CROP PROSPECT
IS RRIGHT
Okanagan Ranchers Pay Attention to Stock, Cattle and
Poultry—Season Early
"Prospects In tlie Okanagan an'
exceedingly bright" says J. M. McKay, superintendent ol the Kevelstoke
district uf the Canadian Pacific .'ail-
way, who returned on Frldaj morn
ins trom a tour ol Inspection in the
Okanagan. During part ol In* trip he
wus accompanied b,\ L'.S. Acheson,
general agricultural agent uf Caua-
tiiaii i a i.i ra Iv.'.. western lines.
Mr, \cli'i'ii was dtl.ighted with whai
be saw during his first plait to lhe
district and intends to return m the
near future to .oo.> more c.us.iy into conditions.
Agriculture in the Okanagan is this
year three weeis aheadof lasl year,
and the ranchers are optimistic and
delighted with the prospects said Mr.
McKay with new orchards there
will be an Increase e.f 2-'i pe." cent in
crop ovei last year and there is
every indication of a heavy crop of
all varieties of unit. The ranchers
arc this year giving much attention
to vegetables and Mr. McKay estimates that there will he an Increase
over lust year iu tbe acreage devoted
to vegetables e,f [rom ZO to 36 per
ccnt. Fodder crops are in excellent
condition and the firsl cutting of
alfalfa in th • Vernon   district    will
take place about the last week ill
May. Last years hay crop has been
marketed satisfactorily bringing excellent prices and the vegetable and
fruit crop ol last year has been prac
tic.illy all disposed of, 'lhe ranchers
arc going in extensively (or live
stock and large herds of cattle,
Hocks of sheen and droves of pigs
are to he s>en throughout the Okanagan. Another Industry to which much
attention ia being paid is the raising
ol poultry Which Mr. McKay be-
lieves will eventually do much to
salve the problem of the cost ol living in British Columbia.
Tli.' lumber Industry is Bbowing
siuns of greater activity. The Enderby mill is in full operation anil at
(has" one- oi the saw mills is operating in addition tu the planing mill.
If the crops on the prairies fulfil ex-
pectat'ons, Mr. McKay expects to
see a distinct  revival in  ltimb<erlng  in
British Columbia.

The passengers were at luncheon
when the attack was made, Tbe
boats were at once lowered, but it is
believed that only part of tie

minutes. A statement Issued by the
Uritish admiralty today says that

is GaO tho.ith this number will likely
be Increased when reports are recorded from the numerous boats

would become taxable two or three
years after the sale to the Canadian
Pacitic railway.
C.P.R. Brought Action.
The Canadian Pacitic railway repeatedly urged upon Heinze that he
should make choice of bis share, aB
they wished to administer the lands.
Heinze declined this invitation and
the Canadian Pucitic railway brought
action to force him to take his
'lands. At this period, wliicb was
prior to I'M", when he joined the
government, Mr. Bowser was practicing as a lawyer in Vancouver and
acted for Heinze in defending his
suit against the Canadian I'acitic railway, which was carried to the sup-
leme court at Ottawa, where Mr.
; Bowser was successful.
Then, by the effluxion of time, under the terms of the Railway Aid
i act of 1896, the lands became taxable;
but prior to this period the Cana
dian Pacific railway bud
holdings to the government. Mr.
Bowser had ceased to be Heinz 's
solicitor, which position was assumed by Mr. CH. Hamilton, of Nelson.
After the purchase by the government from the Canadian Pacific railway in 1912, tbe Columbia & WeBtern
lands became liable to taxation,   hut

