The powder to' be manufactured is the .identical powder manufactured by the Imperial Company in  the United States, whose. factory is  situated at the .������������������ City of , Chehalis,  Washington. This - powder is in no  sense a dynamite or has it any of the  ������ r i -  dangerous   .attributes' ��������� of    dynamite,  either in the manufacture, handling,  transportation or-use"   It appears that  it  is   impossible  to  get  a  premature  explosion of this powder except by its  denotations with a.-fulminating cap of  at least 6X strength.    No amount of  rough handling,  jarring, dropping  or  contact with- fife will cause this powder to. explode'..,������There._isJ.absolutely,  ' ho  danger  in   its   manufacture,   handling or storage to' any damage by' explosion to any adjacent property or.to  any person.    It is highly., infiamable,  and  in  its ���������   manufacture    the,   only  danger is by fire, but nothing else.   At  Chehalis, Wash., it is in an air line  from the four, principle corners of the  city  with  a  population   of  some   six  thousand people, and is, only one-half  mile away from the town.    The two  hundred and fifty thousand dollar power house that supplies power for the  lighting of "the city and operation of  the interurban electric road is within  eight hundred feet of the factory and  was built there and put in operation  after the powder factory was erected  and put in operation after the powder  factory was in operation.   The council  of the City of Chehalis, by resolution,  permits a  ton of. this  powder to  be  kept on the sidewalk in front of the  Company's office on the main street of  the town in the business district for  local sale from eight in the morning  to six in the evening, and were it not  for the danger of fire would permit it  to be kept there  constantly.    During  the time that the company has been  in  operation   at  Chehalis  it  has   experienced two fires.    All of the powder burned without explosion of any  kind,   and   therefore . without'clanger j  to the city.  What has been-the case in Chehalis  in regard to the safety of the powder  should be the same for Abbotsford  2nd there is no reason for the people  of Abbotsford having any fear for  their safety and: the safety of the  town, with the powder works in close  proximity to the town.  There is another pleasing feature  about this powder and that is that it  can be purchased very much cheaper  than that now purchased by the farmer, for his land clearing, and incidentally- should prove a boon to the man  who has land to clear. Cheap powder  has always been the cry of the farmer of the Fraser Valley and now that  it is to be had by the first of-August  for local use, it should be considered  somewhat of a solution to the clearing of the fertile land in the district.

CLOSE  SEASON  COMING.  Residents of, the forestateci areas of  ���������British Columbia .which means neces-  ��������� aarily���������the~greater- portion--of --the "-Province���������have now less than three clear  weeks in which to dispose ot accumulated slash, brush, etc., with a minimum of danger to contiguous timber  and without the,trifling inconvenience  of securing a permit for such' operation, from   the   District   Forester/or  Local Fire Warden, as the law directs  in the beneficial scheme of forest protection.    It may be well to remind all  .interested  residents   of the   Province  that  the- forestry    law  prescribes   a  "close season" extending from May 1  to  October 1, during which no slash,  brush, etc., may be- burned without a  permit   from     the   Provincial   Forest  Board.    This prohibition' is contained  in   sections  107  and  108  of  the  Act,  which read ' as  follows:  "During the close season it shall be  unlawful for any person to set out, or  cause to be set out, started or kindled,  any fire in or near any forests or  woodlands /except for the purpose of  clearing land, cooking, obtaining necessary warmth, or for any necessary  industrial, purpose permitted by the  minister, and unless the obligations  and precautions imposed in the following -sections shall be observed.  "During the close season no person,  firm or corporation shall' set out, or  cause to be set out, fires in or near  slashings of forest debris, standing or  fallen timber, or bush land, for the  purpose of' burning slashings, brush,  grass or other inflammable material,  or for any industrial purpose without  first obtaining a permit therefor; provided that no person shall be convicted who shall have set in'good faith  and with reasonable care a back fire  for the purpose oi* stopping the progress of a firo then actually burning.  It is greatly to their own interest  and their own convenience that settlers and all others who have slash  on their holdings to be got rid of  should attend to its destruction as  soon as possible, while all vegetation  is as yet green and tlie ground has  not dried under the summer sun, in  order that the element of danger  through fires spreading may be reduced to a minimum���������an advantage  to tlie Province generally and to tlie  settler, but to the settler most of-all.  Conditions for burning are now described as ideal, and little -difficulty  is to be.anticipated in controlling tlie  fires., fn many districts much brush  lias already been successfully disposed of and much more will have  been before the end of the-month and  the advent of the so-called "close season." If much slash is to be disposed  of as by lumbermen or others. clear-  In these'days when the province of ,  British Columbia is attractirg the at-,  ten tion. of the manufacturer it Is well  to know that there are many places-'  among the small towns of the FraS'er/A  Valley that are just the spot for manufacturing sites; arid .that they .can-be'  bought at very reasonable rates. With.'  such large prices for the laud in -the  coast cities the time is riot far distant  when  the  small  towns  will  at-   '  tract the manufacturer, especially the  small manufacturer,^and he is the one  who is really of benefit to any community.    A large concern in a small  town is a nuisance, as the attempt is  often made to rule the town and dictate, but the small  manufacturer appears-always willing to meet tlie people and the'merchants halfway.  There is no, better place in all the  Fraser Valley than the town of Ab-^  botsford for    a   manufacturing    site.'  There���������the best of shipping  facilities  and  plenty  of  cheap  electric  power  for all purposes that is needed.    The  shipping facilities are the B. C;. E;aK.,  the C. P. R. and the Great Northern.  It will thus be     seen that goods can  be shipped to all points on the Pacific  Coast: and 'across"the"-mountains ��������� into ':  both the United States and Canadian  prairies,  a market large  enough  for  a   concern   with   some  thousands  invested to.make money  The electric power con be secured  from-    either    the    Western    Canada'  I Power Company, or the B. C." Electric.  J Very  reasonable  term's  as   to power  .rates'can-be secured-that will be most  acceptible and    economical    for'   the  manufacturer.  It is worth while to investigate by  those who are wanting cheap sites.'  Valley   Horses  are   Again   Prominent.  Fraser Valley entries, as usual, take  a prominent place in the Vancouver  Horse Show. In the result of judging  announced yesterday, stock from the  Colony Farm captured first and- second places in the hackney stallion section, Brigham Radian carrying off  premier h-nTP.  Mr. D. C.

For standard bred mares three  years and over J. H. Wilkinson, of  Chilliwack secured first place with  Vera Wilkin.  The Colony Farm at Coquitlam with  Aranya captured first prize in the section for hackney mares two years and  over and again in the roadster class  of pacers X L Rosa captured the blue  ribbon.

In many  quarters it has been prophesized that  the coming season is likely to be one  of the hardest yet encountered on account of the very heavy growth of  crass resulting from last fall's.plentiful rainfall. In any event the early  removal of brush and debris will do  more than anything else to keep dangerous conflagrations from the woods.  * -f     *   * ���������        ""i1*-*    ���������������-���������    Tim TX    -i  ���������!"*���������       '���������!   \.m_    C ^7* liiii    ���������   T'    ft     ^"TM ^if***-  ��������� <H Ji1 ^f   I'M"*?*-!     t tv6c\.

