Tribulation* Are Many.
The trials and tribulations of th��
Burnaby councillors have apparently
reached no end, judging from thf. large
delegation which crowded the couneil
chamber. Kveryone present expected
trouble, the air was thick with It,
there was a smell of Guy Fawksiuess
in the municipal sanctum which to
many just wanted tinder and fllut to
let off the explosion. But the explosion never came. There were words
passed, many of them, in fact, they
talked paving and work for two hours
straight, councillors, contractors and
unemployed employees, but when the
smoke had finally cleared away, the
men were told just how conditions
stood, they were told to stick around
and nwalt developments when strong
efforts would be made to find every
(toservlng case a8BlBtancc; and the
men appeared satisfied.
The whole trouble lay In the alleged hiring of Italians and other
southern Kuropean workmen an the
Kingsway Job, the contract for which
is held by the Canadian Mineral Rubber company. In a clauBe in the contract with the municipality the company is required to furnish to the best
of their ability, work for ratepayers
and settlers In preference to outsiders, especially Italians. That was
where the shoe pinched. The men
claimed tbey had been refused work,
while Italians were kept on the Job:
that the wol* offered to some was of
tiicli a character tint no white man
wonld slick to the job.
A. Mr. Hooker, of Central Park,
was the first spokesman who answered Acting Keeve FauVel'B request for
delegations. Mr. Hooker, on behalf
of tbe assemblage, protested against
southern European labor on thc
Kingsway  paving  work.

Tom Cope was the third speaker,
slating that when he upplled for work
he had heen sent from one gang to
the other wllh the same reply "nothing doing today."
Acting Mayor FauVel, speaking to
the unemployed employees, stated
that he and other members of the

The obvious inference is that if there is no limit
locally to so-called industrial sites, there will be a limit to
farming possibilities and the present day tendency in favor of city existence as against rural life will leave its undesirable stamp on neglected agricultural areas in this
pre-eminently agricultural Fuaser valley.

B. C. Has the Talk of Protecting Half
thc Standing Timber In the
Entiro Dominion.
From lhe forestry branch of the
lands department at Victoria comon
the following statistics of standing
timber in the province am! a timely
appeal for lis protection and preservation:
B. C'S Mlflhty Forests.
British Columbia possesses one of
Ihe few (treat timber areas of the
world. While tho countries of Ihe far
east have lost nil the timber they over
had. while Kuropean nations are resorting to the most intensive meth-
, ils possible to secure continuity ol
Stand an a certainty of yield and
are planting trees by hand over great
ureas to ensure crops in the future;
while eastern Canada and the New
England states are clamoring for lumber and viewing with alarm the rap-
Idly diminishing supplies in their
country, British Columbia has a
vast area of over 65 million acres ot
tlmberland, which Bhould produce, ac-
cirding to estimates of experts, at
least one hundred board feet per acre
per annum, er tx total of six and one
half billion feet. This would return
to the government over six and one-
half million dollars every year. The
province Is tlie possessor of a lierlt
Bge of over 800 billion feet of timber,
which Is quite half of all lhat stand
ing in the Dominion al the present
(Mile At the present rale of cutting,
the loggers of the province are taking annually only one-fifth of the
amount which is added by the natural
processes of growth.
Much Depends On It.
If one looks over the Industries In
the province, the shipping and all the
allied and dependent trades, ono Will
see that at least three out of every
five men In the country are looking to
the forest to supply their livelihood.
There are very few Industries which
are rot to a greater or less extent
under obligation for their existence
to the forest resource Outside altogether of tho loggers, mlllmen, transport men. builders, and all those who
sue wood in a secondary way. the
vast majority of the great farming
population are dependent upon the
forest-Clad hills fnr tbe water which
brings fertility and wealth to the
wonderful natural soils from which
spring the crops which have become
renowned the world over.
Must Be Maintained.
It Is plainly evident, therefore, that
to maintain the prosperity of llie
province It. Is necessary to maintain
the forest resources. This resource
Is subject to one of the greatest dangers In the world, the danger which
lu-ings havoc Into towns, cities and
settled communities, which mounts
Into the hundreds of millions every
vear And the forest has no protection such as havo thc buildings In the
great cities.
The gospel of an ounce of prevention being better than a pound of cure
applies so thoroughly to the forest
lhat every effort Is being made, and
should be made in the future, should
look to the early extinguishing of a
tire before it attains a size which ren-
ili rs it impossible to put out.
Causes  cf   Fire.
Tlie causes of lhe vast proportion of
forest fires today are in the carelessness of people who have fires and do
not properly extinguish them. According to the report of ihe chief forester
for past year, -over 70 per cent of the
blazes which originated In other ways
than from lightning were from sheer
carelessness on the part of campers.
brut h burners, land clearers. etc.
There were a great number of conflagrations traceable, It is true, t�� rail-
ways whose lines were not cleared of
brush, and sparks from passing engines set blazes in the debris by the
right f way with disastrous results
to llie surrounding timber.
'lhere are numerous methods devised by Ihe provincial forest branch authorities to prevent and extinguish
forest tires. There wero employed last
summer over 160 forest rangers whose
sole duty was to safeguard the standing timber and collect and organize
tire fighting parlies in case of an outbreak. The money expended on the
work of these men ran into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Hul greaier Ihan the work of the
rangers, and vastly more lmpoi��mt
than the expenditure for their actlv-
ilies Is the expenditure by every citizen of the province of car over all the
sources of danger which enter into
his every day life. A single cigarelte
hutt thrown carelessly by the roadside
will occasion a lire which will wipe
oul more in value in limber than
would Luy llie province cigarettes for
tiie next fifty years; a little carelessness with brush burning may occasion a lire which will burn up more
than llie cleared land of the whole
valley will produce In the life of him
who neglected his blaze; a hole
punched In a donkey stack, or neglect in the use of fire pans might consume the money which would he devoted to logging machinery or that
timber district for the next generation; an uncared for camp lire -and
this Ib the greatest source of danger
of all may burn away m the ground
and finally blaze up in a mighty conflagration which will sweep away
more wealth than would be produced
by all the mines which the careless
camper or prospector might uncover
in all hla gold seeking days.
If the average citizen will give his
mural support to all the activities of
the government in its efforts to put
out fins; will work band in hand with
the district forest officers and respond
quickly when the cal loonies for as-
Isstance to a lire, he wlll build far
more broadly and securely than he imagines Ihe basis of prosperity for himself, for Uie people in his community
nnd   for   the   coming   generation.

