States lumber wai ooming into Canada, and by R clever inp device was prepJtred In sucli a to the payment of duly called for by the Canadian CUB- toms tariff.. The sections of the cus- toms regulations which apply to lum- ber are as follows: Section 503: "Planks, boards and other lumber of wooti, sawn; split, or cut and dressed on one aide but not further manufactured, free." Section 505: "Sawn boards, planka and deals plan- ed or dressed on one side CT both sides, when the edgea thereof are jointed or longued and grooved. 25 per cent." Section 50fi: "Lumber not otherwise provided, 'la per cent." "The practice of preparing, dimeu- alpn lumber such as 2x4t-.2xfl, 2x8, nml 2x12 for the Canadian ami United States markets is by'dressing it on and on one odgp, but tlie American mills, instead o-r dress- ing, or whnt is technically, termed their lumber In- tended for the Canadian market with j a pinner, are doing, the work a fine said W. A. Anstle, secre- tary of Lumber Manu- facturers' nasoclation on Saturday. "In some instances they arc- reduc- ing this class of stock.'.to uniform thickness with aaws and to a uniform width by planing one edge. Uotli pro-1 cesses are obviouslv for the purpose of evading the payment of duty pro vided by the Canadian taritf and the; Canadian manufacturers being desir- ous of obtaining the full protection pro vided by the laws, have frequently urged upon the authorities the- neces-j sity of investigating the mailer and i enforcing the law. As tbe (uicstlon in- volves some technical, knowledge the probably being anxious to lie strictly fair to manufacturers and Importers alike, lias'declined, to" riil-a in the matter.' Hut to bring it to a. focus a'tent case has been order- ed.

Therefore, It.

They claim, tail they can show, that: such was the intention of. the government at the time the tariff was framed. "Recently a car of the'disputed ma- terial was assessed duty at Winnipeg and ah was taken by the im- porter affected to the exchequer court Against, the action of the customs. The ease will be heard early In May and ia the interim all collectors of customs have been notified to inform importers that further shipment's" wil I be subject to the 'determination1 of the (court. "Lumber manufacturers from Brit- ish Columbia, Alberto, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, 'Ontario, Quebec and the Maritime Provinces will be; represent- ed at the trial. Importers from the western provinces will also .attend and American manufacturers have stated they are prepared to expend consid- erable money to defeat the contention of the Canadian manufacturers. They have found the Canadian market a con venlent -dumping ground -for their sur- plus declared Mr. Anstie. The prohibition bylaw recently pass- ed by the Wright (Que.) county coun- cil has been PACIFIC COAST PULSATING WITH THE PROSPECTS OF DEVEL- OPMENT (Rev. S. D.'Chown in Christian .Guardian) If one places.his ear to the ground he'will readily discern a, new-note in the >ium of activity 'in nearly every department o-f life in British Colum- bia. Unprecedented expansions in all directions is the watchword of the Jibur. e With the opening of the Panama Canal in the near Euro- pean continent will send hordes of immigrants to this province and it will become a new front door to Can- ada. Business is now instinct with anticipation of the larger day the opening of the canal will usher in. The whole Pacific coast of North Am- erica is palpitant with romantic ex- pectation. British Columbia is larger than all the Pacific states, put together (leav- ing out, perhaps, the single exception of Southern California.) and has great- er inducements to offer to 'the immi- grant than any of the commonwealths farther south. A prominent steam- ship man has that the fare from Europe for an immigrant to the Pacifiti port, when the .Panama canal is completed, will :be only'about more than to the Atlantic coast; arid as the immigrant, like'other people, desires to get the moat for his money, it is believed he will take ship for British Columbia rather than: for a more southerly port. It is on this ac- count, and for oilier reasons argu-sd, that British Columbia will attain the greatest 'relative .Increase in popula- tion and the prosperity through the Incoming of foreign peoples. It would not be surprising, indeed, it the wave of i'immigration should rush up the Fraser and the Bulkley Valleys with such force -as to flow into the Peace Alberta, at 'all points, and that some of its spray should dash over to the ;fringes' of Saskatchewan. It begets a tremendous anxtoty in one's heart to stand upon! these western shores and attempt to estimate the Titan ferees which are l destined to make themselves felt In our civilization.
