Game in Cranbrook District
Chat With Game Warden Bates
Nothing in the world perhaps is so
impressive an a great forest. The
intense silence of lis depths, Its mysterious beauty, uml, above nil, the
Incalculable riches thul it represents.
appeal us much to the Imagination
ns to the eye. Il Is long, however,
since we in the mothor country hud

axe ul the woodcutter has heen at
work fm nearly twenty centuries,
und very little, comparatively speak -
tlig, has been done as yet. iu the way
of preservation and rc-attoreatatlon,
Those who wish to see, then, how
vast, rich, ami beautiful a forest may
be, must visit Canada, for the Dominion is a laml of forests, just as It
is a land of fertile plans and teeming rivers ami lakes. It might also
he ealled the land of forests, lor il
is estimated thai its nominal woodland area totals some hum mill ton
acres, with alt'actual available area
of merchantable timber of 2nti million acres. These figures, however,
are so enormous, that it is dlfllcult
to grasp ihem, until one compares
them with Hie tola) ana
of the Hritish Isles—some seventy
seven million acres.
All the states of the Dominion
have more or less valuable forest
properties, but Hritish Columbia,
with a total forest area of 182,750,-
000 acres, may ho said to have tho
greatest compact area ol merehanl*-
abla timber in North America. It is
also claimed for the western province
that the coast climate can produce
as much timber In forty years as can
he grown elsewhere on the continent
in ii century. Quebec bas some
.'127,700 square miles of forest land,
Ontario 100,000 square miles. The
extent of the timber limits of Ses
katchewan are not accurately known,
but the country iinrth and east o
Prince Albert is heavily timbered
The forests of the northern tcrritor
tear-through    which  the  great   fores-
belt passes—are, oi course-, famous,
but their area and the commercial
value can only as yel be estimate
very roughly.
Up to the present, comparative'
speaking, little Inroad has been made
ou the forest wealth id the country,
which consists chiefly of spruce ami
pine, although there ure large supplies of many other woods, including
the maple (hard ami soft) elm,
hickory, I roil Wood, cedar, hemlock
walnut, oak, butternut, bnsswoud,
poplar, chestnut, rowan, willow, and
lilack and white birch, From thc
above it must not, however, he understood that Canadians do not ie
cognize the enormous value uf their
forest resources; on the contrary
Ihey fully realize it, for on every
hand sawmills and pulp and paper
mills are springing up and furnishing
employment to nn army of employe'
that increase in numbers every
mouth. It takes, however, many an
axe ami many a year to make an appreciable impression on a forest area
of 100(1 million acres.
There is not the slighest doubt
that Canadians do recognize the extent and value of this—one of their
greatest natural assets. The forest
products of the Dominion find their
way to every part of the globe—the
home country and the I'nited States
in    particular.
One of the most interesting points
to he noticed about these figures is
the hig increase in exports to the
I'nited States, where thc rapid depict Um of the spruce, hemlock, nnd
poplar supplies have created a good
market (or Canadian pulpwood. The
I'nited States is, however, not Canada's .sole customer In this line,
since a goodly portion of her exports to the home country consists
of pulp-wood. Of a total of 427,515
tons of wet mechanical pulpwood imported into Oreat Rrltaln during
1000, no less than 107,213 tons came
from the Dominion—an increase ol
more than 20,000 tons over her total
(or CMtft.    (Continued on page eight)
The meeting ol the city council
last ovening was more than usually
Interesting, In that it was the lasl
regular meeting of tho present coun
cil and Mayor Fink took occasion,
before adjournment, to make a low
valedictory remarks, responded to bj
one of ihe aspirants in the mayoralty chair, Alderman DeVere Hunt
Another feature of special interest
was the dismissal of City Bngincei
II V Parker, and the reinstatement
in the olliee of superintendent nl the
water works, of R   Baldwin
Those present at the meeting were
Mayor Kink and Aldermen Hunt,
Pat more, Jackson, Johnson and
Green.
After the reading ol the minutes,
City Kngineer Parker asked to he allowed to bring up a requesl made by
him hy Oeo. Hnggnrth, of the Cranbrook hotel, for leave to dig a
trench connecting the hotel drainage
with the ('.P.P. septic lank. This
matter was left with the cily engineer and city solicitor to draw up
the necessary contract.
Fire Chief Wand's report fnr the
months of November and December
was presented. It showed three
calls during the two months; to the
Imperial hotel, where the loss was
placed at $500, io the K. T I. company's offices, amount of loss nol
mentioned and to -i t building of
W, it. Beatty's on French avdnue,
loss in this case, also, was not spec!
fted, the cause of the fire being attributed to incendiarism.
Aid. Hunt ai this point raised the
question of the dismissal of Baldwin
by thc city engineer and the con**e-
qtient resignation of ihe athel employees on the water works
On motion this mailer was ileieirl
for subsequent consideration
The next matter dealt with was .in
application of the King Lumber com
pany ior a reduction in their whit
rate. After considerable discussion
of the whole question of water rati--.,
which are to he rev, ;ed at an early
date, it was deeldi to notify the
companj that there * ■'* i rate would

