Fire^! !
A slight fire occurred in the Prospector Office last
night at 11 p.m. The type-setting machine was put out of
commission and the publication of the paper delayed. The
cause of the fire was a back fireing of the gasoline torch.
Thanks to the prompt arrival of the Fire Department
they prevented, what could easily have been, a serious conflagration.
The Prospector is deeply indebted to the "Herald" and
its staff for their prompt and practical assistance in our time
of need.

Within the   last twenty or twenty
live years, tbe   .cience ol" geology has
developed "in   a direction that      has
brought it Into direct and serviceable
association     with    those   olasBes ol
commercial   enterprise that arc     dependent on engineering      While   tins
Is especially true    iu respect of mining, ll   applies almost   equally      to
railroading,     municipal   engineering,
and other     activities ot a like    na
ture.     The   dependence ol mining on
geology is attested, for example,    by
the fact   that n geologist Is nov,   in
variably   Incl'.idi-d   on tho permanent
stall of overy mining corporation oi

.has been quit*-   nut of the proportion
to the supply      It is recognized universally, in short, that the debt    ol
| the njiniug   industry to geology      is
j enormous,'and t.;e obligation      continues     to    increase steadily      This
.largely   explains    the    circumstance
I that tho    Invitation   to tho International Geological Congress    to   hold

'made, not only ut the instance      of

; Mining Institute, an association     representative,     in    a     truly national
si-niic, of J he  mining Industry ol this
country,     lt is believed thai      this

On these grounds, a general appeal

Socially and scientifically, Ibe last
mcetlug m Sweden was notably sue
oessful,     The opening session      was
Mended by the King of Sweden in
person, while at ihe session devoted
to the discussion ot economic problems, a number of the cabinet minis
tors proved tliolr interest and sense
of the importance of the occasion by
their presence. The arrangements
foi tlic conduct of the meeting, tot
ih" entertainment of tbe visiting
set, utists, and in connection with the
several excursions, were .planned and
carried out witli extraordinary ability and precision, and it will require

energetic and representative executive committee, lo which has been
entrusted tho task of preparing a

Th" excursions, more especially on
'hi' occasion of recent meetings, have
boon given special prominence, These
have two main purposes; one to illus-
iialT, so far i> iVssihte/ itie subjects discussed; and the other to
afinrd visiting members the opportunity of studying the features of
geological interest peculiar to the
country in which llie congress assembles, ln couneolion with the arrangements- for lhe Canadian meeting, provision has heen mnde for
over thirty excursions to mining districts aud other localities of geological interest iu Canada, between the
extreme oast and west of tbe continent, aud northward as far as I>aw
son It is computed, on lhe basis ol
the numbers in attendance at former
meetings, that the representation
Irom abroad, at the Canadian meeting, will not be less than, and may
exceed, seven hundred Each excursion will lie uniler the leadership of a
duly qualified guide, who will also bo
competent to point out and discuss
the phenomena constituting the
point of interest in each Instance
Obviously, tin- planning and effective
conduct of a series of excursions on
this scale is no light undertaking;
hut witli the assurance of local aid
ami co-operation, thc difficulties
should not prove insuperable
1 The Swedish meeting was marked
especially by the publication of a
monumental work on "Tbe Iron Ore
, lic-sourcea of the World," to which
■.ports on 'he distribution and supply of iron in lhe respective countries were contributed by eminent
authorities. The executive committee of the twelfth congress arc to
be verv heartilv congratulated on the
decision to emulate this example by
undertaking the compilation of a
Companion work on the "Coal Resources of the World " incidentally
tins report should serve to direct)
wider nt tuition lo the magnitude
and value ot Canadian resources. The
subject ot coal resources and supplies will, moreover, form one of the
principal topics lor discussion at the
meeting in Toronto, while other topics of no less economic interest, not-

Rule spl't in the Liberal party.
When my father, said Mrs. Reynolds, was engaged on the portrait
of Bright, ho incidentally mentioned
that he was about to paint a similar
one of Mr. Gladstone. It must be
a very painful thing for you, Mr.
Bright, ho hazarded, that after all
■hese years you should have found
cause to sever your connection.
Indeed it te, replied Bright, with a
sigh, to think that after we have trod-!
aen the fame path together, shoulder
to shoulder and hand In hand wo
should he forced apart in tho evening of our lives! Aud by what? By
a bogey that has risen up within him
and ls beckoning him away from duty
and sense—by a Frankenstein. Do
you know, Mr. Holt, I seriously fear
that my dear old friend's mind has
become radically undermined?
When he was at Ha ward en painting Gladstone the aubjett of my father's portrait of Bright cropped up.
Ah, said Gladstoue, with much interest, aad liow did you find him'.'
Fairly well, and he spoke very affectionately of you, Mr. Gladstone.
Did he, indeed, replied the sitter,
sorrowfully, Did be, indeed? That
was a crael blow. That after a life-

