FRUIT INDUSTRY
Subject of an Address by M.
Burrell Before the Canadian Olub
This Province Will Become
Greatest fruit Producer
in World
The following address was delivered by Martin Burrell, M.P. for
Yale-Cariboo, before the Canadian
club, Ottawa, February 20, 1909:
Mr. Burrell said tbat there were
four great industries in British Columbia—mining, lumbering, agriculture with horticulture associated,
and fisheries. His own subject was
horticulture in British Columbia, a
subject in which he had a deep interest both from a commercial and
sentimental point of view. He quoted
Prof. Robertson's statement that life
was at its best where children bad
orchards to play in, and went on to
show tbe refining influences of fruit
growing upon society. He ran quickly over the history of fruit growing
in British Columbia, fr im the planting of the first fruit tree in 1847 by
Mr. James Douglas, chief factor of
the Hudson's Bay company, up to
the present tremendous development
with 75,000 acres in orchard, a great
deal of it under irrigation. The first
shipment to outside markets was
made in 1897, In 1902 tbe province
produced 2000 tons of fruit; in 1904
301)0 tons, valued at $250,000, and
in 1908 over $1,000,000, which fruit
was marketed not only in the northwest and Great Britain, but in far-
off Australia. Mr. Burrell said that
the development of the fruit industry in British Columbia was only at
its beginning, because, aside from
the fact that there was much ground
still to be planted, only 10 per cent
of tbe area thus far planted was now
in bearing. Tbe speaker explained
briefly tbe general features of the
climate of British Coluinbin.showing
tbat, while the presence of the coast
range, and, further inland, the Sei
kirk, tended to produce areas of
heavy precipitation through drawing
the moisture from the clouds driven
in from the Pacific, there mus between theBe ranges a great valley
country which might be culled semi
arid, and for the best utilization of
which irrigation was necessary. He
showeved that experience had proved
that fruit could be grown much
higher up on the mountain slopes
than had at first been supposed. His
own town of Grand Forks wan 1700
feet above sea level and was the centre of a splendid fruit raising district. He explained how the progress of tbe art of horticulture made
it possible to produre excellent results with far less water supply than
was ut first deemed mc ssary, so
ttial with a given expenditure on
irrigation works, fruit cultivation
might be extended over an immense
urea.
As to the character of the fruit
grown in the Okanagan vallty and
elsewhere in British Columbia, he
cvud that it was rather the habit of
some people in the east, as well as
in England, to say that, while British Columaia fruit had a pleasing
appearance, and while the orchard
yielded abundantly, the fruit lacked
quality. This he spoke of as a pleasing fiction. An Englishman, be said,
thought tbat an apple waB no good
unless it was so hard that when he
bit it brought tears to his eyes—
anything leas durable he called "mellow'' or "soft." He told of the
prize s won by British Columbia fruit
in competition with the very hest
that could be produced elsewhere.
At the great show of the Pacific
Coast Fruit Growers' association, at!
which the best growers of Oregon J
and Washington were  represented,
British Columbia took the 8100 gold
medal for the best five cases. And
at the first great national apple show,
held at Spokane last year, which
wis attended by buyers not only
from all parts of the United States,
but from Europe as well, one valley
in British Columbia, whicb took
there a small exhibit, won 85500 iu
prizces and took also the cup for the
best individual apple in color, texture and quality in the whole exhibition. At the Royal Horticultural
society's exhibition in London,
where the judges were the most
critical in the world, for six consecutive yeara British Columbia had
captured the gold medaf.
One great advantage enjoyed by
the fruit growers of British Columbia was the high percentage of No.
1 fruit produced by the orchards.
Mr. Burrell said tbat in a British
orchard not more than 10 per cent
of the fruit would average first-class.
In Ontario a liheral estimate would
be from 30 to 50 per cent. He believed he was absolutely safe in saying that the percentage in Baitish
Columbia would be not less than 70.
In his own orchard he had found as
high as 95 per cent grade No. 1 fruit.
This was due to the absence of fungous and insect pests. He recognized
the fact that these would probably
appeir with the later development
of the business of horticulture But
he was sure that the people of the
east would sympathize with British
Columbia in taking every means
possible to keep these pests out of
the province. Fruit growing in British Columbia had now reached wbat
might be called a real estate stage,
wben tbe careful operator would sell
to guileless people for $100 an acre
land tbat cost him $h. But, though
a multiplication ol cases of this kind
might cause many to believe that the
fruit growing of British Columbia
was not a sound business, yet they
should recognize that there was a
solid and honest development. As
this development continued, he believed, British Columbia would become one of he greater fruit producing countries of the world.

