A few years ago  the man who would venture to do*  scribe tbe Kootenays as fruit growing  districts would, be looked upon as a  visionary or an Imbecile; today Southern British Columbia is acknowledged  to be the finest fruit country on tbls  continent. Not only will lt produce  fruit in abundance, but 'the quality of  Us fruit Is superior to that grown, ln  any other part dt America. Certain1  varieties of fruit attain perfection la-  certain localities���������-for Instance, the  Fameuse apple t develops Its best qualities on the Island of Montreal���������-but)  taking a collection of British Columbia fruit, it is larger, better colored  and bettet������flavored than any ~s*-nilar  mlBceltaasjme lot, the prodoet of any  other country. Proof of this] Is not far  to seek, Is 1908 Messrs. Stirling and  Pltcalrn, of Kelowna, nn Ottnetan  Lake, shipped a trial carload of apples  to Oreat Britain. Tbe shipment consisted of Spys, Baldwins, Ontartos and  Canada Reds, Tbey arrived In Olss*  gow, Scotland, on November *tb,f In  splendid condition and sold at **. nor  box, or sboat $1 more per barrel Qsna,  the cboiosst Pastern Canadian stales  **av " "*  i miiiiimimsMHIsUmoiich  t  ���������i H  > ���������>  ikwm mm  The return ot YanewverV annual exhibition  hss brought together a multitude of-people and a  splendid aggregation ot products front oar muses,  , workshops, forests, fields, schools, art galleries  and places of business, the resets ^bt assuring���������as an object lesson in present snd future  pessjfitlftie-j. |f our eity and sdjacent country  ean yield products of such -asgaitode in its infancy, what wm it not do when manhood fr af^  *s)*ss*d*r^sfawsn::Ti*v1ii*e'- yes*f"****di' add "Hs tiuour^s  improvements and increase, unless the sporting  feature monopolizes interest tc the permanent injury of the fair proper, as too oftej occurs.  lide4lhowi at tht Exhibition.  A good many condemn these side-shows, but it  is a fact that large numbers are attracted by these  oddities and frivolities far more than by the exhibition proper. The body of men handling the  exhibition-tolerate these side-shows and must do  so in a way that will make the annual fair take  care of itself. The Association is composed of a  body of Vancouver gentlemen of public spirit  who give their time for the sake of helping out  the interests of the whole community. They get  no return but the satisfaction of unselfishly try-  ing to do something for the city and the surrounding country.  Those who complain of side-shows, horse racing,  foot races, motor races and other attractions,  should bear in mind that the demand exists for  those things, and if they are not furnished the  annual show must collapse for the want of appreciation and attendance.        .   ��������� .  We must have more money for cindering and  improving the whole'campuses well as for the  greatly required additional buildings, such as  will house the products of the mines, forests, sea,  garden, field and factory, as a permanent exhibition under skilled management. These are our  ideals in part, and to this end we shall continue  to labor in faith.  The rain Thursday and Friday seriously interfered with the exhibition, causing loss and disappointment so that the directors extended the time  to Monday and Tuesday of this week.' The result  of this extension was not satisfactory in attendance ������nd sight-seeing. Many of the exhibit articles had been removed and an air of lessitude  spread over the~whole grounds, causing the exhibition to end indifferently instead of excitement  and hope of its' return next year.  The British government, through its embassy at  Washington, has notified the United States that  Great Britain would regard the proposed Panama  canal legislation, which excepts American vessels  from paying canal toll while denying that privilege to vessels of other nations, as a violation of  the Hay-Pauncefbte treaty. Germany, France and  other shipping nations are reported to be in accord  with the British protest, but are letting John Bull  act as spokesman. It is understood that part of  Great Britain's objections is founded on the extensive shipping interests of the Canadian Pacific  Railway���������heavily subsidized by the Dominion  government. The provision in the bill as it now  stands, debarring railroad-owned vessels from going through the canal, would hit the Canadian  transcontinental railroads hard. The" indications  at present are that Great Britain's protest will  not be heeded. President Taft stands firmly by  the bill to favor American ships, and will follow  the lead of Congress. Should Congress insist on  its position, the matter may go to The Hague Tribunal for arbitration.  Having arrived at Prince Rupert. Canada's  coming tyost Important City, we took the nrst out*  going train of the Grand Trunk Pacific and bad a  very pleasant run up to Skeena Crossing, not far  short of Hazelton. On our wayr we passed  through the townsites of JCaien, Phelan, Skeena  City, Sockeye, Tyee, Mann, Kwinitsa, Salvus; Ex-  stew, Shames, Amsbury, Littleton and Vanarsdol.  .The arrangement for dining on the train was  unique" and quite satisfactory. A sleeping coach  of the cheap tourist fashion was fixed up with  small tables between the seats, and here sandwiches, tea, coffee, cake and canned goods were  served quite reasonably.  Arriving at "Kwinitsa" we were surprised to  learn that here are salt works. The water is boiled down and salt for commercial purposes is the  result. Tub salt springs are extensive and promise a valuable industry. i  Throughout the Skeena valley, up to tile crossing, about twelve miles from Hazclton, there is a  lot of really good farming and garden land. There'  are already some clearings, and the fires were  making rapid havoc of all sorts of timber while  doing valuable ground clearing for. the settlors.  "Prom'the Skeena crossing we were favored wifb  the choice of two good steamers, and the fare for  the twelve miles up to ITazelton was only fifty  cents. The current most of the way is strong and  it requires much power and careful navigation to  make a successful trip.  Old llazelton, where the steamers stop, is well  situated on the Skeena. a large and valuable river.  New Hazelton, on the line.of the new railway, is  four miles distant, and is on the Bulkier River,  through the valley of which river the railwsiy  makes its way into the interior of the province.  From Hazelton we went by stage east wan!  twenty miles, at a cost of $30.00, being sjilO.OO per  man. The stage went out in the morning and returned in the" evening, bringing a paying load. I  might say that our return to Ilazelton cost only  $1.00 per man, as we took one of the incoming  freighting teams. It gave us a really excellent  trip for our money. The difference between a  stage and a freight wagon is considerable.  Having dined at the "twenty mile house"' we  packed our stuff and selves on foot the balance of  the way,'two miles and a half.  We were visiting at the coal lands of the Grand  No. 2  No. 3  1.50-  1.0  20.00  27.50  57.50  60.50  20.00  10.00  1,00  3.00  ....il....���������ii..^i,    vfvii.   ������������������������������������  right of way almost the entire length of the  twelve sections.

