The following interesting letter
from Hurt Munro dated Halifax, February 21, haw been received.
Dear Brother,—We have JUBt com
jilcted our ti'ip across Canada by
troop train and I uni going to make
an attempt at describing a tew of
the incidents which occurred since
leaving Victoria a week ago yester
When the news was circulated
among the men of the Mllth Battalion
on th" lflth of this month that wo
were to leave the scene of our win
ter's training for u point, somewhere
nearer to the tiring line, the noise in
the mess room where fifteen hundred
men were engaged in devouring tbeir
midday meal wns perfectly indescrib
able and could only he equalled by a
similar number of men who had been
kept for nearly four months in daily
expectation hy the news just received.
Immediately men who had been sintering silent suspense for weeks past
liecame voluble in the extreme and
MVen after "lights out" had sounded
xt midnight (late leave having been
granted on that occasion) it was impossible fur the orderly corporals and
sergeants to obtain anything approaching order for hours. In the morning thc same subject, was on tap and
flowing freely while main arguments
were started as to our prohahle destination coupled with the method ol
getting there. A few of the destinations which found favor with many
of the interested ones were, Franco
.Vingland, Scotland, Bermuda, Egypt,
Malta nsd South Africa, while the
unites mentioned were C.P.R. and
I.C.R. to Halifax (which wc are
now travelling) nmd steamship from
tbat port; via Blue Funnel boat down
the Pacific through the Panama canal and hy the Canadian Taciflc
steamboats direct from Victoria to
Hong  Kong and     Mnltn.  Everybody
one talked to     including  our  officers
j seemed  to    have n ditlei ent      destination  in  mind und  a ditlerent     route
i to travel   with  at least  a  dozen  rea-
isons  (all  feaBihle)   wily  it  should    he
chosen.     immediately  we commenced
to  suy  good-bye  to  our friends      for
1 ev«n such of ub as came  from  intcr-
, im   points  as   Hevclstoke,   Kamloops
I anil   Vernon or down the coast   from
Prince   Rupert  hud  during   our    Btay
I of    three    months    in   Victoria      met
niMny     people     outside    the barrack
room  whom  we shn'll  always call  by
the  name of  friends.      Personally      I
I w«n   nincli  surprised   to   find the  Vic-
, toria   pulilic so   social,ie   and   friendly
as  1 had been led to helievc by   people  who didn't  know any  better that
the   opposite  was the  rule.   1   for    one
who  have lived      in  Canadian  towns
'and cities from the Atlantic     to   the
i Pacific can safely  say  that never      ir
lily  life have I  enjoyed a winter  such
hb   the one  just   spent ln   the   cap'ital
of Uritish Columbia among climatic
snd  social     conditions equalled      by
few and excelled  by none, I feel euro
in the world,  and I shall  look     forward  with  the greatest  pleasure      to
the  time   wheu      we shall    have  convinced  cousin  Willy ot Berlin  that  he
bad the wrong   idea  in his head      all
the  time,  and   be  free to  return      to
\ lctoria if only for a few weeks     to
tell   our  new   found  friends  how      it
nine  done.  The  last few  dnys  nt   the
Willows were  spent     In     exchanging
our  old  rifles  for  new ones,   drawing
such   necessary  articles  ns  deck  iilip
pets,   cardigan   jackets,   woolen  caps,
etc.,  and  packing  our two kit    bags
and repacking them until we felt sure
that we hud     all the     artidles necessary   for a five  weeks  journey   in    the
brown  one and our    other belongings
which  would come in handy later on
in  the white one.    Right     here     wc

Mr. Justice Clement Finds Mc

The great lawsuit over tbe boring
of the tunnel at Rogers I'ass ln» the

& Sons sued the firm of Foley Bros.,
Welch & Stewart for JWO.OOO dum-
aRes, was thc subject of a judgment
by Mr. Justice t'lement ou Wednesday. His lordship finds In favor ol
the plaintifls, hut only tor a total

probably compare with tbe judgment
as the trial lasted for sixteen days
before a nidge and tw<i assessors. In
which leading counsel u,nd very eminent expert witnesses from all parts
of the continent were heurd.
The plaintiff* who held a contract
for thc boring of thc pioneer tunnel
which parallels the mam hole ceased
work on thc contract on Oct..Inr 9
last, after,froqucnt friction with the
defendants' engineer. They claimrd
$•60,000 bonus, which at the rate
they were progressing they claimed
they would have easily earned, and

