"I nm going lo inquire," said Sir
Rider, "Into the possibilities of the
Hriiish empire, with reference to land
settlement and employment of ex-service men after the war. II is obvious
thai, (luring ihe turmoil and
conditions resulting from so great
Struggle, a large number of men will j
become dissatisfied with their former
employ mem.
"1 am going merely to Inquire and
report and to form my own conclusions from whal I see. That, I think,
is a useful work, since it is foolish to
put off such investigations iill the war
ends, when there would bo greal difficulty in dealing with (lie matter. Indeed, the problem of land settlement
is one which cannot lie tackled in a
hurry. My conclusions will be embodied in my report to ihe Royal colonial Institute, and perhaps in a book
on the landed and other resources of
Hie empire." Referring to the class
of war veterans who would go out lo
replenish lhe colonial empire, Sir Rider said: "Such men ns ate being considered as possible emigrants would,
of course, taken as a whole, be of the
very highest class, soldiers nnd sailors
who had been under discipline and
shown themselves lo posses the best
qualities of manhood. Any porl ion of
the colonies should be proud lo see
such men and their womankind arrive
as an addition to their population, and
I am quite sure many parts of the
empire will welcome Ihem. There is
another thing 1 am sure will resull,
thar. the empire will cease to be so
fond of admitting Germans and other
foreigners within its gales, and will
prefer  lo slick  to  Anglo-Saxons."

Walls of the Mines of Wieliczka Glitter Like Diamonds
In Galicia seven miles from (lie ancient city of Cracow around which the
warring Prussians and Russians are
light ing for supremacy, is located the
famous sail mine of Wieliczka.
The mine lias been actively worked
over since its discovery, almost seven
hundred years ago. Al the present
time the excavations reach a depth of
more than a thousand feet.
The descent into the mine is made
by shafts and staircases.   The latter,!
being   carved entirely   of rock salt, I
sparkle so brilliantly thai one feels nt
each slop us though he were treading
upon crystal glass.    Before    reaching j
lhe bottom of Ibis great cavern  ii   is |
necessary to travel over many of tiiese
beautiful stairways, for the mine
Wieliczka   is  divided   Into  Ihree  distinct compartments called fields: each
field consists of seven stories and ea
- up of several chambers.!
chambers are a bun*
a  hundred  feel   long j
and eighty feel  wide.    They are left
in the process of excavation, and when
any addition   is    required   il   is  buill I
witli salt  and  water.    Masses of salt
are piled one upon another and water
is thrown over them dissolving n por-l
Hon of lhe suit, which nils up the crevices.   When ihe water evaporates it |
leave:, u solid mass.   Columns of sail I
are left  to suppori  the roof.
As there are no springs nl so greal j
depth, the air is very dry. and everything is kept ill the mosl perfect slate
of preservation.
One of lhe largest chambers is used
as a ballroom where gayly dressed
men ami women gild over lhe smooth,
shining floor to the strains of Straus's
"Beautiful Blue Danube", waltz.
in another chamber the nobles of
Austria and Iheir friends sometimes
iiltend banquets. On ihese occasions,
when lhe light falls upon the walls,
ceiling and pillars, ihe Immense room
looks litis u palace curved out of aquamarine.
Bul Hie mosl wonderful thing in Hie
great salt mine of Wieliczka is the
chapel of St. Anthony, where the floor.
walls, ceiling, altar, niches, pedestals
and slalues are all of solid salt, yel
everything is so translucent that a
torch held behind one of the statues
shows light tlirougli Us thickest part.
When the chupe.l is lighted everything
in It sparkles us though si milled wiih
countless diamonds.���I.. O. Randall, in

for Great. Britain to operate iu New

Each of ihe four European powers
could hind 200,000 men every ten days,
while Japan, with her standing army
of 1.0(1(1,0(10 and her population over
71,000,000, all trained by tlie German
system, could operate from Hawaii

They had apparently married for

The I'esi of the parly consisted

out from all lhe rest by reason of his

"Girl! .Vow I shouldn't dure in call

I more  rapid   t..   growth,  more sturdy

then the cultivated  plants thai  Ihey

Adam Dickson, as long ago as  I7:i'>,
[said in his treatise on agriculture:
"W'dds are nourished by the same
food     thai     would     nourish     useful
.plants, und therefore when allowed
to grow along with them musl rob
them of pari of their food. Experience convinces the fanner of lhe
truth of ihis; for he finds lhal his
crop is had in proportion lo the
quantity and kinds of weeds wiih
wliicli  i,is land is Infested."
Some weeds terve as host plants,
for injurious fungi und rust, smut
and mildew, may be transferred
from Hum to useful plants. Weedy
stubbles are often a breeding ground
for cut worms, ilea beetles and other
insect plagues.
sheaves nf grain" containing any
considerable quantity of weeds are
difficult    In  cure,, and  are  frequently
'lhe cause of grain heating iu tlie
stack, bin or elevator, thus seriously
injuring its germinating power.
Weeds mean extra labor in cleaning
Hie threshed grain, and in some Instances il Is almost impossible lo
make a perfect separation wilh the
machines in common use. For Instance,   it    is exceedingly difficult to
I separate wild oats from cultivated
oats, or chess and corkle from wheat.
Darnel is difficult to separate irom
barley, etc.

