A CONSERVATIVE CANDIDATE.
The Conservatives of Kootenay will
not have to look far afield to find a
candidate that can he elected  In the
coming campaign.
'i'he Prospector takes pleasure in
publishing, what It believes Is the
desire of every Conservative in the
Kootenuy, and that is, that W. A.
Maedonald of Nelson be the Conservative standard hearer in the coming Dominion elections. No other
candidate would be so acceptable,
and in our opinion Mr. Maedonald,
should be nominated by acclamation
.i he will consent to let his name be
placed before the convention.
"A  SURE THING."
In Kootenay, Conservative leaders,
think that there is every prospect of
a walk-over for the party in the
coming Dominion elections,
it is this spirit that will animate
delegates when iu convention they
present a united front in behalf of
W. A. Muedonald of Nelson. This
province wants men of the type of
Mr. Maedonald, Martin Burrill, and
such us we tind in the McBride government, to represent this provinc'
iu tlie House id Commons, instead
of the political tricksters and poll
tlcians nf the "Big Seven" calibre.
Nominate W. A. Maedonald, and it
will be perfectly safe to guarantee
his election,
BASEBALL IN  CRANBROOK.
It is announced that a baseball
league bus been formed in this city
and the hearts of the fans and rooters have been mado glad, Three
teams have been formed, and some
excellent games, no doubt, will be
seen on the diamond In Cranhrook
during the season. A long and ambitious schedule has heen arranged,
and thero seems to be no doubt but
that some of the leading cities and
towns in the district will send teams
to compete for championship honors.
BUSINESS AND PLEASURE
A Large and Enthusiastic Gathering
of Loyal Conservatives in the
Edison Theatre
VISIT   OF   PROVINCIAL   ORGANIZER
THE Young Men's Conservative
Association liuve commenced in earn-
.bu to prepare for the coming Dominion elections, und the large and enthusiastic gathering at the Edison
Theatre on Wednesday evening was
an indication of tbe active and aggressive part which this organization will take in tbe future political
history of this district.
lue meeting on Wednesday evening, which by-the-way, was one of
the largest und most enthusiastic
ever held in the district, was the
tirst regular meeting of tne Association, and combined business with
pleasure, during the evening's work.
The social part of thu programme
heing something new in the political
line, something that will unite and
create a continual interest in not
only the political work, but that of
itteuding each and every meeting of
the association.
ihe meeting was promptly called
to order by tbe chairman, Mr. Vic.
Rollins, who, before the work of the
evening was commenced, invited
those present wbo had not signed the
membership roll to come forwaru
and do so. Twenty-six young and
nctlve and energetic Conservatives
responded. We might say that Mr.
Rollins, as chairman, is alive to tht
fact that tbe business of the evening
should i proceed as rapidly as possible
that no waits, for committees to
report, always tiresome to those
present, but had a list of social
functions at hand, which he immediately called into action, the work
und pleasure of the evening always
proceeding rapidly, thus creating a
continual interest iu tbe programme
The result, as expressed by all pre
sent, being an interesting meettak
from beginning to end.
The records of a previous meet ini
held at the Royal Hotel, for tht
purpose of organization, was read
und on motion of Messrs Cavin an<
Jumieson, adopted as read. Th
secretary, Mr. E. Home, is an enthi
lustic worker in the Conservatlvi
cause, is up-to-date in politic*.
..flairs, and assists the chairman 11
rapidly pushing forward the necesBb
ry work of the evening.
Mr. G. W. F. Carter, chairman c
the committee on voting lists n
ported progress, and announced tha.
as the lists were completed from da,
to day, typewritten copies were be
ing made for the use of tbe assoch
tion, that over 250 names of voterb,
all good Conservatives had bee*.
placed on the list.
Mr. Wilmot, of the entertainmet.
committee also reported, and ga*
to the chairman a programme fo.
the evening, which was most accept
able and highly appreciated by thos.
present.
Un motion of G, T. Rogers, secretary of the senior association, a
committee, consisting of two fron.
the senior nnd two trom the junio:
association were appointed to attent
the Court of Revision, when thi
voting lists are revised.
The chairman, then introduced Mr.
L. S. Eaton of Victorin, provincia
organizer for the province. Mr.
Raton is employed by the executive
of the Provincial Conservative Asso
ciation. His work is to so organ
ize the party throughout the prov
ince so that it never can be taken by
surprise, but will be ready at any
time to enter on a campaign with
accurate knowledge of its strength,
and also the strength of the politi
cnl enemy.
Mr. Eaton, said: "That he bad
covered three of the seven ridings in
the province. In the ridings of Victoria, Burrard, and Yale-Cariboo
the organizations were being perfec
ted as rapidly as possible, and that
the party's prospect of victory in the
coming elections amounted to a certainty from the efficient work now
being done.
Tbat he had not expected to find
such interest taken, or active work
ers on coming to Cranbrook. That
.he work as laid out, and the organ
iiiation was the most complete in the
province, not excepting the big
cities at the coast. That the field
was being well covered by the enthu
stastic and efficient local association
and while this was true in u great
degree iu other ridings, it was es
pecinlly so in the Cranbrook riding
Mr. Eaton congratulated the chair
man and members of the Crunbrook
association on the social part of the
programme, that it was a revelation to him, and be wished tbat the
executive of the different ridings
could just get a "look in" and see
how matters were conducted at
Crunbrook, if they could, tbe te
suit of the coming campaign wculd
never be In doubt.
Mr. J. A. Harvey, K. 0. then addressed thu meeting. He eongrutula
ted the young men upon their very
creditable association which 'hey had
formed. He said:"That the firing
line was the place for the young and
ardent Conservative worker, while
the old men, the senior association
could and would provide the sinews
of war, the young men must and
have to bear the   brunt of tbe hard
work. Mr. Harvey then gave a
brief history of the Conservative
party, and the McBride administration since taking over tbe reins of
provincial government.
A  SOCIAL SIDE  ISSUE.
Messrs Marshall and Corbett of
the Edison Theatre presented a
.series of moving pictures, which
were instructive, interesting and
amusing.

