United States. Whilst there is -still

hud ever Iutii deemed obtainable
Naturally opinions differ widely us
to the effects the reciprocal arrangements will have. Speaking generally
the concensus ol opinion, trom end lu
end uf the Dominion appears to be
distinctly favorable to the new trade
agreement, although there arc not
wanting very decided notes ol objection. On the whole Mr. Fielding appears to have consummated trade

Finance Minister Fielding's speech on
introducing tho new- arrangement to
the house of commons nt Ottawa:
Mr. Fielding said at the beginning
that the government had been criticized for re-opcnlng reciprocity no
gotiatious with tho United States,
It seemed strange Ij' members of the
government that there should be an>

Mi Fielding then went back to the
treaty ol 18M, Allot it had lieen in

in operation it brought prosperltj

So. from the beginning of confedei
ahuii, the policy of .ill political pat
ties wns the s.iuii' with regard to
reclproclt) in the tarifl of 1868
their was carried a standing offei ol
reciprocity to the i nited States, fn
I8T0 a standing offer was again in
serted. lu is?i Sn loim Macdonald
endeavored to bring about rummer
rial reciprocity, hut he was unsuccessful. *ln 187-1 lion. Alex. Mac
K enisle took up the question ol reciprocity. Itighi un in the days ut
Conservative governments and Liberal governments Ihe desire fur rceipru
city was always expressed, Oue uf
the strongest arguments used in regard to the -National policy of 1878
was thnt it won hi force the Americans to grunt reciprocity tu Canada.
Tlie minister of finance quoted a
proclamation of the Conservative
government of 1878, which enumerated articles thai would lie admitted
free to Camilla on tbe condition that
the same articles were admitted tree
from Canada to the I'nited States.
These were fur the most part natural products. Indeed, the Conservative government sent commissioners
to Washington to conduct negotla
tions for reciprocity, hut were inisiic-
tleclarcd that iu all negotiations he
had had with that distinguished statesman, he had found him actuated by
ihe strongest desire to accomplish
Coming down to the recently con
eluded conference, Mr. Fielding said
tlie Canadian government had willingly acquiesced, In Mr. Tail's request
lo continue the negotiations at Wash
ington for a broader treaty
In view uf the history of the past
the government thought thc psycho!
ogfeal time had come to treat with
the t nited States It was thought
the I'nited States had learned their
lesson, ami that their statesmen
would he willing to negotiate with
Canada in a free and friendly way

understanding, and the mlnlstei hop-
.il the country would join in saying
that both Canada and the t nited
States were gainers.

tIons Canada has not bound itself
in auv way, so if nt nny time Can
nda funis arrangement now entered
into was not profitable tu Canada,

and no one could make auv complaint."
Mr Fielding laid emphasis upon the
tail lhat  there     was no treaty, that
it was a legtilntlve act of Canada
and that it could be changed at anv

Canada it would also he tree in the
I'nitcd States On another list of
articles thorn would be a similar rate
ol duty imposed h\ hoth countries
The United States had agreed to
route down to Canada's rates and in
some cases had come down heluw the
Canadian rale. Canada has there
(me made moderate reductions, while
the United States on the whole has
made quite large reductions,
One schedule shows thc rates
which the United States will impose
on Canada's goods and another schedule* shows that which the Canadian
government will impose on United
States products. The idea of reciprocity ran right through the arrangc-
[mcnU, although there is no treaty
Mr Iiorden asked if there was
nothing in the nature ol a treaty
now how was this to he done?
Mr. Fielding said that there was
not a treaty and nothing was binding
lu this ease. It rested on general
confidence, general goodwill and a
genernl feeling thnt this was for the
benefit of both countries.
As an Illustration, Canada's reduction on   wheat   was 13 per cent and
U. C. Owen—"What will he the
duty on uur wheat going into the
United states?"
Mr. Fielding— "Nothing; not n
cent." (Loud cheers,) The minister continued: "Barley Is free also.
Canada's reduction is 15 cents a bushel. Tlie U. S. reduction Is 30
cents. Potatoes are now free. Canada's reduction is 2b cents a hushel
and the U. S. 25 cents a hushel.
Oats are free. Canada's reduction is
10 cents and the C. S. reduction 15
cents a bushel.
"Flour is now to he dutiable at a
common rate of 50 cents per barrel,
Itough and sawn lumber is made
free. It was already free in Canada. It becomes free to the I'. S.

