come to Olalla. Fruit Men in Parliament.
The current issue of the Canadian
Horticulturist has the   following   tol
say in regard   to   the   candidacy   of
Martin Burrell in Yale-Cariboo:
More horticulturists should be in
Parliament and in our Legislative \
Assemblies. There is need for men
who know something about fruit
growing and kindred pursuits.
The enacting of legislation that has
to do with the progress of our fruit
industry requires the support of
men acquainted with the business.
It is with pleasure, therefore, that
we learn oi lhe nomination of Mr.
Martin Burrell to contest the Yale-
Cariboo constituency in the next
Dominion election. Apart Irom
politics (and we do not know the
party that he supports), Mr. Burrell
is eminently filled for a place in Parliament, no matter to which side oi
politics he belongs. Mis long experience as a fruit grower, the excellent work that he did at the
Dominion Fruit Conference in 1906,
the manner in which he performed
his duties as representative for
Hriiish Columbia at the fruit shows
oi England and the great interest
he takes in the development of the
fruit industry of Canada, make him
highly deserving of the Confidence
of the electors. Furthermore, the
retirement of Mr. E. D. Smith, II,
P., the Conservative member for
South Wentworth, Ontario, and the
tact that Mr. A. A. Wright, M. P.,
the Liberal member for South Renfrew, vvill not be a candidate at the
next election, both of whom have
done valuable work in the interests
of our fruit industry, demand the
election ot one or more men to con
tiniM the work.
C.P.R. Nicola-Midway Line.
During a recent visit to the coast
Sir Thomas Shaughnossy, president
of the Canadian Pacific railway,
predicted that the financial depression which has heen felt during the
past two years is virtually over and
that good times are practically here
once more.
He is also credited with a few remarks in regard to the building of
the Nicola-Midway railroad, which
would indicate that the line will yet
traverse the lower Similkameen.

J. A. BROWN, PuMUmt,
that, the coast constituencies having elected opposition members, if
this constituency wishes to benefit
at their expense, it may do so by
returning the liberal candidate Duncan Ross, to wit.
The Elections.
The elections are over and by the
will of the people as expressed at
the polls Sir Wilfred Laurier is given another five years lease of office.
The returns are still too incomplete
to enable us to give the exact standing oi the parties, but in the general
result Sir Wilfred's majority will be
but slightly reduced, if reduced at
In Hriiish Columbia, the only
province in which there were anv
real issues, the electors have declared in a most emphatic manner
for "belter terms" and the exclusion
ot Asiatics. In the eastern provinces there were no issues, and in
the absence oi such, the advantage
which always rests with the party
in power enabled them to retain the
lar^e majority which they held.
In the best interests of the country it would undoubtedly have been
better had the government's majority been reduced and the opposition
strengthened. A good strong opposition is no less essential to good
government than is an efficient administration. To Sir Wilfred is
allotted the task of guiding Ibe destinies of the country during the next!
five years, and to Mr. Borden the
no less important duty oi watching
and sale-guarding the country's interest from the benches oi the opposition, where during the past years
he has rendered valuable service.
To pretend that the result of the
elections in B. C and throughout
the rest of Canada has no bearing
upon Um situation in Yale-l'arihoo
and other constituencies in this
province where the elections arc deferred, is to ignore a fact.
British Columbia has claims vv liicli
must be insisted upon and Ihe tact
that three members in accord with
those claims have already been returned in the province should stimulate  the electors  oi Vale Cariboo,
Kootenay and Comox-Atlin toclcvl
three more champions of the cause.
The plea that a member of the government vvill he able to secure more
for the COnstltuenC) than one in opposition is tOO sordid to contemplate and is about as honest as it is
honorable. What could be expected of the liberal candidate in Yale-
Cariboo on the questions of "Better
Terms" and "Asiatic Esclusion"
were he returned to Ottawa } He
has definitely stated that he is not
in sympathy with either claim. As
for the rest, the intelligent voter
should, and no doubt vvill, resent
the coarse attempt at bribery which
is liehl out in the veiled   suggestion
On Thursday, Nov. 12th, the electors of Yale-Cariboo vvill have an
Opportunity of expressing their
opinions on deferred elections.
Which is more to be desired by the
residents of the Similkameen; one
more of a majority for Laurier at
Ottawa, or a member whose thorough knowledge of and extensive
experience in the fruit industry
qualify him so suitably to represent
this important constituency in our
legislative chambers ?

Plague of Rabbits.
San Francisco, tal., Oct. 24.—
Jack rabbits are said tO be so numerous in the Antelope valley of California that the ranchmen are in
despair. The animals are becoming
so fierce that they are actually
breaking down the fences around
the adjacent fields and eating crops
down to the roots. Not content
with this, they are swarming into
the desert towns and invading front
yards of the dwellers.
Citizens of Lancaster turned out
recently and made a round-up. They
put a fence across the road between
fences surrounding fields on each
side and in a short time drove in
and killed with clubs 500 jack
