The event of the week has heen the  consolidation of the two oldest and  lending stores of the town into a now  corporalion to ho known as the Heelley Trading Company .Limited. The  two stores entering the newecorpora-  tion are those, of J. A. Schubert and  F. H. French the latter heing formerly known ns Shatfords Limited.  The first mercantile venture in Heel-  lny wns W. B; Hind of Fair-view and  George Kirhy of Keremeos who eipe.-n-  ed out in a small way in 1901 hut as  huth of them had business elsewheie  and e:ouhl nob spare either- time or  capital for the new Hedley venture,  the enterprise was soon disposed of to  J. A. Schubert of Penticton who erected a new building on the site em  Haynes St. between Scott Avenue and  the bridge which has ever- since be-cn  known as Schubert's store although  greatly added to since then. In the  spiing of 1903 the ne-xt store was  started hy W. T. Shatford & Co. who  had stores in Vernon, Fairview, Camp  McKinney and Slocan although they  were then about closing out the business in Camp McKinney. These two  have done the leading business in the  town ever since then and have carried  large.and complete stocks.  During   the past  fortnight  or more?  the stocktaking and-accountant weak  by outsiders at Schubert's store demited a change of some kind,   but it was  not until Friday morning   that   the  amalgamation    was   announced    and  French's  store  was  closed for   stocktaking  while  part  of French's  store  help went down to   the Schubert store  to   attend   to    the    additional    trade  thrown   there by  the temporary closing of  the  Scott Ave.   establishment.  The intention we  understand is to use  ���������the big Shatford" building in which to  do. the  business of the consolidation  arid the Schubert premises will be used  as a warehouse from   which   the delivery wagon can  transfer the goods  as room is made for  them in  the big  store, which  will be uted to its fullest  capacity both upstairs and down anel  the establishment of the consolidation  will  be to all intents anel purposes a  large departmental store.    ���������',...  There is ho doubt that  the change  from a business point of view is a wise-  one for there is no reason to anticipate  that the turnover of business will be a  dollar less than the"combined turnover  of the two stores has always been, and  there is a strong probability  that it  may increase with the.more complete  stock under one roof and management  and with the better attention of salesmen- of which  a sufficient staff to "attend to the vyants of the buying public   will  be  at all  times  maintained.  The lessening of expense  will in itself  supply a- margin of profit for the consolidation  which  was  wasted  before,  and this feature in itself should be reassuring to the public  who may have  feared an advance in prices. Biit there  is a better guarantee than this against  the possibility   of advance  in  prices  and  that   is  that  the  leading stockholders of the consolidation will still  be the men themselves with whom the  public have  been dealing, and there is  no reason  to infer that the mere fact  of consolidation  will  make  any real  change in their natures to lead them  to  extort higher  prices to add to the  profits  which'they can make by a reduction  in   the expense.    Those  who  have  been giving their trade  to Air.  Schubert will still be dealing with Mr.  Schubert and those  who have  in the  past   been   ready   to   swear   by   Mr.  P'rench can keep on swearing.  Of course we know the consolidation  is corning in for a certain amount of  adverse criticism, but that is fashionable nowadays and where is the consolidation, amalgamation, merger, or  whatever else term the public may see  fit to damn it by, that does not come  in for it? Trusts and high prices is of  course the cry on the part of, those  who enjoy reasoning along that line,  but in this case we think there1 will be  very little cruise for apprehension. So  far as we can see, the worst and only  one to be hit by it will be the printer  to whom it will mean only one ad. instead of two, and we hope the public  will tumble to the situation and in-  crease their support to the printer to  duly make it up, for the one who is  self-sacrificing enough to overlook his  own loss in the general good surely  deserves some consideration.  A MODEST INTRODUCTION  First  Press Reference to the Connection  of L. W. Shatford, M.P.P., with  the District He now Represents.  For one who fills so large- a place in  the financial and public life of the district anel whose connection with business and finance is provincial rather  than of the district, the following  paragraph which appeared, in last  week's Vernon Nenvs among the items  of twenty years ago, will have a special interest for the many friends of  the representative of the Similkameen  riding.    The item reads:  "Mr. W.T. Shatford's new store  in Fairview is now being construc-  ��������� ted and will be ready for opening  before June 1st. His" brother from  the east, who is corning to manage it, is on his way out."  