is at present the most important
market for Cuban produce.
Up to the Spanish-American
War, the island was in a very
backward and almost barbarous
condition, there being a continuous state of warfare between
the Cubans and the Spaniards.
That war, however, wrested the
island from Spanish control, and
a period of prosperity, under American suzerainty, has begun.
A large number of Canadians
are settling on the land owned
by the Canada-Cuba Land & Fruit
Co., and are establishing schools,
churches and other institutions
after the Canadian model.
Local and Personal
Robinson-Murcutt.
A wedding of unusual interest
took place on Monday at the
first Baptist church, Vancouver,
when Miss Ada L. Murcutt, F.
R. G. S., and Rev. A. T. Robinson, M. A., of Summerland, were
united in marriage by Rev. Dr.
Spencer, who is a life-long friend
of the bride. The ceremony was
witnessed by only the immediate
relatives of the bride and groom.
Mr. and Mrs. Robinson left for
Seattle immediately after the
ceremony, and after spending
their honeymoon in a tour of the
coast cities, will return and reside at "Connestoga," Rev. Mr.
Robinson's pretty home in Summerland. Miss Murcutt is one
of the best known and most successful woman lecturers on the
continent. She is a native of
Victoria, Australia, and as a result of a very thorough early
education showed great promise
and oratorical powers that caused
her to be in much demand. Rev.
Mr. Robinson has in recent years
also been quite prominent in literary as well as religious circles.
For weeks past Miss Murcutt
has been addressing very largely-attended meetings at various
places in the city, and in testimony of her popularity she was
presented with a handsomely illuminated address and a service
of silver plate at the conclusion
of last night's meeting in the
Vancouver Opera House, by a
few friends who were in the
secret. The address, which was
a handsomely illuminated piece
of parchment, executed by Mr.
T. Allen, was read by Rev. Dr.
Spencer, and formally presented
by Mr. T. T.   Langlois.

Will go to Cuba.
B. H. Jordan, a former resident of Penticton, but lately of
Vancouver, spent a few days
here this week disposing of his
property. Mr. Jordan has secured a position with the Canada-
Cuba Land and Fruit Co., of
Cuba, and will leave accompanied by his family for that island
in about a week. The company
comprising a number of Toronto
capitalists, have a large tract of
land, comprising several hundred square miles, which they are
developing and dividing into fruit
lots and selling at from $40 to
$60 per acre. Oranges, lemons
and other southern fruits are to
be grown. Mr. Jordan, who is
an experienced orange grower,
will be employed in that capacity in the work of the estate.
Cuba, lying in the path of the
trade winds, has an excellent climate, the maximum temperature
being 88 and the minimum 67 F.
There is a wet season lasting for
about four months during the
summer. The tobacco grown in
Cuba is world famous, and the
oranges are said to be of equally
high quality. Three days by ship
places the produce of the island,
comprising fruits and early vegetables, in New York.   That city
Government    Owenership    Reduces Rates.
The government ownership of
telephones in the province of
Manitoba is bearing good fruit.
At the sitting of the legislature
on Feb. 25 Hon. Robert Rogers,
'minister of public works, announced the new schedule of
| rates. In Winnipeg merchants
| and business houses will pay but
$39 per year instead of the $50
now charged, while residence
telephones will be but $25 instead
of $30. Extension sets are reduced from $12 to $6 per annum.
At Brandon and Portage la
Prairie business telephones will
be $26 instead of $35, while
the charges of $25 for residences
has been reduced by $5.
In the smaller towns throughout the province, in fact everywhere with the exceDtion of
Winnipeg, Brandon and Portage
la Prairie, the business rate will
be $20 instead of $24, and residences $15 instead of $18. Farmers now paying $24 will in future only contribute $20 to the
provincial treasury, and those
whose rate is now $30 will in
future only pay $25. In addition a number of reductions are
announced, for two party-line
services ranging from 20 to 30
per cent, and small reductions
will be made in long distance
rates.
Those having friends visiting them
will confer a favor by acquainting the
Press with the fact. All other local
news thankfully received.
Plowing is in progress on the
bench.

