A meeting of the  city  council
was  held on  Monday  last a  full
attendance   of    aldermen    being
present with Mayor DeHart in the
chair after the minutes of the previous  meeting had been read   and
adopted  the following correspondence was read by the city clerk:-
B. C. Farmer and Fruit  Grower—
referred to Board of Trade.
''Canadian Municipalities G. S. Wilson, resubscribing, filed
Kelowna Canning Co..   re  water
connections.    Referred to Fire and
Water commitee.
Collet Bros    re water connections.
Referred to Fire and Water committee.
A letter was also read complaining of neighbor's sanitary arrenge-
^ ments. •
Mr. Robertson  conductor of the
Kelowna band attended and asked
for   the   co-operation   of the city
council in organizing a good band.
Mr. Robertson remarked that he
had  not been long  in this part of
the country, but as far as he could
see he liked'.he conditions  and
' climate.   As long.as he could find
a suitable position^in the town he
would  continue to'stay here, and
would mak.   ithis work to drill the
various musicians, into-, a /present"
able shape!>'""He' was   sure   the
council wo'uld ^assist him in tbe
.natter, "The band at present consisted  of several beginners who,
.^after a litde,tuU.$n,.would,blossom
' forth' into good miiiciaifor' As- far
' as he' could ascertain s'everal good
musicians had left the band, owing
' to   the    organization   not   being
strong enough.   He hoped to see;
these return soon and the whole
matter supported by the council.
When asked about finances, Mr.
Robertson replied, the band was
badly in need of two cornets and
two clarionets.   These would cost
about $50 a piece, and a subscription or grant would  have to  be
gone into in order to supply these.
The  Mayor instructed  the  Band
committee to look into the matter,
and to report at next meeting, it
being  decided  that a good  band
ought to receive the support of the
city.   In the course  of discussion
it transpired that   there   were   at
present thirteen members.     The
band was greatly at a loss for want
of instruments, what instruments
remained were the property of the
city but many had   been   taken
away as the property of the player.
Mr. Robinson thought it best for
_ the"h and_to_have~"its~own^instrti?
ments, and to ask the  council  to
assist them in that respect. °   Two
clarionets   and two  cornets were
needed, the cost would be about
$200 for the four instruments.
Dr. Shepherd was present, and
explained that a number of lots
near his premises were covered
with dead leaves, trees, grass, and
other inflamable 'materials. .He
thought the council might take
some action to have this refuse
cleared, as it was endangering his
property as well as other property
adjacent The lilcelyhood of a
bush fire was considered, and Dr.
Shepherd thought the ^ council
ought to take some steps in the
matter. He had been,.asked by
several people to , approach' the
.council and would not have come
himself had not his neighbors also
felt affrighted at fire. The matter
was referred to the Board of Works
to take what steps were necessary
to relieve this nuisance.
The attention of the council was
directed to Other vacant places in
and around the city, all of which
were spread with inflamable refuse, and instructions were given to
the city clerk to write one person
in particular as to the cleaning of
his lot in Barnard Avenue,' the
same to have attention before the
first of June.
.- The Mayor explained that Mr.
Lloyd-Jones had asked for permission, to use the city's dump
cart; in order to haul the sawdust
away from the mill. Permission,
was granted.
1 By Aid. Cox an agreement was
presented between D. Mills (the
city scavenger) and the council, it
was decided that the whole city
should be included in the scavenging district. The agreement laid
before the council that night included the whole city, being from
the' north side of Gaston Avenue
due east to the east boundary of
the city limits, thence south to the
southern limits.
Mayor DeHart thought it advisable at the same time to levy a
scavenger rate to be paid with the
taxes, several people were in
arrears, and it was a difficult job
collecting the money.
Aid. Elliott thought it better to
levy a propoftunate rate on the
assessment of the value of the
Aid. Ball 'pointed out that the
matter had been discussed by other
councils, and had caused endless
debates. His idea was that a flat
rate should be levied and placed
and collected with the taxes. He
pointed out that it was hard for
people who did not need the
scavenger to have to pay—for the
cleaning away of other people's
A-committee consisting of Aids.
Cox, Elliott and Ball were appointed to look into the matter and to
report at next meeting. '. It .was
agreed however to approve the
proposed agreement- bety^^en^he
city and D'.' Mills, the Mayor _and
City Clerk being authorised to
sign the necessary papers. ^
A lengthy discussion next ensued
as to the state of. the road in Water
Street. It was thought a by-law
ought to be passed making contractors who start a building responsible for the upkeep of a sidewalk around such building. The
sidewalk by Raymer's old building
had been torn up and no provision
had been made for the pedestrian.
Some reports had reached the
council that people often stumbled
over odd bricks and sawhorses at
night. The street had been a kind
of brickyard since the beginning
of the building, and at one time it
was quite a job for a wagon to
and team to pass by. Such a condition would not improve the
business down any street and the
by-law was recommended to have
the attention of the council.
It also transpired that street
noises were very prevalent late at
night. Aid. Ball pointed out that
iast Saturday an army of~people
were whistling and shouting away
into the morning, tin cans were
being beaten and large crackers
were let off, causing a fearful noise,
worse than if a gun had been let
off. He thought this very inconvenient to any invalid or nervous
person and he knew of one person
in particular who had suffered
from, fright at the proceedings of
Saturday night.
Aid. Cox, endorsed Aid. Ball's
statement and thought the chief of
police ought to have taken some
steps. It was reported that he was
present, but took no notice of the
Mr. G. Rose informed the council that the chief was in the Courier
Office about eleven thirty and had
told him about the affair. He also
informed Mr. Rose that he had
advised them to quit, and had left
all quiet. - The row must have
started up after the chief had left,
and he did not think the blame
was entirely on his shoulders.
It was Ief£ m the hands of the
Mayor to get the chiefs report on
the subject.
The Mayor tnought it about time
something was done with reference
to the cement sidewalks along
main street, he suggested that the
city clerlt issue an advertisement
calling for tenders.
Aid. Rowcliffe thought a better
job might be made by paying by
the day. . Contract work was always hurried through and ; was
never done as well as .work „ paid
for by the day.     It was however
decided that as the last sidewalks
were well constructed and were
the result of a tender there was'no
need to deviate from that course.
The city clerk was therefore instructed to call for tenders, the
same to be'closed on May 26th.
Aid. Ball did not think, he water
main pipes were being put deep
enough into the ground, he point-
edxout that even though we usually
experience a very mild winter here,
yet it is very often the" case that
the least degree of frost will ijo
several feet into the ground owing
to there being no snow to stop its
progress, if our mains got frozen
we would be in a fix. The matter
was left in the hands of the watc"
committee. *■       '.
The following accounts were
referred to the finance committee
to be paid if found correct.

