RESERVE ALL
TIMBER LANDS
Provincial Government Takes
Action to Conserve Natural
Resources and to Prevent
Speculation.
v 'Victoria, Dec. 27.—A reserve has
been placed on all tbe unslaked timber
of British Columbia by this provincial
executive, though it has been under
consideration for some time. The decision is in order that the forest
wealth of the province may be conserved and to prevent timber being
staked merely for speculative purposes.
In all some 6,600,000 acres of Umber
land in tbe province have been staked
and the revenue from thit for the last
fiscal year amuunted to over $1,215,000.
Though, the area of the total timber
lands of the province is estimated at
over 182,000,000 acres this is regarded
aB an excessive figure and at all event-
that which has been taken up is either
the most accessible or tbe most valuable.
The mere staking of timber does not
insure the marketing of the product
immediately, as the licensee has 21
yeara in whioh to strip his lands.
Many of the holdings have been purchased by speculators who look t..
turning it over and not to handling it
themselves. It is thought lhat the
new order-in-council will encourage
the bona fide, logger tu purchase and
manufacture the product, in this way
ensuring a supply of lumber for the
development which the province is
undergoing and wili undergo in the
approaching years,
Premier McBride on being interviewed upon tbe announcement said
that he felt satisfied that when the
chief commissioner of lands and works
presented his views to the people of
British. Columbia there would not be
two opinions offered as to the wisdom
of the move. The only end sought by
the government was what was best In
the public interest. They had demonstrated tbis In connection with the
other resources of the province in the
past. Their chief endeavor in the past
had been that the resources of the
province should make a proper return
to the provincial treasury,
The decision of the government bas
been taken only after the most careful
consideration.
In view of the depletion of the timber resources of Eastern Canada as
the Eastern and Southern States, the
government had regarded their present move as advisable. Ample timber
had been staked to supply the mills of
the province for years to come.
With regard to the question of
forest protection .Premier McBride
states that the intention of the chief
commissioner was to take the utmost
precautions to have the forests ae
thoroughly protected as was possible.
It seems to be tbe general belief that
all staking] made prior to yesterday
will not be affected by the action of
the government, but no title can be
secured to timber staked to-day.
APPEALED
DECISION
Judgment is < that the Chief
Commissioner Can Change
His Mind—Revelstoke Timber Case.
Victoria, Dec. 27.-»-Acting on
behalf of the Big Bend Lumber
Company, a Revelstoke concern,
H. B. Robertson on Friday presented a petition to the Chiel Justice by way oi appeal Irom a decision of the Chief Commissionerof
Lands and Works. Deputy Attorney-General MacLean appearing
for the Department.
From the petition it appears that
the company had staked   three
facts cannot be queitioned, but the
point raised yesterday was that the
chief commissioner having once
announced hia decision to permit
the company and Blyth to tender
was functus officio, and could not
ohange hie decision once given any
more than a judge can altera
delivered judgment. Hia Lordship,
however, held that the clause giving the chief commissioner power
to call for tenders for a licence
must be construed as giving him
power to vary the terms of the
competition, The petition was
consequently refused.

It should be said that the application yesterday also showed that

the reason why the application for

who was very busy elsewhere. It
was also shown that the oompany
had spent 14,000 in constructing a
flume intended to oarry the logs
cut on these* three sections and another, and had been merely waiting
for the survey to apply ior the
licences and complete the work.
The Lands and Works Department, however, apparently thought
the number of times the ground
was restaked suspicions, and refused
to issue the licences, but instead
invit/id tbe company and Blyth to
tender for the licences in a competition to be open to everyone.

Fortunately no oue was hurt,
the only casualty being a mule

caused by the heating apparatus
setting fire to some of the explosives.
The explosions occurred at five

