BRONCHO BUSTERS
HAVB OHANOB OP PICK OF BRONCHOS AT VICTORIA.
R M. Palmer Bnthuilastlc About Crop*
In Nicola Valley Pleased witb
The Fruit Growing Possibilities    Of   Thii
Section.
To anyone who fancies that riding a
bucking broncho is one of the easiest
things in the world, the British Columbia Agricultural association holds out
the tempting offer of the ownership of
any of the bronchos which will be used
in the cowboy roughriding contest at
the coming exhibition on from September 24 to 28 says the Victoria Colonist,
for simply remaining on the horse's
back for a period of ten minutes any
j unusual amount of rain. The rainfall
in the interior has been unusually heavy
| this summer and consequently the
ranges are green and the stock generally is in good condition. At Vernon
three and a half inches of rain has
fallen during August.
Mr. Palmer states that it is probable
that a number of the large holdings
throughout these districts will be subdivided into smaller sections and devoted to mixed farming. This has been
made possible by the C. P. R. branch
line through the Nicola valley.
While in the Nicola Valley Mr. Palmer visited the coal mines operated by
the Nicola Coal and and Coke company
and the Diamond Vale Coal and Coke
company. People of the district are
very enthusiastic regarding the development of these. The work so far
done on them has produced splendid
results. In the tunnel of the Nicola
Coal and Coke company Mr. Palmer
saw a seam of coal eighteen and a half
feet wide, in addition to smaller seams.
In the Nicola valey more attention is
being paid to fruit growing and it has

afternoon   during   the fair.    J.   E.
Smart, Secretary of the fair associa- jbeen demonstrated that the district is
tion on this week announced that the
directors hau dteMM to make a present
of a broncho to any person who succed-
ed in riding one. Ten minutes is a
short time and the offer seems tempting enough to bring out a host of candidates.
Judging from the remarks of a great
many of the spectators at last year's
fair the cowboys engaged in the rough-
riding contest were not the only ones
willing to take part in the competition,
and this year the association has decided to permit any person so incline-
to take a whirl at the gentle art of
breaking cow ponies not an easy case.
It is open to all and the additional inducement of ownership of a broncho
is offered along with the cash prizes.
Here is a chance for any young man
who thinks he can ride a horse.
After this week there will be plenty
of bronchos at the track in a corrall
there and anyone who has an ambition
to enter the roughriding contest can
have the use of the horses for practice
on applying to the secretary. A carload of bronchos will be shipped this
week from Douglas Lake ranch in
charge of Oliver Walker. The bronchos
have all been running wild on the ranges
and after a short rest here will be in
great trim for the roughriding test.
Among the bronchos which will come
here will be  Clilliwack  Cherub, the
prize broncho of last year.   Chilliwack
Cherub, is in splendid trim according
to reports from the ranch and is more
fiery than ever.   He has been running
loose on the range ever since last year
and the man who rides him this year
will have to be a past master in the
art.   Writing from the ranch Oliver
Walker tells a story of a young Scotchman who was employed there and who
essayed to subdue any horse in the Old
Country, and in fact, was a pretty fair
sort of a rider.   He was given a mount
on the horse but his tenure of office in
the saddle was very brief.   Chilliwack
Cherub snorted when he felt the rider
and as sooi as  turned  loose reared
straight up 11 the air and then like a
flash buried his nose in the gravel. The
Scotchman executed a graceful parabola through the atmosphere and hit
the turf with a thud. He came to three
days later and may get over it some
day, but he admits himself that he will
never forget it.
well suited to the growing of the hard
er varieties of apples and pears.
The bog lands along the river are
particularly suited to the growing of
small fruits which ripen two weeks
later than in other sections which is an
additional advantage in marketing upon
the prairies. This is due to the high
elevation of the district.

