Make the Selection   Unanimous
Receiving a majority at the Brat
ballot Robert P. Green vas yesterday
chosen Conservative candidate ln the
forthcoming Kootenay bye election by
one ot the largest and most represent
atlve conventions ever held in the rid
log. Dr. Bonnell ol Fernie and C. R.
Hamilton, K.O., of Nelson, were also
placed In nomtugtion.
Rising to its feet the convention
showed its enthusiasm by giving tare
rousing cheers lor Mr.Oreen when tho
result-van announced and (ollowed It
with another standing cheer lor Mr.
Hamilton and Dr. Donnell when the
lormer In a graceful speech Uvlurod
tbat he would vote lor Mr.Oreen aid,
il be wished it,work lor him and then
moved that the nomination be made
unanimous. Dr. Bonnell expressed
similar sentiments in a telegram read
at the convention.
Of the 135 possible delegates Us

In opening the meeting Mnyor An-
nable eipressed his pleasure at seeing
such a large and representative at tun
dance. The delegates present he said
were the leading Conservatives ol
Kootenay and the laces that he saw
before him augured well (or the lu-
ture ol the party in this electoral
Blnce the convention which nominated A. H. Ooodeve last August an
election had been held, the result ol
which must have been highly satisfactory to all Conservatives.to whom
September 21, 1911, would be n date
never to be forgotten.
A provincial election bad also been
lougbt with the result that British
Columbia now held the unique position among the provinces ol Canada;
in neither tbe provincial nor Dominion parliaments had British Columbia
a Liberal representative. II the members ol the party continued to work
together he loresaw a long continued
success belore the Conservative party
in tbe province.
Aa mnyor ol Nelson he extended to
the delegates on behalf ol the cltlaena
a hearty welcome to the city and expressed the hope that every delegate

Resolutions—A. B. Grace, Craabrook; James Anderson, Kaslo; CR. i
Hamilton, K.C., Nelson. . i
In placing the name of Mr, Creen 1
liefore the convention Harold BeloUB j
ol Nelson referred to the liiirli regard
with which  the people of  Kootenay j
regarded the lute member.   When he I
had heard ol his resignation he had
realized that lt would be dllllcult to;
find a man who could eqlinl .Mr. Clood
eve as a representative nt Ottawa for
Kootenny and ho felt confident that
Mr,  tlreen,   il elected,  would be en-
tlrely capable gnd titled to llll the
position vacated  hy the new railway
' commissioner.
1    He, the speaker, considered  himself
] un oldtinier; ho had come to Kootenny lu 188°, tint when ho came down
the  Columbia  river  he found  Green
I brothers doing business in the conn
! try. And before they had been on
the main line.     Mr.  Heloiis referred
! to Mr. Green's residence nt AihBworth
I and Kaslo and to his good work us
provincial member for the main lake
Ills record as minister of lands and
works was familiar to all, tint there
was one thing he would like to recall
Everyone in Kootonny was very in
terested in the lumber industry  and
I its prosperity und it was Mr. tlreen
Hint the lumbermen, ami everyone in
Kootonny, hud to credit, with the introduction ol legislation which hud
removed many of the difficulties
which at tho time confronted the him
hermen and placed the industry on n
basis of permanency.
In 1906 Mr. tlreen had taken up his
residence at Victoria, continued Mr.
Helotis, but hn would maintain that
he not only hnd been for many years
a local man but was still a local mnn
in all parts of the provlncnon account of the prominent part ho had
taken for many yenrs in contributing
to the success of Conservative principles In British Columbia.
In conclusion Mr. Melons ropoalod
that as Kootenay bail been so fortunate In Mr. Goodeve it was neces-
riiry for a selection to ho made of
sonic man fitted to llll his place."Mr,
Green Is a man ol lorce, strength nnd
character, who will preserve the pres
tige Mr. Guodove gave to Kootonny
at Ottawa and continue lor Kootenny
try lu Canada thnt a protective duty
should be placed   on   rough   lumber
coming into Canada.

