FALL FAIR
Opened by Mr. A. C. Flunimerfelt
and Visited By the Forestry
Commission-Most Successful Exhibition
The Becond annual RevelBtoke Fair,
which cloned Friday night, whb the
liueat demonstration ol the fertility ol
lhe Hoil nnd progress Ol agriculture
mul industry that has ever heen held
iu North Kooteuay. The number ol
entries wan lar iihoad of luat year and
the Fair had the nieriiol being almost
entirely representative of local pro
ductiuns. The attendance, especially
on the lirst day, was large, and all
voted the fair a greal su cess.although
llie sporting element expressed themselves as disappointed with the number ol outside horses in for the raceB.
This, however, will Le remedied another yeai, as i[tiite a number ot local
men who love a good race, and are
admirers ol horse lleah, say they will
establish stables iu Bevelstoke thit
will take some heating, aud the time
is not far distant when the racing m
the local lair will ttske a leading place
among the race meetings ol the Province. The stewards, who had charge
o! the race program, Messrs. A. J.
MeDonell and A. McKae, however,
made the best of it and put up a local
programme which resulted iu excellent racing and some very close
finishes.
IHE OPENING OEBEMONY
The Mayor arranged lor Mr. A. C.
Flunimerfelt. who ia one of the moet
progressive and most public-spirited
men of British Columbia, to open the
Fair. Mounting the judge's box in
Irunt of the Urand Stand, Mayor
Lindmark introduced Mr. Flummer-
felt to the crowd, and said fiom the
quality of the exhibits at the Fair it
would uot be long before il was second
to none in the Province.    (Cheers).
Mr. Flunimerfelt, who was received
with cheers, said be felt deeply grati-
tied to have the opportunity of opening this the second annual Fair held
in Kevelstoke. Coming in here that
morning he wns almost ashamed lo
say he had no knowledge ol such an
exhibition having been organised in
their midst. He hnd not the. knowledge that ther were able to rui-e in
this part ol tlie Province the splendid
products they saw on exhibition there
today. They were to he congratulated on tins movement, ami on the
results they were achieving. (Cheers).
These local agricultural associations
were iipportant factors in the development ol tlieir resources. II iw material,      power,   traiisportati  n,     ai d
markets were essentials to ihe progressive development ol any community. They had all tlieae in
abundance snd  it was  lor  them to
utilise them to the hesl advantage.
The products of the soil were essential
to the lite ,-f Immunity.
Their Fair demonstrated the (act
that the soil around Kevelsloke was
very productive They hail also a
great variety ol mineral wealth which
must lai developed. In consequence a
great deal ol lulior would be employed
and this meant a large population
becoming centered here in the future,
(Cheers). They had in the Fair llie
evidence that Ihey could glow ii high
quality nl grain, excellent Specimen!
ol Iruit, and ol other products which
would become widely known and
result iu bringing in people to settle
on their lands. They all heard a
great ileal aliout the production ot the
prairie provinces, Imi il they took ItiU
acree ol prairie land and allowed a
wheat production ol 1.1 to IH bushels
to an acre, ami sold it at a dollar a
bushel, the value of the product ol
that quarter section was about 12,400.
I i they took ten acres ol laud in
liritish Columbia and planted it in
Iruit they could at least estimate an
average yield of ifllOO an acre or $!),()00;
ao that ten acres of their land could
be made to pro luce as mucl. as 100
acres ot land on the other side of the
mountains, (Cheers). Tbey also had
the advantage ol great renour_.es ol
water-power. They had tbe Columbia Kiver lying at their leet and their
industrial lite would become more
active than it wbb at present, while
cheap light and power could he lur-
n i-1 nil to the settlers in their vicinity.
lu addition to tbeir sawmills, other
Industries such an box factories would
spiing up. ami afford incri'iisetl employment to labor. Kailway lacilities
were improviug  and  the time wouid
oome     when   other   railways    would
traverse   these   valleys,   Uiiib   uiving
J tbem improved transportation facilities and lowest possible rales. (Cheers)
He was   much   siru.-k   with   the   line
exhibit of poultry, and let  him say to
the o that it was  possible  within the
ooniines of this provin ;e" to raise from
poultry Irom %2 50 to W per hen.     At
Fetaluma,  Cal ,  wbere   there  whb   a
population   of   0,000   people    mainly
dependent   upon   poultry,   the   daily
income  from  that   source alone was
Jt ,1100 a duy.      There   wiih no    reason
why the $600,00 annually paid out hv
British Columbia to outside growers
for eggs and  $200,000 lo  $300,000 for
poultry, should noi he entirely  saved
to the people  ot   this   province  and
made available for the development of
their     other   industries.    With    improved methods would come   the raising   ol other   products   as tomatoes,
hopj, etc.   Then   would   lollow   canning factories.    He noticed tbey conltl
grow excellent sugar  beet,  and there
waa uo leason  why  the  time  should
not come when they should have tlieir
own  augur factory  and  manufacture
the sugar ihey need  in  tlieir  homes
and   industries.    Let  them  take  up
their life's work   with   a  perseverance
that never tirod and the results   must
soou be  lelt  to   the  benelit  of   their
city  and   district.    He now   declared
the F'air opeD.    (Cheers).
THE ACCOMMODATION
fur exhibits was greatly improved (rom
la-i Fair, show rooms having been
erected for the flowers and Iruit and
for the poultry, Hy the time another
Fair comes round a building Bhould
b? erected for the co npetition in dogs
which is destined to become un im-
por'ant feature of future shows.

