Reports from Ontario during
the early part of the week said
that on Saturday last a snowfall
of six inches was general
througout the province.
Hindus employed in the mill
at Kaslo, struck last week for
an increase in pay, leaving work
and not returning until their demands were acceeded to.

The first paper mill to be established in British Columbia
will, it is expected, soon be
under way. The Canadian Pacific Sulphite Company is installing machinery for this pnr-
pose at Swanson Bay.
On May 6th the colony of six
Chinese lepers, which has been
located on Darcy Island, in the
Gulf, were shipped to China by
special steamer chartered by the
Dominion Government There is
no longer to be a leper colony
on the Canadian Pacific coast
An exchange asks: Might
not a portion of. the fifty millions
which Mr. Rockefeller is planning to put aside for Chinese
education be effectively used in
saving some of the. unfortunate
children of that nation so they
could be educated ?
Oregon school children on
Peary Day, will contribute from
one to five cents each towards
raising the $60,000 necessary for
the starting of another expedition to the North Pole, and it is
expected that at least $50,000
will be raised.
Dr. Osier, who had unexpectedly arrived from England, addressed the students of McGill
University on the occasion of the
annual convocation last week.
To the students he said his ad-
Ik vice to young men was : "Have
a hobby unconnected with your
business and the earning of your
living."
Stacey & Garland,
Ltd., of New Westminster, have
bought out the Edmonton Logging Co., whose operations cover
thirty-two square miles of timber
lands on Vancouver Island and
up the coast. The purchase
price was in the vicinity of
$200,000.
Emerson Hough, author of the
"Mississippi Bubble,," and many
other popular novels, is in Seattle
en route to Alaska, where he
will hunt bear and at the same
time gather material for future
stories for eastern periodicals.
He is accompanied by Mrs.
Hough.
On Tuesday morning the
North Coast Limited, east-
bound, was held up by bandits
18 miles east of Butte, Montana.
The bandits used firearms freely,
killing the engineer and wounding the fireman. After the
hold-up the robbers fled into the
mountains without having
gained access to the safe. The
train carried large consignments of currency, which was
the object of the holdup.
Although the. meeting of representatives of the various fruit
growers' associations and farmers' exchanges, which assembled at Armstrong on the 24th
and 25th of April, was quite unostentatious, yet it is likely to
prove one of the epoch-making
gatherings in the development
of the fruit industry of this
province. The meeting was
called by James Johnston of
Nelson, president of the B.C.
Fruit Growers' Association, and
was attended by the following
gentlemen: W. J. Brandrith,
Ladner; P. E. Lazenby, Mission
City; P. H. Wilson, Chilliwack;
W. Hammel, Hammond; J. Mc-
Callum, Salmon Arm; F. Hogg,
any business whatever which
may be conducive to the inter
ests of its members.
The executive officers of the
Chilliwack Farmers' Exchange
met on Wednesday afternoon to
receive the report of their representative to the Armstrong
Convention. The new undertaking was unanimously approved, and P. H. Wilson reappointed to represent the local
Exchange at the adjourned convention which will assemble at
Revelstoke on May 22, and was
given authority to act in behalf
of this Exchange to commit it
to the organization proposed.
It is intended to get the new
plan in working shape in ample
time to handle the present
season's output.

Rev. J. H. Morgan, president
of the Manitoba Methodist Conference and pastor of Fort
Rouge Methodist Church, died
on Monday morning in the Winnipeg General Hospital. He was
operated on for appendicitis on
Saturday. He was 41 years of
age, and a graduate of the Wes-
leyan College, and had charge of
Lethbridge, Kenora, Holland and
Kewatin during the past few
years.
Dr. Alexander Graham Bell,
inventor of the telephone, recently stated that it is only a
question of a brief period when
the progress of aerial navigation
will make it possible to have
dinner in America and breakfast
next morning in Europe, covering the distance across the Atlantic in less than 20 hours. Dr.
Bell received the degree of Doctor of Science at Oxford, on May
2nd.
Dr. John Watson (Ian Mac-
Laren) died at Mount Pleasant,
Iowa, on Monday, of blood
poisoning, following tonsilitis.
Dr. Watson, on April 23, left
Minneapolis for Mount Pleasant,
to deliver a lecture to the students of Wesleyan University.
En route he became ill and was
compelled to cancel his engagement. Dr. Watson's end, sudden and unexpected, was hastened by heart trouble. His wife
was with him during his illness.

