A most enjoyable afternoon and
evening was spent'^Tuesday by a
number of small children at the
home of Mrs. Wm. Clarke.
The older ones spent the afternoon playing baseball, while the
younger ones were entertained by a
programme of games, arranged and
supervised by Miss Eva Sumpter. A
lawn supper was served at 6 p.m.
in the shade of the grape-vine bower, the tables being decorated with
gaily colored sweet peas and mori-
gilds. The chief feature of the
evening was a peanut scramble,
which was enjoyed as much by the
older people as by the children
themselves. At 8 p.m. each one returned home happy and excited after the day's pleasure.
Those present included Betty and
Mary Huntingford, Eileen Smith,
Fern Naismith, Mary Mahy, Odetta
Hicks, Theodore Greyell, Allan McDonald, Stanley Bates, Gordon Ma-

Alexander S. Duncan
Resident at MISSION CITY,  B.C.
LnBt week a group of Agassiz
boys returned from camp at Cultus
Lake. All were sunburned and bubbling over with en-.;iusiasni on account of thc good time they had at
the camp under the direction of the
Rev. R. M. Thompson, of Chiliiwack
and the Rev. G. Turpin of Agussiz.
Twenty boys in all were in cump,
twelve from Chiliiwack and eight
from Agassiz. Every day was filled
with activities, from the sound of
the rising whistle at 7 a.m. to lights
out at ten p.m. The boys looked after their own cooking, camp cleaning, and bed making. Here is a
sample of the da/'.* programme :
Up at seven a.m., physical jerks or
setting up exercises to stretch muscles and waken up the sleepy head,
then in for the morning dip to give
one an appetite for breakfast ;
then flag-raising and breakfast at
eight. After breakfast, bed making, wood cutting, vegetable preparing and water carylng. At 10:30
camp council, at which all the boys
and leaders met to detail boys to
their duties, and decide on activities
for the day. At this council a portion of scripture was read and prayer offered. At 11 o'clock all went
in for the morning swim under the
supervision of Mr. Turpin. Dinner
was welcomed by hungry boys at
twelve noon. Dinner over, the boys
were required to rest for an hour.
The afternoon was devoted to hiking, and instruction in camp craft,
astronomy, etc., and at 4:30 all
went swimming again. Supper at
six o'clock, after which baseball •
then, at eight, the camp fire was
lighted and the boys sat around the
fire and listened to the stories of
the adventures of Helen, told by Mr.
Maynard, and to the thrilling tales
of the beginnings of things as revealed in the adventures of Ang
Rang and Ul and Ulv told by Mr.
Turpin. Then at ten p.m., as the .
boys stood beside the dying embers |
of the fire, a moment of prayer was
held and then twenty tired boys
hied to bed—some to sleeo and some
to while away a time in recounting
the fun and adventures of the day.
The Agassiz boys did credit to the
community and to the homes they
represented. All undertook cheerfully the camp duties allotted to
them, and all showed good sportsmanship in the games and in regard
to behaviour the leaders never had
to scold or reprimand any boy in
the camp, On account of the good
time in camp, both boys and leaders
were sorry when the day came to
pack up and return home. The following boys formed the Agassiz
group : J. Morgan, Nicoi McRae,
Duncan McRae, Donald MacCallum,
Gordon McRae, ' Robt. Dennis, Edward Fleck and Clifford Clarke.

This being the first day of the
play-oft* and very exciting. The
East-Enders in the fifth innings mak
ing three runs, and also with three
men left on bases at end of sixth.
Friday's game—second of the
three-game play-off between the
Centrals and Eastend Cubs—resulted in a tie 4-4. Both teams had
opportunities to win, but just at
that moment each team tightened
up. Twice the Cubs had the bases
loaded, once with none down, and
once with one down, but the odd
run was missing. Consequently,
since the second game resulted in a
draw, the final game will be played
on Wednesday at 2:30 in the school

A bad fire occurred on the farm
of Mr. R. M. Cameron when his big
new barn was burned to the ground
ta about 6 p.m., August 7th.
Fourteen cows and a bull were
brought in and tied up previous to
milking, all of which burned to
death excepting two cows which had
not been tied, and one which was
rescued though badly scorched. AH
winter feed was destroyed It seemed a terrible thing to bring all those
poor animals in and tie them up to
be burned to death, but it might
have been worse if the fire had occurred later in the evening, as two
of the children had been accustomed
sleeping in the hay mow and would
have in all probability lost their
It is not known, but is supposed
that the fire originated from spontaneous combustion in the hay.
Miss Mabel Henley, daughter of
Mr. Wm. Henley, secretary of the
Fraser Valley Milk Producers' Association, had a narrow escape from
drowning in Maria Slough, She,
Mamie MacCallum, Gladys McRae,
and her sister, Edith Henley, were
bathing, when she got out of her
depth. Miss McRae and Miss MacCallum went to her assistance, when
they all went down. Their cries for
help were at first not noticed, as it
is a common thing to hear bathers
shouting and playing in the water,
but young Allen Spencer, who was
also bathing, realiing that there was
something wrong rushed to their
assistance, and, being a good swimmer, succeeded in bringing her to
shore after some difficulty. The
reason was not only due to the
prompt action on the part of young
Spencer in responding to the call,
for help, but also to the fact that
Miss Henley neyer lost her head,
and did as she was told,, which was
not an easy thing under the circumstances.
Allen Spencer is the only son of Mr.
J. M. Spencer, of Spencer & Stout,
and deserves great credit for his

