The answer ,is obfvious.   It is  better  to trade  within   the limits of  tlu Empire whenever possible,    and  with    this' point  iu view  much  pain  has been taken  lately  to bring     the  produce of colonial orchards  prominently'      into   '  the     home     market.  Thc exhibition of fruit chiefly     from  the Dominion and West Indies, which  opens  at  the Royal  Horticultural society's hall in  Vincent Square, Westminster,  is the latest outcome of this  cndeaivor.    Especially   noteworthy  is  thc great display of  apples .made by  the agent-general for  British Columbia,  expert opinion being that these  are of such excellent quality and so  well suited to the needs of consumers  in this country  thai-tbey cannot fail  to establish  a great   reputation,   and  probably in time displace   most fruit  of the same kind which  we have hith  erto brought from countries fixing a  heavy  tarill  upon  our   own  produce.  British   Columbia,    indeed,  promises  to become a great apple-growing coun  try o' the future.   Hitherto iho whole  harvest oi'its orchards has been taken   up by   neighboring   colonies;     but  during the past season  600,000 mono  iroes have been planted, and in a climate in which Jate spring, frosts.sdcn  as those  .causing    so much    damage  with -us��������� are almost unknown, its fu.  lure in 'this direction  seems avssured.  With  good land  selling at ������20,   and  returning  under   fruit   a profit sometimes of ������40 per acre, only limited  capital,  backed  by attention to   details  of cultivation and   marketing  is  necessary    lo gssume   a handsomere-  turn   to   enterprising   colonists.   The  Columbian display is by  far the largest at  the present show,  and  was  the only one ready at a private view  yesterday, afternoon.

Fitzsinimons and  J.  O'Brien entered  the ring tonight at  Mechanic's Pavilion   for.  the  light  heavy-weight   honors,  O'Brien  was favorite  in the betting by 10 to 8. Tbe men agreed     to  light at catch   weights.    O'Brien gave  o.it  his weight  at   105  pounds,   while  Fitzsimmons     is said to have tipped  the scale  at  158/pounds.    Mechanic's  Pavilion     had    one    of tbe greatest  crowds  in its  history.  In the  first  round  not more     than  four 'Mows  were  exchanged,   O'Brien  contenting himself with dancing afcout  with  Fit/, following,  but seldom   attempting    to      land.    In   the second  round FiiU crouched low, a,M     after  O'Brien bad missed a left and right  to the face Fitzsimmons  landed       a  straight left to the face and jbody. He  then drove O'Brien   into  the corner  and    cleverly  ducked a left intended  for  the jaw.' In tbe  break  that  followed Fit/, got in a light uppercut to  tbe jaw.    O'Brien  suddenly shot  his  left to the Taw, catching  Fit/, off bis  balance,  drove right  to thc lace and  then    clinched.    ,0'Bnen.   was very  illicit.    Fit/, shoved  his  right to Lice  ,'nd O'Brien countered with a    left  ab  to jaw.  Round 3f���������As O'Brien backed away  Fitz caught.him with a hard one to  the jaw and a moment later shot his  left to the face- Fitz. drove his left  hard to the solar plexus and missing, worked his left to face. O'Brien  ust as gong sounded shot a straight  left'that caught Fitz on the nose and  ient him to the floor. It was not a  dean blow,  being more of a push.  Round  4 ���������O'Brien   forced Fitz     to  'he ropes with  a rush  and   Fitz  fell  ���������n his knees Me was up very quickly j between 10.30 on the night of Dec-  lnd-..put a stfjl , left over O'Brien's I IStli, and seven o'clock on the morn-  We.

