! Col. Evans and his son made a very

prices! the best to buy. ; "\"-i" ���������"*

showing that there is a steady advance' in prices, though yet very low
as compared with the price of acreage
property elsewhere in the valley.

OCTOBER 13.  1910  PLACING  THE BLAME  At 1 a.  in., October 1st, an explosion occurred   in    the    Los   Angeles  Times building,    which shattered the  building  from    foundation  to tower,  and in a moment the whole structure  was a muss   of   seething   flames.   Of  the workmen engaged in the building  at the time of the explosion, twenty-  one are missing.   The charred trunks  of eighteen   of   them   have   been    recovered.   There    was   a report circulated that the catastrophy   was due to  the explosion of gas, but the general  opinion   has    been   created  that the  explosion ,was the work  of organized  labor.   A copy    of   the Times of October 3rd is to   hand.       It tells the  tragic story of the awful catastrophy  and mingles   with    its tears many a  thrust   at   its    enemies���������������������������the unions.  It ridicules the idea of the explosion  being caused   by   gas,   and says the  evidence points clearly to the door of  the   unions,   and   declares    that the  crime will   be   placed and the perpetrators punished.   A reward of $150,-  000 has been   offered   for the conviction of the   men   implicated, and the  best detectives it is possible to get  are being placed on the track of,_men  whom it is believed placed the dynamite. The Times cries aloud its  hatred of its enemies:  "The one place in the Times building that was not shattered by the  explosion was its tower, and the one  object that was not blackened-by the  smoke was the stone eagle, which  stands as ever perched upon the summit of the tower, with wings outstretched.  "O    you   anarchic   scum, you cowardly    murderers,    you   leeches  upon  honest labor, you midnight assassins  ���������������������������you whose hands are dripping with  the innocent   blood of your victims;  you against whom the wails of poor  widows and    the   cries   of fatherless  children   are   ascending to the Great  White Throne,   go,    mingle with the  crowd on the street corners, look upon the crumbled and blackened walls,  look at the ruins wherein are buried  the calcined    remains of those whom  I you murdered,    and then look'up���������������������������if  you   dare    raise   your   eyes   in that  direction���������������������������and   behold   the stone image of the eagle   that you could not  reach.    Behold-, the    emblem    of the  piercing eyes that will discover you.  Freedom. that you vainly endeavored j  to destroy,    of   the   Eternal  Justice |  that will surely reach you both now j  and hereafter."  There seems to be much of the  spread-eagle, holier-than-thou bombast about this scream from the  Times. But in the heat of the burning ruins it is   to be excused.   When  the Times cools -down it will look at  things more sanely.  Crimes    of   this    type���������������������������if   it   be a  crime���������������������������are    sure   to    react upon the  I perpetrators.      It    is    a   deplorable  i thing.   Yet there   is   a cock-sureness  ;about'the    Times'   arraignment that  may not be   justified   by facts.   Perhaps an  unbiased    investigation will  find very little   to justify the supposition that the unions were responsible for the explosion.   There is much  to be commended about the long fight  the   Times   has   waged    for what it  pleases to term "industrial freedom"  but few    union   men   will   admit it.  And there is   also . much to be commended about unionism, but we have  i never known the   Times to admit it.  It has been war   to the hilt, and so  long as   General   Otis   lives,   it will  continue, for   he   is a man who asks  no quarter���������������������������and gives none.   If it is  proven   beyond   a   doubt    that   the  destruction of the Times building was  the work of the men who are at war  with the Times,   the guilty ones will  and should pay the extreme penalty,  but in justice to organized labor the  world over, the crime should be fixed  upon the unions before they are condemned.     It   will   be   interesting to  watch'   future   developments.   The industrial   institutions   of Los Angeles  have com_ forward with a reward of  $150,000 for the perpetrators.   In addition to this   the   financial institutions and   business   men of the city  have raised a   fund   of $40,000 tc be  distributed   amongst   the families of  the men who perished in the building.

