Price Ellison and  bhe debate thereon as well ;is thai on  the reciprocity resolution.  THE ESTIMATES  presented Lo parliament and enlarged  upon by the Finance Minister in his  excellent budget speech shows a  healthy eorrditiorr of the provincial  finances and permitted a more liberal  expenditure for public improvements  throughout the province.  In .this larger expenditure for public  improvements the Similkameen has  come in for its share and representative Shatford, the man who never  slips a cog when the rights of his constituency are up for .consideration, is  to be congratulated on the- generous  appropriation he has secured. The  general vote for roads and bridges is  put down at $132,000-which is the  largest ever received. In addition to  this there is a supplementary vote of  $2000 to the $108,000 of last year and  besides there are other- votes through  the estimates in other departments of  the public service than thab set aside  for roads and bridges which will bring  the appropriation for tlie riding well  on to the $150,000 mark. Bub of course  the .Similkameen is a large riding with  a-h.ea.yy. road.mileage to be 'maintained" iind--no'injustice is done to any  .other portion of the province in thus  giving to the Similkameen what its  wants require as charged by Williams  the Socialist member for New Castle  who took it upon himself to find fault  with Mr. Shatford's frequent pilgrimages over his riding.  Many of the members joined in the  debate .on the biidget. Among them  Lucas the new member for Yale made  his maiden speech in which he made a  good impression.   _  Williams, of Newcastle, devoted  most of his to ridiculing the statements of other speakers and general  fault-finding, being called to order at  times by the speaker for unparliamentary language.  Mr. Shatford, of Similkameen, congratulated the premier on the splendid selection made in Hon. William  Ross as commissioner of lands. He  also congratulated the member for  Yale upon the excellent maiden speech  made by him during the afternoon.  Mr. Shatford gave a brief resume of  the progress made by the province  during the past eight years, during  which the Conservative Government  has been in power. He strongly disapproved of reciprocity with the  United States which will be very injurious to fruit growing, one of the  most important industries of his district. Mr. Shatford complained that  the map issued by the provincial mineralogist does not contain the name of  Gimp Hedley and tie asked the premier to see that the defect is remedied. He predicted that the building  of the Kettle River Valley Railway  would not- only be beneficial to the  Similknineeii district but would bring  an immense amount of business to the  coast cities.  11 IS PLY TO WILLIAMS  "I   intended   to   answer   something  said  by the  member  for  Newcastle,"  said  Mr. Shatford, "bub perhaps it is  Continued on Pago Three  Drunk men and kids are generally  to be counted on t" blurt out the truth  at inconvenient seasons, but a man in  the .position of Champ,Clark leader- of  the'.

Nevertheless his annexation  break in the House on bhe occasion of  the reciprocity debate ab Washington  shows .plainly  that  he   qualified   as  "L'ENFANT TERRIBLE" -..!..-��������� iV::'  So intoxicated had he become over  the success of his leadership that nob  con ten t with declaring h i inself w.hol 1 y  in support of reciprocity with Canada  he had to go 'furtherand "'indicate that  this was only the first step and he  looked to the day when the -stars and  stripes 'would .wave'over the whole of  the British/possessions irr North America-.;/. ���������' ���������'-': ; '-.* ���������'-���������������������������������������������      '.; ';��������� '    . -\  Realizing, the seriousness of the  fa'-ux pas and the effect it was likely  to,have, Taft.at-- once placed himself  011 record as deploring the.indiscretion'  of the man from Missouri.

Write me about your claims  Why Little Importance Can Be Attached.  ;������������������ To Working of Old Reciprocity  Treaty  Those who are most anxious to have  Canada swallow the reciprocity agreement of Fielding and Patterson never  cease to refer to the success attending  the old agreement which "wits in force  from'''1851 until 1865.  There are reasons, however, why  little heed should be paid to this. In  the firsb place Cobdenish* had just begun-to. demonstrate that it was the  correct policy for England and Canada at that time was in the .habit of  taking all her ideas from England  without going to the trouble to think  for herself. Cobdenism was undoubtedly the proper thing for England at  the time it was adopted but it has  long sirrce outlived its usefulness and  if Cobden were alive today he would  be found among the tariff* reformers.  . Then also the good times for Canada  which attended the Russian war in  the Crimea, had not yet had time to  subside when the war between the  North and the South brought more  grist to the mill of the Canadian farmer, this last war dance lasting almost  the entire period in which the reci-  jn-ocity agreement was in force.  When the United States got on her  feet again after the war she started in  to take every advantage within her  reach to build her finances and once  she declared for high tariff it was useless for Canada alongside to persist in  her suicidal policy of jug-handled free  trade. It was only by giving the  United States a thirty years treatment of her own medicine that Canada has placed herself in position to  hold her own.  Property;.  Furniture  Furnishi  ........

