Writeup of Province Hade for Special Edition
of Toronto Globe
.coining in the work of turning the
eyes of Kustcrn Canada to the wonderful dormant possibilities of the
Groat West the Toronto (Holm on
Saturday, April 5th, issued a splendid pictorial special edition descriptive of the resources of Western Canada. The issue is replete with [
beautiful half tones of scenes from
city, Held, forest and mine and contains a comprehensive review, of the
growth, development and future possibilities of the Great West. The!
following is an extract from an article on Hritish Columbia, containing
a review of the principal industries:    |
It has taken over twenty centuries
of exploration, conquest and commerce to complete the westward
march of empire. Phoenicia and
Rome could not find a farther west
than the extreme narrow confines of
the Mediterranean, 0r thc small, seagirt islands of Britain', and the world
did not know there was a real,wcst-|
ern hemisphere until Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492.
It was not until nearly three hundred years after the accomplishment
of Columbus, in thc year 1771,
that Juan Perez, also from the
Court of Spain, found the far northwestern coast of America, now Hritish Columbia, on whose shores and
within whose mountainous interior
are being enacted just today the last,
scenes of man's persistent westward
march. One hundred and thirty-nine
years have passed since the lirst
white man sighted Hritish Columbia,
and yet who is there to say that he
knows that province, even at this
date? Ils story has not been half
told, and its future, like its highest
mountain peak, is far beyond the
clouds, in the realm of mystery.
Captain Vancouver was really tho
first- man to bring tlu* present British
Columbia before thc world. In 1782
he sailed along the Pacific coast, ami
made an extensive and important
geographical survey. Then, in 1708,
Alexander Mackenzie and a party of
fur traders belonging to thc Northwest company, which became such a
bitter rival of the Hudson's Bay
the Northwest fur traders and the
after a long journey through tlie
mountains. For iwvtity-ritdit years
beasts and savage mon to a veritable
Hudson's Hay company competed
bitterly wilh each other, ami the
amalgamated, establishing a series of
Hudson's Hay pi sis throughout the
territory now owned In tbe province.
At thai time tin* onlj produel ol
"New Caledonia," as thai mountainous section was then called, was
fins.       All   the    while   the Hudson's
Hay company held New Caledonia under lease from i'hc British government, and iu is io, largely as n result of the efforts of the company,
Vancouver Islam! was proclaimed ii
Hritish Colony, although tin- Influx of
white Bottlers had been vcr\.slow
(►tie day, in tin* vent 1858, gold was
discovered    on     I In* mainland,     ami
proved  to Ihi    the  loadstone which
first attracted close attention to
Hritish Columbia. Thousands o
treasure hunters anil settlers rtisht*
in from the southern portions nf the
Pacific coast, und very soon Import*
iinl changes were made iu the nation
al status of old New Caledonia. Th
territory was created a crown col
ony,   with    responsible government
ami called British Columbia. Law
were enacted nnd enforced in accord
ance with Hritish precedent; roads
and trails were made to the varioii
"diggings"'; civic, educational a»d religious Institutions weie established
and Hritish Columbia changed In the
eyes of the world from a vast hyperborean wilderness inhabited by wild
ish Cylumbia numbered slightly over
mecca to be occupied by an army of
sturdy pilgrims from all parts of the
world. Thus, British Columbia's,
present premier industry—that of
mining—was started, and with it the
first big step towards developing
the natural resources oi the province.
At this time the population ol Hritish Columb.n numbered slightly over
ten thousand.
This vast area of Brilisli Columbia
is mostly covered,by forest, but
within as\wcll as without the wooded regions, there are extensive deposits of minerals and millions of acres
oi agricultural lands. Tlie rivers,
lakes and coast waters of British Columbia are also well stocked with
Jish. From (hew four sources ot
wealth have nriaeu lour very flourishing    industries,,    mining, lumbering.
fishing and farming, mid the development along these lines in tho short
period of twenty-five years has b-cen
wonderful indeed, Mining, as has
been said already, was the first factor in the industrial career of British Columbia. Tlie needs of the- miners when the rush began in 1858 encouraged other ventures, and in due
time the timber and fisheries became
nearly equal in importance to the
gold mines of the province. Agriculture was not considered for many
years, nnd even today the agricultural resources of British Columbia arc
not being utilized as they should he;
but of this more shall be said in another paragraph. At the present
time, or rather according to the latest records of 1312 at the time of
this writing, tlie industries, in the
order of their worth to British Columbia, witli their respective values,
are as follows:
1311. 1912.
Mining    $23,211,816   $32,600,000
Timber  24,823,000    28,000,000
