Howse  secured that promise from-Post  Office Inspector Greenfield on  Thursday evening. N  He met the inspector on the  train between Merritt and Nicola  last evening, and pointed out the  ridiculousness of forcing people  to send to Kamloops for the clearance of parcels which come by  post - from foreign countries,  especially when there are so many  .dutiable parcels received here.  It is a great inconvenience to  have to send out for clearances'  when the work might be done in  Merritt every whit as expeditiously and as economically to the  post office department as it can  be done in Kamloops,;  The Inspector made an absolute  iprbmise to Mr. Howse" that the  'head of the department for British Columbia would see that the  Merritt Post Office was made a  Customs clearing point in the  immediate future.  That the people bf Merritt will  be very pleased with this arrangement, goes without saying.  handling any kind of, surveying  work he may be asked to undertake.  CONSERVATIVE MEETING  Tonight, at".eight, in Menzies'  hall, the Merritt, Middlesboro  and District Conservative Association will hold a meeting.

Th  e   Old  Cariboo Trail  MILLINERY OPENING-   ~  Last Wednesday and Thursday  the spring millinery opening of  G. B. Armstrong was held in the  hall above the store. Miss Marriott, who has charge of that  department, was kept busy showing the latest models to the many  ladies who came to inspect the  stock. For the occasion the main  window of the store was tastefully decorated with beautiful  hats. -���    '  Tea was served to the ladies"  by Misses Vair and:Olson, and  music was furnished by a string  band.   During the afternoon Mr.  Williams, the representative of  "Mason <��TRisch71;he piano-manu-  facturers, rendered several selections on the piano, and also .played  the latest musical comedy music  on the orchestrelle.  Everything possible. was done  to assure a pleasant afternoon  for all the ladies who came to  witness the display, and the many  exclamations of pleasure testified  that they were delighted; with  what they had seen.

Certain it is that none of the  local promoters of incorporation  have yet received any information. It seems strange.that the  government should have made  the announcement in the coast  press and have failed to cause  the proclamation in the district  most affected.  It is to be hoped that the report  is correct. The delay in granting  incorpbrtion has been irksome,  and if this news is true we may  look for a boom.

