"Canada," a magazine published in London, Eng., in its issue
I of Jnly 24, fills one page with
two fine half tone engravings,
The one is a cut of the city of
Nelson, B. C, and the other
view has as its title. "Packing
apples in Nelson, B. C." Strange
to say, this latter is a view of a
Peachland orchard in which two
| packers are engaged in wrapping
and packing peaches in peach
crates. On the end of each box
may, by the aid of a magnifying
glass, be read "Peachland Trading Co." and "Peachland
This magazine is sent throughout the British Isles purporting
to give correct information to intending emigrants to Canada.
Probably the blame should not
be attached to the publishers, for,
living at the distance they do
from this country, they cannot
be expected to trace the authenticity of every photograph submitted to them for application.
One would imagine, however,
that even the average individual
in the Old Country, where
peaches are not grown, would
have at least known that the
trees represented in the picture
and the fruit being packed were
not apples.
However, the true culprit is
not to be sought in the Britiah
Isles but right here in British
Columbia. The same person, or
persons, who furnished the
photograph of the city of Nelson
also furnished the cut of the
Peachland orchard, and was responsible for applying it to Nelson rather than to Peachland to
which it belonged. This is not
the first attempt of Nelson land
boosters to sail under false colors, or to build up the reputation
of Nelson as a fruit growing district, at the expense of the Okanagan. Such actions must be
backed by a most contemptible
spirit, and should no longer be
tolerated. It is also the duty of
"Canada" to rectify the error.
Kelowna Regatta.
The regatta held under the
auspices of the Kelowna Canoe
Club on the 11th and 12th was
certainly a brilliaut success. We
must congratulate the committee
who by their untiring energy
have proved that it is possible to
keep three or four thousand
people amused and interested for
two days in water sports only.
- The chief items on the programmes of interest to outsiders
were, of course the war canoe
races. - In the two senior events
for the Knowles and Megaw
cups and medals, Kelowna won
two very hard races, Summer-
land making a good second in
the first event and Peachland in
the secend. Kelowna being the
only entry in the junior race, the
crew paddled over the course in
good style.
Some of the ladies' races were
exceedingly good, there being
some very close finishes.
Professor Wilkinson gave some
very interesting exhibitions of
diving, life saving, etc.
The rest of the events on the
programme, too numerous to
mention in detail, were all run
off in good style.
The new promenade and club
house were decorated very prettily with bunting, Chinese lanterns
and various colored electric
lights, and at night looked like a
scene from Faryland.
Last year we were pleased to
take our hats  off   to   Kelowna
when   that  town was awarded
nearly all the prizes for fruit at
I the Spokane Fair.    This year we
; have to do bo again as Kelowna
! certainly leads in sports.

Good Grade for V. V. & E.
An erroneous impression that
the ronte of the V., V. & E. railway over the Hope mountains between the Similkameen district
and the Fraser river valley constitutes a veritable toboggan
shute involving heavy operating
expenses was dispelled today by
Mr. A. H. Hogeland of St. Paul,
chief engineer of the Great
Northern railway.
"Changes in the location of the
unbuilt portion of the V., V. & E.
route are now under consideration. Two survey parties are
now at work in the Hope range,"
said Mr. Hogeland to The Province at the Hotel Vancouver.
"We feel quite confident that in
the revised survey we will be
able to secure a grade one per
cent, on westbound and a two per
cent, grade on eastbound traffic.
From the inf> rmation now in our
possession we have every reason
to believe that the mountains do
not constitute the insurmountable
barrier people suppose them to
"The route of the proposed line
across the mountains was completed and filed with the government nearly two years ago. Going west it follows the Tulameen
and Otter rivers to the summit
and descends the- western slope
via the Coquihalla river to that
river's confluence with the Fraser river near Hope. From that
point it will extend to Abbotts-
ford at the international boundary, where connection will be
made with the completed section
into Vancouver.
"Our road will be completed into Princeton from the east early
this fall. Princeton is just east
of the Hope mountains. The
eastern section of the Hill line in
Canada is built and in operation
from Laurier, a point on the international boundary, to Keremeos in the Similkameen district,
a distance of over 160 miles. At
Laurier the line connects with
another Hill road extending to
the main line at Spokane. At
several points between Laurier
and Keremeos the line dips into
United States territory in order
to secure the necessary gradients.
"I am unable to state when
the link binding Vancouver with
the Kootenays will be finished,
but it is certain that the work
will be prosecuted with energy
and dispatch," said Mr. Hogeland in conclusion.

At Naramata, Thursday, Aug. 26

under the auspices of the Naramata Amateur Athletic and
Aquatic Association, on Thursday, afternoon Aug. 26, 1909,
commencing with a band concert
from 1:30 to 2:0 given bv the

The great success of the last
regatta has spurred the management to greater efforts and everything points to one of the
most exciting and spectacular
events of the season. Arrangements for handling the crowd are
greatly improved, the capacity of
the grandstand has been nearly
doubled and the arrangements
are complete in every way for
providing the brightest and snappiest five hours sport ever offered to the public in the Okanagan.
On the enlarged grandstand
there are 20 boxes, seating 8 persons each. Box seats, 50c, full
boxes, $3. Grand stand seats

There were 30,000,000 less cigarettes smoked in Canada last
year than in 1907. The decline
was due entirely to the restrictive legislation put through parli-
ment by the government during
1908. It is believed that the law
actually prevented smoking of
some 40,000,000 to 50,000,000 cigarettes by the boys of the country, as the consumption was an1
creasing until the law was put into force. The total consumption
of cigarettes last year was about
360,000,000, compared with 400,
000,000 the previons year.���Gazette, Grand Forks.

