National Park in East
Will Extend from Banff to the Big
American National Park In
Victoria, May 30.—Proposals for
the establishment ol a British Columbia National Park in the Kootenays
were advanced tentatively to the
Timber and Forestry commissions,
Fulton and Flumerfclt taking their
seats. A. S. Goodeve, M. P., third
member of tbe commission, had not
yet arrived in the capital, but is expected to be present at today's sit
ting, when pulp and pulp wood interests will be neard.
The chairman prefaced bis proposal
witb an interesting explanation of
steps in a similar direction already
taken by the United States author 1-
ties who have reserved as a park an
extensive area extending from* the
prairies to the north fork of tho
Flat-bead river on tbe west and comprising in all some 1350 square miles
This area was formerly under reserve
aa a forest but its classification has
recently been changed to that of a
National Park. It is desired that
British Columbia shall establish a
similar National Park on this side
of tbe boundary line, tacking on to
the American park at the- international Une.
Such a Provincial park would con
nect on one side with the Alberta
park reserve and on the other with
the National Park of Canada, intelligent provisions thus being made fot
tbe protection of game in its annual
migration north and south. The area
proposed to be devoted to such National park purchased by British Columbia is roughly about two hundred
square miles while the Alberta area
connecting is somewhat larger as
also that of the American reserve.
It ia contemplated that adequate
provisions shall be made for tbe
ut Heat ion of the natural reservation,
mineral, etc., within the proposed
park boundaries the desired reserve
limits being solely for a forest and
game protection purposes. A paper
elaborating the proposals advanced
by Mr. Chapman ln the witness box
will be prepared and presented later
to the commissioners.
ramental purposes. No brewery or
distillery situated in a Scott Act
district can sell for local consumption, the product must be shipped
out, and can only be consigned to a
district tn which the Hcott Act Is not
in operation. No merchant or trader, or wholesaler, even though ul
ready established iu a Scott Act district, can sell for local consumption
except lor medical purposes, on tbe
other hand there is nothing to prevent the unlimited importation ot
liquor from the outside so long as i\
is purchased and paid for on the outside. The administration of the Act
and its penalties are so drastic as to
be unfair and un-English. Unlimited
power is placed in the hands oi local
magistrates against whose decision,
if they are of the status of a stlpen
dary, there is no appeal. An amendment has recently heen incorporates
which throws the onus of an nccused,
who must prove his innocence, in
stead of an accuser to prove his
guilt. The penalty for a llrst offence Is ?50 or a month's imprisonment, for a second offence $100 or
two month's Imprisonment, and foi
a third and every subsequent offence
imprisonment for four months WITH
most unrestricted authority is given
to search premises, even including
private houses, to discover liquor
where it is supposed to be kept or
used in violation of the Act. In
short, when the penalties and the
administration of the Act arc taken
into consideration it will be seen that
it imposes conditions to which no
self respecting British people would
submit; which accounts for its abject failure by alienating public sym
patby and arousing the hostility ol
law abiding citizens.
Such is the Scott Act which Dr.
Spencer seeks to impose upon the
subjects of a King who established a
universal reputation , for British Jus
tics and fair play.

it is possible to secure the requisite
number of men to push the work to
completion as quickly as possible.
Says His Schooner Passed Through
Tail of ILlIey's tomot
• Montreal, May 27.—Capt. Roberts,
of the schooner Minnie Maud of
Gapse, now in port, is convinced
tbat his craft passed through the
tail of 'the comet. On the night of
the 87th, when bis schooner was off
Point De Monts, about 250 miies below Quebec, the watch became conscious of a heavy sickening odor in
the air. It became so opuressive

Several transfers of city property
were made during the week.
A number of outside parties were
in the city seekiing information regarding residential property on Baker Hill.
The city purchased four lots on
Norhury avenue for Municipal buildings and Fire Hall this week.
A large number of private residences are being erected. Several
stores on Durick avenue, the Y. M.

