Board of Trade
Elects Officers
The annual general meeting of the
Ladysmith Board of Trade was held
last Thursday evening in Mr. John
Stewart's ollicc.
There was a very gocd attendance
and a great many jm;.«oi tant matters
were under consideration..
Alter the minutes had been read
and approved, the following new
members were declared elected: Dr.
Dier, Geo. Wilson/and'D. M. Carley.
Tlio following officers were elected
for the ensuing year: .*
President—J. Ai Blair.

Dier, Wilson and Rolston,
Thc expenses of the delegations to
Victoria and Vancouver, amounting
5:10.75, wcro ordered paid.
Mr. Nll'holson. reported the result oj
tho conference between the delegation
and the C. P. R. officials fet Vancouver, anil referred particularly to
tho assistance given 'by Mr^ Heaps,
president cf the Vancouver Board of
Trade. Mr. Marpole told the delegation that nothing could be done with
regard lo transportation until the re*
turn of Capt. Troup.
Tin secretary was instructed to

Messrs. Rolston and Biekle were appointed en auditing committee! to, examine the accounts and rc;ort at
r.cxt meeting.
Many questions affecting the welfare of Ladysmith were discussed,
and the sentiment was) bcncrally expressed, that the time-had now arriv*
cd when tho Board must pursua an
aggressive policy.
Bad Coins Worth
More than Genuine
The unusual occurrence of a counterfeit con 'bringing far more than
the value it was criminally intended
to represent by jfts makers took place
recently wl.cn a curious Spanish
doubloon of Charles IV of Spain, dat-1
cd 18(11, was sold lor ?0O at a sale
oi old coins at the Collectors' club,
111 New York,
The coin was of excellent workman!'*
ship, and there \v;-.s really ho sulking difference between it and the genuine. But instead of being stntcK. in
gold it was composed of plaliiiu.-n of
Hie purest quality, which hud bcon
fjii'ded.
The intrinsic value ot the Spanish
doubloon in gold is just over f,M>.
The platinum counterfeit weighs -120
grains,, which, at the prevailing market rate, would give this fnicee an intrinsic, value ot about WM.
Platinum was a favorite metal with
counterfeiters some yeaDs ago, when
its intrinsic value was about $7 an
ounce. Many spurious 810" and 820
United States gold pieces were turned out composed chiefly, of this metal. The coins of Great Britain were
also tampered with in the same manner,
Spanish coins have been much counterfeited, perhaps more than coins of
any other country. Even at the presr
ent lime Spain is redeeming counterfeit live-peseta pieces. These, coins
were made by private persons and
were etfjal to the regular government
coins in point of fineness and weight,
the manufacturers being satisfied witli
thc seignorage or difference between
the face value of, the coin and its
value in bullion silver.
So difficult are these illegal coins
to distinguish from the genuine that
the government has authorized, their
relemption at bullion value. It is
said that but little distinction has
been made in Spain between tho regit1-
lar issue and the counterfeits, thc
two issues, being accepted freely everywhere, and it is declared that it
is not at all unlikely that a, fair proportion of the 600,000,000 five-pscta
pieces held in reserve by the Ban'.' of
Spain is made up of the counterfeit
coins.
Some years ago when silver had n
much higher value than at prcscnti a
counterfeit ..icxican dollar came into
the possession of tlie United Slates
assayers at the. Philadelphia mint.
They assayed the coin and found it
to be worth intiinsijcally about 81.50.
It seems that the mine from which
the counterfeiters got their metal
produced silver that was strou'i in
gold. Thus thc forgers lost money if
making counterfeits.
Mr. Richard Copcland died suddenly, in Vancouver last week. Many ol
the old-timers will remember Mr.
Copcland as he worked fcr Mr. Anderson as blacksmith on the new
townsito at Wellington for three
years. Mr. Cgpeland was prominently identified with the Mount Pleasant
Methodist' Church. He leaves a widow and four daughters to mourn their
loss. ,

