Protection to Apple Growers
Church Services
Gleaned
The increased import duty on apples
which has been announced by the Minister of Finance has come at an opportune time, state those who are in close
touch with the apple-growing industry
in the province. From the Okanagan,
the Vernon News expresses the view
that with this assurance of a reasonable
measure of protection to the industry,
the prospects for a successful season in
that great orchard country should be of
the most hopeful nature. The 90 cents
import on appl s per barrel, means 30
cents a box, as compared with 13 1-2
cents under the pre-war tariff, which
added 7 1-2 per cent, as an ad valorem
war duty. This protection to the industry, basic for the Okanagan, and in
process of developement in the province
generally is particularly necessary at
the present time owing to the tendency
of tne Washington fruit-growers to use
the coast and the prairie markets of the
province as dumping grounds for their
surplus products, a surplus that is yearly increasing, the prospects being that
the apnle crop in Washington and Oregon will greatly in excess of that of any
previous year. The memi r j.ndum prepared by the Fruit-growers' Association
for presentation to the federal economic commission emphasized the feature
of the prairie markets, it being declared that the American quotations absolutely set the market for British Columbia apples, and that this compet'itien is
not of the ordinary, but is of a most
unfair and destructive character. The
great over production in the American
coast states has resulted in the marketing of apples by the growers south of
the line at prices much under the cost
of production, and it is predicted that
this liquidation process will continue.
In such circumstances if the apple-
growing industry of British.Columbia,
in which it has been estimated, $30,-
000,000 has been invested, there beinc
30,000 acres of orchard lands, 40 per
cent, of which are now bearing, is to
be saved from ruinous competition, the
additional protection was certainly
needed, and those who have at heart
the agricultural interests of the province w'ill be appreciative of the Ottawa
decision and eongratul^r^ the Fruitgrowers' A33octation on the success of
' their representations to the govern-
mant.   Columbian.

wearing his clothes out that way
Boy—We are only playing, pa.

A Little Patriot
Say Mister, I want to be took
For a photo to send to my dad;
He's gone to the war and he'll look
For a picture of bis little lad.
I know that my daddy is lonesome;
He's only got muzzer and me;
To just let him know how we loves him
I'll send him my picture, you see.
I'm five, but please make it look older,
And brave, as a little boy should,
Whose daddy is gone for a soldier,
An_ tell him I try to be good.
I am always his own little laddie,
Taking care of dear muzzer so fine;
And I pray every night for my daddy
Away out on that bad battle line.
I'll know when I'm older and wiser—
(I'm too little just yet, don't you
see) —
Why daddy must fight the old Kaiser,
For country, home, mother and me.
I'll send it when muzzer is writing,
And give my.best love to my sweet.
Say, Mister, when my dad is fighting
The Kaiser is sure to get beat !

