His Honor Judge Howay this
morning, when he dismissed the suit
of Mr. .John R. Duncan, of the Vulcan Iron Works, against tbe School
Hoard, tlu City and Q. A. Browning.
Mr. Duncan sued for a Hen on the
boilers of the Duke of Connaught
High School, covering a num of $4,-
040. His Honor dismissed the suit
us againBt the School Hoard and the
city on tho ground that there was
only one .vay to realize on a lien,
that being by sale of tbe property,
ami tbat under thc Lien Act school
board and municipal property were
exempt from mich sale. Tbe city and
school board are thus relieved from
further suit.
It appears that (J. A, Drowning, a
Vancouver man, the suit against
whom was continued, secured the contract for tbe huating of the Duke of
Connaught High School and sublet
the contract for tbe boilers to the
Vulcan Iron Works. He has not yet
paid for tbe boilers,  hence the suit.
The school hoard has on hand an
amount of the contract money that
would cover thc cost of the boilers,
but there are other creditors of

Wilmer Welcomes R. R.
Bruce and his Bride
lnvermere, B. C, May 17.—Wednesday was signalized by tbe homecoming from the old country and
from their bridal tour of Robert
Randolph Bruce, C. E., P. R. O. 8.
and his bride, Lady Elizabeth Bruce,
to the groom's liome in Wilmer.
That place was en fete over the occasion and all the residents turned
ont to do honor to Mr. Bruce, who
in a broad sense has been the founder of that place.
From Calgary to Golden the distance was covered in one of the Canadian Pacitic railway's most up-to-
date standard cars attached to one
of its most perfect trains. At Golden a change was made to the newly
opened Kootenay Central branch of
the Canadian Pacific railway. This
line is not yet fully standardized,
even in the part which is operated
for the 42 miles on which the mixed
train runs the rate is only 10 miles
an hour. Reaching Spillimachene another change waB made to motor car
for the last 40-odd mile* of the Journey.
As the car containing the bridal
eouple swept into Wilmer it passed
by buildings decorated for tbe occasion with bunting and evergreens, under a huge Union Jack which had
been stretched across thc road, and
under an evergreen arch bearing the
banner on which wns emblazoned the
motto, "Welcome Home." Over the
home gate another arch, beautifully
decorated, had heen erected and
which had the same motto entwined
about It.   At the home gate thc par-
The City Band
The line weather is with ua. We all
know that aud so we take wbat advantage we can of it when we have
the most time at our disposal. And
what better time can we enjoy than
of a Sunday afternoon listening to
the bund. The City Council have appropriated .$(',00.01) out of the ratepayers' mousy for their support and
Jt is up to the citizens to appreciate
their generosity and the city band's
good work, given gratuitously, (or
the people's enjoyment, to put In an
appearance when the Band are playing in public as tbey do every Sun-
dny afternoon.
Vou know* tbe place tbey play; the
band stand is situated just in front
of the Provincial Government Build-
in trs. The city have given orders for
a number of seats whereon you can
make yourself comfortable—-then take
the opportunity by the forelock and
enjoy some good music.
Under tbe guidance of the bandmaster, J. Austin, tbe band has been
improving considerably of late, the
members have been unceasing in their
practices and generous in their attendance, giving their leader al! kinds
of support in his work. This should
be appreciated much more fully than
it is at present when the three potent reasons why every city should
encourage a band in their midst are:
For parades, garden parties, celebrations, demonstrations, excursions
and public entertainments, a band is
an absolute necessity. To engage
outside talent means that your money is not kept iu circulation locally
which reflects upon your prosperity
Moreover, afternoon and evening con'
certs by the local band are an enter
tainment and an influence, the value
of which cannot be overestimated
not only for tbe young people but
for all those wbo love good music
and have no opportunity of gratifying their desire.
Second—A dvertisement.
The activity of thc local band is
reported not only in local papers but
in surrounding papers and in nation
all musical magazines.
Moreover, if the band should enter a
contest at auy time the publicity
tliey would receive would, as you
know, be of a kind you cannot purchase. P. T. Barnum, the greatest
advertiser of all timeB, said, "When
you want to attract'attention, get a
hand." And there is more wisdom in
this than most people believe.
A local band exerts Btrong influence in mnny directions. It stirs local pride, arouses enthusiasm and interest, and more important, attracts
sober aud industrious workingmen to
your town. Bandsmen as a clasB
are the most steady and desirable
kind of citizens and hundreds of tbem
are flockiug to tbis country annually, all of whom locate in towns
wb«re they can become associated'
with tbe band.

