Nelson, B.C., July 82.—Changes in
license fees for doing business in kelson, with probable increase uf lintel
liquor license from $300 to $500 per
annum, were discussed at n .netting
of the* cily council lust night, when
the finance committee was asked tit
go into Un* matter and bring down
recommendations regarding n new
consolidated license bylaw which it
is proposed to pass upon.
As to increase in hotel licenses
there BCCtned to he no iHRerctux Of
opinion- The chief reason for Increasing bote) liquor licenses is that
all saloon licenses, of which there are
live in    Nelson, become extinct under
tbe provincial act in January.
Tlie East. Kootenay Lumber Company, of iJafftay, H, C, have their
recently Improved pinning mill In
good working order. All products
aro now manufactured from dry material and loaded direct to cars from
planing machines. Thus customers
receive clean, well manufactured and
well graded material. From their
long experience in manufacturing,
they find that a good product cannot
lie produced from common lumber
when pressing is done in the green
state. By tho use of fast feed machines nnd round cylinders the amount
of down grade caused by milling defects is reduced to a minimum In the
dry dressing process. Their three
hundred foot sorting table gives tbeni
a splendid opportunity to grade tlieir'
lumber to the   hest possible ndvant-
Oust Audceii, proprietor of tbe
Queen's hotel ia tbis citv and one
nt the pioneer   residents of the Koo-
tcnays, died on Tuesday evening at
six o'clock ot spinal meningitis,
Death resulted after only a tow days
illness. Last week he was suffering
with a badly ulcerated tooth.aud bad

velopcd immediately following the
removal ot the tooth. The body

lors uf F, M. Macphcrson and tho
funeral will bo held next Saturday
afternoon at 2.30 o'clock from the
Presbyterian church.
Deceased has been a resident ot
East and West Kootenay for the
past twenty years. He was horn in
Sweden on November 20th, 1803, and
oame to America when he was n
small boy. For several years he
followed railroad construction work
through various parts of the raiser,',
states and when the Sloean district
was first opened iu West "ootenav
he arrived with thc first rush ami

several years. Seven years aji.o he
came to Kast Kootenay nnd bas been
following thc hotel business here
since. Five years ago he was married in Spokane and leaves a son owing wife and three small children to
mourn his loss. His family have
been living at Kitchener for the past
three years, where Mr. Andeen owned
a second hotel.
He was a man who made friends
easily and leaves behind him numberless friends through the Kootenays

true tn bis friends and for many
years has been unfailing in his efforts for tlie advancement of the Koo

been in the line of progress and
development. He was a member of
tho Moose and Eagles lodges, Ho Wfcsi
one of the most popular hotel men
of the city, always conducting a
quiet, orderly house.
While we are making a lot of nOiSO
about the real estate fakirs it might
be well to look about near home and
BOo what is belflg done to fleece the
far-away sucker hy Inducing bin. to
put his money into stuff iu this vicinity. In selling rolten realty tho
proper procedure, and thai which is
invariably followed, is to get ns far
away from hnme as possible.
\n outfit called the International
Securities Co. Ltd.. with head offices
i» Winnipeg and branch offices in
many parts of tbe west, bought up
i bunch <>f wild land adjoining the
South Fork of Elk River. On tho
map this stiiO appears to he about
three miles from Elko village. There
is no rood in to it. except n pack
trttll, and its chief present value lies
fn its ideal situation for sites for
Ashing and hunting lodges. As good
laud as this, more conveniently sit-
tnated in this district and with iusl
as favorable climate, mnv Ih* bought
for $2!i nn acre or less. No one
around hen* would think of paying
S2f> an ncre tor tbe stuff as it stands.'
The International Securities Co.
Ltd., are advertising the land mentioned above and ottcrinc it for sale
nt prices ranging from $50 to $80 per
acre. The man who buys at this
price today is giving himself tbe
worst of it. The advertisinc matter
of thc International Securities Co.
Ltd., is Interesting. As usual, much
of the "dope" is taken from some
authoritative publication which Is a
perfectly truthful general statement
of tact but which was never Intended
to apply to the particular area which
tbe advertiser seeks to sell. Elko
town is given considerable publicity.
Hut the South Fork is not Elko. For
instance, the transportation facilities
or Elko In thc matter of railways
will not help a settler to pack a
mowing mnchlne on horseback, over
the tortuous trail to Sub. lots 3(1
and 43, L. 4B8H fl. 1, East Koote
Here Is a gem. "Elko, a town or
some fiOn people, adjoins the property of the   International Securities
Co. Ltd." This seems to be correel
Reing employed in the advertising of
land at the Komll, Fork, however, thu;
prospective purchaser MKillT acquire
the idie that Sub-lots 3(1 and 13 were
the idea that sub-lots 36 and 13 were
"Right passenger trains stop at
Elko daily," Sure thev do. But what
good does that do the man ot the
lands of the International Securities
Co. Ltd. are located.
"The. largest coal mining company
In British Columbia—Tho flow's
Nest Pass Coal Company—bas its
property near the town and directly
adjoining the Elko fruit lands." This
is another sample. Therefore, he-
cause Canadian lands touch the Antic circle, one could not make :i better investment than in n Canadian
farm in Baffin Land, at Ihe north "f
Hudson's Bay!
"As an industrial factor the Elk
has wonderful claims nn tlio future.
It is estimated that at the south
fork, formed by tho union of the
Wigwam and Lodge l'ole Creeks. Seventy thousand horse power can be
developed, and that almost half again*
of this amount can he produced in
the south fork." (Tbe punctuation
is as it stands in ibe advertising
Can vou beat it? Wbo estimated
"Buy before development" is a
sound investment principal. So says
the literature of the International
Securities Co., Ltd. On ihis principle
those North Pole tracts in Baffin
Land should he an ideal buy.
The literature of the International
Securities Co. countains a statement
showing that the prospectus of the
company was adopted hy tho Elko
Board of Trade as correct. Does this
mean that the Board of Trade approves of the sale of this South Fork
property lo persons who have nol

