An Interesting and Handsomely Illustrated
Provincial Government Publication
The report ol Hie minister ol lands
lor Hie year ending December 31st
has come to hand. It is a very
handsome and instructive production,
quite the best and most comprehensive review ol this department's
work that the writer has read in the
past twenty years. The Illustrations throughout the report are excellent and the mass ol information
contained in its pages should convey
to the world at large, a very fair
insight into the great natural re-
rources of this province, in the shape
of arable lands and timber. There
is, of course, very little space devoted to South Rast Kootenay, both In
regard to the letter press and the II-
railway-fi will offer. Having kept
abreast of lhe requirements in the
way ol adequate surveys ol lands -set
aside for pre-emption entry, arrangements have been perfected lor
tlie securing of the necessary data as
to tho particular adaptability of the
several portions 0! the province to
the different lines of agricultural pursuits. By this means tbe department hopes to be able to inform the
intending settler, not only as to the
number ot acres and class ol land
within his holding, but to give valuable information as to thc class ol
farming his land is most suited (or.

compared with the great pains taken  ious year; the increase being slightly
to impress upon the readers the advantages of other districts, hy no
means so easy ol access, and with
nothing like the wide, rich resources
ol this lavored section, of tlie province.
Mr. Roht. A. Renwick, deputy minister of lands, opens the report with
his report to hia chief, the minister
of lands, Hon. W. R. Ross, in the
course ot which he says:

over 50 per cent. A considerable
number ol these records are lor lands
along tb? line ol the Grand Trunk
Pacific and Canadian Northern Pacific
ra.lways, but there has also been a
very marked increase in the settlement of lands on Vancouver Island,
especially in the lands administered!
through the Alberni agency.
One of the difficulties presenting itself to the settlement of lend are the
large areas.held under special timber
licences    and   leases.     To minimise,-
the several agencies throughout thc
province. At the first glance there
appears to be a shortage nl 51,000,-
000. This, however, does not indicate a fall in revenue to that extent, but is simply thc effect of the
transfer of the timber revenues for
the last six months from the lands
branch to the lorest branch.
Ol the rcvcnlc taken to account,
11,830,858.11 was credited tn land
sales. About rnMhird of this sum
represents the first payment of the
purchase-money in connection with
the highly successful sale nt government lots in the townslte of Prince
Rupert. At this sale 282 lots
brought, under tlie hammer, 11,192,-
475, us against the sale ol 1,446 lots
In 1900 lor I785.19I. In the 1912
sale the average price realized for
each lot sold was 11,328. as .gainst
an average price of J570 lor the 1909
sale. The 1912 sale at Prince Rupert stands out as the most sueeess-
lul s.le held by the lands department.
During the year the department at
Victoria consented In the sale of
517,231 acres ol crown lands. Of this
acreage 10,991 acres were surveyed,
and lhe difference represents the max-
iimiiii acreage railed lor in the applications for tinsurveyeil lands. The applications received lor the purchase
ol lands during the year total 331,-
899 acres. It would seem, there-
lore, that the Increase made in the
price ol lands has not checked their
sale to any mnrkfd extent, hut that
the reduction in the acreage sold will
lorest branch has lieen found of great
value. All ol such lands are examined as soon as convenient, and, if
found not to he the timber land or
land required lor reforestation, are
opened, lor pre-emption or rendered
available for purchase in small hord-
ings at public auction. Extensive examinations ol lands ol this nature;
were made throughout East Kootenay during the year, and arrangements have been perfected lor the
holding nl auction sales of the same
nt Irequent Intervals during the coming year.
The department lias token up the
closer supervision of prc-emptors and
pre-emptions with a view to securing
due performance, on the part ol tbe
pre-emptor,i of the requirements ol
the "Land Act" as to residence. On I

About <«eon last Tuesday a young
man shown as Albert Winn, was seen
bv the barieatter ol the North Star
hotel at Kfatiberley, to enter the
hotel office which was empty at the
time, awl after a moment's stay

When the Wnprteter, Harry Drew,
came in a lew minitm.later, the
bartender toM ten 0! what had happened, intimating that the visitor
might have stolen something. This
suggestion reminded Drew that he
had lelt his sale open. He immediately . rushed into the office and
made an examination, finding the
safe hnd been tampered with and
that 1550 dollars In cash, and cheques had heen stolen.
In a very short time Drew got 10-
gtther two or three men, with whom
he made tracks alter the thiol. His
footsteps tor some distance could be
easily followed in the snow. When
nearing, a little bridge, just between
Kimberley and tbe Sullivan'ore
shutcs, Winn fired,a shot at his pursuers, without effect, dropped oft the
bridge, and crawled underneath, completely hiding hlmscll. Tbe man hunters came to the bridge but could set.
no trace ol their man. However,
one ol the party thought he espied
part ol a man's leg at the tar end
of tbe bridge. Whereupon Drew-
said he would go home and return in
a lew minutes. Instead ol this, he
walked along the bridge, and at tbe
spot where he thought Winn was
hidden, Jumped oil and very quickly
bad the thief in his clutches, making
him disgorge Ms ill-gotten wealth.
It showed good grit on the part ol
Harry Drew to make that jump. The
thief obviously had a gun, and might
easily have plugged Drew. Anyway it
was a mighty lucky,jump lor Harry,
he got his -money and cheques and
turned the thief over, to the police.
Mr. E. A. Hill, ol this dty, acting
police magistrate, was sent for and
on Wednesday morning went .town to
Kimberley to give Winn bis prvllmin-
j ary hearing, with the result that thc|
'prisoner was committed lor ay trial
at the   next session   ot competent
I jurisdiction.

