For this crime the  ^punishment is very severe and' the/Dominion Immigration authorities have   been   criticised for  their long suffering attitude.   The Mayor char?  facterized it as a "Farce."   He said:   "I would  lave given just three minute* and then3^��������� M !"  le does not say what he would have done, but  ljudging from the faithfulness with which  the  lAtay&r has been attending to his civic duties (in  [Seattle) during this .crisis we presume he would  lave said, "Shoo,*,' and the Hindus would have at  Konce "salaamed the sahib Baxter."  Has' the Mayor not overlooked one or two.  important faetsf/^First^ that these Hindus* were  ider civic control in-so-far as "order" was cpn-  jeerned, and the immigration authorities could  |iiot legally impose-order?     Second; that, there  'rests in the office of the.Chief of Police a letter,  from the Captain asking for protection (which it  [was"the duty of the local civie authorities to give)  uf for cqjptroi of his vessel to be restored.

Tour attaek is also ail attack upon yonr own police, which ia utterly "uncalled! for. If auy Qity  ias a right to be proud of its police-force it is���������  Tgneouver.   ' '  Now, what are the real facts of/this case?  1. On March 31 last the Dominion Government extended for six months an Qrder-in-Coun-  Jil prohibiting all classes of labor from entering  British Columbia.  2. On April 4^ Gurdit Singh sailed froni Hong  Cong with his fellow- countrymen for Vancouver,  bia Shanghai and Japan. He knew of theJaws  ind also the Order-in-Council above referred to,  ind to protect himself he collected a return fare  from all his passengers, as is usual by all transportation companies in cases of a doubtful irami-  rant.

They arrived in Vancouver about nine  [weeks ago, and were refused admission by the  [immigration authorities because (a) They .were  [likely to, become a public charge; (170 having no  [money at 111 and the balance very little), (b)  n'hey hadThbt $200.00 as prescribed by law.   (e)'  [���������hey had not come direct from the land of their -  .rigin. - (d> They were (88 of them) inflicted  with loathsome diseases,    (e) They came contrary to the above Order-in-Council.  4.

V  11. The Chief, of Police could only spare his  men at certain hours, and decided that Saturday  night  (midnight) was the best time to restore  order en board the mutinous ship.    Those on  board were duly warned and given every opportunity to /submit, but refused.   The police then  Went alongside, but were met with a fusilade of  ��������� bricks, coal,.scrap /iron, etc., and found they were  -helpless unless they shot down the mutineers (a  ��������� la mode Sahib Baxter)   they wisely withdrew,  having thirty   men   injured.    We say "Wisely  V% withdrew,^,' because it would have been impossible to have explained to sceptical Eastern Canada the necessity of sacrificing life.   They acted  with great iorebearance under most provoking circumstance*  12. The naval and military authorities were  ordered to co-operate, if required, and stood in  readiness. The order calling them put was not  signed by the Mayor until Tuesday morning about  10 a. m;    ;������������������   ���������<'���������_..'' "v- *:��������� ������������������>   ���������  13. The Hindus seeing that business was intended at once began tb give way. Offers to  provision "the ship had been made a week ago,  but were refused by them. ' V:  They now asked all sorts of concesisons. The  authorities refused, but. determined to exhaust  every means before using force. They..-succeeded  in bringing the Hindus to terms at last, but Sahib  Baxter says a day was wasted because the "Hindus were not beaten into subjugation and negotiated with after." The wiser councils thought it  Was better to reserve "force'' until all else had  been exhausted.  The provisions were then put aboard as quickly as was possible under the circumstances, and  good-by Komogata Maru.

V  Whilst satisfaction is felt at the decisiun given,  yet it is a, well known fact that some of those who  were to blame as much as those who are sent up  for trial have escaped scathless while others take  the.punishment upon their shoulders.  The time has come when the ratepayers must  exert their authority and show these Ward Bosses ~  that Municipal situations art not to be obtained  by those who howl loudest at Ratepayers' meetings. Undoubtedly we are now reaping the, aftermath of last January's election.  The new 750.000 gallon tank at Central Park  has now been filled with water and has stood the  test well.  This tank, according to Supt. McKay, means a  constant water service for the high levels and a  better pressure for fighting fires. It was erected  bv the B. C. Equipment Co. at a cost of about  $30,000. :.���������-.������������������  V'������i&  r/z&m.  ?!MM  FOREST FIRES  Forest fires are raging once again on our  coast. Fanned by the recent gale many fires took  a strong hold.  A fierce fire, unreported as far as we have  seen, was raging on Lasqueti in the neighborhood  of Tucker Bay last Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. r ,    -���������������������������.;. ' ;.   '���������  Another fire was observed towards Powell  River. Today we have an account of fire raging  at Ocean Park, and threatening destruction of  camper's cottages.  Last of all a report has reached the city of the  total destruction of the Campbell River Logging  Company's camp. The1 fire fighters are having a  busy time.

