Board of Trade Annual Meeting
It is unfortunate that owing to a
number of co-incidences during the

log of the Hoard ot Trado was not
held on the lirst Thursday ol the
month, nor was il possible to hold
the Annual lieneral Meeting on the
third Tuesday  of the month.
In the case of the tirst meeting the
failure was owing to the lack of a
quorum, The date of the annual

persons which would attend either

Mr. F. W. Laing returned to town
from Vancouver where he had been
attending the B. O. Poultry Association convention and taking In the

the visiting judges commended very
highly on the class of exhibits and

lie said that the poultry department
of the Provincial government keeps a

There were about 3600 Mrfl in the

The Coroner's Inquest Gave Their
Unanimous Decision of "Accidental " Death
Following the brief announcement
of the sad death of Engineer Crco. A.
Morris, which appeared ln our Wednesday issue,  we are able to give the
following facts as to this regrettable
I'lnginrcr fleo. A Morris was working out ol Revelstoke as engineer on
engine No. 18*65, and the accident
happened about 8:30 o'clock on the
morning of the 23rd January, when

Editorla Mull-Herald:—
Dear Sir,—It is with pleusure that
with pleasure that we note thc reports ot Intending home seekers
heading Edenward from Idaho, WaBh
lngton, Alberta, Suskutchcwun, etc.,
which makes the need of a hotel far
more apparent everyday, and as it
haa been proclaimed by the promln -
cut citizens ot Malakwa, there la no
need for a hotel at that place, tho
citizens ot Swanby have arranged to
build ono in tho eurly spring to ac
commodato the numerous visitors ox-
pected thc coming season. Whom
the proprietor will be has not been
determined at this dato. This valley
has beeu iu bud Ior a long time and
is bound to blooni in tho coming Bea
son, It cannot be dclnyed longer.
With all its natural resources, wild
fruit of various kinds to bo had for
the picking and tho abundant growth
of cultivated varieties, free building
material, luel, pure Boft water and
tho mild winter climate and easy
growing of nearly all thc dcsirnblo
vegetables, Held crops that one could
wish for. Dairying, poultry, noes,
and hogs can all be profitably managed In this fair valley. No cyclones
to fear, or hailstorms or blizzards,
no potato bugB or pests to worry
the rancher of this Garden of Eden.
The knockers may knock, hut they
only bruiBo their own hands. No
stranger can look this fair valley ov
er without a f?eling of admiration,
and surprise that it is not further
developed or keeping pace with other
valleys with less advantages than we
have in our Eden, and to our mind
there is only ono reason und thnt hus
been plainly given in former correspondence. Too many knockers is a
better term to uac, as it more na-
turely conforms to the Garden of
Eden, but we And them in all com -
munities, they may lie good neigh -
bors aud respected otherwise, but
this one trait in their character
should be rebuked by overy good citizen and rebuked hard. The child Is
punished for wrongs committed, and
the same applies to older people. So
let us good citizens rebuke the knocker and boost the Garden of Eden
valley. Good, respectable clWzens will
not object, but will put their should
er to the wheel and push, and proclaim the beauties and attractions
ol the land of their homos, tho country that sustains them and protects
them. There is no fixed limit for
this in any country. One Btranger
will go into n new country and see
nothing to nppeal to his ideas and
go  gway cursing.     The    next comes

of a commuaity it ia diflerent. The
Btranger looks to the citlxen lor encouragement a welcome, that be bas
a right to expect ln all uew countries

