Thc endowment fund of the Diocese of  Kootenay is now in the hands of  Ihe executive committee of the  synod and a bishop will probably  be elected early in August.  Several travellers who regularly  visit all parts of B. C. have taken  particular pains within the past  few weeks to make note of the  fact that they see more well-kept  garden plots and home grounds in  Enderby than are to be found in  any town of similar size in tbe  Province. Truly, Enderby garden  makers are doing themselves proud  this season.  The Enderby City Band was reorganized the past week, with R. E.  Harkins as leader. It is intended  to have regular practices each Friday night, at 8 p. m. sharp. Any  musicians wishing to join are requested to be at the old school on  practice night.

Collins have consented to act. as  judges of the garden competitions  instituted by thc Enderby .Horticultural and Agricultural Society.  It is considered that the society has  been especially fortunate in securing the services of Mrs. McPherson  and Mr. Collins, as this assures.that  the judging will be done >by experienced hands. It has meant no  little-sacrifice for Mrs. McPherson  fo accept the work. She had already entered the Presbyterian;  Church garden in the competition,  and anyone having seen that garden  this season and noted'the beauty  of its telling points will realise how  much time and energy hasbeen put-  upon it, and also how many points  of- excellence' were sure to "have  been given it by the judges.- But in  becoming one" of. the, judges,-Mrs.  McPherson has, o'f course, to .with?  draw'her "garden from the compe'r  tition.;,,; She",-"wHin.riqtjc^hp^we.ver;;  .slacken her/efforts. in:makingythe  church? garden the show'gardenof  the '^district? ^Mr^"and-/Mrs;r-'Mc-!

What's the matter with the Kingfisher school ?  Wm. Roddeau is building a large  barn on his homestead.

Joseph Cooke has the foundation  Keady for his fruit packing shed,  and is now.hauling lumber and getting ready to build.  Joe St. George is doing a great  deal of improvement work on his  place at False Creek. He has a  small orchard planted; also fields  of clover, and small fruits in bearing. ' He is an enthusiast as to the  great possibilities of thc Mabel Lake  Valley.  REDEEMING "BAD" LAND:  ���������������������������_���������������������������" -*     *  Jas. Wynne has made a fine  showing on land adjoining the  Huffman place, on . thc road to  Grindrod. He has a grand clover  catch on what has been known as  ^tilkaliclay bed," and which has  been iclle-for some years. 11 was  thc most uninviting piece of land  on the way to Mara. Today'it has  a crop that proves it to be one of  the best. This remarkable change  has been brought about by giving  the land a thorough "overhauling."  Before planting, it. was worked  and reworked, until thc clay surface-was ground to a coarse powder. Thc clover shows a solid,  rich green on every foot of thc  large acreage planted.  On thc opposite side of the road  Mr. Huffman has brought another  large tract of "barren" land under  crop.- For some years he has experimented with this land, without  satisfactory results. Finally Mr.  Huffman studied the habits of alfalfa. He was assisted by the advice received from the government experimental farm as to the  treatment of the land, and this  spring he has one of the finest  first-season catches of alfalfa to be  seen in the district.  In succeeding as,they have with  these crops on this stiff white clay  land, Mr. Huffman and Mr. Wynne  have rendered valuable service to  the district, and it is to be hoped  that other-owners of similar land  will follow their example.

