About six weeks  ago the Reyiew advocated the passing of legislation making Easter a  fixed   holiday, and   now   that   tbis  *>a wson������   %x-?tt~>   Itoid    Rm msl******.     4-lw*rva.   i.r*    rrat  l-r ��������� t"-.*-       .~0~���������00      00^������������������^       ~000. ^00.^ ���������4m ��������� ��������� W *(^ ���������^*  into the hands of its. wide circle of  leaders we have a despatch from  London, England, announcing that  "Iiord Desborough goes to Rome  this month to the congress of the  International Chambers of Com  nierce with a resolution favoring a  fixed date for Easter. He admits  that tbe success of the proposal de  pends very largely upon the views  of the Holy See. liord Desborough  suggests the eeeond Sunday in  April as a permanent Easter Day.  The proposal is supported by a  large number of influential commercial bodies in Great Britain.1"  The Review is ecrtahl ly pleased to  have such distingvisiied backing in  this-effort, but we would respect  fully suggest the third Sunday as  the ideal date. After all the  weasher has much to do in making  a real Easter, and even in Kootenay the climate conditions are not  generally right until April is far  spent and May is at hand.  provincial election purposes, and a  very   few   days after we gave the  public   the benefit   of  our deliberations,   along   comes   a    despatch  right from Victoria indicating that  in the re arrangement of  constituencies this part of the Kaslo riding  might  be   merged   in   with .Trpiil.  Stranger   things   than  - this   haye  happened in the world of politics,  but at this distance such a  grouping seems quiee impossible m every  direction.    In the redistribution of  1915   Creston   Valley   -was discon-  n ected   from Trail, and   so  far  as  getting   its   full   share , of...-, public  works consideration its Inclusion is  Kaslo   constituency,   >vas.  a   very  happy   one, though it again placed  the   Valley   in a   riding  that  was  rather too lengthy and too poorly-  equipped with transportation facilities to enable the general road sup-  erintendent to give his district the  direct     supervision    ifc     required.  That we should again be  grouped  up with Trail hardly seems possible,  unless the intention is to merge the  towns  of * Rossland and Trail and  some    territory   adjacent   thereto  into one constituency, and have the  new  Creston constituency take in  the farming districts that make up  the rest of''Trail, as well as the lake  points in the present Kaslo riding,  and   place  Kaslo and   district   in  with* Slocan.  ard" bearer in  Slocan, exceptionally  well knowr. in Kaslo, the rejuvenated      Slocan-Kaslo      constituency  should not be impossible of redemp^  tion.    With the suggested  Creston  constituency    made   np   of   pnrely  agrieultu ral comtnu ni ties undoubt  edlyva farmer candidate-:.would be  in evidence here thus strengthening  the chances of the laberal  nominee  with   the   against-tbe-government  v<������jbe split.    Judging by the excell"  ent   consideration   Grand iForks is  getting  m^the   way   of   irrigation  loans   that   constituency   must  be  due to be merged with   Greenwood t  and in v.**!; ich case Hois. J. D.Mac-  Lean   should'-have  no  trouble   in  being   re-elected,   though   such   a  merger does not otherwise help the  administration    as     both     Grand  Forks and Greenwood are now represented by Liberals.  i  No, we are not trying to rush the season, but our  SPALDING'S���������Baseballs, Bats, Gloves, Tennis  Racquets, Tennis Balls, Rule B<rc>ks, eltc.

And   then,   again    great   minds  sometimes      function     differently.  Some  -weeks ago the Review had  . the prospective redistribution figur-  For purely political purposes  such move would wipe out at least  one Conservative member, as both  Trail and Rossland are now represented by supporters of Mr. Bowser, whilst the inclusion of Kasio  with Slocan would make that constituency good Liberal fighting  ground as ih the last two provincial  contestsiy Kaslo  has   always   gone  ed   out   whereby   Creston   Valley j Liberal strong, and with C.

Flett  that   prevents  the sale of fruit on  Creston    station    platform.     This  trade   has . been   carried   on  with  some profit to all who cared to try  their hand   as  fruit   vendors, and  judging froth the way the travelling  public   pile  off the train to secure  fruit its sale 13 quite a'   public con^  yenience.    After a couple of years  persistent effort  Creston   Board of  Trade hes  been .able^to have.only  the very highest class fruit exposed  for   sale, and   at   very   reasonable  prices, and in this way much valu-.  able advertising has been given.the  Valley and its fruit product.    Supt.  Fletfs excuse for withdrawing the  fruit selling privilege is that it conflicts witli the business of the new  agents on the train, and  therefore  loses  money ��������� for the railway company.

"" From all points that joined   tip local fruit unions are  busy  passing  resolutions   and   generally  giving  orders  as to how the B.C.
