Stories ni a startling revolution in
Llic const ruction ot future warships
come Irom Portsmouth.
It is said thai thr next Dreadnought in he built there will have
motor engines, and consequently tlio
vessel will he without funnels, hollers, stokeholds, and the other prominent features in steam. This will
mean a construction wholly different
tn the present typo ot lighting vessel,
as startling in its change as when
stenui flrsl superseded nailing,
At present Hn1 internal combust Ion

submarines    and   other .small craft,
Whether it has yet been brought   to

In other words, it would innke the
mighty Orion, launched only n few
days ogo, an obsolete vessel.
it is Intcrefltlfig to recall that in
Mr. Max Pemlier ton's famous novel
"Tbe Iron Pirate," his wonderful
warship was driven hy Internal combustion, and failed at the critical
moment owing to lhe difficulty of
The news nf a motor-driven warship has taken thi' engineering world
liv surprise, Iml evidence that lhu
admiralty have something big up
ihi'ir sleeve is the foci thai the successor tn II.M.S. Orion nn the building slip will not he commenced until
the Ns w Vein. This delay is sn unusual as In have caused much comment for a long lime.
The Important point is that in>
where iu Portsmouth naval circles is
the report ol a motor-driven battleship, In hi* built at an early slate,
discredited, and, seeing how secrel
are ail lhe dnings of the admiralty
nowadays, since the Introduction sif
ilu* Dreadnought regime, it is assumed that the statement made is in
substance correct.
The Portsmouth Kvcning News,
whieli nave tin- first hint ol tl"' great
revolution in shipbuilding, says:
Regarding mir Information, we
have nothing to add ami nothing tn
take away frnm the sUls-nu-nt made,
and our advice to those who dniiht
nr disbelieve is similar in tbat nl a
famous statesman—"waii and see."
All British submarines arc motor
driven, ami their engine horse power
has speeslily developed up tn nearly
MM. The chief difficulty has been
found with the use nl nil fuel. Petrol is very heal inn. and for that reason it cannol be used in engines
above a certain horse power, but the
admiralty experts have only lately
iicvcln|ied experimentally the use on
submarines ni crude nil such as is obtained from Scotch shale distilleries.
It is understood ihe pn-seut project is in couple a number nt high-
(lower comparatively Iou running internal csmibiistisin engines using this
oil upon one shaft, and tn use more
than four shafts, with which all the
present H-ri-ailrnniglits are equipped.
The advantage of these engines over
strain turbines is Immense, for the
weight saved ean is* used in Increasing the lighting qualities of tbe ship
and to give lier more speed, or heavier armament nr armor.
The great nbstacle ts> the use of
internal combustion motors on destroyers and un ai mores! cruisers has
hern lhe noise of the exhaust, bill
this dirt's nnt diminish the lighting
value ol an a r mo nil ship. Kxpcri-
menis witli new motors upon II.M.S.

cruder   Hampshire tbe Dreadnought
Was equipped with tlit-m. and had
foui propellers instead of two. Motor-driven battleships will hear no
smokestacks. will have no boilers,
and   will    need ||M stokers.   Such a
ssel will, however, give \ent tn ,i
horrible smell.
Fully three years ago the admiral
tv had in view a revolution iu the
means ot propulsion. In 1 ••»; the sir
partmeiit o( ihe .n«lneer-iii-cliiel hai
■ sirucied two Installations ni   gas
engines of •"•tm home power, with gas*
producers, which have since lieen tho
roughly tested. Mr. William Beard-
more, of Glasgow, contributed much
towards the solution of early dilli-
cullies, and the Vickers company approached the problem on novel lines.
Mr. McKechuie, ol tho latter company, said they were even then prepared to accept an order for a battleship lit ted with this system of propulsion, with all the guarantees Incidental tsi such an undertaking
It is claimed for the Vickers system that it would enable a saving to
he made sif forty per cent In fuel, nf
thirty-three per cenl in space occupied, nnd of twenty-live per cent in
weight; Numerous cylinders would
huve tn he adopted, and the engines
might, therefore, he heavier than
steam motors fnr the same power,
Imt the ^as producer would lie lighter .than lhe roller, aud the machinery
would he t.'ss complicated, and would
require the services of a loss numerous personnel. It would thus ne
possible lo concentrate greater force
nn the actual lighting elements of the
ship, both personal and material.
II was recent I) staled that tin* admiralty had given orders fnr au experimental internal combustion plant
nf 1(1,000 horse power, but engineers
have regarded the difficulties as enormous, Vet that Ihey are being snivel! is clear, ami inventive genius is
active both at home aud abroad, Wo
shall certainly nnt be outdistanced in
this matter. The order which has
been given by the llamhurg-Aiuerika
Line lo Messrs. lllohm aud Voss for
a vessel of considerable si/e propelled
by internal combustion engines is
proof enough thai a revolution is in
sight. Even ir engines of 30,000
horse [tower were required, it would
still lie possible to save largely In
weight aud space.
The immediate result would be to
add enormously to the lighting power
of ships. The absence of funnels
would greatly increase the training
arc of lire of gun barbettes, and tbe
ships would become more than ever
floating gun-mountings of enormous
capacity. The reduction In engine
space would permit larger ammunition supplies, and tbe problem of
mounting heavy guns would lie greatly simplified
The absence of smoke would he
another advantage. The ship would
become a smaller target, aud thus
would bave an immense superiority
over ships of other classes. It is,
in short, Impossible to exaggerate
the importance of the revolution tbat
is contemplated.
A point which has yet to lie settled
is whether the greatest development
is lo ri'st with the gas-engine sir tlie
oil-engine. Itolb have enormous ad-
vantagca over the steam engine.
These advantages include the following:
Funnels will be unnecessary.
Stoking will be done away with.
The tiii*l bills will tie very much
Fewer men will be required.
The weight of tbe machinery to be

