Board of Trade.
The regular meeting of the board of
the board of trade will be held Thursday evening. The report of the delegates to the Associated Hoards of Trade
will be received and dlBcusseil. The
Game Society will present several resolutions for tbe endorsation of the
Fruit    Fair    Directors    to    Discourage
Growing of Apples Unsuitable
for Shipment.
The directors of the Nelson Agricultural and Industrial Association have
got fairly down to work for the year. At
last night's meeting the prize lists were
revised, and, with lew excepliou, given
their final form for 11)07.
Two matters of considerable Importance were discussed. The district
competition for the Johnstone cup will
hereafter Include iruit ouly. It was
agreed that Kaslo, Creston and Grand
Forks were handicapped lu vegetable
competition by the greater distance
their exhibits had to be brougbt. The
question ol reorganizing the districts
was discussed. The Nelson ulstrict,
from Procter lo Slocau river, has been
divided In,is three, although its total
acreuge ls fur less than that of aay
otber district. The ouly change determined upou for the present is lhe uuiun
of the two on the Soulb Shore formerly

In the frull department a new step
was taken, aiming to encourage the
growing of those vurieties of apples recommended by expert authurilies, aud
graduully to discourage production of
everything not recommended.
The meellng wus culled to order ut

W. S. Pearce}- reported for the potil
try commitlee, recommending no
change in tbe prize list. The report
was udopted.
The fruit committee reported many
changes, generally recommending reduc
tlons on upples that have been adjudged
unsuitable for shipping, so as lo gradually discourage them, aud raising the
prizes for the approved vurieties. Tbe
net result on apples was a reduction of
about tin in prizes. In other fruits
chunges were trilling. The report was
The question was reopened to con-
slder the extra prizes, esiieclally the Dominion Express Company's trophy for
quality nud packing, but no changes
were made.
U. A. Hunter, for thc bread nnd preserves committee, recommended that
the number of prizes for bread be reduced aud their value Increased. He
alBD recommended a few changes In the
classillculion of preserves. His report
was adopted.
Tho committee on manufacturers
asked for no changes.
II. Selnus, for Ihe floral department,
suggested u return to the lint display,
unlimited number of blooms, and uo restriction on the taste of the exhibitor!
He also recommended the elimination
of some varieties lhat aro oul of season
a**, fair time, or unsuitable for display.
He asked, too, that collections of wild
flowers be separated from tho floral department,    Tho reporl was adopted.
Tho painting committee will -report
late. The fine aria committee recommended n number of changes, which
wero adoptod, chiefly In the direction of
eliminating; purely mechanical work,
and old exhibits.
In connection with the district competitions, Mr. Hyslop recommended Hint

South Shore districts bo combined, The
report was adopled.
The mime wns then changed, on motion of .1. 10. Annable. from Nelson Fall

Outlook of Similkameen's
New Town
W. C. McLean Discourses on the
City He Is Going to Build-Resources of District.
W. 0. McLean now has plans of the
town of Ashnola and will proceed to
put a portion of it ou the market lu

McLean is enthusiastic over his new
The Bite of Ashnola is on the north
bank of the Simiikameen river, about
20 miles south of Princeton. It lies in
a natural basin surrounded by hills rich
lu minerals. The townsite is almost
perfectly level.
Eastward, across the river, half a
mile from the lown nre the lands of
the Ashnola Cs.nl Company, almost adjoining them ure the deposits of the
Vermilion Forks Coal Co. To the north,
distant Ihree and a half miles, the Simiikameen Valley Coal Co. is about to
begin operations, while to the west of
lhe town a Tacoma syndicate has extensive coal uraes.
Southward are Kennedy and Copper
mountains with upwards of 300 crown-
granted mineral claims, many of them
of proved value. All can ship their
products right Inlo Ashnola by aerial

