The University question la apparently a dead issue, in so far aa the provincial government undertaking the
erection of new buildings Is concerned.
While Hon. Dr. MacLean, minister
ot education, uftd Premier Oliver will
not state definitely that tbe govern-
feut cannot commence construction at
Point Grey, still the marked inference
from Interviews with them on the subject Is that nothing can .be done-
Apparently tho only ruy of hope ls
In tlie prospective Incroaso of fees,
the minister explaining that with a
raise from $60, us ut present, to $76,
the board of governors would realize
upwards of ?;t7.r...o, which umount
would probably bo ull that can be
expected In meetiug tho Increased
»st and caring fur tho additional
."■indents who will enter the Institution this full.
in the meantime word has been sent
ml to the effeot that It may be necessary to restrict the admission of students to the university to those who
have the full matriculation standing.
It has heen decided that these students
shall have first consideration, and
those wtth supplementary standing
will be granted admission if It is
found possible to accommodate them.
In tho meantime Intending students
are urged to register as soon as possible, whether they are fully matriculated or not.
To say the least, the Inactivity of
the government on the university
guestlon is a great disappointment to
those Interested in educational progress in this province.

Being    Followed    With
General Interest
The deal went through this week
whereby A. Benson- of the Queens
hotel acquired the Conrad Johnson
ranch at the brickyard, Martin Bros.

A somewhat libellous reference to
the Wyclice baseball nine was contained In a dispatch from Calgary appearing in the Lethbrldge Herald one
day last week. It was stated that in
regard to a colored aggregation known
as the Winnipeg Giants, now on tour
of the west, amateur teams were to
forfeit their standing If they engaged
In games with them. Along with
this it was stated that another "barnstorming" nine from Wycllffe, calling
storting" nine from Wycllffe, calling
themselves "champions of B-C," were
ulso on tour. The sport writers on
the Calgary journals might go to the
trouble of finding out the facts of the
case before handing out. gratuitous
lams of this kind.
Thc continued dry weather of the
past few weeks has given rise to particularly hazardous conditions as regards forest and bush fires, and considering the conditions whlcb have
prevailed, there have been few fir-
Early this week fires were burning close to Yahk. on tlie mill side of
the track, but fortunately running in
lie other direction; above the tracft
at Ryan another fire could be seen,
though not apparently of very large
proporti(\Si north of the city, above
Fort Steelo another fire was in pro-

week a fire developed fairly close to

which the Forestry Department have
been working, tho windstorm this
week brought some of the wires down.
Impeding communication.
Two firo alarms within tho pait
week have been heard, but In neither
case was the damage at all extensive.
Some ashes apparently were the cause
of a little flurry of excitement near
the rear of the Briokaon bam lato last
Friday evening, but the trouble wns
toon set right. Ou Tuesduy at noon,
In the midst of one of the worst windstorms the city hns suffered for a good
whllo, the uew electric fire alarms
wore In action again, followed by thc
more raucous blast from the power
hOUlO whistle. This time an alarm
from a Crfnese building at tbe rear of
Durlck Avenue was Ibe cause. It is
fortunate that It did not amount to
miiih, for conditions nt that time were
such as would have given fire fighters
a hard time at u real blaze.
Mr. C (1. Simpson, of Nelson, proprietor of the Dominion Granite
Works, stopped over in Cranbrook on
Monday ln connection with n proposed
war memorial project- Mr. Simpson
has erected monuments at Nakusp,
aud Rossland, and lias the contract
for erecting one at Creston, as soon
aB the stone is quarried at Sirdar. He
has also drawn plans for the contemplated $10,000 monument at Nelson,
which will be erected when funds for
the major portion are In sight. Mr.
Simpson states his activities extend
as far east as Moose Jaw, and when
stopping off here, he was his way
east on a trip. He Interviewed the
local Q. W. V. A. executive while here
and it understood to be the desire of
at least some of the members of that
body to erect a monument it no further steps towards a memorial are taken tn the city nt large.
The article below, reprinted from
tho current number of the Western
Lumberman, records the rapid progress being made at Wattsburg hy
the B.C. Spruce Mills, Ltd., In the establishment of their immense ir.il 1
project there. It is of Interest to

