The following, reprinted from
"Hansard" of May 18, 1009, ex-j
plains in the words of Hon.   Mr. j
Pugsley,     Minister    of    Public
Works, why dredging operations j
have ceased on Okanagan River:
Mr. Burrell. I would like to
ask the minister a question in reference to dredging the Okanagan river between Okanagan
lake and Dog lake. There was
an item in the estimates of $10,-
000 and I have recieved inquiries
as to what is being done by the
government engineer in connection with this work. It will take
a sum largely in excess of the
amount which has been appropriated to make a work of any
practical use and I am anxious
to know what the department is
doing.
Mr. Pugsley. Provision was
made last year for improving
the channel between Okanagan
lake and Dog lake, but owing to
the fact that Dog lake is 14 feet
lower than Okanagan lake, I, myself after considering very carefully the report of the engineers,
have very grave doubts as to the
desirability of proceeding with
the work. I am inclined to think
that it will not be proceeded with
at the present time and I will tell
my hon. friend why. I am afraid
that if the outlet of Okanagan
lake is lowered so as to give a
free run to the water the result
will be to lower the level of Okanagan lake and that might
necessitate dredging.
Mr. Geo. Taylor. Put a lock
there.
Mr. Pugsley. A lock might
be put there but that would be
quite an expensive operation. 1
am inclined to think that it
might be better to delay proceeding with the work until a more
careful study is made of the conditions. There is always the
danger, when you attempt to
altar natural conditions with the
idea of improving the navigation
so as to give access to Dog lake,
that the result will be to materially iujure the navigation of
Okanagan lake which will be
much regretted.
Mr. J. A. Currie. I understand the length of the work contemplated is only a few hundred
feet.
Mr. Pugsley. I thing it is
about two or three miles.
Mr. Burrell. Of course my
object was to ascertain if the
work was thoroughly looked into.
A great many people there
realize that it will lower the lake.
The people of Kelowna would be
willing to have it lowered but
they feel that as the work would
probably involve a large expenditure of money a definite and
well considered plan should be
prepared and they are anxious to
know if steps are being taken in
that direction.
Mr. Pugsley. I am rather inclined to think that we will not
do any work this year but that
we will allow the appropriation
to stand.
TENDERS WANTED.
Tenders wanted for grading that part
of Ellis Street which was damaged by
washout, between Ellis Street bridge
and the Post Office. Municipality will
furnish two Fresno scrapers. For further information inquire of H. Murk,
chairman of Board of Works, Tenders
must be in by Thursday, June 17. addressed to Municipal Council, Penticton.

The Board of License Commissioners met in the council room at

Should the Municipality purchase the irrigation system ?
We want the opinions of the
fruit growers on this subject,
and give a special invitation to
our readers to express their
views on the subject, throrgh
the columns of the Prfss next
week. In this case we believe
it would be best for each writer
of a letter to permit his own
rii.ie to go into print.
We notice in the Keremeos
Chronicle that track laying and
bridge building is being resumed
by the Great Northern Ry. west
of Keremeos. The Similkameen
Star contains the further intelligence that the railway company
have purchased 13} acres of land
west of Princeton for yard purposes. The probability is that
this road will be pushed on to
the coast without delay. Should
this prove the case we may look
for the early construction of the
Nicola.  Penticton, Midway line.
COMMUNICATIONS
(We do not hold ourselves responsible for the
opinions ol' corroHpondonta.)
I'd iii<! Editor of Tub Penticton Prbm :
Dear sir-
Just a few words in the way
of  explanation   to our  beloved
couneilmen.
In reply to the municipal
clerk's letter, stating that Mr.
Murk thinks that he paid me too
much, I will explain briefly.
Mr. Murk came to my house and
wanted my services in grading
Ellis Street, saying that the
grader was going south and he
required the work done before it
left. I told him that I was exceptionally busy at the time on
my own land, but in case of the
grader going away I would stop
and take charge of the work.