Aid. Elliott pointed out that a
certain amount of brush was alongside the banks of Mill Creek.
When»the water rises this will be
washed down and likely cause a
jam, it had better be removed.. ',**'
- Aid. Cox wished the council- to
think over the advisability of putting the names on the new cement
sidewalks. After a little discusaion
it was decided to have the name
hollowed out and- painted black.
Mayor DeHart thought-that now
the ParM By-law ha'd been passed
by the people, it would be as well
to get on with the work. A suggestion was made that one or two
prizes be given for the best plan
for setting out the park. It was
left in the hands of the "park committee to report.
' The Mayor wished the aldermen
to think over the advisability of
buying a team for the city's use.
Quite' a lot of money had been
used up for paying for teaming
and he thought that that bill would
be greatly relieved if a .team was
bought. The city clerk' was authorised to put an advertisemen'
in the paper and get prices of the
Mr. Dunn informed the counc'l

is was
and  an  account
was sent in, the account was disputed and never paid. Now the
house is rented to' someone else
who pays his light bill regularly,
and he would like to know what
steps he had better take to collect
the money due previous to the
time the house changed hands.
The aldermen instructed him to
take proceedings.
Several other accounts were outstanding, although not for the
same length of time, and it was
decided to inform these that the
light would be cut off if they were
not paid at once.
The reports of committees were
next called for.

