Timely Address Delivered by Mr. A. C.
Flumerfelt before the Canadian
Club, of Victoria, B.C.
Wt. reproduce below from tho Commercial Review a report ol an address ticIIvoted Ity Mr. A. U. Kluiiur-
felt heforo ihr Canadian Club of Vio-
torla, B.C. Mr. Flumorfclt was
one of tin* recent forestry commission
iiml has enjoyed n wide business cx-
perlenco In ihis province, lie, therefore, speaks wiih authority on tho
natural resources of thc province nntl
whal ho has to say is worthy tne
consideration of all thoughtful men,
interested in the development »f thc
province alon*; .sound stabfe lines:
It- is not nn* purpose to elaborate
upon the state of timber within the
province, or to speculate as to thc
value of BUch timber, nor to draw
any distinctions between the coast or
mountain sections of tit.* country, nor
to call attention to the splendid timber to he found nn Vancouver Island
along the new lines of the E. .V N.
railway, whieh would, and must, delight the heart of any lumberman
who looks upon it* Hut I will venture this prediction, tbat the prices
today whieh stumpage is fetching,
viewed in the light of, .say, live years
hence, will look exceedingly small,
particularly when one considers the
fact that the world's supply is rapidly diminishing, that tin* per capita
consumption is equally rapidly *n-
creasing, that wot nis are being put
to uses not known a few years ago,
with widening markets and increased
facilities of transportation. With
this rapid consumption, who is there
can say what the future of stumpage,
so advantageously situated as ours is
may he within the next tew years?
This subject is so wide, so all comprehensive, so seductive, that I must
of necessity adhere ii> my written
manuscript, otherwise I might nc led
into ibe unpardonable sin of violating
your thirty-minute rule. I will,
therefore, plunge at once into the
center of my subject— mines, fisheries,
agriculture, lumbering—the profitable
aud permanent exploitation nf which
gives rise to many varied and serious
problems, witb whicli tbe political
leaders of this province must of necessity grapple. The one greal central fact (0 which youi ai tent ion cannot be too often drawn is that thc
development ol each and every one of
them depends upon something else.

I am glad to say Mint, in my opinion, with a proper uud intelligent un-
'ilerstaiiding of the conditions ami thc
courageous expenditure of sulllclent
' money, it will lie possible to make
our timber crop perpetual. Were It
tlie only asset possessed by the province, we would still be a people of
semi-independent      means. (Ap
Further, with the end of the period
of waste and destruction, with the
vanishing of the fool's paradise in
whieh wo have lived so lonu, effective
prrtcction will be ext;at! :-l to the
yuunj! growth tbat promises to he*
come valuable timber, Nature is
very good to us        in
this western country in
the matter of reforestation, and it
is comparatively easy for the province, in both ways, to safeguard the
future of its lumbering industry. As
a business community, moreover, I
sincerely trust we shall do this good
work in time to avoid the disastrous
experience of our American neighbors. Except for minor damage, our
forest property is still intact, it is
not ton late for us to take to heart
tho startling fact that 60,000,000
acses of good forest land in thc
United States have been burned with
such severity that they give no promise of a second crop.
So from the strictly commercial
point of view, as a source of lumber
for our sawmills and as a source of
puhlic revenue, our more valuable
limber lands will claim attention
from our legislature. The point 1
wish in force upon your notice is
that forest protection, ns a matter of
statesmanship in this province, fan-
not tic considered only upon these
narrow lines* British Columbia is
placed in an unusual position—forest
protection is all important to all Its
main industries.
Under   the   wry   iiest of circum
stances, gentlemen. Nature is none
too kind to man's commercial enterprise. The snow of winter wastes
itself in destructive floods; summer
comes, and with it drought; crops
languish for lack of water; rivers tie-
come unnavigable, manufacturies he-
come idle lor lack of power. Some
regions suffer less than others because
of Hus. but history teaches us in no
uncertain way that the country that
tampers with   its forest-covet draws
tli,- full force ot tin* evil upon itself.

