Critics Counfounded by
Public Accounts
Sound Security Held for Delayed Payments to Government, aud Interest is Good.
Victoria, B. C—Much has been
heard ot late from critics of the administration ns to the exhaustion of
governmental revenue and the hazardous condition of public affairs
genernlly in conseo,uoncc.
Happily the prophets of pessimism
do not appear to be well supported
by the unimpeachable evidence of the
Public Accounts which the Minister
of Finance, as is his custom, presented to the house at Its opening.
These Bhow the revenue for the fiscal
year ending March 31 last to have
been $12,510,215.US, with nn escess ex
pendlture of $8,139,799.32, largely accounted for in the circumstance .that
prevailing conditions in the money
market have delayed the collection
of large sums due to the government
on account of land sales, etc., tor
which accounts the soundest security
is held, and interest at a profitable
rate being received during the period
ot given grace.
GAIN IN INTEREST
Every good man of business wlll
recognize the policy herein indicated
—of not unduly pressing good customers in hard times—a wisdom tbe
more strongly emphnsized in the fact
that interest earnings of the government are at n considerably higher
rate than the government is obliged
to pay for money ponding collections
owing to the most satisfactory con
dition of the Provincial credit. The
fiscal year closed with a money creh-
It balance aggregating 14,429,844.00.
Of the revenue total of $12,510,215
.1,723,990.60 was obtained under the
Chinese Restriction Act, 12,344,596.52
was from land sales throughout the
Province, and (1,939,457.18 from timber licenses. The amount of tbe Dominion subsidy for ihe year was (732
489.46, while J155.163.36 was from
mineral tai.
TIMBER ROYALTIES LAROE
Timber royaltie( for the year
brought to the treasury 1517,672.19,
while registry fees aggregated $712,-
258.43, land revenue amounted to
$301,184.95 and an additional sum of
$22,053,48 was obtained from the; survey fees.
The revenue tax for the year waa
$360,663.00, the real property tax was
$459,570.44, and the personal property
tax $197,790.44. The land tax including the taxes on wild land, coal and
timber lands, aggregated $546,037.20
uud tbe royalty on coal brought
$302,225.35. Under tbe heading of
miscellaneous receipts which amount
to $290,457.71, a sum of $100,136.60
was obtained from fees under the
Motor Regulation Act, while $135,800

Ford Approaches Per-
petual Motion
Hybrid Gas and Steam Engine for
Power Plant is Remarkable!
Henry Ford's recently announced
plan for dividing $10,000,000 in pro-
tits annually among his thousands of
employees has aroused widespread in
terest among the general public.
Varying opinions have been expressed
as to the wisdom or practicability
of this policy, which has been characterized ln maoy quarters as visionary and Utopian. Ever since he
jolted about Detroit in his first prim
itive experimental automobile, Ford
has been a dreamer who makes his
dreams come true, and he is not
likely to worry very much over being called visionary at this late day
Indeed, It Is exactly this daring
quality of Imagination which has
been responsible for his remarkable
success.
Almost at the same time that Mr
Ford announced his unprecedented
profit-sharing plan he startled tbe
engineering world ln a manner less
spectator
spectacular, perhaps, but quite as
revolutionary from a scientific and
mechanical standpoint. He Is preparing to spend a million dollars on
what will come as close to a perpetual motion machine as the theoretical progress of modern science
permits. The perpetual motion inventor tins been n standing joko for
generations— but here comeB Potd
with a practical application of at
least part of the will o the-wlsp ol
mechanics, and what Is more ho hns
placed a millions dollars worth of
contracts to embody his dream in
thc brick and stone nnd iron and the
steel of a gas engine-electric power
plant tbat will he. absolutely unique.
The power, to be turned (nto electricity and thus distribute through
tbo great automobile factory covering many acres, wlll be produced by
four big 6,000 b.p. engines whlcb may
be best described as a hydrld ot gas
and stoani. Some engineers wben
they first heard of the plan called It
a "mechanical nightmare." Bach
engine will havo four cylinders ln
tandem nn each aide, ono pair of cy
lluders being operated by producer
gas and the other by steam. The
steam will be generated from water
heated in tho water Jnekot of the
gas engine, further heated by exhaust gases and by waste heat from
the producer gas plnnt. The water
or steam will be used as the feed
water fnr thc boiler  which supplies
the steam engine cylinders.
This description may sound a little
technical, but it will be exactly the
same in effect as if oae to_i hot
water from the radiator of a gasoline motor car, further heated it a-
round the; exhaust pipe and with this
water or steam operated a steam engine to help out the gas engine cylinders ln driving tbe automobile.
This process carried to the limit
would be practically a perpetual.mo
tion machine inasmuch as all energy
wasteh In heat and friction would be
utilized again and again. Any school
boy who has struggled with physics
will have aome vague memories of
the law ot conservation of energy.No
energy is ever really lost and Ford's
plan in this remarkable apparatus Is
to round up as much as poreible of
the energy wasted by the ordinary
engine in tbe form of heat. Tbe four
6000 h.p. Hamilton-Gray gas engines
of this novel design will drive the
same number of 370k.w., 250 volt, 80
revolution, direct current generators
having the largest capacities on record for machines of tbls type. An
idea of the enormous size of theae
generators may be gained from tbe
fact that it will be necessary to
build them In sections to permit tbe
clearance through tunnels and bridges
In shipment to Detroit. Tbe generators will then be finally assembled at
the Ford plant in Detroit.
This remarkable power plant, by
utilizing the energy usually lost in
wnstc heat Is expected to give the
Ford factory the cheapest power in
the world.
Pruning Schools at
Cranbrook
under the auspices of the Farmers'
Inrtitute
Tbe Secretary of the above Institute desires to obtain the names of
all those ln the Cranbrook-Fernle
District who are desirous of t_.ing
advantage of the offer of the Department of Agriculture as mentioned below.
If the minimum of eight names is
obtained tbe Directors will take the
necessary steps to fulfil the conditions as required by thc Department
with regard to room, orchard, etc.
Names to be in by Thursday, Fob.

