Wycllffe won their fourth straight
league game of the seuson when they
handed Crnnbrooi-: a 1-1—4 drubbing
on the Cranbrook diamond Sunday.
From tlu1 first inning it was a walk
away for Wycliffe.
Lewis was on and with good fielding
behind him, especially by Morrison.
Cranbrook had a tough time to score
;it nil. Deprived of his spitter Green
did not pitch his usual brand of ball,
but the support he had was not of the
best. Even ArgUO, the dependable, fell
down and missed a fly. Wycllffe was
hitting hard all through the game
while Cranbrook's lilts were few and
between. Tills puts Wycliffe tie
with Kimberdey for second place in
the Baal Kootenay Baseball Leagee.

the most surprising and un looked

great deal, and it is apparent even at

ing country from an agricultural
standpoint hus just been recognized
by the establishment here of a selling
office of the B. A. Strout Farm Agency,
Inc.. and the appointment of F, G.
Hall a.s its local manager.
Tiie effect of  this step  will  be to
give Wiinier and East Kootenay country representation in the largest fnrm
eliing   organization   In   the   world,
aving more than 620 agents scatter-
d alt over the United States, in Canada and Great Britain and divisional
uflices in many of the large cities of

The move is an incident in a $1.000p-

of fnnninv  property here will be issued especially  for Mr.  Ball  by  the
.Strout Agency and distributed by him
housaiids   nf   farm   seeker-   and
lome seekers.   It wtH tell these pros-

have accomplished.
The Strout Agency ha- on Its lists
i- names ol many thousands of perns   who are  seeking farm   homes,
many of whom desire to locate in this
vicinity.    Tbe little booster for  Wilier  will  be placed before iln-m.    It
should   help   to   place   Wilmer   more
prominently on the worlds map.
What this means to a community
mny readily be imagined. In some

week to secure attention.
The success attained liy the
United Farmers of Manitoba, in
t[injunction ..villi the Progressives, in the Manitoba elections tliis week, indicates again
liie trend of things politically
in the prairie provinces. The
Liberals, formerly the party in
power, retain merely tt handful
of scats, and the Conservatives
fared no better. Tliere seems
to have como a spirit of awakening over the west, a realization of tlieir own power has
come over the farmers, and
they seem distrustful of Ihe older line parties. It seems that
neither one of thein has moved
fast, enough to gel abreast of
the Fanner sentiment abroad
in the land. Here again the
sharp eleaveage between country and ciiy becomes apparent.
Whither will it lead? Does it
bode well or ill for the country? Canada is dividing on
the wrong lines if this tendency develops, for on the top of
all the external problems, It
adds an internal one of the flrsl
determination which are among his outstanding character-
isties, gathered his Utile band
around hini and quickly succeeded in inspiring them with
of the Government, there was
much of his own spirit. During ihe session just dosed,
j while he was no lunger leader
! no one to challenge his leadership in the House. In ag-
I groBsIveness, watchfulness, Intellectual keenness, ami all tlie
qualities of leadership. .Mr.
! .Meighen has been supreme.
The Conservative members
from British Columbia have
taken an outstanding part in
the debates uf the session. It
would be difficult to iind seven
men in lhe House wlio are lhe
equal ol Mr. Stevens, Tolmie,
MacKelvie. McQuarrie, l.adiier,
Clark, ami Dickie, .Mr. Stevens
lias long had a prominent
place for himself as a debater
of the most ready type; well Informed, eloquent, and logical.
On all agricultural subjects
Dr. Tolmie has no peer, -Mr.
MacKelvie on the frail Industry
and Mr. McQuarrie on Hu* fisheries and General Clarke on
military mailers arc ali perfectly at. home; wliile Mr. l.adiier and Mr. Dickie have proved
themselves extremely useful on
many occasions. There is ao
other province that can compare witli British Columbia in
the general all round versatility of its representatives; and
they have proved a tower of
strength to Mr. Meighen in tlie
Every measure thai Hie Conservative members from British Columbia have advocated in
lhe House-and. indeed, in regard lo some ou which Literals
and Conservatives thoughl it-
like Mr, Moighen lias taken
an active part and an active interest in furthering. British
Columbia has no heller friend
and no more effective advocate
in all tlie House than the leader
of lhe Conservative parly, as he
has proved time and again this
session, as in Ihe past.

