Interesting Lectures on Fruit
and Orchard Culture
Professor Thornber, of the agricultural college, Pullman, Wash., and
Mr. M. 11 Dobie, of Victoria, were in
the city yesterday for the purpose of
lecturing to the Farmers' Institute,
fruitgrowers, etc. The lecturers a.o
touring the province on behalf of the
government. H. Cunningham Morris
of the Mail Hekai.ii, took the visitors
in his automobile to inspect several of
the gardens and orchards iu the
vicinity, and they expressed themselves very pleased with what they
Baw and stated that Revelstoke soil
could grow anything and that local
conditions pointed out what a great
future there was before this district il
the people would cultivate properly.
Tbe soil whs exceedingly rich and
well filled with humus. Considerable
surprise was expressed at the size and
quality of garden crops. Iu the evening the lecturer addressed a well
attended meeting in   the  City   Hall.
Mr. Dubie niter urging tbe Farm-
era'Institute in the city to be put una
right basis for the benefit of its members, proce ded to explain the different methods of cultivating soil aud
the best kind of fertilizer required,
stating that nitrogen, potash and
phosphoric ncid were the chief properties! Hint, the soil required lor tbe
best, re nils The value of fertilizers
had been demonstrated by leading
farmers of U 0, He showed how the
fertilizer should be used and in what
quantities and concluded hy slating
that the results of fertilizers depend
on perfection of soil conditions.
. Professor Thornber went, fully into
tbe matter of species of fruit suitable
for this part of the province and
sketched a plan of orchard planting,
saying that apple trees can be planted
Xi let apart wilh plum, peach anil
pear trees as fillers on the diagonal
lines. He explained the best methods
of plantjng and urged the seeming of
good home grown stock. A full explanation of pruning and cutting for
stem and fruit showed thnt Kcel-
st.oke bus much lo learn. Cultivation
ol   orchards led   to  many interesting
details and 11 lull desoripti I insect
pests and the best means of deiltoying
them suggested many questions 0,1
the part ol tlm audience. The lecture
wns [ull of valuable informal inn and
the meeting passed a vole of thankB
to the lecturers.

Westminster Wins From Shamrocks by 6 to 5.
Montreal, July 21—Tbe crowd
was most enthusiastic when the New
Westminster and P ham rook lacrosse
teams, iu rivalry (or the Minto Cup
stepped on the field st four o'clock,
the late hour of starting being due to
the facl that the game is being played
in mid week. Both teams were given
a great reception hy the crowd, the
ovation accorded the New Westminster
team being not a bit less hearty than
the terrific shout which went up when
the familiar green shirts stepped out
on the field.
The challengers started right in to
do business, and tbe first part of the
game was very fast. The New Westminster home showed great speed, but
though they buzzed round and round
tbeir opponents' net they found it ex-
tiemely hard to penetrate the strong
Shamrock defence, and attack after
attack was repulsed. Tbe first quarter
ending even up, both teams securing
one goal each.
Tbe second quarter saw the Royals
start out in the manner which made
the Tecumsehs bow down before tbem
at New Westminster last year. And
the first half of the game ended witb
the Westerners leading by 5 goals to 4.
Confident in tbeir ability to finish
strong the New Westminster boys
went on the field in the second half
prepared to do or die. Their supporters
being jubilant at their success in tbe
first two quarters gave them a great
ovation. The challengers started in
in aggressive fashion and forced tbe
play. The;r superior condition and
the fast pace of the first half began to
tell and the Shamrocks were forced to
the defencesive. After eight minutes
play A Turnbiill gave the Westminster rooters a chance lo make them-
-elves heard, sending in a dandy shot
that scored tbe tenth goal of the
game and put Weitminster two goals
The fourtii and last quarter saw both
teams playing fast and bard, the
Shamrocks putting forth their best
efforts to even up tbe score and if
possible to gain the lead, and tbe
Westminsters struggling to retain
tbeir lead, which won them the first
m.tcb for the Minto Cup, After ten
minutes of itienuous play the Shamrocks succeeded in securing the last
goal of the gsme, making tbe final
score stand 6 to 5 in favor of New

in August.
For some time past the executive
board of ihe Western Canada Irrigation Convention has been holding
regular weekly meetings in Vernon to
make the preliminary arrangements
for the irrigation convention to be
held in that city during the week