interests tu them all.
A great hockey game was to have
been played last Saturday night, but
owing to the fact that the prime promoter hitched the cart before the
horses, so to speak, the event will
go down into sporting history as
one of the things .that might have
happened. And thus some one's
chance of attaining crimson
glory and undying fame was
prematurely blasted. Mr. Promoter
hurriedly organized his two hockey
teams, composed of business men
who were amateur skaters a fortnight ago, but wbo by assiduously
practicing skating on whatever point
of the anatomy happened to come
in contact with the ice, bave since
blossomed out into profession,.!
hockeyists. Thc fourteen men,
versed in all the science of the game,
including prize fighting, marched
down to the rink,jubilantly brandishing their implements of warfare,
and wearing "their new uniforms,
which presented an enravishing picture of lovelines under the brilliant
electric lights, and brought forth
salvos of applause from the multitude of citizens that crowded the
line of march. The players marched
to the rink—then marched home
again. The man who had arranged
every other detail of the game, had
forgotten about the ice. As it was
occupied at the time, there was no
room for tbe players at that particu
lar time. Some of the players who
were lured to the rink are not yet
perfectly satisfied tbat the promoter
of the game is really aware that ice
is an essential element of hockey.
Speaking in strictly Berious strain,
however, a number of the would-be
players felt decidedly grieved at
what they called the arbitrary dictatorship of the management. They
say that the citizens hive dealt very
liberally with the rink, and that it
would have been a courteous act on
the part of the association to have
turned the building over to the players for an hour. Furthermore, they
claim it would have heen io the interest of rink people to have done
so, as it is events of this nature that
makes everybody take an interest in
terest in the sport, and is consequently an important factor in preparing
patrons for the rink. But with these
points The Sun is not concerned.
Another Brick Block
The plans for Jell Davis ct Co.'s
new brick block are now nearly
completed. Tho building will be
100x60 feet, two stories high, and
will occupy the sito of the present
s'ore, which is to be torn down.
During the course of construction
the firm will probably carry on its
business in a tent across the street
from its present premises. The
contract for the brick for the new
building has been let to Peter Vere-
gin.
Sale of Residential Property
H. A. Sheads, the real estate dealer, made two residential sales during
the present week—a house and lot
on Main street, opposite the Methodist church, to Mrs. Wm. Wallace,
and a residence on Third street,
south of Main street, to Stuart Carruthers.
Ranch Sold
The sale of tbe Coryell ranch, consisting of something like 900 acres,
was consummated last week. Peter
Veregin and associates making a
cash payment and taking possession of the property. Mr. Veregin
has also purchased, through McCallum k McArdle, 160 acres of mountain land west of the Newby ranch.
This land was acquired principally
for the purpose of running irrigation ditches over it to  the  Coryell
ranch. It is understood that the
new owners of the Coryell rauch
have contracted for all the unsold
nursery stock in the Riverside nurseries, and that a large number of
trees will be planted on the property
tbis spring.
Will Appeal
Tbe Sun has received the infdrma-
tion from an authentic source that
the case of The Eastern Townships
Bank vs. Vaughan, involving the
water right on the Covert estate, will
be appealed to the privy council,
the highest tribunal in the empire.
The case has been carried from
court to court during the past four
years. The supreme court of Canada recently handed down a decision
in favor of Vaughan.
Smelter Company Organized
The San Poil-Republic Smelting
company was organized in Republic

New Republic Ore
The value of the oar of ore from
thc New Republic mine shipped to

estimated at frnm tl 1,000 to ii*,-

Bonanza chute this week assayed
86570, 136,880 and $51,640, respectively. This ore is being moiled
out on canvass and the higher grade
sacked and stored in the vault of the
Ferry County State bank. This is
by far the richest ore ever found in
the Republic district. The nearest
approach to these values was two
cars of ore shipped by Patrick Clark,
which netted .$7500 each. The estimated value of the ore broken down
in the mine and at the Granby and
Tacoma smelters is $25,000. The
coinpany now employs fifty men. A
car of machinery for the mine is be-
j ing unloaded today. Two cars of
ore will be shipped next week. At
the annual meeting of thc stockholders Wednesday night the present
officers were re-elected.—Republic

and Grand Forks for the Boundary
trophy was played at the Phoenix
rink on Tuesday evening, and resulted in victory for tbe former team

of rooters, including a good proportion of ladies, accompanied tbe team
to Phoenix. The train left the Kettle Valley depot at about 7 o'clock,
but the run up the hill was tedious,
and the Grand Forks contingent did
not reach Pboenix|till 10:30. Phoenix
started in on the game strong and
quickly scored three goals before the
visitors had found the net. At half
time the score was 3-2 in favor of
Phoenix. The second half started