lalf of the voters of British Columbia.

THE KOOTENAY"VALLEY.
An    Ideal    Place    Por   The     Home-
Seeker    To    Locate.
The valley of the Kootenay, contains large areas of farming lunds
which are unsurpassed in fertility of
any soil aud general advantages by
any other part of the province, and
can at all times furnish a home market for all that can be raised by the
farmer, rancher nnd fruit grower,
'he country too, has an abundance
f wood for fuel, building and commercial purposes, aud plenty of pure
water everywhere. The   mountain
ides and foothills are covered with
xtensive forests of pine, tamarac,
and fir. The lumber industry has
assumed immense proportions, and a
ready market for this production is
found in Alberta und Saskatchewan,
and a large amount is being shipped
to Chicago and other points in the
United States.
The future prosperity of the Koote
nay valley is assured from an indus
trial point of view by the existence
of many falls on the rivers and
streams which will be utilized with
advantage in the creation of ecoiio
mieul power when the development
of tbe district takes place.
In the mountain ranges, on either
side of tho Kootenay river are
found many mines in all stages of
development, from the recently located prospect to the developed and
dividend pnying mine. The mincrnl
resources of the Crunbrook district
nre unsurpassed. Immense areas ot
toal and iron, large silver-lead
mines in active operation, extensive
placer deposits, copper and free-
gold properties, which will In the
future employ hundreds of miners,
furnish a home market for all that
can be produced on the farm. Every
thing in the Kootenay valley is in
proper keeping for the developing of
the combined physical and mental
energies of the miner and the farmer
The Kootenuy valley nnd the Cran
brook district is un ideal place for
the home seeker to locate.

Mr. Edwards stated tbe reasons
why the game of this district should

that game which was in abundance

would increase.
Dr. J. H. King, addressed the

Marysville, Wardner, Wasa and Fort

honor of being their representative,
something I shull appreciate all my
life.
Wishing you success and bespeaking for my successor the same sup

good government and the building
up of a greater Canada,

"Big Bill's" toga is hanging on
the wall, can the Liberals find a
candidate big enough to till It? F.

Simpson, the old man of Cranbrook
tried it on there would be nothing
in sight, only a voice, like one crying in the wilderness, "ram Independent" yet the toga of Kootenay
Ilill should come to me.
The Young Men's Conservative

