THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3, 1909
One Dollar Per Annum
In a short but pointed letter
lisrepresent-    to Thursday morning's Col-
||ig Victoria,     onist,   Major  Dupont protests against the methods oi;
[ certaiu person who is at present airing
Sis views on politieal matters and religious
H_e.ories every night in the Victoria Times.
I i'he Major more particularly objects to a
■Matement made in one of these extraor-
■ linary epistles to the effect that it was
Impossible to go for a day and a night in
'ictoria without seeing men in all stages
■J/'f intoxication.   And the Major wants to
Ifnow where the  writer of those letters
bends his days and nights.    The Week
i'ould like to- know tliat too, though it
vould not care to poke its nose too closely
■into-the matter.    We have a delicacy on
[■feoine subjects.     But the Major's protest
against tlie consistent policy of misrepre-
Ijientation of Victoria which is indulged in
hy the so-called "reformers" is very justifiable. Victoria is not a city of white-robed
Juigels.   She is just a plain, busy, thriving,
Seaport town, with a large and cosmopolitan population.   But we say, and we are
Jin a position to prove it, that she is the
|b,est conducted and most orderly sea-port
||town on the American continent today, bar
fuone.    The person who is writing nocturnal lamentations in the Times was once,
Jjlhrough a mistaken estimate of his public
■''.character on the part of the electorate, en-
|i;U'usled with an important public position
lin this city, with most deplorable results
ito Victoria's credit and prosperity at homo
I and abroad.    Tlie people have come to
I their senses now, and have fully realized
rblie damage it does to a town to have irre-
jspousible office-hunters attempting to make
■a reputation for themselves and secure the
'•popular vote by representing from press
and platform that they are the only upright and intelligent men in a community
of criminals and lunatics.    There is no
fear of  this  class  of  "reformer"   ever
getting   in   control   again  of  Victoria's
municipal affairs.
1 G. T. P. in
Victoria.
One more gratifying indication of the rapid progress of
Victoria is the fact that during the past week surveyors
have been busy taking soundings off the
shore and running survey lines on that
section of Wharf Street facing on the
inner harbour which is owned by the 0.
T. P. This may or may not portend the
erection at an early date of wharves and
steamship offices for the Company at this
spot, but the chances are that it does. The
Victoria of today is not the Victoria of
three years ago. She had then a population of 25,000 people; today her population is -15,000 and growing rapidly at
that. Advanced though the season is,
there is no slackening in the rush of building operations, and, most important of all
,. to the growth and prosperity of the town,
1 the fertile lands outside the City limits are
filling up rapidly with an energetic and
industrious agricultural community. The
trade of such a town is of too important
dimensions to be neglected by transportation companies, and the G. T. P. is doubtless quite as wide awake to the fact as
any of the other companies who are increasing their traffic facilities with Vancouver Island and making new ones. Besides, big as this trade already is, it is
growing at a tremendous rate, and in an
other twelve months will havc assumed
very large proportions indeed. The construction of office ancl wharfage facilities
is a matter that, from the building point
of view alone, takes some time, and the
O. T. P. authorities are well advised if
their intentions are to get ready to take
their share of the handling of Victoria's
commerce at an early a date as possible.
New
Liners,
The Week is informed upon
creditable authority that the
company operating thc well
known Blue Funnel Liners
have at present under construction in their
British ship-yards two enormous new boats
intended for the carriage of both passengers and freight, but principally passen-
gerss. Hitherto this company has con-
lined its attention solely to freight, and
the uew step is one of great significance.
The route of the new vessels, according
to our information, will constitute a regular round-the-world service touching at,
European, African, Indian, Chinese and
Japanese, Australian, New Zealand and
Canadian ports. Of much local interest
and significance is the additional fact that
these new liners will make Victoria a
regular port of call. We are certainly
growing'.
returned to power. Their record since they
assumed the reins of office in 1903 has
been a magnificent one, and productive of
great prosperity and advancement throughout the Province. Their task has not been
an easy one, for they had to rectify the
mistakes of incompetent predecessors, but
the work has been very thoroughly done.
They have earned the confidence of the
people of this Province, and the confidence
of the outside world of investment and
finance. They will have their sure and
certain reward when fhe voters mark their
ballots.
Steel
Works.
Speaking of elections, we.
Do It Now.      would  like  to  remind  our
readers that Monday next,
the 4th inst., is the last day for getting
your name on the voters' list. Call around
at the Conservative rooms at 1208 Government Street and find out if your name is
on the list. An advertisement calling your
attention to this appears on page six of
this issue. Don't forget to attend to it.
If you do, and your name isn't on the list,
you will feel as lonesome when election
time comes round as a lady wearing a last
year's hat at a fashionable garden party.
Thc people of Victoria are
watching with close attention the negotiations which
have been proceeding this
week between a special committee of the
City Council, consisting of Messrs. Turner, Stewart and Raymond, and Mr. Gibson Arnoldi, representing the Irondale
Steel Company, with reference to the
company's desire to secure a suitable site
adjacent to Victoria for the establishment
of a steel plant. If these negotiations can
be brought to a successful conclusion and
an industry of such magnitude, and employing so large a number of men, can be
located here, the effect on Victoria's future
will be simply incalculable. One of the
principal difficulties confronting the negotiators, as we write, is that of securing the
extensive area of land required by the company. This amounts to uo less than three
hundred acres, with adequate waterfront
facilities. The subject is a difficult as well
as an important one, but it is satisfactory
to know that the interests of the city are
being looked after by three of the most
cajiable men on the Council Board. The
Week, in common with every progressive
citizen of Victoria, earnestly hopes that
these negotiations will be crowned with
success, and the Capital City of the Province take ber proper place among the
leading industrial centres.
attained by a bullet fired from one of
these weapons is such that the slightest
may cause it to deflect whilst still travelling at a tremendous rate of speed and
ea])able of going a great distance. Most
of the so-called sporting rifles which are
being carried about in the woods today are
perfectly capable of killing a man three
miles away from the shooter. They ave
perfectly unnecessary in a country like
Vancouver Island, or any bush country at
all, and their use ought to be prohibited
by law. lt surely is not too much to ask
every man possessing such a weapon to exercise the utmost care before discharging
the same to make sure that there is no possibility of any human being coming within
the limits of the bullet's utmost effective
range. I f you are not sure of that, do not
fire at all. It is better to come home with
many empty bags than with one dead
friend.
Arts and
Crafts.
It is a singular fact that,
Political when the autumn leaves be-
Rumblings.       gjn to fall, the thoughts of
men turn towards elections,
with the same unfailing regularity with
which, in tbe spring of the year, the young
person of the male sex hunts up a new
list of best girls for the season. At. the
present moment, for no very definite or
special reason, the air is full of rumours
of an approaching election. Onr morning
and evening daily contemporaries are talking to teach other in a most improper way,
vague hints are reported to have been
dropped by various public men and are
being enlarged upon by men who are not
quite so public but would like to be, and,
most ominous sign of all, John Oliver is
sliding around the Province with the same
feverish activity—but not the noiseless-
ness—of a lump of butter on a hot plate.
The Week has no information, accurate
or otherwise, to contribute to the existing
state of things. This much is certain, if
there is any Provincial election pending,
it is more than likely that its principal
issue will be somethng very important connected with railways. Tliere is one other
thing that is very certain, and that is that
the present Provincial Government will be

