W. H. Bremner, manager of the
British Columbia Manufacturing Co.,
New Westminster, has a new berry
box which promises to be adopted
almost universally in the near future. In the past the great trouble
of strawberry growers was to get
the last row of berries in the box
even, but the new box has a false
top, the berries being put in from
the bottom, and the top row being
laid evenly first, and when it is full,
the bottom is closed and the box
turned over, with the result that an
even top row is now possible. The
new box has been patented iu Canada and the l'nited States.

Here we are in the middle of
October and not a aign of frost yet.
Last year there was a frost sharp
enough lo nip the garden flowers in
the middle of September. The
weather at present is clear and fine,
with delightful zephyrs now and
then which enhance the joy of
living. This is the month of unalloyed pleasure in mere existence.
Gone are the insect pests that mar

now is serene, placid and gentle.
The landscape presents a beautifully

purples ami greens, the dark grecne
of the firs and pines on the more
distant hills looking black in contrast with the lighter green of those
at hand. Autumn in the Similkameen is as near perfection as it is
possible for any season to be anywhere in any part of thc world.
A. Stansfteld unearthed a monster
last week. It was a big potato

was quite a large family of these
giant tubers, and another of them
that was weighed pulled down the

the weight of its big brother.

our genisl merchant and post master,
has often expressed his desire ot
visiting the camps at the summit,
so he extended an invitation to a
number of villagers who had never
been up in the mountains. In
beautiful weather, with a dozen persons on board, five of  them   ladies,
and Jimmy Riordan as guide, the
wagonette started off at 7:.50 a.m.,
returning to Ollala aboul 7-.30 p.m.
The outinj,' was most enjoyable and
every vine vowed thai the trip was
the best ever.
Comrade John   Harrington  gave

Workmen's Compensation.
In the course of a summing up in
the case of John McLean of Vancouver, who has been suing the
Britannia Mining Co. ot Howe
Sound, tor damages on account of
injuries received hy the descent
upon him of one of the company'*
lifts, Chief Justice Hunter, in the
Supreme Court, made a suggestion
regarding compensation to workmen wliich is of importance, coming
from such a high judicial source.
He observed that the Legislature
niighl well consider whether the
pioper solution of the question of
compensation to workmen might
not be to give the workman the
right oi remedy against the state,
the cases to be adjudicated upon
bv a commissioners ol claims, instead of leaving him, as at present,
to throw his money away in useless
costs Speaking for himself, he!
did not see .vhy the slate could not
make good physical injury. As (Inlaw stood at present, actions were
expensive, and some cases deserving
of just compensation were defeated
simply bv reason ofthe poverty of
the litigant.
The Chief Justice's main reason
for suggesting thai the state assume
liability appears to be, nol that the
responsibility is misplaced at present
but that the working of lhe law
defeats the real ends of justice.
But is there any reason in logic or
COmmOD sense why his suggested
remedy oi referring claims to a
commissioner of claims should not
be adopted without abolishing employers' liability? Why should
one of the changes be dependent Ofl
the Other? If a commissioner .it
claims can be depended on to render
justice as between claimant and
government, he can surely be just
as well depended on l,n justice as
between claimant and  employer.
And though as a general principle
it is a proper function  "f  govern-
ment to pension the wounded in the
battle of industry, yet then- .ue
good reasons both of justice
and    expediency   lor   retaining   the
present principle of employers' liability, The risks of a particular
industry, and the losses arising
from those risks, are properly a
charge against the industry, and as
such should he taken into account
in its costs of production. If they
aie recognized as a charge it will
be the constant object of good
management to reduce them to a
minimum. Iftheyarenot so rec-
Ognlsad,   tho   tendency   will   be   to
give them less attention.
The remarks oi the Chief Justice,
while they are applied only to a
particular class of litigation, really
admit the whole case for law
reform. The difficulties of the injured workman suing for damages
are precisely the same difficulties as
those of any other suitor at the bar
of the law. If be encounters a sufficiently stubborn and resourceful
opponent, the most he can hope for
is the barren victory of a decision
a victory which is for all practical
purposes a defeat. Very often the
outcome is worse than that, and a
long purse wins against a just
cause. This condition of affairs is
everywhere submitted to as a necessary evil chiefly because lawyers
say it is necessary; lawyers say il is
necessary chiefly because il is to
their interest to say so. Once in a
while one of their lets ihe cat out of
the bag, as the Chief Justice did in
the remarks alluded to; but as a
rule they are perfectly sure that
civilisation would go to smash were
it not for the majestic fabric of
rules, precedents, delays, quibbles,
verbosity, and costs, costs, costs,
that go to make up our svstem of
law. At some distant day the
people may take it into their long-
suffering heads to choose others
than lawyers as their law-makers,
and give them a mandate to reform
the system.