Best Wages for Farm
A arcss bulletin issued by tbe census und statistics oltice summarizes
the results of inquiries made by
crop-reporting correspondents as to
iii the values of farm land, (2) tbe
values of farm help aud 13) the values of farm live stock m 1S14.
Values of Farm Land.
For the whole of Canada the average value of farm land held lor agricultural purposes, whether improved
or unimproved, and Including the
value of dwelling houses, farms,
stahles and other farm buildings, Is
returned as >:'.s.ll per acre, which is
about equal to tbat of tbe last
s.inilar Inquiry In 1 'lu, when tbc
value wus given as S3*>.45 per acre.
In 1911 the average was returned by
the census a (30.41, but this value
was based upon ret rni from all oc-
rupiers, including (..rms only recently settled and therefore of less value.
By provinces the average vuiues of
1914 range Irom $:T per acre in Al-
1 erta to J160 per acre in British Columbia. In this province however the
high value is due t.. orcharding, ordinary agriculture heing subsidiary
to fruit culturo
Wages  01  Kami  Help.
In recent years the wages ol lurm
help have Increased considerably, and
the] icached their highest point during the bumper harvest ol 1913. But
in l'.H I the pendulum swayed back,
le-s labour being required on fam-.B
owing to lighter crops, Since August
the war has had for one of its effects
an increase in the supply of farm
labOUl and consequently a fall in the
wages. The demand for labour this
winter has also dscreased I ecause of
the increased cost f board. For the
Dominion the average wages per
month   during   thc  rammer,   Including
118.81  f..r female help.  For th.
Including board,  Uu av<trag<    wages
were ■ h and $189.16 for

His first otlicial act in his new diocese wil'i he performed ut St. Saviour's, Nelson, tomorrow, when Lie
will preach in that church. The week
lollowing, until March 16, he will
spend in Nelson and tbe neighborhood. On Thursday, March 11, he will
address the Canadian Club at Nelson at luncheon, At the end of that
week, Bishop Doull will start on a
two-months' tour of the dioceBe. He
will first proceed to Creston, returning thence to Nelson enroutj to
Grand Forks. In the southern coun
try he will visit I'hoenix, Greenwood,
and Rock Creek. From there the Bis
hop will go by stage to Penticton,
which he plans to reach on Murch 22,
proceeding to Bummerland and Kelowna aud so to Vernon, where he
will spend tbe few days following the
25th. While at the latter town, he
will visit the various settlements in
the neighborhood, terminating his
Okanagan sojourn on the 29th. Kevelstoke will be his next stopping
place, and thereafter Kaslo will be
visited. This extended tour will
take some weeks, but the Bishop will
be in Nelson for Easter.
After Easter, the Bishop will travel
up the Windermere Valley, stopping
at Invermere and Golden. From Golden he will travel directly east to
Fort William, to be present ai :,.
meeting of the session of the House
of Bishops of the whole of Canada.
Archbishop Matheson will preside at
this meeting.
Bishop Doull expects to visit Vic
toria for the consecration of the Bishop of Columbia as Bishop of Ottawa. This ceremony cannot take place
fer three months at least, for the rea
son that the canon of the Anglican
church does not permit the Synod to
meet at an interval of less than three
months. It is prohahle, therefore,
that the consecration of Bishoji Roller will take place anoit the beginning ol June.
When seen by a press representative
last evening, thc bishop stated that
he had come to no decision as to
v.htre he would establish his episcopal seat, Nelson was tbe largest centre but there wns a probability that
some other place might be selected
ultimatelv. He would not make a decision until he had inquired thoroughly into locnl ronditions and conferred
will his central committee. He added that the completion ol tbe Canadian Northern and Kettle valley)rail-
waya would make his biBhopric far
more accsslble. In stretched from
Tete .Inline Cache to the international border and from the 120th merid-
i.'in to the Alberta boundary line. It
included 3   parishes.
.Inst before leaving; Victoria, he le-
ceived a magnificent Bishop's ring
from his former pnrishoners of the
, church of the Advent, Westmount,
Que., and he expressed keen appreciation .ef this valuable token of re-
membrinec from his friends in the
jstep wub thought advisable us
Relief society had been enjoying
privileges of the lied Cross without
actually assuming its obligations. A
second reason was that thiB move
■ would give the 'locul workers a bet-
1 ter and stronger looting as tbe Ked
Cross is u chartered society of inte.-
national scope. Then too the men
may be brought into active membership and greater claims may bo
made on the general public for sup^
This will in no way interfere with
the work of the locul relief committee
whose funds havc been kept entirely
separate. This Work will still re-
ma'in in the hands of the committee
consisting of Mrs. T. Kilpatrick,
Mrs. U.K. Atl'ins, Mrs. S. G. Robbins, Mrs. Cormier and Mrs. T.
The Canadian Ked Cross society
was lirst established in t896 uud was
in active operation during the Boer
war. it was incorporated by an uct
of the Dominion parliament in 190.1.
The Canadian Ked Cross is in affiliation with the British Red Cross

