It is expected that within the
next two weeks the 130 pupils in
the four departments of the Central school will be in their new
quarters in the fine two storey
building just nearing completion.
Contractor Peebles is fast pushing his part of the work to a
finish and, thanks to the generosity of the Victoria Government Chilliwack will soon have
one of the best equipped and
most thoroughly up-to-date school
buildings in the Province.' The
new building stands on the olid
completed and rtjll do credit to
the builder ami to the town.
The total outlay will be in the
neighborhood of .$6,000 including
furnishings. The gratitude of
the community is due to A. L.
Coote, the untiring secretary of
the School Bo$*d,. who has
watched the progress of the
work from its inception and

street, near the west side of the
town and faces to the south.    It
contains four rooms 27 ft. x 36
ft. with large halls on both floors
and has 14 foot ceilings throughout.   The windows are all on one
side in each room and the seats
so placed that the light will fall
over the left shoulders of the pupils.   The seats and desks are of
the best quality, and are manufactured by the C. O. and School
Furniture Co. of Preston, Ont
Over fifty sittings are provided
lor each room and these can be
easily increased to sixty without
crowding.   Good blackboards run
the full length of both front and
back walls of each room.    All
walls and ceilings are covered
with wood fibre gypsum plaster.
The building will be heated with
stoves and ventilation will be
supplied by the  windows  and
registers in the walls connecting
with an air shaft running to the
roof.   Each hall is provided with
a porcelain lined wash basin,
supplied with cold water. A fire
gong will be placed in the upper
hall.   The ground floor will be
occupied by Principal Calvert's
classes and the primary department under Miss Marsden, while
the intermediates will be placed
up stairs in charge of Mr. Broe
andMiss Bradley.
Immediately, back of toe new
building at the rear of the
grounds a cement cesspool ten
feet square and ten feet deep is
being constructed, which will
receive the sewerage from the

which will stand near by. The
latter will be supplied.with self-

Fruit Growers Meeting.
Address by Inspector Cunningham
A fair representation   of the
Fruit Growers' Association and
the   Farmers'    Exchange    assembled in the Court House on
Wednesday evening for the purpose of meeting Thos. Cunningham, Provincial Fruit Pest Inspector, who has been  in the
Valley for some days on official
business.  The meeting was presided over by Jas. Arnould and C.
W. Webb acted as secretary.   In
addressing the meeting* Mr. Cunningham remarked that the time
was when Chilliwack was known
as producing the choicest fruit in
the Province.   A change, however, had taken   place.   Land
values had greatly advanced and
would continue  to do so, but
many settlers from the east were
disappointed at  the prevailing
conditions of the fruit conditions
here.   Fully ninety per cent, of
the orchards in the Valley had
been neglected.   Many had never
been pruned or sprayed since they
were planted.   Indeed there were
not half a dozen spraying outfits
in Chilliwack.    One local hardware dealer had told him that
he had only sold one such outfit
in the last three years.    Under
these conditions it is useless to
expect success in fruit culture.
The time is upon us when all
should feel in honor bound to
make Chilliwack again the .foremost fruit growing  section of
British  Columbia.    He himself
felt   strong   responsibility   for
present  conditions   here.    But
there had been several good reasons why the regulations had
hot hitherto been stringently enforced.   Times had been liard;
prices had been low and the" Government had not had the funds
With which to' do the necessary
work.   Things are now changed,
and while the Government' does,
not wish to coerce anybody, yet
it must do   everything in its
power*to place the fruit industry
possible was being done to impart to everybody the information necessary about spraying,
etc., and the speaker invited inquiry from those present regarding any points upon which
information was desired. Our
space limits forbid a report of
the interesting discussion which
followed. An earnest spirit pervaded the meeting, and the following resolution moved by G.
McNaught and seconded by A. J.
Street, was unanimously passed:
Resolved that this meeting heartily endorses the forward movement in orchard cleansing." and
we pledge ourselves individually
and' collectively to ' co-operate
with the Provincial Inspector of
Fruit Pests in the necessary duty
and thus restore this Valley to
its former proud position as one
of the leading fruit growing centres of British Columbia.
A hearty vote of thanks to Inspector Cunningham and a happy
.response brought to. .a close a
very profitable evening.