In purchase seed grain from a
grower whose farm is generally full
of weeds, own It the particular Held
from which the individual sample
was obtained is clean, for there is
treat danger of weed seeds becoming
mixed through the use ol implements, machinery, etc.
Two incidents in my own exeprl-
enco will Illustrate ihis point, in the
autumn of ition, | \isited u farm in
this province, where I understood Ihe
owner made a specially of growing
seed train. I found one small patch
of about one-half acre which had
been hand-picked and was fairly
free of noxious weeds, lint every
other field on Hie farm was practically smothered with noxious weeds.
It   Is needless io slate Hint   I  did not
purchase any seed from lhal farm.
Again, in 1008, wisliins to purchase
a large quantity of seed grain for
the federal government, I Inspected
lho growing crop on a 2,000 acre
farm In lhe west. This farm. I understood, made a specialty of growing seed oals for ihe L'nlted Slates
market. On inspecting llic growing
| crop I found lite virgin soil of every
field had been broken deeply the
llrsl year, then disked and sown tlie
same season with flax, and Hie crop
showed tlm evil uf this practice.
There was not an acre of the whole
farm   hut     what    was   contaminated
! with  from  two  to  five  kinds of wild
! mustard,     There     was   certainly    a

H C ti e invest 11*1*111 in buildings and equipment coiiiu ctcd with the
liquor business, apart from the paid up capital and slo-.ks is 35
millions, In Vancouver alone I'm told ',000 people are employed
in connection wilh it. li the original purpo.*e of tlie invest enl 1 f
this 35 millions is destroyed it will readily be seen 1! e effect it will
have on o'.her investm tits: take Victoria alone, where there are 71
licensed premises, and at the presenl time quite 11 number of ordii -
aty inisiness ptemises vacant, Now, if yon add lo these va 'ant pre-
snises the 71 hotels, i-hotild Prohibition be enforced, il must hi o vi-
ons, to 1111 1 ne who can see 11 hole through n 'udder, theeffic: i will

the unemployment created by this I'n all 1 lolmbilitv Iheie nre not
less than [,000 people engaged in t ie v.'ion- h itels, Ij.ars a id breweries receiving from >S.*, to $100 a 111 mtli pause for a in .-ment and
think ol tiie little avenues of irade tins 83 to too thousand dollars
a month pis��es thro, say the gro.ei, butcher, baker, clothier, coil
dealer, laiiiidrymin, etc. With all du. respect to tlie: Rev. Ris:h-
lager he cannot p ran ide me a.s a matter of common sense that Victoria ''in lose lhe wit Is of this spending power each month in lhe
year ami still be unaffected. The net conclusion cf the whole
thin is that ii is u'.'e Iv impossible to turn lown one iuditdtry
without bringing other industries to grief also; these conditions
apply not only to the various large centres, but also to the counttv
districts. Wot's more lhe quielude which would result from Prohibition seei ig th it wc have none of those beaut'fal ftnglish singing birds such as the Nightingale blackbird Skylark and Thrush,
would be sa 1 and depressing, so much so th it 1 should nol lo e any
time in b okiug my passage to dear old England, where t could not
only have a glass of hottest beer at me of those nice old country
inns, but also earn a living nt my ago, because lhe door to free
trade will be locked after the war is over.
Clouting now to the point raised by his Reverence as to whether
beer is a poison, ,111! not a food ,1*1 well .1* drink While alcohol 25
years ago was considered a poison lhe greatest living scientists today
say that it is nol so, nnd the medical advisers of tiie largest insurance companies in the United Slates give the standaid as one and
oue-h rl 'Unices ot alcohol a day, which is equivalent to 2 or ;, wine
glasses of sherry or port, a pint of claret or champagne and from 4
to 6 tumblers full of beer. A.s proof that it is a food peruse the
w rks of Professor \V. ]���'. Dixon, Cambridge University, M Due-
laux, successor to Pasteur Pa is Irs itute, and others I can name.
The most important of all is the story of the Prohibitionists

Prohibition wherever it has been tried has proved to be an economic disaster. In these circumstances I earnestly pray that my
fellow creatines will think the matter well over before joiniug the
force* of the Prohibition party. Remedial measures such as (i)
no treating, (2) foodstuffs as well as tea and coffee in the bar (3)
a specially appointed liquor control board will solve the problem.
