The ��������� Coal Mines Regulation Act  which has been one of the most important measures brought up this session came in for a great deal of discussion. It is.generally admitted to  have been one ot the most important  enactment in the interests , of labor-  that stands to the credit of any- legislature in the Dominion.  McKenzie. of Dewdney, introduced  a bill to make difficult tlie sale of  cocaine and other habit-forming drugs.  The Socialist leader declared that it  was out of order as it tended to restrict trade and commerce which pertained only to the Dominion House:  The debate on Hay ward's resolution,  opposing reciprocity brought out arr  emphatic condemnation of the move-  merit from the Minister of Finance  arid gave the House generally an opportunity of showing their opposition  to the agreement. -'.������������������'������������������. -  The estimates tabled by the Minister of Finance showed an increase of  about three millions over the expenditure of last year, In round numbers  the estimated revenue was placed at  nine millions and the estimated expenditure at twelve millions. This  dilference was explained by him to  mean not necessarily a deficit for the  year. Last year too the revenue had  exceeded the estimate by a couple of  millions while the estimated expenditure had not been reached and thus  there had been no deficit.  KETTLE VALLEY PROGRESS  The middle of July is expected to  see the completion of at least 60 miles  of the 280-niile gap between Merritt  and Midway on the Kettle Valley-  Railway. Although the contracting  forces of Macdonell. Gzowski <& Company at the Merritt end of the railway  have ceased track-laying after having  done ten miles on the first 30-iuile contract out of that town, steel work will  be resumed within a month or two  after the remainder of the distance  covered by the firm's contract has  been graded.  It was stated hero today that the  report from Merritt thatMacDonnell,  Gzowski <.V: Company had secured the  contract for the second thirty miles  southeastward from Merritt, was  hardly likely to lie strictly correct, as  it was not expected that any contract  for this portion would be awarded  until the first section is about three-  fourths conipleted.  At the Midway end of the line. L.  M. Rice i*c Company, of Seattle, holding another 30-mile contract, have  steel laid for fifteen miles and will  have the grading for the rest of the  distance done witlva a month or two,  after which the tracks will be put  down for the second 15-mile stretch.  1't is said that this company will be  given another contract of equal length  this season so that it is anticipated  that by the middle of the summer  sixty miles of the entire distance of  200 miles will be conipleted. with another 00 miles under construction.  The fruitgrowers of this district  showed--.their.'appreciation of the efforts of the Provincial Department of  Horticulture's efforts to promote the  fruitgrowing industry of the province  by attending, almost to a man, the  series of meetings Held here last week.  The speakers proved themselves  thorough masters of the subjects assigned to each aird their method of encouraging the asking of questions during the progress of the lectures brought  out much information on details of  local" interest which otherwise might  have been overlooked.  We shall not attempt to report at-  length all the lectures. Space would  not permit and the fact that nearly  every individual in the district, at all  interested in the matter, was present  would render it quite unnecessary. A  recapitulation, however, of what impressed us as some of the most useful  suggestions, might not be out of order  and might serve to rivet them in the  minds of our readers. Many of the  recommendations, if not all, to which  we shall refer, are quite at. variance  to what we have always been taught,  and serve to drive home the fact that  the successful fruitgrower must al  ways continue to be a student if he  wishes to keep abreast of the times in  fruit culture.  Thus, we have been told to keep the  trues a long distance apart in planting;  encourage the growth of large trees  by discouraging early bearing and  that peach trees make suitable fillers  for an apple orchard-. Whereas, Mr.  Middleton advocates the closer, planting of trees, with a view to keeping  them smaller so that the fruit may be  harvested to better advantage; the encouraging of early bearing (to a limited extent) not only on account of the  early returns but also as a means of  preventing the tree from attaining too  large a size and emphatically objects  to the planting of stone fruits with  pomes, for the very same reason, that  apples and pears require to be irrigated much later in the season than  peaches or cherries, and that where  Concluded on Papre Four.  KIPLING SEES NIGGER  He is   Disappointed   With   Reciprocity  Agreement.  Montreal, Feb. 0.���������Mr. Rudyard  Kipling, in a personal letter to a friend  here, written from Engelberg, Swit  zerland, says: "I am more worried  than I like to be about this 'Canadian-  United States reciprocity game.'

