City Council
Chief of Fire Brigade Creates Lively Discussion
Team t(J iPlay in Park. '
A meeting of the city council
was held on Friday last, a full attendance of aldermen being present, the mayor in the chair.
The minutes of the previous
meeting having been read and
adopted the following correspondence was'filed,  i
A- letter from R. B. Kerr re
Meugen's accident.
Canadian Westinghouse Co.,
re installing plant.
Mayor DeHart explained that it
was advisable for the city to get
two wheel scrapers, as they were
badly needed for the old A. & T.
. grounds and Park.
• Aid. Elliott thought one might
be bought, but suggested trying to
borrow one from Mr. Stirling* or
" else a Government one. He knew
of three or four hand scrapers, and
was of the opinion that they might
do. They already belonged to the
city. - ■
_The Mayor and .several bf the
Aldermen did not know  of their
existence, and a «proposition was
set forth by Mr. Ball that an inventory should be  _.ade  of  the  city
property and kept in  the  council
chamber.     He also  suggested  a
brand being procured so  that all
. city goods could be branded with
the city's name. - The proposition
■   was immediately taken up  and - a
'motion was' carried that a branding
iron should be-ordered for branding the city tools.'
'   The  Mayor "explained  that the
^' race"___t had been surveyed and
"it was found necessary toTii&'U_r. a
./slough."'For this'work" a wheel
. .scraper was  necessary.* Jt .would
--also come in7handy7 for  .he park
.   and roads;   It was'agreed to  procure one at  once, and  to  fit up
box culverts, 2  feet-wide  and ^2
feet deep with a 2 inch  plank on
top.   The Mayor also  asked  Mr.
Bailey to have the road  running
alongside the track repaired so  as
" to allow traffic Jo pass in safety.'
Aid.   Cox   asked   if   the   new
Cannery was to be started, on..
The Mayor was of  the opinion
that it would start building soon,
but reports had been" sent about of
frozen crops,   and * nothing   had
been done inthe matter since that
-  view was taken of the situation.
The   question xof building the
power house was  next discussed.
It was set forth  that Mr.. Thomas
had plans for the walls ready, but
had not yet had  time  to  go  into
frame work.
. The Mayor waB of the   opinion
 thst  yr!_- ~ on * tH* foundstions.
could go ahead at once. As far as
he could see by the present plans
the door waa too far away from
the smoke stack. The plans were
to provide a galvanized iron .roof
and a sawdust bin, and carrier
would be provided to work by the
machinery of the power house.
A cement .flbor for the boiler room
was figured on, and the total cost
set out was $4,000, The matter
was left in the hands of Aid. Rowcliffe to see what he could do in
the way of starting* the foundations.
The next question raised was
the painting of the Exhibition
buildings which are now removed
into their place.
Aid. Elliott suggested a fire proof
paint being applied. But the rest
of the Aldermen thought the red
color would look ungainly and too
1 - The. fylayor, wished to' explain
that • the building had- been repaired and that Mr. .Raymer had
had instructions to put in glass as'
soon as painting was completed.
Aid. Ball wished the word A. or
T. to be dropped in future in connection with the building, and that
it should in future be  called the
Exhibition building and grounds.
Aid. Elliott explained that   he
* had seen Mr. Samson' with reference to the account sentjn by him
. and had tried to adjust it, but- Mr.
Samson did not agree to any adjustment.   He explained  that the
, money was wanted for fixing up
the fire hall with linoleum.
Mr. Elliott thought that Chief
Hidson ought to be given another
room and that the whole fire hall
should be used by the fire brigade.
Aid. Ball pointed out to the
council that a time would come
when they would have to obtain a
larger safe. He suggested that as
various valuable papers were kept
in the ofnce.and the safe accommodation was not enough, a galvanized iron box might be procured
and placed in a position where it
would be easy to get at in case of

for the council's permission to build

meet again on Monday, June .4th,
at 8 p.m.

