Forestry Association
Convention at  Victoria
The fourteenth annual convention
ol the Canadian Forestry Association
for the reading nntl discussing of papers, and the passing of resolutions
based then-oil, will he held upon the
invitation of the government of British Columhla in the City of Victoria,
B.C., on Wednesday. Thursday and
Friday, Sept. 4, 5 & 6, 1912. Sir
Richard McBride, Premier of the
Province, and Hon. W. R, Ross, Minister of Lands, are taking n personal
interest in thin convention, and will
address the delegates upon this suh-
iect which is now the uppermost one
in British Columbia. While papers
and addresses will naturally deal
with matters that concern British
Columbia, they will not be confined
to this, and in every way the convention will be national in character
and embrace every part of Canada.
THE PROGRAM
The program now in course of preparation will include addresses of the
most practical character Ity leaders
in forestry and lumbering in Canada
and the United States. It iB proposed to open with a reception to dele
gates on the evening of September 4,
followed hy regular sessions on Sept.
5 and 6, at 10 a.m., and 2:110 p.m.
The regular sessions will be held in
tbe commodious ball of the Alexandra Club, which is centrally located
and in every way fitted for such a
gathering. On the afternoon of Sept.
6, it is expected there will be an outdoor entertainment in which the ladies may participate. The details
will be announced in the program issued at Victoria.
WHAT IS THK CANADIAN FORESTRY ASSOCIATION
In 1910 the vnlue of the forest products of Canada was $100,000,000 or
over $22 for every inhabitant.
Every one can see how this touches
him. It we go on as in the past,
slashing and burning our forests,
this immense industry will be lost in
a few years, and with it will go all
of its subsidiary industries. (Ireat
as this loss will be it will be exceeded hy the loss to our agriculture, waterpowers   and navigation
On the other hand the amount of
land in Canada suited only to trees
in such that ir the forests are maintained in these areas and properly
worked the resulting product will not
only keep every existing wood-working industry going for ever, but these
industries can be greatly increased
without using more than the annual
growth. At the same time our agriculture, navigation and waterpowers
will be enabled to reach their highest
development.
The question is shall we allow this
great resource to be destroyed, or
shall we save and develops it.
The Canadian Forestry Association
is the national organization, the purpoee of which is to stir up the peo-
| pie and through them the govern-
' meats to do their duty in this respect. It has done a good deal since
it Btarted in 1900, but it could do
with more members and more means
It holds conventions in all parts of
Canada, publishes its annual report,
and the Canadian Forestry Journal,
provides illustrated lantern lectures,
and in other ways agitates this question. If you think this iu a worthy
and patriotic object and are not already a member you are invited to
become one. The membership fee is
one dollar per year Uife membership)
$10.),and this entitles you to all the
publications of the association as
well as to attendance and voting privileges at annual meetings. Address,
.lames Lawler, Secretary, Canadian
Bldg., Ottawa.
THE PLACE OF MEETING
It is needless to go into details in
regards to the many attractions of
British Columbia and the Pacific
Coast. The mountains, the great
foreBts of big trees, the mines, the
fisheries, the fruit regions, all add
to that attraction, but the central
feature will be the convention and the
opportunity to see the methods of
handling tbe immense timbers of the
Pacific Coast. Victoria, the Convention city, has a population of 45,000,
te delightfully situated and is famed
for its beautiful environs. There are
many handsome buildings of which,
of course, the Provincial Parliament
Buildings are the chief. Vancouver,
through which all visitors from the
east will pass, now has a population
with its surburbs, of 140,000, and Is
very rapidly growing. There is Immense railway development in the
Fraser Vnlley, and connected with
the city itself besides its great commercial and building nctivity there
are such famous spots as Stanley
Park and Oapilano Canyon.
RAILWAY   ARRANGEMENTS
Arrangements have been made with
the railways which enable the Association to promise a rate of a single
fare for the round trip to all attending the Convention from all points
in Canada. This rate is, of course,
open to ladies attending the Convention.
In order to participate in this re
duced fare, delegates must purchase
first-class one-way tickets to Victoria
B.C., nnd secure certificates to that j
effect on the Standard Certificate
form from the railway agent Belling
the same. Railway ticket agents are |
supplied with these certificates and
nre instructed to issue them on application.
These certificates will be presented
to the Secretary at the meeting, and
after being signed by him will entitle
the delegate to a free return ticket
upon the presentation ot the certificates to the Railroad ticket agent at
Victoria.
Women's Institute
A very enjoyable and Instructive
meeting of the Women's Institute
was held in the Carmen's Hall on
Tuesday afternoon, There was a
good attendance of members and two
or three friends dropped in to sec
the cordial spirit that is exhibited
at the Institutes gatherings, also to
take  part   In   the work being done.
The afternoon was given over to
the lecture! and demonstrator (or
the day, Mrs. Doran. Mrs. Doran is
tecognlscd as being an expert In the
culinary art and her address and
practical demonstration had been
looked forward to for some time upon this topic ot "The Making
and the Preparation of Salads"
"No absolute rule, said Mrs. Doran
can ever he laid down for the making
of salads, the one rule applying to
nil salads Ih to have them cold and
to nerve them daintily. Salad is
not a today or tomorrow luxury, it
claims every season for its own. It
finds a place for itself in winter and
summer, spring and autumn In the
dally menus of the wise; especially
at this time ot the year, is thu crisp,
cold salad invaluable, both as a stlm
ulent to the appetite and as a substitute for heavy meat dishes, if Its
ingredientH are fish, cheese, eggs or
nuts.
"In salad making, the prime ncces-
Ity is fresh material— fresh oil,
fresh eggH. fresh everything, the
next is that they should all be cold,
the colder the better.

