Mrs. Annie M. Bradley was acquitted
! this week of the charge of murder of
ernment by the British Columbia Tim-
tx r and Forestry Chamber of Commerce,
which was successfully organised last
week at a representative gathering of
timber interests.
Dr. Judson F. Clark, secretary of
the organization, stated to The Province, that the petition to the government will be presented in the interests
of the Crown U well as In those of the
timberman, the timber market, and the
consumers of lumbar generally who are
really the people of the entire Dominion.
"Under present regulations," explained Dr. Clark, "the Ufa of a timber
license is twenty-one years, the license
being renewable from year to year on
payment of the regular fee. Such an
enormous amount of timber has been
placed under license during the past
twelve or eighteen months-aftd the
most of it is valuable���lhat the time
will certainly come when in order to
protect their interests in the timber
they have been paying the annual fee j
upon, the holders of the licenses will be
ft reed to log it all. As the time approaches when the licences will not be
renewable, there will be feverish cutting
uf logs all over the coast.
The result will be that the timber
market will be unable to absorb the cut,
the trade will be, ruined, and only the
bfot of the timber will be taken off the
hind���tha poorer trees being allowed to
stand in the slashings to be burned by
ttye lirst forest lire Which occurs.
wain, these half denuded timber claimi
will be the worst kind^flire-traps, and
the Government will lose h'nq/idi.of
thousands of dollars in stumpage, because only the best trees will be felled
tn supply the demand, which is certain
to be capricious when the supply is'
ove.rbundant. It will be a veritable
slaughter of timber.

Saturday at Phoenix. After a conference with B, W, Bodgea, the local
manager, Mr. Graves itated that the
directors of the Company had
to re-open the mines on December Dili,
and the smelter two or three days later,
giving employment to some 900 men
when operating at full capacity. Asked
for a statement, Mr. Graves said:
" Since the closing of our mines and
smelter about three weeks ago, because
of the low price of copper and our high
operating costs, we have been able to
bring about some reductions in our
cost of supplies and general expenses,
and have been approached by some of
our former employees asking If we could
resume on the scale of wages paid about

Valley Coal Basin. In the opinion of
some experts, there lias been a decided
expression of opinion that the best coal
in tlie diatrict would be found on the
property of the Diamond Vale Company,
and certainly from the showing! at the
bottom of the present shaft which is
being sunk, the opinion is not without
corroboration. Through the shaft which
is being sunk at present, those in charge
of operations expect lo take up 700,000

acres wliich it will tap. Besides this,
than is a large block of iantl practically
owned by lhe company, which has been
pronounced equally good and a very
large tonnage may be expected from
this source.

certainly has earned it, and the faet

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The time has passed, says the
Colonist, when the Speech with
which Parliament is opened hail
any special significance. Usually
the document consists only of
platitudes or of statements about
things that every oue knew already.
His Excellency's speech in Ottawa
last week was not a conspicuous
exception to the rule. The references to the expansion of trade,
the increase in revenue, the volume
of immigration and the temporary
check due to financial stringency,
were purely formal; so also were
those to the Imperial Conference,
the French treaty, the fisheries
dispute in which Newfoundland is
involved, the Oriental question, the
Quebec bridge disaster, and the
post office and the budget. There
remain the allusions to railway
construction and to new measures.
The statement that'' contracts are
about to be let for the construction
of the prairie section of the Grand
Trunk Pacific west of Edmonton,
and immediate steps will be taken
for the commencement of work at
both the eastern and western ends
of the mountain division," and
that '' thus in a short time the
whole work from Moncton to the
Pacific ocean will be under vigorous construction," if it means
what the words actually imply,
is interesting news, about as interesting as any that usually finds
its way into a governor-general's
speech, but for ourselves, we shall
wait development 'before growing
enthusiastic. The new measures
promised will provide for the
government control of telegraphs
and telephones, a step in the
direction of government ownership
which ought not to be unwelcome
to the Conservative members of
Parliament; the extension of the
boundaries of Manitoba, a simple
act of justice; the amendment of
the election law and the amendment
of the Dominion Lands Act. This is
a very good programme as far as it
goes, but until the measures themselves are brought down, any
definite expression of opinion would
be valueless.

were put on record. Mr. Gotoh

agreements that would throw any
further light on the subject, and in

A Splendid Deal.
British Columbia is so prosperous and
the government has so much ready cash
at its disposal that it is repaying loans
before maturity. Hon. R. G. Tatlow,
Minister of Finance, has just paid back
half a million dollars of the famous
million dollar loan that Premier
Mcllride's government was forced to
negotiate when it first came into power
three years ago. This is particularly
satisfactory when it is considered that
the government was paying six per
cent, interest for the loan, while money
lying to its credit in the banks brings
(inly half that rate. Ily settling, the
people of British Columbia make a clear
three per cent, interest on half a million
dollars for a number of years.
Awards to B. 0. Fruit.
The Royal Horticultural Society has
awarded the Gold Medal to the British
Columbia Government exhibit of fruit.

All Provinces May Compete.
The executive committee of His Excellency's musical and dramatic trophy
competition which will take place in
Ottawa during the week commencing
February 24th, decided for various reasons to throw the competition open to
the whole of Canada and Newfoundland,
irrespective of provinces. The committee, however, reserve the right to
reduce number of entries from any one
city or province in case the total number of entries exceeds the number
which can be conveniently handled during the week's competition in Ottawa.
All entries, therefore, instead of being
forwarded to the chairmen of respective
provinces may in future be sent to
F. C. T. O'Hara, honorary secretary,
Ottawa.
The two handsome trophies, at present held by Winnipeg and Quebec, will
again be olfered.
