ductor Jones, the flrst'intlmation of a
hold-up lame to htm.
He had been in the baggage car and
waB re-entering the smoker to give
the signal to the engineer to stop at
Sentinel. Just as he entered the door
of the smoker which he noticed was
standing slightly ajar, and Just as he
was about to pull the bell cord, a man
near the door displayed a dangerous
looking automatic and Informed Conductor Jones that he had better not
pull that cord. Conductor Jones was
naturally surprised but asked the fellow what was wrong. "Are you
crasy?" be asked -the hnndc the -fellow replying that he would soon find
Conductor Jones grabbed the bell
cord and succeeded In' pulling it but
once when the man wlio had remained
seated until this* time, tired a shot in
the direction of the conductor's head,
which missed, luckily for Jones.
At this stage In the game things
were getting lively. Another of the
gang of three put ln an apparnnce at
te door of the smoker and commanded
all to stand up ami hold up their
At the same time thc highwaymen
gave a command for the smoker passengers to march Into (he first class
coach. This order was obeyed- Before all this transpired, however, tlie
engineer, bellcvelng that tho signals
had "fell short," stopped tlu train, nml
by so doing probably thwarted the
robbers In their plans which are believed to have been to go on farther to
a more secluded spot and the give the
whole train Ihe "once «vor"
The baKgugemiut was taken from the
baggage cur ami after being searched
aud losing a roll containing about
$:t0, was marched along with the conductor anil brakeman to the rear of
the train by the leader,
Beaching the lirst class conch, one
of tho robbers, tho ring-leader or the
one who started the affair, look the
conductor and brakeman tn charge
and marred them to the rear or thc
coach keeping them prisoner while a
pal, said to be quite youthful aud
dressed In a khaki Norfolk suit, wearing a cowboy hat, went through tlie
passengers' pockets, both robbers
commanding all to remain quiet.
Chinamen who were among the oue
hundred passengers aboard the (rain
were terribly flrlghtencd 'and crouched In their seats and under them, Issuing queer cries nf four at every
move of the robbers.
Women were not molested, but the
men were pretty thoroughly sen relied
for money and valuables, It being estimated Ihat about $600 was Rfcured,
along with several wntches.
'TTho women." said a passenger to
the Herald, "remained quite calm, as
much so as the men, nnd some who
grasped the situation when thc gun
, men appeared In the coach very cleverly concealed their valuables and
without a murmur awaited the coming of the man who held in one hand
a bad looking gun, and went through
Sunday morning last about 12-20
a.m-, while Mrs. Egan, night operator
ut the Kootenay Telephone office was
at work as usual, she was surprised
to hear someone enter the place from
an adjoining room. Knowing thftt
the custom of those leaving at midnight was to see the latch on the door
was locked, site immediately took In
the situation, ,and on investigating
she was confronted by a man, who It
said, when she asked him what he was
doing there, Informed her "be had
come to see her." Having wisely
worked her way between tbe intruder and the door she made her way
out to the street, and rushing in the
direction of Baker Street met Bert
Matson, and told him ot the occurrence. Mr. Matson accompanied her
to the office, but could uot see the man
anywhere. He remained while Mrs.
Egan got the police over the phone
and Patrolman Johunon appeared on
tbe scene, ami investigating, could
not And anyone, but did, tt Is said, lo-
ate thc catrftsee through which the
intruder had got in — a window easily reached through tbe street by a
laddeo- which was placed there.
Patrolman Johnson made a thorough investigation and Informed Mrs.
Egan lie would be at headquarters-
Later she culled him, and responding
to tlie call and making further search,
he located a man named William Evans, who it is said came in from Sjmj-
kane on Saturday's train. Evans was
crouching in a corner on a roof adjoining.
Ho was taken to jail and Chief Adams communicated with. Evans said
he had been drinking U. S- moonshine,
and then got some Canadian moonshine nt Yahk, He was under the
Influence of liquor when arrested, and
apparently dazed. On Sunday morn-
fug Magistrate Leask released Evans
on $60 bond for his appearance on
Montlay. He put in an appearance,
ana answered to the charge of being
drunk and disorderly laid against blm
when arrested, and was lined $60 and
released. He left the city for Edmonton, to which place be was en
route when he stopped off here, and
where he was at one time located.
Mrs. EfeAU was terribly frightened,
and has since the occurrence been
compelled to remain away from her
duties because of the nervous shock
sho suffered.
It Is to bo regretted that the penalty for such rases is not more sev-
Owing to a complication of cireum-
stun"os that hns arisen, the directors
)f tie Agricultural Association have
decided fo abandon the Idea of holding an lOast Kootenay Pair here this
your. This decision was definitely arrived nt In the course of a meeting
held this week. To overcome the difficulties which have arisen would mean
that it would be Impossible to hold
'ho fair on the date previously determined upon, and so the project has
been abandoned for this year, with the
hope that next year things will be in
such shape as to allow the fair to be
sitceofcsfully revived.

