THE FRUIT INDUSTRY
Promises to Assume Splendid
Proportions During 1908.
The outlook for fruitgrowers in the
Kootenay- and in all British Columbia
was never better than it is now. The
fruit season of 1908 is certain, unless
unexpected and inconceivable disaster
occurs, to lar eclipse any previous
year.
As was anticipated by its promoters
the organization ol the fruit exchange
has had the immediate effect of enabling the management of the district associations, by whose affiliation it is
formed, to deal directly and on lar
more favorable terms than before, with
the dealers in tbe Northwest, British
Columbia's nearest and best market.
Practically all tbe important organization of fruit growers in  the  whole
province  are   now   united,   and   the
headquarters at Revelstoke will ill ij5
and market the whole product.
Orders have already been received
from responsible dealers in tbe Northwestern centres, sullicient in amount
to handle the whole output of the province, calculated from the production
of any year to date.
Nothing could be more satisfactory.
All the growers have to do is to raise
and harvest tbe fruit and ship it to
Revelstoke. The exchange will do tbe
rest, and all proceeds will be distributed.
It is practically certain, also, that
the local markets in the province, will
be'mucb better tbis year than formerly.
There will also be tbe new market at
Prince Rupert which will have a large
aod steady demand.
II tbe expectations of tbe promoters
ol tbe exohauge are realised this year
it cannot fail to result in such a stim.

of land in British Columbia as will
make even the growth ol tbe last few
years look insigniflosnt.

INTERESTING COMPETITION
Cricket Club run Limerick Contest—Handsome Prizes
One of the most unique and inter
eating competitions held in Revelstoke
is now underway and has been for over
six weeks, and is being run under the
auspices of tbe Revelstoke cricket club.
Tbe competition consists of three
Limericks which are supplied all but
the last line which has to be furnished
by those entering into the competition.
Limerioks bave been the popular
craze this year and have, in many
cities caused much excitement and
interest. Iu the competition the
charge for one sheet containing tbe
three Limericks is 60 cents and these
competition sheets may be purchased
from any ol tbe stores. Rules and
regulations can also be obtained at
any of the stores, so that there Bhould
be no difficulty at all in trying for a
prite. As regards prizes all tbe stores
and commercial men have contributed
handsomely to the list, and a valuable
collection of prizes ie being offered
which should be in itself a sufficient
incentive to enter the competition.
The cause is a good and deserving one
and tbe proceeds will be given to the
orioket club in order to carry on their
summer's work. For the encourage*,
ment of all sport Revelstoke citizens
should do their utmost.for sport is one
of the chief things which go to make
life, elevate the etanJard of growth
and establish that harmony of purpose which is the essential of every
game. The well known saying "Waterloo waB won on the playing fields of
Eton College," can be very well turned
to ourselves. We pride ourselves on
our sporting instinct and we pride
ourselves moreover on our success in
all games and the excellence attained
by those who individually go in for
them. Tbe cricket club though or
ganized but a short while has many
devotees and enthusiasts aud it is
through their energy tbat tbis compe
tition bas been prepared. Fifty cents
is but a small sum to spend on chance
and a very good chance at that.

THE REVELSTOKE EXHIBIT
Now that the Board of Trade
bave decided to go ahead with the
matter of arranging an exhibit representative of Revelstoke Industries at lhe Dominion Fair in
Calgary from June 29th to July
9th, the importance of co-operation I accrui, would we
bv every citizen to insure  the success of the undertaking  cannot  be
over   estimated.     There   will   be
exhibits from Alberta.   Saskatchewan, as well as points ie B. C, and
if we are to  make   anything  of   a
ehowing amongst the whole  aggregate, the committees  appointed   to
carry out the organizing of  an exhibit, should lose no time in getting
down to business and securing what
material is and will   be available,
so that a rough outline of the whole
may be prepared.     This is an opportunity for advertising the valuen
possibilities, and advantages of   the
Revelstoke district,  and one which
should be made   the  best possible
use oj in order that this section  as
well ae the whole of the  Kootenay
country may   be   thoroughly   expounded    and    its    potentialities
poured into the   ears   of   farmers,
home seekers and investors who are
looking around for a suitable locality in which to   settle   down.     It
should be the aim and ambition of
every   citizen   here   to   secure  as
creditable and strikingan exhibit as
possible, and see  that   Revelstoke
shall take her place along   side of
other districts in   a   manner   that
will compare well with and not be
disparaged by those of more extensive   sections,   who   lay   claim to
larger areas for   Agricultural   pur-