Victim. shooting season had opened
''accident" had already occurred, and, as we, write, a promising
young man of this city is lying at the
point of death, with very slight chances
of recovery, as the result of another man's
carelessness. The Week desires to say
nothing which will add to the pain which
the man responsible for this distressing
occurrence must be feeling, but it would
be doing less than its duty if it refrained
from commenting on the obvious carelessness which alone could have rendered that
occurrence possible. Xo fire arm, and
least of all a modern rifle, should be discharged towards any point where it is possible either to directly hit some object
that may be damaged, or where it is possible for the bullet, by glancing, to inflict
such damage on a* person or animal on
either side of the line of fire. The fact, is
that, while lots of people possess rifles, very
few people understand them; and more
especially do very few people understand
what the modern rifle, with its high pressure powders, and its steel or nickel-plated
bullet, is capable of doing.    The velocity
.Much interest attaches to
the proposed formation of a
Society of Fine Arts in
Victoria. The time is ripe
for the existence of such an institution, the
effects of which are not merely beneficial
in a local sense, but tend to results of great
value in advertising many points of advantage connected with the City and district. A very representative meeting was
held on Wednesday last at the residence of
Mr. and Mrs. C. Hampfylde Daniell, when
a large number of Victorians, prominent
in artistic circles, were present, and the
unanimous resolution was passed to form
a society to be called the Vancouver Island
Society of Arts and Crafts. Mrs. C.
Bampfylde Daniell was elected Honorary
Secretary and it is proposed to call a more
extensive meeting at. an early date, when
all particulars regarding the new organization will be fully gone into. The Week
trusts that the new society will receive a
full measure of public support, and indeed,
in a city possessing—as was plainly shown
by the magnificent exhibits displayed to
the public at the fair last week—so high
a percentage of artistic talent in all lines,
tliere is little fear of its being otherwise.