No attention whatever was paid to
the women, but Uot a man was overlooked. Some of Ihe men, accompanied by ladies, handed their valua-

Financial Problem and Other
Weighty  Reasons When
as the Cause
Ottawa. —- Tl'.e capital has relapsed
iuto its old time midsummer mood, being quite unconcerned over events.
One would hardly think that one
Prime Minister hud stepped out and
that another had taken his place; Mint
Union Government had been replaced
by another called the Natlonal-Ubcr-
al-Conservatlve. There Is not a ripple on the surface. Things are going
on as ever; as for tlie business and Industrial world, one would think that
nothing had happened.
. It Is probably well tiiat Canadians
ike political changes so easily; that
ey make so little fuss over them,
'ertulnly such un attitude saves a
great deal of worry, expense and tho
like- It is In marked contrast to the
»reat to-do In the United States ovar
j, possible change In government,
which, In reality contains a great denl
of pretence. Canadians are fast getting over the idea that to change the
government means the taking of a
chance on national disaster. When
a big business interest circulates the
story that if a certain government
goes out and another comes in. tt is
assuredly for the purpose of producing an effect that will rebound to
their, own advantage.
It Is questionable whether there ever was a change, of Prime Ministers iu
''anada that wns attended with so few
mtward manifestations of change as
this last one- The ministry does not
seem to be worrying over Its position
—three-quarters of the ministers ore
away, with tlie prospect of only a
.cry small number being at the cap!
tal between now and September.
The West during the next six weeks
will get a glimpse of both the new
Prime Minister and tlie leader of the
opposition. The former's old home
town, St. Mary's, Is very eager to honor Its distinguished son, and will tender him a big reception, after which
Mr- Melghen will go as far west as
Portage la Prairie anyway, where another big reception is awaiting. Both
places are important milestones in his
career; ln the first he grew up; In the
second he entered upon his life's
At Portage they tell some good stories about the Prime Minister's ab-
sentmlndedness, some of which are almost too good for publication. A
very good one comes from St. Mary's.
As a boy the Prime Minister player
baseball, having pitched a little and
taken his turn In the outfield. A
story goes that one day while playing the latter position, a ball was hit
over his head, but young Melghen was
so lost in thought that he failed to realize what had happened and allowed
someone else to field the ball. Incidentally he thus tost his place on the
Importance has been atached to the
fact that the Prime Minister's first
trip out of town wan to Montreal,
where he went ostensibly to look over the harbor and Incidentally addressed a number of members of the board
of trnde- Whether he did any political bunnens It 1s Impossible to say-
N'o one could very well blame him If
he did. There Is much of It to be
being held again Bt Mr. Melghen that
on the surface, is as cold to him as It
used to be to Sir Robert Borden, lt
being held against Mr. Meghen tbat
he put the Military Service Act through
Parliament. Time, doubtless, will be
the great healer.
There has been o grent deal of talk
about Sir tamer Oouln's Intentions.
Three weeks ago or so some people
were sure that Sir Lomer would become Prime Minister. That was as
wild a notion as anything could be;
able that he would risk his future by
.. change of front There are some
tilings that some men cannot do, even
If to do so is their heart's desire- This
is particularly true of the political
leaders In Quebec.
The abolition of wheat control and
the return to open trading has naturally given rise to a very great deal
of comment, and surprised many. On
the surface it did not look as though
control would be continued; but lt
seems as If tlte government caucus
understood thut this was on tlie understanding that conditions rendered
it absolutely necessary. No statement lias been mode by tlie government of the reasons for the change,
but it is not difficult to conclude what
they are.
There Is a natural desire to get
away from government control of buB
I ness. Control of wheat was the
lust thing over which the government
exercised Its authority, and there was

INVERMERE, B.C.,. August 4—
Preparations are no<jv under full
swing for the public reception of the
membtrs of the Impeflut Press Association who, together with their
ladies to tlie number of 1.10 all told,
are to visit this part on the afternoon
of Monday, thc 23rd of August. They
are due to arrive in two special
trains in the early afternoon and will
spend the balance of It In this neighborhood.
A tentative programme has been arranged which amongst other forms
of pleasure and amusement will take
that of motor boating, swimming In
the warm waters of Lake Windermere, igolfing, examining the Experimental Station of tbe Dominion Oovernment and other less strenuous features of entertainment- The proceedings will be closed with a tea
which will be tendered to all visitors j
on the grounds of the Golf Club at
tho Community bouse of the Lake
Windermere camp.
As this is the first ptteptlon that
will iik.-i,x be teuaered them after entering this province, invitations have
been sent nut to some of the representative men of the Southern part
of British Columbia, and to the leading members of tiie press, to be present as the districts guests. Special
Invitations have been sent to the members of the neighboring Boards of

the grounds set off with some Indian

hunters gathered in a miniature camp

pretty well loaded up with good ploying talent, boasting the possession of
an A-l battery from the I right lights
of Calgary, and they enjoy the reputation of having come nut on the big

