morning. On| Yesterday the confessions of Fred, Tory legislation, but being now un-
iinl John uelanger were .put in and der administration of a Liberal government at Ottawa, the dear and
pure and loyal old Tory soul revolts
and refuses to submit. Those twin
and lofty souls—Bo wscr-.Mc Bride—
are no mere provincialists. British
Columbia is an empire in itself. It
must legislate independent of Dominion or imperial laws (the B. N. A.
Act, to wit). Ami so we have our
premier in his peroration exclaiming
grandiloquently: "I think we iu this
province may justly claim that Hie
work for which wc propose to claim
the principal credit is by no means a
provincial work, but rather it is a
federal work, it is a national work,
aye an imperial work." And he repeats: "The work this government
bas undertaken, in bringing the Canadian Northern to the coast, will
be iu all its incidence an imperial
Then why, if this road is really aud
rightly an imperial or national work,
should a lone provinve he forced for
party reasons to bear the whole burden of its construction.' It aspires
to be transcontinental, but it can
never be either national or imperial
so long as it runs (as it does)
through a portion of northern Minnesota. Still it should be assisted
to reach the Pacific—by the Dominion, of course, and if Mackenzie and
Mann can sav that thev applied to
Ottawa and were refused the aid to
whleb tbey were entitled, then they
might he excused for their application to the province. But if the
question of route bad Influenced the
refusal (supposing there was a refusal) than I must say that Ottawa
snowed infinitely more wisdom and a
better appreciation of the needs ol
the province than did the Victoria
clique.   *      '
One of the most disquieting features
of tbe premier's lull is to be found iu
section I, where it provides that
blanch lines (called "additional lines
of railway") may be subsidized to
the extent of 145.000 per mile, principal aud interest, but neither mileage nor time limit is fixed. Surely
tins is a blanketing of the province
and an overwhelming of its credit
with a vengeance, the forcing of us

Ou Sundav evening last lhe Kdisoii
theatre was crowded to the doors
with men, and scores were turned
away, when Dr. E. W. Connolly gave
his address, illustrated with lantern
slides of actual photographs. The
doctor dealt in plain and direct language with the awful scourge, which
is installed iu our midst, whoso ravages are greater by actual statistics than cholera, smallpox and yel
low fever combined, sapping the
foundations of society, poisoning tlie
sources of life, rendering existence
miserable and deteriorating the
whole family.

Speaking of the causes leading to

spoke of the foolish n.oe'i modesty
of the parents, the want of knowledge on the part of young men and

edv. the education of our young
people and the removal from oar

the root of ihe entire evil.
The meeting was closed by singing
God Save the King, after wliich three
rousing cheers were given the doctor,
in appreciation uf bis solemn, but
kindly warning. Similar meetings mav
Ih- arranged for ai a later date.

The Herald had a dial recently
with Mr. James Finlay regarding the
campaign it recently inaugurated for
the exploitation of the zinc resources
of Eosi Kootenay. As every reader
he Herald knows, Mr. Finlay is
intimately associated with the Sullivan mines, and has made it his business to ascertain accurately the re-
oiirces of thai property, as well as
f adjoining properties, in the mater of zinciferous ores. Whilst endorsing all that has so far appeared
these columns ou the subject, Mr.
ila- drew particular attention to
ihe Stem winder property, located on
Mark creek, between the North Star
and Sullivan mini's, two miles above
Klmherlej This property is owned
by Messrs McKenzie and Mann and
gives promise of being exceptionally
rich iu ziuc ore. Recent assays of
re samples from this property have
;lvcn returns of lead IN per cent and
inc 21 per cent, whilst in other
amples, the zinc returns have run as
high as 15 per cent to "ui per cent.
And what is specially of Interest is
that there are now upwards of 700,-
1)00 Ions of this rich zinciferous ore
blocked out.
H is surely unnecessary to adduce
further evidence of the existence ol
rich zinciferous ore bodies in this
section to arouse the board of trade
nnd oilier interested parties to the
urgency of at mice taking steps to
tccure the co-operation of ibe Bom-
Iuion department of mines iu ihe
work of exploiting these resources.
(50.000 is being provided bv the Dominion government lor this very purpose and it is up to those specially

