A writer ou tho Btatt ut tin- Calvary Heruld, who attended tlie recent
opening ot tlie Banff-Windermere
road, made thu trip duwu to Cranbrook following that eveut in company
with Mr, Norman Moore, Hie district
forester, and Mrs. Moore. liiu liu-
lirt'NHluiiH of tlio work coming within
the mxwu of the forestry department
weru described in nn article recently
appearing iu that pupur, uml Illustrti-
ted with pictures ot scenes connected
with the work ot the forestry branch.
The article in tho Calgary Herald read
iu part as follows;
"Loft, here by a brainless wonder
and under a six foot dry log ut Unit.
Tlie party probably did uot have
the bruins to make a hu t year's bird'
nest," There waa a tincture ot bitter
iitss iu tlio.se words as the brown-
faced district forest ranger stood for
a moment and surveyed tbe smouldering campfire. It was only a few
yards from a running stream, and
there was loose soil aplenty around
the spot. Rising upward on the slopes
ot tbe mountains stood noble forest
trees iu serried ranks. Not far away,
waa a sign nailed to a tree: "Campers,
extinguish your fires. It takes a hundred years to grow a tree. Fire will
de.--troy it in a hundred minutes." The
forester took an old tin can from his
car and carried water from the stream
close by, and ln a few moments the
fire was dead, but not before the log
under which it was built was scorched and blackened. He looked around
at tbe trees which lifted their trended
tops to the mountains, and to the
clear blue sky above. He said nothing
more. He was sorry and, perhaps,
more angry than Borry. "Left here
by a brainless wonder." Do you
wonder at that?
The foregoing was one of the in.
cldents or a 95 mile motor trip on
Sunday, July let, from lnvermere, B.
C, to Cranbrook, B.C., by u Herald
news writer. Having accompanied
the official party to the opening of the
Bun if-Windermere highway at Koote
nay Crossing, and from there en to
lnvermere and Windermere, thus;
two beautiful lake resorts in the valley
of the Columbia, he desired to see yet
more of this wonderful road, known
oil the map as the "Blue Trail," uml
leading in a circle tour from Calgary
(o Banff, Banff to Windermere, Windermere to Fornle and so on through
the Crow's Neet Pass, down through
Coleman, Blalrmore and Frank, thence
to Mcleod and so on north through
the rich prairie country of the south.

On Friday evening last a speciai
meeting of the Rod and Gun Club waa
held in tlio city halt when n large,
number of members met to discuss
matters relative to the hatchery. The
ihalr wus taken by tho president, E.
T. Cooper, ut 8.45. After the reading
the minutes of tlie last regulur
meeting Mr. A. 13. Turner wa.s appointed seerefnry, pro. tern.
Mr. J. F. Uuimont's lestgnatlon as
seorelary was reud and accepted. It
wus moved und seconded thut a letter
lie sent to Mr. Uulmont conveying to
him i be appreciation of the club for
the services he has rendered
und alf.o to express the regret tliat
fits  resignation caused.
Mr. A, E. Turner was elected permanent secretary.
The president read a most comprehensive report on tho fish hatchery
together with a financial statement in
connection therewith, The matter of
meeting the-obligatlons that liad been
incurred lu connection with the construction and operation of the hatchery wa-. thoroughly gone into, and
ways and means suggested of meeting
same were considered. A committee
composed of Messrs. Geo. Hogarth, W.
H. Wilson, Dr. G. E. L. MacKinnon,
and president E. T. Cooper were elected to meet Dr. King In this connection while he was visiting in the city.
At the government's request, a
statement of tlie salary and expenses
paid in connection with the engagement of Mr. Ryder will be sent them.
It was decided to place the balance
of the fish in the hatchery in Rock
The report of the president related
to the activities of the club In connection with the establishment ot the
butchery, and the construction of the
same with the assistance of membeis
ot the club. The first eggs were secured from Munro luke, from which
'iO,u»o cut throats were taken; 375,000
eul-throut, the biggest take of this
species din record in the province
were obtained from Fish Lakes. The
president estimated that next year
1.000,000 eggs could be secured. It
was reported that some loss was sua
tnined through the baskets not being
of suitable mesh for, the cut-throat
eggs. 237.000 eyed eggs were successfully planted and 67,000 fry liberated
in various waters, distributed as follows:
Eyed eggs.    Fry.

