ELECTRICAL POWER
Gi it y Corporation Filed Protest Against
Prices Charged by West Kootenay
Company
Provincial Government  Is  Asked to
Interfere in Order to Give
Bettor   Rate
Material increases In the charges
made for electrical power to the
smelters of the Kootenay and Boundary districts by the West Kootenay
Light and Power Co. and other electrical enterprises now subsidiary to
that company or at all events controlled by Lome A. Campbell, the
managing director of that corporation, have been announced to come
into effect and force from the 13th
proximo. So serious are these Increases that the smelter operators
declares that their production costs
will be swelled to such an extent
that the conduct of the smelting business at a fair profit will be rendered extremely problematical, while
the advances are characterized as
beyond reason, says the Victoria Colonist.
Manager Sylvester of the ranby
company, who is now in Victoria has
in consequence led the way in filing
with the provincial secretary a pe-
tion of protest, the intervention of
the executive being implored. Precisely what powers of control are
enjoyed by the government under
the several private charters affected
or under the water act of Britisii
Columbia are matters for careful consideration, but lion. Dr. Young has
commi" icated with Mr. Campbell,
who is at present in Montreal, asking that no steps be taken to—as
had been threatened—cut off the
supply of current to the smelters
pending adjustment of the new scale
price until the matters involved shall
have been considered by the executive with all parties concerned.
The inauguration of the new price
scale is incidental to the termination this month of the contract heretofore existing between the Granby
smelter and the power company, the
latter of which has served perem-
tory notice that unless a tendered
new contract be forthwith executed,
the power service will be summarily
discontinued July 13, the smelter in
consequence being possibly compelled to shut down, with heay loss and
the throwing out of employment of
several thousand men in the associated industries. The new rates demanded are said to represent an
advance of 40 per cent ou present
prices al the prevailing quantities,
While tbe sliding scale proposed op
erates contradictorily to the usual
practice, in that the rate is increased
as additional power is required until
use of the maximum would increase
the price by 75 per cent over the
'cale heretofore  obtaining.
The contracts of the B. C. Copper Company's smelter and the Trail
smelter are also presumably affected
similarly, although the former has
still a year to run, and the situation
therefore with respect to these
smelters is not one of such emergency as is that of the Granby. Of-
ficials of the latter corporation assert that the acceptance of the new
scale would necessarily increase
their production costs annually by
no less a sum than $75,000.

Protective  Association
The local merchants have completed the organization of the Prince
Rupert Merchants' Association. The
scope of the organization is very
broad and the objects sought are to
assist one another in the improvement, of general conditions affecting trade, such as the securing of
uniform hours during which places
of business shall be kept open, the
elimination of the danger of loss
from  those who seek credit.

BISHOP  RESIGNING
The Head of the Anglican Church on
Vancouver Island Will Live in
England
The Spokane Spokesman-Review
gives out the following interview
with Jay P. Graves which will be of
interest in this city:
"We not only have closed our
deal with the Rodger Brothers of
Butte and New York for the SO per
cent of the capital stock of the Hidden Creek Mining Company, which
we had under bond from them, but
we also have arranged to purchase
the remaining 20 per cent of the
stock from Mr. Rodgers, who originally interested them in the property," said J, P. Graves, vice presi-
elcnt of the Granby Consolidated
Mining Smelting and Power Company, at his office in tlie Terminal
building yesterday shortly after his
arrival from New York.
"This latter purchase will give the
Granby company complete possession
of the entire assets of the Hidden
Creek company, so we propose to
disincorporate the latter and turn all
of its property over to the Granby
company  as  soon  as   possible."
The acquisition of this mine will
mean considerable for the Granby
company for it will add from 6,000,-
000 to 12,000,000 tons of ore averaging 2 per tent copper, running as
high as 15 per cent in copper, and
gold and silver vaiues as high as 60
cents a ton.

(Special to The Journal)
Winnipeg, July 7.--R. L. Borden
last night spoke In Neepnwa, Hue
botbed of the grain growers. lie'
referred to the campaign of misrepresentation which was being carried
on by the Liberal press regarding a
general election before redistribution. It was found also that the
organized farmers were putting in a
note of warning about the elections.
The Conservatives had no direct
control of parliament, which could
only be dissolved by tbe governor

Decoration  Prizes
The judges of the decorated
buildings on Dominion Day have
awarded their prizes. Tlie police
station won the $15 prize for the
best decorated public place, and the

Craig.
On the steamer Princess Beatrice
this morning were W. G. McMorris,
who Is the active head of the British Pacific Coal Company, and Alex.
Vancouver, They are on their way
to Queen Charlotte City and will
then proceed at once to the coal
propositions controlled by the company and which are to be opened
up for commercial business at once.
That, in fact, is the object of the
visit of Mr, Faulds.
A few weeks ago, tt will be remembered, Mr. McMorris took a
party of miners in under the charge
of Superintendent Archibald. These
men went over the ground and uncovered the coal at various points
preparatory to getting full information upon which the mine could be
laid out,
The coal reveals itself in such
quantity thai Mr. McMorris deemed
it wise to have Mr. Faulds come on
the ground much earlier than he had
expected  to  require  his  services.
The two are now on their way to
the properly. Since Mr. .McMorris
left the coal has bee.ii uncovered for
a distance of three miles In a con-
tini s line. The quality is excellent, and Mr, Faulds will locate the
point where the Blope is to be sunk.
The. shipping polnl will he. at a
bay aboul seven miles from Queen
Charlotte ICty, where a port with
du feel of water and within a short
distance eel' the coal  beds  is round.

