Mr'G, M. Henry, 11 well known und
practical fruit grower nf llie province,
in n puper read before a couvuutiou of
fruit glowers al Agassi?, recently, after
touching upon Hie liiipes mul ferns,
llle successes mul disappointments of
tliose engaged iu this line of business,
ikclihiiod of an "mi,,,,,,,! I K'lve bis views upon lhe ipiesl ion of co-
reduce this rule, Nlunin operation in lhe tiiiirkutliig of fruit,
us follows:
" I should like lo say a word or two
regarding lhe eo-opumlloii of uur fruit
glowers. There have already, Io a
number uf districts In this province,
been formed associations minings!, the
growers I'm- the purpose of cteopemt-
ing more purl Iculurly iu 1 he market ing
of their fruit, This is without doubt
a wise step, bill don't slop there. Hn
not let your district associations,
through jealous ur selfish notions in
bitter rivalry oppose ami work against
each other, or you may in some re-
spi'ds do mule harm tnuii good, and
bring aboul one of the very disasters it
is our object.10 avoid liy cii-iipenitioil.
I refer now to the supplying of thu
Null Invest und Maulfubu markets with
mu-fruits, especially plums, which we
hope to send there in large quantities
uml carload hits, Tin* danger I would
piiriiculiii-ly warn you of, is 1 he glutting
uf sonic of ihese markets while others
may be left, almost untouched, if wo
d 1 not work Imiilioiiluiisly or amalgamate as 1 nc ussuclalIon, we may each
uf us drop a cm load into a market
(through Ignorance uf what each other
Is doing) lhat could only stand one,and
as 1 In: expense to get our fruit 1 here is
great, also the expense lo resbip it
would he great, we would be bound lo
siilfer loss and perhaps Serious loss.
This would perhaps be more liable tu
ocelli- iu sliipping liy iuu- assiu-iatjous,
In opposition lo each oilier than hidi-
1 ideally, We all know what disastrous results occur from Ihis Imp-
liiizzuid shipping into our lloilie uiar-
kels. How lunch worse, then,it would
be iu 11 distant market, Lei us therefore work together harmoniously Hlid
I w ith judgment, whether as one nsso*
John i ciiiiiuii or half a dwell. There is without doubt a market in Manitoba and

Asa result of their trip into Kootenay, tlm members of the British Columbia Board of Timle were successful
in disposing of many thousands of dollars worth of goods. This is a pleasing
piece of intelligence, as although bile
in enlcringthe Held, lhe fad Hint the
country, even imw, is worthy their
consideration, will have the effect of
drawing the eyes of lhe liniiociul world
Inwards what is without doubt oue of
Hie richest in natural resuurcus of any
recently deyelnped mineral ntrf in
llle world. Having lllinoliglily estab.
Ashed themselves in business in the
Kootenay. their nttentloii may next lie
turned to Buimdnry creek with profit
lu themselves nml nu |nSS lo Ihose who
be gleaned when it is slated that the
tunnel contains over 2,000,000 feet of
lumber and is cupped with thousands
of pieces of cordwood.

A bill will be introduced into the
next, congress, asking that all the
mineral lands coutaiued within their
grant be given over to the Norlhern
Pacilic, but as this would mean practically Hie giving awuy of millions
of dollars woi-lh'of mining property
it. is not likely to be passed.

it is expended in the development of
the district's Intent resources.

II. is uniieratooil that Mr. John Manley of Grand Forks is about lo tuke

Mon.
The building elected on Fifth street
by Mr. Donald McDulf, nor resident

piii-linii of llle town.
Mr. H. Cameron of Oanip McKinney

inlo which, when completed, he will

Mr. Boyd of Spokane and Mr Muii-
son of Itosslaud were visitors in town
on Saturday, and were here overlooking the situation us to tlie chances of
starting up in liusiness, which they
may do in the near future.
It is reported that Mr. Snodgrass intends making by-weekly trips from
Okamigiiu Falls In tile mould of lhe
river at Penticton witli liis steamer for
the balance of the season, or rather
until the .close of navigation,
His excellency Land Aberdeen, will
be present at Ihe opening of Ihi
Okanagan and Shalliinicheeh Agricultural society's exhibition at Vernon,
nfter which he will visit tlie Westminster exhibition.
Contrary to expectation and recent views expressed, it, has been
decided lo carry out wholly and
not in purl, tile repairs to the
road around lhe ruck hliilf on Vusseaii
lake ibis fall. This news will be received with pleasure by the freighters
and others who have In lllilkfl use of
it, and should wt'le lhe long discussed
road ipiesijiiii al. this point.
Mr. P, B, Nelson, of the Heserviilion
store, was iu town ou Thursday lust
and paid 'tun ADVANCE a visit, and in
conversation denied lhe report circulated a few weeks ago, lhat Indians
luui been arrested fnr causing ii disturbance on bis premises. Indians