ia their garb ot influence, and unintelligent. The stranger is ahrouded

Dear Sir,—Altbougb I do not approve ot using thia apace for the purpose of crltliing any individual, still
I am compelled to write a few lines
iu anawer to tbe recent article by
"Another Settler." I would like to
ask this person and all otbera who
are reading this correspondence if
they think that tbe person wbo waa
ao justly criticized in recent articles
ln this space, regarding bia articles
on tbe impossibility of a doctor or
hotel surviving in this locality, did
thia merely on a basis of difference
of opinion? I would like to ask il
they think thia was au honest opinion or if it waa in the interest of
the valley? My answer is NO, It was
merely in the interests of Himself &
Co. I think "Another Settler" aa
well aa myself, has been in the valley long enough to know exactly tbia
man's attitude towards tbe Garden
of Eden.
It is not possible for a man to pub
lisb tbe articles referred to and refuse to sell any part of his holdings
to auy other business enterprise or
anyone individual to be working ia
tbe interests ot anyone but himself.
Every settler in the valley knows
tbat there should be, if not a 'ity,
at least a busy town upon this land
where at present there is one small
store, and we also know tbat tbe
establishment of a town would at
least double the values of our land
and afford tor It a better market. I
do not know who "Another Settlor"
considers tbe better class ot <Jr citizens, but if be is included iu tbe
list I am thankful I do not belong
to tbe ranks of any man who will
volunteer bis apologies in behalf of
Buch a man and I think " Another
Bettler'B" article waa written entirely out ot his owu sophistication.
Royal Commission
Victoria, B. C, Jan. 22.—Recom -
mending sweeping changes in the system of provincial taxation the report of the royal commission on tax
atlon which sat last autumn was
brought down in the legislature to -
day. It proposes to abolish the poll
tax; to abolish tbe personal tax; to
abolish the tax on improvements; to
increase tbo exemption on incomes
to {1,500 with $200 additional for
each child under 18 years, and un ad
ditional $1 ,.'>00 where tbe income is
derived wholly from agriculture; it
proposes thc readjustment of income
tax with a supertax on income above
$50,000; the readjustment of succession duties with an IncreaBe in the
rase of large estates; a reduction In
thc coke tax from 15 to 10 cents per
ton; a thorough rensBessment of the
province with periodical reassessments and an increase in the stall of
assessors, It recommends the assessment of wild land at its actual value and anticipates a possible reduction ln the rate ot taxation all round
after the new and complete assessment rolls have been prepared.
In its preamble the reports says
that the condition ol the province ia
prosperous and the people generally
contented under the taxation at present ImpoBed with some exceptions,
which are the subjects of the recommendations. Tlr.'re seemed practical
unanimity in favor ot maintaining
thc existing rate of taxation coupled
with a rapid rnte of development.
The staff of assessors waB consider -
ably undermanned hence some Inequality in assessments in tho different
districts while land of varying value
tn the same districts were not always bearing their proportionate in-
creas? of taxation.
The report touches on land taxes
viewed ln their historic and economic aspects and sets forth general
considerations why Improvements on
lands should not be taxed, defining at
the some tlmo what is actually
meant by Improvements.
Tho wild land tax remnlns nt 1 por
cent on tho assessed value, tbe tlmbor land tax at 2 per cent on the
assensod value, the mineral tax at 2
per cent on tho assessed value of ore
and the tax on crown granted un-
workod mineral claims at 25 cents
an acre.
Legislation Is rcoommcndi-d to on-
force the registration of real estate
on nflldnvltB (totting forth tho true
consideration for purchase and It Is
proposed tbat tba registration fee of
one-lifth of ono per cent on the value
of reaf estate up to $5,000 should
extend to all real eBtate irrespective
of value.
The commissioners deuling with thc
wild land tux, recommended tbat the
regulation which at present provides
that wild land located west of the
Oascaue mountains shull be classed
as ;in[[.*, *: land when improvements
have been eflected thereon to the assessed value of $2.50 per aero should
extend to land situated eaBt of the
Cascade . inge when it is also situat
od to tho north of tbe 53rd parallel
of latitude.
The commission was composed of
Hou. Price Kiln fn. chairmuu; Hon.
A. McPhillipB and C. H. Lugrln, of
Victoriu, und W. H. Malkin of Vancouver. It sat for four days iu Victoria, four days in Vancouver and
for one day euch in IS other places.
Evidence wns given by 164 witnesses and the commissioner gained information also from government officials and other individuals during
their travels.
There will be no legislation based
on the report during the present ses
sion of the legislature.

Refuse Hindu Wives
Vancouver, Juu. 22—Coming ou the
heels of the Ottawa dispatch to the
effect that the Hindu lenders gained
nothing from the recent visit to thc
coast of Mr. Blair lor thc federnl
government, is the refusal by thc
chief immigration officer here, J. H.
MrUill, to admit two Hindu women
on the Monteagle wives of iwo Vancouver Hindus, one a priest at the
local Hindu temple. His refusal was
on the ground that the women had
not conformed with the immigration
laws, not hnviug come by direct passage! They hail stopped over at Hong
kong and thut made their deportu -
tion necessary. Pending an appeal
to Ottawa, the authorities gave the
women  their  temporary freedom.
There were fully 700 Hindus at the
wharf to see the women disembark.
