it is possible lo use a certain amount
id odd lengths, hut ii was claimed
Ihal Western Canada generally could
nol handle them, and this meant n
loss to Ihe retailer. The retail as-
social iou .ippi'.tr. to have made two
propositions to thc mills. The first
was that tbey should only bt* asked

ing ground for the surplus output
ol American saw mills," and the
despatch went on to Matt* that    this
was to lie affected by an arrangement
which had been entered Into between the association of manufacturers at the coast and in tlte interior
of British Columbia, and the retail
dealers of tlu- three prairie provinces, under which tin- latter, In consideration nf a cut ot *J per thousand feet in prices, reducing lhe cost
of lumber delivered in U'lniiipc: to
I'.!! fiti per thousand, hnd agreed    nol
to take advantage ol the low prices
of American lumber, arising from
over-production from time to time,
hut would deal exclusively with the
Hritish Columbia mills.
The despatch immediately alarmed
tlw.* farmers ol Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, who [eared that
the eflect of tin* alleged CORlblne
would he to raise retail prices, and
the subject was taken up vlgoroUsh
in tbe western press from this standpoint. A few dnys later, Alan M
Stewart, secretary of the Western
Retail Lumbermen's association m an
interview with the Free Press denied that any- such arrangement bad
ever been entered Into, and stnted
that while members of the retail association were desirous ol dealing
with Canadian mills that they would
continue to buy in the cheapest
market, and thnt the cut in prices
at the const still left tin* American
lumber cheaper by *2 SO per thou
sand than the Hritish Columbia Ium
ber of tlie same class
Enquiries made from n number nt
sources among the    various Interest
assert chat such an arrangement I
been entered into.    The retail
on the   other hand,    while assert ill)
that no such arrangement has   teci
reached, claim that they bave grlci
anccs against  the mills in  the   mat
ter oi   the   latter    trying l" '""

complain     tbat    tht.    bave to face
competition with mail order    1 sei
deriving Ihelr supply Irom \merlcan
sources. The mail order bouses con
tradlcl this, and slate lhat while
to oblige some of (heir patrons m
the country they may have tilled ol
dcrs from American lumber. thai
they have now an arrangement witb
Hritish Columbia mills to handle
this trade for them. The builders
and contractors, again, do not Hunt
that prices of llritisb Columbia Ium
ber were exorbitant prior to the re
ductlon ol y> per thousand, but claim
lhat thc Height rates which amounl
lo (12 per thousand ought to be re
dUCed and these are the real obstacles
to cheaper lumbei.
Tbe opinion* of a number nt re
taiicr*. were obtained. Vccording to
tin* statements made, the preient
K-t.ui   Lumbei   Healers' assoclainu
comprises about On per cent o| (he
retail trade m Manitoba and Ras
katchewan, Alberta not being Includ

At that time charges were mad
against tbe association thai it wni
a combine to fix prices, but ll i
claimed by the members (hat whlh
some attempt was formerly made lo
agree upon uniform prices, thai the
association now confines Its energies
to providing tor the insurances of
its members' stocks, ami questions of
Height rates, and haulage facilities,
which il is claimed an* not mily properly    Within    the scope id such     .in
organization, but uhimuH-lT must
item-fit the consumer. With regard
to the relations of the retail nssocln
lion with the two associations re
prosentlng the mills ot the coast and
tin- Interior, li is emphatically den
led thai am agreement to exclude
American lumlier bus been pttlernl
lulu    on the contrary, It is claim-!
hul Dial until lately they had to
pav IJ.'t SO lor Canadian lumber of a
grade which could be obtained from
\merlcan sources at $!.*. Tliey also
urge that one reason why they did
not want to handle American lumber vvas because the source of supply
was not constant, the American pro-
dud only    living available at        the
er pines when tla-re was a   glut
the market south of tlie line, and
thai anything beyond ordinary flooring and siding is not admitted free.
Anolher statement made was that
ihey had had orders refused by tht
llrlllsh Columbia mats which had to

western Canadian mills would insist
upon accepting such orders only il

The representatives of the British
Columbia mills do not agree in their
statements. Some ol the older
mills will not admit the truth of
iln' Vancouver despatch, and maintain lhat tf such an agreement was
made it could not last for auy
length of time. Hn the other band
some oi the largest milling interests
stout Iv adhere to the stat-rment thnt

