Foresees Population of Million
a Decade Hence—Presents
Figures of Wealth Product-
tion of B. C.
I'mpiiecyiiij! a population nl a million for British Columbia within len
years, and announcing thnt the wealth
production ul the province during the
past year was uver |60,000,l'00, Hun.
It G, Tallow, provincial minister ol
finance, bus issued a statement in
which be details the remarkable progress ninde by Ibe province in tbe
twelve months which closed With  Ibe
liscil year. Speaking to the Victoria
Times,Capt Tatlow said:
"I um satisfied that every Industry
in British Columbin is only in iln
infancy We have Inresls illimitable
fur liuni,ei, laml in millions ol acres
for agriculture and the seven thousand miles of shore lino uro washed by
seaB teeming with lish.
"To- comprehend the" future ono
must study the past. In order tn du
this with some correctness I bud
statistics prepared covering the past
linuiiciiil year and wns surprised at the
splendid showing. The total production ol the province lor the year ending June DOtb, was ovor 150,(100,000.
As the population is iu the vicinity nf
200,000 including Indians, Mongolians,
women and children I think it suit- Iu
say the tntnl number ol able budied
ivbite men is nut mure tlinn one-fifth
ul this, or 40.000. Dividing the total
value uf provincial products, by this
number it appears that fur every white
man there ivus produced considerably
over f 1,0011 during the past year. I
do not think any place in the world
can equal this.
"Details nl this production Bhould
be of public interest. Taking, lirst,
the lumber industry the actual receipts
were slightly over the estimate 1 gave
at the end of June. 'Ihe actual revenue from this source was $508,000 or
wil bin a fraction of double tbe estimate which wns IfllHo.OOO, In value the
lumber cut exceeded all expectations.
As closely as I cuu uscerttiin it readied
over "17,500,000. And, best of all, it
wus manufactured in tbe province.
The government did not reap all the
benefit derived from the forests ns
would have been largely the case if
export in a virgin state were permitted.
Probably half ol this large sum went
into the pockets ol the thousands ol
workmen employed in the industry.
"As you know in 1905 tbe mineral
output of the province was $28,461,325.
This was an extremely high figure lor
un industry only n lew yeans old to
reach and the most satisfactory feature
about it is that practically all was not
only mined but smelted here. There
are now eleven smelters and one refinery in active operation with a combined capacity ol 7,500 tons r. day,
and very little goes out of the province
in the form ol ore. Should at any
time an inclination be apparent to
ship much mineral Irom British
Columbia belore smelting, I should be
in lavor ol a similar course to that
taken regarding lumber and prohibit
such exportation.
"Agriculture also advanced in common with every other line ol work
during the pust year. Tliis province
lias always been a great purchaser up
till the present, but nuw the tide bus
turned, The most promising (nature,
I think, regarding this industry is the
fact that our imports ol tliis character
are decreasing rapidly. Lust yenr the
produce of provincial farms and orchards reached the sum of $0,500,000,
and there was a decrease hi tlie value
of such goods brought in ol $500,000.
If this rate is continued in a short
time local produce will lully supply
local markets. Mixed farming has
done much to even things up. There
are splendid opportunities Ior this in
many sections ol tlie province. The
best evidence of tliis is the fact that
we exported butter, eggs, poultry uud
cheese to the value of nearly $2,000,000.
"Horticulture is rapidly coining to
the front. It is becoming one of our
most important industries. The grout
success obtained at exhibitions; such
as those in London and Winnipeg,
will not be ephemeral; It is a sign oi
actual growth. In 181)1 the acreage
under Iruit wub 11,500; ten years later
it hnd reached 7,51X1, but advancement
has since been phenomenal. -. A year
ngo there were 22,000 acres cultivated
hy orchurdist and Iruit growers, and I
lully believe that liy the ond ol 1900,
there will be 40,000 acres used in this
"In time tlie growth ol local nurseries will take tlie place of imported
stuck, but I may mention that already,
during the present season, the provincial inspector has examined 1,250,
000 trees. At present tbo growth of
nursery stock is small, but next
season should see 750,000 local trees
placed on the market and the follow
ing year 1,600,000. I n n, low years we
will commence tn export,
"Fishing ol course has long been an
important item in the commerce ol
tbe province, but even this industiy
shows signs of great expansion. Improved methods nl catching mil	
will certainly enlarge the amount
canned, but I refer piirticulurly tu the
new factors recently introduced, for
instance, (he Niimiiuiu herring fisheries are dev( lulling with great rapidity, and 1 expect in llie near luture
to see similar Institutions started at
other points. The oyster trallic is
only iu an experimental stage, but I
sec no reason that it should nut bo-
come   important.     And,  although