I am to understand from tho
note received from the Municipal
clerk that Mr. Murk made definite arrangements what my
wages would be. Gentlemen,
Mr. Murk states a falsehood; it
was never mentioned, and 1 also
understand that he made the
statement that  I   was  running
after the job; falsehood number
two. He called ine across tht!
street sometime before this job
in question was spoken of and
wanted me to take charge of the
Municipal road work. I said
that it would be impossible for
me to undertake it as I had all I
could do on mv own property.
He said, "I will wait until you
get through," stating as an inducement that he would give me
50 cents to a dollar extra a day,
also saying that if I would accept it this year that he would
give it to me next year. That is
the first time I knew that he
held his office for life, although
by his talk some of you council-
men won't have the honor of representing the people the second
term, saying Mr. Power could
not serve two masters (the S. O.
Land Co. and the public). He
made a statement in the council
room that my horses stood four
hours in the bush. He lies again;
it was only three. Now Mr.
Couneilmen to stand and look
you up and down you would impress one as being intelligent,
why can you not exercise your
God given faculties? You surely know that the minister of
public works is squandering the
peoples' money. Are you all
afraid of him? He knows no
more about the work than a
school boy. I can take less than
half the money that he has expended and do more work, and
do it as it should be done.
Now gentlemen, I did net come
to this country to work on the
reads or to learn roadmaking
as my education in that line was
acquired before taking up my
residence in Penticton, and at
any time I can return antl
assume my pesition, which was
always filled to the perfect satisfaction to all, which is more
than Mr. Murk can say. My
claim 2.50 can be paid by
cheque,  postal or money order.
Thanking you Mr. Editor, for
your valuable space,
Respectfully yours,
H. J. Huycke.
Penticton June 6th, 1909.
To tho Editor of The Penticton Press:
Dear Sir, ���I see by last week's
paper that arrangements have
been made and committees
formed to carry through the
sports on July 1.
The sports are to be threefold:
horse-racing, athletic, and aquatic, and there is a committee to
solicit subscriptions to the general fund.
Now, sir, there are some people
who prefer horse-racing, and
there are some who prefer athletics, and others who prefer
water sports, and these persons
would much prefer that their
subscriptions should go towards
that kind of sport that they
favor, and so I want to point out
to the executive that they will
get a larger amount of money by
keeping the subscription lists
separate, and allowing people to
say which sport their subscription is to go towards. I know
more than one pesson who won't
contribute anything if the subscriptions go into a general fund.
Yours truly,
Citizen.

Should Act Quickly.
Although somewhat of a surprise at the time, the full significance of the closing down of the
j dredging operations on Okanagan River was not realized until
the arrival this week of a belated
copy of Hansard containing the
expression of the Minister of
Public Works on the subject, to
the effect that, in all probability,
no further work would be done
this year. It had been thought
that the ceasing of operations
would be merely temporary.
To those at all acquainted with
Okanagan Lake, it is patent that,
even if the lake were lowered
several feet, it would not seriously interfere with navigation.
The residents of Okanagan Falls
and other sections of Dog Lake
merely ask that the river be
dredged sufficiently to permit
navigation as it existed some
twelve or thirteen years ago.
As is known, at that time a
steamer capable of carrying two
carloads of freight regularly
navigated the river during the
summer until it was destroyed
by fire.
We would suggest that the
municipal councils, boards of
trade and Liberal associations
of the entire valley at once telegraph to Ottawa requesting that
the work be immediately resumed.

wrapped himself in a dressing gown
nii.l now gripped ihe rail convulsively,
while his features were blanched to
the color of putty nnd his eyes were
wide with terror, though puffed and
swollen from sleep. His lips movej in
a vain endeavor to speak.
CHAPTER XV.
ON the morning after the episode
In the Northern. Olenister
awoke under a weight of discouragement and desolation.
The past tweuty-IVur hours with their
manifold experiences seemed distant
aud unreal. At breakfast he was
ashamed to tell Dextry of the gambling debauch, for he had dealt treacherously with the old man in risking
half of the mine, even though they
had checked the senseless, unreasoning
lust for piny that possessed him later.
