A bad acident occurred today just
before noon, when Tnra Sing, a
Hindoo, who has been running a
dairy farm here for about three
years, was taken to the hospital at
Chiliiwack suffering from a fractured skull. It appears that he was
driving a team of horses on the
cable hoisting hay into the barn
when the single-tree broke and flew
back with great force, striking Tara
Sing over the eye, crushing the bone
so that the brain was protruding
through the skin. The strangest
thing about the accident is that nfter I
the accident he got up nnd walked
to the house, though the doctor expressed the opinion that he could
not live. He was also conscious
when he arrived in Chiliiwack, and
was able to see a lawyer and attend
to his business affairs.
Tnra Sing is an elderly man and
lives on a large farm quite close to
Agassiz. He has one of the largest
herd of dairy cows in this district,
and has been shipping milk for
about three years.

Mr. and Mrs. Lovell and others
attended the Orange celebration at
Nanaimo, Saturday the 12th, and
report it as one of the most successful yet held. They went on the
C.P.R. "Princess Adelaide" with
1000 on board. Singing and dancing were indulged in, the music for
the occasion being supplied by the
72nd Kilties' Band, the 72nd Cadets and fife and drum bands. The
weather was all that could be desired. Reaching Nanaimo at 12 o'clock
Welcomed by the Nanaimo Lodges
headed by the silver cornet band we
were escorted through the town and
after lunch a grand-parade was formed at St. John's Ambulance hall,
headed by King William on his
white horse and the Nanaimo silver
cornet band. All the Lodges paraded through the principal streets
to the central sports ground, where
a varied programme of speeches and
field sports was carried out.
Music was furnished by thc various bands.
The celebration came to a close
with the Nanaimo band escorting
us all to the boat and playing until
we left the harbor. We arrived in
Vancouver at 9 p.m. tired but delighted with the day's outing.

Mr. W. B* Scott, of Dunedin, New
Zealand, who is visiting his sister in
Vancouver, was a guest at the
Poultrymen's picnic at the Dominion
Experimental Farm, Agasiz, Mr.
Scott has been a resident of New
Zealand for the past 4 years, and
one of the leading dairy and poultry
men, he being succesful in both. He
milks some 70 pure-bred Jerseys,
and keeps about 800 white Wyandottos. He is looking over the dairy
and poultry industry ,in B.C., and
being very much impressed with Mr.
Harry Sweutmun's pen of Rhode Island Reds on test at the Farm, expressed a desire to see his flock,
which he did, with the result that he
said they were by far the best he
had seen, and in New Zealand he
could get the hlghes market price
for such a strain. Ho advised Mr.
Sweatman to get in touch with thc
Now Zealand market at once, Mr.
Sweatman had just closed a big
deal in poultry, and is being repaid
for his zeal and perseverance in
working up such a strain.
The Rev. G. Turpin will be going
to Cultus Lake to assist the Rev. R.
M. Thompson with a boys' camp
there for ten days, commencing 30th