The prisoner entered no plea and  Mr. Russell Simpson, appearing foi  the prosecution, called Mr. T. Harrup, iwho in answer to counsel's  questions made the following statements.  "I remem^ier the night of Dectmi-  ber 18th. I went to bed in my room  m the fireball between 10 o'clock ami  ltl.30,p. m. I bad in my trousers  pockets as far as I can remember,  the sum of $21.75, $21 in notes and  75 cents :ii silver. There is a door  leading from my room to the fireball. It is generally closed. I usually rise at 7 a. m. On tlie morning of the 19th I discovered I had  lost my money aftei I had dressed.  This would be about seven o'clock.  The money was taken from my pants  I rove' two more lefts to the  dace. , ','O'Brien pegged away 'with  lis left and.Adrew blood from Fit/..  Finally Fit/, caught O'Brien over tbe  noiith, 'bringing blood. O'Brien put  in two lefts but Fitz. countered with  i bard right to the jaw.  Round fi���������Fitz met O'Brien'with a  rushing left as the latter led, Unit  the blow was partly blocked. Fit/,  took mvo straight left jabs on the  face, and after missing right and left  swings for the jaw, landed a right on  the eye.  Ro ind ?.���������O'Brien planted right over thcTfidncy and quick as a flash  .vor.ked right and left swings to jaw.  Kitz went after O'Brien, sending left  to face and a slift uppercut to body.  I'itz sent left to O'Brien's face and  followed   with  right   swing  to       thc  ody, hut O'Brien countered with  two wicked rights to the face, one of  which raised a lump over Fitz's right  eye.  Round S.���������O'l'.rien drove a straight  co the face Fitz worked bis left to  Lhe jaw twice and O'Biten was cau-  UoMcd for holding. O'Brien . ripped.'a  nasty .left over the eye and a mom-  wit ' late floored Fitz with -a stiff left,  hand' to  the jaw.    Fitz came. up  apparently  groggy.    O'Brien       then  drove his left to  the body  and forced  lu's  man  against the  ropes.       Then  c-anic two hard  lefts for the face. As  the round ended Fitz appeared to recover,-but .'wen-t  tolas corner rather  unsteadily.    It   was  O'Brien's  round  by a slight margin.  Round 9.���������Both appeared tired at  the start .nd Fitz's face was a  sight. O'Brien, after hooking a terrific right to the jaw, followed it  with two uppercuts and as the bell  raNg neanly raised Fit/, off the floor  with a right  to  the jaw.  Round lO.-O'Br'.'en met Fitz . with  a straight jab on face, but Fitz retaliated with a powerful right over  the heart and swung his left to the  face. O'Brien shot in two lefts to  Uie face as Fitz missed a ri'jghi swing  and quickly jabfced his left over the  mouth. Sunddeuly Fit/, booted hjs  right with great force over the. heal"t  and forcing O'Bnien to clinch. Fitz's  two hard punches in this round were  ������������������the best tff the fight.  Round   ll.-^ifz  in  a mix   followed  good deal he    said he got the money  in   the fireball."  "Did he tell you how he got ,it?"  "No, sir."  "Did he tell you anyone gave it to  him?"  !  ���������'No, sir."  "This was on tlie 19th?" '  "Yfte, sir, in the day time" >  "lie had     nothing    when you left  him oti the^i prev ous night, th       ht  of Uie 18th?"  "No, sir, he had nothing."  In answer to further questions witness said  prisoner had not  told him  how he had     got the money that be  had     been     spending.        The   court  was    asking     Malone if    he had any  .questions to ask, when witness interposed,  "By-the-way,  he said he   got  the   money out   of a pair of pants."  Prisoner:  "Did I ask you to ;   lend  me any       money on the night of the  18th?"  Witness: "Yes, you asked me  when we were standing in ihe porch  of the King's Hotel."  R. Haddow, the next witness, said  he remembered seeing the prisoner on  Monday night, the 18th., also on  Tuesday morning, Dec. 19th. He did  not see prisoner spend money on the  18th, but when he saw him on tbe  following morning he had a little  money.' Prisoner had,not told him ,  where lie,^r>{ it. --;,v-  Constable Callendar: "Did he not  five you some money.?"  Witness: "He stuck fifty'cents in  my hat Tuesday  morning."  Mr Simpson then called Provincial  Constable Cassidy.  Constable CTassiHy said prisoner had  been cautioned since h,'rs arrest that  ny s'iatement" he made would be  brought as evidence against him, and  he, the witness, thought the prisoner  enderstood clearly what was meant  by the caution. "I spoke to him  ,tjiis morning," continued the witness,  "and he admitted that.be had taken the money, -and-asked me if he  could see Mr.. Harrup and inform him  he would, if set free, make an Effort  to repay the money."  Mr. Simpson; "This was aften you  had cautioned him?"

The Lumberman and  Contractor in  a recent  issue says   "Logs  are rather high in price just  now.

Nearly /  all the-mills are in short supply, and  the  logs cut up the coast are pretty  well    contracted for.    It is too late  now  to talk  of weather conditions affecting the market.   The logs cannot  be cut and  sent to market in. time to  ease   the demand,-and   the       outlook  seems rather gloomy for cheap booms*.  There is only one relief for  thc mill-  man���������if he can  buy  the logs  cheaply  enough to manufacture lumber, at present' prices.