A great many la liners and residents uf small villages and towns
raise poultry, yet the extent of the*
poultry industry is seldom realized.
Still less certain iu the minds of
must individuals wliu raise puultry is
the amount of profit tu be derived.
Thus the lack uf inluruiatioh ol
economy in tlie business is altogether
due tu carelessness and inattention.
It is us easy tu run a poultry business as any other business, ihe essential point upon which success In
poultry raising depends is detailed
information on its various aspects,
construction of suitable houses, the
arrangements of proper runs, cure
and feeding of young and old fowls,
recognition of . the prulitablu laying
age of fowls, and attention to sanitation.
It should never be forgotten that
as soon as poultry raising is undertaken ou a laree scale and fowls are
kept confined ou relatively small
aroas in large thicks, the liability
ol disease, from contact and accumulation of filth, is greatly increased,
If poultry houses are clean and liuit-
wasbed and coal oil painted on roosts
Lliere will be fewer lice and more
cixi's. The best wav therefore of insuring continuous, sanitaty conditions for poultrv is to an an e the
whole plant with reference to the
ease with which it can he kept In
this condition. The next step is to
determine tlie breeds which will he
raised, and to secure suitable i"f,,s or
fowls for starting. 1 would sUtrgCSt
for farmers, who raise for both purposes, ei'irs and meat, the Barred
Plymouth Rock, which attain a good
size and are profitable winter layers.
11 is a recognized lact that the
Brown nud White Leghorns are
cbu'llv raised for the Teat number of
c""'s thev produce.
It is therefore an east- matter to
secure eggs from anv ol these breeds
in large quantity within short distances and thus avoid tlie dancer of
Injury to ettgs from Ion" shipments.
If more than one of the breeds be
kept do not cross them as no good
results can come from such a policy.
It is also of great importance to
remember that pullets during their
lirst laying season lav more eggs
Ihaii during any subsequent laying
season, and therefore from a business
standpoint it pays to fatten them
nd sell them for meat at tbe end of
the first season. The onlv exception
to the rule should be made iu case of
bens of exceptional dualities which
mav be kcot for two or three vears,
aud their OtrtTS used for hatching.
This plan has an especial advantage
in the fact that the fertilit'- of the
ep^s of two or thrcc-vear-old hens is
somewhat higher than that of the
eggs from pullets. Likewise raising
fowls for meat it should he remembered that the greatest profits arc
always derived from young fowls.
Vouni' stock will gain double the
amount of flesh from the same feed
as older fowls.
Perbans the greatest source
expense in keeping poultrv is the
feed. The farmer can and should
produce nracticallv all the feed needed for his noultrv, Fowls need in
their dnil*- rations a mixture ol
green Iced and animal feed. The
green Iced mav consist of clover,
crass or some kinds of vegetables.
The list of grain feeds mav include
wheat. Iiarlcv. buckwheat, crac'el
corn and a few oats about three
limes a week, also Teen cut bono
pverv other dav during the winter.
Crit should alwavs he present, while
skim milk and house scraps f'-r m*
.reduction are cood feeds. All "rain
should be fed in litter. Small potatoes boiled, mixed with shorts and
fed once a dav. will lie lound beneficial.—Canadian Farm.