With regard to the dispute as to
ciiiting odd lengths tliey state that
owing to ihe knots and other defects
in Hritish Columbia logs tbat It Is
often necessary to sacrifice a loot
from a hoard of evvn length, and the
demand of the retailers that tbey
should sacrifice nn additional foot
of sound board merely to bring it
hack to an even length involves too
gicat a loss to the mills. As lo the

refusal of tin: prairie retailers to
dandle the odd lengths is a mere
matter of prejudice anil that single
doors an- never used in the.-*1 days,
while with double floors it does not
matter about mid lengths. They
claimed that tin- retailers were actually selling odd lengths now but
refused to place orders at thc coast
unless tiny were eliminated or reduced.
Tlie British Columbia mill representatives frankly stated that ihey
did not want American competition,
and would 1 ke to see a duty on
American lumber, as they urge that
peiisalc them for the additional cost
more for lumlier than if the home
mills: could operate in a uniform man-
m-r. They say thc American mills
only compete when they have a surplus lu dump ou the local market.
The retailers take advantage «I the
temporary lower prices and the British Columbia mills have to reduce
lheir output, or in some cases to
close As Boon as the glut in tin-
American market is cleaned up prices
list* there, or there is no lumber to
be had ou thai side. The home mil's
having reduced their output cannol
iiu-i-t Ihe demand immediately, and
they claim that this means that
prices go up to a figure, which more
than offsets the temporary low prices
caused hy dumping.
The mill owners stated that the rt
tollers' cry of having to meet mail
order competition did not amount to
anything Lumber could not he sold
in car lots for cash, and all attempts
in this direction had been on a small
scale, and did not interfere to any
extent wilh tbe ordinary retail trade.
As against this, the representative
of a large mail order house who was
interviewed, admitted that a certain
amount cf business was being done in
car toad lots. It was, however, only
done to ..Mine homesteaders and other customers whom they were supplying witb nt ber goods. Tbe business was only taken up last January
and tbey bought through a local
bouse. It was possible that some
American lumber bad lieen sold, as
they batl not troubled about tbe
source when getting the order filled.
They now had an arrangement, however, with a British Columbia mill
to keep a stock for them and to fill
their orders.
A prominent- member of the Builders' Kxchange contended that the
price of British Columbia lumber
was not unreasonable, and maintained that it was worth more to builders by 11.00 to $1.50 ist thousand.
He claimed that the home mills put
up a better style of lumber, and filled
orders more promptly, tbe American
mills only making a convenience of
the Western Canadian markrt when
they  were ..vii stocked
Asked as to Hie charge of the farmers that lumber was ton high, and as
to Hie retailers' statements tbat
this was due to the price charged by
Hn* Canadian mills, this gentleman
said thai tlie blame for prices l,.y
with the railwav companies. He
claimed lint the British Columbia
mills only got $11 Fr thousand nut
•f 123, out uf which they had to
pay stumpnge tax, labor, etc., and
pay interest on their costly mills, nn
up-to-date plant entailing an expenditure of   irom  SiTiO.utH) to faon.oon.
Labor had advanced 'la to lb per
cent., horses cost double the price
they did, bay wns dear, and, in (net
$11 per thousand was not going to
give a large margin ot profit. On the
other hand be stated railway rates
at $12 per thousand were exorbitant,
and ought tu be reduced. lie did
not believe in the alleged agreement,
saying any man with Hie price could
always buy in the cheapest market,
but complained of a combine among
the retail dealers to charge thc
smaller builders and contractors who
placed orders under 50,000 feet, n
price of from %'\ to $1 more per
thousand than thc Inrger contractors
paid lie thought the spread in
price too gnat.
Soma enquiries were also made
amongst the railway companies when
it was learned thai enijulrips bml
been made with n view lo establish
hig yards of their own. It was impossible to gel any very definite information on this point, l>cyoml a
statement that owing to the complaints of the price of lumlier al
certain points in the country that llic
situation was being looked into, with
a view to providing wholesome competition in the interests of settlers.