If the whole of. this crude petroleum were employed as fuel in steam-  raising it would not replace, allowing  for its higher thermal efficiency,  much more than five and one-half  per cent, of the world's output of  coal, whilst if used in internal combustion engines it would be equivalent  as a source of power to about 16 per  cent of the coal. Only a small proportion, however, of the crude petroleum can be regarded as available  for use as a source of power, for by  far the larger part is in demand as an  illuminating agent and as a lubricant  for machinery.  As the United States produces over  62 per cent, of the world's production of petroleum, it is interesting  to note that Dr. Day, of the United  States Geological Survey, considers  that, at the present rate of increase  of the output of petroleum, the known  oil fields of the United States will,  on the basis of the minimum quantity  of oil obtainable, be exhausted by the  year 1935, while, even if only the  present output'were maintained, the  supply would, on the same basis, not  last more than 19 years.  In 'many countries' there are,  na  doubt, vast tracts of undeveloped petroliferous territory,  but  only  drill  ing can determine this.  There is much land in the Cariboo division pre-eminently adapted  for farming along mixed or dairy  lines; also for dry farming, a system  of agriculture which will afford large  returns to the farmer. There are  various areas which are lacustrine,  but others, especially on the high  plateaux, are more or less arid, and  dry farming will offer the most profitable method, of agriculture there.  To demonstrate the method of dry  farming and the possibilities it offers  for successful farming on the semi-  arid lands of the dry belt; the Hon.  the Minister of Lands has established experimental farms, one of  wbich is located at 103 Mile House,  and the opportunities offered to the  dry farmer in this part of the province are being demonstrated there.  The office of the government agent  for the division, to whom all applications for pre-emptions within ' its  boundaries must be made, is at1 Ques-  nel.  PLAYING IN STREETS  IS DANGEROUS  But Children Must Play Somewhere  ���������Urgent Need of Safe Playgrounds.  -In connection with the "safety  first" campaign, much is being said  just now as to the- danger of children  playing on the strets. Films are being shown in the moving picture theatres, presenting dangers from motor  cars and other vehicles vividly before  the eyes of the children themselves.  No doubt this a good work for the  conservation of human life,' 'but it is  a sad state of affairs that the children  have no better place than the streets  in which to play. Very often the man  with the automobile is only using the  streets as a play ground���������there are  as many autos bound on pleasure as  on business���������and if we give the man  in the motor the right-of-way over  the child on roller skates, it is .incumbent upon us to find the letter  somt place,in which to amuse,himself, force from danger.'

