Copper Street, Greenwood, B. C.  - Tbe following is a copy of a cablegram from Hon.  Mr. Fielding to Lord Strathcona, the High Commissioner  for Canada, London:  "It is evident that some British journalists and public-men have received entirely erroneous impressions concerning the reciprocity agreement. Reciprocity trade relations with the United States has been the policy of all  parties in Canada for generations, Many efforts have been  made to secure a treaty, but without success. Sir John  Macdonald's National Policy tariff, 1879, contains a standing offer of reciprocity with the States, covering a large  portion of the products included in the present arrange"  ment. The unwillingness of the Americans to make any  reasonable arrangement led to much disappointment in  Canada. Sir Wilfrid Laurier several years ago gave expression to this, and said Canada would not again take the  initiative in negotiations. Now that the Americans have  entirely changed their attitude, and have approached  Canada with fair offers, our government takes the position  that we should meet them fairly, and that in making such  an arrangement as is now proposed we. are realizing the  desires of our people for half a century, and also that in I  promoting friendly relations with the neighboring republic  we are doing the tiest 'possible service to the empire.  "Canada is seeking markets everywhere for her surplus products, subsidizing steamship lines and sending out  commercial agents. Would it not be ridiculous in the pursuit of such a policy to refuse to avail herself of the markets of the great nation lying alongside? The expressed  fear that it will seriously affect imports from Great Britain is groundless; the greater part of the agreement deals  with natural products, which Great Britain does not send  us. The range of manufactures affected is comparatively  small, and in most cases the reductions are small. It appears to be assumed in some quarters that the tariff rates  agreed upon are a discrimination in favor of the United  States and against Great Britain. There is no foundation  for this. In every case Great Britain will still have the  same rate, or a lower one. Canada's right to deal with  the British preference as she pleases remains untouched  by the agreement, The adoption of the agreement will  lead to some further revision of the Canadian tariff, in  which the Canadian Parliament will be entirely free to fix  the British preferential tariff at any rates that may be  deemed proper. You are free to use this in any way you  think best."  FREE ADMISSION RULES REVISED  home in Phoenix, for which place  they left at 4 o'clock on Wednesday morning. Mr. Sawrey is an  electricau and is known to be a  very estimable young man, while  Miss Hart is well known here a*  a very charming young lady.  The Times extends congratulations.

In the senate at Ottawa Sir Richard Cartwright has  introduced a bill to amend the Chinese immigration act.  It gives the government power to make regulations further  defining merchants, students and others entitled to free  admission to Canad.  Merchants, tourists and others bearing certificates of  identity will hereafter have to establish their status to the  satisfaction of the controller at the port of entry. In all  cases of those applying with certificates entitling them to  free entry, the burden of proof as to identity is placed  upon the Chinese.  There are some additions to the free list. Members  of the diplomatic corps and council will be allowed to bring  in their suites and servants without tax, Chinese born in  Canada will be allowed to bring in their wives and minor  children free. If over 21 years of age, the son of a Chinese  merchant who has been doing business in Canada, and has  died, will be allowed free entry for the purprse of carrying on the business previously, carried on by his father.  Chinese born in Canada may return free at any age.  Heretofore this privilege was granted only to minors.

Now,  Sid's ailment is not caused from  an over-indulgence in hard labor,  for everyone who knows Sid will  readily admit that he is long on  executive ability and superim-  tending the other tellow.  The trouble with Mr. Oliver's  back was caused by a coyote.  Sid being the game warden of  tbis neck'o-the-woods thought he  had a perfect right to take a long  distance shot at the mongrel,  which he proceeded to do, wounding the animal which made a  speedy get-a-way to some rocks  up Boundary creek. Not to be  out-done by a coyote, the Game  Warden followed, and in his efforts to rid the country of the  pest���and incidentally to collect  the bounty���he fell from a cliff,  wrenching his back. Mr. Oliyer,  however, will soon be on the job  again with his spinal column in  perfect shape to meet all comers  in his line ot business.  Another Boxer Rising.