A writer in the Sunday Chronicle gives the following interesting "pen-picture of the present  condition of the French Republic :  Judged by some of the papers,  France might be set down as a  land of wild-eyed Apaches, longhaired   degenerates,    rebellious  Labour leaders,   and   well-built  ladies of frilled morals and dangerously tight skirts. From more  sober quarters an impression is  at times conveyed of an Atheist  nation given increasingly to the  pleasures  of the glass   that   is  greeny-yallery,  to adultery, and  a declining  birth-rate.     Whilst  everyone   seems  to agree   that  Germany is forging ahead, many  people are undoubtedly obsessed  with the idea that France is on  the downgrade.    This extraordinary popular delusion is combat-  ted  by   M.   Jean   Charlemagne  Bracq,  a born  Frenchman,  but  long jassociated with the United  States, where he is professor of  Romance Languages in theVassar  College, and equally familiar with  the social   phenomena of   both  lands.  M. Bracq, who is a Protestant,  makes out a very strong case for.  a healthy and progressive France  in a book cailed " France under  the Republic," which is being  published this week-end by Mr.  Werner Laurie. He does not  deny that alcoholism has developed seriously across the Channel  during the past qarter of a century, or that the statistics of insanity (which have risen latterly  in all civilised countries) are disturbing, but he claims that, considered either from the economic,  military, moral, or intellectual  point of view, the state of France  was never more generally sound  than it is today, and shows enormous'expansion since the fall of  the Second Empire.  the new arm\   ;  r" Take :the  case of ' the army,  which the late Sir Charles Dilke  regarded as the finest in Europe.  In 1870'one of the French gen  erals mistook the Harth Forest  for a river, and inquired if it was  broad, and had a bridge over it;  and another lost his army altogether, and telegraphed to the  Ministry for War to know where  it was. Today the French military maps are perfect, and the  scientific training of the officers  is as near to absolute excellence  as is humanly possible.  Under the Empire the rank and  file of the army was largely riffraff ; today the army represents  the nation���'' the son of a peasant  and the son of a duke now stand  side by side in the ranks," arid  the middle-class, the class with  most of the brains, is more and  more familiar in the lists of officers. The term of service has  been reduced from seven to two  years, but the peace footing has  risen from 400,000 to 571,000 men,  and the war contingent from  540,000 to 4,350,000 men.  The navy,' 'so powerless during  the Franco-Prussian War," will  remain second. only to that of  Great Britain,until the new German programme is completed;  and the type of French sailor has  improved greatly.  The colonies and. protectorates  of France have increased by eight  times in, forty years, and the  French flag^ can now be traced  from the shbres of North Africa  to the Congo. Colonial transport  has been extended in'a remarkable degree, and four millions  of francs of French capital has  sought colonial investments,  whilst many of the colonial budgets now show a surplus. So  successful are the French colonies  becoming-that Mr., James.F. J.  Archibald, the \yar correspondent, has declared, after inspecting those; in North Africa, that  '' the French people and the  French government are today the  most practical colonisers in the  civilised world." . In the African  colonies in 1909, 238,000 of kilograms of cotton were raised.  STATE RAILWAYS  In France itself the railways  have been trebled in forty years,  and are owned almost entirely by  the Freeh people, as is the National debt to the sum of 26,000,-  000,000 francs. National roads  and waterways have been materially increased, the tonnage on  the waterways increasing in sixteen years by forty-two per cent.  The yield of wheat in France is  still showing an upward trend,  and expanded by fifteen million  hectolitres between 1873 and 1905,  whilst the output of sugar beet  is three times greater. The vineyards destroyed by the phlloxera  have been replanted ; the number  of small holders of land continues  to grow, and co-operation and  ssientific education, mutual loan  banks, the use of water power to  generate electricity, and other  modern advantages are improving the condition of the farming  class.  The Forests of the Republic  have widened nearly a million  and a quarter acres inside the  half-century. Her people have  three times as much capital invested abroad as in the seventies.  They hold stocks and shares  worth at least 135,000.000,000  francs. Eight and a half million  persons in France possess real  estate. Capital and labour-skill  are more widely . diffused in  France, perhaps, than anywhere  else: it is peculiarly the home of  the small artistcrafts. Consequently, the salaried workmen  are only five per cent, more,  numerous than the employers;  who work on their own account.  THE FIRST AERONAUTS  French engineering stands  higher than ever, and France has  been the pioneer in motoring,  and is now the pioneer' in aeronautics. Industrial education,  associated' in each case locally  with the dominant manufacture  of the district, is making great  strides, and France is literally  dotted with laboratories', in many  of which working men.,are free  to work out any ideas; .they "may-  have.     Twenty-five -thousand  schoolhouses have been built or  rebuilt by tha Republic, and the  outlay on education has risen  from 24,000,000 francs in 1870 to  281,000,000 in 1910. Both in the  more serious literature and the  novel and the drama���neither of  which really represents French  life as it is���France is holding  her own in Europe ; in certain  departments of science, as in  sculpture, she leads ; in painting  her influence is as deep today as  that of any of the nations.  In social reform the developments are astonishing and sometimes comic. For example, to  encourage thrift, children are  presented with bank-books as  prizes; a certain charitable  society provides 1,500 families  with small free gardens in which  to grow their vegetables, and  another has been started to give  eligible young ladies "dots"  when they.are married. Taxation  has risen, but such is the home  productive capacity of France  that, according to M. Bracq,  "on all sides are evidences that  Frenchmen at large are better  fed and for less money than  formerly," that Frenchmen are  growing bigger and stronger  physically.  Nax Nordau denies that France  is decaying ; she is " rapidly progressing, "��� he says, "passing  through one of the most brilliant  periods.of her history." This  also is the view, among others, of  Mr. Edmund Gosse: "In my  opinion," he declares,." there is  no country so -full of. intellectual  buoyancy and hopefulness, nd  country which offers the observer  so many sources of real life and  which so fascinates the thinker  as France."

