(Toronto Globe.)
Whatever happens at the Kovomber
flection, the United states is    likclv
to have   for   the   four years    from
March next a crwlitabh chief magistrate presiding over the dostotnteu ot
the republic.       it is to be a   choice
between Mr. Taft and Mr. Bryan, and
■ach of them is well qualified to lill
the position.    Each has scoured   the
nomination   liy the  national convention of his party on the first ballot,
thus creating an unoreeedt-ntwl situation.    Mr. Taft had the advantage of
President Roosevelt's .agnetic     personality, while Mr. Bryan had      the
equally effective influence of his own
Which of them has really the greater endowment of administrative   and
legislative ability it is impossible to
say.    Mr. Taft   has had administrative experience both   varieU and extensive; Mr. Bryan has a rare faculty    for   idealization   chastened into
practical moderation by repealed political disappointments.     If Mr.    Taft
is the  more    likely to   make a safe
president, Mr. Bryan Is the      more
Hkely to prove a tar-seel tig one.     As
between   men   so differently endowed
and equipped the people must choose
and they can hardly make any   such
mistake as   would afterward prompt
tho wish that they had chosen      the
defeated candidate.
The presidency of tbe Umt-wl States
is now one of the great public offices
ot Hi« world—is, in fact, second to no
other, the whole worm is therefore interested in the man who tills tiie position. Neither Mr. Taft nor Mr.
Bryan needs any introduction to the
statesmen and publicists of foreign
nations. Each of them is better
known abroad, if not at home, than
any former new president was, and
eaeh of them is respected wherever ho
is known.
The various peoples that make up
the British Empire may look forward
with the most implicit confidence to
a continuance of the pleasant relations in which Great Britain and the
United States stand to each other.
While tire trend of events is not likely to lead to a formal alliance be-
tweeen the two nation , each passing
year is likely to bring them closer
together in the bonds of national
amity, if not the practice of international co-operation. In this aspect
of the pending selection of a President Canadians have n special interest, for each has been repeatedly a
visitor in Canada, and each has won
as a sojourner the good opinion of all
with whom he came in contact. If
Canadians do not; feet like wishing
either of the candidates success it is
because the election ol one implies
the defeat of the other.

BUSH FIRE AT HOSMER
Medicine Hat, July 17.—Tho adjourned inquest into Lhu death oi
John Nicholson, one of the seven
inch k;lled in the C.l'.lt. wreck on
July Uth, way concluded yesterday.
After being out three quarters of an
hour the jury returned a verdict saying the cause uf the collision was
the failure ol Operator Ritchie to
note iu his clearance paper to engine
702 that train 17 had nut arrived and also that Engineer Nicholson
failed to check the train register and
ascertain for himself whether the
clearance was correct.
"Wo also note," said the foreman,
"that Operator Ritchie had been
working four huurs overtime each day
during tour days previous to the accident aad that he had been un duty
fur twelve hours previous to Issuing
the said clearance.'
Ritchie, who skipped across* the
boundary, has not been heard of
since.
BLACK HANDS ESCAPE
Five out of the nine Italian
members of the Black Hand society,
who were awuting trial in the Ferine
lockup, made good their escape yesterday morning by digging through a
concrete floor and tunneling under
the building. The watchman at tl*
brewery saw live men making their
way west along the track early yesterday morning and it is surmiiea
that these were the Black Hands
maliing their way to Elko and the
boundary, It would seem that they
had help from the outside, such as
being supplied with tools and belli--,
directed in which way to go, this latter being necessary, as all the men
were strangers in this part of the
country. So fur no clue has been
found as lu their whereabouts.
THE SPANISH    ARMADA
Last Monday was the anniversary
of the defeat of the Spanish Armada,
1588. The Armada consisted ul one
hundred and twenty ships manned by
8,000 sailors and carrying 20,00U
[Hers. The loss of tho Marquis til
Santa Cruj., the admiral, the day
after the float set sail, caused some
delay but they arrived oil the coast
of Holland in July hut were thrown
Into disorder ti\ the strategy of

