Twice within a week Magistrates
Coleman and Richter have been called upon to hear charges against
Siwashes of looking upon the rye
when it is red. Last Thursday one
culprit was brought up, and on Saturday three more. They were from
the reserve near Hedley, but were
brought down here because it was
necessary to have two justices on
the bench. All four were found
guilty and sentenced to pay a fine
of $50 each and costs, being given
•Odays to round up their cayuses and
raise Ihe collateral. The man who
supplied them with the booze has
not been located. The magistrates'
reason   for imposing such a severe
ever, that according to the terms of
the law the act of driving another's
cattle could be held to constitute a
theft, and that the defendant took a
serious risk in acting as he did.
The driving of another's cattle for
the purpose of rounding up one's
own was, it was held, although
customary, only permissible in the
presence of or with the sanction of
the owner of the first lot. A fine
of $1 and costs was imposed.

Last Friday the adjourned case
against M. C. McAuley came up

i and Richter. The charge, laid by
Frank Surprise, was that the defendant had attempted to lift some

that he gave no satisfactory explanation   of  his  action.     For the  de
fense, Mac stated that he was driving the cattle only to gather in
some of his own that were hard to
get; and this being confirmed by
Mr. Cawston's evidence that Mac-
was acting under   his   instructions,

As will be seen by advertisement
in another column, the Department
of Lands and Works is again advertising for tenders to build the
school-hous- here, none of the original tenders being acceptable.

Last week it was announced that
a teacher had been engaged for the
Keremeos school, and so it was
thought, but later the applicant
wrote saying that she had accepted
another school. The trustees are
now considering a fresh bunch of
applications.
In the B.C. Gazette the following
appointments are announced: Hugh
Hunter, Ksq., of Princeton, to be a

Italian, has leased from Mr. Barcelo the store formerly occupied by
Thomas & Barcelo, and wiil open a
fruit and canfectionery business
next week, his stock comprising
fruit, confectionery, tobacco, cigars
and soft drinks. There will also be
a billiard room in connection.
K. T. Kingslev has been chosen
by the Socialists of Vancouver as
their candidate in the forthcoming
elections. The name of Dr. VV. J.
Curry, Port Kssington, was mentioned, but Kingslev got the large
majority of votes. The Socialists
state that they have a large campaign fund, and will make a good
fight.
A. M. Clark and C. Brock of
Iowa, who have heen doing some
development work on the mining
claims opposite the ranch of Win.
Manery, have struck ore in large
quantities at the base of the hill below the claims. An assay is being
made and if it turns out to be as
rich as expected, Mr. Manery says
shipment of ore cm be commenced
any time.
From the Princeton Star : The
times are fairly good in Penticton,
and Keremeos is now passing
through the primary stages ot a far
reaching revolutionary movement
affecting the social and agricultural
conditions in that prolific section.
Newcomers with money and new-
ideas are peopling all the Penticton-
Kercmeos country, bruit and beef
are the spine and staples of the
district.
With regard to Ihe suggestion
made in last week's Tkimpkt, that
the road over the hill above the upper town should he diverted around
the hill, Supervisor Deardorff states
that he has looked into the matter,
and finds that the property owners
whose lands would be involved are
very unwilling that any change
should be made. No doubt the improvement will have to be carried
out some time, but it is not thought
to be urgent enough to call for immediate action. Warns Against Frost.
Scientific fruit raising has been
deliberately shoved into a new era
by the recent installation of the
automatic electric frost foreteller in
the larger orchards of the irrigated
belt in Washington. New sets
of agricultural and horticultural
rules have been arranged by each
farmer, although the mercury may-
drop to the zero mark during a cold
spell, without the slightest fear
that when he resumes his daily duties the following morning he will
find his crop blackened with frost.
The frost foreteller is an innocent
looking piece of apparatus as it sits
idly under the apple trees, but it
has a little thermometer (irmly planted amidships that never goes to
sleep. When the temperature
starts a swift slide towards the
freezing mark, several degrees on
the safe side thereof the trusty thermometer begins to ring a bell in the
farmer's bedroom and keeps on ringing it until he appears in the orchard and turns it off.
Scattered around here and there
are covered pots. These pots are
filled with crude petroleum, and
once alarmed by the glass, the fruit
grower simply goes rapidly from
pot to pot with a handful of matches
and it'> all up with Jack Frost. In
a moment the trees are enveloped
in a thick black smoke, and the
fruit crop is saved, the tops go back
on the pots and the fires go out.
A fruit inspector says that orchards supplied with smudge pots can
be kept eight degrees warmer than
those without them, and many have
been saved with them where
smiidge-potless ranches adjoining
suffered total loss. Smudge pots
are used in many places.