A meeting of the city council
was held in the council chamber
on Monday night. Acting Mayor
Bailey, Aldermen Rowcliffe, Ball,
Cox and Elliott being present. The
minutes of the previous meeting
having been read and adopted the
following correspondence was
dealt with.
Letter from T. W. Thomason, re
audit of accounts.    Filed.
' From Claude P. Jones, re  plans
of city park. ' _.    ~  ,    -
' 'Mr. Jones informed  the  council
in his letter that he was unable - to
compete for the'prize owing tbtu»
time being' too short.        , _-#
' The ' clerk   was , instructed   to
write asking for the return "of  the
An estimate for the concrete
foundations of the power house
was also read and filed.
Aid. Elliott called upon Chief
Samson, who was present, to explain why he would not accept
the adjustment of his account.
Chief Samson explained that a
certain agreement had been made
verbally with the council, which
made the charges legitimate, and
he could not see why-the account
could not be paid' as' sent in. •• His
salary had been agreed upon both
for watering the streets and for
looking after the fire hose.
By Aid. Cox it was explained
that no special amount was ever
agreed upon, but that- some provision ought to be made for the
care of the hose and the equipment in the fire hall. \
 Chief SamsQn_r,ointed_out that
his work had been heavy. He had
to look after the boots and waterproofs, and collect them after a
practice. He also had to hang up
the hose to dry. Last year, he
added, the hose had.not been hung
up and properly dried, consequently it had rotted.
Aid. Elliott was of the ppinion
that a quantity of the work was
done on the city's time, but the
chief explained it was all done
after five o'clock.
Acting Mayor Bailey"was of the
opinion that it was absolutely
necessary to have the hose- well
looked after, and this had been
done by Chief Samson after sprinkling the streets.
Aid. Elliott did not think the
street sprinkling contract had been
carried" out. He had not seen the
work done every other day as the
contract stated, and could .mention
four or five occasions when the
work was left undone. .
, Chief Samson did not know of
any- occasions, except when the
streets were not watered owing" to
rain having < fallen during .the day.
Aid. Ball thought that if they
were going to be sprinkled in that
way all the year through it w_s
not worth paying for".
Chief Samson went on further to
state that no charge had been
made for watering the park for'the
sports committee. ,
Aid. Ball said that had nothing
to do with the council; the - sports
committee had to pay for that and
the matter could not be dealt
with until it was put before the
council as a charge. He did not
think the council ought to pay for
aervices not rendered.
Mr. Samson said that there was
a mistake in the charge for false
alarms which would be rectified.
Aid. Ball and Elliott were willing
to give what was right but did not
like to be imposed upon.
Aid. Elliott said the fire brigade
had always appeared antagonistic
towards the ciiy council. He did not
know why, but from the start- the
fire brigade had thought they could
impose upon the council and practically run them.' He further
explained that the fire brigade gave
a certain amount of time to the
city, and- at the same time the
council were giving more than the
fire brigade.
Mr. Samson explained that at
Vernon, $1 a man is paid for
practice, $1 an hour for first hour
of fire and 50c. every subsequent
hour, and he thought some arrangement ought to be made to that effect here.
Aid. Elliott said he knew,* and
belonged to the Vernon Volunteer
Brigade when no such sums were
Aid. Ball suggested a^ grant being made.
Acting' Mayor Bailey thought
the discussion had better be disposed of. %
Aid. Ball explained that'in his
estimation the discussion was only
"with Mr..Samson, and not with the
Fire Brigade.    ,     _- »
Mrl Samson urged a decision.
Aid.   Bailey   said r the    council
would decide nothing further, and
therefore Mr. Samson -need - carry
no report away with him. ',
; Mr.-Eastman attended and asked
leave to grade a certain portion of
the park so as to provide for a good
baseball diamond, Aid. _ Elliott
wished to know if the .team would
like permission to use the exhibition grounds, but Mr. Eastman
thought the park more central and
the exhibition grounds practically
useless, except in the case of a holiday. Mr. Eastman was informed
that the matter would be taken up
again during the evening and he
would be advised. It was considered by the aldermen a good clean,
lively game and permission was
afterwards granted. '
Aid. Ball explained that a deputation consisting of Dr. Boyce,
Chief Hidson, and himself had
made .an inspection of the Royal
Hotel premises and had ordered a
cSsspool 8 feet by 18 to 24 feet to
be put in with a uniform ditch to
reach water line. This was on the
same plan as the Lake View property had been done.
Ald.Cox said MissMartin wished
to hold a strawberry feast in connection with the Methodist Church
Aid. Cox had given permission for
this to be
same verified by the council.
Aid. Ball contended that permission should be given provided
there was an understanding that
the paper left was cleaned up.
The attention of the council was
next drawn to the cuttings which
were being hauled from the mill, it
being set out that several were
hauled through the street and
dropped off the wagofis. The following motion was carried:
Ball-Elliott—Attention having
been called to the state of Bernard
Avenue being littered with blocks
of wood, that Chief Hidson be instructed to require the party or
parties responsible for the same to
have these blocks removed within
24 hours of the chief's notice. Chief
Hidaon to be requested to keep a
close watch over this business with
a view to prevention in future.
Aid. Cox said that the plans of
Raymer's building had not been
< Aid. Elliott thought the opera
house ought to be looked into as
there was not sufficient ventilation.
,. Aid. Cox in an animated speech
wished it to be known that he did
not a'gree with the report made in
the press, that the men employed
by the city should be cut down in
wages. He was -surprised at Mr.
Rowcliffe making mention of $1,50
a day, and pointed out that it was
impossible for a working man to
live' on such a wage.   He had sym
pathy with the working man and
thought that no work should be
contracted under $2.50 a day. He
had spoken to Mr. Clement, who
employed big labour and had
found that he paid $2.50 a day and
in some cases $2.75 for an extra
goocj man. Cox went on further
to say that if the city expects people
to work for $1,50 a day they will
soon have nothing but Chinamen
to work for them.
It was agreed to sell the rails
round the A. & T. Grounds for the
best price obtainable, the motion
being put as folluws:
Rowcliffe-Cox—That the chairman of the Agricultural and Recreation Grounds be authorized to
dispose of fence rails at.best price
The following acounts were referred to the finance committee to

