11. C.
Dear Sir:      I beg to acknowledge
receipt   of your   letter of March 23,
enclosing copy of a resolution passed
hy the     Cranhrook    Hoard of Trade,
urging that special attention he giv-
I on   to the   zinciferous   ores of Kast
1 Kootenav.  in   connection with     the
I investigation   of   zinc   smelting pro-
, cesses.
i In reply 1 may say that the government is very desirous of assisting
the mining interests iu reaching
I some process which will satisfactor-
■ ily solve this vexed problem of
[smelling zinc ores.
I The legislation introduced the other day, of which you are aware, enables the governor-iu-council to authorize the expenditure ol a sum not
exceeding $511,1(00.(10 for investigating the various processes. It is
proposed, under the authority thus
given, to enquire into all tho known
methods of electrical smelting of
zinc. Not only will investigations
he conducted in this country, bul we
intend, if possible, to extend our enquiry to Europe, The process
which is hesl adapted to conditions
of Canadian ores will he adopted.
If we come to the conclusion Ihal
the electrical process mav he applied
to the refaclorv low-grade ores of
Hritish Columbia, experiments will
he carried on iu thai province; hut
the department of mines desires to
have a free band to conduct them
wherever it is deemed advisable, he-
cause, as I am sure you will all
agree, the main point is lo lind the
hesl metbM hy which /inc ores can
he trented.
Vie all earnestly  hope that  our investigations will  meet  with success.

Good leather is essential in a boot of this kind, and in this you can
rely on the Ames-Holden shoe every time. Yet we never hold that
leather alone makes the shoe—there are slipshod, " no-good " shoes into
which good leather has been put, and which may even fit perfectly, but
they lack the touch of the real workman. Thread and nails wont hold
a boot together and make it give perfect service—it must be bound together wilh integrity. The "unseen things" about a boot must be

The early history ol the St. Eugene mine, the largest lead-silver
mine in Canada, is ol especial interest in the Kast Koutenav district ol
Hritish Columbia, in which tlie mine
is situated. For many years a devoted Roman Catholic priest, Rev.
Father CoCCola, labored among the
Indians of the Fort Steele and
neijtuborlng sections of the district,
having liis headquarters at the St.
Eugene mission, near Fort Steele,
long a nourishing town supported
mainly liy rich placer-gold mining
Among the Indians connected with
the mission was one who had the
idea that the money riH|iiisite lor

mission could be obtained from
"ebjeamon stone" i( only hj couW

that, on June 80, 1803, two mineral
claims were located on a mountain
rising 8000 reel or more Irom the
eastern shore ol Moyie lake. Ono
of these, located for himself In Mr.
Cronln. was named the Peter alter

