Two Hundred and Fifty Men Putting
Finishing Touchet���Quarter Million Feet Daily Cut.
Mr. Shepherd Think* that Oil Burner*
in Fruhling Would Be III Advised
���Letter.
NEW IMPERIAL
APPEAL COURT
Against the background of a colossal unpainted steel roofed structure
reared upon the bank of the river, a
white jet of cloudy steam shot skyward and the long drawn note of the
siren a moment later proclaimed that
lt was time for two hundred and fifty
men to take up the burden of their
daily toil.
This   seemingly   commonplace   Incident     which    occurred     yesterday
morning at the plant of the  British
Canadian Lumber company, now under construction ou Lulu Island was
remarkable on account   of   the   fact
that it was the flrst time the whistle
had ever awakened the echoe3 cf the
island.    It heralded also, to all   and
sundry,  that the completion  of   the
mill  was approaching, and that very
soon the capacious engine room would
hum    and   pant    and   sweat      with
mechanical life, that the wheel 3 and
saws  would soon  be turning  in  the
saw mill and that   the   fallen  levan-
thians of the forest would come dripping up the chute from Father Eraser
to be sawed and hacked and trimmed
and shaped into the sizes of finished
lumber that man had devised means
to manufacture.
Site and Cost.
It is nearly a year ago since the
British Canadian Lumber company cf
Vancouver, a ccrroration composed of
Canadian and old country interests,
as the name would imply, first com-
menoed construction work upon the
mill. Korty acres of ground was purchased and plans were envolved for
the erection of a mill capable cf competing with such mammoth concern-.
as the Fraser Mills, and other Industries of a lll��> nature operating on the
river. The cost of the plant was
estimated tri bo considerably over n
million and a half dollar*, and the
equipment wan planned to be on a
par with nny on the Paoinc coast aa
far na modernity and excellence waa
cpnerned.
Today the plant stands completed
with the exception of about two week-,
work, and it is anticipated by the
mill Officials that thc 31st day of the
present month will see the plant in
active operation and turnlm: out Its
quota of 250,1.00 feet of sawed lumber
per 'lay.
Mr. J. H. McDonald, manager of the
plant, accompanied a . representative
of this paper on a trip through the
mill yesterdav morning for the purpose of explaining all the aallanl
points and feature* Included in<V
construction.
In Engine Room.
The engine room which Is built of
steel and concrete with no Inflammable material of any description In
the make up. Is fitted with eight 72
inch by IS fct boilera tested to a
pressure of 1G5 pounds to the square
Inch. These boilers were supplied bv
the Vancouver Engineering Works
and are encased in "Dutch" settings.
The furnaces are fed automatically,
eight separate chutes carrying fuel
directly Into tho flre box where It Is
distributed by an electrically operated
flipper In such a manner that the flres
remain at a uniform heat.
From thn furnaces a natura'
draught smoke stack rises to a height
of 125 feet, screened at the top with
heavy wire to obviate any danger
from flying suarks and embers.
Li'-htlnq and Power.
Operated by the big steam plant In
the engine room proper, there Is a
turbine elect rie generator of 1500 kilowatts capacity. This machine transmits power to the various dynamos
operating the saws, planers, carriers
and edgera and Is the largest of Its
kind installed in any mill In Canada.
The power antl-frlotlon system ln
use In the plant Ib original In mill
construction on the coast, as Instead
of the usual lines of shafting and
thousands of yards of belting ln the
old stylo mills, electric dynamos are
attached directly to the various machines thereby practically eliminating
friction and loss of power.
Besides tho big generator a smaller
one. of about 150 kilowatts capacity

Nanaimo, Aug. 8.���A proposition
having been made that the Dominion
dredge Fruhling,' now working on the
Fraaer river, should be converted Into an oil burner, a request haa been
sent to the minister of public works
by Mr. Shepherd, member for Nanaimo dlatrict, that the question should
be further considered before final action Is taken.
Mr. Taylor, the member for New
Weatmlnster, ls also endeavoring to
influence the minister against the
change. Mr. Shepherd's letter to
Hon. F. D. Monk ls as follows:
Dear Mr. Monk,���I understand thai
your department proposes to convert the dredge Fruhling into an oil
burner.
1 fully believe that for fishery cruisers, where smoke would defeat the
very object of the patrol, that the installation of oil burners would be a
decided advantage, but for a dredger,
which is stoked and operated In a
province where the production of coal
i.s the main industry, I think the proposed change is ill advised.
I trust, therefore, that you will,
hefore arranging for this change, give
this matter your earnest and careful
consideration. In any event I would
suggest that the matter be deferred
until we may have an opportunity to
discuss the proposed change in all its
hearings.
Believe me, vottrs verv truly.

