I '1 have been on the prairies for 30
years," says Mr. Spence, "and I
never saw better crops. The crop is
remarkably uniform. Some is al-
leady cut and threshed >and most of
the crop is now practically safe from
frost. The harvesting of this year's
crop will mean a return of substantial prosperity to the prairies. It
cannot he otherwise, and the returns
from the heavy prairie crop cannot
fail to beneficially affect British Columbia."

said Mr. Larson. "About $12,000 has

Wages of Lumbermen
Increasing at Cranbrook
Some interesting' items are recorded in reports recently received by the
Minister of Lands, upon conditions in
the Cranbrook district. Crop prospects and favorable weather give
every hope that thc prairie demand
for lumber this fall will be good, especially as present stocks in the
prairie yards are light. The amount
of current business done by the mills
is showing some increase, and it is
estimated there are from 900 to 1000
men engaged at the present time in
tlie lumber industry in tlie district.
With a scarcity of labor, owing to
the temporary withdrawal of men
to work as harvesters, the rate of
wages shows a tendency to increase
for the time being. One of the
larger orders now being filled by the
mills at present is composed of grain
doors, one mill alone having an order which will consume one and a half
million feet of lumber, another mill
having a still larger order, and a
third turning out considerable quan-
tltiea of the same article. A timber
sale area containing three and a half
million feet of timber has been recently applied for, and cruised. The
steps which arc being taken to devel-
np the prairie demand for British
Columbia lumber have naturally given rise to much interest in a district
whose mills depend so largely upon
prairie orders, and favorable comment has been expressed upon the
action taken liy the government.

In less than two months after be
was taken from Canada to England,
charged with murder, one Crippen
was hanged in London. More than
three years have elapsed since the
killing of Herman Rosenthal. Three
years ago, plus one dny, Charles
Becker lost his liberty. Early this
morning he lost his lite. One of his
own counsel has Baid of him that he
was a marvellous man, which Is true
t,i the extent that he was no com-
inon murderer.
Tiie killing of Rosenthal proved to
be expensive. Five lives was tbe
price exacted by tbe State, but that
ol '.lack' Zelig also was sacrificed,
and how many other less direct contributions to the grim account were
made will never be known. Incidentally It cost a great deal of money
tare this account, lt would be
t to discover how much, but
the sum was large.
There were two trials and two verdicts, the second of each Peine a con-
lon     of the first.   Twenty-four
eclared Becker to be guilty   of
in the tirst degree.  The   re-
cords     of     the second passed  safely

. which decided that the    de-

"2nd Seaforth Highlanders of Vancouver. It is expected the troops
will be  mobilized at an early date.
