Advises British Manufacturers
Kvcryorte who knows Sir Gilbort
Parker knows thut be is an expert -
cnccd, wide-awake, observant man.
If It were permissible to apply "
slung er-.t expressive Western epithet
to a person of such importance, one
might well dub him a "live wire."
Few men possess so many marked
characteristics. He is an urtist, a
litterateur, a shrewd man and a politician. During his visit to Victoria
and Vancouver last year, he was
greatly Impressed with what he called the enormous strides made Binee
bis previous visit in 1890, He seems
to have beeu 'infected' with tho op
timistic fever, for he credits Van
couver with a present-day populati.ni
of 200,000-, But while he found many
things to arouse his enthusiasm, bc
also found one which occasioned h:..r.
much concern, viz., that English
manufacturers were not taking ad
vantage of the splendid market whi:h
new cities in Canada offered the enterprising trader. On his return ie
wrote a lengthy letter to the Morn -
ing Post dealing with tbis subject,
the substance of which is so important that it would bear reproduction,
Sir Gilbert is not troubled so much
about the establishment of local n-
dustries us at the tact that Canada
imports her manufactured goods s\>
largely from the States. He found
that the reason for this was that the
American system was to have local
representatives living in Cana'la.
These men arc highly trained salesmen, and they induce Canadian cub
tomers to carry a reasonably full
stock at all times. In order to lo
this, they keep their own warehouses
well tilled with such lines of goods
ub arc required for consumption iu
Canada, and they give preference to
Canadian orders in their muuufact -
ories in the States, so as to hod
the Canadian market. Thc English
munufucturecs, ou the other hand,
maintain vcry few resident agents in
Canada: they send their travellers
out at regular times, ard unless their
representative happens to bc in a
town at the pyschological moment
when a large order is available for
his particular line of 1 usiness, they
do not get it. There is another ffing-
lish system which does not work well
and that is to make use of a commission agent us a representative instead of a selling agent. The disul-
vantage is that the former probably
sells for half-a-dozen houses, and Lis
interest in any particular firm Is
thereby diminished. Such a man can
not be so fumiliar with his wares as
a man who confines himself to one
branch. The article contains a good
suggestion which is no doubt acted
on to some extent, but not as fully
as it might be, viz., that large firms
should have a representative aud
carry a stock, say, at Montreal and
on the Pacific Coast, nnd distribute
from these branches. Only in this
way can tbey bring themselves as
close to their customers as do the
American firms. The list of goods
•which Canadians might import from
the Old Country to a far greater intent would fill a column; in fact,
Canada offers a market for almost
anything which is manufactured in
England, but that market has never
keen properly exploited. The Week
thinks no one will deny that thc two
cardinal principles of Canadian trade
ought to be to manufacture everything possible within our own borders, and to import what we cannot
manufacture from the Old Country.
Sir Gilbert Parker was not dealing
with the fo'mer subject but his suggestions on the latter are well woe
thy of nttention.—The Week,

"The deceased came to her deut'i
by being foully murdered some r.imn
between Tuesday night, March III,
and the evening of April I, at ner
family residence, 1650 Pendrill street,
Vancouver, and her body cremated in
the furnace of the house."
The above is thc verdict of the cor
oner's jury Inquiring into the deatu
of Mrs. Cbas. J. Millard, whose char
red remains were found by detecti ;es
Jack Kong, a Chinese servant employed at the Millard residence, confessed this morning to the police
that he killed Mrs. Millard hy hitt -
ing her over the head with a chai \
afterwards cutting up the body anu
burning it in the furnace.
A,t the inquest Mr. Millard related
how he left his wife to go on busl
ness of thc C.P.R. to Victoria last
Tuesday and how he returned the foi
lowing night and fouml his wife mis
| sing. He related that he thought his
wife was with relatives and his suspicions were gradually aroused and
dreadfully verified. Throughout the
whole narrative the ligur" of Kong,