In    1809 the   properly was oiten-
BlVClV  prospCClod and a  vein ot lead-
silver ore s to 10 del iu width opened. This looked so promising that
John A. Finch, o| Spokane, Wash.,
purchased Father Coccola's interest
for $13,000, which sum not onlv
paid for a new and beautiful ehunii
at SI. Eugene mission, hut also provided the Indian Potet wilh a ranch
Jur himself.
During the three following years
Messrs. Cronln anil Finch expended
about $80,000 in developing the St.
Eugono mine. In 1800 thev sold a
two-thlrda Interest to the Goodcr-
ham-1 Hack stock Syndicate, of Toronto, Ontario. The development nnd
eiiul|imetil of the mine were thereafter still more vigorously proceeded
with and nhout $180,000 was Burnt
in this work under the new auspices.
Meanwhile the Moyie anil Lake Shore
groups of mineral claims, which Iny
between the St. Eugene and Movie
lake, were imrehaeil nml the St.
Emmie Consolidated Minim; company was organized to acojuire   ami
opernte the amalgamated properties.
In l.ld.'i the Canadian Cnnsiiliilaled
Mines, Ltd., was incorporated, and
it acquired the St. Ktnri-m- nnd other
mines   and the    unci I ing   works at
Trail, B. C. The St. Eugene group
then comprised hi mineral claims aud
tractions, having a total area of IS I
acres. Later the name ol the company was changed to that of the
Consolidated Mining and Smelling
Company, of Canada, Ltd., the present owner of tho property. The
St. Eugene group now comprises S13
adjoining mineral claims (including
several fractional claims), having an.
aggregate area of about 1050 acres,
all situated in close proximity to
Movie lake. Chief among these
claims, iu regard to development
work done, arc the St. Eugene,
Movie, Queen of the Hills and Lake
The outcrop on the St. Eugene
claim is about 2mm feet higher than
the level of the lake. The ore occurs in a iiuartr'iie formation in
which a sheared or lissurcd /one is
mineralised bv sulphides, chiefly gal-
ma. The orebodlea are generally
somewhat lenticular in shape, occurring very irregularly—so far as yet
ascertained—and without characteristic Indications of their presence. For
Instance, between two levels more
than Iml leet apart in which no ore
bad been encountered, an exceptionally import.mt ore body, continuous       for     about llHIU     feel
ami ranging up to BO feet
ut width, was discovered in 190-1.
Thfl existence Of these conditions
eventually led to the extensive use1
ol the diamond dull iu prospecttttg
underground, with muoh advantage
both m regard to expedition in finding new orebodlea and lessened cost ;
oi development ol Hn- mine. l
Philip Argall, of Denver, Colo.
who had Charge of tin- field work of
the "Commission Appointed to Investigate the zinc Resources of liritisli Columbia," in his report to
Walter Ronton Ingalls, chiel commissioner, gave ihe following geological notes o| the ore deposits in
Uu- si   Eugene mine:
' Unit- arc Iwo almost parallel
veins, ihe main and the south vein,
connected at irregular intervals by,
■i Miir. ut interlacing lissures extending from the footwall of the
lOUth vein to tbe hanging wall id
Ihe main     vein.      These    cross-fis-
siius form the principal on- deposits
of l de mine * * The main veins
would average about i; (eel in thick-
ne-aa; the pay ore about 5 feet. The
Cross Assures, however, and the
pon,is of tiii-jr Junction with the
main fissures arc ihr depositories of
greal ore masses, reaching in some
cases ii thickness of 80 and, 1 believe, in one instance, ti*( feet,
"The property was practically
dosed down at the time o) mv visit
(Nov. 8. 1005), on account Ot lire
having destroyed tbe shaft house,
hoisting plant ami month ol lhe
1800 feet level. I was able, however, to pay a hasty visit to part of
the 171.0 ami 1800 ft. levels. My
observation during this brief trip
through the workings is to tho effect lhat the mniu nml the south
veins occupy irregularly fissured nnd
slightly crushed /.ones which have
been impregnated with galena and a
little blonde occasionally associated
with garnets, and in wliich there is
little sign of faulting nml not much
slickenside, or gouge. The idea
conveyed on examining the vein
structure is that of nn irregularly
lissureil nml broken zone, lhe fractures in which have been filled principally with galena; toward lhe ends
of the galena shoots blende predominates hut where tho galena is at its
best there is but little blende.
"An intorosttng feature is the Interlacing veins, thr drifts on which
arc designated ns avenues. The first
avenue on the 1800 ft. level appears
to have been fairly productive, while
the second avenue is perhaps best
described as a Imnnn/n deposit.     In
one stope between the 17(10 and 1800
It. levels on this cross-vein, I noticed
I ft. ot almost solid galena ou the
footwall nml a 'A It. seam on the
hanging-wall of similar material,
with streaks and veins of galena occupying tho crushed /one of country
rock between these ore scams, the
whole of this cross-vein or avenue being at this place -'> It. iu width; a
verv remarkable showing.
"Tho country rock may be an altered slate, but it exhibits at this time
no slaty structure. ll is highly
stltcious, in places almost ;i uiiait-
zilc. This rock cat H he said to
bo softened or altered in the vein.
In places quarts occurs in the vein
formation, more particularly where
there is Impoverishment. I could see
but little quarts in the second avenue
stope previously noted. The northern vein is probably the main one
ami carries in places a little gouge
on the footwall ami irregular seams
of vein quart/, but tbe rock fractures and vein structiin- suggested a
shattering rather than a shearing or
faulting movement indicative of deep
"The longitudinal section ou the
veins shows that the sloping conforms fairly well to the contour ol
the hill, and that a line drawn
parallel with the latter at n depth of
HO ft. would possibly include all the
rich stopes iu the veins. The ore
deposit wilt thus appear to be somewhat superficial. No doubt, in
places when- the Assuring is more
profound and the shattered '/one
large and well mineralised, pay ore
will continue below the 200 ft. contour, ami iu other places wlrerc lhe
Assuring is less intense it may not
reach this depth.
"The country rock is Ihinly bedded, ami the beds have a southerly
dip of about 111 degrees. Pyrites is
common in the rock joints away
from the vein and many of the tied-
ding planes near the surface appear
to have boon water courses ami are
now partially lilted with iron oxide."
It will lie observed thai Mr. Ar-
gall's notes relate to the mine ns it
was toward the end of 1!10.». Since
then much development work has
been done ami more than half a million tons ol ore exlrncted, while laic
reports are to the effect that large
ore shoots have been found on levels
oponcd since Mr. Argnll's visit.
Down to the IKllO tt. level, known
as tbe Imiu tunnel, the mine has
been opened by a series of adits
driven into the mountain. t>( these
lhe Film and IK0O, opened on the
Lake Shore claim, have been driven
ou the main veins through the
Movie ami Queen of the Hills claims
into tin- St. Eugene the respective
distances of 5200 and 1100 ft. He-
low the 1H00 level, a .1-compartnicnt
shaft (each Compartment 3x5 ft. In
the clear) has been sunk vertically
to a depth of 800 ft., and from this
live levels—the 1900, 2000, 2100,
2200 a-rt 2100—have been opened.
Ret ween the 1800 and 11)00 the distance is 125 ft., while the others are
150 ft. apart.
In the upper levels ot the mine
there are two main parallel veins,
and in the lower, four or five. Those
are connected at oblique angles by
tho occurrences of ore. locally termed "avenues," ol which 11 have so
tar been discovered, and they have
been numbered 1 to 5, with intermediate numbers }, I], I'., I,1, 2.1 and
:i.',. Tn date, Nos. 2 and -1 have
been tbe most important producers
ot on*. Without exception, these
ore avenues terminate nt the main
parallel veins, outside the limits ot
wliich no important shoots ot ore
have yet been encountered. The
strike of the main veins is north .15
deg. west, and thnt of the avenues,
north 20 deg. east. The dip varies
from 15 dor. Io vertical.
Ore from the four higher levels   la
delivered to llie concentrating mill
bv an aerial tramway, about a mile
in length, while tliat from the other
levels and shaft workings is conveyed over an electric tramwav to the
mill bunkers. The greater part of
the output ot ore is now hoisted
from the shaft, the 2000 level being
the most productive in the mine.
Hoisting is done hy a Mm h.p. hoist
steam for which is supplied by three
l»u h.p. return tubular boilers.
The main drifts are about 8x0 tt.;
the progress made daily iu drifting
usually averages 7 ft. i'lstoa drills
—21 and *i\ in.—and numerous hammer" drills are used. The general
style of timbering is by square sets.
The main haulage ways in the mine
aud on the surface are equipped for
haulage by electric locomotives, ol
which there are three in use. From
the mill to the portal ot the 1800
level the distance is about 1800 tt
aud the electric tramway runs into
the mountain on this level half
mile. Main haulage ways and mine
stations are lighted hy electricity

