On Saturday, August IGth, our
special correspondent visited the
inueh-talked-of automobile rond
over the mountain between- Agassiz
and Harrison Mills, wllle.ll will connect up with tho road from Vancouver, *
Certain parties havo worked hard
to try and persuadi tho Government
to build this road to give the settlers in Kent municipality a very
■much needed outlet to Vancouver
nnd other points, but so f'ir have not
li-cii successful until u recent date-.
It has always been understood that
tills road would be a much more ex-
fiensivo proposition than it is prov-
ng to bo, On tho East side of thc
mountain thero is nboul throo-quar-
tors of a mile of roo'tcut whioh In
very heavy work, tho worst of which
■not been completed at approximately
$r>,000, which includes bunk houses
for the men, that part of thc work
which has been completed is of a
vory permanent nature nnd Is on n
10 per cent, grade,
The first thing thut strikes one on
visiting tho work is the thoroughly
efficient manner in which the work
has been carried out, showing that
the men in chargn nre of long ox-
lerience    in    mutters of this kind.
.'he foreman, Mr, D, A, Gunn, of
Westminster, hns been in the employ of the Government on similar
work for about twenty years, Mr.
A. S. Duckett, of New Westminster,
is the engineer stationed on the job,
and is living with his wife and
■laughter in Jlmmie Hogg's house,
near by. Mr. Mnnnering nnd Mr.
Purvis, engineers from New West,
minster have visited the work on
several occasions in consultation
with Mr, Duckett. Mr. Mark Rutherford, of Chiliiwack, is timekeeper
and first aid. So far there has been
only tw,o accidents on the job, one
which hns been mentioned in print
before, when Mr. A. Berry got into

