by-law for lhe same purpose shall be submitted lo Ihe electors during

interval of not less than sixty days after the defeat of the by-law, and
requeil that il may be again submitted lo the ratepayers, binding themselves, in such manner as the Council may decide and approve of, to
defray the cost of placing the by-law again before the electors, in the
event of it not receiving the necessary assent lo become law.
Tuesday's vote on the sewerage hy
law was very much in lhe nature id
a thunderbolt, li had nnt. been anticipated that there was any organic
ed opposition to the bylaw, and it
had been taken for cranted that
every property owner would bo sufficiently alive in the Importance of the
occasion to poll his or her vole.
The result shows conclusively that
there was both organized opposition

t'p to Monday evening, despite
careful Inquiries, the Herald had not
encountered a single Voter, who was
openly opposed to the I law. In fact
the unanimous opinion appeared to
he that it was only a question of
the majority in favor uf it And
yet it is quite obvious tbat there
must have heen something in the
nature of organi/.ed opposition to the
bylaw. On Tuesday, while polling
was in progress, a Herald represent
alive, in making his rounds, came
across several who intimated Iheir
intention of voting against the hy
law. Upon being asked why, the reply was either to the effect that they
intended to show that the "two dollar" vote could not run this city,
or that "so long as Mi Oeo. Thompson is retained ns city solicitor, they
would vote against any measure of
this kind."
Ite these reasons good or bad. tliey
were obviously sufficient to Influence
a good many votes against the bylaw.
On the other hand, when It     came
to investigating   why so many failed
to vote at all, complaints were made

fell is quoted as giving the following
Interview in regard to reciprocity:
"From my recent trip to Canada I
am convinced that Canadians fully
realize the progress and prosperity
j that have accrued to Canadian manufacturing and agricultural industries
frnm cheap money sent out at a rate
'ui over 1380,000,000 per annum by
; l-.ugli. h Investors. I am confident
thai the first thing taken into consideration by the fan.idi.iu ministers
wuuld he whether tbe reciprocity at
rangement witb tbe United states
might affect the securities against
'which these large investments have
. lieen made. I believe it will prove
lot inestimable advantage to Canada
(treat material benefits will be derived by (lie whole Dominion in both
agricultural und manufacturing Industries from tho opening of American markets.
j "The future prosperity of Canada
must he largely based on the sound
ness ot agricultural industries, and
the enhanced value of western farm
lands that will result from reciprocity will mean greater security to
Knglish Investors. The free and lar
get markets, wbicb reciprocity will
open In Iln* tanners of tbe west, will
cause groatel demands for the pro
ducts of tho factories ot tho cast
Canadian statesmen hate taken nil
vantage nf tbe situation, It appears
lo mo they hnvo secured splendid
terms fur Canada in exchange for
giving     Americans    whal  Americans
by investing their money at high
rates of interest, while assisting iu
the development of the Hritish empire. I deeply regret lu read the
speeches made here by snrne tarifl reformers, who seem shortsighted,
They appear tti be as much wedded
to doctrinaire preference as their
political opponents are to theoretical
free trade."
There seems to he an Impression in
certain quarters Hint if Canadian
wheat is diverted in any considerable
quantity to the United .states in
the working out of the reciprocity
agreement (treat Itritaiu will be in
some way injured and may have tn
pay inure for ber wheat than she
now does. As a matter of fact,
during Ihe past live years Canada has
sent the t'nited Kingdom a little less
than an eighth of its wheal supplies.
Kven the United Stntes, which will
ere lung be a fund import ini* country
nn a large scale, has been a greater
factor than Canada In feeding the
people uf Oreat Hritain. Taking
wheat and lluur, the Hritish board of
irade figures give the following
—Kngland gives Canada free markets,
and as the premier says: "More she
cannot give without taxing tbe lund
ot the people aud exciting wide
spread agitation and resentment."
What, then, is Canada, a growing
country, to do, with lier ever-increasing output? New markets sbe must
have; and it is altogether ridiculous