WAR IMPROVES
BRITISH MANNERS
It has heen decided that nurses who
arc going to the front and who have
leen givsn honorary rank as lieutenants, and as such entitled to the
salute ot soldiers, shall acknowledge
it by a nod. Whether they should bow
or salute in return, or merely smile,
Was debated for some time, and now
it has heen concluded that a nod, to
which may be added, perhaps, a
smi'ie, if desirable, will serve all pur
poses. This detail recalls the prediction made by "Ex-Attache" in the
Pittsburg Disputch, who says that
the war is vastly improving the manners ot Englishmen, because it is ac-
customing them to military forms '
of salution, which are likely to sur- j
vive alter the war is over, and in the
British Isles be established in lieu of ,
the American handshake, the Latin
bow, and the Oriental salaam. The
Englishman is chary about handshaking, whereas in the United States
und in the Canadian citieB the hand- i
shako is considered as necessary, al- |
-nost, as the raising of a hat to , a
lady. In fact, a very common—and
odious—form of introduction is "Mr.
Smith, shake hands with Mr. Jones."
British Nods and Grins.
Among the Latin peoples, when
male acquaintances meet, it is customary for them to raise their hats
und bow as profoundly as though
they were greeting ladies. Englishman
scorn tbis salutation as being too
obsequious, and greet each other with
a smile or a nod. Even if the smile
is too bright it is frowned upon by
tbe conventions, which consider it
rather had form that two men Bhould
iiiunilest pleasure at the sight of
each other. The nod is objected to on
the ground thut it is rather curt, and
indeed it is possible to convey by a
ii'"1 in inBUlt, so thut some people ,
would ruther pass unnoticed by their
acquaintances than bc made tbe victims of an acknowledgment tbat suggests their unimportance, it net indeed their disrepute. Concerning the
British bow patriotism bids us be
silent. It is often almost a hostile
gesture.
The City Hand-shake.
In considering the general British
distaste for the hand-shake an exception must be made in favor ot tbe
city of London itself. There the business men huve a custom ol shaking
hands with acquaintances every morning, but in view of the operations in
which they then engage it might he
thought tbat the hand-shake was to
be compared to the band shake ot
two pugilists, who touch each other's
mitts for a second and than exert
themselves to render each other unconscious. "Ex-Attache" says that
the city band shake Qnds its counterpart in the great marts of Central
Asia, where traders from all pans ol
tho continent meet to deal with each
other, and where the tongues nre almost as various as in the Tower of
Ratal, Ft.e:n this COnfUSlon there has
been evolved g snit of sign language
whirl) is conducted by ibe traders
rrnsping each other's arms at various
poln<tl trow the wrist to the should
tr, and bv means of varying pres-
siiiH conveying subtle    shinies    of
meaning. The fact that the conversationists wear long loose BleeveB in
which the hands are concealed makes
it Impossible for otberB to understand
what iB being communicated.
England in Khaki.
'    The war has given    evory     second
Englishman  a  uniform.  Indeed,  if we
take account of   tbe     vurioim home
' guards,  special  constables,  and      the.
workmen who are olad in khaki, it Is
plain tbat the Englishman who does
not wear some badge of military activity is far in the minority. The exceptions to the general    rule, we are
told, are rather frowned upon   In the
clubs and    elsewhere,  and if a     man
has not a uniform he is expected   to
have an apology. This idea was   conveyed to i.ocal    theatre-goers   a   few
weeks ago whem "The White Feather"
played in Toronto. With the uniform
goes part of the    military  discipline,
if not all of  the     military  hardship,
and the salute is one of the flrst lessons taught the recruit.  Soldiers are
expected  to  salute    officers    wherever
they     see     them,    for reasons which
were explained  in  a  previous article,
'lhe result  is thnt Englishmen  nowadays  salute  each  other    instead      of
nodding or bowing or shaking   hands
or manifesting other signs of     being
aware of each other's existence.
Redeeming the Uniform.
If the  salute  should      permanently
displace thc  other    forms of greeting
it would give to English  manners    a
uniformity which they sadly lack.   It
would do  much to redeem the profession of arms and tbe odium which  it
has endured for   nearly     a    hundred ;
years. After the Napoleonic wars   it
is said thut the British peoplo    were I
so sick of anything     that    reminded
them of the struggle that the     Duke j
of Wellington suggested    that officers
should appear in    uniform as seldom |
as possible. Wc are reminded   in   one
of  Kipling's  poems that    the soldier
in uniform was frequently refused accommodation  in  English  public houses,  often barred from  theatres     and
made to feel that it was rather     disgraceful to wear the badge of his call- |
ing among civilized people. This prejudice,  we are sure,  will  disappear as
n result of the war.    Hereafter     the
wearer will have as good a right    to
be proud of his puttees as if he wore I
a bishop's gaiters.—Mail and Empire. |

