This fact alone presages for the op- ening Congress one of the most not- able meetings since it was organized in Salt Lake City, Utah, .in 1881. Valuable information on the various methods of irrigation in different countries will he available this Congress, anti this can be studied to mutual advantage by all who attend. Canadians may be able to learn much from the methods used" in the various parts oi the United States and for- eign countries. J. S.

Delegates .wiir be shown over the great irrigation project which begins practically at the city limits and ex- tends 150 miles to the east. This is the greatest project of its kind on the American continent, and will at-" tract the attention of thousands of usitors and delegates. Vancouver, B.C., May up to noon toay show that during last nisht and this forenoon damage of not less than has been done by bush fires within twenty miles of Vancouver. Dry weather for weeks has made the forests like tin- der, and so numerous are the out- breaks that a great pall of smoke hangs over the city this morning. TJiis is the Hottest day of the sea- Bon so far, and there is no rain in sight. The most serious blaze appears to be at North Vancouver, where there is a great biaze running up Lynn Val- ley, and sweeping along the sides of Grouse Mountain. Besides a shingle mill, eight cottages have been hu'rn- ed, and there are forty more in the patli of the blaze. A special steamer, with government firefightars aboard, left this morning for Sliamon, a short distance up the coast, to back fire a blaze that had got into the timber. Unless rain cornea there is a very serious loss in prospect. Bush fires have broken out in a doz- en sections of Greater Vancouver. A great smoke is rising from Grouse Mountain, behind North Vancouver, where ;i small saw mill and three houses "were burned at nine o'clock this morning. A score of people had to flee for tlieir lives. In Ontario Also Lindsay, Ont., May of acres of good timber are being razed to the ground in Ha'iburton county, and it is reported that the northern part of the county of Hallhnrton is alive with bush fires. For two weeks past fires have been raging until they have assumed a dangerous condition and houses and barns are in peril. At Harburn'the fire is said to be beyond control, sweeping along miles wide.- Thos. Graham of. Wilberforce re- ports that the wSiole c.ountry between Bancroft and Kinrnount Junction, along the line of the I. B. O. Rail- way, Is on fire a distance of some 60 miles.
