There was naught but a wilderness when he first set foot on
the soil that has since been given
over to the growing town of Merritt. ^ It was on a hunting expedition that he came here in company with sOme others and while
he did not make this his abode at
that time still 'so'impressed was
he with the possibilities of the
district that,, he returned a few.
years later. "That was in the fall
of '72 just seven years since he
exploited the district, in search of
game.
The noble red /men held sws,y
in Nicola Valley at that time, in
fact they were largely in evidence everywhere the pioneer
sought. Possession was more
than nine-tenths of the law in
those days for the red men ever
thirsting for blood had to be subdued. Mr, Voght can relate with
vivid memory some of the incid-
For thirteen years he farmed
growing grains and vegetables.
Grain sold then at only 18 cents
a pound and hay was but 7 cents.
It was while Mr. Voght was still
at North Bend that Governor
Douglas built the famous trail
through the Fraser canyon.
But destiny had planned another home for William Voght. The
hunting trip, that was organized
in '65 was to bring him into contact with the .district that has
since been his home. The Nicola
country waa then an uriknown
quantity outside of the band of
Indians that then roamed it from
end to end.
In 1872 when he returned he
took up the land that he still occupies and which is now in the
very heart of the town of Merritt
but most of which has since been
given over to business blocks and
city lots.    George Muir, a young
ehts that surround early life along { Scotchhian, who   had   been   be
friended many . times by Mr.
Voght previously occupied the
land. Muir was drowned in the
Nicola river and a pathetic feature of his death was the factthat,
his sweetheart for whom he Had1'
sent had landed in Canada and
was then on her way to join him.
, It was while on a prospecting
trip up the Fraser that Mr. Voght
met Mr. Garcia in the little town
    of Lytton.    Mr. Garcia had two
carrie on to New Orleans.. Yellow 'pack trains and was moving on

the Fraser canyon and even up
in this country. Time and again
did he and his comrades clash
with the Indians and eternal vigilance was the price of safety in
all parts of the land:
Born in 1857 in the little town
of Holsteih, Germany, Mr. Voght
was but sixteen years of age when
he decided to come to the new
world to seek his fortunes. He

the cheap travel of to-day.
. But the irony of fate destined
William Voght for British Columbia and in 1858 he landed at* Victoria having made the voyage from
San Francisco in a sailing ship
which he as a member of a company of two hundred souls had
chartered. Govenor Douglas was
then the power in British Columbia. Real estate in Victoria
was not as high as it is now and
Mr. Voght tells how he could buy
a good corner lot for five pounds.
But the lure of the gold was

lived so long.
Bright and cheery in disposition, ever charitably disposed in
nature his generous self has long
since earned the loving esteem of
all who know him and no man
throghout the length and breadth
of Nicola Valley is more honored
or respected. Nothing he likes
more than to, talk of the past and
his'.retentive memory is a valued,
agency in unfolding the story of
  the  struggle he  experienced in
amfhisi^reeTwa^
more and more of the romantic and happiness that he  occupies
for it meant fight to death with
the Indians before the precious
gold could be reached. The next
year Mr. Voght joined the rush
again this time reaching a point
about forty miles abave Big Bar
in the Lilloett country. He was
well rewarded and for a time his
earnings reached as much as fifty
dollars per day.
But the spirit of enterprise so
charactistic of the German was
soon to lift him from the ordinary-
plane of prospector-and to place
him in a more industrial sphere-
that of agriculture. In company
with a man named Haliack he
took up land at North Bend on
the site of the present C. P. R.
station. He was virtually the
founder of the town that has
since become one of the divisional
basis of Canada's great transcontinental railway.

The New Train Service
-_i~l Last week a new schedule went
into effect on the mainline of the
Canadian Pacific railway as well
as on the local branch line.
Train No. 308 which previous-
ly reached Merritt at 10.56 in the
5 morning and Nicola at 11.20 now
comes in at 19.11 at Merritt and
19.45 at Nicola.
This may be a little inconveniencing in some ways but any
local deficiencies are more than
and more direct rout to Aspen
Grove and Princeton. The question of sanitation and sewerage
were discussed with good results.
The delegation which comprised
T. J. Smith, A. Jackson and W.
Mclntyre are more, than satisfied
that something of a permanent
nature will be accomplished as a
result of the interview.