The  Canadian Senate
The much debated question of reform of lhe Senate of Canada is at long
last to be removed from the realm of academic discussion Into the- arena of
prncllctil politics, it it e'oiiid evti!.'.' be' removed at the same time1 from partisan
disputation this country wouid be? lliti gainer.
Prior to ilie recent prorogation bt.Parliament, Premier King announced
that in lite next jession the Government would introduce legislation having
i'or its objnci un apfeal to tho British Parliament to so amend the British North
America Art as 10 confer on Um House of Commons of Cumula the suniei
measure' o£ author!!} nnd control over legislation Initiated by Hint body as Is
now enjoyed b\ 'the British House' of Commons.
Like Hu Canadian Senate, lho House of Lords had a habit of "killing"
measures pnssed hy tlio Commous anel se-nt to tlie Lords for their approval.
Year after year the Lords lind minified the efforts of tlio Government of which
Lloyd Gouge was a member, untl finally tlu1 conse'nt of theTrown wns ob-
talned to n measure which provides that if a Hill pusses the Commons three
liine-s within a pt-iiod of not. le-ss than two years, It. becomes law whether the?
Lords puss it or nol. Since the passage1 of this Act, Uie House of Lords bus
not wielded tlie axe ns formerly.
Premier Kins proposes lhat lhe British Parliament shut! confer on the
Canadian lleuse of Commons tlie snine authority ns i.s now enjoyed by the
British House of Commons. In other words, if u Bill pusses tlie- Canadian
Commons al three consecutive sessions lho Senate shall be powerless to pre-
vi'iit it becoming the law of tlie- Dominion.
It will be seen, therefore, thnt the proposal Is not so much one of reform
of tlie Senate as a curtailment of the veto powers of that botly.
Tlie Government has been forced to action by the rising tide of public
opinion ngainst the autocratic aclion of the Senate in "killing" legislation
desired by n large majority of the people. This year, for a second lime, the
Senate destroyed the branch lines programme of tlie Cunadiitn National Iluil-
ways und deprived thousands of Western settlers of urgently needed means
of transportation. In Ilk manner the Senate vetoed tlie legislation providing
for tlie distribution of the canteen .funds belonging, not to Canada, but to
Canada's ex-service men. The Senate also over-rode the recommendations
of tin' Ralston Commission, a Parliamentary Committee and tlie unanimous
decision of lhe House of Commons to make the soldiers' bonus permanent,
ami in other ways mutilated legislation designed to assist Canada's returned
Inasmuch ns Hip Canadian Senate- is wholly nnd absolutely beyond the
control ot the people, anel Is probably the most undemocratic legislative body
in tin- world today, showing an almost complete disregard for the wishes of
Hie people, it lins become an imperative necessity that, if it is to continue
to exist, Its arbitrary usi of the veto power slinll be restricted.
While il Is a Liberal Government in Canada, as It was a Liberal Govern-
. me-nl In Greal Britain, which Is moving to curtail the vetopowe-r of the Upper
Chamber, such action sliouiti not be made a party question nor a pnrlizun
' issue'. The Senate litis mutilated nnd killed legislation pnssed by Hie Commons on Hte Initiative "f both Liberal and Conservative Governments, nnd the
party in opposition today may be the victim of the irresponsibility of the
Senate tomorrow.
in u democratic country like Canada, the elected representatives of the
people must govern, and, unless some reasonable guarantee is provided that
lhe people's will shall ptc-vall, the people will eventually wipe the Second
Chamber out of existence.
Tlie Senale was designed lo provide n chock, n safeguard, against hasty
li gislaiion by lhe Commons on a wave of popular but passing eiithusnlsm, and
lo protect minorities against any aggression or Injustice by the majority.
Dim It was never Intended that the Senate should usurp tin' right of nullifying
lhe u'h'i'e policy of ihe Commons and ihe Government of Hie country.
Tin- proposal Ihal legislation shall become effective If il pusses the House
of Commons three limes is safe anil sane. It provides adequate opporlun-
iij lor the fooling of Hi.? country to be tested. If public opinion does not
support tin' Commons, Hint fact will be nitfde manifest, nnd the legislation
will be dropped or satisfactorily amended. Hut if In three sessions the
elected representatives ol tho people record their approval ot tiny Bill, It Is
fairly inl'i- to assume Ihu' it represents Hie wlll of lhe people nnd should be-
ci ill'octlve,    Ami no non-elected, life-appointed botly should be allowed
lo prevent It. *
Distance Needed To
Stop Motor Cars
Table of Figures That Should Be
Memorized By Drivers
Every motor-driver should know exr
actly the minimum distance within
which u ear can be stopped whe-n it Is
I ravelling at different rates of speed,
And lie1 should never forget that the
I'titio between the distance within
which It can he> slopped and the rule
of speeel at which it is going Increases
With I ho rate of speed. Thus, when
the car is going at Ihe rule of 30 miles
nn hour, Hie distance it must, go be>-
fore it can be slopped is much great-
er than double Hie distance when It
is going ut the rate of 15 miles.
IE this fact were known and always
remembered, there would be fewer

Declared To Be Most
Favorable For Settlement
The country to and around the lluel-
son Buy ls supposed to be barren, bul
this is an ordinary fallacy of those
who cannot eBtlnuUe the resources of
a new country. Mr, E. Mosher, ot
Halifax, was at Churchill from September 2 lo January 7, superintending
the' building ol the barracks for the
Itoyul Northwest Mounted Police. "So

ln Churchill us lu Halifax, He "did
not duel the cold nny more severe1 tiiun
In Hie east." According to Ids observations, "Hie lowest teinpi'i'iiiui'i1 registered wus 39 he'low zero."
The Rev. Dr. Jeihn MoDougall, pioneer missionary, describes the country south of split Lake as favorable
for settlelWbt, Hie growth of vegetation almost tropical, und "the climate
is lur moro moderate thttn in Southern Maultoba, lhe home oE No. 1 hard

Jtinie's ltobson, who superintended
the building ol Fort Prince of Wales
al the mouth of Churchill Harbor, after live years of residence, writes in
.'752: "The marshes nnd low ground
are full of geioti gruss. and there Is a
patch of ground near Eskimaux Point
which though exposed to the north
and northeast, produces good radishes,
colewort, turnips, small carrots and
lettuces and other satadlng; blackberries also grow upon lite heath.
. . The cattle here would live
and do well if the same care was taken of them as is generally taken of
them in England. The.horses . . .
had been kept fc; several years and
were constantly employed in drawing
stone and other material for Hie fort."
Dr. Bell, nearly a century and a half
later, saw some very good potatoes
and turnips growing at Churchill. He
observed an abundance of hay in iho
neighborhood, nnd near the buy open
grassy land of unlimited extent affording extensive pasturage. He
found the small herd of cattle were