The Fernie Free Press and Tlio
District Ledger have for the last two
weeks devoted much space lo exposing
irresponsible real estate dealers who
have been operating in that city for
a long time. Agents handling sub-division property in prairie cities and
towns are the object of many bitter
comments. The hoard of trade has
the matter in hand nnd has distributed thousand of circulars of warning to the public. The papers of Fernie are justified in the step they ha\V
taken and no first class real estate

TWO    Brll.DlNOS    STRUCK    BV
An electric storm visited Cranhrook
on Monday evening at io o'clock accompanied wilh a downpour of lain,
which was the second serious storm
this summer. The buildings of Nl-
block & Barker and W. It. Kilby on
Armstrong avenue were struck by
lightning and '!»' entire electric lighting of the city was out of commission
for a few minutes. The lightning
display lasted for about am hour and
although no one has been reported
seriously hurl a large number of
people were frightened by the close
proximity of the electric flashes.
The e/.ieer freaks that lightning will
play is illustrated at the store of
Nihlock & Barker, where the bolt
entered the building from the roof
tearing o(T patch of shingles three ft.
square and burning off several patches
of wall paper on the inside, passed
down through the building onto the
lower floor, burned the electric wires
in two, seared tho wall paper in several places and lore a lage hole near
the fronl door when* it passed out of
the building, Mrs. Nlblock and little
child were standing near the front
door directly in the path of the
streak hut wero untouclifid. Their
escape is a mystery as well as the
explanation as to how the build tne
escaped burning.
W. It. Kilby was standing at tlte
back door of his Imrber shop which
adjoins Nlblock & Barker and was
shuck sufficiently to Ih* dazed for
several minutes. All thc electric
lights were burned out at his place
and the ohlmnoy on his roof knocked
When the lightning struck it was
accompanied by a loud report and
wont buzzing over the wires of the
electric light system and startled
people in all parts of the eity into
thinking their own places were
si luck. The Hex Theatre and the
Auditorium were soon emptied of
their audiences. The tire department
secured an extra force in readiness
for any alarms hut happily nonr*
were turned in-

cutting started at Mograth on Saturday. This is tlie first on record
for this district, and it commences*,
the harvest ol thc largest crop that
Southern Alberta has yet put in the
granary. Winter wheat cutting will
be general by the end ot the week
and it is expected that spring wheat
cutting will begin about .luly Sftth.
JIM        BRANSON       AND       JOE
What promises to be tbe hest fight
ever staged here will take place
when Jim Brannon and Joe Cvanni
clash in a fifteen round bout at the
Auditorium on Tuesday, July 39th.
Jim Brannon Is under the management of Bob Mulroy, who is the
promoter of this contest. Both men
are from Toronto, Jim at one time
daving served on tbe police force
there. Mulroy, who has been mixed
up witb athletic work for the past
ten years, realized on seeing Jim in
action that he was a strong and
clever hoy, and one whom he could
afford to travel the country with
looking for conquests, and feel 'sure
of tho outcome as long as even
matches were made. Such a match
has been made with Joe Cvanni as
his opponent. Cvanni has a good
record, extending over a period ol
years and has met some, very clever
men in the game, and is recognized
on the other side as a star hour,
He holds just now at offer from
Chas. II. Lea, Oakland, CaL, of*
JJ5,ono guarantee and transportation
to box Eddie McCoosty, in California, in the latter part of August.
Probably this is 1he reason he
showed so much Independence in making terms with Mulroy. as he demanded a guarantee of WOO tu meet
Jim Brannon here, to which Bob reluctantly acceded. However, everything is arranged and tlie otttesf   ii
entirely under police supervision.
The past experience of the okr/ens
of Cranbrook warrant the tardiness
of tlie executive body '-the police
commission" in giving permission to
stage this bout here, and Lave it
only on Mulroy's guaiantee that tlie
contest would be on the square and
value for the money. Other ;ise the
promoter stands a chance of losing a
considerable amount of money, .is In
has agreed to give ready ncc«ss to
the gate receipts to the chief of police, if, in his opinion, tlte bout if
not what it should be. Then the
spectators would have their money
refunded. Brannon is doing road
work every day and is using tin
track at tbe exhibition grounds for
same. He will hi* in the pink of
condition on tlie day of tlw match
Cvanni will arrive here Friday o.
Saturday of this week, and will also
work out publicly till the day of the
London, July 22.—The European
concert is laced hy the most difficult
situation requiring the exercise of
the utmost diplomatic tactics it Europe is not to be plunged into a gen*
oral war by the Turkish re-occupation of Adrianople and Kirk Kilisseh.
Bulgaria, helpless, sees the fruits of
her dearly won victories snatched
from her hands, and while negotiations for an armistice are goin.; on
in a leisurely manner at Nish, the
Greeks aud Servians continue to Improve their advantage.
The official announcement made at
Constantinople today that Turkish
troops had re-occupied the CitaTel 01
Adrianople created the worst possible
impression in diplomatic circles and;
no time was lost by the uowcrs in
starling un exchange of views with
tin* object of finding the host means
ot checkmating Turkey's action,
which is looked upon as a e'earcut
defiance of all Europe.
The next taw hours are likely to
decide what forces not engaged shall
outer tbe Balkan cockpit. Russia is
undeistood to be ready to accent the
treaty of London, which (he Ottomans are now tearing up, ind the
British cabinet meets totnarrow to
Hritish cabinet meets tomorrow to
shall consent to active intervention
on the part ot Russia. Turkey will
Ih* warned against the possibility of
such a development, which would involve sudden occupation nf both sides
of tbe Bosphopus and thc gripping of
Constantinople; both in the front and
the rear.
Austria-Hungary thus far has held
aloof, being unwilling -to consent to
active measure* against the Turks.
Should coercion be attempted by
Russia without hoc consent, however,
little doubt in expressed by close
followers of the Balkan situation
that Austria immediately would occupy thc san!ak of Novipaznr.
The .Servians have occupied Belo-
gradchyk, to the noithwest of Sofia,
and desultory lighting continues all
along the Servian frontier. The
Greeks, who are advancing toward
tlie north Irom Nevrokop, are meeting with stubborn resistance from
the Bulgarians. The Bufgtrs, .with
heavy artillery are fighting desperate
rear guard actions. Roth sides arc
reported to be losing heavily. The
Greeks claimed to have captured
strong Bulgarian positions on th*
heights stretching to the north of
Prtehova. In Sofia it is believed
that the Greeks intend to invade
southern Bulgaria and occupy I'bil
pottus. The Bulgarians exploded tbe*
ammunition magazine and blew up
some of the government buildings before evacuating Adrianople. No
serious fighting has occurred cither
at Adrianople or Kirk Kilisseh. The
Bucharest correspondent of the
Daily Telegraph In a late despatch
says ihe report that Greece, will
abandon her claim to Drama proves
to he without foundation.