experienced just lately.
A number of young people
spent a very enjoyable evening at
the home of Mr. D. W. Sutherland
last Thursday.'
An interesting meeting of the
shareholders _n the newly incorporated Aquatic Association, was
held in Raymer's Hall on Tuesday
last. Mr. G. Rose was nominated
to the chair. Twentj-two shareholders were present.
Mr. Rose in commenting on the
present meeting said the sale of
shares had not received the support that was anticipated, and it
was a question to decide as to
whether the Association could
start building under their present
plans or if they would have to cut
down the dimensions of the building owing to lack of shareholders.
He strongly urged that efforts
should be made ft> visit people
outside the town with a view t'o
getting them to subscribe, but it
was impossible under the present
conditions to do this, as the various
business men in town were
unable to get around and see prospective subscribers, owing to press
of business. He pointed out that
Mr." A. L. Meugens had accepted
the position of secretary pro tern,
but owing to his business, he was
unable to carry on the position.
He would ask Mr. Meugens to
read out the names of the various
Mr. Meugens reported that at
present 87 shares had been subscribed for. This covered in all
49 names, and it was possible to
get many more. He did not see
any danger in not getting the full
subscription right away, and
thought the present shareholders
ought to advise some plan -whereby the various likely subscribers
might be approached. The subscription at present entailed an
amount of $2,175. Eight or nine
more had been promised but these
had not made their first payment
and were not included in the list.
Mr. Rose wished the shareholders present would advise on the
best plan to be taken, as it was
impossible to proceed with the
building under the present conditions. .At least $5,000 ought to
be guaranteed before the building
was started.
Mr. Crowley thought that someone might be instructed to look
after the balance of the shares,
and a certain percentage allowed
him for every share sold. .It was
impossible for business men to
look after the selling of shares.
He would suggest that the person
so employed would receive a good
commission of about 5 per cent,
put in the agreement with him to
sell the shares.
Mayor DeHart was of the opinion that a sliding scale would be
better employed, and suggested
that 5 per cent, be paid for the
first thousand sold, 7i per cent, for
the second and 10 per cent, for the
third. It was finally agreed to employ a man to look after 'the sale
of shares for a limited time, the
rate of commission to be fixed by
the new directors.   ,
.Mr. Crowley wished the names
of the subscribers to be read out
so that they could see if anyone
was present who was not a shareholder.
Mr. C. Clarke suggested that it
would be better to exclude the
press from such meetings as he
did not think they ought to report
meetings of that description.
The 'Chairman, Mr. G. Rose, in
support of the Press replied that
he thought it would be an act of
discourtesy to try to exclude the
Press from any meeting. Much of
the good welfare of companies was
due to the influence of the press,
and he would not endorse any
statement that the press ought not
to be admitted to their meetings.
It now rested with the shareholders to pick out their directors
and Mr. Rose asked that a number
be chosen, which was easily de-
visible by three, as one third of the
members elected would hold office
for two consecutive years, the re-
'  '     Continued   on  page 8        '7     .
A meeting of the sports committee was held on Saturday to
make arrangements for the carrying out of the sports on May 24th.
The Mayor and Aid. Bailey were
present to give assistance in the
organization, the business "being
much and varied.
The question of finances was
gone into closely, the Secretary^
explaining that the money for the
prizes for the Marathon Race had
been already subscribed, and very
little touting for subscriptions had
been done.
•Mayor DeHart wished to know
how much would be required for
the other events, and a general
opinion was that $150 would be
sufficient. The Mayor advocated
making out a prize list and alloting
the proposed prizes to the various
races. He did not think there
would be any difficulty in raising
the money. .
The committee wished to ask
the Mayor v if they could take.a
collection in the park to defray
the cost of running the races and
for advertisements, etc. -Mayor
DeHart was of the opinion that
such a thing could be done. ' Permission was also asked to put the
old grand stand in repair and to
charge for admission. The grand
stand of course to be at the winning post. '    "
Sanction was given to have this
carried through, provided a good
carpenter was employed, and. the
£tard was set on a-good. solid,
footing. The name of Mr. Potter
who has been doing quite a.lot of
work around town and in the
country of a satisfactory nature
was afterwards submitted, and it
was decided,to see him and make
The Mayor was asked to act as
judge during the day "and Aid.
Bailey to be clerk of the course.
Both these agreed. to act in the
capacity, Aid. Bailey being only
able to act in the morning. " It was
also agreed to approach Mr. Mc-
Guire and Mr. F. A. Taylor to act
as starters, and Doctor Boyce to
act as judge to assist the Mayor.
L. C. Ayiss was appointed clerk of
the course during Mr,
A deputation had been received
during the week, asking leave to
have a football match during the
latter part of the afternoon. It was
decided to allow this and to shift
the sports on to an earlier start -so
as to finish about 4:30 p.m.
—Thecompetitors~of the"Marath"on
did not like the. idea of having it
round the park, and much discussion was forthcoming in that respect. It was decided to run it in
the park irrespective of the competitors, wish to have it run out in
the country. The townspeople it
was pointed out will be responsible
for most of the money subscribed,
and it is* their wish to have it run
in the park. The committee had
,no power to alter. their opinion,
and the event will be round the
track in the park. ^'
Permission was asked to start
preparing the giound on the Saturday before Victoria Day. This
was granted.
The minor sports were then
gone into, times altered ' and prize
money proposed.
The following programme was
agreed upon." \ >r  . _

