A healthy sign of the manner in
which Vernon is steadily going ahead,
may ben 'lid from the fact that a local

formed there which has already begun
to do considerable business. It, is incorporated under the style of "The
City of Vernon and Okanagan District
Provincial llnilding and Loan Association," the board of directors being
composed of the following well-known
local gen;!,,i,-in : S. ('. Smith, president : W.T. shall' ii'd. vice-president)

CORRESPONDENCE,
OK A CERTAIN DEADNESS,
To the editor of The Advance :
Sin—The great "highway tn the
Orient," the Canadian Pacific Railway,
bus lately been "getting fits" at the
bauds of newspaper correspondents all
round in this favored province of Canada, while In England some misguided
individual lias been flattering the corporation in tho London Times as the
developer of the Northwest and backbone of the Dominion,and denying the
charges of extortion so frequently preferred by people, both in the old country and Canada. The writer of tlie
articles which appeared in tlie "Thunderer," wrote in a wide and imperial
spirit, but he could not have had a
thorough grasp of his subject, us, bad
he lived in our valley, he would havo
bud bitter experience of the "backbone of the Doininion,"so far us freight
and wharfage charges go. Mr. Vuu
Home, the other day, at Winnipeg,
said that the board of directors considered tho present rates as low as they
could be made, which may be the case
in Manitoba and the Northwest, where
the railway owns thousands of aires
of land, but it is far from the truth in
British Columbia, When a railway
company traversing a half-developed
country, takes advantage of its freedom from competition and screws all
tho money out of the people's pockets,
it is choking oil' greul future advantage to itself, in preventing tho growth
of industries and agriculture, The
electorate should nol rest until they
had shaken oil'this incubus of a monopoly. The power lies in thair hands,
and they either d il rare, or understand bow to use it, With all due res-
peel, 1 think the latter a sufficient
reason, ft is of this (loudness that I
have to complain. Is it tlie glamour
of tbe name of Sir John A. Mncdnnnld
or the fascination that a gigantic monopoly possesses, which causes Ihe electors to meekly rrnwl to the polls and
record their voles lime after lime for
the Government and—the C.P.R.? Do
they not see that it is the present Government whieb bus refused charters lo
ol lierrnilrotiilsin I he Province? Are they
in Ihe valley of 111" Lotus Eaters?
Between elections we hoar a greul, deal
of threatening nnd growling and big
talk, hut what does It amount lo?
Either a sneaking regard for the old
order of things, or a menial dullness,
causes tho major pari of tho population
to plump for the Government There
is n dewiness in everything in this
fair portion of British Columbia, a
deadly lack of interest ill tilings moral,
political, und religious, Every new
suggestion, every attempt lo do something for the good ol the district,
moots with Ibe same cold Indifference,
which is far mora fatal than strenuous
opposition, Ciuinol something undone
to shako oil' Ibis lethargy? I think
that an emancipated press will have
the most, influence in accomplishing
this. As yei, the few newspapers of
Vale district have shown a very hide,
pendent spirit, all hough in sonic cases
a   somewhat   mllk-and-watery ono,
1 would like u lillli ire strength and
fotirlossness, but all these attributes
will come in time, nnd I trust, the Au.
NANCE will mil. drug behind. As a
parting word I would say to every settlor, "if yon wish lo exercise the
power that is 111 yon, ascertain if your
name is on the voters' list, Aiid if it
Isn't thero. got it put ou; and when it
is there, und before the. elections coinu
oil', make up your minds whether yon
are going lo live under the old order of
things or whether your vote is to help
to usher in it new era of prosperity."

It is sincerely to he hoped that the
election in litis riding will not be
ju;p()gjjt down to the level of a third-
rate ward contest, Tlie point, to be
considered is riot whether the Govern-'
merit tdvo jtia'do this or that local improvement or not, but whether their
policy on the whole bus been for the
good of the Province at large, Official
appointments, roads and bridges are
certainly important matters, but the
general welfare, of iho Province is a
i|.,ll.i of 'much greater moment

