MOKK  ICTON,  Block  SERIOUS FOREST FIRES  Sweep the Country From Enderby Northward to. Mara���������Timber District >  '   Also Laiid Waste  ORE IN.THE TUNNEL  It is the old story���������a few 'bush-tires  smoulder for days unheeded by anyone unci a fierce wind fans them into a  flame that gets'beyond control. That  is what happened up at Enderby  last week. As a result of it many  small farmers lost all their buildings  and had most of their fences burned  down.  The long list of individual losses  given in the last issue of Walker's  Weekly, and the tales of heroism and  herdships endured are heart-rending.  The whole country from a mile or  two north of Enderby was practically  laid in waste all the way to Mara.  Editor Walker of Enderby, advocates government assistance for,'the  sufferers, and the occasion is certainly  one which justifies such a course, for  what is the few cents difference in  taxes it:would make for the rest of the  province' compared with the plight  which some of these struggling small  farmers who have had everything  swept away in a few hours find themselves.  .'      . AT LOMBY ALSO  The Vernon News tells of a disastrous fire up White Valley, which  raged around Lumby and Blue Springs,  burning out several ranchers.  Tlie government's system of fire-  patrol certainly leaves much to be desired, before there can be any hope of  saving the balance of the timber and  preventing serious loss to individual  property owners.  The   Metropolitan   Tunnel  Ore Body!'.  Encounters  JOE MARTIN GOES DOWN  SAVED FROM THE ROCKS  Assistance Brought to  Disabled Steamer  by Wireless.  NEW YORK, May 3.���������The flashing  of the "C.Q.D." message late Saturday  night prevented the steamer New  Hampshire, bound for Stonington,  Conn., from going on the rocks of  Long Island sound. When the New  | Hampshire's' propeller struck a log  and broke bit" a blade', the vessel became helpless ''and-there was considerable excitement among the 100 passengers. ......  By order of Capt. F. H. Avery, the  wireless 'operator-.sent a '���������C.Q.D,"  message for quick help. The message  was picked "up (it'the Brooklyn navy  yard, and from there the communication was sent to Oak point, off which  theNew Hampshire reported itself as  helpless. From there two transfer  boats of the New Haven railroad were  sent to the steamer's assistance. The  two relief boats quickly picked up the  New Hampshire and towed her into  her pier at New York.  After the first shock of the accident  order, was restored among the passengers, and when the New Hampshire reached it dock they retired to  their staterooms, where they remained until after daylight, when they  were transferred to another steamer  for Stonington.  ,'/The Metropolitan claim of the Kingston gro.up. gives every promise of  proving the star claim of the group.  For a few weeks past the tunnel  was not giving the satisfactory result  that   was   expected of it   because  it  didn't Catch the ore body just when  and where it was expected to.   For  that reason,  Mr.  Pollock put a few  men to work again in the winze where  the ore had  been shown  up in such  good shape  before.     Superintendent  Pollock is a firm  believer in the safe  old mining doctrine that the  surest  way to find out what an ore body will  do is to stay with the ore and he is always'averse ' to doing any more dead-  work   than   is  absolutely   necessary.  When the ore body was not showing  up in the tunnel as soon as he expected, he wanted to find out'i.why it was,  before any more money was spent on  the tunnel; and so the winze on the  ore was continued downwards in the  .direction of the tunnel, when a tongue  of andesite, was found intruding into  the ore body and dividing it, and by a  piece of ill-luck the tu nifel happened  to be steered into this andesite intrusion.   A little drifting from the winze  above  the intrusion  showed  that the  ore was a large body and  the face of  the tunnel was under it with  ore on  either side.  Going back' into the tunnel he was  soon able to feel for the ore, and now  they have it.  That it is -the right stuff too, that  they have in the tunnel is evident  from the- fact that it. pans in good  shape.  ��������� From this tunnel they can now do  good work in any direction and handle  themuck'with ease, while an upraise  to the winze above will give, excellent  ventillation.  Fighting Joe Failed to   Catch  on   With  the Electors of Stratford-on  Avon  DEATH OF A. H. McBRIDE  The result of the polling in the  Stratford-On-Avon bye-election showed that Joe Martin had been defeated  almost two to one by the Unionist  candidate Foster who polled 5374 votes  while Martin got only 2747 and Kin-  caid Smith the former member polled  ed only 478.  