The growth of the Young Men's
Christian association has been marvelous. There are now 8,000 associations among 15 nationalities and representing all denominations, with a
total membership of over 800,000,
This, since 1844. The railway department of the association wns organized tf years ago. There are now
1)0,(11)11 members In 250 local associations. Today eighty per cent of all
the railroad mileage on this continent
contributes directly to ilu* financial
support of the work.
It is interesting to know that the
Canadian Pacific Railway company is
iu the front rank as a supporter of
this great work. The company
turns over to tin* provincial Y. M.
C. A. ihe building it erects as the
properly of Ihe association under

These associations, with their reading rooms, game rooms, swimming
pools, bat lis, bowling alleys, gymnasiums, with their physical, mental
and spirit mil I raining classes provide
up-to-date resorts for young men and
are foremost in contributing to true
manly sport  and genuine self-help.
There is general rejoicing in Toronto over the splendid work under
way for the young people ol that
progressive city. Six world records
have been broken hy the young men's
committees in their nine days campaign. Nearly $700,000 vvas secured.
Among those giving their moral and
financial support were the ltculcnant-
governor, a prominent Jewish rabbi
nml his congregation, the Street
Railway company, besides a large
number of the city's most prominent
labor and business men. The movement is now made to include the wiping out of the Broadview Boys' Institute debt and the raising of
another $150,000 for the Young
Women's Chrisl ian Association,
il 10,0110 of which is already covered.
The B. C. coast towns and cities
are rapidly becoming impressed with
lhe material advantages ol a weekly
half-holiday. The prevailing custom
of the business places Is to lake a
Weekly afternoon off during the summer months. They lind It pays,
though some are slow to see it.
The great departmental stores and
many other business and factory
bouses in Toronto close iu the slimmer for the weekly half holiday. One
of the largest concerns has just purchased a liuc IK acre athletic park [or
its .f.iinn employes, providing ample
room for tennis, lacrosse, cricket,
base and foot ball and other sports.
Another contribution to tbe cause
of clean sport has been made in
Winnipeg. The Moose club of lhat
city was visited by the police, as a
result of Which the proprietor wm
asked by the court to hand over
■Tii"! for keeping a gambling house.
In connection with this some thirty-
five gamblers, including a number of
young "bloods," contributed to the
proceedings of the court. Tlie force
is evidently determined to clean out
these less pools of corruption.
\ hot campaign is now on iu California against the professional ring.
This ir partly the result id the
death ol McCarthy in his recent fight
with Moran, an injury similar to
that which killed Pugilist Cmiii-v in
a previous brutal contest.
Last week the Presbyterian senate
of British Columbia, iu two strong
resolutions, censured the minister ol
justice (or his attitude on the race
track gambling question and iu pardoning Skill and (ircen who had
pleaded guilty to selling obscene literature, and who were condemned hy
Ihe judge to two years imprisonment. On the latter the following
was adopted- "It is the unanimous
opinion of tbis court that the action
of the minister of justice has exhibited a moral obtuscness which
renders him unfit (or the position of

ICIsuwIicre In this issue we publish

Uiul ii is iml duo to any extravagance or bad management, but mainly, il nut entirely, to circumstances
uver which tin- council have practically no control. Une large Item oi

could under the circumstances confronting them, wi- believe Unit il will
prove profitable tn examine very
carefully all Items id expenditure
wilh a view to ascertaining whether
in mil it is possible to curtail certain operating expenses nl present
apparently somewhat heavy.
Says a Calgary exchange:
"Residents ol this province and the
prairie country gencrnlly will be
pleased to note the revival of the
mining industry iu British Colum,,i
New strikes ale being reported and
mines which have been idle are bring
re*opcncd with large forces of men.
There may Iw some thing mercenary
in the go-mi wishes of tbe prairie
people, but thai the sanguine expectations nl the mining men of tbe
coast province will hi* realized is our
best wish, liritisli Columbia mining
camps are among our best markets.
Nobody wants a mining boom, hut
there are many claims located and
still unstaki-d whieli will return
rich harvest to those who have their
ultimate development, if that development can be hastened in any
way it means dollars ami cents to
the people ihis side of the mountains.
At present we arc sending a whole
lot of money over lor li. C. lumber
and (ruit. If larger markets are de-
veloped across the mountains it will
mean ihal there will hr a greater
demand lur tin- products of the Alberta farms ami randies and tin* Interchange of trade between the two
western provinces will in- stimulated
to a great extent."
The foregoing remarks are as well
worthy Hu- careful attention of residents of ihjs province as of the province ol Alberta. Tho community of
interests between liritisli Columbia
nnd Alberta are very marked ami the
moro each province strives to enlarge
nnd strengthen these interests tho
better il will be lor both. Wc iu
Hritish Columbia must, note with unalloyed satisfaction the rapid settling up nf our sister province, fur
thai means steadily increasing markets fnr uur fruiis and lumber.
The public holiday tomorrow will
doubtless be observed In the proper

