If our merchants and business
men were asked whether they
considered it worth $1.00 per
thousand to have their envelopes
printed, they would undoubtedly
answer in the affirmative. The
Press is prepared to do better
than that, and yet many of our
business men continue to send
out their bills and letters in plain
envelopes, or in what looks
rather worse, rubber stamped
envelopes. Did you ever consider that a neatly-printed envelope is a good advertisement,
i.hat a business firm is judged by
the class of stationery it uses ?
This holds true among your own
customers as well as among
strangers. People like to deal
with the prosperous merchant,
and the man who does not use
printed stationery does not appear prosperous. Keep your
name before the public by your
stationery as well as by your advertisement; you will find that it
is the cheapest in the long  run.

J. Fraser-Campbell last week
circulated a petition to the Government requesting that wharves
be built m Dog Lake and this
end of Okanagan Lake for the
purpose of .'ocommodating a boat
which he purposes to run from
Penticton to Okanagan Falls.
Such a boat would certainly be
mutually beneficial to both points.
The people of Penticton have
not yet come to realize the valuable asset they have in Okanagan and Dog Lake? Go out
boating one of those warm,
moonlight evenings and see for
yourself, or take your annual dip
while the weather is still warm.

in addition is a few acres close
by for a resort park. There is
such a place -a seven acre block
with beautiful trees. The municipality should, yes must, have
this. The esplanade is all right,
but it will never be a resort, as
the bathing ia not good there.
That will b'���> an excellent place

property is valuable, but we must

aquatic sports for the trip on the

The third regatta at Naramata
for 1909 was held on Thursday,
Aug. 26. The Maud Moore plied
between T enticton and Naramata; the Orillia brought a scow
load from Summerland; while
the Aberdeen brought many from
points up the lake. Later in the
afternoon the Okanagan brought
[ate comers from Summerland.
The Summerland band, at interval:, in the afternoon and
again in th'3 evening, played a
number of tnlivening selections,

The programs of the regatta
and souvenirs of 1909, at the low
price of 10c, sold fast, as well
they might. The booklets, by
the way, are models of their

A number of the events, on
account of the roughness of the
water, wee cancelled. The chief
of these were the war canoe
races, which it was decided to
hold at the Peachland regatta
billed for the following Thursday.

Grounds drew a large crowd of

London, Aug, 27. ���In the Commons yesterday, Mr. Asquith said
that it had been arranged at the
Imperial Defence Conference to
organise the military forces of
the crown so as to preserve
complete autonomy in each dominion, while allowing their assistance in the defence of the Empire by coming into one homogeneous imperial army. Replying
to members, Mr. Asquith said
the resolutions of the Imperial
Defence Conference would be
submitted to the various governments before they were made
binding. The South African delegate, he said, did not feel in a
position to submit the problems
for naval and military defence
or approval arrived at by the conference until the union of South
Africa had been accomplished.
Mr. Asquith explained that after
the main conference at the foreign office a military conference
took place at the war office. At
this conference it was recommended that complete control be
given each dominions, and that
these forces should be standardized, the formation of units, arrangement of transports, etc.,
being, as far as possible, assimilated to those recently worked
out by the British army. The
military conference entrusted a
sub-committee with the task of
working out the detailed application of these recommendations,
and a complete agreement was
Mr. Asquith further gave a detailed account of the proposed
remodelling of the Pacific fleet,
which both Australia and Canada
were anxious should be of appreciable strength. The remodeled
fleet would consist of three units,
the East Indies, the Australia
and the China squadrons. He
said that each unit was to be composed of a large armored cruiser
of the Indomitable type; three
cruisers of the Bristol type, six
destroyers of the River class, and
six submarines. It had been arranged that New Zealand and
Australia should present the empire with vessels of the Indomitable type, instead of the proffered Dreadnoughts, and that these
ships should form part of the
Pacific fleet. Subject to the approval of the Canadian Parliament, it was agreed that Canada
should make a start by building
cruisers of the Bristol class and
destroyers of the River class,
making use of both Pacific and
Atlantic ports for construction