I cannot believe that  the Government is unaware of the immense   importance of this industry in  Canada, or that the Ministers did hot  know  that very serious injury must  result by the removal of the duties on  U. S. fruit, for these things have been  pointed out to them  oh manv occasions.    I am therefore driven   to  the  conclusion that free fruit was insisted  on by President Taft as a quid pro quo  forcer-tain other concessions wanted  by Canada.    That such a step was absolutely    unjustifiable   goes   without  saying, and  the greatest indignation  has  been  aroused through the large  fruit-growing    districts    of    Ontario  where the  blow will be a serious one.  It ts  possible that there may be an  attempt to   justify the step   on  the  grounds  that, while the industry in  the far west is hurt,  that of the Maritime provinces is greatly benefitted.  Such,  however, is not. the case.    For  early apples and  berries Nova Scotia-  may obtain slightly  better prices  in  the New England states but I have received a telegram this   morning from  arr  authoritative source stating that  the abolition of the duties is a. matter  of indifference to the apple industry  of Nova Scotia as their  markets  are  altogether in England. In Npw Brunswick and Prince Edward  Island the  fruit industry though a growing one,  is not.so extensiye.   Quebec does not  grow sufficiently to count in the export market.    There remain Ontario  and our province, and in  both cases,  especially our own. the disastrous effect of the proposals is at once apparent.    It is evident from the references  in President Taft's message that a free  market in Canada was coveted by both  the Southern and Pacific Coast States  and I  cannot believe  when   tho  true  fact/S are known.that so grievous an  injustice to a national industry, will be  allowed to disfigure our fiscal policy.  Ontario growers are organizing a  very large, delegation to come to Ottawa and protest against the removal  of the duties, and I have been asked  to suggest to British Columbia the advisability of taking a similar course.  I might point out, however, that the  Minister of Finance has explicitly  stated that the scheme must go  through in its entirety, and there is  not the slightest probability of remedying the matter at the present stage.  As far as the present Dominion Government is concerned the reciprocity  proposals will undoubtedly be passed  intact through this Parliament. Some  action, however, either by delegation  or otherwise, which will show to the  Government the unanimous feeling of  British Columbia fruit-growers as to  this great injustice is highly desirable.  It is nob necessary for me to say  that, having the honor to represent a  constituency in which fruit-growing  plays so enormously an important  part, and also from the fact that all  my personal interests are wrapped up  in the fruitindnstry, I shall take every  possible step to impress the House* and  the Government with the baneful and  injurious effects which must necessarily flow from such a step as the one  proposed.  It is not likely that the measure will  pass through Parliament for two or  three weeks, and whataction Congress  may take is a matter of guess work.  Should the arrangement be ratified by  Congress and the U. S. Senate (which  is extremely doubtful) it is open either  to Congress, or to our own Parliament, to alter any specific feature of  the proposals which may seem to work  disastrously for either country. It is  probable that some such feature will  be amended by the Congress next year-  ami in any ease the overwhelming  representations  of Canadian  growers  MINE ACCIDENT  Five Men Have Narrow Escape in'Nickle  Plate Mine.  On Thursday last an accident occurred in the Nickel Plate mine which injured two men   but proved  almost a  miraculous  escape for five men.    The  injured  men were  Harry Sweet and  Danny McEachern, although the latter was able to go to work again a few  days after.  . About a week before  when Sweet  and McEachern were working toget-,  her they put in   a round of four holes  and on firing them-heard   what they  took to be four reports although one  was so very light  that they suspected  it was not a genuine shot and Avould  likely prove to be a missed hole.    Tl'v'*  place was left for a few days and tilt/  were sent to work  elsewhere,   but on  this occasion they went back to investigate   and clear   a way  for   another  round.   Throwing back the muck and  looking for the missed hole McEachern  was'handling a shovel  and Sweet had  a  pick.     Having drilled   the former  round   themselves" they  had  a good  idea of where the missing hole would  be found and Sweet was raking the  muck  towards him,  evidently counting on a greater depth of derbis over*  the  hole than   there  was.   The point  of the pick detached about half a stick  of powder which .travelled with the  surrounding muck  about four or five  feet from  the place  it had rested and  on striking a piece of rock it went off  about half way between them.    Sweet  having his face  tiirned  towards  the  point got his face peppered and it was  thought at first that his eyesight was  gone.    McEachern  had his back   towards the   spot   and   while   he may  have got more of  the  Hying  stories  than his partner his wounds were not  so likely  to be attended with   bad results. The doctor was summoned from  Hedley and had Sweet brought down  to  the  hospital  where  he is  making  satisfactory recovery.  Just before the explosion occurred  J. Sampson and two others came up,  and as the pieee of powder which went  off happened to be the top of a heav  ily loaded hole it was most fortunate  that all did not go off together as soon  as the pick struck it or otherwise it  would have been almost certain to  have killed all five men within reach  of it.  WORK AT HOPE  Railway Contractors Assembling  Their  Forces���������V. V. & E. Not There  Merritt Herald  Hope is a busy town these days and  the populace is naturally elated. The  cause of it all is the actual inauguration of construction on the Canadian  Northern between Hope aud Popknru  and a crew of over one hundred men  has been placed in the .vicinity of  Hope.  The final surveys of the Canadian  Northern from Port Mann to Thompson crossing, 80 miles above Kamloops.  will be completed by the end of March.  The maximum gradient in the entire  route does not exceed five tenths of  one per cent.  TUNGSTEN TESTS  should make it obligatory on our own  Government to amend the evil in respect to our own industry.  I shall welcome any suggestions  from the growers of Yale-Cariboo and  British Columbia, and beg to assure  my own constituents that 1 shall exert  every effort on their behalf both now  and at all fuUue times.  I have the honor to be. Sir,  Yours very truly,  MaI'TIN  IlUKHKLL.  The principal ores of Tungsten are  wolframite, a tiuigstute of iron and  manganese, hubnei-ite, a tungstate of  manganese, and sheelite. a tungstate  of calcium. All three of these minerals have been found in the West in  economic quantities. Tungsten minerals are first identified by their high  specific gravity. Both wolframite and  hubnei-ite are heavy black minerals  with a. bright metallic luster. If the  mineral is heated in hydrochloric acid  a bright yellow precipitate of fung-  stic trioxide is formed. If a reducing  agent, such as metallic tin or /.inc. is  now added the trioxide is further reduced and the lower oxides will show  blue and brown. Sheelite is a heavy  light-yellow colored mineral and has a  slight resemblance to oichnclase, it*-  high specific gravity will easily distin  guish it, however, and the chemical  test described above will identify it  beyond question. Havrntr proved that  the mineral in question is a tungsten  an assay is necessary to determine the  percentage of liuigstic acid it contains.