Invermere, B.C., July 21—T
district was honored last week by
a visit from Mr. Roger Poeock, now
of England, but d gentleman widely
known personally hoth through contact and through his works as the
founder of the Legion- ol Frontiersmen. In bis earlier days in the
west Mr. Poeock has been through
much strenuous life, having amongst
other things lieen a member of the
famous Royal North*West Mounted
Police in the days when, their records were filled with stirring episodes. On tfte present occasion Mr.
Poeock is engaged in the arduous but
more pleasing task 0f preparing matter tor a book which he proposes
shortly publishing dealings with the)
pioneer life as seen,in the semi-
wilds of the Rocky Mountains ot
Canada. In book writing he is well
experienced having written already
two that are well known being the
Frontiersman and Curly, a Tale of
Arizona- In order to gather the
necessary material first hand Mr.
Poeock, in company with Mr. Kan-
dale Cecil, of the great house of
Salisbury, left Calgary several days
since on -two sturdy plains ponies
currying all their necessary supplies
on the back of a third pony. After
leaving Calgary they passed through
the foothills of the Roukbi ,.n-i
made their tirst prolonged stop at
flanlT, studying up the conditions
as they prevail in the National
Park. Leaving Banff they took
trail hy way ot the main line of tht*
C.P.H., until they reached Castle.
where the famous Banff-Winder nitre
road branches off. Travelling b'
this tiail they drank in tbe beauties
of,the Vermillion Pass and the surpassing beauty of the upper reaches
of the Kootenay river valley. Winding their way along the banks ot the
Kootenay river they turned west at
the entrance of Sinclair Pass and ascended the last range of Rocky
Mountains proper, stopping to dip in
the medicinal waters of the Sinclair
hot mineral springs gnd starting
once more ihey fo ml their aCtlwcs
travel ended tor the moment for bv
then they had entered upon a part ol
the new road whirh bas been completed and were =oon upon the toaia
trunk road lea-tmg north and south
through the entire length of the
Columbia-Kootenay rivers'  valley.
Reaching the cluster of vp'ages
which gather around fhe head of
Lake Windermere they were at once
taken in hand hy Mr. Harry P. Parson, the late member for th* district and Mr. J. A. Hope, the Ttll
known writer of tales of ihis pa't.
Later they became the
guests of Mr- R. Randolph Urate,
O.K., F.R.G.S., and were shown all
the moreiimportant points of beauty,
advantage and local history of this
part, including the Toby Creek tan
yon, the site of Fort Kootenay, a*.
erected by David Thoaip.on in his
stay in 1807, the Fairnnwu tot
springs, and the Dominion gOi'ern-
ment experimental faru. With all
these features Mr. Poeock expressed
himself as pleased beyond measure.
In the further continuance ot his
purpose along with his companion
and his outfit a start was mail* for
thc west on the late afternoon, taking their course due west up Toby
Creek valley. In pursuing this
course they will follow west going
under the shadow of Mount Nelson.
10,800 feet, and cross the Sellirk
range by Wells Pass, also Known M
Earl Pass, and entering the valley
ot HarajH creek debouch on to Kootenay lake at Argent a. From there
they will cross the lake to I.arrio.
From there they will cross another
range of mountains and pass on down
to Nakusp. Crossing the Arrow
lake there they will work up the Fire
valley, pa.ss over another range of
mountains aud come out on nkanatran,
lake at or near the town ot Kelow-
na. After duly resting there they
will cross Okanagaa lake and then
start on their final stage by Hope
mountain and Hope Pass and come
out on the Pacific ocean at Port
There has been recently introduced
to this district for traffic with tbe
surrounding country by lake and
river, one of the largest and most
up-to-date driven boats in the interior ot this province. The craft is
the property of the Columbia Valley
Irrigated Fruit Land**. Limited, She

