ABOUT
JAPAN
it is mow some mouths ago since
very murh was heard oi that great pro
ject, destined to revolutionise the trans
pollution situation of that vast territory touehed by the Columbia River
on both sides of ihe American boundary liue, Which is always referred io aa
The  Columbia River Gruin Route.
But becan-e the Bcheme of rendering
the Oolumbia Hiver navigable from
Revelstoke to Portland has lately been
allowed to slip into the background, it
by no means follows that the proposal
bus been abandoned.
We are iu a position to state, that
alike on the Canadian un,.! U.S. sides
ol the lin". the Communities whose' future i- so much Involved with ihe impi omul nt of Columbiu River navigation, and m ibis catagory must beiu-
clinled a population of at loust 10,000,-
Onu ..1 people, are ^iill keenly interested in the advancement ol this great
enterprise.
Speaking for the Oanadian people, it
is only n ■ essurj for us io point out,
Uiui a grant of uo less .,■>,• £10,000,
was this vein appropriated to be ex-
jH u led upon the thorough equipment
nml expenses ol keeping in th" field for
many months, a Burves purtj headed
by on- of th mot famous hydrogra -
phi, Knj. n- -I- of the Dominion, whose
duly it would be to investigate on tha
spot, the vital question as to the suit,
ability of the Columbia River for navigation and commercial purposes from
Revelstoke to the International Liue.
That -survey is now in Ihe field, and
they time already we understand, tali!, tl -uch data and information as
bale w.-ll r.'pai i the' co-'- ol their
in v.   ligations.
Thi- morning, the editor of this paper, is in receipt ofa marked iopj oi
th.' Spok.tn- Chronicle, containing a
front page headed Item, relative to ihe
acu. n ■      i e amber
of Oomn oi   that, iiy,  with a view
to pushing forward the utilization ot
the uppei Columbia Rivet i-a great
inti rnati aa   traffic artery.
Th" item referred to reads as follows:
"A campaign whi It mnj extend over
man. ening
ofthe Columbia rivet ',• traffic from
its mouth to the Ariow lnke in
BritishColumbia, has been undertaken
by th ■ Spokane iharabei  of commerce,
"At tin- meeting of the trustees this
nf .1: Ool     i llel.bord,
wa-  a,nl.,ii >pe'. i.ii
commute- o. three, to be known as
tin- Uppei Columbia committee, fur the
purpose ol ie>'■ tig i1 Ing ,lie Btiitun of
the rive'i from In Co lo tbe Iioundary
and making a  reporl     to the chamber
of   commerce    wuh    ,- mmendationa
for future ii lion looking to an open
rivei followin i ihe' i o np ll in of ihe
Celilo lock .
"The movement ii concerned one ol
thn most important campaign! ,-f the
year and second only to tbe Industrial
campaign   started   las'l   fall.
COOPERATION  SOUGHT.
"An open Columbia River with u
waterway through the state of Wash -
itigton communicating with interior
points in Uritish Columbia has been
the dream of cheap transportation
enthusiasts1 for years, but lack of cooperative efiort up to this time has
(ailed to bring government recognition to the territory Involved.
"The special committee whicli will lie
appointed by the president oi the
chamber of commerce immediately, will
make a survey of the field at once
with the view-of recommending a
working plan for the commercial organization hero tei follow to interest
the Washington delegation in congress,
and to attempt as -oon as possible to
Bccure governmenl recognition in the
project.
"Wenatcfaee lm-' made- several at-
tempts to eret the open river from
Pasco and the committees from that
place have done considerable lobbying
at Washington, making good bead -
way. It is believed ihat the field is
w.'ll plowed now for the real crop,
ai.il the Bpokan- Chamber of Commerce
is preparing to institute a.revival of
the pioneer efforts of other di-tricts
in a united campaign to bring nbout
it real open waterway if possible."
We are well aware of the gigantic difficulties which must be overcome ere
the dream of a commercial water trans
port system from Revelsloke to Portland, Oregon, down whieh the timber,
minerals and products of B. C, ami
the vast wheat shipment of .etir North
west, in provinces might find their chea
pest, quickest and natural pathway to
ihe' Pacific Ocean,ds realised. Seme of
this opposition cotn.'s from the jeal -
.i!-> of rival cities, who feel that their
commercial gains mighl wrested from
them by Revelstoko a-the threatening
new hub of Northwestern transportation. Other opponents to the project
will-doubtless be new railroad com-
panics which havo made till their plans
in Ignorance of the' fa-i that ihe wator
route via the Columbia to the Sea is
the real keynote to freight rates and
have thus left the Port of Revelstoke
oil the mainlines of their systems,
Then there are the usual rrOWd of
petty knockers and Jerry minded pen-
ple, whose paltry brains are incapable
of grasping the enormous possibilities,
which lie hidden liehin 1 the word- —
"Commercial navigation of the Columbia River."
Bul the action of th" Dominion government, and ihe steps being taken in
Portland, Wenatohee, Spokane, anl
other live commercial cities across the
line, are sufficient lo show any open-eyed Individual, that the Columbia river
Grain Route, is on th-' m ip and must
be , .m-'i,K>rod.