William Frisken Transferred
The people of Nicola Valley and
particularly those who have occasion to travel over the lines of
the Canadian Pacific railway will
regret the removal of Conductor
William Frisken who has been on

No effort was ^spared by the

for the comfort and convenience
of their guests and the . story of
their success is best told in many
expressions of appreciation and
satisfaction that were heard on
every hand. The floor was in
excellent shape and the music
furnished by Messrs.. Brash and

capable floor manager and A.

About Ourselves
We have no dissertations to offer
: in introducing The Nicola Val-
; ley News to the consideration
of the reading public. We feel
; that we have a worthy ob-
! ject to serve and towards this
' end we will ever direct our best
' thought and endeavor.
While our base of energy will
be  centered in Merritt still this
does not by any means mark the
confines    of    our    constituency.
: The  News  wall   be   devoted   to
| the general promotion of the best
j interests of the Nicola Valley as
I a. whole irrespective  of, centre,
t party or clique.    From Quilchena
i and Aspen Grove and Otter Flat
: atone extreme through to Spences
Bridge on the north every point
will be served without distinction
and. the interests of  the  entire
district,    agriculturally,    industrially and socially will be treated
to the best of our. ability. ,   Our
field as a whole will, however, be
provincial and our sphere will be
as wide as the  requirements  of
the public demands.- --■• -
Politically The News will pro-
. mote the cause of Conservatism
and,will serve.as the CoRserva-
. tive organ for the constituency of
West Yale.     We propose to de-
. vote   considerable   attention   to
those points along the mainline
.within  the  jurisdiction of West
;Yale.
We have received splendid encouragement on * all sides" and
^af ter"aii=rfo-paper=can=do^j usti ce=
to itself or to the public unless it
does receive a proper measure
of support and encouragement.
We have entered the field with
the full sense of our responsibility to the public as well as to
ourselves and we trust that bur
career wjU j3e^„fmugM .with„the.
greatest harmony and goodwill
towards all interests.- Towards
this end we will enlist the cooperation and sympathy, of the
general public.
This matter has been mooted
before but has encountered strenuous opposition in more quarters
than one because of certain petty
jealousies. But it is mature time
that w^e set aside these petty
jealouslies and treated in a broader sense those problems that are
closely associated with the growth
and development of our district.
There is no organization that
can accomplish more for any community than an energetic Board
of Trade. We have common interests to serve in Nicola Valley
and the development and expansion of the valley as a whole
means development and expansion of Merritt as well as Nicola
and other local communities. But
so long as we have these conflicts and so long as hostilities
exist in any quarter we' can
never promote the interests of
Nicola Valley on a broad and permanent basis.
One of the greatest essentials
in the matter of promoting development is the organization of
a good system of publicity.
Aside from the enterprise of
certain private parties there is no
literature to offer that treats in-
a fair measure the resources and
possibilities of the Nicola Valley.
Under present conditions it is
impossible to organize a system
of publicity that will benefit in
all departments the industrial and
commercial interests of the district.
Merritt Board of Trade has
jurisdiction simply within the
confines of the town- of Merritt
and wrhat is true of Merritt is
true of Nicola. The most valued
interests of Nicola-Valley are
centered beyond the jurisdiction
of either of these organizations
with the result that they cannot be
fairly reached from either source.
We cannot do better than, take
pattern from the Okanagan Valley and after all what district in
British Columbia1 is...rnore widely
terest irrespective of residence.
The matter is worthy of the most
serious thought. and the sooner
something permanent is effected
towards this end the sooner we
will be in a position to properly
promote the development and expansion of Nicola Valley with its
varied interests.
A Wise Move
The citizens of Merritt showed
the fullest measure of wisdom in
temporarily setting aside the
question of incorporation. The
public meeting of last Thursday
evening was a splendid evidence
of the public spiritedness of
the residents of this thriving
town.  •
Never was Nicola Valley in a
better position to receive government assistance for   roads   and
Merritt Athletic Association
Merritt Athletic Association
has taken a new lease of life
much to the gratification of its
host of friends.
Under the new regime a progressive policy is being inaugurated and if successfully operated should be a potent factor
in moulding the future of this
popular institution.
The completion of the club
house, the establishment of recreation grounds and other worthy
enterprises are amongst the items
on the programme and in its'
effort the association is worthy
of the best sympathy and support of the people of Merritt.
CM. R. for Nicola Valley
It is gratifying to know that
the military authorities at Ottawa

