"I see no reason why white people
In British Columbia should have to
pay $3.80 per ton more freight rates
on grain Imported for domestic .use
than Is paid on grain shipped through
British Columbia pouts for the consumption of Orientals," states Premier Oliver. He shows .that while
there was a reduction of IT perOMt
in this connection In 1922, still It
cost 19 cents per hundred mo*, e to

from| the prairies for domestic use

Hon. E. D. Barrow comes out with
the Pleasing report that British Columbia produces more potatoes* to the
acre than any othen Province In Canada, This Is partly due to the strict
supervision and Inspection of seed,
and to the encouragefent and advice
given by department officials, who

to Improve the quality and volume of
the  spud output   In  this Province.

This hopeful report during the day
| waa spread quite widely, and, naturally, all were expecting, in a few
days, to hear that thu danger point
was passed. At about 6:30 a wire to
the family conveyed the sad Intellg-
enco that the sufferer had suddenly
succumbed. Eveoiyono expressed.keen
and sorrowful surprise at the sad
termination   to  their bright hopes.
Mrs. Fooks (nee Miss Vera Anderson) waa 22 years of age, which years
she had spent in the district, attend-
lsg the Maple Ridge School and thereafter taking up phone service, to ba
followed In turn by three years' service as night operator In the Hammond office. Here she won much
praise for very perfect and always
most kindly attention to duty and to
her patron*.: For a number of yeara
the departed kept house for her father
—her mother having predeceased her
by 'many years.
The funeral took place from St
John's Church of England on Wednesday at 2:30, the Rev. T. W. F. c.e
Penoler officiating. The Church war
filled, with about as many outside,
not to mention the large concourse
that had gathered at the grave.

and consolation,-the service being very
appropriate. Mlsa, Roberts presided

with her a vivid Impression of the personality of the young man she had so
unexpectedly mot on lhe trail. The
faded, worn and slouchy scout's uniform he wore, and other details of his
accoutrements were taken in at a
glance. His fair, open and handsome
countenance and his self-reliant" bearing appealed lo her fancy. Though
she had abruptly dismissed him, refusing his offered assistance, she still
felt assured that she would meet him
on her return home and would then
make amends for her seeming rudeness. She was aware that it was not
customary for strangers lo pass their
home, alter a long day's journey, without being offered the hospitality of a
night's lodging. Those transient
travellers on many occasions, were
welcomed at her home. They proved
pleasing diversions from the general
routine and monotony of the lonely
lives those early pioneers have had to
pass in a district rejnote from the
more congenial advantages of more
settled communities. Instead of
those visits proving an inconvenience
they were often the sojorce of considerable social pleasure'to them. As

While she loved the freedom of the
life she led among the hills, the valleys and the lakes, and the surrounding landscapes appealed to her aesthetic tastes, yet there was the yearning
for companionship and the society of

There are many women who find their

Tho trouble may bo slight, yet cause
such annoying symptoms as dragging
pains, weakness and a run-down feeling.
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound is a splendid medicine for such

those symptoms by removing the cause
of them. Mra. Ritchie's experience is
but one of many.

in her abstraction, she spurred her
horse to greater speed as she proceeded in her quest, for the horses,
ll was this feeling of elation that
was partly responsible for her failure
to examine more closely her surroundings as she cantered in the
direction of two horses thai she noticed grazing close in to the edge of
a bluff some distance away. Confident
that they were the horses she was in
search of, she headed In Ihal direction with an air of abstraction thai
made her praclically oblivious Of any
danger thai might be lurking in the
As she rounded the edge of the bluff
she was startled from her reverie by
a hoarse command Of, "Stop! Pul up
your hands." The suddenness of this
order roused her at once to action.
Her quick wits at a glance took in the
situation, and convinced her of the
futility of an attempt lo escape or loj
offer resistance. All at once she
seemed lo be surrounded by a band of
five men. Their forbidding aspects
and pointing guns striking terror to
her heart admitted of no temporizing
action. She was approached by a
dark complexloned, heavy built man.
who seized her bridle rein and relieved
her of her revolver. After a cursory
examination of her horse and a close
scrutiny of her face, he said. "Jump
down young fellow, this? is my horse
you are riding."
(loaded to desperation by the holdup and resenting the insolence of his
looks and order, she answered, "No,
sir; this is nol your horse. Vou have
no righi to stop me in this way, nor
Interefcre with me in any manner.
The Mounted Police shall be notified
of this insolent hold-up of me."
"The Mounted Police he d d. We
have a line on them gents, and they
won't help you this time. Jump down
or I'll pull you off." ^v
Realizing that protest or resistance
would be useless, and following th/
promptings ui her feminine intuition,
she passively yielded to Inevitable
necessity and dismounted as requested'by him. After again looking inlo
her face, he snatched off her hat. Then
wiih on insolent leering grin on —his
face, he said, "I thought so." Quickly replacing it on her head, In' said,
loud enough for all to hear: "Young
fella, so that you will not put the
d_d Red Coals on our track, you
will come along witli us to-night."
After his close seruitiny of her face
she was conscious of ihe facl lhat he
was aware of her sex. II. was also
clear lo her that he desired to conceal
his discovery from the rest, of his
companions. This added to her fear
of the man, but still she decided, in
lhe meantime, to submit to his orders.
Her feminine Intuition warned her
tiiat discreet silence would be her safest plan for lhe present. She had
nothing lo expect nor hope for from
Ihe other members of tlie gang, wlpi
seemed to be acting under his orders.
Taking a lariat from one of the
saddles close at hand, he led her into
the shelter of Ihe bluff. Fil'Sl he
searched her for any weapon she
mitthi have in her possession. He
then fastened the loop end of the
hula I round her walsi and bound her
securely to a birch tree. He, how-

