Concerning Fruit Culture
in This Valley
Land Ready for Planting Can
Yet Be Obtained at Reasonable Prices
tiling is certain,thnt an unusual number of prospective purchasers ot
orchard lands nre making inquiries
for suitable locations in the Kettle
River valley, The fact that fine
LOrreCt rigureS orchard land can be got now in the
valley at figures ranging from j'JTo
to $100 per acse for unimproved
land, while the same kind ot land in
the Nelson and Okanagan districts
sell readily at $800 per acre, is having its effect on the general public.
Many of the inquiries come from
Manitoba, while some come from as
far as Nova Scotia. Realizing lhat
there will be a big rush out here to
select the best locations for fruit
farms when once thc spring opens,
these people want to make their se-
The Kettle River Valley,  in  the
centre   of which is located the city
of Grand Forks, contains over 10,000! lections while the snow is still on
acres of agricultural land, of  which | the ground.
the  greater   part is excellent fruit
land.   The valley is well  supplied
with   water,   as  the  Kettle Iti ver
Rossland Winter Carnival
The first event of the Rossland
flows through it, and several smaller winter carnival, which opens next
streams empty into the river at or j Tuesday, will bo the grand skating
near this point. This valley is just masquerade carnival. This annual
coming into prominence  as a fruit event is looked forward to each year
growing district, and this year it
outstripped all competitors by the
superior quality of the fruit grown
here, having won cups, medals and
prizes, both in this country and at
the London Fruit Exhibit.
Grand Forks bas the best school,
church and railway facilities of any
city in the interior of British Col-
. iinibia, and has a climate that can
scarcely be surpassed on the continent, for homes, and is admirably
adapted for fruit gjowing.. Late, or
summer frosts, seldom or never do
any damage, especially to the staple
fruits.
It.is difficult to estimate the returns from a fully developed orchard,
as very few of the orchards here
have attained full production. There
are several 100-acre tracts now in
fruit, mosily young trees. Mr.
Honsberger, orcbardist, hag eight
acres of prunes, the oldest in the
valley, which yielded him this year
$350 per acre clear of all expense.
Mr. M. Burrell, nurseryman, hae
half an acre of pears from which he
sold $400 worth of pears this year,
clear of expense. Apples, the staple fruit for shipping, grow to perfection, and although they do not
yield such great profits ns prunes,
piuuis, pears, cherries, strawberries,
etc., they are produced with much
less ex pens., alter the trees come to
healing. From §250 to $300 an
a rn is considered a fair yield for an
apple orchard in lull bearing. All
fruit irecs hear much earlier here
than in portions of the country less
favorable for fruit growing.
The best Authorities cluim that the
market fur fruit is unlimited, owing
to the heavy duty in shipping it in
fro .1 tin; American side, and tbat
the den,ami on the Canadian side
will grow [aster tiuni tlic supply.
A-i there bus been no land boom
here, first clnss land, cleare I, cultivated and ready 10 plant, can be
pinch.ised iu 10 and 20 acre tracts
at pries ranging from $100 to $200
an acre, according lo location, soil,
1'ic. In larger tracts the price is
less.
A number of ranches, including
the famous Newby farm, which adjoins the city limits, are now being
subdivided and offer excellent opportunities to parties wishing to secure first-class fruit lands at moderate prices.
Whether it is the mild weather or .
by a large number of the residents
of Rossland as one worthy of attendance. Itis the patriotic duty 011 the
part of a good many who desire to
see the carnival a success to attend,
because they feel that if the carnival is started auspiciously by a successful masquerade, that it will prosper to the end. Modistes have been
busy for some days preparing original costumes for the occasion for a
number of the ladies of Rossland,
and yet none of tbem will tell the
charactel' which they intend to portray on the ice. What costumes
they will wear are secrets, they say,
which even a woman can keep.
Judging from tbe bustle of preparation on the part of so many,the mas
querade will be even more brilliant
on this occasion than ever before,
and the onlookers will witness a
dazzling scene when the merrymakers bave all assembled on the
glittering ice. C. B. Winter has consented to act as make-up man for a
number of his friends, and as he is
a past master of the art, his work
will add considerably to the eclat ol
the occosion. First and second prizes
will be offered for the following:
Lady's costume, gentleman's costume, girl's costume, boy's costume,
lady and gentleman in fancy costume together, and there will he
some "specials.''—Rossland Miner.
Card of Thanks
We desire to express our sincere
appreciation of and heartfelt thanks
for the sympathy and kindness displayed by friends, and especially in
the congregation of Knox church
and the order of thc Knights of
Pythias, in connection with our
brother's recent illness and death.

