Settlers Asked to Take Precautions Against Spread of
Fires in Dry Season
The following communication,
which has been sent to settlers
throughout the district, is worthy
of the attention of every rancher:
Dear Sir:���The open winter,
the light fall of snow ancl many
other signs point to a hot, dry
summer which will be extremely
bad for forest fires. These are
liable to cause many thousand
dollars in damage, not only to
standing timber but to your
buildings, improvements and
crops.
I therefore ask your assistance
in preventing these fires. You
have no doubt on your pre-emptions areas of slash, which are
fire traps for the carelessly-dropped match, burning tobacco, or
a spark from a locomotive. Perhaps you are planning on clearing
these areas up. If so, let me
urge upon you the necessity of
doing so before the dangerous
season arrives, and thus prevent
the serious forest fires which
have been too prevalent in the
past.
Of course, the most dangerous
places are near buildings and
along railroad rights-of-way, and
public roads, and these should
be seen to first.
By observing the following
simple rules the burning may be
be simply done:
lst. Burn as early in the spring
as possible. If the burning cannot be done before May 1, get a
permit from the local forest
guard and burn under his supervision. Do not wait till the soil
becames too dry, as you will then
burn up valuable vegetable mat-
which enriches the soil.
2nd. Always construct a light
fire break around the slash, by
throwing any brush or litter in
for say 20 feet. This will confine the fire and give you a chance
to get around it quickly should
it start to spread.
3rd. If possible have one or
more neighbors assist in burning
so that the fire may be controlled
at all times.
4th. Always start your fire in
the afternoon if conditions are at
all dry. The best time is about
five o'clock. The brush is then
dry from all-day sun and burns
better. There is little chance of
a wind springing up, and the
fire burns out during the night.
5th. If the slash adjoins tim-

Under Construction
-A.
i  m~r- ���
Chas. V. "Smith, -whose store
was burned a month ago, has
begun the erection of anew building, which is to be ready for
business before the end of the
month. Mr. Smith has purchased the Hill property, adjoining
his premises, and will conduct
business there temporarily. Part
of his new stock is already on
hand, and the balance will be received before the completion of
the store, so that there will be
no unnecessary delay in resuming
business on the same large scale
as before the fire.
No Censure for Minister
Ottawa, Mar. 6:���A motion to
censure the minister of labor, in
connection with the Nanaimo
strike, was defeated in the house
of commons by a vote of 80 to
43. Premier Borden declared
the minister had done all that
was possible.
Toronto,   Mar. 6:���Sir George
Ross's condition is unchanged.
Will CONNECT LINE
EARLY IN APRIL
It now appears probable that
the railway tracks from east and
west will be connected early in
April. Tracklaying was resumed
east of Wordswortn (Mile 338)
this morning, and but 34 miles
require to be laid to Nechaco
Crossing, where it is expected
the golden spike will be driven.
From the other end about fifty
miles of track have to be laid before the end of steel reaches the
crossing. Duncan Ross, the contractor, who was in Smithers
last evening, says that, barring
unfavorable weather, which may
delay the work by causing mudslides, the track should be connected before the middle of next
month. -Review.

millions on security of common
stock, which was the former re
quest.
Bulkley Hay Makes a Hit
A great deal of hay is being
shipped from Smithers by ranch
ers of the district. That it will
hold its own in the market is evident from the following extract
from the Prince Rupert News:
"Recently Mr. John Lindsay,
of the Lindsay Transfer company,
ordered a couple of tons of Bulk-
ley valley hay as a trial order.
He had been getting a good
quality of hay from the south,
was anxious to test the interior
product. It was just delivered
and he has tried it on the horses
"Jack says it is the finest quality of timothy hay he has ever
seen, and the horses almost smile
when they see it."���Review.
LEGISLATURE
Provincial Parliament End*
Busy Session���Many Bills
Become Law
Victoria, Mar. 4:���The legislature completed its work and was
prorogued tonight. During the
session 106 bills were introduced.
Of these 96 passed.
A formal address was delivered by Lieutenant-Governor Paterson in closing the session. His
last term ol office expires in
November next. It is rumored
that he will be succeeded by
Hon, Price Ellison, minister of
finance and agriculture.
BENTON UNARMED
AT TIME OF DEATH
Washington, Mar. 2:���Wm. S.
Benton, the British subject,
slain at Juarez, was unarmed ai d
shot to death in Villa's office, according to information which has
reached Washington officials.
One version of the affair says:
"Benton carried no arms when
he approached Villa's office in
Juarez. He spent two hours
waiting for the interview that
ended in his death, walking back
and forth on the front of the
office building; he was shot
through the stomach after he
entered the office and received
other wounds afterwards, although the first was mortal, it is
declared."
The post-mortem, it is said,
may serve to confirm the character of the wounds, though the
probable state of the body in a
tropical climate eleven days after
death  may defeat this purpose.
No answer has been returned
to the latest query from Governor Colquitt of Texas, as to whom
he could address for the surrender of the rebels who killed Ver-
gara. the Texas rancher.
The United States Government
desired to make an examination
of Benton's body at Chihuahua.
The United States desires that
British anr1 American representatives shall view the corpse in
eompan* with physicians. General Villa previously acceded to
the request.

