MT. VICTORIA TRAIL
Completed—Ideal Excursion —
Grand Scenery
The trail up Victoria mountain
north of the city bus heen completed
and the route Irom the city to Grass
Lake is available for tourists and
sightseers. Tlie trail is an excellent
piece of work and all those who are
interested in such pastimes Bhould
now hit the trail to the summit. The
view fro u Grass Lake and adjacent
points is superb and will well repay
tbe climb. Tbe air is bracing and
cool, flowers are blooming in
abundance, while the humming birds
in colors variegated and beautiful are
flitting about as thick as bees. The
ascent is gradual and easy and one
would hardly realize that a rise of
6,000 feet has been made, or Ave miles
in actual distance, so interesting and
entrancing iB the view all along the
route. Arrangements are being made
whereby saddle and pack ponies can
be hired for tbe trip. The summit
consists of a grand park and is ideal
for camping. Residents need go no
further than Reveletoke fur a first rate
trip such as thia.
ALL SPEED  TO  WM. WHYTE
The Toronto Globe on the C.P.
R. Strike Situation
Two days of the industrial battle
between the C.P.R. company and its
mechanical employees have now gone
past, and nothing even tending towards a settlement has been heard of.
On the contrary, there are sign* that
other departments of the railway may
be involved. The company is maintaining a strict silence. Can it he
that tbe return from the coast of lhat
master mind, William Whyte, Second
Vice President, is being awaited by
olticials in I he East before any action
is agreed upoo? The attitude of his
whole railway career has been one of
conciliation and peace. He perhaps
understands tne West and the company's western employees as oo other
man. He is now speeding serosa tlie
continent toward the centre of the
trouble.
According to a Vanoouver despatch
yesterday, lie throws the onus of precipitating the trouble on the union.
There were a couple of alarming reports regarding the general situation.
An engine was ditched at Kenora and
a fire started at North Bay. If two
days is productive of-audi actions,
what will the future be unless decisive
and diplomatic steps arc taken for a
settlement?
SLUMP IN CEDAR
Owing  to  Order    Rescinding
Export of Logs
VANOODVEK, Aug. 11.—Owing to
the order of the provincial government revoking the privilege of exporting logs, cedar has slumped $1.60
a thousand feet. Buyers of cedar
have revised tlieir scale ol prices on
this basis for future purchases from
loggers.
Cnlar logs which were selling at
$7,50 per thousand feet at camps a
short distance up tlie Coast will
henceforth only fetch $(i, according to
the statement of a log buyer thiB
morning. At campa located far up
the coast where former ruling prices
were around $5.50 only $4 per thousand will be paid. In the latter
inetrnce the cost of towage is $2.
Government Btumpsgo 50 cents and
50 cents to yard the logs for the tugs,
to which is added 50 ccnta tor insuring the risk, wbicli brings the total
cost up to $7,50 per thousand feet in
Vancouver harbor.
Pythian Relief Fund
The Knights ol Pythias are taking
an active interest io the raising of
funds, for the relief of the sufferers in
the great fire iu the Crow's Nest country. The Pythian lodge at Fernie was
wiiied out and some of tho brethren at
Hosmer and other placee,alao suffered.
Grand Chancellor Brown, of Revelstoke, who haa been on the coast for
some time, has been working energeti
cully on behalf of the stricken mem
hers and baa issued a circular letter to
all the lodgca in the Province, appealing for (unds. The response has been
quick and substantial, Vancouver
lodges alone contributing $250, The
Grand Chancellor has appointed a
committee to handle the relief funds,
conaisting of F. K'immer, Cranbrook;
Mayor Tuttle and Dr Barbour, Fernie.
Thii committee will receive and disburse all moneys un behalf of stricken
Pytliians and their families and will
account fur same to tbe Grand Lodge.

