The Speech From the
A Number of Bills  Introduced
and House Now Ready for
Regular Grind.
Victoria, March 7,—Tin' opening of
the first session of tin* eleventh parliament   of   British   Columbia    this
fteruoon was prefaced by the formal
nnouneemen-t from Premier McBride
of liis decision to sit for Victoria
city, and the information lhat complete cabinet const met ion would be
deterred until after the session's
Hon. F. .?. Kulton, meanwhile,
takes upon his shoulders the dual
responsibility of the attorney general-
hip, ami the department of lands and)
works, it not being- deemed expedient to associate the
latter with that of the
finance ministry been use of the constant demands for public works expenditures from all constituencies.
The ire-arrangement of the departments with the possible division of
the lands and works portfolio, Is cited as a probability of the session amt
a further explanation of the delay
in the permanent allotment of cabinet honors.
Preliminary to the sessional open-
ng D. M. F.bcrts, K. C, member-
elect for Saanieh, was chosen as pre-
ilieted, in succession to Mr. Pooley,
to the speakership, the nomination
being made bv   Ellison oi Okanagtvn,
ml seconded by Mm.ro of Ghllliwnck.
both nominators, paying a tribute to
the fitness of the chosen member for
the position, in knowledge of parliamentary law and practice, in long
experience, in dignity and courtesy,
and in a disposition to do even justice to political friends or foe.
The opening ceremony seemed to
derive its vital interest rather from
the epoch making character of the
occasion than for any especial brilliancy of the event   itself,  the pomp
nd circumstances of past days yearly becoming less seriously regarded
by a public learning to look upon its
iflrllament8  as  business directorates
ettng for Ihe people. There was,
however, the usual pngentry nf the
litnrv guard, ihe customary gold
lace, glitter and dank of symbolic
sword as the staff took position in
the chamber to define his honor's
pathway to the throne; nnd all the
iistnmnry flower garden radiance of
feminine ' fashion, despite Ihe lenten
season, and over nil the clear March
sun flooded fn happy augury or, filtering tbroiigii tbe stained glass and
copybook mottoes, traced fantastic
patterns on walls ami floor. But the
general Interest was concentrated not
on the animated and vnrl-cnlored
picture of parliament's opening, but
rather on the changed composition
of the house itself, and the foreshadowed business which, as wisely
or ill-aid vised, is calculated to advance or retard the country's growth
and progress. This was the evident
keynote of the occasion.
The newly chosen statesmen, of
course, claimed prior consideration,
unfamiliar faces being noted and
many familiar figures being missed,
The leader of the opposition was absent through aggravated illness; so
was the whip of the party. Dr. Kin?;,
who is delayed in transit. The president of the council foreswore the
ceremonial day. On the whole the

what to the surprise of many,
Kagleson, of Lillooet, was found iu
his place, although it is quite possible that he may refrain (nun taking any active part iu parliamentary
flairs until all question of his status
Is decided.
Hon. H. E. Young, also had his official seat with his fellow ministers
at the opening, although lie will not
tab* his place in the house deliberations pending formal ratification hy
his constituents on the 12th Instant,
this being the date set for nomination, with the probabilities strong
for u unanimous return. Tlie four
ministers present each wore a distinguishing red rose, the others of the
members sporting pink carnations,
with the single exception of the Socialist leader HawthornthwuHe, who
had demanded and secured a eabluct-
sanctifted rose of red, emblematic in
this instance not of ministerial distinction but of the advanced socialism, with which neither Liberals nor
Conservatives will this session have
Might in common.
His honor's entrance was at 3.at)
p. m. prompt, and the rryitAiiig of the
speech was a ceremony ol nuief duration, the sessional programme covering but a single short printed page,
ns follows:

Victoria, Match 8.—The first working day of tbe session augured well
for businesslike legislation and au
early adjournment, for at the rising
this afternoon not only was the debate on the speech well underway, bun
no fewer than six government measures were formally before the assembly, Of tltese, several arc
of substantial Importance, particularly that providing for a decrease
of taxation iu the estimated total of
$126,000, Another new bill provides
for the collection of a special license
fee of WlM per annum, irom each
travel let for an extra provincial
liquor or cigar house not having a
resident distributing agent within the
province; and still another is for
licensing traders and others outside
of municipalities and the collection of
fees upon a graduated scolo from the
enumerated licenses.
The bill amending the assessment
act provides, as far as the tax on
realty, to amend section j iff the

f I be two sums therefore, us a basis
($137,50), the revenue derived from
license fees alone was $510,000 derived by the government from timber
licenses last  year.
It bas been found impossible to obtain complete statistics of the total
production of lumber in British Columbia, hut bv one authority it has
been estimated at liUO.OOO.OOti feet or
135,000,000     feel more than in 1005.
This estimate In our opinion is too
low. A number of new mills were
completed early in the year, and every mill in the province was prnc-
Lilly glutted with orders for lumber.
The one great drawback to the year's
operations was the scarcity of logs
.mil labor. In other respects con-
lit inlis  were  ideal.
There was no interruption to the
steady advance in the price of logs.
Nearly every increase made was look-
■d upon as representing the top
notch, only tn be followed a few
weeks later hy another rise. Merchantable logs which in the early
spring were worth $7 per thousand,
bad advanced to $11 before the close
of the year. The price of the manufactured stock was likewise increased,
hill not to the full measure warranted hy the remarkable conditions.
The maximum price of rough lumber
was $17 which, considering the cost
of logs, higher wages, and the fact
thai the overage mill employee is n
much less efficient workman than formerly, cannot leave a large margin
of profit.
The shingle Industry also enjoyed a
moderate degree of prosperity, but
lhere were periods when the demand
was not brisk. The average price of
bhingle holts was $1.50, while thp
manufactured product sold in the
spring for Ontario delivery at $3.6(1
for XXXXX 5 to 3 inch, and $3.05
for XXX fi to 2 inch. This price
was twin* advanced, and when tbe
vear closed the quotations were
$3.80 and $3.35 respectively,
Foreign shipments of lumber front
British Columbia show an increase
of approximately 17,000,000 feet over
those of 1005 and 26,000,000 over
I DO*!. Tbe exports to South America and Australia increased nearly
one hundred per cent., while one
shipment was made to Egypt- The
Frnser river sawmills, " formerly
known as the Ross-McLaren mills,
resumed operations during the year,
and are now an important factor in
tho export business. Several other
mills are now being built for the
purpose of engaging in the cargo
trade, which promises in the near
future to show   n   wonderful cxpnn-
(Fernie Free Press.)
The Baker Lumber company
Waldo have completed their line mill
and are now busy erecting their planer. This mill will have a capacity
of at least 70,000 feet per day and is
(conceded by millmen to he one of the
instructed mills iu the country. It was built by Mr. Charles
Kendall, one of the most expert mill-
ghls In the province. The mill
provided with n resaw and a
double cutting hand saw. The mill
has been in operation for the purpose
of cutting lumber for the company's
own works and it gave perfect satisfaction.
The Boss-Saskatoon company is a
new organization formed by tin*
partnership of l». II. Telford, of
Saskatoon, wilh Boss Bros., who
have been operating a mill south of
Klkmoitth tm some time. The new
company have lately itctntlred a large
tract of timber on the west side of
the Kootenay river, nnd they are
now   busy erecting a new mill     at
Waldo, just a mile south of the Baker Lumbei company mill. This new
mill. the frame of which is now
about completed, will haven capacity
ol 511,0110 feet pet day. Jt will be a
double cutting hand saw mill.
The Mclnnes mill, situated at
Klkmouth, has been cutting all winter, this being a dry mill. A break
