A Spokane despatch dated
April 28th says that frost and
snow have combined in the

the fact that entire orchards

hardship for hundreds of fruit
growers who last week saw a
prosperous season looming.

Opposition.to the working of
the Lord's Day Act is assuming
organized form in different
places in the east. In Toronto
the good an organization
known as the Canadian Rational
Sunday League was recently
formed, the purposes of which
will appear from the following
resolution passed at its first
meeting: That it is desirable
to organize an association similar to the London National Sunday League for promoting
healthy and innocent recreation
on Sundays, and to oppose tyrannical and restrictive legislation regarding Sunday, and it is
felt that recent legislation on
this subject has been carried too
far, interfering with individual
liberty to an extent unknown in
any other country under the
British flag. That this association be called the Canadian Rational Sunday League, and that
its declared objects be: To
promote rational Sunday recreation, to secure the opening of
picture galleries, museums and
reading rooms on Sundays, to
provide music on Sunday afternoons in the park or other convenient places, to obtain legislation allowing a charge to be
made for popular Sunday lectures or concerts, and to oppose
restrictive Sunday legislation regarding Sunday observance."
of citizens of "the soon-to-be city
of Chilliwack." Mr. West needed
no introduction in Chilliwack.
The address was preceded by a
solo by Mrs. (Dr.) Henderson
and followed by a duet by Mr.
and Mrs. Robt. Marshall, both of
which elicited applause from
the audience. In rising the
speaker deprecated the use of
the formal word lecture in application to such an informal
talk as he wished to give his
hearers. He was here not to
orate to them, but rather to have
a plain, simple, heart-to-heart
talk about matters concerning
the best interests of this beautiful valley. He referred feelingly
to the fact that a number of our
respectable pioneers had passed
away since he was last here. We
should cherish the memory of
those who had faced the more
rigorous conditions of pioneer
days and follow them with kindly
thought to their last resting
Our narrow space limits will
not permit a reproduction of the
many good things which the
speaker said. He made a strong
appeal for a due appreciation of
ourselves and our opportunities.
"Now I believe," said he, "that
this province is going to become
the grandest province in this
Dominion. I have been for 22
years in this conntry. I have
watched the developments of
this country and I believe
to-day that we by virtue
of the position which we occupy
in the British Empire and upon
the commercial map of the
world, have a future grander
than any province in the whole
Dominion of Canada. Not only
so but I believe that the resources and natural conditions of
the Chilliwack Valley make it
Eossible for us to make this the
rightest spot in the brightest
province of the Dominion.
Cities may have their advantages, but the first city was
built by Cnin and every city since
has been built upon predominating selfishness.'' After enlarging jpon the advantages of rural
life and the peculiar beauties
and rich resources of Chilliwack,
the speaker pointed out that
more than these are required in
as a temperance community.
Moral tone means material prosperity. We must stand together,
patronize local institutions and
above all refuse to be caught in
the destructive meshes of the
prevailing spirit of speculation.
Mr. West is always enthusiastic over the future of Chilliwack
and his words are ever helpful.
All who heard him on Tuesday
night turned away with greater
contentment with their lot in this
God blessed community and a
stronger determination to make
the most of it.
A hearty vote of thanks and
the singing of "God be with you
till we meet again" brought to a
close a very pleasant evening.

Quotations On
Quite recently there has been
more or less discussion as to the
origin of the postage stamp.
Perhaps the most authentic story
is that which comes from the
PoBt Office Department at Washington.
It appears that about sixty-five
years ago Rowland Hill was
travelling through one of the
northern districts of England,
and for a time was sojourning at
an inn where the postman came
with the letter for a young
daughter of the innkeeper. The
young miss turned the letter over
and over in her hand, and after
examining the envelope minutely
enquired the price of the postage,
which was a shilling. She sighed
sadly and returned the letter to
the postman, saying that it was
from her brother, but that she
had no money.
Mr. Hill was an on-looker and
was touched with pity. He paid
the postage, and his action seemed
to embarass the girl. When the
postman had gone she stated to
Mr. Hill that some signs marked
on the envelope conveyed to her Branches througout Canada and
all she wanted to know, and that! Newfoundland, and in London, Eng-

