The fact that the Vancouver
Board of Trade have decided to
include Anyox and Alice Arm in
the itinerary of their northern
tour is a source of great satisfac
tion, especially to the latter town.
While their time is somewhat limited in Alice Arm, and which
does not allow a large amount of
sightseeing, no pains should be
spared on their behalf by Alice
Arm citizens to see that their time
is spent in obtaining as much valuable information as possible and to
leave pleasant memories of their
visit. Commtttees should be at
once appointed, so that the day's
programme can be carried through
without a dull moment being left
at the disposal of the visitors.
make room for younger men. At
no time in the world's history has a
man of moderate income a better
opportunity than now to provide
comforts for his old age. Government annuities, and life insurance
companies offer splendid opportunities.
The work of the National Committee for the celebration of the
Diamond jubilee of Confederation
is well in hand. The co-operation
of the Provincial Governments is
assured and considerable interest is
being displayed by the leading cities and municipalities. Every city
town and hamlet in the Dominion
of Canada, will this year make
special efforts to celebrate the
diamond jubilee of Canada's Confederation. Plans on an elaborate
a scale as possible have already
been formed in almost every city
and settlement from the Atlantic to
the Pacific and this year the first
of July will be celebrated on a scale
not heretofore approached.
"Youth is a blunder; manhood
a struggle; old age a regret," is a
proverb which rings true in every
word, .and which has been proven
true by centuries of bitter experience by mankind. It is seldom
that youth commences to accumulate a store of wealth for the time
when age eliminates his earning
power. Manhood generally brings
a family, added expenditure, and
often a struggle for existence, and
after a while old age creeps along
which, if early foresight has not
been shown brings regrets. Every
man who is fortunate enough to
receive a regular pay check, owes
it to himself to put by a percentage
of his earnings for the time when
age places him on the shelf to
Misunderstanding is the static in
our daily lives. We are satisfied
that the major portion of the little
and big troubles that come to us
are the results or misunderstanding,
or in other words too much static.
You do something we do not
understand, and we immediately
charge you with being crooked, or
if we are inclined to be halfway
fair about it, we at least ascribe to
your wrong motives.
We have made a rule, and this
one we are going to live up to.
We are never going to charge anybody with anything until we thoroughly understand the situation.
If anything happens that seems
to be wrong, we are going to see
the party personally if possible and
talk it over, but if the distance is
too great for personal contact, we
are going to write him and give
him an opportunity to explain
before we fly off the track and undoubtedly lose a personal or business friend.
In this way we know we are
going to tune out of our life very
much by way of static or misunderstanding.

"The truest fact in all the world
is that the more we do for someone
else the more we develop ourselves
and the stronger our own influence
and character becomes."
The Terrace Board of Trade will
approach the department of mines
regarding the establishment of ore
sampling works at Prince Rupert,
which would serve not only the
Skeena district, but also Stewart,
Alice Arm and the Coast mining
area. Such a plant, it is claimed,
would be of great benefit to prospectors who are unable to finance
shipments to smelters.

The sudstantial progress of the Mining industry of this Province is strikingly exhibited in the following

Lode mining has only been in progress for about 25 years, and only about one-half of the Province has
been even prospected; 200,000 square miles of unexplored mineral bearing land are open for prospecting.
The Mining Laws of this Province are more liberal and the fees lower, than those of any other Province
in the Dominion, or any Colony in the British Empire.
Mineral locations are granted to discoverers for nominal fees.
Absolute Titles are obtained by developing such properties, security of which is guaranteed by
Crown Grants. ,
Practically all British Columbia Mineral Properties upon whioh development work has been don<>
are described in some one of the Annual Reports of the Minister of Mines. Those considering
miniiiff investments should refer to such reports. They are available without oharge on application

Big Trees  and  Small
Families in B. C.
British Columbia has the largest
trees and the smallest families in
the British Empire: an example
of the custom this province has of
making records.
The reason why comparatively
few babies are being born in the
Pacific Coast province are many—
aid some of them are surprising.
Who would imagine, for instances
that there are 20,000 more married
men than married women here?
Yet the provincial government has
not issued a proclamation offering
protection to persecuted husbands!
In fact, the reason for the presence
in our midst of such an army of
homeless husbands is that, in order
to do better for their families than
they could in their own land, they
have selected British Columbia as
the plaoe in which to make their
slake and bring their people when
success has been attained. Those
who emigrate to go farming need
the work of their families, but the
work to be done in British Columbia is principally in taking out the
timber and ore. Six in every hundred industrial workmen in British
Columbia-are in the logging camps
and that occupation offers few
opportunities for family life.
Men may not be practical, but they
wouldn't wear knee pants and spend
their time trying- to pull the things
down over their knees.

Island Coal Industry Feels
Oil Competition
Proposed conversion of Dominion
Government steamers on thePacif-
ic Coast into oil burners is meeting
with vigorous opposition from Vancouver Island coal mine operators.
The increased consumption of
fuel oil on the coast in recent years
has been a severe blow to the coal
industry, but despite this faot, production on Vanoouver Island has
shown a tendency towards more
stable conditions this year, the output for January and February
being considerably larger than during the corresponding period last
Mining is Safer Industry than
Many Other Lines
According to U. S Chamber of
Commerce, mining failures are few
and far between in percentage, as
compared with failures in every
other line of profitable endeavor,
including banking, manufacturing,
merchandizing and farming. And
then, according to authentic authority, the return iu profit
from the mining dollar is far in
excess of the return from the banking, manufacturing, merchandising
and farming dollar.
