Bulkley Valley Men Organize
For Holding of Annual
Fair at Smithers
AtameetingheldinSmitherson
Wednesday evening the Northern
Interior Exhibition Association
was formed, to hold annual fairs
representative of the Bulkley
Valley and its resources. The
derangement of the train service
by track trouble prevented the
attendance of some of those interested, but there was a good
representation of agriculturists.
R. E. Williams was Jn the
chair and Roy Miller acted as
secretary. The provisional committee appointed by the Citizens'
Association reported, recommending the formation of an association to arrange for an exhibition
at Smithers on September 11.
After a discussion of ways and
means the report was adopted.
.It was decided that membership
should be open to all farmers,
prospectors, miners, and business men of the Bulkley Valley.
It was also determined to hold
a two-day fair next fall, with
such attractions as will ensure a
large attendance. The date of
the fair was fixed for September
11-12.
An executive board, to arrange
for this year's fair and to prepare a plan for permanent organization, was elected, with the
following members:
Charles Barrett, Arch. Mclnnes, D. J. Jennings, J. C. K.
Sealy, John Hynes, H. Silver-
thorne, T. J. Thorp, D. Simpson,
G. C. Killam, P. McPhee, G. A.
Rosenthal, T. T. Dunlop, R. E.
Williams, A. R. Macdonald, Martin Saunders, Joseph Sexton, R.
O. Miller, A. D. MacKay, P. R.
White. This board will meet on
April 29, te choose its officers
and sub-committees.
Huerta to Receive

PRACTICALLY WIPED
Washington, April 17: As a
result of the discourtesy of Mexican officials at Tampico, who refused to return the salute of an
American warship, Huerta's government is menaced by United
States battleships, which have
been rushed to Tampico to demand recognition. A salute of
twenty-one guns will be demanded, to be answered by the American fleet. Huerta insists that
the United States vessels answer
gun for gun. but this has been
refused, and the salute will only
be acknowledged after the last
gun is fired.

THENEWCHIEFCONSTABLE
Of the new chief constable who
is to have charge of this district
on Chief Gammon's transfer, the
Fernie Free Press says:
Chief Minty has made good
while in this district by strict attention to the business of his department. He made a marked
improvement in the force shortly
after his arrival here, the type
of constable showing marked
improvement after he took
charge. This district now has
as fine a body of provincial police
as can be found  in the province.
A. C. Minty has had a wide
experience in police work in
British Columbia in the last 14
years. Prior to going on the
provincial force he was crack
driver for the B.X. stage running
from Ashcroft to Barkerville.
He holds the record for the fastest trip ever made on that road,
covering the 600 miles from Ashcroft and back between Wednesday noon and Friday night, with
day night. At 12:45 Mrs. Small,
housekeeper at the New Telkwa
Hotel, saw a glare through her
window. Looking out, she saw
a man emerge from behind Kennedy's pool room and go in the
direction of the bridge. The
fire, which had evidently been
set at the rear of the building,
was making rapid headway, and
although the alarm was instantly
given and a crowd rushed to the
scene, it was impossible to check
the flames, which swept through
the closely-built block, devouring
the Kennedy building, the restaurant, the Bigelow building and
J. Mason Adams' drugstore.
The residence of Dr. Wallace,
adjoining the drugstore, was also
burned, but much of the contents
was saved.
Spreading across  the  street,
building owned by H. A. Bigelow, Frank Charleson's office,
Schorn's old store and Chettleburgh & Sinclair's building, in
which there was a stock of machinery owned by Henry & Dunlop.
The greatest loss is that of
Louis 'Schorn, although Mr.
Adams suffers heavily in the destruction of his building and a
large stock of drugs and sundries.
The total loss will be little
short of $50,000. The only business buildings left on the main
street are the hotel and bank.
The hotel caught fire several
times, but the flames were extinguished. Sargent's big store,
on the next street, was untouched.
Constables MacAulay and Fairbairn are endeavoring to And
some trace of the firebug.