t.he    glorious   heritage   Mr. Goodeve
has handed down," he said.
Seconding the nomination, John
Lyon of Revelstove snld that Kootenay wat) a big riding and needed a big
man an its representative at Ottawa.
Mr. Green, he considered, was the
nian to till the position.
Archibald Leitch, u Kernie delegate
nominated Dr. Honnell, who, he said,
was nn oldtinier and prominent iu
public life and as a member of the
Conservative party in Must Kootenay
(ieorge Pedler seconded and made a
plea to the convention to select an
Kast Kootenay man. The eastern
portion of the riding had never yet
heen the residence of the member at
Ottawa and although thnt district
had not tost anything by it and had
always been given a square deal he
suggested that It was1 Kast Kootenay
turn. Hu explained that Dr. Donnell
was unable to be present on account
of his duties as a member of the British Columbia medical council. He
read a telegram from Dr. Bonnell say
mi' that he would accept the nomination if offered and pledging himself
Lo support the choice of the convention.
A. 8. Horswell nominated Mr. Ham
[lion and after paying a tribute to |
Mr. Goodeve referred to the Stirling
■nullities and character of his choice.

Hamilton as just the type of mnn
thnt Kootonny wanted at Ottawa.

After having been buried for seven

The Dead Sea
In shape the dead sea resembles
an elongated oval, some forty-seven
miles long, and about, ten miles wide
at its greatest breadth. One of the
most remarkable facts about it Is
thnt its surface lies 1,300 feet deep
iu places, it means that Us greatest depth reaches a point, no less than
2,(100 feet, below the waters of the
Mediterauean. It is famed for the
saltneSs and bitterness of its wafers,
which are extremely dense, containing
U.J per cent of solid matter and being
bulk for hulk, heavier than the human body. How dense the water is
may be realized from the following
facts: In a ton of water from the
Caspian sea there are eleven pounds
of salt; in the Baltic, eighteen
pounds; in the Black sea, twenty-six
pounds; in the Atlantic, thirty-one
pounds; in the English Channel, se*

Proper   Treatment   of   Customers   a

important business detail, a great asset hi getting under the buyer's skin.
To my mind, amiability and a line
discernment of the wishes of the individual customer are the only real
wenpons with which the small business man cap hope to beat his big-
Eer competitor. Courtesy goeH farther and does more to hold the buyer
than bargain sales. I find that people would rather deal with a small

THK DOMINION M*ATCH COMPANY, LTD., now owns and linn the exclusive right of use tor the
Dominion of Canada of a new process of manufacturing matches, known as the Parker Continuous
Process, hy the use of which a wide variety of cheap raw material, auch as alder, hemlock, cotton-
wood, fir and spruce, which is found in great abundance, is now being made available for manufacturing match sticks; materials which can he obtained for the mere fraction of the cost of white pine,
now being used by the old Die methods; and by the use of these cheap raw materials, and the labor
saving features of the process, the cost of manufacturing safeties, parlors, and double-tipped matches
is reduced,  approximately, 50 per cent.
Comparative cost of manufacturing matches under the Parker's Continuous Process nnd otber
methods, per case of 144 boxes, containing 500 matches each, which wholesale for $4.50 per case.

of a carload a day of 500 cases, there would be a profit of $1,415.00. Kstiniating three hundred work
Ing days, there would be a gross profit ot $424,500.00, or 42 per cent on the entire capital stock. In
addition to the profits to lie derived from the operation ot the parent company, stockholders will also participate in the earnings of subsidiary plants, which conservatively estimated should aggregate
one million dollars per annum.   These subsidiary plants will be established in the eastern provinces.
This is an opportunity of availing yourself of an investment that only comes once In a lifetime.