A. 0. Wheeler, F. R. G. S. Gives
Interesting Advice
A.  0,   Wheeler,   President   of  the
Alpine Club, was in the city on  Monday.    Mr. Wheeler   is   preparing  for
the carrying out of extensive  surveys
of  the  rich   valleys   throughout tbe
province in order that the government
can eliminate every acre of fruit  land
available.   One of  the  parties  is  lo
cated at 0 mile, near the south  track.
Mr. Wheeler   told  the   MAIL-HERALD
that thii camp of tbe Alpine Club this
year was the most successful  of any,
and the number of those   in  attendance considerably above that of last
year.     The   comfort   of   the    camp
exceeded that experienced in l'.IOIi and
1007 aud the location  at Rogers' Pass
proved  a   remarkably   fine climbing
centre and most conveniently situated
for   the   transport   of  members and
supplies.     Touching   on   the   death
of  Miss   Hatch,   of   Lethbridge, Mr.
Wheeler said that sad as the  occurrence   was, deeply as everyone   sympathised with those to whom the girl
was near and dear, it cannot be denied
tbat   her   death   was    one   of  those
tragedies which are doubly regrettable
becaus :   entirely     unnecessary  since
there was nothing  dnng'-rouu  or even
difficult in the situation for the veriest
novice to negotiate,    lt  was  a   clear
cate of overconlis'r-ice   on   her part
and iu direct oppoti ion to  the   warning called out to her by the  guide  to
wait until be was ready.   Mr. Wheeler
said that every climber should   retain
a very high respect for tbe  mountain
he or she would ascend; " yon  cannot
trifle with the eternal  hills, and just
as surely as yon   indulge  in   reckless
deeds or   minimize   the   tremendous
importance ol care and in negotiating
rock or shale,   ice  or   snow,   just   su
surely will the mountains punish your
temerity     with   disaster."      He   explained   that   climbers   should     put
implicit   obedience   in   their   guides,
which fact is a " sine qua nun,"   while
patience aud caution   are indispensable.    He said that even better guides
would lie secured for lhe forthcoming
ciimps and harder nnil   more  dillicult
peaks essayed.    Tho most  important
step that the Club bad taken was the
decision   In   build    a   club   house   al
Work  to  be   Commenced   in
Kamloops District.
An effort will Im made by lhu l>. -
minion govoriimont to preserve the
fnrnsls on the mouutains oi Iho ICam
loops country so as to conserve th■•
water (or irrigation purposes, Mr. li.
II. Campbell, Superintendent of Forestry, will in n few days meet, Mr.
Lemy, the Dominion government's
forestry representative here, and tin
two will conduct, a tour oi   inspection.
Mr. Campbell states that though a
great portion of the Kamloops district
is used for grazing, the land there is
excellent for agricultural purposes
provided the water could be properly
conserved for irrigation. As, however,
the indiscriminate cutting of timber is
likely to ruin the mountain-top forests for the conserving of water, the
government has deemed it advisable to
appoint a competent official to manage
the cutting of desired timber in a
scientific manner. In some places it
may be necessary to seed or plant, but
whenever timber is cut in the future
it will bave to be taken iu a manner
as to leave sullicient trees lor reseeding
the soil and thus maintain the perpetuity ol tbe forests.
Who will bo appointed to take
charge of these forest reserves is not
yet known.

C. P. R. Tree Planting
The Canadian Pacific Railway will
soon commence tree planting on a
large scale, the idea lieing to furnish a
future supply ol all the timber that
will be ueeded by the railway. Along
both sides of the truck from Winnipeg
to Vancouver, various kinds ot pine
trees will be planted, and every few
years younger treeB will be added to
the plantation, which will be about
fifteen hundred miles long. The
younger trees will act as snow fences
to keep the tracks clear during the
winter. The larger ones will be used
for bridge timbers, telegraph poles, etc.
The smaller trees will also be available
for fence posts and ties.