Stood for some time leaning against
the tree, and alter a while sal down.
As the twlliglii deepened she endear-.
ored 'o evolve iii her mind a plan of
escape, hut the more she though! of
her situation Ihe more hopeless her
chances, seemed to be. The only
avenue ot escape that presented itself
to her was. the hope that her father
would organize a search parly for Tier
rescue, bul as this would take some
lime to accomplish, It offered * her
small consolation. By the time ns-
sislance could be called by her father
these bandits would have taken her
many miles away from the scene of
the hold-up. She also feared the'
dangers that WOUldAttend an attempt
al rescue. She realized Ihal she was
in the hands of desperadoes—men
who would not hesitate to commit
murder to escape capture. In her
desperation she faced' 'the tree to
which she was tied, and leaning
against il, offered up a fervent silent
prayer In Cod for help, courage and
inspiration in her dangerous plight.
As-she thus prayed, her hand came in
contacl with an overhanging piece of
loose birch hark. This she absently
stripped off ihe tree, and, later, slipped ii into the pockel of her jacket.
Then turning around she sat down
with her back against the tree for
A lew feat awav the men were engaged in conversation carried on in
low voices. Listening Intently to
their conversation, she overheard
them discussing their plans of escape
lo lhe south.
She learned that ii was Ihelr intention lo start on their trip as soon as
It was dark. She further overheard
thai their objective for tile first stage
of their journey was a secret camping
ground in lly valley of tlie SpUl'is.
There they intended to remain in hiding during lhe nexl day and till shortly before daylight ihe next morning.
Ai that hour they would make a dash
across the l'nited Stales boundary,
when in the darkness of early morning, they were confident of escaping
the vigilance of Hie Mounted Police,
who, during ihe troublesome times of
ihal year, kept a strict patrol along
the boundary.
Inspired by ihe Information overheard and deciding to make use of lhe
shadow of the increasing darkness,
she pulled out. of her pocket the roll
of birch bark. Then, wiih tlie stub
of a pencil Ihal she had in her pocket,
she scribbled on its smooth surface a
note, giving the gist of lhe plans of
Ihe outlaws. Replacing it into her
pocket, she decided lo await an oppor-
lunily to drop it where il would be
easily noticed by a rescue parly.
Sitting there as the darkness deepened, her .thoughts wandered back to
her home. She thought thai, at that
hour her mother, always solicitous of
her safely, would be anxiously looking for her return. Slowly the tears
crept down her cheeks as, more and
more, she realized tlie anguish of her
mother's heart al the unknown fate of
her only child. Those were not tears
of self-pity nor of fear, but of sorrow
and sympathy for the father and
mother, who were soon fated lo realize the dangers that encompassed her.
Bound and held captive as she was in
ihe hands of the merciless bandits,
she had not yet, however, abandoned
hopes of escape or rescue. Her intuition and the buoyancy of youth kept
up her spirits, and Ihe dangers that.
threatened her only tended to sharpen her wits. With all her faculties
alert lo all lhat passed around her,
she bravely faced the situation in
which she found herself placed. Helpless as she semed to be. she was still
hopeful that an opening for escape
would present itself to her. Thus
she sat as the- twilight of evening
deepened into the darkness of night,
and awaited the next move of her cap-
lors, whom she knew would soon be
making a move for a start to the
soulh. **" '
When darknes shad descended
preparations were commenced for lhe
slart. She could not. discern their
actions in the darkness but, when the
word was given, "All set," the leader
approached her and loosened her
bonds. He then ordered her to mount
her hor%. The facl Ihal she was to
have her own horse to ride gave her
new hope for, having confidence in
his speed and training, she decided
Ihal if the slightest chance presented
itself tghe would make a dash for
liberty, All such hopes w%ore, however, soon dispelled by the deliberate
actions of her captor. No sooner was
she in the saddle than he proceeded
to fasten her feel to the saddle girth
with one end of the lariat. He then
pul a centre hitch on It and tied it
around the horse's neck, and, passing
the Jose end of It. through the bit