Our object in offering a limited amount of thia stock to the citizens of Cranhrook Is for the purpose ot creating a market for the matches, as every stocknolder will be a booster.

cnuid softly aud without greet in t?. She
unified as she came, aud as tlie Deacon
lug to shear him, but bad been shorn.
"Married to you for thirty-Ave years,
and yet I never suspected you knew a

"I knowed you  played checkers aud

Kotlitng-not n word. Of wbnt use?
Neither Mrs. Dolby nor Mrs. Thompson nor any other Mrs. ln the Tillage
could be niude'to understand tbnt it
isn't the playing of poker that constitutes tbe crime. It's (lie cussing of
Ihe oilier feller for not having n full

No Repent.nee.
No. Ilio deacon couldn't suy even to '
himself that ho was—that Is, lie was t
sorry he hadn't bad the luck to skin
Iho peddler instead of being skun. but
I here wns nothing else to call for regrets.
"I promised Mrs. Thompson Unit If |
you got dowu on your knees tind snld j
you wero sorry and would never do It
tgnlu I'd maybe live ou, aud so I'm
giving you a chance."
It wns such a chance ns no one husband In a hundred ever hns, but tbe
deacon didn't Inke advantage ot it. lu
fact, at Ihnt very moment he wns hoping lo himself thnt the peddler would
show up ngnin some dny aud not have
bis rabbit's foot with him.
"I hnve spoke. Samuel, and It lias
done uo good," said Mrs. Dolby as she
turned away. "You won't beg my pardon, nnd you hain't sorry. It's too
much to expect Ihnt a pirnte would he.
Nothing remains but to say farewell.
I go up to jump down the well!"
Suicide Postponed.
She didn't start thut lime, however.
After Inking two steps up tbe stuirs
she backed down to ask:
"Samuel, do you think there'll be any
Ice down there?"
The deacon sat tight.
"Aud will the wnler be very cold?  If
ron think so 1 might bent a b'ilcr full
of water on the stove nnd then bold I
my head In It until death came."
The deacon snt tighter.
"Very well, Samuel. I said the well,
nnd It shall be lho well,   (*-o o-d b-y!"
Wllh Ihnt Mrs. Dolby ran upstairs, |
and he beard ber open nud closo tbo

wheu he went up, and she sat by the
stove with her feet in the ovcu. He
may bave raised one eyebrow question-
ingly, for she sold:
"1 hnve decided lo wnit until tomorrow und then take laudanum. Do you
want me to cut your toe nulls tonight?"
raugbt the sound n shudow crossed his

"Samuel," came h ghostly voice at
bis elbow, "do you realize that within
an hour from this you will be a widower?"
Th. Deacon I. Calm.
It was a startling declaration, but
It- didn't affect tbe deacon much. He
tossed a potato from one bund to the
other nud wondered what neighbor
bad dropped In aud gossiped while he
had beeu dowti there. Mrs. Dolby took
a scat on nn empty crock that hud been
turned bottom up and continued:
"Yes, Samuel, within an hour! Then
I shall be gone, and you can cut up us

So be bad been cutting up again, nnd

Some Curious Things Happen at Ihe
Big Gun Nflv.il Practices.
That  hoary   old   saw,   "Yen   can't
pleaso  everybody,"  is curiously  de* I
moi.straled in big-gun living practice. j
Wben for any reason it is suspended,
the experts dec lure that Un country is j
going to lho bow-wows; when it takes
place, complaints pour into Whitehall
by the ton.
Many of these are iu consequence of
damage done to property, which always suffer.- more or loss through concussion wave?. After the trial" of the
38-ton guns on Seaforth Battery there
was an enormous destruction of glass
on the other Hide of the river, and
the local glaziers had the time of
their lives.
Still greater damage wiu done at
Dover hy tho firing of the ii„'( guns.
The vibrations were so great that in
the neighborhood of Shakespeare's
Co" windows were broken, ceilings
brought down, and pictures and ornaments shaken off walls, while at the
Coastguard Station practically every
lumso was damaged,
Shoe moss, again, had a terrific
shaking the last time tlic lug guns iu
the Ravelin Battery wore fired.
Though the wind was blowing seaward at thn time, the concussion
waves shattered some of thn plate-
glass windows of business promises
and drove in several wi lid 0W* panes
in tbe public school.. In a few private houses, too, ceilings felt with an
alarming crash.
For much of the breakage of glass,
however, the public havo only themselves to blame. Though lho authorities give notice ol firing practice, and
suggest thnt windows be opened,
many householders will not take this
simple precaution, with the result
that they have lo call in the glazier.
At Portsmouth thoy know better.

