B. C. Government Arrange For
Fruit Exhibit.
Since our last issue Mr. Jelly has
received a letter from Mr. Palmer,
secretary ofthe B.C. Board of Horticulture, stating that it is the intention to have an exhibit of such
B.C. fruits as will he ready, entered
at the Dominion Fair at Calgary,
and inviting this district to join in
the enterprise. The only varieties
of fruit that Mr. Palmer considers
can he shown at such an early date
are cherries, strawberries, currants,
and gooseberries, it being deemed
inadvisable to exhibit anything that
is not perfectly mature. As we
understand it, the government is
meeting all expenses iii connection
with the exhibit, even to paying for
the fruit at market prices ; the executives of the various fruit growers' associations being Only asked
to see to the careful selection and
proper packing of the exhibits.
It is to be sincerely hoped, now
that the way has been made so
easy, that Keremeos will be represented by an   exhibit   that   will   do
the  valley   full  justice.     It   is   Mr.

Notes and Comments.
It is stated that Ihe nonunion
Government's measure for tbe extension of the boundaries of Manitoba is about ready for presentation
to Parliament, and that it will give
Manitoba a somewhat  larger slice
of Keewiitin than has   been hitherto
supposed. It will give the ocean
port of Churchill, the principal port
on the west coast of Hudson Bay,
to Manitoba. The "prairie province" par excellence will hardly
know itself as a maritime province.

A letter dated al Oroville, signed
"The   roan    pack-horse   backers,"
and dealing with the matched race
held here on May 25th, has been received at the Tkimi'kt office. The
letter bristles with such epithets as
"thieves", "crawlishers", and "liars", hut contains nothing in the
amy of argument It concludes :
"I hope you will have man enough
in you to   print this,   being   as you
have already put your foot  in it."
Certainly a person who will write
an abusive anonymous letter OUghl
to be .111 authority on what is "manly," but we tiike the liberty of differing from him. If those who
were interested in that unlucky race
choose to continue to (strangle about
it forever they may do   so    but not
in the columns ot the TRUMPET.

Twj yeara ago when a Socialist
candidate in Toronto polled   a large
vole, running well Into the thousands, Britiah Columbia Socialists
made much of the incident. They
did not understand, of course, that
the Toronto people who voted for
the Socialist candidate on the occasion in ijiicstion, wcic merely vot
ing against the other candidate who
happened to be a prominent Conservative. If there were any doubts
as to how the Socialist party stands
at the present time in Ontario, the
result on Monday hist should make
the matter clear. Iii not a single
instance did any of the do/en or
more Socialist candidates save their
deposit It rather looks, does it
not, as if in Ontario they decline to
consider the Socialist party at all
seriously? Nelson News.
o
Comparatively little interest is
taken in the Republican nomination
convention now in session at Chicago, because the selection ol Talt
as presidential candidate is ii foregone conclusion, the only uncertainty being its to who shall be chosen
as his running mate. It is thought
that his election is also nearly assured though, as Sir John Macdonald once said, the most uncertain things in the world are horse
races and elections. Many things
may happen before November, and
ii trifle sometimes suffices to turn
the w hole current of public opinion.
A single indiscreet remark, the
famous phrase " Rum, Romanism
and Rebellion," coined by an over-
zealous supporter, ruined James ti.
Blaine at a time when his prospects
were  brightest,   and   at   this   early
stage in the campaign Taft haa
already been guilty of one "blaring
indiscretion" in referring in a public
speech to General Grant's one-time
addiction to liquor. While the odds
are greatly on Taft just now, it
would not he wise to go the limit
on him.
o
A matter that deserves the attention of our local orchardists
is the possible injurious influence of
the Cottonwood on fruit plantations.
It has been proved beyond question
that where insect pests have secured a footing, one of their most Impregnable strongholds is the cot*
tonWOOd, which when it sheds its
cotton scatters their larvae far and
wide. In the older districts of
Washington the tree has gained an
evil reputation, and in certain districts the edict has gone forth that
it must be destroyed whether the
owners wish it or not. In this new-
district we iire so far exempt from
pests, but we cannot reasonably expect permanent Immunity. "An
ounce i'l  prevention,   etc.,"   and   if
our growers are properly lore-handed they will not wait for the enemy
to gel within lhe walls before dealing with him. We arc not rich in
deciduous trees in It. C.; in this locality the Cottonwood  is practically
the only one, and we should be
loath to cut it off Irom the landscape. But (here should he no hesitation in doinj,' so if injury threatens from it.     And there   appears to
be no good reason why many other
beautiful and desirable ornamental
trees without iis objectionable qualities should not be naturalised in tbe
dislricl .is easily as the splendid
fruit trees not native here arc introduced. We commend this matter
to the careful attention of the Pruit
Growers' Association.

Shut in by the mountains and only to be
reached by stage, the Valley was not known. Now the Railway is completed to Keremeos and they are busy grading on
to the Coast. When completed this will place the Valley
within 185 miles of Vancouver.
We have laid out a Town Site at Keremeos, and the surrounding land in 3, 5 and 10 acre plots. A
COMPLETE SYSTEM  OF  IRRIGATION  is under con-
e
struction and is expected to be completed this fall.
Now is the time to come and get a piece
of this property while it is going at the present price, for
when the water is running on the ground it will double in
value.
Home-seekers or excursionists from the
East have a choice of routes to Keremeos. The Great Northern Railway, which taps the Prairie Provinces at numerous
points, furnishes a quick, comfortable and convenient means
of reaching the Similkameen at rates the same as to corresponding points on the C.P.R. Or excursionists may come as
far as Midway over the Crow's Nest branch ofthe C.P.R. and
the remaining 90 miles over the Great Northern.

2000 miles, much of it through

more than ever convinced that he
made a wise choice in settling at
