are not by any means a controlling
(actor in tbe government of Canada.
Many, not all, but many employers
of ln,bor on tbe Pacific coast would
rather they became rich by handing
over their country to Orientals than
thut Canadians should live happily
upon its prodigious wealth. Such employers have been able to use the
great force ol the Uominioa government to inflict tbe curse of Oriental
coolie labor upon western Canada.
That is a very strong statement. It
needs proof. Well this is u heart to
heart talk. The necessity of proof is
us clear to one side as to the other.
Let us go into the proof.
PROOFS OF THK CASE.
British Columbia adopted various
expedients to prevent Orientals from
swamping their country, ln particular certain acts were passed which
prevented Chinese and Japanese from
working on government, works or
works assisted by the government.
These nets were disallowed at request
of the imperial government. But the
reason why that request was made
was that Chinese and Japs were designated by name. Here is tbe full

principle of British rule throughout

were unable to allow the Immigration restriction laws passed hy some

privy council of British Columbia,
expressing the concurrence of the goverment of thnt province in a report
drawn up by the minister of finance
und agriculture on the subject of the
acts passed by the provincial legislature in 1898, containing provisions
prohibiting the employment of Jap-
nnese on certain works.
2. The provincial government represents tbat theses provisions are required by tbe economic conditions of
British Columbia and they regret
their Inability to introduce legislation for their repeal.

appreciates thc motive which has induced tbe government and legislature
of British Columbin to pass the legislation under consideration, and recognize the importance of guarding

also to acknowledge the friendly spir-
DOMINION'S   RESPONSIBILITY.
Tbe responsibility of the Dominion
government was clearly set out in un
imperial despatch as follows; "The
whole scheme of the British North
America Act implies the exclusive exercise by tbe Dominion of all national powers* * " and the right of entry
Into Canada of persons voluntarily
seeking such entry is obviously n
purely national mutter."
The government could huvo permitted British Columbia to legislate but
it forbade the province to legislate
and sheltered itself behind the Imperial government in doing so. And tor
what purpose? Simply that all the
labor of western Canada might la-
done by Oriental coolies to enrich the
government's favorites nnd dispossess Cunudians.

admit or exclude the Japanese. It deliberately divested itself of that right

Smith Curtis, who hns shaken the
lust of Crnnbrook from bis leet since
the greut frost that blighted him and
bis the night of bis meeting here,
publicly promised early on in the
campaign that he would have the
Doll Ing day heiv in Kooienay on the
2(lth October if possible. Mark the
words, if possible. It has proved up
to the hilt tuat the pcrformu,n of his
promise was not alone possible, but
easy, It presented no difficulties
whatever, provided the Liberals
wanted io have it so. In a few duys
Curtis nnd his followers found that
l heir only chance of success lay in
postponing ihe election so thnt he
might hOjVC tbe possibility of the
Laurier government being sustained,
even though crippled in efficiency for
further evil, to buck up the failure of
his personal appeal to the people.
CURTIS IS A FAILURE. He and
those who shout with him know it.
Know it too lute. But when ull this
dawned on him, hey presto, he backed out of his public promise und retreated to the 3rd November. Later
on, to gain another respite from the
fate that shall be his, he retreated.

You need someone in Ottawa, nn the

tbe depth ol the trick, since Sir Grit
will work, at the expense of his own

Whnt about the attitude of Smith
Curtis towards the Japanese? In January of last year Sir Wilfrid asked
the parliament of Cunadu to ratify
bis action in making the Dominion a
party to the treaty between Great
I tri tain and Japan. Parliament did
su, it hud to do so because Sir Wilfrid had a majority of sixty-live to
enforce his will. If elected Smith
Curtis will also have to assist in enforcing the party will. The only way
to prevent this is to send a strong
opposition to the houso of commons,
a united representation from llritish
Columbia will force Sir Wilfrid to