Discovered  By Doctor
Was 'Pioneer in Introducing Tobacco
In Europe
Every man who smokes owes a debt
of gratitude to Francisco Fernandes.
The commencement of the use of tobacco by civilized people has been
traced back to Its inlroduction In Europe by that celebrated physician.
Fernandes was sent by King Philip
Second of Spain to investigate the
products of Mexico. ' As a result of
his explorations Francisco Fernandes
took the tobacco plant to Europe in
155S, for tlie first lime on record. The
use of tobacco in England dales from
1586 and .the name of Sir Walter
Raleigh. Is associated with its Introduction there.
At first tlie plant was supposed to
possess almost miraculous healing
powers, and the poet Spencer called It
"divine tobacco." . Millions of people
since those days have realized that
tobacco is. "a sweetener" of their lot
in life and a.fjrcat equalizer of the
Baby's teething time is a lime of
worry and anxiety to most mothers.
The little ones become cross; peevish;
Ihelr little stomach becomes deranged
and constipation and colic set in. To
make Ihe teething period easy on baby
the stomach and bowels ihust be kept
sweet and regular.. This can be done
by the use of Baby's Own Tablets—
the ideal laxative for little ones. The
Tablets are a sure relief for all the
minor ailments of childhood sueh as
constipation, colic, indigestion, colds
and simple levers. They always do
good—never harm. The Tablets are
sold by medicine dealers or by mall at
25 cents a box from The Dr. Williams'
Medicine Co., Brockviile, Ont.

Improvement in General Tone of the

No picture of Irish life at the present lime would be true were the improvement in the general lone of the

Another great Improvement is that

When the cold mutton has lasted
so long that the housewife dreads putting it again before her family, let

"My face was Itchy and broke out

scattered all over my face and itched

About one total eclipse of tlie sun

Mr. D. Donaldson, who is in
charge of the vacant pulpit of
St. Andrew's church here as missionary, has been appointed to
the mission field of Cowley, Macleod district, Southern Albarta,
and preaches his farewell sermon in St. Andrew's on Sunday
night, Mr. Donaldson has proved signally successful in his mission here, filling the church as it
has not been filled for a long
time. He has won the appreciation of the congregation ami his
departure is deeply and sincerely
regretted by all.
Mr. Donaldson has always
been successful in his various appointments in the mission field.
His first appointment was to
Yorktown, Sask., after he had
attended Manitoba Theological
College. Thence he went to
Kenora, also in Sask. Back
from another session in Manitoba
college, he was subsequently
sent to work among the loggers
of Jordan River. V. I., p. C,
where the respect he was held in
was tangibly expressed by a gift
of $400 on his leaving. Then
Pender Island was made the field
of his labors, and afterwards
Edgewood, Arrow Lakes. In the
latter place the presentation of a
gold watch and illuminated address testified to the appreciation
of his activities. Subsequently
he worked in Ymir, 20 miles
from Nelson, whence a gift of
gold cuff links reached him here
after the war. showing that his
memory was still held in affectionate remembrance. Mr. Donaldson had also a varied military
career during the great war. He
joined up at the outbreak in Nelson with the 16th battalion of
the Canadian artillery, and afterwards transferred and finally i e-
ceived a commission in the flying
corps. Since his return he has
been three years on the G. W. V.
A. executive and zone commander in the Fraser valley. His
civil activities have been no less
varied and useful. He is president of the Pitt Meadows Board
of Trade and vice-president and
organizer of the Gun Club; also
vice-president of the Burns Club,
It is the sincere hope of the
many friends he possesses that
B.C. will see him "back again full
pledged for the ministry he seems
so eminently qualir.ed for.
Miss Sproule, of the W. C, T.
U., Vancouver, occupied the pulpit of St. Andrew's church on
Sunday night, and before a well-
filled church delivered a scathing
indictment of the government's
traffic in strong drink. Begin-
nin^ with Biblical records and
ancient drunks from Noah's fall
by the wayside, she graphically
quoted the warnings of the old
prophets and the wise King Solo
mon with great effect. She gave
startling statistics of the sales in
B.C. under government control,
equalled on the admission of the
attorney-general by thc ubiquitous bootlegger. She appealed
to the congregation to do all they
could at the plebiscite to suppress
the  hideous  trade  which  was
ruining homes and debauching
the young, by voting a bone -ry
B.C, Miss Sproule wm listened
to with rapt attention. Incidentally she congratulated Port Coquitlam on the comparatively
small drawings of the local government liquor store, and mieht
also have exonerated the citizens
further by stating that much of
the vending is done to those who
live outside the precincts of tho
city. Give the children of B.C.
a chance was the main argument
of the eloquent lady as well as in
the sentiment of St. Paul help
ing their weaker brethren Ly abstaining from indulgence in the
noxious fluids.

