A letter read from MrB. MacLach-
lan, secretary B. C. Women's Institutes, in reference to several Important matters brought up, the
chief being that Portland, Maine, It,
nt present, the National Port of our
Canadian National Railways, in
spite of the fact there are two Canadian Atlantic ports, namely St. John
and Halifax whose harbor facilities
are without ipeer In the warld. Instead of these ports being used, a
large portion of the grain of Canada is shipped through United States
ports, therefore, the following- resolution has been suggested:
"Whereas is has been impressed
on the Women's Institute of British
Columbia that if the Dominion of
Canada is to reach the zenith of its
power as a Nation within the British Empire, there must not only be
tlose and friendly co-operation

ernments, and Its civic and Industrial organization from one end
of Canada to the other, but as well
all must realize (hat the expansion
of the Dominion Is to a largo extent dependable upon tho development and utilization along economic
-lines, of Its natural, resources and
potentialities in preference to those
of foreign lands; and
Whereas the ocean ports of Canada, particularly these that are open
throughout the entire year, and cap-
tillo of functioning in all seasons,
constitute ono of the most potential
of the Dominion's resource Band pos-
less Intensely grand opportunities
for tho building up of Canada and
for strengthening tho arm of the
British   Umpire;   and
Whereas tho progress and devol-
opmnt of certain 'Canadian ports of
Toniinonre are being delayed because of tho fact that Canadian
freight that should pass through
ihem, nnd which thoy are capable of
hand ling, is being shipped trough
foreign ports; therefore,
Resolved that Iho Women's Institutes throughout Canada be requested to urge upon their own members,
upon the federal and provincial
members of parliament, heads of
transportation companies, press and
commercial organizations In their
respective localities, to use their influence In securing the development
and utilization of the ocean ports
of the Dominion of Canada's commerce in preference to foreign ports,

Throw. Away The Crutches
On lhe eve of the presentation of the Budget at Ottawa each year lho
presa of lhe country, and notably in the manufacturing cities of the Easl. ls
filled with predictions ot dire disaster thai will overtake the country If there
is any lowering in Customs duties through which protection Is afforded certain Industries. This year was no exception lo the rule, the manufacturers
ot agricultural Implements and machinery being lhe most outspoken.
- While it is only human nature that these manufacturers should light to
Ihe lasl ditch to retain any and all advantages they enjoy, nnd which are calculated lo add to the value of their plants nnd Increase their profits, nnd admitting thai they are only doing whal any oilier class would do, II Is in the
nalional Interest llial such claims ns are advanced by them should be fully
examined In the light of actual facts.
It>. a recent article In tills column figures were given showing ihal in 192::
Canada Imported coal from lhe United Stales to a value of over $100,000,000,
and iron nnd iron products lo a value ot $152,854,000, both largely Imported by
manufacturers, whereas during the same period lhe value ot agricultural implements nnd machinery Imported from across lhe line only amounted to
The manufacturers feel aggrieved because of these $11,731,856 ot importations and contend lhat II the tariff was only made high enough these
goods would be shut oul and replaced by Canadian-made articles. They
blame the inadequacy of the tariff from their standpoint for tills loss of
II is Interesting, therefore, to note that In this same year Canada exported
farm implements and machinery to a value of $8,187,492, Tin- Canadian
manufacturers were able to sell lo this extenl in foreign markets In which
they were not protected by tariffs, bul in spite of tariffs levied against Ihem
anil ia open competition wiih the whole world including the United Stales.
In other words, Canada's imports of rami implements nnd machinery
from the United Slates were only $3,334,361 In excess of exports, which goes
to show lhat the Canadian manufacturer of these implements lias mighty
little ground for complaint.
However, If these manufacturers have good reason to complain, as they
claim they have, then whal Is to be said lor the farmers of Canada in the
lighl of lhe following figures? Imports of agricultural and vegetable products tor the twelve months ended February lasl amounted to ?IS"».Sll,(iSS
nnd of animal products $46;227,013, a total of $282,088,761. Why should the
farmers of Canada make the importation ol these farm products prohibitive,
thereby securing the whole Cauadiau market to themselves even ihough by
so doing the cost of living for every artlzau nnd laborer In the Dominion was
substantially Increased?
But what would the nmmifiicliiror say to such a policy which would compel him to further Increase the already high wages lie Is obliged lo pay his
The Canadian fanner, however, makes no such demand. All he asks
is a free field, a free market, and no favors, lie is prepared to face the competition of lhe whole world, relying on ids own industry and the fertility or
Canada's soil to win out. He Is asking tor no artificial props to hold htm
up. but he does ask Ihal the restraints, the handicaps, Ihe shackles now imposed upon him he removed. With these out of the way he lias no tear for his
own future nor for lite future of Canada.
Why cannot the Canadian manufacturer be as self-relianl ns the C'ana-
tli.in runner? Can he nol, through the exercise of his own energy and initiative, the skill of Canadian artlznns and workman whose service's are so
much In demand in lhe United Stales, and lhe greal wenlrti of Canada's
natural resources lying right at his door anil only awaiting development,
succeed equally as well lu capturing his fair share, not only of the domestic
trade ot Canada, but of the trade of the entire world?
or course the manufacturers could do It If Ihey only would. The (rouble
wllh Ihem Is that Ihey have so long relied upon crutches provided for Ihem

