Several minini; men Iroui lhe

points. They move in their accustomed quiet way and have little to
say, but their presence indicates an
increasing interest in the district
throughout lhe mining world.
Mr. and Mrs. Fertnin Sauve have

Fierce forest fires during the past
week have been reported from the
vicinity of (irand Forks, Cranbrook,
Kernie, Creston, Nakusp and other
places. At times there has been
considerable alarm for the safely ol
some of the towns. Latest reports
indicate that there have been manv
dangerous outbreaks, but lhat they
have been in most cases brought
under  control.
A Coming Town.
A representative ofthe Chronicle
called a few days ago at the brand
new town of Kaleden, the latest
claimant to public notice as a fruitgrowing centre. Kaleden is beautifully situated on the western shore
of Dog I-ake, with a tract of about
3500 acres suitable for fruit lands
around it and extending for four
miles or so along the lake shore,
lhe soil is the characteristic valley
soil of the interior, but lighter than
that at Keremeos. Already many
lots have been sold, and a start
made on the town in the shape of a
building erected by Mr. Stevens of
Summerland for a general store. A
gasoline launch makes frequent
trips to the upper end of the lake
for the accommodation of visitors.
The town vvill be very well situated
as to connections vvith the outside
world when the dredging of the
Okanagan river opens up navigation between Okanagan lake and
Oog beg pardon. Lower Okanagan lake. Mr. Ritchie, the founder ol the town, is a gentleman who.
Coining out from Manitoba, saw a
rosy future for the fruit country,
settled at Summerland, and prospered there so that he has launched
out into making a town of his own.
Water for the fruit lands will be
piped under pressure from Marron
Luke, the capacity of which is increased bv the diversion of Sheep
Cnek to its basin. All the elements
■ppear tO be here   for   a   successful
settlement.
'Twas Just a Warning.
He Got Cold Feet.
A home-seeker Irom Walla Walla,
Wash., wilh his family and caravan, passed through Keremeos on
Monday on his way northward, intending to locate in one of the
northern valleys. He learned, however, on getting more accurate information than that on the strength
,.| which he had started out, that In*
Stead of SO miles us he expected he
would have a journey of about 200
miles before him. Before reaching
Princeton he sounded a retreat, and
on Wednesday paseed this point on
his return trip southward.
Minister Appointed.
Rev. Arthur Ransome, M. A.,
a graduate of Cambridge I'niver-
sitv, has been engaged lo take
charge of Keremeos mission, and is
expected some time in October.
Mr. Ransoms since his ordination
has been engaged in church work
in the old country, and is very highly spoken ol bv I hose among whom
he has been Stationed.
The chill of winter will soon be
upon us. Buy a suit of Campbell's
clothing.     F. Richter it Co.
A fire that threatened the Keremeos Land Co's warehouse in the
railway yard on Wednesday afternoon was discovered in time and
nipped in the bud. It is supposed
that a spark from an engine lighted
in the fragments of hay and other
debris in front of the building, and
when noticed the blaze was making
its way up the wooden supports on
which the building stands. As the
warehouse was pretty well filled
with pressed hay and other merchandise it would have made a fierce
fire if nc«t checked in good time.
An outfit of chemical fire extinguishers, scattered through the town,
would be an excellent investment
for Keremeos. They would be
much more likely to be useful than
a small engine, and would cost
much less. A prudent householder
may get one or more for his own
protection, but as they would be as
likely to be of use to his neighbor
as to himself it would be more
equitable to assess the cost all
round. In the absence of a municipal organization this might be done
by mutual agreement. We offer
the suggestion for the consideration
of the Hoard of Trade.
As a result of Wednesday's little
blaze the railway company has
promised to put a double screen on
the smokestack of its construction
engine and to equip il with 100 feet
of hose.
Nelson Fair.
H.  Lawrence   of  Nelson   vvas   in
town  from    Friday   to   Tuesday   as
the guest of J. Knudson, looking
after his ranch in Brushy Bottom,
and incidentally distributing a parcel of prize lists of the Nelson Fruit
Fair, which is to be held Sept. 22.
23 and 24. This exhibition, while
it is called a fruit lair, takes in many
of the olher departments to be found
in an ordinary county fair, such as
poultry, dairying, ladies' work,
manufactures, etc. Keremeos or-
chaidists and ranchers would ilo
well lo prepare and send a creditable exhibit.
K.  ti. Robertson   of Naramata,
with his wile und family, has been
spending a few days this week in
the vallev. Mr. Robertson is charmed wilh this part ol the country and
is considering returning to take up
his residence here.

