Would Not Dare Repeal Acts
Vancouver, May 7.—"1 venture to
say that If by somo mischance tbe
Liberals came Into power in British
Columbia thsy would not dare repeal the Liquor act, Auto act, Trust
act, or Municipal act measures for
which I have been largely responsible and measures which the Liberals
have severely crltissed."
This challenge by Hon. W. J. Bowser to'bis opponents was the feature
of au address by the attorney general
tonight to Vancouver Conservatives,
who crowded the hall to hear bim.
He added:
"If you want real opinion as to
the administration of law and order
in British Columbia speak to American visitors. They w 11 tell you the
province is efficiently governed," and
"One would think if the Liberals
were In power the millenium would
be here. , I think It will be about
tbat period before thby do get office'

Prevention of Typhoid
Dr. W. Bapty, ol Victoria, B. C,
the acting secretary to tba provincial board of health, Bends out a
memorandum regarding the prevention of typhoid lever ln our province.
His communication is intended to
show how to prevent this very prav-
ulent disease.
Two years ago there were over one
hundred cases treated for typhoid
in tho Cranbrook Hospital. About
ii per cent proved fatal.
This number is far greater than
deaths due to consumption (tuberculosis) or smallpox, and it is to be
remembered that though a patent
recover from typhoid lever, his
health may bc Impaired ever after.
We hnve now a nt-'ans of preventing it, and lf the proverb "prevention It bettor thnn cure" ls true, this
Is a case iu point.
The prevention treatment is carried out by means of injections underneath tho skin; the skin is not.
scratched. Thc writer hae nover seen
a man oil work on account of tbls
The government proposes this year
lo supply doctors and nurses witb
iha material for Injecting freo ol
charge. Tho stutl Is exceedingly costly.
ThiB Injection ls compulsory in tbe
United StatcB army, lt has been
proved by statistics to have diminished the number ol cases ol typhoid
In thc army enormously, and to
have reduced the diaths lioin tho
disease to almost nil. The oourse'
which authorities have taken In the
United States, and tho enme course
being adopted in British Columbia,
shows whnt Importance thoy give to
It ls nothing new, as It was originated by Sir A. Wright ln 1905 and
was used by bim successfully on soldiers going to the Boer war over,
ten yenrs ago.
Let us taKu advantage of thia offer. People are gelling slack over
vaccination against smallpox for
this renson, that the form ol smallpox at present Is a mild one, and
patients don'l die Irom it, though ,
tiny go pockmarked tor life, Un the
other hand, typhoid Is as dangerous
to life as ever.
Fatal Accident
A fatal accident occurred at Fort
hteele on Tuesday when " Scotty "
Gordon was killed and a man named
Hardy seriously injured,
Tbe men were engaged in hauling
lumber to Fish Lakes for Mr. G,
Pownall. They were going down the
grade from the bridge that crosses
Wild Horse creek, when the horses
became frightened and ran away.
Thc pole of the wagon was broken,
and the horses getting Ioobc from
the wagon ran about a mile from
the scene of the accident nnd were
found caught in some brush. Gordon
was killed outright, having sustained a fracture of his skull, his collar
bone also being broken. Hardy was
found unconscious, but Mb Injuries
were slight.
Tho funeral services were held at
Fort Hteele, Thursday, under the
direction of undertaker W. F. Beatty.
Coroner Bell held an inquest, which
resulted in a verdict of accidental
death, caused by being thrown from
a waggon by a runaway team.
Import Grade Stock
VANCOUVER, B. C.-The provincial agricultural department proposes to continue this year its program of grade dairy stock sales in
view of the greatly increased interest
manifested by the farmers of the
province in live stock, announced the
provincial live stock commissioner,
W. T. McDonald, who is here today
from Victoria.
Last year the agricultural department shipped in nearly 500 picked
dairy cows, which were sold at auction to farmers at various provincial centres. Mr. McDonald states
that every efiort will be made to find
more cattle for Bale to farmers for
breeding purposes.
"Never before have the farmers o.'
British Columbia taken such an interest in live stock as at the present
time," said the live stock commissioner.
Mr. McDonald intimated that in
order to cope with the increasing
work of the department, it was proposed to add a number of new officials, who were being brought out
from the agricultural institutions of
eastern Canada.
P. H. Hopkins, one of the instructors at the Ontario agricultural college at Guelph, is to take office oa
June 1 as assistant live stock commissioner under Mr.  McDonald.
A. Ramsay, alao o: Gueipn, use
been appointed assistant to Agriculturist Walker, who represents the
provincial department in tbe Port
George district. It is also the intention to appoint a Held and crops
expert to assist Inspector Readey.
During thc spring season the department has distributed alfalfa to
400 farmers, states Mr. McDonald,
and corn to about 300.