The work of the opposition during
the session of the hou.se Just closed
has reflected little credit upon Mr.
Borden's party.
Hansard's report for tire last session shews that Mr. Foster led all of
parliament as a talker, having laken
up over 624 columns, which cost
$.'(,000. This, in addition to the pay
of $2,500 makes pretty high pav for
an obstructionist like Mr. Foster,
who dellgWs in the sound of bis own
voice.
We are told that there are two
factors in the production of wealth-
land and labor. Here in East Kootenay we add two more: water and
enterprise. Then, following the advice of Horace Greeley, by roiling
■brains with the fertilizer we have a
combination that cannot he beaten.
The land and   the water .ire     often
far apart and Ihen it takes labor to
bring    them   together by means    of
iltcnes, flumes   or   what not.     The
land ha s been      here for a   hundred
thousand years and the laborers have
>d  idle' in the market  places    tte-
m "There is none to hire us." And
, behold, the brain-; have been applied, the laborers sel  to work,   and

AS A FRUIT COUNTRY
\    WRITER    EXPRESSES    HIS
OPINION ON THIS DISTRICT
Editor Herald;
It is a matter of general observation that faith in the horticultural
possibilities of the Kootenay valley
has made rapid strides of late,
While there are still some rather
skeptical, the main body ot belief Is
that East Kootenay will lie one of the
the finest districts for intensive farming and fruit growing.     This confid-
oe has arisen   from a better know-
ilgc of conditions, the influence ol
thi' spread of literature, through the
Farmer's Institute, hut more particularly through the ocular Hcmonsira-
t'ion afforded by those, as yet few,
i are making a certain success
The orchards <>f W. Hamilton, the
Mission and others have proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that small
fruits and the hardier varieties ot the
irger destduous fruits can he grown
most successfully.
Man is a gregarious animal, he goes
with the herd and there is little
doubt that before long everyone will
have come to realise the possibilities
if our valley, but here as elsewhere,
intelligence and the study of the particular conditions found in this district will count and many of the mistakes made elsewhere may be avoided. II wculd lie well if everyone
nterested in agriculture and horticulture would join our local farmer's Institute and receive, not, only the
benefit ol ether's local ex|>crience bill.
' io the scientific investigation made
by the government the literature el
which is freely supplied to members.
While the subject 1s yet somewhat
xper I mental    and   we have a great
leal to   learn of   methods   for   our
particular locality, there are a    few
things which arc established by com-
TJIK   PAPER   THAT   IS   BEAD   ISV   THE   PEOPLE