Our Shibboleth���������Neither for nor agin the Government.  Friday, April 25, 1913  President   Wilson   seems   in   some  considerable measure to bo redeeming  his promises made, when on the hustings and is revising tlie tariff. According  to   tlie  reports  from   Washington  '���������* tho new bill will reduce the tariff revenue  some  $80,000,000  a year.    But  ���������   what is being taken off the tariff .will  , be more  than' made up- by  the  taxation of incomes.  He has insisted  on  the cheapening  of important articles in  general  use,  and to cover the deficit in revenue he  gets    after    tho incomes    large    and  small.   "It does, however, seem unfair,  that incomes of $4,000 a year should  have the same income tax placed upon  them as those of $19,999 and that the}  should   pay   one, per   cent,   when   all  over $100,000 a year will only pay 4  per cent.    The scale should .surely be  better graduated.    John  D.  Rockefeller,  with  perhaps ten or  twelve millions  a year,  could  undoubtedly  better afford to pay three or four of those  millions  to the state than  the  small  merchant  who   makes   $4,000   a  year  can afford to contribute $40 a year. It  'is probably .hist enough that the man  in  receipt of  $4,000  should  be  (axed  one per cent, of it,  how much more  proper and just it is then that men  with   such  vast  incomes   as   that  of  Rockefeller should pay into the coffers of the state a much larger proportion than--4 per cent, of them?  However, it is pleasing to note that  the tariff, which a few years ago was  getting higher and higher each time  the government worked with it, is  now coming down. It looks better than  to" see the Canadian government running with reciprocity as a free gift.  The Canadian government are now in  a position to meet the Americans half  . way, should the Borden government  feel so inclined.  THE  OUTLOOK.  With flour on the firee list and a  heavy reduction on wheat it would  appear-that the Canadian farmer is  now in an excellent position to compete "with the United States farmer  and at. the. same tiine make a little  money. It is just jossible that large  flour mills will be established throughout the west.  Things would appear to be for the  bettering of the condition of the prair-  ,ie farmer. With the privilege of borrowing money on his crop without  having to hustle it to the elevator at  a sacrifice, and the manufactured product being put on the free list so far  as the United States is concerned,  would it not appear things were coming somepeople's way.  Can't   somebody   do   something   so  'that'-.the  fruit-grower will have  matters- placed in better condition?  ��������� What about a Beauty Day for  town . when   everybody gets   busy  clean up..'  the  to  Let's form a pick-up club, ' arid  everyone join.', There are many things  that are detrimental to the health of  the people of- Mission City that could  be picked up and placed on the rubbish heap and burned, if we are to  have a clear bill of health.  THE  NEW  TARIFF.  Tlie removal of all tariff from many  articles of fod and clothing, broad ro  ductions in the rates of duty on all  necessaries of life; an increase of  tariff on many luxuries, and a new  income tax, that would touch the  pocket of every American citizen  whose net income exceeds $4,000, are  the striking features of the new Democratic tariff revision bill, presented to  the house at Washington.  Sugar would be free of duty in 191.0,  the bill proposing an immediate 2o  per "cent, reduction and the removal  of the remaining duty in 1916. Raw  wool would be made free at once, with] a(^eu(jve  a corresponding heavy reduction in  the tariff on woolen goods. All these  other articles are put on the free list,  namely:  Meats, Hour, broad, boots and shoes,  lumber,  coal, harness    saddlery    iron  ore,   milk and   cream,   potatoes,   salt,  swine, corn cornmeal, cotton bagging,  agricultural implements, leather, wood  pulp, Bibles, printing paper not worth  more   than   two   and   a  half   cents   a  pound,   typewriters, sewing machines,  typesetting machines,   cash   registers,  steel rail, fence wire, cotton ties, nails,  hoops   and   band   iron,   fish,   sulphur,  soda,   tanning   materials,   acetic   and  sulphuric   acids,   borax,    lumber   products, including broom handles,  clapboards, hubs for wheels, posts, pickets,  staves   and  shingles.  These principal , items are taken  from  the   free   list' and  taxed:  Rough, and uncut diamonds anc;  precious stones, coal tar products, 10  per cent.; volatile oils, 20 per cent.;  spices, from 1 cent to 2 cents per  pound.  The new rates,are estimated to' reduce the customs revenue about $80,-  000,000 a year. This is expected to  be made up by the income tax. Endorsed, by President Wilson the measure represents the efforts of the president and the house tariff makers to  carry into effect the Democratic  pledges of downward revision and of  concessions to the American consumer.. .   '   ;  Protection to the farmer would be  cut throughout by more than 50 per  cent: in an- effort to reduce the cost  of food.  