Raise Provincial Revenues from Natural Resources and
Keep Down Taxation.—Competition from States Detrimental to B. C. Lumbering Industry.
Victoria, li. C Feb. 17.—As a consequence ot a conference held today between a delegation of nearly 120 lum-
lerand timber men with Sir Hi'hard
McBride and bis colleagues of the ministry a committee of th.' timber Inter-
els i- now in ■ lose consultation with
Hon. W t: Ro . minister of lands for
tho purio" of discussing tha sections
of the Bill to amend the Forest act,
which dai- with the proposed in-
crease in royalty from o<) cents to $L
from and after January 1, I'Jlti. The
lumbermen conferred with the executive council eei tbo government for

.M.S. Logan of Vancouver was the
Introiu er and lirst speaker of the
delegation and stated that the an-

timbermen. Th d legation expected
that the govcr . nent would give every

DISCUSSION
CONTINUES
Ottawa.   Keb. lx. — Although thero
may be some sittings ol   the house lllll
ing tin' week it is not expected tha*
any serious Bght will develop in con
nc iimi with ihe second reading of the
naval bill between Tuosday afternoon
when ii will be taken up, and Friday
night.    As   is always   the case   on   SOO
ond reading, considerable time will hu
allowi I fm dise ii- iou and the niinis-
te'is will again be beard from.
Premier Borden, lion. W.T. While,
an.l a numlier of t onaervative mem
bers who bad prepare, 1 speeches when
moved from tho spirit of politics and
placid entirely In the hands of the
lorest ry bo.ir.l no opposition would
te offered to ihe increase of one half
•ent per acre to be assessed against
lbe holders of timber of Ure protection purposes.
BEST MEN WANTED.
On this latter point Sir Richard declared that the government would be
vory sorry to hear that anything in
the nature of political prefeienoe had
been allowed to influence selections
of men in the forest protection • ser-
vice. He stated that the best of meu
veil' wanted.   Utterly irrespective   of
»hal their political opinion might be
i.u.i the govornmont had always trie.l
to con luet the service on that basis,
Mr. I.o can declared that he did not
ivish it to be thought that the delegation was passing any reflection on the
forestry branch, they wer.' merely
trying to forestall anything in the nature of political preference which
mighl creep into ibe affairs of the
partment in future years.
PAYS QUARTER OF TAXES.
T. F. Peterson, in an able speech,
noted that the lumber industry was
I aymg about 25 per cent of the taxes
of Uriiisli Columbia. He compared
loyalties charted on timber in this
province with the charges in the e.ist-
iin Canadian provinces, and stated
that the timber interests were asking
for stability of royalty as well ai
stability of tenure whii h had been
granted some years ago. The lumber
milling business was far from being
remunerative, and he declared that
ia-t year his millg jn Van'-ouver had
hist  money.
DUMPED  LUMBER DETRIMENTAL.
W.A.   Anstie   also  staled   thai      the
lumber business lu the mountain  s

lutely unremunerativo, largely owing
to tbo large amount of AmerK-an lum

also spoke   on l.eh ilf  of   tlle   del i-el.-i.
as did A. Taylor, barrister, of    Van-
ouver.
PREMIER'S   REPLY.
In reply t.i tic representation made
Sir Richard declared that he was   astonished to hear it.   He said that the
lumbering interests had  received notification of the contemplated ac
the government in increasing  live roye
alty on timber.   Eome years ng" when
the tenure of license holders had been
fixed  in perpetuity tli.-ie had  been an
understanding that the royalty w      o
be advanced      inti.i.e.   He also noted
that   for years  the governmenl     had
been telling  the pro; le of the     province from the floor of the house thit
II was tbe intention to rely on securing tli.e revenue of the province largely |
from the natural   resources   of    Ihe
country,    an.l  in  this way  do     uway
with the taa'iun  on personal     an.l
other property    anl    othor forms    of
taxation now existing.   In the light of |
Ihese facts,  sail  Sir     Richard,     the
lum',er interests must have had ample
notice'  that   they  could look  for     increased royalty.   He stated that   thi
government  had  to secure  revenue the
country was growin; aid the government  believed   that  tvitn  development
win' h  will  follow  :he opening of new-
lines of railway    and  of the Tanima!

