ONE-FIFTH MORE FRUIT.
Secretary Brandrith's View of
B. C. Production.
Th .t over one fifth more fruit than
was produced last year will be marketed by the fruit growers ol tbe province
tbis season, is the opinion of W. J
Brandrith, of Ladner, secretary of the
B. C. Fruit Growers' Association, the
parent body which fathered the provincial fruit exchange which this year
will handle two-third of the total
fruit of British Columbia.
That estimate is a very conservative
one moreover, for rarely if ever has
Mr. Brandrith Been the orchards of
tbe province looking in such splendid
shape as they do this year. He is and
has been engaged in lecturing under

SAVED FROM
AWFUL FATE
Hindoo Mill Hands at Golden
Attempt to put Foreman on
Circular Saw—Brave Rescue
by Young Lad
Enraged because they had been reprimanded for not doing their work in
a proper manner, a gang of Hindoos
employed in the Columbia River Lumber company's mill at tlolden, B.C.,
came within an ace of committing a
horrible crime one day last week,
when they attempted to throw their
white foreman on ono of the bin; circular saws.
The quartet who were responsible
for the assault had been disobeying
instructions for some time as to tlie
lumber being shipped. Their foreman,
a hot tempered Frenchman, caught
them deliberately disobeying orders in
connection . with some lumber being
cut. He gave tbem a severe reprimand and threatened tbem with discharge. At this tbey became half
crazed with anger, and seizing the
foreman, were in the act ol carrying
bim over to the big circular saw. Just
at this juncture another young white
employee in the mill came in Nerved
by fear when he saw what the Hindoos were about to do, he picked up a
slab and wielded it witb such cfl'eot
tbat he laid out tbiee of the four Hindoos, and the remaining one turned
on the young lad and chased him, but
he easily made bis escape.
The foreman was uninjured, but bad
it not been for the opportune arrival
of bis fellow white man, the Frenchman would have met a horrible death
by being sawn in two.
back   up,   and   started   down along packmg ftnd pruning.    His work had
track at an ever-increasing speed. A
pastcngerexpressdue here at 10 o'clock
was two hours late, snd as it rounded
tbe curve at Murray's cut and came
down tbe grade at full speed, it met
the runaway engine in Iront of the
Keenan Lumber Company's works.
The mail, express and baggage cars
caught fire and *ith their contents
were destroyed, snd the mail clerk and
express messenger rescued with difficulty ; the baggageman was also released just as the fire reached him, at
one time it was thought it would be
necessary to cut off his arm to save
him.

Shortens Time to Ft. George
Abhcroft, Mav 29—The steamer
Charlotte, in her first trip up tbe
Fraser to Fort George, had no trouble
in negotiating the distance and passed
through the canyon where the reefs
and rocks were blasted last winter,
without experiencing any trouble.
With the Cariboo Automobile company making regular trips to Quesnel
and Soda Creek and also the stage
line, it will now only be a mutter nl
four or five days' travel to reach Fort
George from Asbcroft.
PECULIAR EVIDENCE

Now is the time for the fruit grower
in embryo to start in, according to
Mr. Brandrith. Many have recognized
this and much additional land will be
I placed under orchard this year. Last
i year, some 1,000,000 new fruit trees
were planted.
THEY ARE~AMBITIOUS
The Provincial Methodists Will
Raise $100,000 for Education
At a session ol the B. C. Methodist
conference, held in Vancouver, recently, a resolution to raise a sum of
$100,000 for educational purposes within tbis province was carried without a
dissenting vote.
Of this sum $40,000 will be expended
in liquidating the liabilities of Columbian college, in buying more lots there
to round out the college property, and
to finish the equipment of the gymnasium. The remaining $60,000 will
provide the necessary funds to start a
new theological college in affiliation
with the provincial university, when
the location of the latter is determined.
SMART CAPTURE
Horse  Thief   Caught
Here by Local Police
A young man calling himself J. J.
Curry, but supposed to be tbe same
party who under the name of W.
Barnhardt obtained possession of a
horse and buggy from a New Westminster man named S. H. Thompson
about two weeks ago, was placed under
arrest in tbis city by the local police
on Saturday, tbe police notifying New
Westminster that they were holding.
Curry for identification. Curry appears to bave been the victim of a
neat plot laid for his capture by the
city police who suspected his presence
io Revelstoke. Some few days ago 11
man said to be Curry wrote to a farmer at Ruskiu where tbe h"rse and
buggy bsid been left some days previous, offering to sell him the 1 tit fit at
reasonable price. The farmer notified
the police who instructed him to reply
to the writer at the same time notifying tbe Revelstoke postmaster to
detain any person applying for mail
addressed to that party. Curry requested another man to inquire for
letters addre<sed to bis name. Tbis
obliging friend was immediately placed
under arrest on inquiring at the post
office wicket, a telegram being sent to
New Westminster to that effect. The
arrested man however proved that he
was not the man wanted, the New
Westminster police being accordingly
notified. Through the assistance of
the first man arrested the real culprit
was finally landed, and detective Brad
shaw at once wired (or, who on Monday night relieved tbe city gaol of its
prisoner and escorted his man to New
Westminster.

