Bryan Likely to get the Nomination-Eight Hour Day for
Miners — Fatal Cave in—
Anna Gould Married.
Desvek, Col., July -8.—The Democratic convention opened yesterday.
There is a full attendance of delegates.
It lookB as if Bryan would have an
easy win over all competitors for tlie
nomination.
London, July 8.—The House of
Commons lint night pasted the second
reading of Hie hill under which, five
years hence, all miners in the United
Kingdom will work only eight hours
daily.
Brantforii, July 8—A frightful
accident occurred last night when
Angus McKinuon, with his wife nnd
five children, were killed by a cave-in
of a sewer on Greenwich street.
London, July 8.—Prince Helie De
Sagan and Madame Anna Gould were
married yesterday. Only one clesr
day bad elapsed after their declaration
to marry, as is required by law. They
established a residence in England hy
sta, ing two weeks.
Ottawa, July 8—The Government
proposes to npply a bounty of one and
a hall cents on crude petroleum frmi
Canadian wells to petroleum product
from shales or other substances mined
in Canada.
Seattle, July 8.—A rat, dead from
bubonic plague, was found yesterday
iu a lot not fur from the corner of

31st, 1910.
AIRSHIP BURNED
High Wind Causes Friction and
Ignites Gas.
Calgary, July 7.—The burning of
the air-hip was a serious loss to both
the owners and exhibition management. The actual monetary loss will
be in the neighborhood of $6,000 and
contracts that will ainuout to $25,000,
will have to be throwu up. As the
manager of the ship snys, all they
have left now is their reputation, and
that has been splendidly maintained
while in Calgary.
Tbe high wind was responsible for
the loss, the large bag was heated at
one point by rubbing against the ropes
and this coupled with one of the poles
falling crosswise and bursting the bag,
caused an explosion, which shot the
flames 50 feet high.
Capt. Dallas and Bert Hall were
both hurt, and Hall will be in the
hospital for n few days, his arm having
had the llesh burnt off it.
There was 800 cubic feet of gas in
the bag at the time nnd the noise of
the explosion was heard all over the
grounds. It will not be possible to
make any more flights at the fair, as
it would be impossible to get another
ship here in time.
GAIN A,. HOUR
FRICTION  AT WINNIPEG
Over the Celebration of   the
British  House   of   Commons
Approve of Measure
London, July 7.—The daylight bill,
a measure by which the United Kingdom is to be lured into starting the
day's work one hour ahead of the time
indicated by the sun, has received the
unqunlified blessiug of the select committee of the House of Commons and
all indications point to its becoming
effective next April.
The bill proposed to advance the
clock one hour iu April in order to
promote the greater use of davlight
and to give Hie nias.es one hour more
playtime by light of day.
Tho greatest objection to tlie inens-
uie onnie from the stock exchange
which presented the argument th t its
business with America would be dislocated. For this work only two
hours are available under the present
conditions, and under the proposed
bill this time would be cut in half.
The committee of the House think
this difficulty ran  be obviated by the
Celebration
" Fourth."
Winnipeg, July 7.—A good deal of
ill feeling has developed over the
celebration of the Fourth. A protest
is being made in the press against the
action of the niauager of tie C. P. R.
hotel, the Roynl Alexnndra, in profusely decorating with American bunting, while no attempt waB made to
decorate on Dominion Day. He
explains that he is an American, and
is after American patronage. "This
hotel does not celebrate Dominion
Day," be added.
It is also reported that a prominent
American industrial concern here refused lo give its employees a holiday
on Dominion Duy, nnd that the winks
closed down on lhe Fourtii instead.
Americans are divided among themselves, owing to the action of n committee who leased Elm Park and are
apptienlly exploiting the celebration
there for tlieir persons! pecuniary
benefit hy charging a big em ranee
foe.      Mayor   Ashduwu   and   Consul
Jones ware among the speakers, but
many prominent local Americans
would not Cullutenauce what tiny describe as a sbaisby effort to innkc
money out of the uatioti.il celebration

