BROWN  British Columbia Land Surveyor  Tel. No. 78 P. O. Diiawek 160  PENTICTON,  B. C.  British CJoluji*bia is to have a gener-  al election within the next few"weeks.  On Monday the House was dissolved  and the date for election was fixed for  April 10th with nominations .on April  3rd.  , Sir Richard McBride, is now preparing a'manifesto", to be .issued to the  electors and prior to the date of -the  election will 'make.ii tour.through the'  province. \'  In an'interview-Sii Richard McBride  stated that in view of a number of  conditions effecting the well-being of  the province���������considerations mainly'  arising from the crises of the war���������  that the country should be consulted  in respect to the policy which the  government proposes in pinsueing to  meet the situation.  Some changes in the personnel of  the Cabinet will be made to meet the  wishes of those who muy feel disposed  to relinquish office and to strengthen  the administration at a most critical  period in  the history of the province.  "Oh Wednesday at ."Princeton the  business men of the valley met the  government inspector of the'Oana-  dian Railway commission and F. D.  Kelscy, new superintendent of this  division of the G. N. R. and discussed  the question of having the daily train  service and the daily mail service resumed. - . ���������".;  At the present time tho service given  this .'community'is inadequate and  very inconvenient and is a detriment  to the welfare of the valley.  ��������� The question was discussed at length  and after fully hearing the views on  the case the visiting officials promised  to do what they could to rectify conditions.  The following business men of the  town made the trip to Princeton; G.P.  Jones, F. *H! French, C P. Dalton, I.  H. Rotherham, W. A. McLean and  H. D. Barnes. . Mr. J. J. Armstrong  was up from Keremeos to represent  that place.     t  TO THE COAST BY JUNE  Road To Be Ready  For .Traffic via Mer-  ritt and Spences Bridge  ' THIS YEAR'S ESTIMATES  P.

Price Ellison today  tendered his resignation as Minister of  Finance and Agriculture and'it-was  accepted. No changes in the cabinet  have been announced, but it is learned  that the vacant portfolio of finance  may go to L. W. Shatford (Similkameen). One other resignation from  the cabinet is expected and it is understood that a portfolio of railways, dis-  tinebfrom public works, will ..be created. The vacanry in the cabinet since  the .resignation of Hon. A. E. McPhillips as president of the council to  accept a judgeship will also be filled so  that it is assumed that the reconstruction process will admit four new  members.

Penticton���������The McDOugall damage  suit against the Municipality of Penticton, a twenty thousand dollar action has apparently disappeared^over  the horizon.  Municipal Solicitor Clay Ion received  word this week from Mr. S.S. Taylor,  K. C, who fought the casejfor the  municipality tmit the time had expired for the McDoug.'ill company to put  up security for an appeal to the Privy  Council and' "no security has been put  up. The period has also expired during which the Court of Appeal has  power to extend the time in which  'such security may be provided. Hence  Mr. Taylor believes that the action is  ended.  It will be remembered that the company sued the municipality for damages "on its water system contract.  Winning in the Supreme Court, the  company, however, lost the second  round in the Provincial Court of Appeal. Ib has apparenbly decidednot  to take the matter further.  Oroville���������J.   L.   Newman,   superintendent of construction on the Kettle  Valley railroad, left  by auto stage for  Princeton   Friday- last   after   having  spent'a day or two in Oroville.     Mr.  Newman has   heen  with   the Kettle  Valley road  for the  past  two years,  superintending construction-across the  Gold   range of   mountains,   between  Midway andPenbicbou,  and on westward from   the latter place.   ' He has  been     making   his.   headquarters   at  Princeton,   but will move his office to  Hope immediately, '   He reports that  there is a gap of 32 miles  between Os-  pray lake  and Princeton  yet to iron  and surface.     Grading   between   tin-  two ' points  is  finished and  the rails  will  be speedily laid in   the   spring.  Another j-ho.it gap from Coquihalla to  Hope is yeb to construct.    * The Kettle  Valley  will  use  the  Great Northern  tracks from   Princeton to  the former  place.   '-Mi*. Newman says that trains  will  be  running  to the coast on  the  Kettle Valley by June 1st.    He was of  the opinion  that it  would  be about  December 1st  before  through  trains  would be running on the Great Ninth-  ern road.    He stated that much of the  Kettle Valley  line is   built through a  rough  country,  very sparsely settled  and wholly undeveloped.  ��������� The provincial estimates ' fi r ;'1015  show that the sum of $72,000 has been  appropriated for roads, streets, brid- ���������  ���������ges and wharves in the Similkameen  electoral district, with $79,000 for  Okanagan district. ���������  The usual $1^0p6",.''subVidy' foi-''East  Summerland (-Naram/Ua) ferry, has  been renewed .with a subsidy of $1,250  for the boat beyyice to-Dog Lake.  WANT LOWER FREIGHT RATES  Princeton  Board of Trade Urge  Reduction on Coal - i  At the regular council meeting of  the Princeton boaid of trade the linit-  tei of freight rates on coal was looked  into and it is thought that in several  cases the fi eight rates charged were  excessive and precluded the possibility  of competing in some oi the neighboring markets on a favorable basis. It  was decided to secure a list of the current fi eight rates throughout the  province for discussion at the next  meeting of the council, and in co-operation, with the'local coal company endeavor to secure, more favorable treatment in the matter from the two railway companies before the opening of  next winter's trade.  WILL FINISH  BRIDGE APRIL 1st  The Canadian Bridge Co. expects lo  be through with the construction of  the new, Fraser river bridge for the  K.V.R. by the first of April, when they  will move their equipment to Walha-  chin and build a bridge across the  Thompson river for the Canadian  Northern Railway Company. Tin-  Hamilton Bridge Co. has the contract  of building the bridge over the Coquihalla, and the Manitoba Bridge and  Irom Co. has bhe work of constructing  the bridges at  the Coquihalla canyon.

