AMERICAN
LUMBER
INVASION
New Westminster, Fob. 27.— The
great inroads made by the American
sawmills iii the Canadian Lumber
markets and the reason therefore were
'forcibly brought out at the annual
meeting of the New Westminster board
of tiade by the chairman of the Lum
ber Committee. Great increases in the
importation of American lumber over
tho-e of 1911 were proved by figures,
and it was claimed that Americans
were selling millions o: feet of lumber
btlow co t on the Canadian side oi
the lin I
Mr. J.G. Robson of thc Timberland
Lumber Company, chairman of the
committee, stated that ne knew of a
sale in Calgary of 1-,000,000 feet of
lumber at Uti.00 a thousand. Coast
man.ifaetureis would have to pay
irom $10 to $11 a thousand in freight
alone. He also knew of millions of
feet of lumber sold on this side o' the
line by Americans at $5.50 F.O.B.,
which was les-  than the cost of logs.
Import figures from the U.S.A. wero
..noted as follows:
1911
Pit h   Pine    5",000.0M
Timber          158,000
Lath        tMl.OOO^H

Free  Lumber ...3ll,0oo,cco   3.-.9,mio,0u0
llut.a'be   Lum.     43,00i),OO0     C4.000.000
The reason for thi- condition of
affair* was stated to be tb • condition
of lhe lumber industry i-i Washington
and Oregon. Tb • home demand in
■tatei b i I b imi very -mall said
Mr, Ho -on. ,luring ill ■ pa t two
years. The mills were forced io real-
ih'' lumber at nny price regard-
lest of profit- anl even of the cost of
pro ltu'tion.
An interesting feature of the report
was that in New We-tminster and the
Fraser Valley the lumber industry
gave emplo.-ment to 4,7Sti men in fifty-six mills, woodworking companies,
and lo.gin; camps. This would represent in wages about $3,000,000, and
an ouput of 350,000,000 feet of lumber or nearly one quarter of the wholo
output of British Columbia.
President Bourne took the chair at
8:30 p.m. The minutes of the preceding meeting were read and adopted.
The iin incial statement was present
ed, which -bowed the expenditure for
the past si'ason to be $141.24, leaving
a balance in lhe treasury of $24.79.
The averages for the past season
were rend, which showed Mr. F. H.
Bourne io head the batting averages
wiih an average of 17.75, and Mr.
Maley hcad.ng the bowlers with an
i.vcrige of 4.i;G. Mr. Bourne winning

Nelson, Feb. 27.—Nelson school af-
fairs are daily becoming more com-
plicated. At a meeting on Saturday
the school board deci'iled to dismiss
Alfred Cullen, a teacher in the public
school, giving him one month's salary
in lieu 0f n month's notice, Cullen being the only teacher now regularly em
ployed who has no certificate and is
teaching under a special permit. Mr.
t'ullen objected to the action oi ths '
l.oard, and applied to the department
of Education. He 'declares that Dr.
Alexander Robinson, Superintendent
of Education, has in reply notified
him that the board cannot oismiss
bim until !he end of June, and today
in spite of the hoard's resolution, he
appeared at the' sehool and taught as
usual.
Mr. t'ullen wns onj of the teachers
whu made complaint against M.'. Robt
Thompson, principal of the public
school, who was dismissed by last
year's school board and reinstated
ihis year. Investigation of the diliiculty begins tomorrow by Judge
Lampman, under instructions ol the
goveroment.
On Saturday the sehool board also
decided to transfer Mr. William Grey,
tcachi'r at the high S'hool to the pub
lie sehool. Mr. Grey also declined to
obey the order of the board, and today was at the high school as before
lie claims that th" school hoard has
no power to transfer his work from
onee s.hool to another, and will disregard the board's instructions.

London, Feb. 2C—Unless the unos-
pected happens, Enzlan,1's trade once
more will be paraly/ed by a i-ailroail
strike' over one man, a Midland railway guard, named Hie-hardson, who
was discharged for disobeying the order of bis superior to take on seven
additional trucks. Whether he was
justified in doing so is the question
which is a-itating thousands of mcn.
He thought lia• was doing light, it is
generally admitted. During 23 years
Kirvice with the Midland his reoor.l
has been practically perfect.
