hearers to look ahead—to »-ee as it
were in the future the development
of the great heritage which is
tlieir.-*. He placed before thetn the
picture that will one day Iih realized of the Columbia Valley lieing
traversed by railways, the lands ol
this valley and shores of Arrow
Lakes being thickly peopled by
settlers, and the country studded
with poultry, fruit, anil agricultural farms yielding forth annually
their rich crops of the products of
tlie soil.
lie suggested to them the utilisation of their mountain water powers,
when great plants will make this
power ami light available at small
cost, lie spoke of the time to
come when tlie increase of fruit
production would bring in its train
tlie establishment of canning factories, a.'nd how the soil, suited ns
il is to beet, culture, could provide
Uu- raw material for a sugar factory. He pointed out how the
lumber industry would develop industries for by-products, as box
factories. He might have told his
auilience liow the Columbia River
drains one of the greatest and lin-
est pulp timber areas of British
Columbia, and how we might, yet
expect to lind at Hevelstoke a huge
paper mill utilizing this supply of
otherwise waste forest material,
lie might have told us how the
hemlock forests around here would
afford the best material in the
world ior tanning, ami the establishment of a tannery drawing its
supply of raw hides and skins from
all parts ui tlie world, lt does u
city like Revelstoke good to hear the
prophetic views of prominent and
successful men like Mr. Klummer- J
felt. It broadens our ideas, tills us
with new life and hope for the future, and indicates the great things
yet to be realized from what we
are too conscious ure only the
suitill beginnings and organisations
of human effort.
The poultry men must have fell
encouraged at the bright prospects
the ligures presented by Mr. Flunimerfelt held out for them.
Not the least is the mineral outlook of the countrytributary to Kevelstoke. The Fish Creek Camp is a
proved gold camp.    The greut   de

lo be established, as reported, it
will take away a considerable number of children from the city
schools, and especially would this
he the case in ward 1. These matters all require careful consideration. The people of Kevelstoke are
loyal to their city and want to see
it progress along safe and sound
lines. We therefore believe that
although all the propositions submitted to them by the trustees this
year have been turned down.it has
only been because these matters
have not been properly laid before
and discussed by public meetings
of the citizens. The sooner lhe
trustees adopt the policy of taking
tbe public fully into tlieir conli
dence, the sooner will tlie educational interests of Kevelstoke receive that support and financial
authorisation from the public
which the importance of the question demands.

A PUBLIC SCANDAL
It remained for   Karl   I irey,  the
Governor-General, on his visit to
llie gaols among other public institutions at the Coast, to draw atten
tion  to   the   fact   that   prisoners
awaiting   trial   were being  herded
with the worst convicts in the provincial gaols.   Tlie Governor-General's charge has not   been   denied
so that its truth appears to be  admitted.    The fact reveals a scandalous condition of the  administration by tlie Provincial department
ol   justice,       We  do   not   know
whether British Columbia lias visiting justices appointed to the gaols.
but if so it is  apparent  they  have
failed to do tlieir duty.    Now  that
the attention of Hon.  Mr.  Bowser,'
as   Attorney-General,     has    been
drawn to this disgraceful condition
of tilings it is to be hoped  he will
apply a  drastic  remedy  and  discharge from the service of  his  department   the officers  responsible
for the scandal in  iti-  administration.

Protection from forest Fires An
Important Matter
The B C. Forestry CotutnisBionere
hive taken up the matter ol the beet
way to prevent aud deal with the luresl
lire question and ninny ways have
been aninjei-ted by the various witnesses ex-imined. While the matter
is under oioeideratiou we would like
to make a lew sutoisti ius alone the
same lines.
We think one of the si. test and most
efficient ways ol de ilii g with the
lorest lire question would be to adopt
the system of mutual lire insurance
under government control, and we
submit the following artcle taken
Iro-ii the World's Work for May,
191)11, in support of our contention
well worthy oi consideration,
We ibink that the Government could
well nll'.ird tu undertake such a
measure in the interest of the country :-
I'KKVENTIVI.   URE  INSURANCE   FOR
K0KE8TB
" The United States Government
experts who investigated the forest
tires in Michigan lust year report a
toss ol $28,502,697. This includes the
value of the timber and ot property-
destroyed, and the money spent in
fighting the tires. About one billion
feet of timber were burned, which is
about equal to the yearly cut in that
State and about oue-tenth of its
standing timber.
" Years ago, there used to be a
great many boiler explosions which
caused great damage aud Iobs ol lite.
A. few explosions occur now, but not.
many, because most steam boilers are
insured, and the insurance companies
(iud it cheaper to inspect them ai.d to
see that they do not explode than to
pay the damage of explosions Kor
examp'e, in one year, when the total
disbursements of the Haritord Sttam
Boiler Inspection and Insurance Co.
were $1,207,115 05, its losses «ere
$127,168.22. Its aim is primarily
prevention, uot indemnity.
The L'. S. Forest Service estimated
from its investigation and experience
that the coBt of maintaining an efficient ranger force that should keep tbe
tire loss at a minimum, would be between one and a half and live cents an
acre per year, varying with the kind
ot forest and the topography of the
country. Preventive lire insurance
applied to our forests would be a very
effective way of decreasing the needless loss which occurs from—iu most
cases—wanton carelessness."