"It has always been grievance, particularly in Ontario, thai lhe duty on I
coal bore heavily on tlie people. So ;

heen reduced ten cents, and the duty i
on coal reduced h cents, The coal
people will have to hear a cut of 8 j

East Kootenay Associated Boards of Trade
Proposed Extension of Canadian Norther Railway into Cranbrook. — Government Asked to Take Immediate Action
Dealing with Forest Fire Protection.
Last Thursday evening the ad
ioiirned annual general meeting ul the
Associated Hoards of Trade of Knst
Kootenay was to have taken place.
Unfortunately the attendance did
nut justify the meeting heing held,
only Fernle, of the outside hoards,
being represented. This stale of at
fairs was due to (he disorganization
of railroad traffic, consequent upon
weather conditions. Uut u meeting

the interior was onh about one-
quarter that at the coast, while the
rentals on interior timber were $115
per mile, those at the coast being
$110 per mile. Taking into consideration the inferior quality of Inter
ior timber owing tu iln- smaller
growth, this was considered most unfair, and the governnienl, in framing
its new forestry legislation, was ask
ed to place these rentals upon a more
eipiitable basis.
Another resolution adopted called
the attention uf the government to
the fact that, contrary to the
statutes, a large amount of timber
wns being removed from mineral
claims uud placed upon lhe mnri.it*
The association Btrongly endorsed

who have Invested iheir monej in
these limber berths and erected immense plants in the expectation ut
having an adequate timber supply is
obvious, in the view of the lumbermen, and it is hoped, when the mat

the governnienl will adopt a more

Mr. Fielding repeated the history ol

Mr. Fielding said in reply lo Mr
Borden that the objeel or the government was to maintain (he Hritish
preference, and so they thought that
there would have to be—If this arrangement witli thr United States
went into effect—a rearrangement of
the present tarill with ;t view lo ad
justing the British preference tn the
new conditions created.
Mr. Borden, tho Conservative leader, criticised Mr. Fielding's lack of
information on some points. For Instance, if half a do/en items m this
agreement were altered now oi in a
couple ol yeais what would happen?
Mr. Fielding said this agreement
could hi- changed at any time. II
was for the benefit ol both.
Mr. Borden said that was an extraordinary agreement. Ii wns for no

had stood firm lust year It would
not ha*e been lorced to ghe concessions to the 1 nited States and would
not be forced into these negotiations
as the finance minister had seemed
to intimate.
Mr. Horden stated that an analysis
of the agreement as Mr. Fielding
told ol It, showed thnt on ngrlctil
turnl implements the charge to the
farmer in the future would not he

reductions would he discussed later
on; their smallncss would be shown
and their laek of use The United !
States In the past and in 'the future
would fix their tiirifl in the Interests
of Iheir own people. That was the
I'nited States policy and it was up I
to the gOVcrnmenl o! Canada lo hv
our larin similarly withoui yielding
to their demands.
! The Conservative party stood fm
reciprocity within the greal British
Kmpire, Tho Conservative parly he
lleved that to that great end Canada
should     keep itself free from cntnng-
| Htig Influences. This great ideal,
reciprocity witli the empire, should
lir kepi hefoie the people or Cnmuln
and should be Ihi- teaching of hei
statesmen.    This was ihr ftiiiire   loi

I Hui this announcement of today
i was    entirely ut variance with     the
ideal for Canada For thirty yenrs

Toronto Cllobo-That the proposed
agreement will he distinctly popular
in ihe Dominion is certain, if tho cry
oi the people ol the United States
un a wider source of food supply
was a genuine one it should be
equally popular there. Whether or
nol lhe agreement is ratified by congress, it will stand as a most eon
\hieing proof nf the desire of the
governments of the two countries to
end ihr days of tarifl wars and bring
in an cm ol neighborly consideration
Friendship ami fair dealing are butter than strife and suspicion. Messrs.
Fielding nnd paterson huve shown
thai good relations w.th lhe United
ihai good relations with (lie l tilted

cal pollcj  iu the Dominion.
Vnncouvei News*Advertiser—In the

llie tarill reductions it is hard lo es
Umato ihe balance of advantage, hut
it is plain lhat if the arrangement

