VERNON, P.. (',
of the Government Fully Explained.
(Continued from lust, week.)
Continuing,  Mr.   Vernon   said,   it
would then be ttske:!, "what was the
policy of tbe present Provincial Government, us tho Opposition party had
none al, all ?  This could easily lie explained in one, sentence, viz.,  "the
opening up and development of the
country by money borrowed at a low
rale of interest."  It would bo much
easier for the Government to have no
policy, but simply to He dormant, as
the Opposition party advised, and draw
their salaries, while the departmental
work was carried on by tho permanent
officials,  There were numberless railway, litigation, dyking, reclamation
and other propositions throughout the
Province which could nol bo carried
through by private enterprise, but the
completion of which was most necessary to the vital interests of the conn-
try at large, and to these the Government proposed to rendor financial assistance by borrowing money to loan
to such enterprises,  They bad been
culled an extravagant government and
the Opposition party tried to make
capital out of this cry, and advised
"going slow."   It was, however
noteworthy fact that those who raised
thia cry '.vert! the first to demand local
public work and Improvenientsof every
kind,   In fact, in most districts people
were calling out for mire than the
Government could possibly grant them.
IF they were an extravagant government, us was claimed, how was it that
the provincial credit si nod higher in the
London market than six months ago?
The Government proposed to continue
to borrow money to help in the development of the enormous resources of
the Province, and were not bticiiward
in slitting so publicly,  Every member
of tho Government bad all he possessed
invested ill the Province, and he asked
his hearers to consider was it likely
that they would in any way wish to
injure their own interests?  It might
he asked, " what was the result of their
policy, what good did It do?" In answer
to this ha would simply say that settlement followed railway construction,
and the result had been that in the
past four years over 3,800 pre-emptions bad been taken up.  These people bad become taxpayers aud were
contributing to the wealth of the Province.   Naturally, people go to where
they bad easy access to the outside
world, aud the construction of the S.
k O. railway bad brought 830 settlers
into the Okanagan country,    Even
taking in to consideration that a number
would have settled in the district irres.
pective of tho line being built, still it
could be calculated (on the basis that
each settler was worth $1,000 to the
Province) that half a million in wealth
bad been added to the district by such
immigration.  The wealth contributed
to the Province by the construction of
railways, roads, bridges, etc, nioro
than paid the interest on the money
borrowed to carry such enterprises
through.
Mr, Vernon then entered into the
financial stale of the Province and
showed that the debt of British Columbia was a bagatelle compared with
those of the cities of Vancouver and
Victoria, In 18110 (at Ibe time of the
last general elect ion) tlie revenue of the
province was $835,403, and up to the
end of the present financial year (1803)
$1,020,002, and the estimated revenue
for 1804, $1,038,000. There bud been,
during this term, a total expenditure on
public works of $2,000,000, all of which
was paid for, Tbe roads alone were
worth more than $1,000,000, The gross
debt in 1800 was $1,707,820, and in 18D3,
$8,187,'158, II was stated that the revenue had fallen oft* since tho sale of
lands, but he could answer by slating
that il would have been very largely
increased if that system had continued.
There had certainly been a million
..Mod to the provincial debt, but the
Improvements worth doublet tho money
were I here to show for It, Amongst
oilier assets of (he Provinco waa over
$1,000,000 due from pre-omptors. The
Government never pressed I be set Her
for his money, but allowed him to pay
when lu, was in n position to take out bis
crown grant. In addition, there was
the Sinn   of  $150,000 due oil deferred
payments for lots on government town-
sites, These boro Interest at the rati'
of six per cent, The GoYcriiinonl also
held the Iirsl mortgage on many leaseholds of timber claims at the coast belonging to lumber mills. In many
cases Ibe full claim of tho Govoruuiont
bad not been pressed, owing to tho de-
depression in the lumber trade with
Australia and Chill, If Ihe sums due
were pressed for, several mills won! 1
probably have to bo shut down and a
number of men would be I brown out of
employment, The debt "f Vancouver
City was $2,000,000, and the rate of assessment 2 percont, thai of Victoria
1,000,000, with assessment at 1.1 per
cent,   The ilebl of .Prilisb Columbia
was infinitesimal compared with tbeso
sums, The Province must cither go
