McBride  and Goodeve  at  Cranbrook
All is Ready for Fair Day
Tuesday and Wednesday will   be
big days in Cranbrook
Preparations on a Large Scale have been carried out
and no expense has been'spared in making
the Fair Grounds the Finest
in the West
To « stranger, ay, even to tunny of
our townspeople an they loo'c up
Uaker street and observe the alterations thnt arc taking place on tht;
hill west of the city, wonderment is
expressed as to what is being done
and what aim the city has in going
to so much expense. Though heiped
by the city this is no city work my
friend and in a few words we will
try and tell you what the Cranbrook
Agricultural AHBojlation are cluing
und what preparations they are making for n miWHsful fall fair.
To this end the "Prospector" representative made n visit to the
grounds and looked them over.
CrosHing tbe station track and taking the old path thnt runs alongside
the well known baseball grounds the
lirst thing that wa I plainly to be
seen is the splendid roadway the government are making and specially
grading to leading up to the fair
grounds. Many people there arc
who have painful recollections of the
old climb up the hill by gome one
hundred or so steps, and for rigs and
automobiles the awful roads, many
a remark too hot and undesirable to
be put into print has been expressed
when the entrance gate was at last
reached, tired and breathless.
stops are done away with, the government have graded the road to a
gentle slope and the association have
provided a splendid entrance. While
walking along this drive and looking
to the left yott are lost in wonderment at the Ae the city has grown
to, Back of. and around the city
laying snugly upon the slopes and
running between the Baker and Moyie
mountains and by the Selkirka at
this Bcason of the year is a country
side the Cranbrook people can well
be proud of, not a'one for its pic-
tureBqueness but also for the many
sections laid out for small fruits of
nil kinds clearly indicating the faith
of the dwellers in this part of the
country as    a fruit growing centre.
As one stands and looks the smoke
can be seen rising up among the
trees afar off from many a smoke
stack where prosperous mills are
hard at work.
The city itself as saen with last
year's eyes waB in many parts very
sparsely built upon; now, residences
and stores, warehouses, etc., are erected or in course of erection—the
whole city appearing to he a regular
beehive of Industry, A splendid recollection for our visitors to carry
away with them of the prosperity
Cranbrook iB enjoying.
Turning to thc entrance there Ib
to be observed on the left ample provision made for thc automobiles and
other conveyances to drive up to und
enter thc grounds by a separate entrance to thc pedestrians; abundance
ol space Ih provided for all vehicles
to turn and pass each other in any
direction without Interfering with
anyone in nny way. For those
whose inclination prompts or perforce must go on foot there is an
entrance gate as you turn to the
right, good accommodation is made
for everyone to obtain tickets without being crushed by the crowds of
visitors who will be there,

Dr. King at Fort Steele
Br. King, accompanied by a numb'
er of Cranbrook citizens went to
Fort Steele on Thursday night to
hold a meeting In the interest of the
Liberal candidate, Br. King.
B. Watt was chairman, and introduced Br. King. The doctor was
listened to with attention, hut, aa
was said after the meeting, that he
made no converts to reciprocity.
The climax came at the close of
the meeting when Br. Watt proposed
three cheers for the King, our King,
he said pointing to the doctor. But
there was no cheering, the audience
leaving the hall in silence.
which J. B. Murray of the Kast
Kootenay Produce Co. at his own
expense lias erected for a permanent
Emporium in which to exhil it their
general commercial merchandise. To
the right cnn be observed the imposing exhibition building that, when
finished will have cost in the neighborhood of   $5,000.00.
This building has a ground floor
space of 150 feet by 50 feet divided
into two end squares of 50 fret and
the wings of 40 feet, s] ace is also
provided for a secretary's otlice
where every information concerning
the district can be obtained, This
floor is being divided into further
sections to be reserved for the exhibition of fruits, vegetables, commercial exhibits, school exhibits, etc.,
A wide staircase in thc centre of the
building leads you up to the second
floor this is 50 feet square and
around tho sides arc tables provided
for the ladies' exhibits, such as needlework, fancy work, etc., also paintings. Prom the centre of this still
further rising is a tower at tbe apex
of which is a flagpole crowned with
a ball 12J inrhes diameter. The
special feature of this flagpole is that
it reaches higher than any one to be
found in the Kootonays today.
In a separate building nearby is
to he seen the spacious dining hall
where the inner man can receive its
wants. A grand stand is already in
position from which to view the races, the track is second to none in the
country; also a hand stand from
where the city band can discourse
their sweet strains of music.
In another part of the grounds
there are special houses provided for
the poultry and cattle, as also some
lifty stables for the horses, the old
buildings are being utilized for these
hut renovated and repaired, and generally brought into proper shape and
Many of the old nnd delapidated
buildings that were always an eyesore to every observer are removed,
the fence around the old grounds are
taken down and new ones erected to
enclose the new section of ground recently bought in by the Association,
thus making a total size for the fair
grounds of twenty-three acres.
For the enterprize shown and the
energy exhibited in providing for and
working out such a fair ground with
the present spacious accommodation
the committee In charge are to te
congratulated. The accommodation
and comfort of every visitor is being
well looked after and it is to be earnestly hoped thnt old Sol will provide splendid weather so that the
people of Cranhrook and visitors wilt
by attending the fair, show their appreciation of the efforts made on
their behalf.
It is not to he overlooked that
there will be NO betting or gambling
allowed on the grounds in any wny,
shape or form on fair days.

When Mr. Cnven opened the meeting,     Mr. N, Addison of Oranbrook,
presented Mr. Caven with a handsome bouquet from the railway men,
"The men that wear overalls."
Little Miss Louise Elmer presented Mr. Goodeve, with a bouquet, and
l)an Howe, in thc name of the old
time "Trail- Blazers" h n.Ied another bunch of flowers to  Mr.  Goodeve.
Miss Elmer also gave tho premier,
Hon. R. McBride, a boquet of carnations.
The front of tho stage was decorated with a handsome banner, bearing the words, "Vote for Goodeve,"
"Goodeve for Canada," the centre
being a scroll. When Mr. Goodeve
rose to address the audience, a centre piece was dropped showing "A
lion on guard, standing on a pyramid of flags representing every colony fn the British Empire, with tba
words, "No annexation," "What wj
have, we'll hold." This was a
most artistic design, painted by B.

applause was loud nnd continuous.

A quiet woddlng took place at the
residence of Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Wilson, on Wednesday evening, when the
Rev. Dunham united in the holy
bonds of matrimony Mr. A. C. Blnin
of Crrnrrook, to Miss Lil in Baker of

