Glad to get Back Home and

WRONG    WITH   IT    BRING    IT   TO   A
Out in Uie West. Where People-are
Alleged to Lie, Steal and Cheat
for Their Town's Sake
The, Toll owing from the. Mail and
.iCinpirc is refreshing. Tf there is any
city on eiirili ean heat Toronto in the
inas|ics of booming, then the columns
of its greal riailicK'dc'iliug with Cuba It
.sloi'ks and oilier gamliliiig devices
have not been as inlluential ,is intended
But we g-ive the leiiderfoo(\ rep. rf
on tins west herewith:
''The west is truly the land of tlie
puhlicicy man, says Mr. Joseph E.
Thompson, Coinniissionerof Indn-arie^
and LJulilicity for Toronto, just returned home after attending the Orange
Grand Lodge in Vancouver. Mr.
Thompson told the Mail and Empire
Unit he was now better able to judpje
the land values of Toronto than ever
"Do you mean that our prices here
are rather stiff?
"SUIT! Not at all. In comparison
with what real estate in the west is
.bringing property in Toronto is being
given away at the present time. What
do you think* of a firm in Vancouver
refusing 553,000 fora building that cost
them S3,COO six years ago ?, You don't
hear of that often in Toronto,, I am
becter able now to put up a good,
strong, illustrated lecture on Toronto
land values."
I encountered publicity  com mission-
ers, agents, secretaries and representa
tives   wherever   I   went.       Even little
Nelson,  B.  C.   has-oue or two.    They
spring    up    strongly ■   around     Fort
William   and  increase in numbers and
persistency     as.   you     go     westward.
Reaching    Vancouver    on    a   Sunday
evening I was greeted by a  delegation
of   them   as  I   rose   from my   bed    on
Monday morning-.     "Didn't I think of
settling there ?'"     ."M'ght they be per-
"mitted   to  show   me  why  I    should."'
"If they managed to pursiiade me that
I should,   might they   go   further and
put  me  wise  lo some  very  desirable
real estate."     These were a few of the
questions buzi.ed  at me.     And  there
seems to be a gentleman of  that ilk at
every second door.
"The Westerners certainly know
how to boost their city. Farther to
the south in one famous city built on a
hill there is an unwritten injunction,
T-,ic, steal or cheat for Seattle,' and
the spirit of the same has been wafted
northwards By the way, the good
citizens of Seattle obey more than
three commands. They also pay taxes
for Sent tie-about 31 mills on the dollar."
—-Tin- publicity-ngetiHs-in-t he heyday
in Victoria, where they spend really
more on booming Ihe city than in Toronto. Kleven thousand dollars was
their bill last year. And Vancouver,
Medicine Hat and other pbcoa are
good spender.-, as well.
The great and perplexing question
at present in the west is how long will
the real estate' boom last ? We had a
pretty einply one and disastrous one in
Toronto about fifteen years ago, you
will remember.' Well, in rny opinion,
they have loss cause for a boom in the
west now than wc had then. And
that was 1 it:lo enough. The banks
have shut down tight ou western'real
estate-propositions. You can't raise a
dollar from 11.em on that commodity.
Regina spent over $2,500,000 last year
on building permits, ntid it hasn't
much over 7,000 population.

"About the wheat situation. Of
course, everyone talks with habitual
optimism- about the crop, but when
you get a real opinion it simmers down
to this—that everything depends on
,the length of the summer season and a
long season is needed. The growth i.s
now three or i'osr weeks behind and
the harvest ought to be in by Aug. 25.
If they strike an early frost there will
be a great shortage, undoubtedly.

<>ne of our most prominent visitors this week was Mr. Geo. L.
Walker, of Bexing'ton,Mass., who
accompanied by Mrs. Walker, is
making a tour of the Boundary.
Mr. Walker is Kditor and part
owner of the Boston Commercial,
and his weekly letters in that
paper, dealing- with the copper
situation, constitute a prominent
feature. Mr. Walker's views as
expressed through his "Weekly
Copper Letter," are eagerly
sought after by mining men aud
brokers, and are widely distributed.
In addition to being a newspaper man of experience, Mr.
Walker is a geologist ,arul keeps
in touch with mining' development generally.
While in Greenwood Mr.
Walker looked over tlie local
smelting plants, and some of the
mines and then went to Phoenix
to continue his study of the district.
Mr. Walker is very confident'
that the price of copper is to
remain tirm for some time. lie
said he had discussed the matter
with those most thoroughly conversant with the metals and-espec-
ially copper, and the opinion' was
•reneral that copper would not sell
down to 15 cents ag-ain in a generation.
This is Mr. Walker's first visit
to British Columbia, aud he and
Mrs. Walker, who is a Canadian,
thoroughly enjoyed their trip
west, even as they were eujoying-
their stay iu the Boundary.

There seems little ground  for doubt that their ores will be  smelted near to their properties.  Whether this . will be done at  Greenwood or some other point is  not of greatest moment. That it  will be done eventually in the  district is chief consideration.  Now thatore appears in plenty,  that transportation rates are reasonable, that fuel supplies seem  assured and that prices are satisfactory tlie industry would appear to have entered upon a  career of unquestioned promise.  The industry is on a profitable  basis, the district's welfare is  guaranteed. What towns and  what people shall share most in  this prosperity depends in the last  analysis largely upon the spirit  of the towns and the people themselves.  ON THE MOVE  From all parts of Canada come  reports of business activity.  From ocean to ocean the people  are busy. In the mines, in the  sawmills, at railway construction?  in manufacturing establishments,  in everything and everywhere the  people are busy. And they are  busy at remunerative prices  From every centre of the Dominion, the reply made to the  =Dep.'i}^ie*^^_Lff*^p^sJnatuiry^as  Politics is like checkers.