The fisheries have been sllglitlngly
reterred io by Mr. MacLachlan, but
we have the evidence of a uunibor of
responsible authorities that tho lakes
from Le Pas lo Churchill are swarming
with whltefisn and other food fish like
Trout, pike and even suckers. Salmon, sen trout and whiletlsh are, Mr.

Mr. McKenna, in reviewing ihe evidence of a century nnd a half, adds:
"11. would appear that Canada has at

To Amend R.C.M.P. Act
A resolution to amend the act regarding the Royal Canadian Mounted
Police was passed by the House of
Commons. Th > resolution authorizes the Governor-ln-Council to fix the
pay and allowances of members of the
force, and It also provides that the
time served by officers in the Dominion police force should be included ln
the term of service for pension purposes.
Record Of
Performance Applications
Dominion Livestock Branch In
Position to Give Benefit of
A few weeks ago reference was
made in Ilie Agricultural Press to the
fact that owing to lack of a sufficient
number of inspectors to keep pace
with the expansion of the work, the
Dominion Livestock Branch had been
forced to discontinue the acceptance
of Record of Performance applications
from farms not already on Its lists.
Largely as a result of representations
made by various Breed Associations,
council has since authorized an Increase in Inspection staff with the
result ihat the branch is again in a
position to give the benefit of this
service to all breeders who comply
with the rules. Applications received during May and June, which would
otherwise have been refused, have
been included ir. the lists.

1922 Its output was 30,334,180 pounds,
or nearly two-thirds of the total copper production of Canada for ihat year.
The Premier mine, which In 1922

The hero of Saturday's game
was Edward Olsen the pitching ace
of the Maple Ridge crew. Olsen had
the Young Liberals striking wild at
his curves, and with few exceptions
kept the hits well scattered. He
struck out nine batters. On thc
other hnnd, Bill Brand, looked upon
ns thc best hot of Young Liberals,
was in difficulties throughout. He allowed eleven hits and was ulmost
chased to the showers when four
runs were sent across by thc Valley
Maxwell, Scott antl Goodall were
the heavy hitters for the Hammond
team, the former connecting for
three safeties. Of the six errors
charged up against Hammond, four
were divided between the battery.
Goothtll's first bobble was of the expensive kind, but after that he settled down buck of the plate and'
caught a gootl game. Lewis, who
was brought in from the outfield to
take Goodall's place at shortstop
bandied himself well.
On Tuesday night the two teams
connected in the second game at
Queens Park nnd another record on
the point of attendance was broken.
Perhaps as never before have the
fans taken such keen interest in a
championship series The winer is

tenny for the Provincial title.

Revenue received directly from
timber during the financial year
ending March 31st, 1923, benefitted
the British Columbia treasury to the
extent of $3,247,000. That is to say,
in one year the raw material of the
forest industries alone contributed
this enormous sum to tho running ex
penses of the Province.
During the same period $2,520,000
income tax was paid by the citizens
of British Columbiu of whom a considerable number nre timberholders.
It will be noticed that the income tax
is only 77 per cent of the timber
The question arises, what did thc
timberholder get for the three and
a quarter million he paid to the
Tho Department of Mines according to the Government financial report for 1923, received $150,000 and
paid out $235,000. The Department
of Public Works received $111,000
and paid out $2,744,000; the Depart
ment of Rnilways received $52,000
and paid out $129,000; the Department of Agriculture received $31000
and paid out $437,000. The Department of Lands received $4,009,000,
of which $3,247,000 was revenue
from timber. Of this great sum less
than $700,000was paid back in Forest Protection and the maintenance
of the Forestry Office.
The case of the British Columbia
timberholder constitutes a unique example of over-taxation.
Two facts muct be borne in mind.
Timber is only harvested once in a
lifetime and there is no surer way
to kill a big competitive industry
than to overburden its raw material
with taxation