Are the citizens of Kelowna
losing interest in the welfare of
their town, or can it be that the
general rush of business caused
" the public meeting advertised
to be held in Raymer's Hall
last Saturday to be practically
unattended. The meeting was
called to explain By-laws No.
59 and 61, both of which deal
with matters of vital importance
to the city and to every citizen.
Owing to the short attendance
it was deemed expedient to
cancel the meeting. The published by-laws have given a
general idea as to the cause
that prompts the City Council
taking a vote of the citizens,
but there may as yet be some
unexplained doubts in the
minds of the public which require removing. The meeting
was called with the idea of
finding out if such a doubt
These poorly attended meetings are discouraging to the
Mayor and' Aldermen, or indeed anyone else engaged in
public work, for other" societies
here have the same cause of
complaint. There is no doubt
that the average, individual
thought to himself that the bylaws would be passed anyway
whether he went to the meeting or not, but it is just as well
if the public at large get their
heads together occasionally at
a public meeting and assist the
council when an. important
project is before them.
Our Council sits once, twice
and .occasionally even three
times during the week in the
interests of the city and it is
only fair that the public should
be ready to respond when
called upon to help. If - the
city is to go ahead, as we suppose is the wish of everyone in
it, that advance will be made
more rapid and decided by
enthusiastic co-operation, and
not by sinking into that state

ISow that the dryer weather
is coming and the dust in  the
roads threatens to become a
nuisance it is pleasing to note
..that steps are, being taken to
sprinkle thgm with water. The
method   adopted   at   present
however   bids  fair   to   prove
rather   rather   expensive.     It
, - seems at first   sight   a   very
handy and "slick" arrangement
to bring out the fire hose and
1 use the water from the hydrants
but how long will the fabric of
the hose stand the rough wear
' of being • dragged ty<- a horse
along the streets under a high
*' pressure of water.    The hose
is. certainly, not made to stand
" such usage, and it must' in a
very short time begin to develop holes which wfll render
it unfit for use in caseof fire.
Then—r—new   hose!      This
rough method will soon cost
the price of a road sprinkler,
and how that the city are con-
'sidering. the purchase of a team,

of seven men, five of whom were drowned.
The mate who jumped overboard at the
first impact, was saved by a life line which
was thrown by the colliding steamer. The
captain was picked up afterwards by a
boat from a passing tug. Several of the
drowned men leave widows and children.

Forest fires are   devastating  the- Aider-
shot district of Hampshire!    The  district
which  was planted   out  by  William   the
Conqueror in 1079.     The  Norman   King,
made Winchester his capital and devastated a progressive   countryside   to   provide
for the sport he so loved.    He planted the
forest with oaks and  beeches,   and   many
of the trees now being burned   are  dated
back to his^ime.   The forest at  one time
furnished a lot of the oak used in building
warships before the iron age  time.     The
forest is full of game, principally deer.     It
is estimated that about two thousand acres
are already burned, and   the  troops  have
been called out to  fight  the  flames.     A
great fire also raged in the dock district at
Swansea.   Several buildings were burned,
including the custom house. -
Misplaced Anxietg.
Much anxiety   prevailed   at  Lloyds,   in
consequence of the report that the steamer
Castlegarth of Newcastle was greatly overdue at Bombay.   A reinsurance rate of 25 "
guineas per cent, had   been  taken   freely,
thousands of pounds of reinsurance  being
put through at that rate.     The  report   is
now   through   that  the  vessel   has  been
snugly   stowed  away  in  port  since' the
middle of April, and owing to an oversight
the vessel was not telegraphed aa arrived.
The whole business has  been  without
example, it being the  first  case  where  a'
vessel has  not   been   reported   within  48
hours of its arrival.   Those who  had  the
reinsurance  are jubilant  over  the  affair
while the issuers  are  busy  tearing  their
hair, and passing remarks against the  telegraph system at that point.     It is certain
that  information_will   be   required   and
some interesting cases will be  the  result.
The Castleg-th is a vessel  of 2615  tons,
valued including cargo at £50,000.