STOESS  December-Jllth, 1910* 50-10  PALfl6&  Wvery, Feed & Sale tables  HKD.LEY--M.-C.  l80I--I9II  It is   rather a "coincidence that it is  just  exactly  twenty   years   ago   this  mouth   and   about  thi.-.  time,   of   the  month   that a Dominion election campaign   was  on   with   the   fight at the  thickest  and Canada,  fighting for her  very existence   on this   same question  of reciprocity.    Then the issue, was before   the   people   with  Laurier,   Cart-  ' wright,   Patterson,  Ned  Fairer et al.  trying to  sell us soul and   body to the  United  States.    Unfortunately,   however, the people of Canada have never  been given a chance  to say what they  want    done   in    any   great   question  which   has ever  come  up since then,  for   apparently    Sir   Wilfrid   cannot  trust- the Canadian electorate to do as  he  wants  them   to do  and  he  takes  good  care to  do the  thing  he   wants  done by means of his subservient parliamentary  majority before he dissolves  the  House.    He did   that in the  case    of   the    Grand   Trunk   Pacific  scheme; he. did it when the autonomy  bills  were  forced on   the   northwest  provinces and now he is doing it again  in   connection  with   this   reciprocity  agreement.  It was to take that disloyal stand  for his party that La.u-ier became  leader, for his predecessor in the lead-  ship of the party, Hon. Edward Blake,  put his Canadianisin before his Liberalism and refused to do the job. He  could not reconcile the unrestricted  reciprocity dictum of the party with  true Canadianisin or true British loyalty and he withdrew wholly from the  contest, refusing to offer himself for  re-election to his constituents in "West  Durham, but witliolding his reasons  until after the contest should be fought  out lest it should be charged against  him that he had aided the enemy in  the fight. But after it was over and  the people of Canada had remained  true to their patriotic principles Blake  addressed a letter to his former constituents in 'West .Durham giving his  reasons for withdrawing from the contest and the reason lie gave was that  he could not- as a loyal Canadian subscribe to the doctrine of unrestricted  reciprocity which he said "was only  the thin end of the wedge for annexation."  Why do not the Canadians in the  Imperial House who know the circumstance relate this  instance to Asquith  "V A good stock of Horses and Rigs on  Hand.

A hockey match was played in  Princeton on Tuesday between Princeton and Granite Creek and was won  by Princeton 5 goals to 0.