The Game Act.
Last week we published a summary of the British Columbia
Game Act. This we did after receiving what we supposed to be
an up-to-date copy of the Act
from the Provincial Secretary.
A copy of certain orders-in-coun-
cil were also received, but these
dealt chiefly with further orders-
in-council in existance last year.
As we did not receive copies of
those orders-in-council, we were
unable to acquaint ourselves
with their purport, and as a con-
sequense, there were some errors
in last week's publication. We
may add that we spent about a
day searching through old papers with a view to presenting our
readers with precise information
as to wh< n to shoot and when
not to shoot certain animals and
birds. The provincial constable
informed us of certain errors, I
however, and these we correct:
in this issue.
If ever there was a jumbled up
condition  of  affairs as regards
the laws of any country,  that
condition exists as related to the
British  Cnumbia   Game   Laws.
We defy any   individual,  after
securing a copy of the Game Act
and studying it thoroughly,  to
ascertain therefrom   when  and
wh jre he may shoot certain game
animals   and   birds.     The   Act
says one thing, an order-in-coun-
cil another, while a second order-
in-council   modifies   or   nullifies
the first.    The districts covered
by the orders-in-council are so
indefinite as to make it  next to
impossible to define them.     For
instance an order-in-council prohibits the shooting of  mountain
shiep in the counties of Yale .and
Westminster.     Will  some legal
light inform us what is meant by
the term   "county"  in   British
Columbia and where the counties
namei are situated ?   Are  the
terms Yale District and  County
of Yale synonymous?   Granted
that they are, how is a man to
tell when he has passed from a
county where shooting of game
is prohibited to one where it is
permitted   when   he   is   in   the
heart of the mountains ?   Last
year there was an order-in-council prohibiting the shooting of!
prairie chicken until 1909.    This
year we are told there is another, j
although we have not seen it, '
extending  the   prohibition   fori
another  year.     Last   year   an
order-in-council   prohibited   the
l shooting of  willow grouse and
blue  grouse   in   the   Okanagan
I electoral district.   This year an j
order-in-council annuls that and
permits  the   killing  of   grouse
from Oct. 15 to Dec. 81.
We were about to say that it
was necessary for a hunter to
be a lawyer, or to get the advice
of a lawyer, before he ventured
to hunt in this province. Had
we said that we would have
fallen far short of the mark. He
should not only be a lawyer but a
politician and geographer as well.
He should know the exact boundaries of all the counties and electoral districts irrespective of
what portion of the mountain
wilderness he may find himself
in. He should be acquainted
with every little stream and be
able to trace imaginary lines over
water, mountain or forest with

a precision that would baffle a
civil engineer. These should be
qualifications enough for any
hunter, but we find by the following order-in-council that he
should add to his already numerous accomplishments a knowledge of astronomy:
"That the hunting, killing or
taking of moose south of the
52nd parallel of latitude in. the
Province, excepting in the Columbia Electoral District, shall be
prohibited until the 31st day of
August, 1914." We venture
there are not five men in the
provincial legislature capable of
locating- the 52nd parallel, much
less the exact boundaries of their
own electoral districts.
This, however, is not the
worst feature of the case. These
orders-in-council are made public only through the medium of
the B. C. Gazette, and such
newspapers as puplish them
without remuneration. The Gazette is not read by one person in a
thousand, so the chances of the
public knowing anything about
the orders-in-council are very
small. Laws are made to be
obeyed and should be made so
that they could be understood by
any person able to read. If they
are not understood, they lose
their purpose altogether.
The Act should be thoroughly
re/ised by the legislature. The
chief cause ot the present jumble
lies in the power that is in the
hands of the Lieutenant-Gover-
nor-in-Council to order changes
in the game regulations without
consulting the legislature. The
regulations should be changed as
seldom as possible, and, if it is
absolutely necessary to have different regulations for different
localities, the localities should be
defined in such a manner as to
be readily grasped by the most
humble citizen. AH information
should be embraced in the body
of the Act, and not in orders-in-
council. A person who had in
his possession a copy of the Game
Act would then be armed with
all the information he required
on the subject.
It would be difficult, probably
unjust, for a magistrate to convict a person for violating the
game laws as they stand at

Owing to the rough sea on the
Lake on Thursday August 26th,
it was found impracticable to carry out the programme of water
sports prepared for the Regatta
at Naramata.
A large number of people paid
the addmission fee to the grand
stand, but since the sports did
not come off as advertised the
Naramata Amateur Athletic and
Aquatic Association feel that
those who thus paid did not get
full value for their money, and
the Association are, therefore,
prepared to refund the admission
fee to those who paid.
As there is no record of purchasers of seats, application made
in writing by those who paid will
be honered.

A DRY snow had fallen stp.idlly
throughout the still nicht. so
that when a cold, upper wiutt
. cleared the sky gloriously in
the morning the Incongruous Indiana
town Kbone iu a white harmony���roof,
ledge aud earth as evenly covered as
by moonlight There was no thaw.
Only where- the hue of factories followed the big bend of the frozen river,
tbelr distant chimneys like exclamation points on a blank page, was tliere
a tirst threat against the supreme
whltenef-'s. The wind passed quickly
and on high, the shouting of the school
children had ceased at 9 o'clock with
pitiful suddenness uo sleigli bells
laughed out on the air. and the inuf-
fliug of the thoroughfares wrought au
unaccustomed peace like that of Sunday. This was the phenomenon which
afforded tbe opening of the morning
debate of the sages iu the wide win
down of tbe National House.
Only such unfortunates as have so
far failed to visit Canaan do uot know-
that the Natioual House is ou tbe
Main street side of the Courthouse
square and has the advantage of being
within two minutes' walk of tbe railroad statiou, which is iu plain sight of
the wiudows, an inestimable beuetit to
tbe couversatiou of tbe aged meu who
occupied these wiudows on this white
n ouiuig eveu as they were wout in
summer to bold against all comers the
cane seated chairs on the pavement
Mall'time, had come to mean that
bright hour when they all got their
feet ou the brass rod which protected
tbe sills of the two big wiudows, with
tho steam radiators sizzling like kettles
against tbe side wall. Mr. Jonas Tabor,
who had sold bis hardware business
magnificently (uot magnificently for
hit).nephew, the purchaser) some ten
years before, was usually, In spite of
tbe fact that he remained a bachelor at
seventy-nine, the last to settle down
with the others, though often the first
to reach the hotel, which be always entered by a side door, becaii.se he did
not believe in the treating system. And
it was Mr. Eskew Arp, only seventy-five,
but already a thoroughly capable cynic,-who almost invariably "opened tbe
arguineut," and it was he who discovered tbe sinister intention behind tho
weather of this particular morning.