But B. C. apples  seem .to have captured the markets.  He writes from Saskatoon:  "Early & Co., jobbers here, report  having had five carloads of B. C.  fruit this season to date; all arrived  even better than she did at the Spokane apple show, and Penticton is  getting an exhibit into shape that  will open the eyes of her neighbors.  The Okanagan, indeed, will.show the  goods that ought to win the prizes.  . It is anticipated that this will be  the greatest display of apples the  world has . ever seen. It will be  housed in the Vancouver Horse Show  Association building. This building  has a grand total of 98,640 square  feet of floor space.  The big arena of the Horse Show  building will be used to display the  District, limited to two-box, two-  barrel, two-basket, two-jar and two-  plate contest, and box exhibits. The  show ring is 75x199 feet, containing  nearly 15,000 square feet. The exhibits will be arranged around the  ring upon an incline of 45 degrees,  having a perpendicular of about 12  feet and 12-foot base. This arrangement will give a continuous display  12 feet wide, 12 feet high and approximately 450 feet   long, and will have  spect'.V He stated it was the finest  fruit they had handled this season.  He further stated that they had  found it difficult to obtain enough  and had not been able to supply the  demand for B. C. fruits. Had one  car rolling in from B. C. now, and  thought this was our opportunity to  push B. C. fruit from the shortage at  other points. The Northern Fruit  Company, jobbers here, report our  fruit the best they have had this season to date. Have had a number of  carloads of B. C. fruit, all being very  satisfactory, and at the present time  are wanting to buy apples, and.pears  and are prepared to pay more for B.  C. fruit than for American, as it has  proved more satisfactory. Stated he  couid buy American fall apples, assorted varieties, at 75c to 85c per  box f.o.b.. point of shipment."  one which is doing most harm is that  of the land   surveyors.   Under existing laws the   land   surveyors of the  province have authority and refuse to  allow   any   surveyor   who   has    not  served   several   years' apprenticeship  in the, province   permission to work  at    his   profession.    It   means   that  qualified  men cannot take a job unless they    belong    to   the provincial  professional monopoly, which is very  diflicult   to   enter.   The argument of  qualification   does   not hold good, as  many of the survey jobs are done by  apprentices  and    assistants.   In this  country the survey of land costs n.ore  than the land    itself, and frequently  the land    purchaser   has   to go hundreds of   miles   for   a   surveyor.   It  needs no   argument   to show the injustice that is worked upon the prospective   settler.    It    is   keeping the  rancher off the soil.   Granting to any  class of workmen, either professional  or unprofessional,    the right to monopolize their   trade   in a province is  one of the   most   unjust and undemocratic laws in our constitution."  official capacity, in the course of  which every licensed hotel and every  provincial police office in the province will receive a visit���������������������������a purely informal call, for tbe inspector will  drop in entirely unannounced and  prepared to accept and to note conditions as they exist in every day  practice.

One American woman who, not provided with a black gown, went to the play attired iu light  blue, soon became .so painfully conscious tliat she was the  only woman in the entire house wearing a color that she left  before the play was over. It has been said that in conse-  tjnence of the enforced wearing of black an outburst of most  vivid colors, will follow, but that, remains to bo, "proved, and  the dressmakers arc busy turning out the smartest of all  black and black and white gowns thai are m.  becoming thev an1 certain to be copied.  fascinatingly  -v:_������������������������������������  . ___���������������������������. _>>��������������������������������������������� rf*>_9������������������j\ \  Wliite  Satin  Gown Veiled with Black Mousseline  Never were Iheie so many  black satin gowns worn, ihe  coat and skirt costumes especially, and it is lemarkable how  many different  kinds of black satin  there arc.    trome have  a  bright  finish, others a  dull;   then  some of the gowns aro  braided or embroidered, while others, and these the majority,  __o absolutely plain.