In the Canadian rami aim for reciprocity. Senator Goro lift Lawtou
today for Canada and will remain
until the close of tho campaign.
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen,—When I noticed the reognition
that my colleagues wore able to enjoy tonight in these magnificent presentations, at this time I
feel as though perhaps some
part of the evening cere-
Imps some part of thc evening ceremonies might be completed without
nny participation of mine; hut 1 am
glad to know that my friends, thc
peoplo of Oranbrook, have not forgotten me, and this beautiful presentation speaks uf the go.-d will of
the residents of this city and community. I hnve the kindliness recollections between the residents of this
constituency nnd my colleagues.
Mr. Caven may not be one of a
profession, he may not be in the first
sense a captain of industry, t.ut wc
know thnt in British Columbia that
he is a mnn of efficiency and highly
qualified in regard to the rospi risibilities of bis olllco. I would like to
say that, while Mr. Caven en.oyed a
largo majority in the election a few
months ngo, t hope that Mr. Goodeve will enjoy a larger majority In
tliis presont contest.
Tho issue for settlement, on Sept.
Zltst refers entirely to national affairs nnd wo nro bound to acknowletl
go that tho greater importance must
attach to the one that pertains to
thfl affairs of the state, | have had
the pleasure on two occas'ons today
to hoar Mr. Goo love, the Conservative nominee for this diatrict, speak
on the question of reciprocity. Mr.
Goodeve's record is no longer con*
tained in the four corners of British
Columbia. He stands in a position
second to none in the opinion of the
members in the halls at Ottawa,
(loud applause.) It was acknowledged by Liberals, that the member for
Kootonay was and is a going man In
the national political area and as
strong as he was some years ago in
the good cause for which he s.ands
tonight asking you to send him back
with more power than he enjoys to
night.  (Cheers.)
I fancy, Mr, Macdonald di.l not In-
[ tend it to be taken seriously by tho
electors of this district when ho said
i that the reciprocity pact might    he
i considered    because    it    would turn
; transportation north and south    in*
j stend of oast and wost.     If we study
the geography of this country       we
find wo are blessod  with  many aril
Hcinl  menus of transportation.     We
have built railways oast and west to
bring trade Into Canadian towns nud
In order to bring about British Pre
feronce, which is the object wc want
io achieve.     Speaking of reciprocity
If we view the hearts of tho people
of the presont day, I think f am not
making a wrong st.oteine.ut whon     I
sny, I believe tlio people ara not    in
favor of reciprocity.     'Ihorfl was    a
time  when  WO should  have been  glad
of tho American     markets.     Thank
I heaven, those days aio past, ind   wo
I are     independent,  of   the     American
| markets.        Why     sir,  I  submit tho
j present problem  to the Hound Jttdg*
I ment and common fcnsc to the people of Craubrook, which wlll )      am
sure permit    of     only ono solution
'which you will give    on    Soptembcr
21st, when Mr. Goodeve will enjoy
tho confidence of a large majority,
which I have asked you to glvo him
this evening.
There     is no question about what
our candidate has said in regard to
agriculture  in     these  parts.      It  is
proposod to permit our neighbors to
] the south to compete with thj farm-
» ers of our own land.     We know what
iii difficulty it Is for the farmers    to
make a fair margin of profit now. If
you propose to cut thh from them,
1 sny you mean ejectment from British Columbia to every farmer. You
'strike a very fatal blow to the home a
| of Hritish     Columbia and the grass
Will grow in the street:.     Why    tonight     while 1 am     addressing yo.i,
Hon.  Mr.. Templeman In   Victoria is
probably telling    an    aud Ic nre there
that if reciprocity passes, thoy   will
be able to get things for the house
hold much cheaper.    Tho agreement
and     story of    tho cheap breakfast.
What dr( we find taking place in Quebec,     Sir Wilfrid     Laurier has been
tolling thorn that reciprocity wlll be
a larger market and a higher price.
Dr.  King tolls im that reciprocity

gloomy silence. She dropped tbe morsel she wns raising lo her mouth nnd
rose from the table, tilled with dismay, her appetite completely gone.
Tears of disappointment followed the
realization of what tbe failure of their
plans meant, for neither had doubted
that bis request would be complied

in tbe air on the strength of It. A few
dollars more a week added to their
distressingly small Income would have
meant much to them. But, gazing at
her husband sitting tbere utterly dejected and crushed, her heart went out
to him In pity and love, nnd she moved
over to bis cliulr and put her arm consolingly round bis neck.

"What, Jlmsy''" she asked.

"Well. I'm Kind for Jlmsy's sake he

ing this most annoying trouble is because they net directly on tbe blood,
reaching the root of the (rouble and
driving out all impurities. They
banish eczema, suit rheum, and unsightly pimples and eruptions, relieve
the irritation and itching and give
perfect health, Mrs. A. Puling, of

which the doctor called eczema, but
which did not yield in the least to
bis treatment. I was covered with

boxes I was completely cured. I can
strongly recommend the Pills to anyone suffering from that trouble."

Fact. About a  Little-Known Spot In
thi Empire.
' Ocean Island lies only 52 mile.
joulh of the equator, and in full rush
Df the equatorial current, which,
streaming across tho mid-Pacific from
i cast to west, runs past the island with
a varying strength of from one to three
miles an hour. From the early years
of the last century the island waB a
well-known calling-place for whaling
ships, which came there to buy "hogs"-
antl to diversify the monotonous sea
rations of their year-long cruises. But
although these visits were no doubt
fairly numerous, says a writer in
Blackwood's Magazine, any lengthy
stay at the island must always have
been impossible, since there iB no an.
chorage at which even a modern lull-
powered steamer can lie with any degree of safety. Steam must be kept
up all the time so as to leave at a
moment's notice, even though these
vessels are moored to the splendid ser-
ies of buoys whicli are now within two
oables length ot the reef and in 206
iathoms of water.
There are at present 475 aboriginal
inhabitants, the remains ol a population which only forty yeara ago numbered over 1,000; and they are the
owners of an island which, although
only 1,500 acres in extent, had a total
trade with the Commonwealth ol Australia alone valued in 1908 at £314,000,
and which in that year exported one-;
twentieth of the whole world's supply'
| of phosphate. Probably no richer is-|
I land of the same size exists; I am
1 sure that there is none more curious.
| I flrst visited the place in 1896, and'
| found it in the occupation ol a purely:
I native community. All communication
with the outer world was then re-|
stricted to the occasional visit of a
j Sydney steamer, which called in passing to buy shark flns and tails lor
export to China. The day was fine,:
and the sea (lor Ocean Island) slight,'
and I well remember the natives com-,
ing off in their canoe with bundles'
of shark fins, and their extreme anxiety to exchange their murderous-look-,
ing spears and swords edged withi
sharks' teeth for glass bottles, withl
which I suppose they shaved them-|
selves and cut each other's hair. j
The men were a fine athletic race,
wonderfully clever in managing their
outrigger canoes, and rather dark inj
color when compared with the Gilbert
Islanders, the result of their constant
exposure to the equatorial sun while'
fishing, clothed with but a scanty kilt
of grass or pandanus fibre. They spoke
the purest Oilbertine, and are beyond)
question members ol that race; their:
tattooing closely resembled that of the
Gilbert Islanders, with whom I wa»|
well acquainted. Since the current
was strong, and it was impossible lor
us to anchor, the vessel stood "off
and on," while the barter of shark
fins for "trade" waa in progress, and
I only landed lor a short time at the,
village ol Uma, on the southeast cor-!
ner of the island, at a spot protected)
to some extent by a point of the reel:
upon which an enormous ocean swell)
was breaking. I little thought as I
walked about among the curious natives, followed by a troop of delight-,
ful-looking clamorous children, that,
under my feet lay wealth beyond tha,
dreams of avarice, and that in 13
years' time I should again visit the
island, to find railway!, electric light;
aud telephones installed, and to sua
lour or live 6,000-ton steamers waiting
to carry away the very ground on
whioh I stood. In 1896 the last whita
man who lived on Ocean Island a
relic of some dozen who once dwelt1
there—had died, and there waa noi
European left. In 1908 there were 80
white employes of the Paciflc Phosphate Co., 350 Japanese, and some 700
laborers of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands, besides the 470 aboriginal na-'
tivel who still survive.

It May Bs a Msss of Steal Seme 5,580
Miles In Diameter,
Various conjectures buve been made
from time tu time by geologists aa to
tbe possible condition of tbe center of
tbe earth. One of tbe most popular
Impressions seems to be tbat tbe
earth's center, or core, Is a flaming
furnace. At a meeting of tbe Sets-
mologlcal association ut Tbe Hague
Professor Welcbert asserted lhat bis
studies of tbe vurylug velocity of
earthquake tremors passing through
tbe Interior of tbe globe buve led blm
to tbe couclusioti tbut tbe earth consists of a ceutrul core ot Iron or steel,
about G.MO miles In diameter, surrounded with a stouy shell 030 mllea
In thickness. Between tbe outer solid
rind nnd Ibe Inner layer of rock, covering the metallic cure, be tbiuks tbere
Is a layer of liquid or plustlc material,
lying a Utile less than twenty miles
below the surface or the earth.
Men sometimes dream of enormous
wealth stored deep lu the enrth below
tbe reach of miners, but experts now
aver tbnt there Is little or no ground
to believe that any valuable metallic
deposits Ile very deep lu tbe earth'i
crust regardless of Professor Wei-
chert's beliefs tu the contrary. Such
deposits, It le suld. ure mude by underground waters, aud owing to the pressure uu tbe rucks at great depths tbe
waters ure confined to u shell near the
surface. Wllb few eiceptlons ore deposits become too lean to repny working below 3,000 feet. Nine mines In
ten, taking tbe world as a whole, are
poorer In the second thousand feet
than In tbe llrst thousand, und poorer
yet In tbe third thousand than In tbe

To Stop Hiccoughs,
Simple cases of hiccough are often

It is the custom of Swiss mountaineers to hang bulls on the necks
of their cows, and so accustomed and
attached do the animals become tu
these bells that thu duprivatiun of
them is felt as a punishment. If any
cow has been guilty of straying or
unseemly behavior, a breach of discipline or any vicious trick the dis*
pleasure of the herdsman is not testified by blows, but by temporary de*
privation of her hell, and thia seldom
fails to reduce her to order and to
prevent a repetition of the offence.

