Forest Protection in Canada
The Commission of Conservation has just issued a report on
"Forest Protection in Canada,
1913-1914, which is of particular
interest in connett'on with the
supply of pulp. It contains much
information respecting the work
of the provincial forest services
and of the federal departments
intrusted with the care of our
forests.
Forest fire protection is assuming a large place in public attention. It is obvious that, if Canada is to continue as a wood producing country, she must consere
her resources of this natural product. The report treats exhaustively of the fire protection of
forest lands along railway rights-
of-way. Through co-operative
action, great headway has been
made in securing the reduction
of forest losses through fires
traceable to railway causes.
The forests of British Columbia
arid on Dominion lands in the
West have been dealt with in reports containing the results of
special studies conducted bv Dr.
G. D. Howe and Mr. J. H. White
The Trent watershed in Ontario,
has al»o received especial attention, in a report of an investigation by Dr. Howe in .the townships of Burleigh and ^Methuen.
This district is important in that,
while of very little v&lue as an
agricutural area, it is being repeatedly overrun by forest fires
and the little remaining merchantable timber destroyed. It
is suggested that tht? area be
placed under the control of the
Dominion Forestry Branch for
protection from fires and for reforestation.- - "
It is reported that they are going to start opening the P.G.E.
next week. What do you know
about that?
It will be interesting to read
the excuses given by the Germans, Zoebel, Philippi andSelby,
whose sermons appear in another
column, when the "satanic armies" prevail and give the "pure
ones" what they have been asking for.
In a report recently submitted
to the Hon. the Minister of Land
on conditions in the Cranbrook
Forest district, mention is made
of the severity of the weather,
the snowfall in certain sections
of the country being heavier this
winter than for many years.
While this has compelled many
logging operators to snspend activities for the time being, there
is every prospect of a cut of
fifty million feet. Quite a number of ranchers throughout the
district are taking out logs, the
sawmills buying all that are offered. In the spring the Columbia River Lumber Company intend to begin logging their limits
on Bugaboo Creek. It may be
mentionad as evidence of the abnormal winter that the Forest
Service horses, which in former
years ranged in the Wild Horse
Basin, and areund the Upper Columbia. Lakes, have had to receive special attention this win-
on account of the deep snow
covering the range.
Dave Craig made a trip to Lytton this week. He took Mr. and
Mrs T. Snell, and returned the
same day with Mr. Fred Kinder
who has been on a business visit
to the coast cities. Fred, went
out by way of the P.G.E. and
got "snowed in." We wonder
whether he is kinder towards the
railway since the trip.
Tommy—I'm going to be good
and go to heaven.
Ma—That's right Tommy, but
why this sudden change?
Tommy—I don't want to meet
the Kaiser.
Gleaned
"Don't you know," observed
the Englishman, "I cawn't understand why those beastly Germans insist on spelling 'culture
with a k/"
"That," the Canadian replied,
"is very easy to, explain. They
are obliged to use a V because
the English have control of all
the seas."
The Englishman, vastly amused at this pleasantry, later attempted to repeat the joke to
his wife.
"My deah," he said, "I met
an awfully clevah fellow from
Canada to-day, He made a remark that was positively ripping!
I told him that I could not understand why the Germans spelled
'culture' with a 'k,' and what do
you think he answered? Hes>aid
it was because Britannia ruled
the waves.    Fahncy!"
A Belgian cripple stumped a-
bout Brussels declaring: " We
gave those Germans a rare hiding
before they got to Brussels." He
was hauled up before a stony-
faced circle of German officers,
who decreed: "You will be shot —
unless you become a German."
The cripple though it over, and
was sworn in as a German. The
chief German officer took him by
the hand, saying: "Your a German now."
As he left, the cripple muttered: "Those Belgians gave us a
rare hiding before- we got to
Brussels.-Tit-Bits.
It was the custom in the vilage
for the well-to-do inhabitants to
make good any loss which the
villagers might sustain through
the death of any livestock. A
retired millionaire, recently settled in the village, was ignorant
of this laudable practice, and was
considerably puzzled by the visit
of a laborer's wife, who explained that she had lost a pig.
"Well. I haven't got it." said
the bewildered millionaire.
"What I mean, sir, of course,
is that the pig died," nervously
exclaimed the woman.
"Well, what do you want me
to do?" cried the thoroughly exasperated man, 'send a wreath?"
When Henry Otto and Fred
Granville were at the Santa Cruz
Islands filming "Undine," they
caught one particular fox which
Granville named "Otto." because
it was such an artistic looking
cuss. The other day said artistic
looking cuss bit Granyille, and
now he has renamed it"Otter,"
because of its gnawing propensities and probably because it
didn't ottter do it.   S'nuff.