ranches, Including oue owned by Mr.
Ali these resources have been known
for some time. They cannot be developed until transportation facilities are
lt is the conviction thut lines of
transportation will go through Ashnola
within a year tbat has decided Mr. McLean to begin building, and laying oul
his new town. The Great Northern
Railway Company has acquired all the
land adjoining the townsite on three
sides, and Is believed to have already
determined Its route westward to the
Hope mountains. Of this Mr. McLean
says: "I don't believe Jim Hill Is buying lands for croquet lawns or tennis
courts. He has seeu that Ashnola Is
the only site for a smelter town and
distributing point In the whole Simiikameen vnlley."
Mr. McLean's ideas are generous. He
will reserve a block for u public school,
and another for a church, though he
professes absolute impartially ns to the
denomination of the second, anything
from a Buddhist temple to tt Salvation
Army citadel will be welcome.
"I haven't," said Mr. McLean, "asked
anyone's advice or help. I went In
there, saw everything for myself, and
stayed, and spent my own money clear-
Ing nnd opening ll up. I don't now ask
any one to buy lots, and I'm not going
to make any promises. I believe Ashnola will be a town, and a good oue,
and all my money is going Into it."

Parliament  and  Country Indignant at
Dismissal of Lord Aylmer
From Command.
Ottawa, April 10.���No action of the
government for yeara has created such
IntenBe indignation as the enforced re
tlrement of Lord Aylmer from his po
sitlon of inspector general of militia.
Liberal members seem to feel as keenly
over lt as do the Conservatives. It is
certain that had the fact been known
before Sir Frederick Borden got his estimates through be would still be rest
Ing with them Instead of now being ln
his cosy state room on the Empress of
Britain ploughing her way to the Motherland.
One prominent member on the Lib
eral side wired to the minister yester
day while en route to SL Johns to ask
if the report of Lord Aylmer's compulsory retirement from public service
were true, and if so for what reason.
The reply wns was: "Yes; because
he has reached the age limit."
If this excuse of the government be
a legitimate one, tbe question ls naturally asked, how the appointment of Col.
Vldal as Inspector general to be Justified: True, Lord Aylmer Ib a little over
a year older than Col. Vldal. The late
Inspector general was born on March
28. 1842, while the dato of birth of Coi.
Vldal is given as May 16, 1843. Ellml
nnilng Imperial service, Col. Vldal is
the senior of Lord Aylmer In Ihe Can-
adlun militia, his first appointment dating (rom August 2C, 1870, while Lord
Aylmer's Canadian commission after he
resigned from the Imperial service was
dated Dec. 31,1871, and yet, notwithstanding these facts, as revealed by tho
inilitln list, Lord Aylmer. in the best of
health und manly vigor is forcibly side
tracked for an officer who for over two
mouths has been on sick-leave.
Neleon Market.
As Is usual at this time of the year
all stap'e lines, such oa meat, butter,
eggs, vogetables and canned goods, are
at the highest point. During the next
month or six weeks these commodities
will como down to normal prices, with
tho exception possibly of canned goods.
But there will be less of the latter
used as there will soon be any quantity
of fresh small fruits on the market. It
Ib sometimes complained that Nelson Is
a very dear city In whicli to live, but a
comparison of the prices ln Ontario
and British Columbia, will show that
there Is scarcely any difference when
allowance Is made for freight. This Is
particularly tho case as regards butter and vegetables.
Dominion Ministers Ask
No More
Fielding;, for Cabinet, Conciliatory
in Tone���Intercolonial Surplus
Proves a Myth.
Ottawa, April 10.���While the government at some distance from the-capital
is violently demanding that Mr. Fowler
should make good his "women, wine
and graft" suggestion, while some party
organs go so far as to say that the
member for King's Bhould be removed
from the House if he does not prefer
definite charges, the prime minister is
