Residence for Otumda. Premier.
The Dominion Government is said te
have secured the Currier mansion on
Street, Ottawa, latterly owned
by Senator Edwards, as an official residence for the present and future premiers. The building is a handsome
structure located in well wooded grounds
tnd is quite close to Rideau Hall.
Government Agent at  Port Slmrson.
F. W. Valleau has been appointed
government agent at H.izelton. For
some time the agent at Port Simpson
has been overworked and this action
of the provincial government will relieve the congestion at that point as it
will divide the business of the district
between the two offices.
Elections ln March.
An Ottawa evening papersays: "We
have it on the very highest authority
that Sir Wilfred Laurier has made up
his mind to appeal to the country in
March next. This may be taken as
practically official, as it comes from
tht most reliable sources."
ecies in this respect are likely to
be realized very shortly. One
reason for the seeming apathy in
regard to this class of horticulture
here, is that no market waa bandy,
and those in a position to obtain
results, confined tbeir attention to
stock raising. This is likely to
be altered very soon, and arrangements are already in progress for
the tub-division of at least two of
the large properties in the neighbourhood of this place.
Other places in the province
have been extensively advertised
as fruit districts, and there is no
question that the Nicola district is
in many respects equal to if not
superior to many of these widely
advertised and boosted districts.
A well known expert, who visited
the district recently wis agreeably
surpri ed with what he saw at the
different orchards he visited, and
was most decided in his opinion as
to the suitability of this district to
raise fruit of the very highest grade
and <iuality.
In our own midst there are people who have persistently scouted
the idea of fruit growing in this
district, and that too with the evidence to the contrary before their
eyes, but this class are to be found
in every district, and while in the
end their sneers and dismal prophecies of failure only accentuate the
success which was bound to come,
they unfortunately retard the pro-
utmost advantage, and made to do its
lull water duty. There was no doubt
that something could be done to ensure
the development of more land than was
at present benefiting by the available
water supply.
Under Pruf. Carpenter's advice the
government will for.auiate the policy
whioh it has pledged itself to crystalize
i'lto legislaton affecting irrigation, and
it is now certain that a sweeping measure .vill be brought down at the next
session of the legislature.

The public schools of the province
were reopened on Monday. During the
holiday season more or less controversy
was going on as to the standing of the
different pupils, both teachers and
others claiming the higher percentage
for their favorites. It was stated that
certain pipils made the highest marks
on record. It is doubtful if the teach- ] 3ioo Westminster Koad,
ers of the province can come up to the
record of the New Westminster high
school, students of which have never
been more brilliantly successful than
during the past year. The school is in
charge of the most capable and efficient
teacher of the highest educational standard in the province, Hector M. Stramberg, whose pupils during the past
twenty years, have perhaps made the
highest percentages on record.
Of the ten students abroad the past
year all passed their examinations without failing in a single subject. Of
these, Thorlif Larsen received the degree of M. A. from the University of
Toronto and won the Rhodes Scholor-

To Impeach Justice Martin.
The Vancouver Bar Association at a
meeting held last week appointed a committee to take steps to bring about the
impeachment of Mr. Justice Martin.
The action is based on the refusal of
Mr. Justice Martin to attend the recent
civil assizes in Vancouver at the request of the chief justice. At the time
there tiers 53 cases to be heard and the
extra work heaped on the shoulders of
Mr. Justice Clements causeu vexatious
delays as well as testing that gentleman's endurance to the limit.

Rod and Gun.
With a long and varied list of contents the August number of " Rod and
Gun and Motor Sports in Canada," published by W. J. Taylor, at Woodstock,
Ont., is more than usually welcome.
Camping with an Automobile gives an
account of the efforts ever being made
to bring into closer contact the startling contrasts of civilization as compared with the peaceful calm of the backwoods. Now that a sportsman can go
in fair comfort from his own door to
the solitude of the health-giving northern woods the exodus may be expected
to increase to the advantage of those
who are able to thus enjoy their vacation, and to the education in the art of
the new mode of locomotion of those
quiet dwellers in the woods. Mr. J. E.
Campbell gives his diary of a successful trip of a party of hunters in the
north of British Columbia. When the
adventures and experiences of this
party are read every sportsman will
feel a desire to visit that part of Canada
for himself and see with his own eyes
something of the wonderful scenes in
mountain, valley, lake and river British
Columbia has to show, to say nothing
of the equal wonderful sporting facilities in both game and fish open to
sportsmen in the Province. There is
plenty about fishing, and shooting is
not forgotten, while an account of the
virgin ascent of Mount Begbie is excellent reading. A settler's view of
the dog hunting controversy should not
by any means be overlooked; while
New Brunswick is to be congratulated
on the formation of a Protective Association under such auspices as promise
a career of usefulness unsurpassed
throughout Canada.

A drunken row at the Sullivan reserve
resulted in two Indians Peter Mclnnes
and Johnnie Moon appearing before the
local justices on Monday. Moon was
charged with assaulting Mclnnes and
doing him bodily harm. The evidence
was most contradictory, and as the case
proceeded it became evident that both
men had been drinking heavily, resulting in a fight in which both men received injuries, Mclnnes being badly cut
and bruised about the head and Moon
receiving a knife wound under the arm.
Mclnnes pleaded guilty to being drunk
and a fine was imposed, Moon being
also fined and sentenced to three months
hard labor.
