MINERS' INCH.
A resident in Victoria recently sent
to a friend in the interior of the province, who is deeply interested in the irrigation question, a copy of the r sport
of the irrigation commission, issued a
short time ago by the provincial government. In acknowledging receipt of
the report the recipient wrote: "Truly
this is a valuable document, and the
government are deserving of much
commendation for having secured the
services of one eminently capable of
probing so deeply this importaut question, the irrigation of the arid lands of
the province.
Not all the intricate phases of this
question are placed before us in this report, but enough are ' offered to show
how essential it is that the near future
should witness a measure of legislation
dealing with this matter. It would be
well, however, to make haste slowly,
for no question ever presented to the
people of the province contains greater
potentialities. By the way, there is one
recommendation in the said report which
should be acted upon at once; that is
that the designation in cubic feet per
second to the flow of water contained in
or represented by, the number of miners' inches.
In regard to this it is pointed out that
the provincial mineralogist in the annual report of the minister of mines for
1905, (p. 48) stated: "In British Columbia a miner's inch of water is by
statute not a quantity of water but a
flow of water equal to 1.68 cubic feet
per hour."
There is, though, it is stated in another act, a definition which differs from
this. Both the provincial mineralogist
and C. E. Mohun, C. E., have before
now urged the provincial government to
do away entirely with "miner's inch"
in connection with legislative enactments. It is possible this question will
be dealt with when the provincial legislature shall again be in session.
ITEMS OF INTEREST
P. R.  LATINO  UP  IMMENSE  RESERVE OF  COAL.
Tennis Club Formed at Diamond Vale
Johnson Will   Fight Burns For
the Heavyweight   Championship.
In order to be prepared for any
emergency that might cause a
shortage in the coal supply through
labor troubles or other causes, the
Canadian Pacific Railway has decided to lay iu an immense reserve
in new bunkers now being erected
on False creeK near the roundhouse
at Vancouver. The reserve is to
consist of twenty thousand tons
this summer and by next fall this
amount may be still further increased by another' five thousand
tons, making a total reserve supply
of 25,000 tons.
At present there are already between ten and fifteen thousand tons
in the new reserve bunkers and
this is being augmented by heavy
shipments from the mines at Lady-
smith and Nanaimo. The bunkers
are ingeniously arranged so that as
fast as they are filled the tracks are
laid right along over the coal already in place, so that the cars
bringing further loads can dump
still higher on the huge pile.
This coal is to be kept strictly as
a reserve and is entirely independent of the regular working supply.

WHO  PAYS?
Who pays the cost of advertising?
At first sight the question
looks easy. One is apt to say
off-hand that the advertiser
pays it.
But upon cloier investigation it becomes apparent that
an advertiser, who advertises
properly, gets back all the
money he spends in advertising, and a good deal more���
else what would be the use of
his advertising?
The purchaser doesn't pay it,
because he gets the goods as
cheaply from an advertising
firm as he could from a non-
advertising firm. In many
cases he buys cheaper. Then
who pays the cost of advertising?
The non-advertiser does!
By the lack of enterprise in
bringing his goods before the
attention of the public he loses
customers, who buy from advertising people.
The profits which are lost by
non-advertisers find their way
into the coffers of those who do
advertise.
As an example: If $20
spent in advertising brings you
in $30 additional profit, your
advertising is paid for and you
are $10 in pocket.

Nicola Valley, as a tourist
resort, is becoming better
known, and in a short time,
when accommodation is made
for this trade, hundreds will
take the advantage of visiting
this beautiful valiey,
With the great amount ot
work going on throughout the
northern portion of the province, better times are in sight.
Business in all lines will increase, with the result that fuel
in large quantities will be necessary. Nicola Valley is in a
position to supply this fuel, and
no doubt in a short time there
will be considerable activity
about the mines producing the
coal. Nicola Valley will then
forge ahead, and if railway construction goes on, which can
not much longer be held back,
from one end of the district to
the other will be a hive of industry, For this work the district can supply almost anything
that is necessary. The good
times are here.