big Vancouver fair.
Mrs. Kred Neimeier of C,-dar Rapids,
lown, Is Ihe guest this wivk of Mrs.
.1 W. Htevemton. Her .son Ralph has
completely recovered his health
Very much impressed with the
marked improvement shown in his
constituency since liis last lour, and
more particularly impressed with the
vast strides that have been made along
the Arrow lakes, R. F. Green, M. P.
for Kootenay, arrived in the city last
evening.
Onthe journey down the Ano.v
lakes Mr. tlreen and his party visited
Nuku-p, Demars, West Demurs, Needles, Arrow Park, Edgewood, Fire Valley,' Renata, Syiiuga Creek and Wesl
Robson, the journey from Nakusp being made by the party in motor
launches.
At each point along the lake Mr.
Green received a splendid reception
and took ample opportunity to en-
ipiire into the nee.Is of his constituents,
AGRICULTURAL DEVELOPMENT
"At Fire Valley we took a 'drive
through the surrounding country and
into the valley," said Mr. Green, "and
I am -.ure that very few people real -
i/.e the gieat amount of good agricultural land there .is to be found in that
locality. We found the people prosperous a,ui with the greatest confidence in the possibilities of their-district.
"Ai West Demars we spent n very
pleasant time and tlie fad that -tr.. k
iiih mo-t was how easily the land was
brought tinder cultivation."
He mentioned how one owner In
that locality had last spring cleared
abeeiii 20 acres of rich laud and al-
l '■ jla large crop of hay almost
ready for cutting.
The soil loo'..ed very mellow. »'ai I
Mr. Green, an-d no doubt with further
cultivation would produce almost any-
thin-';. Roots and small fruits were
grown there in abundance ami ofthe
finest   iptnlity, he  said.
At Renata, Mr. Green said. the
ranches -ire coming n'on.- marvelous-
ly, ih' peaches which lie' sampled then-
he claimed to be lhe finest he had over
tasted or seen anywhere. They wore
almost perfect in llavor. appearance
anil size.
CONFIDENT OF SUCCESS.
'At  Syringa creek and  West  Robson
he lound conditions mu, h tho     same,

land mi Tin slay evening Mr. Green
and party were mot at Rosslan I by
a number of the members of the Rossland Conservative Association, and
s|,ent   a pleasant  time chatting   over
matters of public interest.
"We visited the Centre .st.i uifd Le
Roi mines in the no: l ii belt inl the
Ri, hnie.ii.I Consolidated mines in the
south belt, and wc found that in so
fm a- mining u concerned everything
is undoubtedly very piosperou- un.l
from day to day tbe Rossland mines
arc placing new men upon their stab
of employees," s'aid the member for
Kootenay.
"This year gives every evidence of
being one of the best years wc have
ever had in the mines ol Rostlaal,
in so far us output is concerned." stai
ed Mr. Green.
"We' were particularly pleased with
the attention shown us by the pre i
dent, secretury ami members of the
Rossland Conservative Association.
We Were driven to Trail by the presi -
dent and secretary of the association,
where we had luncheon yesterday,
and spent the afternoon looking over
points of interest and the needs of
the constituents in that oity were
looked into."

DEPUTY MINISTER HERE
Arriving on the i-onsi train last evening together with Mr. Green and his
parte was J.B. Hunter, federnl deputy
minister of public works from Ottawa,
who is returning lo (he capital after

fisheries of British Columbia, wliicb

profitable In tn" world, are now wholly in Japanese hands, yielding 10,5-00
Japanese laborers from Q100 to £t)00
a year apiece, the most of which is
sent in cash to Japan, and alienated
from the British Empire forever. It is
a well-known fact that Japan will not

district, to go ahead immediately with
the construction of the new design of

built.
"The new wharf iU ft. by Id ft., will
rise and fall as the water inthe lakes
rises aud falls nnd will be easy of
access nt all times and, "-aid Mr.
Hunter, "will proven \a-t improve

He had met the majority ol Ins

He was delighted and highly surprised with his trip down the Arrow

struck With the appearance of Iho
cily and particularly with the modern
street lighting, the electric railway
and permanent buildings, Nelson's
modernity for the size ol the city