Prepared by Mr.
Durant
At the Tuesday evening meeting
of the boartl of trade the question
of the city's proposed hydro-electric

attendance being unfortunately
small. The members present passed
the folxlowing resolution:
"That in the opinion of tho b'lard

It was while the people of Mexico
in general and the people of Mexico
City iii particular were celebrating
last autumn the one hundredth anniversary of the' revolution of 1810
in i hich the Spaniards were driven
fi ie the country that W. E. Bell of
61:) Arizona street, a mining engineer of Chicago, and other El Paso-
ans witli hopes high, made denouncements and commenced to open
up prospects alongside the ancient
Spanish workings of 100 years ago.
Then like a bolt from ihe blue came
the students' riots in Mexico City,
followed by troubles in other portions of ihe republic. Says Mr. Bell,
by way of explaining this situation
to a newspaper representative:
"While the average mining man is
safe in any American towns or camps
or with the federal or Insurrecto
armies or with the United States
army, no prospector is particularly
anxious at this time to visit or work
in 'he more remote regions gecause
of the 'middle of the road' bandits
Hue. connected with either of the
armies. Hence we have Jedded not
to proceed with the work of opening up our mines in Tepee until
after the present roubles in Mexico
are at an cad.
"The mines in which 1 am interested in conjunction with some other
Elpaso men are located near Alma-
cation, in the southern part of Tepee. There is a number of properties in this district which are still
held by prominent Mexicans for purposes ot speculation. They have not
been worked in the last hundred
years, b"t the .Mexicans in control
want fo. 'ign capitalists to '.ay fancy
prices. And in my opinion, to tell
the honest truth, some of these old
mines would be worth under mod-
ern conditions the fancy prices
asked. For as a general thing Mexicans do noe understand the twentieth century pi\ cesses of mining. In
the old days before modern concentrators and cyanides they were
among the best miners in the world,
but they lose their way \ when it
comes to the big mills ani to running things on the gigantic scale
made necessary by the latter day
methods of  mining.
•■The mines of the Sante Fe district are of silver. One of the best
among those not being worked—In
fact, there is not a mine in the district which is being worked—Is Ihe
Esn.nosa. This old mine wns operated by the viceroys of Spain prior
to the revolution of 1S10 and with

metals, tbe native will put his samples into a horn spoon. A born
spoon I may well explain is a kind
of elongated spoon made from a
cow's horn. By putting In a little
water they can concentrate the samples secured and can get a pretty
good idea of the richness of the
samples    found    and   determine   the
ncenrage of gold, silver, copper or

Barges being located on the south
side of tlie Sante Fe arroya. Tho
principal workings here are upon
tliree veins, one vein being two feet
in width, and the third vein eighteen
Inches in width, A'l of these veins
produced high grade silver. I saw
the native gambuscinos bringing out
samples which averaged from 5 to
20 kilos in silver and from one-half
an ounce to two ounces In gold. A
kilo of silver is approximately 35
ounces Troy. These three veins
have been worked in chutes for a
distance of 1 500 feet In length and
down to the water level. I should
say that in this one mine there is
still standing from 300,000 to 500,-
000 tons of ore, which will average
anywhere from fifteen to sixty
ounces of silver per ton. I found
upon examination that it was an
easy ore to work, being amenable to
amalgamation and cyanides."

PRINCE  RUPERT JOURNAL
PROVINCIAL RIGHTS
L. Borden  Speaking  at  Edmonton
Enunciates Principle for Land
Administration.
He  Assures  the   Electors  That   He
Will  Give Them Control
of Resources
Speaking at Edmonton, R. S. Borden, the leader of the Conservative
party, said in the couse of his
speech:
Now before addressing some remarks to you on a question that has
attracted a great deal of attention
in this country aud is now under
the consideration of parliament, I
desire to say very briefly Indeed a
few words respecting some matters
of great moment to this western
country, because they are of great
moment to this western country, of
great moment to the people of Canada as a whole, because the interests of the west are the interests
of the east, and the interests of the
east are the interests of the west,
and any man who seeks to disunite
the provinces of Canada and who
seeks to arouse prejudice and misapprehension between tbe east and
the great west of Canada, that man
is unworthy of the nation and the
name  of  a  Canadian.
His View in  1002
1 take credit to myself that in
1902, when one of tbe young men
in public life 1 came into this western country. I take credit to myself in this respect, that I then said
that the time would come when the
people of the northwest would be
accorded the same rights of self-
government as the people of eastern
Canada. 1 have repeated it many
times since. I said in 1902 that
when these western territories were
created into provinces, these provinces should be given the same full
ownership and control over the pub-
He domains, their lands, minerals
and natural resources as it was
then, and is still, enjoyed by Ontario and all the eastern provinces
of Canada. The Liberal-Conservative party stands for that policy tonight, and will continue to stand for
It as it stood for it in 1907; and
1 renew that pledge tonight, and I
say that unless tbe signs of the
times are misleading, tlie day Is not
far distant when to the people of
the three prairie provinces will be
accorded that full right of ownership and control of their public domains, their lands, their natural resources, which has so long and so
unjustly been denied them, but I say
that the right will be given to them
not by the men now in power at
Ottawa, but by the Liberal-Conservative government soon to be in pos-
ession of the reins of power upon
the treasury bench.
Hudson's  Bay  Railway
The Liberal-Conservative party
was pledged lo tbe construction of
the Hudson Bay railway by Sir
Charles Tupper, then prime minister
of Canada and the leader of the Liberal-Conservative party. In a great
speech which he made in Winnipeg
in the campaign of 1S9G. The present government lias been in power
for 15 years; they have accomplished
nothing; they have trifled with the
question. I say to you that the Liberal-Conservative party is pledged to
you for the construction of that road,
and it will be constructed when it
is returned to power without unnecessary delay. And when it is constructed, the ownership wilt be retained in the state, and Canada will
operate that road for the benefit
of the people through an independent
commission, anil will not hand it
over to the tender mercies and control of any corporation in this
country.
Terminal Elevators
Just a word or two about them.
You no doubt, understand the position of the Liberal-Conservative
party in regard to it. The Liberal-
Conservative party in Canada has
put forward more ideals in defensive
legislation during the past five years
than any political party ever put
forward in Canada within the same
length of time. I know that men
who come to this country from
abroad are sometimes misled as to
the ideals and policies of these two
paries in this country, because we
are called the Liberal-Conservative
party. The whole difficulty about
the grain In this country, the whole
question of the mixing of the grain,
has arisen out of a violation of one
of the first principles of the British
law. That principle is this—that
no man who is an agent or trustee,
and the owner of a warehouse is a
trustee   if  anyone  is,  that  no  man
who is an agent or trustees ean be
permitted to put himself in such a
position that his personal interests
will be in conflict with his duty to
those for whom he is agent or
trustee. All kind of remedies have
been devised and tried; none ot
them proved effective. I believe that
the time has come when not only
the interests of the western producer, but in the interest of the
people of Canada as a whole, the
States should undertake the control
and operation of these terminal elevators; and the Liberal-Conservative
party proposes to carry out, and will
carry out that policy when it is returned to power at the next election
Chilled  Meat Industry
A subject of infinite importance
to the people of Alberta, a subject
of importance to other parts of the
country, but to no part e the country more than this great province
is that of the chilled meat industry.
We have placed ourselves on record
in regard to that question. I say
we are prepared, and propose when
returned to power to give such state
aid and encouragement to the chilled
meat industry by the erection of
abattoirs and refrigerator plants as
will put this Industry on a stable
and reliable basis so that farmers
will have reliably markets. Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the leader of the government for fifteen years, has been
dictator of Canada a prime minister
invested with, power thai no prime
minister had before, anil be bad
maintained protection just as ii
was maintained in 1896. Now
what explanation had he to give of
this? He says he is a Free Trader
by conviction, and last year, after
being ten days in the west, be declared that his ideal was a free Britisii tariff. He does not talk that
way when he is addressing audiences in some great industrial centre in this country. No, he has another tune to sing  then.
A   Free   British   Tariff
A free Britisii tariff; that has a
wonderfully attractive sound. A
free British tariff; what does it suggest? Overflowing treasury, abundance of everything, terminal elevators, Hudson Bay railway and everything you can imagine. Let us see
what a free British tariff means.
During the present year, according
to figures recently issued in a Liberal handbook in Great Britain,
which would not manipulate or falsify figures, the customs and excise
taxation in Great Britain will reach
three hundred and seventy five to
four hundred million dollars. Let
us give you some idea of what these
terms are. There are folks who say
there is no custom taxation in Great
Britain. 1 have a note or two right
in my hand. We have free tea in
this country; in Great Britain every
pound pays a tax of 5d, equal to ten
cents, and last year the people of
England paid customs duty on tea
of over five million dollars. In 190S,
the people of Great Britain paid
thrirty-three million of custom duty
on sugar and sixty-five million on
tobacco and their total taxation that
year was seven hundred and fifty
million dollars, and it will run up
to nine hundred million dollars for
this year if the Liberal handbook to
which 1 have alluded contains an
exact and correct statement of the
figures. And there is an income tax
in Great Britain for national purposes on all incomes of over JSO0.
The people last year paid six hundred millions of income tax.
No Relief From Taxation
Do not imagine that a free Britisii
tariff relieves you from taxalion. I
want you to understand that the
.Mother Country is more heavily
taxed than we are in Canada. What
is our position in regard to the tariff of the this country? We propose that the tariff of this country
should give every onportunity to the
people of Canada lo develop thp resources of this county. Why should
not this city of Edmonton be a
great industrial centre in this great
western country In the very near
future? Is there any reason at all
why in this great western country
there should not be great cities such
as they have in the States, Shicago,
Minneapolis and all those great centres of industry? Is there any reason why we should not have a great
milling industry established in this
western country on a very much
greater scale than today? I say
there is no reason. I say that the
Liberal-Conservatives stand for a
policy that will permit the resources
of this country to be developed. I
do not believe it is a good policy
for the people of this country to
send their natural resources abroad
to be manufactured, and to send our
people after them to obtain employment In another country which they
should find at home and then send
our good Canadian money after
both.