g) Easter Morning with an Eus-
•dC ter Noveltie from our varied

[a] - AT -
President Wilson scored a remarkable triumph in the adoption of the
lull to repeal the law exempting
from tolls coastwise American vessels passing through the Panama
canal. The triumph is all tbe more
remarkable in that it was scored in
the face of tbe strongest possible opposition from the Democratic leaders
in the bouse, including Mr. Champ
Clarke, speaker, and Representative
Underwood, majority leader, supposed the two most iniluential members
of the house of representatives.
As dispatches show, Mr. Ctiamp
Clarke was most bitter in biB hostility to the president's policy on this
question and in this even weut so fur
as to try to raise the anti-British cry
which a few years ago was the stock
in trade of all the cheaper of American politicians, as witness his dec -
I would rather see the Panama
canal blown up than give the Brit
ish people any control of it. It is
ours for better or for worse.
The    Mr.  Champ Clarke who    gave
voice to this declaration yesterday is
the same Mr. Champ Clarke who dur
ing  the  discussion  of  tbe  Canadian
American     reciprocity proposals     In
1911 declared in  the house of representatives:
I look forward to the time when
the American flag will fly over
every square foot of LritiBh North
America up tu the north pole.
From this quotation, and yester -
day's declaration it is safe to placa
Mr. Clarke among the spread-eagle
anti British element in the L'nited
States that is fast dying out , and
that will die out more rapidly still
with a broad minded and
sensible man like Woodrow Wilson at the head of affairs. Tbe support which tbe president received in
the house of representatives is probably a fair indication of the state of
American feeling on this question.
When last there was a Democratic
president of the United States such a
result would have been impossible
und it is fair to assume tbat public
feeling throughout the country at
that time would not have been behind it even  if it had  been given.
Times have changed however, and
today the two great branches of tbe
English speaking race are closer together than at any time since the
American revolution. And tbeir rcla
tions Bre destined to become more
closely knit together as the years go
on. There will come a day. and that
at no great distance when a man with
tbe sentiments and views of Mr.
Champ Clarke will hesitate to ex-
I rail them in public because of the
universal ridicule which they would
bring forth.
Prospects for the baseball seaBOn
locally are excellent and enthusiasts
cr.n rely upon witnessing some fine
games. The schedule has been prov -
iously published aud from a talk
which a "Mall-Herald" man had with
President L. Howson und Manager
Webb this morning it is a sure thing
that the proud record of the Revel -
stoke team last season will be equalled, if not excelled, this year.
Manager Webb has retained the services of the pick of his last year
players, whose willingness, not tosay
onxlety, to sta\ in Revelstoke Is
a pleasing tribute to the good feel
ing that exists between the community and the members of the team. In
f.ddition he hus secured a splendid
lot of capable recruits, of proved value, who should and dou btless will
materially strengthen the team this
The plnycrs already here are practising regularly on the Y.M.C.A.
ground, commencing each afternoon
at two o'clock. The men now practising include Webb, Derr, Pulley,
; Fisher, Burns, Oldfield and McCallis-
tir. McCallister and Burns are new-
men who have never been seen at the
game in Revelstoke. McCalli6ter is
rn outfielder from Calgary. He has
r-layed for Bome of the fastest teams
in and around Calgary and comes
here well recommended. Better still
be Shapes exceedingly VPell nnd shows
goon promise. Burns, who comes
from Vancouver here, shapes well,
He has played ,vith some of the inter
mediate teams at the coast and on
the prairie.
One of the most promising of the
new men is Fahanger, of Denver, Col
a third baseman who, in thc words
of  capable     critics,    "looks  good."
Without desiring to judge the new
men on the limited experience of
ticir actual doings which has so far
been afforded at practices it is undoubted that Fahanger is so far the
pick of the new players. He shapes
rxcellently. Go and watch him at
the practice match on Friday.
Deer played third base here last
season and will probably be seen at
centre field this season. Pulley, of
course,  is a fixture ns catcher, and a
good thing too. Fisher, last year's
second base and centre holder ts well
known by local fans. He will be
tried in the outfield thiB year. Webb
will pitch again, 'nuf said. He will
aiso manage the team. McGulre lute
ol Seattle, will be bore for Friday's
game. He is a short stop, and good
enough to play with Seattle in the
Northwest League. He is, according
to reliable reports, a first class man.
Henry /.ilka, Irom Spokane, a first
baseman who will also help Revelstoke this season, is a top notcher.
For the last two years he has played
with the team of the University of
the State of Washington. A very wol
come addition this, Ellorts are afoot
to obtain the services of Carl Lewis,
of Vancouver, who lias figured in
Northwest League games for Vancouver for several seasons past. He will
very materially strengthen the team
if he comes, as is almost certain now
He is a catcher of experience und
should prove a tower of strength to
Revelstoke. He was pinch hitter for
Vancouver last year.
Beamish, of Spoknne, another well
recommended recruit, is an outfielder
who shapes well in the opinion of experts who have closely watched him.
He is due here ahout April 1".
These facts speak for t-emselves.—
Revelstoke is assured of a good
tram, and that being guaranteed enthusiastic support will be accorded