This item was doubtless penned by  the editor of the Gazette who- was at  that time responsible for the editorial  anel reportorial work of the Vernon  News and it shows how little was  known of the present representative  of the Similkanieen by the press of the  district when even his name was not  given. That was twenty years ago  and almost ten of the twenty were  gone before he came into any marked  dugree-of prominence, even in the" district, but when he came into the public eye and had to stand on his own  merit and ability, there arc few nie-n in  the pi evince who have accomplished  as much in tho same short time.  GRAND MASTER'S VISIT  MEMBER TOURS DISTRICT  FIRE PROTECTION CAMPAIGN  District  Fire Warden    Organizing.  His  Forces for the Season.  M.  V.   Allen of  Vernon,  chief fire  warden  for this district,   was irr Hedley on Friday last on a   tour through  the district  where he is perfecting organization    for-    effective    safeguard  against loss by bush fires.    In this important    undertaking   the .provincial  forestry branch  should  have  the assistance of the  entire public.    Everyone    recognizes    the   desirability   of  strictest precautions against the spread  of fires and everyone deplores the destruction    of   property   in   this I way  whether  it belong, to  private individuals or  is part of the  public domain,'  but no one cares  to 'move .when-they  see a fire star-tingoif on some hillside.  It   is therefore" desirable  that the organization should be so  complete that  when  the first evidence-of-fire is observed   the   one ...who   sees it should  know just exactly  who to notify and  how.     This is the season "when no one  can legally kindle a fire  which is capable of - spreading* without a permit,  but neverthelessi'ther-e is- brush  and  slash lying about here and there which  should  be  burnt"'up  to   prevent   the  spread of fire arid it would be well to  have  the fire wardens advised of all  cases  where this exists  in order that  the  menace  to public  safety   be   removed.     Closely adjoining  the town  on the Indian reserve there is a lot of  brush  lying which  was left there  by  the Indians a few   weeks  ago  in the  building of their, fence,   and the government themselves   are   responsible  for a lot of brush   being  left on   the  hillside  near by  when   they cut  the  logs which  were used for cribbing the  creek.     It  would  be  well   if oiiieone  were given  instructions  to have this  burnt off under proper- supervision to  see that the fire is  kept under control.  The  practice   of drawing   in   evergreens to decorate for holidays should  be abolished unless some arrangement  is made to see that the stuff is gathered up afterwards and destroyed.    The  brush  left lying about on  vacant lots  is   very  dangerous   and   it certainly  looks bad in the town.  The April egg-laying record of a  pen of eleven S. C. White Leghorns in  Hedley was 266 eggs in the 30 days or  only 4 eggs shy of being nine eggs per  day. Up to the night of the 27th it  stood 243 or exactly the nine per day,  but the two snowy mornings on the  28th arrd 29th cut it clown to seven on  each, of these days while the last day  was nine again. On several days during the month there were the full  eleven two clays in succession. This  compares very favorably with the  average of the first dozen in the provincial egg-laying contest and beats  the majority of the pens competing.  For the second time Hedle-y Lodge  of Aiicie-nt Free- anel Accepted Masons  has had the privilege and the honor of  greeting in their lodge room the head  of the craft in this province. Last  year for the first time the then Grand  Master, F...I. Bui-de, accompanied by  Past Grand Muster. H. N. Rich, and  the present Grand Master, Jeihn M.  Rudd paid the lodge a visit. V W.  Bro. Rudd promised the Iodide at that  time that during his term'of office he  would be hack Lo visit them.  Both these Giand Masters have set  an example for zeal and thoroughness'  in the interests of the craft for they  have visited practically every lodge in  the province during their terms of  office The only lodge that has been  missed by -the present incumbent,  Grand Master J. M. Rudd, is Cariboo  ho. 4 at Barker ville which he had visited on a'former occasion, and when it  is known that in visiting the three  most northerly-lodges ,-it Atliti. White-  horse and Dawson this occupied a  month of. his time for these three  alone, some idea, of the immensity of  the task in covering all LI40 lodges of  the province dining the term of office,  may be obtained.  Tho Grand Master arrived in Hedley  on Friday and 011 this occasion was  unaccompanied by any others of the  principal officers of the Grand Lodge,  but he had made arrangements with  his District-Deputy, R.AV. Bro. Hamilton Lang of Vernon, who sirrived  later in the day in his auto to he pie-  sent. There were besides a number of  visiting brcthern from Ke-rcmeos and  Princeton in addition to members of.  Hedley lodge resident in these places.  From Keremeos there were Rev. A.  