LABOR NOTES.  BATTLES ICY TRAILS TO  SAVE HIS SISTER'S LIFE  Mail advices from Yukon tell of a terrible race for  life to fetch a doctor. It was Dick Armstrong, a well  known northern "mucker," who traveled for four days  with the temperature between 60 and 70 degrees below  zero to get a doctor for his sister, who was believed to be  dying. He picked up relief dog trains wherever he could.  When he arrived at Dawson his face was frozen in spots  as white as marble and one of his kness had taken on the  same stiff chill. Two dogs died during the journey. His  sister recovered before his return. During the four days  Armstrong covered 230 miles, mostly over broken trails.  Wedding Bells  The marriage of Mr. Herb Sawrey of Phoenix to Miss Florence  Minnie Hart, eldest daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. W. Hart of this  city, took place at the residence  of the bride's parents on Tuesday  evening at 8 o'clock. The bride  was attended by her sister, Miss  Sissie Hart, who acted as bridesmaid, and Walter Williams was  best man to the groom. The ceremony was performed by the Rev.  Calvert of Crand Forks, who amid  a profusion of ferns and flowers,  that formed a bower overhead,  pronounced the happy couple man  and wife.  The bride was attired in a beautiful cream silk dress aud wore  upon her head a wreath of cream  roses to match, while the groom  was dressed in the usual conven.  tional frock suit of black.  Supper was served to the guests  present and the couple were the  recipients of a number of  beaufci-  Kettle Valley Railway.  The Kettle Valley Railway Co.  has arranged for the purchase of  some 50 acres of meadow land in  the southwest  portion   of   Penticton   and   near the Okanagan  river divisional yard and station.  It is   understood   there   will  be  built there a  spur line constructed  from   the yards  to the  lake  where the new yards will be built  a distance of about a mile.    Tbe  site secured   by the   railway   for  its yards  is about the   best  that  could be procured   in Pentincton.  With a   minimum of   labor   thi-  land  acquired   can   be   made as  level as a billiard table.  The president of the Kettle*  Valley railroad has under construction a large residence in  Peutictou aud expects to spend  a considerable part of his linn-  there.

The haste with which Canadian railways follow the example  of the United States companies  in evolving a new scale of charges for berths in sleeping cars is  conclusive proof of the community of interests which exists between these combinations of capital on both sides of the line.  The Railway Commission hastened also to approve of the new  schedule, probably because the  public as a whole was not deeply  interested. Only a small proportion of the population cares about  the prices of sleeping accommodations on a train. But everyone is affected by the freight  tolls. The cost of living for the  whole population is intimately  associated with thc subject of  freight charges. The Railway  Commission has been giving learned consideration to tbe chaff and  allowing the kernels to be neglected.  the grain growers. There is no.  place for butter, or milk or eggs,  or poultry, in the schemes of the  Manitoba soil destroyers.  Selling liquor without a license  is.a crime in British Columbia,  and yet it is practiced in Greenwood just across tbe bridge of  sighs.    The civilized world stands  aghast at the terrible conditions  of plague and ffnitine in Man-  churi. Hut it is not time for  empty sympathy; it is a lime for  action. It is tho plain duty of  every country of tbe. globe to cooperate in sending relief to the  unfortunate Chinese.  love. As memory scads' the past,  above and beyond all tbe transitory pleasures of -life there leap  forward those supreme hours  when you have been enabled to  do unnoticed kindnesses to those  around about you. things too  trilling to speak about, but which  you feel have entered into your  eternal Hie.  IMMIGRATION.  The outlook lor immigration  to Canada from Great Britain  was never more promising. In-  quirieM at the ufhee of the superintendent of immigration at Ottawa from London and all parts  of the British possessions are  much greater than ever before  at this season of the year. Booking agents also report that inquiries at their offices are exceedingly heavy. In some cases steerage accommodations on steamers  are sold out until May. Scotland  cabin bookings are also heavy.  There seems to be a great interest among all classes in everything pertaining to Canada.  Hundreds of lectures have been  delivered by officers of the immigration department and the halls  have always been filled to capacity. There seems to be more  interest in Canada across tbe  water than ever before.  There is probably loss known  violations of the law in Greenwood than any other town in the  country. But there seems to be  a class of lawbreakers here whose  violations go unnoticed. Where  does the fault lie that thev go  unpunished.  ln 1910 there were 57 lynchiugs  in the United States as compared  with 190 in 1894 and all but five  of the total lor last year were  negroes. Apparently the method  of mob violence is becoming a  less popular method of enforcing  so-called justice and it is not going out of   fashion   any too soon.  It is now asserted that wrecker  Travers, of Farmers' Bank notoriety, was insane. It may not  be true, but it is not likely that-  it will make much difference.  Kingston peuitentiary is a good  place for him in any event. The  pity is op to the present he is the  only one among the group of get-  rich-quicksters who has come in  for punishment.  HARD TO SATISFY.  There are indications that the  people of Canada are being nauseated by the conBtant roars of protest from farmers' organizations.  