JUNE 25, 1914  THE GARDEN SPOT OF CANADA  In thc May number of Fruit- and Farm, that  excellent monthly magazine. published in Vancouver, which is slowly but surely finding its own  in the magazine field of Canada, Mr. Sidney Bill-  ingham has an interesting article on the Okanagan Valley.   Mr. Billingham sees in thc future of  thc Okanagan thc bcautyspot of Western Canada.  "Sheltered by  the   mountains   from  the cold  winds of winter," says he, "and tempered by the  cool lake breezes in summer, this garden spot  of Western Canada rests secure in its climatic  advantages, in the fertility of soil, in its immunity  from drought and flood, in its widespread popularity, in its great past and in thc still greater  future now irresistibly drawing nearer.   Traverse  its great lakes, drive over its splendid roads, visit  ils    picturesque    nooks,    wander    through    ils  orchards and meadows, fish in its streams, bask  in ils sunshine, go where you will you shall not  find in Western Canada a fairer spot, nor one  which combines so well a means of making a  good livelihood with Ihe comforts which make  life worth Jiving.  " 'The Okanagan' is thc name applied in a  general way to Ihe country stretching from Sicamous junction, on thc C. P. B., to Ihe foot of  -Okaiuigan-Lake,-that-inagnificenUbod-y_oi_-.Nvater,i  sonic 75 miles in length, which gives its name to  the district. This section includes within its  boundaries numerous nourishing towns and  cities, such as Enderby, Armstrong, Vernon,  Lumby. Kelowna, Peachland, Summerland, Nar-  amala and Penticton, each of which is the centre  of a rich agricultural or fruit growing district.  "Fruil growing is undoubtedly thc industry  which above all other's stands out as the pivot of  OUanagan's prosperity; but, while a very large  proportion of the more recent settlers have devoted their attention lo this business, a surprising  development of mixed farming and dairying has  nol lagged far behind Ihe extension of orchard  areas.  "This is particularly true of Ihe country around  Evidence keeps accumulating that thc cause of  the high cost of living is thc 'depopulation of the  rural communities in Eastern Canada and thc  consequent under-production of the farms unable  to keep pace wilh the growth of Canadian cities.  To do what it can to assist in bringing the people back to thc land, the Borden Government has,  during its term of office seriously tackled thc  question of fostering agriculture in the Dominion.  Last year the statesmanlike measure was introduced bv Hon. Martin Burrell, setting aside the  sum of "$10,000,000 at thc rale of $1,000,000 a  year, for the promotion of agricultural education  in Canada. This measure is already producing  satisfactory results.  But, in addition to this, thc total expenditures  in agriculture have more than doubled during  the brief period of the Borden administration.  Thc following table shows thc growth since 1910-  11 and 1911-12, the last two years of the Laurier  regime:  1910-11  $1,192,417  1911-12 :     1,489,973  1912-13     2,436,103  1913-14     2,630,590  Last year, in other words, thc Borden government spent more than double thc amount that  was spent in 1910. This year, despite the financial stringency, the agricultural estimates were  larger than ever. .  The sympathetic attitude of Hon. W. T. White,  Minister of Finance, towards agriculture is shown  in the following statement in the House:  "Whatever money is required by the Minister  of Agriculture for the purpose of promoting husbandry throughout Canada, thc raising of cattle,  thc raising of grain, is going to be supplied, so far,  at all events, as I can supply it."

In  fact, the Northern Okanagan has shared the  'awakening,' which stirred Ihe valley when the  large farms began lo be cut up, has spread to all  corners of Ihe district; and the most approved  and modern systems of farming have displaced  the somewhat haphazard methods of earlier days.  The exports of potatoes, onions, cabbage, celery,  tomatoes and other vegetables is steadily increasing, while poultry raising is also being carried on lo a degree that places il well in the front  line of Ihe minor industries of the Valley.  "As lo ils fulure, il would be a bold prophet  who would endeavor lo set a limit. Perhaps emphasis may be given to that com pu la lion by  quoting Ihe words of Sir Richard McBride. When  opening the Okanagan Valley Apple Show in  Vernon, the Premier said:  " 'I am convinced lhat the future of this mag-  Thc London Daily Telegraph, recently published the following: "A huge pile of letters was  produced at Ihe Eastbourne Guardians' meeting  yesterday as thc result of the chairman, (the Rev.

HOW MUCH ARE YOU CULTIVATING ?  Somebody has likened Ihe mind of a man lo a  tract of land, say of 160 acres, to which acreage  we each and all are heir to. That is, all of us have  our quarter section. Thc difference in men turns  on the number of acres thai each may have under  the plow, and also under thc ditch. So the question is, how much of your estate arc you cultivating ? The so-called educated man may have  a little garden planted, and a grove of trees thai  wave their branches in Ihe breeze; for him flowers bloom and blossom���������������������������but only in one little  corner of the hundred sixty acres. This that he  may have an LL.D. All thc rest of his quarter-  section may be given over to swamp and swale,  to jungle and miasmatic pond, where the wild  things "crawl an wiggle and creep and struggle  and fight, multiply their kind and die.

