NEW INSTITUTE
farmers of Valley Hold Successful Organization
Meeting
Enthusiastic on Subject of
Holding a Fair Here Next
Autumn
The Farmers' Institute meeting,
held in the city hall last Tuesday
evening for the purpose of electing
pcrtuanent officers, was largely attended, nearly every rancher in the
valley being present, besides a large
number of townspeople. The cup
■von at the Nelson fair for the best
district display of fruit, and the two
medals won at Vancouver last week
by Messrs, Honsberger and Rooke,
were on exhibition in the room.
Mr. J. D. Honsberger wai voted
to the chair. In taking his seat, he
•aid he was pleased to see such a
large attendance, and that he felt
certain the organization would prove
.   -.. a success.   The institute was now in
|   |j| a position to transact business in a
legal manner. The election of officers was thpn proceeded with, and
resulted as follows:
President, James Rooke.
Vice-president, J. D. Honsberger.
Secretary-treasurer, Fred Clark.
Directors, Geo. Hansen, Tom
Powers, Ed Hardy, Ed Ruckle and
Dr. Tamblyn of Midway.
Tbe new officers, on assuming
their duties, made brief speeches.
Mr. Rooke was surprised and
pleased with the honor conferred
upon him, although he would have
liked to see Mr. Ilurrell elected to
the position. Ho would do everything he could to make the institute
a success, and would at all times be
glad to advance the horticultural interests of the valley.
J. D. HoiiBberger would work
hard for tbe success of the institute
The organization had elected a good
staff of officers. Through co-operation the fruit growers of the valley
had won moro honors during the
present year than any other section
of the province. There was no reason why, with united effort, these
honors should not be enlarged upon
next year.
Fred Clark waB pleased with the
honor bestowed upon him. The cup
showi'd what the valley could do in
the way of fruit growing. The fruit
grown hero was equal to any in the
world. He considered the institute
tbe most important organization in
tbe valley. There was no better
advertisement for the valley and
city than the fruit grown here. He
would not be satisfied until we got
a fair here of our own. He advocated making an attempt next year,
if only for a day.
Dr. Tamblyn thanked the meeting
for the honor of his election. The
ranchers of the valley should also
take an interest in raising pure-bred
stock. The institute, he felt certain,
could get a larg*e number of members from the Midway district. The
institute should start some kind of
an agricultural show in Grand Forks
next fall. He congratulated Grand
Foiks on the number of prizes won
byjtbe district at  fruit exhibitions
during the past summer.
Ed Hansen spoke briefly, congratulating the people of the valley on
the number of prizes won for fruit.
Ed Hardy said we had the soil
and climate in tbe valley, and in the
fruit raising industry we could compete with any other part of the
world, ne was willing to do all he
could for the institute, which should
be started out on a solid foundation.
President Rooke spoke briefly on
the importance of the Jprizes won
during the present year at Nelson,
Kaslo and Vancouver. The adverj
tising the district would receive
from them was beyond computation. At Vancouver Orand Forks
had come in competition with
fruit from the Hood River district
that sold for $3 per box, while in
this valley the growers had to dispose of their product at $1.50 per
box. And yet the Grand Forks apples had carried off the highest honors among eighteen entries. He
thought that one of the results of
this would be that fruit fro-n this
valley would command a higher
price next year. He advocated adding a few more varieties
to those already cultivated in the
valley.
Fred Cooper suggested placing the
cup and medals on exhibition in A.
D. Morrison's jewelry store, and on
motion the institute decided to carry
out the suggestion. It wis also de
cided to have a glass case made for
the trophies.
Wm. Spier, Dr. Tamblyn and
Fred Clark spoke at length on_jhe
advisability of forming ■tfJ-'agrici
tural association for the purpose of
holding annual exhibitions of horticultural and agricultural products
and live stock. It was. stated that
if the members of tbe institute purchased fifty $100 shares of the race
traok association they would secure
a controlling interest in the grounds,
which would answer all the requirements of exhibition purpn-.es foi a
number of years hence. By adopting this course, the association
would lie entitled to government
grants in aid of the exhibitions. The
matter waB finally disposed of by
referring it to the directors, who
were instructed lo canvass the district iu support of the project.