FRUIT MARKET CONDITION
Report of Commissioner Metcalfe shows
t'aily satisfactory state of affairs
Tho second annual report ol the
provincial markets and trunsporta- '
Hon commissioner, Mr. J, V. Metcalfe, lias just been made public—In
advance of its presentation to the
legislature—In order that it may the
sooner accomplish its practical purpose, "the benefit and instruction ol
the fruit growers." Mr. Metcalfe
was this season for five months in
the prairie provinces, studying market conditions, and rendered therefrom weekly reports which were Immediately sent out to the secretaries
of the boards ol trade and thc Farmers' Institutes, and were also published generally by the press of the
province. liis annual report In its
entirety reads:
The Hon, Price Ellison, Minister ol
Finance and Agriculture, Vlctoi
ia, B. C.
Sir: Following the decision ol the
meeting of the Hoard of Horticulture
held in Victoria, I continued my In-
estigutions into the conditions of
lhe fruil trade in the three prairie
provinces, Leaving Hammond on
the lltli May, 1 went direct to Victoria and conferred with the deputy
minister, aud then left at once for
lhe prairies, where I have spent tbe
entire summer in investigation work
nml have now to report as follows:
With the exception of .Nelson, I
re-visited all the towns covered lust
year, and in addition visited numbers of smaller points, where our
fruits an* being introduced. Visits
e made at dillereut dates iu order
to keep iu touch with the condition
of the various fruits as Ihey arrived
iu season.
The market has extended even more
rapidly than was anticipated from
lhe conditions known to exist last
vent, uml although our crop was
more than treble that ot last year
ihere lias not been the slightest difficulty in disposing of it at prices
profitable to the growers. Had our
crop been double what it was, it
could still have been disposed of.
The fruit crop of eastern Panada was
very short this season, and this eliminated competition from tbis source
almost entirely outside of Winnipeg.
Apples and grapes from Ontario are
'liming freely ul the date of tbis ie
porl, but tbe supply cannot be kept
up as stoeks in eastern Canada are
already seriously depleted.
The opinion oif jobbers this season
has been expressed mainly by deeds,
as they have been extensive buyers of
llritisb Columbia fruits of all kinds
Indeed, where last year they were almost wholly Indifferent, ibis year
they were keen to get uur fruil, and
lo pay the highest market prices,
Retailers concurred in the opinion ol
the jobbers as to the IfUality of our
fruit.
Tbe question of whether our small
fruits shall be handled through the
tnbbers or through the retailers is
nm- that will have to he dealt with
immediately. Small fruits will have
to he handled through oue or the other exclusively, as otherwise our fruit
would come in competition with it
self, If handled through jobbers, the
lubbers would of necessity have to
furnish the machinery for distribution, and thus avoid all possibility
of auy market becoming glutted. If
supplied on order to the retailers
it will he necessary for the fruit
organizations of Hritish Columbia tr
■end out their own travelers aud
solicit the orders.
Hritish Columbia cherries did bet
let this year than last owing t<
the unusual dryness of the season,
hut plums did not hold up well from
ihe Lower Mainland when shipped by
freight. All our large fruits grown
in the different sections ol the Upper part of thc province, apples,
oears and crabapples from the
Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island are all very acceptable to the
fruit trade of thi' different provinces
hut particularly in the province ol
Alberta, where, up to the present
time, the greater part of our output
has heen marketed. So marked i
this preference that they will pay
more for our fruit than for either
American or Ontario fruit. Tn this
howevtr, there are exceptions—name
ly, tin- plums, prunes, peaches nml
■berries from tbe Lower Mainland
ill plums, prunes and peaches from
Vancouver Island and thr Islands
tlie planting of these fruits should
diseournged by the department ii
future, nnd the planting of small
units encouraged; also such law
[lilts as apples, crabapples and
pears, for whieli these districts :»re
well adapted. The reason for this
t obvious, Our climatic conditions
n the Lower Mainland and Islands,
through the humidity o! the atmosphere, favor the growth of fungus Ul
mm, and more particularly what
called "brown rot," in plums,
prunes, peaches aud cherries; thus
renders them unfit for long transport
atioii, as they altogether lack the
holdiiig-up qualities so essential ir
successful fruit-shipping, especially
where we bave to come in compel i
lion with fruits from the upper part
nf the province nnd from the Ameri
an side. I found the prejudice genital on the part ot jobbers, retail
ers and consumers against fruits
from these particular districts. The
varieties most appreciated are:
Apples-Yellow Transparent ami
Duchess for early, (iravenstein am'
Wealthy    for   loll; King,   Mcintosh
Hed, Northern Spy and Jonathan foi
winter.
Pears—Bart letts, Hour re Cluirgenu
and Bourro D'Anjou.
Cherries—Almost any variety of
good size that will ship aud arrive
iu good condition, and the same applies to the illHerotit varieties of
small fruits.
Peaches—Tin- best varieties are
Freestones (yellow flesh) ElbortUS
and Crawfords,
With respect to holdings already
planted with prunes, plums and
peaches on Vancouver Island, and
plums, prunes, peaches and cherries
on tho Lower Mainland, the only solution is tlu- local markel nnd the
cannery.
All thai un; snld lasl year as lithe need of ineieiislng supplies may
be said wilh eqiml truth this year.
The proof of ibis is that much nf
the success oi the season just closing was due to nur being able to
supply fruits of one variety iu larger
quantities than was possible ... last
year. Fewer varieties anil larger
quantities nf those grown must he
the motto of Hritish Columbia Iruit
growers for many years to come, til
ways bearing in mimt the varieties
suited to the different districts and
lhe markets tu he supplied.
Competition from the American
side and Ontario will be just ns
keen as ever, but the past season
has given British Columbia a grip on
the trade which she did not have he
fore, as the persistent advertising of
our fruit is beginning to bring re
suits, .iml whenever our fruil wa:
given a fair trial it made good. The
largeness of our crop this season wa.*
a factor also in making jobbers mop
willing to trade with us than formerly.
While, as staled in tho report las
year, the fruit-houses of the praili*
provinces are largely controlled h*
American capital, the claim tthlc"
ihey made last year, that they we1
iter to buy tin- In-st fruit in thr
cheapest markel, has been made good
in a measure, as many of them have
this season bought more than thr
independent houses.
The list of these remains much
the same as last year, the auction
mart iu Winnipeg is still carried nn.
These hntises claim a shortage of
supply of standard varieties on the
part of British Columbia grower:.,
anil that they are prepared to buy
larger quantities as ve produce
them, and meet the American competition in   tin- matter of prices.
• lobbers state, with reference tn
our prices, that while they are willing to pay more for nur fruit than
Ihey pay fnr American fruit, they
are nnt willing to pay the extreme
df(Terence asked by Hritish Columbia
growers. Prices, on the whole,
have been v-*r*ll maintained for all
fruits, with the possible exception
of peaches near the close nf the season. Prices nu this fruit dropped to
a point where the profit to the grower was very narrow utter all expenses
were paid. This difficulty might in
future be overcome by more careful
attention to distribution.
In regard to the handling of mir
fruits, one of the ttiroc methods
outlined in my final report last year
is necessary, and I am of tbe opinion that the marketing through the
present jobbing houses will he of the
most satisfactory tn our growers
and shippers nt (he present time ul
least. Either of the other methods
would entail very great expense in
getting under way, because if not
handled through present jnbbinc
hntises these houses would come in
active competition with our own, and
price-cutting will be the natural result. The present jobbing houses
now realize the great possibilities o'
fruit growing in British Columbia,
and have already to some extent fui
filled their promise of last year *>i
coming in and huying nur fruit in
quantities and paying cash for it,
nud this method nl buying will unquestionably be extended hy ihem
next year.
I have to report a very market'
improvement in the packing and loading uf cars Many of the jobbers
have complimented the British Columbia people un this point particularly, and through the past season
there bus been no luss on this score
Nothing is so well done, however,
that it cannot be done better, and
for that reason, and also for tin
benefit of new growers who have no
previously done nny packing, tb
directions nf last year are repeated
1. Place most perishable fruit-
pears, fnr example— nearest the lcc*
hunkers.
2. Leave plenty of ventilation
along bottom ol ear and between the
rnws nf crates,
.'I. Leave abundant space for brae
ing at center of car, and see that al
braces are strongly secured tu pre
vent slewing of crates when cars are
shunted.
I. Never lilt a ear more than two
thirds full, us the natural heat gen
crated by fruits rises.
In addition tu the above, it is very
desirable to have the fruit as cnol
us possible heforc it is packed. Fur
example, fruit picked one day shouir
not be packed until the next, and
should be Kept in well-ventilated
houses, where thc cool night nir will
have free access to it.
There Is a very general outcry on
the part nf jobbers uud retailers that
express rates are too high, while on
the other hand the Express compan1
claims persistently that it is carrying Hritish Columbia unit at a loss. I

