lice as iieing a suitable person to
hold a    license,     but  voted  tor  the
third  reading  which  was  given.
Aid. McSorley said tbat there were
other objections. The bylaw served
l.o good object and    was a hardship
upon  hotel  keepers.
The mayor advocated    eliminating
the elaiiSe providing ior a recotunien-

Aid, Bourne suid thai the building
bylaw on which the council wasted
much time was not enforced and had
only been an expense. He th.night
thai the provision for licensing bar
tenders   would   have   a   similar   result.
Aid, It'll said thut the licensing of
bartenders would not effect anyone
conducting a respectable place. It
was a questlou of securing control.
\id. Needham thought that the police Bhould  inspect   the hotel  bar3.
M.I. McSorley said that the proper
regulation  ,,|  hotels  was  the  duty  ot
tiie proprietor. He would support
the licensing ol bartenders if he
thought that it would be Ol any service,  hut  he knew   thai   it  would not.

The first fruits of the heralded
prosperity that the opening of tho
Panama canal is to bring to the
province of British Columbia, was
seen this week when four wholesale
lumber buyers, representing four of
the largest lumber concerns in tho
Eastern states, completed arrangements   foe    the      purchase   of  several
shiploads of choice British Columbia
lumber, to he delivered nt the wharf
at Vancouver for shipment. The object ami destination of the heavy
purchases made during last week was
not disclosed until the identity ot
the     buy ers     was   made   known   hy   n
well-known Seattle lumberman, The
lumber will probably he among the
first commercial cargoes to he carried hy way of the canal from the Pacific coast  to the  Atlantic, states.
With the object    of supplying   tho
Atlantic states with high-grade British Columbia cedar shingles,  Messrs,
\li.watt St Co., are now erecting a
large shingle mill at Powell lake, in
the lieait of one of t.he largest areas
of cedar in the province. News to
the provincial timber department
sbuws that work on the mill is rapidly making progress, and thc mill,
which will employ over 1DU men, will
start cutting shingles in September.
As the best proof of the gigantic market 'opened up for British Columbia
shingles in the east, the entire output
ol the Mowatt mill has heen contract-
id for by eastern distributors.
"I would not be at all surprised to
see by Christmas time this year 20
ships employed in carrying lumber
out of Vancouver to thc Eastern
states," declared Timber Inspector
Ceorge 1). McKay today, when Informed ol the active buying of car -
goes for the opening of thc Panama

Not only is there a great demand
for large timbers in the cast such ns

importance and one which the open -

loads ol lumber and shingles have

and the possibilities for extensive development of the foreign trade in
lumber are extremely bright. In a
recent issue of the Ottawa Journal
reference was made to the development nl trade with the West. Indies,
and   it      was  stated  that  the hulk  ot
the trade ol those islands in lumber

To the Editor Mail-Herald:—
Sir,—As enthusiastic supporters ol
dean sport, wc wish to express
through the medium of your paper
our feelings of disgust, at the dis-
giaceful exhibition at thc ball park
on Friday evening.
i Manager Wells of thc Kamloops
baseball club has shown himself
throughout the season to be utterly
devoid of the elementary principles Ol
sportsmanship and the ordinary conduct of a gentleman, His childish actions in calling hiB team oil the Held
at a previous game and his continual
bickering were fitting preliminaries to
Friday's  fiasco.
Thc citizens of Revelstoke have
proven themselves consistent supporters of good clean sport, and deserve
•nore consideration than bus been
shown them hy Manager Wells and
the Kamloops hall team. The spirit
shown hy Manager Wells when a sub-
seantiiil lead was established by the
Revelstoke team in instructing his
I layers to "rag" the game cannot be
too heartily condemned and we bold
him wholly responsible for this. We
suggest that in the interests of baseball and to restore the amicable relations which have always existed between Kamloops and Kevelstoke in
the past, that there is nly one course open to the citizens of 'Camloops,
.mil thnt is to rid themselves of this
disturbing factor who has done more
to impair baseball and disrupt the
H.C.I, league than all other difficulties combined.
Thanking you for your vuluable