days in an organized camp — ten
days of instruction in camp craft,

ally Karmack wore tweeds over his
powerful frame and a bright tie beneath the collar of his flannel shirt.
Al that, he was a seasoned sour-dough
and a sharp trader, respected and
feared hy the natives.
"What do you Ihink's gol Into the
blood of tli-- breed all of a sudden?"
he asked.
"We've handed them too many
rifles, for one thing," offered Seymour
slowly. "But don't you worry, the
Mounted will get the deluded creatures In hand. Will you come with
us for a look nt the O'Malley scene?"
Karmack reached for his furs.
"If you don't," ho remarked, n severe note in his voice, "you scarlet soldiers won't be any safer than us traders. When I think of young O'Malley, one of the finest chaps I ever
knew, struck down hero at a police
posl "
A catch ln his voice stopped him.
Taking a battery lantern from a cup-
hoard beside the doorway, he signified
he was ready for the said inspection.
La .Marr led the way to the scene
or the crime—a stone hut half buried
in tin; snow. At the door he broke
lhe Jt.C.M.P. seal which ho placed
there before setting out on his futile
pursuit of the suspect.
"Nothing was disturbed, sir," said
the constable In a hushed voice.
"Everything Is as Karmack and I
found it when we came to investigate
why O'Malley did not return to thc
They stepped out of the gathering
dusk inlo a wlndowless room. The
roof was so low as to cause the shortest of Ihem k stoop The trader
pushed the button on his lantern and
raised it.
Across the cave-like room, which
was bare of furniture artcr tlie Eskimo
fashion, Seymour stared. There, ln
a silling posture on a sleeping bench,
was all that was mortal of the assistant factor.
In life, O'Malley had been a handsome youth of pionounced Irish type.
Sudden death had wrought so few
changes that the sergeant had difficulty in believing that he looked on
other than a sleeping fellow human.
A dankness, as of a tomb, served to
convince him.
The victim's head rested against the
back wall of the hut; his crossed feet
upon a deerskin floor covering. Clutched In one hand was a bbjck fox pelt.
Upon the sleeping bench beside him
lay one of sliver. Both looked to be
unusually fine skins. Presumably,
some dispute, over the price of the
prizes was the motive of the crime.
Karmack stepped closer with thc
light; Indicated by gesture a knotted
line of seal skin around the victim's
throat, the end dangling down over
his parkee.
"The Eskimo way!" muttered the
trader brokenly.
The shudder that passed through
Seymour's wiry frame was not observed by the companions of the Inspection. No more was It caused by
the untimely fate of Oliver O'Malley.
Complication Astounding
As to the silken kerchief to the
Latin garroter, so Is the Ugluk-llne lo
the Eskimo bent upon slrngulation.
Strong reason hud Sergeant Seymour
of Ihe Mounted lo realize lhe possibilities In the clutch of the'stout cord
made from the skin of a bearded senl
Although he had mude no mention
of the fact In Karmack's quarters,
when tim trader pronounced warning
lhat the. out'OMiand Eskimos soon
would be clutching for the throats of
the wearers of the scarlet, already
had Ihey clutched at his. The vivid
memory   of   his   narrow escape Inn!
brought  his Involuntary shudder ai
sight of Ine sinister drupe about
O'Malley's throat.
On Ihe farthest-North night of his
lasl patrol, he had elected lo sleep In
ii deserted Igloo on the skills of ii
village rather than suffer the stifle of
an occupied one. Alter midnight he
had awakened from a strangling sensation lo find himself In the hands or
two stalwart assailants. The knol
of a similar seal hide line was gripping his throat Hi' had I brown off
the pair only by an effort, so supreme
ns to leave him too weak to follow
Ihem through the snow tunnel Into tbe
storm. Probably he never would
know their Identity or be able more
than to guess at. their motive ns one
of fancied revenge.
Seymour did not speak of this now
as they stood in the liut.of tragedy.
No more did he mention the news llinl
slowly was filicrlng through the North
that Corporal boak, Three Ill.ver detachment of the Royal Mounted, and
factor Bender nf Ihe Hudson's Bay
company post had been slain In n
brutal and treacherous manner. Tn
spread alarm was no part of his policy. But over at the post was the
Ugluk-llne lhat had been used on him
anil In his mind was a vivid Idea of Its
practice In Eskimo hands.
From these—the fearsome souvenir
and the sUddoi'lng memory—he bus-
pecled that the O'Malley ense wns not
as open-and-shut as it seemed. For
him, mystery stalked the crime, one
that would not be solved by the apprehension of Avlc, the Eskimo.
silently, he completed his Immediate investigation ot the crime. Two
polnls stood oul to confirm the suspicion burn of his intimate knowledge
of the Eskimo garrotlng methods.
Upon the corpus delicti there was absolutely no mark except the sinister
purple rim nboul the throat and a
blood spot beneath the skin where the
knot In the seal Hue hud taken
Strangle hold. In the hut there was
no sign of a slrugglo such as he had
put forth tt. save himself In the Igloo,
nol a dent In the earthen floor or n
skin rug out of place. Vet, as he
well knew, O'Malley was n powerful
youth and of lighting stock!
"Let's have lhe facts—such as you
know."    The sergeant turned sudden
ly the Karmack.
"Dear eyes, 1 should sny you shall
hnve them—every one." relumed the
trader eagerly.
Despite certain mannerisms and his
unusual—for the outlands-fastidious,
ness of dress, Karmack was straightforward nnd exceedingly matter of
Word from native sources, It seemed, had reached the trading company's
store several days before that Avlc
was In from his trap line with fox
pelts "worth a fortune," according to
Eskimo-standards. He had borrowed
this hut In which they now stood ln
the outskirts of the lown from a relative and had sent the native for the
makings of a "party," or potlach. The
hunter himself had not appeared In
camp or senl nny direct word lo Karmack that he had fox skins for sale.
He had no debit on the books of the
Arctic comnany, so the reasonable
supposition of his aloofness was lhat
he meant to drive a hard bargain.
Skilled ln barter with, thc natives,
Karmack said he had countered by
betraying no Interest ln the arrival
of the aloof hunter. He had felt confident that, given time, Avlc would
run short of funds for entertaining and
market his catch at a reasonable figure. But, nt length, had come disturbing rumors over his native "grapevine." Avlc had heard, the rumor
went, that the Moravian Mission has
established a new trade slore at Wolf
Lake, near the big river—(he mighty
Mackenzie. He was exclled by tales
of high prices there and wns planning
to migrate to that market with his