His home has been sold out and his

where he will take time to look
about him, although his heart is set
upon giving Cranbrook anotiier
chance to appreciate his woll meant
efforts to provide them with high-
class amusements.
Whilst little or no practical sympathy has been extended to Mr.
Oucrard, in tiis misfortune, it may
be safely, said that, the whole heedless community, will join with us in
wishing him better success elsewhere, where his. Tine talents as a
theatrical manager and his skill as,a
musician,   will be better appreciated.
The Messrs. Baldwin brothers propose lo close .-.ip the Auditorium for

The British investigator was also
quick to see tlie broad (application of
the Liberal doctrine of trusting the
people in thc Canadian Act whim he
pointed out In his report that "The
real value ol the measure lies in permitting both, parties and the public
lo obtain lull knowledge of the real
causes of dispute and in causing
suggestions to be made as impartially as possible on the basis of such
knowledge in dealing with existing
difficulties." It is considered probable that as a result ol Sir George
Askwith's visit and, report,, the Canadian Act will be adopted In England with such modifications as conditions may demand.
It is remarkable that the legislative legacies of the Liberal government should be affecting in so important a manner the legislation of
tlie mother country at a time when
the Borden government hero is giving
silch a proof of legislative incompetence. For their whole tenure of
office they can scarcely point to a
single piece of effective legislation
except such as they Inherited from
the Laurier government, as for example the West Indies trade agreement. Such new legislation as has
been presented has proven so defective that it has liud to be dropped,
us was thc case with the proposed
tariff commission or amended hy the
senate In a manner distasteful to the
partisan government ns happened to
the Highways' Aid Bill and the T. ,v
N. O. Railway Subsidy Bill, both of
which contained dangerous principles
which would have made them mere
Instruments for partisan manipulation.
This dearth of elective legislation
is the more notable since the government is not met with mere factious opposition. Wherever measures were presented by the government which promised to be good
their principle was accepted by the
Liberals and criticism was only directed to assuring) theinff roper ad-
minlstrabion. This was shown recently when thc opposition accepted
Hon. Mr. Burrcll's proposition to
grant 510(000,600 for. aid to, agriculture during the next ten years and
intimated that criticism would only
be directed to insuring tbe expenditure ot this large sum so as to do
equal justice to each province without tho possibility ol special favors
for districts where thc government
it want to secure undue influence. Thus Laurier's work still goes
on whllo Borden is apparently unable
to begin his.

While the present sess.on nf parliament has. proven singularly barren ol
any concrete legislation or indication that .Mr. Borden's government
has the necessary grasp ol affairs toi
secure fruitful work from parliament,
the results of the Laurier. government's work are still going on both
at home ami abroad. In no particular is this more, evident Ihan in the
labor legislation which wns built up
during flltren years of Liberal administration in Canada until It is today regarded as a model lor labor
legislation the world over.
This Is shown hy thc fact that
Great Britain recently sent over Sir
George Askjvitb tn study the Industrial Disputes Investigation Act,
commonly known as (lie Lemieux
Act. After 11 thorough investigation
Sir George has reported that the
beneficent manner In which this measure has worked lo lielter Ihe relations between capital and labor net

Strikes nnd lockouts met his unqualified approval. In Ills report Sir
George says, "Such 11 measure
the Lerrrieux Act, while not insuring
. complete absence ot strikes and
lockouts, would in my opinion give n
valuable    asset In the I'nited King
Rt. Hon. It. I. Borden Introduced
his naval resolution in.parliament,
December 5th, 1912.
It has been declared in the past,
and even during recent years, tbat
responsibility for foreign policy
could not be shared by Great Britain with the Dominions. In my
humble opinion, adherence to such a
position could have but one and
that a most disastrous result. During my recent visit to thc British
Isles, I ventured on many public occasions to propound that the Great
Dominions, sharing in Hie delence ol
thc empire upon the high seas must
necessarily he entitled to share also
in the responsibility lor and in the
control ol foreign policy. No declaration that I made was greeted more
heartily and enthusiastically than
this. It is satisfactory tn know-
that today not only his majesty's
ministers but also the leaders.pl the
opposite political parties In Great
Britain have explicitly accepted this
principle and have affirmed their conviction that the means by which it
can be constitutionally accomplished
must he sought, discovered and utilized without delay."
How bis majesty's ministers in the
Imperial government, have explicitly
refused this principle is shown hy the
following, official memorandum sent
by Rt. Hon. Lewis llarcoiin, secretary ol state lor the colonies, to the
Canadian government on Januarv 0th
"Mr. Asquith (prime minister) and
1 had subsequently several private
conversations with him (Mr. Borden)
at which he expressed the desire, that
the Canadian and other Dominion
ministers who might be in London as
ministers, who might be in London as
periat defence, should receive In, confidence, knowledge r,( the policy and
proceedings of the imperial government in foreign and other affairs. We
pointed nut to him that the committee ol Imperial defence is a purely
advisory body and is not nml caiinoL

