The journey along the Columbia
will long remain in ths memory of
the party; It was filled with interest
from thu start t0 the fln'sh. The description of the valley will be treated in a serarate article.
Several members of the Board ot
Trade loaned their cars for the purpoae ot taking tbe members of the
party to Fort Steele; the large truck,
from the Hanson Garage was also
commissioned for tbe benefit ot the
hockey boys. The ride to Steele was
full of thrilling moments, the snow
bad fallen fairly thick on the road
and caused the cara to skid and it
was only due to tbe excellent and
careful driving that accidents were
avoided.
When arrived at Fort Steele the
train was waiting for the party   at
the station. The morning being very
cold as soon as tbe party entered the
train a general disrobing process
took ll.ace and everyone made himself comfortable to enjoy the ride up
the valley. Good fellowship and the
utmost cordiality pervaded through
the whole party which augured well
for the success of the outing.
Arriving at Athalmer at 12.40 p.m.,
the party was met by the members
of the Windermere District Board ot
Trade and a most hearty reception
wae accorded the visitors. Sleighs
were provided to take the party to
the several hotels. After lunch a
curling match toofo place ln the
large rink when Tom Barry's team
waa pitted against B. H. Small's
aggregation. The game of ten ends
ended 7 to 6 in favor of Athalmere.
Immediately after the game the members of tbe Board of Trade and
frlenda met in the large Assembly
HaU in Athalmere where Mr. J. C.
Pitts, president of the W.'ndermere
District Board of Trade, welcomed
tbe visitors and outlined the purpose of the meeting assembled.
"Cn behalf of the citizens of the
joint cities of the Columbia Valley,
I bid you welcome to our midat, and
trust that yovi will en;oy yourselves
and have a good time," said Mr.
Pitts in his address. "The following
are the subjects outlined for consideration by this meeting by the council of the Foard of Trade which we
trust will have your due consideration:
"1. The status of the Banff-Windermere automobile road, and the
reasons   and possibilities for further
construction of same for the coming
season.
"2. Re leans to farmers by Provincial Government on long terms at
low rate of interest to enable them
to carry on development of their agricultural lends.
"3. Re Kootenay Central Railway
and the putting forward 0f efforts to
have trains run through from Golden
to a point on the Crows Nest Pass
on the day of departure, and also to
start therefrom on the journey to the
North.
"4. Also the possibilities ot having some of ths passengers bound for
the Panama exhibition routed this
way, either going or returning therefrom.
"5. The completion of the Canal
Flats road diversion and the question of tbe general improvement of
the road for automobiles between the
southern districts and points in this
district, more particularly as applied
to the route around the western side
of Lake Windermere.
"6. The extension of the Government Uf.ephi ne line from Windermere
south to connect with Cranbrook an 1
points to the south, east end west
from there.
"The question of closer trade relationship between this rart ard our
neighbors, more particularly suggested by the possibility of tbe formation of an association of tbe boards
to tbe north and along the Crows
Nest Branch of the C.P.R."
In reply Mr. Bowness, as pres'dent
of the Cranbrook Board of Trade,
said, "We are pleased to be with you
and extend to you and the members
of the Windermere Board of Trade
our best thanks for your cordial welcome.
"The long expected Koottnay Central Railway is now completed, making it Possible for, us To travel from
Cranbrook to Golden. It iB now possible for us to make thc trip in a
few hours, and it opens out a vista
for the future in the business relations that will exist between tho
various towns along its route. What
will in the future interest you will
likewise interest us. It would he
good if a joint association of the
various boards were formed for tbe
promulgation of the interests of
Southeast Kootmay. There are many
things which are of joint interest,
such as the railroal, bridges, roads
and the assistance we can be to the
farmers in the valley. All these you
are as much interested in as we are
in Cranbroc':. The Banff-Windermere
road, for instance, is just as important to us to have completed as it is
to the people ot this valley and you
can be assured 0f any assistance we
Can give you. In connection with the
Kootenay Central line we have arranged cn auto service tiom Fort
Steele to Cranbrook and return to
meet all trains and we trust that
you will avail yourselves of its many
advantages.
"On behilf of tbe Cranbrooi Board
of Trade I extend tp you a moat
hearty invitation to visit us in that
city and we will arrange for sufficient cars to meet you at Fort
Steele to take you to Cranbrook, and
you can be assured o'. a good time."
I Mr. Stevenson emphasized tbe necessity of having a joint Board of
Trade for tha eastern districts, and
explained that there already existed
a charter   for   this   purpose   which
I took in Fernie, Hosmer, Blko, Moyie,
Golden and Cranbrook, and he would
, be glad to see this meeting do something along these lines. Considerable
discussion followed, when Mr. Hamilton reviewed the membership ot the
Windermere Board and begged to
make ths following motion:

McNabb to  Preside  Over  Lumbermen
Want Time for Payment of License Rentals Extended until
Six Months After Close of the War
C. D. McNab of Waldo, the well-
known Eaat Kootenay lumberman,

