Court of Revision Considers Advisability of
Converting Lands Used
for Farming Into Acreage
Mayor Hull and all tbe aldermen
with the exception of Aid. Love
were present at tbe regular meeting
of the city council on Monday evening.
8cot Carruthers wrote regarding
tbe exchange of some property
wbich he owns on Main street for
acreage in Weal Orand Forks. Tht
matter was referred to a committee
and will be gone into.
Pemberton & Son, brokers, Vancouver, offered some citv waterworks bonds at a good 'price. The
counoil will go into the advisability
of repurchasing tbem.
The chairman of tbe water and
light committee reported the result
of a trip to investigate the water
possibility on Sand creek. Owing
to tbe deep enow, he said,very little
Was accomplished oo the trip
Tba Bank of Commerce was given
permission to fill in a portion of the
lot io the rear of tbe bank building
with cinders and ashes.
The board of works was given permission to secure tbe necessary
amount of concrete pipe for culverts
on Winnipeg and Columbia avenues
-and to have tbe same installed.
After adjournment tbe court of
revision completed tbe work of go'
ing over the assessment roll. There
were only one or two small roduc<
rions made from the assessor's iig
ures. The matter of assessing al
lands being used for agricultural
purposes, eveu down to ouu acre, to
be assessd at a value for farming
purposes, was discussed at some
length, and a committee was named
to go into the matter thoroughly
with a view of placing the value of
these lands on an agricultnral basis
HOW TO START
BEEKEEPING
Bees cau be kept profitably al«
most anywhere iu Canada and each
year tbe number of beekeepers grad
ually increases. Anyone can keep
bees, but it is advisable that persons
having an uousually high nervous
temperament and those who are badly affected by tbe poison of bee
stings should not attempt it. The
returns from beekeeping are as certain as those iu any other business,
and I du not think tbere is auy otber
branch ol -griculture tbat yields as
higb returns for tbe .small amount of
capital invested or tint time required.
Anyone intending to start beekeeping must have h fair knowledge
of bee behavior and what the bees
require. A thorough knowledge of
modern methods is oot necessary to
make a Start; indeed, this knowledge
can only come tbrough years of
practical experience. The wider
oue's exderience the better beekeeper one becomeo. It is essential to b*
able to apply knowledge promptly
and to do the right thing at tht
right time. The business of beekeeping is one of details and ont
th t requires specialists. To gain the
knowledge required, it is advisable
for the prospective beekeeper to
ipeod at least one season with a
good baekeeper if at all possible. If
ithit eta not bt done much may bt
learned by attending short courses
n beekeeping al any of tbe colleges,
reading good books on the subject
or visiting neighboring bee yards as
often as possible.
When ready to take up the bus in
ness the first consideration is one of
location. A gootl locatioo Is one that
wil) produce a fairly continuous sup-
ply of pollen and nectar from early
spring until fall, with at least one
source tbat can be depended upon
for a heavy crop. Transportation,
avoidance of overcrowdiug.andshel-
ier from windB are other factors to
bear in mind when choosing a place
for the Jpiary Locality will also determine the system of management, the equipment used and kind
of boney produced.
Whenever possible tbe beginner
should purchase one oj two colonies
of Italian beeB with tested queene in
his own district. These Bhould be in
modern hives. The hive in common
use is the ten-frame Langstroth, sin
tbough Bome beekeepers now prefer a larger hive carry ing twelve
frames, or tbe ten fiame Jumbo,
wbicb is a deeper hive.
Bees can also be bought in one,
two or three pound combless packages, and if obtained early enough
in the season are often equal to
overwintered colonies. No one
sbould make the mistake of purchasing package bees until be has
hives and other accessories in readiness.
In addition to the colonies of bees
a supply of supers is necessary for
tbe ftorage of the crop, the equiva
lent of three deep supers being allowed for eacb coiony. Queen excluders, bee escapes, smoker and
veil are necessary. If increase is desired a few complete hives should
be ou hand for this purpose. There
are several manufacturers of bee
supplies that Bend out catalogues on
application, and by studying these
the beginner should have uo trouble
iu choosing the supplies he might
require. It must be borne in miud,
humever, that the equipment purchased should be modern and suits-
able for tbe purpose it is inteuded
for; also to keep it standard. Tbe
importauce of a small beginning
witb ae little expense as possible
can not be too strongly urged. Unless ode has bad some experience
do cot be tempted to purchase a
large number of colonies, even
tbough they are offered at a bargain,
lt is discouraging to invest a large
sum of money in an apiary and
tben to lose most of bees during the
winter1 through lack of experience.
—C. B. Oooderham, Dominion
Apiarist.
Perverting Human Nature
All nited .States troops have left
Germany. Wheu the trains pulled
out of Ehrenbreitsteiu a day or two
ago, mauy Germans wopt. Crowds
gathered to see the American.'' off.
Somo Oui'inuii friends oven went on
to distant stations to say goodbye for
a lust limo ns the troop trains paused
through.
Au hour before departure seventy
of the Ameaican boys married German girls.
Entering German soil as conquerors
aud despoilejs, as hated enemies and
oppressors, the Americans left as
warm, congenial friends.
And all this change took place,
under the most adverse circumstances
possible, iu the short period of three
years.
It is ono of the queer little Incidents in history which prove that
man himself when he acts naturally is
a social animal, easily assimilable and
eager to make friends.
Man only becomes an offensive
fighting animal when his natural inn
stinct are peryerted by political
schemes.
War and all the political systems
which include war as a necessary evil,
are perversions of human nature.—

Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Victoria, March I.—Last week
district foresters of the provincial
foaest branch were in session at the
legislative buildings, the object being, expains Hon. T. D. Pattullo,
minister of lands, to promote efficiency and secure uniformity of
poliy. The dutieB of the foresters
are msny and varied. Tbey are res-
quired to act as responsible agents
of the government in tin emergency,
to appraise timber at sales and to
classify land needed  for settlement.
Hon. Mr. Pattullo points out tbat
uo matter how efficient the forestry
staff may be, rbe final force and
power are tho people themselves.
Only through education, supple
mented by practice, cau the vast
timber resources of tbe province be
preserved. He gives out thu infuruiH
ation that some of the disastrous
fires of lust year were of incendiary
origin, in some cases tbe tires being
fanned into life deliberately instead
of being extinguished.
"Hanging is too good for anyone
responsible for such a course,"
staled Mr. Pattullo, who says tbat
Increased protective measures are
being provided for the coming sea
•on.
While many of the farming districts of the province are happily not
dependent upon irrigation methods,
Btill it is interesting to note tbat in
the productive areas of tbe dry belt,
out of $146,000 due from varieus
irrigation districts, tbere bas been
paid into the provincial treasury
$138,000. Tbe government has
loaned over $2,000,000 to the irrigation districts. This item is cited
as a debt on the province,and while
the province must repay tbe $2,-
000,000, which it has borrowed for
irrigation purposes, it bas an asset
to offset tbe liability much more
valuable than   tbe amount  of the
iabihty. In fact, it iB the life-blood
of the interior dry belt, claims the
minister.
Hon. William Sloan minister of
mines, has been given a place in
tbe Hall of Fame. His name appears in a New York newspaper as
one of tbe twelve most prominent
Canadiens. T.ie minister is credited
witb having done the most creditable work fo the miniug and fishing
industries in British Columbia, anil
therefore in all Canada.
Duriug the pist few years tber e
has grown up in Britisn Co umbia a
determination to prevent Orientals
from gaining further footholds in
this province. There appears no
marked antipathy to the Japanese
aud Chinese as races, but there has
come a realization that th^Be people
oan not be assimilated by Britishers.
Tbey have gained a stranglehold
upon the fishing aod farming industries and have ratde great strides iu
other directions. This growth has
been steady, untfl every part of
British Columbia feels tbe competition of tbe Oriental strongly.
Tbe Orienta is not blamed for hiB
thsift, but he follows standards of
living which are away below those
of the people of this provinco. HiB
sole object is to lay up a competence
and annually millions of dollars lind
their way out of the province across
tbe Pacific as a result of tbe Oriental's industry.
The recent victory of the provincial government before the privy
ouncil regarding tbe right of Orientals to hold and work upon public
property is perhaps the first step
towards checking the advance of
these people. Canada bas been liberal in throwing open her doors to
persons wbo will become British subjects and adopt the country as their
own and become part of tbe na'ion
al life of tbe Dominiou, but so far
the Oriental has not seen fit to do
thiB, aud there is no probability of
bis ever doing so.
Reorganization of tbe "provincial
police by Attorney General A. M.
Manson has resulted in thc superannuation of Coiin Campbell, warden of Oakalla prison, and the ap
pointment in his place of T. G. McMynn, former head of the provincial police. Col. J. II. McMullen,
government agent at Prince Rupert,
replaces Mr. McMynn.
Passing of Mrs.  Francis
Miller
The death of Mrs. Rebecca Miller,
wife of Francis Miller, occurred at
her home in this city at about 3
o'clock laet Saturday afternoon after
a short illnesB.
The late Mrs. Miller was a native
of England, and was 64 years, 10
montns and 14 days of age. Sbe
was married nearly forty five years
ago in England, and after coming
|o this country the couple settled in
this city twenty-throe and a half
years ago and they have rcsidttl
here continuously ever Bince Mrs.
Miller is survived by her husband,
three daughters aud oue son—Mrs.
A, M. McKim of Salmon Aim,Mrs.
Bert Scott of Any >x, Mrs. Hoy
Faulkner of Marcus, and Frank J.
Miller of this cily. Her oldest
daughter, Mrs. E. C. Henniger, pre
deceased her only a couple of weeks
ago. Deceased was a lady of excellent traits, and she enjoyed a
wide circle of warm personal friends,
all of whom tender sincere sympathies to the bereaved husband and
family.
The funeral was held on Tuesday
afternoon, and it was very largely
attended by tbe citizens, wbo took
this method of showing their last
respects to the memory of a worthy
woman. Many beautfful floral offerings were in evidence. Interment
was made in Fraternal cemetery.
General Manager Munroe
Says the Copper Mountain Concentrates Will
Be Treated at Trail
Vancouver. Feb. 28.— Conceit
trates from tbe Copper mountain
property recently acquired by the
Granby company will be sent to
Trail td be smelted,it was announced
yesterday by H. S. Munroe, geueral
manager of the Granby company,ou
his arrival here from Anyox. The
property has not yet been actually
taken over, he said, l>ut as soon as
the transaction was completed he
announced .that minor alteration-*
would be made in the mill so that it
could be worked to its capacity of
2000 tons a day
Conjectures that the concentrates
would be taken to the Anyox smelts
ter were denied hy Mr. Mumue,who
said tbat such a procedure would
be most, uneconomical.
About 400 men would be employed in the mill and mine,he said,
and although the tniue was sufficiently opened up to enable it to
be worked at the capacity of tbe
mill right away, be announced that
additional development work would
be undertaken
Mr. Munroe stated thai work
would be under way within two
months on the 1500 tou concentrator which is to be built at Anyox to
handle varieties of ore lhat cannot
he put directly into the BUielter,
Several new properties in tbe
Portland canal district arc tinder development by the Granby com»
pany at present, Mr. Munroe stated,
including two in the Bear river district behind Stewart. Satisfactory
results had beeu obtained in tbe
work carried on duriug the winter
oo tbe Sunshine group, he Baid,and
as Boon as weather permitted the
George group, about tweuty miles
inland, would  be diamond-drilled.
Tbe Outsider group at Maple Bay,
he announced, had been developed
to the point where itjwas now decided to equjp the property, aud
actual mining would be in operation
before snowfall, he predicted. Docks
and an aerial tramway would be
built during the coming summer.
Between 30,000 and 40,000 tons
were already blocked out, he stated.

