Ottawa, May 7th���������The air is thick  with rumors about the political situation, and the outlook is declared to  be for prorogation on May IS, with an  extra session of Parliament to he called for next September. No such agreement lias'been reached, eif course, but  only in such an agreement is the pre-  serifdeadlock likely to terminate. '  Sir W. Laurier and Mr. Borden  held a conference and agreed to submit a proposition* to their respective  party caucuses. The proposition it is  understood; relates to an adjournment  -not''to" a' prorogation of. P.irliarhent.  The* feeling among. the rank and file  on both sides, however, is lgainstad-  journuient, and it is believed; both;  parties will declare their preference  for prorogation." * '  . It was learned that the Prime Minister had decided to sail tor Etighmd  on.the 12th instant, even at the risk  ot postponing the 'reciprocity agreement to another session. It was rumored that pressure had been brought "to  bear from'the Colonial Office,- London,  but no confirmation of this report  could be secured from the party  leaders.  The government h. s virtually decided to sut'touiider, but is trying to  save its face bj hi-inging about some  agreement.  The extra ses-Mon in September, if  called, will be utilized in discussing  the recipiocity agreement if it should  be still on the lapis, and in,putting  through a redistribution bill. Meanwhile the Opposition is looking for-  waid with some hop6 to the defeat of  the agreement by the United States  Senate.

H. B. Buow.v  The  "Montreal  Gazette" prints an  open letter from Sir Charles Tupper  addressed to Hem. W, S. Fielding.  Sir  Charles  begins  by saying that being  nearly ninety years of age he thought  that he was out of public   life, but as  Mr. Fielding found it'easier tei misrepresent and disparage him than  to reply to the unanswerable speech, of Mr.  Siftoi'i,  he feels compelled  to  notice  some eif   the remark's'- made   by the  Minister of Finance.   He cannot accuse Mr. Fielding of hick:of couragein-  denying that he had advanced or advocated '/annexation'- to    the   United  States, and then  proceeded to  point  out  thsit in 18U8, after Joseph Howe  had exhausted every means of defeating--/confederation,   anel   decideel   to  make the best of it, Mr. Annand, the  then proprietor eif the "Halifax Morning' Chronicle," proposed to Howe to  apply to the United States. Mr. Howe  rejected the proposal   with scorn, but  Fielding remained with Annand, and  supported those whohoundeel /Howe  to his death anil drove him to an untimely grave..-  - In 1872 the opponents of confederation were unable to eleeit a single  member to eippose the government of  which Mr. Howe and Sir Char|es were  members. In 1886. when Mr. Fielding  carried the province in a desperate  effort'-'to break up the union, Sir  Charles went out- to",Canada in the  following year and cured this folly liy  bbtaining the support of 10 out of 21  members from Nova Scotia for- the  government   of   Sir   John   A.  Mac-  jdonald.    : Sir Charles then discusses the fisheries, .'question,'- quoting Sir AlairAyies-  iWprth as to the permanent value> of  the modus vivendi arranged by Mr.  Chamberlain and himself. Proceeding, he points out that Sir John A.  Macdonald's espousal of reeiprooity  was entirely due to the necessity of  fighting the continental free trade  ideas of Sir Wilfrid Laurier. He charges Mr. Fielding with misstating his  position iir the house: when Mr. Fielding brought in his tariff of 1897. Briefly, the contention of Sir Charles at  that time was that the Fielding tariff  should be condemned, and the condemnation Mr. Fieleling cites referred  to an entirely different thing from tha  Fielding tariff he finally passed*," Mi-.  Fielding having amended the tariff  along the lines Sir Charles indicated  must be followed..  Of the present arrangement Sir  Charles says, "I am opposed to your  agreement with.the- United States because Mr. Bayard, in I886,assured Mr.  Chamberlain and myself that the policy of the Democratic party was te> remove as soon as they were able the  'duties on all the articles in your  agreement, and President Taft now  sees  that he can only secure his   re-  1 m     ,  election by the same policy. We owe  nothing to the Republican party, anel  woulel gain everything without any  entangling alliance,, which would,: r  fear, end in the destruction of British  institutions in Canada."  