The oity council held its last regu-
t.ir meeting 'ni Monday evening und
transacted a vast amount of business.
Tti<' present council has made "<)od

ratepayer and when he is getting

The present council is made up ol
mtii who have large interests in the
town and naturally they are anxious

be carried on in a manner ihat will

A md it is no sinecure io hold the
position of mayor and alderman in a
growing city like Cranhrook. To
transact the business of this city
il takes business judgment and business experience. The ratepayers of
the city have made a mistake tho
past year in not attending at least
some oi the. meetings uf the council.
If they bad tbey would know Uut the
aldermen have transacted tlte business
of llu* city the same as a board of
directors look after the interests of
the corporation or company that they
represent. Hills are caret ally scanned, suggestions arc made as to

the idea that Cranbrook prosperity is
ihe main point and the individual interests of the aldermen is entirely
lost sifiht of. It is work ol this
i.i ml that must appeal tu the smin I
business .judgment of every ratepayer
in the citv no matter whether he
agrees witb evory policy of thc
council or not. The fact that the
council lias done everything in
iheir power to safeguard the interests
■ •f the ratepayer is sufficient reason
for the confidence placed in the council bv the people of this citv. The
Herald (cols eonfid-ent that the great
majority of the people nf Cranbrook.
those who are influenced hv the "ood
of the city and tha conserving of
their nwn interests, who are not actuated hr any leelin« of prejudice ot
"crsnnal animosity, feel thankful
that thoro is a possibility of having
th.- same mayor and aldermen remain for another vear, and they also
must realize that Ihis would mean
a big sacrifice on the part ot each
one of them. The re-election of
Mavor Fink and Aldermen Rvnn
Baker, Hunt, Jackson, Henderson and
•lohnson means more for the future
prosperity of Crunbrook than most
nf us can realize at this time. We
all "ant a progressive Cranbrouk, a
growth that will mean au individual
prosperity to all of us and such a
management of the public affairs ol
ihe city that will insure a progress
thnt will be safe, sane uud sound.
That is why the Herald favors the reelection of   the present council.
The story is told, with how much
truth, however, we don't know, that
one of the teachers in thc Cianbrook
school was endeavoring to impress
upon a class nf children thc magnitude of China- "Don't vou know."
she said "that there nre so man'
Chinamen that everv time vnu draw
a hriMth two Chinamen die''" At
ihis stage little Tomtnv hewn to
breathe verv quickly. "Wli.it are you
dolii" Tommy'' "4asked the teacher.
"I  trying to kill    all the Chinamen
1 can, my daddy hates them "
The review issue of the Nelson
Da-ilv News, whi'h was published last
Sundav, is a 82-page paper, which is
a credit to the management, to Nelson and to the Kootenays. Tbe illustrations are good and the letter
press is of the most Interesting and
Instructive character.
We have heen going over nur subscription list the past week and And
(|uite a number who are owing us
from $2 to $10. As we have a list
amounting to over lflOA, it can be
easily seen that the delinquent
subscriptions amount to several thousand dollars. Statements have been
sent to most of our subscribers and a
number of them havo been -kind
enough to respond, hut there are
.manv of them who havo tailed to do
' so. ' What is the hest thing to do
with those who refuse to pay is a
question in onr mind and we have
about decided to make out a list
of those who owe us money fnr thc
Herald and print the same. This
should he a reminder and perhaps by
doing this w#> can get what is
due us on subscriptions. It wo decide to do this we will print the
list Home Him nfiit month, as we
need the m«ney. |