The following article ou road building in British Columbia appears In
the Montreal Star.
This year the provincial and Dominion governments have been building up Mouut RevelBtoke mear tho
city of that name lu the Selklrks a
scenic roadway. The completed road,
around ten milcB lu length, will take
tlie autolst from an altitudo of
i.,480 feet to 7,000 leet—in the clouds.
This road-building is perhaps moro
spectacular than anything .ever before
attempted in Canada, but the cost Ib
hy no means great, even appearing
teinall hi'Siile some of the mileage
road making costs incurred for farmers in British Columbia, The cost ot
girding Mount Revelstoke will, it is
said, average little if any more than
S&.OCO .i null'. Many miles of fariv
roads in British Columbia bave had
more mi tbem. one terming municipality alone—Richmond—has eighty
live milos of macadamized road, the
average cost of which was $3,500 a
mile, with no account taken of the
initial but somewhat previous expenditure for clearing and rough
Good Roads Are Important.
How Important good roads are to
the farmer' Few farming communities with good roads but wear a
happy air of general prosperity. Tn
other fertile d1 stricts where n.nds
are bnd farmers labor under a tremendous handicap. With many agriculturists th? character of the road
to town determines whether thc ledger shows on December 31, profit or
loss for the yeur.
i    The cost per ton of hauling     farm
produce over broken stone roads     in
prime condition    has  lueem estimated
at ten cents a mile.     In comparison
I with this the haulage cost over broken stone roads in ordinary condition
is fifteen ents, on wet, sandy   roads
I 10 cents, on rutty nnd muddy earth
,roaiis 5H cents,    nnd     on    dry sundv
I roads SO cents. No one has estimated
'the eost per  mile at transporting, as
so many  British  Columbia  and other
Wes'ern Canada farmers havc     done,
farm  produce over rough  trails.  If  it
was expressed  in dollars and  cents It
would  be stngjering to most people.
British  Columbia's road  problem is
n serious one.  Thousands of miles of
roads have been buHH for    the     farmers, yef continually     new     settlers
are calling for  more.      Every farmer
must hive his road, so heavily wood-
e 1  is th.'    country     generally.     The
mountainous  character  of  the      pro
vince often times means that a road
several miles  in length will serve but
a few settlers even  when the  district

complained ahout by mnny witnesses,
who claimed that the useless room
wub taken away from agriculture and
given over to weed growths. A decrease in width has been under consideration.
It was found, further, that an account of the large expenditure on
roads many settlers looked to govern
ment road work as a source of regular Income.
In the province were 18,686 miles ol
government roads and 7,31ili miles of
trails. The latter represented an increase since"1900 of U,!i27 miles, and
the former an increase of 5,579 miles
Besides this mileage there were also
many miles of road built by municipalities.
The Okanagan valley is well supplied with good roads .now, and on
the Lower Mainland, except in the
Sve-acre and ten-acre subdivision districts, the need for them is not es-
peclally great. The greatest lack is
in the interior and in the districts, ol
northern British Columbia opened
up by tlie Grand Trunk Pacific railway.
To give these agricultural districts
roads is a big problem, especially
dining this time of business depression. How the provincial government
meets the situation in thc ycarB to
come will make a good story in itself. British Columbia is fast heing
criss crossed hy railroads. Wha.. is
required now is plenty of good highways through the territory a.ong

Hon. W. R. Ross Gives Valuable Information on Surveys
in New Territories
The report of the minister of lands,
Hon. W.R. Ross, K. C, which has
liecn presented to the legislature contains a vast amount of information
regarding tho     lands,     forests     and
waters of British Columbia, and is a
Very valuable work. In addition to
the various reports of the administrative branches Vi survey reports are
published, giving in detail records of
the conditions which prevail over a
Rrcnt portion of this large provinco,
Information of great value to the
land seeker, Not the least, interesting
cf the many Interesting reports aro
thus.' which deal with exploration in
the northern confines nf the province,
north nf the Peace river,in CnsMnr,
nnd elsewhere. There were 1,HI2.OHO
acres added to the surveyed area of
the province as the result of the 101 I
Benson's work. (If this acreage 1iin.,(Mll)

for pre-emntion, The remaining 28,-

applications to purchase in which
rases the coast of survey becomes nn

Th" results accomplished in surveys for 1011 are slightly in excess of
the nerenee surveyed in 1013. Since
1907 the total ncreaec surveyed by
the province is eivcn at 4,80.r,,91n
nrres. of which area 950,000 ncres
have been Crown-granted to pre-emptors or nre held under pre-emption record: 250,000 „eres are held in reserve for sale bv public auction; *-*0fl,-
C-nn acres have beet, reserved for Dni-
versitv purposes: 500.(MX) acres represent sales of various descriptions;
nnd 2.315,910 acres remain available