ahead or go behind.
The next subject Mr, Vernon tackled
was that of appropriations to this riding, ami enumerated all the expenses
of this district.   Taking iw near an ali-
stractos could be obtained, he stated
that the revenue derived from Shnil.
kameen and Osoyoos (including Kettle
River) was approximately $9,700, and
from the  Upper Okanagan $11,500,
This season the sum of $00,000 was appropriated for public works in the district, of whicli Ihe lower Okanagan received about one half.   If Ibe Opposition was sustained in the coming election, the people of this section would
soon find out the difference,   He then
pointed out that as far as unsatisfactory expenditure of local approprla
lions was concerned, hn personally was
not responsible for mistakes made bv
surveyors and local officials,   He bad
the whole of the Province to attend to
in respect to such mailers, and /ill lie
could do was to place them in the
hands of what he considered to lie the
best men, and trust to their abilily.
As soon  ns mistakes bml been found
out, they had been rectified, as in the
case of the Camp McKinney road. The
Government's intentions were good,
and such matters did not affect theii1
general policy.   Ridiculous mistakes
were often made by municipal governments,   The public should make some
allowance, and their displeasure at nils,
takes made by employees should not of
necessity be visited on the Government,
The Canada Western was the next
subject touched upon.   In regard to
tills undertaking the speaker stated
that the Opposition party appeared to
have    misgivings    that  some  great
scheme was in band, to whicli the Government had pledged their support, and
that the credit of the Province would
thereby be Imperilled,    A company
had been formed, whose object wan to
build a rival rood fo tbn C.P.R., the ter.
minus of which would be in Victoria,
and the Legislature, approving the
.scheme, bad guaranteed a land grant
of 20,000acrcsrt mile in alternate blocks,
Since the time that measure had been
passed the promoters had endeavored
unsuccessfully to float the scheme, the
public beginning now to understand the
nature of land grants In the northern
portion of tho Province, and that that
country could, not  support a large
population,   The question of guaranteeing the bnntls of the railway had
riot even been proposed.   It was extremely unlikely that the Legislature
would in any way imperil the credit of
the Province by so doing.   Al the pros.
Gilt time railway building in Western.
America had been over done.   Thu
C.P.R. was  reducing its expenses, al-
I hough  that line was heavily subsidized (its steamship snrviec also)by the
Canadian and Imperial governments.
The parliament buildings, that thorn
in the flesh to an upper country constituency, was next fully entered into by
Mr. Vernon, who begat) by asserting
that without doubt no subject had ere-,
titetl more controversy or caused more
irritation during the past four years.
Tbe Government, when they proposed
Ihe erection uf the new buildings, were
well aware what the feeling of thu
country would be, but trusted to the
sense nf |be people, who would ap
prove of the course adopted when, the
circumstances of Ihe ease were fully
brought to light.   Rjght minded people throughout the Province liad recognized tlie necessity of the expenditure.
It had settled the question of the location of the capital once and for all. The
old Government buildings were erected
in 1858, and were built nf wood and
brick veneer at a time when the Pro-.
viuco had not one-quartpv of its pros
cut population.   During the past four
years the buildings bad been gradually
rolling, and had had lo be fixed and
patched up continually,  The ceiling
had come down in his own offices his
departmental officials had had to work,
elsewhere, and Ihe same bad been the
case 111 oilier depai'tineiiUs.   LVyligbl,
could  be   seen   through   tht'in.   The
Legislature bad al one time in he ad-,
jiiui'iieil for two weeks, as the building
could not be properly heated,  Some-,,
thing had to be done.   II  Was thought
al line lime I hat hy building a land anil   ,.
registry office that the difficulty could
he overcame, but whop (be matter
came In be looked into il would be
found ilia!   Ibe building would havo   '
lo be entirely fire-proof,  It was also
evident thai other departmental buildings would be required within a year
or two.  Tlie plan of having a number
of scailct'i'd buildings was also nut sat-,
isfactory,   Valuable documents and
plans of all kinds had to be taken from
one. department to another in the snow.
and rain, aud the Government had,
therefore, come to the conclusion that,
to build a number of incongruous build.
ing? would  not  prove  satisfactory,
Tlie Legislature had, therefore, been
consulted, and the conclusion bad been
arrived at that it would be preferable.