The St. Euecuc concentrating mill
is substantial in construction aad
its equipment is modern in character. It is situated near the lake
aud close to the ('rows Nest branch
ot the Canadian Pacific Railway
company, thus providing convenient
and advantageous transportation facilities.
The ore, conveyed from the mine
hy the aerial and electric tramways
already mentioned, upon delivery at
the mill is weighed ami dumped into
receiving bins, ot which there are
four—one each for coarse and fine
ore from the lower levels and tlie
other two provided with a grizzly
for separation of the coarse and fine
of the mixed ore from the upper
levels. Automatic feeders discharge
the fine ore on a belt which conveys it to a 80 mm* trommel. The
flues from this trommel are taken by
a conveying licit to an elevator leading to the concentrator storage bin.
A 30 in. picking belt takes the oversize from tlie trommel, also the ore
from the coarse ore bins alter the
latter bas passed through a 24x15 in.
Farrell crusher.
On an average there are tour men
working at t.iis hell, two picking
out waste and two picking out the
higher tirade crude ore, more or fewer being employed as occasion requires. Tlie discharge from this
belt is into two Dxlfi in. Rlake
crushers, and thenee Into a set of
12x*.ti in. rolls. The ore is then
hoisted bv a pair ot automatic loading and dumping skips to the concentrator bin, the discharge from
the skips first passim; through a
sampler which cuts out 1-20 ot the
entire feed. The portion Hum cut
out passes through another set ol
rolls, adjusted to \ in , and then
through a Vczin automatic sampler,
which takes out 1-20, the ore rejected being passed to the mill bin. This
sampling gives a sample of 1} tons
from the day's run of 500 tons of
From the mill bin, which has a
capacity- of 475 tons, the ore is automatically fed to a '10 mm. trommel,

H appears, Irom » case that hn*

nitre is urgent need fur some amendments to tlio law regarding payment
ol damages i*. worklngmen injured
whilst In course nt theli regular employment. There is a law ('ii the

Injured certain compensation, imi the

direction In which organized labor
can better turn its efforts just now
than In the securing ol reforms i»
this connection that will secure to
the Injured employee prompt payment ol tho damages lie is legally
entitled to. The ease we have in
mind is that ol a O.P.lt. employee, a
lormer section foreman, who for
months past has been Incapacitated
from work. He is a married man
with several children anil whilst lie
has ircen Incapacitated irom work loi
Boieial months he has, as yci, received not one cent of compensation
from the C.P.H. The ease is a
particularly distressing one, as the
injured man has an excellent reputation, »as a trusted employee and in
every way entitled to even uruerous
eunsl(leration at the hands of the
railroad   company.      Vol    the facts
are as stated.     Kor t ths past lie

aud so far lias received not one cent
Irom the company, organized labor
should take Immediate steps to n
dress outrages of this Lind.
An illuminating little pamphlet
entitled "Canadian and Herman
Trade."' comes tn the Herald from
lhe pen oi Mr.  (i,  A.  II.    Mull.r,    of
Montreal, Krom this pamphlet we
learn some striking facts regarding
possibilities of trade between tlie
two countries, with the advantage
verv much iu Canada's favor, now
thai the German surtax has been bIh
rogatcd. Many have little conception of tin- remarkable expansion of
(Iermany in rcccnl years. The
population is increasing at the rale
ul a million a je.tr. Since is.iii,
when the Laurier government was relumed   lo  power,   lhe  population   has
ndvonced fi  52,753,000 to 03.017,-
000 in 1808, an increase id 2h per
The agricultural products ol (ler-
manv are limited and every year she
lind.. il necessary to import' more am)
more troin abroad wherewith to support her teeming industrial population Such a situation cannot fail
to appeal to us in Canada, especially
to our greal and urowmn agricultural population, and our large lisli-
ilig and other interests. With the
increase in population Germany's Imports are Increasing enormously. Tho
following figures an* convincing Kor
1007 the amount was $1,430,000,000
ami for 1007, $2,180,000,000, an increase of more than .in per cent in
eight years.
lu 1807-08, our total exports to
Germany amounted to $2,200,657;
today, ' 1008-0, thoy amount to
$1,575,103; the lattcf Including silver ore to the value of $315,380 aud
tobacco, td,,28. Ncllhrr ol these
si'eeiliul products was exported in
I-.I7-S. These figures show that,
leaving out silver ore ami tobacco,
out exports to (iermany have nc-
tualiv gone behind hv the sum of
$301,260 n the past twelve vears.
Even this appears favorable, however bad it is, when llie statistics
show Ihal in the fiscal vear 1900-7,
our total exports had fallen on to
the deplorable amounl ol $080,101,
Ue bave the goods that Germany
most needs. The greatest increase
in German Imports during the past
decade has lieen iu products and
manufactures of which wo nre in
ercnslngly greal producers, such    u
wheal,   barley,   feed,     linseed,   cattle
agricultural Implements, etc, etc.
li is to our advantage to obtain as
flee an entry into Gcrmauv lor these
products as possible, and the arrangements now wisely concluded are
a very good beginning, as our farmers and others should soon discover.
\\. E. Scott, deputy minister ol
agriculture, has been tlsitlng Nelson
an I other pole*-* in Weal Kootenay,
mid reusing meetings of fruit grow-
ei .lust why these agricultural
officials have so lar Ignorcq Cranbrook dlatrlel is nol quite clear.
The local Farmers' Institute has extended invitations to these gentlemen to address meetings In this city
and doubtless, sooner or later, they
will  show  up. Mr.  Kn.lt  appears
to he eonsclcntiously tryiiin to perform, his duties and il may be merely
OVersigM < n his part that has caused
Cranbrook district to he thus seemingly neglected.
In the course of his address in
Nelson, tho deputy minister of agriculture, said there were several
habits the fruit Kfowcrs of the Koo-
tennv mast pet over, nnd the first
of these was the individual markctiiiK
or fruit. Collective marketing was
the only method of Rettine, the hest
prices. The rapidly growing province of Hritish Columbia was a
sr.tetuliil market in itself, and the
prairie market also naturally ho-
lonatd to this conntrv Good packing was necessarr, us well ns ihe
choice of the best fruit to ro to the
market Kor lhe past two vears lie
had handled Hie Kootenav fruit In
the Hritish market, nml lis Peeping
qualities were marvelous.
Mr. Scott nlsn rcleirvd to Ihr
packing schools, which were tried at
various points in the Okanagan recentlv. In n fortnight, hovs nml
girls could become fair packers,
becoming more prollolont vear by
year     It was proposed to hold these
schools all over the province, and in
I the course of time the great demand
for packers could he filled at home.
Explaining the plan for demonstration orchards, the deputy minister said the government was devoting $10,000 this year to this purpose. It was proposed eventually
to have nhout 15, at various points
over the province. About one hundred points were asking to lie chosen
as locations and of course the major-
itv were doomed to disappointment.
Notwithstanding anything that had
appeared in tho papers, none of these
points had yet been selected. The
demonstration orchards would not be
in operation till the fall, as much of
the nursery stock that would he required was uot now availahle in
Hritish Columbia, Oregon or Washington. It was not the intention
to plant any eastern stock.
Mr. Scott went Into the plan of
operating the orchards in some detail, Staring that each owner ot a
demonstration orchard would do, or
have done, the work that he would
do if he were still operating it, hut
the work would be done under the
direction of an official of the department. If more than the ordinary
amount of work were required, the
government would pav for the excess. The owner would also lie expected to keep full records and data.
Demonstrations would he given periodically, of various phases and
methods ot fruit culture.
.1. C. Metcalfe, commissioner of
markets, also addressed this meeting
and in course of his remarks stroiiR-
Iv urged upon the Nelson fruit growers the importance of securing the
Crow market. With the opening of
the Weyburn-Lotlibrldge line a great
consuming territory would lie made
accessible lo Kootenav fruit, growers. Mr. Metcalfe was also a
strong advocate of co-operation aud
expressed surprise that Kootenay
growers were so little iu touch with
this method of handling their product. It wns necessary to have a
campaign ol education for the benefit of the fruit growers, Thev must
raise more and better fruit, raise
the varieties wanted on the prairie
markcl, concentrate the energies of a
listriet on a feW varieties, co-operate in fixing prices nud co-operate iu
the handling and selling of the product.

