THE SPEECH FROM THE THRONE The Speech. from the Throne read by Lieutenant-Governor Bulyea yester- day 'bears out the prediction that the legislature has a heavy session's vork it. The government -pro- gramme is no small one, and In addi- tion, tnere is an extraordinarily large number of -private bills. Educationists of the province will be pleased to know thai the govern- ment intends taking up the matter of technical education, for, as the speech from the throne intimates, this is a very necessary thing in'a province where industrial lines of activity are being developed so extensively. The important matters pertaining to municipalities aad municipal govern- ment are to be placed- in one de- partment under a responsible head. The exceedingly great Increase in the work connected -with these branches of government has made It one of the most important departments in the government.1'" The government proposes to remedy one of the defects at present exist- ing in the statutes by legislating so as to guarantee to widows a fair share of the estates left by their hus- bands. These are some, of the principal feat- ures of the programme that commend themselves to the electorate of this province. are only twenty tories in the Senate now. They will have a sym- pathetic feeling for the few remain- ing Liberals nvho were in the small eleven in Tapper's time. The people of Great Britain seem to be more concerned over a succes- sor for Earl Grey than does. If its good a man as the present Gov- ernor-Oeneral is chosen Canada will be perfectly satisfied. Xews must be scarce in the capital that the newspaper reporters have to start up the old story of the resigna- tion of R. L. Borden, and the impro- bable yarn of the dissolution of the House on the naval question. One would think it was the dog days. Dally HeraM, Friday, February 11, IMP Premier Roblin is away, and Hon. Bob Rogers is in charge. The house is -in season. Now watch Bob show the natives that it would be a good thing to have him at the head all the time, and that Roblin is a dim, distant back number. Prom this distance it looks like a ocd move to put the control of the British army and navy under the one department.

Everybody who has spoken to you who knows the true conditions has spoken favorably Isn't that' so? The fact of the matter is that B! C. Fruit Land is going to be a big-thing in the next five years. It simply can't help it. It will produce fruit, it has, the MARKET' and tho climate. We studied the B. C. Fruit Land situation thoroughly before we invested our money are convinced of its future. And from our knowledge of investments we Know that B. C. Fruit Lands will live up to our most sanguine expectations. They will make money for every-oue who invests now. It is indeed the opportunity of the hour. Our Fruit Lands on the Arrow Lakes will eventually become very valuable because of their choice location and because they do not require irrigation The payment of J20 down and per aero per month secures a fruit farm. Call and pick out a-10-acre plot.' There is surely uo better Investment ou the market. Furthermore you' can become independent quicker by buying and working a fruit farm in B.

The man who located Dr. Cook in Bermuda ranks higher as a discover- NAMING THE RIVER. The question of the re-naming of the Belly River bids fair to come to the fore again. The Geographical Society of Canada, which is the final authority on these matters, does not approve of the suggestion, made by the Board of Trade Uiat the name should be 'changed to Alberta, Although the communication does not say so, it infers that a change would he quite in place. There are several names that might with propriety be applied to the riv-j er which flows past this city. Owing! to the big bend or "belly" in the riv- -er. the Indians named it the "Moko- which is the Indian word for "belly" or "bend." That name would be acceptable, except for the fact tuat it might be embarrassing, as some said when the discussion was on before, if some fair visitor should ask what the word means. Those familiar with the topography or the country say that the St. Mary's is the main stream, and that it would be proper to have the river go by that name. The objection to that sug- gestion Is that already there are sev- eral St. .Mary's rivers. One has explained the names of the Bow and Beliy rivers by saying that the names were originally Beau and Belle, and -that the present names are corruptions o? the originals. The sug- gestion has been made that, in view of this, it vould be well to change the names of both rivers to the orig- inal names, which, indeed, are pretty and euphonious. Stil! another suggestion comes from the historical record that Verendrye, French explorer who first tramp- ed over the -wilderness that now is fast becoming the garden of the world, was the first white man to see the waters of the river now called the Belly. It is a record ot history that he came up the Saskatchewan as far as the junction of the Bow and the Belly. It is, therefore, suggested that the river be honored with the name of the dauntless explorer. Yet another suggestion is that the. name of South Saskatchewan be ap- plied to the rivers that flow through the channel occupied by the Belly River as well as that of the present Sonth Saskatchewan.