j.tmie a treaty.
The News Advertiser thinks the
Ircatj will be accepted by lhe Canadian parliament, but looks for determined opposition from New Kngland.
Calgary Alberlan—The reciprocity
agreement, wliich lias been arranged
h I ween Canada and the United
.-'tales on the whole Is very satisfactory, ami ns far as it goes will be
received with satisfaction in this part
f ihe west. The removal hy the
i nited States of the duly upon
wheal is very satisfactory to farm-
• i - now in Western Canada and will
have the result of very greatly Increasing the stream of immigration
ol the very hesl sort, whieh is pouring into (his country from lhe western stales.
Winnipeg Fiee Cress—The results
<j the prolonged negotiations he
I ween lhe Canadian and American
governments are now before the
people. The scope of the changes
which have been agreed to is undoubtedly wider than had been anti
eipated. While iu a matter of su
much moment hurried judgments
in.iv call for revision, ii may be
sold, we think, that the people of
Canada as a whole will be wcll-satis-
lieil with the conclusions which have
been leached.
The outstanding feature of the lar-
ill is the complete reciprocity iu
.ijm products. This will undoubtedly be popular with the farmers
both of the east mid ol the west.
Hie good limes in the eastern provinces during lhe life of the Elgin
liealy is a matter of tradition, ami
there is no doubt that the opening
of the markets of the greal American
cities to (he products ol the eastern
farms will he acceptable and profitable to tbo eastern farmer. In tbe
west, free wheat and free access to
tin- Chicago market lor his cattle
will undoubtedly appeal very strong-
It   to ihe cultivator of the soil.
Lethbridge Herald—There is joy
among the newspaper men of Canada
over one Item iu the reciprocity
treaty. The duty on linotypes has
boon removed.
The Alberta and Eastern British
Columbia Press association was the
tost iu Canada io take up this
matter, and one by one the othei
piess associations hacked them tip,
the Canadian Cress association being
von active. Recently, Mr. W. A.
Buchanan, who is president of the
\ .\ K, H c Press association, at
the request of that association, went
to Ottawa to press ihis matter on
the government.
Calgary Herald—You never know-
how much wisdom there is bottled
up in this world until you get a
rh of men talking about the tarifl. Some men who would have to
mi and form a joint stock company to pay the first instalment on a
luge, stamp can tell yoll all about
how the reduction In sail fish will
nltecl Iho price of winter wheal on
Febiuary 20, next year.
"Canada gives ap more than she
should have," is the pronouncement
• •I Kwing Hut ban, president of the
Vancniivei hoard ol trade and the
Canadian dub in nn interview. Other
prominent Vancouver men speak
pessimistically, including II. A. j
Stone, former president ot the hoard ;
of tiade, who says thai in regard to
fiee paper and wood pulp in exchange
Im dee wood pulp he docs mil think
thai (he hail ol Bit paper should lu
dlico lhe provinces lo run the risk ol
losing the valuable industry of paper
manufacturing in Canada.
Some views have been gathered regarding free coke, Hritish Columbia
exports more of this commodity
than she imports. Fur some years
Canada bus not Imposed an export
lax, although the slates have taken
duly taxes to the extent of 211 per
cenl of real value on coke consigned
from British Columbia, J. C. Moon
of the British Columbia Klectric
railway, considers il nn advantage to
the province while others interested
share lhe same opinion,
However, pending the filial .schedule
heing placed before the people, the
majority of those approached prefer
remaining silent There are over
three hundred coke ovens at Fernle,
while Coiilox is also a center of the
industrv, which must benefit, for
(here will ho considerable saving estimated at it Innii three million dollars per year, due to the abolition of
the duly ou tlie American side.
However, on ihe Pacific coast, the
coke used is mostly gol from the
stales. The reduction of duly on
uuil from fl.'l to Iii cents t* not looked favorably upon here. Ono thing
upon     which    they here agree, how-
■r, is that a boom will likely arise
tbe Crows Nest dislriel and rolled its prosperity practically all
over British Columbia.
An Ottawa despatch says: British
Columbia members of the house look
upon (he proposed tarifl agreement so
far as it affects fruit as imperilling
the fruit growing industry in that
province. They point out thnt the
ll c fruit growers have little to
gain and all to lose by the removal
ol ihe duty on fruil, They export
small quantities in comparison with
Uu- imports of fruil which will follow the placing of Ihis class on the
free list. Already the competition
ui ihe Washington ami Oregon apple
growers i.s making itself seriously
fell iii British Columbia, Market
gardening will also he hard hit if lhe
arrangement is carried into efleet.
"Il cannot hurt the dealer and it
certainly cannol hurt thc consumer,' ' was tho opinion expressed by
one ol the largest wholesale fruit
dealers in Calgary in discussing tlie
removal of the duty on fruit. "If
lhe wholesalers can lay fruil down iu
Calgary cheaper than they could in
the past, the consumer must reap thu
"I do not think that it will injure
the British Columbia fruit dealers,
as in most classes of fruit their season is later (ban thai further south
and their [mil does not come into di
reel competition with that of tho
United Slates to any great extent.
The British Columbia fruit growers
will still have a great advantage in
Ihr markets nf Alberta owing to the
shorter haul ami the better facilities
of getting their produce on the market more promptly aud in better
condition. This should offset any
had effects of the removal of the
duty, aud they will benefit further by
an enlarged markel, which cheaper
fruit will develop. 1 do not consider they will have much cause for
Thai Canadian lumbermen in general will he well pleased witb the
changes proposed iu connection witb
the duly on lumber entering the
United Slates, is lhe opinion of A.
B. Mcltae, president <»i the Canadian
Western Lumber company, ol Fraser
Mills, B.C., who is in Toronto. Under ihe proposed arrangement the
lumbei men of British Columbia will
he able to enter the great markets
if California, now supplied mainly
from the state of Washington.
By reason of their being able to
use foreign bottoms, u privilege denied lo United Stales shippers, Canadian lumbermen would he able      to
dliligles from 50o. per ium* to 30c.
their United States competitors
That the reduction ol tbe duty on
diiiigles from Mh\ to 1000 to Sffe
ill prove a benefit to Canadian
manufacturers, is also the opinion of
Mr  Mcltae
\ If red Rogers, of I.has Rogers and
iiupariy, coal dealers, Toronto, said
that the placing ol coke on the free
list would give a great impetus to
the eoal mines of the west, purlieu
luily lite Crows Nest company, as
with the ilui) nl sixty cents per ton
removed a market would Ite opened
up in the United States. Bo far as
imiurio was concerned ho could not
Sec that lhe slight reduction in the
duty of coal would make much illfler-
.1. I).   Mc Arthur, ol Winnipeg,    la
peaking of the changes proposed in
the lumber   schedule said lhat      he
iiild not see where It would have
any marked efleet on the local situation. There might be a tendency
for United states mills to .ship their
surplus low grnde material into Canada, ami on the other hand, there
might be a market to thc south lor
lhe belter grades ol Canadian lumber, lie thought that the llritisb
Columbia mills would be more vitally affected than those In this purl ot
lhe country, and in the long run tbe
haiigc would perhaps he to the interest ol the Canadian mills
ll the changes proposed in relation
to pulpwood lind paper come into effect, it might hnve nn influence in
Manitoba inasmuch as the long haul
lo the United Stales' centres ol
consumption would prounbfy make it
more profitable to ship the finished
papvt     ralbei     (bun tbe pulp wood
Then, too, this pari of Canada had a
great advantage In the tremendous
number of water powers available for
development. It might mean thai
there would be large pulp and paper
mills established ou the ground.
J. L. liy lit ml, of Winnipeg, who is
extensively interested in sawmills in
the Fort Francis and Rainy Rlvor
districts, stated Ihal he could nol
see but that the change would he ol
considerable benefit nil round. While
these were not of as sweeping a
character asihad at first, been anticipated, it would have tho efleet ol
equalizing matters between Ununited States and Canada It had
seemed strange In the pasl lhat. Ium
her could come into Canada free
without any interchange. Hy the
new arrangement a number of people
on both sides or the line would

