the quotation of such people tv* authorities does not speak well of. nor
does it assist the envious and venomous.

OP INTEREST TO
FRUIT GROWERS
"Kl'OKT   OF MARKETS
-SKU   POR B.C,,
''■'.TCALKK.
'-om    the
•-altc,
towna is marvellous, with the continued large influx ot sett lets tu them
and thc rural districts.   But I regret
tti state our output ot both luge ami
small fruits was much less than lust
year, antl was a source ot groat, disappointment to both jobbers antl retailers in not lieing able to obtain a
supply. Nova Scotia having a large
crop ol apples tills season, jolibcrs
have heen induced lo huy largely from
that province, which heretofore lias
not been a competing lector to any
vlent in these markets.
"On ol Jobbccs anil Retailers,—
'on    ot Jobbers  tills season
■sscti nntl confirmed   by
nil mir marketable
■* at most     ol
tints quite
■ hi-glii-i j
prices tor    them than   they did       Im
American varieties ol the same grod
ami quality. Tin* Indifference ou the
part ot Jobbers to mir fruil has passed away ami they are keen to huy
anil obtain our fruil at the highest
market price al the present time. Ite*
lailcrs generally CoftCUt iu the opinion
ot jobber** as to lhc pack ami quality
of our fruil, but deplore the lack of
supply.
Small Fruits.—i regret to state
that thc supply nf small fruits from
Hritish Columbia this season was
very limited In the output, \1/.,
st rawborrlcs, raspbci rles, blackberries ami   black    currants, etc., owtnfj
to unfavorable climatic conditions al j
the time ol shipping. Strawberries,
generally did not arrive in goml i*i>tl 't
ill lion, but   other    varieties ol small!
fruit arrived in excellent condition
and prices ruled high throujfcout the
M-ason. lint th.- question ol whether
our small fruits shall lie handled exclusively hy jobbers or through the
retailers is one that will have U) be
settled at no dirtant date. 11 bandied through jobbers tliey will ot necessity have to make sales and dis-
sribute. . Hut it, on the other band,
shipped on order direcl to the retailers, ii will be necessary tor the Individual shippers or shipping associations of Hritish Columbia to send out
their own sales agents to solicit or-
den, us nn great quantity of fruit
can bc sold by soliciting through letter or card (imitations, particularly
where we have so many individual
shippers as we have at present iu
British Columbia. In my opinion
handling through the Jobbers will be
tin* better method lor lhe future.
Jobbers are prepared to buy f.o.h.
point of shipment if they can he assured of the supply and quality and
tin* question for our growers at the
present time is how to increase their
output quickly to supply thu demand
and consumption o[ the rapidly Increasing population of tin* prairie
provinces.
Cherries and Plums.—Thc supply of
llritish Columbia cherries and plums
was very limited this year, particularly plums, but prices realized were
good.
The varieties most appreciated by
Mil' trade in ihe   prairie markets arc*.
Apples, early—Yellow, Transparent
and Duchess.
\pples, fall— (liav-'iislcln and Wealthy.
, \pph*s, winter—King, Mcintosh
li.d, Noitbein spy, Jonathan, Wine*
nap and Komi* Heatity.
rears— Hart let Is, Ileum* Clatrgcntl
ami licurrc D'Anjou.
l'i aches—l*"iH-stones    (yellow   flesh),.
Crawford! and Klbeitns.
Crabs, early-—Trauso* ndant.
CrabS,  late—lly slop,
Cherries.—Anj variety of good si/c
that will bold   up ami arrive in ?.'•»<
condltl     particularly   Olivette   fur
late .shipment, as they nre appreciated now fo*r table use for their mild
imi flavor iii addition to their cxenl
fenl preserving quality. The WHO ap
plus to tin* different vnricties -.»(
si at; fruits.
li crease of Supply.—All thut was
s.utl last season as to the need of increasing our supply of the nlftc/enl
varieties of fruit can be reaffirmed
this yi iii.    Our   ultimate and greater
Mieccss depends largely ou our Increased output and our ability to
supply in larger quan
tities of one \ar-
lics in Increased quantities must be
the motto of Hritish Columbia •'"■■
glowers tor Ihe    ful uie, always bear-
in.- in minh the adaptability ol varieties ol the different districts and
the requirements of the markets to
bc supplied.
Competition to he Met.—Tho com-|
petition to be met for the luturc in'
the prairie provinces will always licl
of the keenest sort Irom the fact of
their inability to grow fruit of any I
kind, therefore making il necessary
tor them to import from Iruit growing countries. This season a new
competing factor, apples trum Nova
Scotia, were stripped largely to these
markets antl one that will have to be
considered in the luturc in addition'
to our usual competition from Ontario and American points. OI course
higher freight rates will handicap
them to some extent, hut nevertheless j
they will have to be reekouetl upon i»
the future, particularly when they
have bumper crops.
Prices.—Prices were well maintained throughout the season for all varieties of fruit, although peaches dropped much lower than was anticipated
tmm the short crop. .lohliers slate
they pay more for the British t'olum-|
bia fruit than for American fruit ofi
the same variety and grade. While
they are willing to pay tlie highest
market prices to British Columbia |
growers for their fruit, they ure not!
willing to pay the execsshe prices
sometimes asked by our growers and J
shippers. Our growers, whilst tbein
output is limited,, mny he able to I
dispose of it at higher prices, but
when our production is greatly Increased our growers will be compelled to meet the oxlstlnti competition
on au equitable basis, imt always ro-
membertng ih>- hlghei we rain the
standard ol our frull products, iln*
higher Ihc price will be obtained.        i
Methods ot Handling.—In respect]
to tho handling or disposal ol our]
fruits, I uni.of tho opinion fiat tbe
marketing through the jobbing bouses
will be the mosl satisfactory to our.
growers ami shippers at th;* present
time, at least. Either of the other
methods onllintd in former reports
would entail great expense in putting
into operation without present pro-
ductlon. The present jobbing houses
now all rcalltO the great possibilities
of fruit growing in Hritish Columbia
atil have already prepared themselves to buy aud handle our fruit
products, realizing thc necessity that
they will lie disposed ot to a large
extent in these markets from our
proximity to them and particularly
so it we continue the high standard
set by some of our growers and
shippers, and If followed and co-opcr-
alcd In by other growers nnd shippers generally in British Columbia.

