They:  are having plains prepared, fori  a two storey building, the first;  floor of which will be devoted  exclusively to their business.-  The architect has been commissioned to design a building  which will be specially adapted  to the requirements of their  business, and it is expected that  when completed it will be one  of the most up-to-date establishments in the city. The growth  of this firm's business during the  past twelve months has made it  necessary to secure more room.  For that reason they purchased  the lot from Messrs/ W, Mclntyre and G. B. Armstrong.    ;  MIDDLESBORO SMOKER  The last bi-weekly smoker at  the Middlesboro Club was held  last Saturday evening, with a  large attendance of members and  their friends from outside points.  It was made the occasion for  presenting the club's wedding  gift to Mr. and Mrs. G. B. Ges-  sing.  In making the presentation of  the dining set to Mr, Gessing  President Mackenzie - look. pcca  sion to pay a glowing tribute to  the former for the unselfish manj-  ner in which he had worked to  place the club on its feet when it  was first inaugurated. The api  plause which interrupted his re-  marks^was. an.elpq^ent^testimony  that the members "concurred iri.  the sentiments expressed. The  gift was so unexpected that Mr.  Gessing was at a loss for a reply,  and so, amid laughter, he said:  'Til just say 'thank'you' and sit  down."  The program for the evening  was lengthy and it vfas not until  after midnight that jthe smoker  was concluded.  Following was the programme:  , Piano solo...... ..1 Mr. Bullen. ������  Song........-..... :l A. Kemp.  Song........... /.R.  Jackson.

Thomas. is a professional, and  many hoped to get a, line on his  work for his fight with Bracken;  but he was under blankets and  nothing was shown.. '  It was altogether ah enjoyable  evening and, judging by the attendance the other night, it is  probable .that this -will prove the  most successful. feature of club  life at.

Judge Swanson, in the County  Court at Nicola last Wednesday,  had a light list to dispose of. The  most important case, perhaps,  was that of Rex vs. George, being  a charge of obtaining money, un-  >der false pretences. The sum  involved was $360.00.  ,��� B. C. Footner, of Walhachin,  was the chief witness for the  Crown. The case was conducted  by Mr. Morley, of Kamloops; Mr.  H. Colin Clarke, of Vancouver,  appearing for the defence. The1  latter submitted that the false  pretences relied on was not of a  past or present fact as provided  by the code, and if it was it was  not the inducing cause for parting  with the money. His Honour  found for the defendant.  S. N. Dancey failed to appear  in response to a judgment summons for a debt of $68.45. A  committal order of twenty days  imprisonment was suspended for  ten days to give the defendant  time to pay.  CURLING CLUB NOTES.  There was a crowded meeting  of members of the Merritt Curling Club in the board of trade  rooms on Wednesday night. It  was decided to go ahead with  the.erection of a protecting shed  on the rink as soon as an ice bed  is fyrmed. It was also decided  to purchase four sets of curling  stones. There was some discussion of reducing fees to those  who used their own stones but  nothing came of it.  DANCE AT NICOLA  ;       !  The bachelors of Nicola enter-]  tained a large number of friends  from various points in the valley  at a dance given . in honour of  Mr. and Mrs. E. Durland, whq  returned from the east last  Friday evening. Pooley's hall  was beautifully decorated for  the occasion, and the guests  tax"d it to c ipucity; Mr. and,  Mrs. Durland wore married at  Nelson, B. C, a few. weeks ago  ai.d Wv nt cast on thuir honeymoon. Mr. Durland is well  known throughout the valley as  the accountant for the A. E.  Howse company.  Made Man from Spokane Look  Like an Amateur.  It did not take ten rounds for  Kid Bracken to demonstrate to  the audience in Menzies' Hall  last evening that he was absolutely master of Spokane Thomas  at every kind of fighting, .Bracken entered the ring at 137 1-2  pounds and Thomas looked 20  pounds heavier. When Referee  Barnes announced that the men  would protect themselves at all  times the crowd knew that a  whirlwind bout was on tap.  Bracken has a bit of the Nelson  style and considerable. of Ad  Wolgast in his infighting. Itis  natural that he should sjiow a  good deal of the latter's style in  his work as he. trained with the  lightweight champion for some  months. Aside from his boring  tactics the most remarkable features of his fighting are a jarring  right, which starts high and  finishes either flush on the jaw  or over the heart; It is almost  impossible to say where' it;will  land when he starts it. With it  he generally sends in'(a vicious  left rip to the body. He ^has a  haymaker in either mit.. Thomas  showed ability to protect his  body, but the peculiar right sent  his head back time after time.  He might have made a much  better showing had he only  jumped in when he had openings  and mixed matters a little. .  FIGHT BY ROUNDS..  . 1. .