What Of Canada s Future?
One day recently (lie1 writer or ihis weekly article re'ad iwo divergent
views oC Canada's progress during Uie' past few yours. One was pessimistic;
tlio other qultn optimistic, l'et there was much ol n-ulli In both, altogether
neither writer appeared to lake into consideration ihe1 effects of lite Great
War on lhe progress and development of the Dominion.
The pessimistic noli' was sounded hy .Miss Agnes Laut, well-known writer
ami lecturer. She Is nol nl all pleased with Canadian progress, believes Hint
sectionalism is rife1, ami tlfal Canadians an' nol living up lo their possibilities.
Declaring thai she' i.s frankly very depressed about Canadian conditions, Miss
Lain states that whal this country need's just now Is a ringing message of
optimism, founded on fact, ami that site cunnui give "liil Canada's mental outlook changes toward tlio world."
"l used to think," continues Miss l.nui, "ii wns economic pressure prevented Canada measuring up to her unequalled Inheritance of great natural
wealth. Now I know It Isn't. It is your lack of dedication lo Ihe Ideal in
which your nation was conceived nnd born—'He shall holel dominion from sea
to sea.' Instead of thai 1 see Canadian sectionalism growing." Ami thi'ii
Miss Laut dwells on lhe' exodus of Canadians lo tlie1 United Stairs, and ilie'
fact of a population of only nine mlllons whereas, she says, Canada ought lo bo
a nation ol 40 in GO millions, humming witli prosperity thai could be heard
arounel tin1 world.
Tlie opposing, ntiel inore* optimistic view is presented in articles appear-
ing in Toronto Saturday Night, which recalls the prediction of the late' Sir
Wilfrid Laurier Unit the Twentieth Century would be> Canada's Century, Sir
Wilfrid maele' ihis prediction in the days when Canada was emerging from a
long pt'i'iod of halting growth into an era of amazing progress—an era, 1S98
to 1910. which even Miss Laut says was Canada's oue era of "humming pros-
Almost one-quarter of that century has passed, and what does the record
disclose? Toronto Saturday Night finds in the progress of Canada during tlie
last twenty-live yi'ars a conclusive' answer that thus far tlie' Dominion has lived up lo Us title of being "The Country of the Twentieth Century." II note's
lhat Canada lias become in fact, as well ns in promise', tlie controlling factor
ln tho world's wheal trade—one1 of tlio giants of international commerce; It
draws attention to Canada's astonishing advance in thu production of pulp
and paper; It refers to the extension of Canada's manufacturing activities in
countless directions until today tho Dominion Is ranked high among the industrial naiions of tlie1 world; il cites the tremendous expansion ln trade and
commerce lo a figure' which few business men would have1 imagined or dare-d
to prophesy twenty or eve'n fifteen ye-ars ago.
Hut what of lho future? Unquestionably, and notwithstanding the
growth of tlie past twenty-five years, encouraging In many respects as that
growth undoubtedly ls, Canada is yet a long way from being' the country it
ought to bo, and Nature, with its bountiful gills, Intended It should be. What
is Hie reason? Is It sectionalism nnd lack of a great national ideal, as Miss
Laut says, or is it lhe economic pressure of a great and highly organized nation lo the soulh in which Canadians ran find a home without the disabilities
of an unfamiliar language aud customs which mosl emigrants from one country
to another suffer, or ls it Canada's somewhat rigorous climate, or Is there
some lack of Initiative nnd courage on the part of Canadians ln applying themselves to tlie development of lho Dominion's great wealth of nalural resources?
It would be Idle to deny that Ihere is loo much sectionalism ln Canada.
The fact of two race's, two official languages, two great opposing religious
groups, necessarily tends towards sectionalism. This Is further accentuated
by tlie geography of Canada which divides the* Dominion into two economic
groups, east and wesl. Time and development alone' can fully overcome
these obstacles, and they are being overcome. Racial and religious animosities are not nearly so acute us ihey we're a quarter of a century ago.
Notwithstanding the attraction of tlie l'nited Stales. Canada's population
litis increased by nearly four millions sinco tlie Twentieth Century dawned,
anel as Hie Dominion grows and develops, and opportunities are thereby increased, the attraction of the United Slates will steadily lessen.
Canadians have displayed courage ami Initiative', and for a nation of^ew
people scattered over half a continent, have remarkable achievements to thedr
credit, Nevertheless, It must be admitted that our captains of finance nnd
Industry have not exerted themselves as ihey should, nor taken full advantages
of tlie great opportunities which we're theirs to develop and bring prosperity
to their country,    There is room for vast improvement here.
Canadians should develop a national Ideal. They should tie more optimistic regarding Canada's future, because, without deiubt, lhe Dominion faces n
career, as Toronto Saturday Nlghl puts It, In which the period of economic
youth and growth has still a long and promising course to run.