butchery ure ns follow*-: Lumber,
1188.07; Supplies, $93.45; Wages,
1528.55; Cur Hire $40.00; Miscellaneous, $48.90, making a total of $899.87.
of this amount there ts a balance
stiff duo of $328.29, with a cush balance on hand of $93.77. To pay off
the present Indebtedness and to take
-tire of the running expenses ot the
*-l 11 li It will be necessary to raise $318.
li Is anticipated thnt this will be met
by u row small donations to come in,
.mil there Is hope thut the government
may see their way clear to assist.
The report raid: "The thanks of the
association are duo to all those who
have donnied various articles to build
mul equip the butchery, among other?
the city council for their kindness in
giving nil the sash and glass used In
tbe building. Also to all those who
gftVO their services and cars in the
distribution of the eggs and fry."
A recommendation was mode that
1 cur ho purchased for the exclusive
use of tlie hntcbery.
In concluding Ms report the president referred to the wonderful success
hat bad attended the first efforts of
he Hod nml Gun Club In connection
with ihe hatchery, far exceeding their
expectations, and he felt certain that
when the report of the operations for
the season was before the department
they would be forced to admit the
correctness of the contention as to
Cranbrnok being the logical point for
a permanent hatchery. He also expressed the sincere hope that help
would be forthcoming to permanently
curry on the work.
. At the'conclusion of the regular
'business, president Cooper, on behalf
of tho club presented Mr. Ryder with
a fine pipe and case together with a
$20.00 gold piece as a slight token of
their appreciation ot their apprecla
Hon of the services he had rendered
In addition to hie recognised duties.
At the next regular meeting the
matter of fishing Ucesaws will ba teen up.
Those who attended the baseball j
game on Friday evening lust between
the Y.M.C.A. and the City were treat-'
ed to one of the hest games of the
season. The City team hud us their
pitcher,7 Mr. Gray, brother of tbe C.
P. R. nioundsmun, Dolly Gray, who is
visiting In the city from Burnuhy, he
being the stur twlrler for tliat team.
He bus speed to bum and was a
stumbling block for the "V" team us
for a while they could do nothing with
him. McUren, bohlnd the but, who
hud u finger knocked out in a practise tho night before, found him dllll-
pult to hold, but nevertheless played,
u good game und with Sinclair at
liacond spoiled many uu attempted
steal from first. Beside the pitching
of Gray, the fledlng of the Y.M.C.A.
team was well worth seeing. The
boys were out for blood and nothing
daunted by the handicap of the star
twhler against them were out to win.
Ml through the game their fielding
was almost perfect, and besides, on
several occasions they made grandstand plays that bordered on the sen-:
sational. The shining lights In tbe
field were Grady and Clapp. Nothing
could pass Grady. On one occasion
011 a vicious drive by Simpson tho
ball was so" hot that it went through
his hands but he stopped it with his
neck. ■ His pick-ups were of the
world series class"and hts throws to
first were as accurate as if shot by u
rifle, with the result that there wero
many put out at first that, otherwise
would have been safe. The "Y" team
also executed some ■ pretty double
plays, which spoiled tbo City's chances of scoring several times. Clapp
In the field was the hero on several
occasions. Once with the sun in his
eyes, a ball came snaring over his
head. He ran hack stopped and looked, ran back again, stopped, nnd then
made a pretty one handed catch of the
ball. Tho whole of the "Y" team
played good ball. The only time
they tell down was ln the seventh
when they stopped too long to dispute the umpire's decision while the
City players were rambling round tbe
bases for runs. Umpiring ut the
games is not by any means an easy
job and the services are given free.
None of the gentlemen who have undertaken the tusk have any Interest
In one team more than nnother. In
the heat ot the game it is difficult to
restrain one's self if it is thought a
wrong decision* bus heen made, but
at the same time discretion should he
used oivlt will be difficult to get anyone to umpire. With the umpire
watching a play at the plate, If a
player is disposed to cut second in
stealing to third, there i 1 no way in
which It can lie disallowed If the umpire did not see it. The only remedy
is to appoint base umpires. Mr.
Salter had many close decisions to
make. It is stated there is a possibility of the game being protested and
another game being played to settle
the first part of the league season.

