March 27.���������An imperial ukase promulgating the Ze'm-  stvo bill, article S7, of the fundamental laws has been issued with tlie Emperor's acquiescence. M. Stolypin's  assumption of what are virtually dictatorial functions has: struck the politicians with .amazement, and has  produced what'is regarded as a grave  constitutional '.crisis',; The residence  of Durpiiovo, the --deposed ex-uiiuister  of the interior, has become the centre  of a political revolt,, in which it...is  sought to unite both ��������� chambers and  nearly all parties ,with the government.  THE PROPHECY CAME TRUE  New Westminster, Marcil 2.9���������Herbert Victor Baker, an hotel clerk, in  North Vancouver, appeared in the city  Police. Court this morning, charged by  the attorney-general's department  with alleged violation of the marriage  act in New Westminster hi marrying:'  his deceased brother's wife. Provincial  Constable Wilkie made the charge  acting, under instructions from Victoria. 'The charge sheet in court was  amended to read that by making the  necessary affidavit that he knew of "no"  impediment to the celebration of the  marriage, the accused committed perjury."  Magistrate Edmonds held a preliminary investigation, and remitted the  matter tfo a higher court to decide the  legal point.  From the evidence adduced it appeared that Baker drew the analogy  that if marriage with his deceased  wife's sister was legal, marriage with  his deceased brother's widow was  likewise,.  Mr. W.'H. Bole, K.C., for the crown  produced '. a table of affinities, compiled in the reign of Henry VIII., which  he contended was applicable to the  marriage- laws of Canada,- except as  amended by Dominion statutes. Insofar as there was no mention of a  deceased brother's wife, the learned  counsel advanced the theory that'marriage between parties within these degrees of affinity was prohibited.  CANADA'S BANK FAILURES  Some   Statistics   Which  Go   To   Show  That Present System of Inspection  is Faulty  Bank failures have been frequent  enough of late in Canada. The statistics as -furnished by Dr. Edwards, the  Conservative member for Froiitenac,  are somewhat startling. In his speech  in the House on Thursday last he'said:  "From  1880  to  1900  there, were 48 ,  chartered banks established in Canada  and of that number 12 or 2.5 per cent,  failed,  and  others  only saved themselves  from failure  by amalgamation;  in the neighborhood of 80 per cent, of  all the  banks which  have been  established  since 1880 have failed  undone  half of  these  failures  have  occn-:   -i  since 1896 during the  time the pr.     ..\  Finance Minister, has. held office. ..- ...   -  ly,   Sir, it  is a sorry   commentary  our  banking  system and on this go. -  eminent,   that the   percentage of fail  ures of chartered bank in the Dominion of Canada   has been  greater since  this administration came  to power in  18067 and: under the care of the present  minister of Finance, than in any other  country  in the world.    Mr.  H. C. Mc-  Lt-od.. former general  manager of the  Bank of Nova Scotia, commenting on  this deplorable state of affairs, used  these words:  "Most, if not all the above mentioned failures were fraudulent, and it is  now plainly evident that a few hours  examination by a skilled banker would  have disclosed ah insolvent condition  in any one of these banks years before  it collapsed."  PRESENTATION AND   ADDRESS  NOTICE  The New-Advertiser in its "Twenty  Years Ago" items has the following:  "Mr. W. J. Bowser, L.L.B., a barrister of New Brunswick, has just arrived in this city and. will practice  here. He has taken offices for that  purpose in the Turner block on Cordova street. Mr. Bowser is a graduate  of Dalhousie University, Nova Scotia,  and will be sure to succeed in his profession."  The above is being noted in various  papers and.in some cases lessons deduced therefrom. All there is to it is  simply that the Attorney-General had  the brains to make good and he made  good. But what suffering is in store  for the good people of this province if  other youths arriving from the eastern provinces mistaking brass for  brains imagine that they too. must  turn the trick. When a youth arrives  with his pocket" lined with clippings  from country papers showing addresses of farewell from such and such debating society in which the bearer is  marked out to be the intellectual  Moses who is to lead the poor British  Columbians out of Egyptian darkness  and the youth is sufficiently blinded  with self-conceit to believe it all, then  there is tribulation ahead both for the  youth and for the public who for their  own protection must do a heap of  "sitting on".  Princeton, B. 0. March 27th 1911  Dear Mr. Mills;  On this the eve of your departure,  we wish to express to you our thorough  appreciation of your earnest work  whilst occupying the pulpit of the  Princeton Presbyterian church here,  and also to express the hope that your  studies, which you are now about to  resume may terminate satisfactorily  so that your return to the pulpit may  be accomplished with the least delay.  While feeling extreme, regret at  your departure at the present moment  we know that the necessities of your  high calling lender the step necessary.  You can rest assured that your  career through college and afterwards  will always remain a matter of deep  interest to us,' and every success you  may attain be a 'matter of special  satisfaction to your many friends here  in Princeton.  We ask your acceptance of this little  gift,, whic.i accompanies this, as a  mark of our special personal appreciation, and trust yon will use it in anyway that you find most useful to yourself.  With renewed good wishes for your  every success, we are  Hugh Huxtisk  Gordon Murdoch  W. C. McDoug.vt.i.  .1. A. Lujisdkx  Managers.  COAL   MINERS' STRIKE  BEGUN  Over 5000 Quit Work in Crowsnest Mines  On April 1st.  Fernie, B.

