Precautions for Preserving Forests from Destruction
by Fire.
Dry Season Began. Campers and All
Others Must be Carefulr^Law
is Stringent.
The dry season is now with us and the
danger from running fires increases as
the hot weather approaches. It would be
a great misfortune to have the timber of
this district destroyed^ beside, there is
always the danger of burniug hoiiies,
camps and villages from a runaway fire.
All persons having occasion to make fires
in the open should not fail to observe the
conditions prescribed by law, failing in
which they are liable to severe penalties
While a fire for cooking or other purposes is in progress it should not be left
unguarded for a moment-, as it may res^ft
in the destruction of millions of money's
worth of forests and other property.
Forestry in western Canada, as everywhere else, means far more thau the
planting of trees. The first step in forestry is the preservation of forests already
existing, and, as far as Canada—east and
west alike—is concerned, that means the
keeping out of fires. Something in this
direction has already been done in Canada, but much remains to be done.
Forest fires in the Rockies, their effects
and means of preventing them are discussed by the Inspector of Dominion
Forest Reserves in the December issue of
the Canadian Forestry Journal. His article gives the result of investigations
made by him during the season of 1905
in the Crow's Nest District of Southern
Alberta, more accuratery defined as the
valley of the middle fork of the Old
Jklan River, between the Livingstone
range and the western boundary of Alberta.
Originally this whole region was heavily timbered, so the reports of explorers
and other early visitors to the district
say, with the exception of a small area
situated above timber line. 'So numerous and so disastrous have been the fires
following in the wake of travellers, settlers and railways,' writes the Inspector,
'that at present, of the original 212 sq.
miles of forest, only 33 sq. miles remain.'
Moreover, the .timber which is essiest to
get at is always "first destroyed, and what
is left is situated at high levels and in
other places where it is hard to get at.
Not only has the timber originally on
the land been destroyed, but in some
cases all possibility of producing more
timber except at enormous expense for
artificial planting, has been taken away".
Fire protection is obviously the great need
of the timbered country and the Depart
ment of the Interior, through its Forestry branch, is devising means to this
end So far, the measures used for the
protection of forests from fire have consisted of the patrol of the forests by
rangers, who constantly travel through
the forest, keep a lookout for fires, (often
discovering and exiinguishing in their
beginnings fires which, negleeted, would
burn over miles of territory), fight fires
and warn campers and travellers against
the careless use of fire. This patrol will
in all probability form the basis of the
system of protection eventually put in
operation, supplemented by the use of
'lookouts' and the telephone.

WHAT ABOUT DOMINION DAY
CELEBBATION ?
There is not much time to spare for. the
preparation of the First of July celebration. In some quarters it is thought that,
a variation from the old form of celebration would be acceptable. For instance:
A pageant composed of histrionic char
acters illustrative of early life in the
Jimhillkameen valley, introducing scalp
hunters, aboriginal calithumpians, tomahawk business, music on tomjon, blue
fire at night, blue smoke in day, cyclo-
ramic spectacle, chariot race, the whole
to wind up with speeches by pioneers of
Princeton interlarded with songs from
H. Lauder, Esq. Whatever, form the
celebration takes it will have to be advertised at least three clear weeks.
The Montreal Board of Trade at a recent meeting adopted a resolution declaring for free trade within the empire. It
is not impossible that Princeton Board of
Trade may adopt a similar resolution at
its next session, thus assisting in the
mighty work of solidifying the Umpire
—a far nobler purpose than naggling at
an imaginary foe: The Teutons for in.-;
stance.

One of the biggest contracts signed up
so far this year for apples for fall delivery

.are that this fall will see the biggest prices
for apples ever received.
The V F.M. Co's new office is receiving its final touch of color from the

The population of Canada- is now estimated at over 7,000,000, an increase of
1,600,000 since 1901.
Principal Cochrane of the public school
is so attached to the social and scenic
Princeton that he has bought two lots
from Mrs. Allison near the river forks
and will erect a house thereon. By way
of 'getting up' muscle, so that the scholastic twig may be the better bent, he is
digging a fine cellar.
O weather clerk, what do you mean
By sending frost in May?
The grass is only getting green,
And colds are fresh every day.

Considerable road work is going on at
present, which includes the change in
the Five-Mile road from Macdougalton
down One-Mile, a light grade having
been found to meet the requirements of
heavy tonnage ot coal and ore. G. Murdoch is in charge of a gang repairing the
road to Ashnola and two other parties
are working westward on trails. The
road from bridge to bridge is being put
in. good condition and now presents a
surface fit for any load.
Trapper Ryder came down from the
Roche river section and reports considerable snow owing to backward season.
He has only captured two bears so far.
Sir Richard Cartwright declares for the

Disapproval of the present day tendency to increase armaments among the
great powers of the world was expressed
at the recent session of the Methodist
conference at Westminster. Condemnation of yellow journalism tending to promote a warlike spirit among the easily