Discover Bison Herd
Two Thousand Buffalo Found In Slave

There were, reports from Indians
and hunters a little time ago that the
bison sllll existed ln certain districts
of the Canadian west, but It was sup-
poseel that the observers had made a
mistake' about thc kind of animals
they had Been, and that these wero
not Hie true bison. Finally, lho Government sent an expert naturalist to
visit the region, and lie has returned
with the news that a herd of wild
bison, the real genuine animal, as big
anil strong ns the bison of the early,
■lays, ls living ln the country between
the Peace River, lhe Slave, and Hie
Caribou Mountains. There are 2,000
of Ihem, and their numbers nre growing.
So the Canadian Government has assigned to theso four-footed citizens of

Canada s >rVorst Advertisement
For Business Sagacity Is The
Record Or Forest Fires
For Imperial Preference
(By Robson Black)
The worst advertisement for tlie
business sagacity of Canadians is the
record of forest fires. What's the
use: of begging Immigrants to throw in
their lot With us. if we are such
Wretched housekeepers us lo turn live
million acres of Umbei'lnnd inlo charcoal and flrewood as we ellel eluring
the summer nl 1928? Every Immigrant on the' farm Is a prodigious user
of forest materials. In fuel three-
fourths of the timber cut ln America
ls taken for tarm purposes. If we
outlaw lhe forest we outlaw the farm,
n procedure thai has taken place already In scores of Canadian districts.
Seventy per cent, of ihe' farmers of
Quebec gel n substantial part of Ihelr
livelihood from work In the woods.
The length of life we guarantee to our
forest estate is pl'el'isi'ly tile measure
of the life of agriculture In Quebec,
Ne!W Brunswick anel a considerable portion of Ontario nnd British Columbia.
The public Is absolute arbiter of lhe
forest. Whether we shall sweep
Vlownhill lo bankruptcy or make Uie
forest redeem our war debt and pul
Us on the highroad to prosperity depends on the deliberate decision of the
thousands of Canadians who, for work
or play, enter th-: woods and leave a
path of red flame behind Ihem; Fire
ls tlie one abomination of lhe woods.
It is the killer of Industry, thc exller
of workmen. Us ravages make the
devastations of axemen seem paltry.
It lays low ten trees to the axemen's
one. It destroys not alone lhe tree
but the soil and postpones for half a
century the ability of an area to grow
more trees of the kind we want.
Our public leaders are talking of
population these days from the single
point of view of vacant farm lands.
The population problem does not end
there. Eighty per cent, of our habit-
able area in Canada is non-agricultural. If forest industries do not find a
living there, that eighty per cent, remains a No Man's Land lor ever. No
other lure exists but the lure of standing timber. Furthermore, Uie farmer's working plant Is derived from, the
forest and his. production costs rise
with lumber costs and lumber costs
always carry nn unseen percentage lor
forest fires. The late Sir Edmund
Walker said shortly before bis death
that the greatest menace to the business futuro of Camilla was the prevalence of forest fires, anel Sir Clifford
Slfton has since declared that If the
present rate of forest destruction continues we cannot avoid a heavy loss of
population along wllh the Industries
and municipalities subsisting upon
forest manufacUres.
The people" of Canada own 85 per
cent, of the for.'nt lands and nt the
some tlmo nre wiping off the ledger of
national assets mere thnn five million
acres of forest lands a year. This ls
a day of rising forest values, when
every district ihat possesses forests
will pull to itself never Industries, new

world scarcity of timber supplies.

The care ot livestock during the

The vegetable garden and seed

concerning cultivation, rogucing and
protection against, insects and diseases.
The storage life of an apple depends
largely on .the treatment It receives
during the six to eight weeks following the time It is picked. Air-cooled
or common storage houses offer s
relatively cheap, and when properly
constructed nnd carefully operated, a
fairly efficient substitute for a local
cold storage plant built on a large
scale. The storage life of even lhe
summer apples can be considerably
prolonged by the use of air-coled storage.

