FARMERS' MEETING
LECTURE ON FRUIT CULTURE AND
HORSES AND CATTLE.
Deputy Minister of Agriculture and the
Dairy Commissioner Give Interesting and Instructive Lectures to Residents.
The Farmers' Institute meetings this.
week were fairly well attended, the
outside meetings and stock judging
competitions at Lower Nicola being
perhaps the best attended. At Nicola,'
owing to many of the ranchers being
busy with threshing and getting in cattle, it was impossible to get enough together to have an outside meeting on
Wednesday, as arranged. The meeting
in the evening was however well attended, and tho��e present listened with
interest to the lectures given by J. K.
Anderson, Deputy Minister of Agriculture, and F. M. Logan, Dairy Commissioner.
Mr. Andersonn in opening his address
said he was glad to congratulate the
residents of Nicola on having secured
railroad communication. In the
near future he expected to send lady
lecturers into this district, and the lectures would be illustrated by means of
a magic lantern.
At present fruit culture was not of
the same importance to this district as
it was to others in the province. Stock-
raising and ranching were at present
the main resources, but there were
signs that the day of these was nearly
past, and that inte nsive farming and
fruit culture were coming to the front
in this district, and would necessitate
eventually the cutting up of the present
large holdings of land, into areas suitable for this purpose.
To those intending to go in for fruit
growing commercially, and it was to
those that his remarks would be applicable, two of the first questions to be
decided were location and site of the
proposed orchard. As to location,
transportation either by rail or water was
absolutely necessary, so that the products raised could be easily marketed.
The local market must not be depended
upon, as it was easily filled, but outside markets must be looked to, and
this province was exceptionally well
placed in this respect, having the prov-
incss of Alberta, Saskatchewan and
Manitoba at their doors and ready to
take a very large share of their products.
The English market was, he thought,
practically captured by this province in
the case of apples and other fruits, and
the government were determined to do
all in their power to assist fruit growers
to retain a hold of this the most profitable market we have.
As to site, the land chosen should
face either northerly or westerly, but
much depended on local conditions, and
this rule might require in some instances
considerable modification. As a rule
low lying land should be avoided, as it
is very liable to be subject to frost, but
good high land with a slope should be
given the preference. Near large
bodies of water the site might be lower,
as the air circulation which is always
present to a certain degree prevents
frost. Perhaps the most important
factor in the success of an orchard was
the varieties selected. He thought he
was safe in saying that fully seventy-
five per cent of the fruit trees at present growing in British Columbia would
eventually be either taken out, grafted
or otherwise disposed of. Names of
the best varieties suitable for any district could be obtained from the department of Agriculture. No part of
the province can grow all kinds of apples sucessfully, Some are better suited
to one part of the province than another, and it was a mistake to think
that one district was suitable for all
varieties.
Mr. Anderson very strongly advocated
planting nothing but one-year-old trees,
and advised the purchase of them from
provincial nurserieB. He described
how, after planting, the trees should be
trained, keeping them low and thus
preventing damage to them from winds
and storms. With regard to the distance, thirty feet apart was an average
distance, which would give about fifty
trees to the acre, and would be found
the best distance for standard varieties.
As to the use of fillers, the general practice was against the use of them, though
many orchardists did not carry this out
in practice, being generally unwilling to
remove them when the trees required
more room.
The preparation of the land previous
to planting was fully gone into, and the
advisability of thorough cultivation of
the land. The kind of planting called
���'post-hole planting" was in every way
to be avoided. As regarded pruning,
the different varieties require to be
studied, as each variety needs a special
method of pruning, and constant care
was roqured to avoid either too much
or too little pruning depending on the
variety.
In this district irrigation was an important factor and was absolutely essential. It had been demonstrated that
the best fruit was raised with a mini- j