CONSERVE YOUR SIGHT
es
Tho main objection  most employers have
against a college graduate i.s that he objects
to work, especially if it  i.s dirty.   The college
graduate doesn't want a job with work in   it,
a d when he does get  a position  lie  expects
to be appointed foreman at   the  end   of six
weeks. Most men working for me, says Thos.
A. Edison, never attended college.    The college men usually show  Lack  of   imagination.
They scarcely have any suggesti ;ns  to  make
in their daily routine winch might lead to improvement in their various departments.  College is a good place for a man who  wan\s  to
work, but, unfortunately, there are   very   few
of this   type   nowadays.    Yet, if a man wants
to succed it i.s not necessary for hiin to go to
college.   He will broaden himself without  it.
We have enough lawyers, doctors and literary
men. Also we have many $100,000 jobs with
no one  capable of filling them.    The   main
quality for success is ambition with a will to
work.
The north polar region consists  mainly   of
water. The Antarctic chiefly land. That is oue
reason who the  latter demands   much   more
interest; than the firmer. Another is that ex-
ilorers have agreed tliat there lies a new cou-
inent. The shore of this huge stretch of land
i i near or within the  polar region, that  is to
ty, in a latitude corresponding to Urontjem,
-.orway, aud Thomsoe in the northern hemi-
'here. This new continent has, according to
esent calculations, au area equal to that of
i irope and Australia.   It would therefore be
n fourth largest continenl of the world. Tho
,■ -aat new land has high mountain chains and
i•■ the interior extensive high  plans covered
an ice shield from :J00 to tiOO feet in thick-
ii !8S.    The "inland ice" shows great gulfs and
iciers     The   only  visible  landmarks   are
■■.ka and  mountain   ridges penetrating  the
•ver of ice.    On both the   Pacific   and   the
\ olantic sides of the continent there are deep
■ tys.    On the Pacific side tlie lioss sea penetrates the land in a shape like the contour of
.'•ance.    On   the  Atlantic side the Wed dell
s ia penetrates the land.   The are of this sea
is as  large as the Baltic, the Black aud the
\orth sea.