years previously has just come to light  at
Epping.   His name is Walter Tugby,  and
it was on the day the   whole   of  England
were celebrating the relief  of. Ladyemith
that Tugby was found driving a horse at a
great speed.   He was arrested, and owing
to the occasion the Judge only  imposed a
fine of 28 shillings.   Tugby iorgot  to  pay
and the court did not press the  matter, in
fact very nearly  forgot  to  do so.     Last
month two policemen met  Tugby  in  the
street, and showing payment  papers,  reT
quested him to  fix  the  matter  up.     He
however refused, and was given the option
of paying or doing fourteen'days.   Tugby
has just been released and is very indig-
nant at the action taken by the police.
Lady Attached in Broad Daylight.
Mrs. Beeby a wealthy widow living at
Putney, was attacked in broad daylight by
two tramps. Mrs. Beeby was out walking
in the afternoon when she was sloped by
her assailants. She offered some resistance
but was roughly treated by the men.
They took from her everything of value
she had about her, and then decamped,
no one unfortunately being-within hearing
of Mrs. Beeby*s calls for assistance. She
was, however, able to make her way home
and his since been suffering from shock
and severe handling. No trace of the perpetrators of the outrage have yet been discovered.

Armstrong is advertising two interesting by-laws. One the Bicycle
By-law. the other the Curfew Bylaw. The former enacts that no
person shall exceed eight miles an
hour riding in the streets, also that
bells and lights be provided on all
machines. It also makes provision
for persons found throwing glass
or the like about the streets in order to puncture the tires of machines. The bicycle is not allowed
to be ridden on any sidewalk under a penalty not exceeding
twenty-five dollars. The Curfew
by-law enacts that no children
under fifteen years of age shall be
allowed on the streets, between
the hours of nine o'clock in the
evening and six o'clock in the
morning, unless the child is in the
charge of a parent or« guardian.
The reports of the Mara fire,
although bad, have hardly been
severe   enough. The   damage
done greatly exceeding the reports. The Armstrong branch of
the W.C.T.U. have taken matters
into their hands and are receiving
bedding, clothing and cooking
utensils for distribution among the
people who have lost nearly all
they had by this'disastrous fire. It
is to be hoped that what help

this society as soon, as possible.

A curious accident occurred at
Vernon on the old bridge on the
Coldstream Road south of the
town. The Misses Butters, daughters of Mr. Thos. Buttersof Lumley,
and the rig they they were driving
were precipitated over the bridge
into the ravine, a drop of about
twenty feet. By a miracle neither
of the young ladies were killed,
although they did not escape without injury. One of the horses was
found to be in such pain that the
veterinary surgeon deemed it necessary to shoot it at once. The
bridge is severely critizised by the
inhabitants of Vernon and it is
generally thought the Government
ought- to take- steps to stop the
occurrence of a similar accident.

Too Many Saloons"
From the Roman Catholic Record.
In addressing the grand juryat the opening of the court the Hon. Mr. Justice
Teetzel referred to the Larocque murder
trial, and said it was another instance of
the baneful effect of over indulgence in
drink. It was a lamentable fact he said
that out of ten cases of homicide he had
tried seven men on trial were in that position through drink, and in two or three
other cases the victims had been intoxicated and had brought the attack on them-,
selves. He was pleased at the sentiment
expressed throughout thejprovince ih fav-
or of the reduction of the number of lie-,
enses. Thatras he declared that almost
every city has more licenced place* than
arc necessary, is due to our _mind to the
indifference and neglect of the citizen.
The liquor men are organized, with lawyers
to warn them against every obstacle; we
have no unity, no compactness, and are
handicapped by adherents whose heart*
are better than their heads. While we
take vocal exercise the liquor men who
control vast interests and pull the strings of
a hundred bar-rooms are watching, and
contravening when possible, every move
of the law maker. And entrenched behind the law money-bagt, and donations
to this and that, always a matter of business, they ask the few indignant citizens:
" Well what are you  going  to  do  about
it.     _   L

eloquence looks pale by the sheen of the
dollar. The first and most necessary step
toward reform-r-we quote Archbishop Ireland—"is to reduce beer and whiskey
men and their friends to obscurity., to
wrest completely from their hands the
helm of government in village, city -and
state." This will be done when Catholic
and non-Catholic stand in this matter on a
common platform. And the first plank in
that platform should be; Vote for the
men who promise to hold high above all
party cries the welfare of Canada and it*
and see what they have for the