The play has been exploited in all
parts of America and has Won the
highest praise from the Leading critics of two Continents. It is a comedy containing more unctions than
any other modem play. Mr. David
Brattstrom, who plays the part of
"Yon Yonson," is the greatest living
Swedish dialect actor, and he keeps
his audience wondering how he maintains a dialect character with such
i>ase throughout three acts.
The story of "Yon Yonson" is
simple, and practieully perfect. A
Swedish inventor, on his death-bed,
leaves, with his young son and baby
-laughter, the drawing of a saw mill
machine that is to revolutionize thi
business, The inventor's employer
in order to obtain thc patent for
himself, adopts the girl and has the
boy shipped off to a Swedi h family
in an isolated part of North Dakota,
where he grows up to m:«nh od,
practically an immigrant Swede. The
play deals with his return, as a laborer, to the place of his birth,
mooting with his own sister i>nd the
man who has robbed him, without
knowing who they are. The plot
furnishes several charming bits of
pathos, thc most realistic log-Jam
scene that has ever been seen in a
play, and nn iniitimeralle numher of
laughs that the audiences go away
fatigued from shere laughter.

Mr. Brattstrom, and those who attend thc performance next Thursday
will be repuld for their time and expense. The sale of seats begins on

To the Editor of the Daily News:
Sir—Dr. King unconsciously delivered a somewhat damaging 1-lo.v at
the reciprocity pact lat*t night, 'lhe
point be tried to make was that all
the Brith h Columbia industries
would he directly benefitted by the
pact and he went into details re^a-.d-
iug fisheries, mining, coal, coke, lumber, etc. With regard to fruit growing he was discreetly and significantly silent, Why? Fruit growing is
admittedly the coming industry ol
West Kootenay so far ns the development of the land Is concerned, if It
gets a fair chance and yet the very
man who desires to protect our In-
erests in pnrliumint says nothing at
ill about it.
Again, in speaking of land values
Jr. King seemed to suggest that
with reciprocity in working order
these would go up. They are ln all
conscience high enough already for
some of us, hut what Is it that gives
them their present value ? Funda
mentally it is the demand for fruit
land. Once the margin of profit for
the fruit grower ls cut into by American competition when the duty is
thrown ol! it is surely au simple as
A B 0 to show this wlll lessen the
demand for land and bring land values down with a run.
M. A. Macdonald of Cranhrook,
made a somewhat amusing "treat."
Speaking of the advantage under the
pact of being able to buy cheaper
horses, he said in eflect: "you cannot bring iu horses from Alberta
cheaper than you can from Washing
tou with the present duty on, be
cause the Alberta farmer simply levels up his prices tlii they cotnclda
with those of the Washington txoTBi
raiser, plus the duty," How would
Mr. Macdonald put this if ne were
addressing a meeting of Alberta farmers ?

Mince speaking uu this platfofra 1
am more loyal thnn ever If possible
1 have come tonight t,P speak to you
on the great responsibility which you
have placed upon me.
No doubt I llttVe mnde errors, it
is human to err and divine to forgive,     We nre striving for one great
aim, for the glory of tho empire,
Since coming on this platform
there lias been hnuded to mo a verbatim report or the Liberal meeting
of Satur.lay, and there ure one or
two paragraphs I would like to call
attention to. The one I notiee is
that our Conservative friends have
spread a banner across the street,
Goodeve for Canada, which should
have been (Joodeve for the I'nited
States, The other, we hnve our
Conservative friends bringing forward minor topics, such ns the eight
hour bill. It may be a min >r topic
but how can it he when it effects the
workingmen of Canada.
It Ib said thnt our Conservative
friends criticize the attitude of the
government, they tind fault with the
government for the eight hour bill, I
am not going to discuss this a<
there are more important topics to
consider. I notice ()ur Liberal friends
nre not anxious to go into the his-
►ory of the Liberal Oi vermnent.
I urn quite prepared and w 11 dis
cuse tonight this (.-rent question of
reciprocity In ail its phases, I venture to say it Is our duty to view
Lhe past as well ns thB promises of
'he future. The Minister of Finance
has been opposed to almost every
iiiestion of benefit to the Labor or
.-animations of tlio eastern Provinces
ind of B.C. If you were going into
.1 great question, would you to to
a man of Ind record ami ast him
advice. Now with regard to thii
light hour bill, which onr fi lends say
is of no Imparlance. When thl
|U est lon came Into tbe house, the at-
Itude of tho government way not in
finding fault for Kir Wi (rid Laurie,
felt the time had not arrive 1 for th
introduction of that bill. I am no
going to weary you tonight with
quotations, but put my attitude absolutely before the people on this
iiiestion. I said the bill wss amen
led. If there is anything in u ion
ism it is that they am endeavoring
to lift the weaker brethren up, I
iaid I have no doubt the La'ur or
janlzatlonB of  Canada  would   prefer
he bill in its original form. Thej
hod used the taxes of the peo.le t.
lecelvo the people of 0. nada. I nope
avery worlcingman of Can da w.l
2cnslder this before ra ting his vote
on September 21et. Mr. Barnard
'■anie to me and said, '"What do yoi
think of this letter?" He bronchi
the question up in the horse and the
Minister of Labor said, "It is of *>'
use. We must adhere strictly to the
Labor Act," while they were bringing in thousands of laborers into tht
ttv of Vancouver. They had ac
cordingly fnapended the n t   M gxlly,
I say illegally because they had cu
more riglit to suspend that act than
we had. No government can change
a hill without the consent of the pco
pie wben once it is on the statute
hook. On that account I say they
arc not entitled to receive the support of men interested in Labor in
the Provinces and In B.C. (Cheers.)
I see on page eleven of this report
our Conservative friends say there
will be a big reduction In wage.*-, if
reciprocity means cheaper living.
Our Liberal friends tell us wanes are
controlled by supply and dem rid.
Exactly so, thnt is what we say, but
you destroy the Industries of these
provinces und you will huve the
ranchers and farmers coming into tbe
cities and competing with the laboi
already there, therefore having an
absolute power on wanes and yet
they say it has no reference to labor.
The next thing I ste here, is that
it is immaterial whether the rail-
roads go east or west or north and
south, start nowhere und end ro
where because these nowheres may
become somewheres. That is rather
a mixed mntter. Mr. Kin; says if
this pact goes through we will have
a market for our conl in the south
which will be nn advantage to Unpeople of the Crow's Nest Pass.
When Mr. J. Hill began shipping
coal soutb the people of tbe Btates
appointed delegates to ask for a tax
to be put on coal and coke. Ir, Lbe
Crow's Nest Pass becauBQ uh'J.'e l«i
trouble there is no conl f r the
smelters and yet Or. King rays lhal
is a good thing.     (Applause;.
If you send your coal s .uth you
will throw thousands of your miners
out of employment. Would Unit be
a good thing? This is what surprises me Crnnbrook is a divisional
point of the C.P.K. and is absolutely dependent upon it for the mon h
ly pay roll. We are here Umiifhl ie
cause tbey made it n divisional point
and if reciprocity poeH through our
Liberal friends tell us lhe railroads.
will go north and south so tbnt we
shall have no use for this divisional
point and Cranhrook will die, Iu
Cranbrook the train crews are working a third and half time owing to
the trouble in tbe Crow's NeBt Oass.
| 1 suppose Dr. Kim* says it id <\ good
thing. (Applause.)
How can any man with any personal regard ask you to take away
your bread and butter. S n i-ly
these men think we have ordinary
intelligence. The duty today is 45
j cents a long ton. The alteration is
8 cents taken oil coal going into Canada. Let us see what the people
Ol Nova Bcotla think of reciprocity.
They sent a Utter asking every man
to oppose it. They say it would
have a nad effect on Eastern Canada
nud that nearly nil those interested
in the coal trade ure opposed to it.
With lower rates we will get lower
wagOB, You will overstock the labor market and drive out the most
desirable class of people. Now these
men whose money is invested in that
industry, surely they know whnt they
are talking about.
Now we come to the next industry,
lumber. I am going to show you
bow these meu wore standing here
asking for support on the principles
of reciprocity and to show you that
tbey are not sincere and honest In
that Intention. They say we will
tnke $1.25 off rough lumber, but 1
say we will not be able to send in a
ton foot hoard because the lumber
used In the interior Is hiuh class
lumber. Now I want to follow this
question for a moment. A man
suid to me one day, the men will get
tlie advantage of selling at less than
cost. Well let nie say tlrst of all
No ! The prairie farmer is pa) lng
the same as before, the profit going
to the middle man. Nothing Ls ever
sold at less thnn cost without a
loss to everybody concernod even the
purchaser. The merchant who sells
at lens than cost goes to the wall.
Vou take away the purchasing power of the people as soon as you take
away   the   means of   his livelihood.
I have here iu my hand a resolution passed hy the Kooteuay Labor
Association just one year ago, which
was supported by Dr. King and all
Lhe Liberals Ln the Kootenay district. It bears out word (or word
■very argument we have put forward
ro the present time and they were
speaking from convictions t'hey knew
to be true.
It will Injure the whole of the procures and B.C. he says, it is their
inly mnrket and yet twelve months
after he asks you to support him on
that very policy.
Moved by W. B. Farris, Nelson, B.
{'., seconded by Lester Patrick, Ne-
ion, B.C., and carried :—
WHEREAS, the interests ol British Columbia, and a large portion
nf Western Canada, are suffering
rom the fact thnt the present tariff
lerniltB this country to be made a
lumping ground for the lower grad
.'s of lumber ;
AND WHEREAS, it Is a well
mown fact that the said lower grad-
s are sold from time to time at less
„hnn the cost of production, owln.;
o American Manufacturers finding u
home market for their higher grndts
at prices enabling them to sacrifice
lie common lumber in Canada re
.-ardless of cost and grcitly to the
detriment of Canadian interests ;
AND WHEREAS, tbe welfare of thc
Province of British Columbia Is t.>
a large degree dependent upon the
prosperity of    the lumber Industry,
AND WHEREAS, the Inter-provln
■ial interest as between B.C. and thc
iratrle provinces is aUo a matter of
great importance, when it is remembered that B.C. draws most of her
supplies of bay, oats, cattle, horses,
butter, eggs, hour nnd other agricultural products from Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitol a ;
AND . WHEREAS, this convention
does not believe that it is the contemplation of the Government that
any Canadian Industry should be
made to suffer through having its
home market, which, in the case of
ntmber is practically the only ma k
::t made the dumping ground for the
product of foreign competitors ;
AND WHEREAS, the United Stat
ns maintain a duty on common as
well as all other grades of lumber ;
AND WHEREAS, under thc pre. ent
Canadian tariff a duty of 25 per
cut. is imposed upon the highei
grades of lumber aud the lower grades are admitted free ;
that in the opinion -of this convention the tariff in respect to lumber
should be revised, and that the duty
be more equitably applied to a'l
grades of lumber ;
IIEHOLVEI), that after considering
nil phases of this question this convention believes tbat the suggested
revision is one in harmony with the
government's policy aud one that is
eminently fair to the interest o'.
manufacturer and consumer.
And M. A. Macdonald was the man
that was sent to Ottawa to pre-ent
it to the government. He went
down on his knees to Sir Wi frid.
nnd was refused; nnd yet twelvi
months after he and Dr. King arc
asking you to. support blm on that