asked for leave to haye a screen

The chief was also asked to look
out for a newsroom, as hia-.quarter«

;The tender of C. G. Clement for
the foundation of the power house
was' discussed and it was decided
to ask him to quote for the work
by the cubic foot. The Police Report was held over until the next
meeting.    -       _
»   The   following    motions    were
carried:  - " .'

drive with utmost care within city
limits, at a speed not to excee 10

An interesting game of baseball
was witnessed last Thursday on
Dr. Boyce's field when the Kelowna team met Summerland in a stiff
tussle for victory.
During the afternoon the Summerland team arrived by the
"Naramata," and directly made
their way to the field of action. At
the start the score remained about
even, and very slow scoring was
the order of the day, but after the
sixth innings s Summerland forged
ahead, and made the home team
somewhat uneasy as to the result.
A good move was made byvJKel-
owna in the eighth, and at this
point the exciting part of the game
commenced, Kelowna regained
confidence and the forms of several of the players were seen stealing
bases. Eastman seemed to loose
his head, he played a good^ game
as pitcher, but lacked in batting
The Umpire, Mr. Daniels, was
several times needlessly approached • by the opposing team, but
eventually a satisfactory decision
was made in which Mr. Daniels
shined as a first-rate judge.
The opposing team certainly
played a good game, and evidently
came down with the idea of. beating their antagonists, perhaps with
a good .margin. This would have
been the eventual outcome of the
game had not Kelowna made, four
good well earned" runs in, the
eighth innings. The result-however fell in favor 'of Summerland
who played „ an excellent Jgame,
scoring ten.\_ runs 'against, .their
opponents nine. '
. The Summerland boys having
won, their game dined at the Lake
View Hotel.and .afterwards mem-
bers^of" hotht_earris attended the
show at the Opera House, where
they heard their doings severely
criticised by that inimitable comedian, Teddy -Webb..
. The fair sex were among' the
best rooters, taking quite an interest in the .game, and . severely
chastising (byword of mouth) those
that had the misfortune to make a
false strike or a miscalculation between the bases. Some • of the
best games in the large cities
could not have been more interest-,
ing or excitable than' that which
was played last Thursday.
Kelowna Beats Vernon in
Football Match.
Few spectators were present to
witness the football match between
Vernon and Kelowna in the city
park last Wednesday, but despite
the poor attendance a good game
was experienced. The'Kelowna
boys had the --est of the gamff
throughout, although it waa only
by good combination that they'
won the game. About six thirty
the referee blew his whistle and a,
hard tussle for supremacy ensued,,

San Francisco Opera Company
The San Francisco Opera Co.
gave a first rate performance of
Florodora before a crowded house
last Thursday. The play was acted
under difficulties, and many of
the scene luxuries that usually   at-
 -_— -____* -    . »______-	
tend hrst-class productions, had to
be foregone because the hall had
not yet been supplied with suitable
machinery for holding the scenery.
The scene which remained the
same throughout the production
was constructed from pieces of
"Queen Esta," "She Stoops to Conquer" and the "Pirates of Penzance," all local shows given here
in which the management found
use for the machinery.
The chief character was Mr.
Teddy Webb, a favorite in' these
parte ,and ' a first-class comedian.
He was ably supported by his
wife, Miss Amy Leicester, as Lady
Holywood, who sang her song
Tact" in full operatic strain. Another success was scored by Miss
Mabel Day as Dolores, her song
"The Queen of the Phillipine
Islands" being encored several
Mr. Teddy Webb as Tweele-

made to a crowded house kept
everyone in roars of laughter. His
skit on the baseball boys was very

The Westbank Sawmill is
now turning out lumber in
great quantities, and a talk with
the manager, Mr. Meurling,
brings forth the fact that no
less than twenty-two men are
engaged by the mill itself,
while some fifty or sixty families are located about the
townsite. It is possible that
this burgh will grow into quite
a large centre before many
years have gone by.
At present the conditions of
transportation are very difficult, and it would seem as
though the little town is ignored by the C.P.R. officials. The
best way to reach the locality
is by way of Hall's Landing, a
point that the C.P.R. boat does
not touch. It prefers to
stop at Gellatly's. Here, for
some reason, a padlocked gate
is stretched across the road
that leads to and from the
Westbank townsite, and should
a team wish to come to or from
that point it is bound to travel
via Hall's Landing, and thence
by way f of Z tKe foreshore to
Gellatlay's, or else travel the
roundabout route to the ferry
landing.   Taking into considr
road runs direct from Hall's
Landing to V(.estbank, it is a
wonder thatthe G.P.Rv boats
do not "touch there in preference to .stopping where a pri-
Tyate road is blocked by a' padlocked gate and direct team
communication shut off. The
traffic from Gellatlys. is practically nill, while a connection
at Hall's Landing would be a
boon to Westbankites, both for
their provisions and general