If the millions of visitors who pass

averaging woll over twenty bushels,
while cutting will be general iu a week
or ten days.
On light lands, however, the drought
haa loft ita mark and abort atraw witli
attontuated ears ia eloquent of lack of
moisture.
Tlie same thing applies to heavy
landa wh re cultivation haa lieen poor
and slovenly, being thus wasteful of
tbe moisture in the ground.
The land so affocted will tend to
pull down the general average, hut as
no rust or smut baa made Rs appearance there ia good prospect that the

above than below the average of the
past decade.

Made from a light, flexible, yet durable felt,
it possesses that admirable quality which the
majority of hats lack—lightness in weight.
In addition to this the hat has a new leather
attachment which makes it most comfortable
and easy fitting. The "CARTER" is also
a leader in style, and the shape shown here
is one of the most popular in the fashionable
world of to-day.
A new hat would smarten you up for
the rest of the season. Choose it here.
Choosing is easy when you see yourself in
the mirror with a "CARTER." Call at our

you have Style, Comfort, and Service, making it the biggest value for the price

THE MONEY BY-LAWS
Tbe lack of interest Bhown in
civic afiairs by the property-owners
of the City on Saturday last when
the poll on tin* money by-laws wsb
taken, cannot be viewed up otherwise than deplorable. Out of a
total number ol 518 eligible to vote
on the questions only 12!< took took
the trouble to f_n to the pulls anil
cast their ballot. This means that
onlv one out of every live nf those
entitled took advantage nf the
opportunity. Viewed along other
line., the situation shows
th.it voters- ranging in numbers
from 8_ tu 102 placed upon the 518
property owners nf tin- city incumbrances in the form of additions lo
the city debt amounting to 98,800

and yet only a mere handful

regarding their control of civic

the manner In which the civic
authorities move in ihe line of

Saturday's vole it would seem that
the Council might noi bo ns justly

after the situation disclosed nt the
poll on  mi   Saturday  night, ho
rigidly laid at the door of the
electorate. It is stated Hint the

mayor anil aldermen are chosen to
carry out the will of the people and
on financial items of moment the
city charter expressly limits their
power to an appeal to the people.
No council can legally K" to an
extreme in financial matters without a vote of the people, hence it, is
judged that in the long run the
vote on money by-laws is even nf
more moment than the selection of
civic officials. The civic expenditures of Hevelstoke, upon the basis
of which the tax rate is struck are
largely made up of payments on
interest and sinking fund nn the
city's indebtedness. Through the
polls on money by-laws tbe electorate has indirectly a voice in the
declaration of   the civic  tax rale
since the VOle nil money by-laws
exercises a direct influence nn the
number of mills struck. The apathy
uf the people in not recording their
vote either way, on such important
matters as these is deplorable and
the degree of negligence to wbicli
the electorate has now attained certainly marks a point of lack of
interest which does not bode well
for the host control of civic affairs.
It is now too late to complain; the
by-laws are for the benelit of the
oity and her progress, and neglect
to express an opinion either way at
the pull is nut a ~ign that good
citizens admire or care tn put up
with.