The quality ot the city's milk supply, determined by samples taken
from bottlos and delivery wagons
and from inspection of the various
dairys, is occupying the attention of

been inspected nnd found to be In a
fairly good condition. Reports from

Conservative Meeting
The annual meeting of'the Conservative Association was held in the association's committee rooms, Hanson avenue,"on Tuesday evening. This
was the largest political gathering
that has been held in the city for
the past two years.
President Ira R. Manning occupied
the chair, and in opening the meeting said that as tbere were several
matters of importance to be brought
up he would flrst of,all call on our
local member to Bay a few words.
Mr. T. D. Caven in his remarks
said that be was pleased to see such
a large gathering present; it showed
the Interest of tbe people in the party. As at this meeting the election
of officers for tbe ensuing year was
to take place and several other matters of Importance he would not continue his remarks at length; but this
he felt be must ' say, that he had
heard that some friction was to take
place at this meeting due principally
to the influence of the opposition
who desired a ruption in tbe power.
He advised those present that thsy
must not be influenced by anyone.
"Vote as your judgment guides you.
I should like to be fair and square
and above board with everything and
In 'his further remarks he went on
to say that the appropriations for
roads, trails, bridges, etc., this year
was small but be fcilleved that there
was yet enough to make a good
showing in the district. The location of the proposed bridge at Bull
River bad been delayed owing to
some engineering difficulties but he
was glad 'to announce that they had
been overcome and the place decided
on for its erection. It was the intention of the Government to build
good roads all over the district, especially in those sections that have
been taken up by pre-emptors. The
present need of transportation facilities would be overcome throughout
the province considerably by the completion of the railways under construction. Some of the best lands
in the province, especially in the
Bulkley, Nechaco and Kootenay Valleys, which have been settled upon,
would receive flie necessary transportation, thus improving the agricultural possibilities of the province. It
was the intention of the government
to foster and assist the improvement
of the landB recently opened up to all
pre-emptors throughout the length
and breadth of the province.
Secretary Jas. Arnold then read
the minutes of the last regular meeting and subsequent executive meet
ings, which upon motion was adopted as read.
The Constitution and Bylaws of the
Central and Local associations were
read and after discussion and a slight
alteration being made in their contents, they were adopted.
The result of the election of officers was as follows-:
Hon. President—Sir Richard McBride.
Hon. Vics-presldent—Thos. Caven,
M. P. P.
President—A. J. Balment.
Vice-president—Geo. Stevenson.

To the Electors of the Municipality
In another column will be found i
notice calling for the votes of the
electors of the Municipality of the
('ity of Oantfrook on By-law No. 138
being a by-law authorizing the borrowing upon tbe credit of thv* water
revenue antl charges a sum nf $110,-
The council huve thought it ndviB-
nble to briefly explain to you their
reasons for advising the expenditure
of this Bum:
The maintenance charges from Octoher, WOS, to November. 1913.
amounted to J28.40s.16, which charges
have heen gradually increasing, and
last year reached thc very large sum
of .f8,475.00. Of tbat Bum $1800 was
expended in repairs to tbe dam.
The council hsve called into consultation Mr. A. _. McOulloch, C. B„ of
Nelson, B. 0„ nntl he reports with
reference to the dnm and reservoir as
follows: "Vour present storage reservoir Is inadequate, the dam Is unsafe and lea'is badly. This dam is
built of timber crib covered with
oarth, the timbers of which are badly rotted, and it is not advisable to
utilize this dam in any improvements
ma<1". Instead I recommend the construction of a new dam at a point
7S0 feet above the present dam. on
the city's own property."
Mr. McOulloch proposes to build a
new dam at an elevation of 3222.5,
being 16 feet nbove the creek bed at
thc site. It being also 16 feet nbove
the water level In thc present reservoir.
With the water elevation In thn reservoir at 3217.5 thc storage will he
2,000,000 gallons, and thc estimated
coBt of the dam would he in the
neighborhood of $0000.
It la proposed to replace the entire
syBtem, at preeent composed of wood
stave plpee, with Bteel pipes, and
apart from the reduction In the maintenance charge which, aB referred to
before, lust, yenr amounted to .8,77
It Ib estimated that It this system
Ib installed the saving would bo in
the neighborhood of $110011 annually.
The city will obtain a Biifer nnd
more permanent supply of water in
cane of lire, and wlll give nn Incn