A Personal
Message
To Cranbrook Citizens on
Anchoring Against Adversity
Did you ever stop to consider the vast opportunities that
beckon you in CRANBROOK DISTRICT?
Do you know that your climatic conditions are attracting
capital for the purpose of exploiting your garden truck and
Iruit lands ?
Have you ever realized that the good lands surrounding
Cranbrook will raise vegetables, small fruits and apples that will
compete with anything raised in British Columbia ?
If you do, why not grasp the opportunity and secure a
garden truck or fruit land home before it is too late. You will
see the chance after outsiders have secured the choicest of
your lands.
I am placing before my clients the Robinson-Mackenzie
lands, sub-divided into five acre tracts.
We have named our sub-division
KOOTENAY
ORCHARDS
and retailing same at from $75 to $150 per acre, on easy terms
and low interest.
How many men of your acquaintance save nothing, spending every cent, they make for foolish pleasures and indulgencies ?
" Everybody's happy when the sun shines," and life to these is a
rose strewn pathway with not a care or sorrow in sight. The
world is their oyster and they reckon not on the morrow. Sooner
or later the chilling wind of ADVERSITY and hard times
stares them in the face. Help is being laid off at the factory, the
mills reduce their forces, mines shut down or pinch out. the
office force is cut down, and salaries are lowered to reduce
expenses. Sometimes sickness comes to the head ot the household, and he who is usually so vigorous and jovial is pinned
down for weeks to a bed of pain and his family for the first time
feel keenly the gaunt fingers of want clutching them. These are
instances of the afflictions of adversity and the moral that adorns
the tale is —GET THE SAVING HABIT AND LEARN
TO SAVE FOR DEFINITE PURPOSE,
The best way I know of to anchor against the storms of
FINANCIAL ADVERSITY is to save for a home that will
produce an income and which will at the same time afford a
safe and pleasant shelter for your family. After all, it is not until
a man owns the ground he stands upon and looks from his doorstep to the shadowed plumage of his iruit trees and plunges a
spade in the ground, that he knows the true meaning of a
HOME
The best place I know of to get such a home is in the
CRANBROOK DISTRICT—KOOTENAY ORCHARDS—
where they can grow money-making crops that surprise the
world.
KOOTENAY ORCHARDS is one of the best fruit land
tracts in the CRANBROOK DISTRICT and is well located.
The prices I am asking for KOOTENAY ORCHARDS
arc at present within the reach ot every person desiring a home
amid pleasant surroundings, and terms are the same to everybody—Only $10.00 Cash and $10.00 per month, or 33 cents, per
day.    Interest 5 per cent.
Our contract provides that in case of sickness or your
inability to make your payments through adverse circumstances,
same will be suspended.
I believe that Cranbrook is destined to become the garden
spot of the East Kootenay and Ihe commercial centre of a vast
country whose fruit producing capabilities are just beginning to
be realized-
This properly is selling fast to the people of the prairies, and
if you desire a five acre home in KOOTENAY ORCHARDS
act today, as to-morrow may be too late.
Ask R. E. Beattie, of the Beattie-Murphy Company, what
he thinks of kootenay orchards.