F. H. Knight, Dr. W. H. Apple
ton anrl John F. Wikstrorn arrived in
the last Friday from Spokane, and on
Saturday they went up to Bannock
and iuspected the Little Bertha mine,
in which Dr. Appleton has recently
become quite heavily interested financially. The doctor, on his return, expressed hinrself as highly satisfied
with the mine as a high grade proposition. The trip to the property was
made with a view of perfecting arrangements for the immediate installation of exterrsive mining machinery,
which oan no* be hauled to the mine
over the Kettle Valley line. It is
the intention of the new owners to develop the Little Bertha as rapidly as
possible from now on,and the company
will expend $10,000 on work and improvements before the 1st of July. It
is averted that the first machinery
will arrive at the mine inside of forty
days. :  ;,_    4»:.*^f£
A special general meeting of the
Royal Victoria Gold Mining company was held in Greeuwood last
Monday for the purpose of considering the bonding of the Golden

the price too low and the terms too

J. A. Macdonald, leader of the
opposition in the local house, on
Wednesday made a speech on the
Asiatic question, in whicb be denounced as flagrant the attempt of
the Conservatives to fasten the blame
of thc Japanese influx on the Ottawa government. He declared both
parties were acquiescent in the
treaty legislation and equally to
blame, nnd thnt ns Jnpnn is now a
first clnss power, tbe course now
suggested was the most statesmanlike that could he followed. He declared the bill before the house, as
drawn, did not exclude Chinese or
Japanese. That had been dealt
with by the legislation of tbe parliament of Canada. The provinces
were only given power under the
British North America act to legislate so as not to interfere with any
act of the Dominion parliament.
He then dealt with the Hindu
part of the question separately, declaring that even against fellow
British subjects the people of the
provinces must he protected if necessary. He concluded by announcing his support of the bill and calling upon the Conservative government to insist on provincial rights
and require the assent from the
lieutenant governoj, who, he declared, waB no more under the control of Ottawa as a Dominion official
than the judges whom the Dominion
appointed.

A report is again in circulation to
the effect thnt it is proposed to run
a tunnel from Greenwood nnd Phoenix, tupping the leads between the
two towns and getting 2100 feet below Phoenix. The tunnel would be
a little over three miles in length
and cost three millions of dollars.
Chicago capitalists are said to be interested in thc project, and have already elected a president for the preliminary company, nnd a representative will soon he in Greenwood to
look over the ground. Many of this
kind of tunnels are now in use
in England and the United States.