Politics in the (ireenwood riding

Oliver's recent visit drew attention
to them. The local issue will be as

this district and removed to Prince
Rupert. On the Conservative side
several names are mentioned, any
one of whom would prove acceptable candidates. As far as the Liberal and Socialist camps are concerned no signs of life are as yet

one side just in time to avoid being struck by the top of a large tree
which came hurtling through the
ceiling. It crashed down upon the

Reports of consulting engineers
llolgale, Noble, Wollel and Johnson, on the piers and foundations ol
the Quebec Bridge, are said to have
been presented to the Bridge Commissioners, who vvill take a consultation on them at a meeting next
month. lhe experts are said to be
undecided as to what should be
done to supplement the present
piers. It is understood there is a
possibility of a suspension bridge
being built instead of a cantilever
design bridge being adhered to, a
consideration being that a suspension bridge could be put up in less

MlMliPMll_il_lillil.l DAMAGE TO FRUIT TREES
Report of W. E. Scott on General Conditions
Victoria, Aug. 23.—William B.
Scott, of the department of agriculture, has presented a report on fruit
conditions in the province. Mr.
Scott savs:
"After a visit to the principal
fruit growing sections of the province, and a careful examination of
the damage done, 1 have come to
the conclusion that the statements,
which have been in circulation from
time to time as to the amount of injury done, have been very much exaggerated. Statements of these
kinds are very much to be regretted, as they tend to depreciate confidence in this, one of our future
greatest industries. There have
been individual cases, where, owing
to exceptional circumstances and
local conditions, severe damage has
been done, but, take as a whole,
the orchards throughout the districts
which I visited looked extremely
healthy and vigorous.
"The fruit crop is light this year
throughout the province, but this
to a large extent is owing to the
heavy crop of the previous year,
and also in some districts to late
spring frosts.
"At Vernon, and district, the
orchards look vei y well, and I
should estimate the loss at not more
than 5 per cent. The same applies
to Kelowna, and Ihere also, as at
Vernon, the trees look very l igor-
ous and healthy, and the shortness
of the fruit crop this year will, especially in the case of young orchards, prove a direct benefit to the
trees by allowing them to make a
good wood growth and formation of
truit spurs for the   ensuing   season.
"At Peachland the damage has
been somewhat heavier, but at
Summerland, where very extensive
areas have been planted in peaches,
the damage is extremely small, in a
great many orchards which I visited
not amounting to more than from 2
to 5 per cent.
"At I'entieton and Keremeos the
injury is somewhat heavier, amounting to about 8 to 10 per cent. At
Grand forks lhe orchards are looking very well; though in this sect-]
ion there has been a considerable
amount of harm done to the fruit on
the trees by hail, but this has been
only local and confined to a small
area. The loss in the orchards will
probably amount to I per cent.
"In the   Kootenays   ihe   damage I
there, owing to the larger amount
of snow which vvas  on   the   gTOUOd
when the cold   spell   came,   is   very
slight, and   amounts   to   practically
nothing.     Here  and   there   a   dead;
tree may he noticed,  but   these   are j
so few that probably  the   loss   does |
not exceed 2 per cent.
"On the lower mainland and Vancouver island, except in a  very   few I
individual cases, veiv little   damage
has been done.     Where loss has occurred it   has   been   owing to   local
conditions, and the treatment of the
trees.
"The practice has been prevalent
in some orchards throughout the
lower mainland and Vancouver Island of cultivating too late in the
season, thus causing a secondary
growth in the fall of the year. This
wood does not mature or ripen
properly before the winter sets in,
and should a cold spell occur, as
that of last winter, the sap wood
freezes and thus injures and in some
cases kills the trees.
"Loss from these causes can be
guarded against to a large extent in
the future by stopping cultivation of
the trees earlier than has heen usual
heretofore, and hy so doing allowing the trees to mature their season's growth properly.
"Another interesting feature is,
that some varieties have practically
suffered no injury whilst others have
suffered badly. This will prove a
valuable lesson for those setting
out orchards in the future, as bv
selection of those varieties which
have proved immune, the risk from
a future similar loss will be largely
eliminated.