Wc don't want to work

We want a good day's wages
And the master's profits too.
If we had a disposition like some

is only repeating Itself.
When women nowadays com mil Uie

breaking the laws and everything
else in sight, Ihej are hm copying a
chapter from the history of ancient
Rome, fin two centuries before the

streets of Rome. Thc cause of the demonstrations has changed to he sine,
for then ll rose through the desire of

ornaments, and modern men, assured*  -,„
ly have too much wisdom to interfer
in ,i matter of this kind.
Thc trouble arose In this wise; Ono
Opplus, n tribune ol the people, tabled a hill in prohibit iln- wearing of
ornami ntt hv the haughty Roman
matrons and their fair daughters. The
astonished women did nol wait (oi
lhc fecund reading or tlie committee

re! deliberations as to the methods
lo in* employed in defeating tbe machinations of the doui and ungallanl
Opplus Thej dul not agitate for the
votr Thej went nut int.. the Btrecta
and waylaid the male voters, constraining them to   pi Isc to oppose
the ornaments law. Each day tlicli
numb i ■ swelled. From distant towns
and villages Roman ctUzcncsses Journeyed in in .lid tn iln* tijilit for women's rights, Nobles, proctors and
rongnlH had a harrowing time giving
interview- i,, [rate dames. \i length
the daj drow neai when the proposal
of Opplus   was to In* decided in    the
C public assembly. A gnat meeting was
, inili nu the previous evening, al
which the obstinate, red-lialred Cato,

Modern methods of ready-to-wear clothet production have removed man's greatest clothes problem.
In the days of custom tailoring you had to imagine
how the chosen material would look on Jiou, when
made up in the style you selected.
To-day, you can go into a good
shop and try on suits unlil you find the cloth and
style that suit you best.
When everyone admits this great advantage, why
nol go just a slop luiilui and be careful to purchase
in a shop where there is endless variety lo choose
from?
We can show you—in the "Fit-rile" line of high
grade clothes—every type of suit and overcoat sanctioned by the prevailing mode.