THE CITY COUNCIL
Returning Officer and  Deputies Appointed for City
Election
Anaconda Smelter May Close
R. L. Clinton, of Butte, Moot
attorney for the farmers in their injunction suit against tlm Anaconda
smelter, is in the city, says tne
8pokesman-Review. Mr. Clinton
refused to discuss thu smelter cuso,
which is still pending in the courts,
but which is said to bo practically
won by the fanners. The winning of
this suit by the complainants would
have the effect of closing the Anaconda smelter, owned by the Amalgamated Copper company. Itis the
largest smelter in the world, being
built at a cost of 810,000,000, and
having a capacity of over 10,000 tons
of ore per day. It employs 3000 men
and treats all the ores of the Amalgamated mines of Butte snd Ana
conda.
A. B. W.Hodges, general sup'r-
intendent of the Granby smeller, returned Sunday evening from a short
business trip to Spokane.
W. A. Thrasher, a former Grand

the city last Sunday.

to the board of works to report.
J. A. McCallum was appointed returning ollicer in the forthcoming municipal election, and Pete Donaldson
H. H. Spinks, Tom Powers and Donald McCallum were named as deputy
returning officers.
The council then adjourned.
FIT LAND SOLD
A. D. Morrison Buys a Tract
of Land Near the City
Limits
Slaughter House Has  Been
Erected in Defiance of
the Council
The regular bi-weekly meeting of
the city council was held in the council chambers on Monday evening, all
the members being present with the
exception of Aid. Horner.
Chief Savage reported that the fire
alarm system had been tested, and
that it had been found in good condition with the exception of the large
striker, and that would be repaired by
the city electrician.
The city solicitor and Mr. H. W.
Warrington reported that the Third
street drain had been repaired by the
Kettle Valley Line company.
The city solicitor reported that tha
council had no power to grant any
further concessions to the Kettle Valley Line company than those specified
in the original bylaw. In order to
permit the company to construct a
sidetrack near the government building, a bylaw granting the company
such permission would have to be submitted to the ratepayers. Mr. Sutton submitted the outlines of such a
bylaw.
Medical Health Officer Kingston
reported that he had inspected Mr.
Elmore's slaughter house, und had
found the same in a sanitary condition. The health officer expressed the
opinion that it would probably be as
well to pei mit the erection of a slaughter house in an isolated portion of the
city, where it would be under the control of the council, as to have it out
side the city limits, where it could be
run as the proprietors saw lit.ainl thus
become to menace to the public
health.
It appears that Mr. Elmore has
constructed his slaughter house on the
river bank in the West ward in deli-
unce of the resolution udopted on this
subject at the lu.*.l meeting of the
Council, and that he bus been using
the building for slaughtering purposes. On motion of Aid. Wouulund
uud Hardy, a resolution wus approved
instructing the city solicitor to enforce the provincial law in reference
to conducting public nuisances within
incorporated cities. I'tie law imposes
a penalty oi -Soil pur duy For maintaining slaughter houses inside the
city limits after lieiug warned to re
move the suine. .
On motion of Aid. Woodland and
Hardy, the city solicitor's report in
reference to the Kettle JValley line
wus adopted, and the bringing down
uf a bylaw authorizing thc coinpany
to construct a sidetrack ut Alexandra
street was concurred iu.
An unusually large number of accounts Were ordered paid.
A letter from Superintendent of
Education Itobertsoii stated that a
oheque for the 34UOJ school gruilt hud
byen forwarded, und the city clerk reported having received the suine.
The chairman of the board of works
reported that Woodhead hud used
some   logs   bel.eii.ing to Mr. Burton
Big Logging Contract
Geo. Taylor, the local contractor,
haB secured a big logging contract
from the Yale-Columbia Lumber
company, the papers being signed
last night. The agreement calls
for the clearing off of all the timber
on three of the ranches in the North
Fork district, and it is estimated
that they contain about two million
feet of sawlogs. Work will be commenced on the contract as soon as
possible, and about forty men will
be employed. Mr. Taylor had a
large contract from the same firm
last winter.
