British Columbia Iron
and Steel Industry
FLASHES FROM ALL AND SUNDRY.  NEED
FOR INDUSTRY GENERALLY ADMITTED.
There is a great deal of discussion about British Columbia's coming Iron and Steel Industry, and the great
work of the Coast Range Steel Organization in making-
it possible through their association with the foremost
British Iron and Steel experts. In this gossip one finds
various phases raised, and it is on this account that we
append (be following random quotations.
().ne hears that this province is not possessed of coking coals. Experts inform us that not only is this not so,
but thai our coals make good coke—some of them equal
to Ihe best of the Appalachian coals in this respect. Recently, Mr. C. P. Hill, before the Iron Committee of the
Chamber of Commerce, Victoria, a mining engineer of
vast experience and many years' standing, made the following statement: "AS FOR COKING COALS—No. 6
SEAM AT FERNIE IS SO GOOD THAT NEITHER
IMTTSni'RG NOR GREAT BRITAIN CAN EQUAL-
IT."
In certain quarters there at one time appeared to be
some scepticism as to whether there really was an organized opposition to the development of iron and steel here.
The following extracts speak for themselves:
HON. T. H. PATULLO: "There are interests which
are trying' to oppose all efforts made by Mr. Landahl in
trying to establish an iron and steel industry and they
would like every bit of information they could get    to
assist them in thwarting them."
•       *>■
H( >N. WM, SLOAN: "Eastern and American steel
interests were antagonistic to the establishment of a steel
industry at the coast and that many people were eager to
get information about the affairs of Coast Range Steel
Limited for purposes unfriendly to this province."
Men of all shades of political opinion endorse this
work', seeing in it something greater than mere politics—
for the benefit of the people as a whole. In this connection a striking example is found in the fact that Hon. T.
I). Pattullo, before the House in Victoria, read a letter
from the Hon. II. If. Stevens, former Minister of Trade
and Comcmrce for Canada.
"The latter stated that he considered it bis duty to
render Mr. Landahl every assistance in connection with
his efforts to establish the steel industry on the coast, as
Mr. Landahl had gone into the whole question here with
the utmost care. Mr. Pattullo asserted that the Stevens'
letter showed that the British Columbia Government was
dealing with a responsible concern."
IK IN. JOHN HART: "The British Columbian Government will not be a party to any scheme which might
mean that it was a wild-cat scheme; but if ever any
thought like that rested in my mind it has disappeared
this afternoon."—Meeting with the British associates of
Coast Range Steel Limited at British Columbia House,
I .ondon.
Public men, business and professional men. Boards
of Trade aud Municipal Councils have endorsed Coast
Range Steel Limited up to the hilt. The Boards of Trade
and Councils of each of ihe following places have done
this: South Vancouver, North Vancouver, Nanaimo, New
Westminster, Port Moody.' Boards of Trade in their association groups, such as the Fraser Valley Associated
Boards of Trade and the Vancouver Island Associated'
Boards base done this; the Associated Boards of this
Province recording-a similar resolution at a recent annual
meeting. The Municipal Councils of Langlcy and Surrey
passed similar resolutions.
Ten thousand signatures of leading linns and individuals in this province have signed a petition to tin- Provincial Government to carry out their memorandum of
last year and a special group of 150 of these men form an
advisory body lo Coast Range Si eel Limited.
Individual references might be made to the statements of a great many leading British Columbians about
this industry, but we content ourselves with the following", as reported in the press after the Government policy
with regard lo Coast  Range Steel Limited was outlined.
NICOL THOMPSON: "If that is so, it is the big-
:.■■■■>  thing that has happened for this Province since the
C. P. R. built into Vancouver."
KERR ilOLLCATL: "It is the best thing that
could have happened to the Province and the city. Provided the plant is built and conducted along economical
lines, there is no shadow of a doubt that it will b< a success. We have plenty of iron and other minerals in B. C.
'I.'he suggested plant is one we have long wanted and
when the plaht is firmly established it will make this
Province one of the largest producers of iron and steel in
the world."
CHRIS SPENCER: "The establishment of an iron
aud steel plant is what we have been waiting for for a
long time, and if it can only materialize it will mean a>,
very great deal to 15. C. in genera! and Vancouver in particular. It is a very desirable thing, indeed, and T sincerely hope that the three governments will be able to
bring the negotiations to a satisfactory conclusion."
ROBERT McKEEC'It is the best thing I have heard
since 1 came to this Province. Though for a time a large
part of the product of the plant may have to be exported,
there is a splendid market for the steel aud iron all over
the world and in addition to this it will undoubtedly be a
stimulous to the building of more manufacturing" plants
in the Province. The proposal is one of the most important things which has ever happened in B. C."
P. P.. Bl'RKL, (Chairman, B. C. Branch, Canadian
Manufacturers' Association): "Other industries, in addition to iron and steel, would benefit immensely by Ihe
establishment of this plant. The coal and limestone industry would necessarily receive a strong impetus and
the plant, in addition to encouraging these industries
would well-nigh solve the unemployment problem in this
Province. There is plenty of iron in this Province and
any bona-fide undertaking which tends to develop the
mines of B. C. must be welcomed by everyone."
It is not necessary to continue along this line. These