"that I told O'Malley to mush over to
see this bird and talk him Into a gooT.
humor. Tho ycung chap had developed a knack at sign-language barter,
although he knew little Eskimo; I was
busy on a bale of furs at the store.
He was Just to persuade Avlc to come
Into the post where we'd come to some
satisfactory agreement as lo price for
whatever the 'Slum's traps had yielded.
"By gar, sir, two hours passed and
Oliver did not come back, nor was
there any sign of the hunter. The
mission shouldn't have taken him half
an hour, for all ln the name of reason
that the nallve could have wanted was
for us to come to him with an Invitation. I began to get anxious and
started out to se what was what. Meeting La Man- out front, I asked him to
come along villi me, still with no apprehension. We found what you
yourself have seen—exactly that and
nothing more."
He paused for a moment with his
cmollon, then: "Holy smoke, man, If
I had known what would eventuate, I'd
never have sent him but gone myself.
They're afraid of me, these confounded huskies, and I'd grown to love that
boy as a brother!"
"What do you know about O'Malley,
Karmack—how he came Into the territories—what he'd done ln the provinces—all that Bort of thing?" Seymour asked the disjointed question
seemingly satisfied with the other's
preliminary statement.
The trader was silent a moment,
"Not u great deal, come to think of
II," he said, before his hesitation had
become     pronounced.       "A     light-

Women you envy

You, too, may employ it to keep the
radiance and bloom of youthful skin
Radiant, with the charm of
youth still theirs, millions of
clever women arc admired—and
envied I—today.
Vet they have no difficult, hidden secret—no great gift.
Only this simple method—
which is for you, too. To give
you, as well, the charm you envy
in them,
Far nt week do thlt
Cleanse the skin regularly, au-
Volume and
produce 25c
quality for
thoritics say. to keep your complexion lovely, radiant, youthful.
But beware of harsh cleansing
methods. They injure skin.
Wash thoroughly with
Palmolive Soap—cacli night before retiring. Rub tlie creamy,
foamy lather well into thc tiny
pores. Rinse — and repeat thj
washing. Then rinse again.
Then—if skin is dry—apply a
little cold cream. That is all.
Skin so cared for is not injured
by cosmetics, by wind
and sun, or by dirt.
Thi simple, correct way
You cannot find a more effective beauty treatment. Because
Palmolive Soap is blended of
rare palm and olive oils—famous
for mild but thorough cleansing
qualities since the days of Cleopatra. And it is inexpensive, so
that thousands now use
Palmolive for the bath.
Make sure that you get
Palmolive — which is never sold
unwrapped. All dealers have it.
Get it, and try for one week this
simplest of all treatments. See
how delightfully and how quickly
it benefits your skin.