A hold up nearer home than the
one which occurred on the CP.R. at
Sentinel station, and which was even
more amateurish than ttie one on the
railway was pulled off about 11 o'clock
Saturday night last at Camp No. 2 of
the Crow's Nest Pass Lumber Com-
my at Skookumchuck. j
When the hold up' was first reported
here it was said about |2000 bad been
secured by the robbers and that the
paymaster had been robbed.
I-Ater it was learned that in one
of the bunk houses there some of the
workmen were having a little friendly
gumo of poker wheu three strange
men wearing mosquito netting for
masks entered and Interrupted the
name and busted the Jnck-.pot completely for every fellow grabbed for lt
at tlie same time, scattering the jackpot over thc floor. The jack-pot is
said to huve heen a good sixed one,
being decorted with several $20 Williams-
The hold up men entered in a
crouching position; one had two dangerous looking guns, while the other
twe only presented one gun each.
The men were ordered to stand up
and hold up their hands and the trio
proceeded to search them and tho
place for money.
Mike Dflly, one of the workers was
■ii his bunk and tba bold ups
awakened hi maad demanded his cola,
Mike being compelled to hand over an
even $105.25 of perfectlty good hard-
earned coin ot the realm.
The robbers demanded to know of
one of the players where his money
was, the player coolly Informing tbe
hold up "you know where mine Is always—on the table."
About $215-00 was secured by tbe
holdups un some of the money on the
able which was knocked to the floor
was brushed under the bunks by the
men with their feet as they were
frisked about during the searching.
Also, the robbers secured three pay
hecks and four watches,
lt is said the desperadoes were observed approaching the camp early ln
thc evening, but nothing was thought
to be pending out ot the ordinary run
of things at the camp for men are almost constantly coming In.
It Is also stated that one of tbe fellows wore goggles under the mosquito
After completing the work of holding up the workers and robbing them,
the men backed out ot the bunkhouae
and fled down the railroad track.
The workers got a good look at them
.ind after the alarm was given they

night they Informed the police they
had located two of the men and with
the police went to tbe place where the
men were last seen and the two suspects were placed under arrest and
kicked up. At a hearing before Magistrate John Leask Wednesday morning
the two fellows .who gave their names
as Dan Qulrick, aged about 25, and
Pete Luzuk, alias Trotsky, aged about
to years, were remanded for another
Both men under arrest were well
supplied with money. The police are
on the trail of the third member of
the suspected gang, and declare they

J. R. Stringer, a well-known char-
actre about the olty, who sometimes
has been known to work ln the lumber camps, got a fool notion in his
head Tuesday that tho fine typewriter
at tlie G.W.V.A. headquarters belonged to him. Securing a gunny-sack,
the fellow proceeded to the Q.W-VA-
offlces and loaded up the machine and
made away with it, going to the Star
Second Hand store and offering lt for
sale to Proprietor Kllby for $4000
Mr. Kllby was not to be trapped and

of his suspicions. Chief Adams, was
on the ground when Stringer put In

ll S. Shields, who has been the efficient principal of the Central school
In Cranbrook for some years, tendered
his resignation to the Board of School
Trustees lost week, having received
a flattering offer ot a similar post ln
tlte   New   Westminster  schools.
The resignation was considered at
a special meeting of the trustees held
on Monday and a resolution was iu-*"-
ed to the effect that it Mr. Shields
•oul.l supply a suitable substitute, the
board  would accept   his  resignation
Mr. and Mrs. Shields returned last
week from a sojourn at the coast and
it was while absent from tbe city that
Mr.  Shields  received the .offer.
There are a number of nsmee now
before tiie Board as possible successors to Mr. Shields, and a special
meeting of the trustees Is being held
this evening (Thursday) when the
appointment of a new principal will
likely be mode.
J. E- Jay. of Rossland, one ot the
applicants for the position, baa been
at Klmberley lately, and will be present to meet the trustees at their meeting this evening.
At a special council meeting held
last Thursday evening Mayor Genest
made a verbal report on behalf ot the
committee delegated to make an offer
from thc city on the electric light
The re ror t as submitted recommen
ded that two proposals be submitted
to the ratepayers; one for tbe purchase outright of the plant at a figure
of $57,360; the second tbat the Light
Co. be authorised to charge for current on a basis of cost of operation
(including depreciation) plus ten per
.rent*, subject to revision every three
months. The Mayor also intimated
that while the company would not accept payment in full In bonds a^kr,
they were prepared to take de-b-aYure
at the market value-
There was considerable discussion on
this, and finally on a motion offered
by Alderman MacKinnon, seconded by
Alderman Dunn, lt was decided to pnt
only one proposal to the people at a
time, to avoid confusion in the Issue.
The By-Law to be voted oo one week
from next Tuesday, therefore, is just
oo tbe straight question ot purchase.
On a motion by Aldermen Balment
and Jones, It was decided that Mr.
Donald, of Fernle, manager of the Alberta and B. C Power Co., be Invited
to meet with the Council for the purpose of settling some details In connection with the proposed coming of
Imt company's lines to Cranbrook.
Company, Limited, to sell Its plant to
the City of Cranbrook- This decision was definitely reached at the
meeting of the City council on Tuesday evening at which Mayor Genest
(arriving later) and Aldermen Balment, Flowers, Eakln, Dunn, MacKinnon and Jones were present.
At the opening of the meeting, Alderman Macklnnou was uppolnted to
act as chairman till the arrival of
Mayor Genest.
The by-law, providing for an issue
of J60.0OO.OO twenty year debentures,
read and finally approved without alteration from its original form
and Is printed in another column ot
Die Herald today-
Next came the contruct from the
lighting company for the ok. ot the
council, but it was thought by Bome
of the aldermen that the contract
should set forth a complete Inven-
ory of what the city was to get In
the event tbe proposition wae approved by the ratepeyera.
An inventory of the plant waa sub-
mit-d by Alderman Eakln and thla
was embodied In the contract which
is also published in the Herald today.

