SATURDAY, MARCH 17,1906
FRUIT GROWING,
The organization of a branch of the
B. C. Fruit Growers' Association in
Revelstoke is another step in advance
fcr the district. The valleys and
benches along the Upper Columbia
River, the Eagle Pass, the level bench
lands around the City of Revelstoke
and along the Columbia River between Revelstoke and Arrowhead, the
bench lands on the Arrow Lake provide a large area ol first-class fruit
lands, and while peaohes may be successfully grown in only a few spots,
lor the hardier fruits, such as cherries,
plums, apples and probably pears,
there is no doubt the district is well
adapted. Wonderful success has attended the growth oi apples and plums
in Revelstoke wherever tried. Small
fruits wili alio do well. The distriot
has the advantage over all other parts
o: Britith Columbia ior supplying the
great markets of tht Northwest with
■mail fruits, in tint it is 24 hours
trani|.-.rtition nearer than any other
fruit-growing point Within a year
of piloting small iruit* will bring
rtturns, tnd while it is a matter of
waiting for a few years for the larger
fruits to come into bearing, there is
no doubt the Investment is one that
will be handsomely repaid. For a
pleasant, independent, profitable life,
there ii no line ol occupation beat.-.
that of the- fruit-grower, and \v< bo-
lieve the time is not fur distant when
the distriot will be dotted with
lUOCttlfu! and flourishing orchards.
The great thing to be aimed it by
those intending to go into fruitgrowing is to plant tew kinds and
thoie best adapted to the district.
THE DEUTSCHMAN CAVES,
Now that the Dominion Parliament
is in session we hope that \V. ,\,
Galliber, M. P., will take up the question ol tlie Government securing and
making accessible to the public the
Deultoliman caves, so conveniently
located to Revelitoke. Score! of enquiries have been coming for months
from New York, Chicago, St. Louis,
Boston and eastern Canadian p.ints.
This means there arc largo numbers
of tourists prepared to visit these caves
tnd anxious to see theni assoonus
the necessary facilities nre afforded,
These oaves trill, il properly handled,
prove a greater attraction and war
rant ns large an expenditure as the
National 1'iirk, of which Ihoy should
properly form lho must important
part.
Thero should bo at this session an
appropriation of $50,000 made for the
purchase of the private rights in the
caves, the building ol carriago to them
from the ruilwii), and fixing laddeis
and railings throughout lho caves,
besides lighting Ibcm by electric light
so that tbey may be placed in lho
ino*i attractive condition for tourisls,
and their beauties made fully available These caves can he made a
means ol attracting thousands uf
people to the mountains, Cougar
Basin, where the oaves arc located,
has been well described by Mr.
Wheeler, K.K.tl.S., us" A Paradise for
Botanists," and there io no more
lovely place (or the tourist tc spend n
holiday. From the Look-Out Point
at the enves is obtained one of the
grandest mid most impressive views to
be seen ill the mountains,
And, while dealing with this matter,
it is only just to C. Deiitscbiuiin, who
has done so much to make them
known, that be receives fair compensation for the trouble he has gone to
and tbe work has done on thorn, Hul
for him the caves would probably
have still Iuin unknown, and in Inking over his title to them, the Government should treat him liberally,
The Dominion National Park is an
institution of which Canada is proud,
It is rapidly becoming known ns the
world's play-ground. The expenditures made in its improvement and
attractiveness have been endorsed by
the people everywhere, It has been
directly anil indirectly responsible for
the expenditure and investment, of
millions in Canada, and tbe Dominion has no better investment, Let
these great caves bo fittingly recognised by Ihe nation us the valuable
addition they nre to Canada's scenic
attractions.