Dominion Representatives.
Lord Loreburn advocated two appellate courts, one to handle appeals
from the United Kingdom and the
other, those from the domiuions. Upon the latter there would be dominion
representatives along with two British
judges.
At the time no conclusion was
reached, but action is likely before
another conference assembles in view
of the great increase of colonial cases
and the rather widely expressed opinions in favor of reform.

Among the places visited by Mr.
MacKenzie were Enderby, Armstrong,
Vernon, Kelowna, Peachland, Summer-

held at all of these places, two meetings taking place In Enderby. Mr.
MacKenzie and Mr. Keary spoke at
all of these places, and were asaured

British     Admiralty's     Announcement
Presents Wide Opportunity to
Lower Deck.
London. Aug. S.���Important and tar- ���
reaching changes bave been announced by the British admiralty regarding
the scheme of promotion fn the British navy. In the future the ranks of
the navy will be given an opportunity
to show their worth and take their
places upon the upper decks.
The announcement Is to the effect
that the admiralty will open commissions to the men ot the lower decft.
At the present time there aro over
100 vacancies for officers under SS
years of age. The revolution in Uie
promotion system provides that ability shown by the ordinary bluejacket
of the lower deck will enable a rise
even as high as the poat of commander.
The fact that there are 1W�� rtral-
tions at the present time, clearly
shows that tbe admiralty ls finding U
hard to suitably All the spare ptoons
on the officer's list, while at Uie
same time demonstrates that tbe authorities are beginning to realize that
there are capable' officers among ttie.
seamen ln the navy.
Still further the scheme proposed
provides for the automatic promotion
of all warrant officers after flfteen
years service. These promotions will
mean the granting of commissions tt��
the former warrant officers.

Several gamblers were before the j flciauy reported
prosecutor and unwillingly c-Jmitted
they had paid blackmail to certain Inspectors. One told Mr. Whitman he
had been threatened with death if he
went before the grand jury and gave
information about the police. These
witnesses said the inspectors in question dealt directly with the big gambling houses, leaving Lieut. Becker to
attend to the smaller places.
The district attorney said evidence
would be presented to the grand jury
against several police inspectors. One
of these i3 said to have kept such
close watch on the gambling houses
that he even examined their boo!:s
and made them pay blackmail according to their profits.
"Bridge" Webber now admit3 he
also collected toll from certain uptown gambling houses for a police inspector. Webber's life had been
threatened and District Attorney
Whitman has provided him with a

of Herman Rosenthal.

say that he could positively identif;-

The interruption of diplomatic relations between the two countries is
not said to appease the hotheads on
either side, already aroused by the
blood that haa been shed.
Mr. Krupensky, the Russian ambassador to Italy, who is at Fiascati, had
today a long communication by telephone with Signor Bollali, the general secretary of the department, both
the minister and tho under-seoretary
being absent from Rome.
Of all the powers, Russia and Italy
are the two which have most Influence at Cettinge, and they are acting
in perfect agi eement with the object
of preventing war, while liritain and
Austria are exercising pressure at
Constantinople for the same, purpose.
Mr. Popovitch, the Montenegrin
consul at Rome, in an interview published In the Tribuna today, says he
has little confidence In the capability
of diplomatists to stave elf a conflic'
between Montenegro and Turkey.
"Montenegro." said he, "has ready