Agriculture . 20,837,593 22,000,000
Fisheries    .... 11,000,000     11,000,000
The other districts, well known for
tlieir mining industries, and now tbe
most productive- oi their kind in all
of northwestern America, are the
Kootenays. Kast Kootenay forms
the southeastern portion of British
Columbia, and is famed for. the immense, coal measures through which
the Crow's Nest Pass railway operates for many miles, both in Alberta
and British Columbia. These mines
have an almost inexhaustible supply
ol the best bituminous coal in the
world. .It is said that the Crow's
Nest mines are capable of producing
ten million tons annually for seven
thousand years. At present the
operators are content, with a.million
tons every year. The beautiful Columbia and Windermere valleys, with
their splendid fertile tracts of fruit
and grazing lands, are included in the
Mast Kootenay district. West Kootenay, containing the Kootenay and
Arrow l,ake on the west, and includes Trail, Nelson and Rossland, all
familiar names in the department of
mines. Both Kcotenays, together
with the Boundary region, which lies
iu the most southerly part of the
Vale district, produce the great proportion of the mining output oi British Columbia. During 1912 tlie
Kootenay-Hotindary mines produced
metals, coal and coke to tin* value ol
$17,0011,111)0, as compared with $13,-
000,000 in 1911, ami out of a total
production for the province valued at
Lumbering from certain points ol
view is the important industry of
British Columbia. For one thing,
the largest. Compact nie;i of merchantable limber in North America is
possessed by the Pacific toast province. In these flays of ruthless
slaughter in thc. forests ol the continent, British Columbia has, in her
magnificent pine forests, an nsset
which will probably bring greater n>-
tlitns in due time than any other of
her possessions. Already limber and
pillpWOod form the basis for Hritish
Columbia's largest manufactories.
Then, in a way, any great agricultural progress whieh the people of
the province will lie able to make is
Immediately Involved in the lumbering industry, because much of lhe cul
livable land now lying dormant beneath heavy pine trees must 1m* clear'
ed if Hritish Columbia intends to
make of itself a self-sustaining, prosperous country. At the present
time it is estimated that the forest
area of Hritish Columbia is 182,000,-
000 acres, with u lumber capacity ot
360 billion feet.
The entertainment given in aid oi
the above -institution on Wednesday
evening, April 2nd, was an unqualified success and was given great
support, the hall lieing crowded, the
result financially being most encour-
aring to the board Tin- numbers
given by the choir, under Dr. Maxwell, were all encored, and special
mention must lie made of the
"Dainty Domestics," hy the school
Children, the actions of tlie children
evoking much amusement. ■ Miss Cur-
ley's song "Beloved, it is Morn," as
also Mrs. Richardson's "Tht Rosary"
both called forth the amount of applause they merited. "The Admiral's Broom," given by Mr. (1.
R. Kvans was also heartily appreciated, and the audience were more
than delightful with the numerous
sont-is of Dr. H. B. Maxwell, who
proved his versatility in these and in
the farce which wound up the concert "Rlighted Buds." Miss A.
Woodland, as "Drusilla Durham,"
the. "Blighted Bud," carried iter part
through splendidly, her make-up being
especially good. Mrs. F. Binmore,
as "Mrs. Hypatia Harrington Hitchcock," made a-, most fascinating widow, and her advice to Miss Drusilla
Durham on tbe matrimonial question
created great merriment, Miss Lassie
as the Irish maid and Mr. Kvans as
her swain, Pat Maloney,1 were true
natives of the Emerald Isle. The
romantic Miss* Angelina Harrington
was Impersonated charmingly by
the adventurous r.nd amorous Mrs. J.
O. Tannhauser. John Smith, a
drummer, was impersonated well hy
Dr. Maxwell, and Mr. Innocent as
professor Peter Palman, a former
suitor of Miss Durham's. Mr. .1. O.
Tannhauser as Sir Roger O'Trammel
both filled their parts splendidly. The
entertainment was attended by many
friends from Cranhrook, Bull River
and other points and tlie dance, the
music for which was generously discoursed by the orchestra and other
friends, was kept up till an early
Somewhere about the first of May
tlie new brewery in Slaterville will
commence operations. Tlu* new build-
mg which was erected by Contractors Christian and .lones, has
been completed and the machinery is
now lieing rapidly installed. The new
concern is operated under thc name
ot the Cranbrook Brewing company
and is backed largely by local capital. The active management is in
the hands of Andrew Midler and
Harry Hesse, formerly owners of tlie
Moyie brewery at Movie.
The new building is three stories
in height 36x50 . feet in size and in
addition to the main building, a cold
storage plant 50x30 has been erected. The water is supplied by a deep
well sunk by the company and is
pumped with a steam pump. An ice
house with several hundred tons of
ire already stored will .provide for
additional cooling service for the
warm weather.
The brew kettle has a capacity of
thirty-five barrels per day and tho

