for the city to tnke pains to secure
more prompt payment and a resolution was pissed that the city clerk
shall notify all delinquents that if
these overdue accounts are not paid
within thirty dayB t cir water and
light wiil be cut off. Iu discussing

FELL OFF  THE TRAIN
Logger Loses Arm from Accident on South Track
While the south train was en route
from Arrowhead to the city on Saturday, it appears that a hunt er jack,
whi was under tbe influence of liquor,
and who was beating his way up,
managed to fall off the car on to tbe
track. It was not discovered that an
accident had taken place unlil some
lection men, who happened to be fishing not far from Wigwam, noticed the
body lying ou the track bleeding profusely from several deep cuts, They
immediately communicated with Revelstoke and an engine was despatched
to Wigwa.n, which conveyed the injured man to the city where he was
hurried to tb • hospital. The nmu
cal's liiiiitell by the name of Stewart
but is reticent about giving any in-
formatiop as to his action that day or
nb to who he is. The doctors found it
necessary to amputate tbe right arm
at the shoulder, which had evidently
been crushed beneath the car wheels,
and several deep scalp wounds also required attention.
BANK OF COMMERCE

Work in connection with the fillings and fixtures of the new branch

APPALLING
DISASTER
Seventeen Burned to Death
in a Relief Train Accident
and Hundreds have likely
Perished in the Forest Fires
of Northern Michigan.
Detroit, Mich., Oct.. 17.—The total
lusstiflifo in the great forest fires
which, for tbe second time thiB year,
broke out. in the Michigan timber dits-
tricts is unknown at lhe present time.
The towns of Me'z, with 200 inhabitants, Millersburg, wiih 800 inhabitants, and Posen and Pulaski have
been wiped out. A relief train bring-
ing out about 201) refugees from Metz
and Millei'sbuig ran into a burning
culvert and seventeen lives were wiped
out by the tin; wbioh totally destroyed
the train.
The Detroit and Macinao railroad
headquiirleia ibis afternoon iseued the
lolloHii g stutome it.
•'Atmiil 2U0 men, women and children were ou ibe Metz reli.f train
which was wreekeil and uunitd. Seventeen bodies hive heen found Abuut
twenty-five sni viv.irs have been heard
(rum The fate of the remaining 185
at ibis tiini! is unknown. We hope
many of then escaped, but it would
he impioper to In Id out too much hope
We have ibree. rebel trains with d titers, medicines and cuokets on tlie way
to the nCeue.
Conductor Kinsville, after the wreck
uf his train, managed to pass tbe but
blast, but when he reached Milloraburg
Was loltilly blind. Tbe engineer of
the doomed tiain broke through but
waa terribly burned, ilow many of
the 200 persons escaped is unknown
as tbey scattered through tbo forest
and tlieir bodies have not beeu recov-
eieil. In a bouse near the railroad
nek at the edge of the forest an aged
duple was roasted to death.
Alpena, Mich , Oct. 17.—The whole
of Northwestern Michigan is burning.
Tbe flames already bave swept four
counties, and tbe loss of life is heavy,
lt is believed that if reports could be
obtained the results uf i-.e fires would
be the most appalling in the history
of tbis p_rl of.the country. There is
practically no hope for the 200 refugees
who lefl Meiz on the relief train tbat
was wrecked in the burning forest.
One refugee wbo arrived from Metz
today says that very few escaped, and
tbat be believes practically tbe whole
population of the town, numbering
more than 200, was lost.
Saolt Ste Makie, Mich., Oct. 16.—
Tbe forest tires forced their way into
this city early today in spite of the
desperate work of the citizens, who
bittl.-d nil night to keep them outside
tne cily limits.

Canada's Bank System
Thus. Church, ul the National Bank
of Australia, is now in Canada to study
tbo lenttircB of the Dominion's out-
rency system. What has most in-
pressed him, so far, is tbe absence of
gold. When it was pointed out that
Canadians preferred paper money be
cause of its greater convenience in
handling, Mr. Church romarked that
Australia had never felt the incon
venience of carrying gold, but there
was something in the Canadian point