During recent years so much attention has   been   paid     to   the wheat
growing opportunities of   the   three
prairie   provinces, that comparatively little attention has
been        paid          to       the agricultural   opportunities     ol   British
Columbia.     The lact that most    ol
the land on the prairies does not require to be cleared, and that where
there Is timber, it is mostly ol      a
light nature, and also that      about
ninety per cent of the land in      the
Pacific province is more or less heav
ly Umbered,    is, to n large degree,
responsible   for this condition.     But
lose     study   of the situation reveals the fact that Hritish Columbia
possesses other advantages, which iu
some degree ;it  least, offset the advantages enjoy, d by Alberta, Saskatchewan     and'  Manitoba.       A great
many vears will (tit by before she is
able' to   produce   enough agricultural
products to supply her home market
—a market thai Is   constantly growing aud expanding—In some lines   by
leaps and bounds.
Putting it in round figures, seven
million dollars a year is annually
sent out of the province for agricultural products. A million dollars a
year is sent oul lor poultry and eggs
alone. Considerably more than a
million is sent out lor butter. Condensed milk * to the extent t.f two
hundred thousand dollars is annually
Imported. Bacon, hams anil cured
meats from the outside arc annually
consumed to tho extent ol over three
hundred thousand dollars. Lard
comes along at close to the two
hundred thousand dollar figure. And
it continues, all along the line,
until the startling total of seven
million dollars is reached.
An Interesting thing about this
large annual importation of agricultural products, is that only five million dollars worth is imported from
the other provinces in Canada. The
balance is imported from other countries. So lhat while there is room
for tremendous development belore
British Columbia will he able to produce what she consumes, there is
still two million dollars of a market
for the other provinces to supply
before the production in the provlncQ
is increased at all.
A large quantity ol mutton is Imported from Australia, cured meats
and lard from the States, bay and
fruit from Washington, etc. Considering the great increase in the orchard acreage ol the province during
recent years, it may seem a little
strange that fruit is still imported
iu large quantities, but such is the
ease, (tf course, a great deal ol the
fancy fruit is imported, but a much
larger tonnage is imported than is
exported. The records of the Canadian Pacific railway also show that
fifty per cent of'the fruit shipped
over its road from British Columbia
points has been consigned to other
points in British Columbia. And
in one year the fruit importations
amounted to eight hundred thousand
What then is the matter? Surely
province making such extensive im-
portatlons offers a wide field to the
energetic agriculturist. It does, It
would take too long to discuss the
situation in detail, but I propose to
go over some ol the difficulties briefly.
Perhaps the most important is the
one I mentioned at first the difficulty in clearing wild laud. Of course,
there arc some sections where the
land is open prairie, and the clearing
is comparatively light, hut the great
majority of the arable lands require
to be cleared. There Is said to lie
a larger proportion of open prairie
land in the northern section, which
will be traversed by the Orand
Trunk Paeiiie, than in nny other district
Another greal drawback is the lack
d transportation.   At present     the
growers have lound that a flock ol
poultry are a very valuable adjunct
of the fruit farm, and the production
•r eggs and all classes ol poultry
has increased very materially. But
at tlie same time the population, especially of the coast cities, has increased so last that the increased
production is hardly noticed.
A very profitable branch of agriculture that has been much neglected in
tlie province is that of sheep raising.
There are large areas of rough land
at high altitudes which are ot little
value for any tiling but u sheep pasture. And yet with an area ol three
hundred thousand square miles iu the
province there are less than thirty
thousand sheep. It is true that the
sheep herds suffer to some extent
from coyotes and panthers, but as
settlement increases these appear to
be getting less and less, so that not
so much may be feared In' that direction. Considering that ttic importations of Australian mutton are
heavy, it would seem high time that
more attention should he directed to
the possibilities of this industry. |
There are many complaints that
the province is suffering from the
lack of a progressive policy for the
settling up ol tlie wild lands. It
has been suggested in some quarters
that it would be a good investment
upon the part ol the government to
make small loans to actual settlers,
as is done in New Zealand, and taking a lirst mortgage security <m
their land. Settlers could then procure money at almost one-half the
rates now charged by private corporations. Land mortgages run
irom eight to ten iht cent ami sometimes higher. The government could
secure money for a little better than
four iu the great money markets ot
the world, could loan it out at five,
and still make enough profit to cover
clerical expense.—(Special correspondence of Canadian Farm.)