where co-operation is absolutely

Association. They s-lii.iilil liiu i-

Lumber dealers iii Western Canada who have delayed their orders
this summer nre likely to be put
up against a serious inconvenience
for transportation facilities. The
bright promise for the year on Ilic
prairie lins heen a stimulus for
farmers and other.- in those sections
to place tlieir orders with the
western mills fur lumber whioh lias
hitherto been beyond their reach.
Owing to the outlook for an enormous orop, which is estimated at
over 125,000,000 bushels, a combination of circumstances is arising
lhat has rarely occurred before.
Tho development oi wheal lands is
almost phenomenal, and although
the C.P.R. arc constructing cars in
large quantities the demand is always greater tintn the supply. The

almut to have a spell of prosperity
which means that they will be
large purchasers of all commodities,
the railway company should rise
to the occasion and endeavor lo

so that trade may not be curtailed

Must Have Better Wheels
Railroads tbroujli nit tbe country
are becoming alarmed over tbe rapidly
increasing number of broken cur
wheels, which aro the fr.iinont o.itBe
of disastrous wracks, bhj s a dispatch to
the New York Journal of Comiueroe.
Thnt the problem of broken wheels
has become a serious otic is shown by
the faot Hint I In' Pennsylvania, on its
lines ciihi of Pittsburgh, removed,
during 1907, a total nf 711,000 wheels.
This is au increase of over lifly per
0 'nt. In a few years, anil il is staled
fiat the added expense nl car wheel
r.inrwiil is becoming a serious item in
the operating column, necessitating,
as it tloos, en in taken out of service.
Ho grave lots the problem of a better
wheel become that il has almost taken
the place, for the lime being, at least,
of the problem of a safer steel rail.
It is understood I hut the committee
of experts appointed by the Interstate
Commerce Commission to examiue
the operation of block signals also will
consider the new problem of better
cur wheels.
We once more call the attention
of the city council to the necessity
of enforcing the bye-law which requires that all vehicles using the
Blreejts must carry lights. We cannot understand how the practice of
allowing vehicles lo travel unlit
has lieen so long in vogue. It is
dangerous not only to vehicles
themselves hut also to pedeetrians
who happen to be crossing the
roads. The ^city in a great many
parts is still badly lighted and
vehicles that meet in the darkness
frequently run up against serious
chances of collision nnil subsequent
damage. If there is one regulation
which should be strictly adhered
to. one which should come undei
the jurisdiction of the police is
neglected, it is lhat of vehicle
lights. Revelstoke has grown big
enough and ber trallic suflicientl)
large lo warrant thi.-. The regulation should also include bicycles,
which are among ibe ohiel offenders, This is a matter which affects
the whole city and one which, if
only as a Btep along municipal

