Nelson Board of Trade Opposed To
Any Increase of Burdens on Interior Lumbermen.
Acting on a letter from Peter Lund,
manager of the Crow's Neat Pass Lumber company, the Nelson board of trade
went on record as deprecating any increase 'in' royalties or taxation whieh
would place an additional burden upon
the lumbermen of the interior of British
In his communication Mr. Lund referred to the proposal of Hon. W. R.
Rosb to increase the royalty jMi lumber
manufactured at mountain milB troiriBb'
cents to SI per thousand feet and the
forest protection tax front one cent to
1J cents, per acre, and to apply the coaat
scale to the interior.' He argued that
mountain lumbermen were operating
under conditions which were very unfavorable compared to those at the
coast on account of the lower grade of
timber, the difficulties of transporting
the logs to the mills and the higher cost
of labor and supplies, and declared that
the lumber companies between Kootenay Landing and Crow's Nest paid out
every month throughout the year $350,
000 and had not been in a position to declare a dividend for aome time. He also contended that the interior lumber-'
men were at present taxed higher in
many respects than those at the coaat.

Died at Westminster/.
The Bad news has reached hia' friends
here of the death of George'Price, "He
died at the home of his parents in New
Westminster, where he had been ill for
some time with a disease of the stomach. ! The deceased was about sixteen
years of'age and had lived, most of the
last four years in Chase where his parents were among the pioneers. Three
'sisters, Mrs. Wilson, Mrs. Morrison and
Mrs. Will Bradley, still live here. Much
sympathy is felt for the bereaved family.

Board of Trade Makes Vigorous Protest.   Fire Fighting Facilities
Should Lower Rates.
At the meeting of the Board of Trade
on Monday night there was a good attendance, the president, G. G. Chase,
occupying the chair.
After the correspondence had been
disposed of and the reports of committees heard and dealt with, G. Grant
drew the attention of the board to the
matter of fire insurance rates.
Two years ago a fire department had
been organized and the property holders
had subscribed liberally with the expectation that they would get lower insurance rates because of the protection
provided. Itiis result had not been a-
chieved and rates are the same to-day
as when there was no protection whatever.
The fire fighting force iB well organized and efficient. The equipment ia
ample for the needs of a town of this
size. There is a continuous water pressure of a hundred pounds or better and
on any building in the business section
of the town three streams can be easily
thrown. Yet many of the owners along
Shuswap Avenue are paying eight per
cent for insurance.        ^^^^^^^

At a special meeting of the Revelstoke Board of Trade on Friday laat the
business waa of more than local interest.
The following account is from the Mail
i Herald:
A special meeting of the Executive
of the Board of Trade waa held yesterday afternoon. The meeting waa in
part called to consider the proposed increase of timber dues aa suggested in
certain amendments to the land act proposed by the Hon. W. R. Ross minister
of lands. The secretary read a lengthy
communication from P. Lund, managing director of the Crows Nest Paat
Lumber Co., a copy of which was stated
to have been sent to W. A. Anstie,
president of the Mountain Lumbermen's
Association at Calgary. This communication ia too lengthy for publication in
this issue, but it deals with the difficulties under which the lumber industry in
ihe mountain districts ia at present laboring. After considerable discussion,
the meeting finally decided to send the
following wire-
To Sir Richard McBride,  Hon. W, R.
Ross, and Hon. Thomas Taylor, Victoria:
Revelstoke Board of Trade desire to
express strong disapproval of any increase being now made in timber royalties or forest protection fees. Tim-
bermen are paying an enormous share
of Provincial revenues in spite of poor
state of lumber business and this Board
cannot understand why the government
Inow should seek Co add to their burdens.
The proposed changes spell ruination to
the lumbermen of the Interior.
H. H. McVity.
Secretary Revelstoke Board of Trade,
The question of the opening up of the
government lands around Revelstoke
was next taken up and discussed at
length when the meeting decided to send
the following telegram to Premier Borden and R. F. Green M. P.
Revelstoke, February 13, 1913.
Right Hon. R. L.  Borden,  and R. F.
Green, M. P., Ottawa, Ont.
Citizens of Revelstoke are disgusted
at delay in settling Land Question around here. The land has been tied up
for years. Cannot something be done
at once to settle this? Maber made his
report months ago but nothing done.
H. H. McVity,
Cost By Day Work is too Expensive
And Government Will Build By
Contract in Future.
There ia likely to be a change of programme in the British Columbia sections of the national highway known aa
the Interprovincial Highway. The coet
of construction is exceeding too far the
eatimate made. So far the work haa
been done under the provincial department of public works under foremen
appointed in the usual way. The results are not satisfactory. On one
stretch, for instance, clearing and grading haa cost (10,000 per mile and gravelling has still to be done, and that waa
not a specially difficult piece of road.
Consequently the government ia thinking very seriously of letting the work
out by contract. The advantages of
this method over the other are that better and more work will be done for the
same amount of money expended.

