 Lumbermen    Meet    At
Lumbermen from all portions ot
East and West Kootenay will gather
at Nelson un Friday January 19 tor
the annual meeting of the Mountain
Lumber Manufacture*' aBfloakaition.
At thiB meeting tbe following resolution will be presented by A. U.
Watts, of Wattsbitrg.
"Tbat this association tenders Its
thanks for, and expresses Its high
appreciation of tht* muny efforts made
with tho view 0t obtaining justice and
protection for the lumber Industry
by thelariuus boards ol' trade in the
province during several years past,
and that we wish especially to convey our thanks to tbe president ot
the associated boards of trade and
the citizens of Nelson for their moral
support and the many courtesies extended to this association, which
have been a source ot gratification
felt by every individual member, but
so far left without official recognition.
"That, whereas at the last annual
meeting resolutions were unanimously passed condemning roclptoctty as
being Injurious to tho fruit nnd lumber Industries, that we are aware of
the fact that afterwards a few individuate who voted fur the resolutions
publicaly declared in favor of the
opposite, but that no official of this
association was ever authorized to
speak in favor of reciprocity; that
we were and are in favor of protection not only of the lumber Industry
but all others in Canada and consider \that the frdtt Industry should be
encouraged by every possible means,
and placed at least m an equal ha
sis ot exchange with American fruit.
That the encouragement and fostering of tho mining Industry in of
paramount Importance to thla province.
"It la therefore resolved that the
executive board of this association Is
hereby empowered nnd directed to
work In unison wltb the boards of
trade and tho representatives of other industries for tbe purpose of maintaining a vigorous and united campaign to educate the public ot Canada, and win their support in aid of
Justice, being aware of tbo fact that
no wrongs can be righted nor much
impression made on the authorities
without tbe support of public opln-
"That this association wishes to
call the attention of the chlof officers
of the various railway companies pur
chasing ties, timber and other articles of wood In the United States,
lor use on Canadian lines heavily
subsidized at tbe expense of Ute Ca
nadian people, that we consider such
a policy 1b not true economy, and 1b
Inimical to tbe interests of the Canadian public from where the railway
companies obtain their subsidies, and
from whom they obtain kingdoms ot
laud, timber and other concessions,
besides huge sums of money,
"That the railway companies owe
the public some consideration In return for favors granted and owe It
especially to the only unprotected industry In Canada, now languishing
and prostrated under the dumping of
foreign lumber on their unrestricted
"That all mills in the interior are
closed down and logging operations
practically suspended, and these operations usually provided the means
of subsistence to thousands of poor
homesteaders from the prairies during the winter, large numbers coming
this winter looking (or the usual
work had to walk back hundreds of
miles. The many million dollars
usually paid to the prairie provinces
for agricultural products used in the
mills and camps have gone to support a foreign country, the far reaching effect Is felt by farmers, lumbermen of all kinds and the allied trades and merchants.
"In tho production of lumber labor
Is the chief Item; therefore the workmen of Canada are hit the hardest
by the dumping of the foreign product. Next to labor the heaviest
tax on lumber is levied hy the railway companies for freight, UBera of
the foreign products pay tor the loug
haul to American and the short haul
lo Canadian railways.
"From a national standpoint those
who assist in fostering a foreign industry tn preference to the Canadian
are following principles of false economy, which cannot show compensating advantages for the Canadian
cash paid to foreigners.
"That in times of acute depression
in the lumber trade the effect of this
dumping of foreign product Is roost
keenly felt, and In tbe opinion of this
association Is worthy of tho consideration of railway companies who
are supporting foreign Industries to
the detriment of 'be people of Canada, and also to the direct injury ot
one of the moBt profitable customers,
the railway companies have, the
lumber trade.
That a copy of these resotutianr
be sent to each British Columbia
member of parliament at Ottawa, to
the president of each railway company, to each cabinet minister, and
to the presidents of the boards of
Stampede to  Gold   Fields
Intense excitement prevailed in
Mlnitoiuis last Monday when the business men 'dosed their shops and made
a rush for the gold flolda situated
about four miles southwest of here
to stake out claims.
A week or ten days ago a former
named Elliot found several nuggets
iu tbo crops of turkeys that he had
killed. This discovery was not taken seriously by the citizens at the
time. Other turkeys were killed and
with tho exception of two or three
traces of gold were found upon all
the birds.
This gold was found on a black
sand ridge which runs oast and west
through Elliots' farm and extends
from Fisher's Home 50 miles along
the old Indian trail toward Polly,
Saskatchewan, at the foot of Duck
mountain. Andrew Armstrong a
farmer living five milee west of Elliott, has alpo located a small nugget In a fowl he killed.
James H. Hunter, a thresher,
claims to have Mund R small nugget
in the nozzle of hia hose that he was
using to 611 the engine with water
out of the creek in the same locality.
Upwards of 50 claims have been stak-
od in the rush that has apparently
only begun.
A Klondike prosr^ctor waa on the
ground and claims the nnd to be the
••tehest in his experience. He examined the nuggets and pronounced
them genuine. Some black send was
washed and which also showed traces
of gold.

