The Timber Industry
British Columbia's Valuable Possession-Soms Very
Necessary Precautions.
British Columbia possesses one dl
the few great timber areas ot the
world. While tho countries of the far
Bast havo lost all tho timber thoy
ever had, while European nations ore
are planting trees by hand over great
areas to ensure crops In the futuro;
while Eastern Cnnada and the New
Kngland States nre clamoring for
lumber nnd viewing with alarm the
rapidly diminishing supplies In their
country, British Columbia has a vast
area ol aver 66 million acrea of tlm-
Merland, which eould produce, according to estimates of experts, at least
one hundred board feet per acre pi
annum, or a total of sir and a hnlf
billion feet. This would return to
the Government over six and a I
million dollars every year. The
vrovtnce lo the possessor dl a glo
ious heritsge of over 300 billion feet
of timber, which Ib quite hall of all
that standing In the Dominion at the
present time. At the present rate ot
cutting, the loggoro of tho province
nre taking annually one fifth of the
amount which Is added by the natural processes of growth.
If one looks over tbe industries I
the province, the shipping and all th
silled and dependent trades, one will
see thnt at least three ont of ever;
Ave men ln the country are lookin
to the forest to supply their ltveli
hood.   There are kery few industries
which are not to a greater or less ex
tent under obligation for their exi.
tence to the forest resource.   Outside
altogether ol   the   loggers, millmen,
transport   men,   builders,   and   all
those who use wood in a secondary
way, the vast majority of the great
farming population are dependent upon the forest-clad hills for the water
which brings fertility and wealth tr
the   wonderful   natural   soils   from
which spring the crops which have
become renowned the world over.
But the timber products themselves
are gaing out ot the province,in lur
ber; they are giving labor to thousands upon thousands of men here,
and building up the prairie, (rom
which so great a proportion of the
wealth of the Kast is derived. Without the vast (orest wealth of British
Columbia lt .would be impose ble to
build up the great farming areas on
the other side of the Rockies.
The average citizen of British Columbia has a much greater interest
than all this, however, in the great
forests of which he is part owner and
administrator, in co-operation with
progressive hundreds of thousands
who are making this Great Last West
the mighty and potent fattor ln the
nation's prosperity. In the past seven years enough money bas been paid
into the Provincial Treasury in the
Provlbclsl Treasury in tbe form of
fees, licence returns and royalties to
pay for all the roads, bridges and
wharves which have been constructed
in that time. Today one dollar out
of every four which comes Into the
public coffer is the product of the
forest. Greater even than the value
of the agricultural products Is that
of the timber which ia manufactured