the team. If anything the team this
year is now better than last year's
team, which is saying a lot, as the
new men nre players of professional
experience and proved worth. In
fchort the pick of last season's stars
are retained and new stars have been
At present the team is practising
on the Y.M.C.A. ground, but thc
match ground will be in first class
shape within tbe next ten days.
A practice match will be played on
the Y.M.C.A. ground on Friday, com
mencing at two o'clock, against tb,'
Pirates. All local supporters of the
game are cordially invited to be present on that occasion to cast their
eyes over thc new team. Tbey will
not be disappointed. In fact pros -
pects are bright, vcry bright, for a
11cord successful seuson.
It is expected that British Columbia will attract mure big game hunters this year than ever before, All
those identified in any way with the
outfitting of sportsmen, who come
from outside for the purpose of going
after mountain sheep, caribou, tbo
grizlly bear, etc., have thc same
report. More Inquiries are being received, and tho prospects are tbat
more splendid trophies will he taken
from thc hinterland of tbis Province
than in any previous season.
i Letters have come to tbe Provincial department from veteran guides
and sportsmen in the .".ii.ooet district bearing out this summing up
of the conditions and the prospects.
One writer, who has been a guide for
the past twelve years, and a hunter
In the province for thirty years says:
"There are more young deer and
sheep here now than at any time in
my recollection. I have never seen
so many deer as I did last Novem •
Another guide says: "I have been
a guide for twenty-five years, and 1
want to say that the deer, sheep and
goats have been increasing rapidly
since they were afforded protection
by the game laws. They are now
more plentiful than ever."
Notice has also beeu received that
several parties are already being organized to spend some months in tbe
British Columbia wilds. Most of them
have expressed a desire to go into
the Cassiar country, although there
waa some trouble last yeur with the
Indians. A repetition of this, how -
ever, is not expected.
Halcyon Notes
Hon. Price Ellison's lour
Tariff Changes Proposed.
The Minister of Finance has not
thought it bis duty to inuke a political budget speech. There is no attack on the record of his predecessors
md no attempt to protect himself
from criticism. Mr. White has made
u direct business statement such aB
should be expected from a muu entrusted with tbe financial udministru
tion of a great country. Leaving the
debate to others he hus uudcrtukeu
to disclose thc financial condition of
the government to explain the tarifl
cbangeB which he proposes, giving
the reasons for them, and the reas -
ens why certain other tariff propositions bad not been adopted.
The financial statement is one on
which another finance minister might
have claimed congratulations. On cur
rent account there is a surplus only
tbree times equalled in the history of
Canada. The revenue is larger than
in any previous year suvc one. With
a capital expenditure exceeding all
previous records the increase of the
debt is less than the decrease in 1913
so tbat the net liabilities are less
I y six millions than they were two
years ago. Yet $70,OO0,U0b has been
expended on capital account in that
l.eriod, by far the larger part to early out inherited undenakings.
;    The trade statement  's not unsat
isfactory. There is an increase over
the first billion-dollar yeur. Moreover the increase is wholly in exports
Canada has imported less than in
191:',, but has sent aboard Some $80-
(iiil,i nil i more of her own products
than in the previous year.
Some changes arc proposed in the
details of tbe tarifl, but the government stands absolutely by the nat -
ional policy. For thirty-six years
that tariff policy haB been maintained, steadily endorsed by both parties
in office, and by one in opposition.
Mr. White is not a high protectionist
I ut be is in harmony with his col-
kagues and with their party and so
well satisfied with the Fielding Tarifl
that in three sessions he has not
changed a fiftieth part of it. Thc
principal change proposed yesterday
is a reduction in the Fielding tariff.
It is fair to say that Mr. Fielding
also proposed to reduce the duty on
harvest by the reciprocity treaty.
The difference is that 'Mr, Fielding
proposal to take off two and a half
per cent., while Mr. White has made
a five per cent, reduction. It is also
worth noticing that Sir Lyman Jones
who has lately renounced the Liberal
party, is largely interested in thc
manufacture of harvesters.
The cither more important changes
in duties are increases in connection
with secondary products of thc iron
and steel industries. While billets
nnd other primary products remnin
as before, bars of certain sizes will
pay higher duties, large tubing is
placed with small in tho protected
list, as well as wire for nails      and
Hard times to do not seem to effect Halcyon. The hotel is taxed to
its utmost with guests and Mr. Boyd
is getting everything in readiness for
the coming summer tourist trade. He
expects to build an addition this sum
mcr to the hotel as well as enlarge
the present electric light plant, and
add enough lights to light the villas
to the rear of the hotel.
P. A. O'F.irrell and wife, of New
York, arrived Wednesday to spend a
few weeks at thc famous health re- |
sort before continuing their trip to
Vancouver, Victoria and Spokane.
Mr. O'Farrell is amongst the lending
j< urnulists of Canada.
Reid Johnston, C.P.R. agent, expects shortly to take a trip to Alas-
lu for his holidays.
Thc Halcyon Bottling Company are
t'nily making large shipments of
their famous mineral water to all
parts of British Columbia.