Mountain Lumber Manufacturers' Association of British Columbia in *}e
(bfoard of trade rooms yesterday sleeted president for the emuing year t0

ton, who has acted In that capacity
during the past year. Other oncers
elected were:
Vice-Pr. s dent—Charles O. Rodgers.
Executive committee—W. A. An-
stie, Revclsto' e; W. Mark DeCew,
Grand For: a, and W. F. lanmers,
Chases
1h> association has petitioned the
government to extend the time for
the payment of llcenae rentals for at
, least six mon hi after the close of
the European war own; to the exceptional financial conditions, and a
j delegation of four was appointed to
interview the government in connection with thia matter and while in
Victoria to go carefully into the mat
ter of the proposed new Workmen's
Compensation act with the government.'
After the meeting yesterday the tollowing statement was given out by
the secretary ot tbe association:
i^^wm——^^^^
"After due ccWd.ration the Mountain Lumber Manufacturers' association has deemed it advisable tor the
welfare of tbe lumber industry to
send to parliament repreeentatlvea
who hive a knowledge of the adverse
conditions under which the lumber
industry has been laboring during the
the past few years. The association
is not taking tbia course witb a view
of entering the political arena but
fee's tbat tbe lumber industry, the
largest anl most important in the
pro 'nee mi cmeiuently supplying
a large proportion of the population
in tbe interior of British Columbia
with a llv ng, is not getting the consideration due to it.
'"Ibe government statistics thow
that the revenue   from    the    (orest
| branch iB equal,to $6.63 per capita of
jthe populat'on and tbe total government revenue from th; forest of British Columbia  during  the  past  nine
. yeara hai been sufficient to pay tor
all the roads, bridges and wharves
constructed, and haa been the   most
j important factor in tbe commercial
and industrial development of the
province. The annual cut of Britiah
Columbia'timber ia approximately 2,-
000,000,000 tt.  There are 420 sawmills
and 790 logging camps in the province employing 60,000 men. The timber industry represents one-ball if
the payroll and 37 per cent ol the
anaual production of wealth in British Co'umbia. British Columb a in
1913 made tbe following expenditures
in the lumbering industry:
"In wages alone, $11,025,000.
|   "Food supplies   df operatives only.
! $3,353,000.
;   "Mill and logging supplies, $1,575,-
000.
| "Employm-nt tow boats, $800,000,
thia making total of $16,763,000.
| "In order that this portion of the
province will get proper representation, (hi lumbermen have decided
that they will suprort rnly men with
a knowledge of conditions who will
pledge themselves to <lo all in their
power to nlace ttalB industry on a
sound basis."
The approximate figures o' tmd'ic-
tion and shipments of lumber for the
past year from western Onn-idian
mills In comparison with 1913 were,
accord !ng to the report of the secretary, I O. Poole:

