eeting of the
City Council
A meeting of the City- Council
was held on Monday last, a full
attendance of aldermen being
present, Mayor DeHart being, in
the chair.
The minutes of the previous"
meeting having 7 been read and
adopted, the following' correspondence was dealt with.
Canadian Fairbanks Co., re receipt of cheque.
Canadian Road Machine Co., re
scavenger waggon,
Dominion Securities Co.,' confirming wires and letters.
Chas. Clarke, re connecting C.P.
R. new works with  water system.
These   having   been  read  and
filed the police  report for April
was next dealt with.
Some little discussion ensued as
to the number of drunken and dis-
"' orderly people taken up, but little
was left to report.  ' .   *
Mr. H. H. Millie attended to ask
the council if they would agree to
the extending of his franchise for
say five or ten years. , He promised an improved system, so as
to make it more valuable to himself and present subscribers. He
asked that he might collect rates
the same as the council are how-
doing, and to give a rebate of a
certain amount if the account was
paid within ten daysMof .being
issued. The present plans meant
expending four or five~ days in
collecting accounts,-and he thought
_ that the system of rebate,, would
Telieve this task. When" asked by
the , council .if he , contemplated
making a faster service-he replied
that new .witch -boards would be
fixed next week, and these, would
relieve the operator of four different movements, consequendy. accelerating the service. "The installation of these switches would oc-
xupy Saturday night, all Sunday
and possibly up to noon on Monday, but the [service would be resumed as, quickly, as,possible. He
was quite' willing to pay for all
legal matters and publishing of
by-laws and asked jhe) council .to
give the matter their consideration1.
This matter having ; been,, disposed of for .He'-present. '    J'tr
The question of planting trees
was before the 'council. "-Several
trees had been? planted in the
various conspicuous streets', and in
order to finish Mayor DeHart had
given" 106 more elms.  .
Aid. Elliott remarked that' he
had gone into the matter of having
a water; trough in the,city, and , so
—far could not obtain a definite
estimate. The sum of $5 had been
mentioned for an ordinary wooden
horse trough. The question also
before the,council was the?locality
of the trough,' if it was /decided to
put one up.   ...'it.
Mayor DeHart did not advocate
it being in main street, but Aid.
Elliott did not mind if a site was
taken right by Kis shop 6s it was
greatly needed. The advisability
- of a drinking fountain being '■ attached was also discussed, -but; no
definite movement" was made in
the matter. ( -.
The Mayor-informed the council
that the agreements between the
A. ficTAahd' Messrs.' Crowley   &
Co. were going through, and the
deeds were being made out'   Mr.
'Harvey , had   surveyed .the^ land,
'and it was found that there would
'be sufficient {o make'V regulation
.rack, and leave a space _oI about
SjJ.feet.on,the north end, from the
itrack to the outside boundary rails.
}Mr. Harvey would set,oiit.hie pegs
,and grading could be comm-riced
.very.soon. '■•>'''    t\t .    * >r„      •,
,    In Wly ti) Aid. EkiUMaybr De-
Hart   explained   that   the   work
< would not cost much owing to.the
grading being only needed  in a
| few places, and where _ was need'
ed   the5 hauls   of filling, material
" were very' short.
Aid) Ball thought all work ought
1 to be put up for tender.
Mayor DeHart wishfcd for,the
building inspector's report on Raymer's building, and pointed out
that no plans were available with
Mr. Sutherland's signature on,
showing that they had been passed by the last council.
The Aldermen did not like the
look of , the wooden pillars used
in the front of the building, and
thought these ought to be of iron.
_ld. Cox pointed out that he
had heard iron was worse than
wood in case of fire. The council
left him to look further into this
It was moved by Aid. Rowcliffe,
seconded by Aid. Bailey that the
city clerk be authorised to request
H. W. Raymer to submit the plans
and specifications of his new building not later than the 24th of May,
Also to repair cement sidewalk
damaged while removing ,the
building across the street. -
\ The question of sidewalk repairs was largely gone into. Aid.
Cox did not think it would be a
success to repair the one injured
by Raymer's building- until after
that building was removed. He
pointed out that other sidewalks
wanted repairing.
Mayor DeHart did not think it
possible to go into the sidewalk
question until the assessment rolls
were returned.
The estimates of the Fire and
Water Committee were again laid
before .he council. It was generally thought that the Fire Brigade
had enough'hose for .present use.-
The hydrants were close together,
and the-present hose did not seem
in a very bad state of repair.
' Aid. Bailey did hot like butting
that item entirely-' out of the es-
tirriate, /.but would sooner see it
Aid. Elliott said he had estimal
ed as low as possible. 800 feet
had.been asked for by the fire
brigade, and he had cut it down to
500 feet.
Aid. Ball pointed out that the
present hose might get damaged
by either burning or bursting, and
it would be a sorry'1 plight to be
left with nothing to fall back upon.
Ald.*Bailey thought the idea Was
one of penny wise pound foolish,
If hose'was.wanted it ought to be
included in the estimate, but it was
decided to return to the matter at
no distant date., ,
After the water connections had
been made on Abbott Street, the
Mayor was sure a surplus of money
would be left over at this point,
and he suggested that that surplus
be expended in hose for fire, pur
Aid. Ball thought 400 feet would
be enough and that some fresh
couplings were wanted.
,Ald. Elliott remarked that he
had "already' sent for couplings.
He wished to add to his estimate
$120 ,for sprinkling streets, that
sum entailing 5 months work at
$40 a month. The life buoys
would -soon be placed on the
wharf,-he was waiting for their
arrival.' .Grappling irons had been
already prepared. ,
TKe following accounts were
^referred to the finance committee

