Words Liken from the (limit
Hook of Universal Experience,
A few days ago a certain man was
waiting for the Soo-Spokane train In
the waiting room at the depot when
lie was approached hy a party whi,
very gracefully engaged him in conversation, The man was the tool
and the "party" was the fellow who
footed the fool. In a few minutes
the party learned that tke man was
hound for Spokane and was a carpenter hy trade, whereupon the party offered the man a job down there emoting a saw milt for a brother ot tho
party aforesaid. Thc man was quite
satisfied and fell in with the ideas of
the party who, about that time, discovered that the train was likely to
he about three hours late. They mutually agreed that there was nothing
the matter with their going down
town and discussing future affairs
over a quiet drink or a mild cigar.
Down they started and near the Hank
of Commerce a financial magnate was
seen counting a wad of money and
cheques big enough to suffocate an
elephant. Let the party of the third
part be called a magnate. The party declared he knew the magnate and
that when last he saw him he was a
book-maker on thc Minoru race track
near Vancouver. Hack went the
party and told the magnate he knew
him well. "Thou Best," replied the
magnate, "1 have heen in the lumber
business here in Cranbrook for the
past four years."
"When 1 saw yon last," declared
the party, "you were a book-maker
on the race track in Vancouver.
More than that, yon got into trouble
about hotting there—skinning the
ring some way or other."
"Well, you have'the drop on yours
truly," said the magnate. "I admit
1 am in the betting Imsiness. Fact
is, I stand in with all ths pool -sellers
in the States and Canada and when
a horse is going to win I get a wire
telling me which of the gee-gees is on
the job, I have a code here with
only initials used for the names of
the horses so that the ginks in the
telegraph offices can't find out what
tlu' right name of the horse is.
The party saveyed all tight He
put on a dollar, and the man, just to
show he was a spoil of tlu1 right
heart, put on another. Away went
the magnate to wire tbe bets and Inside a few minutes back he came
with the monrv doubled Encouraged
hy this wonderful profit the party
lumped the whole four dollars Oh
another ''certainty" and this hot
was also wired nway by the magnate
who again brought them back (heir
money doubled This t imc they
were eight dollars to the good, At
this pome the maginite declared t,hem
boll to he Lw-grude pikers and that
he would not waste his valuable time
wiring their little bets. If they
wanted a decent 1h>1 he was the man
for their money. Then did tbe
party grow wrath and, to prove his
monetary stability, he drew « cheque
on some hank in S{ioknnc for $31)0.
Not to be behind hand tbe man pulled
out Km iu good Canadian money and
gave it to the parly who gave cttOqUo
and cash to the magnate for immed-
inte investment ou another "certainty" he had running that very instant
down in Junto*, Mexico You liet
your life they were going to kn(.ck
the eternal spots off the ring this
time. By Rlld hy hack came the
mugoutc and told the patty and tbe
man ihat there was a song of -lews
banking round the local pool room
(it was supposed to be situated some
where, close to the Fink Mercantile
store)1 and thai they were getting
leary nf his little game and had raised some question about the cheque.
To mend matters it was decided that
nil three were to go at once to Spokane aud there cash the cheque and
gamely "follow their winning hand"
as soon as they had a fund for the
proper destruction ot the sinful book-
makcrs. Before gel ting on the
train it was arranged that the man
was by no means to be seen speaking
to either the party or the magnate;
in fact, they each sat in different
coaches, When tho man got about
as far us I-oeo he went in search of
his friends. They were not on
hoard. The chances are tbey never
left the Cranbrook station. They
have not been seen since, neither has
the man seen his good looking fifty
dollars. Me has the experience.
The magnate and the man have the
coin.    The wickedness of moo traus-
cends the duplicity of his satanic majesty.
A fellow named Thomas Gatcly has
been sent up for trial by .fudge Ryan
charged with gpttlng the cash tor
three cheques purporting to be signed
hy Mr. Hanson, of Wasa, one for $10,
another for $31 and a third for $10.
Easy money, easily conic by and easily spent. Gatcly went around, that
was thc day of the municipal election,
having the greatest time ot his life.
No sooner, apparently, had he blown
in tla» proceeds of one elieojue than he
went and drew another. It was a
splendid game ami beat working by
about the length of a city block. Hut,
brfore the drink was half out ot his
head, Charlie Baxter und Louis Mao-
donald, naih'd him, and what will
happen will happen.
One Smith or Kilbey, on this same
memorable election day "tttiohed"
one of our loading citizens tor tho
usual $10 on a cheque drawn un the
Bank of British North America, Port
Arthur. Thc strange thing* about
this case is that there is no branch
ot the Bank of British North America in Port Arthur. Smith, or Kilbey, is now lying in the city police
cells awaiting his preliminary Investigation.
Lastly, there is the case of a
young chap named -Jasper Mosicr.
This kid will not be seventeen years
of age till April next, but what he
does not know about the gay life Is
not knowledge apparently. He engaged two rigs by calling up the livery
barn over the 'phone and telling thc
man in charge they were wanted by
one of our most prominent professional men. He got them and used
them to prove his "plutocracy" to a
certain light-of-love who very promptly informed. the owner of the rigs
that Mosicr was sailing under false
colors.    He was laid by the heels in |
double   quick   time and is now down ^'^^ par(lclpate ln tho

It was a jolly crowd, intent upon

Immediately, in order to dispose of
the long list of resolutions, which
made up the programme for the session.
It was found inconvenient to bold
any meeting on Tuesday evening, and
as tlie town was all excitement over

few minutes, it was decided that tho
delegates should defer business until

he will get a similar sentence this

their men in every one of them except where the liim-flnm artists were,

given by Mrs. Wallinger's orchestra,
of this city, and the music supplied,

Mir. Wattes WaWb, certainly delighted)
all the dancers, from far and near.
The costumes were very pretty
and, in some cases, displayed rare
taste and considerable artistic skill.
Special prizes were awarded to the
following, by the judge, President
Starkey of the Associated Boards of
Trade ot Southeast Kootenay:
"Thc Beauty of Ireland," Miss
"The (told Bust Twins," .Mm and