I Glboe for $ I. OOper year. Opening of B. C. Smelter
In a recent interview J. E. McAl-
lis'er, of the Hritish Columbia Copper company, spoke generally of the
opening of the smelter, it gives the
views Mr. McAllister has expressed
riglit ailing, only indicating a more
hopeful feeling. It seems to be the
opinion of the company that good feel
ing between the men and tbe coinpiiiiy is an essential to the starting up
of the smelter. The manager thought
that the price of coke would be ar
ranged satisfi o ir.ly by the time operations would be resumed. Tbe
copper market is tightening steadily.
But the company would not resume
until all the conditions were propitious. The margin at present in
handling low grade ores was too close
to permit of anything but the har-
munious working together of all interests of whatsoever kind in order to
make a profit..
Want Sand
The Columbia Steel Works of Port
land lias offered a prize of $100 hi the
discoverer of a deposit of white silica
sand, and agrees to take 100 tons of
the sand each month at $U per ton.
Silica sand is necessary in the manufacture of steel, it is at present a
crying need in the steel industry on
the Pacific coast. The steel working
plants of Portland are importing their
silica sand from Minnesota at heavy
expense for transportation.
The needed sand is usually of a
color almost clear white. It must
meet certain requirements. The exact
wording of the Columbia Steel Works
offer is as follows:
"We willl take 100 tonseach month
ol' silica sand, 98 per cent pure silica
and free from iron oxides, delivered at
Portland at not to exceed $6 per ton,
and we will pay $100 in cash to the
discoverer."
Frequently it has been reported
that discoveries of pure silica sand bad
been .made in Oregon, but thus far
there was invariably something lacing in quality or quantity.
The demand is wide and very
heavy.  It embraces every  iron work
ing industry on the Pacific  coast, and
is constantly growing greater.

Gold Stampede Up North
From far up near the canfluence
of the Tngenia and Finlay rivers, almost midway between the Canadian
Rockies and the Cassiar mountains,
comes the report of a gold strike, the
most impoitant of any from northern
fields for years.
A stampede from Hazelton has followed the receipt of the news, and a
large party of prospectors has rrow
outfitted anrl gone tn the' scene of the
new strike.    More will follow.
The discoverers state that the prospects are of tbe best. The gold
brought out by them is extremely
coarse. The diggirrgs are reported
shallow. All the old tuners of the
Hazelton district are preparing to
make a rush to the new fields.

Concerning Fruit Culture

thing is certain.thatan unusual number of prospective purchasers of
orchard lands are making inquiries
for suitable locations in the Kettle
River valley, The fact that fine
orchard land can be got now in the
valley at figures ranging from $70
to $100 per acse for unimproved
land, while the same kind ot land in
the Nelson and Okanagan districts
sell readily at 8300 per acre, is having its effect on the general public.
Many of the inquiries come from
Manitoba, while some come from as
far as Nova Scotia. Realizing that
there will be a big rush out here to
select the best locations for fruit
The Kettle River Valley,  in the farms when once thc spring opens,
centre   of which is located the city i these people want to make tbeir se-
of Grand Forks, contains over 10,000 lections while the snow is still  on
acres of agricultural land, of which the ground
the   greater   part is excellent fruit

