Limited  /*-.  �� : Specialists  in  �����:iW  Men's Clothing, Furnishings, Boots afnd Shoes.  Passes Away  in  General Hospital  After Very Short Illness  It is with deep regret that we  have to chronicle the sudden  death of Mrs. Matthews of Lake  View ranch, Nicola which occurred at the General Hoapital early  on Monday last. To Major Matthews and the immediate relatives of the deceased, The News  extends sincerest sympathy.  It is only a few days since that  the writer had  been hospitably  entertained by the deceased on  her lawn at Lake View and  the  news of her sudden death  came  as a terrible shock.  !    Seldom, if ever, in the history  ,of   the   Nicola   Valley have so^ney,  many people congregated to attend the last solemn rites of the  Church of England as  were assembled at the funeral obsequies  of the late Mrs. Harold Matthews.  The cortege left Lake View at  half past two in  the afternoon  and   proceeded    to   St.   John's  church for   the   funeral service.  Inside  the  church flowers were  banked high around   the   coffin  giving ample evidence of the affection and respect in which the  deceased lady was held throughout the Nicola Valley and adjacent districts.   The Rev.  James  Thompson  read the impressive  service  of the   English Church  and   the   following   appropriate  hymns.were sung by a congregation   which   filled   the   church:  "The radiant morn hath passed  away" and "On the resurrection  morning''.^ It was a deeply pathetic as weH as impressive sight  as the long funeral train wound  its way;. to the pretty cemetery  by the'lakeside for the youth and  age of the valley had come to  hear, the sad but hopeful words  spoken ere tHe body 'was" laTcTln  its   last, earthly resting   place.  Blue   arid .scarlet   among   the  mourners betokened the presence  of members of the local militia  squadron  of which. Major Mat  thews is leader, who had come  to bid farewell to one who had  always taken a keen interest in"  her husband's squadron. Every  fraternal society, every organization, secular or religious, in the  valley had sent or brought floral  tributes of respect, so much that  [ the grave was hidden in a bank  of flowers. &-'7---~  The late Mrs. Matthews was a  daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Riley  of Nicola and was born in the  valley and the sympathy of all  will go out to the aged couple  who on Wednesday last followed  their daughter to the grave.  Among the mourners were  A.  E. Howse S, Kirby,  T.   Heslop,  F. Jackson, A. Jackson, M. L.  Grimmett, Rev. Pye.tA. Goodisson, S. J. Solomon. R: Clark, G.  Murray, J. Murray, J. Potter, A.

Inside Lots 50x120  Inland Coal and Coke' Co., Make  Large   Improvements  Tenaeity! It is a little over two  years now that Joseph Graham,  manager of the Inland Coal  &  Coke Co., has been working tooth  and nail day as  well as  night  to have the C. P. R.lay a short  spur into the tipple of their mine.  :Xwo,y.ears of. steady development  at their mine, two years of expensive hauling by team the coal  from the mine to  the spur running into the Nicola Valley Coal  & Coke Co's. property, but this  extra mile,   it was finally completed on  Wednesday and   the  first car of coal sent over it,  together with the memory of the  past eight years, eight long years  and at last he could- gaze   upon  the mine he located at the beginning of 1905 to see the big airial  tramway with the cars coming  slowly down to the tipple and the  man at the tipple was at last  able to pull a lever and load the  coal into the coal cars.  Who would wonder then that  to meet Mr. Graham after seeing  this first car of coal pass out of  sight over the new line headed  for the summit for use on the  K. V. line that a smile, and a  broad one at that was on his face.  At the mine the installation of  the new boiler as well as a large  Corner  a  50x120  you pay cash we will reduce these  prices 10 per cent.