rin- Lower Mainland growers, especially, are clamoring for a lower rate
in ton and half-ton bits to cnablr
thi'iu to sliip their plums uud prunes by express. Tlie express service
Has been lovatly improved during i In-
last year at all distributing nnd
transfer points, anil any [allures in
thc handling of our fruits have usual-
y been traced tn new hands, the
regular staff, apparently, endeavoring
to Improve the service Tho point
Itade last year as lu uneven platforms has not lieen disregarded. New
platforms have been laid at some ef
tbe transfer points, and farther improvement* ni the same kind :i*v
promised (or the near future. \-.
regards freight rates, some of lhe ir
regularities have been adjustrd, and
there is hope lor others being al
tended to, Speaking generally,
freight  rail's are fairly satisfactory
Last year, iu summing up my report, I-laid emphasis un a few
points, nud all that was said then
ean be said this year with Increased
earnestness. There is une puint.
however, wbieb I wish to enlarge
upon, and thai Is co-operation. It
is only hy gathering our fruit growers Into organisations, either large
or small, that we ean hope to Increase the supply of fruit, both large
and smalt; to Improve the quality ut
the fruit by stirring up interest in
more thorough cultivation and other
methods, such as spraying, pruning,
thinning, etc.; growing tbe varieties
of fruit wanted by prairie markets,
and in better packing ami more fault! shipping.
Further, it is only by co-operation
that the fruit growers can control
the sale uf their fruit and tbe uni
fortuity of the pack. By co-opern
tion it will lie possible to slop In
eurloads a uniform quality packed in
a uniform manner. Too much stress
cannot be laid on these things
Along this line nothing would I
more valuable to the ft nil growers
than the establishment of govern
ment schools or depots in the fruil
growing districts, where proper
methods of packing would be tauglll
at a small cost to the individual. It-
co-operation also it would be possible to lessen cost of production in
securing a supply of labor, the coot packages, spraying, material and
implements used in orchard work; in
fact, a dozen ways.
The season just passed has marked
progress along many lines for the
Hrilish Columbia (rult growers, and
the success of the future is largely
in their own hands. With n corresponding improvement in each coming
year the prophecy of Karl (irey will
be fulfilled, thai our province will
find thnt she has a greater oxicl Ir
her orchards than in lu-r mines

