Vancouver, April 11.���Fruit growing
in British  Columbia is lust    attaining
proportions which promise soon to
make it a serious rival of the mining, lumber and lishiug industries us
a source of wealth. The acreage to he
piuced under cultivation this year will
surpass all former' records, according
to otlicial Information in the possession
of Mr. Tom Wilson of this city, Do
minion  inspector ot   fumigation.
All fruit trees imported Into thi.1
province puss through the hands ol
Mr. Wilson, who enforces a rigorous
inspection. The test consists of a microscopical examination, and ln the
event of the detection uf disease or
the presence of pests the trees are thoroughly fumigated with the vapor ot
hydrocyanic acid.
"It is safe to estimate that considerably over a million fruit trees will be
planted tn various sections of llritish
Columbia this spring," said Mr. Wilson to The Province. "During March,
our busiest month, I inspected a total
of over >;���"..'���,.". and this mouth the fig-
urea will not show any big reduction.
This only refers to Imported trees. The
favorite varieties are apples, pears,
pi aches, plums and prunes. Of these
apples ami peaches constitute the largest number. The trees are principally
secured fioni Oregon, although Iowa
anil Washington make ninny shipments
to llritish Columbia. This of course is
exclusive of the supply furnished by
nurserymen on lhe coast and up-country. Tlie demand lor fruit trees iu recent veins has been so vast that they
could not till all the orders, despite
the Increasing arceage yearly laid out
In   nurseries.
"Fruitgrowers are also obliged to Import strawberry and raspberry plants
from the United States. Already this
sen,ion .several hundred thousand of
both varieties have been Inspected
here. The Oregon nurserymen are enterprising. Every fall they have every
fruit growing seel Ion of the province
canvassed by agents, ami the orders
.it-,, executed  in  the  following spring.
The distribution of the trees and plants
embraces nearlj every dlstrlcl south

the Rookies to the coast, ami the Dominion railway belt Itself. There were
bin shipments this season to the Arrow

Quakes in Mexico.
San Antonio, Tex., April 11���A special
to the Kx press from Monterey. Mexico,
snvs: "Telegraph despatches from

Berlin, April 11.���The imperial and
Prussian loan, amounting to $162,500,-
000, the announcement of which attracted attention and excited comment in
all the capitals of Europe, was offered for subscription today. The issue,
which has been bought by a syndicate of leading Berlin and provincial
hankers, is to bear 4 per cent. Interest
and will not be convertible within a
period of ten years.
The fact that Germany has found it
necessary to issue loans amounting to
$25,000,000 already this year is not regarded here as a cause for any alarm
or distrust in regard to t;.e country's
financial position. The Unsocial community is Inclined to accept the official
explanation that the loans are merely
keeping pace with the greatly increased naval expenses of Germany. While
the loans unquestionably are large for
times of peace, It is realized that the
naval undertakings of the empire, the
Prussian plan for expropriating the
land of the Poles and the project for
extending the state railroads require
an extraordinarily large amount of
Owners    Protected    Against    Excessive
Liens  In   Event of  Failure
of Contractors.
Calgary, April 11.���While the builders, contractors, architects and suppliers of material arc holding indignation meetings in the city of Calgary,
protesting against the shortcomings of
the lien law, a new law bas already
passed the legislature and ready upon
the statutes.
Tbjfc amendment to the statute law
deals with this very case, and was
passed at the recent session of the legislature. As the act Is not retroactive,
the Breckenridge-Lund vs. Travis case
becomes of academic interest merely,
and of importance only to those interested in  It.
By this amendment clause 32, the
one at issue, is struck out, and the
following inserted:
No Hen, except for not more than six
weeks wages In favor of laborers, shall
attach so as to make the owner liable
for a greater sum than the sum owing
by the owner to the contractor at the
time of the receipt by the owner or
the person having superintendence of
the work on behalf of the owner, of notice ln writing of such lien and the amount thereof; or which may become owing by the owner to the contractor at
any time subsequent thereto while
such lien la In effect."
That means that the owner Is not
liable to the man who supplies material
for more than he owes the contractor
for   the   building.
This is followed by other clauses
which refer to the form of notice to
be sent from the man who supplies material to the owner of the building.
The legislation, though passed at the
last legislature, has just been printed.

