WINKLER,     Proprietor, g  The, Royal Commission on , Indian  affairs spent Monday a nil Tuesday of  this week in Hedley in connection with  its province-wide tour of observation  and investigation of reserves land  matters.  This commission is coin posed of Hon.  E. L. Wettnore, former chief justice of  Sackatchewan, chairman; Dr. J. A. .T.  McKenna ' and Mr. Nathaniel W.  White, JK. C", representing'the-Dominion, and Messrs. J. P. Shaw, M.  P. P. of Shnswup and Day H. Mae-  Dowall of Victoria, representing the  Province. Mi;. C. H. Gihbons of Victoria is secretary, and the commission  on their Okanagan visitations are accompanied hy Inspector T. J. Commis-  key and Agent J. R. Brown, district  officials of the Department of Indian  affairs.  The appointment of this joint federal  and provincial commission has for its  object primarily the termination of  cententions between the two governments which have long prevailed over  Indian land matters and the establishment of fixed conditions with respect  tothe Indian reserves in British Co-;  j u tit hi a tip pro x i.m a ti n g thos e ,0 b tai n in g  iii the. eastern provinces of the 'Dominion. The Commission is required to  visit all reserves in the .province, ascertain the conditions obtaining on  each, and determine whether the lands  alloted are reasonably sufficient for  the requirements of the Indians, unduly large or insufficient. If the former the reserve will be permanently confirmed; if additional lands are found to  be fairly nece*ssary for the requirements of the Indians they will he added by the Commission, thu province  undertaking to provide requisite areas  out of the unalienated crown lands of  British Columbia.  If the reserves   are  found   unduly  large, the Commission will recommend  the extent of reduction,  but the consent of the Indians is made a requisite  to any cutting off.   Such consent being obtained,   the,cut-off lands are to  be sold at auction, one half of the net  proceeds going  to-the  Province  and  the other half to the-,Indians in cash.  Upon   the final  report of the Commission  title in all reserves in B. C  will  be conveyed to the Dominion government in trust for tlie Indians, and the  local government  will cease  to exercise or claim  any interest in  Indian  lands, save and except in the event of  a    tribe  or   band   becoming   extinct,  when the reserve lands  will revert to  the province.  The unification of jurisdiction and  ownership is expected to greatly improve the machinery of administration, to tho advantage of the Indians  and all others concerned.  The Commission since its formal  inauguration in mid-May last has  visited all the reserves in the Cowich-  an, Bella Ooola, Queen Charlotte and  Okanagan agencies, inspecting upwards of one hundred reserves ��������� arid  holding almost as many meetings with  the Indians. From here the party  proceeded to Princeton on Tuesday  afternoon, the intention being to proceed thence by motor to Merritt and  on   to Kamloops  next week.  Conditions as to the reserves in this  vicinity were the subject of evidence  taken at a meeting held on Monday  afternoon when both the Ashnola and  Ohu-chu-way-ha tribes presented their  case, application being made in each  case for additional range land, in extent approximating something over  270,000 acres. Chief John Ashnola, and  Alexis Skeuce were the principal  spokesmen    and    witnesses    for   the  According lo.an-Ottawa dispatch to  New York large .increases in exports  to the United States of the ptincipal  Canadian commodities affected by the  United States tariff hill are confidently expected by ,tiie department of  Trade and Commerce and Customs.   ���������  There are signs .that in all the lines  of production .to .be effected by the  new tariff extensive preparations are  being made to take" the fullest advan-  tage of the changes. This is especially  noticeable in live-stock, meats, hay,  coal,'fish, and in some lines of nianu-  i'acutrrs. The t-rad^ figures of the first  five months of the/h'scal yi*ar���������up to  September 1st���������arc(0nt today and they,  show great increases. Canadian exports during August broke all records.  Total imports and ..exports for August  were $97,743,581. a .gain of nearly $8,-  000,000 over August'; 1912. Exports of  agricultural products in August ���������  nearly all to.the. United States���������wen;  $1S,000.000, a gam/of $5,000,000 over  August last year, .while the total exports for August��������� mostly to tlie United States���������wete $01,000,000, a gain of  $9,000,000 over August, 1912. For the  five months' period ended August 31,  the total of imports and exports was  $-1-50,023,107, compiired with $418,658,-  748 for the same period last year.