Everybody is asking, will there
be an election this fall ? Man)
people and a few newspapers profess to have "authentic information"
one way or the olher. or, if thev do
not go that far, point confidently to
"infallible   signs" of    an   appro.i, h-
ing struggle.      The  probability  is
that no one outside the inner circle
ofthe administration knows whether ihere will be an election or not.
It is   likely   enough   even   lhat    the
government itself has not fnflj decided on its course. The most definite Statement vet made on the
subject is this by the I'remier:
"The feeling seems to be that iu
tlie event of agreements being arrived at between the gov 'eminent
and Mat ken/ie and Mann l> I -ie
the end of the year tor extension  ol
the Canadian Northern railwaj Into
British Columbia, there should be
a dissolution of the House so that
upon the lounliv expressing its approval no ilelav need occur in st.ut-
lag the dust flving."
lhe  Premier's statement,  while
definite  enough as far as it goes, is
non-committal,    \ lew davs >_ftet u
is made, the Victoria Colonist,
which is supposed to ba an courant
with affairs at the capital, has this
to say:
" I here is no MMirMM e that
Hon. Mr. McBride and his ,..|-
IsafUSS will go to the country this
year. No official or semi-official
announcement has been made to
lhat effect. Iheielore the talk
heard iu different quarters, while
il mav have some foundation on the
principle that 'where there's smoke
then is lire,' is based entirely on
conjecture."

The Best Time to Secure a Lot is NOW
Before our great irrigation system was completed and before the railway was completed, many
settlers located on our fruit lands in the assurance that these necessary works were soon to be
carried out.
Now the works have been carried out, the water
courses have been laid, the railway runs through the
centre of the settlement, and the remainder of our
lands are still open on the same terms. The very-
best time for the fruit grower to settle at Keremeos
is right now.
DON'T DELAY—The time is short during
which you can get in on the ground flour and secure
a tract of virgin land in the heart of one of the very
choicest fruit-growing districts of the province.
Before another year passes it is altogether likely
that every foot of it will be taken up.
Our fruit lands are free from timber and rock
and are ready for planting. No mountain side, but
in the centre of a beautiful valley and a prosperous
settlement.
The  properties   are   heing   offered   in   1,  3,  5 and   10  acre   Blocks  with   a   well   laid   out townsite
now doing an active business.
Our terms are liberal.    One-third cash.     Balance in 3 payments at 7 per cent.
Acreage properties are from $175 to $300 an acre.    Town lots $100, $200 and $300.