Thi* local holders of Japanese  securities will not be overjoyed  at the tumble the Mikado's paper  has taken.  Pki'miei- McBkide denies that  he said "breakfast to perdition."  We didn't think that sounded like  him anyway.  The heart that sees only good  in others is a well-spring of peace.  The one that sees only defects is  like a graveyard full of decayed  and decaying things.  Premier' McBride's new version of "breakfast to perdiction"  is>. likely to become a classic. In  the vernacular breakfast was  the last thing mentioned but the  Premier has the good taste to  take his early on the trip.

Recently one was  navigated about over the heads  of the Parisians for three-quarters of an hour, sailing equally  well, with, . against, or broadside  to the wind.  It looks now as if prison bars  were likely to fence Harriman  from the people's pasture on  which he has been feeding for  years past.

The mines are  all busy, the smeiters are busy,  the railroads arc rushed.

The agricultural yield  of   the   magnificent fields yearly  grows   greater.     The  output of  increasing and enlarging factories  yearly grows larger.   The output  of   the   mines   increases yearly.  Railroad mileage is being rapidly  extended and new fields are being  opened up.     The  population   is  increasing  bj* leaps and bounds,  increasing not only by birth-rate,  but  by   the acquisition of thousands of the best from  the United  States and Europe.   Bank capital  is growing and the savings of the  people being  added  to.     Homes  are   being reared at a gratifying  rate,.

So  may it be.  This a district of 10,(100 people   jg  at  inost,   means S300  per year  for every man, woman and child  in the district.

The death of Mr. Samuel McAllister,
for forty-seven years a teacher in the
Toronto public schools, is an event
that may fairly ask some passing attention. Mt. McAllister retired from
active work only last December, and
consequently, had not long enjoyed the
evening of his days. It is useful to reflect on the almost incalculable benefits which such a career confers upon
the community in which it is tran
aacted. It is of course true'that all
good work has a beneficial inlluence
on the people amongst whom it is
done. It is so specially and discoverably true, however, in the case of a
capable and conscientious teacher that
the departure of one such is a fitting
time to proclaim the obligations. Both
here and far from here there are men
who derived some of their soundest
and moat sterling infltiioe-js from
Samuel McAllister. They feel their
debt and have acknowledged it, bi t
even if we did not know" these particular instances we would be assured ol
the quiet, steady power for good that
radiates from' srich a life throughout
veins and arteries of the community.
It is an occasion foi 'musing, for
thought both on the part of the teacher.-a id the society which they serve.
Such a calling- ought nevr to becorre
a mere conventional means of earning
a livelihood. By every art and effort
its. moral enthusiasm should be sustained. That is the individual's side
of it. It is equally incumbent on the
community that it should not treat him
as if he were the mere earner of one of
its .grudging salaries. "He should be
steadily recognized for what he is, the
greatest source for light i.nd leading
and uplifting that lies in the way of
the young in all grades of the social
scheme. Everyone recognizes the tre
rueadoua important e of parentage, but
it must also be recognized that the
work of the teacher is often* to neutralize the misdirection and misknowledge
of home. He should possess the directing'traditions and the wide culture
that may be lacking at home; the broad
mindednesa and the world outlook that
cannot be expected in all walks of life,
put which we -may fairly expect our
schools and schoolmasters to supply.
If it were more common to cross-examine ourselves in this respect public
education would be on a better footing
'than it is today. If parents would ask
themselves under what school influences their children are spending
those precious years there would be
lesB difficulty in achieving the ideals
at which educational reformers aim.
The influence of a wise and ever-green
teacher in a community is iinmeasure-
ablc and, humanly speaking, infinite.

Anyone having doubts ;is to capability of the,soil in this locality to produce
abundant crops of fruit could not do
better than pay a visit to those orchards
near town that are old enough to begin
bearing. We took a look at several a
few days ago and were more than surprised at what we saw. Even at this
early date tlie trees arc so loaded down
with fruit that the limbs are barely
able to support it. At \V. II. A'urris's
orchard, whijh has not received the al-
tention this year that it usually yets,
the trees are literally breaking-down
with their load'of fruit, and the same
may he said of the trees at C. J
-Lundy's. and at the Riverview Farm
Co's. place, while at several other
places the comparatively few-trees that
have arrived at bearing age are pro
ducing equally good results.
As a fruit growing locality the
Kettle river valley hereabouts has 1 o
yet been fully discovered by those
1 joking for fruit lands, d<>ub 1 :ss owing lo lack of publicity. This state of
things, however, caiirotcoutituie uiu h
longer, as newcomers are crowding us
both -on the east nnd on the we.-1.
Land iu this district has not reached
the fancy prices demanded in IheoUh r
fruit growing localities,- and .small
holdings are within the reach of the
average person. This will ultimately
have its effect, and we predict that h*
next few years wi|l see the entire valley devoted tn fruit raising. U id this
been attempted earlier, there would
have been a very different story to tell.
However, it is better late than never.—

"I want to say that Zam-Buk
ia the finest healing balm on
earth." So writes Mrs. M. J.
Beers, of L'Orignal (Ont.) She
adds: "I had a bad open sore on
my nose, which for many years
refused to heal, and caused me
many hours and hours of pain,
especially in the hot weather. At
different times five doctors treated
the wound, and I was also in the
hospital, but I could not get a
cure. I recently tried Zam-Buk
and a few" boxes healed the
wound. I am 73 years of age, but
in all my long life I have never
met anything to equal Zam-Buk
as a healer of skin sores and diseases."
Zam-Buk also cures blood