The above news will be very satisfactory to the residents of the Kootenay valley, who have had a natural
anxiety to learn just what the intention of the railway company was
with respect to the construction
of this important artery of com^-
meree. But while there was no
doubt that the road would be built,
the question has been when and where
the connection to the south would
be made? It would appear from reports received, that tbe southern
connection will be at or near Galloway. The building of thirty miles,
this year, will carry construction to
Steele, and give to the pioneer city
much needed, and long expected railway connection with the outside
world. In other words the objective
point for thiB year is Fort Steele.
The proposed route will open up a
vast mineral territory on the west
side of the Kootenay river, extending from Elk river to Windermere,

Archibald Leitch, Sr., a pioneer
lumberman of this district died ou
Monday at noon.
It was about 12.20 a. in., when the
news was flashed around town that
Archie Leitch had suddenly died from
heart failure. Tbe news came as a
bolt from the blue, for only half an
hour previous Mr. Leitch was seen on
the street, He had returned home
and was about to remove his coat,
preparatory to going to lunch, when
he dropped to the floor, and when
his son "Archie,Jr." attempted to
assist him to rise, he found that he
was dead. Dr. Connolly was quickly summoned,but life was extinct.
With the exception of his son
George, and his daughter Mrs. E.
Paterson, his family were present,
and could hardly realize that thc
husband and father was dead.
Tbe sad news was quickly circulated through the city and received
with incredulity, but when confirmed,
sorrow and sympathy was expressed
by the entire community.
The funeral took place from thc
family residence Wednesday afternoon when a very large number of
friends, business men and residents
of the city assembled, and followed
his remains to the grave.
Mr. Leitch, being a member of thc
Masonic fraternity, Cranbrook Lodge
A. F. & A.M., attended the funeral
in a body.
The ceremony at the residence was
most impressive; Rev. C. O. Main
The pall-bearers were Messrs. W. E.
Hamilton, of Passburg, Alta., A.
McDougal, of Fernie, P. Lund of
Wardner, James Finlay and 8. Rich
ards, of Cranbrook.
Rev. C. 0. Main, conducted the
services at the grave, where a large
number of friends and citizens had
gathered. After the conclusion of
prayers by Rev. Main; Worshipful
Master E. Elwell of Crarrferook Lodge

The floral  tributes,  which   covered
the coffin, and were carried to *tfie
grave in a carriage, were a marked
and pleasing tribute to the esteem
and affection in which the deceased
was held by friends and acquaintances.
Archibald Leitch, Sr., waa born at
La Prairie, Quebec, and was 62 years
of age. In bis early manhood he
was engaged in the lumber industry
on the Ottawa river. In 1883 be engaged in the lumbering business at
Sudbury, Ont., and in 1888, with
three of his brothers engaged in the
flour milling industry at Oak I>ake,
Man., and in 1897 came to Southeast Kootenay. He came in from
Golden, by stage to Fort Steele, and
then visited the Cranbrook estate,
then owned, by the late Colonel
James Baker. He very quickly
recognized the great possibilities of
lumbering, immediately made all the
necessary arrangements with Colonel
Baker, went east and procured the
necessary milling machinery, which
In the fall of that year, came in by
wagon from Golden on the main line
of the C. P. R., via Fort Steele to
Cranbrook. It was in 1902 when
Mr. Leitch formed the company now
known as the East Kootenay Lumber
Co., of which he was president and
general manager.
Mr. Leitch was identified with a
number of local enterprises, and was
one of the most progressive business
men in Cranbrook. He was a man
among men; a friend to the needy,
a man that you could meet on the
square, ever ready to shake hands
with the lumberjack in the woods, or
thc business man in his oflice. He
always bad a smile and a kind word
for all. "No better man than Archibald Leitch, Sr., ever lived."

Mr. A. S. Goodeve, M. P tor \\oo

newspaper interview, that thfl recent
sessiou of thc Dominion House has
brought out iu a mure marked man
ner than any previous session, the
fact that tbe government s Immense
expenditures, many of them Intended
as bribes for various parts of the
country to support government caiuli
dates at election times, were at last
beginning to tell upon tbe nuances ol
the country. The public debt was (^
suming enormous proportions and
would continue to do so more rapid

tbe result ot the government's waste
and extravagance would begiu to tell
on even buoyant revenues.

is a startling increase over what
United States railways cost, name
ly, $58,000 a mile, of Canadian rail

actual cost of the new trauscuntiu-

must be considered wastefully, crim
inally, high. Why is this? The

much: that contractors were being

So in other departments of tbe public service, patronage has been administered to serve the ends of the
party. Sawdust wharves have heen
bought seven times in advance of
what they have been offered to private parties, thnt henchmen of the
party might be benefitted. The revelations in Dr. Pugsley's department
are sufficient to condemn the govern
ment. Yet tlie ministers have become brazen in their declarations
that patronage and partisanship are
supreme at Ottawa. This utter disregard of the country's interests

tho latter. Why is it that tbey arrive at such a conclusion? Simply
that they nave either been "bitten" J
by the wiles of an unscrupulous pro
muter or they have not given the
question the same thought nor exer
cised the same business foresight that
experience has taught them to be
necessary in other lines in which they
have achieved success.
Granted tbat there is no guarantee
in the outcome of a mining venture,
is it not equally true of every other-
business that men     undertake,   be it |
real estate    investment,    merchandis !
ing,     manufacturing,     stock raising,
and so on ad  infinitum.     When    wo j
consider that mining has only come i
into     its own     in the   last 15 or 20 !
years, and is now being conducted on
scientific  and   business  principles,    it i
is safe to say   that just as     large n
remuneration  for capital employed is
being returned from mining as is re- j
turned  hy  a majority of other enterprises.