Local Option.
Premier McBride has repeated
the intention of the government
lo take a plebiscite to ascertain
whether the province wants a
local option law or not. He has
informed Dr. Spencer that ample time will be given between
the announcement and the taking
of the plebiscite. It is probable
that the plebiscite will be taken
at the next general election
which must of necessity take
place within a year and may possibly, but not probably, take
place this fall. At the general'
provincial election, would be the
most opportune time for taking
tlie plebiscite as at lhat time a
more representative vote would
be obtained than if the plebiscite
1 were taken at any other time.
It should be borne in mind that
the carrying of the plebiscite  in
! favor of local option does not, as
as some imagine, institute prohi-
l bition,     It   is   merely   an   ex-
: nression   on   the   part   of   the
voters as to whether they desire
I to have the prerogative regard-
ling the sale or prohibition of the
liquor traffic.    If this plebiscite
i carries, the Legislature will pass
a local option act giving the cit-
j ies and municipalities power, by
| vote of the electors  to prohibit
the sale of   intoxicants  within
their   own   limits.     Whether a
I mere majority or a two thirds
vote  will  be required to carry,
j wil], of course, be determined by
;the act passed by the Legislature.    The taking of the  forthcoming plebiscite may seem like
taking a plebiscite for the privilege of taking a plebiscite, but
1 the temperance element of the
1 province are disposed to take the
j government at its offer'and will
be content to abide by the decis- <
ion of the polls.
We   cannot   understand   why
any elector should desire, by vot- ���
ing against a local option act, to j
curtail his own electoral powers, |
but that many will do so is quite I
certain   and    the   local    option I
people should not lose  sight of
the  fact.    A lot ol' good,  vigor
ous, edjeative campaigning will
be necessary to  convince  many;
that the people, and not merely
a handful of licence commission-
ers,  who are not responsible  to'
the people, should have  the say j
as to the sale or exclusion of
liquor  from  their communities, j
Dr. Spenser is conducting a cam-
paign on behalf of the Local Option   League,   but   Dr.   Spenser j
cannot reach the whole province,
much less do the through systematic work necessary to arouse the
required intelligent interest  in
the   work.    Every   local   option
league in the province should get!

That the Grand Trunk Pacific
J railway will not build through,
the   Fraser canyon   when  constructing its branch line south to
j Vancouver, but will strike south
j from Kamloops into the Nicola
valley and thence proceed to the
1 Coldwater river, where a junc-
i tion will be effected with the V.
V. & E. railway, which line will
be used to reach Vancouver, is
the opinion to-day expressed by
a railwayman of long experience
in the west.
"I base my conclusion in this
matter not merely on the well
known friendliness of the Grand
Trunk and Grand Trunk Pacific
railways with the controlling
forces of the Great Northern, of
which the V. V. & E. is a subsidiary corporation, but upon the
fact that the route from Kamloops south and through the Hope
mountains will be the shortest
possible to obtain," said this man
in discussing his opinions. "Of
course the fact that the Grand
Trunk Pacific and the Great
Northern have established relations for the joint use of terminals at Vancouver and Winnipeg
���and may do so with respect to
Seattle���shows that a traffic arrangement between the two,
giving the former running rights
into Vancouver over the line of
the latter from the Coldwater
river, is not by any means an

V. V. & E. from the boundary
country westward towards the
coast, declare they are not at all
surprised that the road has not
been rushed to completion by
pushing it through the Hope
mountains to the Fraser valley,
expressing the opinion that to
date there had been no demand
which calls for the building of
this costly section of the line.
Now, howover, they say there
would be adequate reason for
construction through the mountains as the country to be traversed west of Keremeos has been
cansiderably developed during
the past few years. A possible
traffic arrangement with the
Grand Trunk Pacific whereby it
would be given running rights
over the line would be, say railwaymen, a powerful incentive to
the completion of the V. V. & E.
at an earlier date than _ would
otherwise be the case.
That the Grand Trunk Pacific
branch for Vancouver will not
laave the main line anywhere in
the vicinity of Fort George is
also a foregone conclusion, say
railwaymen. They express the
opinion .that construction will
proceed in a direct line from the
Yellowhead pass to the North
Thompson river which will be
followed to Kamloops. It is
argued that Fort George is altogether too far north to be considered as a possible point of
junction of the Vancouver branch
with the main line.

"Cerluinly not. 'Jo on."

She thought it was right, nnd���that's

court nnd they're as good as convicted;
yon have recovered yonr mine, nnd
these men are disgraced. They will go
to lad"
"Yes. for six months, perbips," broke
in the other belly, "but what does tbat
amount to?   There novr was :i bolder

cruelly unjust.    They robbed n realm

how?   By a paltry line or n short Imprisonment, perhaps, by nn ephemeral
disgrace and  the loss of  their stolen
goods.    Contempt of court  is the accusation,  bnt you  might as well c n-
j . vlct   a   murderer   for   breach   of   de
peace.     We've   thrown   then;   off.   it's

I gness It's true that there isn't any
law of (tod or man north of tlfi.i-turee,
but  if  there  is justice  south  of that

"You   make   It  hard   for  me  lo  say
what  I  want to.    1 am almost sorry
we came, for I am uot cunning with

gravely.    "We looked nt it this way:

Are extensive growers nf all kinds of Fruit Trees, Shrubs. Roses, and Ornamental Trees, and
the members of the firm are all practical nurserymen of 2f> Vears experience, and have built up
the most successful anil extensive business of the kind in Canada.
The growing <>f the stock, as well as every other detail in connection wiUi the work, is
personally superintended by the individual members of the firm, and 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 give the names
of the largest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees are grown iu the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that of the Okanagan 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 grade 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.