Tho (k'lith las taken plaoo at Swan-
sen of Mrs. Jane Boyle, in hur one
Imiitlreil anil lirst year. She bailetl
frnm Cornwall, and was supposed to
In- iho oliies! Inhabitant of South
Wales. She retained her faculties almost up to tho iinl, ami wns able lo
sew. She was a regular smoker lo
within a tew days of lier death. Her
lius'banil ilii-,1 seventeen years ago.
The death took place recently at
Unas, near Meanly, of Mary Gordon,
one of the acknowledged oldest, if indeed nol tlie nlilest woman, In the
Scottish Highlands. She was HW
veins of age, and until she reached
the ago ol ninety she had never lieen
ill for it day, aud was engaged in
outside farm labor. Sin- was in possession of nil her faculties until a
few weeks before her death, but for
Homo years bad been reculvlug parochial relief from the parish of Kil-
morack, ami the proprietor of Aigas,
upon whose estate she lived, bad (or
the past few years been paying a
nurse' to look after her.
Interesting figures have been compiled by Mr. R. l\ Moncrloff, an anti-
tobacco statistician, who resides nt
N'ewcastle-on-Tyiic. connecting the
amount sin-nt by tho average Briton
mi "the weed" in its various forms
und the appliances, such as pipes,
which minister to the smoking habit.
Mr. Moncriel declares lhat the average family of four and a half persons
(that is merely the census approximation) spends .1,2 15s. 2U\. a year,
or just over a shilling a week on tobacco. He adds the statement that
each family spends C1G IBs. fi-Jd. a
vear on drink, and declares that the
combined expenditure represents 23.0
per cent of wages earned. The total
sum spent on tobacco, pipes, matches
and sundries is reckoned at £2f*.R*-6,-
The board of agriculture and fisheries has issued a prelim nary statement showing the estimated total
produce and yield per acre of the
corn, pulse, and hay crops iu Great
Britain in 1010. The estimated
yield of wheat this year, 7t0t..,9O-1
quarters, is nearly 2\ bushels per
acre less than in UWfl. The total
production of wheat, while less than
last year by about 600,000 quarters,
is above the ten years' average,
mainly in consequence of an increase
nf acreage in recent years. Itarley is
slightly above an average yield in
(■rent Britain, but it is less than in
1900 by three bushels per acre. Tlte
total is 7,275,101 quarters. Oats
are the most satisfactory of the corn
erops with a total of 15,184,241
quarters, a yield per acre of over one
bushel above average. The hay crop,
both from arable and meadow land, is
above the average by nearly 2ewt,
Iter acre in the one case and ljewt
in the other.
To celebrate tbe approaching centenary of the birth of Charles Dickens it was recently proposed that a
Dickens testimonial stamp should be
printed and sold for a penny through
booksellers everywhere during the
next year. If even a fraction of tbe
owners of the 21,000,01)0 copies of
the author's works extant bought and
affixed one of these to each volume
they possess the total sum receive**!
would be considerable, and this sum
ihe Dickens Fellowship would hand
over to the n*prcsentalives of the
family as a world-wide tribute to
llie memory ot the great novelist
The project has met wieh much support, and the testimonial committee
under whose auspices the stamp will
lc issued comprises many of the
chief names in literature, statecraft
art, and commerce. Tlw stamp itself will be produced at little more
than tlte actual cost of the materials
by Messrs. lUphael Tuek and Sons,
and will be distributed by the originators of the scheme without rbst.