Black Hand gang that has plagued
the place was leading the authorities an exciting chase, the community was stunned by a terrific explosion in the mines, causing many
deaths and untold anguish to the
friends ofthe miners who were entombed and whose fate was in suspense.
Even this is now forgotten in the
presence of the tempest of fire that
has laid waste the whole countryside and taken a heavy toll of life.
So large was the area involved that
it is impossible even yet to take the
full measure of the calamity. What
is known is that a thriving town ol
5,000 inhabitants is totally destroyed except a dozen or so of houses;
that more than a score of people-
are known to have met death in one
of its most appalling forms, while
many more are supposed to he lost;
and that millions of dollars worth
of property were consumed.
Aside from the loss of life, the
worst feature of the disaster is the
destruction of the splendid forests.
The town can and will soon be rebuilt, for Fernie is the centre of a
rich mining district ; but the denuded hillsides cannot for a long time,
if ever, be restored to their original
beauty and value.
Strike on C. P. R.
ered to Sir Thomas Shaughnessy to
the effect that if the schedule was
put into effect the men would quit.
At the same time he was asked to
reopen negotiations. No reply was
received from him, and the original
instructions to the men stand.
Kvery shop, roundhouse, terminal
and divisional point on the whole
system is affected, there being between 8,000 and 10,000 men in the
unions involved. These unions are
blacksmiths, boiler makers, car repairers, electricians, machinists,
moulders, pipe fitters, specialists
and all helpers to the various trades.
All of these organizations are part
of the international trades unions
and will be backed by the international organization. Of the whole
number of employees 97.3 per cent,
voted for a strike, so that the tie-
up will be absolute.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 7,  I90K.
The Kingdom of Canada.
—o—
Under the above heading John S.
Kwart, K.C., of Toronto, an eminent lawyer and essayist, discusses
in a most interesting way and with
the utmost frankness the supremely
important question of the destiny of
Canada.
Al lhe outset he quotes this sentence from Tyler's Literary History
ofthe American Revolution : ''To
know whether it be to the interest
ot this continent to be independent,
we need only ask this easy, simple
question : Is it to the interest of a
man to be a boy all his life?" In
the eyes of Mr. Kwart, then, independence is the necessary, the normal, the inevitable destiny of
Canada.
The volume opens with an address
delivered in Toronto and Ottawa in
1(|04, and in this the author rejoices
that the spirit of "divine discontent"
is taking possession of the Canadian
people. This discontent he justifies
by a full enumeration of the limitations that exist, in theory at least,
as to the legislative power of the
I).>minion. "All the power which
we have comes from a statute passed
at Westminster. It does not depend
id any way upon our own declaration. We are not sovereign. We
are subordinate." Then follows an
enumeration of the things which
Canada can not do, which must be
done for us by the Imperial parliament. Those who have been content with the i datively smooth
workings of our institutions will be
surprised at the length of this list.
Mr. Kwart as a lawyer is specially
insistent on the control exercised
by the privy council over our jurisdiction. "Colonists self-governing
colonists, thev are called are not
allowed to settle their own lawsuits.
The Malay Slates can do that much."
This condition of affairs he considers humiliating; but he is not a
destructive revolutionist. He is
quite satisfied with what has been
accomplished on condition that "we
go on as we have been going." He
is not afraid to speak of independence, bul he insists on a qualification:
"If you mean legislative independence power to regulate the
sale of books in our own territory,
to settle our own lawsuits, to make
our own live-cent pieces and our
own commercial arrangements, I
say, Yes, I advocate independence,
and in return I ask, Do you advocate independence, and if so, for
how long 'i Hut if by independence
you mean separation from  the Hrit
ish crown, and the election of a new
king, or president, I answer,  No,  I
I do not advocate independence. Let
us go on as we   have  been   going.
i We  have  been   advancing   toward
legislative freedom. Let us advance.
1
We have stood still upon our allegiance to the Hritish crown. Let us
still stand steadily there."
Mr. Kwart's ideal is the elevation
of Canada to the full rank of an
independent kingdom under the
Hritish crown. He instances that
the King of Kngland was also King
of Scotland before the Union, also
that Hanover long was ruled by the
British sovereign. Of this dignity
he not only wants the substance,
namely, that the King should be
advised by his Canadian ministers
in matters pertaining to Canada ;
but he insists upon the importance
of the name. After recalling that
at the time of Confederation Sir
John A. Macdonald was in favor of
Kingdom instead of Dominion, he
says: "Had we received at baptism
the name which Sir John A. Macdonald desired, we would now undoubtedly be not only in fact, but
in sentiment, much more a nation
than we are to-day. We should
have grown to our title."
Throughout his book Mr. Rwart
is quite positive on one point :
"Canadians are absolutely determined that for the future they are
going to make all their own laws.
With immense difficulty we have
acquired thai right in almost complete form. And 'what we have
we'll hold.' None of it shall go
back to Westminster or to Downing
Street -Imperial Federation without an Imperial parliament remains,
as it always was, a dream."
At the end of the volume, as a [
fitting conclusion, he considers five
possible solutions of the problem of
Canada's future: 1st, union with
the United States; 2nd, an independent republic; 3rd, union with
the United Kingdom; 4th, an independent monarchy with a Canadian
king; Sth, an independent monarchy
with the same sovereign as the
United Kingdom. He would reason rather than proceed upon mere
sentiment, that is, he would exclude
personal desite, but not the sentiments of the Canadian people,
which are an essential factor. These
sentiments are ascertained from a
study of the past and present and
lead lo the conclusion that Canada's
future will be to stand united with
(ireat Britain under the same sovereign, but each managing its foreign as well as its internal affairs,
co-operating in all matters of mutual advantage in wars under
agreed conditions, in trade, iu communication by cables, by post and
by speediest methods of travel, the
increase and advancement, by these
means, of imperial sympathy and
friendship and brotherhood — "a
future of which we need neither be
afraid nor ashamed."