Premier Justifies Railway Extension
In the course of a conversation
yesterday, Sir Richard McBride took
occasion to refer to the criticism
that has beeu directed against bis
railway policy.   He Baid;
"I have nothing to apologise for
because 1 inaugurated my railway
policy wben I did, and I am very
well content to wait for tbe justification, which time, and not a very
long time, will bring about. That
policy Inw eventuated In the construction of the Canadian Northern
Pacific, the Pacific (ireat Eastern and
the Kettle lliver Valley Hallway.
Not very long ago we all were eager
to see the last named road built, It
is a great and valuable enterprise,
which will mean eveu more for tbe
Province than we used to think at
the time it. occupied the centre of the
stage, but the fact that it is rarely
spoken of, although its construction
will bring with it the completion of
the V. V. & E, Railway, shows how
much there bas been in the way of
railway development to occupy the
attention of the peopl.' of this Province,
"My critics have said tbat I was in
too great a burry. I would like
them to tell me what would have
happened if I had waited until a financial stringency set in before launching these entfrprises. Conditions under which C. P, R. stock dropped 100
points would hardly have been favorable to the inauguration of projects involving the construction of
nearly 2,000 miles of railway. But
because we went ahead when we did,
the enterprises have been carried
along, they have tided the country
over a period of world-wide depression, nnd havo reached a stage when
their early completion is certain.
"Not many persons realize that
the construction of tbe Canadian
Northern Pacitic, Pacific Great Eastern ami Kettle River Roads has already led to the outlay in this Province of fully $.r>0,000,000 within thirty-six  mouths, and their completion
will     ilivolvo      -many    millions      mor*.
And yet, do you stop to "think that
the great work of developing this
Province has only fairly begun? What
we need as a people is courage and
faith, for WO have a Province that
will richly repay all we may expend
upon opening it up to settlement and
industry and in providing transportation facilities whereby commerce
can be brought to our seaports.
".lust one thing more 1 would like
to add, namely that in my judgment, when the Province invites the
eatment of capital in the con
structlon of railways, it ought to be
willing to show its own faith in the
projects which it authorizes. I consider it to, be a moral obligation
resting upon the Government of a
new country to testify Its .faith iu
the land, whose affairs it is administering. Criticism is to be expected
snd indeed is to he welcomed. I make
no objection to having the hottest
tire directed against me and my policies, because I know that I and my
colleagues, and our supporters in the
House, who have stood so nobly by
me, will come out of it, aB I know
the Canadian Northern will come out
of the fierce attacks made upon it,
that is with new credit, and in the
end be in a stronger position than
C.P.R. wants Men
A railway scout is the lateBt innovation in modern railway thought to
be adopted by the Canadian Pacitic
railway company.
L'nder tbe present day industrial
money and men, proper effective organization is essential to success.
The conditions with the large combines of ideal organization is one in
which every man is given an equal
opportunity to forge to tbe front,
and iu which men who reach the
front will be those who are most
worthy and In every way best fitted.
The Inrgest organization in thu
west today is the Canadian pacific
railway employing something like
forty thousand Officers and employees wesl of Lake Superior. The forces are organized somewhat after
tbe principle of the larger armies,
small units of men having an offlcor
over them, a number nf those group
od under other officers and ao on,
until  It reaches the top,
Pour toon Districts.
WeHt or Lake flupoi'lor for instance
the Onn ad Inn Pacific road is divided
Into fourteen districts, each in
charge of a superintendent, These
districts are then grouped Into divisions over which Is placed a general
superintendent, four nf whom have
Wiiti|/e of Hue., west  of Lake Huper
inr, their territory corresponding to
the lines of the provinces. Under
the superintendents there are rond-
mastere who have charge of about
une hundred and tlfty miles of line,
Under these road masters are foremen having charge of sections running from four to eight miles. The
superintendents have under them
bridge and building masters for
looking after bridges and buildings
ub well as resident engineers, train
masters, master mechanics and
train despatches, etc.
It unfortunately happens, as it always dods happen in large organisations, that many deserving employees remain stationary instead of advancing in the service, nn account of
tbeir environment or owing to not
coming under the purview of those
'who recommend men for promotion,
With a view to bringing the manage-
'■ment in as close personal touch us
possible with all men employed on
this vast transportation system, a
new arrangement has just been inaugurated by thoBP conducting the
company's business. Under this system, the officers will be required to
make a report twice a year, in June
and December, on the service rendered by every officer and employee linger his immediate jurisdiction. In
this report an account will be givon
of an employee's disposition, attention to business, loyalty, zeal and
particularly of the tactful and courteous manner with which he deals
with the patrons of the company.
Realizing that fairness and courtesy
are one of the greatest assets in the
success of any compnny greater stress
will he laid on the degree in which
that qualification is possessed,
No "Knocking,"
tt has been made a rule, however,
that should an officer tind it necessary to make an adverse comment
on thc services or t nullifications of
an employee, that employee must be
called in, shown the report, and instructed to initial it wtth any comment he may wish to make. Tbis
report will go ultimately to the vice-
president. Unfortunately human nature is' not perfect and these means
n*b iirini'. adopted lo ptevvni tue
possibility of a man being "knocked" without his knowledge.
In addition to these reports a gentleman who is a good judga of human nature, of kindly disposition,
whose name has not been divulged to
the staff, has been elected who will
travel over tbe road as a passenger
and in that capacity or ns a shipper or consign M' will come in contact with the various employees antl
bis instructions are to look for the
good points iu employees and so
draw attention to nnd Bend in the
names of any of the staff whose courtesy, zeal, loyalty, ambition and
knowledge marks them out as above
the ordinary and likely material for
Looking Por Men.
In any large concern today one of
t.ho chip.i snd nnsslhly the principal
concern of those iu charge in finding
suitable men for the opeuiugB which
are continually occurring and it is
thought hy tbe vice-president of the
Canadian Pacific railway that hy
inaugurating such a system it would
prevent overlooking of deserving
men and be a means of bringing to
notice men who are for and deserving better positions.
There is probably no service in the
world with the chsnees of promotion
and advancement to men of the rieht
type greater than the railway service but the trouble is to lind these
men, j and then bring out the best
that is in them. The sending of a
man over the road to look out for
material is something like the system adopted by all the major baseball dims who send out scouts over
the road to visit the games of the
different baseball leagues for no other u>ason than to pick out mon who
will be their first class players later
on.--Miner and News.