Poultry Notes
Precautionary methods will do much
to keep birds free from disease, since
Infections gain entrance to the flock
through ihe Introduction of new birds
from infected flocks, exposure at poultry shows ,or contact with fowls
which are diseased. Infection may
also be carried to premises on Ihe
shoes of man or feet of animals.
Free-flying birds are apparently responsible for the spread of disease in
some cases. Poultry keepers should
quarantine newly procured fowls o or
show birds for two to four weeks, in
order to allow symptoms of any disease which may be carried to develop.
The greater the number of birds
kept upon any farm or plot of
ground and the more they are crowded together the greater is the danger
from contagion and parasites and the
more important are the measures of
prevention and eradication.
How   to   Control   Disease.
As a rule, when a bird become sick
the best policy is to kill it, for the
reason that it may be affected by a
contagious disease which,.before it is
recognized, may spread to many
others in the flock. Also, if the
poultry owner attempts to treat such
birds, there is great danger of carry-
lug Infection from the sick lo Ihe
healthy in handling or feeding. If a
disease becomes esablished in he Hock.
however, a line of treatment should
be undertaken when possible. In some
diseases, such as cholera and the chol
eralike diseases, fowl typhoid, tuberculosis, and aspergillosis, treatment ol
affected birds is of HI tie value and
preventative sanitary measures must |
be depended on to keep infection as
low as possible.
In controlling outbreaks of Infectious diseases the first effort should be
to separate the sick rrom the healthy
birds as soon as symptoms become
1 noticeable. The droppings should be
removed ,,1'rom Ihe houses daily and
placed where the fowls will not have
access to them. The houses and all
feeding and drinking utensils should
be frequently cleaned and disinfected.

the drinking water serves to prevent
the sphead of infection by means of
Ihe water, which otherwise is likely to
be contaminated by discharges from
diseased birds. The proportion is one-
third teaspoon of premanganate to the
gallon of drinking water. It is also
advisable lo give the entire tlock a
dose of Epsom sail In the proportion
of one-hall teaspoon to the adult
fowl. The salt, may be mixed in a
sufficient quantity of mash for one
feeding.
Disinfectants and their Application. ,
Good disinfectants destroy the
germs of contagious diseases, the ex-
ternal parasites, such as lice and mites
and in some cases the eggs of parasitic worms. The disinfectants should
be thoroughly applied to the interior
of the houses, worked into all the
cracks and crevices, spread over the
ceiling and floor, the roosts, dropping
boards, and nest boxes. At the same
lime the feeding and drinking troughs
should be disinfected by pouring boiling water into them and afterwards
drying them In the sun. Disinfect
ants are most easily applied to the
walls and c !l\igs with a spray pump
or with a brush. As it is dibcult to
keep them from coming into contact
with the face and hands, tho more
harmless of these mixtures should generally be used. Ordinarily limewash
made from freshly slaked lime is excellent, and its properties are well
known. In the case of an acLual outbreak of virulent disease it is well lo
add to the limewash 6 ounces of crude
carbolic acid to each gallon to increase
its activity as a disinfectant.