universal practice in Canada is to
destroy them at one onslaught and
leave a desert. To convert the Upper Similkameen from a forest into
a desert would £0 a long way toward baffling the work of converting the Lower Similkameen from a
prairie into a garden.
The lumbermen are of course on
the alert to conserve their interests,

commission their claims and wishes.
They are exceedingly anxious to
have timber licenses made permanent, instead of renewable from

far as its investigations lead tn a
fuller knowledge of our timber areas
and the manner iu which they are
handled, no doubt its work vvill be
ot some value. Hut in the adoption
of general rules for the administration ot forest lands the province
may profit far more by Studying the
experience, and especially the mistakes, of other provinces and other
countries. In no way does the
position of Hritish Columbia differ
so materially from that of other
continental areas is to require a
very different  forest   policy.    It is
from volumes of evidence and argument from interested parties. The
lumbermen claim that if their tenure
were permanent self-interest would
impel them to conserve their holdings. What has been the experience in Ontario? That the lumberman vvill not he careful in his
cutting so long as there are plenty
of fresh fields of operation to fall
back on. Another thing to be
learned from Ontario is that a yearly license, when it is transferable
and when the practice prevails of
renewing it from year to year, soon
acquires the status of a vested interest   and    becomes    practically   a

The prospect of having two more
railroads soon, the C.N.R. and the
G.T.P., has slirred Kamloops to
activity in several directions. Its I
business men seem to have a lively
appreciation of the opportunities be-
| fore the town, and of the need logo
half way and more lo meet those
Opportunities. Ihe board ot trade,
with the co-operation of the city
council, will  undertake   a   vigorous
! publicity campaign, directed from a
permanent olliee.    Individual enter-1
prise, too, seems to be very prompt
lo anticipate a boom, and in the
CaM ol real estate to over-discount
it. If the K.imploopiaus are as
level-headed as they are keen and
hopeful they may go far especially
vv hen irrigation begins to work its
magic along the Thompson.
The government report on forest
fires in Canada during the last year
shows that timber was damaged to
thc extent of $25,500,000 and that
twenty-one lives were lost. Forty
million feet of timber were burned
in British Columbia, and much other
property, including all fernie.

The Province Grows.
A gain of over §15,000.000 within the past year in the assessable
value of property and Income subject to provincial taxation over the
preceding year, an increase ot over
16 per cent., is the net result ot the
provincial assessor's returns for the
current fiscal year. These returns
just completed spL.;,|< volumes for
the continued progress and prosperity of the whole of Hritish Columbia.
In no part of it, judging by the
figures given out, can he found the
least sign of depression, financial,
industrial or commercial. The figure- are eloquent of progress every.
whire. They show that the assessable value of property and income
has reached $104,<>l.i,000. Last
year it was 119,649,000. lhe increase therefore is over $15,275,-
000. Within the past six years the
increase has heen $56,<)28,000, the
total Value of property and income
assessable by the province, which is
outside of that assessed by the municipalities, having doubled within
that period. The increase in municipalities has no doubt even greatly
exceeded this  remarkable   advance.