Peter Bradbury, whose granddaughter

The "argument" grew heated. Hall
a dozen tidy quarrels arose. All tlie

Tabar, who stole quietly away. The
aged men were enjoying themselves
thoroughly, especially those who qualified. Naturally the frail bark of the
topic which had been launched was
whirled about by too many side cur
rents to remain long in sight and soon
became derelict, while the intellectual
dolphins dove aud tumbled in the
depths. At the end of twenty ininute.-
Mr. Arp emerged upon the surface, and
in bis mouth was this:
"Tell me. why ain't the church���why
aiu't the church and the rest of the
believers in a future life looklu' for
immortality at the other end of life
too? If we're immortal we always
have been. Then why don't they evei
speculate on what we were before we
were horn? It's because they're too
blame selfish: don't care a flapdoodle
about what was. All they waut is to go
ou llvln' forever."
Mr. Arp's voice had risen to an acrid
triumphancy. when it suddenly falter
ed. relapsed t:> a murmur and theu to n
stricken silence as a tail, fat man of
overpowering aspect threw open the
outer door uear by and crossed the
lobby to the clerk's desk. An awe felt
upon the sages with this advent. They
were unshed and after a movement in
their chairs, with n strange effect ol
huddling, sat disconcerted aud atteu
tlve. like schoolboys at the entrance ot
ihe master.
The personate had a big, fat, pink
lace and a heavily undershot jaw.
what whitish beard he wore following
his double chin somewhat after the
manner displayed iu the portraits ol
Henry VIII. His eyes, very bright
under puffed upper lids, were intolerant and insultingly penetrating despite
their small size. Their irritability held
a kind of hotuess. uud yet the person
age exuded frost, not of the weather,
all about him. Vou could uot Imagine
man gr angel daring to greet this being genially-sooner throw u kiss to
Mount Piiatus!
"Mr. Brown," he suld. with ponder
ous hostility, In a bull bass to the
clerk���the kind of voice which would
have made an express train leave the
(rack and go round the other way-
'do-you hear me?"
"Oh, yes, judge!" the clerk replied
swiftly In tones as unlike those which
he used for strunge transients as a
collector's voice in his ladylove's em-

personage threateningly.
"Yes. judge." Mr. Brown essayed

"Has your emp'oyor, the manager
of this hotel, seen that snow'.'" pursued
the personage, with a gesture of unspeakable solemn menace.
"Yes, sir.   I think so.   Yes. sir."
"Do you think he fully understands
that I am the proprietor of this building?"
"Certain, jndrre. cer"���
"Yon will inform him that I do not

"Yes, judge. I do so." answered the
clerk, hoarse with respect. 'I'll see to
it this minute. Judge I'ike."
"You had belter." The personage
turned himself about and began a grim
progress toward tlie door by which he
had entered, his eyes fixing themselves
angrily upon the conclave at the windows.
He nodded to the only man of substance among them, Jonas Tabor, and
shut   the  door  behind   him   with   ma
jestic  insult.     He  was  Canaan's  mil
Naturally Jonas Tabor was the first
to speak. "Judge Pike's l>okin' mighty
well." he said admiringly.
"Yes. he is." ventured Squire Bucks
lew. with deference: "mighty well."
"There's a parly at the judge's to
night." said Mr. Bradbury -kind of a
ball Mamie Pike's givln' lor the young
folks     Quite a (loin's. I hear."
"That's another thing that's ruining
Canaan." Mr. Arp declared morosely-
"these entertainments they have now
adays. Spend all the money out of
town-band from Indianapolis, chicken
salad and darky waiters from Chicago!"
A decrepit hick or two. a couple of
old fashioned surreys and a few "cut-
tinders" drove by from the 10:46 train,
hearing the newly arrived and their
valises, the hotel omnibus depositing
several commercial travelers at the
door. A solitary lignre came from the
station ou foot, and when it appeared
within fair range of the window. Uncle
Joe Davey, who had but hovered on
tbe flanks of the combat, first removed
his spectacles und wiped them, as
though distrusting the vision they offered him, then, replacing them, scanned anew the approaching figure aud
uttered a smothered cry.

years at $50.00 per foot. Invest your dollars at home, they will make more for you here than

Nurserymen,   -   of Ontario
Are extensive growers of all kinds of Fruit Trees, Shrubs. Roses, and Ornamental Trees, and
the members of the firm are all practical nurserymen of 26 years 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, ia
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 arid can give the names
of the largest 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 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.
