Protect the
Wants More Fire Wardens and
Better Precautions.
The following copy of a letter ad-
uressed by Petor Lund uf Wardner to
Hon. F. J. Fulton, commissioner id
lands, is self explanatory.
Wardner, B.C., May 2D, 1909.
The Hon.  F.   J.  Fulton,  Chief Commissioner, Victoria, B. 0,
Dear Sir—We are now rapidly approaching the time of the year when
the entire province will be under
great danger of being burned over by
bush tires. During the months of
July, August and September tlie weather is usually very lavorable for
bush (ires, and it is usually during
these months that the annual wanton
destruction uf timber and other property takes place. The government
must tind some adequate means ol
preventing these fires being started
and Borne more aggressive and effect
Ive method must be adopted in con
nectlon with stopping them after they
have been started and are under way.
An increased number of fire wardens
must be provided during the months
of July, August nnd September each
year. Take for example the Crow's
Nest district between Kootenay river
in Kast Kootenay and Kootenay
Landing in West Kootenay. Along
the Crow's Nest Railway their should
be at least five fire wardens. These
men should be experienced bush men
and fire fighters and no ordinary government officials. In addition to
these men, it would, uf course be necessary to station fire wardens at different points in the more isolated localities such as Wasa, Windermere
and one south of tho Crow's Nest
Pass on Gold Creek and the Yank
river. In addition to these fire wardens every provincial police should
take some responsibility in connection with this matter.
I would consider it wise that every
person or persons entering the timber
areas uf British Columbia during the
hot months for any purpose, whether
it is a cruising party, prospector,
fisherman, hunter or pleasure seeker,
should be compelled to obtain a permit from the nearest provincial police
or fire warden and in securing this
permit a copy of the Fire Act should
he handed them and the precautions
necessary thoroughly explained.
A vigorous campaign of education
undertaken by the government, aside
from the arrangements already mentioned, is the only means by which
bush fires will be eliminated in the
interior and mountainous districts of
British Columbia during this season
of the year.
Every man, woman and child living
In this province must be taught first,
the absolute necessity of preventing
the timber growth ol the country
from being destroyed by fires; second
the disastrous and unfortunate results
that are sure to occur if destruction
the timber growth of the country
is not prevented.
I might cite one instance, which, if
given the proper study and attention
the absolute necessity of taking every
precautionary measure towards tin
preservation of the timber growth in
our mountainous districts of British
Columbia. Until a few years ago
British Columbia was known only as
a mineral and mining section. The
interior of the province at that time
was overrun by people who were looking for mineral. There were thousands of prospectors scattered
through the mountains every year for
a . jod of 15 or 20 years. The province was then heavily timbered
throughout. In order that the work
of these prospectors might be facilitated and that the nature of the
ground would be more readily ascer
tatnetl, bush llres were evidently started in many places for this purpose
and in tbc high regions where there
was not sufficient moisture to give
adequate protection, the timber was
entirely destroyed, It is a well known
fact, that, following up the period
mentioned, disastrous freshets took
place early each spring and the mountain Knows wore melted during the
first hot days in the spring and all
the moisture of the country ran off In
two or three weeks' time, after which
the country experienced droughts that
prevented the growth of ordinary vegetation.
I am informed by stock men and
ranchers that for a number of years
as a result of these bush fires there
was scarcely sufficient moisture during the summer month* to produce
vegetation necessary to keep the game
and domestic animals from starvation.
In later years we find that In the
interior of British Columbia, iu the
the former burnt and denuded district*, there is a fresh growth of jack
pine which has grown very rapidly
and stands very thickly upon the
ground and has now reached a height
of 40 to 50 feet. The growth is holding the moisture in the mountains,
which causes the annual spring freshets to come on later each year. For
example ten or twelve years ago the
water in the Kootenays were at their
heighest between the 15th day of May
nnd the lot day of June. During latter yenrs these streams have been at
their highest between the 1st day of
June nnd the Kith day of June. In
the spring of 190R wo experienced the
highest water in the Kootenay river
on the 7th day of July; in fact, as
conditions are at present our rivers
are welt filled all summer and as the
timber growth increases It is evident
that additional moisture will he rc<
tallied, that excessive freshets tn the
spring of the year will eventually be
prevented, excepting In extreme enses
and that the flow from our mountain
streams will be uniform and normal
throughout the summer months,
which cannot but have a desirable effect upon the country and Its people.
We have frequently heard the old
settlers and cattle ranchers In the
province of Alberta, proclaim tbgt It