Nurse—"Now is there any thing
else 1 can do for you?"
Tommy (with vinegar cloth on
head, salt bag on chest and mustard plaster on feet)— "Well,
Nurse, you might just put a pepper plaster on my back, and then
I shall be a bloomiri' cruet."
First Frau—My poor boy Fritz
is having a dreadful time. He is
with the army against Russia.
Second Frau—And what about
your other boy. Hans?
First Frau-Oh, HE'S all right;
he's in the navy.
When the Highlanders (in kilts)
first went to the front the natives couldn't make out what
they were. One said: "It isn't
a man—it has peticoats!" Another said: "It isn't a woman-it
has whiskers!" Finally one exclaimed: "The Engljsh have a
regiment called the Middlesex
and no doubt this is it!"—Ex.
An elderly lady on her first
railway trip noticed the communication cord overhead, and was
told by a mischie/ous boy that it
was to ring when she wanted
anything to eat. Shortly afterwards the old lady reached up
with her umbrella and gave it a
vigorous pull. The whistle sounded, the breaks were put together
sharply in the driver's efforts to
stop. Presently the Con came
rushing along and asked: "Who
pulled that cord?" "I did," replied the old lady meekly." Well,
what do you want?" snapped the
official impatiently. "You may
bring me some ham sandwhiches
and a cup of tea if you will.
It is not recorded what the Con
said or did and a veil is drawn
over the boy.
The regular annual meeting of
the B.C. Entomological Society
will be held in Victoria, on March
11. A number of interesting papers will be read. R. C. Tre-
herne, field officer of this branch
of th Dominion Department of
Agriculture, Experimental farm,
Agassiz, is the secretary of the
society.
D. J. G. Rutherford, supperin-
tendent of the Agricultural
branch of Animal Husbandry of
the C.P.R- Department of Natural Resources, Calgary, will be
one of the principal speakers at
the B.C. Stockbreeders' Convention which will be held in Victoria on March 13 and 14. Dean
Klinck. of the Agricultural College, of the University of British
Columbia and Dr. S. F. To.nline,
B.C. Representative of the Health
of Animals Branch, Dominion
Dept. of Agriculture will also address the convention.
The Mountain Lumber Manufacturers' Association has transmitted to the Hon. W. R. Ross a
copy of a resolution passed at the
recent joint meeting held at Calgary between the lumber manufacturers of Western Canada and
the Western Lumber Retailers'
Association. With reference to
the market extension work carried on by the department, the
meeting resolved: "That the people of the West owe a debt of
gratitude to the officials of the
Forestry Department of British
Columbia for their efforts in inaugurating more effective and
modern methods of assisting the
farmers of the West to give preference to Canadian products,
and rendering more' efficient the
soryice between producers and
consumers."
Many requests have been received by the Department of
Agriculture at Victoria for plans
and specifications as well as advice on the building of silos, because wide-awake farmers are
alive to the fact that the silo is
one of the best paying investments ever made on the farm.
Silage when properly prepared
is the best substitute for feed
when pasture is not available.
Many silos have been built under
the direction of the Department
throughout the province, and to
provide more acurate information for the farmer contemplating the erection of such a building, the department has just had
published, Bulletin No. 66, entitled Silos and Silage which will
bring to the farmer in a comprehensive form the many details so
necessary in deciding what type
to build.
This bulletin is just off the
press and farmers who desire a
copy should write to the Department and one will be mailed,
post free.
[from Vernon Newt]
Mr. Bonar Law is a statesman,
says the Toronto Globe, who has
always been noted for earnest-
nest and plain speaking, rather
than for saying complimentary
things to please any class of persons. As Colonial Secretary he
was present at the opening of
the Ontario Hospital at Orpington, near London, and he said
some things about Canadians
that were quite as true as they
were complimentary. By far the
most notable was this:
"When we speak of the loyalty
of the colonies we in this country
must make no mistake. It is no
more the loyalty of Canada to
the United Kingdom than it is
the United Kingdom's own loyalty. Her loyalty to Canada is loyalty to the Empire of which she
is a part quite as m«ch as the
United Kingdom itself."
The profound significance of
this remark is apt to be overlooked because of its simplicity
and felicity. The Secretary of
State for the Colonies is a member of the British Ministry, but
he recognizes that "The British
Dominions beyond the seas" to
use the precise words of the
King's title, are as essentially
parts of the British Empire, as
is ' 'The United Kingdom of Great
Britain and Ireland," which terms
are also part of the King's title.
Mr. Law is wisely and necessarily vague when he speaks of
the changes that are sure to take
place in the constitution of the
Empire as the result of this great
war, and of the trials and sacrifices the British people all over
the Empire have been making to
secure ultimate victory and enduring peace; but he is right in
the expression of his opinion that
"the war has brought home more
clearly to us all the realization of
the close bonds which bind the
Empire together." He is right
in his affirmation that "our enemies looked upon the Dominions
as weaknesses of the Mother
Country, but they know better
now. The full significance of
this remark will be felt increasingly with the passing years. As
the "Dominions" of Australia,
South Africa, and Canada grow
stronger, not to speak of the
more stationary Newfoundland
and New Zealand, or the numerous Crown Colonies, they will
prove a source of influence in
peace and of strength in war that
will make any foe, however much
inclined to challenge the Empire,
hesitate to provoke a contest.
The Kaslo Women's Institute
has just issued an attractive 40-
page cook book which contains
about 200 recipes, that have
been found to be all the members
vouch for them. This Institute
is one of the most actractive in
the province and its work in canning fruits has brought an enviable name to Kaslo. The products
of the Jam Factory, conducted
by the Institute, are in demand
by the people of the upper country and now the women of the
Province may make the many
pies, cakes, puddings, soups,
meats, candy, preserves, cookies
and biscuits, and other tempting
dishes from the recipes which
have brought renown to this
Kootenay district. THE PROSPECTOR