Victoria,  1914.
This disease has made its appearance amongst the dogs of the Cowi-
chan District. Two suspicious cases
also occurred some months ago at
Mission. The disease haa appeared
in Oregon* and possibly In the State
of Washington as well.
As the period of Incubation of
HableB is prolonged, the extent of
tbe infection iB not yet apparent, so
It Ib incumbent upon all to be on
tho look-out for further outbreaks.
The Dominion Veterinary Department la handling this bo far as anl,
tuals are concerned, but I wish to
be Informed as to any suspicions
cases which may appear.
This Department is prepared at
any time to forward complete treatment for hydrophobia, which, as yon
know, must be administered to the
person as soon ab possible after being bitten, which is some weeks before the symptons develop.
This treatment can be administer
ed by the local practitioner.

Terrific Speed
LONDON, May 8.-The Standard
and the Express devote considerable
room to describing "thu latest miracle of science." Etnlle Bachelat, nn
old Frenchman, is said to have produced a railway system permitting
of a speed of 300 miles nn hour. The1
cars are made of steel with aluminum base. This metal, suffering magnetic repulsion hy electric magnets
which are situated under the track,
holds the cars suspended in the air,
A serieB of tunnell-shaped solenoids
along tbe track, which are successively electrically magnetized, pull
the suspended car at terrific speed.
This type of car is intended for
freight and mail service, Ba:hela1
claiming the cost of transportation
for 300 miles being one cent per lb.
The cost of laying thc track would
be $25,000 a mile plus $00,000 for the
power houses at each 100 miles. The
passenger cars would be fitted with
propellers and motors similar to the
The Inventor suggests that it
would be possible to do the present
journey from London to Manchester
In 48 minutes, InBtead of 4 bouts,
while the 81 hour journey from London to Glasgow could be reduced to
one hour and 15 minutes. The experiments with large-sized models yesterday so impressed railway experts
tbat Bachelat was offered the ubc of
a circuit within five miles of London
to try and practically test the inven
tion, which represents 20 yenrs of experiment.
Serious Cause for
Washington, May 7.—Upon receiving a long cipher message from G
Funsbon at Vera Cruz tonight, Secretary Garrison called Into confer.
ence at the war depnrtment Major-
Gen. Wltherspoon, chief of staff, aud
the entire general staff of the army.
The conference lasted until nearly
son left his otlice he and the army

ofTlcers wore grave faces and it wns
no secret that news of Importance
had been received.
Later Secretary Garrison snid Gen.

((Hipped for such an expedition.
lt is known that high otliciuls of
the war department are anxious to
place at Vera Cruz or on transports
within striking distance a large e-
nough force, perhaps 50,000 or 60,000
men, to make an expedition to Mexico Olty if it becomes necessary.
Officials of the department are
known to believe that if an advance
on Mexico City is ordered it will be
necessary to guard every mile of the
railway as the army moves forward
and that a large force would show
the natives the futility of resistance,
whereos a division of 15,000 nun
might be subject tp attnckB along
the route   possibly  with  big losses.

