tbe members of the Hoard are to be

Also, would il not be an excellent

The Herald would suggest among
these committees, one dealing with
mining, another with slock raising
and another in make special efforts
to secure data setting forth the .possibilities oi tbis district as a sheep
raising section.
These few uvjiilublc channels, were

Induce some of these tourists lo settle in this district. Not all of them
are on pleasure bent, and a little information regarding what we have to

It is a well-known fact that many
of tbe prairie residents nre casting
an eye farther west, not to say anything about the possibility of landing some from among those who may
come from tbe south of us.
The Board members should meet
with the fullest encouragement from
everyone—for the community will
benefit as a whole through their
efforts as outlined.

thut this penalty is an enormity and
altogether out of proportion to the
crime of being late in the payment of
taxes, which aro essentially exoblt-
ani. if the Legislaturer-jplloved that
Its mission was to make it as difficult
at. possible for municipalities to colled tlieir taxes il could not have gone
about it, in a better way. The threat
of a 15 .per cent penalty if (axes arc
not paid, in a vast number of cases,
has the effect of accentuating a feeling of hopelessness v.mong property
owners who are quite unable to pay
the ordinary taxes in these times. At
ihe last tr.x pale property representing nearly $1,000,000 In arrears of.
taxes had lo he taken over by the;
municipality because no .purchasers
could be found, At the next tax sale,'
whenever it is held, the result will
be even more disastrous, unless in
tho meantime, taxation Is so dis-
tri bitted as to bring nbout an imine-
dlate and striking relief to property
"Under the terms of the Relief Act,;
which provides for the payment In
ten Instalments of taxes in arrears, i
tlie interest charges go on year nfter
year. People have found out that
their second instalments represent;
larger sum I ban the first, because of
the accumulated interest. Thus there
is a uew element of hopelessness introduced into the situation for those
who are unfortunate enough to be
delinquent in their taxes. About the
past and what la owing to the city
wu admit ihore is not much can be
done, except to give reductions in tbe
interest charges, and this reform
should be Instituted. About the future
there Is u redistribution of taxation
which must be brought about If cities
arc not to become bankrupt. In addition, the penalty at present im-
posed on delinquent taxpayers should 1
be abolished. It would not be neces- j
sary at all at present, save that the I
authorities, both Provincial and Muni-
cijial are perfectly aware that taxes
aro being levied on [property tlou
cannot be collected. For this reason
they try to bludgeon the people Into
paying, by Imposing n penalty which]
the law of the land does not. permit
as a rate of Interest on money loaned.
It is time the property owners of
Victoria banded together to protect
their rights and to .protest against
the Imposition of such taxation, as a
very largo number of them are unable to pay."

V1CTOKIA, 11. C- No public Information will be given out rrom Uie office of thc provincial commissioner
showing tho volume of business being
done at the government liquor slcires
here and at Vancouver; Application
made to Colonel Sclntor, prohibition
commissioner, for tin- i^in was met
by his reply that Instructions have
been given liy tlie attorney-general,
under whose jurisdiction falls tlie
prohibition department, thai no information is to lie given. The details of Hie business done will doubtless be forthcoming lor the next session of the legislature. j
This closure upon tlie financial results of the department's work has
not alone been extended to the press.]
The prohibitionists recently desired i
to secure similar informal ion but:
failed to get it, It is stated.
But while nothing official is forthcoming, lt Is no secret that Ibe prohibition department has been doing
a land-of lice business iu tiie sale ol
liquor for medicinal purposes. At the
Victoria store there is daily a large
number of buyers applying lor liquor
on prescription, some of ihe buyers
being local hotel men who, apparently are in ill-health and re.iuire a,
stimulant. In Vancouver buyers form
themselves in queues when tbey apply at the governmeni store to gel
their prescriptions filled. Whatever
may be the hikings nl tlie stores. the1
total Is a record one.
Emphatic denial was vplced by Col.
Sclater thnt the Quality cf the rum
whicli lias been vended liy iho local

time since he took office, of inferior

ment, are of the very bast quality se-'

Kvery purchase is properly tested to

"Thc government stores sell only

it is Imperative thai only the ver)

(.'apt, William Thomas Turner,
commander of tlie Atlantic's most fa-
: mons liners, and muster on the Ulsl-
; tenia when she was torpedoed by tiie
Clermans, has retired.
In July, 191.1, (.apt. Turner was in