The disadvantages under
which the growers of British
Columbia labor in the marketing
of their fruit, was thoroughly
discussed, and the convention
unanimously decided upon the
organization of 'The Fruit
Growers' Exchange of British
Columbia," through which the
entire output of the different
associations and exchanges now
in existence might be advantageously distributed to the different markets. It was freely
acknowledged by all that the
present unsystematic handling
of fruit often resulted in unnecessary disaster. Without some
plan of co-operation it often happens that the market at a single
point is inadvertently glutted
with perishable fruit while some
other point is left entirely without supply. To obviate this
difficulty it is proposed that distribution shall be made through
one centraljmanagement for the
whole province, which will be
located at Revelstoke. A Memorandum and Articles of Association and By-Laws have been
drafted and are being submitted
to the different organizations for
approval. While the immediate
object will be the handling of
fruit, the new Exchange will secure broad powers, enabling it
to handle all kinds of agricultural produce and to engage in
The second Act in the liquor
prosecutions mentioned in our
columns last week, took place on
Tuesday last in the Chilliwack
Court House, when the adjourned case against A. C. Hummer, manager, steward, secretary, landlord, guardian, and
god-father of "The Chilliwack
Club," came up before Justices
D. McGillivray and A. L. Coote.
The municipality was represented by J. H. Bowes and the defendant by Mr. Innis, of Taylor
& Innis of Vancouver.
The prosecution called four
witnesses to prove that intoxicating liquors had been procured and imbibed on the defendant's premises. In each
case the beverages had been
dealt out by the accused and
were given in exchange for
tickets secured by or through
members of the Chilliwack Club.
Mr. Hummer took the stand in
his own behalf and endeavored
to convince the court that he was
legally authorized to dispense
spirituous drinks as manager of
the before-mentioned ciub to the
members thereof and to their
friends. His story limped
pretty badly when he was forced
to admit that, while his so-
called "club" was nominally incorporated for the purpose of recreation and gymnastic exercises,
the only recreation apparently
furnished to its members was
the opportunity to swallow
sundry and clivers quantities of
ardent spirits, and the gymnastic exercises were confined to
certain well understood flections
of the elbow essential to the
same. Their honors were not
visibly moved by his declaration
that a gymnasium qufit had been
ordered but had not yet arrived,
especially as the "club ' had enjoyed a corporate existence since
September 11, 1906. His further
deposition that the only property of the "club" consisted of a
stock of liquors and cigars,  that

To proTeunqnnstlonably.nna beyond any doubt,
that Catarrh ot the noso and throat can be cured,
I am furnishing patients through druggists, small

Ido this because I am so certain, that Dr. Shoop's
Catarrh Cure will bring actual substantial help.
Nothing certainly, Is so convincing as a physical
testof any article of real, genuine merit. But that
article must possess true merit, else the test will
condemn, rather than advance It. Dr. Shoop's
Catarrh Cure Is a snow white, healing antiseptic
balm, put up In beautiful nickel capped glass Jan

Thymol, Menthol, etc., are Incorporated Into a
velvety, cream like Petrolatum, Imported by Dr.
Shoop from Europe. If Catarrh of the nose ana
throat has extended to the stomach, then by all
means also use Internally, Dr. Shoop's Restorative.
Stomach distress, a lack of general strength,
bloating, belching, biliousness, bad taste, etc
surely call for Dr. Shoop's Restorative.
For uncomplicated catarrh only of the nose and