Consideration Ot' Matters
I.nltl Before Minister
Ou Saturday night a delegation from
ihe Cranbrook Hod and Gun Club
waited on Hon. Dr. King and presented the case of the local club for the
hatchery! The delegation pointed out
tho value the local hatchery would be
to the fishing in tin) district, und quoted figures to show how the hatchery
wus already an accomplished success.
Tho report of the operations to date
us presented in another column were
also, read to Dr. King showing that
what was heretofore a matter of conjecture, was now proven conclusively.
Next year, instead of half a million
fry, over one million would be readily
obtainable. What      Ibis      would
mean to tlie water;, of the district w
incalculable. The doctor appreciated
the position of the ..Hud and Gun Club
but explained how difficult it was to
get the department to provide money
for the maintenance of the hatchery,
for If anything were given to Cranbrook It would not be long before
every club in tho country would he
out for support. He said, however
that he would take the mutter up at.
once with Ottawa and hoped that the
depart 11/jtit. of fisheries would see
their way clear to assist in the matter
of the payment or the local hatchery
manager. The doctor was taken on a
trip of inspection to tlie hatchery us
soon as he arrived in llio city.
The delegation meeting Dr. King
wero W. H. Wilson, Geo. Hogarth, Dr.
MacKinnon, and Ted Cooper.
A wire has since been despatched to
Ottawa and it. is fioped that before
tbo doctor leaves lie will have some
good news for the energetic fishing
Cnl liusiasls.
As uu ovideiice of the value of the
lUbiiig io the district a Herald repr
sontative, in conversation with
tourist who had taken the wrong trail
.ind hud got into lbe Goat Canyon
district, was told that thoy did not
mind having to go out of tlio way In
the least as the scenery over there
was wonderful and they got up that
morning and hud fresh fish for break-
h* A. to B. Ol It. T.
On Thursday morning of last week
mother death was added to the list
if those attributable to blasting operations. These occur from time to time
but appear to be no lesson to others.
In ibis particular case it appears thai
1 powderman by the name of Joseph
Pats, engaged at Camp So. 3, Lumber-
ton, had placed two charges of dynamite under a stump, called fire, and
.went to a place of safety. Tbe Hamsters who drew tlie stumps after thoy
e blown cut, after they heard the
second shot, which tliey were expecting, came hack to tbe slump only to
find the powderman lying near it with
iiis head buried in Hie mud, Indicating ■ iQu-e-i
hat he had evidently gone hack thinking that both shots hud gone off, or
to see why the second one laid not.
The last reason is hardly probable,
as the witnesses al the inquest claim
hat there was only two minutes at
the most between shots. Dr. Christie
and constable Duncan of the provincial police conducted an Inquest, the
coroner's verdict being that death
was accidental, caused from shock
and concussion from delayed explosion of slumping powtler.
The deceased was cniuarrlod, a native of Holland, and had been in this
country about seventeen year.1-., coming here from Hardisty, Alberta, at
which place he bad a homestead.

The Board of Hallway Coffmlssion-
ers visited Ferule last week and held
ill day tension lu the City Chambers hearing t he eight cases brought
before them. Decisions were giveu in
all cases excepting the application of
tbe Lethbrldge Board of Trade for
restoration of the daylight train service through the Crow.
On a request for an extension of
the C.P.R. depot platform at Fernie
two car-lengths to accomodate full
length of passenger trains, it was ordered that the engine on west bound
trains stop beyond the platform. The
C.P.R. also promised to improve the
lighting system on the platform.
Mr. J. B. Turney, of the lethbrldge
Board of Trade, supported by the Ferule Board of Trade and the associated
boards 0 Southern Alberta and Southeastern B.C., made application for the
restoration of a daily daylight train

"On behalf of the Lethbrldge Board
if Trade aud commercial interests of

relief of the present unsatisfactory

railway. The present service between
lethbrldge and 1 Yin brook of one

twenty-four hours ts a matter of great
Inconvenience to the residents, and additional expense to the commercial
Interests of the district. This fs more

-ame passenger railway service JJwt
was given in 1900, one train each way
every twenty-four hours, and an additional stub service three times a
week from lethbrldge to Crow's Nest.
We submit that the development of
the district and the Increase fn the
population and freight earnings warrants more convenience for the travelling public. It is hard to conceive
hn*w It can be expected that a population nf about forty thousand people
fn the district affected can be adequately served with only one train
each way daily, and more particularly
at points where this one train arrives
and departs in the middle of the niclir,
as is the case with Nos. 67 and 68.
"We quite appreciate the Chief Commissioner's expressed views that
economy must be practised by the
railway companies If the puhlic are to
continue demanding lower freight
rates, but there Is a point where too
drastic curtailment of service fails to
be economy, especially to the travelling public and commercial IntereBU.
At the present time there are between
seventy-five   and   eighty   commercial
avellers travelling out of Lethbrldge
along tht Crow's Nest r -'lie. This
does not take into account the great
number of travellers wt ■ work this
district from Calgary, Vancouver,