frequently used to destroy mites, may
readily be converted into a disinfectant. To make the emulsion, shave
half a pound of hard laundry soap into half a gallon of soft water and
boil the mixture until all the soap Is
dissolved, then remove it to a safe
distance from the fire and stir into
it al once, while still hot, 2 gallons of
kerosene. This makes a thick, creamy
emulsion or stock mixture. When it
is to be used for killing mites in Ihe
houses, 1 quart of this emulsion is
mixed with 10 quarts of water. When
it is lo be used as a disinfectant, stir
well, then add 1 pint of crude carbolic
acid or crude cresol, and again stir
until all is well mixed.
The compound solution of cresol is
one of the best disinfectants and may
be purchased ready for use.. It contains 50 per cent, of cresol, and 1
pint of it added lo 1(1 quarts of soft

MAN
A man weighing 150 pounds approximately contains 3500 cubic feel ot
gas. oxygen, hydrogen and nitrogen in
his    constitution,   whlcl   at  SOc    per
10 ubie  feet  would  be worlh  $2.SO
for illuminating purposes. He also
contains all the necessary fats to
make a 15 pound caudle, and thus,
with his 3500 cubic feet of gases, he
possesses great illuminating possibilities. His system contains 22 pounds
10 ounces of carbon, enough to make
7S0 dozen or 9360 lead pencils. There
is about 50 grains of iron in his blood,
and Ihe rest of his body would supply
enough to make one spike large enough to support his weight. A
healthy man contains 5-1 ounces of
phosphrous. This deadly poison would
make 800,000 matches or enough poison to kill 500 people. This, with the
two pounds of lime, makes the stiff
bones and brains. No matter how
sour he looks, he contains about 60
lumps of sugar, of Ihe ordinary cubical dimensions, aud to make the seasoning complete, one must consider
his 20 spoouseful of salt. If a man
were distilled into water he would
make 3S quarts, or more than half
his entire weight. He also contains a
great deal of starch, chloride of potash, magnesium, sulphur and hydrochloric acid in his system.
Break the shells of 1000 eggs Into

the queslIon—What Is man?
PINS
Pins are sharp little Instruments
found in cushions, hair, scarfs, school
teacher's chairs, inaccessible portions
of female clothing, and on bed-room
floors.
Pins are used to make things fast.
For instance, gamblers and their ilk
usually  wear a  flashy  stick  pin.
Some pins are of greal value, but
the most valuable pins do not perform the most valuable services, as
many a woman's garments will testify. Women find pins a competent
subslilute lor hooks and eyes. If you
do not believe that, women sprinkle
pins with wild abandon all over their
apparel, ask some of them. Do not,
however, be surprised if they show
resentment at such a pointed question.
Pins will stand a great deal, but if
pushed too far they will retaliate in
a startling manner.
Pins resemble some people; they
have a head, but it is not the sharp
end.
Pleasure is a good thing and may
nol with safety he slighted. Hut when
given first place It Is debasing and
elusive. Business Is good and demands the besl powers of most of us.
But whatever be the reward, we cannot afford to be its slaves. Fortunate
indeed is the man who can master his
desires and strike a happy medium
between business and pleasure.
Genius, thai power lhal dazzles mortal
eyes
Is  oft but  perseverance In  disguise;
Continuous effort in itself, implies, In
spite
Of countless falls, the power to rise.
Twixt failure and success, the point's
so fine,
Men sometimes know not  when they
touch the line,
As the tide goes clear out, it comes
again clear in;
In  business 'tis the wisest  men  who
win.
And oh, how oft when shades of doubt
dismay,
With little more persistence, courage,
vim,
Success    will    dawn    o'er    fortune's
cloudy rim.
Then take this honey from the bitterest cup—
There is no failure save in giving up;
No real failures, so long as one still
tries,
For seeming setbacks make the strong
man wise.
There is no defeat, in truth, save from
within,
Unless you're beaten    there,    you're^.'
sure to win.
"Wonderful indeed is the
power of the voice."
—Cicero.
The power of the voice is the
success of the telephone. It was
in the endeavour to transmit
sound that the telephone was
Invented, and the great factor of
Its development Into an article
of very common use Is that direct conversation may be carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to be sent is the reason
that the telephone promotes
friendships and intimacy, and
brings about closer relations between those In business. The
pleasure of hearing the voice