Apples, Then Variety, Cultivation,
drafting. And The Locality Best
Suited For Productive Growth.
The  apple   is   the      most   important
oal useful fruit in all civilized parts
»f the north temperate zone where it
an be grown success!ully, while
other fruits are, m a greater or less
degree, regarded as luxuries, the
apple Is part ol our regular diet aud
much would this wholesome and delicious fruit be missed were we uuu-
ble to procure it.
Tl limn   ol   the    cultivated   apple
is wrapped In mystery lt is sup-
It I.  however,  that      it  had its be
emmiiL' ia the wild apple of Europe
Hut there is im evidence tu show
iiieii the Improvement began, nor
trhen the fruit reached the sine, color
ami quality ol what is regarded as a
good apple today. It is known,
however, that at tin- beginning uf
lhe Christian era, the Romans eul
tlvuted a lew varieties of apples
whicli might compare favorably with
-imu' that are t:rown at    the present
ti  Although   the       apple   is   men
tloned iu Holy  Scripture many years
prior   to     that     period,        it   is     now
thought   that    the  word   referred    to
Mother fruit,   or other    fruits,   and
ot what  is now called an apple.
While   the   range       of   silecessful   dilate ul  many other fruits is compar
lively      limited,       the apple    has a
ery wide one in tlie     temperate, cli
mates     o|  tbe old and  new     worlds
ami is able to accommodate itself to
conditions   under    which   many   other
en Iti va ted   fin its    would   not    thrive,.
It   is,       however,    in  the    temperate
part  of   America   where   it   reaches the
highest state ot perfection, and
where    there is   an ever   increasing
area devoted to tliis fruit. Nairn*]
varieties ol apples are very numer
mis.   being,   probably,   over 2.600 in
number, so that every taste, no
matter how eccentric, may be satis-
lied, and a selection made of those
best suited to a particular person or
placu. It is a very attractive fruit,
the red und yellow, which are the
predominant    colors,     vary  much in
hade and prominence. No other
fruit, probably, has so long a season as the apple. By a judicious
selection of varieties; apples maybe
had in good condition the whole
vein round, and now that the system of cold storage has been so perfected, some ,,i tbe best varieties,
which, under ordinary circumstances
would not keep until spring, muy be
had iu good order late m the lollowing   summer.
The profits from apple growing
muy he large or may be small; much
depending on the varieties planted,
the markets, ami most of all un the
man and his methods of growing
this fruit. Some varieties begin to
hear paying crops when five years
planted. Most ot the best sorts, do
not bear heavily for ten years or
more. Tbe profitable life of an up
pie tree will     depend greatly on the
Itmnte it is grown in. the culture
given, and the variety. There are.
however,   other    factors which intlu-
nce it.      In the hest apple districts
I America, profit ft ble crops are
gathered from trees sixty to one
hundred years of age.
INTRODUCTION  OF  VARIETIES,
Many varieties of apples have beeu
tested in Canada and the Cnl ted
States since these countries were
tirst settled, and during the last
century, especially the number hus
increased very rapidly. These have
either been introduced from Greut
Britain and Europe or have heen originated in America. It has been
found that a much larger proportion
of the varieties which have originated in America, are profitable sorts
to grow than of those from other
countries, and iu Canada are much
the same, except in the very coldest
part of the country, where apples
can be grown, and there the Russiau
varieties take a predominant place,
hut this is probably because the
colder parts of the contry have not
been settled so long, and hardy
seedings of value are. on this account,   not so often met with.
Of the apples which are succeeding
best at Ottawa, nearly all the most
profitable summer vurieties are ot
Russian origin, but most of the
hest autumn and winter sorts originated  in America.
MINERAL  FLOAT.
Cold is the only deity before
which  universal man has ever bowed.
There seems to be no doubt but
that the Cranbrook district has a
great future, and some day will
rank with any of the minim; towns
in the province.
A large amount of ore is blocked
out iu the Sullivan mine ready for
sloping.
Tlie business men of Cranbrook are
wide awake to the best interests of
the mining industry of the Crunbrook  district.
It is reported that the government
has shown a disposition to eitend
the bounty on lead. We truut, in
the interests of the silver lead mines
nf this district that Ihe report has
some   foundation.
Snow in the mountains, and au
early sprini: has made glad thr
heart of the placer miner in this
district.
Nothing will more tally conserve
the interests of the mining industry
than the application of correct meth
ods in securing capital for invest
ment. and tbe development of mines
ia this district,
The absence of adequate transpor
tation tends to make tbe work of
development, mi prospects, slow and
expensive in Ibis district. Till-; PROSPECTOR, CUANUROOK, B.C., AI'KII. ll, lit"-

"Tlicr's no doubt that the eltction

with lots av fun un' oxcltemint an'
no end av chewin' th' rug. As
usual the Ottawa machine will tnko
ml vantage uf Kootenay's situation,
which is midway between the North
Pole and the Equator, to formulate
;i theory that it is isolated, without
uny telegraphic facilities, an' therefore to hoiil th' olictlon in that section av th' the Dominion about a

imcherlly figger that they hnve

well enough that their eandydute

Btands a show tu win if th' eliction

" I cannot help pityin' the un-
forchunate Grit that runs in behalf
av the Laurier administration, in

disthrlct in th* nixt eliction. He
will have tu perjure his very sowl tu
make excuses fer th' Laurier maladministration an' will alwuys face
th' nightmare av crushin' defeat.
His qualifications must be extraordinary. He shud be able to combine a religous attitude with an
ability to lie like th' dlvil. He muBt
be a raand hand at niakin' excuses.
His sowl must he wreathed in calm

Editorial    Comment,
The Cranbrook Herald has the reputation of being fair to those who
differ with its editor's politics. The
editor of that paper is a Liberal because he was born n Democrat. Because he is a Liberal, he does not
take kindly to or like anyone who is
apt tu crack the political head of
the candidate of that party in
Kootenay at the coming Dominion
election, nnd lie sneers at Rill Davidson of Sandon, who has been nominated by the Socialists and Lubor
men. He suys: "Bill quit work
"when he went into politics (he was
"elected to the legislative assembly
"in 1903), und has never shown any
, "inclination to go to work since."
Will the editor of the Crnnbrook
Herald tell the readers of his barndoor sheet how mnny days' work
"Rig Rill" Galliher has done since
he wns elected to parliament, in
December 1900? Empire, Prince
Rupert.
Jolin Houston has given fair notice to the Grand Trunk Pacific not
to monkey witli bis mineral claim in
the tuu ii uf Prince Rupert. That
claim is liable tu become the most
notorious one on the continent. John
haa already allowed thirty of his
friends to squat on it rent free. The
surface uf the claim already assays
high in tin cans, bottles, egg shells
and tin' tail ends of halibut. LedgO

Both parties in tho Kootenay

may have been worked in Manitoba once, but it is doubtful if it

We are inclined to think that tho

have an opportunity of sending
in ii personal report of its
