increasing in southern China nnd Ihe
Herman mission at Nullum has been
destroyed and the native city of Wu
Chow is no longer considered snfe tor
foreigners. At the llogue forts target
practice is going on. Proclamations
sent to the recruiting stations threaten olllcers   who defraud thc troops.

that Li Hung (hang was preserving

is asserted that during his Viceroynl-

Never mind his motive, but consider
rather whether this sweeping restriction is desired by the people of the
Province. If it is, let the Hill pass;
if not, knock il out, In coining to a
conclusion, however, there are inunv
things to consider, and a few of tbem
oughl to stand as a fatal barrier
the measure
FOREST FIRES,
A Canadian Forestry Association
was formed Bome months ago at Ottawa. This was a sort of Sequel to
the establishment ofa Forestry bureau
in connection with tin' Department of
the Interior, It was not until after
much pleading and protesting by the
few who take an interest in the  ques-
tion that the Qovernment i sented to
this step. It had to be driven to it.
Soon after the bureau was organised,
witli an excellent chief In the person
of Mr. B. Stewart of Colllngwood in
charge, u public meeting was held ami
an Association formed, Intended as a
help to thc bureau in protecting the
forests we have and in encouraging
tree planting where tbey arc not. Sir
Henri July wns elected President, and
a better choice could not have been
made. Mr. Bostock was chosen us
Vice-President for liritisli Columbia.
A few evenings hence, In Vancouver,
a meeting will be beld witli the purpose of establishing B brunch Association in this Province.
This is a move in the right direction, provided, that is, that the promoters of thc meeting do not content
themselves with the mere act of organisation, Sir Henri Joly is at the
back of it. however, aud ns long ns he
kas health of body and vigor of mind
he will take good care that the Association is something more than a name.
Tlie movement comes opportunely.
There has been a long spell of hut and
dry weather, and throughout the
greater portion of the Mainland the
conditions arc favorable for forest
fires. Iu uot a few districts are fires
raging, with more or loss severity und,
consequently, with more or less destruction. Wc in this locality havo
au object lesson at bund in the tire
thnt for two days past lias been
threatening the destruction of Ymir.
Up to tbe present writing it is believed that the danger has been averted, but any moment may come word
that the little town has been obliterated. That a calamity such as this
can be prevented by a Forestry Association formed at Vancouver we
should not care to say absolutely, but
If by Forestry Associations nnd other
active agencies the people of British
Columbia do not awaken to nn inter-
eBt in forest preservation there is
nothing on earth more certain than
that this Province will lose heavily in
one of the richest of itB natural resources.
The Ymir fire had some origin; it
did not start itself. It is the business of the Qovernment to And out
how it did start and to punish the
person responsible for it. The burning of several scores of buildings may
be a small matter; but thc destruction
of large areas of valuable timber
( not, and the menace to human life in
thc destruction of a town isniost seri-
oms of all. Thc country mny stand
thc loss of personal property und the
interruption to business that follows,
but the individual sufferers are apt to
be loss complacent under the iilllic-
tion. It is because our Governments
have not heen earnest enough iu preventing these constantly threatening
disasters thnt Forestry Associations
have become necessary. Whether
these can stir onr Qovernment tu 11
proper interest in tlie matter wc do
not know, and it may be dangerous to
wait to see. There is in session in
Nelson today n Congress of Associated
Hoards of Trade, and here it has a
question ready lo hand for its consideration, of at least equal Importance
with any other that enn possibly engage its attention, Perhaps it may
think it wortli while to represent to
the (ioverninenl at Victoria thut there
arc many In the Province who Bee with
regret and alarm the forest destruction that is going   and that .-,1] object most strongly tu the constant risk
to their own lives niul property.

the Nelsons, the famous publishers of
Edinburgh, nud his sou Qeorge is
now managing the business of that
house. The World might have gone
further und added that a short time
ugo he was selected as the next Liberal candidate for one of the Edinburgh constituencies. Vie shall therefore expect to see him in the next
liritish Parliament, and another Canadian, Mr. Blake, will have the pleas
ure of associating with the Boll of his
old political tutor.
Until this dry spell shall be broken
every man in the neighborhood with
a grain of sense will carefully watch
himself to see that be does not the
least thing to contribute to a bush
lire. The town authorities are to be
commended for giving notice that the
law will be enforced in this municipality. Where there is no municipal
organisation Qovernment officials ore
expected to display such vigilance as
is possible under the circumstances
that may exist. Miners especially
Bhould be on tbeir guard, as mines
and mining camps are more or less
surrounded with timber. This is a
critical time, and a lighted match
end may do more harm in a day or
two than tlie entire population of
British Columbia could repair in a
year.
