TIMBER FAMINE
A Short Review of the Pres-
eqt Situation of the
Industry
Large Fortunes Will Be Made
Out of Lumber in This
Province
Tho average citizen does not yet
appear to have arrived at a full
realization ot the imminent danger
of a timber famine in the near future. To demonstrate that ^euch a
danger ib more real than imaginary,
it is only necessary to cite the facts
that in big recent message to the
American congress President Roosevelt gave the matter of the preservation of the forests serious consideration, and that during the past year
or two the subject has been earnestly
discussed in the leading magazines
and newspapers of Canada and the
Unitid States.
To illustrite the wanton waste of
lumber and the rapid rate at which
our forests are disappearing, it is
only necessary to state the facts as
they exist. In the United States
the consumption of lumber bat increased r.t a rate out of proportion
to the increase of tire population.
While some of the reports are incomplete, these figures may be taken
as much more than fairly accurate:
The lumber cut in 1880 was 18',*
000,000,000 feet; in 1890, 24,000,-
000,000 feet, and in 1900, 35,000,-
000,000 feet. The increase in pop-
hlation from 1880 to 1900 waB 52
per cent, but in lumber cut the increase was 94 pur cent. TJie United
States is using annually 400 board
feet of lumber per capita, while the
average for Europe is only 60 feet
per capita. It is estimated that the
lumber cut in the United States
Binco 1880 would make a floor one
inch thick over Vermont, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Ehode Island
and Delaware.
From the above figures, it may
readily be seen that the day is not
far distant when the forests of the
United States will be entirely denuded, especially as the best forests
in that country are privately owned,
and consequently the lands are devastated of their trees without regard for thoir future growth.
As an instance of the ever increasing scarcity of timBer limits in
the United States, but one case need
be cited. Nine years ago a tract of
6900 acres in thn Grays Harbor
country was sold forS-0,000'. In
August last the purchasers sold this
same land to eastern capitalists for
81,2")0,000. This incredible increase in the value of timber lands
bas been brought about in a section
of the country in which, a few years
ago, the timber was considered inexhaustible. And if a few years has
wrought this wonderful change in
the condition of tffaiis iu the state
of Washington, it is only natural to
conclude that history will repeat itself in other sections of the country.
Crossing over into Canada, we
find that tho forests are being denuded in the same reckless manner
as in the States. In the eastern
provinces  the   best timber has al
ready been manufactured into lumber, and the gradual decrease of the
supply is becoming more keenly apparent as the years go by. This
scarcity of timber is made manifest
at present by tlm prevailing high
prices for lumber.
Io this province superficial observers regard the timber lands a*
inexhaustible, and are prone lo un
estimate the value of good limits.
But a careful study of the situation
makes it quite evident that an opposite view Bhould be taken. While
it is true that our forest wealth is
almost limitless and beyond computation, it is equally true that vast
areas are located in inaccessible
places—away from streams and railway facilities—and will be practically as useless as if they did not
exist for decades hence. 'A large
proportion of the merchantable timber of British Columbia—variously
estimated at from 70 to 140 billions
feet, and constituting the most valuable timber asset of the province—
has already been staked. The territory that draws its lumber supply
from our forest wealth is an
extensive one, embracing Alberta,
Saskatchewan, Manitoba and some
of the States south of us, to say notn-
ing of the local market. With the
rapid settlement of the prairie province, tht demand for lumber from
these sections must of necessity be
immense, and it would not be surprising if the "timber famine"
would be brought to our very door
before we are aware of it.
In the Kootenays the best timber
limits have been sold to speculators,
who will, of course, make snug fortunes out of them in a few years.
Locally the situation is much the
same as elsewhere. It is admitted
by all competent timber cruisers
that some of the best timber lands
in the province are located on the
Kettle river and its tributaries,
ly all the timber of merchantable
value on tbese streams has already
Lately a large number of these
limits have been sold lo outside
cspiUlists, and in all probability
the purchasers will prove as fortunate as the Grays Harbors investors,
though perhaps on a smaller scale.
An important factor in the future
value of timber lands is destined to
be the order-in-council passed by
the provincial government on Tuesday last withdrawing all timber
lands from purchase or pre-emption.
This order suspends all traffic so
far as the taking up of timber is concerned, pending the further decision of the government in the matter.
No timber lands can be secured by
staking after tho dute mentioned.
Up to the present about li.500,00)
acres of timblcr have been staked in
British Columbia.
The lumber industry iscoiisi'lerid
tho safest anrl most profitable investment for capital of the present day.