inclosed. In extenuation she
said that she and her brother had
contrived a code system of communicating, as neither of them
were able to pay post charges.
Mr. Hill thought of the results
of a system which made such
frauds possible. Before another
day he had planned a postal system
upon the present basis. ���Harper's

largest Sunday schools in the
world��� Bethany Sunday-school,
in Philadelphia. It is said of
Mr. Wanamaker that one Sunday
he delivered before the infant
class of Bethany a brief but eloquent address on the lesson. At
the end he said, "And now is
there any question that any little
boy or girl would like to ask me?"
A girllof eight or nine years

Returned Empties,
One of the suburbs of Chicago
is the site of a well-known school
of theology; from which go out
each week-end many members of
the senior class to try their voices
as "supplies." A passenger on
a Monday morning train was surprised at the number of them
who got off at the station. ' 'What
are all those chaps getting off
here ?" he asked the brakeman.
Them?" asked the brakeman.
Oh, they're returned empties,

An Irishman was sitting in a
smoker's seat in a street car in
St. Paul the other day, when a
young woman sitting down remarked: "Sir, if you were a
gentleman you wouldn't smoke
inhere." "Mum," he said, "if
yez wuz a leddy, y'ed go up
front." Pretty soon the woman
burst out, "If you were my husband I'd give you poison.'' ' 'Well,
mum" returned the Irishman, as
he puffed away at his pipe, "If
yez wuz me woife, I'd take it."
A Return Cut-
Mayor Dunne, of Chicago, recently visited a   barber  shop
where the barber,   failing to recognize him, was very talkative.
"Have you  ever    been  here
before?" he asked.
"Once," said the mayor,
"Strange that I don't recall
your face."
"Not at all," the mayor assured him. "It altered greatly
in healing."���Sel.

Sir James Watson's Opinion.
He says that the commonest of all
disorders, and one from which few escape is Catarrh. Sir James firmly believes in local treatment, which is best
supplied by "Catarrhozone." No case
of Catarrh can exist where Catarrhozone is used; it is a miracle worker,
relieves almost instantly and cures after
other remedies fail. Other treatments
can't reach the diseased parts like
Catarrhozone because it goes to the
source of the trouble along with the air
you breathe. Catarrhozone is free
from cocaine, it leaves no bad aftereffects, it is simply nature's own cure.
Accept no substitute for Catarrhozone
which alone can cure Catarrh.���Adv. 16 THE FRASER ADVANCE, CHILLIWACK, B. C, SATURDAY, MAY 4, 1907.