"According to Information received
Irom the statistical bureau ol the
state department it is disclosed that
the American investments in Canada,
nearly all ol which arc in the western part of the coontry and do not
include the large number ol manufacturing brunches established and now
living located in Ontario, have reached the largo sum ol $2211,800,000. Our
investments in Cobalt silver mines
nnd other mines in the eastern districts are not included in these figures nor nre our holdings ol Canadian government municipal and corporation bonds. The enormous

"Among the numerous capitalists
who are going Into Canada are the
I'nited States Steel Corporation, the
Standard oil company and the Guggenheim interests, with their Morgan
backing. While much ot tho money
lhat. these people are taking across
the line is put Into mines and timber, large sums are also Invested in
commercial enterprises. Implement
manufacturers Irom Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and
Iowa have enormous branch establishments at a number nt strategic
tmints throughout the Canadian
grain belt. They do an Immense
business in harvesting machines, .-binder twines and threshing outfits.
"There is in these vital lacts
incontrovertible argument in lavor ot
reciprocity with Canada. And there
is another argument equally potent
in the significant tact that Canadian
hanks have at this moment on deposit in the banks ot New York
more than 1200,000,000. There are
manv more sucb (acts that the
Commercial intends to present as
showing the utter inconsistency, not
to say lolly, ol imposing onerous
tariff restrictions upon Canada."

A special astronomical camera has
been set up at Honolulu, which is
expected to catch    some interesting
Statutes of Hallo's comet when on
lay 18th it completes its trip
around the sun and begins a similar
journey all over again.
Dr. John II. Ilreshart, a well
known Pittsburg astronomer, who is
providing the camera says that on
Mav 18th the head ot the comet
would cross the solar disc and the
phenomena would be plainly visible
in the Pacific ocean.
"It will take the comet but fifty-
eight minutes," he said, "to cross
the sun's lace. At the time it will
lie possible to determine how much
sold matter is In the comet's nucleus
lor all solid matter ten mites in diameter would he indicated by shadow
spots against the sun's background.
The comet on that day will bo hut
15,000,000 miles awav Irom • the

Very many people ask the question:
How much capital would he required to start a poultry ranch?"
Answer: Two hundred dollars
would give a good start.
It is u mi sialic n idea tu think that
it needs much money. It docs nut!
Neither are hens an expense. The
liens pay thclt own way and furnish
the capital tu enlarge and make other Improvements, One hundred hens
and two, two hundred egg Incubators
("good ones"') will Bwarin the plant
with poultry in u year.
If you enter the business with the
idea that you must have a costly
poultry house and every other thing
that is advertised in order to make
a success, such for instance, as
swinging feed boxes, ornamental
roosts, silver di inking fountains,
fancy baskets for hens nests, guld
lings for hens necks every time they
lay an egg, a Hying machine tu scatter the feed with or an automobile
like Dr. Oreen's or Mr. Mr, Hyde