J It was agreed to have the' fire
hall pjainted at once, also the inside repaired. Tenders to be put
out for the painting.   . ;
' The estimates of the Board of
Works was next takejn into consideration.
It was decided not to spend any
money on Gertrude Avenue as no
traffic went ^ down there. The
Mayor mentioned that „it was Jthe
widest  street   in   town,   and   he
5 60

thought as very few vehicles went
/down it last year, it was  needless
to expend money on it  this  year.
It' was . decided   to   repair Ellice
i Street, as far as the A. &T. grounds,
, and  to  expend   $150   on   Smith
1 Avenue, as there would be quite a
lot __pf traffic when the new C.P.R.
■ wharves are put in working order.
| It was  decided  to  proceed  with
i the other estimates as  laid   before
the council last week.
Aid.  Cox of  the   Health  Committee  asked   for   a   new   dump
wagon, as the present one  was' in
a terrible state, having been patched up and repaired,  it was  now
practically of no use.
J     Aid.   Ball   thought  that' in   the
estimates of the   Light  Committee
due consideration should be taken
as   to   what   ahould   be   directly
charged to the council  and   what
should be charged to working  expenses.    He took for example   the
salary of the City Clerk.     He utilises some   of  his   time  preparing
the  accounts  for light.     He  did
not think this ought to be charged
to general revenue.    Some portion
of the salary ought   to   be   written
off the general   working   expenses
of  the  electric  light.     The  light
was supposed to be  on  a  paying
basis, and to find out  if  that- was
so it was necessary  to   charge -up
all   expenditure  against  the  light
account.     While the light account
ought   to   be   credited   with   the
amount due' from the  Arc  Lights
in- the streets   and   other public
places. !   t
Mention was made . that at the
present time, during the ,rush of
work, the city clerk would require
some help and it was decided to
arrange for this, t
". It was moved by Aid. Elliott and
secopded by Aid. Rowcliffe that
the city clerk be instructed* to '_fe'E
the A. & T. debentures printed as
soon as deedswere signed," carried.
The meeting then adjourned to
meet again on Monday next*at

monthly ' meeting of the
Board of Trade was held in Raymer's Hall last 'night, only eleven
members being present. Mr. Pitcairn being in the chair. The
meeting which was due to start at
eight o'clock was greatly delayed
by the nori-attendance'of members.
After the minutes of the previous
meeting had had- been read and
adopted, the Secretary, Mr. R. B.
Kerr read the following correspondence.
Letter from the Noble Advertising Co., Vancouver, signed by C.
W. Esmond, re the issue*of advertising pamphlets.
F. R. Stewart & Co., re sending
some choice fruit for show at
Clement, of Montreal, Trade
with France filed.

