REAT FRUIT GROWER
VISITS PRINCE RUPERT
i. Joseph Tweddle is Impressed With Fruit Growing
Possibilities of Kitsumkalum���Gives Some Practical Hints on How to Treat Soil for Best Results
May Establish Great Nurseries Up the River.
\ll over Canada, wherever fruit
wers assemble,  the  name  of
eph  Tweddle is Well known.
is  one of   the   most   famous
the  authorities on  scientific
ii culture in tite Dominion.   He
kcs no secret of the fact that
fortune  has   been   made  by
ciiiion  to cultures and bacilli,
t tubes, chemical mixtures and
!��� microscope.    He has been a
lit grower for thirty-five years.
���r the first twenty-five he failed
make more thun a living at it.
���n years ago hc started  again
approaching the subject from
| scientific sid'.     The fact that
iihas made a big fortune by his
Bards   at   Stoney   Creek,   On-
.rio, and (irand  Rapids, B. C,
ve his words weight.
Visits Kitsumkalum
j.ast year, Mr. Tweddle bought
ig tract of land at Kitsiiinkaluni
li a view of starting another of
big orchards there. This year
is visiting the property. A
lc ago he "mushed it," up
m Mile 42. Yesterday he ar-
i'd back in town, and to the
tiniist gave an exclusive in-
view giving his opinion on the
I nn.l proepw ts ai Kitsiinikaliini.
From such an authority as Mr.
Tweddle the opinions expressed
have more than ordinary interest.
All Small Fruits
"The soil at Kitsumkalum will
grow all small fruits. There is
no question they will do well,"
said Mr, Tweddle. "But," he
added, "it will be necessary for
tlie growers to treat the soil
properly. Otherwise, as in the
case of the first growers at Nelson
and other places, they will not
do well with llieir land. It will be
necessary for them to treat the
land to bring it into proper condition to get the best results. If
this is done it will be as good as
any land in the Province for the
fruit grower.
A Timely Warning
"Some men," said Mr. Tweddle
with a smile, "seem to think that
they can grow fruit by merely
planting the trees and then casting
the burden on tlie Lord. But
they never get good returns that
way. To get good crops they must
see that the soil is right. The
best of land will always retpiire
treatment at the start.

ONG TRIP ON SNOW SHOES
PROSPECTING FOR COAL
Campbell Johnstone Well Known Mining Engineer
Returned Last Night After 350 Miles of Mushing
���Found Some Coal���Big Railroad Developments.
After an eight weeks' trip pros-
ting  for coal  in  the country
I from   Bella   Coola,   half  way
ween here anil Vancouver und
slung during thai time on snow
tes   a   distance  of   350   miles,
C.    Campbell   Johnstone,    a
ning engineer of Vancovver, but
Highland Scotchman first, every
di  of  him,   mushed  into  the
T. 1'. Inn last night garbed in
long   black   slicker   coat,   top
"its and a  real Tani o'Shanter
l.u with a big bright red toorie
on lop.
Six feet four in his socks, with
��� i pair of shoulders that would
touch lhe sides of any ordinary
doorway and a hand as hard as
-i ship's biscuit and a heart as
soil as a boy's.
Mr. Campbell Johnstone left
a reminder with the Optimist man
about ilu- grip of his hand and the
size and softness of his heart.
Eight weeks on snow shoes with
the Hi ennometer llirting round
the zero mark and only two
nights' sleep under a tent, the
rest out in tlie open in company
with his trusty mini James Scott,
an old miner with an experience
'if twenty years in the Yukon
behind him.
Mr. Johnstone had little luck
H his tour. He found some
ignite coal but nothing lo speak
aboul. This summer he said
work will commence on the con-
si ruction of the railroad from
Bella Coola to Peace tyivcr coun-
I'y. This road is to be built by
French capitalists and will be thc
best means of getting to Prince
Rupert and Vancouver from that
country with a great future ahead
��f it. Bella Coola will be lhe
terminal thai that place has prospects of being something soon.
The road will bc called Hudson

