The city hall is now undergoing the last .stages of construction and is well worth' a  visit of inspection. All the various quarters, public and private  alike, have one excellent feature  in common���plenty of light and  air.  In the basement are  five luxurious cells in which it would be  almost a pleasure  to be locked  up   in,    always    provided   that  matutinal fine was not too stiff or  the rock-pile sentence  too  long.  Possible prisoners will also have  the satisfaction of knowing that  the storeroom for their effects is  the  last  word in efficiency.    In  the   basement are also   located  ample  furnace  room  and toilet  accommodation,    The first floor  is reached from the street  level  by two entrances, that on Garcia  leading to  the police office and  cells,   the  principal  and  official  entrance  is   from   Granite   and  leads directly into a spacious and  well  lighted   hall   from   which  open the police office, court room,  city clerks office, Mayor's private  office and  the usual accommodation  offices.    The  next floor is  practically   given    over   to   the  council  room  and  a  large committee room   which  later.'under  the present council'will be available for meetings of  the Merritt  Board   of   Trade.      Both   these  rooms are lofty, well lighted and  airy  and   appear , ample  for the  purpose  for. which   they   were  designed.   The top floor provides  accommodation for janitors quarters  and  comprise three room's,  two living -and--one--sleeping.-  The tower naturally  houses the  fire alarm  bell,   and  provides .a  shaft for-the' drying.of hose,I a  piece of hose fifty feet in length  can be hung up in this shaft and  clear the bottom floor nicely. The  fire hall outside of that for the  plant has  sleeping quarters for  four persons all  designed with  the idea of ease-" of access and  comparative comfort.    The front  elevation of the city hall is pleasing   not   to   say   imposing, and  gives one  the  impression   of a  young city forging ahead slowly  but   surely,    Without- furniture  or any external frills or internal  decoration the whole proposition  reflects   credit    upon   designer,  contractors and the council of the  day.  Judges Have Been Appointed  For Each Division  Another  Special Prize  Offered.  Has  Bank Premises Make Good Showing  The new premises of the Bank  of Montreal on Quilchena already  make the avenue look larger and  more than ever the centre of  business. While it is not so imposing a building as one generally associates with the premier  bank of Canada, it will be a distinct? addition to the architect  ural beauties of the town,  Tbe New Station  The new station, bar a little  final polish and electrical installation is about complete and the  agent and his staff have vacated  the old abode-like buildmg and  will soon be at home in their new  and decidedly new quarters.

The final preparations for the  Fall Exhibition of the Nicola  Valley Agricultural and Horticultural Association are now  completed.and everything down  to the merest detail is in perfect  readiness for the opening of the  exhibition next Wednesday, September 25th.  His Worship, Mayor Reid, has  issued a proclamation declaring  the afternoon of Wednesday,  Sept. 25th a.public holiday. The  schools will-be closed that the  boys and girli? may attend the  fair and'' study for themselves the best their elders can  produce. ;  , The judges  for the. different  divisions   have,  been  appointed,  and the  Secretary  reports up to  the time  of -going  to press that  the  entries'so, far  received by  him  for   the coming exhibition  are far more numerous  and that  by far greatef'interest  is   being  shown this year' than  on  either  of the former' occasions.  , Since   the-special  prize   lis.ts  were   issued.

Minto Cup Games  .  .New Westminster,.Sept.  19.���  The world's  lacrosse  championship for 1912 will  be  decided a  the Provincial exhibition iri.New  Westminster on  Oct.   i   and 5,  when   . the    New   Westminster  team,   champions  of  the  B.  C  Lacrosse   Association,   and   the  Cornwall Club, chansons of the  N. L. U.,   battle for  possession  of the Minto Cup   which  carries  with it the title  of  world champions.    The   cup   was   held   by  New    Westminster    for    three  years, going to Vancouver 1911.  Thc Salmonbeilies  regained possession of the trophy  this  summer, and the Cornwalls,   by virtue of their victories  in.the east  have come  to  the  coast  in  an  effort to carry off the silverware.  It was first arranged to play  the Minto Cup games in this city  during the week preceding  the  big fair.    The exhibition  management however scented  a big  attraction and' an  offer to the  clubs of $7,000 for the two games  was accepted.     Joe Lally,  the  big lacrosse stick  manufacturer  represented the Cornwall club in  the   transactions."     The   games  will be  played  on  the  opening  and closing days of the fair,   the  first   contest   being   staged   on  Tusday afternooon,   Oct.   1  and  the second on Saturday, Oct.  5.