HF.N-..Y STANGKR  10-10 Chns de H. Green, agent.  Dated March 3th, 1011  Last week the Gazette made reference to the death of Thomas Hahy, an  old-time placer miner on Rock Creek.  Since then more details have come to  hand which show that the manner of  his ending w.-i.s typical of tlie man ���������  game to the last. On Friday the Kith  ult he had gone over to Bridosville  tihout 7 or 8 miles distant for supplies  and bought about��������� 50 lbs. worth which  lie started in pack home although he  was a man of SO years. On his way  back he called at Jimmy Copland's  cal.iin and left there about five o'clock,  that being the last time he was seen  ���������dive. On Sunday morning he was  found by Andy Donahue, his nearest  neighbor who is another of the old  timers living farther down the north  fork. He was found about, (i foot from  the cabin door with the pack beside  him and the cabin door still locked  with the key on the outside. Heart  failure was evidently the cause of  death for ho hail complained to a-  friend of a couple of had spells he had  during the winter.  Edmonton   Wants   Ethiopian   in   Small  Doses Only.  The arrival of the colored delegation  from the states, together with their  coiispicuousness on the streets of Edmonton stirred up hitter feeling. Dr.  Ely Sunge wrote a strong letter to the  papers protesting against the admission of the negroes into   the province.  Premier Sifton stated that there  was nothing in the provincial statutes  to keep the negroes out. The board of  trade is committed to a policy rigidly  agniust the immigration of the negro.  They have left for Athabasca Landing, in which vicinity they will take  up their future homes.  It was with no little surprise that it  was learned on Monday of the death  of W. T. Atherton which took place  at the Hotel Similkaineen during the  noon hour. He had been about the  streets for a week or two previous and  had not even taken to his bed the day  before. He seemed to have made a  quick recovery from the amputation  of his feet caused by freezing last winter. Deceased came to Hedley in the  fall of 1901 when the Similkameen  hotel was first opened up. he having  an interest in the first lease. Some  time previous he had been in the hotel  business in Penticton. He first came  to the province during the building of  the ('. P. It. His wife predeceased  him several years before and his  daughter died some four years ago.  He loaves to mourn his loss one son  who is in the Ci. N.