Two war budgets, pfbviding tor    tho
raising of enor is sums, have   beon
introduced by the ch inci lb r o! the
exchequer, but although there is keen
difference of opinion as to the best
methods tor levying additional taxation, the Conservatives accepted tho
policy of the government without a
dissentient  vote,
i ontrast  tho attitude ol  the     op
position in Kngland with that ofthe
opposition to the Borden government
in Canada. Previous to the outbreak
of war thc opposition, by  means     of
the senate, hal already contrived   to
nullify the naval  policy of the    gov
ernment, which had been promised to
Hi" people, and by  which the government  proposed    to     materially     in
crease the naval strength of the empire;   and  by  sim.lar  me ms     it.   had
succeeded in    frustrating     important
measures of domestic legislation. The
outbreak ol war did little or nothing
to curb the partisan spirit with which
the   opposition  regarded  every      measure proposed by the government, Nm
even  the  war  budget     was  permitted
to pass without an endeavor on the
I art of the opposition tu use   it     as
a means to eject the government. The
Liberals divide,1  the house  and  voted
solidly against the government's plan

necessitated    by    the   war.    On    other

WHY ELECTION
NOT IMPROBABLE
R. F. Green, M.P., Says Aggressive Tactics of Liberals Render Position Intolerable
H. F. Green, M.P., yesterday corroborated press reports from Ottawa
denying th' statement given wide circulation that the Hon. C.J, Doh.rl.y,
minister of justice, had stated in a
speech at Sherhrooke, Quebec, that
the governor gen, nil had refused to
dissolve parliament, says the Victoria Colonist.
Mr. Doherty haw issued a statement
iu which he says that he did not nd
Iress any  public me'ting      at      Slier-
1 rooi.e, as alleged, He had spoiien to
friends, hoth in French and Vlngtisb,
'.ut he did not make any such state
Hint   as is attributed  to  him.
Mr. lireeu, while having no Information as lo whither the govcrnineni
has decided mi an early   appeal     to
the  electorate,   is ol  the   opinion   that
the situation at Ottawa and throughout tiic country in respect to organized partlzan attac s upon the government I.y the Liberals has assume.I
such aggravated form as to render al-
inosi intolerable the position of the
ministry which finds   itself hampered
wherever it turns, at a t.me when it
should lee dc.oti ig its whole Btrength
to the tremendous tasks which arise
.'rom Call..da being in a state of war.
Liberals Broke the Truce.
It is .,ii opon socret that before the
outbreak  of  war the      prime  ininiste.-
had determined to submit his record
to the judgment of th" electorate (last
autumn, With this in view, he had
arrangefd an early  tour uf the western
provinces, as .luring tin* campaign
his presence would be required in
eastern '.'aiuida. In view ot thc attitude of the Liberal leaders at tho
war session In August, and having re
gard to great pressure of public duties in connection with the war which
'inn demanded the undivided attention of the ministers, this intention
.wis uot carrie 1 into effect, and the
government det irmined to take no
such action until further develop
ments should occur.
During the latter part ote Octobel
the Liberals, as is w dl known,, began a syst'inaiic exploitation e.f the
difficulties winch ti..' government was
ncounterlng in mobilising, organising and equipping the   lirst overseas
ii nt.iiL-ent. Early in November documents came into th.' possession ofthe
government which Indicated that Lib-
"«ra'. organizers hid beon Instructjd
to assist in this exploltatli n.
Notwithstanding these     things, the
! rime  minister  a lh( red   to  bis d te:
Donation   t.    avoid ! arty   conflict   and
irranged that seats then vacant
BhOUld  bc Oiled   without   contest.  Then
'ame  the  s'ssion.   with  its  recora   of
Liberal  partisan tae'tics. culminating
in tl'     I.auu. i   •   ,,: a,a  ,,f want  of con-
idenco.
Sent i mt Party Literature.
In the meantime, a large amount •■:
party literature was pr. pared, with
•he ,p| loval ol Sir Wilfrid Lauriei .
and distributed in enormous quantities. Nine-ten lis of the l.t i tui
•■.Inch has passed through the Ottawa
POSI office has e a •!! it d fro n tlie
liberal head j u.iiti'i s, win! • vii.
tie Conservative literature has been
■'-'nt out, and that only in answer to
Liberal att r -
The situation has I,ecu aggravated
by th" refusal of the Liberal major-
iti i'i the senate to agree to the ap
I ointment of the nine new western
Bonators until the close of the pre
tent parliament, although the west is
' ti.1.'d   to   the   increase.       Mor over.
there are a western constituency
waiting the representation in the
commons to winch the redistribution
at it les  'hem.
To summon a new parliament ilur
lng a war is jn.t hy any means an unusual proceeding. In (treat Britain an
election was held on September 25,
1900, during the progress of the Boer
war. which did not tcrminute until
the 21st of the following May. Pur
nig the same year an election WSJ
held in Canada, on October '.). During
the present year an election has been
lield in Australia nnd nlBO in New
Zealand without any disastrous consequences.
Pressing Problems Ahead.
It is understood   thai  the govern
ment ims sought the best Information
as to the duration of tbe present war
and there is little hope in the high-
est quarters that It. will be concluded
liming the lifetime of the present
Canadian parliament, Bven if concluded within the next twelve months
lhe attention „nd energies of tbe
government would necessarily be .1,.