C.P.H., looking towards the acquisition of
a possible suitable location in the E. & N.
Railway belt for a large number of settlers
whom the army proposes to bring out from
England, will result satisfactorily. Vancouver Island can do very well with the
kind of settler the Salvation Army generally brings out. A very large quantity of
these were brought out last year and
settled in numerous points throughout the
upper and lower mainland. Wc do not
recall a single instance of any of these
people turning out unsatisfactory, which is
a very strong point as showing the careful
selection made by the Salvation Army officers of the kind of people they bring out.
For English people the climate of Vancouver Island is most suitable. THE WEEK, SATURDAY, OCTOBER 2,  1909

*
By THE LOUNQER
Xf,J_r^^*^V'»^**Y-*'^_f>i!_.
I lounged over to Esquimalt on
Tuesday night last, and, from a selected point of vantage, was an interested witness of the attack on the
fortifications and the successful defence of the same. Much creditable
zeal in the mimic warfare was shown
by both officers and men of all
grades, and I for one hope to see
frequent repetitions of the same sort
of thing. It is the fashion, I regret
to say, among not a few. to sneer at
these sham fights as being a waste of
time, ammunition, and the tax-payers' money. I beg to emphatically
disagree. This kind of military exercise, so different in all its surroundings and circumstances from the set
and measured programme of the parade-ground, serves a very useful purpose, in that, barring actual casualties and the rich, ripe, red blood referred to in a popular advertisement,
the conditions obtaining are very
much those which would be found
in actual warfare. It is only a step
from play to earnest in most games,
but the man who has never played at
out-of-door soldiering is going to
make a pretty poor fist of it when
the ball cartridge is served out. I
do more lounging now than drilling,
but I have done my full share of the
latter in my time, and hold the opinion, in common with many others of
far greater wisdom and experience in
military matters than I possess, that
it would be well if the men of the
Canadian Militia were more frequently exercised   in the practical    rough
side of their honourable profession.
* *     *
Speaking of military matters naturally reminds me of flags, and I should
like to express my hearty disgust at
the idiotic exploit of the foolish
youngsters wdio mishandled last Sunday morning the flags which flies over
the American Consulate. The incident
has been a good deal commented on
in tbe local and provincial press, and
I observe with particular regret that
the Vancouver papers have chosen to
regard it as a just ground for reading
the people of Victoria a severe lesson on the subject of our bad manners. Now, just please fancy anybody
on earth being in such a position that
a Vancouver newspaper could lecture
them on good manners. It makes
me hot all over when I think of it.
And this is what we have been exposed to by the foolishness of a few
silly, overgrown babies.

Lounging over the James Bay
Causeway this week, I was pleased
to notice that thc sidewalk on the
seaward side is at last nearing completion. It is late, very late, but better late than never. Moreover, it is
pleasing to note that the sidewalk
swings round into Belleville street
towards the C. P. R. wharf with a
gracious curve, instead of the old-time
right-angle turning. This will be a
great convenience to those gentlemen
who, going on board a boat late at
night, after celebrating the discovery
of the North Pole, will find the sidewalk naturally adapted to what may
be called the circular method of pio
gression natural to persons in their
condition.

1 hear a lot about mines on thc
streets these days, and it sounds quite
like old times. Especially frequent of
mention is the Portland Canal Mining
Camp, in two of the principal companies of which, the Portland Canal
Mining Company and the Stewart
Mining and Development Company,
a large number of Victorians hold
shares. The day before yesterday 1

ore from thc latter company's property, which is named, by the way.

