an Idea that ono of tho puriwaes of tho

Boise, June 11��� It Is now admitted
that the trial will gain greatly in Inler-
eBt from day to day. According to General Hawley, Orchard's testimony will be
tho most Interesting feature of Ihe trial.
Other witnesses will be called to corroborate Orchard, und these will from
time to time tell of olher crimes. The
city Ib crowded wllh witnesses and more
are on the way. One of the most sensational witnesses will be the Pinker-
ton detective, who for several years was
a member or (he Western Federation of
Miners, and In fact, for some time was
president of a subordinate union. He
appears to hare been In the confidence
of some of the head meu of the Boclety
and during the time he was receiving
their confidences he was reporting regularly to the head of his agency. The
prosecution claims that this man will
almost completely corroborate Orchard,
and In addition Implicate many others
In the plots. There will bo witnesses
who will Identify thc Peabody bomb.
Others will tell of Orchard's moremcntB,
uf his meetings with Pettlbone, and
four will prore that Adums got money
from Haywood when he was In trouble
in Ogden. Adams himself will be put
on the stand, and he will have to work
out his own salvation. His confession
cannot tic UBcd agalust him hut lf he
refuses to stand by it he will only place
himself In a very bail box. Mrs. Adams' constant association with Mrs.
Mssycr Is the subject of much comment.
Harry Orchard has written a book
whicli he claims is the only true account
of his life. Il has been suggested that
Detective McParland has exercised a
censorship orer Orchard's literary venture, but this Ib denied by the author.
He states that In part It Is a resume of
the events of his career as related on
Ihe witness stand. The initial chapters
contain an account of his early life on
Ihe farm In Canada.
Fiftt Cunts a Month
Oiscusssa Abnormal  Weather But Can
Give No Explanation���Gulf Stream
le Innocent.
Now York, June 11.���When one day
after another is described by the
Weather Bureau as belug the coldest
or wettest on record, it must be remembered that the bureau's recordB do
not run buck more than about thirty
years; and therein lies the weak point
of meteorology, Bald Files B. Dunn,
formerly forecaster at New York station, when asked what had been thu
matter with June and May.
"There have been an unusual number
of storms wblch have gone off tho coast
south of New York," he replied. "That
has kept pulling the cold weather down
from the north to New York and Its
neighborhood. Ordinarily these storms
are fewer ln number and at this time of
the year pass north of New York on
tbelr wsy to the ocean. When they are
north ot us, they pull tho warm weather
up from the soutb. But that ls about
as far as explanation can go. The
science ot meteorology has not advanced since 1869. ,
Albert J. Myer, an officer of the United Slates Army, devised his method of
tracing atorm courses on charts. He
was the original "Old Probabilities."
The government adopted his chart It
is still In use, and practically nothing
has been added to It as working material for intelligently and accurately
forecasting the weather.
He attacked a widespread delusion
with thc statement that tlie Gulf Stream
has no effect whatevor ou the climate
of this couutry.
"The Gulf Stream," he said, "warms
tlie llrltlsh lBles, but lt might he abolished ultogethor and tho United States
would never know tho difference, so
far ns temperature Is concerned. The
prevailing winds here are off shore, so
whatever warmth ls given off by thc
watera of the Gulf Stream Is curried
eastward and wnsled on the Atlantic."

unseasonable weather, but admitted thai
he could not namo ihem.