SPOILS SYSTEM IN MANITOBA
POSTMASTER    DISMISSED    WHO
HAD HELD OFFICE SINCE
1884.
FOK SALE.-One cart. Apply Herald om». Ml*
After .successfully conducting the
affairs of the post office ot Melita,
Man., since 1884, Mayor H. M. Liia-
hani, who is now enjoying his filth
consecutive term as chief magistrate
of the town, has fallen a victim to
the party axe, and is severed from
the ofi.ee he-.was appointed to at $10
per annum when Sir .lohn Macdonald
was premier.
In a statement'.sent to tfie Toronto
Globe Mayor Oraham says be has
endeavored to ascertain tbe cause for
bis dismissal, and after much insistence learned from Dr. Schatfner, M.
P., a previously warm friend, that.
offensive partisanship was the cause.
Thc Melita Enterprise, a Conservative
journal, edited by a member of , tho
executive ol the party, states that
bis dismissal was not due to partisanship, but allef-pd negligence.
The dismissal of Mayor Graham
was most unexpected, and though the
town is straight Conservative tlw
popularity of tho ex-postmaster is
shown by the fact that he is the only
mayor wbo has held office more than
one year. His successor in the post
office is Mr. S. G. Davis*, who took
an active part in the campaign in the
interests of Dr. Schaffaer, M.P.
Mayor Graham lias made a sworn
affidavit to the effect tbat since his
appointment in 1884. lie has kept scrupulously out of politics. On polling
day be had two bind men working
on a threshing machine at his (arm.
He allowed these two men off to vote
and drove them to the booth, but
politics, he says, was not discussed
and the mayor was unaware of tbc
side for which their votes was cast.
After the election the successful candidate wrote him to thc effect that
bis dismissal was intended for working against him on election day
Mayor Graham laid the whole situation before Dr. Scbaffner, but was unable to get any satisfaction in spite
of the affidavit which he swore to.
Tlie deposed postmaster followed this]
up with letters to Hon. Robert Rogers and Premier Borden, but in their
replies both gentlemen statrtf they
knew nothing of his case. Hon. T- W.
Crofters, an old friend of Mayor ttra--
bum's, endeavored to assist him, but
tIk* die had already been cast. "When
an employee of the government comes
undei tin1 partisan rule an outsider
like me can do nothing. I understand!
you come under that rule," was part!
of ii reply which Mr. Graham says
Mr, C rot hers made to him in a,letter. Mr. ('rotters stated that tbe
rKwlmas-ter-genera! would investigate
the matter, hut Mayor Graham
could draw m> replies to the letters
itihlrossoil to that gentleman
"Could anything be more contempt-
itile under Hritish rule?" Mayor Graham writes after outlining thc trouble he had taken in an endeavor to
bavo any charge against him investigated.
"I moved here on a homestead Irom
SI. Thomas, Ont., in 1883," Mayor
Graham continues in his communica*
tion to tho Globe. "The following
year I was made postmaster with
salary of $10 iht yeac and braved all
the vicissitudes of pioneer life. During
tbeso twenty-seven years that I was
postmnrter the average salary was
less than half of my bare cost ol
living. One plea for my removal was
that 1 could Kve without it. which I
hope will come true. If 1 bad nothing
except what the post office department paid mc I would be poor Indeed.
The town of Melita is decidedly Conservative, and yet I am mayor this
year for the fifth consecutive term.
Would thc Conservatives have permitted this had I been partisan? And
if I am a failure as postmaster bow
is it tliat I am kept five years in tlie
mayor's chair while none ot my pwH
deecssors held the position moro than
one year? I told them that 11 ...they
withdrew the lying charges ol partisanship and told me on the square
that they wanted the position for a1
parly worker I would resign."