or it should never be placed on
statute books. In this case even
the most enthusiastic partisan !
must admit that the Federal
Government lias been guilty of
an act of moral cowardice, and
even though we may regret that
tho Attorney-General should have
taken the stand which he has, we
can scarcely blame him for passing ino responsibility back to
the constitutional authorities of
tho Dominion.
At the Grave.
Attorney General Fulton is
being made the object of no small
amount of criticism for his decision not to consent to any prosecutions under the Lord's Day
Act, as announced by him on
the floors of the House on the
afternoon of prorogation. Press
and pulpit are alike outspoken
in their denunciations of his attitude in this matter and his
ears must be tingling these days.
The Week, which has been one of
the leading champions of the
Act, believes that in expressing
disappointment at the decision
of the Attorney-General it is
voicing the opinion of the
majority of the people of British
Columbia, but has the fairness to
add that Mr. Fulton's action
"may Ik.1 regarded more as a
protest against the course pursued by the Dominion Government than as inticating any personal hostility to the provisions
of the Lord's Day Act." The
stricture contained in the remarks of Prin. Sipperell of Columbian College before the congregation of the Metropolitan
Methodist Church, Victoria, last
Sunday night, was much more
severe. The latter is reported as
saying, "when I see in our land
the emphasis put on the secular
and commercial and a disregard
shown to the sacred, when I see
men like the Attorney-General of
the province opening the door to
the destruction of our Christian
Sabbath I say such men are
driving the sword of a gross
materialism into the heart of our
national life and stifling the convictions Unit ure among tho
grandest and noblest man can
The congregation is said to
have applauded these words.
We have already expressed our
sympathy with Mr. Fulton in the
unfortunate position in which he
has been placed by the provisions
of the Act. Whether he has pursued the proper course omot will
be a matter of individual judgment, but this one thing is clear,
no government, provincial or
'ederal, has a right to place upon
the shoulders of any one man
the responsibility of determining
whether its enactments shall become law or remain a dead letter.
Either the law should be made
and enforced in the usual way,
One of the most serious questions affecting the immediate interests of Chilliwack is the problem of a permanent and accessible
landing for the Westminster
boats. The work done two
years ag o by the Dominion Government has proven highly disappointing, if not a flat failure.
Despite the thousands of dollars
spent in dredging out the channel
up Hope Slough and in building
a breakwater, the boats have
been unable since early fall to
get up to the wharf. It was
naturally expected that the rising water would meet the difficulty, and indeed for a few days
theTboats did make the wharf,
but as the water has risen it has
carried more sand and silt into
the mouth of the channel and
now they can only reach the
lower bar. It begins to look as
if we should have the use of the
wharf only during the excessive
flood season. Something must
be done and anybody who
has a suggestion will be gladly
heard. We may have something
to say ourselves on the subject a
little later.
A* we go to press high hopes
are entertained that both the
coal miners' strike in East Kootenay and Alberta, and the Carpenters' strike in Vancouver may
be settled in a few days.

The announcement of the sudden death of Mrs. Asael Munro,
which reached Chilliwack last
Saturday morning, came as quite
a shock to the community. Some
months ago Mrs. Munro was
taken to the General Hospital in
Vancouver for the purpose of
undergoing an operation. This
was duly performed by Dr. R. E.
MpKechnie and proved quite successful. Recovery was somewhat slow but steady, and a
short time ago the patient was
able to leave the hospital and go
to the home of an old friend,
Mrs. M. A. Tretheway, 652
Keefer Street. Last Friday Mrs.
Munro was feeling exceptionally
well and expected to return
home the following day. A sudden ill turn in the night, however, resulted fatally before the
doctor reached her bedside. The
remains were brought to Chilliwack on Sunday and the funeral,
which was exceptionally large,
took place from her former home
at Camp Slough to the Oddfellows' Cemetery, at 2 o'clock
on Monday afternoon, Rev. R.
F. StiUman officiating. Mrs.
Munro was greatly beloved by
all who knew her, and
the bereaved family have
the sincere sympathy of
the entire community in
their affliction. She leaves an
invalid husband, two sons, C. W.
Munro, M.L.A., and Elgin

