BLACKBURN - NICHOL NUPTIALS  The shipment . of, no less .than sixteen carloads of choice Okanagan apples for Australia by the steamship  Marama on Wednesday night of last  week, together with 300 tons of B.C.  potatoes, and a large quantity of  onions for Suva, Fiji Islands, has  given great satisfaction to Fruit In^  spector Cunningham because the Australian, quarantine regulations in.regard .to, fruit" are the most severe in  the world, says the Vancouver,Province.

Nichol, to Mr. William Blackburn, was celebrated in the Presbyterian church Wednesday afternoon  Oct. 8th, at 4 p. ni., the Rev. Mr.  Dow officiating.  Miss Annie Thompson acted as  bride's maid, and the Misses Kate  Nichol and Nellie Linton flower girls,  with Ernest McMahon groomsman.  The church was crowded by the many  friends of the young couple, and was  appropriately decorated with asters  and asparagus ferns.  After the ceremony was concluded  the wedding party adjourned to the  home of the bride's parents where  the wedding supper was served.  The bride and groom are highly, esteemed by- all Enderbyites, where  they have residad from infancy. Mr.  Blackburn has prepared a cozy home  for his young   bride   in the Poison  Flewwelling addition, where they will;Forms   of   declaration   can  reside. Itained at the City Hall.  Vernon citizens were not anxious to  take the Okanagan Apple Show this  season, but since they have taken it  up they are determined to make it a  success, and something in which the  Valley can take just pride. Plans  for the show,   which will be held on  the_ 22nd_ and.. 23ra of ,_October,..are  rapidly being whipped into shape, according to the News.  The Apple Show Committee is considering tentative plans for some  form of evening entertainment to be  held in the exhibition building, and  will probably arrange for two concerts.  Many inquiries are coming in from  prospective exhibitors. Special rates  for the Apple Show have been announced by the C.P.R. for all towns  and cities between Calgary and Vancouver on the main line, and all  points on the Okanagan branch. The  rate will be one and one-third fare  for round trip tickets sold from Oct.  ''21st to 23rd, with a final return  limited set for Oct. 25th. This rate  will' be cut in half for bands or other  musical organizations coming to the  Apple  Show.  Householders and licence holders  are reminded that if they desire their  names placed on the City voters'  list for the ensuing year it is necessary for them to make the statutory  declaration required by law, and to' should provide  deliver same to the Oity Clerk some sary information,  sons of two and a half hours a lesson, the school extending over the  week. In a limited number of districts a double packing school can  be-arranged for, in which the minimum guarantee will be twenty:four  pupils, but not more than thirty, for  the same number of lessons.  The hall for 15 pupils must be at  least- 30 - feet" by " 15 "fcetTand "well  'ighted. It must bc sufficiently  heated to prevent chilling of thf  fingers of the packers, and to prevent freezing of the fruit a/t night.  The Department will as far as possible, use local fruit. At the time  of making application for the pack-  ng school, you are requested to reserve fruit at the rate of 2J to 3  boxes per pupil. The harder varieties, such as Ben Davis, are preferred. Fruit must be in good condition, but need not be graded, and  none should run under 2\ inches in  diameter. The Department will pay  the legitimate market price, as determined by the Instructor on inspection.  Jf local fruit cannot be secured, the  Department should bo expressly notified and will undertake to secure  same.  The instructor will bring with him  the necessary packing tables and  fruit paper. The Department expects that he will be met on his arrival by some responsible person,who  him with all neces-  so    as to get the  time during    the   month of October, school  under   way    without    loss of  be   ob-, time  It seems   hardly   necessary to pre-  experts* of the various' provinces.