The vote as 'a' whole showed that  Stratford-pn-Avon is at outs with the  Asquith government. In his more  recent contest in Canada, Joe Martin  hud to bear the weight of his own sins;  but on this occasion it was for the  sins of the government whose candidate he was that he was made tei suf  fer.  Father of the Premier of British Columbia  Dies in Westminster  VERY   HIGH   COMPLIMENT  Tecumsehs and Reginas Both Assembling  Aggregation of Stars to Play  Westminster  EUCHRED JOHN D.  Montreal    Operators    Said   To   Have  Beaten Standard Oil Magnate At  Game of Finance  No higher compliment could be paid  the Westminster lacrosse winners of  the Minto Cup than the action of the  Reginas of Regina and the Tecumsehs  of Toronto in scouring the whole country for star playersin order to get together a team to play against Westminster for the Minto Cup.  When Westminster won it they  went all the way to Montreal to play  against the holders of the trophy, and  took with them none but their own  players,���������boys who belonged lo the  town. Westminster is going to protest against the unfairness to P. D.  Ross, of Ottawa,' the trustee of the  cup. Whether he will take cognizance of the protest or not, remains to  be, seen. The Reginas who have challenged for the cup are going to play  only two or three of their own men  and : make up the- balance of the  twelve of ringers from Ottawa. Mont-  realand other points. The personell  of the proposed Tecuni'seh line-up is  said to be about as rank.  New Westminster, May 4.���������The unexpected   death of  Mr.   Arthur Hill  McBride, father of the Provincial Premier,   cast a  gloom  over the whole  City of New Westminster to-day.   Although the deceased  gentle-man was  74 years of age,  his health  had been  exceptionally good and he was round  town as usual on Saturday and Sunday.     He   complained   yesterday   of  feeling- unwell,   but   nothing   serious  was surmised,  and therefore  his sudden   passing away at 6 o'clock  this  morning was a great blow,  not only  to his relatives, ''butalso to the whole  of   New    Westminster.      Public   expression  of this grief is shown by the  hoisting of flags at half  mast on  all  the Government  arid.'., city .'buildings  and also ein private residences.  FOOL CROP SCARCE  Van Home Says That is Why Canada  Will Have No Free Trade.  Sir W. H. VanHeiriib on being interviewed in England on the tariff  question said that there were not fools  enough in Caneida to have free trade.  He estimated that the fools in Canada  only totalled up 6.V per cent of the  population and that was teio small to  swing a free trade policy on. Neither  did he think there was any posibility  of reciprocity with the United States.  Joe, Mill-tin on the other hand has  gone over there posing as a free  trader. Van Home did-not explain  whether he had figured Joe in on the  61 per cent or not.  A SIMPLE SOLUTION  Judge Barron Hits the Nail on the Head  ���������Shut off Germany's Nickel.  CANADA'S DAY AT A.

Y. P. Exposition that "foreign  troops" will be permitted to cross the  border line and invade the exposition  grounds upon whichever date Canada  may set for the invasion.  This means that a great big feature  is to be added to the Dominion Day  celebration on July 1st, which is ������ilso  Dominion Day at the Exposition, for  the plan is to bring the Duke of Con-  naught's Cavalry to Seattle and give  Washington its first view of British  troops upon its own  territory.  Canadians resident in Seattle are  planning to make Dominion Day the  second biggest day of the Exposition.  They admit that Seattle Day, June 12,  will be the "very biggest" but .they  promise to give even that event a race  'tor the honors.  Under the rules of the State Department it will be necessary for the visiting government to ask permission for  its troops to go upon United States  soil, but Ambassador. James Bryco has  been atlviseel of this formality and it  is understood he will make the necessary representations.  Chicago, May 4.���������How. John D.  Rockefeller was euchred out of $4,-  100,000 by a group of Montreal financiers is a bit of gossip which floated  around today.  Long ago John D. took on 100,000  shares of Wisconsin Central. stock  .and 5000 of the railway's bonds. He  had his confidential lieutenant, Frederick T. Gates placed on the directory.  A receiver later on took possession of  the property, financial stress was  weathered, and finally the road reached a stage where it was barely breaking even.  Later the controlling element decided to pay 4 per cent dividends'ou  the stock. John D. said he could not  sanction the seemingly reckless plan,  and Gates was told to dispose of the  stock, which he did after the market  had lieen given the stimulus of the 4  per cent dividend information.  Once they had John D.'s certificates  in hand, the previously matured plan  to have the Canadian Pacific absorb  the struggling Wisconsin Central  was put into effect. Wisconsin Central  soared, and the Canadians cleaned up  $4,100,000,in profits on the rise.  