Northwest Exchange Meet
in Winnipeg
Sarcastic Reference to Recent Trial
at Winnipeg���'Government
Urged to Assist.
Winnipeg, June 11.���The big conference of grain meu that has been In session foi the paat two days at the legislative cliaiuber dissolved last night after
a most interesting series of meetings,
during whlcsi lhe whole situation regarding the grain ttade was thoroughly reviewed from the farmers' standpoint,
and this waB supplemented hy tbe pre-
s.eniiititui of the aiiltude uf the railroads
toward the grain trade, this part of the
matter Le.ng dealt with by representatives of the Q tf. il. and C. N. H| corporations, who appeared as delegates to
ihe conference and who stayed in to
tbe close and were most cordially
thanked ior doing so In marked contrast
to the ilia ii exchange delegation, which
withdrew alter sitting half a day in the
conference and thus eurned Lor them-
sesres tne hearty execration of the
farmers, a due which was fully accorded the exchauge men upou every possible occasion, the sentiment of the conference on thss point being clearly demonstrated when a delegate wished to
hold oul Ihe olive branch of invitation
tu return und this was met with instant
and Bhatp disapproval by the conference.
Another Incident which occurred in
tbls connection was lhat of Mr. Seal-
.ion's speech iu which he referred in
caustic terms to the recent trial of the
giain c.ise which tlie speaker referred
to as sotuelhlug not worthy of the consideration usually accorded such exercise of judicial functions and as a
phase of a case not at all finished in its
appearance before tbe courts of
This open rupture of long strained relations between the farmers and the
grain exchange was the only sensational teature ot the conference, which was
otherwise a good-tempered and analytical body which, however, Bat all too
short a time for the thorough threshing
out of the many and important questions that were placed before it.
Declaring strongly for government
ownership of public utilities such as
elevators, railroads, and as one speaker
put It, of all public utilities that are likely to become monopolies, the conference laid down Its attitude toward the
management of tbe grain trade ln clear,
forceful terms and Indicated Its disposition to stay with the job of getting all,
or some, ot the things aimed at, by appointing a standing legislative committee to look after all proposed legislation pertaining to, or affecting, the traffic in grain.
There was some doubt as to the unanimity of the delegates upon the various matters to be placed under consideration, during the early hours of
the conference, hut tbls doubt vanished with the withdrawal of the grain
exchange men after which tbe conference was u practical unit in action,
this solidlRcntlon having been brought
about, apparently, by the general feeling of resentment toward the retiring
representation of the grain exchange
which drew delegates who would otherwise hare been disposes! to dlride
somewhat upon some ot tho matters
presented, more closely together and
produced a unity of sentiment and nelion which might, but for tho wlth-
drnwal of tho grain exchange, huve been
porceptlbly different.
Tho conference was more or less of
a revelation to those who huve been
accustomed to think that the Iutorest
felt by the farmers In the management
of tho grain trade was rather a matter
of homo grumblings than ono In which
the average agriculturist huu an Interest
of thc sort that would prompt snch
speedy and decided dcclartalon of rights
nnd determination to havo them as
marked the proceedings of the conference. It was made thoroughly clear
to all who took the trouble to attend
the conference that, not only has the
Manitoba farmer thought long and deeply upon these matters, which are of
such vital Importance to him, but that
the subject has been so thoroughly
pressed homo to him by the accidents,
Inabilities and Incompetencies of those
upon whom ho depends for tho carrying
out of tbo duties of selling, transporting
nnd storing his grains, that the farmer
has made up Ills mind to secure a changed, and Improved condltiMi of affairs by
Ihe easiest and most ngntable methodB
possible, hut to have bucIi a change at
any price of effort und application that
may be required.
To the end of remedying admitted
defects In transportation  facilities the
railroads of tho country met the farmers ln the very best spirit of conciliation, fairness and helpfulness and lt
cunnot too often be remarked that this
Bplrlt waa one of the most pleasant
ft alines of the conference and one out
of which one of the greatest goods to
result from the labors of the conference
Ib likely to result.
When the Grain conference was resumed, Q. H. Shaw of the C. N. It..
moved a resolution, which D. E. Stewart seconded, that the minister of trade
and commerce be requested to arrange
for the publication by and under the
authority of the Grain Warehouse Commission, of a weekly bulletin or market
report showing the market prices of
grain and farm produce in the markets
of Liverpool, London, Paris, Hamburg,
New York, Chicago, Minneapolis, Duluth
Port Arthur, Fort William, and Winnipeg, said market report to show the
prioes as reported by the publications
received from abroad for one week, and
Immediately preceding the date of said
publication, as near as practicable, and
from the home markets tbe prices as
reported the day previous to the publication of the bulletin; also the established freight rates on grain aud farm
products from grain shipping stations
In Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta
to Lake Superior ports, viz., Fort William, Port Arthur and Duluth, and all
tali to North Atlantic seaboard, with
the charter rates on bulk grain from
Lake Superior ports, viz., Port Arthur,
Fort William and Duluth to Georgian
Bay, Lakes Huron, Erie, Ontario and
Hlver St. Lawrence ports during the
season of Upper Lake navigation, and
approximate cost of ocean carriage from
all North Atlantic ports Including the
river St. Lawrence to British and European continental ports.
Said bulletin to also contain lhe tariff and conditions of grain storage in
the Interior and the terminal elevators
and such other matters relating to the
marketing and transportation of grain
and farm produce as In the judgment
of the commission should be published
for the information of the public.