Secretary Farmers' Institute, Cranbrook, B.C.
ANNOUNCEMENT OF PRUNING
SCHOOLS
The Department of Agriculture, in
accordance with its policy of past
years, of providing means whereby
the fruit growers may receive special
training in the more difficult branches of their work, has decided to hold
pruning schools at a number of the
points during the coming winter.
The pruning schools will be conducted along lines similar to the
paiking schools.
The department of Agriculture will
provide a competent Instructor, and
pay his expenses. The local administration of the pruning schools will
be placed in the hands ot a responsible local body, such as the Farmers
Institute, tbe Fruit Growers' Association, or the Board ot Trade, ml.
wlll be responsible for the guarantee
of a minimum of eight pupils, - but
not more than twelve, with proper
qualifications, at a fee of two dollars each, to take ten lessons of 3
hours a lesson, the school utendi.ig
over five days. Where the number
of pupils in a district justlflo., two
pruning achools may be arranged for
in which the minimum guarantee v i.i
be sixteen pupils and not over 24.
The local organization wlll also
provide an orchard or orchards.
where the Instructor may hold thc
pruning classes, and a hall or room
in which the lecture may be held.
Besides the actual practice In tbe
orchard, of which thc course will con
slst chiefly, where tbe pupils will
prune trees under the supervision of
the instructor, tbere will be several
lectures on the following subjects'—
1. The theory of pruning.
2. Formation of fruit buds.
3. Pruning   as   related   to   plant
growth.
4. Top-grafting undesirable varieties.
5. First aid to injured trees.
The pupils wlll provide their own
pruning tools. The necessary tools
lining, a pair of shears, a saw, and
a pocket whetstone. A pruning pole
and a light ladder may also be necessary for large trees.
The Department expects that the
instructor will be met on bin arrival
by some responsible person, who will
provide him with all the necessary
Information, so as to get thc school
under way without loss of time.

