Hunting Party Lose Outfit in
River-Had to Give up Trip
Count Felix Hoyos and Count Franz
Hoyos and party who lelt on Saturday
last in thc s. s. Reveletoke tor Downie
Creek, from whenoe they were going
10 take an extended hunting trip in
the Big Bend, returned on Monday
having lost the greater part of their
outfit in the river. In an interview
yesterday afternoon with the distinguished visitors the Mail-Herald
repreientative learned that the party
had arrived salely at Downie Creek
and sent a portion of their outfit by
pack horse to Smith Creek, the canoe
not being able to carry all of it. On
Saturday tbe party whioh consisted of
the Count! Felix and Fnnz, T. Edwards, Hugh MoLean and A. Villette,
■tarted up the river in the canoe and
made about six milei tbat day, On
Sunday a series ol rapids were negotiated with safety and the party came
to the foot of Death Rapids st hall-
past two. Here, owing to the severity
of the current, the party disembarked
and proceeded to tow and poll tbe
canoe up stream through the quieter
places. Coming to a series of rocks it
was necessary to take the canoe a little
further out into the river. The counts
had hold of the tow line and were
dragging the canoe up while the other
men cautiously polled Irom the rocks.
Unfortunately on ron: ding a sharp
onrve the back sweep ol the current
caught the craft, rolling it over and
tearing the rope out of the hands of
those towing. Tbe whole outfit wai
lost and tbe canoe rapidly whirled
down stream. The men hastened
after it ss quick at they oould and
after a hard run over the rocks succeeded in rescuing it. Downie Creek
was reached again on Sunday night
and there wae nothing left but to
return to Revelstoke, the journey
being made in the canoe as far ss
practicable. On the trip down, Count
Felix shot a fine big lynx.
On being aiked what they intended
doing now they replied that would
probably take a short trip into the
hills to hunt bear and caribou, They
feel the ending of their
river trip very keenly but, as Count
Felix said, "the Columbia is indeed a
mighty river," they feel that it might
have been worse. On being questioned as to their visit to Revelstoke,
Count Felix said, "We have enjoyed
ourselves very much here. Your citizens are very good. You have a very
beautiful little city and Irom what we
oan see, a rich and promising one,"
As to hii impressions ot Canads,
he said that he had been to many
countries but few came up to Csnsda.

Lake Shore Flyer Kills Seven
on Track.
Chicago, Oct. 8—Without the sound
0! a bell or warning shriek ol a whistle, a great Mogul engine, drawing a
train ol sleepers in its wake, swept
like a comet out ol the darknese
through Gary, Ind., on Saturday
nighl and plowed a murderous path
through a struggling crowd ol men
and women on tl.e tracks.
Seven wero ground to pieces under
the wheels ol the flying train, which
continued on its way at a speed ol
fifty miles an hour, leaving only
blackness, pitiful cries, and shuddering, cowering men and women behind.
On the temporary platform at Gary,
without even a station light to guide
them, between 100 and 160 persons
had gathered to wait for a local train
bound to Chicago. This train was
almost an hour late, and ss the crowd
was so great, most 0! the passengers
passed over the westbound tracks in
order to enter the train from the Bide
opposite the station.
The attention of everyone was on
the approaching local train, The
crowd divided and stood baok out ol
danger when it drew up to tbe station,
This train had just stopped and tbe
passengers had not yet left the east-
bound tracks to board it when the
flyer Irom Chioago loomed out ol tbe
darkness sweeping around a slight
curve and dashed into the crowd on
the tracks.