C. P. R. STRIKE
Situation Unchanged -Japs Refuse Employment
VakoodVEH, Aug. 11.—The Vancouver men who are on strike received
word this morning that tlio Japanese
which the C.P.R. had endeavored to
put lo work on the prairies in the
place of strikers had refused to take
the positions ottered when they were
made acquainted with the trouble
between the company and its men.
It was given out by the press committee that a number of men offered
employment in the shops had refused
to accept it when acquainted with lhe
fact of the strike by the union pickets
It is stated by the strikers that of
the men employed by the company tn
take their phiees only about one in 20
is skilled, with the result that cars
are accumulating in the yards already,
though the stiike is only live days old.
The Vancouver men have received
ollicial circulars from the company
informing that their back wages are
now ready for them. So far none of
the men have .availed themselves of
the opportunity to draw their money
and do nut intend to do eo till Aug.
15. Ou that day $1,600,000 will be
drawn by the strikers.
Arrivals from the Atlantic coast
state that for two days after Btarting
out on tlieir journey they could not
get a drop of water on the train, tbe
men regularly employed in filling the
drinking water tanks being on strike
and there being nobouy to replace
them.
Tbe Japanese employed by the company icing cars at Kamloops in place
of strikers all quit work last Satuiday.
Some persons passing tlnough the
yards culled them "scabs" which so
incenBed the Japanese^ tbat. they overturned their truck load of ice on the
spot, grabbed ttheir coats and disappeared.
Sonic ten u eu picked up in Vancouver last week by agents of ihe
company were taken to Nelson on
Satuiday to work in the shops at that
point.
It is reported that there are li ve
engines at Calgary wbicli are not in
condition to be taken out on the road,
but the power on tbe Pacific division
is reported to be in good condition.
From Vancouver rast ward dozeiiB of
operatives of private detective agencies
aie scattered aroiu.d division points.
They are engaged in guarding strike
breakers and picking up what in for
niation they can relative to strike
conditions.
Montbeal, Aug. 11.—Outside of a
denial by the O.P.K. otliciuls that 200
additional workers joined the strikers
on Saturday, the strike ciluatioii remains practically unchanged.
Notice was put up tbis morning in
tho Angus shops that (unly skilled mechanics would be employed as unskilled workers had failed.
Tbe Canadian Pacitic railway have
not imported any men to replace the
stiiking machinists and has no intention nf doing SO, itate. Mr. William
Whyte, the second vice-president of
the company. "Uudor no circumstances will we conuivo at or countenance any violation of lhe alien labor
act. The Canadian Pacific iB a law-
abiding oorp ration. Of course there
aro many thousands of skilled unemployed machinist! in the United
States. II these people voluntarily
Obnoie to oome to Canada in search of
work that is their own affair."
ORDER RESCINDED
No More Logs to be Exported
From B. C.
The government has rescinded tin
Oidi rincouncil of March 18th which
piirinitted the export of logs to the
United States. It is estimated that
between eight and ton million feet,
practically all cedar, was marketed on
Puget Sound since the order wiih put
into effect.
The original action of the government it is oxplained hy members of
the ministry was lor the purpose of
preventing the destruction of timber
by teredoes which Um lumbermen
asserted was taking place owing to the
demand in the province having fallen
off. Opportunity !ms been given to
overcome thiB difficulty now and the
law will again be enfmced uriiinst
export of logi to tbo United Statin.

BY LAWS  CARRIED
58,300 Voted for New Fire Alarm
System and Parks
Voting on the two money bylaws on
Saturday, namely for the raising of
$5,000 by debentures for tbe improvement of city parks, and also of if!I,!!00
for the purchase and installation of a
new and up-to-date lire alarm system,
was slow and apathetic. The apathy
of Ihe electors can be either put down
to the heal, lorgetfuliiess or sheer in-
dilierence, but whatever it was the
majority of citizens failed to appear at
the polls and some ol those who came
turned up with the idea that the matter was of little importance. Even a
new lire alarm system, an improvement which the city rightly deserves,
was imt HUllicient to cause more enthusiasm. I n spite of the indifference
of the public at the polls, the progressive citizens bud suflicieiit energy to
roll up and by a narrow margin puss
both bylaws. Out of the total number
ol eligible voteB, namely 518, a very
.mall percentage recorded tlieir votes,
but yet Buflioient to turu tbe scale
according to tho law,

Creosoted Timber
Creosnted limlier is not used to any
large extent us yet in mining operations. This seems to he due in part
to luck of interest in or understanding
of the benefits to be gained, ami also
from the desire of managers to keep
down present costs, regardless of wbat
the balance shccl live years later
might reveal. Any mine which lias
expectations ot surviving for a.period
longer than live years cannot afford to
uie untreated timber in t-hafis, gangways and oilier openings intendid to

of mines erect works before a justifiable development of ore has been
made, and exist in a piecai ions condition, wiih ore reserves Inadequate lo