Orchard's Guide book at a reduced rate.   ,' ^,
The Vernon Board of Trade,
. asking for a delegate to be appointed to represent Kelowna,
when Vernon sent "their delegate
to ask for the establishment of a
Land Registry Office at Vernon.
Mr. Keer in criticising this letter
sa*d it was useless to (think of
sending a 'delegate from Kelowna
to ask for a Land Registry Office
for the following reasons.
Vernon is too small to deman
such, a f project. Such towns as
Fernie," Rossfand, Kamloops and
Revelstoke stand a prior' chance,
while the Yale district is
to a Land Registry Office and
would'get it before Vernon. _He
pointed out that we only have on-
representative in ^Parliament, while
the boundary district-has^ two. It
was possible that as soon- as we
asked for a land registry office
through our one member, the'other
two for the boundary would want
one in their.constituency, .and under the circumstance would get it,
To send a delegate from this point
would mean a lot of' expense for
nothing, and he advocated writing
Vernon and explaining that the
Board did not see their way clear
to send a' delegate!
The   following   accounts   were
'recommended to be paid if"found
correct.      , _

It was proposed by Mr. Leckie
Mr. Herdman GoesJ-fishing.
. the Rev. A. W. K. Herdman
had an unpleasant experience the
other day, though he can now fortunately afford to laugh over it.
He and his little boy, fired with the
prevailing enthusiasm, went for an
afternoon's fishing  in  the Creek
The chairman thought this matter ought to be taken up and a
reply obtained as soon as possible.
The telegram was rather vague
but it implied that the Government
wished for a Kelowna representative and it was only right they
should have one. He wished the
Ma3ror was present so that his decision might'b'e arrived > at,' but _t
was possible that the Mayor wouId<_
have to be away' six months, and
he rather doubted if he could spare
such a long .period. He \vould
ask the board to name som«» practical men to be approached should
the Mayor be( unable to entertain
the project.
The following names were then
submitted! Mr. B. McDonald,"1 Mr.'
T. G. Speer,. Mr. H. B. Chaplin,
Mr. Boyer, sr., and Mr. F. A. Taylor. It was decided to arrange
this matter as quickly as possible
and'give a ( reply to Mr. Stirling.
At the present moment it was (impossible to exhibit as there' was,
vcy Htde fruit left. '/ It was' howV
ever proposed by Mr. KerV, seconded; by, Mr. Leckie'that Mr. Stirling,
be'advised that the Board 'recommend Mayor DeHart' to' fill > die
„Mr. Pitcairn asked the;,publicity
committee if anything "further jhad
been done about • the proposed
scheme of putting up a Kiosk for
the selling "of 'Kelpwria fruit at
,J Sicamous Junction'station.' ,.
>u > J he chairman or the committee, Mr. G.
Rose, replied that hothing i further had
been done in the mattei. He however,
wished to report that the pamphlets,, were
entitled] well on the way and he,had been looking
into the advisability of advertising in „one
of the papers in, the States. . The .paper
with about the largest circulation,. "The
Standard of the Empire" charged about
$50 a month for an , advertisement? only
about one inch in length and the width,of
only a single column, he did not thinkfthe
board could stand this expense and would
look for another paper with cheaper advertising rates and a good circulation.
Mr. C. Rose remarked that he had been
interviewed by Mr. Hudson with reference
to the purchase of a frame and'" photos to
be hung in the Hotel at' Sicamous, and
wished to' know what steps the board'
wished taken in this direction.
* Mr. Pitcairn was of the opinion that the
C.P.R. would not allow advertising matter
in their hotels, and if they did .he ^thought
the general tendency was to have a* frame
hung in the Royal Alexandra Hotel at
Winnipeg.' He suggested * thaO Mr. Kerr
be instructed to write the C.P.R. with  ref.