The Annual Picnic of St. Andrew's
Church, Haney was held last Thursday at the Lillooet. The Company
reached thc ground early in the morning, thanks to the generous consideration of several Truck and Car

large. In addition to the usual features of sports, etc., thc Young People held a camp-fire session, which
was very well attended.
While standing  on   Port  Hammond
On one dark cloudy day,
I saw some Indians come ashore,
To lay their dead away.   __
My  mind   went   back through ages
Then down to those unborn,
And I wondered where we all would
On the resurrection morn.
One   other  thought   impressed   me,
Which some might want to know,
Just where those Indians came from
So many years ago.
With all our great historians,
Both modern and of old,
From   whence   the  Indian  fathers
Not one of them hath told. |
But    when    we    rend    thc    Bible
The greatest book of all—
We find their fathers   crossed   that
Which the prophets called tho wall.
Before we proceed farther,
In order te> explain,
We-will give the starting ptiint,
From whence the Ineltnn came.
Father Jacob hail twelve sons—
Just one for every tribe,
But thc oldest son transgressed thc
Then he was cast aside.
Then to fix this matter up,
Throughout all time to come,
Jacob gave thc Reuben birthright,
To his Joseph's sons.
When they received that birth-right,
They were men destined to fame,
Manasseh was the oldest son—
From him the Indian came.
When they divided all the land
Along the Jordan side,
They pave the land of Heshbon,
To this Manessah tribe.
For the fields of Heshbon languish—
It seems so plain to me—
They travelled down to Jazer,
From there they crossed the sea.
While Zedekiah ruled as King,
Six hundred years B.C.,
That  was  the  time  they left  that
And came across the sea.
When Jesus brought the gospel
For the Gentiles and the Jew,
He said he had some other sheep,
And they must hear it, too.
Thus we know it had to go
To nil thc sons of men •
So Jesus through the heavens flew
And brought it here to them.
When I rend that scripture,
It seemed quite plain to me,
Mannsseh's sons were just the ones
That Jesus came to see.
Long ago, the prophet said,
They were the chosen vine,
But thev would   wander  far  from
Down through the coming time.
When they transgressed the law of
And reviled His holy name,
Thc Saviour placed a mark on them,
But not so dark as Cain.
When Jesus comes on earth to dwell
Among thc sons of men,
He will take thnt mnrk nwuy—
There will be no Indian then.
Then having every curse removed,
We all will bo as one,
And dwell iu pence upon thc earth
With Christ the anointed Son.

It was not possible for the Editor of
The Gazette to go, but we have
made arrangements ..by ..which we
shall publish a series of articles descriptive of the journey and doings
of this representative body of Canadian weekly newspapermen. ..The
articles will give impressions of Bel-

of many points in England and Scot

Harrogate, July 20th, 1924.
Four years ago tho Empire Press
Union visited Canada, Travelling as
far west as Duncan, V.I., their turning point after thc second Imperial
Press Conference at Ottawa.
In the Empire Pres Union are represented all the great journals of
the Empire. The London members
took advantage of an opportunity
to return Canada's hospitality in
1920 by literally smothering her
visiting weekly journalists with hospitality and warm welcome. In the
Provinces the Newspaper Society is
now engaged in completing the good
In London, Mr. H.E.Turner, Sir
frank and Lady Newnes, were our
constant shepherds and companions.
In the Country, Mr. Wm. Astle,
Stockport; Mr. Valentine Knapp,
Kingston- on. Thames; Sir James
Owen, Exeter, and Mr. F.L.Armstrong, have succeeded them.
We spent from Monday, June 30,
to Tuesday, July 8, inclusive, in thi
great metropolis. Of our experiences
there alone one could write a book.
Most of us survived, but the writer
has not yet seen the British Empire
Exhibition, neither was he present
when, on the last night, Lord Bea-
verbrook entertained at Queen's
Hall in order that we might meet Mr
Iloyd George and other distinguished
leaders in British life.
We started off with a visit to the
Houses of Parliament where 6ir
Harr Brittain, M.P.., and a party of
members conducted us all through
the historic buildings and explained
to us hundreds of interesting details. Then followed a luncheon in
the Picture Gallery, Princes' Restaurant Piccadilly, where some of us
met old frientls.and all met members
of the Council of the Empire Press
Union. Lord Riddell, our host gave
us words sparkling with humor and
warm welcome.
Thence we passed to Kensington
Palace, where the Society of Women Journalists had, through Miss
M.F.Billington and Mrs. Massey Lyon
arranged a reception for us, Here
each of our party was presented by
I.okI Burnhai.i to H.R.H.the Duke .<!
Connaught, The Princess Louise
(Marchioness of Lome), and Princess Patricia, all of whom arc closely
connected with Canada. Their action
was a touching tribute to the great
Dominion, ontf every visiting Editor
appreciates it deeply,
One would think that this was
enough for one day. On the contrary
evening found some of us at the
great reception and ball, given in
connection with the British Empire
Exhibition at the Guildhall, by the
Lord Mayor, who cheerily hoped
that each Canadian was having a
good time. With some 6000 guests,
two bands, two concerts, and other
attractions under one roof he plan,