Walts on   Premier  Regarding   Future
of Egerla.
Victoria. Aug. 8.���Arising out of the
comparative failure of the Vancouver
project for the utilization of the Eg-
eria as a training ship for boys, a de-
nutation representing the British Columbia Navy League waited upon Sir
Richard McBride yesterday, with two
alternative Proposals in regard to the
future of the former warship.
The desire of the league, as expressed hy the members of the deput
atlon. is that either the government
take over the vessel and conduct it in
connection with a technical education
system, or pay to present trustees of
the scheme the amount of the government school grant, which would be
nav-able to some school hoard In behalf of the boys on the Egerla. The
views of the league were put before
the premier by Mr. S. C. P. Wolley.
president of the now federated
leagues and of the Victoria and Esquimalt branch; Mr. William Blakemore.
secretary or the federation; the Bishop of Columbia. Mr. T. E. Julian, rep
resenting the Vancouver branch, and
Mr. George A. Kirk.
In reply  to the premier, Mr. Julian
estimated the expense of training om
hundred or one hundred and fifty boys
at about $800 a month, or, say, $12,00
a yi ar,
8'r Richard, who received the dOPU
tation very  sympathetically and  ds
cussed several features of the matter
with them, promised to give an ( arly
answer after he had an opportunity t'
consult with his colleagues. He reminded the deputation, however, that
the purchase of the vessel from the
Admiral tv and that at that time il
was understood and agreed to bv
those connected with the matter tha'
no demand should be made for anything towards the upkeep of the ship.

Chicago, Aug. 8.���The Roosevelt
party platform, adopted hy the Progressive convention hefore adjournment, Bpeak3 of "the conscience of
the people, which in a time of grave
national problems, has called into being this new party, born of the nation's awakening to a sense of justice."  The preamble says:
"We, of the Progressive party, dedicate ourselves to the fulfilment of the
duty laid upon ub by our fathers to
maintain that government of the people by the people and for the people,
whose foundation they laid."
Referring to Thomas Jefferson and
Abraham Lincoln as the past representatives of the people who declared
the people to be the masters of the
constitution and held it their duty to
safeguard it from those who, by perversion of Its Intent, would convert
the constitution Into an Instrument of
Injustice. The preamble closes by
saying:
"This country belongs to the people who inhabit it. It is time to set
the public welfare In the first  place."
The platform contains the following planks:
It declares that the old parties have
become the tools of corrupt interests,
which use them impartially to serve
their selfish purposes, and that the

Burton Amendment to Ctrike Out the
Clause Favoring American Chips
Defeated.
Washington, Aug. 9.���By a vote of
44 to 11 the senale late yesterday refused to strike from the Panama canal bill the provision exempting American ships from payment of tolls for
passage through the Panama canal.
Debate on the question had continued
from 1 p. m. until nearly midnight.
The senate then adjourned until tomorrow, without voting on the bill itself.
The defeat of the Burton amendment to strike out the discrimination
in favor of American ships was the
senate's defiant answer to the protest of the' British Government
against tbe legislation. It was this
clause of the bill which led Great
Britain to send a formal protest to the
state department.
The senators who voted In favor
of the Burton amendment are Bran-
dege, Burton, Crane, Fall, Gronna,
Lodge. Nelson, Oliver, Penrose, Root
and Wetmore.
Just before the vote was taken
Senator Cummins made an Impassioned speech ln which he charged
senators who interpreted the Hay-
Pauncefote treaty as denying to the
United States the power of discriminate In favor of Its own ships with
giving an Interpretation which they
knew the American people would not
observe.
He said the question of power was
one that could not be arbitrated and
should  diplomacy fail   in  Its   settle-
away the abuses and to build  a new j menVwar would beTthe final arbiter,
and a nobler commonwealth.

Rule of the People," for direct primaries for the nomination of state and
national offices and for the popular
election of U. S. senators, and urges
on the states the use of the short bal-
Senator Williams and Burton said
Senator Cummins was ruthlessly disregarding the arbitration treaty between the United States and Great
Britain.