which ure already up.
Eight miles from Cranbrook, an
Important Divisional point of thc
Canadian Pacific Railway, Crow's
Nest Une, is tbe location of the largest sawmill ln the mountain section
of the provinco. It absorbs the property of the pioneer mill operator and
founder of Wattsburg, as well as the
limits previously held by other mountain lumbermen. The B- 0. Spruce
Mills, Limited, comprises a strong
combination of experienced men from
the United States, many of whom have
still large interests in the lumbering
and milling business In the South,
East and West, aB well as in Canadian fields. Thus the scale of the undertaking at Wattsburg ls a colossal
one, and in-the hands of these experienced men Is quickly nearing a
successfully planned and constructed
industrial addition to the timber and
lumbering developfent in B.C.
Mr. W. N. Bissell of Wausau, Wisconsin, tlrst of all prepared tbe plans

supervising and bringing the same
to Ub present advanced stage.
Tbe machinery for the mill ls all erected and even the main building has
been finished with a beautiful pearl
slate paint with white trimmings, a
splendid combination and the observer Is immediately struck wth the general good lighting effect that has been
attained throughout the structure. A
close Inspection of the interior reveals
the thoroughness which the planning
of experienced men has aimed for and
achieved. In this main building 10R
x 188 feet ls a single band saw 44 x
16, heavy duty carriage with steam
set works, steam nigger and shotgun
feed and a 7-foot horizontal re-saw
with a combined capacity of 175.000
feet of lumber per ten hour day; there
are three edgers, one double and two
single machines, an automatic air
trimmer, two lath machines and one
complete wood lime outfit; also an
air machine for cleaning up refuse
nbout the mill. A timber deck and
platform will be erected at the end
of the mill and convenient to thc railroad track-
All shafting and counter shafting
has been set on concrete bridge trees
and the band saw bas Its own foundation of solid concrete. 20 feet spuare,
which is driven by a 400 h.p. Wicks
engine in the milt. Leather belting
Is used throughout.
Engine, Boiler House and Machine*
The boiler house with' three stacks
is a combined boiler house and engine
room, divided by concrete partition;
the building measures 72 feet x 72
feet, and is constructed of solid concrete walls, wired glass steel framed
windows, steel trussed and steel roofed. There are six 18 ft. x 72 In. Vulcan Iron Works boilers of 150 lbs-
pressure. These will be operated In
butteries, two boilers to a Black; jm
overhead fuel carrier and dutch oven
feed with steel decks.
The engine room has a largo Buckeye engine installed developing 550 h.
p.; thero Is also a General Electric
00. lighting plant, 1,600 light size.
The fuel house ls 36 x 65 solid concrete walls, stoel trussed and steel
roofed building, with a height of 30
feet to the oaves. The burner hus a
sol Id concrete base 35 feet in diameter and brick liner, and'raises to a
height of 110 feet. The machine shop
Is a frame building 36 x 85 feet, situated back from the mill, and contains the following equipment: One

8 rt. bed; one 8 ft. Iron planer, one
Iron sbaper, one air compressor, bolt
threading machine, pipe threading machine, automatic trip hammer, and the
usual blncksmtthing equipment. A
separate engine operates the motive
power for this shop.
Fine Equipment for Handling
Logs ud lumber
There are two dams, one for the
mill pond to handle about 300,000 feet
of logs and another for storage where
upwards of 10,000 feet of logs can
be held.
The sorting table and platform cover 200 square feet. Concrete foundations and pools have been put ln to
ensure permanency.
The yard is a level piece of ground