An Excellent Whitewash.
A piece of information that is
continually in request is a recripe
for whitewash that will not wash
off. We do not suppose there is
such a thing, but the following
is considered as good an article
as there is in its line. It was
used by U. S. Grant to whitewash
the White House at Washington.
Some time ago there was published an autograph letter, written
in December, 1871, by Mr. Grant,
then President of the United
States, to a friend in California,
in which this formula was given.
It has since been widely published in bulletins, and the agricultural press. "The Farmer's
Advocate'' advises every reader
to cut it out and keep in a safe,
convenient place for reference.
Here it is:
Half a bushel of unslacked
lime. Slack with warm water;
cover it ��� during the process.
Strain the liquid through a
fine sieve or strainer; add a peck
of salt previously well dissolved
in warm water, three pounds of
ground rice boiled to a thin paste,
and stir in boiling hot; half
pound Spanish whiting, and a
pound of glue which has previously been dissolved over a slow
fire, and add five gallons hot
water to the mixture; stir well
and let it stand for a few days,
covered up from the dirt. It
should be put on hot. One pint
of the mixture will cover a
square yard, properly applied.
Small brushes are best. There
is hothing that can compare with
it for outside or inside work, and
it retains it brillancy for many
years. Coloring matter may be
put in, and made of any shade-
Spanish brown, yellow ochre, or
common clay. ���The Farmer's
Spraying Only a partial Success
This Year.
The Advance took occasion
this week to interview Henry
Kipp, one of Chilliwack's oldest
fruit growers, regarding the
spraying operations which have
been going on in the valley since
the visit of Inspector Cunningham about a month ago. Asked
what he thought of the plan and
programme of the Board of
Horticulture, Mr. Kipp said :
"The plan is all right if they had
started three months earlier.
They should have begun away
back in January; they didn't
start quick enough, the season
is now upon us. In point of
fact they should have been half
or two-thirds through when they
began. You perhaps know that
the lime, sulphur and salt solution, which is being used, ought
to be applied when the trees are
dormant, otherwise it will burn
up the tender leaves, and although they will come again it is
a shock to the trees. Inspector
Cunningham is a first-rate man
in his position, but has altogether
too much work to do. He cannot be in twenty places at once,
but that is about what is required in carrying out a general
spraying programme such as the
present. Had the hardware men
been notified in time so that they
could have stocked up with
pumps and materials, then the
people could have readily
equipped themselves to obey the
orders of the deputy inspectors
to spray their orchards within
ten days. As it is, it has been
absolutely impossible for them
to do the work. The necessary
outfits could not be secured
within the specified time, and
there ha3 been no time to send
for them outside. It is too late.
Besides this, the scarcity of labor
has added to the difficulty of the
situation, The work will be
very incomplete and ineffective
this year and I do not look for
the success that a good many
hope for. The Board of Horticulture will feel indignant be
cause the work has not been carried out, but the trouble eman-
ted from them in the first place
because they did not move
quickly enough.
"When one hundred people
want two or three pumps, they
cannot all have them at once. I
don't believe that there are half
a dozen spraying outfits in the
whole valley. It is not because
the people are unwilling, but because they are absolutely unable
to carry out the orders of the
Inspector that the results will be
disappointing for the present
year. The outcome is going to
be either that many valuable
trees will be destroyed by order
of the Inspector for non-compliance with his notices, or the
Board will suffer a loss of prestige because of not enforcing the
regulations in conformity to its
Asked as to the prospects of the
fruit crop far the coming season,
Mr. Kipp replied, "It is too
early to predict with certainty.
Up to last Saturday the promise
of a big cherry crop was first
rate. But the sharp frost on the
night of the 27th ult. cut the
blossoms pretty badly. However, the cherries were formed
and may survive all right. We
shall know in a few days.
Apples and pears were not sufficiently far advanced to be in
danger, only cherries, peaches
and apricots were affected."
Mr. Kipp has great confidence
in the future of the fruit industry
of the Fraser Valley and of Chilliwack in particular. He says
that we have a number of pests
here, but there are known remedies for them all and they can
easily be kept in check by care
and industry. He believes that
with our 25 years of experience
and our favourable climate we
have a decided advantage over
the fruit growers of the interior
of the province. As evidence of
this fact he points out that a
large number of trees in the irrigated districts up country were
burst by the hard frosts of the
past winter. The artificial watering of the trees often results in
keeping the sap up too late, and
an early or severe winter catches
them in a state of unpreparedness
to withstand the cold. Under the
more favorable natural conditions
here it is our own fault if we do
not succeed.
Sugar Statistics.
The consumption of sugar in
the United States is increasing
rapidly, more rapidly than is the
production. During the year j ust
ended we used the enormous
amount of 6,500,000,000 pounds
of sugar, worth $300,000,000. If
each citizen got his fair share,
during the twelve months he
consumed 76 pounds. Of this
sugar only one-fifth was produced
in the United States; one-fifth
came from the island possessions,
and three-fifths was imported
from foreign countries. Of the
American produced sugar, a little
over half was from the sugar-
beet, the remainder from
cane. This is the first time the
beet-sugar has exceeded in quantity that manufactured from
sugar cane. During the last ten
years the increase in the consumption of sugar has been three
times as great as the increased
domestic production.���Scientific

