A comprehensive program tor the

is now in course of preparation by
the chief commissioner of lauds und

a very sjiori time the appointment of

Last summer twenty-three warden-
wvre in active service all OV( r the

that number will be employed ou the

the tire protection service throughout
the province will be doubled. All the
deputy wardens will be employed full
time by the province, and on the
occasion Of dangerous bush fires
Bcores of extra men will be taken on
the force temporarily to light the outbreaks. As one time last Summer during the height Of the dry season there
were some two hundred men on the.

THE   ELECTIONS  ACT.
The vigorous light being put up iby
the Opposition at Ottawa, aud the
.strung miasri'-ir-.-si-utation of a section
of the Conservative press, is proof
sufficient that th. labor of the Conservative heelers, In trying to build up
a voters' lis I particularly favorable to
themselves in tliis Province at least
is about to be lost, and that the electorate will have a chance of a full expression of its opinion on the policy
of the Laurier administration since
the general election makes their hope
of victory at the polls die within them.
It was all right for the Provincial
lists to be- prepared by persons with
strong partisan leaning, when it was
assured beyond doubt that they gave
full and complete allegiance to the
Cunserwitive party, but when it becomes probable that others will have
a iiaud in the preparation of the
final lists for the Dominion election,
there is a great outcry about party
heelers and even now, when it is
proposed lu June tlie liua! revision ue-
fore members of the judiciary, there.
is only A waiting for this to pass tue^
House to let the hue and cry rencf
the heavens that these judges have
been appointed under a Liberal administration.
ft is claimed that the Liberals have
objected here to names being struck
off because these persons were dead
or removed. This is not true and is
only stated to befog the issue. The
Libenals, alike with some fairminded
Conservatives, wish to have the lists
purged from dead nieu and object
only to the removing of names of persons who are temporarily absent from
the district, in which tbey are registered. In this Province, which is so
Quickly expanding and developing and
where the calls lor skilled and unskilled labor come from practically
unorganized districts, th-e male population must needs migrate to meet
this demand, aud it is In view of this
that the Legislature provided all
necessary precautions In the putting
of tho name on the list In the first
Instance, but once there, unless death
is proven, these sous of toil have no
right to be struck off the list until
they, personally make application to
have their names erased,*in view
their Intended application to be placed
on the list in another riding.
It i.s to give these persons who have
been so arbitrarily struck off without
.personal servile in time for them to
make application In another district,
an opportunity to be placed on the list
and exercise, their franchise, that Mr.
__ylesworth'8 bill is before the Hou&e,
and if .fur their relief alone, we hope
it will pass. The manner or the personnel of the court does not so much
matter as long as everyone lias the
chance to give a free expression at
���the polls.
There is another view not yet covered, that is the large Influx continually entering British Columbia from
other parts of Canada and it is reasonable to suppose that those we welcome here will not care to be denied
the privilege of exercising their franchise for a possible four years. So
we say it i.s righteous legislature that
is now before the House so that the
greatest possible vox- may be polled,
whether it be for or against the pres-
'*#..* government, but to view of the
progress of the Dominion under the
, present regime we 'do not doubt the
*ssiic and have no worrying moments
as to the  result.

THE AIR BRAKE.
It   Was   Ushered   Into   Actual   Use   Itr
Most  Dramatic  Fashion.
Tho nir brake was ushered into actu
*i use iu most dramatic.' fashion. Tbe
.rial trip occurred iu April, 1800. Tbe
train selected was the Steubenville accommodation, running between Pitta-
burg and Steubenville, O.
W'hi'u the- train was going at full
speed, suddenly as he came around a
Bharp curve the engineer saw a stalled
wagon in the middle of tlie track dead
ahead. Witb only hand brakes nothing   could   have   prevented   a   terrible
Bmashup.    The   formal   ti    (or  the
trial of the air brake had not come,
but tbe brake was there, and In desperation, not believing for a moment
that the thins could possibly avail, tbe
engineer threw on the air. But it did
avail,
The observers in the rear were almost catapulted out of their seats by
the slunk of the sudden stop. But
when they saw .the engine fairly poking Its nose Into the wagon bed, so narrow had been the margin between
safely and disaster, they forgot all
about their shock and stood in awed
sllcinv. The air brake had come into
Its own.���Everybody's Magazine,
Keyhole! Tenure In London.
The curious custom pf keyhold tenure still prevails at Crowland, the famous abbey town 'n ihe Lincolnshire
fens, where there are a number of cottages which are neither copyhold, free-
bold nor leasehold. Tbey were originally built on waste laud, and ln each
case the possessor of the key holds an
indlsputed tenancy. Although some of
the occupiers have replaced the mud
and thatcbed dwellings of antiquity
with brick aud slated buildings, they
have no power to sell or will them
away, for they have no deeds. On a
tenant dying the first person to cross
the threshold takes his place if he so
desires. Many devices have been resorted to to obtain tbe keys. The properties carry a county vote, but the poor
law guardians always refuse to grant
relief to the tenants.���London Olobe.
A Vegetable Fro-.k.
California bas one tree which is the
personification of mystery. Found nowhere else in the world, it had a mysterious origin and thrives iu a region
of mystery. The Mojava yucca is a
vegetable freak which has developed
Into a species. It has the characteristics of several plants, to which no relationship can be traced. It is an en-
dogen, yet Its bark shows concentric
rings such as characterize tbe exogenous stems. It lives and thrives In
great numbers ln a region nearly devoid of vegetation.���P. E. Magazine.
Elephants.
People who really know nothing
about It used to say that elephants
never He down to sleep. This Is not
true at all, says one writer. They have
been known to stand for twelve
months without lying down to sleep.
This Is regarded as want of confidence
in their keepers and of longiug to regain their liberty, for when they are
perfectly at ease and reconciled to
their fate they wjll lie down on their
sides and sleep peacefully.

placing the lirst and second issues of
100,000 shares each of the Preferred
Stock of that Corporation, in some respects, stands without a parallel iu
the sale of Industrial Stock on the
I Pacific Coast. The company disposed
of the first 100,000 shares in about
thirty days and have now given notice
that subscription on the second 100,-
000 Issue closes on May 30th. In fact
thtf first allotment of stock on the
second issue is to be made May 19th
at. H p.m. and the final allotment May
:10th. All subscriptions should therefore be in the hands of the company
not later than <> o'clock May 19ih to
ensure full allotment. All applications
received from May 19th to .Vlay 30th
will be allowed pro rata on the second and third hundred thousand Issues. Tho first 100,000 shares which
the company disposed of in about
thirty days, carried a bonus of twenty-
live shares of Preferred Stock to each
hundred, the second Issue which they
ity! now closing is only entitled to a
bom.;, of fifteen   .hares to wch hun-
honu;. at all. This stock is entitled
to an annual dividend of 7 per cent,
commencing .November 1st, 1908, but
unlimited as to further dividends.
That is: After 7 per cent has heen
paid upon the preferred and common,
both stocks thereafter participate
equally. There Is no good reason why
the stock should not pay from 25 per
cent to 40 per cent, dividenda. The
company are making splendid progress
in the erection of the first unit of
their great Wood Pulp and Paper
Plant at "Port Mellon," twenty-five
miles from Vancouver, and it will not
be long before they are turning out
. 80,000 pounds of wrapping paper per
week. The demonstrating plant of
the company Is still jn operation at
313 Cordova street, foot of Cambie
street, and in order to accommodate
the large number of people who are
anxious to witness the manufacture of
Wood Pulp and Paper, the office of
the company will remain open on
Wednesday and Saturday evenings
during the next two weeks until 9
o'cloc!;.