iimn and scientific observation, hero
(| elsewhere. Vital questions ol
■st, aridity, etc., adjusl themselves
connection with the growth ol
lit in the valley and It would be
well lo note a few observations re-
irding these.
Everyone must have noticed thai on
ii' cool nights, an ascent from a
higher to a lowei level is attended
wiih nn increase ol temperature. In
iv oases the lowei level is quite
damp and cool, while ihe top ot the
hill is drj and warm. lie must
have also heard how Ihe garden on
the upper level has escaped the frost,
which seized the lower one. The explanation is simple The cool air,
due i«i Ihe radiation ol the earth's
licai. being benvv, settles hi the
low places and if the evening ho
calm, forms a cold stratum steadily
Increasing In height during the nighi,
tin- colder air is on the bottom
and the warmer layers on the top.
If a wind arise there will lie more
or less a mixture of these layers and
the cold air will he adulterated by
the warmer air from above. Another matter of common observation is,
thai nt>, a country becomes denuded
of timber, more winds prevail. These
observations leaW to two conclusions,
first: that the country as a whole
will he less and less liable to frosts
(Im- lo the greater circulation of air
and secondly, which is important to
Ihe prospective fruit grower, that
bench lands even if two or three
hundred feet above the valley arc
likely to escape frosts and are tho
most desirable.
Anothor thing which demands our
attention and particularly to one
who has chosen the bench lands, is
the question of water. While we have
heen fortunate this last season and
tins spring in having a greater rainfall than usual, a fact which has
aroused peoples' attention, to the
possibilities of a soil with sufficient
moisture, Ihe fact nevertheless remains, that we cannot depend on
nature's provision in this respect,
and few, having gone to a considerable initial outlay, can afford to
have even one crop fail through
drought. It may he that under lav-
■Jiahle conditions of soil and cultivation larger trees may thrive, but-
small fruits need plenty of water and
it is doubtful if it is wise to    plant
Ollt an -mlwiid *jii gnwtll*- ai'il -without some provision in tiie way o(
irrigation.
Though the month of June was
considered quite humid, only two
Incites of rain fell at Cranbrook, ami
this month up to the nineteenth, only
a little over two-tenths of an inch
jell. When it is considered that with
even thirty inches of rainfall annually, it is deemed beneficial to irrigate,
and with twenty, almost a necessity,
it. will be seen that we are to be
classed as in a semi-arid belt.
The necessity of irrigation will,
however, depend very materially, not
only on the crop grown, but the texture uf the soil and tiro degree ol cultivation. Smiie soils art' much mere
retentive of the moisture they receive during the beginning ol the season than others and with careful
cultivation can he made tu bold it
for a considerable length of time,
l'lay or loam holds the moisture better than sand or gravel. A light
cultivation after rain ensures a dry
powdery surface, which prevents
porn Hon from the moitrtci noil lw
iieatb.
However, a great deal of the soil
in Easl Kootenay is very sandy and
gravelly, An inspection of the
railway cuttings along the Crows
Nest line between Cranbrook and
Elko will reveal a vast preponderance of light, sandy, gravelly soil
nnretcntive of moisture where irrigation will always be necessary.
Another consideration is Ihe question of lire domestic water supply.
Ten acres will he quite sufficient at
most for a fruit farm and springs
and creeks are only found at infrequent intervals. The irrigation
ditch will come to be also the prime
source of domestic supply for these
blocks. Pure cold water will be
made possible through a raising ol
the irrniind wafer level from irrigation seepages. This has been the
ease In irrigated countries everywhere, wells, even ln-ing now sunk
for irrigation purposes to collect the
lepaige of.other irrigated lands. The
vel of tlio ground water in places
has been raised from eight to ten
feet:of surface.
We have a great future hefore us
i an irrigated country with Inten-
ve farmingand large populations to
the unit area, but many of tlte
schemes will require considerable
capital and can only be attained
through co-operative enterprise. East
Kootenav offers great inducements to
the capitalist in this connection and
io dinht the smaller ditches which
are now being constructed are but
tiie forerunner, of larger ones to
come.