NEW ZEALAND'S PREMIER
IN. THOS.    MACKENZIE CHOSEN TO   SUCCEED SIR
.JOSEPH WARD.
Wellington, N. Z„ March 27.—At a
aucus of Liberal, Labor and Inde-
endent members of parliament, lion
'homes Mackenzie was eliosen to BUc-
Docl Sir Joseph Ward as premier.
It. Mackenzie is 58 years ol age,
nil has been in parliament twenty
vi* years. Ho was minister of agri-
ulture in lhe Ward administration.
Cable advices from Kingston, Jamaica, state that an important proposal bas been submitted lo thc government by the Canadian Pacific railway. The scheme contemplates Lho establishment of a weekly service or
15-knot vessels 01,51101) tons, with accommodation lor one hundred saloon
passengers, between Halifax and St.
John alternately and Kingston, connecting at St. John fortnightly, i
winter with the C.P.R. "Expresses
and in summer wilh vessels of
another line. Provision is also to be
made for tho establishment in Jamaica of a coastal freight service and
the fixing of through rales for passengers and freight during the con I/Ill*
uance of thc contract, which would
be for ten years. A subsidy of B60,-
000, hall being payable by Jamaica,
is suggested. The proposal is to he
considered hy the legislature shortly*
Commenting on this scheme, Mr.
Algernon E. Aspinall, tlie secretary
to the West India committee, said tho
committee would welcome the appearance of one ot the trunk railways
of Canada in lhc West Indies, believing that its advent would lie followed
hy active development of business nml
tourist traffic. ''Whether the establishment of the service will solve lhe
freight question is another matter,"
he added. "Freights from Canada have
again risen recently, and in the east:
of sugar, for example, the question of
transhipment is rather a serious matter. Until further particulars of the
scheme are available, it is uncertain
whether the facilities via Cauatla will
bt! superior to these already existing
via New York, lite majority of thc
merchants and firms in this country
trading with .Jamaica would, very naturally, prefer to sec a direct mail
and passenger service, such as obtained prior to 1910, but wc believe
that tbe advent of thc C.l'.ll.
would be followed by a policy of
more active development. From that
point of view it would be of immense
advantage to thc West Indies."

"At the time ol writing there
would appear to bc good prospects ot
a conference between representatives
of the Dominion of Canada and llm
British West Indies meeting to discuss the details ol a reciprocal trade
arrangement. . . (Tins conference is
now in progress at Ottawa on

laet which seems already to be perceived by the exporters of these com
modittes in the Dominion, and when
the Panama Canal is open thc

London, March 37.—A special sitting of the County of London sessions opened yesterday for the trial
of 125 women, who bad bun com-

standing among the older commun1- Travels Humphreys, counsellor lor
lies of the coast without shame. It is the treasury, in his speech for the
as certain as that they have said it,' prosecution, emphasized tho fact that
that tho thing will lie done. I the raids    were  an organized attack
of ull the   Canadian roads, tlte Ca-' on property and could not he tolerat-
n.idiaii   Northern   Pacific lias secured td.
tho best grade through the moun-j Judge Robert Wallace sentenced
tains. The average is less than two- several of the suffragettes to terms
tenths if   one    per cent., no greater  ranging fn in four to six months' im-
than the prairie sections ot tlie differ-1 _..	
ent roads. This means comparatively
light cost of hauling to the coast.
The fact lhal Irom thc northern part
of the province of Alberta, the Canadian Northern has Uie shortest Hoe,
is another advantage In favor of Port
Mann. Krom tla1 entire system of thc
Canadian Northern which taps with
iis various branches all thc best
wheat areas of Manitoba, Saskatchewan antl Alberta, there will flow to
Port Mann a steady stream of the
famous No. 1 hard wheat.
To accommodate this traffic elevators are already planned for Port
Mann. Mackcn/ae and Mann have lolin
been leaders in the elevator business.
Their Immense storage and slapping
elevator at Port Arthur, at the brad
of Lake Superior, with capacity of
7,000,000 bushels, is the largest in
the world and recently orders were
given for additions to it, so that
it will Ire long More anotlnr grain
elevator exceeds it in capacity. No
doubt that the facilities to la' pro-
vWed at Port Mann will quite equal
the record the company bas at the
eastern end of their system.
Wilh the coming of the wheat traffic west, there will also come large
nourishing mills, to grind the product
ready for consumption here ami lor
export. As noted elsewhere, one such
concern has already made tentative
arrangements and there will be oth*
cis. as Pott Mann develops.
Not alone will Port Mann depend
on giatn ami Hour trade, Many other
Industries are planning to locate
there. Steel works of large size arc
likely ere long to lie announced,
while a ear building plant, machine
shops and foundry are assured. A
cold storage plant, lo handle fish and
other products of the cowl is also
to be begun this year. The Canadian
N< rthern themselves have e\tensive
plans for repair shops, warehouses,
stores, roundhouses, machine shops,
etc. It is their expressed intention
of having at hast 2500 men employed
in their various works In a year's
