyling and  two trout there. We waded down  were we could, but were it was  deep we had to go through the  bushes. In on place when we  were going through the bushes  we saw three ant hills. When  we were fishing in one place my  brother caught a greyling sixteen  inches long and it broke his rod.  It was getting dark now so we  thought we would go home.  When we got home it was about  eight o'clock. We got something  to eat as we were pretty hungry.  ���N.'W., class junior 3.  lions and one of the lions bit the  girls hand. And I saw a show  and in the show I saw a statue  turn to life and it turned back to  a statue again. And they could  take her head off. And the third  time it turned into a ladder of  roses and it faded away little by  little. I saw lots of clowns. One  was a big fat one and his face  was painted red and he had a  great big head and a little hat.  When the people would come in  he would run after them till they  came to there seat. I saw lots of  fancy work and big dolls sewing  on mechine. There were lots of  fruit there. And I saw a man  called a deep sea diver, be cause  he went down in water it was  very deep and he brought up  things from the water, and a  man pumped air down to him.  There was a man who swallowed  some nedals and then some thread  and then the nedals came up  threaded, he said that the nedals  were easyer than the thread to  swallow.���P. MacD., junior 3rd.  (This essay was apparently  written by a child who had been  at a circus, or possibly New Westminster exhibition, and who misunderstood the teacher's local  application as to the conditions.)  A STORY ON THE EXHIBITION  The Exhibition is'held on the  7th of Sept. :J At the  Exhibition,  you see all kinds of things such  as cattle,   poltry,    cookry,   pictures, writing, drawing, vegetables, fancy-work, and a  lot more;  things.    These things are put to  see if they can win a prize.    You  cannot put the things  in unless  they are your own  or you made:  them or unless you grow them.5  There was horse  racing.    There  was a tent where you  could by  something to eat and there was a'  store where you could by things-./  The band was there and it sounded yery nice.    We had a ride in  a rig and we had our f otagraphs  taken' and we played hid-and-go-  seek down by the river.    If you  red card on your stuff or else a  blue one. If the horse wone they  would have there tickets tied on  there heads. At night when the  show was closing up and pretty  near all the people had gone, the  people give the children cake and  things that were left over.���  E. H. junior 3rd.

Imperfect Kidney Action  Causes Rheumatism  Rheumatism with its kindred ailments  ���lumbago, Wry Neck, Neuralgia, etc.,  seually results from lodgments of uric  add in the joints and muscles.  Now the chief function of the kidneys  is to properly filter this poison from the  blood.  Only when they tall 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 twines  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. \ ��  Ask your own druggist about tbeao  remedies.  Hb opinion is worth whik.  INCORPORATED 1855. 7  100 Branches in Ontario, Quebec and  The West.