he will hold a series of special services for the next four weeks.
Jos. A. Nesbitt reported the

about two weeks ago, and this
week Chas. Were reports a
second.
The prospects are that the
coming summer will be the most
active from a business and building standpoint of any in the history of Penticton.
The Methodist Ladies' Aid will
be "At Home" to their friends
in the Methodist Church on
Tuesday evening the 9th inst.
All are invited.
A fourth department has been
opened in the Penticton public
school with J. F. Tupper as
teacher. A high school department will be next in order.
Penticton has a public recreation ground. Some day it will require a public park. Is there any
property on the lakeshore on
which an option might be secured?
Now that Penticton is incorporated let it guard jealously its
franchises. The public ownership of public utilities is practicable in city and municipal
administration at least.
As will be seen by adv. on
another page the annual general
I meeting of the Penticton Rifle
j Association is called for Monday,
15th inst.,  in J.   R.  Mitchell's

i bers is requested.
Mrs. G. M. Zinkan, who arrived in Penticton last week, has
completed the purchase of B. H.
Jordan's fruit lot. Mr. Zinhan,
who is the officer in charge of
the Canadian customs office at
Skagaway, Alaska, will arrive
shortly.
Jno. Orr and family left Thursday morning for their former
home in Chilliwack. Mr. Orr
has a farm in that place which
requires his attentions during
the spring and summer months.
The family will return to Penticton next fall.
The Right Rev. Dr. Dart,
Bishop of New Westminster and
Kootenay will hold Consecration
and Confirmation services at St.
Saviour's church on Wednesday
evening the 10th inst. Service
will commence at 8 o'clock. All
are very cordially invited.
We will give a year's subscription to the Penticton Press to
the first person who hands us
the names of three heads of families who get their mail at the
Penticton post office and who are
not subscribers to the Press.
We will also send the Press for
one year to each of the heads of
families so named. An offer on
the same terms is also made for
three resident bachelors.
It pays to advertise. J. J.
Hunter los\a pipe and put an ad.
in the last Saturday issue of the
Press. On Monday the pipe was
returned. This paper, being
read by practically everybody in
the district, is bound to bring returns to the careful and intelligent advertiser. Do not advertise with the idea of patronizing
the paper, but with an eye to
business. Think out your advertisements carefully, word
them so that they will attract attention and they are certain to
prove a profitable investment.
The Great Northern branch
now being surveyed between
Oroviile and Wenatchee is in direct line with the company's projected branch between Oroviile
and Penticton. There is no
doubt but that this road will
ultimately be extended to this
point. The distance from Oroviile to Penticton is less than
fifty miles, and by the building
of this, and the placing of a
steamer on the lake, the entire
Okanagan Valley could be
tapped. Great Northern trains
may yet be running into Penticton before those of the C. P. R.
Canadian Bible Society.
On Sunday at a mass meeting
in the Baptist church a branch of
the Canadian Bible Society was
formed in Penticton, having for
its officers, Mr. R. R. Thompson,
president ; Mr. C. F. Layton,
vice-president; Mr. P. H. Eraut,
treasurer; and Mr. J. F. Tupper,
secretary. The ministers of the
district are to be ex officio members of committees and the following ladies, two from each congregation, have been added to
the executive: Mrs: Jos. McDonald, Mrs. DeBeck, Mrs. M.
Campbell, Miss F. Thompson,
Mrs. Gahan, Mrs. McNeill, Mrs.
F. S. Wilson and Miss Yuill.
The Rev. T. W. Jones, secretary of the B. C. auxiliary, in a
rapid survey gave information of
the work in the Dominion. It is
understood that the society will
this year send their colporteurs
throughout the valley, and these
will carry many copies of the
issues of the organization.
Government Decision on  Local
Option.
Premier McBride has sent the
following letter to Rev. Dr.
Spencer, secretary of the Local
Option league:
"To Dr. Spencer, Vancouver,
B.C.:
"I have the honor on behalf of
the members of the government
to advise you htat the request of
the delegation, which on February 2 presented a petition to
them favoring the enactment of
local option legislation, has receives1 careful consideration.
"The importance of the question is, in the opinion of the government, such as to warrant a
pronouncement thereon by the
electors of the province.
"The decision has, therefore,
been reached that recource be
had to a plebiscite vote so that
the desire of the electorate of
the province may be ascertained.
"The date of the plebiscite and
the form in which the question
may be submitted will be communicated to you in due course.
"I have the honor, etc.,

