Office, Greenhouses and Seedliouse:  3010 Westminster Road,  VANCOUVER,   -   B.6.  Hon.>Mr. Bowser reported on the  motion of Mr Oliver for a Select  Committee to investigate" the claims  of John McCIfirty re certain timber  limits alleged to have been staked hy  him on Vancouver Island, and of  which he said he had been wrongfully deprived, that it was scarcely a  matter for a Select Committee, as  his Department had investigated it  and found nothing irregular. Mr.  Oliver's motion was defeated,  During the past week the big Water  Act has loomed up largely,   its hulki-  nessaud  weight proving so slow in  progress  through Committee of  the  Whole that it has  blocked . all other  legislation   and delayed   prorogation  for seemingly another week at least.  The.  progress of the Bill has    been  chiefly delayed by the studious and  painstaking citicism of the Leader of  the Opposition. Some of his criticisms  appear to a lay mind, to be hair-splitting, but to some extent at least they  are justified as the measure is    the  .most important that has   been  before  the House for a long time.   Hon. Mr.  Fulton   has. consented to lay about  half the 144 sections already considered, over for consideration,  and there  still remains 171 sections  so  that the  Bill is likely to take up a great deal of  the time of the coming week.  Another important measure was the  Civil Service Reform Bill, introduced  by Hon. Dr. Young. The Bill does not  differ very materially from the similar  measure introduced by him a year  ago, but js more complete and more  finished. The fine work of the actuary makes it rather difficult of criticism without a great deal of calculation, and it is likely to have a  smoother voyage through Committee  of the Whole than the Water Act,  One of the great surprises of the J  week was the adoption by the House  of Mr Hawthornthwaite's resolution  asking for the appointment of a Royal  Commission to enquire into the workings of the liquor traffic with a view  to the establishment of liquor regulations oh the Gothenburg system. In  debate Mr. Hawthornthwaite was the  only speaker. When the vote was  called the House witnessed the rather  singular spectacle of the Premier  voting for it while the Hon. Mr. Tatlow, sitting right alongside him, held  One of the best Jong-distance over  land wireless records ever made stands  to the credit of the steamship Rupert  City, sailing between Vfincoiiver and  Prince Rupert.' On a recent trip to  the north the' Rupert City operator  for the United Wireless Telegraph  company was in communication with  the. land station of the U4ii i ted concern  at North Vancouver. The vessel .-it  .the time was in the harbor of Prince  Rupert. l  As the country between North Vancouver and. Prince Rupert is exceedingly mountainous, the, aerograms  must have passed over these high  mountains. But added tb this feat of  the instruments aboard the Rupert  City, the operator coin th tin icated direct to the United company's station  in Seattie while the boat! was at Prince  Rupert. This distance is more than  500 miles and the messages must have  travelled overland.  By wireless experts this feat is considered the most remarkable of any  accomplished on the Pacific coast, or  perhaps in the world. So far the best  records' have been made'by the wireless stations and steamships of ths  Pacific. As the Rupert City is  equipped with only a two-kilowjitt capacity set of instruments,' wireless  engineers point out that the vessel  must have a wonderful sending and  receiving apparatus to.be able to work  at such long distances and ~ with high  mountains between the points of  transmission.  But the instruments aboard the Rupert City do not seem to be limited to  this overland distance. On the same  trip the operator was in communication with the United wireless station  at Marshfield, Or. This is a distance  of 1300 miles. These aerograms also  must have come part of the way oyer  the. land, and-, for-^tliat- i;e'a������������n:-~inakes  the record all the more remarkable.  Diseased Meat Shipped  to London and  Condemned by Medical Health  Officer.  TIME CARD  CHANGES  TAXICABS IN SEATTLE  Latest Form of Transportation  Now  on  Coast  Startling allegations concerning the  diseased condition of some, recent consignments of American meat are contained in a report hy Dr. Williams,  medical health officer of the port of  London,, pic-en ted to the city .council  at the Guild Hall to-day. In a shipment of meat that' arrived Feb. 2nd,  consisting of tongues, kidneys, liver,  tripe, lamb plucks and sweetbreads,  Dr. Williams reports that he found 28  sheep livers and 180 lungs diseased out  of a total of 2,400. There were also  300 frozen hog carcasses on boaid this  of which 15 were minus the lymphatic  glands. One carcass was effected with  tuberculosis.  "There is no necessity," he declared, "of removing the lymphatic  glands unless with some specific object  which is presumably that, in the cases  of the 15 carcasses found without  glands, they had been discovered, on  inspection . in the United States, to  show some evidence of disease."  Continuing, Dr. Williams pointed  out that in the above consignment  more. than six hundred Cases of  tongues, livers, plucks etc., bore an  official tag that they had been inspected and passed as sound in the country  of exportation. The city council decided to forward Dr. Williams' report  to the local government board with  the idea that the incidents therein be  brought to the notice of United States  ambassador Reid and the sanitary authorities and that earnest representation he made to the board in the interests of health.  A number of the members of the  health committee commented on the  conditions set forth in Dr. Williams'  report in unstinted terms.' "If such  abominable filth as diseased livers  have been.eaten-by-.the- pobis"-he- said,.  "it will lead to an increase of the terrible disease of cancer." They declared  the matter to be one of national importance, effecting the health of the  whole United Kingdom, and they ap-  I pealed to the corporation to give the  discovery the widest publicity and  take immediate steps to "prevent a  recurrence of this disgraceful business.'  A change in. the 'time table on the  Great Northern came into effect on  Wednesday.' The train from Keremeos for Oroville leaves at two o'clock  instead of three,. as formerly. There  is ho change in the time of arrival from  Oroville, , The train leaves Oroville for  Spokane a half hour earlier in the  morning and returning leaves Spokane two hours earlier,' arriving in  Oroville at,7:30 instead of 9.30 p.m.  The change in the. time card would  appear to favor the granting of , a  through service to Keremeos and the  cutting out of that objectionable layover at Oroville, but so far there is no  suggestion of such further change being effected. - Travellers making the  round trip to Spokane will have three ���������  hours longer to remain in Oroville  under the present arrangement.--Keremeos'Trumpet.   ���������  "BUSTER BROWN" UP IN COURT  Ottawa   Citizen    Wins    Against New  York Herald.  x  X  X  X  JS  X  ���������S  X  X  X  X  X  r$  X  ��������� X  a  .'S  ���������������  a>  X  X  X  X  X  X  ft*  X  &  X  HOTEL  EDLEY  Under   New   Management  Qui k r a x d C o x v f. x i e n t  Sl'KCIAT.

It is unique and clever* in its arrangements as worked out by its compiler,  Mr. Frank Yeigh, of Toronto, the  well-known writer and lecturer. 30,000  copies have already been sold.

Seattle, March 1.���������The Seattle public will soon be provided with the latest forms of transportation by a perfect system of automobile cabs.  The Seattle Taxicab Company,  which is inaugurating the service, has  received three of the new cabs, which  will be put on the street immediately,  and others will be received at intervals as fast as they can be turned out  by the factory, until, by June 1st,  50 taxicabs will be in operation.  The feature of the service that will  appeal to the public is the cheapness  of the rate for which their services  will be rendered.  A tariff of 30 cents will be charged  for the first half mile, and 10 cents  for each additional quarter of a mile  when the car is occupied by from one  to three passengers. For more than  three passengers and up to six, 30  cents will be charged for* the first  third of a mile, and 10 cents for each  additional sixth mile, and a charge  of 10 cents will be make for every  six minutes that the cabs are kept  waiting. Hand baggage will be carried for any distance with a passenger  at the rate of 20 cents for each piece,  and small trunks will be charged for  at the rate of 40 cents each. Within  certain limits, approximately three  miles, no additional charge will be  made for calling for passengers or  for the return of tho empty cars when  dismissed by the passengers.  The taxicabs are equipped with an  automatic device which, by an indicator, shows the passenger the amount  of the tariff due as the cab proceeds.  and the waiting time begins to count  as soon as the cab stops, thus keeping the total constantly within view  of the passenger.  The drivers will be uniformed in a  smart livery of grey coats, trousers  and caps, with black leggings and  shoes which will render a genteel tone  to the equipage. .

