Now that the people of the Similkaineen valley have won their contest  for the main line of the Kettle Valley  ruilway to be built to Princeton, instead of taking the Aspen Grove route,  by the efforts of L.AA7. Shatford, M. P.

At an average cost of less than one  cent per square mile, "15,203 square  miles of Dominion Crown tiinberlands  in the Northwest ..were examined by  forest survey parties sent out by th'e  Forestry Branch of the Department  of the Interior.  The Philippine Islands, which are  extremely heavily wooded, are supposed to contain 200,000,000,000 feet board  measure, of timber, This is about one  third the estimated timber of Canada,  not including pulpwood, of which  there are uppoxiinutely 400,000,000  conds.  With the opening of the Panama  Canal the development of tlie forest  resources' of: tlie near-by .tropical  countries should receive considerable  stimulus. The wood of the luaiigro.ve  tree, which grows along the low-lying  coasts Of Britsh Guina and adjacent  countries,, it is said to be twice as  strong sis oak, and, when stood on  end. will sustain without crushing a  loud of Nitons to the square inch* It  is said to 'be immune to decay which,  with its giteut strength, makes it an  ideal wood ifor railway ties.  5,000 cowls of poplar are used anual-  ly in Cunadai for the .manufacture of  excelsior, according to statistics recently gathered by the Dominion  Forestry Brunch. The wood must be.  clear of knot, peeled, and cut into four  foot lengths, to command the highest  price from the manufacturer. In  Switzerland' excelsior is chiefly made  from pine and fir and it is used largely  for upholstering, for it retains its elasticity longer than hair nnd the small  percentage of resin in the wood is said  to protect the furniture. The Canadian  products is chiefly for packing furnit-  uie, but by using pine and spruce the  present uses of excelsior might be extended.  In the little country of Denmark  there are 230 pulp or paper mills. In  Canada, according to the latest available statistics of the Dominion Forestry Branch, there are only 48 pulp  mills in actual operation. The Canadian mills are, however, many times  larger than those in Denmark.  Large game presrves have recently  been set aside in Sonialiland, Uganda  iind other British protectorates in  Africa, in which the hunting is prohibited of elephants giraffes, rhinoceroses  and other valuable game in danger of  extinction. This policy hus^ also  proved succesful in perpetuating the  game supply on certain Dominion Forest reserves in AVestern Canada, and  as occiision demands the number of  these game preserves will be increased.  Ottawa, March 21���������Just how to cut  up, the Dominion constituencies of  British Columbia in order to provide  for the six new members of the House  of Commons which redistribution will  give that province, is ^'question which  is now agitating: the minds of the  seven British Columbia repicsentu  tives. The solid seven from the -Fur-  West are expectedto -rive material aid  in the House redistribution committee  in connection with ��������� the opening up of  the present constituencies of British  Columbia.  Here is the hi test revised proposal  for redistribution ln.'the Pacific coast  province: Vancouver^ city, with a  single member at Ihe'present time, is  to get an additional member, it is  planned, thus having two members at  large for the city proper.  FOR NOKTII&HORE  It is also proposed to'provide a. member for North Vancouver city and the  municipalities on the hoi th shore, that  electoral district possibly also taking  in a portion .of Vancouver city and  perhaps Burnaby, as the population on  the north shore is. not' sufficiently  lurge,, as yet to provide for a member  all to itself. The section of Vancouver  which might he thrown in with North  Arancouveris Hastings Townsite. Another proposal is to .add Squamish to  the suggested new constituency.  