NORTH COUNTRY NEW

Robert .It-mrings has been appoint-1
nl to see that hush fires do nnt de-i
Btroy merchant able timber in Skcena
district. He will draw a salary of
$100 a month or thereabouts and expenses. Before securing the appointment be was tbe Conservative:
'boss" at Port Simpson.
Phil Hlokey, one of the best known
mining men on the coast, was a
passenger on the Cottage City on
Frirlav, en route from Whin-horse, f
Yukon, to Seattle, Wash., where he
makes his home. He was man-affier
of the Ivanhoo mine at Sattdon fur
many years.
Business men were interviewed during the week by tho license collector,
Must of them pay smilingly, others
want in know why tin- goverrrmen't
doesn't spend money In Prince liu-
ncri. seeing that so much money is
collected in it.
There is nothing new that can be
reported respecting townsite matters.
There aro rumors of differences Im--
tween the governmen1 and the
railway company over the plans ol
the townsite; but as the Dominion
government telegraph Une has Ireen
down during the week, except for
few minutes once or twice, it was
not possible to gol ciiiniiiiiiiicat'ioii
with Victoria. One of the rumors
is that the differences were over the
water front; another is that the officials who were here two weeks ago
are to he back again tonight or io-
morrow. A couple of small buildings are under way: one in Knoxville
for a fish market, and one in Hacon-
ville for a stove store. About 200
neon-le arrived during the week, and
the departures numliered as many or
more, there being no show to get
work here except in the railwav construction camps, and that is a kind
of work which skilled mechanics and
clerks arc not at all adapted for.
A year ago the writer hall no
trouble to write eonv for the four
nages .of The Empire. Then the
town had but, one "street" and but
few people; now the town has several
streets" and 400 to 500 people.
Then Tom Dunn and Kenny Munro
and Alec Fraser and Jack Leggatt
and George Phillpott and Pete Anderson all had somethine to sav during the    week   out of which  a news
tern could he framed up. Now these
men are so busy making monev that
thev haven't time to talk: and the
.lohiinic-come-latelies cart  only     talk
ihotrt the weather, a subject       that
would be hovcotted in Prince Rupert.
The hoys who returned from Queen
Charlotte Islands on the last trip
uf the Amur brought back a number
r>r Indian curios. One is on exhibition in .1. A. Kirknatrick's store.
It is a .sculptured figure of a man
done in wood, and must be over 100
rears old. Another curio in the
same store is a design of n coat-of-
arms for Prince Rupert, It Is done
in water colors and is n ennvn^-baek
duck floating on Tuck's inlet under an
open umbrella.
This forenoon at 10.10 o'clock there
were 7a men sitting on the fi.T.P.
wharf; seven were fish-in"1 two were
Pntlmr Little's peanuts. 03 were
smoking, and none wore r.ihiproofs or
had umhrpllafj.
There will he a meeting or the directors of The Empire Printing company. Limited, at the registered office of the eompanv on Rupert road,
Prince Rupert., on Tuesday, .Inly 11,
at 2 o'clock p.m. Shareholders may
expect a dividend for the three
months enlling -Tune -loth soon afterwards.
lohn Dean, an ex-mayor of Rossland and now a rel estate dealer of
Victoria, was in Prince Rupert two
days this week, returning south on
the Princess Beatrice. Mr. Dean is
ne of the owners o a company chartered hy the provincial legislature to
build and operate electric and gas
works on Kalen island, and his trip
north was in the interests of his

Spokane Chroniele: Hazard M.
Wentworth, president .of Ihe Wentworth tt Kino; Mining company, one
if the best known pioneer printers
and mining men of Spokane, died suddenly at his mining elahn a short
distance out of Rathdrnm. Idaho,
Tuesday afternoon.
Information regarding Ihe death of
Mr. Wentworth is quite meagre here
as yet, but it is believed that the
olid pioneer died of hear! failure. The
body is said to be on ils way here
at the present time. Tbe property
owned by the Wentworth & King
Mining company is said to he proving
nf exceptionally hiph value in zinc,
and Mr. Wentworth as president of
tho company has been working almost incessantly for a long time
getting the mine into shape to nay
its owners a profit. Machinery has
recently been InstallfH atul according
to reports considerable <>re has already been handled to the satisfaction of those interested in the mining
company. Mr. Wentwmth's years of
lahors were about' to he crowned with
success when  death claimed him.
Hazard M. Wentworth came here in
18fifl and worked on the old Spokane Review before the Spokesman
publication was begun. Ho was for
n number of years a member of the
Spokane typographical union and was
ono of Hie best known printers here.
Mo has scores of friends in this city
who will mourn his death. To those
who have already heard of his death
the newR comes as a shock.
The deceased is said to have been
somewhere near 70 years of age and
is survived bv a wife and one son, j
Charles Wentworth, a member of the

A Michigan editor retired from the
business and his good-bye is chronicled in the following language: "The
undersigned retires from the paper
with the conviction that all is vanity. From the hour his paper was
first started to the present time he
has been solicited to lie on every
given subject, and can't, remember
having told a wholesome truth without diminishing his subscription list

circumstances of trial, and having a
thorough contempt for himself, he retires in order to recruit his moral
eonstitution."