"For eight years 1 suffered from despondency and ncivousncss.
Sometimes I could not sleep at

Municipal Hospitals
Rural Hospitals In Alberta Operated
At a Low Average Cost
During tho past four years, according lo figures prepared by A. K. Whis-
ton, superintendent of hospitals for
Alberia. Ihe rural municipal hospitals
system has cared for a total of 21,112
patients, at tlie low average cost per
case of approximately $16, based on
operating COSt8,      Tlie period covered
is from 11)20 lo 1923 Inclusive.
During the four years mentioned Ihe
rural municipal hospitals of the prov
Inee of Alberta system uol only eared
for the total of patients as slated, but
also provided, in addition io lhe ordinary hospital services, a total of 1,470
major operations and 3,123 minor
operations, nnd had a tolnl of 3,012
maternity|ciises. In 1920 there-were
but tl hospiluls operating wllh a lotal
of 100 beds. Today I hen' are 15 hospiluls wllh a lotal ol 2TT beds.
In 1923, lho rural hospitals were
operated al the low average cost per

affect any nerve of the body. Different names are given to It when il afreets certain nerves. Thus neuralgia
of Hie sciatic nerve Is called sciatica,

When you bui'd up the Impoverish

"Some years ago I wns attacked wllh

Heavy Grain Movement Necessary
Says Canada Must Export Million
Bushels of Grain Daily
It will be necessary for Canada to
export one million bushels of grain
per day between now and the lime
that the 1(121 crop will be on the market to clear the decks in readiness to
receive ihe new grain at the head ot
lhe lakes, according to N. M. Pater
son. one or Canada's leading elevatoi
Just what this will mean in transportation circles was shown by Mr.
Paterson when he stated that the
average amount of grain handled per
day during the shipping season last
year was but two-thirds of what would
have to be handled this year in preparation for lhe arrival of the new
crop, resulting In a great deal ol
business activity during the coming
season at the hend of the lakes.

Larger Wheat Acreage
A'lbert3 Farmers to Increase Their
Crop Acreage This Year
According to statements to grain
men at Calgary by runners in Alberia,
It is lhe Intention or many ot the latter to Increase considerably their crop
acreage this year. In ono case one
farmer lutends putting an additional
700 acres under wheat cultivation.
Owing to the exceptionally large
crop In lhe province of Alberta lasl
year nnd lhe excellent weather during the fall which permitted the farmers lo haul their grain to thc elevators, considerably less ploughing was
done, particularly in the north country, as compared wllh 1923. In the
soulh, however, more work was done,
as the crop generally was got off

would certainly have been far In advance of that of the United Slates In

j was several decades later before
there was a dream of ono crossing

of tho country, but also transcontinental roads of lhe highest type. In
1820 lhe United States had less Hum
a quarter ol a million people west of
the Mississippi itlver, whereas we

four western provinces. Even as

same population as Nova Scotia,
(hough eighteen times as large. It
the former were as thickly populated
as the hitter, It would have 9,000,000
people, as many as In the whole ot
Canada today.
Though we have no such cities as
our neighbor's largest ones, yet wo
can already see ledications of their
problem ot city congestion beginning
to loom up. Montreal nnd Toronto
have each five limes as many people
as New York had In 1820. One-tenth
of the Americans live in their three

ours are in our two largest. More
than a quarter of theirs are In cities
of 100,000 or more, of which there are
sixty-eight, and one-half are in places

