Specialists in      "~'\ ,  Men's Clothing, Furnishings, Boots and  Shoes.  Joe Coutlee, Well Known Cowboy,  Has Narrow Escape.  When Joe Coutlie lef t Joseph  Collett, with whom he had been  talking, last Saturday night and  started to go home he went  along Quilchena avenue, from  the Coldwater hotel. Opposite  Armstrong's departmental store  he was attacked by two Indians,  one mounted and the other  springing up behind him on the  saddle and pinioning his arms to  his sides, and stabbed ten times.  Several eye witnesses tb the  scene heard his cry for help,  but thought that someone was  trying to get a bottle of whisky  from him and paid little attention, merely walking over to the  scene. An automobile coming  along almost simultaneously with  his muffled call for the police the  light was turned -. up the street  and his assilants made off. His  horse bolted up the street a short  distance and then Coutlie got  him under control and brought  him back to the front of J. A.  Maughan's office. He called out  that he had heen stabbed by  some Indians and immediately  James Simpson and Mr. Maughan  came over to him. His chest,  back and arms were bleeding  profusely and his clothes were  saturated with blood. Constable  Smith was summoned and removed him to the hospital where  it was found that he had been  severely stabbed. The^ worst  stab of all was in the middle of  the back which penetrated about  two and a half .inches. Dr.  Williams dressed' the wounds  and he seemed little the worse  for his experience. Chief Strang  and Provincial Constables Vachon and McNeill were hastily summoned and a search of the locality revealed where the horses  of his assailants, one of which  was shod in front and'not behind, had gone when the assailants were making their escape.  on  the  side-  had jumped  Blood was found  walk where they  their horses across.  Albert Wilson and Tnomas  Bryden drove down to the Nicola river bridge;on the former's  car, where'wthe same hoof marks  were found. They concluded  the Indians had headed back towards Quilchena.  Chief Strang proceeded towards the Lumlum Lakes and at  the reserve near the Hamilton  Hill found Johnny Harper, Jimmy Charters and George Shuttleworth. As Shuttleworth said  he thought the Indians had gone  towards Chulus he locked up the  other two and started down  there accompanied by Shuttle-  worth.  Meanwhile Wilson and Bryden  were heading for Quilchena.  When about a. mile and a half  from that place they met Edward Sheena battering his horse,  which had collapsed, about the  head. They noticed blood on the  saddle and took Sheena along  with them to Quilchena, where  they aroused Joseph Guichon.  A further search there and they  found Frank Joseph, and in company with Charles Douglas  started for this city with their  prisoners, arriving here about  seven o'clock oh Sunday morning and turning them over to  Special Constable John Garroch,  whe locked them up.  On the way down in the car  the Indians talked freely and  told how they had knifed Coutlee. It appears that they had  asked him for whisky and being  refused Sheena had jumped behind him and ���held him while  Joseph stabbed. But for the  auto light they would have completed their v-work. All Coutlee  can remember Vvas being asked  for whisky and then feeling a  pain like hot , needles being  thrust into him.J^_. ,,..-_  -, -._._..._-_.  On Wednesday morning they  were arranged before Magistrate  Morgan, who, after hearing the  evidence, committed them for  trial. Mr. Grirhmett appeared  for the Crown while the accused  were unrepresented by counsel.  Mr. Maughan has retained counsel for them for their trial at  Kamloops.

