Prominent Lumberman Sees Prosperous Era Ahead
For Lumbering Industry
"It is a mistake to thim t'tat only
tbe ueople of western Canada are interested in the completion of the Pan
ania Canal, and that they alona
among Canadians will read benefits
trom tbe opening of that waterway.
It will conler a benefit on BaBtern
manufacturers and all business men

water competition is bo.n.l to have
an effect in lowering transcontinental rates, and no doubt many products of th,- Blast and West of tbe

by Mr. R. R. Hall, ex-M.P., ot West

Vancouver News-Advertiser. He bus

Bend Lumber Company, which has
limits on the Columbia River and arrow lakes, and an luvestor in sever
al other lumber enterprises.
"Tbe opening of the cnnal," Si
continued, "should be of especial ad
vantage to the lumbering industry o'
British Columbia. I am informed by
no Ubs an authority than the editor
ot The American Lumberman that
the freight rates on lumber shipped

saving would be somewhat less. The
figure quoted will be the dillercnce

from 75 cents to 30 centa pfr hundred pounds.
"The rate around the Hom 1.
about 30 cents per hundred, but that
is a very long and dangerous trip.

Most ol the r sk will be obviated via

The Road Tractor
The Provincial Government placed
through F. Dezall. local agent tor
tbe International Harvester Co., an
order tor a Road Roller ol 23,000 lbs
in weight. This roller wae delivered
ln Cranbrook on Saturday last. Dur
ing the week tbere has been Mr. Taylor here, expert trom the Internatlon
al Company, Instructing tbe local
driver with the technicalities of thc
machine and tbe hest methods of receiving the largest amount of work

The machine is very simple in construction, but owing to tbe several
uses to which it can he put by making slight changes, thc Roller wtll be
of great valuo to Road Superintendent John Rcid In making and repairing the roads in this district.
This machine cnn not only be used
as a Road Roller but with various
changes cnn bo made into u Tractor;
other changes will make it into a
Roid Holler Tractor' and still other
changes lt cnn he made so that It
wlll not only act ns n Road Roller
but bchlnli It can be drawn a grader
the latter will be nf great valuo In
making roads through this d strict.
This machine is of 25 horso power
and wlll burn Kerosene or Gasolin
cheap Kerosene at that. Economy is
a strong point in its favor. No water wagon or coal wagon ls needed
as lt carries an all day's supply ol
fuel and cooling water, This not
only euts oft a big Item of expense
tor labor and teams, but saves the
time used by steam rollers several
times a day taking on fuel or wnter. I
Besides this saving ot time, it makes
a greater saving ln the cost ot fuel
Then Ita convenience ls a big saving ol time and lahor Iir the operator, aa the power Is practically automatic after the engine Is started.
There ls nn coal to shovel or water
gauge to watch; no disagreeable
heat or dirty smoke with which the
operator haa to contend,

Calgary, July 9.—Shortage of money in the city treasury with when,
to carry on public works, the delay
In opening up of city work and the
consequent shortening of the season,
the general financial stringency and
the lack ot work compared with for.
mer years—these are conditions
wblcb make a public market an lm*
perattve necessity in Calgary.
Charity and soc ul service workers
in the city anticipate a hard winter
Money ia not likely to be plentiful.
"I .sincerely hope this market move
ment may be successful for the sake
of laboring people whoce condition
offers n discouraging outlook," said
ia deaconess whose work takes her
much among nil classes ot people
"The saying of even a 'cw cents on
each article <A' food means a great
denl when there nre several tnontl'S
to feed." Tho vigor with which tbe
women are pushing their campaign
for the copper coin Is commendable.
While it may be to the advantgge ol
the limited few to prevent the introduction of this convenience, it will be
nt the expense of a large pro-iortloi
of thc population who cun ill afford
thc unnecessary expenditure of even
a single dime.
"tine hundred nml llfty dollurs u:ora
or loss per year may seem a small
amount to some people in Calgary,
but there are many more to whom
this stun represents the ililTori-n-e between enough und actual hardship."
Mrs. E, P. Ncwhall, president ol
the Consumers' League, regards the
introduction of this citrrnncy as one
ot the most, important results of the
rejuvenation of the market. If ths
copper coin can be placed ln circulation and he made acceptable at the
hanks, and at thc shops, an economic
revolution may be effected.
Tho introduction of tbe coin allows
of prices between 5, 10, 16 and 25
cents, it increases competition and
educates tho public to elimin ite waste
as tar as possible.