The remarkable scenes witnessed on

on the steps of the local registry office, aiid   were   continued throughout
Thursday    in the shape   of   a busy
throng of applicants, furnished to every witness of same, convincing proof
of the genuine demand for agricultural lands in North Kootenay, and the
complete success of a generous Dominion  Land Policy, which has thrown
open to settlement a portion of the
Hallway   Belt    torltorlcs.   If   only
five hundred producers and their families can bo permanently attracted t<
the agricultural areas of our district,
that will coiisfitute.au asset of tremendous Importance.   No finer addition
to our    existing railway    payroll of
over a   million     dollars   per annum
could be obtained,   than these tillers
of the soil and   their dependants are
destined to prove;    truly the opening
up ol the Railway Hell Lands is   an
OVcnt big with promise of prosperity
for Kcvelstoke   and district,   which
will Im* shared equally by new settlers
and the business community who will
cater to their needs, during a preliminary period of development, and subsequent years *of   progressive production.— Revel stoke Mail Herald.
What becomes of our immigration ?
The last census proves that only one-
sixth of tin* total immigration in Canada remain!;. Five-sixths of the people who enter this country with the
intention of remaining finally seek
other countries fn       settle,
or return        from        whence
they    came.      The   problem of
keeping these people here and of interesting them sufficiently in Canada's
future that they will remain is one
of the great problems now before the
people of the country. No country
in the world offers lo the young main
of moderate means or just a will to
do the opportunities for advancement
Hint Canada offers. No country in
the world can possibly make the
strides in development that Canada

It is up Jo the citizens, the boards

opportunities to the new-comer in
such a favorable light tbat he will

At Kernic the real estate men have
become an object ot Interest tu the
Hoard of Trade, (he city C0ii:wil and
the press with the view of driving
out the wild cat promoter. There is
no doubt that tho real estate bustnei-s
in Western Canada is filled -villi
sharks who nre imposing on the gullibility ol the people. In one town
in Alberta, a small burg whuh suddenly became ihe probable point for

been visited hy many of thc travelling curbstone variety of solicitors to
a large extent to tho detriment of
I those who invested und consequently
to tlw detriment of the city. It is
well to advise people to be more cautious in their dealings with real
estate men, but a wholesale denunciation of the real estate business will
work a detriment to the legitimate
men in the game, who deal only in
substantial properties ami protect
their customers from fraud and graft.)
All lines of business possess fakers,
and although the real estate business
has been overworked, it is still
estimate husiness for those who
deal honestly and are zealous in del*
of their own good name.
The centralists, who will bitterly
mourn this defeat, are told that the
matter may be reconsidered next
ytar and a different decision reached,
but this will not solace them. They
know that their opportunity has passed, probably never to return. Another;
year's debate ought to pretty nearly
destroy the whole centralist delusion.

known. One rooter for Cranbrook
was arrested. There is a general
complaint on the unsportsmanlike
conduct of tbe Wardner team. This is
to be regretted, as friendly contests
between the two teams would always prove a welcome diveision, and
unfairness nn either side works to

Most of us can remember the
school lesson in the law of accumulated motion—momentum.
If you exert a pound of pressure against a man in a swing,
you'll start him moving slowly
"to and fro." If you continue
to exert a pound of pressure
against him every time the swing
makes a trip, you'll soon have
him going so high that he almost
turns the whole circle. If you
stop pushing, the momentum will
die out and the swing come to rest
at " dead centre."
Winning trade follows the same
natural laws.

the hoped-for relief, hut leaves Mr.
Horden and his colleagues still face

Tho rejection of the Navy Bill by the
Senate was followed Immediately by
a movement, with which Mr. Borden
actively co-operated, to induce thc
British Government to lay down
tnrco extra Dreadnoughts on thc understanding that at any time during
their construction the Canadian Government could take them over.* Such
a course would have meant an attempt to coerce Canadian into giving
their consent to a policy of contribution. They would have been confronted with an accomplished "fact,
achieved without their approval,
which they would, by Torce of cir-

do not doubt that Mr. Churchill and

A farmer should have two important object in view; namely:
1. To produce wealth from his
land sufficient to compensate himself
and family for their labor and yield a
reasonable interest on the value ot
his investment.
2- To till the land and manage his
operations so that the fertility or tiki
soil will not become exhausted.
Haphazard methods and careless
work will not accomplish these results, but systematic management,
modern methods and a scientific
knowledge nf plant and animal requirements will surely bring success
In n high degree.
Farming is a profession no less important nor h'ss difficult lo muster
nhan many of the so-called learned
professions, and the man who believes
that farming is A tool-proof occupation will usually make an abject failure of the business.
Two features must lie observed;
namely, stock raising and crop raising. It has boon fully demonstrated
that under better farming methods it
Is not difficult lo produce from tint
soil, and we know that when the production is greater than the consumption the price is correspondingly low;
therefore, it is very necessary that
the,farmer should create Q market for
the products of his soil. This he can
do by observing the sU-ek-raising feature of farming. If he will market
his corn and coarser grains through
livr stock he will reeivve double price
for them if:the feeds are made up in
u balanced ration.
The two features, namely, tilling
the noil and stock raising, are interdependent; they lean on each other
awl neither one wilt long endure alone. The. crop consumes plant food
(rom tlie soil, but the supply Is no
nwre inexhaustible than the farmer's
bank account. The soil fertility must
be replenished from time lo time, and
it' must bo stimulated to nativity,
otherwise the soil becomes sick and
■unproductive. Live stock should consume the major portion of the product-of the soil In-, order that many of
the organic substances essential to
make inorganic elements (which exist
In most soils in abundance available,
may Is* return to the soil lu the form
of manures. Fighty per cent, of Ihe
fertility removed hy the crop is rpst-
ored to Uie land, if tlie manure is
properly prewtwd owl applied.