M.  this week a Swede by the name  of Peterson was sentenced to six  months in Kamloops for resisting  arrest.    When arrested on suspicion of having been the mis-  i creant who fired   at   Constable  Smith last Thursday evening he  vehemently asserted that he had  done so and expressed regret at  his failure to kill his quarry. He  was drunk when  arrested and  put up such a strenuous fight that  it   required five men to handle  him.    He bit Chief Strang in the  arm and on the hand and finally  had to-be legrironed.    Whenjhe  was put into his cell he battered  his head against the walls for  some time.   When sober and arraigned on Tuesday he said that  he had only boasted about shooting at Constable Smith, having  read of that incident in the paper.  As he seemed slightly crazy anyhow   he   was   sent   up   for six  months in  which to think  the  matter over.   o-  A CAMBRIDGE BLUE  M. Heyland, who arrived in the  valley during the week accompanied by his brother F. Heyland  and Lieutenant Heyland, rowed  No 4 in the Cambridge boat in  the recent contest with Oxford,  when both boats were flooded.  He and his brothers aie, the  guests of Captain Leader and  with Mr. Guy Pearson, who arrived here with them, expect to  make their future home here.  !.  ��� <��������  LIGHTING PLANT  The tenders for the installation  of an electric lighting plant will  be dealt v> ith at a special meeting  of the ci y c >un il next Tuesday  night,  Skuarniskein, Well  Known Hunter  and   Trapper   Done   to  Death at Reserve  News of the murder of Squam-  iskein, one of the best known  and liked of the Indians of the  Chulus reserve was received here  at five o'clock last Sunday morning by Provincial Constable  Vachon. The information was  brought here by Chief Tom Peter,  who was greatly excited over the  tragedy. In company with Special Constable McNeill, Vachon  proceeded to the reserve immediately and arrested George Tood-  lakein, a young Indian twenty  four years old and charged him  with the crime. Toodlakein came  along quite willingly. When arrested he was busily occupied in  finishing a bottle of liniment in a  hayfield. Dr. Tutill was immediately summoned and after examination pronounced Squamiskein  beyond all need of medical aid.  He then devoted his attention to  dressing the wounds of Toodlake-  in's wife, whom Toodlakein is alleged to have severely battered  about the head and arms when  trying to get at Squamskein again.  According to Chief Tom Peter  Toodlakein and Squamiskein had  been drinking liniment together  late Saturday-evening and had a  quarrel.r- Toodlakein was removed to the local provincial jail and  warned, when - arrested, that  anything he said would be used  against him. On the way up he  was quite cheerful,- but did not  discuss the. alleged crime. He  asked what kind of a celebration  there would be at Nicola on the  1st of July and being told that  there, .-w.ojild,. be; :polq. -and-races,  said that those things had no  further interest for him now.  Dr. Tutill convened a coroner's  jury early on Sunday morning  of which the following were  members: H. S. Cleasby, J. H.  Collett, M. Woodward, J. Marshall, T. A. Williams and J. Taylor. These heard the evidence  of the witnesses of the affair and  adjourned until Tuesday morning when they brought in the  verkict given below.  In view of the fact that the  guilt or innocence of Toodlakein  is still undecided the details of  the evidence against him are not  published.  He will come up for preliminary hearing before Stipendiary  Morgan in this city next Tuesday morning at ten o'clock.  Following is the verdict of the  coroner's jury:  We your jury impanelled to inquire into the death of Squaini-  skon (Indian) who came to his  death at the Springs on Naik  Indian Reserve about three a.m.  pnJ3unday, June 23, 1912.    Find  WATER RIGHTS  Trouble over a dam in Aspen  Grove culminated last Wednesday in the appearance of Captain  Turner, D. S. O., and F. W.  Crowder, both ranchers of that  section, before W. N. Rolfe,  government agent and magistrate at Nicola. Mr. Maughan  appeared for the complainant,  the captain, and M. L. Grimmett,  LI. B., for the defendant. It  appears that there has been a  dispute for some time past in the  matter of the right of Captain  Turner to put a dam in byCrow-  ner's property, the latter denying this right. Finally he tore  up the* dam, as a result of which  Captain Turner took action. Ii  was shown that the water record  gave the right to put in a dam  so Mr. Rolfe gave a verdict for  the captain and Mr. Crowder was  forced to pay the costs of the  case. This case is the first of  its kind for some years.  SPORTS AT NICOLA  At Nicola on Monday, July 1,  a splendid programme of athletic  sports have been arranged, and  good prizes in all events are offered. The failure to have had  these'sports advertised with the  programme of the races for that  day, will possibly keep a few  from taking part in them, as  other plans . have been made,  but those who attend, children  as well as grow-ups are assured  of a good time. It might be stated that the athletic sports are  all held in the morning and those  taking part, if they so wish,  will have plenty of time to get  the train and take in the big  picnic. at Lower Nicola in the  afternoon. The horse races are  expected to attract large crowds  as already a large list of entries  are assured. The polo match in  the morning- will be a big* novel  drawing card.  Crew at Work Preparatory to Con-,  struction of Kettle Valley.  A crew has been put at work  brushing out right of way from,  the loop up the Coldwater to the  summit of the Coquahalla. More  men would be put. to work every  day if they could be found.  Engineer Seymour's party is  now down to within a mile and  a half of the loop, having com-  oleted the work from the Coquahalla end. When the connection is made with the completed section of ihe' mad his  party will work down the Coquahalla into Hope.  The crew who are   re-opening  the ro:id for ballasting  are.   now  up to Del King's place and' it is  expected that ballasting ' can   be -  begun in a short, time.