Greater-Vancouver,"- covering South  Vancouver and Poiut-Giey, with possibly Burnaby as well,', is to be given a  member, according t'o the latest plans  of those interested ill-redistribution in  Biitish Columbia. |At the present  time most of Gi eater Vancouver is in  the constituency of New Westminster.  MEMBER FOR FRASER VALLEY  New Westminster constituency will  probably be confined,, after redistiibu-  tion, -to New .Westminster city and  the immediate district, an. additional  member being suggested for the farming district of Delta, Surrey, Langley  and Richmond.     -  Vancouver Island now has two members, with the northern portion of the  Island forming ii part of: the Comox-  Atlin district. It has now been proposed that the.whole island be divided  into three districts, comprising Aric-  torid, Vancouver Island South and  Vancouver Island North, thus elimin  ating Comox from the present constituency of Cotnox-Atlin;  NEW RIDING IX NORTH  Northern British Columbia, which  now forms part of this constituency,  will be in future, according to authentic reports, bean electoraldistrict by itself.  Yale-Cariboo will probably be divided into two districts. Kamloops and  the western section forming one, and  the Okanagan and Boundary comprising the other. It is not supposed that  there will be any material change in  the Kootenay constituency in Eastern  British Columbia unless a poition of  it is added to the proposed new Ok.-in-  iigan-Boundary electoral district.  WEEK'S WORK ON DAM  Main Foundations for Dam Nearly Ready  For Cement���������Cement Run on  Aprons This Week  JUDGEMENT AGAINST  PENTICTON  /  The work of the present week'on.  the dam will be surpriss to many, who  are watching the pi ogress m.-ul^'wee'k  by week.    The cement was liin-on the  this section are  nearly  readyfor  the'  cement.   ���������  The work of excavation for the  foundations on this half of Ihe dam  was far harder than on the east section iis there were more and much larger boulders to contend with. Some  of the boulders on this section exlen  ding down into the' river bed seven  and eight feet and weighing Several  tons. ���������  At the present rate that the work  is progressing everything will be in  readyness for the forms for the piers  about the end of next week. As soon  as the. foi ms are in and a few feet of  cement in each, in order to keep the  form in place, the high water can come  as soon as it likes as the work can  then go just the same.  Thiee shifts tire now engaged at this  "work and everything is being hurried  along as fust us possible in order to  get the work done before high   water.  Three shifts tire also at work on the  site of the new power station getting  it in readiness so that they can get  the machinery installed by the time  the water in Twenty-mile cieek gets  low as to enable them to have everything in leadiness to turn on the new  power.  The woik on the right-of-way for  the ditch and the flume is getting on  nicely there being about 25 men employed at this work.  At the present time there are about  110 men engaged in the construction'  of the new power plant, there being  about 60 employed at the dam, 25 on  the right-of-way and the balance on  the site of the new power station.

This property,   at the  head of Howe sound, is  being so developed  that it will be perhaps the.  biggest mine in the province  and is  now the  second largest.     It is  within   three hours' run by boat from  Vancouver,    it employs between  700  and 800 men,   and has a monthly payroll  of nearly $75,000.     Expenditures  are  now  being   made  to   more  than  double  the payroll and the  output of  the  mine.     The  original property is  also being added to  by the acquisition  of other holdings.  HIGH COMMISSIONERSHIP  TO BE HAD FOR ASKING  Victoria, B. C, March 20.- From a  statement made by a prominent politician tonight there is now no doubt  that Sir Richard McBride, premier of  British Columbia, can have the com-  niissionership of Canada foi- the asking. In fact, the party referred to  goes so f.-ir as to state that he has it in  his pocket and has had for some time.  