LABOR CHANCES IN B. C.
When the government is busy
campaigning for settlers in the
west, says the Commercial, British
Columbia should not be forgotten.
Although the grain-growing opportunities are chiefly in the prairie
provinces, British Columbia has
chances for several industries. It
is very resourceful in timber, mineral, fisheries, fruit growing, etc
There iB a great cry there for laborers of the class we have in Central
Canada. They do not seem to
want Chinaman, Jap or Hindu,
and the best way to keep them out
is to secure enough white labor.
Just as long us there are openings
left for the Orientals they will
come to fill them.
This is a good time to get laborers in Winnipeg, for instance, to
go to British Columbia. There
are thousands coming in here from
the east and south, and many of
them are yet idle. They will go
to the first part of the country that
will offer them inducements. British Columbia affords work both
summer and winter in a way that
the prairies do not. Lumbering is
carried on in the winter, and mining goes on extensively all the time.
Out there is not a caBe of working
on farms all summer and going
elsewhere when winter sets in.
British Columbia does not experience a severe winter, and, taking everything into consideration,
it is a wonder that tbere should be
any scarcity of white labor there.
It is a land full of opportunities
and undoubtedly has a vast natural
wealth not yet developed. If there
are any surplus laborers in Manitoba, the government should advise
them of the chances offering in
British Columbia.
A MAN OF STRENGTH
Picture of Sir T. Shaughnessy
by Harold Begbie
The man who most impressed me
(or strength and power among the
pilots of Canada's destiny is tbe Irish-
American President of the Canadian
Pacific railway, Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, writes Harold Begbie in one of
his articles of his Canadian tour.
Here is a man almost bloodless in the
intensity of his devotion to material
ends. He does not please, he does not
charm, be does not delight; but he
interests. No man, however con-
teniptuous of commercialism, could
fail to be impressed by his masterful
personality. He is a fair-skinned
man, above tbe medium height, upright, square shouldered, with head
carried vigorously erect. The oval
face is like a soldier's—clean cut,
aquiline, a little choleric in tbe coloring. The eyes are small and penetrating, with the line of the low-hanging upperlids sharply defined, giving
the appearance of command and
impatience of delay. The lips are
completely hidden by a sandy moustache and imperial. When be speaks
he opens his mouth wide and the
voice issues sharply nnd impatiently,
raucous and grating in tone, strident,
too, rising above the burr of conversation like the tearing of a sow.
He directs tbe affairs of the greatest
railway concern in the world, and he
would direct with an equal success the
affairs of the British Empire, Humanity is for him not a book, but a
machine. He bothers not his mind
witb uncertain problems of individuality, but agrees witb Winwood Reatle
tbat man in tbe muse is a mathematical certainty. He pays wages us
be distributes grease and oil But
there is dunderbeaded pride in his
autocracy. He believes iu tbe wisdom
of trade unionB.     He   is   willing   to

ing of the  United  ..tales  national
board of tire  underwriters  showed
that the property ions from  tire in
the United .States ian year was just
short of two hundred  million  dollars.   >uch a sum means  a heavy
tax on even a rich countrv. Canada
would profit much from learning to
be careful,  first   in   building  and
then   in taking   care   of  what  is
built.    In   cities,  such  as   Revelstoke.   where   the   buildings    are
chiefly composed of wood,  there is
always the danger of  fire  present,
which enemy if perhaps  the   worst
enemy that might  attack us.    U'e
have the nucleus   of   a   good   fire
brigade and it will be to our inter-
f?ts to conserve the enthusiasm   of
its memliers and  keep  it   together.
No man will  join   the   brigade for
what he can get out of it  ami he is
simply impelled hy a public spirit,
of which he may   not   himself   lie
conscious and  a   latent desire for
adventure and the spice of  danger.
The   fire  hoys,  actuated  solely by
the   desire   to   keep    the  brigade
going,deaerve even more encouragement than they get  at  Ihe present
from   lhe  public  seeing  that  the
oity jiracjtically  depends on  their
work for its safety.    We are thankful to say tbat we have been  free
from any disastrous  tiro for some
time,    thanks     lo    the    energies
of the brigade,  who  are alive to
their work and to what is expected
of tbem.     We are glad to see that
the City Council, realizing tbat the
city brigades are.uch an important