Cranbrook to Athalmer
Continued from Page One.
Moved by Basil. G. Hamilton, lnvermere, anil seconded by A. B. Mac-
elonald, cif Crnnbrook, that it is the
sympathy anil feeling of this Board
meeting that the time is ripe f0r the
closer communion of the Boards of
Trade of Kast Kootenay, having in
view the forming of an Association
ol Boirds of Trade pcrta'ning to
Bast Kootenay, and with that end in
i iew we would ask that the secretary   ol   the    Windermere    District
Ho ird    ot    Trade    alter   the  board's
annual meeting to communicate with
the Cranbroo't Board ol Trade and
the Board of Trade of Golden for the>
purpose of biiii.in,- Mrs about. Carried.
A res dut on wm then read from
the Windermere District Hoard ol
'Irad. re the Oontln I nee ot the Band
Windermere ro.id, calling attention to
its incomplete state and the reasons
and possibilities for further construction of same during the conrn.g sea-
pen. Tt was routed out to the meeting that there has already been about
J3OO.UO0 spent on this road and that
tbere now remains about 17 miles to
be completed and that this remaining part would cost about $250,000.
It was also rointed out ihat it
something was not done to it the
I'art already completed would Boon
be in need of repair as it wos not
bein;  used as  intended.
It was moved by J.' H. Doyle of
Fort Steele and V. Hyde Baker of
Cranbrook that this jo'nt meeting
endorse the resolutions of the Windermere Board of Trade.   Carried.
Re loans to farmers by the Province Government on long terms at
low rates of interest to enable them
to carry on development of their agricultural lands brought forth considerable discussion.
Dr. King said that it was a broad
subject and it was a form of aid
that was being much discussed these
days. Although he was not really acquainted with the details the working
such a plan would involve, yet he
believed a measure could be formulated thit would meet the need of the
farmer and bs of advantage to all.
The time had now arrived when the
Government should assist.
P. Lund of Wardner said that he
was a r°or financier but be be'.ieved
that such a proposition as suggested
could be carried out, and that it
would be a good thing. He believed
that before anyone received any aid
that would be forthcoming under such
a plan he should first of all be made
to demonstrate that he was a practical farmer and one thoroughly conversant with the working of the
land.
Mr. Bowness said that the C. P. R.
were contemplating bringing in settlers to several parts of the country
adjoining their railway system and
thit we could expect some of these
settlers in the Columbia to assist i]i
build ng up the country. If the land
in the country was to be taken up
and the settler encouraged lt waa
necessary to have the co-operation of
everyone toward that end. He did
r.ot believe .that a real estate manor
a company was helping a community
when they sold land for $150.00 an
acre, which he considered an unreasonable price; he thought $30.00 or
S40.00 per acre a fair price for the
major portion of the land in the district. He concluded, "We have the
land; we only need the people to
worn it."
Mr. Geo. Stevenson drew the attention of the meeting to a commission that the B. C. government
bad appointed and who bad travelled
all over the province gathering facts
relative to agriculture, and said at
tbe close tbey were sent to Other
countries to investigate the conditions and take note ot the methods
tbey adopted, especially in the   caae
of New Zealand and Australia. In
the cose of New Zealand, ho Bald, the
commission had found tho conditions
governing tho farmer to bo in such
perfect shape and the laws of Governmental assistance to farmers so
practicable thit it.was generally un- [
derstood such laws as exist la tho
latter country would be adopted by
the B, ('. Government with but slight
revision as they were considered to
be the best in the world. Tbo only
system    by    whleh    a   country   eould
build, up its agricultural Interest was
through long time oredlts,
Mr.K. K. Heat lie   referred   t.„   the
benefits received by the bonaflde farmer from the bun s nn.l said that,
the farmer, who was g. farmer anl understood bis business, could borrow
money easier trom the banks than
could any man in any other business.
A motion was then made covering
the discussion by V. Hyde Baker of
Crnnbrook and E. A. Hill 0f Cranbroo't "That thiB meeting approves
of the principle o Governmental financial assistance to individuals, bona
fide, encaged in tha pursuit of agricultural and allied industries in this
province.
And further: That the Government
1)2 requested to give the question its
speedy consideration to the end that
adequate legislation be enacted at an
early date.
"Further that copies of this nro-
tion be sent by the secretary of this
meeting to the Honorable the Minister of Finance, the Honorable Minister of Agriculture and to Harold E.
Forster, M.P.P., and Thomas Caven,
M.P.P.
Carried.
The following motion passed at a
meeting of the Windermere Board ot
Trade   held on Wednesday,  January
i 20th, was then read:
"This  board   would again impress
upon the Department of Public Works
of   the   Dominion   Government    the
' great   importance   of perfecting   the
j telephonic communication   so   lately
' improved by them, as between   this
! district   and Golden, by further   extending   the   system   from    Winder
I mere   to   Cranbrook, as more   fully
set out in the Board's minutes of the
19th April, 1911, 7th February, 1913,
and in a motion of this Board   duly
passed   upon   and  as passed by the
Associated   Boards   ot   Southeastern
British Columbia at their convention
of 22nd January, 1913, and   reading
as follows:
I "Whereas there is at present in   ex-
1 ietence a telephone line owned by the
Dominion Government and is in   operation between the village ot  Golden on the north and the various settlements in tbe Windermere   district
to tbe soutb of Golden;
j   "And whereas there ia a system of
company-owned   telephone   line    between   Cranbrook   and Wasa, which
Wasa Uee to the south of said Windermere district;
j "And whereas there Uee between
these two points a stretch of country many miles in extent which up to
the present is, generally speaking,
sparsely populated—too sparsely in
fact to warrant a local line of tele-
• pbone being built at the present time;
I "But whereas intercommunication
le greatly desired by botb Golden and
the Windermere District with the
places to the soutb of them and vice
versa;
"Therefore be it resolved that itis
the opinion of this, the Aesociated
Board of Eastern British Columbia,
that tbe Dominion Government might
extend their system to connect witb
the one owned bv the private company and- that they be and are hereby aeked to take this subject fn'o
serious consideration.
"And that the secretary be asked
to forward a copy ol this motion to
tho Minister of Public Wo:-ks, Ottawa, tho IToneirable R. F. Green, M.P.
and Mr. W. H. Stevens, superintendent of telegraphs at Kamloops, B.C." ,
It was moved by A. Doyle, Fort
Steele, and seconded hy V. Hyde Bakt-
or, Cranbrot':, that at this union