Only A Few More Days
Of Contest Left-Candidate Will Close
Their Books on Saturday Night
at Nine o'clock
Finish Promises  to be Close and Exciting and the Plan of Campaign
Outlined by various Contestants will be of Sweeping Nature
—Ballot Box is Ready and the Judges have been   Selected—A little   Extra Effort during the
Remaining   Days May Make
You the Winner.
The "Prospector's" voting contend will clone next Saturday night at 9
o'clock. His more days and the battle of ballots, which has occupied
the attention ot the candidates and the public, will be decided, and the
result will be made known.
Only a few more days and the winners will be declared. Only a few
more dayB and the suspense will be all over. But, during these few days
enough work may be done to change the position of the leading candidate and make the result different than it would be If tbe eud were tonight.
THB    OUTLOOK
Perhaps there are some who can predict with a degree of accuracy wbu
will be the winner of the grand price Automobile and the Piano, but the
Prospector cannot even venture to guess the names of those who will be
among the fortunate contestants.
Tt will be one of the closest contest finishes ever known in Canada.
Those who will win will not have a very big margin, while tbe losers will
he close enough to the successful ones to take away the sting of defeat.
All candidates have friends who are confident that the issue is not iu
doubt. Kncli one of the contestants is picked to win the capital prize but
Miss Wise, Miss Roberts, Master Pye and J. B. Henderson, seem to be the
favorites. However, there might be a dark horse in the race who will
come down the home stretch, and that "dark horse" may be one of the
out-of-town candidates. The Fort Steele Contestant is doing big work
and may have a big surprise in store for all.
There will doubtless be surprised candidates when the votes are all
counted. Those who are surprised may not be the winners either. The
candidates who fail to tnke advantage of the opportunity to secure every
possible combination subscription will be the surprised ones. Others will
lose because tbey hnve spent too much time in wondering how many votes
their competitors will hnve wheu the final count is over.
Judges of Contest
The following well known gentlemen will audit the votes on the closing
night of the contest. These names are sufficient guarantee to the candidates and public of the justice of the awards that will be made.
T. B. O'OONNBl.. Manager of the Royal Bank.
Mr. ROBRRT McCREBRY, ot McOreery Bros.
Mr. JAS. llAVIKS, Manager of 41 Meat Market.