The amount shown i„ thc liabilities
under the head of "Endowment
Fund" consists of the cost of poultry

them, together with tbe government

ithe same as a business firm losing its

Cranbrook, B.C., Feb. 17th, H1J.
To the Cranbrook Agricultural Association:
Gentlemen:   In presenting my     report as auditor lor the past fiaaarlal
I was aware tbat considerable
damage had been caused by a wind
storm, and made enquiries as to
whether any part cl these sums were
expended (or purposes other than actual working expense or repairs,
with a view to charging any legitimate and permanent improvements to
the Buildings Account, but was informed tbat such was not the case.
Since the completion of the balance
sheet, however, .Mr. Davis informs
me that part of the lumber awl labor
was utilized lor tin- purpose referred,
to, but there an- no reciprds tn show
the amount.
Should this be correct, I would
suggest that an easy manner nf adjusting it would be tn tin it at the
same time as the adjustment of the
Lethbridguj expense.
The item appearing In the Profit
end Loss Account under the liead of
General Expense, I have sub-divided
into, as many headings as practicable
and have handed the same to yaiiir

In accordano with these Instructions 1 prepared a "Cash Statement." Profit and Loss Account
and "Statement of Liabilities, and

general meeting of the association on
November 15th nf that yottr, at
which meeting it was adopted, I
suggested that, as the Profit and

The uprising of the Mountain Lumber Manufacturers, some boards of
trade, and ol a lew independent
newspapers, have obviously made, a
strong impression upon the McBride
government, lor we find as a result
ol said uprising that the minister ot
lands, Hon.. W. R. Ross, fcas introduced a new bill, entitled an act to
amend thc "Forest Act."
In which wc read thc following
amendments, which, moderately, and
subject to very early re-amendment,
affects tho claims of the Mountain
Lumbermen, at any rate for some
three years the royalty upon their
cut will be 50 cents per thousand
leet instead ol 51.00.
9. Subsections (ln), (lb), and (lc)
ol section 58 ol said chapter arc
hereby repealed, and the following
are substituted therefor:
"(a). Upon all timber suitable lor

each thousand feet, board measure,
one cord of bolts being taken as
equivalent to five thousand feet

"(c). Upon all timber suitable
tor railway ties, (ence posts or mining props, cut as aforesaid, a royalty

Thc forthcoming charity ball at
the Auditorium on Easter Monday,
March 24th, will mark the opening of
the social season following Lent and
promises in brilliancy to set a high
mark for tlie events which may follow. This ball will be given in aid
of St. Eugene hospital, and a vigorous, effort will bt made to net a gen-
craus contribution from this affair.
The executive force is in the hands
of a number of leading business men
of the cit>v who are working under
the direction of Mr. Harold Scott
and Mr. A. L. McDcrraot. The lady
patronnesses have been chosen and as
soon as they have signified their willingness to respond their names will
be made known.
Nil more worthy Institution
work, could present itself for this
purpose than that of .St. Eugene hospital. No one is ever refused admittance, no matter the condition of
their finances* or ability to pay. Men
and women come from all parts of
the district in time of sickness- to
seek the    shelter   of this     hospital,
They, are never turned away, and all
are given the best care the hospital
affords. Over $20,000 are on the
books of this institution, more than
is carried by* the largest of our mercantile houses in book accounts
Much of this money will never be
paid and for this reason the Sisters
find it difficult at man): times to
properly finance their institution.
Thoy are in. need of money at the
present time for improvements and
additions and it is hoped that the
charity ball will be .well attended and
generously patronized.
Albert Winn was brought into tlte
provincial,Jail here on Wednesday and
appeared this morning before His
Honor Judge Thompson, to elect for
trial. Doubtless impressed with
the kindly and charitable appearance
of Ms honor, the prisoner elected for
speedy trial.
Thc trial, proceeded, and there is no
use In.retelling the story here. The
outcome was that thc prisoner was
convicted and sentenced to twelve
months hard labor. He certainly
showed good intelligence In electing
for a speedy trial. The Herald is
informed that a gun was found on his,
person as well as some cartridges.
We were also informed,, and our readers can giv? it such cr?dcnce as they
please, that the idea that the prisoner was under the influence nf liquor
wihen he committed the crime of
robbing the North Star Hotel safe,
and of shooting at his pursuers, had
a good deal of influence in his honor's
flee for this dl.ff;iict in this city.
In re question ot the present boundaries of the Cranbrook land district,
Mr. Harold Darling produced a niup
recently, issued by the lands depaet-
meut, showing them.
The question of a Dominion experimental farm was next taken up. Secretary Ilalsall announced tbat be had
written the minister of agriculture,
Hon. Mr. Martin Burrell, Mr. R. F.
Green, the member for the district,
and had received no replies. Hon.
Price Ellison, provincial minister of
agriculture, informed Mr. Ilalsall
that he also bad written to thc
Dominion government on the same
Mr. T. H. 0'Comic.I asked for a
joint meeting nf the local associations interested in the securing of
building to be used by each of them
at their convenience. He had heard
that the provincial government
would contribute 75 per centpt thc
cost of a suitable building it the
Cranbrook people would find the
other 25 per cent.
Mrs. It. Brown, a delegate to Victoria, for the Poultry and Pet
Stock association, had, informed one
of the members that in discussing
this matter with Mr. Price Ellison,
he had definitely promised the terms
of assistance set forth above. A
committee of two, Mr. O'Conncll and
Geo. W. Leask, was appointed to go
thoroughly into the matter, interview representatives of other institutions concerned, figure out cost, etc.
On motion of Mr. Harold Darling,
seconded by E. H. McPhee, it
was decided to send as delegates tb