A BIG LOCOMOTIVE.
Enterprise of the C. P. R.
The''.!'. R. is experimenting with
what is said to be the largest locomotive ever built. This locomotive
was designed by Mr. Vaughan, It,
left tho -bops under its own iteam lor
the North Hay division, on which it
will be tried out.
The C I', It. is trying to get an
engine that will i ike tho transcontin;
entul across to Vanoouver Inoneaeo-
tion, Hitherto when traffic has bfjen
at all heavy it lias been lound neoes
inry to break tho transcontinental into
two lections,  This new engine, if it.
lulfills expectations, will take a train
ol twenty passenger cars across the
oontinent,
Though the C, P. R. authorities admit that tbey have built the largest
engine ever constructed in America,
they will not give out any particulars
us to its weight Or manner of construction.
Pleases every smoker—the "Maroa
Vuelta."
THE Y. M. C. A.
Statements of Its Aims and
Accomplishments.
Fred 15, Smith, of Huston, international secretary of the Y.M.C.A., one
nf tbo foremost men in (he work of
l he association and gifted orator, was
tin guest of honor at a banquet tendered by the Winnipeg members of the
Y.M.C.A. who to the number of 230
gathered around the festive board, but
the feast of reason afforded by tbe
address'ol the guest of the evening far
surpassed in enjoyment that of the
more material things.
Mr. Smith said he was gluil to be
present at such a gathering and very
glad to meet Rev. ,1. L. Gordon, at
whose feel he begun bis Y.M.C.A.
career. He was nlso gbul tu be in the
presence of a man who bad made such
an impression upon his life ns the
author of "Black Rook" and "The
Prospector." When so ninny clear cut
young men gathered at u meeting
with no ulterior motive in view, it was
n tribute to the work of the association. That such men would give an
evening ol their valuable timo to srch
a meeting augured well for the future
of the cause, Thc moral welfare of
the young iiinn be considered the
groat problem of the future, II the
problem did not receive tlie deep study
ol the present generation the nation
wus (loomed. He was glad to note the
commercial prosperity ol the city ol
Winnipeg, the London ol tho northwest, hut it was n question if it would
not be well to call a halt ill raising
the prices of corner lots and stocks
and bonds, and give mine time to the
more greater problem, Tbe man who
planned only in twenty-live years is
narrow; the groat man always looked
abend nnd made his plans for centuries,
In discussing the matter uf Christianity Mr. Smith maintained that tlie
need of to-dny was for sane, sound,
sensible religious life. Tlie sanctimonious man, the monstrosity iu tlie
religious life, wns the cause of treat
harm, and turned many a young mnn
from the right course. No person
could ever understand the problems
of ii young ninn better thun thejoung,
and lie should tako a sensible method
of influencing his comrades,
With striking und forcible illustrations the speaker drove home thc fact
that getting young men interested in
Y.M.C.A. work wns only to be nccom-
plishetl by long and patient labor,
Tbo future of the association di ponded
upon what went into it and if the
power, talent and wealth of the younger generation were enlisted the success
wns assured.
Mr. Smith then took the audience
on an imaginary trip over the world,
tnd showed them the ivork ■ : ass, oil-
tion men as ho hid Been it. Wl at
greatly impressed the listeneis wm the
fact thai the president* of tin I
as- ci 'i:- :i- were nearly ilt lys the
lieutenant-governor ol ti.,- province!.