Miss Bond and Miss Fraser, former-;  ly matron and nurse 'of the Hedley  hospital, left on Tuesday for .Vancouver; During the past two weeks, since,  they gave up ...their positions in the  hospital on Fell. 1st, they have been  visiting friends in Keremeos, Princeton and Hedley.

Patten returned on Saturday  from Ivjunloops where he was attending court and helping to secure the  conviction of one of the parties who-  stole his horse last summer.' Chief  constable Fernie had the case well"  worked out and the evidence for the  prosecution in- good shape and although Mclntyre for the defence had  secured a remandfor a week he had  no doubt that the case would be sent  up for trial.  It was bad news which went over  the wires to Walter McRaye of the  Lyceum Phiyers on Saturday last.  The following paragra ph taken from  Sunday's News Advertiser tells it: "the  infant, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. AVal-  tei- NcRaye died yesterday morning',  at 14+2 Haro street, from which address the funeral will be held Monday  morning -at 11 o'clock." When 'here  last weekc he. knew nothing of the illness and when the Gazette made inquiries as to Mrs. McRaye whom we.  saw in Stratford, Ontario, as a charming petite direct from England doing  Little Lord F-i.untl.eroyover twenty  years ago, he jokihsrly but fondly told  of the "wee red-headed girlie we have  at home who will make another Little  Lord Fauntleroy." The Gazette extends sympathy.  The by-laws of the Hedley Hospital  have never been very strictly enforced  in the matter of admission of visitors  hut when people become so thoughtless as to abuse the privileges extended them there will be no recourse but  to enforce the ��������� rules provided irr the  by-laws which limits the hours for re.:  caption of visitors to Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays between the  hours of 3 and 4 p.m. arid 7 and S p.m.  Any one who is foundv-to be so unprincipled as to disobey the rule  which forbids any visitor to surreptitiously carry into a sick ward liquor  or food to any patient should be made  an example of. To do so stupid and  unprincipled a thing would in some  cases be nothing short of murder and  if a death resulted from such conduct!  the,guilty party would be liable to indictment for manslaughter.

Mrs. Daly and her sons, Will and  Maurice together with Geo. _ Allison  started for Vernon on Monday where  they had been summoned, as witnesses  on the Felix Blitz case.  George Allison intended'making a-  trip to Princeton on Thursday but altered his mind when he got as far as  the gravel pit and saw that the train  had inconsiderately pulled out.,. An  attempt on Friday proved more successful.  While conducting the demonstra-.  tion in pruning last week Mr. Middle-  ton examined the fruit buds on trees  in this district and pronounced a good  crop for next season, no real injury'  having resulted, in his opinion from  the rather severe frosts, which visited  the valley this winter,  At the annual meeting of the local  conservative association on Thursday  of last week the following officers  were elected for the ensuing, vear:  D. McCurey, President, r J. J. Armstrong Srice-Pres, F. Sauve, Sec-Treas.  A resolution was passed urging the  government to build a wagon road up  the Ashnola as far as the forks as  soon as the weather will permit. It  was also decided to circulate a petition  in this connection.  The Packing school of which mention was made'a lew weeks ago will  begin in the town hall here on Monday  morning, 20th inst. All who are taking the course are requested to be on  hand early and others who may be interested in the work but may not  care to take the course will be welcome to come and look on. A class of  about 15 have already signified a wish  to take the course and there mav he  possibly more.  A. valentine social was held on Monday evening in the town hall by the.  Ladies' Aid of the Methodist church  at which a tidy sum was'reahzed from  admission and the sale of valentines.  An interesting program was presented  a government engineer who not only  surveyed the route of the proposed  road as far as the forks but far beyond.  The official report of-.this survey has  not yet been made public but we have  reasons to belieye that it was entirely  favorable. That such a road, if continued about 20 or 25 miles up the  Ashnola would open up a fine tract of  agricultural land is well known, and  it is claimed by some who profess to  know that this road if built could easily be connected up with the proposed  road to Steamboat Mountain, and  serve as a link in the great trunk road  to be built across the province. Whether this feature of the.question is feasible or not we are not prepared to say,  but there can be no question as to the  urgency for tire'road as far as the forks  of the Ashnola. Upon its construction  depends the development' of mining  interests which by reason of their location,- will mean much to this valley  and to Keremeos in particular. With  the object of bringing pressure to bear  a petition has been circulated and very  largely signed by residents of this district during the week.  quehtly could speak with convincing  force. Much'useful information, which  was more or less known to ranchers  here, was given by Mr. Hoy, of Vernon, on such topics as "Orchard pests  and their control", "Winter injury,'j  'Types of soil" and "Conservation of  Moisture*'. From here the lecturers  passed on to the Boundary country  and the Kootenay to continue the good  work.  Coming, as the series of lectures did,  at a time when fruit-growers here  were discussing the unfavorable in-'  Alienee which the Dominion Government's reciprocity agreement is likely  to have, it is not to be wondered that  there Was much comment on the respective attitudes of the federal and  provincial governments towards the  fruit-growing industry irr this pro  vince.  t  NEW ZEALAND   BUTTER  Guarantee to be the Nicest on the market  -#  J.