This, in our opinion, is exactly
the correct thing to do. We did
not look for the passing of a local
option law this session, nor do
we think the government would
have acted wisely or justly in
passing one without first satisfying itself that the electorate desired it. The voice of the people
should determine such questions,
and the temperance workers of
the province will feel perfectly
safe in referring the case for decision to the ballot box.

B. C. and Railways.
A meeting of the executive
heads of the western division of
the C. P. R. met in Calgary on
the 26th ult. At that meeting
final plans were laid for the expenditure of five million dollars
on new lines or on the improvement of those already in existence. Two million dollars are
to be expended on the company's
irrigation works in southern Alberta. Although the expenditure
for the various points enumerated does not total the five million dollars, it would appear that
practically the whole amount is
to be expended in Alberta and
Saskatchewan. British Columbia
his received little notice,and,consequently, it is doubtful whether
there will be any new lines built
by the C. P. R. in this province
during the present year. Should
this prove the case, it will be a
great disappointment, and especially so to those who looked for
the linking of the Nicola and
Midway lines this year. '
Last fall this line seemed prac-
t'cally certain to begin this
s )ring. The survey was made,
and the route afterwards inspect-
e 1 and a favorable report as to
it; feasibility sent in. Since that
tine there has not been a whisper.
What is the matter with Brit-
hh Columbia anyway ? Why
d)es it not progress in railway
construction along with the other
western provinces ? The Dom-
i lion government has subsidized
tie line referred to by $8,200per
mile. The provincial government
h is steadfastly refused to give
a ly aid to railways. Can it be
t lat this is where the difficulty
li 3S ? If so, then the sooner the
B. C. legislature wakens up the
better. This province must have
railways, and more of them, and
if they cannot be got without
sabsidies, they must be got with
them. If the people of this
province could do no better, it
would pay them to build the re-
quired lines from the public
treasury and then make a present
of them to the railway compan-
ies. The people of Canada paid
twenty-five million dollars to the
C. P, R. to build our first transcontinental railway, and that
line has made the country worth
hundreds of millions where pre-,
viously it was worth nothing save
as a grazing ground for buffalo.
The same principle will hold true \
for British Columbia.
It gets monotonous to hear the
British Columbia legislature an-:
nounce session after session that
there will be no railway legisla- j
tion this year.     What under the j
sun are they sent there for ?
The Alberta legislature recent-'
lv, by practically a unanimous
vote, guaranteed the bonds on
1,681 miles of railway in that
province for $27,433,000. Prac- i
t'cally every corner of the province is provided for. That is a
progressive policy, and British
Columbia would do well to take
a cue from her younger sister
province.

(We do not hold ourselveH responsible for the

To the Editor of The Penticton Press :
Dear Sir,���As it has been
brought to my notice that a number of the members of the Penticton Board of Trade are ignorant of practically all matters appertaining thereto, generally
through their lack of interest in
attending the meetings held from
time to time, I trust that you
may be able to favor me with
sufficient space to publish the attached statement of receipts and
disbursements since the date of
the incorporation of the Board.