"D'ye no ken ma' name's MacGreg-

Another generous bill of high-class
vaudeville opened al the Orpheum on
Wednesday, it is headed by Harry
Stoddard and his orchestra of syncopating syniplionisls, who can do everything with a tune but lose il. They
build their musical program around a
tliumc called Hie "Streets of New
Vork," but' no matter what Ihey call
ll or how they got ll up, the audience
would call Insistently for more. Stoddard has the sort of an orchestra
which would engender a friendly feeling lor jazz in the soul of a Bach enthusiast,
Douglos LevaHt, a recent deserter
from Broadway musical shows, puts
on twenty minutes of his own particular brand of comedy, which is to say,
real comedy. Unlike many musical
comedy slars who lake a whirl in
vaudeville, he has selected his partner, Miss Ruth Mary Lockwood, with
discrimination and care.
John Giuran and "La Petite" Marguerite have a dancing act which is
beautifully arranged, and which moves
with an exactitude of rythra which is
refreshing. Marguerite is hardly entitled to be called "La Petite," but
she is so graceful she gives Ihe impression of being, so let that pass.
Giuran is considerably more than a
good dancer.
Ray Hall, Edith Ermine, and Louise
Brice present a mixture of comedy,
dancing, cycling and freak piano technique which goes over big because
the individual acts are so unusual.
Hall does strange things with a cigarette, and ends up by balling Ihe jack
on a one-wheeled bicycle. Miss Ermine—or il may be Miss Brice, they
look alike, is not to be outdone, and
proceeds to play Ihe sextette from
"Lucia" with one hand, and her left
hand at that. (It wasn't the sextette
from "Lucia," bul it was one of those
things,) Miss Brice—or maybe il was
Miss Ermine—cleans up by doubling
in a violin and whistling solo.
Probably you don't like seals except

which bespeaks great character.

Film  Version of  Famous  Novel  Ends
Engagement at Dominion Theater
Tomorrow
Once in a decade there is produced
a motion picture adaption of a great
novel that approximates the reader's
preconceived idea of whal it ought
to be.
Thai rare exception to the long list
of plcturized novels that have nickered lo failure on the screen is "If
Winter Conies" which will be shown
for ihe last time at the Dominion
Theatre tomorrow.
"If Winter Comes" as William Fox
has filmed it is Ihe book—just as A.
S. M. Hutchinson wrote it, and Percy
Marmont is Mark Sabre just as Hie
great English novelist portrayed him
in his famous novel.
This picture is without doubt one
of Ihe finest film versions of any novel
yet produced anil the producers, in
making this picture have excelled
themselves and we do not hesitate in
recommending our readers lo view
this masterpiece.
Owing to late screenings, and no