great quantities of roughage that annually arc wasted on every farm they

There is no way to convert the
corn, the ha\, the clover, the straw,
the katir, thc milo and the abundance of other green feed into a marketable form so (piickly und so economically as by feeding to tlie dairy
cow. She works day and night constantly, both summer ami winter, on
week days and Sundays, in (lood and

waste of the farm into a finished and
valuable product of human food.
The first thing is to get the cows.

The amended Dominion "Forest Reserves nnd Parks Act", which was
finally assented to on -lune fith, 1818,
added over ten thousand live hundred
square miles to the existing nrea of
Dominion Forest Reserves, making ;*.
total of over thirty five thousand
eight hundred square miles ol reserved foresl land iu the Western Provinces under Dominion jurisdiction.
Of this reserved area, three thousand
seven hundred and eighty two square
miles are found in Alberta, one thousand eight hundred anh seventy-two
square miles in Saskatchewan and
four thousand one hundred and eight
square miles In Manitoba. Over two
thirds of the total area is found in
Alberta, owing to the fact that practically all thc casteriu slope of the
Rockies has been set apart as a forest
reserve, not only to perpetuate thi*
supply of timber, but to preserve and
equalize the (low of the large prul-
rie rivers which have their sources
in this reserved area.
Mere figures are of little value except for the purposes of comparison.
In the laleftt report of the United
Stales Chief Forester, the area ol
National Forests under reservation
Is given ns two hundred and fifty
seven thousand, eight hundred and
fifty five square miles, an area of
over trvcit limes as great as tint ut
the Dominion Forest Reserves. And
this, in spite of lhe fact that the
area bearing merchantable timber In
the I'nited States, Is considerably
larger than that in Canada, making
less pressing the need ol reservation*
Moreover, the area lit only for bearing timlier. technically known as the
"absolute forest soil", is considerably
greater in Canada than the I'nited
Slates, making justifiable a policy of
reservation on an even more cxtcnsl
ve scale than that followed m tbo
I'nited States.
These western reserves are created
by the Dominion government as cited in the Act "for the maintenance,
protection and reproduction of the
limber growing thereon, or which
may hereafter grow thereon, for the
conservation or the minerals and the
protection of the animals, birds, and
fish therein, and tor the maintenance
of conditions favorable to a continuous water supply". To accomplish
these ends the reserves must first be
protected from lire, and under the
direction of technical foresters and
supervisors, fire-lines are being cut
or ploughed, "caches" of tools distributed in accessible places throughout the reserves, and sufficient patrols established.
Nor is the timber so protected allowed to die of old age. The foresters determine at what diameter in
each section the.maximum production
is attained and when the trees reach
this size, they are granted free or for
a nominal sum to homesteaders who*
apply to the forest officials for cutting permits. Care is taken not to
allow over-cutting, for it is tho for
ester's aim to crop the foresl perpetually and at the same time increase
Its producing capacity by proper
methods of management.
Thus, hy this policy of forest reservation, instead ol denuded hillsides,
drifting sand and barren rocks, and
mushegs, these areas will in time be
covered with great tracts of forest
owned by the people and supplying
their wants, not only now but to all
future time, when countries wilh loss
foresight will be In the throes of a
timber famine.

taken in automobiles and landed within walking distance of a remote railway station on the American side at
a certain price per bead. Tlu* traffic

