openly on Sunday without let or

license fee of $ll>0 is payable and inspection is provided for.

Members Indignant at Gover-
ment over Mr. Wheeler
The value of the Alpine Club ol
Canada to the country is now so well
established that argume ts in favor ol
its existence are no longer necessary,
and should anything happen which
would mean tbat the Club would have
to go out ol existence, even temporarily, it would be nothing lees than a
national setback. It can therefore be
imagined with wbat feelioge the news
has been received that the President
of tbe Alpine Club, A.O.Wheeler, and
his stall' are not to be permitted to
attend the annual camp ibis year, tbe
reason given being that* his services
will be required all season on Departmental work. At this stage of the
Club's history Mr. Wheeler's presence
at tbe camp is an absolute necessity,
and unless he is permitted to attend,
to organize and manage the camp it
will bave to be abandoned altogether.
In addition to tbe regular attendance
at the camp, which is expected to be
greater than ever this year, a number of members of the British Association, which will be meeting in
Winnipeg tbis year, as well as prominent members ol the English Alpine
Club and other men of world-wide
lame, have accepted the Club's invitation to attend tbe annual camp, and
it tbe Club is forced to cancel the
invitation to these distiuguisbed men
because tbe Department cannot afford
to allow one ol its officials and bis
staff to spend ten days tbere il is very
apt to make these distinguished
foreigners wonder what kind of an
institution the Government of the
Dominion of Canada is. And not only
will the country lose the splendid advertisement it would otherwise obtain,
but it will advertise itself as a community which haa asset which is worth
millions of dollars annually, if properly used, bul wbicb it has not the
•eme to take advantage ol.   Pressure
is being brought to hear on the De
partment to have the present arrange
ments changed to allow of Mr. Wheel
er's attendance at the camp, as in
former years, steps to this end being
taken by the local centers of the Club
at Revelstoke, Vancouver, l.ethbridge,
Winnipeg and Toronto, as well as by
the executive ol the Alpine Cluh at

ol a communication from the Minister
of Education, Victoria, stating that
tbe government has arranged for an

A. S.  Goodeve. M.P.. Presses
Revelstoke's Claims
The secretary of the Board of Trade
had informed us that he is in receipt
of a letter from Mr. A. 8. Goodeve,
M.P., at Ottawa for Kootenay, relative
to matters of local interest. Among
the chief items is the question ul the
Arrowhead and Kootenay Railway,
Mr. Goodeve slates thai he has succeeded in having amendments made
to tho hill ly which they will he compelled to construct 15 per cent ul the
ruad immediately. Mr. (iuudeve put
up a hard fight fur this amendment
eventually gaining his puint. The
amendment is as lolloivs:
The Kootenay it Arrowhead Railway
Company shall, within two years after
the passing of this act, construct 15
per cent of the mi cage of the uncon
structed portion of the railway which
it wai authorized by Section 7 of
Chapter 10 of the Statutes ol 1901 to
construct and shall complete the suid
railways and put them in operation
within (ive years and if the said 15
per cent ol mileage is not constructed
and il the said railways are not completed and put in operation within the
said periodi respectively, the powers
ot construction conlerred upon tbe
said company by Parliament shall
cease and be null and void as respects
ao much ol Ihe said railways its theu
remain uncompleted.
In reference to the town wharl Mr.
Goodeve stated that he would urge the
matter when the Government went
into supplies fur ti. C. He said mure-
over that the Minister of the Interior,
on grounds ot eoonomy, has decided to
du nothing in regard to the various
claims in Kootenay for wharves, as
the reserve would not warrant it Had
tbe matter been brought tip earlier in
the session an amount might have
beeu placed in the supplenientuiy
estimates. Iu these matters, he said,
be was getting the unanimous support of all the western members.
With reference to the eight-hour
bill, Mr. Goodeve stated that tbe government will allow thiB to come to a
vote this session.
F. C. Campbell of Trout Lake
to be Government Agent
The provincial executive has decided to open a government agency in
tbe Peace River district. Hitnerto
there has been no agent ol the provincial administration in that country,
but as settlers are now beginning tu
gu in, it is necessary tu bave a representative thi re. There has been u
large influx uf peuple lately into the
Pjuce Guupee cutiutry tu the south ol
tbe Peace River, but so far settlement
has been dillicult.
The Government Agent selected for
the post is Fred C. Campbell, lur many
years mining recurder at Trout Lake,
having succeeded the Hun riiomas
Taylur when the latter gentleman
gave up the appuiiitmeut. Mr. Campbell is one of the hest known mining
men in the Lardeau and Revelsioke
and one of the pioneers uf the pro
viuce. Iu the Peace River country-
Mr. Campbell will be in a position
whence frequent, communication with
the government, will be impossible so
he will be clothed with large powers.
He will combine iu his single person
the (unctiuuB uf guvernment agent,

