The admiralty memorandum asked  for by Mr. Borden from the Imperial  government and obtained by him is in  many respects a remarkable document. There is nothing panicky in its  tone but it tells in plain simple language the story of German naval encroachment, and without asking anything from Canada it tells frankly in  answer  to .Mr.  Borden's  inquiry, the   .,     *...,    Lhe  records of last year show, amounted  to more than for any other disease,  tuberculosis not being an exception.

In his crusade agrrinst  pneumonia Dr. Anderson is producing  the records, which show that lb'l persons died last year, many of whom  were strong, but failed to observe the  proper sanitary precautions.  In his admonitions Monday Dr. Anderson urs/ed sheets instead of woolen  blankets and attacked the practice of  vi-iting where pneumonia patients are  cold for a day or two, and when he  did not show up during the afternoon  it was taken for granted that he had  gone to bed.

THE  DIMINISHING HALO,.  Those who will follow the debates  at Ottawa and .will preserve an open  mind to judge men end measures,on  their merits cannot fail being struck  with the manner in which Premier  Borden is expanding as a leader of the  government, and also they must note  how fast Sir Wilfred's halo is leaving  him under the pettiness of.the style of  opposition warfare which he has. always seen fit to employ when in the  position of leader of the opposition.  As an opposition leader Sir Wilfred  was one time deemed a conspicuous  success for although his methods were  always tainted with petty meanness  they were carried out with the adroit  boldness which always compelled the  same kind of admiration that cannot  be withheld from an expert performei  on a tight-rope in a circus. If ever  there was a parliamentarian tightrope act which was pulled off successfully it was the Torres Vedras incident, ol the memorable session of 1S96;  it was mean and two-faced, but it Avas  done with boldness, and under the peculiar circumstances of thc time, it  went. Borden on thc other hand had a  rugged candor about him that was a  distinct handicap to him as an opposition leader. So had Whitney in Ontario, ami it kept him and his party many  terms in the cold Shades of opposition;  but candor will win out in the end.  The geno-alship just displayed by  Sir Wilfred in forcing a division on the  Macdon:iId by-election after the debate which had been held was puerile.  It coiupe'lcd hi in and his party to take  lhe position of sympathizers with the  Saskatchewan corruptionists. and  (hugs who invaded the Manitoba constituency and were forcibly ejected.  Tho Liberal party paid dearly for a  display of the same kind of sympathy  ���������with the "Cap Sullivan" gang which  wore finally unearthed and. smoked  out by R. R. Gamey in Ontario, and  Sir Wilfred should have taken warning thereat.  Sir Wilfred of course was able in  former times to drop his pettiness in  opposition long enough to be generous  for a brief moment on special occasions, but when he. did so, it was done  in a spectacular sort of way and to  bring grist to his mill. Will he now  make a virtue of a necessity and adopt  a similar plan in the present naval  vote?  FORESTRY   ITEMS.  At least $10(),000,00l) annually .is the.  value placed upon the potential growth  of British Columbia fotests by It.' E.  Benedict, Chief of Operation in the  Forot Branch of the Department of  Lands.  "Bringing the estimate down to its  very In west, the area of 'timber-pro-,  diicing land.-, in the Province is (55,000-  000, acres," says Mr. Benidiet, '-and  every acre should produce 100 board  feet per annum. This would make  our.-timber ci-oiYGA billion feet, worth  about ((i million dollars to the Government, and probably fifteen times that  amount to the "community before' it is  in its final state of manufacture."  At the present time in British Columbia, there is being cut about 1A billion feet pel annum. It is evident  therefore.-that the lumbering industry is just one-quarter developed.  Bub before the full expansion can  tike plac*', the timber must he protected from fire. - A dry season and a  little, carelessness might combine at  anytime to start a blaze which would  undermine the prosperity of the  country. The .importance of prevent-  iny- fires it is impossible to overstate.  The growth of the Province depends  upon the forest.

The bridegroom's present to  the bride was a solid gold extension  bracelet with watcli attached. To the  bridesmaid a solid gold bangle Avith  name engraved. To the maid of honor a pearl broach. To the groomsman a fine stick pin. After the reception the happy couple left by auto for  Oroville, where they took the train for  S n Francisco via Spokane, and the  coast cities.