Jim Dick is a Chinese resident of
this city who has suffered misfortune,
tuid lu consequence hus two wooden
legs. Far from hampering linn, it
would seem thnt in t.ie past this Itab
been of assistance to lilm In bis business of peddling drugs'. Early this
week his premises on Durlck Avenue
were raided by the police on the hunt
for drugs, but though tho place was
thoroughly searched no trace of any
could In found. V-ien the Chief de
tided to look Into t'.c matter of the
wooden legs, und one was found to
contain a hole, In which the drugs
were secreted. It was a wily dodge,
and doubtless has served Its purpose
woll and long. However, Jim's artfulness cost lini $300, which was the
amount of the tine he was assessed
by Magistrate eLnsk on Wednesday, or
nine months in Jail.
Mali Long, another Celestial was also up ln tlie folfce court on Monday on
cliargo of selling drugs, and was
fined $200 or six months in jail. Mis
finu was paid, and the expectation
was that Jim Dick's would also be
raised and paid Into the treasury.
The joint Rebekah and I.O.O.F. picnic wus held on Wednesday this week
at a site near the old Standard mill.
A large number turned out on the

folks which comprised the usual
races peculiar to an occasion of this
kind, also several games of baseball
were played, by men's, women's and
mlxeif teams.
Thero was plenty of fruit, soft
drinks and ice cream for the kiddles
during tho day. The bounteous supper was served ou the long tables about 5..10 in which all did Justice to
tho display of good things.
After supper further sporta were
arrled on until about 7.30 when all
began to return home declaring the
ptcnle one of the most enjoyable events of the season.

Rev. W. T- Tapscott, pastor of the
local Baptist Church, on Sunday morning preached from the same text from
whicli he preached bis first sermon
50 years ago, vi/.: Hebrews XIII. 6.
"The Lord is my Helper." For 50
years the preacher said he had made
this text the motto of his ministry.
It implied a sense of dependence, for
Lhe self-sufficient man needs no helper; and in the second place a resolution to better one's self, for help implies co-operation. He said in part:
"If ever the Christian forces of the
world needed to gird themselves with

Committee of Eight Named to
Investigate Proposals—
To Meet In Three Weeks
(Special to the Herald)
Invermere, Aug. 31.—The delegation
representing the Associated Boards of
Trade of British Columbia and the
Made in British Columbia campaign
comprising W. E. Payne, secretary
of all the- organisations, Frank Parsons, chairman of the Manufacturers
Bureau of tbe Vancouver Board of
Trade, and Bruce McKelvie, manager
of the Made In BC. campaign, all
reached here by special automobile
oq ti.e afternoon of Sunday last. They
spent most of Monday In seeing the
sights of the Lake Windermere district and visiting the famous Sinclair Hot Springs. In the evening
they addressed a meeting of the members of the District Board of Trade
setting out the objects of their .tour
through the interior of the southern
part of the province. All of them
were most convincing ln their arguments and created a very favorable
impression. The burden of their
theme wae to first buy Bltlsh Columbia made products, price and quality
being equal, but If not available in
either event then be patriotic to the
Empire and buy goods made within
the British Empire.
All three left Tuesday morning for
their homes ln Vancouver, but before
doing so spoke most enthusiastically
of the receptions which had been accorded them throughout their journey.
A wedding of considerable Interest
In Cranbrook took place In Fernle
today, when Miss Beatrice Allen,
formerly of the John Manning store
Btaff, was united In marriage to Mr.
D. A. Kay, ot the Courier staff. Mr
and Mrs. Kay passed through the
city on Thursday's train, and on
their return are expected to make
their home in the E. P. Elgee bouse
on Burwell Avenue, which Mr- Kay
has purchased. Their friends extend
to them every good wish.
Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Wilson and Mr.
and Mrs. W. F. Attrldge returned on
Monday from a ten dafs' holiday
spent ln the Okanagan- They made the
trip by car, and made Pentlcton their
headquarters- They made a trip up
the Okanagan Lake by boat, and visited the new settlement south of Pentlcton at Oliver, also inspecting" the
big Irrigation project, by whicli the
lower part of tbe Valley may be
brought to the same stage of productiveness as the older settled districts to tba north.
To all who contributed to the success of the Boys' Camp at Premier
I feel quite sure that I will be pardoned for my delay ln thus thanx-
ing those who In so many ways helped make the camp a success.
This letter would have been written beforo but for the fact that I left
for my vacation on Monday following
camp. Now, as I look back over the
two weeks spent at Premier Lake and
tho splendid time everybodf had I
am most sincere ln my thanks. Altogether the outing was simply grand,
and one long to be remembered.
Especially do I wish to thank Messrs. Morris, Harris. Leigh. Young.
I Bridges anl Taylor, who as leaders
| sacrificed time and personal thought
for the wslf-are of i.k.o boy-. *..,! w
them the real success of the camp Is
attributed. To Mr. and Mrs. E. L.
Staples who really made It possible
to hold the camp at Premier and so
kindly provided boats, canvas, rafts,
ets., all of which certainly added to
the enjoyment of the hampers, and to
Mrs. F. W. Green who so generously
provided a car for the entire two
weeks, and the men who so kindly
gave their time and cars to take the
boys to and from Premier.
Words fall to express my appreciation and thanks to all, and I trust
that the spirit ln which this is written
will be accepted.     , ,

