which is commendable and the
matter should be well considered by the citizens of Kelowna.
It is also suggested that the
surplus money from the recent
sale of the city's debentures
could be applied to this purpose. The whole question of
the .^development of the park
property -is; one which is big
%th possibilities for the future
welfare of the city, and one
which should be approached,
not lightly, but with a full appreciation of the fact that herein lies an opportunity of making
Kelowna one of the most
beautiful and attractive cities
for. summer visitors on the
whole of the Okanagan Lake.
The two great meetings recently held in Victoria, one a
conference of the farmers
themselves, and the other a
meeting of the railway authorities and representatives of the
farming interests, should be
productive of considerable benefit to the whole agricultural
community of British Columbia,
and let us hope, of the Okanagan in particular. Grievances
which have long been felt and
privately discussed, have been
• brought into the light, and
though not all wrongs have
been righted, yet much has
been-achieved and more may
be done when the' many important resolutions adopted
have had time to bear fruit.
Apart from the vexed question of freight' rates, the inequitable state' of which consti-
,. tute%. one,   of   the   greatest
- obstacles to the progress of the
■ fruit-growing industry in   the
"" Valley," perhaps the most important, matter which tKe recent
..conferences have emphasized
'is the "need of some more
efficient method of handling
and marketing the produce of
the farmer, $nd ..particularly of
the farmer in * small way.
The farmer is undoubtedly not
getting the return from his m-
- ^ yestmeht v^hich he ought to get.

Defrauding the Unemployed.
Two leaders of the Chelsea unemployed,
Geo. Rolfe, painter, and Wm. Hambhn,
general labourer, were charged at the
Central . Criminal Court, with misappropriating money collected on behalf of deserving cases of men out of work. Rolfe,
it was explained was the secretary and
Hamblin. the organizer and treasurer of
the Chelsea unemployed. They organized
church parades and street parades.
On Dec. 3 last, Rolfe and Hamblin paid
a visit to the Rev. A. Fleming, minister of
St. ColumbaY Church of Scotland, Pont
Street, and asked if they might attend his
church on the following Sunday and have
a collection on behalf of the unemployed.
This was agreed to and over £27 was realized. A great .part of this these two
philanthropists put into their own pockets.
Rolfe was sentenced to six months and
Hamblin to three months hard labor.
A number of cases of the exploiting of
real, distress have been brought to light
this winter.
Public Rat Catchers.
The Society \ for the Destruction of
Vermin hope to bring before Parliament
this year a bill, under which it is probable
that public rat catchers will be appointed.
Daring Escape From Russian Goal.
The story of a daring escape_from Ode-
off goal has reached St. Petersburg, the
principals;." being'■• seven important male
criminals and a' gipsy woman with her
five months-old baby. They made a combined dash out of-their cells at dusk, disarmed and bound the watchman, and laying hands on six revolvers, two carbines,
a sporting, gun, and three swords, forced
an entrance into the quarters of the prison
Inspector1 and Superintendent. Crying
"Hands up I" they over-powered and
bound fast all who were there, and then
ransacked the premises, taking about £200
in cash and a quantity of valuables. They
also supplied themselves with a stock of
provisions. After exchanging their prison
garb for clothing belonging to the inspector
and other officials, they went to the prison
church and stole the altar plate* and the
valuable ikon frames. They were quite
leisurely in their movements, as they knew
that none of the officials were able to give
the alarm. Four of the prisoners who
escaped are local inhabitants; the others
are peasants from different  Governments.

Mr; Ashutosh Biswas the public prosecutor of Alipore, who was engaged in
proceedings. against7the Anarchists of
Alipore, was shot dead as he was leaving
the police court by a young Bengali Anarchist, a lad of 18, named Charm Chunder
Base, resident in the Khulna district. On
his arrest .the assassin.said, "I have fulfilled
my mission." This naturally leads to the
suspicion,that he is only one of a gang.
This is the second murder committed in
connection with the trial of 30 conspirators
arrested in May last as the result of a discovery of explosives at Mackintollah.
The same evening bombs were thrown
at a suburban train containing Mr. Hume,
the public prosecutor of Calcutta, but fortunately no one was injured.