WORTH THE WHILE
One of the most striking of the happenings of this present year ha3 been
the visit ot one or other of the gentlemen In whose hand3 is entrusted   the
ordering of affairs  which  intimately
..affect those whose lives and work are
���set in many cases, thousands of mil@3
:away from the place whence these orders emanate.
Personal inspection is well worth
the trouble, time and labor it involves,
.amd this sentiment was given voice
to by Hon. Mr. Cochrane, minister or
railways and canals, on his recent
visit here. It is very different, as he
remarked, to sitting in one's office at
Ottawa, and receiving deputation after deputation, and trying to size up
the situation with the aid of maps
.and other data.
Officials of the fisheries department,
the head of the Canadian militia, engineers, all liave fcten here of late
iinA lo addition to them, the coast
lias been inspected by repieser.tatives
of tho great mercantile houses of
Uritain, while more financiers are
ccming.
The recognition of tho value of a
personal inspection of British Columbia extends to every class of public
life and endeavor, and nothing but
good can come to the province from
the development of the stream of
those who have business here, but live .
-elsewhere.

tho trlplane, and tbls was made to
l\v at the Crystat Palace in 186S. For
bia achievement be was awarded a
prize of ��100, which was supplemented by ��50 from the Society of Engineers.
The   feature   of  Mr. Stringfellow's
triola-ie was the light   steam engine
and thc boiler that used alcohol   for
fuel.    It weighed only a few   pounds,
and developed  one   horsepower  with
100 pounds of steam ln seven minutes.
The man who made  a  machine  that
could sail through the air by mechanical    power in 1348, and exhibited    a
jnore complete  machine   in   1S68, received the congratulations of his late
Majesty King Edward, then Prince of
Wales, and   was    honored   in   many
ways.' As his' chief triumph was in reducing the weight of his engine there
was little or no advancement until the
.gasoline  engine   made  a  mechanical
revolution In that regard.   Mr. String-
fellow's comparatively modest  though
important achievement has been superseded hy record-breaking flights   in
height, speed, distance  and  duration,
toy   passenger-carrying    and   various
otber achievements.   But British love
-of fair   play Is    according   him   the
honors of a pioneer, and   there ls a
movement on foot   to  mark  fittingly
hls last resting place in Chard with a
monument attesting his success as the
.builder of the lirst aeroplane.
This tribute is freely paid by the
British Press at a time when public
opinion is revolting against tlie lamentable record of fatal accidents in
aerial navigation. It is questionable if
tThv prrat dangi-r of such work can
ever be averted. The air is disturbed by many unseen currents, which
���vxpiUtin sudden collapses that have occurred under seemingly favorable circumstances. While a collapse means
��k*at.h the record of laialities will be
high. Someone may invent a safety

���parai?hlite. It"would be bold to limit
the possibilities of invention in any
Held. A cause of public disapproval
may be removed by an international
agreement classing" the aeroplane in
war with the explosive bullet and the
poisoned weapon. Let inventors
honor the pioneer by turning the'r attention from record-breaking and engines of destruction to safety devices.
The public will not give material support to aerial navigation while it entails the frequent sacrifice of human
life.  -Toronto Globe.

19 BUNGALOWS and 44 other
Valuable Real Estate Prizes to
be GIVEN AWAY Absolutely
Free to Purchasers of LOTS in
I have a way of doing business that my friends tell me doesn't
make enough money. I believe differently. I depend upon a
whole lot of sales at a small profit, rather than a few with large
profits. In other words, I give you more for your money . than
anyone else will.   Read the rest of this and see how I do business.
The first piece of property I have to sell is Cumberland Park,
out on Burnaby Lake. It's not very large, only one hundred and
twenty lots.
First I am clearing it, so you can live there right now, and
start a garden if you want to.
Then I contracted for a store building, with living rooms upstairs, to cost $1500 to build, and also for nineteen bungalows
that are costing me from $4C0 up to $750 to build. Two of the
house stand cn $900 lots, the others are on $500 lots.
That leaves one hundred vacant lots, and as ihe Burnaby
Lake tram line runs right through the property, from one corner
down to the other, I had to make the lots different sizes. Some
of them Ere 33 foot frontage, others are as much as 140 foot
front. These lets are worth from $500 to $1150 each. I am selling all these lots, those with the houses included, for $500 each.
Here is the way it works out. There are 44 lots worth from $550
to $1150 each. There are twenty buildings, together with the lots
they are built on, worth from $900 to $2000. I will sell you a lot
for $500. When the 120 pieces are sold, this, of course, includes
those with the buildings, you will meet in my office and decide
with the others, just how you want the prizes distributed. That's
the way I do business. I won't have any blanks where there is a
chance for you to lose a cent. I haven't put a lot in that is worth
, less than the full amount you pay for it, $500. I am going to give
yOU easy terms On this tOO,  $50.00 down and $15.00 a month.
Now wouldn't you like to have a home on Burnaby Lake. It's
tbe only fresh water lake in Greater Vancouver. I tell you it's
going to be fine out there. The engineers are working on plans
now to put a Boulevard around it, and beautify it in many ways.
You can really live there. You can have a garden and raise your
own fresh vegetables. You can have a boat on the lake. Ther's
some fishing too.
Now I have told you about this as plainly as I know how. You
can see for yourself that you have better than one chance it two
of getting more than your money's worth, and you might get the
$1900 piece; someone will. Come in and see about this right away.
They won't last very long. I can't say any more, it's up to you
now.    I have given you the chance.