Following the reading of the credential committee's report, the president's annual address was read.
This proved to lie a very comprehensive document, specially prepared]
with thc idea of showing what, the
organization had accomplished in the
past, and outlining the work for the
future. The address was referred tu
tlie customary committee to review
and report.
Below we reproduce the ehief features of Mr. Slurkey's able and exhaustive address:

Fort Steele hoard is one of the oldest affiliated with the association,
ami since thc inauguration of that organization has regularly sent representatives to our conventions, no
matter in which part of the district
ihey haw been held. , Furthermore,
their delegates, at all times, have
displayed an intelligent and comprehensive knowledge of matters under discussion.
One reason, possibly, why we have
not visitpd Fort Steele previously
for thc annual convention, may have
been through the lack or direct railway connections. However, at the
last year's convention, when they submitted an invitation to bold tho
1913 meeting in Fort Steele, it was
shown toy the unanimous vote, that
their ambitions were fully appreciated. Thc delegates will feel that the

little regarding the years preceding

The following brief account will, I

Captain Armstrong says:
"I saw Fort Steele, or as It was

unbroken and there was about eighteen inches of snow ou tlie ground.

Wild Horse. \ letter addressed
Kootenay found its way after many
days to that mining camp four miles
from Fort Steele, H was to get
some of these letters that we had
come over 2nd miles from Moberly.
The mail was apparently delayed so
we  waited there for nearly a month,
About the first of March, Ned Bray
came in from Bonner's Berry and
brought us the first news wc had received of the outside world since October. Next day wc went an.und
to sec our neighbors, First to tin*
ginld commissioner, William Fernie,
who treated us most hospitably, and
told us there was only one man with
whom we should shake hands, in thc
country, and that was John (lalJ
bra ill i. All the others he said were
had, especially the priest. We found
the information was corrtct concerning John Galbraith.
"Our horses having strayed near
the Mission, we thought we would
go and sec if the priest lived up to
his reputation. It was not altogether a surprise to find thai the rcver
end Father was a better man than
Fcrnie himself. He insisted on oui
spending the night there and alto
gcthcr treated us royally.
"Young as I .was, the truth was
borne in on me that in these small
and isolated communities the ha<(
points are the ones which are noticed
and the really good qualities and
sterling are left for the stranger to
find out.
"Fort Steele was not at all new at
that time. The house that Tommy
Baker wanted to put us in was built
hi 1863, tlie ferry, being the only
one within many miles, and on 'he
direct route from Walla Walla, has
made It a very important' point.
"Wild Horse, which had produced;
somewhere around $15,000,001) in
gold, was pretty well worked out,
hut thc old ideas obtained in many
and curious ways. For instance,
pepper was still $4.09 a pound and
bacon, sugar, salt, etc., three pounds
for $1.00. There was absolutely no
currency in the country. If one
made a purchase he handed his poke,
big or small, and the storekeeper
took what he wanted out of it.
"How much the Associated Boards
of Trade have improved on those old
time methods is not for me to say,
but I remember that they were very-
happy days."
Last year our convention was held
in Hossland, "The Golden City,"
where thc citizens, board of trade,
and tbo club members excelled themselves, showering kindness and hospitality upon us. In this connection)
I cannot refrain from mentioning the
thoughtrulncss of Messrs. Stewart!
and I'urcell, and other members of
the staff of the Consolidated Mining
Co.,' who showed our delegates
through the many miles of tunnel,
and wonderful mines—some 2,800 feet
deep—the Center Star, War Ragle
and the Old Le Hoi; the latter bidding her "majestic bead" as the leading producer ot golden bullion,
which supports thc wonderful city s,,
properly named "Golden." (
Last year's meeting at Hossland
was indeed a signal success. After
thc president and vice-president's addresses had been delivered, thc secretary-treasurer's statement adopted,
am) the officers elected.for the ensuing year, a telegram was forward.il
to A. II. Mackenzie, who was absent
on account of sickness, notifying him
>f his re-election, and wishing him
a speedy recovery.
ln speaking of this resolution, ii is
shown that approximately 30,000
acres, of land, contiguous lo Creston,
Is subject to a yearly overflow.
Therefore the provincial govcrnment|
was petitioned to grant n sum of
money for the purpose of having un
engineer or commission duly appointed with a view of reporting on

A memorial addressed to the Rt,

It will be our duty to endorse this
memorial for the purpose of assisting the mine, owners. The bounty
extension may not he looked upon
with favor by the present Dominion
government, yel wc can claim exceptional consideration ou account of
the amount of our bounty not being

The continuance of the experimental work, adopted by the late government upon their grant of $50,000, ami

think I am safe in saying it would

It might also he admitted thai lo
some wctcnl the dillidence shown by
our fanner friends of the prairie provinces, |(\ confining themselves practically to grain growing, may be responsible for the high price of articles they produce, but not in sfifll-
cient quantities. I believe that they
would make nn important factor iu

excuses as to tbe "scarcity cry,"
made by tlicsc combines, in meat and

stronger diversified farming policy.
The government   wot » justlM   wl":n «"y<hinB was at
in any expenditure which il might
make toward aiding the farmers in
the experiment of raising cattle,
sheep, swine, poultry ami general
dairy products, all of which would
have a tendency to increase the farmers' income, if properly inartoetod!