From the days the children of Israel

LORD ROBEItTS
The coming ef Lord Hobcrts, first
the Tercentenary celebration, and
afterwards, us we all hope, to the
western portions of Canada, is an
event of unusual importance, says the
Toronto Mail and Empire. Thai
Hie great general will be made the
guest of the city of Toronto is lo bn
expected. That be will be received
with enthusiasm hy all the citizens,
nnd especially by those who served
under him in 'South Africa, goes
without saying.
Lord Roberts is famous in military
history as n man who won his greatest victories after he bad retired in
to comparative seclusion. Mis cnrcui
in India was tbe most brillianl since
CHve. At the end ol it hu wrote
Forty-One. Years in India," a hook
which he supposed to be the complete
story of his life. Then, after lite old
soldier bad accepted an appointment
which seemed to place him on tbo
shelf, the war in the Transvaal brolfe
out. Strange as it may appear, 'ho
war office did not think .! despat'h-
iug 'him at once, to the scene of the
trouble. The- veteran was passed
coolly by, and the qualifications of
Kitchener and Bullor considered. Finally, Sir Uedvers was Rent, nnd aflci
Ids arrival things went well lot a
few weeks. Hitherto the lU'ltish bid
suffered one reverse alter another, and
Kimbcrley, Ladysmith and Matching
were besieged. Everywhere the
Boars were triumphant." "Wait *M
Muller comes," said the .uoplc. And
they waited.
For a time, under General Bullor,
matters looked favorable. But. suddenly a long series of tosses was reported. Magcrstontein, Stromherg,
Colenso, followed swiftly one upon
another, and the British people became alarmed. Then came the call
for Roberts. At Colenso the only
son of this renowned soldier had been
killed in performing a deed which won
for him the Victoria Cross; and at
the name the people's thoughts turned to the little man in Ireland. They remembered suddenly
bis great work in India, a work
which the brilliant achievements of
Kitchener on the Nile had temporal1
ily eclipsed. There was a demand
that into Roberts' hands should b«
confided the destiny of South Ahica,
a demand which could not be resisted. So Roberts was asked to take
hold, and putting away bis private
crief, the old soldier left for Cape
Town, and witrh him General Kitchener aud half a dozen other men who
had apparently been overlooked hy the
war office. The subseipient course of
the war can be summed up in the
statement that not after Lord Hobcrts' arrival did British arms
tain a single important defeat.
For some time after the uri'al of
Lord Roberts at the Cape lhu people
of England beard little ol his doings,
and as they thought ol betcagunron
Ladysmith, Kimbcrley and Mnfcking,
thev became impatient for action by
him. Let him do something was Ibe
universal cry. When, however, everything was in readiness the order for a
movement was given, aud this telegram flashed north and east, and
west, to put new life in despairing
liearts. "Tell all ranks that I have
this day invaded the Orange Free
State wiib a large army, particularly strong In cavalry nnd guns." Three
days Inter Kimbcrley was relieved
Two weeks more and Lndysmith was
free. Tbe march continued to Bloem-
tontcln, the whole British army
spreading out tor miles on either side
of the railway, sweeping the country
of Boers. Breathlessly the world
awaited the advance on Pretoria. It
was known that this place might well
Ire lield for months, so strongly was
ii fortified. But Roberts' bluff was
not culled, as the head of bis column
appeared the last Boer train slid out,
and, true tn his promise, the Commander-in-Chief led the guards into
the capital. For hours he sat, on
his horse while the urmv marched
past, s.iluliiig him.
"You must be n happy man today,
sir.'  said a staff officer at bis side.'
"No." fa. answered, after a pause,
"not happy—thankful."