WINKLER,     Proprietor  ROLL   ME   A GAME   AT   ROLLS  Max Ewart nabbed two foreigners  who had stolen across the international boundary line this week, and Magistrate Guernsey the other day fined  each of them $5 and costs and ordered  their deportation.  The two, Harry Krebs and Louis  Brotheison, hailed from Spokane.  Last year they worked on the Kettle  Valley construction line in the Kettle  yalley district and when construction  closed they dropped south across the  boundary line to spend the winter  months.  Attempting, to return for the 1915  work, bhey were stopped by immigra  tion officer McCallum ab Grand Forks  and were told that as they did nob  obbain a piiss when they left Canada  they; could not come back owing to.  the operation of the Dominion regulations restricting the immigration of  alien laborers.  Then the two of them went to Oroville and boarded the Weeks' stage for  Penticton. Officer Ewart heard of  them there with the sad result already noted.  Conconully���������The Lady of th? Lake  mine, lying on bhe outskirts of Conconully, owned by C. P. House of Oroville, and Geo. Hardenbure, of Lakeside, has been jumped by H.A. Young,  formerly county engineer. Upon jumping the claim work was started on a  shaft. This work continued two .days.  On the third day H. A. Wilder and  G. H. Wheeler and A. P. Wheeler  book possession early in the morning,  having a shotgun and rifle. H. A.  Young and crew started work at 1 p.  m. Thursday, it being stormy in the  morning, which was the reason for  not going to work sooner in the day.  They were met by the ilder Wbunch,  who told Young nob to start work, or  there would be something doing.  Young and crew withdrew. Wilder  and crew are still holding the fort ab  bhis writing, and their meals are carried to them.  Dedicates Canadian Building  Representing*the Canadian Government in dedicating the Canada building ab bhe Panama Pacific Exhibibion,  Hon. Martin Burrell, Minister of Agriculture, also delivered a message of  good will'from King George V. ���������   ���������  San Franscisco newspapers give  much prominnce to the opening of the  Canadian building and the King's  generous message, pictures showing  Mr. Burrell the central figure among  many notable men on the steps of the  magnificent structure; and Mrs.t-Bur-  rell in the forefront of the ladies at  the gathering.  On Monday last the case of bhe negro  named Stepson, the man who passed a  bad check on A. Winkler, came up  before Judge Brown ab Princeton. He  was given six months.  Frank James died on his farm in  Missouri last month, aged 74 years.  Cole Younger is now the only one living of that noted band of outlaws who  tvirorized 20 states, during and after  the Civil War. One of the band died  in the Boundary a few yeais ago.  "ONE SPOONFUL.ENOUGH"  SAYS DRUGGIST  G.N.R.

This line will give Penticton connection with Vancouver via the Vancouver, Victoria & Eastern or to Seattle  via the Wenatchee cut-off soubh from  Oroville,  SECOND CONTINGENT  ARRIVES IN IRELAND  Some Landed at Liverpool���������Three Steamers from Halifax Carry 400o Canadian Soldiers  Montreal ��������� Another 4000 Canadian  soldiers have landed safely in England.  Word was received this morning by  the steamship companies that the  steamers which lefb Halifax Feb 22  have reached bheir destination. The  steamers which took the first quota of  the second contingenb were the Me-'  ganbic and the Southland, which put  into Queenstown and the Missanable  which docked ab Liverpool.  The soldiers were taken over on tho  bhree steamers and were from every  part of the Dominion. Among th< in  were the 6th field artillery, 23rd battalion Westmoht rifles, 32 battalion  Winnipeg and 30th battalion of Victoria.  F. M. Gillespie, druggist, states that  the simple mixture of buckthorn bark,  glycerine, etc., known as Adler-i-ka,  is causing great surprize because just  ONE SPOONFUL relieves consbipa-  tion, spur or gassy stomach almost  IMMEDIATELY. Ib is so bhorough a  bowel cleanser that it is used successfully in appendicibis. Adler-i-ka acts  on BOTH lower and upper bowel and  the INSTANT action is astonishing.  It never gripes and is perfectly safe to  use.