Little  The.Summerland Review says,  and  we think very wisely:,  "The folly of the policy adopted by  the Okanagan Telephone Company is  very    evident.       This   policy,  which  has been "persistently adhered to, and  is likely to be continued until death,  is a sure and certain   means of slow  but effective   suicide.       The attitude  of 'take what I give you or do without,' and lack of effort to co-operate  with, ancl endeavor to m-eet the views  of telephone    users,  is accomplishing  the only   possible    result.   As far as  we can    learn    close   to if not fully  half   a    hundred    'phones    connected  with the Summerland Exchange have  been ordered out, and in" view of the  increased price and the dwindling usefulness    of    the   remaining      'phones  others will rapidly   disappear.      Reference to the notes of our Peachland  correspondent   will   show " that    the  ame    result   is    experienced     there.  Seemingly but    few    'phones remain.  *TH*e==P -5axhllTO=:^frespoirdeff'*r==say s:  There  is  considerable  dissatisfaction  expressed   with    the   Okanagan Telephone Co.'s    rates,    indeed,  so much  so tbat almost all the phones among  the farmers have been taken out, and  also some of those in business places.  Out of   twenty    on    this side of the  town not one remains."  -A-similar attitude is-shown-by the  telephone company   in Enderby, with  results    similar,    though   on a somewhat smaller scale.     In Enderby the  telephone company   is    bound  by the  franchise granted by the city to give  a $,'! service to business bouses and a  $2    service    to- residences.     But the  new rates    adopted   by tbe company  makes   tbe   charge     $. for    business  'phones   and    ?3   for    home  "phones,  with a rebate   of $1 in either case if  paid  on    or    before    the 15th of the  month.       The    company    is    further  bound by franchise    to give 11 hours  continuous service    daily except Sun  day, and this,  they say, thcy cannot  afford to give with the limited number of 'phones in use in Enderby.  This, of course, is the telephone  company's business, The arbitrary  policy adopted is certainly not increasing the 'phones in use. They  are growing less monthly, and will  eventually be so few as to make the  few in use of little or no value to  the users who feel they cannot do  without them. The company apparently docs not care whether the people of Enderby do business with it  ���������������������������m i n r\     i        l  i\/r       ���������������������������n n   > or not> arul- after all is said, this is  Eldernell Orchard, Mara, B.C. jthe   company's   privilege,     it is one  In 1908 is cost tbe city of Enderby  three months of hard fighting and a  few hundred dollars to put through  the franchise finally agreed to and  accepted by the old Okanagan Telephone Company. Whether or not  the franchise as adopted was worth  the effort and expense then put forth,  is a question that has never been put  to a test. In any event, the franchise as then adopted stands today,  and is as binding upon the new company as the old company. When the  question of putting the new rates and  hours into force came up in the City  Council some weeks ago on receipt of  a notice from the Okanagan Telephone Company, the City Council  instructed the City Clerk to "notify  the company that such change of  i-ates if made would be a direct infringement of the agreement entered  into on Sept.^ 12th, 1908, between  them and the City and that it is impossible for the Council to sanction  such an infringement."  On the following month, the telephone company rendered a monthly  account for $4 in accord with the  new regulations which the Council  had refused to sanction. The matter again came up and "it was moved  by Aid. Worthington, seconded by  Aid. Blanchard, 'that the payment  be offered to the Okanagan Telephone  Company at the old rate, and no  more." The motion was carried  unanimously. "  On or before the 15th of September  City Clerk.Rosoman received instructions from   Acting   Mayor Worthington to pay the   account of the Okanagan Telephone Company in accordance with- the    new' rate, and which  the .Council had   -refused to sanction  at. the two ..previous meetings of. the  Council.   And payment was so made.  What we would   now like to know  is the    position'   of   the   City in'the  matter?" The City Council* is on record as refusing   to    sanction the infringement of   the   conditions of the  franchise, by    the    company.   And in  the face of this, ��������������������������� and Aid. Worthing-  ton's own   motion    to adhere to-the  old rate,  we   have    Mr. Worthington  as' acting    mayor   ordering   the City  Clerk to make payment in compliance  with the new rate and regulations.  If Acting Mayor Worthington in  giving these instructions was* acting  under instructions given at a subsequent meeting of tbe Council, then  the Oity is admitting that the telephone franchise is not worth the paper it is written upon. On the other  hand, if Acting Mayor W7orthington  in giving these instructions acted on  bis own authority and without the  khoXvledfc^f  You    will    find    exactly  what you have been planning in the way of a stove or a  range at this store at your own  price.

