Robert Jacobs, ..one of tha  ! pioneers of Greenwood,who when  passing-through Vancouver the  o;her day on his way throug-h to'  the Coast, cities and Spokane and  possibly later to Greenwood was  interviewed by the Province and  had a,good word to say for the  North country from' which* so  many men have been-comyjg lately with a grievance, The Province on Monday said :  "Mr. I. Robert Jacobs, a well  known mining operator who  made a big clean-up at Cobalt,  has returned here from a tour  through several new mining districts in Northern British Columbia. His mission was to examine variouspropositions which  had been submitted to a syndicate  of Montreal and New York capitalists which he organized before  leaving-the east.  Mr. Jacobs spent   most of his  time in the Telkwa district. .-* He  stated that he was very favorably  j impressed with   the -mining possibilities of that region.    He had  examined   some   splendid copper  aud silver prospects but onl y cared  to speak in   general terms until  he had reported to his- associates,  Development work   up   norlh  is  only.: in  its' infant   stages,   and  some- years   will   elapse before  smelting and shipping facilities  are secured. Under these circumstances only companies with am  pie capital could hope   to  carry  out operations over along period  ou an~extensive   scale,    He   had  no doubt the Telkwa district was  destined to become a large copper producer, possibly larger than  the Boundary district, Nvhere he  formerly operated.    He was also  favorably   impressed    with    the  splendid showings of coal.  Mr. Jacobs could not disguise  his enthusiasm about the, agricultural resources of the Bulkley  Yelley,  "I know Southern British Columbia thoroughly and have yet  to see any land to surpass the soil  in the' Bulkley. The crops this  vear are well advanced and will  give an abundant yield. Before  I left new potatoes and other vegetables were in the market.  Ranchers are few, as the country  has been'bianketed-with war scrip  and this may withhold development. Mr. Thompson a rancher  who located there three years ago,  is fast making a fortune. H^ says  he bas struck a paradise and wants  no more of Colorado because the  wind there blew his seed away.  Although 65 years old, He declared  that ue did not have any regret  at seeking a location in such an  out-of-the-way place. People are  coming in to the country and thc  ranchers get.a market at their  doors. Mrs. Learoyd, another  landowner, has ten cOws that net  her $7 50 a day alter the wants  of her family are proyided for."  Mr. Jacobs was entertained today by an-old Rossland friend,  Count Crowe.

At a meeting of the residents of  Myncaster and District held at the  Myncaster Hotel on the 9th inst. there  was inaugurated an Association to be  called "The Myncaster Club." The  object of the organization is for the  furtherance of the farming, social and  athletic interests of the 'community.  The officials appointed were Mr. J.  G. McMynn, President ; Mr. A. B  Sowter, Secretary and Treasurer, and  a committee composed of the aforesaid as ex-officio members and Mes-  srs. Leach, Somers, Courtney, Pearson, Milroy, Donald and Robinson.

Two weeks ago enquiries were  received in Greenwood for this  stock at 6^ but .Greenwood had  none to sell at that price. Last  week the rise, continued and on  Monday of this week the Vancouver Province reported that  this ..stock had created a sensation  on the exchange there. The report also included a reference to  International Coa'. and Coke, the  company from which the B. C.  Copper Co. geis its coke supply,  The Province said :  On Friday British Columbia Copper closed quietly at $6.00 bid  aad $6.75 asked,to-day a sensation  was caused by the manner iu  which the stock was bid up to $7.50  without getting any offers. At  this price $8 25 was brought out  as the selling price.' The reason  for the rise lies in the facts that  trading on the New York curb has  driven this stock up to 7 5-8 to  7 7-8. The quotations in other  stocks were not of much importance. International Coal and  Coke are a little stronger,the bidding price coming up gradually  to askers. There has been a gOQd  deal of trading done in this stock  in Spokane lately, and it.is believed that some development is  about to take place which may  have the affect of broadening its  value. i  I O.O.F- Smoker.  At next Tuesday's meeting of the  Oddfellow's Lodge, the Second degree will be conferred on three candidates. Lodge will open promptly at  8 o'clock and the degree ceremonies  will commence at 8.15.