Mit'se traveller; aie put to an enormous exponte in maintaining ih*«w
representatives on tbe Crow's Nest
line through lack of additional train
each way dally. )i Is Impossible to
keep a traveller on the nwd at a le.,s
expense than JT On a day actual expenses in addition to hi- salary. Under
ihe present conditions a traveller can
only work one town per duy. As tbe
towns are nil small, the trade limited,
he traveller invariably finishes up his
work in a few hours, but Is obliged to
wait twenty-four hours for the following day's train. With one additional train each way daily as we are
asking for. a traveller will be enabled
to work at least two and sometimes,
by "doubling hack," three towns per
day. In other words to do business
properly It Is now costing ihe wholesale bouses represented by perhaps
eighty travellers, two or three times,

Resume of Events & Legislative Enactments by Recent Parliament as
they Affect Agriculture
(By tho HdD. W. H. Motherwell)
A number of acts have been punned
fuich an "An act to anuiiil nud con-
solldato tin- ActB renpocting Live
Slock" und "An tu*t to regulate tbe sale
ami inspection ur Fruit and Fruit
Container.-.," which can be merely referred to bere as containing very ini
portaut and up to date leglsatlon
iu their respective fields. The came
may be said of the amendment,!) to
Feeding Stuffs Act and the Dairy Industry Aot, the latter of which provides for the prohibition of the manufacture and Importation of filled
butter, tilled filk.aud filled cream-
three pernicious practices that were
quietly but persistently establishing a
foothold in Canada to the detriment
6f the dairy Industry.
In addition to this important legislation affecting one of our chief corner stones of Canadian agriculture-
dairying—-waa the .tight to a finish
during the last Session on the question of whether the prohibition of tho
manufacture und importation of Oleo.,
would be again reverted to, as it existed for thirty years prior to 1917.
By a non-party vote of 54 to 125, Oleo,
for the time* being, received a solar
plexus blow that will take some recovering from, Nothing daunted,
however, the packers' professional
lobbyist was on anxioui Inquirer
around the corridors tho week following the vote, doubtless with a view to
renewing the battle at some later
Although the removal of the British Embargo on Canadian cattle did
not require legislative action on tho
part of the Canadian parliament, it
did on the part of the Imperial government, which was the outcome of a
conference between the Imperial and
Canadian authorities, — hence, properly referred to In this article as one
of the advanced steps taken on behalf
or agriculture during the past year.
Tho removal of the British Embargo
ngainst Canadian cattle has had n
greater direct result In improving the
farmers' market that any other single
move that has been accomplished during the past few years.
Canuiln was lu the unfortunate position of being largely shut out from
llio only two available markets for
her live cattle—the American tariff
smd the British Embargo accomplishing this end.
An agitation 1ms been carried on
both in Oreat Britain and Canada for
a number of years for the removal of
the Embargo, and a great many people
on both sides of tho water have given
VtUu&ble assistance In this effort, and
not 8 few of them claim thai the removal of the Embargo Is entirely due
to their efforts. But to say that ;i
greal many pcoplo helped In bringing tills about is much nearer tho
truth   or the matter.
For tho last two or three yenrs,
while if was generally expected that
the Embargo would be ultimately removed, It was of vital Interest to the
business or raising cattle In Canada
that it should be removed quickly, and
the delay wus not only disappointing,
but il won ruinous to the cattle burin ess.
They accomplished something, however, or real Importance for the Canadian farmer when they enme to a
satisfactory settlement of the case,
which ns a malter of fart, wan only
concluded the morning after the
Lloyd (leorge government had resigned. A new government took office In
Great Britain and It looked for a time
like another year's delay. A special
session of the new parliament was
called In November to pas* the Irish
Bill.   The Canadian government pres-
grunting of a certain bounty on twine
and eordage made from hemp for the
purpose of establishing a hemp industry In western Canada—u movement well worth a moment's consideration,
Canada last year became famous by
having arrived at thte stage of being
the largest exporter or wheat in the
world. In the face of this it does
seem a mistake to longer continue to
depend upon foreign countries tor the
twine with which to tie nine-tenths ot
this crop. Hemp in a product that can
be grown successfully, almost luxuriantly, in many parts of the west and
east, with or without Irrigation. It
grows freely In this country, and
shorn! supply unlimited quantities' of
raw material for the successful es
tablishment of a hemp industry, the
future production of which tor both
home consumption and export no mun
can estimate.
Following tho reduction of freight
rates by the restoration of the crow's
Neat Pass agreement, important legislation has been passed designed to
control and regulate lake rates, which
soared to such alarming proportions)
last fall.
The personnel and work of the newly-appointed Royal drain Enquiry
Commission, presided over by Mr,
Justice Turgeon, is another indication
of the desire or the government to
servo agriculture. ,
The Increase In the estimates, of
over half a million dollars for the
Eradication of Bovine Tuberculosis,
twenty-five thousand for further experiments in the exportation of chilled beef and ten thousand for experimentation with the dehydrating of
fruit, all speak for themselves and Indicate a further desire to grapple with
first things first in the solution of
Canada's many agricultural problems.