Forest Brand,
Lands Department,
To the Editor:
Dear Sir,—For your information t
am sending under separate cover a
copy of a small picture entitled
"Putting out the Camp Fire," a
clock poster, snd a pocket whetstone with an inscription requesting
care in regard to fire, all of wblch
form a part of the campaign of the
Forest Branch for the prevention of
forest fires.
The pictures, while being distribut-
(1 to country nanks. hotels, stores,
etc., throughout the province, are designed chiefly for distribution to the
school children. Tbey are being sent
in bulk to the superintendents or
teachers, and thc latter requested before distributing the pictures to the
pupils to give a short talk about the
relation of the forests to the prosperity of the Province, the life history of n forest emphasising the
great length of time required, and
th> way it is threatened from youth
old nge by fire, and. finally, tM.
necessity on the part of every one to
be cnreful that they do not through
carelessness set a forest fire which
may destroy homes and property, as
well ns valuable forests.
The original of the picture is by a
noted artlnt, and is entitled "A
Friend of the Forest."
The clock posters, it Is felt, pre-
Bent the importance of fire prevention In a manner which will reach
every reader. They are to be posted In forest roads and trail* throughout the Province.
The whetstones are designed chiefly
for distribution to persons, such as
loggers, settlers, prospectors, trappers nnd surveyors, who live aud
work in the forests, and who more
than any one else can be of assist
i.nr- in preventing forest, fires.
Tbe   newspapers   throughout    lbo
province have been  very  generous in
their   support of the efforts   of   the
Forest Branch to successfully   reduce
the    annual damage by forest   fires,
aud I am sure you will be interested
In these forms of publicity.

In the competitions arranged by
the Department of Agriculture for
the boys of our schools, good work
will eventually accrue from their efforts. Not only will this mode of
education improve theis knowledge of
nature and gardening hut will materially assist in inculcating within
them a spirit of industry and respect,
for the things natural which will in
after life stand them good; it will
also learn them to respect spare
ground around their homes -in such a
way that the experience obtained will
forever have its lasting influence.
The scheme is being taken up very
enthusiastically by the boys, tbey

Court of Revision
"A verdict of accidental death in
the case of little .lolm Varley was
returned at the coroner's inquest, a
recommendation being added that the
police pay greater attention to the
reports of loaf children. The child,
only two and a half years of age,
went to sleep with his head pt) the
rail." This incident occurred at Re-
gina, Husk., and reported in Monday's Ni hon Dally News. This, incident brliiga home very forcibly the
dangers to which the children of
Cranbrook are exposed. Tbe rreek
running along I'M ward Street and
which crosses over and runs down
Garden Avenue and round by the
school is a favorite place for the
children to play on its banks. Thc
dangers to which they arc exposed
by so doing cannot be minimised in
the Bmallest degree. This week they
hnve beeu clearing out the section at
the Enst end of Hnker street and
among the refuse cleaned was found
a dead dog and chickens--and thc
stench from these is what the little
children nre inhaling all the time. In
one part of the city this sume creek
is known as "dend dog creek." It
appears to he high time that Bomc-
thing should be done to nflord better protection of its banks. We
would suggest if there is any mor'

with advantage. At the same time
it would Increase th-' value "f property adjoining and he an untold