way.       In the   Windermere   country
the settlors have been looking eagcr-
Iv for a railway lor the past ten   or
fifteen years.    'A company of charter
mongers have had a charter for about
that  length of time, and every   lew
years the government 1ms been in the
iiahit of civing them an extension of
time.    The Simllkameen country has
suffered Boverely In this regard, some
old   settlers oii    Anarchist Mountain
having hauled their   produce twenty
land    thirty    miles   to n   market lor
I years.     A number of new roads    at
; present scheduled   to construct lines
hi the   province,   will help the situa-
t tion, but Hritish Columbia will still
| want more and more railroads.
\   The   development    of horticulture,
and the cutting up of the big   cattle
ranches into small tracts, has lately
been a feature     which has increased
production.     Not alone has it meant
the planting    of orchards, but   fruit
the Standard of Empire.)
The news that a contract has been
let for the building of the lirst sixty
iles of the Kootenay Central rail-
wav means a great deal to those
who know their Hritish Columbia. It
means that the Columbia vallev. a
district which has at least as great
potentialities for fruit growing as the
Okanagan or the Kootenays, is at
last to be opened up to settlement.
Stretching for 1(10 miles from Golden,
on the main line of the Canadian Pacific railwav to Wardner, on the
Crows Nest branch, this beautiful
vallev has to a great extent escaped
the notice of the ordinary tourist
who ventures little distance from the
stablishcd track, and who leaves the
hvwavs to the prospector or the
more adventurous sportsman.
To the prospector and the sportsman this valley is indeed well
known, and most of the old-timers
who have squatted on the ranches
that dot its slopes have wandered
hither in search of lead or silver or
gold, if not in chase of grizzlies or
mountain sheep.
The soil is a clay loam, and the
rainfall light—an average of twelve
inches to the year—so thus irrigation
is essential for successful fruit growing. Various irrigation projects are
alreadv in band, especially one large
scheme in the neighborhood of Lake
Windermere. These various undertakings will now probably be consolidated under one comprehensive plan
such as that which has made the
C. I*. H. irrigation block in the Cal-
gar- country so pronounced a sue
The land is not heavily limbered,
so that clearing is light— j.i an acre
liberal allowance. The cost ol
a stumping outfit suitable to the district would not he more than £30,
Moreover, the land lies iu wide terraces, so that the cost of breaking is
no more than it would he on tlie
prairies. Alfalfa   and   all (odder
crops grow to perfection, and the
combination of orchard with mixed
farming—the most economical system
of agriculture iu British Columbia-
is therefore eminently suitable.
One great advantage that this district has is its proximity to good
markets. The mining towns of the
Crows Nest Pass are close at hand,
and there are no better paying markets in the world than these. Further, the prairie districts round Macleod, now rapidly filling up with
failed States settlers, arc at only
a few hours' distance. It will be possible to market strawberries In Cal-
garv ur Medicine Hat on the afternoon of the day In which they are
picked at Windermere. That means
money, and a lot of It.
Owing to the absence of railroad
facilities up till now, the price of
land is still very low. £1 to £6 an
acre buys land very similar to that
which costs £11) an acre in the
The charter of the Kootenav Central railway was recently acquired by
the Canadian Pacific railway, which
has lost no time in turning its acquisition to practical advantage. The
route has been carefully located, and
gradients have been secured at less
than one-half of one per cent. Low
gradients mean cheap freight rates
fur produce. The line will be extended as settlement pushes along
the valley, and will probably be completed in three years as far as Golden.
From the tourist point of view,
this railway will open up one of tlie
most beautiful districts in the Canadian ltoekies. Tlie train will pass
a succession of magnificent panoramas of river and lake and snow-capped peaks. The summers are bright
with cloudless skies, and the winters
comparatively wild. At present
Windermere, in the heart of tlie valley, is most easily reached hy
steamer from Golden, but there is
also a trail tor those who ride or

to Fort George. This boat will
have fifty staterooms and all the latest improvements iu the way of electric light, etc. By means of stage
and steamboat it will be possible to
make Fort George from Ashcrofi in
less than four days. The equipment
and organization of the stage travel

If you ask a child where home is he
would say where mother is. Home
ol our childhood, where mother
reigns queen, soothes our heartaches,
ministers to our needs, protects
from the blasts of Hie. But we
must strive to secure the home
"where they know not lhe sorrows

river of death, where no sweet ties
are severed, no tears there, no fare

God the Son, our Savior, our mother and lather, brothers and sisters,
all there, in that licaiitil.il "home of
the soul."
There is nothing lhat is so cheering to a mother's heart, and such a
rich recompense tor all she has sacrificed aud endured, as the kind, affectionate remembrance ot her children. There is nothing that can
adorn man or woman more than the
tenderness and gentle care they
manifest towards their aged parents

Don't worry about something that
you think may happen tomorrow, because you may die tonight and tomorrow will find you beyond the reach
of worry. Don't worry over a thing
that happened yesterday, because yesterday is a hundred years away. It
you don't believe it just try to reach
alter it and bring it back. Don't
worry about anything that is happen-
ing today, because today will last
only 15 or 20 minutes. Don't
worry about things you can't help,
because then there's no need to
worry. Don't worry at all. II you
want to be penitent now and then it
won't hurt you a bit, it will do you
good. Hut worry, worry, worry,
Int. fret, fret—why, there's neither
sorrow, penitence, strength, penance,
reformation, hope nor resolution in

Don't be afraid ot a little tun at
home, good people. Don't shut up
your house lest the sun should lade
your carpets, and your hearts lest *
laugh should shake down a lew ol the
musty old cobwebs that are hanging
there. If you want to ruin your
sons, let them think that all mirth
and social enjoyment must be left at
the threshold without when they
come home at night.