Good Wrestling Match Seen at
Comaplix   Local Boy's
Game Battle
There was a large crowd present to
►ee Sam Clapbam, light heavy weight
;hampion of England, defeat Frank
•Hindui Murphy of Comaplix, lost
Monday night at the C. A. A. hall.
The match was postponed from Saturday. Both men were in the bcBt of
condition us they hud been training
Aery hard during the week, nnd much
money changed hands.
Clapham agreed to throw Murphy
three times within one hour, but
Murphy was thc favorite. At the call
of time Murphy rushed Clapbam ofl
tie fe°t and forced tbe Englishman to
play defensive. Although Clapbam
was in no danger of being thrown, he
was kept down to the mat by the
husky local man, who weighed a
couple of pounds more than Clapham
After a lot of hard work tbe champion regained his feet, and some quick
work was then gone through with tbe
KtigliHhmnn coming out on top. Various locks und holds were applied on
to the local man, but none seemed to
have any eflect, and great cheers
greeted Muiphv as he broke them.
Murphy wan now weakening from the
effects of the bald work and after 21
iiiiiiiilni was pinned f"t  the fust  tunc.
Murphy came buck refreshed after
the Interval and things looked serious
im Clapham when the local man ne -
i ii red a strong hold on him, and held
it for over three minutes. With plenty of wriggling Clapham broke loose
and both men were cautioned for
Hugh work. With a strong croBB
lullock Clapham brought Murphy to
Ihe mat and applying a half Nelson,
nnd head lock secured the second fall
in 18 minutes.
With 21 minutes to go for the last
lall Clapham rushed bis opponent around the ring and it was soon seen

All American Girls
Beaten in Revelstoke
After the delinite refusal of Kamloops to abide by the proposed re-ar-
i ingement of the baseball schedule of
thc B.C. Interior League, the Vernon
team was finally disbanded, and the
I layers left the city last week, Bays
the  Vernon  News.
Vernon nnd Revelstoke, because of
the bust-up of the Kelowna team, favored a shortening of the season, and a
re-arrnnirenient of thc schedule which
permitted the playing of all the scheduled games in one month instead of in
two. This was held advisable because
it would reduce expenses— a very desirable thing owing to the loss of gate
receipts occasioned hy thc forfeiture
Oi the games scheduled with Kelowna.
This Kamloops would not agree to,
insisting that the schedule could not
be changed by the majority over a
minority protest. Vernon felt that
legally Kamloops was in thc wrong,
lut rather than go to the eipense of
i.  lawsuit, the team was disbanded.
Dale will probably finish the season
with Calgary, and Mclvor can pitch
out the rest of thc summer with either Calgary or Ballard. Clemenson has
gone to tbe coast with every prospect
of playing with the Seattle team in
the Northwestern while the other hoys
have chucked ball for the season, and
gone to their homes.
The gume on Wednesday between
the All American Girls and the Revelstoke teams resulted ln a walk away for ihe home boys by a score of 7
to 2. There were a few good plays,
hut the visitors were nt the mercy
of the local team nt all stages of tbe
game, A good crowd was in attendance and everyone seemed bent on
laving all the fun possible. Pr. J.H.
Hamilton   utii|drcd  the  game.

Member for Kootenay Arranges
Interview With Minister
at Vernon
Arrangements have been made by
U.K. Qreen, M.P., for Kootenay, for
a conference between the lumbering
interests of Uritish Columbia and Sir
Qeorge Foster, minister of trade und
commerce, the date to full during thu
forthcoming visit to the province of
the minister, who will be touring the
west us   n member of tbe dominions
royal   .•iiininisslon.
Conditions affecting the Lumbering
industry in this province huve been
the reven f satisfactory, tbe financial depression having had as one dl-
loot elli'it the serious curtailment of
orders from the prairie provinces due
to the cessation of building operations
Prior to the close of the lust session
of the commons Mr. Qreen took occasion to make strong representation to
iiir minister of trade und commerce
respecting the state of the industry
I and specifically suggested that consideration should be given to the wiB-
dom of appointing a number of commissioners to be sent far afield with
instructions to do whut wus possible
to stimulate u demand for Canadian
timber generally, but more particularly thut of Uritish Columbia. The
minister wus very much impressed
with these representations, lmt replied thut it did not appear thut the
government could very welt appoint
commissioners whose duties thus de-
lined should be confined to the timber
industry alone.
On Mr. Creen coming west at the
close of the session he took occasion
to muke a further study of the lumbering situation in Uritish Columbia
and again mude representation to
the minister of trade and commerce,
this time suggesting thut the time
wus opportune for u conference between the bend of the department and
representatives of the Lumber industry. The conference will probably be
held nt  Vernon.

The low ebb of emigration revealed
by the st itisttcs for the half year
ending June 3n, showing a drop from
128-190 last year to 53,000 this year,
drew the comment from Obcd Smith,
Canadian commissioner of emigration
in England, that evidently this is a
p.on-emigrating year throughout Europe. Though the figures compare badly with those of last year, W'hi:h
reached high water mark, he said
they showed an advance on thc figures for four or five years ago. Taking the inward and outward figures,
as supplied by the hoard of trade,
Canada was no worse ofl than other
parts of the Empire. These figures
shewed the balance of movement, as
between last year and this yenr, *o