King and Queen and on thnt occasion

never been beaten.
When Hie Liisitaniii was torpedoed
in Ifllfi Captain Turner wns in the
water for over three hours before being rescued. Al that time ho was
temporarily taking tlie place of Captain Dow. On New Years Eve, 1017,
Captain Turner was in command of
the liner Ivernia when sho was sunk
in the Mediterranean. Tn 1D1S he received the decoration of the fourth
class nf the Order of (he British Empire.
Captain Turner was born at Liverpool in 1S56 and wont to sea on a
sailing ship White Star at tbe age of
13. He journeyed to practically every
nan of tho world until ho joined the
Ciinnrd company iu 187S, He became
a master in IPO;1,, his first command

tory teeners t-JIven Time to
,   Appeal lo  Audience
One of the best shows Auditorium
patrons have seen this season was
the "Mahe Yourself at Home" company, starring tlte weli-kuown comedian. Milton Schuster, who Is a comedian of tlie first class and who kept
the audience convulsed the entire evening witli his inimitable humor He
does not strain for effect but gete his
"business" over by sheer merit. He
Is the pivot upon which the rest of
Lhe company revolves, and the whole
play Is one long cyclone of song,
mirth and melody.
Topical song hits are Introduced
ami .sung by the various members of
tlie company, wiiose voices wet" in
excellent trim, and the chorus of 25
girls was much above the average and
showed tlieir training to advantage
particularly in their ensemble in the
ship scene which was one of the pret.
iiesl. scenes of the play.
Mickey Hanlon was an excellent
foil for tlie rest of the company, and
he made the hit of the evening with
his clever dancing which was eccentric ns well as graceful. AmoB Murray bus a fine voice and sang some
pleasing numbers and his impromptu
speech between tho-nets had the audience guessing ns to whether he was
serious or not. '
Grace Wnssou's novelty song was a
great success and pleased the audience mightily, except the poor embarrassed males she singled out for
her attentions. But it was all good
fun and went well.
Trixie Saul has an exceptionally
fine voice and was well received In
all her songs, and captivated her
audience partieularly witli her rendering of "Hear Old Pal o* Mine." Rob
Cameron sang aud acted well and left
nothing to be deslrcd. the treat
nothing to be desired in the treatment of his pnrt, and Henry Carr
was deservedly foiled—as all villains
are supposed to bo, but be atoned for
all when lie joined with Schustfll
and Cameron iii the comedy singlnc
trio. It would not have b.vn amiss
if the trio I,id sung one or (wo sensible j-ongs ,1-, ."r-ir lnrmoulsi.t^ ivns
very pleas!:.*. Beverley Strain hw :i
nice voice and sang some popular
songs, but her articulation leaves
iimrh to be desired.
There were no cuts in the show, as
Mr. Schuster beltevos In giving his
i.rrons it squaro dee' and he was
tremendously gratified at the appreciative spirit of tlie audience, and he
fays that he ivlll keen frsi.bro.-k
well to the fore in his next season'.-
bookings. His only complainf wit*
the shortage of hotel accommodation as all the hotels were full, which
goes to show that Cranbrook is sorely booming. But it ts hard on visitors Just Ihe same.
With specially composed numbers
a well-balanced cost, special scenic
effects nnd wonderful drosses of tlie
girls, all combined to make the show
a real success from every point of
view. The following night, Saturday,
the same company presented "My
Pretty Baby," a mu-Ucfll comedy :dm-
ilnr to "Make Yourself at Home," ox-
cepl that it was entirely different in
costuming, with new scenery and
plot, The dresses wore even *i?ttci

For a loag time many claimed that
irrigation waa unneceas&ry In Western Canada. Conditions of drought
Av not .'fgularly occur there, and
quite apart from the fact that the
Scientific principles of dry firming
luive now obtained a great follow-
in. , there was not, tbey insisted, the
■tame urgency for irrigation u in
oU.<.r less fortunate countries, where
ih rainfull is usually ho small as
to make agriculture impossible
without  li.
When one looks back over the hts-
toiy ot irrigation in the West and
remembers tbe strenuous opposition

pubUc generally, one is struck witb
thi radical rigbl-about-face In sentiment, for not only is it now admitted lo be advantageous, but farmers
throughout practically the whole of

of the p«Ht two years with i rainfall

IrrljAtlonlsUi is rptiponjiltilt for this
iinanimmi., change In opinion
The semi-arid portion of Alberta
occupies a belt approximately 1(0
mlle« in width north of the state of
Moutana, and eitends from the
mountains on tbe west acrotH tbe
entire southern base of the prortace,
merging Into the more humid climate
of Saskatchewan at Uie eastern