The hard times sire over. The other  day a twenty dollar bill came to town  and was cashed within the city limits.  The temperature dropped a few  degrees the begitiing of last week, and  signs of snow can be seen on the mountains.  Another store building is being  erected-on Tenth Av. The foundation  of which is almost completed.  Si S. Cygnet made her first trip on  the 25th inst with freight for this  point. Captain Fraser Campbell was  at the wheel.  The new river boat which, will connect the two lakes has been launched"  at Summerland and the contractors  will give her a trial trip in a few days.  The Neil McLean's cabin, built by  him in the early daySi is the thing of  the past. This building which was at  one time the only respectable edifice  on the. townsite was used for many  purposes. It took the place of the  polling booth, church, dance hall, hospital etc, but as other buildings of a  more modern style sprung up it began  to look rather out of date so had to  give way to the newer idea imported  by the "Chechaco". Mr. McLean has  now another house going up on the  outskirts of the town.  The mountain sheep are returning  to their summer range. Throughout  the winter they could be seen on the  hills overlooking the Thomas ranch.  It has been very difficult to obtain  photographs of them owing to the imperfect light although several persons  have been within close enough range  to do so had the conditions been fuvor-  orable. There are several fine heads  amongst the various bands. .  Several mining properties on Poplar  cieek, near Kaslo, have been bonded  to a Arictorin Syndicate. Tlie amount-  to be paid is said to be in the neighborhood of $100,000.  For the week ending March 21st the  Granby smelter treated 22,920 tons of  the company's ore and 301 tons from  other mines, a total of 23,221 tons, and  shipped 458,000 lbs. of blister copper.  Not far from Clinton, railway construction at Kelly and Pear lakes, has  exposed several seams of coal.  -I-i-UJi  ed reference lo the registrar to determine the ruiluic and the extent of the  damages for delay in delivery of material in the suit brought byMacdougall  Bros, against the Municipality of Pen-  tieton.  "The plaintiffs seek," said his lordship, "to recover damages from the defendant for In each of a contract entered into on July 21st, 15)11. The contract provides for the perfomance by  the plaintiffs of till the labor required  for the construction of a waterworks  system and the supply of a certain portion of the materials necessary for  that purpose. The defendant agreed  to supply the bulk of the material.  Evidence was adduced to show that''  the contract, to be carried out profitably, required that the work should-  be pursued continuously fiom the. time  of commencement,and this would necessitate ii constant, adequate supply  of materials being on hand. The  plaintiffs claim delay on the pail of  the municipality in delivering material  and loss therefrom."  The defendants, in addition to denying that any delay occured, invoke the  provisions of Section 116 of the specifications dealing with the supply of material and liability.  At the trial of the action Mr. Malcolm A. M.-icdonald appeared for the  plaintiffs, and Mr. S. S. Taylor, K. C,  for the defendant municipality,  MINING NOTES  Three niines in the Slocan district,  shipped zinc ore to the United States  dining January and February and it  is expected that during the coining  summer the output of zinc ore and  concentrates from this district will he  the largest in history. The Rurnbler-  . Cariboo,- Van Roi and Standard .-ire  all expected to ship more heavily than  in 1913, and the Hewitt mine at Silver-  ton, where the mineral separations  process has been installed, is 'expected  to be a heavy producer. In January  the Rambler-Cariboo shipped 73 tons,,  in February 40 tons; the Van Roi  shipped 286 tons in January and 198-  tons in February; the Standard shipped 449 tons in January and 464 tons  in February. The total for January"  was 808 tons and for February 702  tons, making a total for the two  months of 1,510 tons.  METEOROLOGICAL.