CHRISTIE, Manager  A case of general interest to farmers and others throughout British  Columbia was recently brought under  the seed control Act, when ,the Sylvester Peed Company of Victoria,was  'convicted of selling cabbage seed of  low vitality without indicating the  i percentage of the same. Under Section 10 of the Dominion Seed Control Act all farm and vegetable seeds  which germinate lower than two-  thirds thc standard vitality of good  seed for that particular variety,  must be labelled with the percentage  of. germination.  It is the intention of the Dominion  Department of Agriculture to strictly  I enforce all the provisions of the Seed  j Control    Act   of>   1911,   and    anyone  !handling seeds should see to it that  their seed ' complies    with    this Act.  The   Dominion   Seed    Laboratory at  Calgary,  Alta., is   at the service of  anyone desirous of having seed tested  either    for   vitality   or    weed seeds.  Copies of the Act and information as  to the same   may   also   be obtained  from the same address.  ought to know, but we think it is  just as well to get up in time for  breakfast, at least until these scientific men have evolved a system of  doing without dinner and supper as  well.  SUMMERLAND  HOTEL  CLOSED  After struggling for some years to  conduct an hotel at Summerland  without a liquor license," the .hotel  company has finally decided to close  the doors, and Summerland's only  hotel will go out of business.

But -the people of - Summerland were  "dead sot" against allowing liquor of  any quantity to be disposed of in the  , hotel. They . did not use the hotel  themselves; they did not use-liquor  themselves;, they, did-not like to see  anyone else use Miquor;'.they did not  want to   see    liquor - around.

NEGLECTING WORK  Early this year the City of Ender  by voted upon a loan by-law to pro  vide the necessary funds to make repairs at the head   of the water system.     The by-law carried, the bond?  were disposed of and the money pro  vided.     Since which nothing has beei*-  done.     The temporary intake at the  head of the    system   is   so flimsy it  actually alarms    one to think of our  going   into    the   winter with such a  slim thread holding our water supply  in place.     The   matter has been discussed time and    again at the meetf  ings of the City Council, and various  decisions   arrived    at, but up to the  present time-   the   city is no farther  ahead than; when   tne spring opened.  It is becoming-'more important daily  that" this"work should be undertaken.  The winter'.* snows   are    only    a few  weeks off. '-ft is   only by the best of  good fortune    that   'the city's water  supply supply    has    not been cut off  this summer.     It    is almost certain  to go this fall or winter if the work  already, provided for is not soon undertaken.

Again 1 started bravely forth, keeping my eyes away from Molly, and so  J, like Stephen, passed by Lhe fateful  I timing and entered one of the inner  circles of the web nearer the center.      '  "I'm a spider," declared Molly. "Vou  are fiies.'of course. I shall put to death  the one that comes within my reach!"  "Happy death!" murmured Stephen  fc-xmiimenlally. ,  "Foolish tiy!" jeered Molly. ;  I was silent.   Somehow this race was;  n matter of life and death to me.    1  felt that if I reached Molly's side first  the victory might prove an opening for  ine to say something important to her��������������������������� i  to declare n;y love.    It needed  moon-:  light and .lime magic to bolster up my'  courage, for 1 was fearfully afraid of  ���������������������������women and of Molly Doughtou in particular, i  ing those rose petals along the narrow paths of the maze. Sometimes  they led away in a wide circuit from  the center and quite discouraged me  from ever reaching Molly. Again they  brought me so close to Molly that I  could smell the sheaf of white rose she  held In her arms.  ��������������������������� I compared,the-maze-to Molly her-  Belf���������������������������sometimes approachable, sometimes distant and puzzling���������������������������and I had  been for months striving to thread the  maze or tier moods and reach her  heart. Even now 1 did not dare think  what the outcomo ot niy daring question would be.  All at once Stephen gave a whoop of  "I'm on the right track now." he bellowed joyfully. "This is a cinch.  Watch me!"  I paused to watch him. 1 was not  fur from Molly. It would not take  many more turnings for me to reach  her provided the rose petals still pointed the way. Who had lost them���������������������������Molly, purposely?  Stephen was Hastening through the  aisles of the mu/.e with astonishing  speed. It certainly looked as though  lie had solved the secret. From the  house came the sound of n piano.' Molly's sister, Sylvia was playing Chopin  waltzes.  "I'm coming. Molly," panted Stephen  a.s he approached.  Then Molly's voice, low and anxious,  drifted across the Intervening rows of  boxwood hedge.  "Hurry, .luck."', she breathed softly.  I hurried; nay. 1 fairly galloped  around* the circle, following those  blessed rose petals to the center of the  spider web.