then, my friends, you will indeed
need a large, a very large capital
Un not he hiimhugged with such n
foolish idea. First he salislicd tu
thwack the limbs ofi tho trees before
you tackle the entire lug.
Must poultry raisers want to, begin lop ol llie log first, and are
pretty much like the hoy with the
axe. The story runs thus: A lather
was clearing up some timber laud
ami hud u sou hig enuugh to help
sumewhat, and as a lull sized axe
was a little too heavy for him to cut
limbs ofi with (also possibly to encourage his hoy a little iu the right
direction) he bought him a small
red handled axe, but the hoy persisted in mounting the hig log, to show
of, leaving tlto father tu browse oil
the limbs himself. The hoy's ambition was great and ol course he
could hardly gel through the bark.
.My advice is: go slow al first and
widen out us you gain success. Poultry raising is a trade which, like
everything else, takes time to learn
how to handle it to the very best
advantage. .Many people who are
so used lo seeing hens around imagine thai there is nothing lo learn,
no study needed und thut is where
(or years a grave mistake lias been
made. It is indeed a study nml
needs careful thought.
They are building nt New York n
lurge poultry institute, where both
men and women can gain an education along these lines. Men nud
women who wuuld like to handle a
profitable business fur themselves, or
ir (or others ut a large salary, will

desire nt little cost nnd nccomplisfi

taken others years ol careful study
and experience to discover and develop. This poultry college is to he
ut Elmira, New York, and is to
cost one bundled and eighty thousand dollars to build.
1 knew a poultry raiser not two
hundred miles distant that made
good money out ut other people's
wasteful methods. He kept two
cows, some hogs und four hundred
hens. He did a scavenger business
hy collecting the swill and waste of
a small town for his hogs nnd hens.
He kept two horses, did some gur-
dening, mostly of cabbage aud roots

months, when they nre penned up

animal died in the neighborhood or
got killed    on the railroad, he    was

hens got meat scraps, cut enhhage
and vegetables, and 1 can ussure you
he needed no dopes (or egg production. His poultry house for 100
hens did not cost him over -Slid. The
sides were built of bailed straw,

Collect road dust and put it nwav

A clean, dry floor, will keep vermin away, and insect powder mixed

There is virtue iu common things.

Salt is another good thing for

mistaken. They are hard working
instead of men of leisure. Most of
them have families, with whom he
needs to get acquainted when he finally reaches home, just for a few

the traveling man, as he, poor fellow, enjoys very little of home life,
and is looking forward to the few

Let us all be happy and content
with our lot. It seems to me that
nothing can give greater pleasure
than to properly care for and feed
animals and fowls.
Let us try to be satisfied with our
lot whether it is a whole lot or a
half lot.
The advance
I can remember some thirty years
ago, when an lown, U.S.A., farmer,
sold iu spring aud summer eggs as
low iu price us five cents a dozen
and matured hens at $'2.50 a dozen.
Now for the cause and effect of It.
Wild game aud fowls were abundant,
the streams were full of fish, and the
usefulness of liens were then doubtful. Today things are far dim-rent.
Wild game arc practically ol the
past. Land is increasing in price.
Prairie laml used as pasture for
cattle is getting very scarce. Trading ports of thirty years ago are
now western cities, that are doiih-
ling their population every year,
Over-production has now reversed Itself. Today there is an over-production of consumers.
Wc do not need to draw on our
imagination to know that poultry
will supplant in a measure and lead
the meat products.
1 believe in full blooded poultry.
Every farm should have some particular variety.
I am not exempt from making mistakes any more than other people. I
do not get astride ol every question
or cater to the opinions or approval
of other people.
There are matters In regnrd to
feed which are of importance to al
honest poultry raisers. I do not
take any stock in the much advertised poultry food, or in paying
double price just for it to lie prepared ami labelled. The grain and
feed raised on the farm arc the best
Tor hens. liens, the same as humans, occasionally get out of sorts
•lust a few feeds of old simple plain
wheat bran will put them in shape
again. It will relieve the digestive
organs and start them again anew,
I do not favor a steady diet of one

would desire a steady diet of baking
powder biscuits for humans.
liens like variety just as we do.
Council have added a "printer's

yout dollar that is tho fee the
people charge lor the secret.) I
will tell vou the laying hen. Here
it is in full. A small head and
neck, a leminine, a bright dancing
eve, that holds her head and tail
up, so that when she walks her head
aud tail nearly meet, a ben also that
picks her bet up and plumps them
down without a dragging, lazy way,
as if she would just as soon start
to the north pole as not. The hen
that is mi the roost and scratching
the neighbors garden belore they are
up. Of course the neighbor may not
appreciate it, but you will get the
egg and should be satisfied. The
very best suit ol all is a ben that
lays an egg for 200 days ul the year.
Invariably such hens fit my description. The hen with the bead up and
drooping tail, tbe lien with elevated
tail nud drooping head aud move
around as if they were sent for and
could not go, ure no good. I never
saw a masculine, club-headed hen

them ofi and dumpi-d ihem on a
dump pile, and for all I know they
arc laying there yet.
Unless you have fine poultry aud

