British   Columbia   Is'  Immeasurably
Better Off Than Under
OTTAWA, Dec. 8.���If there was
any one province which was given
the worst of it by the reciprocity
pact, it was British Columbia. There
was very apparent discrimination
against the Coast province. The
market of British Co.umbia was.
thrown open to its competitors in
Washington and Oregon, which to
an industry like fruit-growing, unable in return to take advantage _f
tlie American market, would have
been a serious matter. Oil the other
hand tht duty >vas retained on such
products as lumber and coal where
British Columbia stood to profit by
the opening of the American market.
Official -omparisons of the new
Underwood tariff and the reciprocity
schedules go to show that, as was
predicted by the Coafcervatives, British Columbia will with the new
Democratic tariff be immeasureably
oetter off, The American market of
the -States to the South is now available lor the varied industries of
British Columbia, while the home
market is preserved. The greatest
advantage under the Underwood
tariff over the reciprocity pact is to

The references of Rev. Alexander
Dunn, D.D., in his sermon to the Old
Timers of Mt. Lehman, on Sunday,
November 30, to the worthy work
they did in laying the foundations
ot the prosperity and advance of
that district in present times, met
with much appreciation from the
large congregation that assembled
on that occasion, ar-'d at the request
of the leading Old Timers, Rev. Dr.
Dunn has been prevailed upon to
furnish the British Columbian with
the concluding part of his sermon.
Dr. Dunn, who based his remarks
on I. Peter, chapter 1: "Add to your
faith virtue, to virtue knowledge,
and to knowledge temperance,"
I realize that I am today addressing a body of pioneers, men and women worthy of honor and respect,
the men and women who have well
and truly laid the foundations of
the Mt. Lehman settlement. By
comparison you had a heavier and
mpre formidable undertaking confronting you than any other body
of pioneers of the Fraser Valley. So
heavily timbered was the district,
when .you first beheld it, that it
might well cause, even the strongest, bravest men to pause and consider. .Men eminently distinguished
in the different walks of life, as
scientists, artists, poets, discoverers,
have been spoken of, and spoken of
correctly, as inspired, in a sense,
by Almighty God in the performance
of the work they accomplished. Sir
Isaac Newton, for example, ln his
discovery of the law of universal
gravitation; Shakespeare in the production of his many marvellous
dramas; and Columbus in his dis-
C very   of   America,   pressing   west-
ird in spite of daily threats of
ceath.r In like manner the steps of
pioneers, acknowledging God in all
their ways, have been directed by a
Divine hand, when they were moved in a manner which they could not
or did not resist, to leave happy
homes, sometimes luxurious homes,
in highly civilized communities, to
settle down in the forest primeval,
and contend with the heavy clearing which they met���say in Mount
Lehman. Only men, strong in body
and in mind, men under the spell or
that propelling force of which 1 have
been speaking, could have done
what you have done or endure what
ycu have endured. I have met
pioneers who candidly confessed
that their coming to this province
���ud their settlement in it, was not
the result of a process of reasoning,
nor of a' well-informed Judgment.
Something impelled them to come,
and when they came and saw what
they had come to, they felt like re-
tun ing, and would have returned
straightway had they possessed the
wherewithal. Do not such con-,
siderations indicate or imply a superintending, over-ruling Providence? "A Divinity that shapes our
ends, rough hew them how we will."
If it required grit of no ordinary
quality to make a start in carving
out a home in the forest, no less
but more grit was required to persevere in the work begun. For had
the labor of felling giant trees,
cutting them into manageable
lengths, and clearing away the remaining rubbish, been immediately
remunerative, it would nave given
zest and spirit to the work. There
would have been an accompanying
stimulus. But for years the reward was away in the distance, and
vncertain at that. After years of
toil, and though each of you the
owner of 160 acres of land, much
ar.xious planning and close calculating, were required to obtain lawful
possession of a few dollars wherewith to buy the necessaries of life.
With most, if not all of you, the
lrng battle has been fought and
won.    To   use   another   figure,   you
have reached the summit of the
mountain the climbing of which
often seemed steep aud rough and
cisheartening. You can now look
back and suryey with joyous satisfaction the result attained; the summit has at length been reached. In
other words and in plain terms, the
many fir and cedar trees, which
stood in your way, have been got
rid of one way or other. Gradually,
year by year, you have enlarged
your clearings, adding field to field.
Your industry and skill are further
evidenced by the erection of attractive residences as well as of substantial outbuildings. Moreover
there is now the absence of that
wearing anxiety which the fond
parent experienced when at a loss
to know where fhe money was to
come from with which to buy food
and clothing for himself and family.
Most of you can look back to the
place you came from and, comparing
your condition and circumstances
there with your condition "and circumstances here, and without the
shadow of boasting or exaggeration,
declare that you are better off financially here than you could ever
have expected to be there. And the
prospects for your children are infinitely better. Here, then, I call
upon you to raise your Ebenezer,
saying: "Hitherto hath the Lord
helped us, and brought us thus far
in safety, in plenty, and ln peace."
Your history as a settlement or municipality has ,-oeen exceedingly
creditable, and no less so has your
history as a church. It was on the
| 15th of March, 189fi, that this
; church building was opened for
1 Divine worship, when Robert Scott
i was missionary, and when Neil Craig
j and Frederick Carmichael were ordained elders. For one whole year
i I served you, from April, 1889, until
April, 1890. For thirteen consecutive years I returned to your settlement, once or twice a year, to conduct Sacramental services, and to
j baptise children, exchanging duties
with the student-missionary in
charge at the time. 1 lookef for-
; ward to these annual visitations
; with peculiar pleasure. The days
, were always days of joy and gladness. When my duties at Mt. Leh-
1 man had been discharged I was conveyed by buggy either by Neil Craig
' or by Dan Nicholson to Aldergrove,
baiting by the way for refreshment
either at Mrs. Morrison's or at Mrs.
McGregor's. The young students
who gave supply here for many
years were men of varying talents
and attainments, but all of them
were young men of unblemished life
and genuine piety. After they had
returned East to their studies, from
all of them I received letters (from
seme of them years afterwards)
breathing expressions of kindness towards you, and an unchanging Interest in your welfare and that of your
families. You and I during these
past years, have passed through
some sharp conflicts, and some dark,
gloomy rays, when, alas, we were
guilty of unworthy thoughts of our
Divine Leader, the Lord Jesus
Christ. How greatly our suspicious
unbelieving thoughts must have
grieved Him. As we retrace our
course today, "as in a map the voy
ager his course." having "seen the
end of the Lord," are we not deeply
ashamed of our past doubts and
fears? In the days that may remain to us. may we trust Him fully,
trust Him everywhere, trust Him