that tbo rates ou merchandise from

of the Okanagan, The matter is more
Bll'njly local (at least I should consider
jioi yjjj.i tbji charges made on the
Ahecdepi). I have heard (whether
'rightly Informed or not) that $5 per
'ton has been charged for carrying potatoes a distance u» 25. miles i that $0 is
the regillar charge for the conveyance
of a liort.e from Okakagan Landing to
Penticton, although recently one man
is reported lo have shipped horses
from Pentictou to Kelowna at thu pate
of one dollar per hprul. These are
some of the incidents that ruffle the.
feelings of tbe patrons of this great
corporation. Ten dollars per ton on
merchandise is one tiling; ton dollars
per ton on variables quite another

Judge Spinks, accompanied by Mr.
Wade and Mr. Stevenson, of Penticton, passed through the camp on Wednesday, on their way to Osoyoos to attend court.
Mr. Tori'ence, who recently inspected

And will arrive as soon as traffic Is restored on the main line.
Constable Webster passed through
camp on Tuesday on his way to
Osoyoos, having in charge Miwbiinli-

charged with bringing into ,t)ie country a stolen race horse.
Messrs. Barber antl Linton paid the
.camp a visit last week, We are always
glad to see these gentlemen, as they
generally leave behind them something
to refresh the inner mini in the shape
of fruits, vegetables and dairy produce.
Last week Mr. and Mrs. Manuel Bar-
celo, of Kercmeos, paid the camp a

(result thereof. Many people visiting
Keremeos remember the kind hospitality accorded to them by these friends.

Camp McKinney, June 11.—Now
that Camp McKinney will soon have
communication with other portions of
the district by means of tbe trunk
road being built, another and still mure
pressing requirement exists in tlie matter of mail service. The camp possessed a monthly mail service, together
with tlie rest of the lower country,
until 181)2, when the post office was
moved to Fairview by Mr. Elliot. Considering that about seventy people are
now resident in the camp, employed di?
redly by, or makinga living Indirectly
from, the work done by the Cariboo
Mining Company, and that In all probability work on other claims will
double this number within a short
time, no doubt can exist that a post-
office is again required, A petition
bearing fifty-six signatures was recently sent to the authorities anil to
Mr. Mara, M.P.P., praying Unit one be
established. What is required is for
the mail to be made up at Penticton
and taken direct to Gamp MoKJuney,
or put 011 the Kelt In River mail route;
the bug could be taken up from the
mouth of Hock Creek,
Mr. Green, C.E., was in McKinney
last week surveying a ditch from the
south for* of Hock Creek for the Cariboo Mining Company. It was form-
eiiy surveyed for Mr. Douglas.
There are over 500 feet of tunneling
and 150 feet of shafting on tlie Cariboo
mine. The fcrmer is mostly at a level
of 05 feet. Tlie ore appears to be equ-
ally rich from the grass roots to the
lowest depth readied. Tiie mill site is
on tlie claim, and is nil that could be
desired. Tiie water is diverted from
Rice Creek, a small feeder of the south
fork, which is fed by springs the year
round.
The mill building is not yet completed, and the noise of the stamps can
be heard for a long distance,
A blacksmith's shop Is being erected
between the opening of the tunnel and
the mill.
Some eight to ten men are cutting
wood, making charcoal, etc.
Mr. J. F. Torrence, who visited the
camp a few weeks ago, made application in the recorder's office at Rock
Creek for the right to divert 300 inches
of water from Rock Creek at a point
some 300 yards frppi the Snowdon
mineral claim, fop the purpose of developing power for mining and milling
purposes. He also applied for five
acres of land near Rock Creek falls,
two and a half miles below the camp,
for the mill site,
The first claim for which a crown

