Dear Sir:  Should you find the following  of interest, I trust   that you will see  your way clear to publish the same.  Tours   very truly,  J.  R.TERRY,  Sec. B. J3.-Poultry Association^  - Owing to the efforts of theB. C. Poultry Association the authorities at Ottawa  c.  are at last beginning to realize that the  poultry breedere of this Province have a  genuine grievance.  Several resolutions have been fqr ward-  id to various officials at Ottawa, asking  hat the OontagionsJDiHsases of Animals  *otbe amended so that the Dominion  Veterinary Inspectors could* inspect all  live and dead poultry entering the Province. Considerable liverpqiiltry'are being imported, obstenBibly for the pur**  pose of killing for the markets, but are  however, being sold to settlers at reduced prices. In some consignments the  majority of the fowls have been found  to be suffering from oue or the others of  rhe contagious diseases attaoking poultry. These fowls have been sold broad-  oast throughout the Province? the result being that in some districts whioh  have heretofore beeu healthy, poultry  breeders have had theso diseases attaok  their   flocks.  Word has just been received by the  Seorotary .of the Provincial Poultry  Association, stating that Mr. J. H. Hare  of .the-Poultry Division* Department of  Agriculture, Ottawa, is to visit the  Proviiaoo and mako an investigation into thp matter. In the meantime, the  Provincial Association is leaving no  stono unturned to toouro redress, and  in Maroh all ofthe affillutod Associations  .numbering 28, aro forwarding a resolution to tho Veterinary Dlrootor General, dealing with tho matter.  Sir George Willis  Dominion of Canada, and formerly premier of the province of Ontario, died  Saturday, March 7th after an ilhiesa  lasting several weeks. He was born in  1841.  By profession a lawyer, Sir George  was known popularly as "the father of  tbe new Ontario'' owing to activity in  the development of that province. He  was recognized as one of the best public speakers in the Dominion.  He was called to the senate of Canada  in 1907 and was knighted by King  George in 1910.  \ Sir George was a prolific writer on  educational subjects, temperance and  contemporary history.  A little over a week ago Sir George  had a relapse, and had been lying in a  state of coma ever since, uniil Thursday of last week when he had a return  to consciousness. He was then clear  and rational in his mind ond waB able  to talk to his visitors. Friday morning  he was still conscious, and Lady Ross  and other relatives Bpent some time  with him.  Sir George became worse Friday  afternoon about four o'clock and from  that time he was unconscious, witb  more rapid failure at five o'clock Saturday morning. It was evident at that  hour that Sir George was sinking tast  w^v. ������������c passSu. peacefully awuy about  eight o'clock. Oiily Dr. Greer, a nurse  and hi9 valet, were at the deathbed.  Lady Ross had been sent for, but Sir  George had passed away before her  arrival.  . In politics Sir George was a Liberal,  and represented: West Middlesex in the  House .of Commons from 1872 to 1883.  In that year he became a solicitor and  entered the Mowat Cabinet as Minister  of Education. This post he retained  when Mr. Hardy succeeded Mr. Mowat,  and, on the latter's retirement, Sir  George became Premier, in Ootober,  1899. On the defeat of his party in 1905  he led the opposition in the Houbo until  his elevation to the Senate, in 1907. v  ill'' I In i \-um**mm^**i.u. i li tiVi'ij m, .11 ������i un... 1.1 iiil rn ii'ii'i nn i. i'i' ' ir i' -J*mmmmmmm**  UUU  THi4 VIM, FASTEST  OF SIX ICE YACHTS  Rosolvod that Oriontalr- Immigration  in to Canada ahould cease istho question  for the noxt dobato to bo held on Wednesday tho 18th Tho debater's aro J.

Iu the event of a worl  Commission,  a   summary of man   sustaining  the  injuries  which;we print this morning,  is a document of very great  interest, the result of careful  investigations made regarding  working conditions iu the different trades and industries  in the Province.    Of the   wis-  of a character which prevent  his working for a time, he is  to receive so much cbmpen  sation weekly, the amount to  be based on his earnings. An  iusurauce scheme of this character will require very careful  dom of some of the recomend-1 working out. It appears from  ations we hardly  think  there the report or rather from that  will be two opinions, but there  are others that will require lo  be further inquired into before  they are incorporated in legislation. Perhaps, excepting  the recommendation dealing  with thc e?:cl'vTS!on of Ar.intics  the one which will arouse  greatest interest is thai which  urges the establishment of thc  system of compulsory State iu-  surane for workmen who sustain injuries. Such insurance  it is suggested,should be managed by aboard-    The cm ploy-  summary which we have received that the entire amount  to be payed into the insurance  fund is to come direct from  the employs? and to be deducted by him from the wages of  his workmen. Tt may ho that  the ( suggestion means that  both the employer and thc  employee shall pay a proportionate amount into the fund  at stated intervals. There is  uo doubt that tlie recommendations dealing with State insurance:   will     arouse     wide-  doubt will be carefully canvassed before any legislation  is introduced.  The recommendation which  urges a fortnightly   pay  day  appears a  wise   one, and the  reasons given for it are sound;  as also is that which proposes  new   methods   regarding  the  issuance of time cheques.    It  was  to be  assumed  that the  commission would   not go on  record   in  the matter   of an  eight-hour   day, as   this  is a  subject that can  ^hore  rightfully be dealt with by the Federal  authorities.    What   has  been said about the minimum  wage is interesting.    It does  uot seem subject on which  it  is  desirable  that   legislation  should be introduced, because  so tnanv  different  conditions  mt  prevail in different localities  and the establishment of a  minimum wageinthe Province  as a whole might place British  Columbia in a position where  it would be impossible for the  trades aud industries here to  compete with those in the rest  of the Dominion. Closer iup-  ervisiou of the conditions under which men work in railroad construction and logging  camps is advocatcl. Tn this  connection' there are many  useful suggestions which will  receive close attention.  Thoro aro mnnv other feat  ure occossion. It is sufficient  now to say that Mr.' Hi G*  Parson, the chairman and his  colleagues appear to have devoted their best energies to  the work with which they were  intrusted, p might have beeu  thought that the commission  would have shown a tendency  to avoid controversial matters  as far as was compatible with  their duties, but j on the ��������� contrary, this has jiot beeiii th<*  case. The report sets out the  contentions of the employer  and the employee and then  the conclusions  reached   by  the investigating board.