Bourne, of Dutcher,  Maxwell & Co., who are engineers for the installation of the  waterworks and electric lighting  plant, arrived here last evening  from Vancouver and will be stationed here until the works are  completed. The contract for the  water mains has been awarded  to Robertson & Godson, of Vancouver and a shipment of pipes  is already en route here.  ������������o-  TRAVIS-CUMMINGS'  At St. Andrew's Presbyterian  Church at eight, o'clock last Saturday morning Rev J. A. Petrie  solemnized the marriage of Miss  Hetty Travis, of Manchester,  England,-to James Cummings, of  Canford. The witnesses were  Mr. and Mrs. A. C. Falconer and  Mr. Cummings Sr. After the  ceremony a wedding breakfast  was served in the Star restaurant  at which the usual toasts were  honoured.' The happy couple left  in the afternoon train for Canford where they will make their  future home. ���      '--.  - -.. ^^MR^SWEENEY-HERE-----.-  Campbell Sweeney, general-  superintendent of branches for  the Bank of Montreal.'"in this  province, paid a flying visit to  this city during . the week-end..

P., accompanied by Dan  Sutherland, road supervisor for  the district, paid a flying visit to  the valley. The Merritt and  Nicola Valley Boards of Trade  representatives discussed the  proposed transcontinental road  with him before he left.  ISOMrs. J. Leach, who has been  staying for some time with her  sister, Mrs. Kerr, left on Tuesday for Winnipeg, being summoned away hastily by a death  in her family.  GUN CLUB  G. F. Harrison, accompanied  by his wife and infant daughter  left today for Vancouver where he  will enter the tournament of  trapshooters as the representative of the local club. Last  Thursday evening there was  some shooting for the trophy and  only two turned out, Harrisson  and Fowler, the former breaking  22^t^r25WdltKriatteF21^^  VISITS SON  A. Mclntyre, and John Mclntyre and wife and child, father  and brother respectively of Murdock Mclntyre are visiting him  for a few weeks. They came  here from Sidney Mines, C. B.  during the week.  VISITED SUMMIT  Sid Mearon and Frank Barnes  returned from a trip to the Coquahalla Summit during the week.  They were away about six days  and greatly benefited by their  experience. They report the  fishing excellent at Coquahalla  Lake. They caught four hundred trout in a few days.  SPEND SUMMER HERE  Captain G. Bate, of Vancouver  Island, formerly a resident of the  valley arrived at Nicola on Tuesday evening on a brief visit. He  expects to spend a month in the  valley and will visit the Aspen  Grove section before returning to  the coast.  SCHOOL DAYS  The local school broke up for  the annual summer vacation today. When the school term reopens in the fall it is expected  that there will be - numerous  changes in the local staff. At  present, however, nothing definite is known as to what changes  are contemplated.       ��  SIDEWALK   CONSTRUCTION  Fowler and Larson are making  rapid progress with the construction of sidewalks in the city and  it is expected that the work will  be completed well within the  contract time.  "  GOOD DEPOSIT  OF COPPER ORE  What may prove to be a very  important deposit of copper ore  has been discovered by George  Bourgois and William Winslow,  twelve miles north of Lyttton.  According to Mr. Arthur Cowing, who has just returned from  the property, it has all the ear  marks of a mine. Mr. Gowing  who made a thorough examination of the property, reports that  the new find is of more than  common interest, being traceable  for a distance of at least a mile  and showing an extremely high  grade of copper ore. But little  work has been done, but sufficient values are in sight to warrant a thorough exploitation of  the property. Two feet of grey  copper have been exposed in a  lead the width of which has not  yet been determined. The owners have obtained assays as high  as $47 per ton, and claim that  the samples assayed were obtained outside of the high grade  streak.  The new discovery is only two  miles from the Fraser river, and  within easy reach of Lytton by  one of the best wagon roads in  the province. . ��� -- -��� mr\w^rm\l����i!wjir~���� ��� JC^Ir��l'?MM,i*>i���_������!>*< �����!>_ Jini uunr. __!___--_____-- ���  j^gg^_^ygj_^^^ia__ir|<Ya;:iiw  THE NICOLA  VALLEY NEWS  Friday.