B.C. MINERAL
PRODUCTION
Report of Minister of Mines for
Past Year Shows a Large
Increase — West Kootenay
District.
The report of the Minister of Mines
for the year has lirst been issued from
the government printing otlice. It
shows gratifying production last year
exceeding the previous twelve months
by nearly one million dollars.
1114,619,729, the greatest amount de
rived from any one mineral, the next
most important being coal, the total
gross value of which, combined with
that of coke, is $86,972,611, followed
by copper at $43,713,122, silver at
$27,28(1,833, and leid at $1»,!U7,I«7.
The values of the total production
of the mines of the province for each
year from 1890 to 1907, b«B increased
nearly ten fold, and bas now reached
a productinn, tor the past, year, valued
at $25,882,560, or more than double
what it was in 1899.
The following is tho report of R.
Gordon, Gold Commissioner of the
Revelstoke, Trout  Luke and Lardeau
EVA FLUME, CAMBORNE, B. C.
The Provincial mineralogist in summing up the record for 1907 eays:
The value of the mineral products
of the province tor tbe year 1907 is
greater than that for any preceding
year, and amounts to $26,882,560,
showing an increase over the last year
of $902,014, equivalent to au increase
of 3.6 per cent and is greater than tl e
output of 1905 about 15.2 per cent.,
and 36 3 per cent, greater than that of
1904.
An analysis of the returns shows
that this increase is due to the greater
tonnage of lowgrade ore mined in the
boundary district, and also to an increased tonnage from tbe collierie-,
b ith in coal and coke.
The market price (or all the nelals
was unususil|y high for the first part
of the year, but li II so low during the
last half ol the year lhat the average
market price fur 1907 was v-ry little,
il any, higher than lhat of 1906.
The tonnage of '-re mined in the
province during the year 1H07, delusive ol coal, was 1,804,114 tons. This
total tonnage was produced by the
various^ districts in lhe following proportions: Boundary, 65.1 peicentage
of total; Rossland, 16.8; Coast,4.7;
Fort Steele M.D., 8,6; all other districts, 5.8.
The number of mines from which
shipments were made in ll|i>7 was 147;
but of these only 72 shipped more
than 100 tons eacb during the year.
There were in tbe province 36 mines
that shipped  in   excess of  1,000 tons
Mining Division for year ending Dec.
31, 1907:
"The year has shown no very maiked development either in qnartz or
placer mining, owing principally to
lack of capital with which to prosecute work and also to luck of In importation   facilities    through sut   tbe
bas i.luo done a good deal of development work aud although shut down
just now owing to financial stringency,
is expected to re commence operations
in tlu early spring. The owners of
the Lucky Jack mineral claim (Lardeau division) are installing a small
stamp mill on their property and will
be in a position to test its value during
the year.
"In the Trout Lake diitrict the Silver Cup and Broadview have made
very good showings and with increased
shipping facilities that locality will
become a good revenue producer. The
outlook for the whole district is, on
the whole, very encouraging and with
the advent of capital and good management, will undoubtedly c une to
the front in a very few years."

Salmon Aiim, June 2.—Chicago capitalists are carrying out development
work upon some mineral claims in the
mountains bordering tbe eastern shore
of Lake Shuswap about nine miles

Spurious Money in Free Circulation.
British Columbia is being visited
with (hat curse which has »n long
been withheld from it and which has
been one ol tbe greatest enr-es ol all
c mil lies since men decided on a legal
tender for guilds. Many towns and cities
of tbe province have been troubled
wit h $5 gold pieces, and the "queer"
money »\\, ars to gradually be working towards Revelstoke, As yet, as
fiira-i «e know and nan ascertain,
none of this bud money has been fmind
in the city, but it might appear at any
time. The coins arc $5 United States
gold pieces, or rather they are perfect
imitations nf the American coin, but
are made o' lead and are plated. The
only way they can lie distinguished
from good money is by the ring, and
there they fill down. Advices from
Alberta state that these coins have
been discovered in several cities there
and Ihe police at different points iu
the province have been instructed ol
the presence ol the counterfeit coins
and arc working on some clues which
they have picked up and which promise to lead to something material
before long.