Following is .ludee Wilsons liniment In Iho case ol tho Kinu ugalnst
Dean, tlu- president ol the Olobe
Insurance companv. wlio was tried
at Fernie a lew days ago:
i'ei tain objections have been raised
lo tho form ol chaw in this matter.
1 reserved my judgment on that
poinl. as at the time 1 was
certainly in doubt, in the lace ol the
decision ol Hex. vs. Rice, 12 Cos C.
C, I think, however, that in view
ui form lil, niven in the code, under
section 852, that the charge is properly-drawn, I.e., in popular language,
siililcient to civo tho accused notice
ol the oltenec witb which he ls
On the facts 1 have had some doubt
as to what occurred at the various
interviews the accused had with tho
witnesses called. 1 think that the
evidence ol thc witness, Lockhart, on
ihis point is really a lair criterion
„i what occurred, and I must say
his evidence impressed me as that ol
a man who was eitrcmely lair, while
I do not wish in any way to cast
any reflection on the evidence ol any
„f the witnesses lor the prosecution
1 think some slight mistake has
crept into the evidence in their
statement ol what actually did occur.
The accused, Irom all the evidence,
was undoubtedly trylnR to sell stock
in bis company, not to write insurance, and, that being the case, 1
can hardly see why ho should have
none beyond the terms ol his treaty
with the Temple company. His
statement ol the evidence in this respect strikes me as being lalt,
and, while I would not find that tho
witnesses called understood it in that
light, still 1 think that is what
was in   the mind ol   tho accused.
This bciiiR my view the accused
must be acquitted.

Montreal, Dee. 31.-It was stated
today by people In close touch with
Uiu whiter carnival scheme that there
would be no ice palace this winter,
ihis being dropped in deference to the
opposition ot the railroads and others interested in immigration. Those
In charge ol tho work „l preparation
lor thc carnival admitted that the
dropping ol t-he lee palace was bein
considered but, would not state that
it had been absolutely dro'u t
Should the ice palace be abandoned
and a comprehensive series ol winter

Votes Polled  in Former Mayoralty Elections
We aro informed, and believe our information is correct,
that in iOOfl the total number of voters was 14,188. The
Mayor was elected hy acclamation, and about 3,000 votes
were cast for civic officers; that fn 1907 the total number of
voters was tt,!i!'2, and the total number ot votes was
3,SOO;        lhat       the total     number        of       persons
eligible to vote in the IflOO mayoralty election in
Vancouver is estimated at 16,(100, and that in no mayoralty election in Vancouver has 5,000 votes been cast.
Why This Offer is Made
This extraordinary otter is made because of our desire
to compile a mailing list of all the homes without instruments in Hritish Columbia and Alberta. We believe we can
secure thc information desired more quickly and more
economically than we could by spending twice the sum by
using solicitors and canvassers.
The fairness of this offer at once appeals to the public
from the fact that the Mason & Risch product has been
sold for a number of years exclusively upon a uniform or
fixed price plan, all instruments being marked in plain
figures, which arc conclusive as to price. Therefore, to alt
winners of Credit Certificates there is absolute assurance
of a bona fide reduction ot the amount ot thc Credit Certificate on any New Piano you may select.
In case of a tie, the value of the prize in question will
be awarded on neatness and legibility of answer. All
answers must be written plainly, giving the name and address, also stating whether you have an organ, square or
upright piano, giving name and maker. For convenience
sake you may fill out thc blank below, or, at vour option,
use other paper. Remember, every person sending in an estimate has equal prospects ot getting a prize, regardless of
when the estimate is sent in, provided it reaches us before
the close of thc contest, January 13th, 1909.
It is conditional upon sending in your estimate that you
agree to abide by thc decision of the iUilgca, who ah dis
interested parties, and whose decisions will lie final.
Those who receive Credit Certificates can apply them on
tlte purchase priee of any New Mason & Risch, Henry Herbert, Newcombc, Dominion, Classic or Harmonic Plnno In
out Vancouver warerooms aud up-countrv agencies, bul can-
no', applv them on anv purchase made prior lo the close

A man who has been in and out
ol jail since 1892t and is so troublesome to the prison authorities that
they receive him into th"ir care
with Considerable dread, was at the
London Clerkenwell Sessions a week
or two ago sentencod to three and a
half years' penal servitude. His
name is Albert Max Martin, a
French-Canadian, and he was convicted ot obtaining food and lodging
by false pretences. Accused bad potted as secretary to a "Baron Lieht-
erfel," a bogus nobleman. The prosecution said he had had "a most extraordinary career." Detective
Steel said Martin was only at liberty a fortnight when be committed the
present drauds, and he was arrested
as he lett prison atter serving a week
in jail for being drunk. According
to tbe prisoner's own .statements, lie
was educated in Germany, Italy,
Switzerland and England, Ho was at
Eton, Harrow, and also at thc
Universities o! Oxford, Cambridge,
Bonn, Heidelberg,' Konigsberg, Berlin,
Geneva, Bologna and Koine. He
claims to have studied as a doctor,,
and to have had five medals given
him for bravery during the Franco-
German war, 1870, and three during'
the Bulgarian-Turko war. Accused [
said he was aide-de-camp, pi Ivato
secretary, and interpreter—he says he
speaks twelve languages—to Matshal
MacMahon and Marshal Hnzaine.
Thirty years ago hu had a beautiful
hotel at Lucerne, Switzerland, and
through lamily complications loht a
fortune of £30,000.