pact wlll destroy this Industry. It
you take the tarlfl oft the products

bave cheap breakfasts under reciprocity, but if you destroy these Industries where are you going to get the
money from to purchase that cheap
breakfast. (Cheers.)
I will take you to Kngland or Germany wbere you can get a cheap
breakfast for fifteen cents, mt those

Why, because they have nat got the
fifteen cents to buy the breakfast.
On the floor of the HoUBe -Sir Wilfrid
Laurier said, "Why are you trying
to pass this pact', There was a time
when we should have lived to have
hnd reciprocity but thank heaven
those days are past." I got tbe
official record of tbe Imperial Conference and what do you think he
said. He said those days are hack
again. When Canada is at the
height of its prosperity, with thousands of people (lowing In to share
in that prosperity, at that time of
prosperity the Leader ol the Do nln
ion of Canada says those days are
back again and we must knock at
lhe door of the United States and
ask for reciprocity. I say never,
never. Mr. George Rosa said in thc
days of distress and poverty they
dammed the door and now tbey ask
us to accept this bill. I have here
a letter from one of England's greatest sons the man who brought Houth
Africa into the British Empire, Mr.
Cecil Rhodes, written in IBM. When
Mr. Cecil Rhodes wrote that letter
to Sir John Macdonald he was send
ng £5,000 ou behalf of the Li ernls
to fight a contest in ISnl.nl, yet
that man away in South Africa
could see along the right lire in order that tbey might build up n
mighty Empire. If you think tht
party hopeless give the money to
break up the Empire. To light we
are putting that question before you
ngain. We are trying to weld to
gether this empire. We are working-
band in hand as a perfect machine,
every part for the advancement o!
power and wealth of this great country. Shall we do something to the
best of our ability nnd intellect that
is given us or not ? I can safely
leave that in your hands and that
on September 21st, we will continue
to be loyal to our country, loyal to
our King. (Applause, lord nnd long.)
(Continued from I'age 1.)
put Canada before party. While
there have been since 1896 several
alectlons where Liberals have con
tested against Conservatives, tbe on
iy distinction heing tbnt of sent!
ment pure and simple. As a matter
of fact since 1896 you have been
supporting an administration just as
strongly in favor of Tory administration as it ever was. We, as Canadians arc protectionists and tbe
>nly difference Is ona of sentiment,
Well this sentiment has be n strong
enough of course to justify party organization and Sir Wilfrid has lee.:
tept in office. Uut today we art
face to face in a political hi atory
where the attachment for Canada'
herself ought to stand lirst and youi
loyalty to party after. The rosull
of reciprocity will he dismemberment
of Empire. With this we saw thi
llrst seeds of annexation nnd it Is
right for everyone to set tlmt this
-iced i.s destroyed before it ta .■'•■*

There is no likelihood that a condl

oral whoso name is familiar \ith thc
people of Oranbrook, Sir A Uni
Laurier snid, "The n'-ftiinsn \d tbe

.vest together tlure should be n<> bes*
nation of the people uf Canada     in
accepting his policy," He said the
time hnd arrived when Canada had
to scant) on her own fooling, We
ought to favor the O.T.P, because
it would make a great Empire. But
What has arisen with n the last few
months to mnke so much unrest and
concern among Its ? Sir Wilfrid lues his oldest and truest fr.c.ids because they are able to see something
vcry serious in this pact. Mr. '1 bos.
Walker, and twelve or fourteen other
prominent men have already issued a
manifesto to the Canadian people
pointing put thnl. it Ins cau ed a
ureat deal of unrest in Ihe Liberal
iarty generally. Mr. Harris hns reigned and refuses to repres nt his
old constituency . Weil now if
there was any doubt In the mind j of
this audience tonight it ihould be
removed at once. It is in erestin;
to see what is going on on the oilier
side of the line. You will understand if you read tie papers, that
Mr. Hearst hns very sudd,*ily devel-
still stand  lot   true     King,  me flag,
nud one empire.  (Applause, loud and
rd cheers for the I'r. mier and
Mr.   iiu

er how Canadn got on :" well without the patronage of Mr. Ri ndolpho

too hns suddenly expressed affection
for Canada, Hut cnn we. imagine a
man who has been absent si long developing a love for bis country. If
ho possessed such a love he vvoul I
want to be a resident here.
Mr. Hill says : The Conservatives
are engaging In a "Ghost Dan"e" in
regard to reciprocity. I thin't the
best explanation of Mr. H'lls' attitude can he found iu the fact that he
is awaiting at about fourteen different points to get Into Canada With
railways. Wc have the Canadian
Paciflc railway opera'ing thc lind
from const to const and this wi 1 be
shared in a few years hy the (Irani