Cattle,and hay buyers are  specially active for exports to the Buffalo,   New York and Boston' markets.

In  the maritime provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia a revival of selling to the New England States, especially of fish, lumber,- coal and agricultural products, is foreshadowed by  present activities. 7  CHATEAlICllAi  813-1913  A BIG UNTERTAKING  Borden's   Candidate   Carries  Constituency in Quebec  WIS LIBERiLllNCE 18W  Hon. Sidney Fisher, ex-Minister, Goes  Down to Defeat ��������� French Liberal  Papers Urged the Cry "No Contribution," But the French Canadian  Followed Borden as He Followed  Salaberry.  It was on October 25th, 1813. that  the French Canadian militia followed  uolonel de Salaberry with his 800  British regulars in repelling an assault  of the United States army under  General Hiynpton. The loyalty and  valor they displayed on that occasion  cannot be praised Loo highly. On  Saturday^ hist, Oct. 11, 1913, another  valorous service for the cause of Empire was performed when the. men of  Chati'.-mguay turned clown the race  cry and refused to skulk to the tune  of "No Contribution" fiddled by the  French Canadian Liberal and Nationalist papers.  An ex-Minister, Hon. Sidney Fisher  was the Laurier candidate hub a local  Conservative standard-bearer, James  Morris, beat him by a majority of 144  in a vote of over ninety percent of  the electorate.  Sir Wilfrid Laurier himself was in  the riding assisted by his former colleagues. Lemieux and Graham, and  the whole nationalist hue and cry.  The successful candidate did not hesitate to give his opinion that the result was to be interpreted in no other  way than as unqualified expression of  approbation vqf. Borden's7 policy., .bot-h  as ''regards' the -"navy" aiid 'the^'trade'  question.   7  WORK ON OREGON CLAIM  Hedley Gold Mining Company's  Plan  to  Develop 'Power on Similkameen  ^���������'���������aK'3 >t,?' .   x.  jc -. -''.        . \  ':'Notwithstanding  that   the   Hedley  'Gold Mining Co.". li'ad the.-gaff thrown  into tlie iii, pVetby'strongo'in'the exces-  sitfi'V figure, demanded.

There  a fore-bay   will  deliver  the water  by  means of a penstock-on   a fall of over  70 feet to a power station  on the river  a little below the sawmill site-and there  electric power will be generated which  will   be'transmitted   by poles  to  the  works.  : _^^.���������.   EMPIRE NATURALIZATION  British Citizenship to  be Valid  all Over  the Empire  Ashnola's and Bertie Allison, a broth  er of the late chief, presented the case  for the Chii-chu-way-ah's.  In reference to; the two burning  local questions in> which the Hedley  Gold Mining Co. and the Hedley Golf  Club were severally interested, the  Commission felt that it scarcely came  within the scope of their work, but  was what they called "departmental"  and as such should first come before  the Indians themselves and have their  consent, after which the Commission  would have no objection to grant their  recommendation.  The resquest of thecompany was for  right-of-way for a fiume and pipeline  through  about 14,000. feet of   Indian  reservation, the greater part of which  was   worthless   rocky   side   hill   and  mountain talus.     The ditch moreover  would  render valuable  to the Indians  about eight acres,of dry bench land  that is now practically worthless for  cultivation  without   water,   and   the  company's scheme . involved the building of a  bridge costing about $0,000  which   would give, to the Indians access to the land   which the ditch made  valuable and without a cent of cost to  the Indians.     The demand  made first  was for $4000 for the  permission and  right-of-way    and    afterwards    they  agreed to accept $1000 with the exception of Charlie Squakim  who wanted  $300 additional  for going through 2h  acres of a dry bench belonging to him.  The term specified was 25 years.  The Golf Club were also given permission to use the links on the reservation for a term of 25 years on payment of $50 per annum. The club also  agreed to assist the Indians in keeping the fence up and anyone who attempts to take liberties with the fence  or break in will have to reckon with  Golf Club as well as with the Indians.  The use of the links was also tendered  I)3r tho club to the Indians should any  of them wish to take up the game.  At the last session held by the Commission on Tuesday, Steve and Don-  nell of the reservation at Bromley's  applied to. the Commission for an addition of 10,000 acres of pasture land  adjoining the reserves at present occupied by them.  The Gazette  was shown this week a  sample of dyke matter taken from anew  dyke lately encountered in development  The crosscut southward from the face  of the Bahrs tunnel has now advanced  a distance of over seventy  feet'from  the.former- and the dyke, matter encountered is very silicious, with chei-ty  appearance save that the  texture has  more of the coarse feel of quartzite than  that common to true chert.    