WALKING ABOUND STATES
FOB WAGES.
A continental tourist named Starl Con-
ley arrived in Princeton last week, having covered 9803 miles on foot. He is
travelling on a wager made in Toledo,
O., in 1907 that he could not go around
the United States afoot' in three years,
starting with a penny and earning his
board along the route. Mr. Conley is
ahead of time and will win #2000 if no
accident occurs on the home stretch between here and Toledo. He travels light
with only a rifle, sweat mop and diary to
encumber. Of course he will write a
book when his jaunt is over and is receiving orders in advance.
PBINCETON FAST BECOMING
HEALTH BESOBT.
Private advices from Jim Hill state that
he will be in Princeton about the 1st of
July and will probably come over the"
Hope trail. It has been Jim's custom for
several years past to come here to inhale the sweet breath of the pines and
expand his chest with our celebrated
mountain ozone. When the V.,V. & E.
is complete many hundreds of coast,
dwellers will come here to 'build up' and
escape the enervating climate there, but
when, ah, when ! Not even J, J. seems,
to know or care.

IBEFOBMS UBGENTLY NEEDED
IN LEGISLATURES.
Reformation in the individual is
an indication of progress and the
man who cannot see any necessity
for reform in himself is in a sorry
condition. The man who has not
courage to confess his faults is
tending downwards,- and the people
who are so blind to their national
welfare as to wilfully close their
' eyes to any lurking evil will surely
lose in the race of nations. Our
political life in Canada is saturated
with graft and many other forms of
corruption. Men in high and low
positions in the service of the public taking bribes, commissions,
rakeoffs. in fact stealing outright,
as has recently been exposed by a
commission of investigation. It is
a matter of daily notice that incompetent superintendents, inspectors,
and what not, are appointed and
held in position by political influence. These men are utterly w6rth-
less as public servants and would
not be tolerated in a similar position in any private company or cor
poration. Their obeisance to the
god of graft and a readiness to part
with a portion of their spoils or
.even salary to those who are responsible for their appointment, are their
chief recommendations for the position.
".Reform is needed iu every branch
of the public service, beginnirg
with the senate, commons, and provincial legislatures and extending
to judges, and all officials. It has
long been recognized that the senate
as now composed is about as feeble
physically and politically as any
arm of government could well be.
Aged and worn out party politicians
find in this chamber a happy hunting ground where there is little to
do and about a dozen active senators do it. The remainder of the
83 draw a salary of $2500, for
what? The senate has outlived its
usefulness and is now nothing more
nor less than a reward for party
incapacity—an old man's home.
No reformation of the senate will
be effective without first making it
elective instead of life appointed.
Men appointed to any position for
life have not that incentive to perform their duties which men have
who are made answerable every
four or less years for their conduct.
Hereditary  legislators, such as the
their special use and benefit, reflecting* their personal views and wants
rather than representing the wishes
and needs of the sovereign people.
And, since the people pay for government it is only reasonable that
they should be consulted on the
more important questions, especially
those involving large expenditure
of their money. Back to the people by referendum or any other process giving them direct voice, for,
there is wisdom and truth in the
many as opposed to. the minority or
few.    Vox populi, vox Dei.
In reforming the senate and commons reduction by one half should
be made of the members. By so
doing permanent employment would
be. found for members the year
around. Instead of receiving $2500
for each session that amount would
be doubled, making $5000 yearly
for continuous legislative work.irj
parliament. By this steady application to legislative work greater
proficiency would be gained in law
making and more and better work
accomplished. Now, a lot "of men-
bers take their seats and. are never
heard from—dumb as tombs—apparently neither use nor'ornament.
In the reformed senate and com
mons there'would be no idle men or
absentees. The age limit for all
senators, M.P's and government
employees should be sixty years,
thus opening the avenues of promotion and opportunity earlier than at
present to the younger, and energetic citizen. A much better class
of men will be attracted to our legislative halls by the salary and in devoting all their time to legislation
many irksome .delays would be
overcome.
Canadian legislators and judges
are neither better -tior worse than
those in any other country. Human;
nature is pretty much the same the
world over. What is most urgently
needed is tbe removal of temptation
and opportunity for wrong doing.
To this end the total obliteration of
the patronage system would remove
two-thirds or more of the rampant
political iniquity so glaringly evident in every department of government. It would also remove the
incompetent party heeler who only
serves himself and his master who
keeps him in position. Under the
present system any official, no matter how incapable or unfit, may
practise the games of holdup and
knockdown with little fear of exposure from the Opposition and
certainly none from the member in
whose patronage he securely reclines. There is need of reform
from top to bottom ; from the senate to the holder of the lowest office
in the land.

|THE PHILOSOPHY OF LIPE.
A man should never be ashamed to own
he has been in the wrong, It is but saying in other words that he is wiser today
than yesterday.
If a man won't work the least he can
do is not to hinder those who do.
There is no spur to ambition and progress like a lofty aim, a noble purpose.
The dangers of knowledge are not to
"be compared with the dangers of ignorance. The groucher and knocker grope
in the dark with the result that they both
fall in the ditch and are buried in tbe
mud they so freely sling at superiors.
Spoken or  written truths are impervious to the attacks of sarcasm or slan-
' der.   Truth must prevail.
It is the easiest thing in the world to
find fault, but hard to perform, j
