report was adopted. Next followed
the election of directors to tske the
place of those retiring, wbo were themselves eligible for re-election.
J. Lyons suggested tbat directors

took active interest in Y. M. C. A.
work and sports, besides those who
looked alter the business end of it, It
was finally rt solved that tbe retiring
directors be re-elected witb the exception of those not now eligible, their

General matters relating to the progress of games and institution work
wore discussed. The board felt that
the letters Y. M. C. A. should be
painted on the building, in order to
give more prominence to tbe association. It was resolved tbat this work
be done. It was also suggested that
an electric sign be procured and the
matter was left witb the president and
secretary to procure designs, prices,
etc. W. A. Alldritt, physical director
said tbat tbere was no fire protection
in the building, and suggested tbat a
hose be installed, and that if that was
done he would form a volunteer fire
brigade. He said that tbere were a
number of valuables in the building
and if a fire broke out there were no
means of extinguishing it.
A committee wae appointed to look
into tbe matter,
Mr. AUdritt also recommended that
tbere should be a boys department.
He said tbis was very necessary as the
membership of boys wan large aud
they had no place where they could
read, write or talk, for themselves. He
suggested that a boys department be
arranged for and fitted up before the
coming winter.
Tlie board laid the matter over till
next meeting and adjourned.

Grant Hall Tells What Company
Want in New Rating
Winnipeg, June 5.—Before the con
ciliation board Grant Hall for the
C. P. R. agreed to go on yesterday,
taking the eastern and western mechanics' complaints together. Roughly
speaking, he said, only livo per cent,
ol the men were affected under the
new schedule. It was not I lie intention of the company to interfere with
the good men, The company wanted
three classes ol tioilerinakers. If this
relief could not be obtained tbey
wished the boilermakers' helpers abolished. The company would simply
put in a laborer for that was what he
Asked as to the meaning of a committee of representation he said a
committee ol representation was a certain number ol men iu every shop to
deal with the foreman or master
mechanic. It was objected that two
or three men in every shop should do
tbis, taking up the company's time,
the time consumed by the committee
being charged to the company. The
company requires that ono ol the parties affected by grievances should ap
pear in every case. Other grievances
set down for inquiry had reference to
hours ol work, rcdiiotion of expenses
and employment ol apprentices, as to
which complaint, was made against
tbo filling ol shops with apprentices,
none of them getting an opportunity
to loarn the trade proporly.
Hall intimated tbat among witnesses he proposed to call were tbe
general foreman at Rovelstoke, the
master mechanic at Calgary, the district master mechanics at Moose Jaw
and Kenora, Master Mechanic Hon-
gerlord ol Winnipeg and others.

From authenticated reports from
the prairie it is evident thnt the
outlook for the coming grain season
is as promising as it has been for
many years, aud a feeling of elation
and hope has filled all the farmers
over tho prospects of a bumper
crop. In almost every section of
the grout wheat-raising country,
the crops are coining on very IftBt
and the reports show that conditions never looked better. In no
case doeB there appear to be any
likelihood of failure, and the
weather and elements have been
propitious in bringing on the grain
which is woll up. Rain has fallen
in almost every district in sufli-
cient quantities and the general
prospects augur well for a magnificent harvest. It can be readily
recognised and understood what a
rich harvest will mean to Canada
as a whole, and how the wave of
prosperity will flow into every
channel. Farmers on the prairie
who after bad seasons have scarcely sullicient money to purchase
the necessities of life, much less
luxuries* will _now be enabled to
launch out and erect buildings
which they bave not hitherto been
able to do. Actuated by the
possession of capital the farmers
will procure such things as are
necessary for the further development of their lands which will
mean increased business and commerce in almost every department. The Buccess of the harvest
this season will mean renewed
vigor in trade and its far-reaching
influences will be felt in British
Columbia, whoBe product, will find
ready markets in the prairie sections. It is anticipated that the
demand for lumber this year
will be unprecedented, and
that building on a large and extensive scale will be carried on, so
that instead ol the mills of this
province being forced to stock up
their yards with lumber, the enormous demand will necessitate their
running dav and night to keep
pace wilh tbeir orders. It is calculated that the coming season on
the prairies will turn the tide of
dull times and create a return of
prosperity. The farmers will buy
wlmt they need and markets will
aiJiiiii   ho   open.   The    lumbering

The following BiiBHestioiiB were held
out by Q 0. Buchanan, of Kualo, in a

That tho acquisition of timber lands

to be a good investment.
That B C. should have a forestry
commission, and that every acre of

should be turned over to such depart
ment That funds should lie provided

sources amounted to $234,451.07, while
in January they went as high as
$347,206 65. For May the figures are
•11164,267. The drop in the receipts is
due, ot course, to the policy of the
government in placing a reserve upon
all unreoorded timber. The revenue

not suggest that the merchants

A party of three, consisting of Mr.
Alldritt of the Y.M.C.A., Mr. Symington, Presbyterian missionary,and Rev,
J. R. Robertson ol Knox Church made
the ascent of Mounts McKenzie and

interesting climb.
The party left Revelstoke at 2 p in.
on Tuesday with 121b. packs each on
the back. Goinv, by way of Williamson's Lake and up the shoulder ol tbe
main lidge facing the town, tlie climbers got well up to the timber line by
7:30 in the evening when they made
camp and tlept under the open eky.
By 6.30 o'clock iu the morning they
were climbing upward again and
reached the summit of McKenzie at
8.30 o'clock, about 7,500ft. alt. By 10
o'clock the summit of Tilley was
reached,   about   8,000ft.   alt,     Good