to ask for (1,000.

FOR 1013.
Turning now to the expenditure,
the first item is, of .course, the public debt, which is being amply provided lor. Tho civil service vote
has been increased'from $899,852 to
$1,412,060, or an increase ol (523,000
over tlie, estimates of last year. *The
largeness of,the increase is to a considerable measure accounted lor by
the [act that only the salaries ot the
lands branch were chargeable to the
lands department. Three other
brandies—surveyor-general's, forestry;
and water—were formerly paid out of
ii lump appropriation, but are now
included under, this head.
These alone make a difference ol
$230,000. The balance ol 1293,000 ol
increase is thc allowance made by
the government to the civil service
on account ol the higher cost ot living, and also includes thc statutory
Increase and tho .salaries ol the new
officials. Among the last named are
those of the government agency at
Vancouver, which was established
last year. Under the head ol administration ol justice, (salaries). the
vote $37,548 has been increased to
$58,158, the increase providing lor
thc prison farm at Okalla and the
increase ol, salaries.
Legislation has been increased Irom
$72,420 to $90,720. This is accounted tor largely by an increased
sessional indemnity ol members from
$1200 to $1600.
Public institutions (maintenance)
has been increased Irom $406,700 to
$496,020, due principally to tbe increased requirements ol the Mental
hospital at New Westminster snd
Essendale and the colony larm at the
latter place.
The voted sums for hospitals and
charities hare been increased Irom
$426,200 to $704,100. The principal
items ol increase under this head are
grants to hospitals, $50,000; to the
tuberculosis sanitarium, $45,
and assistance in building, hospitals,
$175,000. The demands lor incr.'js-
ed expenditure in this connection are
Ellison said: *'Our expenditure     for
thc ensuing year    will be the largest
on record—almost unthinkable ten
years ago, and wilt be much In excess ot the estimated revenue; but
wc are building lor the future, and
the government deems it wiser to
anticipate the requirements of rapid
development in the way ot public
improvements than to wait and impede progress ot settlement. Thousands aro coining now and many
thousands more will come each year,
spreading themselves over thc province to assist, in turning our natural
resources into wealth and making it
a great heritage.

—railway .building and road making,
the erection of a provincial university and improved inland facilities of
all kinds, and the making ot extensive surveys—will" to a large extent,

which cannot be anticipated as it
varies from year to year according
to thc requirements nl justice. Last
year the expenditure was largely increased owing to tho railway strikes
and thc pursuit ot two Indian murderers, who were captured.

It is estimated there are 6,225,000
acres of land held throughout the
provisos uuurvered, but special timber licenses account for the greater
bulk ot this acreage, the figures being
5,eoo,ooo acres. The balance is
made up ot 130,000 acres held under
land-purchase applications, 55,000
acres under pre-emption record, and
110,000 acres under coal and petroleum license.
The past year witnessed the organization ot the forest branch, and thc
commencement of a practical stocktaking of the forest areas of the
province. The ends sought by the
officers ot this branch arc not only the
protection of the lorest Irom fire,
but also the most economical handling In the cutting and milling of thc
timber. It may also be noted that a
start has been made in thc matter
ol the disposition ol Isolated stands
of timber. This Involves offering
the same lor sale at public auction,
subject to an upset price based upon
stumpage values; the purchaser's
title being in the lorm ot a special
timber license lor such term as may
be fixed, and subject to the usual
provisoes and conditions contained in
special timber licenses. This policy
will ensure the utilization ol isolate,!
timber, and also provide a new
source of revenue. Attention Is directed to the report of the chief forester attached hereto.
Thc reports of the several officers
ot the water branch indicate satisfactory progress throughout tho
year, aad a perusal ot them cannot
fail to impress the reader with thc
great Importance ol the water question in its relation to the development of the province, and tbe necessity tor conservation. In the
months of their earlier experience the
officers of the board had to combat
the idea tbat their efforts at conservation were rarimioa! to the interests of
the settlers, and that they contemplated an intrusion of vested Interests detrimental to such Interests,
and with no compensating advantage
to the public. This attitude, however, has been largely overcome. It is
generally conceded now that the leg-
I islation lor water conservation is in
I the main following prouer lines, and
that assured intelligent interpretation ol the provisions ot the'"Watcr
Act" by Its administrative officials
a marked advance can be counted upon lor the ensuing year.