THE   COST  OF   CARELESSNESS  Damage Wrought, by   Forest Fires  in  the Crowsnest  COUNTY COURT.  A lengthy docket was expected to  come before Judge Brown for the last-  session of county court held in Hedley  on Thursday last, but none of the  cases were entered in time.  The main cases were Hackney vs.  Rose, action feir rent; Bradshaw vs.  Shelder, damages for breach of contract ; Atherton vs. Wine, damages  connectetl with water-right. These;  cases were all laid over until next  session of court. Meanwhile thei Judge  intimated a possibility that he might  hold court here again in June or July  when these could be disposed eif.  The only business therefore which  came up wasja couple of naturalization  cases wherein Messrs Louis Scher-  bauer and Raymond Rodenback were  granted the rights of citizenship.  In the Crow's Nest valley, in southern Alberta; only thirty-three square  miles of unhurried forest are left out  of a. total of two hundred and twelve  square miles of possible forest area.  All this area, according to the reports  of early explorers and travellers, was  originally covered by a dense forest.  . Mr. H. R. MacMillan.Asst. Inspector  of Dominion Forest Reserves, made a  preliminary investigation of this district in the autumn of 1908, and has  embodied the result of his investigations in an interesting report. In the  following schedule he summarizes the  condition of the tract:  Sod-covered,   denuded  area,  Dead standing timber  Area    covered     with  young growth  On burnt forest  S5sq. nils.  34 sq. mis.  00 sei. mis.  33 sq. nils.  ADVERTISE   IN  THE   GAZETTE!  Total 212  Thus no less than 179 square miles  out of the 212 (over 84 per cent, of the  area) has been cleared by fire at one  time or another.  Eighteen square miles of the area is  above timber lime.  Thejirea first mentioned, viz,, the  "sod-covered, denuded area," presents  one of the most difficult propositions, [necessarily  Before railway construction started,  this area was covered by a heavy fir  fiorest. Now it is "a poor gravelly  prairie, unfit for agriculture, of very  little value for grazing and which is  in no way producing a crop." This is  the result of repeated burnings. The  first fire does not usually have this  effect, but "a seconel or third rarely  fails to kill all the forest reproduction"  (i. e., the young trees) "to destroy the  remaining seed trees, to burn off the  upper layer of soil and lea.ve a desolate  waste."  Of unbui'iied forest only thirty-three  square miles (about sixteen per cent,  of the aren) remain, anel these are  situated in the places that are least  easy tei get at, namely, at high levels  Concluded on Pago Four.  Berlin, Ont, May 3.���������Judge Barron,  of Stratford, who has been making a  series of addresses throughout the  province on naval defence, raised a  novel problem when, speaking before  'the'Canadian club, he urged the prohibition of the export of nickel as a  means of retaining British naval supremacy. Judge Barron, on urging  Canada, to make a beginning in the  building of a navy of its own,  said in  part:   "I see in a  Canadian  navy the  dawn of a new  industry,  or, rather,  the restoration   of   an   old  one.     In  Nova Scotia  the noise of the hammer  will   mingle   with   the   wash  of   the  wave,  and why not?    Canada has all  that goes  to make a battleship.     She ���������  has the woeid,   the iron,   the steel and  the nickel.     To begin with,  she lacks  the brains,   but  these she can buy or  rent until she grows her own.    Every  ton of a battleship demands 700 hours  of   man's   time,    that   is   700   hours  of labor to the ton.   The labor value  of a Dreadnought is 10,000,000 man-  hours ;it least.   That means  that 2000  men find  employment for 5000 hours,  or 5000 men for 2000 hours, ��������� or full  employment  for over two  years for  2000 men.    In the   building of a cruiser about (50 per cent,  of the cost of  the hull goes for labor or about $370,-  000 in   wages,  or in   the  building of a  Dreadnought 50 per cent,  of the hull  goes for  labor,  or about $1,150,000 in  wages.      There is   besides   the labor  value of the machinery.    The building  of  the   hull,   the joining and fittiug  must take place on the ways ;   but the  labor and skill of all else  which goes  to   the  creation  of a big ship  must  be     widely     distributed  throughout the Dominion.  The necessity for a Canadian navy having arisen  it is the highest wisdom   tei have  our  necessities create new industries and  thus use the raw material  which God  has given us so plentifully.  "You gentlemen, are all aware that  the addition of nickle to steel toughens steel. :The application of this  amalgam to ships of war has made a  three-inch nickel steel plate less vulnerable than a coat of the olel nine-  inch armor.