To understand the position of the American  delegates one must read the statement issued by them'in reply to a  charge issued by the Huerta delegates accusing them of fraud, etc:  "The Mexican representatives entirely misunderstood the motives  and objects of the President, who  recognizes thc facts and sees in the  past success of the Constitutionalist  army, indisputable evidence of the  approval of the Mexican people.  But he also sees that the full tri  umph of that army means an indefinite continuance of the war,  with the suffering and bloodshed  and death which every war involves. ... To bring that war  to a close, to restore peace and  constitutional government is the  aim,of the President; and that end  can only be attained by consulting  the just wishes of the Constitutionalists, who are now the dominant  force in the country. ... If  those selected by the mediators to  administer the provisional government have the confidence of the  Constitutionalist, a long step will  have been taken towards the pacification of Mexico. ... If a  neutral should be chosen as por-  visional president we would have  secured no practical results, but  still be confronted with the insurmountable fact that the Constitutionalists, now almost completely  triumphant, would reject the plan,  repudiate the man and press for-  We're now in the Linotype  Class of Printers  Two-Magazine Model K Linotype  WHICH MEANS THE BEST CLASS OF WORKMANSHIP AT  THE LOWEST POSSIBLE PRICES COMPATIBLE WITH  THAT CLASS OF WORKMANSHIP.

To  meet the requirements of the present situation his sympathies must  be with the dominant element.  "The effort, therefore, should be  not to find a neutral, but one whose  attitude on the controlling issues  would make him acceptable to the  other party. Such a man, and only  such a man, can reasonably be expected to have the confidence and  respect of the entire country.  "The American plan contemplates that this, the most important  .election in the history of Mexico,  shall be supervised by the representatives of both parties. It is  true that the American plan proposes that a majority of this board  shall be Constitutionalists, but that  is because they now represent the  sentiment of the majority of the  people of Mexico, and this, on  which we must insist, has been  formulated solely with that end,in  view."  Y  ANOTHER FEATHER FOR B. C.  The Hon. Wm. R. Ross, Minister  of Lands, has received a letter  from the Dominion Creosoting Co.,  Ltd., of Vancouver, who have received an order for 160,000 creo-  soted railway sleepers from thc  Bengal and Northwestern Railway  Company, of India, expressing  thanks to the Forest Branch of the  Department of Lands, for their efforts in interesting the Indian  railway company in British Columbia lumber.  "The Indian railways use annually  very large quantities of railway  sleepers, and the habit of the past  has been to,secure a large,portion  of this timber from Australia, but  as the timber there "is becoming  scarcer, the price is slowly advancing.. As a direct result of the efforts of tie,Hon. AV. R., Ross, who  is directing the Forest Branch in a  campaign for trade -extension in  foreign .markets,^.this,^order _ for  160,000 creosoted \ties''���������������������������lias/been  placed   with   a   British?

Arrangements' have been  made to have the Forest. Branch inspect the ties both before and after  treatment, so as to ensure the specifications being strictly adhered to.  After the excellent qualities of  Douglas Fir have been tried but in  India, there will doubtless be further large orders coming to British  Columbia, and the creosoting industry will be given a decided  impulse.        ,  Y  ���������������������������  Y  Y  Y  *  y  y  v  y  y  ?  ?  y  y  y  y  J_o,  ?

Thc condition of  the bodies now taken out is almost  indescribable. Some of them are  torn to pieces or decapitated, while  there.still remains a large number  yet unrecovcred.  There arc still a score of bodies  in the mine, and hope has been  completely abandoned that any  spark of life remains, for, while the  intrior fires have been extinguished,  no human being could exist for any  length of time in the gas-impregnated atmosphere.  The cause of the explosion may  never be known, as every miner  within any reasonable distance of  the actual occurrence is probably  dead. In one short street of the  town there are thirteen widows as  a result of the explosion. Some  of these have lost brothers, husband  and sons, upon whom they depend  solely for existence.  ��������������������������� .