FRUIT GROWING
Meeting Held to Organise Association.
A meeting wai bold it tho Cily
Hall on Tuesday evening to consider
fruit growing in the district. Fred
Eraser, Gold Commissioner, was voted
to the chair, tnd introduced Mr.
llrtndrith, secretary ol the Ii. C. Fruit
Growing Association, who would address them on the subject.
H. E. R. Smythe was appointed
secretary pro tern.
Mr. Brandritli gave a history ot the
B C. Fruit-Growers Association and
tho work it had (lone in advertising
the Iruits ol the province, improvements in lighting insect pests, proper
packing of fruits, and protecting th-
members agaiust Iraudulont deal rs
The Association had 11I.-.0 secured reduced Ireight and express rates, and
gave information on Iruit growing to
members,
PLANTING AS ORCHARD.
The first thing to be considered in
planting an orchard was the soil. The
best orchard he had planted was on
clear land to which fertility had been
.applied. It was folly to plant trees
lamong stumps or stones, and it would
pay to clear the ground thoroughly
first. Having prepared the ground,
the next thing was to peg thp field
out, measuring exactly where the
treeB were to go. When planting get
a piece of wood with a V iu it and a
hole in each end to fix at the stakes,
planting the tree in the V, and this
would eniurt even planting. In
planting trees cut damaged roots back
to the clean wood, cutting in a slope
Irom the bottom side of the root. Mr.
Brandritli then illustrated pruning a
tree. Where they had soft snow they
■should prune the side shoots oil' for a
height of three and a half feet. Pruning should be done to cause an up-
Igrowing tree to spread and a spreading
itree to grow upright. In planting a
ttree the hole thtuld be dug four
lnteliea beyond the ends ol the roots.
When the tree was being planted it
should be shaken up and down a little
to settle the soil around it, aud then
tramp the earth around the roots.
Level the ground up. Plant two
inches deeper than in tlie nursery.
Don't put manure round the roots or
you Mill kill it. Keep the ground
■clean, and strawberries cm be grown
in a young orchard tor a few years.
Pens or potatoes could also be grown.
When the trees begin to bear grow
■nothing else, but cultivate, which
would ensure moisture and result in
raising good Iruit.
PESTS.
They were fortunate in having no
'eodlin moth or San Jose scale, but the
oyster scale might do ns much damage. The principal pests they hud tn
light were the oyster scale, woolly
and green aphis, aud where they grow
peaches, the borer. Tlie oyster scale
could be kept in check by thc lime,
salt nnd sulphur spray, put on end ol
November and end of February.  This
■would pretty nearly clean out scale.
.-.One sprnying a year should be done,
.about end of Februaiy. Bordeaux mix-
'iture wns another good fungicide.
Woolly aphis was best kept in check
by spraying with lye. The green aphis
wis beat checked by sprnying with
whale oil lotp mixture. Apple icab
was a great trouble at the coast, and
while it could not be eradicated it
could be kept in check 10 that IIO per
.cent ol the fruit would be first-class.
By tdding paris green they could kill
.any leaf eating insects. The slug in
pear or cherry trees could be killed by
-dust or ashes. When the treeB began
to bear it was desirable to thin tlie
Iruit to one fruit to every five inches.
The packing of Iruits was then dealt
with. An express olllcer told him
there were 800 towns and villages in
the northwest tint had not a box of
Iruit last year and it wai up to British
Columbia to supply that great market,
which this province could not supply
SI every acre they knew ol was under
fruit.
In reply to questions Mr. Brandritli
ri commended planting one year old
trees. The lime, salt and sulphur
wash should be applied hot. A good
ipray pump was required, He considered spring thc best timo to plant
out orchards. On light land trees
should be mulched. In cutting back
a tree cut back two-thirds last ytar's
growth, The less the knife is used on
tlie cherry the better. Ilo recommended Heine Claude de llavay plums
lor quality. To avoid bark splitting
bind the young trees with cedar or
birch bark.    He urged them tu plant
.only a lew  varieties and co-operate
' among themselves.
A hearty vote ol thankB was accord-
od Mr. Brandritli (or the address and
information ho had given the meeting.
It was reiolvedj to form the meeting
into a branch of the B. C. Fruit-
Gruwors' Association, and thtt .Messrs.
Gayman, Siegfried, H. E. K. Smythe,
Foote and Willis Armstrong be 11 committee to carry out the objects, ol the
Association, appoint ollicers, arrange
lectures and practical demonstrations

The representative of eastern capitalists wants to secure 50,000 acres of

view to sub-dividing it Into small lots
for fruit growing, building roads,
clearing and planting the land, and
arranging for marketing'the fruit output. Application has been nnide to
the government lor this bind. This is
the beginning of an important movement for the settlement of the valley

