The area ot British Columbia Is
2,3,000,1101) acres. Practically the
wholo ot the province Is woodeil.
About 30,000,000 acres are covered
with accessible merchantable forest ot
valuable species.
Tho forest in tho past suffered, severely from are. A young forest now
covers about 90,000,000 acres of old
burnB. This young forest is composed of valuable commercial species,
and will reach commeiclal value lu
'10 to 60 years.
The estimated stand of mature timber In British Columbia now Is .ICO,.
000,000,000 feet board measure.
The (renter part of the timber Is
very accessible to transportation.
A largo part of It Is easily accessible
from the 7,000.mlle protected coast
line where are many natural deep
water harbors. The remainder can bo
floated by lake or river to points on
railways uow constructed.
The most valuable limber for the
cargo trade Is found adjacent to salt
water within convenient reach of
harbors. The lower grades of timber
used chiefly In the prairies are found
ln the valleys of the Interior rivers,
and are floated to the various railways serving the prairies.
Two-thirds of the annual cut comes
from within Ave miles of salt water
ou the shore of tho mainland and
neighboring Islands within ISO miles
of Vancouver. Tbe other third Ib
chiefly from the valleys of the rivers
ln the south-eastern corner ot the
The present annual cut for all uses
Is 1,750,000,000 teet valued at about
The annual growth cn the forest
area ot the province Is estimated tc
he between 6,000,000,000 and 7,000,-
000,000 feet. Tbe annual growth may
be treated as a permanent crop. The
non-agricultural lands of the province, whether now covered with merchantable forest or young growth, are
being protected from Ure and will produce this amount of timber annually
in perpetuity.
The Important timber species arc:
Douglas flr, red cedar, hemlock,
Sitka spruce, white Englemann
spruce, western hemlock, yellow pin,,
white pine, yellow cedar lodgepolc
pine, tamarack, balsam flr and yellow
These species exist In sufficient
quantities to supply any trade continuously. They may be furnished in
any sizes the trade could reasonably
demand. From amongst theui rany
be secured timber for almost w.y use;
very strong for any class of conslr'-c-
Hon, heavy or light; durable, for
use where decay ts rapid; with th:
qualities of working, beauty of grain,
adaptability to polish, which lit them
for use ln the interior furnishing ot
first-class residences, offices and

There are now 800 logging camps.
400 saw mills and shingle mills, anil
four pulp and paper mills lo British
Columbia, ln which are Invested $1.-
000,000,000. Thc possible output Is
3.000,000,000,000 feet. The labor di-
■ rectly employed when running «t

value of the product would then be
The products liiuuufuetured in tlie
oredr of their importance are lumber,
shingles, paper and pulp, rough articles such as poles, piles, posts, mining props, and smaller manufacture*
such as sash, doors, boxes, shook.
and cooperage.
The mills and logging camps In
British Columbia have not during the
past three or four years been able lu
run at full capacity. There has nut
been sufficient demand for lumber.
The effect of present conditions
In the lumber market Is felt on Investments ln the province, traffic on rail-
roads, the demand for labor, the market for food and household staples,
machinery and produce. Agricultural
settlement Is affected, as the lumber
Industry clears the land, furnishes
the farmer with employment (n odd
seasons, builds roads, and affords a
profitable market for farm produce
The capacity of the mills and
rumps is 3,000,000,000 feet per year.
The sales from mills In 1913 were
about 1,(00,000,000, one-half the possible. This Is tbe argument for wider
Present Markets
The annual cut the past two or
three years has been distributed as
British Columbia domestic demands
over one-fltth ot cut
Prairie provinces domestic demands over three-fifths of cut.
Other buyers in this order:
Less than one-fifth of cut: United
States, Eastern Canada, Australia and
New Zealand, Africa, China and
Japan, South America, Europe.
The leading features of the British
Columbia situation are:
1. Tbe provincial forests wilt support tn perpetuity a cut 4-5 times as
great as the present annual cut.
3.  The merchantable woods exist
In great quantities, and are suitable
,   for practically all Important uses.