. The other day a shrewd, experienced grower and handler of wheat, made
an obsei'ViUon thai is worthy of more

When the "rust" came vitality was
lacking, and hence disappointment.
This year's crop 's of the hardy,
well-rooted variety, giving hope of increasing expectations as the ripening
season progresses.
There are those who theorize that
years of plenty and lean years come
in rotation groups. Perhaps this
theory has been handed down from the
days'of Joseph, the man who bought
the farmers' surplus grain, storing It
in warehouses for a period of crop
failure. Experience ln this west does
not bear out the rotational idea. Much
depends on the eccentricities of
weather. This year, barring a little
lateness, ihe foundation conditions
have been most favorable. And the
harvest prospects are the same.—Winnipeg Tribune.

Mr. Ilannel described the work done
In Canada concerning the carbonization of lignite coal and said that Canadian lignites were different in chemical and physical properties from those
of Europe.
The consensus of the debate was
thai the days of the utilization of
raw coal were numbered and that
all countries would have to first extract the valuable by-products, leaving a residue suitable for domestic
fuel purposes.
There wns considerable discussion
regarding the utilization of peat, the
Canadian delegation agreeing entirely with the opinion that there were
no processes depending upon mechanical pressing and artificial drying that
would prove economical for many generations.

Recently an official representing
the Dominion Government came to
British Columbia with an order in
his pocket for 125 pieces of squared
timber of unique strength and record dimension, to fill an extraordinary engineering specification.
To give some idea of the size of
these timbers the total board measurement of the 125 pieces approaches one million feet. They must
also be without defect.
A search of their limits for trees
to produce these huge sticks will bc
made by prominent B.C. Logging
firms, and there is no doubt but
that the "goods" will be found and
This incident illustrates the wonderful quality of British Columbia's
timber stand. Only the Douglas Fir
area of the Pacific Coast could fill
an order for timbers of such size,
strength and soundness.
Costly Equipment.
At the same time, only the costly
modern equipment installed by the
logers will enable the logs for this
order to be yarded and transnorted
from the woods, and only the up-to-
the minute machinery of the manufacturer wil permit their sawing and
squaring to the required dimensions.
Millions upon millions of dollars
have been sunk in the equipment
necessary to handle the harvesting of
B.C.'s timber crop.and millions more
in the machinery for its conversion
into finished timber. But for this
industrial investment, not only the
official from Ottawa, but the buyers of the world, would look in vain
for the delivery of the bior timbers
from British Columbia's lorests.

Which the prophets called the wall.
Before we proceed farther,
In order to explain,
Wc will give the starting point,
From whence thc Indian came.
Father Jacob had twelve sons—
JJJust one for every tribe,
But the oldest son transgressed the
Then he was cast aside.
Then to fix this matter up,
Throughout all time to come,
Jacob gave the 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 Idnian came.
When they divided all the land
Along the Jordan side,
They pave the land of Heshbon,
Ta this Manasseh 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 nnd the JJeJw,
He said he had some other sheep,
And they must hear it, too.
Thus we know it had to go
To all the sons of men '
So JJesus through the heavens flew
And brought it here to them.
When I read that scripture,
It seemed quite plain to me,
Manasseh's sons were just the ones
That Jesus came to see.
Long ago, the prophet said,
They were the chosen vine,
But they would    wander   far   from
Down through the coming time.
When they transgressed the law of
And reviled His holy name,
The Saviour placed a mark on them,
But not so dark as Cain.
When Jesus comes on earth to dwell
Among the sons of men,
He will take that mark away—
There will be no Indian then.
Then having every curse removed,
We all will be as one,
And dwell in peace upon the earth
With Christ the anointed Son.

In respect to Canada's Imperal
relations the firm stand taken by
the Government in connection with
the Lausanne Treaty and the Inter-
Allied Conference, now proceeding
in London, insisting upon absolute
equality of status as a partner in
the Empire, was endorsed practically unanimously by the House. As a
result of Premier King's consistent
and courageous stand on every instance where Downing Street tried
to put Canada back into the old
colonial status it is safe to say that
history will accord him an enduring
place among the makers of the constitution of the British Commonwealth.