Britain's EnemiesCheer
at the news
The news that the Government
would probably not introduce tbe
Naval Bill thiri session was received
with shouts of triumph in the Laurier Precs.
Every enemy of Old Kngland will
re-echo that shout.
Let them cheer.
Traitors and waverers tried to
break the claims of Empire before.
They did not succeed in tbe palt;
they cannot and wiil not triumph at
it now.
But the sturdy descendentB of those
Ood fearing men who in dark and
troubled days gone by, sacrificed
their all that British liberty might
live on this continent of North A-
u..rica. will not soon forget that in
this, the hour of England's trial, era
ven falterers in the name of Liberalism, turned their backs upon the
Mother at whose breasts their ancestors were fed.
HOW rREVISNTKD
Every Briton who loves thc Union
Jack, and the principles of which 11
is the symbol; every Canadian worthy the name, must not be permitted
to forget that they are prevented
from giving tangible evidence of their
loyalty to Mother England by a dozen men who are the hirelings and
tools of that arch-enemy of the British Empire, Hir Wilfrid Laurier
Free Institutions are degraded, and
the voice of the ueople stifled by a
few men, who, if measured by the
standard of intellect, administrative
capacity or love of country, would
not be deemed worthy of public con
fidence; men who occupy their seats
in the Senate solely as a reward for
the money or the service which they
contributed to the Liberal party.
THE PAWNS IN THE GAME
But these tools of Sir Wilfrid Laur
ler, are, after nil, mere pawns ln
the game. Most of them have not
even tne slightest conception of the
world or international politics, and
nre unable to realize the possible con
sequences of their rash and unthinking act. The real responsibility lies
with those who are seeking to disrupt and dismember the Empire, under tbe guise and in the name of th
"Canadian Autonomy."
"Autonomy," "Independence," and
"Nationalism," have become common
places with the Liberal party. The
black Mag of the Separatism is already discernible on thc horlzen.
Political advonturerc have divorced
the Liberal party from every moral
nnd patriotic consideration.
The responsibility which theae men
are taking upon  themselves is terrl'
ble to contemplate.
Should Armageddon come, and England fail—which God forbid—the
real assassins will be those, who for
political gain, gambled with tbe destinies of an Empire.
Women's Institute
Presentation
Tbe Womens' Institute held a very
successful meeting on Tuesday afternoon ln the Maple Hall, when Mrs.

Whatever the result of the efforts
which are still being made to secure
adequate representation for the government of (ireat Britain, at tbe
Panama-Pacltlc Kiposltlon, to be
held in San Francisco in 1.15, it is
certain that the Dominion of Canada
will play a most creditable part In
the celebration.
The dual plans for the Canadian
pavilion, which Is to lie one of the
handsomest among the buildings representative of foreign nations and
states, were accepted on January
and the process of actual construction will hove begun before the publication ot thin article, under the supervision of Colonel William Hutchison of Ottawa, the Canadian Exhibition Commissioner.
Colonel Hutchison arrived in San
Francisco January Hth, to inaugurate the work upon the building, preparatory to the arrival of tne Canadian exhibit, which is now on the
way to Frisco. He was joined here
by George Freeman, the London architect, who is the designer of the
building, and his staff.
The pavilion, which will cost approximately 1380,000 will be the largest exposition building ever erected
by the Canadian Oonernment. It
will be 340 feet long, 240 feet wide
and SO feet higb. The whole annuel-
pended upon the building and its
contents will amount to ((00,000 or
more. , .
A portion of the products that wlll
form the display .ere shipped .several
weeks ago from Ohent, where they
were exhibited at the recent exposition in that city, a portion coming
by ship by way of Cape Horn, and
the remainder hy the Isthmus of
Pamaraa. Further axhlblts.however,
wlll be added of articles of products,
and animals, shipped to San Francisco direct from the Canadian Provinces.
The pavilion and these exhibits are
by the Dominion government and it
is probable that there will lie additional independent exhibit" arranged
by many if not all of the several provinces.
While tbe exhibit will cover all agricultural, manufacturing, and educational interests, great emphasis Is
being laid upon the importance of
tbe Canadian Live stock exhibit. Recently Cnarlea R. Mitchell, Minister
of Public Works of Alberta, Canada,
and Commissioner Lanagan of British Columbia were guests of the exposition officials and In Conference

of tho Live Stuck Department, tn reference to Canada's part in what is

not only to see live stock of different

certified by their record associations

That neither the people of California, the exposition otHciala nor those
l-nglishmen who are conversant with
the importance of the matter, have
abandoned hope of having a representative exhibits by the government
of Oreat Britain at tbe exposition,
was evidenced at a luncheon given
by the president and directors of the
exposition at the Palace Hotel, to
'Mr Robert Balfour, during bis recent
visit, in company with Lord Rich-
urd Farrar Herschel, Sir Robert had
been conducted over the exposition
grounds, shown tbe almost incredible progress of construction of exhibit palaces, the electrical models
showing the methoh of illumination
tbe sculpture studies and the mammoth activities of the horticultural
department in preparing trees, plants
and flowera which are to grace tbe
grounds, atid expressed himself as
having received new confirmation of
bis belief in the importance and inevitable success of the exposition.
"1 have not yet abandoned hope
tbat Great Britain will participate In
tbe exposition," said Hir Robert.
"1 can assure you tbat the declination of the British Oovernment haa
not been due to unfriendly feeling,
but wholly to a question whether
British manufacturers could be induced to send a truly representative
exhibit.
"I am not here to accuse or excuse
but to give actual facts of the situation.
"Karly last year tbe British Board
of Trade sent a reprerentative hue
to look over tbe situation. Ou Ins
return he reported favorable for a
successful exhibit on a large s.'.l.,
and that on that score no chaii-.is
wauld be taken in deciding to participate. The Board of Trade cun-
vaased to sec who would send e.hib-
Its. from the result, a fear arose
that Great Britain might not he rt
presented in a creditable manner unless the government came to aid
with a large contribution. Money
was scarce and taxes already blgb
and the government could not see it(
way clear to accept tbe invitation
to participate."
Hir Robert expressed himself as believing thnt, now the people and In
interests of Britain have l>een impressed with the commercial and social
significance of exhibit, a more favorable determination of the matter
may be reached.

the buying end and the selling

We use the two.