Provincial Constable McVickara will
accompany Mr. Campbell to his now
post. Mr. McVickors is oue of Revelstoke's uld timer>, bciug provincial
constable in this city abuut ten years

The post is situated iu the middle
of vast territory of large, natural resources, a big slice ul which bas been

as it has been eleurly intimated by
lurye purchasers on the prairies
that they will not buy from individual shippers. The opportunities for recourso in case of inferior
fruit or bad packing are eliminated
and a strong central excliange is
recognised by tbe buyers at least to
be the solution of the problem as
far as the relations of seller anil
buyer are concerned.
While there may exist some unfounded prejudise against the relict
of the B. (J. Exchange this cannot
affect the fact that Kevelstoke is
the natural shipping center for all
tbe fruit areas of the Interior.
Tapping, as it does, the growing
industrial centres of the Kootenays
and the Boundary country and on
the main line over which the fruit
from the Okanagans and the Coast
oiusi be shipped it would seem to
be geographically the single marketing depot from which all the
contributions of the various parts
ol the province may profitably be
The refusal of the government to
make a grant to the local excliange
at tho instigation of other institutes
would not appear to be justitied
and the instigation itself was not
one of the wisest ways to overcome
the failures of the past. Moreover,
the establishment of exchanges at
the Coast, in the Okanagan Valley
and in the Kootenays—as is proposed—does not commend itself as
a step in the direction of the most
economical handling of the large
tonnage tbat will have to be transported during_,the coming summer.

Curious things these appeals to the
throne as an excuse for a holiday-
jaunt to the old country. In the
Premier's case it was the question
of Better Terms—and by the way,
what Iiiib become of that issue as

Federal governments'!1 With Mr.
Bowser it is the Indian reserve
question with a possible side-crack
at tbe fishery rights of the province.

It is not likely that any ol the
other members of the Cabinet will
essay a voyage across the hig pond
though the Minister of Education
is nexl in line for such a jaunt.

scarcely venture so far away from

Cotton Is too busy watching the
rise of his skyscrapers in Vancouver. Hon. Captain Tatlow makes
no excuse for such a trip; he simply goes " 'Oiue" for a visit. Should

present—the chief members of the

Simply Incredible
A remarkable return has been laid
on tbe tahle of the House at Ottawa
by Hon. A. B. Ayleswortb in regard
to the escape ol Bill Miner, the road
agent, from New Westminster penitentiary. Tbe return, which was
aeked for by J. D. Taylor, one of
British Columbia's new members,
shows beyond doubt that the celebrated train robber escaped through
the ciuiiiiving of utliciaIs.
The most interesting section of tbe
whole viilutniiiuus page return is the
account of an interview Instructor
Geo. McKenzie bad with Bill Miner a
short time previous to his escape.
This interview tends to bear out the
story that it was the C.P.K. which
secured Miner's escape in return for
bis surrendering to tbe company certain Australian bonds valued at fifty
thousand p unds sterling.—Ex.

