Keller block, and the near approach
to completion of the new . Opera
House in. the Raymer block, draws
%one'o attention to >the extensive
.building operations that have been
'going on in the city of Kelowna
during this-past vyear. The city
contains'a number of contractors
.who have been busy' right along,
'and by the-' courtesy 'of these
gentlemen we are able to give an
'estimate of the building, renovating
etc., during the year   1908, within
' the city.    " -'■    '•   "   ' V
Mr. H. W. Raymer, one of Kel-
owna's largest contractors, has

A very large amount of building has
been going on-just outside the city limits,
and in the country around, but the figures
give a rough estimate of the value of the
work within the city, and it was endeavoured to make the estimate as conservative as
possible, rather than'over state the amounts;
The city, has spent twelve thousand „one
hundred'ahd forty'seven dollars in sidewalks, streets and gradings, in addition to
building the bridges mentioned in above
statement, and has installed a modern

this system will cost about about forty nine
thousand five hundred and eighty one
dollars, for most of which debentures are
sold. The lighting system i is already in
operation and giving every satisfaction,
and the water system is close upon completion. "        - i

The "zeal" of tramp preachers
who have visited Vancouver and
who every summer go to that city
will get them into serious trouble if
Police Chief Chamberlain lays
hands on them. ■■ As the, result of
letters which came to the chief today,' the force will be instructed to
keep a watchful eye out for these
"no-sect" preachers, who are so
numerous as to be hard to classify
except as vagrants.
■ Letters were received from
England and Ireland., They ,warn
police officers to be on the lookout
for this class of preachers, who
are travelling among all nations,
self-styling themselves "free church
It is charged that they deport
jjoung girls from one country to
another, stripping them of Aevery-
thing except the-clothes'they wear,
then" making white slaves of them.
The girls can do nothing for their
protection, as their masters keep
them attached to them through
fear for their lives should they attempt to escape.
It is claimed the tramp preachers
are nothing but seducers, and that
in Belfast,, Ireland and Suffolk,
England/sufficient evidence is in
hand to show judge and jury that
these captivators are guilty of conspiracy, fraud, libel and abuse of
young girls.
These spurious mimics of divines
are believed to now have in hiding
in Vancouver a girl named Alice
Pipe, who was enticed away from
her' home" in Suffolk,'. England.
Miss Pipe's description has been
furnished the police.
Letters have been received by
the relatives of these girJes, • which
describe their painful experiences
with the tramp preachers: - Efforts
to locate the girls, however, have
failed through the cunning methods
adopted by their captors in keeping
them-in hiding and - burying, their
identity^       .
An organized campaign * for the
elimination of the tramps has been
started, and Vancouver authorities
will assist. In England and Ireland
the ^underhand work has been
carried on" most - extensively.
Preachers of character have taken
up the fight, and from indications
will wage it persistendy until the
vagrant class is wiped out and the
guilty ones serit to the penitentiary
for their crimes.
Important Matters Discussed - The Question of Freight Rates
Inspection and Marking of Imported Fruit.
An account appears in the last
issue of the _Summerland_Reyjew.
showing that'our neighbor down
the Lake won honors for Okanagan
fruit at the late Spokane exhibition
and to whom we extend our congratulations. '
It was a small hurriedly picked
exhibit that Summerland sent in
charge of Messrs. Simpson' and
Ross, but it won praises from all
who saw it.
The following is a list of prizes
taken by Summerland.
" Best three-tier box, any variety,
in any, exhibit, open to the-world
outside United States, first prize,
won by Mr. Thos. Dale with
Northern Spies.
Paragon apple, first prize, won
byMr. J. J. Mitchell.
Hubbardson Nonsuch, second
prize, won by Mr. Jas. Gartrell.