When it is remembered that agricultural classes as a whole have  been the beneficiaries of more  coddling and pampering and  babying and general paternal attention than all the rest of the  population combined, it might be  reasonable to suppose that they  would give as well as take. But  they are determined to grab all  the time. Can they not be induced to believe that other elements in the community have  some license to live and do business?         The hotel keeper is entitled to  everv protection that his license  gives him. He pays a large sum  yearly for the privilege of quenching the thirsts of the multitude,  and he should be surrounded by  such protection that will keep  others from encroaching upon  his right who pay nothing for  the privilege ot doing so.  A farm near Pincher Creek,  Alberta, cultivates a 1000 acres  of land, sowing it to wheat. The  herd of milch cows on the estate  consists of one animal, and she  furnishes so little milk that tbe  family buys its butter at the  grocery store in town. That is  modern farming with a vengence,  but it meets with the approval of  Lent 1911.  My Dear Friends:  On March 1st we shall have a  distinct call from God to set apart  six weeks for extra devotions and  true turning to Him. I wonder  whether we shall hear and heed  the call, or whether we shall  drift on in our life as ii no call  had ,come. Anyway the call is  to us, and we cannot be as though  the call had not been given.  Year by year the church on God's  behalf invites you to our Lent,  and happy those who turn it into  proper use. The season grows  more solemn as it progresses, and  ends with tbe commemoration of  Christ crucified, and we seem to  hear Him say, "Is it nothing to  you all ye that pass by?"  There will be  two short extra  services during  the  weeks���one  on Tuesdays at  the hall, Wood's  block, at 5 p. m. and the other at  St. Jude's church  on  Thursdays  at 8 p.  m.    But  I would  like to  give you all a  special  invitation  to our evensong  at  St. Jude's on  Sn adays at 7:50 p. m , beginning  March  Sth,   when   I propose   to  give a special   course of sermons  on the Service of  the Holy Communion���the  principal service of  our church���illustrated with  pictures.    These   pictures   are   not  magic lantern pictures, but painted   especially for   this  course in  Sepia, explanatory of  the different parts of our service.    It is  hoped that  none   of   these   addresses will be   missed   for  two  reasons. First, because the thread  of them would be  broken and interest   marred,   and second,   because it is  an opportunity of   a  life time, for I don't suppose they  will ever be   repeated in   Greenwood.  M. F. Hilton, Vicar.  Burrell on Reciprocity  This is how Martin BurrcT,  M. P., regards tho reciprocity  bargain:  "Thc abolition of tbe duties on  fruit couic-s as unexpected, disastrous and unjustifiable blow to  tbe fruit industry of Uritish Columbia in particular, and indeed  to Ontario as well. Iu British  Columbia their lias been tremendous investment in fruit lands.  The whole industry is in the construction stage aud is being developed under expensive and somewhat difficult conditions. Our  great natural market on tbe Canadian prairies is being rapidly exploited by Washington and Oregon in spite ot the existing tariff. The whipping out of the  tariff means fiercer competition  in the Canadian market with absolutely no equivalent, as the  great fruit states south of the  line supply every market within  their own borders aud are  heavy exporters. The government is absolutely unjustified by  facts in proposing the free entry  of United States fruits."  Interest in the Farmer.  Grocers cannot expect the  farmers to deal with them and  support tbem if they take no interest whatever in their affairs.  Merchants should interest themselves in good roads, securing  farm help, advising farmers how  to prepare their products to meet  the market requirements, etc.,  and if they do this, which is  nothing more than tbeir duty,  and to their own advantage they  will do more to check the enormous drain in the country through  the mail order houses than by  anything else.  This seems to be the only  natural way to cope with the  question. It would lift the trade  to a higher level, and it would  interest all to boost the town and  its neighborhood, and make each  feel that he ia an important cog  in the machinery wheel and part  and parcel of the entire social  fabric.  How to Cure  Chronic Colds  and Bronchitis  Bluevale, Ont, May 4, 1910.  "I was sick for two years with a  chronic cold and-bronchitis and a  consequent run-down condition. I -  received no benefit from- doctors,  and had to give"up work. VINOL  was recommended and from the second bottle I commenced to improve  ��� I gained in weight and strength,  ray cold and bronchial trouble disappeared, and I am at work again.  I want to recommend VINOL to  anyone who is in need of such a ���  medicine."���Thomas Hkkiins.  It is the combined action of the  curative elements of the cods' livers  aided by the blood making and  strength creating properties of tonic  iron contained iii VINOL which  makes it so successful in curing  stubborn colds and bronchitis.  VINOL is a constitutional remedy for chronic coughs, colds, bronchitis and pulmonary troubles, not  a palliative.like cough syrups.  Try a bottle of VINOL. If you  don't think it helped you, we wiU  return your money.  J. L White, Druggist, Greenwood  The Marrying Mania  A handsome woman who had  been so unfortunate as to find occasion to divorce not one, but  several husbands, was returning  from Nevada. In Chicago she  happened to meet her first husband, for whom, by the way, she  has always entertained a real affection. "Upon my soul, if it  isn't Charlie!" Then after a wistful expression of regret had come  to and been banished from, her  countenance, she added: "Old  chap, I've often wondered where  you were and what vou were doing. It was too bad we didn't  get on better together. I hope  your experience hasn't been as  unpleasant as mine. I'm just  sick of marrying strangers!"