Samuel Fortier. consulting Irrigation engineer of thu United States
Department of Agriculture, who a
few years ago thoroughly Investigated Irrigation conditions In Alberts, gave It as bis opinion thst ,.i
portions of these provinces the natural rainfall Is insufficient for pro
flUhle r..iming. and that Ike main
Issue would be iot so ssueb whether
Irrigation is necessary or oot, but
rather, Just how long, preltable
frope eonld be grown w Ithout It.
And hie prediction has ptoved correct.
Many ..rg-m.eoi* cau be advanced
tn favot of irrigation b-stnn in all
ways Buperlor to dry famiing, Irrigation, when practically applied, Is
(he best kind of farming because lt
Is thc only system thst permits of
tbe most intelligent treatment of
every Individual crop to suit its requirement*. It eliminates tbe necessity of summer fallow and elaborate
treatment of the soil In order to conserve moisture. Tbe bus is uf ail true
agricultural prosperity is mixed
terming, and irrigation is especially
adapted to it. Hy it* means special
rodder cropa, such as alfalfa, clover,
vetch, etc., the success of which
without water, Ih problematical, ean
be raised. In every case where it
bas heen put to the test ln competition with ordinary farming
methods, It bas been proved to Increase production from 25 to 100 per
cent. Prom the point of view of tbe
cmmunlty which depends upon tbe
agricultural class for its own business, it has proved highly desirable,
because if means smaller farm units,
.•loser settlement, Intensive farming,
'ncressed trade, and s larger spend-
Inj, tspaciiy per henil nf the
tributary population i
Admitting  tha truth ot the fort-1
going, it Is clear ihat Un- primary
reaaon for irrigation is crop insurance.   "
Irrigation ,n Western Canada is
mosl largely practiced in Southern
Alberta. At Lethbrldge, the Dominion Oovernment main urn.*- an experimental farm, at which caretnI records are kept of yields obtained
from the operation of both irrigated
and uon-irr-gated areas, and while,
with u measure of truth, lt may be
claimed thai results on experimental
form* may be obtained that are not
within the reach of busy fanners,
the records are of deep Interest aad
afford certified data which cannot
be assailed. The Gorernment is
entirely neutral in these meshorts of
farming, and at no time has any
attempt been made to demonstrate
the aid vantages of irrigation over
dry land farming. One-half of tbe
farm lies 1 elow tbe ditch and is
irrigated; the other half in at-jve the
ditch, aad tbe latest methods of dry
farming have been practiced.
On the dry land farm, an attempt bas been made to solve the
problems that tbe dry-land farmer
is confronted with. Ibe best methods
of summer fallow, weed control,
-wll drifting, etc. and on tbe irrigated part, the nuesiion that the
irrigator is particularly interested
In. On both portions of tbe farm,
the same crops hsve been raised
For thc past eleven years, from 1908
to 1919. W. H Fairfield, the farm
superintendent (who prior to coos
Ing to Canada was engaged in
similar work In the United State**,
has kepi s careful record of all
crops grown on this farm, and tbe
result haa proved beyond the least
shadow of doubt tbe advantages of
Irrigation towards Increased production In that country. The increase tn bushels of whMt (Marquis) was 23, of oats (Banner) 38,
of barley (Chevalier) 36, of peas
(all varieties) H, potatoes (Irish
Cobbler) 250, (and other crops ln
like proportion). Only in one case
In the whole eleven-year period did
the Irrigated crop fall below the
dry land crop, that exception being
peas in 1916, and It Is only fair to
point out that on the dry land the
crops have been summer fallowed,
which means hut one crop every
other year, while on the irrigated
land, a crop of some kind has been
produced year in and year ont. The
annual precipitation (or the eleven
years is 16.K1, tht, highest being
2S.05,  the  lowest 7.63.
Similar results to these have been
experienced on the Canada Land A
Irrigation Companye farm near
Medicine Rat, and on Ihe C.P.R. experimental farms at Strathmore
and Brookn while many individual
cases ol results attained by farmers
throughout .he whole territory may
be cited. Alfalfa production ls becoming general on the irrigated
lands, and at prices running from
•?■'. upward-, Is alone a great HMtrct.
