a larger body of water which is public to many communities, cared for by
none, and is the repository of the sow-
age of all. Acting upon this principle,
many American and a low Canadian
cities have .acquired the land surrounding tho sources ol the small
lakes and streams furnishing their wu.
ter supply. Not mily have communities done this, but in some instances
where the water is supplied hy a company or private individual this policy
hus been followed. Such land is usually rough, rocky, of little value for
any other productive purpose and cm
order that there might be no danger
sequently   cheap.
The original idea in buying the land
was to withdraw it (rum settlement in
uf pollution of tho water. Further
investigation proved that when such
land was covered with forest it nnl
ouly returned a profit as shown ahuve
but a", is a imd a beneficial infiumce on
thu water supply itself. Small watersheds, such as ilni.-'i' frum which many
of our cities derive thoir water supply,
depend upon the local precipitation ol
moisture. This moisture escapes in
four ways from ths ground upnn
which it falls; by evaporation, transpiration, surface run-off and seepage
run-off. Tho water which evaporates,
or which is carried off by transpiration through vegetable matter, is lost.
It ii ii| iiii the suiliiie run (iff and
seepage runoff, which are, under ordinary conditions in Bantam Canada,
about one-ball the total, that the reservoir must depend.
Evaporation is lesa in the forest
than in the open.  The rate of   eva-

Victoria,, .lan- S8-Two inteniting
projects, iiliimiit uiniilur in title snd
iilcnlicsl in object, occupied tbo committee on private  bills .nnl   .■ iiuiilini:
nriii'i'ii during tbo poat week. Tbiy
wero tbe Iiiilu to incorporate tbo
liroiisc Miiuiiliiin Sconic Incline Huilwny Conipuny ond fho Groins Mountain Scenic Jlailwoy Company. The
latter bill wai Imiinl not to bavo com
pliwl with stiiniliiii,. orders siniie it Imd
iiilci'i'ii.-i'il in a Vanconver paper (lhi
Saturday Suniet) but bad not advertised in a paper published in Nortb
Vancouver, tbo diitrict directly affected. In view ol tbe lact that tbe Saturday Suneot circulated in North Vancouver and in there was somo precedent lor tbo action the promoter! woro
warned to be more careful in luture,
and on spucial circumstances being explained, tbc bill was again given first
reading in tbo Logislaturo and was ic-
lerrod to tbo railway committee. It
should bo added also tbat tbo private
bills committee in reporting on tbe
Grouse Moiinluin Scenic railway bill
advised that tho namo ol the compnny
lie ih. ii -.il so as not to conflict with
l but ol the Grouse Mountain Scenic
Incline Ruilway Company. Both bills
will next bo dealt with by the Hail-
way Committee, who will decido whether they cover similar routes and uill
thresh out any discrepancies between
ihem. Wiib two companies li^'bt-
ing for charters it certainly seems
likely that visitors will bc able to travel on rails to ibo summit of .Irousc
Mountain in the near future.
Another bill which promises to bring
a great pleasure ground within caiy
access ol tbc peoplo ou tbe sdjac/nt
mainland passed second reading during tho week. This was thc bill setting nsiili- 376 square miles jn thc vicinity ol Iiuiiii'',.- I iil.a-, Vancouver Island, as a provincial park. Hon. Prill)
Ellison, minister uf finance, wbo moved tho second reading, described in
glowing terma the scenery ol this
liniiiiiiiiiii walled purk as be had seen
it last summer. He pictured Bultlo's
I .il..' us ii body ol water clear as cry
■•liil, iiiiiI fed by streams nud waterfalls Irom which the mist mono like
smoko. Finest ol ull tho lalls, bow-
ever, wore those ol Campbell river cn
i.ani.a Then' lhc waters Iall sheer
over a precipice for 13(1 feel, and the
silvery spray throws oul rainbows
gleaming in the sun. He announced
lhat il was the intentiou ol the government to open up the park by building a motor road in Imm Campbell
river which is only ubout ;H> miles distant Irom lluttlc's l.akc. Aa Campbell river is accessible by a comparatively short steamboat (rip from Vancouver it should be nn eusy mailer
(or the people ol litis vicinity to reach
this new pleasure ground.
The Atlorney-Gcncrul's bill lo regulate the traffic in molor vehicles passed second ivuding wilbout eiilieism in
lhe House; thut came from outside (lie House in a numerous delegation ol mi 11.111 uliili. men wbo camo
down upon Hon. Mr. bowser on Wednesday night with a whole ln.il ol
suggested changes. Most ol Ihem wero
mailers uf detail and some seemed to
meet with the approval of lhe Altor-
uel-Generul and others did nol, ihOtlgh
he took patient note of ull, Mr. T.
S. Duller, who acted as spokesman ol
the delegation, concluded by asking
Ihnt a clause be added lo Ihe bill,
giving pedestrians the rightol way at
niiiit crossings,but vi'lililes (ho right-
ul wny in between. He pointed out
thut nii'ideiils often occurred ihruugb
persons darling suddenly across tbo
street in the middle ol a block. Tbe
Aiiiiiiu-y Gi'iii'inl promised to coruider
Ibo suggestions Ibat wero made and
there will undoubtedly be some changes mude in tbc bill when il ii considered in committee ol tbe whole fiouie.
Hon. Dr. Young's bill aulboriting
Ibe provincial Board ol Hcallb to
nml.'' regulations for lho inspection of
logging ramps, sawmills, al, , nut
wiib some criticism from the Socialist
memlitrs wbo (bought Ibo regulations
should be named in tho bill and not
loll to tbo Board of Hoaltb. Tbii
gave rise to a warm discussion in
wbicb lho debaters on botb sides wandered rather fur afield. Messrs. Haw-
Uiorntbwaitc and Williams claimed
that Ibe bill was Ibe result ol their
agitalion lor Ibe workingmen, bul was
introduced by llie government at Ibll
juiiiiiiii' tp make political capital.
The l'rumior rotorled Ibat bills to
accomplish tbese ends whet introduced
by Socialists, contained dotails so
drastic and revolutionary as lo ren-
dor Ihem impossible. If Socialists
were in power and spent their whole
Iimi' over such legislation (be province
would go to ruiA and it would be impossible to git an honest day's pay for
an honest day's work. Tbe bill gol