GREEN SHIRTS ARE
MAKING CHANGES
gram were Mrs. Wheeler, Mrs. Terry,
Sergt.-Major Robinson, Messrs. Bert
Terry, Chris. Cunnlngton, Dick Lawrence, Cotze, Harris, Savage, O'Connor, Barclay and others. The curtain
rang down on the entertainment with
the singing ,of God Save the King.
Intense    Interest   Throughout   Whole
Lower Mainland  Points to
Record Game.
Disappointed with the showing the
Vancouver home made against the
. Salmon Bellies on Saturday last, it
ls understood that several changes
are in order before the two teams
lire up again on Saturday afternoon.
The selection committee of the green
shirts, consisting of Lalonde, Godfrey
and Griffith, are keeping things under
their headgear these days, but a
shake-up In thdir ranks is expected.
Meanwhile the Salmon Bellies are
confidently awaiting the foe. Owing
to the heavy rainstorm last night tlie
players were not called upon to hold
a practice, but, according to the
trainer, the Royals were never in
better shape than they are now.
The showing made by the Fraser
boys last week has awakened interest
not only ln New Westminster and
Vancouver, but throughout the whole
of the lower mainland, and everything
points to a good crowd turning out tomorrow afternoon to witness the
struggle. Enquiries and reservations
are coming in from different points on
Vancouver island so tense is the situation at the present slage.
TONIGHT'S  LACROCSE
Reorganized Team Is Expected to
Down Fairviews.
The feature event of tonight will
be the lacrosse game between the
Senior Amateurs and the Fairviews of
Vancouver. Both teams appear to be
In fine trim for the battle, and with
a reorganized line-up the Royals are
picked lo win the contest.
The defence in last Saturday's game
���iK.rnst the Victoria twelve could not
be bettered, but several chances were
let slip by the home, and the management has decided to change the positions cf the players in the hope of
effecting a strong combination.
The game will start at 6:15 o'clock
sharp so that'the fans can rest assured of the contest being called while
the light holds good.
REVELCTOKE   EAGER
Looking for Fast Lacrosse from Sapperton Boys.
Revelstoke, Aug. 8.���The Sapperton
junior lacrosse team, who are sometimes called the champions of the
world, ls scheduled to play toe Revelstoke boys on the 15th inst. This
promises to be the fastest lacrosse
ni&tch of the season, and should attract a large crowd of fins from all
over the  country.
Th<9 last Utno these teams met. In

Something Missing In Big Four.
1 acrosse fans In Toronto generally
bel'eve that the Big Four and N. L. U.
���will come together next summer. Hot
supporters of the Tecumseh and Torontos admit that, despite the whoop
and hurrah, the Big Four ls a financial failure. There ls something lacking and that something, it ls generally
whispered. Is the old reliable Shamrocks, Cornwall and Capital clubs.
The lacrosse fans mlss them. Wben
the Shamrocks visited Toronto every
Irishman ln the city felt It a duty to
go out and aee them play. They appear to have no sucb feeling Tor the
Irish-Canadians, and lt ls an accepted
fact thnt the Capitals, Cornwall and
Shamrocks drew larger crowds ln the
Queen City than two of the Big Four
clubs are drawing right now. There
may be" much said against IL but the
reconciliation Is bound to come.���Ottawa Journal.
B'JRNS KNOCK8 RICKARD
OUT IN SIXTH  ROUND
Saskatoon, Sask., Aug. 9���Tommy
BurnsTThe one tlmo heavyweight
champion, showed some of his old
time form last night In a scheduled
fifteen round bout with Bill Rickard.
Burns apparently played with his man
until the sixth round, when he went
In to finish him off. In this round the
big fellow was floored for the count
of nine and was put away again to the
count of eight, and was still out when
Sheriff Calder stepped Into the ring
and stopped the bout, which was
awarded to Burns.