THE STRAIN of modern civilized life falls heaviast upon

It is reported on good authority  that   the

is a light and durable metal suitable for a

International Conference  to Strike at
Production of Opium at Its Source
The consumption of opium, from which
most of the drugs branch, is amazing. Records
show that 730,000 were consumed in one year,
equivalent to (> grains ti every man, womau
and child in America. Only between 30,000
and 50,900 pouuds are needed for legitimate
purposes,
An international conference to strike at the
opium production at its source is the surest,
swiftest and, in fact, the only effective step to
be taken to stop the narcotic drug evil.
I am in favor, says Senator li. S. Copeland
of New York, of the president of the United
States calling such a conference at the earliest
possible moment. Without all important nations participating in such an agreement the
plan would not be effective. And in striking
at the evil at its source the plan should include restrictions of the acreage devoted to
the growth of the poppy in such countries as
China, India, Persia and Arabia.
In addition, the United States must limit
use of narcotics. The government must supervise rigidly their manufacture and mnst 1 mit
the sale of such drugs to properly licensed
drug stores and only on the prescription of
reputable physicians. The United States
further must prohibit exporting narcotics and
stop smuggling of the same drugs back into
the country.
There is a vast distinction between alcoho 1
and drugs. An alcoholic, deprived of alcohol,
is adishrag. He is insane only while he is using it. A drug addict becomes insane as soon
as drugs are taken from him. An addict will
plan and execute a crime so atrocious that it
can not be conceived by sane persons.
In our New York list we found that about
10 per of the addicts were operators of vehicles. No wonder people are killed. I would
recommend that no license be issued to any
driver without proper physical examination
to make certain that the applicant is not a
user of drugs. I feel sure that this would
redueo automobile accidents.

"Five Tears ago when I waa first
married. I had wonderful energy.
I could be on Ilia go all day ong
without feeling the leaat bit fatigued. I had a great appetite and
could eat anything. I weighed
147 pounds. I used to be busy
every minute of tha day and, when
the day was over. I conld go to
bed and never waken one* during
the night. Thirteen months ago
my first baby was born. After
that my energy seemed to leave
me. I was tired all the time. I
had to force myself to do my
household dutiea. Instead of being
a pleasure as formerly, theae
duties became a real task. I lost
all desire for food and nothing
would tempt me. I had to make
myseif eat. I would go to hed at
ni'vht and toss from side to side
for hours at a time. After a
while I would doze off only te
find that I had been sleeping for
ten or fifteen minutes. Naturally
when morning came, not having
slept, I started the day completely
tired out. I was shaky and nervous. Tlie least noise would
startle me and make my heart race
along. I could see that my husband was worried. I was losing
weight every week and had already lost 54 pounds. I tried all
kinds of tonics, but they didn't
help me. One night, a night I
shall never forget because it
Btarted me on the way to health
and happiness nirain, my husband
brought in a bottle of Carnol. A
friend told him that Carnol had
saved his wife's life, so he insisted upon my trying it. Six weeks
after I began taking Oarnol, my
weight increased from 98 pounds
to 158, an increase of 66 pounds.
And, am I well these days T
Every morning 1 fairly jump ont
of bed ready to tackle anything
end every minute of the day is a
joy to me now."
Carnol is sold by your druggist,
and if you can conscientiously say,
after you have tried it, th:it it
hasn't done you any good, return
the empty bottle to him and he
will refund your money.        8-622
