WA, B.
(Written   expressly fur Pry -Fanning
by R.R. Parsons).
I wan asked this question by a
state official tlie iitlier (lay: "How
can   wo boost ilry-farming in Colot-
Tliere is nnly une answer to this
l-llt'stitHi, ami    I  believe it   ll|>|illes tu
every dry country in Hn* world:
Increase tbe depth nf plowing.
Supposing   it   were possible to add
sis  Incites tn tbe seed beds ot   every
dry (arm tm tbis continent nevt year,
nr smile otlior year; wbat  would     be
ibe result?
Speaking broadly llie crops, Uie
production fnr tbe whole country
would to doubled; tin* railroads could
nut haul it.
What stands between thi' everyday
fanner and deep plowing?
On the one band we cannot blind
ourselves to the fart that tbere is
considerable prejudice; on the other
band there is the extra expense nf
probably 12.50 more per acre per
horse power.
When people ask me "What is the
principal factor in your success as
a dry-farmer?" I unhesitatingly reply.
"deep plowing."
In ordinary agriculture tlie seed bed
lias always been considered as the
mother of the crop. In dry-farming
the subsoil has more to do with it,
and the principal [unction of the
seed bed is as a mulch to the subsoil. No payable dry-farm crop has
ever been harvested tbat was not
rooted, and well rooted, iu the sub-*
The seed bed provides a foraging
place for the surface roots, hut the
subsoil supplies the moisture, and we
all know that when conditions are
right the mots will gn into it from
four to ten feet. Wben the subsoil
moisture has been used up hr two
dry years in succession it is useless
to expect a crop unless the season is
favorable, but tbis may nut happen
once in une hundred years. With
deep plowing, say with a minimum
of ten inches, aud an average precipitation of fifteen inehes, the moisture
will steadily increase iu the subsoil,
even when tbe land is cropped every
year, and one dry year will not cut
the yield to any .ureal extent, pro
viiled there was even the rainfall at
plant iin: time to obtain a stand.
Laboratory experiments in soil and
water physics dn not show the true
action of moisture in dry-farm subsoils, where, on account of thp dry-
ground below, tbe tendency is always downward, not upward, and
therefore in tbe held tbe subsoil as
well as the seed bed dries mil un the
tup lirst and less and less as we net
down until at two feet under a seed
bed ten inches deep tbe luss |i\ evu-
poration is about nil     Tins la    the
plate     to bold   the    moisture, where
nothing but the routs can take 11
Then* are some ranches, ol course,
where deep plowing will imt pay, be
cause there is nnt enough soil; but
these are rare in the weal and should
be used (ur pasture only.

All idea prevails amongst some uf
nur farmers tbat new soil Is sour or
wild, and nnt lit to raise crops on.
The fact of the matter is our wesl
ern soils are not only rich, but well
aerated tn ure,it depths, for after, the
great water period, thousands and
thousands of years ngo, the ground
eradually died out, air took tbe place
of the water, and tbey have never
been wet since mnre than a foot or
two frnm the surface down Under
Ihese conditions the anarrohii- bacteria which cause Ihe sourness ciinrmt
exist, and the land Is all ready and
waiting to mother a crop.

In the early nineties when milling
was active in tbe Kort Steele neighborhood some of the prospectors
found wbat tbey thought was a huge
iron capping ou the summit of Ken-
wick mountain, about two miles east
of Hull River Kails. On investigation
it turned out to be a large deposit
of high grade hematite iron ore lying in beds one over another to a
depth of several hundred feet as is
shown in the section cut, or exposed
by a great rock slide on the claims
The ground was slaked atid acquired by .lames T. l.aidlaw und his
associates, all of whom were then re-*
sident in Kort Steele. The necessary development work in the way of
trail building, running crosscuts,
opening tunnels, etc,, was done to an
extent sullicieiit to crown grant
eight claims covering some hundreds
of acres and embracing ull the surface outcroppings un the summit of
the mountain.
The Hull River ure Is a hard, massive, blue und red hematite running
iu the lower grades about -tit per cent
metallic iron and in the higher tn
63 nr lil per cent. The dangerous
adiillraiits, phosphorous and sulphur
exist in entirely negligible quantities
—about one-fifteenth of one per cent.
\ similar ure exists iu nearly vertical veins nn Sand t'reek uml these
measures nre now being examined.
The want uf railway transportation was thc one thing which held
hack tin* development of these properties during all these years. Now
the Kootenay Central is constructed
tu a point within six miles or sn of
the Hull River deposits, while Galloway station is within about the
same distance of the Sand Creek
In September, 1904, Joseph Ryan