Britain's Sea Power
Admiral Stresses Need of Maintaining
Strength of Empire's Fleet
A warning to Canadians not to forget the value of sea power was voiced
by Vlce-Admiral Sir Frederick Field,
of His Majesty's special service squadron, during an address at a banquet
given In his honor at Victoria.
The people were sick or spending
money, he admitted; sick of high
taxation and debt; and in thinking
of these things often forgot the great
truth about sea power which applied
to the British Empire end Its Integrity
more than to an; other power in the
world. "It would be Impertinence on
my part to attempt to Influence this
Dominion," Sir Frederick said, "but I
feel justified In asking Canada If she
thinks she is safe, If her overseas
Hade Is safe, and wlll be safe ln war
Thinks Swearing AU Right
Yes, providing the provocation
equals the offence of Jones stepping
on Smith's sore corns. For better to
use "Putnam's" Painless Corn Extractor, It does lift out corns ln a hurry.
No corn can last If "Putnam's" is applied. Refuse a substitute, 25c everywhere.
Pacific Coast Fisheries
During the firs', three months of this
year the Canadian fisheries on the
Pacific coast , produced 73,352,000
pounds of fish food, valued nt $1,795,-
000. Iu quantities, the largest catch
was herring. Six hundred and fifty-
seven thousand pounds of these fish
wejie .netted during lhe period.
Soft corns are dllllrull to eradicate,
but llolloway's Corn Remover will
draw them out painlessly.

Swedish Invention
For Motorists' Comfort
Automatic Beacon Light Gives Warning At Railroad Crossings
Stimulated by the rapid motorizing
of Swedish highway traffic, native engineers have patented three Inventions for the comfort and safely of motorists. These are an automatic beacon light for glvlrg warnings at railroad crossings, an automatic slot machine for refilling gas tanks, and a device which prevents the accidental
running out of batteries.
The crossing beacon consists of a
Hashing light In a cylindrical lantern
with red and white sectors in opposite
quadrants. When the railroad ls
clear tho white lights so Indicate to
the highway tralllc, but when a train
approaches the lantern rotates automatically showing a red light to tho
highway and a white light to the
This beacon wlll work under unfavorable conditions of snow and Ice.
The automatic gasoline vendor can
be utilized by the customer at any
time of night and day by connecting
the tube wltii the gas tank of the car,
dropping a kroiia ln the slot, and operating a lever. The quantity of gasoline received naturally varies according to the market price, which can be
quoted at the minimum, owing to the
saving of wages for attendants.
The attachment which automailcal-
ly cuts off lho batteries when the engine ls stopped Involves the principles of suction and gravity. It Is
essentially a switch system which ls
connoctcd with lho gas intake or tho
lubrication pipes so that tho suction
actuates a weight that rises and closes
the electric circuit. When lhe'suction stops, tlio weight falls and throws
Ihe switch open.

The Provincial Election just over
saw the trial of a system for the
first time whereby any who happened
to be out of their ridings could register their votes where they happcn'd
to  be. ,    ,   .
The Idea probably had its ori-
gen in the time of the great war,
when thousands of our worthiest
citizens were doing duty in thc
Trehches and so might well be ul-
lowetl this privilege. TThese men
eoultl not get home to vote, yet they
were as interested and worthy citizens as any found ut home, and it
might be the Inst and only chance tha
many of them would have to do duty
nt  the  ballot  box.
Toduy no such condition or
circumstance exists. There is no
analogy between thc men then nt
the front and those who today happen to he out of their Polling or
Resident District.
What of the system of Absentee
Voting ? We propose to view it
upon its merit, nnd, quite apart
from any Party and even without
suggesting blame for results of the
recent  Election.
It will be granted that every
citizen has the right to exercise his
franchise, and accordingly no impediment should be put in thc way.
The present system must fall of
its own weight.some of the reasons
for which being:—
(1) As the shrewd Yankee would
say, "All harness and no hoss." It
costs a big sum of money to get these
Votes a   few   hundred   causing
the expenditure of several thousand
dollars, and a further tax upon these
citizen. It has proved a powerful
lot of machinery for little result.
Nor  is   the   way   of   this   Absentee
Vote understood very evident in
so many of these Votes being found
There is the delay vexation of
waiting   a   month   to   hear   what
.".hould be known election day.
This is not saying anything of
the evils that may entail, and certainly docs not prevent the General
Public from thinking and saying that
there hus been manipulation. If
only suspicion, and there is great
cause for this in the Public mind
where a Candidate willbe a hundred
or more votes behind and in the
"Absentce'Vount put several hundred
in the lead of others.
It looks grave when any candidate
gets say 30 per cent of the Citizen
or Home Vote.and yet obtains GO or
more per cent of those who vote
away from Home. The thoughtful mind will struggle with the
question why most of the Citizens
nt Home are of one Political Faith
and those temporarily awny should
be overwhelmingly of different Faith
One can see how easy it is for
many minds to make accounting on
tiie score manipulation.
Then there is the matter of Right
and Justice   is  it right or just
that citizens at home in the riding,
ami paying their heavy taxes, expressing their decided wishes should
find thut those who have left antl
and in various lone ridings, scarcely
conversant if indeed caring for
home conditions, should he able
lo thwart their wishes and foist
upon them a choice or conditions
decidedly hurtful.
Surely the absentee vote has in n
single trial shown itself incompetent
ami Irrelevant, and a large measure
of evil. Surely, too, nil citizens,
whatever their political creed, will
call for the abolition of u system
that stands so severely and so generally to condemnation.

