This Spring

Busy Putting in Their
Mr. W. J. Brown is very busy at
present putting in his crops on his
big ranch, which adjoins the city
limits on the east. He has just completed sowing eighty acres into
grain, and is now engaged in planting a sixty-acre potato patch. After
he finishes this, he intends to plant
three acres into onions—a sufficient
quantity to perfume the breath of
the people of the entire Boundary
country. Mr. Brown states that he
h is secured the contract to supply
the Calgary fair with potatoes this
fall. Besides the grain and vegetable
crops, Mr. Brown also has a contract
to plant two ten-acre orchards for

Messrs. Tweddle and Hill, who recently purchased 100 acres of the
( Newby ranch from McCallum & McArdle, are now ploughing their land.
They intend to plant the major portion of the tract with young trees ns
soon as possible. The nursery will
be forced ahead with all possible despatch. The most modern methods
are to be employed, and the work
will be done by experienced men.
Geo. E. Massie is having 800 apple trees planted this week on the
ten-acre tract east of the city which
he purchased from W. J. Brown last

Inspector of Fruit Pests
The provincial inspector of fruit
pests has been strenuously enforcing
the horticultural regulations and the
cleansing and spraying of orchards
has been more general throughout
tbe province than ever before, so
that with a favorable season and a
strict obseivance of the Dominion
regulations concerning grading and
packing, British Columbia should
give, a good account of herself in the
fruit line this fall.
Miss Ada L. A. Mureutt, fellow
of the Royal Scottish Geographical
society, has been giving a series of
lectures in the city during the present week to crowded bouses. On
Monday night her subject was "Japan and the Japanese," and Wednesday evening she drew a very
vivid picture of the horrors of the
sweating system in London and the
vice prevailing in the congested East
end. Wednesday afternoon she
spoke on "Women of Other Lands"
to an audience composed exclusively
of women, and on Thursdoy evening she concluded her course in this
city with a lecture on "Russia and
Ils Island Prison Saghalieu," Miss
Mureutt being the only British
woman who has visited this Russian
prison settlement. Miss Mureutt
appeared in this city under the pa-
tronage of the local branch of the
\V. C. T. U, and the primary object
of her lectures was to picture the resultant evils of the licensed saloon,
as well as to awaken the public conscience to the existing evils of the
day. Miss Mureutt bas a worldwide reputation as lecturer, traveller
and writer, aud has come through
experiences quite unique in their
way. Encircling the world four
times, she has encountered many
perils and dangers which few white
women, or men for that matter,
have bad the temerity to face. Having departed from the "beaten
track," and explored new regions
during her ten years' travel and observation in nearly every country
under the sun, she has collected a
lund of information und experience
which tend to make her discourses
uf absorbing interest. Her appearance on the platform is peculiarly
pleasing. She has a clear, penetrating voice, and the large audiences
which she addresses nightly have no
difficulty in following her ktury.
Her great fluency and descriptive powers at once captivate
her hearers, holding them spellbound from the time she rises to
speak until she resumes her seal.
She has the saving grace of being
able lo see the humorous side of
life, which partly accounts fur ihe
size of her audiences and the fact
that one never tires of listening to
her. When she warms to her subject in her peroration one is compelled to admire her for her earnestness, sincerity and wisdom. She
ranks as one of the most able and
powerful women on the lecture platform. If she ever returns to-Grand
Forks, she may be assured of large
Since the above was written, Miss
Mureutt has decided to give a
"Local Option Rally" in the Baptist
church tonight at 8 o'clock.
Work on the foundation of the
new Great Northern roundhouse at
Weston, which was destroyed by fire
last winter, was started this week.
It is understood that tho new building is to be of the same dimensions
as the old one.
The copious rains during thc present week has had a tendency to raise
the water considerably in all the
streams in this vicinity.
P. Burns it Co.'s slaughter house,
situated ahout two miles south of
Greenwood, was destroyed by fire
last Tuesday evening. The building
was valued at *}o000; insured for
82000. The origin of the fire is unknown.
The Pythian Sisters will entertain
their friends at a social in I.O.O.F.
hall this evening. A program, cards
and dancing will be provided as
amusement, and light refreshments
are to be served.
Geo. Taylor was out on the streets
one day this week for the first time
in many months. He is still in precarious health, however.
McAllister ct McDonald, the local
contractors, have secured a two-mile

of the E. A N. road, on Vancouver

President Hill Predicts
"Performanee is better than promises," said President Hill in a recent
interview in Vancouver, in discussing
the Great Northern project for building a line from Winnipeg to Vancouver through Canadian territory.
"A beginning has been made. At intermediate points we have many miles
of completed road that would furnish
links in the proposed route. We have
first-class terminals at Winnipeg, and
have also reached Brandon, in the
wheat growing belt. But the construction of such a road will take
time. That's why I don't like to make
promises. We did not promise to ex-
lend the V., V. ,fc E. through ll,-
S-iinilkanicen to Princeton this year,
and yet we will roach that point before Christmas. Difficulty is being
experienced in securing the proper
gradients over the summit of the Hope
mountains to hook up the eastern
section with the lino now building
cast from Cloverdale.

