HERRING & WINKLER, Proprietors  The Premier opened the.theball in  a quiet and temperate, btitconviheing,  speech of   mi   hour's   duration.      He  went fully into the question of Better  Terms for the province of British Col-  lunihi.-i,   relatinir   the   steps  taken  by.  | him as the��������� representative of the peo-  i pie of this proA-ince at the Conference  j of Premiers at Ottawa, ami giA-ing.his  ! reasons for his Avithdra\val from the  j deliberations of that body, after it had  j become evident that it was useless to  I "hope, for any  measure of fair treatment for British Columbia.     The Premier handled   his   important subject  |    A meeting of -this fruit growers  was  held in Keremeos on the afternoon of  Saturday,   March   28rd.       Rev.   Mr.  Cameron   occupied     the    chair..   Mr.  Richter, the president of  the association,   gave  an   address /detailing his  difficulties    in   connection    Avith    his  first attempt to start   an   orchard an  the   Similkameen   \-alley   years   ago.  The place is 'now "owned and occupied  by Mrs. 15. Loavk and family. * He got  his first   trees   fi-oin New Westminister, and had  to; pack  them  in with  horses from Hope.    Being anxious to  get fruit at as early a date 'as was possible, he ordered four  year  old  trees  from eight to ten feet high;   Think of;  packing such cumbersome things such  a  long distance.     The first night in'  bringing the trees home some of the  horses broke loose and whether or not  that thev had "horse sense"'enough to  know that they were carrying a lot'-of  useless Avood, or horse feed was scarce,  they ate nearly all  the  limbs off the  trees.  In due course they arri\'ecl home  and planted the remnants of the  trees  which were   a   sorry   looking   sight.  When the trees began to  grow Mr. R.  began  to   congratulate himself   that  his troubles were all en'er, but not so.  EA-ery animal on the place  seemed  to  have <-t special spite at these  trees.    If  any of the horses or cattle got  near,  they iimiriably made a  clash at the  trees, eating all they Avanted and then  breaking denvn all  they could.    Even  the hogs when they got. into the ��������� Orchard amused .themserves  by tearing  off a lithe bark they  could from  the  trunks'of the trees; yet the trees made  HALO OTA,  IIIYU CII1C0MIX  Similkameen's District Vote Not Exceeded by That of Any Other Rural  Constituency ��������� Where the Silvery  Tones Come In ��������������������������� Budget Brought  Down���������Premier.Goes to London.  ably and well: the effect of the power- j a, gol}l\ growth the first season.

C.  ful arguments he; adduced in faA'or of  his resolution and in support of Better  Terms being evident when the leader  of the Opposition, Mr. J. A. Macdon-  ald, of Roesland, rose to reply.  As previously outlined in this correspondence, Mr. Macdonalcl was on the  horns of a dilemma,-and at a, loss to  find his way out of the difficulty into  which his own political duplicity had  led him.  He produced a resolution of his own,  which, for practical purposes, coilsist-s  of two parts.      The first clause���������possibly interesting, even soothing,  to  Sir.  Wilfrid   Laurier,   but haying no con--  ccivable  bearing  on  tlit*  question  of  British    Columbia's   right   to   better  terms���������was  that   the.   House  had   no  confidence   ill   the   Hon.   Richard   McBride.    Tlie second clause, presumably  i by way of condemning the first,  en-  ;dorsed   the   Hon.   Richard   Mcllride's  action  at  the  conference of premiers  . by reiterating his  .statement made on  ; that occasion,   to the effect  that  one  ��������� hundred   thousand  dollars a year for  ; ten   years  was  not enough for British  ! Columbia.  '    Taken  altogether,   it was a most re-'  niai-kable   resolution   to  offer   to   the  House, as an  amendment;    and Mr.  ��������� .Macdonald seemed  to have some dim  i ....  | consciousness ot the tact, tor he labor*  ed over it for an houi%  Avith  the. only  next spring as Mr.  Richter  was  pass-  sing through the orchard he noticed a.  couple of trees had toppled  over,  and j , . ,  1 ...       ..

The member for Similkaineciii /. is  wearing a happy face at present. This  is accounted for from the fact that the  estimates have been-.'.brought down to  the House. As compared with other  constituencies certainly Similkameen  should be satisfied. But L. W. Shatford, always .alive to the interests of  his own riding, contends that he should  have more. He "may therefore he expected to put up a hard fight against  any reductions as far as his district is  concerned. Only one other constituency has received the same appropriation for roads, &c.,; as Similkameen.  This is Price Ellison's .'riding of Okanagan. : Mr. Ellison's long experience in  these matters: has made.him a master  in the .art of glutting good; appropriations,, but he '���������e'ven-'has a kickepiniiig-  on the member for Similkainecufor he  points tci'/the fact that Mr. Shatford  has succeeded in the general estimates  in securing \'arious special grants fluids district which conies nearly equalling the general appropriation.  The general appropriation for public  Avorks in. Similkameen is $25,000. In  addition to that, there is a grant for  the Twenty^niile. creek road of $10,000.  and assistance to the Bear creek road  of $2,000. OA'er and above this from  the grant, of $120,800 for bridge,*  throughout the province Mr. Shatford  expects to get a fair share.  Some of the other niemliers are disposed to regard Mr. Shatford's grants  with envy, but the member for Shnil-  kameen points to the fact that it is by  far the most important portion of the  province at the present time;���������the appropriations show that he has convinced'-the GoA'ernment of-this fact.