It is a well known fact thata majority
of the large fortunes accumulated in
the United States during the past
seven or eight years have been
made out of lumber. There
are equally as grent opportunities
in the same field in this province
at the present day. It is there
fore a pity that so little interest is
taken in this line by Canadian capitalists. The timber lands are rapidly
being bought up by American syndicates and the far-seeing individiml
American capitalists. It would he
infinitely better for the Dominion
and the province if these invest-
mtnts were made by the people of
Canada, thus keeping the large
profits that must accure in thc near
future at home, instead of going to
mnke American millionaires.
AN EXCITING DAY
Christmas  Morn Witnessed
Many Lively Events in
the City
Great Northern Roundhouse
and Three Engines Destroyed by Fire
There was euough excitement in
the city on ChristmaB morning to
furnish subjects for a two day's
First of July celebration. Events
crowded each other so rapidly that
the good people even forgot to examine their Christinas stockings.
At seven o'clock dark, volumes of
smoke was discovered issuing from
the city lock up, and a lone "drunk"
who had been locked up on the
previous evoning, was seen clinging
to the iron bars, alternately praying
and calling piteously for help. The
department responded promptly to
the call, and soon had tho fire extinguished, before much damage was
done to the building. The upsetting
of the stove by tho prisoner is given
as the origin of the blaze. The
prisoner has since 'swore off" using
whisky as a daily beverage, and has
joined the Salvation Army.
A few minutes after the smoke in
the jail had been laid low, an alarm
was sent in from Weston, and enquiry elicited the (information that
the Great Northern roundhouse was
on fire. The fire department responded to the call, and made a
quick run to the extreme West end
of the city, but when the firemen
reached the scene of the conflagration they found they were powerless
to do anything to extinguish thu
Hames on account of luck of water.
The fire burned fiercely until the
building was u masa of ashes. Three
engines, two lurge ones, and one of
smaller size, were in llm roundhouse
at the time the fire Started. As they
were "dead" at the linn.*, sU-ain not
having been kept up, it was impossible to get tbem out of the building
and Jlhuy were entirely ruined by
the hot fire of the frame building.
Tho estimated loss by ibis blaze is
placed between 820,000 und S30,-
000. It is reported that the Great
Northern Company intends to rebuild thc roundhouse on a larger
scale, but no uuthuritivo statement
on this point hns yet been made
At eleven o'cl ink n lively runaway furnished excitement for a
few minutes A fimili-hoise team
from the iiveiy barn, which hud
just started mit with the Intention
of giving 11 iu children of the city u
free Christinas sji'lgh ride ouue
dashing across tho Ninth Fork
bridge, and, passing the Vale turned
up Riverside avenue, At Ihe eurner
of Jitverside and Winnipeg avenues
a sharp turn wus mude und the box
and driver thrown off. At tbe
corner of First street the loud team
swingingsharply to the light, the
wheelers keeping sruigbt ahead
brought the horses to a sudden
stop, nn ■ horse bsiiig thrown several
feet in tli" air, falling iu sue.h u| Dr. (
Inannes us to break a hip and other unlay I
internal organs, which caused its ihcena.
death in a few minutes. It is very \ he will
fortunate that tliere were no children - ing
in the rig at the time the runaway
occurred. A team had barely
crossed the bridge when the runaways came dashing along. Hud
they met in the middle of the narrow structure, there would surely
have been some futilities to record.
CITY NEWS
The free Christmas sleigh ride,
which is annually given the children of tho city by tbe proprietors
of the livery stable, came very near
being attended by a serious accident
this year. As the four-horse team
came down the Bridge street hill,
the horses became frightened and ran
away, dashing down the street at a
break-neck speed, The sleigh was
crowded with youngsters at the time,
and how they all managed toscram-
ble to tho ground without receiving
bruises or broken limbs can only be
explained by saying it was a miracle. The horror of thc situation was
accentuated by a fast approaching
Kettle Valley line train as the team
dashed across the railway tracks.
Holy Trinity church celebrated
Christmas day with a holy communion nt 8 a.m. and a choral celebration at 11 a.m. The beautiful service wns well rendered by the choir,
ably assited by Mrs N. L. Mclnnes.
The anthems were Stainer's "O Zion
That Bringest Glad Tidings" and
Simper's "Behold, I Bring." The
Kyrie and Agnus Dei, also by Stainer, were very impressively sung.
Mr. Walter Dowdney fulfilled the
duties of organist with his usual
ability. Thu ehureh wns tastefully
decorated. The Christmas festival
will be continued next Sunday,
December 29th, with holy communion nt 8 a. m., matins und sermon at
11 a.m., and evensong nnd sermon
at 7:31) p.m. At the lust two services the anthems will  bo repeated.