This is the last month of the Canadian fiscal year.      Last year's Canadian  trade   passed   the  billion-dollar  mark  for tin: fust time.    The   total value   of  ; exports and .importsWas $1,OS5,000,000  .For    eleven   months   of  the'   current  "year the increase is neaily  $60,000,000.  . over the,same period last year.    This  ��������� state-incut is more , encouraging in   de-  1 ' tail than  in gross.    Tlie more interesting feature, is the fact Unit while   the  ..total gain is   less than  $60,000,000   the  exports  of  domestic' goods'  have  increased by $SI,000,000.    There is a considerable decline, in   the   value  of imports foi- consumption.  The excess of imports for consumption over domestic exports last year  .was;$320,000,000. This year the excess  of imports will probably not exceed  $200,000,000 and it may be less. This is  more nearly the normal condition of  trade in a country which is carrying  on large development works' and receiving many emigrants with goods or  money to their credit. Bunkers and  other expert financiers have been  pointing out to Canadians the increase  of liability shown by the excess of imports as well.sis by the report of financial transactions.  There is no doubt that a large part  of the excess of imports is due to  the  ; extravagent purchases of articles  of  luxury and other nonproductive superfluities.    Nor   is  there any   question  that this class of  purchases  has  been  curtailed during the last few  months.  The  imports  for   consumption    have  been reduced by the millions that were  expended in the erection and  furnishing of expensive, dwellings, in automobiles and other articles  which are  desirable but not necessary, in costly articles   of    dress   and    adornment,    in  luxuries of food  and  drink.    In   part  unnecessaries may    have   diminished  exports, more largely  they  increased  imports.    Their use seemed to indicate  good times- but in effect it made for a  condition   of stringency.   The    trade  table of this   year show more healthy  conditions than prevailed 'a year ago,  and before  long we  shall see  the  na-  turel   results  of   moderation  coupled  with  greater  natural productiveness.  For it seems to happen that when people are  spending and  buying  abnormally they do not produce in the same  proportion,  or   even  at  the   normal  standard.  metallic list were   as. follows;...copper,.  7d,t)75,S32  lb;  value   $11,753,440;  gold.  7SI,525 us-., $16,216,131; pig ii on, 1,125,-  5)67 tons, $16,510,012, lead,37,002,703 lb;'  $1,57-1,705; nickel,  49,676,772   lb.,   $14,-  5);)3,(J32; silver,  31,750,618 o-/..,.

The.record of production  by*': I'uoviuces    showed    that    Ontario'  stood.at the  head.'-of the   list   with   a, 1  'value of $5S,65)7,602,   or 40.7.j%  of  the  total; British   Columbia  came  second  with n-value of $28,529,081,. or   l!).Sl%:  then followed Nova Scotia   with   $19,-  305, 545.or. 13.-1%:..Alberta with $13,844.  622, or 9. 6%, and Quebec with $13,303,'-  049, or 9.24 %.    In  ihe above  c pnr-  isons, un account is taken of the large  iron smelting .-ind steel making industries of Nova Scolia, as the pig iron  used there is entirely from imported  ore. ',,, ;;.  Reports    were    also    presented     by  Theodore C. Denis,  superintendent  of  mines for Quebec,   and   from   Thomas  W.   Gibson,   deputy   minister   of   Ontario, showing the mineral production  of those province  for 15)13.    The  Ontario report  placed   Ihe   value,   of   the  mineral production   at  $52,999,5)57,   of  which   $37,598,5)55    was   metallic    and  $15,491,002 liiin-iuelallic,   the total   exceeding   the   previous    year's   production by 9.0%.    The production  of  gold  was   22('.S3'voy,., of   which ���������more  than  ji'1% came from   ihe 'Porcupine   mines.  The oulpi-t of silver was 25),681,975 oz.,  showing a slight del reuse.   The report  points out that the high water mark in  in  silver   production   was  apparently  reached in 15)11,   when   the  yield   was  31,507,791 oz. The outputof nickel had  increased in value nearly 11%. and copper 16%.    The production   of  pig iron  was 648,S99 tons, worth  $S,719,892,   an  increase of 10% in quantity.