effort to disengage it. Mr. ..Herd
man, seeing his son's position, and
fearing that he might overbalance,
went to his assistance. The water
at this point had undermined the
bank, and as soon as Mr. Herdman
put his weight upon it/the ear^th
gave way, causing the reverend
gentleman to take an involuntary
plunge into the muddy steeam,
which was deep enough ^ at,that
part to reach up to his neck. He
had not much difficulty in getting
out again, _nd made his. way home
soaked to the skin, and with his
pockets full of mud, and feeling, in
his own words, "like a half-
drowned rat." What Mrs. Herd-
man said when he reached home
is not on record, but we understand
that the greater part of the .tallowing morning was spent in scraping
off the mud from his clothes.
seconded by . Mr; McTavislj that
all .correspondence dealing with
advertising be left in the'hands of
the , publicity committee to deal
with.—Carried. \A  '  ■
Mr. Kerr said he had-received a
pamphlet)1 < from the Dominion
Government on B.C., and although
up-to-date in some respects was
very out of date in others. Kelowna was marked up with a' long
-article on tobacco growing, and it
was set forth that a large tobacco
factory had just been started.
Grand Forks is mentioned 'as a
marvel,  as  having taken a gold
■.i_a? _.-..-.
Spokane show/neither is mention
made of the Gold Medal awarded
to .he Fruit Grower's Association
of Kelowna in competition with
the fruit growers of Washington,
Oregon and British Columbia, for
the best "collection* off fresh fruit
exhibited at the North-West Fruit
Grower's Association, at Vancouver in 1907. He did not think
this a fair phamplet to be distributed and thought the Board ought to
instruct him to write a stiff letter
pointingjout these facts. The matter was placed in thefhaftds of the
publicity committee to deal with.
\ The chairman said that he had
had a telegram handed him' by
Mr. Stirling, reading: Recommend

to the,-board.; This view, ,was finally
adopted. i
Mr. Kerr suggested advertising at Vernon.
He had heard that several people only
came as far as Vern,on, thinking 'that the
rest of the journey down the lake was a
kind of a swamp, \A few photo, there
might make them change their minds,^nd
go further down the lake.f
The chaitm__i,(Mr.1Pjtcaim,th«n ^askci
what steps were taken with  reference' to
the proposed CP.R. new sheds and wharf.
Mr. Bailey,informed h>B> .that .the plana
had passed through the council and ha^l
been signed. Mr.J.' P. Forde was to have
that day and start operations at once j, but
something had delayed him. He explained that the track waa due to •' run out to
Ellis Street and eventually to connect with
the tram lines making a country service. '
The questionof approaching the business men of Kelowna who do not belong
'to'the Board of Trade was di&usae'd.'but
no action was taken in the-mat_r. v^ .*.«.
•• Mr. Rose suggested that as. the. summer
months \vere now coming on, and the,attendances were j-becoming so j irregular,
something ought to be 'done iii the matter.
There was an executive committee and
lie would like to see them asked to attend
to the business.   -   ' {
This proposition was seconded by, Mr.
Buckland who remarked that in the event
of any important business being on hand
the Secretary, should call a general meeting, the general quarterly, meeting would
of course be attended by all the memberf.

Grumbling is the' order of the
day—that is, grumbling at the
weather. Certainly the reluctance
of the cold weather to yield to the
laws of nature, has caused some
little anxiety, but after all the season is not so late. Last year our
shores were visited with an early
spring and consequently an early
crop was experienced. It is interesting to take the dates upon
which fruit was ripe for shipping
last year, and by comparison we
shall see how early the season was.
As far as can be ascertained these
dates are as near correct as possible :—

Editor Orchard City Record,
Dear Sir,
I beg to thank you for placing
the position of the working man
re the postal arrangements so lucidly, yet forcibly in your last issue
and am assured that now Mr.
Bailey is acquainted with the facts,
he will be one bf thefirst to remedy
any inconvenience. In the matter
of a deputation, considering the
working men are so scattered in
the course of their several employments, I am afraid that a deputation would fall very flat; as when
they get home, they do not feel
like forming a deputation, and I
think that Mr. Bailey would rather
not waste time receiving a deputation. I think that now the matter
has been so plainly brooched, we
can leave it in his hands.
' Yours Sincerely,
A Working Man.
If you Want Your Jams to keep, they
should be put up with