of in-om-. to th* producer.
A large amount of capital ha*
lieen rxpended by corporations in
tbe western provinces during the
past ten or fifteen years in providing
additional water supplies to supplement the scanty rainfall. Of these
eorporatlons the CP.H., with approximately fifteen million dollars, is
the heaviest investor, und though for
many years considerable criticism
has been levelled nt the company, [|
is now rieni thai the investment
purely ob a flnaneial Undertaking
and quiii- gparl from the benefits
being derived from the individual on
the land and Ihe country a.«. a whole
ll Justifying Itself,
The Canadian Pacific has developed in Southern Alberta the largest
Individual project nn the American
continent, with an area greater than
the total irrigated area m either
Colorado nr California. Us irritable area    exceeds   (00,090 scree,
while the total ieugUi of its canals
and ditches la greater tt»t,n Canada's
longest river, the Mackenzie, or tbe
tail distant-*- ft oni Vancouver to
Halifax. Surveys originally made
by the Dominion Government determined that for 160 mile* southeasterly from Calgary and approximately
-0 miles north and south of tbe
C.P.It. main line, was a district admirably suited to irrigation both ia
gentle slope of the laud and character of the soil. Tbe western section of this block ia now thickly
settled, with settlement on the east-
era block being taken up as foot
ss the land can be placed on the
market Spontaneous recognition
of the value of irrigation by thoee
who bar* it not and want it, is evident In the constant dally stream of
letters of application received by th*
company, and the interesting tact in
connection therewith is that many
of those who now demand it formerly turned it down when tbe/ might
have bad it, ,
A further area of 190,000 acres in
the Letbbridge district, originally
developed by Uie Alberta Railway -a
Irrigation Company, waa acquired by
the Canadian Pacific Railway, and
has now reached a remarkable stage
of development and prosperity.
The agitation of the farmers is for
further irrigation and Irrigation*
quickly. Tbe termers claim, with
justification, that it it, a lire and
death issue for them; if they are to
remain on the land tbey mnst hava
it; if they do not get It; the only
alternative is their exodus. Already
the Government )ms a lien on their
lands lor seed, food and other assistance, ano-anting to four million dollars, and from the paint of view of
the Government alone, it is a business proposition. As a result of the
recent meeting between Dominion
Government officials and the farm-
era, referred to above, the Government hare promised further immediate surveys of 500,000 acres, which,
added to the million and a half already known to be irrigable, will
give a total irrigable acreage of two
million. A recent statement attributed to the Dominion Superintendent of the Reclamation Service
places the land in Alberta and
Saskatchewan that requires irrigation at 54,000,000 acres, and that
i* not all, for a further great area
of 19 million acres, lying between
tbe North and South Saskatchewan
and tho Battle and Red Deer rivers,
Is declared by engineers to be irrigable, which, with plenty of water
available, will prove to be among
the best productive portions of the
Canadian West.   To irrigate the 500,-
000 acre* abo"e referred to will coat,
ft Ik estimated, 120,000,000.     i
That the vast sum of monov invested by the Canadian Pacific in
Us irrigation enterprises above out-*
lined is sound, is now beyond alii
question. With 600.W0 acres of
Irrigable land between the cities of
Calgary and Medicine Hat producing
bumper crops year In and year out
it Is not fllfflei It lo calculate the ef -
f«cl on the company's freight anil
passenger revenue, and on the prosperity of these citleft and the pro--
vince as a whole, for it is clear
that the greater crop production the
greater general prosperity. The
greatness as well as the happiness
01 any people depend*-, on the prosperity of Its rural population. Irri-
?ationista say that one way to become a better farmer |s to become
a better irrigator. Kir John Wtlcoi

victory, Canada fails to provide for her wounded heroes,
for the employment of her
citizens, and for the maintenance of her trade, Germany
will not have fought in vain.
The Victory Loan 1919 is to