a thousand young chickens this coming summer, for market and hotel use

While the duty bas been increased on
some kinds ol  cut. (tone,  rough stone
heretofore dutiable, has been made
free. There are some additions to
drawbacks, which also assist home
industries. The National Policy is
evidently safe in the hands of Mr.
Mr. White has not met the views of
the advocates of free wheat and free
Hour. He has also given a negative
to those who sought a restoration of
the iron and steel bounties. The minister gives fairly tbe nrgument advanced to him for and against free
wheat. He does not consider the
case closed, but points out what is
Involved in the proposition, nnd announces that under thc present circumstances thc government is not
convinced thnt the duty should be
abolished. There are many reasons
why a step of that kind should be
delayed even If it Bhould he found
expedient to take it in the future.
One in that industrlnl conditions
would be seriously disturbed by micb
a departure, and thiB is not a good
time to turn artisans out of employment.
Everything points to a tremendous
fruit crop in the Interior this year—
tlie greatest in the history of the
province—according to the Hon.
Price Ellison, who has just returned
from s tour ol the Okanagan Valley.
This is expected for a variety of reasons. Climatic conditions have been
all that could be desired, more acre—
age is being utilised, and young orchards are constantly coming into
bearing. This happy situation, the
Minister states, will find the producers in a better position thau ever
to reap the reward which is justly
Mr. Ellison's main purpose in mak
Ing tbe tour was to stimulute the co
■ ip.nit.ve movement on the part of
the fruitgrowers' Association: and
he says that the outlook could uot
be more encouraging. The Minister .
first addressed :■. meeting nt Chilli -
wuck and then proceeded to Arm -
strong, Vernon and Suxnmerland,
where he also delivered addresses.He
explained the provisions ol the Agricultural Association Act, by which
thi growers may receive pecuniar; as
sistuncc when certain stipulations
have been complied With.
The whole of tbe Okanagan district
has now been organized from I'entic-
toii to twenty miles north of Sal -
mon River into one general selling
agency. This system does away with
;:.uking bis own prices and thus de-
ihr practice of the ind.vidual grower
demoralising the market. As Indicating the success of the movement, the
Minister m<entlons that the agency
j last year bundled 60 per cent of the
I u dice of the valley. Ol course, sev
eral larste companies, which have
' been in tbe business for several years
and are firmly established, are cou-
: tinning bus i
Mr. Ellison mentioned a matter
which well Illustrated a disability un
der which the growers woried in tho
put and which baa now i.'-i ii overcome. In thc Fall of 1913 there were
no less than 167 carloads of fruit
from all points on the railway tracks
nt Calgary at one time. This was
simply disastrous, for neither tbe
grower not the consumer benefitted.
Such a thing can never happen again
us lone as the central selling agency
maintains its organisation.
The returns for last yeai were most
satisfactory,  E was this the
esse in respect tei apples and pears,
as prices in excess of those obtained
by the growers In Washington and
Oregon  were obtained.
Mr. Ellison pointed out that a
great incentive to tbe co-operative
movement in this j In the
fact that the growers In Oregon,
Washington, and Ca ire      so
highly organised. The thii teen cents
duty which Canada maintains against fruit imported from th" l'nited
Statu mure than wiped out owing
to cheaper labor on the other side
of the line, and lower quotations for
lumber fr.im which  boxn are made.
■ rs that
tb^ ng as high as SO per
car in advertising purposes alone. It
will be seen that the Provincial grower must be up and doing if he wishes
to bold ins own tn tbl marketa
which are naturally his.
Tbe Minister  is of the opinion that
the  growers will never succeed in the
larger  measure  until   they    surround
themselves   with   st'.ck,   for  stork     is
■the bi 'essfui agriculture.

Mr. J. S. Dennis, iiBSiatunt to tho
president of the Canadian Pacific
Railway and in charge of tho de -
partmeut of Natural Resources of
that corporation with headquarters
at Oalgary, is en route to Ban Francisco where he will make final arrangements for the installation ol
the Canadian Pacific's exhibit and
headquarters lor the Panama Pacific
Exposition. Plans have been prepared for a very artistic structure to
houce the exhibit which will ho on a
very  extensive scale.
Mr.'O.K. McPherson, Winnipeg gen-
crul passenger agent of the C.P.R.,
arrived in Vancouver from Hnn Francisco where lie attended the meeting
nf the. transcontinental passenger ag-
ents to discuss rates for the exposition west of Missouri River points.
Arrangements were completed tor the
selling nf tickets by (averse routes,
and the belief is that practically every ticket s.ibl will provide for the
traveller returning to l-.is home by n
different route, Mr. McPherson is con
lident that the scenic attractions
that the C.P.R. has to offer in the
Fraser Canyon the Selkirk? and the
Rockies will compel the majority of
the travellers to go through Canada
at leant one way.
"There will be over three hundred
conventions in Ban Francisco during
the fair," said Mr. McPherson yestor
day. "This moans of course, that
the convention business this year on
the coasl   will  lent, a minimum,
"Bui it is predicted and apparently with much soundness that thero
will be over o million people go from
the East to San Francisco next year
There appears to be little doubt but
that the Exposition will be ready on
time. In fact it bus been officially
stated that the Exposition grounds
and buildin -: are eighty per cent,
completed now."
Mr. McPherson who Is recognised
..11 over the l'nited States as well as
in Canada, us one ot thc veterans of
his profession and one of the most
■ ii administrators ol the passen
ger traffic business thar. modern railway methods have produced, will remain in Vancouver t iday inspecting

Railroad construction work in various parts of the Northwest now under contract by Guthrie, McUougull
& Co. of Portland, will call for tho
employment within the next three
weeks of thousands of men, and will
necessitate the expenditure of mauy
millions of dollars.
Tbe principal project now under
contract by this company is the construction of the Kettle Valley Railroad in Southern British Columbia,
While this road is to lie only thirty-
live miles long, it must be built
through a mountainous country and
will require a heavy force of men.
"We will employ all the men we can
get," said Natt McDougall, bead of
the company. "Wc doubtless will bo
nhie in get men right on the ground"