The steamer "Titania" arrived last,
night for a full load of coal. She
brought up 17 mules lor thc company

The Saturday Sunset, ot Vancouver,
has a long story this week ot a new
daily paper to be started in Victoria
hy J, S. Matson, and to be edited by
William Blakemme. Tho Jiaper is to
be known as thc Evening Post. Mr.
Blakemoro is a very religious gentleman, and In lils capacity «vs editor of
the new daily paper will do much to
purify Journalism in this Province.
Speaking of the requirements of an
editor ot a paper such as Is'aimed at]
hy Messrs. Matson audBlakcmore, the
Sunset says: "He must bo capable of
towering righteous rage upon occasion and it must be fully as real as
thunder and lightning, made on the
stage.   He must he a man of broad
sympathies and ever willing to extern.
| advice to feeble virtue in erring men
and women,   lie must upon ai inpm-
| cut's notice be iOlile to turn his olltce
Into a. chapel wherein he may listen
to the pendent tale of tempted and
fraii humanity—tli-c frailer the bettor." All these qualifications Mr.
Blakcmurc possesses, and man/ more.
There was an interesting casq be-
'foro Judge ll.iir.noii last Thursday.
it wi'.l be remembered that abouti
eighteen months ago Alex. Brasika
had hi., bands badly burnt in the!
mine. Since that time lie bus been
drawing 850 per iniirli from thc company. For the past two ot three
months tbe company has been iuelin- j
ed to believe tbat Air. I'raista. was;
.ajble to do light work, in] should no',
continue longer to'be a charge on the
company. Dr. Williams, who made |
an examination of; Braiska, gftve it
as his professional opinion that he.
was able to do light work, so it was
determined to discontinue the monthly payment of $50. To this- Brasika
demurred, and thc matter came up in
court last Thursday. Alter hearing
the evidence on both sides, Judge
Harrison decided that Brasika should
go so work at lamp cleaning, a job
which the company agreed to give
him. He will receive more money,
than he was getting during his lay-off
although it will be less than he earned while working in the mine.
B. and A. Teams
Will Play To-morrow
Mr. R. Marpole
Has Little to Say
Mr. H. Marpole- and Mr. 11. JO.
Beasley spent, a few hours in thc city,
last Thursday evening and a delegation consisting of Messrs. Stewart,
Dier and Nicholson and Geo, Wilson
liie'l (hem in their cur previous to
tlieii departure for Nanaimo. As a
matter of fact lhc"c:u; was held for, a
few nijnutos f-.n■• th '.piTi'iiuFc, oi discus-
Mng a few questions with Hie Latty-
sniitli ilelebajiuii. ./■
The first sjit^cet was the. matter o!
doulib 'train service, and with legaid
to this Mr. Marpole iniormed the ££■•
ea.kn that the matter was vnjei
consideration and he lelievrd woulil
be resumed within a fhort limit As
to the placing of a boat nn the run
between li:re and Vancouver, he could
say little. Capt. TrO-ip WGukl hate
to be consulted, and" in fact the .carrying out ot the proposal remained
wholly with the captain. Mr. marpole evidently thinks that liie citi-,
zens of Ladysmith should grant a
subsidy for such a, service.
As to the sale of the lands lately
cleared, Mr. Marpole sali they would
be placed on the market just as soon
as the logs were taken off. The company, he said, was anxious to get the
land oh the market, and were greatly,
disappointed at the delay caused by
the clearing.
April 4th will sec thc crack California team in action on the Sports
Grounds with the Ladysmith seniors.
The game promises to be a good one
and local sport's are looking forward
witliintci'ost for the match.,
To-morrow on the Sports Grounds
the local B and A second division
teams will meet for the first time in
thc Island h-aguc, fixtures. The game I 0i
should le a nice one, as (litre is good-
natural rivalry between these teams.
Il is impossible lo get thc line-up oi
l.ulh teams for this issue, but there
is no doubt both sides will have their
strongest men. Andy Uallstoiics will
officiate. ,
Duncan May Become

Owing to the smallpox in Nanaimo
tlie United team will play no more

Mr. Martin Uurrcll, the member $c\

the Government on record with regard to deferred elections. He has.
introdueed a resolution in the Commons declaring against deferred elcc-

election in Yale-Cariboo it is,quite
liiiily that the deferred election
worked to the disadvantage ol the

were disgusted with the- policy of thc
Government in this regard and so declared themselves at the polls.