Pullets well taken care of will lay

Weight, hence a double proiit—the
gain in weight and eggs, Nothing
equals a flock of earlv hatched pullets. The time to sell the old hens
is just about when they (the pullets)
hnve finished moulting.
A poultry raiser said to me tbe
other dav loo manv poultry plants
would spoil the market. This puts
me in mind uf a cireumslanee thut
happened to me about Ibree years
ago. I drove down the bill from
the north side uf Cherry Creek, un
the main travel road to a long narrow bridge, when near tho bottom

could slop them they rnu ou to the

room," savs he. Wc each went to
the right aud there was about two
Inches between tbe hubs. After W0
were cleared, I uf course, staved to
thank him "Never mind," says he,
"two gentlemen   can pass on   this
bridge, hut two bogs cannot." There
is truth in this saying. And there
are hogs in mints In the poultry

and complete disruption of the federal party at Ottawa, says a despatch
from the federal capital. There are
parties within the party, and factional wars. The immediate cause
which revealed the internal condition
of things was tbe naval debate, during the course of which Dr. Edwards
ol Krontcnac, voiced the hatred ol
the ultra-Orange clement against the
French-Canadians. Embittered by
aspersions regarding their loyalty to
the empire the members from Quebec
rot together and organized a party
by themselves. Today they are
linked with Henri Hourassa and look
upon him as their leader instead of
Air. Hordcn.
There are two other great buLmH-
visitms in the Conservative party at
Ottawa, those who believe that Mr.
Mr. Hordcn is the one man who can
lead them out of Egypt and those
who are convinced that just so long
Mr. Hordcn is leader thev will remain in bondage with Laurier, as tbe
Thai Mr. Hordcn is a man of integrity ami singleness of purpose bas
never been questioned. In very
manv respects lie is tbe biggest man
in the" house of commons, excelling
lhe premier and everybody else in
many attributes which combine to
make a man greater than liis fellows, bur he lacks just that one
thine which is necessary, lie is not
a rood leader, lie is not enough of
a ticliter. He misses opportunities
I trouncing bis opponents. He has
been unable to control the warring
It-merits in his party, and today
more than half of the Conservative
members have made up their minds
to replace him. He would have been
replaced lorn ago were it not thai
lie i-. to highly respected. Indeed beloved In   his    followers.        He   is a
redll to the public life of Canada,
md stands in strong contrast with
men high In good places, who have
had everything as their object except the gotnl of their fellow citi-
The antl-Bordenltes have several
men in iJew. One of them is Premier McBride of British Columbia, hut
1 is practically certain that he will
not accept anv invitation to come
Ottawa. The other is T. Vi
Crothots, ol West Elgin, who has
been a thorn iu the side of Sir Wilfrid since be came into the bouse, a
man of patent honesty, shrewd, keen
and a born tighter. There Is no
compromise with Crothers. When a
thing is wrong, it's wrong, and be
will tight it to the death. His words
bite, his tongue hurts. He hates
corruption,   and    he   will expose it
j witb all the vindicUveness   of     the
[clean man.
Another mentioned is C. A. Mug-
rath, of Alberta,       As an all-round
* mini he bas no superior in the house,
and he is respected for his virtues as
.well as- for his attainments.      Still
I another is A. S. (ioodevc, of Hritish
Columbia, who was a memtier id
Premier MeHritle's cabinet. There
is also talk of asking ex-Premier
limit.tin uf the Northwest Territories to come to Ottawa, and this
probability finds the most advocates,
of course there are several other
good men.
There will he a caucus of the Conservative party immediatelv alter
ihe members return, and the whole
situation threshed out. Some Ray
that out ot respect tor Mr. Horden
thev will vote for him if it comes to
a vote, but tbey hope be will    not
I put Ihem in that position.
I   The    Toronto     News, a    straight
j Tory organ, and one of Borden's
strongest     partisans, discusses    the
' situation ns follows:
Despatches bave gone out to different parts of the country dealing with
the internal affairs of the Conservative party, There is eomethitu lie-
bind all these statements, but perhaps the exact tacts are not general-
ly understood, K is true that Mr.
Monk and liis followers have demanded the removal of Mr. Borden from
tbe leadership of the Conservative
party. Ever since Mr. Borden was
appointed to the leadership Mr.
Monk has been restless and dissatts-
flitl. There nre those who say be
lias never been loyal In (Quebec bis
leadership was hardly taken seriously.     Even most Conservatives      re-
jgard him as an academic dreamer,
capable of making a well-sounding
speech ou occasion, hut witb no gifts
of leadership, no personal magnetism
aud nu serious standing as a politician. He has been tbe plaything of
.Sir Wilfrid Laurier and tbe joke of
Quebec Liberals who know how to
organize a party and how to light a
The present situation arises particularly out ol the determination of
the government to organize a navy.
Mr. Monk thought that hy seizing
the coat-tails of Mr. Bourassa be
might build up stum-thing like a
Monk party iu i/uehec. Besides, he
would enjiiy the rare pleasure ol
appealing to the prejudices rather
than to the patriotism of bis compatriots-. He, therefore, demanded
that the Conservative party should
absolutely oppose expenditures tor
naval defence. So certain was he
that he could drive Air. Borden and
the Conservatives of tbe English-
speaking provinces lhat he went to
Lacbine and made a speech which he
expected he could force on the opposition at Ottawa. But, contrary
to bis expectation, the Conservative
parte |ei| ||<- Mr. Borden, adopted an
advanced naval policy, while the
whole? Liberal press of Quebec, instead of patting Air. Monk on the
hack anil encouraging Mr. Bourassa,
turned in loyally to support tbe
naval program oi the government.
This left Mr. Monk in a more hopeless situation than ever in his own
province and cut oil more completely
than over (rum the Cunservatives of
the other provinces. I'nder these
circumstances he and his friends undertook to demand the resignation of
Mr. Horden and to force a re-organization of the Conservative party.
Whatever mav happen, it i.s generally admitted that there is no one in
sight as capable as Mr. Borden to
till the ollice of leader, and certainly it is impossible for Conservatives
anywhere to accept the dictation of
Mr. Monk. Failing to bave his
terms considered, Mr. Monk no doubt
will withdraw from the party, temporarily drift more closely to the
side of Mr. Bourassa or fall in behind sir Wilfrid Laurier. He has
been a drag upon the Conservative
party ever since IS9B, hopelessly incompetent both as an organizer and
lighter, and loyal chiellv to his own
prejudices and ambitions.
There is a great deal id misapprehension as to the size of the vessels which it is proposed shall form
the nucleus of a Canadian navy. Conservatives have made it appear that
the entire scheme is upon such a
trivial plan that no future is presented for the youth of Canada to
cuter upon the naval profession.
Doubt has been presented in two
forms. First that the proposed
navy was of the "tin pot" variety,
so insignificant that no career was
presented to young Canadians to join
it, because it offered no attractions.
Second—Because the navy contemplated did not meet with the approbation of the British admiralty.
These two suggestions are without
nny foundation in fact. It may lie
said lirst, that the vessels are ol
great size, tonnage ami strength, and
secondly, that they are the very type
selected by the British admiralty.
To make the subject more intelligible the proposed vessels are as follows:
Niobe, armored cruiser, 11,0(10
tons displacement; 436 feet long, KM
feet beam. 25 feet draught; li.,f,im
indicated horsepower; speed 20
knots; cost original!*- $2,741,415;
coal capacity, 1,000 tons, complement, 000 men; 10 0 in. guns, 14
12-pounders, 5 ..-pounders, 2 machine
guns, 2 torpedo tubes.
This vessel is to he purchased from
the British government, and will lie
first stationed on the Atlantic side,
and he used as a training ship. It
Is part ol the scheme to train Canadians for a naval career, pending the
construction of tbe permanent vessels of tbe fleet. Tbis will meet the
aspirations of a great many young
men who bave already signalized
their intention of entering the navy.
Rainbow, armored cruiser. This is
a vessel of 8,600 tons purchased from
tbe British government to do service on the Pacific as a training
ship, in tbe same wav as the
1 NlObe will on the Atlantic.
j Four Bristols, armored cruisers,
each 4,800 tons displacement; 430
J feet long, I" fnt beam, 15 M feet
draught. 22.000 indicated horse power; speed, 8-5 knots; complement each
20 officers and 371 men.

