Two of Them To Be  Built in
The Okanagan,
The erection ot truit   canneries at
Vernon and Kelowna is contemplated by Messrs. Mclsillop ec Co., of
this city, ami arrangements are now
under wav for the establishment of
this new enterprise which a ill prevent to a large extent tha greal
waste of fruit that has been absolutely necessary during past years
through the lack of preserving methods.
A joint stock company is being
formed   with   ample   capital and   as
soon as arrangements with the Ver-
non council can be satisfactorily arranged the building of a cannery at
thai point and another at Kelowna
will proceed. McKiliop It Co.
have been offered a free sile, with
free water and exemption from taxation for ten years at Kelowna, and
it is understood lhat the council of
Vernon are intending to make a
similar offer. Already voluntary
promises of heavy purchases of the
slock of the company have been
given  by  residents  in  and around
VernOtl     and     Kelowna,     and     all
through the Okanagan Valley, for
the new industry is looked upon,
not only as a boon, but an absolute
neces- ity.
Each fall Ions of fruit are available, and the big production has
practicnl'y placed the grower al the
mercy of the wholesaler. The operations of a couple of canneries in
the Okanagan will mitigate this
waste and wi I open up a market
for Hriiish Columbia fruit al all
seasons of lhe   vear.     The   bulk   of
the  fruit will be preserved in  glass

Minister   Says    Arrangements
Are Complete.
All arrangements have been made
bv the provincial government for
the distribution office books among
the pupils of the different schools of
British Columbia.   Hon. Or. Young,
minister of education, states that
orders have heen placed with Gage
& Co., Toronto, and Morang & Co.
of the same city, for the standard
readers and arithmetics necessary.
It is the intention to supply all material used in the lower grades in
reading, arithmetic and waiting.
It was pointed out by the minister that in the introduction of the
new system there was a considerable amount of detail work to he
done, However,    every thing,  he
thought, had been attended to.
Forms had been issued lo the school
superintendents in the different cities
audio those in charge of educational institutions elsewhere, asking
for information which ihey would be
required lo supply. This related,
principally, to the number of pupils
in the various localities, something
the authorities would require for the
Asked whether it was the government's intention to reimburse
those stationery establishments
which had kept hooks that would
be supplied tree in slock, the minister replied in lhe negative. He explained that ibis con d scarcely be
demanded as the merchants had had
u'pwards of nine months notice.
From vv hai he could gather it was
not their custom to keep a heavy
line on hand, buying from term to
term. Under the circumstances they
should be free of these hooks, or
nearly   so,   as the  pronouncement
pf the government's policy in this
regard had been made public in
time to prevent them making the
mistake of laying in a stock lor the
needs of students for the forthcoming year.
The free supplies will be distributed, Hon. Dr. Young Itates, al the

Measures Proved to Be Extensive and Valuable.
Development  on the  outcrop of
coal on tlu- North Fork of Granite
creek, sixteen mites from Princeton,
says the Similkameen star, revealed
a peat  body  of excellent quality.
A gang of about a dozen men have
boon employed for nearly a year   on
the North Fork measures developing and proving what will, no doubt,
be greal producing mines in another
year or so. Three large tunnels
have been driven in as many different sections of the basin, in all of
which there are seams of eoal exposed as much as seventeen feel in
thickness. The now known extent
of the eoal covers many thousand
acres and further   exploratory work
is expected to show a largely increased area. Even it' there be no
further additions   to   the   acreage
there i-. enough eoal insight to produce man)' millions in tonnage.
In the absence of any analysts or
Coking lest for publication  evidence
of the quality of the coal  can  only
be obtained from actual use. In the
blacksmith's forge in has given excellent satisfaction, possessing that
intensity of heat and caking quality
which make it peculiarly adapted
for heavy welding it i^ a real delight tot all the local smithies and
drill shaipeners. Por domestic use
it will not bear favorable comparison with Princeton coal, whieh is
clear, lis. gassy, almost non-smoking and easier on stoic .. Both the
Princeton and North Fork coals are
classified a-- sub-bituminous.
What is believed to constitute the
chief value of the North Fork coel
is  its line coking quality.     Even
with crude coking tests splendid results have been obtained by local

Hobson's Nightmare.
Captain Richmond Pearson Hob-
son, in an alarmist article on the
yellow peril, argues with souk- superficial show of reason that the
Anglo-Japanese alliance is directed
positively and solely againsl the
United States ; his strongest point
being the apparent    lack  of  any
other object on the part   ol    Britain.
The British, he contends, are absolutely responsible tor the Russo-Japanese w:tr, their alliance with the
Japs holding in check Russia's ally,
Prance, aiul thus giving the yellow
men their chance, llie new alliance, "ii cast-iron alliance, offensive and defensive," is not needed
by either party tor defense. Not
againsl Russia, who is prostrate ;
nor against any of the other European powatV, none of whieh is strong
enough to attack either the Mistress
of the Seas or fur distant Japan.
The alliance, therefore, must be
intended tor another scheme of aggression a grand plan of conquest
ot" trade and territory. This terrific
enterprise the gallant Captain pictures thus :
li mn lu- advanced thai ihe Hriiish
would refrain from war with the United
s..iii's on Account of tlu- proximity of
Canada. Thorough examination will lake