Nesbit, J. E. Kennedy, Oliver Brla
tow, A. B. Smith and T. S. Gill represented Liberal interests, and Messrs. A. J. Balment, T. Caven and J.
A. Macdonald the Conservative interests.
Some discussion took place between
the representatives of the parties
jiresent, Mr. Balment claiming that
railway men, lumbermen and miners
have a perfect right to claim residence in Cranbrook, even under the
existing conditions tbat a man was
compelled to solicit employment in
other ridings, and were registered in
the Cranbrook riding. During tbe summer months these men move about
from place to place, returning toj
Cranbrook for the winter during such
time as woi'i is shut down, and
therefore were entitled to call Oranbrook tbeir home. During the consideration of the objections there
was some lively cross-tiring between

names of railway men who were
working nt vnrious points along the
Crow line, but who spend their time
in Cranbrook when not actively engaged at their occupation. The tight,
put up by Messrs. Balment, Caven
and Macdonald saved a number of
these the right to vote in thiB district.
Of the total list of objections, 180
were struck off; 95 were retained, Ten
were reported as being dead, but ns
one name, Frank Anderson, whose
name had been reported as being

Raising the Price
Enormous    Increase    in    Production

There is n general tendency on the

The enormous increase in tbe cost
of production during the past ten
years is responsible for the advance
and the two leading papers ot Winnipeg are tbo latest to notify thoir
readers that they must pay more, in
future for their papers, Instead ot
one cent per day the price will be
ten days per week. Othfcr papers
have already put tbe increased rates
into  operation.

Department   for mouth ending April
30th, wm.
Btreets and Lanes.
Work was started ou Tuesday morning April 21st, in Kast Garden lane,
behind Mr. Hanto's house. It was
accessary to move a large amount ot
dirt here which was partly used for
till iu tho same lane in Block si; and
balance mado till in Kdward Street
by Block 42. A culvert was put in
at the end of this lane at Louis
Street and  Oarden  Avenue.
Martin Avenue lane was graded and
rocks hauled off, as also were East
Fenwick lane, Blocks 24 and 41, East
Hanson lane Block 27 and East Dur-
ick lane Block 28. East Armstrong
lnne in Block 2C was graded and
considerable cut made, spoil being
used for fill on Edward street.
Work was started on Edward street
by the Catholic Rectory to cut down
hump to grade, spoil being used to
fill large dip in the roadway by the
Quain property and bring a portion
of Edward street to grade.
Bridges at Bakor street, Armstrong
avenue and Norbury avenue were repaired as required, it being necessary to attend to the Armstrong
avenue bridge on the night of Sunday,  April 12th.
Pill was made on Kootenay street
with cinders instead of hauling same
to nuisance ground. There was no
expense to the city in connection
with this beyond levelling cinders
and cutting brush. Stones were
picked up on Cranbrook street and
Kootenay street by school and used
for fill on Angus Btreet by Powell's
cleaning shop.

An experimental farm has long been
wished for by thc citizens of Cranbrook we now have one in operation
and with a little judicious encouragement much mny grow from it.
Mr. Dexter, principal of the Public
School, has allowed the pupils to
take up the work and the school
trustees are so far interested that
not only were they willing to allow
thc use of their own private lots this
year, If need he, but they arc about
to clear and break a few acres
around the South Ward School so as
to have a fine piece of garden ground
In readiness for 1915. No child can
put in and care for a crop under the
conditions set forth by the Agricultural Department and not have re
ceived quite an insight into tbe life
study of the potato but also a real
up-to-date training in the business
end of farming as illustrated in tbe
balance sheet for the year. Ab a city,
Cranbrook stands to benefit by the
advertisement gained when each ol
the two score pupils has an exhibit
of 20 lhe. of potatoes at the Victoria
The committee in charge of the
work consists of: A. D. Smith, president Farmers' Institute; Harry
White, chairman School Trustees; F.
Dexter, principal Public School; B.
Palmer, farmer; R. H. McPhee, ex-
secretary School Board; Alb. H.
Webb, secretary Farmers' Institute.
The following few pointers may be
taken profitably by all potato growers. They are taken from Bulletin
No. 57 issued by the Department of
Agriculture, Victoria, and are written by men of experience:
Orado tho potatoes at time of digging, if possible. Discnrd all potatoes that aro diseased, damaged, or
that are 2 inches or less in diameter.
(1). All Boll does not contain
enough plant-food to grow a paying
crop of potatoes.
(2.) The cost of labor is the same,
whether the soil is rich or poor.
(3.) Potatoes, like nnimnls, must
huve plenty of food and wnter.
(4.) Oood tubers from good hills
produce hotter rosults as seed than
tubers chosen nt random.
(5.) Bn honest. Oct rid of tho
idea that something may he hnd for
nothing. It tnken labor, manure,
good seed, and thought to prnduco n
good cropn.
(6.) Don't ho nbovo taking advice
from others, especially from elderly
people. Think matters over, and
practise what you bellovo to he profitable.
(7.) Put honest goods on tho market. Co-operato fnr tho good of
your community. Bosld.'s being right