East for West
Firm of Hansc', Langan aad Knappen
Will Devote this Season to
Grand Forks District.
John F. Langan, of the firm of Hansel,
Langan and Knappen, returned to Nelson last night and was warmly welcomed by many friends. Mr. Langan ls
looking well and has .egained some of
the weight he lost last fall.
Mr. Langan bas spent sveral months
in eastern cities, including particularly
Chicago, New York, Ottawa and Toronto. Many times within the last two
months he has started for Nelson, and
once he was as far as Minneapolis when
an urgent telegram recalled him to Toronto.
The depression that was general ln
every financial centre ln tbe continent
during the autumn and early winter
has, Mr. Langan says, almost entirely
disappeared. While it may take a little
time for commerce and industry to recover from the shock, confidence is already restored. Ue was Interested ln
some large financial schemes the success of which depended to a very large
extent on faith ln the successful development of Canadian Industries ln the
immediate future.
In all his enterprises Mr. tanpn
never lost sight of the task he has set
himself, of assisting In attracting to
Kootenay muscle, brains and money for
the development of the resources in
which he has unlimited faith.
The headquarters ot Mr. Langan and
the firm this year trill not be in Nelaon
but in Grand Forks. They have a large
tract of land ln that locality on which
they propose placing selected settlers.
But Nelson ls not to lose' him altogether. He will spend Saturday and
Sunday of each week here, returning to
the Boundary on Monday mornings.

Crazed With Jealousy.
Montreal, April 11.���Jonn Dillon, murderer of Constable Shea, ln the general
hospital this morning said that for the
past four years he had been paying attentions to Mrs. Pritchard, his landlady.
On the morning of the tragedy Mrs.
Pritchard Informed him that she wsa
to be married to another man in the
course of the next three months. This
threw him Into a violent frenxy and he
determined that this would not take
place. In reply to this Mrs. Pritchard
said she was determined and ordered
Dillon out of the house. But he refused
to get out, whereupon Mrs. Pritchard
took the matter up with the police. Returning with the constable, Dillon says,
Mrs. Pritchard pointed a warrant ln the
hands of the constable, calling out to
Dillon. "This will fix you. Now you will
have to clear out." "This," said Dillon,
"caused me to make up my mind to
fight the tblng out." It was then tbat
he fired at the constable, wounding blm
and after the first shot was fired be lost
control and did not care what he did.
Dillon expressed sorrow that he had
taken any life but put the whole responsibility on Mrs. Pritchard.
Took Sana Advice.
Seattle. April 11.���A special despatch
to the Post Intelligencer from Valdez,
Alaska, says: "The American automobile and crew has left on the steamer
Bertha for Seattle. A public reception
was given them by the chamber of commerce and the crew started to lnauect
tho trail. They went ten miles. Driver
Schuster, when Interviewed, said the
Alaskans had his sympathy, as the
depth of snow prohibited sny chance of
tho automobiles running a mile. He
says he will return to Seattle and ship
for Vladivostok to make up the time
lost on the Alaskan trip. He will at-
tempt to charter the seagoing tug Tal-
aot at Orea to take the car and crew
across to Siberia, It Is doubtful If this
can be done.

