Vancouver, April IS.���������Labor conditions in Vancouver may be radically  cbiingecl if the present agitation goes  on against Orientals. Following the  murder of a white: woman by a Chinese boy, public 'feeling-has (heen strong  against Asiatics. In private) houses,  where Chinese servants have been employed feir years, the Orientals have  been dischnrged and have been superseded by whitegirls. Some^of tliesinall-  er industrial concerns have abolished  the cheaper labor-anel installed while.  The question is a-live one before the.  city.council just now, when the motion'  wascarried that lumber te> be usee! by  the city,- and a* large anion ut is used,  be bought from lumber compa'niet-  that .employed no Orientals. Oriental  labor in the sawmills-has been one  of the chief feautures of labor conditions in connection with .the lumber  ministry, and the one lumber-company  in Vancouver that changed the. person-*  nel payroll a few day ago is now reaping a nice little harvest. The .lumber  manufacturers' official association entered a .strong protest against the  council's resolution.  .,  MORE "WHITE .LAliOR, AVAILABLE" -*  Employment of ./Asiatics hits*  been a  live and vital  question in British Columbia  for years.    It has  become so  much a part of the country that   it  will be   difficult,   even  if possible,   to  eradicate the'evil. The capitalist wishing to get a fair return  on lirs motley  is not  the only offender in  iilelizing  the cheaper labor,  but in  Ironies,   find  ga-elens, in  laundry work, in   restiiar-  ants,.in fact everywhere Ohiniise and  Japs  are   to   be   found.    Conditions,  though, are changing,  and if this  revulsion of feeling  does not'result "in  the overthrow of the Asiatic it will at  least   have pernarnent c-fl'eet.    White  labor "is*" nic>re "ao'uhclant-" than  a few  years ago, and   with  things as it has  been for.the past year or so it.is much  cheaper.   Then,  too, the government  is adopting  a policy of geUint? people  on to the land.    This will be providing  a substantial woi-king for a main part  of the  population from which will, be  drawn help for  all the; industries  that  rrniy.be established.    Oim cannot exist  without  the  other.    Industries   want  a market and can not afford to run any  risk for labor.  Living on the land will  be a class of people not very plentiful  on the coast as yet, but rapidly increasing, and from the farms  will come  a  sturdy stock that will  make  possible  a. truly white British Columbia.  Hedley Plays Return Game in that Town  on Sunday and Brings Back  the Bacon  On Sunday the Medley baseball team  accompanied by a -number of supporters made tho. journey to Princeton lo  play a return game in that town.  This time they reversed' the score of the  previous game winning by the score of  20 to 14. VThe game was played m the-  rain and hence the game was not up  to its usual standnrel as the ball was  wet and slippery and the grounds  being not a bit better many -errors  were chalked up that(would not have  been made had the day been better-.  Petrie occupied jthe mound for  Princeton and Waddell and Hertell  were doing the backslppping while W.  Corrigan arrd Robertson were.the bat-,  tery for Hedley. Hedley went to bat'  first and managed"'-to .get couple eif  rnirs across'thtv-.plat'e. In the second  half of the innings Princeton tied up  the score. In the see-ond the Hedley  boys went out in onp,'two; three order  and Princeton managed in their half  to get one run and take'the lend which  they did not hold long as in the third  the Hedley boys secured five runs,'  while Princeton was*-goose-egged. In  the next innings Hedley secured one  run while Princeton ^ie-corvecl two but  in the next*the locals1* again got a run  while Prinseton again received a  goose-egg. Princeton tied the score,  in the next.innings'wjierr they handed  a goose-egg 'to Heelley and secured  four runs in their turn at .bat. . The  next innings, the*' fatal seventh, Hedley  run irr seven runs by'gooel stick work  arrd Princeton tried!?hard to gain this  up but fell short by. three runs. In  the next two innings the Hedley boys-  gathered in four more runs-for good  measure while all that Princeton could  get "was one. The following is the  line-up and score of the two teams.

The tracks that were used  for the hauling of materials have all  be torn up and seune of the machinery  taken out.  The work em the rignt-of-way for  the ditch and flume is now being rushed along and already a large part of  this work is ready for the lumber.