TO  RETIRE
The announcement of Hon. William Templeman that he will not
accept nomination in Comox-Atlin al
tbe next election, comes somewhat
as a surprise, as il was felt that
after his recent visit to the riding
he was prepared to contest the seat.
It must be admitted that the riding
has some terrors, altogether apart,
from those which pertain to the political side, for a man who has
reached Mr. Templeman's age and
who has little liking for a vigorous
campaign as he has. There is a
large area to cover in the district
and the minister might well feel
afraid  to face it.
With his retirement there is naturally speculation as to who will receive the nomination. The name of
Duncan Ross is freely used and there
are many in the Liberal party who
are anxious to see him enter the
contest.
On the other hand, William Sloan
has a number of supporters who
feel that if he desires to reenter
politics he should have first choice.
This they base on the action he
took when Hon. Mr. Templeman was
defeatel and it became necessary to
find a seat for him if the portfolio
was to remain with B. C. Mr. Sloan
magnanimously retired and undertook to have the minister returned.
It is probable that Mr. Sloan may
be the candidate therefore.
LAURIER'S   FEAR
Attorney General Hughes ot the
Australian Commonwealth describes
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's foreign treaty
proposals as entirely opposed to th?
Imperial idea and a direct negative
of that principle. The Sydney Morning Herald says: "We are with Sir
Joseph Ward in his astonishment at
Sir Wilfrid Laurier's (ear that a
standing committee of representatives of overseas dominions would
involve Imperial interference. We
maintain that the same autonomy
would exist as now with the added
power of co-operation with Great
Britain. Under present conditions
there is no connecting link between
meetings of Hie conference and no
authority  to thresh  out  details.'
ISSUE IN A  NUTSHELL
deep student of the trend of state
policies and there is absolutely no
doubt of the truth of this statement
of his. But if the facts that he set
forth are a warning to the people
of his own country should they not
be considered as such to the people
of this?
If reciprocity will break up the
imperial movement, and it is imperative that it be adopted now in order
to accomplish this result, should not
those Canadians who believe in that
movement become aroused to the ne-
cesslty of fighting tlie measure which
Its chief projector declares so openly is aimed against the object of our
hopes?
Those who wish to see us draw
closer to the United States rather
than the Mother Country, it is of
course to be expected, will throw
support behind the measure. But the
president's words should make It
clear to the men who do not regard
this development as desirable just
what the reciprocity proposals involve.
And the issue thus being joined,
there should be no doubt as to what
the verdict of the people of Canada
will be. In any case, it is well that
at the present stage of our growth
we should register it with our eyes
open as to all that is involved.
WHO IS TRUEST LIBERAL?
Perhaps the most telling portion
of Mr, Borden's speech was that in
which he quoted the words used by
Mr. Taft in New York some weeks
ago-. They are- of such profound
significance thai they will .stand repenting many limes:
"I have saiel that ihis was a critical time In the solution of the question of reciprocity," declared Ihe
president. "It is critical, because It
is now decidedly favorable lo reciprocity, li is exceedingly probable
thai no siie-li opportunity will ever
again come to the United States.
The forces which are at work In
England and in Canada to separate
her ley a, Chinese wall from the
United States and to make' her pari
ol an Imperial bond reaching from
England round the world to England
again dj ;e system eif preferential
tariffs will receive an Impetus from
tbe- rejection of this treaty, and If
we ivoul have reciprocity wlthoul all
this that I have' described and thai
1 earnestly and Blncerely believe will
follow Its adoption, We must take ii
now or give ii up forever."
Mr.   Taft    has   shown    himself   a
The "Toronto News," whose editor
was for a long time a follower of
Sir Wilfrid Laurier, believes that the
members of the present administration have no authority to speak for
the Liberal parly in support of reciprocity. There are Liberals opposing reciprocity who have done more
for the advancement of the Dominion than those now in the ministry.
The News selects from Liberals who
condemn reciprocity a group of fourteen and prints their names opposite
those of the cabinet ministers. It
declares that these men are far better qualified to judge of the financial, commercial and industrial
needs of the country than Sir Wilfrid and his colleagues. Here are
the two lists, one of ministers, the
other of Liberal opponents of reciprocity:
Wilfrid Laurier—Edmund Walker.
W. S. Fielding—Clifford Sifton.
Frederick   Borden—Lloyd   Harris.
Sydney Fisher—John R. Barber.
William Paterson—W. D. Mathews.
L. P. Brodeur—W. K. George.
Frank Oliver—D. C. Cameron.
A. E. Aylsworth—Z. A. Lash.
Rodolphe Lemieux—W. Mortimer