In the Canadian West, civic
pride ii a splendidly developed
growth, only to be found in a young
snd thriving country, The outburst of rivalry between contiguous sections show an earnestness
■which is refreshing compared with
the indifference of older settled
communities—it is better that men
ihould vie and even fight with
each other in the carrying on of
municipal legislation, than that
they should spend all their time
and energies mooning or dreaming
of the past. Above all. public
business and matters relating to
civic improvement and interest,
should take first place and the
citizens should further the development ol their city with just as
much thought, time and care as
they do to their affairs, realizing
that it ie lor their own good, in
directly, to aid in the prosperity of
the community as a whole in order

One ol the most popular men of
tupay is now in Canada, and no
visitor has perhaps been received
with more general good will and
feeling among all people, than Dr.
Winnington Ingram, Bishop of
London. In tho many addresses
he has delivered none has had
more effect than his appeal to
Canadians to support their church,
and no matter what denomination
he urges co-operation wherever
possible. The following from one
oi his last speeches will instance
the spirit with which he touches on
the Canadian church-
"There are four things I want
the church people of Canada to do.
In the first place, to be cheerful, to
Bhow that cheerfulness in your
every day lives. Religion does not
mean you must have dull, sour
faces, far from it, it makes everyone
happy. You must reflect that
happiness and show the world that
Christianity teacheB the laws ol
human happiness.
Secondly, hold fast to Church
principles. The future of the
Church depends on this. Two
thirds ol the human race do not
yet know those principles and it is
your duty in this young country
to preserve those principles intact
and so help to mould the Christian-
ity of the future on the right lines.
Thirdly, be forward in all that
makes for goodness in everyday
life, and in the common advantages of civic life. Don't log behind and grumble if things go
wrong. It is your own faults, unless you do your part. Come boldly forward and take your share in
the work of building up your cities
and nation for the common good.
Fourthly, I want to see our grand
The Canadian General Electric Co.,
of Toronto, having received th" contract for the supply and installation of
thc new auxiliary light and power
plant in the city, will havo all their
work cut uut lor them to get things
in shape tor operation in February. In
looking over their plans and methods
ot their own particular lorm of gas
producer, we seo sumo very interesting
points which go to Bhow that the new
plant will be economical in use and
efficient in operation.
Tlio  gist uf a gas producer is the
passing of sir nu and air through red
hot   coal,  the  resultant  gas  being
w inlioil and cooled is then suitable lor
tlio engine.   Thc suction type adopted
by the council trom plans prepared by
tbe Canadian General  Electric Co.,
means that as tl.e engine piston goes
forward it draws a charge ol gas from
tbo   producer   automatically.    The
plant remains under leas than atmospheric pressure, consequently there is
no leu- ol explosion ol any sort.   This
producer is built of riveted steel plates,
uo cast iron being used, as is olten tbe
case, and the chance ol cracking due
to Bi.dden  changes  oi  temperature
caused by atmosphere or the injection
of culd water on hot metal, is thereby
eliminated.    In order to raise steam
in the plant, different makers use two
principles:   1 A  system  of  interval
vaporization when the cast iron boiler
type situated inside producer iB used.
2 Au  external  system,   where   hot
gase*.  trom the producer give up heat
to Borne system of boilers which differ
in style in various makes,    Tl.e Canadian  General Electric  Co. use the
latter system, since it possesses advantages,   a Thc external vaporizer cun
be cleaned while the plant is in lull
operation and without disturbing the
main points ot the producer,    b Thie
system avoids troubles when hard
water is used,  c It utilizes otherwise
waste heat in gases for raising steam
instead  of extracting  heat Irom the
liic itself, which is  not   economical.
Besides the  external  vaporizer,  the
Canadian General Electric Co's. patent
raises steam by injecting water through
a coil on a steel plate below  the fire
cage,  wiiich  is heated by heat taken
Irom  ashes and  radiation  Irom fire
bars; this source of heat is always
ready at any time, thus avoiding delay
until outgoing gases give up heat to
external vaporizer.    It is possible to
raise steam necessary lor the complete
plant by the coil only, while  the  external  vaporizer  is   being cleaned or
Otherwise out of use, without interfer
ing with continuous operation ol the
plant.   The external vaporizer usid is]
covered    by  the  Canadian  General
Electric Co's. patent; it is simple and j
ingenious in pattern, consisting of a

The most salient points in the
prosperity of any country and
nation, and points which have a
direct effect on the development
are the intuition of good and stable
laws. In the first instance, drawn
up with a view to benefitting the
the country as a whole; in the
second instance, when drawn up
and approved ol by the people, to
be lelt iintntnpiTi'il with and stable.