CONTROL OF RAILWAYS
.Uil.l.l.MKvr     KKACHKl)       BETWEEN CANADA  \M' THE
UNITED STATES
As a resull nl a long conference
between -ludgc Martin A Knapp,
chairman of the Interstate Commerce
commission, and the lion. J. r. Ma-
bee, chief of the railway commission
of Canada, an agreement has been
reached between the governments id
the I nited States and Canada respecting the creation of an international rallwaj commission, which
shall have supervisor) aul horltj
ivot the rallwaj rates In operation
between the countries
Mr, Mabec aimed In Washington
from   Ottawa last   week   to discuss
the details nf alt aciei'llielit     he    had
reached with Judge Knapp last August i.a-t Friday Ihe two officials
who were designated lo theli rcipce-
tlve governments to make a reporl
upon the subject wen- in conference
The report has been completed and
filed by Judge Krapp with thc atotc
department, and by Mr Mabee with
the foreign office of Canada
No details of thc reporl are yel
available beyoad the fnet thai ii
recommends tbe establishment ol nn
international commission, upon which
shall be conferred certain defined regulator) power* Win-tin t Hie commission is to he created hy treaty
or Joint legislation cannot lie announced at this lime.
Km a considerable period It has
been reali/ed thai the Incoming traf
lie, both passenger and freight, between the I'nited States and Canada, was likely tu render the control over rales iti the future difficult
miles-; some international action were
taken    The acquisition b) American
lailways ot Canadian terminals aid
hy Canadian railways of American
terminals and lines present Incrca*
ing difficulties
In the existing circumstances neither an .\meriean nor a Canadian cat
rier may be required to furnish to .1
shipper a through hill of lading from
any point in one country to lhe other.
The reasonableness of International
rates, which ordinarily are a eon
blnatlon ol rates local to each country, can be determined only h\ a
circuitous proceeding Instituted (.<
fori- the cn mini ssjons of both coun
tries.
No power at present exist*, that
can require carriers engaged in int« r
national transportation to cstabli*di
what may he called officially a reasonable through rate "nt ol M.i
situation grew the idea of ilu- in*
national commission, which ihould
have supervisory control over the