But  the  most     interesting    feature-  of     the  specimen  is  the plentiful   sprinkling  through it of phenocrysts    of   some  other hard   substance  with   resinous  lustre which it would require a little  qualitative  work with  the  blow-pipe  to determine, but might be tourmaline  or some other hard silicate.    Some of  them where the fracture of the specimen is along  the  crystal show lath-  shaped, but most of them  are  broken  across and on the fracture they exhibit  the  same canchoidal  fracture as  the  ground mass  of chert.    These white  dykes in a mineral country are always  entitled to respect and it is hoped that  in this  case  the  occurrence presages  nearness to the ore body.  A change has been made in the direction of the drift to more fully investigate the import of this dyke and  work will go on for a while to enable  the owners to size up the situation in  reference* to further work.  The Owasco about two and a half  miles from Oroville has entered the  producing list. It is not yet being  operated on a large scale but a ten  stamp mill is turning out gold bricks  and development is being kept ahead  of the milling. There is reported to  be a vein from four to eight feet wide  between smooth walls and much of  the ore runs over $100 to the ton.  An aerial tramway is being installed  on the Aufeas mine near Hope.  Work in the mine has been suspended  pending the installation of the tram, as  there is no room at the mouth of the  tunnel to store ore. An option given  last winter to English capitalists for  the purchase of 300,000 shares of the  stock i.s being taken up and with the  installation of the aerial tram regular  shipments are to begin.  Hon Herbeit Saniu.-;1 the British  Postmaster-general who has been  touring Canada announced in Montreal  that he was bent upon a change of the  law at present effecting naturalization  in Gt. Britain by which the right of  citizenship acquired in any part of the  British Empire would he* made to hold  good in every other part of the  empire.  "When I last had the pleasure of  meeting Sir Thomas Shaughnessy."  said Mr. Samuel, "he spoke of the  need of improving, the laws relating  to naturalization in the dominionsand  in the mother cohntry.-and--.'of;.:sec.'iu"r  ing ;*. greater ������������������uniformity in-oiirSiattir--  alization laws. And surely it is as unreasonable and indeed an improper  thing, that a man may be naturalized  and be regarded as a British subject  in one portion of the empire, only to  find if he travels to some other part  and settles there, he is regarded as  an alien without the rights of imperial citizenship. It has Jong been  my desire, and it has been advocated  after imperial conference that there  should be some greater measure of uniformity anel that we should throughout the empire lay down the principle  that a man who is a British citizen  anywhere in the empire should he a  British citiren everywhere in the empire.    (Applause.)  There  have   been long negotiations  between the various governments concerned in this subject and I am happy  to be in a position to announce to you  today after communicating', with the  imperial government   at   home   that  those negotiations  are now ended and  a bill has been drafted and is now in a  form  generally agreed  upon between  the governments in all portions of the  empire for the establishment  of a uniform imperial naturalization, and that  the imperial government hopes to be  able to  introduce that hill in the next  session of the imperial parliament and  to find an early opportunity of placing  it upon   the  statute books of  the empire.    Our government is  anxious indeed  to   take every opportunity,   not  indeed of intc-rfeience  in the domestic  concerns  of the  various   states   that  make up our  empire,  for  the-day of  Downing street   interference   is long  ago  past, but it  is desirous of taking  every opportunity of conciliation with  the  autonomous  governments of the  dominions in carrying out every measure which will conduce lo the greater  unity of our empire."    (Applause.)  Earl Grey, the former Governor-  general of Canada, is backing up Sir  Edward Carson in his opposition to  Home Rule. The Earl's knowledge of  the working of the Canadian constitution has shown him how unpractical  the Home Rule bill i.s. If the Home Rule  bill had been on the same lines as the  Canadian constitution Earl Grey says  he would support it but it is not.  Ralph Smith has propounded the  political scheme of a union between  Liberals and Socialists of Birtish Columbia as the only means by which the  McBride government may be destroyed anel is not very sanguine whether  even that coalition would effect the  end sought.