It may be interesting to those
who favor Home Rule in Ireland tu
know that John Bull is still clinging to his Ulster.
It used to bfl "(roo trade," now
it's "free food." If Laurier went
back into power tbere would be as
much free food as there was tree
trade after  1890.
• •   •   •
If tbt new "free food" policy of
the "Orlt" Opposition means any-
tbibg, it means the ruin of the Canadian farmer.
The latest Laurier policy ia a direct slap at the Canadian farmer.
The Liberal leader and the interests
he represents object to seeing the
farmers of the Dominion getting a
square deal.
• •   •   •
While not wiBhing to throw our
Liberal readers into a tit, we deem
it our duty to announce that the
graft on the Grand Trunk Pacific
construction has put a tax of $5.00
on each man, woman and child in
the Dominion of Canada.
• •   t   •
The Liberals attained office on a
low tariff pledge, and Laurier was
never done talking about "free trade
as they have t in England." and
was to "wipe out every vestige of
protection from the tariff." His total reduction of the tariff during his
long tenure of office was less than
half a cent. We wonder if his free
food policy will amount to as much.
• •   •   «
Sir Wilfrid and his party, in their
cry for "free food" offers the wiping
out of over eleven million dollars
per year In food taxes. At any rate
it would take about seven years to
make good the seventy million dollars which the Liberal party gave to
the Grand Trunk Paolflc,
Sir Wilfird Laurier saya;    "It    iB
laughable to argue that the   ("ana
ian farmer needs protection against
a  country  that  can   barely   feed  it-
Then how in the name of heaven
would tbe removal of the food duties benefit tbe Canadian consumer
if the United States can scarcely
feed itself?
Tbe above Liberal argument for
tbe removal of free duties iB tbe
very atrongust possible argument a-
gaiiiHt any sucb action.

Forest Protection
Victoria. May 5.—Mr, H. R. Mac-
Millan, chief of the forest branch of
the provincial government, announced on Wednesday that bis department had ,ust finished sending out
notices, covering the entire province,
to the effect that commencing tomorrow, no dree may be started in timber areas without a permit from tbe
tire wardens in the various districts.
This prohibitory order, however does
apply to tires that require to be
started for industrial purposes or (or
th.' preparation of food, or to secure
warmth. Mr. MacMitlan'a department is taking the most elaborate
precautions to educate those most in
need of it of the danger of starting
fires during the dry season. Arrangements have been made to have 3l0
moving picture shows throughout tbi
province run slides showing the dis-.'*
troiiB results of forest tires. Another
novel method of educating tbe people
who go Into the forest tracts is the
distribution of pocket whetstones
bearing the admonition: "When y- v
are in the woods keep youa axe nnd
•tnife sharp, and be careful not to
atart forest lires." Mr. MncMillan
adda that he is to call a meeting of
the forest board at an early date to
take under consideration the question of the exemption of certain
more or less settled districts in the
province from the operation of the
permit system, the idea being not to
work any hardship on aettlers where
tbere are safe clearings.
Government Guarantee