supt. Pennefather, of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, "or they may
be away back In the hills where our

a big, rough country they are In."
In some quarters the opinion Is expressed thot the men made straight
for the border. Even If they got across their capture would not be an

Only about one-sixth of theae three

The prospective purchaser who relies
on his own sources of information

These lists give u short description

great value of such information Is that
it places tlie intending purchaser directly iu touch with those who, for one

Surely one of the most Hag-
rant instances of post-war pro*
tearing is tbat brought to light
by tbe recent action of the Lake
of tbe Woods Milling Co. in declaring a dividend of 25 per
cent., and that in addition to a
regular quarterly dividend of 3
per cent., and a cash bonus of
10 per cent, at least once a year.
Forty-seven per cent, does not
seem much of a return on an in
Vestment, does it? Apparently
it strikes the directorate of the
company as going a little too
strong, however. They must
be given credit for that, for they
are adopting the time honored
expedient of cutting a nice sized
melon for the shareholders, iu
the form of a new issue of stock
which will be distributed in the
ratio of one share to four original shares held, this stock
bonus distribution just taking
the place of the twenty-five per
cent, divident it was proposed
• to pay out.
"We lived up to every requirement of the government during
the time our business was under their control," says an official of the company, who seems
to think that some kind of explanation is due to the public on
a deal of this kind. They may
have done so, but a mere consumer dreads   to   think what
Mild have been the result if
'here had been no government
rol, superficial even though
11 seema to have been.
As an antidote for the disguBt
ie teels at reading   of   such
i tameless profit-gouging from
the consumer's pocket, it is refreshing to learn of the action
of Sir Edward Kemp, who ha::
been serving the country as overseas minister in connection
with militia matters ln England It will be understood
quite readily that this position
'i quite onerous during the
ar period and subsequently
Ihe time of reconstruction. The position carried re-
nuneratlon in proportion to Its
mportanee, but Sir Edward,
'hout the least fuss, or ever
iking any announcement of
' !: action, has returned uncash-
od to the Governor-General all
"ilary checks tendered him
'litre the beginning of the war
-priori. Not content, with tbat
he also returns all the checks
tendered him as sessional Indemnity, to which he Is entitled
as a member of parliament. In

"To Hell Wltll FroMs."
Whoever wants to know why there
Is discontent among ordinary people
ln this country, might obtain some lit-,
tlo light by consulting the statement
recently published regarding the Lake
of tho Woods Milling Company.
Tliis concern makes and sells flour,
an article of necessity for everybody.
The price of flour Is supposed to have
been under sonic sort of regulation by
the government, but evidently the control exercised has not been very great,
nor Is the company a believer to any
extent In Sir Joseph Flavelle's famous maxim, "to hell wltll profits."
The company has just announced a
cash dividend ot twenty-five per cent,
and on increase of.its common stock
by $1,750,000. As this new stock ls
distributed among Its shareholders at
liar In the proportion of one share of
new stock to four already held, the
cash dividend iust pays for the stock.
In addition, the company paid a ten
per cent. bonuB last January, and will
pay its regular quarterly dividend at
the rate of twelve per cent, at the
end of August. Any person with a
turn for arithmetic may amuse himself trying to figure out what will be
the market value of the new stock,
wheh It pays forty-seven per cent,
per annum.

