(Victoria. Colonist.)  Spurred by the example of .the Australian states of New South Wales  and Victoria, the Toronto star is  sounding the various governments  with the object of discovering whether  the individual provinces would care to  join in offering a Dreadnought to the  Imperial fleet, as the Dominion government does not see its way to doing  so. It will be remembered that New  Zealand has made this offer, and upon  the government of the Commonwealth  declining to follow suit, New South  Wales and Victoria decided to 'contribute the money between them for  another mammoth fighter-.  A telegram to this effect was received yesterday by Premier McBride,  and the wire, with the Premier's reply,  are reproduced textually:  Toronto, Ont., Mar. 31, 1909.  PremierMoBride,  Victoria  In view of New South Wales and  Victoria   jointly   offering   a   Dreadnought do  you  favor your province  joining with other Canadian provinces  to make a similar gift?  TORONTO STAR.  Victoria, B.C., March 31, 1909.  Toronto Star,  Toronto, Out.  As states occupy more   independent  position   under Australian Commonwealth than given provinces by Canadian     constitution,'   Dominion    as a  whole should take any action towards  giving assistance to the Mother Country in defence of Empire.    People of  British   Columbia will  cordially and  patriotically   endorse action   to   this  end by Ottawa.  RICHARD McBRIDE  This week Ihe Gazette,- accompanied  by L. H. Patten, secretary of the  Golden Zom- Mining Co. paid a visit  to tlie property where operations have  been under way for the past two  months sinking a shaft on the vein.  There is at present a little over a  foot and a half of snowin (that country  the mild weather of Mjirch having  caused it to settle a great deal so that  the snow which is now on the ground  will represent a great deal of moisture  and that is a good thing for the mining  industry up in that section   especially  THE MEMBER'S VISIT  L. W. Shatford   M.P.P.    Renews  quaintances in Similkameen  Ac-  MAKE THEM ANTE UP  The United States Revision of Tariff is  Agitating German Manufacturers  The Reichstag at Berlin did a lot of  squealing last week at certain proposed  changes in tariff rates on German'  goods which are embodied in the new  tai iff bill being considered by the  United States Congress.  The American duty on woolen goods  from Germany is to bu increased 23  per cent, because price of labor of.  United States operators has advanced  while in Germany they bad been reduced.  Now that the U. S. legislators have  set this example Canada and other  British colonies should scrutinize the  list of German imports and re-adjust  the tariff in such a fashion as to make  the Dutchies either forget that they  ever wanted a navy, or wish that they  had never been horn.  if they have any  milling in  view for  the coming season.. ,  ��������� "But for a general inspection of the  property, the present covering of  snow was not convenientv.for all that  could be seen was what the shaft revealed.  Two shifts are now at work under  the superintendence of J. J. Marks  and they are now'down a depth of 63  feet. Mr. Marks. says that they are  sinking at the rate of about 12 feet a  week including the timbering.  The shaft was started several years,  ago on a fissure vein running approximately east and west. It had been  put down something, over 20 feet before and as the object was to attain  depth as quickly as possible the sinking was continued from tlie bottom of  the old shaft, but it was reduced somewhat in size and is now now not much  more than 4xo������ 'in the ele.-tr..  The shaft is equipped with a Jenckes  hoist capable of prospecting to a depth  of ahout 300 feet. There is. also a No.  5 Cameron sinking pump.- but" so far  the shaft has been comparatively dry  and the pump is not needed.  A cross-dyke of quartz    porphyry  which  is of more recent origin  and  cuts both  the country rock and the  fissure hay been  encountered in   the  shaft and the battom.of   the shaft,at  63 feet is mostly ih the dyke, although  the east end of the shfift is in ore,   the  talc seam between  the dyke and ore  being about   five or six  inches from  the east of-the shaft.  A set of timbers  had be put in the day   before,   but all  the east end of the shaft from  the  lowest timbers down   to  the  bottom  showed good    looking ore which in  view of the assays they have been obtaining, should give very good values.  The dip of the. dyke is slightly   to  the  west so that it is likely to remain with  them for some  time.      The  hanging  wall of the vein does not show  in   the  shaft.    Mr.  Marks  explained  that it  was about two feet to   the south  and  the foot wall  about four feet  to  the  north,    or a  total  width  of vein  of  about 10 feet.  It is most encouraging to find ore  of so good quality continuing so  strong in the bottom and should give  every confidence to push the work.  L. W. Shatfoid, M. P.