Crinbrook Bra is Band on Tuesday
inln , on the Catholic ( lurch lav.n
was an un*ua!l°cd su.cees, There
was a large crowd in atte d ince.
The programme commened at 8 p.m.
and was comln ed unl 1 tea thirty.
Tbe music was excellent, and much
enjoyed by ill. The flower booth
was in charge of Miss Bella Drum
mond who did a rushing business.
Ths candy booth was ln charge o
Mesdames W. H. Wilson and J. R.
Thompson, who dispensed a large
■unnt ti ofb ome-mnde candy. Mrs.
A. VTtc enie and Ms. Fred Webb
ha. a tith rond, and many o' th
girl* md boys were caught; but th it
ls not surprising when you go fishing aa you are liable to catch any
old thing, even a cold. J. LeSeur
won the bean guessing contest taking
a box of candy. Rd.'rcsbmenti were
sin el by Mesdames McGoldic,
Greaves and Whebell, assisted by tbe
Mls.es Krnn-dy, Hlcken o'ham, Purl
Cooper nnd Belnu. lhe ground
were hand omtly decorated with bunt
ini and Chinese lanterns. The even*
was a nn mcial success, the net re
selpts will amount to over 6100, and
the Cranbrook Band desires to ex
press their sincere thanks to thos
who so freely assisted in the work,
and to tbe general public who so Ub
orally patronised the event,
within tho province Into lumber, pulp
and other wood products.
It is plainly evident, thorefore, that
to maintain the prosperity of the
Province, it ls necessary to maintain
tho Forest Resource. This resource
la subject to one of the greatest dangers In tho world, tho dangor which
which brings havoc into towns, cities
and settled - communities, which
mounts Into the hundreds of millions
overy year. And the Forest has no
protection such ns hnve tho buildings
In the grent cities. When the great
enemy—fire—breaks out In tho forest,
there ls practically nothing to Impede its progress or check its work ol
devastation, snve favorable climatic
conditions or somo peculiar configuration of the ground. The trees stand
closo together; 11 one tree goes the
one next it will; Bro reaches up from
the ground, gets into the crowns,
and then sweeps ovor mountains and
a.less without any possibility oi being checked, ln the cities there are
are patrols, somo ol thom on motor
trucks which can speed as high as
sixty miles an hour. In the forest,
on the other hand, there may be no
one to see the f re until says after it
has begun. The gospel of an'ounce of
prevention being better than a pound
ol cure applloa so thoroughly to tho
(orest that every efiort which Is being made, and should be made ln tbe
iuture, should look to thc early extinguishing of a lire belore It attains
a size which renders lt impossible to
put out.
The cauaes of the vast pro. o*tion
of forest fires today nre in the carelessness ol people who bave fires and
do not properly extinguish them. According to the report ol thc Chlel
Forester for the past year, over 70
per cent of the blazes which originated in other ways thin Irom lightning were from sheer carelessness on
the part ol campers, i,r.ish burne s,
land clearers, etc. Th.re were a great
number of conflagrations traceable,
lt Is true, to railways whose lln-.s
were not cleared of brush, and sparks
from the passing in;in=s eet blazes in
he debris by the right of way witb
lisastroUB results to the surrounding
There are numerous methods devised by tbe Provincial Forest Branch
luth.rltl.a to prevent and extlnsusb
torest fires. There were employed
'ast summer o'er 150 forest rangers
whose sole duty waa to saleguard th >
tanln; timber and collect and or-
anl-e (ire f gluing parties in case of
an outbrea'c. The money expended
on the work of thes* men ran into
h; hnnd.cds of thousands of dollars.
They assisted In extinguishing blazes
to such an extent that there was
buro-d only over 116,000 acres, with
a total money losa of 6300.000. Th
cost of thetr upkeep ran into $745,

The aim of mi article ln "Tbe

that the Justification lor the policy

with any (logroii ol enthusiasm,
"To live well a people must Ilrst

Alter pointing out how history be-
les the reproach of thi Little Eng
lander tbnt tbe story of thc building
up ot the Empire is one long record
f bloody conquest and sell-iiggrnnd
iaCtuent, the writer goes (n to suggest one or two of the moral pilncl
pleB ujon which the movenvn' tor
closer union ultinintely rests.
He shows how, nftor the'r long submission nt the hamlB ot tho Utilitarian School, who btl'.leked that thi on
ly  motives  which  Impelled  mankind
wore ultimately pleasures and pains
and   uho  looked  on  government  as
one vast vast evil, the Ideas of duty
and personality hnve once again emerged and with their emergence ha o
completely    altered  and   greatly  en
riched our conception of the commonwealth.
Instead, therefore, ol regarding the
colonies as useless burdens to be
dropped, now that they have emerged
erged from tutelage, like ripe fruit
from the tree, we are beginning to
realize the immense possibilities
which thc new situation has created

A  proif ol this Is to be found in
the  awakened  interest  of  tlio  Radical party, hitherto for the most part
Llttlo  Eiii'latidcrH,  in  tho   deal  Imperialism,   and   the    writes  quotes   a
striking passggo in support of his ar-
umeiit Irom a speech by Mr. Morel
"Wn must make It door that the