The Time To Gee B
Wiih the mouth of March dniwing to a close Western Canada makes
rehdy tor that annual renewal ol activities characteristic pC the country.
White all Canada is. broadly speaking, a country of seasonal occupations, this
is if specially true of the Western prairie provinces. In the East manufacturing proceeds throughout the year, bul the greatest period of activity is in the
summer. I The men who labor in the lumber mills in the summer, disappear
In the woods during the winter felling the trees to make summer operations
in the mills possible. Bul even in the Mast the coming of spring means the
beginning of real activity.
Mere in the West, with the exception of coal mining in Alberta, the coming of Spring is the signal not only for the commencement of farm operations,
but for renewed building operations, the carrying forward of municipal works)
o! nil kinds, road building, railway construction—iu a word, all those activities lo which a slop Is pul during winter weather.
ft means the opening ol\ navigation on Canada's lakes and rivers, lhe
inauguration of the immigration rush, a veritable Rip Van Winkle awakening
from the slumber of winter.
And with this great awakening at hand il behooves the people of Canada
to resolve its individuals and as a nation lo make the most of 1924, New
Year's Day may fall on January I, but Canada's real New Year's comes with
the passing of winter and Its more or less enforced idleness, and the advent
ol Spring with all its opportunities and possibilities.
The year presents itself as one full of promise.     Business conditions

in railway earnings, in the declining number of
returns, in Bank Clearing
commercial failures, in all those ihings whereby we measure tlie material
progress and welfare of a country. And ihe business barometer is'raising;
il indicates fair weather ahead.
Coupled with these favorable signs is a grim determination in evidence
in nil directions to "go easy" in the mailer of Immediately unnecessary expenditures and tlie accumulation of debt. The watchword In Canada today
is "strict economy" consistent with efficiency and service. The popular demand is not for lurtlier large public expenditures, which means more dqbt, but
retrenchment and debt reduction leading to lessened taxation.
These are all favorable symptoms iu ihe body politic. But something If
more is required lo provide Ihal added Impetus so essential lo u real revival
of productive activity throughout lit" whole Dominion. Wllh the commencement of building operations each year, there crops up lhe question of wage
schedule, hours and conditions ol labor,, etc.. etc. After a winter of idleness,
ariizsns and laborers under the direction-of their i'nion leaders, make demands lor lhe maintenance of wages al the old war-time peak. The miners
ask for il. so do tlie lumbermen, and Ihe transportation workers, and finally
the nrllzun and laborer. The nel result is Ihal building cosls are so hign
Ihal construction works of all hinds are discouraged and abandoned because
il becomes unprofitable for Ihe man wllh money io invest to proceed.
Instead of the wheels of industry beginning lo revolve and gal her momentum as Ihey should, Ihey are clogged at outset; instead of employment becoming general, another period of almost winter stagnation ensues. Valu-
a'oh time is lost anil a inonlh or more of our all too short building season is
gone before anything worth while can he accomplished.
The workers are Ihus standing in their own light and sacrificing their own
best interests. Acceptance of a somewhal lower and more reasonable wage
iu view of existing conditions would soon develop a situation where there
would hi- steady employment for nil; work would be available earlier In lhe
year and with the volume of work started would continue later in lhe Fall.
In lite long run each man would earn more in the season through Ihe additional length of time employed, while Hie number to be employed would be
vastly increased.
As a result oi the greater activity, larger sums of money would be placed
in active circulation^ alt business would bem-lti, and, because of larger turnovers hi merchants, prices of necessities lo the consumer would be lowered,
thereby giving a greater purchasing power to tin' worker's day's pay and |