To Attend the Formal Opening of Our
And Grand   Reception  In  Commemoration  of  Our Fourth
Anniversary, flonday   Evening, December Nineteenth
at  Twenty  O'clock.
We will be pleased to have every citizen of Cranbrook and surrounding district
attend and heip us make this one of the Big; Events of the Season. Please
do not stay away because you may not be a customer of ours: we are
all friends anyway and we will be disappointed if you don't come.
The attendance at the opening of this big store four years ago was
amazing: we want this to surpass all previous efforts. We have gone to
great expense in remodeling the store and we believe, now more than
ever, that it is one of the finest in the West. In the alterations we have
not forgotten the comforts of the Ladies, we have provided for them a
rest room where they can meet their friends, write a letter, read a
magazine or rest. We have secured Stephen's Orchestra for the occasion
and other music will also be provided. We will endeavor to make it
pleasant for you. Come, see the new store, hear the musical programme
and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and cake for which this Store has a most
enviable reputation. Our full staff will be on hand to show you through
the big building and explain the many conveniences of a modern up-to-
date store. No goods will be sold after eighteen o'clock on above date.
We want you to enjoy the evening and every one connected with   the store
will be at your service.
Monday Evening, December Nineteenth at 20k.

lliere has always heer, a constanl
stream ol emigrants Irom Scotland
to Canada, and, in particular to
Hritish Columbia and N'o.a Scotia.
The Maritime Provinces, cast ami
west, have always had a particulai
attraction for Scotsmen, probably,
to mention one reason alone, because
thc couatry in both casts is not
unlike T-V Northern Kingdom in
baracter, although Its scenery is uf
in even grander character, and tbe
soil is more productive and rictier in
natural wealth. 13-e that as it may,
the fact remains that Scottish Immigrants an arriving in Canadd in
greater numbers every year. This
:«cl has be*-r. vety strongly emphasized i-j Mr. Malcolm Hclntyre, tbe
Pominion government emigration
agent in tlie soothers half of Scotland, during his visit "out West."
He has pointed out that last year
no fe*»er than 14,700 emigrated from
the "Land o'    Cakes,*1 and That 30,-
000 is golte a conservative estimate
fur this year's total.
Mr. Mclntyre states ti.at of late he
has received a large number of in-
qulrles with rt-gard to agricultural,
business and i&vesimcnt opportunities in Western Canada, and especial-
lu Vancouver Island and Hritish Columbia While as Pominion agent ie
naturally rec-ive:-, inquiries regarding
all psrts of Canada, yet the major It}

knowledge regarding tlie Far West.
To go to Canada, and Western Canada in particular, is tt.* ambition,
Ih- stat»-s, of those living in thc agricultural districts oi Scotland. An
enormous Increase Is tin* emigration

looked forward to with tbe greatest

going out this year, he sav», are all
uf *\ better class compared with
those going out in previous years
Th«* principal reason for tMs is t.'.ai
those with rmoru 10 lose bave been
ihary of riskimr themselves iu a
country which they only know ol
thr-iugh hearsav. Now, however,
those who have already established
themselvvi and have risen from a
state of comparative penun '■ ■ eta
nl prosperity, have written home to
Iriends and relatives, reportlnf I
good fortune and making known the
possibilities and opportunities ol tbe
country. These letters are the cau-*e
of the enormously Increased ajsmand
for information about tbis particular
pari *-f the empire and tfae rapidlv
rising tide ol Scottish Immigration
there. i
Hearing this in mind. Mt. Mclntyre
during his visit to Canada, has been
busily enc>igpd in leathering Informs-
tlon from those who went out last
yeai ood in previous years. The
experiences of tl.pse, almost without,
exception, have been most gratifying
to all concerned, and, unrfoubtrdly,
should satisfy tho.se still in Scotland

Canada's Naval Policy
The prolonged discussion nt Ottawa
on the address in reply to the speech
from the throne, mainly devoted to
lhe naval problem, has terminated
and the government's policy has been
sustained iu the most deli tii te manlier Whilst this outcome Is satisfactory, still the tone of the debates
and of the press comment there
anent must have given rise to keen
wonderment und no little anxiety to
those who feel that* il is Canada's
duly   to do her part  iu relieving the
uither counlry of the cost of protecting her overseas dominions. The
most striking feature of the parliamentary uud press discussions has
lieen the exposure of lhe Tory nttl-
i' mi this all-important question.
We lind lhat the Tory members of
parliament have completely changed
iheir former altitude on the stlbjcot,
•Ir. Iiorden, thu Tory leader, has
liuiiiulated  an     entirely  new  policy,
iiiirely nt    variance wilh bis earlier
Iterances on thu subject, everyone ol

