Non Political Re-organiz-
„ationof Forest Protection Service.
Sixty Five Men Wanted as Assistant
The Forest Protection Fund
through which the timber resources of British Columbia are
protected from destruction by fire
is maintained by equal contributions from timber owners and
Jumbermen on the one hand and
Provincial Government on .the
other, tjtfhile the lumbermen contribute half the revenue of the
Forest Protection Fund they have
not, until this winter, been given
a voice in the administration of
Recently however, committees
representing the various lumbering associations conferred with
Hon. T. D. Pattello, Minister of
Lands, regarding this question,
and as a result the Minister has
established an entirely new method of handling the important
matter of protecting the provin-
tial forests from fire.
This method is of particular interest not only as regards the
Forest problem with which it
deals, but also as establishing a
non political public service under
difficult conditions. While civil
service'systems have been applied
to clerical staffs at Ottawa, it'
will be the first time in Canada
that an outside service has been
taken out of politics and placed
on a basis of busmtGo-efficiency.
Subject to the Minister of Lands,
Forest Protection work East of
the Cascades will be in charge of
a Board of five members, two of
whom will be lumbermen, selected by the Mountain Association.
The three other members will be
the Deputy Minister of Lands
(chairman), the Chief Forester
and the Forester in charge of
Forest fire prevention.
The lumber representatives appointed are as foljpws:--
C. D. McNab,  Baker Lbr.  Co.,
Waldo, B.C.
Neale Murray, Arrow Lakes Lbr.
.   Co., Kamloops, B.C.
The whole matter of fire protection hangs on the efficiency.of
the men employed. In order to
secure the best men available it
has been decided to give all possible publicity tothe fact that some
65 Assistant Rangers will be
needed to replace the 163 Forest
Guarde employed last season.
Each assistant ranger will be offered six months employment at
$100.00 per month plus expenses,
with re-engagement for six
months each year, while services
are satisfactory, and also with the
prospect of advancement on merit to the regular forest service as
occasion offers.
Applicants for these positions
are required to obtain the necessary application forms and lb
send them in to the Chief Forester, Victoria, B.C. or to the District Forester, Lillooet, B.C. for
this district.
Applicants must be British
Examiners have been selected
by the Board to hold examinations of applicants at the following places in the Lillooet Forest
District on the dates mentioned.

Commission i s contemplating
plans of economic exploitation
whereby it may become understood and recognized by the people of British Columbia that the
commission is the logical and
properly authorative body to deal
with all matters affecting the
welfare of the returned soldier.
"How often," said Mr. Hill to
a representave of the Press, "a
returned soldier will ask for advice as to who would be the best
person to see about his delayed
pension, pay or ^allowances, or
kindred matters which worry
him. We want the people of the
province to realize that this provincial returned soldiers' commission is aimed to cover all exigencies of this nature and to assist every returned B.C. man in
a wider scope than the mere obtaining of empjoyment. Whenever a returned Soldier asks such
advice he should be immediately
told by any member of the general public that there is a returned soldiers' commission in B.C.,
with headquarters at Victoria
and committees working in 78
localities throughoutthe pro'/ince.
These committees will be glad to
give advice or assistance in any
difficulties or problems which
confront returned men, and the
commission is anxious that its
powerful machinery through the
province be utilized by the returned soldier—and above all that
the general public know how to
properly refer a -man who is looking for such information.""'
National Service
One of the most vafhable of recent literary contributions to the
great cause is a booklet by Professor Stephen Leacock, Dr. Lea-
cock makes an urgent call for
national thrift and national saving. He attacks in vigorous
style the evils of extravagance at
this crisis in: Canada's history,
and by trenchant phrase and apt
illustration disposes of various
common errors in regard to individual spending of money during war time...
This pamphlet was originally
published by Dr. Leacock himself,
but the National Service Board
were so convinced of its value in
connection with their Thrift Campaign that they had it republished and have undertaken its distribution. Copies can be obtained
by writing to the Secretary of
the National Service Board at
Oitawa, or by applying to the
National Service Director in any