A despatch from Salem, Oregan,

because of its rotten financial condition.
Investigation of the company's assets revealed a very unstable condition. The company's statement showed mortgage loan assets in the sum
of $153,288.16, and the insurance commissioner, after investigation, refused
to accept a dollar of this amount,
thus practically wiping out the com

Besides these, not more than $5,000

Nothing further has been heard from
the compnny, and there ia a growing doubt as to the probability of
the present management being able
to reorganize it.
The lesson in this is that under the
Provincial Companies' Act the people have no protection whatever from
foreign companies of the sort of the
American Life and Accident. It has
been frequently pointed out that the
Companies' Act simply stifles compet
ition in some lines and gives the peo
pie no real protection. The Instance
given above shows how little protection tbe people get from Mr. Bowser's
Companies' Act. The public would
do well to confine their insurance business to well-known companies of undoubted standing.—-Saturday Sunset,

Mr. Bartlett wishes us to convey
Lo all of our readers the following
nessnge:—
To nil my clients who have takeu
accident and health insurance with
me in the American Life and Accident Insurance, F wish to say that I
am investigating the reports published concerning this company and if
said reports are confirmed by proper
authorities I will make arrangements
to protect every one of my policy
holders In a reliable company without extra cost to them.

Serious Accident
While at St. Mary's Lake on Sunday last, Mr. Otis Staples of Vycllfle
had the misfortune to get a fish-hook
in his left eye.
Mr. Staples was casting his line
and on the back cast, the wind which
was blowing very strong forced the
ily into the pupil of the left eye. Mr
Stnples was taken to his automobile
which at once started for Wycllfte
at Marysville word wus telephoned ta
Cranhrook for Dr. King who met Mr.
Stnples on his arrival. Dr. King
soon extracted the hook, but it is
thought that Mr. Staples will lose
the sight of his eye. Mr. Staples left
the same dny for Spokane to consult
a specialist.
After the accident Mr. Staples
showed n wonderful amount of nerve,
having practically to run his automobile nearly twenty miles while miffer-

The   number   ... mines from which
[shipments were made in lytl  was 80
and   <•!   these    only   45 shipped  more
i than   100    tons each during the year,
■ while   but    30    shipped   In excess of
i 1.000   tons   each.     Of these latter, 6

The "labor employed to the ton of
ore    mined" forms some criterion of
the total  eost  of  mining  in  a camp,
since the cost of labor is in a more
or   less   constant proportion to such
total  cost.     In this  respect   it  is in
tereBting to note in the various districts   the    number   of    tons   of ore
mined to each man employed.
An analysis shows, approximately,
that, taking the Province as a whole
there were Mfi tons of ore mined a
year for each man employed about
the mines. In this respect, however,
the districts vary very materially.
Hince in the Slocan, the figures show
113 tuns mined to the man in a year;
in the Nelson District, 1110 tons; in
Trail Creek District, .172 tons; nnd in
the Boundary, 1,201 tons mined to
the man employed.

FORT STBHLHI MINING DIVISION
The Fort Steele Mining Division
ppears- to have had the largest total decrease in mineral production of
i-l! the districts of the Province.
Not only did the strike of the Crows
Nest coal-mine employees cause a decrease in the output of coal and coke
of nearly $3,000,000 as compared with
liUO, hut the dlstriqt hnd, as well, a
decrease in production of silver to
the extent or about 171,000 oz., and
of lend of nearly 7,000,000 Hi. The
cause of tbe smaller production
roal and coke was the shutting down
of the colleries for a period of eight
months, due to a labor dispute over
the "agreement" as to waj.es; that
of the lessened output of silver and
lead was the direct result of the approaching exhausting of the known
ore-bodies I of thc St. Kugene mine;
the decrease was. however, in part
offset hy an increase output of these
metals hy the Sullivan mine, owned
by thc same company. There were
only tWO other mines in Fort Steele
Division that shipped ore; these were
the Aurora, which made a shipment
of about 100 tons to a concentrating
plant near Creston. for a trial as to
concentration, and the Society Girl,
which shipped 537 tons of galena-ore.