This is, in fact,'the law  in Australia and New Zealand, where  use. and occupation constitute the only  title to mineral lands.  The committee on mining law .of the  Mining and Metallurgical Society of  America has" placed itself .on^-ecord as  in favor of such a policy. ��������� Dr. Brock  put the matter in a nutshell in his contribution lo the discussion when he  said: "The mining rights should be  acquired by staking and applying for  them. They should be held as long as  ii person really desires them for bona  fide operations. They should revert  to the public domain .when the holder  has no further interest, or only a speculative interest, in these rights.  ��������� This Mil be accomplished by annual  rental, and where necessary, by working conditions.  Fred Kelfer, engineer for the B. C  Copper Company, took a di.'feient  view in the discussion, holding that  mineral lands should be permanently  alienated, subject only lo the payment  of acreage tax, except in the case of  placers for which he advocated a leasing system. Iu case of taxes being unpaid for a year title should -.lapse. He  advocated as an ideal form of mine  taxation that such should be based on  net profits after deducting mining,  freight and treatment. Mr. Keller is  a strong supporter of the "British Columbia mining law, which does not  permit extra latiiiiil rights and in his  model in regard to staking. He says:  "Although ii United States citizen myself,'with possibly ii bias toward the  institutions of my own country, still,  after an experience with the laws of  Mexico, the United States and British  Columbia, I have no hesitancy in affirming that the mining laws of this  province are, on the whole by far the  most liberal and best devised to  further the mining industry, and with  ajfew. nijnor'changes could be. taken.,,-i.s.  model."���������Mining and Engineering  Record. -      .

In view of the numerous serious accidents, which from lime to time befall out-citizens through the dangerous  conditions of our sidewalks, I write to  you trusting that through the medium  of your paper this dangerous condition  of affairs" may be brought to the attention of those responsible and at  once remedied.  It is hardly necessary to go into details but to give a stated case or two  as to the dangers piesented, take for'  example the walk from the corner of  Mr. Boyd's house to the bridge. The  walk in the first place is not wide  enough for two people to pass in safety. A single step to the side means a  fall of six or seven feet into ;i rock  bed. From the bank on down toward  the school, some 50 feet, is another  deep cut which needs a rail and also  below Creelinun and Lyall's store a  rail is required. The. new walk fiom  Scott Avenue to Daly Avenue presents another death trap to anyone  using iL after dark.  AVhiit wu need is wider walks-and  where there aro deep cuts and ravines  on both sides, rails on both sides.  Trusting that before, many moons,  rails will be placed iit all dangerous  points and many costly and pa inful  accidents averted.  Yours Truly,  C. P.

A. AVint won his case against C. A.  Kennedy in Spokane hist week. Both  parties are of Spokane. Mr. Kennedy  as owner of the Springbrook ranch,  which is situated between Keremeos  and Penticton, sold or exchanged the  ranch for property in Spokane belonging to Mr. AVint. After taking over  the ranch Mr. AVint claimed misrepresentation, hence the law suit and  flu- result.  The masquerade hall held in the  town hall on Friday was well-attended. Owing to the fact that so few  men masked it tended to somewhat  put a. damper on the merriment which  generally prevails at such events.  Great credit is due the ladies who  turned out, one and all, in costume  many of which were very pretty and  comical. A splendid supper was provided at the Keiemeos Hotel. The  Princeton Orchestra Society provided  thi> music which was a success. The  dance broke up at 3:30.  Miss Ella lnnis left for Sasl atonn on  Monday. She was accompanied by  her sister, Miss Hattie, .-is far as Penticton. Miss Ella has for the past six  months been assistant in the local post  office and while engaged at that work  proved herself to be always willing  and agreeable in her duties. It was  with great regret that her many  friends saw her leave, but all trust  that she will meet with success in  Saskatoon.

This is a matter worthy of  our consideration and I heleive that if  we could only interest the people in  the Valley to put up a good exhibit as  well as. entering in the competitive  class.