The physician.* ol the world have
met in conference in London, the
lawyers of America In Montreal, the
road builders in Detroit and commer
cial travellers in Baltimore. Danker*.
Insurance agents, publicity men, musicians, tailors, teachers, social service and prison reform leaders, and
men and women af practically levery
profecsion and calling meet annually
in convention to confer, advise, suggest and co-operate. They go hack
to tbeir work with new ideas and
new ambitions, and work and service-
move on to higher standards from
year to year.
Bhould members of the Christian
Church be one bit behind in asking
what otherc have learned to be practical, helpful, and of the greatest efficiency in the service of the Kingdom? Shall a year pass without
new goals Bet and new records established in the work of the churches
The 16 District. Conferences in British Columbia are planned to give
men Just the latest experience of oth
er men on what can be done to bring
a congregation to the highest standards on missionary lines-—your
Church will surely be represented by
Its representative men.
Mane the opening months of 1914
memorable in the history of your
Church with a splendid delegation gt
the Conference, and a canvass follow
ing that will bear fruit, for years.
One of such conferences will be
held In Cranhrook on February 27th,
and another in Fernie on March 1st.
The past six years hnve been mark
ed by a great awakening of laymen
in the larger centres of industrial
life to a fuller realisation of their essential place in the supreme work of
tbe Church, and it is now proposed
to extend this movement into tbe
.mailer thoroughfares of life, the supreme work heing, of course, the
making of Jesus Christ known, loved
and obeyed throughout the entire
world. Tbis awakening has shown
Itself in the Introduction of better
financial methods in the personal ef
forts of laymen by means of tbe Bv-
ery-Member Canvass to enlist every
member of the parish ns u syHtema
tic giver, both to current expenses
and to missions. This carefully organised canvass by laymen has done
more thim merely to increase money
gifts, It has brought blessings to the
men engaged in the work, it bas
spread much information where such
was most needed and has acted us
the mightiest spiritual stimulant
that many a parish hns received,
The above announcement speaks of
a series of district missionary conferences for men, to prepare for Just
this kind of work in Hritisb Columbia. Tbe experience of Ontario last
autumn, as well as In several wbole
communions in the United Htates
haa shown tbe immense value of such
simultaneous effort.
Would it. not be n splendid thing
If during Lent the laymen of your
Parish would give themselves to thla
highly productive work. What hotter use could be made nf that solemn season than by devoting our en
irgles to tbe work of making our re
Hpertive parishes larger factors In
Ihe Christianizing of our clvlll/n
tlon and In the evaneli'/atioli of the
world?
We would urge you personally to
deavor to attend the Conference and
to Induce ullur men to tin ho.

Two Alternatives as to
Royalties
Victoria, II. G„ Feb. Ti.-Members
nl the lumber Interests of the provlnre mot Hon. W. II. Rose today in
regard  to the ..uesllon ol royalties
snd ground rents. In the event of
an early settlement of the differences
of opinion that exist, legislation will
lie introduced on the question of royalties. There are two alternatives,
one advanced by the lumbermen of
the province and the other advanced
hy the ministers of the land. The
lumbermen are desirous of having a
Hied rate for a period of years, generally estimated at 21, while the
government favors a sliding scale of
rates.
One of tho lending arguments advanced by the lumbermen in favor of
the fixed rate ovor a long period ia
that) the bonding houses refuse to
deal with thom on account of the uncertain element ln the rate. Thoy
say lt interferes with their calculations In reckoning thc prospective
value of properties.
Among the lumbermen horo nre: A.
K. Frank, secretary of the Mountain
Lumber Manufacturers' association;
W. A. Atistit* nf Revelstoke, N. Murray of Kamloops and F. W. Adolph
nl Haynes Lako, all membera of the
Mountain Lumber Manufacturers' association.
The delegation wlll ho joined tomorrow hy roprcsontnolves of tho
Coast Lumbermen's association.