Those who are familiar with the
history of the militia in Canada.
plish infinitely more for Merritt! will agree that more substantial
and contiguous territory than incorporation could have gained.
Incorporation is a good thing
but there is just the possibility
that it is premature under present
conditions and far better might
we defer the decisive step until
we are in a better position to
know and appreciate the responsibilities that incorporation would
thrust upon the citizens, of. Merritt.
>   Valley Board of Trade . ■ ■■'
There are many-things that we
require in the'Nicola Valley today but one of the most urgent
is a well organized and properly
directed Board of Trade.  *    •

commendable success and there

To Our Pioneers
We are inaugurating this week
a series of biographical sketches
in which we hope to/place in an
intelligent light before the public
the romantic history that surrounds the pioneers of Nicola
valley. ' We owe much to our
pioneer fathers. They. it was.
who laid the foundation for our
-pi-esent-happiness-and=pr0sperity.=
They beat back 7the forests, they■
biazed the trails, they eridured.
privations and hardships and it
is in an effort to pay them the
the tribute that is their due that
we have undertaken these life
stories. The policy was early
associated with: the •prelimmar£
plans of our organization as a
paper because we knew full well
that the matter had never received proper attention in the past.
We trust that otar efforts will bs
will received and that they will
be successfuHn welding stronger
the links that bind the present to
the past as they are represented
in the men who were amongst
the first to enjoy the delightful
climate and invigorating atmosphere of Nicola Valley.
progress and development has
been recorded in connection with
the mounted corp than with any
other department of the service-
There seems to be a larger measure of attractiveness in a mounted
squadron, thanari any other corns
and evidence of this is found in
the active interest and enthusiasm
that it claims from the young men.
The history of the recently organized squadron in the city of
Kamloops is one story of successes
and there is ho reason why these
good results could not be emulated locally.
No district in British Columbia
is better adapted to a corps of
this character than is Nicola Valley. We have a plentitude of
good horses, most of our young
men.are splendid riders, in fact
many of them were brought up in
the saddle,' and with a reason-
able^share^of^ability^in^drilLahd^
execution we have all the features that combine to make a successful squadron.
It is to be hoped that the organization work will receive the
best thought and endeavor^6f
those in charge and we bespeak -
.fprlthe.ma-li.vely interest and a
hearty enthusiasm on the part of
those who make up the material
for such an organization;

of snow and water were employed to quench the flames and it
was necessary to cut the car out
of the train and leave it on a spur
where the section gang finally
subdued the flames. It is fortunate that the fire did not occur
when the train was running because there was a large cargo and
in the next car was a valuable
horse.

There is excellent. material in
the valley at present but this will
be supplemented with new players
coming into the district to live.
A valley league is also projected
and this should conduce to the
improvement of material for the
general team.
The Junior Series
There remains one game to be
played between the Merritt and
Nicola juniors in the fight for the
hockey honors. The boys from
the lake took the first game on
home ice and in the return fixture
at Middlesboro the score was a
tie. It is likely -that'■- the .. youngsters wiirget" together in course
of a few days. They are showing furprisingly good form and
the series is developing good material.

that can turn the trick, The Te-

formidable contender.