and there is no one wntchin,- more

You cannot blame them for bcin ; nn
niouH to come into Canada, but at
the same time wc have the rignt to
be up and doing an I to be ou our
guard. (Cheers.)
Now, Ladies and Ocn lemen -Mr.
Goodeve has told you tonight how
traffic on our railway lines must be
aflected if rccipiocity carries. Mr.
Champ Clarke of the United Stats
Congress says reciprocity would not
only mean closer trade unity, but
closer social unity. Now or never
they say, but mi inest'onably it will
be never. (Loud an1 continuous
cheering). I think we can pro ml 83
Mr, Taft that notwithstanding thess
• ery gratifying conditions, that the
Canad'an people have not for otten
history, and are alive to the whole
lituation, and that while we have a
national crisis upon us we arc a':le
o stand up and put country before
arty, and empire before Laurier.
I give you the President of the
United Slates and the speaker of
the house of congress as two a'.ith .r-
Itles on this qtiestf, n, but if you
wanted to follow up this question at.
greater length there are other Am*
•rlean statesmen who lave almost
tegun to wave the Stars nn 1 Stripes
uer Canada.
Ladies and Gentlemen--Even If tbis
ssue were a gamble, we Canadians
iave no right to indulge in such a
bap-ha/.ard question.
We have ('nnatln lecuuse of our
urcfatbers, we have this because the
iountry was tn'*.cn up ly our fore-
uthers and has been held un:!er thc

I  would plead to the electors      of

Into thc melting pot ol n nety    mil-

tic.      1 am quite Satisfied lallosaud
mmlleiiKii  wo nil  cherisi  the liberty

mpire, nnd I frel certain that    this
great stalwart people will rise,   and
show to the world at large that   wc
We hnve "Mother's Dny" and some
may     suggest      We     bave  "Father's
Bay,"    and     now     In   dead earnest
Oranbrook  is to Join the whole    of
our province in having a "Childnns'
; Day"—not for  the comfurta le- ones
1 who have good,     happy  bonus, but
; fur   the    poor   little    un'ortunates
; whose parents are either unable    or
unfit to care fur them.
t    There     is     a    society called "The
Children's Aid Society" in Vancouv*
I er which searches out nnd takes c.^tre
of unfortunate children all over   tbe
I province,  gives them a good    hone,
and propares them  to be good citizens.     Nearly everyone in Cranbrook
knows C, J. South, the big and kind
hearted    superintendent,  who fathers
four hundred of these future cltl ens
and gives them the shelter and shade
they need in the society's home     lu
To this good home hnve gone L8
or Cranbrook's unfortunate boys end
girls; some of tbem have been passed on into comfortable homes where
Ihey are turning out splendidly.
Last year $11,000 wns given to
this splendid society but Crnnbrook
gave little. This year Mr. South
wants twenty thousand dollars to
lift the mortgage ofl these little ones
home, to build an inhmary for tbe
.tick and hurt, to finish n laundry
and fix up the grounds so tbat they
cau grow things for the children.
One child out of twenty under this
society's care came from Cranbrook
it surprises us does it not? Therefore
our chare should he   |l,0l0. We
should feel     a certain responsibility
for those we scut anyway.
The plan is to have a tag day on
fair day, September 19. Baseball
| has bad Its share nf tag days; now
let us let these poor tots have their
turn. Let us all huy tags and help
to sell them, and come as near our
bare as wc cnn.
No cause is worthier, nn one who
has a child or wbo ever was a child
can refuse. Lookout for the tags
then on fair day an.I decorate yourself with one. If no one asks you
to buy one. start out anl find one
nnd glvo the Children's Aid Society
a good boost.
"Human Hearts" the "idyl" of the
Arkansas Hills will be produced at
the Auditorium, next Saturday evening. Like Shore Acres and the Old
Homestead, time only increases its
hold upon the hearts of the people.
The prattle of an innocent child, the
tears of an old I lind mother, tbe
strong love of a simple cjuntry girl,
thc passion of an adventuress, the
truth of a half wit, and the tender
memory of a dead mother of the past
Governor of Arkansas, are all cleverly intermingled by tbe deft hand of
the author of this absorbing tale of
the Arkansas Hills. Eacb succeeding season of this th-iUing play's
annually increasing business, has induced the management to engage for
this season's production one of the
strongest companies ever organized
In one cast. To tbe lovers of a
good play, not 0112 on the list
this season will appeal more strongly than "Human Hearts."

Two services were held, .me for the
public, ciJii.iiuer.iig tlie gre.it "Hereafter"; the other, a hlch wt report, had
lor iU text Uod'o uull to Cain, after
lie had slain his brother, "Where Is
3'hy Brother.-" and Cain's reply, "Am
I My Brother'* Keeper?" (Ueuesls iv.
B.)   The speaker aaid in pari:—
No one van depute that ind.vulual*
lum, personal imi pendeiice, personal
responsibility, baa done much for the
development ui our race, me serfdom
and paternalism of the past were un
favorable tu Individual thought, responsibility and action, No wise and
flood man would desire to rob bis lei*
ows of Independence of mind.
V,'e are in danger, however, uf going
lu the opposite extreme—ni danger ol
carrying the subject of personal independence too far—in danger uf neglecting some who should have assistance—
in danger of thinking of ull men ai
being not only free bul equal. While
we all should have proper freedom ul
will, yet all are more or less handicapped in tlie exercise of the will. As
8t. Paul said, "We cannot do the
things which we would." We ore
slaves of sin arid death, some more
aud some less. The Prophet David's
explanation applies to us all. "I was
shapeu in Iniquity, in sin did my mother conceive me" (Psalm li, 6).
It was in view of such Inequalities
of the flesh that St. I'aul wrote tu the
Church, "We thut are strong should
bear with the intirmities of tlie weak,
and not please ourselves (merely)"
(Romans xv, I). This principle, applied by the Apostle to tlie Cnurco,
would certainly bu appropriate and
beneficial in the natural family. Aud
as our hearts enlarge we should all
come to realize more and more the
oneness, tho solidarity of our race—
the entire human lamily, of which St.
Paul says, "Ul one blood God oreated
all men, to dwell upon the luce of
the whole earth"  (Acts xvii. in).
God's inquiry of Cain implied Cain's
responsibility, and teaches us a lesson
respecting our responsibility iu God's
sight for one another. We will begin
witli the Church, thc highest type ol
brotherhood Imaginable: We should
uot be content to split into sects ami
parties. Whatever was tho ignorance
of the past, which led to the formation
of the various creeds nnd denominations, there can be no excuse lor these
now, because Christians of all denominations have come to discredit the
old creeds. Should there not, then, be
a movement toward heart unity aud
fellowship, outside of denominational
and civedal lines, amongst those who
recognize God as Father, the Lord
Jesus Christ ns thfl Redeemer, and tbe
Bible us the  Divine Revelation?
It is not proper to say as did Cain,
"Am I my brother's keeper?"  Every
true Christian should realise that today Christianity is being assaulted in
Its own House and  by its professed
friends.    Iu the universities, colleges
and seminaries uf all denominations a
battle is raging,  which threatens tbe
destruction   uf   our   Christian   faith.
Possibly a few are blind tu tbe situation, but the insurgents—the Higher
Critics and Evolutionists—realize the i
situation  and   arc  craftily   saying  to
the people,  "We  are  the  Watchmen  !
upon the walls of Zion!   Hearken to |
our cry:   All ;s well!"   These Higher :
Critics  seem  to  have  no conscience,  j
They claim that the people must be
gradually  taken  hy  guile.   They  en- {
courage tbem to "sleep," while they
raise over them the banner of infidelity called Higher Criticism.
Many who sen the killing nf thla
antitypical Abel shirk the responsl- I
blHty by saying, "Am I my brother's
keeper?" not realizing thai irom the
Divine standpoint they have a re-
Bponslbillty toward every otiier Christian with whom they an; In contact.
They should realize that loyally to
God means tiiat they "should show
forth the praises of Him whu hath
culled us out of darkness into his '
marvelous light."
In a word, every true Christian who
has made a full consecration uf him-
self to the Lord, to walk in the (out- ,
steps  of  the  Saviour,  should   waken
to Uie fact that wc are in a critical
time.   We are in the time mentioned  \
by St. Paul, when "every man's work {
shall be tried so a* by lire" (I. Conn* ;
thi ans  in,   13).    The  testing  will  be
along the lines both ui firth and uf
works.   Only those holding Urmly to
"the   faith    once   delivered    to    lhe
saints"   will   be  able   tu  bring   forth
sucb fruits, such good works, as the
testings  uf   this   hour  require.    This
class, awake to their responsibility toward Gud  and  tlu: brethren ami tbe
Bible, and full of zeal therefore, will
thereby  be  kept in  this "evil day.'
Qod will bless them in their endeavors
,o glorify Him

at that time only three other news

boom here he was unable to find on
empty house, and resolved to build
one of his own. He bought an unimproved lot, where logging operations ceased but a year ago, und on
going out to plan his house he found
half the lot occupied by a gigantic

above the ground.