1. Lack of Information ubout British Columbia timbers.
2. Freight rates und transportation difficulties.
3. British Columbia mills, while
numerous and of large aggregate
capacity, are not built and located so
as to handle a large cargo trade. Tliey
are built chiefly wltli an eye to the
railroad trade.
Prompt onniinl statistics showing
the quantities ot different forest products produced, and their value, unnecessary. Such statistics will henceforth be gathered by the provincial
forest branch, whioh, because of its
close contact with the Industry, Is in
a position to get complete uiul accurate Information, These statistics wlll
he complied tor the calondar year.
A survey ot the forest resources ot
the province is tu progress. This wlll
form the basis of statistical Information ou tin' amount of timber available.
oriodlcul exhibitions, Including
Umber, In the United Kingdom and
Dominions would undoubtedly help
the timber trade, Advantage could be
taken uf Ktn-li exhibitions to show
the vurlcty, qualities and uses of
Hritish Columbia timber In such n
manner as to appeal to engineers,
builders and manufacturers,
A permanent exhibition In London
would serve the same purpose.
The department of trade and commerce has Issued a special number of
the weekly report upon the probable
future of Canadian trade In the
Orient. The honorable Sir aeorge
Foster has provided an Introduction
expressed In his usual trenchant
fashion, and pointing out that the
subject Is one which should Interest
avery Canadian.
Sir George says, in part:
"Upwards of 500,000,000 people inhabit China and Japan in a vant
stretch of Island and continent facing
our western front door, Between lies
a facile ocean now beginning ta
quicken beneath the swltt keels of
rapidly Increasing mercantile fleets.
On all grounds'of enlightened business
policy Canada and Canadians cannot
afford to neglect thc great and promising Held which lies so advantageously opposite our western gateways
and which the Panama canal has
prought so much nearer our eastern
The report is written by Mr. R.
Qrigg, commissioner of commerce, and
fully justifies the commendation afforded by the Introduction by Sir
George Foster.
A successful attempt hus been made
to avoid the wearisome character of;
the ordinary Blue Book and the points
dealt with Include both much that ls
new and much that Is true, comprising references to the northward move-',
ment of Pacific const export, the condition of competing countries, the astonishing results of intensive farming
>f a primitive character, and the work
being done by tiie consuls of all nations, wilh n reference to Chinese
Indents and the native press.
The report upon Japan is entirely
different, although equally interesting. Cnnadinns nre reminded that
creat problems likely to profoundly
affect them nro in course of solution
outside the borders of Canada. Copies
ot the report cnu be obtained from the
department of trade and commerce
without charge, and the valuable
weekly rejuvrt of the department deserves the attention of every Canadian. It is circulated without charge
and the experience of tlle United
States nnd Germany Illustrate the
enormous value of tlie work being
done for Canadian export.

Various Depredations In the City Culminate lu Arrest of Three
Cranbrook Boys
Russell St. Eloi, Charles Barnhardt
and Harold Bridges, three young boys
of the city, were arrested during the
past week charged with theft. There
havo been a number of cases of residences and stores being broken into
uiil various articles taken during tbe j
lust two weeks. The city police have
been endeavoring to trace the matter
down witli the above result.
Hussell St. Eloi and Charles Barnhardt were charged with breaking Into the warehouse of A. C. Bowness
and stealing about half of tlie contents of a case of whiskey in small
tln-ks. They were brought before
Magistrate Arnold on Tuesday nnd
Russell St. Biol pleaded guilty and
was placed under suspended sentence, und placed in charge of his
mother on the understanding that she
would Immediately take him out of the
city. Tlie ease of Charles flarn-
hordt wus heard before Magistrate
Vrnold tliis morning nnd lie was sent
up for trial und tlle case, wlll likely be
Heard In the county court next Saturday.
Harold Bridges came before Magistrate Arnold on two separate charges
tliis morning. One wns for breaking
Into the store of the Cranbrook Trading Co. and stealing some harness,
'ind for breaking Into tbe Fort
Steele Co-operative store at Fort
Steele nnd stealing u varied assortment or goods. In connection with
this titter case Walter AVnlsh, of
Kort Steele, Is being sought by thc police as an accomplice. The Cranbrook
Triidlng Co. was broken Into on
July 22nd and tho crime committed
ut Fort Steele lust Friday evening.
The accused has been residing In a
tent about two miles east of the city
und a large part of the -goods taken
wns recovered by the police from the
tent. It is understood that he has
admitted the commission of both
crimes. He was remanded for trial
hy Magistrate Arnold, He is under
suspended sentence of five years for
a similar crime committed a tew
months ago.
The punishment of these boys fall
most heavily upnn their families who
reside here and should teach other
boys of the city with like propensities
to turn from their paths and not to
follow in the footsteps of these unfortunate youths. Boys, in order to
become men, must guard against the
weakness ot their nature and devote
their time to work or study If they
are to become useful citizens. It Is
neither smart or profitable to be a
thief and only by following the
straight and narrow path of strict
honesty can any boy hope to take his
place in the world beside the men of
affairs, who find their greatest happiness In always doing right.

