Edmonton'B Aspirations 25 Years Ago���
An Interesting Relic.
K. !���'. Gigot, manager of tlie Hudson's
Hay Company's store In Nelson, has In
his possession a copy of the sixth number of ihe first volume or lha Edmonton Hiiiieiin, the publication of which
was begun by frank Oliver, now mln-
isier of the Interior, in 1881.
Tin- Bulletin w-as then a four-page
paper, bul the pages were about six
incites long and four inches wide. It
was then a weekly.
The most Interesting thing In Mr. 111-
goi's copy is the editorial urging united
effort on the pari or the citizens of
Kiioinonion to secure a semi-monthly
mull service to and from Winnipeg and
Fori Maileoil. That was 2ii years ago.
Now Itdmonton is ihe capital clly of a

Sketch of Members of Argonaut Crew-
Winners' Advantage In Having
Pick of Their  Country.
The Ilelglnn eight carried off the
world's championship and the grand
Challenge cup al the Henley regatta
held yesterday, and tor the lirst time n
foreign crew will hold lhe trophy for 12
months. A great deal was expected
frotu thi' Argonauts ol Toronto. Every
man In the Canadian crew was a giant
lu stature and trained to fhe limit. They
defeated Hie First Trinity (Cambridge)
crew and Ihe Thames rowing club, but
went down lo defeat before the Cant-
hrldge crew In lhe semi-finals, The victory of the Nautique de linuil eight was
unexpected, and the time made, 7 minutes and '.i seconds, Is IS seconds over
ihe record made on the some course by
Ihe New College eighl lu 1JS97. For
some unexplained reason lhe I.eander
club did not enter a crew, and it was
known that the sympathies of the members were with Ihe Argonauts. Tho
l.i-anders held the championship for
nine years.
Three lengths separated the Belgians
rrom the Englishmen at the llnlsh ot
Ihe race, and II was apparent that tlie
Canadian and Cambridge crews were
no match at any time for lhe plucky
foreigners. They have contested annually, and the pick of Belgium's besl
oarsmen proved that It is not u wise
course to divide up the crews In the
manner adopted by the English. The
universities of Ihe I'nlted States and
England enter a number of boats, and
the clubs of ihe various cities also take
purl. In the second heat, when the
Argonauts defeated the Thames Rowing
Club, the time made was ri seconds
Taster than the winners were called on
lo row In order to defeat the Trinity
Hall crew in yesterday's race. The
victory of the Belgians was unexpected,
and now that tlte faial thirteenth contest tor lhe championship has resulted
In Ihe downfall ol the crack loams or
England and America, It Is to be hoped
Unit llle next regatta will find the trophy In the hands of a crew rrom the
Canadian side. The Belgians met detent year alter year, but Iheir persistence ended in victory. They deserve
lhe congratulations showered upon
Ihem, and will, no doubt, make every error! to retain the proud posltupi won
arter so ninny struggles against tbe
best   oarsmen In the world.

action would be taken In New Zealand
if an ice trust Increased lhe price of the
commodity to consumers 10 get more
than a reasonable profit.   Ho said:
"The solution of that problem is simple. If any man or company should
buy up ull the Ice plants, control the
supply of Ice on hand, and, then push
up the price to consumers, we would
Immediately build ice plants and give
the people all the ice they wanted at a
small price and fair profit. We had a
similar condition to arisea t home in
the coal industry, and we put it down
When the question of the government
regulation of railroads and other great
aggregations of wealth which oppressed the masses was refererd to, Sir Joseph said the measures taken would
have to be drastic to be effective. He
suggested aa_ a remedy extensive publicity obtained by an Impartial and
thoroughly honest system ot investigation. Concerning the operation of railroads in New Zealand, the premier
"Wo have the largest per capita of
wealth in the world In New Zealand,
and we have proportionately the lowest rate of taxation. We have the
cheapest public utilities and probably
the most efficient. Our railroads haul
people cheaper lhan any in the world,
and nowhere are tbe railroads operated more economically. Whenever we
lind that any public; utility is earning
more than 3 1-2 [ier cent., wo reduce the
charges to the public."