Longer Hours at Shops as Result of Crop Outlook.
Montreal, July 7.—The Grand
Trunk Railway announced today that
the men working nt the Montreal
shops will hereafter work In hours per
week instead of 40 nnd 45 alternately,
with a possible maximum ol 64 hours
being reached at an early date. This
is the result of the encouraging crop

Winnipeg, July 7.—All the men in

GREATEXHIBIT
Some Very Unique Displays in
the Local Booth—Interest in
District Aroused—As Others
See Us.
The success of the Dominion Fair
at Calgary has been unqualified. Tremendous, enormous, anything that
will typify greatness can be applied to
American Day at the Fair where
24,188 people paid admission at tbe
gates and 15,027 paid to the grandstand for the afternoon and evening
performances. The Revelstoke exhibit still attracts large attention, and
Mr. A. Johnson of the Mail Herald,
who is in charge, says thnt he has
been kept busy answering questions
and explaining the varied attractions
of this district to the thousands of
visitors, tourists, mining men, lumbermen, fruitgrowers, farmers, investors
and others who have evinced interest
in the exhibit. The Cnlgnry Alherlan
has the following to say:
''The Revelstoke exhibit, io cliargo
of A. Johnson of the Mail Herald of
that town, is a Veritable Mecca for
visitors. Besides Bplendid samples of
fruit, the exhibit contains the only
extensive mineral display on the
grounds, iucludii.;.' specimens from
Big Bend, Fergueo , ilbcillewuet and
Trout Lake.
"There is a unique and interesting
exhibit, also of grill and turned work,
tbe product of the Revelstoke Saw
Mill company's mill. As showing tbe
marvellous size of the trees in that
province, stories of which have for
many years jarred the credulity of the
uninitiated, a cedar board is shown in
the Reve'stoke exhibit which measures
48 inches across, and a pine one that
measures an even three feet, dressed
by the Mundy Lumber company.
"The strawberries Irom Revelstoke
are the largest at tbe fair, and tbe
Inrgest most of the visitors have ever
seen, and notwithstanding thu size,
the flavor is superb.
"There ate samples of cherries, cur
rants nnd other fruits, and a successful
appeal is made to the del'ght of the
spot .small hy the displaying of a
caribou bead, said to be one of the
ha.t iu existence, and hides of hear,
grizzly, black and brown, mountain
linn, goat nnd o'hers.
"A mi in pie if wind pto -f siding, n
recent invention, is also shown by the
Kevelstoke Lumber company, nnd is a
perfect and valuable piece of medium
ism. There is'ills,, a line sample ol

LABOR  l).\Y
Kroui all accounts we understand
that the Labor Day celebrations
this year will eclipse any former
attempts in that direction. The
various committees are already
getting busy ami planning out
arrang.-m.iit>. The celebration, it
mav he remembered, last year, was
turned over by tbe general public
\.o the labor organizations at their
request, who made a complete
succes of it, despite the numerous
disapproving comments on the part
of many citizens. However, it is
recognized that Labor Day should
be the day of all days when labor
can hold its demonstration and
celebrate its ■ tuse jusl the -:uin- tithe Orangemen or any otln-r organ*
ization which may choose lo make
a specially of such things. If the
demonstration thia year is lo he a
successful one, than labor .,- .1
whole should turn out and work
together for the common cause und
endeavor by co-operation lo have
as great and enjoyable a day as
possible, There are some who
claim that the methods and ways
of celebrating "Labor" are far
from being In keeping with what
tlie demonstration is- intended to
represent and thai labor in the true
meaning of the word -is applied to
unions, and such organizations is
belittled by the garish processions
and amusements which invariably
take place. These people assert
that Labor Day should be given Up
entirely to studying the question,
to hearing prominent speakers and
listening to their cause being expounded from the point of view
which would interest and impress
them; or else spending a well
earned holiday quietly  with   their