N.E. KOOTENAY DISTRICT
Golden Mining Division
During the past season mining has
heen more or less at a standstill,
with the exception of the Monarch
mine at Field; elsewhere in the district little has been accomplished,
other than the usual statutory assess
ment work and a certain amount of
prospecting and restakeing. Mining
will not "come to its own" till tbe
completion of the Kootenay Central
Railway, which, however, is now under active construction, between Golden and Spillimachene, at the north
end, and from the Crowsnest Railway at the south end. Several properties are in a position to ship as
soon ns transportation is provided.

year; there was more locations recorded than in 1910, hut the develop

limited, as in last year, to a fow pro

mounted only to the usual assessment work.

Many Painful Foot Troubles Result
From Them.
In an article oo sensible shoes In the
Msy Woman's Home Companion ths
author saya:
"Seven persons out of ten suffer ef-
cruclallng pain at one time or unotner
with tholr feet A single corn no
larger than a grain of sund can tuka
all tbe 'snap' aud vitality right out of
you.
"Two thirds ot modern foot troubles
are due to tbe fact tbat almost every-
oue—man, woman and child-wears
shoes too loose. The shoe Itself may
be correct aa to size and shape, but It
Is not fosteued tight at the only point
ot control-namely, tbe Instep.
"Wben you get your foot upon the
door ur pavement tn the act of walking the shoe edberes, and If It be
loosely fastened over tbe Instep the
foot pushes down Into tbe toe of the
shoo. At certain spots on tbe foot tbls
slipping causes friction. These spots
ure the soles of tbe foot, tbe tops, ends
and Inner sides of the tecs, the great
and little toe Joints sud occasionally
even the back of tbe heel.
"When the friction thus caused Is
continued hour after hour and dny
after day oue or more of these stmts
are almost sure to become hummed
and sore. A alight thickening, called a
'callous,' Is formed. Aa the friction
aud pressure go oo tbe resulting callous may thicken up unevenly; then
It Is called a 'corn.'"

About three years ago in Cranbrook there was a very enthusiastic

of starting a rifle association in the

that the only objection which was
met with was obtaining a rifle ranpe
near the city, but this can not trt
voiced  now as one gentleman,  a loy-
in conjunction with the Canadian Ri-1ul staunch citizen has volunteered to
He association.   The results were that 'five all the range necessary.

work so well begun had to rest iu ft-

again taken up and about 100 or the
old members were enlisted. Where is
this association now'' Is it that
these movements are to be constantly begun und let fall or is it not pos-
ible that Cranbrook can range herself