Wo have on several occasions commented on the Brothler oasi- which is
now a familiar and even notorious one
throughoul the Dominion, but we revert

events, resulted in u conviction Lhal

Ottawa, ir, as our special despatches
from Vancouver show, there was an attempt i') prevent the landing of the notorious criminal al Vancouver, after the
Blrenuous efforts that had been, put
forth by tlie provincial authorities to
Beeu re hi* return to Canada, and 11
these attempts were made under Instructions from Nit.' authorities al Ottawa, it i.s high time for the whole
country to arouse and demand an explanation fur this strange procedure
We do nol for a moment doubl tho correctness of the despatch, knowing as
we do the Bource from which it came,
ami we are the more readily moved to
resume a discussion of the affair be
cause of further knowledge thai the
whole department ot justioe in British
Columbia is Incensed thai Bteps should
have been taken to prevent the execution of lis concerted plans for Broth-
ler's recapture.
After weeks of unavoidable delay,
through Brothler's appeal to Washing-
ion for some Interference In his behalf, and afler a decision, both apparent
and real, that no help would be afforded
tbe Bcoundrel from that quarter, he waa
brought under police escort to the place
where his lirsl trial had boen held.
The eoasl papers Intimated thai on his
arrival there his landing was opposed
hy the Immigration agonl of Lho Do
minion government, bul they wen' sin
gularly reticent In as much as littlowaa
known ami probablj nothing suspected
���i., to iiit motives which prompted lhal
officer to act. it was learned only yesterday that ho had imperative instructions irom Ottawa lo prevent the land-
���Iiik of Brothler on the ground iimi tie
is an "undesirable alien,' the flrsl plea
oi the .son ihai has been made in any
case in Vancouver and as far as we recall in the whole of Canada.
Its  race  this would  seem  like a
Prminoii effort of some high official
'pi'otec Brothler Irom the rigors of
tho law. ami until some explanation ol
ihis extraordinary case la forthcoming
there will lurk in the minds of the Justioe loving people of Canada a suspicion
that criminal procedure is losing : >me
of the tone and character which has
made ihis country an undesirable Held
for criminal operations.
Tho clly of Vancouver, in which
Brothier was arrested, is not noted for
Mr prudlshneas In the matter of morality, a fair degree of liberty being the
privilege allowed every one who lives
within Its limits. No man who has a
right to live   anywhere    can Consldor
himself oppressed in lhat city, though
there are many arrests for petty offences, nm the case of Brothier was one
so uncommonly rank and disgusting
that special efforts were made by the
police to acquaint themselves with his
behavior. Tlie result wus that he was
arraigned on a combination of lhe vilest
charges upon which anyone has ever
appeared in a criminal docket in Canada. The remainder of the story is
familiar, the charges were not all pressed conviction was Instant, sentences
were made lo run concurrently and yet
alter less (ban) a third of his term ot
penal servitude he Is pardoned oul under the general Clemency Act. and no
oni appears lo know why. Was there
any douht as to his guilt? was there any
limit to the feelings of disgust lhat such
a creature could come lo Ihis province
ami play his damnable arts? Did anyone
breathe less freely for the virtue and
innocence of the pure when he was
sentenced? Did the trial judge recommend him for clemency? Was any petition for mercy forwarded in his behalf? Were the ordinary methods of
procedure followed in order to procure
iiis release? To each and every one ol
these Questions an emphatic negative
answer must be recorded. And yet, aciing under instructions, an agent of the
Ottawa authorities lakes sleps lo prevent his re-eommlltal for trial, or even
his recovery by the officers of the law.
Hy what manner or means has Ihis
transpired? Who has a pull, and how
can ther be such a pull withl those in
tlit high and responsible positions in
the gift id' the country? Are there any
secrets behind Ihis strange affair? li
bo, the country will want to know them
now, or we will blush for a long time to
come at our boasted flawless justice.
This Is by no means a political question, though we have noticed thai few
of the Liberal papers, make any reference to the unfortunate affair. Lei ii
he kept out of lhe sphere of polities
unless ii \ti already in it, and if il is.
hi it be lifted out at once and placed on
a fooling where our boosted equality ot
rights may be sustained. We feel the
more keenly upon the subject because
In this very cily there languishes in

The Bister city of Itossland, which
had no official celebration on Dominion
May nr tor July 4Hi for Its American
citizens, is advertising a union celebration and summer carnival In Ihe middle
of this month. It is the genius of u
cily  io have a  local celebration    of
some soil, and however much citizens
may appreciate a trip away from home
to Join iu the festivities of some other
place, the spirit of loyally requires that
some official recognition be given   to
passing events by local attention.
Itossland has wisely covered the ground
by its proposal to bold a union affair,
aad ihe program arranged for lhe dales
advertised is one which will sustain
and probably add to Kossland's reputation for sport iveness.
Ii is pleasing to note the lone of confidence which prevails In the mining
circles of thfct city, and to learn thai
the business Interests of the largest
mining camp in Hritish Columbia aro
steadily prospering, it is equally gratifying to know that what was once the
centre of disputes and conflicts between managers and men, ami even between the workers themselves, Is now
a place of practical harmony. The citizens are acquiring their own properties
and the town is taking on the nature of
a   more settled and permanent     pla
rather than of a frontier and    plone
town, as such  places must always
for a time at the start.
The citizens of Nelson will rejoice
the prosperity of our nearest lar
neighbor. While there is little In CO