Tlie rumor referi ed to last week before going to press, was an error so  far as connection with the Metropolitan was concerned, but was based on a  recent strike on the Kingston.  On Friday last, the Gazette.in company with E. D. Boeing and Ross  Allen went up to the Kingston and  saw the place  where  the strike   was  one short trip to Penticton  on  S.O.L. | made.

R's LARGE BRIDGE  They Have Given Canada the  Honor of  Establishing World Record  JAPANESE    CRUISERS     COMING  Spoken By Wireless Between Japan and  Hawaian Islands  The Honolulu United Wireless  station has announced that it has  established communication with the  Jap.-i.nese-crui.sers Aso and Soyo of the  training squadron, dispatched by the  Japanese on a practice cruise to the  Pacific coast.  The Aso was formerly the Russian  armored cruiser Bayan, sunk by the  Japanese during the recent war, and  tlia Soyo the Russian protected cruiser  Variag, which suffered a. similar fate.  The ships were refloated by the Japanese at the close of the war, and after  being overhauled and refitted were  ad led to the Japanese navy.  The penitentiary at New Westminster leaked another prisoner last  week.  ( Vancouver Province)  There   are    very    few people  who  know that the Canadian  Pacific  railway is at present engaged in   building  what is   to   be   the  largest   bridge   in  the whole world���������a bridge which   will  be  as  great  a   source  of  wonder    to  visitors and of  interest,  to   engineers,  as   the   same    company's    enormous  spiral tunnels between Field and Hector, in the.Rockies,   just approaching  completion.    The bridge referred to is  being    constructed    over    the    Belly  river at Lcthbridge,   in  Southern   Al-j  berta, on the Ci-ow's  Nest   branch  of j  the  company's    line,  and  it will    be j  completed this year, according  to  information given by   William  Whyte,  the second vice-president   of the C. P.  R.  An idea of the enormous height of  this bridge will be gained by the  statement that it will be more than  double the height of the ill-fated  Quebec; bridge. The hitter bridge  was to have been 130 feet above the  level of high water: tlie C. P. R's.  new bridge will be 307 fevt above the  water level, and taking both its height  and length into consideration, it will  be the largest bridge in the world.  Its length will be 5327 feet, or some  twelve yards over the mile, and the  cost of the structure will amount to  $1,5000,000.  Co business during the session. Nevertheless he has managed to find time  for a run through the district according to his fixed custom to ascertain  the wants of his constituents and see  foi himself the requirements. Usually  his first trip in the year is made a  little later on' in the season, but as  there is a probability that he may  have to take a trip east as soon as his  brother returns, he paid the visit  earlier this year.  The past session of the legislature  was a particularly busy one for him  the work of the private bills committee of which he was a member  taking up a great deal of his time.  Regarding the legislation of the  session he regarded the Water Clauses  Amendment'of prime importance. The  bill on the whole was a good one and  while it did not go as far as ��������� some  would have liked in correcting abuses  permitted by the old act, it was an  impoitant move in the right direction  and could be improved from time to  time in certain particulars so as to  secure the greatest amount of benefit  from watter supply in developing, the  resources of the province.  The amendment to the Election Act  and the exhibition of opera bonffe  which accompanied it seemed to  amuse him especially, in view of the  fact that the opposition took a stand  diametrically opposite to that for  which they contended a year.ago, and  it was most remarkable that the government in trying to remove the cause  of former complaint should be assailed  with opposition of such a character as  that-displayed.  ���������Regarding ' the  estimates and   the  provision made for local improvements  in    the    Similkameen    he   had good  reason to feel   gratified fat the   treatment received, for a  general  vote  of  $60,000  for   the  riding showed   that  Similkaineen had.not been   neglected.  The only Other rural   constituency  to  receive    more  was  Okanagan   which  had   been voted   $SO,000,   but      Oka  nagau riding has something over 1300  miles of road to keep in repairs  while  Similkameen has something   over S00  miles.    From this it will be seen   that  Similkameen's   appropruition   stands  among the highest.    A feature of   the  expenditures for road maintenance  in  the Similkameenridingis the complete  absence   of   even    the semblance  of  partiality    in    the   distribution,    the  money being expended on   roads" that  need it most.    