Mr. D. A. Thomas's  Plans
The present American visit of D.A.
Thomas, head of the Cambrian Coal
Company, is Baid by the "Morning
Post" to huve for its object the safe
guarding of British coal interests,
threatened by developments which
will follow the opening of the Panama canal.
Mr. Thomas is convinced that in
the neighborhood of Panama, American conl will prove much more marketable at an economical price than
in the Mediterranean trade, which
American operators have made several attempts to capture, and that if
that advantage is strengthened by restrictive American legislation, it
may lead to the establishment, in
West Indian waters, ot a monopoly
in American coal even more exclusive
than that now virtually held by British coal in the Mediterranean.
Mr. Thomas' plan, us indicated, is
to extend bis interests to those Canadian und American coul fields pro-
duclng coal adaptable for export.
British, as well as continental capitalists nre associated with him. He
has obtained options on practically
undeveloped mines providing steam
coal, yielding a thermal efficiency as
great ns Welsh coal. His view as to
thc competitive importance of Pocahontas, West Virginia coul, is
strengthened by extensive preparations made by Americans in the way
ol coaling depots on Panama canal
route -,.
Mr.   D.A.  Thomas, the Welsh    coal
magnate, arrived on     the Lusttania
from   England.   He  intends  making a
Hying  visit to the Pacific coast     to
discuss with  Vancouver and Seattle
men plans for the construction of the
railroad   which he expects to    build
Irom the mouth of the Nans river to
the Groundhog coal fields, and thence
into the Peace River country.     The
charter for the railroad has already
passed the railway committee of   thc
Canadian House of Commons.      Mr.
Thorn.is expects to spend three weeks
on this side of the Atlantic.
The two despatches above, taken in
conjunction, point to a highly important scheme for the development
of Northern British Columbia. Mr.
H. A. Thomas, who is now on his
way to Vancouver, is thc largest individual coul operator in thc world.
Last siinimer be und other eminent
Welshmen visited British Columbia
and Investigated the coal fields oi the
province. The outcome was the raising ..f capital and the application Ior
a charter torn railroad to tap the
greal Groundhog coal fields in the
N'aaa Valley, The Groundhog coal is
said to be of excellent quality, much
resembling the steam coal which has
Will, a  (anions.
Mr.  Tin,inns has    been studying the
effect   which the opening of the Pana-
ma canal will have on this trade and
has evidently decided that there will
be an  Immense and constantly grow-
Ind demand for coal at Panama   for
vessels- passing    through    the    great
■vaterwi ■      Pres imably his intention
to make a bid for this trade   and

Tariff Revisions Effects
Siuce the new tiirifl revisions
brought into etlect lust autumn by
the United States government have
beeu in operation, the exports Irom
British Columbia  have been doubled.
Announcement to this effect was
made by Mr. Robert H. Muusheld,
United States consul-geiiei'ul at Vancouver.
In order to cope with the extra ex
port liusiuess which has resulted Irom
the elimination and reductions in the
duties on British Columbia commodities, it lias beeu (uund uecessury for
the Vancouver cunsulur branch .to ac
quire additional oilice nccoinniodatiou
and to rearrange the quurters to facil
Itate the transaction of commercial
The increase In the business rcla -
tions between this province and the
United States was reflected in the
comparative statement published    in
Hi.' Province early in January,showing the amount ol exports up to De-
Oember 31, Later returns show that
the exports have been practically
doubled dining the period that the
new tarifl provisions have been operative.
The greatest gains are noted iu
the figures tor shipments ol shingles,
lumber ol different classes, wood
pulp, fish, ore and bullion. It is the
general opinion among those in touch
with the lumber situation that the
placing ol shingles on the tree list
has Imparted a big stimulus to tbe
InJustry in British Columbia.. Much
activity in the export trad; bus been
irt'iiifested in the Kootenav, Boundary and other mining li c. .r.ln with
in the jurisdiction of 'ho Vnncouvei
general-consulate, while all along the
const the shingle industry lias been
given an  Impetus.