Editor Fraser Advance:���You
were present at the fruitgrowers'
meeting last night and heard the
discussion on the spraying mixtures and the difficulty of obtaining a reliable article. I intimated then that arrangements might
be made to have the lime-sulphur-
salt solution made in Chilliwack.
I approached Mr. Wm. Knight on
the matter this morning and with
the public spirit which he'has always manifested he kindly consented to undertake the cooking,
by steam of this most valuable of
all spraying mixtures.
; I leave, for Vancouver to-day
and shall send up a supply of
sublimated sulphur and lime so
that Mr.' Knight may begin operations at once.
As stated last night no man in
British Columbia can pronounce
a safe opinion on the merits of
the imported article. It may be
good and reliable or it may be the
reverse, but we do know that
when; the home-made article
leaves Mr. Knight's hands it can
be used with the utmost confidence and at the lowest cost.
I thank you for the kindly interest which you have taken in
this forward movement in orchard cleansing. You have taken
a comprehensive view of the situation which affects not only
every man who has a dollar in-
i vested in Chilliwack but the entire Province as well.
If Chilliwack is to take its proper place in up-to-date agriculture and horticulture every man
must do his duty cheerfully and
thoroughly. There is no better
soil in America than that of the
Chilliwack valley. The climate
is the best by far in this great
Dominion. If \*e do not make
the most of these splendid advantages and opportunities we
shall be brought to strict account
at some period of our existance.
There is no escape from this.
Faithfully yours,
Thomas Cunningham.

The prospectus states that "The

required for thegeneral purposes
of the company to meet the
necessities of its constantly increasing business and more particularly in connection with increasing the capacity of the hydraulic plant at Lake Buntzen
and with the construction and
equipment of further railways

to remove any doubt in the public mind as to .the Company's
bona fide intent in connection
with the Chilliwack-Westminster
line. The names of F. S. Barnard, Hon. R. Gr. Tatlow and W.

The first step in the suit of
Mrs. Minnie McKenzie against

Supreme Court Chambers, Vancouver, before Chief Justice Hunter on Wednesday last. C. W.
Craig appeared for Mrs. McKenzie and secured a grant of his
application for leave to interrogate the Reeve before the case
comes to trial. II. L. Reid appeared for the Municipality. If
this suit is successful it is likely
to mean a prettty snug bill for
the Corporation. The amount
asked is, we understand, $50,000.

Mr. Bowman refers, was circulated:
"That your petitioners, realizing the immanent danger threatening the Chilliwack and Sumas
valleys from the freshets of the
Chilliwack or Vedder River and
the enormous damage which
would result if the river were to
leave its present channel, request
your Honourable House to make
a sufficient appropriation to protect said lands from such inundation."
A similar petition was signed
by the settlers of Lower Sumas
and both petitions were presented to the Executiveiimmediately
upon its assumption of office.
This petition was shown to Mr.
Street, one of the Dyking Com
missioners, who said,  "This is
just what we want."
A counter petition was, however, got up on the Sumas side
asking, I am informed, that the
work at present being done on
the river by the Government be
stopped until the whole question
could be gone into again, and to
the surprise of our committee the
Dyking Commissioners appeared
in Victoria and asked the Executive for a grant of $240,000 on a
new plan to divert the water
down the Luck-a-kuck, which
has never been submitted to the
people for their vote and approval as necessitated under the Bill
and which plan, if ever seriously
entertained will be fought by
nearly all the paople in Lower
Sumas on the Luck-a-kuck and
old Chilliwack river beds and
those in the Chilliwack central
prairie. Under the circumstances
if the House fails to understand
what the Sumas people want it
will not be a matter of surprise.
The purport of Mr. Bowman's
letter is that the river should be
left uncontrolled, a source of
danger to the whole settled and
improved country as it is at
present, in the hope that it might
run elsewhere and so render the
dyking and reclaiming of the
wild land at Sumas easier, and he
actually has the stupidity to appeal to the public for sympathy
in his behalf.