Dewdney's Three Standard
Dewdney conslituoncy is ready for
the battle of ballots on Friday, June
211, when in nil human probability tho
citizens will have provorr their claims
to democracy and said truly who
shall -press their Interest In the provincial legislature.
Never before was there such call
to weigh every interest and at every
angle, not, Indeed, so much that
flaws may be found in any of the
throe candidates but simply that the
host choice will be made for tho riding us legislator, Messrs. Maxwell
Smith, Harold ft. Smith (by the way,
not at all related) and John A. Cath-
erwood may well severally bo a party
choice. Featuring these In the order
of their nomination:
Mr. Maxwell Smith of Deroche has
has lived there for some yenrs, removing from Central Park where he
long dwelt to fulfill duty as school
trustee, grocierterist and editor—in
the kilter role for years of the Fruit
and Fnrm journal. Before going to
Doroche Mr. Smith was fruit Inspector for the provincial government. We first met Mr. Smith in
1905 when he was one of the leading school trustees of the valley; a
veritable giant educationally and a
man that was at once friend and a
man among mem.
Harold It. Smith of Port Coquitlam is one of the Fraser Valley's
bright, thoughtful and most depend
able business men, who counted for
doing things by "big talk" would
not be noteworthy, but ns one who
weighs the pros and cons and acts
on evidence and principle, he takes a
front rank. Mr. Smith was twice
the choice of Port Coquitlam for alderman, and even urged to stand for
mayor. He is the leading member of
tho very large and well established
electrical firm of Smith, Robinson &
Co., engineers. Those who know Mr.
Smith best admire his sterling character.
Mr. J. A. Catherwood, again the
unanimous choice of the Dewdney
Conservatives, has a reputation for
straightforward, conscientious, loyal
representation. In and out of the
House, Mr. Catherwood has dealt
with mon as such. In him an* opponent is entitled to British fair play,
and lhe representative in his practice, as well as, claim should first
and last represent those who elected
That Mr. Catherwood has thc en-
tiro confidence of his constituents is
evidenced in his being again unanimously the choice, and, naturally,
nil his friends arc confident he will
top the poll.
As between tho three candidates
the citizens alone wlll be both judge
and jury.

Annual Production of Seventy
Million ilnlhrs Worth of Unique Material.
A tpromfuenl lumber Importer
standing on the floor ot the London
Timber Exchange—tbe .greatest
wood buying centre in the world
said: "There nro no substitutes for
tho timber ot British Columbia."
Tho present magnitude nnd vast
possibilities of lhe great lumber industry of British Columbia should be
a matter of pride and interest to
ouch and every ono of Us citizens.
It should ho acclaimed by Ihem ns
no loss priceless nn asset than this
province's wonderful climate and unrivalled scenery, indeed even In these
two possessions British Columbia's
forest glory is nn nil Important adjunct,
Tho status of an Industry is determined by the supply of Hie raw material, the capital invested in its
manufacture and the value of the
product to the public.
Demand is for 80% Soft, Wood.
This province bus today between
$150,000.01)0 nnd $200,000,000 hard I
cash actually sunk in the conversion
of one of earth's most unique natural
resources into world wide necessities o ftlio highest grade.
The truly fortunate position of
British Columbia as a forest area Is
tor realized when two comparatively
unknown facts are brought forward
and emphasized.
Firstly: That less than one-third
of the world's lumber supply is soft
wood and, secondly, that the demand
for soft wood is four times as great
as that for hardwood.
Between a fifth and a quarter of
tho whole area of British Columbia
is forest land, to bo more precise 50
million out of 226 million acres. This
huge territory contains half the soft
wood in the Dominion, one-third of
the British Empire's total supply and
about one-ninth of all the soft wood
on the surface of the globe.
It must be borne in mind that the
species indegenous to British Columbia are not the smaller and common
conifers of Europe and Eastern Canada, but woods of outstanding properties such aa the imperishable Red
cedar, tho unique aeroplane spruce
and that king of all soft woods,
Douglas fir. Ail of these trees represent tho most desirable qualities
that soft wood can possess.
Continuous Supply Assured,
Wo are assured on the authority
of our forest authorities that the
annual growth of our timber exceeds the cut, and with proper care
it is safe to assert that a continuous
supply of our forest products will be
available to our posterity. What
Sweden has done for a thousand
years in maintaining her timber
lands British Columbia can do also.
So much for the raw niatreial' and
its valuable properties. The enormous Investment referred to above
maintains no less than 3,000 firms,
large and small, directly engaged In
the manufacture nnd distribution of
forest products of the annual value of
$70,000,000. Theso concerns are
numbered as under:
442 Sawmills, box mills, cash and
door plants, etc,
95 Shingle mills.
6 Pulp and paper mills.
2640 Logging camps (including post
and tie).
208 Lumber    wholesale exporters,
dealers and timber brokers.
13 Forest products    manufacturing firms.
205 Wood yards.
A total of 3000 firms handling British Columbia forest products exclusively.
Theso figures show where the British Columbia logging and lumber
industry stands today and with the
encouragement of fresh capital and
a policy ot preservation of our tlm-
bor resources the future years should
see an expansion of great extent
lending to thu population Increasing and wealth of thc citizens of British Columbia.

