Because they have investigated that town.
Have you heard the details of iti awakening? Do you know that it is the largest town between
Calgary and Vancouver? Do you know that it is bound to be the great distributing point in the interior of British Columbia? Do you know that during the coming year, the work of building the Canadian Northern
into that city will be commenced? Do you know that the C.P.R. is building an alternative freight route
from Red Deer by the Yellow Head Pass to Kamloops? Do you know that the C.P.R. bought last fall $250,000
worth of property to enlarge its yards, shops and round houses and will build a new depot? Do you know that the
Provincial government is to build a new $200,000 Old Men's Home? Do you know that a new Catholic convent
costing $85,000 has just been completed? Do you know that the city is lo build a new hospital costing 1125,000?
Do you know that the town has some 4,500 to 5,000 people? Do you know that the Government and the C.N.R.
are to build at once a new traffic and railway bridge at Kamloops to cost $250,000? Do you know that the streets
are all graded, cement sidewalks laid, residental streets paved? The climate is superb, the yards bowers of beauty,
made so by flowers and vines that are in bloom to November 1 st, and start to show life again in March. Do you
know that the population will double in fifteen months, and within fifteen years the town will have at least 15,000
people ? Do you know that the country is surrounded by magnificent farming and fruit lands, with mineral galore,
and that Kamloops apples have won many prizes? Dp you know there is no more beautiful place on earth to live?
Well we do. We know all these things as well as a man can know anything that he has given a close study to. We
have staked our all on Kamloops.    Many others have done the same and made good.
ls onl)' twelve blocks from the highest priced property in the town, a beautiful residential site commanding a magnificent view. Lots are selling from $210 to $490 each, but only half will be placed on sale—every other lot. Why?
Because we feel confident in our own hearts that we will double our money on the other half next year. This is no
cheap proposition, yet you can buy on terms of one-eighth down and five per cent per month for eighteen months.
That gives a chance to sell in five or six months, and after a few payments would get the advantage of the increase.
To make money we should buy before the increase.

The Consequence Will lhe Bowling Leaguers*
The Debenture by-law to rmse the
sum of $100,000 (or thc construction
'of 11 sewerage system was defeated
;on Tuesday through the proporty
owners not taking sufficient Interest
in the matter,     thinking that au   a

situation thnt demands the most care

winter and the advent of Bprlng,
conditions will be precipitated that
will imperil the health aud well being of the people owing to the absence of any system of sanitation.
An epidemic seems inevitable unless
some drastic measure of alleviation
Is speedily and carefully provided.
The city fathers, in their wisdom,
foresaw the present conditions, and
havo been to considerable expense to
solve the problem, and after nearly
a year o( investigation, realized thnt
It was their duty, as well as the request of a large number ol progressive cltisens, to place before tbu people a means of providing for the
safety of the city; but for some unknown reason the proporty owners
have not seen Ht to assist, them by
passing a by-law that would have
given to the people that protection
against disease which in the near
future may take the form of an epidemic, costing thousands of dollars
to eradicate.
Conditions In Home parts of tbe
city are deplorable and it begins to
look as though the onus will rest
largely with tho property owner to
work out a system of temporary
sanitation. The city council, under
the advice of competent, medical experts, and a full and complete investigation of conditions, have in good
faith done their duty, It now rosta

Mr. Burrell did not view tlie question of reciprocity from a purely

fruit industry. This only made all
the stronger the array of facta and

that the Fielding-Unox arrangement

Mr. Paterson, the Minister ot Customs, learned to his sorrow that Mr.
Burrell knew what he wns talking
about. In 1907 the minister from
his place in the House had declared
in favor ul a tariff against American
fruit. He tried to explain this during Mr. Burrell's speech by saying

startle thc unthinking world when
Its results begin to appear. It is
just ten years since the death of Li
Hung Chang, the greatest of Chinese
statesmen of whom the outside world
knows nothing definite. Alter he
had, with the aid of "Chinese" Gordon, suppressed the Tnlplng rebellion
in 1864 he rose rapidly to a position
of commanding Influence, and with
the exception of a brief Interval
marked by tbe disastrous war with
Japan, he held It till bis death in
1901. He had accomplished as much
as any one man could do ln creating
a navy, keeping the Empire territorially intact, and infusing Into he
minds ol his countrymen some ol
those western political ideas which
he appreciated while tie disliked
With tbo passing nt Ll Hung
Chang came a period ol confusion,
which made it difficult to see how
the Chinese Empire could tall to become the prey of Russia and Japan
indeed, had these two powers cooperated Instsad of antagonizing
each other there might have heen Ir-
rcpnrnble dismemberment of Chinese
territory. The younger statesmen
who are now invested with the management ol public affairs are earnest
anil intelligent in their policy, both
civil and military. They aro cautiously preparing to substitute parliamentary government for the old autocracy; they are organizing as rapidly as is compatible with efficiency
an army which will In a few years
be a million strong; they are building up a powerful Hoot ol modern
war vessels, small and large; above
all, they are learning Irom the western foreigners the necessity for all
kinds of reforms and the methods of
carrying them out. In ten yonra
from now China will be one of the
most powerful ol the great powers,
and will ho quite proof against either
Itunsiii or Jnpan, perhaps against
both In alliance.
It becomes an interesting quostlon
what the Chlnoso will try to accomplish when they find themselves able
to practice successfully not merely
dolonslvo strategy hut offensive methods. It Is quite certain thnt thoy
will try to clear Manchuria of all
foreign domination; thnt thoy wlll
endeavor to control, If not own, all
railroads, and that they will restrain
within narrow limits the territorial
franchises allowed lor many years
past to foreigners at their principal
seaporta tor trading purposes.