Human Nature
An old physician was noted for bis
brusk manner and methods. A woman called him to treat her baby,
who was slightly ailing. The doctor
prescribed castor oil. "But, doctor,"
protested the young mother, "ca-ior
oil is such an old-fashioned remedy."
"Madame," replied the doctor; "babies are old-fashioned things."

An A-l Memory
Blinks, after inviting his frloml
Jinks to dinner, was telling him about
the remarkable memory of his little
son, Bobby. "And do you think lie
will remember me?" asked Jitiks.
'Remember you? Why certtuinly he
An hour later they entered the house
and after Jinks hud greeted Mrr..
Blinks, he called Bobby over to him.
"Well, Bobby, do you remember me,
he asked.
" 'Course  I  do.     You're  (he  man

Playing Safe
In spite of repeated warnings from
rls father, Bobby persisted In driving
nails lntd blocks and boards. He had
arrived at the play at carpenter stage
Ona morning dad heard the familiar pounding, and looking out saw
Bobby busily banging away—Sister
Mary down beside him, apparently
looking on.
Haven't I told you, Bobby, that
you will smash your fingers If you
drive nails?" tbe father asked.
Yes, I know, dad, but Mary's holding the nail.

Doubly Significant
Small boys often ask embarrassing
questions. A preacher was addressing the Sunday School, and .explaining the significance of white.
"Why," he asked, "does a bride desire to be clothed ln white at her
marriage?" As no one answered he
went oh, "Because white stands for
joy, and the wedding day is the most
joyous occasion in a woman's life."
Immediately a ltttle fellow piped
up: "Please, sir, why do the men all
wear black?"

"Let's Get to Work and
Pay Off the Mortgage"
[INE years ago Canada's national  debt was  about  one-
I third of a billion. It is more
than two and one-third billions
Our debts have greatly increased—our revenues must
also go up. The farmer has to
bear his share of the increased
burden. That means he must
increase his revenue.
Complaint has been heard
that farmers under present
conditions in Canada cannot
make farming pay. And yet
many thousands of Canadian
farmers do make it pay.
How Ia It Done?
Patient and Industrious "carry
on" will do wonders, but some,
thing more ia needed. Too often
"patient industry" ia coupled with
"dull persistence" in poorly
thought out methods.
Farmers today more than ever,
must plan ahead, as well as "plug
along ; indeed they have no option, If they wish to succeed.
Co-ordination of head and hand
will mean real success. Farming
In Canada has paid and pays now
on many farms. It can be made to
pay on almost every farm. Canadian agriculture has passed through
low profit-making eras successfully in the paat and can do so
Crop Returns Should be) Increaeed
On the Central Eaperimental Farm at
Ottawa some crop costs and crop profits
In 1922 aa contrasted with all-Ontario
average crop costs and crop profits are
given below. The all-Ontario figures are
in brackets:

With the increased cost of production, the higher standards of
living now prevailing cannot be
maintained by poor farm management, "boarder" milkers, ecrub
beeves, poor quality hogs or non-
profitable hens.
That even under present conditions profits may be made is testified by many skilful, observant and
non-plunging farmers, who believe
more in the policy of "slow but
sure" and "pay as you go" rather
than speed, with excessive borrowing and the often consequent
The results on our Eaperimental
Farms also bear testimony to the
value of thorough, skilful work.
The Farmer Must
But crops alone are not enough.
The farmer must change his crops
into less bulky and more high-
priced products—milk, pork, beef,
mutton, poultry, etc.
With fair yielding cows dairying
shows fcood profits in Canada. The
average cow has increased her
yield 2S'', in the last ten years.
She can quite readily go up another 25'.. and more, and there's
where the profit lies. Better feeding, better selection and better
breeding will do the job—teed,
weed, breed.
To do better feeding means
better pastures and more generous
supplies of palatable roughage.
Short rotationsindudingdover and
ensilage crops (corn, sunflower,
pea and oat, etc.) will provide feed
in abundance for both summer and
winter. The experiments and Investigations which the Dominion
Department of Agriculture have
carried on prove that farming
scientifically and systematically
undertaken will pay profits. The
records and particulars of such
work in every province are available to the Canadian farmer.
Experimental Farm crops are
sometimes claimed to be produced
at too great cost. Thousands of
experiments, however, show that
increaeed cropping costs wisely
applied up to a reaaonable point
always increase crop profits. This
is true on the Experimental Farm
—and on any and every farm.