This was received  enthusiastically by nearly all  sections of the press andvpublic in  England, and pjactically equally  so by the American newspapers.  When Congress reassembles for  its next session, which will be in  December, it is expected that  President Taft will send in a  treaty covering the proposals.  When the treaty is un fait accompli."hands across the1 sea"  will have a new significance.  J. A. M. Aikin, a solicitor for  the C. P. R. in Winnipeg, announced in Vancouver recently  that he was a strong advocate of  military training. He does not  approve of a Canadian navy, but  he is thoroughly in accord with  the Boy Scout movement.  Australia is not sending an  official contingent to the Coronation, but Colonel Ramaciotti, of  the Ii*ish Rifles in Sydney, takes  a contingent at his own expense.  When the last mail left over two  thousand men had applied to be  allowed to join the contingent.  There has been such a flood of  immigrants to Australia, Dr.  Mead; the man in charge of the  Victoria government's irrigation  work', informs the press, .that the  two , million acres of irrigated  lands thrown open to settlement  will all be taken up in six months.  M. J. Henry, a Vancouver nurseryman, returned from Mexico,  informed a reporter that he had  witnessed the passage of automobiles loaded with arms across  the international boundary. The  arms were for insurgent troops.  He said that quite a number who  were wintering in Lower California made trips across the border  to see the fighting (?).  Ad. Wolgast, the lightweight  champion of the world, outclassed  George Memsic in a scheduled  nine-round bout in Los Angeles.  Packy McFarland outclassed  Owen Moran in New York. Joe  Gans,' at the time he fought  Nelson in Nevada, could have.  whipped all of them, taking them  on; in turns day by day. The  Game is not what it used to be.  They are having a hot old time  in the municipal kettle- in Vancouver. Mayor Taylor refuses to  conduct business on political lines  and is making a fight for non-  partizanship in municipal politics.  If it is allowed to bring party  politics into municipal matters  anywhere on the continent, the  Canadian section of it at least,  we may expect the corruption to  follow in the Dominion which is  an inherent factor in municipals  ties of the United States. It is  a great deal easier to build up a  political machine to deal with  municipal matters and to make  that a part of fa huge' provincial  machine thanit is to make astate  machine a controlling factor in  municipal matters. The Americans have taken refuge from  party politics under Commission  government. The party system  in long years of operation became  an obsession to voters as long as  municipal councils directly controlled all public works, and the  only course which could obviate  this difficulty was the adoption of  the Commission system, whereby  the issue is "men,"nonparties.  A Yankee skipper by the name  of Call has defied.the Vancouver  _poIice_to=-summon-him-asa-wit-  ness over a dog-stealing charge  against his purser. Call was  called by Magistrate Snaw, but  pshaw!���the call that Call got  when the detective paid a call  was not strong enough to convince Call that the call was imperative. So he called the legal  minions caustic names. One of  them called him down. So Call  finally accepted the call and went  into court.    He had gall!  Last Friday was St. Patrick's  day and a spirit of Donnybrook  per vaded the House of Commons  aty Ottawa. Glen Campbell,  mtemberfor Dauphin, Man., informed Dr. Neeley, member fcr  Humboldt that the latter was a  "liar, absolutely a liar, and once  and always a liar." Reports say  that during the racket which followed the charge the doctor sat  nervously chewing his cud on the  seat. Glen Campbell then issued  a challenge to James Jeffries to  dare to insinuate that he (Campbell) was a corrupter of political  appointees.  Recently in the House of Commons, Sir Edward Grey, of the  Fdreign Office, expressed the hope  that an agreement might be  reached with the United States  government by which all differ-  Australia is to expend thirteen  million :pounds ($65,000,000)   in  building up an adequate system  of defence against possible invasion.     The proximity of the  Japanese Empire and the density  of   that . country's ; population  makes the '' Yellow Peril'' a very  real matter for Australian politicians to consider. We remember  the occasion of the visit of a Japanese squadron to Melbourne immediately after the close of the  Russo-Japanese fraeas.  The officers were banqueted, in accordance with international custom,  and several dances were given in  their honour.  At one of these an  Australian M.P. asked an officer  what he thought of the Asiatic  Exclusion   laws   of    Australia.  "Ah," replied the latter, with  the ubiquitous smile of his nation,  "you're laws will not cause worry  when we wish to come."  our contemporary says: "But the  bare statement that more than  $300,000,000 will this year pour  into Canada for investment and  development purposes is enough  to put the people of some of the  states on guard, for with capital augmented to such an extent  in a single year Canada will experience a period of industrial  and commercial activity not hitherto equalled in the history of  the Dominion."  A part of this capital, says the  Seattle paper, will go into British  Columbia and will "be used to  found and foster industries directly in competition with the industries of the State of Washington."    Therefore  it thinks the  time has come when the principles of efficiency and  economy  should be applied to  American  industries, and the federal government should modify its policies as to enable industrial establishments to compete with those  in' this province on, equal terms.  What it seems to have in mind  especially is the modification of  the policy of   the   Washington  government in regard to timber  reserves.    It pleads for the adoption in the State of Washington of the  same   timber  policy  that prevails in this province, for  it says the policy of the British  Columbia government will place  the lumber interests of Washington at a disadvantage.    Specifically what it asks for is that the  timber reserves not held by the  federal government  shall  be  thrown open to lumbermen  on  the payment of a royalty and under stringent restrictions as to  cutting.���Victoria Colonist.  r  =��is  prittg  JVXotstday,    March    27th  Just a Little Better Than Customary  The PUBLIC CORDIALLY INVITED  ���  Quilchena Avenue  Between  Armstrong's and Bennett and Reid's  ^  MORE ROOSEVELT  Phoenix, Ariz., March. 17���  Reports that Colonel Roosevelt  had completed arrangements for  organizing a cavalry regiment  for service should the United  States and Japan go to war, created widespread joy amongst fol^  lowers of the colonel during the  Spanish war, many of whom are  in this vicinity.