The Standard of Empire and  its publisher A. J. Dawson, have  been doing  a grand work for  ' the Empire and  for  Canada in  particular.      Never before  did  Canada receive the amount of  attention   from the people  of  Great Britain,  which it is now  receiving,  directly through the  agency of the. Standard of Empire,  and  if its publisher is deriving  pecuniary  benefit from  certain Canadian  ads  running  in its columns,  lie, is  only getting what is his just due for the  enterprise    displayed.     As for  the Week's  claim that  any attention   which   the Standard of  Empire has drawn towards this  country has  been   "at the  expense of Canada," the absurdity  of its position should be apparent.      When   people   advertise  they  do   so  for a quid pro quo,  and if the  government  of various provinces in the Dominion  of  Canada  that  have ads running in the Standard do not see  a reasonable iiope for adequate  return   therefrom   they   would  not  insert them.    The  dog  in  the   manger    attitude    of   the  Week in  this   matter is  very  plain, and is  indiscreet as well,  for a scrutiny of its own advertising  columns  in the  issue in  which its attack on Dawson appears,  is apt to prompt various  inconvenient inquiries.   S^'j scare  got up by the Unionists  for political  purposes.    But  it  is   not   little   England   that  is  concerned in  this  matter,  but  the   whole British Empire, the  greater part of  which   doesn't  care  two cents for their  petty  little  domestic   issues in   England. With the broader concern  of   protection    for  the  empire'  thej*   are   concerned,    and   in  Canada   thus  far  it   has  been  kept outside the pale of party  politics.    The man in Britain or  any  of   the   colonies   whether  P'i I'liamentarian   or   journalist  who   will   to-day    cry*   "peace  peace  when  there is no peace"  is an enemy of  the empire, and  the  worst kind of  an  enemy,  for the  internal foe is always  the most dangerous. Now Judge  Barron is not a politician.    He  was  One  time,  being a Liberal-  M. P.    in   Ontario   before    Sir  Wjlfrid  appointed  him to  the  bench.'   His   plan'   to   out   off  Germany's  supply  of nickel is  sound sense  and good business;  Sir   Wilfrid   should   therefore  pay   attention   to* the judge's  suggestion.     The  tariff is one  of the strongest weapons 'which  could   be  used with  which  to  fight Germany,  and.whether.it  is by taxing German imports or  putting  on a stiff export duty  on   Canadian  exports for Germany the end  attained  will be  the same,  but  will  be reached  Sooner if both are employed.  1909  1  S  15  22  29  A Simple Solution  AN EASY SOLUTION  The plan of checking Germany's burst of speed in navy-  building, pointed out by Judge  Barron, of Stratford, Ont.,  should engage the attention of  legislators at Ottawa. Of course  the trouble is tliat so many  hide-bound partizans for rxilit-  ical purposes effect to disbelieve  Continued from Page One  linn to all it has enormously accelerates! speed. This is what nickel has  done, and, sir, the mines at Sudbury  furnish most of the nickel in thear-  nioL- plate of the world's warships of  today. It would be. an easy task for  Canada   to  stop Germany's  race for  supremacy.    Let Canada prohibit the  export eif  nickel.     Let the act of 1897  tie   proclaimed law.    Let  the  nickel-  steel   industries flourish  in  our own  land rather  than  across  the line,  as  they  now do  by means  of our God-  given wealth.     Then  prohibit the export to Germany, either directly or indirectly.    Then,   with a  preference to  Great Britain, Canada would be doing  more for the Motherland  than would  be done  by a gift of a dozen  Dreadnoughts.   ,  Germany would lose  the  amalgam,   unless  the mines of  New  Caledonia came to her rescue, and this  Fiance would scarcely permit,  smarting as  she does under Germany's r e  peated    indignities    which   she    can  never forget and never forgive.     It is  impossible  to    contemplate    the   far-  reaching benefit this would lie to the  motherland,   though I    confess    this  method of defeating a feie does  not  appeal to the  Anglo-Saxon   who  despises   to   fight   on   other   than   even,  terms.     It is  less  to be condemned,  however,    than    is    a   policy   which  permits     our   store   of     wealth    to  be exploited  to benefit industries in a  foreign     land,     and     by     a     large  foreign      corporation      which      has  blanketed over acres  between the Soo  and Sudbury  and is   powerful enough  to destroy the fruits of fresh discovery  and to   throttle any attempt at competition, and  which has consolidated  the mines and smelters  in the United  Staters,   Canada,  Great   Britain,   and  New Oak-dona,  including seven   large  and hitherto independent concerns."  