be Included in that year's accounts.
This was agreed to, the final
statement prepaid accordingly and
submitted to the regular annual
meeting ol, the association in February last.
At the November meeting I suggested the advisability, ot opening up
a set ot books which would be a permanent record ot the altairs ot the
association, and a resolution was
passed to the effect that this be
i done, | on the basis of the balance
sheet then submitted and approved.
I In accordance ) with this resolution
II opened up the books and as before
stated, prepared a final balance, sheet
, alter the receipt of the city grant,
giving full details of receipts and expenditure for the entire,year.
| I must pay a tribute,to Mr. Davis
lor not only the, willingness, but anxiety he has shown to get a statement prepared which would be absol-
' (itely correct, and give all the details
possible of the operations aad financial position of tht association.
I would . suggest that tAn; association, consider thc advisability of appointing some person who understands bookkeeping, to do thc clerical
work of the oflice, so that tlie records would,be in a proper condition
to submit to tho auditor at ihe 'end
ol the year.
Tho secretary of nn association of
tiie size or Ibis holds a position uf
great responsibility, and is not only
responsible for the money bandied, hy
him, but to a very large extent, nl-
lor its financial success, and it is
rarely possible to have an office o|
this nature filled hy n person with
the necessary executive ability, who
is also a competent bookkeeper.
Thc suggestion made should, cost
little, the principle iwnrk being a
short time before aiid after the fair,
at which time tho Secretarial duties
pure and simple, arO also the most
pressing, anil n permanent bookkeeper
would have a better opportunity ol
keeping tlu. hooks correctly II in
touch with them the whole year, than
if employed only at a busy season,
and it would certainly reduce thc
cost, of auditing.
Should I have omitted any detail
which a member wishes further reasonable explanation of, I shall only
be too pleased to give whatever explanation Is possible, but I wish it
to be distinctly understood that I do
not pretend to have committed to
memory the hundreds of individual
Items ol which the year's business
consists, thc fullest possible details
of which are contained in "the books.
Yours truly,
G. H. Ashworth:
has been a brisk one. It 1ms witnessed the formation of two social
'1'lntef, trtrft'of Invertnrtc TunJ-tfiir' 61
Atiialiiu're. They have given several
functions, including popular suliscriu
tion dances for the latter ami _sleighing parties, danees anil skating party
for the former. The Windermere
District Hoard of Trade propose giving their first entertainment shortly
It will be in the form of a subscription dance. The invitations are
about to be sent ont. Tbe Invermere Hockey club scheduled a carnival but it had to be postponed on account of the uncertainty ol Ibe weather, a heavy thaw having recently
set in.
Work has been commenced on the
magnificent . new traffic bridge which
is being built by the provincial government to span the Columbia river
just at Athalniere. Tbis bridge Is a
further step on tlie perfecting of the
main traffic automobile road, which
passes through this part nnd connects with the International automobile highway.
The thermometer touched a temperature of fifty-four degrees one day
last week. Much of ■■ the snow in
this immediate vicinity lias gone for
this time and winter in its worst aspect is over. Windermere lalie is
oneet more a glare sheet of ice in
good condition for ice-boating or for
long distance skating.
Work on thc construction of the
Kootenay Central branch of the.CP.
R. is being proceeded with. Tho
construction of the dump has been
brought forward to fifty-four mile
post and steel has been laid to forty-
one mile post. Work on the southern extension in this direction is being pushed along.
London, Feb. 26.—Judging Irom the
statements made by Colonel Scely,
secretary lor war, in, a speech a I
Ikcston tbe other duy on compulsory
military training, the Asquith government docs not tear any grave emergency, or danger ol invasion.
In commenting on Lord Robert's
campaign in favor of compulsory miliary training, Colonel Scely declared
hat the government would not. .introduce any such system ol conscription until the country could be frankly told that some great danger was
menacing it.
"It is wrong," continued tdc colonel, "to gull the people Into taking
up a system which is alien to their
nature and lor which there is at present absolutely no need."
In concluding Colonel Scely statvil
that tbe government would shortly
announce a plan to be Introduced
which would mJke it easier lor wor-
tay men in the army ranks to rise
Irom the humblest to the highest position in the service.