cut out a seven-foot section from th*

The walls were found to be fifteen
inches  thick,  and  the  whole  stump
have been kicked out by implements.
This is a peculiarity of tlie stumps
in the Mallee country. They are su
shallow rooted that a blow from the
plow or the disc of a cultivator will
often draw them out, when they are
collected, and muke excellent firewood.
One drawback to the wheat region
of any country is the intermittent
nature of the labor required. It is
only at harvest that extra hands are
needed, and though a proportionately
greater number are required on the
Canadian wheat farm, still tven with
the combined harvester, as used
Australia in place of the binder, some
extra men are necessary. Naturally
,the farmer prefers single men, as he
usually hus no provision fur married
couple, especially if they have children. This is unfortunate fur Australia's sake, as they are the best
'immigrants, and for want of accommodation many of the married who
might be employed in the country
all the year round are compelled to

Col. K. M. Thompson will join the

said that his friend the Duke of Sutherland, has always been regarded as
the most generous and model landlord
in Kngland und Scotlund.
"It remains to be seen," said the colonel, "how the imported farmers,
whose families have, in some cases,
beeu tenants of the earls and dukes
of Sutherland for generations will remain proof against the temptation?
of independence from landlords resulting from the influences of their new

Wool Wat Not Her Specialty
A colored luwyer retained on behalf
of a colored dressmaker, charged with
stealing her customer's silk and substituting an inferior quality, was trying to throw doubt upon the testimony
of a lady witness who bad said that
sbe could tell the value of silk ac.
"Do you think," said he, "you could
recognize the man of color who
brought you tbe bundle?"
"No," she answered, "I think all
colored persons look alike."
"Oh, do you?" said the lawyer, "We
will see," and he called upon several
negroes present to rise.
"Now, madam, please tell the court
whether you could distinguish these
men apart."
"I don't see any difference between
tbem, and, except that some are a
little darker than others, 1 cannot distinguish one from another."
"Do you mean then, madam, that
you can judge accurately of silk, and,
yet you cannot see any difference between Mr. Johnson and myself?"
"She regarded herself as a judge of
silk aud not of wool," interrupted the
prosecuting attorney.—New York
Practical Arithmetic

The boys supposed it obediently.
"And suppose I cut it into sixteen

"Sixteenths," piped a dozen voices.
"Right,"  exclaimed    the    dominie.
"And supiwse each of these pieces
were cut again into four pieces, what
would they be?"
A dead, awful silence reigned while
the small brains worked desperately.
Suddenly a hand was beld up, and

Rosebery and Epsom.
The Eurl of Kosebery, by becoming
the Baron of Epsom, has, so to speuk,
made thut town Ids own. Which
will please Epsom, for not only is the
new Earl of Midlothian a loyal and
active townsman, but he is a staunch
supporter of the sport which is the
glory of the place. But it will not
be the first time that the familiar
primrose and rose hoops have been
associated with an Epsom title. In
the early summer of 1883 there was
running at the Royalty Theatre a

Northern Ontario Mine Hai ■ Remarkable  System.
Place in a in.mug camp a modern
department storo completely equipped with telephone service and auto*
inobihr- delivery and selling hydraulic
energy over the counter in hundred
pound package*, nnd the e ty bred
man may get a fnir idea of what u
power plant means to an industrial
community 1,000 miles from its coal
supply. Up in Northern Ontario
such power ei thii is more of a miracle than a brick flat with steam best
and porcehiin tuhl, for the miner
can exist without a bath, but be
can't uncover pny rock without
power to drive the drills that do it.
When the pr ce o| cool 'n Northern
Ontario begun to eot into the ore
profits the miners harnessed the
Montreal river for power.
Ragged Chute?, the point where
the miners locntcd their plant, is a
natunil wnter power in itself. It Is
ten miles from Cobalt. Here tbe
river for ubout I ..KM) yards whirls
down u thirty-five foot grade and for
four season! in the year in u boiling,
loaning torrent.
The theory us piact'cd woj to
drop thi*' surging tide down a .'MX)
foot shaft near the ton of the rapids,
then tn catch the nir huhhlcs ns they
rose from the wuter. racing through
a subterraneiin chamber toward a

about one hundred times more of a
proposition then its originators foresaw. First the low masonry dam

(By    E.  TunnaclltTe)
In taking Up the subject of fruit
growing in the Upper Columbia Valley, and treating it with the knowledge of actual experience, it is a
pleasant thought that iu placing before my readers some observations
derived from a life-long study in
horticulture, I may be able to assist
some of those wbo desire to make a
livelihood iu this line of endeavor,
A great deal has heen done ',,' advertisement and bulletin writing to
forward the fruit growing nuiuitry
in this valley, as yet only in iu> infancy, and to instruct and asnlst tiie
newcomer. A few words from n local practical man, however, is worth
a great many volumes of academic
theorizing. Now, ten acres of good
fruit land properly bandied will give
a man an easy livelihood and interesting work.
One of the leading advantages of
the fruit grower in this "alloy lies
in the fact tbat we have practically
no diseases or fruit pests to coiue.id
with. ln most other fruit "rowing
districts of North America, tbe fruit
grower is at the mercy of every kind
of disease and pest, and must cut,
burn, and destroy his trees with the
government official perpetually at tits
heels culling, grading and condemning. In tliis valley, however, even
tbe underbrush that skirts both sides
of the valley contains neither vermin
nor tiee pests. This iB attributed
to the climatic conditions which vill
always retain their virtue and salu-
hrlty. Thus we shall always be
able to produce pure, good frutt, and
with the railway at our door we
shall he in a position to place our
fruit on the prairie market at about
half the cost entailed in any other
portion of thc Dominion of Cauad.i.
Fresh fruit will be on sale in Calgary within ten hours uf leaving the
farm, while no other district can
reach that market in less thun tvo
days. Thc importance of this is
that well grown fruit tree from
travel stain commands ahout twice
the price nf any other.
The most important point in taking up fruit growing is to select
those varieties which have proved
themselves reliable and successful
season after season. I will endeavor to give a short outline of these
varieties in various branches.
Strawberries, for example, grow in
great abundance in this valley, hut
it is necessary to select such varieties as will stand irrigation and forced production. Many varieties
throw more male blossoms thnn others, nnd consequently, under irrigation grow too much to wood or foliage. If you take wild strawberry
plants from the bills and put tpe.ii
tinder high cultivation in your gaid-
on with profuse irrigation, the Ci n-
sequcncQ will be the production ot
magnificent plants hut no fruit. For
family use I strongly recomtw n I
such varieties ns the Munches.cr,
Dunlop, Sbnrpless, Magoon. and naw
Oregon. For commercial purpo.-ei
In tbis vnlley 1 think tho Magoon
stands llrst, being ono that will poi
Hnize itself. The fruit is large of
good flavor and wtll stand shipping
hotter than nny other variety.
In tenting raspberries* ttie Cuthbcrt
Marlboro, Honoy Best, end Louden
nil grow to perfection, hut the main
rivalry is between Cuthbcrt and Marl
bom. and 1 give tho preference to
Cuthbcrt. Us flavor is milder and
sweeter and Its capacity for picking
and shipping being greater than that
lot tbe Marlboro gives it a high' r
commercial value.
|    We find that  many of thc English
i varieticB of gooseberries    are subject
| in wet seasons similar to tbe pr«
ent to mill dew, but American varieties sucb as Downing, Smith's Improved, red jacket, and Oregon
Champion are free from this defect,
Thd Oregon Champion is, in my opinion, the best adapted to this valley.
Alu ost every variety of currants
does woll In this valley. Among
black currants tbe Bluck Naples
takes tlie lead, and among red currants the Kayo-Prolific is tbo nest,
while the white grape has pro el a-
bundautly successful.
Blackberries do very well hero hut
require heavy soil with plenty of
irrigation. The Machussetts, Kitta-
hinny, and Synder arc all good varieties, hut the Machussetts Thorn-
less is the best  cropper and Bhlpper.
From a financial standpoint there
is no bettor money-maker than the
Logan Berry. This is a hybrid between the blackberry and the raspberry. Us growth is different from
that of either parent. The wood ia
of a nature like a grape vine and
requires support, for which purpose
flat rock is the best accessory. This
berry is about two Inches in length
and ouo can pick a crate very quickly thus making it a valuable labor-
With regard to cherries, plums,
etc., very little has been attempted
Among cherries the Duke and Morella
have proved successful; and where it
has been tried tbe sour preserving
cherry bas yielded splendid returns.
The best varieties are tlie earl;
Richmond, tlie Late Duke, the Montmorency, Ostheime, and English
Morelln. These should be placed in
a light stony soil and not irrigated
too late in the season (say August
firBtj in order to let the wood ripen
well. Sweet cherries rehire the
same conditions with a good sunny
eastern slope, well mulched to keep
tbem dormant in the euiiy spring.
Plums do woll on heavier soil, an.!
although of tender wood, care should
be taken not to irrigate too late and
they should bo well protected in winter.
Greengage, Pond Seedling, and
Bradshaw are suitable for this valley
hut I do not recommend Japanese
plums of any variety as they are
too late a grower and will not win
Much more might lie said on the
pleasure aud profit of rearing fruit
and nursery stock in this valley, but
for this issue space forbids,
(From the Wilmer Columbian)
"Girls make me tired," said the
fresh young man. "They are always
going to palmists to hnve their
hands road."
"Indeed," she snid sweetly, "is
tbat any worse than men going into
saloon bnrs to get. their noses rod."