Ross, Minister of  Lands, has issued a pamphlet on the  Cariboo land recording division which  describes in detail the topographic,  climatic and other features of the district. This pa/nphlet, which will be  of great value Xo those seeking information-, regarding the territory  within the boundaries of the Cariboo  land recording division, is the latest  to be published of-the series -of-sim-  ilar publications issued by the department of lands on various other  sections of the province.  The pamphlets previously published  were descriptive of the Fort George,  Fort Fraser, Skeena and Peace River  land recording divisions. There has  been a large demand for these pamphlets, which are replete with valuable inforation.  Cariboo, the district with which  this booklet deals, has been reached  since the days when gold was the  loadstone that brought the argonauts, who were pioneers of the division, - from many lands by way of  Panama, California, and across the  then untravelled Western provinces  over the Cariboo wagon road. The  Pacific Great Eastern railroad is now  being constructed to - cross the division north and south through the  valley of the Fraser river. This railroad, with many lateral and'cross-  lateral roads, will give access to large  areas of land available for, settlement. ' ' ' , \ ,    '; ~J"  Much of the land in this division is  open, rolling grass ;land and uplands  covered with bunch grass���������stockmen  find vast areas of pasturage there���������  and there are wide stretches of park-  like country with little clumps^of poplar and other light timber. Much/ of  the district, in addition to the great  extent of excellent range it offers, on  which great herds of cattle are being  pastured, will be found to be admirably adapted for dairying, seed grass  production, and the growing of general farm produce of all kinds, as  well as cattle,; horses,- sheep and hog-  raising. ; Following upon the completion of the Pacific Great Eastern railway and' resultant influx of settlers,  the Cariboo division will doubtless  stiip much farm produce to the markets on the Coast, where the opening  and open spaces would1 be reserved  here and * there" for larger children  and adults. ' Much must be done,  however, to remedy existing conditions, as well as to plain for adequate  recreation facilities in future. A much  greater use could be made of school  play grounds after hours than is now  the case, and in many cities, where  sufficient playing fields do not exist, a very considerable expense is  justified in providing such. A city  is a place in which not merely to work,  but to live completely, and complete  living includes wholesome bodily exercise for every citizen.  Farmers Teat Your Cows  A farmer at Ennismore, Ont, had a  small, undersized 'native' cow which  he intended to sell, not placing much  value on her. But cow testing showed  that she is one of the best in the  herd-both for milk-and- fat -production.   Don't sacrifice good cows.  This recalls another cow at Avers'  - t ������  Cliff, Que., bought at auction for $28  because no one knew her value. Indeed she was put in with three others  as the four poorest in the herd of the  man who was selling out. The present owner believes in cow testing,  and has refused $100 for her; she gave  322 pounds of fat in seven months.  The men who have built up herds  that average 8,000 or 9,000 pounds of  milk per cow are just those men who  know, through having proved it, that  cow testing pays. Your cows may be  like fancy china, of very fine appearance, but they may not wear well.  But the tested cows, that do produce,  that do wear well, may bring you in  sixty, or seventy dollars each during  the seven months' factory season.  C. F. W.  Rod and Gun for July, published  by W.

This steamer' has a history. Built in 1892 in  Port Glasgow, she long served between Scotland  and- Ulster. Some - years ago she was brought  - over here to take out the Cocas Island treasure  hunters, and when that noble company went on  ' the rocks the Melmore lay useless at North Vancouver for#many a day.      __,  Now she has been refitted and is one of the most  comfortable boats on our Coast for a pleasure  party and is in great request.  The trip to Buccaneer Bay is one of constant  interest. Leaving the dock there is at once the  passage of the Narrows���������a source of interesTanu  .often thrill to those even who make it daily.  Then comes the stretch along the West Shore  with its rapidly developing, settlements and new  railroad line. y  After that, Point Atkinson, and then the glorious Howe Sound���������unsurpassed in mountain scenery.   < \.      '  '  Gibson's Landing presents a scene of great  ,_ vivacity.   Itself a place greatly in -request for  summer homes, it is enlivened by the proximity  .of the Y.M.C.A. and Y.W.C.A. camps.  The next stopping place is Boberts Creek, where  ' there is quite a settlement of summer^ homes and  camps.   Here the Government is about to construct a landing stage.      .