Letter No. 3.
....A special party of members of the
Canadian Weekly Newspapers Association is at present in England.
It was not possible for the Editor of
Tka Gaxette to go, but we have
made arrangements ..by ..which we
shall publish a series of articles descriptive of tha .journey and doings
of tkls representative body of Canadian weekly newspapermen. ..The
articles will give impressions of Bel-
gum, the battlefields, Paris, London,
the British Empire Exhibition, and
of many pointa in England and Scot
land. ..They are written especially
for Tka Gaaette by Hugh Savage,
editor ..of ..Th* . Cowichan Leader,
Duncan, and president of tka British
Columbia and Yukon Press Association.
July 2nd, 1924.
I have come for a brief space to
a haven of peace in the leafy heart
despaired that any feeble attempt
to describe the tour of the Canadian Editors of weekly newspapers
would be written.
The past ten days have been such
a whirl of new experiences and so
crowded with events made the more
memorable and important in that
they are the tributes of the peoples of Belgium, France and Great
Britain to Canada as represented
by some of their scribes and their
Once, indeed there came nearly
four hours of opportunity to write.
That was last Sunday when the party of us flew across from Paris to
London. But that story must wait
with a score of others. I have thought that my readers would prefer to
know what we are doing and what
we propose to do.
We left the good old Melita at
Antwerp, after an official breakfast, tendered on board by the C.P.R
and with representatives of the Belgian Government and the City, went
to the Hotel de Ville (City Hall),
were welcomed by the Burgomaster,
and inspected its art treasures, A
trip by launch around the harbor
In the afternoon we entrained for
Malines, where we were received by
that great world figure and saintly
man, Cardinal Mercier, by the burgomaster, and by a carillon from the
sweetest bells in the world, played
in our special honor.
Brussels greted us, through her
Pres Association, when we arrived
in the evening. Next day (Sunday)
our first act was to place a wreath
upon the grave of Belgium's unknown soldier. A reception and address
by the Belgian Chamber of Commerce followed.
Next, Mr. Hymans, Minister of
Foreign Affairs, received us and a
Belgian Journalist then conducted
us through the Housese of Parliament (Representative and Senate).
It was in the latter that Edith Cavell
was condemned to death. On our
way to the City Hall, to the Burgomaster's reception, we watched a
wonderful religious procession (Cor
pus Christi).
In the afternon we drove through
wods and pleasant ways to the Colonial Museum (Congo) and, after
tea in the gardens, visited the "Tir
National", where Miss Cavell and
some thirty-five Belgians were executed. Here, through the Kindly
forethought of Mr. A.Stuart Blake-
ney, Canadian Government Trade
Commissioner, each of us received
a rose, from his wife or little girl
and placed it on the memorial slab.
Thence we pased to the Royal
Palace, where King Albert ifraciotis-
ly ihook hands with each visitor,
who was introduced by the British
Ambassador,   Sir   George   Graham.

Granville Island,
In the evening many went out to the
Field of Waterloo.
On Monday a special train took us
us to Liege. In thc morning we went
through the great engineering works
of the Cockerill firm, and were welcomed by the Burgomaster at the
Town Hall. At luncheon, by request
there was a lusty singing of "0
The afternon passed quickly a-
mid the ruins of Fort Loncin, whose
galant defender, Col. Naessens,
held up the German onrush in August, 1914. We drove to the citadel,
overlooking a glorious panorama,
and returned to Brussels by night.
Early next day found us in the
train for Lille, where hearty welcome and a wonderful luncheon a-
waited us by the "Bienvenue Fran-
cais" (a semi-official body for welcoming guests to France and promoting internatonal goodwill), and
M.Agache, head of the huge Kuhl-
man industries. It was 10 p.m. ere
we returned to Lille from a drive to
Ypres through historic ground.
On the morrow (June 25th) cars
took us first to Perenchies , where
we looked over the chemical works
and the textile factory of the Kuhl-
man interests, and drank champagne
while a band of a hundred crashed
out "0 Canada" and the "Marseillaise". We lunched with the directors of the mining company at Noeux
le Mains, the event being in honor
of the opening of their new coal
mine at Vimy Ridge.
The afternon went all too swiftly
driving through the battlefields,
mounting to Vimy Ridge and on to
Aras, whence we entrained for
It wil be sen by the foregoing
that we have had a strenuous programme. The ladies have not been
the only people to feel tired, and
one Albertan Editor was il at Malines for two days, where Cardinal
Mercier and Belgian Officials proved more than Samaritans.
Of Paris it seems sacrilege to attempt to condense. Here again our
first act was to lay a wreath on the
grave of France's "Soldat Inconnu"
who sleeps in the most magnificent
mausoleum in the world—beneath
the glorious Arc de Triomphe. Here
General Gevsard, representing General Nolet, Minister of War, received our tribute. It was a memorable scene.
Most of our first afternoon (June
26th) went all too quickly inspect- f
ing Carrol and Co.' factory where'
medicines and perfumes are made.
Then we went on to he City Hall,
where M.Quentin, the newly-elected
President of the Council (Mayor),
received and adresed us It was his
first reception.
The City Hall is a dream of beauty and magnificence—art, tapestry,
pictures, statues, carvings—but even
its glories were eclipsed when, next
day we went to Versailles.
Most of the time we spent at the
Trianons, later visiting the great
hall of mirrors, where the Peace
Treaty was signed. At night there
was a dinner at the Inter—Allied
Club, where Marshal Foch presided
and spoke and many distinguished