It was the desire of ludgc Knapp

himself should he completed and nab

In the course of his admirable re
view of the provincial mining Indus

to the N'elson News, Mr. K .Jacobs,
than whom there is no more rcliahh
writer on mining matters in Western
Canada, says:
"A careful estlmnte of thc value ol

thai it was larger than in any piev

made, loo, under conditions, somi

important mines However, then
was a sufficient increase in the pro
dtiction of coal i" more than com
pensate fm the loss iu tnetalUfetou*
mines, occasioned hy t he special
causes alluded to, so that the total
value of production reached lo a sum
larger than that of any previous
year, nnd this, too. notwithstanding
that the prices at which the value

eral instances materially lower than
the average prices used in the yeai

"Summarizing the position as it
affects the several districts, it may
be stated with confidence, that the
mining industry of the province is in
a generally satisfactory condition
Of course there are some features
that may not be so characterized,
but speaking of the industry as a

justified. Thete is good reason In
look fnr an Increasing production of
most of the minerals which contrl

notwithstanding that there arc
known to lie several mines whieli

Editor Tlie Herald:
May I inquire through jour columns the reason of the most remarkable laxity displayed by the city
council iu delaying to give an account nf iheir stewardship during the
past year?
The unbusinesslike attitude Is considerably enhanced by thr fad lhat
the majority of the men who now
compose the council arc again seeking tu return In the council i-luun-
bei Whether it Is intended or not,
it surely must appear to any ratepayer with nny business instincts at
all, ;i piece uf unbridled audacity1
Fm iwo years we huve had no pub
lie meeting In discuss mutters relat
Ing in our civic aflalrs, and have
been handed a balance sheet nf accounts after the elections lor the
year are over, when the aldermen
and mayor are beyond the reach ol
criticism Everything may lu* O.K.
and il this is so, we ought to have a
chance tn publicly riprcss ourselves
belore we go to thc polls, tlo the
aldermen realize that they arc scrolls ot the ratepayers? Thankless
as this task may be, it should be
performed properly, and I lor one
protest against this shiftless method
of closing up thc civic year.
I am, yours faithfully,
Robert Hughes.

teams.
Late 011 Monday uttcrnoon four

directly after dinner play commenced
between four rinks and tno four visiting Kernie rinks.
Thc teams    were skipped sis
lows:
Cranhronk.
Cameron

Tbe ice was hardly at Its best
frost having come too suddenly
too severely, but each rink was In
pretty good shape and fairly good
play was possible.
The several games were keenly contested, the sport being watched by
a large number of Interested spectators.
In the outcome honors were pretty
evenly divided, the visitors winning
two and losing two.
The victories vete scored hy the
Dill and Olsen rinks over Wilson und
McSweyn rinks. The l.iphnrdt and
(irant rinks were defeated hy the
Cameron and Huberts rinks.

