they  creato    £S,0()0   d bentures
chargeable   on   all    the company's
land-, plant, etc. These debentures wore taken up by the directors, who as promoters held lii-:j>n
of tho stock. Ah a further cinch
ili.r.-is a clause in the mortgage
to the - ffect that if tho company
-hould fail or th" mill dose down
the debenture holders were entitled

wa- created onJJuly 22nd, 1904, and
registered    ill     Nel.-' .11     on     ItlgUSl

the express purpose f swindling

and one ealc.ll.it  d to  BCpOp all the
■Ui kors In     ighi      Now   for   my
connection with the Canadian
Timber and Saw MilU Ltd.
In October, 1908. the company's
manager, .Mr. II. rj lerson, duly ad
■d both here and at .'■
calling for tenders for a log
tract. 1 dil not I.id at that time
bul a little later outline,1 a propo-
rition to Mr. Hen lers n to do the
Company's logging, tho price to he
$4.50 | ei ti. iu 'ana, ,h. Ing thi I iw-
.■ it tender.
My proposition was as follows:
That I would cut in a steam plant
sufficiently large to keep their mill
supplied, and would      "       to p ll
in 100,000,000 feet at 14.60 , r
thousand on  the   condition  that
they I..moi themselves to take at
[east 15,000,000 feel during the
first two y. ar-. ;.' er n hioh they
were to take  10,000,000 per year
After the see "iid year, if for any
n -on tic >• impany became un-
i.blc to tak    that   amount, Ihey
Were U> pay III" any dan,
could sit iw 1 had been put to
About October ".Joth this proposition was submitted through Mr
Henderson to Mr. Ward at the
London office, a .! on I ho 13 li
Nov. I received a, messastfiy '■'
Henderson   thai   it   had  been

the papers I requested Mr. Hen-
1< i n io show me his authority t •

produced a cable from I.

pits," (tho official codo signature
of the Company).     11-' also   pr
Ward us a clerical i rroi but I have
always be n undi e the impression
thai it was meant to deceive.
The cablo also said, ''directors
leaving for Ll. C. at once." This
wa I prior to .July 17th and to my
certain knowledge the London
office knew tho Bbnpe things were
in at thai time, yet on the 22nd
July just prior to their leaving
Loudon they ox- cute this deben-
tuie mortgage an I bring itout and
register it in Nelson on August ,.„.,,,
12th or thereabout, showing that|'UM(|
instructions were   to Like it by lot
aid blrck, and iii consequence th
land that Mm mill is on   was pi-,.;
ol up.    T.iis is a fair example of
ilie business ability of Mr. Ward
and Ms advisor.-.
As a further example of the
ability of the persona just referred
to, tho mill was built aerws Victoria street withflut that said

Now that the election excitement
is over, local affairs should be
looked into, The school building
js about completed, so if ire are '.o
have the educational facilities to
which we are entitled, no time
should be lost in putting our
claims before the educational
authorities. An extra timber is
needed badly, and we feel sati-ti sj
that   the   average   attendance   at

those unacquainted with the situation the Impression that the lumber
Industry in this district is not in a
flourishing condition, and that the
business! is not a pood one. There
js no doubt, however, had these
propositions been run on u business-
like basis that both would have
been good paying investments.
This is instanced conclusively in
flie case of the Trout Lake mill,
v.hose owners wore offered by one 1
of the largest lumbering eon© rns

profit. Other leading mill men
who have gone over both propositions stat" that with conservative
management there were no letter
opportunities for making money on
the continent. The trouble is not
with the propositions, but thi way
}n which they have been conduced.