ELLIS      -     -     -     -  in   advance  will be very costly  to maintain.  Self interest will be a factor  in the degree of insistency which  the proposed delegation will  manifest at the coast. But it  should be borne in mind that  towns which are not all affected  by the linking up of Hope and  Spence's Bridge are lending a  hand in the furtherance of the  project. It is not really a local  issue, or even provincial; it is a  national undertaking which is  affected. The b st route ior the  transcontinental highway, according to Maxwell Clarke, who  ihas made it his sole business to  study out the matter thoroughly,  iis via Hope, Spence's Bridge, the  Nicola valley, through Aspen  Grove to the Similkameen. If  this route is followed there will  be a route for travel by team or  automobile at all seasons of the  year. On the other hand the  construction of a road up the Coquahalla opens a highway which  in bad seasons may only be  available for three months.  Still another factor in favor of  the route suggested by Mr.  Clarke is the saving iri cost. The  road up the Coquahalla will cost  about three hundred thousand  dollars, while the link between  Spence's Bridge would require  an expenditure of a quarter of  that amount.  Still another argument which  may be advanced in favour of  the Hope-Spence's Bridge link is  that instead of being entirely  extraneous to the appropriations  for work in Yale, as in the case  of the Coquahalla road, the construction of the link would supplement the appropriations for  the mainline work.  Finally, the Coquahalla road  traverses an unsettled valley,  while the alternative road passes  through a picturesque route in a  well populated district.  Manager  way, recently announced that  King George had "left England  for the continent to avoid meeting Winston Churchill, with  whom he had. quarrelled!" We  conclude that it required a mental  convulsion for the editor to conjure up an unseemly indignation  against an imaginary type, and  we trust that by 'the time this  appears he will have returned to  normal health again.  As for the "remittance men"  who have so aroused his indignation, we greatly fear that the  crime of that type lies in the  gentility of its members. No  doubt the editor much prefers  the guttural oaths of illiteracy to  the constrained expressions of  surprise to_ which gentlemen give  play.  In conclusion, and apologising  again for dealing with what  many may consider an unnecessary subject, we would express  the conviction that those English gentlemen who are contemplating settlement in the Nicola  and Tulameen valleys will receive a hearty welcome from all  who are familiar with the country���who will do everything to  assist them in understanding the  ' conditions of their new life.  English, Irish, Scotch and Welsh  settlers are a source of strength  to any community. We welcome  you gentlmen and trust that you  will meet the full success you  anticipate in your new field.

TRANSCONTINENTAL HIGHWAY  Following the visit of Maxwell  Clarke,   travelling secretary of  the  Canadian  Highway Association, the Board of Trade, many  members of which  have become  members in the  Canadian Highway Association, 3ent out a call  to towns along the mainline and  =through=the=valley=to^organize=a  delegation to visit Victoria and  urge upon the Provincial government the necessity for completing the road between  Hope and  Spence's Bridge and thus  linking up the coast with the interior via the Nicola Valley.   These  delegates will constitute another  sub-association.  At   present   the   government  propose  to pay part of the cost  to make the proposed  the   Coquahalla    river,    thence  down the Otter to Princeton, the  main transcontinental  highway.  There are many   strong   arguments against the  use of this  proposed  road  for such a purpose,   the principal perhaps being the fact that it will be impassible for eight months out of  every year;  while  on the other  hand, by the construction of the  link between Hope and Spence's  Bridge a transcontinental highway which would be open almost  the entire year could  be obtained.    Of course the  road up the  Coquhalla must  be  built   some  time :or other;  but the amount  which  it  is proposed to expend  immediately upon that link may  be    regarded    as    temporarily  wasted, for there  will  certainly  be   no ; trafficvovietfi it* for some  years to come, and in addition it  ANONYMITY  In the issue of the Coalmont  Courier of the date of June 17th  there appears a letter, evidently  written by someone in Merritt,  in which the writer, who hides  himself under the anonymity of a  "long dash"���obviously being  too cowardly to be recognized  publicly as the author of such an  epistle���has some remarks to  make upon the subject of the  English settlers (officers and others) who are settling in the Nicola Valley. These this gentleman (?) of the dark alleyways  refers to as belonging to the  ' 'Haw! Haw!"By Jove! class. "X  After referring to the puerile  diatribes of the Courier������which  has earned itself the unique distinction (?) of discovering that  the remittance man and English  gentlemen are undesirable citizens and concurring cordially  in the sentiments of the editor  upon that subject, .the   author  proceeds  to   "agree���that Tulameen does not want any of the  Haw, Haw, By Jove class of settlers, that some English syndicate  is floating in that neighborhood."  He then proceeds to indulge in  a few slurs upon those who believe in the potentialities of the  Nicola   Valley,    and    concludes  with the expressed hope that he  will have the pleasure of reading  ,_a_lengthy_editorialJn your_next  issue on this matter".     In the  editor's footnote the anonymous  communication is refrrred to as  from one of the "biggest boosters of the Nicola Valley," and a  hard-headed business man,  and  one who knows whereof he speaks  iand, with a curious irony, the editor adds,  "The letter needs no  further comment from us."  But for the fact that settlers  road up lare likely to accept the sentim-  'ents of the editor of the Courier  as reflecting the opinion of the  community    we    would   ignore  this ungrammaticalcommuniation  and leave it and its author, to the  darkness in which it first appeared.  It required a weird stretch of  imagination for either the editor  of the Courier or his anonymous  friend to discover the existence  of a "Haw! Haw! By Jove!"  type of Englishman settling in  the valleys of the Nicola and the  Similkameen. Though we may  modestly claim to have travelled  somewhat extensively we. must  confess that the existence of  the Englishman who says "Haw!  Haw! By Jove!" is confined, so  far as we have been able to see,  to the allegedly comic supplements of the American Sunday  papers���one of which,   by   the,  The Dominion government  have made a reduction in the  amount of land to be cleared by  the new homesteader in the  West if the quarter section is  stony or heavily wooded. A further concession is that only upon purchased homesteads will it  be required that a $300 house be  built. On all others a habitable  house is all that is necessary.  The rush to the Peace River district still keeps on, according to  reports from Edmonton. Already  this month $40,000 has been paid  into the Edmonton office in timber, mines and homestead dues.  Large numbers of permits have  also been issued from the same  office for the cutting of ties for  the new Alberta Central railroad.  Don't forget the picnic at  Lower Nicola on Monday, July  1st.