Mr. uud Mrs. J. B. -Dowdle, Card-
Bton, Alberto, wort on the hold up
train- They were en route to Portland, Oregon, to spend their vacation.
Seated near tho rear of the first
class couch, Mr. Dowdlo sized up the
situation promptly wheu the bandit
put in an appearance, He had a considerable sum of money in his pocket
and Rlipped this ti his wife after peeling off three bills from the outeido
and warned her to ",put it ln the 'first
national bank.'" Mrs. Dowdlo did as
Instructed, and they were able to continue on their trip from Cranbrook
to Portland-
Mr. Dowrtle in giving his verslou of
the hold up declared there were four
men in the party. He said he somehow thought immediately the first fellow put in an apparance with the passengers and train crew from the smoker that it was a hold u,p. "I thought
of my money and thought I had better donate a little. Remembering I
lunl placed some small bills around
the roll in my trousers pocket I succeeded In removing three of the bills
und placed them In my left hand coat
pocket next Mrs. Dowdle who was
seated near the window. Taking the
balance of the roll I handed it to my
wife unobserved by the bandits and
told her to put it uway. She did so
nlso unnoticed by the robbers.
"When the younger of the men, a
fellow dressed in u khaki Norfolk
cut style or suit, clean shaven and
wearing a cow boy hat, who was doing tlie searching of the passengers
reached me, he commanded me to
stand up. I i-omplieii and he searched me, going first through my trousers pockets, but finding nothing that
appealed to him; next lie put his hand
in my right coat pocket, tlie outside
pocket nnd finding nothing there put
his lioiiu in in.r lBtt uittsirie coat pocket in which was a C-P.R. folder. He
looked through the leaves of the fold
er hurriedly and handed it back to
me, missing the bills In my pocket
with tlie folder.
"I had at tlie same time I got rid
of my money by giving it to m ywlfe,
hurriedly removed my watch and put
it inside the waistband of my trousers. The fellow appeared very nervous; his gun hand and the hand with
which he was doing the searching
shook constantly. He waa a clean
appearing young fellow and I think he
.vas about 26 years of age."
Mr- nnd Mrs. Dowdle said they
had ral her enjoyed the experience, although admitting tbey were a lltle
nervous when the search was being
conducted and the fellow was nearing
ihelr place In the coach. Mr. and
Mrs. Dowdle declared they god a good
look at all the robbers, not only on
the train but after they lined up on
the bank above the coach. "I was
not exposing my head very much/'
Mr. Dowdle said, "but I did venture
to look out at them on tbe bank juit
as ono of the gang fired a shot at the
trnln or over It."
Mr- Dowdle eald an auto wu seen
on tlie opposite, side of the train from
which the robbers alighted, but that
it Is believed this auto was awaiting
the arrival of tbe passengers who
were to get off at Sentinel. He did
not see anyone In the auto.

and hold up my hands, and searching
me, the follow ordered me to sit down."

Time  Conservation   of   These
Resources Was Put on a
Business Basis
Fish und game are a financial asset to any .province, and should be
classed as such. To anyone attending the average provincial legislature
aud witnessing the fight necessary to
Secure a meagre appropriation iu
their behalf, it would appear evident
that the wild life of the province in
(inesticn was u heavy liability and that
tlie taxpayers were being imposed upon when asked to contribute for its
.protection. Conservation must be
londucted oi) ii business basis, and
where this is done tho figures very
quickly prove that it pays a handsome
profit for tlie money invested. Whije
some provinces aro so short-sighted
that they even refuse to expend all
of the hunters license money for
■,'oiiservation. others have awakened to
j what the wild life really Is worth and
aro spending tho amount otthe license
fund and more in tin Interest of fish
and   game.
An example of tills ts the stale of
Now Vork. The sportsmen of that
statu subscribed $250,000 for licenses
In the year 1M9, but the stuto appropriated $1,000,000 for the work of the
conservation board- Think of it! One
million dolh.rs a year for conservation
purposes. It seems Impossible that
a profit could be shown on such an
investment as this. Still, on looking
up data in tbis connection, It is found
that the fBanners' boys :.nd trappers
ftlone realize $1,000,000 on the skunk
skins taken in the state. Tlie greatest benefit, of course, comes lu whole-
some health-civ ing exercise, in recreation aud pleasure, which cannot be
figured In dollars and cents-
From time to time we learn where
this or that province reapproprlated
a part of tho hunters' license money
for purposes entirely foreign to tlie
Interests of the sportsmen-     We are
told that a fight was made In a certain province against the appropria-
] lion which resulted in the game department securing only a quarter of
1 tlie amount .paid In for license fees.
j Again we learn that the entire game
I department   has   been   abolished or
that then  is a movement on foot to

