Exemption-* tn tbe regulation* n
the new eieht-hour law have been
made by the government, through
tbe hoard of adjustment headed by
J. D McNiven, deputy minister of
labor and chairman ot the board.
In the interior of lbe province,
where lumbering is one of tbe chief
industries, some leeway bas been
allowed. Realizing that in many of
the camps where the season only
lasts from five to s ven months, tbe
hoard is permitting tbe lumber mill*
to operate for nine hours daily
where circumstances warrant. In
the baking business, where holidays
demand that an extra supply of
bread he furnished at short notice,
tbe bakeries Mill be permitted to
operate for longer than eight hours
daily. Tbe same applies .to tbe
case of engineers in various lineB of
industries and in otber cases whsre
a hardship would be worked upon
the businesses affected However,
Hon, Mr. Manson has announced
that, the full letter of tbe new eight-
hour law must be lived up to and
prosecutions will follow any infringement of the regulations.
Premier Oliver's recent return
from Ottawa, where he attended tbe
federal railway conference, bas been
received with mixed opinions of his
success with regard to the disposition of the Pacific Great Eastern
railway. Tbe Domiuion government
has decided to construct a railway
that will give the Peaoe river country an outlet to the ports of the
Canadian Pacific coast. Even though
the proposed line may not form a
direct line of commuoicitinn over
Pacific Great Eastern, it is felt here
tbat the opening up of tbe huge
empire of tbe north will benefit tbie
province to such a large extent that
the annual deficit and interest
charges on tbe Pacific Great Eastern
will be small i   comparison.

Victoria.Jan. 22 —Tbe efficacy of

bu been fully demonstrated tbrough
the,remarkable apprehensions of
Am rican criminals during tbe past

all over tbe continent to "take off

was the apprehension of tbe perpetrators of the Nanaimo bank robbery. While the attorney general

for tbe arrest of tbe criminals involved, it is only fair to ssy tbat be

judgment in the appointment of bis

tbrough fheir clever work. Upwards
of a dozen hijackers and murderers

trial, and it is safe to say that the
almost inoredible skill shown by tbe
provincial police in tracking down
the felons will act as a strong doter

United States who think British Co*

British Columbia Fruit
Growers' Association in
Convention at Penticton This Week
The British Columbia Fruit Growers' association has been in annual
convention at Pentiction this week.
With more than SOOU members,
this establishes a membership record of more tban balf tbe possible
membership of all fruit growers in
the province. Victoria and Salmon
Arm tie with 266 members eacb for
leadership in districts. Eight districts have surpassed tbis year all
previous membership records.
Reeve J. Kirkpatrick, in bis welcome, expressed tbe belief that the
Oliver irrigated area would soon be
one of tbe leading fruit producing
districts in British Columbia,
President L. E» Tay Ior stressed the
extension of tbe tomato growing industry as an outstanding example
of tho value of united action by tbe
Discussion of a resolution witb
refereuce to closed packages for fruit
elicited from Mr. Tanner of Saanich
an emphatic opinion favoring the
grading of strawberries, He said
Gordon Head and Saanich growers
did grade, with the result that last
season they got 40c per crate more
for th ir berries tban anywhere else.
President E. J,- Chambers of the
Associated Growers said they would
webome the classing of crates for
apples as closed packages.
More than ordinary importance
attaches to this convention, because
of the extended policy of fruit merchandising during the past year.
Following tbe convention a meeting
of tae directors of the Associated
Growers will be beld.
Tbe program of addresses included
one on dehydration experiments, results ank recommendations, by C.
S. McGillivray, based, in part, upon
valuable aesults attained at the dehydration plant in Penticton.
President E. J. Chambers,  Asso
ciated Growers, spoke on "Coopers
tive Marketing."
The resolutions for discussion
covered the whole range of fruit
growers' problems from irrigation
of tbe orchard land to freight rates
by rail and ocean.
Tbe new agent general for British
Columbia in London, F. A. Pauline,
deliveied an address wbicb was of
more than ordinary interest in view
of his recent appointment aud tbe
importance of developing in Great
Britain a market for British Cylumr
bla fruit.
Resolutions endorsing imperial
preference and Dominion marketing
boards were consolidated at the con*
vention Thursday morning,and tbe
executive instructed to further these
questions, with power to appoint a
special committee to deal witb the
matter. The importance of the imperial preferenae question and thc
best method of furthering its consummation evoked considerable
discussion , F. A. Pauline pointed
out that such matters should be
taken up through theCanadian high
commissioner's office, on wbom be
would call immediately on his .arrival in London.
The resolution fathered by E.
Foley-Bennett of Penticton,requesting tbe federal government to estabi-
lish facilities in Britein for the storage of apples, so as to eliminate the
auotion system of selliug, waa
amended s.> as to ask for orderly
market conditions. It was pointed
out by Mr. Chambers that the storw
age question was being thoroughly
gone into by the Associated.
Thomas Bulman's resolution asking tbe C.P.R. to give improved
boat service on Okanagan lake for
the handling of fruit was passed.
Trahsportation companies will be
aeded to allow tbe commodity express rate to extend through tbe
year for eucb fresb fruits and veges