Sam  Hughes  Promises  moury For Merritt  Lieut-Colonel C, L. Flick returned on Saturday from Calgary  whither he had accompanied the  Minister of Militia.  Colonel Flick reports that he  was satisfied with the result of  his trip and that mftny outstanding controversial matters between the 31st Regiment and Ottawa have been settled.  An armoury  for Merritt and  Salmon Arm are promised   for  next spring and either a new armoury or a substantial addition  to the existing one has been secured for Kamloops.   The range  at Kamloops is also to be put into good shape for Colonel Hughes  was decidedly impressed with the  energetic military spirit abroad  in Kamloops   and' the  adjacent  district.   The question of a permanent camping ground for British   Columbia   troops   was   also  brought up and Colonel Flick will  report upon certain areas direct  to Colonel Hughes.  While in Calgary Colonel Flick  discussed with Colonel Helmer,  Director of Musketry, the best  time in the year to hold schools  of instruction in B." C. As a result of this discussion a School  of Instruction will be held in Kamloops either this fall or during  the winter months, while Colonel  Helmer -will'-energetically take  up the matter of a central School  of Musketry to be held possibly  in Victoria. Officers and n-c-os  attending these schools will get  transportation and subsistence  from the government and those  that qualify will be entitled to  pay.  Members of several B. C. regiments were attending the School  of Musketry at Calgary the majority being school teachers and  n-c-os. .    -  It is to be regretted that none  among  the  school   teachers of  Kamloops and Merritt are willing  to come forward and take up the  cadet  movement,   many  school  trustees profess to see danger  emanating from the Cadet movement, to these we would point  out that the Canadian Militia is  not and never has been used for  agression it is iii existence purely for the defence of Canada and  that the cadet movement is  but  a means to further that end. Arrangement  for   an   escort   and  guard for H. R. H. the Governor  General are in abeyance owing  to the fact that all   ceremonial  from a provincial point of view  has to go through the hands of  the entourage of the Lieut-Governor.

Building Line Good  "There   is  more   work   than  good carpenters at  the  present  time"  said  Mr.   Fowler of the  contracting firm  of Fowler and  Larson to a News man  on Wednesday morning.    "We signed a  contract with the provincial government  on   Saturday   for   the  erection   of   the   Nicola   school  house  and  are to have it completed by the middle of September.    Monday we took  the contract for the erection  of a neat  little cottage for Mr. J. C. Brown  in j Collettville,   which  is  to  be  erected   at once.    At the  City  Hall, continued  Mr. Fowler, the  carpenters are right  up  to the  plasterers and the completion of  the new city offices and  fire hall  is  now  but a question  of how  fast the plasterers can go."  The outlook in the building  line generally is very encouraging and this fall promises to  eclipse all past records.  K. V. CONTRACT  AWARDED  Twohy  GREAT NORTHERN  TO LET GONTRACT  Coalmont to Summit to be completed by July 1st, 1913.  IfiMerritt was virtually alive this  week with railway men, contractors and surveyors.  The announcement that the  Great Northern was to let the  contract for the construction of  the V. V. & E. from Coalmont  to the summit of the Coquahalla  pass and the arrival here of Mr.  A. Kellett of the firm, of P.  Welch & Col, contractors, who  verified the repoit and also  stated that the bids for the construction of this 42 mil��s had to  be iri at the head office in St.  Paul by the 20th of this month.  The contract calls for the completion of the work by July 1st,  1913.   _  ';' If "the- dictSriP of "Louis"Hill?  then   president   of    the    Great  Bros.   Secure   Contract-  Work Starts  The contract for the last thirteen miles of the Kettle Valley  line from Coldwater Junction  to  j the Summitt of the Hope moun-  , tain was awarded to the contracting   firm   of   Twohy Bros.   last  week, and on Monday Mr. W, E.  Wilson  who will supervise the  construction  of this last lap in  the   Merritt  branch arrived   in  town and as soon as possible will  bring his family'here.  Construction is to start immediately in fact just as soon as the  construction outfits can be rushed  in and every possible minute will  count in its construction from  now until completion,  Just what number of riien will  be employed on construction on  this piece of work rests with the  contractors though it is Anticipated in well authorized circles  that there will be close onto one  thousand.  A commissary will be built at  Coldwater Junction the"erection  of which will start the first of  the week.  Although no specified time is  set for completion , of this thirteen miles Mr. Wilson stated that  six-months would see it finished.  A   despatch   from  Vancouver  says  that it is stated there on  good authority that the C. P. R.   '  has secured, an.; option, ^.expiring ,  on August 31, for  the purchase  of those  sections of. the Great  Northern system extending from  North port to;Risland and  from  Northport "to - Nelson,   the   two  roads being known  respectively  as the Rod  Mountain-and? the .  