suddenly. On Saturday and Sunday,
preceding ihe day ol his demise,
Momlaj, January 32nd, Mr. Fred
Hon was out from Klko, visit inn his
faintly at lloosville. Tho youngster
was then, apparently in the best nl
health. When tbe little lad retired
lo rest on Sunday night he was.
sn [ar as could be observed, in perfect health. On Monday morning he
complained of feeling unwell and asked to be allowed to stay homo from
sehool. Later in the day, just as
Mr. Roo was about to start hack
to Elko, his wife advised bim that
the youngster was reaHy quite sick,
and asked him to delay his return.
Mr. Hon thereupon decided to remain and, afler examining his little
son, sent ofl a special messenger for
a doctor. Before the doctor could
arrive, the little lad had breathed
his last. The awful suddenness ol
the blow prostrated Mr. and Mrs.
Roo, who have the sincere sympathy
ol a w We circle nf friends and acquaint am cs In their bricavrurat.
ant business was discussed.
Vero Hunt occupied the chair,
absence of President Hrytnner.
After minutes of previous meeting
had been adopted, Mr. CccK, on lie-
half of the special commit/tee, reported re park sites. Ho stated
that- the Townsite company declined
to put a price on block 10U, that
property not being on tlio market.
For block Mil, some twenty-eight
acres altogether, lhe price asked is
$500 per acre.
In ilie discussion tliat followed
Ihis report, it was questioned if
block 101 would nice! requirements,
owing to its location. Finally tho
secretary was Instructed to communicate with Mr. -I. S. Dennis, with a
view to securing the company's consent to sell block 100; also to secure beat price ami lerms upon block
■Secretary Benedict then reported
tbat tbe special committee charged
with the work of preparing and publishing the pamphlet, had awarded a
contrail for tlw printing of the
same lo a Toronto firm, at a price
of $775.
In reply lo several questions from
members, he slated thai local firms
had tendered nn the job, but that
their figures were largely iu excess it
tht Toronto figures. As tlie contract had luen awarded and the
work sent forward there was
course open to the meeting but tn
accept Mr. Benedict's report.
In response to correspondence Irom
llie Canadian Highways association
the following resolution was unutii-
raously adopted:
"Whereas, roads ami highways are
great factors in tlw development and
protection of our forcatl ami mines,
and means of Improving transportation alt through the country. Therefore, let it In* resolved, ihat wt
think it highl] desirable that a Ca
nadiaii national highway should be
built from the Atlantic to the
Pacific, also recommend to ihe
provincial government, that they
should co-operate with the Dominion
government, Increasing their sui-sidics
for the colonization roods, ami rnu-
nccHng up alreadj existing highways
ami express the opinion that the
counties, ami municipalities ol the
Dominion should encourage more efficiency in lhe construction of roads
within thei) limits."
The following lommunlcallon was
next disposed of.

Four hundred and fifty men, neatly
fly per cent of tin* male residents in
the Creston district, joined with
thirty of the most prominent business men of Northern Idaho last
Tuesday evening in joint mass meeting to make formal demand upon the
government that attention he paid to
the vast acreage ol lowlands m tho
valley, which are now subject to
yearly overflow and which if reclaimed would make this section tin*
most fertile ol all British Columbia,
says the CTcston Review It was a
notable gathering, the largest ever
held in Creston, either political or
otherwise. The Interest was Intense,
It marked a new epoch in the history