RESERVE ALL
TIMBER LANDS
Provincial Government Takes
Action to Conserve Natural
Resources and to Prevent
Speculation.
Victoria, Dec, 27.—A reserve has
been placed on all the unstated timber
of British Oolumbia by the provincial
executive, though it haa been under
consideration for some time, The decision is in order that the forest
wealth of the province may be conserved and to prevent timber being
staked merely for speculative purposes.
In all some 6,600,000 acres of timber
land in the province have been staked
and tbe revenue from this for the lasl
fiscal year amounted to over $1,275,000.
Though, the area of the total timber
lands uf the province is estimated at'
over 182,000,000 acres this is regarded
as an excessive figure and at all event-
that which has been taken up is either
the most accessible or tbe most valuable.
The men staking of timber does not
insure the marketing of the product
immediately, as the licensee has 21
years in whieh to strip his lands.
Many of the holdings have been purchased by speculators who look t..
turning it over and not to handling it
themselves. It is thought tbat the
new order-in-council will encourage
the bona fide, logger to purchase and
manufacture the product, in this way
ensuring a supply of lumber for the
development which *>s province is
undergoing and will undergo in the
approaching years.
Premier McBride on being Interviewed upon the announcement said
tbat he felt satisfied that when the
chief commissioner of landa and works
presented his views to tbe people of
British, Columbia there would not be
two opinions offered as to the wisdom
of the move, The only end sought by
the government was what was best in
the public interest, They bad demonstrated this In connection with the
other resources of the province in the
put. Their chief endeavor in the past
had been that the resources of the
province should make a proper return
to the provincial treasury.
The decision of the government has
been taken only after the most careful
consideration.
In view of the depletion of the timber resources of Eastern Canada as
the Eastern and Southern States, the
government had regarded their present move as advisable. Ample timber
had been staked to supply the mills of
the province for years to come,
With regard to the question of
forest protection .Premier McBride
states that the intention of the chief
commissioner was to Uke the utmost
precautions to have the forests as
thoroughly protected as was possible.
It seems to be tbe general belief that
all staklngs made prior to yesterday
will not be effected by the action of
the government, but no title can be
secured to timber staked to-day,
APPEALED
DECISION
Judgment is that the Chief
Commissioner Can Change
His Mind—Revelstoke Tim*
ber Case.
Victoria, Dec. 27.—Acting on
behalf of the Big Rend Lumber
Company, a Revelstoke concern,
H. B. Robertson on Friday presented a petition to the Chief Justice by way of appeal from a decision of the Chief Commissioner of
Lands and Works. Deputy Attorney-General MacLean appearing
for the Department.
From the petition it appears tbat
the company had staked   three
facte cannot be questioned, but the
point raised yeBterday was that the
chief commissioner having once
announced his decision to permit
the company and Blyth to tender
was functus officio, and could not
ohange his decision once given any
more than a judge can altera
delivered judgment, His Lordship,
however, held that the clause giving the chief commissioner power
to call for tenders for a licence
must be construed as giving him
power to vary the terms of the
competition, The petition was
consequently refused.

timber claims in February, 1906,
but instead of applying for the licences restaked them several times.
Finally about a year, afterwards
Bert Blyth, of Revelstoke, stakee
the same ground and adversed tbe
company's application for licences
when that application was finally
made, on the grounds that the land
had been continually restaked to
avoid the expense of taking out
licences, that the oompany had. nol.
acted in a bona fide manner and
tbat consequently his own application for the licences should be-
granted, although he had staked
the ground after the company's
stakee were in.
It should be said that the application yesterday also showed that
the company had acted in a bona
lide manner, although the ground
had been restaked by them a number of times, It was shown that
the reason why the application for
licences was postponed was on account of the company being unable
TERRIFIC
EXPLOSION
Hamilton Powder Company's
Works near Nanaimo Blown
to Atoms—Loss Estimated at
About $20,000.
Nanaimo, B. C, Dec. 27.—An ex-
.plosiqn last Sunday morning at the
Hamilton Powder Company's works
at Departure Bay completely destroyed two of the mixing buildings
and did considerable damage
around the works, twisting rooms
into grotesque shapes, pulling out
sash and doors and doing other
damage.
The lost will be about 120,000
and will be' repaired within a
month's time. The explosion wae
felt in Vancouver and New Westminster. At Ladyomith it was lelt
as strong as in Nanaimo. Of the
buildings destroyed  not a stick

to secure the services of its surveyor
who was very busy elsewhere. It
was also shown that the oompany
had spent $4,000 in constructing a
flume intended to carry the logs
cut on these three sections and another, and had been merely waiting
for the survey to apply lor the
licences and complete the work.
The Lands and Works Department, however, apparently thought
the number of times the ground
was restaked suspicious, and refused
to issue the licences, but instead
invited the company and Blyth to
tender for the licences in a competition to be open to everyone.
The Timber Act provides that an
appeal from a decision of \ cl.iel
commissioner in the exercise of hii
discretion lies in a pointof law
only, and thai bis decision on the
remains to indicate where they
stood. They disappeared as if by
magic, being practically blown into
fine dust. *
Fortunately no oue was hurt,
the only casualty being a mule
that was hit about a mile away
with a piece of lead. The explosion is supposed to have been
caused by the heating apparatus
setting fire to some of the explosives.
The explosions occurred at five
o'clock in the morning and the vi'
bration was so heavy as to tl.or
oughly arouse and terrify the town
There were two detonations with
about a second's duration of time
between them.