mum of water and a maximum of cultivation. Generally the water should be
cut off in the early fall, or there was a
liability of winter killing. Much depended on local conditions. Many vari-
ties of apple trees being either self
sterile or self fertile, in the esse of the
former, care should be taken either to
plant alternate blocks of trees, or put
in several trees to act as impregnators
such as the Ben Davis, which is an excellent variety for this purpose. The
after care of orchards and the necessity
for spraying was gone into and excellent advice was given to prospective
buyers of fruit trees, by Mr. Anderson
at the close of his most interesting address.
Mr. F. M. Logan, Dairy Commissioner, then gave a most interesting lecture
on the horse, pointing out various defects and points to be looked after in
selecting a horse; the various breeds of
horses and the difference between a
thoroughbred, |the standard bred and
the draught horse. He went very carefully into the matter of caring for the
horse's feet and hoofs and the reasons
why particlar care should be bestowed
on these parts of the animal. He also
carefully poinied out the requirements
of breeders and the necessity they were
under to be careful in the selection of
suitable mares and stallions.
A hearty vote of thanks to the lecturers brought the meeting to a close.
Yesterday Messrs. Anderson and Logan visited the ranch of R. H. Winny,
and while there Mr. Anderson gave
some practical illustrations of pruning
and the type of tree to be avoided.
Mr. Logan gave a stock-judging competition on beef cattle, which those who
were in attendance found most interesting and instructive.
The attendance yesterday was but
fair, and it is hoped that the next time
the lecturers favor us there will be a
larger attendance, as there is much instruction and many benefits to be derived from these lectures and competitions.
Program of Poposed Legislation Will
Be Arranged -Coal Mines Regu
lation Act to Be Amended.
University Scheme.
The Provincial Legislature will assemble on January 16 next, according
to the announcement of Premier McBride. A proclamation calling the Legislature together will appear in the Provincial Gazette in the near future.
Members of the Provincial Government have been hard at work for some
time drafting their programme for the
approaching session. Hon. Mr. Bowser,
Attorney-General, has relinquished his
appearance at the Vancouver Assizes in
order that he may give his attention to
department matters. Mr. Fulton is expected to return at the end of this week,
which will permit of full executive sittings.
A session of the executive will take
place next Monday, at which a number
of important matters will be transacted.
The Premier was not prepared to say
just what the Government's programme
would be for the approaching session.
1'e stated, however, that the formation
of legislative propaganda was already
inviting the attention of the executive,
and would be taken up for serious consideration within a few weeks. Among
the bills to be brought down will be one
dealing with the Coal Mines Regulation
Act, but beyond this the Premier said
he was not prepared at present to go.
One of the principal sections of the act
regulating the operation of coal mines
applies to the point of qualification for
working underground, which is determined by examination. It is said that
over one hundred Chinese have successfully passed this examination during
the past six years. The men are employed at Union and Ladysmith, and it
is said have proved themselves capable
men.
In addition to the Coal Mines Regulation Act amendments, legislation is
promised with respect to the university
scheme, introduced by the Provincial
Secretary last session, in the form 01
an endowment of 2,000,000 acres of
land, to be selected and disposed of for
equipping the institution. The bill to
be introduced next session will deal
with matters having relation to the organization of a university staff and
kindred considerations.
as an important consumer of the metal,
yet his first thought would be nearer |
right than his second, for the Chinese
Empire has used 50,000 tons of copper
for making new coins within the past
two years, thereby increasing the circulation medium of the country to the
extent of four ounces for each inhabitant���for while 50,000 tons of copper is
a large quantity of metal, sufficient to
load 1,000 freight cars of the heaviest
type used on American railroads, it is
but a quarter of an avoirdupoise pound
per capita when divided among 400,000,-
000 people.
Only the expert or those engaged
most actively in the copper industry
have the slightest idea of the diversified
uses to which copper is put. Copper
enters into almost every form of human
activity, and the multiplicity of its uses
is most surprising. Electric light,
power and traction are immense consumers of the metal in the form of
wire, and telephones and telegraphs
find it indispensable, yet electrity requires only a trifle more than a quarter
of the metal made. The engineering
trades consume more than half of al
the copper produced, mainly in the form
of brass, but there are about a score of
friction metals and alloys, each having
its specific use, into which copper enters
as a component part.

Attempt to Break Jail.
A desperate attempt was made last
Saturday for jail delivery at New Westminster Penitentiary. Geo. Stone and
T. Walker were the ringleaders. Stone
approached Chief Instructor Imlah from
behind and dealt him a fearful blow
with a hammer, when Walker attacked
the prostrate man and dealt him several
blows with a scantling. The two convicts followed by others made a break
for the fence, but Assistant Warden
Stewart appeared and held them up
with his drawn revolver. The men
were cowed, especially when another
convict came to the assistance of the
officer. Stone and Walker have been
placed in solitary confinement. Imlah
was severely injured, but his life is in
no danger.