with water, as the Kettle 'liver
flows through it, and several smaller
Rossland Winter Carnival
The first event of the  Rossland
winter carnival,   which  opens next
streams empty into the river at or j Tuesday, will be the grand  skating
near this point.   This valley is just masquerade carnival.   This   annual
coming into prominence   ng a fruit
growing   district,   and  this year it
outstripped all competitors  by   the
superior quality of tbe fruit grown
here, having won cups,   medals and
prizes, both in this country   and at
the London Fruit Exhibit.
Orand Forks bas the best school,
church and railway facilities of any
city   in the interior of British Col-
. umbia, and has a climate that can
scarcely be surpassed on the continent, for homes, and is admirably
adapted for fruit g'owing.    Late, or
summer frosts, seldom or  never do
any damage, especially to the staple
fruits.
It.is difficult to estimate the   returns from a fully developed orchard,
as very few  of the  orchards   here
have attained lull production. There
are several   100-acre   tracts now in
fruit,   mostly   young    trees.     Mr.
Honsberger,   orcbardist,   haB eight
acres of   prunes,  the oldest in the
valley, which yielded him this year
8350   per acre clear of all expense.
Mr.  M.  Burrell,   nurseryman,   has
half an acre of pears from which he
sold **t400 worth of pears this year,
clear of expense. Apples, the staple fruit for shipping, grow to perfection, and although   tbey  do   not
yield such great profits   as   prunes,
piuiiis, pears, cherries, strawberries,
etc., they arc produced   with  much
less'ex pens.,after the trees come to
hi-iiiing.    From  $250   tu   $300 an
a re i.*. considered a fair yield for an
apple orchard in  lull bearing.    All
fruit trees   hear much   earlier here
than in portions of the country  less
favorable for fruit growing.
Tbe best authorities claim that the
market for fruit is unlimited, owing
to the heavy duty in shipping it  iu
fro .i the American side, and that
tbe den,ami on  the Cana lian   side
will grmv faster llinii the supply.
A-i there bus been no  land   boom
here, first class laud,  eleare I,  culti-
V.tletl   and    ready   lo  plant, can  be
purchased in 10 and 20   acre  tracts
at pries ranging from SlOO to $200
an acre, according lo location, soil,
tlte.    In  larger   tracts the  price is
less.
A number of ranches, including
the famous Newby (arm, which adjoins the city limits, are now being
subdivided and offer excellent op-
p irtiinilies to parties wishing to secure first class fruit lands at moderate prices.
Whether it is the mild weather or      The ice harvesters are now   work
the belief of   an  early  spring, one ing overtime in  this  neighborhood. I
event is looked forward to each year
by a large nuniher of the residents
of Rossland as one worthy of attend
ance. It is tbe patriotic duty on the
part of a guod many who desire to
see the carnival a success to attend,
because they feel that if the carnival is started auspiciously by u successful masquerade, that it will prosper to the end. Modistes have been
bufly for some days preparing original costumes for tbe occasion for a
number of the ladies of Rossland,
and yet none of them will tell the
character which they intend to portray on the ice. What costumes
they will wear arc secrets, they say.
which even a woman ean keep
Judging from the busllc of preparation on the part of so many, the mas
querade will be even more brilliant
on this occasion than ever before,
and the onlookers will witness a
dazzling scene when the merry
makers bave all assembled on the
glittering ice. C. B. Winter has con
sentcd to act as make-up man for a
number of his friends, and as he is
a past uiaBter of the art, his work
will add considerably to the eclat of

JAP IMMIGRATION
Speech by Leader of Opposition in Provincial Legislature
People Must  Be  Protected
Even Against the Hindu
British Subject
J. A. Macdonald, leader of the
opposition in the local house, on
Wednesday made a speech on the
Asiatic question, in which he denounced as flagrant the attempt of
the Conservatives to fasten the hlam.e
of the Japanese influx on thc Ottawa government. He declared both
parties were acquiescent in the
treaty legislation and equally to
blame, and that as Japan is now a
first class power, the course now
suggested was the most statesmanlike that could be followed. He declared the bill before the house, as
drawn, did not exclude Chinese or
Japanese. That had been dealt
with by the legislation of the parliament of Canada. The provinces
were only given power under the
British North America act to legislate so as not to interfere with any
act of the Dominion parliament.
He then dealt with the Hindu
part of the question separately, declaring that even against fellow
British subjects the people of the
provinces must be protected if necessary. He concluded by announcing his support of the bill and calling upon the Conservative government to insist on provincial rights
and require the assent from the
lieutenant governoj, who, he declared, was no more under the control of Ottawa as a Dominion official
than the judges whom the Dominion
appointed.