Wild Cat Fruit Land*
The Kaslo Kootenain sounds a
note of warning to intending
purchasers of advertized fruit
lands in the neighborhood of
that city. It calls attention to
the fact that large areas of
"steep rocky mountain slopes"
have been staked with an apparent view to being cut up into
small lots and sold in the east as
fruit lands. The injury that
will result to the whole district
by such fraudulent dealings
rightly stirs the ire of the Koo-
tenaian to appeal to the honest
element in the community to
protect itself.   It says :
Kaslo has too much at stake to
allow this fraud to go on. Our
Board of Trade and Horticultural
Society should take the matter
up. Investors should be warned
and requested that on buying
land (supposed to be here) to
secure an absolute guarantee as
to its value, or write to any responsible party in Kaslo. There
is plenty of good fruit lands held
by honest people, between here
and the head of the lake, and
these with many others will be
made to suffer, if silence is
allowed. Our city organizations
should expose this rocky land
fraud, and they should DO IT
NOW!
There is go id reason to fear
that Kaslo is not the only place
in this province afflicted with
such rascals, and such words of
warning are most timely in the
interests of honest enterprise.
Late Spring In the Kettle Valley
Decidedly this spring is a record breaker in the way of backwardness. Hardly a blossom has
been showing in the orchards
yet, when at this time of year
such fruit trees as cherries,
plums, and pears would be snowy
white. It is probably a blessing
in disgeise, though the disguise
has been rather pronounced. As
far as one can tell now the prospect for a heavy fruit crop
throughout the valley is very
good, and Jack Frost, having
visited us pretty frequently during April, will possibly absent
himself during May.. Meanwhile the river has never been
so low, and prophecies as to high
water are many and conflicting.

son and heir, there were times
when the youthful William's admiring tributes embarrassed his
parent in the family group. "I
had quite an encounter as I came
home tonight," the valorous Mr.
Briggs announced at the tea
table. "Two men, slightly intoxicated, were having a quarrel
on the corner. As usual, there
was no policeman in sight, and
they were in a fair way to knock
each other's brains out when I
stepped between and separated
them." "Weren't you afraid,
father ?'' asked Mrs. Briggs in a
quavering voice. "No, indeed,
why should I be?" inquired Mr.
Briggs, inflating his chest. "I

PURE FICTION.
We would respectfully suggest
that Home of the coasti..dailies
should lie a little more careful in
the classification of their matter,
It not infrequently 'happens that
items which find place on the
front page as important Hews,
under conspicuous scare heads,
shonld appear on the page devoted to fiction. A case iu point
is that of one of the Vancouver
papers which last Wednesday
published what purported to be
an account of the recent liquor
prosecutions in Chilliwack. The
story makes very good reading,
but its one defect is that its most
interesting features are entirely
lacking foundation outside of the
fertile brain of its author. It is
represented that in the case
against Thos. Lay the finding of
Magistrates McGillivray & Coote
gave the accused "the option of
spending sixty days at New
Westminster," instead of paying
the fine of f 141.25, and that Mr.
Lay had accordingly hied himself to the Royal City to enjoy
the freedom of that burg for the
allotted time, thus evading the
payment of the fine. Enquiry
at the office of Court Registrar
Chadsey by the editor of this
paper unfortunately robs this
romance of its charm. The records of the court show that the
judgment concludes with the
words, 'or in default thereof imprisonment for two months at
New Westminster.' and that Mr.
Lay paid his fine at once on the
day of his conviction.
We may add that the findings
of our local courts have usually
been found ti��iit enough to hold
water, and the convicted are
not as a rule allowed to interpret them to suit themselves. If
the ".Smart Alecs" who indulge
in pleasantries nt the expense of
our rural magistrates doubt our
statement, we would suggest
that they come up and experiment with a little outing at law-
breaking in Chilliwhack. If they
don't get all that is coming to
them we will stand for a calling
down.
ject of sympathy in a community which has ever refused to legalize the sale of intoxicants
within its borders, nor did his defense tend to increase this sympathy. Mr. Hummer's own testimony made it abundantly
plain that "The Chilliwack Club,1'
in whose name he professes to do
business, exists solely as a means
to technically cloak the sale of
liquors in contravention of the
people's wishes. No other pur-
nose has apparently been served
iiv the ilnli since its incorporation just eight months ago.
Plainly the Club is a bluff, and
under these circumstances the
presiding justices can scarcely be
said to have been too severe in
their sentence.
But there is another phase of
the situation which ought not to
be igilored. If there were not an
influential and substantial clientele to support such a place,
neither Mr.. Hummer nor anybody else would attempt to
thrust it upon the community.
His position is indefensible, but
is he really worse than those who
sustain him in it? , Both conspire to Break the law and both
are equally guilty. When the
sentiment of thecommunity is as
strong against the secret drinking of whisky as it is against the
secret selling of it, we shall have
taken a long stride toward the
effective wiping out of the drink
curse from chilliwack.