The Rogue River (Grant County,
Oregon) Courier, of December 20th,
contains the following interesting
item, which will certainly prove to
bo news to the people ofthe Boundnry Country: -"A short time ago

Smelter to Start After
New Year's
A very acceptable Christmas gift
was presented to the people of the
city and of the entire Boundary
district last Tuesday, when the announcement wus made that the
Grand Forks Smeltermcn's Union,
and the I'hoenix Minor's Union had
decided to return to work at once in
the mines and smelling works of thu
Granby Consolidated.
Quite a force of thc men started in
at the Granby mines in I'hoenix
camp today and also at tha smelter
in this city. In tho course of a week
the full complement should be at
work, somewhere between 800 and
1000 employees. It is not likely
that any of the furnaces st the
smelter will be blown in until New
Year's, as it will take some days to
get the ice out of the mines, and
there is also a great deal of cleaning
up around the smelter to be done.
Tuesday afternoon a special meeting of the smeltunnei.'s union wns
held in this city, and a now vote
taken on whether the new wage
scale should be accepted, it buying
been turned down last week. All
but thirty voted to accept it, accord-
to report, and then tho vote was
made unanimous.
Tuesday evening a special meeting of Phoenix Miners' Union No. 8
was held in that city. A week ago
this union gave a majority vote to
accept the new scale, and at that •
meeting, after hearing from Grand
Forks union, the I'hoenix union
decided to resume work at once.
For the Inst two weeks efforts have
been mude by a special committee
of the I'hoenix Board of Trade to
get the management of the Granby
company and the employees together on thu wage scale posted at
ihe mines and smelter, nearly three
weeks ago, and .1 number of conferences between A. B. W. Hodges,
local manager of the Granby coinpiiiiy, and a eommitteerf the union,
have been held.
The scale accepted is about 50
cents per day lower thnn thut prevailing when the mines closed Oil
November 11 on account ol the low
price of copper nnd high operating
costs.     It is certain that the I Iranby
will operate ut its full-sal capacity of
8000 tons of Ore shipped nnd smelted
daily, as only on this scale can tho
company make even u moderate
profit on 12 or 13 cent copper.
General satisfaction iB expressed
in this eity and throughout the
Boundary district at the announcement of the resumption of work.
Chns. liny. Jr., who is pngng I

FRIDAY, DECEMBER 21, 1907
There ia no reason why the people
»f Gi'imil Forks should not celebrate
an exceptionally happy Sew Year.
On theevo of the birth of 1908 every
indication points to a period of unsurpassed prosperity for the entire
Bjundary district. With the Granby
Consolidated operating at full capacity, thero is every assurance of labor finding steady employment at re
iiiunerative wages. There is also a
bright prospect of the plant being
doubled in capacity during the next
twelve months. In mining, there
is every promise of tho North Fork
camps which are tributary to this city,
receiving Tj fresh impetus as soon as
spring opens up. The lumber industry is gaining in importance as the
seasons go by, and this year it has
grown to ipiite respectable dimensions' In railway circles, we are
promised the extension of tho Kettlo
Valley line from Lynch creek to
Franklin camps; shops, roundhouses
and a divisional point by the Canadian Pacilic railway, and there are good
grounds for believing that tho Great
Northern contemplates further improvements at this point, besides Iho
rebuilding on a larger scale, of Ihe
roundhouse destroyed by lire thc other
day. In manufacturing, it would surprise no ono if the Boundary Iron
Works and Ihe Grand Forks Machine
k Etruotural Iron Works were
doubled in capacity before the end of
1908. Our agricultural und horticultural interests aro now second only
to tho mining and smelling industry,
and in this lino wo expect to see the
liveliest times in the valley next summer that has yet been witnessed. We
have the soil and the climate here,
and lots of good land. The numerous
gold medals and prizes won by our
fruit at homo and abroad during the
year that is now closing has given
this district a world-wide reputation
as a producer of most excellent fruit,
and the influx of new settlers to section next summer should surpass anything that has yet been experienced
in any portion of tho province. Besides    all   those   advantages,   Grand
The Minister of the Interior has
informed the house of the printed
instructions to booking agents in Ihe
United Kingdom nn March 20, 1906
nfter it was decidon to carry on nn
aggressive campaign in Great Britain
for the purpose of supplying tbe requirements here. The following
i.s an extract from the circular issueil:
"Bonuses will he paid provided the
regulations are complied with, upon

The latest enterprise in connection
with the application of electric power
in the Kootenay country is u project advanced by Lome A. Campbell to irrigate the, whole Kettle
River Valley, says the Rossland
Miner. Such an enterprise would
be the means of creating a world of
wealth in this already fertile valley,
which is producing gold medal fruit
and where several profitable orchards
are now in full bearing. It is said
that the project is to be carried out
in connection with the Cascade Power
company's plant which has been
idle since it was absorbed by the
West Kootenay Power coin puny.