Strawburning Plan
The value of straw to Canadian
farmers (ifl a means of preventing, to
a large degree, tho heavy frosts of

of Henry Sorensen, of tho executive
board of the United Fanners' of Alberta association, aro very interesting. In an Interview with a Telegram representative, ho gave it as
his opinion that lho burning of straw
which at present Is generally regarded as so much waste, would do much

The experience of Motherhood la a trying ono to most women and muks distinctly an epoch in their liven. Not ono
woman in a hundred is preparrd or understands how to properly care for herself. Of courao nearly every woman
nowadays haa medical treatment at
such times, but many approach the
experience with an organism unfitted
for the trial of strength, and when it
is over her system has received a shock
from which it is hard to recover. Following right upon this comes tho nervous strain of caring for the child, and

a happy and healthy mother of children,

Collie Tnmoed Fifty Miles to Guide
His Mongrel Chum
Every now and then someone with
.-. ranlno pet com»s out. with a story
about Its intelligence, and out of the
lot a few are worth retailing. One
such Incident is told by a German-
town man.
His family possesses n fine Scotch
collie, which has all the intelligence
Whloh mirks the good ones of nis

dog thai belongs to no particular
breed, and Is "Just dog." of course,
tliey aro not very proud of this uninvited guest nnd lmvo never paid much
altention lo him.
When Iho family went awny for the
summer they took the collie to their
country home, which is about fifty
miles from the city, nnd left the mongrel behind, after arranging wllh a
neighbor lo leed him. Some days
after tliey had settled In the country
they were worried and also surprised
to realize that tho colli.' was missing.
Ho had spent the othor summers at
.iir- phico and should have known his
wny about ns well as the children,
the folks thought.
A careful search about the country
did not disclose the collie, so afier
about a week the family gave up nil
idea of Undine lilm. It was at lhls
dramatic time thnt he made his reappearance, and with him "wnn the
mongrel iint had been left behind as
lacking class for the resort where his
owners slay. Both dogs were fairly

There is no longer room lor speculation as to the future ol Cranhrook

district, Inhabited by a thrifty and
enterprising class ol business men,

empire, being the terminal of all road
and trails that lead Irom every mining und lumbering camp in Southeast Kootenay; Cranbrook is not only tho largest city in the district,
but It Ib the most important by long
odds from u commercial standpoint.
It is tbe distributing centre for this

surround it It is also the centre ol
a large lumbering country. Pros

There is no argument then, patent to j
common  judgement,   why   Cranbrook
ut the present time and in the future
will not be ii leading city ol this
large growing district. No railway
to be constructed in the future eau
escape us—ana its promoters will not
try—us public enterprises stand
rea.ly today to build to and from
this city. There is no doubt but
that Cranbrook ts now. and ever will
be the railway, lumbering, .is well as
the commercial centre of this district

The commission's report iH an admirably condensed resume of conclusions nnd recommendations, the outstanding features of which may he
briefly referred to as follows: Bpoak
in« generally, the existent form of
municipal government in force in
Uritlsli Columbia is found to have
worked well and given satisfaction,
a   system  of   municipal  law having
been developed through annual ri>-
sbaplng of the municipality Act to
meet the necessities of changing

the Dominion. The recommendation
In this connection is bused largely
upon the hiicccbh in practice of the
Winnipeg system, and the commission advises legislation permitting cities of 15,01)0 population or

public rights i)>* such, under powers
seeured through undue latitude in
tbeir respective special charters, the
appointment Is advised ol a coimnis-
sian with ample powers to enforce
reasona de action iu all such cases,
notwithstanding the powers granted
tbe corporations interested under
their private acts, such a tribunal
being either permanent or from t.roe
to time appointed by tbe t.overn-
ruent to deal with specific cases as
tbey arise. Tower would ulso be
possessed by such a commission to
give adequate servicem reumu m mm
compel public service corporations to
give adequate service to tbe public
and at reasonable cost .
Legislation is further recommended
under which municipalities may tnke
power to establish and operate such
public utilities as telephone systems,
motor bus lines, etc., within their
respective boundaries. With the object of safeguarding municipal financing, the creation is proposed ot a
Municipal Department under which
would be one or more inspectors
whose duty it would ne to see that
nil municipality books are properly
kept, including school accounts, that
these are duly audited at lenst once
annually, and that uniform system
js established in municipal accounting.

