Members of Sorrento and Blind Bay
Cricket Club Hear Report of
Last Season's Doings.
The general meeting of the Sorrento
and Blind Bay Cricket Club waa held at
the S.and L. Fruitlands camp at Sorrento
on Saturday last, March l��t.
Mr. J. R. Kinghorn occupied the chair
and there waa a good attendance of
members and others interested in the
Mr. E. A. King, the secretary-treasurer, gave a report showing that the
cricket club.although formed late in the
season of laat year, waa to be congratulated upon the headway it had made.
Two matches were played, both with
the Salmon Arm team, the honors being equally divided.
The residents of the' lake front had
taken an active'and practical interest
in the club, and the concert recently
given at Blind Bay had also materially
helped the Anances.
The club possessed an almost full
equipment of the necessary outfit, with
a balance in the hands of ths treasurer,
and everything pointed to a prosperous
season ahead.
The following officials were elected
for the year.
Hon. Presidents: Hon. Martin Burrell,
M.P.; J. P. Shaw, M.P.P.
President: J. R. Kinghorn, Esq.
Vice-Presidents: Messrs. W. Syson,
B. C. Clifforjl, J. Reedman,  and the
Rev. Grice Hutchinson.
Captain: A. Salter.
Vice-Captain: F, SySon.
Secretary-Treasurer: E. A. King.
Executive Committee : R. Duckett,
_._ .B____fifl\ W, llinTwaH, S.  F.. St.
George, C. E. Vernon and R. Reid.
Selection Committee: A. Salter, F.
Syson, E. A. King.
The membership fee was fixed at
three dollars.
The question of u ground was discussed and it was decided to approach
the Kamloops Trust Company to obtain
the rental of their meadow at the north
part of the Sorrento townsite alongside
the lake, this being probably the most
suitable ground in the neighbourhood,
and being ideally situated.
The secretary was instructed to arrange fixtures with Salmon Arm, Kamloops, and other teams in the district.
It was proposed and carried that a
general meeting be held the last Saturday in May to consider the holding of a
regatta and sports day in .connection
with the club.
Mr. Kinghorn, the president, kindly
promised to present a bat to the player
obtaining the highest batting average,
and a ball to the one with the best bowling average.
A letter from Salmon Arm in connection with tho B. C. Light Horse was
read, but the feeling of the meeting
was that at present it was not advisable
to attempt the formation of a local
Other business of a routine nature
was dealt with by the meeting, which
concluded with a vote of thanks to the
secretary, and also to the president for
tbe excellent manner in which he had
performed his duties in the chair during
the evening.
The committee beg to appeal to all
the sportsmen of the district to help
the club in its endeavour to promote
sport and healthy recreation among
them, and the secretary will be glad to
receivo the names of any wishing to become members.
Amendment to Game Protection Act
Introduced By The Attorney
the game laws, as recently amended,
provide, among other things, that it
shall be unlawful for any resident of
the province to bunt animals or birds or
to carry firearms of any description, or
air guns, or any device for the purpose
of capturing any animal or bird without
first taking out a licence. In addition
to taking out a licence hunters will be
required to wear a badge showing the
number of their licence. These licences
will not be transferable. Any breach
of the act involves cancellation of a hunter's licence.
Licences will not bt issued to boys under sixteen except at the written request of parents or guardians, who
shall undertake that such boys, when
carrying firearms, will always be under
their supervisionjor that of some responsible licence holder.
There are three classes of licences: an
ordinary to carry firearms and hunt
birds and deer.other than moose, wapiti
and cariboo, costing $2.60; a general,to
hunt game, birds and animals, $6.00;
a special to carry firearms and trap, $1,00.
Holders of general or special licence
within fourteen days of date of expiration, return the licence to the provincial game warden with a sworn statement of the number of each species of
big game or animals trapped.      ",
Prospectors having a free miner's
certificate may obtain ordinary licences
during the open season, while actually
engaged in prospecting: so may farmers

