Governmet Sends Lumber
Commissioner to Europe
Tlie heavy orders lor lumber for the
United Kingdom placed through the
Provincial Government during tlie past
.snninii'i- .is tin- nsiilt ..1 Uie visit of
Lumber Commissioner McMillan to Kurope show whnt results can be obtained
by Government action in assisting the
lumbering industry. In order t.. follow
up tlu* advantage already gained in this
new line .1 work tli_ Hon, W. R, Ross
announced yesterday that the Provincial
Government is sending a business representative ..I the industry to Loudon.
Investigation lias already shown that
before tlie European market can be entire.i, on any scale, by our manufacturers a grcit .leal of preliminary work
must be done in explaining to buyers
tlie qualities ami methods of manufacture ol our britisli Columbia woods.
There are many misconceptions which
are very prevalent mul whicli act as a
barrier to the Introduction of our lumber
products. These can only bu overcome
by energetic personal work niuong the
buyers by a representative thoroughly
conversant with every phrase of our
lumbering industry. Again, there are
many trade requirements which are 1
designed to meet tlle case of Swedish I
and Russian lumber but which are not j
properly applicable to the very different
species of the Pacific Coast. Iu many!
such cases slight modifications of the.
customary specifications would not affect
the interests of the Old Country buyer |
in any way, wiiiie they would cheapen
production here, and so enable tlie saw
mills of this Province to quote lower
prices and secure a larger share of this
trade. Through general work of this
character the Provincial Lumber Commissioner will be of considerable assistance not only in prepraing the way for
future developemeiits but also by cooperating with the various brokers and
agents who represent the interests of
British Columbia lumber firms now doing bu.si41e.ss in the United Kingdom
markets. So active has beeu the campaign conducted by American shippers,
and so largely have they increased tlieir
representation ill Europe recently that
tlie Minister of Lands has decided that a
strong effort is necessary to counteract
this action antl protect British Columbia
Mr. J, C, Woods, the well known
lumberman, has been appointed as the
new Lumber Commissioner to the I'nited
Kingdom. Mr. Woods has long been
Intimately connected with the lumber
business of thecoast. After being manager of of the Leamy and Kyle Company,
one of the first mills at Vancouver, he
became Manager of the Moodyville sawmills, and was for many years engaged
in the cargo export trade, an experience
which is of particular value ill view of
his present mission. Mr. Woods was
subsequently owner and manager of the
firm of Woods and Spicer, shingle manufacturers. He thus brings to bis task a
thoroughly practical knowledge of all
branches of the industry whose interests
he will further in the European market.
The new Commissioners duties also include the carrying out of various arrangements made with the Ilritish authorities
in connection with lumber orders placed
through fhe Department.
Big Money In
Trapping Fur Bearers
A 13. Shubert, Inc., Chicasro,
the largest house in the world dealing exclusively in American raw
furs, in a letter to The Review says
in part as follows:���"Does the average farmer stop to consider the
thousands and even millions of dollars that are paid out every year by
the large fur houses for skins of

everyone knows, the time to trap is

seeks to kill the furbearers all summer.   This practice should be stop-1
ped, as he might as well wait until
the fur is prime  as to   kill tlie animals in the summer when t' eir fur
is almost worthless.    One peculiarity   about the   American   raw  fur
collection   during the  season 1913-
14, is the fact that over   three million muskrats as well as  thousands
ot  raccoons, skunk and  other fur-