Naval Debate. Tlie Kins won.
The government has expressed its
confidence in Mr. Pugsley, says this
Toronto News, but the normal majority was reduced to 27. It is said
that cabinet colleagues uf the accused
minister were careful tu be absent at
the time of the division. No wonder,
"The pride of New Brunswick" made
a defence so reckless and su manifestly untrue that he amazed the opposition and disquieted the government.
The   Central     Railway Commission
had the facts, justified by sworn test
imuny, and it     was perfectly useless
for the minister to attempt to   controvert  them  by  random  statements
reflecting     on     the character of the'
commissioners.   His     speech was     a
lame and     puerile attempt at whole
sale denial, and Mr. Crochet, who foi-
lowed him smashed it to pieces.   But
enough   liberal members had handed i
their judgment to the caucus to do- '
feat the Crothers resolution, and keep
this discredited minister in office.
They voted in favor uf a man who ;
"lost" $134,000 in the expenditure of
a little over $900,000. No one can
tell where that money has gone. Mr.
Pugsley's attempt to trace it was a j
complete and utter failure, and he
knew it. He dared not stay in his ■
place and answer the questions of the \
opposition speakers. The story of the \
Central Railway exploitation Is so j
amasing and the evidence su eonclu
sive that any member of parliament
who voted to whitewash Mr. Pugsley i
must have something wrong with his
intellectual machinery. Party slavery j
may have compelled some, for the
whip hand of the premier is strong j
His imperial commands are nut to be i
disregarded with impunity.
But what of Sir Wilfrid Laurier ?!
Where is the tine fury he exhibited iu
189.6 against the boodlers of the old i
regime ? Where is that flame of indignation which consumed the wast-1
rs of public money ? Where is the I
promise of honest government ? If he
can accept Mr. Pugsley as his colleague he displays a cynical disregard of his duty and a carelessness
of his pledges that mark him as a
man utterly unworthy of the ennti-
dence which the country has reposed
in him.
Cranbrook, the chief divisional
point on the Crow's Nest Pass mil-
way, is situated in a beautiful wooded prairie near the southern end oi
the Kootenay river valley. It is an
important business place, the centre
of a fine agricultural nnd lumbering
district, and a distributing point for
supplies. The population is about
3,500 and steadily increasing. Four
large sawmills with a daily capacity
of about ltiO.OilO feet, are located in
the town by a branch railway. It has
a good waterworks system, banks,
churches, hotels and schools. The
building of the Kootenay Central
railway will add much to Cranbrook's
wealth and importance."
Tragedy at Picnic averted.
Ymir, B. C , May 25—Miss Cynthia
Barkley, tlie 17 year old daughter of
William Barkley, who is an extensive
rancher below Erie, B. C, had a narrow escape from death yesterday In
Beaver Creek.
A picnic party made up of young
people from Erie and Salmo went to
Beaver canyon and Miss Barkley in
attempting to cross the stream below the falls assisted by Lorne Ettcr,
slipped into the icy waters and was
instantly swept away. Fortunately,
the young woman never lost her head
but managed to regain the bank,
where she was speedily assisted by
the remainder of the party.

days and for a number of years, the

exhausted during the summer. Such
Intense droughts had been experienced
It was pointed out, that great cracks
or fissures bad been made in the
earth owing to the lack of moisture
and during that period it was necessary for the limited number ol cattlemen located in Alberta at that time
to drive their Hocks from one district to another in order to keep
them from starving.
This cannot but he taken as a direct result of destruction of timber
growth in the mountains, there being
nothing to hold tlie snow and moisture that nature had Intended for the
purpose of providing evaporation and
distribution of moisture during the
summer. Now that a wise providence
has provided a new timber growth
for us, let us take care of it and improve it, and also encourage and improve the conditions that have made
it possible to grow 40 bushels of
wheat per acre in the province of Alberta annually, instead of the country lying a barren waste.