Even if you're not going to appear in one of our Smart
Suits on Easter Sunday, you'll certainly want to trim up
with a new Hat, Tie, pair of Gloves, a pair of Shoes, or
something fresh in the Toggery Line.
On the first day of the month,
after they heard the clock strike
twelve a warm discussion took
place in McBride s Hardware Store,
Cranbrook, B.C., between a snd
iron aud a Souvevir range.
When pressed    lor an explanation,
order to smooth over things,   the
said iron said the range got hot and
flew oil    its base because it was
black leg and a fuel.
The range turned its back and said
the sad iron without reason went off
the handle. At this the jacknives
opened up and handled some cutting
remarks which caused the cose to
open and request them to pocket
their insults; but they refused to
back out ol the discussion or shut
up. It bad grown so spirited that
the thermometers dropped some remarks and then got hot and went up
in the air.
Tliea the chisel cut in with s tang
to its firmer remarks, but the auger
bit It because it had bore enough.
The plumb tried its level best to
square things, but everyone was
hot that a bar ol solder started to
run and was lead away by a handsaw which was screwed up tn such a
pitch that it showed its teeth and
said it never saw such cutting up.
Hut the ice cream Iree/er kept cool
and turned around with an icy stare
because it is quicker than lightning
when It is stirred up.
The range lost Its pipe and could
not smoke and began to elbow its
way along as tlie hose turned to rubber and started to spout, but was
shut off when the gun went off halt
cocked and plugged It.
It began to quiet down and did not

The highest altitude was attained
shortlv afterwards, when lhe balloon

height at this  period of the journey
was 10.000 feet
As the balloon was on its way
towards the Peak district pf Derbyshire it was necessary fur the aeronauts to decide either to make the
descent some distance short rf tlie

They had already ordered several
aeroplanes of the best designs, which

two or three weeks, The intention
was lu develop a British industry and
make Bristol its headquarters,
lie added that he believed in a few-

When we have determined which is
best we hope to establish a manufactory at Bristol. We believe there
are great developments ahead in

industrv which we believe will result.
"Wo expect delivery ol the aeroplanes that we have ordered in about
one month's time, and during the
coming summer we hope t,. hold demonstrations in public,"

Messrs. Moran and Mead, of the
Creston hotel, have received Iram
Mltcholl and Oarrelt, the Cranbrook
taxidermists, a splendid specimen ol
a goshawk. The bird was shot by-
Mr. .Mead a few weeks ago in Creston und it is now mounted and on
exhibition in the Creston hotel. It
is considered by naturalists anil
those familiar with tbe habits o|
birds of prey, that a visit from one
ol these pests of the air is very unusual at this time of the year. This
particular bird has gained quite
reputation in Creston. It bas been
llie terror o( all tlie chicken fan-
ciors In the district for the past
winter, aud many an aggrieved poultry man has taken ashot at Mr.
Hawk, but none succeeded in doing
die trick. ll appeared Lo have
charmed life.
Ucorge Mead has had troubles of
bis own with that bird, for, mark
ye, Mead is the premier producer of
game (owl and pigeons in the province, us wc all know; and when he
publicly registered an oath that he
would send that bird to "Helen
(tone," it was generally conceded
i bal something would shortly drop,
lie has mhfined his word; the bird
is down and out. It is stuffed and
now adorns the interior of the Creston hotel, and Mr. Mead, as well as
the rest of the chicken fanciers ol
Ibe surrounding district, lake a peculiar satisfaction over the fact.—Cres