Vernon Notes.
(From onr own oorrcBPqpdont.)
Vernon, June 11.—News from the
coast tends to confirm our worst fears,
The calamity that has overtaken the
people on and near the Frazer River
beggars description.
The assizes at Kanilnops had to be
put oft', as it was Impossible for the
Attorney-General and others tn attend,
traffic being nt a standstill, All uver
the western division of the 0, P. R,
everything is in a state of fatal collapse, as far as the running uf trains is
(joiictinied.
The storm of Sunday, 3rd, was the
worst ever experienced here, Fortunately, except to fences and the telegraph lino, no great amount of damage
was done,
What mail had accumulated at Kam-
lpops and Stannous' we received on
Sunday last, the same having been
brought to Enderby by  steamboat,
thence on to Vernon by JVflggon. This
brings us back to pro-railway days,
and revives tilil associations.
A public meet ing was held in Lumby
the 7th hist, in the interest of Mr. D.
Graham, Ibe Opposition candidate,
Notwithstanding the weather was very
unfavorable, a large number assembled,
the room being packed with people,
thus showing the great amount of interest, taken by the farmers in the
forthcoming election. Mr. D. Campbell acted ns chairman, and Mr. S. Mc-
Ilvane undertook the duties of secretary. Mr. Campbell, in a neat speech,
introduced the Opposition candidate,
Mr. Graham, in a clear and concise
manner, gave his reasons fur being in
the field in tho interests of the Opposition party. He took exception to tlie
building of the parliament buildings
during such bard times as at present.
Neither could lie agree wilh Ibe policy
of the Government in granting large
subsidies in what were virtually paper
railway corporations, anil denounced
the guaranteeing the principal and Interest of the Nitkusp iiiiil .Slocan Railway. Thi' Royal Commission he
looked upon as a huge farce,
After touching on all the questions
of importance, anil answering questions put to biin by Mr, Pratt, to the
entire of satisfaction of all present, tlie
speaker resumed his sent, receiving a
hearty expression uf approval from
those present,
Mr. McDonald, of Vernon, pointed
out Ihe fad that the Government
granted 20,000 acres of land per mile In
I he Crow's Nest Pass Railway, at the
same time refusing a charter tn .Mr.
Oorbin, of Spokane, wlm, without
seeking tiny assistance, desired to build
a railway from Marcus to Penticton.
Mr. D. Rabbitt, of Armstrong, next
addressed the meeting, and gave his
reasons lor being opposed to tlie Government, among which lie referred to
a pledge given by the Hon, F. G. Vernon, in Kamloops, in which the honorable gentleman pledged himself to
guarantee the bonds of the S. kO. railway to the amount of the actual cost
of construction, instead of which lie
gave his support to the guaranteeing
of the builds up to the full amount of
$25,000 per mile,
Mr. J. M. Martin, of Vernon, made
a short, pointed speech, showing where
the Government were more solicituous
for their friends than for the people,
and predicted the overthrow of tin
present administration.
A vote of thanks having been tendered the chairman, and Mr, L, Mornnd
for the use of his building, the meeting
adjourned,
Mr. D. Graham, accompanied by Mr,
D. Rabbitt, of Armstrong, left here on
Saturday last to hold meetings and to
canvass the Mission Valley, after which
they proceed to the lower country.
Mr. D. Graham is meeting with very
flattering success everywhere, more especially is this so in tlie City nf Vernon Itself. E.
HOW ROOTS WORK,
Kelowna Notes.
(From our own correspondent..!
Kelowna, June 11.—Mr. Wm. Duncan has returned from his trip to the
States, having had a prolonged tour
through California, Oregon and Washington. His statement of the depression prevailing in those parts of the
United States is about the same as one
reads nf in the press, and neods no further reference, Since his return he
has disposed of his twelve-acre block
in Kelowna to Messrs. Rose Bros., for
a good figure.
A. scow load of lumber for the Okanagan Falls Hotel was taken down on
Friday last, and two large rafts of lumber fur the same, building will go down
to-morrow. Tenders have been called
for, and the work will go on at once.
Some of the ranchers from Oregon
who came in lately have located on the
east side of Long Lake, having secured
good pre-emptions there. They had
intended locating on the west side of
Okanagan Lake, but found the other
far preferable, although there are still
some good ranches open un the west
side. Mr. Duncan lias located tine
there, and intends moving onto it at
once,
Tho water is playing sod. havoc with
some of the ranches in tlie low lying
lands of Ihe valley. Aiiinnlicrnf thoin
have lust their crops altogether, and
many have suffered ill a smaller degree.
The lake has not risen much the past
few days, lint the part of the town near
the lake shore is ahtiusl Impassable,
A ciinnc was taken a sliurt distance up
the main avenue by some of tlie boys,
11 just for a lark, you know."
Large game seems lo be very plentiful this season. Tiie McDoiignll buys
came in last week witli live large bear,
and on Monday they brought in four
inurti.-threo silver lips and one good
black tine.
The old steamboat, Okanogan is being thoroughly' overhauled, preparatory to having her machinery again
placed in her, and will soon be ready
