���'A universal interest in the progress
of "the Panama-PaciflG International
Exposition has been -expressed ��� hy its
thousands of friends hi all parts of
the world.       _"*
The progress of the exposition at
this time gives evidence that the unprecedented success which has attend-
ils opening period will be many times
amplified in the ensuing* months.
The arrival, early-in April, of the
last national displays from Europe discloses a. wealth of exhibits, a large
number' of which represent phases of
European accomplishment not hitherto exhibited in America.
Many of the thousands who during
the present year will take advantage
of .the existing ��� low transportation
rates have begun to reach San Francisco. In the first ninety-two days
following the. opening of the exposition on. February 20, 1915, 5,000,000
persons passed through its turnstiles.
This extraordinary attendance, when
token in connection with the fact that
the" great .vacation travel has not yet
begun gives definite promise of the
continued and spectacular success of
the exposition.
The exposition was never more beautiful than it is at the present time.
Tho daffodils���200,000 plants���that
were massed in the south gardens upon the opening of the exposition gave
way early in April to as many yellow
tulips, and these in turn have' been
succeeded in May by yollow pansies,
riotous acres of the massed blooms
���presenting a vista of fragrance and
charm certainly never excelled. In
regular rotation will appear begonias,
dahlias and ohrysanlhcuinums. The
pansies at present in bloom will remain during May and June. Then pink
begonias will appear almost over night
and carpet tho spaces of the south
gardens with their splendid richness.
Tho fall will be given over to the dahlias and chrysanthemums, the latter
being the last of the flowers to blossom in the south gardens and bringing

. Among the advance events of international interest scheduled for : the
exposition period, is the arrival of the
Liberty bell from Philadelphia in July.
The Liberty bell will leave Philadelphia on,July Sth arriving in San Fran-.
Cisco on the evening of July 16th.
Plans now made will bring this sacred
relic of America's freedom -to San
Franciscojn time to be the inspiration
for. a celebration on July 17th, com-
mensorate with the significance of the
occasion. 1 Several hundreds ol! thousands of school children, from all parts
of' California will be in the parade of
welcome which escorts the bell from'
-tlie depot to the Pennsylvania .State
Building, where it will remain during,
the period of the exposition.
The journey of the bell through' the
west will afford the o.'.ly opportunity
the major part of the. western citizens
will'ever have to pay their homage at
this shrine of patriotism, and the occasion of the appearance of tho liberty
boll in San Francisco will beyond any
question result in a spontaneous outpouring of loyal Americans from all
portions of the United States.
Eight hundred and  twelve congresses, conventions and conferences will
meet in San Francisco during the remainder of the years, the majority on
tho    exposition    ground.'.      Tho    San
Francisco  civic  auditorium  will    accommodate the larger of these, others
being held at Festival .Hall in the exposition grounds and at the Oakland-
auditorium.   Among the largest of the
conventions will be that of the National Educational Association Executives
of great transportation companies have
expressed tho belief, founded upon reports  in   tlieir  possession,   that  thero
will be 40,000 delegates, their families
nnd friends in attendance at the convention   which  will   begin   on  August
10.     The   principal   meetings  will   bo
hold in Oakland which has direct ferry connections    with    tho    exposition
Tt is the conservative estimate ol!
the division of congresses nnd conventions of the exposition   thnt there.

(Nelson Newsl
Stanley- Horswill of the ICth battalion, son of 'Aid. A. S. Horswill of Nelson, has written the following letter
home dated May 22, in which he describes the gallant way the Canadians,
of whom he was one, stormed and took
an orchard, which according to recent
reports had been unsuccessfully at-,
tacked on several occasions by soldiers of the regular British army. He
says: ''���''.
"We are now in reserve trenches
where we are enjoying a well earned
rest. I have been busy all clay cleaning up and.eating-and-resting, as we
have-had a particularly hard week of
it. * While-I write the Huns have just
begun their evening recessional bombardment of artillery and the big
shells are burstingin our'rear, where
they are'Searching out our guns. We
went into reserve trenches last Monday and on Tuesday advanced to supports and in the evening went forward-to 'the front line, where we successfully dug ourselves in. making r.
good trench. - From that early morning till Thursday evening we held the
trench under heavy shell fire. At 7:45
Thursday 'morning the attack took
place'. -A few minutes before wo were
told.to fix bayonets, and the object of
our attack. Our artillery had shelled
the "orchards which .was our object,
very heavily, and we expected a fairly
easy victory. It was glorious indeed
to see the "boys of the 16th go into
Alive With   .II11 chine  Guns
"Without a sound and in perfect parade order the companies of the battalion leapt the parapets and advanced.
You should have heard the din. The
whole front seemed to bu* alive with
machine guns' and the men began to
go down quickly. We pressed forward
and our officers were splendid. It was
most helpful and glorious to see our
captain coolly and unhurriedly climb
over the front parapet and signal to
his line to jump over. They came as
one man and: the attack was on.
"We made the first hedge and drove
on to the next, the Germans retreating as Aye came.   On our right, in an
old farm house, we found five machine
guns , which they had abandoned  and
which our.boys- destroyed.   The din as
we advanced was tremendous and-one
could not hear oneself speak, but the
order  and   the   objective   were  never
lost sight of for a second.   Major Peck
and_Capt. Moore, our late commanders
in' the 30th, were both wounded.  Major
Peck.is certainly a noble man, and his
men love him.  I was greatly surprised
at my own coolness in the attack and
also at my courage.   As far as I know
there were no Nelson.boys killed but
some were wounded.    Our late Lieut.
MacKenzie was killed.    G. R. McFar-.
land was  wounded.    My pals in another  company,  Nelson  boys, are  all
O. K. excepting Jack Gouldingand Anderson of the Bank of Commerce who
have both been wounded.  I expect now
���that we will soon be allowed to.go out
and take* a good rest again and refit
and reorganize.