the -commissioner of public inspection,
and to be furnished by mall to all persons wbo shall order the same and pay
the price of 11.00 per annum.
The commissioner shall also keep on
Die for public Inspection, publications

The resolution was adopted, after a
delegate bad been assured that the bulletin wonld be printed In Winnipeg.
Moved by Mr. Millar, of Bolsevaln, and
seconded by lieeve Coulthard, of Riverside:
"Resolved: That this conference for
the reasons advanced in the clause on
government ownership of storage facilities in the circular Issued by the Manitoba Grain Growers' association and appended hereto, that this conference urgently request the provincial government to acquire and operate a complete
system of storage elevators throughout
the province along the lines suggested
In the clause referring to above and
that tbe provincial government request
such modifications of the grain and Inspection acts and such co-operation of
the Dominion government as will make
the system capable of yielding the most
benefit possible to tbe producer."
Mr. Millar urged the necessity of
the government taking over the elevators as a more satisfactory manner of
doing business than  the present one.

Superintendent Brown of the Canadian Northern came down from Winni-
peg in connection with the strike of
dockmen here, and was in conference
with the men this afternoon. The dock-
men last night met and formed a union
to be known as the Head of the Lako
International Association of Freight
Handlers. They said today that If the
demands are not promptly met In Fort
William, ihe shedmen would go out in
sympathy. This action Is being deemed
necessary, as boats not being unloaded
here are going to Fort William to be
discharged Its cargo.
Superintendent Brown has suggested
to the freight handlers as a way out of
the difficulty of short employment, that
the scule of wages remain at 33 1-3 cents
per hour, and when there is no work on
the dock, employment will be found In
the yards for all who wish to work.
Probably 300 men will receive the-report
of the commltteo which conferred with
Superintendent Brown.