ROSSLAND, B.C.. July 20~Hoss-
land is a miniature city nestling on a plateau two thousand feet
above the Columbia River, It began as a mining camp, but la more
remarkable now for its lovely gardens, orchards and pastures than for
its mining activities. I have never
tasted more delicious peaches and
cherries than those grown here In
the garden of a friend whose home
Is on the edge of the plateau, at an
elevation of three thousand eight
hundred feet above sea-level. All
the vegetables and fruits needed for
the household grow luxuriantly in his
garden. The home stands in a grove
of birch and maple interspersed with
flowers and shrubs.
The mountains ln the South of
Rossland are not so lofty as those
North and West. Mount Roberts,
called after tbe famous Marshall, has
an elevaton of eight thousand feet.
Red Mountain Is a thousand feet lower and Monte Chrlsto to the North
and East Is a*bout live thousand above
sea-level. Standing on the crest of
Monte Chrlsto, the traveller has a
superb view of the typical Kootenaln
sceuerey. To the North and East,
spread before him, like a chart, are
the Arrow Lakes, and the Columbia,
resplendent In the brilliant light of
the midsummer sun. The shadows
of a thousand wuoded hills are reflected in the wnters of the lake and
river. Forests are everywhere from
the water's edge up the precipitous
mountain slopes and on the mountain
tops. "Woods over woods In gay
theatric pride" crowd every glen and
gorge and plateau. The landscape Is
tike an ocean of rolling forests with
giant, rugged, snow-enpped mountain
peaks rising beyond all Into tho deep
blue sky.
The lovers ot beautiful scenery lament the rapidity with which primeval forests are being felled by the
woodman, the pioneer and the prospector.
From Astoria to the Willlametto
River nnd from the Wllllamette to
the Dalles, fanners, orchardlsts, lumbermen and fishermen are all busy'
sweeping the forests away. From
the Dalles to Revelstoke, a distance
of something like seven hundred
miles, groves of cherry trees and
berries and apple orchards and gardens and pasturs are supiantlng the
forests. A few days ago motored to
the North of Revelstoke and found
the pioneer us busy grubbing and
planting aud cultivating as at Hood
River near the Dalles, seven hundred
miles further down the river.
I doubt If the pioneer has ever before beon so busy clearing cut-over
lands ln the rich valleys and on the
shores of the lakes as he Is today.
The high prices paid for fruit, particularly for apples, hus stimulated
tho workers ln the mines aud mills,
to clear small patches of land andj
plant orchards and gardens. Dairy-'
Ing ls also paying better ln the West'
than ever before and dairy cattle
are multiplying while ranch cattle
are decreasing dangerously.
Motoring down the valley from
Revelstoke, I passed through a settlement of colony of Italians. Their
cottages and outhouses were unpretentious and often crude, but vegetable gardens were excellently cultivated aud the orchards good to look
at. And every farmer had fine pasture and dairy cattle. The Italian
youth to whom 1 spoke pointed out
his home and extensive orchards,
meadows and grain fields. His father had approprlatd a lake twelve hundred feet above on the mountain side
and he put ln a pipe-line to the lake,
and this secured un ample supply ot
water for his household, his livestock and for his gardens and orchards. This young Italian, straight
and lithe and handsome enough to be
a lineal descendant of a senuto of ancient Rome, spoko the best of English, nnd he was the sixth or seventh
son In a family of ten boys and three
girls. Most of the members of the
Kalian colony were working on the
railroads or lu the lumber camps or
mines. Their lelmire hours ure devoted to the cultivation of (heir gardens and orchards and the mothers
and children look after the poultry
and cattle. Tlieir people are all becoming excellent citizens, thrifty, Industrious and law-abiding. Further
down the valley a colony of Austrians
ure also hard ut work grubbing and
planting and building themselves
homes ou the hanks of tha Columbia. They too, aro thrifty, hardworking and they are redeeming Ihn wilderness and transforming
it In gardoli, orchard, grain-field and
This is the kind of work which Is
going on from the Flathead Valley
In East Kootenay to Quatsluo Sound
at the farthest end of Vancouver Island. Out there very large deposits
of copper ores have been discovered.
One of tho best of the old mine managers of Quite hns been engaged for
years developing these copper deposits for the Canadian 1'aclDc and he
is convinced that this section of Vancouver Island will yet rival *the Ilutte
District In copper and gold product*
<lon. Doth the ctimato and soil and
forests nf the Quatalno Hound District are ontlrely different from those
of Ilutte.
There grow (be finest spruce, ftr
and cedar ot tbe world, ud wkan
tbey   are   clewed   away,
flowers and meadows flourish. There
too, the woodman, tbe prospector, tbe
miner and the fisherman are all busy
clearing land for farms aud gardeus
and building cottages and homes.
The cities of the West are still
holding the workers. They will not
leave the city to work In a mining
or lumber ramp or on a farm or a
railroad as long as they have a dollar in their pockets to spend. The
hig wages paid In the building trades
and In the shipyards drew them to
the towns and they are loathe to
leave. But gradually, they will get
back to the farm, the mine, the railroad or the lumber camp. There is
plenty of work and golden opportunities for all who wish to work or all
who desire to build themselves homes
aud surround themselves with happy children in the midst of gardens,
fruit trees and flowers. At Tadanac
a few evenings ago I sat on the porch
of a fine cottage built above the flowing tide of the Columbia. The cottage stood ln a grove and a lovely
lawn and flowers. In the rear was a
vegetable garden and fruit trees, on
both sides were other cottages with
their green lawns, flowers and gardens. On the lawn of an adjoining
cottage a group of well-dressed, lovely children were playing. Their peals
of merry laugher mingled with the
sound of the rushing river. Here,
Indeed, was happiness and hope and
the Joy of life and a new world, a
new race and a new civilization being
born, under happier conditions than
the old world has ever known.
Every employee of the chemical
and metallurgical works at Tadanac
can get a plot of land to build a home
and surround lt with a garden of
fruit trees and vegetables. The com*
pany advances enough money to build
the home and provide the building
material at cost. Through this policy a unique industrial city will grow
up at. Tadanac, for the Increase In

