The energetic campaign lur the extension 'if the lumber export trade ol

upon the (uture ol the lumbering In-

"Many vague estimates ol tl x-

Because we need reliable Information

survey. The figures obtained give us
something definite to go upon, Besides the eight and i ne-thlrd i

imirters of a million acres held un-

Describins the main features of thc
parlous    tenures    the minister   Baid:
"Crown erant timber, of course is
nst deeded timber—there is nothing
to explain  al >ut  that. Then the old
.eases  nre simple  enough— rentals   of

period the bulk ea    will

that 1 may claim  that   the result is a
thoroughly sound    piece of conatruc-

British Columbia timber licenses     a

"For a time n« solution ol this
problem could be found. In the end

Becurlty of tenure to the licensee-

scale. If the wholesale selling price

toes up above a certain figure the
royalty goea up. If it goes below
that figure then- is ., definite royalty