Whon election returns won;
all in last December it looked
for n time at though thc Conservative party in the I louse
would lie small and ineffective,
and tlie part It would be able to
play a minor one. Ua numbers
were heavily reduced, and a

Communications passing between
Premier Oliver and Senator Barnard,
ine of tin.1 ll. r. senators, Indicate thai
Premier Oliver is laying tn Senator
Barnard, along with Senator Green,
tho blame I'm- die failure of tlie pro-
Canada Temperance Act, whicli wluld
vlnce to obtain tlu- amendment to tlie
Canada Temperance Aet, which would
sole righl to Imparl liquor into the
province ror sale or export. This
is the oraendment which tlie Attorney-
Gflneral went east to father, but wliloi'
was disallowed by the senate and deleted from the amended bill when finally brought before the house of
"Had we been granted power," snld
Ihe Atlorney-Ueneiul, discussing It,
"to control importation of liquor, It
would have gtven us tho authority to
adequately administer our provincial
liquor legislation, eliminate iht- boot-
Iokkit who is enabled to operate
through his ability in import, and allow ns. in effect, to substantially reduce the price of government liquor
to tho people nf tbo province. Without tho power sought our aim to give
lho people of the province decent administration is most seriously handicapped. In Tact, without It. it Is Im-
pOBlble    to    properly  administer the
provincial act iu the best Interests of
thu people of the province."
When Senator Barnard and Si-nnt-
or Green refused to aid In the passing
oi lhe amendment desired through the
BOimte at lb'1 eleventh hour, Ihey
were churged by the Premier, in effect, with working against the besl
Interests of the province. Now Son-
ator M.i.'n- nl comes back with u ru-
ply Instating that the liquor prices
charged by tho provincial governmeni
are unreasonably high when compared with those prevailing in Ontario .mil Quebec, Senator Barnard
takes this stand in a letter he addresses io lhe press answering the statement of the Premier that he and Senator Oreen blocked the legislation
nsked for by tbis province to secure
a monopoly on importation.
Tho senator snye be resents this.
nud reiterates his first statement
tlmt in all fairness it wonld be impossible for tiie federal authorities to
grant tbis province Ibe exclusive
tight to Import, without the poople
voting on tho matter. He also quotes from an advertisement of the liquor commission in Quebec, showing
how thn prices compare for the same
liquors, in which there is a considerable disparity iu favor of lhe eastern consumer of government liquor.
Senator Barnard also refers to ihe
price list of Hie Ontario Government
dispensaries nf January lasl. going
into iln- matter in a very specific wny
showing that so far ns-prino is concerned, this p rovluce is much higher than Ontario.
To this the Premier replies that in
Ibis province liquor is looked upon
more as a luxury than in Ontario.
Tlie wholo episode, huwevcr, brings
out tho question as to why tbe gov-
ernmeut did not in the first plnco
' tako the plebiscite under the Seott
i Act. n:i the right to confine tiie im-

Tlie criminal aspect at immigration
was dealt with by Chief Belanger, of
Montreal.   Ho said iu part:
"While I am not opposed to a healthy Immigration, there bIiouUI be restrictions that will insure Canada from
being overrun by an undesirable class
whieh makes law enforcement all the
more difliculi iu times of [ilress or
crisis," he staled. "The genuine
tourist should tie encouraged iu every
way, and 1 wonld suggest that the
convent ion appoint a committee lo
draw np suggestions tor handling
this class of business so ihat it can
bo carried nn unhindered, yet with
proper machinery iu motion lo preclude undesirables crossing the border inlo Canada." Chief Belanger
said . "If a mun bus been here iu
Canada forty years, why should he
not be deported if lie c-oiUmtlB a
crime? if these people understand
that if tbey do nol obey onr laws they
can be sen! back lo their own country. It will result iu securing u better class of Immigrant," said Inspector McKinney, of Toronto, tn his address. Tbe attorney general of this
province. Hen. A. M. Manson, was also a speaker at the convention, and
naturally dealt wllh lhe liipior act
now In force here, aud the difficulties found In the way of Its enforcement. "1 find some of our most respectable citizens." tie said, "—with
a question mark, — patronizing tlie
bootleggers, and yet Ihey sit ill the
front pews of our churches."
Inspector McKinney of Toronto, declared severe measures were necessary tf the disorderly house evil was
to be abolished, and be believed penalties for adultery  would  materially
aid  in effecting a cure.
Desire for easy gain    had    caused
many good men to go wrong, as the
gambling mania led to theft.     With
tbe  exception  of  bookmaking  at  the
horseraces all classes of gambling iu
Canada could  very  easily  be  eliminated   by  a  very  simple  avemlnient