rich and hold the moisture and easy
to work. A heavy clay soil can be
.improved by adding plenty of manure.
The next consideration is the preparation of the soil. This should havo
been attended lo last Full, but we will
assume that you had not then decided on making a garden, so that you
will nol fool thai you neglected an opportunity. However, as soon as lhe
frost Is out of the ground Sufficiently
Ibis spring, 1 would advise you lo have
It dug deeply With a toi'lt or simile,
and If lhe soil bo poor see that some
woll rolled manure is worked In during lite digging process.
As it Is too early (o atari work on
lhe land, I would suggest that you secure a seed catalogue front some reliable seedsman. Now you will have
an Interesting time choosing among
Ihe many different kinds of plants,
and possibly some worry, if you do not
know whal plants you want lo grow.
Lot us first consider lho hardy annuals as Ihey are lhe easiesrto grow.
Thoy require no artificial aid, such as
hotbed or greenhouse, but grow and
bloom freely in the open air. ' The
seed should be sown outdoors as soon
as lhe ground can be worked freely.
The following kinds are best for the
prairie country: Sunflower, Sweet
Peas, Centaurea or Cornflower, Marigold, Poppies, Calliopsls, Dwarf and
Climbing Nasturtiums, Phlox, Di'um-
lndfldi, Mignonette, Candytuft, California Poppy, Portulaca, Calendula and
Sweet Alyssum.
If you wisli to obtain extra early
bloom, you should sow seed of Marl-
gold, Centaurea, Nasturtium and Phlox
indoors In shallow boxes about the
middle of March. Put two or throe
inches of sandy loam in the box, sow
your seed and cover twice the thickness of the seed, pressing lhe soil
down with a board or the palm of
your haml.
When they ar.e well out of tile seed-
loaf they should be planted in other
boxes, in rows about three inches
apart to allow them room to grow and
make slrong plants. They should be
planted in their permanent places
about the middle of May.
Of the half-hardy annuals there are
several lhat you can use lo advantage
such as Aster, Flowering Tobacco
Plant, Zinnia, Slock, Verbena, Petunia,
Pyrolhrum (Golden Feather) nnd Lobelia. All of these can be raised indoors from seeds as outlined for Ihe
hardy annuals but would advise planting them outdoors a Utile later, say
about the first week in June, or when
ilangur of frost Is over.
As there, are few biennials worth
the trouble to plant, wo will nol stop
to consider them.
Passing on to the perennials, we
find many old favorites such as Gd'il-
en Clow, .Canterbury Bell, Columbine,
Bleeding Heart, Larkspur, Iris, Perennial Phlox, Pueouy, Cypsophllla,
Oriental and Iceland Poppy, Sweet
William, Pinks and Pyrolhrum
1 would not advise lo raise all of
those from seed, but rather buy the
roots or plants. There are a number,
however, lhat would nol bo difficult lo
raise from seed, but you would nol
gel much bloom the flrsl year. Perennials can be left In Ihe ground ovi
Winter, hut should be covered Willi
sllawy ltMtn.Ul'0 or other inter.
Of Hie less hardy varieties', I might
Mention the Dahlia, roots of which
may bo planted In Ihe spring, will give
a gootl show of bloom during lhe Inlo
summer, but Iho roots must bo dug
up after the first few frosts and Hlor-
ed in cellar tyer whiter, The Foxglove and Hollyhock are very desirable plants but mi' not hardy enough
Mo stand a severe winter.
i We will assume now lhat planllng
has arrived and thai you are going to
start on your mixed flower border. I
would advise you to'start In a small
way and gradually Increase as you become familiar with plants and Ihelr
requirements. For a start you could
have a border from 5 lo 10 feel, wide
and from J!0 to 30 feel long, or oven
less, It depends on the lime and
money you wisli to spend on it.

