The latter route  would open the Okanagan Valley by  wagon road    to    such  places c.n the  way'to-Revelstoke as Bowio, Malak-  wa,     Craig ellachie,      Taft,    Huhwah,  Griffin Lake,    Three Valley and Clan  William.     Such a wagon road was in  existence years ago, but when the C.  P. R. came the   company quietly ex-  appropriated  the wagon "oad for  its  road-bed, and for years the-pc, vie of  some of.these places have never been   ~~  able to get in or out except via the"  railway.

For    years    the   people-j0f '  .Mara   have    been/  placed at a great  "  [disadvantage. s   They have one of the  finest agricultural (liVur'ct.s in the', dominion, yet they ..have -been forced to  pay the penalty of being placed as it  were in  a hole:  a-13-mile   !rive-from" -  Knderby to Mara and a 13-mile drive  '.ack again    to    get    upon the maia  irunk road the ..isjh  U *. iri.trict   The  result has been    most    disastrous to"    '  that rich    section    of the Okanagan."  It would seem better for the Government to    make   provision for the  opening of this   road than to tackle ~  the  much   heavier    undertakiag  into -  the timber belt from Tl.rcc Vallev.'

Mr. Geo. H. Prince and Mr. A. R.

We are pleased to note that the illness of Hon. Price Ellison was not as  serious as was reported in the coast  napers. Mr. Ellison was subjected  to an attack of appendicitus, but re  Whoever says there is not any humor Jn _ thc -.suffragette, movement -is  a dull, sordid skate. The ladies of  thc Province have been preparing a  valentine for Sir Richarl McBride,  and to-morrow n deputation of them  will wait upon thc Premier and present it with their compliments.

Schmidt loft on Monday  for ChemainuR to take up his new  work as head of thc clerical department of the big sawmill there. Mr.  Schmidt made a host of frien Is during his residence in Enderby, and hc  will be greatly missed in many circles. He was an assistant Scoutmaster in the local Scout organization, which position he will nominally retain until he sees what can be  done at Chemainus in the same direction.    A sad fatality is reported from  Mabel Lake. Last Thursday evening  Chas. Preston reported at the Hupel  hotel, that while he and Geo. Isherwood were crossing the lake, carry-  the mail to Hupel from the opposite  side, they ran into treacherous ice  as they were nearing the shore and  both broke through.

Realizing how great  has been. the. .effort -.put. forth, mid  recognizing the good work the Choral  Society is doing, the Enderby public  gave "Columbus" a very enthusiastic  reception. The Opera House was  comfortably filled, and the performance elicited much praise for the able  manner in which thc opera was costumed and staged. it far exceeded  the expectations of even the most  sanguine in this respect. In point of  stage effect and costumes the performance was really first-class. As  a musical triumph it required quite  an clastic imagination to make one  feel there was nothing lacking. The  necessary strong lead voices were  mt there, "and a.s a consequence the  choruses were flat and lacked the  swing nnd sparkle so requisite to  make an opera thoroughly enjoyable.  However, there can and will be no  gainsaying this nv.ich: It was a performance upon which the Choral Society and their leader, Mr. Chapman,  can  be  most  heartily  congratulated.  Miss George as Queen Isabella,  Mr. Sutcliffe, as the King, Mrs. Turner, as the president, and Miss  Laing, as Sago Palm, were, perhaps,  the most appreciated of the cast,  though all participating seemed to  have a very true conception of their  ���������������������������%7z& rwjT^rtibjfa,  'if - J%% Mniftib  ww7&^iiwia������������������  U%a&$eG2MeJh  ime  I:'i tlio CLEANEST, SIMPLEST, and 1IEST1IOME  I"-YE, ono can buy--\VI:y you don't even liave to  know what KIND of Cloth' your Goods are m-.ulc  of.--So Mistakes iiru Impossible. -,,  Send for Free Color Curd, Story  Booklet, nnd  Booklet giving results of J-ycinj; ovor other colors.'