In a weyk,. Ferrye has changed  from a city of destruction to a  city of opportunity. Prom various parts of British Columbia  carpenters, builders and mechanics and not only these but business men have gone to' Fernie  looking for business openings.  From Greenwood, Kenneth McKenzie, C. H. Archibald, H. -McCurdy, H. T. Hunter, and. j! McRae all have visited the fire-  swept country, the first three to  stay to take part in rebuilding  the city, Mr. Hunter returnipg  yesterday and. Mr. McRae early  next week.        ;  Three hundred   carpenters   are  at' work in Fernie, drawing from  5to$6adiy.    Tae  Firate  pjo*  pie are standing   together, however, and  anyone entering   business there is required by the city  to furnish* bonds to the "extent of  of $500 that they will remain  in  bueiness over a Year.  .  Real estate in Fernie is  high.  From. $10,000 to $12000 have been  been refused for   corner- lots  in  the city during   the   past week.  Inside lofes'with a 30ft frontage are  bringing when sold at all between  $5,000 and $6,000.  No good.business' locations can be   hid  under  $4,000. ���/'      .���  :  The,large firms are erecting  permanent buildings on Victoria  Avenue which is the main business street of the city and atpre-  sehtare doing business in temporary structures. Pv Burns & Co.  have their meat -market in a box  car^m^neC^^  Canadian Bank of Commerce are  doing buiness in a tent. Most of  the firms whose "shops were on  Victoria Ave are now doing business in tents, etc., onPellatt Ave  in the vicinity of the. Coal company's offce. As a means of protecting the town's existence further, the fire limits have been  extended two blocks in every direction.  The reliet work-is said by the  local visitors to be carried ou admirably. Meals are provided between 7 o'clock and 10 in the  morning and between 4 and 7 in  the evening. Visitors to Fernie  find it advantageous to goto  Hosmer in the evening returning  in the 'morning but the Fernie  people are in tents everywhere,  dvery lawn containing four and  often five tents.  As an illustration of the condition in which the people there  found themselves after the fire,  one of the officials of the fire department came intoiCranbrook on  Tuesday of this week to meet his  wife who had been taken there to  the hospital. They had four  children. One he had found at  Hosmer, another at Coal Creek, a  third had been located at Michel,  aud on arriving at Cranbrook he  learned that thefourth was in the  hospital there with Lhe mother.  However, Fernie is recovering  and its eagerness to assume its  old position is remarkable. Within a year they claim the town  will be completely rebuilt. On  the 15th inst, the Crow's Nest  Pass Coal Co. will have a pay.roll  amounting to over $200,000. The  coke ovens were doing business  again before the fire had ceased  to rage in tbe line of 100 box cars  that had started to burn iu the  conflagration. The heat of this  fire is so intense that the wheels  of tbe cars have been melted by it  and flattened out. Early this  week the Great Northern bridge  was completed, its construction  having been ruined day and night.  The C.P.R. line is not damaged  outside of Fernie.   The smelter, of the B. C. Copper Co. this week treated 13,901  tans of ore, distributed as follows: Mother Ln-de, *J,40S tons;  Oro Denoro, 3,622 tons; others,  588 tons.  CORKJCSPONDBNCE.  Mrs. M. W.

Greenwood.,  What might have been a most  disastrous fire occurred last night  about 9.30 in the   machine shop  of  the  Dominion   Copper  Co's  smelter at  Boundary Falls.    As  it was, the fire entirely destroyed  the machine shop and blacksmith  i*  shop, entailing a loss estimated  by Mr. Roosa this . morning a t ~  from $25,000 to $30,000. Only  the hearty, well directed work of  the men employed at the smelter  and the company's excellent wafer*  ~er supply saved the smelter and  offices from going.  The building destroyed was a  frame structure about 100x30 feet  and  was, situated between the  trestle nnd a temporary machine  shop and quite near  the   blower  room.   The shop  was  equipped  with a lathe 24in x 20 ft, a smaller lathe 16in x lOtt., a Cincinn-  atti Radial   Drill*   a   threading  machine, a planer, a shaper, and  electric motor, and a   full  equipment of tools and was considered  to be, it is said, the best   in  the  Boundary.   The building was insured in one of the Ceperly Rounsfell &  Co. companies   but   Mr.  Roosa did not carer to make   any  statement of the  insurance  this  morning beyond  that  all  their  plant was sufficiently insured.  The big furnace was let out at  the smelter on Tuesday night but  it is expected that the company  will tomorrow begin to receive  its regular coke supply and that  -ite-^utnaco-r^Kill be blqwn.tn  again an Sunday night or Monday morning. '    '  The Smelter of the Dominion  Copper Co. this week treated  3,099 tons, distributed as follows:  Brooklyn 532, Rawhide" 1,267  Sunset 365, Mountain Rose 42  tons.