It will be observed ibat iu tbe
year 1000 Canada sent a little over n
sixth of Britain's wheal und flour,
and tbe I'nited Slates a little under
a sixth, It is almost certain that
from this time forward lhe wheat
exports of the United Stntes will
decline steadily, while those of Canada will as steadily Increase until
the Dominion in the form of whent
or Hour will contribute at least a
third of Britain's total importation
of breads tuffs, The fear tbat this
great volume ol east hound grain will
reach tho seaboard through United
States channels instead of by Canadian railways nnd lake nnd ocean
vessels is nne that does not seem to
be well founded, remnrks Ihe Toronto Globe, If rates nre nt nil on an

The rather unusual spectacle has
heen presented of a rather sharp decline in the approximate earnings of
the Canadian Pacific railway during
January, due doubtless to tho smaller crop lasl season, while llie price
of the Block in the markel is going
up, and everybody seems bullish.)Thc
rise is also the more remarkable iu
face of the prophecies of dire dlsas.
ler if the reciprocity agreement goes
through, one of those to he hardest
hit being ihe Canadian Pacific. The
newspapers favoring reciprocity naturally ask how this can he in view
ol llie fact Ihal    much has I n said
of searing British capital away by
Ihe agreement while il is well known

business of till) company was likely
to he Utterly destroyed, us suggest
ed, Ihey think the stock would nol
advance in the face of such a prospect. The heaviest decline in earnings shown yel this year was for the
first week of February, the decrease
heing {278,000 compared with a year
>. The maximum earning capacity of the company is reached in
October and the minimum comes iu
February. H has to be remembered
that this year's records are being
compared with a banner year and
some further expansion will have to
lake place before the records created
in HUH can be beaten lu the meantime the company announces its in

The impression that some people
iive that the Canadian government
annuities scheme is available only to
persons over the age of in is quite
erroneous, an impression arising,
probably, from tho fact that SS is the
i-arliest age, except [or invalidity or
disablement, at which the annuity
can begin, Naturally, the younger
the person is when the purchase is
begun, the smaller will be the payments which he or she will have io
make to secure the same annuity,
md smaller will hr the apparent
ust But an)  person over the age
ut live may purchase an annuity. An
account of the sad ending of an old
aCetttleman who hail until recent lj
lived all his life in a Canadian province, hut upon whom
fortune fot some reason luut not smiled, was commuui-
atcd a few days ago in a despatch
front a I S. city, lie had gone lo
Michigan to stay with a son (or the
remaindci of his days, Imt shortly
iftei his arrival the son died leaving
no means, and the father who pre
[erred death rather than the poor
house, to which he was to hove
been sent the following day, terminated his life If tb/ old gentleman
had heen provident in his younger
days and had laid aside but lOe. a
week, the amount accumulated al
:t per cent compound interest which
he would have had at his disposal at
an would have purchasnl for him an
annuity of Mkii a year, an income
sullieient to have enabled htm to
have provided for himself for the re-
inaiiiilei of his days. Had he had
ihe opportunity at 80, as all residents uf Canada have today, of paying in to the government annuities
fund a sum of llic. a week, his income at Ko would huve heen over
(fiSB instead id tlRO, and hud he died
nt any lime before 'attaining the age
ol su liis heirs would have received
everv conl that he had paid in witb
( per cent compound interest up to
the date of his death. As the old
gentleman reflected upon the past, it
no doubt seemed but yesterday when
he was a boy. Still, young men
ami women are disposed to spurn
the thought that old age is Inevitable, that the day will come when
they themselves will be old, and that
the poor house must he their ultimate destiny if they have not made
provision against sucb a contingency
But it will be impossible for them
to dodge the Issue, and the system
of suving which the Annuities Act
affords them is positively the only
means available hy which they can
make this provision with absolute
ccrluinty, mid witb lhe smallest out-
lay. Explanatory literature may
he obtained nt the posl ofllce, or
will he supplied ou application to
the Superintendent of Annuities, Ottawa, to whom letters may tie sent
free of postage.