Here at Rossland there Is also renewed activity In planting and cultivating and dairying. Rossland began to produce gold and copper In
very considerable quantities twenty-
five years ago. It gave great promise and It bad a famous mining boom.
Since then it has produced about
175,000,000 in gold and copper, but
metallurgical difficulties greatly marred the production. When the War
came and mining costs soared, the
company stopped producing from tts
Rossland mines but kept up Us' development work and Its research for
a way to make better recovery of the
gold In the Rossland ores. That has
been found and a mill to treat dally
fifteen hundred tons of low grade
Rossland ores is now being built at
Tadanac. The high grade gold ores
will go direct to the smelter, but being treated with high grade concentrates, a full rcovery of the gold can
now he accomplished. As soon as
sufficient miners can be had and the
concentrating mill ls ready, Rossland
will ship double the quantity of ore
it has produced at any previous period of its history.
Looking down from the slopes of
Monte Chrlsto, Tadanac la plainly
seen on the hanks of the Columbia
and beside Is the neat little town of
Trail. They are only four miles in a
direct line. The valley of the Kootenay is only twenty miles away. There

u desire to withdraw trom thut. He-
sides, the question was asked, if control of trading in wheat 13 to be continued why not a,pply the same policy
to other Itoes ot business? To answer thia was difficult-
There were undoubtedly other reasons of more or less weight for the
course adopted. There was the financial problem. If the wheat crop
should run from 250 to 300 million bushels, over $500,000,000 might be required to handle it. Continued control would mean that the government
would have to .stand behind the banks.
If u portion of tho wheat were sold on
credit tho government would have to
stand behind the transaction, and It
lias no funds for the purpose. Por
at verul years past it lias hud tlte money, for It has been floating large public loans nil the way from $200,000,-
000 to $700,000,000. But the borrowing policy has been abandoned- It
is improbable that over $150,000,000
of lasl year's Victory Loan is still on
hand and this is required to meet maturing obligations.
Continued wheat control would have
meant a minimum .price, which, with
a huge crop, suoh as is now apparently in sight, would Imply the as
sumlng of a much greater risk than
wan assumed last year. There is also a very groat deal of uncertainty
over the price, probably more than
there was a year ugo; for the world
Ih a year further on with the work of
reconstruction, which la hound to
mako <>. difference in the amount of
grain avallablo. With such a crop
us seems to bo in prospect, the government naturally is rather chary of
taking on further guarantees; for the
heavier the yield and the higher tho
price ihe greater tlie risk. How
government tbat Ib facod with a loss
of $50,000,000 on tlie operation of the
railways last year, and that is confronted with another $50,000,000 of
expenditure for wuge increases rather shies at taking on anything new
cun he understood.
Out. effect of the o-baudonmeut of
wheat control will be the testing of
tho free wheat policy. If there is
much in it this year's experience
should demonstrate it. There Is considerable conjecture over the quant
ity of tiiis year's crop that will go
south. One is inclined to the view
that tlie proportion will be large; for
aside from freo wheat, the rate of exchange, ranging as it does from 13 to
15 per cent.. Is a strong inducement to
Btlip to the I*. S- A- Tho question arises who will profit by the exchange:
Will it Iw the fanners or tiie grain
dealers? If 50,000,000 bus. should go to
the United States at $2.50 a bushel
this would amount to $125,000,000. The
rate of exchange will hardly be less
than 13 per cent., and may be 16; at
the former price the exchange alone
would mean an evtra profit of $16,000,-
000.     Who will get lt?
From tlie standpoint ot Canadian
trade lu general, more depends upon
tho crop this year ilia* the average
person realizes. Today Imports are
exceeding exports at the rate of about $25,000,000 a mouth, Uie adverse
balance of trade so far tliis year being $130,000,000. At the present rate
of going, by the end of September It
will be $200,000,000. Nothing but a
large crop ot wheat will enable the
country to do anything like break
even on tho year's trading.
AU tills brings homo to the financial and Industrial leaders of the
country tho Importance of the farm-
lug industry. Manufacturers may be
enterprising, but today they cannot
sell their goods In Europe because the
rate of exchange Is so heavily against the European countries that they
cannot afford to buy from Canada anything but lndlapensablo products. A
certain amount of food they must have
which makes wheat so Important.
The big men of the country know this,
and It no wonder that the farmer la
becoming of greater importance politically. The western tiller of the
soil will however, have to pay a great
deal of attention to tho matter of
freight rates; for with their .present
tendency to advance they seem to I

Report   of  Minister  of  Mines
Slonn Shows Falling Off
in Production
That tlie monetary value of the
mineral output for the year in British Columbia for the year 1919 was
$32,200,313, as compared with $41,-
782,474 for 1918, Is shown by the ofiicial figures given iu the annual re-
purl of the minister of mines, just issued, and now available for distribution.
The decrease, while considerable,
is not serious when placed against
tlie greater decline in mineral production, shown by returns from the
various states south of the line where
the mineral industry Is an important
factor, ln fact, from this viewpoint
it is Indicated that this province did
not feci to tho same extent the falling
ofl in demand for metals following
the cessation ot war.
Ouo interesting feature is the increase shown in silver production, reflecting the Increased quotations for
tlie metal, and to some extent the
opening up of promising northern
fields. Another feature worthy of
note, but not of such an encouraging
nature, especially from an Industrial
standpoint, is the marked decline in
coke manufacture, That, however,
no doubt will be remedied us new
mining projects now in the development stage are further advauced.
The report Includes the usual detailed accounts of mining activity dur
Ing the year ln tlie several districts
of the province hy the several real
dent engineers.