bla towns, and ihey will vie with ea

aud experience teaches more readily
than theory how such success can be

around Nelson as an agricultural and
horticultural paradise, there should bo
fascinating work for the Agricultural

ihat judicious advertising in the North-
west and in the East will bring to this
section a large number of people this
fall who will have been attracted by
the reports of Uio rich fruit lands thai
surround this vicinity. Every effort
should be made in secure suitable < x-
curslon rates from the C. P, It. and (.!,
N, K. from points as far easl as Montreal and as far south as Si. Louis. A
judiciously advertised railway excursion is iu Itself suggestive, and when
there is added to it ihe feature oi a
unique exhibit, it will be still more attractive io strangers. We believe the
directors of the society are already negotiating for satisfactory rates, and
have no doubt that this year will rival

Maxwell    Smith.    Dominion    Inspector,
Poises Work of  Provincial
The quarterly meeting of the British
Columbia Fruit firowera' Assuciatlun,
held in Nelson yesteniuy, was divided
Into twu parlH. In the afternoon a demonstration of pruniiiK nnd caring for
fruit trees was given In the orchard of
J. A. Keller, Falrview, by T. A. Bry-
In tin.' evening a meeting was held
in the hoard of trade rooms, at which
Uiree short practical and helplu] addresses were given hy the visiting experts on subjects nf primary Importance
lo Iruit growers, especially to beginners.
Maxwell Smilh, Dominion fruit inspector, took occasion io praise very
warmly the work done by the British
Columbia govemmeui in euc-ourjMjfing
the industry and assisting so liberally
in advertising il abroad.
The meeting was called about. 8:110,
wllh tlie president, James Johnstone,
in the chair and about 30 members
II. H. ('roasdaile rose and asked that
a general meeting oi' the Kootenay association* be held al an early date to
consider matters Of Urgent importance.
He offered to prepare a requisition if
iu cessary.
The president explained that it wns
huni lo get a meeting at this season
unless lor a spci ial purpose.
Mr. Croasdalle stated that the question, of labor was a vital one. Many
ranchers refused to plant strawberries
on account of the uncertainty of labor,
lie promised to put in a luquesfto the
Mr. Johnstone then inlroduced T. A.
Brydon. president of the provincial association, remarking that the attendance was remarkably good considering
that the farmers were now in the middle of theh- busiest season.
Mr. Brydon spoke hrielly of the objects ami privileges of the provincial
association, staling its chief aim to be
assistance to beginners. He then proceeded to speak of planting, and especially of preparation for planting. lie
advocated thorough cultivation of soil,
oi failing that, cultivation of strips for
rows of trees. He advised fall planting
If all conditions of soil and moisture
were good; otherwise spring planting
was safer. He recommended ileal ing
with tlie nearest nurseries and constam
reference to ihe experience of successful neighbors.
Young nursery stock, he said, should
be very carefully handled, and the roots
well protected from frost and from
bruising, Care, however, need not Imply slowness. The roots should be
cleaned; holes for planting should be
about four feet in diameter aud la
Inches deep, with good soil above,
(irmly pressed down.
Prevailing winds should be studied,
and the trees leaning to windward,
with the longest branches on that side.
Cuts in pruning should he on the side
away from the sun. One-year-old trees
were, he thought, the best.
In reply to questions of H. E, Croasdalle, Mr. Brydon advised planting
cherry trees in the fall. He declined
to offer any advice about peaches.
Keferring to the question of pruning
and the afternoon's work, he said:
"You ate not pruning halt enough. You
are spoiling your trees. They are grow-
ing far out, with long, thin branches
lhat cannot carry fruit. Planting year-
old trees, you should be masters of the
situation. Cut them down and carefully select the branches you will let grow.
Your branches do not taper: they are
too straight, and therefore weak. Keep
your trees low. Do most of jour work
from the ground; attend to convenience, to the health of the trees, and
to light and air. Keep the pyramidal
form of the tree. Don't waste the
strength of your tree on unnecessary
branches.    Prune thoroughly in June.
"Your iruit has made a record In tho
world's market, and the responsibility
of maintaining it lies wiih yen. You
can grow  the  linest  fruit."
A Question of Mr. Johnstone's was
answered by advice not to pinch off all
branches, hut to wait for winter pruning when possible.
Mr. Brydon also warned ngafnsl overburdening. He said: "Some of you
are growing four apples where you
should have one. Thai cannot last.