Nowhere upon earth are there healthier, happier, brighter children,
than in the homes of British Columbia. Nowhere are children more
prized by devoted indulgent parenthood than in our province. The most)
precious heritage of any race Is its
children. Tn give them sound bodies, clear minds, pure morals, high
ideals uf the divinity of living, must
occupy first place in our endeavors
for Ihe welfare nf nur race. The boy
uf today will he the man of tomorrow. What the body is today, physically, mentally, morally, determines
what the man will lie tomorrow. The
highest tribute any nation can merit
is by its care of the weak members.

Mr   McMillan at the outset observed*.
"The people of Hritish Columbia
have Inherited such u vast estate ol

Imm tbis inherited estate, thai it is
to lie feared that must uf them do
not appreciate as highly as they
might how much their means of livelihood, their savings and the progress of the lown or country district in which thej live depend all
the time upon the way tlie timber
resources uf the province are being
handled The forest is tun generally
considered simply as a more commonplace and profitable type of
manna than Ihat which was sent
from heaven tu the ancient Israelites.
"This js a foresl province; its first
industries have been forest Industries; und today tbey are still its
mo* important and profitable industries. Even at this early stage of development the manufacture am! sale
uf forest products brings into the
province for distribution among wage
earners over $28,000,000 yearly The
foresl us au emplover ol tabor stands
head unit shoulders above the mining
industry; it is almost equal to agriculture and fisheries combined. Pick
up the threads of existence of seven
tint of ten persons in this province,
follow thfin back lo tlieir sources
and ynu will find them in the tutting
or manufacturing nr sale uf timber,
or in wiiue    form  of business    cuu
nected therewith.
"Nol only does the forest provide
Ihe people with labor and the means
of livelihood, it stands between ibe
property owner and taxation. The
timber lands of Hritish Columbia
have turned into the puhlic treasury
more money than has been secured
Irom any other source This money
has enabled the government to carry
on public works on a scale Impossible
to any other government in Canada.
The money from our giant woods
bas built roads and bridges into new
districts without burden to the set
tiers, has erected public buildings,
spread education aud provided for the
administration of justice, liven at
this early stage of development Ol

venue of Hritish Columbia, 12,000,

"The forests of Kastern Canada
differ so in character and value from
those of Western Canada, that
though the decade upon which we are
now entering will see a great decrease in forest revenue in Eastern
Canada, it will see a proportionately
greater increase in such revenue in
Hritish Columbia
"A short consideration of tbe timber areas of the two regions will
serve to illustrate ibis The more accessible forests of the Kastern prov
inces have lieen cleared away for agriculture, logged, nr swept away by
fire. The white pine'stunds have been
so reduced that the end nf ibe virgin
timber is In plain sight. North nf
the pineries on the Laurent Ian rocks,
from the Atlantic to the Lake Winnipeg, stretches a great belt, hundreds
of miles wide ol spruce thither It is
into this reserve supply that the log
ging industry ol Kastern Canada is
gradually extending so thut it has
already come io puss thut more
spruce than pine is now cut in Canada yearly.