THOMAS    MEIGHAN    IS   NOT   WO-
MAN-PROOF IN "WOMAN-
PROOF"
Queer   Situation   Finely    Handled
Latest Paramount Comedy-
Drama
Is any man safe from the affections
of feminine admirers? Is the inheritance of $1,000,000 on one's wedding
day really a help to Cupid where a
nice girl is concerned? These and
other questions are answered in
Thomas Meighan's latest Paramount
star picture, "Woman-Proof," which
will be shown at the Capilol Theatre
next week. This is a story of romance
where the conditions of matrimony are
decidedly unromantic. The story was
written by George Ade, noted humorist, and the picture was directed by
Alfred E. Green.
The story is that of a civil engineer,
Tom Rockwood, played by Thomas
Melghan, whose lather made a will
stipulating that all his children must
marry before they could inherit his
huge fortune. Tom has two sisters
and a brother, all of whom soon select
mates, but Tom is loo busy directing
huge engineering projects to bother
about love. The story opens with the
brother and sisters and their prospective mates planning to induce Tom to
marry. Meanwhile, young Rockwood
accidently falls ill love, and Is on the
point of proposing marriage when
complications arise.
Milo Bleech, an unscrupulous lawyer and the executor of the Rockwood
estate, temporarily blocks Hie love romance of Tom and Louise Hallitlay,
but mailers are finally adjusted.
Bleech is defeated ami the Rockwoods
inherit the fortune. Lila Lee is the
girl and heads a strong supporting
cast.
There will be the usual added news
reel, comedy creation, and musical
offerings by the Capilol Symphony
under the leadership of Cal Winter,
and the bill promises well up as a high
class presentation.

SERGT. FLACK NOT TO
BE   RE-INSTATED
Sergt. It. .1. S. Flack, who was recently dismissed from Ihe force by
Chief of Police Grundy, will nut be
reinstated, it was decideh al a meet-
lug of ihe Police Commission on Friday night when a delegation of rale-
payers waited on the commission with
a petition of approximately 300 signatures requesting lhal Ihe sergeant be
given his former posit ion.
In the commission's report ii was
staled lhal al the lime of the reorganization in Ihe force last May, the men
were Informed thai any disloyally lo
the chief would not be tolerated, and,
as disloyally had been proved, the report continued, the commission believed thai the action of the chief was
for the betterment of the force.
Ex-Reeve W .B. Russell and Rev.
George l'ringle pointed out the war
record of Sergt. Flack, who was overseas in 1911. They also stated that it
was the first offense, and prior to that
he had a v^ry good record. He was
willing lo apologize lo Ihe chief, they
added ,and as his physical condition
would not permit of his engaging in
any heavy work, it would be appreciated if the commission would rein-
stale him.
In reaffirming their approval of the
chief's action, the commissioners slated that Ihey could not see their way
clear to amend the instruction given
to the men al the time of Chief
Grundy's appointment.

MAN
Fair. 5020
Every man is Ihe image of his
thoughts. "As a man thinketh in his
heart so is he." Therefore he should
see that his thoughts are clean and
pure. For the secret of hidden motives cannot be concealed, they are read
by the trained observer who penetrates alike the screen of deception and
the veil of feigned innocence.
Man cannot pretend successfully, he
must be, not appear, his growth and
development depend upon what heed
he gives to the "still small voice within." And happy will he be, indeed, if
he shall understand that nothing is
losi while honor and faith remain,
and that there is only one failure in
life possible, and that is not to be true
to the best one knows,
For he gets from life that which he
puts Into it. It measures back to him
accordingly. Therefore if he would
have his life valuable not only to himself but to all with wliom he conies in
contact, he must persevere in spiritual
development. Then after the consciousness become quickened by the
spirit of truth within lie sees the value
of living a true and honorable life.
Aud as he unfolds he becomes aware
that ihere is something a little deeper,
something a little higher, than just the
physical. He then experiences peace
and serenity hitherto unknown to
him.
The birds will sing With greater
gladness, the flowers seem lo bloom
more profusely—all nature rejoices
wiih liiiu and a thousand unseen
hands reach down to guide him along
the path of truth and righteousness.