Regard For The Law
Nowhere in the civilized world,

the warning that had been given hint
at lhe time of his ni-roHl, for he had
nol entirely trusted the ability of Hie
volunteer translator who hnd served
him tt|. North.
"Ask 1)1 iti II lie tennws who Hie Royal
Canadian Mounted Pollen ure'," wns
the first address to the Interpreter.
There followed verbal explosions
buck and forth.
"Olespe says Ihey are Hie rich men
of Hie country," reported the Interpreter.
Shrugging hi. shoulders over lhe
apparent hopelessness of tlie situation,
Seymour triad again: "Ask him whnt
he thinks the pollca came' Inlo the
country for."
"To make us unhappy," came the
repent presently.
"In what way—unhnppy?"
Feeding thnt he was mnklug progress, the sergeant got to the vital
point. "Ask him what I said lo him
when l pul him under arrest?"
"He says," translated tlie Interpreter, "you told him he'd get hurt if be
talked too much."
Seymour decided to let It go at that
nnd led the way to Hi.' outbuilding

had been sledded so many snowy
miles because there wus no possibility
or finding u while jury nearer. The
Eskimo .added Indifferently whnt wus
translated inlo "She no good wile."

of his investigations nl lhe scene of

The saddest task of (he day was at
hand—one from which these strong
men shrank, but which none was
ready to shirk. Presently a strange
procession came up the trail from the
hut of tragedy. In the lend was the
police team of malamutes, with La
Marr beside the forJmost dog, holding him by leash to a dignified pace.
They drew a sled carrying a blnnket-

Triumph Of Young Architect
British Boy, Twenty-Two, Designed
Big Liverpool Cathedral
The triumph of a youthful British
architect was crowned by the consecration of the Liverpool Cathedral, ln
the presence of King George and
Queen Mary. Thc cathedral was designed by Gilbert Scott when he was
only twenty-two years old. When
completed It will rank as one of the
largest ln thc world, being surpassed
ln size only by St. Peter's in Home
and the Cathedral of Seville ln Spain.
It Is the third Anglican cathedral
to be built ln England since the Reformation. Scott's design, which represented his first work as an architect, won the prize in a competition
ln which more than a hundred architects had entered.
St. George's Hall, In Liverpool, held
to be the finest example of Greek
architecture ln this country, was designed by the late Harvey Lonsdale
Elmcs when he was twenty-threo
years old. Ralph Knott represents
another example of youthful achievement ln architecture. He planned
the County Hall, In which the London
County Council now meets, when he
was twenty-nine.

Immigration  Increasing
New  United  States Quota  Law Will
Prove Benefit to Canada
(By Norman S. Rankin)
Canada stands to benefit materially
by the new United States Immigration
tjuuta Law which comes Into effect at
midnight on June 30th next. It will
be of advantage to tlio Dominion in
two ways, first, by the very considerable reduction ol alt tiuotas, und, sec-
olid, by the provision that restricts
Immigration from Canuda by barring
out all but Canadian-born or Canadian
citizens resident In tho Dominion for
five years or more, as compared wllh
the pie-sent regulation that practically
puts a one-year resident ln Canada on
a pur with a bona fldc Canadian citizen.
A study of Hie new Quota Law Indicates lhat while the year Just ondlng
permitted an Immigration Into the
United Slates ot 367,803, under tho
new law the year's lotal will work out
al 161,990, or less than one-half the
previous figure. It ls further apparent that all countries except France—
which never reached Its full quota-
will have exhausted their quotas for
tlio year, certainly before It is halt
over, and HuiL tho remaining prospective emigrants will require, as an alternative, to consider the prospects
and possibilities of Canada, contiguous to the United States, as the country most suited to their requirements.
Under the new law, requiring a five
years' residence ln Canada, this country wlll cea30 to bo the stopptng-off
place for Britishers and Europeans
destined to the United States as their
permanent placj of residence, which
wlll doubtless cause more United
States steamship companies to divert
their liners to Canadian ports, and already, for Instance, the Swedish-
American, the Norwegian-American,
the Holland-American, the Scandinavian-American the Royal Mall Steam
Packet and tne Italian lines have altered their routes
As soon as the provisions ot the new
law become effective, July 1st, persons of all nationalities, excepting
Canadian-born, will be required to procure an Immigration visa at a cost of
Jill and will have to pay to the U.S.
Immigration Commissioner the (8
head tax. After the visa has been
obtained each Intending Immigrant Is
subject to the regulations as applied
by the U.S. Immigration authorities.
Such aliens are also subject to the
quota of each nationality as laid down
by tho new act. Regulations pertaining to the quota of each natlonall-
Ity to be admitted from Canada monthly have not yet been completed.
Canadian-born people will not be
subject to the quota. Those going to
reside permanently ln the U.S. will
require, however, both immigration
visa nnd head tax receipt, but those
going on business or pleasure will continue to be admitted without visa or
head tax solely at the discretion of
the U.S. Immigration authorities In
Canada. Little difficulty ls anticipated In applying the law so far as Canadian-born are concerned. The main
question facing U.S. authorities here
ls the Issuance of visas to persons not
Canndlan-born waiting In tho Dominion for a chance to cross the border.
Tho following are the estimated Immigration quotas from tho principal
European countries, bused on 2 per
cent, of the 1890 census with a minimum of 100, as compared wllh the Immigration figures under tho present
law, tho latter llgurus, In each ciibo