SPRING CLEANING
Now that the snow has disappeared sufficiently to enable the
people to see just what collects, in
the way of garbage and refuse
in back yards, lanes and even in
our main thoroughfares during the
winter, it is beholden to every
citizen to do his part in the general
clearing and cleaning up before the
spring is upon ua. The accumulation of the winter months iB far
more than is really imagined.
i.i ttie or no effort has, as yet been
iiinile, towards commencing the
annual clean-up, and after a walk
round the various streets and lanes
the only logical conclusion one can
arrive at is that the sooner the
work is commenced the better for
the community at large. There is
no apparent reason why even in
winter rubbish should accumulate
all over the city and a little more
evidence of public spirit on the
part of our citizens would go a
long way to remedy matters. In
many cities a day is set apart for a
general cleaning and adds much to
a city's attractiveness.
There is no excuse  for the papei
and rubbish one sees  piled   up   on
all side- and an   effort   should   be
made to put a stop to it.    Signs ol

said that Revelstoke as a  city  has
got into a groove and  is   plodding
along in the same old   rut.     Our
citizens should expand and  cultivate new ideas, new  Schemes,   new

are essayed and her  business  im ri

CANADIAN
GLACIERS
Vast Moving  Seas> of   Ice
Interesting   Observations-
The lllecillewaet  Ice Field.
Of nil the phenomena that attract
the lover and student of nature In
high mountains, possibly none is mora
Interfiling or appeals inure strongly
to the   imagination   than the glaciers.
These vimt bodies of ieo, slowly mean*
(lering from the highest peaks mul
snow submerged valleys, culling lo
mind that epoch when the pulur ieo
cup covered the who'e ol Canada und
the northern part of lhe United StuloB
ever pushing unwiird with re.-istl.ss
force, give US a plot ure III the operation and unclungialilones' of ita:mul
luue, which ie in mt impressive.
Whilst the glaciers of the Canadian
Selkirk's and Rockies cannot oompare
in site with those ul Alaska aud other
far northern latitudes, there are pro
I iihl)' no other mountain ranges In
the world where conditions are more
favorable for glacial study and ol sir-
vstiono. All the various types may he
Seen, and their location is audi that
they may be viBitcd with the greatest
ease by the tourist, and a continuation of observations made and records
kept, which in the future will be ol
the greatest value in solving the many
problems that are as yet unanswered
respecting the action of glaciers.
Broadly speaking, a glacier may be
said to be a mass of ice of sufficient
volume to flow down from an elevation. With tbe heavy precipitation
of snow characteristic of high mountain regions, it isone of the provisions
of nature by which an indefinite accumulation of miow and ice can not
occur. Cutitiiiii.il precipitation of
snow on tbe mountains causes the
mass to solidify into thick ioe which
would inc.ease year by year unless
nature did not come to the rescue.
Witb the increasing pressure caused
by tbe weight of ice, to which is added
the attract! n of grsvitation, the ice
starts to flow, slowly but surely. It is
bard to believe that so brittle a sub
stance as ice can Howl Yet it does,
and doubtless the internal struoture of
the ioe aids in tbis. The ice under
pressure is more or less plastic and
tbe pressure exerted on these great
bodies cf ice by the weight above is
tremendous and tbeir onward motion
is resistless. Its effects are seen in the
way in which ledges ol the hardest
rook are smoothed, oftentimes most
beautifully polished and grooved by
the ploughing over tbe r surface ol
rocks and stones caught in the ice.
The region of transformation of snow
into ice is called tbe Neve. There is
still another and distinct apparent
movement of glacier., which is even
more evident. Naturally when the
icj stream reaches^ the lower and
warmer altitudes, melting goes on
more rapidly, until finally the end of
the ice wastes away and a stream or
river ensues. Now, it is for only a
very abort time in each year, in the
latitude thnt we are considering here
tbat the temperature is such that the
amount ol daily melting of ice exactly
corresponds with the daily advance
produced by the flow of the glacier.
Hence it is that we that an us. illation
of the tongue or snout of the glacier
which in winter will gradually extend
further down the valley, whilst in
sutnmei it will gradually retreat. This
same - result ol advance aud retreat
may also be produced hy protracted
changes of weather conditions as more
or less precipitation, higher or lower
means annual temperature. Such
must last, however, for terms of years
in order to produce anything more
than a temporary effect upon the
glacier. This characteristic has long
been noted and it is found lhat
usually through long cycles varying
Irom a dozen up to thirty or more
years, the glaciers ol a given region
will show each year a uet advance and
then . again lor a succeeding period
successive annual recessions. Our
Canadian glaciers are no exception to
this rule, and during the time they
have been observed, retreat has been
tbe almost universal movement. The
proximity of the great lllecillewaet
Glacier to the Glacier House and tbe
ease with which it can be reached has
oaused this vast ice field to be more
visited and studied than any other.
Its 1 ication and size have attracted
attention ever since the opening of the
O.l'.R. and Irom 1887 to tbe present
time continuous observations and
records have been made. The folio a -
ing table prepared from observations
of the Rev. W. S. Green, and G. Vaux,
J. V. and W. 8. Vaux gins an interesting idea of tbe reoesiiun of the Ille-
oillewaet Glacier:

nine, whioh were employed to mark

by the ice in its advance, entirely
obliterating the primary bare line for
measurements. The daily motion of
this glacier averages six inches. Besides tho scientific interest which is
attached to the glaciers, their beauty
and grandeur appeals to the mind in
a manner that only those who have
visited them, who have inhaled deep

