Grand Forks, July 6. Martin
Burrell has returned to (Irand l-'orks
alter an extended trip through the
Okanagan and Kamloops districts,
• where he addressed many fruitgrowers' meeting*.
"Growers everywhere," said Mr.
Burrell, "are commencing to recognize that the market question is the
paramount one facing those who
are engaged in building up the fruit
industry at the present time. Closely related to this question, and
almost equal in importance, is the
much vexed one of varieties, and on
this matter a very strong interest
was shown."
"I may say in the most emphatic
way that my recent trip confirmed
the belief that 1 have held for some
time past, vi/., that British Columbia is destined to be one ofthe most
important fruit countries on the
continent. The satisfactory tiling
about it all is that the vast majorit.
ofthe growera are going at things
iii a thoroughly business-like way,
and are eager to adopt the best
methods along the various lines of
their work. In regard to tbe methods of cultivation I cannot speak
too highly. With hardly any exceptions the orchards are clean,
thrifty, and excellently planned."
il   must  be  admitted,   come   from'
British   Columbia.     Spitsenbergs,
Kings, Spies and Baldwins acquire
in that favored province a wealth of
size and gtotiotU Coloring that is
nothing short of marvelous. The
plumage of the golden pheasant is
scarcely more gorgeous. One can
easily imagine them taking the lead
in British markets against all competition once an export trade is
developed. In flavor and quality
thev do not quite reach our standard, but they are certainly not
inferior in these regards to the
apples of Oregon and California."
Andrecuk, a Galician, was sentenced at Winnipeg to 20 years'

An Ontarian on B. C. Fruit.
The Hast, like all old communities, learns of the superlative advantages of other districts slowly
and jealously, yet the rays of knowledge are gradually filtering through
the mist of prejudice that has he-
fogged the minds of eastern people
in regard to lhe qualities of the fruit
grown in British Columbia. It is
still urged against our fruit that it
is inferior in quality to that of
Ontario and Nova Scotia, hut even
that error is being dispelled. It is
instructive to read what K. J. Mclntyre says in the Toronto News in
the third of a series of articles on
fruit. His topic is "Canadian Apples in the Old Country." After
treating of Ontario, Nova Scotia,
New York and New England apples
he goes on lo speak of the Western
St.ites and British Columbia.
"The Newtown Pippin is the
highest priced apple lo be found in
British fruit shops. It is a large,
well shaped apple, aid looks very
handsome in its delicate coloring of
pale groan and gold, and its spotless surface glistening like wax.
it grows mainly in California, Oregon and Virginia, in which latter
state it is known as the Albemarle
Pippin. The best samples come
from OragOO. They are wrapped
in paper like oranges, are carefully-
sorted in graded sizes and packed
in boxes. A dealer buying a box
ot NeWtOWnS knows that he will
have BO wastage and all the apples
in the box are true to grade. The
Newtown has a pleasant taste and
a mild, agreeable flavor.
"But the fanciest of fancy apples,

Notes and Comments.
A despatch from Ottawa says
that a bonus of 10 per cent, will
probably be allowed to the entire
public service this year. It will be
based on the increased cost of living
throughout Canada.
—o-
The Persian parliament has been
dissolved by an application ot artillery, the principal statesmen hang*
ed, and laborers set to work to
demolish what remains of the parliament  buildings.      Our   rulers   at
Ottawa have a good  ileal  to  learn
v et in the science of government.
o
Oliver, in moving the second
trading of the bill to amend and
consolidate the Dominion Lands
Act, said the area of land available
for agriculture in the Canadian
Northwest is over 100,000,000acres
to say nothing of the immense
area further north, whose possibilities for agriculture   no   one can yet
e itimate.
o
Britain's naval manoeuvres, recently started in the North Sea,
(aforetime miscalled the German
Ocean), are on a prodigious scale,
the fleet compi ising more than 300
ships manned by (>,S,0!Xt men.     This
is by all odds the greatest fleet ever
assembled.     It makes   I'nc'e Sam's