This lapse was the Inst stand of his
old. untamed instincts. The embers of
revolt in him were dead. He felt that
he would never again lose mastery of
himself, that bis passions would never
best liini hereafter.
Dextry spoke. "We had a meeting
of the 'Stranglers' last night." He always spoke of the vigilantes in that
way. because of his early western
tra'ning.
"What was done?"
"They decided to act quick and do
any odd jobs of lynchln'. claim jump-
In' or such ns needs doiu'. There's a
lot of law sharps and storekeepers in
tbe bunch who figure McNamara's
gang will wipe tbem off (lie map next."
"It was bound to come to this."
"They talked of ejectllt' the receiver's men and puttin' all us fellers back
on our mines."
"Good! How many can we count on
to help us?"
"About sixty. We've kept the number down and only taken men with so
much property that they'll have to
keep their mouths shut."
"I wish we might engineer some kind
of an encounter with the court crowd
and create such nn uproar that it
would reach Washington. Everything
else has failed, and our last chance
seems to be fir the government to step
in���that is. unless Bill Wheaton can dn
something with the California courts"
"I don't count on him. McNamara
don't care for California courts no
inorc'u he would for a boy witli a pen
shooter���he's got too much pull at
headquarters. If the 'Stranglers' don't
do no good we'd better go iu an' clean
out the bunch like we was killln'
snakes. If that fails I'm goin' out to
the States un' he a doctor."
"A doctor!    Whnt for?"
"I read somewhere that In tbe United
States every year there is 40,f)00.(HKI
gallons of whisky used for medical
purposes."
Clenister laughed. "Speaking of
whisky, Dex, I notice thut you've been
drinking pretty hard of late���that is,
hard for you."
The old man shook his hend. "You're
mistaken.    It ain't hard for me."
"Well, hard or easy, you'd better Clll
It out."
It was some time later that one of
the detectives employed by the Swedes
met Cleulster on I''rout street and by
an almost Imperceptible sign signified
bis desire to speak with him. When
they wi-rc- nlone he said:
"You've been shadowed."
"I've known th.it for a long time."
"The district attorney lias put on
some new men. I've fixed the woman
who rooms next to him. and through
her I've got u line on some of them,
but I haven't spotle.l them nil. They're
bad ones, 'up river' men mostly, remnants of Soupy Smith's Sltagwny gang.
They won't stop nt anything."
"Thank you. Ill keep my eyes
open."
A few nights after Olenlster had reason to recall the words of the sleuth
and to rcallne that llie game was growing close and desperate. To reach his
cabin, which sat on the outskirts of the
town, he ordinarily followed one of
the plank walks which \yound through
the confusion of tents, warehouses and
cottages lying back of the two principal streets along the water front. This
part of the city was not laid out in
rectangular blocks, fin' In the early
rush the lirst courts had seized whatever pieces of ground they found vacant and erected thereon some kind of
buildings to make good their titles.
There resulted a formless jumble of
huts, cabins and sheds, penetrated by
no cross streets and quite unllghted
At night one leaviug the Illuminated
portion of the town found this darkness Intensified.
Glenlster knew his course si ivell
thut he could have walked il blindfolded. Nenrlug a corner of (lie warehouse
this evening he remembered that the
planking at fills point was lorn up. h i
to avoid the mud he leaped lightly
across. Simultaneously with bis jump
he detected a movement In the shadows that banked the wall at his elbow
and saw the flaming spurt of a revolver
shot. The mnn had crouched behind
tbe building nnd was so close flint it
seemed impossible (o miss. Clenister
fell heavily upon his side, nnd tho
thought flashed over bim, "McNamara's thugs have shot inc."
Ills assailant leaped out from Ids
hiding place nnd ran down the walk.
the sound of his quick, soft footfalls
thudding faintly out Into the silence.
