Late Geo. W. Rumberger
News was received this week
ofthe death, of George Wallace
Rumberger, a well known and
highly respected old timer, which
took place at Regina, ou Friday,
July 18th, at the age of 62.
The late Mr. Rumberger was
one of the early residents of
Phoenix, arriving" there about 33
years ago, some years before the
city of Phoenix was on the map.
At that time the mining section
in that vicinity was known as
Greenwood camp. He was a successful prospector and owned a
large number of claims in Greenwood, Wellington,' Skylark and
Summit camps. After the Granby
and Dominion Copper Co. acquired property in Phoenix and
commenced operations on a large
scale the deceased had a townsite
laid out on one of his claims,
which was incorporated about 1900
as the City of Phoenix, of which
he was Mayor for several years.
He aud James Marshall built the
Brooklyn hotel which was. managed by, Mr. Marshall and was
one of best hotels in the West.
He was also interested with
Morrin & Thompson in commercial enterprises. Some_years
ago he moved to Regina, Sask.,
where he was interested in a
brewery and lands. In company
with J. E. Thompson and others
he had shares in the Restmore
Manufacturing Co. and other enterprises in Vancouver.. For the
past two or three years he made
his home with James Marshall,
his former partner, and lived on
Hamilton Street in Vancouver.
For some time he had been
afflicted with heart trouble and
was under the care of specialists
including Mayo Bros., of
Rochester, Minn.
He was a native of Pennsylvania but long since naturalized
iu Canada. He was married many
years ago to whom one daughter
was born. He had three brothers
one residing iu Bellingham,
Wash., and two in the east.
In .the .".passing" of '"Mr.
Rumberger the West has lost a
man of genial nature, fine business ability and unimpeachable
integrity.' "". . .   ,.'[ .-,

What Of Canada's Future?
Oil*? ilay riently th..' wriier ol tin's weekly article road two divergent
views 01' <'.nr...!.i's progress (luring ilie past row years: One was pessimistic;
thc oiiicr (|i.li.- optimist ie. Yet there was much of Iruth in bolh, altogether
net'lier will-n- appeared in take Inlo consideration Iho effects of tlio Croat
War on iI.o progress and development <it' Lhe Dominion.
Tlio iie_.simi.sr_i' note was sounded by Misa Agnes Laul. well-known writer
and ici-tuier. She Is-not af all pleased with Canadian progress, believes thai
sO(-i<i:i:;li in is ril'e, ami ihat Canadians are not living up to l.heir possibilities.
i>.-.,nn;; iliai she is frankly very depressed about Canadian conditions, Miss
Lam .-lai.-s iliai what Ihis country needs just, now is a ringing message of
optimism. !'oiii)iloil on moi.' and that she cannot give "till Canada's menial outlook changes toward the world."
' I used to think." continues Miss I.aut, "it was economic pressure pre-
ven;.\l Canada measuring up to her tuiequalled inheritance of great natural
w-itl'h. .Now 1 know it lsn"t. It. is your lack of dedication lo thc ideal in
vl.i'.-.i your nation was couceived and born���'He shall hold dominion from sea
to sea." Instead of ilia I. t see. Canadian sectionalism growing." And then
Mis-- Lain dwells on the exodus of Canadians to the United Slates, and the
faei of a population of only nine mllions whereas, she says, Canada ought to be
u ���i.._i km of 10 lo GO millions, humming with prosperity that could be beard
around  ihe world.
The opposing, and more optimistic view is presented ia articles appearing hi Toronto Saturday Night, which recalls the prediction of' the late Sir
���\VHIikl Laurier that the Twentieth Century would be Canada's Century. Sir
Wil'i-id made this prediction iu tlie days when Canada was emerging i'rom a
long period of hailing growth into an era of amazing.progress���an era, 1S9S
to liilu. which even Miss Laul say.-, was Canada's one era of "humming prosperity."
Almost one-quarter of Unit century has passed, and what does the record
di<i lose'.' Toronto Saturday Night finds in the progress of Canada during the
last twenty-five years a conclusive answer that, thus far the Dominion has lived U!' io its title of being "Tho .Country of the Twentieth Century." it notes
thai. Canada has become in fact, as well as in promise, the controlling factor
lu ilie world's wheal trade���one of ihe giants of_ international commerce: it
draws intention to Canada's astonishing advance in the production of pulp
and paper: il. refers to the extension of Canada's manufacturing activities in
countless directions until today the Dominion'is ranked high among the indus-
'trb.l nations of-the world; it cites tlie tremendous expansion in trade and
commerce to a figure whicli few business men would have imagined or dared
to prophesy twenty or even fifteen years ago.