borders. This tract is some 15,000
acres in extent and forms the watershed between the streams flowing into Lake Ontario directly and those
running into the Trent river. The
soil is almost pure sand. A fine crop
of pine originally covered the area,
ancl after it was taken off the land
was for some years farmed with fair
success. But the fertility of the soil
has steadily diminished and today not
many farmers are left on the ridge.
Many farms have been deserted ancl
areas of "blow" sand have been formed, sand from which is in some cases
drifting on, and covering up good soil
on adjoining farms. The streams
throughout the; area, too, are torrents
in spring-time, but in late summer ancl
autumn their beds are almost dry—
the usual result of cutting away the
forests at the head-waters of streams.
Though almost useless for farming now, thc land will grow line timber. Originally it was covered with
a fine growth of pine, ancl large
stumps still remain to show thc size
the timber attained. Fine young timber may be se^n at various places in
the area. At one place in Durham
county, moreover, a plantation of
young white pine was made some four
years ago, and this has developed into
a thrifty young crop of timber.
The land can, it is thought, be
bought at an average price of five
dollars per acre. If the land is
bought at this figure and planted with
pine at a cost, for plants and planting, of ten dollars per acre, the cost
per acre of thc planted area would,
at the end of sixty years amount to
about a hundred and sixty-five dollars. The figure given for plans ancl
planting is a liberal one, and the final
cost given (i.e., $165) would include
adequate charges for management ancl
protection, as well as an allowance
for taxes at 17 mills on the dollar.
(Money is assumed to be worth three
and a half per cent, per annum.)
The pine timber standing on the
acre of ground would be worth, even
at prices now prevailing, six hundred
dollars. In other words, not only
would the investment repay the interest at three ancl a half per cent, per
annum, but in addition it would yield
an amount equivalent to a yearly payment of about two and a quarter
throughout the sixty years. Thus thc
yearly revenue would to almost half
the amount paid, in the first instance
for the land.
Considerable work in the planting
up of such land has been done in
France and Germany and much interest was shown at the meeting in
the address of Dr. B. E. Fernow, dean

LOWER TAXES
Municipal Forests May Help to Secure Them.
Forests owned ancl managed by
municipalities or communes arc no uncommon thing in Europe. Of late interest in this aspect of forestry is on
the increase on this continent. An
evidence of this fact was given by a
meeting lately held in Cobourg, Ont.,
ancl attended by representative men of
the counties of Northumberland and
Durham.
The municipal forests of Europe
frequently make a material reduction
iu the taxes of thc municipality—in
fact, sometimes wipe the taxes out altogether—by the revenue derived
from those forests.
The object of thc meeting referred
to was to consider the matter of the
United counties purchasing and reforesting a tract of land within their

Do you know how much time you are wasting in chopping
"kindling" for coal or wood stoves and carrying dusty coal or
ashes backwards and forwards? Do you know that a kitchen
where a Gas Stove is in UEe is always clean and tidy, spic and
span? Quick as a wink you have your fire without trouble of
building—turn off the gas tap and it is out; drudgery, worry and
money saved. A Gas Range means the economy of your great-
grandmother, combined with the science of modern invention. Let
us show you how easy and how inexpensive it is to cook with Gas.
Our reasonableness of price for good Gas Ranges and Radiators
will pleasantly surprise you.   Easy terms of payment if desired.

Do you know what comfort there is in good Gas Heat? Do
you know that without any fuss or bother you can quickly warm
a cold room or a chilly hallway with a Gas Radiator or a Gas
Grate? There may be some particular room in your house that
you cannot heat easily with a furnace and impracticable to use a
wood or coal stove. Ihis difficulty is easily overcome with a Gas
Heater. In bedroom, bathroom, living-room, drawing-room, den,
hall or office—anywhere from attic to basement, Gas Heat will
impart healthful warmth and codness at minimum expense. No
smell, no smoke, no dust, no work, but all heat, where you want
and when you want it.   We have good Gas Heaters at all prices.

