Proceedings of Annual Meeting
—Encouraging Reports
The annual meeting of Kamloops
Presbytery, which met on Wednesday
morning in Knox Church, closed its
sessions on Thursday evening. The
meetiug was well attended aud much
interest was taken in the work ol the
session. Rev. W. L. MacRae, ol Ool-
en, was elected Moderator lor the year.
An interesting discussion took place
on the question ol dividing tbe Pres-
bytery and forming another Presbytery lor tbe Okanagan Valley. The
motion for division however was lost.
A very encouraging matter was the
report on Systematic Bencficience
preseuted by Rev. 0. W. Wbyte, showing that great inorease has taken place
in tbe giviogs of the congregations lor
Home and other missionary purposes.
It was decided to endeavor to get the
congregations to make monthly offer-
ingr for such objects.
Tbe report oo Sabbath Schools was
presented by Rev. Logie Macdonnell
of Vernon, and indicated progress all
along tbe lines ol S. S. work.
The work of Young People's Societies was read by Rev. J. U. Duncan of
Salmon Arm, and while the report
showed much care io preparation it
also told tbe old story ol young people's weakness in church life and work.
Tbere is a great opportunity lor young
people's work—to get to work,
Tbe report on Moral and Social'Reform presented by Rev. J. R Robert
son, indicated that conditions are
greatly improving with lespeet to such
matters as Sabbath Observance, Temperance sentiment, Uambling, tbe
Social Vice, Political Purity, etc., and
showed that B. C. is last coming to its
own with respect to the higher moral
life and Christian sentiment of the
The Home Mission report presented
by Rev. I >. Campbell, ol Armstrong,
was as usual one of the most interesting questions belore tbe Presbytery.
A special feature wae the adoption
ol a resolution looking to a more effective method ol co-operation witb the
Methodist Church in the administration of a Home Mission Heidi.
Tbe eongregation ol Summerland
made a requeit that the obaige there
be separate and independent ol tbe
congregation at Penticton, and tbat
Rev. Jas. Hood be retained as paator
for Summerland, A commission ol
Presbytery was appointed to visit tbe
charges and carry out the wishes ol
the request, il such arrangement is
acceptable to Penticton.
Another call was presented trom tbe
congregation at Ashcroft in favor ol
Rev. M. E. Henderson, B.A., which
was sustained aod provisional arrangements made for tbe induction io tbe
near future. A resolution oi sympathy was bere expressed to Rev. and
Mrs. Henderson in tbeir bereavement
by tbe death of their little daughter.
On Wednesday evening a public
meeting was beld and very interesting
and instructive addresses were given
by Rev. Logie Macdonnell and Rev. F.
W. Kerr, In addition to these addresses was an interesting program of
music. Tbe Knox Cburob choir gave
a good rendering ol tbe anthem "Sun
ol My Soul," and Mrs. Bows sang
witb mucb appreciation, "Face to
Face," Two members ol tbe Presbytery also sang solos, wbicb the Iriends
ol Revelstoko mucb enjoyed. Mr. O.
S. McKenzie sang "Rock ol Ages,"
and Rev. J. T. Conn, "Be Still My
Soul." Needless to lay those who
were not at this publio meet ing missed
a rare treat.
Convenors (or standing committees

follows' lie?. D. Campbell, Home
Missioni; Rev. W. L.Mackaa, Foreign
Missions; Rev. J. lt. Robertson, Moral
and Social Reform; Rev. Jas Hood,

New Association for Protection
and Forest Preservation
Prominent lumbermen Irom all parts
ol Uritish Columbia have been in session in Victoria during the past week,
with the result tbat annuo cement is
made of the lormation of a new or-
ganizatian to be known as the B. C.
Lumber, Logging and Forestry Association, witb which is amalgamated
the B.C. Timber and Forestry Chamber
of Commerce. Tbe objects of the new
association, wbiob will represont
gr ater vested interests than any ever
formed iu British Columbia, are, in
addition to the promotion of mutual
interests, to secure stable titles to
timber lauds, legislation in tbe interests ol its various branches and the
conservation ol tbe loresti.
The ollicers ol tbe Dew association
are: A. O. McRae, president; Otto
Lacbmund, 1st vice presidont; M. S.
Login, 2nd vice-president; Peter Luod,
3rd vice-president; T. F. Patterson, 4th
vioe piesident.
An executive committee ot leven
aod an advisory committee ol 42
members have been appointed.
Victoria is represented on the executive committee by A. C. Flummer-
felt and Miebael Carlin.
At a later melting it is likely that
the association will appoint two secretaries, one ol whom will likely be Dr.
Judson Clark, secretary treasurer of
tbe B.C. Timber and Forestry Chamber
ol Commerce, now amalgamated with
the new association, and Mr. Anatie,
tbe present secretary of tbo Mountain
Mills Association.