8ATURDAY, JULY 28, 1906
Startling as they are gratifying, are
the tacts and statistical data announced by the Hon. R. G. Tatlow, Provincial Minister of Finance lor our great
western province, and the rigor and
optimism with whicli they are couched are calculated to attract universal
attention. Capt. Tatlow states that
the Province, last year, produced over
11000 for every able bodied man in B.
C, and tlie grand total of wealth production was approxima'ely $50,000,000.
TheBe figures i idicate the vast progress the residents ol B. C. have made
and the wonderful energy brought to
bear upon the development ol the
tremendous natural resources ol the
country. It is a grand, soul-stirring
problem, as to what brilliant result
tbe near future will show. If the
comparatively small population of Ihe
present day can produce $50,000,000
ol tangible and productive wealth,
what will be the result at some future
time when the vacant lands ol this
year are fully developed, when the
earth has yielded her treasures to the
science ol the miner, and the virgin
forests to the skill of the forester.
The mind, carried away by such elori-
oub possibilities, dreams ol a decade or
two hence which, according to Capt.
Tatlow's statements, Bhould see over a
million people happily settled in this
Garden Province. British Columbia
possesses a large purtion ol the individual resources of each ol her sister
provinces. Her mines are almost
inexhaustible, her virgin forests limitless, her agricultural wealth boundless, and her beautiful lakes and
extensive seaboard yield a most valuable return. Enthusiasm runs high
in the contemplation of such vast
treasures, needing, only, the skilful
band of man to put each tu its use.
The tide of population ib rising and
bearing its living freight over the
barriers of the Rockies tu this fair
Province where Nature in sll her
beauty is waiting to give up her
treasures to those who would seek
Standing on the C. P, R. platform

sees Mount Burgess rise abruptly Irom
the valley ol the Kicking Horse River.
Westward Irom the mountain runs
the beautilul valley through which the
north branch of the Wapta River
flowi, and through which is cut that
beautiful park road leading to Emerald Lake. To tbe north and close to
the base lies sheltered the blue-green
waters ol Emerald Lake, while further
to the north lie the blue-green glaciers
which leed the lake. To the eaat at
the base lies Burgess Pass beyond
which rises the summits of Mounts
Wapta and Field. Mount Burgi
rises 8600 feet above the sea, and is
noted for its rugged and precipitous
heights, but especially for the marvellous panoramic view one gets fr in the
summit, It is named after Mr. Burgess an official of the C. P. R.

III rough n densely wo ded region
where tall tree and heavy shade keep
company, where the lluwers bluoiu and
the birds sing, and where nature coiiicb
home to the observer in her quieter
mood. Soon we emerge Irom this
forest region and are wending our way
along the flank ol Mt. Wapta. Away
lo the westward are the nigged heights
ul Mts. Taipit, McMullen, etc., with
llieir green glaciers reaching downward to the valley, and from which
many beautiful streams and water
falls are flowing into the valley over
2500 Ieet below us. Through the valt
ley these white foaming streams are
flowing in all directions seeking the
Emerald Lake which lies in peaceful
tranquility at the base of the big hill.
Up at our left eastward rise the battlements of Mt. Wapta, 3000 Ieet
above us, while onward we go following
our pack trail through the undulut
ing Alps thickly covered with white
and purple heather, Now it rains and
we are wet to the skin, now the sun
shines and we are dry again, now the
guide takes his little cup from his
puck and gives us a drink from a
mountain stream, and now at the base
of Mt. Burgess he takes his pack irom
his back, gives us a sandwich, bidding
us eat and rest for our real work is
now ahead of ub.
There are more ways than one loading to the heights ol Mt. Burgess, and
the climb from Field on the south side
of the mountain has nothing in com
mon with the climb Irn.u the summit
of Burgess Pass up the north east face
of the mountain, None of our party
had ever been up this mount, not even
our guide, but as we were out lor mountaineering our guide decided to take
us up this latter and more rugged
route. As we sit resting and eating
our sandwich, our eyes are cast far
above us, the spires, minarets and
great precipices tower above ue and
frown upon ue as though bidding defiance to our puny arms and epindley
legs. One says, "I don't believe we'll
ever get up here." and another answers, "We'll go where the guide takes
us." Silently we make our way upward, for some time in single tile over
loose shale, rough boulders, and steep
inclines, when some one breaks tin-
silence asking, "Will it get any worse
than this?" at which the guide looks
round and smiles. The guide now
calls halt again and taking the coil of
rope Irom his shoulder begins lo rope
the party together. A peculiar thrilling sensation passes through the
breast ol one who for the lirst time in
his life is lieing roped fur mountain
climbing. First tbe guide hastens tbe
rnpe around his own waist, then at
intervals ol eight ur ten leet the lour
ladies are also roped around their
waists. The guide now asks who ol
tbe remaining gentlemen have experience in climbing, and finding we are
all "green" puts the rnpe around Rev.
J. R. Robertson, whose only qualification was that be was "strong." Then
the guide leading and the "anchor"
following and the ladies between we
again proceed in single tile rope procession. We seem to lie getting high
up and matters ure interesting. Our
right shoulders are rubbing against
the great rock wall that rises hundreds ol Ieet straight above us. our feet
are picking the steps one by one over
the rotten shale and rugged rocks beside the great stone wall, while far
liebw us stretch the pass and valley
in exquisite Iwnuty.
Presently a heavy shower of rain
comes uver us and coining to a great
overhanging rock we sit down in shelter lieneath il. the camera is produced
und ' our pictures are took." Tbe
ibowet is passed and we Im.lt alxive.
Tbe great heights seem just as (ar
above us and some one asks the guide
if he thinks we will ever get up. He
smilca and says, "0, I guess so." Onward and upward we go till we come
to a suowbunk cave into which ive go.
Again the camera is culled to service.
Here also the guide produces bis little
cup and the little drippling stream
(rom the snow bank provides 11 cool
refreshing drink. But now where can
we go?    We seem to be blocked Irom

