Tho Provincial Party hold a meeting on .June 10 lu ihe Agricultural
hall, which was well attended tn
spite of the rain.
The speakers woi'S Mr. .T, s. Pagan,
candidate foi* Vale constituency ; Mr.
H. 1*3. Molson, of Vancouver; ami Mr.
O. O. Buchanan, «f New Westminster.
The chair wiih occupied, hy Mr. H. D.
Sutherland,  of Agassis.
Mr. Pagan spoke briefly and to the
point, explaining his platform find
staling Hint lie was not accuHtnmcd
to speaking on the public platform,
though ho hail been mixed up in poll-
tloa for tlie past 35 years. Ho touched
on the amount of thc public debt and
said lie believed thut economy should
be practised,
Mr. Fagnu stated that as far ns
General MoRae was concerned, lie did
not want the office, and was willing
ut any time, if the public were not
satisfied, to step down to allow another to take his place. He said !f
he. (Genl. McRae) were elected, he
would endeavor to carry to completion
any so-called political schefes started, In his power, that were of benefit
to  the  country.
Mr. Molson then spoke at somo
length, explaining that it was not the
policy of the Provinilal Party to go
into personalities, but, in this particular case, he was driven to defend
G-en. McRae, and in o:der to do so
he had written headquarters and had
got the General's war record, wh Ich
he read to the audience, and, In face
of that, said Mr, Molson, It hardly
behooves Mr. Oliver to attack him as
he did when he had so many sons
who did not go to tht front.      ,
Mr. Buchanan spoke at length of
his long experience In political mat*
Te chairman then asked for questions, at which Mr. Wolf Jones, a
student at the B.C. University, asked
Mr. Molson to explain why be objected to the expense of the University, and Mr, Molson replied that be
bad been misunderstood. He was
merely referring to the expense of
clearing land around the Uniersity
with a view to selling real estate, and
he thought the Government should
not interfere with the real estate business in that way.
An amusing incident occurred at the
close of the meeting, A Mr. McKor-
mas, who' had good-naturedly interrupted the speakers on several occasions, was asked to come up on thc
platform and address the audience. So
he gave them a recitation of a French
Canadian politician addressing a meet
ing In English, which brought down
the house.

What might hnve been a serious
accident occurred when Herb Bailey
ran into the rear, end of Mr. V, Has-
lam's car (from Harrison Hot Springs)
which was parked on the wrong side
of the rond neai* the Post Office.
Both  cars  were  badly  damaged.
It appears that Mr. Haslam had
parked his ca:t near the Post Office
on the left hand side of the street
facing West—a common practice with
many people for some time past.
Suddenly Herb Bailey, driving a new
Sedan car, came down tho street, going west, and, for some reason unknown, turned suddenly to the left
and struck tho rear end of Mr. Has-
tam'a car, breaking two tires and doing some damage to the mud guards.
Fortunately the brakes were not set
on Mr. HoKlnin's ear, or more damage wuul have insulted, Tlie Impact
was so great that It knocked thc big
car somo distance, There wero two
children In tho car at the time ,who
were gadly shaken up. The two were

The Women'^ Institute enjoyed a
wonderful lecture by Mrs. Todd, of

Mrs. Todd's 132nd lecture since beginning  the  campaign.

Mrs. Todd also related .some very interesting* experiences of her  trip.
She could not say enough abou t
tlie wonderful work done by the
"Women's Institutes throughout thc
Province. A few of the many points
proved In favon of buying B.C. pro-
products :       ,       ,
(1) Every dollar spent for home

(2) If you buy tbe foreign article
you are helping to build up the communities)   in  foreign countries.
(3) B.C. imports millions of pounds
of fruits and vegetables annually
from foreign countries, These importations rob B.C. farmers, can
makers, printers, paper and bos manu
facturers, and wire nail makers, of
their sales, and actually provide wages
for thousands of foreign workers.
British Columbia needs this addition
to   her  payroll.
(4) B.C. made candy contributes to
the prosperity of the farmer. Thousands of gallons of cream are used
each  year  In  tbe  candy  factories.
In conclusion Mrs. Todd sang seve-