Aid To World Peace
The Unity and Strength Which Wa

But for world peace, for the very
salvation, It may be, of a pacific civilization In the world? almost the first
condition ls the common understanding, the unity and strength which we
know as the British Commonwealth.
In so far as the Brlllsh Institute of

may well prove Invaluable. It has

and has done excellent work, but fresh

Cruelty To Animals
Various Points Of View As To What
Constitutes Cruelty
Arnold Bennett, the English novelist, recently went to Spain and saw a
bullfight. He said It was cruel, although ho was not disgusted. But he
said Englishmen had no right whatever lo criticize the Spaniards for the
cruelty ln the bullring while lhe former hunted foxes and chased mother otters. And he said the cruelty inflicted upon tho horses ln the bullring was
nothing to the refined moral and physical cruelty Inflicted on splendid racehorses ln the Grand National Steeplechase each year.
So points of view vary as to what
ls cruel and no nation can afford to
reprove another until Us own hands
are clean. It ls safe to say, for example, that the barbaric torture inflicted on fur-bearing animals In Canada each season by the use of the steel
trap ls such as to give Canadians no
right whatever to speak of the cruelty
to animals on the part of other people.
Kindness to unlr.'als begins at home.

In summoning thc cowboys In London

British Columbia's mills are reaping

ls that the Japanese buyers are demanding fresh cut, large squares. This

...The People and Business Men of

and its District or to cease. ..Tho
matter is a  local choice.
No one has any right to expect
something for nothing, and it is well
known, at least to Newspapermen,
that Advertising alone can carry the
costs. ..f the Advertisements are not
forthcoming to carry at least the
cost of the mechanical production
surely no right thinking Citizen

The Record has done its part. It

The Dewdney Trunk Road will
at the week end be open to traffic
quite from Vancouver to Harrison
Mills, the work having been rushed
the past three months. Chief a-
mong the construction feats was the
erection of a splendid bridge pver
the Main Dam and the Blind Slough
at Stave Falls.
Too the road destroyed by a land-
side two months ago has not only
been repaired, but a detour of the
mountain has been made so as to
avoid possibility of future slides.
All that awaits now is to get a
bridge over the Harrison River and
the long ardent dream of a North
Side Road becomes a reality. This
wil be a great boon to all Citizens
on the North Bank especially and
to all in the Valley in general.
Friday. Aug. 8th was enjoyed by

will no doubt be prized as a relic of
an enjoyable evening.
The broom dance was again popular, although not thoroughly understood by all. The idea is that all

tho wharves at Fort William and
Port Arthur this season has been
unprecedented, according to reports
of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which, by the end of October, had

lower Lake ports.
Port Arthur's building permits
for the ten months ending October
showed a total of $2,632,055, which
is the biggest building year in the
history of this Ontario city, exceeding even the total for 1921, one of

Canada exported $4,778,000 worth
of cheese to various countries during the month of October, an increase of $1,224,000, over the total

far the largest consumer, taking
215,000 cwt, valued  at $4,634,000.
According to an announcement of
Hon. E. H. Armstrong, Premier of
Nova Scotia and Minister of Mines,
the coal production of his province
for this year will reach at least
6,200,000 tons, an increase over last
year's production of 4,642,196 tons
of more than 1,500,000 tons. The
outlook for 1924 is encouraging.
The Prince of Wales, unless interfered with by affairs of state, intends to make annual visits to his

superintendent of the E. P. Ranch,

Fur traders in the distant parts
of Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia, ordinarily weeks and
months from mail service, are now
getting regular quotations on furs
from the Calgary Herald's radio
broadcasting service.
The annual winter carnival at
Banff, which Is yearly becoming
more popular and is attracting
■porting enthusiasts from all parts
of the continent, will be held February 2-9, 1924, while the Banff
annual bonspiel will take place February 4-9.
According to estimates made by
the Rt. Rev. Dr. G. Exton Lloyd,
Bishop of Saskatchewan, that province has room for another empire

covering 2,400 miles, and estimates
that homes and livings for 250,000
could be provided in the country referred to.