Per Ykak    2 00  Six Months 1 25  To Foreign Countries 2 SO  Editof  A. D. Macfarlank  FRIDAY.   AUGUST 14,1908  CANADA AND THE EMPIRE*  The conception of Canada as a  nation within the Empire is constantly taking a greater hold on  the people of the Dominion. The  term "colony" is resented as implying a subserviency that is not  ours. Even our large dailies such  as the Hamilton Spectator which  is known over Canada for the  brightness of its editorial columns, however, stumble in ignorance over the constitutional possibility of such an idea. Recently  the Toronto Star set the Spectator right on this point in an editorial worth quoting. It is as follows :  The Hamilton Spectator takes  exception to the remark made by  Sir Wilfrid Laurier at the Quebec banquet. "The colonies acknowledged the authority of the  British crown, but no other authority." The Spectator says :  "This is of a piece with his perpetual dreaming of Canadian independence, sometimes cloaked,  but never abandoned, and not always secluded." It adds that Sir  Wilfrid means to elevate Canada  into a position of equality with  Great Britain "as if Great Britain and Canada had the one nominal monarch, and there was no  other connection between them���  like Norway and Sweden in days  not long gone by.   In so speaking  he chooses to ignore the fact that  the charter of Canada is an Act  of the Imperial Parliament ; that  the Governor-General is chosen  by the Ministry of the day in  Great Britain and responsible to  the Secretary of State for the  Colonies; and that, although -a  good deal of latitude has been  permitted for well understood reasons, the only difference between  Canada, Australia, etc.,' on the  one hand, and the crown colonies  on the other, is that in the one  class autonomy under the supervision of the Imperial Parliament  is permitted, while in the other  the authority of that Parliament  is more directly exercised." .,  The Spectator is talking of the  theory, while Sir Wilfrid is talking of the practical working ot  our institutions. It is true that  our charter, the British North  America Act, is an Act of. the  Imperial Parliament, but it is to  all intents audpu'rposes of an irrevocable' character. Tbe British  Parliament has abandoned for all  time all but a small part of its  legislative authority over Canada.  It would not, and virtually could  not, make a tariff for Canada, or  impose a tax upon Canada, or  make alterations in the laws of  Canada, relating to education, or  commerce,' or municipal administration, or property aud civil  rights or any of the subjects  which by the Confederation Act  are allotted either to the Dominion  or to the provinces. In all these  respects Canada does stand upon  an equality with the United  Kingdom, and the power of th*-*  Canadian Parliament and legislatures is as absolute as that of  the Imperial Parliament. This  state of affairs is not "permitted."  It is inevitable ; and it is just as  inevitable that in the process of  development the position of Canada within the Empire will be  one of complete equality with the  United Kingdom.  its tariff, it has insisted on recognizing the rights ot every producer���farmer and miner as well  as manufacturer. The Transcript says ;     '   - .  One of the   significant   omissions of the Dominion Parliament,  just prorogued, ^ras its failure to  increase   the   duty on  woollens,  even though .'the^'manufacturers  represented the industry . as   virtually on its last legs as the   result of foreign  competition.    In  stating the position of   the.  government, Sir Wilfrid Laurier, the  Canadian   Premier,    said: "In a  country with the climate of Can-1 pies reitiaius ever a problem  ada. the cost of woollen clothing  becomes a question of very great  importance.    A   proposal  to increase the taxes on what might be  called a necessity of life naturally  arouses much oppositton  among  the consumers and their representatives.    .    .    .    We can  assure  the   manufacturers   that  we are  fully appreciative of this industry,  and   that   if   we   cannot at this  stage meet their wishes, it is because we "are obliged to   consider  the wishes of all classes throughout the country."  This concise statement epitomizes the frame of mind in which  the Liberal Government under  Laurier always has approached  the subject of tariff revision.  Canada is a protective country,  but the government has set its  face steadfastly against the policy which would recognize the  producer as the exclusive interest  to be considered in levying tariff  duties. The pressure for higher  duties put upon the government  by the manufacturers-' has .been  continual and terrific, but the  Laurier ministry, while diplomatically yielding at times and in  studied measure, never has permitted the dictation of customs  duties by any one interest.  the time the whistle blows; is usually complaining because his  wage envelope does not grow  heavier.  In 18^6, there were in Canada  11,265 "convictions for drunkenness, in/1906, the number had increased to 25,110. The Victoria  Colonist will not suggest that  this due to the policy of the Laurier administration but rather to  the marked failing off in the ef-  sorts made by organizations to  promote temperance. Surely the  Colonist will soon be converting  the Tories !  BRAIN LEAKS.  (Selected.)  The "water  Will Power.  wag-on" is run. by  "Bad Luck" gets the blame for  a lot of laziness.