The delegates to the meeting of
the Associated Board of Trade from
the various boards in the Okanagan
met at Armstrong last Thursday
and transacted business of a very
important nature, materially affecting the welfare "of the;Okanagan.
G. A.-Henderson, of Vernon, occupied the chair, and the various
resolutions were deahvwith thoroughly. The principled question,
and one that has been on the minds
of farmers and fruit, growers *for a
long time past, was that of freight
rates, and important resolutions
were dealt with and ordered to*be
submitted to the B. C. Government
and C. P. R. officials at Victoria on
the 14th of~Feb. next. Numerous
letters had been received by .the
Board from Mr. Llanigan, C. P. R.
freight traffic manager at Winnipeg,
in which he stated that his Company were ^extremely anxious 'to
meet the views of the B. C. fruit
and produce growers as far as
possible, and endeavour to put a
stop to the marketing of fruit on
the prairies from United .States
growers, and asking for a r full
representation at the Victoria meeting."     - '      / \ .;/ ";_  '
A resolution was adopted relating
to 'the fruit canning in the Okanagan. Mr. Ritchie, of Peachland,
demonstrated that the Ontario~can-
ner had an advantage of -25 per
cent. * over 'the home_manufacturer.
The- resolution asked for^ailower
rate on empty cars and on carload
lots of the finished product.
A resolution from Kelowna was
carried asking the. legislature of
British Columbia for three members
instead of one to represent the
Okanagan, and • suggesting one
for the northern portion from Vernon north; one for Vernon, includ-
White Valley and south to Okanagan Centre; and the other for the
southern portion of the riding.   ^
The following resolutions were
adopted:— *
Asking for a* daily boat service
on Okanagan Lake.
That a lecturer on British Columbia be engaged to tour the
United States.'
.That the Board instruct Mr.
Burrill, M.P., to look into the new
clause of the Water Bill of Lading
that came before the Senate of
That the express rates on fruit to
Kootenay and/the boundary points
be reduced from their present prohibitive schedule
appears to have been the result of
the lack of a sufficient number of
competent inspectors familiar with
Canadian and particularly B.C. and
Pacific coast fruit: be it resolved
that all fruit, thus imported > into
Canada should Be made to conform with' all the -requirements of
the said Act as to grading and
marking; that to ensure such conformity, all imported fruit should be
rigidly inspected, and for that, purpose an adequate staff of competent
inspectors should be employed.
That this associated Board of
Trade forward copies of this resolution to the Hon. Sidney Fisher,
Minister of Agriculture, and to Mr.
McNeil, Chief Inspector of the Fruit
Department at Ottawa, thus bringing this unsatisfactory state of
affairs to their notice"; also a copy
to the Hon. R. G. Tatlow, Minister
of Agriculture at Victoria; to Martin Burrill,.M.P., with instructions
to press for a better enforcement of
the Act; and a copy to Sir Thos.-
Shaughnessy, president of' the
C.P.R. . .
An informal dinner was given to
the delegates by the local Board at
the Okanagan Hotel.
Those present at the meeting
were as follows :!—     -
From Vernon—G. A. Henderson,
P. Dickson, H. P. Rogers, J. Val-
lance, T. G. Wanless, and W. C.
Ricardo. *
From Kelowna—iW. A. Pitcairn,
T. ElIiottTand P/'DuMoulin.     , .
- From Peachland—T. Ritchie and'
W:Logan.'1   *  •   .,
From Armstrong—J. M. Wright,
H. B. Morley, P. D. Vanleek, A. E.
Sage, F. C. Wolfenden, T. K. Smith,
and C. T. Daykin.
A Nicht Wi' Burns.
That copies of all resolutions be
forwarded to Mr. Llanigan and the
Deputy Minister" of Agriculture at
Victoria, as well, as to those particularly interested in the resolutions.
That the minimum weight of
mixed cars of fruit and vegetables
be reduced, as well as on the
heavier fruits and stone or perishable fruit.
That the rate to Calgary and
Winnipeg be reduced to a fair and
reasonable rate, a reduction of 30c
per 100 lbs. being asked for.
That a rate be asked for canned
fruits to points in B. C. and the
prairie provinces when shipped in
mixed cars of fruit.
That the secretary still continue
asking for the name of Sicamous to
be changed to Okanagan Junction,
and suggesting that Okanagan
Landing be called Port' Okanagan,
and that the Postal authorities be
requested to alter these names.
That H. B. Rogers, of Vernon, be
sent-as a delegate to the Victoria
meeting, and "that each affiliated
Board be requested to send two or
more /members, preferably their
transportation committees.
The most important resolution
was:—Whereas the grading and
marking of fruit in the United States
differs from the marking required
by our Inspection and Sale Act,
which difference, operates to the
prejudice of Canadian Shippers;
and whereas the Inspection and
Sale-Act appears to have been very
loosely enforced in 1908 on fruit
imported from -the U. S. into the
prairie provinces; and whereas this
Twenty three lives were lost in a fire
which occurred at the Intermediate Water
supply crib, Chicago. Twenty seven were
rescued, all of whom were suffering from
cuts or immersion.
A description of the accident was given
by G. W. Jackson, whose company was
constructing the intake tunnel' under Lake
Michigan, and of which the crib served as
a base of operation.
The fire started from an explosion of the
powder magazine, whicluimmediatery set
60 men, 20 of whom were at work in the
tunnel under the crib, and the rest sleeping
in their bunks.
All who were not killed or injured by
the first explosion, rushed out of doors
but found no way of escape, as the cold
waters of Lake Michigan were on every
side, its surface covered with cakes of ice.
"The crib is on fire. For God's sake
send help at once or we will be burned
alive.   The^ tug,->»"
This was the message received at the
shore office, and at the last word the telephone wire broke, and those on shore
heard no more. The tug started at once
for the rescue, and on nearing the scene
men were found trying to '■ escape by
swimming. Others were seen clinging to
cakes of ice for a time, and then disappear.
After the tug reached its goal, the victims of the fire were found, 'their hair
singed off and faces blackened, struggling
in the water. xSome fought against their4
rescuers, sinking into unconsciousness on
the deck when forced aboard the tug.
.' "When I neared the crib" said Capt.
Johnson, "I saw a number of men, their
clothing ablaze, run <.out of the blazing
structure and jump into the lake. Others
rapidly twisted ropes about anything they
could find and jumped into the water to
prevent being, drowned. Others used
boxes and pieces of timber as life preservers..
"When we got within 50"feet o{ the
crib, I slowed down the engine, ~ and we
began throwing out ropes and life preservers to the men in the water. As we
bumped against the ruined structure some
of the'men jumped aboard, but others we
so' unnerved that we had to' climb out and
drag them aboard.
All the Macs, in town met in
Raymer's Hall on Monday night to
celebrate the Bobbie Burns Anniversary, and it was a pronounced
success. An energetic committee
had decorated the large hall very
prettily with red, white and blue
bunting, evergreens and deer heads
and all present were there bent on
having a good time, and they  did.
The Caledonian concert, always
an attraction, was highly appreciated, and several pieces encored.
Early in the evening, weird
strains were heard by people who
were near the wharf, coming from
out of the blackness down the
lake, which later proved to be the
pipes of J. Cameron, of Naramata,
who -came up* in the "Maud
Moore" for the occasion. On , his
arrival the concert commenced,
and the following program rendered in style.