FRIDAY, JULY 22nd, 11)23
The tourist traffic In this district is no longer a matter of
conjecture. It is no longer regarded as being/ fanciful or
visionary to speak of the volume of tourist trade that the
Cranbrook district enjoys. The
tourist is abroad in the laud in
hundreds. One has only to
keep their eyes open to see
Motor touring is a late development in vacation-making
which the popularizing of the
motor car has brought to an
ever-increasing number of people. The tourist camp, for the
convenience of those who travel in this way is an even later
development. Two or three
years ago, the facilities that the
city of Cranbrook offered these
sojourners within our gates
was adequate; today they are
not. The opening of the new
highway link through to Banff
and the prairies is doing precisely what the optimists predicted it would bringing a far
larger volume of tourists into
this city.
These people are quite frank
in expressing (heir approbation
of the natural attractions that
await them here, und the general good condition of the
roads. With equal frankness
many of them also express disappointment that the accommodations provided   for   them
preclude a longer stay. The
city may save a little money in
not making a little greater outlay on the tourist park but it
loses the money the tourists
would otherwise leave here, and
what is probably worth more
still, the city will get a reputation as being a good place to
go right through. Tlie attrac
tions of tlie district have been
broadcasted In the land by
means of the printed page, and
now tlie tourist must be made
to feel lie does not have to hurry on.
The completion of the Banff-
Windermere road marks the
•end of one epoch in the
development of the tourist traffic of tlie district. Now tliat il
has emerged from the nebulous
into the real, il would be fc.
thousand pities for the towns
that have worked together for
years in urging tlie work on
to dissolve their working partnership by which all may claim
to have an interest in the road.
It is said that the feeling Is being entertained in Fernie tha
Cranbrook is getting a good
deal more benefit from the
flow of tourists, because ihey
are keeping to the circle tour
and not making the trip cast
and west through the Crows
Nest. Dad roads in tliat section may enter into the question, and there may be other
considerations to be weighed
as well, but the fact, remains
that Cranbrook would be show
ing a neighborly spirit if it
engaged in a campaign to int
erest tlie tourist who is out to
see the country in the detour
through the Crows Nest pass,
where it is admitted the scenery is unequalled. Much Pernie
lime and money has gone into
the completion of the Banff-
Windermere road, and tlie two
cities can still work together
in the matter of distributing
the tourist traffic so that its benefits may be felt in as many
directions as possible.
The Senate of Canada, in the
function of powers it possesses
according to the constitution of
the country, has seen fit to reject certain legislation which
the lower chamber at Ottawa
desired to put into effect. In
consequence it has come in for
some rough handling from the
press and politicians of tlie
country, the clamor in B.C. being perhaps the loudest. No
less a gentleman than the attorney-general of this province
who was iu the limelight a little while back in connection
with a letter which seemed to
insinuate that the senate wns
open to corrupt influences in
dealing with a measure in
which he was interested, has
gone the limit in coining an
unfortunate phrase to the effect that "if the Senate had
seen fit to do their duty—" a
clear allegation that the Senate 'knowingly rejected the
right, course. There have also been the customary uncomplimentary references to the
"party hacks that have outlived
their usefulness," "moss-back-

tally distinguishable from those
whose interests the Senate has
stepped on.
It does not follow, however,
that tlie Senate is an encumbrance to tlio country because
it turns back to the country u
mass of ill-considered legislation passed up iu the closing
hours of tlie session. Nor does
ii follow tliat because a man
has been faithful to his party
bis usefulness to the country as
a senator is impaired. Far
from it. Tlie senate has powers it can exercise; if it failed
to use them it would be
open to criticism the more. The
vaporings against that body of
the red chamber remind one
of the outcry against the British House of Lords a couple of
decades ago, when the axe was
to be applied figuratively to the
stiff necks of some of the noble
lords who would persist in
rejecting measures from the
commons. But the house of
lords is still functioning today,
while the politicians who raised the outcry are not. So it is
likely to be with the senate of
The province of British Columbia has lost its cause cele-
bre, jvhereby it was hoped to
decrease tlie cost of liquor to
tlie patrons of tlie government
stores. Tlie privy council has
upheld the right of the dominion government to levy and
collect duty on the liquor imported liy the B. C, government.
The fight debacle at ShelnV
recently has nol done much to
elevate professional sport in
the mind of the ordinary person. The disparity in the rewards of the champion and the
challenger, tlie thin ice the pro-
motors were obviously skating
on all the time, and later the
fact that two hanks were pulled under in the wash of the
big event—these were a few of
the outstanding features that
obtruded so objectionably as to
detract from the interest In the
event itself.
According to our Premier the exact
yearly cost ol the P. O. E. is $1,081,
0S4.15. Iu view of the ecouomlc situation ln British Columbia, what is to]
be done with the road Is Indeed a
question worthy of careful consideration on the part of the electors In
British Columbia.
Wo wish, however, to draw attention
to another matter, Involving a much
more serious drain ou our resources
am) constituting a much more serious
menace to our prosperity.