not only that "all is not gold that

Though there is not much startling news in the weekly budget of
news 11 ceived from the outsido world
this weoki, there is one delightful feature tint seems at present to be ani-
matlng the people of the Kootenay
valley, and that is a spirit of buoyancy nnd hopefulness for tbe future.
There is another pleasant feat tiro
that is pleasant for Orabbrookltes to
contemplate, and that Is that the
eyes 01 the whole Dominion seems to
be turned toward this district. The
railway conditions and tbe delightful certainty that the Kootenay Central is to be commenced at an early
date, nnd its construction pushed,
contributes a large share of credit to
the exuberant fooling that animates
the people of the Kootenay valley.
Thero is a rosy tinted future for the
district, and a cementing influence,
something that makes the heart,
throb with a consciousness of importance, when we consider and think of
tho immense mineral and agricultural
area that is to be developed and
opened up by tbe Kootenay Central
railway, tbat will be under construction.
Southeast Kootenay will not at-1
tain the zenith of her greatness until
the Kootenay Central railway is constructed through the Kootenay val-
ley north and south. Then will she |
rival, yea, eclipse all other mining,
agricultural and fruit growing centers
in this province. It will pay you to
keep yuur eye on the Oranbrook district. There are mines and minerals i
galore and tbe best agricultural and j
fruit raising lands in abundance.
The "Scott Act" is a Dominion
law, and we fail to see the necessity
of forcing it upon the people of
British Columbia. As a temperance
act, it has proped a failure in the
province of Ontario, nnd is scorned
nnd detested in Nova Scotia. Why
force such an infliction on thc people of this province?
We     wonder if Sir Wilfrid  Laurier
will hnve a consultation     witb   Dr.
Spencer when he arrives at  Vancouver.      It    might      mean  a     political
i partnership between    the   Grits   and
] Temperance     party    to    bring hack
I Hritish     Columbia   to   the     Liberal
party.      Hut   it     will take considerable  more than  a  visit  to  the  Pacific
province to  accomplish  such  a political  turn over.

For nine^tenth ol those men in Cobalt who have written most reports
and' given most advice, he said, arc
He thought thu chances good ol
finding similar camps in Cobalt in
thc northern region. Asked about
coal, he said, Canada had none in
the undeveloped regions which would
be more than of Local value, because
tbc rocks were ol too old- formation.