mooting of the Windermere District
Board of Trado, with members from
Cranbrook, Fort Steele and Wnrdner
Boards of Trftda, that the strong motion ns passed by the Windermere
Hoard of Trade at their meeting of
30th December and as later passed
lipi n bv our rospoctlvo boards be
again adopted horo ind that, tho
secretary be asked to telegraph the
Minister of Public Works to that effect giving him the sense ol the motion  to which reference is made.
In reference to the possibilities of
hnvlng some of the tourist traffic
bound (or tho Panama exhibition
routed this way, either going or returning therefrom, ns referred to in
tho chairman's open'ng remarks, Mrs.
II. J. Hamilton be'ng present signified her desire to say a tew words
about this. Mrs. Hamilton then gave
an excellent address to the meeting,
the members at the close heartily applauding her remarks.
Mrs. Hamilton in brief said that
she believed the mo-?t important
th'ng to do was to get the people
into the valley. Wben in Calgary recently she was told by a friend of
hers in close touch with the tourist
traffic of the C.P.R. that there were
GOO trains chartered for the specific
purpose of visiting the Panama Exposition. These were all being sent
over the main line via Bant. On ac-
covnt of the war the money Americans were all coming thia way. Upon ber eniuiring where they stopped
she was informed that the hotels in
Banff and Laggan were all looked
for July nnd August; in those two
months it would be difficult to obtain a room at all. It should, not be
impossible to get in touch with the
C.P.R. officials and recommenl them
to turn some of the traffic in this
direction. Photographs of winter
scenes as well as summer scenes,
good ones, forwarded wo ild be greatly influential in obtaining tourists'
travel over the now completed Kootenay Central Railway. Mrs. Hamilton also called the attention of the
meeting to the disgraceful mail service they had in the valley and gave
j for example how the Calgary Herald
posted in Calgary on Monday could
■ not reach them before Friday. ' She
suggested tbat proper representation
be made to the post office department
I that a through mail sack be sent to
| Golden and transhipped on the K. C.
•R. "We now have the line and It is
well for us to suggest to the officials the best methods by which the
valley can be assisted, and this is
one of them." Again referring to the
tourists Mrs. Hamilton sa'd that
tourists were the chief means of opening up any district, and it was to
be hoped that they would soon be
having many pass through tbeir district.   Applause.
It was moved by R. C. Carr of
Cranbrook and L. J. Peake of Athalmer that this meeting extend to Mrs.
Hamilton ita hearty appreciation for
her active service in the valley's interest.
After   lurther    discussion   it   was
moved   by R. C. Carr of Cranbroo't
and seconded by J. B. Cornwell   of
Athalmer "that this meeting of   the
Windermere District Board of Trade
along with members from Cranhrook,
Fort Steele and Wardner, beg to record   that   whereas it is understood
that   the Canadian Pacific   Railway
intend   carrying a large   number  of
: tourists via their many systems both
j to and trom tbe Panina exhibition
: that such being the case we consider
j that   the   (beautiful scenery of   this
route ehould not be overlooked   and
would urge that at least some of the
Canadian   Pacific Railway's through
trains   should   be   routed over    the
Kontenay   Central Railway.   Further
that copies of thia motion ahould be
sent by the sccrotary to Mr. Usshcr,
general traffic manager ot the Canadian Pacific Railway at Montreal."
Curried.
It was moved by R. E. Beattie,
Crnnbrook, seconded by R. McCreery,
Cranbrook, that the superintendent
e>f railway mall service be requested
to arrange tor a local mail bag service on each train from Golden to
Fort Steele, and that a direct service be inaugurated between, Fort
Steele and Cranbrooki instead of Fort
Steele and Bampart as at. first arranged,   Carried.
A discussion having for its subject
the Canal Flat hill then took place
and Borneremarkable facts were made
known. It was pointed out in one
caso that the hUl ns it is at present
is in a most criminal condition, there
being a spring on one Bide of the
road (which by the way is the trunk
roid of tho valley and the. only road
between. Cranhrook and Athalmer over which vehicles can pass) and as
the water comes to the surface it
runs over the road and down the
hill. During this cold weather the
water has frozen and now forms an
angle on the road which is extremely dangerous; in fact as Mr. Laving-
ton said "In coming down the hill
thc other day we had to cut our way
for the runner to pass through, or
the sleigh would have slipped over
the hillside rnd anyone knowing tbe
hill Vnows what that means." Again)
thore has been a n»w road begun that
is partly constructed which would do
away with the steep grade that at
present exists. Part of this new
road is made by a trestle bridge; already there has been about $10,000
spent upon it and now the work iu
abandoned, Many other instances
could be given which were referred to,
but suffice. The following motion
was made by L. J. Peake of Athalmer and seconded by Dr. F. B. Miles
of Cranbrook "Tbat the report of
the committee of tbe resolution of
this united meeting of the Windermere District Board of Trade with
members of the Boards of Trade of
Cranbrook, Fort Steele and Wardner
read'ng as below be adopted, viz.,
that it is the concensus of opinion
of the persons present that the prea-
ent condition of the Canal Flats road
is dangerous and that the neglect in
the nil-completion of it is criminal,
therefore the Provincial Government
(■hou'd be urged at the earliest possible moment to complete this piece
of work known »s th» Canal Flats
Dlvers'on, ard that it be gone on
with as speedily aa possible.
"Further that we would request the
Provincial Government to have an examination made of the trunk road on
tbe West Bide of Windermere Lake
and tbat they spend a reasonable sum
of money in. putting it in repair.
"Further that copies of this motion
be sent by the Secretary to tbe Honorable the Minister of Public Works,
Victoria, and Harold E. Forster and
Thomas Caven, our members of Parliament."   Carried.
It wae moved by R. McCreery,
Cranbrook, seconded by R. B. Beat-
tie, Cranbrook, that this meeting of
the members of the Windermere DiBtrict Board of Trade with members
of the Boards of Trade of CrsnTfc'Ook,
Fort Steele and Wardner, feel in connection with the operation of the
Kootenay Central Railway tbat it la
a matter of vital Interest to all concerned that the trains on this system
should be run through from Golden
to a point of the Crow's Nest branch
on the days upon which tbey start
from the terminals and that tbe pOw-
ers tbat be of the Canadian Pacific
Railway be asked to effect a change
in tbis way and for tbat end all
these Boards would especially urge. Further that conies
of this motion be sent to Mr. C.B.
ITsBher, general traffic manager ot
the C.P.R. at Montreal and to General Superintendent Stevens of Cal-
gtry."   Carried.
The chairman, Mr. Pitta, in   closing th1; meeting expressed    the  hope