where anyone would tie affected injuriously. Pcrlmps the British Columbia mill men would liml a larger
markel in consequence, hut that
would hu about the only point in the
west affected to any extent.
Martin Burrell, Ml',, for Yolo-
"It is thc crudest and most unjustifiable blow to the fruit Industry
of British Columbia, which is al the
development stage, llic agreement
('(institutes a disaster, and there is
no equivalent given. The present
duty is low. Its removal will allow our markets to he Hooded from
Washington and Oregon."
Premier McBride—"Looking over
tho whole matter us set out in the
despatches from Ottawa, 1 cannot
see in what way the proposals can
be of any benefit to Canada. The
country lias been prospering well;
times have been prosperous and the
country contented; and the advantages to be attained by thc present
proposals are, to my mind, wholly
in favor of'the United States. In
Canada the efleet will be to disorganize trade conditions, injure our
industries and our Canadian lilies of
traffic, and all for tho benefit of the

The reciprocity agreement between
Canada ami the United Stntes lias
been tor several days past, anil will
be for some time to come, lhe ono
great topic ot conversation. Everyone is Interested in tbis new move,
and whilst many imagine tbat their
special Interests mny suffer, the gon-
eral viewpoint appears to bo, that,
if enacted into law, a groat forward
move will have been made in tho
trade relations between the two
count i ies, ;i move that must Inure
very much to the general advantage
of Canada, notwithstanding possible
injury 1< it .tin local and special interests.
li it were reasonable to lake a
purely provincial view cf llie matter,
then- might be good grounds for tils
tlnctly adverse criticism ol the
agreement, Al flrsl glance ii
would appear that tin- special Inter
ests (if Hritish Columbia huve not re

