Chief Parry's Boarding House
Will be One of the First
Places Visited Here.
Early tomorrow morning the counting of noses will commence all over
Canada, and tlie specially selected
bunch in this district, comprising ol
D.M. Rae, F. W. Laing, J.J. Porter,
Gus I.und and H. Cunningham Morris
will be on their rounds. According
lo special census instructions, jails,
and penetentiarii'S must be enumerated ou June 1st, so for one certain
sure thing Chief Parry's boarding
house will bc one ot the tirst places
visited tomorrow. As far as this
city is concerned the two enuroerat -
ors with whom the citizens will have
to deal arc F. W. Laing and D, M.
Rae—the former taking all ttie city
east of McKenzie and the hitter all
west of the same avenue. Iu this
connection it would bo well for the
heads of households to instruct their
women fdlks as to what answers are
to lie given to the various question's
propounded. As must be expected
the census enumerators will perforce
have to call at a large number of
places while 'the men are at work,
and unless the women folks arc given
the necessary information to impart
to tho enumerators a second call will
be necessary and will entail considerable extra work to tbe men engaged
iu getting at the tigures. As men -
tioned in these pages before all information given is considered sacred
and will be imparted to no one but
the proper authorities, so that there
need be no hesitation in answering
any question asked. A penalty is
provided for any infraction of this
decree and a penalty is also pro -
vided for persons refusing to give
the necessary information.
Every man, woman and child living
in Canada at midnight tonight will
he counted if the two or three hundred commissioners and their armies
of enumerators do what is required
01 them. Some will inevitably be
missed, but the will be good
enough to give the Dominion ol Can
ada a population ol eight millions or
thereabouts, and to give three quarters of a million people in the West
will mean twenty additional members  to  the Dominion  parliament.
Big gains are looked for in thc
prairie provinces, hut the province of
Quebec is making conlident predictions. Quebec has a way ot bobbing
up after each count with the most
surprising total. II the Quebec increase is as good as the Quebec people say it is then the unit of parliamentary representation will be bigger
and will get less than it is expecting.
Census takers will follow what is
known as the dc jure system of enum
eration. They will collect practically
all of their (acts with the conditions
of June as a ba.-is. A baby born
on May 31st will be counted. An old
man who dies ou June 1st will be
The count begins tomorrow and
goes on trom day to day till the
eud, but census enumerators are forbidden to do auy counting on Sunday. Commissioners generally get a
cent a name for correspondence, etc.,
and lor other duties, travelling expenses, special allowances is provided
The enumerators generally get flve
cents lor every living person counted
and ten cent* (or every death or disability. For a five-acre (arm be
gets twenty-five cents, for a farm of
one to five acres fifteen cents und
for less than an acre len cents. In
this district the enumerators have
chosen in lieu ol this remuneration a
straight salary of $5 per day.
Factories, churches, Sunday schools
charitable institutions, etc., are
worth a quarter each, but a mine or
quarry ia worth half a dollar. Allowances tor expenses are also based
upon work done.
To pay lor horse hire in the rural
districts, thc enumerators will get
three dollars per one hundred names
in Ontario and tbe east, four dollars
in the prairie provinces and twelve
dollars in British Columbia.
In 1901 the count showed a population ol 5,371,315.

Rumor that same will be Moved
to Kamloops—Board of Trade
and Timber Men Protest
Unless the Dominion government
lives the matter the due consideration that is becoming such a move,
Uevelstoke is to^lose its Crown Tim-
1 er ollice in the' ear future. . Out's ide of a lew of the leading spirits of
the Liberal organization nothing was
i nown of this intention ot the De-
i artment of the Interior to move
this office to Kamloops until lasl
Monday when purely by accident Mr.
O. S. MeCarter became cognizant of
the fact.
Mr. MeCarter immediately got busy
and found out thut there had been
sume little correspondence Irom the
Iepartment in ques-tion with a view
to amalgamating the Crown Timber
office here with the Laud office at
i'.amloops, and that it was almost
i xpected that the office had already
I een moved to that point.
Realizing the extreme inconvenience such a move would occasion th-a
local lumber firms and the gross injustice that would be done thew
enterprises the Board of Trade immediately got busy and met in spoc-
ial  session  at the city hall.
"It is most extraordinary that
such action should he lakcu by Mr.
Frank Oliver," said some of the mem
Iers, "and we can't let this matter
drop without sending in a strong
protest.1' Accordingly a motion was
passed Iiy the board appointing u
(immittee to draft a telegram protesting most strenuously against
i,uch action of tho government. The
. ommittee met later and the following wire was sent to the Minister of
Hie Interior:
May 2'Jth, 1911,
Honorable Frank Oliver,
Minister uf Interior, Ottawa,
Hevelstoke Board of Trade having
learned your intention to remove
Crown Timber ofllce to KamloopH,
respectively urge thnt the ofllce remain here, this being tho place where