months later—the Canal Zone will
( ny the scene of an Impressive core-
'nioiiy; tin- i-ivjli/.i'il world will look
on with intense interest while a re-
|prosontativo of llic greatest republic
of history speaks the words which
will soli'iuiii/.f tho union of the
world's grdatcst oceans through the
most stupendous engineering enterprise in the annals of time
It is a pity that the work can nol
he completed by September 25, iui-1—
tlie four hundredth anniversary ol
tlie day when Balboa sealed Culcbra
hill ami looked down upon lhe placid
waters of the Pacific; but that is
too much i" expect, although under
very favorable conditions, ships may
cross the isthmus by the (our hundred aud first anniversary.
After one lias been here a few
days and lias fell the growing enthusiasm which the project arouses, litem understand how the idea ol a
canal at this point has for nearly
four centuries haunted the minds id
As early as 1520 the king of Spam
caused a survey of the Isthmus lo
lie made with a view to tho construction of a canal, but a successor
lo the throne became alarmed lest it
might inure to the benefit of othei
nations and the enterprise was dis-
couraged until lhe eighteenth century.
While Balboa, Plz'arro and Gonzales were speculating about u canal
at Panama and llaiien, Cortcz was
looking for an international route
farther north and reported favorably
on the advantages of Tehauirtepcc,
Two and a half centuries later the
NIcaraugua route was Investigated
and from that time unlil Do Lesscps
began digging in IH.S2, tho plan of
joining the oceans was urged with
increasing force ami frequency by the
representatives of different nations.
Survey followed survey, plan followed
plan, and report followed report,
Americans and French leading in the
wnrk ol investigation.
The discovery of sold in California
quickened interest in a route through
or across tlie Isthmus ami iu ls"i"»
an American company completed a
railway from Colon to Panama, following the general line of the present
canal. It is not surprising that this
line was profitable, notwithstanding
the ilillicultii's attending its construction. It may moderate our
indignation at tlie extortion some-
limes practised by railroads in llie
United states, to know that at one
time the Panama road charged twenty-five dollars for carrying a passenger across the Isthmus, or about
fifty cents per mile, and even went to
the extreme of making a track-walker pay ten dollars for the privilege of
going on foot!
The railroad now belongs to out
government and is operated under
the canal commission, first class
passage being reduced to five cents
Iter mile, and freight to about one
dollar and fifty cents to three dollars and fifty cuts per ton.
In considering the canal, the subject naturally divides itself into two
parts—tlie physical canal that is, the
actual work of construction, and the
commercial canal, Including the In-
fiuence, direct or Indirect, wliich it
is likely to exert ou trade and civilization.' I shall observe t'.iis division
and consider the construction of tbe
caha) in this article, leaving to the
next the discussion of the project as
a part of our nation's contribution
to the world's welfare.
I find myself substituting the word
"large" for the word "great" In
describing the canal—it is really a
simple enterprise, multiplied until it
amazes one by its bigness. It iu-
rotves the ' dredging of a canal
through swamps aud out into tbe
oceans; the building ol locks and
dams and the cutting down ol hills.
but  these things are not new.
We are deepening harbors all the
time; here wc extend the harbors
mc distance Inland—but the principle is the s.i.n We have built
hundreds of locks and dams; these
the largest in the world, but a
lock is a lock and a dam is a dam.
We are excavating constantly; the
Culcbra cui is gigantic in dimensions
inn it differs from others only in
the time necessary and the money
The dredging will fake out eighty-
five million cubic yards of earth, the
welve locks will contain four and   a
half million cubic   yards of concrete
mid   the    steam   shovels will remove
seventy-eight     million    cubic   yards