The forest indutries of British
Columbia contribute more to thc
upkeep of the Province tnnn nil the
other industrial groups put together.
The B.C. timberholders during the
Inst fifteen years have paid into the
Provincial treasury in ths shape of
royalties and rentals, the enormous
sum of $40,000,000, or approximate
ly one-fourth of the total revenue of
British Columbia for that period.
The timberholders' diioot payments towards the running; expenses
oi the Province in 1923 were more
ihan four times greater than thev
were in 1904, and almost twice as
great as in 1915.
In twenty years the receivs from
B.C. timber-owners have risen from
$450,000   to   $3,000,000
Many Forms of Taxation
Again the operating end of the
industry, represented by the loggers
and manufacturers of wood products, pays annually several millions
of dollars in income tax and other
form of Dominion, Provincial and
Municipal taxation. Heavy customs
duties on equipment, Workmen's
Compensation and other direct
imposts also enter into the cost
of manufacture of a product, the
price of which is not arbitrarily
fixed by the Producer but by the
actual Consumer in u highly competitive market.
Embarking in the Lumber Industry entails a big initial outlay and
tne menace of over-taxation is even
now actually diverting the entry of
fresh capital from BritishColumbia's
basic  industry.
Messrs. Arthur Matheson nnd
Vince Cockeriel had a head-on collision near the school house Wednesday evening. Fortunately no one
was hurt, the damage consisting o'
bent mud guards, broken lumps,

should be uprouched regarding this
corner, as the town line road at this
point is only wide enough for one
vehicle, and with the increasing traffic it is necessary to have this thoroughfare graded full width.

ends of Canada.
Our stay ashore was for some two
hours only but it was a delightful
perience. Docks, open green spaces,
streets of solid unbroken shop fronts
of brick and stone ; here an old
church with tower or spire j next,
the "bar," which forces all the traffic to wait turn in single file. This
is an old city archway on the main
Out in the country you realize
what is meant by "strange-familiar
scenes." Trim little plots before
rows of houses, humping little bridges, avenues of elm and oak, great
blossoming rhododendrons towering
above the neatly-clipped hedges.
Everthing so solid «tnd trim and
breathes of a home-loving people
with roots deep down in soil and
town. The workmen have an air
"that is different." Look at that
gang with trousers tied down below
their knees, or at our sturdy chauffeur who, on being asked wwhat was
the population of Southampton, said
"I don't know. We never consider
such a thing."
But here are names on sign posts
—Salisbury and Winchester—just
names, but full of meaning for myriads scattered overseas. But we
must hasten back aboard ship and
off again, once more with aeroplane
escorts, out to the seapath by Cowes
and Ryde on one hind and Southsea
and Portsmouth on the other, and,
to make good measure of interest,
forts in the sea (one of them a
myster tower), monitors and a
mothership for aeroplanes.
Not even the haziness, which contrasts so sharply with our sunny
welcome by English skies, has blurred the coast line. Past Beachy
Head and all the world-famed channel ports we have come through an
endless stream of shipping. It is
of all sorts, of at! nationalities :
here a great linur, there a rusty
tramp or a little sailing craft. Under
the sand by Folkestone a great battleship blends into the haze, while
nearer at hand a four-funnelled destroyer with knife-life bows, leaves
a creamy wake astern.