THE MINING REVIVAL.
(Rossland Miner.)
Thnt there is a revival in mining
setting in is as plain as a pikestaff
London iB manifesting nu interest in
the local mines, and tlie prices ol the
shares of tlie lending companies are
beginning to rise, and promise to go
still higher.
Boston and New York uro displaying a marked concern in the big
copper mines of tlie Boundary, have
discerned their dividend-paying capacity, and the peoplo there are bidding
against each other for the shares, till
Granby stock has touched the record-
breaking price of $11.50.
Toronto is purchasing the shares ol
tlie Consolidated Mining and Smelting
Company of Canada till they have
reached the high price of $140 a share
or $10 above par, which is a most comfortable condition for the shares ol a
mining company to be in.
Toronto, too, is again purchasing
the shares of local companies, and is
dealing in certificates of mining corporations that are not even operating
nt present, but which promise to be
shortly.
An offer of $5,000,000 iu cash, it is
alleged, was refused tor the Nickel
Plate mine in tho Similkameen, be
cause the managers of the Daly estate,
which owns the mine, think it is
wortli more.
F. Aug. Heinze is turning his capital into this province in tlie shape ol
investments in copper properties, and
with his advent is coining the mining
boom which lelt the province about
the time that ho took up his departure
in 1898. Capitalists have their tgenti
in nearly every camp in the province
looking for opportunities for investment.
These are a lew of the straws whioh
show which way tlie mining brec/o is
blowing in this province, and they unerringly point out that the present
your will surpass all previous years in
point ol production and in the number ol legitimate mining enterprise!
that will be undertaken. The outlook
is most encouraging, nnd shows that
the mining industry has got on a lino
and enduring basis, and Irom now on
will flourish to a greater degree than
ever.

FRUIT GROWING.
The organization oi a branch ol the
B. C, Fruit Growers' Association in
Revelitoke is another step in advance
for the district. The valleys aud
benches along the Upper Columbia
River, the Eagle Puss, the level bench
lauds wound the City ol Revelstoke
and along the Columbia River between Revelstoke and Arrowhead, the
bench lands on the Arrow Lake pn -
ride a large area ol first-class fruit
land., aud while- peaches may be successfully grown in only a few spots,
for the hardier iruits, such aicheiriei,
plums, applet and probably pears,
there is no doubt the district is sell
adapted. Wonderful success has attended the growth oi apples and plums
in Reveist.ke wherever tried. Small
fruiti wili alio do well, The dislricl
has the ad. intake over all other parts
of British Columbia ior supplying the
gre.it markets ol th* Northwest with
small iruits, in tint it is 24 hours
trawportttion nearer than uny other
fruit-growing point, Within .i year
oi planting small iruit- '.'.iii bring
rtturns tnd while it it a matter of
waiting foi i lew :•■ ii' l-i the larger
fruiti to come into bearing, then .-
no doubt the invettment .-
will be l„ii.-I- mi.;. repaid, For »
pleasant, independent, profitable le
there ii no line --I ocoupttion beat*
that of the fruit-grower, and w< bo-
lieve the time is not fur distant -:.-:.
the distriot will be dotted ith
luccessiul tnd Bourilhing ,-.-clianla.
Tbe great thing to Is? aimed at by
those intending to go into fruitgrowing is to plant lew kinds und
those best adapted to the distriot.
THE DEUTSCHMAN CAVES.
Now that the Dominion Parliament
is in session we hope that \\. A.
fialliher, M. P., will take up tbe quel-
Hon ol the Government securing und
making accessible to the public the
Deiitschmaii caves, so conveniently
heated to Revelstoke. .-c-'.-es of en
quiriea have been coining lor iiumtliB
from New York, Chicago, St. Louis,
Boston and eastern Canadian pointi,
This means there un- large numbers
0! touriEts prepared to visit tlie."- chm-i
and aniious to see theni as soon nr
the necessary facilities are afforded,
These caves will, il properly handled,
prove a greater attraction nml war
rant a* large nn , sponditiiro us tlie
National Park, of which thoy should
properly lorm lho must inipurtaut
part.
There should bo at this sou-ion an
appropiiation ol !f50,00() ittiido tor lho
purohaso ot the private rights in the
caves, lb,- building ot carriage to them
irom iln- railwn.i, and Hxlng hidden
nnd railings throughout tho caves,
besides lighting thoin by electric light
so that they muy bo placed In the
most attractive condition for toiirisls,
and their beauties made fully available. Those citvi-s can be mado a
means ul attracting thousands of
people lo the mountains, Cougar
Basin, where the cavei arc located,
has been woll described by Mr.
Wheeler, f.R.G.S., as " A Paradise for
Botanists," and then', iii no more
lovely jilucc- for the tourist tc spend a
holiday, From tho Look-Out Point
at the caves is obtained one ol the
grandest and most impressive views to
be seen in the mountains,
And, while dealing with this matter,
it is only just to C. Dcutschiniin, who
has done so much to make them
known, that, he receives fair compensation for the trouble ho has gone to
and the work bus done on thorn, Hul
[or hi,n the oaves would prubiilily