ami what .- perhaps of more mo-
mei . these, a lack of genuine
appreciation   ol   what   a properly
irg ii teed, well mpported and well
managed exchange can mean,
are mor" responsible. The experience ol the B. C. Kxchurge
wns not an isolated or singular
case. Many similar organizations
in other provinces and even in li.
C. have tp.ne the =ame way bul
that fact has not disheartened the
men who see that co-operation in
shipment is in the best interests of
shippers and, learning by their
past mistakes mu-t of the eastern
provinces now have their exchanges
where tin- whole output frnm certain sections is controlled. Independent shipping has become a
rare experiment where foreign
markets are involved.
We believe lhat with a calm anil
unbiassed consideration of the subject lhe shippers of B, C. will arrive
men of the city realise the vain-
;ii. ■• asset which would accrue to
Kevelstoke as an advertisement in

would not be slow tu rally liberally

demonstration {wbii b would follow
would -pee.lily ensure tbe o-oper-

pr iv iiic.
A public meeting to wbii b i
rally call could he i.-sueil would at
once determine the amount of local
interest that exists in the re-estab-
lisbment of an exchange here and
would, in the interchange of views
have an educative value far beyond
immediate power tu estimate.

Action Against Ah Sing for Sup
plying Liquor Dismissed
In the Police Court on Saturday a
somewhat lengthy hearing was given
the charge against Ah Sing, keeper of
the Palace restaurant on the complaint that he had illegally served
patrons of tbe bouse with beer, not
being licensed to do so. Ah Sing
immediately pleaded not guilty. Tbe
principal witnesses for tbe prosecution were two Italian women, they
being the same persons as had given
evidence in tbe case against tbe Jap,
lined for a similar offence last week.
Tbe first of theBe, Mrs, Magray, swore
tbat she bad gone to the Palace on
March 29tb in company with Mary
Veltori. The latter had ordered two
buttles of beer and tlici.c hsd been
brought hy Ah Sing. Ah Sing had
drawn the cork, brought gimmes and
poured the liquid. One bottle was
carried away by the spies and was
produced aod identified in court. It
was witb tbe supper that the liquor
had been served. Both the Bupper
and the beer were paid fur at the same
time. A $2 bill was given in payment
for supper and the beer and $1.00 returned.
In tbe cross-examination by Mr.
McCarter, Mrs. Magray wae submitted
to an uncomfortable grilling as to her
occupation and means of support, she
stating tbat she was being practically
supported by tbe city. She bad not
received any of the money paid for the
information laid in the case iigiiutsl
tbe Japanese excepting her wituess
fee of $1 50. Phedid not know bow
much Mary Veltori got. She bad no
promise of anything for information
in the present case.
Mary Veltori, being sworn, corroborated, without apparent hesitation, tbe
evidence of the previous witness, while
under direct examination by Mr. Gillsn. She bad frequently bad drinks
of beer at Ah Sing's. Under cross-
examination she swore that she had
not been promised anything for informing in esse tbe charge against
Ah Sing was made to stick. On being
asked if sbe bad received auytbing for
informing in the case of tbe Jap lined
lust week, she at lirst '. nied, but on
being beld to tbe question admitted
receiving $50. No one bad sent ber
to spy on Ah Sing. She bad told the
chief of police after she bad got $50
for informing in the Jap case.
Chief of Police Bain testified that
be had heard no complaints as to the
general sale of liquor at Ah Sing's
place. Had heard that Sam Suey was
sold about New Year's time. He knew
nothing about tbe character or occupation of the witnesses.
For his defence Ah Sing told his
story without hesitation. He had
taken an order for two suppers from
the witnesses. They hsd gone into a
box and immediately alterward Mary
Velori had come into tbe kitcheu, laid
two quarters on lhe order table and
asked him to get her two bottles of
beer. He had donned hie coat, gone
out and got it. He did not open the
bottles or pour the bier. He denied