Skilful, hold, and decisive a character
that  he  gained  positions  which  M	
have enabled me to maintain my
position for more than three weeks

Later, in the same dispatch, Jjfter
he had described how an advanced
iind commanding position hud beec
teized and held, General French wrote:
'I cannot speuk too highly ot th-i
valuable services rendered by Sir
Douglas Haig and the army corps

A Leader of Great Ability.

A CERTAIN farmer in Iowa has
discovered that the benefits
which appear on the surface as
attaching to the mail order plan
sometimes spell disaster and has
written a very interesting story of
ews in a certain farm paper.
Here is a part of his story:
"We farmers need awakening to thc
fact that we hnve unmistakably reach
r.tl the period .vhere wn must think
and plan. I an .no of tbe slow farmers that had to be shown, and I
am now giving my experience that
others may profit, for knowledge Is
more  expensive  now  than ten    yeara
ago.
"Twrat.y nine years ago I began
my farm career f bad an old team
and lr.O. Out fi.rnlt.ure was mostly
home-made—chairs, cupboard and
lounce made (rotp dry i-oods boxes,
neat!? eover»d with ten cent cretonne
by my girl wife We rented eighty
acre*. Being n boy of good habits I
rut ill nen'ed machinery and groceries of our home merchnnts on
credit., until fall crops w«e e»old. Tbe
Brrt year wns n rtet. season and I did
not mnke (noilgh to pny ecredltors. I
went to eneh on date nf promise and
explained  conditions,  paying  ns mnch
as possible, and they all carried the
balance over another year. They continued to accommodate me until I
was able to buy a forty-acre piece of
my own.
"As soon ns I owned these few
acres the mail order houses began
sending me catalogues, and gradually I began sending my loose change
to them, letting my accounts stand
in my home town where I had gotton
my accommodation when I needed lt.
"We then had one of thc thriftiest
llttlo villages ln the state—good line
of business ln all the branches, merchants who were willing to help an
honest fellow over a bad year, and a
town full of people who came twice
a week to trade nnd visit. Our little
country town supported a library,
high school, hand, ball team, and we
had big celebrations every year.
"A farm near a live town soon
doubles ln value. I sold my
forty acres at a big advance and
bought an eighty, egradunlly adding
to it until T had 200 ncres of the bwt
land In Town. T then felt no need of
asking fnvors, nnd found It eMy to
patrlonbe the mall order agents tbat
came almost wwkly to our door. I
r"i-ret to pny th^t I was the flrrt ln
the country to make up a neighborhood bill nnd send lt to a mall order
bwise. Though  we got     bitten ev.ery
once in a while, we got in the habit
of sending away for stufl.
"Gradually our merchants lessened
their stock of goods—for lack of patronage. Finally we began to realize
that when we needed a bolt quickly
for machinery, or clothing for slck-
iii h:' or death, we had to wait and
send away fer it, which wasn't ao
pleasant. One by one our merchants
moved to places where tbey were appreciated, and men of less energy
moved in. Gradually our town has
gone down; our business houses are
"tacky" In appearance, a number are
empty; our schools, churches and
walks are going down; we have no
band, no library, no ball team. There
Ib no business done ln the town, and
therefore no taxes to keep things up.
Hotel is closed for lack ol travel. Go
down to the depot when the freight
pulls in and you will see the so niril
'in mall order packaegw.
"Nine years ago my farm was
worth $195 an acre; to-day I'd hare
n hard matter to sell lt at $167 an
ncre. It is 'too far from a live town'
—so every farmer has said that want*
to buy. He wants a place near schools
and churches, where bis chlldrm can
hnve advantages, I have awakened to
the fact that in helping to pnll the
town down, lt haa coat me $5,600 la
nine years." SATURDAY,  MAY S,   1915