Taken in connection with the ravings
about the courage of Sir Wiitnd Laurier in a.lowing *u it,=pect.ui, ot some oi
ttre departments ut Lbs: civil service,
borne of the excuses ottered lor the
clii.dibh incompetence in man}' ol theiu,
arc most  refreshing.
'ihe apology, esprossod briefly, Is
that man., ol tire subordinate officials:
iu Lbs public di-iiariuieuia aie Survivals
oi tba long Conservative regit"", thai
tbe present government n�� therefore not
responsible to] Lbem, ai,u that ihe onl)
r>-.-|��uusiijl.ily on any member ol Lin. administration is lor his own department
from the time DC  bi oame as head.
11 such a contention were adunueu
aJl iesponsibiiii> couid be avoided tiv
the simple process, ni sliullling the ministers round periodically. Then all departments mighi be as foul us most m
lb.ui are now and there would be no
one  to   b.ame.
In defence of Mr. Brodeur, minister
of marine and fisheries, whose depart
mental administration haa been a
pialsewo. thy effort in comic opera, our
esteemed local contemporary borrows
tin' thunder of the Manitoba Fret
rrags WA regret that we cannot find
a paragraph worth quoting. The de
fence, howeve/, is il it tin. depaiiiin-ni
is still officered hugely oy Oonserva
tlve officials. T nut might be believed
by a few inn ml '.it 3-.d inr"fi'ereiit Can
udiuub if they bad not fi en wholesale
dismissals   I'rj.n   ..veiy   o.pttitmeui   to
make   room  for Liberal   corruptlonlats,
ii the] had not seen even the bench
degraded to be ti.t rewaid oi the lowest
type oi  pail.,   "heeler.''
The spoi.B system W84 never familiar ia Cauila u.iiil after 1690, when
il was frauvty inlrotiuced To plead
now, alter twelve years, that no minister is yet master in his own department is simply imbecile. To concede
its truth would be its strongest condemnation.
But even yet the lowest depth has
not been sounded. Apparently conscious tbat uiis defence might prove
inland the .Machine organs have pleaded on behalf ol .Mr. Brodeur that the
b.ame should be laid on ins piedeces-
sors in olb.ee o.nce l&uu.
They have been numerous, but two
were conspicuous. Tbe Urst was Sir
Louis II. Davits whose abject failure
to administer a di partment was rewarded, io tbe eternal disgrace of Sir Wilfrid Laurier, by a seal on the bench ol
hi   Supreme Court of Canada,
But ihe Implied attach on Sir Louis
Davles la nothing to tbe remainder. The
gravami p uf the -Machine defence is
that most ui iii,- Irregularities in the
marine and fisheries department began
under the lion. Raymond Prefontaine,
now dead.    i'"i  abject and  loathsome
cowardice this is the climax even iu
the loul record of the Machine piess.
The living attempt tu take shelter behind   the   graves   of  dead   friends.
We refuse tu discuss the merits of
Raymond Prefontaine. Assuming, with
apologies  to his    memory,    that    the
Appications will be received by the

Nelson, April 8 th, 1908.
treacherous and cowardly defence offered for Mr. Brodeur Is well grounded,
what becomes of the responsibility of
Sir Wilfrid Laurler? He administers
no department, he supervises all Is
this the result of hia supervision? If
so, Canada badly needs a new overseer.
The Vancouver World Is attempting
in its usual unhappy manner to manufacture a charge of unfairness in the
preparation of the provincial voters'
lists. The Victoria Times, also characteristically, takes up the cry. To the
credit of our local Liberal contemporary, it has not been guilty of the same
folly. The World really doesn't charge
anything definitely It merely mentions that at a joint meeting of the executives of the Senior and Junior Liberal Associations of Vancouver City,
tbe members canvassed the possibility
of the Conservatives scrutinizing their
additions.to the list to the extent of Insisting on a test of each applicant's
ability to read, provision for which has
been on the statute for years. Even If
there were proof of such 8n intention,
which is obviously impossible, there
would still be no point, unless tbe Liberals are doubtful of the character of
their applicants. But what does It matter? The slave majority at Ottawa is
certain to pass the Aylesworth amendments to the Dominion Elections Act,
and there will be three or four more
semi-annual revisions of the provincial
lists before there will be another provincial campaign. The nonsense is only a very stupidly conceived attempt to
offset tbe general expression of indignation at the prospect of the rejection
of fair lists and the substitution for
them of lists made by partizans with
unlimited powers.
The telegram received yesterday by
His Worship Mayor Taylor from Aemi-
lius Jarvls and company, of Toronto,
the substance of which was published
in The Canadian yesterday, contains
decidedly good news. While the issue
of schuol debentures is not yet sold,
and while the tedious work of clearing
the way fur the new issue for power
plaul construction is not yet completed,
there is uumistakeable evidence not only tbat Nelson's credit is regarded as
excellent by su well informed a financial
linn, but also tbat the credit of Western
Canadian cities stands very high iu the
old cuuniry where tbat firm is confident
uf disposing ul them. There seems no
reason tu duubt that money for the
building uf the long needed public
school will be available at least as soon
as building operations can profitably be
Tbe best defence of Clifford Sifton
we have beard is offered by an ingenious
Nelson Liberal. Not one in ten thousand Canadians would assert that Sif-
ton's course was "straight," but oue
friend does. Taking an old geometrical
definition that "a straight line is tbe
shortest distance between two points,"
and naming the points poverty and affluence, he asserts tbat Clifford Sifton
lias followed au absolutely straight line.