Lauder-Warden.
The marriage took place at Trinity
Parish Church, Seattle, Wash., on
Thursday afternoon, August 29th.
Frederick Dixon Lauder, son of J. D.
Lauder of Kamloops and Miss Alice
Wardell, sister of Mrs. Ric. A. Fraser
of Nicola.
The ceremony was performed by Rev.
H. H. Gowen and Miss Bessie Douglas
was bridesmaid, G. B. Montanye assisting as best man.
The newly married couple arrived in
Nicola last Friday evening and are receiving the congratulations of their
many friends throughout the valley.
Mrs. Lauder will be "at home" after
October 1st.
Eighty-Four Victims.
The anchor pier on the Levis side of
the Quebec bridge gave way last Thursday and went down into the river at
5.30 p.m., carrying with it over 800
feet of structure. At the time the
bridge was covered with workmen, and
84 of these are believed to have perished. So far 16 bodies have been recovered.
At the moment of callapse a locomotive and nine loads of iron had gone on
the bridge. They went down with the
wreck. It is suspected that some hidden defect had developed. The men
killed were mostly Americans in the
employ of the Phcenix Bridge Co., of
Phoenixville, Pa.
The season of the annual fall fairs is
now very close at hand, and it is surely
possible for the Nicola Valley to be
represented in some way  at one or
more of the important of these.  At
one time the district  supported an
annual fair which was well supported
and produce from all parts of the district was on exhibition, and it is surely
not too much to expect that now when
very nearly every farmer in the district
grows produce either for sale or for his
own use, that a representative exhibit
can be brought together and show to
the many attending these fairs what
can be done in the way of growing produce in this district.     Of the many
places that are holding annual exhibitions, perhaps the two most suitable
would be Victoria and New Westminster,
as these places are visited by the class
of people who would be most likely to
follow up their enquiries regarding an
exhibit, by a visit to the district in
which the produce was grown.   In the
matter of farm and vegetable products
the Nicola Valley needs not to yield the
palm to any other district in the province, and an exhibit of fruit representative of what is  being successfully
grown in many of the local orchards
would go far to awaken and stimulate
interest on behalf of our own district
and help to prove that in their claims
the residents of this section are not a
bit too enthusiastic as regards its fruit
growing  possibilities.     This   matter
ought to be taken up at once, and a
rej 'esentative committee   formed to
carry the matter through to a final
issue.  There is not too much time, still
there is time to make all necessary
arrangements, and it is to be hoped
that those interested will at once take
the matter up, and that when the fairs
are open not the least interesting of the
many exhibits will be that of the Nic
ola Valley.
will mean one of the greatest undertakings in the history of the Canadian
[ road. It involves eight miles of track
over the same distance now covered by
��� four miles of track which is now accom-
j plished by a series of loops and rock
j tunnels. At least a mile and a half of
I tunnels will be needed-about three
| quarters of a mile on either side of the
Kicking Horse River. Two immense
bridges will also be erected in the con-
I struction.
Itis the intention of the company
to go ahead with the new work as soon
as they can get men on the spot. The
lowest estimate fixes the time which
will be required before the work is completed at eighteen months and then
with continuous work.
The work is the most ambituous ever
attempted bv the C. P. R. and to overcome the present heavy grade a cool
million dollars will be the outlay. The
fact, too, that the contract has been
let to the Maedonell, Gzowski Company
is a feather in the cap of the well
known firm of contractors showing the
utmost confidence reposed in them by
the transcontinental road.
Dr. Kerr, who had charge of the
medical work with the Maedonell, Gzowski Company during the construction
of the Nicola branch, will also have
charge of this department in the work
at Field.

Rare Mineral Found.
A new and rare mineral has been
found at several mines in the Cobalt
belt, known as stromeyerite, an amalgam of the sulphides of silver and
copper. One mine where it has been
found is the Cochrane, adjoining the
Temiskaming. The vein is said to be
fourteen inches wide. The pure metal
has previously been found in South
America, Siberia and Bohemia. Cobalt's
find is the first in North America. The
pure meneral contains 53 per cent, of
silver and will run over 15,000 ounces
to the ton.   It is a black heavy metal.
Biological Station.
It is understood that in addition to
the land already purchased at Departure Bay for the Biological station
Lieutenant-Governor Dunsmuir has
granted a further tract of land to facilitate the work of the station. The new
station will become a great scientific
centre, not only for Canada, but for
the whole scientific world.