Law Lords of the Privy Council
Make Decision in Pemberton
Ranch Law Suit.
The decision given by the highest
court in the empire confirming to Hr.
J. H. Kilmer tho possession of the
Pemberton ranch is of interest to this
section of the country for other reasops
than for its bearing as a legal precedent. It is the settlement of a dispute
that has stood in the way of the development of more than two thousand
acres of tbe finest fruit land in. the province.
The Pemberton ranch is situated on
the north side of the South Thompson
river, directly opposite Pritchard. It
consists mainly of a level, fertile bench
fifty or sixty feet above the river. Irrigation is easy. There is no clearing
to do for the property is bare of tree
or bush. There could be no better proposition for subdividing.
The water for irrigation will come
from Niskonlith Lake, a considerable
body of water on the north side of the
South Thompson River opoosite Shus-
wap. With a plentiful supply of water
the Pemberton ranch, or Sunnyslde,
it is called, will support a population of
a thousand or mure. It is a safe prediction that the next few years will sec
a rural population of ten.thousand within fifteen miles of Chase.

The entertainment for the benefit of
the Turtle Valley School, arranged and
directed by Miss   Hutchinson, was  one
of the best affairs of its kind it was
ever our good fortune to attend.    Unstinted praise  and  congatulations  are
heard on every hand,  and taking into
consideration the hard work and patienc*
entailed in tlie training of the children,
and the short time at her disposal, no
enconiums are too lavish for the wonderful results achieved.
.The splendid adaptability of the children, not one whwn. had jrobal^y_-ever_
faced M-fiudience  larger  than  their
parents, was worthy  of  the  highest
praise.   Songs,  recitations, dialogues,
duets, quartettes aud glees, followed
each other in quick succession, the versatile chairman, Jim Craig, nearly causing a fire by the friction raised between
himself snd the chair.   A serins of tab-
leaux, flag drill,  choruses, etc., were
well staged and beautifully executed,
and the glorious, patriotic Canadian anthem, "The Maple Leaf for Ever," wss
rendered by the scholars in first class
style.   To discriminate on one particular turn where all was so good, would
be impossible, but we must mention the
names of Rene and Lulu McBryan,little
Rita Baillie and the infant prodigy of
seven years, Henry McBryan.
The Turtle Valley Philharmonic rendered Miss Hutchinson efficient aid, the
members of which contributed largely
to the enjoyment of a big audience.

really good dramatic effort in I'The
Face on the Bar Room Floor"; Miss
Hutchinson, in a comic recitation, "The
One Legged Goose," gave the necessary
artistic touch and elicited rounds of applause.
Miss Gertrude McBryan officiated at
the piano, 'and Messrs  Jim   Baillie  P.,.
and A, McBryan, were responsible for
the violin music.
Mention must also be made of the
able manner in which Mrs. Fred Coburn
and Mr. Lonnie Brooks seconded the
efforts of Miss Hutchinson.

An old grain merchant who had lived iu Winnipeg for-twenty five
years, had watched the growth of u metropolis, an'' had incidentally
become a millionaire, once gave to a^ypung friend some lulvicejon Inlying real estate.

There is no town in the west where real estate is ns low as it is in
Cliase, when you consider the advantages. There ure reasons. Chase
has never been boomed. That is one reason, But there ure others
that have more effect. The Dominion lands in the vicinity have been
withdrawn from entry ever since tlie town began. Largo ranches of
irrigated land adjoining the town have been kept off .the market.
There is prospect that they will be open-in the near future. This
is oue retarding condition that will be removed.
These lands as at present worked are producing for the owners
less than two per cent, on the value of tho property. They can afford
to hold until they Hud the right purchaser, but when he arrives it will
mean subdivision und an influx of the^best kind of population.
If your property in Chase appears low iu value for a town with an
ideal location and all modern conveniences, it is just your time to buy
some more and hold it., A sucker buys at the top of the uinrket.

fn the surrounding country is a growing population of farmers

a close packed settlement will give a further impetus to a prosperous
and promising district. Next we expect to Lear of a townsite at
Pritchard being registered.
The next thing in order is the subdivision of the Shuswap bottom
lands and a townsite at Shuswap. The Sorrento townsite is already on
the market. Then within twelve miles of Chase there will be ut least
three towns, each backed up by a population of thrifty farmers, or

Pritchard needs a wharf for the convenience of those who wish to
ship by water. There are doubtless many such. It is up to the peo.
pie of Pritchard to let their representative at Ottawa know their needs
in this respect. The Department of Public Works would then doubt-
less ask their engineer for u report on the matter and if he reported
favorably would grunt the request.
There are residents of Pritchard in the Chase Central Board of

they could conveniently lake action.