The quality of the  coal may be seen from tbe following analyses:  .Analyses by J.

His reports on the other two specimens are  vt-ry similar. This should he instructive to all  who are interested it' the future of Northern British Columbia.

The average eatings of the Ulster sgrici  .laborers was, in J907, twelve shiMngs and" one  penny per week, w compared with eleven shillings  and twopence in Munster, ten shillings and ,te**f-  pence in Leinster, and ten shillings in Connaught  Ulster property in 1910-11 represented 35 per  cent, of the rateable property of the whole of Ireland. Fifty pr cent, of the total extemsl trade  of Ireland is done through Belfast alone, and 60  per cent, of the direct trade with foreign and colonial countries is carried on through Ulster ports.  It is estimated that approximately one half the  trade of Ireland, both in imports and exports, is  done through Belfast. According to the trade  returns for 1910, the gross amount of customs re-  venue received at the ports of Ulster in 1910 was  70 per cent, of the totaLreceived in the whole of  Ireland. No wonder the enemies of Ulster want  to get control of this wealthy and successful Irish  province. If they succeed then the poverty and  stagnation common to all countries ground down  by the masters of the Nationalist party and their  tools iii the British House of Commons Mould  come to patriotic and loyal Ulster.  Trunk B. C. Co., Ltd., which contain twelve sections, or 7,680 acres. There are several seams of  coal visible. Considerable work has been done b\-  the "company, and it is evident they have a good  property. In one place they tunnelled in 136 feet.  having in view all the way a ledge of nearly six  feet of good coal. Another vein gives a thickness  of nearly three feet. Several other seams are visible on the banks of the Bulkley River, which  flows through the company's holdings, three or  four miles. With the coal, the timber, the land,  the water and townsite, the Grand Trunk B. C. C������.