FRUIT GROWERR COURSE  Continued from Pane one.  these fruits are mixed in   an orchard  one or the other must suffer.  In irrigating it has been customary  with most growers to keep their furrows near the tree rows and leave the  intervening space without water. This  was declared permissable for the first  year but not sufficient for after years,  owing to the fact that in a very few  years the roots of the trees will have  spread so as to cover all the intervening land and the extremities of the  roots absorb the most water. Thorough  irrigation at infrequent intervals is  the most desirable.  The great importance of trimming  the roots in planting young trees, thus  promoting the growth of new fibrous  roots, was emphasized and as in other  cases the reasons clearly sut forth.  The lecture on the Physiology of  plants in practical relation to fruitgrowing, by Mr. Carpenter, was most  interesting and served to render intelligible many habits and peculiarities of plant life,  which   without this  ^^P&Wxf9Jt^^&&&^mpW^,^^imi,9Jt9x&w^^^^^%^%>^%^%>^^^������^^P*^%P*  KEREnEOS  MEAT   MARKET  ^**^^*B"^'^"^'^"^"^'^"^'^"^"^^'6'^"^"^"^"^'^^'&"^'^'^^'6'^"''8^'6"^"^^^"^"^^fl"^^^*'^"^"^^>"^^'^'fc^^*"^'^"^"^"^"^^^^������  m ������  ae     ���������        ,, '''���������������������������'"'���������'���������'''''''���������'���������*  a\      When in Keremeos stop at the *  t ��������� " '��������� - x  $  ae  i  if  t  ae  I  ae  s  i  ae  HARRY TWEDDLE, Proprietor.

Last week the Board of Trade received a. communication from the  Vernon Boards of Trade inviting them  to sent delegates to a joint meeting of  Boards of Trade to be held in Revelstoke to oppose the con teniplated action of the Dominion government in  taking oil* the duty on fruit. The  Board of Trade here met on Monday  to consider it and while they did not  appoint delegates to the Revelstoke  convention they passed a resolution  opposing the change and agreeing to  concur in anv steps which might he  taken   by the Revelstoke   meeting.  Mr. and Mrs. George Thomas, of  Brandon, Man., arrived in town on  .Saturday, coining in by way of the  Okanagan. Mr. Thomas was oue of  the pioneers of Manitoba, where he  was for many years Dominion boiler  inspector, and he has still large machine shops in Brandon. They had  been out to the coast before, coining  in here and as this is the iirst time  they have been out of the province of  Manitoba for twenty-live years they  are making the most of their outing.  Mr. Thomas is interested in Keremeos  fruit lands and represents a number of  other prospective buyers, it is his intention to go ahead with improvement of his own holdings.

The practical demonstration of pruning given in Mr. Armstrong's orchard  by Mr. Middleton embodied more good  common sense than we have ever- seen  or heard in a similar demonstration  and showed up many of the grave mistake's which have been made* in the  past in this respect. In this connection we can only say that those who  missed this demonstration missed the  best part of the entire course. The  proper trimming ot the branches so as  to shape them to bear their load of  fruit; the. keeping of the tree open so  as to permit the sun to reach all parts;  the fallacy of cutting out all the shoots  in the centre of a tree (commonly  known as water sprouts) instead of  pruning them down so as to encourage  the formation of fruit spurs and thus  making the strongest part of the tree  carry its .share of fruit; pruning so as  to guard against sun-scald: to promote  the growth of new wood or fruit, as  desired, was all clearly demonstrated  and reasons which could not be disputed were given support of all that  was said and done.  It was not so much the eloquence, of  the lecturers, though in time they  may develop into finished speakers,  that appealed to their listeners as the  fact that they were all practical young  men engaged in fruit culture themselves and  who had  put  their  book  SILKS  Large Assortment of choice Silk Dress  Goods, Silk handkerchiefs etc'  for sale at right prices  TOMHY SING, Keremeos.
