CANADA'S   FISHERIES
The annual report on Canadian fisheries, tabled in the House of Commons
Tuesday, lays emphasis on the fact
that the fisheries of Canada are the
most extensive in the world. Proceeding to quote figures, the report says
that the whole catch of fish by Canadians, including fish products, during the
1907-8 season was to the value of
twenty-five million and a half dollars.
This is a falling oil of three-quarters
of a million dollars as compared with
the production for the previous fiscal
year. The decrease in British Columbia alone more than accounts for the
deficiency, and is attributed chiefly :to
the production of salmon.   The value of
Any Chump Can Kuock.
Don't criticise your neighbors'  faults,
no matter what they do;
Don't ridicule the masses or malign
the chos.n few;
Don't think jourself a censor of the
silly human ilock,
And just remember as you go that any
chump can knock.
Don't laugh at those who make mistakes or stumble on the way.
For you are apt to follow them—and
almos*. any day.
Don't think the other's saifting  sand
while you are solid rock,
And don't forget for heaven's sake,
that any chump can knock.
Don't be a puller-down  of  fame  on
other men conferred;
Don't give a parting kick to one  who
fell because he erred;
Don't think that you are  perfect  and
the only size in stock,
And now, on e more, just bear in mind
that any chump can knock.

Nkw Yowt, Feb. 16.-T is is the
story of a wilfuiand recreant cow.   O.
the story tne owner ot the cow, Thos.
Ward, a wealthy contractor, with at.
estate at Nelson avenue^and One Hun.
dred and Seventieth street, has colla
boratedwith the police department.
The cow's nam* is Edna; but upon
this, except for purposes vf romance,
no great stress is laid on the unravel'
ing of tbe f ale.   Edna is 11 jears eld,
a silken-coated, docile demu*e, domta-
tic animal.   She was the pet ot the
family until Thursday night last, aio
from thes until last nignt, was iu ra-
mom.
On that Thursday night Edna strayed away. Mr. Ward hunted the
neighborhood and reported her dis-
appearance to the police. Capt. Bren-
nan and all his men knew the cow.
"Wanl'scow" was one of the nightly
topics of conversation in the Bronx
after tbe weather and desultory subjects had been considtred.
Men than this, Ward's cow was a
bit of a toper. Bear with her was a
beverage and ahe called nightly at tha
family entrance to the Municipal hotel
at Tranent and Bathgate avenues, and
there tbe policemen bought for her
beer that they might have imbibed
themselves but fer the regulations of
Bingham. Bat tbe cow never got
drunk. Th* policemen were daref ul of
that, even if in protecting her tbey had
to violate tha regulations.
Capt. Bronnan sent his staff after
bar, and than called in Capt San Pries
of the Bronx Detective bureau, Capt
8am also knew Ward's cow, snd ha
promptly constituted himself a board
ef strategy. Two of his sleuths traced a cow from tbo Bronx to * Brooklyn abattoir, but they arrived only in
time to capture tho hide from tbo tannery. Tba rest of bor waa on tba way
to many houses. But they brought tbe
bide back to tbo Bronx, and, ono after
another, tbepatrolmeo, passed in review and said tho hide was that which
In lifo was worn liy Ward,a cow.
To tbo amassment, aad equally tho
Joy, of everybody, Ward's cow last
night paid her interrupted visit to the
•' family entrance of the Municipal, which
is almost directly opposite tha police
station, and tbon wm captured. Mr.
Ward was communicated witb. and

be would havo a substantial chock.

'■ One of the most important cases, if
hot the most important, that has ever
come before a court of revision in British Columbia will be ..eard in Nelson,
commencing February 25, when the
appeal of thn Canadian Pacific railway
against the assessment by the provincial government of the company's wild
lands in the Nelson, Slocan, Golden and
Fort Steele districts will come up for
hearing before R. S. Lennie, who has
been specially appointed to hear the
appeal. The case involves a matter of
between $125,000 and $150,000 to the
province annually in addition to taxes
and it hinges upon the right of the
government to tax the land grant of
the Biitish Columbia Southern railway,
whirh up to last year was treated as
exempt.
The government last year, however,
issued instructions to its officers to
assejs this land and this was done.
The company now disputes the right of
the province to assess the lands in
question and has refused to pay the
tax es demanded. Mr. Lennie, as judge,
of the court of revision, will be asked
to pass upon the company's liability in
the matter. His decision will not be
final, it is said; for both sides are determined to see the matter, through,
This means that there, will be an appeal
no matter whLh side loses*., and the,
case will eventually go to the privy
coiinel!.
. The lands in question were part of
.he grant given by the provincial government to the British Columbia South
<-rn railway. Uridyl- the terms of the,
grant the company has always claimed exemption from taxation on its
Unas, ai.d this claim has never beep
a'apUted up to the present. Now, however,   the   government  has asserted
I
was sele ted by the g-pvernmei.t for tbe
position and  an  ordeit-in-council  was
. pa8sed«ppoinai%Ssl*a lo it.   Mr. Len-
h» bearing, which is likely to take up
nie has set February .25 as the date for
!hi
vm
The total number of acres which the
government has assessed is in th
neighborhood 'of *S,0(Moi), of 'which1
two-thadd ia in the Nelson district and
the remainder in the three neighboring
districts of Golden, Slocan and Fort
Steele. The appeal taken by the C.
P. R. is not only agaiflat the assessment for 1908, but also against that
for 1909.

Seattle Exposition, and are remodeling
all our pleasure resorts in the. Rockies.:
The hotels at <J lacier, Lake Louise and
Banff are being enlarged in order to
afford more accommodation, and we'
expect to be in a potition to take care
of all visitors to the Fair who will return to the east over our line. The
mountain resorts are being entirely'
renovated and will be ready for the*
spring business. That travel through
the Rockies this year will surpass all
previous records goes without, saying,'
