(Special Correspondence of The Ledge)
Victoria, June 29.���By using
British Columbia fir instead of red
pine in it new livestock arena, the
Toronto city council and contractors on the building are,saving
$20,500, according to information
reaching the department of lands
here. Lumber officials - consider
this quite a boost for British Columbia lumber and means that the
product of this province is beginning to win its way in the markets
of Eastern Canada in competition
with pine from" the Southern States

of examiners from five to ten.
Will Enforce Liquor Act
Victoria, June 29���No doubt is
left in the minds of the citizens bf
the province over what course of
action will be taken by the government in enforcing the * new liquor
act. Following rumored stories
that certain clubs would be allowed
to sell beer to their members, Premier Oliver and Attorney-General
Farris issued signed statements to
the effect that the strict letter of
the law would have to"be lived up
to; which meant that no one other
than^t government vendor would
be allowed to sell either spirituous
or malt liquor. Those officials
state that that law will be enforced
to the limit.

The transaction will leave the
company without a mine, but with
a surplus of 8250,000 to $300,000
besides the $75,000 in prospect.
This money will not be disbursed,
but will be retained for the purchase and development of another
property if it can be found, according to an official. The company
has^no_ property in view,-but has
been engaged in the examination
of properties for a year or two.
"We sold the mine because we
believed it was worked out," said
an official of the company. The
Standard was believed to have been
worked out on three occasions, but
as often, yielded a new mineral'
prize to its persistent operators.
Its dividends.' yield aggregate $2,-

is raised to $3,000,000 by the surplus.

Britain Wants
Canadian Wool
I* 	
Growers   May  Establish   Permanent
Selling Agency in England.
" Four years ago, Canadian sheep
breeders organized thcir own com-
' pany to handle their wool on a cooperative basis. So far, this company, while selling some wool in Europe, havc confined their efforts largely to thc Canadian and United States
markets.
Thc grading system which has from
year to year been improved upon, and
thc greater attention being given to
thc care of wool by thc growers have
created a standing for Canadian wool
on thc world's markets equal to that
of any other clips.
The result is that thc possible demand for Canadian wool in Great
Britain has made it necessary that
thc Canadian Co-operative Wool
Growers, Limited shall establish a
permanent selling agency on thc
Bradford market, England. Mr. G.
E. O'Brien, general manager of thc
company, Toronto, sailed recently for
England for this purpose.
The company's agency will keep at
all times a full line of Canadian
fleece wools before thc English and
continental buyers. Canadian wools
arc now being prepared in such a
���way by the farmers and put up for
market in such an attractive manner
by thc Co-operative Wool Growers,
Limited, that thcy arc attracting
their full share of recognition on all
the world's markets in direct competition with all other wools.
Mr.  O'Brien on  this trip has with
him a full line of samples and intends
-to   leave   no    stone unturned in dis-
��� playing  thcir  attractiveness  to  Eng-
- lish mill  buyers  besides  establishing
thc selling agency referred to above.
Ducks Are Plentiful
Saskatchewan Game Hunters Will
Have Good Sport This Fall.
The spring hatch this year gives
promise of good sport for thc hunters
this fall, according to Fred Bradshaw,
chief game guardian for Saskatchewan. With all the sloughs in thc
country filled with water there arc
plenty of young ducks, says Bradshaw. He has received reports of
some Canadian geese nesting on Luke
Johnston. This is unusual, this bird
usually selecting waters much further
north. While a wet spring is not
considered favorable for prairie chickens, reports received by Bradshaw indicate that there will bc a . plentiful
supply of sharp-tailed grouse this
year.