far from making such demand. Sir
Wilfrid, as leader of tbe Commons, haa
a splendid opportunity to cell upon Mr.
Fowler to go forward or to retract. In
fact the premier has only to endorse
the Bourassa resolution, which practically was an order to Mr. Fowler to pro-
cure evidence. But this is exactly what
the premier would not himself do. or
permit the House to do. He not only
gave Mr. Fowler no order to proceed
but no advice or encouragement in that
direction. There was not a single word
of suggestion tbat Mr. Fowler had gone
too for and should either retract or proceed. Nod did any other minister issue
a challenge or Invitation in any form
or say or suggest anything ln the wa;
of censure for Mr. Fowler's recent sil-
ence. Mr. Fielding was the only minister besides the premier who spoke,
and he waa studiously conciliatory. The
fact ls that Mr. Fowler la regarded aa a
person who would respond cheerfully
and promptly to a request of the House
to proceed, and this request tbe premier
can obtain by asking for It. Consequent
ly there is no occasion for hysterical de-.
mand by the organs of tbe miuisters
throughout the Dominion. It is only
necessary for the ministers themselves
to make these demands from their
placea in parliament.
While these sensational events have
absorbed most ot the interest during
the week, other business went on. The
public accounts committee continued
tbe Ross rifle investigation and examined a melancholy list of adverse re
ports from all parts of the country on
this weapon. Some of the officers who
forwarded these reports have been examined. The witnesses Included a ser-
geant major of the mounted police who
had been seriously injured by a Ross
rifle accident. The remarkable fact
came out in the evidence tbat the
mounted are now without riflea.
The Ross rifle served out to them bass
been declared unsuitable and the whole
supply was returned to Ottawa. This
happened a year or two ago and the
force has not been supplied either with
improved Ross rifles or any other
It was shown that a St. John corps
failed to perform ita annunl shooting
practice because the men considered
the rifle dangerous and officers did not
care, under the circumstances, to take
tbe responsibility of ordering them out.
The committee has followed up the
sub-target contract fnr enough to discover that nine promotors of the com
pany who paid Mr. Jewell $.11111,1)110 In
stock and some money for his patent
rights received back* as a gift $25,000
each In the same stock. Among these
directors, each of whom paid In $500
only, was H. H. Wlckwlre, then the
member for Nova Scotia legislature for
Sir Frederick Borden's county of King's
and one of the ministers chlet campaign
The Inst day'B evidence rcoes to show
that Mr. Jewell sent Mr. Wlckwlre a re
mlttance of $9,000 out of which a dls
pute arose between nomo of the dlrec
tore and Mr. Jewell. It may be pertinent
t-i observe that Ihis occurred iate In
October, 1904, a week or(two before the
general elections.
The ministers of railways has mnde
a long and deeply Involved statement of
last year's Intercolonial finance. He
claims a surphiB of $02,000 which is
about half the profits claimed by bis
predecessor before Mr. Emmerson took
offlce this year. The government has
spent some $12,000,000 during the three
years above what the rond has earned
and last year the total expenditure on
the Intercolonial wns $11,300,000. while
the earnings were $7,000,000. Mr. Em
mersoti cnlls expenditure for new rails,
new englneB, and everything else thnl
Is new, capital outlay nnd cuts It oul of
his ordinary expense charges. But ns
the new rails replaced old stock and
as the new cars and engines are required to replace condemned plant, II
will be seen that this expenditure must
go on and that there Is a real deficit
running Into the millions. Mr. Emmerson haB explained that he la charging
to capital the whole cost of the buildings destroyed by the Moncton flre.
This, what was really a lose to tbo
Intercolonial appears in Mr. Emmer-
son's current account as a blessing
since he does not charge a cent to the
expenditure of the year and even escapes the coBt of repairs.

