WEEKLY COMMENT BY  The Forest Service of the Province  of Quebec now employs a total of six-  professionally trained forests. Nearly  all these men have received their professional training at the Forest School  at Laval "University, Quebec.  During the summer of 1913, the  Forestry Branch had fourteen parties  in the field, each in charge of a teachni-  oally trained forester. The undertaken  by ten of these parties was a valuation  survey of unlicened Crown timber  lands. Of such'lands, there are approximately 125,000 square miles in the  Province of Quebec. The Crown lands  under license aggregate approxiffi^tel^^^g-g^  70,000 square miles. The revenue from  these lands during the past year has aggregated nearlv one and three quarter  million dollars.  In addition to the ten parties engaged  as about, four parties were engaged in  an examination licenced lands,- to  determine the boundaries' of permanent forest reserves. It is the policy oJC  the Quebec Govenment to segregate  nonagricnltural forest lands into permanent forests reserves as rapidly as  the necessary information can be  secured. ���������O.

One peculiar unfortunate  condition pertaining to the submergence of this land is the season of tB^  year at which it comes, more common  ly in late June and July, so late tba't���������  it is not possible to sow any grain  crops that will mature thesame season.  A second condition equally unfortunate is, the depth ofthe submergence  and its continuity. Some seasons"the  overflow submerges much of t-ieland  to the depth oC several feet, and the  water covers the land usually for several we.-ks. This means that no"kind  of cultivated crop plantee beforethe  time of the submergence can continue  to live. ' The amount of similar'Overflow land on the Canadian side is" even  greater. . ^-*---  The caaamjat the overflow ' is' the  impounding of the water of the river  in. the Kootenai Lake, which is a river  lake.

At present it is [impracciDie from a uii-  ancial standpoint to reduce- this Waste  as there is no market for the tree tops,  culls and weed-trees left in lumbering  operations and only a very limited one  for tho bark, slabs sawdust, ekgings  and trimmings of milling operations.  The department of the Interior is recruiting the staff* of its Forest Products  Laboratories recently established in  connec ion with the Forestry Branch,  with skilled mechanical and ohetrical  engineers and by constant experimentation it is hoped to find a commercial use  for these prod acts.  Already a good start has been made  The laboratories, which are operated in  connection with McGill University contain the most complete equipment on  the contiuent for making timber tests'.  It is planned to stbmit- each Canadian  wood to over a thousand tests in crder  to establish as complete tables ^ of the  mechanical properties of these? woods as  Notwithstanding the fact that financial conditions are not at present favorable to any comprehensive program of  publio works, the road extensions and  improvements to be made this year in  the Revelstokb distriot are extremely  substantial aud will constitute a genu,  luoimprovetaent to the already excellent  system of roads in the distriot. Not  only will the improvenments and extensions to the. road syutembo considerable,  but they, will bo permanent. Ono feature of the roads constructed In the  Revelstoko district is their substantial  ohnraoter.

Timber has often been shunned as a  structural material material because no  reliable figured regarding its Btrength  were available, and when complete tests  brive been made it iaj.egorped jas owtain  that a demand will be created tor some  of Canada's tree species whice are now  left in the woods as valueless. ,.  The Forestry Branch of the Department of the Interior, Ottawa, of which  these laboratories are one development  has rocenty issued a oiroular describing  the various lines of investigation to be  followed at these laboratories. Not '..tie  least important will be to develop chemical methods for utilizing minor wood  wastes and another oiroular by the engineer In charge of this worSfdeals  with the general aspect of the -subjebt.

W hile attempting the arrest  of a tramp ^yesterday a C. P.  R. detective took a chance for  Bis life, the Weary Willie  drawing a gun and pointing  it at the officer. A quick  move   ana  tne   weapon  knocked from the tramp's  hand. Most likely this was  all that prevented another  tragedy.  The dective presented his  prisoner to the magistrate,  due consideration, decided that a month in jail  would be about the limit of  punishment which the offence  warranted.  Next thing we kuow some  magistrate in a similar case  somewhere will be letting the  prisoner go free and ordering  the police officer to pay him a  gratuity for life for having  failed to pull the trigger. ���������  Calgary Herald.  ! ed at that stage of British Columbia's history, when mining  j was in its infancy and its extent unproven, and the prospector shared the hardship  common to other callings in  the pioneer days. But with  the development of country,  through government assistance to agriculture and other  commercial activities, those  really really responsible for  the present proud position  that mining occupies in the  province have never been encouraged, in fact thc many  petty obstacles strewn along  the path of the prospectors  have been irritating and increasingly  discouraging.  Now that the time is draw-  Speaking in the legislature,' ing near   when the   Duke of  Lome Campbell, M. P. P. for Connaught   will   retire  from  Rossiand, stated that the  prospector had been driveu  out of the country, and ho  urged measures to encourage  the office of Governor-General, it may not be amiss to  mention that a fear, expressed  by   not a  few   people at the  a renewal of prospecting. The time of his appointment,  has  mines ot liritish | not  been borne  out bv facts.

That some people  would have been glad to have  surrounded the Duke and  Duchess with an exclusive  circle may be taken for granted, but it very soon became  apparent that Their Royal  Highnesses had no mind for  that sort of thing. While  animated by every due sense  of its own dignity, the Royal  House is democratic in the  best sense of the word. Its  members put on no side.  Many are the antedotes of the  late King Edward which  show this to be true. Those  who remember King George  when he was here, know that  he is a plain simple, siucere  gentlemen, haviug no undue  sense of his personal importance, and animated by a  strong sense of duty. We had  a news item recently about  the Prince of Wales which  shows him to be just a decent  wholehearted fellow, assuming  nothing because he happens  to be heir to thc crowu. The  impression conveyed by thc  Duke of Connaught is that he  is a   man   who   has  no other  idea  thau   to   discharge  his  dutv as he undertakes it.