It sounds such a simple thin); to dn
to jot down a few of tlu* reminiscences of a part of out's life, but 1
liml it most difficult. Coming into
the Columbia valley .it Golden in
lust;, just a youngster, everything In
tlie country appealed to me, and
having a humorous twist in my nature I saw something to laiiiih at in
everything, but after itarvlng fur
tuo or three days tl arrived without
a cent) the humor ut the situation
did not appeal to me quite so satisfactorily, and on explaining the situation to the hotel keeper, i was
naked: "What's the matter with the
ate and the woodpile." l [mediate
ly went out to see, hut not observing anything particularly striking
about either llie woodpile sir the Bite,
I came hack and reported that as far
as i could Judge there dldn'l seem to
be anything the mutter with either
When he grasped the extent ol my
knowledge it took Ave minutes pound
ing on the Imck to tiring him round
and I firmly believe i hat even now he
believes In my innocence.
However, I split his wood atid In*
cidciitally kept hooks foi .1. ('. Mayes, who was i.iin'.iV.! up in a hotel,
store, sawmill and steamboat.
Kor all its roughness the country
was well behaved, due probably i<>
Sberffl Redgrave, who was unite In
his element clearing the country of J
uiidesirahles, and after the murder nl
It.iiid, the whiskey pedlar, bj Bull
dot* Kelly mnl the subsequent ehaae
ami ul tempi at exttaslilion, ami Iln-
inurder Of        the I wn pruspietuts    at
iN'adtnnn   Creek, lupposedl) by   si
WUheS-  anil   which    has  never      heen
satisfactorily explained, the vallej
was ii model of orderliness, id
course some of this was due to tin-
presence ot tlie N. YY. Mounted Police,
who eame in IH87, some eighty-five
men under the command of Major
SteelOi tO quieten the restlessness of
the Indians, and who loealsi) nt nml
named Kort Steele. At this time
there were no wagon roads In the
country and few trails, the up-couu-
try freight heing taken up hy steamboats while high water lasted, nml
rowboats subsequently. The pack
trail from Golden to Windermere—
ahout 7!» miles—seemed to prefer the
high spots and my first trip up on
toot was good exercise. From Windermere on to Galhraitli's Ferry via
Fort Steele was lielter. The country being more open; at the Ferry
the trail split up into three forks,
one to Wild Hoist*, one on to Tobacco Plains and thenee to Kalispel and
one (which was the main travelled
and moat Important me) to      Sand
Point In Idaho, This was the trail
that brought iu the gold prospectors
in hundreds, Immediately the news uf
tbe discovery of Wild Horse reached
the States, and particularly the old
California miners who were root loose.
This was in lf-itil and 1885, but was
the main artery ol this country until 1882. The custom house was at
the spot where Cranbrook now is
and Major Norrjs was the utlicer in
charge when 1 made my lirst trip.
A. W Vowell was then governnienl
agent, with the offiw mov-ed tu Dun
aid on completion of the 6.P-JI.
Very soon after this Michael Phillips
found the eoal that has made this
country famous, and was tin- only
one that did not maul' a small fortune out uf it, although, ii anj
man deserved it, he did. Colonel
Maker, then uur M.P.P., did his besl
in intcrrAt rorelgn capital In tbe eoal
fields, hut nn account of want of
transportation, nothing was dime for
years. It was close Upon fourteen
years before any of the holders of
lhe original shares were able to
claim a proiit.
\ good deal of placer mining was
going on in those days, Wild Horse
Perry Creek, Movie. Weaver Creek,
Hull River, Finlay Creek, all had
gangs working, In fact thai was the
chlcl occupation ol the country, and
il will he quartz mining thut will
eventually make this om- of the mo-s*i
prosperous sections of It. ('., as far
as une can judge, after lumbering has
had its slue. In 1888 the canal between the Columbia and Kootenay
rivers was bull! under the management nt u. HuIIIIg Grohman, but
this project did nut lead tu great
luiluues fm the Instigators or shall
we say perpetrators, for a joke is
always a joke.
In      1890 came     the first authentic
rumors of the building of the Crows
Nest PosS railway, alter many years
of waiting, and sure enough construction commenced in the following
year. There wen* then several
steamboats running on tin: Kootenay
from Jennings on tho Great Northern io the North Star Landing, carrying passengers and galena ore from
the North Star mine. Unfortunately, in •lune, 18!-7, three nf thom
were wrecked in tho canon nud the
boom that had jusl begun vvas badly
nipped, and completely stopped the
growth of Fort Steele.
In passing over the time between
the departure sif tho police and the
advent ot the railway, one bas to
omit several events of Importance,
such as the printing ol tho lirst paper, The Prospector, tlm holdup ol
the Chinamen at Wolf Creek, the
discovery of the Norlli Star mine,
tbe robbery of the mail from Wasa,
the discovery ol the Movie mine, etc.,
all ul which caused a ripple ol     es-
citemettt, but these events were few
aud far between and the general
course of life was most uneventful,!
not like our present existence, but I
taking it all in all I prefer the bygone days, when the charm of the
hills anil the naturalness of life wore
not obscured hy afternoon tea and
visiting cards.
N. A. Walllnger.
During the past summer forest lires
have lieen devouring the growth of
centuries with ruthless rapacity.
Northern Ontario, Manitoba and
Hritish Columbia have Buffered must.
Fine tracts of mt reliant able timber
worth millions of dollars have been
destroyed, square mllo upon square
mile of young growth coming on to
supply the demands of the future has
teen wiped out ol existence. In
Northern Ontario, where but a thin
layer of vegetable mould covers the
rocks, tbe soft, uu/y forest lloor, the
only hope of vegetation und equable
stream How has been compl3i.--.ly -lea*
troytd, leaving a ilwerlesa t-wkj
waste for generations to come. l**cn
if no thought he given to tho i.timl-et
ol lives lost, it t.nst bo adi;.ltted
that the loss occaslomvl '.his year hv
forest lires bus heen nothing short ol
Can nothing he done, then, to prevent tbis loss? The answer Is lhat
mtteh can be dune. The solution ul
tho problem is Indicated In two
words—public sentiment. The two
principal causes ol forest tires are
campers and railways, and public
opinion must be brought to bear upon Ibese. The tourist-camper does
not at all realize the extent of tho
tlamago wbicb his unextinguished
camp lire may du, Laws against
leaving camp fires burning nre already on the statute hooks, but It is
quite evident that their observance
rests mainly with the tourist himself, lie must he Impressed with the
very serious nature ol his offence. If
a man sets tire to a building, he is
convicted of arson and sent to prison as a felon, hut if bis unextinguished samp life burns down millions ot dollars worth of Umber aud
perhaps destroys human life as well,
he Is, at best, made to pay a small
tine. When public opinion views Ibis
carelessness of the camper as a
criminal act nnd frowns upon him
accordingly, considerable progress
Will have been made in lessening the
number of forest Ores rrom tbis
Hut It is the railwavs that spread
the most destruction. Traversing,
as they do, the great lune stretches
ol uninhabited t imber areas, the
i sparks from    their locomotives stall
numerous lires that gain great headway before being detected. Too
often the right-of-way, piled with
inllammnble rubbish, furnishes a tln-
dcr-box for these conflagrations. The
owner of destroyed property along
the line has tumid it almost impossible under the present laws to get
damages from the railway company,
so difiieult is it to fix the responsibility, and so expensive is tho process
of litigation. In order tn lessen the
number of tires due to this cause, the
committee on forests of the commission of conservation bus proposed to
make the railways peculiarly responsible. It has recommended th.ut
there be added to the Railway Act a
clause making them liable tu a line
of $1,000, recoverable by summary
prosecution More a stipendiary magistrate or two justices of the peace,
for every lire started by sparks from
their locomotives. It makes no difference whether the fire begins outside the right-of-way or spread**,
ibercfrom tu udjoining land. The
railways ure exempt Irom this fine
if tbey can show that they have the
best modern appliances on their locomotives to prevent the emission of
sparks, that their employees have
not shown negligence iu conducing to
the starting sif the fire, aad that
they have maintained au ellicient ami
properly equipped stall of Ore-rangers. In other words, the committee
proposes to lessen tbe number ol
lires caused hy sparks from locomotives by having the railways lined foi
the damage they do, unless t hey
take every possible precaution to
prevent such damage. This is obviously a fair recommendation as regards both the railways and the
public, and the effort lu have n made
law is worthy ol public support,
Every Canadian is deeply interested
in the protection of uur (uresis, foi
each forest lire means that Tip and
his children will have tu pay higher
prices for every toot of lumber they
use. Such a measure, fur the preservation of our forests, as thai reconi-
mettded by the committee on forests
of the commission uf conservation
Bhould, therefore, commend Itself to
every public-spirited citizen uud
newspaper in Canada.

