Yesterday morning the Daily News, on the authority of a number of reputable men, published a
story stating that the fishermen on the Fraser engaged in catching spring salmon were excited by a
rumor to the effect that the canners who are handling this species of fish would refuse, in spite of statements to the contrary, to pay the five cent rate wdiich
the union men had demanded. Later in the day at
least one of the canners took exception to the item
that had appeared in the News, asserting tha' he
was buying spring salmon from the men right along
and paying them their five cent rate. He also said
that the story in the News implied that there was
trouble between the canners and the men over the
price to be paid for sockeyes. It is possible that
such an idea may have been inadvertently conveyed
by the published report, but it certainly was not intended. All the information the News has is that
certain fishermen even yet persist in saying that the t
canners are not paying the full rate for spring sal- J
mon, while some of the canners deny the statement j
made by the men and others simply remain silent.

Socialisi members) is fast slipping
out of his grasp. Disaffection is rife
on the government side of the house
and the premier can never feel sure
that he will command a majority
should any difficult  situation arise.
Recently (without a thought of
politics, of course) the premier and
Hon. R, F. Green have been making
a tour of the province. They have
been penetrating to every conceivable
nook and cranny, carrying glad messages of appropriations for roads,
trails, bridges, steamers and court
houses. And now Mr. Hawthornthwaite. who has for three sessions
been the premier's main prep in the
house, has started out on a similar
tour: but, being more worldly wise
than the premier, candidly announces
through the interior.
It was an interesting speech which
Mr. Hawthornthwaite delivered���fight
fill, but comparatively free from verbal extravagances. There was no m:s-
taking the veiled irony with which
Mr. Hawthornthwaite spoke of the
McBride administration as "the firs'
conservative government British Columbia ever had," nor of the sincerity
of his opposition to stout John Oliver.
As a government, and as individuals,
the first conservative government
British Columbia ever had does not
command his respect; as an opponent,
John Oliver rouses every fighting
quality the leader of the Socialist
party possesses. The member for
Nanaimo does not make the mistake
of taking the member for Delta cheap.
On  Dangerous Ground.
It was the Columbia & Western

Hawthornthwaite as a tactician. Tu

This action on the part of the Liberals he was careful to impute to the
fact that the vote in committee was
not recorded and so could not become
public immediately; he was equally
careful to conceal the probability that
the coolnes which the Liberals displayed towards his bill at this stage
might quite reasonably have arisen
from natural resentment at his unexpected stand in favor of the Columbia & Western land grant.
His "Pact" With McBride.
After he had finished his speech he
was brought to bay on this matter of
the land grant by a straight question from a friendly "heckler." "I
would like to ask the speaker of the
evening," said the questioner, "if he
was compelled to vote for this land
grant?" Said Mr. Hawthornthwaite in
reply: "We were practically compelled. Those two bills���one to enable a

Agricultural Conference in Jamaica.
Mr. Richard H. Frost, of Kingston,
Jamaica, speaking about agricultural
questions presently occupying the attention of his countrynient, stated
that endeavors were now being made
with the view of holding an intercolonial agricultural conference in the
island at the beginning of next year.
"Arrangements had been nea.-,y
completed about the middle of last
year for holding a conference of this
kind, but owing to a change in the
Royal Mail Company's service, the
project was abandoned.
"Representatives are going to Eng-j
land to further the scheme,   and   ne- j
gotiations will be opened up with the
Bister colonies requesting    them    to j
take part in the conference.
"A gathering of this kind should do j
an immense amount of good, and tlie

Empire together should help on to a j

great extent the much-discussed preferential trade.
"Another important feature of the
conference would be the question of
minor products. The great drawback in the West Indies during the
past has been that too much attention
has been paid to one or two industries
while others, which could be developed into equal Importance, have been
overlooked or entirely ignored.
"A few years ago it was thoug'it
that the sugar industry was the only
one to which any importance should
be attached, while today people are
depending too much on the fruit in

I and   alleges   waste   by   cutting  down
| trees,    fences    and    destroying    the
; premises  and  claims  $09.00  for  rent
and $200 damages and an injunction.
The defendant traverses the plaint
save admitting that $9.00 is due  for
i rent and counterclaims for $9.So   fiu-
certain  work  done by him  at Plaintiff's request.
The lease, which is the work of m
amateur, provides in the event of io
improvements being made by the said
lessee, the lessee agrees to pay the
lessor $60.00 yearly instead of $36.0C
after the first year. There are no ini
provements specified in lease.
The evidence was voluminous an
very contradictory. From the plaintiff's tale one might be justified ii
supposing that the premises in question were a recently discovered section of the garden of Eden located in
Burnaby, while the defendant described it as a howling wilderness.
Some idea of the real value of the
premises  may  be gathered  from th-3
fact    that    immediately    before    the
lease in question was executed, plaintiff offered to lease the premises to
a Mr. Hopkins for $1.00 a month, for
5 years and which offer was declined.
I Mr. Hopkins who appears to be an In-
, dependent and ii liable withness, well
! acquainted with the    premises,    says
the place is in better order than whon
Bramwell leased it, and that defend
ant has made improvements and   es
timates the total amount  of damage
at $5.00.
As to the increased rent there
might be considerable difficulty in
determining, owing to the vague vny
in which the covenant is expressed
bow to give effect to plaintiff's contention if no improvements were
made. Vide Kemble v. Farren. (!