and all is ready for construction
when lhe weather breaks.
In June Mr. Jonhstone will
begin to get things in working
order for building the railroad
along the Skeena and Naas rivers.
He is chief engineer for the project.
To get back to Vancouver from
Bella Coola Mr. Joh.istone had
to take the S. S. Venture bound
for here. He left her at Metlakatla last night and came here
on a launch with all his traps and
but one complaint which was, "I'm
as hungry as a pack horse after a
hard day's work.
During the trip one of the
mares on the pack traiii had a coll.
Mr. Johnstone had three assistants
with him and whc.i the Optimist
ma i ventured: "Any sickness?"
the answer was "Young man, do
I look like a sick man? 1 don't
know what it means." The speaker stroked his eight weeks' chin
growth which greatly amused his
old friend, Mr. ('.. H. Collins whom
he met in the hotel rotunda.
Owing to the severe weather in
tlie interior many of the fur-bearing animals have been frozen to
death, particularly the mtiskrals
on account of having iheir air
holes in the snow frozen over.
Mr. Johnstone left for Vancouver this morning on the S. S. Prince
Rupert.

investigation of tlie little boy
Thomas Koran who was run over
and killed by a freight train on
the B. C. Electric Lin* yesterday,
the jury brought in a verdict that

No blame, however, was attached to ihe motorman, who
had evidently done all he could to
save the little boy though without
avail.

TALK ABOUT TOWN
Caught a Wolf
Prowling up the edge of tlie
Skeena River last week were four
grey timber wolves. Carl Whit-
more, an old trapper, saw them
and managed to get one by scttieg
a trail. It was a line big fellow
and ils skin is now hanging up in
Stewart & Mobley's warehouse
and any person can have it for SO.
GREAT RUSH OF SETTLERS
TO PEACE RIVER COUNTRY
Most of the Settlement Goes to Alberta Because B.C. Territory Is
In Hands of Land Grabbers���One Speculator Has
Staked 260 Square Miles of Land
If you haven't seen Kelly don't
bother about him. Reilly can do
vour baking.
(Special to the Optimist)
Vancouver, April 21.- Just returned from the Peace River country and the Lesser Slave Lake
district, C, S. Arnold, barrister
here, reports that there is a great
rush of settlers on now to the
Grand Prairie Country via Edmonton and Athabasca Landing.
Most are Americans
The bulk of the newcomers are
Americans, and they are very well
equipped wilh all necessities, and
are also taking in many line stock
horses.   Settlement is apparently
taking place more rapidly Ofl the
Alberta side than on  lhe British
Columbia side.  This is attributed
chiefly to the fact lhat such large
areas  of. British   Columbia  land
have been staked by speculators.
One man has slaked no fewer than
2110 square miles.
To Cope with Immigration
The flood of Immigration  to
this attractive country is already
ahead of means of transportation
for all who waul lo come. Three
railways are being hurried on into
lhe best districts, and settlers
are following lhe sleel almost fool
by fool, with iheir properly.
Additional steamers are being
put on lhe rivers, and every possible means of conveyance is in
use. By next year communication will be very much easier.
The present difficulties do not
iu the least deter settlers.
Real Estate Soars Up
There is a tremendous increase
in the values of real estate in the
rising centres at the main gateways into the settlers' coii.itry.
While main are going in to take
up land for farming, there are
always numbers who tlrop oil at
the cities, and these are mostly
ready and able to invest substantially. As a result, doubli
corners at Athabasca l.aiuli.ig are'
now    valued    at    110,000,   while
property oi Jaspar avenue at Edmonton is going at $1800 lo 12200
per front fool.
The weather in the whole district continues wintry. Thermometer registered IS to 20 below dur-
LITTLE WHALER "BROWN"
HAS TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE
During Heavy Gale Off Queen Charlotte Islands the
Vessel's Boiler Blew Up Under the Heavy Pressure
Amid Scalding Steam Crew Made Temporary Repairs and Saved the Craft from Shipwreck.
(Special to the Optimist)
Victoria, April 21-After a terrible experience oil lhe wesl coast
of the Queen Charlotta Islands
the little steam whaler Brown
limped into this port today. Her
captain and crew tell a thrilling
story of peril, ln the gale which
has recently raged oil the coast
the little vessel was Hung about
in heavy seas until the coal stored
on deck for her trip norlh shifted.
and only splendid management
saved her from a fate like that of
ihe Iroquois.
Burst in Engine Room
Keeping up a tremendous steam
pressure to get every ounce out
of the engines, the tiny steamer
was driven ahead against wind
aud sea. Jusi at the critical
moment another most serious mis-
hatp occurred. The cylinder head
blew off under the steam pressure,
and the engines were disabled.
Still struggling, and unbeaten the
crew   fought   to" keep her  afloat.
but she drilled helplessly now
before the gale,and drove nearer
and nearer to the rocky shore.
In such deep water it was useless
to attempt to anchor but all lhe
cable available was joined up and
the anchor let go. Still the boat
drifted, the crew endeavoring to
get the coal shifted back, the
engineers working determinedly in
the engine room filled with scalding
steam, trying to make repairs.
When the whaler was less than a
mile from shore, by good fortune,
tlie anchor held. Fifty fathoms
of cable were out. Oul of wood
tlie carpenter made a cylinder
head, and this wiih a temporary
backing devised by lhe engineer
oul of a metal door, made it possible for the boat to make steam
again. Very slowly she limped
into Victoria, her captain and
crew jubilant at their BUCCesa in
saving lhe ship.
The Brown was bound for Kyu-
quot and Naden Harbor when she
met with her terrible experience.
ICE PACK TEN MILES LONG