served in the adjoining hall, to
which one hundred and fifty guests
sat down, Mr.Xeckie repeating._t.he

the .lips of Burns himself :—"~"* "*""
'■'Some-hae meat but canna eat,
An' same wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat an' we can eat,

Toasts were proposed by Mr.
Sutherland, the first in honour of
His Majesty. A < second toast to
the immortal "Robbie" was proposed by Mr. Sutherland, and 'replied to by Messrs. G. C. Rose and
R. B. Kerr. - Mr. Kerr giving a
short sketch of Robbie Burns' life
;from his birth on the 25th January,
1 759, to the day of his death, 22nd

After supper, preparations were
made for dancing in the large hall,
and this was kept up with vigour
until the wee sma' oors. Mr. A.

Thursday night in Raymer's Hall,
was one of the most successful
events this winter. Dancing commenced prompdy at 9 o'clock, and
the hall was as full of Masqueraders
in every variety of costume, as it
would conveniently hold, and
leave plenty "of room ,for dancing.
There were between 701 and 80
costumes on the floor, while "about
50 spectators were watching the
brilliant scene from the platform
at the end of the h'all.
The night's festivities opened
with a waltz and kept up almost
without cessation until 4-a.rh. ;The
dresses were* most artistic; and'the
effect of, the harmonious .blending
of many colours, was, pleasing in