Snowshoers  Club   Outing  to
Four-Mile Camp
The feature of tbis week's outdoor
amusements was the suowsboe tramp
by the members of the Ski and Snow-
shoe Club. An early start was made
about twenty club members answering
to the call. Tbe party entrained
south as far as 11-mile where, through
the courtesy of the C.P.R. tbe train
was stopped in order to allow thorn to
drop off. At this point tbe real work
ol the tramp began and alter a most
exbi'oraiing journey through the
ranches, across ilough and stream,
drift aod bank, a halt was made at
4-mile camp. The sun was very hot,
but tb i air keen and lull of ozone,
which had the effect of an intoxicant
to the souses. Tbe surlaco ol tbe
■uow was in excellent shape, the condition! being perfect lor tramping.
On arrival at tbe camp at 4 mile, of
the Bowman Lumber Co., mine host
Mr. J. H. Jackson, bad made ready to
welcome bis guests, the ladiei being
regaled with a refreshing cup ol tea,
tbe real secret ol whioh is known only
to a logging camp chef. While waiting for lunch a number ol the party
wandered away up the logging road to
where the logs were piled on the roll
way, the forest scenery being delightful. Lunch—tbat most welcome of all
Bounds in the ear of a snowshoer.
Appetites had been whetted by tbe
glorious exercise of the tramp, good
humor had been heightened by the
pleasant chaff and chatter during tbe
trip. Lunch—it would be dillicult to
describe the repast that the genial
boat had provided lor bil merry
guests. A lumber camp is famed for
its menu and for the quality as well aa
quantity. Cook and cookee bad risen
to the occasion, and the long tables in
tbe mesa house groaned under tbe
weight of the good things temptingly
displayed. There was no standing on
ceremony, eat, just eat was the password, and very soon tbe number of
empty disbee told a tale ol health and
plenty. A feature of tbe lunch was
tbe doughnuts—doughnuts with small
boles, and large luscious ontsides.
The doughnut bai been laid to be a
good aign of the timei. K tbe boles
are large and tbe rims small and narrow then times are dull and money
scarce, but if tbe boles are small and
tbe riniB (ull and (at then prosperity
is apparent. From tbe doughnuts
supplied by the Bowman Lumber Co.,
it is very evident tbat good times are
on the wing and prosperity preseut.
Tbe lunch proved a meal al fresoo, a
delightful social event, the worthy
brother Atkins as usual being to the
fore with jokes old and new, the joy of
tbe ladies and butt ol the men. A
pleasant diversion was canned by tbe
party being made to sit lor tbeir portraits, eome excellent pictures being
With a brief spell ol rest and ease
alter lunch a start was made Ior borne.
Words cannot fitly describe the last
stage of tbe tramp, never before was
seen such a merry crowd, all young
and in the prime of life, the snowshoers sped over the sparkling surface
ol the silvery snow, rapid time being
made and wbeu tbe outskirts of tbe
oity were reached shoe strings were
unloosed and tbo party, glowing witb
the stiff walk, the blood tingling in
the veins Irom tbe swift rush through
tbo frosty air, dispersed and wended
tbeir ways homeward, tired but happy.
To the Bowman Lumber Co. and
Mr. Jackson are duo much praise and
thanks lor their oourtesy in tho lavish

British Columbia is undergoing the

That it hardly behoores iiuy ol a?
Te talk aboat it, I ■:' as.
It is some time now since we
J heard of the Agricultural Society,
I and although the winter is not yet
over, it is high time, nevertheless,
to begin to get busy and think
aboul the arrangements for this
year. The Fair of 1908 was a distinct success and the experience
thus gained will stand us in good
■tead this year and years to come.
It is not a bit tou early lo go into
all preliminary detail-, for such
take considerable time to prepare;
the great fault last year being that
ii stall
or so we shall have the Dominion
Fair in Kevelstoke, consequently it
should be our chief object to further the interest, popularity and
success of our Annual Fair in order
that our prowess as an exhibition
city may go before this great event.
The earlier u start we make this
year with the Fall Fair tlie easier
it will be to carry it through. This
is it movement which means much
for Bevelstoke and her advancement, anil our people, one and all,
should evince the keenest interest
in bringing the Annual Fair lo
profitable account.
We are glad to see as announced
in the coast newspapers that the
government lias finally decided to
amend the timber laws this session
and has promised that the timber
men's request for better title and
longer tenure would be favorably
considered. This is a move in the
right direction, and the government
is to be commended for its foresight
in providing now such legislation
as will encourage the timber men
to conserve tlieir timber for the distant future by the a'doption of up-
to-date methods of forestry in the
management of iheir holdings. To
encourage the timbermer o adopt
the most approved of forestry meth-
tions would soon cense and a ie
feet system would lake its place
To encourage the license holder ti
outer into any such programme foi
the future the government wouh
have not only to lower the annum
license fee from year to year, bu
would also have to extend the lift
of the license in perpetuity, and ai
tlie same time keep down Unroyal ty fee to within reasonable
bounds. in proportion as thi-
licencu fee was lowered, so could
the royalty unstumpngc be proportionately raised, so as to meet the
reduction on a fair basis, and on a
sliding scale system such as by
gradually lowering the licence fee
at the rate of about 10 per cent,
per annum and raising the stump
age loyalty proportionately, the
one to offset the other. But if the
government should persist in exacting high licence fees and short
tenure, it would force the licence
bolder to cut bis timber and rid
himself of bis burden as quickly as
possible by abandoning his licence.
If the life of ilu- present licence is
noi extended for a longer period
than 21 years, then forest destruction will result—in fact we can
measure the life of our forests by
the life of our licences. However
we feel that the Covernment will
deal with this matter in a business