THE Y. M. C. A.
Statements of  Its Aims and
Accomplishments.
Fred II. Smith, of Boston, international secretary of tbe Y.M.C.A., one
,( llie foremost mon in tlio work ol
lite associiition and gifted nnitor, was
tho guosl ol honor at a banquet tendered by the Winnipeg members ol the
Y.M.C.A. who to the number of 2110
gathered around the festive board, but
the feast of reason afforded hy the
iiddress'ol the guest oi the evening far
surpassed in enjoyment that of the
more mateiiiil things.
Mr. Smith said he was glad to be
present at suoh a gathering and very
clad to meet Rev. ,1. L. Gordon, at
whose led he begun his Y. M. C. A.
career, lie was also glnd to bo in the
presence of a man who had made such
an impression upon his life as the
author of "Black Rock" and "The
Prospector." When so many clear-cut
young men gathered at a meeting
with no ulterior motive in view, it was
a tribute to tho work of the association. That such men would give nn
evening uf their valuable time to such
a mooting augured well for the future
of the cause. The moral welfare of
the young man he considered tlie
groat problem of the future. If the
problem did not receive the deep study
ol the present generation the nation
wus doomed, tie was glad to note the
commercial prosperity ot the city ol
Winnipeg, the London of llm northwest, but it wits a question if it would
not be well to call a halt in raising
tlie prices of corner lots and stocks
and bonds, and givo mure time to the
more greator problem. The man who
planned only in twenty-live years is
narrow; the great man always looked
ahead and made his plans for centuries.
In discussing the matter of Christianity Mr. Smith maintained that the
need of to-day was for sane, sound,
sensible religious life. The sanctimonious man, the monstrosity in the
religious life, was the cause of trreat
harm, and turned many a young man
from the right course. No person
could ever understand the problems
of n young man better than thejOUng,
and he should tako a sensible method
of influencing his comrades.
With striking and forcible illustrations the speaker drove home tho (net
that netting young men interested in
Y.M.C.A. work was only to be accomplished by long und patient labor,
Tbe future of the association di ponded
upon what went into it and if the
power, talent and wealth of the younger generation were enlisted the success
was assured.
Mr. Smith then took tho audience
on an imaginary trip over tho world,
and showed them tho work ol ossi elation men ns lie had seen it, What
greatly impressed the listeneiswaa tlie
lact that the presidents ol the Indian
association* were nearly always the
lieutenant-governor ol ti.,- provincei,

