Victoria, Dec. 1���������Chief Fire Warden  GladAvin, of V.-incouver, has tendered  his annual report to Hon. W. Rous,  chief commissioner of lands. The rc-  poit Minis up u number of suggestions  for increasing the efficiency of the service.  The number of forest fires reported  for the season amounteil to 1181. The  cause in 335 cases was sparks from  locomotives or donkey engines. Campers arc charged with 162 and settlers  land clearing with 18-1. Lightning is  set down as the cause in 103 cases and  374 fires are recorded "causes 1111-  kitoAvn.  The total estimate of damage done  is $(529,915, apportioned as follows:  To standing timber $103,976: to cu t  timber $63,974; to improvements $371,-  985.  Six persons during the file fighting  were .suffocated, one man Avas killed  by a falling tree two Avere seriously  injured. A total fire fighting force of  4,452 men Avere employed by the government, involving a disbursement of  $35,000 by the government and $37,394  by pri vate, employers.  The total value of the propc-i ty protected is placed at $1,165,000. An area  ,of 218,388 acres Avas burned over. The  fines for breaches of the Rush Fire act  amounted to $1,275. The total expenditure of the government amounted  to $185,902.  The warden suggests that the government should share in the expense  of burning the bush, refuse, etc., left  by the lodgers either in the autumn or  in the early spring. Aha-fire warden  should be -empowered to impress into  the service any person at a wage of 25  cents per hour. Increased staffs, more  wardens, rangers, etc., are also, urged.  B. C.

AN UNDESERVED STIGMA  THE HOSPITAL BAZAAR  German Paper Attacks Business Methods  of Reputable Vancouver Firm  The Ladies' Auxilhary of the Hedley  Huspit'al scored an unqiiidified success  in the bazaar \vhich they gave 011 Friday last in.Fraternity hall.     The bazaar av.-is offered to the public in afternoon and in the various booths \vas  displayed the array' of fancy '-and useful articles which they hud provided  for sale in aid of. the hospital fund,  These   booths   were   arranged   with  greatest-taste 'and skill and the ladies  in   charge, proved   themselves   adept  saleswomen  for in the afternoon: they  had disposed of nearly everything and  t;liere was but little left for the evening.   For the children  the fishpond  Avas the booth  that excited  most interest.   By Avay of entertain men t  a  musical program Avas provided both  afternoon and evening,   and. on  the  latter ecca.sion   wiis  more  extensive  and varied.   The   instrumental music  was provided  ,)V   M*.'*--   Sproule   and  Mrs.  Lyon  on piano and violin   and  contributed largely to the enjoyment  of those present.    Songs Avere sung by  Mrs.  Forbes and'Messrs'.  Whiteinan  and Oliver the former giving "Father  O'FJyiin" and the latter "The Midship-  nite", but  the feature of the program  was the singing of Mrs.  J. A. Brown,  who sang Flight of Ages with   fine  effect and  in response to a hearty encore sang "Then  why don't you ask  Me".    Another feature of the program  which    was  much   enjoyed   was   the  recitation      of     Whitcoinb     Riley's  "Granny's Coin/.', to Our   House"   by  little   Erniinie   Wheeler   which   was  very cleverly done, showing as it did  wonderful  talent  on the  part   of the  child and careful,skilful tuition on the  part of whoever  trained her.    in response  to an   encore she  i-ecitetl the  "Minuet".  Last on the programme but not least  in the interest it created was the vot-  contest for the most popular young  lady. For the contest Miss IJond, Miss  Eniilv Jackson, Miss McLean. Miss  Boeing. Miss Clare and Miss Mable  Robinson were nominated. Five cents  counted as a vote and it was clearly a  case of where money talked. Very  soon Miss Jackson and Miss Bond shot  ahead in the voting and as it became  plainly a contest between the supporters of these two the others were allowed to drop behind. The contest  terminated only when time was called  and then it was found that. Miss Jackson stood 71-1 and Miss IJond 710 while  the contest, netted the fund $77,55.  The total proceeds of the bazaar totalled $269.80.  Vancouver papers do well to resent  the action of the Monetary Times of  Toronto in repeating a dishonest attack of a German paper, the National  Zeitung, upon the Vancouver financial  firm of Alvo von Alvenslehen. That  firm advertised in a German paper  setting forth the advantages of Vancouver and of British Columbia as a  field for profitable investment and  went on to explain the class of invest?  moots they specially recommended  and this ad was seized upon by the  Zeitung and distorted so as. to make  the firm appear as a wild-catting concern.  ' The ad when reproduced and t'lius  given to British Columbia' readers who  throughly ..understand ; conditions'  Iiere is found to be a plain unvarnish-  ed.statemeht of facts and instead' of it  subjecting the Vancouver firm to the  suspicion of Avild-catting can only be  taken as evidence of the conservative  methods pursued by them in their recommendations co intending investors.  The Monetary Times is being taken  to task for its apparent approval of  the Gerniau paper's attack, for while  the action of the German paper niaA* be  due to its ignorance of Canadian affairs, that excuse can scarcely be urged  for the MonetaiA' Times.  STILL INDECISIVE  First Day's Polling in British Elections  Give  Unionists Slight Gain  In 106 seats decided  last  Saturday  the Unionists have 62 and the Liberals  49.   To the Liberal strength may be  added  the  nationalists and  laborites  who are   also   against the House   of  Lords and their 14 seats  added to  the  Liberal strength gives a total of only j over the pipes  LOCAL NEWS  On Sunday last there was about  eight or ten pai lies out deer hunting-  but L.