from  ' the   cut,    but it is purely a
roblcm In     mat hematics.      That  it
an be done and will be done, no one
an doubt who will inspect the work,
(tf the sixteen miles of canal     between the locks ami deep water more
than half the distance has been dredged; of ihe dirt to  be removed from
the cut more than half is gone,   the
locks are   well     under way and the
fiat un dam is rising*
Tbe sea level canal is generally
called the ideal canal and vet tn be
leal a canal must tit into its surroundings and a sea level canal
would not fit into the conditions
The tnlal length of the canal is
fifty miles. From the Atlantic ocean
In Ihe CS.itnn locks, a distance nl
si'ien miles, a channel five hundred
feci wide is being dredged. Thi:
channel is forty-nine feet deep at
mean tide—the tide varying but eighteen Inches on the Atlantic side.
At Ont un n dam is being thrown
across the Chagrcs river, which will
raise the water tn a licieht of clirh-
tv-five feet above sea level. This
dam is the only feature nf the canal
which rivals the Culcbra cut in interest. Advantage is taken of two
hills, one nt the east side, through
which the locks nre built and one In
the center through which the snill-
wiiv passes. The dam itsolf will be
seven thousand five hiuidr'-d feet long.
The concrete dam Ht the spill-way
will be surmounted bv steel sates
which will control the lake level and
giro protection a'fttest all nossihle
floods. The flat tin dam will, when
completed, create n lake With a surface area of one hundred and sixty-
fo-'i- smiare miles.
The ca'inl rims for nhout twentv-
Ibree miles thrnueli t*'is lal'c and
hn* a Imftntii width of one thousand
feet for sixteen miles, a width of
Mtrhleon lu'mlred feet tor four miles
and n width of live hundred feat for
three miles. The canal varies from
eighty to forty tool In depth along
thi:;   section nud    rcqircH hut eleven
million yards of oxuuvaUoii, of
which oul)1 [out million yards remain
to be taken out.
This lake also furnishes an anchor-
ago basin of fourteen hundred acre.,
and the fresh water will rid the
ships of barnacles anil otlier bcu
Tbis lake, formed by the Chagrcs
river, answers scu-ral purposes; It
supplies all the water needed for the
IoCaS and for the general ion of electric power; it Buves an enormous
amount of nigging ami, most important of all, converts the Chagrci
from a menace into an invaluable
ally. At present its Hoods are the
terror of tlio Canal Zone, but when
it pours its raging torrents into a
great lake, it will be harmless. Al
its maximum it can npi raiso tho
level of the lake more than two tee'.
and ihe lake level can be lowered to
receive ihe Hoods when the rainy
season  begins
Tire Culebra cut presenl i the most
diiheult problem—at least the problem which has been most discussed.
Kor more I bun nine miles the canal
runs through a range of hills where
the excavating exceeds one hundred
feel iu depth and is, at llic present
point, five hi-mired ami I utiv-four
feet  deep       The bottom width of the
canal throughout this section is throe
hundred Teet, exieuihd to flvo hundred feet at curves. The French began their work on the canal al tlto
highest point, but the cresl ol the
ridge is narrow and then plans contemplated a width of only seventy-
two feet.
When Ihe American c mission entered upon the task .hue was a
prism containing seven.\ eight million cubic yards of earth and stone
to lie removed, hut such satisfactory
progress has liebn made lhat the sum
has already been reduced in thlrty-
eiglil  millions.
This cut is a hive of Industry; some
are drilling and blasting some are
operating immense steam shovels,
some are hauling long trains lo the
dumps and still otheis are moving
tracks, running levels, etc., etc Tbe
dirt trains contain from eighteen to
thlrtv cars and one hundred ami for-
tv-seven trains are loaded dally in
the cut. The unloading is dime hy
means of a steam plow and hut seveii
minutes is required to unload a train.
Then a steam spreader comes along
[ind scatters the dirt and a track
lifter follows and moves the track
over whenever necessary.