Owing to the department not acceding to the rerjuest for an extension of a permit, the School Board
has again been disappointed in the
matter of securing a commercial teacher for the high school. The acceptance of the teacher previously up
pointed was contingent upon the renewal of her permit, a policy whlcti
the department is discouraging excepting whero absolutely necessary.
Tho Board Is now in touch with Miss
ll. I). Nell), of Kamloops, in regard
to the position.
A public meeting was held in the
city hall on Monday cven'na to discuss the matter of a memorial to the
local soldiers who fell ln the war.
Tliere was a very good attendance,
most of the organizations which had
been iuvlted to send a representative
to the meeting apparently responding. Most people were agreed that
il was the best attended meeting, and
the most representative gathering yet
held to discuss the memorial question.
Mayor Genest presided, and stated
the business of the meeting to be the
discussion of u proper memorial to
[he soldiers who served lu tlit great
war. After but lin tug briefly the work
previously attempted by the city, and
what is now In hand by the city council, he called for suggestions,
A secretary for the meeting was
proposed, and utter several had declined, Mrs. Elmore Staples, one of
those uominated. accepted.
Three proposals came up before the
meeting. Mr. A. J. Balment revived
the possibility of establishing a mem-
orlal park. Mr. p. Adams was among
■those who favored a monument, and
Mrs. Staples laid the proposal for a
library memorial before tlie meeting-
There was some discussion on the
different proposals, and Mr. C. B.
Simpson, of Nelson, who happened to
be in the city for the evening, laid
some plans for monuments before the
meeting, showing they could be put
up at a cost all the wny from $500 to
$20,001). Dr. Green Spoke in favor of
a library, and made a proposal that
the city take steps to find out what
could bo done to provide a free Bite,
and get other particulars, but ln the
subsequent discussion this was lost
sight of. Rev. W. T. Tapscott also
urged the claims of a library memorial, believing that the means could be
found to finance it. Rev. E. W. McKay also spoke along the same lines,
and proposed a resolution to the effect that a committee be formed to report at a later public meeting on the
approximate cost ot a memorial library, a park and a monument. This
waa seconded by Mr- A. A. MacKinnon and carried unanimously. It was
agreed that the time for the next
meeting ought to be se' ae Boon as
possible, but in view of the fact that

a library, it was not felt possible to
set the date earlier than three weeks
from last Monday evening, when ano-
theg public meeting will be held unless other arrangements are made.
The general feeling seemed to favor <] the library project, but no single vote was taken on the matter by
Itself. Mr. J. F. Huchcroft favored
the library, and considered that as
the notices of the meeting stated the
purpose was to discuss a memorial library, other proposals were really
out of order. However, the meeting
decided that data should be obtained
on all three propositions, and as the
Mayor stated, there was a general agreement that something should be
done, and that as soon as possible.
On what information the committee
can gather and report on at the next
meeting, the choice will probably depend.
Nominations for the committee
were called for, and election made as
Messrs. W. E. Worden, A. A. MacKinnon. Major Hicks, Dr Green, Mrs.
Shankland. Mrs Elmore Staples, Mrs.
Baxter, and the Mayor.
This committee got to work Immediately at the close; of the public meet-

