effectively how it benefitted the!
farmers of this district. !

AT BRITANNIA
Britannia Beach. March 24.
On rudely constructed sieds. made
! from pieces of the wreckage, the
'dead bodies of the victims of the
avalanche, which early Monday
morning blotted out the lives of
■fifty-six men. women and children at Britannia Mines, were
yesterday lowered down the precipitous pathway of snow and ice
to the tunnel cam]) a mile below
the point where they were despatched by tramway and the
aerial haulage system to the
settlement at the beach three
miles distant. Seven of the bodies
were recovered by the searchers
among the ruins of the little mining camp yesterday, and these,
with the remains extracted from
the debris the day before, were
brought dowu the mountain side
to Britannia Beach.
The difficulties encountered in
removing the dead and injured
from the mine mouth, nearly
5000 feet above the sea level to
the beach were tremendous, and
the rescuers risked death scores
of times in effecting their noble
enterprise.

CHARACTERISTIC SPEECU
Hon. W. J. Bowser addressed
a large meeting on Tuesday at
North Vancouver, and dealt with
the new Agricultural Bill.   The
speaker said to enforce the provisions of the act now would be
like " putting a millstone around
the neck of the farmer" or "handing him a gold brick. "If the government   went  out  to   borrow
money today they would have to
pay 6or 7 per cent interest, which
with the 1 per cent or so margin
necessary for overhead expenses,
would   mean   that  the   farmer
would   have to stagger around
under a load of 8 per cent.    The
farmer could not stand  such  an
interest.