M.Ct  hold of the top he could  lift it  right  out of the ground.   Yet notwithstanding all those troubles  the  major part  of the trees grew well and for a great  many years have produced.large crops  of excellent fruit.     Mrs. Lowe's Baldwin apples have earned a A-ery em-iahle  reputation, many people believing that  they   cannot   be   excelled   elsewhere;  Mr.   Richter's next  attempt   was on  what is known as the  Lower Ranch,  in Richter's pass,  where Mr. and Mrs.  Kdwar'd Richter now live.    Here  his  great trouble  lay in   the  unfavorable;  predictions   of   his   friends,   who   all  seemed determined to make Mr. Richter believe that he was only   throwing  time anil money away planting an ore-hard   on   such .'��������� gravelly   and   stony  ground.   "But in spite  of all the '��������� blue  ruin"  as seen   by his  friends,   lie kept |  right on.    The o'rehard,   then planted,  although on   very stony ground,   has I  been a'great success and is   producing!  cA'ery   year an  abundance of very line ;  fruit", being especially Avell colored, the;  reason   for  the high  coloring in   Mr.  Richter's  opinion   being so much lime  in the soil.

Although this Avas  Mr. Richter's first appearance before a  public audience, he. made.a Airry interesting and  entertaining address,  and  everybody Avas pleased.

They will not be able; to say that the  public works and the roads arc; being  starved hoAveA'er as in past years, the  Government   haA'ing   made   generous  appropriations this year.  :  The   budget  speech of   Hon. R. G.  Tatlow was a brief one this year.    He  however gave ample evidence that the  GoA'ernment was prepared to grapple  with great questions affecting the Avel-  fare of the province  in a business like  way.    The fact   that $2T>,000 was set  aside for fighting   forest   fires   was   a  proof that the; Government was  keenly alive to the importance  of preserving for economic uses the vast   timber  resources of B. C.    Quoting from statistics submitted at the Forestry  Convention he  showed that there  was estimated   to   be  about   2tS0,(KK)   square  miles of timber in   B. C.     Since   Confederation it was estimated   that not  more than .'W0 square miles   had  been  cut.    The great destruction of the forests was therefore  to   be;   feared  fiom  fires and not from commercial cutting.  The public debt   had   been reduced  by $2W5,fv5H.    With  an  estimated re-  Aenue of $8,286,470,   the .Minister   of  The V. V. & E. rails are constantly  making their way up the Similkameen  but the track-laying and ballasting  gangs are the only forces at work.  At the end of last week a Gazette  representative took a trip to Night-  hawk, which has become, the temporary headquarters of the V.Y". A:E sleei  gang, although the end of the track  was variously stated to be. from six to  eight miles further on towards Hedley.  To correct a misapprehension, it may  he explained that the wagon road to  NighthaAvk does not follow the river,  but cuts across the; foot-hills through  apportion of boundary .pass,- while the  railway folloAviug the friA-er makes an  immense horseshoe detour around  high mountains and is not-yisible from  the Avagoii road at any ��������� -point between  'NighthaAA'k and the hill above; Moyes*.  Tliiis a distance Of five/miles by wagon  road requires a distance of about thir-  ���������teen miles of railway track to reach a  point opposite Moves' on the Similkameen river.  The track-layer on Saturday night.  0th inst., had reached' the. Mountain  Sheep mineral claim. Avhich Frank  Richter, who knows that countrv perhaps better than any man in the-district on either side of the line, estimates  it to be about 1 8-1 miles below the  boundary line. At Nighthawk it av������is  claimed that the track-layers' were  making a mile a day, and if this be so  they should therefore reach the boundary line on Monday night. At the  boundary a. station to be known as  Chepaco Av-ill be located, and there the  yawttracks\Avould have to be put in to  accommodate the Canadian steel Avith  Avhich all the track on   this side of the  line is to  be. laid, before any further  progress northward is made;.  From-,"Chepac<������ there is clear sailing  until the bridge at Armstrong's is  reached, and here the most serious  hold-up.will occur, for, in addition to  the bridge spans, a long trestle on piles  Avill have to be; constructed, making a  Avooden structure said to be about 1000  feet long. On Friday last, Mr. L. M.  Hale, C. 13., and his assistant, E. Wiseman, began work on this bridge, pegging out the ground for the piles and  abutments. This bridge is practically  the crux of the Avhole situation so fai  as the time required for completion of  the track into Keremeos is concerned.  Estimation of the time required to  build the bridge is rendered difficult  because'of one uncertain factor, and  that is the behavior of the Similkameen river, and those who know it  best are least disposed to answer for  Avhat it will do. Should the high Avat-  er hold off long enough to enable them  to complete; the bridge all may yet be  well. Fortunately there will be no  occasion to wait for material to put in  the spans, for this is said to be already  in the yards at Oroville, but not a pile  of this has yet been dm'en and even  the pile timber has to be> brought in by  rail.

C. for better terms upon the Imperial authorities Avhen the amendment  to the B. N. A. Act proposed by Sir  Wilfrid Laurier comes up. The Oppo-.  sitiou though undoubtedly taken by  surprise when they learned that he  was to take; this course never offered ii  single objection to or criticism of tlie  decision. After the strenuous fight  which the premier put up at Ottawa,  it is generally conceded that the proper thing for him to do is to proceed  to London and show that B. C. is determined in this matter.  In order to allow him to get away  early this Aveek, the; business of the  session will be pushed foi-Avard as  quickly iis possible.

Danger of further labor trouble in  the Alberta, coal fields is imminent. It  was most unfortunate that the operators represented by G. G. S. Lindsay  showed their hand for a reduction of  the wage scale below that which was  made the basis of the agreement of  1901.