Tuesday evening the young ladies of
the Phllethea club were the guests id
the Voung Men's liaraca club nl the
Haptist church      They met at     the)
residence of Mr. II. Corbet, Lumsden
avenue, "matched hearts" and re
paired to tho rink as a skating
party, returning for refreshments and
a social time later in the evening
Some forty were in attendance and
it was a thoroughly enjoyable af
fair.
James Finlay for Mayor.
A Wilmer correspondent says:
"With the prospective near approach
of the Kootenay Central railway,
which is pushing forward into this
part from the south, and which
should be near to us by the close of
Illl, there is every hope expressed
by mining men that prosperous times
like those of 181)8-911 wilt comp once
more. It is expected tfiat prospect
imi will be done on a much greater
scale than at any time in the past
and that some ol the undeveloped
properties will be opened. Not any ol
the mines in this part arc being
worked at present but in the times
above mentioned hoth thc Paradise
and the Ptarmigan were snippets oi
The means by which the ore
then had to he taken to market was
sn expensive that it was not deemed
advisable to push the work further
Machinery is in place at hoth mines,
warehouses are built on the Colum
hia river and the connecting roads
arc kept in good condition."

I The long-pending question of the
SoOgbces reserve has been finally
settled. The British Columbia gov
eminent. last week dosed arrangements with the Hudson's Bay company for the purchase of the new
reserve selected by Chief Cooper nnd
the heads of the Songhees band at
Maplebank on Esquimau harbor. The
Indians have agreed to remove from
the old reserve before April. Meanwhile the British Columbia government are taking up the question of
the disposition of the lands across
the harbor, which are ot the extent
of 112 acres, more or less, where
there are already applications for
large areas for use as railway terminals. What tbe addition of thc
water frontage, and lands heretofore
held by the Indians, will mean to
the commercial development of Victoria soon after the Indians have vacated in the early spring Is easy to
imagine.

"While more fruit is shipped from
the Milton-Frcewater country tha
from any other portion of the Walla
Walla valley few people realize that
there is not a bearing orchard in thr
district with more than twenty
acres in it." This statement was
made by II. I). Kamb, manager ol
ihe Milton Fruit Growers' union, to
a Walla Walla newspaper man. In
all, nearly KfJU cars or fruit were
shipped from this district during the
.summer, the union handling about
Mm cars. About one-hall million
dollars was received by these small
fruit growers.
Mr. I.anih further said that while
many fruit growers have less than
live acres, and there arc scores ol
two and three acre bearing orchards,
the ten-acre orchard is considered the
ideal one for si/e.
Those going into fruit growing now
are getting away from the "mixed"
orchard idea, thinking there is more
money in specializing. While this is
true in one .sense, the labor problem
makes the growing of fruit wind,
ripens at different times preferable,
as the owner and his family ran take
care of it better and wilh less

RECORD IMMIGRATION
A Winnipeg despatch says: It is
announced that immigration for the
year shows a total of .125.0OO, the
greatest in thc history ot Canada for
quality and quantity. In Winnipeg
75,000 Hritishrrs had detrained.
The quality of the settlers wns of
a better type physically and materially than in the past. The men
went less to tbe towns and more on
the lund.
The government gave away In the
last two years to homesteaders an
area equal to Illinois, and yet has
available 200,000 homesteads, un
area equal to Ohio.
I'nitcd States settlers brought in
an average of a thousand dollars
each in stork and Implements. They
wen.1 mostly lurmers of experience
nnd went direct on the land. Thc
total number of American farmers

An extraordinary trial began al
Nantes recently. An alleged brigand is held accountable for a long
series ol robberies, thefts, assaults,
and murders in a number of departments stretching from the Riviera
to the vicinity of Nantes and Bordeaux. He has already been sen
fenced to death by a court martini
of Marseilles for shooting a fellow
soldier at Orassc, deserting the
army, and attempting to kill a pub
licaii, and to hard labor for life by
the assi?t- court of Nice at lhe outset
of his chequered career.
If he were to be judged separately
for each of his misdeeds, the trials
might ettend over a period of tweti
ty-fivc years, and he would hnve an
opportunity of appearim; in various
iBtize courts from one end of the
country to the other It took the
police and gendarmes nearly a year
to hunt him down, says the "Tele
graph," and durini; that time la- i-
accused of having committed twenty-
one crimes in the neighborhood ol
Nantes in one month alone.
All tbat tbe man needed to inake
his way through the country was
brazen boldness. Entering farm
houses, he threatened Hie occupants
with the guns he stole from them,
and when he needed a bicycle he simply took the first that came lo hand.
If an attempt was made io hold him
up, he merely showed his gun, and if
that did not have its effect he lind
He chose bis residences in the same
way, and It is reported of him thai
he occupied a villa in the country undisturbed for months.
The owner happened la return one
day, and found the doors and win
dows barred. Inside then- were in
genlOUB contrivance;, with wires and
bells, by which the alleged bricaud
would iv warned if anyone came
disturb him. The villa was stock-d
with good things Freshly-plucked
fowls wore lying about, and two
chickens bad just been roasted and
were ready to he eaten The bed
had been used also, and alongside, on
a rhair, u book was lying open It
was u novel which the strange occupant bad been reading dm ing his |el
sure moments
Holes had been pierced In the
walls, sn that the alleged brigand
could see in everv direction of Hie
country without stirring from his
bed, and thc windows had beeu padded up so that his light  tld not be
seen when Iw was reading at night.
Tbe proprietor of the villa was as
tonished to find numerous other on
Jecta which be had never seen
his house before. They were school
boy bags, an assortment of classic
books, und an Alpine climber's wallet, containing onions, potatoes and
ducks.
Within sight of the villa, not a
mile away, was the field where a girl
who had been tending sheep was kill
ed. A short, distance further on
was a village wliere a schoolmistress
had been assaulted at night in her
own room, and compelled tn give up
every penny that she possessed, nnd
when the brigand left her in the
morning hr showed her his gun, and