The young man felt no pain, however,
so scrambled to his feet, felt himself
over with care nnd then swore roundly. He was untouched. The other
had missed him cleanly. The report,
coming while he wns in the act of
leaping, had startled hlin so thut Yn.
hnd lost his balance, slipped upon the
wet boards and fallen, His assailant
was lost In the darkness before he
could rise. Pursuit was out of the
question, so he continued homeward,
considerably shaken, and related the
Incident to Dextry.
"You think It wus some of McNamara's work, eh?" Dextry inquired
when he hud finished,
"Of course. Didn't the detective
warn me today?"
Dextry shook his bead. "It don't
seem like the game Is that far along
yet. The time Is coming when we'll
go to the mat with them people, hut
they've got the aige on us now. so
whnt could they gain by putting you
away? I don't believe it's them, but
whoever it is you'd better be careful
or you'll be got."
"Suppose we come home together
��� fter this," Coy suggested, aud they
arranged to do so. realizing thnt danger lurked In the dark corners and
that it was In some such lonely spot
that the deed would be tried a?aln.
They experienced no trouble for a time.
though on nearlng their cabin one
night the younger man fancied thai he
saw a shadow glide nway from Its vicinity nnd out Info the blncknes of
the tundra ns though some one had
Flood at his very door waiting for him,
then became frightened nf the two fig-
ores lipprnnehlng. Dextry hod not observed it. however, anil Olonisler wns
not positive himself, but it served to
give hlin the uncanny feeling tint
some determined, lusci'upulous force
was bent en his destruction. He determined to go nowhere nnnrmed.
A few evenings later he went home
ea-ly nnd wns busied In writing when
Dextry came 111 nboul 10 o'clock. The
old miner hr.ng up his cent before
speaking, lit a clgirette. Inhaled deeo-
ly, then, nmld nioulhfuls of smoke, began:
"I had my own toes over t'.ie e'ge
tonight. I was ml 'took for yen. which
compliment I dou't aim to have repeated."
Olenister questioned him eagerly.
"We're about llie same height', an'
these hats of our? are alike, .lust as I
came by thnt lumber pile dowu yonder
a man hopped out an' throwed a 'gat'
under my nose. He wns quicker than
light and near bl.owed my skelp Into
the next block before he saw who I
was. Theu he dropped his weepon aud
said:
" 'My mistake. Co on.' I accepted
bis apology."
"Could you see who be wns?"
"Sure!   Cucss."
"I can't,"
"It was BroUOO K: 1."
"Lord!" ejaculated Clenister. "Do
you think he's after me?"
"lie ain't after nobody else, an' take
my word for it. it's not notliin' to do
witli McNamara nor thnt gnmbllu' I'OW.
He's too game for that. There's some
other reason."
This wns the first mention Dextry
bad made of the pigbt ai the N irthern
"I don't know why he should have It
In for tne. I never did hlin any favors," Clenister remarked cynically.
"Well, you watch out anyhow, I'd
sooner face McNamara nn' all the
crooks he enn hire than that gambler."
During tlie next few days Hoy undertook to meet the proprietor or the
Northern face to face, but the. Kid had
vanished completely from his haunts
He was mil in liis gambling hall al
night nor on the street by day. The
young man was still I Killing for llilll
on the evening of the dance ut ihe ho
te! when he chancel t i meet one of Ihe
vigilantes, who Inquired of him:
"Aren't you late for the meeting?"
"What meeting?"
After seeing thai they were alone the
other stated:
"There's an assembly tonight nt 11
o'clock. Something important. I think
I supposed, of course, you knew about
It."
"it's strange I wasn't notified," sold
Hoy. "It's probably an oversight. I'll
go along witli you."
Together Ihey crossed the river to
the- Irss frequented part of the town
und knocked nl the door of n large un-
llghted warehouse, flanked by a high
board fence. The building faced Ihe
- i   bill   was  Inclosed on  fhe ot':""
three sides by tbi ��� ten fo* wall, inside
i>f which wen- stored lartre quantities
of coal an.] lumber. Alter some delay
they \:,'!-v admitted and passing down
through th ��� dim lit. high banked lanes
of merchandise came to the rear room,
where they were admitted a *iin. This
compartment had been lifted up for the
warm storage of perishable goods during the cold weather and, being without windows, made an ideal place for
clandestine gatherings.