Defeat of an Army.
During the encampment of several regiments of soldiers in a certain district the
wood and turf used for cooking purposes
were .carted by the neighboring farmer*.
One day a donkey cart full of turf was
brought in, the driver being a country lad.
As a regimental band was playing, he
stood in front of the donkey and held the
animal tightly by the head. Some of the
"smart ones" gathered round, highly
pleased, and the wit of the party asked why
he "held his brother so tightly". Tho reply
was crushing; "I'm afraid he might enlist."
Two of a Kind.
A distinguished specialist was called
upon a week or two ago by an eminent
government official for treatment for a
nervous ailment'.
"The first thing you must do," said the
physician, after an examination, "is to give
up both smoking and drinking.■'<--..   -
Whereupon the eminent official became
peevish. "Look here doctor," he burst
out. "now your talking just like my wifel" la

x  C. P. R Agent Accused o5 Theft.
At the speedy trial courts at Regina,
Judge New-lands handed a six months term
to Peebles the C. P. R. agent at Howard
Sask. The accusation was one of
stealing personal belongings from trunks,
when they were in the custody of the
company. The accused pleaded guilty to
the charge, and without further comment
was given the above mentioned term of
imprisonment. It was publicly know n
that a purse containing $400, had been
from his charge, but this matter was not
brought-into the accusation, sufficient
proof of the theft not being ready. Mrs.
Peebles who was charged with being an
accessory to the crime, is out on bail, and
will likely fight her case.

which there was nearly a riot about- a
monthtago, two city policemen grabbing
them by virtue of their uniform, were sold
by auction at Calgary last week. The
auctioneer was T.' W. Martin, of Medicine
Hat, and nearly one hundred bidders were
present. Arthur Wannoq of Nanton, got
one quarter, at $12.50 an acre, Robert Robertson, of Nanton, getting the other in the
neighborhood of the',same, pried. ..Mrs.
Mary-Jane Ross, obtained the quarter at
Carbon for $6.50 per acre., Mrs. Ross was
one of those' who obtained . homestead
rights originally by the intervention of the
city policemen, both of whom lost the
quarter sections already allotted to them.
C.P.R. Steamer Collides in Fog
Thfr steamer Bruce brougnt the first
consignment'of passengers numbering 241
from the disabled CP.R. steamer Lake
Champlain. The Bruce left directly she
had landed her passengers at North Sidney,
to get another consignment. The Champ-
lain had 750 on board. The collision took
place during a fog. She- was going slowly
ahead when an iceberg was sighted directly, in fro,nt of the bows. Everything
possible was done to avert a collision but
the ship was* too close to avoid it and struck
a large projecting part of the berg which
showed out of the water about twenty-five
feet. When the collision occurred a concert was in progress in the 1st class cabin,
and many did not know what had occurred. The foreign immigrants were the
first to get alarmed. 'The wireless -operator immediately got.in communication
with the" Allan Line Laurentian and kept
in touch'until St. Johns was "reached. The
passengers behaved well and transferred
from the boat in an orderly manner. - Of
the, passengers on board 120 were bound
for the States, the rest for different parts
of Canada.   "'
Neio C.P.R. Station.
The 'Canadian Pacific Railway have
opened a new station at Calgary Junction
where all the local trains stop. Tickets
can' be purchased and passengers can
have their baggage checked through from
that point. The new station will be a great
boon to the residents on the east side of
Steamer Aground.