A  dose or two of that kind is needed in  Hedley. Here, the defiance of the  law has been shameful in the matter  of interdicted men securing liquor but  no prosecutions seem to follow. If the  Attorney-Gonei-al's department wants  the new liquor law to have the effect  it was .intended t<> have and the law  respected as it should bo it would pay  to have a stranger in plain clothes  sent in hero to do sonic detective work  and have a. few of those bottle artists  gathered in. Also the proper time to  put a. man on the interdicted list is before he has gone through his pile and  not after. The supplying of liquor to  drunken men is also a crying shame  and although it is forbidden by law it  goes on nevertheless.  Good Friday a week from to-morrow. After that conies Easter milliner v.

Tho seventy-fifth  annual   report of  the above bank is to hand   and  shows  this solid  old  institution   to  bo  in  a  healthy  state.      Last   year    the    net  profits      after      deducting       current  charges and   providing   for  bad  and  doubtful debts, amounted  to $491,S30.  II.    In   October   last  then-   was  paid  out    for   dividend   $140,000.00  whicli  with bonuses equalled'7  per  cent  for  the   year  and   there   is   available  for  April dividend   and   bonus,  a  balance  of $278,378.90.    A strong foa tin e about  this   bunk  and one which should command more than ordinary attention at  tlie    present    tune    in     view   of   the  . recent  discussion on   the    subject    of  banking   in   the    Canadian   House   of  Commons   in    connection    with    the  defunct Farmers'  Bank, is   its   audit.  In.this respect  the   Bank   of B. N. A.  shares with thi!  Bank of  Nova. Scotia  the honor of being one ol the only two  banks in Canada, which  have an independent audit apart  from   tho   ordinary  bank   inspection   of  branches   by  inspectors of the bank itself  on behaif  of its directors.    In the Bank of B. N.  A. it is not the directors who appoint  the auditor  but the shareholders, and  this bank together with  the  Bank   of  Nova Scotia is ready for governmental   audit   and  they   would  welcome  such  a change.     The significance  of  this will be better  understood  in connection with an item in   another column   of  this   issue which   deals  with  an incident in the Canadian House  of  Commons which   occurred  a few days  ago when the affairs  of  the   unfortunate Farmer's Bank  wore  up  for discussion.     With   a   paid-up  capital   of  $4,800.0(50.(50, a reserve of $2,052,333.33  and total assets  of over $50,000,000.00  and  a  sound  audit   this  bank   offers  special attractions to dedositors.  mai riage su h a decision would pracl i-  cally (s<������ far as this province is concerned) take the place of.a. separate "deceased hi other's widow" bill by the.  Dominion government. Owing to  clerical domination of the. Dominion  representation fi om Quebec it was no  easy matter to secure the passage, of the  "deceased wife's sister" bill and its the  Quebec representation is stronger -now'  than it was then it might be more  difficult now to got through such a  piece of legislation and thus the plan  of putting, it up to the higher courts  will.be the simpler way to attain the  object in view so far as this province  is concerned. Of course it will be  billions on the poor beggar who is  made the scapegoat and'it'would be  only fair that he should be reimbursed  for any financial loss he may sustain  bv reason of it.

Mr. Mills, B. A., the former student  in charge, went out on Tuesday of last  week to enter "Westminster .hall in  Vancouver.  Mr. Aeneas Marsel gave a dance at  the Olalla schoolhouse on Friday hist;  between -10 and 50 guests were present,  every house, in the district being well  represented and in addition many  friends from Keremeos were in evidence. It was one of the most enjoyable evenings ever spent here. Dancing continued until 5 a. in. A most  excellent supper was ably served by  Mis. Joe and Miss Betsy Maisel.  The number of patients at the hospital has been increasing so much of-late'  that the Board have found it necessary to obtain an assistant nurse and  -steps have already been taken to obtain one. The Board appreciates very  highly the work of the new matron,  Mrs. Miller, whose careful and skilful  management of the institution has  aided them very materially in the  tiisk of making ends meet.  The increasing water supply which  Wiis beginning to make itself felt in  the more economical running of the  plant around the mill and power house  of the Hedley Gold Mining Co. received a check with the cool wave which  struck here at the end of the week.  Had the supply kept on increasing as  it had been doing for ten days previous, the pump gang at the lake  could have been recalled before now,  but jus it is they are still keeping the  pumps going.  Mrs. J. A. Brown is working hard  in preparation for her concert which  is to take place in l<Yatcrnify hall,  Hedley on Friday 28th, inst.