rock just a I w inches wide with the
precipitous heights riling sheer above
him and a sheer drop lar below him.
We drew back and said nothing, in a
few moments he nas back to us saying
"we can go this way."   We said nothing but meekly followed.   Now we go
slowly, very slowly, placing our Ieet in
the footsteps ol our guide.  We are
now upou the narrow ledge, holding
our breath, hugging tlie cold rock wall,
trying not to look  into the dizzy
depths below.    Now we are salely
round this ledge and we stop lor a
moment's rest.    We look abend and
there is worse to see.   Now there is a
slight murmur, some would like to
turn back, some wish they had not
come.   They nppeal to the guide who
smiles" and says "I would like io
Uke you up all right."  They appea'
to the "anchor" who says, "We can go
where tha guide leads us, and this rope
will be our salety even though we
■hould slip."   Forward therefore we go
again.    We rise over almost a sheer
boulder with little notches in the rock
two or three  in-lies where we can
simply grip with our toes, but the
guide has a tight rope ahead and the
"anchor" watches every movement ol
those ahead.    But » here ate we now?
The guide looks at the -'anchor" and
smiles,   "Come" he says, and he leads
the fair lady over another ledge.  As
this ledge ii reen  there is a look of
diimay.   Here ii a narrow ledge turn
ing round a precipitoui corner. Above
ui are uill the towering pinacles,
behind us are the rugged crags over
which we have come.    At our right
band itretching far below is a great
decline reaching probably 1000 (eet
and descending at an angle of 80 or 90
degrees.    At our lelt.we look down a
sheer perpendicular precipice of probably 1000 (eet the sight of whioh was
like to make the head swim and the
heart faint.    Away up on the dizzy
height ol this ledge we crawled inch by
inch not only with hands and feet but
with all our body.    Now there are
whiiperings, "This is awful," "Thil ii
frightful," "This ii not right."  Tbe
voice ol the "anchor" calls "Look up"
and Ihe guide says "very good." When
all are salely over this dizzy ledge we
find a place to sit down and reit. Protest! again arise and they are now
more decided,   Some say, "We will go
no farther."   Others say, "Let's take
a vote on the matter."  Others say,
' No guide should take 'green'climbers up a mountain like this.'  An
appeal is now made to the guide asking
il he will not turn back but he smiles
and says "I was sent to take you to
tbe top ol this mountain and I would
like to do it."    Finally an appeal is
made to tbe "anchor" to try and get
the guide to turn back, but the anchor
answers, "If we go back to camp tonight without climbing ihis mountain
the camp will laugh at in and we
will never have courage again to try
another mountain.  We have the belt
guide of the Camp and he will not
take us where we cannot go.  Plucking up our courage we got to our feet
again and off we went tor the summit.
We did not know, nor did the guide
himself know, that we had already
passed the worst of the climbing. Our
only other thrilling experience waa in
passing up through a narrow chimney
in the rock where we bad to contend
with snow and ice and a grade ol
about 66 degrees.    This was safely
passed through and the rest oi the
way to the summit was comparatively
easy climbing.
We were highly rewarded (or our
thrilling experience. Not only did we
lee like victors on the heights, but the
panoramic view as it lay before ui was
its own best reward. We stood 8,600
feet above the level of the sea. We
were in the clouds. At one moment
we were enveloped and blinded in the
dense while darkness, at another the
heavens would break upon us in their
depth of blue-green light, Now for a
few moments neither height nor depth,
neither mount nor valley, neither
river nor lake could be seen, for all the
earth around us was hidden by the
mist and clouds, while from zenith to
horizon the deep blue sky shone clear
above ui. We were above tbe clouds
Then again, ai if by magic, tbe clouds
would rise and the mist disappear.
Far below in a great cloud of mist
riling (rom Emerald Lake up the precipitoui north face of the mount. It
rises higher and higher and is like to
again shroud us in white darkness
when it is caught by a swift current of
air around the mountain ledges and
it is hurled into confusion and sent
scuddiug across the lower peaks like a
blizzard storm of snow in wild glee.
In the midit of this changing scene ol
cloud and iky in quick succession
conies the panoramic view of snow
capped peaks and wooded valleys, of
rivers, lakes and waterfalls. To the
nortb Mt. Stephen rites in great dignity while at its leet is tbe beautiful
town ol Field, the upper stretches of
the Kicking Horse River, and a train
ii coming through the Past. To the
eait in the far distance ii the towering
range of the mighty Selkirk*, nearer
ii the valley of the Upper Wapta
itretching northward, while nearer
■till ii the park valley at tbe base:
"III Bplandi sloping dock tbe mountain aids,
Woodi oTor modi in tar tbsatrlc pride."
To the north are the peaks ol Mti.
McMullen, President, Vice-President,
etc., where blue-green glaciers are
pressing to the valley snd where many
waterfalli come down to replenish the
Emerald Lake below. Away to the
north-eait over tbe Summit Pais
when our camp Ilea we get our first
view of the beautiful Takakksw Falls
tumbling over their great heights,
while close to ui on the east juit over
tbe Pass are the friendly Mti. Wapta
and Field. In the midst ol this "venerable grandeur" we leaned our souls
for an hour and ate our sandwich
lunch. We built our "cairn" then
said adieu.
At camp that night none were hap
£iertbau theviotonof the Burgess
lights, but while they slept they
dreamed ol overhanging cliff's and
great precipitous ledges, And alter
the Yoho Camp listened to the narrative ol our climb none others had the
will or with to acile that mount.-J.fi,