Accident on C. P. R.
A serious accident occurred last'Thursday on the C. P. R, between Mattawa and
Kippewa. It is pleating to state that no
casualties occurred. The railway winds
its way along narrow ledges, through the
Laurentians, far above the Ottawa River,
and through many quick cuttings. As the
passenger train from the north, heavily
laden, was passing a dangerous point
where the road bed clings to the mountain
side, a' foiir ton rock came hurling down,
wrecking the locomotive, and severely
shaking the passengers. Dynamite had to
be used to clear the wreckage from the
line. ■'.■7.,.."..'
Courtship bt| Wireless.
The marriage of J. A. Balch, manager
of the Wireless Telegraph Company > of
Honolulu and Helen Skelly, of Butte, Montana, were solemnized in SanFrancisco last
week. The courtship - and engagement
were carried, on by wireless telegraphy,
the couple being  married directly Miss
Skelly left the boat.

Wireless Electric Light 7
A startling innovation has just been
established when the Ontario Government
sent an electric current to light up the
Ontario Electrical Exhibition. The wire,
less wps sent over a distance of five miles,
and four thousand incandescent lamps were
kept burning for four hours. The system
by which the experiment was made - was
the invention of Dr. Frederick Millener,
wireless expert of the Pacific Union
Fair Promoters at Victoria.
The" Centennial fair party from Winnipeg, met the government at Victoria to
ask for their co-operation in promoting a
World's Fair. The question of a grant
was not brought up At a public meeting
held in the City Hall, a resolution was
passed endorsing the scheme, and Mayor
Hall was authorised to advise the city's
representatives at Ottawa to support a
grant by the Dominion, for the promotion
of a fair. The members of the delegation
were entertained at the Canadian Club and
it is expected that they will return shortly
to Winnipeg-
Crushed to Death by a
Freight  Trein.
A sad death occurred this week at North
Bay. Mrs. Patterson who was visiting a
friend, wished to get home as soon as possible, her way lay across the line? To avoid a
long detour, the woman crawled underneath some freight cars which were
blocking her way. As she 'was doing this,
the train moved on, and the woman's legs
were ground off, and other injuries sustained causing'her death within a few
hours. She leaves four children and a
husband, who ha been out of work for
some time. The gravity of the accident
is accelerated by the fact that an .18 year
old daughter died only a week previous.
Actors a Bad Lot
Summoned to serve on a jury at London
an actor made a successful plea that he
was a "rogue and a vagabond," therefore
being illegible. In support of his contention the actor showed an old act of parliament that had never been repealed. The
judge was forced to admit that the actor
was not qualified to "sit on a jury.
• The Remittance Man Smitten
Magistrate McMiken of Winnipeg was
unusually strict with the case of a remit
tance man named William Allott who it
was stated came from a good - family, but
preferred loafing and squandering his remittance to working. The Magistrate remarked that numbers of immigrants of an
undesirable nature are shipped from England every year, who when they have
been in the country a year rail at the
foreigners and say they cannot get ..a job.
He directed his remarks to the back of the
court where remittance men were throng,
ing the benches. He thought that' they
were a -isgrace. There was work for all,
and as long as the foreigner who is willing
to work comes,into the country, 'fie will
steal a march on any Remittance man who
looks for work at the same time grumbling
over the prevailing conditions.
C.P.R. Employee Exonerated
Much surprise was sprung on the Supreme Court at Saskatoon last week, when
the' jury, after having been' absent for
about half an hour, returned a verdict of
not guilty on Elmar Rau. The charge was
one of stealing coal, and the^ CP.R. had
gone to great expense in bringing witnesses from Ontario, to prove that Rau
not only stole five cars of coal from a sid.
ing, but was also responsible for several
barrels of whiskey. Several persons had
been arrested on the charge of receiving
stolen goods, but as it is now found that
Rau is not responsible for these misdoings,
it is expected that all charges will be dismissed and the prosecution withdrawn.

A clever capture of a burglar was made
by Constable Borthwick /last week at
Brantford, Ont. -Four.burglaries were re-
ported during the night .and the whole
force was on the look'out. In the morning Borthwick saw a man entering the renr
window of a house on Lawrence Street.
Quickly making for the scene of action, a
severe struggle ensued, the constable being
dragged.,through the window after, the
burglar. A daah was then made for the
front door, but finding that it was locked,
the burglar dodged ond jumped through
a large, window' near by. Constable
Borthwick followed and finally caught his
man half way down the.'street. He gave
the name of Joseph Smith;, but is a French-
Canadian. At the courts, he pleaded
guilty to eight burglaries and asked for a
good stiff sentence. The police are looking
up his record.