capacity, as they have ample storage
capacity in flic vats and anticipate a
trade commensurate with thc full
capacity of the plant.

The directors are preparing a large
number ol special prizes In each department which will be cnmpli ted before the publication of the ofilulnl list
and will be announced throiigh thc
Herald later. A special feature will
be made of the baby show, thc prizes
being announced later.
The public generally should appreciate the efforts of the directors in
compiling tlie list so early in tlie season and providing for its being placed before the attention of everyone in
the district in time so that -ill may
prepare exhibits for compeihig in
the various sections and classes.

Tlie regular meeting of thnJPoultry
association last hlidaj ■<-\\-mu^
brought out about twenty-live chicken cranks. After the regular business of Ihe evening was concluded
Mr. Dunham took charge of the
meeting and discussed Wyandottes
wilih four White birds and two Columbians before him.
Mr. Dunham, who is strictly a utility man, placed his greatest stress
on those points and qualities of Hie

A supplementary meeting of the
Poultry association will be h?ld on
Friday, the 18th inst., at the old
gymnasium, when Mr. Dunham will
give a talk mi "Care of Young
Chicks," a topic that ought to bring
out a large number.
Last .Sunday evening the choir of
the Presbyterian church rendered the
service of song entitled "His Moth

the pen of the famous Ian Maclareru,
and the musical setting by J. H.
Merridilh. Mr. Atchison, the school
principal, read the story most effectively, holding the 'large audience-
spellbound throughout the service.
The choir excelled nil previous records, rendering lhe musical performance in magnificent style. Miss