EVERY ONE TURN CUT TONIGHT
Every good citizen, irrespective ol party, should make a
point ol turning out to die public mectinc in the Empress Theatre
tonight io hear Mr. Duncan Ross speak on the question of how reciprocity will affect Prince Rupert.
Outside of the question ol the Grand Trunk Pacific Assessment,
there is no question upon which so much ol our future welfare or ill-
fare depends upon rightlj settling, li is thedut) of the conscientious
citizen to useevery opportunity of finding out what die reciprocity
question really is, so that when the time comes he may deal intelligently
one way or the other with it.
And the iii.in or woman who from motives of public responsibility
turns mn rn hear Mr. Ross's address will be more than well rewarded.
As an orator he ranks high among public men ; few speakers approach
him as an exponent of economic principles. Many years ol newspaper
training have given him thc art of condensing his thought without
sacrificing lucidity while his extensive experience both in and oul ol
Parliament have given the personal touch to his voluminous knowledge
of the history of political events in Canada. He is a man ol v. I om
Uriiish Columbia may well be proud.
Every timid citizen irrespective of party, should make a point
of hearing Mr. Ross in thc Empress Theatre tonight,
HOW ABOUT THE PUBLIC WHARF?
Almost two years ago ,i start was made to build a government
wharf at Prince Rupert. Ii> sin- was fixed ol the fool ol what is i ov
McBride street, and at the sale the McBride street lots brought tlie
highest prices of all, owing to tlie representation that they were
nearest to tlie Government wharf "whieh is just building.'
Much water has flowed round Kaien Island since then, but little
work seems to hate been dole Inwards building the wharf. Some
false work has been put up, but not a single permanent concrete pile
has yet been driven. Many citi/.ens in private express thc opii ion
that the work at the wharf is being deliberately delayed,
Last \ ivember when Premier McBride visited the city renewed
assurances were given that thc work den overdue would be rushed
to completion, but apparentlj no pressure has been brought on thc
contractors.
With the growth of the shipping at thc port the need of more
wharfage than the Grand Trunk wharf affords is obvious, to say nothing
of the hope entertained 1>> the city merchants that the completion
ot the government wharl will mean a reduction in the present wharfage
charge of 50 rents a ton.
The publie have been very forbearing in the matter so far. Hut
their patience i- becoming exhausted,

SMOKES MAY MEET
New York, April'.'(). Sam Langford, the colored heavyweight, who
is just hack from a three months'
trip abroad, before leaving for
Nova Scotia told a party of admirers here of his experiences
in Europe and hi^ aspirations for
a championship contest with Jack
Johnson.
"1 really heal MiA'ey in Paris
two weeks ago, Ii wasn't a fake,
although it may have looked queer,
I tried to knoch him out but he
|hung on and clinched for the last|
eight or ten rounds so that 1
couldn't hind mi him.
"Will 1 fight Johnson? Sure'
1 will.   He cap have a mill wKh|
me in London or Paris, but 1
don'i believe he warts to I'irKi
me. I'd just like to get into the
ring with him for fifteen or ten
rounds. That would be time
enough for me to prove that 1
could whip him."