Attitude of Some of the
Will Be Supported by at Least Japan
Spain and "Portugal, Austria
and Italy Reserved.
Vienna, June 11.���The attitude of
Austria-Hungary at the coming conference will be substantially similar to
that of Germany, her ally In the Triple
Alliance, on the proposal of limiting
armaments. It is learned from authora-
tive sources tbat, following the example
of Germany and Russia, there would be
no participation whatever by Austria-
Hungary In any discussion of the subject. She will remain silent and reserve complete freedom of action with
reference to what may be done.
According to opinion held In governmental circles bere, the action of Italy,
which was at one time in doubt, is not
likely to be different from that of her
allies ln the Triple Alliance.
Concerning the arbitration, Austria-
Hungary will oppose compulsory arbitration on the ground tbat It involves
an Infringement of national sovereign,
Ity; a formula of arbitration, similar to
that adopted in 1899 will not meet with
any opposition from Austria-Hungary
even though it is not the same technically, but any material divergence from
the previous formula of arbitration will
be opposed. With reference to the regulation of maritime law on the basis of
the experience gained during the Russo-
Japanese war, Austria-Hungary malte
tains a distinctly favorable attitude and
stands ready to co-operate with other
nations. All efforts towards the humanising of the conduct of war are sure to
derive the hearty support of Austria-
Hungary. The Austro-Hungarian delegates, so tar as can be learned at present, are not likely to make any special
motions within the conference. They
have received strict instructions to
maintain as reserved an attitude as possible.
Madrid, June 11.���The recent union
of Spain and England with the present
intimate relations between the governments of the two countries renders it
practically certain that Spain, at the
coming Hague conference, will closely
follow in the wake of England, Indeed,
It is not Impossible tbat she may advance tentatively, propositions which
England may not care, for the moment,
to openly espouse. The appointment
of Senor Villa Urrutla, tho Spanish
ambassador to London and an enthusiastic Anglophile as chief plenipotentiary,
ts considered conclusive on this point.
For Instance, It Is certain that Spain Is,
following with England In tbe lead, to
oppose the Immunity of private property at sea and advance the same reasons
for her attitude. Spain also favors the
principle of limitation of armaments, although at present Bhe affirms her right
to improve her own defensive land and
sea forces on the ground tbat her present armament, really considered, is deficient. Her present war and navy
budget provides for an increased expenditure of 60,000,000 pesetas during the
next eight years. Involving a complete
reorganisation of fortifications and the
construction of several new battleships
and torpedo destroyers. Spain may also
advance a concrete proposition for a
maximum armament for each country
based upon population and territory, colonial as well as at home. Upon only
ono question is Spain likely to he at
loggerheads with England, tbe adoption
of the Drago doctrine. Unlike England,
Spain favors this principle. Spain will
also probably favor the election of a permanent tribunal at the Hague composed
of eminent international jurists who
will inspire the confidence of the disputants ns being above national political
Portugal's position at the Hague can
oa��ily be summarised, the delegates
will probably support the English position on every point, for in foreign politics Portugal ls now practically a political dependency of the British government.
Rome, June 11.���The situation of Italy
at the second Hague conference, and
especially ber attitude in connection
with the limitation of armaments, has
uliar Importance, because no other
*y Is so directly affected by I the
for supremacy which ls going
thc leading European powers.
Cermarty aud Austrlu exact tlie support
of Italy, because she Is their ally under
the Triple Alliance; England, because
of tho affinity of their views and their
traditional friendship;  France; because
of the commercial and economic Interests binding them.
The struggle which has been going on
to secure Italy's support finally led to
Signor Tlltonl's statement ln the -chamber of deputies on May 15th. This may
be taken as Italy's final stand, and ln
substance it reflects a conservative middle course, by which Italy maintains her
friendly attitude to tbe British peace
proposals and at tbe same time renews
her loyalty to Germany and Austria by
sharing tbelr reservations on tbe impracticability of the Immediate realisation of tbe British plan.
With regard to the Russian programme communicated to the powers,
Italy is disposed to widen, as much as
possible, tbe functions and competence
of tho arbitration tribuanal, and further
limit the questions affecting the "honor
and vital interests" eo much discussed
in 1899, which have to be excluded from
Toklo, Jnne 11.���Apparently, Japan
approaches the Hague with a tentative
programme to be given definite shape
by the developments of the conference.
The government, beyond formal expression of a desire that the conference may
be productive of beneficial results, has
maintained much reserve regarding Its
attitude on the larger questions'which
will come up, but prominent men in
both official and private life have not-
concealed their belief that any practical
results are at best problematical.
Broadly speaking, It Is believed that the
Japanese delegates will act in close harmony with Great Britain and will be
found in alignment with that -country on
all important matters..
As regarding the purely military subjects which will come up before the conference, such as the regulating of hostilities by land and sea, the use of floating mines, control of wireless telegraph,
and kindred matters, Japan feels that
recent events have given her a practical knowledge wblch the conference
cannot fail to recognize, and her delegates are expected to assume a prominent place in any such discussions. In
the main, however, Japan feels that as
far aB she ls concerned the Hague conference is principally of importance ln
the opportunity It affords to emphasise
her position In International affairs.
Diamonds in Paper Parcel Floated on
8urf��ce All  Night���Luck of
J. O. Patomude.
It can no longer be successfully maintained that the days of miracles have
gone forever. The experience of J. O.
Patenaude, the Nelson Jeweler, bears
this out without fear of successful contradiction. Yesterday afternoon Mr.
Patenaude was showing a customer
some diamonds. In the parcel ln
his hand were 31 diamonds, quarter
and half carats, and valued at 11,200.
Just about the time he was through conversing with his customer something
else attracted his attention, and instead
of returning the parcel to the safe he
hurriedly placed it in his vest pocket.
Other matters took up his attention tor
some time and he forgot all about the
$1,200 parcel of diamonds in his pocket.
Time came for locking up the atore, and
tben Mr. Patenaude took his canoe and
paddled over to his house on the other
side of the lake. This morning after
he opened up his store he went to his
workshop to give orders about some
work that was to be done. It was a
brooch which was being made in the
shape of a butterfly and which was to
be studded with some of the diamonds.
Then he went to the sate, but the diamonds could not be found. He thought
tor some time, and all at once it
dawned on him that he had had the diamonds out yesterday, and that instead
of returning them to the sate had
placed them In his vest pocket. The
vest was searched, but the diamonds
could not be found. Then lt occurred
to him that he might have dropped them
getting in or out of his canoe. He started for the boat house aud searched, but
without success. Then he crossed over
Ihe lake to the landing place on the opposite side. When within about 30 feet
of the place where he usually landed
his attention was attracted to a sheet
of paper floating on the water, and as he
came nearer he recognised the paper in
which the diamonds had been wrapped
up. But the parcel was undone. However, he paddled close up and picked
up the open piece of paper, and there
were the 31 diamonds���not one missing.
When it Is considered that there was a
reavy wind blowing last evening, this
recovery of the lost diamonds Ib still
more miraculous. It Is a wonder that
the paper parcel was not blown still
further out ln the lake. No doubt they
had been dropped when Mr. Patenaude
was getting out of his canoe.
Debs' Little Joke.
Glrard, Kas., June 10.���Eugene V.
Debs, ln his Appeal to Reason, has
sprung a sensation by announcing the
candidacy of William D. Haywood, now
on trial at Boise, Idaho, for the murder
of former Governor Steunenberg, for
president of the United States. Debs
and his paper have for months been
fighting In the Interests of the accused
officials of the Western Federation of
Miners, hut this extreme step has come
aB a distinct surprise.