lunched with the Empire Press Union
at the Criterion, and went on to a
reception by the High Commissioner
for Canada (Hon. Peter Larkin) at
the Ritz. Th Annual Dominion Day
dinner took place at the Cecil, and
there our party listened to speeches
by H.R.H.the Prince of Wales, the
Colonial Secretary (Right Hon. J.H.
Thomas), Winston Churchill, T.P.O'
Connor, Messrs. Newton Rowell,Dunning (Premier of Saskatchewan),
and Larkin.
Wednesday, Jply 2nd, and Tuesday, July 8th, wero set npnrt for the
great British Empire Exhibition, of
which I hopo to write later, particularly of the great pageant. On
Thursday, July 3rd, 'by invitation of
the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, we left by special train
from Paddington to Weymouth,
where we steamed through some two
hundred vesols of all classes. We
were to take tea on board the Queen
Elizabeth, the flagship of the Atlantic fleet, commanded by Sir John de
Rocbeck, but the sea was running
too high to permit the transfer of so
many landlubbers.
There were several officers on our
boat who described' the boats to us.
Among them was a son of Senator
Geauvreau, who is well known in
Eastern Canada. One of the most
interesting incidents was when a
submarine went down and reappeared for our edification.
On land we were welcomed and entertained by the Mayor, and other
hosts where the masters and officers
and members of All Souls lodge, No.
170, a Masonic Lodge founded 175
years ago. Its walls enclose many
treasures, including a copy of the
rare 'Breeches' Bible, and a Masonic
chair dating from 1571.
On Friday, July 4th, the men and
ladies were divided, but all saw
something of the immensity of Lon.
don's docks and warehouses, by invitation of the Port of London Authority. The men went by special
steamer from Westminster pier,
down river to King George V. dock,
lunched there and proceeded to the
Royal Albert dock, where they inspected the cold store and transit
shed. Re-embarking they went to
the tobacco warehouse, Royal Victoria dock and then came back by
steamer to their starting point.
The Ladies went bv motor to the
Cutler Street warehouse ami spent
afternoon among cigars,tea,""tttliers,
curios there, and ivory, spice, wool,
wine, rubber, and skins at London

Saturday, July 5th, will always be
a memorable day for us. The directors lunched with Sir Campbell
Stuart, of the Times, and his charming mother, at his home, Bryanstone
Square. It was Sir Campbell's birth-'
day, and he had arranged a great
garden party at Windsor for all of
us. However, this plan had to be
cancelled as, by command of their
Majesties, we had to appear at the
garden party at Buckingham Palace that afternoon.
I cannot attempt to describe that
here, but suffice itto say that both
the King and Queen shook hands
with every British Columbian, and
chatted for a few moments. The
day ended for a few of us at the
home of Sir Frank and Lady Newnes
where we had the great pleasure of
meeting another Canadian who has
become famous in England, Sir
Hamar Greenwood.

