Range Days at Vancouver
Exhibition
LOCAL AND GENERAL ITEMS.
An eight-day series of thrilling
contests where riders of the
range meet to compete with each
other in the various sports which
go to pro^e the cowboys' skill.
"Range Days, "is not a circus
or a horse show nor a small town
event, but a provincial affair,
surpassing in elements that entertain; in picturesqueness of
contest, anything of a like nature
ever produced in British Columbia,
The Spanish and Mexican bull
fights were long regarded as the
acme of spectacles that thrill,
but the cowboy scorns to arm
himself in contests against untamed animals.
Whether it is a long-horned,
wildeyed steer or the most vicious
"outlaw" horse, he wants neither lance nor spear in the contest,
but is content to pit his fortunes
on strength, skill and alertness,
qualities developed by the clean
vitualizing life he leads.
"Range Days" contestants use
no devices whatever to induce
horses to buck. Horses are not
taught to buck, but do so either
through an unconquerable disposition or because they have been
spoiled in the breaking.
These animals take del'ght in
showing their mastery over human beings and become more
proficient in dislodging "riders"
the longer they are used.
There will be nothing shown in
the "Range Days" exhibit during
Vancouver Fair which would offend the most humane person,
and all those who attend will
witness a thrilling series of contests free from all objectionable
features.
Purses aggregating several
thousand dollars are "hung up"
as prizes in the numerous events,
and upon the winners will be conferred the titles of Provincial
Championship.
Contemplated participants are
cordially invited to come and
"get'em."

time, was sent to Ashcroft to be

He was buried at the Gang
Ranch.

Montreal, June 22—Mr. Justice
Dunlop, in the admiralty court
here today, with the consent of
both parties, ordered the sale by
auction of the collier Storstad,
which rammed and sank the Empress of Ireland near Father
Point on May 29,
This follows the seizure of the
vessel on her arrival here on
June 1 at the instance of the
Canadian Pacific railway owners
of the Empress boat.
One important fact came out
today, and that was that the
first officer, who was in charge
of the collier immediately before
the collision, was not told by the
third officer, that he had put the
helm hard aport when the ship
failed to respond to the port helm
order—Sun.
Inspect Forest Lands
In order to make an inspection
of the fire protection system and
also to estimate the forest wealth
to be opened up by the building
of the Pacific Great Eastern Railway, Mr. R. E. Benedict, of the
forest branch at Victoria, accompanied by Timber Inspector Geo.
D. McKay, passed through town.
They came in by way of Newport to Lillooet, returning by way
of the C.P.R.
No practical estimate has yet
been made of the timber areas
and of the agricultural land which
will be opened up by the P. G. E.
in its coast section, but the figures are said to be considerable,
and will give the public an idea
of the wealth which will be liberated by the building of the railway. THE PROSPECTOR

A. E. Ludwig, Manager.
JUNE 26.   1914.
The movement for celebrating
the Hundred Years of Peace between the British Empire and
the United States is, judging
by p. circular just issued by the
Canadian Peace Centenary Association taking rapid hold in
Canada, Great Britain and the
United States.
The general proposals contain
four main features, (1) Monuments and other memorials, (2)
Thanksgiving services in the
churches, (3) Educational Propaganda, (4) Festivities.
The circular enumerates various suggestions regarding the
erection of monuments, and states
that the matter has been referred to an International committee.
February 14, 1915, has been selected for Thanksgiving1 fervices
in all the churches of the British
Empire and the United States.
This date is the nearest Sunday
to February 17, 1915, the centenary of the ratification of the
Treaty of Ghent.
The educational propaganda
includes several important features fimonp; which may be mentioned the preparation of a series
of pamphlets dealing with the
various treaties which have made
the long peace possible, which it
is intended to send to all the
schools in Canada. Taleaux and
masques are in course of preparation which will also he sent to
the schools for production upon
a date to be hereafter arranged.
A somewhat unique proposal is
that schools in Canada and the
United States in places bearing
the same name should be invited
to exchange shields. It is intended to arrange for the writing
of competiti ve essays on Anclo-
American relations and provision
is being made for Tro-incial and
Dominion prizes.
' About one hundred centres
have chosen for special celebrations in Canada and strong local
committees have been arranged
for in a majority of these.
The circular also reports the
progress made in Great Eritain
and the United States and contains replies received last Christmas from World Rulers to a message sent in connection with the
celebration by i he American Committee.
The Dominion Government has
arranged for an appropriation to
meet the preliminary organization
expenses. In announcing this
the Right Hon. R. L. Borden
said: "The cause which the Canadian Peace Centenary Association
and the corresponding bodies in
the United States have set before
them is one with which we are
warmly sympathetic. It is a
triumph of humanity that during
a century of rapid development,
despite the existance of serious
international differences and problems, the British Empire and
the United States have found
wiser and more humane methods
of adjusting differences than the
arbitrament of war. We welcome the achievement of a century of peace, and hope that it
will prove to be but the first century of peace the forerunner of
a long series stretching into the
future as far as human anticipation can trust itself.
President of the Association
is Sir Edmund Walker, of Toronto, and the Hon.-Secretary Major
Hamilton of Ottawa.
