CRANBROOK. B.C., SATURDAY, MARCH 28, WOS.
NO. 18a
A   LIHMUAL    DKFBAT.
Some True Kuru ami Statements
in Relation, tu The BJlectlonB In
New Brunswick.
Some people arc confused, and ask
nbutaer ilie elections in New Druns*
Wick  wore a liiiierul     detent   or not.
i tie oynic will reply, looking at the
o.uuuuon as it now is, tlml had the
i\..uit been otherwise it would have
been a groat Liberal victory. As tt
is,   it ik not ii Liberal defeat.
Leaving aside tin1 question of how
much the New Brunswick governments of the recent past were coalition governments, there is no doubt
that this paHt election was fought
out on party lines. It will be noticed that all statements that this
Is not a Conservative victory ure
based on Mr. llazen's speech aftei
tbe event, in whieh, like most winners, he says that he was supported
by men of both   parties. Similar
extracts could be made from the
speeches of Mr. Whitney ami Mr.
Roblin.
So far as tlie Liberal papers ol
the Marutlnie Provinces are concerned, their ante-election statements do
not bear out the present contention.
From this Ust should be left out
The St. John Globe, whicli opposed
the Robinson Government, and which
says that the result whicli occurred
in 1908 should have occurred in 1903.
That the Government was saved then
was because Mr. Blair intervened,
and because "thousands of Liberals
relunctantly responded to Mr. Blair's
wishes." In the five yeurs, The
Globe says, the burden hud grown
heavier, und Mr. Pugsley was not
able to do in 1908 what Mr. Dlair
did in 1903. There does not appear
to be much coalition in that.
But the papers which supported the
Robinson Government locked the
door and threw away the key, so
far as trying to talk uf a coalition
Kovernment later on was concerned.
Mr. .HuKsley, in his last address at
Sussex on the Saturday night preceding the election, is reported as
saying that the Conservatives were
whistling to keep their courage up.
The Frederlcton Herald said ou the
day before the election that the new
Legislature would meet on March
26th, with the Liberal Government
still in the saddle, but with possibly a new Opposition leader.
Throughout the election the battle
cry in certain constituencies was
"Two governments are better than
one"- whicli has scarcely a coalition
look.
Again,     nfter the    Gloucester election  (held  a day     in  advance of the
general     polling)     The    Prodorlcton
Herald said the  Liberals ol Glouces
tcr hnd decided that,   so far as that
county  was concerned,    local  politics
should he run on Federal party lines, j
The Moncton   Transcript a few days |
before the election predicted a sweep I
ing Liberal triumph,   and urged Lib
erals to rally in type that stretched j
across the front     page.    The     same
paper declared  later      that   the Tory
ticket   was  swamped      in   Gloucester,
while the St. John Sun said the Liberals     had closed their campaign in
confidence.     The Cninpbellton Graphic charged    that Mr.    Fowler   w'as a
Tory M. P., and that he led the party in the province.
After the election some Liberal
papers were still unconscious of a
coalition victory. The Montreal
Witness said that the t onservutives
had won overwhelmingly in New
Brunswick. The Ottawa Free l'ress
ground its teeth and remarked casually: "Well, if New Brunswick can
stand it, we suppose the rest of
Canada will have to stand hy and
see how the Tories can till the shoes
of  Blair,   Emmcrson and   Pugsley,"
The Moncton Transcript, however,
looks out to the future, and sees
this comfort lu the situation: But if
Ib useless to talk about the past.
The duty whieh lies before the Lib
erals of the Province is to prepare
for the future. The Tory party has
shot Its bolt in Provincial politics,
and In Dominion politics it requires
no prescience to either recognize or
atUnti that It will be weaker than in
the past."
In view of all this, it does appear
as if this talk about coalition gov
ernments and of the result not being
a Liberal defeat was simply an essay
In the art  of  "falling easy."