It was agaimw all rhyme and reason
that two fox pells, worth many limes

the hands of a ne'er-do-well like AviC
so long after they were marketable.
How, then, had the native come by

when the skins had become pells by

But a broach yawned between the
two—one unwillingly, caused by the
fair addition to (he limited population
of Armistice. It wasn't an open one,
so far, but both knew that H existed
and bridging it was the last thought
of either. They were unadmitted rivals for the tavor of Moira O'Malley.
Anyone who knew tho man, could

the sergeant had all the details. These
had been relayed by his native hostler

such a spread from police rations, but
he was not .0 bo outdone in hospitality. Miss O'Malley and the Morrows
had accepted lib* invitation lo a sourdough luncheon. The factor had not
accepted for an excellent reason that
you probably can imagine.
The three from Mission House were
coming this very noon and the sergeant had been occupied part, of the
morning correcting the haphazard
housekeeping of quarters. In fnct,
they had come, as was attested by the
knocking upon the front door.
More lovely (ban ever Moira seemed to him as she returned a smile to
his enthusiastic gieetings. She was
dressed to-day entirely in white, the
first time he had ever seen her in
anything bul black.
"What a snow bird you are, Moira!"
he exclaimed, almost forgetting to
greet the missionaries.
"In that case, I'm relieved you're
not packing a gun, Sergeant Scarlet."
"Not even side arms." he said, releasing his whimslca' smile. "I'm
the one that's wounded—fluttering.
Put your wraps in the tent, all of you,
and I'll put you to work."
For the first time they noticed the
stage-setting he had created for his
social bow. Every stick of furniture
had been removed and tho floor covered with reindeer moss, gray, soft and
flagrant. Two reserve sleds, padded
with outspread sleeping bags, were
evidently Intended to serve as seats.
The "tent" to which he had referred

Almost Always Due to Weak and
Impoverished Blood
Apart from accident or Illness due
to Infection, almost all Ill-health arises
from one or two reasons. The mistake that people make ls ln not realising that both, of these have the same
cause at the root, namely poor blood.
Either bloodlessness or some other
trouble of the nerves will be found to
be the reason for almost every ailment. If you are pale, suffering from
headaches, or breathlessness, with palpitation of the heart, poor appetite
and weak digestion, the cause ls almost always poor blood. If you have
nervous headaches, neuralgia, sciatica and other nerve pains, the cnuse
Is exhausted nerves. But run-down
nerves are also a result of poor blood,
so thnt the two chief causes of Illness
are one and the snme.
If your health Is poor; If you are
pale, nervous or dyspeptic, vou should
give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair
trial. These pills act directly on the
blood, and by enriching It givo new
strength to worn-out nerves. Men
nnd women alike greatly benefit
through the use of this modiclne. If
you nre weak or ailing, give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills a fair trial and you
will hi' pleased with thu In miliial resulls that will speedily follow.

When Prince Visits Alberta Ranch He

The Prince of Wales, whose comings and goings are popularly followed In America, says he will visit his

there a chance to forget brides and

pitch hay beneath the pleasing fiction
of his incognito like any hired man on

to continue commuting overseas till
his roving commission expires and he

Of Its Kind in History ,

kind in history. Its cost ls estimated
at $200,000,000. It covers an area of
220 acres, or n.ore than one-fourth
the area of Central Park. Thirty
million visitors are expected. But
the exposition ls not out of scale with
the Interests It represents. Behind it
ls an Empire of thirteen and a quarter
million square miles with a population
of nearly four hundred and fifty millions. And tt Is obviously a growing
concern. The area of the Empire
Is larger than It was at the outbreak