Local Labor Situation
The labor situation in the Boundary, so far as known, is practically
in the same condition it was a week
ago. While a number of conferences have been held between the
management of the Granby Consolidated and their former employees
during the past week, no news of a
definite character has been given
out to the press or the public. It
waB stated by an officer of the union
last night that matters had progressed to such a stage that everybody
who wished to tlo so would be able
to return to work within a week;
but whether or not the conditions
upon which the union men are willing to re-enter the employ of the
Granby are acceptable to the company is not known.
On Wednesday night the unions
of both this city and Phoenix took a
vote on whether the members were
to return to work or not, and it is
stated that the vote was largely in
favor of resuming operations, although no official statement has yet
been made on this subject.
On the whole, the situation appears to be more favorable than it
was a week ago, and it would not
be surprising if the company should
resume operations wilhin a week or
two. At present, however, the major portion of the matter printed on
the subject is founded more or less
on conjecture.
Judgment Reserved
W. A. Williams, assistant superintendent of the Granby smelter;
David Whiteside, barrister, and Or.
Newcombe went over to Rossland
last Sunday morning to attend the
session of the supreme court, wilh
Mr. Justice Martin presiding, in
connection with the case of Harrigan vs. The Granby company, an action iiy plaintiff for damages under

Will Plant an   Eleven - Acre
Orchard There Next
Spring
An important real estate deal was
closed this morning, Mr. A. D. Morrison, the jeweler, purchasing an
eleven-acre tract just outside tho city
limits from G. W. Ave*-ill. The consideration, while it is not made public, is understood to have been quite
reasonable, and Mr. Morrison considers himself very lucky in securing this
property.
The land adjoins the city limits on
the east, and runs as far west as the
Columbia greenhouses. On the south
it follows the meander of the Kettle
river, and on the north is the Danville road. It is cleared and ready
for the plow, and Mr. Morrison will
plant it into fruit trees next
spring. It is one of the prettiest locations in this vicinity, and will make
an ideal country home for a business
man in the city. Mr. Morrison has
already gained considerable fame as
an orchardist, and with the increased
opportunities in this direction, his
new fruit ranch will undoubtedly become one of the show places of the
city within a few years.
Surprises the Coast
Thomas A. Sharp, superintendent
of the experimental farm at Agazzi,
is in the city. In connection with
fruit culture in this section, Mr.
Sharp said: "I never say finer fruit
than that exhibited by the Grand
Forks growers, shown at the meeting of the Northwest Horticultural
Association at Vancouver, where it
came in competition with beautiful
fruit from Hood Kiver. Ore., from
Wenatehee, Wash., and from different parts of British Columbia. It
took the gold medal for the best five
boxes of apples exhibited. It also
took the second prize for ihe best
general display, Kelowna taking tbe
first prize and Wenatehee the third.
At tho exhibit, the. Hood River people said they had never been beaten
before. In this country, so far us i
cun sec, there are large areas just ns
good as Grand Forks, and there is a
brilliant future for this section of the
Kootenay.     At   the experimental
farm we have tested and have under
test two thousand varieties of apples,
about six hundred varieties of pears,
three hundred plums and very nearly two hundred varieties of cherries.
While the climatic conditions west
of the Cascades are radically different to Kootenay, I have no doubt
that a good many of the new varieties are hoth suitable and valuable
for the Kootenay. We have also
tested a grent many varieties of
small fruits, nnd thc Kootenay so I
und olimate is admirably suited lo
their successful and profitable production on a commercial scale.
With the proximity of rhe markets
uf the Northwest, it should and will
become a very remunerative business.''—Rossland Miner. WORTH
CONSIDERING
When   buying   from    u  jewelry
store wouldn't you consider it
very important to feel there
is absolutely no question
about quality i   When
you buy here, in the
house of Morrison,
you   don't pay
any moi e, perhaps
less, than in an indifferent stiire,hut you ure
certain   about    quality,
That point iilone is more im-
portant in choosing Diamonds,
Jewelry,    Watches   and   Silver-
ware than any other merchandise.