Shortly after" midnight, an engine standing
in the pit outaide, .the';jRhyinheyVRailwajr'c
Company's lbcomotive "shedsivsuddenlyf
blew up. ^Portions of the engine weighing '
many tons!'were thrown many;feet;in'the -
air, and hurled to a distance of about sixty
yards., Smaller; fragments were scattered
over a wide area. Six men were in the
immediate vicinity at the time the explosion occurred, but up to the preaenl the
cause of the accident is unknown, j The
locomotive a brass domed, saddle tanked
engine, had been sent out shunting, and
had developed some defects in conne ction
with its injector, and had been brought
back to the shed for repairs. It had just
been put over the pit, and the fires, were
about to be withdrawn, when the explosion occurred. The driver, David Lewis,
had just left the engine to superintend the
drawing of fires, otherwise he would have
been killed, as it was he sustained injuries
that will take quite a long time to get over.
The fireman was instantly killed, , being
blown against another engine, and literally
dashed to pieces, The smoke stack was
lifted many feet in the air, and on dec ending dashed through the the roof of the
Bute engine house, falling on a spot yv here
a moment before a man was sitting a< his
supper. The injured are progressing
Uniforms Returned by Tram
Five hundred employees of the United
Tramways Company, struck work at Ful-
well. At this point the largest depot of
the company, some consternation was felt,
but the strikers places were soon, filled
from other points and the system was not
seriously delayed. The strikers demanded
the following agreement. Six days work
and one day rest each week. Extra payment for Bank Holidays. The abolition of
punishment for petty offences, and an
eleven hour daly. The demands were not •
acceded to, and a notice .was issued to the
effect that all uniforms had to be returned.
The strikers consequently marched in a
body to headquarters, and, returned, their
uniforms, receiving in exchange their two
days pay and license. The march of the
men in mufti, with their uniforms in
bundles on their shoulders,, was witnessed
by a large crowd. ,

Forged Borneo Stamps -    \-
An elaborate conspiracy to . defiaud
stamp,collectors has just, come to light.
J. Stewart Lowdenof Villiers Street Stiand
and Henry Harmer of Southcliffe on Sea,
were charged at Bow^Street with., conjpir-
acyto defraud the public, by, selling | post
age and revenue stamps of; British . North
Borneo, that were forgeries. . fr was not
suggested that there was any,fraud on the
revenue of the country, but it was owing
to a special issue being rare that forgeries
were made to, gull the public.
British North Borneo was one of the
countries which was originally made over
to the administration of a chartered j company until 1888, after this date the whole
of,the country was, ,made into a tBritish
Protectorate. The ,1887 "to 1890 issue, re.
mained valid until. December last, when
owing, to the.difcovery that excessive
forgeries .were extant, it wasj deemed
necessary to cancel the .whole issue. ' The
1894,issue was used, for. postal ,purposes,
which enchanced the.value of. the,,earlier
issues. Trading as the ]West End .Stamp
Copnpany, of Villiers street Strand, and
Herbert Mack & Co., of the same* address,
it was proved that several stamps were,,
spldat-high |priceg,7and~investigatiorr~dis~
covered, a plant withy litho plates and en-'
graying dies,to produce the,'1887 to 1890
issue, in a French engraver's office in Paris.
Correspondence was also found from H.
Mack, H. Mack and Co., and H. Mack
Limited., 'From the books it was also
found that large sums had been paid by
Mack, A rubber cancelling stamp, which
made ,a correct impress of the cancellation
mark on used, stamps was, unearthed and
'correspondence was found with reference
to stamps of Transvaal, British East Africa,
and m large number of other foreign countries. Minute instructions were given as
to perforation, paper and color and print',
ing details given. It is believed than an
immense stamp forgery will soon be
brought to light.   ,
Prince for Next Viceroy of India.'
A despatch to the Daily Mail from Calcutta asserts thatthe British Government
is considering the,question of, placing the
Viceroyship of India in the hands of a

has been,made that one of the sons of the
Prince of-Wales be trained for the post.