this age of voting contests it is seldom that a popularity contest is conducted under civic auspices. In this
city there is an association known as
the Twenty Thousand Cluf>, which
has for iis object the boosting of the
City of Nelson and the increasing of
the population to 20,000 in five years.
The association is semi-official in nature, but is recognized by the city
council as a regular body.
With the object of getting a large
membership in the shortest possible
time the Twenty Thousand Club started a popularity contest on the first
of this month and it closes on Saturn
day night next. Mayor Gillett is official referee and next Saturday night
he will make his decision.
Two  Popular Candidates.
Two popular young ladies are being
balloted upon for the honor of being
the most popular young lady in Nel-
i son and for a trip to the coast cities.
i The winner will visit   the   cities   of
j Vancouver. New Westminster, Victor-
la,    Seattle.   Tacoma.   Portland    and
Spokane at the expense of the city,
I and, needless to say, both contestants
i are working   hard    for   the    double
I honors.
The contest is fast becoming one
: of the live topics of the hour in this
bustling little city, and many a young
man foregoes his tobacco or some luxury for a week or so to purchase a
membership ticket in the club and
to win the gratitude of one or other
of the fair contestants.
Miss McCandlish Leads.
Miss Mabel McCandlish, daughter of
the proprietor of the Silver King hotel, has a slight lead over her opponent at present, but Miss Jean Cameron is fast gaining ground. She is
book-keeper in The Daily News office
nnd is very popular among the business men. who promise to roll up a
big vote in her favor next week. Miss
Cameron has a bad case of "newspaper fever" and is an enthusiastic
member of the "fourth estate."

Henley, England. June 25.���The
residents of this riverside town who
reap a rich harvest yearly from the
regatta are anathematizing Coach
Fletcher oi Oxford. They realize
that their pockets will be touched if
the proposition to exclude Americans
from future regattas is carried, and
they do not like the prospects. There
are indications that considerable opposition will develop against Mr.
Fletcher's sweeping resolution. He
contends that the American National
Association of Amateur Oarsmen did
not properly investigate the amateur
standing of the vesper oarsmen.
Joseph Wright, stroke of the Argonaut
i Canadian i crew, denounces the
Fletcher resolution as being an 'insult to American colleges." He said:
"If the resolution is carried, it will
create a lot of bad feeling. It is
manifestly unfair to east a slur on
the amateurism of over forty big rowing clubs because of one or two black
sheep. Amateur rowing is the purest
of sports in America anel Canada."
Sir John Edwards-Moss (a high
Oxford-Eton authority on rowing) is
not especially hostile to American entries but he considers Henley is not
the proper course for international
racing, because under conditions of
wind, a second rate crew might win
through having a  sheltered position.
The Canadians bravely faced a
heavy wind this afternoon, rowing
over the entire course. They started
at 40 strokes per minute and finished
at 38 strokes. Time 23 minutes, 35

The local senior lacrosse team will
on Monday next meet its old time
rival, the Vancouver twelve, for the
first match of the present season. The
game is to be played at Recreation
park, Vancouver, and promises to be
a "corker" from start to finish. Vancouver is not too confident that victory
will rest on her banners; but the
officials of the Terminal City club
have determined that everything that
can possibly be done to win the notice
of that coy bird will be done. As for
New Westminster���well, she has he1-
team of home growns and is satisfied.
If skill, speed and knowledge of the
game will suffice, success is assured.
"There will be a number of changes
in the Vancouver team for the coming match," says the Vancouver Province. "Gibbons, the boy with the
sure eye and ready stick, will be in

happening around the territory of
point and cover point respectively. K.
Campbell and W. Payne will be on
the defence field, and for the coining
match Bob Springer will be seen In
the green and maroon uniform again.
He will play first defence, while
Campbell and Payne will attend to
things at second and third. General
regret is expressed in lacrosse circles
that Garvey will not be able to play
in this match. In his place, however;
will be Bob Cameron, the speedy
sprinter, who will be back at his ol 1
position of centre field feeling faster
and stronger than ever after the rest
which he has been forced to take
from the injuries which he received in
the match on Victoria day. These
players will in all probability constitute the team's lineup as far as centre field. For the home division there
are eight good candidates���all so good
in fact that it promises to be a delicate matter to choose the remaining
five to make up the team. Capt.
Matheson will of course be one of the
five, and the seven from whom the
selection will be made comprise Clarkson. Watson, Knight, Dodds. Douglas, Godfrey and Wilson, the former
Brantford player. An announcement
regarding the referees for the big
match will be made very shortly. It
is expected that local men will officiate on that occasion. Among
the arrivals from the East on Saturday's delayed expres was Mr. George
Tuck, a former Brantford player, who
Intends to make his home in this city