year terms, one half the board retiring annually, and tbat no change be
made from the present system of

iugs n this province, the commission
ers obtniued the views of many of
the mayors, reeves, aldermen and
councillors of tbe fifty-five incorporated municipalities of British Columbia, as weil as the views of many
citizens who take a deep Interest in
tbe problems of municipal government. Ample opportunity to be
heard was given to all wishing to ap
pear before the commission, and a
great mas-, of evidence and data, cov
»ring 1200 typewritten pages, bearing chiefly upon the operation ot the
Municipal Act, was gathered from
witnesses in various Provincial centres visited, where one hundred and
fifty-eight were examined on oath or
solemn affirmation. The unsworn
testimony of witnesses at thirty-two
places outside British Columbia was
also taken nnd compiled in one of
the volumes of evidence appended to
tbe report.

tbe coimnissionees in their report
which is one of the ablest documents
of tbe kind pretented in the history
of such public inquiries in Western
Cnnada, "that tbe broadest and
most abiding impression made upon
us by the information gathered from
nil quarters is that the system of

British Columbia up to tbe present

years past the legislature has devoted a large pnrt of Us time to amending and reshaping the municipal law
so as to make it suitable to the
changed conditions of the Province,

to be lacking In symmetry, but to

adapted to the actual wants of tbe
people. Our municipal law, in substance, ls the same *« that of Ontario, Manitoba and otber Provinces
of tbe Dominion, but modified to
meet our peculiar wants. While our
discussions and investigations bave
disclosed tbe fact tbnt improvements
might well be made in severul respects, yet we think it would be a
mistake radically to change tbe pros
cut system and to substittie for it
another wblcb might be found not
nearly so useful q code as the one
which has grown up as a result of
actual experience. Nearly all those
who gave evidence were sitlstled
with the present system; but in tbe
cities on tbe Const „ numbor considered that councils bad not sufficient
time to copo wltb thc details of admin strntlon, which bud better be
left to a small body 0, men devoting tbelr entire time to the work.
Wo have great pleasure In reporting
that there appears to be no lack of
upright and intelligent men In Uritlsli Columbia prepared to take upon
tlimiwelvns tlio burden of munlclpnl
government, and thnt, ho tar as our
InvostlgnUinn has gone, their efforts
Imve resulted, In both city and district municipalities, ln good and bon
est administration. Of municipal
corruption we found  no trace whit.4.

That the prominent but-lncss men
ol the western states are thoroughly
alive to the vast importance of the
forest conservation movement was
shown by un address by F. C. Knapp
ol the Portland Chamber of Commerce. Mr. Knapp at the convention
of the Eastern Forestry and Conservation  Association in  Seattle said:
"We have a gigantic task belore
ub in thu eradication of tbe false
theories and unworthy Ideals that go
to mnke up the average American's
convictions on tho subject of conssr-
"I have always thought that Diogenes was on the wrong trail; it is
not so much tbe "honest man" that
is the rarest among mortals, but the
man with an open mind.
"We have to light not only human
inertia—which, paradoxically enough,
Is the strongest lorce in nature-
hut we have to comnat prejudice
and uproot tradition.
"We are a whole nation ol prodigal sons. Wo are not only wasteful, but we glory In our wastelulneBB
" Turin |a not In our category ol
"Indeed, we are prono to look upon shrltt not us a virtue, but as a
makeshift of little people.
"Eve was not obliged to pare her
potatoes thin and we of tbe boun
terms West have heen accustomed to
consider ourselves as dwellers tn
Garden of Bden from whence we
could look with no little scorn upon
the frugal ways ol the New Kngland
housewife. Hut there came a time
'when Adam delved and Kve a.ran,"
and now our day ol reckoniug Is at
"II we would slay in our Garden
of l.den we must not only pare the
potatoes thin, but we must plant
the purlngn. We must not only cut
tbe ripe timber with due regard lor
that which must make further
growth, but we must use the slashings snd reforest the hillsides. We
waste 1.10,00(1,01)-) and Hncrillce 50
lives a year ln forest Urea and hnve
been doing it lor ,, generation.
Thus it Is up to you and ine,
members ol this association, to correct the false popular impression
and to make known everywhere the
lact that conservation is not. only a
policy to which the government Is
committed, hut, in its broadest sense
It means a new national Idealism
toward which officials, lumbermen
nnd laity, alike, are striving.
And sn our tusk becomes the
delicate und dlfllcult ono ot popular
Is-lng nn ideal. I'arh of us—aseocl-
ntt-n. crrnfoiiorntn. fellow-workers,
slnc-eren.uu, 'combined (or a common