In the first place it was ocular  demonstration .of how Mr. Borden redeemed his' pledges.    For years with a  Liberal adniinstration  at Ottawa and  a Conservative government  in British  Columbia, the question of., the tenure.',  of Indian  lands in   this province  was  made   a  foot-ball  and  no   settlement  could be obtained.    The people of British Columbia were even tolel by those  whom they had elected to the Dominion House  that they must electa government in this province   that was acceptable   to   Sir   Wilfrid   Laurier or  there  would lie no  settlement of the  Songhees   or   any   other   reservation  question, hut Mr. Borden when leader  of the Opposition   promised that if his  party'were* placed in power at Ottawa,  steps   would   he   taken   to   arrange a  basis  of settlement  which   would   be  fair and just to the Indians on the one  hand, who were wards  of the  Dominion, and Lo the Province of British Columbia on the other.  The question is a deep  one and for  our  present  purposes no attempt will  be  made  to  discuss  it on   its  merits  here.     Suffice it to say that the Royal  Commission who have just honored us  with a. visit in their official capacity is  an advanced   step in   fulfilment of the  promise    which   Mr.    Borden    made.  Without more than a mere passing reference to the functions and powers of  the Royal Indian Commission than is  set'fui th   in the report of the visit in  another  column we  may safely claim  that the personnell of this Commission  is   abundant  evidence of   the  candor  with which the promise was made and  the.    honesty    and   earnestness   with  which   Mr. Borden   means  to carry it  out.     For the head of the Commission  a man   was chosen   from the Supreme  Court   of  a    western   province   other  than  JJriti.-h Columbia  which was an  iifterested   party  and   the  choice   fell  upon   Chief Justice  E. L. Wetmore of  Saskatchewan whose reputation as an  eminent jurist  is well known in western   Canada.    The  secretary is Mr. J.  G.   H.   Bergeron  an   eminent   parliamentarian  from the  province of Quebec   who is  generally admitted  in all  parts  of the  Dominion   to  be cabinet  timber, and but for the fortunes of war-  would  now  he one of Mr.   Borden's  colleagues in   the   Federal   Ministry.  The two men to represent the Domin  ion are Dr. ,T. A. J. McKenna and N.  W. White, K. C. The-former from his  long association with the Indian Department enjoys the distinction of being the best posted .mail in Canada on  Indian affairs and is the Indians'best  friend, while the latter will look after  the constitutional feature of the question. Mr. ������������������ McBride on his part saw  that the. province was well repi esent-  ed by Mr. James McDowall.nf .Victoria  and Mr. J. P. Shaw, M.P.P. of Shus-  wa p.  On this occasion Mr. Bergeron was  not present but his duties were being  ably pel formed by Mr. CM. Gibbons  ol' Victoria, well-known in B.C. journalism for the past 25 years.  The task which they have undertaken of vi-iting evei y reservation in  the province, meeting the Indians personally and away from the whites  who aie excluded from the Indian  meetings���������thus obtaining definite firsthand information to enable them to  asceitain conditions as they exist, is  no light one, and it is being faithfully  performed. Whatever Lheir reports  and recommendations may be, when  the task   is completed it is a verv sure  y  thing that it will be thorough and just-  U  and..in the   best   interests  of all  concerned.  We. have several times thought what,  a pity it was that Pauline Johnson  was called away when she was needed  most. What a service a brainy woman  like her, full of love for her own  people, could have performed by going  among them and explaining to them  the pitfalls that lie in their way; and  the greatest pitfall of all i.s that which  they demand of money payments in  full for lands which they may part  with.