Boom Is thrown at Yuan Ski Kai
Peking, Jan. 10.- A bomb wan
thrown at Premier Yuan Bbt Kftl'S
carrlago this morning, Two soldiers and thu horses attached to the
carriage were killed.
Yuan Shi Kai has been warned repeatedly that an attempt would be
made against his life. Friends have
urged the premier to capitulate and
others, fearing his assassination,
urged him to take refuge in some
foreign legation. The revolutionists
have more than unco threatened
Yuan with dynamite. Thu premier
however, informed Blr John Gordon,
British minister, that he did not
fear assassination. A guard o( U5
cavalrymen escorted him, usually,
through the streets of  Peking.
In November, according to t'hiuese
reports, an attempt was made to
assassinate Yuan but this report was
never continued.
It is understood plum tor the abdication have undergone delay, pending tinai arrangements, including the
place of the court's retirement, the
guaranty of pensions and other terms
tidered by the republicans.
There has been difficulty in obtain*
Ing assurances for carrying out the
republican pledgeB. No confidence
exists in the ability of the intentions
of the republicans to observe their
It is believed eertaiu legations have
been approached by Yuan Shi Kai,
and these have telegraphed tu their
governments to ascertain whether
any measures of foreign mediation
which would result in foreign guaranties could be devised.
Tbe provinces or Shensl and Shan-
si, from which the reported massacre
of lu.000 Manchus by rebels is aow
continued, have been hotbeds of revolution for some mouths. On December 8 news was received by messenger from Sinn Fu, the capital of
Sh.-.nii, that 1,000 Manchus had been
slain in the provlnco up to that date.
A column of imperialist troops has
been operating In the district to suppress tho rebellion, but the slaying
of the Manchus has steadily continued.

Rome, Jan. IS.—The minister ol
marlns has received a report from
the commander of the Italian naval
forces on the Red Bea reporting the
notion of January 7 outside tbe bay
of Kiinfada.
In tbe belief that the Turkish gunboats had taken reluce In the canals
behind the Parson islands, the Italian commander decided to attempt a
combined operation,
In order to disguise hie Intentions
by a diversion he eent the cruisers
Calabria und Puglla to bombard the
camp at Gibraltar and sent the destroyer (iarahaldinn and others to
explore the canal behind the Faraans.
As sonn ns the Puglla and Cala
brla returned they were sent to l.o
hela, 60 miles down the coast, where
they bombarded and destroyed Fort
Mldy, In the meantime the three
Italian warships came upon eeven
Turkish gun bouts and the armed
yacht Fauvette, which they pursued.
The Turks opened fire at about
C000 yards, and a brisk firing followed. It lasted three and a halt hours
and terminated at dusk, the Turks
abandoned their ships, some ol which
they scuttled,
The following day the Italian ships
completed Ihe destruction nf the gunboats by shelling them.

between' two very
well-dressed and good-looking women. Thoy were seated
behind me In a train, and they were interested lu the
absorbing topic of gratitude—which proves that now and

you cling, and I don't know of anything more comforting
than a big shoulder on which to rest one's latest acquisition
of cluster curls. I'm thankful that I went out on Ed's
•yachting party last summer—I might not have met my
husband. Yea," and she sighed long and gratefully, "I am
thankful—all over!"
"But you are sorry for mo, aren't you?" said her friend. ,
Her voice wus the

with   thO' velvet J

Her    chin    settled

over tbe linen collar and she smiled
In  a siitlsflcd ,wny
at tho dark beauty
besldo   her.     Evidently a battle was
on,   and   I   forgot
that  I  was eaves-

culvert, 264 square feet lu area ol
cross section, about tbo area ol the
Hudson river tunnel* of the Pamnayl-
vania railroad, ettimds the entire
length of the middle aud tide wallt
and from each of these culverts there
are smaller culverts, 33 tu 44 square
feet lu area, which ottend under the
floor ot the lock and communicate
with the lock chamber through holes
in the floor. The Large culverts are
controlled at poluts uear the mitered
gates by large valves and each oi
the small culverts oitctlillug from
tbe middle wall culvert Into the twin
chambers is controlled by a efliatlri
cal valve. Tbe large culvert la the
middle wall feeds In both directlotu,
through laterals, thus peroiittiug the
passage of water from oue twla look
to another, effecting a saving of water.
To fill a lock tbe valves at the upper end are opened and the lower
valves closed. Tbe water down Irom
the upper pool through the large culverts luto ths latteral culverts and
thence through the boles In the door
into tho lock chamber To empty
a lock the valves at the upper end
are closed and tbe water flows into
the lower Lock or pool In a similar
manner. This system distributes
the water as evenly as posutble over
the entire horizontal area of the
lock and reduces the disturbance In
tbe chamber when tt is being tilled
or emptied.
Tbe average time of tilting and em-
i*tylng a lock will be about 11 minutes, without opening the valves go
suddenly as to create disturbing currents In the locks or approaches.
The time required to pass a taatel
through ail the locks la estimated at
three hours; one hour and a hall In
tbe three locks at Uatua, and about
the same time In the three locks at
tbe Pacific side. Tbe time ot passage of a vessel through the entire
canal is estimated aa ranging Irom
10 to 12 hours according bo the site
ot the ship and the rate ot weed at
which it can travel.