Apart from ilif facl Ihal their late

them. Unconscious oC Ihelr surroundings anil the nttention they were
attracting, they seemed to enjoy in the
ml] every moment of the time, and the
hand clapping thnl followed was for
them, as he led her to a seat, This
was as embarrassing to them as It
was surprising, though she modestly
acknowledged the ovation Willi a smiling bow. For, knowing well herself
tho art ul' (lancing, she was not slow
in appreciating his skill in Ihe art, and
she knew full well the pleasure the
spectators would have in seeing a perfect demonstration of the ever favorite waltz. To Ronald the enjoyment
was so great lhat he fell he could not
participate rurlher in the evening's
enjoyment, so ho wandered aimlessly
around, sllll living over again the delightful moments of that waltz.
Shortly afterwards, when he had
gone out to enjoy the cool breeze of
the evening, Ronald overheard a conversation between a group of men
thai worried him exceedingly, in
fact the theme of the conversation
came with such a shock lhat it almost
threatened to upset all Ms future plans
and happiness. It, naturally, was a
conversation regarding Miss Fraser,
and with whom the name of Sergt.
Melvin was coupled, What particularly disturbed him was lhe statement
made by one of tlie men who remarked that, he had heard that the sergeant
and Miss Fraser were engaged and
were to be married soon.
Completely dazed by this news,
Ronald turned away from the vicinity
. ol' tin.1 group and aimlessly directed
his steps inwards the lake shore. All
his Interest in tlie pleasure nf the
evening seemed in have suddenly vanished. Continuing his walk along
ihe lake shore, a depressing feeling
ol loneliness overcame him. lie felt
forsaken and alone. Heedless of the
passing of time, anil conscious of only
one irreconcilable thought, and that
thought, ihal lhe woman he loved was
sunn in become tlie wife nf another
man, lie walked on Indlfferenl as io
direction and distance, in cool (lie
fever or his agitated emotions. A
few moments ago she was in his arms
wiih her sweel scented breath fanning

since spent together, marred only by
the unwelcomed advent and marked
attentions shown to her by Sergt. Melvin. Overpowering the feeling nf
bitterness for his successful rival,
was a disconsolate reeling o\' depression at tin- thought that the woman he
had learned lo love was losl in him
for ever.
Tlie flrsl streaks of dawn were commencing to illumine tho norlhensLern
sky when Ronald rose rrom his deep
contemplation of the trouble that had
overtaken him, Now all signs of the
agitation that had furrowed his regular featured and strong countenance
when he came Ihere were gone. Mis

baflle against lhe racking emotions

greeted him with a wave of her hand
and a pleasant smile, which he barely noticed as he passed on inlo the
house. The last dance, o quadrille,
was in progress as he entered, and.
standing to one "side, he watched it
to the end. Mary, noticing his curt

rather slighted, but soon followed him

There Is hardly a girl or boy that

and take up space in cupboards until
your mother simply gives them away

Houses are like that, too. 1 roomed once in a very beautiful home, but

like a lot of old clothes in a cupboard,

The soldier knows lhat, and he just
carries around what he can use, and
the kit bag is where he keeps them.
It is a very fine thing lo be able to
carry useful things around with us.

Figures issued by the Dominion
Bureau of Statistics show that one-,

up of forest products.
Last year the railways carried
well ovor 2,000,000 tons of lumber,
ehlngles and other wood products

At a low estimate the amount
paid in freight exceeded $25,000,-

±'he growing importance of Canada's trade in the Pacific is reflected
in the official statistics of the Vancouver Harbor Board for the month
of December, 1923, which shows a
substantial increase in shipping in
that port over the same month in
1922. Total shipping through the
port amounted to 434,432 tons,
valued at $31,421,129, an increase
over December, 1922, of 122,602 in
tonnage and $2,703,078, in value.