Wm. Pugsley—Robert S. Gourlay.
Geo.   P.  Graham—John  C.  Eaton.
Charles Murphy—W.  M.  German.
Richard J. Cartwright—E. R.
Wood.
The names in the right-hand list
include the president of the second
largest bank in Canada, the head of
the Conservative Commission, one of
the chiefs in a vast Canadian industry, the head of one of the greatest
paper industries, three or four ex-
presidents of the Toronto Board of
Trade, a former deputy minister of

the largest Canadian retail trading
concern.
lli.W lll'.V   REWARDED
Indians Who Assisted in Saving Life
Are   Remembered   by   the
Governmenl
A pleasing feature eif the regatta
:ii Cowichan liny em Dominion Day
was the presention on the wharf of
an honorarium of $50 each to the'
three Indians whose couralce wus
the means of saving lives during the
wreck of the Iroquois. The' three
Indians honored by the governmenl
in ibis way are- known as "Cowichan
Bob," "Doughnut Charlie" anil "William Jack," all of Cowichan. Tin
presenatlon was made on behalf ow
the provincial governmenl by F. IT,
Maitland-Dougal], government agent
at Duncan, who is president of the
regatta. In making the presention,
Mr. Maitland-Dougall, interpreted by
Chief Louis Underwood, made a felicitous speech, expressing the
thanks and pride felt by the government and the people of British Columbia at the heroism displayed b
these Indians in saving lives at the
Imminent risk of their own on the
occasion of the wreck of the Iroquois
on April 10 off Sidney. He (Mr.
Maitland-Dougall) had know them
for twenty-five years, and was espe-
cially proud to think they came forward as they did with a courage and
heroism that would be a noble example for generations to come. HIe
remarks were punctuated by loud applause, and three ringing cheers were
given for the three brave Indians.
After the government presentation
to each man, J. Critcbley, J. P., supported by a delegation consisting of
Councillors Alec Macdonald and
Chris Moses, presnted the three Cowichan heroes with $67.50 subscribed
voluntarily from citizens of North
Saanich, in recognation of the bravery displayed on the memorable occasion of the recent disasted. In
the course of his speech Councillor
Critcbley, J. P., read the following
letter from the president of the executive council of the government of
British   Columbia:
Dear Mr. Critcbley—Following my
personal thanks (o the Indians, whe
so nobly and bravely saved life at
the time of the Iroquois disaster,
when I promised recognition at the
hand of the government, I have to
advise that I immediately placed the
facts before the Hon. ttichard McBride, the premier, and he was
pleased to direct that the government of the province of British Columbia should give the sum of $50
to each one of the Indians as a very
slight tribute for the heroic work
done.
The government of the province
of British Columbia, His Majesty
King George the Fifth's government,
wishes to acknowledge in the most
public way the signal acts of bravery and heroism displayed by the Indians—and it should be a matter of
emulation to all good subjects of
His Majesty, to demonstrate those
high qualities of mandhood and self-
sacrifice, for which the British race
is noted—and perhaps it is upon the
sea that they are most made manifest. A. E. McPHILIPS,
President   of  the   Council.
 o	
May Fill Lots
B. B. Kelliher, chief engineer of
the G. T. P., while in the city visited
the corner of McBride street and
Third avenue in company with
Mayor Manson and Engineer Davis
and expressed his approval of the
proposition to fill In the G. T. P.
lots there situated. Formal permission will likely be given therefore
and other property owners will
doubtless follow the example so that
rock may be placed on the lots to
within about twelve feet of the street
level.