On- of the manv reports which will
rereive much attention is that of
Prof. W..T. Elliott. who supervised
the dry-farmine experimental work
undertaken hy the department of
lands to d"termin° the agricultural
value of larce areas in the interior—
a work which is fraught with tremendous consequence to the development .if ,1 v.ist area.
From thc reports submitted cover
Ing tin- lirst year's practical work it
is evident that very gratifying te-
rolts were secured     on    the Lillooet
Farm,   but  in  the Nicole   the      grass-
hopper pest  verv seriously  Interfered
w*ith the experiments made. The retort shows that in the matter of
hud-settlement, greater progress was
made during tbe vear than during
any former period in the history of
the province: the issue of pre-emption
records having reached the total of
4. 304—a marked Increase over th ■
previous year, an I a steady growth
since 1905, for which year the tigures
were 955 records.
During the year  114,410  acres of re-j
served   lands  wire 0| • neil   to  pre emp- '
Uon entry, Of this acreage, approximately   90,000   irres  r'present     lands
which had been closed to preemption j
pending  survey       nnd  the  remaining
2**1,7111  ncres  repres.-nt   logged      lands
which  had been subdivided prior     to
opening  to entry.  These  lands      were |
divided into 9e"9 pre-emptions, and at
the openings  IS2 of the parcels   wero
(■led  upon.  Thc greatest demand was
for  the logged lands  m-:.r the    coast,
and with the    exception    of tht area
opened  in     the     Vicinity of Kennedy
Lake,   on   Vancouver Island,  all     the |
loKg"d lands on the const were     ap
piie.i for on the fust  flaj   on     which
they   were opened  to entry.
During the year 3,668 of the     pre  j
emptions throughout    the    province
were inspected hy officers of the     de-
pertinent with    a     slaw to securing ,
compliance with tbe provisions of tho |
"Land      Act"  as to  occupation      and
Improvement, with the result that 80'.i
of the outstanding  records were can- I
celled,  chiefly on  the ground     of non   |

Land sales for the yeai  throughout '
the province totalled   15.036 acres,  e.f
which  .".'103 acres represented  the sal.1

sale     of     unsurveyed      lands   These
figures  indicate the smallest  sales,  of