Is the Ideal which should commend itself to Mbornllsm."
On the Bide of the other Idea already   mentioned,   that  ot   personal-
allty,   wc come   to realise  that the
end of the state 1s to make men, and
its strength is measured not in terms
of defenelve armaments or eoo'ii..io
prosperity, but by the mor.il nersoil-
ality of its cltizcns"-an(l ln this respect what is most needed In these
days of monotonous industrialism is
„„ enlarged outlook upon life nud ..
wide Hold for individual energy.
-\  policy  ol closer union in tho
Empire is lull significance ia relation
to this demand.   It promises a life of
energetic activity to those who settle
In countries beyond tho ocas,  whero
capacity and merit are less hampered
by tradition and social custom than
Bt home.    But what Is perhaps less
obvious, but even more important is
tbe enlargement ol outlook and responsibility  that  most result as the
Empire glows in solidarity.  The Bn-
tiflh  anh  Colonial  democracies  alike
suffer from political  parochialism.   .
There Is hut one wny ol promise.   It
Is  that  thc  peoples  of  tho  Empire
shnll realize their national unity and
drnw from that Ideal an inspiration
to common endeavor In tho fullilment
of the moral obligations which their
membership  of  the   Empire entails.
Thc recognition of common Imporlul
InterestB  Is bound  to broaden  both
their basis ot public action and their
whole (low ol life.    Public life Is fn
nobled by grent causes and by theso
alone.   II It bo true thnt 'a groat empire ond Httle minds go ill together,'
It Is true. alBo that the conduct ol
great ulliiirs Inspires the Imagination
and elevates the chnracter ot those
who Bhorc In It."
This being so, it becomes plain
that, so Inr from being ln antagonism os they are olten thought to he,
the problems of Empire and domestic
reform cnn only be solved n correlation.

Thoy drive away headaches, tho low

says:—"Somo two years ago I became
very much run down. I consulted a
doctor who told mo Uiat It wns a bad
case of anaemia ond nervousness. I
had most of the symptoms that accompany this trouble, such as headaches,
a tired feeling, poor appetite, and pallor. The doctor's medicine did not
seem to help me and then I began
changing from ono medicine to another, but with no better results.
Finally at the suggestion of my mother 1 decided to try Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills. I got two boies and by the
time I Uad taken them 1 began to feel
better. This cheered me very much.
and I continued using the Pills until
I had takon Tine or ten boxes, when
I was again enjoying the very boat

Do you know What you're eating?

An apple, of course.
You are eating, Buid tho doctor,
albumen, sugar, gum, malic acid, gallic acid, fibre, wator and phosphorus'.
I diopa thoso things are good. They

Nothing cotild be better. Vou ate
I observed, rather too much meat at
dinner; tho malic acid of iho applo
neutralizes the excess of chalky matter caused by too much meat and
thereby helps to keop you young. Apples are good tor your complexion.
Their acids drive out the noxious mutter wlilch cause skin eruptions. They
are good for your brain, which 'those

the food of the gods—the -magic re-

certain .'actors In the situation which '
dlflerentlatfl Canada, and particular '
lv Western Canada, from almost any

tirst point Is thnt Canada Is only in
the development stage.     Her natural
resource are only just beginning t.i
be   brought Into use.     The wea'tb .
which    is   lying   latent  in these re-j
Fources is alor.e enough  to  warran
Canada   in  beta? nu.te confident    la
the  face  of  even  greater   strlngencj
than is apparent just now.     It  will
: require    money  to develop  thee*  re
joirces,  .*n.l while that development
I ts fn  pro jress Canada  will h i.e to
'borrow  that   money.     And  as  Can
sda  becomet  bt-tter  known from  ,n
investment point of view to the caun
rri's which have th;1 money to lend.
that money will be forthcoming just
as  soon   and   just   as  often   as   it   Is
needed.     The pessimists also fail to
take into consideration the enormous
Immigration   which   is   cominij into
Can ida  annually,   nnd   which  shows
no sign of decrease--and will show
no such sign until bur reeo'irces Rre
far more developed than they are at
present. Four hundred thousand re
pie added to n population ot sjmc
eight millions in a year Is nn addition of live per cent., without taking
into consideration the natural increase. That is to sny, that Canada
purchasing power and producing pow
er is being added to nt an extmor
dinarily rapid rate. All these newcomers mean added business in eviT
line of Industry; and so long as that
increase con tin ties, Canada's business
will increase in due ratio. Tbe whol
trouble appears to he in the inability
of those wbo have the task ol .inane-
[Ug this extraordinary development
to keep UP with it. This is due puit
ly tO lack oi foresight, but also large
ly to thfl unfilled need for an educa
tlonal campaign of advertising, so
far ao Qnanelng is concerned. Ther,'
is plenty of money to be bad. if th
returns promised aro good enough.
The over subscription to thfl Chinese