"The 16th batallion has certainly
made a name for itself and I see in
Punch 11 full page drawing doing great
and particular honor to the 16lh for
their-gallant, action -it Vprcs on the
22nd and 24th.
"Voit will also see, I think, that No.

in dispatches for their good work tho
other night.   ��� v
"Tho war is going fine all along the
line and we are advancing in miles
at this point. ,_ While our boys, after
wo had searched the wood and orchard, were digging themselves in, I
was sentry and , during the lulls in
the living I could plainly hear our
Hun friends taking away at a great
rate. Aftcr'we had dug ourselves in,
in pretty good shape, we wore relieved
by another hunch ol! Canadians and
they are holding the line now. I
think we will soon be sent out to billots as wo have had enough fighting
as our share, for a little while.

and  Lone   Shir   MiiK*.*
Fpv   tho   first   time   in-  nearly   ten
months the whistle at tho Greenwood
smelter blew on Monday, and quite a
number recognized its sound.    The. B.
C. Copper Co. is now busily engaged
preparing  its  smelter   and   mines   for
immediate operation.   At lirst only one
S00 ton furnace will be operated, and
50   men    employed    at   the   smelter.
There will be 50 men employed at the
Mother Lode mine, and 30 at the Lone
Star.'   As  time goes on'the  company
will  endeavor  to operate  to  its  full
capacity'.   The company will not run a
store   at   the   Mother   Lode,   and   the
hoarding house at that mine has been
leased.    The company will  provide a
reading room,, and contribute towards
tennis   and   other  outside   sports   for
the benefit and recreation ot the men
employed   at   the   Mother   Lode. ' Mr.
Longworth will be assistant superintendent   at   the   smelter,   and   P.   E.
Crane   superintendent  at  tho  Mother
Lode.   F. S. Norcross is general mine
superintendent for the company. Quite
a number of the old employees  will
occupy   their   former   positions.     Tho
entire -/works   will   bo   operated   upon
a sure and  economic system  and no
doubt the company will make money
for years to come.   Austrians and Germans   will   nor   be   employed,   except
when  men  of  other  nationalities  can
not bo procured.    It has been a long
and tiresome task for Mr.  Lachmund
and his associates to make the smelter
smoke again, and the success of their
cffGrts is highly appreciated by practically all of the people in this section
of the country.   Tho sun of prosperity

Dear Ray,���
Just a few lines t)- lot you know I
am in the best of health and to thank
you i'dr the photo: \ noticed Paddy
Murray in it; I had thought that he
had joined the army, but \ suppose he
Jacks a few inches. There sire quite a
few Similkameen Valley boys in this
regiment, viz.: Harry Etches, Bob
Hogg (Keremeos.) and another fellow
from Penticton named Oinisby, who
are quite well; and Billy Hope and
Bob McCurdy who are wounded and
at thu base hospital. Sid Edwards, I
am Sony to say. was killed by a shell;
some of the boys saw him buried on
the. hat tit-field and notified his parents.
Say old hoy,-this is a regular- hell all
right, when a fellow is in action and
the fireworks agoing. Wh��n I come
back for a'rest, | just sit down and
wonder how tin- devil I came out without a scratch: I am in the machine
gun section', or as it is generally called
tlie '���suicide club.". Our friend tlie
enemy likes to find out where the machine guns are and then shell hell out
us���that's how poor Sid was caught.
We are out of t he trenches for a rest
and hilletled in a farm house, or what
was once a farm hou-e. By the looks
of it, I think it has stopped a few
shells since the war began. The poor
old farmer didn't have lime to thresh
his wheat last fall so we are!using it to
sleep upon..,
Well, olchboy', we are expecting to
go to the trenches again' tonight, but
only expect stay for'a couple of days
and then, go hack to the base for a
good long rest and re-organize: and as
I haven't any envelopes, 1 shall not he
able bo-send this until I get back.
By the looks of things L think we
.have the Germans on a down-hill run.
We have taken quite a number of
trenches lately; the poor- llims seem
to-have all th��e go knocked out of then);
they won't stand in front/, of the hay- ...
onet at all at all. The English Tommy
has great piaise for the Canadian-- out
here: they all give us the glad-eye
when we are passing their), and call us
Sam Hughes' mad-men.
You must excuse this scribble as T
am writing this on tho top of a hullv
beef Uox. Say, old boy, please dorr't
ask me where I am, because I don't
know whether I'm in France, Belgium
or Germany; I'm still in the ring anyhow, and I have to be thankful for
that. NowT inust close, with regards
-to all the boys, hoping you are all'in
the best of 'health...-'