The World's Host Remarkable College Graduate  The story of Helen Keller's life is tlie biography of two wonderful  women���the blind, deaf and dumb girl, who for over twenty years has fought  against awful odds; and the kind, ingenious and patient teacher who has  led her charge into the sunlight of knowledge and of kinship with humanity.  In 1886, when Miss Annie Sullivan was called to Tuscurabia, Ala., to  assume the care of Helen, the child had been living for nearly five years in  the mt*ital darkness that followed her treble affliction resulting from convulsions. The task of education seemed well-nigh hopeless, for the one sense  through which the chad's mind was to be awakened to consciousness was her  sense of touch. But in June, 1904, eighteen vmrs later. Miss Keller graduated from Radcliffe with distinction, and received her degree of B. A.  This fairy tale of education, this romance of the conquest of obstacles,  Is a superb triumph of concentration. At her entrance examination in June,  1900, as if Nature had not sufficiently handicapped her'efforts, she had to  submit to two additional trials. The questions were given her in the American Braille system of writing for the blind, with which Miss Keller was unly  slightly familiar, having learned the English Braille���the- two systems being  as different as two distinct systems of shorthand. This delay in puz/.lieg  out the translation of the questions was further aggravated by the fact that  her little Swiss watch with raised figures had unfortunate:*' been left at  home, so she had no means of gauging the time, yet her typeivriiyr clicked  out the answers and she "'passed"  with flying color.'; in every study.  During her college course, in many studies Miss Sullivan reputed the  lesson while Helen's fragile fingers feathering their w.iy .ovlt her senior's  fae?.  translated  the  muscular  motions of sr.">>ch   inh'  ideas,     ir'-'.ie  .suniied  PIONEER WEEKLY  -OF THE-  If  I  English, Latin.

BURN CAUSED OPEN SORE  Zam Biik Worked a Wonderful Cure  Wolves Infest Island  The rapid increase of timber  wolves towards the north end of  Vancouver Island, and tbe serious  inroads these animals are making  among the deer and smaller game  has resulted in the despatch by  Game Warden Bryan Williams of  two experienced hunters and  trappers to investigate conditions  and adopt the best means presenting themselves in dealing with  this pest, by which even tbe Wapiti herds are now threatened.  The increase in the bounty to $15  has not been sufficient to induce  the inaugurating of any vigorous  or systematic campaign against  the wolves, and they now overran the island mountain districts.  Some times a bad burn, a deep cut,  or some similar injury, sets up a more  permanent injury, in the form of an  open discharging sore. In such cases  Zam-Buk will be found of unequalled  value.  Mr. J. Nixon, of 901 William  Ave., Winnipeg, a blacksmith at the  C. P. R. shops, had his foot badly  burned by some molten metal falling  upon it. He says: "The burn was  a very bad one, and after the first few  days it left an open sore, which showed marked signs of blood-poisoning.  It discharged freely and caused me  terrible agony. For three weeks I  suffered acutely and could get no ease  At last I obtained a preparation from  the doctor, which seemed to stop the  discharging and made me quite hopeful, but finally the wound became as  bad7as ever.  I was then advised to use Zam-  Buk, and from the first application  the balm gave me relief. The inflam-  maiton was thoroughly checked, and  the poisonous matter cleared away in  a very short time after beginning with  Zam-Buk. Healing then began, and  in less than two weeks the wound was  thoroughly healed."  One of the  main  lessons  of  this  case  lies  right   here���try   Zam-Buk  first for any injury, sore, skin   disease  or  wound.     It   is  equally   good   for  piles,    blood    poisoning,      festering  wounds, chsps, cold sores, children's  eruptious, scalp sores, varicose ulcers,  chilblains,    etc.    All    druggists    and  stores sell at 50c. box or post free from  Zam-Buk Co.,   Toronto,   upon   receipt   of   price.    You   are   warned  against harmful substitutes and   inferior preparations,   whicli  yield  a bigger margin of profit  and   are  some,  times pushed as being "just as good "  Nothing is just as good.
