The Grand Jury having completed
Its labori, bags to submit the following
presentment. We have given careful
attention to your intereitinf remarks
regarding the manner ol dealing with
pers. ns committed (or indictable
offences and alter investigation find
tint it has not been the practice to
notify a judge on such occasions, in
order that the prisoner may have the
opportunity ol electing lor speedy
trial. We think that, if thc statu.e in
this regard be adhered to in luture it
would lessen the labors of the Assize
Court. We have acquainted ourselves
with the conditions ol the various
public buildings in the city and find
tbat the only one calling for special
mention, is the Provincial gaol, which
is inadequate and ..male. We are
pleased, however, to learn that tl.e
government is now arranging for a
more suitable and secure building to
be completed at an early date. We
would respectfully urge that steps te
taken towards building a trallic bridge
across the Columbia river at thii
point. The increasing settlement on
the west side, and the great scope of
lands suitable for agriculture there
requiring better moans of access
Respectfully submitted,
Foreman ol Grand Jury.

The fact of the increase in the number ol applications fur enrolment on
tbe civic voters' to, as compared with
last year, is distinctly gratifying and
demonstrate that the people who are
coming into the community have a
desire to interest themselves in all
municipal matters aud enjoy their
rights as citizens of Revelstoke. The
more interest that is taken in municipal legislation the more sound aud
solid becomes the civic government,
and every citizen should try if possible
to take an active part in all inntten
pertaining to the city management
and not after they have elected their
mayor and aldermen, sit back ami
grumble at and criticise sll they do.
The position ol alderman is no line-
cure and the electors should aid a>
much as possible with their co-operation the work oi the city council.
Civic pride once thoroughly established will tend to expand the minds ol
the citizens, and with a lively interest
in'the city administration, the people
will find that they themselves will he

Essay by G. Elley which won
Prize Offered by Mr. A, C.
Fltimerfelt for Best Description of B. C.'s Forest Wealth.
[Continued Irom lust Ibpur.]
The great fuult out herein Uriliifh
Columbia is that we have an overabundance o! timber wealth, und these
apparently ininll items me lost .ight
ol. It hns beeu stated on gooil authority tbat the amount of material
thrown away or burnt up ns refuse
during tbe Inst quarter ol a century,
iu the United States alone, il available today could be worked up into
saleable commodities vniticd ut $5,000,-
000, Thii goes to show what the
..pp.ire.illy small Irak* mean. British
Columbin is consider.d one of the
world's great gold-producing areas,
but the amount ol material annually
wasted in thc production of lumber
will more than counterbalance the
value nf the gold mined during thc
same period.
Mention sliould also he'made ol tbe
great possibilities for the manufacture
ol pulp. Doth Iir and spruce, especially the latter, are nduiiianly adapted
for the production ot tbis article, and
us these wocdl »re found in all parts
ol the provir.ee, the supply of raw
material is unlimited, especially along
the coast and on Vancouver Island.
In tbe southern part fir is the predominating wood, but farther uurlh
the growth of Fpruce is most abundant—and on account of tl.e nearness
of Ihe timber to tbe water, the problem ol transportation is in a great
measure simplified.
It is not likely that thc industry
wiil assume very large proportions in
the interior for some considerable
time, owing to its disadvantage in the
matter of transportation.
Although active operations have not
as yet been commenced, the province
bids fair to eventually become tbe
chief centre lor thc manufacture of
this article. The available supply ot
raw material is being rapidly depleted
in the eastern states, and even now
they aie forced to secure the bulk ot
their wuod supply from the provinces
of Ontario and Quebec. When these
sources are exhausted tbe paper manufacturer must look elsewhere, and
British Columbia will- he his only
The principal markets which could
be supplied are Japan and Australia,
both of whicli countries are large pulp
buyers This trade is now controlled
by the British ind American mills,
but there is no reason why the concerns established here could not compete for the business. The cost of
labor mny bc higher, but the British
Columbia manufacturer would Lave
the advautage of cheaper power, as
there are numerous sites along lhe
coast where excellent water power is
available. The time and money represented in transportation across tl.e
continent would ulso be saved, a lever
which would go a long way towards
enabling him to control these markets.
Several companies have been formed
und timber limits acquired, but matters bave not got beyond tbe incorpor-
ation stage so far.
In tl.e past, large portions of the
lorest area have beeu swept by Hies,
especially in the interior. Along tne
coast their ravages have not be so
extensive, owing to the heavier rainfall and the closer growth of the limber. However, no partol the province
is immune, particularly during the
summer mouths. Although in instances due to natural causes, these
fires are more often the result of carelessness. Sometimes it is the settler
in the clearing of bis land, or the
prospector and camper who neglect to
take proper precautions in the lighting of fires in the timber. Sparks
Irom passing locomotives, aud donkey
engines engaged in logging operations
aro also responsible for serious con-
Lately more stringent regulations
bave been adopted and fire warden
appointed in tbe settled districts, hut
although fully alive tu its duties thc
force is inadequate, and provision
should be made lor its establishment
on a basis which will permit of the
proper policing of tbe entire timber
With a seemingly inexhaustible
supply of limber to draw from, and a
population comparatively few in numbers, but little consideration has been
given to the all-important subject ol
forest conservation, nnd owing to the
very limited demand for our lumber
early logging operations were conducted ou a must extravagant scale. Tbe
upper grides of fir and cedar alone
were saleable, practically all spruce
and hemlock, which oltan represented
tho greater portion of the timber,
being passed over as worthless. The
l. lli.-g ol the trees was also conducted
iu a wasteful manner, cutting being
nde as high as l.'i anil 20 feet from
the butt.   Many ol theie claims have