Vernon loses one os its.most prominent and highly esteemed citizens, and
the Bar of British Columbia sutlers a
piol'ound loss, arrd leaves a vacancy

came to 'Vernon about. "��{ years ago.
and has practised his profession there
ever since: he has also acted most-acceptably in the capacity of city solivi-
tor in Vernon  since its incorporation.
Death resulted from an attack of

Those visitors  are additional to the regular tourist  traffic to the nest in the nurninor and  the many thousands who have secured  reservations for pleasure tours ot California and the west, with the Panama-  Pacilic luf rnational Exposition as the  obj.'tiive ol their iourney.  An international pri'-'C shooting tournament at which, it.is expected, fifty  thousand marksman will gather, will  be held on the Shell Mound range in  conjunction with the exposition, com-  ' mencing on Sunday, August. 8th and  the tournament has attracted the universal attention of marksmen-throughout the world. Fifty thousand'"��������� dollars'  will be distributed ,in prizes to successful contestants at the tournament..  The. tournament will be inaugurated  'with a magnificent demonstration  through the principal streets of San  ^Francisco and on the ' exposition  grounds. By a happy coincidence  "German "Week" will close on that-  day,-anil-of-the' thousands of Germans  that will participate, in celebrating  "German Week," many will prolong  their stay in order to take part in the  tournament while many shooters will  come a few days in advance of the  shooting festival to. take part in c-ele-  , brating "German Week." Prises aggregating more than fifty thousand  dollars will be distributed..  An idea of the magnitude of the convention life of the exposition is afforded by the fact that eighty-one of  the conventions are scheduled for June  133 for July and in August, the pinnacle month, there will be 249 con  vontions, congresses and conferences  having the exposition as their pivotal  point. In a single convention, that of  the American Medical Association during the week of July 21, there will he  24B prepared addresses and papers.  Of world interest will be the convention of the International Engineering congress with 20,000. delegates,  Colonel George W. Goethals, will preside over the sessions. The proceedings of-this congress will be publish-  'ed in eleven large volumes.  , In the athletic program are many  events ot! international and national  importance. The polo tournament,  which was held during February and  April, attracted noted riders from the  clubs of the United States while the  crack golfers of the country were entered in the golf tournament. In June  ���������will he staged the summer harness  meet one of the biggest meets ever  staged in the United States, tens of  thousands of dollars being allowed for  awards. Another harness meet of  equal importance will be held in the  fall.  The high educational character of  the exhibits has won the praise of  many executives in the conduct of former world's expositions. Along the  forty-seven miles of aisles of the exhibit palaces are assembled the best  results of man's invention and ingenuity during the past decade. The international jury of award has already  begun work in the exhibit palaces and  it will require unremitting labor from  now until the closing day,of the exposition before the complete examinations can be made of tho tens of thousands of exhibits that is necessary before an impartial and intelligent award  can bo made.  When it is said that the exhibit, palaces average about five acres ol! floor  space each, with nine extra acres for  the. gardens of the horticultural section, an idea may be gained of the immense area covered hy the exhibits  from the countries of the world.  Of the many musical attractions of  noteworthy interest during the exposition period will be the four concerts  by Cnmillc Saint-Sncns, the famous  French composer. During Juno Saint-  Sacns will conduct four concerts, comprising selections of his own composition. The dates aro June 12, Juno 10 i -j  and June 20 and 2G.

The most venerable rose tree in existence is said to bloom against the  ancient church of Hildesheim in  Germany. Notwithstanding-the many  parties which at different times have  been in the ascendency, they .all  seem to have respected and tended  the- rose tree/ which, it is said, was  planted by Charlemagne. The trunk  is now almost as big as a man's body.  There are five principal limbs trained against the church, the tree heing  protected by iron railings inclosing  an area of * about twenty-six square  feet. The rude German soldiers in  earlv ages tended the tree, Catholics  and" Protestants, in turn masters, of  tho town, drained the ground, the  soldiers of Turenne fastened up the  branches, with clamps, and those of  Napoleon, a. century and a half later,  erected the railings.

"Well," said a traveler in the  train one cvenin-r, "speaking of long  lives, my dear aunt died at the age  of  10G."  "That's nothing," said . a silly  looking drummer. "1 had a grandmother who died at 223."  "Bosh, do you want us to believe  that a relation of yours died at 223?  It is not only improbable, but utterly  impossible,"  snapped the   first.  "Not at all. She died at 223  Broad street."  eg*gg������*ffi''g^^  We will deliver Ice  every Tuesday and  Friday Mornings.