A glance over  the  list  of work done in this riding each  year  as shown in the   public  works  report  will convince   anyone  who  wants   to  know the truth, that all   parts   of  the  riding have had  their fair share  and  that  no  particular section   has  been  either unfairly dealt  with  or  unduly  favored, and any charges of unfairness  or undue favoritism is not  in   accordance with the facts.  This year with an appropriation of  .$(10,000. and with no extensive new  work to he undertaken to use ^up any  considerable part of it, a great improvement should and will be effected  in existing roads all over the riding.  body first laid bare when the tunnel  broke through the dyke in December  last. When the ore body was reached  at that- time, the plan adopted for exploring the extent of it was to drift  along the contact of the dyke and the,  ore and this was done for a distance of  about 80 feet e.-ich way.  Two   advantages   were   gained  by-  following this plan.    The dyke   being  much softer than the ore  body,  more  headway could  be  made   by keeping  most of the drift on the dyke and only  breaking into the ore body enough to  see that it was  there and  be  able  to  take samples of it all along,  and  thus  test the   values.   Another benefit .derived was that as there was  no  place  to store ore  on  the steep  hill-side  it  was more economical to keep  the  ore  body intact until   the  time  came  to  mine it commercially, after provision  had been made for treating it.  Last- week, however, Mr. Pollock  decided to break into it farther, and a  crosscut into the ore body was begun.  In this cross-cut they were finding  better ore than was met with in the  contact with the dyke.  The tunnel on  the Metropolitan  is  advancing steadily and   is  in   nearly  sixty feet.   The rock is fearfully  hard  and-it is difficult  to make  headway  with hand steel.    In fact if the directors of the company had any intelligent  conception of the property they have,  and wanted to conduct- mining In their  own    interests    and   the. interests  of  their stockholders  they  would  bestir  themselves   to    provide   power     for  machine drills, and conduct operations  generally on a scale  more in  keeping  with  the  property  itself.     Tentative  mining   interspersed  with  periodical"  shut-downs would tend to destroy confidence in the best property under the  sun.    Nowadays intelligent investors  in mining stocks attach as  much im-   -  portance  to  the  company- as  to  the  property, and very properly so.  By the exercise of good judgment  and skill as a practical miner, superintendent Pollock has been able during  the past eight months to add material^ to the value of the property  with the limited .means and equipment at his disposal. Much as this  has accomplished in the way of increasing local confidence in the property, there.is yet lacking evidence  that the company directors have experienced change, of heart, bub it is  sincerely to be hoped that the future  may see an improvement in this direction also.   ���������  DISPLAYS AT   A.

The  Renowned  Tiffany  Cut Glass,  and  Gorham Go's Silverware  Exhibits of the finest specimens of  the silversmith's art and Tiffany's  fragile glass will be on display at the  Alaska-Yukon-Pacific ��������� Exposition at  Seattle this summer. None of the exhibits, representing an expenditure of  more that $225,0;.0, will be on sale and j  the display will be one of tlie features  of the fair.  The exhibit of silver has been loaned  by the Gorham Manufacturing Company, and consi.-ts of nine pieces, each  worth a small fortune, the leading one  being   the   celebrated Century   vase  'manufactured for an exhibit at the  Columbian exuosition, and never since  exhibited.  This vase illustrates in its design  the progress of a century on the  American continent, starting from  early Indian days and carrying the idea through the transitions of war and  peace, development ;,ud progress to  the civilization and prosperity which  marked the closing decade of the last  century. This vase is four feet two  inches high and five feet four inches  across the base, is made of solid silver  and weighs 2.000 ounces. The value  of the vase is not determined, as the  vase is not for sale, but it is insured  for .$35,000. Four smaller vases accompany the century vase.  Two other pieces-in the exhibit, are  a lady's desk and chair of solid silver,  of ornate workmanship, easily worth  $25,000. The silver exhibit' of the  Gorham Manufacturing Company at  exposition totals $150,000 in value.  The Tiffany fragile exhibit is famous  and has been much exhibited abroad  in recent years. The glass is regarded  as the highest development of the  glassblower'sart, exceiling'in richness  of coloring. The Tiffany exhibit is  valued at $75,000.  iU  v  h  f  ,-f-l  U THE   HEDLEY GAZETTE, APRIL 8, 1900.  Gbc'.������edk$taRfc> ^Zlt^tJi  1'ifiNTi.va ANi) PiTin.rsmsr. t'liMCAvr.  JjImitei).  at.