Friday, March 13, is Salmon Day in B.C.
This will interest everybody. How the Salmon
we sell are caught and how it is handled
in the Canneries.
HOW CAUGHT —In British Columbia salmon lor canning purposes are caught or taken in seines, fill nets,
traps, or by troll fishermen. They first are delivered to
certain pointB or buying stations adjacent to tbe fishing
banks, and from there taken to the canneries by last
power boats. Here the heads, fins, tails, scales and entrails  are moved by machinery.
After'being thoroughly cleaned, washed and scrubbed,
tho salmon paBses through gang knives and is cut into
proper sized pieces for the can, and then fed into the filling machines which automatically fill the cans, or the fish
is tnken by hnnd flllois,  who carefully All each Can.
The empty cans being fed to thc fillers by conveyors,
which carry the cans in a continuous line from the salt
table. The contents nf each can is one pound of fresh
salmon and one-quarter ounce of refined salt (one hnlf-
pound cans, eight ounces of salmon and a proportionate
quantity of salt). No other Ingredients whatever being us
ed. After being filled I lie cans are inspected or passed
through   an   automatic  weighing  machine,  then  run    thru'
the can washing machines and then through the topping
and the soldering machines. The cans are then placed in
cooler trays, ond a Vent which has been left in the top,
soldered, after which they are submerged in hot water to
test for leaks, and cans showing air bubbles arc immedi -
ately removed and re-soldered while still hot. The cooler tray of cans iB then placed in a retort nnd steam cooked from 40 to 60 minutes, under a stenm pressure of ten
to twelve pounds, with n temperature of about 250 degrccB
P.H. After this cooking the trays are removed and a
small hole or vent is made in thc top of each can, to allow thc surplus steam, gas and water to escape, this
second vent hole is soldered while the can is still hot,
therefore all salmon prepared under this process, hnving
two soldered vent holes in the top of can. Under what
is known as the soldcrless or Sanitary enn, which is fust
taking the place of the oil style cans, tbe second venting
is not necessary, therefore no soldered vent hole appears
on the top of such cans. The salmon is thin given a
second cooking in the retorts, at a temperature of from
-40 to 200 degrees F.H., which softens the bones and completes the sterilization ol the fish bo that as a food product it is absolutely pure and hygienic.
Salmon is usually Canned in three Bizes or styles ol
packages:—One pound tails, one pound flats and one hnlf
pound flats, however, the shape of the can does not signify  any  particular guide or quality of salmon.
Some facts about grades:— The principal grades packed in British Columbia are:—
SOCKEYE—This  is the highest  grade of    salmon  packed.
It is a deep red Salmon rich in oil nnd is parked right
Up  the roast   at  Suitable    locations  fr.ti.      the    Kiaser
Hiver to the Naas River.    The   quality   fariM   slightly
with    tbe  locality—Fraser and  SIU I lie best be
ing considered   as equal.
RBDSPRINQ - This salmon, although red. is not  .uiitc as
deep in color as the lockeye and the ..il is not as rich.
The salmon is, however,  of a very fine flavor.
i'OHOK-This  salmon is  of a   medium  red   color  and      although not very rich in oil,  it  is a firm and good  fish.
PINK    This  salmon  is  pink   in color as Indicated  by    the
name  but is of very good  flavor and  stands well  as a
good  lish  having  a large percentage of food  value.
CHUM—This  iB  the  lowest  grade  of salmon   packed,    and
is  almost  white   in color.
Canned Salmon is usually rated ln the order given
above and one should use their own discretion in select -
ing the particular gr."le desired, as the main difference is
in the color und Savor and amount of fat or oil contained  in the fish.
Nabob Salmon is the finest grade of Sockeye

The resolution was presented to the

amendment to the effect that labor
ought to be considered in regard to
the selection of at least one of the