Mr. Asquith declined to commit
nlmself beyond saying that everything would depend upon geographical conditions. He said he could not
treat powers thousands of miles distant the same as powers only bun
dreds of miles away. As an instance
be declared the United States bad
more battleships now than Germany,
but it was impossible to regard them
for aggressive purposes in the same
category as those of France, Germany
or Austria.
A. J. Balfour and other unionists
expressed their dissatisfaction over
Mr. Asquith's reply but the house by
a large majority adopted a motion of
confidence in the premier's statement.
It is reported that Admiral Sir
John Fisher, senior naval lord of the

Epsom, May 26—King Edward's
brown colt Minoru today justified his
name, which is Japanese fur success,
by winnining the Derby, which will
be remembered in the annals of B3p
soin as one of the finest ever run on
that historic track. W, Raphael's
Louvlers with France's star jockey
Stern, on his back, came tinder the
wire so close an attendant upon Mln
oru that tho spectators were undertd
ed which led until the king's number
was displayed on the blackboard.
Lord Michelham's William the Fourth
was a good third, and hall a dozen
of the fifteen starters were well
bunched behind.
But one horse was seen leading the
! Held riderless. It was the American
bred colt Sir Martin, which everyone
had reckoned as Minoru's foremost
rival. He had been crowded out of
his stride just beyond tho Tottenham
corner about the middle of the course
and Jockey J. H. Martin shot over
his mount's head to the ground as
Sir Martin stumbled and with him
fell the hopes of hundreds uf confident
onlookers and many thousands of American dollars were lost.
To Englishmen, even those who had
staked their money on some other
horse, the king's success was inspiring as a victory in a great international contest and compensated for
the rain which drove across the field,
making a wallow of mud under foot, j
On every side it bad been asked whe-,
ther, if he won, bis majesty would
consider it compatible with his exalt-
ed position to lead his horso from the
track, as the winning owners have
done for more than a century. There;
was no precedent for this, because no
king before had over won the derby.!
King Edward, however, with the |
prince of wales following him, lived
up to the custom and in the minds of
Englishmen clinched his claims to the
title of a thoroughbred sportsman.
Only the accident to Sir Mnrtin and
the rain marred the day's sport. Electric boy was the horse that crowded the American colt, which at the
Lime was well up to the fore and running very strongly. Louis Winans,
his owner, said tonight that it. was a
regrettable accident, but. nothing
more. To many Americans on the
race track and un both sides of the
Atlantic it will seem a calamity judging from the amount of money which
some estimate at $300,000 that was
up on the Kentucky bred colt. This
large amount of money placed on Sir
Mnrtin sent his price to 3 to 1 and
made him a nominal favorite for n
time. At the time of- the accident
Brooklands was leading with Louv-
iers close up and Sir Martin, Minoru,
Bayardo and Valeus forming the second flight. Jockey Martin was badly
bruised from the fall and Ins forehead was bleeding from a cut where
the hoof of one of the other horses j
had grazed him, hut the doctors who
examined him said be would be all
right in a day or two.
The French contingent which came
over to see Stern win on Louvicrs
showed almost as much disappointment as the Americans.
The field of fifteen was sent away
to an exceptionally good start.
Brookland set the running with Louvlers for the first mile, with the kings
colt well placed in fifth position. Approaching Tottenham corner Minoru
improved his position and stalling
off close to the home stretch a strung
challenge by Louvicrs, he won by the
shortest of short heads. As soon as
the horses entered the straight and
the crowd recognised that the king's
colors were in front, the cheering began. Gradually the enthusiasm spread
over the Downs and the cheers were
great in volume as Minoru was tit
the judges' box. The victory was so
narrow that there was a moment's
hesitation ponding the judges' verdict
but when the Royaf number was
hoisted to the top of the board a
great roar burst out. afresh and foi

said Louis Pratt of Nelson, who was
in the city today. "That means, at

Interested parties then expected that

it. The concession made by the senate yesterday on the low grade ore
Is of no advantage because it is not
at all practicable for Canadian ship

it because of the freight rates. No-

The result is plain. It means that

the following story from B C. and receive the hope it gives to

"Mrs. Worden has taken four bottles ol PSYCHINE and it has made a new

to do her work, and now she can do it without f.cling the least fatigue. I will
stronglv recommend PSYCHINE to any one.   It will relieve their suffering."

God for PSYCRlNE, the Greatest of T.-uics, and ninny wore on llie vcrgo of decline before they
heard of it. But no mutter how fur gone, PSYCHINE hue proved their friend and wrought

No Man is Stronger
Than His Stomach,
A strong man is strong ull over.   No man can be
itrontf who is suffering from weak stotlrch with its
consequent indigestion, or fron- jome other disease
of the stomach and its associated organs, which impairs digestion and nutrition.   For when the stomach
is weak or diseaned there is a '.oss of the nutrition
contained in food, which is the source of all physical
strength.   When a man ''doesn't feel just right,"
when he doesn't sleep well, has an  uncomfortable
feeling in the stomach after eating, is languid, nervous, irritable and de puml
•at, he is losing the nutrition needed to make strength.
Such a man should use  Dr,  Pierce's   Golden Met'   ii