CANADIAN GRAIN TRADE  Effort Made to Have  It Go to Seaboard  by American Lines  Montreal, May ((.-An extraordinary  situation in the shipping trade at  Montreal has been brought out by inquiries as tei the effect upon the St.  Lawrence route of a big cut in grain,  rates from Buffalo to the United  State's seaboard which cut has been  sanctioned by the Interstate Railway  Ceuirrnission.  It is admitted by Montreal transportation "men that this cut will have  a cemsideiable effect upon the movement of-Canadian wheat, but shippers  here have unconsciously adopted, a  much more effective method 'eif driving wheat traffic from the port of  Montreal. Steamship lines eiperating  From. ."Montreal have booked all their  May.space and a large proportion of  June space for American corn. Thus,  at the opening of the season Canadian  wheat for May and early June delivery is entirely displaced and has,  perforce," to seek an outlet by Anicri  can transportation lines. ;,  MILNER LOOKS TO CANADA  Is Convinced  of the True  Import of the  Reciprocity Pact and Hopes  for Its Withdrawal.  London,    May   4th.���������Lord   Mdner.  speaking at  Padelington, said  he hoped ... those   opposing  .the'.'..reciprocity'"  agreement, in Canada  would   stick to  their guns. He was not quite sure that  the  ..Canadian     negotiators    realized  what the\* were let ting.  themselve;s in,:  for. Political annexation was undoubt- -  edly  contemplated  by a large section  of the Uniteel States peeiple   and the ���������  present agreement iviti only a begin- .  ning.     The   Canadian   oppositionists  were entitled to  the sympathy of all:  Biitish   Imperialists   thr6ughout   the  world.  "1 believe,"he added,, "that the  harmony of Britain and the United  States is more likely te> be inninl.m.e d  by an understanding as twe> great."  equal powers than by the success of a  policy which, would disintegrate the  empire for the-United States to pick  up senile fragments."  BRITAIN'S LOSS OUR GAIN  More English Immigrants   for   Canada  ' Than Ever Before  Immigration from the cities of the  West Coast of( England will be greater  this year than ever before, according,  to ii statement made by F. 'if-. Tily, of  Bristol, who is visiting the Okanagan  Valley. "MrrTily says" that~practi-  ally every steamer leaving Bristol for  Canada this spring has a passenger  list of one thousand or more. Conditions for the working man in the old  country were never worse,; he says.  The supeitax imposed by the govern-  inent is .'pi-oving.'u trenrendous hardship and many are finding it impossible to live under tlie conditions. The  prices of many commodities have also  gone up. much of the i 111 migration  was being directed to British Columbia and Alberta.  GERMANY ALSO.  WANTS RECIPROCITY  ! LpWdon, May 2���������The "Daily Mail's"  Berlin correspondent says that while  it "is impossible in German official  quarters to obtain either.confirmation;  or'dehijil'iif an --.Ottawa', report that  Germany has begun preliminary negotiations for reciprocity with Can^  Ada,- he. is enabled to state that.- the  German government has stretched out  certain feelers in the direction of a  Gerrnaii-Cahadian arrangement..  WOMEN ARE BARRED  MAKES NO BONES  Taft Doesn't Deny That Reciprocity is to  Head off Closer British Connection  Whisper It Not to Mrs. Pankhurst, But  Methodist Divines Have Sat on  the Fair Sisters  . Again in his speech in New York  last, week President Taft urged citizens of the United States to support  the reciprocity agreement with Canada on the ground that it is the very  thing needed to prevent closer connec  tion between Canada and the mother  country. Yet mrface of this, Laurier  will pooh-pooh danger to the British  preference and closer imperial relations while Asquith and his "little  Englander" radical heelers lift a similar tune in England.  Toronto, May 4���������The court of appeals e.>f the Methodist church to-day  decided that under no circumstances  are women to represent Methodist-  congregations at national conferences.  The issue was raised by the British  Columbia conference, where a woman  elected by a uuarterly board to represent the church was refused admission  to the conference.  Last yea*:' the Kootenay district  elected! Mrs./..UishlKy Hall as a delegate te> the annual, conference which  met in -Nelson. Tri'Consequence.of the  ruling ot the chaii\at that conference .  against the admission of women an  appe*al was t^Keu to the appeal court"  of the cemference, with the above result.  DR. J. L.