America, However, tho rapid depletion ol the principal timber are..* 1.:..
resulted in their realiaing its true
value iis a means ol providing it supply
ol tin.l.er for luture geneiations; and
in the United States, particularly,
enormous tracts of huul huve been sel
aside lor the purpose of conducting
experiments along the line of tree
culture, with a view to .be establishment on a permanent basis.
For the carrying out of this work
ona large scale, no poition of the
continent is better adapted than our
province. Owing to its mountainous
nature there are huge tracts ot land
unlit for farming, which, however,
cannot be excelled lor tree-growing,
Our native woodB are very hardy, and
will thrive where other forms of vegetable growth could not exist, The
climate, too, is peculiarly suited f(r
the purpose, it lieing possible to successfully grow almost every form of
tree com mon to the temperate zones.
ltef.irestration is bound to play au
i...p...taut part in tlie future ot the
province. It oilers the only practical
solution of the problem preseiite.il in
rendering tiu.se vast areas, a large
portion of which is now covered with
timber, revenue producing, for after
been cut over they will again revert tu
thc crown, and no other alternative
remains but their gradual reforestation under the supervision ol the government—the same as is now (lone in
Norway and Uenuany, lor instance.
There ull the timber is state-owned,
the cui ting aud culture of the trees
being under its direct control. The
handsome profits derived trom this
source are the best evidence which
can be adJuced to suppo.t the system.
Fir and spruce are the woods most
suited for cultivation, these trees being
available for the manufacture of lumber after a growth of about fifty years,
and for pulp much earlier. With proper supervision, a yield of Irom 40,000
to 50,000 feet per acre is quite possible
in that time. Cedar could also be
grown io advantage.
Thc first step necessary for the carrying out ot any reforestration schome
would be the clearing off of all timber
lands already cut over, in order to
permit ol the new trees being planted.
Owing to the methods employed in
logging, most ol these areas are coveted wiih fallen timber of every description, and as the growth ol underbrush is very rapid, this is soon covered wilh a tangled mass, five and six
feet thick in places. These lauds
would have to be burnt over thoroughly before they would be fit to receive
tbe tree seeds which could then be
sowu iu the nsbes.
Although this course will not be
necessary for some years yet, it is only
a mutter of time when we must face
the possibility of a timber shortage,
unless some scheme, such as outlined
above, has heen adopted in tlie meantime. It is to be hoped, however,
tbat profiting by the mistakes ol
others our statesmen will huve been
far-seeing enough to provide fur such
a contingency, und not wait until the
forests are a thing of the past before
taking definite action. At the present rate of consumption, to say nothing of what will take place when the
industry reaches its zenith, the supply
will be exhausted belore the closo ol
the century. With the adoption of
proper reforestration   methods.
