I  AN INTERESTING   REPORT  Lack  of a  Virile Opposition  Detracts from Interest  of Session       ;  Royal Commission  on   Forestry   Make  Important Recommendations ;  TAX REDUCTION CHIEF TOPIC  Railway Bill to Come Down Soon- -Poll  . Tax * Survives,   But   Had   Narrow  Escape���������Signs of Short Session.  Victpriii, Feb. 3.���������Hon. Mi*. Bowser*  moved the first reading of the Assessment act. In doing so he estimated  that it would mean a total reduction  in the taxation of $155,000. He pointed out that poll tax collections ran up  to over* $200,000 a year, and the Government was not yet in a position to  abolish ' it, since , it was the only-  method of taxing Orientals and the  floating ' population. , It had been  urged that only the Orientals pay poll  tax, but if this were done, it woiild-  leave after the expenses of collection  only a little over $26,000. He declared  that, mathematically worked out, the  man with an income under* $2,000 had  a greater reduction * in his income tax  than, the man paying on over* $7,000..  Mr. Parker Williams criticised the  reductions as unfair to the working-  man. ,  '  Mr. Hawthornthwaite moved the  adjournment of debate.  Some clauses of the Bill to provide  medical inspection in schools were  strongly opposed in Committee of the  whole by the Socialists and the Liberals arid at the request of Mr. Brewster,' the Bill was finally held over* for  further consideration.  The delegation from the Vancouver  Exhibition .Association interviewed,  the Executive with a. request for a  grant of $50,000 for* prizes for the Exhibition. Consideration was promised.  The Railway Committee passed a  Bill to incorporate the Port Moody &  Indian River Railway Company, but  cut out the power to, ouild branch  lines further than the six miles allow-  by the British Columbia Railway Act.  Victoria, February 5.���������During the  week good progress has been made  with, the legislation of the session.  Three Bills at least have passed third  reading, namely; The amendment to  the Public Inquiries Act to enable  Commissioners to take evidence under oath; the amendment to the Coroners'Act to allow evidence to be taken in shorthand; and the amendment  to the Notaries Appointment Act,  leaving the work in the hands of the  Attorney-General's Department. Of  the three bills only the latter occasioned much controversy, the Opposition maintaining that it was a move  of the Attorney-General tb secure  more patronage, though he maintained that it was to secure the appointment of a more efficient and less  numerous class of notaries.  Four important Bills have passed  second reading, namely: The amendments to. the: -Assessment Act, the  Public Schools Act, the Act to Establish Juvenile Courts, and the Bill to  provide for medical inspection in  schools. The Assessment Act was severely criticised by the four Oppositionists, but was allowed to pass second  reading without division, but it is  understood that Mr. Hawthornthwaite  will move a number of amendments  in Committee of the Whole. The  amendment to the Factories Act exempting the Factory Inspector from  supoena, was also regarded with suspicion by the Opposition, though the  reasons for* the Bill were very clearly  explained by the Attorney-General.  An interesting resolution passed  during the week was that introduced  by Mi*. Tisdall requesting the Dominion Government to take steps to secure the better settlement of their  lands in the Railway belt. .  Alarmed  There was a young lady named Banker,  Who slept while the ship lay at  anchor;  She awoke in dismay  When she heard the mate say,  "Now hoist up the top sheet and  spanker."  VICTORIA, Jan 25���������The interim report of. the royal commission of inquiry on timber and forestry, consist-,  ing of Hon. F.J. Fulton. A.S. Goodeve  M..P., and Al C. Flumnierfelt, appoin-  ed by the provincial government last  summer to inquire into the whole ques--  tioh'of forestry in British Columbia,  was presented in the legislature this  afternoon, and recommends that the  tenure of licenj-es be extended from  year to year until all merchantable  timber has been removed.   A recommendation is also made that provision  be made for the opening for settlement  of all agricultural land held under timber license, as it-is required for faring  ing purposes.     The final report of the  commission, it may be said, will not be  ready for some months.   The interim  report reads as follows :  To  his Honor Thomas Wilson Pater-  son, Lieutenant Governor of the  Province of British Columbia.  ��������� May it Please Your Honor-Wo, your  commissioners appointed on the ninth  day of July 1909, for the purpose of  making inquiry into all matters connected with the timber resources of  the province of British Columbia and  to report the facts found by us and the  means  that -should he adopted to conserve the present supply of timber, to  guard  against fire and to utilize vacant lands suitable for afforestation;  have the honor to submit the following interim report: .  The commission commenced its work  on the 10th day of August, 1909, holding* its first session at-Victoria and  from that time until the 30th day of  September, sittings being held in different parts of the province, some 90  witnesses being heard, besides receiving memorials and hearing deputations  from various parties and municipalities interested. In addition the commission attended the National Congress on Conservation of Natural resources, held at Seattle on the 26th,  27th and 28th of August.  ��������� The questions to be investigated by  the commission are many arid of the  utmost importance, so important in  fact, that while the commission has  already obtained a vast amount of evidence, covering considerably over 1000  typewritten pages, it feels that it  should continue its investigations still  further and exhaust all possible  sources of information before venturing to submit a final report.  At the outset, however, the attention  of the commission was called to the  fact that at the last session of the legislature the government announced  that it had come to the determination  that the tenure of special timber licenses would, at the next session of  the legislature, receive the attention  of the administration, in the way of  some provision that would make for  the perpetuity, of the. license until the  timber is removed, but on such terms  and conditions as the government  then may deem prudent in the best  interests of the province and people of  British Columbia, and, in consequence  the honorable premier has requested  us, if possible to make an interim report dealing with this question of  tenure.  We, therefore,  recommend that the  proposed amendments be so framed as  to provide that the special timber licenses,  other than those provided for*  in sub-section (2)  of section 57 of the  Land act,  shall   be  renewable   from  year to year, so long as there is on the  land included in such license merchantable timber in  sufficient quantity to  make it commercially valuable (proof  of which  might  be required by  the  chief commissioner) but that renewal  shall  be subject   to   the payment of  such rental or license fee, and such tax  or royalty,   and to such  terms, conditions,  regulations  and restrictions as  may   be   fixed or*   imposed   by any  statute or order in  council in force at  the time renewal is made;  that power  should be provided or* reserved for the  chief   commissioner   or   Government  where, after inspection it is found the  land  is fit for tillage and settlement,  and required for that purpose, tliat he  or they may require the licensee to re  WIRELESS SCORES ANOTHER  Crew of Sinking Steamer Kentucky Saved by Alamo���������Both Have United  Wireless Equipment  New York,' Feb. 4���������Thanks again'  to the wireless, Captain Moore and his  crew of 47 men are safe on board the  Midlory liner Alamo, bound for Key  West tonight, while their vessel, the  Kentucky, was sunk off Cape Hatteras.  The Kentucky is a wooden vessel of  990 gross tonnage, 203 feet, long, and  was hound from New York to the Pacific to carry passengers between Ta-  coma and Alaskan ports for the Alaska  Pacific Steamship company. The latest . report received by the United  Wireless company in New York tonight said she had gone down.'  The first news of the " Kentucky's  plight was received at the United  Wireless company's station at Cape  Hatteras at 11 o'clock this morning.  The' operator heard the urgent international distress signal, "S. O. S.,"  followed by this message:'.  "We are sinking. Our latitude is  32.40, longitude 76.30."  Almost simultaneously the operator  heard from the steamship Alamo that  she ''was .making'all speed to the sinking vessel's assistance. Thereafter no  message .was received from the Kentucky, indicating that water had in'  terfered with the power, putting her  wireless apparatus out of commission.  The navy department in the meantime flashed wireless messages along  the Atlantic ��������� coast,, dispatching the  battleships Louisiana aud'two revenue  cutters to the scene, but at 5 o'clock  this evening -word came from the  Alamo that she had arrived first and  had taken off. all safely.  Bad luck was the Kentucky's lot immediately after she left New York  for her 14,000-mile voyage on January  23rd. Her one bit of good luck was  that wireless instruments were, installed just before she departed. One hundred and fifty miles off Sandy Hook  the vessel began to, leak,, but by working the pumps valiantly Captain Moore  was able, to reach Newport.News with  16 inches of water.in the vessel's hold.  