Tile erratic behavior of projectiles

of which are uf h Very serious character. A yenr or two ago a shot from
Shoebury Battery struck the water not
more than twenty yards from a small
boat containing nine persons. No reason could be discovered for tiie abnormal conduct of the shell, but it was
conjectured that it ricocheted from
some limiting substances.
A more remarkable incident happened off Dungeness. The crew ot an
Antwerp vessel went ashore, and on
walking across the beach discovered
a large shell. Thinking it would make
an interesting memento, tbey look it
to the boat, and conveyed it to their
ship. A day or two later they began
cleaning it, whereupon it exploded,

Scenic Highway An Asset
Work on BanS-Wtndermere Road Will
Be Commenced at Once—Splendid Seenery
Work on the Banff-Windermere Seen
le Highway which will when completed place Calgary's 4000 automobiles
within nine hours run of the Windermere country, is to be commenced
immediately and rushed to early com
uletlon. This will provide u scenic
routs for automobile tr.wel unsurpassed In the world and already sep-
eral ln Calgary nre planning the construction of summer home! in the upper country in anticipation nf the
consummation of this motor rond.
The decision to construct this road
was arrived ot by the provincial gov-
! eminent last year as a result of persistent overtures made by H. O. Pnr-
, son, then member of the legislature
for Columbia riding, whose recommen
dntlon met the hearty approval of
Hon. Thomas Taylor, minister ol pub
lie works, last August when tbe
"father of good roads" toured this
i district at Mr, Parson's request to
look into the feasibility of the pro-
; posed road.
In an article In a recent number of
the British Columbia Magiuine. W.W,
.Foster,   deputy    minister  of   public
' works, describes the proposed scenic
automobile highway as follows:
|   "A further   undertaking   for  which
j provision ls made ln this year's esti-
' mutes Is the construction of a motor
rond from Castle Mountain to n point
nenr Windermere,   connecting at the
one end with the Calgary-Dan" road
nnd nt the other with the eilatlng
Oolden-Crnnbrook road, thus providing a round trip, or an alternative
route to the proposed lnter-provlncinl
rond from Calgary via BanB National Park.    The coBt of building this
road, which was surveyed last summer, is jointly shared by the provincial   government   and  the   Canadian
Pacific from its summit through to
Windermere; whilst the Dominion gov
ernment  bears  the  expense  of construction within   the  national  park,
Including a bridge over Bow river.
From Castle Mountain the road
reaches the Vermillion river via the
Vermillion Pass, and following the
river runs between two ol the main
chains of tbe Rockies, in closest possible proximity to a wonderful wealth
of Alpine scenery. Coupled with the
luxurious vegetation of the valley ls
the fact that, owing to the fauna
having been so tar but Uttled dlsurb-
ed, it opens up a district for the nature lover hitherto inaccessible except
at great expense. From the point
where the Vermillion joins the Kootenay there is a wonderful beauty In
the pnrklike nature of tbe ever widen
Ing valley. At the mouth of the
Simpson river, where no doubt a cba
let will be erected at no distant date
a panorama, including the valleys ol
the Simpson and the Kootenay, with
mountain ranges beyond, is unfolded
that is probably without a peer.
"Turning south trom the Kootenay
and using the Sinclair pass to reach
the Columbia valley, the road traverses Bcenery diverse in character, but
of equal beauty. At the 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
ls so tar unnamed, are Its outlets.
One stream runs east and connects
with the Kootenay and thence flows
south, while the other, the Sinclair,
flows from the opposite end of the
lake directly west to the Columbia.
The Columbia flows north, making a
detour ot hundreds of miles before Its
waters and those ol the Kootenay a-
gain intermingle in southern British
"On Sinclair Creek is a canyon ot
extraordinary character, through
which the highway will pass by suspended bridging, and sear the canyon
mouth is a hot spring of marvelous
curative powers. The efficacy ol the
spring had an added mystery to the
Indian from the prairie, who in days
gone by brought his sick to drink the
canyon rock and in fact the whole
mountain in the vicinity is a bright
brick red in color,
"Continuing down the creek practically to Its junction with the Columbia river, the existing Oolden-Cran-
brook road Is reached, traversing the
lamous Columbia Valley, about which
so much has been written.
"The totnl length of the Banff-Windermere road Is about 80 miles and it
Is noteworthy that notwithstanding
the character of the country traversed nn average maximum grade ot
two and a half per cent has been obtained.