The following is a sample of what
is discovered by the simple weighing
of milk and testing of samples. A
four year old cow gave in one month
92U pounds of milk containing 35
pounds fat. ln the same herd a five
year old gave only 330 pounds of
milk and 19 pounds ol fat. Thus the
lirs: cow gave more than the other
two combined.
This further fact is interesting;
this particular cow was sold by a
man absolutely Ignorant of her value
or dairy capacity. The present owner, through keeping individual record--., knows her better and would not
sell her for less than thirty dollars
more than he paid for her.
Another fact is worth careful attention; tli" total of the herd yield
fur a day or a month will never re-
\i.il these good Individuals. What
the owner needs to know for cor -
tain is obtained only from a record
of each COW be keeps. You can save
I and    good    feed  by  bestowing
tbem mi cows that you know arc
worth keeping; you will then be in a
posil on to keep your best cows and
will not lose money by selling good
cows cheap.

.  i;,  the     development of their

Prof,  T.W.  Gregory, of London has
been  busy  for some time past deal -
ing  with  the question   whether     the
earth  is drying up.    His conclusions
are here reproduced:
"Owing to the varied nature of tho
i vidence to bc considered, the extensive and scattered literature
whence much of the evidence has to
be gleaned and the contradictory opinions expressed by high authorities,
the problem whether the earth is dry
Ing up is hedged about with difficulties. Hut one fact does seem to me
to result clearly from tbe evidence ;
there have been many widespread climatic changes in late geologic times,
while in historic times there has been
no worldwide  change of Climate.
■•if we consider particular countries, such as Egypt and Palestine the
balance of expert opinion iB strongly
... favor of the view that there has
been no climatic change in either
'since the earliest existing records.
belief in a lesser rainfall in Palestine  has  been   fostered   by  the      oft
repeated comparison of the Hebrews
between tho stony wilderness of Sinai and the matured fertility of C'ann
an,   Hut it. may be concluded    from
! the  most   precise  tests  now  available
from the range of the date palm and
the Vine, and from the facts recorded by Old Testament writers, that
the climate of Palestine is the same
today as in the time of .Moses.
"Returning to the wider question—
geological evidence shows how the
passage from the climate of the glac
lal period to that of our own day
has proceeded on two main lines. In
some countries there has been a grad
Ual rise in temperature since the disappearance of the ice, accompanied
either by an increase or decrease in
bm dity. ; n . I bei countries the glacial conditions were succeeded by a
warm, dry period,  followed again by
""'.' conditions.
"Tbis Increased humidity charact-
. | res a; climates of Scandi-
n tvi . i'h • n an; . Hung ry, Roumania
the eastern parts of Africa from Nig
eria to Cape Colony, and there is
some evidence of the same change ful
lowing a dry post-glacial period in
England. As an increased rainfall
bas been demonstrated for so many
parts nf the wi'-'d, it is only natural to expert a compensating decrease
in ether districts; and there is acv
c irdingl] a pre dlsposll li a t.i accept the claim that central Asia is
suffering from  Increasing desiccation

"In spite of thc fact that there
lias been a tightness of money and
(ailing off of business pretty much
all over thc West, tbe West is the
place for tbe young man, the place
where there are more opportunities
than in the Middle West or the
Bast," said Mr. M.H. Foley, head of
the well-Known railway construction
tirni of Foley, Welch and Stewart.
Mr. Foley, with Mrs. Foley, is on his
yearly visit to the Pacific coast, having spent part of the winter in California.
The  western work of the firm       is
entirely    in    the  hands  of      Messrs. '
Welch   and   Stewart,  Mr.  Foley     ex- :
plained, while he, from his beadquar-1
tors in  St.   Paul,  Minn.,  directs    tho ,
ivork  in the Middle West.    Thc company has completed the G.N.R.  line
let ween  Fort   William and  Sudbury ,
and (here is little more railway construct ion  of magnitude  in  the Middle
Wesl  at   present, Mr. Foley said.
There was comparatively little rail
way construction in the Bast and
Middle West last year and there will
be less this year. The well-known
visitor expressed his optimism over
business conditions. He looks for an
early revival. Conditions in the Mid
die West just now nre good.
Mr.  Foley  believes  that    the    con- j
struction of the Pacific Great East - '
em from Vancouver to Fort, George,
and its projection into the Peace riv-
er district  will mean another steady
flow of immigrants from the    middle
states into the pew territory.  "It was !
too  hard  to get in  there  before,"   lie
explained      He does not think  imml- i
gration fell oil a great deal last year
from the year before, but predicts   a '
c insiderable  decrease    in    thc immi- |
gration  from  the States to the pnii-
ries  this   year.