Clenister wus astonished to find
every man of the organization present.
Including Dextry. whom he supposed
to have gone home an hour since. Evidently a discussion had been in progress, for a chairman was presiding,
nnd file boxes. kegs and bales of goods
hnd been shoved back against the walls
for scats. On these were ranged the
threescore men of the "Stranglers."
their serious faces lighted i:uperfectly
by scattered lanterns. A certain constraint seized them upon Olenister's
entrance. The chairman was embarrassed. It was lint momentary, however. Clenister himself fell that tragedy was in tlie air, for It showed In the
men's attitude and strike eloquently
from their strained faces. He was
about to question the man next to hlin
when the presiding ollicer continued:
"We will assemble here quietly wltb
our arms at 1 o'clock. And let me
caution you again net tn talk or do
anything to scare the birds away."
Olenlster arose. "I came late. Mr.
Chairman, so I missed hearing your
plan. I gather tbat you're out fot
business, however, nnd I want to be In
It.    May I ask what Is on foot?"
"Certainly. Things have reached
such a pass that moderate means are
useless. We have decided to act an''
act quickly. We have <���������' : '���������' ever
legal resource, and now we're going to
lamp out this gang of robbers hi our
own v, ay. We will get together in an
hour, divide into three groups of twenty men, each with a leader, then go tn
the houses of McNamara, Stlllman and
V'ool'bees. take them prisoners, and"���
He waved his hand In a large gesture.
Olenister made no answer for a moment, while tbe crowd watched him intently.
"You have discussed this fully?" be
asked.
"We have. It has been voted on, and
we're unanimous."
"My friends, when I stepped into this
room just now I felt that i wasn't
wanted. Why. I don't know, because
I have had more to do with organizing
(his movement than any of you and
because I have suffered just as much
as fhe rest. I want to know if I was
omitted from this meeting intentionally."
"This Is an embarrassing position to
put me In," said the chairman gravely,
"but I shall answer as spokesman for
these men if they wisli."
"Y'es; go ahead," said those around
flic room.
"We don't question your loyalty, Mr.
Olenister, but we didn't ask you to
this meeting because we know your attitude���perhaps I'd better sny sentiment ��� regarding .ludge Stlllman'a
ulece���er���family. It hns come to us
from various sources that you have
been affected to the prejudice of your
own and your partner's interest. Now.
there Isn't going to be any sentiment
in llie iifTuirs of the vigilantes. We nre
going to do justice, aud we thought the
simplest way was to Ignore you In this
matter and spare all dlscu.saiou ami
hard feeling ill every quarter."
"It's n lie," shouted the young man
hoarsely, "n damned lie! You wouldn't
let me in for fear I'd kick, eh? Well.
you were right. I will kick. You've
hinted about my feelings for Mis*
Chester. I.et me tell you that she is
engaged to marry McNamara and that
she's nothing to me. Now. then, let
me tell you further that you won't
break into her house aud hang her uncle, even if he is a reprobate. No. sir!
Th's Isn't tbe time for violence of that
sort. We'll win without it. If we
can't, let's fight like men and not hunt
in a pack Ike wolves. If you want to
do something, put us back on our
mines and help ns hold tbem. but. for
Cod's sake, don'l descend to assassination and tbe tactics of the Mafia!"
"Y.'e knew you would make that kind
Of a talk." said the speaker, while the
rest murmured grudgingly. One of
Ihem spoke up.
"We've talked this over In cold blood,
Clenister. ,und it's a question of their
lives or our liberty. The law don't
enter into It."
"That's right." echoed another at bis
elbow. "We can'! seize the claims,
because MeNuninni's got soldiers to
back h!ni up. They'd shoot us down.