OF LNTKRKST TO FRUIT GROWER
Diseases To Whieh    Bush Fruits Art
Subject. And  How To Treat Them.
Unfortunately plant life is like an
imal subject to similar laws of disease and decay. The currant iB
affected by very few diseases. The
only ones which do much Injury are
the following: Leaf Spot and Rust.
The Leaf Spot fungus affects black,
red and white currants, causing
leaves to fall prematurely, and thus
weakening the bushes. This disease
is lirst noticed after midsummer,
when small brownish spots appear
on the leaves. These often become
so numerous that they affect a large
part of the foliage, soon causing
the leaves to fall. As the disease
often appears before the fruit is
picked it is difficult to see it if the
bushes are not sprayed until after
the fruit is picked. By using the
nmmonlacal copper carbonate the
bushes may be sprayed a week hemic it is expected, without discoloring the fruit, giving a second application if necessary. As soon as the
fruit is picked the bushes should be
thoroughly sprayed with Bordeaux
mixture. Experiments have shown
that tliis disease can be controlled
by spraying.
Currant, Anthracnose. — This disease which may be mistaken for the
Leaf Spot, affects different parts of
bush, including the leaves, leaf
stalks, young branches, fruit, and
fruit stalks. On the leaves It is
made evident during the month of
June by the small brown spots which
are usually smaller than those made
by the Leal Spot fungus. The lower leaves are affected lirst, and finally the upper ones. They turn yellow and gradually to the ground,
and when the disease is bad the
bushes ure defoliated before their
time. On the petioles or leaf stalks
tlie disease causes slightly sunken
spots. The fruit is affected with
roundish black spots which are easier seen when the fruit is green. On
the young wood the diseased areas
are light in color nnd are not noticeable. The wood is not nearly bo
much injured by the disease ns the
leaves. The spores which spread
this disease are formed in the pustules, the majority of which are under
the upper epidermis of the leaf,where
the spores are to appear the surface
of the leaf is raised und blackened
in spots looking like small pimples.
When the spores are ready to come
oat the skin breaks and they escape
and re infect other parts. When the
foliage drops early on account of
this disense the fruit Is liable to be
scalded by the sun. The fruit may
also wither belore ripening properly
owing to lack of food or of moisture
as the leaves having fallen they nre
unable to keep up the necessary supply. The premature falling of the
leaves prevents the buds from maturing properly, henee they are not
in as good condition to bear fruit
the next year.
Spraying with Bordeaux mixture Is
recommended as an aid iu controlling this disease. It would be wise
when currant anthracnose is troublesome, to spray the bushes thoroughly before the leaves appear. A sec.
ond spraying should he made when
the leaves are unfolding, and successive sprayings at intervals of
from ten to lourteen days until the
fruit is nearly full grown, and there
is no danger of its being discolored
by tlie spray when ripe, Paris Green
should be added to the mixture when
the lirst brood of the currant worm
appears. A thorough spraying after
the fruit  is harvested is desirable.

To the Stockholders of the Siillivnn Group Mining Company:
Last fall, owing to metallurgical
difficulties in the treatment of
its ores and consequent bad results at the smelter, our company
foutid itself loaded with a con'
siderable floating debt, it was
thought that better results could
be obtained by a change of
management at the smelter and
the coin puny ultimately relieved
of its embarrassments Such
change wus made, and at first il
looked like llin co-npany would
soon be relieved, but not long
after the change the price of lead
dropped v of a cent per pound,
and the old metallurgical difficulties renewed themselves in an
aggravated form, so that it was
found the compuny was running
further behind instead of relieving itself. On Ihe first of
the present month Ihe smelter
and mine were shut down as the
only sensible business thing It-
do. The company's indebtedness
approximates ahout 1(150,000.00.