Judge's Charge,
In his Slimming up, following addressed by counsel for defence and
for the crown, Mr. Justice Morrison
practically dismissed much of the
evidence for the defence as perjured
and animadverting upon the impropriety of counsel for the defence having dwelt upon the sentences that
might bo passed on these married
mien, saidn.hat while he might also be
doing wrong in what he was going to
Bay, he could assure the jury that ihe J
limit for the most serious of the
three charges against the accused;
was two years, while on the other
two counts the penalty was only one
year in jail. He said further that it
was probable that he would take into
consideration the time already spent
in jail Iby the prisoners and that it
did not follow that, if found guilty,
the men would necessarily go to jail
at all.
During the course of his summing
up. His Lordship attacked counsel for
the defence, lie assured Hie jury
that they had exceeded the proper
limits f advocacy of the accused. He
told the lurors that they had nothing
to do with advocacy, but everything
to do with evidence. This was not
as suggested by counsel for the defence, a struggle between capital and
labor. No capitalist had had his
windows broken. It was one set of
men telling another set of men that
they must not work for theiir bread
and" butter. The attacked men also
had wives and families to support.
"AH these men can be found guilty
wiithout he slightest hesitation on
your pairt if yotu believe the evidence
for the crown." said His Lordship,
after which he declared that that was
tho evidence that should be beilieved.
Speaking    of    Identification,     the
count, said thnt too high a standard
of ideittiifieatlon might he demanded.
Which to Believe?
The jury, sadd His Lordship, had
to consider two diametrically opposite stories, Whloh wen- ifchey to tie-
lieve, the crowm witnesses or those
for lhe defence? Were they on an
equal footing? Xo. He considered
they were not. "The witnesses for the
accused and the accused themselves,"
said His Lordship, "are banded together In a secret organization. It
cannot be doubted that emanating
from that organization is Intimidation
and fear. May not one motive for
staying with the organization be fear
of what might result from breaking
away? There is the fear of ostracism,
of Isolation. It is a small community
where it is necessary to stand in with
the boss or with somebody. If ever
any of you gentlemen of the jury
have been in the same position you
can readily see how the small band
of non-union men were situated. They
also had wives and children and were
ordinary humdrum working men who
had no desire to change the laws of
the country or manage its affairs.
They left that t.o others."
"Can you hesitate for one moment
to say whioti of these two sets of
witnesses had a motive for telling
untruths? Ask yourself what the
position of the accused is."
In winding up his address His
Lordship said, "Which side are you
going to (believe? In my own opinion,
which is only my opinion, you cannot
have the slightest hesitation."
Court Adjourns 1'ntil Monday, When
Case oi Hex vs Cartwiighi Will
Be Culled.
VICTORIA, Dec. 11,���To accompany the new pre-emptors' map is*
sued by the Provincial Lands De-.
partment, Hon. W. R. Ross, minister of lands, has authorized the pub-t
licatioii of a series of descriptive!
booklets telling of the features and
possibilities of the various provin-,
oial land districts in the province.i
generally known as land-recording
divisions. The first booklet of the
series has just teen issued from tht
government presses, it covers thei
Fort Fraser land-recording division.
Another one for the Fort George*
district will shortly make it's appearance, to be followed by a booklet for
the Skeena district. The other
pamphlets will follow at a later
With a district map and a booklet
any prospective settler will be fur-*
nished with plenty of iuformatlonj
about any section he may desire to
locate in. As mentioned in a previous article relative to the new pre->
emptors mails, these maps show
clearly all land divisions, particular
reference being made to the natural:
districts, the soil, climatic condin
tions, lakes and rivers, settlements,-
roads and so on. They are designed1
to give the settler a comprehensive
and accurate idea of the country ini
the land recording division to" which
he may be attracted. The subject
matter in each pamphlet has been
prepared by a departmental expert
and is presented in a bright read-,
able form. Each booklet is replete
with illustrations showing the na-|
ture of the general countryside and;
the progress already made in farming and ranching. No time is wasted in glowing "write-ups," the intention being to give a sane truthful story of what each division is
suited for.
The Fort Fraser divison is described as being well adapted in many
sections for mixed farming, with
large areas suited for grazing pur-
purposes. The illustrations show
that grain crops are grown in many
sections to advantage. It is claimed
that the division contains over 2,-
0(10,000 acres of arable land and offers an attractive field for settlers,
now that the Grand Trunk Pacific
lias been extended across it. The
government office is at Fort F_raser.
The districts in this division to
which extended reference is made
comprise: Nechaco Valley, Fraser
Lake, Burns Lake and Endaco ValJ
ley, Francois and Ootsa la��es, Chil-
ako Valley, Stuart Basin add Bablne
Lake. Grain and root crops are*
easily grown, although in some
sections early frosts are prevalent.'
There is an abundance of wild hay
and it would appear from the government statements that an excellent opportunity exists for ranching,
although the coldness of the winter
would necessitate winter feeding of
stock. Dairying could be carried on
in many places.
(From Tlie British Columbian,)
To the surprise of all concerned
there were no sentences handed out
by Mr. Justice Morrison iu the special ussiii- court this morning iu con-
nection with the case of Allsop et al,
in which eleven out of fourteen
miners were convicted of unlawful
assembly and rioting.
On His Lordship taking his seat
on the bench, counsel for the crown,
Mr. A. Dunbar-Taylor, announced
that the case he meant to bring on
this morning, the South Wellington
case, Rex vs. Cartwright, in "which
ten men are accused of riotous destruction of buildings, could not be
brought into court before Monday
morning. Prisoners and witnesses
will beb rought over to the city on
Sunday and court will convene again
at 10:30 a.m. next Monday. The
reason advanced by the crown for
the delay was that a most Important
witness for the prosecution had
d'ed and his death had to be proved.
Monday's session is awaited with
interest as the sentences on the convicted miners will not be known until then.
VICTORIA, Dec. 8.���Speaking of
the significance of the result of Satin dqy's election of the islands con-
Istituency, hi which Mr. W. \V. Fos-
i let-, the Conservative candidate, was
returned by a large majority, Sir
Richard McBride said that the result
was not a surprise to him inasmuch
as he telt sure from the reports received during the campaign that the
government was lu good favor and
that Mr. Foster's candidacy was
heartily received everywhere.
However, owing to the strong
fight made by the Liberals a great
deal of Interest attached to the result. He took it as a direct endorsement of the administration's policies
with respect to land, railway construction, and finance.
These had been fhe lines of the
Liberal party's attack- The outcome was an indication that the
people approved of the laud policy
which had been ably defined and well
defended by Hon. Mr. Ross, preferring It to the impracticable and ill-
digested plans of the other party.
It was also to be taken that the
electors refused to believe that there
was reckless management in the provincial treasury but. tbat they were
convinced, as they had every good
right to be, that its administration
was never conducted more carefully
and that the country was never In a