Shortage of Help Acute in Both
Home and Fields —A Plea
for   Oriental  Labor
Invermere B.C., July 27th 1920. —
The whole community here Is crying
out for help to relieve the congested
condition ot the labor market, not ao
much of the skilled or urtizan class,
nor yet of the ordinary labor class,
but of the kind that works upon tba
farm and does tbe domestic work and
chores about the house. The stage
is becoming very critical. It ls ao
bad in lure at the present time tbat It
is almost au Impossibility to get the
ordinary laundry work of tho house-
liold performed. Long ago tho devoted women of tho community gave over the idea of obtaining assistance ln
tho way of scrubbing and mopping ot
floors, and long ago they cunie to the
point whc.ro they did tlie lighter clonics washing nt homo; but in this trying hot weather lt is getting beyond a
joke when the heavier washing has
lo ho faced in addition to the otlier duties of the household such aa baking
tlie bread, doing the cooking and tbo
raising of children. It lias even coma
to the point wliere laundry work for
tlie Institutions has to lay for weeks
without attention. Wages for the
long-sutTerlng Oriental have gone beyond all possible limits even to tbe
extent of employees required for the
keepers of the Chinese laundries.
Hundreds ot acres of land whlcb
might by the importation of Oriental
labor bo brought under cultivation,
are obliged to remain In their wild
state, while the H. C. L. Is increased
owing to the fact that this small dls-

Chautauqua Presents Mew Angles on Mexican Situation
That Mexico is not clearly understood, even hy the Americans across

tlie belief of W. L- Mel linger, lecturer
at Chautauqua on the sixth afternoon.
Mellinger does not hold any brief
for Mexican*, but lie does make clear
a lot of things that are little'understood about this country to the
south, and"which makes one regard
with more tolerance the underpaid and
underfed peons of Mexico. 1
' Mellinger has spent many years
across the Rio Grande and Knows the
people of the strife-ridden little coun-'
try through  and through.      He has
boon in intimate contact with practically all tlie men of affairs of Mexlcco
who have been prominent in the political unrests, such as Huerta. Car-

Some few yeari ago at the head ot
Tod Inlet on Southern Vancouver It-
land there yawned an enormoua excavation- like a gigantic wound on
the face of nature. The cement works
nearby bad removed from this spot
thousands of tona of aand and sbale
for utllitatlon In tbe manufacture of
cement, and it would be hard to conceive of a more desolate ipot than
these dry, grey acres which looked
dead beyond resuscitation Not a
blade of grass grew there, not a
trickle of water laved the taping
thlrstlneai of It, not a bird lent Hi
note acroaaits waste, even tbe un-
fastidious crows'disdainfully ignored
• lt. A hundred feet above lt tbe woods
were green enough, and forest flowers thrived in fragrant profusion, but
no wind-wafted seeds could take root
ln the dry sand and clay of tbe inona-
troua grave; tbey withered and died
for want of sustenance, and because
of tbe charm of the wooded glades
above, tbe excavation looked all tbe
more Incongruous and unsightly.
Today that same Incongruity bas
become one of the moat lovely garden
spots In the whole length and breadth
of America, not excluding tbe fam-
oiw gardens of southern California.
It ls the Mecca of thousands of tour-
ista every year, and aa there is no
real winter weather on favoured
south Vancouver Island, tbe garden
Jjlooma practically the whole year
How waa thla miracle accomplished T Man's Ingenuity aided by evar-
gracloua Nature, ia tbe answer.
Black loam by ton* was carried Into
the excavation, packed up against
the clay-hanks, and around the rocks,
placed in thick layers all over the
levels, and In the very heart of the
huge holt, water waa fed from a
Sato,   nr fttova tha banks in the

verted to toss down over tbe side of
the thirsty clay ln a clean, bright fall
that splMhed Into the lake. A huge
pinnacle of rock that stood In the
centre of tbe barren acres was
banked with rich »oll, while tbe same
■oil was placed in all or Its boles
and crannies. Rock stairways were
built from the rim of excavation
down Into tbe place itself, a hundred
walks, and by-paths and stretcbee or
lawn were mapped out. and great
beds made. Rustic bridges were
built across tbe lake, and the str-.-am
itself, and then the seeding and
planting began. Scores of men were
employed tn tbe first stages of the
work, and expert landscape gardeners, for not only was the excavation to be made into a great sunken
garden, but tbe ground above, which
bad been cleared, was to be laid out
ln lawns, a rose-garden, a tea-garden, and a combination of Japanese
and fairy garden. More little stream*
from the woods were moved Into tbis
upper garden and nourished from
underground pipes, to send up rainbow fountains here and there. Avenues of hawthorns and other ornamental trees were planted and a
thousand feet or more of pergolas
built. A large tea-bouse and a balf
a score of other little summer-
houses, all of tbe most artistically
ruatic design. were scattered
throughout tbe different gardens, and
every flower and shrub that grows
found Its home there. The pergolas
were hung with cllmbin* mses, tbe
tea-house graced In clematis and
wistaria, and each little summer-
house had Its own individual garment
of colour.
This upper garden Is the first one
to be traversed by the Visitor, and