"While British Columbia may hold
strong views on the subject ol senatorial reform, said the Premier, "until such time as the Canadian Parliament and people decided on specific
actio,i in that direction we would be,
under our constitution, obliged to

extent by the second chamber. While
in the general mind there is far from

The inhabitants of British Columbia
are otten accused by those ignorant of
the vast resource!! of Canada's premier
province, of being biased in their forecasts of the future wealth and population of the province, and especially in
regard to that section known as THE
There arc even people dn the Coast
cities, who, whilst only too willing to
admit the ilesiiny of their own centers are still incapable of doing even
bare justice to thnt great Inland Empire, which in the last analysis is the
only justification for ihe existence of
the entrepot business which alone supports the rainswept seaports of the
Pacific Coast of Canada,
The dweller alone: the ocean shore,
whilst boastin.' of his prosperity,
whi.-h depends upon the handling of
traffic destined to be consumed in the
Interior, is foolish indeed to attempt
any other explanation of his own prosperity, Bave and alone that the vast
development of the inside of the continent is the- very creation of the sea
and railway born transferring of com-
mo lilies by vir'ue of which his own
cities are being built.
One of the greatest direct causes of
traffic along our railways running to
the Pacific Coast, is the recent developments in the production of minerals
-throughout tbe Interior of British
Foremost .■imnnj th'~e rank the coal
silver lead, galena, copper and other
mines of ihe district of Kootenay and
the Crows N.st Pa-s whilst the Sim-
ilk mieen ami adjacent territory presently being o < n-1 up by new railway
construction is also commencing to
■swell the output of base and precious
mentals. Vnder the stimulating influence of this mineral output, prosperous mining towns and camps, people 1 with the most capable and highest p.iid body of skilled miners to be
fomil in the Dominion, have sprung
into B.xisten e within the last ten
years. Th'-'e '-enters, are only the
forerunners of the great wealthy cities which -o -oon as suffi.-ient .-apital
is available, will arise as if by magic,
jit the strategetieal point-which will
be thc transportation centers of the
vaat, well-defined, high grade, mineralised regions which are now h>-ing located by prospectors and government
egeologic Burveys, throughout the lode
\ieV< of the Interior of British Columbia.
Another of our infant, but destined
to be gigantic industries, is the
Fruit Growing business, throughout
the -h.ltered fertile valleys of our
Interior. The vast numbers oi people
whose prairie crops of Golden Grain
wave over countless hundreds of miles
of land whereon it is impossible to
grow fruit, possess both the appetite
and the mean- where wi'h 10 satisfy
same; and in the near future tho fruit
eating desire of a population of twenty millions of prosperous citizens of
the ere.it Northwest, will have to be
satisfi.sl by the products of B.O. Interior fruit ranches and orchards.
But fruit growing is anly one of the
varied methods of wresting wealth
from B.C. valley soils. As thc operations of the lumbermen take of! one
valuable crop of produce, they are
succeeded by the mixed farmer, who
tears out the stumps of thc forest-
groWthl, nnd re plants the products
of the market garden and mixed farm
The samo insatiable market which
gapes open for the products of the
orchard, is wailing to swallow up the
produce of the celory and tomntoe
field, the potato row, nnd the cabbage patch. In the same manner ns
the present dny smiling fields nnd pastures of Old Ontario were hewn out of
the wilderness of but throe short generations a'_!Oiio. so shall the fertile valleys ami hillsides ot British Columbia
blos'soin as the rose under the efforts
of a race of pioneers ftnd agriculturists, before whose labors, barltod by
resources of idinos and money, unavailable lo their forefathers of the Empire Loyalists, the terrors of tho western wilds are even now and before
our eyes, being replaced by Iho bounteous p.aee nnd plenty of a highly ciil-
i.. .'.I   laud.
In spits of every advantage of soil
r.nd ellma'e which will bring the ag-
riculturlsti In his lens of th<msnn Is lo
to our fertile valley., Ihere will al-
wiivi remain throughout thi Interior
of  Urili h  Columbia,  large areas     of
timbered land, and which, under the
careful systems of reforestation, and
protection now bedng introduced by
the government, will stand for all
time to come, among the greatest
timber producing areas in the civilized world. There is scarcely a prominent business man of Revelstoke, or
any other interior town, who has not
in the past made large sums of money
and aided the development of the country, by helping in some manner to
get this timber out to the waiting
markets, and in the future as in the
past, ten millions of dollars will
be gained by the wide-awake lumber -
men. workers and dealers of these dis
tricts, through the legitimate exploitation of ths tisiber wealth of our
great province.
Go where you will, you will find no
better located point for the site of u
city than Revelstoke. It is as nearly
as possible in the centre of that great
section oi British Columbia extending
for a length of 350 miles between the
Crow's Nest and B.C. Southern railway .-'ystems to the south and the
routes of the Grand Trunk Pacific
and Canadian Northern railways to
the north.
Prettily situated on tbe Columbia
river where it is crossed by the main
line of the Canadian Pacific railway,
it is also the junction with the main
line of the Arrowhead and Kootenay j
Railway, which connects with the pal-
atial steamers of the C.P.R. on the
Arrow Lakes, and with the B.C. Sou-,
i hern, Columbia and Western, Crow's
Nest Pass an 1 Great Northern Railway systems to the south.
As the construction of    the    Granl
Trunk  Pacific and  Canadian Northern
railways   to   the  north  proceeds,     and
these systems  become  extended      into
the CaitO' River valley and Ihe terri- (
lory tributary to the Big Bend of the
Columbia,  they must seek connections
with the south, and Revelstoke will be
the point of junctions of the railway j
systems of the fufure with    those    of.
today as they traverse the great val-,
leys    which radiate    east and     west, |
north  and  south  from    this city    as
llirjr common centre,
As proof of thc gigantic plans   for
railway development centering on Rev-1
elstoke as a  great strategetical transportation centre,  the Canadian Pacific
system, Canada's premier transcontinental route,  have voted    the sum     of
J10,0011,0(10  to be expended during the)
year   1913  to   1918 in  double  tracking
their mainline  from  Calgary  to Revel-)
stoke  and  Vancouver,    this    gigantic;
work involving the building of a  tun-i
nei  under the    mighty    Sclkirks,    the
rebuilding of the big steel bridge    ac.
ross the Columbia at Revelstoke, an!
the lnying of an additional set of steel
through  the entire    mountain section.'
During the progress of this work, for.
five years row commenced, Revelstoke!
will Ite thc centre    and pay    station,!
whence  most  of  the  supplies    will be |
distributed    to  the tunnel    gangs and:
i where the wane bill of approximately

