THE BOARD OF TRADE
Forest   Fire Prevention  Considered—To Reorganize
.Fire Brigade.
Quarterly Sessions of Court and Public Buildings Matter Delayed
Once Again.
At the monthly meeting of the board
of trade held Monday night, after the
usual routine, the following communications were read :
From the Conservation Commission,
Ottawa, re Forest Fires, stating that during the past summer 'fires have been devouring the growth of centuries with
ruthless rapacity. Fine tracts of merchantable timber worth millions of dol
lars have been destroyedin Ontario, British Columbia and Manitoba. Even if no
thought be given to the number of lives
lost, it must be admitted that the loss
occasioned this year by forest fires is
nothing short of appalling. Can nothing
be done, then, to prevent this loss? The
answer is that much can be done. The
solution of the problem is indicated in
two words—public sentiment. The two
principal causes of forest fires are campers and railways, and public opinion
must be brought to bear on these.'
Less Theory, More Practice.
From Secretary G. H. Brock of the
Fire Chiefs' convention at Revelstoke,
sending copy of proceedings from which
is the following relating to forest fires
by Chief D. McDougall, of Fernie : 'The
recent forest fires show that the problem
of protecting not only the timber interest, but also the towns and cities, has not
been solved. There is too much parsimony about our governments, both Dominion und provincial—too much of the
'penny wise and pound foolish' way of
attending to the conservation of the
forest. Is it n.ot fear of the railway interests that prevents prosecution for the
many fires along the roads throughout
the province ? We all know that a large
percentage of fires were caused by sparks
from locomotives. This can be prevented. When forest rangers or fire wardens
are appointed they should be men capable of attending to their duties, not men
with political 'pull.' They should study
the forest as fire chiefs investigate the
towns and cities, and be always ready to
meet with any emergency. We value our
timber wealth at millions of dollars. It
is, and will be, a main source of revenue.
Surely we can afford to protect something
so vitally important. A forest ranger
here and there, engaged for two or three
months, is of no value. We should have
'men' attending to the forest who understand their business.   They should have
good laws to enforce and be above any
influence. A 'forest ranger' should cover
all territory in his district and prevent
conflagrations.'
The board endorsed the suggestions
made by the Conservation Commission
and the Fire Chiefs Convention, adding
thereto the penalty of imprisonment fo
setting fires under any conditions, during
the prohibited season, holding railway
presidents and heads of companies responsible for fires caused by their locomotives or steamers.
The board recommends thorough reorganization of the Princeton Fire Brigade, made necessary by the advent of a
waterworks system.
The matter of quarterly sessions of the
county court was left over until next
meeting, meanwhile the visiting judge
wonld be interviewed.
The board ordered a minute to be made
of the importance accruing to this section through the establishment of a large
cement works with a payroll of four
hundred employees and inviting officials
of the enterprise to become members of
this board.
The board deferred action re Dominion
public buildings owing to the postponement of the opening of parliament to
the first of next year.
It was urged that all delinquent members of the   board be requested  to pay
their arreages and thus help in a publicity campaign.
, Board adjourned.
PBOGBESS AND ENTERPRISE.
Cement Industry will Benefit Whole
Country—Townsite Selected.
The British Columbia Portland Cement
Co., Limited, with commendable energy
and business tact, is making rapid strides
toward the establishment of its large
works. Cegal and other preliminary
steps had to be completed before industrial aciivity on a large scale could be
undertaken. The secretary-treasurer of
the company, C. R. Briggs, has not been
idle, having disposed of considerable
amounts of stock to citizens, who readily
appreciate the proposition and sign their
checks forthwith. A townsite has been
selected on the Similkameen river opposite the Westwood orchard and between
the Allison home and H. Hunter's d .m-
esne, thft__.reets of wljich will he -payed
with cetnentv A recaeation park and
athletic grounds will be provided for
what is proposed to be a model town.