That is really the secret  of much   of the -/opposition   to  tlie  plan  of  contributing    the  price   of one  or  nkjre  Dreadnoughts.   A press dispatch from  Halifax    announces    that    the  plan   is  to  be  for  Canada    to  build Dreadnoughts herself all  of which are to   be  constructed  at Halifax.

MacHaffie, Manager  %sivjFjimK*j*MW&^^^  .t>^*l - Mi bf*M  LOCAL OPTION ADV"3CATES  There   was no  need  for the  Editor, of  the Penticton' Press  netting ano-rv when the Gazette  pointed out some folly  and inconsistency in connection   with  his   advocacy  of local  option.  And even   if it  was  necessary  for him to get angry, he should  have endeavored to retain some  control of himself and not play  the ninny to the  extent  which  he did in the  last issue  of the  Press.  Not long  ago  the  Saturday  Sunset tried  to  show him the  evil results   of forcing  prohibitive liquor   legislation  on the  people before public   sentiment  ���������was ready for it, and by way of  showing that public   sentiment  is    not ready for so  great   a  change,    pointed  out the fact  that an infraction of the liquor  laws doesn't cause the  indignation  on  the  part  of  supposed  law-abiding    people    which.it  should.    Public sentiment must  be behind any law before it can  be enforced and this  is  a  hundred fold more so in connection  with the liquor traffic than any  other.    It seems almost  impossible to make liquor-sellers obey  outright a rigid license law, and  those who have  lived  in  Scott  Act counties  in  Ontario  know  something of the way they will,  act when   they  imagine  themselves wronged by apiohibitive  law. The writer has seen magistrates who under a licence   law  would try liquor cases  and   impose tines and imprisonment on  hotel-men    who    violated    the  law. that were  afraid   of   their  lives to sit on   a  case  in   violation    of  the   Scott Act.      Only  about   one   magistrate   out     of  twenty had   the  sand   and   the  moral stamina  to   try  a   Scott  Act case and yet  possibly  over  the seal of public approval  placed on them again bj' being  given a licence. The namby-  pamby spineless creatures who  voted for the act and then helped to violate it after ir came in  force, we despised, as much as  we did those liquor., men", who  resorted to thuggery, and there  arc lots of themin the Okanagan  to-day howling for local option  who would do no better.-  One of the most remarkable  things about the present discussion in the Canadian papers  on the question of contribution  by this country to the imperial  navy is the unanimity displayed  -by the press generally on the-  subject. With one or two minor  exceptions they one and all endorse the idea. In Toronto, for  example, all live daily papers  are in favor of contribution.  ���������Nelson News.