The annual
statement of the
Canadian Pacific
Railway and the
report which the
company's president, E. W: Beat-
ty, made to the
shareholders at
the annual meeting are matters
of first rate interest, not only to
the fast growing
number of Canadian citizens who
aro part owners
in the great rail-
* w. Bnttr, K.C r01Mi, but to all
interested in Canadian progress and
development. By reason of tho way
in which tho company's operations
touch all phases of Canadian life
and enterprise there can bo no pronounced depression or prosperity in
any part of the country without Its
being reflected In the earnings of
the Canadian Pacific. There is a
barometer of tho country's foreign
trade also In thc results of the operations of the company's steamships'
upon the Atlantic and Pacific oceans..
Thus there was considerable rea-'
ton for gratification In the presi-!
dent's statement made at the annual
meeting on May 7th, that the opera-;
tions of the company had been eon-!
ducted throughout 1923 in a satis-i
factory manner and with satisfactory!
results. Mr. Beatty pointed out that!
gross earnings for the year, which!
had totalled $195,887,089, were
greater by $9,162,000 than those of
1923, Working expenses, however,
increased by $7,984,000 to $158,358,.;
079. This large increase in operating costs was due to large expend!-!
tures made upon the property in:
order that it might be kept to thej
highest possible physical standard:
and capable of rendering the best-
possible service to the community.!
As a result the property was sever
in so excellent a condition as it
now is. Net earnings for the year
were $37,479,010. an increase of
The total tonnage moved by the
company during the year amounted
to 30,852,994, an increase over that
of the previous year of 8,108,408,
due to a heavier movement of grain.:
lumber, manufactured articles and
general merchandise, the largest
increase being in grain and grain
products. Mr. Beatty pointed out
that this satisfactory condition had
extended well into the present year
and that due to favorable operating
conditions and heavy traffic net
earnings for the first quarter of 1924
had increased over those of the
eame period last year by $1,253,814,
Referring to the Government system of railroads, Mr. Beatty said
that the difference between it and
the Canadian Pacific was largely in;
name only and in the accident of
personnel of shareholders. The
securities of both systems were owned by private investors throughout'
the world and there was a significant steady increase in both Canadian and British holdings of Canadian Pacific common stock, Two
phases of the general railway situation called for criticism. Under a
statute passed in 1919 the Govern-!
ment-owned lines may --construct!
branches without approval as to
location and other details by the I
Railway Commission. Thus they
may parallel or duplicate existing
lines of any other company once the
Minister approves and parliament
authorizes the expenditure, Mr.i
Beatty stated that in his opinion it
was equally in the interests of the
Canadian people and of all Canadian railroads that the companies
should be in the same position in
this respect, The other phase was
the result of the Crow's Nest Pass
agreement of 1897. It had established special statuary freight rates
under conditions of operating costs
which no longer exist and differences in rates which would not bo
permitted under the general Railway
Act because of their unfairness in
relation to commodity rates on other
articles and to the rates effective,
in other parts of Canada. Tlio
greatest advantage to shippers as
a whole would bo sceurod If nil ratos
were made subject to review and
change as conditions warrant by
tho tribunal constituted for that
In referring 'o *ho outlook for
tho future, Mr. Ilentty said that
while there waa a noticeable lull in
domestic and export shipments due
In part to unsettlement In Industrial
districts, general business during tho
firot quarter of thc year had boen
satisfactory. The crop acreage
would probubly be about the same
as Inst year and, genurnlly speaking, soil conditions were excellent.
"If the total yield approaches that
of 1923," said Mr. Beatty, "there
will undoubtedly be a very extensive
autumn business and a vastly improved psychological and financial
situation throughout the whole country. Thero Is no real ground for
possimiem in respect of the future
at either the company or the country, though an extraordinary and
too rapid advance Is neither to be
expected nor desired."     ' j