she saw tbe man lying on the floor
apparently dead. The police were
called in, and found tbat not only
was the man dead, but his wile and
child were lying on tbe bed each
.sbot. through the bead Numerous
papers, including twver.il letters sipi-
t-d "H. P. Wakley," were found, (tne
of these indicated that the writer
was about to commit the tragic deed.
: Wakley had formerly been an insp-c-
tor of the Ourmab police, and he
was invalided to England owing 1m a
[breakdown in health.
:   A peculiar case was investigated by
-the   Middlesbrough  coroner recently.
The subject of the inquest  was Thos
Warrior, a laborer,    who was   found
dead in a      wuod   yard with $
mund     his   neck.        The rope
broken, and   above him was another
piece of rope attached to an non pin
.in top of a ■ wagon.        Death    was
due to a   blow- received     in   a fall,
probably by    the   breaking  of    the
rope.     There were no symptoms
suffocation.      In the     man's   pocket
was found   the following note; "Have

♦' icesslul claimant for tho Greek
4 i throne In 1863, and in connection
with that claim she has had many
adventures. Born in Malta, thr
Princess married an EngHshinan,
Colonel Edmund Wlckham. Sbe has
four sons, and it is suggested that
if the Princess does not become
Queen of Samos one of h:'i sous shall
reign in her stead. "1 am a direct
descendant of Constantino the
Great," said the Princess to an interviewer, "and many Greeks regard
me as the one who is referred to in
the old prophecy, that some one
shall arise to bring power and prosperity to Greece again. "1 have hail
my pedigree and descent carefully
tabulated hy many authorities, including tbe Chancery of Malta." At
the top of the document appears the
name of Leone Catacalone Ambusto,
and tbe first date shown is tbat ol
the marriage of his granilson in
A dispute between husband anil wife
Concerning money savings was heard
before Judge Smith at West Brom-
wich county court recently. Mrs.
Jane Hooper asked for a declaration
that she was entitled to a sum deposited in the post office savings
bank in her husband's name. It was
stated that they hail lieen married
for thirty-four years, and had had
twenty children, of whom twelve
were living. Out of the money
which she had earned during nineteen
years, added to by presents made to
her by her children, Mrs. Hooper
had managed to accumulate --ll.)
which she loept in nn old muft in a
drawer. One morning she found thc
muff was empty. Her lnishand told
her to come with him to lhe savings
bank, where he deposited £40 in her
name, and sbe found he lud previously placed -fcfiO to his own credit.
He then handed her £4 10s., saying
that he hud spent the remaining ]fts.
The wife, in her evidence, said that
none of the money had been given to
her by her husband, who had never
provided sufficient money to maintain the household. The judge declined to make any order as to the
£50, as he considered ihat the £'■)">
was the joint property of husband
and wife, and that the man had
made a fair division.
Elizabeth Lisle, Mlddlesliorcnigh,
who, a short time ago was eonvicttd
of causing bodily harm to her husband, and was sentenced to twelve
months' bard labor, committed suicide in Durham jail recently. She appealed against her sentence, but   the
ppfeal was rejected. On the following S'inday she was all right at dinner time, and alter dinner was seen
to be writing on a slate in her cell,
but later she was found by a
wardress banging dead from the
ventilator of ner cell, She had
fastened two handkerchiefs to the
ventilator, and had stood upon a