It has been estimated that in converting logs into finished'lumber and
lumber products, the waste amounts
to over 50 per cent of the bulk of
all trees cut for lumber. This is
equivalent to nn annual loss of from
$12 to $15 for every mnn, woman and
child in the country. At present it
is impracticable from a financial
standpoint to reduce this waste as
there is no market for the tree tops,
culls and weed-trees left in lumbering: operations, and only a very limited one for the bark, slabs, sawdust, edgings and trimmings of milling operations.
The Department of the Interior is
recruiting the staff of its Forest Products Laboratories, recently established in connection with the Forestry Branch, with skilled mechanical
and chemical engineers and by constant experimentation it is hoped to
find a commercial use for these products.
Already a *igood start has been
made. The Laboratories, which are
operated in connection with McGill
University, contain the most complete equipment ou the continent foi
making timber tests. It is planned
to submit each Canadian wood to
over a thousand tests In order to establish as complete tables of the mechanical properties of these woods as
now exist for steel and concrete.
When these tests are published, as accurate information as can be obtained will be at hand with regard to
such questions, for instance, as to
how great a weight n wooden column
of n particular Apecics will stand
without risk of breaking, how great
a burden can be carried by a beam
of a certain species of wood or given
dimensions, and other similar questions.
Timber has often been shunned ns
a structural material because no reliable figures regarding its strength
were available, und when complete
tests have been mado It is regarded
as certain thnt n demand will bc
created for some of Canada's tree
species which are now left, in the
woods as  valueless,
The Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, of
which these laboratories are ono development, has recently issued a circular describing the vnrious lines of
investigation to be followed nt these
laboratories. Not the least Important will be to develop chemical methods for utilizing minor wood
wastes am) another circular written
by the engineer in charge of this
work deals with the general aspects
of tbe subject. A large percentage of
the small sized waste wood can be
utilized by the process known hh "destructive distillation," but the ma-
hlnery employed in this prOGOBS is
not very efficient. The manufacture
of ethyl alcohol and producer gas
from sawdust has already been proved feasible, and the securing as Superintendent of the Laboratories of
John H. Mates, It. A., H. Mr., one of
tliu foremost authorities on wood-
pulp manufacture In America, ensures the development of this Branch
of Wood Utilization.

The   Preservation
of Eggs
By Frank T. Shutt, M. A.
Dominion Chemist
Experiments in egg preservation
have been carried on by tho Division
of Chemistry during the past fifteen
years, in order to obtain information for our numerous correspondents
ab to the best preservative for use in
the home. In this long period a large
numbor of fluids and preparations advertised ns egg preservatives huve
beeu put under trial. These, for the'
most part, have proved utter fuil-
uras, and, looking back over our records, we cannot Hnd oue of these
numerous nostrums that can be un-
hesitatingly recommended.
The two best, media are Iiim. water and a Solution of water glass (80-
dlum silicate) and these two have
been tested side by side, yenr after
year, with the same result—that
lime water has shown itself the more
effective preservative.- Not Infrequently eggs have been kept In this
medium, quite sound and fit (or
cooking purposes, for r.iore thnn a
year. The tbree essentials to sue

This recently Introduced preparation for the preservation of nggs Is

states. To furnish information to
correspondents regarding   its nature
and merits we, last summer, submitted it to analysis and at th.'
same time made a practical trial
With it in the keeping of eggs.
It is put up in thc furm of small
cakes (weighing about 3 ounces
each), of a light yellowish tinge,
hnrd and brittle, breaking with n
somewhat glassy or conchoidal fracture. Ench cane, it is stated, yields
sutiicient preservative fluid for loo
eggs. It (s described in the circular