Rich    Area'!    Resources    Unknown-
Sheepmen Not Anxious to Attract
More Settlers.
Nowhere in the Kootenays Is there
more pleasing scenery, nor a more
promising farming or fruit-raising district than the Pend d'Oreille valley, and
yet probably few In Nelson are aware
of IL Surveyors and others were last
summer astonished that ao fine a bit
of country should be so little known on
the outside. But this is easily ac
counted for by tbe farmers having beeu
all against advertising, tearing new set
lelrs would overreach on the grazing
The district is rendered accessible by
a good wagon road which, leaving the
railroad at Waneta, runs up the river
for about 15 miles. So far the farmers
have given their attention chiefly to
beef, butter and milk production, but
the success of small orchards Is drawing attention to fruit raising on a larger
scale and many are planting apple trees.
The climate Ib ideal for the orchard
and further, aB in other farming dls
trlcts of the Kootenays, tomatoes, mel-
Ions, corn, etc., ripen readily in the
open air. One great advantage la that
can have grazing enough for aome cat-
tie and so supply the orchard with the
cheapest and best fertilizer. The towns
of Trail, Salmo and Ymir are all close
and there ready markets are found at
good prices for beef, pork, butter, ap
pies .small fruits and any eatable. The
most desirable land Ib of course taken
up, but several small farms and a good
deal of the mineral land is for aale at
prices below those obtaining ln more
widely advertised districts.
The waters of the Pend d'Oreille are
much warmer than those of the Kootenay and Columbia rivera, and this, combined wltb a sounthern exposure and
sheltering hills to east and west, give
the valley, In ordinary years, an exceedingly mild winter with little depth
of snow. Visitors in April will find the
bright green of the bunch grass and
snowy whiteness of thc berry bushes a
delightful contrast to the sombre hues
of pine, fir and lichen covered rock so
nn)suit ainously insistent In many parts
of British Columbia.
. ii* J. P. Harper Dead.
Word has been received at Rossland
of the death of J. P. Harper at Tucson,
Arizona. Mr. Harper was well known
In Nelson, especially in curling circles.
He left Rossland six weeks ago for Tucson, hoping that a stay in that mild
climnte would cure him of consumed
lion, from which he bud been a sufferer, bnt tho disease had gained too much
headway, and he succumbed after a
short slay there. A letter was received
from him a few days ago in which he
ulated tbat there were a large number
of consumptives thero seeking health.
The night before he wrote ono of tho
victims of tuberculocls had succumbed lo It. The rest of the letter
was written ln a cheerful vein, and
none ot his friends who read lt believed
that he would receive his summons bo
soon, although they all realized that
his demise was but a question of a moderately Bhort period.
Prosperous Ymir.
A. II. Buckworth, of Ymir, li ln the
city. Business, he says, is Improving in
that town. The mining Industry waa
never more satisfactory and an encouraging feature for tho future la the fact
that many of the residents ln the surrounding districts are cleaning up their
lands and planting fruit trees. There
is a vast tract of good agricultural land
ln the neighborhood of Ymir which will
non be under cultivation.
Opposition Force Delay
Government Adheres to Unhrerdl-f
Endowment���Price Ellison
on Irrigation.
(Special to The Daily Canadian.)
Victoria, April 10���Continuance of
the debate on the budget speech and resumption of the discussion of the university WU, which propses to make a
reservation of 2,000,00 acrea ef land aa
endowment for such an Inatltutlon In
British Columbia, occupied the attention of the provincial legislature at yeaterday afternoon'! sitting.
Perhape the most Interesting address
of the afternoon waa that delivered by
Price Ellison ln reference particularly
to the proposal of the government to
take aome action towards the Irrigation of the immense area included In
the dry belt By exhibiting aome specimen!, casually chosen of fruit which ls
grown on portions of that tract which
have been subjected to the treatment
mention, he conclualrely proved the
worthineei of object which the government haa ln view, aad the return! la
added wealth to the agricultural resources of British Columbia, which
might be expected to accrue therefrom.
Consideration of the Bhivernlty bin
wwaa marked br a somewhat heated
debate between the leader of the oppo-
alon, Premier Me Bride, and other sup-
portera of the opposition and of the
government The result waa that the
passage of the measure throagh oom-
mittee waa prevented, and tha debate
will doubtless he resumed at the next
A Would-Be Detective.
Early thla forenoon the attention of
the police waa drawn to the siisplcious
conduct of a man who waa walking
backward aad forward along Baker
street The Individual had a strange appearance, and the chief of police waa
convinced that all waa not right, ao he
called the stranger to one aide and proceeded to interrogate him aa to hia
movements. Just then the officer noticed that the beard worn by the man
waB falae. Thla In itself waa a moat
suspicious circumstance, ao the chief began to see villous of big rewarda for
the apprehension of aome noted fugitive from Justice. Therefore he hung