Report of First Six Months' Activities.—Protecting Standing Timber. —Re-Afforestation of Cut and Burnt Over-

Victoria. H.C, Feb. IS—Thc Fore.t1
Branch of the Department of Lau.is
issues its tii hi report ou the 2oth.
The Branch is only six months eld,
hut even in ihe short time -ime .is
organization  it  has  done  much     to
a.Ivan."   th-  cause   if   scientific   management  of : he forest  resources.
British Columbia his a woodel ar»a
whi. h produces annually, according to
a gen ral estimate recently mnde, hve
times as   i ti ii c-Ii a-   is   cut.   The      wide
development of iln whole timber grow
lh and it- protection fiom fire are thd
ohjects of the forestry movement now
afoot in thi- provinoe. Ths most
important portion of the work is the
safeguarding of the merchantable tlm
her already standing and ihe chiel
forester devotes the hulk of the report i o a eon (deration of the ways
and  mean-  of  lire  protection.
When tiie Branch was established
last, iiiiiiier. ihe fire patrol force had
already taken t-he field and it was
therefore Inadvisable to make radical
change in Ils methods of organise
tion. Consequently the season's work
wa carried oul under existing conditions, Tho wmk wa remarkably
■uccosbful in view of (he small iium-
■jicr of warden employed, the weathot
being very favorable and only $;;oo,ooo
damage b.-in:;    done io the standing
timher. A great u,.ftl of damage to
young growth which cannot lie calculated in tigures should be added to
the foregoing estimate, since the ar
ci burned over wai no less thnn 116/
i  n acres.
There were 317 tir.- altogether. Th,-
cont patrol and fighting fire to government and private companies and
Individuals aggregated $203,647, This
.Iocs not include the money .-p'-nt by
tha railroad companies in patrol al
ong their tracks an.l hy private tim
ber owners in building trails and tele-
plum.' lines  in  their holdings.
Over 9400 permits for the binning of
brush in land clearing, were Issued,
and it i.s gratifying to note that only
eight fires escaped, a result that shows
that greater care is being exerci-ed iu
slash  burning.
The regular force of fire wardens in
the past season e-onsisting of 16S men
.■ ho Bflorts were augmented during
tb" mosl dangerous season by forty-
right  patrolmen.
The total area included within the
sixteen fire divisions of the Province,
which were organ! ed was aboul 12S,
000,000 acres, of which It i-- estimated
thai    aboul  80,000 000 to mn.ooo.ooo
a i.s are covered with -ome kind of
limber, and 50,000,000 to 65,000,000
acres are    rea]    forest land, i
with mature timber or valuable   sec
on.I growth.
The- area patrolled last year averaged about HOO.OOO acres to each patrolman.
The railways, loth those operating
and those' under construction, itsponj
ed most satisfactorily to the re [uests
of the Provincial Forest Branch nnd
the Board of Railway Commissioners,
and gave attention to clearing d.-bria
from their rights of way and 'o theii
patrol.
Th.' Chief Forester observes thai m
I the nature of th ninlry ii  is aluiu-t
Impossible to extinguish fires in
many parts of the province with ait
some means of getting men quickly
on tb" ground. To this end trail-,
ne lines, tool cai hes, and rang
• •  cabins    are   absolutely necessary.
He regards ;, total    mileage   of  296
of tel phone Iln is and 168 mill a
• ••  trail as in.iispensible for the com
n_'  year,   and   urges for    construction
in the very near future an additional
1020 miles of telephone line. Work on
cabins and tool caches Is to begin al
most immediately. Already hid-have
licen n-kc! on -i.x launches for coast
patrol and two for the Kootenay and
Arrow lakes
Tbe creation of forest reserve- in
whicli permanent improvements for
the prot-tion and harvesting of the
timber can be made, is strongly recom
mended. In many districts these re-
-erves are of most consequence for
their influene'e in equalizing the flow
of watei  needed   for irrigation.

when I tried to urinate.
I treated with mv family physician

About that time, I met another r.ulro id

io table citizens and working iron of
ibe oity (which in this case was very
respectable) cannot goon their busi-
wit.honi ,,,i attempt io murder
them wen" a disgrace to our flag,