At times they clothe themselves in

in the gorgeous colors of evening; and

DOMINION  FAIR
British Columbia to  be
Represented
In a letter to the Board of Trade
Mr. E. L. Richardson, managorof the
Calgary Dominion Fair says that 40
districts and government exhibits
have already been booked for the Dominion exhibition from points in British Columbia and Saskatchewan and
Alberta. These displays will fill a
building, the agricultural hall, 160x80
feet and will probably be tbe first
aggregate display of its kind in Canada. The space is granted free and the
following prizes are being offered:—
1st, $200; 2nd, $150; 3rd, $125; 4th
$100; 5th, $75; 6lb, $50; and $20 to
each ol the balance ol the exhibits.
Freight nnd all expenses are to be
paid by exhibitors, but three pauses
will be granted to each exhibit. The
plan of tbe building shows a large
handsome structure, the interior arrangements being carefully planned so
as to give equal space to all. Revelstoke, Nelson, Kelowna, Vernou,
Cranlirook and Chilliwack will represent British Columbia besides tbe B.
C. Government exhibits. The pace
allotted to each district measures 8Jx
16 feet.
DOMINION TIMBER ORDER
Lumbermen may Lose Leases
if Compelled to Saw Logs.
Vancouvek, March 31.—Owners of
timber lands in B. C, whether provincial or Dominion, are much interested
in the injunction issued from Ottawa,
that forthwith lessees of Dominion
lands must start logging off each
leasehold and must also build and
operate saw mills. The question waB
discussed by the B. C. lumber and
Shingle association.
Timber lands in the railway belt of
the Lower Fraser are particularly
affected. It is pointed out by the
lumbermen that in the great maj irity
of cases these leaseholds are held hy
men who have never expected an
order lor the immediate and continuous logging, and they are not financially in a position to comply with it
The result would be that they would
lose their holdings.
The Federal government had intimated that it might reconsider the
order that the mills should be built to
cut timber taken off Dominion lands,
aud permit lessees to soil tho mills
already built.

sunk behind tbe grand old peaks, they
catch the first gleam of returning
light and their gilded tops hersld the
coming morn. The elements combine
tu pay tribute to such matchless
beauty. The sun steals through the
sparkling fountains which flutter over
the crystal surface in summer and the
hues of the rainbow betray the sun's
warm kiss.    In winter tbs hoar frosts
turning to normal conditions. On
Wednesday last the Wall Street
market was at its highest since the
slump.
Mining investments more than any
other class are attracting active
attention. The rise in copper has
revived confidence in the future of
copper stocks. Tbe mines are planning   big   things.   Tbe Granby will

The I'ekin Gazette, the publication
of whioh, according to a recent telegram has been suspended, is a venerable patriarch among newspapers, is
it is said to have made its first appearance something like one thousand
years ago, but it is not, as is often
stated, the oldest journal in the world.
This distinction tubings to the Tsing-
Po, or Pekin News, which was founded
nearly twelve centimes ago, and was
venerable when its yonngest rival, tbe
Gazette was cradled. Indeed, M.
Huart, French consul at Canton,
a still earlier birth for the News,
which he says was founded early in the
sixteenth century, 800 years before a
newspaper was known in Europe.
The Tsing-Po, which is the Times of
China, now appears as a book of 24
pages, octavo size, tied in a yellow
cover by two knots of rioe psper and
its price is about 20oeots.

Another disreputable farce was indicted on the theatre going public ol
Revelstoke en Monday in a low type
ol melodrama called "No Mo'her to

called such, consisted of several sets
and scenes depicting tho lowest and
must criminal typo of life that oan be
imagined. How any travelling company can come down to Btich a depraved and disgusting production is
haul to imagine and the piece on Monday showed tho vilest and worst side
ot human character that could possibly he Hfen, The plot was weak, unreal and lewd, a large amount ol
shooting, slabbing, brawling and immoral suggestions being mixed up
with unseemly noise and talk. It IS
Irom such depraved plays as these
that tho rising generation gain a false
and wrong conception of life and it is
certainly disgraceful to have our children and women folk submitted to
such lowering and criminal scenes as
were placed la-fore the publio on Mon
day. The managcinont should, in
good faith to their patrons, avoid a
repetition of a production of lhat de
soription, which is injurious to the
morals of our children and disgusting
to the citizens at large. Although

Mr. Tapping in this oase was misled