here state that the old colony of
British Columbia did not include
Vancouver Island, itself a separate
colony, formerly known as Vancouver, just us Cuba is known as
Cuba ami nut Cuba Island, When
the mainland was created a colony
the late Queen Victoria named
New Westminster us the oapital—
hence the designation Royal City -
a dignity which that port retained
until I Slid when the two colonies,
which had only hud one governor
between them, were finally united,
the mainland giving its name to
the whole and the Island securing
the capitol. In 1871 the colony
entered the Confederation as the
province of British Columbia*. It
would be well, we think, that the
fiftieth anniversary of the foundation of British Columbia be marked
by sunn. ,-petsiaI celebration and
that the day he not allowed to pass
without   some
this great event, which all true
British Columbians Bhould honor

for the laud of our adoption should
be particularly strong and in no

GOOD MANAGEMENT
Fruit and Produce Exchange of
B. C. Secure Better Prices
L M. Hagar, manager of the Fruit
tfc Produce Exchange of B. C. has been
organizing the fruitgrowers at Mission
who now realize that it is to their
benefit to ship their produce through
the Exchange. Mr. Hngar is proud
of the fact that through the clearing
house organization in the interior,
better prices have been realized for
fruit this year than could have been
obtained in any other way. The laat
shipment of interior fr-.it netted $2
per crate for strawberries, while tlie
Victoria shipment will realize $1 85 lo
the grower. The careful methods of
shipment and tl.e concessions granted
by the Dominion Express company,
togelncr wilh the arrangements conceded by the C P.R , made this price
list possii le. Special attention is
being given to packing, and gradually
tbe shippers ol the province iue corn-
bin it g In place the fruit shipments of
the country on a basis which will add
materially to the fame of this province
as a producer of thu luxuries that are
so much in demand in the provinces
of the northwest
But
hor organizntions there is ton
booze lighting und not enough
earnest work.
This is no time for "liddling.'
it time for net ioi-.
If home nf the present "leudets" of
the Labor movement will inai-t on
standing still (while tin outraged
working class demands Industrial liberty) and spending their energies in
the bar-rooms and dowu-the-line,
then the sooner the rank and file
throw them out of their service the
better fnr themselves and all the rest
of their clues.
It's not a  question   of   temperance
xactly, but of guarding   against men
who    ought   to   know   better   being
chloroformed by the agencies    of   the
enemy.—Trades and Labor Journal.
B. C. FRUIT
The BannerProvince—Flourishing Industry of the West
The steady increase in fruit-growing
in British Columbia is a certain indication of the future importance of
this industry. Its history iB condensed in the facts following:—
1391—Total sorts in fruit     6,437
1901— " "        ....    7,430
1905— " "        .... 22.0OU
1907— " "        ....100,000
Over one million fruit trees were
planted in 1.107, and a still larger
number have been planted in 1908.
Ten years ago British Columbia did
not grow enough fruit to supply her
own population.
In 1902 the fruit shipments aggre
gated 1,956 tons.
In 1907 the fruit shipments aggregated 4,743 tons.
These facts and figures show how
the industry is growing.
The fruit growing lands of British
Columbia are of large extent, and include all the great fertile valleys from
the Kocky Mountains to the Pacific
coast, and from the international
boundsiry to Cariboo.
Apples, pears, cherries, plums and
small fruits grow over the area mentioned.
Peaches, grapes, apricots, aud other
delicate fruits grow to perfection in the
open in the southern districts.
The principal districts in which
fruit is growu ou a large scale are:—
Vancouver Island and adjacent islands,
New Westminster, Lillooet, Yale and
Kootenay.
Some of the favorite sections of
these districts in which fruit growing
is firmly established on a commercial
basis are:—Victoria, Vancouver, Salt