k	 Death to All Flies.
In the long warfare between the
spider and the fly, the latter has
had the housewife for its auxiliary
and friend. The flies have been
tolerated, even fed and nurtured,
while the spiders and their webs
have been ruthlessly destroyed.
This unremitting and unrelenting
war against it keeps the spider population down, while the flies increase
and multiply by millions and tens of
millions, almost unchecked.
The spider is ugly and his web is
unsightly tn the estimation of most
people, but spiders hurt no human
creature. They feed on flies, which
are the foes of mankind, and do
mankind a service. It was once
supposed that flies were harmless
and promoted cleanliness by their
unremitting work as scavengers.
Hut a scavenger is not an agreeable
or safe companion. Many diseases
are nurtured by filth, and the fly,
flitting about from putrefaction and
decay to soundness and health, carries on his feet the germs of decay
and disease, and so far as those
germs are transferable the fly blights
everything it touches.
This harmful agency of the common house fly is recognized now as
it was not in the past, and screens
to exclude it from the house are in
common use. Hoards of health in
eastern cities are circulating cards
to residences, hotels, restaurants
and other places for use in fly time.
They contain these rules.
Keep the flies away from the sick,
especially those ill with contagious
diseases. Kill every fly that stravs
into the sick room. His body is
covered with disease t_vrms.
Do not allow decaying material
of any sort to accumulate on or
near your premises.
Keep all receptacles for garbage
carefully covered and the cans
cleansed or sprinkled with lime or
oil.
Pour kerosene into the drains.
Cover all food exposed for sale.
Screen all windows or doors, especially the kitchen and dining
room.
Dont forget that if you see flies
their breeding place is in nearby
filth.
Keep flies away from filth and re-
luse and they cannot multiply.
Keep garbage and all food out of
their reach and they will go elsewhere, as they must eat. Their
search for food is perpetual and the
more revolting the sttbslance the
more welcome it seems to them.
Wounds, tores and disease have
special attraction for them and this
makes them the messengers of pestilence. They carry on their feet
the bacilli of typhoid, tuberculosis,
diphtheria, measles, sepsis or blood
poison and other infectious diseases.
This is not mere theory, but has
been conclusively demonstrated by
tests of gelatine plates, on which
the tim were induced to alight
afler feeding on meat smeared with
cultures of various bacilli.

They go direct from putrefaction

noxious disease to the lips of maidens, and their feet establish a direct
communication between the objects
which they touch. As a transmitter of disease they are man's worst
enemies. Kill lhem, screen them,
starve them, leave them no place in
which to breed. There is death in
their touch; keep them away.

Sopha St. Pierre, a well known

disappeared under circumstances
pointing to a brutal murder. She

instituted. Her shoes and stockings
were found on the bank of the river,
and there were signs of a struggle.

his entire property, leaving him a
balance of $12.60. The trees, which
are Royal Annes, do well in this
soil. From one of the trees he
picked 386 pounds of cherries, for
which he received $34.74. The
trees received only ordinary care.
Crop reports from Armstrong are
to the effect that rain is needed in
lhe entire Okanagan. Fall wheat
is in good shape, but  spring wheat
below the actual cost of production.
With immense stocks on hand in
manv of the mills, the war will probably be carried on for a long time,
or until a reduction is made in the
stocks. While the lumbermen will
not reap large harvests, the farmers ofthe prairies will derive benefits in cheap lumber. The reduced
prices are not likely to lower the
local prices, it is said. In anticipation of getting his
motor cars into commission, J. F.
Royer has disposed of some of his
horses recently. D. Gillespie has
bought one team for $400. On
Tuesday Mr. Royer went to Penticton to deliver a team to John Ma-
honey, who pays $500 for the loam,
wagon and harness. The motor
cars have arrived at Spokane and
are expected here soon.
The Palmer Mountain Prospector
says : "The hay crop in the Similkameen valley fell off about 60,
this year. It is the first time a
shortage of the hay crop has ever
been known in that locality." While
this may be true of the U. S. portion of the Similkameen, it does not
apply to the portion about Keremeos. Around the town and for 12 or
14 miles down the valley the hay
crop is fully up to the average, and
from there on down to the boundary the shortage is not great and
shows itself mostly on the high dry
lands. It is only after the houndary is crossed thai the shortage is
serious.