Edmonton, Alta., Feb. 25—Henry
McAllister, a native of what is now
the province of Manitoba, born in St.
Andrew's parish on October 15, 1847,
who is declared to be the oldest
white settler north of the Peace river, has come to Edmonton lor supplies. This is his first visit to a
city.    Everything is new to him.
"Modern as   Edmonton is in      all
! things," he    said today, "I    would
us rather be back on   the homestead   in
the  Burnt   River   district,      where
I have passed tlie last 29 years. Mrs.
McAllister is a sister ol the Rt. Rev.
.1. C.    Brick, a missionary ol      thc
Anglican church.    1 have learned   to
love the wilderness as a mother does
ber first-born.     I have lived    there
belong there."
Mr. McAllister left Winnipeg, tben
Fort Gurry, in ,1870, on.an expedition
to the north country In tbe employ of
tbt Hudson's Bay company. He contracted blood poisoning In the hand
at Carlton, now Prince Albert, Sask.
and hovered between life.and death
tor three months. Finally, his condition became so serious that his
companions left him to die. Accompanied by an Indian guide he reached
Fort Cltipewyau lute in tbe summer
of 1H71. lie was re-engaged by the
Hudson's Buy company and served as
•instable at ibe lort.
Afterward he was transferred to
the Peace River country and remained twenty years. There he made the
acquaintance of the missionary, whose
sister is the pioneer's wife. Mr. McAllister has visited every settlement
north of the 55th parallel. He speaks
the Crce and other tribal tongues
with the fluency of 4 native. He predicts important development work for
the north country.
During the.past year the live
stock branch ol the department of
agriculture bus been engaged in a
preliminary investigation ol the Canadian egg trade. Certain, facts relating lo thc enormous loss that is
charged back against thc farmer and
the ; unsatisfactory status of, the
trade as a whole have been catleeted
and presented in bulletin No. 10, entitled "The Care ol Market Eggs."
Realizing, howeber, the necessity of
recuring more detailed information
belore Inaugurating any policy having
for its ohjevl the bringing about ol
improvement in the condition of the
business, the minister of agriculture
has authorized the appointment of .1.
II. Hare, U.S.A., ot Whitby, to undertake the necessary investigation.
Mr. Hare,has held the position ol
district representative in, Ontario
County, Out., for tlie past four years.
He was horn at Cobourg, tint., and
received his early training on the
farm. He entered the Ontario Agriculture College in 1001 and graduated in 1008. Since taking up the district representative work in Ontario
County he has devoted much time
and has been very successful in the
organization of co-operative egg
circles. Not only has he paid particular attention to conditions of the
egg trade as they exist in the rural
districts, but he has also made a
close study of thc poultry business In
general and has written numerous
articles, among which,is a bulletin
now In press. By virtue of his'
technical training and his practical
experience Mr. Hare is, therefore,
well qualified as a specialist in poultry work.
Mr. Hare will first be concerned
with the collection ol all tdata that
is available on the grading of eggs
as they have been received at wholesale produce houses of Canada during
the past two'years. The inlorma--
tion thus obtained will be used to'
form j basis for such action as may
be taken hy the government in Inflating a movement to improve and
properly regulate Ihe trade.
Mr. Hare will be located at Ottawa, but will travel extensively
throughout the Dominion, lirst in the
east and later In the west.

A sua was killed   mm Moyie   en
sores from elbow to ping-
zam-buk worked a miracle
of healing.
Reverend Gentleman Fully Corroborates.
Miss Kate L. Dolliver, ol Caledonia, Queen's County, N.S., says:
"I must add my testimony to the
value ol Zam-Buk. Ulcers and sores
broke out on my arm, and although!
I tried to heal them by using various
preparations, nothing seemed to do
me any good. The sores spread until from fingers to elbow was one
mass ol ulceration.
! "I have five different doctors, and
faithfully carried out their instructions. I drank pint alter pint ol
| blood medicines, tried salve alter
salve, and lotion after lotion; hut It
| was ol no avail.
"My lather then rook me thirty
miles to see a well-known doctor. He
photographed the arm and hand. This]
photograph was sent to a New York
j hospital to the specialist; but they
sent word they could do nothing lur-
ther lor tne, and I was in despair.
"One day a Irlend asked me il I had
tried Zam-Buk. I said I bad not,
bul I got a box right away. Tbat
first box did me more good than all
the medicine I had tried up to that
time, so I continued the treatment.
Every box healed the sores more and
more until, to make a long story
short, Zam-Buk healed all the sores
completely. Everybody in this place
knows of my case, and that it is
Zani-lJiik alone which cured me."
Minister corroborates.—The Rev. W.
B. M. Parker, of Caledonia, Miss
Dolliver's minister, writes: "This is
to certify thut tho testimonial ot
Miss Dolliver is correct as far as my
knowledge goes. I have known ber
lor a year anil u half, and her cure
effected by Zam-Buk is remarkable."
Wherever there Is ulceration, blood-
poison, sores, cold-cracks, abscesses,
cuts, burns, bruises, or any skin in-
Jury or disease, there Zam-Buk
should bo applied. It is also a sure
cure lor piles. All druggists ami
stores sell at 50c. per box, or post
tree from Zam-Buh Co., Toronto, for
price. Refuse cheap anil harmful Imitations and substitutes.