they have alreadj dom
however, their hastily
views will cany Imt little welghi
with ihe thinking people ol the
province, wlm will take no narrow,
sectional view of ,i greal national
So fai as wi- can judge, trom such
information as lias come to hand,
and from ilu- expressions of opinion,
pro aud con, by men whose views
are worth considering, tin m-w larin
agreements, if finally consummated,
will undoubtedly prove an incalctil
able lienelit to iln- prairie provinces,
they will also work irn much lo
tin* advantage "\ Ontario .mil the
Maritime Provinces. This (act alone
would amply justifj thc government's
course iu entering iul<< lhe tiegnlia
tion;' \iitli the I nited Slates govern
ment. .\t the same time, ii is uu
avoidable ibat wc should in weighing
the advantages «.i otherwise of the
agreement, consider carefully the
bcnritiK it h ill hnve upon ihr pro
Kress and prosperity of our own
province It js ;,n ensj woj (f ills
posing nf the question to declare Hint
the placing ol fruit and lumber on
the fid- list will ruin those Indus
tries in tins province. At lirst
glance this might appear to he thc
Inevitable effect of tbis change, but,
we think, mote mature consideration
will warrant an entirely different
In Un- tils! place, when WC asl.
ourselves whal has heen the chief
cause of the recent expansion oi pro
vlncial trade and industry, we have
to admit Mi ' ,i bus been almost cn
tirety dm- to the rapid growth of
the prairie provinci . consequent upon the cnergetii hnmtgratl n policy
ol the Liberal administration. Now
it is freely conceded that tin- new
tarifl arrangement will Imire very
decidedly to ihe advantage of those
provinces, tlmt consequent upon Ihcse
advantages tin- pralrlo provinces will
develop nt even greater strides than
during the past ten years, thereby
rapidly enlarging nur market l"i
fruit and lumhei. Despite any and
all tariff changes wc havo a decided
and Insuperable advantage In those
markets in ihe mattei of location
Transportation charges, which to a
far Rrcatcr extent than larlfl imposts, control the situation, arr ami
will be entirely In favor of the lirit
ish Columbia producers, whether ol
fruit or lumlier. Sn far .is the fiuit
industry is concerned wc have nnt
as yet been able supply our l-*rol
markets. The prairie provinces,
despite tin- importation "f "0 per
cent of their fruit supplies irom the
American side, have taken all that
wc could provide. Witb the further
rapid growth in population ot those
provinces, the drmnnd will increase
proportionally and with tbe distinct advantages in thc matter of
transpoitatimi tbal our fruit growers command, it is decidedly doubtful if the supply, even in direct competition with the pioilmt of Washington and Oregon, will be in excess
of thc demand.
So far as thc lumber industry
concerned much the same cond
apply, save that the American
diicers, who have in Hie past
using the prnirie provinces ns
dumping ground for surplus s
will, temporarily nt any rate,
a better position to continue
policy To Ihis extent it may
thnt our lumbermen will be
disuduuitio'i',   hut   in  the nalim
be in
hint a
•     of
things tbis condition or affairs cannot be permanent, or even ut long
duration, and tin- uttlmate Ibsuc
must he Very decidedly to the ad
vantage of British Columbia lumhei
manufacturers. In the forogolng we
have taken no stock of the fact
that our coast lumbermen's markets
have been greatly increased hy llie
tariff changes, something lhat should
indirectly inure to tbe advantage of
llic interior lumbermen, as competition from that source should he materially lessened.
Thoro can be no iniestlon hut 'bat
our eoal and coke Industries will be
largely benefited by Die new tariff
arrangements, a .stale of affairs that
will in itself inure, directly to Hie
advantage of our local fruit growers
and lumbermen. So far as at pte-
advised we can find nothing In lite
proposed tariff arrangements lhat in
any particular makes for tlie aiUant
ago of nur metalliferous mining interests. We had hoped that some-
thlng would have been scoured for
tho cncoucagcnient of the lead and
/.mc mining industries in particular.
Naturally every section ol the Dom
uiion will look for something Dial
will serve tbe best interests of in
dustrlcs in which it is specially interested, but the men upon whom tbe
task of formulating tariffs, and ui
meeting Die demands of Die other
side, tails, ean only take a large
lew of the case and it they succeed
n formulating a policy that will
make for Die benefit ol the Dominion
as a whole, tbey must rightly be
said lo have performed their dllUcull
task well. We believe Dial full and
lair consideration of nil the facts
will result iu almost universal commendation of the labors of Messrs.
Fielding and Paterson In this con
nectlon, It musl be born iu mind,
however, that nil theli labors mny
u-t go for nought. Tbe tarifl agree
'>n-ii1 arrived at by the Canadian
and United Slates negotiators has
yel tn be adopted by the supreme
legislative bodies of tbe two counties, and whilst lliere is little or no
doubt but that it will receive thc
endorsement of the Canadian parlla
ment, it is extremely doubtful that
it will ever pass the United States
senate. Were it not for Die prescnl
Bituation of the Republican party ft
might off-hand bo,assumed tbat the
agreement would never emerge alive
Horn the U, S. senate, but existing
conditions may hnve a tendency tn
secure its passage. Tbe Ropuhli
cans have nn opportunity of "dish
im;" tbe Democrats, and tbey may
take advantage of it, as Ihey did
.nine few years back by their antitrust legislation, which had lieen Die
main support of tbe Democratic
i latform in the then impending pro
siilentlal election.
Ue lake pleasure iii directing the
attention of the public school teach
ers ni Kasl Kootenay to tbe letter,
published in this issue, from Mr. A.
V, I-'lumerfelt, of Victoria, one ol
the members of the recent forestry
Commission, in which that gentleman
offers a pri/e of $50 for the besl
paper, written by a public school
teacher, ou Die following subject:
"Why and How Musl We Protect Our
forests " Mr- Klumcifelt's object
is an entirely praiseworthy one and
we shall look forward to the publication of some very useful papers on
this subject in due course.
We can only reter very briefly to
lhe various matters discussed at the
meeting of the Associated Hoards oi
Trade of Kast Kootenay last Thurs
day evening, although some of ihem
merit the careful and active consider
at ion or everyone Interested in the
development of this section of our
province, One resolution, in parti*-
ular, is nl very special interest to
all our leaders, that dealing with
the prospective extension of the
Canadian Northern railway into tbis
ilistrict. Snme direct railroad
competition in the Kast Kootenay
district would prove decidedly bene
trial lo our lumbering and fiuit
growing interests, ia addition to aiding materially iu the settling up ot
our vacant lands. We tan but hope
that the committee entrusted with
Die duly of preparing data tot pre
saltation io the head officials of tho
c N. II , will fulfil] their duties
promptly and efficiently
Vtiotber matter dealt wiib nn this
occasion, to which some immediate
attention must be paid, is the question of Forest Fire Protection. At
the time of the presentation oi the
Forestry Commission's report to
thc legislature, il was announced
tbat it was not the intention of the
government to take action thereon,
in the shape of legislative enact
ments, at the present session of the
legislature, It will be generally admitted tbat whilst this course maybe a wise one, so fnr as tbe orirani-
zation of the proposed Forestrj
Department is concerned, it would be
most unfortunate if the government
permitted another year to elapse be
fore taking decisive action in reference to proposed amendments lo regulations at present governing Die
appointment nnd work of tbe fire
wardens. Any person, wbo will take
the trouble to read Mr. Lund's letter on this subject, addressed to thc
chief commissioner of lanils, a copy
of which appears in this issue, will
be convinced of tin- urgent necessity
tbal exists lor prompt action mi the
part ol the government in this con
Chief Wand and the members of the
Cranbrook fire department entertain-
iii a number of representative Citizens ut an informal smoking concert,
in Die rooms at the tire hull last
evening. Ex-Mayor Kink presided,
and among the prominent guests present were Mayor Hunt, Gold Commissioner Armstrong, Rev. E. P.
Flewelllng, Aid. Bowness, Iru Manning and others. The room In which
Die guests ussembted had becu very
tastefully decorated. Cigars and
other refreshments, liquid and solid,
were plentifully provided and everything that the best ol hospitality
could suggest done on thc part ot
the hosts to make the evening aa
enjoyable one. Thc programme included speeches, songs, recitations
and instrumental selections, all ot
which were heartily applauded.
As lhe practical founder of tho
Cranbrook lire department nnd one of
its most active und useful members
for .several years, Ex-Mayor Fink
filled Die position of chairman most
appropriate and acceptably. Mayor
limit, in a neat little speech, eulogized Die Cranbrook fire department
and, wilh an eloquent reference to
Mie famous charge of the Light Rrig-
ade, drove borne his plea in favor of
unswerving loyalty to thc chief. In-
el don tally the mayor promised that
tinder his regime the lire department
should receive every reasonable con-
lideratton and he hoped that the
council would see its way clear to
providing the members of tbe department with new uniforms.
Chief Wand, is some orator, and in
the course of a very appropriate
little speech, took occasion not only
lo extend a very cordial welcome to
ill present and to say some sensible
ihings apropos tire department matters, but to put in a timely and ef-
u'ctivc plea for certain requirements,
Iu tbe first place he alluded to the
need of a chemical engine, and pointed out what a benefit It would prove
m eases of outbreaks ot fire in private residences and stores, largely ob-
iating Die use of water, tnereby
:natly minimizing the damage ton
frequently occasioned in small tires
l.y excessive use of water. Another
point driven home by Chief Wnnd
wns the necessity for some measure
nf insurance on the lives of thc fire
fighters, any one of whom took
chances of losing his life, whenever
duty called him to fight fire. Chief
Wand's little address elicited hearty
applause and teas followed hy the
singing of "For They are .folly Good
Fellows" by all present.
Itev. E. V. Flewelling was the next
to say a few words. Mr. Flewelllng
has always shown himself to be
deeply interested in Ihe welfare of
Die local fire department and his brief
remarks wen- very heartily applauded.
Secretary Sliankland replied to a
toast tu tbe Fire Department. In
tho course ol his remarks, Mr.
Sliankland heartily endorsed the
\ lews of Chief Wand ancnt the need
j >f a chemical engine and insurance
fm the members of the fire department. He referred to the remarks
-if Mayor Hunt in regard to loyalty,
and, and on behalf of all the members ut the fire department, assured
the mayor that the utmost loyalty
unl good will existed on the part of
ev.-ry member to the chief and to one
Uriel addresses were also given by
Md Bowness, Ira Manning and Ed.
Hill. Musical selections were ren-
dorcd hy Messrs. Sowerbutts, Fred
Reeves, Doty, Coleman nnd Lynch,
tbe two latter being artists from
the Edison theatre. Jim Rates gave
snme of his inimitable recitations
and • Secretary Sliankland favored
with a couple of songs.
Altogether a very enjoyable evening was passed hy the guests of the
lire department and it was with the
best of good feeling that thc visitors
departed shortly before midnight.