A Brighter, More Hopeful Outlook
So much has been heard daring the past two or three years about hard

States, etc., etc., that it is a welcome change to now read from week to week
of steadily Improving conditions nnil to note the more hopeful lone prevailing.
It ia undeniabl> true that during recent years times have been exceedingly

albeit at limes rather noisy.
The lido lias changed and is growing stronger, wllh lhe result thai thousands who emigrated to the United States are now comlug hack while the immigration of new people is Increasing, Unemployment has lessened and
continues tu grow smaller, and mercantile business, wholesale and retail,
shows steady improvement, Having heard so much lhat was discouraging
and indurlve of despondency in past months, lei us record u few facts revealing the presenl betterment wllh ail Ihelr significance lor continued progress.
The number nf business failures In Canada during lhe first three months
of Ihis year was 7S5, compared with 1,032 during the same quarter of 1923. and
liabilities were more lhan one million dollars less.
Loadings of freight cai's on Canada's railways during the first five months
of lhe year were nearly 100,000 greater than during the same months a year
ago, and railway earnings exceed those of a year ago by over three million
While building permits In lhe larger Eastern cities, noiably Monlreal and
Toronto, show decreases, lhe reverse is true in lhe West. Western permits
are more lhan (2,000,000 greater lhan al this same, period a year ago.
More than 150,000,000 bushels of Canada's wheat crop of 1923 was lnet-
ebaniable as compared wllh 389,900,000 bushels the previous year. Last
year's merchantable yield of oats was 585,000,000 bushels against 152,000,000
In 1922. According lo dala given mil at Winnipeg, Uie net value lo farmers
of last year's wheat crop, In lhe Wesl alone, belween September 1 nnd April
30, is more lhan 511,000,000 greater than the value of the previous crop. On
lhe oilier hand, crop conditions in lhe United Stales are less favorable than
I'or twelve years past, and wheat prices are on an upward trend. It.is confidently predicted Hint. Ihe Uniled States will be obliged lo Import larger
quantities of Canadian wheal tills year.
Despite, the outcry made by some manufacturers over lho recent tariff
changes, the Industrial siluallou is likewise Improving, The Ford Motor

Important Place ±3 Occupied
By   Canada  As   A   Heavy
Producer Of Gold And Silver
France's New President
To the end of 1823 Canada had produced over $512,000,000 In gold. The
prospect of rapid Increase in the present rale of production is good, nnd
Ihere is reason tu expect that Canada
will sunn become the second largest
gold-producing country In the world,
says the Mines Branch ol lhe Canadian Department of Mines.
Gold Is found In every province of
Canada, with the exception of Prince
Edward Island, und, In point of value,
noxl to coal, la ihe most Important
mineral product of the Dominion.
Present lndlontinns, Indeed, point to
tho possibility of the values of Canada's gold output surpassing even
Hint of her coal during the next row
The opening up ot tho Porcupine nnd
Klrklund Lake gold camps marked the
beginning or n new era In Ihe history
Of gold mining In Onlnrlo, which ls
now one of the Important gold-producing countries of the world. Though
the Hist productive operntlons at Porcupine date only from 1909, and at
Klrklund Lake. Ironi 1913, these two
camps had nt the end of 1923 paid out
In dividends ovor $31,000,000. With
nearly every producing mine Increasing both Its proved ore reserves and
Its milling capacity, and with a number of new mines rapidly approaching
the productive singe, the gold output
of Ontario, which, in 1923, amounted
to $20,000,000, should show a marked
Increase within the neitt few years.
Canada's total gold production in
1923 was a little under $25,000,000, of
which about 90 per cent, was produc
ed as bullion.
Silver conies second only to gold
among the metals produced In the Dominion, ln point of value of annual
production, and among the silver-pro
ducing countries of the world Canada
ranks third.
Developments at Cobalt have made
Ontario not only the premier silver
mining province of the Dominion, but
also one of the great silver-producing
countries of the world. To the end
of 1922, this nnd other Northern On
tnrlo silver camps have contributed a
total of about 325,000,000 ounces, or
nearly 11,143 tons of fine Bllver to the
world's stock. The maximum annual
production of 30,500,000 ounces was
reached ln 1911.
For many yean the silver output of
Brtilsh Columbia ranged between two
nnd four million ounces annually,
largely from silver-lead mines In thc
li^otenays, but In 1922 this was Increased to over 7,000,000 ounces, due
principally to the Increased production
from the Premier mine near Stewart,
In Yukon Territory rich silver-lead
ores which are now being shipped
from Keno Hill ln the Mayo district
give promise of a sliver production exceeding ln value the present gold production of the territory.