Recall of Umpire's Decisions.
Here ii. a wily of adding to the ii^-
tractiveness of our national game.
Soma offsetting economy of time
could be had in reduction of innings
to seven. "Striker out," the umpire
declares. "Doubt It," shout the spectators. "How many challenge ihat
decision?" cries the megaphone man;
a hundred rise, as the instantaneous,
electrical tabulator reveals. A test
vote is orieretl. All in favor of the
umpire's decision stand. Counted.
Opposed stand. Counted, The decision rendered, and the game proceeds.
The umpire would still be a convenience. He could announce the uncontested things. Public sentiment
would project him in going somewhat further. , Everybody would want
to "play ball." Fanciful or captious
challenges of his decisions would become unpopular. The burden of
proof would eventually find lodgement, on the critics. Perhaps his
position would be more secure than
now. Who knows? Let us try IT!—

After having been buried for seven
years in the desert, the body of a
Herman trooper named Rogge lias
been found by a flying patrol In a
Bhifting sand dune near Koltnanskop,
German South-U'est Africa. The unfortunate trooper had beeu sent to
convey tbe mails from Luderitzbucht
tn sonic remote Inland stations. He
never arrived.
His route lay via the Ukama
Springs, a small oasis, and Irom
notes found ln a poeketbook on the
body it appears that he lost Bis bearings, owing lo desert mirages, and
failed to make the Ukama Springs.
Ile wandered about, aimlessly for
days, without Sliding his way.
His last note was lo tho effect that
he was suffering fearful torments

The First Savings Bank.
The hundredth anniversary of lhe
founding of the first savings bank of
the modem type waa celebrated last
year. The founder was a Presbyterian village pastor. The minister of
a church at 'Ruthwell. Scotland, distressed at. seeing the wastefulness of
the laboring people In his parish, offered in the year 1810 lo pay fj pet-
cent, interest to anybody who would
leave savlrgs with lilm.
The minister, the Rev. Henry Duncan, hod the ffnaneinl genius to make
a go of his original project, and he
was able a few years later to record
iu n pamphlet on "A Parish Savings
Rank' a very remarkable betterment
of economic conditions in his neighborhood—less drinking and more
thrift. The pamphlet attracted wide
attention, the experiment was Initialed elsewhere, nnd the vast savings-
bank system of the civilized world
hns sprung from hit root. The town
of Rulhwc*) felt It owed so much to
Mr. Duncan lhat In the yenr 184(1 II