The importance ol this can never
be too seriously realized, when
consideration ol the facts is taken
and tbe reputation and popularity
of the country is at stake. In years
gone by British Columbia laws
have Ix-en subjected to many and
various changes and as governments come and go, each have a
few alterations to make, which, if
not changing the entire face, have
left considerable   marks of   the
mand interest and support. Who

Britain will have Canada laid before her in a manner which will
enable those who intend to emigrate
to this country to see for themselves
in a true and just light the condi
tion under which they will have to
live when making homes in Canada.
Moreover, the Motherland we trust
will take advantage ot this visit of

Essay by G. Elley which won
Prize Offered by Mr. A. C.
Flumerfelt for Best Description of B. C.'s Forest Wealth.
The province ot British Columbia is
endowed with greater natural resources than falls to the lot ot most countries, and this is especially true in
respect to her timber wealth, the
whole province consisting ol an sl-
most unbroken stretch ol lor.ut, extending Irom the 49lh parallel to
Alaska, and comprising the largest
and most compaot body of timber on
the American ooutinent. Along the
seaboard the country is jood, generally speaking very heavily wooded,
underbrush snd viiiei growing in
rioto.u contusion among tl.e standing
timber, and rendering progresi thru,
it impoii.ble in places. In ths interior,
however, the trees sre smaller and
more scattered, with an enti.e abience
ot undergrowth, their psrk-like appearance being a pleasing contrast to
the almost impenetrable tangle ol
tree lile lound in .he coast forest.
In dealing wilh the various lorms ol
timber growth common to the province, Douglas fir (or Oregon pine, as
it is lometiiiies termed) ranks tint in
importance. Thii tree has been
kuown to attain a height of 300 leet,
ranging from 6 to 8 Ieet in diameter
at the butt, its only rival in size being
tbe rsdwood ol Calilornia.
Fir forms about 60 per cent ot our
marketable timber, and although oou-
fined to no psrticular belt, attains its
greatest sizes in the valleys ol those
rivers emptying into the gull ol Georgia, and on Ihe eastern part ol Vanoouver island, the Utter district being
the n.oBt densely wooded area in British Columbia.
Tbe age of a lull grown fir averages
about five hundred yesrs, but specimens nix and even seven hundred
years are not rare, In the early
stagei ol the tree's growth the foliage
ii very thick, branches spreading out
Irom lhe trunk in all directions; these
gradually disappear, however, until
nothing remains but a lew stunted
limbs at the top, the lower portions
being comparatively' Iree ol knots.
The bark growth is heavy, ol a reddish
appearance, and eitemively used for
tanning purposes.
The commercial value ol this wood
ii to well known to merit ezteniive
mention, For general sll round purposes it hai no equal, especially in
heavy construction work, owing to its
ability to withstand enormous strains;
and in this respect is equal, il not
superior to oak, whioh wood it is
rapidly displacing, especially in tbe
building ol can. Tests have recently
been made by railway engineers on
several ol the large systemi with a
view to comparing the relative s|rength
ol the two woods, and in most instances tbeir reports have been favorable
to fir, particularly whe.e long timbers
are required. In one instance ten
pieces ol each wood were selected and
a lilt made until they broke, with the
result that the fir withstood Borne 600
pounds greater strain than oak, conclusively proving its superiority in
this regard, not to mention its udvan-
tige in lightness. Fir is also well
adapted for house construction, being
used in every portion ot the building.
Mention should also be made ol tbe
excellent spars snd masts procured
from tbis tree.