Taft'* first pronunciamento  since
his nomination, published in the
form of an editorial iii Collier's
Weekly, is not a very impressive
performance. It reads like S faithful platitudinous echo of Roosevelt. There is no douht at .ill that
Taft is an estimable man and a
good administrator, but il can hard-
Iv    be   claimed   that    he   ranks as a
greal man.
o
The Daylight bill,   a   measure  by
which the United Kingdom is to be
lured into starting the day's work
one bom ahead of the time indicated bv the snn, has received the
unqualified approval ol the select
committee of the House oi Commons, and all indications point to
its becoming effective next April.
The bill proposes  to advance  the
clock one hour in April in order to
promote the greater use of daylight
and tO L'ivc the masses one hour
more playtime by light of day. The
irreatest objection to the measure
came from the stock exchange,
which presented the argument that
its business v. ith America would be
dislocated. For this work only two
bOUri is available under the present
conditions, and under the proposed
bill this time would be cut in half.
The committee of the house think
this difficulty can be obviated by
the adherence by those concerned
to their present hours, Greenwich
time to be maintained for scientific
purposes and navigation.
o
The report of the Government
survey of the Montreal, Ottawa
and Georgian Hay canal route was
submitted to Parliament on Saturday. Two alternative routes arc-
proposed, one of which would cost
about $100,000,000 and the Other
about $(),000,000 less. The engineers express the opinion that either
route would be available for traffic
two hundred days in the year. With
a depth of 22 feet and locks of 600
feet, the route would afford a safe
and speedy means of access for
vessels of the largest capacity now
in commission from the Great Lakes
to the St. Lawrence river.
—o—
Vancouver is s city of man)
grievances. One is that through
the greed and the monopolistic position of the C. P. R.   the   fare from
Vancouver   to   Victoria  direct   is
$2.50, while the fare between the
two cities by the roundabout way of
Seattle is $1.50.     Another Standing
source of regret with the coast city-
is that geography and Jim Hill have
made the trade of the Similkameen
tributary to Spokane instead of Vancouver. Then there is the chronic
affliction of tin overdose of Asia,
for which she shows her resentment
at times with considerable violence.
Hut Vancouver's drawbacks, small
and great, can never impede much
the greatness that is thrust upon
her by virtue of her position,
o
Talk about fren/ied finance the
late   amendment   to   the   lead mine
bounties act is worth noting. Under the original act $2,500,000 was
appropriated for bounties for live
years, to be paid on a sliding scale
according to the market price ol
lead. The higher the price the
smaller the bounty, and when the
price reached the high RgUIC of £\6
a ton lhe bo.mty ceased. The mis-
fortune thai overtook the lead miners vv .is that the market price of
their product ruled SO high that thev
were only able to claim about $700,-
000 ot the government's  bounty.
Clearly here wis a case for prompt
and Statesmanlike action, aiul the
finance minister was equal tothe
occasion. His remedy was the
simple one ot raising the market-
price limit that governed the amount
In be paid iu bounty, and to provide that the payments shall not be
limited to half a million a year, provided that the total sum fur the ensuing live years does not exceed
12,300,000. It is to be hoped that
such a reproach to the administration as the retention of a few millions in the public treasury that
mi^rht easily have been got rid of
j with a little care and foresight,  will
not occur again.

"There's not much   use   for unskilled   laborers,   who   don't   know
anything about  mining,   going  up
to  Alaska.     There's   been   lots  of
work there all winter, and  there is
plenty to do there still for men who
are not green at  the job,   but   the
other fellows might   better   stay in
Hritish Columbia."
This is lhe opinion of J. If. Clark,
formerly chief of provincial police
for Manitoba, who has just returned
from   Nome   after  eight   years   of
mining-   and   varied   experience    in
Alaska.
Mr. Clark has been practically all
over the country, and is pretty well
posted on conditions there.
"For men," said he, "who know
anything about mining, Alaska's
the place. I don't know many other
districts in the world where the
laboring- man gets $5 a day, with
the cost of living- very little higher
than in Hritish Columbia. But it's!
hard work, and there's nothing but |
mining going on there.
"The country throughout Alaska
is generally mountainous except
along parts of the coast. There is
little subsoil, and few crops can be
grown. The country is isolated

Trade Would Not Pay.
Captain Gray, of the Hudson's
Ray steamer Pelican, can see no
use for the building of a railway to
a port on Hudson's Hay as an outlet for the grain trade of the northwest. He says that trade through
the bay would never pay. A special steamship would have to be
built which would be no good any
place else. That would mean it
lying idle for eight or nine months
in the year. At all times ofthe
year there are dangerous icebergs
floating down from the north and
carried into the straits by the rush
of the sea, and steamers have to be
strong enough to withstand all
kinds of knocks. Por not more
than three months was navigation
possible. Not until after the middle
of July could any navigator be certain of finding passage at all, and
for weeks after that he would be
met by the rush of heavy icebergs
loosening out from the bay. Hv tin-
em! of September it was time for
vessels to put out to sea or run a
large chance of being closed in for
the winter. The closing off in September, or even in the middle of
October, means that no grain of
one season could get out before
August of the following year, l-lle-
vators and many other appliances
would have to be provided. Boat*
suitable tor the trade would only-
make European ports in a month,
more or less. Captain Grey has

Fruit and Produce Exchange.
L M- Ilag.tr, manager of the
B.C. Fruit and Produce Exchange,
with headquarters at Revelstoke,
has been at the coast this week-
organizing the fruit growers at
Mission. The sixth car of island
produce for the east was sent out
OH Wednesday. Mr. Hagar is
proud of the fact that through the
clearing house organisation in  the
interior better prices have been
realized for fruit this year than
could have been obtained in any
other way. The last shipment of
interior fruit netted $2 per crate for
straw berries, while the Victoria
shipment will realize SI.-S3 to the
grower. The careful method* i'l
shipment and the concessions
granted by the Dominion BxpfsM*
Co..together with the arrangement*
Conceded by the C.P.R., make this
price list possible. Special attention is being given to packing, and
gradually the shippers ot the province are combining to place the fruit
shipments of the country on a basis
which will add materially to the
fame of this province as a producer
of the luxuries that are so much in
demand in the provinces of the