Rogers & Grilley
The Mason City (Iowa) Globe-
Gazette has the following lo say of
Rogers and Grilley, who appear at
the opera house on Tuesday evening, February +th, under the
auspices of the Grand Forks 20,000
club: "One of the best entertainments ever given in any of the star
courses of the city was enjoyed at
the Congregational church last evening hy a large audience of delighted
people. Rogers and Grilley proved
themselves artists of the first order,
and their program was one of
classics, as they advertised. Rogers
has a harp that would push any of
Tarn's halls orchestra off the platform, and he handles it with a masterly touch as well as good judgment and intelligent interpretation.
He combines intellectuality with bis
work, and thus is able to not only
please and charm the diversified
tastes of the Lyceum audience in his
own selections, hut he subjects his
skill and personality to Mr. Grilley's
work also, as an ideal accompanist
does to tbe solo voice or instrument.
Mr. Rogers' harp is a rare product
of the skilled harp mechanic, and
built with especially long Btrings, so
that he is able to do the etudes
and more serious numbers
with as intelligent interpretation as
a pianist. Along with this he plays
the whole gamut of the musical'emo-
tions. When he has finished, there
is little to be desired and a volume
to be written in the tbank book of
thc average auditor. Mr. Grilley as a
humorist and reciter is just as classic
in his work. His cyclone of humor
was just as artistic in its way as the
touches of pathos were delicious.
Like Ihe harpist's work, whatever he
did was marked with a linisb Unit
proved the real artist. '1 be combination of the two specialists, whioh,
before bearing, one would wager to
bea failure, proved to bo so perfectly interwoven that every part fit as
naturally as if il had been burn instead of having been designed and
worked out. Grilley looks some
like Eugene Field, of blessed mem
ory; and Field has no better interpreter. His stories were guod, well
told and never overdone, and bis at-
diencecomplimented bim by taking
them with the quickest appreciation, whether the humor was broad
or barely suggested. The whole entertainment was restful as well as ex-
hilerating. Tbe audience would vole
unanimously for a return engagement by the same combination next
year. One of tbe best features ol
this combination is that they aie
originators and not imitators. They
have composed the words and music
of some of the most popular skits on
the vaudeville stage today. 'The
Colored Lochinvar,' which was given
bo well by Mr. Grilley, and formerly
by Miss Ridgeway as one of her best
hits, is one of their own- compositions, as well as 'My Lady Marionette,' which Mr. Grilley gave with
success. One of the best things in
his repertoire is 'Good Evenin,' Mis-
tah Moon,' which was not given.
Another is, 'Everything Reminds ISun Job offloe'
Me So of Chicken.' " I —————

A Kicker Defined
The following is the latest definition of a kioker: There is a vast difference between the kicker and the
knocker, and they should not be confounded. One serves a useful purpose
and the other is the bane of everybody's life. The kicker is a man with
tt good liver, although not always, it
may be, with good judgment. The
knocker is a man with a bad liver and
no judgment at all. The kicker wants
to see things right, and kicks when
they are wrong; the knocker wonld be
dissatisfied if he had nothing to kick
about. If a kicker goes to his room in
a hotel and finds no soap, he calls a
boy and makes a kick, and gets it; if a
knocker finds no soap he bathes without it, and then tells it over the country that the people of that city don't
use soap. The kicker will tell you
when you displease him; the knocker
will tell somebody else. If the ollicers
do not suit, the kicker he tells them
wherein they are weak; the knocker
will go to another town and tell the
people there how he would run things
I if he were iu power. The kicker
thinks the town he lives in is the best
1 in the world, the knocker declares it's
the worst.    Knocking  hurts; kicking
| helps.   Everybody despises the knock-
I er; thinking men appreciate the kicker
and like to get in his wake, because
they know ho is not going to be imposed upon; the knocker encumbers
the path, but the kicker kicks aside
the bushes and stones for the next
person passing.
ing will be hold at Charlestown, W.
Va., on the 11th day of February, at
12 o'clock noon, for the election of

MINING NOTES
Patrick Hickey, who was of the
prospecting party which found a big
deposit of hematite in northern Ontario, left Greenwood for that section again last week. In about a
month's time thoy will be preparing
to go in again to their prospect before tho ice breaks.
J. E. McAllister, manager of the
British Columbin Copper coin puny,
left last Fr day for New York. The
shareholders of the company have
been notified that the annual  meet-
A. B. W. Hodges, local manager
ofthe Granby Consolidated, spent a
dny at the Boundary Falls smelter
last week. A story was published
in a Spokane pap«r lust week to the
effect tbat Oriinbv engineers arc examining the properties of the Dominion and British Columbia Copper companies, presumably with a
view of a consolidation of the three
interests. Whether there is any
foundation to the story or not, is
likely to remain an unsolved mystery for some time to con."
W. C. Thomas, mm nu r of the
Dominion Copper com pirn.. has not
yet heard \yhpii the mines of the
company will reopen, but is daily