"ft is certain, therefore, thai there,
will be dovoloped east, ur the Rocky

forest products. The manufacturers
and builders nf Kastern Canada will
enme to llritish Columbia for their

"The rapid settlement of the prairies will provide a huge market for,

"Previous speakers have called yonr
attention to the large forest area of
llritish Columbia, to the present
heavy stand of limber aud to the
verv rapid growth of the limber
which is far greater than elsewhere
on the continent, and I need not go
over that ground again except to
bIiow ymi a few scenes illustrating,
wbat has already been said.
"Who can doubt the future or a
province with such forests as these
ami with the world for a market? In
a few years from now the lumber Industry which now fringes the coasl
will spread along llie new railways
thai are being built into the interior
and through Vancouver Island. Pulp
mills which have only recently prov
ed tbeir ability In succeed iu the
west will be established in tlie upper
country, and in Hie northern interior.
"In the hundreds uf valleys where
there are now no people there will be
developed forest industries which will
be followed by villages and agriculture. The prnsperity of every wage-
earner, every merchant and every
prufessiutial man will be increased by
the general enmmerce that will be
caused hy tbis tremendous extension
uf the lumbering industry, au extension Ihat will nut reach its limit
until ut least 1100,000,000 is brought
in annually by the sale nt forest products fur distribution amongst Hie
peuple of this province. There will he
vvnrki and prosperity for everyone in
this not distant time. The public revenue from Hie forest will increase
with the increase in timber manufacture, more than keeping pace with
lhe growth iu population. Always
aud (urever Ibe fnrests iu this prov-
Incc shnuld produce sufficient revenue
tu enable great public works, roads
into new districts, public buildings
in new communities and Hie means nf
education to be paid fur without imposing any but the slightest taxation
un the people
"So great is the extent of forest
and so spontaneous is the reproduction uf timber on burned over ureas

growth of timber ou tbe public lauds
uf the province will be siilllcient to

Iness at least four times as great as
that at present. Tlie leaving of seed
trees is, of course, essential; and the
exposure uf Hie mineral soil bv the

tain the best results.

between forest and water is partlcti

Alt* Horden'n statement that tbe
empire .should have "one navy under
ime ciiut roi and one direction" seems
a precise enough declaration of policy, says tbe London Daily News; but
be prefaced it by saying that "be
did not mean in the slightest degree
to suggest that in the constitution
of that navy any dominion sbonld
lose its power of autonomy or con-
trot." With all deference lo Mr. Dor
den, the two halves nl the sentence
will not join. It will pass the wit of
man to devise machinery which will
guarantee a single navy under a
single direction and safeguard the
autonomy of the dominions; nor, in-
deed, can any federal system, based
upon population, give the dominions
a sufficient weight in thc central
council to compensate for the necessary sacrifice of full autonomy. As
Mr. Horden himself says, the doinin
ions are exceedingly jealous of any
interference with tlieir power of self
government, uml that very connnfcnd
able jealousy is uu insuperable obstacle In the way of imperial machinery which is dictated by the dream
of imperial federation.
Thc current number of the best of
the Canadian reviews, "The Queen's
Quarterly," says that imperial federation is exhausted and dead. "As
tbe months pass the more likely
does it seem that the solution of the
naval defence question will be the
construction of a Canadian navy. .
The question is not whether the
dominions will share in control of
policy or will not share, but whether the sharing will taW* the form of
representation in a permanent body
with coercive power, sitting in the
United Klngdon, or whether it will
lake the form of close co-operation
and consultation between the several
llritish states. It is a clear-cut issue between centralization and alliance. Keeping close grip on the concept ol alliance, it will prnre possible to work out still further the
mechanism of an empire which is not
an empire, to build up fleets and departments of external affairs In each
allied state, and tn use and extend
the means of consultation between
these centres." That statement ol
the case, in our opinion, say* tbe
Montreal Herald, represents the
facts, and tt untilncs a solution
which offers us efficiency without
trenching on ihe nationalism of the
dominions in all speculations upon
the fulure of the empire two fatal
errors are to he avoided: an excessive faith in the virtues of political
machlnerj and hurry There is nothing ut the naval or other position of
the empire which calls for Immediate
and ill considered decisions