on Improvements at the
Little Bertha
Two workmen were sent up to the
Golden Eagle mine, located about
ten miles north of this city on the
North Fork, this week for tho purpose of cleaning up around the property, with a view of an early resumption of operations. A number
of carloads of ore wero shipped to
the Granby smelter from this mine
last fall.
Dr. W, II. Appleton and associates, of Spokane, wbo recently acquired a controlling interest in thc
Little Bertha mine, situate a short
distance north of tbis city, arrived
here last Saturday, and made an inspection trip to the property. Besides Dr. Appleton, those composing
the party consisted of P. J. Krafts,

FRIDAY, APRIL 2,4 1908
The intention of the federal government to see that Dominion elections in British Columbia and Manitoba are fairly conducted, has raised
a storm of protest from the Tory
press, and politicians of that persuasion. The preparation of the
voters' lists, and the placing of new
names thereon, his been under the
sole control of provincial ollieials—who are frequently appointed
more on account of their aptitude in
looking after stray votes than for the
fitness-of the olliee they (ill—long
enough, and it is therefore reasonably certain that the amendment to
the Elections Act will be adopted by
Ottawa government. The protests
of the wicked availeth not.

entailing a loss of about 'i'25,000.
The brewery is outside the city
limits and some distance away from

fire. When a sufficient quantity of
hose arrived it was impossible to
save the buildings, although a part
of the contents was saved by those
who could get there in time to help.

Mr. Jacobs tells some interesting

nearly every one, whether he knew

ihree men very prominent here at
that time, who were very careful
players, and whose names it would
be inadvisable to mention in the advanced stage of civilization of which
we are now so proud. The three
players were each given a "royal,"

"Sis in New York"
It is always a pleasure to be able
lo chronicle the success of a play
when such success is gained by legitimate methods and by absolute
worth of the play and coinpany.
Such a play is "Sis in New Vork."
That it has achieved one ol' the season's real bona fide successes, and
that it met wilh the hearty endorsement of both press and public
wherever presented is u known fact.
Its reoeption has been most cordial,
and the attraction is mentioned as
one of tho few really worthy dramatic offerings of the current season.
The story sparkles with a peculiar
wit and happy innovations. Tho
humorous situations are crowded
upon each other with a profusion of
resources, yet are never allowed to
break the steady development of the
story to its well defined conclusion.
The character types are of a refreshing originality, and there is picturesque interest to the entire production that is decidedly original and
unique, "Sis in New York" conies

Correspondence of The Sun.
Spokane, April 23.—Col. A. M.
Dewey, president and general manager of the Okanogan Electric Railway company, has received advices
from Charles M. Meeker, a representative of English capitalists, that
a 83,000,000 bond issue will be taken
over by the foreign investors. The
money will be used in the construction   of  a standard  guage electric
I railroad between Nignthawk and
j Brewster, in Okanogan county,
Washington, and eventually will be
extended to Spokane from Brewster,
175 miles. Mr. Dewey gave out this
"The road will extend from Night-
hawk, in the northern part of Okanogan county, to Brewster, in the extreme southern part of ihe county,
the head of navigation of the Columbia river. Construction work will
be started at the middle and at both
ends of the line before July 1, if we
can get the necessary labor, anc^ it is
expected that passenger and freight
trains will be running in eight-en
months from the time work is begun. The road, including equipment, will cost 830,000 a mile.
"We have already secured contracts for a large part of the right of
way, and have a site for a power
plant at Blue lake, which will develop 5(100 horsepower. An auxiliary |lint will be erected at the conjunction of the two forks of Simon
creek, near Conconully. The stream

to generate electrical power, it will
be turned back into a reservoir for
irrigating purposes.
"The road, as planned now, will
start at Similkameen river and run
on the west side of Palmer lake to
Loomis. It will then go past the
Q. S. mine and smelter site, and
from tho northeast side of Fish lake
we will have a water grade to thc
head of Johnson creek. From there
it will pass directly through the center of tho United Stales irrigation
project and along the west bank of
the Okanogan river to Brewster."
The Okanogan country has within
its confines several of tbe largest
mines in Washington, the owners of
which are negotiating with the company for the haulage of 60 cars of

His feet are swift to tumult,
His hands'are slow to toil;

His lips are loud in broil:

A Servant, when he Heigneth
Throws the blame on some one else.