stool, which she had tilted over, and
had thus bunged herself. On a slate
she had written these letters, one to
her husband, another to her daught-
lAid a third to bur brother.
Tke letter to her husband was written in a tone of bitter complaint
that she was bearing her trouble unjustly, and   at the close she    said:
II I had to bear tt were you not
man enough to try nnd soften it a
little for me? You know I have
not deserved it, and, oh' tbe bitterness of It all. I hope you will
never be called upon to suHcr as
you have made me suffer. When you
look at me will you kiss mc? I
think I shall know if you do, antl it
will make me happier. Goodbye."—
A painful sensation was caused at
Brighton, the other day, when it was
discovered that a young wife and her
child had heen shot dead, apparently
by the husband, who subsequently
committed suicide, Tbe tragedy
took place at a hoarding house in
Westbourne street, Hove, where a
Mr. H. P. Wa'iley and his wife and
child occupied rooms, During thc
night Mrs. Boniface, tho ladylady,
heard a thud. She called out, but
got no answer, and thought no more
of the matter. On the following
morning, as there were no signs of
the Wakltys, Mrs. Boniface knocked at
the bedroom    door, and finding    tbe
Harold Harvey and Walter Walsh,
young sons of well-known tradespeople in Stalybridge, were recently
charged with attempting to obtain
money by threatening letters from
two married women named Ellen
Knowles and Sarah Kcnyon. The
complainants were startled on oach
receiving a letter stating that unless
a sum of money was forthcoming
1 tbey, as a terrible band of Anarchists, would select one of their
children as their prey." One of the
letters stated that three children in
the Castle Hall district of the
ImroiiHi had been chosen, and as a result mothers and children in the
neighborhood had been panic-stricken.
Prisoners have iK>en attending, an
evening continuation school, and exorcise book paper upon which the letters were written proved their undoing, a police detective tracing the
missives as having heen torn from an
exercise book which the prisoners
used. They were cautioned and discharged.
Five hoy adventurers appeared at
Birmingham police court recently,
charged with breaking ui n number
of houses at Har bor no, Their abode,
said thc police, was a cave wliich
they had constructed at Florida, a
lonely district near Ilarhorne goli
links. Investigations showed the
cave to he partly a natural declivity
and partly an ingeniously constructed
hut, formod of interlaced boughs.
Orass and soil laid on thi; top form a
perfectly rainproof roof. This Is
supported by stout baulks of timbei
The walls and floor of the hut hav
been carefully lined with straw. When
discovered by the police the
"cave" was found to contain parts of
llie spoil. A revolver was found on
one of the defendants when arrested,
and it appears that it was used to
threaten people who wandered near
thc hiding place.
A young gentleman, named Robert
Allen Griffith, of Chester, was charged and remanded at Liverpool recently with wounding Cecil Parker,
a friend and partner in business, with
whom be was staying at a Liverpool
hotel. It was stated that on the
night in question the two were in
their bedroom, Parker being in bod.
(iriilitb had in his baud a miniature
rifle which he had bought for a
friend, and be jocularly remarked to
Parker, "Shall I have a pot at you?"
Parker replied, "Ves, if you like,"
and Griffith put a cartridge into the
rule and fired, the bullet going right
through Parker's thigh. Parker was
laken to the infirmary, where be will
he confined for some time. Griffith s