A   TRY  OUT  _/\_LIVIL  ,ENDERBY  m^^&ssaasi Thursday, February 13, 1913  THE ENDKRi.Y PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  #  Important Legislation Proposed  Affecting Settlers and Timber Men  Parlwimcnhiry Press Gallery, Victoria, B. 0., 1'Yb. 10.���������������������������Legislation of  extra importance as it afl'octs Lhe  settlement of the l'rovince and development of (he agricultural industry on tlio one side and augmentation of the public revenues from the  forest .asset on thc other is now before thc local parliament, having  been brought down by J-Jon. Mr. Ross  during tlie final setting of the past  week. The bills presented by thc  Minister of Lands crystallize radical  innovations in governmental policy;  indeed, they might almost he classed  as revolutionary, providing in one  case for the adoption of the principle  of free lands for bona lide settlers  and on thc other for various important amendment in the Forest Act,  the one of which will possibly attract most comment, providing for a  doubling of the royalty now payable  on timber cut from Grown lands.  Thc proposed amendment to the  Land Act provides for the granting  of free pre-emptions of surveyed  Crown lands from and after thc 31st  March proximo, pre-emptors henceforward being permitted to take up  land upon payment only of $2 for the  pre-emption record and $10 as crown  grant fee. The land and the cost of  survey are given without charge.  The policy of the past has been to  sell such pre-empted lands at a price  of $1 per acre, twenty-five per cent,  of such cost being payable within  two' years from the issuance of record,, with further annual payments of  25 cents per acre until the purchase  price of $l.per' acre be paid, - and 6  per cent interest being collectable  upon arrears." " The maximum -quantity of_ land,, which it has heretofore  been "^possible thus" to take up by the  pre-emption "/process lias- been-; 160  acres,ancl. this maximum .will remain  "t .   - -o    ��������������������������� -    .  the general stan lard of pre-emption  size under the new and progressive  legislation, power being re tai noil <o  tne Minister to refuse any application for the pre-emption which n ay  in his opinion be adverse to the i-ufolic interest, as for example, sf.o'jld  thc applicant be an Asiatic.  This radical change in thc law for  the substantial encouragement ->f settlement and the development ��������������������������� f tbe  agricultural resources of thc c. )Arv  has been for some time past under  consideration, and has had as a necessary precedent foundation the surveys of large tracts in tho.se districts now or soon to be rendered accessible by the rapid advance of railway construction operations. The  new bill will go far toward settling  up first of all the surveyed areas  which in the majority of instances  have already been reserved for preemption requirements, and in it "he  minister is further jjven power to  determine thc acreage wh'.ch may in  individual instances warrant in special localities.  There can lie no question bu' that  the departure from thc old.pre-emption plan will bear early and satisfactory fruit in thc imme'liate stimulation of settlement, many thousand  taking advantage of this last rjpor-  tunity to secure free land for agricultural purposes on the western ni".ri-  can continent.  Offsetting the revenue loss involved  in the new pre-emption policy, the  amendment to the Forest Act provides for an increase of the royalty  collected on timber cut on Crown  lands from fifty cents to one. dollar  per thousand feet, .board rnsasure-  nicnt, such increase, however, not  taking effect until, three years hence..  The bill" "also "prescribes reforms in  timber-markings,," and  increases the  annual collections for forest protection service from timber licensees,  lessees and owners of timber lands.  This impost has been one cent per  acre per annum' under the forestry  legislation of 1912, it will be one-  and one-half cent in future, the government continuing to contribute  dollar for dollar.  During committee ��������������������������� consideraffi.n of  thc bill prescribing regulations for  the establishment of crematoria in  British Columbia, Mon. Dr. Young  said: "As a medical man, I thoroughly believe in cremation as the  best method for thc disposal of the  bodies of the dead, and if the Premier would allow me to do so, I  should bring in a bill providing for  compulsory cremation in British '.'o-  lumbia." ������������������  2������������������S2S^^a  COST OF CONCESSIONS  Progressive Programme for 1913  I.

SHEAF WHEAT, 2c per sheaf;' oat  hay baled, $10 per ton; timothy hay  $20 per ton; potatoes, $10 ton. G.  Murdock, Grindrod.  j    The lumbermen of the Province are  strenuously    protesting    against  the  increase in the stumpage royalty as  proposed in the new timber bill now  before  the Provincial parliament,   by  which it is proposed that the royalty  dating from three    years hence shall  be $1 per   thousand    instead of fifty  ; cents.       After   reading tbe report of  the Forest Branch,    in  this issue of  the Press,    it    will be felt that perhaps the lumbermen    have good reason for   protesting.       Last year the  a law was   passed   levying upon the  , lumber industry one-half the cost of  'fire    protection    and    patrol    of  the  , timber berths.     This, of itself means  , quite an increase in the cost of lum-  :bering.

Tbe re-  iport of   the    Forest    Branch    shows  that it    is   costing    the Government  only  ten cents   on    every  dollar  received   from   the    lumbering industry  to carry out its part of the contract,  and that of every four dollars of the  total revenue of the Province one 'dollar- conies- from  the" lumber industry,  and this, too, inspite of the fact that  the timber resources of the Province  are not as yet one-half developed.