trouble is that tbe people who hav.
that money and are eager to Invee
it are not well enough acquainted
with the soundness ol tbe Held fo
investment in Canada to turn thi
attention In our direct on. That is

the oil Is Instantaneous and its application Is extremely simple.
A tall, austere man. who was evidently a stranger In those parts entered a church In a small town in!
Maine.     Ho took n scat in tho rear'
of lhe church nnd listened apparently
Interested for a short while.    After

Loaning over an old gentleman on his

Thirty-five years. I think, responded
the old man; but I don't know exactly.

Australian Scheme, They Say' Would
be Incentive to Immorality
The recent decision of tho labor government to grant to the mothers of all children born in Australia
a maternity bonus of $'2~* is attended
by many more difficulties than Its
authors anticipated. Thc sum of
$2,000,000 is te be distributed In tho
present financial year, ending Juno 00.
1913 and the next year a larger sum
will be sel aside.
Finance however, Is not the difficulty. The stumbling block is the question of tiie extension of tho grant to
to tho mothers of illegitimate children.
Tho prime minister, ln his capacity of
treasurer haa decided that the grant
shall be indiscriminate—In the sense
that no question as to whether the
mother was married or unmarried
siip.ll affect auy claim to tho $25.
The churches and particularly the
council of churches—a body ot Protestant dcuornlpntionallsts Interested
In social and political questions—
strongly resent ihls decision, and declare that lt is—
1—A slight on the sanctity of marriage .
2—An encouragement of vice.
"—A stlmi.us to Immorality.
4—An outrage on the moral sentiment of tlio community.
It Is urged that there were registered In Australia last year sbout 7200
Illegitimate children. A bonus of
$25 per child would nmount In theso
cases to $180,000 which it Is suggested might be far hotter spent In sub-
sldlztng maternity homes, refuges and
other voluntary agencies which aid
tiio fallen nnd thoso who have lost
their way In this young country.
Amid tills storm of agitation the
policy of the federal labor government, remains Unchanged, Mr.
Fisher devoted five minutes only to

implored lilm to stay his hand und

caudld declaration that the scheme
would go forward on the Hues proposed, and Mint ho was unconvinced
Hint tltere was any moral peril In nd-
lieslou to those line?. The government desired to come lo Ihe fiuanclul
nBBlstance of womon at lbo most trying period of their lives nml would