To lhe end of 1923 Canada has pro
duced over 450,000,000 ounces of silver.

Grievances of Long Standing
Saskatoon Paper Recalls Incident Of
Rlel Rebellion
Bearing the caption, "Cause for Re-
voU," the following editorial appears
in a recent issue of the Saskatoon
"Commenting on a recent article ln
the Star commemorating the anniversary of the battle of Batoche, a correspondent writes to say that In view
of western demands at the present
time It would not come amiss to consider what the rebels of 1885 stood
for, and what several of them died for.
"When Louis Rlel formed his provisional government at St. Laurenf
north of Saskatoon, that government
framed a Bill of Rights for Western
Canada, based on certain grievances
aud It is a matter of serious concern
that the two chief grievances of those
days are still tho Tying need of Western Canada ln 1924.
"Riel's government complained that
Western Canada was being treated as
an appanage of the east; that the natural resources were being exploited
by the east and that the east refused
the west access to the world's mar
kets through the Hudson's Bay.
"That was thirty years ago.
"Riel was hanged, rot because he
tried to get justice for Western Can
ada, but because hla impatience led
him Into hasty and Impolitic methods
of demanding Justice.
"The Israelites were In the wilderness for forty years before they atoned for their sins. ,
"There are a g.eat many people in
Western Canada who would like to
see the term commuted by a couple
of years."

Wllh the recent rains there must

the full-meaning of "the rain that replenished the earth." It ls only to

In the heart of man who finds his

In the soil wlll not bu labor ln vain.
To man nnd beast alike have come

with tho lush gr.;ss that follows In

they are the little sounding messages
of assurance thnt all will be well with

After but ten months' residence in
Canada two Mennonite farmers have
purchased two sections or farm lands
eight miles east of Ardsth, for $52,000.
The men are taking Immediate Joint
possession of th■ land, and wlll commence grain growing and dairy operations, The land was bought from
W. A. Stevens, of Bounty.
Abraham J. Warkentln and Holn-
rlch H. Penner came to Canada from
Russia last August, and since that
time have been located ln thc Wald-
helm district. Pinner had been professor ln a Russian training school for
teachers, while his companion had
been a blacksmith.
Through the agency of T. Nickel, of
Harris, and his brother P. Nickel, of
Waldhelm, the two settlers entered
upon negotiations with Stevens, who
possessed clear title to the property.
It was particular y desirable as It adjoins the Wilson farm which was sold
some weeks ago to a Mennonite syndicate for $270,000. Etch, of the men

been placed on the farm with a view
to establishing a high quality dairy

The land ls situated six miles east,
and seven mliet south of Harris.

Summer Advertising
Visitors Often Buy More Than They
Do At Home
There are some business firms that
make It their practice to lot up somewhat on their advertising In summer.
Sometimes they may argue lhat a good
many of their townspeople are away.
But If that is llr.) case, It Is also usually true that a good many visitors are
ln tho region at the time, and are
carefully looking over the newspapers,
and making such purchases of things
as they need. When people are away
on vacations, they have considerable
time which they can put In shopping,
and often buy more than thoy do at
home.—Kingston Whig.

Decrease In Wheat Yield
Canada Now the Second Largest
Producer cf Wheat
Information received from the
headquarters of Ihe International Institute of Agilcullure In Rome, Italy,
ls to the effect that there wlll be a
total decrease of 143,000,000 bushels
of wheat this year ln the crops of the
United States, India, Belgium, Bulgaria and Italy, compared with last
year's yield.
A feature of the United States June
crop report ls the sensational decline
ln the wheat production of the Pacific Northwest. In the Slates of
Washington, Oregon, California, the
estimated production of wheat Is 42,-
000,000 bushels against 76,000,000 last
year. This would Indicate an opportunity for larger Canadian shipments
to the Orient.
The present prospects are that Canada will again have a large surplus of
Its wheat crop for export this year.
The acreage sown to wheat In the Dominion this year Is slightly less than
ln 1923. Canada Is now the largest
wheat export producing country ln the