societies of their own, The government could be of great assistance In
the organization of such associations,
and by such aid, would cnooUrngc and

true the Consolidated company has

ihe solution is assured and further
the producers of this class of ores
may be congratulated that this company are the owners of the rights.
However, when one looks hack on
the conditions a few years ago compared with the present time it is
easy to understand that wc have
much to he thankful for. The excellent work of the Consolidated company which came just al a time
low ebb, saved the situation by
keeping the smelter at Trail running,
thereby encouraging mine owners to
continue their production instead of
closing down many of the most valuable properties now in operation,
While the idea prevails that a more
economic treatment may be discovered, all that we may reasonably
hope for in thc meanwhile is that
the Consolidated company will lose

come about as predicted in my mineral resources for the province, of
$32,600,000, an increase over 1011
of $0,216,000; the Kootenays and
Boundary country $17,014.8.73, close
upon $4,000,000 gain over 1911.
II is safe to assume the increase
for the interior would have lieen
much larger if Ihe coal production
had run to its normal possibilities,
but owing to the Crows Nest companies, failing to have things iu
good running shape after the protracted strike, and a claim of short
age of cars, which in some Instances
amounted to the partly closing down
of the mines, nnturally eurti.ilrd the

Slacan railway aud also thc con-
HagiuLioii which destroyed Ihe mining buildings of Lucky Jim, Hie
White Water group, and other proper
tics' buildings, all of which had the
efiect of limiting tbe production.
Last year I referred to Prof. A,
Gordon French as having proven
beyond a doubt, that the ores of this,
district carried a number of noble
metals, such as platinum, canadium,,

slightest any of the credit due to
Prof. French for tne magnificent
work In connection with finding this

right to mention that such eminent,
men as Frederick A, Johnson, superintendent of the L. L. White Dental
Manufacturing company, ,lf Prince

connected with the Island Smelting
and Refining Co., Ltd., W. K. Newton, assaycr for Van Roi Mines,
Silverton, and K. W. Widdowson,
provincial assayer. Nelson, have endorsed Ihe positive contention us
stated by Prof. French, that the
platinum metals are here in paying
Dr. Island in referring to erection
>f plants in the province says that
he is not in a position to state what
the cost of such a plant would be,
bul iu view of the value of our ores
and the cheapness of the process for
separating and extracting tne metals,
there arc innumerable financial possibilities for those who are fortunate
enongl) to possess ores containing
these noble metals. .
Before concluding this report I cannot refrain from extending on behalf
ot the Associated Hoards, our extreme regret at tlie continued illness
of our secretary-treasurer, Mr, A. H.
Mackenzie, whose position has tcm-
porily been so ably filled by Mr.
Kemp. My personal thanks are
due to the members of the executive
and delegates, who have attended tho
conventions under my presidency during the past three years, for the val-
able support 1 have received at all
times and I trust that the same generous support will be given to the
newly elected officers.     It has heen a
oii'tinual source of pleasure to me t0
carry on my onerous duties, which I
have endeavored to perform always
n the best interests of the districts
■oiniug within tbe jurisdiction of the
Associated Hoards of Trade, and at
the same time to make our force
widespread—provincial and federal.
Relieve me, gentlemen,
Faithfully yours,
K. A. Slarkey.
The Right Honorable R. L, Harden,
P.C., Premier of Canada,
Sir: We, the undersigned, who have
heen producers of lead ore since the.
nceplion of the Lead Bounty Act, or
,vho an* dependent on the marketing
of ore upon the lead smelling Industry respectively request your favorable consideration and that of your
cabinet to the following memorial:
1. That thc lead mining industry is
a very important one to the Dominion, and especially to British Columbia, but it is handicapped, and is
entitled to a considerable degree of
■ucourugement for the following realms:
(a). Thc distance from market;
the greater part-of the lead produced
has to be hauled praelically the
width of the continent to the large
manufacturing centres of the east.
(h). The high rate of wages imposed upon tbe industry by the scale
current in similar mines in the United States, which mines by reason of
tbe United States lead tariff obtain
far higher prices for their product;
the average difference during the ten
\ears ended with 1011 being over
$20,000 per ton.
tc). The tariff upon supplies and
machinery used by those engaged in
the industry.
2. That thc lead bounty, which
will be discontinued under thc present act on June 30, 1013, has by insuring a stable minimum price, been
exceedingly beneficial to the lead mln-
ng industry, so much so that without the advantages so obtained the
industry would have been completely
crippled. This bounty, if renewed,
will continue to benefit and stabilize
the industry, but the logical and permanent solution seems to be thc imposition of such duties upon lead as
will he the equivalent of the present
duty and bounty. Compensating increases in the duties upon lead iu its
manufactured forms will then also be
3. That without the aid of such
additional duties or the continuance
ot the bounty, the inducement to
spend the large sums which arc necessary in exploration and development will cease; thc present reserves
In our mines will he exhausted, after
intermittent operation, and the lead
mining industry will cease to exist.
I. The undersigned, therefore, respectfully request that you appoint a
special commission to enquire thoroughly, into the form and extent ot
permanent encouragement to the lead
industry, and that this commission
might also properly consider some
form of encouragement to the zinc
mining industry, zinc mining being
closely allied to lead mining, and at
present conducted in British Columbia under very great difficulties.

that tho present Lend Bounty Act,

1. This board recommends Uia
the government should establish an
infirmary for persons who are incapacitated from earning their own
living, through accidents in thc industries of the province, or while
prospecting or pioneering, or, in case
of blindness, that a teacher be employed, that they may learn some
trade which will enable them to become self-supporting.
2. That the building of tho inter-
provincial highway between Trail,
Hossland und the Boundary and contributory territory be opened up during thc coming season; that the B.C.
Telephane company be compelled by
thc provincial government to follow
the trade road and establish stations
every five miles through unsettled

Whereas, the conditions as to altitude, soil and climate, from an ag-
I [cultural point of view, differ greatly in the interior from those found
ou the Lower Fraser, therefore be it
resolved that the minister of agriculture of the Dominion be nii'moralizcd
by our executive to establish in the
south eastern portion of the province
experimental farms on lines similar
to that at Agassi/., and that a copy
of this resolution be sent to the mem.
hers representing the interior districts, and to Hon. Martin Burrell,
minister of agriculture, with a re-
ijuest that they exert their influence