Decreasing Production, and Great Increase in Consumption.
"The latea't figures ln my posccs-
alon point to a very serious falling
off ln boef production in Canada,
which situation Is made more grave
by the almoBt nlienomeiiiil Increase
in conminiption of meat Hint bus taken place In (bis country within ll'i*
past few years," declared Dr. J. ('..
Rutherford. Veterinary Director Oeneral aud Live Slock Commissioner, to
n representative ot the Weekly aiobe
und Cuniida Farmer,
Dr. Riilbei-tord who has a reputation for conservatism In hla stale-
menls, views tbe present.outlook Cor
the live atock industry of Onnudu'
Witli no little alarm. A complexity of
conditions existing iu the different
agricultural sections of Cannda haa
meant a aerious reduction in the
production of meal, whllo the rapid
Increase In population has lod to
greater consumption. The outlook is
for still greater inoroaBO in popula*
tlon and th'orefore iu coiiflumption
bo asaorla, and unless some action ls
tnken ai onn., tor ll sun greater lulling off In production. A country
with ih _~*^*_™
and the abundance
which Canada bua. now faces the problem of how In provide meat for hot'
scanty population, it. would appear,
therefore that tho situation is Indoo l
"Until iceenlly It appeared aa lf
Canada would always have an abundant supply of live Block of ull kinds,
not only for lier own uae, but for export ub well," said Dr. Rutherford,
"In fact, it seemed that the principal
difficulty with which thoso engaged
in tiie live atock business would have
to contend would be that of finding pro-
Stable markets for au ever Increasing
and practically limitless surplus.
"Circumstances liavo. however,
brought about a very great, and to
Iny llliud, s-..lions obungo iu llle live
stock outlook. Although many of
the new comers iu western Canada
aro on the land und are, therefore!
in a BonBe agrleutlaurists, the conditions are such that but few of them
are devoting any great attention to
animal husbandry, and pust experience indlcaleB that aome considerable time la likely to elapse before
they are compelled, by the gradual exhaustion of the soil, to mm to mixed
farming and the systematic production of commercial live Block. For
Borne time, therefore, the majority
of these people will themselves be
consumers rather than producers of
"The continued augmentation ot our
urban population, which I believe is
due to thc extraordinary industrial
and commercial activity, stimulated
by the rapid development of lbo west
aa well as tho general progress of tbe
country, baa alao largely increased
the consuming, as compared with the
producing public. Then, also, tbe
tastes and habits of tbe people have
changed with the timer, and all this
general prosperity has fraught about
a higher standard of living, resulting lu a grenter per caplla consuuip-
of ment and tbe common meat food
"It Is certainly somewhat remarkable," he went ou, "that lu view of
those conditions the general production of live stock Instead of showing
the distinct advance which might
reasonably have been expected, appears to have scarcely maintained a
normal rate of Increase."
Aa a consequence of these circumstances, Dr. ltuinerford stated that
tbe Canadian export trade in livestock fa decreasing ln volume, and
bids fair to shortly altogether disappear. Not only la thla tho caae, ho
aaid, but imports of meat arc Increasing from day to day from the
United States, the Argentine Republic and the Antipodean countries.
For a number of yeara back mutton
from Auatralla and New Zealand has
been competing in the BritlBh Columbia markets with tbat from Washington and Oregon, an occasional car
load being shipped ns far east as
Alberta. During tho past winter,
however, frozen mutton na well aa
frozen rabblta have been landed at
our Atlantic seaports and aold to
Canadian consumers ln Toronto and
"Recently." said he. "there has
sprung up un Import Hade In American sheep aud lambs and very considerable shipments hnve beeu made
from ilalfnlo and Chicago to Toronto
and Hamilton."
Dr. Rutherford spoke cniliualnall-
cally ot the report of MraBra. Drydeii
and Rltch, tho two Commissioners
who havo looked Into the ahe^p-ruls-
ing Industry In Cnnada and lately
submitted their report.
"But something more than literature, no matter how practical, la required," Haiti he. "I feel sullailcd
that an energetic, demonstrative campaign, conducted on well considered
lines and supported by liberal liimii-
clal assistance, would effect an Immense ninouui of good In bringing
many farmers to n realization of the
unfortunate position Into which Ihey
have allowed themselves lo drift, liy
neglecting tho main or fiindnmrniul
principles of livestock husbandry."

These Commissioners wau'd li.id
that the serious falling off In prod i ••
Hon was due lu a large sense to the
chnnges that huve taken place In l!u

They would ulso find that there are
other reasons, among which may be
reckoned tho rapid development of

tieuuent diminution of the number of

haa been u "moat rcgrotlnble failure
