Discussed by City  Council and Bylaws Will be Submitted  The. longest session ever held  by the city council concluded:, at  half past one on Tuesday rnorri-  ing. At this the question of fire  protection, electric lighting and  street improvement and the  school site question were taken  up at length, the final decision  being to introduce bylaws to pro-,  vide for an electric lighting plant,  waterworks system, sidewalks on  various streets, and for the purchase of the site upon which the  new school building has been erected. "*���."'  The estimated cost of a suitable  waterworks system, as prepared  by Dutcher, Maxwell & Co, of  Vancouver, is forty' thousand  dollars; for an electric lighting  plant twenty thousand dollars.  Bylaws to borrow these amounts  on debentures will be introduced  at special sessions of the city  council during the week.  The sum necessary to construct  three plank sidewalks at all necessary points throughout the city  is placed at ten thousand dollars  and bylaws providing for the  borrowing of this amount will also' be dealt with. .  t  As stated some time ago it is  necessary for the city  to:.issue  three thousand dollars worth of  debentures to provide for the acquisition of a deed to the property upon which the new large  school has   baen   lccited.   This  property, it will be recalled, was  originally    purchased    by    the  school board last year  an d  the  money necessary forthetransfer  to the. school authorities was ^advanced byMessrs.-Eastwood arid  Cleasby, they taking f rorii; Mr.  Joseph   Collett    a  trust  deed,  which they will turn over to the  J | city as soon as ever the the "prin-  -Jjcipal advanced  by   them,   with  interest at seven per cent., is repaid them.     y  It is probable:'that these bylaws will be submitted to the  ratepayers in about two weeks  time, and it isjof the greatest  importance : that the council's  action in submitting them be ap  proved.        X. y> -  A by-law to deal with the matter of the erection of stove-pipes  and chimneys v^as dealt with,  and it,is now necessary for intending builders^ to secure the  approval of thejcity authorities  before constructing chimneys etc.  Another bylaw^ which has long  been awaitedyis that dealing  with the width of streets and alleys upon new subdivisions submitted to the council for their  approval.  An amendment to the Health  bylaw was passed by - which a  charge of seventy-five cents per  hour will be made, by the city  for clearing debris from'-lots. etc.  Ordinary scavenging will be done  free bf charge. 7X  The plans of the city hall submitted by S. Bird: were approved.  The waterworks bylaw provides for a pumbing plant to be  erected and a reservoir' on the  property of .the Nicola Valley  Coal and Coke Company, from  which distributing mains will  carry the waterpto various sec  tions of the city.  . \w  BI  I  NO SCHOOL NEXT WEEK  '���'."':;   -^ ���       ���''    ' ��� y>_,  Owing to the absence of Principal McKenzie there will be no  school next week;   Mr.. McKenzie leaves for Kamloops at the  end of this week to attend the  convention of school teachers .'.of  the province which will commence  next Tuesday and last all week.  The teachers of British Columbia  meet annually for the purpose of  discussing various problems encountered in their work,-with) a  yiew'to'improving:^i'e-ischolastic  standard.     Various papers are  read   on   different  topics .after  which there follows a ��� general  discussion by the teachers present.  ����� ���  IS EXPECTED  Merritt Will Boom More Than Ever  Before and More Solidly  With the complete disappearance of the snow, the weather  warming and  thawing out  the  ground, already preparations are  being   made   for   plowing    and  seeding,  and  many   owners   of  small gardens, haye commenced  turning up the soil.     With the  city council contemplating large  expenditures for the permanent  benefit of the.the city, and the  council and the board of trade  co-operating in   the issue of a  pamphlet which will adequately  advertise the resources and potentialities of Merritt   and the  surrounding district,  and banks  and business houses making preparations for large expenditures,  and the Canadian Pacific Railway  undertaking to rush the construction of a new passenger station,  the prospects of the city   were  never brighter than they are at  present' .;.-. .���'. - ��� . -���-,;������..���  The expenditure to be made by  the   Canadian   Pacific   Railway  Cbriipany will alonernean the.employment, of a large number of  trained workmen.   The Bank of  Montreal:   will   expend    thirty  thousand    dollars    in' erecting  handsome offices here, and quarters for their staff of officers.   A  hotel to cost thirty thousand dol-  lars.is projected.    The city will  expend seventy thousand dollars  upon the installation of a water-  wprks.and- electric light system  iandystreet improvements.    The  various "coal mining   companies  will shortly increase, their staffs  of employees.    The construction  of a ten thousand dollar city hall  will commence, in a few jweeks.  And lastly;'butnot*least, itis expected that, in-a short time the  Kettle. Valfey iKailway "company  will undertake" further construe  tion from this end.of the line  and the old aldermanie board is  eliminated. St. Johns is rapidly  expanding.into one of the greatest cities of the Dominion, it being an open port all the year  round and amanufacfuring centre, and it is an excellent testimonial to Mr. Fisher's ability that  he is to be elected mayor bv acclamation, April 11th. He is conr  sidered one of the brightest business men in Eastern Canada.  LARGE NUMBERS  AT BANQUET  RAILWAY SPUR  It is expected that in the course  of a week construction of a spur  from the mainline of the C.P.R.  into the yards of the Vancouver Lumber Company and  the Merritt Lumber Yard .will be  commenced. Ties are already oh  the ground and the grade surveyed.  OPENS NEW STORE  Early this week N. J. Barwick  commenced the renovation of the  premises formerly occupied "by  Smith and Clark. The interior  of the store was repainted; and  kalspmined by R. J. McGregor.  In future this will be the harnes-  making department, Mr. Barwick utilizing his former "offices  for.his undertaking business. '   -  MINE ACCIDENTS  As though due to phenomenal  conditions prevalent; throughout  the continent the explosion in the  Diamond Vale mine was followed  within a comparitively few days  by explosions in Oklahama and  Virginia.' Since seven men perished here, two hundred have  been killed in a -similarrmanner  in the United States.