lie more filly termed a' represent:!!ive

think tlujt updertho o\inco adduced, and Uio
argumetrtB addressed to us, only onu conclusion
is open Ions, and that is that tho arrangoment
for the construction of the Nakuspaud Sluctvn
itailway, which wud ratlflod by tho Act of 18M,
is moro advantageous to tho Provinco than tho
Aot of 18113, and wo havo had no difficulty in
arriving at that conclusion. But, however that
may be, on the lsauos more directly submitted
to us by tho Commission thorois, wo think, no
room for doubt, and wo and &.i follows, that is
to say.
Firstly! That the Honourable, tho Premier of
tho the Province, in advising the guarantee
mentioned in the said Commission, did not
work for the Company, but workod for tho
Provinco;
Secondly: That the statomc.nt made by tho
Honourablo Member ror Xan'aimo Distriofc, in
his place in tho Lcglslativo Assomblr, that it
apliearod thai tho Honourablo I hi! Leader of the
Gfovornment Inid been working for tho Com-
pany and nol rot1 Ihe Province is not true;
Thirdly: Thai no corrupt motives of any kind
existed wilh or influenced Your Honours Ministers iu tho advice tendered by them to Your
Honour iu relation to tho Nakusp and Hlocan
Hallway Company;
Fourthly : That nno.ioof Your Honour's Minister's has had, or has, any intorc^L, directly or
indirectly, in ''■"'
(a.) The S'akusp and Slocan Railway Company, or
(b.) In the Construction Company by which
Mich railway is being built; or
(c! In any contract by or with cither of the
Bam "Companies, either in furnishing -materials

All of which is respectfully submitted.

CRICKET AT KELOWNA.
Her Majesty's Rlrthday Suitably Celebrated-
Grand Concert and Ball In the Evening.
(From our own correspondent)
With everything in the shape of
weather that possibly could lie desired,
a good crowd of visitors, and a cricket
match (the best that has ever been
played hi this part of the country) the
21 th of May 01 will long be remembered
by all those who took part therein, j
The Aberdeen bedecked with flags and
evergreens brought visitors from Pen-
tieton as also the cricketers from Trout
Creek and was received at the wharf
with cheers. Before proceeding to the
wicket the home and visiting teams
fortified themselves with a good substantial lunch at the Lajce View Hotel,
provided by the Kelowna Cricket Club
and catered in Archie. Me Donalds best
style. 1 pin sharp the teams were
marshalled on the grounds by their respective captains E. B. Fttiilder of
Trout Greek and B. Crichton of Kel-
ownn.and the toss having been won by
the former he elected the home team
in first, Before giving thu score it
would lie well to mention that, the few
runs made clearly indicates how thoroughly on the wicket were the bowlers.
The first innings resulted In favour of
Trout Creek, which had the effect of
placing the homo I cam on their muscle.
As the second innings was likely to
prove a long one and tlie day wearing
on the homo tenm closed their innings
after running tip ii score of OS for four
wickets down, thereby giving the visitors a chance to retrieve their fortune
hi one hour's play. This they failed to
do. as the total number of runs gave
the home team seven to the good with
seven wickets to spare, Following is
the score:
Kelowna, 1st innings:—A. Ellis, li.
Wright, 1; B. Crichton, b, Wade, 2;
Attwood, b. Wright, 8; F. Ellis, li.

In tho evening a concert was given
by local talent, the proceeds of which
Wpro dftvoted to the' funds of the
cricket club, and realized/ about $00.
The hall was crowded to its utmost
capacity, a contingent from Vernon by
the moonlight excursion adding to the
numbers', and all those who were fortunate to be' present expressed themselves as extremely well pleased at the
programme rendered. Every number
was well received, and not ;t few re
cuived hearty encores.   After the con
hills and not the bottom lands, ij.il! be
made to grow fruit. Those who doubt
tin-fact that so called "eulttts" land
can lie put to good use should visit Mr.
milliter's orchard where all fruits including grapes grow and ripen to perfection on a gravel bench.
Years ago it was the general cry that
not a bit of land was left for settlement
anywhere in the Yale distriet. How
many pre-emptions have been taken
up since? Yet every day sees some

