I   t>u April lt-th a special meeting   ol
[this board was called For the purpose
.ui biking some action in urging   ito
prorapi settlement of tlie Ferule eoal
'strike, ami as    a result of ihii; meot-
I ing a telegram was despatched to [he
Hon. It.    Lemieiu, minister of labor
,.l- Ottawa,     urging   prompt govpjn-
I ment action,    Wo all Know that   thr
D_>veromcnt appointed Mr.  iinokcnzie
King. tho deputy inintstei of labor as
iis representative  awl that an investigation was Immedlatol) commenced
and in n   very short   time -tho rosult
was the eomploto resumption ot work
.tt tlu* Pernio aud Michel mines   and
ihf  satisfactorj   adjustment   ol  all
existing lilflcronceH between the operators and tho men and there can   bo
in. question but     that the notion  ol
,o oranbrook Hoard of Trade In
conjunction with a similar action bj
tlio several Hoards of Trade of tlw
district was in <i great measure the
direct means ol drawing tho attention
ol the Dominion authorities to tho
complete demoralisation ol business
throughout tho Kootenays owing to
llie strike and the most urgent neces:
sttj tor prompt action.
A special meotilng of the t'l.uihio-'k
Hoard ol Truile was held in Mighton's
hall on Lutli of December to discuss
the extension of Hie load bounty and
we then lsail the pleasure of listening
in ,1 vcij interesting address from
.Mr. li. O. IUwlmijjiii, the lead bountj
commissions and president of tho
Associated Hoards, on tills subject
i'hu it-Miit of this meeting wa* thai
bopjes oi ,1 resoiution asktne tnai the
bounty period be extended tor a further period uf Jne years with Hie
further suggestion thnt the duty on
jiig lead bo Increased, were forwarded
In- premier, the minister of llu*
i, ih.' minis tei oi tlie Interior, the
islei i>f inland revenue, the uilnis-
of the interior aud others at Ottawa and to mil representative, as
well as a memo of reasons fur listen
sion of toad bounty. A resolution
• hi these Units was unanimously approved hv tho Associated Hoards "f
Trade held in Moyie on 22nd of January with a further recommendation,
however,   that owing to the    lower
lut- iiiifl smaller size of the ore
chutes of the mines of the district
iiiaj.iug the production of lead more
expensive, the government to asked
in amend the application of the sliding scale of bounties so that tin
bounty be paid on lead when tls and
lower instead ol (as at present) when
tlii and lower. The resolutions nf
ihe local boards together with that
of, ihe Associated Boards of Trade
will doubtless be of valuable assist-
ance In strengthening the arguments
of the delegates who are now at Or-
tawa urging the increase and extension ol the lead bounty and wo must
all appreciate what the success of
theii mission will mean tn ihis dis-
trict in particular.
The question of asking ibe provincial government- (o mako timher licenses perpetual also came up for di?
.Mission at. this meeting and 1/he lumbermen nf this district were asked to
attend a meeting of the board on
20th December aud to present their
views on the subject. The lumbermen were well represented at tbe
meeting on the "ifrl-h, but stilted they
weie not fully prepared to suggest
anv settled line nf action wiui regard to perpetuity of timher licenses,
but the following resolution was
adopted nl the meeting ol lbe As
sofiated Hoards at Moyie:
"Whereas the government fee foi
timber licenses is $115 per year east
uf Ihe I'aseades and $1-10' per year
west of the Cascades, and
Whereas the yield of timber is approximately 8,000,000 feet per license cast of the Cascades and .('_!,-
000,000 feet west of tho Cascades,
Therefore be it resolved by this
•onven.tion of the Associated Boards
of Trade of Kastem B. ti. that the
provincial government be asked to
mako a more equitable adjustment of
such timber license fees."
This resolution was adopted! at
that convention ami the following resolution submitted:
Whereas    timber licenses have been
anted covering timber variously estimated at from 100 to lib billion
feet, said license having a lite genor-
.liy of 21 years;
And whereas anv attempt to take
ill said timber within that time
would result in serious overproduction
uf lumher would encourage cutting uf
timber and consequent loss nf "the
wme;
A nd whereas la rge 4 ua ti tit ies 1 »f
imber are annually destroyed h\ tire
md il is an importance tu conserve
the timber wealth of the province;
Be it therefore resolved thai lhe
provincial government Ire asked:
1. To extend the life of -kill licenses
for ii further period ..t twenty-one
11 vears at the .same government rental,
—I 2., That the royalty i.e increased
every five years on a certain percentage of increase so Mint a fair price
may be realizwl bv the government
for the same.
.1. That some adequate system of
lire protection may be established to
prevent destruction of timber by Ore.
I. That the holders of cut over
icenses covering lands not tii for
agriculture be given the privilege of
holding said licenses for a further
period of twenty-one years ai a nominal rental of $5.00 per s-qimru mile
per year nn condition that thev pm-
teet the samp from fire and otherwise promote Ihe growth of a now
irop of limber.
fi. That holders of licenses that
have lapsed for non-payment of     the
•ense fee be given thirty days with
in which to redeem the same by paying a penalty of $10.00.
Thai the same license number be
retained on each renewal license
with the addition of the letters A.
B. and (' , etc , for each subsequent
vear.
After a lively discussion it was de-
ided that the time was not ripe i'or
the Associated Boards to recommend
io the government all the suggestions
'■oiitained in our resolution and the
lollowing amendment was adopted:
"That the board approves ihe ae-
tlon uf tbe government in tbo matter
of the reserving ot timber land."
■■That wc recommend the mainten-
nee for the present of such renervc."
'"'f'hat we recommend that no
-hange he made in the terms of existing lenses or licenses at present