H. Cameron and G. W. Cooper, members; and A.E. Hargreaves, B. Tickell  and Don. McCalhun, visiting brethern:  from Prince'on, Rev. T. A. Osborne  anel W. D. Gordon, members and Jas.  Holden, visiting; from Greenwood, J.  Simpson and from Orion Lodge, Penticton, J. T. Armstrong visiting.  The  V. W.  Grand  Master and his  deputy spent the early   part.of the  evening going over . the books and records of the lodge which showed them  the healthy prosperous  condition  of  the   craft in   Hedley, and   after   the  Lodge was opened, they were received  in  due  and  ancient   form   and  were  given an  opportunity to see. the lodge  at work.   At the, close of work \vithin_  the  tyled door, addresses  were given  by  V. W. Bro. Rudd and R. W. Bro.  Lang containing interesting and helpful criticisru and counsel and after the  lodge  was  closed the   fourth   degree  came on  in   the   lodge   room   in the  shape  of a  banquet presided over by  the Master of the Lodge, VV.'Bro. S.E."  Hamilton,  and attended  by some excellent speeches when the distinguished brethern were further heard from.  The Grand Master responded  to the  toast of the  Grand Lodge  of British  Columbia and gave an interesting substantial  address  which   conveyed   to  his    hearers   data   that   showed    the  steady progress, that had  been made  from -earliest times and the influence  for   good   which   had   been   exerted.  Bro.   Lang   responded   to   the   toast  "Sister Jurisdictions" and gave a most  interesting,  'eloquent   and   carefully  thought  out address terminating in a  little gem of craft poesy  adapted  to  local  physical  features of geography  and  local leidge.  nomenclature but redolent of  tho  spice  of the  "Arabian  Nights" or  "Lalla Rookh" and with a  truly Kiplingesque  swing and verve.  Other toasts  were   "Pioneers  in Masonry",   "visiting  brcthern"  and   the  "officers    and    Members    of   Hedley  Lodge" winch brought short speeches  from other brethern  present?.  Altogether a most enjoyable evening was spentand Grand Master Rudd  bears with him the warm regard of  Masons in the Similkanieen.  On  Tliur.-day last L.W.   Shatford.  M. P. P.   accompanied 11. A.   Turner,  road  supervisor, to Hedley and from  here they   went on up the  river as far  as Coalmont.     The rands  in the western part of the district were examined  and the suggested   improvements considered. The renewed activity in some  of the   mining camps above Princeton  will call for some improvement to give-  across   anil aid   in the  development of  the resources  of the district and  most  of the farmers'   roads leading to farming  settlements   will   require   repairs.  .During  their stay  up  the  river they  inspected   the plant of the  British Columbia  Portlauel   Cement Co.  at East  Princeton, arid   were  very   much  impressed  with the excellent up-to-date  plant  which'has   he-en installed and is  awaiting  one 01 two- things to enable  manufacturing    of    ci-me-iit to   begin  about the end of the month.  They reached Heelley on Sunday and  after a short stay went south again  anel will take in the eastern portion  of the lidirig. Mr. Shatford's frmily  have bi-en residing in Penticton for  senile time and that will continue.to  he their headquarters until they start  on their trip to the olel country. Mr.*  Shatford expects to he- hack again in  tin.1 valley in ahout two weeks. By  that time he will have lie-e-n over the  whole of the riding with the. supervisor.

Forestry Branch Compiles Interesting Figures  WERE NOT SINCERE  How Premier Borden Called the Opposition Bluff on Closure Rules  When the closure resolution was introduced in the House of Commons  the Opposition protested that the new  rules  were much  more drastic  than  the rules in force in England. Premier Borden at once.offered to substitute the English rules. Then* the  Liberal protest flattened out. They  would not accept the English rules.   ���������������������������  The timber of the province has been  reserved from alienation since 1907,  but under the new forest act of 1912  timber sales are being made on forest  areas that have been cruised and surveyed for that purpose.  As yet only-a beginning has been  rneiele, but nevertheless the sales already .in hand will yield, in royalty,  upset-price, and rental, about $176,000  to tho Government. The policy is to  increase the annual cut up to the annual growth of the forest which is estimated to be about 6.V billion feet  board measure.  During the year the government  scalers scaled 1,105,393,751 feet board  measure of timber exclusive of that  cut on lands Crown granted prior to  18S7, on which one cent a foot is charged.  The totid forest revenue for the year-  was $2,753,579. Included in this are  the rentals of special licenses, amount-  in all to $1S46,000.  The government expenditure, including the amount that constitutes  the Government's half of the, Forest  Protection fund was $278,647. To this  should be added the half of that fund  contributed by licerrcees and lessees of  of Crown lands and owners of Crown  Grant timber, and railway companies  Continued on Page Two.