It hns a capacity of 8,000 horse
power, and if applied to irrigation
purposes there will be no difficulty
in irrigating the whole valley, which
is fifteen miles long and over a mile
wide. Electric irrigation by means
nf pumps is already in use on somo
orchards in ihe valley. When seen
about the project, Mr. Campbell
admited that he had gone into the
matter thoroughly, but that he was
not prepared to discuss it.
A particularly sad fatality occurred last Thursday morning on the
trail leading up from the I'hoenix
road to the Crescent mine. John F,
Rennison, a mucker at the mine,
while returning from Greenwood hnd
lain down in the snow and died.
Dr. Spankie, who examined the
body of the unfortunate man after
it bad been brough  to Greenwood
slated that death was the result of
natural causes, heart failure follow
ing a severe attack of colic. The
position of the body and internal
evidence supported the supposition
that the deceased hnd been suffering
great pain. A miner, who lives at
the Last Chance, who comes curly
to get his breakfast remarked on
the fact of his hearing a groaning,
which he took for nn animal near
the trail. When Rennison did not
turn up to work, Superintendent
Feeney set out lo investigate) and at
a point some .'iOO yards from the
mine, off the trail, found the body.

Next Wednesday is the animal
swearing oft' day. Most of last
year's good resolutions will be re-
enacte'dj and some men will be good
I'm' about fifteen minutes.
The longer a man works at a job
the more he knows ahout it, and
Irss lie thinks ho knons about it.
We lose a lot of valuable time
worrying about the things tlmt never
happen.
It is rather rubbing it in to advic
a man with "cold feet" to keep cool.o
Tho man who escapes leap yenr
need not give up' hope entirely.
Mutches are tnadfl in heaven.
Even a talkative innn seldom
gets the last word after he weds.
lie is in mighty pom' business
who tries to deBtroy a faith nnd a
belief that are the supports of feet
that totters towards the grave.
It is easy to believe after eating a
hearty meal that everybody in the
world is well fed and happy.
People who give a lot can attract
public attention. Some men have
^iven their all without ever being
known to fame.
Kind words are easily coined, and
there is never any need of issuing
hank checks to take their place.
Love laughs at locksmiths, but
not at goldsmiths.
There is no heat in last year's
ash heap.
It is so easy to find fault tlmt a lot
nf people spend most of their time
at it. *
It is a waste of time to talk to a
Btarving innn about the   benefits nf
occasional fasting.
Bargain counter marriages are seldom profitable.
Repentance professed for the purpose of getting into a position to do
it again does not count for anything.
It is easy to smile while you are
winning, but the world loves a man
who can keep right on smiling while
losing.
One-half the world does not know
how the other half lives, aud would
nut understand it somebody showed
them.

Fashion's decrees are funny
things. For instance, as soon as 11
man purchases a soft hat he deems
it necessary to jah a few dents into
it. liut he gets mad if anybody
puts a dent into his new stiff hat.
The man who is quite sure he ean
get into heaven his own way knows
better than to try to get into tbe
Masonic order the same way.
The heart that harbors up hate is
never af home for happiness.
Friendship bought with money is

tost of Making Copper
With the lowering of the price of
copper in the hist six months frnm 25
cents to 12 or l.'l cents per pound, it
is of interest to note what it cost the
producers in the Boundary to turn out
the refined metal. Particularly is this
the case when it is the general ojiin
ion, seemingly, that the price of the
red metal is likely to slay around the
present quotations for some time to
come at least. When copper was
bringing above 20 cents per pound,
all the companies here and elsewhere,
when operating to full capacity, were
making excellent profits, hue cutting
the price in half puts a different view
on the case.
According to the otlieial annual report of the Granby Consolidated, it
eost that company for the fiscal year
ending June 30th last 10.13 cents per
pound to mine, smelt, refine and sell
its copper.
Newman Erb, chairman of the
hoard of directors of tho British Col-
lumbia Copper Company, Ltd., is
quoted   in  New York as saying that
the cost of copper f.o.b, at the Greenwood smelter was not above lii.'.c per
pound, but that when refining and
selling charges were added, including
freight to the refinery, the cost was
around the 12J cent level.
The normal cost of the copper of
the Dominion Copper company is figured at 10J cents per pound, but for
the fiscal year ending July 31st last,
with all the drawbacks encountered, it
cost the company approximately 14c
per pound to run out its copper.
After the completion of its third fur
nace, on account of severe weather
conditions, coke troubles, eto., the
company hardly had a full month at
full capacity, but lost about three
months' time in the year.
The cost of producing copper by the
Consolidated company at the Snow-
shoe mine is not given out, part of the
ore going to the Trail smelter and the
balance to Greenwood.
From the above it will be noted
that not one of the companies was able
to get anything like the full benefit of
the   high   price  of copper in tho last