A strange case of theft has been
soived and the culprit arrtsted by
tin. Glasgow police. On December
20 ot last year a house factor in
Glasgow received a telegram purporting to be from a relative in Bel-
last, asking hiui to telegraph £5 ty
lh3 general post office in that city
Tho factor, suspecting nothing, at
i.ncc forwarded the money as requested. Two days later the Bel-
last gentleman paid a visit to Glasgow, and, of course, called upon the
factor friend. The latter naturally
askid him if he hid received his £5
all r-^ht, whereupon th' Belfast man
disclaimed all knowledge of tbe affair. The matter was then reported
to the police, and Detective M'Gimp-
took the case in hand The
original telegram was photographed,
and ultimately suspicion fell upon a
young man who, however, after inquiry, was found to have absconded.
Tbe'otlier night Detective M'Gimpsey
was walking along Steven street,
when he observed- a "wanted" man
and arrested him. He was brought
before Baillie Archibald Campbell at

^nrs and a lock-up.
It. will be remembered that at the
time the bylaw was passed in 19HU.
for the raising of money to pay for
the city's interest in the joint f-nv-
ernnu-nt and municipal buildiiizs, the
government ollice had but recently
been moved Iron, Fort Steele to
Cranbrook, and the i-overnnicnt ollicials occupied the small luiildim*;
uhich is now- part of the public
school. At lhat time it was *, very
mu, h debated question whether or
not the government would establish
nnd erect government buildings and a
court house in Cranbrook, and it was
fell by tho council that somo oltorl
.lioultl be made to induce lhc government lo make ti,is the central
judicial quarters for Fast kootenay.
henee a proposal was made to the
fovertinient to build a joint government anil municipal buildintrs, to cost
each partv $7,.100.00. Alter tho
huildin-s were erected, it was found
that the total cost „1 the build-
in: was approximately $23,000.00,
w hereupon applications were made,
from time to time, to the "overn-
inent, who made a total crant ap-
liroxlmatlng $15,500.00 and hv this
: means, the covernnient buildings anil
|a court house were permanently lo.
,-ated in Cranbrook.
I Since the erection of thc build-
1 itiits, it has been found that tho government officials rwiuire more room,
nor was thc. arrangement satisiac-
;torv to the city council and ofli-
iclals. it was further found that
I tho cilv would almost immediately
I have to erect a lockup, and tho city
I officials were informed that a lease
would be ,n*antcd, provided thc city
would make alterations in the build.
ine and compensate Mr. F. R. Morris, whose bouse is erected on the
iocliun lands. This, it was found,
would cost the city in the neiuhhor-
h,„*il „l J15UU.0U. These considerations moved tlie council to once
more approach the p-overnincnt with
an offer to sell the interest ol the
city in the joint buildings, to the
irnvernmrnt for the price they had
Paid Inr them, namely, $7,SOO.OO,
whioh the government acceded to,
subject, of curse, t„ the approval ot
the ratepayers, and to the approval ol
the bondholders. The consent of the
bondholders was obtained, provided,
that thc moneys realized from the
sale, were placed in buildings ot a
similar character. Tho present prop-
osilion. therelore, of the council, ns
detailed In the proposed bylaw, is,
to sell to the province, the Interest
ot tbe citv in Ibe joint buildings lor
the sum ol J7.5ini.lin nnil lo use thc
inonevs realized from the sale id the
purchase of lots and the erection ol
small hul adequate premises to he
used as a cilv ball and a lockup.
Th- citizens are n*,t asked to expend one cent in thc erection ol
these buildings, but merely to sanction ihe sale of the city's Interest
in thc joint government und municipal buildings, and thc use ot the
moneys so obtained in erecting
municipal buildings.
We understand that the council have
not determined on what lots thc
buildings arc to be erected, but that
thev will endeavor lo secure lots on
Haker street at a cost ol $21011.00 or
$2500.00 and that thc balance will

We would lurther „oint otll lo the
ratepayers, that should this bylaw n„t he passed. It wnuld mean
that ,10 bvlaw lur a similar purpose
could be put   belore   the people   lor
one year, and that the government
would not be bound to renew their
oiler of purchase, and this would
mean that within a very short
time, the citv would not onlv have
lo conduct their business in premises
to whioh thev have no title and
which are unfitted for citv buildings
but would also have to erect a suitable lock-up at a large expense.

Dauphin, Man., Dec. 31.—A. W.
Sutherland, 31 years of age, and a
member of t-he law firm of Harvey He
Sutherland here, was lound dead
in his room shortly alter noon todav with a bullet wound through
lhc roof of the mouth, and which
entered the brain, causing instant
death. The revolver was lound beside the dead man and Irom all
appearances the case was one ol
deliberate suicide. The deceased was
a married man and came here Irom
Winnipeg about seven months ago*
The motive lor the desperate act is
A. W. Sutherland served several
vears with some ot the best known
law firms in Winnipeg, aad is very
well known there. He pasted his
final examinations about two years
ago. He spent several months with
Messrs. Munson, Allan, Laird & Davis,
afterwards going with McDonald,
I laggart, Sullivan & Tarr, and before
leaving lor Dauphin was witb
Messrs. Metcalfe ft Sharpe.