For the present Mr. Sehwit/er's

Fort Steele's Progress
A correspondent, writing to the
Nelson News from f-ori Steele,
says:
At Ibe "meeting of Uie waters"—
the clear running Si. Mary's and the
historic Wild Horse with the noble
Kootenay — the location of Kort
Steele is one of the finest in a
province having hundreds of beautiful
townsites; and I use the word "tin's t" here in its widest pnssihle
sense As regards its natural beau-
its climate, lis scenery, its soil,
its salubrity, the purity, convenience
and abundance of its water supplv;
Us geographical position—almost tbe
exact center of South Kast Kootenay, topographically, a downgrade
to it irom every direction (even from
the south), Klko being 580 (eel higher, while westerly Kimherley Is
l.ioti and Cranbrook about B00   teet
higher.
Its population bus doubled m 1910,
with the certainty Ihal nnt year it
will double attain, and that with
completed rntlvvav connection ax

transcontinental route, and the na
tural business, ccntet ot a tme aghcui
tur.il and fruit  growing vallev,      it
will eon tit  for alt time tn    make
sohd and substantial growth. The resources ot (he district naturally tributary to the tOWn are of the most
varied description Placet mining
n Wild Horse creek, lode mining at
many points in the mountain range
to the eastward—hitherto prospects
onlv, hut soon, with transportation
easy of access, to become shipping
centres; timber that may be ratted
town the Kootenny and its trihutar-
11 lea over au area of hundreds of miles;
grain, vegetable nnd fruit farming
and grazing lands. Kxceptlng in the
matter of small fruits (which are
• nltlvatcd witb complete success),
tin- growing of apples, pears, plums,
.md cherries is onlv ns yet In the
development stage, but so far as
experiments have lun, conducti-d (In
private gardens only) all the hardier
varieties of these fruit!, will no doubt
become a source of living income in
the not far oil future to hundreds ol
careful cultivators. Intending set
tiers having this Industry in view
should select their purchases peisui-
ally and always keep in mind the
question of irrigation.
Kort Steele has a good pulil c
school, likely next year to require
two teachers; a provincial govern
ment building and ihe Indian ofllce
for the districi, it has also three
churches and two public halls There
will be considerable huilding m-vt

British Immigration
TIDE WILL    RUN  stuov; THIS
COMING YEAH
"It looks as if the coming season
wi-nlil he one of the greatest on record for immigration from (treat
Hritain to Canada," said T. Howell
of the Canadian Nor I hern immigration department to a press represent-
atlVo in Toronto last weel:.
Mr. Howell arrived a few days ago
from Kngland, wliere he stated that
arrangements had been completed for
the lirst party of ftritlsh Immigrants
to Canada to sail as early as January 11th. It will consist of two
hundred domestics, and men who intend to take up land In the west.
The reasons given In Kngland for
another ' big movement to Canada
are said to Ih- irresistible. While
times are not so bail iu Kngland a
at previous periods, there is a sur
plus of labor, aud the wage earners
see In Canada not only a better!
chance (nr profitable employment,
but a much better outlook for their
children Mr. Howell will go back
tn Kngland on .lune -.th in thc
tcrests of the c.N it. colonlratlon.