On Tuesday nl this week the city
license commissioners met at tin-
city hall for the transaction ol business. > Among those in attendance
were Mayor Bowness, Alderman
Clapp and Mr. Jas. Caslakc.
The first application dealt with
was that of W. A. Rollins, recently
proprietor ol thc Royal hotel, for a
transfer of his license to the new
proprietor, Mr. W. Steward. Granted.
The next application was made by
Mr, R. A. Fraser, in respect to the
premises on lot 6, block 93, Baker
street (Worden's building) for which
lie wanted a wholesale license.
Mr. A. B. Macdonald appeared lor
the applicant, whilst Revs. Kendall,
Thomson and Dunham opposed the
granting ol the license. The arguments advanced by the opposition
were that ia view ol certain sections
ol the city ol Cranbrook License bylaw, which declare that only two
wholesale |licenses shall be granted,
and on the ground that the requirements ol tbe town were adequately
supplied by the present wholesale licenses.
A somewhat lengthy discussion ensued upon the interpretation ot the
bylaw, etc.,.and settlement ol the
case was adjourned until the next
regular meeting, March 26th.

tban these representations of tbe
empire's power and wealth in the
great Indian dependency.
Tlie Kinemacolor pictures proved
not to be a mere representation:
They were the thing itself, or as
near actuality as anything can be.
The pageant lends itsell admirably
to color illustration. An Indian

statement since they contradict each
other on the essential point ot a
voice in the control ol Imperial foreign policy lor Canada. It should
not be difficult to locate thc* inaccuracy.
Premier Borden in his naval speech
in parliament on December 6th,
19)2, discussing his proposi-d contribution said: "Canada is sending
these ships to range themselves in
the battle line ol the empire witli
those of the mother land, Australia
aad New Zealand."
Thi Is pretty as rhetoric and lo
appearances, but not in accord with
the lacts. The Australian Act
places the control ot the
Australian ships under thc control ol thc Australian
government. Mr. Ilordon's proposal*
plaee . the Canadian ships wholly
beyond the control of the Canadian
parliament Moreover Australia
some years ago abandoned the emergency contribution idea, "Thc admiralty agreeing that it might bo wiser J
tor pher to concentrate upon the per- '
nunent task which was then allotted
to her in the joint programme tor the
Pacific." As a result Australia tins
one battle cruiser finished, two more
nearly ready and a number ol smaller
etait being built in British and Australian shipyards, and they will nil
be used lo patrol and guard Austral-
tan waters, in line with Mr. Chur- ;
chill's plans.
Mr.   Churchill   in a    recent speech I
also said    tbat   Great   Britain still '
could    by special arrangements send
out » strong fleet ol battleships  ami
crullers    to the    Pacific,   to  unite

British   China squadron lor the    do- |

and New Zealand.

Sir Wilfrid Laurier and his cabinet
were sworn in on .luly 11th, 181)6. A
brief session ol parliament was held
irom August loth to October 5th.
Then the cabinet settled down to the
promised revision ol the tariff. They
were ready again and called parliament on March 25th, 18117. A month
later the famous Fielding tariff with
its beneficent readjustment ol duties
and the inauguration of tlie imperial
preference, which aroused the enthusiasm of the empire, was brought into
effect, and on .lunc 3rd; Sir Wilfrid
left lor England, where tit the Queens
Jubilee and the imperial conference
he woo still greater lame for Canada. This was all within the lirst
year of Liberal administration.

seem to have benefited Canada.
Evidently inspired efforts have been
mode by the Conservative press to
make it appear that thc seven Nationalists who voted against the Horden naval resolution on Thursday
night were supporting thc Liberal
party, ami absolutely misleading reports seeking lo convey this cltect
were sent out. The exact opposite
ils the truth. When at tbe conclusion ol Ibe long debate the lirst division was called on Mr. Vervillc's
sub-amendment calling for an appeal
to the people this was accepted by Sir
Wilfrid l-aiirier and supported by the
Lilieral party. It was as staunchly
opposed by the government side and
their Nationalist allies, each ot tlie

