Approximately fifty-five per cent, of

of a considerable portion of the taxes
remaining unpaid is anticipated.
The total taxes for the current

the suggestion recently put forth by
Lord Haldane that judicial committee should be a perambulating court.
He says that the proposal is Impracticable, because the proposed
sectional courts would be subjected
to damaging local clal ms from
which an Imperial tribunal sitting at
Westminster would be exempt, and
also because there would be the
danger that the influence and prestige of the whole court would be
injured by the Dominions having
the feeling that the sections of the
Judicial committee would be weaker
than the tribunal at Westminster.
tea or more who wish to spend the
evening in Vancouver can by arrangement secure a service from Woodward's Landing at midnight. An
auto stage meets the ferry at Woodward's, conveying passengers to the
tram line at Fraser avenue. The
accommodation is fifteen people and
the charge Is thirty-five cents each
way.   The ferry is free.

deal of diffieu-lty in making the landing Thursday on account of a high

This Is   Indicated  by  Figures   Pnb-j

A striking example of the necessity of improvements in the methods
of cleaning Timothy seed can be
seen in the following figures which
are published by the Dominion Seed
Laboratory, Calgary, where a number of samples were tested for farmers and merchants.
The samples in almost every case,
were  of   exceptionally  fine   quality,
and had they been properly cleaned I

The suitability of many parts of'
Alberta and British Columbia for
growing Timothy for seed is unquestionable, and it is the 'intention of
the Government, through the Seed
Branch, to assist farmers in their
methods of handling and marketing
their seed.
Last year the Dominion Seed Laboratory at Calgary examined 317
samples of Timothy, of which 155
were received from farmers, 135 of
these came from Alberta, 11 from
British Columbia, 8 from Manitoba,
and 1 from the United States.
Of 317 samples received 278 were
examined for weed seeds and graded

This Is Sun. Public Works Department Has Expended This
VICTORIA, Nov. 20.���In road improvements in the districts largely
comprising the Lower Mainland, the
Provincial Department of Works
during the past season has expended
in the neighborhood of $400,00u, according to figures obtained from the
department here. This twtail comprises the expenditure in the Chilliwack, Delta and Richmond road districts, which include the Lower Mainland and a portion of the Fraser Valley. Account is not taken of the |
special sums voted for the construction of Kingsway between Vancouver and New Westminster, which
were put through on a special vote.
The $400,000 total comes from the
departmental estimates.
In order to provide 'or Aimer
maintenance, incidentally giving
work to' many laborers during the
slack season, ten per cent, of the
appropriations for these districts will
be kept back by the department and
will remain unspent for the present.

Richmond Council Empowers Him to
Cancel Licenses Without Option of Appeal.
STEVESTON, Nov. 17.���Whether
the chief of police should have full
power to cancel pool-room licenses,
with no appeal to the police board
allowed, was a point threshed out
at the council meeting yesterday afternoon, tha power finally being
delegated to the chief.
The pool-room by-law, in a draft
form submitted by Cowan, Ritchie &
Grant, municipal solicitors, waB un -
der consideration. Councillor Henry
Fentiman thought if the police chiei
had arbitrary power to cancel a
pool-room keeper's license, the operation of the by-law might In future
years become unsatisfactory. The
idea of Reeve Bridge was that, in
any event, the proprietor could take
the matter up with the council, and
If he possessed further tho right of
appeal to the police commissioners,
the latter would be continually bothered with complaints. When the motion endorsing tho clause was put
Councillor Fentiman was the only
one to vote against.
"If this clause proves unsatisfactory," saide Reeve Bridge, "we will
amend the by-law."
The by-law submitted denied
minors, under thirteen years, the liberty of poolrooms. The opinion
was that this age was much too
young, and by a unanimous vote the
limit was made eighteen years. The
by-law waa given three readings.
There was little other business to
come before the council yesterday.