Can war be abolished ? Ia it Christian to believe
that war must be tolerated as a necessary evil ?
The Rev. G. Turpin will discuss these questions on
Sunday, July 27th, at 7:30 p.m., in the sermon "The
glory, horror and futility of war."
oauaaa s fisheries production during 1923 is estimated to be worth
140,000,000. At the beginning of
the year it was not thought that
anything like this mark would be
reached, for the Fordney tariff had
cut deeply into exports to the United
States. But as the year wore on the
demand and prices generally improved, thus giving fishermen along
the Atlantic coast especially a much
better price.

Official figures recently issued
show that the Dominion of Canada
is the greatest single contributor
to the wheat supply of the world.
She stands second only to the
United States in automobile exports.
Her flour exports are far ahead of
the palmiest war years and are rapidly gaining in the foreign markets.
Canada's mineral, forest, agricultural and fisheries industries ar*
now valued at $2,420,000,000, or
$262,000,000 higher than a year ago.
British immigration during the

United States was 17,282, compared
with 18,982, a decrease of nine per

Stolen Eggs and the Silk Trade

■ Canadian Paelfle allk special pass Inn tkrotjajh the Rockies.
Production of silk dates far Into antiquity, and for
ages the manner of Its production was kept secret
Up to the slxtb century A.D. all raw silk was Imported
into Europe from China, but tbe Byzantine Emperor
Justinian Induced two monks to travel Into China to
procure silk worm eggs and though the export of them
was punishable by death, these monks succeeded In
bringing back a quantity concealed In the hollows of
their pilgrims staves.
From Byzantium, silk cultivation spread Into Greece
and Syria, thence into Spain, and thence successively
Into Sicily, Naples, Northern Italy and France, being
established In Italy In the sixteenth century.
Various determined attempts have been made, principally between tbe years 1622 and 1839 to establish
the silk Industry ln America, resulting at one time In a
not Inconsiderable production, but the excessive cost
of the labor Involved ln the rearing of the worms and
ln the reeling of the raw silk from the cocoons as compared with the trifling cost of such labor In Europe
and Asia, has rendered It Impossible to produce raw
•Ilk at commercial prices on this continent.
Most of the silk Imported to America comes from
Japan, Italy and China whoro, also, the humidity of the
atmosphere contributes no little to the success of the
Industry in those countries, The greatest importation
Is from the Flowery Kingdom, and this mostly In the
raw-silk tana as tt Is rooled from the cocoons,
Silk Is valuable. In one consignment of a few hundred bales, hundreds of thousands of dollars are tied
up, and for this reason, that no time may be lost In
making up the raw material and placing the finished
goods upon the market, the product of tbe little sHk
worm Is given transportation facilities which few other
commodities enjoy. The bales of skeins are stowed
carefully ln the vessels which transport them across
the Pacific, and ln such a manner that they can lie
speedily and safely discharged upon arrival at the
Canadian- or American port. No time Is lost Special
trains made up of passenger baggago equipment await
the arrival of tbe vessel M It docks at Vancouver as do
the Empress liners of tho Canadian Pacific, and once
the valuable cargo has been sealed Into the cars the
train proceeds towards Its destination, often making
better time than the regular passenger trains.
For the reason that tho route hi more direct, many
silk dealers in New York, where much of the silk Is
destined, consign their shipments via Canada and during the past few months many Interesting tlmo records
have been made over Canadian Pacific lines.
On March 22nd, tbe "Empress of Asia" sailed from
Yokohama carrying the largest consignment of silk to
be forwarded from the Orient for some time. The silk
was specially stowed for prompt discharge on arrival
at Vancouver! and from tho time the steamor docked,
until the special train to New York lqft, there was a
lapsed tlmo of only thirteen and one-half minutes per
The silk was delivered ln New York about midnight
April 4th, tbe through time from Yokohama to New
York being 18 days, 8 hours, and 13 minutes, calendar
time. This constituted a record run as far as freight
traffio is concerned, hut passenger traffic Is bandied
as readily by this company, • 21 day Europe to Orient