A Revival of Monte Cristo
The ofi'rring at the Grand Forks
opera house nn Thursday, March 18,
will be "Monte Cristo," the great
French drama by Alexandre Dumas.
This piece will be presented by Fred
eric Clarke and a company of sterling
players. The piece is spleupidly
staged and the company i.s well balanced. Mr. Clarke is a leading man
in his profession and holds an assured
position through the larger cities of
America. "Monte Cristo'1 is the
strangely thrilling story of two lovers'
turbulent life in France during the
10th century, at a time when romance
was in the atmosphere, and heroic
deeds were commonplace. Dumas'
great play will be well staged, and the
company has been carefully selected.
Mr. Willis takes great pleasure in
offering this play to the western Canadian theatre   Koers, and   feels   they
11 appreciate his efforts in this
channing production of ''Monte
Cristo." Mr. Clarke as the Count
will hold the audience spellbound by
his artistic portrayal of this difficult
role.     Don't forget the date. JOHN   D. SPENCE

Martin Burrell knows about as
much about the Grand Forks post-
office site as the people of the 16th
century knew about wireless telegraphy. '
The Grand Forks Hockey club
has won the Boundary trophy by
good, clean, nggresBive and sportsman-like playing, and there appears
to be a growing inclination in the
community that some sort of a testimonial should be tendered the
players by the citizens fur the laurels
tbey have brought to the city. We
are not certain us to form this testimonial should take, whether a banquet or a presentation of ,>o;ne kind
of trophy. We merely throw out
the suggestion; and if other people
who favor this idea, will get together
and discuss the matter, suine con
crete plan could undoubtedly be
evolved.
The Sun has neither tbe intention
nor the inclination to resort tn that
circus-down method of solici'.i ig ad
vertising which appears to he rampant in this neighborhood at present. A few words regarding the
desirability of this pa] er as un advertising medium may be apropos,
however. The circulation of The
Sun is as large ns that of any other
paper published in this section,
and it is incteasing more rapidly
tiiun is the circulation of its neigh
bors. There are many reasons for
this rapid increase. The Sun prints
more local news, in a compact, entertaining and readable form, than
any of its competitors, and at one-
half the subscription price; charged
by the other papers; its selected
miscellany is either Instructive or
entertaining; its lirst page presents
the appearance of a newspaper, and
not of nn advertising dodger; it has
stability—it does not experiment
with amateurs, like some of its eon-
ten) pories, with every change of the
moon; it is issued at the the end of
the week, and prints all the news of
that week; and Inst, but not least, it
has opinions of its own, and is not
afraid to express tbem. Businessmen
who use our columns to advertise
their wares find it profitable, and
there is no reason why those who
have not yet tried them should not
obtain equally satisfactory results.
The Sun's renders, whicli comprise
most the residents of the valley—
pioneers nnd newcomers—can only
be reached through the columns of
The Sun.
NEWS OF THE CITY
The Sun is in a position to stale
positively thai the deed len- the post-
office site in this city has been taken

property will be paid over as soon as
the title is found to be clear. The
site purchased comprises the entire
triangular block at the head of
Bridge street, bounded by Main,