British Columbia's agricultural
production last year increased in
value $4,000,000 over the 1922 period,
figures compiled by the provincial
Department   of   Agriculture   show.
A steady increase in the volume
of wheat exports from Canada is
noted in the monthly statement just
Issued by the Dominion Bureau of
Statistics. In April, 1924, 6,086,465
bushels in all were exported, as
against 6,148,804 in April, 1928.
It is anticipated that hundreds and
thousands of visitors to the beautiful Annapolis Valley, Nova Scotia,
will help to celebrate the famous
fruit-district's "Apple Blossom Sunday," which falls on June 8th this
year. The entire orchard belt, extending from Annapolis Royal to
Windsor, a distance of about 80
miles, is always white and pink
with blossom in the first part of
Hon. Honore Meroier, Minister of
Lands and Forests, speaking of arrangements made in the province for
forest protection this year, stated:
"I really believe that the way tht
service Is organized and with the
good-will manifested by all classes
of the community, who realise the
importance of protecting your national domain, the year will be A
good one and the losses reduced to
a minimum."
The report of the statistician to
the board of grain commissioners
for April, recently issued, records
the heaviest spring great lakes shipping season on record. The report
says that there are Indications that
all tlie surplus of ths western crops
will be moved as fast as transportation facilities permit, as export purchases are to be heavier than usual
and all ocean tonnage out of Montreal for May and June has already
been engaged, as well as part for
tht July loading.
Something new in the way of railway equipment is the new storage
battery car now operating over
Canadian Pacific lines between Gait
and Hamilton. The car attains a
speed of 85 miles per hour and
makes two trips a day in each direction. It has three compartments.
Seneral, passenger, smoking and
sggage, is of all-steel construction
and will accommodate 50 passengers.
The service is reported to be giving
•very satisfaction to the people of
the district.
Interviewed in Vancouver as to
the success of the round-the-world
cruise completed on May 24th by the
"Empress of Canada," E. W. Beatty,
"To gauge the success of the
'Empress of Canada's' round-the-
world cruise one has only to ask the
passengers their opinion of the entire trip. I spoke to several while
crossing from Victoria and without
exception they all expressed their
complete satisfaction with the ship,
its officers and the arrangements
made and carried out since the day
she left Vancouver, almost five
months ago.
"That is good enough for me. It
is simple demonstration that the
Canadian Pacific can successfully
conduct cruises in competition with
any organization in the world and
maintain that company's standing
as a credit to Canada. The "Empress of Canada" has carried the
Canadian flag over the seven seas
and into most of the world's great
ports, and the missionary work she
has done for Canada in the various
countries touched should not be lost
sight of. As one result of the undoubted success of this cruise, we
look forward with renewed, interest
to the Canadian Pacific cruises of
next season. They include thc West
Indies, tho Mediterranean and another round-the-world cruise which
will be made hy tho "Empress of
France," already overhauled and fitted with a view to providing the
greatest possible comfort for her
passengers. Thc experience gained
this year will greatly help Tn enabling us to make those cruises even
more successful than those recently
completed."       '

Tfio people ni Western Canada are strongly in favor ot the completion
of tin' Hudson's liny Railway and lho opening of what lias been termed tho
rntiii' "over the roof nf lho world" lor prairie grown grain, cattle and other
products to Iho markets ot Greal Britain. Millions of dollars have already
boon spout and a low millions moro will carry tho rails lo lldewater. Hut
while Western people favor the completion of the road and proving lho feasibility and practicability ol tho route, their voice has boon largely Inarticulate
In making tholr demand effective in the face or strong Eastern opposition.
Steps nro now being taken ihrough tin' organization of ihe "On-to-lho-
Bay" Association, with branches in every section ol the West, to so organize
-exisllng public opinion Ihal iis voice may be hoard insistently and loud, and
pressure brought to bear on Iho Federal Parliament to vote the necessary appropriation for tho completion ot Ihe railway. Thero should nol be the
slightest hesitation on the purl of prairie dwellers to join the "On-to-the-Bay"
Association; on the contrary, their support should be unanimous and enthusiastic.
Objection is raised in tin* Mast that the Hudson's Bay mule is dangerous; hut Iho St. Lawrence route to Montreal Is notoriously one ol the most
difficult and dangerous in the world, yel it has been made a success until
Montreal is now one of the great ports of the world. It is rurlher objected
that continual dredging at ihe Bus ports will be necessary; but everybody
knows that this Is equally true in the St. Lawrence. It is argued by opponents that ice in tho Hudson's Straits will prove tin insurmountable obstacle;
but the ice is just as big off the Straits of Belle tsle and Capo Race, and in
addition Ihe Lower St. Lawrence route suffers from logs which mako tlio Ice
doubly dangerous, where as the Hudson's Bay is Iree from fogs. Finally,
it is objected Unit tho ports on tho Bay are not natural harbors; but many
of tho grenl harbors of the world are not so by nature, including Montreal
nail Dover.
With dillicullies to bo overcome no greater than those contended against
successfully iu making Monlreal a great port, thero is the decided advantage
from tho Western standpoint that tlio Hudson's Bay route from tlie heart of
the wheat growing prairies lo Liverpool is .1.00U miles shorter than it is by
way of Montreal, which moans lhe saving of an expensive rail haul of that
(inly ninety-two miles of steel remain to be laid to bring the Hudson's
Bay railway lo ihe sea. A woll organized and insistent demand by the ever-
Increasing political power of the Wesl can bring about the realization of the
long cherished ambition of the prairies for their own outlet to the sea and the
shortest of all routes lo Ihe markets of Iho world. This is nol: a political
question In a partisan sense. Every political parly In Canada lias declared
in favor of the building tlie railway. It can never be made a party football
as far ns Western poople are concerned, but the political group which proceeds lo lullill its promise io lhe Wesl regarding Ibis vitally important mallet is hound to gala substantial support as a result.
However, It is not the fortunes of political pantos which are paramount
or at stake; il is tlio economic welfare and prosperity of the whole of West-
era Canada that is Involved, and bound up with the prosperity and development of tlie West Is the future ol' Hie whole Dominion. II is nol party loyalty
bul nationaljmtrlotlsm which urges immediate action; 11 is nol sectional interests but national interests which call for Parliament's consideration without further delay.
While Eastern opposition is publicly bused on objections to tho feasibility
of the Hudson's Bay route, anil through a professed desire nol lo squander
public money on a scheme which they declare must eud In failure, the all loo
apparent fact ls that this opposition arises Ihrough selfish fears Ihal lhe
route will prove such a success as to divert the enormous tralllc now [lowing
ironi the West through the Great Lakes io Montreal in summer and by Ihe all-
rail haul lo tho Atlantic seaports in winter.
That llils Is lhe real reason Is lo some extent proven by Iho fact Ihal the
natiiiiii Government is steadily cxtendlug its own Northern Ontario railway
towards its fixed terminus on .lames Hay, the SOUtliermosf part of Hudson's
Bay. Ontario does nol propose io be caught napping with the opening of the
Hudson's Bay route, and Hie completion of the Western road lo Iho Day
would nlmosl certainly be quickly followed by Hie rushing of iho Ontario lino
lo .lames Hay.
And whatever diversion of Western tralllc from Eastern ports mlghl re-
sail would he more lhan offset by lho Increased prosperity, sellleinent und
development ot Western Canada, 1'osulllng lu a largely Increased market
ter Eastern goods Ihroughoul Hn* whole prairie country.
Lot II lie repealed, therefore, lhat the Hudson's Bay railway Is nol solely a
sectional policy designed in bcn'ofll lhe West I the Wesl only.     Primarily
li i.- designed to do that, Inn in iis ultimate effects It will beneili all Canada