The Balkan races have forfeited the
respect ot civilization.
Saving only Greece, which holds to
the elements i.i humanity ami Uhtist**
ian warfare, Uu* Balkan races tfltni'i
the fortnight have proven tho nselves
to bt. a horde or murderous savagis
of whom the arch-savage and murderer is Ferdinand of Bulgarii.
There was never such a fall in history, so swift, so suddea—Irom fanw
to infamy—from heroism to sh'imc.
The. world of civilization was with
the Balkans In their war. It was
blazoned as almost a holy war- 'he
war ot tV Christian nations against
the Unspeakable ami Ucathen furk—
the last nemesis ol Civilization upou
centuries ol butchery and cycles of
Tin* crimson ghost* °' Albania and
/.eitoun—the holocausts of Christian
martyrs Incinerated iu Turkish fires,
tht! battalions ot Christians butchered
because tfoey were Christians, the
pictures of infants bayoneted below
their mothers' eyes, the mothers murdered, with outrage preceding or foi
lowing fast on murder—aroused the
public protest of the Christian world-
Every voice in Christendom rang
for Bulgaria and the Balkans. Every
civilized prayer was theirs.
And their batUo was magnificently
won. All records of history were
equalled if not surpassed on the battlefields of this modem and magnificent crusade.
Step by step the Unspeakable Turlc
was driven   back    from   his   battle-
ficlds ol murder.1 Inch by inch   Crescent yielded to the Cross.
Bulgaria -swept from Adrianople  to
Chatalja.   Greek   battleships blocked
tbe transportation of Turkish troops
and provisions of war.   Servia march-,
ed Irom    her own   victorious battle-
fields to reinforce the Bulgarians   ii
the Crisis at Adrianople and Chatalja, and with the allies legions thundering at the despairing gates ot Cons
tantlnople, Southwestern Europe passed from the Crescent to Christ, and
a great   new nation   seemed to have
been horn from the Slavonic races to
rewrite   history   and   to Rttitt    the
balance of power from the older monarchies to the   plains ot Thiace—new
consecrated to liberty and humanity.
It was un epoch in human history.
It was   an Armageddon   rich   io the
righteous thump,, of the right above
the wrong.   Aud in its glorious aftermath tlie   annals of the Christian
races   should have   been   remade aud
a m pi i tied.
But almost in u night ithe scene has
changed.'The peace ot Loudon became tho proclamation of a. progressive
savagery. The men who endured like
martyrs and fought like lions could
not win like men, but quarreled like
jackals over the spoils of victory.
Bulgaria, first iu battle, was foremost in her greed, and her crimson
hands, wet. with heathen blood, and
presuming on their strength, reached
out lo grasp the throats of Christian allies and seize the territory that
Greece and Servia had helped like
heroes to achieve. Friends fastened
their fangs into each other's vitals
with a ferocity fiercer than tbey bad
shown their common foe.
Tin- Balkan armies seem to have
become us barbarous as the Turks.
Their hatred tor the Turks was as
nothing to their hatred tor each
Their hideous greed ot territory
blinded their eyes to every sentiment
ol Christianity and lo every creed of
They caught from the Turk his
bloodiest butchering instincts. The
Bulgares at Kilkiss and Kurkut burned alivo seven hundred men, before
their tortured wives with as fine a
savagery as ever brutalized thc Turk.
Thc Serb at Belgrade jeers and hisses into the dying ears of Bulgarian
prisoners, brought Irom the battle
fronts, and with list and loot, with
tooth ami nail, like primeval savages,
fought Bttlgar aud Serb, who had carried tbe Cross ot Christ in triumph
above the infidel and Unspeakable
The Balkan fortnight behind us Is
an outrage upon the whole Christian
world. These lapsed Christians, these-
transformed savages of greed, have
Within ten days astonished all Christian and civilized nations. Tbey have
struck ;l staggering blow at the taith
they followed and their religion and
ours they have defiled.
Thc nations thut cried Godspeed to
the Balkan armies ot yesterday are
ready now to cry, "Down with the
newborn butchers of the Danube,*1
and thc world is ready to approve
and applaud Austria or any other
power thai will repossess the territory so unworthily held and proceed
to govern the people so obviously incapable and so- basely unequal to the
task of governing themselves.

In view of the " Frosts " that have been handed to the Citizens of Cranbrook, the Police Commission were loth to give permission to stage
this bout, and have done so only on condition that the contest must be genuine, on the square, and value for money.   The Promotor has
guaranteed this, and has made an even macth, ensuring a well fought contest
loading guns. in all of these changes Great Britain lagged behind In
development, though what she lost at.
first she made up afterward by improving and adding to the work done
by others. Hut in- the latest revolution the substitution of oil for coal
as fuel for warships, Oreat Britain isj
leading the rest ot the world. Warned
by her previous experiences and her
failure to acquire for the use of the
government or rather the navy, her
own arras of steam coal, (ireat Britain means to go into the oil business
on her own account. She is now acquiring a part Interest in the world's
best oil fields in order to ensure an
adequate supply for tlio luture.
Hy coming to this definite conclu-
j sion tbe government may well develop
a policy of state organization, id the
oil IKldn ot   Uie    empire, iu Burma,
Borneo, Egypt and Trinidad, while
the way lies open for co-operation
with the government of the Dominions for development on lhe mosl approved null scientific lines of the
known and suspected oil resources ot
Canada, Newfoundland nml Australia.
It is felt that it would never do
(or (Ireat Britain to allow her naval
supremacy to depend upon what arc
now the chief sources of oil, namely,
Persia, Uoumanin and Russia, wliciiir
the supplies must come through lhe
Mediterranean, or on Texas and
California, which would entail bringing the oil through the Panama
Canal or across the i'nited S1. .t.'s.
1'Jvett the supply from the Mexican
fields would leave Great Britain
more or less dependent on a foreign
country and the oil route across llie
Atlantic dangerously exposed.
The admiralty's new policy makes
the development nf the oil resources
of the empire of the greatest urgency and thus makes It Imperative for
ail the organising powers of the various governments of the empire to
unite on this problem. It is hoped
that Canada's conservation commission will lose no time in Retting in
touch with the admiralty.
Mr: Churchill bas shown how the
use of oil increases the efficiency of
the fleet. Not only does oil fuel
make the management of the big
ships easier nnd better, but it gives
them ntu extra turn nf sped, and
does away with the hell of the
stokehole, which removes lhat worst
feature ol steam navigation and lhe
KrCtttCHl si rain -there is on human
endurance,      Moreover It practically
eliminates stokers, of whom ihere
will be at least -100 lo a battleship,
from, the engine room and inureascs
the general crew, and is an enormous
saving of men. Again, as may lie
imagined, it. enables ships to taV'O
fuel aboard on the high sins iu almost any . weather, by suction pipes
instead of coal baskets and derricks.
Incidentally it would mean thai at
both Vancouver and Halifax there
would be largo depots for oil fuel as
well as at all other naval centres.
The super-dread no tight Queen Elizabeth, nOW building at Portsmouth,
will Ih* Hie first battleship ia the
world to he driven entirely by nil
fuel, She is really a combination of
thc battleship ami the battleship
cruiser, and it Is expected- to do
away with the present typo of
battleship cruiser ami increase
efficiency of the battleship, She Is of
20,000 tons displacement, has a, speed
of 25 knots, eight Ill-inch guns and a
11-inch armor belt. Groat Britain
is also already building four other
warships, the mosl powerful in
world, all ot which will burn o
oil only.
Germany has easy access to
Qalicfan and Roumanian oil
which are close to her own borders,
and from whence it can be easily
transported overland. The Diesel engine is now being placed iu the German warships, thus Increasing their
radius of action nnd allowing tor increased personnel. These two jwlats
are vital of course to Great Britain,
which has a world empire to defend.
Thus the question of oil fields is
likely to be one of tremendous international   Import      Great     tttUutn
Cannot afford lo allow any opportunities to slip by of the establishing ot
her interests in new fields, and' alt
new developments are being watched
here witli the keenest interest.

