Anyox Canadian Legion
The Anyox Branch of the' Canadian Legion received a communication . from the B. C. Provincial
Headquarters of the Legion as
"A short time ago we took up
the question with the chairman of
the Tribunal insofar as it oovers
a visit of the Tribunal to Northern
British Columbia. The idea was
to have the Tribunal hold sessions
at as many places in the North,
without creating any undue delay
in their program.
"The question is now being
asked as to the probable number of
appeal cases they will have to
hear. Can you forward to me
at your earliest convenience the
name, regimental number, and address of veterans who are making
an appeal against adverse conditions decisions of the Pension
Board. All those cases must come
within the provisions of the appeal
legislation.    We will then forward
vocate, who will arrange   the trip
for the Tribunal."
Those wishing to take advantage
of this opportunity of having thei
appeals dealt with should turn in
their names to Mr. J. A. D. Stew

The Over  Production
Question Explained
An interesting definition of overproduction which contrasts the
difference between a physical and
economic surplus is provided in the
current issue of "The Economic
Annalist," official organ of the
Economics Branch of the Dominion
Department of Agriculture.
After pointing out the confusion
which frequently arises between the
physical surplus and the economic
surplus, The Annalist goes on to
say "there is seldom a physical surplus of farm products except in the
case of perishable products, because
farm products are usually consumed
at some price, but there might be
an economic surplus since goods
are produced, to be sold, not to be
given away. When the layman
speaks of over-production he is
thinking of it in the physical sense;
when the economist speaks of it
he means that there is more of a
commodity than can or will be used
at a price which will induce farmers
to again attempt to produce that
quantity. There may be many hungry people in the world but if commodities, wheat for example, cannot be sold at prices that will
induce further production of that
commodity then there is a surplus
in the economic sense."
R. K. Neill of Premier
Fame Loses Fortune
R. K. Neil, prominent mining
man of Spokane, has filed a petition
for bankruptcy. He lost $750,000
in the Culbertson store failure last
fall. His only claim to property
exemption is for his clothes and
$250 in cash. Neil made a fortune
out of the Premier mine in northern
British Columbia and in the early
development of the St. Eugene
mine at Moyie he was associated
the late James Cronin and Messrs.
Finch and Campbell.
R. K. Neill was responsible for
the successful development of the
famous Premier Mine at Stewart.
After others had unsuccessfully developed it, and it had been condemned by many mining engineers,
he continued development work,
and in a short time he proved that
the Premier contained large bodies
of high grade ore. His success
attracted the Guggenheim interests
of New York who purchased control of the property.
Advertise in The
Consolidated Co. Using
Airmen of the Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co. of Canada, en
gaged in aerial exploration, have
flown approximately 425,000 miles
since the inception of the service in
the winter of 1928-29, W. G. Jew-
itt of that company stated in an
address at the annual general meet
ing of the Canadian Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy at Ottawa
recently. In the thousands of miles
travelled there had been no serious
injury to the personnel he stated.
Prince Albert, Sask.; The Pas,
Man.; Sioux Lookout, Ont., Sen-
neterre, Que ; and Burns Lake,
B. C, have been used as bases for
aerial exploration, he stated, and
the operations of the staff were
extended and enlarged.
The planes were used reconnaissance, prospecting, examination of
properties and supply of properties
The use of aircraft has added in
controlling and expediating work
of prospecting properties, he said.
The Ford Company of Canada
has in view the erection of an
assembly plant in Burnaby near
Vancouver this year. According to
W. R. Campbell, president of the
company, they have secured a site
of eight acres. Should the plant
be constructed it is expected to
reduce the cost of freight from 'the
east materially, since the machines
can be sent packed in boxes instead
of in the bulky, completed state.

Cattle Shipments to Europe
St. John, N. B. April 11.—Cattle
shipments from Canada to Europe
have been staging a comeback and
from reports received, it is estimated that 50,000 head of western
cattle will be shipped to Europe
from Canada tViis year, according
to a statement made by a prominent livestock man in this city.
Recently a large number of Western Cattle were transported via
Canadian National Railways to the
Atlantic seaboard for shipment to
Glasgow, Scotland.
Expects  Shortage of B. C.
From present appearances there
will not be sufficient B. C. potatoes
left from the 1930 crop to carry
over for consumption until the new
crop comes in. In February and
March 4,306 tons were sold from
storage leaving 4,113 tons to finish
up the season. At the former rate
of consumption they would not last
till the end of May. ,«

Historic Wolfe's Cove Assumes New Aspect
The  scene  of  the  landing   of
General Wolfe, under the towering crags crowned by the Plains of
Abraham and the City of Quebec,
is about to become the setting for
yet another important event in the
history of Canada.   On September
13,  1769, the British forces disembarked at what is now known as
Wolfe's Cove, to capture Quebec.
On June 2, 1931, passengers from
the new 42,600-ton Canadian Pacific
liner "Empress of Britain", on her
maiden voyage from Southampton,
will land within a few yards
of   the   same
spot   and   be
taken by train,
through a tunnel slightly
over a mile
long, under the
historic battlefield on which
the English
hero   lost   his
life,  direct to
the   Canadian
Pacific's main line to  Montreal.
This new traffic link, which is being
completed by the company at a cost
of some $2,000,000, will eliminate
the present journey through Quebec's   terminals   and   materially
General Wolfe
shorten the running time from the
ship's side to all important Canadian and American centres. A
concrete quay-wall, 4,300 feet in
length, with 40 feet of water at low
tide, will provide berthing space for
the new giantess and Iter sister
"White Empresses", and five railway tracks, converging into one
at the end of the wharf and thence
turning Into the new tunnel, will
serve to transfer passengers from
the bosom of the St. Lawrence to
their respective destinations. Disembarkation will be effected through
a two-storey shed, with stairways
leading down to the trains.   The
fiictures show: (1) Wolfe's army
anding to capture Quebec, (from
an old drawing). (2) The tunnel
mouth near the riverside, now under
construction. (3) General Wolie,

Sitka spruce to make a pound, but
a single tree in British Columbia
will grow to a size which will cut
from 8,000 to 10,000 bd. ft. of

require about 15,000 feet, hence
two good sized Sitka spruce would
build the house with a few thousand
feet to spare.
