The third session of the seventeenth parliament of British Columbia has passed into history, and
the government is no doubt glad
that it is all over and that it can
settle down to business. The
government has discovered that
occupying office during a period of
world trade depression his distinct
disadvantages. Almost everyone
is exceedingly free with their
criticism. During the last session
the government received their full
measure both from within and
without their own party. But
such things are to be expected
during hard time periods. Pros'
perous times make a government
popular. But when dull times
arrive and falling revenues call for
increased taxation the government
in power is damned whether rightly
or wrongly. Before damning too
strongly, we should remember
that every province in Canada,
with the exception of Quebec,
showed a deficit last year. This
means increased taxation or the
ruthless cutting of expenditures,
We should also remember that the
Federal Government balance sheet
for last year shows a big deficit.
Canada is not the only country
showing a deficit on last year's
operations. Great Britain is also
meeting a huge deficit with increased taxation. Australia is in such
a bad state financially that she cannot even meet the interest payments
on her loans, and Peru is in the
same category. Brazil, Argentine
and other South American republics show a large deficit for last
year. So bad have conditions
become in South America that
governments were forcibly ejected
by the people. New governments
were put into office, but no single
government can change world conditions, The trouble confronting
the world today is lack of markets
for both manufactured goods and
raw materials. No single government can create these markets.
Prosperity in any single country
depends entirely on world-wide
conditions. If we elected a new
government in British Columbia
every three or six months during
the present depression, we would
not be any better off. The government cannot force other countries to buy'our lumber, minerals,
fish or manufactured goods. Good
times will arrive when higher
prices prevail, and the demand for
our products increase. The government that happens to be in
power during hard times is unlucky,
and are often blamed for things
over which they have no control.
Canadian National Railways Forging Ahead
Says Thornton
Quebec, P. Q., April 4. Notwithstanding lower revenues in
1930, due to world conditions and
general depression, notwithstanding a greater mileage requiring
maintenance, a lower scale of rates
and a higher scale of wages, net
earnings of the Canadian National
Railways last year were three times
greater than those of 1922, Sir
Henry Thornton, President and
Chairman told the Quebec Canadian Club recently.
This was due, the Railway President said, to a sense of responsibility to the public which owned the
system and to the efficiency with
which it's operations were carried
The operating figures he gave
which excluded Eastern lines,
showed that gross revenues in 1922
were $223,627,371 in the first year,
as compared with $221,770,445 in
1930. The gross was therefore
about $2,000,000 less. Expenses,
however, were $17,000,000 less in
1930 than in 1922, $185,259,507 as
compared with $212,906,671.
Net earnings in 1930 were $26,-
510,938 as compared with $10,720,-
700 in 1922, an improvement of
$16,000,000. In the meantime, a
first class railway system was being
constructed out of the chaos of a
number of dilapidated, unconnected
lines, and the Canadian National
system emerged as a transcontinental railway fully equipped for it's
great task to serve the public with
intelligence and efficiency as well as

^Jnrivalled for its scenic splendors, the beauty of its lakes and
streams and their world-wide reputation as fishing-grounds,   Ontario
offers the holiday-seeker as fine
territory as any to be found on the
American Continent.    Bungalow-
camps bring practically virgin areas
within easy reach of the diBciples
of Isaac Walton, with handy connections from Toronto and other
points by Canadian Pacific Railway
lines. These camps are a combination of the lure of the wilderness
with the comforts of civilization and
consist of individual "camps   or
sleeping-cottages,   centred ^on   a
dining and recreation hall. Modern
furniture  and   conveniences  predominate, and thus the individual or
family seeking a- country vacation
find golf, tennis, hiking, swimming
sailing, canoeing, motor-boating ana
dancing for their amusement, apart
from a wide variety of fishing, which
may be carried out, either in tne
vicinity of the camps themselves, or
back in the hinterland, with competent guides, who also act"
servants.  On the main transcontinental line of the Cana
dian Pacific Railway, three
such camps are found in
the Province of Ontario.
At French, River, 216
miles north of Toronto,
within a stone's throw of
is s well-found camp,
which offers muskel lunge
and great northern pike
to the fisherman.   At Nipigon, 22-hours run from
Toronto,  trout, pike  and
pickerel  are  the   principal
offerings and at the   Devil'i
'Gap,   Kenora,   Lake  of  the
Woods, Ontario, 126 miles east
of Winnipeg, the famous Canadian
black bass  offers  sport  such  aB
anglers dream of, but rarely get.
All these camps combine the excellent features already referred to
and   are   visited   by   fishermen,
tourists and holidaying families from all quarters of
the globe, each summer.   They have a thoroughly
enjoyable and thrilling holiday time and return
each season in ever increasing numbers. They are
part of a great chain of such installation operated
fn connection with the railway, for the purpose
' of taking people "back to nature" and vet giving
'■ them the same standards of accommodation and
I service as are found elsewhere throughout its sys-
item.    The  pictures show:  (1) A scene at the

A surprising number of people
were present at the Elks' Hall on
Thursday, April 2nd. to hear the
expressive singing of the sacred

augmented choir and soloists. The
difficult solos were nicely sung by
Mrs. J. L. Anderson, Mr. W. F.
Eve, Mr. N. R. Retfman and Mr.
S. B. Roberts, and the singing of
the choral parts was very good. It

presentation of this sacred music.