WEDNESDAY, DEC. 28, 11)07
1907-1908.
Tbe year which is fust drawing
to a close litis marked a very distinct advance in the development
of Revelstoke and is one over which
our citizens can look back with
satisfaction and thankfulness. Kevelstoke bas emerged from the chry-
sali- condition of a small inland
town, into one of the most important points in the province. The
population has considerably increased within tl.e year, and buildings bave multiplied and construction work has been active to keep
pace with the constant arrival of
newcomers. Old established linns
have enlarged their premises and
increased their accommodation and
many new places ol business have
opened up, all with BUCcesful result-. Great strides have been
made in municipal improvement
and many valuable projects are
now under way which will all have
their benefit for the general [ ubl
It is safe then to say tha'. 1907 bas
been pro-:-.-: ;- ..;. i has seen Kevelstoke slowly but surely (orging
ahead. The prospects lor tl,.- com*
ing year arc equally bright,
fact brighter, since it i- bi | I tl al
the present de] ression will in
. rl; iprii: be n '•■■ ■ n;.l lhe
hum of industry all over tl..
try be beard again. Judging fr im
tl.e past and with th'- most conservative estimate o! tiie outlook tor
the future, the people of Revelstoke
have every reason to congratulate
th. twelves on tl.e favorable | osi-
tion now occupied by this city and
the Mail-Herald feels that ii '...v
itboul an)  Bense ..f inappropriate-- wish fill it- readers in every
orner of the globe, whii h i- sy-
lonymous with the whole community, A Hnppy and a Prosperous New Year. While we thank
all our patrons for their genoroui
issistance during the past twelve
months we invite a continuance ol
iln same in the coming year and
trust that our efforts for the gootl
t.f the community, the welfare of
the city and the upbuilding ol citizenship have not and will not fall
un unprofitable and barren soil.
Arrangements are nearly compile for the Hospital Bull on Friday, .Inn. 3, at the opera house.
This will be the sixth annual event
and promises to lie a success in
every way. The hospital is the
most deserving institution in town
and one which evory citizen should
support, Dull times and a seeming
financial depression has put the
district into a stale of semi-idleness
and with no industries running the
outside support to the hospital is
extremely small. The Arrowhead
li'ispitiil has been forced to. close
down, and even in our local institutions the stress of bard times lias
been and i.s being felt. A hospital
is a place where each and everyone
of us may perchance be compelled
to seek aid, as no man is immune
from accidenl or physical ailment
and we should remomber that a
hospital cannot exist without funds
and still continue in its state of
utility lo the public. The hospital
ball is merely n charitable event
and as such should be patronized;
by all, whether tbey can danc or
n.ii. If the citizens would look on
it in this light nnd support thc
movement on behalf J of ibe sick
and needy as it should be supp rted,
the results wetild be far greater and
tbo accompanying benelit to the
hospital considerably it creasi I,
Charity begins at bonie, iind -tliis

Pervades Revelstoke,
Christmas of 1007 will puss quietly
into history with nothing in particular
worthy of remark to distinguish it
from ils predecessors. The weather
was mild nml snow fell steadily in
ii light siU'i of way as if to remind
people thnl Christmas could not be
spenl in a iiltinj, manner without this
old-fashioned and necessary comple
ment, .Many eitlzous indulged in
sleigh riding while others took walks
abroad, but tho majority kept within
d.oi'8 and sitting round cozy Hies .....1
stoves allowed the warmth and com-
fori in instill Into theni the genial,
kindly spirll which Christmas Tide
breathes over all, Despite the comparatively l.fii.l limes iuul genorul