,, general store at Selkirk.
Thc circumstances surrounding the
death of Arthur W. Sutherland are
particularly sad. He bad spent the
Christmas holidays at his home in
Winnipeg und on his return on Tuesdav he showed signs ol not being
in the best ot health. He told bis
partner. Mr. Harvey, that he was
afraid he could not make a success
of law and Intended returning to the
teaching prolession, stating that he
had an oiler of a position in British
Columhia. Mr. Harvey, who evid-
cnily had a high opinion ol Mr.
Sutherland's ability, attempted to
djssude him Irom this step, telling
him that he had better give thu
law a little longer trial, nnd he then
would be ill a better position to decide.
This the deceased decided to do, but
bv Wednesday noon again changod
his mind and wired to British Columbia stating lhat It the position
was still open he would accept It.
He attended to his duties on ffed-
ni-sdav as usual and that was tho
last seen     ol   him until today    at

Tlie city election today proved to
be one of the most interesting contests that hns taken place in Cranbrook since the incorporation of the
city. J. p. Pink, who has served as>
mayor for the past year, was returned by acclamation. It was gcnera-Hy
supposed that the old council woulil
be returned by large majorities, but
the results demonstrated the fact that
a misunderstanding prevailing among
lhe people regarding the school bylaw turned many votes against the
members of the old council that
would otherwise have been for them.
In consequence of this fact, although
the old council was returned, in some
cases it was by a narrow margin
Again the personal popularity of
John Kennedy and thc opposition to
one or more members ot the old
council, based upon personal reasons
or relations arising from public nets
that, aroused the personal animosity
of individuals, resulted in a certain cross-firing in the vote that
naturally reduced tho total of the
vote cast for the old members and
increased the vote cast for thc opposition ticket. Another thing that
carried weight in the election was
the fact that those names on the
ticket to oppose the old council were
men well known in the city and
each one enjoying the Confidence of
the people. The fight was a strong
one and a good natured one, and so
far as the Herald knows, there was
not a bitter remark or an unkind
word indulged in by parties on
either aide throughout thc entire
day. It fs now over for another
year and the Herald is confident that
thff mayor and council, will do all
in th:ir power to advance tbe very
hrst Interests of the community.
They have done that for the past
twelve months and there 1s no reason to    believe but   that they    will
ontinue the same policv for the
coming year. The Herald'said previous to the election that the re-election of Mayor Fink and Councilmen
Ryan, Hater. Henderson, Hunt, Johnson   and    Jack-con   would prove    a
nod thing for Cranbrook, and it
based ihis prediction upon the record
ile hv those (,-entlemrn during the
past year. The people of Cranbrook
taking the same stand in their
view of ibis matter that the Herald
did. We are all citi7.ens of Cranlirook. we arc all interested in the
progress of the town. We may not
iicree as to poller, but after the contest is over the Herald believes that
'.he peonlc who supported both tickets will unite for the coming year
in living their support to the mayor
and the council so long as they are
doing what is right and best for the

distinct shocks were felt, travelling
from east to west. Buildings were

shock was felt In Vancouver, more

The supreme importance of .it once
lartiug a scientific system of fores-
try is being urged by Charles F.
Lindmark, says tbe Victoria Daily
Colonist, and was one of tlie chief
topics discussed at thc conference
Lhe other day between tbe lumber-
mill and the premier and chief com*
missioner of lands and works. Mr.
Lindmark is a large timber holder,
iiui incidentally mayor ol Revelstoke.
n.l has also made a study of forestry. Sweden is tbo cradle of
scientific care of forests, and in his
i outh Mr. Lindmark went through
ilie Swedish school of forestry, while
last year he made a special visit to
Iiu rope to study tho methods now
followed by Sweden and Germany
ilie latter country having adopted
Set-tlish methods with characteristic
thoroughness uud conspicuous success.
It is nuw many years slnco Sweden realized that bar forests were
a great national asset, and she is
conserving them to such purpose that
ihe supplv of Umber is increasing
annually m that country notwithstanding the immense aniuunt which
is cut each year. This is entirely
lue lo thu intelligent svstem which
Uio Swedish government has introduced oi compulsory realtorestation- Formerly young saplings were planted
and the government kept up immense
nursery farms for the propagation of
ihu plants, but advancing knowledge
shows that this is no longer necessary, and thc trees are now grown
from seed which is first tested by the
government experts.
Discussing thc Swedish methods and
Hie adaptations of It which be would
like to sec introduced into British
Columbia, Mr. Lindmark said:
"In Sweden the forests arc survey-
id off in blocks, and the right to cut
the timber on these blocks is auc-
tioned otl. The successful bidder has
lo cut the timher within a specified
time, and when he has cut ofi the
mud, he is obliged to re-forest it.
this is a cheap and .simple matter,
and is done by sowing seed which
is supplied by thu government. The
administration also supplies an expert
lo superintend the operation so all
the logger has to do is to find the
.abor. As a matter of fact the
sowing in Sweden is largely done by
.school children. Tbey arc taught
forestry in tho schools and in holi-
dviys some of thc poorer ones do very
tvell at it. But even in British Columbia H would not*1 cost more than
.■.mo a section.
"Tho Swedish forests largelv belong to the government, but private
owners arc also obliged to re-
afforest, in the same way as tbe loggers on the public domain. Tbe
government, too, is buying up large
ireas of waste and logged-off lands
tnd planting them, with tbe result
hai the forest area of Sweden is
ncreasing, Formerly they planted
/.t.'lings from the government nursery farms, but now seed is used.
it merely adds a year or two to the
.ime one has to wait for the trees
Lo become merchantable timber.
rrees will grow well from seed in
!:is r . it- "vcrc tht soil is
.inch more fertile than in Sweden.
1 have been experimenting with some
seed I got from the Dominion government and my fir plants are doing
civ well indeed.
"The consenation of thc timber resources of British Columbia is a
more vital and ' pressing subject, I
think, than many men seem to real-
.ze. The time to begin is now. In
l small way much can be done toward perpetuating our forest resour-
and incidental^ diminishing th:'
danger from forest fires, but, of
course, In iw ■ 'stlons, vou must
remember tbat I am now talhinp
niv of those lands which are not
uitabie for anything else but timber,