Schubert went to Victoria last  week o'n a business trip.  ��������� Thanksgiving Day on Monday next.  Do your' shopping on   the  Saturday  ���������before for 'everyhody expects a holiday that day.  H. IT. Messenger secured a fine deer  ���������on Sunday which places' him pretty  ���������well on the way towards securing his  complement.  ��������� Mr.II. D. Brown of Toronto in whose  interests Mr. Poirer i\L E. i.s making  cxiiniiiation of the Golden Zone arrived in Hedley on Tuesday and yesterday he went out to the property.  The. levelling on the rink is now  pretty well finished and with a little  trimming and the erection of the fence  will he ready for the frost. ' The club  has now a good healthy membership  ��������� and all are looking forward to a rare  winter's sport.  The licence of the Princeton hotel  in Princeton is heing transferred'froni  P. Swanson to Swanson and Broom-  field. A. D. Brootnfield who is the  new licensee was married recently in  Spokane and brought his bride in a  "little over a week ago.  Boh Plamill who has been in charge  ���������of central station for several yeais  met witli an accident in which he has  experienced hack strain which necessitated a lay-off. He went to Spokane  last week and is being relieved at the  central by "W. Corrigan.  A dance was held in the P'raternity  hall on Thursday night last, the object being to secure funds to obtain  ���������equipment for basket-ball, for the  playing of which a club is to be organ  ized in Hedley. There was a good  crowd at the dance and a- good time is  reported.  As an auxiliary to the raising of  funds for building an addition to the  church for Sunday school purposes to  "^^provide accommodation for the infant  class,it has peen .decided to give a play  abou); the end of this month and practice isX.po.v-.- heing held to that end.  .Further particulars will be given later-.  In the downpour of rain on Friday  last a couple of four-horse freight outfits that were evidently part of some  railway contractor's plant, drove into  Hedley towards "evening..;' They were  evidently on their way from the Okanagan to, so nie'. of the '.'.camps. 'iip":-the:  Tulameen;'arid did'.hot" "think* it worthwhile to incur the delay and trouble  of transferring to rail. for the short  distance up the valley.  The continuous rain on Thursday  night last and all day Friday had the  usual effect of starting rock and earth'  movements on the mountain side and  that is the time when the flume suffers., This happened to be no exception to the. rule and on Friday evening  a slide took out a. section and a half  to be followed by another about half  an hour later which howled out another four sections. All hands weie  put to work on the repair-son Saturday morning and the water was on  lutein the afternoon.  Mr. I. L. Merrill, president of the  Hedley Gold Mining Co., arrived in  Hedley on Tuesday. He expects to  have a busy time for"a week or more  in connection with mine developments  and the power question which will be  gone into pretty thoroughly. Incidentally too, he brought his golf clubs  along, but in veiw of the various  trophies he has annexed it would he  hard now to find players in Hedley  who can give him a sufficiently interesting game without a  big  handicap.  Jack Corrigan and Bob came back  last week from their trip to Hope  and the coast. During their absence  they attended the fairs at Westminster and Victoria. Jack Lyall was  with thoin hut was waylaid at Princeton on his wav back by F. P. Cook  who requires his services for a few  weeks. The trip was made over tho Hope  trail both ways and while they intended to do a little hunting anil fishing  hy the way they found game very  scarce and the fish were not biting  worth a cent.  ��������� Mrs. F. H. French has to her credit  a physical vi'i*at that most of the tiii'ii  do not care about tackling and no  woman about Hedley but herself has  ever attempted. The feat was climbing the Sixteen Mile Creek trail to the  Oregon claim and coming back down  again the same afternoon. For steepness it is one of the most trying trails  in the valley and to make the tramp  from the wagon road at Charlie Allison's an altitude of between 3500 and  ���������1000 feet has to be overcome. On Saturday afternoon last she accompanied  her husband on the trip rip to the  claim where development work is still  being carried on. They went down to  the Allison ranch in the auto and from  there the climb began.  A .card received from L. W. Shatford M. P. P. after we had gone to  press last week, was written by him  from Vienna where he had reached  after a long auto trip through the  heait of Europe front Beilin. It was  over historic ground every" foot of  which is rich in incident both in history and literature and as such is the  property not only of one nation hut of  all. ft was, as good Milton himself  would put it, to pass twixL "Rhone  and thoDanaw." From Vienna he was  going lo Home and from there to .Mediterranean points, and some time this  month lie. will take ship again for  Canada.  Last Thursday Robt. Boyd found an  odd. bird up on the hill-side above the  slime  pond.    It could  not get out of  his way and was  easily  caught.      ft  was of the diver species but not nearly as  large as the- loon  and got up on  finer lines and answered more nearly  the description of the grebe  than  other divers, for it had the long slender neck of the curlew and long needle  pointed bill,   but had the short posteriorly  placed  legs of the regular hell-  diver of the duck species so well known  on the lakes and streams of B. C.   The  toes  were not  web-foot but in separate  lobes      The head was black with  the"-feathers    coming   to   two   angle  points on either side and the black extended down   the   back of   the   long  slender ' neck   while   the   breast   and  throat were white and not ringed like  the loon.     The neck was fully from S  to 10 inches  long and  not more than  about half an inch in  diameter at the  thinnest point.    How  it happened to  stray tip   to   the  point where it was  found i.s the query.     It'did not appear  t> he hurt  nor in pain    but was quite  lively, only it seemed to be deprived of  or  to have forgotten  all it had ever  learned of land locomotion.     It died a  couple of clays later.    So rare a species  .should, be  stuffed and   kept for   tiie  Provincial  museum   unless   they are  stocked up with them already.   ���������  The hunting season always sees the  usual crop of gun accidents and most  of them are the result of carelessness.  It was thought that the imposition of  a gun.licence would cut out a good few  of those from whom the most danger  was to be feared, but apparently there  are some in possession of licences who  are not; sufficiently r-esponsihle to be  allowed in^ the hills  "yyith , rifles.,   An  example  of this  was seen a week ago  hist Sunday- when  George Cahill came-  near being killed hy some scatter-brain  hunter.    He was at work on his ranch  when he was made aware of the proximity of a gunman  by having  some  bullets whizziug about his ears. Some  one had got a glimpse of him through  the  brush  and taking him for a deer  began blazing away.     He dropped on  the ground at once and shouted  lint  no  attention   was paid and  the shots  continued.     Whoever it was the careless huntsman evidently found at once  that he had  been shooting at a  man  instead of a. deer and made off,  being  careful   to   take   the  cartridges   with  him,  for when  the   spot   where   the  shots  were coming from was examined, the tracks were seen where he had  been  shooting but no  cartridge shells  were left to give a clue.     Careless ex*  citable  brutes like that  have no right,  to be allowed a license and if it can be  found  out who the  man was   the licence he holds should be cancelled.

