on Nicolt like, it to be undertaken immediately, the work hiving been author
lied by tbe management of the Ctntditn
Picific Rtilwty tt Montreal. At tht
pretent time the road, which runt from
Spencet Bridgi on th* mtm line of tht
Ctntditn Picific, it tome an miles short
of reicliiug Nioola like.
Announcement that the construction
of the externum htd been authorized
wu made todty by Mr. K. Marpole,
general superintendent of the C.P.R.
The den ra bill ty of putbing the road
right through to Nicolt hu been under
consideration by the C.P.R. for tomt
montht, ind while it wu generally
thought the work weuld be carried out,
there wtt no certainty tbout it u tht'
government subsidy on the line did not
extend to Nicola.
Mr. Marpole ttated todty that the line
thould be completed from Spences
Bridge to Nicola by the end of Ot
tolier. When Messrs. Lut A Mac
donell, oon.rac.ort for the road, htvt
completed their work th* line will b*
taken over and operated by the C PR.
By the end of October it it expected tbtt
both passenger and freight traint will
be running over tbe rtilwty, which tips
t very rich agricultural and cotl mining
dittriet, and renders it tributary to Van
.ouver. Some small tmount of freight it
now being handled over tbe forty-one
miles of road tlready built. It ia being
ttken in limply for the convenience of
tettien along the line.
Will the rotd be extended beyond
Nicola? Thia quettiou is agitating tbe
minds of hundreda of people along the
route from Nicola to Princetou. No definite information on thit point can be
secured from the CM'. R. authorities. It
it ttated that Ihe old surveys run from
Nicolt to Princeton, but it is tpparent
thtt the C.P.R. hu yet res-hod no determination u to building beyond
Nicola. It it believed, however, thtt it
it only i mttter of time before Prinoeton will be retched by the railway tud
pns-ilil) it mty continue to a junction
with theC.PR.it Midway.

In another culumn particulars are given ol the amount of
Iruit shipped from the province
last year. The fruit industry
has certainly made great progress in the last few years in
this province and when one
considers the high quality of
the fruit shipped and the comparatively short period in
which the industry has conv- io
the front, one is compelled to
wonder what the output in the
next few years will amount to.
It is an admitted fact that fruit
may be grown in almost any
part of the province, climatic
and geographical conditions
necessitating a choice ol the
hardier varieties in some cases.
That fruit growing will be
another of the many resources
of the valley must be admitted
by anyone who has studied the
facts. While, perhaps, not so
wel' suited for the growth of
peaohes, apricots, etc, there
are quite a number oi excellent
varieties of apples, pears,
plums, cherries, etc., which
grow to perfection in this district, besides many varieties of
small fruits, while in a few favored spots, peaches, grapes,
etc., may be grown to advantage. A choice of some of the
hardier varieties of tbe tree
fruits may have to be made in
some parts of the district, but
if the peculiarities of the soil
moisture, position, etc.. are
taken into consideration and
intelligently utilized in a common sens'!- way there need be
no fear of failure.
The question of irrigation is
one of the most serious considerations in a district like this
a9 it would be almost impossible to raise crops without an
abundant supply of water
That the supply of water from
mountain streams for irrigation
purposes is limited, should
always be borne in mind and
care should be taken to see
that a sufficient supply of
water is obtainable and the
legal right to use it secured.
There need be no fear with
regard to water for irrigation
purposes in the Nicola valley
as with the exception of a few
outlying places, water in plenty
can easily be brought on to
those lands requiring it. It is
only a question of time before
practically the whole of the
valley will be one large orchard supplying fruit to the
mines in the vicinity and shipping high grade fruit to less
favored localities.
Getting Better.
The Grand Forks Gazette believu that
the world, tt leut the Englith .peaking
world, is improving rapidly in the matter
of temperance reform. One reason for
thit  it  that, in antgeof intensity  of
i   business, ell-ieney and reliability demand
men who  keep sober tt   night u well u
' daytime, tnd is, therefor.-, largely a
business as well aa a moral reason. It
says reiniiiiscently That in this whole
inaitur of intemperance the world it
getting better no careful scholar of to-
Otology -ill doubt. Si .nstict, of courte,
cm be manipulated, ami while tome will
multiply lean* to thow ihat druukunnesa
it iiicr.-Mini, oiherB will prove the reverse V ,t ourselves we have no doubt*.
in the r.o_iaii. of _ihi years ago It w_s
potsiMr to see ��u h in invitation ts the
fol|o_<n_ on a publican's place of bum
nets: "Drunk for t penny. Dead
drunk for twopence. Drunk with straw
to lie on, threepence." Towards the end
of last century Johnson, talking with
BoBwell on the change in public manners,
observed: "I remember when til the
decent people in Lichfield got drunk
every ni-Ju, tnd were not the worse
thought of." Much later than thit, however, the habit wtt widespread tod regarded with an etsy and tolerant good
humor. We were especially struck when
reading Pickwick some time tgo to note
the extraordinary facility with which the
England of lhat day drank itt brunt
away on the slightest provocation.
Tbe Hazelton Murder.
The hunt for Simon Gun ah noot, the
murderer of Mat LeClaire, well known
ln thi. district, is still going on. There
tre several parties, including* detachment of the Northwest Mounted Police
on ihe trail of the murderer, tnd it may
tie several days before news is received
from any of thete. The country towtrdt
which the murderer it hetding it practi-
otlly a howling wildnerness for hundreds
11 miles tnd is tottlly uninhibited, save
hy some of the Yukon telegraph service
Half and these it would be an easy matter for the fug tive to troid,
Most of the press of the province have
been wrong in their reference to Max
LeClaire, who waa recently murdered
near Hazelton. Hit mother wu a
daughter of tht fatuout Peter Grant, of
the Hudson. Bay Company. She waa a
ward of Sir Jauiet Douglat and Dr.
Helmcken LuClaire't mother residet in
Kamloops, a brother in St. Louis, one in

velopt, of an overproduction of gnud,
clem cnmmer.iil varieties. The province is most favorably aituated, in being
contiguous to the vast plains to the east,
where fruit growing ou a commercial
basia is not likely ever to bt I succeis.
The territory it bound to liter-Mi rapidly
in population tnd the consumption of
fruit will be enormous. It it t cum nt

It the fanner* of the prairies succeed
within t comparatively few yetrt in laying by auhVient to keep them iu comfort
for the rest of their lives, they should
look to British Columbia with itt congenial climate, magnificent scenery tnd
tremendous unexplored and undeveloped
nttural resources as a place in which to
spend their declining years.
There is littl* need for thit province to
tpend money II trying to induce itnmi-
grtntt from oil cr countries to come here j
tnd settle. 1 lie best immigration work
that British Columbia can do is to develop tht fruit gr. wing industry aud io