1. Whereas there is at present in
existence a telephone lined owned by
Ihe Dominion government and in operation between the village of Oolden
on the north and the various settlements in the Windermere district to
the south of (Jolden;
I And whereas there is a system of
company owned telephone line between   Cranbrook and Wasa,     which
'\Vasa lies to the south of said Windermere district;
I And whereas there lies between
these two parts a stretch cf country
' many miles in extent which up to tlie
! present, is, generally speaking, but
sparsely populated—too sparsely populated, in fact, to warrant a local
line of telephone being built at the
present time;

I Therefore be it resolved that it is
the opinion of this meeting of the
Associated Hoards ol Trade of Eastern British Columbia that the Dominion government extend their sysU'in
to connect with the one owned by
the private company, and that they
lie and hereby are asked to take this
subject into serious consideration.
| Further that the secretary be asked to send a copy of this motion to
the minister of public works tor the
Dominion of Canada, and to the superintendent of Dominion government
telephones at Ottawa, Ontario, and
to R. F. Green, M.P., asking that
this consideration be given,
2. Whereas it is a generally recognized practice in other provinces of
the Dominion of Canada that the
"rule of the road is to turn to the
And whereas in this province it is
tlie "rule of the road to turn to the
left," thus leaving open greater
cluuiccs fi r accidents through collision on    account     of tlu- number of
■   tlie
strange drivers who will he travelling through this province, and who
arc generally more familiar with the
"Uiru to the right rule."
Therefore wc, the Associated
Hoards of Trade of Eastern Hritish!
Columbia learn with great satisfaction thai there is a movement on
foot to ask thc provincial government to indjee the "turn to the
right" practice throughout this province;
Further, that we heartily
this movement and pled@c
every support.
Whereas, at the convention
Associated Hoards of Trade,
last year, there was brought up the
question of building a wagon road
across the SoMrks, through Karl
Grey (Wells) Pass;
And whereas no definite work of
construction on said wagon road lias
been commenced;
And whereas the construction of
this road would be a step in th.1 way
of finally constructing an automobile
route over said pass and of making
communication between the Ea«t and
West Kootenays;
Therefore it is the wish of tho
Associated Hoards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia that tbe question of the propositi wagon road ho
taken up with tho provincial government and that
they' lie pressed t o consider
and that they be pressed to consider
the question of cnrrylng out si»me
construction thereon.
Further, tbat copies of this motion
be sent by the secretary to the various ministers of tbe crown, to whom
the petition of last year was sent.
At the conclusion of ihe reading oi
the president's address, general business was taken up.
The auditor's report was presented, showing a small deficit, for
which steps were taken to have il
wiped out.
Some little discussion then arose
as to the dropping out of the Cranbrook and Fernie hoards of trade,
from the association, and it was decided to take earnest efforts i"
bring them both back, within the
fold. In union is strength, was the
president's closing remark mi this
A communication from W. A. Ans-
tle, of Calgary, secretary of the
Mountain Lumbermen's Protective
association, expressed his regret at
his inability to attend, and exlended
an invitation to tlie members of the
convention to attend tbe lumbermen's
banquet to be held in Nelson on Friday, February 7th.
After due consideration, in th.'
course of which several excellent addresses were delivered by various delegates, the above resolutions were
adopted, and, in addition, certain
minor resolutions were also passed.
It is impossible to publish at this
moment anything lihe a full report
of tbe discussions, or even to give all
tho resolutions under discussion- In
this connection it must he pointed
out that our report of the president's address is very greatly curtailed.
Following upon the disposal of resolutions came the election of officers for thc ensuing year.
For president:
There were nominated for this office: Fred Starkey, 11. Geigerieh and
Geo. Buchanan, the vote wns distinct
ly in favor ot Mr. Starkey's retention in office for yet another year.
For Vice-I'rosident—Mr. II. (lelg-

j further minor business, the session
closed, with the singing ot Auld
Lang Syne, and the National Anthem.
Adjournment was made to the dining    room   of the   Imperial    hotel,
where Mine Host Hen Werden,      had
everything iu   readiness  for a    very
' delightful   bnnuuet, over   which   Mr.

I new arrivals were noted around    the
festive hoard,    including   Messrs. J.
P.     Fink,    W.   Halsall   and   A. E.
Ample justice was done a very excellent menu, and then for several
hours, in fact until the early hours
of the morning, there was a (low of
eloquence from many among those
present, who bad had an adequate
opportunity of expressing their views
at the business sessions,
j Thc toast list was not lengthy,
and opened, of course, with "Tlie
King." "Our Guests," was the
second toast, to which Messrs.
Zwickev, Brady, Lowenberg, Noble
I Binns and E. S. IL Winn, responded.
Then came the toast to "Our Dom-
' iuion,"    which   elicited specially interesting talks from G. 0. Buchanan,
j and A. E.    Watts, the latter distinguishing himself, by a very clear and
forcible   review* of   the     Associated
Hoards   of    Trade   work   in recent
! years,   criticising   here and praising
there.     Mr. Watts made some excellent suggestions   for future sessions,
including one for     the establishment
of commercial courts, .presided    over
by   practical business men, at which
no lawyers    would be allowed      to

pretty fully,  bis ideas of government

the course pursued in Denmark      in
this connection.