In addition the following information may be of some general
interest. Not including the pub-
j lie meeting called to discuss the
! formation of a Board of Trade,
j there have been held ten regular
j meetings and six meetings of the
': executive.
At these meetings some of the
principal subjects discussed and
passed in the form of resolutions
!were: A cemetery site, electric
j lighting, Main street wharf, inspection of Smith street bridge,
C.P.R. excursions to the Okanagan, post office building and staff
requirements, Okanagan river
bridge, municipal incorporation,
freight rates, cribbing of Penticton creek, small debts court, redistribution of electoral district,
fruit crop statistics, telegraph
system from Kelowna to Penticton, formation of fire brigade,
foreshore rights, daily boat service, to associate with other
Boards of Trade, county c-urt
circuit, a new court house, fruit
correspondents, customs port for
Penticton, Express Company's
rates, advertising grant, and
some others.
In conclusion, I might say that
the Board of Trade was formed
to look into the general needs of
the community, to endeavor to
correct any existing grievances
and so by proper representation,
to voice the public sentiment in
any matters of importance, and
it is only by those persons who
will take the trouble to make
such grievances known, that any
useful work can be accomplished.

Are extensive jrrowerH of all kinds of Fruit Trees, Shrubs, Roses, and Ornamental Trees, and
the members of the Arm are all practical nurserymen of 26 yaars experience, and have built up
the most successful and extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The growing of the stock, as well as every other detail in connection with the work, is
personally superintended by the individual members of the firm, und they work on the plan that
the best is none too good for their customers.
We have made large shipments of trees into the Okanagan Valley and can wive the names
of the latest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees are grown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that of the Okanawran Valley, and our trees are consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than are the Coast stock, being more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of fibrous roots, which count for much in making an investment in an orchard a safe and
permanent one.
We shall be pleased to hear from prospective planters, with a view to supplying them with
the best g a le of trees, true to name.
We wish to secure the services of a good reliable man to represent us at Penticton and
vicinity, and will make liberal terms to the right party, for all, or a part of his time.