dates of November 30 and   May 15.

A huge wooden, tar-paper lined
shell erected over the space provided for the structure and heated by
thousands of feet of steam coils
connected with 380-horse power
boilers, which provide a summer-like
atmosphere for the carrying on of
construction, is an interesting and
novel feature of the arrangements
made to combat the difficulty of
building the new wing of the Chateau Lake Louise, the Canadian
Pacific Railway's famous Rocky
Mountain hotel, under winter conditions. Thanks to this innovation,
the wing, despite frequent drops in
temperature to far below zero, is
progressing excellently and the company expects it to be ready for next
summer's tourist season.

But dealing with huge figures, one would think that at least the
chefs on this giant Canadian Pacific Steamship would be to some extent
awed by what is before them. Think, Madame Housewife, of having to
prepare 185,000 pounds of vegetables, of having to roast 53,000 pounds
of beef, 37,000 pounds of lamb, 27,200 pounds of other fresh meats and
2,750 potm-ls of sausagns. Would it not tend to take some of the joy
out of a tour month cruise? Yet this is the task of the stewards' de-
Itsrtmont of tlte cruising Empresn Supposing that with the necessary
asttW.-mee you hart to prepare 12.000 pounds of chickens, 7,000 of capons,
4.000 ■:' ductlings, 2,000 of goslings, 8,000 of turkeys, 2,300 of guinea
fowl,  pigeons, quail, etc., and innumerable game fowl for the table
en route; would you be so keen on your trip?
All joking apart, the unattached young ladies who figure on the
passenger list will be thrilled to know that the aggregate weight of
the nuts aboard totals 1600 pounds, and tbe unattached young men will
be equally pleased to learn that on all the ship there are only 40 cases
of lemons. But the little boys! It will indeed go hard with them. For
some hard hearted purchasing agent, with no little boys of his own, lias
ordered 16,650 tablets of toilet soap, 17,700 pounds of soft soap, 56 gallons of liquid salt water soap, and two tons of seourlng soap, and
soap powder! He thinks that 6,00(1 Polar Bars and Esquimaux Pies aro
going to compensate for all this!       '
It seems that Dad has been looked after very well. Canadian Pacific cruise officers tell us that for the round-the-world trip of the Empress of France, some 59,170 bottles of various shapes and sizes have
been taken aboard, and in addition 54,700 bottles of mineral waters.
A few other outstanding figures in connection with the four months
supplies for the 460 or 500 passengers are as follows: 750 cases nf
Canadian apples, 250 cases of grape fruit, 36 barrels of grapes, 500
pounds of dates, 890 lobsters and crabs, 20,000 pounds of fresh flsh,
3,804 pounds ot coffee, 30,160 pounds of sugar, 2,280 of tea, 250 gallons
of olives, 6,600 pounds of salt, 1,780 bottles of sauce, 120,000 pounds of
flour, 10,000 pounds of butter, 22,360 pounds of bacon and hams, 50,ooo
drinking straws, 43,000 menu cards—and so on. Fresh fruits, vegetables,
flsh, milk and eggs will be purchased in considerable quantities tn meet
requirements as the cruise progresses. Fifteen thousand, four hundred
tons of fuel oil will be used by tho cruising steamer.

not more tban 15 per cent of all the

have bad a very prosperous year

Thousands of people also have
been waiting befoae buying seta in