them through all our othor varied

Where Master   Mariners   Foregather
and Chat
The National Maritime Club. In
Fenchtirct Street, is llm meeting-place
cf ship-masters in London. The
members spend most of their lives on
tho ocean, und you may see In tho
club-rooms men who a few weeks ago,
perhaps, were weathering oul u terri-
llo hurricane in the Quit ot Mexico,
or were crawling down Hie dangerous
Formosn Channel, or steaming us hnrd
as they could go ncross the open Pacific or Atlantic,
The club wns formed n couple of
years ago by a fow ship-masters, but
it has now over six hundred men uf
the sea on Ub bonks. In no club
In London could you meet so many
men who have hnd so many strange
antl thrilling experiences.
From one ship-master a newspaper
representative gleaned the fact Hint
bo hud onco been sllx days nt sen
with a lire In the hold of Ills ship, hut
he had managed to keep the lire under, nnd reached Philadelphia safely. Another mariner mentioned in
a casual manner, that the only lillle
experiences he could call to mind was
tho picking up in tho Pacilio of a
small boat with two men lu lt. One
of the men was dead, the other barely alive; his tongue fearfully swollen
was sticking out of his mouth, and
his eyes had gone so far back in their
sockets that they were searoely visible. .He was the sole survivor from
an American ship that had foundered
in mid-Pacific during a hurricane,
Captain Widgery, the secretary, nnd
ono of the original founders ot Iho
club, has had forty-live years' experience of the sea, and is now retired.
Captain Widgery, like his club-males,
is not much disposed to talk of his experience,, but he gave the representative, afler much pressing, an account
of a hurricane ho had once been In
the Gulf of Mexico.
Tho wind wub so bad Hint the ship
could make no headway at all against
It and Captain Widgery ordered the
engines to be stopped. There wns
nothing to be done, aaid Captain Widgery, but simply to weather the hurricane out as best we could. The
Bhlp was blown over by tho force of
the wind until her deckB wero almost
perpendicular, and we lay like that
for twenty-four hours.
The water whipped up by the wind
completely enveloped the ship in a
driving cloud of spray, through which
wc could not see a yard ahead. Tho
sea Itself, you must understand, was
not heavy, for in these violent hurricanes bo much water Is blown off the
surface oi the sea, that the waves are
comparatively small.
Well, as I said, we lay for twenty-
four hours more than half blown over,
and the trouble was we did not know
where we were going, for during the
hurricane, aa we saw neither sun nor
stars, lt waa quite impossible to take
a reckoning. We miy.ht have been
blown on to the coast and wrecked;
but as lt was wo weathered the hurricane out In safety, though wo wero
blown miles and miles out of our
course. Every particle of paint on
the ship en Ihe weather Bide waB peeled off by the wind and water.
When tho representative was at the
club, ihe telephone-bell rang frequently. At each ring the steward would
come Into the smoking-room with a
message to say that Captain So-and-So
was required at tho telephone. One
of these calls was a summons thnt
warned the master mariner who answered it thnt he would be wanted to
sail that evening for Hong-Kong.
Elm Le.iris In Canadian Cooperage
Although the elm still lends among
the woods used for slack cooperage,
spruce Is rapidly supplanting It. Ill
the total cutpllt of linrrels In the Uo-
minion last year, there were used, according lo llgures compiled by the
| Forestry branch nf-tlio Department of
the interior, 80.016,U00 pieces of elm.
in staves headings and hoops, as
i.gainst 37,704,000 pieces of spruce
There wore, however, over 11,000,001)
more spruce slaves nnd 11,000,000 few
er dm staves reported for 1011 than
for 1910 In llmo, elm will probably
he used only for hoops, as it Ib the
itest. wnn I for the purpose, tlio supply
is fast diminishing, and other species
can bo used .to advantage for staves
nntl headings. Tlio ultimate substitute for elm will probably lie birch
which is comparatively plentiful.
Slack cooperage ls of vastly greater
importance titan tight cooperage In
Canada. This Is because the majority of Canadian products are of a
rough und dry nature, such as lime,
potatoes, apples, dry tlsh, flour, cereals, etc., mid becauso Canadian
woods are hest suited to slack cooperage .
White nek. Hie only wood whloh
can be used lor containers of alcoholic liquids, has been practically exhausted In Canadian woodlands. In
1911 only 2.1-68.000 oak staves wero
cut, white 7,2113,000 were Imported.
A rough estimate on the part of lhe
Forestry Branch places Hie minimum
nniount. of material used in the manufacture of all classes of cooperage
ns 62,353.190 board feet, made up as
follows: staves, 29.307,711 feet, heading, 24 466,666 feet, and hoops, 62,-