CRANBROOK, B. C, September 15,1110
Tliis week's edition uf tho Herald
is nil Ml shed mainly with u view tu
stimulating Interest in Cranbrook's
Fall Fair. It is double tbo ordinary
sizo nnd contains a great deal of
matter thai cannot fail tu in* ot interest tu our many realtors. If Llic
ndditlona] trouble and expense. we
havo Incurred iu getting up this
special issue assist in some .small
measure, in adding to tlie success uf
tht* Kail Fair wo shall lie well repaid. Tin- Herald is a firm believer
in ibe general utility of agricultural
fairs and it believes thai ll lhe
residents ol tbe distriet Interested
can be aroused to actively take part
in these annual events a long step
forward will have been taken In the
direction of improving farming conditions ami uf making known tu the
world at large iht- true potentialities uf ibe district. We ran vouch
for ii tbal exceptional Interest has
been displayed this year in the prc-
pnmtions fur tlio fair by ail con-
necled with II ami ll lliere In* anv

have heen entrusted. We feci that
Itic hard work clone by the various
officials, all quite gratuitously,
should meel with Hn- only response
thul will lie at all acceptable tu

tbe exhibits will lie not only more

more diversified nnd really representative uf ihe dislrirt Tbe Herald ran assure ail visitors a insist
cordial welcome and a thoroughly