Armitage and Hutchison will be  occupied in the subdivision of  the Tamerton ranch at Nicola.

Most of the local Chinese are from that province.  The two great figures of the rebellion in China, Dr. Sun Yat  Sen and Viceroy Yuan Shi Kai,  are now heroes, or demi-gods, to  the expatriated Cantonese,  o���.  B.C. GAZETTE  -The current issue of the B.C.  Gazette, the official organ of the  provincial government, contains  the announcement of the appointment of Messrs. H. H.  Matthews, of Nicola; and A. N.  B. Rogers of this city, as direc-  tors of the Nicola Valley General  Hospital Board of Eirectors.  In the same issue is the announcement that Joseph Albert  Maughan, solicitor, of the City  of Merritt, has been made a  Notary Public.  POLICE COMMISSION.  The police commissioners met  in their regular session at the  City Hall last' Wednesday afternoon. It was decided to call for  applications for the position of  chief of police and night constable. Quite a number of applications were received, but it  was thought advisable to call for  applications, to be in by Nov.  28^ In the event bf Alex Strang  being appointed chief of police  it will be necessary to have  another night constable. Strang  is acting chief since the suspension of Chief Brown.   .  _���-���o  Don't forget the dance at  Middlesboro tomorrow night.  Fine orchestra. A good time  for all.   Admission 75c.  TO BE FORMED  LocalBusiness Men Propose to Have  Resort in City  At a well attended meeting of  local and district business and  professional men, held in the offices of the Southern B. C. Lands  and MinesrLtd., last Monday evening, a committee consisting of  Messrs Joseph Graham, J. E.  Walker and R. Campbell was appointed to investigate the possibilities for the successful inauguration of a club in this city.  The first question to be decided would be that of quarters.  The committee have already seen  various men and it is understood  that William Schmock, who owns  the block on which are located  the Star Cafe, Brunswick Pool  Room and Brown & Pennington's  barbershop, is now considering  the erectionof a new building on  the site of the Star Cafe, the upper stories of which will be devoted to club purposes. If at the  next meeting it is found that this  scheme is feasibleyt is probable  that an agreement will be entered into with Mr. Schmock for the  lease of such premises. Meanwhile the committee are investigating temporary quarters.  The proposal to form a club in  this city is one which has been  often mooted heretofore, but it  was not until Joseph Graham and  a few others took up the question  that any practical turn was given  to matters. It soon.developed,  when the latest movement.was  undertaken, that there is a strong  sentiment in favour of such . an  establishment in the city,and it  is now certain that every possible support will be given the undertaking..  As to the means to be. adopted .  in financing such a scheme jib definite plan has been adopted, but  it is possible that a company will  be formed and debentures  issued to cover initial  expenses. This plan was adopted in Nanaimo when the first  club  was  formed  there, and it  proved very successful.   o :������  Mrs. Shaw, wife of.- the police  magistrate in Vancouver, and  Miss Laird aie spcidirg the  winter months at Nicola.  Captain Turner, of Aspen  Grove, left today for Calgary.  FOOTBALL   MEETING  All people interested in football  will meet at the Grand Hotel  this evening at eight "o'clock  for the purpose of dicussing the  local situation in regard to the  best sport in the world. Business of importance is to be transacted and it is expected that a  large number of players of the  game will be present.  ���        nn w_uoc i uiCntKE���������  Dr. J. J. Gillis, who graduated  in medicine from McGiil University two years ago, has arrived  in the city to practice as assistant  to Dr. Williams. Dr. Gillis was  for two years chief assistant to  Professor Bell in the latter's  hospital in Montreal. Professor  Bell wxi 013 of th-ii greatest  surgeons in the Dominion, so  there is no doubt that his protege  has had ample opportunity to  perfect himself in the practice of  his profession. Dr. Williams now  having an assistant will be able  to devote himself to private practice in other valley points as well  as in the, vicinity of Merritt.  J.