Mrs. Brown contributed  greatly to the success of the musical  part of the event by her songs which  proved so great a treat to a Hedley  audience.  During her recent trip to Vancouyer  for the Apple Show Mrs. J. A. Brown,  of Keremeos, had the pleasureof hearing the noted Welsh choir which recently completed a tour of the province and of which she was formerly a  member before she came to Canada.  Many of those on this tour she kneAv  quite well and the pleasure of meeting  them again and hearing them give  their concert was by no means the  east enjoyable part of her coast trip.  There were over 30 inches of snow  fell up at the Nickel Plate last month.  This amount so earlv in the season  and the lake still up above the running out point as the result of better  judgment -on the part of the management in saving it, there, will not likely  be an}1;, necessity for pumping before  the end of February, and then about  two or three weeks will be the extent  of pumping. This makes the outlook  particularly good for a long spell of  cheap power next year.  It may be interesting to members of  the golf club to know that .monthly  dues will be suspended for the winter  months beginning with November and  Avill not likely be resumed again until  April or perhaps May. The short days  have pre vented" most of the members  from getting rriiich use of the links  since the. end of October and the executive see no need for continuing the  .monthly duet. It will be well, how*  ever, for all Avho may he in arrears up  to and including October to pay up so  that next spring may find all hands  squared with no arrears being held  over.  The water pipes have all been covered up with dry earth and fine gravel  in gooil liiikl weather with 110 frost in  the. ground and there does not appear  to be any possible danger from frost  this winter no matter how severely  the weather may set in or how long  the cold snaps may continue. Tho  management played in rattling good  luck with the fine nii'd spell which  came along with the beginning of last  week, removing every vestige of frost  there had been up to that time and enabling the use. of scrapers to n'il in  over the dry earth which had been put  63.  There are still 561 seats remaining  to be voted on and unless these go  much moro favorable for the Unionists than the first, 106 it is unlikely  that they will get enough to out-vote  the other three combined, and unless  they can, Britain must, still be ruled  at the dictation of John Redmond.

While   there   is   a    certain    poetic  .-justice   in  the   trei.'tinenl.  which  Sir  Wilfrid Laurier and   his   friends   received  in  the   by-election    of Drum-.  mond-Arthabaska.  in   that  they were  but receiving back the same medicine  and in similar doses  to, that concocted  for Sir Charles Tapper  in   1S96  when  there  was no  naval  question   before  the people and nothing  in   sight  to  suggest service .abroad for   Canadian  troops, it is questionable whether the  opposition are acting wisely   in   referring to it as much as they  have done  during the debate on the address.     If  tire Laurierite candidate   had been defeated on any other issue  than   that  which it is admitted Avas the cause  of  his   downfall      and    the   contention  which won out had been more in line  with their own policy   it would have  been a different matter, but the opposition have scarcely  the  right to  rejoice  with  Bourassa   on  his    victory  obtained by the means  which  appear  to have been employed, for Bourassa's  arguments were as applicable against j  Borden's naval programme as against  Laurier's.    The  opposition, under the  circumstances, are not in a position to  felicitate with Bourassa  on  the result  and they showed to better  advantage  so far as their attitude;   on   that  point  is concerned, when   they sat silent  in  their places and were as undemonstrative as the  ministerialists  when   the  new   member  for   Dninimoiid-Artha-  baska was-introduced in the House.