T'ljs is a story of that great
north country of which it has
been said, "There's never a law
of God or man runs north of
fifty-three ;" a tale of impetuous
emotion, of brute strength and
courage, of swift and passionate
love and hate ; a tale vigorous,
forceful and absorbing, which
tells itself without fine words ;
a story of the hunger for gold
and the hunger of man for woman, brooking no interference or
rivalry, going straight for its object, as did ihe primitive man
before the time of laws and conventionalities ; of civilized man
turned back to savagery and losing no manhood in the turning.
Tarry awhile, O reader, with
these rugged men of Nome, and
you shall be refreshed and
strengthened in their company.
CHAPTER I.
GI.ENISTEH gazed out over
the harbor agleani with the
lights of anchored ships,
then up at the crenelated
mountains, black against the sky. He
drank the cool air burdened with Its
taints of the sea. while the blood of
his boyhood leaped within him.
"Oh. it's Hue���tine." he murmured,
"and this Is my country���tny country,
after all, Uex. It's in my veius, this
hunger for the north. I grow. I expand."
"Careful you don't bust." warned
Dextry. "I've seen men get plumb
drunk on mountain air. Don't expand
loo strong in one spot." He went
1 buck abruptly to his pipe. Its villain-
v ous fumes promptly averting any
danger of the air's too tonic quality.
"Gad, what a smudge!" sniffed the
younger man. "You ought to be in
quarantine."
"I'd ruther smell like a man than
talk like a kid. You desecrate the
hour of meditation with rhapsodies on
nature wheu your aesthetics ain't
honed up to the beauties of good tobacco."
The other laughed. Inflating his deep
chest. In the gloom he stretched his
muscles restlessly, as though an excess of vigor filled him.
They were lounging upon the dock,
while before them lay the Santa
Maria ready for her midnight sailing.
Behind slept I'nalaska, quaint, antique and Uussian. resting amid the
fogs of Bering sea. Where a week
before mild eyed natives had dried
their cod among the old bronze can-
uou now a frenzied horde of gold
seekers paused in their rush to the
new El Dorado. They had come like
a locust cloud, thousands strong, settling ou the edge of the Smoky sea,
waiting tlie going of the Ice that
barred them from their golden fleece
' ���from Nome the new, where men
found fortune lu a night.
The mossy hills back of the village
were ridged with graves of those who
bad died on the out trip the fall before, when a plague had gripped the
land, but what of thatV Gold glittered
In the sands, so said the survivors.
Therefore men came in armies. Glen-
ister and Dextry had left Nome the
autumn previous, the young man raving with fever. Now they returned to
their own land.
"This air whets every animal Instinct
In me." Glenlster broke out again.
"Away from the cities I turn savage.
1 feel the old primitive passions, the
fret for lighting."
"Mebbe you'll have a chance."
"How so?"
"Well, it's this way. 1 met Mexico
Mullins this mornin'. You mind old
Mexico, don't you���the feller that re
located Discovery claim on Anvil
creek last summer?"
"You don't mean thnt 'tinhorn' the
boys were going to lynch for claim
Jumping?"
���identical! Remember me tellln' you
about a good turn I done him once
down Guadalupe way?"
"Greaser shooting scrape, wasn't It?"
"Yep. Well. I noticed first off that
he's gettin' fat-high llvln' fat, too. all
in one spot, like he was playln' both
ends agin the center. Also he wore
di'mon's lit to handle with Ice tongs.
"Says 1. looklif at his side elevation.
'What's accented your middle syllable
no strong. Mexico?'
" 'Prosperity, politics an' the Wnl-
dorf-Astorler.' says he. It seems Mex
hadn't forgot old days. He claws me
Into a corner an' says. 'Bill, I'm goin'
to pay you back for that Moralez deal.'
"it   ain't   comln'   to   me.'   says   I
"That's a bygone.'
" 'Listen here,' says he. nn'. secln' he
wns in earnest. I let him run on.
'���" 'How much do you value thnt claim
o' yourn at?'
" 'Hard tellln'.' says I.    if she holds
nut like she rnn Inst fall, there'd ought
^to be a million clear in her.'
" 'How much il you clean up this
summer?'
" ' 'Bout four hundred thousand, with
luck.'
" ���Bill.' snys he. 'there's hell a-pon-
fltl' nn' you've got to watch that
trrouml like you'd wa'cb a rattlesnake.
Don't never leave 'em get a grip on It
or you're down un' out.'