COMMUNICATION
To the Editor of "The Prospector"
Dear Sir-
Kindly allow me to make a few
comments upon the editorial appearing In your paper of August 3rd, regarding what you heard while attend
ing a "certain church for two consecutive Sunday a."
In the first place, "you wore surprised to see how much the pulpit is
being used as an advertising medium
to reach the people" as the minister
exhorted the congregation tt* give all
the support possible to a hook agent,
specializing certain books be had for
sale." as a matter of fact this book
agent happened to be the special re
presentative of the British and For
eign Bible Society, ami had you taken the trouble to acquaint yourself
with the object .tf this Roolety you
would perhaps learn that there is a
reason why anv minister Bhould bo
recommend his congregation to support such .t work,
The above society is not for the
purpose ins you Intimate) .if making
money its objeel is to distribute the
bible over the Whole world in as many
different languages us possible, the
colporters senl oul by the society
ore allowed to use tbeir discretion fta
ti   whether they   give  \he blblBS away
or sell them at a very low price so
that n.. one, no matter bow poor,
need be without the book, then why
should not. the pulpit be used foi em
phasdl nfj auch s work'' l take exception to the statement that "tbe
minister exhorted bis congregation,
etc., etc. all he said, after mention
Ing tbe fad tbat the agent was here,
was tbat be hoped the people would
give all tbe support possible as it
was a worthy object- there was no
exhortation about it  whatever.
i:: •'■:•.  gecond place, "tbe represent
ative of a certain college was given
leave to address the congregation, etc j
strongly advising tbe people to send
their children there as heme the best
for  their  welfare."    professor  Baker-
representing    Okanagan    College    of I
Summerlaml   B.C .  a   Baptist  Educational institution, outlined the differ-
eat courses taken up also naming the
teachers in charge, of each class.
This college is efficiently epulpped j
with the very best educationalists
procurable, and the very fact that it
is affiliated with HcCHU and McMas-
ter universities is ample proof that
its professors nnd teachers rnnk hieh
In the educational world.
This is also n denominational institution supported financially by the
Baptist Churches and friends of B.C.
and other Provinces, and if the number of students attending can be Increased it necessarily means more revenue und better equipment; and as
the influences surrounding a college
of thiskind are of the hest, the faculty being composed of cultured christian men and women, und the bible
used as a text hook, why should not
its representative be offered the use
nf our nultdt to state these advantages and suggest that we send our
children for higher education?
The pastor wns quite within his
rights to invite professor linker to
speak on this subject and he explained his object in doing so; and person
ally, as a member of the Baptist
Church I consider it entirely uncalled
for on your part to criticize him in
the public press.
Thanking you in anticipation of the
publication of the above, I am,
Yours truly,
B. II. SHORT
The above communication was re
reived almost, at the last minute of

for us 'to answer it In tho present is

Railway Commissioners
Last week the Railway Commissioners were sitting at Oalgary, being
chiefly engaged in the discussion of
freight rate cases. Among other quel
tions perhaps more directly interest-
Ing to the prnirie province, the matters were taken up and in the case
of Whitla this was not deflnately con-
eluded; hut in reference to Erickson,
the Board refused to Intervene.
The Canadian pacific made an application in connection with a diver-
Blon of the Crows Nest Pass line. The
trouble In connection with the appli-
cation was that the line was going to
leave the village of Whitla without
railway facilities, This village was
established many years ago and the
residents of the village, although of- \
fered lots, without cost, in the new
town, would have a total loss on
their buildings. The value was not
large,   hut  Commissioner  Scott  hcM I
" WMM
SBALHD   TlCNDl'.ns addressed to
the undersigned, and endorsed "Ten
der for a Pile Wharf at OomaplU, B,
0," will be received at this olllce until 4.00 P.M.. on Wednesday. August
28, 1912, for the construction ot Pile
Bent und Timber Decking wharf at
Cotnapllx, District of Kootenay, British Columbia.
Plans, specification and form of con
tract can ne seen nnd forms of tender
obtained at this Department and at
the offices of F. W. Aylmer, Esq.,
District Engineer, Chase, B.C., C. C.
Worsfold, Esq., District Engineer,
New Westminster, B.C., I.. B. Elliot,
Esq., District Engineer, Edmonton,
Alta., and on application to the Post
master at Comapllx, B.C.
persons tendering are notified that
tenders will not be considered unless
made on the printed forms supplied,
and signed with their actual signatures, stating their occupations and
places of residence. In the case of
firms, the actual signature, the nature
of the occupation, and place of residence of each member of the firm
must he given.
Each tender must be accompanied
by an accepted cheque on a chartered
bank, payable to the order of the
Honourable the Minister of Public
Works, equal to ten per cent (10 per
cent) of the amount of the tender,
which will be forfeited if the person
tendering decline to enter into a contract when called upon to do bo, or
fail to complete the work contracted
for. If the tender be not accepted
the cheque will be returned.
The Department does not bind itself
to accept the lowest or any tender.
By order,
strongly that tin. rights uf the residents must be respected. The chief engineer said that the object of the improvement was to secure a four-tenth
grade. In order to du this, it was
essential that the new line should be
at some distance from Whitla, and on
the other side of a very deep coulee.
The commission approved of the plan
for the new track, but added that the
railway company must either move
h11 the houses in the village, ur pay
a fair price for them. M, J, McCarthy nppeorod for the village,