FRUIT GROWING
Meeting Held to Organise Association.
A meeting wai hold tt tho City
Hall on Tuesday evening to consider
Iruit growing in the district. Fred
B'rucr, Gold Commissioner, was voted
to the chair, and introduced Mr.
Brandritli, secretary ol the B. C. Fruit
Growing Association, who would address them on the Biibject.
H. E, ll. Smythe was appointed
secretary pro tern.
Mr. Brandritli gave a history of the
11 C. Fruit-Growers Associiition und
the work it had done in advertising
the fruits ot the province, improvement! in lighting insect pests, proper
packing ol fruits, and protecting th-
members against fraudulent deal rs
The Association hud ul-.o secured reduced freight and express rates, and
gave information on fruit growing to
members.
PLANTING AN ORCHARD,
The first thing to be considered in
planting an orchard was the soil. The
best orchard he had planted wns on
clear sand to which fertility bad been
applied. It was lolly to plant trees
among stumps or stones, and it would
giny to clear the ground thoroughly
first. Having prepared the ground,
the next thing was to peg the field
out, measuring exactly where the
trees were to go. When planting get
a piece of wood with a V in it and a
hole in each end to fix at the stakes,
planting the tree in the V, and this
would eniurt even planting. In
planting trees cut damaged roots back
to the clean woodcutting in a slope
Irom the bottom side o! the root. Mr.
Brandritli then illustrated pruning a
• tree. Where they had soft snow they
should prune the side shoots off for a
height of three and a hall Ieet. Pruning should be done to cause an up-
.'growing tree to spread and a spreading
itree to grow upright. In planting a
ttree the hole shmild be dug tour
'incite! beyond the ends o! the roots.
When the tree was being planted it
should be shaken up and down a little
to settle the soil around it, aud then
tramp the earth around the roots.
I.evcl the ground up. Plant two
inches deeper than in tlie nursery.
Don't put manure round the roots or
;you will kill it.    Keep the ground
• clean, and strawberries cm be grown
in a young orchard lor a lew years,
l'eusor potatoes could also be grown.
When  the  trees  begin to bear grow
'nothing else, but cultivate, which
would ensure moisture and result in
raising good Iruit.
PESTS.
'They were fortunate in having no
'codlin moth or San Jose scale, but the
oyster scale might do as much damage, The principal pests they hud tn
fight were the oyster scale, woolly
and green aphis, aud where they grow
peaches, the borer. The oyster scale
could be kept in check by the lime,
salt and sulphur spray, put on end of
November and end of February. This
would pretty nearly clean out scale.
nOiie spraying a year should be done,
.about end ol Februaiy. Bordeaux mixture was another good fungicide.
Woolly aphis waa best kept in check
by spraying with lye. The green aphis
wis belt checked by spraying with
whale oil lotp mixture. Apple icab
was a great trouble at the coast, and
while it could not be eradicated it
could be kept in check so that DO per
-cent ol the Iruit would be first-class.
By idding paris green they could kill
any leaf eating .meets. The slug in
pear or cherry trees could be killed by
■duit or tiliet. When the trees began
to bear it was desirable to thin thc
fruit to one fruit to every five inches.
The packing of Iruits was then dealt
with. An express olllcer told him
there were 800 towns and villages in
the northwest that had not a box ol
fruit last year and it wai up to British
Columbia to supply that great market,
whioh this province could not supply
if every acre they know of was under
fruit.
In reply to questions Mr. Brandritli
ri commended planting one year old
trees. The lime, salt and sulphur
wash should bo applied hot. A good
spray pump wai required, lie considered spring the best timo to plant
out orchards. Ou light land trees
should be mulched. In cutting back
a treo cut back two-thirds last ytur's
growth. The less the knife is uted ou
the. cherry the better. Ilo recommended RoincClaudo do llavay plums
lor quality. To avoid bark splitting
bind tho young trees with cedar or
birch hark. He urged them tu plant
only a lew varieties and co-iipurate
among themselves.
A hearty vote ul thanks wna accorded Mr. iiniiidiitii for tlio address and
information he had given the meeting.
It was resulvcdj to form the meeting
into a branch ol the B. 0. Fruit-
Gmwcri1 Association, and that Messrs.
Gayman, Siegfried, H. E. R. Smythe,
Foote and Willis Armitrongbe a committee to carry out the object, ul the
Association, appoint oflioeri, arrange
lecture) and practionl demonstrations
ot planting, pruning, packing, elc.
The following officers were olocted:
President, W. Armstrong; vice-president, F. Gayman; secretary-treasurer,
H. E. R. Smythe.