Do You Know the Method of Extract-

the government has paid out $12,573 in
bounties upon wolves, panthers and
Upon motion of Mr., Heatherbell, of
Metchosin, the government was cordially
thanked for the increase of the bounty upon
wolves from $7.50 to $15.
Complaint was made that much of the
trouble with the thistle pest was due to
the unrestrained presence of thistles upon
Indian Reserves, and it was urged that the
Provincial Constables should be charged
with the strict enforcement'of the law.
Mr. Palmer observed that the department should be kept informed in respect
to the non-enforcement of the Noxious
Weeds Acts in the different parts of the
province where this particular pest existed,
and especially in the case of unorganized
Mr. Heatherbell, seconded by Mr. May,
moved that the quality of the tree sprays
which were upon the market should be
brought within the duties of the govern,
ment inspectors.
The growth of good fruit, it was maintained, depended upon the careful spraying
of the trees, and something should be done
to improve the quality of the sprays. • The
question of pumps too was raised, Mr.
Curry ascribing much of the dissatisfaction-
now felt in regard to spraying to the use
of poor pumps. -' *'
Mr. Gillespie, seconded by Mr. Matheson, urged a more rigid inspection of
dairies generally and especially in cities
where milk was sold for consumption by
infants and others. Mr. Gillespie main-
tained that greater care was required in
seeing that the milking was properly done,
and particularly in the case of smaller
places, where onlythree or four cows were
kept, as in such instances cows were
altogether found too often to be in very
filthy condition.
^Mr. V. D. Curry moved and Mr. John
Dilworth seconded a resolution of approval
of the principles of the water bill now
before the legislature.
r Mr. W. T. Abbott moved a resolution,
seconded by Mr. John Dilworth, which was
received with much applause, 4hat the
Institute petition the provincial government
to establish an agricultural college in British Columbia, including an experimental
farm for practical instruction. .-
.   Mr. Dilworth moved that the open season for deer extend from Oct. 15th   until
the endoFNovron the"Mainiand,"and that"
no person shall be allowed to  kill more
than three deer during one season.
Mr. Dilworth also moved that the Department of Agriculture of B. C. impress
upon the Dominion Government the necessity of more rigid inspection of fruit coming
into this country, as well as into the Northwest. The following amendment to this
motion waa afterwards carried: That the
Central Institute approves of the action of
the provincial inspectors in condemning
fruits that have not, as regards the presence
of fruit pests, come up to the requirements
of the horticultural board.
Another matter which created much
interest had reference to the serious losses
which were being incurred due to the lack
of an efficient system of handling and
marketing of produce.
Mr. Scott, who has just returned from
England, gave a brief account of the happy
results which had attended upon the
exhibition of British Columbia fjmit in
Great Britain, including two medals at the
Crystal Palace and gold medals at Bath,
Leeds and Aberdeen. At the Royal Horticultural show their 366 boxes of fruit had
occupied all of one end, and two sides of
a very large hall, making the most magnificent exhibit that anyone could wish to
see.' With regard to fruit packing, he
advised the placing of a layer of corrugated paper upon all occasions between every
row as well as at the top and bottom of
each box. When fruit was packed in
layers, one apple, etc., directly over another,
And without corrugated paper between, it
waa" always more or less bruised. While
a great deal of this fruit was packed
{nany' of the boxes had not been sufficiently full when tho lids were fastened down.
The'.^oxes should be packed  extremely

I would rather walk in the dark with God
Than go alone in the light.
I would rather walk with Him by faith,
Than walk alone by sight.

Prohibition Affecting The Liquor
,   Business.
As has been expected, the sweep of
Prohibition throughout theUnited'States is
telling upon the business of the liquor
manufacturers. The latest published reports from the United States Internal Revenue Department, show that lastyear there
was a falling off in liquor production of
40,000,000 gallons.
The excise interests, which, for a number of years had been steadily increasing,
show a falling off of $15,928,296. Taking
the common estimate, that the' consumer
pays six times the amount charged for
duty, it- will be found that this reduction
means a saving to the nation of $95,629,376.
It is not strange that along with this information comes the news of a decided increase in industrial activity all through the
land. Money saved from liquor expenditure will assuredly find its way in such expenditures as well as promote general industry and benefit the public at large.
The Narcotic Influence of Alcohol.
Sir Victor Homely, the well-known
English Physician, who visited Toronto at
the time of the meeting of the British
Medical Association, and gave a strong
address during his stay there in favor of
total abstinence, has been letting his voice
be heard on a similar line whenever opportunity has occurred. Recently at the
meeting "of the Norfolk united Council-he-
asked the question, if there was any such
thing as moderate drinking, and himself answered it with a decided negative.
The so-called moderate drinker, he stated,
was a drug-taker, and every time he took
a drink he was really taking a sleeping
draught. The nation spent he said, nearly
one hundred and eighty million pounds,
annually on sleeping draughts. Such a
statement calls for serious consideration,
coming as it does from one of the leading
physicians of the Empire.