*  Sechelt���������jarimariiy an Indian village, but rapid-  " ly being built around by Vancouverites���������lies in  the Bayof that nams���������a. place of striking beauty  ' Snd the point, of portage for Sechelt Inlet, which  nans up amongst the glacier-topped mountains surrounding Jervis Inlet.  a Passing behind Trail Islands sheltering Sechelt  Pay, Mary Island is reached where the lighthouse  * sends its-gleams afar. Then Welcome Pass with  Thormanby Islands on the left and Half-Moon  Bay on the right. ' - ���������  ''Once through.the Pass the Melmore turns abruptly round a sharp ragged point and the varied  beauties of Buccaneer. Bay begin to unfold themselves.  , The Bay is quite unique on our Coast. There  is nothing quite like it anywhere else. The rock  and the sand and the water and the grass have  b'een so combined and shaped by Nature as to  -pleasedand refresh the_eye and affords, a constant _  round of pleasure to the youngsters and grownups that in yearly increasing numbers make Buccaneer Bay their camping mecca.  1'Captain Brown makes the trip pleasant for his  passengers by constant friendly attentions to their  comfort.  ^ Altogether the ''Melmore" is a welcome addition to the Union Steamship Company's fleet and  anyone who takes the round trip to Buccaneer  Bay will be richly repaid.  QOOD TEMPLARS  On Saturday, evening the officers of the District Lodge of the International Order of Good  Templars made an official visit to "Liberty's  Torch" Lodge, No. 92, at their regular weekly  meeting in the F. O. E. hall, New Westminster.  Bro. James Henderson, of Vancouver, D. G.  T., as well as numerous other District Officers  from Greater Vancouver expressed themselves as  agreeably impressed with the advance of Good  -Templary in the Fraser metropolis.  There are now two subordinate lodges located  in the city against one which was working at the  time of the fire, and which lost its property in  the conflagration.  It is expected that a sesion of the District  Lodge will be held in New Westminster before the  end of the year.,  C. F. Timrns,   District Secretary.  AS MONTREAL SEES IT  The    Montreal    Daily    Mail,    Independent,^  says:���������  "By their refusal to accept the order of the  courts of British Columbia upholding the Government of Canada in its decision to deport them,  the Hindus now on the Komagata Maru at the  Pacific coast have alienated whatever public  sympathy had gone out to them in this country.  Thus the Canadian Government may now take  action to deport them as drastic as it chooses.  In one way the Hindus have done the Canadian  people a service. They have provided some kind  of work to he done hy the Rainbow and the Niobe.  By their exhibition of militancy they have afforded the government an opportunity to use the  Canadian navy in the service of the people of the  country for the first time, since its use at political  picnics has gone out of style!"  aaaa>*i&xr*zz?-<s  OIL PRODUCTION INCREASE  Over a Quarter Million Barrels Was the Output  Last Year  The total output of crude oil in Canada in 1913  was 288,080 barrels, on which a bounty of $119,742  was paid, a bounty of V/fr cent per imperial gallon  being paid on the production of crude oil in4the  Dominion. According to the records of the Department of Trade and Commerce, the total value  of the production for the year, at the average  price of $1,782 per barrel, was $406,439.  Canada's oil production in 1912 was 43,336 barrels, valued at $345,000, or an average of $1,418  pvr barrel. The average price at Petrolia increased from $1.65 on January 1, to $1.89 on December 22, but this price has since been reduced  to $1.54."  Total value of Canadian imports of petroleum  and its products in 1913 is estimated at $13,339,-  326, as compared with $11,978,053 in 1912. Crude  nil i. being extensively used as fuel on the Pacific  Coast in both steamships and locomotives, and  the wide use of the gasoline motor has created a  big demand for gasoline.  PfQHTINQ JOE  , "I am out of politics for good. 1 intend to  devote my time in future to������ny legal business,"  yesterday declared Mr. Joseph Martin in an interview on his return to our city.  This should give the quietus to a rumor that  credits "fighting Joe" with aspirations towards  the leadership of a coalition party in Provincial  politics.  PULP MANUFACTURING IN CANADA  Statistics of the Industry in Canada for 1913.  During the calendar year 1913 Canadian pulp  mills consumed 1,109,034 cords of pulp wood  valued at $7,243,368; during the same year there  was exported to the United States an almost  equal quantity of unmanufactured pulp wopd,  which, was valued at $7,070,571. This quantity of  unmanufactured wood was sufficient to have'  supplied 60 mills of the average, size operating in  Canada in 1913. It would have made 1,035,030  ' tons of ground wood pulp, or 517,515 tons of  chemical fibre. Ground wood pulp is worth at  least $14.00 a ton, which would give $14,490,420  for the value of the pulp that could have been  made from this wood by this process. Chemical  fibre is worth at least $38.00 a tori, which would  .lave brought the value up to $19,665,570. In reality, only $7,070,570 was realized by the sale of  this 'material. The pulp industry lost the profit  that could have been made in manufacturing this  wood into pulp, and the country as a whole lost  the value represented by the cost of manufacture  in the form of wages, etc.  