The decision of the Supreme Court  in the case of the New York Herald  vs. the Ottawa Citizen decided an important point in copyright law. ��������� The  appeal involved the title to the comic  page supplement known as "Buster  Brown." The. New York Herald in  1902 began the issuance of the series  in question, but did not register it in ,  Canada until 1906. The Ottawa paper  first published the features under arrangement with the New York Herald  but later issued a comic section of its  own under the same title. Thereupon  the New York paper took out an injunction to restrain the Ottawa paper  from doing so.  The Exchequer* Court dismissed the  case on ground that the. New York  Herald, being sold in Canada without  copyright, it became public property,  which any -person-could use in - whole  or in part. This judgment has now  been affirmed by the Supreme Court,  Judges Davies and Duff dissenting, but  it is understood that thedecision will  be appealed to the Privy Coundil.  GOTHENBURG SYSTEM FOR B.C.  in the   Right  Nelson News  The very deep snow in this vicinity  has afforded the Hosmer people a little  pleasure and excitement which will  probably not fall to their lot again for  some time to come.  Three   miles north  of the town  a  small herd of elk,  consisting of  one  bull, two cows and a calf, have become  snowbound.   They are in such deep  snow that it has been possible for most  of the townspeople to get a good  view  of them without any danger to them  selves.  On Sunday several ladies visited the herd on snowshoe and were  greatly pleased with the   sight which  they afforded.    The bull elk possesses  a splendid pair of antlers,   which  at  times he seemed anxious  to  put into  use.     Several good  snap shots have  been secured by professional and amateur photographers both from   Fernie  and Hosmer.  Game warden Lewis, after inspecting the elk, has had them supplied  with hay as there appears to be very  little natural food where they are  snowbound.  The remains of one elk was discovered in the snow, it had been shot  by some unscrupulous person, and this  fact has aroused the interest of the  people of Hosmer so that an association for the protection of game and  fish was formed on Saturday evening  at the Royal hotel,- The officers elected were, C. B. Winter, president; Mr.  Drumniond, vice-president: Lawyer  Dunbar, secretary-treasurer.  Hawthornthwaite's   Step  Direction.  The legislature on Friday night  adopted a resolution presented by J.  H. Hawthornthwaite, Nanaimo, asking for the appointment of a royal  commission to look into the facts of  the liquor business in British Columbia and to make a study of the Gothenburg system with a view to the possible adoption of this system in the  province. The Liberal wing opposed  the resolution and it is probable that  the matter* will be made an issue at  the next provincial campaign. This  system, which at present obtains in  Norway and Sweden, entails virtually  government control of the manufacture arid sale of liquors.  IN THE FEDERAL HOUSE  British Columbia's Representatives Take  A Hand in the Debates  J. D. Taylor, New Westwinster, introduced Bill Miners's escape, expressing surprise that in view of the development there has been no further-  investigation. He pointed out that a  number of visitors were allowed to see  Miner contrary to regulations, and although records were kept, the inspector of penitentiaries should have put  them in his report prior to the escape?.  He quoted a press interview with C.  P.R. detective Bullock which stated  that the story that he believed Miner  had bonds in his possession, was a  myth, and although he had not personally interviewed Miner on the sub  ject he was present when Jake Terry  was permitted to see the convict. Mr.  Taylor laid stress on the statement of  ex-warden Burke that then* had been  a long delay in authorizing him to  offer a, reward.  This was explained by inspector  Dawson claiming that the telegram  was addressed to.hi in persona 11 v and  not to the inspector.at Ottawa, unci lie  being absent had caused the delay.

The importance which the
fruit growing industry is assuming in British Columbia is
now not only realized by those
engaged in the business hi this
province, but it is recognized in
Eastern Canada and in the
mother country where our
apples have taken many prizes
at competitive exhibitions. But
what is of more advantage to
us than any acknowledgment
of our possibilities in this respect, in outside quarters, is the
fact that the great transportation companies are showing a
decided disposition to encourage
fruit growing in the province
by offering''the best possible
facilities and the lowest rates
for carriage to our nearest and
what must be-our largest permanent market, the prairie provinces.