Interesting Address by R. P.
Pettipiece.
We mnv not all agree with the
Socialist? uiul their ideas of social
anil economic problems, at the
same time we must confess that a
Socialist who understands political
and social economy from their
point of view is not a man to meet
in debate upon a public platform
without careful preparation and
study; such a man is R. P. Pettipiece, whose statements are certainly to the point, although no
orator. Taking up the present in-
duBtrial and linanciul crisis he
started in by showing how inevitable these panics were in a system
of society where production is based
nnd put in action solely upon making profits, where the machinery
and natural resources are in llie
hands ol the lew anil lhe ninny
work for wages solely regulated by
the supply of and demand for labor
in their particular industry. Jf,
he asked his audience, the workers
received only 20 per cent of what
they on the average hy the aid of
machinery produced, and, as at the
present time the capitalistic or
non-producing class were utterly
unable to consume and waste the
other 80 per cent of llieir (llie
workers'] products, what was lo
become of the remainder of, llieir
products? These periodical crises
were cm-ed l.y llu.-e iineoii-uiiifil
commodities or products becoming
piled up iii the market's »f industrial countries until the manufacturers had to close their factories
until such time as these surplus
products should be used up aud
they could start the same cycle over
again. How, he asked his audi-
dence, could the workers buy hack
and consume the products of iheir
toil if they only received from 10
to 20 per cent of its value wherewith to do so? Any child with
average intelligence should be able
to grasp the impossibility of such
a proposition.
He went on to speak of his trip
east saying how the trades unions
of the different places lie had visited were rapidly coming to see the
inevitableness of the new system ot
society. Referring lo the incident
of his comrades' refusing to stand
upon the entrance of Dunsmuir to
the local house, he asked if they
were not fully justified in their
actions by the fact of the disclosures
regarding Jupanese contract laborers and also Chinamen working
underground contrary to the laws
of the lawB of the country in his
[Dunsmuir'sJ mines on Vancouver
Island
The onlv solution lie continued
was the social ownership of all
public necessities such as machinery, natural resources, transportation facilities, eto., and the doing
away with the competitive system
whereby men were forced to light
and trample upon each other in
the struggle for existence and their
labor is often a superfluous article
on the market, causing an in finite
amount of misery, crime and star
vation.
lie touched upon the combine of
lumber dealers in Alberta ainl
showed how prices Ihere were prohibitive to the f'.i'tiier and consi-
quenlly mills here were closed
down. The salnitin canning industry, mining, transportation and
milling interests were treateil to a
review which shows that Perm at
all events is no respecter of lhe
oapitalistio interests that uccording
to him are binding tis up on nil
sides. He concluded by telling his
audience that if they liked the
present system whereby They practically paid tbeir busses for the
privilege ol working for theni,
whereby men are driven to crime,
women to prostitution and children
to supporting families when they
should be at school, to vote for it
as they have been doing, conservative or liberal, it mattered not
which.
NEW RAILROAD
From Kamloops to Salmon river
to Exploit Gypsum Beds
Operalions will he commenced
early next spring on the construction ol a sleam railway frnm Kum-
lnops to the Salmon Uiver, a distance ol forty miles, It will pass
through the town of Grand Pr irie,
and will open up i. particular!)
line agricultural land some ol
whicli has us yet been UDOUlllvated,
New towns and villages will, it is
intinpateil, spring up along the
line of thr new railrood.
The line i-; promoted by a party
.f American capitalists, and its
original purpose is to provide
transportation fur the gypsum I ids
at Salmon Itiver, and which are
now in the hands of this syndicate.
The new linn will cost over a quarter of it million dollars and will
be well equipped, It will be standard gauge nnd it is expected that
there will be :.t least .two passenger
trains a day passing o'ver it.
The plans of the syndicate include the erection of a big plant
just outside ot Kamloops and there
the gypsum will he taken and
manufactured into plaster paris
and other bi-products, The planl
will cost $100,000 mul uill employ
from   two   to  three hull.Ireil'lliell.

NO SEA SICKNESS
Apparatus Installed on German Liner.
Sea-sickness is to be abolished,
and the gyroscope is to accomplish
this by balancing the sea-going
vessels so that the force of ll.e
waves does not roll the steamerB.
Dr. Sohlick, the German engineer
who with Yarrow antl Tweedy of
the Hrilish yards designed tlie Yar-
row-Schlich and Tweedy balanced
engines, lias experimented on a
German torpedo boat with a gyroscope, and tliis is staeed to be very
successful in nullifying the roll,
A German paper says the Hamburg-American line has purchased
the patent rights for Germany of
the Schlick gyroscope, and has ordered the Vulcan work at Stettin
to build an apparatus at a eosl of
$87,500 for installation on the
company's
vans, a small vessel of S04 tons.
If the success expeoted iB attained
it is probable that larger vessels
will receive the apparatus.

sawmill at Trout Lnko Cily. The
company luts already invested $20,000
in a mtllslte and in acquiring a portion
of the townsite for residential purposes.
"The development of mining properties in the Lardeau is making steady
progress. A gang nf 2". men lias been
at work on the Broadview for the
past eighteen in.ml lis and has opened
up sufficiently large budies of ore to
warrant the Installation of reduction

and Bluebell, adjoining tbe Broadview, are heing operated by the True
Fissure Mining company of Cincinnati,
Ohio, E. A. Haggen, M.E., of Revelstoke, and Newton E, Emmons, M.E.,
of Pittsburg, have examined the properties of tlie True Fissure compnny,
and Ihey estimate that there is $8,000,-

The silver Cup continues to ship
steadily batches of high grade ore.
The present depth of the workings is