Kazubazua-Tlie Happy Hunting Ground."
' K«i*,i.suat What Is it? Where
tk it? Butte It exist outside the
copiiv papers! Thus the ignorant
end un travel led.
H'jw many Canadians know that
Kaiubbsua li situated in one of the
most beautiful sections of tbe Gati-
DMU district, that the word, far
from being one with humourous intent, is of Indian origin, meaning
"hidden river," which Is descriptively accurate of the Gatineau at thi*
jjoint? Very few, it is to be feared.
It takes the sportsman to prick
,up his ears at the mention of the
name. For he will probably know
that near Kaxiibazua lies one of thc
finest trout streams In tlie province,
and thst It forms the base of many
famous hunting expeditions.
Notable among those were thc
two trips which have given the Gatineau a staunch friend in Rex Beach,
wbo claims to have hunted over
thousands of miles of country without finding anything that could
touch the Kazubasua region.
To Coon Teepie, a resident of
Xazubuua and the most renowned
of Gatineau guides, a measure of
Mr. Beach's enjoyment and success
is certainly due,
Teeple, s spare, wiry man wha
does not look his age—whatever it
is!—haa "called" moose for many a
hunter, but save for bears, whose
skins sdorn hfs home, ho does not
care "fer killln'."
"He's an awful dear man," said a
neighbour of hia one day, and when
pressed to give a reason for Mr.
Teeple'a expressiveness, he explained: |
"He can spot a deer mile3 away.
Seems almost as if he could feel
'em in tbe air. Where nobody else
can bring in game, Conn Teeple can.
He knows by lookin' at a hill whether
there's deer on it. Yep, he's an
awful deer man. he M"
Mr. Taeple's tastes aro frankly
rural. He looks with keen disfavour
upon metropolitan inventions, especially the motor car. Walking to
him is the natural method of locomotion, though the advantages of a
"team" are at times apparent. He
walks 25 miles a day with true enjoyment, but ono ovenlng after
motoring sixteen miles, he returned
to his home exhausted. "Tuckered
right out," he complained. "It's a
crool strain on a fella', you know,
jus' settin'."
The station at Kazubazua holds itself haughtily aloof from the town.
Conveyances of every description
meet the trains and transport travellers over a sort of Bandy table-land,
firofusely covered with blueberries
n summer, to the cluster of cottages
that form the village. This blueberry
jatch is about 9 miles in area and
ts output would practically feed
Montreal. r
Kazubazua presents a very different appearance to Low for example. The hills seem farther away,
the country is wilder, in spite of a
relatively larger settlement. Deer
are seen close by, bears are not unknown, rnooae drink at the "crick
and yet telephone bells whirr in
Almost every nome and three hours

huve u large staff on the ground putting thing;. Into shape for the staging
of the picture.
The Company finds the location
there eminently suited for the staging of a tlrst class production, and the

scenic value of the place, asserting
that with such surroundings the picture cannot fail to iind a place iu Ihe

intervals twenty lighted cigarettes.
Nineteen   of  them   wete   found  to
have set small fires, all of which of

The Loop tunnel became blocked

was the Intention of the Company to
do away with this tunnel, which at
all seasons of the year Ihreutcns to
shift and blockade tho line, by removing the top covering and making ft
Into an open cut. The trouble yesterday may hasten this undertaking,
which undoubtedly will he far more