READ THE HERAL
Rambling Reveries
BY A DREAMER
PRAISE. VOUIl NEIGHBOR
In our judRmwit ol others, we mortals are prone
To talk oi their faults without beetling our own;
And this little rule should be treasured hy all;
"li you can't praise your neighbor,
don't name bim at all."
Men's deeds -ire compounded ol   glory
aud shame.
And    surely 'tis   sweeter   to praise
thau to blame—
Perfection has never been known since
the Fall—
"It you  can't praise your  neighbor,
don't name him at all."
Remember, ye cynics, tbt* mote    .nul
the beam—
Pause in  your   fault-inidini', and lender the theme—
Who has the  least  charity, qutckesl
will fall-
"II you can't  praise your  neighbor,
don't name him at, all."
Ii  wu  wouhl   but ondenvot om own
fault to mend
We'd have all tbu work to which   we
could attend,
Theu  let   us bu open   to   Charity's
call-
"II you  can't   praise your neighbor,
don't name him at all

mothers display in regard t
matrimonial alliances ot their
dren, amounts in very many instances
to rank idiocy. ii tbey wish
"break off a love affair,1 they
ploy the very agent for its Intc
promotion—opposi tion.
Infatuation, so often mistaken
young people lot love, is a It
rooted plant, tbat will dli
time, if nnly Jet alone. Parental
terference, of a dogmatic Iiiuii, wil
very probably drive ils roots In i
Arm depth in tbe soil of affection,
Jt is unquestionably one of lb.
severest trials between lhc beginning
aud end ol life to rear a child willi
great care, and theu, at manhood or
womanhood, heboid tbe labor worst-
than lost, as it seems in tlie parents.
It seems bitterly ungrateful, A
terrible hliudness seems to have fallen
like a pall upon their child's inentul,
moral and spiritual vision.
Our attention has been drnwn to
this topic hy a number nt social
revelations, not pleasant to bear, and
which had their origin ia parental
opposition. Private marriages are
resorted to1, scandalous arrangements
entered upon; nnd often, wnat is
still more sad ami deplorable, the
lives of bravo and high-hearted lovers
shadowed for life.
After the age of tweuty-onc, girls
who have been properly educated, are
quite as apt to know what they desire In a man for a litlslmnd- as their
parents, ami unreasonable opposition
is as foolish as it is unkind. Wm.-u
the spirit of opposition leaps high in
parental hearts, it would be well to
ask these questions: Would marriage
be tbe worst thing that could happen?
Is my opposition fostering thu nest
results? Is it my ambition, or my
child's happiness 1 am seeking to
promote? Has not my child the
same right oi a choice in a lite companion that 1 had?
Another thing occurs at this point,
that we cauuot well retrain from protesting against. It is the fully—and
nothing less than fully—that characterizes the conduct Of far too main
parents' in regard to their children,
uud especially their daughters, who,
in soiue weak moment, have behaved
indiscreetly, and possibly shamefully.
A child is' a child, and no act ol a
patent can make it otherwise. Disinheritance, anger, unkindness and
abuse only aggravate such matters,
ami what might have been kept a
private family sorrow, becomes a
public scandal,' so crushing the helpless victim that not even a whole
life time of remorse an.l repentance
ran succeed in washing out the blot
ber reputation. Life is so
shortr-huin-in happiness, at, best, so
poor and small—is there anything
to be gamed by making a bad matter
worse, or a miserable fellow creature
still more wrotched? Are truth and
virtue so frail and weak as to be
utterly destroyed by the breath ot a
pitiful error?    Must Christ be   again
crucified to t-eaeh us the he
charity ami forgiveness''