The RECORD suggested last
week, that unless better support was
given by the Business men generally, it would bc quite impossible to
continue publication for the present. Regrettably this has not
been provided, and we have no alternative  but  to  gracefully  retire.
It will bc allowed that we have
done our best—that at heavy loss—
to give the citizens an account of
the activities of the town of Agassiz in particular, and of the Kent
Municipality in general. Besides,
and quite above giving the social
anel local news we saw a number of
projects such as.-The securing to
Harrison Hot Springs of an hotel
and Health Resort equal to anything: on the continent; The early
completion of the North Bank Highway from Vancouver to Agassiz;
The assurance of a Fruit Canning
Industry in the District; and provision for a much needed Community
Hall. These may be allowed to be
the outstanding and pressing needs
of the Municipality. They will all
be achieved in the near future for
they are bound to come. The
AGASSIZ RECORD was committed
to strenuous advocacy and abettance . Not out of place to intimate that we shall still, at a distance, be the friend of these and
any other movements calculated to
advance Agassiz and its beautiful
environs. To any gifted with ordinary vision, a future lies before
Kent municipality second to none
in the Valley, nor shall many years
pass before the vision is realized.
To Jhe business men who have
lent their boat support, to our many
interested readers, and to many
kindly and thoughtful friends, we
tender at once regrets at parting
with them and grateful acknowledgment ot their many courtesies,
and, no less so, to Mr. anel Mrs.C.
W. Jfoung for their valuable assistance. If a word further, it would
be to urge every citizen to sense
well the great immediate future of
a district where one has but to
"tickle tlie soil with a hoe to have
it Jaugh with a harvest," and—a
district, too, where its Hot Springs
and Rest Haven will ere long fill a
world   piece.
The above has passed into history
in B.C. It wns some years ago in
the duys of the late Chief Justice
Sir Matthew Baillie Begbie, after a
Victoria Jury had tried a man—
charged with murder by striking
with a sand bag and found him "not
guilty" contrary to the facts of the
case, that the learned judge, with
much Indignation, said to the unworthily released prisoner, "Go and
sandbag the Jury.'
B.C. has maintained a very good
Jueliciary, beginning with its first
Judge Sir Matthew Begbie. Every
citizen will wish such condition to
prevn'1 here
Not. such a condition has ever been
manifested ln U.S.A. For there the
culprit, if he bus plenty of money or
influence can get clever attorneys,
uncifi'/.e'ti juries, anel—well, judges
to clear the guilty, no matter how
aggravated or dastardly the crime,
At present a trial proceeds whore
"Celebrated" Alienists nre moving
heaven and earth to get off as wicked wretches as ever committed
crime on this mundane sphere. .The
sane and true men and women the
civilised world over know, without a
shadow of a iloubt, that both these
fiends did with full anil free knowledge  their diabolical deed.
For money (Would that the celebrated mental specialists did dincln.se
the exact amount of theimincnsij
fees they are getting) they arc going before court and swearing on
their reput ttionsthnl the BCCUIOd are
insane I
Note a Httlc of that thev claim I—
" Loob considered tho crime an Intellectual feast.", "Victims of phantasies", Emotional Children", "Their
deed mi rely breaking out of a dram
world Into a world of reiMles" 'in
a moral sense they have not enough
appreciation of their act' "The Iwys
were merely children dreaming a
great droahi thut became a nightmare." "Irresistible impulse. " a
defence "Special" alienist testifies
that tbe reasons for the boys' act
(1) j»y in crime, (2) thrill of committing murder, (3) publicity, (1)
waiting- to see if discovery would
come, (B) wide spread discussion,
(6) money.
The wall paid defence authorities
plead for "man's mercy" and they
essay  to  call  the  hanging of these
criminals murder,
Hero we hnve examples of the
American upbringing In luxury
under  neglectful  parents
Then the notoriety, Again the
evil tlie publicity will exert upon the
rising generation What an awful
• and flagrant travesty on justice, it
would seem that one could violate
with impunity every law of God anel
man if he has the money. Then
after He has put tho country to a
cost of perhaps millions he enn be
adjudged "emotionally insane' and
sent to a prison to be treated as a
firince for a season, then turned
oose to prey upon society as he recommits his diabolical acts.        '
If this does not soon cease, where
is the least safety or protection for
inocent citizens and defenceless children? Let Canada never know such
The rich, the influential criminals
(because, forsooth, highly paid alienists swear learnedly of phnn-
tasia and emotional insanity) are let
off Those not possessed of extravagant means are not given- a
scintilla of allowance but for their
"joy in crime" and thrill of committing murder" they speedily pay the
penalty—rightly so.
For the Loeb—Leopold Jr. type
hanging is too good, and the only
respite to which they are entitled is
sufficient time to carry out upon the
"alienist specialists" the sage advice given as heading of this  article.
There is yet business for him who
goc3 after it. A good man will seek,
and—find. We want men who first
seek and then embrace opportunity.
Let's be live Canadian citizens. Recently the Robert Dollar Co. besides
the other orders they had on hand
three and a half millions more came
in from Japan and South. To meet
this and other orders this Company
is working night and day, and cutting 250,000 feet per day.
M. E. Thornton, superintendent of
colonization of C.P.R., after making
a journey across the border, said
"Optimism should be thc keynote in
Western Canada, if you can judge
to the south of us. After an extended trip down the Pacific coast as far
as Los Angeles, I am firmly con-
cinced that Canada is on top of the
world sitting in a better position for
the rapid return of prosperity than
any other country.
The state of business in general is
more or less of a mental impression
The man who goes out to get
business and allows thoughts of
failure to obtrude even before his
trip begins, is foredoomed to failure.
He has not a chance, no mntter how
gooei husiness is—we all know that—
the trouble is we forget it so easily.
Just to prove that mental impressions play their part (providing you
elouht our statement that business is
good)), when you go home tonight
—get comfortably senteel—open yeuir
newspaper-—rend all the optimistic
business reports you see, if you begin
to read an adverse report—throw it
overboard immediately and search
for somcthiner brighter. By the
time you have read that paper you
will agree with us—husiness is gooel.