Coal Mining In the Arctic
Coal  In  Growing   Quantities   Being
Wrested   From   the   Frozen
Earth.
Since 1900 thc pioneers of thc coal
mining industry of the far north havc
been at work at Spitzbergen, 600
miles within the Arctic circle and only
10 deg. from the Pole. Here, during
the long day- of the Arctic summer
and the three-months winter night,
mines arc being worked and coal in
considerable and growing quantities
is being wrested from the frozen
earth. That coal mining under such
circumstances presents features of
unique interest goes without saying,
while thc circumstances under which
those who work the mines live arc
not altogether without their appeal to
thc imagination.
Both thc human and the technical
aspects of thc mining industry of
Spitzbergen are dealt with somewhat
fully in an interesting paper read before thc Alining Institute in Scotland I
by Mr. II. M. Cadcll, B.Sc, F.R.S.E.,
in which thc author gives details of
his personal observations of thc operation of thc several mines which arc
at present being worked. Spitzbergen has an area of 25,000 square mile^,
or approximately the same as that of
Scotland, but so far mining operations
havc been confined to a relatively restricted area in thc neighborhood of
Ice Fjord, a'-largc inlet on thc west
coast of thc largest island of thc
group, and to a small stretch of" territory to the south of King's Bay, some
60 miles further north.
On thc Ice Fjord the carboniferous
system consists mainly of a thick
scries of limestones overlying kulm,
in which coal seams occur. Thc
limestone strata pass upwards into
thc Permian, above which are rocks
of the Triassic and Jurassic age containing inferior coal seams. . Thc best
Spitzbergen coal, however, is not
found in thc carboniferous formations
at thc head of the inlet, but in the
secondary and tertiary coal-bearing
strata to the south, and it is here,that
active mining operations are at present being carried out. This superiority of coal of more recent formation
over that of greater age is not a little
curious when viewed in the light of
general experience. As thc scams in
thc carboniferous area have not, however, becn worked to any considerable
clttcnt, and as thc only samples so far
tested havc becn taken cither superficially or at no great depth from thc
surface, a possible explanation of this
apparent reversal of thc established
order of things may be inferred. It
is not .impossible that thc quality of
the older coal may improve at greater
depths, and if this should prove to bc
the case the value of the deposits in
this. area, would be . considerable-

In Two Years They Swept Up 1,200
German Mines.
Speaking in Loudon, at thc annual
public meeting held- in connection
with the Roya'l National Mission to
Deep Sea Fishermen, Sir Reginald
Bacon, who presided, alluded to the
magnificent work done by the Dover
Patrol, of which hc was in command,
during thc war. He had over 200
drifters and trawlers under his command, and lhcir services were invaluable. The trawlers and mine-sweepers, he said, swept up, from 1915 to
the end of 1917, over 1,200 German
mines, they swept a total distance
equal to twelve times round the earth,
and 100,000 merchant vessels passed
the Narrows during those years, and
only one twenty-fifth of one per cent,
were lost through the German .mines.
The drifters shot their explosive
nets up the Belgian coast, and during
1916 and 1917 they laid a barrage of
nets along the whole'length'of that
coast off Zceb'rugge'and Ostcnd. Considering,that these men had lived outside thestrict discipline of-a fighting
service, thcir "discipline aud conduct
were".remarkably" good. -.-They were
not angels���they were, the first to ac-_
knowledge that'"themselves���but they
were.men;-and they were seamen.lit-
erally men-of the "sea, with tough bodies and stout hearts, which was""what
'was wanted in war.     ."'     .     ��� .
arranged for thc sending of independent prospectors into districts with
which they arc familiar. In this way
the new company expect to get firsthand information regarding the hidden wealth of thc north country^ The
organizers of the concern arc old-
time prospectors. The prospectors
will not indulge in any "fancy frills"
and will not bc burdened with a
quantity of useless wear. They will
travel alone, with canoes or packs and
are outfitted with just what is necessary to carry them through.
The general idea, insofar as the
present year is concerned, is to explore and obtain data, but development work is expected to commence
next year, if sonic of thc prospects
"pan out" as thcy arc expected to
do.
Children Cay for Fletcher's
A Woman Farmer's Success
With
Started   Nineteen  Years   Ago
. Only Seventeen Dollars.
Mrs. ]\rary j_ Blackburn, who has
just purchased 160 acres of land close
to Hardisty, Alberta, says "Western
Canada can't bc beat."_..
Shc has been farming in this locality for the past nineteen years, leaving Eastern Canada and taking up a
homestead in 1902. She started with
$17 in cash and a few head of livestock; two heifers, a pure-bred bull
and sonic calves. She lived in a tent
thc first suminer-^.and rented a sod
shack for the winter. Ten years later she had increased her herd to 59
head of Holstcin dairy cattle and had
raised as high as 110 bushels of oats
to the acre, while up-to-date buildings had taken the place of the sod
shack, the house and barn each costing more than $1,600. These are
complete with cement basement, milk
house and .cellars.
Continuing her story, shc says, "I
have been all alone since 1909 and
havc milked my cows, raised my
calves, cut hay and. stacked it, by
myself. If a woman can start up
here on the bare prairie as I did, with
n6thing and make good, what might I
have done with a little money. -I just
wish you would drop in and sec what
I havc done by myself. What might
a man who tries not do with a few
hundred dollars."