Laws forbidding the export of raw pulp wood  cut' from Crown lands in the different provinces  have tended to reduce the proportion of unmanufactured'pulp wood, exported, although,up to:  1913 over half of the'pulp wood in Canada was exported in this form. ���������     - :���������  The manufacture of ������ulp in Canada in 1913*  showed an increase of over twenty-eight per cent  bver that of 1912, increases taking place ,in every  ���������province but Nova Scotia. Over seventy per cent.  of. the pulp produced is ground wood, or mechanical pulp, but" the proportion of chemical  fibre is increasing each year. ��������� -  The increased manufacture of heavy Kraft  wrapping papers,has caused ������ demand for pulp  made by the sulphate process and\the manufacture of this particular kind of chemical fibre has  increased considerably; In the last twef years. The  increase in the home manufacture of all classes of  papers is shown by the decrease in the exports of  pulp and the increase in imports of chemical fibre  from other countries.  INDIA IS NOT OVERCROWDED       -ASIA'S CONDITION  With the possible exception of Japan,, no, region in Asia has at present more population than  it can comfortably support according to the  London Times, which has been making investigations to secure information for the study of the  problems of Eastern immigration. China is not  overcrowded. Persia and Western Asia generally is sparsely populated. While certain parts  of the Punjab and Bengal are very densely settled  there is a great deal of vacant land in Inda.  The Western world can fairly ask the Eastern  peoples to settle their own land before they come  crowding into the Western hemisphere to raise  the very stormy issues which immigration evokes.  The Asiatic at present comes to America not because there is an overflow; of population at home,  but because money is easier made and sooner  made in America. As a general rule, his ambition  to gather sufficient means, to be able to return  home and live in comfort or luxury in his favorite  environment to the end of his days.  India has an area of 1,800,000 square miles.  In other words the Eastern Empire is about four  and a half times-as large as British Columbia.  Two-fifths of its .area has less tlian 100 persons  to the square mile, and there are large tracts of  country with only twenty-five persons to the  square mile. In practically every industry based  on modern capitalistic conditions there is a shortage of labor, and those who have resided in the  country and studied its needs claim that this  labor shortage is seriously retarding economic development. In Assam, one of the great tea-growing districts, the labor difficulty is pronounced as  it also is in Bengal and Upper India. Factories,  workshops, mills, collieries, and transport work-  all feel the pinch. In 1905, at a conference of the  Indian and Ceylon Chamber of Commerce, a per  solution was passed asking the governmentto apt -  point a commission to investigate the inadequacy  of labor for orgainzed industries. Since that time  the difficulty has become more acute each year.r  In India, according to the London Times, there  is 200,000 miles of habitable land unoccupied. If  that be so, there is no need to fear ������ rush of Hindus to America impelled by a life and death struggle.  The above is an editorial from the .Montreal  Daily Mail of July 14. _'  Mr. R. C. Hodgson has the distinguished honor  of being the first Master of a< lodge of Free Masons in South Vancouver. He has been elected  and installed by the Grand Lodge Officers to fill  the chair in Maple Leaf Lodge, which has been  constituted at Thirty-First^ Ayenue and Main  Street.  This is the second occasion Mr. Hodgson has  occupied the position of Master of a Masonic  lodge, having been. Master of Mount Hermon during the year 1905.  <, The new lodge has been launched forth under  very happy auspices, the number of old Masonic  brethren who have joined augurs well for it's future prosperity. '  Mr. Hodgson is an old resident of Vancouver,  being one ofthose who had to flee before the disastrous fire of thirty years' ago.  He was the first President of the South Vancouver Board of Trade, the first Chairman of the  South Vancouver School Board, and the first  President of the South Vancouver Conservative  Association.  C. S. McMoran, who nas been installed as S.  W. of the .of the newly, constituted Maple Leaf  Lodge of Free Masons is .the first to have this  honor conferred upon him .in South Vancouver.  He was initiated in Mount Hermon Lodge about  six years ago. ; -  Mr. McMorran occupies the responsible position of outside manager for the Hodgson Plumbing Company, having served his apprenticeship  under the firm of Stearman & Hodgson, so that  since he left school, 14 years ago, he has���������worked  directly under R.