CLAIMS FISH INDUSTRY  - Seattle. ���Amazement has been  caused in fishing circles by a bulr  letin just issued by the census in  which Massachusetts is given first  place as a fishing state and Washington salmon gets no mention at  all, the salmon industry being  classified as manufacturing, not  as fishing.  Including salmon, Washington's fisheries exceed those of  Massachusetts by 30 per cent.

B.C  SPORT  With the appointment of a president, vice-president, manager  and secretary for the baseball  team, at the meeting of the  Merritt Athletic Club last Tuesday evening, the first move towards the formation of a good  gathering of stick - wielders,  fielders and ball-throwers, who  will become premiers of the Dry  Belt before the season of 1911 is  ended, was made.  It is now up to those who are  able to play baseball to come forward and demonstrate the extent  of , their knowledge.     Costigan,  the manager, is somewhat of a  ball tosser, but Ross and Reid  should give 'him a close run for  the position on the box.    It is  only by getting out on the field  that they will be able to settle  the question  The general committee meets  next Monday evening, when the  question of securing a proper  ball field will be gone into. But  we wish to point out this : that  all the meetings and discussions  in the history of baseball never  made a ball team. The aspirants  for positions must get out and  practice at every opportunity  and let the committee in charge  take care of the ground question.  Thero is any amount of good  material in town, but there is no  college. You see we were curious  to know who was so thoughtful  as to mail us a copy of this valuable journal. Following is the  report of the expert :���  "I have received a copy of the  Hedley Gazette and have been  requested to closely examine the  blue pencil mark which splits the  title to an article, as though someone wished to draw particular  attention to that article. Examining this mark closely, I find  that the stroke was from left to  right. By the finesse with which  the initial half inch of the mark  is drawn I deduce that a, razor-  edged blue pencil was used.  Evidently the wielder of the  pencil is of an irascible disposition, because in the last eighth  of the half inch upward stroke  the line becomes suddenly heavy,,  as though the wielder were sud-  suddenly aroused to a sense of  righteous indignation. The line  continues upward for another  half inch, rather slowly or heavily  drawn, I should think when it  takes a sudden 'dyspeptic downward dash, ending with a deep  gash, which penetrates the print-  paper right through to page five.  While I have no other specimen  of the writer's handwriting, I  should say that the pencil mark  in question was written by a person labouring under a heavy  strain. I should that only a deep  sense of wrong should be the  motif, and should recommend  that he be warned that a diet of  oatmeal or bran and olive oil  would be an excellent sedative,  I might add that the whole curve  of the pencil stroke is a miniature  reproduction of the curve of the  Hertzian waves used in Wireless."