P. R. Summer Mountain Tour  There is no finer country on the  continent of America to travel at  this lime of year than that lo be  found in the mountain fastnesses  of British Columbia. And there  could be no better way lo cover lhis  vast sea of mountains than by railway and boat service, particularly  when such service as is provided  by Ihe Canadian Pacific Railway is  at one's disposal.  During the summer months, the  C. P. It. makes a special tourist rale  covering all Ihe interesting points  on that company's system, and the  number of people annually taking  advantage of these excursions has  increased by many thousands since  the summer excursions were inaugurated.  Banff the.beautiful; Field the  majestic: winding Arrow Lakes,  Neison by thc lake; Balfour on the  Kootenay; the Crow's Nest Pass, arc  some of the points of interest to be  encountered on the lour which thc  C. P. ft. has arranged for this summer for easterners and westerners  who want to make the circle of the  Canadian Rockies, thc Arrow and  Kootenay lakes. This visit lo the  lower Rocky" mountains of B. C.  and the Selkirk range can be made  any time between June 1 and October 31 for specially low fares  made by the railway company, and  the tickets allow the passenger to  stop off at any point along the line  which may strike his or her fancy.  Tourists from all over thc world j  seek this centre, for the scenery is,  grand. Nowhere may one find in  such a small area so many points of  interest. All these fascinating spots  are accessible by good carriage  roads or bridle paths. A short distance from Banff Springs hotel are  the Bow falls, a cataract of wonderful beauty; close by is tunnel mountain from which a splendid view of  Bow valley is had. Within a radius  'of three miles are the Hoodoos,  Cascade mountain, Sloncy Squaw  mountain, thc beautiful Vermilion  lakes, the animals paddocks, the  golf links, hot and cold water bathing   pools,   and   other   attractions.  One of the chief attractions of the  natural curiosities is the Sun Dance  canyon, a deep and curious cleft in  the mountain, whose very formation is mysterious. At a distance of  nine miles lies Lake Minnewanka, a  mountain mirrored lake walled by  tremendous cliffs thai rise from the  water to a fearful height. The lake  is sixteen miles long with a width  of one lo two miles. A launch takes  parlies about to various points on  the border of the lake.  Lake Louise Slalion  From Banff to Lake Louise the  route lies through thc Kicking  Horse Pass, and the scenery here is  magnificent The track crawls  through the canyons, twisting and  squirming like an eel. Lake Louise  station is in tlie middle of the''Pass,  practically speaking. Three miles  from Lake Louise station lies Lake  Louise itself.  The lake; like all good things,  lies hidden. It is behind the mountains It is said by many to be the  prettiest lake in the world. It is  the gem for which all the great  Rocky Mountains are the setting.  From Lake Louise (altitude 5,-  645 feel) good trails lead to the  principal features of interest in the  vicinity. It is an easy ascent to  Mirror Lake (altitude 6,550 feet)  and Lake Agnes (altitude 6,820 ft.)  which literally nestle amid the  clouds, encircled by majestic peaks  It is a three-mile trip to Saddleback mountain, which commands  an inspiring view of the famous  Paradise valley. At a distance of  about ten miles is Moraine Lake,  situated at the head of the valley  of the Ten Peaks, and reached over  a good carriage road recently constructed. Good camping facilities  are afforded on the shore of the  lake in the midst of scenic surroundings of surpassing beauty and  grandeur.

