Fire which broke out in the lumber
yards of the Dominion Sawmill company, Three Valley, at an early hour
this morning, destroyed the entire
stocks of lumber. The mill was saved with great difficulty and this was
largely due to the pre).apt action oi
the night watchman, Archie Rutherford, who was badly burned in his
efforts to check the tire..
The cause of the tir> is unknown.
The loss is estimated at §100,000 and
is fully covered by insurance.

Lumber Export Trade
The department ol trade aud com
lueroe Iihb been making an exhaust -
ive inquiry into the foreign market
for Canadian lumber, and particularly the British Columbia product, in
view of the expected opening of the.
Panama Canal, the trade commissioners in Great Britain and through
out the world have been asked to
make a special report on the subject.
U. H. Boss, trade commissioner to
Australia, writes: "Exhaustive*; iin -
quiries  have been  made  in  Melbourne
i i nil Sydney with a view of ascertaining why British Columbia exports of
Douglas lie to Australia are decreasing, while shipments from the Pacific Const ports of the United States
have substantially increased. Taken
as a whole, the importing of Douglas lii into A>ustralla from the l'nit-
iil Slates and Canada has for some
l line heen unsatisfactory business to
the Australia trade. Many of the
large saw millers in Australia have
recently ceased importing cargoes.
'Ihey have gone out of the cargo business, as they have found it pays
them better to buy in parcels or part
cargoes, often when steamers are
actually  on the voyage.
I "The cause of the change in the
olel established procedure is simply
that the American shipper has found
it more profitable to gamble on the
freights than to make a profit on the
lumber Itself. The bulk of the Douglas lit- comes to Australia on time-
chartered   steamers.    Every   day's  de-
| la,\ counts materially, either in load-
irg, bunkering or discharging, and
because the United States ports provide quicker facilities foi loading
than British Columbia ports, it makes it more profitable for the shipping or selling brokers to load cargoes in Washington and Oregon
Should Have Good Chance.
He says the pressing needs at British Columbia ports are better facilities for the quick loading and hunk-
'i coaling at Seattle coast rates. He
adds: "In the opinion of the Sydney
Importers it only requires a series of
regular supplies of British Columbia
Douglas fir in the chief Australian
markets to establish a name for its
quality and rutting. This should cre-
ilte, in due time, a demand for Brit-
len Columbia lumber (as apart from
ll'uget   Sound   and   t.he   Columbia   riv-
I er) that  would not require a continuation  of the subsidy."
The acting trade commissioner   at
j Leeds, Eng., says: "There is a Concensus 'if opinion that tbe opening of
the Panama Canal will prove decidedly advantageous to the lumber export trade of Uritish Columbia In expediting shipments to this country.
The cost of transport would be reel need, ind thus lower the price of
lumber to the buyer, and this, it is
expected, will induce him to use the
wind more freely, but any great demand will be h matter "f somt time
In coming to a head."

Raising of Cattle
Vital to Province
"1 never have believed and I don't
believe now that five-acre plots of
land for agricultural purposes can
ever be a success and I would remind you that the smallest holding
oliercd by the British Columbia government for pre-emption is forty ac-
ics—and that is little enough, says
A.H.B. Macgowun, M.P.P. He pointed out that the raising of cattle was
vital to the province in view of the
system of meat trusts prevailing here
and such ruislng could only be done
mi farms of reasonable size. There
was too much speculation in tb.? necessaries of life.
He laid emphasis upon the fact
that the British Columbia government was throwing open pre-empt -
ions at Fernie and Cranbrook and
elsewhere in the province and quoted
from a very complimentary article In
the Seattle "Post-Intelligencer," referring to this action of the government. He referred to the-"pernicious
system of location hy agents and
thought it a mistake. He spoke at
length of the wise action of the gov
ernment with reference to liquor r.r,d
social problems, expressed a hope
that the fisheries would finally bo
placed in the hands of the province,
nnd quoted the reported statement, of
a prominent Socialist with reference
to the report of the Labor Commission to the elfect that if that report was acted upon ' we Socialists
can go out of business iu British Columbia."
It has been frequently maintained,
says the Kamloops Standard, by
mining men of note that tbe Kamloops camp is composed of some of
the best mineral properties in the
west, only lacking capital to ' more
fully develop them. This being provided, there would be a big impetus
given to mining in the district, tbe
various propositions to be handled
being likely money makers. One of
these exceptionally rich properties
lies on the north side of the Bulmnn
lease on the government road in
North Kamloops, the claims being
celled the "Imperial." Samples brought into town last Saturday show-
rich native silver in symetite rock
to a width of 150 feet of which there
is a large quantity, the rich metal
being of high grade. These samples
also showed good percentages of gold
and copper. The "Imperial" is on
the same ledge as the Batchelor
claim, and outcropplngs show at different  points for over fifteen  miles.
The "Imperial" is only one of several other valuable claims in that
vicinity and demonstrates thnt, with
more capital Kamloops will be a noted mining camp in-the near future.