Farm Instruction In Canada Is
Important Work Or Federal
And Provincial Governments
With an agricultural population
amounting to practical!*, one-half of
the total for ihe Dominion, farm instruction constitutes one of the most
important phases of the work ol ihe
provincial and federal governments.
The problem of disseminating information on tills vital subject Is more or
less complex, owing io the immensity
of the counliy and the number of
widely scalletvd farms.
Probably (lie best distributors of agricultural knowledge are lhe demon-
si ration farms op ■•rated by lhe Federal
Government and located in all provinces ol ihe Dominion. These farms
are operated along practical farming
lines. A large amount of experimental work is carried on and efforts are
made to ascertain the best crops most
suitable for iho district in which the
farm is located. By carrying oul
these experiments, millions of dollars
are annually saved Lho farmers.
Intensive agricultural training is
taken care ot in a capable and effl-
! cient manner by the large number of
agricultural colleges located In the
various provinces, chief of which are
MacDonald, Quebec, Ontario and Manitoba   Agricultural   Colleges.      The
1 provinces of Saskatchewan and Alberta each has a provincial university.
| Alberta has six agricultural schools
and Ontario one. Canada has some
of the finest agricultural institutions
in lhe world, and graduates from these
' are in demand from many foreign
In the past tew years the railways,
in conjunction with the provincial and