prior to the passage ol the amend

Act, because it coul I have reviewed
only a portion ot the rights on ev

"The Province ls well equipped at
he present time to exercise thi br
ger powers which are given it in thi
.ailway belt. Not only has the stai
of the Water Rights maiah been ti,
targed and made more ottecti.e, but
water legislation bus been perfected.

atic hydrograpblc worn might be assured, and the many problems, aris-

as a result of tholr investigation, recommendations were BUbmat.d foi
iiiae ng the engineering worn on e
permanent basis, and providing
machinery, that would, through am
endments to the Water Act, permi.
I effective administration.
"The present Provincial Water
Act ls the result of _ process of evolution beginning in the early days
ol the colony. Thc law relating to
the use ot the water of the streams
[or mining and Irrigation purposes
is a product of the West. There is
little ln either the common law of
England or in the statutes ot the
older commonwealths of Eastern
Canada to serve as a precedent.
The evolving of suitable rules and
regulations governing the use of water haB had to be worked out step
by step in the successive legislatures
nnd throughout the successive administration of British Co'umbia.
"Under the common law df England adjoining a stream had a great
deal to Bay about what should be
done, or should not be done, with
thc waters of the Btream. Diversion of the water on a l«ge scale
could be prevented by such an owner, even if he did not care to use
tbe water himself. All thiB has been
altered by legislative enactment in
BritlBh Columbia, and licences to divert unrecorded water from 8 Btream
tor mining, Irrigation and other purposes may be obtained by anyone
who can show a uae for lt.
"The amendments paBsed at the
recent session of the Provincial Parliament are in.no sense a departure
trom the spirit of former acts, but
follow-up and perfect the policy laid
down therein. By thi passage ol
the 1909 Act, which created the tribunal known as the Board of Investigation, already referred to, the
legislature of this Province lor the
first time faced squarely the matter
of dealing with the thousands of old
records and water titles which had
been issued with such freedom snl
laxity during tbe proceeding half-
century. It was hardly realized at
th s time what a tremendous undertaking wub involved in this task.
Even to prooorlv review and adludi-
cate the rights in nny one ot the
large valleys south o>( the Railway
Belt, such as the Okanagan. reoulred
extensive surveys and the gathering
of n large amount of data. Time
waB required to properly prepare
the ground for the ndindlcatlpns of
the Board, but the In'tinl stages are
now haimllv nast, adjudications having been completed in several ot the
more contentious districts and existing rights having been plnced on a
| firm basis.
"Tho Provincial Act of 1909 as
amended in 1912, require all licences
tor water privileges henceforth to
issued at thc head office in Victoria.
This insured regularity In the records which had not been possible
under former acts; but In order to
grnnt rights Intelligently the Comptroller nf Water R ghts In Victoria
required accurate field data and other local information, nnd the Act of
1909 provided no machinery for supplying this The Atlmlnlstrati.n,
therefore, In the tlrst veirs of the
operation of the a«t found itself
handicapped because of thiB shortcoming. The onlv local officers who
could he called upon bv the comptroller under the 1909 Act to ossist
him In gathering the needed information were the  water recorders.
"The men filling these positions,
were generally Government agents
with routine office duties that, fully
occupied ihelr time. Furthermore,
they were not qualified bv tra'ning
to undertake some of the new duties
such as thc inspection of dams,
headgntea, Humes and other structures, the determination ol the proper quantity ot wator required by
the applicant, the direction and control of the diversion, stornge, and
distribution of wnter. Tho amendments of this year vary the pro-
cecdure of the former Act and give
tho comptroller of water rights
local representative In every district
culled the "Engineer of the Water
District." The moment any coin-
|plaint eoniOH in, the comptroller
cull" 111*011 this local engineer to gather the noccBsnry Held dntn relating to the matter In question, and
ho Ih then qualified tn pass upon the
point after giving nil parties a hearing.
'The principle that in order to
hnlil a wnter right use of the prlvl-
legi'H grnnted must be niiiile within
n reasonable time has become more
firmly established thnn ever by the
adopt inn of the i!it;i amendments,
Thin is by no meani n now policy in
llrltlsh Columbia. On the contrary,
the statutes from the om-llest times
have embodied it. The same ronioti
Ing  that  led   Provincial   Legislature
to permit the divot-ting of ntreain
wntors for mining, Irrigation, nml
other Industrial purposes, toil them
also to Inslat. tbnt the privileges
granted be either used within stated
time, or riven up. Any other course
would hnve brought disastrous results, for all the waters of the Pro