gineers and assistant to second vice
president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway company, said in part.
"The principle of irrigation as a
means at insuring crop production is
confined in Canada to the southwestern portion of the province of
Saskatchewan and the southern portions ofthe provinces of Alberta and
Hritish Columbia. In the first two
provinces irrigated land is used
chiefly for the production of grain,
fodder and root crops, but in Hritish Columbia the areas are utilized
for the growth of fruit. Irrigation
in all these provinces is a matter of
comparatively recent history and, in
fact, may be said to be the result of
the last 20 years.
"The use of water through irrigation has now, however, extended
beyond the experimental stage and
has made wonderful strides during
the last ten years in reclaiming
large areas. In southeastern Saskatchewan the systems, though
numerous, are small and are largely
confined to the areas on the north
and south slopes of the Cypress
hills, and the introduction of systems for the reclamation ttt large
ureas in that district is limited hv
the insufficiency of the water supply.
WATBS  ABUNDANT  ix  H. C
"In Hritish Columbia, which is   a
rigation block,' as it is commonly
called, is bounded on the west by
the How river, on the east by the
line between ranges 10 and 11 west
of the fourth meridian, on the south
by the How river and on the north
by the Red Deer river and the north
boundary of township 28. It has a
length from east to west of 150
miles and an average width from
uorth to south of 40 miles, and its
magnitude may be illustrated by
stating that it is larger than the
states of Connecticut and Rhode Island combined.
" In developing this irrigation
project the block vvas divided into
three sections—eastern, central and
western -containing about 1,000,-
000 acres each, and the construction of canals and incidental colonization is being carried on along the
lines of development of the sections
separately, beginning with the western.
TOTAL area 1,200,000 aches.
"The general engineering surveys
so far completed, indicate that ot
the total area about 1,200,000 acres
can he irrigated, of which 550,000
acres are situated in the western
section. The water for the irrigation of land within this block is diverted from the Bow river at two
main points, the most westerly being situated   about   two miles below

ONTARIO WAKES UP.
An Old Settled Tract to be Restored to Forest.
What appears to be the hegin
of a movement, not for forest preservation but for forest restoration,
is leported from Ontario, in the
shape of a project presented at a
meeting of representative men ofthe
counties of Northumberland and
Durham, held at Coburg at the call j
of the council of the united coun-
ties. In these two counties there
arc about 15,000 acres of sandy!
land,    this    area    extending     from
Burketon station on the C.P.R.  to
Rice   Lake,   and   forming   an   area
about   thirty   miles   in   length    and
from half a   mile   to   four   miles   in
width.    Originally a fine growth of I]
pine covered this   land.     After  this j
vvas cut off farming operations were
carried on for some years with fairi]
success, hut of late the soil has ]
steadily been growing poorer and ]
very few farmers are now left. ]
Buildings and fences have been left
to go to ruin, areas of "blow" sand
have formed and in some cases the
good land is being covered up by
the sand. Moreover, this land
forms the water-shed between the
waters flowing into Lake Ontario
and those feeding the Trent river.
The clearing of this land has
brought about the result usual in
such cases, for the streams are torrents in spring-lime, while in late
summer and autumn their beds are
almost dried up. That this land
can grow line timber is proved by
the great stumps and the young timber which can be seen everywhere
on it.
These 15,000 acres can, it is
thought, be bought at an average
price of five dollars per acre. Ten
dollars per acre is a liberal estimate
of the cost of growing the young
trees required and planting them
and the total of all expenses at the
end of sixty years is estimated to be
about a hundred and sixty-live dollars per acre. This estimate includes the purchase of the land, cost of
plants and planting, management
and protection and taxation (at the
rate of 17 mills on the dollar).
Studies of the growth of pine in
similar regions warrant the estimate that at the end of sixty years
there will be growing on the average acre of forest two hundred
trees of eighteen inches in diameter.
At present prices the timber would
be worth six hundred dollars. In
other words, after an allowance of
three and a half per cent, per year
has been made on the capital invested, a sum equivalent to a yearly
revenue of about two and a quarter
dollars (almost half the original
cost of the land) is realized. A
plantation made in Durham county
about four years ago on sand land
such as that just spoken of is now
making good growth.

The province of Ontario, the report referred lo points out, has olher
similar areas which can be put to

too, there exist tracts vvhr li can he

Ce Albert, Sask., for instance, has ji
splendid opportunity for creating a

ofthe sandy jack pine lands just

States action is being taken along
this  line, the   Stale   Legislature   of

session passed an act authorizing
municipalities to purchase land for
the purpose of creating municipal
forest reserves.