Better Get It.
The Dominion Entomologist, Dr. C.
Gordon Hewitt, has colleoted in a convenient form of published as a bulletin
with explanatory notes, the regulations
governing the importation of various
kinds of vegetation into Canada: This
bulletin entitled, "Legislation in Canada to prevent introduction and spread
of insects, pests and diseases destructive to vegetation into Canada," is
published as bulletin No. 11. Second
Series of the Experimental Farm's
Branch of the Dominion Department of
Agriculture. It also forms Entomological Bulletin Number 6 of the division of
Entomology. It may be obtained free
on application to the Publications Branch
Department of Agriculture, Ottawa.
The laws and regulations of the Dominion Government and of the Governments
of those provinces having Btich legislation, namely, British Columbia, Nova
Scotia, Ontario and Prince Edward Island are given. A full explanation of
the regulations which must he observed
by those importing nursery stock, which
comprises trees, shrubs, plants, vines,
etc. into Canada and the provinces mentioned, is given.
This bulletin is well worth reading,
even by those who do not intend to import plants, and will afford the reader
an excellent idea of the strict supervision and care that is being exercised to
prevent the introduction of further pests
into Canada. More than half the serious pests of Canada are not native to
the country but have been introduced or
migrated hither. The object of this
legislation iB to prevent the further introduction and spreading and the benefit
which is resulting from the careful inspection, and treatment when necessary
of imported plants is incalculable and is
the means of saving the country enormous losses.