they paid him no rent, that he
was manager, steward and secretary, that all profits of the
business accrued to him and that
the committee of management
had not met since last fall, did
not tend to strengthen his case.
His solicitor put up as good a
legal bluff as the weaknesses of
the cause he was paid to espouse would admit, but failed to
wring a tear from the stonyhearted justices, who proceeded
without hesitancy to had out an
allopathic dose of old-time Chilliwack justice.
Finding the accused guilty,
they assessed him $240 fine, in
addition to the $100 license fee,
and $24.25 costs of the court,
total $364.25, or ten months' imprisonment in default of payment. Mr. Hummer paid the
fine forthwith and announced
through his counsel his intention
of appealing the case to the
higher court.
NEW WESTMINSTER MARKET.
The Westminster market yesterday
showed little change from last week.
The demand in about every instance exceeded the supply. Butter was more
plentiful, while the supply of potatoes
was less than last week. No nay was
offered. The demand for fowl was not
strong, especially as the young chickens
will soon be on the market. No fresh
vegetables are coming in from California.

Letter Prom Justinian Pelly
[We give below a portion of a letter
received from J. Pelly too late for last
week's paper.���Ed.]
Winnipeg, Man., Apr. 28,1907.
Editor Advance :
According to my promise to
let you know how we progress
on our journey, I now forward a
few disjointed notes. . . Our
car would delight President
Roosevelt's heart, not because
we are leading a strenuous life,
but from the fact that there is
no evidence of race suicide
among the occupants. Our car
certainly contains a healty lot of
spirited children. Our train, besides the engine and tender,
consists of 11 cars, and so far
we have lost five hours to this
point Forthe first day or two
we suffered from train sickness
but are feeling well now. It
was cold going through the
Rockies and snow and ice are
now on all sides. Everything
seems to be exceptionally backward here and very little evidence of spring plowing. From
what I can see I would rather
have a few acres in Chilliwack
than a large farm in the N.W.,
but as the C.P.R. proverbially
runs through poor land, one
ought not to judge by this.
Our tourist cars, three, I
think, must be en route to the
car hospital, as something is
radically wrong with two out of
three basins (in the men's lavatory) are out of commission, and
there remains but a very few
tables for use at meal times.
Last night the engineer, doubtless thinking that we might need
a foretaste of the everlasting
tortures of the damned (as expounded by some) turned on too
much steam through the cars,
and though the turkish bath
process may have been beneficial, it was certainly not en-j
joyable.
Chilliwack is ubiquitous. I
was more than pleased to see
my old friend James Mercer
(formerly with J. Denholm) at
Regina, and only regretted that
my conversation with him was
so short. He reported that Mr.
Edmondson had passed through
the day before.
Before leaving, one gentleman handed me a letter asking
me to bring out three young
ladies as suitable life companions
for himself and two other Chil-
liwackers. Now isn't this a
large contract ? Could I satisfy
him with an English girl when
there are eligible Chilliwack girls |
still remaining ? And may the I
supply never run short.
I have all kinds of commissions to execute, from girls to
mousetraps���the sublime to the
ridiculous.