\oilently transacted. Citizens and
lumber companies arc unanimous In
opposing tho removal. Please delay action until all interested can be

Number Has Been Considerably
Increased-Efforts Will Be
Made to Prevent Fires
The liro wardens in this division of
DiBtrict Five were announced yesterday by Mr. Allcrdalc tiraingor, of
Victoria, a member of the new provincial forest fire commission, who
was a visitor to lhc city on government business. Tbe liBt is as fol-'

Baird, Nakusp; R. B. Allen, New
Denver; J. M. Farrell, Hlocan; Vi.

Glover, Galena; J. McCoskrie, Atlrlc-
rncr Enst; B. Bogardus, Athlemer
West and Sinclair Craig, Windermere
Tho number of fire wardens has
hecn considerably increased and Mr.
Grainger, who was accompanied hy
W. H. McGregor, his assistant in tho
work of the government, described
tho steps which huve led thc provincial government to appoint the forest
(ire commission  as 'follows:
"Though the government doubled
the number of its wardens, hired regiments of men to tight forest fires,
and spent $187,000, the enormous
damage done to the timher resources
of tbe province last summer convinced the government that still more
vigorous action wus necessary. Hence
one of the first problems that confronted the Hon. W. R. Ross when
he became minister of lunds last
winter was the reorganizatiou ol tho
tiro lighting, or rather fire preventing
force," said Mr. Grainger.
"The law that gives its weak pro-1
tection to the forests ol this country i
wns passed 15 years ago. Though
Bome valuable amendments have lieon
made to it during the last lew sessions this hush tire act is still, in
its general scope, a relic from the
times when forest protection was
looked upon by the public and by legislators as impracticable and even
unnecessary. The western states
and several of the provinces ol Can
ada arc in advance ol British Columbia as far a6 legislation is concerned.
Soon after taking his portfolio Mr.
Kosb proceeded, therefore, to draft
a bill to supersede the present hush '
fire act. !
"For two reason,  howev-r,  it  wns
docided  to  postpone  thc  pnssuge    ol
this bill to next year's session. Firstly,     any     legislation on thc Biibject
must of necessity be drastic and thc
house this year     had already      too j
much work to do to spare thc great
amount ot time  that the hammering '
out ol such  legislation requires   Sec-1
ondly, the government has in      view
thc introduction of a general   lumber
forestry  bill  next session and a new ,
hush fire act could hest bc considered
"No such delay wns possible in the
reorganization of the forest protec -
tion service, and during the winter
and spring Mr. Ross was engaged upon plans lor this. As a result the
numlier ol fire wardens has agaiu
been doubled, a net-work of patrols
will protect thu dangerous districts
in a fur more effective way than ever
belore; the number of divisional inspectors has been greatly increased,
so that the work ol the wardens ran
he vigilantly supervised; and u commission ol throe has been appointed
to take charge ol tbc whole organisation under the direct control of the
minister of lands.

large transportation interests in
Montreal are questioning one another
as to the meaning of certain clauses
which appear in bills presented to
the United States House of Representative- recently. They fear that
they are aimed against them and
are worded with n view to seeing to
it that Canadian transportation interests do nol benefit as a result ol
any increased traffic between Canada
nnd the United States. liill 4660
which was introduced in the House
of Representatives by Mr. Utieker of
Colorado, contains the following
"Every vessel not of thc United
States that shall arrive direct from
ber own country, its colony, or pos
session, ln ballast or with merchandise produced there, or with pnsseu-
gers in a less proportion thnn one
third of her burden capacity, for
freight or passengers as aforesaid,
shall pay a duty on the gross measurement in addition to the regular
duty imposed hy law ns follows: —
On all vessels not exceeding 2,MM)
tons, 10 cents per ton; not exceeding
2,400 tons, 25 cents per ton; between 4,000 and 8,000 tons, 50 cents
a ton; between 8,000 and 12,(100 tons,
75 cents a ton; between 12,000 and
111,0011 tons, Ifi a ton; between 16,000
and 20,000 Ions, $1.25 a ton; exceeding 20,000 tons,  $1.25 a ton."
This is taken as a direct slap at
Canadian coastwise shipping, and
particularly at the boats ol the Canadian I'acilic, now doing so profitable a trade between Vancouver, Seattle and Alaska, It also hits at
tho ocean service, present or prospective, which may be run between
Halifax and the West. Indies, and at
Uritish bottoms, plying along the
Atlantic coast from Yarmouth, Hall-
fax or Bt. John's to Boston, Portland, or other American  ports.