In addition to these vast schemes of
railway development,    another project
of International importance has recently ben commenced, being nothing lesB
than the rendering suitable for naviga- ;
lion of the     world's Seventh   largest
river for thc entire distance from Rev-'

work  mnking a complete chart  nl  the
upper river from Revelstoke to the International    Line.   It in  proposed    to
provide „ ten foot channel from Revel-
stoke down the mighty artery   of   the
Columbia along which
easiest and natural traffic highway of
.the West, the timber and minerals of
B.C., and the wheat of the Northwest,
could lie float*-! inimum of cost

While Revelstoke thus occupies an
exceptionally strong position as a
traffic emporium, its outlook is still
brighter from an industrial and manufacturing point of view. There are!
1,800 miles of timber on the Columbia
river and its tributaries north of the
city. The expeaditure involved in the
conversion of this timber into a marketable product will not full far short
uf $-75,000,000.
Water power is plentiful in the vicinity, the city having harnessed one
stream to a capacity of 1,800 horse
power, whi h is offered for industrial
purposes at low rates.
in the valleys tributary to Revelstoke are about a quarter of „ million
acres of land of good quality, and
which, when cleared of timber, and
cultivated, is well adapted for fruitgrowing, poultry farming, dairying,
stock raising, and general agriculture.
This land is capable of supporting a
rural population of 30,000 people.
Extensive and varied mlnernl deposits are known to exist in the neighborhood,  and  nwnit  development.
Cradled amid beautiful scenes of
mountain an 1 glacier, forest-clad hill
and vale, river, stream and lake; favored with an equable climate, RevelBtoke is one of the most picturesquely lo atcd of Canadian cities and an I
ideal town  in which to make  a  home.
It is well lighted, has a high pressure supply of pure water which can
be extended to meet any future re -
quirements, good drainage and sewerage, high-class c'lucai ional institutions in the way of public and high
schools', a Y.M.C.A. witb a well-
equipped gymnasium, two public parka
fair grounds, ra"e track, magnificent