Christianity In the Orient
The annual expenditures for
foreign missions by all countries
amount to $15,000,008. America
alone contributes something
more than one-third of this total.
Though ill-considered charges are
sometimes made that it costs
ninety-nine cents to send out
each dollar contributed, and that
the missionaries are themselves
' 'a pack of scoundrels,'' there is
no graft" in the finances and
naught but zeal on the part of
the agents. This large sum is
being expended honestly and
economically, and the only question for securing the grandest
results is one of method.
Prof. F. A. Christie has
pointed out, in a recent issue of
The Christian Register, that, in
the past the appeal of Christianity has been addressed to
different peoples in different
ways; it has been all things to
all men. "Christianity won the
Greco-Roman world by stating
itself in terms of general history.
It viewed Jesus not simply as an
elect agent ;of the Messianic
kingdom, but as the vehicle of
the Logos who was the principle
of all history. Christianity
claimed the souls of men by becoming for them the very meaning of that wisdom which had
been poured upon the spirit both
of Hebrew prophets and of Gentile sages. It was the essence
and ideal significance of all the
tradition that made the formative conditions of their personal
lives. It is inconceivable that a
civilization of matured culture
could . have been won by any
other method."
After showing that Christianity came as a total civilization
to the Germanic peoples���that
they were converted in masses
by a process only possible for
children, and that while the
Greek pagan was persuaded,
brought to insight and conviction, the German pagan was converted, Professor Christie considers the methods in the Orient
"The peoples of India and
other parts of Asia are not children.    They have an established
civilization which will not be
lightly discarded at foreign suggestion. Their culture, their
social or technical organization,
spring from a life of ancient and
remembered grandeur, from a
rich past which yields them
idealizing influence and confers
a dignity upon them. . . .
There can be no {abrupt conquest \
of an Oriental mind like the con- *
Suests made by Augustinus in
Lent or by Boniface at Geismar.
We must use the sane and rational process of the early Alexandrian school."
Attention is also called to the
fact that "just when Christian
feeling is reacting with a more
fervid horror against a war, a
new problem for numanity looms
up in the Orient The Asiatic
peoples are roused to a new self-
consciousness and a militant
The Mongolian races have become tolerant of Christianity.
Japan, which dominates them,
is diplomatically favorable. Her
people have been described as
being a race without a religion,
and, aside from ancestry won
ship, they have few religious
tenets. Seeking entrance into
the family of nations, it has been
suggested that the Crown
Prince is to accept Christianity.
Though this may not happen,
there is every reason to expect
the growth of a Japanese Christian church alongside of her ancient philosophies.
In China, which is hastening
to follow Japan in adopting west-1
em civilization, the case is simi- j
lar; and in Korea, where the
people have been robbed for
generations of ambitions and
hope, the Christian churches are
said to be the only bright spots
in the land.
Convinced that it is Christianity rather than creed that is
demanded in the East, the missionaries are laboring together
as members of one body, of
which Christ is the head, and
through fraternal union are kindling a new light in the Orient���

The visit of Provincial Road and
Bridge Inspector John Sprott to Chilliwack this week may prove of more
than usual importance to Chilliwack.
Beside inspecting the work done at the
Vedder Crossing by the crews in charge
of S. J. Yeomans and A. A. Cruickshank,
and laying out a new road
to Cultns Lake, he made a
trip up the Chilliwac River
as far as Silesia Creek in order to
investigate the practicability of build
ing a suspension bridge at that point
to replace the one carried out by last
fall's freshet. Our readers are familiar with our view of the importance
of replacing this bridge and opening up
the road to Mount Baker, and we are
glad to note that the government is
moving in the matter.
The new bank fixtures for the Bank
of Montreal arrived this week and have
been put into position. New furniture
will soon be installed also, when the