She  was removed to her son's residence at once and the doctor summoned. Mrs. Kay has been engaged in nursing her since her  illness and high hopes for her  speedy recovery are entertained.

PROSPECTORS BUSY  During the past few weeks  prospectors have been busy outfitting for the season at Granite  CreeklanTi=Princetb^ny=It^is=said  that there will be more prospectors travelling through the Similkameen this summer than at  any time since the big boom.  bought and sold, in short every  thing will be lively. '  In regard to the proposed electric lighting, waterworks and  street improvement schemes the  most agreeable part of these projects is the permanency of their  effects. Already quite a large  number of outside residents of  the valley have made purchases  of acreage with a view to settlement here as soon as water and  light are available.  The signal victory of British  Columbia potatoes in competition  with varieties grown all over the  continent, at the exhibition in  New York recently, means that  there will be a great demand for  potatoes, and nowhere in the  province may this vegetable   be  seventy six men affected by this  order. Itwill.be interesting to  note whether or not the "use' of  troops will become necessary.  CITY DEBENTURES  During the week the debentures for the fire and city hall issue were received from Aemilius  Jarvis and Co., of Toronto, who  were successful bidders for the  issue. Mayor Reid was busy  yesterday signing the interest  coupons, and as soon as the bonds  are returned to Toronto the  money will be placed at the city's  credit by the bond house.  COLLETTVILLE BRIDGE  Active construction of ' the  bridge over the Coldwater River,  which �� hen completed will be a  shortcut for people travelling  from this city to Collettville, is  being pushed by Dan Sutherland  government road superintendent.  cultivated^with such success/ as  in the Nicola Valley and particularly in the immediate vicinity  of Merritt. Many people will  undertake the cultivation of this  vegetable this summer, and the  assurance of a certain supply of  water will undoubtedly lead to  the settlement of many small  gardeners within the city limits.  Poultry farming is especially  suitable for this climate and  within reasonable distance of the  centre of the city are many  splendid farm sites, exceedingly  well adapted to this purpose.  It is the recognition of the  security of the foundation .upon  which the city of Merritt rests  that has led to settlement here  and the indications are that the  pioneers' foresight will be justified this summer.  I  WON'T   WORK  i    It is said that   the   Industrial  Workers of the World propose _to  move to Mexico and set up ajtiew  republic.     If it were not for the  international   complications  which might arise, we could wish  that they would do so,"'���-. in order  that the' rest of mankind could  see what   sort   of  a   job   they  could make of it.: The chances  are that they would find" it much  easier to talk of governing than  to govern.    .  rosy predictions=6f a: successful  year in 1912 were voiced.     ���'���'  G.