SOME PLAIN FACTS  J-  Castell  Hopkins    Shows    Canadians  Just Where They Stand  ���������.mini, .mi minium  EDITORIAL    COMMENTS  The full Hansard report of  speeches in the House of Commons on the question of contribution towards maintenance  of the British navy   is  not  yet  to hand, but  if  the  newspaper  summaries of them  are  at all  accurate, Canadians have little  reason  to  be  rjroud    of   their  parliamentary leaders.    Foster  opened the ball with a plethora  of platitudes on loyalty, but all  too non-committal and vague to  be at all suitable to the occasion,  and   he  was  answered  by Sir  Wilfrid   Laurier,  who  beyond  twitting Foster on  the  vagueness of his  resolution and his  deliverance    thereon    had  . no  more to contribute to  the  discussion himself than platitudes  on loyalty and what   he  might  do "in the sweet bye and bj^e"  than Foster.    But when he rose  to a grand climax in his perora  tion    on  loyalty by   declaring'  that when Britain needed Canada's aid he   would   use  whatever strength he had remaining  to stump the country  to  rouse  Canadians to contribute to   the  empire's defence, he perpetrated  about the   most  presumptuous  piece of   impertinence   that he  has ever been guilty of. Laurier  stump the   country  on   such  a  theme!   The  man  who  would  not    agree  to  allow Canadian  troops to  go  to  South  Africa  until public sentiment compelled  him to submit!    What a farce !  And  yet the  English  press  is  carried away  by  that sort of  stage acting.    As   a  matter  of  fact public sentiment in Canada  is  far in  advance  of Laurier,  Foster or Borden on   that subject, and do not need to be harangued on it by   men  who  cut  as   sorry  a  figure  as  most  of  darkness, and an   attempt   was  those   who  took  part  in  that  eighty per cent, of them voted  to bring-it in operation. One  magistrate who did do his duty  had his barns bi'irned down, his  daughter;; fired at with a. riiie  through the window ' at  someone  out  in   the  night  by  afterwards  made  to  blow   up  discussion at Ottawa.  The    following   letter   written  the  Toronto-World hy J. Castell  Hopkins  is apropos ;it the present time; He says:.  "May I add a. word  or  two   to  the  manly and national.expression of your  views upon the question of empire defence?    When Canada, was in its birth  pains of United States revolution,   invasion and attempted conquest, Great  Britain was-unstinted in her- supply of  blood and men and money;   when our  youthful nation, that was to he, needed soldiers.to support its  growth  and  maintain  its interests  and   hold    its  territory, British   troops  and  fortica-  tkms were maintained here at   an  expenditure, of $300,000,000 during  the  nineteenth century.;   when   our growing   commerce  became a  matter   of  international concern, as our- vast  unbroken territories had so long been an  object of international cupidity,   they  rested   securely within  the  scope of  Britain's    naval     supremacy;    when  British dignity and   Canadian feeling  were  shamed "by   the   Trent .affair,  10,000 British, soldiers  came  to  Canada as fast as ships could  bring  them  here ; when the Fen ian invasion   illustrated the. helplessness of a  country  like ours, lying alongside the territory  of a great power, Britain paid the damages rather than risk war with a country stirred to 'fever-heat by  passions  of the. moment which have now,   hap  pily disappeared.  If Canadian settlers needed road's and  canals and bridges in early   days  British money supplied many of them ; if  the Indians for half a century   required expensive coddling and yearly gifts  and payments, the money was provided  by    Great   Britain;    if   our churches  wanted vast   sums for  pioneer  work  and   continued development,   British  voluntary societies   contributed  some  $100,000,000 during tlie nineteenth century ; if railway, such as  the  Intercolonial, had to be constructed   at a  period when provincial credit   was  poor  and   inter-provincial   unity a dream,  Great Britain guaranteed the loans  to  a total amount of  $25,000,000 ; if in recent years   countless  enterprises,   private and national, required money,   it  has been freely accorded in London up  to   a.  present  total  of $1,500,000,000,  which is invested in the  Dominion;  if  we wanted to build canals, or construct  a Canadian   Pacific  or Grand  Trunk  Railway, or a Canadian  Northern,   or  a Grand Trunk Pacific, we have readily  obtained the money   in   London   at  a  rate  of  interest and  with a  facility  which no small nation not   under  the  British flag,   and   not  having  British  power and  stability to  guarantee  its  position,    could    possibly   have  commanded ; if,   since  confederation, ��������� our  trade upon the seas of the world, totaling over 0300 millions, has never been  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  X  A NICE LINE OF AMERICAN and CANADIAN SUMMER FOOTWEAR  Agent for Singer Sewing Machines  J.