VICTORIA, Dec. 5.���A London
dispatch announces the sale of $1,-
55o,0ou of British Columbia six-
months' treasury bills bearing 5 per
cent, interest, interviewed in respect thereto, Sir Richard McBride
"The Provincial government has
sold $1,550,000 of six-months' treasury bills' bearing five per cent, interest, in London, at par. In view
of the fact that the British government paid 4 3-4 per cent, interest
ou a recent issue of treasury notes,
the success attending the British
Columbia issue, which was taken up
with the greatest promptness, shows
beyond contradiction how high our
credit stands in the money niprket.
Reason for issue.
"Very natura.ly the public will
ask why necessity arose for the issue of these bills. It is the practice
oi all governments to -put out treasury tills for temporary purposes.
The British government very frequently does so, and the Dominion
government has done so on several
"Such bills are issued in anticipation of revenue, and it has been
deemed advisable to follow such a
course here. As everyone knows,
the province' began the fiscal year
with a large amount to its credit
in the bank, but with a programme
of supply intended to exhaust the
greater part of it. This programme
has been carried out.
Na Curtailment.
"The government felt that in view
of the interruption of municipal and
other work, due to the financial
stringency, it was not desirable to
curtail the expenditure in any way
and thereby add lo the embarrassment arising out of the general depression. I have not the exact figures before me, but the total expenditure on public works since the be-'
ginning of the fiscal year will prob-
ab.y be found to be somewhere between $8,000,000 and $..000,000, a
truly enormous amount for a province of half a million people, and
equal to what the Dominion was
expending only a few years ago.
Has Still Balance.
"This expenditure has not exhausted the bauk balance, for the
province yet has a very substantial
sum to its credit. Certain large payments, however, must be met shortly after the new year opens, and
there are several large sums that
wili then te payable to the province;
but in order that every bill may be
met promptly it seemed good business policy to make a temporary-
Had Three Courses.
"The receipts on account of extraordinary revenue have not been
what was expected, owing to the
causes that have affected all lines
of business, aud the government had
three courses open.
"One was to curtail the expenditures and thus accentuate the
general depression, another was to
force the collection of sums due the
province and thereby embarrass
many people; the third was to p:o-
ceed with the full programme of
public works and make a sma.l temporary loan to cover possible deficits
iu the revenue.
"The latter course was adopted,
and I think the public will concede
that It wai the wisest cours: ot the
three. I may add that the province
has tied up in the former Songhees
and Kitsilano reserves a _um equal
to the issue of treasury biils. It has
a^so a very large amount of accounts
receivable outstanding at 0 per cent.
"I'nder all the circumstances we
thought It was wise to issue treasury bills rather than to force the
collection of debts . payable and
thereby possibly have precipitated
results which in many Instances
might have proved disastrous to individuals. We thought it best to
employ the excellent credit of the
province to meet conditions arising-
out of a world-wide financial stringency.
' I may add that such issues as
tlie above are ordinary matters of
routine and are not unusually announced in advance. On some oc-
rasions governments arrange with
bonks for overdrafts; in others they
issue treasury bills, and the latter
is conceded to be by much the better plan, aa it leaves the banks free
to employ their funds in commercial