Another interesting, relic of
George Stephenson, the inventor

built over the river Tees, near
Thornaby, for the Stockton and
Darlington Railroed in 1841, and
which after the absorption of
this pioneer road by the North-
Eastern trunk railroad was retained, is now to be removed,
owing to the exigencies of heav-
ier and greater traffic. The old
structure is built up of cast-iron
girders strengthened by wrought
iron tension straps, and earned
by masonary piers which rest on
piled fonndations at about low
water level. The new bridge.,is
to be of the three girder type
with rolled steel joists and heavy
sectional steel work, designed by
Mr. W. J. Cudworth, the chief
engineer to the southern division
of the North-Eastern Railrood.���

Pulillc Meeting Address "d by Rev"
W -M. Rochester.
Although the notice was short
a fair audience greeted Rev. W.
M. Rochester, Western Secretary
of the Lord's Day Alliance of
Canada, last Sunday afternoon in
the Presbyterian Church. The
chair was occupied by Malcolm
McSween, who briefly introduced
the speaker. In rising Mr. Rochester remarked that he had not
expected to be here so soon again,
but the attitude of the Attorney-
General at Victoria, acting-under
the advice.of. the .Government,
had rendered necessary his return at this time. Without wasting much time in preliminaries
Mr; Rochester addressed himself
to the matter inland. ';
In connection With this new
Lord's Day Act there had. been
a great outcry for liberty and
especially for British liberty.
The speaker would; remind' his
hearers of the universality of
law. It is necessary- in every
realm and we find it everywhere.
There is a right and a wrong
with respect, to everything, these
bouies which we live in, this
building which we occupy, the
fields we till and society at large.
We are encompassed by law and
we can't escape it. Obey it and
all is well with us;,disobey it and
we experience the, contrary.
The wrecks which have recently
occurred on our coast were due
to the culpability of somebody.
The ships were not built with a
due regard for the strain and
stress of wind and wave which
they were to endure, and so did
not survive the violence and
shock of the storm. So will it be
with our ship of state if it does
not obey law. Therefore, when
we talk about liberty,���British
liberty, ���let us remember that we
could not have had British liberty
without British law. When we
come to deal with this Sabbath
question we are dealing with a
law���not a church law nor a Bible
law simply���but a law written in
the very constitution of things.
This sputtering and spluttering
about a religious question and
coercion is aside from the mark.
The Sabbath is not a religious institution but a human institution
given to the race. Experience
had amply demonstrated its recognition essential to man's best
interests and highest good. The
present Act has hot to do with
religion, but with work'.
Furthermore, this law is not a
new thing, but it comes from a
new quarter. Instead of getting
it from the Provinces as heretofore, we are getting it from the
Another reason why so many
are excited over the Act in this
Province is because they feel that
their particular views are being
interfered with, and their business and industrial interests endangered. In point of fact British Columbia had received generous consideration in the exceptions which the Act makes. Large
liberties are allowed in the conduct of all necessary work. Those
who wish may have their porridge
on Sunday mornings, so far as
the milk man is concerned. For
four months while this Act was
before the House every industry
had an opportunity to be represented at Ottawa. Now the Act
has become law and the law is in
force. The Attorney - General
cannot withhold his consent except in cases where the complaint
is too trivial to warrant prosecution. It has been unauthorita-
tively stated that he has decided
to give his consent in. all cases.
Mr. Rochester hoped that he
would do s% and thus the law be.
given a fair trial. There are certain sections, of this Province
which* need to:be toned "up, and
the people who are coming in
taught how good a country this
is to live. in.
In conclusion Mr. Rochester
pointed.out that those who are
against the enforcement of this
Act are making themselves heard.
The Premier has been deluged
with letters and importuned by
delegations. Let us speak out.
Let something be done. The
speaker hoped that just as Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta
have said, "This is our law" so
British Columbia will say, "This
is our law." ��� v    y.-C&f
Mr. Rochester is- a pleasing
Speaker; presenting hjs theme in
a clear,, concise and convincing
manner! and was '^listened
to with marked.' it >eviden*
ces of interest throughout;' At the
close of his address an opportunity was given-ior. the.signing of
a petition-to the Attorney-General, not toobstruct the enforcement of the law.''""   '