The next wonderful point of interest on the trip is the view of thc  two spiral tunnels which have been  cut through solid rock to lower the  grade of the railroad. Here is the  famous Rogers Pass tunnel and the  figure eight loops.  Field thc Majestic  After Lake Louise is Field, surrounded by snow-covered peaks,  tremendous glaciers, beautiful lakes  and glorious waterfalls, making in  all a veritable paradise for the hun-  ler.lhc fisher and the holiday outer.  A variety of pleasant excursions  may be made to the wonder spots  so plentiful in this region. Emerald  Lake, a delightful resort seven  miles distant, is reached by a good  carriage road clown the bank of the  Kicking Horse river, and thence  around thc base of Mount Burgees.  On the wooded shore of this beautiful lake the company has built a  picturesque Swiss chalet.  It is an extremely beautiful 14-  mile drive to the celebrated Taka-  kaw falls, of the Yoho valley, a remarkable cataract making a descent  of 1,200 feet. A trail continues up  the valley, past Laughing falls and  curious Twin falls, whose divided  waters unite in one stream before  reaching the depths below. Other  pleasant excursions may be made  to points of interest within a short  distance of Field���������������������������such as the Fossil beds, Aerial silver mines, Natural bridge, Monarch mine cabins  and the Grade Reduction loops.  Glacier and Its Environs  Leaving Field thc railroad crosses  the Columbia river at Golden, skirts  the foot of Mount Sir Donald, that  lofty snow-covered peak that pierces the white-banked clouds, and  rolls into Glacier, B. C.  Glacier lies near the summit of  the Selkirk range in "the midst of  mighty peaks and glaciers, woods  and waterfalls. From the hotel  verandah thc traveler will see apparently a few hundred feet away,  yet in reality two miles off, thc  famous lllecillewaet glacier, ' thc  great glacier of the Selkirks, and  larger than all the combined glaciers in thc republic of Switzerland  To the left the glacier Mount Sir  Donald rears itself, to the bright  blue sky. This may be seen from  the station on thc western slope of  the Selkirks.  Leading from the station a good  trail follows the turbulent course of  the lllecillewaet river to thc Great  lllecillewaet glacier and valley;  other trails branch off in all directions inviting and leading thc  mountain climber, explorer and  lover of nature to scenes of marvelous grandeur and enhancing beauty  Glacier Crest, Lake Marion and Observation Point are among the  shorter and easier ascents. Mount  .Abbot Js_ a _day|s_ climb, but not a  difficult one. From ils summit an  exceptionally fine view is obtained  of the Asulkan valley. Easy trails  also lead to thc summits of Eagle  Peak and Mount Avalanche. The  ascent of Mount Sir Donald is more  difficult, but with the assistance of  experienced guides may readily be  accomplished.  An excellent trail leads to the  Asulkan Glacier, through scenes of  Alpine splendor, and the recently  ! discovered Caves of NaUinui are  only distant about seven miles  from Glacier house by a good bridle  path.

Albert  Canyon  West from the Glacier the railroad follows thc lllecillewaet-river  vicinity till it reaches Albert Canyon. Here 150 feet below the track  may be seen the river, boiling in  the canyon, while the train runs  along the very brink, as if purposely to give the pasengers a thrill that  is not to be experienced anywhere  .else.  From the other side of the track  the cliffs rise to a tremendous  height, above which may be seen  the green trees waving their branches against the blue sky. ,  Passing through Albert station  the train hurries by Twin Butte  and then into Revelstoke.

It  is,y,however, -to be remembered  that we have not even an oil well  here yet What has been found in  the'Dingman well may turn, out to  for.,subscriptions, been frank toJ an  unusual'    degree. *   The    company  owns' an 611 lease covering ground  which" may   contain'l oil;   an'd, of  course, may not. ,  On this lease as  a basis, a company is formed" with  a" capital' of $1,000,000, consisting  of 1,000,000 shares of $1 each.   Of  these   share,s   the,, holders   of the  lease will get 400,000 for transferring the lease to- the company. The  promoters of the company are to  receive .100,000 shares, "and the remaining' 500,000 ��������������������������� shares are "to be  sold, but what proportion is to be  now issued-the prospectus does not  state.   When 1 per cent of the issue,  wfyich cannot be worth more than  $4,000, has been received, the company will be ready to do business.  -It j will ^begin  with a liability  of  $1,600.   Hie^brojters who sell the  stock are to receive 25 per, cent,  which,   on   $4,000,  will   come   to  $1,0007   This, .added to the $1;600  liability,   will   leave   $1,400   with  which".to-begin  development   .If  this   expenditure"   leads   to a .discovery-of oil; so that the directors  may be able to justify themselves  in saying that the field has been developed, .they are then at liberty to  unload   the " 400,000 * and" 100,000  shares upon  the public.    If they  sell ft at 25*"cents a share, they will  clean -up $125,000, and' will have  done a very fine stroke, of business  without being out of pocket a single  dollar.   If- the $1,400 does'" not "enable them to find indications of oil  they can call upon' the' subscribers  for further "payments on their stock  and continue their investigations'at'  rother.people's -expense.