Protection to the steel and implement manufacturers would in turn be  cut by fully as wide a margin.  Heaviest reductions fall upon foodstuffs, agricultural products, woolen  and cotton goods. Tlie free wool pro  posal, backed by the president and  accepted by the house committee, is  expected to provoke a severe fight  within the ranks of both houses, 'lhe  proposed changes in rates not included in the foregoing rates follow:  Barley matte, from 45 cents to 2b  cents a bushel; buckwheat from 15 to  8 cents a bushel; oats, from 15 to 10  cents a bushel; rice, cleaned, from 2  to 1 cent a pound; wheat from 25  to 5 cents a bushel; butter, from 6 to  3 cents per pound; cheese, from .6  cents per pound -to 20 per cent, ad  valorem; beans, from 45 tp 25 cents  per bushel; eggs, from 5 to 2 cents a  doz.; nursery cuttings and seedlings,  from 25 per cent, to 15 per cent.;  fresh vegetables, from 25 per cent, to  15 per cent.; apples, peaches, etc.,  from 25 to 10 cents a bushel.  The income tax which will transfer  indirect ��������� taxes levied through the  tariff into a direct tax upon the incomes of individuals and corporations,  exempts all sums below $4,000. Incomes in excess of that amount will  pay 1 -per cent, up to $20,000; 2 per  cent   from   $20,000  to  $50,000;   3   per  cent, from $50,000 to $100,000, and 4  per cent, above that figure. The bill  also includes in its provisions the  property and earnings in this country of persons living abroad. The  present corporation tax levying 1 per  cent, on corporation incomes above  $5,000 would be retained as part of  the income tax.  To encourage trade with foreign  countries, the bill would reverse the  maximum arid minimum provisions of  the'present tariff law. Tho new tariff  would be the maximum tariff and the  president would be given authority to  negotiate reciprocity treaties and  make : concessions to countries that  grant favors to American exporters.  Tennyson said, "He was of the opinion that if Keats had lived he would  have been the greatest poet since Milton." Now, what Keats did for English poetry was to, bring it back to  the untrammelled contemplation of  beauty as an end in itself. . He was  different'to Shelly in as much as "he  had no political or social creed to express; no revolt against convention,  as had Byron; no new philosophy to  impart, as .had Wordsworth. His en-  tiro message was beauty, his beauty  was truth. He was a born poet, not  a made poet. All he did was done  with a'fine instinctive art of his own  poetic impulse. Both his ��������� life and  works are worth the most careful and  study. His po.etry is the  most perfect we have in the language.  Shelly has two aspects, a purely  political and a purely poetical. From  the political' point of view he is the  poet in revolt. He was tlie first English poet who believed in the democracy, i So far as Christianity he lived  fo modify his' opinions,-and to write  a noble essay on Christ. He struck  the first note of a war of intelligence  against stupidity. Among, lyrical  poets he .stands supremo. - His "Ode  to the West Wind" and liigj- linos written among the' Euganoan hills. The  charm of his life, its fine sincerity  and enthusiasm' for ideals, and his  noble generosities are among .the  best things to, be remembered about,  him by his countrymen. Great poets  usually arise in groups.  After tlie artificiality of the school  of Pope comes the almost artless simplicity of Wordsworth, the potent passion of Byron, the ornate perfection  of Keats, and tlie lyrical splendor of  Shelley.  Then, after a long time, came Tennyson, uniting with perfect art the  simplicity of Wordsworth and the  ornateness of Keats; and as a counterpart of his smooth perfection ��������� the  grotesque and daring genius of Browning.  With the death of Tennyson the tide  ebbed   once   more.     This,  of  course,  does not imply the decay of poetry,  but we have no'"One among us with a  real message, with  the genius  to invent  a  new   style.    It  may  be  that  nature rests before producing another  great  poet.    It  may  be   as  well  to  say that, it is evident that in all that  I concerns form, poetry has greatly advanced in the last generation.   There  are   writers  to-day  who  in  some  degree  may   surpass   the  less   inspired  moods of Wordsworth, or beat Byron  at his worst, but wre are waiting ,for  the new message to be heard yet.   It  will come.    We shall know when we  hear it.  The earth has seasons and so has  the soul. There are periodic hours of  visitation, when the general movement runs through society and a fresh  wind of (intellectual impulse blows  over all lands simultaneously. This  fact is well-known to all readers of  history, and the examples found therein prove the case.  In the meantime let us study poets  and poetry we have' at hand and in  our study, and we shall have much  profit.  We shall not' be able to. write any  more for at least two months, when  we hope to take up this much loved  work again.  ULLING  on  your boot straps  will not get you very far.