K have proven very popular, The trains stop at all Import-
ani agricultural centres, and lectures
an- given by experts, as well as moving pictures shown and literature dls-
Irlbuled, The popularity oi these
trains may be judged from the fact
that In 192.! between 100,000 and 200,-
ono people visited the Quebec train.
Other media ol farm instruction,
which have an Important Influence on
Canada's farming community, are
the annual exhibitions. It is here
that the fanner has an opportunity
of seeing all the latest developments
along fanning lines, ns well as viewing the exhibits of prize grains, fodders and entile. In Western Canada
almost every town and city holds an
annual fair, the exhibitions al Calgary,
Edmonton, Regina, Saskatoon and
Brandon being of an unusually high
calibre. The east ls also well supplied wllh fairs, Uie Canadian Nalional Exhibition at Toronto being the
largest annual exposition In lho world,
and the Royal Agricultural Fair and
livestock event of the year in Canada.
Where the farmer is unable to attend the annual fair in his district or
visit the better funning trains, the
governments aid him by the distribution of bulletins on every conceivable
agricultural subject. These bulletins,
which are distributed free of charge,
are written by qualified experts nnd
have been of material aid to tlie fanner in solving ids agricultural problems.
To carry on Iho work of farm instruction millions of dollars are spent
annually by provincial governments,
During the fiscal year 1922-23, iho
Federal Government paid to Ihe provincial governments a total of $l,osn,-
003, which was distributed by provinces as follows: Ontario, $386,303;
Quebec, $271,113; Saskatchewan, JSI,-
72S; Nova Scotia, $81,716; Manitoba,
$77,113; British Columbia, $69,199; Alberta, $66,965; New Brunswick. $111,-
110; and Prince Edward Island, $31.-
7-19. In addition, the provincial gov
ernments expend largo sums of money
on this work—in many instances in
excess of the grant received from the
Dominion Government,
Farm instruction, as carried oul by .
the different governments, has enabled lhe farmer to cultivate his land
on a more scientific basis, raise the
crops best suited to his particular
locality, and thus Increase his crop
yield and secure for him greater returns on his labor and capital Investment The resulls of this work are
becoming more and more apparent
each year, and the splendid agricultural showing made hy Canada In recent
years Is attributable, In a large measure, to the farm Instruction programme of lhe governments.

Electro-plating a Canadian Railway Operation
FhotolTSBlu  ahowtaf electro-plating  operations at tbe Angus Shops, Montreal.    No. 1 slum* (he tunics in which smnU articles ore bung for placing, and No. 5 the Lacquering process.     'I'll'.1 text below explains the other photograph* fully.
Passengers on the Trans-Canada and other Canadian trains have often
admired tbe tableware with which the dining cars are equipped, but
comparatively few of the travelling public appreciate the extent to which
electro-plating enters Into every day use on a Railway. As a matter of
fact, practically all metal hardware parts of passenger equipment interiors are plated, many of the engine parts, including the copper reflector of the head-light are plated, and various platings are used on a
thousand and one articles which enter daily Into the life of a railroader.
The traveller notices the sliver plate perhaps more than any other,
but many metals are used by the railroad companies. Gold, for instance. Is used by the Canadian Pacific for plating pepper caster tops
and similar articles, copper ls used on lighting and other metal car fixtures, zinc on refrigerator hardware, nickel on kitchen utensils, tin on
trainmen's lanterns, mercury on telegraph elements and aluminum or
lead on miscellaneous articles.
At Its Angus Shops, Montreal, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
has quite an extensive plant where the most of its electro-plating Is carried on. The method used by this Company is a simple one but none the
less effective.
The articles to be plated are-first chemically cleaned, after which
they are usually hung from a metal bar Into a long vat where they are
Immersed In a ehemlcal solution which varies with the metal to be deposited. The electric current, which ls of low voltage, ls connected, the
positive pole to the metal plate or plates, and the negative to the bar
'rom which the articles to be plated are suspended.  Am the eleotrle cur
rent flows from tho plating metal to the suspended artlclesi the metal to
carried through the solution and deposited in the form of a thin coating:
over the entire surface of the required article.
This process is ftell Illustrated In Nn. 2, which shows two electric
headlight reflectors In tne process of receiving silver plating. In this
case the plate of sliver ls suspended in the centre of the reflector, which
Is filled with cyanide of potassium solution, and the electric current flows
from the plate to the reflector which Is, Itself, the negative pole.
Illustration No. 3 shows the next step In the treatment of the headlight reflector, which, by tbe way, gives the highest concentration of light
known. This is hand burnishing, thc operator burnishing two reflectory
in a working day. For articles which can be readily polished by a
rotating buffing wheel, this ls accomplished In the manner shown In No. 4.
Upon completion of tbe polishing operation, articles to be so treated are
placed In a metal container and, by means of a small compressed air gun,
sprayed with suitable lacquer. If It is desired to oxidise the plated
article in order to make it harmonize with woodwork or other material,
as is often the case with copper platings, It ls exposed to heat or vapor,
or Immersed in some solution prior to tbe application of the flnishlng
coat of lacquer.
The Canadian Pacific Hallway Company was the first largo corporation in Canada to instal its own electro-plating plant but during the In,
few years' this method ot protecting metal from oxidation has develc