DISSOLUTION  CONSTANTINOPLE  Since it appears certain that the  An^Io French licet will be successful  in forcing the Dardanelles, and will  eventually bring about the- capitulation of Constantinople, it is of interest  to consider what the future status of  that city will be. It seems as if only  two solutions are possible���������one that it  should become a Russian possession,  and the other, and more probable, is  its neutralization under international  guarantee. Sir Ed war.1. Grey has already stated that Britain sympathises  with Russia's desire for an outlet to  the Mediterranean.��������� We may assume  that the French attitude is the same.  Whether this sympathy extends so far  as tu allow Russia to letnain in permanent control of the territory fringing on the Bosphorus and Dardanelles  is another question. The internationalization of Constantinople would go a  long way towards solving an age-long  problem, provided that the powers responsible for the maintenance of its  status quo could keep the peace among  themselves.  In the many centuries  of its history  Constantinople  has had a long record  of sieges since Constantino determined  to build  a second Rome  "on the eastr  ermost  billon   bhe verge of Europe."  ' Before its walls in turn have appearrd  Huns,  Persains,  Avars,  Arabs,   Russians,  Germans   and   Tuiks.    In   the  middle  of  the  fifteenth century Mu-  hammed,   who was styled by his con--  temporaries, "The  Conqueror," entered the citd and gave  the Turks a foothold  in  Europe which  they  have retained ever since.    Since then many  times  hostile   armies   have   marched  within  striking distance  of the sublime  Porte, bo bhab the phase "dictating terms of peace under the walls of  Constantinople"  has   come   to be  regarded as synonymous with mastery,  But  since  the  fifteenth  centuiy   the  Turkish capital has never fallen before  an invader, because the jealousy of tie  powers viewed with alaim the occupation of so great a prize.    In has been  in the interest of the Great Poweis to  maintain Turkey in Europe in the past  because   of the   important   strategic  position  she  occupied as a  buffer between rival ambitions. When, in 1878,  the Russian armies had  reached San  Stefano the cry went up that Constan.  tinople was in danger.    Immediately  the Great Power's brought pressure to  bear and the armies of invasion melted away.     Bulgaria, in her successful  war against bhe Turkisk Empire   in  1912 never advanced 'leyond the lines  of Tcbatalja.,  nor n-.jver could  have,  wibhoub bhe powers calling a halb,  Bub now the conditions are altered  because Turkey herself has taken the  leap in bhe dark. The forces arrayed  against her are those whose interest ib  formerly was that her foothold in Eu-  Sir Hicliard McBride has determined  that the time  is ripe for an appeal lo  the'people for a ratification of his past  policy and for  a fresh lease  of power  in   which   to complete  the  plans  for  Provincial development already in progress as  well as an   endorsement of  such.new lines of effort as seem called  for by existing conditions.     He asked  His Honor the Lieut Governor to'concert to a dissolution of the House, and  the.   order-in-council   was   signed   on  Monday.      It is   mi-leratoiid that cabinet  reconstruction   will   precede   the  election, which will be held April 10th.  At  this election   the people  of Brit-,  if-h Columbia  will have full oppm utility to say to what extent they approve  of Sir  Richard's  course as Premier of  British     Columbia   during   the   pas-t  twelve years,  and  whether  they are  willing  to entrust  their affairs  in his  hands for another pailianientary term  It is premature to indicate the lines of  of  futtiie  policy upon   which   he wil  ask the endorsen out of the electorate;  but we  may say with  confidence that  it will  involve the 'completion   of the  railway    policy  as   already   planned,  both on the  mainland and Vancouver  Island,   which   has  been   to some, degree  delayed by  causes not under the  contiol  of any  person,   company   or  government.     The new   agricultural  policy will have a prominent place in  the campaign, and there will be other  lines  of aggressive  action to   he pie-  sent to the electorate for approval.  Sir Richard recognizes that the war  has brought about a new set of condi  tions effecting British Columbia, as  well as other parts of Canada, and is  .determined, if the electorate again entrust him with their confidence, to  grasp the ������itualion with strength and  i-ourage- lie believes in British Columbia as few men believe in it. He  knows his province and what it is capable of, and he feels certain that the  people who have stood by him iu the  past, are ready to accept his guidance  again. For our own part we have no  doubt as to the result. The present is  not the time to change leaders and  to place the destines of the Province  in the hands of untried men, who have  in season and out of season attacked  every policy and opposed every effort  'intended tp place the province in the  .forefront. Sir Richard McBride's work  for British Columbia is not yeb completed, and the people only wait for  an opportunity to clothe him with"  authority to finish it.  G ood - /Via r n i hg������!

A man weighing 150 pounds,  if proportionately strong,, could.thus  move 198,000 pounds, or nearly' a  hundred tons. Some years ago I  captured a very handsome beetle and  placed it tinder a beaker���������a thin  tumbler used in chemical analysis���������  on a shelf of my laboratory. A .few  hours after the beetle had disappeared very mysteriously, the beaker remaining inverted. He was recaptured  and again placed under the beaker.  I watched the result and presently  found that the beetle walked the  tumbler along the shelf till it reached*  the edge, then crept out and fell aa  soon as the overhang was sufficient  to afford room for escape.