To the Editor:
Dear Sir: May I be allowed to
make an urgcnl appeal through your
columns in regard to one of the most
vital questions before the Canadian
people— tlie construction ot tlio much-
needed maendam highway from ocean
to ocean.
My 1912 transcontinental motor
tour from Halifax to Victoria in tho
interests of this Trans-Canadian
Highway was, I undersland, the lirst
attempt to cross the country by automobile- Owing to the K.ips in thc
"road" in New Ontario and B- C. I
was compelled tn ship my heavy car
many hundreds id miles and to make
immense detours. However, 1 was
able to arouse considerable interest.
Both in the press ami on the platform, the cause of the Irantsconlinen-
tal highway was enthusiastically endorsed. It was felt that a continuous maeaham road from the Atlantic
to thc Pacific would provide a prolific source of national revenue by
opening up the magnificent scenery of
thc Dominion lo motorists and the
international tourist generally, would
introduce capital nnd the highest type
of settler, would throw open and develop inlo a world's playground lhe
uniqnc Lake Superior and Lake of
the Woods country, would unite east
ami west, and would Induce the construction of good highways everywhere as the result of this one    line
The interest, once aroused, should
not he allowed In flag. Practical!
example is fully as importanl as organization before we can hope in gel
co-operation between ihe different
provinces and move Hie Dominion
government to support ;l policy of
federal aid in trunk road construc-
Dependent upon rnlslng the necessary funds, 1 propose in organize an
expedition nl once and, with two
suitable motor ears and equipment,
to motor all Ihe way across Canada
regardless of ibe existence or nonexistence of roads, taking with me
a press representative., photographer-
cinematograph 1st, mechanical experts
and one or two mounted scouts for
New Ontario and B. ('. I further
propose tr, organize public meetings
fur the sij;!iinK of a petition for presentation to the Dominion government, and to arrange for demonstrations of motorists all along lhe line.
I hope In have the co-operation oi
mayors, boards of trade anil the various motor clubs, as well as the patronage id some of the premiers.
This appeal for aid to the expedition is earnestly addressed In every
motorist in Canada who is a lover oi
the road and who has a patriotic interest in Canadian development,
About $7,Mm are needed for lhe pur
chase ol cars and equipment and to
meet general expenses of a three to
four :*,onths loin. If towns through
their corporations, boards ot trade oi"
motor clubs, would kindly contribute
a small iolu, lhe money would soon
be raised. Falling that, I am not
without' hope thai some geucrous-
spirilrd man ar group of men will
come forward and provide me with
the necessary backing.
Canada needs Ihis great transcon-
ental highway at once! There is ;l
roadless gap( of one thousand miles
In the very heart of the country—a
pathless wilderness, a no-man's land
of solitude. No one has ever been
able to cross Manitoba from cast to
west or vice versa, and hundreds of
miles of blind, confusing trails reprc-
sint the Canadian highway in Sas
katchewan and Alberta. So far the
Trans-Canada highway is but a
Yet, that highway will prove to be
the regeneration of Canada. It will
provide that artery of communication
through 'which will course the life-
blood of the future Canadian nation
Without trunk highways Iberc never
has been and never will he a great
and consolidated nation. Canada is
still without nalionhood'
Compare these conditions with
those prevailing in the south. On a
transcontinental pleasure tour offline
thousand miles in the C.S. I always
found an uninterrupted thoroughfare
whether I motored through the deserts at 500 feet below sea level, or
over tlie Sierras and the Koekies at
9,000 to 10,000 feet above. Iu the
Central States, the painted telephone poles guided me alon^ tbe
transcontinental highway, aud for a
thousand miles I found my road
across the south-west western plains
and over the lofty passes marked by-
stone monuments lovingly
in commemoration of America's pioneer forefathers by lhe patriotic, public-spirited daughters of lhe American
Revolution. What thc D. A. II.'s
have done, surely the Daughters of
the Empire cam do. Many old, historical trails are 'being forever oblitet-
ated in Western Canada. A great, a
noble work, remains for the women
of Canada. May I therefore take
the liberty of directing a special appeal to the gentle sex to throw in
their lot with the men who are
working for the good cause under the
banner of the Canadian Highway association. I trust there is not a
public-spirited woman's organization
In Canada which docs not feel that
if the women of the States can SO
nobly identify themselves witb the
movement for national roads, it cannot afford to let this trans-Canadian
highway remain a dream any longer.
II we are to truly gain the centurj
for Canada, the trans-Canadian highway is a vital necessity of the country's advancement. By carrying ou a
vigorous agitation now, ;i passable
kind of through toad may be ready
in 1917, the year of the semi-centennial of Canadian Confederation
Nothing could.be belter calculated to
quicken the deep current nl Canadian sentiment than the simultaneous'
celebration of the completion of the
highway—the next'logical step, after
Confederation and the construction of
tbe Transcontinental railroads, in the
building up of the body and spirit of
Thomas W. Uilby.