To-morrow will be'Good Friday.   '  J. O. Coulthard of Princeton, was  in' town last week.  TheJ Oroville Gazette says that a  portion of the stamp mill at Night-  hawk was put in operation last  week.  Mrs. Allison and daughter of Prince  ton. returned last week from Keremeos  where they had been visiting Mrs.  Daly.  Rev. A. M. Miller, of Enderby will  hold public service in the Methodist  chru-ch here on Sunday evening next  at 7:30.  Tho thermometers up at the mine  were broken, and consequently the  temperatures readings up there were  interrupted for a few days. They  have now been'replaced and the reports will go on  as before.  Barratri Penz, the Italian who was  injured in the explosion up at Hankin-  . son's camp is making' good progress  towards recovery. Dr. WhiJlans and  ,,Dr. Rankin who are attending him  are confident now that he will not  lose his eye-sight.  A big rock thatJ got'loose on the  mountain side in the vicinity of the  gravity-tramway came in contact with  thevcable and cut some of the strands.  The injury was considered too great  to risk running with it; and the cable  was replaced with another.  On Thursday morning last. Billy  Waugh when working on his new  building in the district south of  Haynes St. was stricken* with partial  paralysis which attacked his entire  left side, and up to the present time  there is very little improvement in his  condition.  Angus Stewart went up to the Nickel  Plate last week to start the compressor on the hill, as the water supply is  still too short to run the-big compressor in the power-house down at Hedley.  Last week -witnessed a most disappointing drop in temperature at the  mine which made itself visible in  available water supply.  The water wagon is still in commission for the upper part of the town.  When the water was turned on the  pipes it was found that 'frost had  caused breaks in the main, there being  water lodged in low places along the  pipe line. Drain cocks at all low points  would save, a whole lot of digging and  cussing in the spring time.  A big crowd is likely to go down to  Keremeos on Easter Monday evening  to the assembly for .the opening of  Richter's new hall at Keremeos Centre.  J.

The Greenwood Ledge played an  April fool trick on the other papers of  the district and didn't go to Nelson  after all. By way of explanation of  the change, of plan, the Ledge says.���������  "On the principle that one live newspaper should he a much better paying  proposition than ten dead ones, the  Ledge believes that there, is more  money in being here than   nowhere."

The Hag is flying over the Reeve's  storerto-day, signifying the arrival of  a son and heir. The Gazette tenders  its congratulations. The Council  would only be doing the right thing if  they gave a champagne supper to celebrate such a great event in the annals  of the town.  The editor of the Press in a burst of  generosity has gone  to some  trouble  to'infoim the writer that liquor licenses are only granted from year to year.  Weil really .now, just fancy that!   I  have   often    wondered   what   licence  commissioners were for, and I am  extremely obliged to- the editor of the  Press for- tlie light he  has  thrown  on  the subject.     He also attempts to pull  me up on my idea of   compensation if  a licence   be,   cancelled   through   the  fault of the holder, or in the event of  a reduction owing  to  a Local Option  law coming into'force.     Now,   this  is  not an original idea of  my   own . but  one which is very largely practiced  in  Great Britain, and I was only expressing what I consider  the  fair-play side  of the question   when   I   said   that   I  thought some consideration  should be  shown to a man who loses at least half  his business through "a  new' piece of  legislation.   He' finishes  his   brilliant  critique with the   following .trite  remark.    'VWheu   a man builds a hotel  lie  takes  the   risk."   I    was   always  under the impression  that everyone  took a risk no matter what business  .they went into.    No hotel man is foolish enough to build a'large hotel knowing very well   that   he   cannot  get a  licence for it, and  those  that have a  licensed house,    providing    they  run  their hotels decently and orderly and  obey the law peculiar to their- calling,  run   no   more   risks   of   losing   their  ;_\/  ���������if-*  Take Notice; that I have received objections in writing to the undermentioned persons' names being retained on the list of voters for the Smilkarheeh  Electoral District  r '  ���������i   <3  Name of Person ���������     Last Known Address  Bailey, Frank Hedlev  Bailey, Walter B Hedley  Ball Charles Max Carmi  Browne, Thomas P Hedley -    -  Boler.

The Keremeos Trumpet will be- the  Trumpet no more, the name having  been changed to Chronicle, which is a  much more dignified and less windy  appellation. Bro.