German Sermons
Mining Review
These are not sermons that
were delivered during the first
weeks of the war, when passion
and resentment might be expected to blaze forth in sudden heat.
They were preached just a short
time ago by leading German
preachers, and are quoted by Rev.
William Burgess in the Methodist
Times. They indicate, not sudden anger, but deliberate, determined policy. Here is a brief
quotation from a sermon preached by Pastor Zoebel in Leinsic,
"It is this deep consciousness
of our mission that permits us to
congratulate ourselves, and rest
content with a heart full of gratitude, when our guns, beat down
the children of Satan, and when
our marvellous submarines—instruments to execute the divine
vengeance -send to the bottom
of the sea thousands of the non-
elect. We must fight the wicked
with every means in our power;
their sufferings should give us
pleasure; there cries_ of despair
should not move German hearts.
There ought to be no compromise
with hell, no mercy for the servants of satan—in other words,
no pity for the English. French
and Russians, nor, indeed, any
nation that has sold itself to the
devil. Thev have all been condemned to death by a divine degree. "
And here is another quotation,
more hideous and revolting still,
taken from a sermon preached
by Pastor Fritz Philippi in Berlin:
"As the Almighty allowed His
Son to be crucified, that the
scheme of redemption might be
accomplished, so Germany is destined to crucify humanity, in order that its salvation may be secured. The human race can only
be saved by blood, by fire and
sword. It is really because we
are pure that we have been chosen by the Almighty as His instruments to punish the envious,
to chastise the wicked and to
slay with the sword sinful nations. The divine mission of
Germany, 0 bretheren! is to crucify humanity; the duty of German soldiers, therefore, is to
strike, without mercy. They
must kill, burn and destroy; any
half measure would be wicked.
Let it then be a war without pity.
The immoral and the friends and
allies of Satan must be destroyed,
as an evil plant must be uprooted. Satan himself, who has
come into the world in the form
of a great power (England),
must be crushed."
And here is still another quotation, from a sermon preached by
Prof. Rheinold Seeby, who teaches theology in the Berlin University. The sermon <was preached
in the cathedral of that city:
"We do not hate our enemies.
We obey the command of God,
who tells us to love them. But
we believe that in killing them,
in putting them to suffering, in
burning their houses, in invading
their territories, we simply perform a work of charity. Divine
love is seen'everywhere in the
world, but men have to suffer
The Preliminary Review and
Estimate of Mineral Production
of 1915, by Wm. Fleet Robertson,
Provincial Mineralogist, says:
During the season of 1915 the
Lillooet District received its first
railway connection with the seaboard, when the Pacific Great
Eastern Railway, in the early
part of the season, completed its
tracks to the town of Lillooet and
later continued its service as far
as Clinton.
Formerly, the lack of transportation facilities deterred even
the developement of the mineral
prospects which have been located adjacent to the railway, and
the mineral output' has been restricted to a limited amount of
gold, either placer or produced
by small stamp mills crushing
quartz.
The advent of the railway will,
it is expected, stimulate the prospecting for and deuelopment of
lode mines in this district, in
which, for geological reasons,
there is a probability that they
exist.
It is as yet too soon to expect
any great results from this cause,
and at present the only part of
the district in which any serious
attempt at lode-mining is being
made is on Cadwallader creek,
where, in 1914, the Coronation
milled some 120 tons of quartz,
carrying about $40 to the ton in
gold.
While this property did not
make any output in 1915, a small
force of men has been at work
developing, with, it is reported,
very satisfactory results.
Development was also carried
on at the Pioneer by Ferguson et
al., where considerable increased
ore-bodies have been proven,
equally high in grade to these
formerly known. A stamp-mill
and cyanide plant is now being
erected, and a force of men is at
work in the mine under the su-
perintendance of Charles Copp.
The Wayside has been under
development all the season by
Paxton and associates. A lot of
some 20 tons of ore was treated
in a test stamp-mill and yielded
about $16,50 to the ton.
The placer^gold output of the
district is expected to be somewhat higher than for years back,
chiefly due to the exceptionally
low water exposing bars in the
rivers, thus permitting individual
placer-miners and Indians to
work them.
for their salvation. Germany
loves other nations, and when
she punishes them it is for their
good." 	
Being natives of the country
mentioned by Fritz as represent-
ting "Satan" we refrain from
comment and leave the sermons
with our readers. But we sometimes wish that the Allies would
give the "Pure Ones" some of
their ewn diabolical prescriptions
but we have every confidence in
our "Leaders and Men" to give
them the "necessary" when the
time arrives.
Mrs. Dave Craig returned to
Lillooet this week, after an extensive visit to the Eastern cities
and was accompanied by Dave.