A farmer does  not necessarily buy a cow because the  price is low, he wants quality; in this  case quality may be interpreted to  mean dairy capacity, or ability to  produce plenty of good milk. If he  does not purchase, possibly the heifer-  coming into milk has been raised at  rather to high a cost so that her dairy  quality is impaired. She may not be  of the'rightstock, that is, from a dam of  deep milking qualities and a sire of  known ability, and. all may have suffered from lack of the right feed.  The other part of the   value side  of  every dairy cow,   that is,  what you  get from her, is right in the dairyman's  own hands.   He can easily determine  each cow's value, or dairy quality, by  keeping individual  records of production.    Then if ho wishes to part with  a good cow, her selling price isenchanc-  eel  hy reason  of that   certificate   of  value, her record, which  helps  to fix  the price.    Right  buying  is  true economy; the factory patron   with the  highest conception of value will  buy,  or raise, right,  and will know, by his  own simple records  that each cow in  the herd seperately, not averaged in a  lump, fits  his ideal of value.   Fix a  good standard,   make each cow pay.  Milk and  feed record forms are supplied free by the Dairy Commissioner,  Ottawa.  Waddell "catcher -       Robertsem  Hughy right field     J.

"The  necessity for the second ���������clause of the  sentence,'' he added, "lies irr the fact  that in some previous, bumper years  the hugeness of the fruit crop did not  mean big returns for the growers.  Some-times it' meant loss owing to  glutted markets, which did not pay a  return i'or the cost of picking and  pad irig and -marketing tlie crop.  "I have '.never- yet seen much evidence of a big fruit crop since I have;  been in the province," saiel the fruit  inspector. :������������������ "It is .not.only' oiie fruit  or one district but the reports from  every district are to the c-lt'ect that all  the fruits, promise to give a record  crop this-year.-'"  As a result of the marketing organizations  brought  into  being   through  the assistance of the Provincial government  last year, "there  is  now   no  danger,of a  glutting of  the  market.  Previously the fruit had all been shipped to two'or three points, where congestion  occurred,   leaving^^ large markets untouched.     "For instance," declared Mr. Cunningham,   "in order' to  arrange for marketing 1 went to Leth-  bridge, Alta.,  Inst year,     Lethbridge  is a fine city anel serve's a fine ter-ritory  in the distribution of fruit.    I went to  all   the wholesale  dealers there, anel I  could not find a single- piece of British  Columbia fruit.    There was fruit from  Washington, Oregon, California, Utah  Wyoming and South Dakota,   but rrot  one box of fruit  from the neighboring  province  of British  Columbia.     That  sort   of  thing   was   taking   place   in  many of the  large   prairie towns and  cities.     Now,   the fruit will be sent to  scores of centres  of distribution, and  the  shipments  will   be -controlled  to  suit   the state  of the  markets  in   the  various places.     Thus,   not only will  the consumer be able to look forwarel  to a good fruit, crop  this year, bub tho  growers will be able   to. reap the benefit of nature's bounty .and   their own  care of cultivation.'*  James McCormick and Thos. Pritchard met. an untimely death early yesterday morning while working at the  Rawhide .mine near town, being asphyxiated by powder gas after-setting  oil' a blast. The bodies "of the two  men were found within ten feet of the  face of the drift by the morning-shift  going to work. They were removed  to the- undertaker's, where they will  rejst until funeral arrangements are  iiinde. The two men were "working on  the night shift, arid after blasting before ceiining off shift, it.is presumed  they went hack in to see-, how the; holes  broke, as is fie-quentlydono by miners,  and weie oveicome by gas.  ...McCormick has been in Phoenix  about five years, and has been employed practically all of the time at the  Rawhide ami Granby mines, arid for  tlie past two years was shift boss at  the Rawhide. He was about 35 years  af age and married. ��������� He was a member of Phoenix Aerie No. 158, Fraternal Order of Eagles": He was a native  .eif-Michigan.

It is officially announced here that outside  of completing the main line into Port  Mann, the most important undertaking of the company will be the construction of a branch line from Kamloops into the fruit districts of the  Okanagan, Vancouver is to have a  C. N. R. head official with considerable authority.  The possibilities for trade expansion,  wliich the completion of the Panama  Canal will give the British Columbia,  lumbermen, are emphasized by the  recent announcement, that the "Robert Dollar", the largest lumber cargo  boat in the Pacific service, will-be the  first boat to take shipments of timber,-  from, this province to the eastern markets.  Lumber men   in   this    province   are  showing  themselves alive  to the geographical  and strategical advantages  they possess by engaging in an active  campaign   to.make known' the resources and timber rnanufactiiriesand they  expect the  big lumberman's  parade,  planned  in connection   with the Pacific Ceiast Ad Men's Convention   to be  held in Vancouver in June, to play a  'prominent   part   in-this   connection.  British Columbia's rivals  freely admit that the ope-ning of  the Panama  Canal  will give a big impetus  to the  timber trade  in   this   province.     The  American  shipping-, laws give  vessels  plying eiut of Canadian ports a decided  advantage.      The   following    extract  from an article,  one of a series entitled   "The    Panama Canal  anel   Lumber,"  published in a recent number of  "The New   York   Lumber   Journal."  summarized  the   situation   as   it impresses the outside observer.  "Miu-li   has    been   said   about   the  monopoly created and  fostered by the  restrictions    of    coastwise    tiade     to  American vessels,  and one might suppose  that these  restricted laws would  greatly stimulate the construction of  American-built ships  in   view  of the  Canal  commerce,  and   that  thus  the  problem of sufficient tonnage for lumber  to the  east coast  would "reach a  satifactory solution.    What such laws  may do for the coastwise traffic generally we are rrow discussing,   but as far  as lumber is  concerned,   this  desired  result is rrot likely to be soon realized.  Any advantage these laws apparently  give to American vessels is nullified by  other   laws   which   entail   additional  cost in the building,   manning and operating of American vessels; and if a  commodity like lumber- can  be purchased on neighboring foreign soil at  the same price as the domestic product  it   stands  to   reason   that  vessels   of  other nations will load there and bring  their cargoes into the United States,  against which there is no local restriction.