Vernon Notes.
(From our own correspondent,)
Vernon, May 28.—The Hon. F. G.
Vernon addressed the electors in Cameron's hull on Saturday 20th, Mr, P.
Ellison in the chair. The hall was full
and the honorable gentleman spoke for
two hours to an attentive audience,
He reviewed the political situation
from the Government standpoint, and
endeavored to show tho taxpayers why
lie should he returned again. He referred lo tho opposition candidate, Mr,
Donald Graham, and spoke of him in
tho highest terms. He also told us
how much the Government had done
for litis riding In the way of roads and
bridges. He referred to the finances of
tho provinco, to the redistribution hill,
the Nakusp & Slocan railway deal, the
Parliament buildings at Victoria, the
panada Western, and wound up by
referring to how much property he
owned on the Island and the Mainland and Vernon particularly, and
gave that as a reason why we should
return him at the coining election. He
received a good hearing, but there was
very little applause or enthusiasm,
Mayor Martin then took the platform and announced that it was not on
personal grounds that the opposition
were bringing out a candidate, but
against the policy of the Government,
and informed them that the policy of
the Opposition and the leading questions would be put to the people by
Mr, D. Graham, Mr. Cotton, and ol her
members of the party. After a vote of
thanks to the chairman the mooting
adjourned,
Mr. Donald Graham will visit your
section in about ten days.
The 24th was very warm here. Most
of the people went to Fnileiliy, while
tlie rest went fishing or pieknieking.
Vernon took first place in the bicycle
race, which was won by Jas. McLean.
The Vernon Gun Club beat tho Enderby team by 14 points. W. ]?, Cameron's Soiitag took first in the three-
minute trot.
As many anticipated, Mr. Ellis refuses to sign the agreement to build
tlie flour mill, objecting to some of the
conditions.
Tlie stable belonging to the Presbyterian manse, occupied by Rev. Mr
Langill, was burped with contents on
Saturday afternoon. But for the exertions of the citizens the dwelling
house would have' gone too, And stili
we are without fire protection,
The extreme heat of the last few
days has started tliu creeks to boom
and Okanagan lake is within a foot of
high water mark, aiid very high water
is expected everywhere.
A company is being formed here to
hydraulic ou Mission Creek as soon as
lower water comes,
Mr. W. R. Megavv is gaining rapidly
now, and I trust to sue him at the
council board soon, in the hone that
he will make some move towards lire
protection, ' E.
and lie is now obliged to navigate ou
crutches, but we hope to see him all
right soon.
G, L. Garden took an involuntary
swim in the Penticton creek on I lie
21th, and would have lost his horse
but for the timely assistance of tho
Rev. ilr. Green. This creek should lie
bridged, or a notice put tqi to direct
the unsuspecting stranger which road
to toko in entering this "Backwoods
Venice,"
Strawberries and Rattlesnakes
plentiful at Pole Mdntyre's,
II. would be a great convenience lo
settlers in Ibis vicinity if there was a
post office at the Falls,
The road fence through Kcoglnin's
ranch is nearly finished, Its completion will lie hailed wilh dolighl by Ihe
travelling public, who will' no longer
feel under an obligation by using the
public I'tiad,
I hear from a correspondent that Mr.
Snodgrass would have been here long
ago, inn, Iind lo return from Vancouver lo Oregon to attend to election
matters there, it is haul lo understand why a man who must have declared his intention ut least fo become
a British subject, when he was allowed
to handle a Canadian Government appropriation of $1,500, should take such
on extreme Interest in elections in an
alien republic, and therapy delay work
on tho public road bridge here,'which
he has contracted to supply \\ iih lumber. Perhaps Mr. Mara, the esteemed
representative in Ottawa for this distriet, can explain this matter.

Road Work Reports.
i Road Camp No. 1, May 27,—A word
from this section and the happenings
therein may not come amiss, On the
night of the 26th Inst, we were visited
by one of the most severs thunder
storms ever experienced by the oldest
fossils. It completely demolished Mr.
Mdntyre's stable, which, in its downfall, killed a dozen or more chickens,
The garden looks as though a herd of
Kansas razor back hogs had paid it a
visit. Notably amonjj the losses to be
regretted is the complete destruction
of the fine lay-out of strawberries and
other toothsome fruits,
Mr, Gallagher came into camp at
2 o'clock in tiie morning reporting the
waggon bridgo spanning the creek just
south of .Mr. Mdntyre's ranch was being washed away with the sudden rise
of water. Mr. Kehoe, Mr. and Mrs,
McCmldy and Mr. and Mrs. Denrdofl
took a waggon with chains and ropes
and anchored it fast, thereby preventing a heavy loss to the community,
and possibly averting an investigation
of Mark Hyatt's bridge. The road
is being pushed ahead, C. E, S.