proper. Tbe hope uf the fair directors is that upon the success of
this year's show tbey will be able
h> Imilil up an annual agricultural
Full Fair thai will rank anions the
best iu tlio province. The aim Is an
houorahle. une and merits tho hearty
support of every resident in Kast
[tumors from tlu* coast point tu
tlie early materialization uf the Herald's prediction, of several weeks
hack, tbat W. It* Robs, M.P.I*., ol
Kernie, is shortly to he ealled to
tin- McBride cabinet. There is nothing delluitu known as yet us to the
portfolio he is to take over, hut
rumor lias it that he is tu relieve
Napoleon Bowser sif the attorney-
generalship. Tbat move wuuld
hardly ho in accord with the sagacity heretofore shown by Premier Me*
Bride in choosing bis colleagues.
Bowser is the right man In the
right place as attorney-general in
Mi-Bride's cabinet, whereas Buss
would he sadly uut uf place in su
responsible a position. There is
talk of tbe early retirement of Hon.
II. K. Voting, minister ot education,
Irom political life. In that event
Boss might well he bis successor. As
nn cx-pedagogue, Buss bas some
familiarity with educational matters
and hy adhering closely tu his predecessor's lead might easily keep
frum blundering. In tbr course uf
the next week ur two we may look
fur some definite nmiomiccmenl in
ihis conMeet I on,
An eminently practical suggestion
was made liy Mr. M. A. Maeslsuinlil
at Ibe lioard uf trade meeting on
Tuesday evening, when be Intimated
tbat the time was ripe (or the organization <>[ a distriet (loud Bonds
Association. Mr Macdonald pointed uut lliat the growing number uf
automobile owners would form an
admirable nucleus uf such an organization. We commend this suggestion ts> the careful consideration, nut
only s»f motorists, but to the residents Kent-rally uf Cranhrook district
The (iuud Boads movement is one in
wbicb every man and woman in tin
country should lake au active inter
esi.    Good Roads associations liavi
accomplished a great deal fur the
betterment of agricultural conditions
in the provinces of Outurlu and
Quebec and equally guud work could
be dune in British Columbia, years
'ago au effort was made tu establish
a provincial Good Roads association
iu this province, but owing lo tho
veiled hostility of the provincial government at that time, nothing came
of it. Now, however, tho province
is more thickly settled and the pcoplo
can mure effectively Impress their
wishes upon the powers that bo. We
fes'l sure that a wisely conducted
campaign iu favor id (iuud Roads
would today prove eminently miccess-
I'ul and it would he a good move fur
su importanl a section as ibe Cranhrook district to make n start in
tbal direction.
The Herald records with sins-crest
regret the death s»f Charles Ink, foreman uf the Nelson News, one uf tbe
hesl known ami whitest type stickers
thai ever set foot in British Columbia. Tbe late Charlie Ink wns an
uld lime resident uf tlie province
and iu bygone years was associated
with tin* late John Houston in the
publication uf papers al Donald, un
lhe coast ami in Nelson. Ile was a
remarkable character in many respects, hut withal a man uf sterling
worth. A loyal friend under all
elrciiinstances ami a faithful, untiring
employee. Fur seven years Charlie
ink served as foreman uf lhe Nelson
News under the writer's management
uud in all that lime be was ever
unsparingly devoted to ihe best Interests of tho paper. His death
will lie sincerely mourned by old
timers throughout the Kootenay,
ami bis loss will be simply Irreparable tu bis family. A mure ile vol nil

a tloek of three bear.*;, silver tips,

tut the other a wallop nn th-' jaw

He was up in a second, swinging his
head and body low, and growling
bloody murder The fight was on,
and I hod the sight ol my life all to
myself as referee and audience.
That's tlie time I cursed my luck for
the want ol a kodak.
"I always thought thai bears
fought with their claws, and so they
do, but when there is deadly work on
band, it is tbe teeth for it every
time. In tbe first round thev clinched, head to bead, not trying Ior a
hold, but looking 'or an opening to
rip the throat with an upward
stroke of tbe holding teeth of the
lower jaw. You often saw hogs
fight* Tbat was it. but these fighter; were standing up to it holding,
fencing, striking with their awful
claws and making fur and flesh fiy
from ribs and backs—but you'd see
their heads fly in and out, back and
forth, like the heads of snakes.
That's tbe idea" Snakes heads, for
their ears were flattened back, and
the fur lay flat, too, so that their
skulls looked small and narrow in
proportion to their bodies. Now
or.e would get in a rip and the white
fat under the n«k or shoulder would
gleam white as SHOW before the blood
would squirt—so swift that upward
whirl of the tusk. With the pain of
trie wound would come a sound, half
squeal, half roar, a horrible thing
to bear, a something born ot brute
blood lust and the very joy ol fighting and killing
"Tbey [ought down and up and
alone the ground with the blood and
the llaver from their jaws catching
up the leaves and soil until you
could hardly tell what they were-
Th*- echo of their roars aud combat
came bellowing back, from the rocks
above, and, all the time, my old
queen of i***auty lay there, critically
licking her paws and waiting fnr the
winner, the old baggage.
"After a while tbe ripping was set
aside and each was trying for a hold,
a death grip. The big chap got it
a* tlie smaller fellow scrambled to
bis feet after a fail. He nailed bim
just in front of tlie shoulders, weight
was tilling, yon wre, and the figbt
was bound to end in a broken neck
unless something wonderful happmcd.
And it did. H) sotw tremendous effort the smaller animal (he was a
glorious, whole-souled, lighting son-

big muzzier What he did     down
there, or how be did it, I can't tell,
but tlie big chap let a yawp out ol
his body that meant nufl' in tbe
plainest hear language He waited