Pity the Poor Tenderfoot.
In the course of a remarkable editorial at tide, the object of which is
to restrain the Irish people from emigrating to Canada, Freeman's
Journal says:
"The reason Canada requires immigrants is that it must get inhahi-
tants at any cost in suffering to
newcomers. When wolves howl
round co why res there is need of foreign thousands if only to act as a
sort of vermin-killers. Many of the
newcomers will go mad with the desperation of loneliness and the hitter
hardships of life; many will fall in
utter misery hy the wayside; some
will live through it all. The vermin-
killing will one day all he done and
the dreary, empty spaces will hegin
to he really habitable hy a normal
human heing.
"This is Canada's need: Pirst,
hands of victims romantically called
pioneers; then afterward on Ihe ruins
of these, happier throngs who will
reap in joy where others sowed in
sorrow."
Freeman'! Journal also remarks
that the free farms are situated in a
dreary neighborhood of nature's
wildest freaks.
Residents   ot  South Vancouver
protest against Hindoos heing allowed to build funeral pyres and
burn their corpses al the cemetery.
They object to the odor of burning
flesh.
A Forecast.
Here is lhe Revelstoke Herald's
horoscope of the   political   hea\cns:
"Circat changes are in contemplation in the political world. One
of the main objecte of Hon. G. E.
Foster's visit to the west is to pave
the way for a change of the leadership of the Dominion Conservative
party. The new leader in view is
Premier McBride. Now that a provincial election is coming on in Hritish CohimMa is a favorable opportunity for the change. The idea is
lli.it Mr. McBride will not he a candidate in the coming provincial
elections, hut that he will resign the
Premiership, recommending Hon.
\V. J. Bowser, the Attorncy-licncr-
al, as his successor. The Provincial Conservative party will then go
to the country under Mr. Bowser's
leadership. Then a way is to he
Round lor Hon. R. McBride entering
lcilei.il politics. llie plan now under consideration is that Mr. Barnard, M. P. for Victoria, shall resign his seat in the Commons, and
lli.it Mr. McBride shall he the Conservative candidate for the hye-elec-
tion in the belief that he can easily
carry Victoria. The next move on
the chessboard, presuming the plan
carries so far, will be a caucus of
lhe representatives of fhe Dominion
Conservative party at which Mr.
Borden will lendei his resignation
aa leader and Mr. McBride will be
chosen in his stead.      The Conserva
tive parly will then go to the country next Dominion election under
the leadership of Mr. McBride."
To Meet in 1910
Victoria has been selected for the
general conference of the Methodist
church, to be held in August or
September of next year. Halifax
and London were also considered
as places of meeting, but the choice
fell to Victoria, though it has been
estimated that the additional cost
by the selection of a point so far
west will he $10,000.
The general conference is the legislative body of the Methodist
church of Canada and it is anticipated that much business of more
than ordinary importance will be
transacted ncM year, as the altitude
ofthe church to the question of denominational union will be defined.
GrMt progress lias been made in
the movement for the union   of  the
Methodist, Congregational and
Preabyterlan churches, and it is
likely thai a further advaiue will
mark the proceedings in Victoria in
PM0.
The conference is held once in
every four years. Present at the
deliberations ofthe body are fraternal delegates from other parts of
the world notably from (ireat
Britain, the l'nited States and tin-
Antipodes.

The bounty on horned owls, $2.00
a head, is the source of considerable
revenue to the young nimrods of
ihis district. Since May the number received at the Kairview office
is about one hundred. Hilly Dal-
rymple at an early hour one morning found that one of these owls
had breakfasted 00 one of his choice
chickens and with a fully satisfied
look was resting on the top of a
tree close to his house. Hill's aim
was good and the owl bit the dust,
the bounty paid for the chicken, and
revenge is sweet.

Big Yield of Apples.
Hritish Columbia is beginning to
show si^ns of successful competition
with eastern Canada and American
markets, for the supply of fruit for
Manitoba and the west. K. R.
Scott, manager of the Macpherson
Fruit company, says: "We are
now drawing our supply ofD'AnjOU
pears from Hritish Columbia, and
have several cars in transit. The
ideas of growers respecting prices
are, however, high this year. We
have lo pay Hritish Columbia growers $1.60 a box more than vve had
to pay two years ago. Nevertheless we have a great demand for
these pears in the Winnipeg market, and people seem to want them."
This is something about a big
yield apples in the Wenatchee valley, in central Washington, where
L W. Smith has an acre of orchard
which will net $2,000 this season.
The trees, nine years old, are of the
Winesap variety. His holding is
confined to four acres of bearing
noes, which yielded |3,J6S worth
ol fruit in 1908, and $3,300 worth
the previous season. Me has 120
trees bearing Wincsaps, which vvill
yield from 12 to 15 boxes of 50
pounds each; 44 trees of Arkansas
Hlacks, averaging   12   boxes   each;
in  Mammoth Black Tvrigs, each
cropping from 10 to 12 boxes and
K) l iocs bearing Ben Davis apples,
which will yield not less than live
boxes each. There are numerous
small orchards in the same valley
which made relatively good showings, but none so good as the Smith
tract Several orchardists in the
Yakima valley also report exceptionally large yields, but on the
whole the crop in Washington, and
in fact, the north-west, is short,
though the apples are of excellent
color and si/e, thus making up the
losses by increased   market   values.