(By W. A. Craick)
When the. transcontinental traveller
passes Kort William ou his way west,
he rifles out of the jurisdiction ot
David MoNicoll, vice president ia
charge of the eastern lines of tlie
Canadian Pacific Railway, atul into
that of George Bury, czar ot tlie wMttyj
ern lines of the big system. The
transition is imperceptible but it is
none the less real. Beyond tho Great,
Lakes one gets out ot touch with all
those mighty directors and officials
in Montreal aud looks instead to tbe
face of their viceroy in Winnipeg.
George Bury is to tho westerner
what Sir Thomas SbAUghnessy. .I.W.
Leonard, David McNlcoll, (I.M. Bos-
worth and all thc rest of tho head
ollice potentates are to tlio easterner, lie is all these officials rolled into
one so fur as influence is concerned
and. as the power of a satrap used to
increase in proportion to his distaneo
from the court, so tbe hand of Vice-
president Bury is mighty through
out the west. When he goes east to
lender account to his sovereign-lord,
the company, he may diminish in importance, hut. once he returns to his
own domain, he his all-powerful. His
offices in the Alexandra station in
Winnipeg vie in splendor with thoso
ot the president in Montreal and his
little army of underlings nre every
whit as active and accomplished.
Mr. Bury conforms in his career to
the general rule by which men have
become great tu Canada. He began
at the bottom and he climbed to tho
top. He wasn't horn in the purple,
nor ditl he inherit wealth or social
prestige. His sole endowment from
his ancestors was a useful modicum
of brains. These he invested profitably with thc happy results that he
got there and is today,to be numbered among the nation-builders.
He made his arrival iu Canada on
March li, 18«,i, the lirst day of hi:
existence. The city of Montreal waa
his birthplace and his parents wero
people of standing in the community.
These parents were bent on making
their boy a lawyer, but young George
had other views. His boyish mind
was enthused with the stories he
heard about the building of the C. P.
It., a task in which Messrs. MacKcn-
zie, Mann and a few other future nabobs wen- then engaged. It seemed to
him that railroading would make a far;.
more interesting pursuit than getting up cases out of. dusty old law
books. A good many boys cherish
tbis same idea but few of them stick
it out.   George Bury held by it.
After he had put in a few terms at
Montreal College, he went one day to
the 0, P. R. office, then a small affair to be sure, and applied for a job.
Yes, there was two vacancies. Mr.
Archer Baker, tbe general superintendent, wanted a boy; so did Tom
Shaugbnessy, the purchasing agent.
Office boy's advice was to the effect
that Mr. Baker was easier to work
(or and his job the greater cinch of
the two and applicant bat better try
for it. Applicant, however, thought
otherwise. Ho had heard that Shangh-
ncssy was a promising young man
and would likely rise in the service.
Ergo, if he could only grab Shaugh-
hcssy'fl coat-tail, he might rise too.
In his spare time George Bury had
learned shorthand on the sly. When
he. appeared In-fore Mr. Shnugnnessy
in quest of the position, this knowledge turned the scale in his favor.
Tbe future hresident employed the
future vice-president on tho spot and
George started to work at $25.00 a
Now, young Bury did not play tho
role of office boy in the approved ami
popular way. lie didn't loaf, he didn't
smoke nn the quiet, and he didn't
beg off frequently to bury his grandmother. 111s mind wns n sponge and
he soaked in knowledge like water
At night he learned telegraphy and
by day, when be could spare the time
from his office work, he wns ferreting
around station, yard and shops to
pick up odds and ends ot information.
Ik* wauled to know rniroading from
A to Z.
Knowledge told. He hadn't lieen
three years in. the office before General Manager Van Horne purloined
him from Mr. Khanghnessy's department to serve ns his private secretary. Then somewhere about 1900 thu
young man who knew u little about
every thing in the railroad business,
wns appointed assistant superintendent at North Bay. In a few years he
was ga/<cttcd full superintendent and
then began a series ot moves and promotions that carried him back and
forth from coast to coast like a shuttlecock. Now-he was at Fort William,
and now at Cranhrook, then back to
North Bay and then In Winnipeg and
every change spelled greater authority
and more pay.
In IflOl ho took root in Winnipeg,
first as general superintendent ot the
Lake Superior division, then as assistant general manager of western
Incs and (n 1*11 on the retirement)
of Sir William Whyte, as vice presid-
nt and general manager. Subsequently tlie latter halt of this title has
lieen removed, hut not a whit of his
authority has linen lessened. He is
the c/ur of western lines, accountable,
alone lo the president in Montreal.
Mr. Bury is just the type of man1
who fits into a private car. He is
the essence ot neatness and punctiliousness. His figure is Napoleonesquo
with excessive care and isn't comfortable unless his surroundings are .spick
aud span. Ills ollice in Winnipeg is
a dream of order and cleanliness,
without a stray piece of correspondence in sight. He has a strong face,
surmounted by a broad forehead,
wears a slight, moustache and glasses
and talks clearly and precisely.
He exhibits remarkable energy in
handling bis work and is as vigorous
and alert as a school boy at his favorite sport, lit* is noted for quick
power of observation and has been
known to detect defects in the truck
as he rode along iu his car that escaped the notice of a trained road-
master. This same characteristic is
observable in tbe rapidity with,which
he can grasp the elements of a situation and work out a solution. Exceedingly well informed on engineering
and mechanical matters he has hint
self invented devices for the improv-
ment of equipment,
From his youth, he* has always been
fond of. sports.   He was once quite a
boxer, used to enjoy tennis and is an
excellent swimmer.    He has latterly
essayed golf in order to keep in with
the fashion but admits that he hasn't)
j been able to make much of a success
at, it.   Formerly a great club man ho
1 is now becoming   more domesticated
and prefers a book nt home to a game
ot cards with "the fellows."   He has
j a genuine,   not an affected, fondness
j for litterat'iire and indeed can pen ar*
I tides    himself of considerable merit,
j His efforts being usually anonymous,
J it is impossible to tell just what productions emanating ' from the Winnipeg office are of his composition.
There are of course some people
who are ready to pick holes in tho
coat of this western railroad magnate
He would scarcely be human if ho
did not lay himself open to attack at
some points. But it must be admitted that those who belittled him when
ho stepped into Sir William Whytc
capacious shoes, have come round to|
tlie point of admitting that he is not
doing so badly. He Is a bigger man
than they gave him credit for and h
stock is going up in Western Canada.
He has shown himself zealous, pain,
taking, courteous and determined io
do tire best he can for the people
served by the. western lines. He bus
demonstrated his ability to organise
and lead. He bas retained the respect ot thc subordinate officials and
the confidence of the men oa the
road. Above all he has exhibited a
knowledge of western problems that|
has put him right with the beltct
class of the people.
His rise, which in its way has been
a remarkable one, has been due to
several influences. There can be no
doubt that hfo early associa'.'oi with
Sir Thomas Shaugbnessy helped n
great deal. Some would call lhe
Shaugbnessy influence favoritism, but
in this case it was favoritism will
applied. He himself says that 1 :«.•*>
has had much to do with his success,
meaning that lie had been the fortunate one to he on hand when the emergencies arose. Those who have
read the story of his promotion will
agree that perhaps his own steady
application nnd readiness to imbibe
practical knowledge were the main
elements in the situation and without
them nothing else could have advanced hi tu.