Repairs were made, and the ship received a certificate from Lloyd's and  the United States inspector at the  port saying that she was sound and  seaworthy. Notwithstanding this assurance, T. A. MeLarriey, formerly  night operator at the Waldorf-Astoria  in New York, who had shipped with  the vessel when she left this port, refused, to continue the voyage because  his parents in Monticello, N.. Y., had a  premonition .that something would  happen. They bombarded him with  messages to this effect and in deference to their wishes he obtained a  substitute operator, W. D. Maginnis,  who sent out the call which saved the  lives of his shipmates today.  Savannah, Ga., Feb. 4,���������Wireless  reports received here tell of the heroism of Wireless Operator W. G. McGinn is of the Kentucky, who sat at  his key sending his call for aid out  into the air until the inrushing waters  drowned out his dynamo and made his  instruments mute. Just as the current  failed the black smoke from the alamo's funnels was seen as she came  rushing to the rescue. When the crew  had gained the deck of the Alamo  Captain Moore of the Kentucky publicly thanked McGinnis, and the rescued crew cheered him.  MACHINERY ARRIVES  Two   Carloads   Awaiting   Attention of  '        Erecting Engineer  On Tuesday two car loads of machinery arrived at Hedley station from  Sherbrooke, Quebec, and now awaits  the attention of the erecting engineer,  who is expected along every train.  The machinery is quite massive in  appearance, one casting alone weighing 10,000 lbs. and it is all for the  power house to cany out the changes  outlined in last week's paper.  If the erecting engineer were on  hand the machinery should be installed and in operation by the first of  March. .If it were ready to .turn on  right now, it couldn't' come in at a  better time, for the past ten days cold  weather has made it difficult to keep  everything going.  It looks as if there will be water  enough to finish out February which  is already more than one third gone,  and after that there will be a hustle  to get the changes made in the milling  plant which are to be made and have  fill ready to start up again with the  new water-when the snow has melted  sufficiently to raise the streams. Ln  spite of the intense cold of the early  part of the winter which threatened  to tie up everything, the plant- has  been kept in almost constant operation and a successful season's work  has resulted.  WE'RE NOT ORE THIEVES  FREE TEXT BOOKS  Consequently We Don't Need Gordon's  Ore Samples Bill  OTTAWA. Feb. 2.���������There was a  spirited debate in the Senate on the  second reading of the bill to amend  the Criminal Code making it a punishable offense for persons to have  precious ore in their possession without being able to give a satisfactory  explanation of how it was obtained.  This was the bill brought forward in  the Commons by Mr. Gordon, of Nip-  pissing, endorsed by the minister of  justice and passed.  Senator Lougheed opposed the bill.  He would not seriously object if the  law was restricted to the province of  Ontario but he thought it going too far*  to say that everywhere in Canada  men must be regarded as criminals  who possess specimens of precious ores  for which they-could not account and  that if they could not account for*  them they should be required to do so  before a criminal court. There were  deposits of low grade ore in British  Columbia, Saskatchewan and Alberta  from which collections had been accumulated for many years and he  doubted if the owner of these collections could in all cases satisfactorily  explain where the specimens came  from.  In many cases prospectors were going through British Columbia and  bringing in specimens of ore. that it-  would hardly be desirable that they  should be put in the position of having to explain in a criminal court the  possession of their samples. He thought  the bill should be limited to the Cobalt district.  The'biU'w.-'.s given a second reading  on the understanding that the principle was endorsed and the committee  stage was set down for a. week hence.  A bill to incorporate the Merchants'  Bank of Canada pension fund was  read the third time.  Plan  Appears   to   Have   Worked  Government   Saved   Money  for Parents  Well  move the timber from such land within a fixed time, at the end of which  period the land shall be opened tor  settlement upon such terms as the  government may see fit.  Mr. David Wilson, officer in charge  of the free text book branch of the  Department of Education, reports  that the system has worked well since  the branch was opened in 190S. Since  that time 430 schools have been supplied with a larger or smaller proportion of these books. The net cost of  these books to the Province since tho  system was  inaugurated is $32,763.30.  