REFUSES TO  RUN
Hon. Wm. Templeman Will Not be a
Candidate in Comox-Atlin at
Coming Election
Duncan Ross and William Sloan Ave
Both  Spoken  of as  Probable
Standard Hearers
Hon. William Templeman, who
who is expected lo be the candidate
in the Liberal interests in this constituency at the next election, will
not contest the seat acordlngc to his
announcement made to the different
associations in the riding. lie has
sent out the following letter:
Dear Sir—In view of the possibility of an election before the ex-
piriuion of the present parliamentary
term, It is desirable that I should
state to the friends and supporters
of the government In Comox-Ailin
what my future course of action
will he.
1 huve been assured by friends in
every portion of the constituency
that my candidature wou'd be acceptable in the Liberal electors, and
many Conservatives have Joined with
my political friends In declaring thai
in view of the policy of Ihe government am", the generally satisfactory
results of my efforts as their representative, tlie issue of a contest
whether it takes place this year or
next year, undoubtedly would be an
endorsement of the government and
myself. I am glad to know that I
have been of some service to the constituency of Comox-Atlin, and that
the confidence given me in 1900,
when I was elected by acclamation,
has not been, In the opinion of my
electors, misplaced.
When, upon my defeat in Victoria,
Mr. Sloan resigned to enable me to
continue as a minister nf the crown
the duty of representing British Columbia in the government of Sir
Wilfrid Laurier, it was generally understood, I think that my connection with Comox-Atlin would be of
a tentative character, as the electors
would probably desire, upon the conclusion of the parliamentary term, to
select as~*their representative a resident of the district.
I feel that I am greatly Indebted
to   the  electors  of  Comox-Atlin  for
their confidence in the past and their
good will for the future. The knowledge I have gained of the constituency will be of great value to me,
aud will enable me to assist its representative in promoting the Interests of the district in many ways. I
therefore desire to say, with great
regret, that I will not offer myself
for nomination in Comox-Atlin at
the coming election, and I respectfully suggest that early consideration be given to the question of
choosing another candidate. I believe Comox-Atlin is Liberal and
that it will reaffirm its support of
the Laurier government whenever an
opportunity offers. I will extend
every assistance in my power to the
candidate selected, and with the united action of the party in the constituency l here can be little doubt of
success.
Again thanking the electors of Co-
mox-Atlln for the confidence they
have placed in me, and wishing them
all prosperity, 1 am, yours respectfully, W. TEMPLEMAN,
Hon, Mr. Temp'eman left hero a
few weeks ago after making u tour
of the northern part of the constituency, it wns generally believed that
he. would allow his name to go Into
nomination when the election time
(•nine. The letter shows a change
of programme on his purl.
II is well known that the minis-
ter of mines is nol a lover of the
strenuous work of a campaign. Me
dreads the travel lhat is necessary
In covering a constituency like Comox-Atlin and this doubtless had its
effect inleading to his decision.
Besides this the minister would
like to sit for Victoria and after a
long political career has a desire to
win his home seat, where he has
been so unsuccessful in the past. It
Is possible that he will contest Victoria or Nanaimo, the latter constituency being regarded as exceedingly
unsafe for Rulph  Smith,
With the retirement of Mr. Templeman from the field the question
of his successor in the Liberal Interests here conies up. It is but
natural to expect that William Sloan,
If he wants the nomination should
have a good claim on it. He had
the magnamity to step aside and
offer the seat to Mr. Templeman
when the latter was defeated.
It is repoterd that he would again
like to resume his seal. Duncan
Ross is looked upon as a very probable   candidate,   however.     He   has
hurried south to confer with Mr.
Templeman and others in the matter
and there is a strong probability
that there may be quite a friendly
little conflict between Mr. Ross and
iMr. Sloan as to the right to run.
From the Conservative point of
view there has been no announcement of a candidate yet. It is known
that the matter is receiving attention, and a convention will he called
very soon  to decide the matter.
McGill University has conferred
the honorary degree of LL. D. on
Hon. H. E. Young, provincial secretary and minister of education of
British Columbia. Dr. Young,
through the fact that he is at present acting premier of the province,
was unable to be at Montreal for
the  ceremony.