There is very little talk about baseball in the Similkameen this spring so  far. Hedley and Keremeos have had  baseball weather for the past month,  but when Princeton gets thawed out  a little more wo may expect to see  things doing. With a pitcher of  Charleston's, skill to see them through  Princeton will be sure to get a team  together for this season's play. It is  to be hoped, however, that he will not  prove' a "boo-man" like what Wes  Rodgers used to be and frighten Keremeos and Hedley out of playing.  To start with he stated that the  whole of-my ������������������article-was a fabrication  from start to finish'and to prove this  he showed the editor last month's re-,  port to the department which showed  that only three hundred dollars were  spent during that period. He also  says that the five thousand dollars  granted for last year was not spent,  but he does not say what was done  with it. He still claims that- the scow  built last year is worth more than a  thousand dollars, but personally I  should be very sorry to.pay more than  eight hundred for it. On the whole I  am rather pleased than otherwise  with the Superintendent's report to  the Press as it shows they must have  at least eleven thousand to spend this  year on dredging operations, and of  course this will  be good for the towii.  The Kelowna Orchestra Theatrical  Company is coming on the loth.  They will give "The Pirates of  Penzance. When they played H.M.S.

Resources  "The .Donation Forest Reserves aie  intended to preserve and produce a perpetual supply of timber for the people  of the prairie, the homesteaders, needs  being considered of first importance.  They are not intended to furnish wood  for the lumber trade. Hence the policy  of the Department is favorable to  small mills rather than to large ones  which need large tracts of forest and  manufacture lumber beyond the needs  of the-settlers" In those, words Mr.  > Knechtel, Inspector of Domnion Forest Reserves, defines the objects for  which the Dominion forest reserves"  are being managed in Bulletin No. .3  of the Forestry Branch of the Department of the luterior.  Mr. Knechtel gives a list of the reserves, with the date when they, were  set aside. The aggregate area of all  the Dominion forest-reserves is 16,312:];.  square.miles, divided as follows:  Manitoba, (6 reserves) 3,5754, sq. nils.  Saskatchewan (4 reserves 740 sq.mls.  ,     Alberta (6|reserves) 9,702 sq. mis.  British Columbia (10 reserves) 2,295  sq. mis.  Forest fires furnish perhaps the most  serious problem met with in the administration of the reserves. This  problem is more serious than in eastern timberlands, Mr. Knechtel is convinced. The amount of rainfall and  the number of rainy days-is much less  in Alberta,Saska tehewan and Manitoba  than in the east. This Mr. Knechtel  proves by figures taken -from- the  "weather man's" report, giving these  facts for Calgary, Qu'Appelle, Winnipeg and Toronto. Figures prove, too,  that the wind, on the average, blows  at twice the rate in Winnipeg that it  does in Toronto.  The reserves are under constant  patrol, summer arid winter.  In 1908 only two serious fires occurred on the reserves. Of these one on  "The Pines" reserve, near Prince  Albert, Saskatchewan, burned over 22  square miles, but destroyed no valuable timber. The other, in the Turtle  Mountain reserve, burned over 28  square miles, mostly covered with  grass. In both fires, however, considerable damage was done to young  growth. '-.-���������'  Various other methods of protection  from fire, such as the burning of fire  lines and the ploughing of fireguards  are also mentioned. Roads across the  reserves and along their boundaries  .are also being constructed, largely  with this end in view. One hundred  and fifty miles of such roads were  made last year.  Grazing on the reserves is another  problem that has been considered.  This will be allowed, under certain  restrictions.    Why should good  grass  m^^^^m^m^m^^m^  WHY PAY  When you can get a good lot on the best residential streets  at from $200 to $250 on easy terms of payment.  ���������^  ^>  Now, during the quiet months, you might be building a  small house for yourself without much outlay.  ������r  Call in and see what we can do for you.  The Hedley  F. H. FRENCH  Secretary and Manager,  HEDLEY, B.C.  be allowed to go to waste the inspector asks? Tho cattle, too, will eat up  the dense growth of grass and pea-  vine that is found in many places on  the reserves. This, if dried, would  furnish the best kind of fuel for forest  fires. Moreover, cattle, in going to  water-, make for themselves narrow  paths, which will act both as a check  to the flames and a point from which  to backfire.  On many of the reserves large areas  have been destroyed by fire. Experiments are being carried on with a view  v.V 5to';the reforestation of .these. Sowing  ���������CC-f'the seed of the trees, rather than tire  far more expensive planting, is favored.  During 100S a number of squatteis  were removed from the Riding Mountain and Turtle Mountain reserves, 120  from the former and 25 from the Turtle Mountain reserve. Despite the  delicate nature of the work, those who  were removed are so well pleased with  the change that all have made affidavit to the effect that they have been  well treated and are well pleased with  the change.