The statement is that a  private understanding has been reached among the  Albanians, Austrians, Bulgarians and Greeks,  whereby, as soon as the time is ripe. Albania will  receive some form of automony within the Austrian empire, Austria will advance to Salonica.  Bulgaria will move on parallel lines to the Aegean  sea farther east and secure most of the remainder  of Macedonia, while Greece will be compensated  by the acquisition of Crete and some territory  along her northern border. England may be satisfied with "regularizing" her position in Egypt,  and Russia may or may not move against Eastern  Turkey as she is already moving in Northern  Persia. This leaves Germany out' of the deal  altogether, which seems strange, as until recently  Germany has lieen supposed to have more influence  ro Tur&asn matter** than other power;  Wonderful Growth of British Ship-Building.  The British Board of Trade gives the following  returns concerning the increase of shipping in  Great Britain, the Empire of the "Naval Covenant":  In 1831 the tonnage was 2,221,356; 1841, 2,935,-  .'*..���������.); in 1853. 3,663,344; in 1861. 4,806,826; in 3871,  5,694,123; in .1881. 6.691,996; In 1891, 8.279,297;  iu 1901, 9.608120; in 1911. 11.698.508.

This is a hurtful habit and is not characteristic  of refinement and good breeding. Real ladies,  with a keen sense of modesty, do not chew gum  on the streets, in the tram cars, and trains. No  man takes a deep delight in seeing a girl or woman smugging wax or rubber, by the mouthful,  as she rides along in a street car, or while she is  in church, or even at a theatre. The habit is costly aud unhealthful. It is all right for saliva to  flow at given and necessary times, but to keep it  flowing by chewing mouthfuls of gum is most  hurtful. Besides it is s < hideous and unrefined  habit. . -    . THE WESTERN CALL.  ;.-,';,'^'."'::-v^^  y.'x'xyyxxyx^ y y,''yy,yyyy?yy yy-j-y^yyy/^fxyyyy^'^^j^^  '.'.'��������� x*...

Public opinion appears to be to a  large extent in favor of the nurses and  action of the board is tbe chief subject  of discussion throughout the city. Doctors are united in Bupport of the girls  and are said to be likely to take some  definite action toward' securing their  reinstatement and possibly the dismissal of Miss Baxter, acting matron,  when the trouble arose.

OTTAWA, Aug. 16.���������Possibility of  successful development of profitable  oyster beds on the Pacific coast is suggested in a report made to the biological board in a rport by Prof. Stafford, of McGlll University.  In 1905 a number of Atlantic oysters  were transformed to the Pacific. Since  that date no attention has been paid to  them. Recently, however, Prof. Stafford has visited the beds and learned  that the oysters are breeding rapidly.  ��������� As a result the Department of Marine and Fisheries will probably take  further steps and propagate oysters in  Pacific coast waters.  8askatoon Grows Bigger Every Day  That Saskatoon will have 50,000 people in 1915 is the opinion of Mr. G.

Look  at It this way: This Jap is an enemy.  He was using his dirty money to do  barm to you and to your government.  Wo have his money now. It is prize-  money taken from the enemy, just the  same aa If it was a fleet, do you un-.  deratand?