O. L.,  No.  1770,  was  held in  the Presbyterian   church  on Thursday evening, -March 26th.   D.  McCurdy    performed   the tduties   of  chairman and the speaker of the evening  was J.  W.   Wliitely,   provincial  organizer of the  Orange Lodge Association.    Iri commencing! his  address  Mr.   AAThitely  emphaized  two   differences between .Protestantism  and Roman Catholicism.    AVith   Protestantism, the Protestant Church  and  the  Protestant people- are one and: the  same thing, the people are the Church.  On the other hand, the Roman  Catholic Church and the Roman  Catholic  people are two separate things.   The  people belong to the Church and obey  it, but have no  part., whatever in determining its policy. Roman Catholics  must obey   implicitly '.and    without  question the  deerefcs of the  Church,  or to putit in other words, Protestant,  believe  in  individual   liberty of conscious   and   iu   the. right of   private  judgment.       The     Roman    Catholic  Church denies both of these privileges  to members   of her communion..  Another difference between the two systems of religion was that Protestants  with  very few  exceptions believed in  the separations  of chinch and state,  while    the   Roman   Catholic   Church  held   the  position   that the Pope was  supreme and   that   civil government  should acknowledge   his  supremacy..  The speaker said that this was the  reason- that the Orange Association  opposed the Catholic Church.  The speaker pointed out that British  Columbia was the only province. in  Canada where no special privileges  were granted to religious'denominations and he urged the members of the  audience to keep these evils out. The  speaker then gave instances done by  the Orange Association in different  parts of Canada, and particularly in  British Columbia, in stopping privileges of this kind and in niaintuing the  principal of equal rights to all and  special privileges to none.  The speaker also discussed the situation in Ulster and pointed out that  through the compulsar Land Purchase  Act the people of Ireland were enabled  to buy their farms and the British  government loaned them the money  to pay of them. No such privilege has  been extended to any other part of  the United Kingdom. Ireland was  also over represented in the Biitish  House of Commons, having thirty-five  more members than she was"entitled  to, itccoiding to population. Ireland  had been well treated by the British  Parliament and she had no grievance  that could be attributed to the union.  The province of Ulster has seventy-five  per cent of the industries of Ireland  and in event of a separate parliament  being established at Dublin would  have to pay the big share of the increased amount that would be necessary to run the government of the  country.  The people of Ulster had always  been loyal to the crown, while the  Nationalists and Home Rulers had  been disloyal.   The Nationalists in the  House of Commons cheered  every  reverse to British arms in South Africa,  one of their number had led the Transvaal brigade and fought against British  soldiers,  and  on  every   occasion  possible had  heaped  insult- upon  the  Union   Jack    and     had   condemned  British  connection.    Yet  these  were  the  men  Mr.  Asquith  had  sold   the  loyal and   patriotic  people of  Ulster.  But Mr.   Asquith   would find that although  he  had sold   Ulster  to  John  Redmond, he would not be able to deliver the goods.    Some people claimed  that Home rule would simply give  to  the Irish people  the  right to  control  their own affaii s,  but  any man   who  made that statement had not read the  Home Rule Bill.   By the bill, Ireland  is given   contiol  of  the  postage and  customs, and excise all the machinery  whereby she can  become a  separate  nation, and the aim of the nationalists  is   to   severe   Ireland   fiom  the   empire and  make  it a   separate, nation  with a flag  of her own.    Nationalists  leaders and speakers have  time and  again   stilted   that   this   is   the   goal  of their asperations   and  the  British  people-should not  be misled owing  to  the fact   that  their   expressions are  purpously a little more guarded at the  present  time.     The  speaker claimed  that the people  of Great Britain  had  never  given  an  opinion  m  favor of  Home Rule and  no government had  the light to  pass'ii   bill  of  this  kind  without a mandate  from the  people.  Mr. Whitly in conclusion   pointed out  that every Orangemen was an Imperialist being pledged to maintain thecon-  nection between   Canada,   Newfoundland  and  the  mother county and to  uphold  the integrity of the Empire.  At  the  conclusion  of   the  address  a  very hearty vote of thanks was tendered the speaker on-motion of Rev. A.H.  Cameron  and D. J.   lnnis.     Refreshment   were then  served after  which  the meeting was brought to a close by  the singing of the national anthem.  EGGS FOR HATCHING  FKOM Imported Single Comb It. I. llcds.