Conference Of Premiers,
Favor Close Relations
With United States
/
London.���In a speech at a sitting
of thc Conference of Premiers,, the
proceedings of which wcrc confidential, Premier Meighen is understood
to have strongly stressed thc view
that only with the fullest autonomy
for all the component-parts of the
Empire can the whole survive and
prosper, and to havc again emphasized thc desirability of close relationship with the United States.'1 He is
also understood to havc bee'rr warmly
supported ' by Premier Smuts/ of
South Africa, and also, Ui some extent, by cithers in the conference. Indeed, one of the outstanding features
of the conference is its untinimity in
thc-bclicf that friendship with the
United Slates must remain a cardinal
principle of British foreign policy.
The sessions' of the first week of
the "conference have made it clear
that whatever British statesmen may
liavC thought or said in clays gone
by, there is not now lhc slightest indication "of,.any desire on their part
to minimize or interfere with progress of dominion autonomy. "Tlie
round table group which flourished a
fc-w years ago, and whose* designs
were so suspected it)- the i dominions,
is no longer^ a factor in British political thinking.
Its leaders, mostly brilliant young
Englishmen-"of high ideals, <,and abstract theories, havc cither repented thcir views or lost thc car of thc
country, anfl it is extremely doubtful
whether thcy command thc slightest
,support even of the most imperialistic sections of the press "and Parlia-
ent. Thcir place has been taken by
a more influential and practical set
of thinkers devoted lo the study of
imperial questions and basing their
actions upon * the ^firm belief that
only with the fullest autonomy for
all thc component parts of thc Empire can the Emmrc as a whole survive and proper.     _ .

in which the Albanians reiterate their
grievances against Greece and Jugo
SlaVia and ask for a public hearing
,on them. Efforts arc being.made by
thc-^jreck and Jugo Slav representatives to take thc_casc out of the

and concludes: '/'Whatever' thc nature

have no homes now to go to, and
where they must start life again under worse conditions than ever, having wasted thcir^ savings in a useless

Thc abbe suggested that some way

Active Immigration  *
Work Is Delayed
Settlers WiU Not Be Brought In By
Western . Canada Colonization Association'Until The Provinces Pass
The Desired.Land Listing Legislation. Preparatory Work Will
Continue.
At a conference between the Eastern and Western Directors of: the
Western Canada Colonization Association it jvas decided that the successful functioning of the Association
depends upon the working out of a
joint land ', settlement plan under
which the efforts of the Federal and
Provincial Governments will be effectively co-ordinatc3. Nothing short
of such a" plan will afford this Association a real basis upon which to
carry out the vital' national ^undertaking for which it was created. It is
felt that the organization would be
unwise to expend: a large amount of
-monC3r-in securing high^class settlers
only to- find the lands increased in
price on their arrival. It is realized
that all promises and statements ma'de
to intending settlers must be fully
carried out.      	
LTiUil these suggestions arc given j
effect so that there will be a reasonable assurance _ of results in actual
land settlement, the directors do not
feci justified in wi-thorizing' the expenditure of privately subscribed
money which would necessarily bc involved in a first year's -programme.
The obligations of the Association to
voluntary "financial supporters of this
movement are such that it must not
spend funds generously donated until
the pathway of effective colonization
is reasonably clear.
In thc interval which must elapse
before the proposals can be put into
effect thc Association will continue fo
press for the co-ordination and legislation necessary, and endea*Vor to
complete thc full subscription list of
$1,500.00. Thc directors" hope that
thc Federal Government will be represented at a proposcd''confercncc of
Western- Premiers and -that as a result a uniform plant will bc put into
operation which will solve thc unoccupied land problagjfc and enable thc
Association to get to work.
���Before- leaving- for���Vancouver the
Managing Director, Major-General A.
D. McRae, C.B-, made a .brief statement to lhc press, in thc course of
which he said:���
''I agree with the decision unanimously ^reached by thc Eastern and
Western Directors after thc most serious consideration of all the circumstances. I am very proud of the
splendid support which I have received from the members of" thc Board,
particularly in regard'to my land listing plan". In thcir view, as in mine,
thc legislation asked from the three
Prairie Fro\inccs is absolutely necessity to success. This oi similar
legislation must he put into effect before thc unoccupied land problem is
solved.      The participation    of    thc

American Inquiry

Interests.
Washington.���The special commission of House and Senate, headed by
Representative Sydney Anderson,- of

emergency and permanent agricultural legislation, will include in its task
a study of Canadian agricultural condition? and legislation./ The commission will probably not visit Canada,
but will assemble such data as can be
obtained through the Department of
Commerce. All foreign markets' for
agricultural produce will be explored
and thus thc findings will bc of value
to Canadian as well as United States
agricultural interests. 6