Early Monday morning some
bush fires were seen smouldering
near Enderby, nothing serious was
thought of the matter at the time,
but soon the stiff wind blew these
into a good blaze. By noon the
wind had increased in velocity, and
Mr.A H. Duncan, whose farm lies
two miles north of Enderby, on the
east side of the river, had noticed
a fire on the opposite side of the
river. No danger was anticipated
at the start, but the' wind soon came
in gusts and veered in every direction. It jumped the river, and
swept the east bank, and lightly-
wooded plateau, the Duncan ranch
being completely destroyed. The
fire swept on towards Masa, burn-
bridges enroute, gaining terrific
fury, and jumping from point to
point over clearing, and hay fields
at an awful speed. The mill and
machinery of the Rothsay Lumber
Co., and a portion of the lumber in
the yard were destroyed, and it
was only by hard fighting that Mara
station was saved. The post office
was burned. The mails and everything in connection were destroyed.
AtLambly three separate fires
seemed to have started, and with
the heavy winds which carried the
flames, there was no possiblity of
checking their progress. The saw
mills and box factory of \V. R.
Megaw, was laid in ruins. The
mill machinery being a total loss
with the exception of the boilers
which it is thought are not greatly
injured. The loss has been treme n
dous through the district, and calls
forth the deepest sympathy to those
who have been subjected to the
fate of this serious calamity.

The Bishop's Choice.        '
Sir Frederick Treves, the eminent snr-
geon, was recently consulted by a certain
Anglican Bishop. After a careful examination, Sir Frederic pronounced his verdict
and added, "Your lordship must go to
Algiers or some winter resort on the Riviera.
^''Impossible." replied the bishop, "quite
impossible. I have too much work to get
"Well," said the doctor, "you must make
your choice. It is either Algiers or Heaven."
"Dear me!" exclaimed the bishop, with a
sigh.   "Then I suppose it must be Algiers."

Canada is to be represented in the worldwide military conception, in connection
with the International Horse-Show in

was invited to send three horses and men,
to compete for a challenge cup, donated
by King Edward, and valued at $2500. The
cup will be given to a jumping contest,
over the society's course. The contest is
open to teams of three officers of one nationality. It was also stated that a team
could compete for the Connaught

Lake   Boat   Sinks.
Tne steamer Adrila Shores, and her
crew of sixteen men have been lost in the
depths of Lake Superior. The vessel
was wrecked during the -great storm of
last week, and found its doom between
Whitefish Point and Huron Island: "The
grave-yard of the lake." No trace of the
missing men has been found, and it is .believed they all perished on the boat. The
story of the wreck was brought to Duluth,
Minnesota, by Capt. Thomas Stevenson, of
the Northwind. He received it from the
captain of the steamer, Simon Langell 'at
Portage Lake. The Shores had been missing for nearly a we.k, and the news of
her loss was not surprising. A telegram
from the owner admits that they believe
the ship and crew lost. She was commanded by Captain Homes.
_ Seeding Nearly Finished.
. Reports from all parts of the prairie

farmers are expectant ol a good crop.
Nearly 90 per cent, is now in the ground,
and before Friday the rest will be completed. Fine weather with rising temperature now prevails through the prairie
west, and in the fall wheat country of
Alberta, it has turned very warm: conditions are so'favourable, that the farmers
are getting things in with a rush.

Death Caused bu Curiosity.
A strange death occurred at 'Toronto
last week and one whereby Toronto's
street cars .were stopped for fully a quarter
of an hour. , Light went out and factories
ceased running. The cause of the accident was a fierce thunder storm which
rose from Beamville. The wires of the
electric light company were broken, and
out of curiosity, one Richards of that locality, waa attracted by the sparks and went
to investigate. This was at two o'clock in
the morning and at daylight some neighbors found his lifeless body, burning up
across the grounded wires. , Manager
Fleming at once directed / the generating
plant at Niagara Falls to stop, while the
body w*s removed. Thousands 'of Volts
were passing through at the time and' it
would have been fatal for -anyone to remove the body before this was done. The
whole industry of Toronto was tied up as
a result.