Whereas   then*    arc approximately

Whereas tlie acreage cinsists of

Whereas we have reason to bellevo

Whereas we believe that tlu- said

with no little alarm. A complexity
of conhitions existing in llu* dlffcrcn
agricultural sections oi Canada hai
meant a serious reduction in the pro
duet ion tf meat, while lhe rapid increase in population ha_ led to
greater consumption. The outlook i*-
tor still greater Increases iu popula-
sioi, and therefore iu consumption, be
asserts, ami unless some action is
taken at once, for a still greater falling oh in production. A country
with the agricultural possibilities
and the abundance nr tillable area
which Canada has, now laces tin
problem ol how i< provide meal for
her scanty population. M would appear, therefore, thai tin- situation li
indeed serious.
"Until recently it appeared as if
Canada would always have an abundant supply ol live slock of all kinds,
not only foi her own use, but for export as   well, said    Hi.      [{ntheilnrd
"Iu fact, ii seemed ihat tin* principal
difficulty with whieh those engaged in
the live stock business wi uld have to
contend would in* that of linding profitable markets tor au ever Increasing
and practically limitless surplus.
"Circumstances have, however,
brought about u very great, anil to
my mind, serious change in the live
stock outlook. Although many ol
the new corners in Western Canada
are on the laml ami are, therefore,
in a sense agriculturists, the conditions aie such that hut few ol ihem
are devoting any greal attention to
animal hushumlry and past experience Indicates that soma considerable
time is likely to elapse before they
are compelled, by the gradual exhaustion ot the soil, in turn to mixed
farming ami the systematic production ol commercial live slock. For
some time, therefore, the majority of
these people    will themselves be con*
producers     ot
Burners   rather than
meat. ________________
"The continued augmentation ol
our urban population, which I believe is due to the extraordinary industrial ami commercial nctivitv,
stimulated by the rapid development
ol the west as well as by the general progress nf the ci iintry, has also largely Increased tho consuming,
as compared with the producing public. Then, also, the tastes nml
habits of the people have Changed
wilh the times, and all this general
prosperity has brought about n higher standard of living, resulting In n
greater per capita consumption ol
meat anil 1 he common meat food
"It Is certainly somewhat remark-
able," he wenl on, "thai in view   of
these conditions ihe general production of livestock instead of showing
the dlutlnol advance which might
reasonably   have been expected,     np
pear. Not only is this the case, he
s,.id, bul imports it meat arc inereas-
tl ing from day to day from the United
Stales, the- Argentine Republic and
Uie Antipodean countries. For a
number of years back mutton from
Australia and New Zealand bas been
competing in the llritish Columbia
markets with that from Washington
and Oregon, an occasional carload lieing shipped as far east as Alberta.
Muring the past winter, however,
fro/en mill tun as well as frozen rabbits have turn landed at our Atlantic
a aports and sold U, Canadian consumers in Toronto and Montreal.
"Recently," said he, "there has
sprung up au import trade in American .sheep ami lambs and very considerable shipments have been math-
from HufTulo and Chicago to Toronto
and Hamilton."
Dr. Rutherford spoke enthusiastically of the report ot Messrs. Dryden
and Hitch, the two commissioners
who have looked into the slurp-raising industry of Canada, and lately
submitted their report.
"Hut something more than literature, no matter how practical, is re-
i|iiinil," said lie. "I fet-l satisfied
ihat an energetic, demonstrative
campaign, conducted oa well considered lines ami supported by liberal Unsocial assistance, would effect an
Immense amount of good in bringing I
many farmers to a realization ol the
infill Innate position into which they
have allowed themselves to drift, by
neglecting the main or lundameiital
principles ol livestock husbandry."
Not only is the livestock situation
in Cauatla serious, but the issues Involved are of such an intricate nature
thai he ami lhe others officially anil,
as he put it, to a degree morally rr-
ponnlblo lor the care and development of Canadian agriculture doubt
md hesitate with respect to remedies
mil the Wisdom tif their application.
The work ot the swine commission*
■is und the sheep commissioners spiralis appointed lo cany on Investigation has resulted iu much good, Dr.
Rutherford believed, and tho
point inent of a couple of commissioners who would enquire into the con-
Uons of the beet-producing Industry
and report upon the same would
prove equally beneficial.
These   commissioners    would
far short of the actual requirements,
whereas under proper conditions, hi1
bilievtil there could he a large surplus for export.
Bui in lhe western provinces, especially the hog-raising branch of the
livestock industry hns never been
taken up wiih anything like the tl
gree of interest or enthusiasm it
warrants, in spite of the fact, that
as Dr. Rutherford believes, it is
oi able marketing facilities, it is undoubtedly one of tlie best paying ad
juncls of the grain farm.

is therefore impossible for me tto accept your offer of re-election by acclamation, ami I further believe that
should Mr. Graham be opposed in

will show by their votes tbat they
believe in an honest agreement iK'ing

Kor bhe second day in succession,
bar silver was quoted in the New
York market this week at r»8J cents
the ounce. This is the highest price
silver has commanded since 1007,
when the average for the year was
65.3. The average prices for the intervening four veals were: 1!»0H,
52.8 cents, 1909, 51.5 mtU;
1911, 53.3 cents. This advance in
the price of silver ,oI approximately
five cents the ounce., is a matter of
great importance to mining men generally. To the mine owner of llie
Slccan district ol Hritish Columbia,
the higher quotation for silver is of
very great importance. The ores ol
tliat country average around inn
ounces of silver to the ton, rangln*
from 70 to K0 ounces in the case of
the Standard mine, up to 250 to
300 ounces in Ihe cases of the
fUmbler-Cariboo ami Reco proper-
tries. The higher -quotation therefore
means an added profit of approximately $5 a ton on the average. The
steady advance in silver of late is
almost entirely due to the increased
demand for bar silver from the far
east. Rupee reserves in India have
so greatly declined in quantity, thai
it has been necessary ol late to
make large shipments of gold coin to
that country. China, besides draining India of silver, has been a heavy
buyer of the while metal in th.1
United States. j