In 12 Montlis of 1921
Value of Economical Management at This  lime
id Shown in Big Railway s Increase In Net
Earnings in Face of Decrease in Gross.
THE report of the Canadian
Pacific Railway's operations
during the year 1921 will be
aii unusual!) Interesting document
tu all Canadians, The annual report
of thia Company Ls always uf Interest in flaw «f lhe fact that, more
truly and inure completely than any
other reporl Issued, it year by yenr
re fleets tin.' state of national trade
and industry. The C, P. R, touches
a: parts of Canada, its earnings
at unce reflect the prosperity ur depression that may exist in any pari
of the country, and lhe sum total of
the year's opera! lona as analyzed in
this report may confidently be lie-
eepted .... an unerring Indication of
how the country has prospered during tlie twelve months under review.
At this late date there is no news
in the statement Ihat 11)21 was uot
a year of uninterrupted progress,
hut it is interesting to review the
period, and in the lipht of some sueh
comprehensive report as that of the
C. P. R. to clearly see in what direction Canada's business affairs arc
moving. In this respect tbe C. P. R
leport for 1921 is Hn outstanding
example. In spite of a lare;e decrease in gross earnings, the company is able lo show an increase in
net as the result of rigid economy
throughout its working operations,
and in .mi doing it has pointed out to
all Canada the shortest road back In
normal trade activity.
During 1921 the company's gross
earnings were $l{lH,021,Sfi-l as
against $210,041,849 in 1920, a decrease uf $23,619,-194, or 10.20 per
cent. Tbis decline followed naturally upon the general business depression resulting in lessened passenger and freight traffic, decreases
in Goth passenger and freight rates,
and to a partial crop failure in some
parts uf Western Canada.
The Company's sales of agricultural land in the year were 163,804
acres for $2,N72,000* or an average
of $18.7-1 per acre. Included in this
area were d.OHfi acres of irrigated*
land which brought $.r)5.n an acre,
so that the average price paid for
the balance was $17.17. Land sales
reflected a large decrease in acreage, hut as is pointed out by Presided "F„ W. Beatty in his annual
report, the adoption of reasonable
immigration laws designed   to   en-
let lu
ad ian
courage lhe entry inlo Canada of
Immigrants of Ibe right type would
result in an improvement in this connect iun.
lu the face uf llu- decline in earnings ii was necessary tu make a
sharp reduction in operating expenses if the sour.d position uf the
company was to ie maintained. Kor
the year these expensi
to $158,820,114 as compared
$183,488,804 in 1920, thc resu
the decrease being ihat the ne!
ings fur the vear showed an Ine
of $1,048,698. totalling $34,20
is against $33,158,044 t'n the previ-
ous year. The year's operating expenses amounted lo 82.28 per cent,
of the -gross earnings and the
17.72 per cent, as compared
34.70 per cent, and 15.30 per
respectively in 1021.
How large a part tlu- Cm
Pacific plays in industrial life
lie gathered from the faet that more
than ball', ur r*.J.H-. per cent, uf thn
total $158,820,114 working expenses
for the year was paid uui in wages,
whi.p one quarter, or 25.92 per cent,
was used fur the purchase of supplies. The purchase of fuel and supplies fur locomotives toolt another
15.51 per cent, and governmeni taxes
consumed 8.40 per cent.
The contraction in the country's
general trade is perhaps more clearly
indicated in the following figures un
passenger and freight traffic. During the year 15,186-081 passengers
were carried bv tbe company, as
against 16,789,558 in 1920. The
average journey was Nil.07 miles and
average fare paid was $2.51.. In
1020 the average journey was 102,45
miles, and lhe average fare paid
was $2.89. Thus we see that not
only was the number uf passengers
smaller in 1921, bul each passenger,
on an average, made a shorter trip,
and paid less in fare.
The total tonnage of all classes of
freight, multiplied bv the number of
miles it travelled, was 12,124,075,570
tons, as against 15,687,014,701 in
1020, a decrease of 3,5G2,:!39,212
The company plans to spend $10,-
022,187 during the coming year on
replacement and extensions that will
improve the operating facilities of
the entire system and incidentally
help to revive industrial activity.