that for various reasons, either wise

ll is my purpose in this discourse
lirst to give my reasons for not subscribing to this resolution, then to
answer iis substance ami meaning
with the positive teaching nf the,
Bible on the doctrine of Ruture run
ishmenl I would not commit myself i.. ihe support of ihis instru
merit even if I half believed it. know
ing as I do lhe source from which
it emanated. The International Bible
Students association, or Castor C
T. Russell ism, or Millenium Dawnlsm
is one and the same cult, Tbe plans
ihle, dangerous,    hlaBphcmotls teach
Ings  of  this    institution  are colossal
The one under consideration is one
ol a group of about eight errors Ihat
strike at the very heart of lhe
Christian religion. If the Lord wills
1 purpose exposing these errors In
the very near future
Again, this doctrine, beyond all
doubt the most terrible article in
any creed, is surely taught by
Christ m th-* Bible loi a sublime
purpose, ami I would imi even seem
to ally myself in opposition to revealed truth. I would rather be
wrong, believing what is manifestly
declared, ihan right, seeming to eon
tradlct the Word. The Bible is the
inspired word of Clod, ft contradicts,
opposes and evposes the carnality,
that gives rise to the sentiments of
this resolution, ft is the habit ol
the man ol the street to affirm that
"all the hell there is tor man is the
miseries of this present life " It certainly is in accord with human desire to take refuge in this error, but,
lhe Bible (lath  refutes it.
Once more the danger involved iu
supporting ihis resolution is tllshc
lief of an*, future punishment for the
wicked We are thrown upon the
horn* of a dilemma, tn choose lie
tween annihilation of the Impenitent
dead or iheir restoration, or holh,
We cannol  tarn  here to weigh       lhe.
arguments presented to sustain these
beliefs, but we arc strikingly convinced, after years of earnest Bible
study that its consistent Interpretation lends no .support to such hope
for the lost.
Again, to the most casual rentier,
the Bible reiterates the lorm, "lake
of lire" or its equivalent many times.
If this is not to be Interpreted literally (nol excluding its spiritual
sense) we are left absolutely without
kej to tin* problem ol future punishment.
Again, if the lerms "lake of lire,"
"eternal torment" are merely symbols of the future stale, the facts ex
iressed by them so far transcend the
xlreme limit of human com prelum
Ion, we are in any case dumbfound
d by the Inexpressibly horrible por
nm awaiting the Anally Impenitent
This resolution would lead otic to
believe that the secular history of
the rise of the great church creeds
supplies sufficient evidence of Ihi*
doctrine of future punishment having
originated In pagan sources, and hav
ing been imported into, and imposed
upon the teachings of Christ. Mow

Nets of the middle ages influenced tbe

school taught: "The   perfectly right-
t s   who   are   immediately   written

written and sealed to tlehcmia"
(Hell). The opposing school of
Millcl substantiates the above. lu

abominable, murderers, whoremongers, sorcerers, (delators, liars, shall
have Iheir pari in the lake which
burnetii with lire aud brimstone,
which is the second death.
These thirty passages can be gathered into two groups according to
the plain sense nf them. Tlmse meaning everlasting shame, contempt r
weeping and gnashing of teeth, punishment, destruclion are fifteen in
number. The other group of fifteen
gather about the idea of unquenchable fire, everlasting fire, fire and
brimstone, lake of lire and brimstone, furnace of fire. And the sense
of the two groups is expressed most
clearly in that of the latter.
Thus Haiti) the Lord concerning the
nature of future punishment, that it
will bc literally a lake ot lire and
brimstone. The human heart revolts
at the awful spectacle of the wicked
lost in hell. Vet upon tbe other hand,
who will bring the Almighty into
judgment to impugn his justice and
impeach his judgment. Who knows
the hclnousness of sin, the deeps of
the sinner's heart, lhe matching of
transgression and punishment as the
Almighty? lie has spoken, therefore
let all the earth keep silence before
IL—Duration of Ruturc Punishment. Before we give our attention
to this phase ot the question, let us
anticipate some others that may
have already arisen in your minds.
When will that awful event begin,
immediately at death, or after the
great judgment? We shall not take
time to examine the scripture specifically here, but it is our mature judgment tbat thc soul of the sinner passing out of this earthly life, will
come into Hades, Sheol, the abode
of the dead. He will be conscious
of his doom and shall exist in anticipation of the resurrection and thei
Judgment day. The parable of Dives
and Lazarus was Christ's rebube of
the Pharisees for tlieir luxurious anil
money-loving spirit. Dives is conscious, and enduring great pain and
sorrow*. Jesus once cast out a legion
of demons and aOrighted at this dis
play of divine power tliey cried: "Art
thou come to torment us before the
time"? Lost souls ami demons wilt
he kept under chains of darkness
waiting that awful summons to the
iudgmeiit seat of Christ, then      will
i away into their doom.
The answer to this question also
implies that of the nest Will there
not tie a season of probation in tbat
under-world, where time and oppor
tiinity will be granted for repentance
imi acceptance of the gospel message? Rrom the depth of my heart
I yearn to say, Yes. But the awful
silence of revelation gives no hope to
the sinner that passes beyond.
Will future punishment be endless?
Some will say that the words eternal, everlasting, forever, do not always mean endlessness. Such manifestly is the ease, hut we lind no
comfort in this. What saith the
scripture? "Forever," is used in the
New Testament nineiy-five times
Rilty-five times of unlimited duration, thirty-one limes of duration
ihat has limits, nine times to denote
the duration of future punishment.
"Eternal" is used In the New Testament sixty six times Riftv one
times of the happiness of the righteous, twice of the duration ot tlod
and His glory, six times where there
is no   doubt of its meaning 'eternal.'
seven I -s of the punishment of ihe
wicked    In thirteen ol   the-passages
we examined to  find the nature   ol
future punishment  we also find     ii
plied or clearly stated, the idea     of
endlessness    Thus   saith   the     Lord
mcerniiig the   duration of  futuro
punishment,        Again        we        may
deduce from the in
evorable  logic of   the   Bible descrip