Fisher is an unopposed candidate  for mayor of St... John's N.-./B.,  St. Johns recently adopted the  commission form of government,  under which the civic affairs are  conducted'by five commissioners  of which the mayor is the chief.  The commissioners devote their  entire time to municipal business  BIG ACCOUNT LIST  The city council, on. Monday,  night passed accounts aggregating $2000. Part of the -amount  went for salaries and about $950  for the equipment for the scavenging department.  NEW. C. P. R. STATION  Plans for the new station to be  erected here by the C.P.R. have  been in the hands of Mr. Puffer  the local agent, for the past few  weeks. They show a handsome  two-storey building, with a platform five hundred feet in length.  Two waiting rooms   are   provided, one for ladies, arid one for  gentlemen.    In addition to this  there is   an   express   and light  freight office arid accomodations  are also provided for the  agent  arid his family, the   upper  floor  being devoted toi their'use.   The  general design is similar to that  st Nicola : though   on   a   larger  scale.    It is probable, however,  that before the contract for  the  building is let   further   changes  that will- make.it somewhat lar-:  ger than at present proposed may'',  be decided upon, as the company  have already increased ,,the, amount appropriated for the work  CAPTAIN FORSTER HONORED  Captain H.'F. Forster.  of Nicola, returned on ^Tuesday evening from the   Cavalry School  of  Instruction at Winnipeg.    While'  there he was very popular with  officers and men, with the result  that upon the eve of his departure  ho was .presented,   after  mess.  with a.han.dsome pair of silver-  mounted   spurs. ,  This   tribute  was the more appreciated,, as: it  was totally unexpected.

Speaking of the tragic death of  Major Husband, of Vernon,' Captain Forster mentions .-.that  he.  had passed all his 'examinations  and was to have returned to his"  home, but asked for a .last ride  with the rest.   Captain   Forster  was in charge of the ride on the  fatal   day.     Major   Husband's  horse slipped on the   car  tracks  and threw him on the pavement  -gashing his skull above the eye.  He was quickly   removed  to  a  tramcar  for. transportation   to  barracks and as soon as he .got  on the car became delirious. ,-A.I _;  the officers were at his bedside   ���  when he passed away   VACHON TO LYTTON  Provincial   Constable    Edgar  Vachon, of   this   city,   received  telegraphic instructions yesterday to proceed at once to Lytton.'.

No one will for a moment doubt  the wisdom of installing an electric lighting system, owned and  controlled by the people here.  Not only from the point of illumination of the public highways,  but in the more far-reaching effect upon the growth of the city  as a result of the consequent advertising the city would receive  from those who pay a visit to a  well lighted town the proposal to  instal a-municipal lighting plant  is of great importance and should  receive the approval of the ratepayers.  How much more necessary then  is an efficient waterworks system.  At present the business people  of the city are subscribing the  salary of a nightwatchman to give  warning of incipient blazes.  That is at best a palliative measure, because even though he  should be able to detect a blaze  it is extremely doubtful whether  or not the present facilities would  make it possible to quench afire  of any size. Certainly if there  should be a strong breeze blowing when there is a fire in the  centre of the city it would be  merely a question of salvaging  whatever possible before the  flames consumed nearly everything..   ,.  Itis proposed to instal a waterworks system by which hydrants  will be jplaced at reasonable intervals throughout the entire city,  and thus it willbe possible"to secure good .pressure at all times.  The peppie-jriave already voted  the money necessary for the purchase of -suitable fire fighting  equipment. It now remains for  them to apprpye a bylaw by which  water can be supplied at all  houis,  .;  ate and the enterprises which  the new lines, of transportation  will bring into existence. Thus  we have in sight as the direct  consequence of railway construction within the province an expenditure which is certain to exceed $250,000,000 and may easily  reach $300,000,000, most of  which will be made in the next  five years and all within the next  seven years at the most, unless  unforeseen contingencies arise.

LOUIS H. WEBER  R. Z. Chandler, Agent.  January 31st, 1912 8-12  LOOKING ;AHEAD  The next five years apparently will be the great railway era  in British Columbia. The programme of the provincial government, disclosed and in contemplation, will ensure the construction of a great railway mileage and the consequent expenditure of very.large sums of money in work and materials. We  look for' the completion of at  least 3000 miles within the period named, and the inception and  ���of-a^TOOff  are  possible completion  miles more.   These  500  525  100  300- 925  500  240  500  325  a  figures  arrived at in the following man  ner,  Construction now in sight:  Canadian Pacific Miles.