E. L. Wetmore, Mr. N. W. White, Mr.  J. A. J. McKenna, Mr. J. P. Shaw,  Mr. D. H. McDowall, and the secretary and the stenographer of the Commission, Messrs. C. H. Gibbons and J.  S. McArthur, spent last Thursday afternoon and evening in Enderby, and  the following morning were driven by  autos over the Indian reserves and  thence to Vernon.  It is difficult to understand how  anything can ever' be accomplished  by these - Indian Commissions if no  greater effort is made to place before  the ���������������������������' Commissioners the facts in connection jwith' these' Indian reserves  than was -' made in connection with  the visit of- the Royal Commission  to Enderby-' last week. * The Commissioners ..were men of the highest  rank; astute, keen and penetrating;  but everjr avenue by which they  might get "''at- the facts in connection  with the' Enderby reserve seemed to  have been ..effectually closed to them,  and they : heard very little evidence  that was of any service in enabling  them to arrive at any practical idea  of how - things stand. They came,  they saw- but little, and they heard  less. It is -doubtful if they carried  away with them anything in the way  of tangible evidence.  ' ,  The public of Enderby have looked  forward to "the coming of this Royal  Indian Commission ever since-it was  appointed" by the Dominion and Provincial Governments. It' was hoped  that' an opportunity * would be , given  for some'' evidence to be presented.  But this^ opportunity was not given.  It' wa������������������ (only by chance that a visitor  from Enderby,, to Vernon learned that  the Commission was expected to be  in the " Valley . shortly. Immediately  a letter was sent, to Inspector Cam-  miskey��������������������������� at ��������������������������� Vernon stating; that rthe  c tizensof this district desired, if c'or.-  .v-jnieht," to.get evidence before the Commission and-, desiring * to i know, when  the-Commission- was to 1 meet here*.  The reply came on Wednesday evening  stating that the .Commissioners were  t.) reach Enderby,by traiirthe follow-  ing (Thursday) morning,'and"advised  r ,������������������*���������������������������**( ,-.  a committee to meet them at the  station,' when- arrangements could- be  made for a hearing.  .  When ; the ** Commissioners" arrived  it was learned that Inspector Com-  miskey had" prepared - their, itinerary  before, hand ^ covering" the meetings  in the- Valley." They were to cori:  vene at thef Indian Mission church at  2 o'clock ; that -afternoon. Iti was  then noon. Through the kindness of the  Assistant" Secretary of the Commission, Mr. Gibbons, and the" Chief  Commissioner, it was soon arranged  that Mr. Fortune and Mr. Hassard  should ' come before the ^Commission  that afternoon. But they had no time  * 3 ������������������*?������������������ _*"?. evidence into shape, and ap-  school on the reserve���������������������������something the  Indians have been crying for (in  public and before all previous Indian  Commissions that have met here.)  Inspector Ccmmiskey even went so  far at one time as to have a teacher  actually engaged to teach on the  Enderby reserve, and the Indians did  not want him, so the school was not  established.  Mr. Hassard's evidence was directly'  opposed to that of Indian Agent  Brown. He did not wish to take  the stand he felt he had to, but he  could not listen ��������������������������� to the statements  made and not tell the facts as he  knew them. He did not think that  one-quarter .of the Indians on the  reserve had any right there. They  were men from other reserves who  are "adopted"'"in first one reserve  and then another to make a show of  noses. He had been in close touch  with these Indians for about'twenty  years and-knew as a fact that they  were not producing one-half off their  lands that they produced 15 or 20  years ago. They did not have all  kinds of stock on the reserve. He  had the chairman of the Commission  ask the Chief if they had a 'sheep or  a hog on the reserve, and the Chief  said "no." ' As for cattle, he doubted if they owned 25 all told. Their  farm implements consisted of a mower or two, and- perhaps a binder  with a few hand plows and drag har  rows.  Chairman: "They have a threshing  machine, have they not?',;  "No; they have not, and never had.  In fact, they do not now have anything to thresh."   '  Both Mr. Fortune and Mr. Hassard  thought the Indians , would be better  off'if they had but 50 acres per head,  with the balance "sold by the Government and the proceeds placed to "the  credit of the Indians and devoted, to  providing them 'farm - implements and  giving them proper 'training in agri:  culture.". aiid .-..proper schooling,-. and  better homes.-   '// "'A���������������������������'      .   ..   ,   ���������������������������*"  Bank of Montreal  Capital, $16,000,000  Hon.