Of some men, whose advanced ideas have not found general
reception in their own time, it
iH said they lived before their
time. It is no doubt to he considered an honor thus to be adjudged by posterity as being in
the van of progress.   But greater still must it be counted to be
the right man at tlie rigiit time.
This is the verdict of tlie country generally in regard to the
late Sir Sam Hughes wlio passed away laBt   week,    Political
enemies even, who in his life
time opposed him, unite in ac
cording to tlie late minister of
militia   the   greatest   tribute

—namely, that he was essentially sincere.  This at all times
is the hall mark of   the   real
The late Sir Sam had a long
record   of   public   service   in
many capacities but it was as
minister of militia at the time
of the outbreak of the war that
he became known to the general public.   Someone   has said
that for every crisis   arising
in a nation's life a man is raised to meet it, and whatever criticism can be   offered   subsequently on the policy   of   Sir
Sum, it must be admitted that
in those stirring   days   which
marked the close of 1!»14 his
quick and decisive action In organizing the    first    Canadian
contingent must stand everlastingly to his credit, and so to
that of his country.   There was
no parallel in history   to   the
conditions that arose at   that
time, and so no precedent   to
point the way, yet inside of six
weeks from the declaration of
war over thirty thousand men
were in training at Valcartier,
and a few woeks later   were
sent across to England to make
way for a second   contingent.
Being human he   made   mistakes, but once his judgment
on any question was formed he
stuck to his guns through thick
and thin.  This tenacity of purpose marked him down to thc
end.    Given up by physicians
months back, he clung to life
still by the exercise of his wonderful pertinacity.
Sir Sam made his decisions
quickly, but not often could he
be found at fault. His defence
of the Rosb rifle Illustrates the
strength of purpose which lay
within htm and the little epl-
side wherein he sought to disagree with Lord Kitchener,
when the latter was commander-in-chief of the British armies, Illustrates his fearlessness
in offering criticism when he
saw fit ot do so.
Sir Sam was respected by
many and hated by a few, but
he lived and died a real man
and a true Canadian. lie planned what he desired lo accomplish, then set out to do lt. Respected as a friend, he was fcar-
It has happily proved quite
true that wild-catting in connection with the mining resources of this province is very
largely a thing of the past. Unfortunately it cannot lie said
that it is altogether so. A case
now comes to light wliere some
gold claims located in the Cariboo district are being exploited iu tlie Hastern States in a
very cleverly devised get-rlch-
qulck scheme for the promotor,
but one which can scarcely fail
to bring misfortune and loss to
the hapless investor who is iu
veigled into the pretty spider's
A gentleman whose  history
for the past twenty years or so
reveals some rather    intimate
connection with the courts of
justice of various countries is
offering shares for sale in the
British Columbia gold claims
which his company    controls.
This, of course, is quite legitimate, so far as ft goes.   There
are the    usual pseudo-official
references to the promising indications which tlie claims offer.   The promotor,   however,
goes rather stronger than good
judgment would   sanction   on
Ihis so-called report.   He offers
for sale the gold whicli he states
development of the claims will
reveal.   A properly figured out
schedule appears showing how
many ounces of the    precious
metal an investment   of $500,
$1,000 or more will purchase.
Needless to say, payment   for
the gold is to be made at the
present time, and    with    the
money realized, development is
to be carried on.   In exchange
for the money the usual    engraved certificate is given stating that tlie holder is tlie owner of so many ounces of gold
from the claims, and when delivery of (lie gold is offered, the
investor is given the option of
selling back to the promotors.
The profits on these transactions to the investor are figured up to three   hundred   per
cent, per year. A phenomenally
lucrative    investment— if    it
would only all come true—but
there is little chance of it.   The
history of   this   Wallingford's
undertakings show that his oil
wells are always potential gushers, but never get to that stage;
and his mines are always heavy
producers, not always of mineral ore, but usually of gullible
There ought to be some recourse against gentry of this
kind. His activities are such
that the fair name and really promising resources of
this province are going to
be besmirched in the eyes of
those people who are deluded
Into taking up with the scheme.
The fault ls really their own,
but it would be far more effective to deal with first causes
and curb the man with the
bright idea. The disappointed
investors who put up their good
money and find later they have
paid a high price for engraved
certificates are not going to be
very much interested In B. C.
again. But they may always
be relied upon to give the province a black eye whenever thc
opportunity offers. New York
is a long way from the Cariboo,
but the law is supposed to have
a long arm, and such gentry as
this promotor, who by the way
would seem to boast some Tue-