April 30, 1913, as published In a tHil-1
letin- hy tho department of trade and
commerce was $1,079,034,018, a
splendid increase compared with thej
same period preceding, when lhe total was $879,011,838. The total lin-|

were £101,440,4(11. Thc ninount ol.

One of the most interesting items
in file list of imports is settlers' effects brought In by Immigrants. Dur-1

this year, the valuo of these was,
from the United States, $410,2911,-

from Oreat Britain. |
The figures show in a comprehcnsi-i

Imporls and exports which have already been reflected in monthly rc-|

conditions which arc generally regarded as being responsible for thej
scarcity of money showed some'
signs of improvement. In London
the stuck murk-els were slightly
more buoyant, money was somewhat
easier, and some loans were placed
on terms better than anticipated. As
yet, however, general conditions arc
such as lo indicate continued hardness of money lor snim* months
ahead, The Balkan 1 rouble is as
yet as great a cause of distrust as
it ever was, aad thc outcome is still
wrapped in, uncertainty. Until theso
uncertainties and misgivings with re-
spent to, the European situation aro
removed there is little hope for
money rates and money supply, such
as to satisfy the demands of Canadian borrowers.
Several well-known business men of
the Dominion have returned during
thn week from Europe and confirm
previous reports lo the effect that in
London there appears to be money
for investment, but tbat investors
will not let it out of their hands.
The cause is set down as being lack
of confidence. No doubt lack of confidence is one of the chief causes
militating against 'tbe. successful
placing of Canadian loans in London
at the present time.       Tin position

of the hunks there is fairly satisfactory, nnd compares well with the
position at tlie corresponding period
of a year ago. This would seem to
bear out the contention that just as
soon as confidence returns to the in-
vosltng public of Fjuropc there will be
more money available.
In the meantime Canada seems to
be progressing favorably. Mere people
continue to be well employed. Conditions are such as to have caused
bricklayers to strike for wages at
the rate of eighty cents per hour, and
in Saskatoon another strike is pending in which tho skilled craftsmen
are demanding higher rates of wages.