Pontius  Pilate's  Offer and Strange   Decision���Services   in   Nelson
Churches Tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be the Sixth Sunday
In Lent, the beginning of Holy Week,
commonly called Palm Sunday. During the week tbe church commemorates the Agony In the Garden of Geth-
Bcmune, the Last Supper, and the Passion.
The gospel for the day is the long account by St. Matthew of the Ix>rd's
trial and death. It was the occasion
of a Jewish festival of mercy which
was usually marked by the release of
a prisoner���a custom which the Roman
conquerors in their wise tolerance continued to honor On this occasion Pontius Pilate, who appears rather as a
scholar and philosopher than as a man
of affairs, with an indecision that was
probably characteristic, offered the
Jews their choice, of a pardon for
Christ, accused of sedition, and Bar-
abbas, "a noted prisoner," a robber outlaw. The people, influenced by their
priests, begged mercy for Barabbas,
and death on the cross for Christ.
The choice of the people was finally
accompanied by the defiant yell, "His
blood be upon us and upon our children." And the Jewish race Is still
paying the penalty. Indeed, all human
history can tell no other story comparable to tlie endless suffering of the
Jews, nor can history, science or philosophy account for their miraculous
survival, robbed and oppressed through
all the ages and scattered over every
land  on   earth.
But that choice, if It be for that "the
chosen race" is still being punished,
seems from any point of view Indefensible.
Christ was not accused of any overt
act of offence. He had neither committed
nor counselled any act of violence. He
had spoken ill of none except the
scribes, and only of their hypocrisy. It
is strange that the people could be led
to such a length by such men as the
Pharisees. It would seem that in later
days their hypocrisy, their utter formalism, would be transparent to their
people, and that thely would have lost

Dear Sir,���A very brief reply will do
for Mayor Taylor's attempt to cloud tne
iHSues between lhe councils of l.toT and
I refuse to reply to tne charges of
dishonesty,    if Mayor  Taylor  believes
his own words, it is his duty  to proap-
onte me.
A.s to the comparative statement of
revenue from the Kairview pipe line,
for December, 1M07, and March, 1908,
my authority io the present city engineer; the mayor's I presume, ia the hon-
eBt Mr. Jisckowicz.
As to the loose rock around the feed
pipe which could have been moved
when constructing the plant for $;*��,
why didn't Mr, Shack In on have this
moved, or draw the attention of Mr.
McCulloch, the engineer in charge?
Mr. Bhackleton was in charge of all the
work at that time and WOM responsible
to Mr. McCulloch only tor the work to
be properly done. VThyVae it not done?
There has been no change in conditions.
Blither it Was necessary Ihen, or il is
not necessary now. In either ortse the
fault Is his.
As to dismissing Mr. Dickson, i only
need to say that Mr. Dickson resigned.
and IiIh reaignalion waa accepted by
the council.
in regard to Mr. smith's appointment,
it was made by the council alter calling
for applications. Mr. Smith was cot a
personal friend or mine. I had never
heard of him until ho took charge after
his  application.
And as to the tramway deficit of
$7,000, Mayor Taylor known this to be
false, and has been c��jrrecrea by one of
his aldermen in the city council chamber.
The remainder of tho mayor's alleged
defence Is reliance on the reputation of
William Bhackleton. To those who
know William Shackle ton best, I needn't
say  any more.
Yours  faithfully,