Canadian Pacific Announce at Winnipeg the Building of Three Great Routes to the Coast
Winnipeg, April 8.—The Canadian!
Pacific railway has decided on a
second tunnel in ihy western mountains. This will be sixteen miles iu'
length, the longest, in the world, be-j
ing nearly four-miles longer than the,
famous SimplDu in the Alps and
nearly twice as long as the I.otsch-
berg tunnel opened last year.
The tunnel will he through tbe
Kicking Horse pass of the Rocky
mountains. The eastern portal will
be in Alberta and the western portal
in British Columbia. Careful computations indicate tbat the work
will cost * 11,000,000 and will occupy
seven years to complete. This is
based on the data secured Irom construction records of five large Alpine
tunnels, The tunnel, in the Selkirk

a man buys live acres of this land,
in order to put up a house, stable,

Those   will he the house-, of pallia

the courts of justice, departmental
other buildings, churches, a national
art! gallery and library, a cily hull,
railway stations, barracks, jail, markets and parks. The Industrial and
residential dislricls arc also carefully
planned in the total scheme. The
new Canberra bids fair to be worthy
of the function which it will embody
in Australian development,
Thc plans provide fur an immediate
population of 75,000, ami are of the
radial type, like (be spoken of a

scat of federal government sine

thc Meal of Washington will be made

of the design.
The site for Canberra was purchased hy thc government of Australia
in 11*11 from thestate of New South
Wales. The science of building is
making tremendous strides in advance of the last cenlury, and it
confidently predicted'that tbo building of Canberra will not long be delayed. It will then supersede Melbourne in thc stale of Victoria, the

The annual meeting of ibc Boundary Mining and Exploration company
was held at Midway on Monday,
April 7th. About two thousand
feet of prospecting, in the shape of
shafts, drifts and tunnels have been
made in proving the continuity of
No. 3. seam. Thomas I.. Brophy,
M.K., who recently examined the
property, says: Tlie location is ideal,
giving shipping facilities over two
railways, and being within short distances (1f three large smelters, in addition to many prosperous and growing towns, where there aro ready
markets. Thc coal is a high grade
bituminous and produces the finest
quality iri stool-grey coke. It is al
excellent steam coal aud nothing belter could 1m* round for domestic pur
pos.N. us it is dean and free trom
noxious odors. In his opinion, the
Companj has a body of coal of several million tons proved by the work
already done, and< there is no doubt
hut that the coal now being develop-*
i*d is one fit the smallest scams in the
propertj nf the company. The scam
averages six fed in width.
A. K. Watts, president of the com-
pain, alter tellin-g of the brilliant
prospects of the company, says that
application has been made for a railway spur to the portal of lhe tunnel,
which is only mo feet from ti«* railway- ll is therefore hoped that the
company will be able to ship coal
very shortly, and to rapidly develop
tbe properly aud its earning capacity.
There are a number of shareholders;
of the company in Cranhrook who aro
greatly pleased over the Improved

that Mary Magdalene's influence oi
the Savior was greaiei ihan that 0
any other woman.
The lirst act discloses Mary,
beautiful and wealthy Jewess court
esan at a sumptuous luncheon in th
Garden of SUeniis, tin* philosopher
al Hethclchein. A handsome young
Komun lieutenant, Lucius Verus, is
desperately in love with Mary, who
refuses bis offers.
Tbe second act passes in tlu* luxurious villa of Mary, who is already
under the mystic religious influence
of Christianity. Lucius Verus
presses his suit, and Mary is about
to yield to his supreme outburst nf
profnno passion. It is a terrific
struggle between the flesh and tin*
spirit, but Lazarus, restored to life,
appears, saying to Mary, "The Muster calls you," whereupon Mary, as
if hypnotized,, quits Lucius and follows Lazarus.
The third act is at .Jerusalem, Pontius Pilate had Instructed his lieutenant, Lucius Verus, with .the duty
of guarding the imprisoned Christ.
Lucius, burning with his passion fur
Mary, imbued with nystic faith, re-
Christ to escape if Mary will yield '<'
his embrace. The disciples who are
present implore Mary to comply, but
Mary, imbued w,th mystic faith, re-
'fuscs, and follows Christ on thc path
to Golgotha.
This is considered the finest and
most dramatic work which Maeterlinck has yet written.
The part of Mary is admirably
played hy Georgette Leblanc Maeterlinck. . Tbe Christ is not impersonated on the stage, although His
voice is beard in prayer and pro
claiming the Christian faith. This
scriptural tragedy is a complete
■dramatic success, and will be given