Sam Hughes voted in lavor ol elie
Monk  "(lo-tlOtiling"  policy.      Itui      il
is when we itirst to the Conservative press lhat we nml the most
Mlrlklng evidence of what, iu view of
then past declarations ol ultra-loyalty, cim only he described as ult-
nolutcly jinti-Hritish sentiments. Koi
The Hidgetowu "Dominion," edited
hy a Conservative member ol the
Ontario legislature, Mr. P. Howycr.
discusses the naval question, in purl,
us follows:
••Firmly believing that it is Ihe
U-st fnr Canada to continue its con-
 tion   with    the     mother country,
and lhat il should hear a fair shun
in thc defence of the empire or which
il forms a part, the Dominion has
favored and still favors u direct annual contribution lo Great Britain
iu preference to a Canadian navy ol
any kind. While this is our pos lion
mi the navy question, we must honestly admit, thut having made
searching inquiry among the people ol
ihs section we bud that only a smal
minority agree with us, The great
majority nre not only opposed to a
Canadian navy on the Lnurier plan,
hul are nit*) opposed to building
Dreadnoughts or giving money. They
in- ipiite content that the present relations continue, but are opposed to
lolitg anything. This attitude, while
in our opinion regrettable, nevertheless is that of the scores of men,
embracing all shades ol political opinion, with whom we.have discussed
the ipieslIon. A gentleman who
travels constantly in Elgin, uud
another who knows West Kent well,
iinib Conservatives, report t«» us tlmt
ihey have found few men favorable
to a Canadian navy, tlie great majority opposed to do unythlng In
view ol ihis attitude nf the Kngllsli-
spenklng people of this section ol
country, we see nothing surprising In
Llie resull id the voting in Drum
miiiid and Artbnbaska. Then- two
Liberal sought election. The only
issue discussed was- 'navy or n<*
navy,' and the Liberal who declared
against a navy won out. Wc arc
satisfied that the same verdict
would have boon given under tbe
same circumstances by almost any
rural Ontario constituency. Let two
Conservatives nr two Liberals contest a rural constituency in ihis
province, make the navy the sole
issue, and tbe no-navy man will
win "
Another Conservative paper. the
Kingston Snandard, says:
"If the question ol a navy were
submitted t» the p eoplc ol Canada
loday it would be overwhelmingly
voted down, and that as Arthitbaska-
Dnil ml spoke so would all Canada speak."
Ii i bard in credit such utterances
coming Irom Conservative quarters1,
and so lur as wo can Judge ihey certainly tl '  represent the views "f
the average Conservative in Ihe
Wesi. Premier McBride, rccognlswd
iis the Moses ol the Tory parly,
certainly is on record iu t»r different
language. He has given wholehearted support to the Laurier naval policy, and the chief Conservative
paper In this province, the Colonist,
has been equally outspoken In support ni thai policy it is dimcull
in grasp jasi where the Conservative
parly are al on this naval question.
Presiimahy the eastern Times' bleu
is to stand fnr anything thai will
strengthen Ihelr cause in Quebec and
embarrass the Laurier administration, regardless in that sn doing
ihey must inevitably incur the hostility ut their western confreres. In
fact the western Tory must I* hard
pressed these days to know just
where he is ut. Ilowvv-er, happily
tor Canada, Sir Willrid Laurier's
policy in this connection has tha
wholehearted support ol a large majority in parliament ami those ol us
who believe that it is* the bounden
duty of Canada to do iter part in
the maintenance ol the empire, can
afiord to take a kindly view ol our
western Tory Iriends' present discomfiture, confident that In the long
run their undoubted patriotism will
either recall tlieir eastern colleagues
to their senses or range them up behind the banners of the Liberal
chieftain, notwithstanding tlo* charge