That thc value of the mineral output of Canada in ['.mu was f90,000, |
000, an increase o! lifty per cent over i
that of tive years ago, ami a live fold
Increase over the output of fifteen
years ago, was one of the impressive
facts given hy Prof. VV. G. Miller, On- ■
tario geologist, in an address before
the Empire club at Toronto. Vet
great as the development of the min-
eral industry of the country has been
he showed that there was large room
for expansion. Tbe mineral production per capita of thc United States
mines is $25, while that of Canada is
only about 112.50. Uf the freight
carried by American railways tifi per
cent is minerals or mineral products,
and an even greater proportion might
be carried hy Canadian roads If the
possible developments were realized.
There was no doubt, said Professor
Miller, that in a few years Canada
would be one of the greatest mineral
countries in tbe world.
The present output of the mines of
Ontario is worth about $40,000,000 at
the works or mines. The net value
of the output is about $33,000,000 is
one-third that of the whole Dominion
although this province has no coal
as Nova Scotia and British Columbia
have. In 1899 the output was valued
at $8,000,000, so that there has been
a four-fold increase in ten years.
The railway development of Canada,
Prof. Miller expects, will bring more
mineral discoveries, just as the Canadian Pacific discovered the Sudbury
camp, and tbe Temiskaming & Northern Ontario discovered Cobalt. Sudbury, he said, has more mineral in
sight than any other camp on the
continent or in the world, and will
last for many generations, and the
Ontario government's road, projected
to develop the agricultural regions of
the north, in discovering Cobalt made
known for the first time the existence of precious metals east of thc
Rockies. From that camp there had
been a production of $28,000,080
worth to date, and nearly $20,000,000
distributed in dividends, though the
area is only about four or five sfiuare
miles. The National Transcontinental, which has easily doubled the
accessable area In Canada, with the
Canadian Northern and the line from
Edmonton to Fort Murray, and tbe
Une to which the Dominion govern
ment seems committed, to run to
"Hudson Bay, would make accessable
large areas of land rich in minerals,
for the rocks there were of the same
formation as those in Michigan and
Minnesota, which made those two
states world-famous for the iron ore
and copper. Prof. Miller was confident that the line to Hudson Hay
would pay,,because of the minerals
and) fisheries, even though not a carload of grain were shipped over it.
With regard to the possibilities of
mineral development in tbe Kocky
mountains, the speaker mentioned
that Mexico, having 1,750 miles of the
same range, has had a production of
15,500,000,000 worth of precious met
als, and the United States with 1100
miles of the Rockies, has had about
the same relative production; while
Canada has 1,600 miles of the same
range, and only the fringe of it hap
been developed.
""At present" said Prof. Miller,
"we have the greatest undeveloped
mineral territory in tbe world, offering the greatest opportunity to cap
itaJists and prospectors." He sail
that aa Canada has the most ancient
rockB of the continent and of thi
world it is not surprising to Und its
minerals unique just ns tbe fauna oi
Australia, representing a past age.
are unique, with marsupials like n
kangaroo, and creatures which arc a
cross between birds and mammals
In like manner Canada's minerals ar<
in many respects unique. Wc pro
dilco 80 per cent of the world'-s con
sumption of asbestos in a small are;
in Quebec, used for drop curtains
firemen's clothing, etc. In unturii
and Quebec is found practically nl
the world uses of umber colored tnlci
or isinglasti, thc Irest. for electricu
purposes. About OH per cent of thi
nickel is produced in Ontario, tin
only competitor being New Cale
■donia, a penal colony in tbe Soutji
ern Pacific, which is not able to keei
up with us, We have also Cobalt in
greater abundance than our only rival, Now Caledonia, which has had
to close its mines, nnd the price bus
been brought down from $2.50 n
pound to 75 ccritsf The cobalt ip
used to give a silvery tinge to nick
el. The Sudbury mines contain nickel and copper, and it has been found
possible to get rid of thu sing by h
process which leaves thc two metals
together, making a line alloy called
monal metal, 68 per cent nickel am
32 per cent copper. The spenkei
. showed samples of nickel coinage
which be hoped thc government
would introduce to replace our five
cent piece, as it is much superior to
the American nickel, which wears
Touching briefly on thc subjeft' o'
stocks and bonds, Prof. Miller said
technical mining men always depre
cated booms, because the people get
-bitten and the industry gets blighted. He strongly condemned stock
jobbing, and counselled those thinking of Investing in mining ven
tures to use the same common sense
they would ln other business matters, qnd seek advise from those
competent to give it, and not to go
to the first fakir they   came   arrow.
In the past nine years 425,611 sett
lers have come into Canada from the
United States, while 504,056 have
come from the British Isles in the
same period. In the past five years
370,519 settlers have arrived iu the
provinces of Manitoba, Alberta and
Saskatchewan 80 per cent of whom
were from the United States. For
the calendar year ended December 81,
190«J, 90,000 immigrants have arrived
in Canada from thc     United States.
Ollicial figures show that 10,000
homesteaders from the United Stater,
took up homesteads and pre-empted
during 1900. These 10,000 home
steaders each taking up a homestead
and a half that number of pre-emptions gives 2,406,000 acres taken up
by Americans. The homestead law
compels the cultivation of 30 acres
each year on homesteads and pre
emptions. Under this clause, therefore, next year these 10,000 home
steaders would have 450,000 acres
under cultivation. Presuming they
cultivate wheat and that the acreage gives the same average in 1910
as it gave in 19C9, these homesteaders will produce next year 8,100,000
bushels of wheat additional to the
Western yield. The homestead regulations give every mnn of sound
mind, of 18 years of age 160 acres,
tho condition being payment of $10
entry fee, residence six months in
each year for three years, bringing
30 acres under cultivation each year
and at the end of three years having
n dwelling of at least $306 value.
Arrangements are being made for a
game of base ball between tbc Gon-
zaga College team of Spokane, and

who have harsh, faded and lusterless
hair, who are unattractive simply

slight misfortune.

come soft, silky, bright and luxuriant hair.
