These Nechaco Valley lands have sufficient moisture and are drained by the great Nechaco river 300 feet in vidth. While they appear level they are undulating enough to as- sure good drainage. There is good well water over the valley at a. depth of U to 30 feet, clear as a crystal and no alkali. there will be made in wagons from Ashcroft. Access to the valley will soon be simplified as the Government !U'and the G. T. P. are co-operating in building a wagon road through Northern Cariboo in order to facilitate the bringing in of railway supplies. The Nechaco Valley can easily sup- port a large population as it con- tains acres of first class farm land.

Wild geese, TRIAL BY JURY The High River Times criticises the jury that acquitted Danielson, the man charged with cleaning up a lot of money from banks along the line of Macleod and Calgary railway. It thinks that the result in this case demonstrates several weaknesses in the operation of our criminal law. In the first place it points out that there does not appear to be any machinery provided by the Govern- ment for' doing the necessary detec- tive work in investigating and pre- paring evidence. In tbe second place it considers great care should that, in two days. Naturally there is a panic among For Sale!

It thinks that if Dan- Saturday from Franklin, Minn. on Mr. ducks, pheasants and partridges are' abundant and some deer. For mixed farming and fruit it is unexcelled. Being nearer the coast than Alberta it has n milder climate and as British Columbia is short on farm lands but has a. great demand for the products in her many great lumber and mining camps, what lands there are suitable for farming and fruit raising have always reach- ed a very high figure whenever ransportation har, reached thcin. When the Grand Trunk Pacific is completed through these lands in Nechaco Valley they will reach their true value of fifty to one hundred dollars per acre and it would not be surprising if they were selling at, fifty dollars per acre by this time next year. The Grand Trunk Pacific peo- ple paid last year Be per Ib. for oats in the valley and offer the same this year. The Hudson's Bay people have farmed there for 50 years and have grown fine oats and barley, SO and it will b time. F. S. Lcflinewell remodelled in a short ielson had been tried by a judge he Keef has purchased the Liml house would have been convicted. The Times even goes so far as to say: F. S. Lcmncwell went to Great "The system of trial by jury is effete and should be abolished. It seems impossible to get men suf- ficiently sane to try a case on the evidence and without prejudice. Had Danielson been tried by a judge there could have been no doubt as to the result. A good deal of xvhat the Time.0, says will be approved by the general pub- lic particularly as it is often notice- able that there is a lack of system in the ferreting out evidence in criminal cases. The government could very well estab- lish a detective branch in connec- tion with the Attorney General's de- partment. These detectives could be employed in gathering evidence: in important criminal casos. They would bf much better able to do so ihan local police officers and would not be affected by local projudict'-s and personal considerations. Falls. Mont., Tuesday. Claud Snapp went to Deer Lodge.