Dear Sir:
Could you tell me the best way
to can peas so that they will keep
for a long time. I have tried the
many different ways advertised in
books, but have found them to be
useless if the peas have to be kept
for a long time.
Thanking you in anticipation,

M-iybr to Aid. Cox, with Vek.
erehce to, the new Cannery on
Manhattan beach will not be
received very favorably by the
majority of farmers; The conditions that were set but in the
early spring, the display of
tenders, together with the report thatthe building was to
be finished by the first of June,
in many cases prompted farmers to put in a larger acerage
of tomatoes, small fruits and
vegetables, ih the hope that
they wpiald be repaid for their
trouble, and would get higher
prices for their gooojs. Now,
although the report goes that
the Cannery may start building thia year it cannot be ready

Editor Orchard City Record
Dear Sir,
In the report of the city council
meeting in your last issue I notice
that Alderman Rowcliffe stated
that he had men working for him
at $1.50 per day, exclusive of
board and lodging and that they
were glad to work for this rate
of pay.
In the case in question Aid.
Rowcliffe managed to obtain labor
at the above rate by getting greenhorns fresh out-N from the Old
Country, who had not been in this
country long enough to be acquainted with the rate of wages
and the cost of living here. These
men getting an offer of work were
glad to accept same without
further enquiries.
Another instance of this method
of employing fresh arrivals is
shown in the case when the worthy
Aid. got men to clear bush at $15
per acre, he being well aware that
no man could do this and make a
living wage. The usual price for
this work is $25 to $3.0 per acre.
How. would Aid. Rowcliffe himself
like to work for such a wage?
Would it he possible to pay board
and lodging in this city, let alone
putting'any thing aside for a rainy
day; on the above mentioned sum ?
When the City Tathers set the
example of this method of sweated
labor they are opening the door to
aliens entering the city, and driving out the respectable hard working man. The business men in their
own interests and that of the
ratepayers know that cheap labor is the dearest in the long
run and such labor reduces the
expending capacities of the city.
TYours truly,

Tyrant   Rule  of   the  Autocrat   of the
Parisian Flat House.
The "concierge" is considered to be
the bane of the Parisian Hat dweller's
existenee. His functions iiro supposed
to be the following:    ' ,
The first nnd most Important is to
collect the rent on quarter day; .ifter
that he must .see that the tenants do
not surreptitiously remove. The latter
precaution seems to be" somewhat un-
necessary, as rents in Paris are always
paid in advance.
He should also bring up your letters
at least twice a day, but as the con-
clergo is generally a stout, middle aged
woman who has a decided objection to
climbing -tnlr. the latter regulation remains somewhat of a dead letter.
In Paris the front door of most
houses Is generally closed at 10 o'clock.
After that time admittance can only bo
obtained 'by ringing a bell. The concierge Is obliged to open the door, and
she does this, as soon ns she Is awake,
by pulling n rope which hangs by her
If she Is u sound sleeper and you are
accustomed to come home late at night,
the best thing lo do is to look for another flat, as the concierge will put you
down as a ''bad tenant" aud make
things as unpleasant for you as possible.
If you never stop out late at night,
receive very few friends nnd fee her
heavily at Christmas, the concierge
will consider you as a "good tenant"
until you give notice to leave., when
her interest in you suddenly vanishes.
As there Is nothing more to be expected from you and the incoming tenant is obliged to give a substantial tip,
called.a "denier a Dleu," she is anxious to "speed the parting guest" as
much as possible.
The concierge does sometimes make
it-final effort to extract something more
from you by attempting to make you
pay a franc for every nail knocked in
the walls of your flat, but this has been
decided to be illegal and may be safely
But the Parisian concierge is really
unpopular because she represents a
landlord.—London Mail.