laughter Irom the Liberal benches as

Sheltered to the north and cast by

Going northward, Irom the Crows
Nest branch of the Canadian Pacific
railway, the Columbia Valley is entered at Canal Flats, where the
Kootenay Valley merges Into the
Columbia. Thc scenic beauty and
fertility ol    this
baffle description. Dominated on the
cost by thc Rocky and west by the
Selkirk mountgins, the diversity and
grandeur ol scene Irom every point ol
view is fairly bewildering. The only
present means nl transportation is by
stage from Cranbrook and Fort
Steele to Wilmer and Windermere,
ami by sleamer from Windermere and
Golden, on the Canadian Pacific railway main line, or vice versa, but a
railway will shortly traverse tho
valley Irom north to south. The advent of such a road would be followed by an inrush ol settlers and the
development ol the minerals and
timber, for the country is well endowed in both respects. Quite a lew
settlers have taken up land in the
valley, and, despite tlie lack ol quick
communication! with the outside
world, they arc all doing well.
Grains, vegetables, and Irults flourish, and cattle and sheep thrive on
the nutritious bunch grass which'
covers the benches and hillsides. Thc
snowfall is sn light that the live
stock winter out, and winter (ceding
is the exception.
The lands in the Kootenay and Columbia valleys Irom Golden, south
to Tobacco Plains, on the border ol
thc United States, are mostly in the
hands ol private owners and the Canadian Pacific Railway company. Mr.
I. F. Armstrong, government agent
at Cranbrook. reports to the depart-'
ment of lands: "There Is now no land
in tbis district open lor pre-emption
which is fit lor agriculture."
The Upper Columbia valley, lorm-
ing the northern portion ol Kootenay,
varies in width Irom one to twelve
miles,, being bounded on thc east by
the Rocky anil nn the west hy the-
Selkirk Mountains. Much ot the
land is low and swampy, but when
reclaimed by dyking Is very fertile.
Most ol this low land is at present-
only valuable for tlie wild bay whieh
it produces In abundance. There, il
also considerable land lightly timbered and easily cleared, which, il
brought under cultivation and irrigated, would produce splendid crops
ol all kinds, including small Irults,
apples, pears, plums, etc. Tbe
foot-hills are spaqrscly limbered and
foothills are sparsely timbered and
eminent land available tor pre-emption throughout the 'Kootenays is
limited In extent and II largely confined to bench lands which cannot be
Irrigated. The Canadian Pacifia
railway has some good land, which
may be bought at reasonable prices.
Many large holdings and improved
farms are also on thc market, at
prices ranging Irom (10 to (50 per
The hot torn lands nic a rich black
alluvial ami very fertile, the tenches
being a gravelly loam, well adapted
to fruit growing. At thc southern
end nl Kootenay Lake There Is a
tract ol 47,060 acres ol meadow land
which has been partially reclaimed,
and is very productive. Wherever
Irult trees have been planted In tbis
district they have given great satisfaction, and Irult growing on a commercial basis is now well established
In thc Kootenay lake section. The
shores ol Kootenay lake arc proved
to be well suited to Irult growing,
and many orchards have been planted.
On the West Arm, near Nelson, this
is especially noticeable, the number
ol plantations indicating that in time'
the whole available lake Iront will
be one immense orchard. Peaches oi
large size and exquisite flavor are
grown in the Nelson district.
Thc country bordering and south
ol thc Arrow Lakes Includes some
large areas of goad land, which will'
all be settled upon and cultivated'hc-
lore many years. Summer Irosts
may nip the trnderest shoots on thc
lands In thc creek bottoms,'but
wherever tbe land is ten leet or more
above the  water level there ia     no
danger    ol    damage. Professor
Thomas A, Sharpe, who made a trip
ol observation through Southern
British Columbia in the summer of
1905, says of this part ol Kootenay:
"III owned land anywhere along this
section I would have no hesitation in
planting an orchard."
Potatoes yield 300 to 406 bushels
to the acre, and other roots give
equally heavy returns. Garden vegetables grow to perfection, and even
tne more delicate varieties are seldom Injured by frosts ot drought.
Although .the acreage and aggregate
yield ol vegetables, grain and root
crops arc Increasing yearly, ' tho
quantity produced is (ar Irom satis-
ingnlflcent veileH'y'llS tne loca' oernand. Mining,
lumbering, and railway construction
employ laigc numbers of men whose
wants the farmers cannot supply, so
that very much which the country
'can produce has to be imported.
In the Columbia Valley and throughout thc Kootenay districts the high
altitude rarities the air and makes it
bracing. The* rainfall averages trom
18 to 20 inches per annum, thc lesser
precipitations being io East Kootenay, and the snowtdll varies from 1
to 3 leet. The winters extend Irom
December to March, snow not falling
to lie, as a rule, earlier, than tho end
of December. Navigation on the
Upper Columbia closes early in November and on Arrow Lakes and
Lower Columbia about the end of
that month. The Kootenay Lakes
do not freeze over. During the winter the mercury occasionally drops
below Hero, but these cold "snaps"
ats of short duration, and, owing to
tlie dryness ol the air, the cold is
not severely lelt. The highest summer temperatures varies Irom 80 to
90 degrees in the shade, with compensating!)' cool nights. .