t MUSIC AND I
I     THE STAGE |
tyfyifiiififfyififififitty1
Victoria Theatre.
Years ago Olga Nethersole made
the bold declaration that the public
went to the theatre for another purpose than merely to be amused or to
scrutinize the latest confection of the
modiste's and milliner's art; her contention and conviction having been
that the theatre was an institution
where the greatest mind workers of
the world gave expression, by reflective expositions to the analysis-reasoning and solution of conditions ancl
problems relative to the mortal and
physical betterment of the human
race, and while she has been criticized
for her advanced method of treatment in disclosing certain characters
Ihat were revealed with a realistic
bareness that startled the sedate auditor, thc intripedity and stern assurance with which she handled her delineations, each one undoubtedly true
to life, stamped her as art artiste of
metality, power and conviction.
Upon each succeeding visit to this
continent she has presented one or
more dramatic creations that have
opened a new avenue of thought and
discussion. Last season's contribution of "The Writing on the Wall"
revealed the tenement house conditions as they exist in Xew York, and
in fact in every large city; the furore
caused by this disclosure was the
means of bringing a State investigation and thereby remedying much of
the evil. Editorials were written, sermons preached, conferences were held
and resolutions passed condemning
the awful state of affairs as they then
existed; in short, the Stage with its
mission, and Miss Nethersole with:
her message succeeded in effecting in
three months what Xew York City
and State had laboured and failed to
achieve in years. Encouraged by this
success, she will continue presenting
"The Writing on the Wall" tbis season,   and   in   addition,   when   oppor
tunity permits, offer her former
triumphs "Sapho" and "The Second
Mrs. Tanqueray" thus, disclosing the
redemption of the woman, the home
and the environment.
eluding "My Maid in thc Moon,"
an electrical song hit, which is becoming very popular; "Mother
Goose's Baby Dolls," a medley number, with all the nursury rhyme char-
"The Cat and the Fiddle."
A positively entertaining and refreshing musical attraction is promised at the Victoria Theatre on Monday, October 4. when "The Cat and
the Fiddle" makes its annual appearance here. It is distinctly a show of
novelties and surprises, and this season many new ones are promised in-
acters introduced in life-like manner,
such as "Mother Goose," "Little Boy
Blue," "Bo Peep," "Red Riding
Hood," Simple Simon," "Tom, the
Piper's Son," "Humpty Dumpty," etc.
It is a great treat for the little ones,
it is claimed, while thc big folks will
be delighted; "Teddy in the Jungles,"
another new number, is a caricature
of a tropical nature, and with a scenic
setting in keeping, and Chas. A. Sel-
lon as "Teddy," assisted by the entire chorus.
The favourites of last season, "Ro-
sey Dreams," "The Undressed Kids,"
"Ifl were a Sailor," "In the Shadow
of an Old Date Tree," etc., are still
maintained.
The scenic environment which was
such a tremendous feature last season,
has also been improved, and A
Golden Fire Shower, introduced which
is said to be a most beautiful stage
illusion. Thc Wonderful Shipwreck,
the Castle of Great Gobs, the Mystic
Island of Eye, the Cave in the Cat-
skills, and other weird and beautiful
scenes are still features. Most of
the original cast will appear here
headed by Chas. A. Sellon, who will
be remembered for his clever work
here last season; thc El More Sisters
who havc a new Grand Opera stunt
this season, Florence Willis, thc beautiful Fairy Princess; Theresa Miller,
as Circe; Johann Bcrthlcson, Geo. E.
Wakefield, Jerome Bruner, Mort In-
fcld. Obie Campbell, the Gotthard
Bros., and others of musical comedy
fame, together with a singing and
dancing beauty chorus.
"In Wyoming."
"In Wyoming," Willard Mack's
stirring play of western life, will be
on view al the Victoria Theatre on
Wednesday, October 6th. Some one
has said that the days of the western
play are numbered. This may bc
true of the many so-called western
plays, with the shooting, exaggerated
characters, horse play and nonsense;
but if the avidity with which "In Wyoming" has been received in each of
the cities it has appeared in can bc
accepted as any criterion, it is safe
to say the knell of thc genuine, typical western play will not sound for
a long time yet. In addition to the
sympathetic story it details, there is
a spirit of naturalness about thc play
which gives it an added appeal. The
press in nearby cities say tbe supporting company give the piece a
very good presentation, and bring out
its  beauties  in  telling fashion.

