Xioou, B. C. Al'BlHT >, 1-fl-
The loss to this province
every year from timber fires
is quite consideralilrHinl is one
which takes years to recover
trom. At this period of the
year when everything is dry
md the materials for a huge
conflagration so ready to hand,
the necessity for stringent precautions against the spread of
fire among the timber in the
district will be obvious to every
line. Carelessness on the
part of travellers and others
may lead to consequences that
might become very serious. _i
lighted match, a half smoked
cigar or the ashes from a pipe
may become the origin of a
fire which might easily prove
disastrous to life, not to mention the damage to the standing timber and buildings.
Already, this year, there has
been one or two disastrous
fires through part of the finest
timber in this district, though
happily no other damage was
done. Settlers throughout
the district will find it to their
advantage to help in every way
to check the outbreak of these
fires and to notify the authorities at once when they have
knowledge of one, and it will
also be beneficial if they will
see that the precautions which
are necessary under the Bush
Fires Act in clearing brush are
observed, and that this clearing
is done at the time of year
when the spreading of such a
fire can be easily checked. In
another column we give a
synopsis of the Act with regard to this. A bush fire or
forest fire is in many ways a
more serious matter than a
prairie fire, rhe latter may be
stamped out after it has once
started, but if either of the former get a firm hold, very little
can be done but allow them to
burn out. As this matter of
good timber is one ot the district's most profitable and necessary resources, it is with
pleasure we note that the provincial government have seen
fit to appoint a fire warden to
look after this matter, and it is
hojied that settlers in the district will combine in their
efforts with him to prevent the
outbreak of fires which would
soon lessen the amount of
available timber in the district.

Regulating Sale of Liquor.
A number of the citizens of Los Angeles have become converted to the Got
henhiirg system of regulating the sale of
l'quor and the municipality is shortly to
vote upon a by-law intended to give the
experiment a fair test. Its principal
features are: No treating; only the
purest liquors to be sold; bartenders
given a [erceutago on all "soft'' drinks to
further the sale of non-intoxicants; no
violation of existing laws; no liquors
sold to minors or drunken men; no
women allowed iu saloons; and the city
to obtain the profits. The plan has been
proposed hy certain men of means and
lnrlueiice, who, if the city gives authority,
will organize to acquire the saloons and
turn them over to a holding company. A
novel provision in the municipal cons'! ���
tutiun of Los Angeles provides for a vote
on any by-law for which a petition has
been sigucd by fifteen per cenl. of those
voting at the last general election. The
petition is accompanied by the legiila-
tion propose I, and the city council may
either pass the legislation forthwith or
call at once for a special election. If the
petition is signed hy more than seven
pit cent, then tho subject must be voted
ou at the next general election.

The shame of a Majuba Hill,

And Kugland makes no ��i_o.

(If freedom, chosen land,
Our rulers pats our rule and race
Into the stranger s hand.
At a great price y.iu loosed the yoke
Neath which our brethren lay,
(Your dead that perished ere 'twae broke
Are scarcely du*t today).
Think you ye freed them at that price I
Wiike, or your toil i�� vain

To sell them hack again.

That to their hurt they  kept their vjws,
That for their faith they died,

Darcy Island Lazeretto Is Said to Ba
The care of the lepers in British Coin ulna having been assumed by the
Ottawa government, better arrangements
than have hitherto existed have to he
made for housing and caring for these
unfortunate!. The agricultural department of the D minion Government,
which has control of quarantine, will
tako charge of the lepers.
Dr. Watt, superintendent at Williams
Head, has been asked to report on nee-
ceiary changes and improvements. The
provincial government has transferred
1> t-.-y Island to the Domini, n for use as
* lazeretto, hut as the station will be
under Dr. Watts' supervision, and as
Darcy island may be found to he too far
a*ay from Williams Head to permit of
fr.ijuent visitation, the snitahility of
Albert Head is being considered, lf it
can he made available it will probab'y
b ��� adopted and the Darcy island colony
removed thereto.
Colonel Baker Dead.
A cablegram announcing Ihe sudden
death of l.ient t'.i .lames Baker, at
I'aikstown, Dorsetshire, England, hy
heart failure supervening an altaek of
pneumonia, was received laat Wedms-
d.yat Cranhrook. Col. Baker, who,
probably, more than any other man, was
i.lentihed with the upbuilding ol .he
prosperity of East Kootenay in which he
waa very lareely interested. He wai
associated prominently with the early
history of the development of the coal
industry in East Kootenay and to him
may ba attributed in a large measure the
construction of the C.P.R. through the
Crow's Neat Pass. He represented
Cranhrook, called after the name of the
o .1 Baker home in Dorset, in the British
Columbia legislature from the time the
ci'y had a name up to 1-00, and was
provincial secretary in the Turner gov
eminent. He occupied many offices nf
trust and responsibility in the British
Columbia government and waa a man to
whom tne province  ae a  whole  owes a
heavy obligation of gratitude. The
keened*, regret ia expressed by representatives of every class for the comparatively early demise of Col. Baker,
who was in the prime of his intellectua
I e in his 72nd year.
V. Hyde Baker and Lord Cobham are
the eiecutors nf the will of the deceased
colonel, uinlei winch Mr. Baker, it ia understood, will benefit very largely.
Fire Warden Appointed.
It bert Pollard of Nicola, who is well
known to residents of the valley, has been
appointed fire warden for this dittriet,
and entered on his duties Monday
The appointment is one which will
meet with approval from settlers
throughout the district generally, and iu
view of the forest fires which have been
prevalent near Iron Mountain thia summer, will tend to prevent the outbreak
of such fiies in the future and to conserve the fine body of limber which is
one of this district's natural resources.
Started Work on Big Canal.
The firm of Maedonell A. Czowski are
already at work at Bullion inconneetion

traction steam ihovils for the firm have
armed at Kamloops and will he t.k n in
at once. The prodigious weight of these
necessitate precautious being taken m
con lying them into the country, and
certain bridges not strong enough to
carry the   machine, have to be avoided.
Transvaal Reconstruction.
Winston Spencer Churchill, parlia-
ui.-ii ary secretary for 'he Colonial olti.e,
In. ou lined in the House of Commons
the government proposal rcgtrduig the
reconstruction to be granted in the
Tra i-vaal.
The guiding principle, he said, would
be not to make any difference between
Briton and Boer, but to extend to both
ihe fullest privilege* of British citizen-
All males, 21 years old, who had resided in the Tratisvaal, would be e.itltlrd

For the Hrst parliament there will be
a second chamber of 15 members, nominated by the Crown. During the first

have a liquid, the product of Canada,

anyone can get who has the "necessary,"
the name of which is "Joeseagram," and
as for making one see things, this liquid
can put the Indian drug completely in