British Columbia contains less than  one hundred million acres of forest  land, containing over three hundred  billion feet of timber.  The lumber output of British Columbia is about one and a quarter billion  feet per year.  The annual growth of British Columbia timber is over five times the  present annual cut.  An important part of the poultry  work of the- Live: Stock Branch of the  Dcpai t meiit of Agriculture, during the  past year has been tho organization of  Co-operative Fgg Cii e-les. Ten circles  in all have been organized under the  auspices of the Branch, working in  conjunction with the piovine-ial and  agricultural college, authorities and  the Poultry Producers' Assot-ia-tion of  Canada. The preliminary work in  connection with a number of others  has been done-, and from present itnli-  ciitions it is apparent that this phase  of co-operative work is likely to have  a rapid growth in the near future-.  Being primarily concerned with the  improvement of the Canadian Fgg  Trade the Live Stock Branch has eu-  couraged the formal ion of these circles  bee:ause the movement affords a means  whereby the. epiality of eggs e:an be  improved as they leave the farm, and  the pernicious practice ofho'ldiug eggs  both on the farm and in the counti-y  s'tb're largely eliminated. Co-operative  effort,eif this kind also "affords a medium whereby the eggs in any given  community may ho collected and mar-,  keted frequently and regularly, anil  insures to the customer- a new laid egg  of uniform quality at no-great increase,  in cost.  ' At the. time of -joining the. association the members agree "to stamp each  egg with a given number designated  by the Board bfdiiectors. This is done  so that the eggs of each .'member may  lie identified when -graded, and payment made according to quality.  A manager is appointed by the  Board of Directors whose business, it  is to collect, grade, sell the eggs and  apportion the returns among the members according to the 'quantity and  quality received. In most circles the.  eggs from each farm are co'llected'at  "stated intervals, but in others the  members deliver the eggs to some central point such as a creamery, cheese  factory, store or house, from which  the manager makes the'shipment.  It is well known that at certain seasons of the year there is a'wide difference between the price received for  eggs by the farmer in the country  store and the price paid by the consumer in the city. This difference is  neit nearly so marked in the spring of  the year as it is in the late summer',  fall anel winter. In other words, as  the epiality of ordinary farm eggs become more uncertain tho premium  placed em new laid circle; eggs increases  While during the spring of the year-  prices received by circle members may  not greatly exceed those paid in the  local store, it is a fact that for the  eggs produced in the month of December last year the majority of circles in  the provinces of Ontario and Quebec  received a price of from -15 to 50 cents  ii dozen.  A limited number of circles will no  doubt be able to lake advantage of the  rapidly "growing select trade in the  larger 'Canadian cities, but from the  fact that the wholesale egg dealers in  Ontario anel Quebec have recently  adopted a new system of buying em a  basis of quality, it is likely that the  product of the majority of circles will  find its way to the consumer through  the more recently established channels  of trade.  The Live Stock Branch stands ready  and willing to help on the e-gg circle  movement in every possible way.  Officers of this Branch are now in the  field, and there is available a quantity  of literature, including outlines of constitutions, by-laws, etc., dealing with  the work, copies of which may be obtained upon request from the Live  Stock Commissioner, Ottawa.  !

Of course it was some what  later than this in ISO I when the real  rise began and there is still ,the oil*  chance that when the melting we-utbe-r  in the high mountains begins this  year il may not be as continuously anel  blazingly hot as it was that time, anel  the bulk of the water may get a litl Ie  more time to run olV.

The   Dominion department of Agriculture are warning tlie public against  seed   potatoes   imported from  Britain  because  of tho  disease  potato canker  being  discovered   in some  shipments.

The;  Destructive Insect and Pest Act  provides  feir- punishment  not emly  of  those who will sell such diseased stock  but of  those who will use   the import-  eel potatoes for seed.

Their  seed  may  not  be-,  deseased  but  it  will   be  wise on   their part  to send  specimens  of  their stock   tothe  department  for  examination.