cial returns, from Juno 16th, 11121, toj

sold by bootleggers. The above a-
mount, however Is over five times what
tho P. G. K. Is costing.
The P. U. E. may possibly he defended as u pioneer railroad opening up
a large section ot the Province that in

plana fur the electrification of the

the water power available on the d
Imnbia river In the vicinity of the
main line aro now being carried out
by lbe company. At present there
are observers determining tlie water-
power at Surprise rapidg oa Ihe Columbia river about 32 miles south of
Beavermouth. Mr, Coleman 'states
that surveys for tlio time being ure
being confined to the water of the
Columbia river. That a start on the
artuirl work of electrifying tlio railway during the next year is believed
to be a certainty, according to those
eloBoly informed. Mr. Coleman slates
traffic demands, flnancllul situation
and other conditions would determine
largely when a start would be made.
Ho would not confirm the possibility of a atari on tlie project next year,
but Intimated such a step would not
bo long delayed. Plans for the changing of the motive power iron, steam
tu electricity have heen under consideration for tho past two or throe
years. Earlier in tlie history of the
project. Grant Mallf vice president of
the entire system, and Mr. Coleman,
himself, went into the entire matter,
making an exhaustive study of the
Tlie electrification ot the ■ road
through the Rockies woul approximately double its capacity. Not only
would it be possible to haul more hut
greater speed would also be maintained on the heavy mountain grades.!
Tho change from steam to olectrl-j
cal power Involves a huge expenditure;
and months of work for a veritable
army of men. If Surprise rapids is
selected as ono of the power sites,

volve the construction of adam 132
feet fu height making an artificial lake
on tho Columbia river about four
miles wide aud several miles In

a survey is made only at these rapids
It Is understood that additional surveys of tlie waterpower will be undertaken at Golden and Revelstoke.

that It wants In the way of freight
reductions and equalization of rates
it is almost inevitable that a reduction will be made to a certain extent.
In a reduction of mountain rates,
the Canadian National Railways Is
better able to stand a cut, from the
viewpoint of operating costs, over a
line which crosses the mountains ou
a grade tliat Is one half of one per
cent. The grade of the Canadian Pacific Railway riBes In certain sections
of the Selkirk mountains to 2.2 per
cent. It was to reduce these grades
that the work: of building the spiral
tunnels at Field, and ulso the Con-
naught tunnel, was undertaken. In
view of the* expensive grades ..over,
which It operates, the Canadian Pacific Railway is said to be unable to
to withstand such a freight reduction
and continue to operate with steam
power. Even although electricity is
adopted as a source of motive power
I further grade reductions on a costly
J scale are being contemplated, lt ia
believed, by the railway official.-,.

IN ths past Intsrruptions to telegraph service caused
by damsge to outside wires could only, In the majority ol uses, be rectified by daylight, when the
damaged section could easily be located. There is no
doubt this was s disadvantage which delayed the recovery of Interrupted services. Where the trouble may
hav. been anywhere along tht line between points
sum. 20 to 100 miles spart It wns not possible to
take care of the interruption) especially at night To
overcome the disadvantage due to night interruptions
to  'ts  vires, tht  Canadian  Pacific  Railway Tele-
firapht provided a specisl electric light snd sll the
Inemen on the System were equipped with It, enabling
them to successfully uke care of interruptions and
do their Work at night at well as by day. Tho special light It provided with IU power from the locomotive dynamo turbines with ..which all Canadian IV
eific locomotives srs equipped. i
» The specisl light In itself Is of simplo construe-
tlon, tht power It derived from the dynamo turbine
from the locomotive which provide! electricity for
th* Illumination of tht headlights snd cab lights.

sUnd to which the lamp can be attached for the convenience of men working at night on bridges or, in
fact anywhere that require! t steady flow of light.
The lamp can also by Interchsngs of globes be used
where there Is s domestic current, but not with such

As there is so much that can affect the Telegraph
System, such ss fire surora, lightening, snow, wind
and rain, ths sdvontags of being sble to locate tho
source of trouble ctnnot be overestimated and time
and tlmo again, when tho lines have been seriously
damaged during ths night, it hss been found that
the electric hand lamp, which is now used throughout
the System, has beon of greet benefit During ths