FRIDAI', DECEMBER 20, 1907
The policy of the Opposition in
the Federal House of Commons is
clearly one of obstruction. Member
after member on the Conservative
side consumes hours of public time
in "going upon record" upon public
questions. Theso gentlemen feel it
incumbent upon them to "get in
Hansard," copies of which are then
mailed to their constituents at the
public expense. The endless repetition of the same line of argument,
tho same quotations, the same examples, the same figures, wearies
the house beyond endurance. A
leading man in the Conservative side
says all that is useful on a question,
tpiotes all the authorities likely to
assist his argument and presents examples of more or leas value, generally less, and the subject may be
said to be exhausted from an opposition standpoint. This however
would not suit the rank and file,
they must give some evidence to
their constituents that they have
been to Ottawa, and spoken in the
House. The Conservative back benchers rise ono after the other and
follow the lead of their leader, like
iheep through a gate, using his
arguments, sometimes his very
words, und invariably his newspaper
quotations. They produce nothing
original, and do much to sup tbe
vitality of the members, and are a
source of thousands of dollars of expense to the country.
The govemmont was never in a
better position than now; the Liberal party is united in the House and
out of it. A programme of legislation has been prepared which will
result in good to all the people, and
thc carrying out of this programme
has been unreasonably delayed by
the obstructive tactics of the Opposition, who seek to make of Parliament the work room in which to
manufacture campaign material, losing sight entirely of the primary
functions of a representative body.
Heud The Sun and enjoy a Merry
Christmas.
The Homer-iaKers

down a tairly good  stumping story
Frank and Harry Lutley  are clearing some land on their ranch, about
five   mileB  above    Unnnnck   City.
While the hunters  were camped ut
the place they didn't want   to  blow
up any stumps for fear that the cannonading   might   frighten tin* deer
from thc neighborhood.    But  when
the Nimrods intimated  their intention of  returning  to the city, then
thc Lutleys Bfarted preparations i"
commence the war of extermination
against the stumps.  Neither of them
are  experts at  handling dynamite,
and they solicited information on the
subject    from   Mr.   Parker, who is
considered an expert on all varieties
of powder.    Mr.  Pinker told  tbem
that  the  most important thing in
connection with blowing up old tree
trunks was in cut the (use of sullic-
ient length   to  enable  the operator
to make a safe ret res t after lighting
it    Finally thev   got  one   stump
doctored with an injection  of powder; the fuse was cut, inserted  and
ignited.    The   hunters  started   for
the city in their horsepower conveyance; the Lutleys walked behind the
wagon.   When thc party hud nearly
reached Bannock they heard a tremendous   explosion   iu   their rear,
and to satisfy themselves that   the
whole  ranch   hud  not been blown
out  of   place,   they   returned and
made   an  investigation.     Imagine
their chagrin when tbey found  that
the  stump  hud only been slightly
splintered.   They Lutleys  are now
endeavoring   to   indent   a new explosive for extiucting stumps.

CITY NEWS
Gitizens' Meeting
A meeting of the business men of
the city was held Tuesday afternoon
in the city hall.
The following resolutions were
passed:
"Whereas, at the large and representative meeting of the board of
trade of Grand ForkB, it ii unanimously agreed that the present conditions existing in this city are most
disastrous to the business interests of
the citizens; and whereas, we are altogether without information as to
the actual conditions existing between the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting and Power company
and its former employees, than the
fact that a wage scale his been posted by the said coinpany, and we
feel strongly, as business men and
rate payers, that we are entitled to
information as to how such former
employees regard such wage scale;
therefore, be it resolved, that the
Grand Forks union No. 180 of the
Western Federation of Miners be respectfully requested to communicate
to the chairman of this meeting the
sentiment of the members of the
union relative to such proposed wage
scale as expressed by a vote of
meinbars."