After referring to the various
step? thnt hnve been taken to safeguard defective children at the public expense, he said that all of them
were definite interferences with the

was  justified   because  it  raised  the
J public efficiency, and    therefore became a public concern.    Where   the
line was to be drawn in this regard
it was not for him to say, and he
! dc ubted if two people at the present
. time held the same view on the mat-
- tor.     He   was   convinced,   however,

Club. This was the first public appearance Of Dr. Wesbrook in that
city, and the occasion to meet him
wns taken advantage of by about
250 people. The subject of the doctor's address was "Modern Methods
of   Disease  Control."
In  the    course    or    the  address,

certain discuses, but also of their
relation to public health. He emphasized the necessity of special
training in health matters, and expressed the opinion that tbe day
tyas dawning when scientific methods scientifically applied would hold
sway. Repudiating the idea that the
health oT the individual wns an individual affair, he pointed to the steps
simple, their solution was not hopeless.
They were in great need at the
present time of properly trained
public health officials. They had
been slow to recognize the need for
special training. "We are proud to
show visitors that our most imposing and best buildings are for the
training of our children, yet we en-

abdication of the 'throne in favor of

Austrian statesmen are doing their
utmost to discourage his proposed
surrender of the throne, because they
consider the young crown prince is
likely to be influenced by the element
friendly to Russia.
King Ferdinand at the same time is
receiving little encouragement in
Germany. Emperor William and the

themselves openly as friendly to

the faddist, he said that it was im-

there wns no royal road to the prevention of disease. He enthused
over the announcement of some
hitherto unknown cause of disease,
or of some new theory. Tlie eagerness on the part of the public to be
deceived in this regard, he said, was
evidenced by their support of mag-
ezines and neswpapers which furnished impossible and misleading
news items concerning health and
its  preservation.

Last Respects Paid Respected Resident of Langfej-���Rev.    Dr.
Dunn's  Appreciation.
(From The British Columbian. I
The funeral of Mrs. Martha Harris was held on Saturday afternoon
from the family residence to the
Fort Langley cemetery, and although the weather was tempestuous there was a large attendance, not a few having come from
New Westminster and Vancouver.
At the Sperling Methodist church
services were conducted there by
Rev. Robert Wilson, of the Milner
Methodist church, and Rev. Alexander  Dunn,  D.D.
On the request of Tlie British Columbian, Rev. Dr. Dunn, who hae on
several occasions infornfed this
newspaper of his willingness to furnish to our readers any particulars;
calculated to throw light upon the
life in the back woods during the
_arly days, has supplied us with the
following substance of his remarks
at the service:
it is 30 years since the deceased
Mrs. Harris, widow of the late Henry
Frederick Harris, came from Nova
Scotia to Fort Langley. Her husband and eldest son had come the
previous year, and had built their
log house. At that time there was
no road from Fort Langley to this
part of the municipality (near
Sperling) just the old telegraph
trail, and a rough enough one it
was. Today, at least during the
rainy season, it would probably be
condemned as dangerous, if not impassable. To Mrs. Harris, who had
come from a thickfy settled neighborhood, where there were good
houses and good roads, on her way
to her new home, the prospect was
not bright or attractive. And when
she reached her destination the outlook did not improve. In those days
it was the female portion of the
population that suffered most inconvenience and from the lack of
decent roads. Men furnished with
long gum boots could wade through
mud and water, but for females the
task was well nigh beyond their
power?. Indeed, they seldom attempted it unless absolute necessity
compelled them. Still country life,
during the rainy or winter season,
in homes where '.here were young
people, and where these homes were
conducted after the manner suggested aud enjoined in scripture,
where children obeyed their parents
and where parents provoked not
their children, where both parents
and children tried to contribute to
each other's happiness in al; legitimate ways, were not gloomy or repulsive. Long winter evenings,
after all necessary duties were done,
were actually enjoyed and looked
forward to. The home of the Harris family was a happy one. When
young people are led to take pleasure in home recreations they so;dom
seek questionable recreation abroad.
But when parens compel their young
people to remain at home and then
enforce- a rigorous course of dis-
cipline, debarring the mirth and
amusement which the young heart
craves, the result is almost inevitably ruinous. To many, in these
days of tram travelling and motoring, Lhe quiet unexciting lite led ty
the late Mrs. Harris would be unbearable. To her it gave no ground
cf complaint. She had learned to
Le content. She was happy in her
home and with her family, and in
the enjoyment of God's mercies,
temporal and spiritual. Many think
that If they were in some other
place than the one they are now In
they would be quite contented and
peaceful; Others think that if they
possessed something (riches) which
they do not now possess, they would
be at perfect peacp. And still others
imagine that in the future, when
they have a certain work done, or
a certain business transacted, they
would enjoy perfect rest and satisfaction, it i3 all a mistake. In
every place, whether we have much
or little, In every period of our life,
there ls always something to cause
trouble and anxiety. The peace of
God, which passeth a',1 understanding, is the nearest approach to perfect peace and perfect joy on earth.