apply for assistance to the Borden \
Government tlio assistance should

other reason, the Government has
power forthwith to take over the
road as the absolute property of thu
Dominion, subject only to the bonded indebtedness.
These are the principal features of
thc arrangement, which, all things
considered' is a remarkably good one
tor Canada. Mackenzie, Manu Sc
Co., Ltd., and Mackenzie and Mann
individually have agreed to release
all tbeir claims against the Canadian Northern for profits on construe
tion, and so forth, and a Government director will be placed upon
the board, with the view of further
protecting  tbe country's  interests.
It would have been a grave business fur Canada bad the road, now
ucaring completion, been abandoned
to ita creditors. Saying nothing of
the large umount of British and
French capital that would have beeu
loBt, it would have been unable to
pay the huge sums it owes to Canadians, while tit- progress of the
West would have been seriously retarded.
British Columbia. Alberta and
Saskatchewan have quite recently
guaranteed the bondB of subsidiary
companies of the Canadian Northern
to an enormous amount. British Coi
umbia has guaranteed bonds belonging to them to the extent of over 40
million dollars, Saskatchewan to the
extent of 20 millions, while Alberta
has guaranteed bonds covering over
2,005 miles of railway. Many of these
subsidiary lines have not yet been
started, but a considerable mileage
1ms been built and the bonds sold.
Had the parent compnny been loft
to die a lingering death there can be
little doubt the three provinces
would bnve suffered; and so in n"
probability would Ontario, where n
subsidiary company hns received
guarantees from the Provincial Oovernment aggregating nearly 8 mil-
The Dominion guarantees for tlte
Canadian Northern Proper, and for
some of Its subsidiary lines amount
to about 50 millions. Of this sum
a large proportion consists of guarantees granted by the Liberal Administration, As lat? as 1911, its
laHt yonr of office, time Government
guaranteed 35 million dollars for one
subsidiary line, whilst tn 190K it
guaranteed 8 millions for tbe Canadian Northern proper, and 9 millions
In 190H. Vet for these large sums
the consideration whlrh Sir Wilfrid
recolved from Ibe company was
scarcely  worth  mentioning.
Here, again, tbe collapse of the
road would have Involved the Dominion In inttcb confusion, and perhaps
in the end, heavy loss. In any QVOnt
the alined io the credit of Canada
would have been nothing short of a
national disaster sepecially at a
time like tbls.
A good many Liberal papers bave
taken up thc cry lately raised in
Parliament that the Borden Administration has "degraded" the Transcontinental line in places between
Winnipeg and Monet on "for the benefit of the Canadian Pacific"; that
is, to prevent the Transcontinental
from carrying freight for less than
the Canadian Pacific.
It would be difficult to imagine a
more absurd story. Tbe Government
engineers have here and there left a
"sag" where heavy fills were required; in other words, they have
not filled up to grade, but will do
so nt a red uood cost when the business of the rond warrants the outlay. Meanwhile, the same load cnn
be carried over the "sag" ns if the
fill had been made up to grade, the
train going down one side of the
"sag" and being carried by its momentum up the otter. Briefly, this
is the meaning of the momentum
grades talked of in the House. The
carrying power of the line is In no
way diminished, whilst the expense
of construction is somewhat reduced
in the odd spots referred to.
As for the charge that wooden
trestles bave been built in place of
steel ones, that is done in every corporation railway of importance both
in Canada and in tho United States,
until the time comes when the
growth of traffic justifies the substitution of steel  trestles.
To say that this step Iiiih been taken in the interest of the Canadian
Pacific is an utterly wild assertion.
The enormous cost of the Transcontinental, which was to have bWn
built for 00 millions, nnd will call
lor 200 millions or more, puts it
clean out of business as a competitor
of the Canadian Pacific; nnd nf course
If more money were lavished on it
by bringing nil tlm heavy fills remaining up to grade, Its Inst condition  would  be  worse titan  the flrat.
Within the last lew years the Canadian Pacific has been well-nigh rebuilt. The line between Winnipeg
and Lake Superior bas been double-
tracked, and so have other portions;
heavy grades have hren cut down or
evaded by costly tunnelling in a few
good sections nf the West, and in a
few years the whole road from St.
John, N.H., to tho Pacific Ocean,
wll] be double trucked, so tbat, Considering iis length, it. wlll easily lie
tlu< finest and most efficient line on
ibis continent. It will set. tho rntjH

Grand Trunk Pacific, and the latter
may thank its stars if it cnn grant

British Columbia's
wise policy
VICTORIA, B.C .—Tho following
article appeared in the April .Bsue
uf American Forestry on "Progress
in Britiah Columbia,"
BritlBh Columbia bay already trav
elled, surely and very rapidly, far
along tbe road which leads to forest
conservation, Tbat is important
since in British Columbia's forests
is estimated to be over one-half of
the total timber stand of all Canada
To what is British Columbia's
progress In forestry due? To these
two things as I see it. First a very
remarkable opportunity to make thc
provincial forests serve the provincial welfare: for while British Columbia possesses largo agricultural
and rich mineral resouces, vast water powers and great flsUorios, it is
primarily a forest country. Second,
after opportunity comOB the man ia
William H. Bosh, the Provincial min
istcr of Lands, who, with the Btrong
support of the premier, Sir Richard
McBride, is carrying forward wisely
and vigorously n remarkably progressiva clean-cut' policy of land,
forest and water conservation. This
new forest branch is a distinctly
vigorous infant. The toys with which
It is playing happily and usefully
ure the forests of Bsitish Columbia.
That makes <|tiitc an extensive puzzle picture, for British Columbia's
forests cover one hundred ami llfty
million acres. This infant organization spent last year about $350,000
and took in from rentals on timber
held by lumbermen under lease from
the government ''royalties'', which
means payments for stumpage, and
from miscellaneous sources, about
$3,000,000, or a revenue of $6.93 per
capita for the entire population of
thc province.
Nor is this precocious youngster
interested merely in present returns.
It also goes in quite extensively for
forest tire protection and last year
held, with a force of 320 men, the
total tire damage in the entire province down to $18,354 which, to put
it mildly, is distinrtly creditable to
those 320 men. During the year also
thc forest branch completed its organization of twelve forest districts
earh with a district forester in
charge. It made an admirable beginning on logging inspection of 794 operations whose product aggregated
one and one-third billion feet board
measure, as well as great quantities
of shingle bolts, posts, mine props
and poles. It made a notable beginning too, on permanent forest improvements, in the construction of
nearly twelve hundred miles of trail
und 3«0 miles of telephone line. To
complete the tale merely of its more
notable achievements, the forest
branch has also developed a thriving little timber sale business, which
Inst year comprised $238.000 worth
of timber sold, and a further $147,-
000 worth advertised for sale. When
the fact is recalled that the forest
branch is not yet three years old,
this progress is notable in foreBt
history anywhere.
The next tusk before the branch Is
to put forestry into effect on alt
timber limits with fairness to the
forests and to thc lumbermen. That,
as Mr. Ross, the Minister of Lands,
announced in a recent speech, is the
most important task of all; and he
and his forest branch are facing it.

