The Okanagau and Spalluinclieen
Agricultural society was incorporated
uiui the lirst exhibition given at Vernon in 1801, Its inception and success
Illustrates the courage, skill and vigor
of those who assumed the undertaking, The publishers of the Advance
know all about thnl, its ,Alr. Stuart wns
secretary U) the society the lirst year
and Mr. Norris the second year,
[Much obliged for the send off.-En.)
In 1893 the directors decided that the
society should have ils own grounds
and buildings, and have the exhibition
hull and the cattle show in ono park,
Hitherto the shows have been held in
buildings and grounds given free nf
t'enl by iin' Okanagan Land and li"-
velopmonl Company, by the Columbian Milling Company, and by Mr.
Girouard, They purchased four
and one-half acres from Mr, O'Kcefo
and havo arranged with Mr, .1. Hutchison that he, for the gate receipts and
refreshment booths for ilro exhibitions,
erect a hall 70x30 feet with 30x30 feet
added in front of the centres transfer
the cattle .shells from Mr, Cirouurd's
corral to the new grounds ami enclose
lbe park by ;i close hoard fence eight
feet high before October 1st, to he
used for the society's exhibitions ni)d
at the end of thu term b" the property
of the society free of any other cost,
Mr, Hutchison is having the work forwarded with energy, The sheds are
transferred, the fence completed, and
lbe hull will be finished in good time.
Tliu directors are endeavoring to improve Ihe exhibition aud extend Its-
usefulness! they have extended the
list of prizes nnd reduced the membership fee from $5 to $3, nnd thu entrance fee from 50 cents to 25 cents,
His Excellency Lord Aberdeen, who
opened the first exhibition of the Society, will Ihis year again favor the
oxhllijtjon by bring present, It is,
therefore very desirable that every
part of tlie district should be so represented as to give ample evidence of ils
capabilities and advancement,

Rock Crook Recollections.
(From an Old Tin|cr.)
The first excitement on Rock creek
was in '61, when, it is stated, there
were fully U,000 people at the mouth of
Rock creek, and this inrush
lastpd several years. In the fall of 'SO
there was a revival of placer on the
creek, owing to the discovery of
White's bnr by H. White, J. Cooper,
C. .Deitz and F. Deitch, where Messrs.
Donahue k Co. are now working, who
took out over $2,000 that season and
$25,000 the next year out of this one
bar. At one. time they had twelve
men working for them on the claim
and were taking out pay averaging $20
a day to the man, A Spokane npin
llild prospected the bar a few days before White and his partners staked it
off and hud sunk several holes on it
and found no pay, having worked
close to where the pny came from. He
left a notice ou a tree to tlie effect that
|t was no good, In the fall of '8(1
Messrs. J, Moran, (I. Young, M. Hotter and 0. Winkler also located a liar
three miles further up the creek and
took out big pay the next season, In
'87 also several other claims were opened up on both branches of lbe creek,
and whal wns known as the Denver
company made big money out of a bur
between Wliile'sand Holler's. Messrs.
Copeland nnd Yi)||kiu Clime in Ibis season nnd liiivn been mining there ever
since. The same year, also, Mr. T.
iMcAuley started a drain ditch company, who tried to reach lied rock
about one thousand feet below While's
bar, but operations were stopped by
quicksand, The same fall J, Gallagher
and T. McAidey tried to reach bed
rock about three miles above the
mouth,, but were again prevented by
quicksand,
After this year the camp went down
hill, bpl, While's bar kept working,
also Moran's nnd pne or f,wo par|jus on
tlie south fork.
in the fall of m Mr. White (who
had bought out his former-partners the
previous spring) wild out to D. Cameron, A. Donobup nnil T, Raby. More
or less pay bi|s, bepp taken put p( |t sipce