Bees and Fertilization
Given before the Members of the Cranbrook-Fernie
Farmers' Institute
By T. 8. aiLL
Ladles and Gentlemen:—
I prepared thia paper a lew years
ago (or this Institute, but tor some
reason It did not appear in the Department at Victoria so I hope revised and written it again tor this evening. It Is intended to show the relation ot the honey bee (apis tnt'lli-
flca or live bee) to the production ol
cropa, not particularly as a honey
producer, but a service a thousand
times more Important to the farmer
tbe gardener, and tbe fruit grower.
In the Ilrst part I shall try to show
you the scientific principle Of fertilization that the plants are dependent
upon for the life principle of the need,
thus the propagation of species. The
second part deals with the work the
honey bee performs ln helping nature
to fulfil its law of the cross polllui-
nation of flowers.
In flowers thero are parts analous
to those Indicative ot sei in the
animal kingdom, two parts arc essential to the production of the seed, the
pistils and stamens. The pistels are
composed of three parts and usually
occupy a central position in the flower. The stile is merely the long
neck that supports tbe stigma or
The ovary ls down in the centre of
the flower, inside the ovary ts the
nucleus which is filled with proto
plasm (called the mother cell). In
the nucleus ts found the emhryanal
or seed vessicle.
The stigma Ih situated on the top
of the stem and is covered with a
sticky substance. The stamens are
usually arranged around tne pistil,
often many in number; on the top of
each is a sac or little pouch inside ol
which Is formed the pollen dust.
These when ripe, burst open, either ol
themselves or by the agency of the
wind and insects, and scatter the pollen all around. The pollen sometimes called fertilization dust, con-
plats of very minute grains of nitrogenous matter of nearly the same
composition aa wheat pea or rye
flour, and vary in size from 1-200 to
1-2000 ol an Inch in diameter. Some
flowers, principally those thut depend
on the wind to distribute it, produce
pollen In large quantities und if a
haul duah Is shaven when the pollen
Is ripe the golden dust can be plainly
seen falling ln a shower.
These flowers, as they may be called
do not secrete nectar to attract insects but are furnished with little
shelves on which the pollen collects
aa the sacs burst and when stirred
by the wind the dust Is blown oil and
carried away to some distance to the
other plants of the same kind.
Now, suppose the pistils nnd stain
ens become ripe at the same time,
the pollen sacs break and scatter the
dust, a grain adheres to the sticky | ticulturlst.
surface of the stigma, absorbs mois-: Pollen is
ture and commences to grow, sen.ls
out a tiny tube which penetrates the
stigma and extends down to the
ovary through the long stem, through
this tube the fertilisation substunct
of the pollen grain Is transferred. Iti

which brings ua to the second part.
I will not go deeply into bee culture
ln this paper, only In relation to the
distribution of pollen from flower to
A colony of bees contains the workers, the queen bee and nt some
seasons the drones or male bees. The
queen is the only perfect female in
the hive, she lays) all the eggs to produce the young, even aa many aa MOO

Tbe workers arc undeveloped females

and pollen from tbe fields. They are
provided with a honey sac and pouch
is on their hind legs, where they
store and carry pollen; their bodies
are also covered with hair to which
the pollen adherea.
As each egg produces a bee, worker
bees nre raised in great quantities,
the egg remains in the cell of the
comb three days before hutching,then
Is fed on it digested food from the
nurse bee for three days, the following ail days honey is added; then
sealed over the cell nnd remains in
the chrysallia state twelve days.
It then euts its way out a (nil
sized worker bee, though a little
fuzzy-looking. Bo it takes only twen
ty-one days from tbe time the egg is
laid by the queen until tbe cell If
again ready for another egg. The
worker bee remains In the hive until
about the ISth day, then makes Ita
flrst trip to the fields and continues
to gather honey and poHen until
about forty-live days old when it dies
of old nge. They live longer tn a
state of Inactivity, so in a semi-dormant state live through the winter
on the surplus honey collected in the
summer season.
Honey is 80 per cent food and 20
per cent wnter as compared to beet
iteak with 30 per cent solid food and
potatoes with 5 per cent. It ls also