You ought to be the last one to object."
lie saw thai dispute was futile. De-
tci-niliintiiin was stamped ou their
faces too plain for mistake, and bis
argument had no more effect on them
than had the pale rays of tbe lantern
Inside him. yet he continued:
"I don't deny that McNamarn deserves lynching, but Stlllman doesn't,
lie's a weak old man"���some one
laughed derisively���"and there's a
woman In tile bouse. He's all she has
lu the world to depend upon, and you
would have to kill her to got at him.
If yon must follow this course, take
the others, but leave him alone."
They only shook their heads, while
several pushed by him even as be
���-poke. "We're going to distribute our
favors equal." said a man as he left.
They were actuated by what they
called justice, nnd he could not sway
I hem. The life and welfare of the
north were In their hands, ns they
thought, and there was not one to hesitate. Clenister implored the chairman,
but the mnn answered him:
"It's too late for further discussion,
and let me remind you of your prom-
Ice. You're bound by every obligation
thnt exists for nu honorable man"���
"Oli.  don't   think  tbat   I'll  give the
imp   away!"   snld  the  other:  "but   I
warn you again not to enter Stlllmnn's
house."
Ue followed out Into the night to
find that Dextry had disappeared, evl-
'antly    wishing   to   avoid   argument.
Roy had seen signs of unrest beneath
the prospector's restraint during the
past few days, nnd indications of a
fierce h-nger to vent his spleen on the
men who had robbed him of Ids most
sacred rights. He was of an Intolerant,
vindictive nature that would go to any
length for vengeance. Retribution was
part of his creed.
On bis way home the young man
looked nt his watch to find that he hod
but an hour to determine his course.
Instinct prompted blni to join his
friends and to even the score with the
men who had injured bim so bitterly,
for, measured by stindards of the
frontier, they were pirates with their
lives forfeit. Yet he could not conn
tennnee this step. If only the vigilantes would be content with making
nu example���but he knew they would
not. The bind hung.M' of a mob Is
cosy to whet ami hard to hold.
McNamara would resist, as would
Voorhees and the district attorney.
then there would be bloodshed, riot,
chaos. The soldiers would be called
out and martial law declared, the
streets would become skirmish grounds
Tbe vigilantes would rout them with
out question, for every citizen of the
north would rally fo their nld. and such
men could not be stopped. The judge
would go d ��wn with the rest of tin"
ring, nnd what would happen to   her?
He took down his Winchester, oiled
and cleaned it. then buckled on a belt
of cartridges. Still he wrestled widi
himself. He folt that he was being

Helen talking. He slunk buck Into
the shadows and remained hidden for
a considerable fine after the lawyer

from the hotel and passed close by.
When the last group had chattered
a way down the street, he turned to the
front of the bouse, and mounting the
steps, knocked sharply. As Helen appeared at tlie door, he stepped inside
and closed it after him.
The girl's hair lay upon ber neck and
shoulders lu tumbled brown masses,
while her breast heaved tuniultuously
at the sudden, grim sight of him.
She stepped buck against the wall, her
wondrous, deep gray eyes wide and

It was evident that his nerves, so sorely Strained by the events of tlie past
week, were now snapped utterly. A
human soul naked and panic stricken
Is no pleasant sight, so Olenlster dropped his eyes and addressed the girl
again:
"Don't take anything with you. Just

The creature on the stairs above
stammered and stuttered in iiilrlngly:
"What outrage Is this. Mr. Olenlster?"
"The people of Nome are up In anus,
and I've come to save you. Don't stop
to argue."   He spoke impatiently.
"Is this some r ruse to get me Into

Barefoot Bliss
The old days nre gone when children could not go barefoot
without the risk of having feet cut by glass, pierced by rusty
tacks, or bruised by "stubbing." Shoe manufacturers have
adopted the Eastern idea and are manufacturing Sandals.
Children can now have all the joys of going barefoot and
none of the dangers.

The Dominion forest reserves
oc:upy an important place in the
report for the year 1908 of the
Superintendent of Forestry, Mr.