for traffic on the lake. She was purchased some lime ago by Mr. \V. 1).
Oousnn, wlm is gelling her ready for
sea, but what he intends fu do with
her has not, yet transpired,,
The energetic rond master, Mr. D.
Nicolsiiti, is working html to repair the
damage done by the water, and as fast
as the flood subsides he is there witli
his gang to try and make the roads iu
good travelling condition, It looks as
if he will be kept pretty busy tlie balance uf the summer, for in some places
the damage has been considerable,
Some Interesting Fuiita Aimnt tlio Nnur-
Isliliig nf lMnnta,
The root has two offl as-first, to fix
the plant in the soil; and, secondly, to
absorb nourishment, To this might Iw
added that some plants also use tin
routs for store-houses of food on which
they draw in later stages of their
growth, as. for example, beets, mangels,
carrots, nml, indeed, most plants which
live but two years. During t',!.i first
year they accumulate nourishmeiit in
the root, most nl' which is expended in
the production of seed in lite second
year; but this feature is uut of general
application. That the runts secure the
plant iu the soil ia a Belf evident truth
which does not need demonstration.
Nor is it necessary to prove that tho
roots are the medium through which
tho plants are nourished. Thu point is
to know just how tit,'fond is absorbed
by the roots—whether the entire rout
mass is engaged iu this process or it
is confined to some special portions
of the root, and in what condition the
plant food must, be, in order to ho avail
able for assimilation hy the roots, ft is
couip u'ativulv oil.-.)' to prove lint plants
live ii.v drinking, rotliei1 than hy eating,
or, in other words, that they are fed by
absorbing water which contains tlio necessary elements ol nutrition in solution,
In early times,before tho bcIoiii f botany wtia understood, 1 tuou-risls i"'
iiovod thai plants fed on small particles
of soil, nml thai this was the ronsuii lot
the good i'l1-',its caused hy thorough
culture, slncH frequent stirring of the
anil divided il into small pari idea whicli
wore thus more readily swallowed ami
digested by tho plant, Thiatinllnu could,
of course not stand the light of investigation, since the roots li.ul 110 mouths ur
openings anywhere through which oven
the smallest particles cuuld pass. It
was, on tho other hand, evident that
plants f'd by somo process ol absorption,
sine n withered plant might be revived
hy merely putting its runts into clear
water, This is further proved by humor ing the young, active roots of a
plant in water in which sonic
coloring material has been dissolved. The roots absorb tho color,
which shows itself throughout the
tissue. Now, does this absorption
take place through the ends of the runts
or through the whole length of the
root? Investigation has proved that it
docs neither the one of the other. Tho
tips of the mots, nn has already boon
Btated, consist of a compact mass of
small hardened, cells, whicli tiro designed to pierce the soil when the root
is elongated by growth. These colls
are not situated for absorption. Nordoes
the older portions of tlie rout, on which
the outer covering lias becomo thick-
enen nnd leathery, take 11 prominent
part in feeling the. plant: This_ is
proved by thai a plant, having tho older
portions of the roots immerse I in water,
while the young growth is kept in tlio
air, will wither almost as fast aa if the
plant wns whooly exposed to tho air.
The absorption of plant food must,
therefore, take plncti wholly, or at
least chiefly, through tho young awl
tender portions of tho rout. A close
examination further reveals tho fact
that the young growth of the roots is
lnoro or less covered with very fine
fibrous apnoudngos which have been
called root-hairs, These hairs aro slender tubes with very thin walls, and
they constitute tho real absorbing surface of tho roots. Mnny of these root
hairs nre so small that they cannot ha
Boen without the old of n microscope,
They are simple projections of tlio
outer cells of tho rout, just as tho
fingers project from n glove-that ia,
they do not havo a partition at the base,
but open directly into tho cells. As
the root grows older, this outer layer of
cells becomes thickened and tho root-
hairs disappear and tho cells loeo absorbing power in proportion. This
explains why tbo older portions of
tho roots, covered with » thickened
epidermis or sort of bark, havo but
slight absorbing powors. At tho close
of the season of growth, when plant
food io no longer in demand for the development of new tissue above ground,
absorption ceases and the rout-hairs die.
Even tho newer portions of the root, become covers! with epidermis and the
plant becomes dormant until warm
weather the following jpring renews its
vitality.
That the roots feed on the soil, ns the
common expression noes, is really not.
correct, They feed on water contained
in tho soil which holds certain substances in solution.
The root growth depends largely upon
the fertility of the soil. It has been
observed titat when roots reach a fortilo
■pot they develop an enormous amount

For constitution and vigor the China

of geese which have been bred In Euro

appear to be us large ns tho Toulouse,
but this is accounted for by their plum
age being very close. On the water
tiiey move more gracefully than any
other variety. By some they have
been culled swaulike, 'ami they really