Detroit man,  si-ems to have*  succeeded, in   reviving  ".'much' 'interest   in   -the    Sliakspeare-  Bacon  controversy  by - his    explications   in the bed of the; river Wye  for  manuscript and other ptbofs which he-  says will settle definitely the question  of  tlie:   authorship' of  the   plays, and  that  said   manuscript    will   not only  show   who   was   thu  author   but  will  show   that    Francis  Bacon    and   neit  '.'illiain Sha.kspeare  was the inspired  oaiel aiul playright.     It is only fair-  to  say. however, that many  of  the most  .ardent Baconians   take very little re*al  interest in   Dr. Owen's operations digging in the Wye   and   regard   him  as  dee-.ieledly erratic  although they  must  admit (if they  have  road any of his  books   on   the  subject)    that  he   is  a  thorough   Shakspearian  scholar.     At  irregular intervals for the last thirty  years, within     the    memory    of   the  Gazette: editor, the epiestiein   has conic  up   and ea-.-h time   new   recruits  have  been aeleleel to the Baconian side.    For  the past fifteen  years  of that  thirty  we have:   been   forced   '"ith   no  small  amount of reluctance (for olel   preconceptions die hard) to  take  the  Bacon  side.

Those   who   may   have    hael  their interest   in   the  subject  aroused  by fix: prese-nt discussion and   the  operation';   of  Owen   should   retail   Ignatius   Donnelly's    "Great  Cryptogam"  and   also   the   views   of  the'   late:   Dr.  Maurice   Ducke:    of   London, Ontario,  who is the  author of a. book entitletl  elise-overy. ���������  It is eiii:*iin-ageing tei note the enthusiasm with, which. 'President Taft's  proposal for world peace has been received in Britain. Not only in the:  British Isles but in the various colonics the movement is regareleel with tlie  most marked favor and Canada which  is perhaps more, immediately interested than all the rest is showing that  she fully indorses the scheme. If such  an 'understanding.as. that proposed"by  Taft should receive full official ratification by these two great powers  there   is   good   reason'.to   hope   that  European nations that are feeling the  burden eif maintaining heavy armaments will be- wise enough to see the  desire-ability of them hitching up with  it a- well and thus remove tlie necessity for the- present heavy armaments.'  It was a. wise and timely action on the  part, of the Presbyterian Church in  Canada tei place themselves on record  in the maimer which they did.  "T*AKK notice tliatAV. U.

'"���������'' Okanagan Falls,   the pretty town at  the foot of Lake Skaha (Dog Lake) is  to have its first public celebration and  believing   that anew   town   should  have   its   'own   new   day   they   have  ���������chosen June 3rd, the new King's birthday.  R. T. Barclay who is a painter by  trade,' having learned the business in  Scotland, is rc-suming the old occupation and has signified his readiness to  undertake anything in that line,  whether it be house, carriage or sign  painting.  Another recommendation which Mr.  Brooke, the poultry specialist can  claim for his orpington chicks is that  they are gun-proof in the shell. Some  chicken raisers around Hedley complain that the blasting has killed all  the chicks in eggs that were in process  of incubation but several settings of  the Brooke orpingtons that were subjected to like damage came, through  with the f ullepiota of chicks.  Users of the electric light in Hedley  can hardly have failed to note the exceeding steadiness of the light during  the past week or more and those who  have had to do with the electric power  will be even more impressed with the  change. It is due to the Lombard oil  governor on the new water wheel  which is now doing all the work under  an ample head of water. Absolute  steadiness appears to have been at-  . tained and not a shade: of variation  appears to be discernible either in  watching un incandescent globe or in  listening to the rhythmical purring of  an electric motor running either light  under ideal condition.