Local Train During Winter.
A local train from Vanvouver to

by the C. P. R. during the coming
winter when the double transcontinental express se-vice is discontinued. The
service would be daily each way.
Mr. Robert Kerr, passenger traffic
manager of the C. P. R., stated that
while no decision had been reached in
respect to discontinuing the double daily
express service between Vancouver and
Montreal he rather thought that when
business fell off in the fall one train
might be taken off. As was the case
last winter the double service would

Quilchena Put Up Strong Fight But
Visiting Team Too Strong  Kam
loops Win   Thorpe Oup-
Horse Races Will Be
Held Tomorrom.
The unsettled weather  on Monday
was responsible for the rather poor
attendance at the sports at Qnilchena.
The rain of the previous night had rendered the polo ground very wet and
slippery but it was decided to proceed
with the game as arranged. The Grand
Prairie team were unable to be present
and the match was therefore between
Kamloops and Quilchena.   The following were the respective teams:-Kamloops, W. L. Fernie (capt.), J. Hamilton, F. E. Young and S. W. Batten.
Quilchena, G. A.  Lafferty (capt.), J.
Guichon Jr., W. Hawkins and J. F. P.
Nash.   G. Lodwick   acted as referee
and Bradshaw Brown as timekeeper.
For the first two quarters of the game
the home team held its own fairly well
but lost ground in the two last quarters
of the game.   Of the visiting team
Femie played the fastest game of the
whole field, and on the home side Guichon and Nash  were conspicuous by
their hard hitting.    Considering the
state of the ground, the wonder was
that more shots were not missed and it
says much for the players generally
that the ball was kept so frequently on
the go.   The game resulted in a win for
Kamloops by 3 to 1, nor need the home
team feel disgraced by the result as
owing to the slipperj  nature of the
ground there was a big element of luck
in the game, and it was to the team
with the most experienced ponies that
the game would go.   The visiting team
played for all they were worth and deserve their win, while the home team
are to be commended on the plucky
fight they put up to defend their cup.
After the game the onluckers return-
to the hotel where the R. M. R. band
gave some excellent selections which
were thoroughly appreciated by an
attentive audience. At two o'clock the
rain which had been threatening all day
started to pour down, and it was decided to postpone the races for a short
time. At three o'clock there being no
sign of a let up the committee after a
visit to the track reluctantly decided
that the horse races could not be run
off that diy, and at a meeting later in
the afternoon at which those interested
in the horses entered for the various
events were present it was unanimously decided to postpone the races till
Saturday (tomorrow) at two o'clock.
It was unfortunate that this postponement had to be made, but the state of
the track rendered this decision a wise
and necessary one. There is therefore
some good racing to be witnessed at
the Quilchena track tomorrow and it
is hoped that there will be a good attendance, as the polo club depend to a
great extent on the gate receipts to
make up the generous purses they have
put up for competition, and this young
and enterprising club deserve the support of all lovers of sport for the way
in which they have tried to foster and
sustain an interest in the sport of kings.