Marie Corel!! is dead at the age of
60. Since 1886 Bhe has held her public in spite of the critics. They would
have crucified her at the outset of
her novel writing career for without
exception they condemned her .first
effort, but instead of that they made
her. They derided hor book, "The
Romance of Two Worlds" nnd they
declined to believe that any such
'HnS as Marie Corelll existed. It
was, they said, the non-de-plume of
a man, perhaps Hall Caine. No woman could havo written the book,
hut edition after edition was printed
and quickly snapped up while not
'. dozen people In England knew the
Then along In the same year came
"Vendetta" to give more pabulum
to the press and to the public.
"Barabbas," published in 1893
made the world wonder. Clergymen
from the pulpit, had to reaffirm that
U:Uas'an,l not Judith was tho actual
betrayer of .Tesus. Mayors and councillors nnd library committees everywhere disputed whether this author
thould not, as to her books, be publicly burned at lhe market cross, but
common sense prevailed and she was
allowed to remain in most libraries.
And she certainly was sought after
and read.
But the "Sorrows of Satan," two
/oars later, revived tho controversies
vitli ten times the energy and longer
faces, only to make Marie Corelli's
'nine international and tho world hor
public. It ls a little difficult for us
In those days to take in Iho attitude
of the press and the long faces of
mly a short generation ago, towards
he novels of Marie Corelll and to
ittempt any explanation would require u lecture. Today she ls read
with pleasure and we venture to nf-
flrm that her vogue will last longer
than did thnt of Fanny Barney who
In her day also made tho vogue,
"The Mighty Atom" published
after tho "Sorrows" nearly upset
.Miss Corelli's fame. It Is n gruesome
tale and not true to life in general.
One rends It shudderlngly. Still the
public scrambled for the book and
although for n time banned tlie libraries, It gradually came to be accepted for Its moral.
Since the beginning of the pres
ont century Marie Corelli's public
has dwindled; not exceedingly so,
but gradually. She has still, however,
a large following, mostly of people
who read hor before and take pleasure In a second reading.
She hated all men but one: Shakespeare: and to show her admiration
for him" she retired to Stratford-on-

the present political machines and taxation. A vote for the Provincial Party Candidate-
Mr. HAROLD R. SMITH-will be the first step in the right direction.
As a resident among you in Dewdney, Mr. Smith's interests are your interests, and his
record is unquestioned, and you can safely trust him to fight the good fight for right.