Silver Leaf Disease
of Fruit Trees
An Appeal for the Co-Operation of
Canadian Fruit Growers in Preventing the Spread of This
Dangerous Pest
By H. T. Gussow. Dominion Botanist, Central Experimental
Farm, Ottawa
Ab indicated by Its name, this dis-
ease may be recognized by a silvery
or milky gloss on tbe upper surface,
of the leaves of apples, plums, peaches, ebonies, currants and gooseberries. In tbis country authentic
cases have only occurred on apple-;
and plums, but in Europe the disease
has often been found on the other
kinds uf fruit. It is somewhat difficult to recognize the silvery appear
ance of the leaves, which, however,
may become so pronounced as completely to whiten, with a kind of
bluish white tinge, the foliage uf one
or more limbs, or even the whole
tree. The present use of sprays like
Bordeaux or lime sulphur results iti
covering the leaves with a bluish or
yellowish white film; ami thin may
give the tree an appearance not un
like silver leaf, but on wiping the
leaves this covering is of course easily removed, while in the real silver
leaf the color will remain. Hence
it is important to distinguish carefully between these two facts. In order to make sure diseased specimens
will be gladly examined and report
ed upon by the Division of Botany
Centra! Experimental Farm, Ottawa.
Growers should, however, try to become familiar with the appearance ,,f
the disease, which is iiy no means a
new one in this country but which
unfortunately escaped detection until
the discovery of undoubted cases of

amming orchards, and if nurh nn up
pearance bo noticed that ih not due
to any milky Him of sprays, then
tJhcro exists the probability of 'he
presence of silver leaf
Hllver leaf  is Injurious to ihe   life
of the trees above mentioned.       The
trees may at first show only one
limb affected; but gradually auother
falls a victim, until the -vbole tree
becomes involved. Working (.Jowly
the disease may take from three to
tive years before it affects the wide
tree. This depends naturally upon
the size of the tree. During '.he lirst
few years the affected branches bear
some fruit, but bearing soon becomes a thing of the past, and the tree
dies limb by limb. It nmy be said
tbat a tree once attacked nearly always dies, anil as it is our experience that it bears httie or no fruit after being attacked protection practically amounts to Immediate destruction of trees  which show  the disease.
The cause of Bilver leaf in fruit
trees bas been much discussed In
England, and one of the foremost of
English mycologists firmly disputes
any disease theory. HIb evidence In
favor fi a physiological disturbance
is however, m thf face of repeated
anil successful Inoculation experiments totally uncon Incing, tt Is
very likely, that, an in many other
cases, there exist predisposing factors of a physiological natuie, whifh
render the trees more liable to eon
tract the disease, but there exi ts In
my mind and in that -,l many care
lul and reliable Investigators i Perci
val, Pickering, etc.) little doubt thai
stiver leaf Is due to Infection with
the fungus Btereum purpureum, Tins
fungiiH I have alwaytt found as ocial
od with the rilsca c tvhorevci I have
traced It; moreovei. reportB from
othei countries (New Zealand, Houth
Africa, etc.) also Bhow that this spc
cles ol Btereum is a] na h f un I
where silver leaf trees exist. Again
in thla country I repeated tho Inocu
latton last November, and every tree
thus inoculated now shows silver
leaf quite plainly. Trees Inoculated
with Bjorkaodefla sp. (aduata), an oth
Or fungus which is found on the dead
wood of fruit trees, and control trees
'rut with n sterilized knife, also
trees growing in thfl same row, but
where UO     wound ol any     kind  wan
made,   remained  perfectly  free     from
silver leaf disease.
Silver leaf disease hns been recorded and has been personally observed
in tbe following provinces: Ontario,
(Ottawa only), Nova Scotia (several
records), New Brunswick, British
Columbia and experimental orchards
in Manitoba. No case has yet been
recorded from Quebec, the Niagara
district, ot any of thc othor provinces where fruit is grown. This, how
ever, must not be taken as an indication of its non-existence there. I
have reason to believe that the disease is very widely spread. The disease is a very serious one, and bhe
fruit industry is in real danger.
Growers in this country are advised
to examine their trees very carefully
and to give the disease no chance, of
establishing itself. Without wishing
to be alarmist, we cannot afford to
neglect the lessons taught by the disease in other countries, and every
fruit-grower should unite with the
department in their efforts to arrest
and  control it.
Stereum purpureum, thn fungus
which causes silver leaf is a wound
parasite. The fungus is liable to
gain entrance through any wound In
the bark or root. lt produces Its
fructification on dead wood only;
hence its true nature has nit at once
been recognized. The fructification
appears as more or less adpressed or
horizontal brackets of a dull crimson color, Remove at once all trees
thnt are wholly Involved; do n it allow the stump to remain in the
ground. It is generally on the stump
In or lying on the ground thnt the
fructification of tho fungus is produced. The whole wood of any til.er
leaf tree should be destroyed hy tire.
Take the trees out any time before
the fall. fn the fall tho fructification appears more generally, Out