II
Session at Revelstoke a Most
Important One
The Timber and Forestry Commission opened its sessions in tbe city on
Friday, Sept. 10th, at HI a.m. and
continued taking evidence until Sat
iinliy evening. There were present
Commissioners Hou. F, J. Fulton
(chairman), A. 0. Flommerfelt and
A. S Goodeve, M. P , It. E. Gosnell,
Secretary, and F. .I. Hartley, official
stenographer. W. A. Ansti", secretary,
nnl .1. A. Harvey, K ,C, were in attendance on behalf of the Manufacturers and Timberbolders Associations.
Messrs. O. I. Boynt in, manager ol
the Union Lumber Co., Ltd., S. 11.
Bowman, Pieaiilent of the Union
Lumber Co., Ltd., W. 0. Brewer,
Manager of the Big Bend Lumber
Co., Ltd., C. F. Lindmark, Manager nf
the Kevelstoke Sawmill Co , Ltd., ('.
K Skin.e, Secretary of tlio Lee Lumber
Co., Ltd., anil J. M. Kellie, gave evidence ol a convincing nature in
support of tlie content ions of the
timber holders and operators for a
more satisfactory title to special
timber licenses, aB contained in the
following petition:
In February, 1008, a petition, with
some minor clauses, which have siuce
been granted, was presented to tho
government with the cndoraation of
the Mountain Lumber Manufacturers'
Association, the Coast Lumber antl
Shingle Manufacturers' Association
and the B. C. Timber and Forestry
Chamber of Commerce, and is still
urgently desired by those interested:—
1. " That the present yearly licenses
be made renewalde until the timber
h -lil thereunder is logged off
2. That the present annual rental
shall not exceed during the term ol
the license $140 west, of tlie Cascades
and $115 east of the Caacades.
3. The attention of the Government
is called to the fact that when claims
are surveyed thero will undoubtedly
lie f. und small areas of merchantable
timber lying between the adjoining
claims which, in the best interestsof
nil concerned, should be logged at the
same lime ns the limits tiny adjoin,
und ih.it statutory pri vision should
be made covering this point.
4. Tbat inasmuch as ihere is con-
staut uncertainty amongst operators
as to the amount of the royally to be
paid in future for limbei and became
of the i.ict that there is already a
difference in royalty in different holdings, we believe it to be in the inter-
eat of the government to lix saiil
royally at 50 cents per thousand
during., term of years, and that the
said royalty should at no time exceed
the amount in force on timber held
under snid lease."
The Commissioners admitted
sit'ing at Revelstoke furnished
nn Bt buiinesalike evidence they
yet heard.
All witnesses wire cirefoil/ examined at great length and iheir arguments appeared incontrovertible and
clearly demonstrated thai the necessity
(or the granting of tbeir request ia no'
only very urgent, in the interest of the
industry and the preservation of tho
forest;., lint ol the maintenance ol
Provincial timber revenues.
Tlie Comiiii sinners left Sunday
morning for Nelson where a session
was fixed for Monday.