automobile highway as follows:
"A further undertaking for which
provision is made in this year's estimates is the construction of a motor
road from Castle Mountain to a point
near Windermere, ccnnecting at the
t;ne end with the Calgary-Eanfl road
and at the other with thc existing
Gold[n-Crnn;.rook road, thus providing a round trip, or an alternative
route to the proposed inter-projincial
lO'.d from Calgary via Band National Far'.;. The cost of build.ng this
load, which wa3 surveyed last sum-
i mer, is jointly shared by the provincial government and the Cmidian
raeific from its summit   through   to
Mountains and Scenery in the Columbia Valley

that the event would be resultant of
much good, and be aga'n took the
opportunity of thai.'.ing the visitors
for being preeent. It was tbe beginning, be hoped, of a much closer union
of the peoples of the valley and of
the district; the interests of each
other were now bound by the advent
of the K. C. R. which would enable
them all to have much better communion witb each other in tbe future.
"I now ask you all to go with us
and be our guests at an In'ormal
supper and smoker at the Hotel lnvermere at lnvermere, and then later
you can return and see the hockey
match'in the rink at Athalmer."
Outside the doora of the Assembly
Hall where the meeting was held
were waiting several sleighs covered
with rugs and coverings to take the
party to Jn .'ermere. By ths time
the party arrived at the hotel and
wae welcomed by the most hospitable
of hotel proprietors, G. E. Starke,
everybody was feeling jn good fettle
and ready for a good sniper.
The tables were spread with the
best of everything and the guests upon receiving the word "go" from the
president began to do justice to tbe
excellent repast-, prepared on their behalf. After supper the cigars were
passed .round and in the smoke of a
moment's reflection one could wonder if it wae really Tn ermere or

When tho party left the hotel for
the hockey game tbe cosy covered

another ride was enloved. Thi lnvermere team were pitted to P'ay the
Oranbrook team, and in a hard contested game the former nosed out
winners by obtain'ng the le ng end of
a seven to six score. The Cranbrook
boya outplayed and outskated their
opponents in the first tvo quarters,
but in the third tbe Cranbrook team
begin to show its want ot staying
power,   and   In   the  lnvermere goal
tender they were up against a stone
wall. Time end again this player
stopped what looked like aure goals.
Craobrook drew first blood aud from

from the most beautiful pieces of

Banff-Windermere
Highway
The following description of the
Banff-Windermere road appeared in
The Prospector of May 18th, 1912.
We,reprcd ce the same with the idea
ol letting our readers form tone
opinion of the tremendous possibilities that would accrue to the valley
upon its completion. At present there
has been a'out $300,000 srent on the
road and 'there yet remans a portion
of about 17 miles to be completed,
tbe aprroxlmate cost of wblch will
be a' out $250,000. It is ivith this
view in mind that the Boards of
Trade at a meet'ng assembled in
Athilmere on Monday, January 25th,
suprortrd the resolution passed by
the Windermere District Board of
Trade urging the Government to
ta'e immed'ate steps toward its
completion.
SCENIC HIGHWAY AN ASSET.
Work on Banff-Windermere Road Will
Be Commenced at Once—Splendid Scenery.
Work on the Banff-Windermere Scenic Highway which will when completed place Calgary's 4,000 automobiles
within nne hours' run of the Windermere country, ia to. be commenced
immediately t n.l rushed to early completion. This will provide scenic
route for automobile travel uneur-
passcd in the world and already several in Calgary are planning the construction of summer homes ln tbe upper country ln anticipation of the
consummation of this moto; road.
Tbe decision to constrict tbis road
wns arrived at by the provincial gov-
trnmmt last year as a result of, persistent overtures made by H. G. Parson, then member of the legislature
for Columbia rid ng, whose recommendation met the heaty approval
of Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister of
public works, laat August when tbe
"falhir ol good roads" toured this
district at Mr. Parson'* request to
look into the feasibility of the proposed road.
In an article in a recent number of
the British Columbia Magazine, W.W.
Foster, deputy minister of public
works, describee the proposed   scenic
Windermere; whilst the Dominion .ot-
eminent bears tho expense ol con-
struct'on within the national piirk,
Including n bridge over lio.v river.
"From Castle Mounta'n the Mind
reaches the Vermillion river via the
Vermillion Pass, and tollowing the
liver ri ns between two ol thc main
chains of tho Rockies, in closest possible proximity to a wonderf.il winlth
ot Alpine scenery. Coupled with the
luxurious vegetation of th» valley is
the fact that, owing to the fauna
hiving been so far hut little disturbed, it opens up a district for the nature lover hitherto ina"cessible excefpt
at great expense. From ths iont
where thi Vermillion joins the Kootonay there is a wonderful beauty in
the larklike nature of thc ever widening valley. At the mouth ol the
Simpson river, where m doubt a chalet will be erected at no distant date,
a panorama, including the valleys of
the Simpson and the Kootenay, with
mountain ranges beyond, is unfolded
that is probably without a peer.
"Turning south from the Kootenay
nnd using the Sinclair pass to reach
the Columbia valley, the road traverses scenery diverse in character,
but of equal beauty. At tbe exact
summit of the pass is to be found a
charming lake of the vivid emerald
color that is only seen in a mountain
lake at high elevation. A very remarkable feature of the lake, which
is so far unnamed, are its outlets.
One stream runs east and connects
with the Kootenay and thence flows
south, wh'le the other, tbe Sinclair,
Cows from the opposite tnd of the
lake directly west to the Colnnbia.
The Columbia flows nortb, mO ing a
d tour elf hundreds ot miles before its
waters and those of the Kontenay
again intermingle in southern British
Columbia.
"On Sinclair Creek is a caoyon of
extraordinary character, through
which the highway will pass by suspended bridging, and near the canyon
mouth is a hot spring of marvelous
curative powers. The efficacy of the
spring had an added mystery to the
Indian from the prairie, who in days
gone by brought his sick to drink tbe
canyon rock end in fact the whole
movntain ln the vicinity is a bright
brick: red in color.
"Continuing down the creek practically to its lunction with, tbe Columbia river, the existing GoMen-Cran-
brook road is reached, traversing the
famous, Columbia Valley, about which
bo much has been written.
"The total length of the Banff-Windermere read is about SO miles and It
is noteworthy that notwithstanding
the character of the country traversed an average maximum grude of
two and a half per cent, has been ob-
ta'ned." _AGE FOUR