There are even people An the Coast
lilies, who, whilst only too willing to
admit the destiny of their own centers, are still incapable of doing even
bare justice to that great Inland Empire, which in the last analysis Is tho
only justification for the cxistenco of
the entrepot business which alone supports the rainswept seaports of the
Pacific Coast of Canada.
The dweller alone the ocean shore,
whilst boasting of his prosperity,
which depends upon the handling of
traffic destined to he consumed in tho
Interior, is foolish indeed to attempt
nny other explanation of his own prosperity, save and alone that the vast
development of the inside of the continent is the very creation of the sea

molities by virtue of which his own
cities are being built.

traffic along  our railways  running   to
the   Pacific Coast, is ihe recent developments in the production of minerals
throughout  tbe     Interior    of    British
Foremost among these rank the coal
Bilver lead, galena, copper and other
in.ii. of tbe district of Kootenay and
the I low- Nesl Pius whilst the Sim-
ilkamoen and adjacent territory presently being op n ■ 1 up by new railway
construction is also commencing to
swell the output of base and precious
mentals. Under thc stimulating influence of this mineral output, prosperous mining towns and camps, peo-
plrj wiih the most capable and highest I'aid body of skilled miners to be
found In the Dominion, have sprung
into existence within the la^t ten
years. The-'e centers, are only tho
forerunners of the great wealthy cities which -o -oe>n as euffiolenl cupital
i- available, will arise as if by magic,
at thc strategetical point, which will
be the transportation centers oi the
vast, well-defined, bigh grade, mineral-
lsed regions which are now being located by prospectors and government
geologic surveys, throughout the lode
belts of the Interior of British Colum
Another of our infant, but destined
to bc gigantic Industries, is the
Fruit Growing business, thioughout
the sheltered fertile valleys of our
Interior. The vast numbers of people
whose prairie crops ol Golden Grain
wave over countless hundreds of miles
of land whereon it is impossible to
grow fruit, possess both the appctito
and the mean- where with lo satisfy
same; and in the near future the fruit
eating desire of a population of twenty millions of prosperous citizens of
the great Northwest, will have to ho
satisfied bj the products of B.C. Interior fruit ranches and  orchards.
But fruit growing is anly one of the
varied methods of wresting wealth
from B.O. valley soils. As the operations of the lumbermen take off one
valuable crop of produce, they are
succeeded by the mixed farmer, who
tears out the stumps of the forest-
growths, and re plants the products
of the market garden and mixed farm
The same insatiable market which
gapes open for the products of the
orchard, is waiting to swallow up the
produce of the celery and tomatoe
field, thc potato row, and the cabbage patch. In thc same manner as
the present dnv smiling fields an'l pastures of Old Ontario were hewn out of
the wilderness of but three short generations aeonc. so shall the fertile valleys and hillsides of British Columbia
blos'som as thc rose under tho efforts
of a race of pioneers and agriculturists, before whose labors, backed by
resources of science nnd money, unavailable to their forefathers of the Empire Loyalists, the terrors of tho western wilds are even now and before
Our eyes, being replaced by Iho boun-
teoiiH peace and plenty of a highly cultivated land.
In spite of every advantage of soil
r.nd climate which will bring the agriculturists In his dns of thoiisnn Is In
to our fertile valleys, thero will always remnin throughout the Interior
of  British   Columbia,  large  areas      of
timbered land, nnd which, under the
careful systems of reforestrution, and
protection now being introduced by
tho government, will stand for all
timo to come, among the greatest
timber producing areas in the civilized world. There is scarcely a prominent business man of Rovelstokn, or
any other interior town, who has not
iu the past made large sums ot 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
he gained by the wide-awake lumber -
men. workers and dealers of these dis
tri.ts, through the legitimate exploitation of the timber wealth of our
great province.
Go where you will, you will find no
better located point for tho site of a
city than Revelstoke. It is as nearly
as possible in the centre of that great
section oi British Columbia extending
for a length of SMI miles between tho
Crow's Nest and B.C. Southern railway easterns to the south and the
routes of the Grand Trunk Pacific
and Canadian Northern railways to
the north.
Prettily situated on tho 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
Railway, which connects with the palatial steamers of tho C.P.R. on tin
Arrow Lakes, and with the B.C. Sou-
thern, Columbia and Western, Crow's
N'est Pass and Great Northern Railway systems to the south.
As the construction of the Granl
Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern
railways to the north proceeds, nnd
these -ystems become extended into
the Cnno- River valley and the territory tributary to thc Big Bend of the
Columbia, they must seek connections
with the south, and Revelstoke will he
the point of junctions of the railway
systems of the future with those of
today as (hey traverse the ereat valleys which radiate east and west,
north and south from this city as
their common centre.
As proof of thc gigantic plans for
railway development centering on Revel toke as a great strategetical transportation centre, the Canadian Pacific
-ystem, Canada's premier transcontinental route, have voted the sum of
110,000,000 to be expended during the
year 1913 to 1018 iu double tracking
i heir mainline from Calgary to Revelstoke and Vancouver, this gigantic
work involving the building of a tunnel under the mighty Selkirks, the
rebuilding of the big steel bridge ac.
ross the Columbia at Revelstoke, an I
the laying of an additional set of steel
through the entire mountain section.
During the progress of this work, for
five years now rommenrxl, Revelstoke
will be  Ihe centre    and  pay    station,
i wdience most of the supplies will be
distributed to the tunnel gangs and
where the waee bill of approximately
312,800,000 will be disbursed and drcu
In addition to these vast schemes of
railway development, another project
of International Importance has recently been commenced, beinn nothing less
than the rendering suitable for navigation of the world's Seventh largest
river for the entire distance from Revelstoke to the Pa' ific ocean at Portland
Oregon. The U.S. government have
already spent $5,000,000 in work on the
lower Columbia, and the Dominion
Treasury, at the la-t Ottawa session,
voted a sum of $20,000 to pay the expenses of a survey and hydro'.-raphical
investigation, which is now actually at
work making a compl te chart of the
upper river from Revelstoke to the International Line. It is proposed to
provide a ten foot channel from Revelltoke clown the mighty artery of the
Columbia along which ■
easiest nnd natural trnfflc highway of
; the West, the timber and minerals of
B.C.. and the wheat of the N.irthwest,
■ ould be float'! a' — minium of cost
and labor, \in Portland to the Pacific
ocean. This route has alreidv i-cc'lv-
ed the unanimous backing .f 'he Procurers and Merchants of Alberta, as
i oired In their resolution nt the rcent
"Panama Grain Route" convention in
the City of Calgary wh-n the Oi lam-
bia  River  Grain  Route  was    officially
recognMd as ■. coming fa tor In the
(ran portatlon iltuatlon o' North America.
While Revelstoke thus ocouplea 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 tho Columbia
river and its tributaries north of the
city. Thi? expenditure involved in tho
Conversion of this timber into a marketable product will not full far short
of $'J75,00O,0OO.
Water power is plentiful In the vicinity, the city having harnessed one
stream to a capacity of 1,800 horao
power, whi' h is offered for industrial
purposes  nt 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 fruit-
growlng, poultry farming, dairying,
stock raising, and general agriculture
This land is capable of supporting a
rural population of 30,00(1 people.
Extensive and varied mineral deposits are known to exist in the ncigh-
borhood,  and nwait development.
Cradled amid beautiful scones of
mountain and glacier, forest-clad hill
and vale, river, stream and lake; favored with an equable climate, Revel
stoke is one of the most picturesquely located of Canadian cities and an
Ideal town in which to make a home.
It is well lighted, has a hieh pressure supply of pure water which can
be exten led to meet any future requirements, good drainage and sewerage, high class educational institutions in the way of public and high
schools',      a     Y.M.C.A.    with  a well-
j equipped gymnasium, two public parks
fair grounds, race track,     magnificent
! summer park on Mount Revelstoke
connected with th' .ity hy trail, nice
homes and gardens, and in fact all
the  modern conveniences that   go    to
I male a town attractive from a resi - I
dential point of vbw. (The great
siimmcr and tourist resorts of the
Poky Mountains are with.n a few
hours reach.) Good fishing may be
had in  many of the adjacent streams
( and lakes. Hunters will find here resorts of big game with reliable guides
at call.
One of th? most valuable assets of
the district is its climate. It is comparatively mild, e (liable according to
the seasons, Balubrious, bright aud
sunshiny throughout the greater part
of the year. The heat is not excessive in midsummer; the evenings are
always pleasantly cool. Tho winters
are not extreme, the temperature rarely  falling below  zero, and then not
exceeding ten degi   i>- low for a  few
elass in midwinter. The natural moisture is sufficient to make irrigation
unnecessary. A more bracing atmos -
phere ii would be difficult to find.
The Government records show sum-
mer and winter ranges of temperature
as follows:
Summer—July,  1909, Maximum  !S9 deg
July   1909,  Mean. 77  deg;   July   11109