The Advance had a pleasant call on
Wednesday from R. C. McDonald, Indian Agent at Westminster, who paid
a visit to the valley this week on official
business. He was accompanied by
Ashdown Green, of Victoria, surveyor
for the Indian Department, who Inspected the Cultus Lake Reserve with a
view to determining what should be
done to protect the banks of that Re
serve against the encroachments of the
Chilliwack River. Mr. McDonald spoke
very appreciatively of Chilliwack and
said that the Government's wards here
gave him very little trouble.
The Empire Day celebration being
planned by the Lacrosse Club and
Citizens' Band promises to excel previous efforts of the kind. A special
feature of the day will be a monster
parade at 10 a.m., consisting of the
school children of the valley, the fire
brigade, lacrosse teams, football teams
and other novelties as yet unannounced.
The procession will be headed by
Coote's Brigade of about 50 uniformed
boys on horseback. A grand promenade and garden party will be held in
the evening at the Fair grounds. A
pavilion will be erected for the merry
dancers in the evening and the boys
expect a big crowd.
At a recent meeting of the Chilliwack
Epworth League the following resolution was unanimously passed: "It is

efficient services in establishing and
mantaining our young people's society;
and the great interest he has continually
manifested in the young people of the
town generally, always being present
and willing to take the meetings when
the regular leader failed as was often
the case "
Upon information of Deputy Sheriff
Scott, who has been acting constable
for the munieipality since Constable
Calbick was taken ill, A. C. Hummer
and Thos. Lay appeared before Magistrates D. McGillivray and A. L. Coote
on Wednesday afternoon to answer the
charge of selling intoxicating liquors
without license. Mr. Hummer pleaded
not guilty and asked for an adjournment of his case in order to allow him
to be represented by counsel. Mr.
Lay pleaded guilty to the mild impeachment and was accordingly fined
1125 and costs, amounting in all to
$141.25 The charge against Mr. Hummer will be heard on Tuesday afternoon before the same magistrates.

The local Oddfellows observed the
88th anniversary of their institution by
attending service in the Baptist Church
last Sunday morning. The pulpit was
occupied by Rev. B. H. West of Vancouver, formerly pastor of the Baptist
Church here, and himself an Oddfellow.
His discourse was based upon the
parable of the Good Samaritan, with
especial reference to the words, "Go
thou and do likewise." He spoke
generally of the principles for which
Oddfellowship stands and pointedly emphasized the failure of the church to
care for the physical wants of her
needy adherents, a failure which had
resulted in the organization of so many*
fraternal societies. The members of
the lodge were out in good force wearing their distinctive regalia, and the
church was filled to its utmost capacity
with an attentive audience. Mr. West
also spoke in the evening to a large
The period for spraying orchards
with the lime, sulphur and salt solution
has ended with the coming foliage, and
the various parties operating throughout the valley have either stopped work
for a time or have changed to the Bordeaux mixture. The spraying outfit
belonging to the Farmers' Exchange
has been steadily at work as weather
conditions would permit since Feb. 21,
and has put in 46 days of actual duty.
Seventy-six orchards, comprising 10,500
trees, have been sprayed in that time.
Mr. Thornton, who has had charge of
the work, is sitting up nights computing the number of scales destroyed.
When last heard from he was in the
octillions and still going. If he does
not break down with nervous prostration in the meantime, we hope to be
tble to publish the total figures about
July 1st. After a rest of about a
couple of weeks the Exchange plant
will start on a campaign against the
scab, which rendered much of our best
fruit unfit for market last year. The
usual Bordeaux mixture will be used
and thorough work done.
W. T. Jackman, of the Advance staff,
accompanied by Mrs Jackman, left for
Vancouver on Sunday to seek surgical
advice. The latest word is that he wilt
likely undergo an operation in a day or
two. His many friends wish him success and a speedy recovery.