wen. The completion of tbis line
will be a strong and important factor
in the coming prosperity of the whole
i f the Cranl 10 3k, Fernie and Columbia ridings. While the towns and cities along the Crows Nest have more
or less become solid and prosperous,
it is th^ settlement and the upbuilding of the vast agricultural and mineral resources of the Kootenay Valley along this newly completed railway that will now go forward with
great rapidity.
There will undoubtedly be a steady
increase of regulation and the opening up ol much undeveloped land;
among the ranchers there will'be unusual prosperity, more now than ever
because of the ready accessibility • to
tbe markets of Crar^rook, Fernie and
even to the cities of Alberta on the
south, and Go'den, Revelstoke and
other cities to the north.
The various towns along the Kootenay Central are taking up the matter of attracting the attention of
tourists to enjoy aome of its many
attractions. A lover of sport or travel, a tourist keen for adventure,
mountain climbing, hunting or fishing, restless lor new trophies   and a
ern portion of'the valley. The.easier
accessibility to these can be clearly
proven.
• w        • •
The mutual desire of the .tradesmen
and citizens generally of the Athalmer district' is to get into closer
touch with the people of Cranbrook
and other southern points. Before
the advent of the K. 0. R. such communication and relations as are at
present possible with outside points
were an utter impossibility. The
only means of access to the outer
world were by auto, stage or, in the
case of merchandise, by the river
boats from the north; this was a distinct disadvantage to the future development of the valley and one that
has been seriously felt by the inhabitants. As it is now, with the greater and easier access to the outer
world the valley may be regarded to
be on the eve of great prosperity.
Farm Economics
At the present prices ol land and
labor, farming is more a business
than ever it was. We do not assume
to be able to tell a farmer how to
grow crops, but there are certain elementary principles applicable to all
lines of productive industry, and lt
may do no harm to remind those
who till the roll i of them. A farmer's capital Ib Mb land. To a certain extent his stock and machinery
may be regarded as capital, but thB
fundamental capital is the land. An
estimate was made aome yearB ago
in the United States thit fully 25 per
cent of the land that had been cleared for cultivation wae not cultivated.
It was taken up by buildings, roads,
lanes, yards, fence corners and odds
and ends that for one reason or another were not in crop or pasture. A
certain portion of this unused area
cannot be tilled. Farmera must have
houses to live in, barns for their
stock and barnyards; but, eliminating these, there remains nearly 20
per cent., so it has been estimated,
that might be tilled but is not.
Whether that is too much or too little we sball not undertake to say.
Each farmer can answer the question
as it affects himself simply by looking around hia own premises and seeing what proportion the untilled portion of the tillable area bears to the
whole. Whatever that proportion
may be, it represents just bo much
Idle capital. Tbe first point to be
made is that all the tillable land
should be utilized, if possible. This
may seem like a needless thing to
say; but just take a look over any
farming community and you will be
surprised at the amount of capital
that is locked up in unproductive
tillable areas, large and small.
The second point   is   that   capital
should be made to yiold the largest
'possible returns. This is admitted
in every other business than farming-
but the importance of getting as
much as possiblo from each acre is
not by any means generally recognized. What we need in this country
is not bo much more cultivated land,
but better cultivated land. This
will be admitted without argument,
but we shall be met with the suggestion tint labor ia expensive, and So
it is; but we reply that by the highest cultivation and fertilization
greater crops can be produced by the
same number of tons of potatoes on
an acre ae could be raised on two
acres under a non-lntm3ive system,
!we hive, in tho first place, a smellier capital charge against the crop,
1 nnd In the second place a lower current expenditure, for'it costs less lc
labor to till and harvest tho crop
from one acre than from two.
Here, then, we have two fundamental principles of farm economics that
ought to be kept in mind: The whole
capital invested ought to be made,
proat-yieldlng if possible, and the
labor ought to be so employed that
it will get the greatest results from
the smallest area. Another principle is that of specialization. It is
generally wiser to make one department of agriculture the special feature of farm work. This leads to a
concentration of experience in one
line, which is very valuable. But,
and this is a fourth principle, the 1m-
i portance ot by-products should never
be lost sight of. Little things count
I in agriculture, as in, any other Une
,of business. A Victoria retail merchant was talking about his sales recently, and the person with whom he
was conversing said he suppoBed the
sales of candy did not amount to
much. The merchant named a figure
that was surprising, and added tbat
most of the sales were in 5-cent lots.
Another storekeeper, wbo sold papers
in addition to his regular business,
was asked if this trade was worth
while. He replied that he added "It
pays my rent." The merchant appreciates the little fraction il "by-
sales;" the farmer too often does not
appreciate the 'ittle by-products. —