Railroad  stocks are no longer attractive speculatively both because of the collapse of  the securities of several of the leaders  arrd because of the activities of politicians anel professional agitators. The  downfall ,of "so many of the -so called  good-will-reompsinfes gave, a ehecft to  .the interest in industrials, and it appears that mining stocks are about the  ���������'only class of issues that have not received several severe body blows in  the last three or four years.  "Curb  traders report that there is  an interest and activity iir the outside  * mining stocks such ns ' have not bei n  irr evidence before in the last four  years. The 1907 panic put a check to  the wild gamble in mining stocks that  .preceeded that crash, but the specula-  * tive public is regaining its courage  and is now nibbling strongly.  "���������Another    mining.    boom     would  .noubtless be accoupanied by the usual  outpouring   of   worthless   securities,  * but the public is educated by observation and bitter experience, and it is  doubtful if the promoters of 'rotten'  stocks will.ever be able to flim-flam  investors ns in the past."  Along the same line,  the Victoria  Colonist says:  "Everything indicates a great revival of interest in mining in British  Columbia. Some months ago, quoting  Sir Richard MoBride, we said that  many things pointed in that direction,  notably the rapidly increasing output  of existing mines. Events are bearing  out this forecast. In view of this the  people of the province have a clear-  line of eluty before them, and it is to  avoid lending their names to wild-cat  schemes. Incalculable harm was done,  at the time of the great Kootenay  boom, by the flotation of all sorts of  properties, and the sale of stocks in  companies with hardly as much as a  hole in the ground to represent their  assets;  It may be saiel that when a person is  offered a dollar share for five cents, he  knows he is taking a chance of losing  what he pays out, for if there was any  reason to think the share would be  worth a dollar within any reasonable  time, no person would sell it for five  cents. This' is. true enough, and if  such, transactions could be confined to  the original vendor and the original  purchaser,  no very great amount of  harm woulel be done;1 but they e-annot  be so confined.  "In ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, a man who buys a dollar share  eif mining stock for five cents ��������� has not  the least expectation of ever getting a  dividend out of it. His hope is to  make a profit of selling it to seimcone-  else-, 'file', wild-cat promotor knows  this and he- baits his" hook ace-enelingly  He tells how the value of other slocks  has rise-it arrd then he goes on to say  that at a certain date-the price of his  shares will be advanced. The purchaser sens a chance of turning over  his shares in a short time at the 'advanced price* and bites at the bait. Ill  other cases fictitious; sales are employed as a means to put up the price.  "All this is very eleiui-nlary, anel we  emly mention it because as thi> stock  gambling frateinity says, there is a  fool horn every minute, wliich is a  pie-turesepie way of saying thai there  are- always a leit of people who are  sure that the-y can beat the other man  at his own game.  "The press ought to be on its f>uaiel.  In a way it is the custodian of the  reputation of the country, but. often  in its anxiety te> print what seems to  be news,it gives piomineiie-e to alleged  dise-overie-s. r't is hard tei know just  where to draw the line. For some  yeais The Colonist has drawn it so far  afield that many persons have thought  that ihey had a genuine grievance be-  e-anse- lln-y were re-fusi-d publicity for  what they honestly believed were  valuable finds of mineral or oil. Nevertheless, we have never as yet found  any reason to regret having declined  to publish matter calculated to give  impeirtance to nlle-j-reel eliscoveries.