As has been already stated,  chore is a strong effort being made to bring in tho old-fashioned soft, lustreless silks in placo of black satin, but the former  is not  nearly so becoming a material and  it i.s doubtful if  the attempt will succeed.  The throe piece costume in black satin is certainly useful  -;_,..d-__j__:_! j,-'iiiil-iv.ll-ln'-i'riiiipil-fiii,-tli(> winter-in satin -finished  and all the light, cool materials are far more popular., Pon  lard, while emphatically o summer fabric, will this season be  worn late in the autumn, for tlio newest designs have a black  satin ground with only a small pattern of white, and that  quite far apart in tne design so that the effect is much more  of a satin than a foulard. One of the latest fashions is the  use of embroidery instead of lace on white muslin, the openwork light pattern and also the patterns thafc look like Venetian lace in design. This is always veiled with black voile  or chifl'ou and is newer than lace and i.s also combined with  lace, the yoke and collar, unveiled, being of the lace, while  all the other trimming is of embroidery, veiled with voile  de soie and chiffon.  In order to gain the desired effect of scantiness in silk or  light weight material thc greatest care is taken in the construction of the skirt. There is a foundation or uuderskirt  of the softest satin or silk, which is fitted as tight as possible  to the figure and reaches only a short distance below the  knees; on this is sewed a scant, straight flounce of the material and over this falls the straight skirt or tunic, finished  with a,;.vido hem. If the lines are too trying then thc tunic  is shaped to be shorter in the front or' the back and the  flounce has more fulness in the way of scant box pleats wide  apart. The most becoming style for any ono who is not  slender permits of a draped effect, as though the tunic were  long enough to dra fie across the front and tie at the side  with the back breadths. The lower part of the waist is  draped, the folds going around thc figure, not up and down,  and the material can either be drawn light to give a.s small  a waist measure as possible, or, like the classic draperies,  be left loose to quite hide the elfect of anv waist and make  the figure very nearly the same width at the waist line as at  tho hips. In description this fashion may appear impossible  for thc majority of women, but already it'is being so modified  and worked out that if is quite safe to predict that before  winter if will have become not only possible but even  attractive  .  The color that is introduced into thc black gowns is m3sf  cleverly dealt with. It, is never to be noticed in thc coat  or sidrl, but on the waist, when in bauds or folds, or waistcoat, it is most becomingly placed. One of the smartest  street suits for early autumn and winter is of black lightweight cloth; The skirl, short and narrow, is finished with a  broad band of black satin beaded with black braid in two  widths, one very narrow and onc quite wide. The jacket,  hip length, has also a band of satin beaded with the braidingj  and there are broad black sat-in rovers. The gown is not  so sombre as it would be without the satin, but, none the less,  is all black and would be perhaps dull looking were if not for  the most fascinating little fitted waistcoat of bright blue  moire. This is separate from the coat, which can be worn  without it if so desred. is fitted as carefully as the waist,  is open just a little at thc throat, is fastened with fancy  buttons, and it certainly makes the gown a hundredfold more  elaborate in effect. Cerise and a bright green aand an odd  shade of yellow arc all fashionable ii' color be desired, and  if a woman wishes to dress altogether iu black if is a relief  foknow there is some way iu which a too tiresome monotonv  can  be avoided.  Xot an absolutely new fashion is tho band of satin around  the bottom of the skirt; but it is at the moment a popular  style for the more elaborate street costumes, aiul is sr>.i. r.n  the all satin skirts as well as on the cloth���������������������������not oniv rhe  plain bands into which is gathered the fulness of the'sk'ut.  but thc straight skirt with no fulness is also finMied in  this  way.

PRICE RANGE FROM  $37 to $68  ACCORDING TO  SIZE  Twenty years ago I first visited  Winnipeg. It was shortly after the  opening of the Canadian Pacific, and  I saw the marvel .'of three trains a  day being sent Westward, loaded with  emigrants. ,  " How long," said'I, "can this be  kept up?'  Last month I saw exactly the  same sight, only.' with more emigrants and a better train service.  " We have kept it up ever since,'  said the man who had taken a score  of years to answer.  Every- day during those twenty  years three or more packed trains  have   started   Westward from Winni-  travel, and that these emigrants  would go home and come back, and  some would travel "first-class." The  courage, the faith, the determination  ���������������������������the persistency of those builders of  empire who carried the flags and  sighted the transits and laid the  lines of steel, is a poem as yet unwritten.

At  a little town three hundred miles  west of Winnipeg, I saw a man who  took up a homestead of one hundred  sixty acres five years ago.

Now and again you see a solitary figure driving four or six horses  to a gang-plow; all along one beholds  brown patches of cattle, the successors of the buffaloes that roamed the  prairies only forty years ago; now  and then a threshing-machine, ,and at  night distant fires burning stacks of  straw.  Northwest Canada has one hundred  and seventy million acres of arable  land, and only about ten million  acres are under the plow.

UNIVERSITY SITE NAMED  The wish was father of the thought  and none of us need feel that our  j ambitions were foolish or out of  reason. We believed the Okanagan  I Valley was the exact spot for the B.  C. University, and we of Enderby  could not think of any better place  for it than right here. However, if  we get right down to cold facts and  weigh the other side against our desire, we cannot but recognize that in  naming Point Grey, Vancouver, as  the most suitable site for the Provincial University, the. Commission  did the right thing. At all events,  Point Grey is named, and.Enderby is  out of it.   Should Point Grey' prove  Look at this Real Fire Box  It is wide, long, and deep.

The ordinary  rainstorms up and down the Fraser  are bad enough, but the rains of fair  week simply eclipsed all records. The  fair receipts were nearly $3000 less  than the receipts of last year, and  expenses of the exhibition far exceeded those of previous years. But  this unfortunate state of, affairs has  not put a damper on the officers of  the association. They are already  laying plans for the 191.1 fair.