It is her intention to have to the concert begin at S o'clock sharp so that  the hour for closing will not he thrown  too lute. This will be specially appreciated, by those who may come in from  a, distance and not want to remain  over.

Marvellous Mental and his company  drew a small house on Monday even-,  ing. This fact cannot be attributed in  anyway to the quality of the entertainment put on but to the simple reason that people, here are so pro-occupied with their spring work that'there  is no demand for concerts or entertainments of any kind.  Mr. Mills, who has been in charge of  the Presbyterian Mission at Princeton  and is now leaving to resume his studies, was a visitor in Keremeos for a  couple of days during the week. So  much was Mr. Mills work appreciated  in the upper valley that on his departure he was presented with a purse of  %'Xy oyer and above his full allowance  of salary.  C. A. McDonald of the "B.C." Fruit-  land Company is back in the valley  and, incidentally, might be noted the  presence of several land seekers.  Among these are Jens Hagan. of Spokane and Donald McEdw arils, formerly of Wenatchee and now of Medford,  Ore. Mac's presence here always suggests something doing in the real estate line and the bringing in of settlers, so much desired in our valley.  The shipment of spring stock from  Biverside nurseries at Grand Forks  for the Keremeos district arrived on  Saturday. Everybody here has favored the Riverside nursery with a liberal  order and the total must have aggregated about ()000 trees. The ground is  in excellent shape and no time is being  lost in getting tin- trees in place. The  stock was in the pink of condition  and no doubt will but further increase  the favor in which the Grand Forks  f-tock is- held by growers here.  <*"C>-���������"<������-*"'������������- -<  APPEARANCES COUNT  en pi-  What Interest  will you  draw on your personal  tal this spring-?

The inference contained in this may be quite  right but the premise is undoubtedly  wrong. It will not be even competition. We give a concrete example:  Last week oneof our fruit ranchers  got in some- machinery and fixtures  which he required in his business, the  value of which was $66. On this he  had to pay $19.18 duty, so that to say  nothing of the higher freight hill, his  machinery cost liiui nearlv one-third  more than it would his neighbor across  the line. Much might be said in favor  of free trade, all arouu.d. (though we  are not in sympathy with even that)  but there is no justice or equity in the  reciprocity measure now before the  countrv.

Selection of soil and location suitable  for an orchard, preparing for planting  how tb plant, the  best varieties, cultivation  after planting and other subjects of like nature are dealt with by  competent authorities in this number.  Articles also appear dealing with the.  subjects  of   spraying,  fertilizing,   renewing  old orchards and other matters which will prove of interest to the  practical   fruit grower at this season.  A report of the deputation of the fruit  and vegetable growers  who waited on  the Government recently in regard to  the proposed tariff changes is given in  this number  by a staff representative  who accompanied this deputation. An  illustration  showing  the  members of  this deputation  on   the   steps of the  .Parliament   Buildings,   Ottawa,   also  appears.  Amateur flower growers and gardeners can secure many useful suggestions from this number. Articles appear dealing with tlie care of dahlias,  cannas and climbing roses. "Intensive  gardening on a, small lot" gives the  experience of the writer in the management of a. small vegetable garden,  describing the preparation of tlie soil,  fertilization of the soil and planting.  "What to grow and bow to grow it"  explains in detail the making and  management of a hotbed.  The issue is well illustrated throughout, the illustrations adding greatly  to the educational value of the articles. Persons wishing to subscribe  for the Canadian Horticulturist may  do so through this office. The special  clubbing of the Hedlev Gazette and  The Canadir,n Horticulturist is $2.10.  if you wish to see a sample copy of  The Canadian Horticulturist you may  secure one from the publisher's.