Alaska ; to the Japanese ami their Asiatic
allies: the wholi ofthe Pacific slop,., the
Aleutian Islands, Ha* iii, Guam, the Phil-
move down Into Lower California, Mexico,
Central America ami South America.
America's horizon would thus be reduced
lo that of an Inland nation, struggling for
exiatence in ihe presence of surrounding
foes, growing more overpowering as the
wars pass.
Public opinion in Britain, ho admits, would be strongly adverse to
an attack on the Unfad States; hut
then so it was in the war of the Revolution. The ruling class has a
way of molding and diverting public opinion when it suits its purpose,
through its control ofthe press, as it
did in favor of the heathen Turks,
and later the heathen Japs, against
Russia. Ties of race and religion,
while they tire to be reckoned with,
do not mark the lines of conflict.
The moral he draws is that the
United States must become as
strong at sea as Britain and Japan
combined    a most   appalling   task,
Captain Hobson's view ofthe situation contains enough elements ot
truth to give :i certain amount of
verisimilitude to the whole. It is
believed by the foremost thinkers in
the world to be the deliberate purpose of Japan to extend her con-
iptests :is she has already done in
every direction and at every opportunity, without regard to lhe rights
of Other states. Australia is keenly alive to the danger. Hut to imagine that Britain or Canada could be
misled or inveigled into "jining
dogs" with Asia in :i career of conquest is the wildest of hallucinations.

What the New Northern Town
la Like at Present.
Murdock Mclntyre of Phuenix,
who recently returned from Prince
Rupert, {jives the Pioneer some interesting facts about the much
boomed "model city."
The townsite itself is as yet a
bog, the land having a thick mossy
surface, and the landscape of the
embryo city resembles an Indian
village in a marsh. There are no
houses, but hundreds of tents are
scattered about in all directions.
lhe only hotel accommodation is
filled to overflowing. There is a
large new company hotel, but it
will not be opened until the town-
site is thrown open, perhaps some
time this fall. Prices for supplies
are high, and the one or two gen-
eral stores do a big business.
It rained almost continually during his stay, and travel at Prince
Rupert in any direction was invariably via the water route, as almost
any point could be reached in a
canoe. Mr. Mclntyre thinks, however, that when the townsite is
surveyed and drained it will be an
excellent one, hut the mossy nature
ofthe soil holds the water at present.
The first horses seen in the new
town were taken in two weeks ago
by the railway contractors, and so
treacherous is the soil that planks
had to be laid from the boat to the
stable for the horses to walk on.
Bul the outside world knows
more about Prince Rupert than Unpeople living there. There is no
apparent development, and the residents o'teot tu'H arrivals qaiaskally
to learn what the latest news of
their place is or to discover what
they themselves as citizens have
been doing to make their city a
metropolis. The controlling heads
of the "new city of Ihe west" live
far from the Q.T.P. terminus. The
great ideal survey, grand Waldorf
Astoria, great chartered banks, and
forty-story blocks that are pictured
on the Prince Rupert landscape to
outside people, are but dreams iu
the imagination of financial and
realty agents in offices many miles
There is yet no appearance of
practical development to people visiting the town. Kvery morning
scores of boats with survey parties
and prospectors leave for up and
down the Skeena river and its tributaries, but no information can be
elicited from lhem as lo the objects
or results of their searches they
are filed with the Controlling heads
Pram Vancouver to Prince Rupert is a pleasant 50-hours' ride on
the boat, the route being inland the
greater part of lhe May, and only
touches   the   ocean   in two or three
pi.tees.    Ho,its run from Vancouver

every second day, and each is heav-
i y loaded with fortune-seekers
bound for the much-advertised railway terminus. It is estimated that
already over a thousand men are
now looking for openings, iu the
town where there are none, and
with little prospects of any until
townsite lots are opened.
The gateway to the city is rather
an attractive one, and it is proposed
to build a wharf three miles in
length along the water's edge.
There are frequent heavy fogs, however, that may be somewhat of a |
hindrance as a port for ocean liners
entering. It is stated that town-
site lots will be held at $2,000 when
p'actd on the market. ,

Speaking of fancy prices a letter
by a Detroit dealer to the Spokane
Chamber of Commerce, dated March
II, states thai Wenatchee and Cashmere apples are retailing in Detroit
stores at S cents each, oi 'X) cents
per do/en. It would be a great
boon to western apple raisers to
ship their fine fruit to some central
cold storage house in the east to be
distributed from there. Ohio and
Michigan apples, he adds, are of exceedingly inferior quality as compared with western ones.