Mr. Brady, of Windermere, W. Halsall. Eassie, Btngay, Scott
Bcvan, of Creston.
"Auld Lang Syne," followed
ihe National Anthem, brought a
very enjoyable banquet in a finish^
..uuiewhere around 2,:h) a.in. Thursday morning.
With one accord the several delegates expressed their hearty appreciation of all the kindnesses shown
to them by tho citizens of Fort
Steele. It was the lirse visit of
many to this lively little berg, and
I hey did not hesitate to express
their delight In the beautiful surroundings. It is quite evident that
Fort Steele's days of recuperation,
after the big gold rush, of some
years back, is about complete. There
are still good prospects of rich mines
around the old town, bul, from the
general conversation of tho Foil
Steele business men and property
owners, it would appear to be their
intention to engagq rather in rustic
pursuits than return to the fascinating game of developing claims. The
territory surrounding Foil Steele is
rich, in every respect'for successful
agricultural pursuits.
It certainly was good io ride into
Fort Steele on the rails, ami it
should mean a lar^e access of prosperity to the residents ot the little
town, now tiiat tourists can ride on
a Ir.iin from Vancouver ri^bt into
what is probably the pretties! situated settlement iu this province of
beautiful vistas.
The Epworth League will meet on
Tuesday evening next at S p.m. in the.
Methodist church, under tht; direction
of ihe citizens' department. A de*
hate on the subject of "Canada's
Navy Question" will he the principal
diversion. Mr. A. Cameron will
speak on the affirmative and Mr.

The Quebec tobacco growers often
experience difficulty in the spring in
rearing good healthy tobacco seedlings. In bulletin No. A-13 of the
Tobacco division, entitled "Quebec
Tobacco Experimental Stations. Season 1911," Mr. Chevalier sets forth
the advantages of the "warm bed,"
he has been using for the last three
years at the St. .Jacques l'Achigan
station. This bed is more economical than the "hot bed," as it does
not require manure, it is not so
damp, and enables the young plants
to be kept in a much healthier atmosphere that is more favorable to
their normal development.
This bulletin also contains an account of the work carried on at the.
St. Jacques l'Achigan and St.
Cesaire stations. The results obtained at tht.«; stations show the
importance of a rotation of crops
and the advantages of the use of
chemical fertilizers to supplement
the inadequate applications of manure generally made in the province of
Quebec. Particular attention has
been given to the growing of seed

fit of nearly 92,500,000 in 1H12 Besides these, Evan Thomas, HudclilTe
and company, with thirty vessels,
made a profit of $1,500,000; W, .1.
Tatein and company, with twenty;
steamers, a profit ot $1,055,000, and
W. and C, T. J&nes, Ltd., with eleven ships, a prolit of $340,000.
There is every likelihood that ihe
flourishing conditions in the Kuphsb
shipping industry will continue. One
shipowner has refused an oftei of
$120,000 for a steamer of about
4,800 tons dead weight, which he
bought three years ago for $Kr>,008.
A steamer of 0,000 tons which cost
$150,000, was completed not long
ago, and on the average made a pro-
lit of $500 per day.
' Tonnage is still in demand, hut
shipbuilders are accepting delivery.
Prices are abnormally high In
fact, such has been the advance      In
| values that a vessel of 7,500 tons,
uow in course of construction on the
Tyne, has been sold for $290,000, as
compared with $180,000 paid for     a
j boat built to tbe same specifications
in 1909.
WORTH $509,437,000 WERE GROWN
Ottawa, Ont., Jan 21.—Pinal estimates of tbe yield and value ol the
principal field crops of Canada for
the season of 1912, issued by tbe department ot trade and commerce, upon the total area under Held crops,
shows that 32,474,000 acres were
harvested. Tbe value is calculated
on average local market prices, to
make a total ot 1509,437,000.
The area under wheat last year
was 9,758,000 acres, of which 781,-
000 acres represent the harvested
area of fall wheat, grown principally
in Ontario and Alberta, but also to
a limited extent in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. The
total production of wheat was 199,-
236,000 bushels, valued at $123,522,-
000. Tbe fall wheat production was
18,396,000 bushels, valued at $13,-
735,000. Oats upon 9,161,000 acres
yielded 361,733,000 bushels; valued at
$116,996,000. Barley over 1,415,000
acres yielded 41,174,000 bushels, valued at $20,105,000, and flax, 1,677,-
SOO acres yielded 21,681,500 bushels,
valued at $19,626,000. Comparisons
with 1911 show that the results ol
last .Tar's harvest both as to yield
and value were upon the whole inferior. The average prices realized on
most crops were somewhat less,
while the yield Irom wheat, rye,
peas, beans, and corn for busting,
were also lower. On tbe other hand
oats yielded about 13,500,000 bushels
more than in 1911, and other crops
also show more or less excess yield.
The three northwestern provinces of
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, had a production of wheat of
183,322,000 bushels, compared with
194,083,000 bushels in 1911; of
oati, 221,758,000 bushels, compared
with 212,819,000, and ot barley, 26,-
671,000 bushels, compared with 24,-
043,000 bushels. The conditions affecting live stock were much the
same as in 1911. Mild weather
through to Christmas enabled tbe
fanners to economize in feeding supplies, and live stock entered winter
quarters in excellent condition.
London, .Ian. 21—Thc present year
will see a record in British warship
building. The naval dockyards and
great shipbuilding firms have already
twelve battleships and battleship
cruisers In hand tor the navy, apart
from vessels nearly completed. In
addition, there are six battleships or
battleship cruisers building ln England for foreign powers. II ten new
ships are ordered this year, as is expected, there will be twenty-eight armored ships of the largest size building in this country, with displacement ot over 850,000 tons.
Thc completion ot this enormous
fleet with speed will demand most
careful organization. It is rumored
that there must be serious delays in
construction. Already the recent
British programmes are heavily in
arrears. 6
Thc difficulty which confronts both
dockyards and private firms is to obtain the skilled labor required tor
ship construction. There is an insufficiency ol workers at the dockyards, where day and night shifts, as
well as overtime, are being worked.
All indications suggest that the admiralty will have to revise Its calculation that the largest battleship
can be built in two years.
Cardiff shipowners are rejoicing in
prosperous times. It Is estimated
that Ave hundred vessels which belong to that port, earned a clear pro-

he can claim the heavy-weight championship of the world. I was the
last recognized white champion. I
was never knocked out by Johnson
and I am still in the game. Two
years ago McCarty came to mc and
wanted me to look him over. 1
watched him work out and gave him
some encouragement. He recognized
me then us the white champion. I
don't see where he has a ghost of a
chance to claim that honor now unless lie consults mc."
In these words did Tommy Hums
formally defy the claim of Lullier
McCarty to thc heavyweight championship. Not only did he defy him
verbally, hut he started active training yesterday afternoon in No. 4
Ever since before Christmas the