Very good idea of lhe geography of lho
counlry generally, hn has at least a distinct knowledge of the geography of
Camp McKinney, nnd can distinguish
charciial from the common garden coal
used in the steam engine of lhe presenl
day.   At least so report says.
Mr. Bropliy, who had charge of the
mill at Camp McKinney while making
its Insl inn on ore taken from the
shaft sunk bv the Butte and Boston
compuny, returned from Spokane on
Friday lust,'ind had hi company wilh
him Mr. Smith, a noted mining man of
Butte, Mon. The indications point to
the taking over of the property from
the old owners, the Cariboo company.
The friends of Colonel Forrester of
Slcamoiis, nnd their numbers are
legion, will be sorry to hear that, recently he was attacked with a stroke
of paralysis, which was somewhat of
a severe nature. Fortunately, however, medical assistance ivas near at
hand in the person of Dr, Powell, who
was passing lhrough Sicainoos on Ids
way to the coast, after having been in
charge of Dr, Morris'practice al Vernon, Latest accounts would Indicate
that tbe patient is progressing as
favorably as might he expected, Inking
into coosidei-alion his extreme age.
Tlie townsite of Okanagin, Falls is
soon to he embellished willi a Hue new
hotel, which is to lie built liy McSnoil-

established to lho various camps, Mr.
Norris took a trip over to Grand Praiiie
on Thursday and returned on Friday,
bringing with biin some line samples
of llu* grain grown there this year,
which is lining collected fnr the agri-
cnllural bureau and which, after being
exhibited at llie Vernon show, will be
forwarded lo the coast,
Mr, R. Wood and Mr. G. II. W.
Worn! came down fnnn Greenwood on
Friday, and on .Sunday started for
Ihe upper country, During their stay
on Boundary creek ibey have led a
busy life, and are enchanted wilh what
they saw in the dliferent camps, and
will, we are sure, return home loaded
not only wilh specimens of ore, Imt
with enthusiastic praise for tlie marvellous richness of ibe country in
mineral and other resources, As a
proof of their confidence in the future j
prospects of the country, lhey have
obtained control of Mc. Otto Dillier's
pre-emption claim, which is con- j
veiiieiilly siliinled at Ihe junction of
the roads leading In Copper, Long
Lake, Greenwood and other camps,
and which some day may lie a favorable location for a town, and Inform
a nucleus foe Ibe same we are given lo
understand that Mr. R, Wood intends
at once to build a since and hotel upon
the ground, and go generally into liusiness there, a fact which should give
pleasure to ninny.
By the excellent, character of the
programme nud thorough management uf former race meetings, tlie
Vernon Jockey club has established
for itself an enviable reputation among
all lovers of good sport throughout tlie
Northwest as also in this province. It
will therefore occasion no surprise
should the public lie told that it is the
intention of those having the affairs of
ibis flourishing institution in band
this year, lo make it nol, only equal
hul superior lo all other funnel events
of tin* kind. This will readily la
lie understood when il. is staled tliat
thai the principal races—the Ave furlong dash and lhe half mile trotting
and pacing—are open to and exclusively fin- two-year-old colls raised in
ill llie province, of which several, llle
progeny of Okanagan horses, are now
in I ruining at Vernon. The performances of these hopefuls should lie attended wilh a great amount uf enthusiasm, nol, only by the owners, but
by all Inlerested in lhe production of a
good class of horses, hiilh foe saddle
and for driving, and if the present
youngsters ucipiii themselves crcdit-
mIily llieir performances shuuld lie conducive to a stimulus being given to the
breeding of really lirst class stock in
the neighborhood. Who can tell, perhaps some day a horse will sally forth
from an Okanogan stud, lhat will rapture nut only home laurels, but lie
crowded victor at a Derby.

MINING   NOTES.

iiiigiin'ssuininer resort.
Mr. L. Norris, assistant commlssinnr
of lands and works, of Veriuiu, ciiuie
down un Wednesday ami will remain
in the district about a vieet, and will,
during his stay, visit most of Ihe mining camps, wil h the object nf looking
thoroughly into tlie question of road
facilities. The assistant cnminissioner's
visits are always welctuue ones, as the
outcome is generally (lie carrying out
of some public improvements, and iu
this respect we all hope that tliu
present visit will lie a particularly
fruitful one, us llie rapid advancement
of this section of count ry greatly depends iipiui n giiutl and efficient system
are iu a fair way of sellliug thru-differences, and sueh it is lu lie duviiiitely
hoped is really the case, for the past
method of working tlie mine lias been
of a very spasmodic character.
In Greenwood eamp Mr. J. Scliofleld
is assiduously striving witli all his
might and the assistance of a little
giant powdec, to turn the claim the
(trey Eagle into the golden eagle, and
no doubt ere long will do su, as hu has
formerly been very successful in disposing of liis properties when some*
what developed.
Mr. Vandeifoot. formerly the owner
of I lie G|en mine in the OtSlir de Alene
country, and which he sold for a large
figure lo the Finch syndicate, is now
sojourning 111 our midst, and his dose
attention lo matters pertaining to
mines and inining.is sufficient evidence
that he is here for a purpose,and something may be expected from his visit.
thai the Smelter at Gulden was lu be
dismantled and moved In Midway, an
Interview was sought wilh Mr. Fowler
by a representative of this paper, and
the assurance elicited that lie had no
idea of anything of lhe kind being
likely to lake place. The report is on
it pur with Blazer's communication lo
lhe Province, to the effect that Mr.
Fowler was instrumental iu erecting
lie smelter at Gulden, whereas that
gentleman did nothing more than
superintend its erection. As regards
lhe Gulden smelter, now tliat the.
mines iu its vicinity are receiving lhe
attention uf capitalists, it is only
reasnnalilu to suppose that iu tlie near
future It will fill (he sphere ofusefull-
ness fur which it was erected,