I "Dick" McBride as Seen by Tay Pay J
T. P. O'Connor, M. P., the famous
Irish journalist, writes interestingly
in the London Daily Chronicle about
Hon. Richard McBride, Premier of
Britisii Columbia, who is at present
in England. "Tay Pay" says in
part:
You lake steamer and go to Victoria the capital of the Island of
Vancouver nnd the political capital,
though some hours from the mainland of the great province. And
there you find yourself In a city of
dazzling beauty—of Indescribable
•harm. Perhaps the best impression
I can give of Victoria is of a Pacific
Venice—it gives a suggestion of
beautiful placid water everywhere—
without the age and history as yet
that makes Venice venerable, but, on
the other band, with vaster piles of
beautiful buildings and with that
snowy whiteness that conies from
the brilliant sunshine and the newness of the place.
An Arresting Personality
And as 1 neared ihe pier at which
the steamer was to stop, in one of
the  winter  months  of   last  year,   I
saw there for the first time for several years the remarkable man who
is the ruler of this mighty country.
At once, and as my first Impression,
there came the idea thai  there was
something singularly appropriate  in
the man and  the country  he rules.
Like the country itself, Mr. .McBride
is massive.    1 should say he is over
six feet  high;   he has shoulders so
broad that even a professional ath
lete   might   envy   them;   a   chest   of
great breadth and depth, and a phy
sique altogether thai is striking and
imposing—I   might  say  dominating.
from   any   crowd   of   men,   however
big,   this   figure   would   stand   forth
in conspicuous and haunting   relief;
you   would   find   it difficult  to  keep
your  eyes   off  hihi.     And   the  face
and   head   are  as  striking     as     the
splendidly and broadly proportioned
body.    The face is massive bul short
and round.    It  is typically Irish  in
its features, but instead of the typically  rubicund   complexion   of     the
men and women of the Emerald Isle,
it has the pallor—healthy but pallid
all  the same—of those who live in
the  severer  climates  of    the    New
World.    The  head  is again  massive
and surmounted by a mane of thick,
snow-white hair, it makes even more
striking the personal appearance.
There is at first glance a curious
resemblance to the head of Sir Wil
frid Laurier—the same complexion,
the same massiveness of head, the
same mane of white hair, but the resemblance Is not as great when you
examine the two men more closely.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier has the long,
thin face of the typical Frenchman
■—indeed the Dominion Premier
looks to me as If he had walked out
of a portrait of the noblesse of
France In the days before the Revolution. Mr. McBride lias the short
face, the massive head and the thick
hair of the Celt of the West.
Analysing still further the face
nnd features of the great British
Columbian, you see the curious contradictions with ihe impression of
athletic massiveness. The mouth is
small, the deep-set eyes are soft
brown, the' feel and bands are small
—there are delicacy, sensitveness, a
certain artistic element in Mils big
massive man as well as strength
And, above all, the dominating im-
presslon is of a strength thai is at
the siiine time the simplicity, the
geniality, and  the comradeship    of
that true dei iratlc sentiment you
find  in  these new  countries,  whore
men all starl tr  small beginnings
before they reach  to    wealth    and
power,
Grenl Religious Tolerance
The- ancestry of the man will supply von wiih ih,- explanation of the
apparent contradictions In his phy-
Blque, and the different factors thai
make up the powerful and attractive
personality, Asked once by an Importunate elector ns to his special religious views—for they have some
faint echoes even in far British
Columbia of the racial and religious
(euds nf our Olel World, and especially of that part of it which lies
within the frontiers of Ireland—Mr,
McBride described with great humor
how his father wns nn Orangeman
from the norlh, nnd his mother a
Catholic from the south of Ireland.
and how us July 12 approached
every year the fat her bought and the
mot her tore from the wall the picture of William Orange, nnd how,
on the other hand, the father treated
In like' fashion the chromotype of
the Pope which the mother thought
the fittesl ornament of the home.
The- elector wns silenced amid the
genial laughter of the crowd, And
Mr, McBride Is the perfeel amalgam
of these two contradictory types of
Irish life, Me. has abounding toleration for men of all   creeds,
nizes no political distinction because
of differences in religious faith, and
with equal grace and general acceptance attends tlie bazaar for the
Catholic Church and the opening of
the Baptist chapel. And in his
character there are blended the
stern strength of the Ulster Orangeman and the genial softness of Ihe
Catholic  mother from  Minister.
11 is one of tlie secrets of Mr. Mc-
Bride's unique hold over his people
that he belongs to them in every
nerve of his being. He was born
in British Columbia, and though he
went to the law school at Halifax, in
Nova Scotia, to get his professional
training, be has lived almost every
hour of bis life in his own province
and among his own people. And he
is never out of touch with them or
wiih their outlook on things. Any
day you can see him in Victoria,
moving easily among the people,
saluting every man he meets, for he
knows them all, or seated in the
vestibule in the beautiful Canadian
Pacific hotel over a cup of tea, talking easily and familiarly to everyone
who comes to join his circle. He is
the ruler with something of the Cadi
in his methods and manners.
Some nine to ten years ago Mr.
McBride was the leader of the Opposition, resisting a great railway bill.
At the end of a terrific fight, extending over months, tbe ministry
was called by the whole voice of the
country to take up a surprising and
in many quarters an unwelcome
transformation of the political life
of Ihe country. Hitherto ministries
had been a collection of men of different parties—a personal rather
than a political combination. Mr.
McBride resolved that this was an
unhealthy method of governing representative institutions, and he substituted party for personal government; or, in other words, government by party instead of government by faction.
He was just a little over thirty
years of age when he reached this
great position—the youngest prime
minister in the whole Britisii Empire. He has held office for nine
years since. The extent of bis pow-
is best realized when it is said
that of the forty-two members of
the legislature thirty-eight are Ills
supporters. Of the remaining four
two are Liberals and two are Labor
men, and the Labor men are found
In his lobby at least as often as in
the opposite. In these years he has
achieved wonders for his province.
Looked at with suspicion when be
started, he appealed in vain to financiers and bankers for assistance in
financing the province; now he is
independent of them all. The province has made such progress that today It stands in as high a financial
position as any country in the Empire.
Everywhere you see manifestations of the indomitable energy of
the man. The illimitable resources
of the vast country are being developed with feverish energy and under
the guidance of a man who knows by
personal travel almost every inch of
the vast territory. His last and
most ambitious project is the foundation of a British Columbian University, which he means to make as
to endowment and as to professorships the equal of any univeisity in
the world. Again and again the
Conservative party of the Dominion
have' asked him to leave his province
and take his place on the greater
stage of the Dominion In the parliament bouse al Ottawa, But he has
steadily resisted all such appeals up
in the present. His hearl and his
work are still among his own people.
FOREST PRESERVATION
Some  Rules  to  Be  Followed  in the
Protection   Of   Forest  Wealth
of   thi'   Province
PARLIAMENT  BUILDINGS
VICTORIA—A beginning In the
very large and provlnclally Import-
nni work of completing the parlla-
mi'iit buildings group is to he made
during the present summer, tenders
for "nn addition to ilic parliament
buildings"—Which will he the handsome library block to be the central
feature of the new Superior street
front—having just been invited by
the engineer of the public works department, J. B. Griffiths,
These tenders arc to be In the
hands of the minister not later than
August 15, and construction is to be
upon the revised plans of F. M, Rnt-
tenbury, the original architect of
British Columbia's stately public
buildings, a concise description of
which appeared some few months
ago.
Completed, this new central block
will probably involve an expenditure
of approximately $250,000, and give
the province ami Its capital a new
ii'i'hiii'ctural treasure and unchal-
lengeably the most complete and
ultra-modern public library building
recog-ln the Dominion of Canada,
In connection with the eminently
practical and systematic forest protection and conservation campaign
initiated this season with the reorganization of this branch of the
Provincial Lands Department, it has
been brought home to the public as
perhaps never before, how vast a
sum of money the people of British
Columbia are and have been losing
annuallly just for want of reasonable, common-sense carefulness in
the use of fires in timbered areas,
says an exchange in dealing with the
question.
Of course a certain proportion of
the annually  inevitable  forest    fire
loss must be set down to accident and
acts of Providence, such    as    lightning, and to locomotive sparks, but
the majority of causes remain indisputably the criminal thoughtlessness
of campers and the equally criminal
carelessness  of  land     e'earers    and
loggers.    Last season alone no fewer
than  1184  fires  were  officially    reported to the provincial department,
besides   many   more    no   doubt,   of
which rib cognizance wasitaken; and
these occasioned actual loss in standing  timber  of  $103,976.00,   in     cut
timber  of  $63,974.00,  and     in    improvements—mills,   bridges,     build
ings,   etc.—of   $371,965—a   total   of
$629,915.00,  besides  which  six residents of the. province met death by
suffocation  and  two were killed  by
the  falling  of  trees .while  engaged
in the suppression of fires.    Private
companies, too, expended during the
season no less than $200,000 in supplementing  the    government s    fire
prevention and suppression work, so
that little less than a million dollars
In one year may be taken    as    the
price paid  by the people of British
Columbia, largely for the    carelessness of campers and    others    with
fires,  discarded  cigar butts and  cigarette  ends,  matches,    combustible
gun wads, etc.
And if the price of such carelessness be set down at even half a million in one year, what a stupendous
total is piled up during all the years
that this criminal carelessness has
been going on and British Columbia's great asset, standing timber,
hss been suffering proportionately.
More than fifty per cent of the
annual forest fire loss it is safe to
say might have been and may be
avoided by the exercise of reasonable precautions in the starting and
extinction of camp fires after they
have served their legitimate purpose.
Are you careful?
The lumbering busin-cs brought
$17,000,000 into British Columbia
last year.    That helped you.
The forests yield $2,500,000 a
year to the treasury and pay one-
third of the taxes. That helps you.
The government is trying to1 mako
the natural resources of the province
pay all the taxes to avoid taxing
you. ••
Will you help the Government to