It had been considered wise to do so
l if only as a matter of courtesy to the

These drawings would provide every
requirement for an Immediate call for
tenders.     Consulted   with     reference
i to the explicit meaning of clause four
I of the  agreement  between   the  com-
'oany   and   the   consulting   engineers,
Mr. Cleveland  stated  that  he h-id no
authority to speak for Sir John Wolfc-

if the board ��o desired he would communicate with them for instructions

with  the boxing game, for the fatal
        the    McCarty-Pelkey
battle has put an end to fistic contests in the Dominion, and it hardly
likely that Tommy could be induced
j to leave Canada.
1 Tommy began fighting In 1900, and
his first nine bouta were won by the
knockout route, ills first detent was
at the hands or Mike Schreck, In 1901.
Arter a rest he returned to the ring
In 1903, and went through that year
���without a defeat, but In 1904 was bested by Philadelphia Jack O'Brien. In
1905 he fought two draws with Hugo
Kelly, and was deteated by Jack Twin
Sullivan. In 1906 he knocked out Jim
Flynn and held Philadelphia Jack to
a draw, besides winning the heavyweight title by hiB defeat or Marvin
Hart. Tommy successfully defended
the championship against Jack O'Brien, IBM Squires, Bill Lang, and a
number ofolhers. until he met Jack
JohnBon in Australia, Dec. 26, 190S.
Tommy admits that he had no overpowering desire to fight the big
smoke, and put the price so high that
he  thought no  promoter  would  meet
1 It. In his recent bout with Arthur
Pelkey, stagid shortly before the McCarty tragedy, Burns showed that he
still carries a good wallop, although
he lacke;d many of his old tricks of
the trade.

4  stature of any man who ever held the
[heavyweight till', standing only five
feel seven inches. In the ring he
looked far from impressive, but he
was clever, had tremendous strength
in his arms, and great hitting power.
Tommy was a famous lacrosse player
before Ile became a boxer, and also
worked as a bell-hop In his youth.
As a "swell-dresser" he was almost
the equal of Kid McCoy, and he knew
a lot about clothes b:fore he went
into the business or selling them in

to step some if he hopes to make a