in the engine shaft this week has
necessitated a cessation of work for
some time.
The Adolph Lumber company nt
Baynes lake have a large stock of
logs ready and the season's cutting
will commence In a couple of weeks.
This is a vcrv complete rotary mill
with n capacity of at least 40,000
feel per day. Il is electric lighted
and has an up-to-date planer in connection. The company's timber lies
between Ihe Ii.Hi and the Kootenay
rivers. The Adolph company will
cut six million feet this year.
In addition there are two new mills
In the Klk-tr.ouih district. Recently
Messrs. Patterson & Wilmot secured
some timber limits at Dorr and having purchased the machinery from
Itoss Bros.' old mill proceeded to
build a mill at Borr. A few days
Mr. Clothier, a lumberman from
Ontario, purchased the property and
is now engaged in continuing the
w-iuk begun by bis predecessors. It
is estimated that the limits contain
about  twenty-five million feet.
Tbe other new- mill is owned by
Messrs. Pugh nnd Livingstone, two
lumhipi'men from Okotoks, Alta. They
have purchased a block of timber
from the C. P, It. and are putting iu
a Waterous mill about 6 miles south
of Klko. This mill will have a
capacity of 25.000 feet per day. They
have been getting out logs during the
winter and the mill will be ready for
operation as soon as the machinery to
These mills will not be cutting to
their lull capacity this rear owing
partly to the fact that their construction work has not permitted of
a full season's logging. Next year
the combined cut should amount to
about forty million feet. The mills
have good railway transportation
over the (i. X, It., spurs running into
most of the yards. At Waldo something li** if town is springing up
though  there is     no townsite. A
I'lf'sbyteriaii missionary has been
stationed there. At Klkmouth a
school has been organized.
There is sufficient timber in the
Knotennv and Elk valleys tributary
in the Klkmouth district to keep the
mills busy for many years and tlie
industry will put into circulation
large amount of money each year.
Fernie is the natural supply point
for this district and slowly but surely this fact is becoming manifest
both to the people of this city and
also to the millmen, who are looking
for the cheapest transportation rates
and the greatest convenience and
promptness in delivery.
Ottawa, March 8.—Hon .lames |
Bryce, British ambassador at Wash- i
ington, will arrive in Ottawa on ;
March 27, to remain a week, lie will
be the guest of Karl Orev during his*
visit and wilt give an address before
tbe Canadian club on April 1.
A large deputation of Ontario and
Quebec druggists waited on the minister of inland revenue to-day, protesting against the feature of the
patent medicine hill Imposing a government tax on all such preparations.
As a result of the representations,
the tax proposal will lie eliminated
from the bill. It is very questionable, in view nf the advanced stage
this- session has reached, whether the
whole measure will not now have lo
lay over until jest session.
Pius Michauil, Costigan's successor
iu the house, was presented to-day
by Sir Wilfrid Laurier, and received
with enthusiast to applause.
The premier announced the death nf
Kdwnnl Cochrane, M. P., of East
Cumberland, and joined with tlie
leader of the opposition in a tribute
to bis memory.
Mr. Bourassa renewed his demand
in the commons that parliament
should probe to the very bottom the
threat made hy Fowler that, if nc-
cusation weie laid at liis door, he
would carry the war into Africa, and
how up the connection of ministers
with   wine, women and graft.        Me
id it was not iu tbe public interest
tbat such language should be used
without the members being called
upon to substantiate or withdraw
their statements.
In substance the insurance report
is now before the house, and there is
occasion fnr further delay. Fowler was not present to-day, but the
premier pointed out that as yet no
hnrgo of any kind was before the
erdict. It was accordingly disbarred by .Indue Woods,
The jury for many hours stood at
fnr conviction and 5 for acquittal,
ami it was only upon the last ballul
that the jurymen stood evenly divided, six for conviction ami six for acquittal. Judge Woods thanked the
jury for their patience and diligence
in service after the foreman declared
positively that it was impossible to
reach a verdict and declared them
discharged. This means that the
case must be tried over again.