B. C. Fruit in London
The Loudon Times of Novemler
29th says: The Royal Horticultural
society has rendered valuable service
to the colonial fruit industry and to the
home consumer by holding periodical
exhibitions of colonial-grown produce,
and .41 who desire to second their patriotic efforts in this direction should
visit the remarkable show of Canadian-
grown apples and other colonial fruit
whioh was opened yesterday at the
society's hall, Vincent square, Westminster, As was pointed out by Sir
Trevor Lawrence, the president, and
the Hev. W. Wilks, the secretary of
the society, in their lettor to The
Times of Wednesday, the subsidimy
objects which the society have in view,
beside? the governing motive of helping the colonies and making them feel
that we are all fellow-citizens of one
great empire, are (1) to'show the inhabitants of the mother country what
splendid and varied supplies of fruit
our colonies car. send us, and (2) to
enable colonial growers to discover
which of the fruits are best suited for
the British markets. The present exhibition is full of interest from this
point of view; and Canada—for the
Dominion at this period of the year is
the principal exhibitor—has every
reason to be proud of the specimens of
ber produce now displhyad at West
miniter. A finer collection of apples
has never been seen in any of the society's showsj than that sent over by
the government of British Columbia.
It is extensive and varied, and in
some respects is equal, if not superior,
to the best examples of English fruit
shown this year, notwithstanding the
fact that it has had to bear the strain
of a railway and steamship journey of
(iOOO miles. If the Canadian apples
ore nol quite up to the English stund
ind in llavor, many sorts are superior
in color and cleaner in  skin, and  the
grading is remarkable. Cox's orange
pippins and the Blenheim oranges may
be singled out for special praise, and
there tiro excellent speciinons of
Twenty-ounce pippins, Ribstone pippins, Kings, Wolfe Rivers, Golden
Russets, King of Tompkins, to mention onlv a few. British Columbia is
evidently in earnest about fruit growing, It is one of the infant industries of the province, but it is extent!
ing rapidly. The acreage planted in
fruit has trebled in five years. In
1891 the total was 6437 acres; in 1901
it had onlv increased to 7130 acres;
but in 1905 the orchards covered 29,-
000 acres. The increase during 190(i
was over 20,000 acres, the crop for
1900 exceeding §1,000,000 in value.
Complete figures for 1906 are not
available. Tlio express shipments,
however, last year aggregated 186S
tons, while the freight shipments nvei
the coast division of the Canadian
Pacific rail'i'iiy for ten months
omounted to 2102 tons. These ship
inents are far from representing the
whole crop, the greater portion of
which is consumed locally. The fruit
growing lands of the province include
the fertile valleys from the Rocky
mountains to the Pacific coast, and
from the international boundary north
to Carilion, the principal districts being Vancouver Island and the adjacent islands, New Westminster,
Okanagan, Lillooet, Yale and Kootenay. It is of interest to note the cost
of an orchard in British Columbin,
The cost of making a 20-acre orchard
is variously estimated from 82500 to
•**>3500, according to the first outlay on
land and the cost of local labor conditions. Care and maintenance for
five years, or until the orchard begins
to bear, would cost about $2500, less
value of the small fruits anil vegetables planted between the trees and the
fifth  year's return of fruit, which in
all should pay the net animal profit
of $125 to $150 per acre—original
cost of the trees. In the sixth year
the orchard should produce $850
worth of fruit, in the seventh $3200,
and in the ninth •S.jSOO, nfter which
it should pay au assured income for
life of $2500 to 93001) a yea.i This
estimate is, ii is stated, justified by
actual experience. British Columbia
is fortunate in being singularly free
From injurious insect-* and plant diseases which work great havoc in other
countries, ami this is a great savin*,,
of expense to the grower. As may be
seen at the exhibition, fruit packing
has been brought to a line art in the
province, the methods used being considered pei feet by experts. Circles
or dishonest packing is not tolerated,
offenders being severely punished.

The Farmer's Wife
Is very careful about her churn. She
scalds it thoroughly after using, and gives
It a sun bath to sweeten it. She knows
that if her churn is sour it will taint the
butter that is made in it. The stomach is
a churn. In tho stomach and digestive
and nutritive tracts aro performed processes which aro almost exactly like the
churning of butter. Is ft not apparent
then that if this stomach-churn is foul it
makes foul all which is put into It?