This was the first important notion
which was tried before Mr. Justice
Clement unit a jury at Nelson, pertaining to a disastrous fire during the
season of 1910 which destroyed thc
limits of the King Lumber Mills,
Limited, ut Vahk. The estimate of
Hn* damages is In the neighborhood
ol $140,000.00. The question of liability alone     was determined     in the
notion, their being reference us to
the actual amount of daiiiai**es sustained hy the plaintiffs to be fixed hy,
thu court should tlie parlies not be
able lo agree.
Tbe action was commenced on the
1 ;it h of February and was continued
until lho 28rd, when a verdict was
returned for the plaintiffs. The plaintiffs called in all iu the neighborhood
of twenty witnesses while the defendants called some thirty-two witnesses. The jury found that the fire
commenced on the right-of-way oi
the .defendant company. They also
found that the defendants bad notice
through their section foreman that,
the fire was burning on the right-of-
way and also that thc defendants,
after receiving notice, did not take
sufficient precautions to prevent the
escape of thc fire.
There was no actual finding by the
jury as to whether the fire came
from a locomotive of tho company,
nor did tho jury find that thc defendants had proper appliances tor
the prevention of the escape ot
sparks. The verdict for the plaintiffs was based on tbe fact of the
fire having commenced on the right-
of-way; tbc company having notice of
the said fire and not taking steps to
extinguish same. The jury further
found negligence oa the part of the
railway company in not maintaining
a clean right-of-way.
The fire which the plaintiffs complained of commenced on the right-of-
way on the 4th day of July, 1910,
bul did nol destroy the timber limits
until the -Hs-t day of July, the plain-
t111 showing that tbc same fire hadi
not iKtn extinguished and bad blown
up on 'be Hist of July, causing the
damage. The defendant company
contended: Firstly, that the fire did
not commence on the right-of-way on
July Ith, hui commenced adjacent to
the right-of-way on or about the
8th of July. They also contended
that the fire which destroyed the
King limits    was known as the Cur-
zon fire, which swept from the west
and up Meadow Creek. Thc jury,
however, found that the original iin;
o July Ith was the cause ol tlie
groat lire.
The following counsel appeared    in
the action:

Nelson, II. C, Feb. 28.—The semiannual meeting of the Presbytery of,
Kootenay met at the assembly room'
of the V.M.C.A. yesterday.
Rev. C. 0. Main's resignation of
Knox church, Cranhrook, was presented. Mr. Laurie, of Cranhrook,1
appealed in feeling terms on behalf ol
Knox church. The presbytery with
great regret accepted Rev. Mr. Main's
resignation. Rev. Main believed the
invitation to Vernon a call from God
and reluctantly concurred in the resignation. A committee was appointed to draft an expression rf the
Presbytery in appreciation of Rev.
Rev. IL R. Grant was appointed
interim moderator ot the Cranhrook i
congregation and was asked to
preach there tm March ll>th and declare the pulpit vacant, lie was
also given powers to moderate In a
call as soon as tbe people had agreed,
upan a successor to Mr. Main. |
Among other business transacted
was the uniting of Phoenix ami
Greenwood into one congrcgal Ion
with the happy prospect in view of
soon having Rev. Mr. Munroe as the
pastor. i
The question of systematic giving
presented hy Capt. McMorrts brought
forth much discussion. The concensus of opinion was that this presbytery's share of the JltHI.OUO budget,
lately issued by the chirch, was tco
much. Presbyterians'm Kootenay to
meet this budget are asked to increase their donations to the schemes
of the church about one hundred per
ccnt.       This is  considered   a heavy
burden, especially in Fast Kootenay,
where depressing labor conditions at
present prevail. A committee was
appointed to ileal wilb the whole
question and to report at a later
in view of tho great need of ministers throughout this growing country
tlu- question of securing ministers
large in number and large iu calibre
brought ' forth cutisiderable interest
as to methods for securing and training recruits, At the present rate of
loss il was estimated tbat six
hundred men were lost to the church
during tlie last five years Itecause ul
the small remuneration received.
A call to Rossland in favor of Rev,
Mr. Sarkissian was sustained and
placed in his bauds tor consideration.
Mr. Sarkissian asked for lime to consider the matter. Provisional ar-
langements were math1 for Induction
lo take place on April 3 at K p.m.
There were present Rev. S. H. Sarkissian, of Creslou; Rev. G. A.
Hackney, of Trail, Rev, C. 0. Main,
of Cranbrook; Rev. F. S. Loggie, of
Xelson; Rev. T. T. Relkie, of Kaslo;

Unlike the academic subjects, thc

Some of the outstanding benefits ol

The pupil learns to observe.
The pupil learns to measure and to

as not to be popular," as a leading

Mr. Ernest Gamble 1ms a basso can

nnd Baucis."
Miss Verna Leona Page, the concert violinist of iht* company, plays

playing is one of Intelligent interpretations rather than a display ol

We were very restless indeed the
night preceding our start for Ihc
hunting grounds. It seemed almost
too good to bo trui* that thc time
for our long looked forward to chicken shoot had at   last almost arrived.
The following day wc gathered together our hunting clothes, purchased
four hundred rounds of ammunition,
took our two setter dogs, Queen and
(inner, and started tor the station.
Every minute seemed an hour as we
waited for the train to arrive. With
its coming we called the dojp and