C. than Mr. M. J. Henry, 3010 Westminster Rond, Vancouver, B. C. Mr
Henry tins been in the business for the
past eighteen years. His knowledge
of B. C. conditions, his wide experience
as a grower of fruit and ornamental
trees, the ample facilities nt his com
mand, and a natural nptitude for this
line of work, have all helped in the upbuilding of a very extensive business.
Aside altogether from the patriotic
acpect of the case and, other things
being equal, the "grown in B. C.
brand" should appeal to us, there aro
decided advantages in procuring nursery slock from a local concern. The
trees are uot so long in shipment, cor
is fumigation necoBsary as in the case
of imported Btock, and further, the
local nurseryman relies upon your
continuous support—self interest dictates generous treatment of his patrons.
M. J. Henry employs no travelling
salesmen. His catalogue—one of the
host nursery catalogues in America—
is sent free to all intending purchasers
This is his silent salesman. Although
his sales extend from Dawson City to
Oregon, and from the west coast ol
Vancouver Island to the Maritime
Provinces, this business has boon developed entirely through advertising
in tho local papers ol the country
Surely this is proof—if proof were
needed—of the value of the local paper
as an advertising medium.
time was made on the homewaid trip
the climbers reaching town at 4 30 p
m. on Wednesday, having been 26
hours on the hills.
Among the interesting features of
the trip might be mentioned, first, the
heavy bush work among the lower
hills accompanied by tbe afternoon
beat und the sweet fellowship of
countlesB uiOEquitoee. Second, the
heavy snow work above the timber
line making the climbing slow and
difficult. Third, the best feature ol
the climb was reaching the summit of
Tilley around by the ridge from McKenzie summit. Nothing difficult
was found, but tbe wild scenery down
from the walls ol Tilley and the splendid snow cornices at this season of the
year made this part of the climb very
interesting. Fourth, the climbers had
an interesting and thrilling experience for a few moments coming down
the snow slopes of McKenzie. Rev.
Robertson was leading down a good
glissade which started a snow slide
and in a moment a magnificent slide
swept down a thousand feet into a
broad field below. Mr. Robertson for
the moment wae thrown with the
tumbling suow but by a quick struggle managed to right himself face forward and keep himself on top of the
slide, while by good use of the ice axe
in driving it into the underlying
stratum of snow which was not sliding
he kept himself from  going aB fust as
three and a half acres in extent, and
offered as a lease to them upou condition that they erect a suitable building upon tbe land within a year's
time. Another matter of importance
discussed was tlie advisability of getting a oh.irter from the Dominion
government. Final action, however,
will not .be taken until the annual
meeting, which dikes place this ye r
at Rogers Pass, July 7 to July 15.
In all the club has issued 67 certificates this year. It is very gratifying
to note that over one hundred new
members bave been added during the
last year, bringing the present total
enrolment to over lour hundred.
A new item that will interest the
climber iB that to now obtain a certificate it is necessary to climb 2,500
feet above timber line, on truly alpine
glacier hung peak.
The Rev. James Outram, of Crescent, Colorado, and author of "In the
Heart of the Canadian Rockies," was
proposed as honorary member, and
steps will be taken to inform R.v.
Outram of the honor about to be conferred upon him by the Canadian Alpine club.
The limit for this year's camp is
placed at 200, exclusive of attendants,
and it is expected that some 80 tents
will provide quarters for the club.
Arrangements have been made
whereby the C.P.R. will loan the

Canadians Are Justly Proud of

people in the Dominion ;—
" Canadians, instead ol showing a
passionate anxiety to |be annexed, go
Bu fur ii iw inlays as to conic s uth ol
•11) degrees and dine in Btate and proclaim the fact that they are proud of
being just what they are. At a recent
dinner ol the Canadian Club of New
York—one gtieat—it is true, he happens to lie deputy speaker of the Canadian House of Commons—pleased his
hearers by declaring that, though he
was of French origin, ho was proud to
he a subject of tho British Empire.
And, as a mutter of (act, if over there
was a chance that Canada would make
a change ol dominant partners, the
event has been removed into the in.
definite future by the action ot another
Canadian of French origin, who for 12
years baa been premier of the Dominion government. Cum la's patriotism
is stronger now than it has ever been,
and that in spite oi the fact tbat the
rapid growth uf her west, upon which
her buoyant hopes su largely rest,
has been due in a very Urge measure
to settlerB from the United Statee.
But these irr migrants, us the London
Times pointed out the other day,
learn to bear easily the British allegiance, while they constitute, naturally, an added tie of friendship
between the two countries. A friendly