it will preserve eggs for nine months

An experiment was carried on concurrently with tho above, using lime

The Liberal chickens are now coming home to roost, and the unfair
attacks made on Colonel Hughes are
now being finally refuted.
The importance of the cadet movement and its efficiency in building up
the mentality and morality of the
Canadian youth was also dwelt upon
by Colonel Hughes. Colonel Hughes
has made of the cadet movement
something real, tangible and useful,
A toy has been transformed into a
great moral idea. Colonel Hughes
said, in bis speech referring to the
cadet work of his department:
"These cadet corps were organized
on a small scale; they were not systematized. We are now endeavouring to systematize tbem throughout
the length and breadth of tbe country. During the last year we have
drilled, equipped and inspected 44,-
680 cadetB, of whom it Is estimated
tbat upwards of 30,000 are sixteen
yenrs of age and upwards. When I
point out that many of the men who
fought in the ranks at Alma, especially in the Welsh regiments who
fought at Waterloo, who fought dur
ing thc American war, were sixteen
years of ago and upwards—Wolfe
himself was only sixteen when be entered the army—It will be seen that
hoys of sixteen yeara of age and up- J
wards make very good soldiers, and
it will be realized what an nsset
theae cadets are for the defence of
the Dominion of Canada, Any commercial traveller In Canada will tell
pretty accurately what towns hnve
eadet Corps by the manhood, straight
forward, cleanly bearing of the
young boyB and young girls iu those
towns. 1 have no hesitation in say
Ing that I aspire to raise tbe character of these boys and girls throughout this Dominion.
The Importance ol having teachers
(rained ami the work being accomplished in that, direction was also
dwelt upon by the Minister of Mill-
tin, who stated:—
"lu addition to this, we hnve
trained 12,ono teachers during the
Inst year or two. Our object in
training these teachers is that they
mny take their classes and train
thom in squad drill. I have seen 1,-
H00 children of live yeara and upwards come out of a school and
maroh around, forming two deep and
four deep, and scarcely a child out
of step. These have all been trained
by lady teachers. We believe in
training people when thoy are young
becnuse no man can become a good
baseball player or cricket player unless he learns the game when, he is a
boy. When he is grown up he haB
not the activity and suppleness of
tbe muscles necessary for the development of perfection in the science.
We have a large number of trained
teachers in every large centre in Canada today; they train tbe teachers in
the schools, who in turn train the
children, and thus the country is
saved a great deal of expense in not
having to send instructors to these
places. Since I have assumed office
17,000 officers and teachers in Canada have been given cadet certificates. It is unnecessary for me to
go into the details. Our instructional staff now numbers 251 persons."
The above figures show tbat the
country is getting value for its money. All this talk by the Opposition
of extravagance and war preparations is mere chaff, and done to
frighten the people. Colonel Hughes
is doing a noble work for tbe country, and those who watch results
know it. He speaks out what he
thinks and defends a policy which
he believes is good for the country.
"I have never been an advocate of
a permanent or standing army except
for instructional purposes." TheBe
words did not come from the mouth
of a   critical Liberal, but from Col.
tbo Hon. Ham Hughes, Minister of
Militia aad Defence, in bis speech on
the Militia Estimates. He procoudea
to tell a tale of work well uonj in
the active militia, proving that he
hns justly earned the title oi "*he
Soldiers'  Minister."
Speaking of the active militia, he
"Coming now tn the active militia,
1 may say tbat the active militia is
divided into two classes, tho permanent corps and the non-permanent, the
permanent corps consisting of 3.02L
oUlcers and men and the non-permnn-
Ctit force constating of 74,600 officers
and men. We hear a great deal
about militarism in Canada. I bave
never been an advocate of a permanent or standing army except for insl met lona I purposes. I am reducing
the permanent force. I inherited, in
the permanent force, an army service
corps which was in size 2fi per cent.
of the army service corps that tbe
wbole British army has. I am reducing thnt. I am putting men in
other employment, and I bave made
up my mind that I will not bave a
large number of men in our army service corps about the country.
"The danger to the country is from
the permanent end of ttie military
forces, uot the non-permanent end.
In the permanent service men are
taken out of continuous employment,
they are taken from the other services of the country and they become
a special and privileged class, while
the great majority of the people arc
untrained. Under theei> circumstances people are l.ice men standing
around the edge of a football field
—mere rooters watching the regulars
gn by. With a permanent army, in a
time of crisis in the nation's history,
there is danger, unless the ofllcers
arc constitutionally trained, of the
officers and men obeying the mandate
of some oligarchic government, autocratic Upper House, or Divine right
"It is the right of every citizen to
demand to be trained, and it is the
right of every government to meet
the citizens, in so far as possible, in
their demand to be trained. If you
bave trained the manhood of the nation, you need nevsr be afraid of any
coup d'etat on tbe part af any standing army."
Thb above are sentiments which
every democratic Canadian will subscribe to. Colonel Hughes has entered upon thc tusk of popularizing
the militia at the lowest cost. He iB
succeeding, notwithstanding his critics. He is imbued with the Idea of
a volunteer force ready to defend its
homeland, and is not in favor of a
regularly paid standing army composed of thousands of men withdrawn from the rankB of labor in a
country where they are most needed.