Canada possess at thc present time
the best opportunity in her history
for the encouragement of foreign capital, especially from Great Britain
and the United States. In thc former country, thc Chancellor of the Exchequer has just announced a budget
which calls for upwards of one bil -
lion dollars— an extraordinary large
! sum of money to be raised in a single
year. The land laws, insurance schemes and other social legislation put
into effect by Mr. Lloyd George are
causing a considerable amount of
British capital to seek investment
abroad. In the past, Canada has
been regarded as a favored land, and
and if proper precautions are taken
by 'Ins country, there is no reaso'i
why we should not continue to attract large amounts of British capital.-  Montreal Daily  Journal of Com

Mack, who is a stranger, has made
friends since his arrival and their
ire quite a few who figure him too
old a general for the local boy. Ev-
ans, who has trained harder than ever before is saying little but letting
Ms many admirers do the talking for
bim, and though Bobby will be outweighed about seven pounds this
«'oes not seem to worry him. Both
boys have considerable at stake in

loughby has promised the winner a
chance at Eddie Shannon, the great

The eames of the preliminary league are becoming more interesting.
1 he fire hall defeated the business
men last Wednesday evening, but
when Manager Woodland gets right
into the game and has his team properly organized, the manager of the
fire hall, Haug, will find it difficult
to quench the spirits of thc business
men. All business men interested in
1 aseball are requested to make it
known to Art so as to avoid any
delay when the regular schedule begins.
Wednesday night's game went four
ii Hints and ended four to one in
favor of the fire hall. E Burridge
pitched a great game for the fire hall
ivhile 0. Corson for the business men
not only held down thc runs but scored the only run for his team.
On Friday evening last the railroad
boys met the business men in a spectacular  game  "f baseball,  some fast
and furious plays were made.   Manager Lyons did not play as he had not
thoroughly recuperated from the last
game,    and managed his   team   from
the bench.   The business men    fought
I ard to win   the   game even to  changing pitchers and trying to kill base-
runners.   The score was 16-8 in favor
of  tlie      C.P.R.   On  Monday  the  lire
\ all  and Beavers will clash.   Spectators  may  look     forward  to a lively
game,     as     Manager   Samson    (the I
strong man)  bas strengthened       his J
I eain greatly, so it is ijiwgested that |
hall  bring along there    hose '
v. agon to keep the dusv down.
Manager Hay of the Y would like
to have some of tbe local football en-
tbuslaati challenge the . team.
Success in Business

talk about his wares is committing business suicide. The best way to talk
about them in this town is to advertise
in the cTVIail-Herald.

A tremendous sensation was creat-
In turf circles when it became
known that the famous unbeaten race
horse, The Tetrarch, favorite for the
Derby, sustained an injury to his leg
Trainer Peers idvlsed Capt. D. Mc-
Calmont, owner ol the horse, to
scratch it from that classic, and The
Tetrarch was officially snitched from
the list of the Derby entries.
The report was issued last week by
the jury of sis eminent French physicians appointed to judge the entries
for the SI,000 prize offered last year
by an anonymous reader of Le Matin
for the discovery of the microbe of
rheumatism. The report states that
no competitor siirticicntly establishes
the discovery. Consequently, the donor renews the offer for the present

The Couri of Appeal concurred unanimously in dismissing the appeal
made by It. A. Bonnar on behalf of
Percy Hagel and John Westlake, asking that a new trial he granted on
the ground that the trial judge's
charge to the jury in some instances
was improper. The appellate court
found that if in some instances the
trial judge had done so, there was no
evidence to show that any miscarri-
!•:(• nf justice had resulted thereby.
The dismissal of this appeal means
that the two prisoners convicted of
helping Krafchenko to escape from
tl • police Btation musl serve their
sentence of three and two years respectively.

in a report to his councillors on re-
turnlng from Winnipeg, where he
went in the interests of that district

Between two and threi million feet
of timber now tloating in Sooke lake
will he sold by the city. Bids for
this material will be called for by
Water Commissioner Rust. The logs
bave been cleared from off the lake
shores and watershed, and the great
majority of them are of excellent
lumber  producing  quality.
The Trince Rupert drydock is said
to be making splendid progress. One
of the papers of that city observes
that, to anyone not familiar with its
technical features, it is not easy to
grasp the details of the great enterprise. "Yet," it continues, " the
work now is reaching such an advanced stage that anyone can comprehend its huge scope readily. Out
of the piles of steel on the dock are
being reared lofty frameworks. The
sbipsbed construction is well under
way and a start is being made on

It was appropriate that when Mr. Edison was
seeking the utmost perfection in sound reproduction he should find that this power lay in
the diamond. He discovered it in the course of
more than 2,500 experiments, always looking toward
rarer sweetness, mellower,
stronger tone.
He has equipped every