HOW TO JUDGE  BOOKS
Would you know whether tho tendency of a bimk is good or evil, examine in what state ol mind you are
in when you lay it down, lias il
induced you to suspect th.it what ynu
have been accustomed to think unlawfully may, after all, be innocent,
nnd that, may he harmless which you
have hitherto been taught to think
dangerous? Has it tended In make
you dissatisfied and impatient under
the control of others; and disposed
you to relax in that self government,
Without which both Hie laws of (Iod
and man tell us there can be no virtue, and consequent Iv no happiness?
Ha;; it attempted to abate ymir admiration and reverence for what, is
great and good, ami io diminish iu
you the love of your country and
your fellow beings*': Has it addressed Itself to your vanity, your selfishness, or any other of your evil propensities? Has it tleflled the Imagination with what is loathsome, or
choked tbe heart with what is monstrous? Has it disturbed the sense
of right and wrong, which the Creator has implanted iu the human soul?
K sr»—If you am conscious of all or
any of these effects—or if, having escaped from all, you have felt that
such were tho effects it was intended
to produce, throw -the honk into the
lire, whatever ua e it mav henr on
the title page! Throw it into the
fire, young man, though it be the gift
of a frlemt; young lady, away with
lhe whole set., though it should be
the prominent furniture of a rosewood
bookcase. There never was Bitch a
rage for book-reading ns at the pre-
tienb time. It is a commendable
habit, only one cannot, he too careful
in the selection of books.
Let a young man at twenty years
of ago put twenty dollars at interest,
Instead of spending it for tobacco.
Then, at the beginning oi the next

Victoria. Feb. »>—Petei Lund is .t
big man in every sense of tin- word
He is tail iu stature aud almost ...
big across the shoulders as any two
ordiuary men. Besides that be i-.
iu business in a big way. Hi' is
president ■ of lour large companies,
wcoresident of two, managing di
rector uud sccrttaiy-treasurer of om-,
men out of uud partner in another. He ih
strictly a business man and talks
business all the time.
Mr. Lund is down from the intcrioi
of the province as a member of a
deputation'of half a dozen iiiiiueuti.il
lumbermen who aie seeking to have
the lumber business put on a solid
basis. Tbey are slaying at the Empress hotel and two days ago tnej
interviewed the government, their
spokesman ou that occasion being Ur.
-..lark, of tne Forestry association.
The provincial government is proposing to advance the royalties Irom
lifty cents to seventy-five cents a
thousand and this Mr. Lund claims
would seriously cripple the Industry
especially as it is even now not in
a very flourishing condition. If this
should be done," said Mr. Lund, "ii
Would be necessary to cither lowoi
the wages or put up tin-, price of luui
ber. Neither of these are desirable
things to do," so ho proposes instead a sliding scale.
"We do not ask the govcrniiieul f.u
anything which we do not cousidei
right aud   lair,"    said the big man,
but we want to be dealt wuu fan
ly. We. expect tu pay our just share
if the revenue to the government,
aud wilh this in view my proposition
is that for the next livu years the
government increase the royally to
till cents a thousand, for the lo.'iovv-
ing five years to "lie. und after that
to one dollar. If this were none we
could figure ahead and should know
just what we ivant to depend ou.
Another thing that wc want is lu
havo the license reduced on lauds
which have been cleared of timber.
When the timber has been taken oil
most of the land Is useless tn anv
ono. We should like the option of
being allowed to hold tbat land, pay
ing therefor a sum of about live dot
lars a square mile, so that we may
sec that fires are not started anil
that the young growth is protected.'
Mr. Lund also- thinks that licenses
should ite renewable as long us the
annual fee is paid. The industry, In-
thuiks, is the oue tbat brings more
revenue to the provincial exchequer
than auy other iu the province ami
it should bo put upon a stable basis.
By tbu time thu annual license has
been paid for 'Jl years, something like
uuu has been paitl in, allowing
compound interest on the amounts.
Ihis surely, he thinks, should be
ample payment foi tbe timher. But
they do not ask that the payment
cease at tbe end of that period hut
simply, that they be allowed to en.
tinue to pay.

A   SHORT time ago, in this Ad., wc told you about the great bargains we were offering in
WOMEN'S SHOES, and we predicted them moving fast.    We have been mote than
surprised, as our sales have exceeded our most sanguine estimate.    We have sold more Women's
Shoes during the past two weeks than ever beiore.    There are still several hundred pairs of up-
to-date styles lelt to choose from.
We believe we can move this entire lot during the next two weeks. The reason we believe
this is: We are offering the very best makes at LESS THAN COST PRICE. Judge for
yourself.   Here are the prices i
REGULAR $5.00 SHOES for    - $3.75

enjoyed, the elussieul m'usie "of the

the pipes. The rendering »<f selec

of such airs as "1 Dreamt Thai 1