It will exhaust the tree. You will gain
in Ihe long run by reducing lhe output
J. C. Metcalfe spoke on Hie cultivation of small frulls. IB- though! Nelson's OUtpUl remarkable for the short
lime the ranches had been in. hearing.
He strongly advised the cultivation of
rhubarb as an easy and very profitable
crop, easily handled and always In demand. Rich soil Is the only requirement.
On the subject of strawberries ho
said: "Work your soil well. Get a flno
surface and keep il" He discussed
the various methods of planting, recommending the hedgerow system or
Ihe hill system. The distance between
plants should vary Irom 16 t��> 88 inches,
according lo variety,
He advised careful choice of Shipping
berries for outside markets, the Albany
being generally suitable.
Ho advised mulching with hay or
straw at the first sign of frost. Fern
would do. he replied to Mr. CroaBdalle,
If il did nol dry up, but was useless for
enriching tho soil.
He urged careful supervision of tho
picking and an ample supply of labor
In Ihe Held.
New plants should be taken from a
special propagation bed. Plants tiro
exhausted by one crop, and should not
In- kept In bearing1 therealler, ns the
fruit deteriorates and the soil Is Impoverished.
Raspberry  cultivation, Mr.  Metcalfe
described as very easy and profitable,
especially the Culhbert. He recommended 3 1-2 feet between hills and C
feet between rows. He advised removal of canes each fall.
The only cure he knew for berry
pests was cutting out and burning.
Many of Mr. Metcalfe's statements were
in reply to questions by John Hyslop.
A new berry, the Logan, was next
dealt with, a cross between the raspberry and cane blackberry. It Is, Mr
Metcalfe said, a popular and profitable
berry, but not a good shipper. The
Burbank, a cross between the laspher
ry and evergreen blackberry, is smaller, but a better shipper. Cane blackberries, Snyders, Laughtons, Eries and
Taylors were also recommended, though
I.aughtons arc subject to pests. Evergreen blackberries are the most productive of all, and rows should be planted
about 30 feet apart.
Currants, gooseberries and black-
hemes were dealt with briefly, the bush
form being recommended.
In conclusion Mr. Metcalfe slrongly
advised adherence to a few good varieties for the sake of the markets. To
Mr. Croasdaile he said that the Northwest would never raise fruit in a commercial way.
Maxwell Smith, who was Introduced
as "our old and valued friend," was
heartily cheered as he rose. He Indulged for a few minutes in reminiscent gratululion at the realization of
his predictions as to Kootenay fruit
growing, which were laughed at everywhere as late as fours years ago. He
was still surprised at the rapidity of
the development and the great, spread
of the "fruit-growing fever."    He said:
"The greater the supply the greater
the demand and the better prices." Ho
thought that the prairie provinces
would always he the chief, and a perfectly satisfactory, market tor British
Columbia fruit, which has already displaced there the product of all other
In reply to James Johnstone's reminder that London merchants wanted to
tr.ke more than Kootenay could ship,
Mr. Smith said: "I'm glad to hear it.
Those exhibits in London are the best
possible advertisement. The provincial government is entitled to the greatest credit for il."
Continuing, he told of his own efforts
to persuade the prairie province people
ihat British Columbia fruit was equal
to that of Ontario. It was a shipment
by T. Sterling, of Kelowna, to England
that first convinced them of ihe fact.
On orchard cultivation Mr. Smith advised thorough clearing away of rocks
und stumps and deep cultivation to
form a receptacle for moisture. He
strongly recommended ploughing tho
sub-soiland pulverizing the soil as per-
iectly as possible to preserve soil moisture, which increases in proportion as
the solid panicles of sand or loam aro
broken up,
In reply to Mr. Croasdaile Mr. Smith
said that irrigation certainly affected
flavor, but not necessarily unfavorably. He added: "I am not yet conduced that even your favored district
will not yet need irrigation. There,
are enterprising real estate agents in
Okanagan valley who are taking in
suckers every day hy telling them irrigation Is not needed on slopes where
water can hardly be goi."
He advised cutting of cherry trees to
check the growth ol sap, and so promote bearing. No crop of any kind
should come under the branches of
Digressing, Mr. Smith warned his
hearers that next year every party to
the use of llle 'al fruit boxes would be
Mi. Smith concluded with an appeal
for 0O-operation and kindly wishes for
the success of all.
On motion of Messrs. Croasdaile and
Hyslop, a vote of thanks was passed to
the three speakers, to which Mr. Brydon leplled.
There's a world or difference between
wishing nnd  willing.