It is so close to Princeton that it will
probably be included in its incorporated
confines, or it may be that each in
friendly rivalry may swallow up or down
the other and thus become one homogenous whole. The railroad bridge at the
eastern boundary of "Cement City" will
probably have near it an ordinary traffic
bridge.

There is a good opening in Princeton
for a watchmaker and jeweler, now that
Mr. Massonat has been obliged to leave
on account of his serious illness.
NECESSITY OF GOOD WATER.
The commission of conservation, Ottawa, issue bulletins on various subjects
which newspapers are invited to give
publicity to. The following on water
supply is important :
' The quality of water for human consumption depends upon the polluting and
purifying influences to which it has been
subjected before reaching the consumer.
It is well known that the general health
of a community using a sewage polluted
water gradually falls lower and lower and
the death rate increases proportionately.
Of the diseases most frequently following the use of an impure water, typhoid
fever holds, at the present day, the most
prominent position in the public eye. It
is a curious fact, as yet unexplained, that
the change from 'an impure water to a
pure supply diminishes the sickness and
death late, not only from typhoid fever,
but also from tuberculosis, pneumonia,
and other serious diseases. It is also a
fact that in certain cities using a sewage
polluted water the death rate from typhoid fever is many times more than that
for cities using a filtered water supply
taken from the same source.
Generally speaking, there are two methods in nse for the filtration of public
water supplies: they are known as the
'Slow Sand' filtration and 'Mechanical'
filtration. In the former type, the water
filters through teds of sand and gravel
at varying rates of from two to five million gallons per acre every twenty-four
hours, according to the character of the
water. In mechanical filtration, a precipitate is first added to the water, which
is then passed through a medium of sand
under pressure, the rate of filtration being
many times moie than in the slow sand
filters. A mechanical filter can be operated with a high degree of efficiency as
regards purification. This is well exemplified at Chatham, Ontario, where* for
Some years mechanical filters have been
in operation, the water treated being that
of the river Thames.'
THE CROPS CLOSE TO AVERAGE.
Farmers are not in such bad condition
in regard to crops as was anticipatedjdur-
ing the cold-dry-hot weather of last summer. Straw is short and' the yield of
grain is under average in quantity but
of good quality. The hum of the threshing machine is now heard throughout
the Fivemile section and 'Hodge' is smiling over the fact that he is reaping more
bountifully than he expected. Potatoes
and other vegetables are shy somewhat
owing to the great drouth and cold snap
at the end of summer. It was an offseason, possibly due to the climatic disturbance caused by the swishing of the tail
of that heavenly visitant—the comet.
TOWN AND DISTRICT.
Hugh Cowan is gaining slowly but certainly in health, and expects to go south
to receive benefit from warmer climate.
The Nelson mineral display at the big

The B. C. Firemen's Association
will hold  their  annual convention
at Cranbrook,  B.C.,   on  the   18th
and 19th of this month.    The subjects fire protection  and  prevention  will have  wide consideration,
especially as this year has witnessed
the  destruction   of towns and vast
areas of timber,   besides  appalling
loss of life.    The  Association aims
to do all in its power to remedy the
fire evil.    If it were possible to send
a  delegate   from   Princeton  to the
convention it would be a _-tep in the
right direction   and possibly be the
means of solving  the   very serious
problem of fire protection and  prevention.    Regarding fire protection
in Princeton  the waterworks  now
being  constructed  will give ample
water  supply.     Reorganization of
the fire brigade is now urgent.
Tbe new provincial liquor law
is 'making good' all the time and is
proving the soundness of its principle in every instance. To control
the liquor business is quite as easy
as the control of any other—it all
depends on the authorities enforcing the law. Recently the heavy
fine of $100 was imposed on the
proprietor of the Coldwater hotel at
Merritt for not having his blinds in
the required position, and a hotel-
keeper at Kamloops was fined $100
for giving liquor to a drunken man.