Up the BpOfSJB, and hiked like blue

1 lord International exposition ol dry
farmed pro-luots. The commoml-
inenls follow:
I. Thou slinlt plow deep.
Deep plowing permits ruin to permeate llie   soil easily   and    without
run ml,    nlso   provides more feeding
space lnr plant roots und makes
available more plant loud.
II. Thou shall keep ihe surface
soil loose.
This prevents soil moisture Irom
evaporating and conserves the ruin-
lull. Harrow grain alter il is up
Iwo inches or use weedcr.
III. Thou shalt cultivate level.
Level soil nHords the least exposure in Ihe nir and will lake in
rainfall faster than the ridged soil.
IV. Thou shalt summer tnllnw.
This should    lie practised    In     all
districts wliere the annual precipitation is less than IS Inches, as it
conserves two years' ruin (or one

VIII. Thou shalt grow emu every

The cultivation rcqulrctl for corn
saves moisture, kills weeds ami plant

more food and fodder per acre than
other crops. Mo not hill up tlie coin,
as this wastes     the moisture.
IX. Thou shalt grow clover oi

Rotating with these grasses adds
fertility and organic matter to the
soil; kills weeds and diseases of

"Professor Palmer's presentation of
the principles nf this modern nielli-
sal of tillage in the shape of precepts
appeals strongly lo the members of
the local board of control," said
Secretary Burns, ' nnd it is likely
that a substantial pri/e, will he offered for the best ten commandments
on dry farming. The plan is to submit uil to the executive committee of
the Dry Farming Congress' to cull the
best thoughts and prepare a set of

not be discussed in tbis note it may
be well to state tbal the live slock
branch bus bad its attention very urgently directed toward the prescnl
unsatisfactory status dI the business
and in recognition of its Importance
to tbe country generally, has now
decided that the time is ripe for the
Canadian government to consider a
comprehensive policy ami to undertake definite and extended measures
likely to operate toward ihe encouragement, improvi meiii and development of the Industry as a whole.
As a preliminary to the adoption
of any settled policy ami in order
that ihe live stoek commtsslonei ma)
inform himself thoroughly as tn thi
details of shrvp and wm,! trails* in
(ireat Hritain and the I'nited States
and as to conditions as they actually
prevail iu Canada, the minister ol
agriculture bus authorized the appointment of a committee of two
competent men to Investigate the
sheep situation iu general in the
three countries named. At the
same time, it is the expectation
that, without an art mil visit, thej
will gather as much Information as
possible concerning tho trade of the
other great sheep producing countries ia so 'ar as it may he of interest in the development of the industry in t'anasla. It has been
thought advisable to have this committee consist of, in the tirst plate.
p wool expert whose special training
has made him familiar with nil the
technical and practical phases ol
wool markets and woollen manufacture in the United Kingdom and
Canada and in the it*
cond place, a capable
Canadian sheep breeder whose experience has given him ■ somewhat extended knowledge of sheep farming In
this country. The* gentlemen have
already hern nppoinled and are at
present pursuing their Investigations
in (inat Britain The personnel ol
the committee consists ol Mr. W T.
ItttCh, of Manchester, Kngland, and
of Mr. W. A. Dryden, ol Hrooklyo,
Mr. Rltch, though perhaps unknown to the members of the sheep
Breeders' association, has had familiar ami hoiior.uile relationship   wrh
tradespeople in Canada for a period
Ol yean, having represented while h