Landing to Be Refused.
Orders have been sent to the immigration authorities at Victoria not
to allow the Hindus to land and to
deport them from British Columbia.
The Government believes it is acting
on l.'gnl and constitutional ground,
and the Immigration authorities, before taking action, consulted witb
tbo Justice Department.
The Immigration officiate believe
that they can stop the entry of the
Hindus on two grounds. They will

Far Reaching Benefits
AniongHt the mnny progressive
measures which huve been introduced
by the Oovernment during this session is one of pnrticulnr interest to
Western homesteaders. The Government hns amended tbe Dominion
Lands Act so as to remove1 any possibility of hardship on the Western
settler and lighten the burden on thc
newcomer in the West.
These changes have been advocated
for years, but it bas been left for
Hon. Dr. Roche, Minister of Interior,
to put into force theBe boons for the
Western homesteader, so long refused
by the Laurier Oovernment.
For a long time there have been
complaints that a person holding a
homestead and pre-emption often
found himself in rather an embaras-
sing poBitian financially before securing bis patent for the pre-emption
owing to the onerous rules of the Department of Interior. By the amendments a settlor is permitted to earn
title to his pre-emption by residing
thrae years on either the pre-emption
or the homestead after earning title
to his homestead, and.in tbis way he
can secure his patent for his pre-emption six years from the date of entry, instead of nine, as formerly,
In i the case of a person who earned
title to his homestead and wishes to
earn title to bis pre-emption at the
curlioat possible date thereafter, payment for thc pre-emption in full may
be made immediately after title to
tbe homestead is earned—provided
tbat he has completed the duties in
connection with his pre-emption—
tbat is, aB soon as patent' for the
homestead issues it the settler has
completed bis cultivation and otber
duties, aud his pre-emption entry is
in good standing, he may earn title
to his pre-emption by paying in full
for the same without performing any
further residence duties.
The Act as it now stands requires
that'interest shall be paid on the unpaid principal in connection with the
pre-emption from the date of the preemption entry. This provision was
exceedingly unfair to the Western
settler, and tiie new amendments
provide that no interest shall be
charged In connection with the preemption except on Buch payments on
account of thc pre-emption which
may be in default—that is, no interest shull be chargeable until three
years have elapsed from date of entry, and if the lirst Instalment is
then paid, as required, no interest
shall he charged on that inBtalmeiit,
or any subsequent instalments, pro*
vided they are paid when due,
Tbo present- Act requires that a
settler holding a purchased home-
steml entry must erect a house,
worth nt least $300, on the purchased
homestead itself. This provision has
b.'on found to work a hardship In
mnny cases, nnd the amendment In
this respect provides thnt where a
settler lias a purchased homestead
entry within nine miles of his pal
enteil homestead, he mny reside oa
sneli patented homestead, und mny
erect the $300 house on the quarter
section upon which ho is living.
The Government has taken every
precaution to protect tbe natural resources in the West which have not
already been dissipated by the Liberals, liy the new amendments any
lnnds which are necessary lor tho
protection of nny wnter supply, inlands upon which might he used lor
the development and working of such
water power, are to bo withdrawn
from disposition by hoincstcail, purchased homestead, or pre oinptloii entry. Tliey ciiii only be loosed under
regulations made by the governor-ln-
rollliell. Title to till! nlll'fare rights
of ull milling lamia Ih also to lie re-
talnoil by the crown, nml not disposed ol oxcopt by lease.
Important   slops lmvo been   taken
both I colling* mixed tanning ami
to relieve Hie settler whine the nature ol tlio soil is such that It Is illf-
llciill. to perform lhe roq|Utroi1 riilHvii-
1 inn duties, The aiiieniliiieiils In tbo
Act permit, settlors holding entry tor
lnnds wlileli are lound to he unsuitable lor cultivation to earn title  to
such lands by substituting stock for
the cultivation duties. This provision will permit a settler who has
entry for non-arable land to lmprov.;
bis land by the raising of Btock, and
will prove of the greatest benelit to
settlers residing in what arc known
aa thc "semi-arid diBtricts" where
it is almost impossible to cultivate
the land, but where good grass and
hay Ib grown.
The amendments are designed to
improve in every possible way condi
Hoiib for the homesteader in Western
Canada. The Government has provided for the protection of the best
interests of the bona ade settler to
the very  greatest extent.