Athletic Social and
Dance Big Success
The basket social and dance
given in the Assembly Hall on
Monday night, under the auspices
of the Hazelton Athletic Association, was a huge success, financially and socially. Dancing was
continued till an early hour.
Messrs. Geary and Turnbull contributed vocally to the entertainment program. Special thanks
are due to the Misses Jackson, of
Glenvowell, who rendered vocal
and instrumental selections.
The sale of baskets under the
guidance of Bob Allen was the
feature of the evening, and realized the handsome sum of $305.
The committee in charge and
the members of the association
take this opportunity of returning thanks to the ladies who so
ably assisted them in making the
evening a success.

There was perhaps no item on
the list awaited with greater interest than that of agricultural
implements. The finance minister dealt with this question at
considerable length. He said a
most careful inquiry had been
made for over a year into the
cost of production of agricultural
implements on both sides of the
line, and as a result of the investigation it had been decided
to make a cut in the duty on harvesters, reapers, binders, and
mowers, from 17J to 12J per
cent.

Holds Annual Meeting-
Prospects Good for Cup

The organization was never in
better financial condition, and
there is every prospect of a successful season. The retiring
president, J. M. MacCormick,
and the executive were tendered
a hearty vote of thanks for their
untiring efforts to promote the
objects of the association.
Secretary Middleton announced a highly satisfactory condition
of finances, for which thanks
were extended to the committee
in charge of Monday's entertainment.
The following officers were
elected: R. J. Rock, president;
G. R. Middleton, secretary-treasurer; J. M. MacCormick, R. C.
Sinclair, R. E. Allen, Graham

entire line will be graded and
ready for track-laying by the
end of August.
Information given out at the
chief engineer's office states that
grading from the present end of
the completed line north of Kamloops to Blue River; Mile 141,
will be finished by the middle of
July and from the latter point to
Albreda Summit, Mile 182, by
the middle of August. On the
section between the Summit and
Yellowhead Pass, the grading
has all been done.
The line has been prepared for
steel from railhead near Cisco,
140 miles from Port Mann, right
through to Kamloops. Before
the various uncompleted sections
of the route can be linked up
with rails several bridges will
have to be finished.
Steel has been laid on 269 miles
of track, leaving 230 miles yet to
lie laid to complete the line

On a Long Tramp
There arrived in Smithers the

making the trip in 118 days.
The doughty musher, under the
terms' of his wager, started on
his present trip without a cent
of money.
Would Separate Asiatics
Vancouver, April 13: ��� The
Vancouver city council are discussing the segregation of Chi-
nese and Japanese children in
the city schools, in view of the
agitation now proceeding against
the co-education of Asiatics and
white children, as the outcome
of the Chinese murder case. The
council, describing the practice
as a menace, referred a resolution urging the school board to
make the change, to the city solicitor, in order to make clear the
city's legal position as to the establishment of separate schools.
The council also decided to buy
all lumber for the city from
firms employing white labor exclusively, provided the prevailing
prices can be met.
Some of the aldermen were of
the opinion that the resolution
did not go far enough; that the
city should extend a preference
to such firms even if it cost more,
and there was a general discussion as to why British Columbia
mills had difficulty in meeting
the competition of American
mills employing white labor.
Want Road to Stella
The settlers of Uncha lake, in
the Francois lake district are
agitating for a road from their
settlement to the railway at
Stella. The proposed highway
would prove of great benefit to
all settlers between Francois and
Ootsa lakes, and an effort will
be made to have an appropriation |
sufficient to provide for its construction included in next year's
estimates. The road system of
the Francois and Ootsa districts
has been much improved in the
last year or two, but a great deal
remains to be done before the
ranchers will have adequate
means of transportation, and the
road to Stella is regarded as one
of the most important requirements of this important section.

STYLE
J f* matter not generally
^, known or fully appreciated with regard to commercial printing is the (ad that
style, display (by which is
meant typographical arrangement) and type-faces are subject to change, as in the case
of clothing and other fashions.
<J Modern printing shows a
maiked tendency towards the
neat and plain in display with a
liberal use of margin, as opposed to the old-sTyle methods of
coarse, overcrowded and over-
ornamental composition. Not
every printer can give you the
better class of work. It is,
therefore, to your interesl to see
that your printing is done at
the mosl fully equipped commercial printing plant in the
Northern Interior, carrying a
large and high-grade slock of
stationery, and employing workmen of experience and ability.