Notes from the cTWines
The test smelter being built at tbe
Standard mill to try the French zinc
separation proceBs, will likely bc
given a trial run before the end of
this month.—Slocan Record.
Two shifts have been working for
the past two months in the tunnel on
thc Penticton Chilliwack Coal company's property noar town. The tunnel la now in 225 feet, and is being
driven towards the shait.—Penticton
Herald.
Capt. Rogers, the eminent mining
man, who is heavily Interested in the
Homestnke Gold Mining company, is
■expected in cranbrook this week. Immediately upon bis arrival development work is expected to" start, when
s. force of men will he put to work.—
Herald.
The Continental Development company, has resumed operations at the
Rocher DebOUle mine at New Hazelton, employing from 60 to 76 men at
the property. This mny be increased
«is the work progresses. The ore bunkers at the mine are ail tilled, and
the bunkers at Prince Rupert are
ready now to receive ore. Sat&ac
tory arrangements are made for
transportation, and the ore will all
be sent to Granby.
W. E. Cameron, who until the suspension of operations after the outbreak of war in Europe last summer
bad charge of the Bevcrul Slocan properties in S'iocan district for the Consolidated Mining and Smelting company, ia now superintendent at the
Rambler-Cariboo silver-lead mine in
the McGuigan basin, which mine was
the tirat in the Slocan district at
which important deep-level development work was done.
t.iroly upon how rapidly its consumption in ammunition making increases.
The most reliable adviceB state that
the allied armies of Europe are in
very great need of enormously increased ammunition supplies, nnd an
advance'of IO or 20 cents per pound
in the price of copper would not
cause any curtailment of consumption for such purposes.—Roston Commercial./
UNLUCKY JIM
Thc Lucky Jim does not appear to
be able to get clear of one difficulty
before another overlaps with a new
location. In fact, the Lucky Jim is
the most successful trouble gatherer
in thc province. It should be called
the   Hill   Hohenzollern.   It has   bad  all
sortR   of     misfortunes—overstocking,
wine, Manitoba politicians, Loperism,
private cars, mortgages, bonded l'i-
I'cbtedness, Incompetence, extravagance, and d—d little intelligent development, Even in its most prosper
ous period it was decided to run a
deep-level tunnel. With ordinary luck
end ,i little horse sense the tunnel
WOll'id havi' followed the ledge and,
possibly, paid for itself with the ore
taken out, but the fates decided upon a crosscut tunnel and poor old
Lucky Jim got another jam. Now it
if in the hands of the court and the
lawyers.—Slocan  Record.
NAKUSI'
DISTRICT PLEASES
INSPECTOR OF DANK
Copper is remarkably strong and
such large premiums are being paid
for immediate delivery thut it is Impossible to give anything better than
approximate quotations. Lake is 19
to 21 cents, one sale at the latter
price having been reported, and electrolytic is IS to ISJ cents n . pound.
It is now clearly apparent that thc
world's available supplies of refined
copper hus been exhausted, and this
means that the world's consumption
during the eight months since tbc