The Airship Hat.
Paris is showing a hat of the
toque order, which is known as
the airship. This hat takes its
name from its likeness in shape
to an airship. It is made up in
soft straw braid, and will be one
of the season's extreme novelties.
Many sailor hats will also be
worn all through the spring and
summer. A very fashionable
sailor is a rather large shape with
the brim wider on one side and at
the back than on the other.
In regard to straws, leghorn
not only in its natural Color, but
dyed in such shades as sage
green, old rose, blue and apricot,
will be much used. A mossy
straw known as caveliri will be
made up in many toques, mushrooms, and turbans. Smooth, fine
chip hate will be fashionable, and
also those of milan straw. Neapolitan will be used all through
the season, cleverly, combined
with-a firm straw.���Grace Margaret Gould in .Woman's Home

Happy Kamloops Mart Bears Away
One of Chilliwack's  ralr
An event of more than usual
interest to the citizens of Chilliwack took place on Wednesday,
March 27th, at twelve o'clock
noon, when Miss Bella Mitchell
Knight, youngest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Knight, Sr.,
of Chilliwack, was united in the
holy bonds of matrimony to Thos.
R. M. Porter, of Kamloops.
The ceremony was performed
in the Baptist Church, Rev. A.
M. Gazley officiating. The bride
was given away by her father.
She was charmingly attired in
a white all-over lace robe over
white duchesse silk, with veil
and wreath of orange blossoms,
and carried a bouquet of white
carnations. She was attended by
Miss Wilena McKenzie, who was
attired in cream silk crepe de
poplin with white picture hat,
trimmed with pink roses and carried a bouquet of pink carnations.
Mr. A. B. Hogg, of Kamloops,
assisted the groom.
The bridal party entered the
church to the strains of a "Wedding March" played by Miss
Ruby Henderson.'
A number of relatives and
f riends of the bride were present
to witness the ceremony. After
the ceremony was over the bridal
party and guests met at the home
of the bride's parents, where a
sumptuous repast had been prepared.
Mr. and Mrs. Porter left in the
afternoon and are spending their
honeymoon at the Coast, after
which they will take up their residence at Kamloops. The bride
was the recipient of many beautiful presents.
The Advance extends its best
wishes to the happy couple for a
long and prosperous voyage together.
J. T. Wilkinson is being welcomed by
his many friends on his return to Chilliwack this week after an absence of
several months, during which he has
winged his flight over a goodly portion
of Eastern Canada and the United
States, visited the West Indies and
some points in South America and inspected the Panama canal from Colon
tp-Panama. ��� With .true western instinct, to which was added perchance a'
dash of the sentimental, Mr. Wilkinson
walked to the beach at the latter place
and dipped his hands in the cooling
waves of the great Pacific. To his
poetic sense it was next thing to getting home, although over 4000 miles of
coast line lay between his feet and Vancouver. But as ever, Mr. Wilkinson
declares that he has yet to see a more
delightful spot than Chilliwack. When
once the projected tramline is in operation it will be, in his estimation, without a peer as a place of residence.

of ^ A. Wells, was the best judge in ,