the province will be in attendance.
C.  P.  R. ENGINEERING STAFF ACTIVE IN THE DISTRICT.
Line May Be Extended From Princeton
to Summerland and Down the
Okanagan Lake Into Kettle RUer Valley.
A C. P. R. engineering party has
been in the field for several weeks engaged in a survey of the proposed extension of the Nicola branch to Princeton, in the Similkameen district, a distance of 72 miles. During his recent
visit at Vancouver President Shaugh-
nessy in an interview contented himself
with briefly announcing that the railway would be built "farther south,"
without indicating the destination.
The surveyors are in charge of Mr.
Carry and have already run a preliminary line between Quilchena and Aspen
Grove. From Princeton the line will
later be extended east to Summerland
on Okanagan lake, and thence down its
west shore to Okanagan at its lower
end. Thence the route will be over the
divide into the valley of the west fork
of Kettle river, and on to a junuion
with the Columbia & Western branch of
the C. P. R. at Midway in the Boundary
district. When completed this line will
give the Kootenays direct communication with the coast.
Mr. Carry last week drove over a
portion of the proposed route between
Princeton and Summerland, a distance
of 40 miles. The lateness of the season
when the engineers entered the field
would indicate that the C. P. R. is in a
hurry to undertake construction, in order to anticipate the efforts of the
Great Northern to be the first road to
operate trains direct between Vancouver
and the Boundary district.
The surveys via the west fork are regarded as showing that the C. P. R.
will not build from Penticton to Midway via the steep grades in the vicinity
of Anarchist Mountain. The route via
the west fork is easier of construction,
as no great elevations will have to be
overcome.
It has been decided to summon Dominion Parliament for November 28th.
This was decided at Saturday's meeting of the cabinet.
Ask Hindoos to Keep Away.
The Dominion Government is forwarding a letter to the Indian Office at
London, asking that representations be
made to Bombay looking to the carrying out of Canada's request that all
possible steps be taken to limit or discourage the immigration of Hindoos to
Canada.
$1500 REWARD.
The Uses of Copper.
The average man, if asked to name,
offhand, the uses of copper, would be
likely to reply that the metal was used
mainlv for coining pennies and making
wire, yet these uses employ barely
more than a quarter of the copper that
is produced. On second thoughts he
might smile at naming copper coinage

They are not different from your
own ancestors, they are not different from the people who crossed the
mountains, plains and seas, who
made the experiments and mistakes
that are forgotten long ago. They
are not different from the pioneers
who have given of their best to
build up the fabric of the empire.
They carry in their hearts the ingrained, one-hundred-year-old instinct of respect for the law as law,
and that is the strongest bulwarks
behind which a young nation can
grow.
"Much of the present stream of
immigrition that strikes the east side
of the continent has come from
countries where people have always
regarded law as an oppressor, who
have always looked up to government and authority with unreasoning terror. It is possible in years to
come that they will make good citizens, but of course they lack the
initial qualities of our own stock in
Great Britain, who do not suffer
from the drawbacks of those races.
It is not necessary to evolve an
elaborate scheme of education to instruct the immigration from Great
Britain how to talk the English
language, or to teach his children
the rudiments of citizenship. He
knows that he may have to learn
and much to unlearn, but at last he
will come about with the same
powers and possibilities as yourselves. Following the same ideas
even as your fathers did along the
lines that you know well, he seeks
only room to develop his powers
and his capabilities, and this room
I conceive is offered in your vast
dominion.
"it is possible that in your
strength you may think, or you
may be persuaded to think, that
this is not an urgent question, but
the time is coining when you will
have to choose between desired reinforcements of your own stock
and blood and the undesired rush
of races, to whom you are strangers, whose speech you do not understand, and from whose instincts
and traditions you are separated by
thousands of years. That is your
choice. For myself I think the
time for making that choice is on
you now."

Immigration Schemes.
Three distinct immigration schemes
are on foot for the purpose of bringing
out to this province three different
classes of English labor. These classes
are: The destitute of London; agriculturists from the rural districts;
clerks, etc., from the towns.
The first and most important of these
schemes is under the auspices of the
Provincial Government, and is so well
under way that one thousand desirable
immigrants will arrive in British Columbia some time next January. These
will be English agriculturists and they
will be allowed to shift for themselves,
the government being confident that
there is such a demand for labor in the
province that no immigrant will have
the slightest difficulty in securing situations. The work of selecting the immigrants has been entrusted to the
Salvation Arm.
The scheme for bringing out clerks
and townsmen is being fostered by a
London, England, syndicate, but the
work is still in its initial stages. It is
stated that this syndicate will populate
a large tract of unoccupied land on Vancouver Island.
Two New Ladies' Astride Saddles at Cost