NOW IS THE TIME  TO   HAVE  YOUR PAINTING DONE  PAUL A. KERSHNER  PAINTER AND PAPERHANGER  Can do it to you ^satisfaction, and he  GUARANTEES  THE  VICAR   DIES.  Elsewhere in these columns  will be found a brief despatch  in which the circumstances attending the death of the late  Rev. T. Walker are recounted.  He died by his own hand in a  moment of temporary insanity,  and with his passing we record  the transmigration of a simply  pure and noble life.  Until two weeks ago Mr. Walker was vicar of St. Michael's  church. He came to Merritt a  little over a year ago, as curate,  and he was ordained about the  middle of the year. During his  vicariate he was an indefatigable  worker and popular with his  parishioners.  There is something about  every man who has all manly  attributes that attracts all classes, regardless of differences in  matters of faith and opinions.  Mr. Walker was such a one. We  believe that he had not an enemy  in the Valley.  He was catholic in his sympathies; and we well recall the day,  last summer, when he came  into this office with a cppy of a  recent issue of the paper. In  that copy we had reproduced  part of an editorial which appeared in the Vancouver Province.    In it occurred the lines:  In men whom men condemn as ill  I find so much of goodness still-  In men whom men pronounce divine  I find so much of sin and blot���  I hesitate to draw the line  Between the two���where Godhasnot.  He pointed to the lines and said  "I like that sentiment," then  turned and walked out. It was  typical of him.  At another time certain people  came to him with the request  that he sign a certain petition.  Mr. Walker did not approve of  the object which it was desired  to achieve, and he dismissed the  delegation: "Liveand let live is  my motto." That also was  typical.  Always cheery and optimistic,  never admitting depression ;  when his cruel accident befell  him he suffered keenly. It is  difficult for one sound in body to  properly appreciate the agony  which such an injury as he sustained will cause. He partially  recovered and went down to  Vancouver. There he met with  another accident while out driving, and in his renewed pain  his mind gave way. A guardian  was appointed to watch him, to  prevent the very tragedy which  finally removed him.  ^���Merritt monrnpgrnan.  time.     We have been disappointed.  We understand that a'judge is  to be appointed to the Small  Debts Court in Merritt at an  early date. Mr. Morgan should"  not receive that appointment.  The circumstances connected  with his appointment as magistrate were such that ther'provin-  cial government,"as all in the  Valley are aware, cannot beheld  responsible.  The situation today is this : it  would be better if we had Justices of the Peace at work than  the present magisterial system.  A police magistrate needs a  judicial temperament. He. also  needs to be familiar with legal  procedure; not necessarily to be  a lawyer, but to be conversant  with legal forms.  A change in this city is inoperative.  not say what it is like; but National anthems, like . poets, are  born, noty made, .Meanwhile  there is nothing the matter with  "God Save the King." ;  HARRYH.WARD  Real Estate  and Insurance  Representing'old^board companies such as:  "Sun",    "Norwich Unicr,",  X'i i )1<1 i" f i c" (il < u.    ;  Your Patronage is Solicited.

Morgan is a business  man of this city. As such we  cannot criticise him; nor do we  wish to. We believe that he is  very prompt in the payment of  all his obligations;cin fact, even  under pain of giving free advertising, we are compelled to say,  in all fairness, he is just as  prompt in making cash payments  as he is in receiving them.  Furthermore/the growth of his  business is testimony to his competency as a salesman.  On His Worship Magistrate  Morgan we find that we cannot  look with equal favor : and we  are not hypercritical at all.