A MODEL TOWN
Each Tank Holds 72,000 Gtl
Ions���Cheaper, Cleaner. Better in Every Way Than Coal.
Along several narrow passages
the Optimist man groped his way,
then down several clean, but slippery ladders until he was in the
engine room of the S. S. Princess
May- the holy of holies of every
ship. Entrance had lieen achieved
hy permission of ihe local agent
of the C. I'. R. The object of
the visit was L> see oil burners
with whieh tlie Princess May is
now equipped.
Chief Engineer Renton and Second Engineer Sullivan acted as
guides and informants. There's
been a good many inquiries made
around the city about the oil
burners on the Princess May.
Whai the Opiimist ma learned
ibout theni is given.
Advantages of Oil
There are a number of advantages to the new system over coal.
It is cheaper; the first consideration. It takes just half lhc
staff to run oil burners as it does
lo run coal burners. Then oil
is cleaner, and does nol belch
out thick opaque clouds of smoke
like burning coal. Better lime
can be made with oil and it i>
sifer. With coal it used lo lake
three boilers of the Princess May
all their lime to make enough
Steam to speed 18 knots an hour.
With oil this is an easy task.
When only two oil boilers are
burning 11! knols can be made.
Flash Point 190
The oil comes from California
in oil boats and is pumped into
tanks in Vancouver, where the
boats are loaded. The oil is a
low grade kind and has to be
healed to Pit) degrees before it
will Hash.
In the Princess May it is stored
in three tanks, placed amidships.
These   tanks   measure   11x16x28
feet and each holds 72,000 gallons.
That Flame a Reminder
From  the tanks il runs into a
heater in the engine room and is
joys of country life combined, for there healed to 150 degrees.   From
the houses arc lo be built with all i the heater it runs into an atomizer

at its ethereal loveliness. People

Feed  the Soil
"Tin11-unl at Kitsumkalum after
being burnt over will require feeding with nitrogen, To do this
with commercial nitrogen would
cost -u tlie rate of 25 cents a pound.
Th,' best and cheapest way would
In- 10 plain BOme of the legumes
clovers, pea.--, or vetcnes���and plough these in- Professor Craig
when at l In.iw a demonstrated thai
from planting and ploughing in
vetches he added as high as 260
pounds ni nitrogen to an acre ol
ground. This is ihe licst method
ol enriching the soil with nitrogen,
am! once done the soil will keep
in condition for all time after, wilh
proper treatment of crops."
Nature of Soil
Mr. Tweddle described the soil
at Kitsumkalum as being composed of a top layer of from one
io two feet of volcanic ash, with
one to four feet of sand beneath,
and below that again deposits
of gravel. Mr. Tweddle has USD
acres of  burned over lands  upon
wnich he hopes io plant a nursery
under the charge of his son-in-law.
Help  is  Needed
"There is one great problem,
ihat of suitable help in the berry
season," he said. "The strawberries at Kitsumkalum grow very
large and plentiful, but they require a lot of work to pick them.
11 is expensive to engage ordinal*)
labor ai up-river prices, and I
am trying to get the Indians to
let their women go up there in I
the berry season and pick. The
Indian women are very expert
at the work. In the East I have
Indian women who have picked
800 baskets a day. If ibis is
done, and arrangements made to
ship the berries at the right temperature lo Vancouver, there would
be a big profit, for the berries
would come in when southern
berries would be unobtainable.
They would have the market to
themselves.
Big Profits Certain
"('Merries, apples, pears, and
plums have been grown up there
by Mr. Smith, and large quantities
of raspberries and strawberries
by Mr. Weeks. All small fruits
will do well, and the orchards
after being put in shape and
planted should bring big profits,"
said Mr. Tweddle.
As an instance of the rapid ris ���
in fruit lands he instanced his
own fruit farm al Grand Rapids.
Five yean ago he was one of three
men who put !?.">,0(H) into it as a
start. Now Mr. Tweddle's half
inlcrcst in it is valued al *".'>.(Hill.