waltzed around the room with' grim

round and round the room. -Trou-

We were called up on Saturday
morning by Mr. F. Wilbur Jones,
Secretary of the British and Foreign Bible Society, who was leaving for Vernon. Mr. Jones was interested in a contributed article in
the last issue of the Orchard City
Record, entitled "Socialism." He
states that on a recent occasion,
when perusing his vocation in the
city of Vancouver, he entered
some premises bearing over the
doorway, "l.W.W." It was the
headquarters of the Independent
Workers of the World. There
were many nationalities represented in the room, persuing/ various
journals, socialist and otherwise.
Mr. Jones states that he was astounded to see in a leading article
in one of the Socialist organs, this
sentence used, "It is the duty of all
good Socialists to put down Christianity, if necessary by force."
It is Mr. Jones' desire' on every,
possible occasion, to warn people
of the position desired by the
Socialist party, and he warns the
residents of Kelowna to take- note
of the insidious beginnings of this
work in their midst, and to decide
for themselves if they will countenance it.
An instance has been brought to
our notice, which, for colossal cheek
is hard to beat. This is nothing
else than an advertisement which
appears in a recent issue of "Canada," advertising some fruit lands
in the Kootenay country. The advertisers, a prominent Winnipeg
real estate firm, have the impudence
to insert a photograph of J, L.
Pridham'8 orchard. Kelowna, to
illustrate their Kootenay lands. It
is an unmistakable tribute to the
original, but does not speak well
firm has to pirate photographs of
other districts in order to induce
buyers, and reflects anything but
credit on the firm itself. Such an
unprincipled mode of advertising
deserves wide publicity,' and if a
firm has lands for sale of which it
is ashamed to photograph, it had
far better not publish a picture at
The Orchard City Record  is in
receipt  of a circular letter from
Mr.  N.  F.   Peters,   Asst.   Second
- Vice-President of the   C.P.R.   in
. which it atates that that company,
. with a view to encouraging the
"   development of the cities,  towns
', and villages along its lines in  the
'   West and supplying their needs,
has established an  Industrial  Department.
K        . Enquires are   constantly   being
»■       made as to openings  in the West
for factories, wholesale and retail
'   houses, etc., and it  is the aim  of
* the*C.P.R. to obtain full particulars
from the different settlements as to
.their requirments and  attractions.
Mr. Peters also invites communi-
p>'*;cations from manufacturers and intending investors who may require
information, which enquires will
.receive careful attention, and every
endeavor made to give reliable information.
The Saturday Sunset about hits

the causes of Socialism and Temperance are both hampered by the

leaders and press  exponents."
National Anthem to be Played. More
For the future, "God Save the King" is,
by the express desire of His Majesty, to be
play in quicker time by all military bands
than has hitherto been the custom. An
order of the Army Council has been
issued, instructing military bandmasters
that the time is to be 84 crochets to the
minute instead of 60. It is understood
that the King and the Royal Family
objected to the slower time as too dirge
like, and the brisker rendering of the music has been tried before the King, and
approved by him. The order applies to
service bands in all parts of the Empire,
including at least 400. military bands, and
other bands will probably fall in line with
the brisker rendering.
The American Navy.
The American Navy, says and American
writer in an American Magazine, now
leads the world in accuracy and rapidity
of shooting; six years ago it was behind
the Navy of every first-class Power.
Six years ago the standard for firing heavy
turret guns—wh:ch are now a battleship's
sole weapon of consequence in battle-
was once ir. five minutes; the average of
hits on the target now in use would not
have been once an hour. At present these
guris fire an average of one and a half
shots a minute; they hit the target once a
a minute. Six years ago the standard rate
of fire for six-inch guns was less than two
shots a minute; as shown by the tests of
1902, less than one shot a minute hit the
target. To-day these guns frequently
make as many as'twelve hits a minute,
and the average of the whole Navy is sue
hits a minute. These are the records at
the 1,600-yard range. .At the last long
range target practice iii Massachusetts
Bay the battleships of the North Atlantic
Fleet, firing at a target from three to five
away, averaged nearly 30 per cent, of hits.
With a target one-third the ■ "size of the
ships at Santiago, at distances from two to
three times as great, our Fleet made .more
than fifteen times the percentage of hits.
Translated into terms of war," these
changes mean: Six years ago an American
battleship would not hit an enemy's vessel
at a battle range of three miles or more
oftener than twice an hour. To-day every
ship of an enemy's fleet' steaming into
range would be struck by two tons of steel
shell every minute by. 'every modern
American ship firing at her. Solid metal
spatters like mud when these great projectiles strike it; when charged with their
high explosives these shells • are swept
through the ship in fragments of'from two
hundred pounds in weight down to the
finest steel dust. In all human probability
no ship in the world could stand; such a
fire fifteen minutes.     •:   ;,
The Yellow Peril.
Speaking at a banquet in London, given
by the Royal Colonial Institute to welcome
Lord Northcote, his lordship remarked on
the necessity of viewing the yellow immigration question from an Australian
vie-w point—He declared-Au«tralia_was increasingly protectionist, and . urged the
necessity of English emigration.