Oliver has introduced a  Bill in the House of Commons which, if  passed in its present form, will have a'  far-reaching   effect    upon   holders   of  water records.in the -Railway Belt, in  which the courts have recently decided  the Dominion government has control of  the water.    Section 3 of the Bill practically abolishes all grants made by the  Provincial  government,   which   means  that all water records made since  1871  and up to 1909 in the Railway Belt will  cease to exist.  Section 7 of the' Bill provides for  "regulatiornrto-blTm"ade_by"the"Governor-  in-Council, and sub-section (e) of that  section provides that regulations may  be made for the confirmation and recognition of existing rights.  If the Act passes in this shape it will  create endless confusion and delay and  will be a fruitful source of litigation.  Control of the rights of individuals to  water should not be vested in the Gov-  ernor-in-Council. No man will feel  secure in his rights until his special case  has thus been disposed of. Even if the  Govemor-in-Council should adopt blanket regulations, this will be done in the  secrecy of the council chamber, where  those who have invested the fruits of  years of labour and much capital could  not be represented. Moreover, such  regulations. will be subject to change  without notice and in secret. .;. ;  It should be possible to lay down a  broad basis by which those now in pos  session of water rights could be left in  equitable possession. The Act could lay  down a basis of distribution so tqat men  who have invested largely in irrigation  lands would be protected in their full  requirements, and those who have more  than their needs should be compelled to  relinquish their surplus to those who  can use it.  In no case should the right to water  be subject to regulations passed by  order-in-council. The law should be  made elastic in its provisions and be administered by an impartial commission  and should be an Act of Parliament..  Tenure of water rights subject to change  in cameaa is not sufficiently stable and  secure to induce investors to buy lands  or invest capital in their development.  The law should be enacted by the House  of-Commons,-where-amendnients-can be  discussed and fought out.���Saturday  Sunset.  will be assessed about ten dollars  per head for this work and for !  the caretaking.  .

TENNIS SEASON OPEN  Last Sunday afternoon the first  game of tennis in the 1911 season  was played on the courts of the  Diamond Vale townsite.    About  eight players donned soft shirts  and rubber shoes for the occasion  and ran themselves stiff enough  to satisfy the most enthusiastic.  J. P. Boyd, G. Tandy and D'Arcy  Costigan were the most scientific  wielders of the rackets, though  Ben Browitt ran them a close  second.     C.  Parkinson   showed  promising ability with his "gut  and willow."   So far, J. W. Ellis  has not shown up for a practice,  but as it is said that he is a skilful and enthusiastic devotee of  the game his friends anticipate  that he will come out near the  head of the list by the time the  season closes.  A. W.. Strickland, the local  trustee of the cup, advises all  local tennis players to see to it  that the cup stays here at the  end of the year. So far he himself has not shown up for a practice. S. N. Dancey came out on  Tuesday afternoon for the first  time, and managed to break the  double-fault record.

PRAISES TAFT  VOGHT STREET  NEAR DEPOT  London, March 18." ��� British  echoes of President Taft's statements in the interests of world  peace continued today when Lord  Chancellor Loreburn, presiding  at a meeting in the interests of  international peace, said:  "When a man holding an office  such as the American presidency  goes to the limit, which Taft did  in urging arbitration, it certainly  raises the hope of making a success of arbitration."  The chancellor praised Sir Edward Grey, foreign secretary,  for his support of President Taft,  adding:  "Now, if the great continental  statesmen would add their voices-  to those of Taft and Sir Edward  there=would=bea=tremendous,step,  forward in the world's civilization."