It is quite possible that there will
have to be some slight changes in
the Kcwc: plans before cnnstructfbn
commences. It seems that the plans
as they have been prepared by Mr.
Mohun will cost too much to carry
out, and that the sum already voted
will tc inadequate to complete thc
work. This, however, will not be an
insurmountable obstacle. Thc best
available opinion seems to be that
there can be many modifications made
that will greatly reduce the cost ol
construction. While it is desirable
that operations should commence at
once, care must bo taken to have a
perfect understanding of what tiic
city is to receive for the money expended. As long as thc changes do
nut materially affect the stability and
cllleieiicy ot the work there will be
no complaint Irom any source, but
It is essential that there snould be as
little delay as possible in reaching a
definite arrangement.
The joint meeting at the city hall
next Thursday night to arrange the
preliminaries for a hospital association should be well attended. H. is
particularly desirable that thero
should be a large representation ot
ladies    at this   meeting, as n great
" portion of the woi'.c will have to be
dene by them. No doubt the ladles
of Ladysmith, UVc their sisters elsewhere, will take tiie li-ad in lhc hos-
'pltal motement.

Hew Much Timber
Have We?
How much timber is, there in Canada? A recent estimate gives six
hundred billion feet. This seems an
enormous quantity, but it would last
a \cry short time if Canada were
generally drawn upon for a timber
supply; at their present rate oi consumption the United States alone
wojld consume that quantity in
about fifteen years.
As a matter of fact few reliable
data cxfct from which it- is possible
to estimate Canada's forest resources. Even the number ot acres of tim>
her. land in this country is not known
with any decree ol accuracy, and oven
the experts disagree widely, though
they unite in placing it considerably
below former estimates.
The present is just the timo lor
Canada to "take stock" of her timber resources, not to mention her
other natural wealth. Her natural
resources have not yet been dissipated to a very large extent, and if
Canadians now secure an estimate of
thoir wealth in\ natur,4li'rcsour'ees,
they can, by ccononiical use of them,
avoU iiiuch of the waste such as other nations have made.
For many years the United States
has lavishly distributed its national
wealth. But during the past few
years thoughtful men in that nation
have 1/i'guu tu sec that they must
economize. As a result, alter lt.conference of governors of tho several
states, scientific txperts, leaders:, in
commerce and transportation and
some others, in May last, President Roosevelt appointed a "Conservation Commission" to make
a thorough investigation of the national resources contained in the forests, tho mines, the soil and thc
streams (both for^water supply and
for transportation). The commission
has since then been at work, and during the second week ot December reported , at a meeting similar to the
one preceding their appointment.
In order to afford a fair chance, for
thc .economical administration cl
Canada's forests, a similar inventory
of her timber wealth should be made.
Present ideas of tho amount of timber in the Dominion are based almost ent'xely on thc reports ol those
who have travelled along thel chief
waterways. Men who have gone in
some distance from the streams' report that the timber becomes much
smaller and more srattered as one
gets away from tho river. This . is
the cases, indeed, in all forests.
What is needed is a systematic exploration of thc whole unexplored region, (the country at a distance from,
streams as well as that along the
water-courses) by men familiar witli
the work of estimating timber. Full
and accurate' reports of such explorations will serve to clear up much
misconception regarding the extent
and amdunt of Canada's forest land,
just as the explorations made in
Northern Ontario in WOO cleared up
the ideas formerly held as to the
value of Ontario's timberland.