Scientific'American  The house fly; which we have hitherto in' our ignorance, considered as a  .harmless creature, or, at the worst,  simply a nuisancer has been shown, as'  the result of scien tific researches, tei  be in reality, a most dangerous insect.  Dr. L. O. Howard, iii his recent investigation of the economic loss through  insects that carry disease devotes a  chapter to the house fly as a carrier of  typhoid bacteria. The facts brought  out are startling.  At the. outset emphasis is laid upon  tho fact that the term  "typhoid fly"  .is.open to some objection as conveying  the erroneous  idea  that  this fly is responsible for the  spread1 of   typhoid  only.    -As a'matter of fact,   the insect  is dangerous from every peiint of view,  and is liable  to spread the  bacteria of  all the known intestinal-diseases;   The  true connection   of the. so-called house  ���������fly with  typhoid  fever- and the -true  scientific evidence  regarding- its ' role  as a carrier of that disease,   have only  recently' been   worked out.     Celli   in  1S8S fed flies  with pure cultures of the.  typhoid bacillus,  and   inoculations of  animals  were .also   made,    providing  that the bacilli  which  pass  through  flies   are    virulent.    Dr.    George   M.  Koeber,   in his report on   the  prevalence of  typhoid fever in the District  eif Columbia, has  drawn  attention to  the danger  eif'the  contamination'of'  food supplies  that- have been in touch  with   typlioid    patients.    The   prevalence of typhoid fever  in the camps eif  the   United  States  army during-the  Spanish war  brought   about  the  appointment of an Army Typhoid-Commission,   which found: First, that the  flies   swarmed 'around   the   sanitary  quarters'.'of'. the   hospital,   and   then  visited  and fed upon the fond prepar-  e>d-for  the soldiers  in the  mess tents.  Seceindly,    that   officers  whose  mess  tents were protected   by screens  suffered      proportionately      less     from  typhoid than  those  whose tents were  not    so    protected.

Archdeacon Small died in St. Luke's  Hospital, Vancouver of pneumonia  last week.    He was 59 years of age.  The. Grand Trunk Pacific and Canadian Northern are said to have reached an agreernant to build jointly down  the North Thompson.  The Canadian Bisley team will sail  for England on June 19th.  conclusion was that the fly carries the  typhoid bacillus either by the adheijj  ence of infected matter' te> its feet, or  within its own digestive organs.  In 1899 Dr. Howard made a study of  the typhoid or house fly, in its relation  to country and city sewage, -and he  made a further investigation of the  species of insects that are attracted by  feiod supplies in houses. .In this in'  vestigation he found that the typhoid  or house fly constituted 98.8 per cent  of the whole number of insects captured in houses throughout the whole  county, tinder the conditions indicated  above. ' The importance of this insect  as a carrier of the dreaded disease in  army camps, as shown in the Spanish  war and in the Boer war and in the  camps of great armies of laborers en--  gaged in gigantic enterprises,, like the  eligging of the Panama Canal, is obvious. But it is certain that, even under  city conditions, the influence of this  fly in the spread of disease has been  greatly underestimated.  In a report to the Merchants' Association of New York, based upon  numerous observations of the relation  of flies to intestinal diseases, which  was published in December, 1907, it  was shown that the greatest number  of flies occurred in the weeks ending  July 27th and August 3rd ; and that  the: deaths from intestinal diseases  rose above the normal at the same  time at which flies became prevalent;  culminated at the same high point;  and fell off with slight lag at the time  of the gradual falling-off of the prevalence of the insects.  A certain species of mosquito has  been demonstrated to be the cause of  the spread of malaria. Yellow fever  is caused by another kind of mosquito;  anel now we know that the supposedly  harmless house fly is an active agent  in the distribution of intestinal  diseases. In yiew of these facts, Dr.  Howard's contention that this familiar  household insect should henceforth  be known as the "typhoid fly" would  seem to be well made.