closed eyelids, while l he so thoughts |
coursed ihrough his mind and. noticing j
hi i thoughtful mood, she said: "Mr
MacRae, you must have thought I was \
very rude to you when I met you on •
the trail tim liisi time? Vou See, I I
was really Afraid. I thought, alter I
all, lhat you might be one oi Lho 'horse t
rustlers,1 and I wanted to get away.
Vou did not look like one, but I was
not sure, even though you lold me you |
were ii scout, I am glad I did not
lei you come, for, I am sure, those
men would have shot at Us if you had."
"Mh's Frnser, 1 did not  think  that
you were rude ai all.    Hut, after whal
you had told me about 'horse rustlers'
being in the district, 1 was afraid lhat.
>ou wero running into great  danger.
I, even thou, would have followed you
had you not told me thai you would |
strike for homo from the direction you
followed.     When you did nut turn up I
at home, after a reasonable time had
passed, I fell sure then lhat you wero i
in trouble      Pul. I   did nol want  to
alarm your father and  mother with!
fears, that, alter all, mlghl be ground- j
loss,   especially   since   your    rather
thoughl   (hat   you  were all right   and:
would get hack before dark,"
"I nm used to riding alone along
the hills. 1 am never afraid ol danger, as it always seemed safe-until j
this time. 1 shall nol. feel so sale j
after tills; but still, horse thieves do,
not come around hero often." |
"Vour    mother,"    said  her  rather,]
"will nol allow you lo go oul  riding
after this.     Shu wns always worried
when you wero out alone in the evenings, and she wlll be worse after this."
"Do you think so, father'.' Mother
is reasonable and l am sure she will
not worry, if I am careful not to stay,
oul too late." ,
"Sllll, Mary, your mother is not always in favor of you riding so much j
on wild horses over a wild country,'
where you ate in danger of meeting
with accidents. Vou know she disapproves of you going around dressed
in men's clothes."
As if conscious for Ihe first lime of
her unusual attire, with a Hushed and
abashed expression on her faco, she
replied: "Vou know, father, that I
havo been acting so long as your,
chore boy and assistant, that I have!
become so used to these garments that
I wear them, naturally, as a matter
of course, it would bo very awkward
for me to do what I do on tho ranch
In long skirls, and, besides, I prefer
to wear riding brooches and boots
when I nm out riding: they are so
much moro comfortable and convenient. Of courst, Mr. MacRae, 1 do not
wear theso when I am at. home with
mother, t am then dressed like any
other girl."
"Miss Fraser, no inciter how unusual your riding habit; is, there Is
one thing about. It nnd, that Is, that
it cannot, conceal tho fact that you}
are a most elm'.ming young lady. It
cannot do that. Besides, in your circumstances, and your daily routine of
work that you have to follow in the
open, comfort and utility, as well as
becomlngness, is the main thing to
seek, and not tho conventional. I
think that your riding habit is both
suitable and becoming,"
■"Oh, thank you, Mr. MacRae, it is
nice of you to say thai." Then with
a pleased expressed on hor face she
arose, and commenced to count tho
horses in the band. When she had
completed her count, she found that
there were only fifteen horses alto-
gether, and she remarked to the mon
thai ono of them must have strayed
away, or was, perhaps, If ft behind j
with the outlaws. They counted the!
horses after her and confirmed her
conclusion. Thoy assumed that,
Ronald, in haste in cutting them loose,
must have overlooked one of the
bandits' horses. That would leave
them with one horse between the five
of i horn.
Preparations were now being made
to resume their journey homeward.
Put before ihey had their horses re-
saddled, Mary, in scanning over tho
prairie, caught sight of a detachment
of Mounted Police coming in their
direction from the north. They ac-!
cbrdtngly decided to awaii their arrival.
In a few minutes they wero within
hailing  distance,  and,  as  Mary  sig
nailed   them,   they   approached   at   a I
canter,    the man in command, whom ,
sin- cordially greeted as Sergt. Mel-
vtn, dismounted as he came up, and, I
taking her hand in both ids, : hunk it I
cordially, saying:  "Why, Mary, i  am
so pleased to see you sale and sound!

in for a bad time of it.     We started ,
as soon as we receiver! word  at  de- j