Nelson and Fort  Sheppard. Railway, i The lines in question were  rece^ly, inspected a  C.~ P. R.   official designated "for"'"'  the  task  by  President Shaugh-  Northern - railway,   on  his  visit.  here last spring is any criterion  nei,!y      A. . ,     ���  to go by, which  was "You have      Tth.e mot,ves of ��>e C,  the coal and tonnage here!' "We seek}ng  need coal and  plenty of it, and sectlons  we are also after tonnage" then  there can hardly be a doubt in the  minds of those who are familiar  with the workings  of the Great  Northern but that the line from  the summit into Merritt  will be  built next year.  Construction will in all probability start from both ends of  the road, namely Coalmont and  at the summit.  ASKa BIDS FOR  POWER HOUSE  Contracts  to  be  Awarded  Week  Next  P; R, in  to acquire   these short  are said to  be.in connection  with plans for making  one of them a link in  an alternative through  line to the coast  via the Kettle Valley 'line.   By  constructing a   new   road   connecting the Corbin line -with the  Nelson  & Fort Sheppard   easy  grades would be secured and the  transfer of through "freight to  boats on Kootenay Lake'would  be   avoided.     The   Corbin   line  connects with the C. P. R. system at Kingsgate on the boundary line in East Kootenay and is  controlled by the Canadian road.  The American Inrush  An influx of not less than half  a million Americans per annum  into Canada for the next five  years is the prediction being  freely circulated by w�� II informed authorities of .tho west in  vi��vv of recently announced i-ail-  way cons! rue. ion programmes  and development plans of the  leading western cities. The problem of housing ihe new population continues  a, serious  one in  view of the inrush.  Fourth Minister for the West  Ottawa, Aug.   15. ���It is  very  possible that next session an additional portfolio will be created  and the West will secure a fourth  minister.   It is understood that  strong influence is being brought  to bear by the mining interests  to have a Minister of Mines appointed.    Formerly the Department of Mines was under the  Minister    of    Inland  Revenue.  Last   session   this   branch  was  transferred to the Department of  the Interior.    However this is  ope of the heaviest departments,  as-the Minister of the Interior  has   under   him    Immigration,  Lands, Indian and Forestry Departments, as well as Mines.    It  is felt that under a full-fledged  minister   the   mining    industry  could be given far more encouragement than it has received in  the past.    British Columbia is  particularly   anxious   to  see  a  Minister   of   Mines  appointed.  The names suggested for the position are;   Messrs R. B. Bennett,  Calgary; J. D. Taylor, New Westminster; Robert Green the new  member to succeed  Mr. A.  S.  Goodeve, Kootenay.    Mr.  Green  was formerly Minister of Mines  in the B. C. government.  Mr. C. S. Manchester a member of the firm of Dutcher, Maxwell & Co., consulting engineers  for the city, arrived here on  Wednesday, and has been a very  busy man since his arrival. Mr.  Manchester is the electrical engineer of the above firm and is  now busily engaged laying out  the work for the installation of  the electric, lighting system for  Merritt. Tenders for the construction of the power house are  now advertised for and the contract for its construction will be  let next week.  "Just as soon as the contractors can rush the power house to  completion the machinery will be  on the ground waiting to be  placed in position and lights  should be turned on about the  15th of October" said Mr. Manchester. There will be twenty  arc lights for the main part of  the town and on all other streets  cluster lights will be used.  Quilchena avenue with its long  string of arc lamps, will look  like the "broad white way" after  October 15.  The laying of the mains for  the water works system is being  rushed and the contract for the  large reservoir will be let in a  few days.  "We are doing our utmost to   o  Sold Liquor to Indian  Joseph Smith,   no  relation of  Joseph Smith the Mormon  pro-  phe_t,__.but_an_earstwhile_sportof--  Merritt,  appeared before Police  Magistrate Morgan this morning,  on a charge of supplying liquor  to   Johnny   Phillips an Indian.  Johnny   was   caught   with   the'  goods on him and by informing..  the magistrate   who   hiis friend  was that supplied hinrwith the  liquor was  let off on suspended  sentence.   Smith, who is a tired  looking chap,   was found guilty  and was assessed $50 and costs  or with  the option of working  for the province at Kamloops for.  three months.     A   ninety-nine  year   sentence    with   the   lash  would be more of an inducement  for this   class   of people to quit  the business than mere fining.  A visitor to the city this week'  remarked: "Merritt is all the  same as Vancouver", meaning  building, tearing up the streets  for the laying of pipe lines and  the stringing of electric light  wires and the improvement of  the city in- general which is being carried out. She is sure going some.  haye everything in readiness.  by October 15th and I do not  think we will disappoint the citizens of Merritt one day," concluded Mr. Manchester. ���^yt^tf^HJ -Mf,.  h?HE NICOLA VALLEY NEWS  Friday.