And What Happened When the Missive
Was Finally -Recovered.
The vagaries of the postal service
are sometimes beyond the understanding of the layman. In. March of last
year a man in.New York received a
letter from a friend In England, written when on the .int of sailing for
Philadelphia, urgently requesting him
to return a loan of $10. The. man who
wrote the letter needed funds and
would the debtor kindly send the
money to'him, care of the steamsh.p
Hne at Philadelphia? The man in New
York saw that his friend would reach
Philadelphia within a "day or two, so
he promptly clapped a ten dollar bill In
an envelope and addressed end mailed
It. A week later he was apprised by
mail that the money had not arrived.
Both men made a diligeut search for
the missing letter. But it could not be
found. So the debtor gave his friend
a check and forgot about his $10, set-
.ting down its loss to the dishonesty of
some intermediary who had handled
the envelope.
Imagine his surprise "when one day
eight months later he received his letter from the dead letter office in Wash-"
ington. It .was covered with postmarks and much battered, for it had
traveled many thousands of miles.
back to England, around the United
Kingdom and to America again, but
the money was safe inside.
Chuckling, he met his friend a few
minutes  later  and   showed   him   the
ten dollar bill.
"How's that for luck?" he queried
"Great," replied his friend. "Say. old
man, you couldn't lend me that for a
day or two, could you?   It's like picking money up In the street for you, and
J^could make use of It Just now."
Sadly-tbe bill was handed over
"What's the use of such wonderful occurrences?" .ruminated the "lucky"
Fatal Daah for Liberty
As the 10:45 train was proceeding from
Bath to Bristol, a remarkable attempt at
escape from justice was witnessed. When
the train was running through Manyots-
freid at a speed of abot 40 miles an hour,
the communication fcord was pulled violently. When the train stopped an exciting • ]
chase was in progress. A man who was
evidently badly wounded was being chased
by two others. After a considerable distance the pursued man was caught up, but
within a short time died of his injuries.
It appears the man .was travelling from
Bournemouth with two detectives,and suddenly made a dash for liberty. The detectives held a portion of his clothing, but
he jumped out onto the line and made off
as fast as he could. His injuries hampered
his running, otherwise he might have got
Shelter for Stray Cats,
The Marchioness of Donegall has formally opened a shelter for stray and starving
cats, which has been established by Our
Dumb Friends League at Esherly Road
West Green, Tottenham. In a speech
Lady Donegall said the shelter was needed
in a good many places, nothing was more
pitiful than to see the poor animals starving in the streets in anguish, when people
have gone for their annual vacations. Already thirty residents are in the shelter.
Car Conductor as Detectioe.      .
In the early hours of the morning a man
jumped on a car in the Balham Road and
took his seat in the corner ofthe car. The
conductor noticed that the man was weary
and had his head badly cut, this was on
April 23rd, and very little attention was
paid to the man. Shortly after the passenger had left the car, the conductor heard
of a large jewellry robbery in the High
Road Balham and associated his passenger
with the affair. He did not see the man
again until May 14th, when he boarded
his car at the same place.' When the car
reached Clapham Road he called a policeman and had his passenger arrested. He'
who gave his name as Frederick Morgan,
struggled with the policeman, but was
taken into custody. In his pockets were
found rings, tie pins, and various other small
articles of jewellry. It was then discovered
that the shop had been again broken into
that morning. In committing Morgan for.
trial, the magistrate praised the conductor
on his shrewdness, at the same time remarking that he ought to be rewarded. ' '

necessary to have him always accompanied

that he is so irresponsible for his actions,
that he has to be carefully watched. At a

Facts and Figures Shoioing Actual
Conditions—Business Benefited
Drunkenness Decreased
The statements that are made wherever
a campaign is- on were made most emphatically at.Toronto Juction. "It will kill
business." "The grass will grow in the
streets." " If you carry Local Option you
will be able to fire a cannon down our
Main street and hurt no one." Some believed this and voted to keep the bar.
What are the conditions to-day inToronto
Junction ?     ,
The papulation has increased fifty." per
cent., and the assessment is seventy-five
per cent, greater. The average wealth in
1903 was $470 per head, and in I9Q5 it
was $542.:L-The assessment for 1906 is not
yet compiete. Hotel property is assessed
for more to-day than when a bar-room was
a part of the outfit. This does not look as
though Local Option destroyed the value
of the hotel property.        J
One banker said, "We have $100,000
more in our savings department than we
had three years ago.
Land values have increased. Lots that
sold for $40 a foot in,bar-room days have
since sold for $80 per foot and "are now
held for $100, and rents for places and residents have advanced very greatly.
That is the business side.    What about
the morals of the town ?    I quote an extract
from a statement signed by the Chief of
Police:.." The closing of the bar has had a
wonderful effect on the young men of the
town.   It is a rare thing to see any of the
young men of the town under the influence of liquor;   in   fact,   drunkenness  is
seldom seen on the public streets compar-:
ed with what it  was   under   the   license
system.   It has done away with the treating system that was such a common practice.     The   hotels   have   just   as    good:
accommodation for  the  travelling  public-
as under the license system." ■• ''
An ex-mayor, a merchant here for many
years, predicted dire results if the act was
passed, says he is free to admit that he
was mistaken. Local Option has been a
great benefit 'to the town, and the man
who votes to bring back the bar-room runs
a fearful responsibility.
A dry goods man says: " Notwithstanding increased competition, my business is
much better to-day. Families that had
.little-o spend-in thedays of _ee-bar-_oon_
are spending more now, and are bnying a
better class of'goods. Some who asked