was going to take a piece off the barrel,
and had the breach end in the forge.
There .were no nipples in the breech, and
the fire went to the powder quickly and
put the charge off. Although shattering
the bone the shot did not break the leg
clean off, and he was able to walk about
six feet. He, however, put too much
weight on die leg, and it snapped off, letting him fall out of the door to the ground
quite heavily.   -

months. A cable has been received saying that third-class quarters on all the

This means that with the immigrants on
the Allan and Dominion line steamships
there will pass ^through Montreal, even
during the present month, 2,000 or 3,000
settlers, and augurs well for the rest of the
open season. Steamship officials declare
that the immigrants will be "■■of a sturdy,
acceptable class,, and that Hon. Frank
Oliver's new immigration bill will in no

One small inquisitive rat demoralized
the street car service of San Francisco for a
time, put a powerhouse out of business,
and left its own body a carbonized connection for 16,000 volts of electricity. The
rat crawled across two main wires of the
Beech powerhouse, which supplies part
of the local street car system with power,
and when the repair men of the power
company investigated the cause of the
mysterious shutdown of the place they
found only a bit of carbon in the shape of

the men. He attracted the attention of a
man with a horse and wagon, with which

The Story of a Berlin Shrew and Hi
Likeness In'Stone.
;,;-Tins-.quaint equivalent of the Gei
"man term ueidkopf is applied by tiu\
.ii-rs to; an effigy carved iu slou<> Am.'.
lixi _: in a niche In the secoud stor,\
uf a house in the HeihgeugiMststr.isst
in; Berlin not far from the emperor-
imlate. The neidkopf represeutb a
hideous, iharpy faced woman with
suukelike curls and tongue protruduifo
In mocking derision.
one. day some 200 years ago the
legend runs, Frederick William* ol
I'nissla, more familiarly known as
Old Fritz, was walking about, tin
streets of the city in the unconvenlioii
ul way he affected when he chained
to look through a window and observed
ii hunchbacked goldsmith hard at
work. The king entered the little shop
fur a chat.
.. The result of his interview was an
order'for a gold table service for the
royal household, an order that made
the fortune of the hunchback Later
his majesty made other visits to the
shop to see how the work was advancing, aud on one of these occasions he
observed,"a woman in the window ot
the opposite hou&e contorting her race
In the most hideous grimaces and
pointing with derisive finger at tbe
'crippled workman
To the king's query as to what ailed
the old woman the goldsmith replied
—It is envy,..sire. She is the wire ot
11 rival goldsmith, and ever since your
majesty so graciously gave me this
order she.and her daughter have reviled me";
Frederick William, paternal in punishment as well as In reward, at once
investigated as to the ownership of
the house In which the shrew lived
He foiind that it belonged to her hii"
band and therefore reasoned that there
was 'little likelihood of the famil>
moving, an idea tbat seemed greatly to
please his majesty. His next move
was to consult a scnlptor, whom he
commanded to make the bust ot e
woman '■ with the most shrewish, Xan
tippe-like face he could Imagine The
king then bought and, renovated the
house in which the hunchback bad bis
workshop, presented It to him and
caused the. bust to be placed conspicu
onsly above the workroom window
Thus whenever the envious woman
across the street looked forth from her
casement the' first object on which her
eyes fell was this intended portrait ot
her amiable self.
For more; than a hundred years the
ne.idlf.0pt7-spiteful vixen head, as on<>
would, say in English—stood in proud
prominence, a reproach to the envious
woman and her descendants. It afterward mysteriously disappeared, but
in 1840 or thereabouto It was found in
a forgotten ; collection of bric-a-brac
Frederick William IV. bought the bust
for a'large price and had It replaced
in its original niche, where it stands
today.' '
The Senate Band.
The. press gallery of the senate does
not look unlike a band stand, with its
elaborately decorated front, and it is
never occupied by the scribes prior to
the opening of the proceedings. A
young lady seated In the gallery opposite the press gallery had been looking
intently at the empty seats fori quite
awhile. Her, curiosity, got the better ot
her,:aud, going to thejloorkeeper, she
said, ^"Mister, will yorf please tell me
when the band begins to play?" The
doorkeeper ' was amazed. "No band
will;.play/ miss," said that gentleman
"There is no band. Why do you ask?"
■ .The young lady looked disappointed
and embarrassed when she said, with
hesitation, ''Isn't that the bandstand?"
pointing to, the press gallery.—Washington Herald.