The New Water Act

Sut,—The Hon. Mr. Fultou, in presenting the new Water Act to the
House, has been gjotl enough to say:
"I have no wish under the present act
to injure any one if it is possible to
avoid it, anil only where the public
necessity absolutely demands it." He
also further said Hint "I am satisfied
thnt if the members of the opposition,

Revelstoke  District to be the
Great Distributing Point
Revelstoke people, as a whole, or
rather those tbat really take an interest in the welfare and progress ol
the city, want to eee the city take its
place among the Canadian cities ol
the West, and tbe way to insure its
growth and development is by a united
effort to (tive wide Bpresd publicity
to tbe advantages of tbe city (rom a
manufacturing, industrial aud residential point ol view. Tho Board of
Trade are taking a lively interest this
year iu the advancement of the ci y's
interests, ard has made nn nppe.ti
which amounts to an increasing: i tlort
to advertise the town and d atrlct to
the I eat advantage.
We are oonvinced llutt th tin- bus
arrived to push Revelstoke mid We-u
Kootenay to the front. We believe
that wc urn located in the heart of the
cream of Western Canada Wist
Kootenay lands have spoken lor themselves bv the marvelous yields ul frui'
in the past few years These lands
have proclaimed to the world tbat
they will be a veritable gold mine for
the larmor. As lur the City uf Revelstoke, wo heliove it will I o tbe national
diBliibuting point of tbo Interior and
adjacent torritory, and DO organized
elVort is being made, headed by Ibe
Board ul Trade, to lecure distributing
rati- (rom Revelatoke, which, II
brought about, will at onco result in
the establishment of many wholesale
bouses in our midst. Kovelstoke today is a great city in embryo. In the
near future Revelstoke should be a
second Spokane, in the heart ol a
great inland empire ol marvellous
productiveness. These convictions
have grown upon us and have been
loroed upon us by the development, ol
the peit few years.
Uur Board o( Trade has dune a
splendid work and deserves tbe commendation ot every citizen ol Revel
stoke; but it il our conviction tbat
West Kootonay and Kovolitoke havo
reached the second stage ol development. We have patted thu period ol
inlntioy and oolic. Wo aro developing

Finance Minister Shows B. C.
Progress in Fiscal Year
The Minister ul Finance brought in
the budget to the legislators last week.
According to tho estimates (or tbe
year ending March .list, 1010, the receipts ul the province will be $5,948,-
620.611, and tho estimates also provide
for an expenditure ol $6,615,798 11.
In his speech Mr. Tatlow defended
the financial policy ul tho McBride
government. Alter reviewing the
•toady and phenomenal inorcase in
the revenue since 11103, he poiutod tn
tbe liBiiennnic surplus ul tbe past year,
upwards ol a million aud a hall dollars, as a fitting culmination ol thut
policy put iulo practice Thii increase, ho stated, was largely derived
(rom tho exploition of natural ro
sources ol the province, notably from
lands, limber and minerals. Whereas
in IU04 thirty per cent, of the
total revenue came from income, personal and roal estate tax, these sources
now  constitute only   12J per cent, ol
the revenue.
Speaking of the use tu which the
large surplus uf the year had been put,
the minister pointed nut that $570, -
0.10 ul the outstanding $600,000 debenture! ol tho million dollar loan nf
I'.llll bus been redeemed, leaving unly
$21,0011 still niilHtaiiiling. In addition
to thia $100,000 in value ol tho 3J per
cent, dyking debenture! of tho province was .' ncured on the Loudon market lor $01,000. A part ol tho surplus
waa also used in undertaking sume ul
the mmo urgent public works iu the
pruvini ii, but the larger portion was
placid in the bank at interest.

wrestling, forcing Daily's shoulders to
the mat with a toe and bar hold,
After an interval of ten minutes, time

mettle After ;< abort span
the contestants closed on the mat
and a fair exhibition of wrestling
was given, neither man losing any
punts which would lell against bis
adversary. Matsuda with sever.I
clever moves, kept Daily bard at. work,
the latter getting out ol some very
difficult holds which the Jap lined on
him. Tlie second fall was made in 12
linutes 1" seconds by Matsuda with a
bar arm, forcing Daily to the mat liy
sheer strength, thus winning the
match for the Jap.
Daily put up good wrestling, but
i i- :. t | lite a match for the heavier
and better tr lined Jap.