R. H. CARMICHAEL, Acting Manager. EVOLUTION OF
THE APPLE
Vicissitudes ofthe King of Fruits
in North America
Orchardisls all over the continent will
be interested in the research work just
completed by Ren H. Rice, secrel.iry-
managor ofthe National Apple show, inc.,
.showing that the so-called "wild apple"
OT "wild crab," from vvhieli many of the
present standard commercial varieties
have sprung, were wayward deseendanis
of trees originally Imported from Kngland
and other foreign countries in the IKth
centurv.
Mr. Riee has compiled data, tracing the
seeds from their habitat in foreign soils lo
these shores, also the wandering Wt lhe
trees from the path of civilization, reverting to savagery and then brought to the
present day perfeetion, as to color, size
and flavor, .after years of toil and study.
Of the contributory factors he says thai
the process of cultivation was not of sufficiently long duration, nor was it complete, and, as a consequence, after a few
years' neglei-t, it was natural for the fruit
to turn to its normal slate.
The appended excerpts are from Mr.
Rice's manuseripC
"During revolutionary times and the days
ofthe Indian wars, when thousands of
men were called Io bear arms, manv farms
were pel -milted lo run lo waste and weeds.
In numerous instances the isolated homesteads and even settlements were attacked
and destroyed, the occupants slain, the
buildings sacked and burned and the
stock scattered when not siolen. Thus a
few years completed Ihe Iransition from
pioneer husbandly to utter ruin and chaos.
"Frequently tbeaa atttmtnantt were ths
CROP MAS KWIN111.K1I.
Mr. Rice shows In bis compilation of
data, bearing on the growing of commer-
eial apples, that the industry has not kept
pace with the increase in population in the
United States and Canada, from the faet
that lhe entire crop this year, estimated at
2K,0(X>,000 barrels, is many barrels less
than the production in 1H%, when growers in Ihe l'nited States harvested 67,070-
000. Twenty-seven million barrels of apples were harvested in the l'nited States
last year.
The explanation of this condition lies
scattered over the broad aeres in tlie New
Kngland, eastern and middle-western
stales, where apple orchards, never regarded as serious features of the farms,
have fallen easy prey to neglect and resultant pests. In many instances the
lues have been felled lo supply manufacturers with materials, while iu olher localities entire orchards have been chopped out to afford room for more profitable
crops.
THH WKST AN Ai'Pl.K   COI NTRY.
As there is BO substitute for the apple
this would mean nothing less than a lani-
ine were it not for the orchards in the
wesi, where an Immense territory has been
dedicated lo fruit production, and with
the millions of trees planted annually will
make this the orchard country of the
worki.
"The lands already planted in Washington, Idaho, Montana and the province of
Hritish Columbia should produce a crop
of apples in l9ISeejaal IO the production
ofthe l'nited Stales In IK%," said Mr.
Rice in diseussing the outlook, "and at
that there will never he SS over-production. From lhat time on, with orchards in

"Wild Apples," so called, had   a   peculiar charm of their own, largely because of
their spii \    laser,     Though   barred   from
the tables of gentle folk and Ihe  marts   of
Hade, I hey were sought by fully  as   inler-
esling il   less   —acting   consumers.     The |
blanketed reds   used   lhem   as   staph s   ol
diet aud the   pioneers   of  tbe   hai kuootls
and    lhe    frontiersmen   often   stepped  ofl'j

ami    bear,   raccoon   and   poreupine    also
knew   lhem   as   an   excellent   preparation
for the long seep of winter.
"When lhe yeomen   relurned   from   llie
wars lo resume the Cultivation of llie   soil, |
many farmers set themselves lo   ledonies-
licallng Ihe apple and In Ihis   entered   the
prot-ess of selection and rejection as prac*

bolanlsls ol Ihe present day. Trees were
Cleared of lhe underbrush and pruned, and
si-ions were developed and pruned III turn,
until afler much patient toil, as long in
duration as the period of retrogression
had been, the wild fruit once again became thc apple of civili/ition, and with
this came ils development as a commercial prOdttCt, which is destined so fai as
the northwestern slalesand provinces are
concerned, lo rank with lhe wheat industry  in a veiv  few years."
"Young man," said a rich and pompous
old genllom.nl, "I was nol always thus, I
did not always ride In a motor car of my
own. When I first started in life, I had to
walk."
"YOS were lucky," rejoined the young
man. "When I first started I had to
crawl. It took me a long lime lo learn to
walk."

they should not bear all the additional expense of making a

would be tor the benefit of the
