No Action to Extend Life Till
Next Session
Victokia, March 12.—No action
will be taken by the governmental
tbe present session upon the proposal to extend the life of the
special timber licenses. The government will await the advice ol
the forestry commission.
This announcement by the premier was the feature of yesterday
afternoon's session.
In announcing the government's
decision upon the question of timber licenses, the premier said:
"Before the business of the day
is taken up, I desire to make a
statement of considerable import
ance that is awaited with great interest by a large section of the pro
vince. 1 refer to the question of
the tenure of the special timber
licenses, it has been the subject
of considerable controversy of late,
and of several delegates which have
waited upon the government within
the past lew months with regard to
the timber industry in British Columbia.
"I desire to inform lhe house,"
continued the premier, "that the
government has decided that the
tenure of tliese licenses will, at the
next session of the legislature, receive the attention of the administration in the way of some provision that will make for the perpetuity ol licenses unlil the timber
is removed, but upon such special
lerms and conditions as the government may then deem prudent
and in the best interes of the province.
"We consider il wise to defer
action on this matter until we hnve
had the advantage of the advice of
lhe commission on this and similar
subjects about to be appointed.
So that when 1 make this announcement this afternoon it must
be understood that while the question is to receive the consideration
of the legislature at the next session, it must be upon such terms
as thought to be prudent nnd in
the interests of the province generally.
By Rail >to the Garden of the
The gradient railway up Mount
Revelstoke, as mentioned in our
last issue, is attracting universal
attention, and is the chief subject
of discussion among business circles.
The Bcheme iB feasible in every form
and would be a great means of advertising Kevelstoke and her scenic
wonders. The attraction for tourists and visitors would be unpar-
alled, and when tbe proposition
was fully advertised, the fame of
the "Revelstoke Gradient Railway,"
"By Rail to the Garden of tbe
CloudB," Mountaineering by Electricity," "A Glimpse of the Ethereal by Rail," "Mid Glacier and
Peak from Revelstoke, "Through
Clouds of Flowers," "The Electric
Arrow," or "A Mountain Climb
Into Space," "Juno's Flower Gar
den," or some other attractive bead-
lines would be the means of popularizing this city as the central
mountain resort of Canada.
It is understood that steps will
be taken to secure data for the proposed electric line and a decision
as to the construction arrived at.

wherein to live, "but those who want

Owing to the rapid growth and development of tbe Kootenays and the

ment of another Land Registry Otlice

Apropos of the recent death of a
valuable ting belonging lo a citizen
by poison, the question has been
raised as to the legitimate uses of
poisor for killing or destroying
noxious animals. According io
Chap. 151 of the Revised Statutes
of H. C, Section I, providing lor
the indiscriminate sale nnd use of
poisons, it is ordered:
" That every person who shall
place nny poison outside of his own
buildings or outbuildings for the
destruclion of noxious animals or
for any other purpose whatever,
shall give notice to all persons or
families residing within one mile
of the place where such poison is
used, by posting noticu- in three of
the most public places within one
mile of where the said poison in
put out."
From what we can gather certain
citizens have heen using strychnine
for the purposes nf catching coyotes
and whether it not they have complied with the law remains to he

those incurred .-..me years ago by the
Turf Club, which were being paid off.
The society has excellent assets in the
lease of the exhibition grounds and
the extensive improvements in "on-
neotion with it. A committee waa
appointed tt. tabulate tbe society's
assets, its value iu improvements ou
the fair grounds, and if possible put
into shape the original stock sheet
and list of stockholders. Owing to
the slender attendance, it was tlecided
to postpone the election ol officers