WEIGHING A CARGO   ,  An ingenious new invention  :for weighing ashipscargo.is that  known as the porhydrometer. It  was devised by Signor Emilia de  Dorenzi, an Italian engineer, and  the results it records are. said to  be accurate within 1-1.000th; per  cent. It works on the well known  Archimedean principle that * a  floating body displaces its own  weight of water. The apparatus  consists of a float or aerometer,  cylindrical in form; this is placed  in a chamber of the vessel which  communicates with the water  outside. As the ship is loaded  and sinks, so the water rises in  the chamber. The float being  fixed, a larger portion becomes  immersed in' the water, and its  apparent weight lessened. By a  simple arrangement of levers this  apparent loss of weight - of the  cargo is thus indicated.  A Good Place  to Eat  is appreciated by everyone.  What is nicer than to sit  down to a "good square" in  a comfortable, airy dining  room, where everything is  spick and span and the service prompt and accurate-?-  You naturally enjoy your  meal���you feel in good humor, and your digestive organs do not get out of tune.

Phoenix,   Ariz.���Former   Arizona office holders under the administration of President Roosevelt attach a political significance  to his coming visit to this place.  There was a meeting here last  night of former territorial and  federal office holders, who. had  been    appointed   to   office   by  Colonel Roosevelt when he was  president.    One of the men who  attended the conference stated  that he   expected   to   ask   Mr.  Roosevelt upon his arrival here  whether  he   would  accept' - the  nomination for president in 1912.  Unless the  ex-president's reply  should be positively negative, it  was stated that those who met  last night would bend every effort  to send a delegation from Arizona  to the new Republican national  convention instructed to work for  Roosevelt for president.    In any  event," it was said,  these men  would" work  for any  candidate  whom Roosevelt would suggest.  RUSSIA AND MISSIONS  : The foreign board has handed to  M.

The foregoing is culled from a  number of pertinent paragraphs  emanating from the pen of Jas.  W. Grier, who conducts a sort of  Poor Richard's Almanac, under  the head ''this'and That,'' in the  Record. It made usvthink, and  we took a pencil arid jotted a few  of the brain waves on a pad.  When he penned those lines  Grier must have dipped his quill  in a bottle of Wisdom Extract.  "If a man is in politics he is in  it for the pie." How often "has a  man aspired to political office but  that his enemies trained a searc-  light on his! alleged purpose in  seeking the glare of the public  eye? !  If a newspaper is a purblind  supporter of an administration,  waving laurel wreaths enthusiastically at every move of the ministry,, slinging ink in dithyrham-  bic eulogy,- asserting and asseverating without intermission that  the leaders of the party in power  are the "best ever", careful at  the same time to keep a weather  eye on the "pap", what chance  has the Public got;?  Is an independent' supporter of  certain principles to be dubbed a  traitor to political principles if he  should find his leaders introducing legislation inimical to what  he regards as the best interests  of the public and protest? It is  not right that he-should be, ' but  let such an one emerge from the  ruck and watch pap-maddened  sycophants .rend him. This applies to no particular party, but to  all.    .       ^ .......   .    ...  Even in the opposition to party  policies which may be ascribed  to personal animosities there is a  certain ammount of worth to the  elector who votes conscientiously.  Sir Joseph Ward, premier of the  Dominion of New Zealand for the  past seven years, once said: "Genuine criticism helps and does not  hinder a politician."  We question very seriously  whether there is a party_. paper  in the country which would have  broken loose about Vaccination  if Bruce had not lunged in with  a razor-edged argument. Then  it was due in part to the spontaneous enthusiasm with the public  hailed a champion that some papers unwillingly joined the chorus  of dissent.  Newspapers have a sacred obligation to treat their readers  fairly.  ������ . .. o ~  COWARDS' SLANDER    '   .-���.- ���   Land-Act r --       - -   -  Nicola Land District.

Deputy Ubru-  soff alleged that women students during the recent disturbed period consorted with drunken  sailors in order to carry on the  revolutionary propaganda more  Successfully. Shouting "down  with the blackguards" and similar indignant protests, members  of the left, leaped from their  benches and started a scene of  uproar and great disorder.   .  The president was unable to  control the deputies. Ubrusoff  tried to resume speaking, but in  vain. The president was obliged  to ask him to leave the tribune as  the hour allowed the speaker had  elapsed.  , Ubrusoff's supporters raised a  great outcry and the president  closed the sitting. The opposing  faction rushed toward the tribune  but others threw themselves between the two parties and prevented a collision. Only when  the lights were turned off did the  deputies quit the hall. ,.,-..  Land Act  Kamloops Division Nicola Land District.