-Nowadays a great deal of timber
s being butchered. Tbe Hcense-boid-
■r cuts every stick he can sell oil his
land, when in the long run it woulu
be much better to leave tbe sraal
stufi and une only tbe merchantable
timber. My sui'-estion is that every
license-holder be compelled every fall
to burn the slashings of the season
before, and tlie following spring to
sow the land so as to bring on a
new crop of timber. He should then
pa allowed lo retain bis license at a
nominal fee of, say S3 or tl a square
mile, while the   young trees grow,
"The government should supply the
seed free of cyst, and there should
ne Inspeoton to see that It is proper-
Iv done, und also tbat tbe land ti
uul) good for timber and not suitable for agriculturable purposes. This
Mould hau- tho result not only of
perpetuating thu supply of timber in
ihe country, but would also go a long
way towards removing the danger
uom forest fires, which so froquenOj
start from old slashing;*) allowed to
Jc on the ground until they are as
dry as tinder. Our soil in this
roiince is such tbat all that would
be necessary would be to scratch the
soil and deposit tbe seed. Machines
arc used for this which enables tlie
mowing to be done very "Ulckly.
"Another point I might mention is
that the year after thc pile ot
.-dashing arc burned weeds will spring
ap, and these protect tbe tender
shoots of the young trees, and later
on, when the trees get larger tbe
ivecds die ofi. This seems to be a
irovision of nature for the protection
of the sprouting seedlings. In this
way, too, we could control the kind
f timber to some extent. For instance, in mv part of the country,
llu timber near tbe Columbia river
is 80 per cent cedar. By sowing we
cuiijd redress the balance, so as to
et a proper percentage of fir, which
is probably all round a more useful
"It seems to me that the Domin-
r», —d Provincial governments
should combine and start a school of
forestry, as they      both
hive      large timber        hold
ings in the province. In this wav
ihe lumbermen of the nrovince could
"el a scientific as well as practical
Irainin"        If   such   a school were
foremen and scalers, and the nfnejt
months' course would be of vast bene- I
lif to them, as well as to us, and
Incidentally to the entire province.
For jt must not be forgotten lh.it
ur timber is one ol the greatest
roviacial assets.
'There is one other no'ut. ;od that
i that the conservation of *-ur for-
-•.'.s is necessary from a cHmatic
■ tint of view. When the sides of
Ihu mountains are denuded of their
timber, the amount ol precipitation
will run short, and our rivers will be
torrents in the safipg and dry In the
summer and autumn.
■ It seems to meHiat this is essentially a matter (oojfavernment supes-
vision. It is ti,o jtuch to expect
the loiavr to go to.tbe trouble and
expense unless he is u-bli-ed to. Ho
naturally wants rtojtoake what be

■tot amie.il so much to liim - In tb ■
connection it must he remember t
Uiat it takes from 10 lo CO
according to locality, for tho seed to