A National  Measure
affecting the coming prosperity of Canada
A   PETITION
To tbe Honorable, the Speaker/ and the Members of the
House of Commons of Canada In Parliament aa-
sembled.
WHEREAS, it Is reasonable to expect _ great influx of
people from Europe after the cessation of tho terrible ccn-
flict, when twenty million men under arms will return to
peaceful avocations and many will naturally escape from
the huge burden of taxation, caused through military tyranny.
THEREFORE, your petiticners humlbly pray your honorable body to consider the enactment of legislation, whereby
Canada can be prepared to take advantage ot conditions
which will be favorable, ln assisting to attract desirable
settlers, who wlll assist in the development of Canada's
natural resources.
AND WHEREAS, the methods employed in attracting
good immigrants in the past have proved to be unsatisfactory, inasmuch as the very opposite to ths objective aimed
at was attained, through lack of wise precautions in making preparations to receive and care for the future welfare
of the immigrants, attracted by advertisements issued by
Governments and Corporations.
YOUR PETITIONERS therefore humbly suggest that effective measures should be taken as soon as circumstances
will permit, as follows:—
1. That legislation be enacted empowering the Government to borrow five hundred million dollars, more or lees,
(for the use of each of the undeveloped Provinces in the
West.
2. That provisions be made under careful control to
loan the funds to those engaged in agricultural pursuits, tor
the purpose of encouraging mixed farming, stock raicing,
and other vocations of husbandry, by which workers can ex-
trait wealth from ths earth without impoverishing the heritage ot mankind.
3. That loans be granted to deserving applicants on
good security, alwaya providing that tbe money advanced
shall be used for the purpose for which it is intended, on
easy terms of re-payment of the principal sum, say fifty
yeara, at 6 per cent, interest, more or less, according to tbe
price the Government of the time can realize on tbe bond
issue, but always preserving a margin to pay the cost of
the administration of the funds.
Your petitioners therefore humbly suggest that an arrangement be meds with the present banking Institutions of
Canada, which have spent great Bums in buildings and the
organization of competent staffs, wbo could handle the funds
to be dispensed economically and to the advantage of the
People, on a email margin of profit to be regulated by a
Royal Commission. The foregoing is submitted, not as a
Liberal nor Conservative, but as a NATIONAL MEASURE,
which will not embarass the existing nor any future Government.
It will attract the industrious workers of our race from
all parts to share in the profitable results of the development of the great west, which wll add to the prosperity
ot the whole Dominion ot Canada. INDUSTRIES FOLLOW
FARMERS. The flrat duty of tbe state ls therefore t0 encourage and assist the producers of the means of existence.
Your petitioners therefore humbly pray tbat due and
careful consideration should be given to the foregoing suggestions, for the good of the people who wish to ^become
industrious workers, but who lack the means of converting
the primitive wilderness into productive gardens with happy
and peaceful homes.
Your petitioners further respectfully draw your attention
to the fact tbat considerate and generous measures of the
k>:nd suggested will tend to disarm "the Anarchist," and
wlll satisfy tho SENSIBLE SOCIALIST as the flrat important step (not of s0cial retrogression) but of evolution approaching hia ideal, from the foundation upwards without
revolution.
Your petitioners further recommend that great railway
corporations should be Invited to work in unison with the
Government ln grant'ng easy and attractive terma for intending eettlers of the industrious class, thus providing a
permanent source of Income for railway companies and
their employees.
Your petitioners further urge your honorable members to
duly consider and enact measures for the nursing and fostering of in'ant industries, which will follow the advent of
millions of prosperous farmers, and thereby conserve the
wealth, trade and commerce of Canada for Canadlana.
The undsrslgnod petitionera therefore earnestly pray that
the foregoing suggestions be dealt with by the honorable
membera ae the Importance of the case deserve!.
The Lumber Industry
A   PETITION
To the Honorable the Speaker and the Members of the
House of Commons of Canada, in Parliament
assembled.
Your petitioners humbly pray for the immediate consideration of the following questions, which arc of momentouB
importance to the majority of the people of British Columbia, and more especially to the workmen, tbe merchants
and allied trades now most seriously affected hy the dumping
of American lumber on the only market available lor the
product of the interior of British Columbia.
Your petitioners do no ask for any bounty or favor such
as is granted to encourage other industries, but simply that
the most important industry of the Province of British Columbia shon'd receive th? same measure of justice and protection as enjoyed by othsr industries; the lumber trade is
the only one in Canada not protected.
Your petitioners, therefore, humbly pray that your honorable i body do without further delay d-al with this important matter and grant immediate relief to the suffering people, who cannot afford to wait for the appointment of the
Tariff Commission and the years ot consequent suspense.
Owing to overproduction of lumber in the United States,
and the depressed state of their markets, lumber is being
dumped into Canada at .much less thin thj cost of production; the cost of manufacturing is higher in British Columbia lowing to many dlsadvan ages, not the least being that
supplies of all kinds cost more than in th-; United States
and upon which Canadian lumbermen and oth»r consumers
have to pay duty.
Your petitioners, therefore, pray for the protection they
are justly entitled to rect-A<s from their legislators, and we
claim that it is their duty to protect all Canadian industries and that it is mott im.'jst to discriminate against
lumber alone.
Your petitioners, therefore, ask
1st. That lumber of all kinds (with the exception ol
hardwoods) should be dutiable;
2nd. Tbat an amendment to the Dumping Clause should
be enacted (forbidding the entry of lumber whzn invoiced below tbe cost ot production, or a provision made that a
duty should be imposed according to its true value.
3rd. That the present customs regii.ationa should be
strictly enforced forthwith, as the Americans are using a
machine called a "Canadian duty evader," and many millions of lumber are continually coming across the border and
allowed to escape paying duty, in consequence of which
great loss and suffering is felt throughout British Columbia,
whose trade is paralyzed, all th$ mills in the,interior being
closed down, and thousands of men anxiously waiting for
work, which cannot be given to thom until Parliament
grants the relief your petitioners pray for. Over thirty
thousand men and tbeir families a-e dependent on this industry, which is left open to the slaughter of our commercial enemies. The lumber industry in the past provided over
one-third of the total revenue of British Columbia. Her
smokeless chimneys and silent factories supply an eloquent
answer to some charges made on the floor of thi House
when it was stated by an honorable member "that British
Columbia mills paid large sums of interest on the watered
stocks of some atrocious flotations," whereas the interest
and dividends have not been earned, and cannot;possibly be
earned, under existing conditions.
The settlers on thj prairies receive little or no benefit b7
the importation of American lumber; it is true that very
high prices are being charged in certain country districts,
for which manufacturers are not responsible, and your petitioners pray that an enquiry be instituted at once to place
the onus where it belongs.
Incontrovertible evidence cm be readily produced to prove
the urgent necessity 'for prompt action, as the lumber market of Western Canada is in the bands of, and entirely at
tbe mercy of, American manufacturers.
THE LOSS OF EXPORT TRADE
And, whereas, during recent years the export trade in
lumber from British Columbia has declined from 90 per cent,
to 6 per cent, in the trade with Australia and New .Zealand
alone.
Your petitionera therefore suggested that such a serious
state of affaire Is worthy ot careful investigation, ae to the
cause of the loss of trade, and the remedy which should be
applied to regain it. One fact ls worthy of notice that 90
per cent, of the .export trade was done by British Columbia
whm subsidized tines were employed, tbe subsidies were discontinued and after that the trade declined.
The undersigned petitionera therefore earnestly pray that
tbe natural protectors, thc lrnorafrie representatives of Canadian citizens, in tbe name of justice, do without delay
adopt effective measures to foster and protect Canadian
trade and commerce for the benefit of Canada, and further,
that the forego'n? important matters shall bo raised above
party politics, and dealt with by the Honorable the Speaker, and ths Members of tbe Houso of Commons as n measure of National importance. PAGE SIX