In a district like that in which we live, where so much capital is
required l'or the development of great natural resources, the condition of the money market is a matter of considerable importance.
That the financial stringency of the last few months has had the
effect of deterring progress in the Northern Interior is a regrettable
but undeniable   fact.    Now,   however,   authorities  appear
the demand. .   The commission
declares that it is desirable to
promote co-operation among the
"���7    producers and  also among   the
ar to  be . ...
united in ih-.' opinion that the financial crisis has passed and that
money will soon be readily available for legitimate uses.
The price of money in the London market is reflected by, and
regulated by the Bank of England rate. It is only necessary to
find out what the rate is to know if it is easy to obtain money.
That rale now stands at 3 per cent., which, according to the Colonist, is an indication that monetary conditions are again normal.
Ever since October, 1912, when the Balkan war broke out, and the
Bank of England rate rose to 5 per cent, there has been difficulty
in borrowing money on the London market. The rate has fluctuated since that date. In April, 1913, it went down to 4A per cent,
but October last saw it rise again to 5. In the middle of January
it dropped to Ah. a week later to 4, and some three weeks ago to 3
buyers of agricultural produce.
It declares that the maintenance
of the present protective tariff
for articles produced by farmers
is necessary and reasonable, and
suggests that the British Columbia
producer in his fight for a sufficient share of the northwest market should be given assistance by
the active co-operation of the
railways and express companies
operating in thc province.

Those Wasted Millions
Startling indeed is the result
anyone can obtain who will pause
for a few moments and foot up
percent. At the same time the French bank rate was reduced
from 4 to Iii- It had stood at the former figure since October, 1912.
The immediate effect on the London market of the reduction
of the Bank of England rate was a rapid rise in the prices of "gilt jthe amount of waste laid bare by
edge" securities. Consols rose nearly 5 points, India 'A per cent, 81 the report of the commissioners

London market showed an increase in value of $260,000,000. The
demand for gold and money and credit which prevailed throughout
the world duiing the latter months of 1913, is now being met.
Stocks generally show a steady upward tendency. Financiers say
the revival that has been so long awaited is now in full current.
The renewal of optimism in the center of financial activities is
of supreme importance to this country, where so many large works
are in progress, and where so many others are about to be undertaken. All indications are that conditions will continue to improve from tnis on, ancl that all the money necessary for legitimate
development will be forthcoming. Judging from this it is safe to
a iticipate that the balance of the year is full of promise for British
Columbia.

Testing Canadian Woods
Because of the importance of
tnis subject to all classes of wood
users, the Forestry Branch of the
Department of the Interior is
about to undertake an exhaustive series of tests at McGill University. Beginning with a few
of the more important of the
commercial species, every kind
of wood in the country will be
tested for its strength in various
ways, and for different conditions
of growth and moisture content.
At present the only information
we have on this subject is based
upon tests of woods grown in the
United States, many of which
were grown under entirely different conditions to those found in
our own country.
Explorer Meets Death
Adelaide, Australia, March 2:
���Dr. Douglas Mawson, the Australian explorer, has returned
from the southland. On summing up the work of the expedition, Mr. Mawson said they
were eminently successful. He
told in blunt English the story of
the death of Lieutenant Minnie,
who was lost in an unfathomable
crevasse with dogs and sleigh.
The only thing possible as a comrade was a dying dog on a ledge
150 feet below.
Dr. Mawson nearly died of exhaustion and lack of food. The
sledge lost with Lieutenant Minnie had the supplies on. The doctor fought on pluckily against the
weather and other obstacles, living on practically nothing, until
at last he found a cache of food
left by a search party. He managed after a hard struggle to
reach the camp and said his escape was most remarkable.
Great Labor Agitation
London, March 2:-"The British Government is using the
magic wand of Empire to assist
in the destruction of organized
labor. What do we care for the
Empire? These champions of
labor must be returned."
These were the words of seventy speakers from nine platforms in Hyde Park on Sunday,
to over one hundred and fifty
thousand people. It was united
Labor's protest against the drastic deportation of the South African strike leaders, and in addition to being by far the largest
meeting ever held in Hyde Park,
was remarkable for the fact that
the Trades Unionist, Socialist,
and Syndicalist leaders all spoke
in the same strain and from the
same platforms. The auditors
cheered wildly any attacks on
the governments either of Britain
or South Africa and seemed to
ominously welcome any reference
to the coming labor clash in
Britain, where present agreements, affecting a million workers, will shortly run out.