excellent performance of that st.ind-

PERSIAN PHILOSOPHY
[f'HOM THE OULISTAN OP Sa'dI.]
If a worthless fellow, because of his
wealth, treats a learned man with insolence, reckon him an ass.
The money of the miser is coining
out of the earth when he is himself
going into it.
Show thy generosity, but make it
not obligatory, that the benefit may
redound to thee.
The ignorant, when beaten by their
antagonist in fair argument, shake
the chain of rancor.
Riches are intended for the comfort of life, and not life for the purpose of hoarding riches.
Were every drop of dew to turn
into a pearl, in the market pearls
would be as common as shells.
Wherever the tree of generosity
strikes root it sends forth its boughs,
vnd they shoot above the skies.
Whoever ventures his life unon an
unproductive hazard gains nothing but
the risk, und loses his own stake.
Whoever prostitutes his temperance, piety, and science, gathers his
harvest into a heap and sets fire to  it.
That man is fortunate who spends
and gives away, and that man unfortunate who dies and leaves behind.
One man hoards a treasure with
pain and tribulation; another comes
and spends it with tribulation and
pain.
Pray for that good-for-nothing man
who did nothing, for he passed his
life in hoarding riches, and did n_
spend them.
He who has in both his hands such
dates as he can relish, will not think
of throwing stones at the bunches of
dates on the trees.
The eye of the greedy is not to be
filled with worldly goods, any more
than a well can be rebanished from
the dew of night.
If desirous that you shouldst benefit by the wealth of this world, be
generous with thy fellow-creatures, as
God has been generous with thee.
Whoever is inferior to others in
humanity, and is their superior in
opulence, though in appearance he is
rich, yet in reality he is a beggar.
The virtue of temperance remains
nof with a state of being famished:
and bankrupt oircuuistances will
snatch the rein from the hand of abstemiousness.
A kingdom is embellished by the
wise, and religion rendered illustrious
by the pious. Kings stand more in
need of the company of the intelligent, than the intelligent do of the
company of kings.
Take heed, and retreat not from the
orator's attack, for nothing is left him
but metaphor and hyperbole. Wield
thy polemics and la* citations, for
the wordy rhetorician makes a show
of arms over his gate, but he has not
a soldier within his fort.
O poor man! complain not of the
revolutions of fortune, for gloomy
might be thy lot wert thou to die iu
such sentimeuis. And now, 0 rich
man! that thy hunil and heart administer to thy pleasure, spend and
give away, that thou mayest enjoy
this world and the next.
However much thou art rend in
theory, if thou hast no practice thou
art ignorant; he is neither a sage
philosopher nor an acute divine, hut a
neast of burden with a load of hooks.
How can that brainless head know or
comprehend whether he carriea "ii his
hack a library or a bundle   of  fagots?
There is no rose without its thorn;
intoxication from wine is followed by
a cjualm; the hidden treasure hus its
guardian dragon; where the imperial
pearl is found there swims the man-
devouring shark; the honey of Worldly
enjoyment has the sting of death in
its rear; and between us and the
felicity of paradise stands a frightful
demon, namely, sutan.

Monte Oristo Next Week
That tremendous drama of the Napoleonic period, "Monte Cristo," will
be presented at the Grand Forks opera
house on Thursday, March 18th, with
Frederic Clarke as the count, sup
poited by an excellent company. The
play is under the direction of E. Willis, and no expense has been spared to
make the production complete in every
detail. This beautiful story of Alexandre Dumas is splendidly staged,
and the cast is chosen with an eye to
make the production the best that has
ever been through Canada. It is perhaps the most expensive production
that has ever been through this territory. The costumes are in keeping
with this Napoleonic period, and
strict attention is given to every detail. No one should miss this rare
dramatic treat. Seats on sale at the
usuai place.

Life of a Prairie Settler by an Englishman gives an insight into conditions in the great West. The March
number is of course Irish in tone and
contains in addition to two of Thomas
Moore's Irish melodies, an historical
reference to St. Patrick, Ireland's patron saint. There is the usual amount
of stc.ry matter, with interesting departments of Fashions, Fancy Work,

interesting coin tricks are explained.

ounces.
These harmless ingredients can be
btained from our home druggists,
nd are easily  mixed by shaking
hem well in a bottle.   Relief is generally felt from the first few doses.
This prescription forces the clogged
up, inactive kidneys to filter and
strain from the blood the poisonous
waste matter and uric acid, which
causes rheumatism.
As rheumatism is not only the
most painful and torturous disease,
but dangerous to life, thiB simple
recipe will no doubt be greatly valued by many sufferers here at home,
who should at once prepare the mixture to get this relief.
It is said that a person who would
take this prescription regularly, a
dose or two daily, or even a few
times a week, would never have serious kidney or urinary disorders or
rheumatism.
Cut this out aud preserve it. Good
rheumatism prescriptions which
really relieve are scarce, indeed, and
when you need it, you want it
badly. ,