Will Celebrate Royally.  From 181.2 to 1912 is a far cry  for a western city and there are  fewjplaces on this side of the  Rockies where a modern up-to-  date town is able to celebrate  the hundredth anniversary of its  founding.  The citizens of Kamloops have  not_ let so unique an opportunity  pass unnoticed and a three day  fete has been arranged which  will eclipse anything heretofore  attempted in the interior of  British Columbia. Over $10,000  has been subscribed for prizes  and attractions and every cent of  it is to be spent to give the visitors who come to help the city  celebrate a good time for three  whole days. ���  Pageants and parades, sports  and races, fireworks and fun will  be the order of day and night and  the gathering will break up with  a confetti carnival when King  Frolic will reign supreme  througout the city. ���  Single^ fares have been arranged on the Canadian Pacific  Railway to cover the 17th, 18th  and 19th of September.

They Did it Cheaper  Some old ledgers have recently  been discovered at Palos, Spain,  which contain interesting entries  concerning the outlay made by  Christopher Columbus on his expedition to the New World. The  armament of the. little fleet cost  14,000 pesetas. The personal expense of Columbus and his officers  were about 2000 pesetas, and six  pesetas a month sufficed for each  of the crew, so that 22,050 pesetas  or about $4,400, were spent for  the eight months that the voyage  lasted. The sum total whereby  America was discovered, was  36,'QOO pesetas or about $7,200,  Apparently they were able to  do things cheaper in those days  than can be done at present.  Columbus'and his crew, did not  have to worry about the high*cost  of living anyhow. It cost a lot  more than $7,000 to discover the  North and South Poles, and now  they are discovered it is not likely that great nations will spring  up around them. So old Columbus accomplished much more after all with.his scanty allowance  than modern explorers have with  all the big funds at their disposal.���Ex.

'   ;  Double Hanging at Kamloops  James, the man who shot Constable Aston, and Takahashi, the  Japanese who killed a fellow  countryman near Kamloops, were  both hanged at Kamloops last  Friday morning. They both  walked to the scaffold unconcerned. They ate a good breakfast.  The Japanese said "Good-bye,  gentlemen." James said carelessly, "So long, fellows."  Thursday at noon James tried  to break from   the  jail..'When  being   served   with   dinner    he  made   a   dash through   the cell  door as it was opened to hand in  the tray he threw   pepper'in the  eyes   of   Constable Simpson and  tried to hit him.    His object was  to overpower him, seize the keys  and unlock the door   of   the office in which the death cell is located.    That door once  open  he  would have fled to liberty.    Simpson, half blinded  with  pepper,  felled James with a blow of his  baton over the head.    James had  abstracted quantities of pepper  from day to day and had  it in a  paper   tube,   gummed   together  with oatmeal porridge.  The Japanese in the same cell  witnessed the scene but took no  part. Two other guards in the  room got out of the way of the  pepper shower.  Most  Luxurious   Auto Service in  B.   C.