Our forests are the source of our
commercial activities. Tliey furnish
the grand beauty to our rugged country which attracts thousands of
enthusiastic tourists in growing numbers each season.
We must protect our forests from
fire. Destruction to any part of our
valuable forests means loss to the
great industries that are supported
hy them. Forest fires must be fought,
and the thousands of dollars paid to
the fire fighters is as much a loss as
ure the bridges, mills, fences, timber,
und logging equipment actually destroyed by the flames. The scattered
forests of pine, too, must be guarded.
Without logs, poles and fuel, settlers
could not live in tbe interior where
the winters are severe, and so the
wealth of dur great ranges would
never be gathered in.
We must also protect our forests of
Lodge Pole Pine and White Spruce in
tlie Interior wet belt. Without these
trees on the mountain slopes, the
spring freshets would wash away all
vegetation from the mountain sides.
Without the massed tree roots and
shady boughs, the ground would not
hold buck the heavy rains of the wet
seasons, so that our streams would
be (Instructive torrents in the spring
and dry rock beds in the summer,
when irrigation is so nec«ssary.
Without our forests we would be
without our game and fur bearing
animate. Our loggers, farmers, hunters, and those in the centers who
trade and manufacture for them, depend on thjem; so for everybody's
sake we must protect them from fire.
The oak groves of southern Vancouver Island ure too limited to be of
greet commercial worth, yet to revel
In the beauties of this district as many
us five hundred tourists have passed
through Its center, Victoria, in one
duy some fifty of these having cars.
Tlie amount spent ench year by tourists In our province Is very grent.
Our wet belt forests are of the
greatest commercial importance, for
the giant Dougas Fir, the Sitka Spruce
und Cedar, make the finest timber in
the word. Thirty millions are paid
annually to men engaged in the lumber Industry, and doubtless as much
again Is spent iu logging and milling
equipment. Great paper mills on the
coast export much paper, which, with
the heavy lumber shipments help to
balance our world wide trade. The
revenue atone from our forests last
year was two million nine hundred
thousand dollars.
The dense Jungle -like undergrowth
of these forests support the abundance
of game. These offer recreation to
the townsfolk, great sport to the tourists, and furnish the farmers with free
meat. Insect-destroying birds, which
are netessary for successful crop!
must have forer.t homes.
From the Interior forest belt, t.'uppers gather In hundreds of dollars
worth of fur each year; and as the
coast forests give out, these Interior
forets will become of more value.
Don't let the fires devour our for-
osts. With them must go the logger,
the farmer, the trapper and the tourist, and so the tradesmen and manufacturers In our cities. ,
A neglected spark could destroy.
with our forests, our means of living.
We must keep the fires away from

way every twenty-four hours, the day
coaches ure tnevltubly so crowded that
it Is often Impossible to secure a seat
which necessitates the extra expense
of buying a reservation in the sleeping car. Further, if one can secure u
seat ln a day coach, tlie crowded condition and class of passenger-, make
it very disagreeable, unsafe and unsanitary, especially on the night train.
"We acknowledge that automobile
truffle materially affects and decreases the passenger earnings, particularly In the summer muni iis, but we
contend that this argument should not
bo used against giving this district a
reasonublo service, The automobile
tralllc Is not n local condition, but is
competition that tho railway companies have to contend with throughout
tbo wliolo country.
"Southern Alberta has lu prospect
tbo largest crop in Its history which
will nulln lidded prosperity tt 11 d activity iu alt mining nud lumbering
towns along tho Crow's Nest Branch..
In pmivperou., times there Is a largo
flouting population between the camps
and towns in the mountains uml to
and from the prairies . We urge yon
to take this prospective Increase in
passenger Business into consideration.
"If economies aro lo be practised
by the railway companies ns stated by
your Chief Commissioner, w*o contend
that your board could best afford to
force practise of such economics by
curtailing present unnecessary pus-
senger service between points Wliero
competitive railways are operating, lifer instance, the Canadian Pdclvc
Railway are at present operating
three dally passenger trains ench way
between Calgary and Edmonton—not
because of the heavy tratllc nor because the trains arc earning expenses,
but .-imply on account of tlie Canadian
National Railway competing with
them for thin trade. It can readily
be shown that one of the nbove trains
can be dispensed with and placed on
the Crow's Xest sub-dtvlMpn and be a
better paying proposition than it U,
"We ask relief from your board by
ordering the restoration of the daily
day-light train service between Medicine Hat and Cranbrook as was in
effect about 1912, that Is, a daily train
eaving Medicine Hat and Cranbrook
at 7 a.m. daily except Sunduy, arriving at their respective destinations
about il p.m. It is our belief that if