Jardinieres of solid colore are In favor

The self-toned colors have not. however, entirely crowded from favor tha

difficult lo upset.

Rompers and overalls and play

that is fatal lo pretty dresses,

THE  prettiest  summer  skirts  are
those embroidered and luce trimmed in designs that echo die
trimming   ut   Imih   blouse   and
Tlie embroidery is usually kepi down
toward the hem, und. as usually, lakes
one uf twu forms, either tt sort of band
im, which runs uround ihe hem uf
skirt nr Hi'iiiK'i" (perhaps repeated on
llie skirl al Ilu iup of the flounce), ur
a panel-like design, which maj be applied in tin- iiinn- ni eftch gun* rn- on
the seams between the gores, or repented ni Intervals uround a skirt cut practically without gores—more of a circular sbupe, which makes it like the
extiulslte hand-embroidered robes thut
Paris si mis over.
l-'aiii'i' iu.ivy or light linen is used as a
foundation—the heavier grades often-
suits; ihe lighter, liner kinds,
with handkerchief linen ln the lead, for
dresses, although three-piece costumes
vary irom this rule, and Imve bolero
and skirl of heavier linen, with a blouse
. i'clui-1 linen or batiste.
'ilc pattern given may be embroidered in a number of ways. Where the
parallel lines are stamped narrow lace
may be set in. Uie design itself winding In nnd oul <u the lace, even crossing where the lace naturally interrupts
tlie design. Or, if the dress is to be
made up without any lace, the parallel
lines may be omitted, ur embroidered
In any stitch from outlining to
Batin stitch, ur with u heavv outlining
filled ni willi su'il-slitch.
The llowers and leaves may be done
in eyelet, sulid or shadow wurk, solid
work gaining a little in popularity uver
eyelet wurk. which for so long lias b<ld
first place with everybody whu was nut
fascinated with tin- quickly got effectiveness uf shadow work.
Perhaps the prettiest way of all Is to
do the flowers in eyelet stitch and the
leavs solid.
If repeating ihe pattern in eacfl gore
Is niorc work than yuu care to put upon
the skirt, it may be set,directly in
front, nr In the front and in the side
gore on each side of the front, Omitting the lace, or the embroidery of the
lines, makes the work n great
deal cosier,
To apply the design, lay impression
paper between linen and pattern, and
pin all three thicknesses down upon
rowing board or uld table, so that the
design camml slip.
Then go over the design carefully
with a hard pencil, and ii will 1.: clearly transferred to the linen below.
If (lie skirt is gored, each gore should
be embroidered separately; if circular,
it Is best to stamp eacli pane! as yuu
work It; Imt block out where the design is to bo repeated when vuu stamp
the first—which will be the front-panel,
An even easier way, if the linen is
shier enough for the design to show
thii ugh. is to pin it firmly over tho
pattern and to trace \\ off with a rnlher
soft pencil-one that will make clear
blnck lines.
Tlie pattern fur the blouse, which
rompleles ihe three-piece costume, will
be given next Sunday,