Mars? li has been known to astl'on-
omers that next August the red plane!
will be nearer to us than ever in th-
pasi fifteen years. During this time
science has been busily perfecting instruments for commuulcnllng with
iUnrs, nnd from time to time an*
noun cements have been made of in
tended attempts.
The greatest of all attempts to reach
Mars will be made by a series of lighl
fiflshes from the summit of the Jung
frau. Jn the Swiss Alps.
A gigantic etectro-heliographing apparatus is already being installed,
which will concentrate the rays from
the dazzling snow fields and hurl them
in a super-searclllight beam millions
of miles through interstellar space.
ll is the same idea as the headlight
of a motor car. This consists of a
glass lens concentrating the beams,
an electric bulb and a concave mirror
to serve as a reflector.
The idea of light communication"
with Mars has often been suggested.
It was considered possible to get the
necessary amount of light and to concentrate it, but the problem lias always been how to make'a gigantic
mirror miles square, suIHciently powerful to reflect tne rays millions ol
miles through ihe air.
Ou the Jungfrau th6 question is
solved. A neighboring mountain
presents an enormous concave slope
ot shining snow. Innumerable greal
calcium flares will lake the place of
the electric bulb in the motor headlight, and a huge double lens*capable
of being pointed like a cannon will be
set on tlie topmost peak to throw the
rays against the snow-reflector, and
so up through space to'Mar's. Tph
thousand giant calcium flares, and a
reflector more than three miles iu
diameter, will develop a light roughly
estimated at two million billion can-
It is with this light that science
hopes to traverse tlie 35,000,000 miles
that, will separate us from Mars in
August next. Will the Martians (assuming intelligent life exists on thai
planet) receive and understand our
signals? Then will they flash us back
a reply?
Some years ago watching astronomers delected what seemed to be a
series of light flashes on the planet
Since then astronomers huve watched with even greater care the geometric lines lhat. are by some thought
to be canals, and by others-lines ol
vegetation. These change in color
as the seasons pass, from red lo yellow, and to brown, in the same way
as our own landscapiv'-'hi'nKes. if
these changes indicate tlie existence
ot' vegetable life on Mars, human life
is only one step further.
Mars Is older than the earth, and its
Inhabitants, if lliere be any, have had'
some millions of years longer to develop.
This Is the system that will probably   be used  from  tin;  Alps.      Two
lighl [lashes a i'<\v seconds apart,
then another two; then, after a
pause, imir Hashes. If there are
Muriians lo catch the signal, Ihey will
realize lhat reason is behind them.
Perhaps they will answer in the same
way. If their answer is sent hack
immediately lhe whole thing would
lake less than seven minutes, for light
travels 186,000 miles per second.
No less Important than the sending
of lhe message is the catching of a
possible reply.

Canada will play an Important part in the first World
Power Conference that la to be held In London,
England, from June 80th to July 12th, and thla because
after the United States, she possesses greater potential
water powers than any other country and because in
point of per capita production of electric power ahe
stands almost at the head of all nations, her production,
in this respect being three times greater than that of the
United States.
Thla Is rapidly becoming the electric age, a fact which
the impending Conference, which is being held under the
auspices of the British Electrical and Allied Manufacturers Association in co-operation with several of
the most technical, scientific and industrial Institutions
throughout tho World, emphasizes greatly. The Canadian committee consists of tho leading members of the
electrical engineering profession with Dr. Charlea Cam-
Bell, deputy Minister of Mines aa chairman.
So far aa Canada ia concerned the hydro-electric
development is a twentieth century development.   A
Starter of a century ago there was very little hydro-
ectrlc development in Canada. In 1910 the turbine
installation of water power plants in Canada waa but
966,000 h.p.; in 1916 it was 2,078,000 h.p.; in 1920 it was
2,483,000 h.p.; in 1923 it was 3,228,000 h.p. Next year
it ia expected to be 4,000,000 h.p., tho indications being
that 6,000,000 h.p. will be reached by 1930.
Canada is very fortunate in that her large water
powera are located comparatively close to the centres
of her industrial life. When it comes to ability to use
her water powers she is immeasurably better off than the
United States, 70 per cent of the latter* being in the
Western states, remote from industrial centres. Within

development of water power that other operations ara
made cheaper, capital for it can be more readily secured,
and it is for this reason that the power producing industry
has progressed more rapidly than any other in Canada
during the past few years.
Briefly, the objects of the Power Conference are to
consider how the industrial and 'Scientific sources of
power may be adjusted nationally and internationally;
by considering the potential resources of each country
in hydro-electric power, oil and minerals, by comparing
experiences in the development of scientific agriculture,
irrigation and transportation by land water and air;