BELLINGHAM Dec. 9.���State
Senator Ed, Brown, from Custer, was
in Bellingham Saturday and states
that he has received a letter from
a member of the committee investigating the feasibility of building a
state powder mill. "The farmers
want the powder mill built so that
they can get cheaper powder," Senator Brown stated. "The principal
ingredient in the blasting powder
used here is nitrate, which is shipped iu here from Chile, where it is
mined, and used here as a fertilizer.
The nitrate can be bought for two
cents a pound, while we have to pay
12 1-2 cents for blasting powder."
Construction W^u-k Rushed.
CENTRALIA, Dec. 10.���Construction of the Puget Sound & Willapa
Harbor Railway is forging ahead rapidly. Grading between Maytown and
Centralia is practically completed,
while a crew has been started between Centralia and Chehalis. Southwest of Centralia the work is proceeding slowly owing to the wet
weather. There is activity, however,
in the vicinity of Bunker, a new town

E. W. Ferris has completed his first
annual report. The season's losses
are summed up in the following paragraph of the report: "Six hundred
and forty-six fires were reported during the season outside of those
burned under permits. Approximately 25,000 acres of cut-over land
burned over, of which 10,000 acres
would be classed as agricultural
lands. Very little merchantable or
second growth timber was killed.
The total loss was estimated under

BELLINGHAM, Dec. 11.���During
the year 1913 elections held in the
city of Bellingham have cost the
taxpayer? a sum total of $2,516.74,
according to figures compiled by
City Comptroller H. J. Korthauer.
This totai includes the cost of the
general city elestion recently held,
with its attendant primary election,
and includes also the cost of the two
elections held for the purpose of voting upon school bonds.

Poultry Show a Success.
MOUNT VERNON, Dec. 11.���The
second annual poultry show, which
was held in Mount Vernon last week
came to a successful close Saturday
evening. Superintendent J. C. Wetzel, of Burlington, heartily assisted
by Secretary E. H. Clay, of the same
city, worked faithfully for weeks
preceding the event and throughout
the entire session, with the result}
that the undertaking was not only
considered the most ambitious poultry exhibit ever held in this country
but the way has been paved for