lieen the chief causes of the delays in
the arrival of all trains from the

in this connection I desire to
polnl out the absolute i.dly in up
pointing lire wardens to cover lhu
difTcreitt districts during two or three
months of the year only. Von know,
perhaps better than anyone else connected with the governmeiil, thu
tremendous loss that has been sustained by tbe province, especially in
South .'-.astern Hritish Columbia,
111111111; the pasl and it appears tbal
up to ibe present time sullieient organized effort on tbe pall of the
government and the people has nut
h.en put forth in this importnnl
mattei It appears to me H1.1t Insl md oi hiring armies ol people and
spending tremendous sums of money
during lhe hot summer months lo
light lires after the lires have been
Started and an* undei way, the got
eminent should appoint larger numbers of lite wardens and give litem
employment during the entire yeai
aud divide up tbe territory to be
covered by each of them so as to enable tin-in t<> cover theli districts
thoroughly and keep iu touch with
the people in every locality ami
carry on a continuous campaign of
education ami have all dangerous
conditions removed 01 looked after.
These tire wardens should he men
who understand tin- work ami who
are, themselves, workers, and by
giving them a starting point, each
one of them would naturally take a
greater interest und then employment ami position would largely de
pend upon then ability t*. safeguard
ihelr district and prevent destruction of forests and other properly hy