To Editor Western Call:���������  Sir,-       '       ^  I would be obliged if you would  kindly afford me space through tbe  medium" of your paper to call attention of farmers , and land owners  generally in your district' to the necessity for waging a vigorous campaign against noxious- weeds, which  are becoming so prevalent in .many  of our best farming; districts throughout the Province. >-  All Provincial Constables and Forest Guards have been again appointed as agents for this' Department  towards the enforcement of the provisions of the ^Noxious Weeds Act.  In addition, Noxious Weed Inspectors have been appointed in~ different  districts of the Province, whose duties will be to carefully go over their  districts; see that farmers and land  owners  are  taking    the    necessary  steps to destroy the weeds growing  on their lands, and in the event of  non-compliance with notices served  on them to institute proceedings  against them.  The Department" is determined to  use every' legitimate effort to have  the,provisions of the act strictly enforced, and we look for the whole  hearted co-operation of the farmers  themselves in this, most important  matter.  I would also draw your attention  to the attached statement, which has  been drawn up in the. Department with  regard to the Noxious Weeds, which  are listed in the Act. Methods of  destruction are outlined, and I think  that the publication of same would be  Of material benefit "to the agriculturists of the Province.  I have the honor to be, Sir,  Your obedient servant,  Wm. E. Scott,  Deputy Minister,  into    three  times without being fatigued.

Annuals.-Jbi.ennials and perennials. ,  (1) Annuals complete their growth in a ,year. The prevention of the  was sub'iect tol ^ormat'������n of'seed for one. year, followed J>y careful cultivation to kill  f������ ������������������.,.../��������� ........   au" young plants, will soon eradicate Annuals.    In  addition  to  this,  all  seed in soil should be encouraged to germinate in order to complete control.' i  (2) Bi-ennials require two seasons to complete their .growth, the  flowers and seeds being'produced -during 'the second year. Due notice  should be taken of this fact when fighting weeds of this class.  (3) Per-ennials are plants which continue to grow for, many years,  being propagated by underground root-stalks, stems, etc., as well as by  seeds. The aim in fighting per-ennials should be to prevent any growth  from being made, hence starve the root systems.  There is no known weed which cannot be eradicated if proper measures are taken. "Never allow seeds to ripen, and if they do, encourage  them to grow so the plants may be killed by cultivation.  I have hundreds of testimonials like  the above.

Riftist substitutes, wMeb tit  most uitsiitisfsotory.  Notwithstanding the fact that the  fisheries has made rapid progress in  British Columbia in recent years, and  now constitutes one of the' most important branches of industry in the  province, there are still excellent opportunities for building up' a profitable trade in canning certain kinds  of fish. It is the opinion of those  who'are familiar with conditions that  scarcely a beginning has been made  in commercially exploiting the many  varieties of fish which abound in  these waters. - Vast shoals of herring  run for months every year in the  hundreds of bays and - inlets along  the thousand miles of British Columbia's sheltered 'seacoast. They teem  in shoals in NanaimcT, Pender and  Prince * Rupert harbors, Quatsino  sound, and many other harbors and  bays, frbm' the Fraser river to the  Alaskan boundary. Every year  thousands of tons of herring are  swept in by the tides to be left  stranded and dying'on the shores of a  hundred bays: This is a great waste  of material and opportunity which  does not seem have been taken into  account by those who are interested  in'the fisheries industry.  Interest Centres in Salmon Fishing  The interest in the British Columbia fishing industry has so far been  centered almost entirely in salmon  packing, and there is no lack of capital  and enterprise >' in that particular  branch, which has been exploited to  the neglect of other important' features of the.business. The season of  the salmon run is short, and tbe canneries are closed down during most  of the year, while herripg can be  taken all ti>e year round along the  entire coast, although the heavy run  is during the winter months. This  would enable the factories to continue'operations throughout tbe year  and' would obviate, to a large extent, the difficulty of securing a suf-  jficient number of hands to handle  the business .during, the^high season  in the salmon canning industry.  i .    - tr  fferring and Halibut  It is only in recent years that halibut have been taken>in commercial  quantities on the British Columbia  coast, and, so far, the packing of sardines is practically an untried enterprise. The herring, which are  caught in large quantities, are now  mainly used as bait in the halibut  fisheries, and for that purpose only  the larger fish are kept. Nothing is  done with the smaller ones, which  could be packed for sardines. There  are, along the provincial coast, scores  of fine sites for sardine factories,  where the fish could be caught in adjacent waters in unlimited quantities  and at small expense.���������U. S.