Whether It was the tinkle of the
banjo, tho stralnB of the violin, or
the rendition of a rousing song, the
program at the smoking concert given
Inst night ln the drill hall by the 104th

In addition to thu musical Items,
which were ably accompanied by Mrs.

took place. These Included pestling, i

put an end tq Carl Morris' career last
spring, is finding it rather hard to secure matches In New York. He has
been training for several weeks at a
quiet New Jersey resort, having
agreed to box Al Palzer in New York,
hut all this work has been in vain, for
the reason that Palzer, badly advised,
is trying to avoid a meeting. McCar-
ty's manager, William McCarney, who
has vainly tried to corner Palzer and
his advisers, declared yesterday that
McCarty has as much right to a
match with Jack Johnson as Palzer.
Accordingly'he wired Johnson  asking
him to box ten rounds with McCarty
and promising the negro champion a
guarantee of ��20,0uu. |
''It is as plain as day, that Palzer is
afraid of McCarty," said McCarney.
"He told me himself that he did not
want to take any chances with McCarty. He knows that McCarty can
hit harder than Bombardier WellB, 1
and he doesn't want to be knocked
out in a round. Palzer would have
about as much show with Jack Johnson as a small boy with a cannibal. It
is absurd to talk of such a fight, but
while we are at It McCarty intends to
cut Palzer out If the negro is willing
to talk business."

TWO   GREAT   SWIMMERS
MAY   MEET   IN   FRISCO
It is more than probable that two of
the greatest swimmers of the world
will be seen in action in San Francisco about October, when "Duke" Ka
iianamoku. the speed wizard f.-on-.
Honolulu, and Cecil Healy, the Australian champion, arrive there on
their way to their respective homes
Word has been received from Heal
to the   effect that he will visit   thi
country on his Way home to Australia
and that San Francisco will probabU
bn cn  his itinerary.      The  liawaiiar
marvel also will be there at the same
time, and a race between these   twe
world-famoua water dogs���both prlzt
wlnnerB  at   the  Olympiad   at   Stock
holm���Bhould  be  an attraction    tha-
would crowd the galleries.
Kahanamoku la the marvel of thc
present century ln the swlminlnt
world. Down in the islands he wa;
recognized as a wonder a year ago
and he established American record:
for both tbe 100 and 220-yard events
The tim^s announced, coming as they
did from a then unknown performer
were not taken seriously by the
swimming public cf the world. However, wben the Islander went Kasi
and competed ln the A. A. IT. championships he jumped from obscurity
to world fame in a. night. He showed
all the marks of the speed burner
that he bad been said to be by the <>f
flcials from tbe islands, and besides
that he swam the 100 in a world's record time.
Going to Stockholm he again ere
ated a sensation by establishing a
world's record for the 100 meters in 5
minute 2 4-5 seconds. Not satisfied
with that, ln Berlin he heat the German cracks and again reduced Mb
world's record to 1 minute 1 4-5 sec
onds for the 100 meters.
Wh*>n ln the East Kahanamoku was
entertained In royal style by the New
York Athletic Club, tho Irish-American Athletic Club and various big
clubs In Philadelphia, Pittsburg and
Boston, and In all these places he
made records for the respective tanks
In which he swam.
The Olympic Club of San Frandsc-
has the finest and longest tank in
this country. It ls the ideal tank for
the establishment of records, and i'
the winged O club can arrange :
meeting between Kahanamoku anc
Healy there ls every probability- thp
the flrst world's record for the Olvm
pic Club tank will be made by either
one of these men.
Healy has been In the limelight V'
three or four years past and ls a wonderful swimmer. At the present timi
he holds the following world's re
cords: One hundred yards with one
turn. 110 yardB straightaway, 150
yards with two turns and 200 yards
with three turns.