Of Canada's Wild Lands Needed

Due of the ^.t'eutrst if tl- lor lie
present and future limber ml inistm
lion ul n.i- cuiintry is reasutuibly cor
leet infill nut'ion ns tn the f rests ol
Cuiisd i. I i . ,r ex',-nl. i he smnunl of
timber i.i tbem, tlie rate ol growth
aud ' a vaiiuus oilier ipjestions rel t-
ing tu tbe amnunt uf timber which it
is sale tu take from tbem without impairing tbe "capital stock " At present, calculations as to even the acreage of the forests of the Dominion sre
largely guess work; and, until more
accurate information is obtdned as to
this question, it is scarcely possible to
inaugurate a scientific and businesslike administration of the forests of
the country as » nhnle.
It is just these and si tui lur questions
thst have been takui up by the U, 8
''Conservation Commissi .n," appoint
«d by President Roosevelt lust May.
Since its appointment this commission
has been bard at work gathering information as to the resources of tbe
United States and the best ways ol
using these so as tu give the greatest
aniouut uf services to the nation. Not
only have the lurest rtsourceB lieen
cumputed, but also those ol the mines,
the streams (for purposes ol water
power and   transportation)  and   soils.
In the second week of December
tbe committees appointed to pursue
these investigations met iu conference
with ibe governors ul the several States
at Washington and presented their r -
Some similar stock-luk nj ur inven
tory of natural resources would seem
wise on tbe part of Canada as well. It
would be even mure timely bere, lor
Canada has not yi t re. chtd the state
of material development that the
United Stales has, aud her resources
have not yet been dissipated tu the
same extent. In older tu secure wise
administration, a far fuller knowledge
of uur resources is necessary, aud
among the resources the (.nests take a
prominent place.
The ideas which Canadians hold
witli regard to their northern forests
are based largely un reports brought
back by travellers along ihe chief
water courses. Naturally the best
t un lu r. lies tilting miter courses, and
there is reasun to bii-pict that the reports ul these travelleis h-ve been unduly optimistic. Many in.-tauces can
be given whete lumbermen ai d f revere have found to their c st that is i-
mates of timber lauds bused on the
timber found along streams have bi en
much exaggerated. Moreover, in ihet-e
very regions, the litnler is said, bj
those who bave explored the country
at some distance frum the rivers, to
become smaller and more scattered
Whit is needed is that men wiih
s ime knowledge uf timber estimatii g
be sent out tu explore the country and
estimate the timber along routes other
than those most travelled, giving
special attention tu the timber nt
some distance Irom the livers
The explorations made in Northern
Ontario in the summer ol 11)00 illustrate in some sort tiie kind of exploration necessary for tbe whole Do minion
Full and accurate rtports uf such explorations will serve to clear up much
of the haziness that uow attaches to
the timber ami other resources of tbe
less known parts of the Dominion.
Probable Reorganization —Invaluable for B. C.
The Fruit ft Produce Exchange uf
B. C, Limited, has gone into liquidation, the sheriff being placed in possession uf the office property, etc
Tbe exchange has been running
witb practically no capital, tbe various
district members never being called
upon to put up the money, couse
.piently the running expenses exceed
log the revenue trom cummissinns,
etc., were in excess and tbe business
failed, principally, however, on uc
OOUDt nl the lact that the Iruit gruw-
era never actctl up tu tlieir contracts
to deal only through tbo exchange.
Tbe situation would have been totally
different if the growers bad stood behind the central I \change.
The Cnldhin .im Packing Co. and
the Okanagan exchauge, wo understand, brought about ibe climax.
The sheriff's sale is advertised fur
Maroh 17'b.
It is more tliu.ii likely, however, that
the exchange will be reorganised, as
the necessity for a central exchange lur
tbe growcra bas been recognised
Moreuver tbe wbuleaole bouses have
stated tbat tbey would only handle
B. C. fruit through a central exchange
and not bother with individual gruw
\t tbe recent convention held in
this city wbicli was attended by the
members ol the exchange, 0 1'. 11 officials and wholesale Iruit houses,
representatives, all matters relating to
the possibilities, tbe advantages and
DOOeslltlei ol a central exchange were
discussed and the reorganization
unanimously decided upon