jThe iruit'did *not sellt because

be made so that the grower could

the speaker^ suggested - a ' plan
whereby the consumer could deposit his money in the bank and
then send his receipt and order
(direct *to the grower. _n this way
both [the consumer and. grower
would-be, protected. He claimed
that the retailers on  the prairies
vwere making _i|om, 75> per cent." to
300 per cent * profit 'on the ' fruit

The main subject  of discussion

the question of: inspection and
regulations?came>:-up,"> and" it appeared to be the opinion of the
gathering that., the Washington
growers had an unfair advantage,
through' not being "compelled to
comply withithe regulations' binding on local 'growers. (        _„ -

of the" necessity of cold storage

not not forced -on -' the market at
any price the dealer1 would pay to
prevent loss would solve the question Sf tnarketing ' the fruit He
had noticed when_"travellirig between Moosejavv and Medicine
Hat that'good fruit was sold in that
vicinity and'found that it was kept
until marketdd'iri' cold storage at
Moosejaw: He'thought 'the cold
storage proposition waa' one to be
considered at'once, and the 'government
might assist. "      ' '
'The competition of the Japanese, said
Mr. Metcalfe, of Port Hammond, had been
responsible for the'demoralization of the
market for small fruits in the Northwest
during the past year.
The Japanese had come in growing
numbers into the fruit business with regard to small fruits and had consigned
their output to commission men at small
prices,'often at 50 and 75 cents a crate,
and the berries thrown on'the'market had
a demoralizing effect on prices as far east
as Winnipeg. He thought Ji the output
of the Japanese could be controlled by the
white people, it might improve the situa.
Hon. Anyhow-the fruit' growers did not
not want these foreigners coming in and
destroying the country as a place for residence and business by white people. He
suggested the organizationoHocal unions
and the sending of 'travellers, whose ex.
pences would more that be-covered by
the losses sustained at present./
After some other speakers, some in favor of local unions with a governing board,
the necessity of cold -storage and good
handling. Mr. Pitcairn, of Kelowna, spoke
for the individual^ grower, .who' worked
independently. "J."Arnold, of Chilliwiiack,
replied, saying that while the last speaker
spoke of the';large grower the small shipper should be consided, and by his "shipping independently he often disorganized
the market. Unless"banded to fix prices
he thought, failure ^would result. Mr.
Mackenzie, of Port Hammond, thought
that if .a. mip was large enough, to work'
independently it was'' better" to do so,1
otherwise membership in a local union
waa best   * f.s-~ \..-.   ->.-       ■.   --
Several other resolutions followed, having for their object' the removing-of • the
disadvahtages.under.which B. C. growers
._b6r_rcompet_ion with American fruit.
The proper.marldng. and grading of fruit
salso gave rise to some warm debate, as
also the reintroduced question of tariffs
and rates: " '» '    •,£■'     ■ > '' '
-.In conclusion Mr. Lanigan said he would
take home and consider a number of rate
'requests that had been made, and after a
vote of thanks had been passed to the