The evil of a foul stomach is not alone
the bad taste in the mouth and the foul
breath caused by it, but tho corruption of
the pure current of blood and the dissemination of disease throughout the body,
Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery
makes the sour and foul stomach sweet.
It docs for the stomach what tho washing
and sun bath do for thochurn—absolutely
removes evory tainting or corrupting element. In this way It cures blotches,
pimples, eruptions, scrofulous swellings,
sores, or open eating ulcers and all
humors or diseases arising from bad blood.
If you havo bitter, nasty, foul taste in
your mouth, coated tongue, foul breath,
are weak and easily tired, feel depressed
and despondent, havo frequent headaches,
dizzy attacks, gnawing or distress in stomach, constipated or irregular bowels, sour
or bitter risings after eating and poor
appetite, these symptoms, or any considerable number of thorn, Indicate that you aro
suffering from biliousness, torpid or lazy
liver with the usual accompanying Indigestion, or dyspepsia and their attendant
derangements.

A Socialist Catechism
Mr. George R. Sims Iuu written
"A Socialist Catechism,"   as  follows:
Workingman—I am a workingman
earning £2 10s. a week. I keep a
nice little home for my wife nnd children. .Why should I be a Socialist?
Socialist—Because under Socialism
yuu would not have to keep a home
for pour wife and children. The State
would provide the home and look after
your family.
Workingman—Would it clothe and
feed my children?
Socialist—Under Socialism, yes.
Workingman—Then what slmuld 1
do with my money!
Socialist—Spend it on yourself, my
fine fellow.
Workingman—I see. There is another question I have to aak. I have
been with my employer many years
and I respect him.    Is that wrong?
Socialist—Wrong! It is idiotic. All
employers are robbers and rascals. It
is only tho employed who are honest
and respectable.
Workingman—Then when a work-
ngman, liy sobriety, thrift and iiulus.
try, becomes an employer he becomes
a rascal?
Socialist—We make no exceptions.
All private enterprise is rascality.
Under Socialism the State would be
the only employer.
Workingman — Then would the
State, being the sole employer, be tbe
concentrated essence of rascality?
Socialist—No. The state under Socialism would be the dispenser of happiness for all.
Workingman—And what must I
do to help on the advent of this Earthly Paradise? Must I listen to Jack
Williams for nothing or pay half a
crown to see the plays of Mr. George
Bernard Shaw?
Socialist—You need do neither.
Your duty is to vote for the Socialist
candidate at all elections. Stir up
bad feeling betwaen employer and employed ou every possible occasion. Advocate strikes and collect for the
strikers. It is only by the complete
destruction of private enterprise that
Socialism can triumph.

^fe Evening   Sun
Workingman—I understand. Socialism having acquired everything,
will distribute everything equally
and everybody-will have everything
for nothing. Socialism will house me
and mine, clothe mo and mine, feed
me and mine, nnd provide ine and
mine with amusement.
.Socialist—Ceatainly. That is Socialism.
Workingman—One moment. My
wife told me to ask if, under Socialism,
she would have to nurse her own
babies and wasb her own children?
Socialist—Certainly not. ' Under
Socialism all children would be the
children of the State, and the State
would nurse the bullies and wash the
children.
Workingman—1 see. Ity-thc-hy,
should 1 be allowed In take my wife
out on Sunday?
Socialist—Under Socialism thero
would he no Sundays—all days would
be equal, like all men. Hut you would
not be expected to take A'our wife out.
The State would do that for you.
Workingman—And— excuse me—
who would wheel the perambulator?
Socialist—The State'
Workingman—The State would
take my family oil' my hands and I
should have nothing to do with it?
Socialist—Nothing. Now that you
understand the advantages of Socialism you will, I hope, allow me to
hand yon this red necktie and enrol
you as a member of our body?
Workingman—No, thank you. An
Englishman's home is his castle, and
his wife and children are part of his
home. My wife doesn't want her
babies nursed by the State, and I
don't want my face washed by the
State so long as I've got a bit of soap
and a towel to call my own. Good
afternoon, comrade 1