lenty of Work Can lie Hone From Now
t'tiill gjirjiig,
During thu winter season all work
must be (lone under shelter, except at
such times as the weather may Ua twin
enough to draw the frost o.ut of thi.
ground and permit of doing souielbifsj;
in the field. Should such o^'irtuwt.vev
arise, thu farmers will not make ftH7
mistake by using the plow, aa it v»ilj
be a proper tune fur destroying in
sects, as well aa permitting the front
to get down into the soil and pulverize
it. Frost power is a great bona to tin,
farmer if lu- will utilize it, but many of
them do nut do so. There is plenty of
work in winter if farmers will determine to lose no tiino, and especially on
stock farms, In fact, there iB more
work to lie done with stock iu the winter season than in summer, and the
most successful stock raisers are those
who give their animals their whole ut-
tention iu winter.
How miiiiy farmers go to tho exponss
of overhauling the manure heap, yet it
is a necessity; for down in the center
of tho heap, anil near Hit) bottom, is
beat sufficient to permit of fermentation of th" materials, while uimt the
top tho heap is cold and solid. When
tlio time comes for spreading this
mature, one portion will lie coarse am]
useless, while the other will lie line
and well lotted. To properly manage:
the heap it must ho overhauled several
linns, tin: courses material placed be.-
low mid mixed with fresh manure and
liquids, in order to reduce it, Every
hour's work on tl>» uiuimrg heap is well
beslow.ed, aa thu farmer unu bring tbo
materials to ii condition toady ior the
iiiimudnte use of the crop, thus saving
time iu the spring, as thu manure po]
rotted now must first rot in th" dold b*
fore Ihe plants can utilize it. ffot Olltja
or twice, but a dozen times, if ueoss.
sary, should tlie manure heap be handle'!
during the winter so as to make as
much preparation for spring aa possible,

is the unique manner nf oonveying the

of these machines will enable a farmer
to work WW floras as onsily as he now

machine a trial early in tho spring. It

rheumatism. He has slopped work on
the Ir-nt) Mountain tunnel until next
August, as if is his intention to leave
for his copper and golclpropeityon the

The bridge over Kettle River built
by the settlers last winter does credit
to their knowledge of the art of bridge
building. II, lias stood the test of tint
bjr jams extending the full length of
fhe snap. The settlers keep a jealous
eye, however, on their structure, and
With axe and saw remove these tests
as quickly as possible. Some five
Stages a weeK, and an average of six
fejips ft (lay are using tin, bridge, without which the settlers of a large portion of Grand Prairie would be locked
up for months in the busiest season of

Should remunerate the settlers for this

(From our own correspondent.)
Al, last we have been favored with
the long looked for rain and fairly
good spring weather is now smiling
upon us, and we are being treated lo
Ibe song of the robin and Ihe meadow
lark, as they warble tho improved
prospects in their bill of fare to their
busy partners.
The water in Kettle River has risen,
under the influence of the combined,
force of sun and rain, to within three
feet of hist year's maximum height,
Tbe bridge near the boundary line has
so far successfully stood several good
sized jams of drift wood, whicli, after
a time were. Induced to continue their
course toward the Columbia. Whilst
speaking of this bridge, it is surprising
lo see the amountof traffic that crosses
it, antl one wonders how such an institution lias up to the present time been
done without, and makes only the
more regretful the lack of a bridge four
miles below this one, at the old crossing. The approach to the North Fork
bridge, with the rise of this water in
that river, is again getting in a bad
state, and once again travellers are to
have tbe pleasure of wading through
more or less mud and water. I have
heard a rumor that subscriptions have
to be raised to make the river road
from Boundary to Grand Prairie in a
fit state for waggons to pass over. If
this rumor is correct, and the road by
the river is made passable, then goodbye to most of the traffic that would
pass over the mountain road—when
made—unless this latter-day and glorious feat of our much beloved government^) should, revolve the natural lay
of the country. Nemo.
