w) Iran) prospeciivt builders, ami t>

Mr. Pell staled that he understood
that the counoil had made allowance
for street area cleared and intimated
that he would like them lo' take this

Evidently with the motive ol making the above mentioned land an exclusive residential section Mr. Pell in

cn operation of Ihe council and build
ing inspector in enforcing tho three
following lluilding restrictions nn the

TO CONTROL FOIIEST FIHE0
With Ibe arrival n| Iho warm days
which have prevailod fur the past week
British Columbia has la:rly entered
the danger xone in relation to the
greatest enemy ol her limber ^sources
—the forest fire. , Already conflagrations nt serious proportions have been

province and the provincial fire II..hi

make strenuous efforts lo curb Ihe
flames.
The fearful holocaust through which
the Cobalt and Porcupine districti ol
Ontario have jusl passed, serves as a
lorcelul reminder nf the terrible havoc
which is possible in the destruction ol
limber growth, of towns' and settle
meiils as well as iu loss nl life when
a conflagration nf thit nature goto
beyond control. British Columbia bus
passed through similar baptisms of lire
which although not of so large proportions as thai cited wero novertlie-
Its* of a most serious character, at
witness the great fire which swept the
mountains and Ihe valleys ol Ihe Slo-
e*n 1 iiiiii.s lint civ alter Ihe great Hood
oi I Mil and Ihe lire whicii wiped out iho
town ol Fernie, a lew years ago. The
records of the provincial fire lighting

What ihe record will lie for Ihe year
HHI de|ieiiil* primarily and chlclly
upon those who freipient the forests
for either pleasure or profit. There
is no doubt that u very large propoi-

An efficient and thoroughly organ!*-

LOCAL CENSCS HETCRNS
The main census returns aro now completed and havo been handed in. Another opportunity will not occur again
lor a period ol ten yeart. It is,
therefore, a ma tier of ibe great-
tit urgency lhat the population returns Irom North Vancouver cily and
ditlrict, lie swelled by tlie addition ol
the very lasl possible name. It is
thought by those who aro in position
to know thai o,uite 11 number of residents nn (he Norlh Shore could not
be reached by the enumerator! in tim■■
to insert their mimes in Iht firsl re-
Inin*. Arrangements have therefore
lieen made fnr supplementary returns,
for the convenience of those who have
been misted and lor the benefit nf the
ciuiiiiiuiiiiy. Every resident who it
not absolutely certain Ibal hit name
etc. was duly given lo the enumerators
should take u day off if necessary and
make sure thai ho it on Iht roll. Tbis
is a mailer concerning which no man
who is alive to his own intcrcits and
lo the interests of the community in
whicii ho dwells will lie indifferent.
Dnn'l be u dead ono; by all moans
get in on the census returns.

mora particularly in tin ^pptanays, a

as it appear! tn tbs governmental au-
ttlPritiss for such action would sn-m
tp bs perhaps desirable at tlio preient junclure. The ofliciuls pf iho Forest Protection brunch pi tba lands department, jt my ha said tt .In ont-
att, are fully in sympathy with the
objections pi those cpmrnonsuuno and
careful settlers who dp no1 *M Wily
they should bs deprived pf ihe iigh:.
to utilise fire in the clearing pi the'.r
lands and wbo cpntend lhat tbs
bringing ol their holdings undue cultivation ii thereby huni|»rod mil If
larded. Unfortunately, however, it it
impossible to diicriminate in the formulation ol rules and regulations between those who will exorcise due pro-
niiiiiimii and control tbeir fires  and
thote who will not do an, and the
fapt that mil pi finty roportl p| expensive fires ol tho present season
that are just to hand, land clearing
operations are let down at tbo originating caute in thirteen instances nl
1n11.1i 36 per cent—is ovidnne in itsoll
that some strict control ol such operations has become n paramount nec-
osiity.
,01 tbo thirteen fires referred to and
chargeable to land clearing but two
wero under requisite permit, and originated through insufficient care in
the handling of the settlers' fires. A
very common sourco ol destructive
loretl fires is proven to bo smouldering fire from slushing burning!, while
tho burning ol brush without sufficient
force to cope wilh any possible spread
of tbo flames is another established danger to valuable property. In
ono case recently, sparks from a clearing firot under permit, in tho vicinity
of S11I11111 in the Ymir district, occasioned f> fire whicii has cost ihe country no loss than $900 in fighting,
.which, had due care been exercised,
would not linm boon occasioned—tbe
province at the aume timo retaining 4
valuable tract ol timber now written
oil as lost.
Tbo clearing ol bind by fire ol
course, is attended with a minimum
riak during tho winter and spring
monthi, and during such seasons it
■hould lie arranged lor, although tbe
summer appeals to Ihe average sctllor
as tbe period beat suiting bit convenience. When fire is invoked during
dryer scusonB of the year, certain cardinal rules pi precautionary procedure
arc shown lo be essential, and
thoir obiervance would produce a laving ol million! ol dollari now counted ai limber waste.
Primarily slashings should not be
burned, Ibo timber reluse being collected into piles instead and cure being
taken lo leave a aulficient fire guard
between Ibe fire and adjacent inflammable material, either standing or
lull™ wood or dry grass or buildingi.
Again, it ia proven to be ol great nd-
vantage Ibal Area for clearing bo light-
ed at'night instead ol during thu day.
the alnioiphcro being heavier during
tbe houn ol nigbl, Ihe loreilaliou and
vegetation generally being damper
tparks carrying wilb leal facility, and
it being coniidcrably easier to locate
communicated lire, Constant watchfulness it, ol courie, (00, a molt im
portant lector ol safety, and when Ihe
rofuae detired to be consumed has
been thus diipoted ol, the settler
should look well lo tho omlicis, lest
these leit smouldering, should be
borne away by the wind lo prove Ihe
initiation ol a disastrous fire.
lieneinI and commonteusc ohMrvunce

which will suggest themselves 10 Ihe
average man of good judgment would
certainly result in an iminanao and
gratifying depreciation ol lb* Arc lou