BORDEN'S ADDRESS.
The salient features of the address at Halifax the other day
by which Hon. R. L. Borden the
leader of the opposition inaugur-
gurated his Canadian tour are well
worthy of consideration. As parts
of the policy of the Liberal-Conservative Party he submitted that
the following articles were almost
essential.
More effective provision to punish bribery and fraud at elections,
to insure thorough publicity as to
expenditure by political organizations, to prevent the accumulation of campaign funds for campaign purposes and to prohibit
contributions thereto by corporations, contractors, and promoters,
to expediate the hearing of election
petitions and to prevent collusive
arrangements for the withdrawal
or compromise thereof, to provide
for a thorough investigation of
corrupt practices, and if necessary
to appoint an independent prosecution officer charged |with that duty,
to simplify the procedure thereof,
and to enforce the laws so amended.
A thorough aud complete reformation of the laws relating to the civil
service so that future appointments
shall be made by an independent
commission acting upon the report
of examiners after competitive
examination.
Such reform in the mode of
selecting future members of the
senate as well as make that chamber a more useful ard representative legislative body.
A more careful consideration of
the sources from which immigration shall be sought, a more rigid
inspection of immigrants, and the
abolition of the bonus system except under very special circumstances, and for the purpose of obtaining particularly desirable classes
of settlers.
The management and development of the public domain (in
which are to be included great
national franchises) for the puhlic
benefit and under such conditions
that a reasonable proportion of the
increment of value arising therefrom shall inure to the people.
The operation and management
of our government railways by an
independent commission free from
partizan control or interference.
The development and improvement of our national waterways,
the equipment of national ports,
the improvement of transportation
facilities and consequent reduction
of freight rates between the pi ice
of production and the market,
���whether at home or abroad, and
the establishment of a thorough
system of cold storage.
The reorganisation of the present
railway commission as a public
utilities commission with wider
powers and more extended jurisdiction so as to establish thorough
and effective control over all corporations owning or operating
public utilities, or invested with
franchises of a national character.
The establishment after due investigation of a system of national
telegraphs and telephones, under
conditions which shall be just to
capital already invested in these
enterprises.
The improvement of existing
postal facilities, especially in newly-
developed portions of the country,
and the inauguration, after proper
inquiry as to cost, of a system of
free rural mail delivery.
A fiscal policy which will promote the production within Canada
of all useful articles and commodities that can be advantageously
produced or manufactured from,
or by means of our natural resourc-
having due regard to the inter-
es
ests of the consumer, as well as to
the just claims of our wage-earning
population.
The promotion by negotiation,
legislation, and other constitutional means of a system of mutual
preferential trade within the Empire.
To restore their public lands to
the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan upon fair terms.
The unimpaired maintenance of
all powers of self-government which
have been conferred upon the
provinces of Canada under the
constitution.   ���

It is proposed to erect a magnificent
building at a cost of $2,000,000 in the
Strand, London in which will be concentrated all the offices of the Canadian
Government, as well as such provinces
as may desire to be represented at the
heart of the Empire. Plans of the proposed building are already published
and give an excellent idea of the location of the building and its character.
The proposed Canadian building will
have a frontage of 413 feet of the
Strand. The building w;ll tower high
above Somerset House which ll 0M *t
the great land marks of London. In
this building it is proposed that all the
various offices of the Canadian Government in London, as well as the offices
of the several provincial governments,
Bhall be grouped. There will be in addition a great hall in which a permanent
exhibition of Canadian products can be
maintained, also a n htt roct ption
room. The interior design is admirable,
special attention having bp>>n i.'iven to
the question of lighting and ventilation.
The central location can only be appreciated by one familiar with London,
the railway stations of five of the large
railway companies being within a mile
and a half of the site and very much
nearer and more accessible than the
present Canadian offices. The site is
surrounded by wide streets and mag-
nificient buildings and many more of
the latter are being erected. In short
the Canadian building will be in the
very centre of London, and hence in the
centre of the world.

The Rev. ��� was paying his usual
weekly pastoral call and was in conversation with Mrs. ���. In the midst
of the conversation the small son of the
family named Reginald, came running
in. His clothes were torn, and one of
his eyes were blackened.
"Reginald," said the preacher,
"Youve been fighting again. Your
clothes are torn and you have a black
eye. Fighting is very wicked. Come
here and let me pray for you."
"Aw, g'wan," said Reginald; "go
home and pray for your own kid. He's
got two black eyes!"