W,   Mason   called     attention to   Asiatic   immigration  into Canada.    Mr. Seely   replied  that the future of the Empire de-  depended on the step we*now took.  The government   warmly  appreciated the manner   wherein   the  Canadian   government   had met  ���hem; also the work of Mr. Mackenzie King,     he   hoped   there  would be a   common   agreement.  He appealed to the House not to  adopt a superior' attitude and say  that any citizen of   the    Empire  should be free to go to any   part  thereof.    The colonies   must  be  allowed   to   exclude   whom they  thought desirable.    At the same  time he urged the colonies to treat  with the utmost   generosity   the  Asiatics   already  therein.      He  agreed that the   question should  go to the imperial secretariat.

Sometimes a stranger sees our  faults or virtues more clearly than  we do ourselves. There are Canadians who refuse to see in 'the  tariff policy of the Laurier government anything but a continuation of the old N.P. under which  Canada ran into a time of distress  as great or greater than that in  which she found herself at its beginning. Recently the Boston  Transcript touched on the subject and put the emphasis where  it was needed.

Then why does not  everybody *ake Cod Liver Oil and  Iron ? Simply because most people  cannot take the Oil and few can digest  the Iron in any ordinary form. These  difficulties have been entirely removed  by the introduction of FERROL, in  which the Iron is scientifically combined with the Oil, rendering the Oil  palatable and the Iron digestible.  While     /  FERROL  is manufactured from the best quality  ofiCod Liver Oil (the whole of the Oil)  and. is richer in oil than any other  eniuhion,and while it contains just the  right quantity of the best form of Iron  and' Phosphorus, it is* so scientifically  prepared that not one person in a thousand finds nny trouble in taking it,  and infants digest it without difficulty.  Moreover'the well-established value of  the Oil and Iron is immensely'  enhanced by the process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to be wondered at that  physicians everywhere have fully  endorsed FERROL and used it largely  in their practice. FERROL is invaluable for the treatment of any kind of  Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for  wasting diseases it has no equal, and  <��Yoti Know What  Yoti Tak-ft-*'  The Best Appointed Working men's Hotel in the City  Lighted    throughout   with  Dleotricity.

The general expenditure in the whole i of  -.���.���-���' -' > .���'.������-.- ���' ���  Canada for such purposes has increased frem $198,098 in 189o :tb  $547,473 in 1907. As will be  briefly explained in the following  statements, British ���'Columbia-  has been-'given' a fair share of  of this increase. .  British Columbia, the same as  the' rest of Canada, has benefitted by the rapid development of  agricultural organization in Ottawa, under a practical Minister  of Agriculture, through the wise  legislation from time to time introduced, . the valuable /.experiments conducted and object lessons given, thereby enabling the  best information to sbe available  and promptly and widely distributed. '''. ���  A large correspondence is carried on between the chiefs of the  various divisions established by  the Minister and the farmers of  British Columbia, who ,are thus  put in a position to obtain up-to-  date and practical advice. This  help is'of vital importance and is  available to the1 farmers who  ���.choose to write for it to the departmental specialists in charge  of each particular class of work.'  Besides the services of a general character the Department have  -sent their   leading  officers from  Ottawa to the Province to conduct educational campaigns, and  have representatives residing in  British Columbia for nearlyevery  branch of the Ottawa Department.  A few particulars in regard  to  these services, in so far  as they  are applied to British Columbia  will no. dpubt be interesting, and j  herein follow :v V  At the Agasslz Experimental  Farm there has been ah expenditure varying from $8,269 i_-1896-  97 to $10,9>1 in 19Q7-08. It reached $13,455 in 1901-2*^ on account  of the new buildings that were  added in that year.  Special attention has been devoted at the farm to orchard and  garden work and an exhibit has  been sent regularly to the annual  exhibition at New Weltminsteri  The Live, Stock Branch.���In  1900 the Minister of Agriculture  appointed to take charge of the  Live Stock interests of the Dominion, a: Commissioner who soon  extended his operations to British  Columbia. In the last six years  an expenditure of $12,437.83 has  been incurred " in this^ province  alone in providing judges tor  fairs and speakers for conventions  and in grants to Live Stock Associations made through the Commissioner..