We wish to point out that we  have no axe to grind in this matter, we merely regard it as a  necessary improvement to the  city, also as doing away with the  dangerous bit of road from Charters bridge to the Chinese shack.  road  superintendent arrived  in  town from   the   main 'line  last  evening.     -Mr.   Sutherland' informed the News  that he has  been   authorized   to   pilot" Mr.  Thomas W. Wilby the cross-Canr  ada pathfinder upon  his arrival  at Princeton from that  point to  Hope.    Mr. Wilby started from  Halifax on August 27th  on an  automobile  trip  which he plans  to end on the  western coast  of  Vancouver    Island    about   five  weeks  Kence, ..thereby   demonstrating the .practicability of the  Canadian-High way���He_is-the  official    representative ��� of   the  Canadian Highway Association,  and   flies   the   pennant of that  organization on  his automobile.  This and the  flag of the Automobile Club of Canada,: are the  only decorations-.which hesports.  For several  months preparations have been going on for this  first cross-Canada journey.    Cooperating .'with    the    energetic!  pathfinder,   the   officers  of  the  Canadian   Highway Association  have   prepared    maps,    plans,  charts, etc., which will be invaluable to Mr. Wilby.    A chain of  pilots   has   also   been   provided  across the continent.   Those in  Eastern Canada, as far as the  Great Lakes, have been selected  by different automobile clubs in  these districts while west of this  point the men have been appointed by the Canadian Highway As-;  sociation.  . In   most  cases   the  pilot is a member,-frequently an  officer, cf the association, and it  is his   intention.-'tpiacisompahy  Mr. Wilby for at least onehuhii-,  red miles on hjs journey resigning his seryices as. guide" wheal  the district served  by another  officer is reached.        '   '  There are of course great difficulties to be met with on the  many  weeks   it  seemed as if the trip would have  to be abandoned as there seemed  no possibility of getting beyond  the Great Lakes,  short of  shipping the car over the railroad  or on one of the boats plying  on  the inland sea,  but  a  few days  ago Mr. Wilby was advised  that  a party which had been sent ont  to thoroughly investigate conditions in that localirj*, had reported that a route which appeared  to be passable had at length been  located.  On   reaching  the  British  Co-  lumbia boundary Mr. Wilby will  be met by  Mr. Guy Lowenberg,  who will have charge  of him as  far as Castlegar,   where Mr. J.  D, Anderson, will  undertake  to  pilot the   car   as   far as Grand  Forks  from   which    point   Mr.  Wilby will have  the  assistance  of Mr.  J. Davis.   At   Princeton  where it was thought they would  have  to pack  the  car over the  Hope    mountains,     until     Mr.  Sutherland undertook  the  task  of making the   Nicola valley a  link in the cross-Canada  route,  Mr.   Sutherland   will,   join   the  pathfinder and pilot him to Hope.  The trip from Princeton through  the   Nicola   down   to   Spence's  Bridge is ideal, but from Spencers Bridge to  Hope is  the  big  obstacle, but Sutherland is a big  man. and once he  undertakes a |  thing obstacles   melt away, and  Mr.  Sutherland   informs  us he  will   successfully   negotiate this  obstacle.    Mr. Wilby will be met  at the town  of Hope by President W. J. Kerr, who will escort  him to Chilliwack and down the  Fraser  valley   to    Westminster  and    Vancouver,    stopping   at  Westminster   long    enough   to  entertain  the   pathfinder   at   a  luncheon to be given  in; his" honor.   ���-���__  Forty-five Years Ago vK        ]t  Kelow we re produce, an .in voice  of, bill of goods sold forij-five  years ago at Lillooet, "as" well as  a bill of sale of: a' horsey Compare them wit-h-the present high-  cost of living prices.