Remarkable Growth of L.O.T.M.
Since Inception in 1892
The corner stone of the fraternal
organization known as the Ladies of
the Maccabees of the world, was laid
in October, IMI2, and the event was
hailed with delight since the plans of
the Order gave women extended opportunities lo care lor and protect
their homes and those dear to them.
The building of the Order has gone on
apace and every structure reared has
had careful planning and management. From a membership at nil it
has grown by leaps and bounds, the
year 1U0U leading in gains, the increase heing 24 719.
Its growth is thought by some to
be more remarkable in that the association has been from its inception
the work ol women alone. Founded
and built up hy iv.mien, of women mid
for women, its ollicers and managers,
ite field workers, its deputies, aud its
members are antl have always been
only women.
Its solid foundation, upward growth,
its splendid achievements are tbe
renult ol woman's brain, woman's
effort, energy and forethought,
Pu Mrs. l.illi.n M. Hollister, supreme commander, a woman In nud „*
a fraternalist throughout the United
States is due in great incisure to tie
marvellous growth ol the institution,
In her charge for many years has
been the field work, with its many
responsibilities. Sbe has contrellt'd
and directed the competent force of
women deputies and leaders, wlm
under the training and with the example of their chief, have each contributed largely to make the order
known throughout the land.
For the personal achievements nu
less than in connection with the great
order of which she is the heud, is Mrs.
Hollister known.
All of the charters issued by the
order to subordinate hives from organization to the present time, Lear the
signature of one woman, Mise Bins
M. West, supreme record keeper of lhe
order. She it was in 1892 who shouldered the undertaking of founding the
order, with only faith and a boundless
enthusiasm and belief in its future to
back her.
The funds of this great institution,
amounting to over three millions of
dollars in the emergency fund alone,
are and have always been in the
hands of women financiers.
The Ladies of the Maccabees ol the
World is established in 54 states and
territories of the union and provinces
of Canada.
The latest manifestation ol the
fraternal spirit in this order is the
National L, O. T. M. home, which it is
proposed to establish. A considerable
sum fur this purpose has already been
contributed and on Oct. 1 ol this year
the sixteenth anniversary will le celebrated by the hives wiih an entertainment to raise money for the loud.
The home, when completed, will give
shelter and hospital service to destitute, sick and nged members nf the

Moth  is  Fatal  to Fruit and
Provincial Fruit Inspeotor Cunningham received a batch of exceedingly unwelcome visitors last week.
They came from France, and the
Istuily name is euproctischrysorrboea.
These are nothing more or less than
the caterpillars ol the dreaded brown
tail moth that is at present causing
consternation among fruit growers
and nurserymen in Ontario. At present British Columbia is free from the
pest, and fortunately tbere i but
small danger of ils getting in, ss every
imported tree gets individual examination. The batch found came in a
packet of nursery stock Irum France.
These pests uot only ruiu the Iruit
aud direst trees, but the hairs bum tbe
caterpillar, if they get on a human
being, cause seriuus illness, aud il the
tbo person affected happens to be in
poor health at the time, most likely
death will ensue. The eggs are laid
200 and 30<l at a time, ou the uuder
side uf leaves early in July, and in a
short time thereafter tbe tree affected
will bave its leaves skeletonized. The
caterpillars also are great travelers
and have a bad habit ol dropping from
tbe trees to buggies or autos, and
thereby getting a free ride tu now
scenes of operations. Mr. Cunningham says that no worse curse oould
get iuto British Columbia orchirds.

An Australian writer in tbe National Review makes a strong plea lor a
better Imperial news service. In the
course ol bis article he says:
"The Empire, in fact, is getting
along mediocrely on a basis of mutual
ignorance. Nuw ignorance did comparatively little harm twenty years
ago It is not necessary (or one's
contort or saletv to know anything
about one's nexidoor neighbor. But
it 's wise, often essential, lo know ■
g md deal about one's partner or one's
b such managers; and the development!.f the Empire to-day leads inevitably either tn partnership or to
disintegration. -The only rosd lo nn
Imperial council,' ssid the Federal
Attiirnty ilenersl, the other day, 'lies
through cheaper cablegrams; infinite
mischiol will ensue otherwise' Mischief enough hss already been done by
tbe continual misinterpretation, at
both ends of the world, of sets and
opinions which were made to seem
unjustifiable solely by tho mesgreness
of the knowledge at the disposal of the
judges. 'Milk lur babes,' perhaps, but
the thinnest ol adulterated skim-milk
(or the nourishment of a grownup
Empire—what sort of criminal starvation is that ?"
It is pn dm ble thst a six penny cable
rate would do more tn solidify the
Empire than any other sioglf agency,