SHOULD BE ON EVEN FOOTING  PREMIER BORDEN KNIGHTED  W. J, Woods  During the recent convention of  the Retail Merchants' Associations  of the Valley, at Vernon, Mr. Welch,  president of the Provincial association, addressed the convention on  the question of co-opcralion between merchants and producers.  Touching upon the question of|t}on  co-operative stores in competition  with the regular retail merchants,  Mr. Welch said: "We found out  that the Farmers' Exchange was  conducting a store on money bdr-  rowed from the Government at 4  per cent, under the Farmers' Association Act. This was manifestly  unfair. The merchants of B. C.  contribute from GO to 70 per cent  of the taxes, and to lend Ihcir  money to others to trade wilh,  while we have to pay the banks 8  per cent, was certainly unjust."  The Association had accordingly  interviewed the Attorney-General  and had succeeded in getting him  to amend the Act. The Attorney-  General agreed with them that it  was not the inlenlion of the Act lo  permit farmers to borrow government money lo engage in general  BAIL ALLOWED  Bail has been fixed by Justice  Murphy in the sum of 810,000 in  each case for William King, Arthur  Quinn, Larry Green, Thomas Sullivan and Thos. Chrislien, who arc  awaiting trial at Kamloops for the  murder of Berryman, who was  found by thc roadside dead, on the  way to Lumby, some weeks ago.  Cheap But Priceless  Nothing is cheaper, and yet nothing is more truly priceless than  kind words. They are to-human  hearts what thc cheerful sunshine  and refreshing summer showers are  lo growing flowers. Many a man  has been saved from ruin and disaster, many a heavy heart made  happy by a little word, which costs  nothing and is as easily spoken as  a word of cruelty and pain.  A man isn't necessarily charitable  because he gives himself away.  Gel your bread tickets at JOE'S.  O. K. Barber Shop  H. IIENDRICKSON,  Proprietor  Everything    new    and    up-to-date.  Next Ihe Fulton Block, Enderby  WANT ADS  merchandising, and the clause under which this was done had accordingly been eliminated.  Mr. Welch pointed out that the  history of co-operative stores had  not been an encouraging one. Nearly all had failed in this Province.  Indeed, statistics show that about  90 per cent of all those who had  entered into the retail business in  Canada went broke. When this is  true of regular merchants it did not  look favorable for farmers to engage in such business. In any  case, if farmers .wished to start cooperative stores, they should be on  an even footing wilh others, and  start them with their own money,  not on public funds borrowed  from the government, and furnished by the taxpayers of the country. There should be no hard feeling nor friction between the farmers and the merchants. It was absolutely essential that the farmers  and the merchants work together in  order to make a prosperous British  Columbia. What we need to-day is  more farmers farming, and more  merchants  merchandising.  The birthday honors bestowed  by the King this week, include the  knighting of Premier Borden, Hon.  G. E. Foster, Hon. Adam Beck, and  the bestowing of a baronetcy upon  Mr. Robert Nivison. Speaking of  the giving of these honors, the.Lon-  correspondent "Windemere"  says: "The honor bestowed upon  Premier Borden elicits warm sympathetic references from both the  Unionist and thc ministerial press.  It is grouped with the honor bestowed on Lord Kitchener, who has  been made an carl, and others in  the highest range of Empire  achievement, as showing that this  year's list reilects, in an unusual degree, the personality of thc King.  Everyone recognizes the fitness of  Hon. G. E. Foster's honor, especially in view of his services lo thc  Dominions' Royal Commission, and  the Hon. Adam Beck's for his electrical achievements. Canadian  ���������������������������financial circles arc especially interested in the baronetcy given Mr.  Robt. Nivison, whose stock-broking  firm holds a high place in Anglo-  Canadian finance.  >o-fo-fo-fo+<>+<>f<>4<>+<>+<>+^  NOT MUCH OIL YET  CANNOT SIDESTEP THE LAW  ADVERTISEMENTS under this head  3c a word first insertion, lc a word  each subsequent insertion.