Government  Grants     Vancouver, Feb. il.���������After negotiations extending over two years, the  Grand. Trunk Pacific has at last been  successful in securing bhe Indian re-  serve ab North Fort George for. town-,  site purposes.  Difficulty was experienced in getting-  the Indians to abandon their reserve,  as they held out for terms which the  railway company regarded as excessive, but which, it is understood, have  been acceded to.  The Indians, in addition to the pa* -  men t of a money consideration i ������������������  every member of the tribe,' will i,-  placed on a new 750-acre reserve in the  Fraser river, fifteen miles east of 'Fort.  George. They will "be transferred  there during the coming spring.  The deal detween the railway company and the Indians has been approved by the Indian department at Ottawa and it is saidthe provincial government has consented to the arrangement. ��������� ��������� -������������������* '-'������������������������������������  The Grand Trunk Paciffic will undertake the work of subdividing the  townsite this summer. It is situated  on the south bank of the Nechaco.river, near its confluence with the Fraser.  The -railway. company also owns an  addition in the same." vicinity, and the  two parcels will be embraced in one  townsite. '  ; As the Indians are 'being -'moved  frorn Old Fort George which is wholly  taken over it looks as if South Fort  George will fare better under the new  arrangement than its n, rthwestern  rival.

Finance'Minister, Hon Price  Ellison, on one of his early trips  through this valley when Manuel Bar-  cello's first orchard was just coming  in bearing, was so struck with what  he saw that he carried three of the  apples with him on horseback to Vernon and from there forwarded them  on to Victoria where a cast was made  of thein and these were hand painted  in exact imitation of the natural coloring of the apples. These casts were  retained in the department in Victoria for many years before Mr. Ellison had them sent on to London.

These cold facts of political history  I in Canada during the two past decades  prove that the government at Ottawa  ..have no mandate from,.the people to  in any way set a*-ide the principle of  protection which has become firmly  established as part and parcel of Can  ada's fixed fiscal policy, and to use a  parliamentary majority obtained on  altogether different issues to force '  through an important-measure of this  kind against the wishes of the electors  is rank unjustifiable usurpation ' of  power and a base violation of the  fundamental principle of representative government.  Let Laurier now practice what he  preached to the British Columbia delegation who went to him for "better  terms" clad with all the authority  which could be given them by the  provincial legislature, and let him* go  to the people tor his mandate before  be thinks of usurping their .powers  arid rights in ratifying an agreement i  to Which the people are opposed.  "AT. IT HERE SITICE 1900V  ^L^ASZfTt  co.Lfo;  THERE IS NO MANDATE  Shortly after the McBride government took office a deputation from the  government consisting of Hon. Chas.  Wilson and Hon. R. F. Green accoin  named by Geo. H. Cowan proceeded  to Ottawa to confer with the Dominion authorities with a view to securing  better terms for British Columbia. At  that time this province was represented at Ottawa by what its representatives were pleased to boast of as "the  solid seven" and Sir Wilfrid tauntingly informed the deputation that they  ���������'had no mandate from the people of  British Columbia to ask the thing  they were seeking."  It is interesting therefore to note  that Sir Wilfrid in taking that ground  gave his assent to the principle that  before any important step is taken  politically there should first be a mandate from the people, and yet no leader in Canada lias so persistently violated the principle as he himself has  done, and no more flagrant violation  of it is conceivable than that of attempting to force the reciprocity  agreement made by Fielding and  Patterson upon the country by means  of his parliamentary majority.  Never has Laurier had any mandate  from the people of Canada to do as he  proposes doing, or to interfere in any  way with the principle of the National Policy.  When he obtained power in 1890 the  trade question was not an issue although in view of the fact that the  Liberal platform of 1893 contained a.  plank in which their old time opposition to protection was adhered to, a  section of tin; Conservative forces  tried to make it an issue but the Clark  Wallace wing would hear of nothing  but the Manitoba school question and  the Liberals took.good care to make  no reference whatever to the anti-protection plank in their platform and  threw all their energies into the task  of helping the YVallaceites and M.c-  Carthyites to fan the flames of religious and sectarian prejudice. Furthermore it has since been fully proven  that in order to lull the manufacturers  and business classes into a false sense;  of security the word was passed a-  round to them by the Liberal workers  that the Liberal leader had given the  assurance   that  the   protective   tariff  EDITORIAL COMMENTS  L. W. Shatford M. P. P. is to be.  congratulated on his speech on the  budget. The report of it in the News-  Advertiser and Colonist which has  come to hand since the skeleton taken  from the Province was put in type  gives some idea of the matter and the  stvle in which he handled the subject.  His calling down of Socialist Williams' ceaseless buffoonery and reckless charges was about the best rebuke that individual received during  the session. The shiftlessness and  general indifference of the Provincial  Mineralogist in his treatment of this  camp was also rebuked in fitting  terms and the attention of his chief  drawn to the neglect in a manner that  should prevent repetition of the Mineralogist's annual offence against  Camp Hedley.  rSavelour Jlonef,  We want evetyonetotoiow  ftjat we are paying -  c~4% Merest^  perammrc credited m'tiilf  on savings deposits ($1b-  , k uparoj subject Withdrawal br cheque &V  '���������r- 5������ Interest^  onumeSqpsiteof-  Sij-fmoiittis & over, ���������*���������  Ve invest moncf forclicnts  inteinortSa^es&doa  general IfnanciaVrju^eJB.  %vi^^ur������&aa^  & if you are not saving  sysTematicaft*v, ���������*���������*- > .'���������*��������� ���������*-..  6ommeiu;eM0W\pK.U5.