Theso physical deficiencies, In
somo walks of life, are of little Importance, But ln railroading certain
responsible positions require perfect
vision, color-sense and hearing.
The examination ol aspirants to
positions ns enflnders, firemen, conductors, trainmen, watchmen aud
others directly concerned with tho
safety of trains, and the periodical
rc-examlnation of successful candidates, in these vital matters ls the
business of the railroads. In the
Canadian Pacific, which provides an
outstanding example of the car.
with which they are conducted, there
is a special department charged with
this work. It is called the Time
Service and Vision, Color-Sense ami
Hearing Department. There ls a
Chief Examiner for Eastern lines
and one for Western lines, each with
a separate office.
AU applicants for the positions already referred to, which demand a
high standard in vision, color-sense
and hearing, are required to pass an
applicant examination and, if sue
cessful, must pass u further examination at least every two years
thereafter, and In some Instances
more frequently, according to the
diminution of their vision or hearing.
They are also re-examined after any
accident in which they are either
directly or indirectly involved and
which may have been caused by defective sight, hearing or coior-sense.
In addition, following any serious
injury or Illness or severe Inflammation of either thc eyes or eyelids,
they are again re-examined and, uot
content with this, the regulations of
the Canudlan Pacific require them to
face the examiner whenever they are
slated for promotion.
Caution and regard for the public
safety could hardly go further than
this !
The tests employed are exhaustive
and arc so arranged as to approximate as closely us possible to actual
condlUons likely to bo met with in
their Svork by those examined. Applicants for positions as engineers,
firemen, conductors, brakerpen and
others similarly employed are required to pass tbo near and far vis-
Ion tests without glasses. If, at one
of the periodical re-examlnatlons,
employees ln these positions are
found to be In need of glasses, they
are allowed to wear them, provided
they bring the vision up to the required standard. Applicants for
other positions may wear glasses for
near or far vision, depending on their |
work. All glasses must bo approved by the company nnd every employee using them is obliged to curry
a aeicond pair for emergencies.
The vision teat, which Is hold In
doors, Involves the rending of Sncl-
Ions test typos, Including letters of
varying sizes, at a distance of
twenty feet or loss, and the reading
of an Amerlcnn Railway Association
standard reading card for testing
noar vision.
Applicants and employees examined for bearing must have normal
hearing ln each ear. They are
obliged to repeat correctly train orders given ln a normal voice at a
distance of twenty feet. How lm-
portant this ls will readily be recognized by those who recollect the
difficulties of making out conversation through the noise of a locomotive with steam up or through thc-
clamour of wind or rain. A mistake
ln a few all-Important syllables under these conditions may easily be
made unless one has perfect hear
Most Interesting ot the examinations ls that for color-sense. The
men are asked to Identify colors
displayed by a Williams lantern and
to pass a Holmgren or Thompson
color-selection test. The latter test
is held ln broad daylight. A large
number of skeins of "wool of varying colors, called confusion colors
because they are specially selected
with a view to contusing the colorblind, are placed before the examinee. The examiner tells him to
pick out all the wools which havered, green or some other color in
them or perhaps to match them for
shades. The man obeys and ln a
moment reveals his weakness, If he
has any.
In the Williams lantern test the
applicant Is taken into a dark room.
At one end of this room, twenty feet
away, ls the apparatus, consisting of
an electric lantern on the front of
which is a revolving disc containing
a number of segments of glass, each
ln a varying shade of red, green,
yellow, purple or blue, as well as
white, all colors employed by the
railways ln their signals. The examiner switches on the light and
turns the disc, requiring the man to
name the colors displayed as the
segments pass before the lens. In
turn, small red, green, yellow, pur-
plo, blue or white circles of light, ln
varying shades, singly or ln combinations of two or three, become
visible. "What are they?" asks tho
examiner. "White—blue and red-
light green and dark green," says
the applicant, end so on, naming tbo
5'S, >s
colors as he sees them.
These wool and lantern tests reveal to an astonishing extent the
prevalence of color-blindness. Fully
four por cent, of the applicants are
color-blind without knowing It and
will not believe It when the examiner gently but firmly points out the
fact. As It Is, of course, vital that
all men whose positions Involve or
might involve the leading of signals
and all applicants for those positions
should have an accurate color-senae.
no color-blind person has the slightest chance of passing.
The number of men, applicants
and employees, examined on a system so enormous as the Canadian
Pacific Is.very great. Approximately nine hundred appenr before the
examiners every month on tho lOast-
ern lines alone, and between 13,900
aud 16,000 employees on the Eastern
lines come up for re-exnm!natlon
every two years. The figures for
Western linos are approximately the
It wlll readily be understood that
the entire system would be disorganized if these men, many travelling long distances, hnd U> report to
tbe offices of tbe Chief Examiners
for their tests. The Canadian Pacl-
fio therefore retains two special
cars, one of tbe Western and one on
tho Eastern lines, which are specially fitted us travelling-test room*
and aro continually on the move. It
takes these cars two years to make
the round of the stations within their
jurisdiction, examining applicants
and tho employees of tho company.
So, year In and year out, the Canadian Pacific continues these exhaustive tests which have as their object
the maintenance of safety and efficiency.