Bifl Blaze  at Barnet.
The Northern Pacific Lumber Company's
Mills at Barnet, were totally destroyed by
fire last Thursday. The fire which started
shortly before midnight, gained headway
so rapidly that the employees, who were
quickly on the scene, were of no avail to
stop the conflagration. The loss is estimated at about a quarter million dollars, and
very little insurance was carried. Much
lumber, however, is still on hand, and extensive timber limits are held by the
company, and it is probable the rebuilding of the mill will start at once. Several
C. P. R. shed adjacent to the mill were
burned, along with some freight cags which
were standing on a siding. Had it not
been for the C. P. R. and the Vancouver
fire brigade coming quickly on the field,
the surrounding district would have suffered greatly. The C. P. R. estimate • their
damage at about $5,000.
Grain Will be Shipped West.
The grain crop of Alberta and Saskatchewan, will in future be shipped through
Vancouver, via the Horn, and across' the
Isthmus of Panama. This is the decision
of,a meeting of C. P. R. officials at Winnipeg last week, and means the shipment of
about 75,000,000 bushels, across the Rocky
Mountains. Manitoba's crop of 100,000,-
000 bushels, will go to Europe via Montreal, as heretofore.

Chinks tri] to Bribe Mayor.
Two Chinks tried to bribe Mayor Robinson of Kamloops, in the matter of an
assault case, and are now in gaol, their
names are, Ah Sing, and Louie, the latter
being at the same time, cook at the'Royal
Inland Hospital. Previously, one Fred
Bennet, was before the magistrate, charged
with doing damage to Louie's, place in
Chinatown. He established an alibi and
was given his freedom. In the meantime,
Sing and Louie waited on the'' mayor at
his home, and promised him money if he
would impose a heavy fine on Bennett, or
sentence him to a long term in gaol. The
Mayor told them to wait upon him in the
City,Hall, and a constable was placed behind the screen. Louie offered, the Mayor
$10,00 if he would grant him his-wishes,
and said he would give him some more
money when the deal was through. ' The
chief then effected the arrest.
Deaths by Gas Blotoout.
Two unidentified foreign miners, were
killed in a serious accident that occurred
in No. 7 mine, Coronado, B. C, owned by
the Crow's Ne'st Pass Coal Co. A big
blow up of gas and coal occurred. The
blow up caused a large quantity of pent
up gas to burst, shaking coal with terrible
force into dust, and it was impossible for
the men in the locality' to escape death.
Luckily, the accident occurred on the night
shift: had it occurred in the day, serious
numbers would have been -killed. Some
time ago a like explosion' occurred at the
same camp, causing the death of a number of, men. It was so serious that the
Government closed No. I mine, in which
the accident occurred,

Dear Mildred:—
Don't you wish you were in Kelowna
having a good time with all the girls and
boys? It is,a very pretty place, and I
have lots of fun playing with my neighbors
in the summer' time, and that pleasant
time will soon be here again, and the trees
will be out in leaf.
Last summer we used to take our lunch
up on the mountain on Saturday morning
and would stay till about two o'clock and
then come home.
I can play tennis a little. I remember
the game I had with a little boy last summer and I won.
I used to go bathing nearly every day in
the lake, but I can't swim yet.
There is some beautiful scenery around
here. Crawford's Falls is a nice place
most people say, but I haven't been up
yet to' see it
Last summer we' had such a nice time
at our Sunday School picnic. We had it
at Okanagan Centre. We played games,
and watched the boys., playing baseball, then gathered pretty stones by the
water, till it got quite late, and then we
had supper, and when the Okanagan boat
came in we went hbme and was pretty
tired when we got there.
' They have lots of picnics and seem 'to
find nice places to take them to.'
} I have been across the lake to the peach
orchard and had some fruit,  and   it is  a
very pretty place and I   had  a very  nice

