C*inad*wj%«sg^are the  UuUe^l   States, on
this cdtttin'en't,' attid,   ill   Europe,   Austro^
Hungary', Norway, Sweden,   Russia  and
Finland.       In    Asia,   only   Russia   has
more than enough forherown use; Africa,
and South A'tne^ica can send little or   no
limber   suitable   for   ordinary  use,  and
Australis can-supply little.
Of the seven exporting countries mention, the United States, Russia and Austria Hungary have been increasing in
population and developing their resources
so rapidly that they must soon cease to
.^nk-SJnong exporting countries. Nor
way is overcutting her- 'forests and muse
soon decrease her export. Only three
countries remain, namely, Canada, Sweden and Finlandjiias.-soiirces?t}ia£ can be
depended on for the timber supply.
Canada's forest area has been estimated
at 800,000,000 acres, but so much of this
is of little value naturally, or has been
burned over that more recent estimates
fall much below this, even less than half.
The rmount of wood produced ■•annually
is no doubt much in excess of what is
now being cut each year. It is important, however, if Canada is to hold her
position as a timber- producing country,
that her forests be protected from fire
and so managed as to ensure the greatest
amount of timber being cut 3 ear after
year, so as to keep them producing in
perpetuity; and it is to this end that ef-
Jorts are being made to secure better care
of her forests.
The demand for wood is sure to keep
up and increase; it is wanted for building, for furniture, for tools, and for a
inulsitude of other uses; and as a nation
progresses so the amount of wood used
for each individual of its  population in
creases, and  so  the   country which   can
supply the demand for this   commodity j
has a source of   ever increasing   importance, and one   that will well   repay considerable expenditures in its care.

small force of men employed. Shortage
of labor can no longer be held out as an

it is either shortage of money or a desire
to hold off as long as possible to gain
some material end.
That great Conservative false alarm. Sir
Charles Hibbert Tupper, has been asked
by a few of his political admirers in Vancouver to contest that constituency in
the forthcoming Dominion general election. Sir Hibbert graciously acknowledged the honor and said he was "in the
hands of the Conservative party." The
gallant knight had better stay with his
friends'way down in Nova Scotia, if he
knows what's good for himself. He'd
make easy pickings for- most any old

the exception of Anaconda, the largest
ton the continent. At full capacity from
now on we will be turning out at Uie
•Granby smelter from 3,000 to 3.500 tons
of ore daily, Mr. Graves is reported as
saying. "This is our present full capacity," said Mr. Graves, "and there isevery
indication that we will be running at full
capacity, and there is' every indication
that we will be'running at full capacity
from now 011 until the middle of next
summer. So exceptionally "encouraging
is the-outlook in the Boundary country
that I think I may safely say that by the
middle of i&S-t summerwe.jvjlli.be in
such a position as to feel in -revery way
justified in increasing our- capacity by at
least 1,000 tons a day. This will bring
the Granby smelter up to a total capacity
of fully, 4,500 tons daily. Our present
aggregate monthly output is 100,000 tons
ot about 1,500,000 tons a year. The
point that I wish particularly to emphasize is that all differences which may
have existed between the Granby smelter
and its employees have been adjusted on
a most satisfactory basis, and there is not
the slightest reason why we should not
have a most prosperous year. The management certainly feels like expressing
its gratification at this satisfactory turn
of affairs, notwithstanding the fact that,
owing to the present low price of copper,
the company's profits will be greatly re*,
duced from what they might ordinarily
be expected."
WISE IMMIGBATION LAW.
Ottawa advices say that that the Interior department is drawing up regula.
tions which will  require  that   all   emi
grants seeking admission to Canada must
come into this country direct from their
place of birth, or their country of citizenship. This will apply both to the Atlantic and Pacific and will put an end to the
immigration of Japanese from Honolulu
to British Columbia. The new regulation
will also control immigration to the Dominion from southern Europe and will
check immigration to Canada via American ports.     .	
PAYMENT ON MINING DEAL.
The first payment on the Reco bond
was made this week by J. E. McCauley,
who isiu charge of the property; and the
money for-the second payment has already been provided for. Mr. McCauley
was seen at the Hotel Tulatneen this
morning and stated that everything was
turning out satisfactorily at the thine and

A meeting of western members of the
Canadian Mining Institute is being held
at Nelson this afternoon for the purpose
of forming a western branch of the in-

of papers affecting the   mining  industry.
Saturday, January 25th, is the anniver-
saty of the birth of the great Scottish
bard, Robert'Burns.
A man named Clarke was arrested last
week in Kelowna on a charge of burg-
lery, and it is probable he wiji also be
held for the murder of Zimmerman at
Penticton about a year ago. He was arrested in connection with this crime
shortly after it happed, but lack of evidence at that time cleared him. It now
appears fresh evidence has come to light
which makes it look bad for Clarke.
There are rumors of the early- retirement of Sir Henry Campbell-Bannerman
from the premiership of the British House
of Commons, says Old Country advices,
and that he will be succeeded by Herbert
H. Asquith. The latter is considered unsympathetic in the cause of Home Rule
and his succession to that office would
lead to important developments in the
policy of the Irish party and its relations
to the Liberal party.
The famous Harry K. Thaw trial is
again before the courts of New York and
is attracting widespread interest. The
former defence of "not guilty" has been
amended by the specification that the defendant was insane when the alleged
homicide was committed.;

THE LEASING SYSTEM.
"It is an ill wind that blows nobody
good." Since jobs are hard to get the
miners have turned their energies to
leasing. Leases that went begging six
months ago are eagerly snapped up today. This feature of the present times is
particularly noticeable in gold camps,
Cripple Creek being l rob ibly the most
popular because of the high grade of the
ores and the facilities for marketing them.
The same news is coming from all gold
districts, however, and high grade silver
camps are a close second in demand,
Austin, Nevada, is mentioned among
others of the latter class. Even in camps
that produce those metals most injured
by the slump there is an unprecedented
demand for leases. This is especially observable in the Missouri-Kansas zinc-lead
'mines, in 'the' copper mines at Butte, and
in the lead copper-silver mines at Tiutic,
Utah. The recuperative power of the
mining industry is something remark-
uble. ■ When things go wrong in one
quarter the miner cheerfully shifts his
energies to another and steadily forges

Landlady: I hope you slept well last
night, sir? Boarder: Well, not exactly.
I was"tropble'd with an attack of insomnia
Landlady, (indignantly): It's a falsehood, sir! I'll give you a sovereign for
every one you can find in the bed.
They took him to the asylum moaning
feebly; "Thirty-nine, thirty - nine."
"What does he mean by that?" asked the
attendant. "It's the number of buttons
on the back of his wife's new frock," the
family doctor explained.
A woman agitator, holding forth on
the platform and presenting the greatness
of her sex, cried out: "Take away woman, and what would follow?" And
from the audience came a clear, male
voice:    "We would."
Mrs. Newlywed: My dear, what interior decorations appeal to your, taste?
Mr. Newlywed:    Beefsteak and onions.
Hubby: Oh, dotry and talk common
sense! Wife: I would, but it would be
taking an unfair advantage of you.
"Say, waiter, here's a hair in the butter." ■ "Yes, sir. A cow's hair, sir. The
revised rules of:t$s department of agriculture requires us to serve one with each
pat, sir, as proof that it ain't oleo."
"When did you become acquainted
with your husband?" "The first time I
asked him for money afjer we were married."