■luring cool weather and perfect
venlillntiem prevails on warm days.
Air shock absorbers will provide
easy riding on thc worst of roaels.

The Company is fortunate in
having as traffic manager, Mr.I.W.
Neil, who operated thc original
stage lino between Vancouver uml
Seattle, in fact, thc first auto
stage in the province. Mr. Neil'
many years' experience in motor
transportation has been of inestimable value in bringing the green
stage line to its present high standard of service and efficiency.
During the years the green stages
have been operating many thousand
passengers have been carried without accident. A high officer of a
Municipality traversed by these
coaches recently stated publicly he
had not a word of complaint about
the cars or the service
This has doubtles been due to the
great care exercised ill the employment of tho drivers who realize
that thc keynote of the service must
be safety.

TO Canadians goes tha honor of
being the first to set foot on
tho top of Mount Ouikie, 10,-
864 feet in altitude and thc highest peak in the Ramparts Range
of Jasper National Park, along the
main lino of tho Canadian .National
Railways. Tho nurty, composed of
Cyril Wates, of Edmonton, Malcolm D. Geddes, of Calgary, and
Vol. E. Fynn, of St. Louis, made
(heir first ascent of Barbican Peak
on July 12, and finding the passage
too difficult there decided to return
nnd attempt the southeast side,
which route had been unsuccessfully attempted in 1022 by Mr.
Wates and Dr. Bulyca, of Edmonton. In that year Yates and Bulyea got within 800 feet of the summit when they were compelled to
turn back,
Two days later Wates, Geddes
and Fynn left camp at 2.80 in tho
morning and climbed a steep snow
gully and up rock chimneys and
cracks, one of which led the climbers Into the heart of the mountain,
filially emerging like a tunnel on
the north face with a drop of over
8,000 feet to the Tonquin Valley
below. After reaching the altitude where they had been in 1022
the party traversed a narrow ledge
encircling the south side of the
mountain nnd reached the top at
four o'clock In the afternoon. In
doing so they faced a difficult and
dangerous rock climb, having to
overcome rotten rock and falling
stones at many points.
The party descended by moonlight, reaching their camp at 4,80
on tho morning of July 15, exhausted but happy over their success.
Other parties aro attempting to
climb Mount Gclkle this summer,
but the honor of first reaching tha
summit must go to Wates, who has
just successfully/ completed hist
third attempt, Another party;
headed by Dr. Thorrlngton, noted
American climber, was attempting
tho nscent with guide Conrad Kain,
when they saw tho Wates party at
the top and turned back.