Heroism of a Boy
Tho striking heroism of little Jack
Thayer, one of the Titanic BurvivorB,
waB related by Dr. Arthur J. Smith
as an Inspiration to the young peoplo of the churches to do valiant
deeds during the -rammer In open air
and tent work.
Llttlo Jack, he said, when his
mother was put in or,, ot the life
boats, refused to go with her. He
told them he would stay with his
father and let the women be saved.
No persuasion could induce him to
go in the boat. Clasping his father's
hand he was seen awaiting the sinking of the ship.

Improving  Conditions on the  Farm
Through Systematic Work
Only a few years back it was the
fashion, whenever conversation turned upon life on the farm, to shake
one's head1 and quote statistics from
tho Insautty records about tho farmer's wife. The hard work, the Isolation, the monotonous existence, did
indeed, prove too much for farm women, and It was out of tho dire extremity of their case that salvation
was evolved. Suddenly the convict-
Ion established itself here and there
about the country that It did not really havo to be, that tho answer was
itot In filling tho asylums, nor yet in
forsaking the farm for tho city, but
in changing farm conditions, socializing the farm as lt were.
In the .as1, decade club women have
become 'leeply Interested. Mrs.
Loylied, out of Minnesota, is reputed
to have aon-3 yeoman service In her
effort to curry club life Into tho rural
districts. And city women have
grown keen over the little farm Idea.
Around every large town little farm
projects fare on the increase. Clinton j
M. Shults, editor of the Farm World,
of Chicago, says that In a most positive way women are lending their
Influence to tho spread of the llttlo
farm idea. They are becoming land I
owners to an extent never before !
known in this or any other country.'
Most Important and most fur-
reaching of all movements along this!
lino of deepening Interest in farm j
life has been, according to the New
Vork Post, the organization of the International Congress of Farm Women,
'Ihe originator of tho plan, Mrs. John
T. Burns, evolved it out of her work
with her husband, who is secretary of
thc International Dry-Farming Congress in his labors for the advancement of the new agriculture.
The organization of these industrious, self-.-uerideing, toiling, energetic,
long-stiff u-lng, yet patient women is
a wonderful thing the moro ono
thinks of it, for they have been working away quietly at their varied tasks
at home without any oue making any
special plans to assist them, or concerning themselves very much about
Ihelr welfare and well-being. Within
the last few years, however, the better country life agitation and the improvement of hygienic and sanitary
condition-, of the homes of all lands
have advanced with a tremendous
force behind them—backed by the
scholarly men and women of all nations, whoso aim has bcen to do something of lasting benefit to humuanlty.
The objects of the Congress are to
Improve -he conditions, financial, physical, social and spiritual of agricultural homes. It aims to understand
more completely the signitlcanco of
the farm to the life of the nations and
the dlgniiy of the position of the farm
woman as co-worker In tho most potential and far-reaching of the national industries; to increase conservation of energy through Intercourse
and observation of procc.isei.; under-
si and ing of the modern appliances and
education In scientific management of
work; to develop further the home
through '-rnfeivnce with authority experts on dairy methods, poultry culture, kitchen gardening, improved
methods of equlplng the house, problems of nutrition, children's welfare.

economics, the Increase and proper
use of leisure and the stimulation