Such a development cannot be explained by the general progress of the country.
It most certainly indicates that the money
that was formerly spent at the bar is now
being spent upon the necessaries of
A prominent manufacturer said: "Local
Optron is a great blessing to Toronto Junction and to us. Formerly many of our
men simply could not pass the bars on
their way to and from work, and we had
much trouble. We built a stone wall be-
tween us and one of the hotels, but with
very little beneficial result.. That is a
thing past, and our men are better in every
A business man who had voted against
Local Option, one month after it came into operation, said, tp a neighbor : " It is a
good thing forme that it carried. I have
saved already two dollars in treats that I
would have had to put up for the boys.''
Surely these facts and testimonies ought to'"
count for something with business men in
other places. If Toronto Junction is dead
then 1 know many towns that would like'
to be dead in the same way.
It is said that liquor is brought in in large
quantities from outside, and that there is
as much consumed as before. Some liquor is brougt in, but the quantity is very
small. The desire that must be satisfied
in this way is the product of the license
system. Local Option does away with the
very instrument that creates this condition
and makes it possible for our" boys to
grow up without the open bar, to whose
temptation their fathers yeilded and fell."

to visit Canada in the fall of this year.
During his visit he will take the opportunity
of discussing the naval defence with leading men.

Bridge Opened at McLeod. .
A few days ago the functions in connection with the opening of the new bridge
across the Old Man River were carried out
with due ceremony. The day was observes a holiday and flags and bunting decorated the whole town. The Lieutenant-
Goveronor_ Bulyea cut the tape, which
officially opened the bridge for traffic. The
premier said .that indications were that the
C. N. R. would reach Calgary this fall and

A Gruesome Find.
While hunting for homesteads four men
came across a gruesome sight ninety miles
north of Bassano, and fifty miles from any
habitation, in the shape of the dead
body of a man. Before their return they
informed the Chief of- Police at Berry
Creek, who at once set out to the position
indicated. He reached Gleichen wtih the
body of the ''unfortunate man, at which
point an inquest was held. The body was
in a very bad condition, having been eaten
by coyotes and a prairie fires had burned
over him destroying the clothes. Therewas
practically no means left of identification.
The body is beleived to be that of a cow-
puncher named Harry Scholfield, who.has
not been heard of since Christmas.
Experiments Made With Fireproof
Interesting statements have' been made
before the Railway Commissioners at Ottawa to the effect that' experiments have
been in progress with reference to
the effciency of fireproof paint as a means
of protection for wooden trestles and
bridges. After a trestle had been painted
an engine was run over and the ashes
shaken out, nothing resulted. The engine
was then brought to a standstill in the
centre of the bridge and a heap of red
hot cinders shaken in a heap.on the painted ties. The fire went out in a few
minutes. In a similar test it was found
the paint was burned, but no fire resulte'd.
The tests will  go on   and   further  details
looked into by the Commissioners.    ^ -
Half Cent Stamps      -    \
While official announcement has not
yet been given out at Ottawa, it is learned
that no more half-cent stamps will be
issued. This will mean that collectors will
buy up the half-cent stamps in the hope
of making them absolete. The half-cent
variety is very little used, and when it is'
used it is chiefly by publishers and persons who issue religious pamphlets.
They are sometimes used as curiosities,
being sent to foreign countries, and stamp
collectors always try~to~gefa~8pecimerT" for
their collections. There is a large supply
on hand throughout the Dominion, so that
it will be a number of years before they
are unpurchasable.. A number also are
on hand at the various stamp dealers, and
so anyone who wants to make money out
of the issue will have a long time to  wait.
Liners Refuse to Carry Wheat
As a result of the low rates for carrying
grain many of the Atlantic liners have refused ' shipments tt the current - prices,
preferring to take water ballast. This remarkable state of affairs is due to the fact
that many of the leading passenger boats,
leaving New York are carrying grain
across the ocean free, the only charges
being those' of loading and unloading
The American lines have reduced their
rates between Buffalo and New York in
their endeavor to take away the trade from
Canadian Channels. The matter is expected to take a different course soon, as
the New York steamship Companies will
get tired of taking grain at the cost of
handling.- In the meantime New York is
getting all the free business and the only
person who gains by" the extraordinary
condition of affairs is the grain broker.
The farmers and the transportation companies are not cutting any melons. just
Large Orders Giben for Strawberries
The largest order for locally grown
strawberries hns been given to Revelstoke.
The order came from Calgary and is for a
1000 cases, and indicates that there is a
great market in the city for all kinds of
fresh fruit.