The furs wcrc untouched, being
wrapped up "in- canvas, but half bfa
beautiful cow buffalo robe and half a{
rabbit skin robe were eaten.-' Never
mind, I was too pleased to sec thc
dogs again, so rewarded the boy
handsomely and i-eturnccT"to Fairford
in great style next day, tlie dogs��in as
good a humor as myself; and then I
promised never again would -\ve admit
a stranger to our ranks.
When Chief Factor Archie McDonald ordered mc to lake charge of the
Fairford Post, his instructions were
to complete the new master's house as
soon as possible. Then I was to remove everything of value in thc old
fort and burn the buildings, which
hud been up for many years. I was
rather curious to know the why and
wherefore as to'burning the place, so
asked him his reason. "Oh," was his
reply, "there arc some fool stories
current at Fairford as to them being
haunted, for some bloody rows' took
placcltherc in thc old drinking days."
Well, I reached Fairford all 'right
and took possession of the place. I
put,,au extra man or two on the. new
building and after settling down began making a few cautious inquiries
as to what shape (if any) the spooks
were supposed to take. Very little
satisfaction was given mc, but I noted
tlia't -Indians and thc usual hangers on
did not like to be near or in the post
after dark.
This establishment was built in'the
usual way in Lhc form of a quadrangle
and surrounded with a wall of hewed
limber,-at'one end of the square the
master's house and on each side various store houses, while the front was
shut with the wall and large gates.
The native men's houses stood at
some distance away outside the enclosure. I and my cook, a Lewis
man named Malcolm, were the only
occupants of the fort at night; not
though the only, ones, as I always had
my four famous dogs, Herod, Nero,
Moro and Hero, who, if anyone touched mc, would have had a bad time of
it, as they were exceedingly fierce if
set on to any person or animal. I
forgot to mention that a platform of
heavy sawn planks ran all round thc
square and most of these were'--old
and rotten'so one had to :bc careful
in stepping for thcy would tip up and
conic down with a bang.
One evening, when the place was all
quiet, Malcolm came in from thc kitchen and 1 saw by his embarrassed
manner that there was something on
his mind. ""Well, sir, master," and
that was as far as he could get. However, I encouraged him, and bit by bit
thc truth came out. He wanted to
go and sleep in the men's houses, and
ou asking his reasons, he said he kept
hearing noises at night and also fell
things moving, though hc could sec
nothing. He hated to go and leave
mc alone, but hc could not sleep the
things were going on.     I finally
told him he could go, and after his departure made a careful inspection oi
the whole premises and saw that all
gates were closed and barred. Then,
calling my dogs into the hall, I overhauled an old shot gun and loaded
it heavily with powder and plenty of
wadding, as I thought some attempt
might be. made through the night to
scare mc off the premises.
My room was at the front of the
house, the window overlooking the
square. Tin's I left partly raised but
pulled down the blind. Then, placing thc gun handy, I blewout7thc
candle and went to bed, the time being near midnight. Just as I was
falling asleep I heard a heavy trampling noise coining round thc squareon
thc platforms,, and I was out of bed
like'a flash, cocked my gun, and waited developments. Thc heavy tramping came right on past my window
but there was nothing visible, though
the night was light"enough to see the
olhcr buildings plainly. It may have,
been imagination, but as the noise
passed the window I thought I '.could
detect a draught of cold air. Well it
is no use disguising thc fact that I -
felt creepy, but just then I thought
of my dogs. The noise in the meantime had stopped, so I waited quietly
for a repetition, and lhis~camc in a
few minutes. The same heavy tramping started apparently close to the
main fort entrance, then along..past
the Pemican store.then turning an J
coming right in front of my window.
With that I threw1 the front door op^n
and set thc dogs o'n it. Out they
went with furious growls, and back
thcy came again, hair bristling 7 up,
and evidently cowed, as ihey retreated
into the corner and would make no
response when I urged them out
again. Again, as I had followed
them out, I could, see nothing, but
this time distinctly felt a cokl
draught air pass. The dogs cither
felt or saw something that scared
them, and it may be the brute crcatio-i
is more sensitive to non-visible aura's
or whatever name it ov they might Irj
called than the human kujd, or brs
civilization* dulled our '������ perceptive
faculties.
It was several weeks before the
new- residence was ready, for .occupancy, and oduring this time I constantly heard the same heavy tramp-
lings and other noises, and there was
no doubt the dogs were affected, as
generally they were joyous creatines
always ready to sport -or jsjay with
flic. However, as.no ill-effects occurred, I became used to the racket
and yet was glad enough after vacating the premises to put a torch to the
old fort.
During the same winter a mysterious light accompanied me for some
hours on Lake Manitoba, which by i*s
presence, affected my fearless dogs in
the same way, but this I have described fully in a former article, entitled
Indian Witchcr.-.ft.
about April 20 last, bound for Fort
Norman via Vermilion and thc upper