Old Timer Found
Ln Dying Condition
John Hardy, of Coinox, an eccentric old man who was the third
oldest " old tinier" in the district,
died on Monday under particularly
distressing c rcumstances.
Some s6kliers from the wireless
station were out hunting in the
woods along the shore where he
lived, and hearing a groaning noise
investigated, when they found the
"general" John's faithful old steed
lying fast in the scrub with'the cart
overturned. They righted him and
then looked for Mr. Hardy, but
could not see him. They immediately notified John Knight and Mr.
Bourne, 'ho instituted a search
and finally found the old man in a
field about 150 feet from Mr Radford's house, for which he had apparently been making, He was
still alive and they hurried him to
the hospital, but he passed away
in a very few minutes after entering the doors, ar.d before the doctor
could get to him.
An inquest was held by Coroner
Bickle but there was no evidence
of foul play, and the verdict was
death from exposure.
He had been in Comox on Saturday afternoon and did not get
away before dark, when he decided
] to wait   until  about   ten o'clock
when it would be moonlight, to go
home.   He must have either fallen
off or got off the cart when about
half   way   home,   and   the horse
walked off   and  left him,  as the
wheel tracks showed  plainly, and
j John either got lost or became ex-
( hausted from   walking,   and   laid
i himself down to rest, and   the cold
j storm which came   up about midnight  so   benumbed  him that he
was unable to move.
Mr. Hardy was born in England
i and was  in the  South   American
I war in   1863 with   Gen.   Forresis
cavalry.   He was afterwards drafted to California, and not liking llie
I service slipped   away and  csme to
I this district about   1870,   first settling near  where   Recce's  farm is
now.   Afterwards he and  a part-
j ner took up cairns at   Pt. Holmes,
' the partner died  and as  neithtr of
j them had registered   their  claims,
I John had some difficulty in obtaining a title,  owing   to the   government having granted the E. & N.
Railway nearly aii the  land in the
district,   A couple of   years  ago,
when land  was selling  well, John
disposed of his property for   about
$7,000 and has lived on   his means
ever since.
Mr. Hardy while eccentric was
quite shrewd. He was 69 years of
age, and told some interesting old-
time stories occasionally. He had
no relatives iu this country and apparently nothing is known of his
j antecedents in the old country.

Letter To The Editor
Mr. Editor, Friends,   Neighbors
ami Fellow Citizens, lend nie your
vour ears, rub a cat's fur the
wrong way and you sure make it
spit, as witness letters in last week's
Review. Say I've never seen my
name in print .so often before so
I've wrapped 'The Review" up in
silver tissue paper and sent it
home, wont the Oover.or and the
Mater be proud of H. D. But
that reininns nie, I must explain to
them that I am not in Mr. McKeu-
eie's class, no fear, I'm in the
"Dewey Did It" class.
Quit fooling now, this is serious.
It would be a  whole  lot better for
"Orchard Residents"   if   Mr. McKenzie was in   the class   he places
nie in, in his letter, then we might
hope to   get   something   done lor
ourselves in this part of town.    The
trouble   i.s,   that   when    he, with
the other Aldermen give tlieir time
to the city without   any   financial
I recompense, to criticise at   all   is
j Invidious.    However, Mr, McKen-
, /.ie, just a word,    lf, as you   say,
I you wanted street lights  as  badly
I as the rest of us,   why  didn't  you
I make some attempt to get them for
I us ?   Miglitv   little  comes   along
1 just by waiting for it.    What about
some of those fearful holes  in   our
Orchard streets,  that want  filling
up.    An Orchard sidewalk   would
be well patronized, also a couple of
-Ore! 1 ard streets graded,  would improve appearances tremenduously,
but we don't hear or read   of   any
great effort being   made   on   vour
part to secure theni for us.    Iu fact
the only improvement I can  think
of that you have secured for "The
Orchard," after almost a   year   of
office, is a couple of loads of gravel
at Mr. Perez's corner, and its uot a
record to be proud of.    I note that
\ 011 claim that   you,   along   with
some of the Aldermen, have finallv
called "the bluff" of   the   Electric
Light    Company.    Thats    pretty
rich,   The one,   and   oulv   thing
that called "their bluff?" Mr. Mc
Kenzie, was the   petition   praying
for light, addressed to them direct
by over fifty Residents and Property Owners of the Orchard.,
"Mr. Johnston" turn me loose,
I've got no money but a good excuse. Shtire but that was a nice
spicy little paragraph, at the end of
your letter, about my not attending to business and making progress, You must really go easy
Mr. Johnston, you're treading ou
my corns, you see I have not got
into my money making stride yet,
they tell me however that it took
you a long, long time to get into
yours, so I'm just living in hopes.
By the way, you are the most
shameless prevaricator of the truth
I've come across. You did say iu
the open council meeting, exactly
what I said you did in my last letter, for proof turn up "The Review" of Nov. 4 for report on
council meeting, or ask any of the
public who were present, and dou't
try on again, in the public press,
anv more subterfuges about being
misquoted, or incorrect statements.
The word insolent appears again in
your letter of last week, but as any
adverse criticism of yourself or the
city council is invariably described
by you as insolent, no one takes
any notice of the expression from
Mr. Editor, a few words of appreciation to yourself before I close
You have allowed free u=e of your
columns on this Orchard light
question, and I wish to thank you
tor your courtesy, Orchard Rest
dents, after a good deal of trouble
have secured what they wanted,
light for the Orchard; and from
now on as far as I am concerned,
the incident is closed.
Yours truly,
H. D, Forde