Attorney-General Bowser and B.C. Clubs
One of the most important of the earlier
Government measures which will be introduced to the house, will be a special club
licensing bill, fathered by Attorney-General
Bowser. All now incorporated*, and those
hereafter seeking incorporation, will under
this bill, have to take out annually a government license, and pay a fee of $100.00,
before continuing or obtaining the privilege
selling liquor. They must also all be subject to inspection, when deemed necessary
by the Government c
This proposal to put clubs under strict
regulations, is the outcome of numerous
complaints received in the Attorney-General's department regarding questionable
clubs.but carries with it no reflection upon
the better class of clubs, many of which
have been organized a long time, and in
which there is no abuse of present

An article appears in the Cleveland Press,
1st Jan. 1909, in which the W. H. Mullins

and includes 700 engines to be delivered

.Messrs. James JBros, of Kelowna, who

President  of Nicaragua  Adopts
Nooel Scheme to Stop Reoolts.
The most original scheme of preserving
his position has recently been hit upon by
President Zalaya of Nicaragua. His plan
is very simple. Whenever ,he leaves the
capital he takes with him all the firing
mechanism of the guns of his 'fortress in
order to prevent a revolution in the garrison, so it isvreported. He is said to have
had constructed a large brass-bound chest
in which in which all the firing pins and
delicate apparatus of each of the big guns
suimounting tne lortress walls at Canute,
are carried, and only replaced when he is
safely back at the capital.

To drop in on him and inspect his stock,
And regulate his ticker by the standard clock.

His skilled mechanics will repair it well,
And teach its hjtrids the time and truth to tell.

_ A house on the Scane sideroad; about
5 miles'from Owen Sound,'was scene of a
''Whitecap" outrage last week, when a
party of menj-wearing-masksr^dragged'a
man named Owens from bed and,' having
administered a copious coat'of tar and
feathers, the second to which he had been
treated within a week, escorted him from
the neighborhood'to the accompaniment of
revolver shots. ,
Last fall, Owens, who is nearly 60 years
old, and who has a wife in" Chatham,
whom it is alleged he does not support, became very attentive to a 20-year-old girl in
Ridgetown, and a few weeks ago he ac
cbfnpanied her to her home on the Scane
road, where they took up their residence.
The girl's father came here and laid a com.
plaint before a justice of the ^peace, and
as a result the two migrated to Morpeth, a
village on Lake Erie, about twelve miles to
the'south.    ' ttt
<; At Morpeth the* vill&gersTook stoong exception to their presence, and 'on New
Year a night a party took the man out and
tarred and feathered him. The couple
then returned to the paternal abode and
again qUutered themselves on the family.
This was a little too much for the neighbors. A ".Whitecap" party broke into the
house, where they foundjhe man and'girl
and Owens was again' smeared with tar
and feathers liberally scattered -over'him.
He was then given - solemn warning that
worse would befall him if he showed his
face their again, arid after an interval spent
by the victim in removing as much of the
tar as possible, he was driven away several
of his assailants'firing their pistol as an-ad-
dibonal deterrent to his reappearance.
He .Used the 8word and;Not (the Ax

fortified by the concurrence of. an-eminent clerical historian. This learned
writer, agreed with me that the ax did
not become-the "regulation" lethal in/

Conseroatice Conoention at
The great Conservative Convention at
Victoria, concluded with resolutions of
confidence in Hon. R. L. Borden and Premier McBride. A close run was made between Kamloops and New Westminster
for the honor of the next convention, Kamloops being selected.
An interesting resolution, and one that
was passed unanimously, was one urging
the local government to consider the question of government ownership and opera-
tionof telephone lines in rural districts.
Another resolution which was heartily
supported, and which receives the endorsement of every right thinking citizen, is
"That the members of this convention
again put themselves on record as
advocating that Canada shall be preserved
as a white man's country, and that it
heartily approves of the course which has
been consistently followed by the local government in respect to Asiatic immigration,
and as heartily condemns the policy of the
Dominion Government in this connecrion.
Another resolution commended the action of the local government in its effort to
to assert the rights of the province with
respect to the efficient control of the fisheries.