Yazimoto. If he ever calls for it he  can have It."  "Under those circumstances.** said:  Brockett, "I will take the money. If I  ever become, friendly with Mr. Yazimoto, I will give it back to him.",  "As for me," said Mr. Kelly, dealing out the sheaves of bills, "I am now  a naturalized American citizen and a  loyal one, even if I was born in Sicily.  As a prize court, sitting on the dlvl-;  sion of moneys taken from a Japanese;  warship, I declare the same condemned; and split evenly among the  five cruisers which effected the cap-,  ture. Do I hear any objections? None.  The money is hereby divided."  "I suppose," Mr. Kelly resumed,  after the money had' been pocketed  and the laughter had died down, "that,  you fellows want to be on your way.  There's another exit from this place-  through a little tunnel that leads under tbe Chink ^unkstore oh the south  and then turns Into a passage1 tnat  runs aU the way Into a basement In  Bayard street. Now there's a chance  tnat the Jap will be stalling 'round,  watching for a chance to put something over, bo I'll just tend to that  all probability," argued Solano, "they  will be counting on our going either  -north, towards Albany, or east towards Boston,, and we can simply alter  one small section ot our route to fit  the exigencies of the cane."  "We will have to cut out a few of  the turns; and bends we had mapped  out," said Brockett. "or the delay we  have just beea through may hold us>  back, considerably.

And, when  all these troubles are over, come down;  to,Doyers street some day and spend  a little Ume with Kelly."  CHAPTER XII.  The spoils of war having been carefully put away, and the escort of four;  gangsters notified of their duties/  Brockett and Solano started on tbej  devious journey that was to cover so:  large a portion of North America be-;  fore It could be satisfactorily com-!  pleted���������a longer trip, ln fact, than the  youngsters had anticipated, and even!  more replete with excitement and ad*'  venture than they had expected. Kelly,!  frankly cordial and evidently wholly]  honest In his intentions, introduced:  tbem to the precious four who were to'  see them safely out of Manhattan. The!  gang leader's Instructions to his le-!  gionarles were short, simple and eas-'  Hy understood.  "These two lads," quoth Mr. Kellyj  "are right people. The best ever, believe me, and I want you four to look  out for them till they are over in Jer-  ������ey. If anybody tries to get to them,  it'll be a nunch of Japs. Keep cool,  watch close, and anytime a slant-eyed  monk tries to get gay, just trim him.  If you have to use your gats, why use  'em���������it will be all right, and there'*  somebody higher up than me that will  see you don't get none the worst of it.  Remember, now���������keep heeled for yellow men, and don't be nowise slow if  you have to get some cf 'em."  Brockett and Solano had quickly decided that tbe Christopher street ferry  should take them back to the Jersey  side, figuring out this plan of action  on the theory that their tireless enemies would hardly expect them to  double bock upon tbeir .tracks,   "in  mrcsrfrmww*mm  Jersey side, we can hurry right along..  We etui have a fair margin of tbn������  ahead of us. but we can't waste many  hours."  The escort provided by the friendly  Kelly strolled along with the boys Cor  a block or so, pointing out places of  Interest and showing every evidence  of good humor. As tbe little group  turned Into Park Row, one of the escorting four whispered in Brockett'*  ear. briefly, admonisblngly.  "You two fellers walk ahead���������'bout  fifty feet or so. We'll come along back  of you as If we didn't know you. If  anybody's laying for you along hero  we can pretty near get 'em tbat way."  And, like ,a quartet of welt-trained  soldiers, tbe gangsters dropped back  till perhaps twenty paces separated  tbem from their charges. Brockett  nnd Solano, willing to accept the judgment of tbe gang-youths In such affairs, walked along, gazing Into the  windows of the ancient pawnshops,  scrutinizing the tide of riffraff and human flotsam that came ebbing to and  fro, and In general conducting themselves after tbe fashion of verdant-  greens just seeing New York by arc  light.  The huge, gloomy shadows of Brooklyn bridge loomed ahead, and the  surge of mixed humanity was thicker  and more diversified than ever, when  halt a dozen young men, rat-faced,  weasel-eyed, slinking amid tbe darker!  places like wolves along the edge of  the forest, came softly out from tbei  blackness -that surrounds the great  pillars of the "L" road. One of them,  a stocky fellow with a gray cap pulled  well down upon his forehead, stumbled against Solano, and, regaining  bis balance with a quick spring of his  nimble legs, caught the Cuban by tbe  arm.  "Say, young feller, wbatchu mean  by sbovin' people around, anyhow?  Can't you see where you are goin'?"  Solano shook off the detaining hand,  and Brockett closed up beside blm.  The pack of rat-faced young men  seemed to spring up around them like  ambushed Indians, and tbe trap was  as neatly sprung as ever a savage  planned an ambuscade. The next sec*!  tond there came the quick patter of-  feet from tbe rear; four more rat*'  faced, furtive-eyed young men hadj  mingled with the attacking half-dozen,,  and the whole ten were exchanging!  amicable greetings.  , "Just keep off these two guys, just!  let 'em be," explained one of the es-<  cortlng four. .  J'Frlends of yours, Casey?" queried:  the apparent leader of the newcomers.'  "Friends of Kelly's, Ike. He told us'  to see that tbey got to any place they!  might choose to go." j  "Tbe deuce you say! All right. If  youse ducks says so. Tell Kelly yom  seen us, and we sent him our best re-!  gards." |  ."Sure thing, Ike. So long. See you'  later, maybe."  The recent assailants faded into thej  darkness of the "L" shadows as)  strangely as they came, and the quar- i  tet of protecting gangsters resumed!  the journey. J  "Good thing we went with you fel-l  lows," exulted tbe chief of the protective squad. "Those gorillas would  have fixed you sure." '  "So I should judge," admitted So-'  lano. "We would have given them'j  some fight, at that, but six against;  two would haye boon a little too;  strong. Are they part ot your own.  crowd?" ,  "Nix, not ln a hundred.