OTTAWA, Nov. 18.���An urgent
invitation to the manufacturers and
business men of Canada to make use
of the British consular offices
throughout the world in the securing of trade information was delivered by Mr. J. Joyce-Broderick, former British consul at New York in
an address to the Ottawa Canadian
Club on Saturday. Mr. Broderick
has been promoted to the position of
consul at Amsterdam, Holland, but
before taking up his new duties, is
making a tour of Canada in the interests of the service.
He commented on the fact that
during the years he occupied the
New York post, enquiries had been
exceedingly rare. The idea had then
occurred to him, in view of the arrangements made by Hon. George
E. Foster with the British government, that it would be a good thing
to personally deliver the invitation
to Canadians to make use of the
British service. The British government consented to his doing so.
Mr. Broderick predicted that Canada would shortly become a manufacturing country in the main and
pointed out the great assistance
which he said could be rendered by
consular agents in bringing manufacturers and business men into
touch with the great foreign markets.

Blockade at    Hell's    Gate    Canyon
Wns  Removed   in  Time to
Save Situation.
That the alarming blockade of the
Fraser river canyon at Hell's Gate,
which was reported to be preventing
the salmon from reaching the spawning grounds, was removed in time
to assure a plentiful supply of fry
for the 1917 run, the next "big
year," is the unbiassed opinion of
Inspector Henry Baldrige, who is in
charge of the White River Eyeing
hatchery for the government of the
State ot Washington. Mr. Bald-
ridge reached the city this morning
after spending two weeks, under the
instructions of the Washington government, investigating the situation
in the canyon, on the spawning
grounds and ac tbe hatcheries.
Mr. Baldridge was seen at the
Dominion fisheries offices here where
he had called to interview Mr. F. H.
Cunningham, chief inspector for the
province. While Mr. Baldridge
showed the usual official reticence,
his report to his government not yet
ready for publication, he was willing
to state that while the serious nature of the blockade had not been
exaggerated, it had been removed
by the local authorities with sufficient promptitude to insure plenty
of spawn for the 1917 run. He
said that the blockade had been productive of no injury while it lasted.
There was plenty of spawn where it
was wanted.
The visitor also inspected the salmon hatcheries at Pemberton, Seaton
lake, Granite creek and Harrison and
spoke in high terms of praise of
the manner in which they were beln-; conducted. He found that 24,-
000,000 sockeye salmon eggs had already been secured at the Pemberton
Hatchery and a million more than
thr t at Seaton. Both these hatcheries were taking between 300,000
the time of his visit. This report
by an investigator independent of
all local affiliations will go far to
allay the fears of the canners regarding the possible injury to the
1917   run  of sockeyes.

the government    to    visit    Tacoma,
ing of the Richmond Dairying Association bold last Friday evening,
which was well attended. The tuberculosis test is a matter of much importance to all of the members, and
several have been heavy losers recently by reason of its opi ration.
Two Re:i Island dairymen, who have 11
had a total of over forty head condemned, placed their case bi fore the
meeting, and as the destruction or
these cows, many of whom were apparently healthy, would mean n
-...- financial loss, it was decided
to make an effort to have Hon. Trice

nnd they wore slaughtered. If Hon.
Price Ellison is able to attend the

Buckingham will meet him on his arrival in Vancouver and take him out
to Sea Island.
The opinion was expressed that the
government veterinarians should be
asked to vindicate their test before a

shingles will be manufactured hy the
mills of Whatcom County in the future, in order to get out a product
���that will compete with the British
Columbia mills, now that the tariff
has been removed on this class of
building material. The thinner
shingles will mean that more
shingles will be cut from a log and
the bundles will be lighter and the
freight will therefore be less.    It is