The conference  between  the
fruit   growers, the   . boards of
trade and officials of the C.P.R.
which   opened   at Victoria   on
Monday may very  properly  be
regarded   as  an  event  in  the
history of the   industry in this
province.    Those present were
representative   men  and   well
fitted to take this   whole question into consideration and decide what was best for the present and future requirements of
the   industry.     The    harmony
which marked  the discussions
indicated the completeness with
which all parties perceived the
benefit which would   accrue  to
every branch of trade  by judicious encouragement given   to
enterprise in this direction.   Indeed the  transportation    companies have  no  less  reason  to
extend a helping  hand  to  the
settlement and development of
our fruit growing  areas  than
the public at large   has.     They
have much to gain by doing  so
and that is realized  thoroughly
by the men in command of our
great railway corporations.
As the result of the conference at Victoria we'-anay reasonably look forward to still greater activity than has been shown
in the past in the work of trans
gress of   the fruit industry  in
British Columbia will learn   of
the efforts'of one of our parliamentary    representatives,. Mr.
Martin     Burrell,     in   making
known the opportunities '-offer-'
ed by this department-'''of productive labor.   Twice since the
session opened Mr.   Burrell has
addressed    Canadian  clubs   on
the resources of British Columbia and on the last occasion   he
dealt specially  with  our fruit
industry.    According .to the report of his address^in the  eastern press lie  sketched  the history of friiitgrowing in British
Columbia, from the planting of
the fruit tree in' 1849 by , Mr.
James Douglas, chief factor  of
tlie Hudson Bay  company and
afterwards    governor    of    the
crown colony, up to'the present
tremendous development  with
75,000 acres in orchard, a- great1
deal' of it under irrigation.    The
first'shipment, he said,  to  outside markets was made in  1897.
In 1902 the  province  produced
2000 tons of fruit; in .1.904,  3000
ton s, valiied at $250,000, and  in
1908     over   $1,000;006 :  worth;
which fruit was marketed not
���merely in the North West and
Great   Britain,  but  in   far-off
Australia.    Mr. Burrell pointed
out that the development of the
fruit industry iii British Columbia was only  at its   beginning,
because,   aside  from  the    fact
that   there  was  much  ground
still to be planted,  only 10 per
cent, of the area, thus far planted was now in  bearing.
One statement in his  address
is especially  worthy  of  attention as, in it, he contradicts aud
very properly'so an'ancient accusation made against our fruit.
It was rather the habit, he said,
of some people in  the  east,  as
well as in England, to say that,
while   British   Columbia fruit
had a pleasing appearance   and
while the orchard yielded abundantly, the fruit lacked quality.
This he spoke of as   a pleasing
fiction, and   drew attention to
the number of prizes  won by
British Columbia fruit in  competition with the very best that
could   be  produced  elsewhere.
At the great show of the Pacific
Coast     Fruitgrower's    association at which the best   growers
of     Oregon    and   Washington
were   represented,  British  Columbia, he said, had taken  the
hundred dollar gold   medal for
the best live cases.    And at the
first great national apple show,
held    tit   Spokane,   last    year,
which was attended by   buyers
not    only from   all  over    the
United States but from Europe
as well, the Kelowna district in
British Columbia,  which    took
there a small exhibit, won $5500
worth of prizes   and  took  also
the cup for the  best individual
apple,    in   color,  texture    and
quality in the whole exhibition.
At the Royal Horticultural society's   exhibition   in   England,
where the judges were the most
like this ; the earnest assurance
' i
by responsible and' experienced
men of the rewards which can
be secured by honest and industrious effort; ''Anil Mr.
Burrell certainly deserves tli6
highest credit for his loyal eu-
deaVor' to make known the advantages of this province.���Ex.

cipally saloons���-on the right   bank  of
the Columbia river,   a  short distance
below the C. P. R. bridge;  In one of
these shacks in February of that year
1 held riiy first Sunday, service in Rey-'
elstoke.     On Wednesday of last week
the Presbytery   of Karnloopsi'.-inet iii
Knox church and was: constituted.    A
dozen 'ministers and several eldors'were
present.    There are two   Presbyterian
congregations in Revelstoke and; Knox
church, the second built, will compare
favorably with the churches in  much
larger cities in the . east.     The saloon
town of 1S86 is now a   prosperous railway    city   with  wide concrete   sidewalks, fine mercantile  establishments
and an over-abundant snpply'of snow.