of class ami creed. King Kdward

take this opportunity of paying a

on poultry, under ibe auspices of tho

vast amount of the cash sn spent was
sent out ol the province and contended that such should not tie the
case. Seeing we were blessed with
a climate that was fully adapted lor
poultry raising, and moreover, it
was the intention of the government
to encourage in every possible way
tlm poultry business (or profit and
pleasure. The lecturer was very enthusiastic about Cranhrook being
suitable in every way for the poultry
business nnd declared that in this
district we had an ideal place lor
dairy farming and poultry production, ami said that poultry was nGJtl
to fruit growing Irom a commercial
.standpoint, ami seeing that wo sent
out of the province the large sum of
two ami a quarter millions of dollars and recognizing the fact that
eggs ns a food came next to Hour

was very expensive iu the Kootenay

got good prices lor eggs, compared
to other places Pointing out that

The lecturer then pointed out the
three chief factors to take into consideration in going into poultry raising.
First, the land; second, capital,
third, labor.
Mr. .lull pointed out that we had
land in abundance iu the Cranbrook
district, al a reasonable price, and
that for a slarl it did not take such
a great amount of capital. And as
for labor that anyone commencing
could furnish all bis own labor and
pointing oul, liy the way, that poultry raising was an ideal one for women and paid them the compliment
that he was certain they could make
as good a success of it as the men.
The lecturer Ihen dwelt largely on
the besl methods of raising stock,
pointing out tin* absolute necessity
of having nothing nut lirsl-class
stock al all  times, pure breeds, etc.
With respect to incubator!-, lie urged
upon bis audience the need of u til living only flrat-clasi makes. Mc also
gave much valuable information ou
poultry houses and then construction.
lie referred casually lo the Phllo
system, saying lhat he had not so
much faith in ii, bul in discussion
was forced to ndrr.il that in Nelson
the system was being tried and was
proving a success.

Advantages of Investments
in Oil Securities
It is stated, hy the best ol oil authorities that »fi per
cent ut the wells drilled in ihe proven /one of the Coalings
held produce oil. Vou must therefore realize that the element io risk in an oil Investment is practically eliminated.
Furthermore, placing your   mono)  in   oil companies means
quick, and iu must eases, large returns, particularly so in
cases where tho companies are operating In shallow territory
whieli assures inexpensive drilling and ijuictf action on the
invested capital.
Crude oil ul the present market prico is being purchased
from the producer at sixty-three cents per imirel at the
well. Mi. Aubrey, California Stale Mineralogist, states
thai oil at $1 per barrel is cheaper fuel than coal. Two
and a half barrels of oil arc equal to as fuel a toil of cool,
.so thut quantity of oil at a dollar a barrel or $2.fi0 is Unequal of a ton of cool at $8.
Taking the federal geologists (inures as a basis for calculation,   there   i.s ni   present  iu   the Coalinga Distriet oil
worth $2,0(10,000,000.     The great (' stock mines produced
only $015,000,000.
The property of the Coalinga
Eureka    Oil   Company,
close to Great Gusher
The holdings ol Hie Coalinga Eureka oil Company consists of eighty acres, .situated in Section 21, Township 21
South, Itniige II Kast, Fresno County, California, separated
hy only two sections from the famous Section (|, the home
nf  the grout "Silver Tip" gusher ami  of the
Luetic, Amy, Pacific States Oil Companies, etc., all of
whom rani- foremost among the bin producers of this great
field. Section is, adjoining the Coalinga Eureka property
is tlie scene of unequalled activity. Derricks have been
built, tools hauled mil and drilling operations are being
carried on with relentless energy. It is the undoubted
opinion of experts and practical oil men Ibat Sections IX and
21 are destined to produce some of the most remarkable
wells in the Coalinga Held. K. W. Creston. probably the
besl expert In the whole of the Coalinga field, and Superintendent o! the Consolidated oil Company (which adjoins our
Coalinga-Eurcka property) also General Manager of the New
York Coalinga ami Aladdin oil Companies (all producing)
writes regarding tho property (.f the Coalinga Eureka Oil
"Vou u.sk me to give an expert reporl nu your laud in

"careful examination of the properly. Vou hove the same
"Identical formation that has made the entire West side of

"I have been trying to purchase this same tract. While I