Investigation  and  observation     ol !
the conditions and comparisons of re- |
suits Indicate tlmt among the factors
responsible for the wide variation in
results, care und cultivation nre Important ones,
While this paper is intended to doni
Linly with thene factors nnd conditions as they are found in the apple
orchards of the unlrrignted lands, 1
hop* no one will assume nny intention to ignore other factors that enter into the prohleiu. or other conditions that make n radical modification t'f methods, both in euro and cultivation.
Conservatism of moisture is i\ matter of vita-1 importance in any orchard dn unirrigated land, anywhere in
the inland empire. Broadly Npeuking
this may best be done hy having the
ground rough and loose from October
to April; firm and fine from April to
October. Very late fall plowing,
where pmcticable, is the first step towards .securing this. Where thc late
plowing is not practicable, going
over the ground in November with a
disc nr spring tooth harrow will
roughen or loosen the surface so the
soil will readily absorb thc rain und
snow of winter. I'low early in the
spring, before the weather becomes
warm enough to cause any material
loss of moisture. Plow deep. The
nerntion of the soil, hy increasing the
amount of available plant food, will
more than offset any damage to the
surface roots. Disc two or three
times to secure subsurface packing.
(Mod-crush, or roll to break up all
lumps und make the surface into a
fine dust. Finish wltn a tine-tooth
harrow. Never leave a rolled or
planked surface for nny length of
time without harrowing; continue tho
harrowing throughout the season often enough to maintain a fine dust
mulch on the surface all the time.
Harrow after every ruin us soon as
the ground is sufficiently dry that it
will not stick mfter the hnnow tooth.
If the soil runs together, bakes or for
any reason gets so hard that the
spike-tooth or acme harrow will not
line it, then put on the disc and clod
crusher. Continue this until the last
week in August. This method of cultivation solves the weed problem,
and saves the moisture, and is check
against apple scab.
Where the soil runs together when
wet, hakes hard when dry, and breaks
up in bard lumps when plowed it is
reasonable to nssume that it is deficient in humus or organic matter.
This is a condition quite commonly
found where it hns been cropped for
many years. Where barnyard manure
is available, it Is the best remedy for
this condition. If the manure Is not
available, then use a cover crop, preferably the winter velch (Vicla Villo-
sa>, broadcast; this the lust of August, or drill in with u disc drill when
a cover crop is used, the plowing can
he delayed until Mny, when the green
crop is plowed under, and then thoroughly disced, to firm the soil, drive
out. surplus uir, chop up and mix the
green slut! with thi" soil. Then keep
up the harrowing and maintain tbe
dust blanket. Work over tho entire
surface.
A common mistake is to leave an
uncultivated hloek four to six feet
across around each tree. In plowing
turn the furrows toward the tree one
year and from the tree next year.
From April to Oct. keep tbe ground
as nearly level as possible. Harrowing with ai spring tooth harrow crosswise with the plowing immediately
after plowing aids much in levelling
the ground.
ft is much bettor to train a tree
the shape it. is Wanted than to allow
it to grow wild, then chop and saw it
into the desired shape. My proper
pinching of buds ami bending of limbs
during the growing season a tree may
be grown into such shape us to require very little cutting during the
dormant season, if the sprouts starting from tho body of the tree along
the main branches are pinched when
they uri' three or four inches long
they will ordinarily form fruit spurs.
Aim to get more fruil buds near tho
body of the tree and nlong the larger
limbs Instead of at branches. As col
or in an Important facto!', care should
bo OX etc I Hen to keep lho top open, so
the rays of tho sun can reach to
overy part nt Home portion of the
day. To accomplish this it may be
well to do some pruning, when tha
tree is in full leaf; cutting ton or oven
fifteen per cent, of the top nway when
the tree Is in full leaf will cause no
injury.

Continued from page 2.
over during the growing season, und
the ends of those shoots that are
glowing too long are pinched off, the
tree may be kept to tlto desired shape
but where the root bus been overlooked it is better- to cut it out when
found than to wait until winter. Negligence during the growing senson is
about the only logical reason for severe winter pruning.
Severe pruning while the tree Is in
u dormant state stimulates more rapid and abundant wood growth, about
lour -fifths of which will grow where
it Is not wanted, necessitating yet
more cutting the following season.
Pinching and summer pruning stimulates the pioductioji of fruit buds and
ti nils toward the better maturity of
both buds and fruit. Plan to grow
an abundance ol fruit spurs, well dis
tribiited over the whole tree.
Tlto soil and climatic conditions in
the inland empire are so favorable for
fruit production that there is a gen
oral tendency to set more fruit than
the tree cun curry to perfect maturity, with the result thut unless the
fruit is thinned radically the apples
will be uneven iu size and some will
bo too small for profitable market
ing. Uniformity in size, shape and
color is u valuable factor in a fruit
crop. This can only bo secured by intelligent and radical thinning. I huve
never found anyone who thinned too
much. Many never do uny thinning,
und some wait too long before doing
the work. Of those who attempt
thinning the majority do not take off
half enough. The thinning should be
done when the apples are about one-
half to three inches in diameter, leaving only one apple on a spur. Sometimes it is better to also pick all thc
apples Trom every other spur. Tbe
thinning should he done in such a
wuy as to leave the fruit evenly dis
tribittcil over tho tree.
Mr. Smith also strongly recommended thorough spraying; good fruit
cannot ho grown without it but the
spraying must be done right, lie
concludes:
"The man who does the most thor
ough work is the one who reaps the
largest pi-rct-ntuges of profit. I huve
can-Lilly studied the question for 80V
oral years; visited tho orchards that
paid as high ns $1000 per acre; nlso
those that paid less than $2G per
aero. My observations have been
that tho man who expends from $15
to $25 per acre in the cure and eulti
vatlon of bis orchard would get are-
turn "f from $2uil to $10(i0 per acre,
while the man who spent less than
that usually reached the conclusion
that, fruit raising did not pay."