The Free Text-book Branch distributed during the past year school  books and supplies which would have  cost parents and school boards $33,-  422.15. To place these in the hands of  the school children of the Province  through the Free Text-book Branch  of the Education Department called  for an expenditure of $25,637.37, the  items of which are:  Text books (laid down cost)..$20,914.9S  Distribution (freight, etc.)...     1,376.74  Distribution (salaries of staff")   3,445.65  The net profit of the  is, therefore, $7,784.78,  of profit 30A per cent.  $25,637.05  year's business  the percentage  Febiuary thus far has proved a trying month on the woodpile. As much,  or almost as much, wood was burned  during the first week in February as  during the last three weeks in January.  A glance at the temperature leadings  in another column will show why this  is so. When the mean temperature  for a week figures out from 16 to 20  degrees of frost, it is mighty cold  weather* no matter how fine and bright  the days may seem. In fact February  hns been quite a hit of a josher���������making us believe we were having the  finest kind of weather and all the  while the woodpile was slowly but  surely vanishing into thin air.

Our neighbor, the Star, threw out  an excellent suggestion recently  which we wish t<> apply in the cause,  of conservation.' That suggestion was  '��������� to set aside a good large area in the  Hope. Mountains for a! provincial park.  The government of Ontario wisely provided such an asset for that province a  few years ago from its wild lands, and  British Columbia has a vastly greater  area at her disposal for such purposes,  than Ontario.  For this purpose it is difficult to find  a 11101 e suitable spot than the Hope  Mountains, for a score of reasons. Its  comparative proximity to coast c*itieL*  where population may first be expected to become congested, would be  sufficient in itself to decide the matter  of location, and then there is the eminent fitness of the locality itself and  the scenery and facilities for recreation it has to offer which should leave  it almost without a. rival.  More    important still  is  the great  step in advance in   the  cause, of conservation, for the district forming the  park would cover the head waters of  various important streams flowing in  different directions, and those are  the  regions that must   be  kept inviolate  from the devastating ravages of fire  and lumbermen.    To set it aside as a  provincial park need not mean the tying up of the mineral wealth of the  region which could still be exploited  under necessary restrictions,    but it  would never do to allow mining operations to be carried on in the free and  haphazard way that has often resulted  in laying waste large  tracts   of  valuable timber land without adequate return.    To us in the  Similkameen   valley it is most important that the  timber wealth at the head waters  of   the  Similkaineen    river    and     tributary  streams be preserved to ensure  plentiful   and   unfailing   supply   of    water  every  day in the   year, as  well as  to  lessen the danger of destructive floods  in time of   high   water.    Floods   and  landslides are the immediate penalties  resulting   from    allowing     mountain  areas  to  be denuded of their timber  wealth, while the preservation of the  timber acts as a  natural reservoir to  hold back the water until the  surplus  from the melting snows in springtime  has had time   to flow  off.

Mountain Discussed-  *>-   ' An Innocuous Document  Coast papers last week published  extracts from a report made by Lewis  Hind on the feasibility of a route over  the Hope mountains for the proposed  Trunk -<Wagon -road from the coast  into the interior of the province. It  appears to have been a somewhat  lengthy'document and is remarkable  on the .score of length rather than  from any" information it-contained  that will be of any real benefit in se-  cui-ing'tlTe'end' in view.  Itfstarts out'with the sentence "On  November 1st I anived at Princeton  and,was), informed that owing to a recent "snowfall it would-be impossible  to get up to Summit camp." It next  tells of where ho had entertained the  hope of said snow disappearing in a  few days."* Of course it is a habit the  snow on that summit is likely to have  in the month of November. Then from  that out,*the report >isfor the most  part made up of hearsay.  It discusses three alternative routes,  one of.which, would,,appear to be that  of'paralleling the Coqiiihalla route of  the V. V. &.E. for almost its entire  distance.