\o matter bow well-conceived the
forest policy of any government may
be, its success—or otherwise—de-
Ipeuds directly upon the smypathy
jand co-operation of tbe public. A
tjuptatton given in the Poictttf report puts tbe matter iu a nutshcll-
"The railroad will set tire to its
right-of-way promiscuously and destroy millions of leet of standing
limber and millions of dollars of filiate traffic without an effort towards prevention. The logger will
operate his 'donkey' equally as recklessly, as long as be thinks bis own
proptrty is safe. The farmer will
set a slashing lire that will destroy
bund reds of thousands of acres of adjacent timber, the development of
Wlilcli would bring railroads to liis
doors, build towns and cities In   his
vicinity, increase his markets and
enhance tbe value of bis land. The
cainper will, likewise, leave carelessly a lire to destroy at itn pleasure
property whose loss will be felt by
an entire state."
More and more each year, as this
province develops, manufactures and
mines must depend upon electric
power, agriculture upon irrigation;
both power and irrigation in their
tutu Upon regularity ot water sup
p|v So also does the navigation ot
our rivers and lhe propagation ot
out most important lish—the salmon
Following ibis thought, we find the
steadiness of water supply depending
upon the maintenance of furest
cover, indeed the whole future ot
British Columbia is contingent upon
her forest policy.
As a mere matters of dollars and
cents, wo must educate our people to
take intelligent care of this great
Inheritance. We must conduct a
campaign against forest waste similar to the war we ure waging—
through our schools—against tbat
form ol human waste—tuberculosis,
we must begin With tbe young.
Permit mo to suggest that every
School teacher in the province should
he provided with literature upon the
subject, aud the Initial step might
be taken by the Department ol
Lands furnishing each with a copy ot

ol this problem, I will offer a pri/e

Of Interest to Farmers
In presenting this, a partial report
of Un* proceedings ol the Provincial
Poultry association, 1 regret tliat it
is imi complete irom tho fact thai
owing to poor connections and
blocked I rains en route, although I
left Cranhrook on Monday it was
Kriday afternoon beforo I got to
Victoria, thus missing the whole
forenoon session and pint of the af
tornoon. In a like pllghl wen- tho
Nelson and Summerland directors
nnd also Mr Foley, of Edmonton,
who was listed as one of the chief
attractions on tin- programme. 1
tried to get a copy o( the official report of the convention, hul as thc
Boeretary of the association is also
li\t* stock commissioner, and ihe
dairy, live stock and veterinary as-
sociations were also in convention, he
was tuti much overworked to obtain
it for inc.
1 was glad, however, to heat Mr.
Hay ward, M.i.A., fnr Cowichan, and
Mr. Hanson, of Duncans, on co-opera
the <'kk marketing and collecting,
and buying ol feed as it is now
practised at Duncans, to the great
benefit of everyone concerned, Mr.
Foley, the poultry expert for Alberta
gave a very instructive address on
ncubating and brooding, tho kernel
of whieh was; have hardy, virile
parent stock, properlj fed and the
eggs wilt stand lots of hard usage
in the machine and give yuu good
stock, but no incubator mndo will
get results from pampered, idle, lint
house handled parents.
We had a demonstration in mouth-
sticking and dry plucking by ".ferry"
thc author of the entertaining and instructive ".lerrylets," which has
been such a feature page of the Canadian Poultry Review the last two or
three years.
Mr. Terry, to give him his right
and proper name, has been appointed
poultry expert for the province, and
I think wc are to be congratulated
na this fact, as he has been for some
years now Prof. Graham's right hand
man at Guclph, and there Is mighty
little iu the way of incubating,
brooding, crate fattening, dressing
aiyl shaping fowls and general practical work he has not bad a crack at,
and can pluck a bird in "a brace of
Shakes," and never stop pouring out
information during the operation.
Mr. Wilson, of Saskatchewan, gave
an address on the work of crate fattening as carried on by the Saskatchewan government in connection
with the creameries over there, with
figures showing the very marked increase m price received h\ the
farmers undei the present system, as
compared with the old one of individual half-hearted effort. Wo also
had a talk or two on the fancy side
of the poultrv business, but this did
not rivet my attention like the practical part of the question
On Saturday morning a meeting of
lhe directors of the provincial association was held in the Department
ol Agriculture, at which among others tho following arrangements were
The first annual Provincial Poultry
Show was slated to b( held in Van-
coiivei m January, 1912, and the
annual convention at the same
time The other winter shows of
the province were dated m circuit
ta come before the provincial Announcement of dates made later.
A list ol lodges tm the whole circuit ol shows was selected, subject to
latei arrangements.
a resolution was passed in retor-
me to a granl in aid of a demon-
tration station In poultry work (or
the province
\ resolution was passed expressing
the satisfaction of the directors at
the action of    the department in bc-
iiiinn Ml.   Tern's services.
\ lull ami complete report will be
publisbeil in "The Successful poultry-
man" this month
After thc directors' meeting I went
up to Duncans, to see old acquaintances and incidentally look into the
work of the creamery in egg-collecting and marketing and they have got
the work down to a nicety Every-
supplying eggs is given a stamp
with a number on it and every egg
must be stamped so that in case til
mtplaii.t the had egg can be traced
to the    person   who supplied it.   In
onscquenco of this the farmers are
very careful as to what they send in.
('ream is taken m at tjie creamery
three times a week and lhe eggs are
brought in at the same time, and
they have regular shipments to Victoria, Prince Rupert and part of
the year to the Yukon. A certain
price is paid on receipt of the eggs
and after deducting cost of handling
any surplus profit is returned to the seller at the end of the
year. They were paying fifty-five
cents at the time I was there. The
creamery management buy all the
feed for the patrons in carload lots
at Calgary or other shipping point,
have storage houses and turn it over
at actual cost of handling, thus saving a large amounl to the district.
The Petaluma system nf poultry
farming has been brought Into Cowichan nnd it is very Interesting tn go
along the road and see oue place sifter another with its long houses lull
of White Leghorns, most lots ian-
nlng from three hundred to el/lit
hundred birds and all bringing plenty
jf eggs to the creamery*