branches and watch the tree; if af-

(By T.  P.  O'Connor, M.P.)
Tonight an influential gathering of
tbe powerful men in finance and politics who are interested iu the development of British Columbia will
meet to do honour at a banquet to
the Hon. Richard McBride, the Prime
Minister of that province. To all
men in his province, to all Canadians, he is known by the less olhcial
and formal title of "Dick" McBride.
And very appropriately. Mr. McBride belongs to that order of popular political figures to whom the
masses instinctively show at once respect and affection by preferring to
call them by their abbreviated Christian name ruther than hy formal and
cold prose of their official title and
j their full Christian and surname.
I First let me try to make my reader realize tbe mighty country of
j which Mr, McBride is, and haB been
, now for nearly a decade, the controlling force. British Columbia comes
! upon us as a mighty and a most affrighting surprise. For days, perhaps weeks, you have heen passing
through the ocean prairie of the
! great province of Saskatchewan,
! where night and day you look out on
'that tremendous expanse of flat, yellow-grassed, black-soiled holds that
'■ in the latter part of the year will be
; thousands of miles of waving corn.
But the flatness, unbroken to the
horizon, and unrelieved by even a
hillock or a tree, begins in tbe end
to pall and even depress you, and in
the winter time you cannot well visualise tho opulent splendour of this
Hat yellow and black landscape tbat
stretches before you to lengths as illimitable as the spheres. In Alberta
the landscape begins to be relieved
by the ranch farms and the sight of
frequent houses and human faces, and
horses and cattle; but there, also
yon have the illimitable flatness for
many long stretches of miles until
you begin to see in the far distance
the mountains.
But in Alberta the mountains still
look  small—tbey are not,  but      distance    makes    them    look so.     And
then you wake up from your disturbed slumber in the railway train, and
as in a flush you Hnd yourself transported to a region where all    around
you   are gigantic mountains with tops
either   enveloped    in   frowning mist
nr covered  with eternal snow,     look
down  on   vou,    and    excite and  seem
even to meunco you.     Vou wind    in
and out over bridges that seem like
Bplder-attempts to crawl through the
narrow spaces    left by these terrible
circumambient    and    frowning mountains; you are continually Iu the deafening  roar    of great  rivers falling
precipitously down rocky beds,      or
-sudden   waterfalla—in  short,   you   are
| in the midst of natural scenery      na
beautiful ua solemn, and as nffright-
i ing as thc region of Zormatt and the
] Matterhorn.
I   And then In time you make    your
escape from this region of mystery
and terror, and by and by you begin
to feel on your cheek the soft breezes of tbe sea. You are approaching
the Paciiic, and as you approach it
you become conscious of an entire
transformation in your environment.
Finally you get to the wild bustle of
Vancouver, aud there tbey will take
you to a park with gigantic trees,
with the greenest and the most massive, and at the same time, delicate
ferns, perhaps in tbe wo'M, and you
imagine that this is Lotus land in
comparison with what you have been
seeing some days previously in tbat
other British Columbia of gigantic
and snow-clad or mist-hidden mountains. Tben you take steamer and
go to Victoria, the capital of the iB-
land of Vancouver and the political
capital, though some hours from the
mainland of the great province. And
there you find yourself in a city of
dazzling beauty—of indescribable
charm. Perhaps the best impression
I can give of Victoria ib of a Pacific
Venice—it gives a suggestion of beautiful placid water everywhere—without the age and history as yet that
make Venice venerable, hut on tbe
other hand, with vaster piles of beautiful buildings and with that snowy
whiteness that ootneB from the brilliant sunshine and tbe newness of the
And as I ncared tbe pier at which
the steamer was to stop, in one of the
winter months of last year, I saw
thore for the first time for several
yeurs thc remarkable mnn who is the
ruler of thia mighty country. At
onco and as my flrBt impression there
came the idea that there waa something singularly appropriate in the
man and tbe country he rules. Like
the country Itself, Mr. McBride is
massive. I should say he is over
lift, high; he has shoulders so broad
that even a professional athlete
might envy them; a chest of great
breadth nnd depth, and a physique
altogether that is striking nnd imposing—! might say dominating.
From any crowd of men, however big
this figure would stnnd forth in conspicuous and haunting relief; you
would find it difficult to keep your
eyes off him. And the fnee and head
are as striking aa the splendidly ami
broadly proportioned body. Tbe.
face is massive but short nnd round.
It Is typically Irhdt in ita features,
Imt Instead of the typically rubicund
complexion of the men and women of
tbe Emerald Isle, it bas tbe pnllow
—healthy but pallid all thc same—
of those who live in the severer climate of the New' World. The bond
is again massive nnd, surmounted by
a mane of thick, nnow white hair, it
makes even more striking the personal appearance.
There lo at Unit a curious roscmb-
lance to tho head of Sir Wilfrid Laurier—-tho same complexion, tho same
niaasivonesa of hoad, the aame inane
of   white hair, but   thc resemblance
is not as great when you examine the
two men more closely. Sir Wilfrid
Laurier has tbe long thin face of the
typical Frenchman—indeed the Dominion Premier always looks to me as
if he had walked out of a portrait of
the noblesse of Franch in the days
before the Revolution. Mr. McBride
has the short face, the massive head
and the thick hair of the Celt of
the west. Analysing still further the
face and features of the figure of tbe
great British Columbian, you see curious contradictions with tbe impression of athletic masfllveness. The
mouth is small, the deep-set eyes aro
soft brown, tbe feet and hands are
small—there are delicacy, sensitiveness, a certain artistic element in
this big massive man as well as
strength that is at the same time
tbo simplicity, the geniality, and the
comradeship of that true democratic
sentiment you find in these new countries, where men all start from small
beginnings before they roach to wealth and power.
Tbe ancestry of the man will supply you witb the .explanation of the
apparent contradictions of his physique, and the different factors that
muke up the powerful and attractive
personality. Asked once by an importunate elector as to his special religious views—for they have some
faint echoes even in far British Columbia of the racial and religious
feuds of our Old World, and especially of that purt of it which Hob within the frontiers of Ireland—Mr. McBride described with great humour
how his father was an Orangeman
from thc north, ami bis mother a
Catholic from the South of Ireland,
nnd how aB the 12 of .luly approach
'od every year the father bought and
I the mother tore down from the wall
ithe picture of William of Or ngo, and
!how. on tbe other band, the father
j treated in like fashion the chromo-
Itypc of the Pope which tbe mother
| thought the fittest ornament of bhe
| home. Tbe elector was silenced
| amid the genial laughter of the
crowd. Mr. McBride is the perfect
lamalgam of these two contradictory
| types of Irish life. Ho haa abounding toleration for men of all creeds,
recognizes no political distinction because of differences in religious faith,
and with equal grace and general acceptance attends the bazaar for thc
Catholic church and the opening of
the Baptist chapel. And In hla character there are blended the stern
strength of the Ulster Orangeman
'and the genial soft ness of the Catholic mother from Mumiter.
1 It Is one of the secrets of Mr. Mc*
iBride's unique bold over his people
'tbnt be belongs to them iu every ner-
jvc of    bis being.      He    wns born in
British Columbia nud though he went
I to   the    law    school   at    Halifax in
Nova Scotia, to got bts professional
| training,  he has lived almoHt   every
hour of bis lifo in hiB own province
and among his own people. And be
I is never out of touch with them or
with their outlook on things. Any
day you can see him in Victoria,
moving easily among the people,
saluting every man he meets, for be
knows them all, or seated in the vestibule in tbe beautiful Canadian
Pacific Hotel over a cup of tea, talking easily and familiarly to everyone who comes to join his circle. He
is the ruler with something of tbe
Cadi in 'his methods and manners.
Some nine to ten years ago Mr.
McBride was the leader of the opposition, resisting a great I ail way Bill.
At the end of a terrific fight extending over months, the Ministry was
defeated, and Mr. McBride was called
by the whole voice of tbe country to
take up its government. He started
wltb what was a surprising and in
many quarters an unwelcome transformation of the political life of tbe
country. Hitherto Ministers bad
been a collection of men of different
parties—a personal rather than a political combination. Mr. McBride
resolved that this was an unhealthy
method of governing representative
institutions, and he substituted party
for personal government; or, in other
words, government by party instead
of government by faction.
He was just a little over 30 years
of age when ho reached this groat
position—the youngest prime minister in tbe whole British Umpire. He
has held office for nine years since.
Tho extent of his power is best rco-
lized when it is said that of the 42
members of tbe legislature 38 are his
supporters. Of the remaining four
two are Liberals and two are I*bor
men, and the labor meu are found in
his lobby nt least as often as ln the
opposite. In these years he has
achieved wonders for bis province.
Looked at with suspicion when be
started, be appealed in vain to financiers and bankers for assistance in
financing the province; now he is independent of, them all. The province
has made such progress that today it
stands in as high a financial position
as any country in tbe empire.
Everywhere you see manifestations
of thc indomitable energy of the man
Tbe illimitable resources of tbe vast
country are being developed with feverish energy and under the guidance
of a man who knows by personal
travel almost every Inch of tbe vast
territory. His last and most ambitious project iB the foundation of a
British Columbian University, which
he moans to make as to ondownment
nnd as to Professorships the equal of
any University In tbe world. Again
and again tbe Conservative party of
tbo Dominion have asked bim to
leave his province and take bis place
on tbo greater stage of the Dominion
|iu tho Parliament House at Ottawa.
I But he hnn steadily resisted all such
appeals up to the present, His
heart    and hia work arc still among
(his own people,