Political [quality Meeting
Two able addresses were delivered
)a*t Thursday evening at the Political
Equality meeting held in the city hall.
The speakers were Miss Marlon Pearso
Ll. D.. of Bristol University, nnd Mrs.
J. W. Stevenson, B. A., ol Manitoba
"diversity.
Tlio meeting opened at 8:110, with
Mrs. Sturdy, the president.in llie chair
Miss Pease in her address considered
the subject of equal franchise from
three standpoints: First, tho success
of the movement in tho^e British colonies where women have been enfranchised. Second, its succes's or progress
in European countries, ami lastly, the
need for equal suffrage in British Col •
umhiu.
That political equality has been beneficial i" New Zealand und Australia,
Miss Pease proved by statistics to be
lieyoiul the shadow of a doubt, ln New
Zealand where women have voted for
twenty years, one noticeable ellect is
that, whereas il was customary for 6.*i
per cent or thereabouts, oi the rr.en to
vote beforo the women were enfranchised, ilie percentage now averages hitih
in the sH's. This increased interest in
politieal matters, Miss PeasV proved ,
followed in overy country and stato
where political equality lias been established. In Australia where the reform was adopted province at a time,
the speaker contended that if equal
franchise had been a failure it would
not hnve spread. The enthusiasm of
the women iu political matters is quite
Undoubted. Their altention.it ifi noted is i-liietty concerned with bills relating to tlu1 welfare of women ainl children, pine food, p no mil . an 1 in tu
ed sanitation are some of the l.y'-la*;-
eil results in New Zea'an 1.
In ISurope, Norway was the tirst
country to enfranchise women, due in
a great measure to the indomitable
manner in which the Norwegian women worked for i n'ran liisemon'. The
same might lie said of Finland, In
whose affairs their women have- ever
played a heroic part.
'Ili' speaker ilien considered the situation in Bingland. A brief hi tory
was given of tbo three reform bills of
1832,1867 and 1884. Previous to 183"2
women of property could vote equally
with men. The lirst women's pclitieal
society was organisod in ISG7. Women
have worked for political equality f«»r
4G years, most of tliem by the mo-t
strictly constitutional und intellectual
methods, This loni; delay, while el -
tremely trying to tin- patience has been
highly beneficial in educating women
politically. The women's Ii1xt.i1 a^so-
e-iation alone numbers I 10.000 members
Since 1MI7 an equal franchise bill has
our limes passed ils second reading,
and always wiih largely increased m_
iorities. In a«. other bill this would
practically have assured it- success.
'n 1901) Mrs. Pankhurst formed the
Women's Social and Political Union.
They teennie "militant" In 1905, when
they •, nsidered constitutional methods

"militant-" although attracting most
ittention are yet only o smull ft action
ofthe women suffragists in Bingland,
where then' nre no less than I Oil equal
oeietles.

have some explanation to the charge
we make against the cricketers of his
city, namely thnt they have proved as
iivapableof doing justice to the code
of "cricket" as the Kamloops hall
I players are of living up to the meaning of the term  "play hall."
The  Kamloopa representative might
with truth have said "It is only Nat-
1 ural foi- the KAMLOOPS Cricket team
lo decline  to  play  "Cricket"  or     for
KAMLOOPS     baseball team to refuse
lo play ball, and we would have agreed with him, for  that is  the whole basis of our complaint; but when !"e tries
1 to  ram down  our throats that  it is—
■ "Natural and RIGHT" we beg to'differ
und we are willing  to  allow the  sporting publico! this  Interior  B.C. to judge
betwixt  us.
As to ilie "cheap fans of Rev "Istoke''
it is worth mentioning that whilst the
Kamloops baseball team was so poorly supported by the fans of their home
<*iiy ihat they could not generate s'uf-
ficlenl monoy or enthusiasm to enable
their representatives to finish out ihe
season' in an honorable manner, the
"cheap fans of Revelstoke*' rallied so
loyally io the support of thi' game
here, that the Revelstoke ball team is
today hundreds of 'dollars to thc good
i.n iheseasoo, and have throughout ex-
perience-d no difficulty in fulfilling all
their engagements "financial and
sporting"  to the letter.

Another glaring instance of lack of
sportsmanship displayed by wearers of
the Kamloops co'ors in a second section of athletics,  lies been  brought to
our  notiee.
h appears that at the commencement of the pi'<> nl season, a aeries ot
crir.eet matches were arranged to bc
played between representatives of Revelstoke aud Kamloops, articles were
Kignjd provld.ng lov the division of
the games between th' grounds of th'
respective cities, wiih disposition of
uate monies, and embodying the rules
governing ihe management of ih< fixtures.
Intu cord with this schedule, repre
scntaiicis of Revelstoke "cricketers"
all, journeyed Jown to Kamloops at
considerable expense of time and money, and fulfilled their engagement at
ithat city in the most sportsmanlike
an I honorable manner,
Bui wlie the time came for the Kara
loops CRICKETERS, to act up to

The Ever-Present Gillette
Wherever you see men buying razors, ln drug,
jewelry or hardware stores—wherever you see men
shaving, ln club or Pullman or home—there you
will inevitably find the Gillette Safety Razor
purchased and used.
It has won the approval, almost the affection,
of busy men whose time It saves—of thrifty men
whose cash it saves—of particular men who value
a clean, smooth face—of average men who never
could shave comfortably with any other razor.
That's why over six million men use the
Gillette, and v/hy you can buy Gillette Safety
Razors and Blades at practically every good
Hardware, Jewelry and Drug Store in this town.
Standard Gillette Sets cost $5.00—Pocket Editions
$5.00 to $6.00—Combination Sets $6.50 up. 6 double-
edged blades, 50c.—12 Blades (24 shaving edges),
in nickel-plated box, $1.00.