Suggestions as to Matter for Examination and Method* of Testing Knowledge.
The subject of examination for mining ceiUHcatea In one of great interest
in eevry country of which mineral
wealth is one of the chief assets.
Every examination of this kind should
and usually does consist of two
distinct parts, the oral and the written.
The former examination allows a -person who has been deprived of educational advantages to show his knoiv-
ledge of the distinctly practical problems connected with mining, and still
better, lt permits the examiners to take
account of the personality of the person
being examined. Every one will admit
that a mental test alone docs not furnish a criterion of a person's ability to
occupy any given position, and particu
larly is this bo for such a position as
that of a mine official who must fre
yuently depend. largely upon previous
experience and common sense.
The written examination is Intended
to draw out the applicant's familiarity
with certain rules and formulas which
he must constantly use in his work, and
which are the fundamentals of the theoretical part of the subject. It is an
essential and very useful part of an
educational test, but it should not, as is
sometimes the case, call for merely a
display of mental gymnastics which any
bright school boy can carry out much
better than an experienced man who
has become rusty in the use of such
gymnastics. Is it fair to expect an ap
plicant to remember all ol the formulas
which he may be expected to use In
connection with Iiis work? He should,
however, be required to show that he
knows how to use these formulas. The
applicants for examinations should
have access to books containing slniplj
the formulas but without any explana
tion accompanying them, or he should
be furnished with sheets containing formulas and other data which he may be
required to use. It is not necessary to
give only those formulas that will be
required in Uie particular examination,
but a general list of formulas may be
given, and the applicant must then
choose the proper one, or lt the problem
lequires for Its solution a formula derived from certain, fundamental formulas, give only those fundamental formulas, and then if the applicant cannot
trom them derive the necessary formulas he evidently does nut understand
sufficiently the use of these formulas, lt
some of the questions given candidates
for mine Inspectorships and mine fore-
uianships were given to engineers in
actual practice, and even to many members of the examining boards, 1 believe
that a very large percentage of them
could not answer the questions without
tlrst referring to a standard reference
book. It it is necessary to give any
mental gymnastics in the examinations,
and I very much doubt it, the number
ot such questions should be small and
the credit allowed them only such that
au applicant can pass the practical ex-
amination even though he fail upon the
mathematical and purely theoretical
portions.���From article by H. H. Stoek
In Mines and Minerals for April.
Growth of Art and Refinement Responsible for the Change..
ln his address to the Semi-ready
stores, the president ot the Semi-ready
Company several months ago premised
the prevailing modes for the summer of
11107.   Amongst other things he Bald:
"Anything like a vogue of bright color
Is not to be expected thiB season, the
gray tones still being proper. The attempt to introduce the various greeu
shades haB been a failure. The growth
uf art and retinetnent umong the people
Is one cauae for the more conservative
style ln dress. In earlier years, a few
loading tailors could stamiiede the people from one style to another, knowing
that diiiBlic changes made tor unwonted
activity In business. But today, the
styles chango gradually, and tho color
and patterns can nevor become garish
and loud." Tho chlof of tho Semi-rcsady
Cumpany hns a contlnlental reputation