May  Postpone  Trip
It is probable that Hon. Robert
Rogers, minister of the interior, will
postpone indefinitely his proposed
trip to England. He figured on sailing for London in the course of ten
days, but will probably uot have
time to make the trip owing to the
desire of Premier Borden to have all
the ministers in Ottawa early in Sep
tember to consider the naval question and the parliamentary program.
Marriage Law
Canada's marriage laws are now
being discussed by the highest tribunal of the Empire. The Canadian
courts have already delivered Judgement on the proper Interpretation of
the laws, but an appeal to the Privy
Council followed that judgement.
There are really only two issues involved in the case. One Is as to the
power of the Dominion Parliament
to pass a marriage law, and the second involves the ne temere decree of
the Church ot Rome in ho far as it
.iffects the marriage of Roman Catholics. The docision of the Privy
Council is awaited with very great
interest.

Was it worth Witle?

When all my life hung on one tender smile,
You crushed my hopes nil eager for

Wan  that   worth   while?
Now,  I am dying;   could you, your

Tho obedient elephant stood Its
ground. Tbe .shock of battle closed
round it ami the standard it carried-
Hul the elephant never moved a yard,
refusing to advance or retire the
standard intrusted to it.
The .Mahrattas. seeing the ftng si ill
flying in Us place, would not believe
that the day was going against them
and rallied again and again round
their immovable standard bearer,
Meanwhile the elephant stood there
In the very heart of the conflict.

of the now routed foe. Hut tho elephant stood in Its place with tbe
slain heap around it and the standard stiil floating above its castled
back

Williams' I'ink lMllls cure nervous

Snakes and   Sense
Ever since lhe serpent in the Garden of Eden double-crossed Eve, tbe
sons of men have been swatting the
snake.
But now appears Prof. II. D
Bailey of Muhlenberg College in Pennsylvania with a word directed especially to farmers. He urges farmers
to desist from indiscriminate snake
swatting. What is more the profess
or wants to put some of the snakes
into lho song-bird class, which Is to
say, he wants them protected by legislation because of their co-operation
with mankind in warfare on pests
detrimental to man's agricultural purposes.
Hero is r, list of ihe professor'B
special privilege snake family; king
snake, milk snake, bull snake, fox
snake, indfgo snake, corn snake, and
common garter snake. We have the
professor's word for it, that these
snakes ure 'Harmless to mankind, and
are really benefactors because they
destroy rodents and many insects.
As a matter of actual scientific fact,
there are very few venomous snakes
iu North America, but there is a ter
rifle aversion and prejudice among
normal persona against the whole
snake kingdom. Whnt Prof. Bailey
says is doubtless very well founded
on commonsense. lt may be practi
eal absurdity lo swat a friend, even
If It be a snake. Nevertheless wc
doubt very much whether legislation
would be successful in removing so
universal a prejudice.
When it comes to legislating In the
snake's behalf bis suakesbip Is amen
able to ihe oldest law In the world
according to which he haH no bust
neas eating gophers and bugs any
how. According lo (Jenesis all ihe
snake lias any right to eat Is dust
'ind if he bad been following orders
lie wouldn't be here now.
Digging for Mia Own Money

AsjenlC is , . -uonly employed by
the professional *.. -mer in India,

Kweeiments, and generally by a
strange woman who has been met in

found in every analyst's report, for
tho last twenty years, and In circumstances so identical that it would almost seem to he the same person.