''it pnjoyed"  (luring  the   lew yours
after the Franco-Prussian war, The
farmers of Englaud do nol expect a return to tbe high prices of war times,
but they wish to be placed on an
pqqal footing with oilier competitors,
who never use fertilizers, and whose
grnii) is delivered iii London or Liverpool almost ijs cheaply ns English
gfaln can be sent from Carlisle to
Warwick, It wns on account, of this
strong feeling that two years ago the
Agricultural Union was formed, with
Lord Wiiirlielscn as chairman. Hulas
to other Imports, such as inaniifac
tpres, sugar, cuttle, &c, there would
be a revolution did the Legislature
(Jure to levy imports upon them, Except the farming interest, Englaud is
ai ill essentially lor free trade.
WP Diay now pass to the considera-
taj!) of the question in our country,
Where, in many things the Mother of
Qplonles nets ns a model. The personal attachment still existing to the
name of Sir John A. Macdonald is
probably the reason why the western
population bus not. more closely investigated the question of trade policy
than it has done. Liberal leaders have shouted of Unrestricted
Reciprocity, of Commercial Union, of
il Low jariff, until it is impossible to
really understand what is the policy
they favor. The Conservatives, on tlie
other band, while Ibey remained consistent to the principles of their great
lender when he wns in life, have now
adopted the idle of the Democrats in
the United .States, and have tinkered
and patched t|io tariff until a few alterations were really effected, Why did
tl'tey do Sd 'I In obedience to the wish
pf tin! people. It is ibis high tariff
that chokes commerce with an iron
grasp, that raises the price of all
maiiufaclui'ci! articles to an unreasonable pitch, and enriches the few at the
expense of tlie ninny. The National
Policy, as at first conceived, was to
protect and foster tho industries of
Canada in their Infancy; but the time
bus now arrived when many of these
industries are gigantic monopolies,
destroying tlie independence of trade,
The ipfant |ias outgrown its long
clothes, but the pap still continues, In
the eastern provinces the effect of high,
protection cannot be felt as it is in the
West, us the competition for a home
market lias kept many articles down
to a fair price, bnt |n the West, everything imported, whether cliilbing or
groceries or machinery, sepins to be at
treble value. Why should we pay enormous charges for goods Imported
from Montreal, when we can buy nt
reasonable rales across tho line?' To
state the position ns shortly ns possible: The condition of agriculture,
caused by the low prices for wheat and
slock, demands Hint justice be done t
the farmer i|s well ins lo the niniinlai
turer. Wbun the limes were limes (if
plenty Ilia farmers of Canada ppilld
afford to pny high prices und lu ivulcli
Ihe growl h of monopolies, but a
liinilgc bus now arrived, nnd jt is iu
season ilinl the nexi legislation affecting Ihe lm ill'should lend to reduce lbe
duties on Imported machinery, clothes,
nnd oilier articles froip foreign countries, By all meaiis |ieep ibe manufacturer's raw nmlei'inl on lbe free list,
but give tlie farmer an equal chance
und put bis taw material, the provisions lie eats and the machinery lie
uses on lbe free list also, Why should
protection be granted to inuppfuelur]
ers so that they cup charge exorbitant
prices, It, is surely not a hard iiinllcr
for a legislative body, comnpspt] (it tlm
phospii men of the Dominion, to fix a
maximum rate foe the prices of niniiii-
faclurcil goods as a basis upon which
to levy duties. It is, I fear, only too
tcpe that tlie. Parliament of Oanadu
lpis rarely fixed the rale of duties without having regard ns (o what tbe effect
would be upon imports, For instance,
after much tinkering, pottering und
arguing, the duty on American agricultural machineay was lately reduced
to 20 per pent, That is, an American
binder worth $200 is placed in ihe Canadian market nt $2111 enabling lliu
Canadian liianufttcturor, who can pro.
iluce a machine for probably jusl ns
low a cosl ns ibe Auieticnn, lo obtain
profit of $10. is it won-
erful that enormous fortunes have
been made in eastern cities by those
years of the present system ami wo

VERNON NOTES,
(From our own correspondent.)
Vernon, .Aug. 2!). There is no'.
much to report this week, iind I can
only suy, as Capt, Shorts would suy,
"a continuation of the same old
thing," dry smokoy weather, good for
finishing tlie harvest and threshing,
Our lire brigade Is organized and now
practices every night, Tbe old curio is
lining good work, and at hist night's
practice two streams of water were
I brown on the roof of the Okaungaii
hotel.
The machinery for Short's now
steamer arrived yesterday and the
captain may soon be on tlie Okanogan
again, keeping down piracy.
' Messrs. Ellison nnd Hill nre both
running their steam threshers, and
from reports the wheal is yielding
much better than was anticipated,
while the quality Is excellent.
Giroiiai'd's irrigation ditch is about
to lie boxed in by Ihe city and lbe
water conveyed 111 tanks to the whole
Hat for lire purposes.
Tlie analyst has pronounced Long
lake water good, bul it is opined I hul
the people will pronounce against
wnter works if a by-law is submitted
A couple of men or boys on horse-
buck Sunday night rode up Coldstream
street smashing windows, two large
panes in (lie Hudson's Hay store being
broken, Constable Heron gave chase,
hut was unable to overtake them, li
is high time I bat sort of thing wns pul
a stop to.
Armstrong is at present overrun
with detectives, but whether Ibey are
looking for Paget or illegal voters is a
mystery lo the inhabitants of that
quiet town,
There is nothing fresh re the protest,
but rutnor has a great deal to say on
the subject. It is reported the Japs
are nol allowed to vote for Graham iu
this riiling. However, we will be belter posted often the court sits on the
Sib October.
Typhoid fever has appeared ill Mr.
Ficrhellor's family,
I regret, to stale that Aid. Goulette'f
eldest child Is very seriously ill.
Mr, MpNnir's handsome new resi
dence is Hearing completion,
Mr. A. Muir Is putting up a comfortable residence next to Mr. (louletl
lot.