wnr begun has been in the mggregate
equivalent to full volume, while curtailment of production in the same
period has left about 4<K),lK>0,OSfl
pounds unmined in the ground which
otherwise would have come into the
market. The trade is now feeling the
tliect of this, and it is reflected in
the high prices being paid. The situation at present is such that copper
prices may possibly advance to 25
cents or higher,  this depending     en-
Nakusp, B. C, May 7.—W. Hogg,
chief inspector of Pacific coast branches of the Canudian Bank of Commerce on Sunday morning was driven
around the district, accompanied by
F.W. Heathcote, looal manager of
the bank. Mr. Hogg expressed himself us much pleased with the development in evidence among the fruit
ranches and from a financial standpoint was optimistic as to the future, not only of the immediate district but of the country at large.
A number of prospective recruits for
the Kootenay-Boundary regiment are
disappointed that it is expected of
them to go to Nelson to be accepted
and for examination purposes. Several feel that they cannot afford the
expense ut the risk if possibly being
refused and the hoard of trade is taking the matter up with a view of seeing whether a recruiting officer cannot come to Nakusp to look over the
men from the Arrow Lakes district.
The lake is now over 10 feet above
low  water mark.
Building contractors at Trail are
complaining thnt the Doukhobors are
accepting contracta for labor and
mnterinl at. figures lower than the
whites can supply the  material.

Sat in day evening at Weston opera
bouse, Portland, Hobby Evans put
out Larry .Mitchell, Portland welter
weight, in the third round of a boxing bout  scheduled to go ten rounds.
Mitchell was outclassed in everything but weight, and was plainly in
distress almost from the beginning of
hostilities. He jolted Bobby a time or
two at long range, but in fast
infighting Evans was so evidently his
m ister that the result was never in
doubt, The bell save. 1 him in the
n' ond round. In, the third Evans
thrice put him to the floor, and the
third time he stayed for the count.
He was dazed when lifted to his feet
and wanted to know what happened,
not as yet realizing that he had rc
ceived a powerful left hook In the pit
of the stomach.. At that, however,
Mitchell shows promise, having the
advantage of youth and strength and
some degree of skill. He was up
against a finished ring craftsman,
who can deliver a punch with the
best of the lightweights.
Hnd \i: lerson of Portlan 1 and Van-
, who was regarded as a comer
until he encountered both Leach Cross
and the appendicitis, was pr, sent at
thc ringside, and announced through
Refree Carpenter that he would chal
lenee tho winner.
Earl Coutts has ahout completed
arrangements for another meeting between Bobby Evans and Billy Farrell,
a fast lightweight with whom Evans
in very anxious to again try conclusion's. This engagement will very
likely to be staged nt Athena, where
a substantial guarantee is said to
have beer oflered. and is sure to attract a large attendance from Pendleton. Walla Walla and intermediate
points.
Mitchell remains at Weston,  and   is
working   with   Eve.ns   at his training
.n the local gymnasium.