MANY BUSINESS MEN STARTING
IN WESTERN  CANADA
During the year 1914 some 650 new
retail businesses started in towns on
the line of .the Canadian Pacific Rail-'j
way in Western Canada. The Indus-1
trial Branch of the Dei artment Ol \
Natural Resources, Canad'en Pacific
Railway, reports that in that period
nearly four thousand enquiries were
received from firms or individuals interested in business opportunities in
Western Canada, and 3,000 personal
interviewa held with possible Investors ln business or manufacturing undertakings. During the season representatives of the branch paid visits
to 690 cities, towns and villages in
connection with various business openings.

{ During 1914  Canada constructed   1,-

of second track. In the United States the record for the year was 1,-

HEALTH PAST FIFTY
Cartful diet is of utmost importance to
men and women past fifty years of age;
it keeps up their strength, and the oil-
food in Scott's Kmulsion is a nourishing
food, a curative medicine anil a sustaining
tonic to regulate the functions.
It contains the medicinal fats of pure
cod liver oil iml science proves that they
furnish twice as much energy as other
foods—then too, it creates pure blood,
sharpens tbe appetite, relieves rheumatism, strengthens the body mid alleviates
the ailments due to declining years.
Scott's is free from wines, alcohol or
bai tuful drugs.   Beware of substitutes.
CANADIANS BUY THEIR
OWN BONDS
For the first time io their history
Cf n dian people bought most of the
Canadian municipal bonds last year.
The amount of Canadian municipal
bends bought in Canada totaled .34,-
483,000, while $32,000,000 worth were
disposed of in Great Britain and
$12,080,000 worth in the United States. Ths fact that Canadians are buying up their own bonds is evidence
tbat tbey not only have ccnldence In
their own country, but bave considerable capital with which to support
that confidence. Owing to the fact
lhat (Ireat Britain is now engaged in
th? fnnclng of the European war,
Cnnada will undoubtedly 'ook irore
to the United Stntes as a market
for 'municipal bonds, wblch will result
in greater investigation and a better