SNOFF THEM OUTI
Successful politics hae been said
to be the art of hypnotizing the
victim into believing that it is a
patriotic duty to look pleasant,
while being robbed which in more
than one case has been definitely
proved. Successful politics, can
also be said of a candidate who
come* out of the campaign scald-
less from the attack of his ojiposers
who at these times rake over the
past life of their enemy and bring
to light all his shortcomings and
failings, which, with more or less
embellishment, are presented to the
public ;is pari of the tactics of political warfare to secure iheir ends.
Although it -.hould not be a chief
isssiie in any political campaign
that a proposed candidate's -shortcomings or default.- be taken as
ia.tors for disqualifying him from
holding public otlice, yet moral
decency is the tirst rei|uirement of
a man who essays public life. The
plea that a legislator'- private
character should be totally exempt
from criticism is, in fact, worse
than nonsense. When a man
»spire_ tu _ position of public trust
he should be prepared lor the
white light of searching investigation which at lhe present time is
one of the principal methods oi
campaign warfare. The drunkard,
the libertine, and the grafter should
be taken without the camp and
s'.oni-d wilh viter to political
death. Along this line should
parties acl, the unclean can only
bring decay and death to the party
which tolerates their company, lt
should lie the business of the electors in the coming elections to
mark the bawds and swindlers, of
public life of whatever political
-tripe fur the political  shambles.
REVELSTOKE WATER I'oWI.R
Apropos of the fact that the C.P.
R. intend to operate their trains
throughout li. C. in the near future
by electricity, tin* possibilities of
the vast power lying dormant in
the waterfalls, rapids, and torrents
;n the vicinity of Revelsluke tor
indu=triaI purpos .p. cannot he overestimated. This phase of development hat:   never   been really given
serious consideration, apart from
the present power and light plant
on the lllecillewaet river. We can
safely say that few cities in Uritish
Columbia are better situated as
regards the accessibility of water
power, than Revelstoke, and when
we consider what e results would
bn were our streams and falls, or
even the Columbia Hiver itself,
harnessed for the production of
electric power, the importance of it
cannot be overestimated. Kevelstoke has ideal facilities for almost
every named industry, both owing
to her geographical position on the
main and junction lines of the C.
P. R. iitul also to the fact that
electric energy can be secured more
or less cheaply. Were Revelstoke
to develop into nn industrial and
manufacturing city, which is more
than likely, there is an abundance
of power which enn lie utilized to
drive all the machinery in the district. To those that know the
country round about and are familiar with the waters, this fact
cannot but appeal to them, and it
is a question which can very well
be taken up and discussed at the
Board of Trade sesBionB when the
improvement and developmental
schemes for the district are before
the board.
UNWELCOME GUESTS.
The manner in which civic authorities are imposed upon has
been evidenced by the recent case
at Vancouver, where u man, his
wife and family of four small children were stranded in lhat city in
.in absolutely destitute condition,
and arc now dependent on tbe city
for support. It appears that this
family had been supported for several months by Calgary, and had
been eventually sent lu the coast
iy a church society there. Inci-
lentally it may be said that thir
man was suffering from chronic
rheumatism and unable to do an)
work. Revelstoke bas frequently
had to face u proposition ol this
ort and it is certainly unfair lo
the people to have to bear the expense of outsiders who come
uuongst US for a little while ami
then become a charge on tbe i
Although humanity calls for the
care of such people who wander
from place to place, yet on the
other hand lhe town where such
people have originaiis lived should
not turn them adrift to set ure
a he Iter and food wherever possible
and thus become a source ol expense and worry to any Community where they may happen to
land. Revelstoke bas all it can do
to look after it- own people without being saddled by those who
irom the outset require the hand of
charity.
CAPITULATION SETTLEMENT
Comment of Labor Organ on
Terms of C. P. R. Strike
The Winnipeg Voice, the organ of
union labor in tlmt city, comments
thun nn the settlement nl the C. P. K.
mechanics' strike:
The 0, P. R. mechanics' sttike ia
over. The process has been ten med a
settlement. Certainly. The strikers
were "settled" bust Sunday, and announcement was niiide on Monday
morning last,
Up to the present time no full, frank
and necessary explanation of the startling climax has been tendered to the
organisations and the general publio.
No adequate explanation has been
given, by anyone competent to give it,
of the extraordinary occurrence.
'1 hat there must he such nn explanation we feel confident. If there
is none other than baa already been
given, then there bas been plundering
most colossal, and that to the gieat
injury of the organized movement and
to every wage earner^  (the Dominion.
The strike itself was an avertable
misfortune- it never ought to have
been culled—this year—but as a misfortune the calling of it takes second
place to its finish,