Dill Bros.  psared before the Commission at a dis  advantage.  The evidence of these men was of a  general nature. They could not be  specific. They were called after the  Indians had been heard and after Indian Agent Brown had testified." The  Indians told the Commissioners that  they were satisfied, with their condition and "did ~not"~want~the~Govern-  ment to take any of their land away  from them. One of them refused  point-blank to give any evidence until the Commissioners were prepared  to tell him what they proposed to  do with .the land.  Indian Agent Brown testified to the  effect that'-'- the Spallumcheen reserve  embraced 3,353 acres, one-third of  which was mountainous and two-  thirds open, with about one-half of  this two-thirds tillable. The Enderby reserve embraces 5,600 acres: with  about 1000 cultivatable and 500 under cultivation. He testified further  that the population of these reserves  was 168 souls: 40 men, 40 women and  the balance rhildren. Further, that  these Indians are the best in the  Dominion; energetic, sober, industrious and all right. Further, that  they have all kinds of stock on the  reserve; all kinds of farm implements  and utensils; 350 head of horses and  a hundred or more cows. In short,  Agent Brown .gave a very rosy tint  to the atmosphere in and about the  Indian reserve. It came out, also,  that the    Indians   do   not require a  H. E. BLANCHARD  W. M.

C.  I  To the members of the B. C. Fruit  Growers' Association:  The shipping season being about  concluded, I am instructed by Mr. W.  C. Ricardo, president of this Association and chairman of the transportation committee, to request all  members of the Association to lay  before the transportation committee  any grievance or comments they have  on transportation matters relating to  shipment cf fruits and vegetables.  It is expected that a meeting of the  transportation    committee    will     be  held early   in    November to consider  the cases presented by you.     An immediate reply is,  therefore,  advisable  in order that, if necessary, the secretary    may    get   further   information  from you or from others' in substantiation of your case.     It is thc aim  of the committee to present nothing  to the Railway Commission but what  will stand tho test    of criticism and  examination.     It is by observing this  rule and   investigating    carefully  all  the cases presented    to it, that this  Association has   been able to secure  for you the recent reductions in both  freight    and    express    tariffs,    which  have this year   saved the growers an  amount estimated at over $20,000.  In presenting cases claiming rough  handling, over-charge, etc., you will  aid the Committee very considerably  by quoting definite instances in which  the abuse occurred. The absence of  direct evidence of this kind is a great  handicap to your case.   .  The B. C. Fruit Growers' Association has always labored to preserve  the most friendly spirit between  growers and    the   railway  company,  believing that a spitit of co-operation between the two is by far the  most likely method of reaching results of benefit to you and, at the  same time, satisfactory to the transportation companies. It is this  policy which has made possible the  many reductions in rates and improvements in service with which our  members have expressed themselves  well pleased.  You will realize, however, that  changes can always bc made, and  must be made, in the interests of our  increasing trade.  An early and rareful reply will  greatly aid the Committee in> its efforts to build up the most satisfactory transportation conditions possible for our industry.  R. M.

WOODS  ENDERBY  The Okanagan fruit growers are  well pleased with the crops this year  and also with the way the crops were  handled, according to Mr. F. W.  Peters, general superintendent of B.  C. lines for the C.P.R., who returned  a few days ago to Vancouver from  an inspection trip of the district.  "The growers, judging by the reports I heard," said he in an interview, "are well satisfied with the out  put this season. They are securing  better prices than formerly and are  shipping larger quantities than before. The canning companies are being kept well supplied with fruit for  preserving, and plans are being formulated for the establishment of a  vinegar factory at Vernon.'-  Discussing his trip, Mr. Peters said  he had investigated a number of  questions with a view of recommending, improvements in the facilities at  different points, to be instituted next  year. The advisability of enlarging  the ice houses along the route of the  Okanagan branch line and the steamship service "oh the lake will also be  considered, stated Mr. Peters.  -It.is said to .take a good man.to  handle other, people's money, but a  better man nowadays to get money  of his own to handle.