The navy will thus eonslsl nf

cannot tie mentioned now with any

fleet wilt he a formidable lighting

the empire iu ease of emergency. As
coast ami commerce protectors tbey i
ore the very same class of vessels ;
used for u similar purpose bv (treat
Britain nnd are recommended to
Canada as the most useful typo for
the purposes required.
Approximated this navy will cost
$11,500,1100 to' build and about
$...01.0,000 a year to maintain.
The entire scheme was based upon
tbe speiiiic recommendations of tbe
British admiralty. The object
sought was to relieve the British
fleet of the task of defending commercial routes in time 0! war. Tho
cruisers, it was pointed out, would
by reason of their great Bpecd, be
enabled tn know tbe whereabouts
of an enemy and give timely warning
to the heavier battleships. ' At tlie
same time their own armatnenl will
be of such strength that they can
take care of themselves in an emergency.
These are tho vessels described by
Conservatives as a "tin pot" navy.
For purposes of comparison it may
be stated that the Niobe is 3,000
tons larger than the two largest of
the United States cruisers, and 8,000
tons larger than most of the others.
The Bristols will bo exceeded in
size by only three United States
cruisers—(two being those referred
to above, which arc themselves
3,000 tons smaller than tlie Niobe.)
The Bristols will be larger by several thousand tons, than thirty
cruisers of tbo United States navy,
and be only exceeded in size by three
United States cruisers.
If the Canadian navy is "tin pi'.,"
what of the United Stales navy.'
Another point of comparison is
that the Canadian cruisers are larger than any cruiser in the navies of
tbe Argentine Republic, Brazil,
Chili, China, Denmark, Netherlands,
Norway, Portugal, Sweden, Turkey.
Canada's cruisers are larger than
32 out of *i" French cruisers.
Canada's cruisers are larger than
15 out of 11 German crolsera.
Canada's cruiseis are larger than
22 cruisers of the Italian fleet.
Canada's cruisers are larger than
2-7 out of in Japanese cruisers.
Canada's cruisers are larger than
9 out of hi Spanish cruisers.
It is evident U1.1l the Canadian
navy hears comparison well with tin-
cruisers of any other marine power
in tbe world. Cruisers are a very
important part ol a navy, and,
as Canada followed tho suggestions
from the Hritish admiralty with ie
ganl   to    the      type of  vessels  which
would tie of the greatest assistance
to the empire in ease ol hostilities,
it stands to reason that Canada has
the nucleus ol a navy ot which an)
country would be proud.
As to the destroyers, those tor the
Canadian navy aie larger than any
similar type in the navies of the
Argentine Republic, Austria-Hungary,
Chili, China, Denmark, Oreeco, Italy,
Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, Norway, Sweden and Turkey.
France, (iermany anil the United
States have some destroyers target
than those of Canada, hut the Canadian ones are vastly superior to
many of those belonging to either ol
the countries mentioned in tonnage,
indicated horsepower and  speed.
The few particulars given here,
which may be found by reference to
official sources, indicate thai Canada
will have a navy of the most up-to-
date character, it is true there will
be no Dreadnought yet, but all tha
other vessels are the best modern
science has evolved.
There is another nolnl about which
much mismiderstandimt exists. Criticism has been directed anainst the
Canadian government because the
Canadian llect does nol pass nnt'v-
malically under British control in
cose of war. It appears that Australia has a similar provision in the
law to thnt of Canada. To sel the
matter at rest, Admiral Klngimlll
cabled the Australian government a
"Please Inform mo by telegraph, as
soon as possible, whether, in the
event of war, vessels of Australia's
navy pass automatically, without
anv action, under control of admiralty."
TO the above eahle the following
reply was received hy Admiral
"Willi reference to vour telegram,
transfer control to tho admiralty la
not to bo automatic, but subject to
approval of Commonwealth government on declaration of war."
The objections urged In this regard
to tho control of Canadian parliament have no force.