A Talk With Oui  Ud\  Readers.
Have you evei noticed how miserable and unhappy Ha- little pains ami
aches make one'.' A slinging cut,
badly chapped hands, a nasi) burn,
a sore foot, a poisoned Anger—none
of them wounds or ailment'; ever
likely to cause serious trouble, which
come to every woman—and man loo
—and are just sufficient ta take the
cdne off one's temper and give one
a "grouch."
Zani-liuk is just the l-hiiif! at such
times. As soon as you put n on lo
a sore, a cut, a burn, or am skin
injury, it .stops the pain, anil the
smart ini;, and starts up healing
Don't make ihe mistake ihat he
cause Xam-Ruk is so widelj used h)
medical men, by nurses, and [or set
lous skin diseases and accidents, that
it is only for serious case- Keep
it handy und use it immediutel) wm
get some trivial Injury or have some
little son-
Mrs CfaM It Barrett, llamionj
Road, Truro, \ S., says: "1 had an
Ingrowing toe nail, which caused mc
acute agony. Sometimes the pain
was so severe I could not sleep It
became so had thai I feared blond
poisoning had set in. I was advised
to try /.am-Huk and bound up the
sore toe wilh it lu a few days il
was much easier, and I con tinned
tlu> treatment, The resull Is that
today the toe is sound and I have no
more trouble with it We always
keep /am-Huk in our house, and 1
would strongly recommend it lu
every housewife."
/am-Huk is just lhe thing, too, fot
the little ones. Pure In iis emu
position, and herbal in nature, it Is
suitable for the mosl delicate skin.
It also cures piles, eczema, varicose
ulcers, cold sores, abscesses, blood
poisoning, ring-worm, and all similar skin diseases. Sold everywhere
at 50c. a box, or post free from
/am-Huk Co., Toronto, upon receipt
of price.

(Hy Fred Itoo.)
The Klko notes for several weeks
have been delayed on account of the
train .service.
Tbe bag men are coming around
again, and there's some awful specimens boys.
The North Star planing mill here is
getting ready to start up again. The
machinists, boiler makers, black
smiths, car repairers and tlue cleaners are jumping around like coon's
after fried chicken, getting things
in shape.
Several cabinet makers are fixing
up the interior ot the Merchants
Hank here.
Cndoubtedly the best dance ever
held in Klko was the Odd Fellows
ball January 27th, in the old opera
house, Hoffman house block, .Main
The decorations were very pretty
and the three links beautifully displayed throughout the hall.
Never in the history of the old
town did men and women work so
willingly together. Every (hid Fellow ami Kebekah was busier than a
skunk in a hen house. The bantpiet
room was fitted up with cosy corners and card tables and appropriate
decorations for the grand event.
The Fernie string hand was engaged to supply the music and they
gave splendid satisfaction, keeping
the most sociable crowd ever assembled in Klko delightfully entertained throughout the dance.
There were visitors from Cranbrook, Wardnei. Jaffray, Galloway,
Bavnes, Waldo. Hoosvllle. Fernie and
When "Clark." the he lilty of ten
thousand, etc., etc . from Michel ar
rived on the late local the dance became more fascinating than ever and
was one continual round of pleasure.
Kverybody knows.Clark Ile was as
lull of fun as a tiddler's flute and so
polite aud urbane that he would
make the lamented Mr Chesterfield
seem uncouth and coarse
At midnight the Kobekah's called
supper and the delicious refreshments
that were served made the C.P.R.
palace dining, cars look like rivp cent
lunch counters
It would be unfair to make special
mention of any lady pi gentleman,
as everyone Interested played their
part to perfection. Muring supper
several vaudeville acts were given,
and very much appreciated by everyone present.
We were asked to describe tbe
dresses. To do so, kind reader,
would mean putting the Knglish language on the brake beam Sever in
this old historic burg were so many
pretty dresses and pretty ladies seen
before, ami their merrj laughs would
make any memory i f grand opera
seem harsh and Jangling, And their
smiles lit up like a blaze of sunshine at a cloudy picnic It was
Odd Fellows' night and everyone of
them no doubt fell thai he was the
only original package of genuine Joy,
The at mOBpttcrc ' ha I permeated
