Extend Lumber Market
In the market extension work
which is being conducted on behalf of the lumber industry by
the Hon. W. R. Ross the export
propaganda has naturally attracted most attention from the public
on account of the immediate results secured. As is well known
bo less than thirfcy million feet of
lumber is being shipped on vessels especially secured for this
purpose, this quantity represents
little less than the total provincial export for 1914. The gratifying feature of this business is
the large proportion of low grades
that have been marketed. As
far as the lumber market for
Douglas Fir is concerned Mr.
Ross's department during the
past few months has acted in conjunction with the industry in
handling a very considerable volume of business.
-Another recent matter of invest has been the issue of the
_mphlet dealing with British
Columbia timbers, which is one
of a series designed to inform the
foreign buyers fully concerning
the qualities and uses of British
Columbia woods and to assist in
establithing new trade connections for our lumber industry
abroad.
This work, however, has not
been allowed to interfere with a
similar campaign directed at the
domestic market both in Eastern
Canada and the Prairie Provinces.
In Eastern Canada a fine exhibit
of our timbers has been shown at
the annual exhibition at Toronto,
and has proved of much interest
to Eastern buyers, many ©f whom
have written to the Minister of
Lands concerning the difficulties
that have been felt in marketing
British Columbia forest products
in man? parts of the East because
the consumer, architects and the
trade generally know so little
about the uses and qualities of
our Western woods, and congratulating him on the progressive
advertising methods adopted.
This exhibit was in charge of a
representative of the Department
and was aided by the circulation
of leaflets calling attention to the
merits of British Columbia timber as against imported material
from the Southern States. A further pamphlet of value to the B.
C. manufacturer in this market
has been one entitled "How to
Finish B.C. Timber," the object
of this work is to push the use of
our Western woods for interior
finish. It is planned to continue
this missionary work in the East
by establishing a branch office and
exhibit in Toronto, and thus to
ensure that architects, contractors, government departments and
municipal bodies in the East are
made fully cognizant of the advantages of using British Columbia woods.
In the prairie provinces the
work has been vigorously taken
up along similiar lines. A permanent exhibit has just been
placed in a prominent position in
the Industrial Bureau in Winnipeg which will show in an effective manner the many forest products of this province which are,
or should be, marketed in the
Prairie provinces. Other exhibits
will be prepared for annual fairs
and travelling exhibitions in cooperation with prairie agricultural  associations.    The  publicity

The hunting party under the
guidship of Mr. Wm. Manson,
returned to town this week. The
bag consisted of two rams, two
deer and three goats.
Osc&r Ward of New York was
the hunter; he speaks highly of
the district and reports very good
sport.
Any rags? Any old iron? chanted the dealer, as he knocked at
the door.
The man of the house himself
opened the door. "No, go away!"
snapped the householder irritably
"There's nothing for you, my
wife is away."
The itinerant merchant hesitated a moment and then enquired: "Any old bottles."
Have you ever wondered why
people mount a horse from the
left side? The reason Is very interesting. The habit was formed because men wore the sword
upon the left side; therefore to
mount a horse from the right
side, while wearing a sword, was
not practical—the sword would
fet entangled between the legs.
The habit of wearing the sword
on the left side, rather than on
the right, was formed because
mest men were naturally right
handed, so they could draw the
sword easily and quickly from its
sheath of the right.
Constables W. Spiller and Bill
Mathews, left Sunday for Clinton. Mr. Farmer is acting pro
tern, he carries the great responsibility very well indeed.
Entertainment
An interesting programme will
be given in the Methodist Church
on Monday October 11th at 8
p.m., consisting of patriotic music, solos, and readings. Everybody is invited to come and spend
a pleasant evening. No admission fee.
The bravest battle that ever was fought,
Shall I tell you where and when?
On the maps of the world you'ill find it
not;
'Twas fought by the mothers of men.
Nay, not with cannon, or battle shot,
With sword or nobler pen;
Nay,   not   with   the  eloquent  word   or
thought
From the mouth of wonderful men.
But deep in a walled-up woman's heart—
Of woman who would not yield,
But bravely, silently bore her part—
Lo! there is the battlefield.
No marshalling troop, no bivouac song,
No banner to gleam and wave!
But oh, these battles! They last so long—
From babyhood to the grave.
—Joaquin Miller.
Lillooet Board of
Trade
The citizens of Lillooet and
District met last Friday evening

Whyte, member of the West Vancouver Council and member of
the North Vancouver Board of

From the bedroom of the twin

loud weeping and hearty laughter, so the father went up to
investigate.
"What's the matter _p here?"
he inquired.
The joyous twin indicated his
weeping brother. "Nothing,"
he chuckied, "only nurse has given Alexander two baths and hasn't given me any."