Hon. Charles S Hyman. minister of
public works in tht Laurier government.
has rsesissned���we hardly know whether
we -should say - again." or "at las-.." Presumably he is eniitle-d to draw, and ta��
drawn, his salary for the last ye-ar. How.
erer no one will mind that in these*
prosperous times. The toss of Mr. Hy-
man is cheap at any price.
Mr. Hyman wili be remembered in
Canadian political history, if at all. only
for the grct-e*iue trifling with parliament that accompanied the presentation
of his long-drawn-out reafgoatioiL He
has done nothing worthy of mention as
minister of public works, and haa made
no memorable contnbmioc to debate
Since the dUmi-j-xal of Israel Tarte
there haa never be-en a man of ability
at the bead of the public works department. ��od. in esanseqnenoe. nothing of
Importance hat bees acconpliabed by
that department.
There are now two vacancies In the
cabinet, tbe two most important, except
perhaps the finance department. There
wili proiably sostw be a third. If H R
Emme-^oc has to retire there can be no
excuse for retaining Sir Fr-e-derici
It win be interesting to see bow tbe
vacancies will be filled. Cabinet material must be felling rather ~cir;e
S-s:d��-i S:r W:lfr '. 7 -...-������ ������-
members ot the cabinet are Mr. Held
ing. Sir Ricbard Cartwright. Se-iator
Scott. Mr Paterson and Mr. P<iher Mr
fielding cannot safely be taken from
tbe finao-ce departmeot. Mr Hsier has
been a conscesticas and uselu: minister of agriculture. He may deserve promotion, but tbere is probably no other
department is which be can do as much
Ior the good of the country.
Sir Richard Cartwright, Senator
Scott and Mr. Paterson are all to old
to transplant.
Of th e new members that have "not
been cons-picuous failures Mr. Lemieux
has done very creditably, and might well
be given charge of one of the more im-
portant departments.
lf the depletion of the ranks and the
necessity for a shuffle brings promotion
to Mr. Templeman British Columbians,
reganiiess of party affiliations, will be
pleased. Bot there would probabiy be
regret If any but a British Columbian
were given the department of mines,
and Mr. Templeman is the only possible
minister from this province at present.
Unless the rani and file of the Liberal representation in the House con-
tains some hitherto undiscovered genius
the cabinet will soon be as hard to 81!