Total    ....'....: ������  Probable construction:  Bute Inlet Railway.' ...  ���  Railway to Peace River.........  Total        - "  The probability   is   that   this  mileage is under-estimated rather  than over-estimated.    It will call  for the enormous   outlay   of   at  least $160,000,000, to which   we  may safely add another $100,000,  000   for   work   which   will    be  brought about as the  result  of  the construction   of  these   railway s.    In this we   include   the  establishment of terminal facilities, the building of towns,   the  construction  of    public . works  which the railways will necessit-  3000  550  450  1000  THE PEACE RIVER LANDS  The Vancouver Sun says that  the  Dominion  Government will  consider during the recess   the  propriety   of   handing   back to  this pi-ovince the 3,500,000 acres  of land in the Peace River country selected by the late Government in persuance of the terms  of the Settlement Act of 1884.  We shall be  very .glad if this  proves to be the case, and shall  be even more pleased if the government decides to hand over this  area to the province.    As many  new-comers   may be unfamiliar  with the facts of the case, it may  be mentioned that the province  agreed in 1884 to give the present  E. & N, land grant to the Dominion to secure the construction  of a railway on the Island, also  the railway belt, namely, a strip  forty miles wide across the province, along the route of the Canadian Pacific, and 3,500,000 acres  in the Peace Eiver Country to be  selected by the Dominion  Government in aid of the transcontinental   railway.     The   railway  belt and the Peace River land was  to belong to the Dominion.    No  selection of the latter area was  made until a few years ago, when  Mr. Oliver, Minister of the Interior, sent out surveyors and select  ed a rectangular block on both  sides of the Peace and immediately adjoining the eastern boundary  of the province.  It has always seemed to the  Colonist very unjust that this  land should belong to the Dominion and that the cost of opening  it up with roads, the erection of  the necessary public buildings  and the maintenance of schools  should be paid for by the province, and we have urged for many  years that the Dominion should  surrender its claim. ���Colonist.

Apl. 3rd,���The  first step toward a. stoppa.ee in  coal production in the United  States, as a result of wage disputes was taken on Friday, when  the miners' union ordered 170;000  miners in the anthracite region  of Pennsylvania to quit work  last Sunday at midnight.  The suspension was ordered  because of the operators refusing  to grant the union demands for  increased pay.       ���-  The shutting down of the  mines, the union officials say,  will cause a loss in the coal production of the country of 7,013,  000 tons of anthracite a month  and will entail a loss in pay to  the miners of not less than $350,  000 a day.  Measures to induce miners and  operators to renew negotiations,  broken off in New York "several  weeks ago,are talked of.  Settlement of the bituminous  coal miners' wage dispute on a.  basis satisfactory-to both . sides  was announced late on Friday  night as having been virtually  arranged.  The order  PREMIER'S THANKS FOR VICTORY  "The government will more  than ever realize its responsibilities to the people of the province.  The victory which the Conservative party has achieved is a victory for the future of the province  for the government will now go  on with the larger issues that are  but now dimly dreamt of in regard to the development and  prosperity of the province. In  the past we have labored with  many handicaps and we have so  far been enormously successful.  That we will continue to beso is  my greatest hope, especially in  view of the magnificent attitude  of the people whom we represent  in parliament.  ' 'From now on British Columbia will fprgd ahead as she has  never done before.

CHANGED HIS MIND  A story is told of Phillip Sutton,  a Skeena river Indian,  who was  left to take care of the services  while   the  regular   pastor   was  away.    On Sunday night Phillip  was conducting the service when  the gasoline   lights   went   low.  While the congregation were singing Phillip went out with the lamp  to see what was wrong.   He stuck  the lamp in the box with the gasoline tank and in an instant Phillip started on his way to heaven.  As he passed the church windows  he saw Rachel weeping and he  changed his mind and   started  down for the other place, but the  ground was frozen and as a result  of his sudden contact with terra  firma his knee was knocked out  of joint, his wrist was sprained  and the hair was all scraped off  his face.    He is now just able to  be around.���Omineca Herald.

If  you make the bottom of the feet properly with a piece of card  board inside, according to directions, these dolls will stand by themselves. It will only take a few minutes of some older person's time  to make up one of these dolls either on the sewing machine or by  hand, if the instructions are followed carefully, and it will give  many hours of pleasure to your little one.

Notes by a Looker-on.  These two teams lined up at  Middlesboro last Sunday for a  practice game.  Neil played an excellent game  in goal for the Blues.-  At half-time two goals in favor of the Blues. So they were  the attacking party all through  the first. After the kick-off a  good run resulted in D. Brown  notching a goal for the Reds.  Beavers secured another one  which the writer believes should  not have been counted. Another  run resulted in Weaver scoring  another from a beautiful shot.  A good game was ended which  with even moderate luck, should  have been a draw.  Result:��� Reds, 3; Blues, 2.

Apl, ,3rd.���Seven  thousand wildly excited spectators saw the Western All-Stars  vanquish their Eastern hockey  rivals in the local arena last  night by the<.overwhelming score  of ten goala to four. It was one  of the greatest hockey struggles  that the game has ever seen.

In every period the  Western team outscored the visitors and in the final session placed four sizzling shots past "Paddy" Moran which the veteran  Quebec guardian failed to see.  The real hero of the game was  "Hughie" Lehman. To the former Berlin boy must be given the  credit, if not entirely for the victory, for the few goals gegister-  by the Easterners.  "Never in my-career have I  seen sucti stops," is the way Captain, 'Art?