For five hundred years the heel  of the Manchu crushed all tendencies to a national assertive-  ness. Now, stretching lethargically, the waking millions are  freeing themselves of the Frankenstein which their disorganization brought upon them.  There is something awe-  inspiring in this organised, and  yet disorganized, rebellion.  China, to the western mind, is  ever a cryptic country. Divided  into provinces, which in turn are  subdivided into cities, which in  turn are still further subdivided  by the political scheming of the  Manchus; in each province a  different dialect and with only  the written language a universally comprehended medium for  the exchange of knowledge:  what a stupendous task confronted those who undertook to  supplant the dragon with the  star!  Dr. Sun Yat Sen, once the  heso of an international incident  in London, is the Will-o'-the-  wispish figure who flits impressively in the background of the  revolution. Yuan Shi' Kai is the  man to whom he is a familiar.  Both are figures which will stand  out in history. *^3K"* T7��*^" ? >"  The emperor is in hiding. The  court is disbanded. A parliament is promised. What will be  the final outcome? Will China  relapse again to its former state  of innocuous desuetude? Or will  the tricolored flag remain. in the  march of progress?

Press Clipping Bureau  is the name by which a new venture is named. The.object of it  is to furnish public men with  condensed excerpts of press  opinions on matters affecting the  province. It is also designed to  enable newspapermen to ascertain how their opinions are received by other journalists. It  is an excellent institution and  one which will fill a long-felt  want.  Alex Lucas is at Ottawa.  While there he will endeavor to  convince the Dominion government of the necessity for giving  the provincial government absolute control of streams having  theirsource^n^any'parr^of^the'  province.  The attitude of thegovernment  critics in the German Reichstag  towards Great Brittain would be  amusing, if it were not within  the bounds of possibility that it  might be serious.    That Germany  has been obliged  to back down  before France is as plain as anything can be.    The 800,000 armed men that France is able to put  into the field, her splendid chain  of fortresses,   her   network   of  strategical railways present much  too formidable a factor for Germany to undertake to force. But  it would never do for the victors  of the Franco-Prussian war to  admit this.   Another excuse must  be found, and the hardest is the  suggestion that it was the British government that compelled  the Kaiser to backdown.    Asa  matter of fact the Kaiser and his  advisors realized that they had  got themselves into a situation  out of which there was no other  way except retreat.  Finest Pool Room in the Interior.

Even the Lord,  We're told, does  Not love a Grouch  But he must love home builders,  judging from the contented feeling the ownership of. a home  gives and the usual prosperity  that besets most people who  start out in life with a hearth of  their own. This home building  custom is one that never will die  out because it has so many advantages and means so much to  the nation, and the sooner you  decide to build the sooner you  will find yourself growing optimistic and happy. We have  worked hand in hand with a good  many home builders, aud while  the lumber alone that we sold  them was enough to make any  man happy, we're inclined to  allow some credit for their over-  excess yf joy to that independent  feeling a home brings.

Next door to Brunswick  a   Pool Room  Had Never Recovered From Effects  of Accident at Merritt  Despondent and morbid on account of his long illness, Rev. T.  Walker, a Church , of England  clergyman, took his own life in  St. Luke's home last night. He  was found this morning hanging  by the rope of his dressing-gown  from one of the rafters of the  woodshed, next to St. Luke's  Home, and it was evident from  his appearance that he had tried  to slash his throat with a safety  razor before hanging himself.  Some three months ago Rev*  Mr. Walker was in charge of the  mission at Merritt when a rock  from a railway cut where some  blasting was being done, struck  him on the side. He seemed to recover somewhat from the effects  of the accident, but was later  compelled to resign from* his  charge at Merritt and enter St.  Luke's Home here.  During the past few days it  was feared that Mr. Walker's  reason was leaving him, but yesterday he seemed to be much better, and none of his friends suspected that he was in such a desperate state of mind.  Mr. Walker came here from  England about a year ago and was  ordained in New Westminster.  He was only abont Jhirty-one  years of age and Merritt was his  first charge.���Vancouver Province.  This judgment ends a famous  case which has been on the federal and district court dockets  since 1908, being held on continuances and negotiations out of  court.  The plaintiff who receives the  $1,000 is Julius Deel. Deel sued  for $25,000 damages. He alleged  he sustained a sprain of the spine  and many cuts, bruises and lacerations when he was initiated  into the order at Spirit Lake,  Iowa.  SPORT  M.S. & D. CLUB.