John rj. Barbor Used to Of 12 Cents
I a Pound For News Print.
The recent sale of the plants it ths
Canada Coating MWls and the Georgetown Paper Mill-r. at Georgetown, Ontario, in which John R. Barl.er, ex-
M.P.P. was the largest shareholder,
to the Barber Paper ft Coating Mills
Co.,  which  was   lately  organized,  ie-
calls several incidents in tba career
of Canada's veteran paper manufacturer. Mr. Burlier, ���ho next month
will celebrate his seventy-first birthday, has had a long and active record,
being continuously identified with the
trade for over half a century. William
Barber, who was his ui|cle, established the Georgetown mill in IS5!i and at
that time there were only Hire- news
: plants in the Dominion, the Don mill
1 near Toronto operated by the ^aylor?,
Iieing one of them. James Barber, a
brother of the founder ol the mill, and
father of J< lm R., was the lirst man
' in Canada to learn the paper making
i trade. This was Bway l��ck in l*3f).
i Paper was made by hand in thos*
'days, nnd with bis sieve, va' and
blanket. Jame-�� Ba'ber was an expert
in its production. In \*Si. an al-ctri-
cal plant on the Credit river was installed for driving part of the machinery of the mill and was the first
hydro-electric concern started in Canada for the transmission of power for
transportation and industrial purposes. In the early sixties news print
and book psrv>r was made at Ceorge-
town from wheat, oat and rve straw,
instead of the ground wood and sulphite pulp that we have to-day. Corn
stalks were also used for a time hut
the supply locally being limited, they
had to be aband med. Later i n news
print was mnde of rags and was better in grade and texture than much of
the book papier of the present time.
What would Canadian newspaper
(publishers think to-day if, in.-tead of
paying about two and a quarter cents
���for their sunply. they bad to buy it
at eleven and twelve cents per pound.
Vet many years ago dailies were furnished with news print from the Barber plant at this figure. The Grand
Trunk Railway was just heing completed between Toronto and Georgetown In the middle fifties wben the
Barber mill began business, and the
first shipment to Toronto was three
carloads of wrapping paper, drawn
by ii wood burning locomotive. Mr.
Barber and several ni3ii from the mill
rode on the flat cars, having several
buckets of water close at hand to prevent the paper from taking tire owing
to the myriads of flying sparks.���Saturday Night.

tio'l. announced iii the form ol a eir
cular letter, a number of district representatives of the department located iu the counties have im-tilulcd
rural" school lairs to be held litis

scliool children with seeds of tbe best
approved varieties of cereals and
Vegetables, to be planteil by them individually in their home gardens, and

Canadians In Indies.
There is. perhaps, no pari of the
world, outside of ( anada. where Cnni-
dlans are extending thpir interest-
more rapidly than in the British Wist
Indies,
Some people seemed surprised that
the   West   Indies   and  .Canada    rtrere
holding   a   trude   conference.    Thev
iilt'.e   re��li7o   what   Canadian;   hav"

-teamsbins to salt tish. are Canadian
f j rest   estates    and    plantations     are
iwned   and   managed   by   Canadians.
\ hi li'  hundreds  of  students  fiom the
West Indies are trained in our (.'ana
lian   universities.
When     the    Canadian    arrives    at
lamaio.i   he  finds  a thoroughly   mod
5m  electric  car  service extending  to
all parts of the city of King-ton and
suburbs, six  and eight miles distant.
It is a Canadian company, with Cana
liau-bllilt  cars   and   Canadian   mana
:ers.   At the royal  rn.iil ollice he ran
���able   d reet   to   Halifax.    In   Harbor

Pacing  the same gardens  he see the
familiar    name    "Confederation    Life

i e may buy  Canadian-made gi uvenir
spoons.  Canadian   biscuits,  Canadian

Mr. J. Kerr, who has been nuder
treatment at the Royal Columbian
hospital for some time ln consequence
of Injuries received in electrical work
at Chilliwack about a month ago, is
reported to be recovering rapidly.
At the time of Mr. Kerr's accident
it was stated that his chance for recovery was slight. In spite of the
fact that one leg had to be amputated
and new flesh grafted on arms that
were horribly burned, Mr. Kerr's
splendid constitution was equal to
the strain and his present convalescence contradicts the prediction.