This Medicine is Breathed.
That's why it is sure to cure catarrh.
You see it goes direct to the source of
the disease -its healing vapor repairs
the damage caused by by catarrhal inflammation. "Catarrhozone" always
cures because it goes into those tiny
cells and passages that ordinary remedies can't reach, goes where the
disease actually is. Impossible for
"Catarrhozone'' to fail as any doctor
will tell you. Don't be misled into
thinking there is anything so good as
Catarrhozone - use it and you'll soon
say good-bye to catarrh. 17
A Successful Horseman
never allows his horse to suffer pain.
He always uses Nervaline which is
noted for curing stiffness, rheumatism,
swellings and strains. Nervaline is
just as good inside as outside. For
cramps, colic, and internal pain it's a
perfect marvel. In the good racing
stables Nervaline is always used -because it makes better horses and
smaller veterinary bills. Twenty-five
cents buys a large bottle of Nervaline.

Dr. Shoop, Racine, Wis. Troubles of
of the Stomach, Heart, or Kidneys, are
merely symptoms of a deeper ailment
Don't make the common error of treating the result of your ailment, and not
the cause. Weak stomach-the inside nerves-means Stomach weakness,
always. And the Heart, and Kidneys
as well, have their controlling or inside
nerves. Weaken these nerves, and you
inevitably have weak vital organs. Here
is where Dr. Shoop's Restorative haa
made its fame. No other remedy even
claims to treat the "inside nerves "

eastern ash and was planted by
Mr. Newby thirteen years ago.
The section is seventeen inches
in diameter, the rings thus
measuring nearly two-thirds ot
an inch each. In texture the1
wood seems to be hard and of
the finest quality. The success
of Mr. Newby's experiment has
encouraged him to plant a large
number of these trees. Considering the great value of good nsh
and the demonstrated rapidity
of its growth in this climate,
there would seem to lie a very
inviting field for our farmers in
the culture of these trees. The

in building is giving these enterprising workmen all they can
do, and the ever increasing business will soon warrant an equipment adequate to all demands of
the trade. There would seem to
be no good reason why everything required in the line of
sashes and doors should not be
manufactured in the place. Chilliwack can only attain its highest degree of prosperity by becoming a self-contained community.

carried it to completion.

The government party in
charge of S. J. Yeomans, which
has been engaged for several
months past in constructing the
rock wall to protect the bank
above the Vedder bridge, has
completed its work to the satisfaction of Inspector Sprott.
All who have visited the place
are unanimous in their praise of
the substantial character of the
work. A wall of broken rock,
twenty feet at the base, eight at
the top and rising from the bed
of the river to the top of the
bank, has been constructed from
the south pier of the bridge up
to the rock bluff, a distance of
800 or 1000 feet. The rock
used has all been taken from the
bluff and had to be broken down
by blasting. A tram around the
bank conveyed it to the points
required. The dimensions and
quantity of the boulders are such
that, while one can never exactly predict what the Chilliwack
River may do next, it certainly
looks as though such a barrier

D. McGillivray and other commissioners were  in Vancouver
last week in connection with
matters concerning the   Sumav
Dyking enterprise.    As will be
seen by the official notices which
appear elsewhere in our columns,
the plans "showing the. works
proposed to be done   and the
lands intended to be benefitted."
together with a memorandum by
the chief engineer, approved by
the Chief Commissioner of Lands
and Works, giving an estimate,
of the cost   of   the intended
works, and the completed assessment roll, have all been filed in
the Land Registry office at Westminster.   The amended    plans
and engineer's memorandum will
be submitted to the land owners
of the   district at a meeting
called for June 19, at the Town
Hall,    Upper Sumas, and   the
Court of Revision of the assessment roll will be held on the following day at the same place. If
these meetings issue   satisfactorily there will be nothing,  so
far as the action of the district
is concerned, to    prevent   the
Company from proceeding with
the work of construction, and we
are informed that it is their intention to go ahead with all possible dispatch.