Provincial timber regulations did
not compare very favorably with
the Dominion timber regulations
in thin respect,

The forest lire question was also
discussed and here again it was
shown that the method adopted
by the Dominion Government for
protection against the spread of
forest fires was much more ellicient
than the Provincial methods—in
fact throughout the entire session
it was always apparent that in no
respect did the Provincial regulations compare at all f ivorably with
the Dominion regulations. It was
shown tbat the. Provincial licence
fee was exorbitantly high, that the
tenure was ridiculously short and
that the conditions generally, from
a financial point of view, were so
unsatisfactory and uncertain that
it was impossible to get solid investors to put in the capital necessary to develop our latnnt timber
resources to its fullest capacity.
It is evident that this timber
question is a much more serious
matter financially than most
people are aware. To the ordinary
observer, or to those who are not
actually interested in the timber
business and entirely familiar with
the subject, the matter of the annual licence fee of $115 in the Interior and $140 at the coast, seems
a mere bagatelle when compared
with the iuture benefits that are
supposed to accrue to the holder of
a licence covering one square mile
(G40 acres) of timber. Why ifllC-;?
li is a mere tritle thev say, and
then ligure up mentally just how
much this square mile of timber is
worth. i'hey huve heard that '-•">
cents a thousand is a fair price,
and bast- tlieir calculations on Ibis
ligure—'2n cents a thousand feet,
on u basis of 10,000feel to tlie acre,
and 040 acres to the square milt —
nnd they lind nut thut (he owner.
at this price, would realize HOIK)
uut of his square mile of timber,
for which lie had only paid one or
two licences—clearly, this timber
business is a profitable one thej
conclude .ind they cannot see. under the circumstances, why ttie
timber men Bhould kick at paying
$115 annually und ask lhe (.iivrii-
ment for u reduction of tlie liceni •■
fee. The ordinary observer, having completed Ins little -mn in
uielitul arithmetic goes aiviv Feel
ing -ure that he has solved
timber question mice and for all
.uui settled the matter withoul
assistance ol tbe Forestry Comi
sion—anyway he cannot aee an
good reason   why   the I lovernmt ol

of lime at which experts have estimated that it will take at the present rate of cutting to clear off all
the timber from the lands now
held under Provincial timber licences, estimating the quantity to
he III) Iii I lion font.
And this is not taking into con-
uderutioii the natural increase,
which il properly harvested under
iip-to-datii forestry methods, would
produce a crop at the rate of from
2J tti I per cent annually, or equal
to from 2/ to -lj billion feel » year
—or from 'l\ to -li times more thnn
our present market demands.
Now, as we snid at lho start, tbe
timber question is a much more
serious matter financially than
most people suppose. The expense
of holding a square mile of timber
under the present existing conditions is ruinous from u financial
point of view, aud no sane business
man or solid financial institution
would, for a moment, consider it a
good investment. In fact many,
or we may say all, of the banks
consider timber held under the
present Provincial licences a liability instead of an asset. It is
true that, in a speculaiive sense,
considerable Provincial licence
timber has been bought and sold
at fair prices, more particularly at
the coast.
But tbat such timber has any
real or fixed value under present
conditions is questionable; for the
conditions under which licenced
timber is now held, apart from the
expensive and ruinous licence system, is both unsatisfactory and
uncertain, and offers no security to
the investor. To the prospective
investor, more particularly the
British investor with his I'.s.d.,
there must be no element of uncertainly or insecurity connected with
the title or tenure of the proposition offered him. He demands
certainty and security oi title a id
absolute assurance as to the future
conditions before he will risk a
dollur. Por an investment is not
a speculation, and an investor demands abi-oluie assurance before
lie will invest—while n speculation!
is looked upon more as a gamble—
nml a speculator is always willing
to take ii gambler's head or tail
chance on anything he puts his.
money into.

held under Provincial licence has
not been looked upon, or considered
a -ait- investment by capitalists]

no place up to the present huve
they obtained such clean cut and
outspoken evidence respewing the
timber question under consideration. Here they have been shown
the greut. contrast between the Dominion und Provincial systems of
dealing with timber holdings, and
the contrast between the mature
and almost perfect regulations of
the Dominion overshadowing those
of the Province lo such an extent
that comparisons are odious.
Living as we do in the Dominion
Railway Belt und fumiliar as we
nre with the Dominion timber regulations where the annunl licence
fee is only $5 per square mile to
those operating a sawmill in connection with their holdings; and
where the tenure is sure for all
time, and where the timber holdings
are all within easy distance of railway transportation; und where tie
forest lire protection is almost perfect; it seems strange that so many
people can be found who are willing to pay lit the rate of $115 per
square mile annually for Provincial timber holdings which nre situated in far-away districts hundreds of miles from railways and
where no fire protection is assured;
and where it is a physical impossibility to cut and carry u*ay and
market the timber within the life
of the Provincial licence.

crowding in. We must compel all tag-ends, oddments and endments to "Move On" in
this store—Stagnation is the death of trade.
We go After Them with the Big Stick and Prices are Radically and Effectively Lowered
What is the natural result ? What happens to seasonable, desirable goods when
they are priced far below regular ? They "Move On" of course, and at a pretty lively
gait.   These are the facts of the story, and you will find them interesting.