Outlato Caught Napping
Asleep under a tree, his hand clasping
a small revolver, Chns. Phillips the notorious bandit was found by the police. He
was wanted'for the murder of two officers
of the law in the state of Washington.
Constable Anderson who is responsible
for his arresL and who with the assistance
of six men finally brought the outlaw to
bay writes in his report that he traced the
man to the position by following his
horses hoofs for hours', finally sighting
him as he was taking a rest before proceeding further.
New Lake Steamboat Seroice
A new steamboat line from Salmon Arm
to Kamloops has been inaugurated. The
Andover, the first boat to be placed on
the run made her initial trip a few days
ago and it is expected that the, boat will
cover the distance between the two towns
in less than a day.
Hedleij Old Timer Dies
The sudden death occured a few days
ago of Thomas Currie, who expired on
the trail up Dry Creek, about four or five
miles from Beaverdell. He and his part-
partner were en route to work on their
claims on the south fork of Dry Creek.
A feeling of faintness came over the man
and he sat down on a rock remarking to
his partner that he was getting short of
breath. A few minutes afterwards, he'
toppled over dead. The remains were
taken to Greenwood for interment. His
home was at Boston and although living
in B.C. nearly all his life had never become
naturalised. He owned quite a lot of
mining property on the Kettle river and
on Wallace Mountain.
- The Wild Man of Ashcroft
A wild man has been seen at Pemberton
Meadows, and has terrorized the Indians.
The chief wrote a letter to the nearest
town, Ashcroft, stating that the mad man'
had burned his tents and frightened his
children. The report further states that
the man is dressed in buckskin and wears
a long beard. It is also reported that he
allows no one near his tent, being absolutely uncivilized, he cannot understand
the proceedings of his fellowmen.
Quebec Toion Wiped Out
The little town of St. Francois was almost completely wiped out by fire last

is not at present known, but much suffering is experienced by homeless families.

taken, three are' reported as adulterated
and one as doubtful.
Great Northern Trains Collide
A terrible collision resulting in the
death of three trainmen and the injuring
of five passengers occurred between
Burrard and Burnaby lake stations last
Thursday. One train was a mixed local
which had just left Vancouver, the other
was the Vancouver Seattle Express. The
officials of the Great Northern Depot refuse to give information until after the
inquiry, but from news gathered unofficially it appears that the engineer on the
local train either misread his orders or
else thought heliad time to jump to the
swith at Burnaby lake ahead of the express which he knew was running on time.
It took over twenty-four hours to separate
the two locomotives, which were locked
together. All the outgoing and incoming
trains transferred their passengers at the
scene of the accident. A report from the
General Hospital where the injured are
being cared for, stated that all wera progressing favourably.

Trees "and- Frails
in-the-Farm Garden
■v In   laying   out  a   new   garden,   space
•hould be provided always for trees, and
,* 'shrubs.   While the trees  are  very small
.they will occupy fSo 'more  ground  than
ordinary vegetables.   Other crops may be
planted to within"1 one  foot  of a  row  of
seedling trees/and no injury-will be  done
to either." "But in a  few -yea.s  the trees
will take the moisture from a larger space.
They will also'shade the ground, and   this
, _   alone will prevent most  vegetables  from
" attaining to perfection of growth.   At least
eight feet of extra space should be  aliow-
_ ed inside a windbreak of trees.„   At first
'this space may.be filled  with' vegetables,
but later on it should be merely kept free
from weeds.,.
'  For the windbreak 1 would strongly rec-
, ommend the  various  willows,  and > ash-
leaved maple,-. , They both grow v bushy
and thick near the ground, and if the ends
of the branches are clipped off, allowing
.  them' to extend from two to three feet be-
[ - .   yond the trunks of the trees,  then> an, al-
f ^ most solid wall of green ,will be produced,
f. A -y'.^ a small amount of Work.   The clipp-
* ing should be done in June, so as to allow
_ the ;f wounded   branches   to  heal  before
-. winter sets in. "If done much earlier  _han
- "June, some trees are liable -to, bleed  pro-
u^.     fusely.   Bleeding is to  be  avoided-when
.^ possible,' as it materially weakens the tree.
i Another/ reason  for^ recommending  the
^ma'ple and willow for planting around' the
-_ .farm garden is'the fact; that neither ol
i -> them send out suckers. Trees',that"-grow
'-„ many^ suckers should not be planted close
*  _ to, a "garden! as  they' will  come  up   like
.weeds and give trouble. * -
'""J, The commonj lilac, 'planted 'about  one
'  foot apart, will make as tight^ a  hedge  as
"any.. 'If it is seldom pruned,-it 'will  grow
"-'".very close  at the  bottom. s"This inside
;: \ is not really necessary. _ Either the'willowa
or the maples will be sufficient protection
_fof the garden.''-.   1A   ' '       •.     *-
- '   Poplars should be kept at  a respectful
_„ 'distance from  the  garden.  -  They  will
- send out their  suckers to  a  distance  of
' twenty or thirty feer from the main trunk.
*-- The suckers'*run quite close to the surface
of the ground, drawing sustenance   there-