THE MINING REVIVAL.
(Rossland Miner.)
That there is a revival in milling
setting in is as plain as a pikestaff,
London iB manifesting an interest in
the local mines, and the prices ol the
shares of the leading companies arc
beginning to rise, and promise to go
still higher.
Boston and New York aro displaying n marked concern in tlio big
copper mines of tlie Boundary, have
discerned their dividend-paying capacity, and the people there are bidding
against each other lor the shares, till
Granby stock lias touched the record-
breaking price of $11.50.
Toronto is purchasing the shares of
the Consolidated Mining aud Smelting
Company ot Canada till they have
reached tho high price of SJ140 a share
or lf-10 above pur, which is a most comfortable condition lor the shares of a
mining company to he in.
Toronto, too, is again purchasing
the shares ol local companies, and is
dealing in certificates of mining corporations that are not even operating
nt present, but which promise lo be
shortly.
An offer ol $5,000,1)00 in cash, it is
alleged, was refused lor the Nickel
Pluto mine in tho Similkameen, he
cause the managers ol the Daly estate,
which owns the mine, think it is
worth more.
F. Aug. Iloinzc is turning his capital into this province in the shape of
investments in copper properties, and
with his advent is coming the mining
boom which lelt the province about
the time that ho took up his departure
in 1898. Capitalists have their tgents
in nearly every camp in the province
looking for opportunities for investment.
These are a lew of the straws which
allow which way the mining breeze is
blowing in this province, and they unerringly point out timt the present
your will surpass all previous years in
point ot production and in the number ol legitimate mining enterprises
that will be undertaken. The otttluuk
is most encouraging, and shows that
thc mining industry has got un a linn
and enduring basis, and from now on
will flourish to a greater degree than
ever.
LUMBERING
Protective Policy Urged,
In their annual report the Vancouver Board nl Trade say:—
"Lumber liidtiBtry—Sharing in tlie

shipments in that direction, and
reported prospects lor the current year
most promising.
"It may seem somewhat inopportune
to again introduce the subject of protection lor this very Important industry—Important alike to the community as a whole and to the iiiiinuiai-tur

Conservatives Tender Welcome
to T. Taylor. IH. P. P.
At the Selkirk Hall last evening
there wits a large and enthusiastic
gathering ot Conservatives and their
friends to lender u welcome to T.
Taylor, M. P. P., on Ihe occasion ul
bis return Irom attending bis parliamentary duties at Victoria, 0. F.
Lindmark, president of the associiition,
occupied the chair, and on the platform with him were the guest ol the
evening, Mayor McLeod and ex-Mayor
O'Brien,
In opening tlie meeting the chairman said the gathering that night
showed the Conservative Association
to be in a healthy condition (hear
hear.) Their membership had grown
Irom 61) to 110 (cheers). Thc object
of the meeting was to meet Mr, Taylor,
M. P. P.. who had just returned from
the coast that morning. Judging
from the reports in the papers the
government was stronger in the ond
than at the beginning of the session.
One thing the government deserved
great credit for was thc improved
financial condition of the province.
That was a matter of importance to
all of them whether Liberals or Conservatives. He bad been talking to
several of their Liberal friends, who
admitted the guod work done by the
government in that direction (cheers.)
The following programme was then
rendered:
Instrumental duct, ,1. Melrose; In
strumental quintette, Messrs. Knapp,
Armstrong,   Edwards,   Sawyer and
Doyle; Recitation, H.A. Lawson; Song,
.1. H. Lyons; Mouth-organ selection,
H. Crick; Bones, 11. A.   Lawson  and
Pat Murphy; (encore).   Song T. Hudson; Quintette, Messrs. Saywer, Edwards, Knapp, Doyle, and  Armstrong.
T. Taylor, M.P.P., was then culled
on and said be could hardly find words
to express his thanks  for  the  kind
reception they hud given him,    For
the short time they bad to arrange
this meeting it spoke well Ior the interest taken in publics by the young
men of  the  city  nnd  the  citizens
generally (cheers)    It also showed
him  the citizens and young men ot
Revelstoke  appreciated  the work he
bud endeavored to do for the eity and
district during the past session.    He
would deal with some of the more important features of tlie session.   The
present ministry was tbe lirst Conservative government the province bad
had.   Tbey came into office when the
province was in a  serious  financial
position, having bad deficits  for  ten.
years of not less than $700,000annually,   In only one year in the history ,,(
the province since confederation was
then- uu deficit.    The  lirst  year  ol
Conservative   rule  in  the  province
vince provided a  surplus of  $30,000
and last year the Financial Minister
•'Va* aide to show ii surplus of !|l2lifi,(IO()