The Miller says:—
is a better flour, because 1 follow
it through every stage.    First,
I am mighty particular in the
selection of the wheat, anil that
counts a lot.   In fact, it is one
of the very biggest factors in making a
superior quality of flour.   There is a big
difference   in districts, you  know, and
for Seal  of  Alberta   we  select  wheat
from particular districts.
"Then   we  are    careful   about    cleaning   it.
It is screened and scoured and washed.    It would
be hard to do  any more than that, wouldn't it ?
Then we have searched  the  world  for the finest
milling machinery, anil we have it here    When the
wheat is milled it is  tested  and aged, and not a
sack goes out to you until it is just right.   And that
is why so many people say Seal of Alberta is a better
flour.   Those who use it know it is better, because
it makes a larger, lighter, whiter loaf of better texture
and finer appearance.   Those who use it know it is
better- I have told you some of the reasons why."

There were fully four hundred and
fifty people round the rink when the
game started about 8.lfi p.m. aud as
lliere had been no skating during the
afternoon the lcc was in perfect condition for fast hockey.
II, Bishop electrified the spectators
by opening the score for Nelson in
the lirst minute. After this, play
during the first period, was decidedly
in favor of Cranbrook, although L.
Patrick managed to break through
and score in 13 minutes. Si\teen minutes from the start Connolly brought
the spectators to their feet with a
roar by scoring a goal with a shot
which Iv Bishop had no chanec to
stop. The lirst period closed with
the score 1—i in favor of Nelson.
Two minutes from the commencement of the second period L. Patrick
scored for Nelson. This was all the
scoring iu this period. tJianks to the
good work of K. Bishop and McMnn-

large gathering and proved vastly Interest ing. The Moyie ladies carried

free from anything objectionable, in
fact tho young tadies gave an excellent examples of how to play the
game. They put any amount of
spirit into the play, fought every
foot ol the ground with the utmost
vigor and withal avoided everything
in the nature of wrangling. That
the teams were very evenly matched

that Washington lumbermen just as

Regarding liritisli Columbia us a
timber investment field, Dr. -ludson
Clark, of Vancouver, has this summing-up in a pamphlet recently published by him on the subject:
By far the greatest proportion
(fully 80 per cent) of the forests of
British Columbia are held under the
so-called Special Timber License.
This is essentially a system of leasing common to nil the Canadian
provinces, and also obtains on the
forest lands controlled by the Dominion or Federal government. These
leases, formerly limited to a '.11-year
tenure, have now been made renewable from year to year as long as
merchantable timber remains on the

The bald statement of this [net does
nut convey anything of interest     to
those who know nothing or the problems nf transportation in the valleys
of the interior of the province     ol
British   Columbia.       First of    all,
then,   Golden,    the nearest railroad
(own to    Wilmer is eighty-live miles
away,     the    toad between the   two
places runs   along (he hanks of    the
Columbia river,     sometimes on     the
level, more often    iu a deep cutting
nlung the   sides of the Rocky Moun

vehicles except    at   certain stopping
places.     At two different points    on

itidetstnod     thut   the  lirst  difficulty
lay in     negotiating the roads.     The
econd difficulty    was the   weight ol

thousand  live hundred pounds,     and
this    had     to have a    speeial sleigh

mill wete sent on ahead.     Tbe boiler

A team with sleigh, on which were
\11a    chains and   appliances, with
men  for    shovelling snow  al      bad
points in the road, or for helping   in

front of the boiler sleigh, whilst behind tame the "jigger" with chains,
etc., lor    bidding   back going down

grade.   Considering the state of   the
roads, whieh   this winter were    not
well packed, as there was no "January" thaw, but great quantities    of
soft snow, the haul was made in record time, taking only three and    a
half days (torn Qolden hi to Wilmer
Just to show how greal an interest
was evinced in    such an unusual undertaking   all     through    the valley,
bets were freely taken as to the utter Improbability of ever hauling the