Next in commercial importance, ai
well ts size, comes the red ceJar. Although indigenous to all parts ol the
province, tbis trse doss not thrive si
well in the interior ai slong the coast,
where it attains an enormous growth,
almost equal to thst ol the Iir, eipeci-
ally at the butt, whioh has s tendency
to spread and ii generally hollow,
However, the interior, or mountain
cedar, ai it ii often termed, ii much
closer grained and considered superior
in grade to the coast produot.
Cedar ii noted for iti lightness and
the eaie with which it can be worked,
rendering it in great demand (or all
daises ol interior finish and factory
work. In the manufacture of shingles
however, tbis wood excels, the British
Columbia shingle enjoying a reputation second to none on the continent,
Owing to iti lasting qualities underground, cedar ii much uied lor fence
poiti snd foundations.
Hemlock grows in abundance along
the coast, but ii not so common in the
interior, except where the raintall ii
heavy. Hitherto, owing to the great
prejudice existing against it, the product ol this tree has not been extensively used. For a great many purposes, however, it ii equally ai serviceable as Hr, whioh it closely roiem-
bles, and is beginning to be more generally called lor, chiefly ss a substitute
(or the latter wood.
Spruce, in leversl varietiei, growi in
all parti ol ths province, but iti principal habitat lies along the ooast. To
the south it ii found interipsned
among the other trees, but further
north the greater portion ol tbe tim
ber consists amiutii ™ ireiy u, mi.
wood. Iii Ihe interior the uill y of
tho Columbia river a'so contains Isrgo
tracts ol first-dans spruce. Wn n
.....niitactiiied into lum'-or, it i-. ex-
ip.lsiVi ly Used lor h.ine construe i.n
purp .»i'", llio com miner grades being
ivnrktd up into hox ii;i! I.r which
they arc ad.nirab'y adapted, owing to
the extreme lightness ol tho wood and
tl.e tact that it is almost odor.ess.
Nf ither hen lock nor Bpruce attain
inch large proportions as fir or cedar
Iheir average height ranging Irom 75
to 100 leet.
The abovo mentioned form tho bulk
ol tho timber, but do not by sny
means complete tho lift. Yellow cedai
or yellow cypress, belongs to the same
family si red cedar, i.s dimensions
aud appearance being similar to the
former. It grows chiefly along the
northern coast and on islands adjaceni
thereto. For interior finish this cedar
il unequalled, It is also said to be
impervious to the attacks ol the teredo
and lasts well underground. Oak occurs in small quantities on the southern end ol Vanoouver island, but Ihe
trees are stunted and ol little value ai
lumber. Alder and poplar are common all ovir the southern part of tbe
province, where they thrive beat in low
lying ground and along the banks of
streams. O.ving to the softness ol
these woods they have not so Iar been
considered worthy ol attention from s
manulaoturing standpoint. There are
several varieties ol msple, the principal
being what ia known as "broad leaf,"
on account of ils large spreading
leaves, making il an excellent shade
tree. Owing to the curly appearance
ol the wood when cut, it iB also in
great demand Ior panel work. White
pine ol a very tine quality also ocoun
in small quantities. There are numerous other species ol tree growth, but
ss they do uot at present possess any
commercial value, further reierence to
them is unnecessary.
Canada takes first phce in tl.e list
of the world's timber areas, the total
lorestland ol the Dominion being
estimated at about 1,700,000,000 acres.
European Russia and tbe United
States come next with approximately
500,000,000 acres each; while British
Columbia alone contains something
like 183,000,009 acres, snd a comparison of the sbovs figures will show the
prominent position ocoupied by the
province in relation to the world's
timber supply. The growth here ii
muoh more dense than in other portions of the Dominion, the average
yield per acre along the coast and on
Vanoouver Island being about 45,000;
while in the interior it would probably
run (rom 20000, to 25,000 feet.