CITY OF REVELSTOKK CEMENT PIPE MAKING WORKS
CEMENT PIPE MIKING
Revelstoke First City in Interior
to Adopt System
llevelsloke has the distinction of
being the lirst interior city of liritish
Columbia to adopt the use of concrete
in the installation of its sewerage
system and while there nny be a lew
skeptics who are inclined to doubl the
wisdom of such a course on the pill of
the City Council there is abundance of
testimony to prove there is no material
Io surpass it for strength, rigidity,
durability, indestructibility anil adaptability.
Everything has its day. The l.allow
candle, useful in its time, gave way to
the keiosene lamp, the laiun in turn
yielded to Illuminating gas, and Dually
this became subordinate to llie incandescent light. In building materials,
wood gives way to brick, brick yields
to stone and steel, and all become
subordinate to concrete. The following from the "Cement Eva," July 1908,
may prove of interest: "For more
than IKI years sewers of concrete have
lieen in use in the cities of Brooklyn
and Milwaukee. In the latter city
there are more than i*K) miles of tbis
form of sewer.    Most of it,  moreover,
has been  buill   with a cement  much
inferior to the present day  Portland.
These sewers are subjected to every
destructive influence to which our tile
are subjected, and to the action of
organic sewage adds as well as to the
mineral acids froin various maim
factories. They are to-day in perfect
condition. Cement tile grows much
stronger with age.
On this point T. J, Sheier, of the
Board of 1'ublic Works, Milwaukee,
Wis., says: In all places where we
had lo replace t he sewers that wen-
put in in the early history of Milwaukee, we found the concrete pipe to
be intact.
For instance, only recently, wc were
required to take up a 12-iuch pipe and
replace it with a 20-lnoh, and for tlie
ciiliic length that pipe was found to
be iu elegant condition—very much
stronger than when first placed there.
There was no defect or flaw from one
end to the other."
It will thus bo seen that one of the
greatest advantages of cement tile is
ihe fact that it Increases in strength
with the lapse of time—it has the
power of life within itself—so that
even after it is laid, the process of
acquiring strength and durability will
be carried on.
The uniformity of shape of the cement tile is one of its strong  recom-
rnoulds perfectly round, true on the
ends, and without imperfections in
shape of any kind. This advantage
is most frequently spoken of by the
men who lay them and their preference is always for this class of tile.
Each cement tila lieing a perfect cylinder, they can be laid true to line and
the joints made perfect.
Cement tile can be submitted to the
action of the frost with comparative
safety, and be .distributed over the
ground in winter without any apparent deterioration. Concrete pipes if
well made of proper materials have a
strength to resist compressive, tensile
and bursting strains which is amply
sufficient for all purposes of a sewer in
any large city.
And there seems to bo no question
whatever that cement pipes are much
superior to the ordinary clay tile, and
infinitely preferable upon the ground
of economy.
On this continent the use of concrete
sewers is now beginning to assume
magnitude,
Since engineers have become more
conversant with the properties of
concrete their hesitancy in establishing concrete sewers is rapidly disappearing.
In view of these many convincing
facts in favor of concrete which have
done so much to increase public confi-
mendatlons.     They  come from    th „ dence in this material, the question o'
adopting concrete for use in our local
sewerage system became a live issue
and the present Oily Council of Kevelstoke with cotiiiiiendahlii progress-
iveness, decided to incorporate cement
pipe in theirlislof civic improvements,
With this object in view a contract
was let to the Hickman Cement and
Construction Co,, of Vancouver, B.C.,
to manufacture the different sizes of
bell-end pipe required for the Central
section, to include all Ys, Ts., bends
and other accessories. The accompanying cut will convey to the reader
an idea of the Kevelstoke Cement
Pipe works which are located at the
eastern end of the city, while a visit
to the plant will surely prove of
interest to those who have yet to learn
how the pipe are manufactured.
The work of installing lhe pipe is
being expeditiously carried out by
T, F. Sinclair, one of the pioneer
contractors of B.C., and who has had
a long and successful career on public
works throughout the province.
This sewage system now in course of
construction is being done under the
supervision of the cily engineer, Mr,
Lionel H. Buck, C. E., and the progress being made since its inception
warrants the prediction that in a short
period of time Revelstoke can claim
to having an up-to-date, and greatly
needed civic improvement; one in
which the citizens may take a just
pride and the City Council due credit
for their commendable zeal and foresight.