The British government having reviewed the various projects for a
ship canal through Scotland, whereby the Forth and the Clyde can be
connected, have decided thut so far
as naval requirements are concerned,
the most favorable route is that
through Lochs Lomond and Long,

Level Route." Such a canal the
government states would unquestionably possess some strategical value,
and as they would financially assist
such a scheme, the promoters of the
enterprise are urged to push tbe
matter forward iu commercial interests      The  government,    however,
Stipulates that the canal shall have

A sea-level canal   was found lo Ih1
mpossible; for although tho mean
level of ihe sea is practically the
ie on the Clyde and the Forth,
the level at high" water is not. so
thai a sea-level canal would produce
harp tidal currents which would iu-
olvf serious risks in navigation
According   Lo   tlie    designs   which
have already been prepared, the   entrance to the canal   (nun the Nortb
Sea would he a little distance north I
>f Clrangcmouth, striking inland in n
orthwesterly       direction,     skirting |
Stirling   on the   south   and running]
into   the    PorOi    valley, wliich docs I
mt attain a higher elevation than 30 j
o ail feet above sea level, then pass-i
ng  through  the    haunch of  Ben  Lomond    into the   valley of     l-.tidvick.
i'his cut would be the heaviest     on
the whole   route, the ridge attaining
a maximum height of 200 feet above
sea level.     But it is short.     Entering    Loch   Lomond,   tbe   waters ot
which arc ilecp enough for  the latest vessel afloat, the Inch is followed
for Vi miles to Tarbet, where another cut  is made through the neck    of
laud, 11 miles wide, separating Loch:
r.oml  from  Loch  Long.     The latter would    he entered   at Arrochar,
.ml this   loch,    which     has a very
greal depth ol water, is followed until the Firth of Clyde is reached opposite   the    Ciocll lighthouse.       The
locks would he placed at either   end
if the canal, that on the Civile     to
lilt   the    vessel    to tbe    level of the
water in Loch Lomond, which is 22
feet above the mean level of tho sea,
and the other at  Arrochar to regain
the sea level iu Loch Long.
Tbe total length of such a canal
would he 51 nautical miles, of which
III miles Would he in canal and the
other 2\ miles iu the open waters of
LochLojiiond and Loch Long. The
deepest cuts would he one of 101 feel
near Stirling, another of 285 feet at
the head of the Forth Valley, an t
oue of |I3 feet between Tarbet and
Arrochar, These cuts, though deep,
verv short. The vessels will
have lo he lifted at the Forth end of
the canal, 13 feet at high water and
■il feet al low water; at Arrochar
the lift would he 17 aud 27 feci respectively. In addition a regulating
lock would be formed at the head of
lhe Kiidriik valley to he used whc.i
Loch Lomond is in hit;!) flood.
Kurt her advantages of this route
are the avoidance of river deviations,
only comparatively small brooks being encountered, which could be easily syphoned across the canal. Only
one deviation would be necessary,
that of the End rick; which, after all
is only a stream. Again, tlie minimum of interference with the railroads will be offered. No swing
bridges will Im- necessary and it will
he possible for vessels to proceed j
without shortening their masts. The
sharpest curve will have a radius of
two miles. The construction of tbe
canal will entail the excavation of
170,000,000 cubic yards of material,
and its cost, to meet the admiralty
requirements, would approximate
Sf30.000.000. Work would occupy,
seven years.
Apart from its strategical value,
the canal would have distinct altrac-
t'ons for commercial traffic. It will
offer a shorter route between
America and Europe, and will avoid!
ihe dangerous passage via the Pent"
land Firth. The extent of this
"North About" traffic as it* is called, Including the coastal traffic, is!
considerable, and the saving of from
100 io fiHU miles in the sea journey I
of the transatlantic vessels, according to the situation of the European
port, would tie an important consideration. The aggregate of this traffic which would use the canal is 10,-
"31,805 tons pet annum, and ut an
average rate of -17.V cents per ton
Ihis would yield an annual revenue of
about $4,021,800, which, after deducting $300,000 as the annual cosl
of maintenance, etc., would yield
about 3 per cent on the capital for
an admiralty canal. The scheme is
being actively pushed forward, and
BO soon as some idea of what the
government would bo prepared to do
financially is obtained, no difficulty
will he experienced In securing the
necessary financial support to con-1
struct the waterway.

The Loudon omnibus, nest to the
expiring hansom tbe must characteristic means of public locomotion in
the British capital, has fallen upun
rather evil days. Three or four
years ago tbe motor "bourn" came,
and everybody supposed that the
horsed omnibus would soon lie as extinct as the Sedan chair. The companies raised new capital and went
tu enormous expense in flooding the
streets with squadrons ot huge petrol-driven cars. Popular they undoubtedly are; but tbey are nut very
probtable. Moreover,'they have to
compete with formidable rivals In
the shape nf the taximeters, tubes
and tramways. Kor the person
wlm docs not mind reckoning in sixpences rather than pennies, the
swift gliding taxicab is the thing.
Fur tbe multitude the tubes are as
cheap as the buses and quicker, and
thev have been linked up so as to
give London a quite unequalled system of underground communication.
Moreover, the expense ot maintaining
the motor ■■omnibuses is verv heavy;
and, low as the fares are, the tramways, mostly uwneil hy the London
county council, carry passengers
longer distances at even lower rates.
Sn the omnibus companies show a
declining revenue and lower profits,
and their shareholders are unhappy.
And there is a tendency to reduce
the si/e and weight of the motor
ears, or even to withdraw them altogether. At any rate, the horsed
bus has not disappeared, nor, for
that matter, has the horsed cab, ami
there is even a possibility that they
may survive their mechanically driven competitors.