"THE BEST  POSSIBLE"

Plowing Excavating Teaming
EXCEPTIONAL
"Bllggins has two very exceptional
children."
"In what respect?"
"His boy doesn't want to be an
aviator and his girl has never mentioned a desire to go to Europe as a
nurse."
"THE   WAYS"
Hut to every man here openelh
A way, and ways and a way,
And   the  high   soul   climbs  the  high
way.
And the low soul gropes the low;
And In between, on the misty Hals,
The rest drift to and fro,
But lo every man there openelh
A high way and a low,
And every man decldeth
The way his soul shall go.
SULTING   HIM
Official at Herald's College—You'll
want a coat of arms, sir, of course.
New Knight—Coat! Put me down
for the 'ole suit—I can afford It. .^»

Huge Market for
Iron and Steel Products
Official .statistics show that the demand for
iron and steel products in liritish Coliimbia
is sufficient to justify the establishment of a
Wast  furnace here.
British Columbia imports 649 Tons Daily
Alberta     imports 141 Tons Daily
Saskatchewan   .. imports 256 Tons Daily
Manitoba    imports 621 Tons Daily
Total    1.669
These figures represent imports from foreign
countries only, and to them must be added
the consumption of Eastern Canadian iron
and steel products, which is estimated to be
double the above amount. The Orient is just
entering its iron age. China's teeming millions will become the world's great market
for pig iron within the next decade.
Japan imports about 800,000 tons of iron and
steel annually, and t will continue to
import an ever-increasing tonnage, the native
iron being of very low grade.
Railway development in Peru, Chili and Argentine is creating a huge demand for iron
there, every ton of which must be imported.

IRON ORE
British Columbia
Has Within 100 Miles of
a Score of Sites Available
Government engineers report tremendous bodies of the finest grade of magnetite ores in British Columbia, such as are smelted in 500-ton furnaces of the
Bethlehem Works and a score of other furnaces all over the world.
l'n one body alone over 25.000,000 tons of magnetite ore is in SIGHT, from
which pig iron has been reduced in quantity lots under the personal supervision
of experts, as cheaply as from the softest  hematite.
COOKING COAL ^ear'y 6°% '" tnc estimated tonnage of coal ol all ranks on the North Ameri-
———————— can Continent is located in Western Canada, many of these being coking coals
comparable  with  the  best  coking coals of the Appalachian region.
British coking firms consider that B. C. has available the greatest tonnage of
coking coal  occurring anywhere in  the world.

FLUXES -
Limestone Fluxes in Abundance.
Pig Iron can be produced in British Columbia
at $15 a ton and under. (Pittsburg cost is $19.)
Grasp the fact that four-fifths of the world's population is
in the countries shown on the above map, then consider
the potentialities of the iron industry on the Pacific.
The British Iron and Steel Masters realize British Columbia's strategic importance on the Pacific, and, through the
medium of the Coast Range Steel Company, plan to develop
the iron industry here as an Empire proposition.
They will furnish $15,000,000 for this work, and ask the
people of British Columbia, through its Government, to become financially responsible for $4,000,000 of this amount
during the period required for the building of this Industry.
WHO IS KEEPING THE
STEEL INDUSTRY OUT
of BRITISH COLUMBIA?
Iron Industry Will
Make British Columbia
a Manufacturing Center
Immediately pig iron is produced here, huge manufacturing plants will spring up. At, present tho entire Western half of this Continent mid the huge
Oriental market is supplied from Eastern U.S. plant*.
Iron production is tho basic industry. Every article
in use requires iron in its manufacture, and with the
low cost of production due to the compact grouping
of supplies of raw materials here, manufacturers already established in Eastern points will be forced by
competition to set up plants on this coast.
Indeed, the advantages that British Columbia offers
by producing pig iron at tide water, will make it
more profitable for them to develop their plants here.
$100,000,000 of new taxable property will be created
within six months of the establishment of this Industry, and $]00,000.000 will he invested in kindred industries, which cannot locate in liritish Columbia now
■without pig iron.
Everybody is FOR an iron and steel
industry—YET, to date, every definite concrete proposal to commence
one has been KILLED-WHY?