Hitch's experisnee has made bim
thoroughly familiar with the woollen
industry in England and Scotland,
with the wool markets and manufacturing districts ot that country and
has besides gi»en Ium a general
knowledge of the woollen trade, including thai in staple J"1'' ihnddy articles and in the mannfartuieil product both of Kngland and America.
Me has visits'd slso In n business capacity Australia ami New Zealand
nnd had made careful observations
concerning the growing and marketing of wool in these two countries.
Combined with bis technical knowledge, Mr. Rltch has aotnilred      a
practical understanding of the growing nml handling of wool on the farm
and together with this bus evidenced an enthusiastic ami Intelligent
comprehension of what may be expected from lhe development of the
sliet'ii industry in Canada, thus commending himself tn the attention of
the commissioner in connection with
tho appointment to the committee.
It is fell thai Mi Rltch will he able
to place such information ,,i *]„■
disposal of the minister, Ins officers
and of all interested in sheep breeding in tbis country, as is likely to
he particularly valuable In the furtherance of the scheme for the upbuilding of the Industry which ia now
in contemplation.
The other member ol tbe committee, Mr W A. DrydOli, of Brooklyn.
Ontario, Is very well known to the
stock breeders of Canada The present owner of Maple Shade hOH fallen
heir to many of tbe qualities which
gave his father sn large an Influence
in bis own province, and although as
yet a comparatively young man, has
acquired a knowledge 'if the stockman's art, which has already brought
him to the fine amongst Canadian
breeders. Mr. Drydcn's collegiate
and agricultural education has been
such as to bring him Into demand in
a more or less public way, and in
recent years, lie bas been about Canada a good deal iu connection with
judging and other work under the
supervision of the live stock branch
Dr. Dryden's Judgment is practical
and his recognized popularity speaks
well for the Confidence which may be
expected from ins fellow breeders In
bis ability to perform, with credit to
himself and them the work which he
has now undertaken In Combining
the services upon this committee of
a practical sheep man. with thai of
a technical expert, the department
has reason to believe that the problems ..f production and ol marketing,
both as regard*, wool ami mutton
will be studied and discussed in such
close relationship that the results of
the enquiry will most successfully
serve the purpose for which it is undertaken.
After con-.nlt.uion with the live
stock commissioner, the members of
tbe committee bave ol course been allowed the liberty ol depending large-
h upon their own initiative in planning their route and in evolving the
details of their investitations. Tin-
general procedure will, however, be
somewhat u follow*. Mr Hitch preceded Mr. Dryden to Kngland ir. order to attend a number of important
wool fairs in progress during tognst
and September. There he will be in
clii-.'' association with wool nwr-
chants and with men Interested or
engaged in the woollen trade la fall
several branches and will thus be
enabled to discuss witb them in alt
its phases, the various details of the
industry in connection with both
home and foreign markets.
Both members of the committee
an- arranging to be present at the
big late .summer and autumn sheep
sales which are annually held in Uie
tatter part of August, during Sep-
tember and in October They will
visit Smitbneld and tbe larger meat
markets of London and of other important cities. It is possible alio
that they will be present at the an-
naul ram sales at Kelso and at one
or two other Ipading centres. Thi*.
will bring them into intimate touch
with sheep breeders, mutton raisers,
dealers, butcher*, and provision men
in all the important localities. It
will give them an insight into conditions and methods as thev prevail on
the (arms throughout the country. It
will dinet their attention to the
systems ol marketing in operation in
every stage of the business. It will
furnish them with information concerning prices, profits and as to the
extent, and nature of the
trade, and In short, give them a
knowledge of the great sheep industry of the United Kingdom and ol
the import trad** in dead mutton
and lamb. It is hoped that the in-
restlgatlons In Oreat Hritain will
put the branch in possession of such
information ami of such tads and
statistics as mav enable it to in-
telligently assist in building up a
great Canadian business in the rais-
lng of sheep ami also In finding a
place (or the Canadian produr'.s of

Returning to Canada, the investigators will visit all the provinces and

manufacturers in order to familiarize
themselves     with   the   diihcuities.
drawbacks and drfects in connection
with conditions as they now- prevail
and which htve hitherto operated to
retard the advancement of the sheep
industrv in the country. It is ex*
pirifd that they will gatlu r information as to the injury Inflirted on our
agriculture through tho decline of
interest in sheep raising, that tbey
will lake nolo of the localities where
the growing of sheep could be mosl
easily and profitably encountered and
tbat, bringing to hear ihe suggestions gleaned from their general enquiry upon the various phases of the
situation as they lind it in Canada,
they will draft recommendations for
the guidance of ihe commissioner in
framing, in the very near future, such
a policy as will prove in the best interests of ihe Industry
If time permits, Mr. Rltch and Mr.
Dryden will also visit the Lolled
States li,     many      states of the
l'nion as compared with Canada almost uniform conditions prevail, particularly as regards the advantages
that are possible and which may be
derived from an extensive sheep
trade. Mail} single States own more
-sheep than are found in the whole of
the Dominion aud although to the
south of the line there m.i*, w some
discouraging features in the general
situation, nevertheless there may he
much iu the way of suggestion to be
learned from that country further,
trade relationships between the two
countries must alwavs he more or
less intimate and as the United
states, notwithstanding a severe
duty, imports annually irom Canada
a good I) quantity of wool, it would
seem to be of direct advantage to
have some specific informal ion cun-
cernlng the status of th- irade In
the former country and also as t,.
its availability as a future market.
Canada has. undoubtedly, wonderful
possibilities and large opportunities
in connection wnh the development
ol its sheep population The present
invrsticaiinns have beer, undertaken
as preliminary to the adoption of a
permanent scheme for ihe encouragement and upbuilding of the industry.
In the b-Hief that Canadian agriculture must of neevs-Mty suffer severely
while -beep remain so few in number
in the country, the minister and his
officers will not lie satisfied until
statistics show a return of at least
ten times tbe present estimate and
until sheep raising has established itself as a recognized factor in promoting tlie national prosperity.
Dr. William Edgar Qcll, the American traveller who has crossed China
live times, has just completed a visit
to all the capitals of the Celestial
empire in order to study the new
political movement
With tlie exception of the interpreters, chair bearers and other servants, the doctor travelled alone. Ue
has made the following statement for
•One ol tbe things that remain uppermost m my mind is the general
spirit of revolution which I met
with Hy this I do not mean an
antidynasiu or antifomgn feeling so
much as what I would call an 'anti-
baby' movement.
■■Particularly among the scholars
and thinking men the opinion prevails
tbat China is passing through a
critral period ol her history, and
there is a feeling of resentment that
a baby should tie on the throne at
such a juncture.
"I did not find a display of antagonism to the regent, but these
Chinese thinkers hold that China can
never bl properly modernized under
an infant ruler. They referred to
th*- fact that all china's troubles iu
modern tinv-s have occurred during
the rt-ign of the last three emporers,
all of whom were children.
"Klsewhere I find an antidynastic
movement Yet I saw do reason for
revolution in China, t^uite the contrary, it seems to rne that tbe government is doing all that is possible.
Even to me, who know China well,
the changes are nothing short ol
■*l have attended sittlncs of various
provincial parliament -., I have visited schools, and other modern institutions all through China and am
surprised at the reality of the desire
to   bring China     up-to-date In
Kwangsi. the gr.-at copper renter of
China, I found ,t larp school being
erected and a widespread desire on
the part of the t.iung men to take
tlie full modern curriculum "
Kcfernnt to the spread of militarism in China, Doctor Cell says:
•Throughout China the tonstant
militarv preparations have lieen a
source of wonder to me. Wherever I
went I saw evidence of a general
plan foe tin- preparation of an enormous army. Not only in the provincial capitals, but in the smaller
towns, drilling is in constant progress."