play from the pens of Booth Tarking-

of "Thc Man From Home," now in

"Three Twins."
Mr. Jos, M. Gaites will offer at the
[ictoria Theatre on Thursday, Octo-
fer 14, the sensational musical comity, "Three Twins," which had a run
Ef live months at the Whitney Opera
douse, in Chicago, ancl one year at
he Herald Square Theatre, New
■Tork.
"Three Twins" contains more novel
ieatures than any musical comedy
[hat has ever been produced. The
I'aceograph is one of the most won-
rful electrical effects ever shown on
lhe stage. There are a number of
rnelodious song numbers including.
The Yama Yama Man." "Boo Hoo
fee Hee," "Good Night," "Cuddle Up
1 Little Closer," and many others.
The company is headed by Victor
|\lorley, who created the title role
vhen the piece was first produced at
Lhe Whitney Opera House, in Chica-
|*jo. Others among thc cast are Bessie
Clifford, Florenz Kolb, W. H. Woocl-
[side, Frank Smith, E. P. Bower, Ida
ll'oetz and a chorus of sixty people.
New Grand Theatre.
The sensation of the year in vau-
Ideville performances and in athletics
pis well will bc shown next week at
lie New Grand Theatre with the ap-
Ipearance of Ernest Pantzer and Com-
Ipany in which are three men and a
■boy. all athletes. The act is sensa-
Itional, for besides many wonderful
[feats of strength the boy is held at
[arm's length by the hand for a
(minute. Ernest Pantzer must be possessed of exceptional strength to hold
lthe weight straight out from his body
[for so long a time, while the boy's
[part of thc act is no less meritorious
[when he is able to hold himself in
la horizontal line without allowing his
[feet to drop to the floor. The act will
[prove one of the biggest vaudeville
[draws seen  here.
There  are  three other  goocl turns
ion the bill, Killion and Moore bringing one of the best singing ancl talk-
ling acts which is full of topical hits
md new melodies.
The     engagement    of    Josephine
j Ainslie has been made.   She will pre-
Isent a budget of entirely new songs
that will want to be heard more than
I once by the majority.    Her voice is
I goocl  and  her  songs  should  attract.
'The   Strollers,"   presented  by  Al.
I Spanieling and Leonare Dupuee, is a
[carnival of variety.    They will introduce  dances,  songs  and  dialogue  to
[the heart's content, all the while they
I are  on   the  stage;  Thomas J.  Price
I will   sing  "A   Picnic   for  Two,"  an-
ither of the newest New York pub
lications,  and  the bill will  be  completed with new motion pictures.
The New Majestic Theatre.
That the moving picture business is
a paying proposition is evidenced by
thc opening of this new house on
Yates Street (where the old Edison
theatre used to be). They are showing some excellent films, some of
them very lengthy. Those that cannot afford to pay $1 ancl $1.50 for
goocl seats at a good play can counteract their disappointment by taking
in one of these ioc picture shows.
The public would be very much surprised if they knew what thtse films
cost, and the large sums of money
that are paid to different artists who
perform for the manufacturers. In
France, which undoubtedly produces
the finest films in the world, the services are engaged of the leading actors and actresses at enormous sums,
similar to those who sing for the
gramaphone.
The Majestic Theatre already enjoys crowded houses and those who
believe in progressiveness will wish
them continued success. They will
change their programme on Mondays
ancl Thursdays. Matinees, to which
children are admitted for _c, are from
2 to 5.30. Evenings, from 7 to 11,
admission 10 cents.

The Art of  Catching Alligators.
A most exciting and often dangerous sport practised in Florida is that
of hooking alligators and capturing
them alive, says Harper's Weekly.
Compared with this, thc customary
method of hunting alligators at night
by the glare of a bull's-eye lantern
and armed with a heavily loaded
shotgun is exceedingly tame.
The requisites for alligator-catching
arc a long pole with a heavy metal
hook on thc cud and a plentiful supply of strong rope. Thus equipped,
thc hunters search for a 'gator hole
whose owner is at home. These are
located either in a dense mass of grass
an<l vegetation, where the mouth is
worn smooth by the passage of thc
beast in his daily trips out and in, or
have been dug in the side of a river
bank. Often the holes are fifteen or
twenty feet in depth and it is then a
difficult task for any but an expert
to bring the animals into the open.
When a suitable hole is found that
gives promise of being inhabited the
spiked end of the pole is jabbed into
it to probe for the beast. If the alligator is at home hc is joked repeatedly until, becoming thoroughly enraged, he graps the pole. The hook
catches his jaws and, in spite of all
resistance, the animal is dragged
forth. A noose has previously been
spread before the opening to the den,
ancl when the alligator finds himself
confronted by his tormentors he turns
and twists about, completely entangling himself in the ropes. His legs
and jaws are then securely tied and
the prisoner is ready to be removed.

Other speakers at the meeting were
Messrs. Thos. Southworth and Jas.
Lawler, president and secretary, respectively, of the Canadian Forestry
Association, E. J. Zavitz, forester to
the Ontario Department of Agriculture, and others. The meeting passed
resolutions favoring the reforestation
of the lands in question and recommending that the council of the counties try to secure the co-operation of
thc provincial government. Thc matter will be further discussed at a
scries of meetings to be held during
thc autumn to conclude with a meeting of representatives of the counties
in December next.
In other parts of Ontario are found
conditions very much the same as
those in thc district above referred to,
and similar action in the direction
of creating municipal forest reserves
could   bc   taken   with   advantage   to