Hector McLean,
Chigwell, Alta.
Dear Hector:—
The city of Kelowna is situated on the
east side of Okanagan Lake, which affords
an excellent swimming place during the
summer months. In one place it gets, very
deep within a few feet of the shore. Here
there is a spring board, off of which many
delight in diving. There is , also another
place for beginners, where a person can
easily wade out a hundred yards.
Other times you will be enjoying a game
of baseball, football' or lacrosse. They
have already started baseball and football.
After you have had a game, and you are
hot and tired, it refreshes you to have a
swim. The regatta is what we are all
looking forward to.
When you begin to get tired of city life,
you can take a g_n5and fishing tackle, and
go out for a day of sport in the country.
If you like, you can go down to the docks
and fish. Sometimes you will catch a
trout, but they are not so plentiful as in
other parts of the lake. Sometimes we
boys catch squaw fish and suckers and
sell them to the Chinamen.
We are not always doing the above
things. We have to hoe the garden and
water it. Besides cutting and bringing in
the wood and all the rest of the chores.
During the summer holidays we some'
times get a job and earn some money,
which is spent about as fast as it is made.
The general placea where work is found
during the summer is at the sawmill,
canning factories, dn the farms, on the
streets, put up buildings, etc.
Yours truly,   -

Result of Investigation Made by
Forest Expert in Alberta."
Forestry in Western Canada (as everjy.
where else) means far more than 'the
planting of trees. The first step in' forestry is the preservation of forests already
existing, and, as far as Canada—east and
west alike—is concerned^ that means the
keeping out of fires. 'Something in this
direction has already been done in Canada,
but much remains to be done.
Forest fires in the Rockies, their effects
and means of preventing them aire discussed by Mr. H. R. MacMillan, Asst.
Inspector of Dominion Forest Reserves, in
the December- issue of the Canadian
Forestry Journal. His article gives the
result of investigations made by him during the season of 1906 in the Crow's Nest
district of Southern Alberta, more accurately defined as the valley of the' middle
fork of the Old Man river between the
Livingstone range and the western boundary of Alberta.
Originally this whole region was heavily
timbered, so the reports, of explorers and
other early visitors to the district say, with
the exception of a small area.(eighteen
square miles in extent) situated above
timber line. "So numerous and so disastrous have been the fires following..' in the
wake of travellers, settlers and railways,'
Mr. MacMillan writes, "that at present,' of
the original 212 square miles of forest,
only 33 square miles remain." Moreover,
the timber which is easiest to get at is
always the first destroyed, and what is left
is situated at high levels and in other
places where it is hard to get at.
Not only has the timber originally on
the land been destroyed, but in some
cases all possibility of producing, without
going to an enormous expense for artificial
planting, more timber (or anything else)
on the land has been taken away. In
this Crow's Nest Valley alone there are,
out of the 212 square miles of its total
area, 85 square miles of such land. Originally covered by a heavy forest of fir, it
is now but a "poor, gravelly prairie, unfit
for agriculture and of very little use for
grazing." One fire alone does not usually
have this effect, but "a second or third
fire rarely fails to kill all the forest' reproduction" (i,,e„ the little trees) "to destroy
the remaining seed trees, to burn' off the
upper layer of soil, and leave a desolate
waste" such as the country just spoken of.
On portions of this area nature has
made a good start toward creating a new
forest. Sixty square miles of the area are
covered by a dense growth'of young trees,
the land so covered lying too high on the
hillsides and being too rough, stony and
gravelly to be fit for agriculture < or valuable for grazing. All that this area requires in order ,that it may again be covered with dense forests is protection - from
fire. '""
Thus fire protection is obvionsly the
great need of the region, and the Department of the Interior, through its Forestry
Branch, is devising means to this end. So
far, the measures used for the protection
of forests from fire in. Canada / have consisted of the patrol"of the' forests by
rangers, who constantly travel through the
forest, keep a look-out for fires (often discovering and extinguishing in. their beginnings fires which, rftglected, would
burn over miles of territory), fight fires
and warn campers and travellers against
the careless use of fire. This patrol will
in all probability form the basis of the
system of protection eventually put in operation, supplemented . by the use of
"look-outs', and the telephone.