Burns expects a busy year with
several big matches in sight. The
Bombardier Wells match which was
announced for Calgary some time
ago has practically fallen through
because ol the inability ot the promoter to turn his real estate holdings into cash and Burns refused to
post his deposit until the money was
placed in the strong box of a local

the affair was serious enough in his

Uoldcn, II. 0., Jan 32.—Whether
numerous residents ot Kootenay have
been victimized by a swindle or
whether the postal authorities at
Winnipeg have been negligent in their
duties is a question over which W.
J. Wright of Golden is concerned.
Early in December advertisements
were sent to local papers throughout
this territory by the Winnipeg branch
of the Empire Oil company. Tho copy
was accompanied by a request that
the account be sent to the head offices
at Indianapolis. It called lor a half
page and offered a barrel of oil containing 48 imperial gallons for $11.55
with which was to be given a parlor
lamp free. Mr. Wright is one of
many who sent tbo above sum to
P. O. Box 2196, Winnipeg, but is
still waiting lor his shipment. A
letter sent by him ashing why the
oil was not sent has been returned
by the dead letter office marked "Out
ol business." If this is the true
state ol affairs residents ot Kootenay
are probably minus several thousand
dollars, as the advertisement appeared in tlie majority of local papers
published in this county. There may
[be some mistake, but thc returned
'lotter was addressed identically to
the one containing the money and no
acknowledgment whatever has been
received.—Golden Star.
The Herald carried this ad. along
with many other papers of British
Columbia and we desire now to
warn readers that thc concern is
either "out of business" or a swindle.
A letter addressed by the Herald to
the number given was returned by
the dead letter office marked "out ol
■business." Wo hope none of our
readers have been victimized and
warn all not to send money to thc
address given in advertisement.
London, Jan. 22.—Huge industrial
disputes which will dwarf the great
strikes of the past are likely to occur in the war future, according   to
Lies in That Cough and Weak,
Worn-out Condition.
Grippe, pleurisy, pneumonia, these
are greatly to be fearad at this time
of the year.
To prevent grippe from being followed by either pleurisy or pneumonia, it is important to drive the last
traces of it out of the system quickly.
Our advice is to take Vinol, our
delicious cod liver and iron preparation without oil, and get your strength
and vitality back quickly.
Mrs. A. A. Grabill, or Strastmi;:.
Va. says: '•Grippe left me weak, run
down and with a servere cough, from
which I suffered four years. I tried
different remedies, but nothing seeuipd
to do me any good until I took Vinol,
from which I received great benefit.
My cough is almost entirely gone, and
1 am strong and well again, and I am
glad to recommend Vinol to others
who suffer as I did."
Try Vlnol with the certainly
that If It does not benefit
you wa will give back your money.

Mr. Tillet gave his views of the New

against them. Younger men are rising up impregnated with the Socialist idea; they arc full of energy and
initiative. One of their first efforts

Knit Steele did herself proud in
entertaining thc delegates to the
fifteenth annual convention of the
Associated Hoards of Trade of South
Eastern Hritish Columbia. These are
thus nf renewed hope and cheer In
tlie old burg. Thc men who know
tne district surrounding the town
best, are full of confidence in an early
resumption oi mining activities, there,
are big propositions ill sight and
now that the transportation obstacle h.is been removed, tilings
should go along In tho liveliest manner       Many ol tho old timers      in

Switzerland can offer nothing    more
attractive,    can   be   secured.      Wo
look for hig things    doing in      this

There is one little incident in connection with the recenl session of

which Ye   must   draw special atten-

fad was peculiarly noticeable when

tlrat the business men of these two
cities ever permitted some petty
misunderstanding or Imaginary grievance, lo cause them to drop oil I of

no way to work lor the ties! interests of the sections or the province in which they are mainly interested. Before another session of the
Hoards is held, il is to be hoped
thai the members generally of thc
hoards of trade of these two cities
will have taken up tills matter and
determined upon a policy of united
effort. "In union is strength,"