EDITORIAL NOTES    ,  A news paragraph which appeared in our last issue evidently got the goat of a gentleman  who elected to be known as Mr.  Brown while in pursuit of game  out of season. We wish to say  that we had no ill will towards  the gentleman in question and  that the item was published by  the direct request of the provincial police of Savonas,as a warning to the public at large and not  because of despite to an individual. We can assure Mr. Brown  that there are far more profitable openings for his surplus cash  than to take proceedings, against  the News for publication of the  fact that he was fined for breaking thelaw.of the land.  The Saturday Sunset waxes  facetious at the expense of "Hon.  Col. Sam Hughes. The Minister  of Militia can certainly taHc but  he has also proved that hev can  stand up stoutly in the. day of  battle, as his South African record proves. The editor of the  Sunset has yet to prove that he  can be as brave in the field as he  is on paper.  A brief sketch.of the career of  H. R. H. the Governor-General  may not be out of place this week  since our Royal < Governor has  elected to pay us a'welcome visit  also that some of .orov own local  militia men have. been chosen  to a place on H. R. H.. escort.  We eliminate the style and titles  of our Royal visiter for they convey but little So the,uninitiated,  it will suffice if we'say that the.  Duke was- born on the first day  of May, 1850, was married to a  Princess of Prussia ih 1879, and  that the issue ..of the marriage  has .been, Princess Margaret,  now Crown Princess of Sweden,  Prince Arthur, lately created  Duke of Kent, and last but npt  by any means least Princess Patricia.  The Duke himself has a good  ecord both as soldier and diplomat, he ' commanded abrigade in  the Egyptian war of 1882, and  was conimander-in^ChiefJn Bom  bay, India. The D.uke's home  service has been equally brilliant;  he commanded-in-chief at Alder-  shot from 1893 to 1898. That-  His Royal Highness is a true son  of the empire% is evidenced by  the fact that he refused the ducal  crown of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha  when in 1899 he became heir to  that reigning dukedom. .  In 1902 His Royal: Highness  was promoted a Field-Marshall  and in the same year headed the  special British embassy to Mad^  rid to invest the King of Spain  with the coveted order of the  Garter. In 1910 H. R. H. opened  the parliament of - the' Union of  South africa in the name of the  King and a yeai later was sent  to Canada as Governor-Genera  and Commander-in-Chief.  Ratepayers Had a Stormy Meeting  The ratepayers of the Lower  Nicola school district had a somewhat stormy meeting in the hall  at Lower Nicola last Saturday. -'"  The meeting was called to decide as to whether or not a new  site should be purchased and a  new school erected thereon.  .Almost without exception every ratepayer in the school district was present which fact was  eloquent of a hard and fast decision one way or the oth~r.  The meeting voted Colonel  Flick to the chair and the chairman at once called for a vote rescinding the last school meeting  which had been impeached as illegal by the opponents of progress among the ratepayers.  A resolution as above was unanimously carried.  Then came the resolution of  the evening, "that this meeting  of ratepayers empower the trustees to purchase a site offered by  Mr. Tyner". A long and somewhat lively discussion took place  ere the above resolution was put  and carried by a unanimous and  enthusiastic house.  One feature ; of the discussion  was>atrr' apparent objection on the  part of the opponents of progress to the .publication of the  meeting and: its objects in the  Nicola Valley News, in factjifc.  appeared that one almost ultra-  progressive rate-payer had been  accused of inserting the notice  for his own .ends, however the  chairman shouldered the responsibility and at the same time  pointed out that the editor had a  perfect right to draw attention  to forthcoming meetings and also  to comment on the same if he  choose. Then Mr. Dodding took"  the floor and waxed eloqent upon  the fact that he would have to  pay half the taxes, however  since Mr. Dodding owns most of  the valuable land in the district  he found the meeting anything  but sympathetic and.the opinion  of -the meeting evidently was  that those who owned the land  should pay the.taxes.  We may be pardoned a little  digression in order to point out  how quickly a man's opinions are  changed by circumstances a tenant farmer -in England rails at  and of the iniquity and hardfist-  edness.of his landlord, but let  that tenant farmer come to Canada and own land of his own, he  then developes a- jealousy of  ownership which far exceeds that  of his former landlord and rivals  the immortal Shylock in his demand of his'pbund of flesh. But  to return to. our meeting: while  Mr. Dodding was on the floor it  developed that the real reason  for a change of school site was  that better supervision could be  exercised over the children, for  tales had, come to the ear's of  some of the ratepayers that'were  scarcely .creditable to all concerned. This latter development  absolutely knocked the' bottom"  out of the opposition who spiked I  their guns and retiring with the'.  honours of war left the meeting  to pass the resolution of the evening.  Before the-meeting broke up a  resolution was passed asking  Colonel Flick and Mr. Tyher,  who were going to Victoria on  H.JR.JH. the_Gpyernor-Generars  Corporation of the  City of Merritt.

His work  will endure. The world, which  is always looking for the real  thing, will gladly overlook his  infirmities. In every relation of  life sincerity is the secret of  power. The salesman who does  not himself sincerely believe in  the merits of his goods will generally be a failure. The business  man who sets about to fool other  people must end,, as he has, in  fact, begun, by making a fool of  himself.

For rates and sailings apply  to       \ ''  Advertising as a Guarantee.  When a business concern invests a large sum of money in a  handsome store equipment for  retail merchandising," the public  fe��ls a certain degree "of confidence that the concern has goods  worth examining. People argue  that unless they had established  a reputation for fair dealing and  unless they had goods that they  knew filled a need, they would  not dare spend so much money.  Advertising, likewise, acts as a  guarantee of substantial business  character.. When a firm spends  money freely on this necessary  form of salesmanship, the public  concludes that it must have  goods back of it that have demonstrated their worth, or the firm  would not have set apart this  sum of money for selling them  through the newspapers. A concern that does not advertise im-  presses'publicas merely an experiment. The fact that it may  have been in existence for many  years does not help it very much.  The public may even look at mere  existence for a long term of years  as a disqualification, indicating  preference for old time methods.  It takes advertising to prove that  you have confidence in your  goods. .   .  NOTICE  oal and Petroleum Act.