R. H. Campbell, which has lately
been issued. The Riding Mountain reserve, the largest of these,
is the most fully treated. Its
topography and condition in regard to lumbering are noted and
emphasis is placed on the important place it must occupy in regard to the water supply of the
ad,jac2nt country, both for domestic and industrial purposes.
An evidence of the latter is the
gran ti rig of permission to the
Minnedosa Power Co., of Minne-
dosa, Man., to erect a dam on
Clear Lake, in the reserve, so as
b renler the water of the Little
Saskatchewan available for the
production of power. The timber
survey of the reserve is practically completed. The fire ranging
service on the reserve, and, in
addition, on the Duck Lake and
Porcupine reserves was during
the year previous (1907) organized with a Chief Ranger in
charge and six assistant rangers.
The protection of game on the
reserve is also being given consideration.
An important aspect of the
management of the Moose Mountain reserve results from its use
as a summer resort, especially
along the shore of Fish Lake.
Regulations for granting occupation of camping sites by lease or
otherwise are under consideration. The main question in the
management of the reserve is
its protection from fire.
The setting aside of a permanent forest reserve to the north
of the Saskatchewan river, opposite Prince Albert, has also been '
recommended.
Notice is also taken of the re-:
solution passed by the Irrigation
Convention in 1907 favoring a
forest   reserve   on   the   eastern
slope of the Rockies,
TIMBER REGULATIONS.
The amended timber regulations adopted in December, 1907,
are given in full. The main
principle of these is that the timber is to be sold by public auction
at the office of the timber agent
for the district, and that before
being offered for sale each berth
shall be surveyed and shall be
examined by a competent cruiser.
The timber cruiser then submits
a sworn report as to
employed patrolling the forest
reserves and forested districts,
distributed as follows:- B. C.
Railway Belt, 21; eastern slope
of the Reeky Mountains, (frcm
the International boundary to the
Saskatchewan River,) 7; Edmonton district, 5; Prince Albert district, 7; rangers were also kept
along the C. N. R. from Erwood
to The Pass, two along the Ath-
abaska River from Athabaska
Landing to Lake Athabaska and
in the Lesser Slave district. Attention is called to the great risk
of lire along the G. T. P. c instruction. Reports of extensive
damage by fire to forests in the
district west of Edmonton were
not, however, officially confirmed.
A strong plea is made for the
extension of adequate fire protection to the forest country
north of the Saskatchewan,
stretching from Hudson Bay to
the Rockies.
TREE  DISTRIBUTION.
The value of the Forestry
Branch in the free distribution
of trees from Indian Head to
farmers in the Northwest is
noted, and suggestions made for
improved facilities at the Nursery Station. The report of the
Chief of the Tree Planting Division, Mr. N. M. Ross, which
forms an appendix to the Superintendent's report, announces
a distribution of over 1,700,000
trees in the spring of 1907. In
19C8 trees were sent to 1424
applicants; of these 464 were in
Manitoba, G59 in Saskatchewan
and 301 in Alberta. Planted on
the Spruce Woods forest reserve,
the growth of conifers at Indian
Head and the permanent plantations at the Nuisery Station are
also discussed.
IRRIGATION.
The subject of irrigation, which
also is placed under the Superintendent of Forestry, constitutes
an important part of the report.
Copies of the report may be
obtained on application to the
Superintendent of Forestry, R.
H. Campbell, Esq., Ottawa.

We have made larire shipments of trees into the Okanasran Valley and can ffive the names
of the lamest planters in that district, who have planted our stock successfully, if desired.
Our trees are (frown in the famous Niagara district, in Ontario, in a climate very similar
to that of the Okaimiran Valley, and our trees are consequently better suited to the needs of
planters there, than are the Coast stock, being more hardy in the wood, with a more abundant
supply of fibrous roots, which count for much in making an investment in an orchard a safe and
permanent one.
We shall be pleased to hear from prospective planters, with a view to supplying them with
the best grade of trees, true to name.
We wish to secure the services of a good reliable man to represent us at Penticton and
vicinity, and will make liberal terms to the right party, for all, or a part of his time.