N.U.—Unauthorized publication ol

The recent act introduced by Mi.
Hubs for the adjustment of timber
loyalties is a great accomplishment,
without going into detail (for the
act is available from tho forest
branch to anyone who asks for it)
I want merely to indicate wbat it
accomplishes  In  fundamentals.
This act provides that royalties,
now llfty cents, shall go up by llfty
per cent on January 1, 1915, and
there remain for Ave years. Then, in
1920, comes a readjustment, under
wblch the government tirst det-r-
mlnes the average mill run price of
lumber for tbe last three years, and
adds to the royalty for the next live
year period one-fourth of the excess
above $18,00 per thousand feet. At
the end of every live yeans for six
live-year periods the same process is
renewed, the percentage of the price
increment above a price of $18.00
taken hy the government in royalty
rising gradually from twenty-live to
forty per cent,
This means straight prolit shariug
between the public and the lumbermen. In revenue it means from forestry several times the present returns before the period of the act is
ended. As a precedent it means to
llrltlsh Columbia true conservation
If the precedent be followed,
as I firmly believe it will, lt is precisely one of the great conservation
principles for which lilflord Pinchot
has been lighting and has been winning nnd goes on doing both, in thc
United StateB; and it is very gratifying to Americans that in his
speech endossing the Royalty Bill of
Mr. Ross, the Premier referred to
(iifford Pinchot as "that great conservation leader who possesses the
rare combination of vision, leadership and common sense." The appl -
cation of that principle to the otber
vast resources of Brlt.sh Columbia,
such as water powers and minerals,
will make it more nearly than any
other government of which I know,
the epitome of conservation principles, with the possible exception of
I do not mean, of course, to Imply that the situation is absolutely
roseate; conservation confronts difficulties in British Columbia as it
docs elsewhere. But there is in tbat
Province an admirable combination
of opportunity—for British Columbia
owns nearly all the natural resources of British Columbia and the spec
ial interests do not—and of patriotic farsighted men like Sir Richard
McBride, Hon. W. R. Ross, Minister
of Lands, and Mr, Bowser, the At
torney-General, in position of high
trust. Such a combination is sum to
get great results.
The way in which the United
States Forest Service has, by friend
ly co-operation lent its help to the
now forest branch, is au exceedingly
praiseworthy and productive thing.
The forest branch cannot be a
replica of the Forest Service, because it deals with different conditions under different laws; but the
purpose of both organizations is to
get the highest good for the greatest number from publicly owned for.
est, resources and there is and is
always bound to he a constant and
fruitful spirit of mutual help between UWm. That spirit is already
active and at work.
"Water-front Development" will
form thc theme of discussion at one
session of the international Conference on City Planning to be hold at
Toronto on May 25-27 next. Mr. R
S. Gourley, representative of the
Board of Trade on the Toronto Harbour Commission, will give an address on this subject, which should
be of interest, not only to the citizens of Toronto, but to the whole
country. Our harbours are national
gateways' and the Dominion Government is expected to contribute over
$6,000.000 to this particular project.
Thc works now in progress at Tor-
i nto should prove of national inpor-
tancp in another respect als-), namely, by putting before other cities an
example of what may he done hy
systematic planning for water-front
development. The works proposed
are of three kinds: (6) Industrial development (2) Commercial and doct
development (3) Park and boulevard
improvements. They involve the lining in of Ashbridge Bay and the establishment there of a model Indus*
cilal district with Ilrst class railway
and lake transport facilities; the
deepening of the inner harbour and
building new docks; and the construe
tlon of a beautiful 12-mili' driveway
extending along the entire water
front, with a protected channel for
small craft for the whole d-stunee,
Indoons, parks, Islands, amuqoment

thing that could bo desired for ium