The following resolution embodies

There is much alarm iu the Vale of
Uelvoir, near Melton Mowbray, over
an outbreak ol spotted fever (ccre-
bro-spinal meningitis) six villages
-Lung ibiwsun. Hose, Nether
Brougbton, Ilarby, Melton Mowbray
and Aslifordby—arc affected, and sev-
etal deaths have already taken place.
In the last named village tbe
twelve-year-old son of Colonel Vate,
who contested the division in the
i nionlst cause at the last general
election, died on Wednesday rrom the
iin August i.i the lasl induced his
lather to take him to the Hose
(lower show, and seven days later—
ihe customary period of incubation—
the disease manifested itself. Specialists and nurses were speedily sum-
moned, fluid was withdrawn from the
spinal column, nnd antitoxin injected,
hul all in vain, ll is regarded as
certain by tlie medical specialists
and Hie medical officer of health for
'he district lhat lhe infection was
caught at Hose. There are now" seven eases in Ashfurdhv.   t
Ail the patients have been isolated
in Iheir own homes, which will he
disinfected Immediately Ibe suiTerers
are convalescent.
Tlie cause oi lhe outbreak is not
Known for certain, but sine of llie Infected houses is that of a dealer who
recently purchased a quantity of
second-hand clothing, and it Is deemed likely that tbat may be the origin.
Coincident with tbe outbreak in
North Leicestershire there are three
cases under treatment in Nottingham
Corporation hospital, Two patients
are now out of danger, but la      the
third case the illness i liniis-s in a
virtilenl form.
Prompt measures have lieen taken
by ibe authorities to prevent the
spread of tbe disease, uf which there
was au alarming experience iu Nottingham three years ago.
Spotted lever is, happily, very rare
in this country, but extensive outbreaks occur from time to time.
Three years ago tho disease assumed
epidemic form in Ireland and Scot
land, resulting in over two hundred
deaths Two or thru- eases occurred
iii London.
The disease has been describes!    a
un.- nf Uie most terrible known      t
ineslicnl seiense.     H is by no means
m-w, and, despite the name, "spots'
are conspicuous by their absence, bul
there is a rash.  That the illness
due    to a   living organism or germ
was   deinonstrnUil    by au operation
performed on a lad two years ago by
Ur forth, the house physician of the
West London hospital, when ssnne  of
Ibe   actual   germs   which cause the
fever   were found In the fluid drawn
from the spinal column.
The disease i.s more common in
(iermanv and the I'nited Stat-es than
in England. The attack Is generally
very sudden- In severe cases tlie sufferer is generally laid low with shivering and headache. Drowsins-ss may
then follstw, and rapidly easl in
death. Occasionally', however, Hie
victim falls Into a kind sif trance,
Which has Iteen known to he mistaken

has the following:

now* possible to Iill in some uf the
details and to give an idea of tho

The striking change and enlargement of the plans' adopted tot this
year's Pageant of Kmpire, cancelled
owing to King Edward's death, is
indicated, to bs'giu witli, hy the government's decision to give the
scheme official patronage. The prime
minister, lhe foreign secretary, the
colonial secretary, tbe present and
Coming Viceroys <>r India, tlie governors general of Canada, and Australia, the governors of New Zealand
and Newfoundland, the high commissioner of .South Africa, and 'Mr. Balfour, the leader of the opposition—
whu, if he held that post in Canada,
would be an officially recogui/.ed and
salaried member of Ihe eonsliiiil
nl hierarchy-—have accepted offices us
vice-presidents. The colonial governments which had promised, and iu
some cases bad actually sent, exhibits for "courts" in Uie palace itself
are now to erect ambitious buildings
of (heir own; aud a great effort will
be made to endow the exhibits within with an interest too rare sin such
occasions. 'I'lu*     high   terrace   in
trout of the palace will be greatly
embellished, ami will carry a pavilion, or imperial club building, where

center of the grounds they will see
an embodiment of Newfoundland, possibly a copy of the Colonial building
at St. Johns. A little further tn