BRITISH   EMIGRATION
How   tlie  Population  of the Mother
Country Is Affected by the
Steady Loss of Settlers
Mr. John Burns, during the discussion at Ihe Imperial Conference,
declared that the Inlal emigrants
from Great Britain to all countries
this year would amount to 300,000,
of whom it was estimated 2,10,000,
or nearly 80 per cent, would go to
different parts of the Empire,
Mr. Burns said thai In 1906 the
total number of emigrants from tbe
mother country was 194,671, of
whom the different, parts of the Empire took 105.17S, or 54 per cent.
In 1910 the numbers were 231,944
and 159,000 respectively, showing
OS  per cent to the Empire.
For Ihe four months of the present year there was an increase over
the corresponding period of 1910 of
2.1,000, or 29 per cent, and the Empire had taken the whole of that increase. Australia and New Zealand
bad received 10,000 more in the
first four months of 1911 than in
the similar period of 1910, or 133
per cent Increase.
if ihe rale of Increase for the
first four months were continued
for the whole of 1911 the total emigrants  from    Great    Britain  to all
countries would amount, to 300,000,
of whom it was estimated 230,000,
or nearly SO per cent, would go to
different parts of the Empire—a
generous contribution in quantity
and quality from the mother country.
But for the saving of life represented by a lower death rate and a
much lower infant mortality, this
emigration would be a very heavy
drain on the United Kingdom. In
ten years Scotland and Ireland combined had increased their population
by 210,000 or less than the total
emigration from Great Britain for
one year (1910). With a diminishing birth rate the mother country
could not safely go beyond 300,000
a year, and if 80 per cent of those
went to different parts of the Empire, the Conference would probably
agree that his was as much as they
could reasonably require.
The Dominions were entitled to
have the surplus, but they must not
diminish the seed plol. , They could
absorb the overflow, but they must
not   empty the tank.

CENTRAL   PRISON
Provincial Government Will Erect Up-
to-Date Building for
Criminals.
A  Modern  Building  Planned  Which
Will be Fire Proof and
Modern
The new central prison for the
provincial government to be erected
in Burnaby, near New Westminster,
is to be both structurally and in
equipment thoroughly up to date,
having been carefully planned with
a view of obtaining perfect lifht,
ventilation and sanitation, in conjunction with absolute security. The
building is to be located on the site
commanding a fine view over Deer
lake and facing north by northeast,
so that all cells will get the sunshine at some time of the day.
The   Design
The exterior design is plain and
appropriate, the central building at
the crossing of the wings having a
pyramidal slate roof with a lookout
platform on top, from which a complete view of the surrounding country will be obtainable, while the
space in this roof is to be utilized
for the storage tank In connection
with the water supply. The plan
is in the form of a cross, 346x1911
feet, and all prisoners will have individual cells of nine and a half feet
The north or front wing is planned
as-the administration building, with
accountant's anil warden's offices,
waiting room, armory, library, male
and female officers' mess rooms and
male and feale visitors' roos on the
ground floor. Above this are two
floors of living rooms, with seven
bedrooms and bath and toilet on
each floor. The intersection of the
wings is occupied by a large central
hall, 50 feet square, on the ground
floor, and a chapel of similar size
with speaking platform and two
clergymen's rooms on the first floor.
Above the chapel is accommodation
for a surgeon, photographer, matron
and hospital nighl guards, with
large uiiassigned attic space.
The Cell  Wings
The east wing is planned lo contain 100 cells for male prisoners,
six punishment cells, thirteen shower
bath cells, one tub hath cell, and a
temporary laundry, where 20 future
cells will be located. The west
wing will have only the outer wall
built at the present time, and thus
can be used as a work yard (luring
Inclement weather, but will eventually have the same accommodation
as the east wing. The south wing
will have cells for 54 female prisoners, three punishment cells, six bath
cells, and temporary laundry, where
nine future cells will be located. The
top floor of this wing will be utilized
for hospital patients, with six cells
and a day ward for meals and similar accommodation for female prisoners, each section having a bathroom attached and the two sections
being distinctly separated. The cell
wings are connected to the central
building with pasages six feet wide.
The basement of the central and
administration buildings will be
utilized for boiler room, kitchen,
steward's room, bakery, store room,
meat and vegetable cellars, and a
vault, but are all almost entirely out
of ground.
Steel and Concrete
The central and administration
buildings are to be of steel frame
construction   with   brick   walls   and
stone dre gs, reinforced concrete
floors with wont floor over, except
in e corridors, and bate und toil-
els, w.iicl. wi.i have Tt'raza tile
il.iore.g. The ceils pn .,'.>] are o
be constiitcteti of reinforced concrete, four tiers and basement nigh,
and are arranged back t; back with
inspection runway and vent duct between and galleries in front which
are not to be connected with the
side walls. The galleries are three
and a half feet wide and have light
barriers along the front and across
the ends, so that they may be used
for exercise purposes. The outside
walls of the cell wings are to be
of solid brick work with stone dressing and fitted throughout with steel
cashes. The cells have concrete
walls and partitions with steel bar
fronts set about a foot bock from
the front of the concrete tiers, all
arranged to insure complete ventilation, light and sanitation, while at
the same time preventing improper
intercouse among the prisoners and
consequent contamination of the
younger by the older inmates.
Each cell,, except those for punishment purposes, will have a basin
for cold water supply, a closet, a
bed hinged to the wall, so as to
hold up against the same, and an
electric light drop. All cells will
be connected by»t\vo outlets with
the ventilating system and will also
have inspection slots from the runway at the rear. The cell doors are
so arranged that by the use of a
lever placed at one end of the tier
any individual door or the whole
twenty may be opened at the one
operation.
Healing ami Ventilation.
The administration building is to
be heated by direct and direct-indirect radiation, while the cell wings
are heated by direct-indirect system
the fresh air being admitted through
the walls behind sections and drawn
through the cells to a vertical galvanized iron duct, connected to a
long horizontal concrete duct at the
top, which is in turn connected to
an outlet fitted with an electric fan.
The ventilation system is so aranged
that the foul air is drawn off just
beiow the ceiling and just above the
floor, and all will be set so that the
same amount of fresh air passes
through each cell.
Although the building will he
thoroughly fireproof, as the term Is
understood, four rising water mains
with slandpipe and hose reel at each
lioor level will be Installed, while
the various wings are entirely cut
off from each other with metal-clad
doors.
HARVESTERS WANTED
A     Bumper    Wheat    Crop    Seems
Assured  in Ihe Prairie Provinces This Year
"Last year 22,000 men were
brought from Ontario, Quebec and
the maritime provinces to the west
and this number was sufficent to
handle the comparatively small harvest," said J. Bruce 'Walker, the
best authority today on crop conditions in the prairies, speaking at
Winnipeg.
"This year," continued Mr. Walker, "2,000,000 acres of additional
land has been sown to wheat, and
given an average of 20 bushels to
the acre, this is going to add 40,-
000,000 bushels to be gather and
harvested. With this increased acreage, together with the highest yield
per acre for a number of years, I
do not think I am overestimating
when I say 40,00 men will be required  to  harvest  this   200,000,00