- there'are dozens of hardy trees and shrubs
,' .ithat may be worked in "with   good" effect
/There is a  great'variety  to.be held-in
-'  foliage color*hand for winteceffects there
.7 is such-variation in the color of'-bark "and
B       young growth that it ia* quite" possible- to
't   make the .winter garden" pleasing  to  the

'*   Educed by the ^introduction I of 'tKe, white
•* -spruce, scotch pine, blue spruce'and some
other evergreen tree? that' have been
tested and foundvhardy'at the experimental farms. These take longer to grow than
the deciduous treea, but even when they
are quite small they add greatly to the appearance of the garden both winter and
summer. -
Each year a few rows of trees may be
planted next to the garden. If the trees
are planted three'feet apart each way, they
will soon branch and shade the ground so
that they will need no cultivation. While
they do need it, they can be cultivated
with the garden. It is a~good plan to start
tree seeds in the garden proper, transplanting them to the wood lots as soon as
they are large enough. Tree seeds ,are
best planted in the late fall, while cuttings
should be planted yery early in the spring.
The cuttings should be cut from the new
wood. . They should be eight inches Jong,
and nearly one-quarter of an inch thick.
Both ends should be cut evenly and the
slip set deeply in the ground, leaving only
one or two buds exposed. Most kinds of
poplars and willows grow readily from
cuttings. ^    -
t Strawberries should be. grown more
than they are. To be sure some of the
plants may winter-kill at times, but as a
rule a good supply can be easily grown in
every garden. The ground for strawberries
should be prepared much as for raspberries.
My experience has been that they stand
exposure in winter better when ■. planted
on clay-soil, than they do on sandy soil.
If the slope of the ground is towards the
north, the spring sunshine does not thaw*
the plants out so quickly," and they are less
likely to be injured by _ heavy -frosts
Strawberries need clean cultivation', and
should be well covered with''clean wheat
straw in winter. The(coveriiig should- be
left oh until'the ground. is .hawvd out
under-it. ■ Then > it should be'jemoved
gradually.       3( ,      >, -    ~      ,
Hardy apples are grown 'now success-'
fully., Much dissapointment may be met
with unless great care is taken to procure
the right stock. Much eastern and southern grown stock is sent out, by salesmen.
It may not always be the fault of! the
salesmen^ I know of one case where 'the'
company for .which a salesman .worked
promised to supply good Manitoba grown
apple trees.-* The company,, in turn bought
the stock from a well-known and suppose-
to-be reliable nursery." The apple trees
sent out .O'the fanners could not have

Express Companies
And Big Profits
Startling evidence as to the enormous
profits of express companies , was elicited
by the Dominion Railway Commission at
its sitting here. Mr. W. S. Buell, Council
for the Board. As the result of a long investigation submitted' the following table
of statistics with regard to the three principal companies in Canada.
Can. Dom.      Can. Nor.
OrisinalCap. $500,000   $100,000   $1,000,000
Stock Issued 275.000 300.000
Stock Paid Up 27.520       24.520 5,000
Paid Ori«inal Co.    660.000 295,000
Pros. Property Val. 212,719 592,239 38,396
Annual Net Profit 213,729 529 320 57,402
Percentage on Vel.        100 .92 .152
The Grand Trunk Pacifiic Express Company has been in existence only since
October last and its profits so far have
only been $725
The Canadian Express Company was
organized in 1865 and was bought by the
Grand Trunk in 1892 for $660,000 or 24
time* the amount of the original capital invested. The capital stock has been increased to $3,000,000 but there is nothing
to show that any more money haa been
put in than the original $27,520.
In connection with these figures it is interesting to note that the Railway Commission has also expressed the opinion in a
very recent judgement that it has imperfect control over these exceedingly prosperous companies which are entirely aub-
sidary to the railways and afford them a
sort of side avenue for the increasing of
their profits.
It is also worth noting that Mr. J. W.
Stout, President of the Dominion Express
Company, stated that the tolls on the
transportation of fish from British Columbia
to Eastern Canada and the Eastern States
last year exceeded $300,000.
These figures will set people thinking
anew about the plank in Mr. Borden's
platform which demands control of all
public utilities and the development of the
Railway Board into a Public Utility Commission.
Among a large shooting party on a northern grouse moor was a certain elderly
professor whose skill with his gun was
hardly epual to the profuodity of his intellect. Suddenly a heavy storm of rain
came on, and as there was no shelter on
the moor the shooters got thoroughly
drenched through. At least, all but one
suffered—the professor. He had mysteriously disappeared when the rain cameon,
and he did not rejoin the party, until the
sun was shining once more. To the amazement of the others the erudite one was
as dry as a bone. The others, drenched
and disgusted, inquired of him how it was
he had escaped a wetting. "Directly the
rain came on," replied the professor,
went off by myself,stripped off my clothes
and sat on them until the storm was over.