A PRETTY TALE  An old soldier walked up and  down the streets of Vienna playing a violin to earn his daily bread.  After a times his hand became  feeble and tremulous, and he  could no longer make music. One  day the old man sat on the curb  weeping. A man came along and  said:  "My friend, you are too feeble  to play; give me your violin."  He took the instrument and began to discourse most exquisite  music. People who were passing  stopped.-=^A=cr��wd=gathered.=  While the stranger played the  violin the old man held his hat,  and into it fell the coins which  the enraptured townspeople willingly gave. When the hat was  full the stranger said:  "Now put that coin in your  pocket, and hold your hat again."  Then the man played more  sweetly than he had before, and  the tears ran down the faces of  the people who listened. When  the hat was filled the second time,  the violinist dropped the instrument and passed on.  "Who can it be," the people  exclaimed.  "Why," said a man in the  crowd "it is Bucher the greatest  of violinists,"  And so it was. He just took  the old soldier's place, and assumed his poverty and shouldered his burden, and played his instrument and earned for him the  coin he needed so n.uch.  ITEMS  The great violinist Paganini  was once kept in Prison for four  years as a "suspect." During  that time his violin had only one  string; but by incesant practice  he acquiled so wonderful an execution that he could produce  more music with one string than  any other violinist could do with  the usual number.  The Ottawa Citizen learns that  the Militia department intends to  send two or three officers to England shortly to take lessons in  aviation. We quote: 'Recently  two officers were sent to the tests  planned to be held by the U. S.  government at Atlantic City, but  which had to be postponed by  reason of unfavorable weather.  The reports they brought back,  however impressed the minister  with the desirability of further  investigation, and to this end  officers will go to England. Itis  then quite probable that a branch  of aerial navigation by war balloons or aeroplanes will be established in connection with the department."  General Agen,       V. D. CURRY,       Vernon, B.

Victoria, Nov. 19.���Many important changes in the legislative  provisions regulating municipal  government will be put forward  by the Union of British Columbia  Municipalities to the Provincial  Government at the next session  of the Legislature following the  result of the seventh annual convention of the ..union now in session in this city.  Among the leading matters  which today received consideration was that recommending a  change in the Municipal Clauses  Act, whereby the law as now  constituted giving the right to  only a registered owner of land  to vote upon money by-rlaws,  will be changed to permit of  similar privileges to an agreement holder who has registered  his agreement irrespective of his  assessable interest in the property.  Another important recommendation which will go to the legislature is that asking that legislation be enacted whereby  government and municipal ownership in telephones can be established throughout the province.  The convention refused to adopt  the recommendation that the  Boards of License Commissioners  be elected by ballot at the regular municipal elections. Also  the convention favored the  giving of power to the municipalities to abolish the ward system  in favor of a majority of the  electors at an election favoring  this step..  Many other amendments to  the Municipal Clauses Act were  also considered.  The convention of the Union  of B.C. Municipalities will be  held at Revelstoke next year.  The following officers were  elected: President, Mayor Planta,  Nanaimo; vice-president, Mayor  Lee, New Westminster; secretary-treasurer, Reeve Bose,  Surrep; executive���Mayor .-Hamilton, Revelstoke, Reeve Weart,  Burnaby,- Reeve Dick, Mission,  Reeve Pound, South Vancouver,  Reeve McNaught, North Vancouver, Aid.