Will  take as part payment town properly. Apply, Jas. Ellison, Enderby  There is a local trade licence bylaw -which requires anyone engaging in any line of mercantile business to pay a business licence of  ���������������������������So for each half year. This law  applies to all alike. The first time  this law has been brought ,into  question is by the officers of the  Enderby Growers Association, who  are declining to pay the business  licence for the privilege of engaging in a general flour and feed  business, yet doing business in  competition wilh the flour and feed  and general merchants of Enderby.  Just how the Growers' Association  hopes to escape paying the trade  licence and at the same time continue "to^lo"businessV we flfrrto"iunP  derstand. If the Growers were  buying direct from the wholesalers and selling direct to members  of the Association, and members  only, it would be quite a different  matter. But when the Association  enters the retail field, and sells to  members and non-members alike,  it cannot -well-escape- the licence  charged other traders with whom  (hey come into competition. II  is hardly likely lhat the growers  themselves would think of attempting lo sidestep the licence, for  they cannot blind themselves to thc  injustice of such a proposition. It  is only fair that they should either  keep out of the general flour and  feed business or pay the trade licence lhat all tradesmen have lo  pay for the privilege of doing business.  Harry R. Johnston, a former member of thc United States Geological  Survey, and the joint author of. a  standard work on the California  oil fields, visited the Monarch oil  well, west of Olds, a day or two ago  in company with a representative  of the Vancouver Province. No  evidence of oil having been struck  at the well' was to be seen, says  the Province, but the party was  quite willing to accept the word of  the gologist, Mr. B. W. Dunn, who  bears an unimpeachable reputation.  The only trace of oil evident was  in a very slight scum at the grass  roots some 25 yards from the well  where water from the dumpings  had flowed down, carrying the oil  scum on top of it. Mr. Dunn explained that fact by pointing out  that previous reports that a bailer-  ful of thc oil had been brought up  and dumped were entirely erroneous. "The only oil- which escaped on the dumpings;" said Mr.  Dunn, "was the drippings from the  drilling tool. This was washed  down the dump with the small  amount of water used in thc well  for drilling. Later, a rain came  up and that accounts for only the  slight traces of scum now in evidence on the dump."  NEW POTATOES IN JUNE  That the orchards and farms of  ihe Okanagan and Similkameen can  supply the Vancouver market with  new potatoes almost as early as  California by the simple expedient  of planting the seed potatoes in thc  fall, is one of the most important  items contained in a report which  Fruit Inspector Thos. Cunningham  has sent in from the Similkameen to  :his-oflice-,stan7in_the-coast-inetropo_-  lis. Mr. Cunningham, who had  been inspecting the famous Cawson  orchard six miles south of Kere-  meos, had been entertained by Mr.  Cawson early in thc present month  to a meal at which fall-planted potatoes formed a dish. "They were  delicious," says Mr. Cunningham,  "and  proved   the accuracy of  my  contention, that if potato  would plant in the fall the following year's crop, they will be able  to put thc new potatoes on the market early in June."  WILL RETURN TO B. C  EVERYBODY WORKING  The citizens of Salmon Arm are  not going to have the people who  visit thc city on Dominion Day go  away with the impression that this  place is away behind the times.  They arc going to clean up the  streets as they have never been  cleaned up before.

He has tendered his resignation as  member of the British House of  Commons from St. Pancras, and il  is expected by his political friends  and enemies that he will shortly appear in the political arena in this  Province.