Before him stretched a vista  of sloping fields anil level meadow  lands already taking on a hopeful  green in the mellow warmth of the  early spring sunshine.  0. P. Trevor was enjoying it all im-  niens'ely.' The air was soft and balmy;  the sunshine warmed his blood, and,  best of ell, lie was possessed of the  pleasing sense of duty done, for the  last corrected proof sheets of Iris latest  technical work on antennae had been  returned to the publishers, and at present there was nothing to do but idle  on this rickety fence anel drink in the  glories of the clay.  It had created considerable stir in  this little community when the eminent  young naturalist had decided to tarry-  here awhile and rest from his arduous  labors on antennae. A number' of women socially ambitious had arranged a  round of receptions and teas in his  honor, but these delicate attentions he  deftly and politely evaded by quoting  his physician's orders for absolute rest.  It was a happy thought to armor himself thus with physician's orders before  sotting out. lie smiled grimly as ho  pulled his battered old hat over his  eyes. Rather a clever bit of strat-jgy,  he concluded.- It effectually did away  with the lionizing and left him free to  dally in the courts of his beloved nature. He blew a great cloud of smoke  and watched it trail away indolently.  Suddenly his whole bearing changed  from one of idle repose to alert attention. Ho pushed up the hat; he  took the pipe' from his mouth; he  leaned forward perilously on the fence  and listened eagerly.  "No," he muttered, frowning in perplexity the while. "No, it can't he."  Then he listened again.  "It is," ho declared. "As I'm a living sinner, that's a scarlet tanager.  Phenomenal���������most phenomenal. . What  on earth is the little beggar doing as  far north as this?"  The plaintive, piping notes came  from a clump of trees far down the  field, and that his eyes might prove the  theorem his ears had suggested Ogden Patterson Trevor slid -from the  fence and started cautiously forward'  to investigate. He bird traversed  scarce half the distance to the trees  when a small bird rose from the  branches and flew to another tree some  distance away.  "Amazingly like a scarlet tanager,"  the   pursuer   ejaculated,    "amazingly  so!"    And, being a man of some de- -  termination, O. P. settled down to the  chase.  And the chase was a merry one. The  man would be almost near enough to  the bird's latest resting place to determine surely whether or not it was a  tanager, when away the provoking bit  of feathers would fly, with Ogden  Patterson Trevor arrd his innumerable  alphabetical distinctions iu hot pursuit. He followed the flight across  the open fields ami through the bram-  bly underbrush of a clump of woods;  he wallowed through an alder swamp  full of hummocks, and one of the hummocks was treacherous and sent him  sprawling into a pool of muddy water.  He lost his pipe and tore the rim half  off the battered hat, but with unflagging zeal he followed the flight of the  elusive bird.  Now, on the other side of the swamp  was a sloping garden back of a substantial house, and in tho garden was  a .pear tree, and in the pear tree the  bird alighted. The tired, perspiring,  disheveled naturalist saw tho bird  light on the branch, and he started  cautiously thither, worming his way  up.the slope flat on his stomach. Carefully he worked himself to within a  few rods of the pear tree whore the  bird was still perched. He lifted his  head from tho surrounding grass, took  a long look in the direction of the  pear tree and smiled beutilically. .  "It is a scarlet* tanager!'" he exclaimed, with unbounded satisfact.on.

"Of all  thieves a sneak thief is t'.:o lD".vo.-.t and  meanest. If you wore hungry, "���������"������������������"hy  eiidu't you come to the kitchen? You'd  have been fed for the asking."  Trevor drew himself up. "I wasn't  after your garden truck," he said hotly.  "I suppose." saiel the girl, with cutting sarcasm, "you were taking a stroll  for your health and that vour manner  '.'t approach Is yonr usual method of  taking a constitutional."  "I was following a bird," said he,  >vith a dignity that his appearance rendered futile.  The girl's merry laughter rung out at  this. She held lior sido with one hand,  and the revolver wabbled about absurdly in the other.  "Following a bird!" she tittered. "For  that choice bit of originality I've half a  mind to let you go. So poetic too! I  suppose you follow birds the year  round."  Trevor fished in his pockets and by  good luck came across a card, a card  with the full alphabetical display after  his name.  "Your surmise is quite correct," ho  said coldly and scaled the card so that  it fell at her feet.  She picked irp the card and read it.  Trevor saw her start and heard her little exclamation of dismay. She glanced  quickly at the man standing before her.  Something in his face and bearing confirmed  the  bit of pasteboard in her  hands.   Her face went scarlet, and she  dropped the revolver.  "Oh," she gasped���������"oh!"  Slie turned and fled toward the house,  with Trevor following her ami shouting:  "I say!   Oh, but I say!"  *        *        * +     *      *        ������  Ogden Patterson Trevor, with innumerable letters of tlie alphabet attached to his name and possessed of fellowships in innumerable dignified societies  on both sides of the Atlantic, sat on the  top rider of the same rickety fence. Beside him sat his bride. A seraphic smile  lighted his intellectual face as he put  out his arm and drew the girl to him.  "It was here the chase began," he explained.  He looked thoughtfully across the vista of sloping fields and level meadow-  lands. - 5  "And to think I should have mistaken it for a scarlet tanager when it was  the messenger of Cupid!", he,chuckled.