GRAIN BLOCKADE  Montreal, June 26. ��� One of the  most serious propositions which  the port of Montreal has faced in  the history of its existence is the  grain blockade now existent.  The blockade is the worst ever  experienced and is attributed directly to the London dock workers  strike. The Grand Trunk elevator and the elevator of the harbor commissioners are both filled  to the limit of their capacity, and  there are not enough ships to relieve them of the grain stored in  them. There is no outlet, but  through the inlet.  There are at the present time  five large freighters lying in the  harbor. So full are the elevators  that they can do no more work.  The sight of a couple of floating  elevators alongside the Tunisian  and Canada alone indicate the  trouble, for it is seldom that the  ships take on what is known as  "floating grain," that is, take on  grain directly from lake steamers  by the aid of small floating elevators. This is being done in both  cases cited.  r FERRY BREAKS LOOSE  The ferry-scow at Yale, which  is worked by means of a great  wire rope stretching from bank  to   bank.,   unexpectedly   broke  Dr. C. Gordon Hewitt, Dominion Entomologist, says,  referring to the infantile death rate  from intestinal diseases and diarrhoea  spread by the house fly, he believes  that the so-called harmless fly is yearly-  causing the death of thousands of  infants, .as well as spreading the  germs of typhoid fever.  FLY PADS  are the best thing to rid your house  of these dangerous pests.  B. C.-A RICH HUNTING GROUND  The Hope mountains have long  been known to the few big game  hunters of the province, but they  have not attracted the attention of  thespor:smenfromother lands for  the singular reason that the latter find it impossible to believe  that such sport can be had at a  distance of a mile or two from  the line of a transcontinental  railroad, and having travelled  thousands of miles to hunt grizzly  and mountain goat they prefer  going several hundred miles farther into the wilderness.  But the trappers and prospectors, whose business is '*\ the  mountains, know that K , Ogilvy and the Eur^l v ' .^ ins  are still the hon ,. oi ima.. ���oats  and deer in abundance. Further  south in the Skagit river, valley,  the deer have suffered seriously  from the depredations of Indians  from the Nicola valley, but it is  hoped, by the appointment of a  sufficient number of game wardens, to check their activities and  preserve the game.  Black and grizzly bears are  still very numerous. They are  met on the trails. During the  rush to Steamboat mountain a  year ago, there were few of the  gold seekers who did not report  seeing bear tracks and many  caught sight of the animals themselves. The vicinity of the Lake  House, near the 14-mile post,  which is at the summit of the  divide between Coquahalla and  the Skagit, the highest point on  the first half of the Similkameen  trail, bears have always been  numerous and are still.  Hope mountain, which rises  over 5000 feet above the river,  the ascent beginning almost at  the southern limits of the town,  is still the haunt of the mountain  goat, although these animals are  reported as rarely seen now in  other inhabited parts of the province.  Ogilvy mountain, east of the  Coquahalla and across the Kaw-  kawa lakes, is far less frequently  visited than Hope mountains,  and its northeastern slopes are  almost unknown. Deer, bear  and goats have all been hunted  there successfully.  To the west rise Holy Cross  mountain and the Eureka peaks.  They are higher than Hope or  Ogilvy and afford shelter for  goats with almost absolute security. ���,;  THE  HOTEL,  QUILCHENA AVENUE  Newly established throughout.