an' I'm a gambler, but you saved my
life oncet, an' 1 wouldn't steer you

In the deck. There's a man comin' by

don't never let. 'cm gpt a grip on your

"Rah; He's crazy! I wish somebody would try to jump the Midas.
We'd enjoy thp exercise."
The siren of the Santa .Maria interrupted, Its hoarse warning throbbing
up the mountain.
"We'll have to get aboard," said Dextry.
"Sh-h! What's thnt?" the oilier whispered.
At first the only sound they heanl
was n sllr from the deck of the ste.ini-
er. Then from the water below (hem
came the la I lie of rowlocks nnd a
voice cautiously muffled.
"Stop!   Stop there!"
A skiff burst from the darkness,
grounding on Ihe beach benealh. .V
figure scrambled out and up the ladder leading to Ihe wharf. Immediately n second boat, plainly in pursuit of
the first one, struck on the beach he-
hind it.
As the escnplng figure mounted to
their level the watchers perceived with
amazement that it was a young woman. Breath sobbed from her lungs,
and, stumbling, she would have fallen
but for Glenlster. who ran forward
nnd helped her to her feet.
"Don't let them get me." she panted.
He turned to his partner iu puzzled
Inquiry, but found that the old man
had crossed to the head of the landing
ladder up which the pursuers were
climbing.
"Just a minute, you there! Back up
or I'll kick your face in!" Dextry's
voice was sharp and unexpected, and
In the darkness he loomed tall and
menacing to those below.
"(Jet out of the way. That woman's
a runaway." came from the one highest
on the ladder.
"So I Jedgc."
"She broke un"���
"Shut up!" broke In another. "Do
you want to advertise it? (iet out of
the way, there, ye blame fool! Climb
up, Thorsen." He spoke like a bucko
mate, and his words stirred the bile of
Dextry.
Thorsen grasped the dock floor, trying to  climb  up.   but  tho  old  miner
Tlie old minor stumped nn htx flntjert.
stamped ou his lingers, and the sailor
loosened his hold with a yell, carrying
the under men with him to the beach
in his fall.
"This way! Follow me!" shouted the
mate, making up the bank for the
shore end of the wharf.
"You'd better pull your freight, miss,"
Dextry remarked. "They'll be hero Id
a minute."
"Yes. yes! I.et us go! I must get
aboard the Santa Maria. She's leaving
now.   Come, come!"
Glenlster laughed as though there
were a humorous touch In her remark,
but did not stir.
"I'm gettlu' awful old an' stiff to
run," said Dextry, removing his mack-
Inuw, "but I allow I ain't ton old for
a little diversion lu the way of a rough
house when It conies nosin' around."
He moved lightly, though (he girl could
see in the half darkness that his hair
was silvery.
"What do you mean?" she questioned
sharply.
"You hurry along, miss. We'll toy
with 'em till you're aboard." They
stepped across to the dockhouse. backing against It.   The girl followed.
Again enme the warning blast from
tlie steamer and the voice of an officer:
"Clear awny thnt stern line!"
"Oh, we'll be left!" she breathed, and
somehow It struck Glenlster that she
feared this more_ than the men whose
approaching feet he heard, j
"You can make it all right," he urged
her roughly. "Y'ou'll get hurt if you
stay here. Run aloug and don't mind
us. We've been thirty days on ship-
hoard and were praying for something
to happen." His voice was boyishly
jlad. as If he exulted in the fray that
was to come, and no sooner had he
���ipoken than the sailors came out of
���lie darkness upon them.

The confederation of the British South African States is practically completed. It looks as
though Briton and Boer were going to work together harmoniously for the building up of a strong
and prosperous commonwealth,
such as Canada and Australia.
At a recent meeting of the
Vancouver city council, the principles of the singie tax theory
received important recognition.
A single tax resolution was introduced by Aid. Morton, supported by Aid. McMillan and
commented upon favorably by
Mayor Douglas and other members of the council. The Mayor,
however, expressed fears that
the system could not be carried
out this year. Before such a
change of policy was entered upon the assessment commissioners
should have full notice of the
council's intention so that the
assessment roll could be prepared in accordance with the
new system of levying the rates.
Comptroller Baldwin pointed out
that the city charter limited the
rate which the city might levy
to a cent and a third for general
purposes. With the assessment
for land values, as handed down
by the commissioners this year,
it would be impossible to raise
the necessary amount of revenue
from that source only, and keep
within the charter limits as to
the rate. A resolution was passed
that the exemption on improvements this year be 75 per cent,
the same as obtained last year.
During the year ending June
30, 1908, there were 22,966 miles
of railway in operation in Canada, a gain of 514 miles over
1907. The total capital invested
was $1,239,295,013. The net
earnings were 39,614,171 as a-
gainst $42,929,537 for 1907. or a
decreast of $3,375,366. The net
earnings last year thus yielded a
dividend of 3.19 per ceut. on the
invested capital.

The "Ladies' Field" on "K" Boots, June 20, '08
"It is said that when the British manufacturer and his workmen seriously put their minds
to beating their outside rivals they distance all
competitors, and in no casa is this more apparent than with the celebrated "K" boots. For
nearly half a century have they carried their
good name, which is a hall-mark of excellence.
;"K" boots hold their own everywhere and always. They wear splendidly, are exceedingly
comfortable and thoroughly smart in shape."

GROCERIES, PROVISIONS, BOOTS, SHOES, AND FURNISHINGS.