It is doubtful whether  it will accomplish anything by way of  staying the commercial vandalism of  which they (the fruit-growers) are to  be made the victims, but it was the  only thing the government could do  cind they did it. Premier Laurier told  the eastern fruit-growers that there  had to be sacrifices somewhere but he  took good care that no {particular industry in his constituency was to be  made the sacrifice.

The  quantity put up was rather less than  in former years and liad there been  more required it would have been  difficult to have procured it without  going further up the river. This year  Mr. Schuberthas.put up a good quantity and intends supplying it to customers during the summer,' Should  he find it satisfactory and decide to  continue it from year to year it is not  likely that many who have.been in the;  habit of putting.up ice for themselves  will bother with it another- year as  there is always more waste from filling a number of small ice houses than  in the case of one big one.  "Sunshine System of Irrigation, or  Rain without Clouds" is the name  given by Clement Vacher to his invention of asystem of irrigation which  ���������will apparently soon become popular  among orchardists and farmers in the  interior of this province. The invention has been patented in Canada, the  .United States, and Mexico; also Spain,  France, Italy and other European  countries and a patent is pending in  Great Britain. Many advantages are  claimed for it over'the popular system  in vogue of distributing the water by  means of open ditches. The principal  ot these are: economy of water, economy of labor and minimum cost of  -maintenance. Write to Clement  Vacher, Kelowna, B.

Harry Sweet who was injured in  the missed holt; accident in the Nickel  Plate was sufficiently recovered from  his injuries to he discharged from the  hospital on Saturday last. It was a  fortunate, ending for what might have  been the premier- tragedy in the history of the mine and Sweet and his  companions are all to be congratulated on their escape.  Precipitation was light during the  month of January but during the past  two weeks the snowfall at the mine  has been getting back to something  like the old mark. A bountiful supply  of snow each winter helps out the  water supply and as there is now more  water in the lake than there has ever  been at this time any year since Lamb  had it nearly all pumped dry in the  winter of 100(1 there is a fair prospect  of getting it back to the old level this  year or next year at the furthest and  when that has once been attained the  expense of pumping can'be cut out altogether.  Jack Neill left here on Monday  ���������afternoon to return to his ranch at  Bow Island, Alta, where Mrs. Neill  has been all winter. Mr. Neill arrived  in Hedley in November and has been  working here all winter, most of the  time on the bridge, except what time  he lost while he had the top taken off  his thumb. Word received by him  from Alberta was to the effect that  they had had a severe winter but he  is looking for an early sp.iing and an  abundant crop next summer, and  hence his anxiety to get back in good  time for the opening of spring.

Shatford commented on the fact that  Mr. ' Williams . does not attend the  meetings of the private bills committee, having been at only one meeting  this session.  "I don't know that I ever attended  the committee at all," responded Mr.  Williams.    "It was accidental if I did  so.-':      ���������   -  Mr. Shatford, continuing, admitted  the truth of the charge that he spent  two or three months every year going up and down the district of Simil-  karneen in order to ascertain its  needs. He did not in this respect imitate the member for Newcastle, whose  activities were confined to spending  five or six weeks each year at Victoria  and drawing a nice sum of money.  Hon. Mr. McPhillips brought the  discussion to a close in a speech condemning the land and reciprocity policies of the Dominion Government  and declaring that the present gov*J  eminent of British Columbia have the  people behind them.  The estimates were then taken up  and a. hundred and one items were  put through before adjournment.  There was very little discussion of  these items. Mr. Williams enquired  why the votes were being lumped this  year instead of being spread out in  detail as formerly and Mr. Thomson  explained that it was in order to avoid  compelling Mr. Williams to say "Aye"  so often.  Mr. Brewster enquired upon what  j>rinciple the sites for demonstration  orchards had been selected and Mr.  Bowser told him, in substance, that  the orchards were being located where  they would do the most good.