let us he calm iu our souls regarding
divine honor, lie assured, His honor
has never been impugned hy the
preaching nf revealed truth, no matter if ii does involve Impenitent
sinners in eternal punishment,
We shall consider ihat denial pun
ishment of the wicked is hot remedial, II W needier protesting
againsl the manifest Injustice of unending pain asks a periineni -mes
tmn: "Why indict pain after It r-cas
es to remedy? Why inflict pain tor
the sake of pain''" The human con
ceptlon of Inflicting pain to comedy
transgression is exceedingly weak
ami imperfect. The thief onco im
prisoned for transgression of law
may be prevented from stealing
again because he fears n repetition
of pain. Remove the possibility of
pain ami he will steal again, lit1 is
still a thief though the opportunity
does not present itself to express it.
But, this is        one        of
the hesl methods of repression of crime known to human
society. Again, eternal punishment
is not deterrent. Human methods of
punishment arc incidentally deterrent
of wrong doing iu others. But, why
give pain to one man for the purpose
of restraining another man from
crime? If this were the highest motive for giving pain, and there were
no other person near to benefit by
llie example, then punishment would
be impossible. Therefore we must
seek higher grounds for it. The purpose of eternal punishment is therefore to vindicate the holiness of (lod.
The holiness of (lod is ids ruling attribute and from it proceeds justice
and righteousness. The moral law is
a partial expression of Ood's holiness. All law thai can claim justice
as its badge conies forth from liim.
All sin and transgression are revolt
against the claims     ol Ood's    law.

II.—The Purpose ol Eternal Pun
ishment. lu this phase of our discussion, there is great need of walking soft!) before (ind, tte are convinced that it ih here lhe average
enquirer for truth stumbles Into unwise passion and expression. Some
true lovers of Hod cannot relate the
thought of eternal punishment to ills

thinking deeply to discover divine

arm id llesh is  raised iu defence    of

in the sinfulness of his sin. As all
sin is against Ood, aud it deserves
punishment, Ood would cease tn be
God if he did not punish it. Eternal
sin requires eternal punishment. Thus
We see the purpose of it.
But, your impatience protests, "Is
not (toil n Clod of love?" Blessed he
His holy name, he is Love. But Clod
is holy as well as love. Tn the human parent and in human society,
love and justice are continually in
conflict, Love often extinguishes justice, and justice too often is untem-
pered with love, ({oil's holiness requires thai justice be meted lo the
sinner. The penalty for sin is eternal
death, or eternal punishment. Cod's
love provides a means whereby the
penal tv required by His Justice, shall

done by coming personally to earth
and offering Himself up for the sinner
on Calvary's cross. Jesus comes to
yuu and to r„p with ihe Invitation.