rich in mineral deposits and its climate suitable for successful tillage
of the ground. This branch ot the
Canadian Pacific winds through the
valley of lhe Kootenay and passes
Ihrsiiigh the Selkirks along tbe
course of the Moyie nud Goat rivers
The agricultural and fruit possibilities ol this territory are only beginning to be realized. For dairying
purposes, with its plentiful supply of
water and possible heavy crops of
forage, it is peculiarly adapted The
market for the products of the soil
and Tor dairy and poultry farms is
one of the best in the world. A
short review nf the resources of the
valley will demonstrate it.
Since the construction of the railway the mining industry along its
lines bus become of great importance. Tbe Consolidated properties
including the St. Kugene mine al
Movie, the third largest silver lead
mine in the world, and the Sullivan
mine on Mark creek north of Cranbrook, have become famously proiii-
uhle. Other mines in the vicinity of
Moyie are hemg developed including
the Aurora group and the Society
Oirl. Ou cither side of the valley in
both tbs> Uocky and the Selkirk
lunges are valuable prospects iu
silver hast, gidd und copper mines
(lint will lis* quickly developed when
ndditlonnl railway facilities nre given. Kor several years there has been
u prospect of a railway called tbe
Kootenay Central which would have
a natural valley roadway for inn
miles along the Kootenny and Co
lumhln rivers The Canadian Pacific
has recently taken over lhe project
and contracts havo Iktii let lor the
construction of the first thirty mites
Irom the Crows Nest branch nortb
to Kort Steele. The new road will
materially stimulate development
throughout tlm valley. There are
many successful placer mines along
ttie Movie river and its tributaries,
also on Perry Creek, a tributary  of
St. Mary's river. In the Rockies,
the principal placer mining is on
Wild Horse creek and Hull river.
More than eight million dollars in
gold have been taken from these
placer mines and they are slill iu active operation. At Hull river llm
mining company has a power plant
Which will supply power and light
to various points in the valley iu
connection with iis operations in hydraulic mining. A spur of the Canadian Pacific railway runs from Cranhrook north 22 miles to Kimberley,
the mining camp for the Sullivan
and North Slur groups. II is reported with apparent authority that
a smeller will soon be erected at
Kimherley. Tlnyopper prospects of
the Pyramid ami Dominion groups
arc so far advanced in development
as to shortly place them among the
mines along the St. Mary's river.
Important results nre promised in
the development of thu graphite
mines on Matthew creek near Kimberley. To show the reckless abandon ol nature in this wonderful valley, a mountain of Ilrsi grade hematite Iron ore stands ready lor development iu the Itockies near Hull
river, while uenr it is a mountain
of lime stone and another of marl.
With such available products on a
gigantic scab', it is easy to lie seen
the impetus that will he given to the
valls'v when their development liegins. A great many promising prospects arc being held in atieyanco until better service is furnished them.
Suffice il to say that almost every
mountain unit creek on either side
of tlie valley is highly mineralized
and will one day he ihe center of
great development.
Along the river many mills are
busily at work cutting tbe pine, fir,
spruce, larch ami cedar that cover
the foothills and the valleys. It Is
estimated Ihal there are paid in
wages in the Cranhrook and Fernle
districts SI,000,000 a month. The
important question nsiw is to feed
this great army of workmen and to
provide a future supply for a greatly
Increased number, which there will
surs'ty be when development is further advanced, it is estimated that
lliere are 500,000 acres In the valley
that are capable ol cultivation. At
the present time very little of it is
so utilized. Those who have ranches
are men who are in the business sd
stock-raising in a small way, or who
believe that land in the future will
be valuable and arc holding it undeveloped for sucb benefits. At this
time n greater portion of their supply of vegetables is lieing shipped in
from Washington, Idaho and Montana. The few Who cure to practice
gardening are enabled to realize remarkable prices for Iheir product. A

Iu this beautiful valley there Is
conslslerable laml tbat is without
trees, and lies favorably for fanning or ranching. The center of this
agricultural tract, as It is also of
the district under consideration, is
tin* city of Cranbrook. This whole
country bus been developed within
lhe Inst ten years. Hy common
consent tlie center sd the community
bas lieen indicated in ibat city. It
has a population of 4,000 people and
is building ou a scale with what is
believed to lie commensurate with
its future importance. Delightful
roads extend iu every direction up
uud down the valley, wliich will
prove a great convenience to farmers
wheu tile community is settled. Laud
iu the vicinity wili be sold iu small
tracts to be cultivated intensively
on account of its limitations, aud
will be irrigated to make sure of a
full crop. Apples, pears, plums and
small fruits of all kinds grow very
successfully both in the hills and valleys. Heady-made orchards arc being
planted, which will be turned over to
the purchaser when they come Into
bearing, being developed by private
companies, and ready-made (arms fs>r
agricultural ami gardening purposes
are being developed hy tbe Canadian
Pacific railway.
Prices of land are as yet very mod
est. Tbe soil is alluvial, containing
great ■uuant.iic.i of gravel aud iu
many places limestone rock. It is a
sandy loam, which iu some portions
sd lhe valley has a clay subsoil. The
stones and gravel contribute lime
properties, aud are in sufficient quantity to afford proper aeration to the
soil. The foothills are to a degree
sub-irrigated and are quite productive without irrigation. Successful
orchards arc growing both in the
foothills and in tlie valley. Then* is
an abundance of water lor irrigation
and power purposes contributed hy
the two mountain ranges.
Tbe future capital of this great
empire of resources, Cranbrook, is already assuming tbe importance of a
leading city. It is the divisional
point of tbe Crowi Nest branch of
the Canadian Pacific railway. It has
important provincial government
buildings. It has just erected one
of tbe finest public school buildings
in Hritish Columbia. It has fine
hotels, is up-to-date with Its public
utilities, has good waler, One electric lighting, competent tire department, substantial banks housed in
brick and stone building*., a large
hospital with an ellicient staff, and
roomy buildings for public recreation
Its mercantile houses carry all lines
Ui supply the wants of tbe many and
varied conditions of the community-
Planing mills finish rough lumbei
provishil by the mills iu the vicinity
ot the city. The very low priced
power which may be furnished Miami
faclurers should make it a desirable
polnt for tint location of allied Indus
tries. Any kind sd an industry that
provides supplies for a community ol
working men and furmers would lind
it a profitable Arid. A hrlckyanl