Ottawa, Out., Aug. 1.—-A formal offer of military contingents was cabled
to Kngland today by tiie Canadian
government. An emergency session of
tlie cabinet was presided over by
Premier Borden, who returned to Ottawa by special train to meet his associates und deal with tlie situation
('anada finds herself In as the result
of the European war.
Premier Borden Informed his
soclates he Imd received word that
the Duke of Connaught was hurrying
back from tlie west to give his personal attention to thc critical affairs
which are expected to develop at Ottawa. He is expected to arrive Monday night.

The government unanimously decided to offer England men. Infantry,
savalry and artillery wlll be Included
n any force sent forward, and it
.vould number 20,000 men if translocation could speedily be obtained
or that number. It Is estimated that
vithtn two weeks It would be poslble

md within three months this number
-ould be Increased to 50,000.

Tt Is understood that the govern-

•revent the departure from Canada of

There ure many thousands of them In
.lie countiy, to which they have been
ittroctod by railway construction
vork which has been carried on during the last few years. Word Ib received tliat they are being organized
in bodies for return to Austria to join
their colors aud light the allies of England. It is recognized here that there
may be some difllculty In stopping
them, but those who seclf, to leave
Canada through Canadian ports will
be held, it is Indicated.
A general European war would
mean urnites mustering u strength of

The reason tiiere Is so much speculation ns to the' course events will
take- that ts, as far as there Ih a possibility of u general war ensuing—Is
because the Triple Entente have never
been made public. Only the governments concerned know Just how for
Great Britain Is bound up with her
allies. Spain Is a party to the agree-
1 ment, hut how far, or upon what
' terms, are matters of speculation.
| The Dual Alliance, drawn up In
11879, became a Triple Alliance In 188.1,
when Italy wus admitted. By Its
; terms, each of tiie countries Is bound
to come to the ossistanco of tho others,
; provided it Ih embroiled with another
country and the struggle cannot be
isolated. Another elnuso of the treaty
provides for a division of the spoils of
war. In the present Intance, If Russia finally decides to go to the assistance of Servia, both Germany and
Italy must give their old to Austria,

no means prepared for a serious war
;o soon after her disastrous defeat at
tlie hands of Japan.
Germany brandished her sword,
'.old Russia to keep her hands off, and
che accomplished fuct wus not disturbed. Servia knew then that she
iad lost Bosnia and Herzegovina—un-
'esu the Austro-Hungariaii empire
ihould break up, us many thought lt
must break up, upon the death of
brands Joseph. But to wait for such
i possibility. wns to feed on mere
■runib.s of comfort.
Servia was helpless und resolved to
ibtuiu compensation for her loss ut
the expense of Turkey at the first opportunity, flic opportunity came with
'he recent war between Turkey and
the Ualgan allies. The victory of the
Balkan powers was so complete and
the territory taken so vast tliat "there
was glory enough for all'—glory as
well as spoils.
Servia needed and wanted a port
on the Adriatic. She had one, iu fuct,
■laving captured It. But Austria interposed her veto. She was firm and
ibstinute. She would brook no tittle
iiower of Slav origin and affiliations
on the Adriatic. She would rather
fight than give Servia an outlet that
might be used against her not only
by Servia but by the hitter's mighty
friend and protector, Russia.
Once more Servle yielded; she had
to. Germany backed Austria, and
Russia was not prepared to throw her
hat Into the ring, especially since England and Frtgice and Italy were anxious to prevent the spread of the Balkan war and declined to support Servian claims. This second humiliation
and rebuff served to Intensify Servian
bitterness against Austria.
The sentlmens Ih general and national. This deep aud strong hostility creates a soil favorable to plots
and conspiracies. Whether Servian
nilleials and military men encouraged
tlie conspiracies or even took part lu
tbem. It Is not for n neutral and impartial bystander to say. If there has
been such participation, however, few
will wonder ut It, politic.-, and diplomacy beiug what they are.
At any rate, the bitterness led to tlie
assassinations In the capltul of the annexed provinces, und thut In turn thc
present wur. Sober men hope that
thti war can he limited uud localized.
If It can, thc cost of tin* contest, In