The  high dump on the east side of Twenty  Mile is covered with verdure of some  kind or other., v If- real estate men  can't'sell land' in the Similkameen  after this it will be because there is no  money left in the country to buy it  with. Should there be much further,  delay in getting started at track-laying, it may be necessary for them to  run a mower ahead of the track-ltyer;  or if that would be too expensive, they  might require the contractors to sterilize thedumps.

Tim CIIAKGE  The Gazette in answering an abusive  personal attack charged that the  editor of the Penticton Press although  trying in his. public capacity as ,a  publisher to force local-option on the  people of this district refused in his  other public capacity as a magistrate  to take an information against a local  merchant for supplying an intoxicant  to Indians because said merchant was  one of his best customers.  THE  DENIAL  The only denial attempted by the  Press is couched in these words :  ���������'As a matter of fact the editor of  the Press since his appointment to the  position of magistrate has, alo'ng with  Mr. Wade, sat on nearly every case^  tried in Penticton, and has never refused TO TAKE AN EVIDENCE.

THE PROOF  ,The. quibble in this denial shouldin  itself be sufficient proof of the correctness of the charge. The real proof,  however, is here furnished by the man  who asked him to take the information.  Penticton,1 May 10th, 1909.  Being asked -by the editor of the  Hedley-Gazette whether I ever sought'  tei lay an information before W. J.  Clement, magistrate, against a merchant in Penticton for selling an intoxicant to an Indian, and been refused by said magistrate on the ground  that the merchant was his best  customer, I have no objection to state  that the above circumstance iscorrect.  I did go to him to'lay the information  and I am not. in the habit of laying  informations on the  rumor. The reason  was as stated.  John Tooth  Prov.

It is nine years  since the Gazette first met Mr. Tooth,  and on that occasion he gave evidence  against himself on a land case which  he knew meant for him the loss of a',  pre-emption that , is ��������� todiiy. worth;  several thousand dollars.

Hedley, May 10th, 1909  In answer to question of the editor  of the Hedley Gazette as to whether  extra copies of the edition of April  22nd had been sent to Penticton, I can  only say that both my own recollection and the records of the office giving weight eif papers despatched, go  to show that there were no extra  copies of either that issue or any  other within the past three months.

' , It is the timber that  is easy to get at that., the fire here, as  everywhere else, has consumed or  damaged.  The most h6peful aspect . of the  whole case is presented, by the sixty  square  miles of country covered with  ....young growth. The land on which  this young growth is found is "too  high on the hillsides and is too rough,  stony anel gravelly to be fit for agri-  'culture or valuable for grazing." This  young stand eif timber consists largely  of lodgepole pirie, with a-small'proportion of spruce and Douglas fir.  Properly protected, it will in time  come to be of immense value..  The first step  in forestry,   here and  '"��������� everywhere else,   is  to preserve  the  forests that now exist, and so the first  - thing necessary in this region is to  protect the green timber and the  young growth from the fires that have  -been'so.disastrous in the past. This is  the first problem that is engaging the  attention eif the Dominion Forest Ser-  service.  Up to the present fire, protection in  Canadian forests has been: effected  entirely by patrol of the area to be  protected by rangers whose duty it is  to watch for fires and put them out  (and much of the value of such a service lies in the fact that the ranger  can discover and extinguish in its first  1 stages a fire that, left unchecked,  might destroy many thousand dollars'  worth eif timber) and warn travellers  and campers of the clanger of carelessness in the use of fire. This patrol will  no doubt be the basis of the system  finally adopted for this region, supplemented probably by the use of "lookout" and telephones.  .,'e;  When you can get a good lot on the best residential streets  at from $200 to $250 on easy terms of payment.