"Before you rise, and while we are
devoting a good ileal of at lent ion to
the railway question, there is another phase of it that ought to be taken
up. and that is the large number of
accidents thai are happening to-day
in Canada and all over the continent
of America.
"The matter has become sn serious
that I think it demands the Immediate attention of parliament.
"It seems to me that the great
railway corporations of this country
are devoting too much attention to
the expenses of their systems rather
than to the operation of their systems to the satisfaction of the public.
"I tttlao Hns occasion of calling the
attention of parliament to the matter by reason of another accident
that has occurred to-day very near
this city."
New York, March 11—A new and
remarkable aspect was given to-day
to the coroner's Investigation of the
disastrous wreck on the Harlem division of the New York Central railroad, February 16, when twenty-three
persons lost their lives and more
than too were injured.
President Wm. II. Newman brought
with him all the principal officers of
the company, who were connected in
any way with the construction and
operation of the line where the wreck
Mr. Newman told the coroner he
desired to make clear to the jury
upon whom the responsibility %t the
condition of the track and the opera

responsible, he mentioned himself as

Zam-Buk,, the favorite household

••the doctor" by leading parties en-
Ka-ped in surveying various parts of
the Dominion lands.
Mr. Henry Hall, writing from Fort
William, says: "Having proved how
beneficial Zam-Buk is in cases of
cuts, skin injuries and diseases, I determined to keep a supply handy. Being engaged to go on a survey, I
thought it would be a most useful
thing to take along. I obtained a
supply in Fort William and very well
it was I did sn. 1 may say that
pretty nearly every day it was called
Into requisition by one or other of
the party for cuts, bruises, burns, or
some injury nr other. It is wonderful how quickly Zam-Buk takes the
soreness nut of cuts, hunts, bruises
and Injuries; and nn our survey It
earned golden opinions from all who
had occasion In try it. I have found
it very fine for skin disease, and 1
ean strongly recommend it as a
household balm."
Mr. Lascellcs Scott, nne of the
leading government analysts, says:
"I have nn hcHltntlon in certifying
the entire purity of Zam-Buk, which
in my opinion is evcellently adapted
Tor skin injuries and diseases." Zam'
Buk cures cuts, scalds, hums,
bruises, scalp sores, ringworm, ulcers, abscesses, chapped places,

The first person to whom Christ appeared after the resurrection was a

have come since that first Easter
morning, whenever there was a word
to be spoken for the Master, a tender
service to be performed in His name,
a cup of cold water to be given to
some wayfarer, or a prayer to be offered for some sin-sick soul, woman
has always been the first on the

the Kingdom of Heaven. No long-
faced elder of the church was

On our criticisms of others, let us
remember that we have faults which
our friends have to excuse. How much-
would be left of us it all those who
see inconsistencies in tis should clip
away from our character and reputation? It is an invariable rule that
those who make the roughest work
with the names of others are those
who bave themselves the most imperfections. The larger the beam in
your own eye, the more anxious you
arc about the mote in somebody
else's eye. Instead of going about
town slashing this man's bad temper
and the other man's falsity, and this
woman's hypocrisy ami that one's
indiscretion, go home with the ten
commandments as a monitor and
make out a list of your own derelictions.
If young men wish to succeed in
business, they must not spend their
time and money in simply having a
good time. They must not be discontented wilh the little place in
which they are in because they think
they ate too big for it. The way to
get Into a large place is to outgrow
the one you are in, grow until it is
so small'that it will not hold you
any longer. A man who sits shrunk
up and worthless in a little place,
because he thinks it is not worth
while to grow enough to fill that,
has little prospect of getting into
larger ones, Fill the place that you
are in. Fit yourself for higher usefulness. | To do that you must do
something besides piny, though that
may be innocent in itself.

just what wc said a year ago, which
fits now as well as then. Thus it

At no time in its brief career has it
faltered, but to the surprise of its
most enthusiastic supporters it has
gone ahead throughout the entire
winter, aud now, at the opening of
another year, it has brighter prospects than ever before. And during
the past year, week after week, the
Herald has faithfully chornlcled tbe
events of the place and labored for
the advancement of the town nnd the
best interests of the people. It has
endeavored to be fair and impartial
at all times. No man has been permitted to use its columns for the
injury of his neighbor, and anything
that savored of petty spite or'meanness has never been countenanced.
The publishers have felt that tgey
have a responsibility. Indeed they
have never . failed to discharge that
responsibility for the good ol all according to their best judgment,