and will fly to their hives. Sometimes they may be seen suspended by
their wings at the mouth ot a flower
collecting pollen with the front feet
nnd passing It on to tbe poaches on
tbeir hind legs. Thn vibrations ot
the wines causes pollen covering the
body of the bee to be scattered over
the stigmas. I have seen bees return
ing tn the hive so covered with pollen dust as to be completely unrecognizable nnd must have at least 50.000
grains of pollen adhering to the body
You cannot calculate the amount ol
work a bee so covered will do ln help
ing nature In croas-pollonating the
flowers visited. A colony ol bees
may contain 50,000 workers, which
have been known to collect ten the.
of honey in u day. One pound of
honey   ia   equal   to 7000 bee loads.
A bee may visit from 4 to 20 flowers for one load ; so this
colony alone would visit 700.000 flowers In collecting the 10th of honey.
The bees of an apalry of titty colon-
lea could visit 35.000.000 in number.
A flower will bloom three days or
more, ao may have over fifty visits
to Itself alone, so It stands to reason
a flower so often visited by bees with
bodies covered with pollen has a very
small chance of missing polllnization
Orchards have been known to produce double the amount of fruit
when a few colonies of bees have
been placed conveniently near.
A case is cited where ten acres ot
mlied healthy trees, located such a
distance trom any wood so the chance
of being visited by wild bees was
doubtful, blosaoms were abundant
but yield of fruit was small and poor
In quality. An apiary waa stationed near to the orchard and the follow
Ing year tbe crop was so heavy tbe
limbs had to be propped to prevent
them breaking, and every subsequent
year the yield was abundant. An
experiment wns tried In nn orchard
ot pear trees, a small tree was selected all the stamens removed and the
flowers thinned to 1-6 and the tree
closely covered with cheesecloth.
Pollen waa gathered from another
variety of pear and dusted on the
atigmas with a brush and the result
wae a heavy crop, far the heavier
than any tree ol better quality alongside of It. Other eiperimenta bave
been tried and the result showed
double the crop of better fruit where
flowers have been crosa-polltnnted.
Bees are kept in green-bouses where
winter fruit and vegetables ure raised
otherwise they could not he grown.

For Protection of Forests
At an Informal conference held tbls

branch ot the interior department
and counsel for the British Columbia
government practically all of the regulations for the protectloaof forests
from the rnvages of Are drafted by

agreed to either as drafted or in a-
mended form.
After hearing the representations of
Clive Pringle, counsel for the British
Columbia Government, it was agreed
not to bring Into effect the proposed
regulation calling upon rnilwaya oper
atlng In British Columbia to adopt
oil burning engines. Mr. Pringle represented to the conference that the
adoption of the regulation would do
great injury to the mining industries
of British Columbia. He said that
thnt several of the mines depended
entirely upon the sale of coal to the
railways snd would have to close
down if they ceased to take their
The proposed regulation which
would have prevented railways using
lignite coal in engines was not agreed
to. It was held over to give the
railways an opportunity to make further representations and also to give
tbe commission a chance to look into

jurisdiction of tbe board was challenged by counsel for the railways.
D'Arcy Scott presided at the conference, the other commissioners pres
ent being Dr. Mills, Prof. McLean and

conservation waa represented by

of Alberta and Saskatchewan and the
prairie provinces to withdraw trom

Dnrinnii nf Calgary, Alta., publisher
of the News Telegram, at the Spokane hotel on Monday, "and tbe liberal papers are freely commenting on
the spirit of discontent manifested.
"The defeat of reciprocity measure,
together with the fart that the banks
of Western Canada are controlled by
the financiers of the eastern provinces
who are milking the country without
contributing to its development, and
the further fact tbat the government

with public money, to provide adequate transportation facilities for the
rapidly populating prairie district*,
Is responsible for tbe unrest. Tbe
United Farmers, an organization of
the agriculturists ot the region, were