Third Annual Meet—Revelstoke
Members Graduate with
Honor—Important Ascents-
Steps Taken to Incorporate.
The third annual camp of lho Alpine Club of Canada came to a close
on Wednesday of last week. The
white village which arose at the summit of Rogers Pass in the heart of the
Selkirks was the scene of great activity and the centre of some good
mountaineering during the pet imi of
the camp, and now after ono short
week the white village has gone as
quickly as it came.
The camp ol 1008 will rank as the
largest, and most important to date.
Tlie at tendance at the Yoho camp in
lllOt! numbered about 80, at tbe Paradise ciimp in 1907 about 100, while
tbis year's a tendance at Roger's Pass
reached 175 01 those atlheoamp
this year iihiuil 70 graduated as active
member* by olimbillll Mount Rogers,
Swiss or Hermit Peaks. Among tboio
were Miss Foote, Miss McKniiane, A.
E. Miller .1. T. Pollock, (I. Haggen,
ami R. R. Cnpclaml, all of whom graduated with honor. Among others
from Revelstoke in attendance at the
camp were Supt Kilpatrick, J. P.
Forde, W. W. Foster, Miss Hobbs,
Miss Lennox, C. Ii. Sissinis and Rev.
J. R. Robertson,
At the annual camp meeting an
important, step was taken seeking incorporation of the club under Dominion-charter. A joint, stock company
of the club was inaugurated for tbe
purpose of building a club house as
headquarters for the club i-i the lianft'
National Park at a cost of abuut iftiOOO.
As the membership is now nearing
600 and the executive work is growing
so large an executive secretary, had to
be appointed who will give his wh .le
time to the work. This office wus
unanimously offered to S. H. Mitchell
of Winnipeg, who indicated his willingness to accept, and whose headquarters will be at the club bouse at
Banff. The colors for the club as
recommended by a special committee
were adopted, viz, green, gray and
white, representing the forest, rock
and snow ol Canadian mountaineering.
A had ye of ibe Maple Leaf waB also
adopted indicating the national character of the club.
There were a number of special
features of the camp tliis year. First
was tbe sad calamity ol the death oi
Mies Hatch ol Lethbridge, while
climbing Mount Avalanche. The fact
that no one waB to blame and that tbe
guide bad taken all necessary precautions against accident, did not
dispel the gloom that at once settled
upon tbe whole camp as Boon as it
became known that one of their loved
members hud been suddenly killed.
None felt inclined to go on with the
work of tbe camp and it was only
after the members begun io see that
faith must he kept with those w o had
come from all points and lhat tbere
was an obligation to carry out the
plans for the year that they reluctantly look . up the work and curried it
forward. To the credit of the club
and the very careful precautions of
Pnsideut Wheeler, this is the lirst
and only serious accident tbat has
befallen the Alpine Club.
The climbing this year was ot a
more dillicult nature than in previous
years, hut in spite of this greater numbers graduated than at either previous
camp. At the close of the camp
President Wheeler made special mention of the dauntless heroism of the
young Canadian climber, and especially tbe Canadian girls, who simply
with great energy and pluck followed
their guides over great snow and
glacial regions and up the mighty
walls of rock, while climbers of other
countries would he examining the
mountains with hesitation and dismay
In addition to tbe regular work ol
the camp, some specially good work
was done. The party that made lhe
best record qualifying on Mount Rogers, was largely made up of I'dies,
among whom were Miss Foote and
Miss McFurlaue of Revelbtoke, whose
work, for beginners, was highly spoken
Another record trip was made hy
two young ladies from llavergal
Ladies' College, Winnipeg, Miss
Adams and Miss Spriugate. These
ladies in company wilh M. P. llridg-
land as guide and llyron Ilaimon of
Banff on Wednesday,,Inly 8th. started
to make the trip to the Astilk u
Glacier. Not only did they make the
Asulkan Glacier, but in addition they
reached the Asulkan Pas's, climbed
summits of Mounts Letlu. Castor and
Pollux, crossed the shoulders of Mts.
Rampart, Dome, and Alton, and
crossed lhe summit of Abbott on the
homeward trip Not expecting to
take snob a trip they had only two
sandwiches ami three prunes each
during their 20 hours journey, and
during l'i hours of which they were on
tbe   rope,     Tbey   arrivod at Glacier
House nt 2 110 a.m. Some alarm was
felt at lho camp over tlieir lung absence und a rescue party wus organised
and ready to Blurt in search when
word came totheonmp that the young
Indies were mfely returned anil sleeping snugly at Glacier elm lot. The
splendid climbing of these two young
ladies lust, year and this year have
placed them in tho very front, rank
with Miss Parker of Winnipeg, and
Miss Hobbs of llevelatoke—four lirst
class lady climbers of the Alpine club.
Two special parties were sent to
scale the mighty pyramid summit of
Sir Donald, 10,800 feet. The lirst
party wae Bent up on Wednesday, July
8th, under Ed. FetlZ, sr., us guide, and
included A. I). McTuvish of Culgary,
J W. Kelly of Winnipeg, A. C. Gordon of England, and Rev. J. R. Rob-
eitson of Revelstoke. Rising at 2 a.m.
ami leaving at 3 a.m. Ihe summit was
reached at 11.30 a.m. As booh as the
party reached the summit the wutcb-
ors Irom Glacier House Hashed forth
heliographic messages which wore
clearly eeen from the summit. The
parly reached Glacier House at 0.1G
p.m. thus taking over 15 liotire for the
trip. Tbe trip was somewhat dillicult and dangerous in places. Cms -
itigja great snow Blope in a couloir
was especially critical. The party was
roped for eleven hours.
A second party made the ascent ol
Sir Donald on Saturday, under Ed.
Kenz, jr., as guide. Tlie party consisted of Rev. A. M. Gordon of Lethbridge, and J. P. Forde and C. B,
Sissonn of Revelstoke, They av .itled
the dangerous snow couloir and lock
the route up a great chimney, but
while they got along quite i-uccess-
fully they reported tho route equally
dangerous, consequently the President
refused to let any other parties make
the ascent at this season of the year.
It was hop d and partly planned
that u small party would attempt the
climb of Mt. Tupper, the most difficult
mountain in the Selkirks. but the
weather being unsettled the attempt
had to be abandoned.
The camp for 1909 will probably
meet at, Lake O'Hara.