The West Coast lumber
manufacturers have recently
filed a brief with the Federal
Trade Commission on behalf
of American mills. The
greater part of this brief
deals with the competition
of British Columbia in the
United States shingle market
and the co-operation between
Government and lumbering
industry in this province.
"There is no question''
says the brief "as to the B.C.
Governmental policy toward
the industry. It appears in
every law and every Act. The
attitude of the forest branch
is best expressed by one of its
representatives, when he
said: "It is our business to
help the industry in every
possible way. We are practically in partnership with it"
This extends not only to exports but to domestic trade
as well. The entire subject
is handled methodically and
intelligently with the fixed
and definite purpose of furthering and fostering the industry in every way possible.
The emphasis laid upon the
close connection between the
Government of the Province
and the lumbering industry
is, of course, intended to stir-
up the United States Government to similar efforts; but
as this connection is unique
in its way it may be of interest to the readers of the
Western Lumberman to know
just how it has come about.
The matter dates back to
the timber boom that was
raging up and down the far
West in the first few years
of the present century. Up
to that time comparatively
little had been done with
British Columbia's enormous
forest areas for they were
not open for sale and the taking up of timber leases had
not appeared an attractive
investment. The province
needed revenue for road construction and public works
and yet the forests were not
producing half a million dollars a year. So when the demand for Western timber became so vigorous in 1905,
the Provincial Government
threw open all timber lands
for staking; with the'result
that by the end of 1907 eight
and a half million acres were
under license and a revenue
of $2,000,000 a year was being secured.
The unusual feature of this
new method of handling public lands was that the Gov-

ernment did not definitely
state how much rental per
acre would be charged for
the timber, nor how much
would have to be paid as a
royalty per thousand feet
when logs were cut. In other words the timber was sold
by the government without
the price being fixed; the idea
being that as British Columbia timber increased in value
the Government should get
its proper share of the increase. As a beginning the
charges levied were a yearly
rental of 22 cents an acre on
the coast and 15 cents in the
mountain country; with fifty
cents a thousand feet (board
measure) on logs by way of
royalty. The yearly rental
gave the province a regular
income; while the heavy end
of the price being on cut logs
made it that much easier for
sawmill companies to finance
until they, were using the
timber and realizing on their
investment.
After some years, however, another factor began to
call for serious attention. The
sawmill industry had grown
enormously between 1907-13;
there had come to be no less
than 400 sawmills With an
agregate capacity of 2,500,-
000.000 feet a year in British
Columbia and the financing
of large timber holdings required something more definite in the way of titles than
timber licenses which left it
an open matter how much
the Government would charge
for the timber. In other
words the licencees called for
the terms of their partnership with the Government to
to be fixed, and as this would
give greater stability to the
lumbering industry, and so
be in the public interest, it
was up to the Government to
find a way of doing this without losing the public's share
on the future increase in timber values.
The upshot was the Timber
Royalty Act passed two years
ago, which fixed the price of
Crown timber on a sliding
scale based on the price of
lumber, and so settled the
whole question with fairness
to both sides. Hereafter,
whenever the wholesale price
of lumber in the Province
goes above a certain figure
the Government price for
timber goes up too, automatically; the matter being thus
lifted out of politics. This
legislation is nothing more
or less than a deed of partnership between the Government, as trustees of the public timber, and the lumbering
industry that cuts, manufactures and sells the lumber.
It is plain therefore that the
Government has a direct interest in the successful marketing of British Columbia
lumber.
The Government's direct
interest in the lumbering industry, however, is not con-

fined to a three million dollar
revenue which will increase
to four or five millions as time
goes on and the industry de-
velopes. The lumbering industry is British Columbia's
industrial backbone: forest
industries even now put thirty million dollars or so a year
into circulation; and, watching over the province's prosperity, the Government must
therefore do everything it
can to make sure that lumbering is carried on successfully. Morover, the better
the market for B.C. lumber
the less waste there will be
in lumbering, and this means
that better treatment of the
forests will become commercially possible, which is another object aimed at.
For some years past the
Government and lumbermen
have worked together in protecting the forests from fire
—each side paying half the
cost each year. Now this
partnership work has been
extended to the marketing of
lumber. On behalf of the
industry the Government itself tenders for cargo orders
in the export market, guarantees inspection, advertises
B.C. lumber and acts as a go-
between to work up foreign
business. In the Eastern
Canadian market the same
work in being undertaken. In
the Prairie provinces the first
step in helping the marketing
of B. C. lumber has been taken by making it easier for
users to erect farm buildings
through the widespread distribution of building plans
and information useful to the
farmer. The establishment
of a Government lumber
Commissioner's office at Re-
gina is another step marking
the beginning of a thoroughly progressive movement on
behalf of British Columbia
lumber.—Western Lumberman.