The altitude of Revelstoke is 1,400
ie ■ t above sea level, and it is subject to Pacific Coast winds inlluence,
a guarantee of moisture and mildness
varied with fine and sunny weather.
Among recent developments at Revelstoke, and as additional proof of the !
energy and ability of its citizens und
iheir ultimate faith in the future of
tbis city and district, may bo mentioned.

Howjt is Dealt  with   in
In view of the fact tbat the unemployed problem is a live issue thru'-
cut British Columbia the following
interview with Mr. Robert E. Mansfield, American consul-general at Van
couver, who spent eight, years in tho
United States consular service in
Switzerland before assuming bis duties in this city, will prove of interest. His residence in the mountain
republic gave Mr. Mansfield an excellent opportunity to study cconamic
questions, aud bis views on the subject are therefore of value:
'In Switzerland the indigent unemployed are dealt witb as an economic
question," observed Mr. Mansfield.
"The Swiss act upon the theory tbat
a man who is unemployed is, if left
to himself, prone to become unem -
ployable, and that for a community
to allow anyone of its members who
is capable of work to remain unemployed is a public waste for the reason that as soon as he becomes a subject of charity he is a tax upon the
community, which has to support not
only the individual but also those dependent upon him. The purpose is
to assist the unfortunate unemployed
to secure work not only for
the sake of the individual, but
ulso in the interests of the state;
to prevent his becoming a tax upon
tbe community instead of a source of
income—a consumer instead of a producer.
"In inductrial Switzerland there is
no place for the idle. It is considered
the duty of the authorities to assist,
in every way possible, persona honest
ly seeking employment, and it is also
held to be their duty to punish the
work shirker and to force him to
earn bi3 breud before ho may eat it.
No toleration is shown to the loafer
hogging is prohibited hy law, and
vagrancy is classified as a crime in
the legal cod" of the confederation.
"A man may not deliberately join
the army of the unemployed and remain indefinitely in the rankB without even making an ellort to secure
employment, and in the interval be
constantly deteriorating into an unemployable. There Ib no restoring to
charitable Institutions no wandering
about the country extorting alms
from honest people while pretending
to be in search of employment.
"An unemployed person must make
a serious eliort to find work. If ho
does not,  the authorities will find it
ffi", which the exploitation of these
se-enic assets and tho building of the
promised C.T.R. hotel and Mount Rev
elstoke chalet guarantee for this city
an energetic campaign of advertising
and publicity  has been inaugurated.
Mrs. Schafer, the world renowned de-
srlptlve writer of thc Canadian West,

thc citizens will embark on a great publicity project, wherein those various Items will be placed before tho public of
North America, and in which scheme
the support of the C.P.R. and all Its
agencies, Is assured. These »re a few
of the reasons why clblUBns of Revelstoke and District believe in their
homo city, and explain the spirit of
optimism which prevades the air of
Revelstoke  and   surrounding   territory.
for him and of a kind that may not
be of his liking, and he is compelled
to perform the work assigned to him
11 be refuses he is placed in the
workhouse, Where military discipline
is maintained and where every in -
mate is required to work to the full
capacity of his strength, for which
he receives as compensation his board
and lodging with wages ranging from
11 to 10 cents per day. His stay in
thc institution depends upon his conduct and during his forced employ -
ment the state makes a profit on his
labor, as most of the institutions of
this character are so well managed
that they are sources of income instead of expense to the Cantons to
which they belong.
"The unemployed by casualty or
misfortune ure not classified with
those whose employment is due to
lack of industry or misfortune. As a
matter of justice and of .government
policy an effort is made to distinguish
between the two classes, so that each
may be dealt with according to its
"The man who is unemployed because of dissipation, incompetency or.
because he does not want to work, is
treated as a criminal and sent to a
penal institution, whereas the man
who is out of work in spite of an
honest endeavor to secure honorable
employment, is assisted without being subjected to penal servitude or
humiliation of any kind whatever.
"In some of the Cantons of Switzer
land there is in operation a system
of insurance against unemployment ,
in which persons who contribute a
certain sum per month, or by the
year, are guaranteed employment or
paid a weekly  indemnity for the time
; they arc actually out of work. In the
latter ease it is necessary for the insured to show that his unemployment
is not his own fault.
"This plan of insurance has never
become genera] or popular, however,
as it involves many details which
make it difficult for the beneficiaries
to secure the payment of the benefits
I "Thc Swi6s law, making insurance
against sickness and accident com -
pulsory on the part of thc employees
in industrial institutions obviates the
necessity for public charity In i
jority of instances where wage-earn -
ers arc deprived of their income by
reason of illness or accident. Under
the compulsory insurance act the expense is divided bet ween the employer and  the  insured.
' "This system is considered generally satisfactory. as the workpeople feel
more secure and are mi re contented
in thdr employment. There are
other systems by which employers or
employees can protect themselves
against the expense of medical treatment and supplies In Case of sick -
ness or accident.   By the payment of
la small annual fee to Hie society for
the protection Ol domestic servants

sponsiblllt} (or the care nnd treat -
ment of those enrolled upon its
j "There arc several institutions ln
Switzerland where employment is
furnished   to     deservfn*  persons    who
have b-ien unfortunate and who ,
through no fault of their own, are
temporarily out of work, where their
stay Is voluntary nnd where, in addition to comfortable accommodations
and good,   plain  fund,    they    receive
some compensation for their labor.
"About   twenty-five  years  ago   em-
1 loyment agencies     were  first estub-
. lished     in the    important    industrial
centres  of      Switzerland.      Municipal
\ interest  was soon  shown In  these  in-
! stitutions and hy l'.'Oi) several ot the
'larger  cities,   including   Zurich, Geneva, Berne,     etc., operated municipal
employment  bureaus. Iu  March,   1»10,
these otlicial institutions were united
into u national organization subsidized by  the  federal  government, called
the  Swiss Bureau of     Employment,
with bead offices at Zurich.
"It will thus be seen that the un-
dertaklng of supplying the needy un-
yed With work has practically
passed Into the hands of the federal
government. In Switzerland immense
mutual benefit is secured by this consolidation of employment agencies,
such as the interchange of informa -
tion in regard to the work market,
co-operation with private agencies,
and the special employment offices of
labor unions, and the furnishing ol
statistical  information."