On rejoining lho group, Mary Introduced the Bergoanl lo Honald. As
they shook hands holh men~npi>riil»
od each other in momentary silence.
Then Sergt. Melvin said: "II Is a
pleasure to moot you. Mr. McRae,
Miss Fraser has jusl been lolling me
nil about her rescuo from lho bandits.. I congratulate you, young man,
upon your good luck, and your good
fortune, in accomplishing 11 so successfully. While we are nil glad to
have Miss Fraser back, safe and
sound and none lhe worse for hor terrible experiences, vol. we nny you
the part you took in her escape."
Ronald, though conscious of a certain amount of restraint in Hie presence of his courteous rival, was from
upbringing and training, equal to tlio
occasion, and replying with equal
courtesy lie said: "Sorg;. Melvin, I am
also pleased to meet you. It was by
mere good luck Hint I was present at
their home on my way south at the
time when Miss Fraser and her parents needed such assistance as I was
able to give them. It was a privilege to have been able lo do so. It
ls fortunate that we succeeded without meeting with serious results. The
part I played In her rescue was only
such as any man would have done under the same circumstances."
He was rewarded for his courtesy
by a pleasant smile from the young
lady herself.- She was interested in
their remarks as she listened to their
comments. The sergonnl then made
an appraisement of the horses In their
possession and gave Iftr. Feasor instructions to hold Ihem till the owners should come and claim (hem. As
to the horses belonging lo the outlaws,
he considered lhat they wore their
own legitimate prize. Unless some
law-abidinF citizen should come along
and claim them as his own. The
brands on them were of no Canadian
registration so far as known lo them.
He also warped them to hold themselves In readin iss In case they should
be called upon to give evidence
against tlie outlaws In case ot capture aud (rial.
After giving the police full details
of the location of the bandits' camp,
and a description ot lhe men, which
Miss Fraser was able to give very
minutely, they got ready for Ihelr
Hip home. Sorgt. Melvin monopolized Mary's attention during this time,
and assisted her in saddling her horse,
and making all 'necessary adjustments. After assisting her Inlo the
saddle, ho was overheard by Ronald to
say that he would be able lo sen her
again the noxl day, If all Weill well,
lie would then tell Ihem ns lo Ills success nt overtaking the outlaws. After
Ronald had rounded up lhe horses
nnd driven them on the trail lending lo
the north, they were soon on Ihelr
wuy, leaving the police behind at the
camping place.
During lho first few miles of I lie
trip, Ronald was busily occupied in
starting the loose horses on (he trail
and gotting Ihein inlo a steady pace
for tlie trip, Mr. Fraser and Mary
followed leisurely behind. This was
a diversion that suited his present
mood.     In lhe person of lhe Mount

be was allowed to hold a gun?
He held It up. shut his eyes, and
hang! It wont. off. but he had nol the
first Idea where the shot went lo.
Take aim, my boy. Look along the
sight and see where you nro shooting.
See If there Is anything lo shoot.
They say thero ls a tonibslono In
ono of Huiopo's royal cemeteries with
these words on it:
Good home*madei
bread is the finest
food on earth—the
one food that every,
body eats —that
everybody likes—
and that agrees with
"Hero lies a monarch who with ilm
besL of intentions, never carried
out a single plan."
And to make the aim .sure, and put
power behind it, there is need of a
long barrel, That barrel keeps Lho
shot in. Vim could have a lot of gunpowder lying around loose and put a
match to It and have a regular Fourth
of July blaze, but it would not do
much. But put a little bit of powder
behind a rifle ball and hedge that ball
In wiih n barrel, and bang! it goes
with terrific, power—a force strong
enough to go through a sheet of iron.
That Is why you go 10 rchool and
why you are taught, to obey, and why
you have to follow rules, and why they
drill you nnd put you under discipline.
It gives you power.
The free girl and boy Is not the ono
who can do anything he or she wants
to do. That if* not liberty, that is
license. The free girl and boy is the
trained one, and that means hard
work and effort and holding in, and
I knew a girl who used to sit at n
piano four hours a day, just lining
her fingers. Il wsa dreadfully tiring,
but you should have heard her play
after she gol lho power.
Don't you go growling aboul being
made to do this, lhat and the oilier
thing.     If yi.u were nol so made, you
would noVer do anything by-am!-by.

The production of steel ingots and
castings in Canada during the month
of February amounted to 70,953
tons, an advance of 72 per cent over
the 41,300 tons produced In January.
The increase was almost wholly accounted for by the rise in the quantity of open-hearth basic steel ingots made for the use of producers.
Canadian farm products exported
to the United States during February totalled $2,440,203, an increase
of $961,679 over February last year,
according to a report published by
the Bureau of Statistics. Wheat exports to the United States were
valued at $101,714 in February, as
against $25,167 in February of the