Had the  expenditure been more liberal and  the organization more complete  the results might have been different.  In order to stamp out the disease, a rigid quarantine was instituted in the area affected and  anim alsdiseased,'and in contact  with the diseased, were slaughtered and compensation paid. The  system had been successfully followed before in stamping out Hog  Cholera when that ������ disease prevailed, to an alarming extent, especially in the Counties of Essex  and Kent. Ont. While $36,029.35  was paid for compensation, in  1902-3, the sum paid for compensation gradually decreased year  by year until it reached $2,811.43  in 1907-08, when the disease had  practically completely disappear.  ed. "'  v    7_7' ���''���'-  The same system was applied  to the whole of Canada for glanders in horses.  In British Columbia, owing to a  violent outbreak of this disease  in lumbering camps in the North,  no less than $80,330.10 was spent  for compensation and general expenses in 1906, but the following  year, 1907 the expenditure had already been reduced to $27,806, and  ')���''������'������:     ' '    . ' '  the tendency is a decrease towards  thfe vanishing point.  The expenditure of the Veterinary branch from 1896 to 1907  for British. Columbia has totalled  over $80,000, the work done being  an entirely new work instituted  by the Department.  In the dairying branch also  special-attention has been given  to B.C. One month after the  present Minister assumed the control of the Department at Ottawa  he sent Mr. J. A: Ruddick, the  present Commissioner to British  Columbia to.conduct a travelling  dairy through the principal districts of the province and at the  annual meeting of the Provincial  Exhibition at New Westminster.  During that three month's tour  the creameries then in existence  were visited and advice and help  given them. ;  In 1901 a similar work was  again undertaken, -conducted by  Mr. J. E- Hopkins and an assistant, and again in 1905 when Mr.  W, A. Wilson, representing this  branch of the Department of Agriculture, conducted demonstrations of butter making ip different  parts of the country and at the  New Westminster Exhibition.  In l%6a permanent official was  engaged to organize" and supervise Cow Testing Associations in  the province. Seyen associations  have already been organized, but  the services of the supervisor  were dispensed with and other  arrangements  made  with local  experts to do -the* milk testing.  The annual expenses in connection "with this work would amount  to about $800.  ' In 1902 Mr. Maxwell Smith was  appointed as a permanent Dominion Fruit Inspector for the Province of British Columbia. He  has been engaged there ever since.  His salary and expenses amount  to about $1,700 per year. Mr.  McNeill, the present Chief pf the  fruit division,and his predecessor  Mr. MacKinnon.'have both visited British Columbia in the interests of frnit growing.  In connection with the second  Conference of Fruit Growers held  at Ottawa in March; 1906, the expenses of five delegates were paid  from British Columbia, amount-  in all to jie'arly $1,000, or considerably over one-third the cost of  the Conference.      ;  In the Seed Branch, which was  Btarted eight years ago a repre  sentative was in 1905 given special charge of inspection work in  B.C.and was stationed at Calgary.  Last year the trade in clover and  grass seed was made the subject  of special investigation and this  year, the work is being continued.  In this as in all the departments  much help is given in Institute  meetings.  From the preceding statements  it seems justifiable to conclude  that the general policy of the  Department, so ' far as British  Columbia is concerned, has been  characterized by a wise expenditure of public moneys for necessary purposes. That expenditure has been increased with the  increasing business and development of the farming interests of  the province, with due regards to  the needs of .the farming population and the proportion of that  population to the rest of Canada.  A lot of people worry about uh-  blanketed horses on a cold day  and never give a thought to unfad  and unclothed children.  lhe man who thinks tbat the  world owes him a living is going  to meet trouble if he fails to start  out on a collecting tour.