A good attendance is  requested as several matters which require the attention of the Association  will be brought up.  Carl Johnson is now the happy possessor of a machine which, while resembling a. miniature pom-pom gun is  really nothing more formidable than a  latest improved, triple-action automatic photographing instrument. On  Saturday he left for Hedley where  he hoped to commence a large and  lucrative business in his new line.  It. S. Elton, wife and family of four  children, from Alberni, Vancouver  Island, arrived in Keremeos Wednesday. They have, taken up temporary  residence in E. Mills house. It is their  intention to spend a month in this  district and if satisfied will make their  permanent abode here.  People of Keremeos are vainly  straining their eyesight for a elimpse  of the. comet which is said to be plainly visible every clear evening at Hedley. The trouble here is that before it  is' dark enough to be able to see the  celestial visitor it has dropped behind  the high hills south west of town.  Those really anxious to obtain a  glimpse of it might do so by organizing a party; and'" climbing the hill  north east of to wm  Keremeos is to have a series of high  class concerts at intervals of about a  month apart. Particulars as to dates  and the persorinell of the troupes are  not to hand, but they are companies,  and placed on circuit by the Walker  Theatre Company of Winnipeg, and  are said .to be first-class in every way.  The advance agent was through here  the first of the week arid arranged  with the nuinagers of Richter's hall to  play there. ,     .,  While returning home from Hedley  early Wednesday morning John Him-  mell had ah accident on the road a  short distance west of the town which  resulted in a painful bruising up for  himself, a badlydemolished rig and  injury to one of the horses. John' had  been employed by Messrs Tweddle and  Elmhirst to drive a couple of drummers to Hedley on Tuesday afternoon  and on his return trip when near the  end of his long drive he must have  fallen asleep with the result indicated  above.

AN INTERESTING REPORT  Paople of Keremeos will learn with  regret that H. A. Cook, formerly G.N.  agent here and recently of Princeton,  is suffering from a severe attack of  rheumatism. On Monday he passed  through here, accompanied by his  wife, on his way to Medical Lake  where he will undergo treatment. We  wish him a speedy and complete recovery.  The building occupied by J. A. McAlpine as residence has been purchased by Wm. Camerom who will use the  lumber for building on his lot. The  building used by the commissariat is  being pulled down and will be taken  up to the front to be utilized in building stables for the horses. Messrs  Cousins and Lee, local contractors  have the job of razing the building.  John Knudson and Ezra Mills are  making a marked difference in the  appearance, of the north end of our  town. They have purchased from  Chas. Becker the row of lots along the  hill and are clearing the same of brush  and otherwise improving with a view  to disposing of them at an advanced  figure. Incidentally they are stacking  up ix nice little pile of firewood.  .. Continued fron Page One.  Also, that if any holder af a license  provided for in sub-section (2) of said  section 57, desires to take advantage  of the. privilege of renewal provided  for in this amendment, he shall, within six months after the passing of this  amendment, surrender the license held  by him and the privileges now appertaining thereto.  Your commissioners are carefully investigating the constitution of forestry departments in other governments  and countries with the object of recommending the establishing of such a department in British Columbia, and,  pending the securing of _the. fullest  data, we are of the opinion that the  government will be weir advised to  provide in the next estimates an increased amount (at least double that  of 1909) for the purpose of supplementing the system of forest fire protection already inaugurated, which, so  far as the limited amounts appropriated in previous years would permit,  has been shown by the evidence to be  most effective in reducing the number  and extent of fires.  We might add in conclusion that in  our opinion a. carefully thought out  policy as to, the best method of dealing with the present unalienated timber lands of the province should be  decided upon before the same are dealt  with, as it is our attention to consider  this question carefully and submit a  recommendation in our final report,  we would respectfully suggest that  the present reserve be in the meantime continued."