Lillooet War Fund
Reference was made last
week in these columns to a
highly satisfactory feature of
Sir Thomas White's war
budget, whereby the claims
of the apple growers were
recognized by provision for
an adequate measure of protection against the deadly
competition from across the
line. Another feature that
has aroused a great deal of
favorable comment is the action by which a tax of 25
per cent, is levied upon the
profits of incorporated companies in excess of 7 per ct.,
and of 10 per cent, on non-
incorporated companies. By
this means the exhorbitant
profits made under early war
contracts will be turned into
the revenue of the country,
as an excellent feature of the
tax is that it is retroactive in
its effects. The provision
made whereby the agricultural industry is exempted from
new taxation will also meet
with approval, as at a time
such as this our basic producers must receive all possible
encouragement. However
others may feel, the farmer
has good cause to find the
fullest satisfaction in .the
budget of this year.
Nobody can read the exceptionally able speech made
by the Finance Minister without coming to a better realization of the heavy burdens
which the war has laid upon
the country, and the magnificent manner in which these
obligations are being  met.
The war appropriation of '14
was $50,000,000, and that for
last year $100,000,000, while
and additional vote of $250,-
000,000  is now asked for.
Our actual war expenditures
to the end of January totalled $158,000,000, and as the
Canadian army grows from a
quarter of a million to a half
million men the outlay will
rapidly increase.  By tlie end
of the year the national debt
will be $580,000,000, and we
shall increase this by hundreds of millions of dollars
annually so long as the war
lasts.
The hopeful factor in the
situation is the strong economic position of the Dominion, which is enjoying a high
measure of prosperity, based
upon a bountiful harvest,
munition orders and some
measure of public and private
thrift. The savings of the
people steadily accumulate in
the banks, despite the heavy
call upon these deposits induced by the domestic war
loan of $100,000,000. During
the fiscal year about to close
exports increased $200,000,-
000, giving a tavorable foreign trade balance of more
than that amount as compared with an adverse balance
of $36,600,000 last year and
one of $300,000,000 in 1912-
13. Here is a change of
$500,000,000 for the better,
which no sane man would
have deemed possible a year
or two ago.
This excellent showing can
only be maintained in the
face o' continued heavy drafts
workers if those who remain
produce, earn and save all
they can. By foresight and
astute financing the Finance
Minister has got the Government into a position where it
has no outstanding Treasury
Bills in London and no overdrafts anywhere. It has in
fact comfortable balances to
its credit at home and abroad
that will carry it into the
summer—this in spite of the
fact that all war expenditures since June last have been
financed without assistance
from the Imperial Treasury.
The Finance Minister has indeed gone farther and set a-
side $5o,ooo,ooo out of the
domestic war loan as an Imperial credit for the financing
of British munition orders in
Canadian plants.
The greatest struggle that
any country such as Canada
has ever been called upon to
face is by no means over.
The fight for freedom is not
yet won, but the future is full
of promise, and the brilliant
exposition of the country's
standing made by Sir Thomas will go far to allay fears
and inspire fresh confidence
among the Canadian people.

world - dominion,   who has
waged war by methods that
have destroyed,   as  far as
Germany is concerned,  the
value of international law,
and has caused even neutral
peoples to consider how far
national existence is in peril
by this action of an outlaw
among civilized nations.
The declaration of the King,
which is expressive also of
the determination of Parliament and People of Britain,
and as well of all the Empire
and the nations allied to us,
to fight this fight to a finish
is reassuring. How enduring
and practical is the unity of
the Allies is to be seen in the
recent conferences. The calling of a general council at
Paris, which Premier Asquith
announces, is   but  another
proof that the hand of the
great nations opposing military world - domination will
not be stayed until the German people are called back
to a sense of common humanity and right andjustice.

The unity of the Allies is

says the British Columbian.
He speaks of the spirit of my
Allies and my People, who
are united in this conflict by
ever strengthening ties   of
sympathy and understanding
remaining steadfast in there-

the victims of unprovoked
and unjustifiable outrage, and
effectual safeguards for all
nations against the agression
of a power which mistakes
force tor right and expediency for honor.    The declaration of the aim and purpose
of the Allies in this great
conflict between nations will
become historic.    Eighteen
months after Germany br'gt
into action her ruthless theory
of war the great liberty-loving nations of the world are
more determined than ever