SCIENTIFIC
FORESTRY
Description of Swedish Methods of Reforestration and
Lumbering-Mayor Lindmark
Advocates School of Forestry
The supreme importance of at once
starting a scientilic system of forestry
is being urged by Charles. F. Lind*
mark, says the \ ictoria Daily Colonist, and was one of the chief topics dis-
I'timi'tl at the conference the other day
between the lumbermen and the
premier and chief commissioner of
lands and works. Mr. Lindmark is a
large timber holder, and incidentally
Mayor of Kevelstoke, and has also
made a study uf forestty. Sweden is
the cradle of scientific care of forests,
and in his youth Mr. Lindmark went
through the Bivediah school of forestry,
while last year lie made a special visit
to Europe to study the met hi ids now
followed hy Sweden and Germany, the
latter country having adopted Swedish
itieth ds with characteristic thoroughness and conspicuous success.
It is now many years since Sweden
realized that her forests were a great
national asset, and she ia conserving
them to such purpose that the supply
of timber is increasing annually in
that country 1 'withstanding the immense amount which ie cut each year.
This is entirely due to the intelligent
system whioh Ibe Swedish government
has Introduced ol compulsory reafforestation. Formerly young saplings
were planted and the government kept
up immense nursery farms for the propagation of the plants, hut advancing
knowltdge shows that 1 hid is no longer
necessary, and the trees are uow grown
from seed which is lirst tested by the
government experts.
Discussing tbe Swedish methods and
the adaptations of it wbioh be would
like to tee introduced to see introduced
into British Columbia, Mr. Lindmark
said:
"In Sweden the forests are surveyi'd
off into blocks, and the rigbt to cut
the timber 11 these blocks is auctioned off. The successful bidde has to
cut tbe tioiler within a specified time,
and when he has cut off the land, he
is obliged to reafforest it. Thia is a
cheap and simple matter, and ia done
by sowing seed which is supplied by
the government. The administration
also supplies an expert to superintend
the operation to all tbe logger has to
do is to Bod the labor. As a matter of
fact tbe sowing in Sweden is largely
done by school children. Tbey are
taught forestry in the schools and in
holidays some of the poorer ones do
very well at it. But even in British
Columbia il would not cost more than
1100 a section.
"Tbe Swedish forests largely belong
to the government, but private owners
are also obliged to re-afforest, in the
same way as tbe loggers on tbe publio
domain. The government, too, is buying up large areas of waste and logged-
off lands and planting tbem, with the
result tbat the forest area of Sweden is
increasing. Formerly they planted
saplings from the government nursery
farms, bul uow seed is used. It merely adds a year or two to lhe time one
bas to wait lor tbe trees to become
merchantable timber. Trees will grow
well from seed in this province, where
the soil ia much more fertile than in
Sweden. 1 have been experimenting
witb some seed I got from the Dominion government and my fir plants are
doing very well indeed.
"Tbe conservation of the timber resources of British Columbia is a more
vital and pressing subject, I think,
than many iii.n seem to realize. The
time to begin ia now. In a small way
much can he done toward perpetuating our forest resources and incidentally diminishing tbe danger from forest tires, but of course in my suggestions, you must remember that I
am now talking only of those lands
which are not suitable lor anything
else hut timber, and iu the interior, at
any rate, I think thai these are in the
majority,
"Nowadays a great deal of timber il
being butchered. The license-bolder
cuts every stick he can sell off hit
land, when in the lung run it would
be much better to leave the small stuff
and take only the merchantable timber. My suggestion is that every
license-bolder be compelled every fall
to burn tbe slashing! of the season before, and the following spring to sow
the land so as to bring on a new crop
of timber. Be should then be allowed
to retain his license at a nominal fee
of, say t'A 01 .4 a square mile, while
the young trees grow.
"The government should supply the
seed free of cost, and there should I e
inspectors to see that it is properly
done, and also that Ibe land is only
good for timber and not suitable for
■gricultnrahlc purpose". Thia would
bave the result not only uf perpetuating Ibe supply of timber in the
country, but would also gu a long way
towards removing the danger from
forest flree, whiob so frequently start
f om o!d slashings allowed to lie on
the ground until they are as dry as
liuder. Our « «il in thia province is
such that all tlmt would be necessary
would be. lo scratch tho soil and deposit the seed. Machines are used for
this which enables the sowing to be
done very quickly
"Another point 1 might mention is
that the year after the pile of slashing are burned needs will spring up,
and these protect the tender shoots of
ihe young trees, and later on, when
lue trees get larger the weeds die off.
This seems to be a provision of nature
for the protection of the sprouting
seedlings. In this way, too, we could
control the kind ol timber to some extent. For instance in my part of the
country the timber near the Columbia
river is 80 per cent, cedar. By sowing
we could "dress tho balance, so as to
get a pr p percentage of fir, which
is probal... ,11 round a more useful
wood.
"ft seems tu tne that lhe Dominion
and Provincial government should
combine anil start a school ol forestry,
as they both hive large timber holdings In the province. Iu this way the
lumbermen of the province could get a
scienlili ' as Well aa practical training.
If such a sch,ml were startetl, the timber owners would supply tho men.
We would send onr foremen and scalers, and the nine months'cotirse would
be of vast benefit lo them, as well as
to us, ami incidentally to the entire
province. For it must, not be forgotten
tbat our limber is one of the greatest
provincial assets.
"There is one other point, mat t.iut
is that ibe cons, rvutinn of uur forests
is iiicissny frnm a climatic point of
view. When I In-sides of the moun
tains aie denuded of their timber, the
amount uf precipitation will run short,
and our rivers will be torrents in the
spring and dry in the summer and
autumn.
'It scema to me that. Ibis is essentially a matter foi government, supervision. It is loo much to expect the
logger to go lo the trouble and expense
uuless he is obliged Io. He naturally
wants to make what he can, and the
distant future does not appeal so much
to bim. In this connection it must
be remembered that it takes from 40
to 60 years, according to locality, for
the seed to develop into merchantable
timber. This is further ahead than
the average individual cares to look,
but it should not be too far for a government which is entrusted with the con
servation oi the national resources."