"Any. chance, fori-anyr more exeite*  intent?" asked Brocket;. a������ the oxpedi-.  tion, passed the bridge- eatrance and  then began a new. tack that- would  lead tbem to the fe**r-������  ; Tbe gangsters were -Acertaln. "Not ���������  jmuch shew for a***ftt*alng with any  ;gangs,'*-explained^ their leader, "but  '.If tbe Jap glckB are- as wild as ��������� tbey  :8eemto get yon, tneco may bo some*  i'thlng doing.

Although elm still leads among the  woods used for slack cooperage, spruce  is rapidly supplanting it. In the total  output of barrels In the Dominion last  year, there were used, according to  figures compiled by the forestry  branch of the Department of the Interior, 80,016,000 pieces of elm- In  staves, headings and hoops, as against  37,704,000 pieces of spruce. There were,  however, over 11,000,000 \ more spruce  staves and 9,000,000 fewer elm staves  reported for 1911 than for 1910. In  time, elm will probably be used only  for hoops, as It ia the best wood for  the purpose, the supply is fast diminishing, and other species can be used  to advantage for staves and headings.  The ultimate substitute for elm will  probably we birch, which ia comparatively Plentiful.   ���������  Slack cooperage is of vastly greater  Importance than tight cooperage in  Canada. This la because the majority  of Canadian products are of a rough  and dry nature, such as lime, potatoes, apples, dry fish, flour, cereals,  etc., and because Canadian woods are  best suited tb slack cooperage.  " White oak, the only Vobd which can  be used for containers of aicbliblic  liquids, has been practically e������haust*  ed in Canadian woodlands. JnV19U  only 2,7������8,00 Doak staves were' cut;  while 7,893,000 were Imported.   ::  A rough estimate on the part of  the forestry branch places the taifnt*  mum amount of material used In the  manufacture of all classes of cooperage  as 62,353,190 board feet, made up as  follows: Staves, 89,367,714 feet; "heading, 24.466,666 feet, find hoops, 62;853,-  190 feet  Arrested for Murder. n -"  CONSTANTINOPLE, Aug. f������i--  Lleut.