* CRANBROOK,    -    B.C,
Iii reference to the discussion now
in progress ancnt the bearing of reciprocity upon tin- fruil Industry in
British Columbia, tho following communication addressed tn the N'elson
News, will bo found decidedly pertlu*
Sir—Thai we have as gnnd a climate as thoro is to be bail in any
part of the world is undoubted, ami
that we van produce apples oi the
very lirsl quality has frequently boon
Bhown, nol only at Hie local shows
hm ui the First Canadian apple
show at Vancouver, and at tin- various bIiows in America and England
lo which our apples have boon sent.
1 havo such Implicit confidence in
tho great future oi this district for
the production of apples Impossible
tu he excelled in any part of tho
world that I am making the move i
am doing, 1 attended the local apple
show and the Vancniivei show and
have handled a greal number of up-
ples for various growers,
1       have bad excellent
opportunities for seeing bow the
dees ate grown, bow eared fur, Imw
(lie crop is harvested and how after
production the crop has been placed
on the market. 1 assisted in the
selection and staging of apples for
the two aforementioned shows and
since that time have dune a considerable amount of packing.
1 have fnr a long time been greatly
disappolntcd with the general handling nf the apples by the great majority o f producers. I have not
scrupled tn express my feeling to individual growers from time to time.
Having a spare day on my hands I
made tbe round of alt tbe principal
retailers aud also wholesalers in Nelson, and the result has been that
former disappointment bas been
increased to disgust aud here are unreasons.
From every firm—and I must express here my sincere thanks to
those men whom I have troubled
With my questions and who without
exception most willingly gave me all
the information in their power—I received the same reports, apples are
sent to them in a wretchedly bad
stale; they are not graded; they are
hadlv packed, and one two eases
were mentioned where the apples in
thc box- have not been of the variety
named on the outside.
In my presence every one of the
firms interviewed by me opened boxes sent to them for sale by,ranchers
in this district and together we took
samples from boxes opened In this
wav. These sample I am sending to
you, sir, that if any person should
he sufficiently interested you might
allow him to see these samples for
himself I have numbered tbe hags
in which the apples are sent for
identification purposes It is not
my       intention to mention
any names in this letter but of this
1 can assure you, the boxes from
which these samples were taken bad
on them the names of owners who
are considered to be
our leading ia the
fruit industry, to whom 1, as a newcomer, in common with others, have
been used to turn for advice.
In one store I was shown a box of
apples purchased from the rancher
owning otic of the largest ranches iu
the district. It was a hox of Baldwins and was in excellent shape, but
the purchaser was in the happy position of being an independent buyer,
thai is he was not in the unfortunate
position of tbe grocers who are forced to take the apples to keep their
customers, hut at another store within a stone's throw nf this one, 1 was
informed that the same rancher had
sent iu apples which were not considered lit  to be exposed for sale.
In the case of one rancher only
Could I bent no cause fnr complaint
rom those men who handled bis apples and I saw for myself some apples of his which were marked "grade
which might well have passed
for "grade 1." But this is the
single oasis in a truly vast desert
and it was refreshing.
Kvery retailer assured me that
every dependence could be placed on
the apples from the American side. I
.uu including iu the samples sent you
one American apple picked at ran
dom while wrapped from a hot chosen at random from the remnants nf a
carload Int.
There was no preferential selection
made in this ease* The American
apple iu every case is quoted nt least
25 cents higher in priee hy retailers
Ihnu the inferior apples they are obliged to take frnm customers The
duty coming into Canada from the
United States is 13 cents per box.
This small amount would hinder no
nne irom buying n hox of apples of
assured quality throughout in preference to a box of thc Inferior apples nt present so frequently expose*!
for sale In the various stores in Nelson.
I do not say that there are no ex-
exceptions tn this almost criminal
stale of affairs hut in my round of
the stores there was but nne man,
as I have already said, whose apples had always heen found to be of
the quality they were represented to
he. There may he and certainly are
other ranchers whose apples are of
of   those

Miller, E. II. Small, E. Patmore
with Judge'Wilson skip. Iloggarth
won an exciting game by a score ni
13—11. At thc commencement ol
the 12th end Judge Wilson had a
lead of 3 but owing to nervousness
or some other unexplained cause, bis
men were unable to place .a single
stono where he wanted them.
George's men, nn the other hand,
could not make a mistake and totalled live points, bringing them out
two ahead, amidst much enthusiasm.
In the evening George Hoggartb's
rink played It. E. Heattie. with I)
J. Johnston, F. Rossitcr and It. McCreery skip. This game caused a
hit of excitement, but in tlie end
MeCreerv pulled nut ahead. Score,