SPLENDID GAME
There never was a better game ol
bail played in Cranbrook or anywhere
else than the one between Mcy'ie ami
Cranbrook last Friday evening. lively from start to finish, with plenty
tif incidents, the game was enjoyed
all the way through. Friendly rival-
ly there was, to be sure, but no s*itm
nf had temper or bitterness on cither
side. The Mt.yie team wore gentlemen, every mother's son of them,
,tiiil conducted themselves as such.
The following comprised the Movie
team: Gamble, manager; Avers,
center field; Kairtm, lei base; Mo-
Clary, catcher; Potter, short stop;
Fries, pitcher, Crowe, Lind base. |<y-
tes, left lielil; Hereford, renter field;
Henean, eight field; Curtis, pitcher
The Cranbrook line-up consisted of
M. Miller, catcher; O. Jor-eousen,
pitolwr; McKeo, 1st, base; O. Neilson.
ml base; W. Matthews, 3rd base;
W, Miirton, slmrt stop; K, Johnson,
lefl field, W, DoBock. center field, J.
Fulton, right field.
liiines Hales     noted as umpire    to
tlio entire satisfaction of both teams.
The resull id the game was  i to 5
in favor   of the homo team.
In the evening a smoker was tendered the visiting team nt the Cosmopolitan hotel," Proprietor i: Ii.
Small and Manage) F. W. iteeves did
themselves proud with the spread
they pnl up on the short notice they
had, and the way iu which the meats,
salads, strawberries and lee cream
lisappeared was not glow. After
the inner man had been satisfied and
igars lighted speeches and songs
were the order of the day.
I>. J. Rimer, occupying the position
f chairman, .with credit to himself,
his native Irish wit keeping overyone
in tho best of good humor. . 'The
toast of the King and the President of the United Slates was dulv
honored and then followed talk's
from Messrs. Kamm, I>. .1. McSweyn.
F. K. Simpson, .lames Hates and
lliers.
F. W. Reeves and 0. Sullivan rendered several songs, which were exceedingly well received. N. C. C.
Salmon, of the Edison theatre, presided at the piano, -fames Hates recited "Jim Marshall's New
Piano'* and other classics.
More talks, more jokes, more
music and more mirth brought it to
Ihe hour when the chairman called
for the National Anthem of East
Kootenay, "We're Here Because We're
Here," which, like a dissolving view
changed into "Auld I-ang .Svnc," and
then into "God Save the King," and
brought to a conclusion one of the
plcasantiest evening's ever .spent in
Cranbrook.
One feature which was paramount
throughout the evening was the spirit
of good fellowship shown bv the
Moyie boys. In their talks each and
everyone of them spoke in the most
kindly way of the Cranbrook hovs.
It is to he hoped that many such
games will be played between the
lake city and Cranbrook.

\  NEW ERA   FOR    CRANBROOK
A SHORT STORY WITH A MORAL
Seventeen, eighteen, nineteen,
twenty—twenty-one, and then they
topped. "What does it mean'.'"
said the sporting editor io the young
man who writes the society column,
I'hey arc both one and the same individual so you sec be was talking to
himself—what can it mean? Twenty-
guns is a royal salute, he remembered that from his boyhood's
days in Devcnport dockyard, but why
twenty-one guns today, July -2nd, in
this year of grace, IH08? ' He pondered for a while and kept his think
lank at work and at last he got it
r thought he did- Why, yes, of
toursc, the Prince of Wales is landing
in Quebec today for the Tricentuary
vlehraliun and that salute is no
ioubt in his honor. Then the scribe's
thoughts wondered hack over the
a of t hree hundred years. He
Cabot, Cariiei, sir Humphrey
Gilbert and Chantplain and other
old-bimc builders of Canada. He
Wolf and Montcalm on the
Heights of Abraham, and then his
houghts wandered to the new era of
Canada as she is today, nnd the
Ihouizrht came to his mind that the
twenty-one gun salute really did
precurso a new era for Canada and
Canadian prosperity. Just as he
as iu the midst ol Ibis reverie the
nrly shape of Edward Elwclt hove
i sight anil his Sonorious voice ask-
I if there was any news. The police court reporter, who is the same
Individual as the sporting editor and
the young man who writes tho society column, then told Mr. Elwoll
about the twenty-one guns and what
they signified, finishing up with the
remark that they heralded in a new
era for Canada, As the city editor,
who, hy the way, is the same gaxaboo
as the sporting editor, the young
man who writes the society column
ind the police court: reporter, was
tolling his little story he could not
help noticing that a smile was gradually breaking over El welt's genial
face, which, as the sentence came to
an end broke into a hearty laugh.
"Yoll are quite right, old ' chap!"
said he. "It is the beginning of «
new era iu the Cranbrook district.
Th.il was not a royal salute hut 1
have iust commenced blasting slump--,
mi my Irrigated laud just south ol
the town. Ves, it moans a new era
because Irrigated fruit lands have
made their debut in tbe Cranbrook
district." Then both laughed, bill
thev knew it was the truth.