In growing smaller the Tribune hopes to grow better, like maple
syrup when it is boiled down, or like some well known liquids when
tbey are distilled. It is just getting down to lighting weight; nothing
is cut off except what is. superfluous. Country weeklies often carry
much valuless matter and spread their news out by the use of large
type, all to gratify the foolish demand for a big pnpor. In its reduced
form the Tribune will not be quite so valuable for starting fires with,
bnt in other respects it will be as good as ever, And tbe cold weather
is about over for this winter nuyway. Before tlie thermometer gets below zero again we may have returned to the eight page sine.
People who are not in the business have little knowledge of the
conditions under which the industry is carried on, Many would be
surprised to learn wbat. a small margin of profit there is on tbe product, or that certain grades of lumber are manufactured at a loss that
-.�����*i*t be made good by the sale of the high class lines. Frequently u
mar'*buys for his building lumber thnt cost the manufacturer half as
much again ns the consumer pays for it. When a mill abuts down it us-
nallv means that for that particular mill the cost of getting logs ont
and cutting them iB ns much as or more than what can be got for the
product on the market.
It is plain, therefore, that n seemingly slight change in any one
condition affecting the industry may make the difference between pro-
tit and loss for many mills. The partial demoralizing of the market by
the dumping nf the lower grades of American lumber on the prairie
provinces has had the result of making the cut of the interior mills
much lesB during the past year than it was for tho year previous. An
increase of the royalty on timber from fifty dents to a dollar per thousand is almost sure to close some of the mills.
This is more serious for the interior than for tbe coast mills. The
stnmpage value here is not so great as it 1b on the coast for the timber
is not so sound nor so heavy. That fact should warrant some variation
in the timber regulations in favor of the areas east of the Const Range,
The lumber industry is and must be one of tbe mainstays of the
prosperity of British Columbia. At present it is carrying heavy burdens and suffers from a lack of the protection tbat is granted to other
manufacturing industries in the Dominion. If relief does not come or
if additional taxes make the load still heavier it will be difficult to s��-
cure tbe necessary capital and credit to keep the industry alive nt many
points in the interior v* here it now flourishes.
For European pence nothing is more essential than the putting of
an end to the mutual suspicions nf Greal Britain and Germany, which
have burdened both countries with the tremendous cost of an enormous and needless navy. Hritian determined to maintain its navy
equal in strength to any twp other navies, while Germany, which claimed the most powerful army in Europe, scorned to plan also a navy equal
to that of Great Britain. *    i
Great Britain has for years been trying to persuade Germany to
nn understanding as to a limit,of expansion, bnt nothing has, until
this last, week, come of it. A year ago Winston Churchill, First Lord
nf the Admiralty, proposed tbat an agreement should be made by which
the two navies sl.onld he kept at tbe ratio,of sixteen for Great Britain
to ten for Germanv'; and now the indications are that Germany will
accept the agreement. Admiral yon Tirpitz, the Naval Secretary, had
a meeting last week with tbe budget committee of the Reichstag, discussing with great secrecy the naval estimates, and the semi-official
report represents bim as saying that n " sensible agreement" as to the
respective strength of the two navies was "something to be welcomed."
On the next day he referred directly to Winston Churchill's proposal
of the ratio of sixteen to ten. nnd said, ns reported, that from the German standpoint there need be no misgivings as to the maintenance of
snch.a standard between the two conn tries.
. German Bnd English jonrnnls receive this as nearly equivalent to
a definite agreement aud hail it with great satisfaction. Possibly a de
cision on the part of Germany to accept the agreement may come from
the fact that, she has no colonies that can support her navy as has
Great Britain,. Canada and Australia and South Africa are bound to
grow rapidly in strength, and their decision to build dreadnoughts of
their own will bring, in case of war, additional strength to Great Britain
with which Germany, with her expensive army, could not compete. If
this intimation from Germany proves true it will be another great occasion for credit to Mr. ABqnith's Cabinet.���The Independent.

It is with regret we hear of the departure from Chue of Edward Jolliffe.
He wu well known in this community,
was respected by all who knew him and
loved by several.
With the wind blowing down river for
the past week the ice is now unsafe for
crossing with loaded sleighs.. This is
the time of year when a bridge would
be of great value to the ranchers on
the north side of the river and may our
prayers soon be answered.
In the last issue we stated that Mr.
R. H. Brett was receiving a visit from
his brother of Regina, Sask., but we
regret to say that the statement wu
an error. Mr. Brett wu to have arrived on the evening train from Vaji_oaV"
eVon Wednfisitey ,af. lut week'"but u
sickness had occurred in his family in
the east he wu not able to stop off u
he had planned.
A serious accident wu narrowly a-
verted on Friday last when a team owned by Marscelle Dellenie, which wu
standing in front of Mrs. J. T. Hutch-
eson.s store made.a break for freedom
and ran across the railroad just u the
noon pusenger train wu coming a-
long. The engineer stopped the train
but not before the engine had struck
the horses and thrown them into the
ditch, cutting them about the head and
inflicting several other flesh wounds.
Although the latest reports Bey the horses suffered no serious injury, it was a
narrow escape and we congratulate Mr.
Delleuie on the accident resulting in so
little damage.
With the lateness of nearly all af the
west bound trains great inconvenience
is felt by the travelling public who
sometimes h-ivr to sit for hours in the
depot wnittng for a train that does not
show up. Perhaps we are selfish humans down this way but the popular o-
plnion is that if the C. P. R. can't run
trains on time it should give us a station agent to eas'j tho suspense and let
us know how long we have to wait.
We'd like the earth with a fence around
it but would be sa**i��Med with a station
agent with a depot around him. As
perseverance is supposed to win we'll
not quit kicking till we get what we
want, even if kicking doesn't agree
with us.