and hunters a little time ago that the
bison still existed in certain districts

mistake about the kind of animals
they liad seen, and that these were
not the true bison Finally, the Government sent an expert naluralfsfc to
visit the region, and he has returned
with" tlie news that a herd of wild
bison, Ihe real genuine animal, as big
and strong as tlie bison of the early
days, is living in the country between
the Peace River, the Slave, and the
Caribou Mountains. There are 2,000
of Ihcm, and thMr numbers are growing.

ly iliaf of exalt?tion. Baptism and
tempi ation were parts ot one expeii-
ence. In the one Jesus received His
call to consecration; in thc other He
considered Ihe nature of the call, the
way it must be accomplished, and
the goal to which it would ultimately j _.0TUe
load Him. Tlie same Spirit which j "
had led Hin irom Nazareth to the I
Jordan led Him into ihc wilderness to
meditate in solitude upon the responsibility laid upon Ilim as the Son of
God. Tliere wero no witnesses to
his experience, and thc account must
have been given by Jesus Ilimseli. We
do nofthink of the devil as appearing
lo Jesus in bodily form, although he
has been so often thus depicted by
pools and artists that men's imaginations have heen Influenced thereby.
On the other hand. I)r Ueorge Adam
Smith wisely counsels uV that we
must not allow such nccdlul reminders to weak-m our appreciation .of the
power which Jesus encountered ln
His loneliness. "To Jesus evil was
a force outside cf man. though it had
its'allies within. It was a power
which hungered for the souls of men
and could finally have them lor its
own with the same absolutenes.s as Ife,
the Son "of God and Savior of ihe
world, longed lo make them \EIis."
Wc may think of .Jesus as telling His
experience in the wilderness 10 His
disciples in order to warn them against
similar temptations, or perhaps to
justlly a course of action which they
opposed. I)Y. A. E. Carrie ' makes
the interesting suggestion that no fitter time for this disclosure can be
thought of than just after his disciples*
confession, of his Messiashap and
Peter's rebuke at ills announcement of
���his coming rassion (Mk. S.S2). "Ills
rebuke of Peter surely required explanation and justification. Peter
must bc made to understand that ho
was playing thc part of the tempter.
Uow could Jesus more Impressively
show that Peters thoughts and plans.
In which the other discipies shared,
savored not of God but of men. than
by a confession of his own experience?
He himself had been tempted to take
tho coarse which w?s being'preferred
by His disciples to tho path of divine
appointment, on which he had just expressed his resolve to enter, and had
rejected the course which, they proposed as a submission to. the solicitation of Satan himself."

Victoria, July 23rd.���A most
gratifying report of the timber industry is that just released by
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
lauds. It shows that scaling .returns for 1923 show a total of
2,521,735,000 feet, of which 2.237,-
000,000 feet was iu tho form of
saw-logs. This is an increase of
25 per cent, over the record year
��f 1920, and credit is given the
forest branch for tlio tflicient administration which has resulted in
such encouraging development.
Douglas fir is first, with 1,150,
000,000 feet, cedar second with
575,000,000 feet and hemlock third
with 340,000,000 feet. The income returned to the timber industries amounted to ��86,674,000,
an increase of 45 per cent, over
the previous year.
The water-borne trade rose to
521,707,000 feet, an increase of 91
per cent, over 1922, and more than
ten times the material shipped in
1917. There were 3,000 logging
operations carried on and 352 sawmills engaged in cutting lumber.
Hon. Mr. Pattullo shows that
th<3 revenue received directly from
timber amounted to $3,482,365.