vincc would eventually have come to
be owned by parties who coild or
not at will.
"By insisting on ub.' within a reasonable time the speculator Is discouraged, and the settler and bona
llde investor are encouraged. It
might be aald here however, thnt the
Government of Brit oh Columbia bus
been more thnn liberal In thc time
allowed for thc clearing dl landa nml
the building of worts, nnd that the
holder of a record or a privilege In
this Province need not be afraid of
bcina compelled to give up bla right
if he proceeds with a reasonable development undor the circumstances.
;'Wlitle all former acta laid stress
on the use of water privileges, nooe
of tbem supplied suitable procedure
for carrying this principle into effect. Even under the Act ot 1909 final lieuices were Issued to applicants
n'iter the approval of their plane
No further steps were required on
the part 0f the appl cants, and there
was no filial check ng up to see
which of them had constructed tbelr
works, and which of them had not.
It was therefore, only a question of
time il this system were to te continued before an adjudication of ull
tbe rights held under now licences
would be required just as had been
the case with old records.
"The amendments of 1913 tor the
first time supply the procedure whlcb
enables tho administration to keep
check on tho status ol e.-ery right
in the Province. Instead ot turniig
the applicant adrift atter his plans
and spin-Meat Ions have been appro'ed
be is given only a conditional licence at tbat time, and he Ib required to report at certain stated
times the exact amount ot improvement performed by him under this
conditional licence. His final licence
is withheld until proof iB filed bv
him of the completion of bis works
in accordance with the plans anl
specifications ae approved. In this
way tbe exact status of nil water
rights in known at the Water Rights
Branch, and their tabulation is made
possible It an applicant within the
time granted to him. completes
works capable of using only one-
tenth of the water which he was en
titled t0 use, his final licence issues
only for such amount. The time
granted to nn applicant may, how
ever, be extended it good cause is
shown therelore.
"While the Provincial Water Act
as It Btood prior to the amendments
of this year made ample provision
for power companies and municipalities, there was scarcely any specific
mention therein of an irrigation, and
what few references there were Beetn
to bave referred to companies already in distance. Tbere was not
only no provision lor the formation
ot an irrigation company, but indeed some sections seemed absolutely
hostile to the idea that such com.
Panles might be formed.
"This condition was brought about
i a secondary consequence of some
excellent leg station, and waa in u
way unavoidable until expert.nee
pointed a way out of tbe difticulty.
The law-makers in previ-ius lesslons
were so desirous of giving effect to
the principle that tho water was to
be man* ed to the soil, and were so
solicitous about preventing the passing of the major part of the waters
ot this Province Into the ownership
and control of corporate interests
that they overlooked, lor tho time
being, another essential requirement
for development in any new coun
try; thnt is, the necessity of permit
ting reclamation of large bodies o
land, always under due restriction,
and safeguards. This is precisely
whnt is provided for in Part 10A ol
ot the 1913 amendments.
"The Irrigation companies whose
organization is permitted under thi
part are strictly storage and carry
ing companies. The crention „f auch
compan es Is not incompat tie with
tbe principle that the water is to be
appurtenant to the land. It is pro
vlded thut ngreements with users
must stipulate th it the water rights
and Irrigation systems will eventu
ally bo owned by the wnter usets
"In this way the prov sloni of th
Acta are made applicable to the re
clamatlon by private capital ol large
bodies of arid land whore tbere are
no settlers, or nt any rate very tew
at the present time. Thi Minister
is empowered to placo a reserve u|i

position hns been steadily growing

been running behind at the rate of
from $15,000 to $20,000 a month.
The situation hns been serious as
the numerous small pol.cy holdera,
most of them people who could ill
afford a loss were threatened with
losing their savings. Hon. Mr.
White has given a great deal of attention und time to the case in an
ondeavor to save something for the
policy holders. A yenr ago he notified the directors of tne Union Life
that they must cut down their expenses and they were notified that
some of their assets were not considered aound. Since then, the licence
has been renewed by the Insuraace
department only from month to
month. An effort was first made to
raise capital in England but this
failed. Since then things have gone
from bad to worse and In May the
licence of the company wns cancelled.
Mr. White snw that there were but
two possible solutions if anything
waa to be saved." One was liquidation in which case it was doubtful
if thc policy holderB would get m"ch
out of their wreckage and the other
was to have the policies re-insured