Is impossible for railway capital,
railway energy and railway brains to
keep pare with the. marvelous growth
of this new nation that Is attracting
tbe attention ot the civilized world,
and exciting the admiration or every
land where progress is appreciated
and material results thoroughly
understood. In 1896 there were
31,353 miles of railway in operation
in Canada, .ill ol which, except 71
miles, arc laid with steel rails. On
June .101 h last 3,071 miles of railway
were under construction iu the Dominion. To operate this mileage
there were required 3,031 locomotives, 1,380 first-class cars, 710
second class cars and 01,03(1 cattle
and box cars, tbe tola) number of
cars in use uf all kinds was 00,87*1,
of which 01,01,*, were provided with
automatic couplers and BJi.fMfi witb
a:t brakes. The railways carried
37,080,783 passengers and M.Dt.0,718
tons ot freight, and they earned
$1315,333,805, The percentage nf
operating expense to earnings was
slightly over lift per cent. Tbe nol
earnings of tbe railways ate steadily
increasing. The nmotilil of capital
invested in Canadian railways is
tl 332,408, 701, of which the Dominion contributed j; 104,188,581. i he
provinces $43,378,032 and the municipalities $17.1:15,1(14. The number
-»f persons killed by accident on the
railways during the year was 3(11,-of
whom 10 were passengers ■ ■ ■ 130
employees, which is rather a remarkable thing, for more people were
killed by railways, when they were
not travelling, than were while actually upon trains. Only one pas*
-.•eager in 1,740,3(11 was fatally iu-
'ured. That is n fine record as eom-
"ared with the wholesale slaughter

We were might ly pleased In learn
•hat the Alberta government has
recognized the ability of our former
Kirtner in the publication of the
Lethbridge Herald, W. A. Buchanan,
by appointing him provincial librarian. Perhaps there is not a man in
that province more peculiarly fitted
for that position than Mr. Buchanan.
He possesses a find literary mind.
He has excellent judgment coupled
with strong executive ability, and for
i position of that kind in a new
province, he possesses that which in
more valuable than all the rest, the
"know how," the "savey," nnd the
proper appreciation of the conditions. Nature abhors a vacuum.
Well, Mr. Buchanan has no use for
ruts. His eyes are ever on the
mountain top's, not in the valley.
He never would see n dime iu the
dust at his feet, but he would easily
discern a dollar four blocks ahead.
Progress, progress, progress, has always been his slogan. Not to-dny

movement all the time. He made

one of the best known in the province within twelve months, lie has
made friends of every man he met,

most excellent choice for librarian.
The appointment is a great compliment to a man who has lived in that
province only a little more than n
year, and the results of Mr.
Buchanan's woili in the future will
stand as a monument to the good
judgment of tlie Alberta government.

Cranbrook can never be made a
larger and more prosperous city by
I«n cent ideas. All of the towns in
the west are awakening to this fact,
and in consequence they are out
rustling on a big scale. Those are
the towns that will win, and if
Cranbrook wants to keep up her record ns a progressive city, her people
must be up and doing.
The Herald is in possession of information that thousands of dollars
were ready for Investment in the
water works and electric light business of this city if the people had
seen fit to pass thi1 by-law presented
at the last municipal election. A
large dam ■ would have been put in
on the    St. Marys river, the   works
would have been vastly enlarged,
electricity for manufacturing purposes would have been available at
prices that would have warranted the
establishment of such institutions,
and increased prosperity would have
been noticeable on every hand. There
were small property owners who voted against the by-law, who would
have made money by the increase in
tin* value of their property. The
way tn make a town -.'row is to go
out after big things. There are
plenty of big things in store for
Cranhrook, hut they won't, come here
if the people propose to erect a wall
around the town to keep them out.
Suppose some people tin make money
mil of an increased plant. Thai is

Hern Id's water, electric light and
telephone bills are pretty large, but
we know that they would have been
fnr less if that by-law had passed.
We are not holding any brief for the
water or electric light company, nor
do we get a cent from either unless
it is for wnrk iu the mechanical end
nf our business. But we do hold a
brief for the town nf Cranbrook, and
we have been working hard for our
client for eight years, hoping aud

always advocated progress and that
is why we will continue to do sn as

parliamentary bill to establish a
mail service from Blacksod Bay to
Canada ami the Far East, it is stated, a project has been mooted to run
it large ferry boat from Stranraer
to Lame or Belfast. Passengers ar-
rlvllig from Scottish and English centres would not require to leave their
seats on arriving at Stranraer, the
mail vans and carriages being run ou