possibility of them spreadiug into other parts harks back into ancient history lu regard to the Introduction of
game flail of this character into the

about some twenty odd years ago a
movement was set on foot by some of
the local pepole i'or the distribution
of black bass into Windermere lake.
There not being nny commercial salmon spawning iu these parts and not
any trout in tho lake proper by reason of its being too warm for their
liking it was thought that the introduction of small mouthed bass would
bu a beneftth and afford a good line
of sport- Apparently In connection
with otlier inland fishermen tlie question was taken up with the Federal
department of fisheries ai Ottawa. At
that time it was still a moot question
as to whether tlie Inland fishing wat
ers were controlled by the Dominion
provincial governments aud It was
question that cither was willing

introduction of black bass would militate against the propagation of other

people of the Windermere Lake district carried on a campaign for many
years iu hope of having baas spawn
introduced iuto the waters of thia
lake for which on account of it being
warm It is specially good (or producing aud propogatlng. Finally tbey
bent to the more experienced judgment of fishery experts and gave up
the request to have the bass spawn Introduced. Full particulars as to tbe

(registered in Canada), of Bayer Manufacture of Mononcetic-acidester of

act and arrangements were made for
the shipment of black bass spawn to
stock lakes Windermere, Moyie, Long
and Christina, all of whicli lie in the
Interior and towards tlie south of the
main line of tlie Canadian Pacific
Railway. Before the shipment of the
.■pawn was carried through, however,
the matter got into the press and the
provuclal government through Its attorney-general, Hon,. D. M. Eberts,
asked that all shipments of black bass
spawn to provincial waters should be
This request was granted Tn part
and amongst others the Windermere
lako of this district was cut out, but
spawn was placed in Moyle lako and
apparently In Christina lake. Moyir
lake is directly drained iuto the Kootenay river by Moyie river and Christina lake is connected with the Columbia river by the Kettle river.
Wlnlermere lake was left off and
spawn whicli was intended for it was
taken back to Banff and put into lakes
in and about that place and through
the North West Territories.    Without
Willi tliis information In print it is
not necessary to look very far as to
bow these fish are now present in
ilie Koolenay river near to Kootenay
Landing and to tho west arm of that
river for It Is ouly following out the
natural sequence as set out in Mr.
Babcock's report that they would follow up the streams, or down them,
from the place wliere the spawn wilfl
originally deposited, and with their
fighting instinct hold the ground ag
ainst all comers. It Is not necessary
for us to look to the state of Idaho
for tlie persons responsible for them
coming into the Kootenay. It is more
than probable that now they are moving along idiat. before many years
have passed the pioneers will work
ui> through the rough waters of the
rapids of the Columbia river and still
pushing on will eventually reach the
headwaters and enjoy the wai mth a:id
comfort afforded by Windermere lake,
and thus without any further effort
fulfil one of the longings and realize
one of the fish dreams of the earlier
sportsmen of the Windermere Mining
It may be regrettable that these fish
are coming but now that they are In
the waters there stems to be little
possibility of getting them out. As
a fighting fish cither fighting for
their own rights or in search of prey
thoy are too well known to require
any mention. All experts however,
seem to agree they are deadly en-
imles of the game trout and it will
be u struggle for supremacy which
will in the long run possibly go lo
tho  bass.