JANUARY   I1TH, 1»13.
Many a reader of Holy Writ has
thrilled as he read the story of l>aviit
and the Philistines, and single Wnd-
ed, his overthrow of the wicked
Goliath, Tho talc has grown- more
precious the further it recedes into
tbe obseurity of the ages that are
K<*ie, and there seems to be a feeling
tbat auch   great enterprises were all
>n lined to an earlier era. Once in a
long while an incident occurs to
show that there flro still heroes ilwrn
of the order of David, ready to at
tuck thc Ooliaths of a revised vet
i. There is a very good example
ill this prnvince today of a light just
is unequal as thc old scriptural houl
referred    lo The   modern   David
stands forth   in the person ol Mr. A.
E. Watts, president ul the Wftttsburg
Lumber Co., Ltd., whieh has mills at
Wulisburg and Proctor, B.C., while
his entrenched and powerful enemj
is alleged to be the Canadian Pacific
railway. The light is ou to the
finish. While David's weapon was;
a sting, Mr. Watts is depending on
publicity and the Dominion Railway
coimimston. ln regard to the former, he believes he is relying ou a
broken reed. He charges that many
of the newspapers iu this province are
subsidized. I would not be surprised if there were some truth in the
assertion. For the most part the
newspapers in Hritish Columbia are
young utui struggling enterprises, aud
like to tight on tbe side of the
strongest battalions.
Thc G.P.R. has had a bald on the
province lor a quarter of a century,
or, practically ever since it amounted to any thins. It insisted on much
before it. would run the line across
the Rockies, and iu many of the B.C.
towns and cities through which thc
line runs, including Vancouver, the
company owns about everything. To
be fair, however, it is only right to
admit that the province owes much
of its development to the C, J'. R,
Tlie rapid development of the prov-,
ince and the inability of the company t(i keep up with the growth,
have produced much bitterness
against the line, and for some years
the average Hritish Columbian, has
devoted a portion of his evening
prayer to a petition for much needed
railway competition. Tho prayer
will soon be answered, and it tlteti
remains to be seen if the C.P.R. will
continue its present attitude west of
the Rockies. Up to the present it
has had no competition in the matter of freight rates, and the charge
has been made frequently that this
province has been discriminated
against both in passenger and
freight rates. Tbe complaints have
been loudest from the interior. Even
today, freight is shipped from Montreal to Vancouver and then back
from here to points in the interior a
few hundred miles east, cheaper than
if shipped directly to the interior designation point. Mr. Watts is one of
the few men in a business where tlie
company could put on the screws
who has had the courage to make his
complaints public. lie charges more,
than discrimination- id freight, rates,
and he has carried his troubles to
the railway commission several:
times. Now he alleges that the
company is retaliating by refosing
to give him cars for Ihe transportation oi his lumber. The feeling in
his own district toward him is voiced editorially in the Nelson Daily
News, which this week says: "Mr. A.
!•:. Watts has several important matters before the meeting of the railway commission held here, Many of
these were matters of public interest
which Mr Watts took up without
any possibility of any direct return
or benefit to himself more than to
the public generally.
The railway commission sat in
Nelson recently. Mr. Watts presented a petition asking that the
commission shall he given extended
powers aud jurisdiction, and that it
shall have the power to compel railways to recompense those who sutler
loss by the injustice perpetuated by
railway corporations. Also that
the commission be given power to
investigate the financial methods
adopted by railways, and that no appeal he allowed against the decision
of the board except by permission of
Hie premier of Canada. He alleged
discrimination in the distribution of
cars to shippers, and that the company bad not fulfilled promises, made
to .the applicant mid to the late
Judge Mabee in the matter ol restoring certain roads. Orders desired
by Mr. Watts included all that»
railway companies in Canada be
compelled to supply small box cars
of from six lo ten tons capacity;
that tbey be compelled to restore
public roads destroyed hy them; that
the C.P.R. he compelled to restore a
steamer landing and buildings alleged
to have been destroyed by the company; that railway companies tie
compelled to provide proper cattle
guards and crossings and fence their
rights-of-way through settled districts; that the C.P.R. be compelled
to produce certain witnesses who are
alleged to have been shipped to
Italy, etc. He also urged that the
railway commission use Its influence
iu investigating and making known
to the public thc amount of "watered stock disposed of by Ihe various
railway corporations," and in preventing the C.P.R. from securing a
further extension of time for the
Completion of the Crows Nest Pass
railway, lie also asked the commissioners as to thc most effective
way ol preventing the II, C, government from paying the C.P.R- tor the
return of (and grants which he
claimed the company never earned.
In support of his claim ol discrimination in the matter of supplying cars,
Mr. Walts said he had experienced a
Shortage in -Inly, August and September last, ami asserted the company had made a dead set against
him ever since he had brought the
railway liefore the railway commission four years ago. In .July, he
received 17 cars, in August 2» cars,
ml In September 19 cars. In October he was kept for ten days without cars, but the company had
rushed in IK cars after he had wired
to the railway commission. The
commission issued an order that M.

quiry into the charge. Decisions on
the other points raised were reserved. There is no doubt that Mr.
Watts deserves credit for his campaign, and tic has earned the gratitude of many business men in his
own province.
A great deal of attention has been
devoted by thc prcsB generally to the
proposed extension of the parcels
post system in the Dominion. As
some of our contemporaries, mainly
Conservative sheets, have attempted
to give the credit of this idea to
Hon. Mr. Pel letter, the present postmaster general, it is only fair that
the readers of the Herald, should be
placed in possession ot the actual
facts. For that purpose we reproduce here certain extracts from
Hansard, the official report of the
proceedings in the house of commons, dealing with this subject. Of
course our extracts cover but briefly
what proved to be a long and Interesting discussion, but they will
suffice to make clear with whom originated the cheap parcels post proposition.
From Hansard of January 15th,
No. 21, wc take the following:
Hon. RodoJphe Lemieux (RouviHe)
"That in the opinion of this house
the establishment of a cheap parcel
post system would be to the advantage of thc consumers ot Canada."
He said: Mr. Speaker, this question of a cheap parcel post was
brought to the attention ol the
house last year, and since then I
believe there has arisen in the country an agitation which must ultimately lorce the hands ot the government and induce my lion, friend tlie
postmaster general to take action at
no distant time. I notice in the
press the other day that the hon.
gentleman had stated that he was
studying the system recently adopted
by the I'nited States government
and that within a reasonable time he
might probably adopt a similar system for Canada,
This question is a most important
one, as it affects the whole country,
indeed it affects every household In
Canada. When I had the honor of
being postmaster general the question was mooted and the officers ot
tlie department were studying a plan
which could be put in force in connection with the rural mail delivery
system. When I expressed the opinion that the parcel post should be
in operation in Canada as it was in
nearly all the European countries the
department was at once deluged
with petitions from all sections ol
tho country opposing the proposed
adoption of the system. I was
somewhat surprised at this because I
thought that, cheap parcel post
would be a great benefit to the consuming masses of the country. However, I found after a survey of the
whole situation that the opposition
came apparently from the country
store keepers in their fight against
the increasingly grasping power ot
the departmental stores. 1 suspected
tbat the store keepers had heen put
up by the express companies, and I
have no doubt, and my hon. friend
who is now nt tlie head of the
post office department of Canada has
no doubt, that the opposition comes
chiefly from the express companies.
The parcel post system is essentially
part of the work of tlie postmaster
general. The postmaster general,
not to speak ot thc American continent, but in Europe, and even- in
■ Japan, is not only at the head of
the post office system proper, hut is
also termed the minister ot communications. He looks not only after
the post office, thc transmission ot
letters, but after the cahle rates,
the telegraph rates, tlie telephone
rates, and in nearly all civilized
countries the transmission ot packages through the mails. The parcel
Europe for many years, and it is un-
post system has been in existence in
dcr the direct control of thc postmaster general in the various countries, ln England it has had an
enormous success, in France also, In
Switzerland also. In Germany it Is
on the cheapest scale, and is of the
greatest advantage, especially to the
farming community, It lias a direct
relation with the high cost ot living.

because we shall have to go where
tbe express companies do not go.