"The Nati:nal Policy has now triumphed over all iu enemies. It has

me-ticned an income tax as a possible
f-ture source of revenue, ln doing so
he evidently expected the suggestion to
startle his hearers. There is co reason
why it -should. There may even be other
ideas that America could profitably import. A graduated income tax is probably the best means of enabling the
mal-.l-miliionaires to contribute equitably w the national treasury.
From the utterances of prominent
Japanese* at home and in America It is
evident that the urging of the government of Japan to do something is ..-.-7���
ly a political move, the opposition try-
ins to embarrass the ministers. Discrimination against Japanese children
in the schools of San Francisco, and an
assault, even if unprovoked, upon a
couple of Japanese rest-urant keepers.

The Dafly Canadian
Fall. Wearing Their Way Toward! Lake
Erie���Rate of R --jasion It
Five Feet Each Year.
The recently Issued report of the United States Geological Survey, "Kate of
Recension of Niagara Falls," by G. K.
Gilbert contains the following interesting data:
"The rate of recession of the Horse-
shoo Fall, or the rate of lengthening of
the Niagara Oorge during the 63 years
from 1842 to 1905 is found to bo 5 feet
per annum wltb an uncertainty of 1
foot. For the 33 years from 1842 to
1875 the rate was apparently slower
than for the 30 years from 1875 to 1906.
The rate of recession of the American
Fall during the 78 years from 1827 to
1905 was Icbs than 3 Inches per annum.
The time consumed in the recession of
the falls from the escarpment at Lewis-
ton (7 miles distant), to their present
poslllon or the age of the river is not
estimated. It cannot bo properly computed without taking Into account all
conditions, local and temporary, affecting the rate of recession and some of
these conditions have varied greatly
from point to point and from time to
Le Conte, in his "Elements of Geology," innks-s the following statement:
"All attempts to estimate accurately
the time consumed In excavating Nl-
iignrii Gorge must be unreliable, since
we do not yet know the circumstances
which controlled the rate of recession
at different stages of Its progress.
Among these circumstances, the most
important are the volumes of water, and
especially lhe hardness of the rocks,
and the insuiii, s in which hard and soft
are superposed. The present position
of the falls Is apparently favorable for
rapid recession. Mr. Lyell thinks, from
personal observation, that the average
rate could not have been more than 1
foot per annum, and probably much less.
At this rate It would require about 36,-
000 years. More recent estimates make
the probable rate 3 feet per year, and
the time, therefore, 12,000 years. But
whether we adopt the one or the other
estimate, this time must not he confounded with the age of the earth.
"The work of excavating the Niagara
chasm belongs to the present epoch, aud
the time Is absolutey Inslgnaflcant in
comparison wllh thc inconceivable earlier ages."