British Columbia's Future
British Columbia is the western

Pacific Ocean, around and within
whose waters dwell two-thirds of all
mankind. Here lies the Imperial Pacific British Dominion with eight-tenths
of British possessions. The part to
be assigned to British Columbia in the
new world development on the Pacific must depend on her resources and
the stores of energy at her disposal,
particularly of iron and fuel,
Energy anil Resources
Tho following is a statement of her
resources: Timber 400,000.000,000
feet; coal 75 billion metric tons; water power, 24 hours power. 3,000,000 h.

Proved tonnage of 94 millions. Estimated 300 millions.
With all these resources of material and energy at her disposal, the

Talks on Thrift
to Boy Scouts
Thrift is a word which Is uid te
have come into the English language
over a thousand years ago from tne
Scandinavian. It Is the noun of
which "thrive" is the verb, and suggests that success and saving go together. The very word THRIFT ii
a good word to look at. It is an
upstanding word and at once makes
one think of sturdy simplicity, the
kind of quality which one associates
with a Boy Scout. How different
in appearance is its opposite EXTRAVAGANCE, a word whieh at
once suggests as ostentatious irregular character, boastful as well
as wasteful.
Servicer* to Community.
Now thrift means,saving money
and miserliness means saving money,
but they are not the same kind of
saving. The thrifty person saves
money for a purpose, thc mjser saves
money for itself. The thrifty person saves so as to have a bank account against bad limes. His thrift
has for its object Independence and
security, and is therefore in accordance with the Scout law. But miserliness is purely selfish, whereas a
Scout Is told to be thrifty ao that
among other things he may h^e
money with which to help otheri
when they need it. The Scout must
be careful not to carry his thrift
too far. You usually find that the
thrifty person has a bank account,
whereas the miser keeps his money
ln a stocking where it can do no
good because It ia not kept in circulation. The thrifty person puti
his money where It draws Interest,
thus adding to what he already has
got, and also performing a service to
the community.
By letting the community hare
the use of his money while he Is not
spending it, the thrifty person does
a service to the community for which
the community is willing to pay Interest. The community, however,

As head of the Insurance department of the provincial government,
Attorney-General Farris is at presont
engaged in drafting an insurance act
for the province which he states will
materially improve present conditions
of conducting insurance business ln
tho province. Mr- Farris made this
announcement to a gathering of life
underwriters of Canada In convention
at Victoria recontly.
Mr. Farris addressed tho convention
ou "The Investment of money, or difff
CUltloB thut beset widows; or how estates ure dissipated-"
He said thai mothers' pensions, pro-
vldeil by legislation inisscd recently
by Legislature, loused after the widows and children in eases wliere the
father hud failed to realize tho importance or tukiiiK ont Insurance and
therefore tlie two worked to the general  advantage of humanity.
Speaking of tiie proposed bill, in the
drafting of which he invited assistance aud advice of life underwriters.
Mr. Farris said ft would be introduced at the next session and It would
provide that every man carrying on
the insurance business must apply
from the Insurance inspector of insurance a license to do business.
"If business were only a business
of earning a livelihood, tlie government would not consider such legislation. The point that justifies legislation of this kind Is that insuru.ee is
of such importance to the people as
to make lt Imperative that the state
should see o it that they and tne men
engaged in the business are rendered
reasonable pro >.tion against Incompetence and dishonesty."