This is for coal, coke, supplies,
fluxing ores and indebtedness lo
the bunks for money with which
to meet payrolls. The hitler
sum. aggregating about$24,000. •
00, was borrowed on the guaranty
of lhe President, Treasurer and
General Manager, and for which
they are individually liable,
A number of the creditors
have commenced legal proceedings against thecompany, and the
Trustees under tlie mortgage,
after consultation        with
the majority in interest of
the bondholders. have
felt compelled to take possession
of the property of the company
under the mortgage to save it
from dissipation and to protect
the bondholders. They have
given the coinpuny notice of
their action und that they will
proceed to sell the property unless the mortgage debt skull
have been satisfied within ninety
days,
The mortgage is for #400,000.-
00, securing that amount, in
bonds. ^255,000.00 of these
bonds ure held by the Federal
M in iug X'Smelting Com puny, uud
when lhe President of our com-
j puny was in New Vork ll couple
of weeks ago, the authorities of
that coinpuny mude 11 proposition
lo inke #178,000.00 nesl enncol
their limiil-. They did not suy
so. bul it is believed Ihey would
lake payment of the sumo in Installments ul t-easonuble in
toi'vals, The romiilning **l 17,
000,00 nl tlie bunds ure held by
1 various stockholders of llie cnni-
panv nud might be permit led   to
j run uniii maturity, or might be
paid nl! wilh slock ou a re-
organization of lhe compuny.
i We have mil consulted those
1 Ial ini'bondholders, bul feel assured limy have enough interest
In arranging tho affairs of Hie
company to submit to some Inir
uiul reasonable adjustment,
The company on 1111 adjnslmont
of its affairs uiil hnve coming in
it fop bounty from ihe Canadian
government ami from deferred
payments mi bullion,  probably
#12,000.00 to pay off the floating
'debt unil retire the bonds of the
™tto"'"0B Federal Cuinpaiiy. and to raise
this sum will require the stockholders In hu bin it to nu assess
j ment on thoir slock of   seven
ceuls  per  share.      We    submit
1 litis ncccsity In the stockholders
and request nn expression  from
each   of   them   nl   the   eiipliesl
moment  us lo his ability   and
willingness to shui'c  in  such  11
plan.
The principal pari of the sum
condition and is a valuable property. The mines have more
ore in sight today tliun ever bo-
fore i 11 Iheir history. The ores,
however, at present in sight, are
much lower in grade than those
developed in its early history,
and, owing to the presence of a
large percentage of zinc,' lire
much more dillieiih in treat, It
is estimated that there ure 150.-
000 tons of ore now iii sight it,
the mine whieh will average Hi ]
lead and 111 lo V ounces in silver,
a sufficiently high grade ore to
gives fair profit with lead nt
normal prices.
The ope in sight is nil abovo
the 100-foot level. An incline
shaft fifty feet deep bus been
sunk below Ihe Kill font level nnd
that is in solid ope. ilins proving
llie continuity of tlie ore in depth,
but. no levels hnve he-en driven
off from this shaft. • Innsmttchas
Ihe lirst hundred thousand Inns
of ore mined wus of high, grade
and the character of lhe ore in
the 111 iiie changes rapidly, there
is every reason In believe that
development of the inincindepth
will prove it to be u very great
mine und worth iniiny millions of
dollar'; and it is fnr lhis reason
that stockholders should make
every possible effort lo save tho
property for themselves. Should
Ihey do this, the policy should,
be to keep the works shut down
lllllil the price nf lead reeoveps,
but to spend n reasonable amount
in developing lhe property in
depth, thus throwing additional
tonnage in sight und of a greater,
value than thut now in sight and
from which the works have heretofore been operate*);'
The management feel that they
muy beoriticised by stockhplders
for allowing lhe affairs, of the
coinpuny lo reach their present
poslure bul ihey havi; givon
their time and attention without
charge und made many sacrifice*
in tlie effort 10 conduct the company properly, and liuve nl ull
times done what they have con
sideped wise nnd ppndenl. uiul
must, now that they have failed,
accept such eensnpe ns any man
may be disposed to visil them
with.