Lethbrldge, Jan. 21.—Through information communicated to the local
police by the chief ol police of Cranbrook, Van Hemert, a homesteader
near Altorado, was yesterday arrested by mounted police at Warner,
and brought to the city last night.
Chief Cory Dow, ot the Cranbrook
police, arrived in the city this morn
ing to take tbe prisoner back to that
city to stand trial.
While in the city Hemert posed as
a real estate agent, selling lands for
a Wolverton company, of Nelson, R.
('. Throughout the summer he was
a familiar sight on the streets and
was well known in the business section ot the city, having lived at tbe
Alexandra hotel while here.
It is alleged that while endeavoring
to finance himself through his difficulties be made the mistake of Issuing forged checks, one ot which led
to his undoing. It is also charged
that while selling real estate here he
heat a lot of his friends, although
the extent of his transactions of this
nature is not fully known to the police us yet. Two or three cases,
however, have been reported, one of
them a pitiable one ot a lady in this
city, who, it is understood, lost all
her money     through a deal consum-
It is likely that alter Hemert has
stood trial at Cranbrook he will be
brought back to Lothbridge, where
further charges ot obtaining money
under false pretenses will be preferred against him.
It was because of an attempt to
defraud Messrs. Campbell and Man.
ning that Cory Dow was put on
Hemert's tracks. Hemert had previously got Messrs. Campbell and
Manning to cash some cheques of
his, which proved O.K. Then he
came along    with a   draft for IMA,

. In a speech at Axhtoii-uiHter-Lyue,
Lancashire, a market town six miles
east of Manchester, on the tilth December last, Mr. Honar Law declared!
One after another, at different
times,, all the great countries of the
world and ail our colonics have abandoned our system. . . In no single
use where the system has been abandoned is there a political party in
country—not merely the government, but Ihe opposition—a serious
political party In any country which,
Iter an experience of that system,
proposes to return to the system
which prevails in England.

Proleetionisl element in tbe Reichstag, The representation of the
Free Trade Socialist party, now tbe
largest in thai chamber, was more
Ihan doubled, and, together with the
Radicals and other Anti-Protectionists, now constitute a powerful minority that is only only some forty
votes short of a majority. Vet Mr.
Honar Law, a month ago, chose to
ignore tin- avowed policy of that opposition, which he now characterizes
as not "serious." Baron von Mir-
bach, speaking m behalf of tbe Radical section of that opposition, said:
Free tra.de remains today tor thc
Radicals the final Koal of our economic development." At thc
meeting of        the Soeialis-
U-" party held in Saxony in
September, they passed n resoluth n
demanding the abolition of the pol-
of the president-elect on the American
tariff, whieh he charaeterl7.es as a
"dam" tbat restricts the activities
of the American people.
I want tlie men out of a job to
know that there are fewer jobs in
America because of tlie tariff, because the great combinations limit
the output, limit the production,
limit tlie number of those who produce, and, therefore, there are hundreds of thousands of poor fellows out
of employment on account of this
very thing.
The American workiagmen have not
l.een taken care of by tbe gentlemen
who have enjoyed the benefits of the
t high tariff, for Ihe men in unpro-
Itected industries are at this moment
| getting higher wages than most of
I the men in protected industries.

Hie profits they are making arc so
great thai they can build new factories out of their surplus every second

pieces of hint, and humbug that has
ever been known in the history of
political deception. (New York,
.lanmiry 4, IfU2.)
j In accepting his nomination as presidential candidate in August last,
Dr, Woodrow Wilson said:
| Our own clean conviction as Democrats is that in the last analysis
the only safe and legitimate object of
tariff duties is to raise revenue for
the support of the government.
This standpoint of the Democratic
presidentelect, which is identical
with that of British free traders, is
confirmed as follows in the Democratic platform for the present year:
We declare it.to be a fundamental
principle of the Democratic party
tbat the federal government, under
the constitution, has no right or
power to impose or collect tariff duties, except for tbe purpose of revenue, and we demand that the collection of such taxes shall he limited
to the necessities of government, honestly and economically administered.
No unprejudiced person can doubt)
what would he the attitude of these
American and German democratic
parties if engaged in the fiscal controversy now going on in this country. It is obvious to all who arc
acquainted with public affairs that
practical statesmen called upon to
ileal with complicated commercial
and economic systems cannot immediately reverse long-established fiscal
arrangements, however bad they may
know the results ot them to lie, and
however ardently they may hope to
see the shackles of a hampering tarift
cast off one day. But surely there
is no excuse lor representing such

compiled tbe results of a series of
investigations on the properties of
lire killed Douglas Fir, which indicate that the wood after a consider-
ahle number of years, is slightly

Tin- difference, however, is not

in timber, very largely disappears on

id'tial pieces in any lot of specimens.
Bridge stringers of lire-killed wood
are somewhat leas strong than green
stringers; while the floor joists (of
both kinds of wood) are about equal
in strength. In stiffness, the fire-
killed wood is fully equal to green
wood for all sizes tested.
In general, the tests indicate that
the sound wood from fire-killed Douglas Fir of the Pacific Northwest
may safely be used for general construction purposes and that its merits are nearly if not quite equal to
those of material from green, growing trees. It should be emphasized,
however, that these results apply
only to sound wood. Pieces showing indications of decay, whether cut
from green or from dead trees, should
he rigidly excluded where strength or
durability is important.