It is most gratifying te see the
activity being displayed among
the ranchers throughout the district in an endeavour to place
the Lilloet district fruit and produce before the public, and hundreds of boxes of frnit and potatoes can be seen on the ranehes

over two hundred tons of hay.
He is highly pleased with the

Daily Province, Vancouver, B. C.
Increase British  Columbia
Prosperity
A movement to protect B.
C. products is well under
way in Vancouver, Victoria,
and New Westminster, and
is spreading throughout the
province. That these markets are in great need of protection is a matter of general knowledge and agreement.
Hon. W. E. Scott, Deputy
Minister of Agriculture, said
recently in an address before the B. C. Consumer's
League, which is behind this
movement, that $25,000,000
was sent out of the province
annually for agricultural products, and that $22,000,000
of this immense sum was
sent away for products such
as are grown here. It is estimated that at least $25,000,
000 a year leaves British Columbia for manufactured
goods of kinds made in our
own factories. This totals
an unnecessary outgo of well
over $40,000,000 yearly, to
make the figures more easilv
grasped, of about $120,000.00
a day.
Consumers are being systematically organized to give
the preference in their buying, quality and price being-
equal, to articles manufactured or grown here, so that
as much as possible of this
outgoing wealth may be retained in local circulation for
the stimulation of our own
industries and agriculture,
and thus for building up a
new prosperity in British Columbia—not a false prosperity based upon hope, but a
real prosperity based upon
production.
Affiliated with the British
Columbia Consumer's League
in this important work are
twelve of the leading public
service organizations of the
province, and under the energetic direction of Mrs. J. C.
Kemp of Vancouver, president of the League, about
six thousand consumers have
already pledged themselves
to the preferential buying of
home products.
The leagues membership
for this year is twelve thousand members.
Consumers outside the cities above mentioed are being
reached through the Women's
Institutes, Farmer's Institutes and Agricultural Associations.
Reciprocal protection of the
markets is being developed
between City and Country.
For instance, the League has
given a great deal of attention this summer to influencing Vancouver housewives to
buy; B.C. truit instead of that
which comes in large quantities from the State of Washington, and this work, in connection with that of the De
partment of Agriculture to
the same end, has resulted,
according to an official of the
government, in a saving to
B.C. growers already this
year of between $180,000 and
$200,000. Thisistheoffiical
estimate of the money which
would have gone into the
States had it not been for
the Government's and the
League's activity for local
fruits.
In numerous sections a desire has been shown to reciprocate by giving the preference to B. C. manufactured
goods, so that, while the city
markets for the orchard and
farm proucts are being built
up, the country markets for
factory products is being developed. Thus agriculture
and industry, each of which
is dependent upon the other,
are being fostered together.
It is gratifying to know that
travellers for leading local
manufacturers are now returning from the road with
statements that never before
have they seen the retailers
and consumers throughout
the province so favorable to
local goods. In this way,
through the more loyal buying of industrial as well as
agricutural products, numerous hundreds of thousands of
dollars are being kept in local circulation instead of
sent to enrich other centres.
At a meting of the directors of the League a resolution was passed that never,
either now or at any time in
the future, would the League
countenance or buy goods
made in Germany, and all
consumers were advised to
scrutinize with care for the
German label any goods suspected of coming from the
nation which started the ap-
pauling catastrophy of the
war. This resolution was
prompted by the report that
many millions of dollars in
German toys and other goods
paid for by American importers before the outbreak of
the war, have recently been
released and will be seeking
markets this winter not only
in the United States but in
Canada.