Dr.  George hpts: endeavored to tracp the  cause andWoiig;|it>he had discovered  it in Russiarf^thistle, ���������'the bright green  of which from '.April to the present  time, seemed to have attracted his  cows'and possibly others.  The doctor pron#>tly sent a sample  to Ottawa with - description of the  symptoms and treatment, and the reply came back that there was nothing  poisonous in the weed. Whatever may  have been the1 cause there have been  sufficient cases on the west side of the  North Thompsdn to necessitate a  specialist being sent there at once and  steps should be taken to impress this  on the authorities without delay. The  matter has been carried as far as our  local practitioner has power, and the  next step will be to have the' stomach  of the next victim analyzed. This  will cost $20 besides transportation  charges, and the question is who is  to pay it?' The owner of a dead-cow  don't feel that way, nor do those  whose animals have, up to the present  time, escaped. '  Both Federal and dominion governments have the best of professional  skill at their command and notification ought to be sufficient to secure  immediate investigation.      .  The symptoms are aB follows: ���������A  cow may be in perfect health and -full  of milk in the morning, but at night  she-is bloated, has lost two-thirds of  her milk and becomes emaciated with  a foul diarrhoea which can be  smelled forty yards away, and stifk  muscular movements denoting the effect of poison. Dr. George's treatment has been effectual when commenced in time, but a day's delay  minimizes the chance of recovery.  Russian thistle made it's appearance  in Canada about eight years-ago, and  is spreading to'an alarming extent.  It is so serious a pest that one authority has called it aV Russian invasion costing more every year than  the damage done by the Russians in  their unfortunate attack upon the  North Sea fishing fleet the world  rang with that, but little attention  will be paid to this equally 'important disaster until more farms are decimated by it. ' -    -\  The pest was first noticed in this  neighborhood about two years ago,  and pow it can be found in every direction. The protective spikes are  not'yet formed, and'there is now no  hindrance to cattle eating it. When  fully matured it . breaks off at the  root and winds carry it over the  country in t^ie same way as Tumbling Mustard. It will, have to be  fought, not only on cultivated land  where it may be kept in check, but on  roadsides an dunoccupied lands, and  no time should be lost in preventing  the distribution of the seed now forming.  Nechaco, Chilcoten and  North Thompson  Victorii, B. C,  Three new pre-emptors' maps covering the Nechaco, Chilcoten and  North Thompson dictricts, have just  been issued by the Surveys Branch of  the Department of Lands. These  maps form part of a series of ten covering approximately 100,000 square  miles .of landT and will prove of great  assistance to intending pre-emptors.  They show the lands surveyed to  date in the sections covered, the  tracts available for pre-emption being  shown in pink, while those taken up  are indicated in white. The surveyed  areas shown in pink and the unsur-  veyed land shown in the same color  can be pre-empted at the office of the  government agent of the land recording division in which it is situated.  It is necesary to stake the unsur-  veyed land and describe it according  to metes and bounds in the application. The surveyed tracts can be applied for without staking, being described in the application by their  number. _  Maps have already been isued in  this series showing the lands for preemption in the Fort George and Tete  Jaune districts. It was in these districts that 80,000 acres 'was opened  to pre-emption last month, and over  three-quarters of this land remains  open. The new maps cover the areas  adjoining that embraced in previous  ones, the whole series are drawn to  connect with each other.  'r The Nechaco sheet'shows the territory westward of the Fort George  district extending to the Hazelton  division ^and embraces the great interior lake'basin, and the Nechaco, En-  dako and other fertile.valleys. The  North1 Thompson sheet, shows the  land adjoining the new C. N. P. railway, and', extends northward from  the railway belt to the territory embraced in the maps previously published. -It includes the'VCanem Lake,  BridgeV Lake and' Bonaparte districts  of Eastern Lillooet and the Clearwater, Barrfer'e and Adams Lake districts, other areas in which settlement is taking place. The Chilcoten  sheet covers the northern Lilooet and  southern Cariboo plateaux and valleys. Another map,) the Queshel  sheet, is being completed, which 'will  cover the territory between that embraced in the Chilcoten and North  Thompson sheets.  The series of pre-emptors' maps,  together with, the series of pamphlets  published by the* Department of  Lands describing in detail, the topographic and other featqres of the  Fort George, Fort Fraser, Skeena,  Cariboo and Peace River Land Recording divisions, will prove of great  value to intending settlers.