flew Treatment Provides Market for Stumps—Land
Cleared  Free
Thomas De. Caven, the representative from tho Cranbrook district, at
Monday evening's session o.' the
House, made am excellent speech. Ho
dealt very Interestingly with the land
On the 26th ol lust May, he fluid,
70 applications were: made for cutrieB
on a portion ol laud thrown open iu
the Cranbrook District, but ouly oue
in teu were uble to remain on tho
land as they were forced to scbk employment on the public roads and m
other avocations to maintain tliem-
•elves and their fum'ilies. It is a ;iues-
tion how to get the people on tbe
laud, but it is a greater ftuestlon
how to keep them on the land. To
do this, the farmer muBt have a
chance to break even ut tirst, as the
-average mau pioneering In a n w
■country, although he may fully Under
stand farming, and will contribute to
a permanent and excellent class ol
citizenship, 'it is rarely he hus sullici-
ent money to keep bin. io ug u.itil be
.-■in clear his bind and place it i u a
profitable basis.
Mr. Caven said be disir d at this
time to refer to an Industry that wus
.-not a new oue, that of distillation ol
stumps, but one that had not ben
amide commercially successful until a
nevtreatment had been introduced,
and Mi. Moore, of the Kootenays,
had spent years in the study of the
subject, was prepared to establish a
plant In W.ist Kootenay for handling
the by-products of the wood In the
Stumps. The proposal to establish
such a plant would mean that thc :
farmer would get $.i to id a cord for
his stumps, which would mean that
he could clear his laud virtually true
of cost. A test had been made of a
carload of stumps from a section
near Cranbrook, these stumps being
Bight years old, and the result was
most satisfactory from a commercial
point of view.
1 and Cleared Without Cost,
ln the Kootenay and Columbia
valleys, there were lingo tracts oi
land held by noi residents, purchased by those who had held them for
years, who asked prices that could
rot be paid by the farmer. But if the
thoua-inds of acres ot log^ed-ort lauU,
land nost fertile, could be d.eartd
without cost, it would mean, a tide
of im nigrants Rowing upon the land,
immigrants who could secure the
land at reasonable in ices and clear:*,
for tl e money they would receive for
their r.tumps. This would mean the
bringing about of a prosperity thut
wouid continue to glow, and each
vear idd to the population ol th'
listrin. In concluding on this sub
• ct,  Mr.  Craven said:
"On a carload of eight-year-old li.
C. western ycilow piine stumps distilled by this new process last sum
•ner, there were recovered to'the cold
basis over twenty gallons crude tu''
•lentil,e, a few gallons of light oil,
md 70 gallons of pine wood creosote,
or heavy tar oil, 40 pounds of pitch,
-1,0>1 pounds of charcoal among itui
"This process gives almost 60 p-r
■ cent of the wood when distilled as
>::harc}nl and liquid distillates, lt Is
known that the rc3ins tire In the
.stump, and other pitch wo d, anl
with this large percentage recovery,
there is warranted further demonstrations of its commercial value.
"Turpentine and resin are now o..-
ta'ine'l largely in the Southern Li'iii-.
ed States, from tapping the long
leaf pine. Thcre arc over 80O.0CO'af.rim
of virgin forest entered into cam
yeur to produce 75 per cent, to 8ii
0 per cent of the world's supply ol
these products, and when you realize
that there are also over (ourte. n bil
lion feet of long leaf pine, also cut
by the suwmills, the end of this pM-
cent Bource of supply is not fur in
she distance. Hence wc must use the
stumps und limbs of trees for this
industry, which are now not only a
wastn hut an almost insurmountable
blndiance in getting the settler on
thc land.
"It is proposed to inBtall such «
plant in the Cranbrook district of
IP it ish Columbia and arrangements
bave been made witb H.C. Moore, of
Blairmore, Alberta, to use these new
"The settler is to he paid a fair
sum for Inn stumps, at about i?5 or
Ml a cord. Powder is to be advanced
to him as u credit on his stumps
when they are delivered to the distillation plant. In Minnesota 'it is
said the farmers even haul tbeir
stuinpfl fifteen miles to a wood dis
tlllation plant. In fact, the Bottler
would be aided In the clearing Ol his
land to the fullest possible extent.
The plant to ho erected will bc but a
Hiiinll beginning, but one of. fur i en'h
mg   Importance   for   the province       in
putting the settler on the land, financing his land, clearing cost, and
otherwise materially helping him.
"Further, by these new processus,
instead of muking, say, mainly turpentine and tar oil, the latler of
which is difficult to mur'.iet sometimes, resin oils, tar and brewer's
pitch will be made by new relining
processes, which havc not been previously available to the other plants
in the industry. Hence the markets
are not nearly so confined us has
previously been the case, and a lar^e
variety of products can be made in
the industry.
Government Assistance.
"I think I have thc right to ask
govennment assistance for thc starting of the industry, in view of the
economic importance to the province
of clearing these waste cut-over lands
which the lumbermen have left behind. The helping of thc settler and
t.he establishment of a beginning ln a
vcry large industry.
"While a start, is to be made in the
Cranbrook district, it is of far-reaching importance to other districts
where plants will be erected to take
care of the crying needs of some such
system to linnnce the settler and tind
a market for the stump."

Values Of Farm Live Stock
Values are well maintained so far
as comparison with the three years
ended 191i is concerned; but during
1911 there has been a substantial reduction in the value both of horses
und of sw'inc. It is a cause of general complaint that the demand for
horses other than for military purposes has fallen off, and that prices
are less by from 25 to 40 or 50 per
cent than they were in 1913.
Owing to the high price of grain

In view of all that has bei.n said

to know thut not only hns this big
mail order house increased its sales
over five per cent, during the past
year, but also managed to pick up a
smull item like .SS,500,000 in profit.
How mnny retail hardware stores
increased their snles during 1911 b)

per cent?
There is only one explanation of
continued growth of this mail order
house, and of others equai'ly well

found in their superior buying ubil-

This mail order house has only one
method of getting business: Adver

They use no trading stamp schemes,
they have no niano conteBtB; they

straight merchandising advertisements ure their only me,ins of securing business.

a home in your community receives
more advertising material from one

So long ns the nvernge retailer re

of persistent, consistent and continuous merchandising ndverttlsementa—
just so long will the mnil order