The Royal Commission of ...Indian  affairs, who are making a tour of the.  Province to enable them to collect  evideuce on and of every Indian reserve, so as to be able to made a full report at a later date paid a visit to  Keremeos. The' party arrived at  Keremeos Centre on Saturday evening  staying at the Central Hotel over the  week end, going on to'Hediey on Monday the 13th.  Gordon Pyne, driver of Tweddle's  auto, encountered a wild storm on his  way over to Penticton on Friday  evening last. There were eight inches  of snow on the summit and for about  1.4. miles they were continually running  into trees blown down across the i*oad.  They got through to Penticton, but  very late owing to the repeated delays.  On Saturday night a big lock lossened  by the rain came down into the canyon and cut Oft' a tree about two feet  through.  Pete Bromley and family have moved to their old home at the Centre.  All in the lower town will greatly miss  the family for they have been in the  town for the past five years always  helping things along and making  things cheery all the time for others.  As Pete sold out his blacksmith business and good will to Mr.Madore of  Coalniont some two months ago, he  of course, does not intend to start any  opposition whatever in that line.  The committee of last year's "Assembly Dances" got their heads together and framed up a scheme whereby all those that wish to step the light  fantastic can do so once more to their  hearts content, and that the same  committee, will do their host to give  each and all as good a time as they  know how. A local orchestra will be  gotten together and first-class dance  music is promised. It was decided to  have the dances the first Friday in  every month. Small posters will be  printed and sent out to all they know  both up and down the line.  The Ladies Aid will have the Thanksgiving dinner this year, as in previous  years. This dinner bas been a great  success in the past, so naturally many  arc looking forward to the 20th of this  month, when the ladies once more get  together and give the spread. It's no  good working on an empty stomach,  come and get filled up again. All  those who can generally get away,  with a square meal will be taxed 50  cents, and those who mostly get away  from this, but are still under the tender age of twelve, will not be charged  with what they slip underneath, but  the modest sum of 25 cents will be  taxed. '  The, Department of Agriculture, in  accordance with its policy of the past  four years, will continue the fruit  packing schools during the coining  winter.  The class of instruction furnished by  t he experts employed by the Department in previous years, has demonstrated its. efficiency-.in-1 meeting the.  competition of Oregon and Washington in fruit packing. The experience  and standing of the instructors secured and the confidence reposed in them  by the Department guarantee to the  fruit growers the highest class of instruction. ������������������������������������  As in previous years, the local administration of the packing schools  will be placed in the hands of a responsible local body, such as the Far  iners' Institute, the Fruit Growers'  Association or the Board of Trade.  The Department of. Agriculture provides the instructor, and pays his expenses. The Department will also  bear the costs of the packing paper,  the fruit and all other legitimate expenses, except that of the Secretarial  work, which it has been found most  satisfactory to leave to local arrangement, and the rent of the hall, and its  heating and lighting.  The responsible organization in each  case will be required to guarantee a  minimum''of-'.twelve pupils, but not  more than fifteen with the proper  qualifications, at a fee of three dollars  each, to take the twelve lessons of two  and a half hours a lesson, the school  extending overthe week.  The hall for fifteen pupils must be at  least 30 ft. by 15ft., and well lighted.  It must be'suffieiehtly heated to prevent chilling of the fingers of the packers, and to prevent freezing of the  fruit at night. -  The Department will as far as possible, use local fruit. At the time of  making application for the packing  school, you are requested to reserve  fruit at the rate of 2h to 3 poxes per  pupil. The harder varieties, such as  Ben Davis, are preferred. Fruit must  be in good condition, but need not be  graded anil none should run under 2}  inches in diameter. The Department  will pay the legitimate, market price  as determined by the instructor on inspection.  The instructor will bring with him  the necessary packing tables and fruit  paper.

List Above 7V\������s������iiOitae"ol  VIOLATION OF SEED  CONTROL ACT  A case of genreal interest to farmers and others throughout British  Columbia was recently brought  under this Act, when the Sylvester-  Feed Company of Victoria was convicted of selling cabbage seed of low  vitality without indicating the percentage of germination of the same.  Under Section 10 of the Dominion  Seed Control Act all farm and vegetable seeds which are lower than two-  thirds the standard vitality of good  seed for that particular variety, must  be labelled with the percentage of  germination.  It is the intention of Dominion Department of Agriculture to strictly  enforce all the provisions of the Seed  Control Act of 1911, and anyone handling seeds should see to it that their  seed complies with this Act. The  Dominion Sued Laboratory at Calgary,  Alberta is at the service of anyone  dosirious of having seed tested., either  for vitality or weed seed. Copies of  the Act and information as to the  same may be obtained from the same  address.  J.--F.