Sullivan) in Raymer's-Hall.

Tuesday night that Captain Riddley

the^ skating rink last Tuesday, between the Linemen^ and Cigar-
makers, resulting in 3-2 in favour

The revenue police of Montreal have
made a seizure on the premises" of the
Lowney company of a quantity of brandy,
and chocolate drops loaded with the same .
intoxicant. ^ As .a result of the seizure"'
warrants have been served upon about
thirty dealers, charging them with selling
liquor without a, license. Each chocolate
contained about half a teaspoonful of bra-
dy, and the drops ran about twent-five to
the pound.   ,,
Great Blast Set Off-at Prince Rupert.
'A huge puff, of smoke, through which
shot stumps arid massive rocks that were-
carried for,hundreds of yards into the harbour; a trembling of the earth similar to a
slight shock of   earthquake,' with a" dull
muffled roar, and 20,000 yards of rock in .
the bluff south of the  wharf was either
hurled into wate£ or broken up so fine by
the force ofythe explosion that steam shovels
will Be" able to handle it without the slight,
est difficulty.1. The scene" was witnessed by
the residents of Prince Rupert from the„
surrounding hilltops,'; arid'as, the 'shot is the
most successful one^put off so far, the eon-
tractors are jubilant.
For some weeks gangs of men have been
drilling coyote tunnels under this bluff
from the water's edge and on grade level."
Three of these tunnels which .averaged
75 feet in length, and are located 100 feet
apart were then cross-sectioned at' the end '
and half-way by tunnels 30 feet in length,
forming huge-'pockets"into which was
packed twelve tons, or the contents of a
thousand 25-pound cans of black powder.
The magazines were connected by wires
with a galvanic battery on the whjjrf, from
where the'J'sh~ots?"were fired' after the
tunnels had been filled up with loose rock
and hermetically sealed to prvent them
from blowing out.
Carrie Nation on the Warpath."
Mrs. Carrie'Nation, the'Amazon of pro- ,
hibition, has carried her vigorous personality and her vigorous tactics' across the
ocean to Bonnie Scotland. On her arrival
at Glasgow this gentle saloonlsmasher of
the States announced: "If you want to
wake people up, you must shock them."
It is'likely that .the canny. Scots do not'*
consider that they need arousing, at least
in the tender manner usually adopted by -
the, irresponsible  Carrie; and although a
large crowd met her at the station on her   -
arrival, they very inconsiderately, escorted
her to a licensed hotel, which she,immed-
iately - left   in   great, disgust. when  she
became   cognizant  of the  dreadful fact
^ After Glasgow} she paid a visit to the fair
city of Edinburgh, but was 'ejected from \
from many of the public-houses.   At one
she pointed to a customer and exclaimed. *
" Look at that" facet" which was distinctly '
personal, not to say impolite. But Mrs. ,
Carrie Nation" has Her own pecular idea* (
on these matters.

*   '.Cigarette Smoking-in ChimC"   ' :
The United States Consul at Nanking, in
a report on cigarette smoking in China
says:'     _-..v N   '    ',"' ^
"The demands forxigalrette smoking in
China today is oily^exceeded, ty * that for
kerojene. Nor is, this habit; confined alone
to the-male portiont of the population;
the females of all classes and' ages, from
ten years up, indulge as freely and openly
in cigarettes/and with as much apparent
enjoyment, as do their brothers,
" "The introduction of'this habit * among
the Chinese dates'back only, a few years,
audits universal spread, throughout the
empire has been astonishingly rapid. The
manufacturers say that their production is
up to the standard i and entirely free from
opium. The cigarette has superseded the
cumbersome water pipes heretofore so
common among the Chinese,' and it even
used by opium smokers, <. who" find an
added pleasure in smoking of as cigarette
after inhaling the opium fumes.
—"The unlimited advertising or the merits
of the various brands, through the medium
of flaring posters pasted on the doors and
walls of sacred temples, mission churches,
city gates and walk and other conspicuous
places, attracts the Chinese to the point of
experimental indulgence, for the poorest
coolie can find'the five cash (one-fourth
* 1
cent) necessary to purchase a 'cigarette.
The company practically enjoying a mono
pry of the cigarette trade in" China has
been compelled to increase-its plant to
keep up with the increased demand.''