A series of tests to determine tbe
mechanical and physical properties of
western larch (tamarack) has been
recently made by forest product ex
perts, and it has been shown that
the strength is 81.7 per cent., where
western hemlock is 88 per cent and
Douglas- hr 101) .per cent. It Is
shown tbat the maximum strength of
green bridge stringers average of all
grades is 117.fl per cent, as great as
the. strength of the small clear
beams cut from large timbers. The
stringers from small trees are of
better quality than those taken from
old trees, and lhe material coming
from the upper portion of the tree
exhibits less strength than that
from the lower portion.
These results will assist in making
more common the use of many spec^
its and grades of timber which have
hitherto been thought useless. .lust
as in Eastern Canada red pine,
spruce, tamarack and even balsam fir
are taking the place of white pine, in
Western Canada suoh species as larch
can replace. .Douglas fir in some of
the less important industries.
Certain regions, notably the Nelson
and Cranbrook districts in the southern part of British Columbia, are
culting large quantities of birch at
tho present time. This timber is being usi-d in all forms of construction,
in making floors, and in many other
directions. In East Kootenay, tamarack will rank among thc foremost
Important woods. As time goes on
tliere will doubtless, be great development of the iamarack trade, mainly lieeause thc old-time prejudice
against it is rapidly passing away.
One of the problems which awaits
the attention of tlw forest branch in
the near future is the making of investigations which will show-what
species can be used io best advantage
in various lines of construction and
manufacture. The lumber trade and
woodworking industries have benefitted in other countries by just such
procedure, ami with the great resources of inferior sizes and spcelcs
which British Columbia has, in addition to some of the finest timbers in
the world, thc increase in the value
of wood products would be very
great.—Canada Lumberman.

One of Thomas A. Edison's new
Blue Amberol Records
was played 3,000 times
on an Edison Phonograph—and gave just as true
and sweet a reproduction the last ti me as the first
tone after countless play tags
as it is when new. Your
Edison dealer will play
some of these wonderful records for you
on an Edison Phonograph. Ask him
to do so today.
This was not an endurance
test for mere hardness. It
was an endurance test for
quality of reproduction—to find if the
Blue Amberol would
be as far superior to
all other records in

Ottawa, Out., April 0.—The Introduction today of (In* lirst closuro resolution ever presented in the,Canadian parliament was followed hy
scenes of greal confusion. Even Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, the former premier,
lost his customary calm and became
visibly angered.
When Premier Horden concluded Ills
speech on the closure resolution
which was introduced to limit debato on thc naval hill, Minister
Hazen arose to move i the question,
hoping thereby to cut. off amendments, but Sir Wilfrid, already on
Ills feet,i, was recognized.
Another Conservative member cited
rules permitting the house to decide
whether in such ease it, iwould hear
any one -and moved that Minister
1 la/en lie allowed to speak. This
motion waa carried, and a disorderly
scene followed.
Sir Wilfrid's supporters sprang to
their feet "with1 cries of "shame."
There was a battle of demands for
"fair play,", and epithets were freely
bandied. The tumult, continued until a motion to adjourn for dinnor
was carried.
In his speech Mr. Borden said that
debate in parliament "must be preserved under such conditions as shall
not permit it to degenerate Into
license and obstruction."
Since the foundation oi parliament
in 1807, he    said,   business has been

The opposition in this Instance was
iiio, willing to consent. Mr. Borden
cited many authorities defending closure, among them the Hritish premiers, Gladstone and A squill).
At the night session Sir Wilfrid
Laurier replied io .Mr. Uordcn. Tho
former premier said he always had
opposed closure and deemed unfair
ihe government action in shutting oft
amendments to the closure.W'solu
lion, lie charged that "gag rule'
was being'resorted to. The opposition, he added, had not .hindered the
transaction of government business
and bad been justified in ils course of
obstruction. ...
The   debato had hot heen concluded
when the house adjourned.

subordinate courts working under its
jurisdiction, also one of the features
dining the meeting was the passing
of a set of bylaws, for the governing
of the district court.
This court is the first in the Dominion of Canada to undertake such a
step, which bespeaks the energy and
ambition as contained in Forestry in