The productive forest area in 1008
on the Grand Duchy of Hesse in
Europe amounted to 182,203 acres.
In general the standing timber is
composed of sixty-nine percent hardwood and thirty-ono per cent coniferous forest. The fir ranks first
among the coniferous species. The
total yield of lumber in 1008 was
4,575,000 cubic feet. Refuse in so
far  as it is not    suitable for lighter
lumber, such as laths or for pulp, is'the lowest in the world,
used for firewood. The expenditures \ dine in Uie death rate was due to
for salaries, forest cultivation and .ihc combined efforts of mine owners,

Ottawa, Jan. 31.—Statistics compiled by the commission of conservation show that, the dealh rate iu
Canadian coal mines is much higher
than in any other civilized country,
lu 1002, the year of tla; Fernie disaster, the dealh late per one hundred
men employed (above and below
ground) reached Ihe maximum of
The average rate for the ten years
preceding 1910, however, was 4.79,
United Slates comes next with an
average for tlie same period of 9.43,
Perhaps tin; worst aspect of the
situation is Ihe fact that the death
rate from coal mine accidents lias
been steadily on the increase in
Canada for a number of years. The
minimum rate of 1.83 was reached In
Iu 1900 the rate was 4.21. During
the same lime there has been a
steady decrease in all leading European countries.
It would, of course, be unreasonable to expect tbat tho loss of life
and property could be entirely done
away witb but experience has shown
that careful investigation of conditions will point the way to tlie
remedying of many abuses.
That the danger in coal mining is
being largely eliminated is shown by
the low constant death rates in Belgium and Great Britain. Coal mine
explosions arc much more frequent in
Canada and tlie United States than
in any of the European countries. The
following example is exceedingly significant: lu 1850 the fatality rate in
Belgian coal mines was as high as
the present Canadian death rate,
while at tbe present time it averages

of this kind is practised, forest fires

on Canadian forcflf reserves would
greatly reduce the lire danger, maintain an adequate lumber supply for

source of revenue to tho government.

Although tin- death rate in metal-

than in tbc coal mines it is much
higher than in any of the European
countries. The death rate in Canada

correspondent1 id tbo magazine, which
sets forth In convincing style tho superiority ni tin- aids in navigation in
itnNsli Columbia waters over those
maintained by the United Slates government in Alaska. This is not the
lirst story which has appeared in
American magazines on the same
subject, but it is one of tbc most
concise nnd Informative cf all. In
part Mr. Hcinl says:
"There could not lie a better way
to show how criminally negligent
Congress has hem in this matter
than to compare the splendid maimer
iu whieli the adjacent waters of British Columbia are lighted witb that in
which those of Alaska are lighted, in
six hundred miles of Hritish Columbia waterways, traversed hy American ships, the federal government
maintained over one hundred lighthouses and lights of the best type,
while, as bas heen remarked fnr all
Alaska, a coast line estimated at
thirty thousand miles, with the
worst weather and storm conditions,
this government provides the utterly
inadequate number of seventy-four.
"If there are any lanterns mi
stumps of trees in British Columbia
tne fact is not published. From tho
British Columbia line, one American
skipper told mc that he had travelled
ten thousand miles in southeastern
Alaskan waters without seeing a
light or hearing a sound from a fog
horn, ll is a fact ihat in tbe seven
hundred miles from Cape Hinehin-
broak, at Ibe entrance to Prince William Sound, to Scotch Cap, Cnimak
Pass, tbere is not a single light and
but one buoy. The course is solid
rook bottomed, the channels narrow
and crooked and whipped by heavy
gales. In .summer sixty per cent of
the days are fuggy* It snows every
day in winter ami spring,
"From I'liimak Pass to Attn, in
the Aleutian Islands, nine hundred
miles in a straight line, the aids to
navigation provided consist of two
buoys in a harbor. Everything with
regard to navigation in that part nf i
the North Pacific is bad. An ex-
perienci-d navigator told me that this I
territory was not even decently
charted, j
•In the comparatively few hundreds of miles of British Columbia
waters there are upwards of fifty fog