WATER  NOTICE
bushel cros that seems to be in
sight this year.
The increased wheat area in Saskatchewan alone represents in round
numbers 1,000,000 acres and the
startling and interesting feature
about this is that the Indefinitely
greater proportion is in the northeastern, northwestern and west central portions of the province. In
addition the province of Saskatchewan will show an increase in oats
of about 300,000 acres. The eastern part of the province shows a
slight decrease in wheat acreage, but
a very large increase In oats and
flax. Another striking feature Is
that 80 per cent of the increased
acreage is in those parts where the
new settlers have gone this year.
"The question is—-where are
these 40,000 harvesters coming
from? Eastern Canada has a good
crop of her own and cannot spare
possibly half that number of men.
The mere fact that the harvest in
the west will be ten days earlier
than usual checks the eastern supply, which will then be in full-tide
of their own harvest. The Grand
Trunk    Pacific   and    the    Canadian
Northern are known to ln> looking
for men south of the international
boundary, but it seems that Great
Britain will have to supply many
thousands of men if the wheat crop
of 200,000,000 bushels Is to be safely garnered."

WILL RAISE SPOKANE
The steamer Princess eBatrice this
morning brought news from the
stranded Spokane that the Salvor,
now at work with the United States
vessel, will be able to salve her.
Already the crew of the Salvor Is at
work making temporary repairs.
ONLY   ONE   TRIP   MORE
The C. P. R. steamer Princess
Beatrice arrived,this morning with
the familiar figure of Capt. Whiteley
still on the bridge, The captain has
been appointed a pilot at Victoria
but does not enter upon his duties
for a few weeks yet. He will make
one more trip north before quitting
the C. P. R. service to enter the
pilotage ranks, for which he is eminently fitted.
The Beatrice is still on the Queen
Charlotte Island run and among the
passengers on board were W. G. McMorris who Is at the head of the
British Pacific Coal Company; Alex.
Faulds, M. E., who Is acompanying
him; Mr. Coles, representing southern capital which Is looking into investments on the islands, and D. R.
Young of the Black Cod Canning
Company of Queen Charlotte City.
Mr. Young is taking over several
barrels of salted herring to be used
as bait in his fishing enterprise.
EXAMINING   WRECKS
It is highly probable the steamer
Spokane, which now lies submerged
to her boat deck In the waters in
Plumper bay, will be salved. The
Salvor of the B. C. Salvage company
at Esquimalt was alongside when
the steamer Prince Rupert passed
and investigations were being made
into the condition of the vessel with
a view to arriving at plans for the
raising of her and putting her in
shape to tow to repair works.
The Spokane is resting easily and
it is expected she will be found in

tlie hundred-yard race from th
Cambridge University blue, but he
was fully two yards ahead of New
Zealand's champion in the 220 yards
race. Tait won the mile race hy
sheer speed and staying power, beat
ing England's champion, Owen, by
one yard.
Sporting Life says it was a great
day for Canada, and then adds:—
"There were no trials to pick the
nien, and as a consequence races
were thrown away. Nevertheless,
the keen, enthusiastic manner in
which the representatives of Canada
and Australia fought out the issue at
the first great Empire championships, should afford an assurance
that tlie meeting will be but the first
of a series of great Empire games
in which a sure Imperial spirit will
be developed. It may then happen
that international tests of the future
may be the Empire against the rest
of the world. On the showing we
shall not be a long way behind."
AFTER NATIONAL HONORS
B. P. Schwengers, tennis champion of the Pacific Northwest, will
represent Victoria, B. C, at the Canadian tournament at Niagara about
the first of August. Providing he
is successful in capturing the highest honors there, he will enter the
Newport tourney, where the best
American players will compete. It
Is considered unlikely that Captain
Foulkes of Vancouver, the present
Canadian champion, will go east to
defend his title.
LORD DESnOROUGH COMING
The interesting announcement is
made that Lord Desborough, who In
his day was one of the best all-
round athletes In England, will visit
Canada shortly and will travel across
the continent to the Pacific. In his
college days, when he was plain W.
H. Grenfell, he was associated with
rowing, swimming, fencing and punting. Writing to a friend in the west,
Lord Desborough says: "I am glad
to see life saving is making such
progress in Canada." He also adc
that he will be in the west In the
autumn.
It would be difficult to say what
Lord Desborough has not done. He
has rowed from Oxford to London
in one day, stroked an eight across
the English channel won punting
and fencing championships, thrice
climbed the Matterhorn, shot In
the Rockies, twice swum Niagara,
caught 100 tarpon fish in three
weeks in India, and helped to make
the Olympic games in London three
years ago the success that they were.
He was president of the Britisii
Olympic council and represents Britain on the International Olympic
committee.
Only recently Lord Desborough
was nominated as president of the
Marylebon Cricket club.

MINING  SCHOOL
Movement to Have one Established
ut   Nelson—Would  lie Great
Benefit
With I lie object in view of the
establishment of a school of mining
for the Kootenay, the Nelson board
of trade is in correspondence with
the' various institutions of learning
and scientific institutions In Canada
anil the United States respecting
modes of organizing a school of this
character, and the probable cost of
creation and maintenance. The
model that is favored is that of the
school of mines at Sudbury, Ont.
which is conducted as a special department of the Sudbury high school,
and Is the child jointly of the Sudbury high school, the mining men of
tile district, and the Ontario governmenl. Nelson has reached the
point where a new high school building is required, r.nd after the summer term there will be four instructors on the staff. For years fourth
year work has been done by the
Nelson high school, admitting Its
matriculates to the second year of
McQlll and Toronto universities, and
a department of mining, under a
mining Instructor, is therefore in
line,

Good, Sound Reasons for
MONARCH Economy
Monarch Ranges are built so that they can
never have "air leaks"—
For around every opening Into the body there
Is a   Malleable   Iron frame to which  the
steel is riveted.
No putty is needed In such Joints.    They are
air tight when new and stay air tight.
If these other ranges were built In this way
they might be economical too.
Investigate this matter of rivet construction
versus  stove  bolts aud stove putty.    It's
Important  to  every  one  using  or  buying
a range.