Wood, of Cireenwood, one of ye  olel timers of the country was in Ke-re-  nu:os over Sunday.'  S. ('. Pe.-u-ce, of Briiiceteui. wlio has  been em a trip to Spokane, spent the  week end here on his return.  II. A. Hincks was  a visitor in Keremeos over Sunday, returning to Medley,-via saddle, on Sunday evening.  Mis.  Sproule  of Hedlev   lias   been  .' spending the past week in Keremeos,  the guest of Mrs. Lowe,   at the ranch.  M. R.  Forrester, of Winnipeg, who  is on a tour of inspection of B. ('. fruit  lauds was a visitor, in this- district last  -week.  .Mr. G. E. Gra.hnin and Miss Nellie  ���������AVooelrow are: spending* a few weeks  in the valley, g-rests at the. ranch of  W. H. Armstrong.  15. H. Parkinson, P. L. S. passed  through here on Saturday on his return from the upper valley, where he  hud been doing some work.  Win. G. 'Buskin, of Penticton, Government engineer, was in this district  doing some work on the Ashnola the  latter part of last week.  Mr. and Mrs. Forsby and little  daughter .arrived from Siuinuerland  on Thursday last and have taken up  their residence on Mr. Graham's property, over whieh Mr- Forsby will have  the management.  We have been requested to direct  attention to the change -which is hiring made in the management of the  Hotel Keremeos, as shown in the advertising columns on this page. Mrs.  -Kit-by expects to leave Vancouver  about the 10th and on arrival here  will assume the management.  C. R. Little], an ex-Church of England clergyman in Manitoba and now  residing at- Armstrong, B.C., was in  Keremeos on Thursday last. He is  now representing the Confederation  Life insurance Company and while  here arranged with Mr. IL Gibson to  act as local representative.  J. A. Trimble and son \Y. O. of Vancouver were visitors in Keremeos last  week. Mr. Trimble has sold his property in Vancouver and is looking for a  place in which to make a home. He  was very favorably impressed with  the Lower Similkameen and stated  his intention of returning here to invest.  V. Dynes, travelling representative  of the Riverside Nurseries of Grand  Forks, passed through on Friday on  his way to his home at Penticton after  a trip to the Kootenay country. He  expects to return in a short time and  make a lengthy stay here examining  the condition of the Riverside stock  planted this season and seeing that  patrons of the Riverside nurseries are  entirely satisfied.  The work of painting the Keremeos  Church, f"i* which ample funds was  subscribed some time ago, has been  delayed. H. B. Meausette, who was  to have directed the work, found himself unable to do so owing to the rush  of other work and Mr. Buriiell of Fair-  view was unable to take on the job  owing to a- prior contract at Okanagan  Falls. On Monday,' however, Mr.  Cameron discovered a painter at Medley who was ready and willing to undertake the work and operations were  commenced on Tuesday.  The warm rain on Monday, which  continued with slight interruptions  for nearly 21 hours proved a boon to  the valley. Over two inches fell and  thoroughly saturated the ground,  making irrigation unnecessary for  some time. In the hills there was a  heavy fall of snow which will help to  provide a more bountiful supply of  water later on, when needed. In the  Siniilkamepn the rainfall always falls  short of being too much and it is al-  wavs welcome when it does come.  "The Quality Store"  x  Buying  clien p. flour to   ruin your, health for the-  sake of a few cents per sack is just the same as .standing on a plank tilted towards tlie sea, and swabbing it  with grease.

"It is not a bleached flour, but has that rich creamy  appearance akin to the golden grain from which it is made.  Beware of the merchant who will try sell you some other  brand of flour and tell you its just as good as "Five Roses" he is  only trying to get you to take a short cut to the "Bone Yard."  This is an age of efficiency and the people, all over the  world, are demanding high class goods.  Try a bug of Five Roses and if not pleased demsind your  money anel it will be waiting for you.  FRANK RICHTER & CO.  Keremeos Centre may or may not  be only'the suburb of Keremeos, but  certainly the*people in the upper town  are able to show their lower-down  friends the way of "doing things".  Last week while the people of the  iower town were considering holding  a meeting to begin to commence'-to  make arrangements to hold a 24th of  May celebration the Upper-ten had  their bills out and an attractive pro-  gramme of sports advertised. Two  separate celebrations are not to be  thought of so it behooves everybody  to lend n hand to make the celebration at the Centre as great a success  as possible.  News of the death of James Reith at  El Paso was received in the valley  with sincere regret last'Friday. Mr.  Reith was well and favorably known  here*, having been for years associated  with Harry Tweddle in the hotel business at the Centre in the earlier days.  It is nearly three years since he was  stricken with the disease, which at  last proved fatal and nothing but the  characteristic grit of the man could  have prolonged the struggle against  the grim reaper so long.