Fruit   ranches- are also  in    evidence
there, or at least the tops of the   fruit-
trees can be seen, but this  year there
may be considerable loss on   account
of the weight  of snow  breaking  the
trees. We went to Revelstoke ' by  the
Okanagan lake route, and returned by
way of Nelson and Oroville.      In  several  places  the road  between  Green
Mountain and Penticton is bad enough
to upset the nerves of strong men and
should have the  immediate  attention
of the road supervisor.     A  trans-continental clergy certificate stood me for
all and more than I could have obtained with a C. P. P. half-fare permit   on
the trip from Nelson to Keremeos;      I
realize in this that my C P; R. friends
of the past are not my only friends  of
the present.     In  the  mid-summer of
1S8S I made the run from   Revelstoke
to Robson (then called Sproats' Landing)    in  John  Blackhall's row boat.
The fare was ten   dollars  and lots   of
muscle for the oars  and  the  sleeping
accommodation    was  a   "fly"   Rocky
Mountain feathers and  a   blanket  on
the bank of the Columbia river.  From
Robson to  Nelson   (then   called  Salisbury) I enjoyed my old time foot pass.
The town of Salisbury in 1SSS consisted of Ward's canvas hotel  and bright
prospects.     To-day Nelson   is  one  of
the most attractive  mining   towns   in
British Columbia, and her wide  awake
business    men    are   making a noble

Hon. A. B. Aylesworth answered  that it was unfortunate that a matter  of this kind had been made the matter  of trial by a newspaper, particularly  when the paper* was the organ of a  member of the house.  J. P. Taylor interposed that the  Columbian had taken no other part in  the matter than to publish a signed  statement.  Mr. Aylesworth continued, charging  that when he heard the series of questions regarding the escape, the Columbian was the only newspaper to mention chief inspector Mcintosh as the  one who gave away certain information, when the name should be Mc-  Ken/.ie.  Mr. Taylor interposed that the Columbia had no despatch from Ottawa,  the. article being copied from the Vancouver Advertiser.

C. papers.  Mr. Aylesworth replied that he had  been informed that was the case, he  did.not make it. from personal knowledge.  Mr*;Borden remarked the minister  should have 'personal knowledge before making the statement. The minister failed:tt> touch on the real points  of the Cii'se. He argued that it was the  government's bounden duty to have  an .immediate inquiry to see what  Burke and others had to say under  oath.  Solicitor general Bureau argued that  a full inquiry had been made and there  was nothing that could be done, citing  Burke's   letter  that he had nothing  more to add to his evidence.  Martin Burell resented the sarcastic  remarks made about British Columbia  Too much is being made of an error  in a press despatch and the minister  should have made a, further retraction  of his statements.'* People of British  ���������Columbia want to know if there will  be a further inquiry. Developments  show that there should be a further  inquiry and inspector Dawson should  not figure in it as he mixed up in the  affair.  G. H. Cowan, Vancouver and A. S.  Gnofleve appealed to the premier to  rise above partyism and to clear the  justice department of all suspicion, lest  the public lose confidence in the ad  ministration of justice.  cisibn could not be as complete as it  would otherwise have been. They had  all beeaxlelighted at the .capture and  conviction of the American desperado,  and felt ashamed at his being allowed  to escape. However, there was nothing to pr-ove that there should be an  other investigation. He deprecated  the introduction of irrelevant matter.  Hon. G. E. Foster* said the irrelevant matter had been .introduced by  the acerbity-of 'the 'minister of j n&tice.  The conduct'of ���������" the' matter showed neglect and in view of the later information an investigation was necssary.  J. W. Macdin, Cape Breton, wanted  the rumor that the stolen C. P. R.  bonds had been returned investigated.  Glen Campbell, Dauphin, pointed  out that nobody had been punished  for the offence of permitting Miner to  escape and this was a blot on the department of justice.