Few Crops Damaged, and Only Slightly
by Late Sea.on���C. Rlchter's
Fruit Prospects.
Since last sprint;, (ruit growers and
farmers, big and small, bave lost no
time in looking after their holdings, and
the result ls seen In the luxurious
growth that everywhere meets the eye.
That magnificent growth of alfalfa of
Frank Rlchter's, some 130 acres in one
block, awaiting the mowing machines,
Is a drawing card that Is bound to captivate visitors who come to the valley.
Hut it is his peerless orchard that takes
the greater part of Mr. Rlchter's time
these days, and while he can get hands
to help in the haying he finds it difficult
to get competent help for work in the
Last winter was a most trying one to
the fruit Industry all over the continent,
and in some of the wannest localities
the trees suffered most. In Mr. Richter'B
orchard the peach crop appears to have
fared worst, and portions of the orchard
that were sheltered from the north wind
seem to have been less fortunate than
those more exposed. The apple crop will
not be as heavy as usual, but plums, apricots etc., appear well-loaded. Tbe
damage to his almond trees ,some of
which suffered severely, is most re-
most regretted by Mr. Rlchter.
ln his orchard and garden be is waging ceaseless war with the weeds, out
of which he takes a good deal of real
satisfaction, for a rank growth of weeds,
aB long as they are kept down, indicates
richness in the soil.
The young orchards set out last year
on the Keremeos Land company's property for themselves and those who purchased from them seem to have come
on very well, and the ground in most
cases is being kept in good order. Along
the range between Rlchter's and Mrs.
Daly's that has been supplied with water from the new flume, are many fine-
looking orchards, some looking better
than others, which shows that Individual holdings will respond to the particular treatment given them. One particularly healthy one is that of Mr. Jelly,
and some who favor the idea of home
grown nursery stock point to the fact
that Mr. Jelly's trees had this advantage, coming as they did from the nursery of Martin ilurrill at Grand Forks.
On a portion of their ground which
Is down nearer the level of Keremeos
creek, the Oregon Nursery Co. has commenced operations. They have 40 acres
under lease in which they have planted
10,000 dormant pear buds, 75,000 dormant peach buds, 11-2 tons of peach
pits, 50,000 apple seedlings, 50,000 apple grafts and 10,000 dormant apple
buds, and all seem to be doing welt,
even the peach pits having broken
through the ground and started sunward. They expect to have some stock
ready for the market this fall and much
more next spring.
Much interest at present Is centering
on the Webster estate, recently purchased by Mr. C. A. Macdonald and now
being divided Into 10 and 5-acre lots.
The splendid results ln fruit growing,
or for that part, of anything which Mr.
Bullock-Webster attempted to grow, has
amply demonstrated the value of the
property, and only the disadvantage of
being cut oft* by the river prevented It
being better known to visitors. The
property itself ls of considerable extent, and when divided up will support
a good large population; besides, the
existence of other farms over there will
demand the construction of a bridge in
the near future, and then the property
will be next door to everywhere.���Hedley Gazette.

Loaa by Fire.
Last week the C. P. R. lost something
like $20,000 by ihe destruction of the
Baker creek trestle on the Boundary
branch, sparks from a locomotive having set flre to the structure.
A meeting of those interested In the
floral exhibit at the Nelson Fair was
held in G. C. Hodge's offices last nigMt.

Successful Park Concert.
The city authorities are well satis-
fled wiih the result of the flrst Sunday
park concert. The two cars were taxed
to their uttermost all afternoon, the receipts bein gsufflclent to defray all expenses and leave a substantial margain.
Purchased a Ranch.
Dr. Wlllson has purchased Harry Williams' ranch up the lake. The place is
an ideal spot for a summer residence. It

next year, besides all the buildings necessary for carrying on chicken raising
on a large scale.
Back Again.
R. L. Richardson, of the Winnipeg
Tribune, spent set-era) days up at Procter Ashing. It Is not feared that as a
result of Mr. Richardson's two days'
Ashing expedition the waters of the
Kootenay will be completely cleared of
fish. As a matter of fact, only one fish
was caught during the two days, but It
was big enough to make It the basis of
a good fish story when Mr. Richardson returns to the Prairie capital. He
will remain in the city for a day or so
Men Wanted.
According to the Phoenix Pioneer, in
the neighborhood of 500 more men can
be given employment in the various
mines and three smelters of the Boundary district, at the best wages paid In
any part of Canada or the West, for
similar work. For the last week men
have been coming ln steadily and the
mines and smelters are fast getting
back to their normal capacity, but, as is
well known, it is the intention to increase the output of copper even beyond that of the season before the last
labor trouble In the coal fields that tied
up two or three local smelting plants.