Disasterous Fire at Hope
Hope, B.C. March 6—Eight and
possibly ten persons lost their
lives in a fire which destroyed
the Coquahalla Hotel here this
morning. Some twenty-five or
thirty other guests only escaped
in their night clothes. The known
dead are:
Tom Wilson, Vancouver, provincial fruit pest inspector. •
Tom Taylor, lumberman, Vancouver.
Tom Kehoe, lumberman, Vancouver.
Bert Ready, miner, Hope.
Bill McKeever, miner Hope.
Bob Campbell, miner, Hope.
George Atkins, Kettle Valley
Railway, Hope.
Un unidentified Serbian.
The fire, which apparently
broke out in bhe office on the
ground floor, started at 3.30.
Smoke in the rooms aroused the
guests, and those who escaped
made their way out of the building with •difficulty. The men
who perished were evidently suf-
socajted in their rooms or were
trapped by the flames before
they could make their way out.
Several women had narrow escapes, being rescued by ladders.
One lady was saved by Mr. W,

though the absence of wind made
it possible to save the annex. A

worth of logging supplies and
groceries. A Chinese restaurant
and store east of the hotel, owned by J. Pennie of the West Yale
review, was also destroyed. A.

hard work.
Keeble & Palmer, proprietors
of the hotel, lost some $2,000
worth of stock and personal effects. They carried no insurance.

it fell into the Abasement, and its

MARCH 9.  1917.
"war, while on the walls there
would be recorded in bronze
the names and deeds of our
departed heroes. -^
At first sight it would
seem that the determination
of the new B.C. government
to deed the old court hous'e
site in Vancouver to the citizens of that city was an unfair disposition of potential
real estate resources. That
well known spot in Vancouver where formerly the decrees of justice were pro-
' mulgated is worth a -good
'many sections of land out in
the open country. Real estate in the heart of the principal city of the province is
worth a good many dollars
per front foot. If skyscrapers were built on if it would
produce a large income. Why
should advantage not be taken of such a source of income
.which plainly belongs in a
measure to the entire province?
This question is like that
asked by certain people at a
banquet a good many years
ago, about an alabasta box
i  of ointment.   They wanted
to know why the precious
spikenard was not sold for
three hundred pence and given to the poor?  ^The answer
was that it had been determined by the doner to devote
it to a high and holy purpose.
The same answer might be
returned to those who question the desirability of allocating the old Court house
site to remain for ever as a
beautiful garden in which a
memorial will be erected to
our  lamented   heroes   who
have fallen in Europe in de«l
fence of our lives and liberties.   Those vailiant  men
came from ail over the province,   i Where  could  their
memory be better kept green
than in its principal city,   ln
no place could it he so likely
to be seen by the inhabitants
of tke province.   Nearly
everybody at some time or
other  goes  to   Vancouver.
The present is an  age  of
transportation, of railways,
of  excursions.   Grant  that
the object is a good one, and
there can be no doubt that
the place chosen is the best
for the'purpose that could be
selected.   It is in every way
'suited to the project.   It is
surrounded by maples that
were planted there about
thirty years ago, and which
now  give  distinction and
beauty  to  the spot.   It is
suggested that in a central
position on this spot a dignified stone building of  one
story should be erected whose
pillared front would at once
attract the passer by.   Within would be a museum of interesting memorial's of the
After a nine months interval the parliament buildings
at' Victoria are again the
scene of legislative activity.
The new government is in
the saddle and indications are
that the session will be a
busy one.
The speech from the Throne
is an unusually long document. It shadows forth an
amount of work which will
keep the House engaged late
and early. It is plain that
there will be little time to be
fritted away on minor matters, especially will there be
but small opportunity for
personal recrimination of for
the attempt to gather up
spilt milk. There is altogether too much to do, to
allow of that * unprofitable
business being indulged in.
Let our legislators get down
to business and. show us that
they are worth their salt as
well as their monthly indemnity.
•With a depleted treasury
an increase of taxation be-
bomes an imperative necessity. There is no avoiding it.
The predecessor of the present government dug a deep
hole in our financial possibilities. That hole has got
to be filled up. In addition
to this there, loom into view
pressing claims for expenditure. Consequently we must
grin and%bear it. Money
must be found.
Whatever is determined
with reference to the affairs
of the Pacific Great Eastern,
it is satisfactory to know
that, according to the
Speech, a full enquiry will
be made. That enquiry
jshould prove very instructive.
Among the most important
passages in the Speech, are
those which refer to agricuU
ture and to the aid that is to
be afforded to veterans in
the way of settlement and
employment. Regret is expressed that the agricultural
production within the province is still in a very unsatisfactory condition, and there
will no doubt be an earnest
attempt on the part of the
Agricultural Department, under the superintendence of
Hon. John Oliver, who is a
practical man, to improve
the state of affairs.
Scarcely less important is
the subject of mining. There
is a chance for progress in
this direction such as never
before occurred in the history
of British Columbia. The
prices of metals are high,
and we have got the metals.
The fact that our metalliferous riches are. still in the
earth where they have been
for many thousands of years, I
seems to point to a demand
for vigorous action by those
who understand the situation. With Hon. W. Sloan
at the head of this department of administration, there
should be something doing
in short order.
