ference. The United States have al -
ready Bpent a lot of money in .in
proving the Columbia river naviga -

Myresoluiions were referred to the

The scope of ibe resolutions adopted by the convention was afterwards

The convention before adjourning,
put Dr. Hamilton upon the permanent   executive   of   the convention.
The report was received with tic -
clamation and a vote of thanks.
Mr. Lyons—i consider the scheme

minds  a good  one.

Mr. Lyons- uur committees ars falling down, no reports tonight out of

Mr. Gordon—Something will have
to be done to gel inure members in

"Mount. Robson, more than 14,000
feet high, is a conspicuous landmark
This whole region is oue of picturesque beauty und as it possesses pruc-
ticully no timher or agricultural land
it might well ho considered from the
standpoint of a provincial or nat.ou
ul park, if proper provision is made
fm the development of the miuerul
possibilities which are suid to exist,
there.
"The real valloy ol tbe Prasor river begins at. Tete Jaune Cache. It
averages four or live miles iu width
to its confluence with the Bear river,
a distance of 136 miles. This nnllcy
Consists  ,.f n  series  of   bcnrhcH,      the
oil of whicli is almost uniformly of
a clayej nature. Originally it was
entirely covered with a heavy stand
of spruce, balsam, cedar, Cottonwood
and birch, but lires huve denuded
most of the valley for a distance of
ahout liftv miles from the Cache
This valley contains, in my opinion,
good opportunities tor dairying and
lhe production of hay and perhaps
oilier agricultural products.
"Below the junction of the Fraser
and the Bear rivers, the valley becomes in places ten or lifteen miles
wide. The Bear, the Willow, the
north fork of the Fraser, or Uiu Salmon, and thc Little Salmon rivers
also at different points run througb
valleys whicli are said to possess agricultural possibilities. As with the
Fraser valley, however, they are generally covered with a heavy growth
of timber, This circumstances makes
tin- immediate disposition of these
lands n difficult problem. The timber
is without douht u most valuable re
source to this region, and lbe Grand
Trunk Pacific railway will give it an
unexcelled market in Alberta. At
the same time, everything possible
should bc done to promote the agricultural development of tlle region.
The land which has been burnt over
COUld he opened for settlement as
soon as the chain surveys nre com -
pleted, which 1 expect will ba hy the
end of Ibis year. Those ureas which
licar timber running over fillOO feet to
the acre could not under the law be
sold or oflVred for pre-emption, llut
undoubtedly there are many tracts of
laud in the heavily timbered rejrions
to whicli I hnvo referred which do not
bear .10000 feot to thc acre on each
quarter section, nnd these can be
nia.le available to settlement either
by pre-emption or auction sales, if
such policy should be found to bc the
besl  in the public interest.
"In order to locate such tracts nt
the earliest possible moment ihcfor-
estiy department has already lieen iu
structed to cruise lhe whole of this
land during the present season, ho
that more detailed information on
the subject ma,\ he at hand as soon
as possible! Iu Ihe meantime the depart ment would not be justified in entertaining any applications in the
territory I hnve referred to. I can
not speak too strongly of Its immense
possibilities in    regard    to  timber.
While no detailed estimates have Ireen
made, I believe there arc easily twenty-five billion leet, of spruce, cotton-
wood, cedar, iir, lurch and balsam,
besides a va i amount of cord wood,
of poplar which will bc available for
lumber, paper pulp and wood using
industries in the watershed of the
Frasei river above the mouth ol tbe
Nacbaco, whieh empties Into the
Fraser at Fort Qeorge. As soon as
much of the land on whieh this tun
her stands can ho used for agriculture after the timher is removed, ov-
ery effort ihould be made to promote
tbe development oi tho industries
whieh will use this timber. Tn this
'■inl il is my Intention bo have ii special Investigation made by exports
into tlio iiih'h to which this timber
can he put, particularly the sprues,
birch, cottonwood  and  poplar,   and
the markets In which these products
i,hi be Sold, It is certain that if
papei   iirpulp,  hiiw,  fin nit na- or other
nulls manufacturing wood Into mai
testable products cun be located along
the line of the Grand Trunk Pacific
.ii   thin   vulley   lb,,   m-l I Iiim   will       bo
greatly helped, since the sale of the
timber from tin li lots would provide

Something should certainly be
done along the lines advocated
by Mr, R. Gordon, vice-president
of the Revelstoke Progress Club,
to encourage a more general
interest in the aims and objects
of that organization and also to
keep alive the interest of the
rank and file in the Progress
Club itself.
In our opinion the club has to
guard against certain inherent
tendencies which are constantly
mitigating against the welfare of
the organization. For instance,
the work of the club is too much
confined among the active members of thc executive, there is
becoming apparent a disposition
towards the formation of an Old
Guard on whom the work which
should be spread nut among the
general membership, is increasingly devolving; the executive
meetings are in danger of becoming a mere gathering of a
few same old faces.
In our opinion, these meetings
and all other public meetings in
Revelstoke. surfer from kick of Wash Muslins
business management. They ••' McLennan's
never commence until about half
to three-quarters of an hour after
the appointed time, and drag
wear;!;, along until a late hour in

on the west, the delegation pointed
out that tho minister of railways at
Ottawa, hail evidently misunderstood
what was said to him when he was
interviewed hy the city's representatives.
He had, on behalf ol the city, refused to approve ol the route map
submitted him unless it wns given
over the entire line. Through thc explanation thus ollered, it is therefore
probable that things will be strnigh-
tened out, and that the proposed line
will be constructed within a short
timet
Tho West Vancouver council do not
desire that uny railways entering
their municipality should do so ex
cept on the right-of-way granted to
the C.P.R, or rather on one-right-of
way only, whicli practically means
that of- the C.P.R. provided it be
built first.
Thus it appears that tho minister
of railways' decision concerning the
granting of the way ovei the entire
line, will hold good after the O.P.R,

Line Coming Through
Redistribution Bill
Ottawa, July 10—Prom the present
plans, the governmenl will introduce
and put through at the next session
of Parliament the Redistribution bill
based upon the new census. It is pro
liable that the bill, after being presented will he referred to Bpecial
committee of the House. Wheu the
last Redistribution bill wus before the
House, not a great deal of opposition
was encountered outside the committee.
Thia tune it may be different, as
the Blast will lose ten or twelve seats
to the West, and tbere is a striking
similarity iu the population of constituencies ill the list ol those liable
to lose repeesentatiou. ln the say of
which will remain, and wblcb will be
wiped out, will be a somewhat deli-
cgte task for the committee and the
House. The bill will be passed next
session beyond a doubt, as In view ol
the important, matters of policy lo
be determined the government mighl
possibly consider an election advii
able before the parliamentary term
hus expired.

cab of India."
Tbr Taxlcab of India does not run oil