A first-class planing mill is to be
erected, the equipment to comprise
five new, fast feed planers, and automatic feed tables, two band rusaw*
and the cut-off and rip saw arrangements. Dry shed UO x luO ft. will be
built sepurute from tho planing mill,
but connected by a ylatform.
Thu general office will be 30 x 30
aud a one-storey bungalow type building. A 12 x 22 fireproof vault connect*
ing the offices uud store will be constructed. The store la a twu-storey
building 40 x 70. Upstairs will have
an apartment for tho use of the store
manager aud several additional sleep*
lug rooms for the unmarried olllce
help. A private bathroom will also
bu installed. Downstairs will bu giv
en over to stores and supplies. To
tho rear of the store building aoroi
the railroad track will be a warehouse
40 x 60 two storeys high and a concrete froBt-proof storage building
where all vegetables and perishable
supplies will be handled. A large barn
32x 102, with stalls for forty horses,
has been completed, with concrete
floor and painted a light slate color
with white trimmings. |
The main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway Ib reached by a short spur
to the mill property. A Y switch
glveB the best accommodation to the
mill and shipping and unloading platforms.
Two 750-gallon underwriters' fire
pumps in a separate pumphouse, with
connection to a separate auxiliary fire
holler constitute the main system. In
addition, however, a 50,000-gallou tank
with a sustained gravity pressure at
all times will be erected on tho hill
back of the mill; also an automatic
sprinkler system will be installed
throughout the mill.
Building Model Town for Employees
The hotel building within easy distance of Wattsburg station is now
nearing completion and is a two-storey building 70 x 112, with 38 sleeping
rooms upstairs, all outside rooms
made possible by the light wells In the
back of the structure; downstairs on
the main floor is a private dining
room and the general dining room to
seat 100 people, also 10 more sleeping
rooms. The kitchen has an ammonia
ice-making plant room and three other storage rooms, where meat and
vegetables can be kept in cold-storage.
There Is also bathroom for the help us
well as toilets and washrooms for
boarders. The back portion of the
basement Is given over to a laundry,
and the front section to a barber shop
aud reading and recreation room for
the men.
The townsite is quite distinct on the
bench land overlooking the mill proper. A half a mile of dwellings are
now under construction, aud twenty-
five houses wfll be finished this season. This ground has a growth of
light scattered timber and only such
trees as are in the way of road construction or on tht sites of thc houses
have been cut down. This gives a
particularly restful, shady and protective environment to the townslte.
The houses are four, five and six
roomed buildings, one storey bungalow type uniform design', but an Individual aspect Is attained by the varied
color scheme and slight changes of
the porches in adjoining dwellings-
Every house has a full concrete foundation with basement, and every bedroom has Its own clothes closet; the
spacing between each building has
boen generous and lots of air and
light Is thereby assured, as well assured, as well as a natural playground
close to each home for the families
of the employees. ,
A water supply has been provided
for and filtration system will ensure
pure water at all times.
Timber and Logging Operation
The company has acquired extensive limits and estimate that they
own sufficient timber for a run of
twenty years; this will be brought In
by a water flume of the "V" type,
with 4-foot side supports from a point
thirteen miles west. At the start of
the flume Is the company's Camp 1
This camp has twenty-eight buildings
of the very latest model in camp con
st ruction. The bunk houses are made
to accommodate eight men and are
equipped with the very best steel cots
with springs and good mattresses
There is provision for a wash room
and shower bath, cook house, office,
barn, etc. The location is at the
Junction ot the Moyle and Ridgway
creek, and they have a first-rate
spring back of the camp, with a sufficient capacity to supply the requirements of fresh water the year round.
The water for the flume is taken
from the Moyle Rlvefl, on which a
dam was built las* fall, and side
flumes will be constructed from nine
creeks along the main flume, which
will replenish water. This will overcome the loss from evaporation nnd
other causes and will ensure an ample
supply of water for the entire dls
tance. The flume Ib built to practically maintain a uniform grade of
U to 2 per cent, throughout, which
has entailed the construction ot two

Creston. — The soldier settlement
area at Lister, which has been operating steadily since two years ago, when
it was started, as a payroll proposition—the men being employed at laud
clearing, fencing, house-building, etc.
is gradually being placed on a real
agricultural footing. All the single
men have been dropped from the payroll, as development work Is now
practically complete, and the married
men will likely soon be on the same
status. jAll the soldier farmers now
have five acres under cultivation and
the balance of their twenty-acre holdings In good shape for pasture, while
loans have been made them to purchase stock and Implements. This
policy was adopted at the other settlement area at Mervllle almost a
year ago, and has worked out quite
well; the reaPfarmers in the Mervllle area have stayed with their farms
and the men who could not stand up
to semi-pioneer agricultural effort
have gone elsewhere*