A correspondent of "The Fruit-Grower"
contribute* the following interesting artiele
which we take the liberty of reprinting for
the benefit of our readers;—
My orchards are all  in  graft.     I  have
... quit cultivating.    I usually cut the grass
and leave it on  the  ground  as a mulch,
placing it   around   the   trees,   especially
where they are too large.   I   apply  what
,   manure I can where it is most needed, but
have never seen the difference in the results.   I have thinned my  apples  for  the
last four years, and 1 am well pleased with
L   the results.   We thin most of the varieties,
but some need it worse than others.     We
commence  on  the  early  varieties  about
June the first, and quit on the late one in
August.   When the fruit is email it is difficult to get  enough   removed.     When  it
gets larger it is easier to  determine  when
it is  properly  thinned.     On  late  apples
most of the tinning should be done in June
.   and July, and some  more of  the  surplus
can be taken off in August,  when it can
readily be seen if the taees are yet too full.
We try to thin all branches of fruit  so'  as
to leave just ane specimen in a place, unless
the branches are far apart, when it may be
• best sometimes to leave two in a bunch,
but the centre one should be taken out, so
.  that the other   two  will  not touch  each
other, if it is possible to get them that way."
Worms will often spoil both'   of   them   if
they hang together  all  summer.     Hand
. picking is the only way to thin,  and .both
hands must be used to keep from break-
, ing the twigs off.   All   scabby, ' stung  or
wormy specimens should be removed first
.and then thin out the small  ones.     What
.seems to be afair setting  of apples,  after
being thinned in June' will often show up
twice as many in September as there should
be for best results.' I have had many fruitgrowers tell me that 1  waa having - twice
as many picked' off as there should  have
been when the fruit  became  ripe.     The
trees looked twice as full as they .should
have been.  ' The  tender-hearted   grower
better give directions to disinterested labourers about the thinning and go ' off and
• leave him to do the  work.    The  ground
will look as if the trees had been stripped
but the results will be most profitable. The
cost of thinning is very small.   It need not
usually be over 5c. per barrel.   Yield will
be about as much as when no thinning  is
-done and the-size and  quality'will  more
than pay for the cost.   It costs  money, to
pick apples when they are ripe., If a fourth
:or half of them-.are-picked in the summer, when help, is not'so  scarce,-there
would not be 'quite so much of a demand
. far pickers,-and'the work,would not .need
' to be rushed so much to get' the - picking
done in time. - Large.'fine'apples can, be
picked faster by the barrel, or as fast by
the number, as smaller ones, and when
about all the culls have been thinned out
the sorting and packing can be done for a
small part of the cost of the same when all
kinds of fruit must be handled _od disposed of from unthinned trees. Trees that
have been thinned every year, that in time
of drouth, and have fairly fertile soil to
supply the needs of, the tree, have fair
crops of apples every year. When they
used to bear too full and suffer from
drouth they bore once in .two years. I expect to continue to thin whether the trees
are too loaded or not, if there are many
imperfect apples on the trees. It is better
to get rid of them than to allow them to
mature. There is no money in handling
them, and all the hard cash made in fruit
growing is with good fruit, with few exceptions. C. A. UMOSELLE,
Hammonton, N. J.
It was their first meeting, and the con.
'venation turned to books. He wanted to
appear smart, and informed her that he
knew Scotts works from beginning to end.
"What do you think of Scotts Ivanhoe?"
she queried. "Oh," he replied, "1 don't
like that as well as some." "Or Scotts Pcv-
eril." she asked. "That is not too bad, but
some of the characters are hardly natural."
"And Scotts Waveriey?" "That is quite a
fine work, but again not the best." At
last with a merry little twinkle in her eye
she asked "what do yoo think of Scotts
Emulsion." .' "Oh,! that was the finest work
I have yet read. It is brim full of humor,
touched with a certain amount of sentiment
and " but the sight of an advertisement
in the  paper he was   nervously  fingering
cut the praise rather short.
Little Daughter(entering breakfast-room
on the .morning_ of April 1st): ''Mother,
there's a'man in the kitchen kissing nurse.'
The mother rushed to the door, and
would-have run along the passage to the
assistance of herxlaughter's guardian but
for the sudden outburst of mirth from her
little girl: "Ha, ha,ha, mother's April fool.
Ha, hn, ha.   It's only father."'