HINTS ON FARMING:
GOVERNMENT TO SELL FRUIT
LANDS '
The arrival of settlers from the
prairie provinces for the fruit land
of the Kootenay is almost a daily
occurrence. Singly and in parties
would-be fruit growers troop in and
today between Proctor and Nelson,
twenty miles away, at the outlet of
the main body of Kootenay lake, the
west arm ot those waters is now so
thickly settled that there remains
little 'property to be bad. The contiguity to Nelson is perhaps the reason why these lands have been taken
up In preference to others. For after
all. they arc merely narrow strips
under the mountains along the lake
edge.
Settlers are now going further
fruit fair en 1 a"e^ aTW* ^ 's P*"obable that the next
great rush will take place at Creston, which is at the head of Kootena_
lake, about seven miles from the International boundary line. Here is
wide valley, delta shaped, at the
mouth oT Goat river. From headland
to headland across that mouth would
be about seven miles and tbe sides of
the valley slope to a point about six
miles in from Kootenay river. There
are at least 30,000 acres of available
fruit land in this triangle. Quite
a settlement has> already grown up.
This yeaT alone have been planted
40,000 trees. The ground is mostly
bench lurid of as good a top as can
be found in any river-bottom in
these districts. But above and below, south and north, of this triangle
are scattered patches of land seven
miles nojjlfc from the bmindary line,
twenty-two miles north of Sirdar.
Including some land at Creston,
about 1.000 acres altogether in one
block, the provincial government has
at its disposal some 3,000 acres of
land now under survey. There is
not any of this land but which is
arable there is none of it which is
more than one mile from a rallroadc
some, indeed, has two railroads, the
C.P.R and the Great Northern. It
tins been determined that the whole
of this desirable orchard site shall be
immediately surveyed into ten
blocks and the survev will he
pleted bv the end of August.
Some time about the middle of
Sentember the provincial government
will auction off the whole of these
3,011(1 acres in separate blocks at so
much per acre. In order to attract
settlers the most favorable terms are
being triven—10 per cent down, 111 tier
cent each vear. It is expected that
there will "he a big rush to take up
this property.

The ginseng plant is found in the
woods of Eastern Canada and the
states that as far west as Wisconsin
ind Minnesota. It is usually found
with maple, hceeh, hemlock and such
timber. It is essentially a plant' ot
the shade but has been cultivated
quite largely of late. In cultivating
conditions as nearly like those of a
shady wood as possible are given by
covering the plot with a lath frame
to break the direct sunlight. Forest
leaves and mold is also used to build
up the soil ot the plot; under these
circumstances it cannot, lie expected
that very much ginseng ro<r1 would
lie cultivated especially as it requires
some three   to six years to produce
root enough for marketing. But of Sir Wilfrid Laurier and hi

The Literal ministry Is still strong

The most conspicuous achievements
of the Laurier regime have been the
Fielding tariff, the national transcontinental railway, the development of
the west, anil the great advance
made by Canada toward a quasi-
national status in her relations to the
empire and to foreign countries. The
first tariff, adopted eleven years ago,
proved a. phenomenally successful revenue-producer, and it has continued
to be ao under its various modifications. It was adopted after a
thorough study of the industrial Gondii ions ol the country, and experience
has shown that it comes nearer than
any previous Canadian tariff to the
happy mean between absolute free
trade and extreme protection. No
matter how Ibe persimnl adminis-tra-
tinns may change the Fielding tariff
is quite certain to remain the fiscal
system of Ibe country for many years
to come.
Tbe National Transcontinental railway is in a very special sense tbe
premier's personal monument. Its
inauguration was largely due to his
personal courage ami breadth of
view, and with ils progress and usefulness his name will always be close-
lv associated. Tbe appearance of