"A world-wide scheme of philanthropy, stupendous in its scope," is
being'worked out by John i). Rockefeller, the oil king, hy which he proposes to give away liis immense ior-
lune for the betterment of mankind.
A bill has been Introduced in the
t . S. Senate, providing for "The
Rockefeller Foundation," by which
the work will be organized and carried into effect. Mr. Rockefeller has
already spent $53,000,000 in educational work, besides oilier enormous
sums for missionary work at home
ami in foreign lands.'
Among "the dying nations" M.
Rerie l.avnlle, a French writer nf
high repute and a keen observer, has
classed bis own nation. He knows
his fellow countrymen well and declares emphatically that his people
arc a decaying race. The hopeful
thing iu his unwelcome estimate is
that he fearlessly uncovers the real
cause of the nations rapid degeneracy.
This mav prove half tin remedy, lie
specifics the causes: increasing" sensuality, diminishing birthrate,
growth of drunkenness, and the loss

combination, tho.' A wider open-
door of hope for llic nation is suggested bv a recent Review editorial:

After a debate which lasted Binco
February 8 and which has produced j
nver one hundred hours of speech-
making by some eighty members, of !
whom a little over half are members
of the opposition and which constitutes one of the longest discussions I
mi any one subject in the history ofi
parliament, the vote on tbe opposition amendment to the naval bill I
which provides for the establishment
of a Canadian navy Involving an j
Immediate building programme of
eleven vessels with an expenditure oil
some $12,000,000 on construction and
organization account and an annual J
expenditure of something over
$3,000,000 for maintenance, was taken iu tbe commons shortly after mid-
nlghl  of Thursday last.
The supporters of the govcrhmenl
lined up solidly for the hill. Every
member on the government side of'
the house who was able to be present
cast liis vole against both opposition
amendments, Mr. Monk's amendment providing fur a plebiscite "I
the eleotors beforo the country was
committed to anv naval policy was
defeated hy a vole of 178 to is, and
Ml, Hi*Mini's am: ml men I was turned
down bv a vote of l.i.1 to 71. Messrs.
Blomlln, Lorllo, Forgot, Paquot,
Nanlel ami Clare deserted their leader and voted against his amendment
Mr. Monk did not vole,
When the vote nu the main (jliestlon
al the second reading nf ibe lull was
aboul to be taken Mr. Nortlirup, of
tbe opposition front benches, asked
that the vote hi- deferred until Friday, Sir Wilfrid Laurier courteously
consenting, noting that if the opposition members did not think they
could do themselves justice then be
bad no objection to giving them a
little more time.
A final and despairing cITorf the
iii-xt day on Ibe part of the opposition tn evolve a semblance nf party
unity from the chaos which has prevailed within their ranks since tbe
inception of tlie government's, naval
policy served only to emphasize ihe
hopeless position In which they have
placed themselves on the iiuesti'on of
naval defence, and lhe united Strength
of the governnienl.
After another day's talk much of
which was wearisome repetition of a
now familiar tale. Mr. Northrup's
eleventh hour amendment, Intended to
weld tbe various elements iu the. opposition together, was defeated by
ll" to 7N, a government majority of
II, and immediately afterward the
naval service bill was given its second  reading hy the same majority.
The contortions performed by Mr
Uordcn nud bis following since March
of last year1 were capped bv the extraordinary position assumed bv
Mr. Xorthrup with the consent of bis
leader. For five weeks- the opposition has been shouting their loyalty
from the house lops and prating
d a dire emergency demanding immediate action on the part nf Canada, and yet thev saw no inconsistency in putting forward an amendment which not onlv nullified their
previous policies, hut which was intended to postpone Indefinitely anv
practical step toward naval defence
on the part of the Dominion.
It was not necessary for a single
Liberal member to expose the absurdity    of   lln-   opposition's     latest
move. That was very effectively
done bv one of their own associates.
W. F. Mclean, who, in a speech of ro*
freshing candor told the so-ealhtl Im-
jierialist parly what he thought of
their short-sighted and unpatriotic
attitude. After declaring that he
was entirely mil of sympathy with
all ihe amendments emanating ' from
ihe opposition, tin- member f«.r South
York showed his contempt for the
party to wliich he is allied by staving away from the division. The
climax of absurdity in the Conservative position was reached when Mr*
Nortlirup, who fathered the amendment to give the bill the six months'
hoist, gravely announced that Canada bad no right to build aud control a navy of her own," and sm;-
gested that before emharkimr upon
such a course the question should be
submitted to the supreme court.

In this issue the Herald presents a combined list
of goods, with prices quoted and suggested, such as no
Eastern Departmental Store can rival—in variety of
stock, newness of guods, quality, style, nor yet In price.
The combined stores of Cranbrook can easily
out-rival any two Eastern Departmental Stores in the
stocks carried, the prices offered and the quality of
goods sold.
Investigation will prove this point beyond question.
By trading in Cranbrook you have the opportunity
of inspecting the goods and comparing prices on the spot.
You save time, trouble, postage, and express. You see
the goods you buy and buy the goods you see.
As to Prices!
On investigation it will bi found that the Eastern
Departmental Stores do NOT sell the same quality of
goods at lower prices than the Cranbrook Stores. You
may  think   they   do,  but tlie truth  is they do  not.
A comparison of the Eastern Department Store's
Price Catalogue with those of your Local Merchants
will prove the most convincing argument that
It Will Pay You to Trade

The present basic price of common
lumber, l.o.b. Vancouver, is SI 1, witb
some mills asking anil receiving »l.i>,

likely to soon advance. Logs remain
tairlv firm at the prices fixed by the
British Columbia Loggers' association last month—graded llr and
spruce at $7 and S!l anil $12, cnnip
run, tin, and cedar from til to till,
although it may be said right here
that the millincn do not take kindly
lo the grading plan, iirctcrring to
oiler a lump price por thousand lor a

lacl that most of the logs cut up
tlie    coast ure   towed to the North
Vancouver booming grounds tacilitat-
es a personal examination by the
mlllman or his agent. On the Pugct
Sound conditions arc different, nnd
buying according to grade is a real
protection and safeguard tn the mill
man, who mav thus safely contract
for a boom 200 miles distant.
Local log prices will likely remain
as they are for a month or six
weeks to conic, when they will proh-
nhly weaken a trifle. Many ol the
logging camps will get going in
March, nml the Increase in the number of nieces placed in the water will
gradually exercise an effect upon the
situation. True, there will lie more
mills und a much greater demand,
but there   will    also bo many new i
logging camps.
While the coast mills are well
stocked with orders, there nre reasons for believing that many ol the
prairie yard men are holding hack
in the expectation that prices ot luin.
lier in the spring will sag somewhat.
Just what has led them to adopt
tbis view is not apparent, and the
Western Lumberman ts inclined to believe tho policy Is a mistaken one
and likely to result to the loss ol
tlio experimenters. II ever there
was a time in the history ot Canada
when general trade conditions justified higher prices In the lumber business, the time is now, and In the
case ot tlie British Columbia mill
owner there is the additional factor
that the action of the government in
granting pcr|ictuity of timber licenses is hound to lend In the near future to a substantial Increase In