by drastic economy und placing the

C. P. R. be brought back the deeds be
bad already issued. Having been
debarred in this way it was not fair to
demand ol them to make other surveys
within the time. There was no one
there be was sure who would favor the
province repudiating its contract.
(Cheers). It would not be long before
they would have the matter personally
explained to them on the platform by
thc Premier and other members of
the Cabinet.
The Kaien Island matter had been
grossly misrepresented by the opposition press. Mr. Oliver hoped to connect tbe government with discreditable
work in this transaction. A Belect
committee was appointed, and made
full investigation, Notwithstanding
this committee spent six weeks or two
months in investigating this matter
they were unable to adduce anything
derogatory to the government. When
the matter was lirst mooted the Chief
Commissioner had refused to discuss
tbe matter with any person unless
tbey could show they were acting for
tbe Grand Trunk Pacific railway.   Mr.

the licenses that could be grunted
in cities should be limited to three for
the first 500 ol population and one
license for each thousand alter that.
This legislation was not retro-active
and did not effect existing licensos.
Mv. Taylor then condemned in
strong terms what be characterised ns
the disgraceful report! ol the proceedings ol parliament as appearing in the
Vancouver World and Victoria Times.
The government wound up the session
with a bigger and stringer vote in
their support than during the whole
of tbe previous proceedings, whioh
showed how litt'c credence could be
placed on these reports. (CheerB). As
an instance of the grossly unfounded
sensationalism of the World, he mentioned their report that four men had
been frozen to death at Kamloops, A
statement that was calculated to do
Bodwell was then authorised to act as j great harm to the country, although
agent ol the company, and an arrangement wits made whereby the railway
were to get 10,000 aor
tbey did take it back afterwards.

deal than that of the Liberal government, in granting $ 15,000,000 to the
Company to come through the province nt any old time they liked.—
(Cheers). Then the government bad
further provided in this agreement
that the Grand Trunk Pacific must
liegin construction ol their Pacific
terminals by the lltllh ol June and
prosecute the work of building the
ruilwiiy through the province us rapidly as possible, The Provincial government were the only people who hnd

A wrong impression hod gainod ground
hern.     Hitherto  hotel and liquor
licenses hud been granted indiscriminately.   That was not a good  slate, ol
affairs lor the trade or lor tho public
Consequently they were ol the opinion
it wnuld be wise il something were
''"lie to limit licenses to population
With that end iu view a motion was
introduced whereby, alter June llll

conl d assure themthe piesent government bad the confidence ol the people
and the legislature, and intended to
live out their term to the full limit of
the law. They meant to carry on the
business lor Hie next tear, and would
introduce more legislation and carry
on a policy calculated to benefit tbe
province to such an extent that when
tbey did go before the people, be wai
satisfied tbey would be returned to

In opinion there was one thing about

and that was the up-building ol Hovel

meeting with that idea firmly imbued
in their minds aud they could do a
great deal nf good in that way.