Spring and other islands, Lower Eras
er Valley, Kamloops, Lytton, Ash-
croft, Spence's Bridge, Enderby, Arm
strong, 8imilkamecu,Vernon,Kelowna,
Penticton, Revelstoke, Nelson and
Orand Forks.
A despatch from Halifax remarks
'Rumor is current here among well
informed persons that the Dominion
house will dissolve after the close of
the present session and that the election will be held during the second
week in November."
DEATH LIST IS APPALLING
Figures  for  Fourth  of   July
Fatalities Breaks Record {
New York, July 7.—A Chicago
special to the Tribune says: "Seventy-
one deaths ard 2264 injured, are the
figures in the Chicago Tribune Fourth
of July casualties list up to 11 p. in.
last night. An analysis of the figures
shows the following deaths there were
by fireworks and resulting fires 37, by
cannon 4, by firearms 16, by gunpowder 6, hy toy pistols 2, by runaways 5,
by hoartfailure due to explosions of
cannon crackers 2. Those injured
were: By fireworks 1109, by cannon
212, hy firearms 190, hy gunpowder
551, by torpedoes 60, by t-.y pistols 211
by bomb cannon 50, by runaways 35.
The fire loss was $525,965.
This breaks all records fur deaths
since 1889. The number of deaths this
year reported up to midnight last
night is thirteen more than at the
same time last year. In 1905 fifty-
nine were dead st the same hour. The
number ol injured, however, is 1183
less than iu 1907 and is tlie sma lest
number siuce 1901, when 1813 were
hurt. This is legarded as an indica
tion that the agitation for a "sane
Fourth" is having its effects.
The summer excursion of the Canadian Mining Institute leaves Quebec
on August 24th, and will make the
transcontinental tour visiting all the
leading cities en route. The excursion
will be in RevelBtoke on the afternoon
of September 21st.
SMALL LUMBER CUT
Mills Produce Little Because of
Dull Prairie Country
Vancouver, July 7.—The lumber
situation in the interior is rather dull,
according to W. A. Austie, of Nelson
secretary of the Mountain Lumber
Manufacturers' Association. Mr. An
Btie has been spending a few days bere
to study conditions on the coast.
"Owing to the limited demand from
the new provinces and the lack of ac
tivity in the local market, the saw.
mills at this, the height of the seison,
are only operating to about 50 per
cent of the capacity of their plants.
However, the cut for the year will probably not exceed one-third of the production of last year," said  Mr. An6tie.
"At a recent meeting of the association it was decided to maintain the
present prices. Shipments to outside
markets are only about one-third of
the volume of business done last sea
son. Crop prospects in the new prov
inccs indicate that it will probably re
act favorably on the British Columbia
lumber industry."
Labor Leaders and Booze
There i_ too much boozing going
on in what is known as the Labor
movement.
This is becoming xmore and more
apparent to the members of the rank
and tile
Tho directors of the destiny of
Labor should cut out lighting "hooch."
It's bad for the movement they
represent; it's bad for themselves.
It leaves them open to suspicion.
It gives spies and detectives an opportunity to do all kinds of things.
What is needed at this juncture of
the Labor movement is clear heads
and the right line of action.
There is absolutely no room in the
Labor movement for men who are
under the inlluence of boo/.e all the
time they can spare.
And the sooner tho rank* and file
demand sobrioty aa ono of the qualifications of the men they entrust with
their interests the better for all concerned.
Among the officials of  various  La-
WANTED
The members of B Company, K.M.R.
are hereby notified to attend' for company drill every Thursday at 8 p.m.

and so it happened, the craneman and
pitman shouting to the men to look
out. The men all managed to escape
the huge muss of debus thai, ell with
the liank, except Solan, who was

tlie danger. The slide completely
buried him and it look neatly half an
hour lo dig him out. Solan was
quite dead when they reached him.

found unnecessary as no person waa to
blame. The body was buried at