? demand would be still greater/ Since' tKe
; recent success at Spokane enqnines had
7ome in from all narts of America and the
fOld -Cbuhtnr'- for 'more: literature.     The
* fame of Kelowno had become world-wide.
, Funds''should be'at once raised for'-carry-'
;' ing on the good work which had been so
■ well begun/ - Other towns were awakening
t to the importance of vigorous advertising.
- Vernon, he, said, had asked the City Coun-
7cil for" a grant of $500 for this purpose;
'Revelstoke   had  applied   for  $1,000, and
almost every city of British Columbia was
Cushing on .with this work.   Large  num-
era'of emigrants were now coming west,
and   hundreds of  people were  travelling
. west, and the board ought to get busy in
' order to take advantage of this.    In addition  to a booklet, he suggested that slips
.: might be got out relating to various branches
: of fruit growing and placed in every box
that goes out.   -      • ■     - :■*
a    Mr. Kerr thought that care should be
taken in distributing booklets, not to throw
: them broadcast to people who do not want
them. ■ He.suggested.that someone should
• be paid to write short articles for the
papers and accompany them-with photographs. This would do much good.
There were many farming papers in Canada and'the States with large* circulations,
^ who  would accept such articles, and the
readers of these papers were just the peo-
' pie they wanted to  reach.   They  could
, thus reach a .much larger population that
way and for a much smaller sum of money.
'     Mr. DeHart was of opinion that better
' results could be had from placing the fruit
■itself befpre^the public, than by the issue
of expensive booklets, though some sort of
small  books   were   necessary  to  answer
enquiries instead of writing letters.
It was then moved and seconded that
the publication committee get someone to
send  short  articles  and   cuts to  various
'< magaianes.*, A '
A; littler tangled discussion followed about
the'amount of money to be appropriated
for advertising, and it was finally decided
,the board to give the Publicity Committee
$250 to be applied to advertising purposes.
Mr. Sutherland proposed, and Mr. Speers
' seconded, that  the  Board of Trade  wait
upon the City Council and ask for a grant
for the purpose of advertising the city.
On the motion of  Mr. Dilworth a vote
'■ of thanks was given to Mr. Stirling for his
report '
Mr. Elliott thought the C.P.R. had been
' very dilatory In respect to their works , in
the City of Kelowna, and suggested that a
committee be appointed to go into the
matter and see if nothing could be done
to assist the railway company by improv.
ing the site and if necessary buying the
land and presenting it to them.
The urgency.! of the matter was fully
recognized, and a'committee consisting of
' Messrs. Sutherland, Stirling and   Dilworth'
.were appointed/,,to','join' with, the City
Council  in .an   endeavour   to   press  the
>matter forward.-7-,>,
Mr. Stirling moved that the secretary of
the Associated Boards of *■ Trade be approached   calling   for   concerted    of   all
,boards in,the  Valley.in  establishing  a
''bureau   of "information   at   the   Alaska-
' Yukon-Pacific, Exposition.

Baseball Players
Call Meeting
The season for that popular pastime
which made a decided hit with all lovers
of clean sport in this city last year is at
hand, and the opening game, is being
eagerly anticipated.
The prospects of a fast team are exceedingly bright as eight of last year's team
with an abundance of newv material will
report for practice on Thursday afternoon
of April I st.
7 H. Paul catcher, A. Coe 1st Base, C.
Jamieson 2nd Base, T. Treadgold 3rd Base,
J. Pettigrew and L. McMillan outfielders,
Moulton short stop and Eastman pitcher,
are the old players who will report. Paul,
the youngster whose catching was the sensation of last year's play has taken on
considerable weight and with improved
batting ability will prove invaluable. Coe's
work.while never of the spectacular sort,
was always reliable and possessed that
"never'quit" spirit which, above all other
qualities, wins games. Jamieson _ work at
second was ofthe same variety and he will
play a much faster game this season, as
his arm which was broken last year is
again in shape. Treadgold, at third, is
expected to play a faster game this season
as his playing indicated that the latter part
of last season. McMillan who had his
first experience last season will be one of
the fastest outfielders in the Valley this
year. Pettigrew, who was undoubtedly
the fastest fielding outfielder in the league
last year but who failed to bat to form will
spend all his efforts to correct that fault
and coupled with his fleetness on the bases
certainly would be a run getter. Moulton,
who was said by all to be the fastest
fielding infielder in the league, but who
failed to bat as expected will return from
California and his service will be a big
factor in winning games.
MayofR R. E. DeHart will be the
President of the organization this year and
if Mr. C. C. Josselyn can be induced to
retain the management the prospects will
be exceedingly good. Financially the club
is in a first class shape, as it has nearly
four hundred dollars worth of the very
best material and is the best equipped
club in the Valley. This is all on the
credit side as' the club owes no bills.
Great credit is due Mr. Josselyn for the
financial standing for this is the first athletic
club in the city with a large balance to
their credit at the end of the season, which
shows the result of wise and careful
A-meeting of last years players will be
held on Tuesday evening of March 16th,
at 6 p.m., in Josselyn's store to elect officers
for the ensuing year.   '