For the. first time this year fresh  local oolichans were offered for sale  at the regular weekly market, New  Westminster, selling at three pounds  fojr 25c; those which have been on  sale heretofore having been imported  from the Columbia river. Although  ,in every department there was little  appreciable change in prices the market is improving from week to. week,  as summer approaches. A' briskness*  in trade' is noticeable which dioNiot  characterize the winter market, and  a spirit of "good business" permeates  every  department..  The anticipated fall in the price of  spiing salmon did not materialize, 20c  being  paid   for   the    red   variety   as  heretofore.     Eggs   opened   at   35c   a  dozen,   but  later  on   account  of  the  extra .large supply, fell  to 30c a dozen and remained firm at that price during the remainder of the market.   An  unusually large supply of seeds, 'bedding  plants,   slips   and   spring   planting requisite were there  for the horticulturists ,and vendors  were  almost  rushed off their feet attending to the  wants of the various purchasers.  Tu:  lips   were   to, ��������� be  had   by   the   dozen,'  grown out of doors and transplanted  into pots, at 25c a pot.   Gladioli bulbs  at 75c a  dozen,  cabbage,  tomato, lobelia,  salvia and  cauliflower bedding  plants  found a very hearty  demand,  for  the  larger   portion   realizing  25c  per two dozen bunch.    Rhubarb roots  weie offered at 2 i'or 25c.    Throughout the flower department the plants  which were offered this week appeared to be in a much moie healthy condition  than those _ previously displayed, that they were appreciated by the  shoppers   were     evidenced     by    the  steady  and  brisk demand.  Poultry prices remained the same  as last week, chickens selling for from  $12 to $13 a dozen, with an excellent  supply. Ducks still remained scarce  ���������and the high price, $18 . a doz., .still  prevailed,-although in a very unsteady  condition. The vegetable market  showed little change either in supply  or demand, supply still being superabundant and the' demand, mediocre.  Prices remained unchanged with no  indication of. immediate diminution or  appreciation.  Butter still remained at 40c a pound  with no signs of a change. A number of crates of shoats were offered  for sale.. The little grunters sold at  about  $6   each  THE KIND OF A  MAN A WOMAN  LIKES.  The land of man..a woman likes  has Leen discussed by airs. Bailie  Reynolds, of London. She writes , in  part:  "The question is as preposterous as  the question Ts Marriage a Failure?'  It is as futile a it would be to enquire, 'Are eggs fresh.' The whole  ..point is that some eggs are fresh and  some are not, that'some marriages are  failures and some are not, that come  women like one kind of man and  some women another. It takes, all  sorts to make a world, and this is fortunate. If the, same individual were  attractive to all members of the other  sex, a situation of some difficulty  might result.  "So long as we use the expression  'falling in love' so long shall we fail  to distinguish 'between love and a  thing very different.  , "Most people confuse the two things  hopelessly. You will hear them say  of some marriage which has ended'  in disaster, 'And it was quite a love  marriage, you know. They were simply wild about' each other.' They may  have .been;-but they did not love each  other   "We find ourselves, in this twentieth  century, a. nation full of nerves and  fads, living for the most part lives  compounded of small issues and small  worries. Such a life will not stand  the strain of marriage without the  secret lamp of pure love to light the  way���������love that never fails���������that  hopes, believes,  endures.  The man who is generally attractive is the man to be shunned by the  woman who desires a happy home.  Such a man is not and cannot be the  friend whose, steady and patient tenderness and sympathetic understanding are going to lead her safely across  the shoals of 'midchannel;'  "What a woman wants is, the man  who. is capable of loving, and who  loves her individually."  his  friends had  noticed  that he wau  failing fast.   His death removes a man  who  was   universally   respected,   and  one  of the few  strong political  partisans  who made no  enemies  among  his   opponents.    His   editorials   were  brief,   concise,    lucid   and     pungent,  characteristics in which he resembled  one who was for many years his fellow townsman and rival, the late John  Houston.    Mr. Deane will be greatly  missed by the party to which he rendered  conspicuous  service,  and  none  the less by those who recognized that  in him they had a foeman worthy of  their steel.���������The Week.

He was at all times a consistent and aggressive Liberal; he  never sat on the fence, but was a  newspaperman, who believed that the  public wanted the news.