In any way dlecloelng detail* of the
question of railway development, declared that wben the railway legislation wm brought down It would be
found that th* Interest* of both the
mainland of tt* province and Vancouver Inland had been equally eared
II* announced tbat tt* railway pot-
ley of th* government would be
laid down on *ueb brand guage line*
that alt portion* ol Brltieb Columbia

he had *v*ry confidence.
Mr. MeBrldt also dealt with th*
land policy ol the government u It
had bain called into question by thi
member for Albernl, Mr. Ilrewater.
Th* latter had declared that th* government had no land policy, tbat It
had bean faced with th* necessity of
either adopting th* policy of th*
Liberals In this connection or doing
without on*, and had chosen the
latter alternative.
Th* pr*ml*r refused tbln suggestion
and, amid th* applause nl tbe hoiitn,
demonstrated that the action* ot
tb* government In regard to th*
throwing ol the land* of the pro,
Ine* open to settlement had been all
that could be desired from the point
of view of those desirous of going on
th* land. Mr. Mcllrld* *tat*d thit
tb* policy ol th* government had
been In th* matter nl land*, an In
all other matterc, to confer ths ben
•fit* of legislation on all tbe people,
Irrespective of their alllllatlons, and
declared that whli* he had never

even mora I,lb*raln than Conservative* might be found taking up Und,
and that tven Hoclallsta might be
very well represented.
Th* opening report ol th* royal
commission on taxation wm referred
to by th* premier, who pointed out
that wh*n In 1904 It bad been found
necessary to ask the farmer* of British Columbia for heavier contribution* to th* treasiirry, they had liberally renpondnd because they recog
nlMd th* great need of placing th* finance* of th* province on a nound

"There eecmi to be Borne misunderstanding on the part of American
lead mine owners as to what we are
endeavoring to do in Canada," said
C, F. Caldwell, ot Kaslo, president
and manager ot the Utica mine, at
the    Hotel Spokane   on    Thursday.
"We do not seek admission to the
American market for our ores. All
that we want is our own market,
which is amply able to take care ot
all that we can produce. We do,
however, wont more adequate protection than we enjoy at present, and
out ideal is legislation along lines of
the lead schedule of the Dlngley hill.
We have good hopes that we shall be
able to get such a measure passed at
this session of the Dominion parliament. It would result In the Canadian lead producer obtaining about
4 | cents a pound lor his lead, where
he now gets about 3 cents.
"On five cars of ore recently shipped by roe Irom the Utlca, tor which
Bmelter returns have been received, I
was paid by tbe smelter approximately 12.40 a hundred pounds for the
lead contents. On top of this I get
a bounty from the Dominion government ol 75 cents a hundred pounds.
We wish to have this bounty abolished and a straight measure ot protection Instituted in its place. At
the present time our smelter settlements are on the basis ot tne London
price of lead, less one cent a pound
lor freight to that market. Not a
pound ot lead produced In Canada
ever is exported, so that the freight
deduction is unjustified.
"The smelter returns Irom the five
cars I hnve shipped showed values ot
147 to 158 ounceB In silver to the
ton, around 10 per cent in lead and
20 per cent In sine. On thie class ot
ore the treatment rate at the Trail
smelter Is 17.90 a ton, with a Penalty for excess tine ol 60 cents a .unit,
aggregating trom 16 to $8 a ton. I
am shipping at the rate of tour cars
a month and am atoriog ore at a
warehouse on the Kaslo & Slocan
railway until it resumea operations
next spring.

After routine business thesldent'a
address was read and a vote of
thanks was given him.
First Vice President Glegerich, In
his address said last year had not

but there are reasons to believe that
the Slocan-Kaslo district will ia the

facilities and that many mines will

He said the Dominion government
was to nppolnt a special commission
to consider the lead-zinc industry
from a commercial standpoint and to
aesiet it by proper tariff or bonus or
both. The lead bounty, was of great
assistance to that industry, expired
June, 1913, and while it was generally understood that a tariff commission was to be appointed by the Dominion government at the present
sesBion, he said it was tbe opinion
of the mine owners that the work of
a general tarlfl board could not well
be completed in time to have the
findings acted upon, and it was deemed urgent that a Bpccial tarill com-
misston be appointed.
The fruit industry, he declared was
making great strides, but the lumber
industry in the Kaslo district was
rather inactive. With the nitrcetnciit

"Ob, I bog your pardon!" he cried instantly "I was surprised. You know

There seemed nn Interrogation; at

herself explaining, coldly, haughtily.
"It's Halloween.' she said stiffly.

Te Wash Silk Stockings.
It Is something of u puzzle how to
wash silk stockings successfully, but
the following method has been used
with satisfactory results: Make soapsuds of lukewarm water and a good
grade of custlle soap. Do not use hot
water, as it destroys tbe life of tbe
silk, llinse lu clear, cold water until
free from till suup, then pull the stocking* lengthwise and press with B
warm Iron, never a hot one. They
