THE FARMER'S SONS
OPPORTUNITY
One rsdiori why m n^nv bnyg \eav_e
tin farm for the eity is beetine of the
failure of thu father to laltu the boy
intO bit  I'linliili'iirn  lin.I    I,ii  I'linii- to
bill! that |)o is not innruly n "liiiwnr
of wood snd carrier of water," but
that lm ii. in full partnership, with
hiiji and has a personal iptoroit In the
luccess of the work. Those of us who
were relied on the farm know of course
tbst it would bo pratiticajly impossible
for llm father to always demonstrate
tbii to bis son by a caih consideration) but if thu seeds of ilissntisfuctiuii
are not to bu planted, some greater cun
sideration 'for the son's lervices will
have to be made than that of merely
hoard ami clothing. If, sSy, the son
know that ho would receive even u
small share of the proceeds from the
sale of a pig, or a iamb ur a calf, uml
uri'iiMiiuullt of a 1'ow or a hi rso, lo
lo with a! ho nn;!Isi- like, Iii save nr
lo spend, we believe, speaking frnm
experience, Ibat thu urrangomont would
be nun im lis ;s.I in isi ageuus. The son
loos nut like tn feel iiiiilnr the uliliga-
imu nf gning tu hia I'm Iht evory limn
lie wants a few cents fur sniiic expenditure; ami, besides, hu should'ho in a
pnsitiun tu lay up sumething fnr t|te
"rainy day." Tho needs of n quartet
of a century ago do not accord with
the needs of the present >iey; nor did
the hoys of thai lime bsve Ibe same
facilities fnr investment as tho buys
now bave.   Today we have practically
at our dnor strung ti  ml Institution;
which accept small iimounls un deposit; and wn ulsu have llm ('unadiun
government's great annuities system,
in regard to which a word ol' expluiui
tion may nut bu uut uf plaeo, It wus
approved by members uf both hunscs
of parliament, has at the back uf il the
security nf Die whule nf tin.1 Dominion
of Canada, and Ihere could be nu licit sir
or safer plan pf investment, us it means
of making provisiuu fnr old age. The
pn im. ui,. may be spread uver as many
years ss may lie desired. The government aitcinls tu ull Die details free nf
charge. For example, u payment nf (l.'l
—lhe price of one ling—inuilc for a buy
uf HI fid continued until be is (lit,
will give him an annuity nf (315.211
for life. If the payments ure cuntiiiu
ed until 88, he will receive (886.73, ur
over (I2U a yeur more than he would
receive at lin. The sume annuity could
be purchased fur a buy nf au older age
St a little advance in the uosl. If,
therefore, a farmer's boy knew thul
ut llm lime when bo sliull lie nu lunger
able tu work be wouhl buve ample proviiion fur lliu remainder uf his dtys,
ami lliul if ho died before drawing
(be lira! paymenl uf annuity all thul
he had paid iu with II per cent, cum
puund inieresl would lie returned In his
heirs, what a difference this wuulil make
iu his uiillunk; huw much mure cun
i. ut,',I he would lie In remain un Hie
farm—fur there is nn occupation more
llillli,ml,Ir.    llll'l    llUW    lllll' Is    IlllirC    ill'lo
pendent he wuulil lie in his nld age.
This is worth the lerious consideration
uf overy fanner who bus buys, ami of
evory farmer's sun who is old enough
lo reason fur himself. The govern
inent'i system is, of coume, available
nut only lu farmers' suns uml daugh
lers, but lu the suns uml duuglilcrs uf
every uther man whu jnukes t'unu'lu liis

PROVINCIAL IiANDB POLICY
Tbo .Ins I'hii mu of tlte policy "bt tho
provincial government witb reference
to the public lands of the province,
which waa given in the house last week
by tbe Hon. W. It. ltuss, Minister uf
I.mel:., showed conclusively thai tbo
e.i'..■inin.-in    is   putting   forth  uvury
 i  to conserve the public  dotuuin
iu the manner best lilted lu promote
Ihu publio inis i, i upun ii permanent
basis.
The Minister uf Lands showed thai
the I'luluiiiiu I,i u it,mini, policy with
reference (o crown lands began upun
the part uf the government concurrent
Hy with the creation of a demand
fur those lands, couseijuent tiputi the
strong demund which had developed
fur the timber lands uf Ihe province.
As a first slop in the formation of a
laud policy the classification known
is third class land was dropped, thus
increasing tbe price of eruwn lunds
by about 200 per cent, and a few
, muiitbs Inter the remaining limber
lauds of lhe province were withdrawn
frum alienation.
As u furllier necessary feature, an
i'U,i,-is,' system of land surveys was
decided upuu and was started in lODS.
This wnrk has been carried uu wilhuul
cessutiiin until there aro at present
000,01111 acres uf agricultural laud sur
i eyed ur sullicienl to accommodate
6,000 familiua. It is the intention tu
I'uiitiuue these surveys uutil lhe wliule
province has been covered.
Tho undertaking uf Ihis system uf
surveys was followed by u lurther development whereby une third of all
surveyed lauds was reserved for the
pre-etnptor, une third fur university
endowment, and one third fur either
purchusu ur pre-emption.
In 1000 ami 1011) still further areas
were withdrawn frum sule ur lease,
md Hill saw a distinct advance in
lliis movement when vacant lamls in
Cariboo, Kuinluups, Lilluuet and Vale
diviiiuui aggregating about oue third
• nl' tbe area nf lhe entire province were
withdrawn from sale or lease. Coin-
client with this move tud as a still
further protection uf the public do
main, Ibe price of lands in the areas
•i.n remaining fur purchase was iu
created by one hundred pur cent. This
lino of action was later extonded lu
. i i I;, lu Pence River Lauds, the pri
being doubled and ecu ipia<lriiplcd in
tliis new district.
As  this  pruliten:   stnin's  st   i ■'■ '
11.- ili   l-wo-tbirds ot  the  entire
ana of lhe province is under reserve,
all lhe remaining timber lauds are under reaerve, while all lhe lamls which
ure open tu aiiciiatiun ilf' available
tu either lbc pre emptor ur lhe pur
rlisser, Ibe purchase price being advanced lu a ligure whn h uffurds just)
fimtiun fur Ihu capitalization of these
landi tnd Ibeir conversion into source!
of revenue Ibruugb taxation.
Closely n-su, mt. .1 with the lands policy of Ibe I',,-,, unu. nt are the cffurls
which ire being made lu. encuurage
actual settlement un the agricultural
lamia of Ibe province. For Ibii pur
posu the very oxtemive operation!
with respect to lurveyi tre being vig
uruutly prosecuted, while following tho
i ouipletion of the survey! mipi are
being promptly made of the landi and
Ibeu mapi ire being distributed by
Ibe tbuusiii'l to intending pre-empton.
Thl uperilinns being carried forward
liy the department of public works
ar* likewise detigntd to further tbe
policy of the government with refer-
tact to agricultural limit. Itailways
and roadi are being built iu all diree-
lioui throughout thi province in.order
tu render the land readily accessible
aad ia ordtr to provide tbu iwadod
trsniportalion facilitiet to tbe control
*f popultlion,      Thl   generous   polity
followed witb reftrento to tbt eitab
au important factor in tbe promotion
of actual settlement.
There are very encouraging evidences
that these effort! upon the part of tbe
government are meeting with gratifying auccess.   A  compariaon    of    the
amount uf farm produce gruwn within tho province for tbo year 1UII0 ami
the year 1010 reveala much lhat is encouraging in  tbis respect.   The tnlal
value of farm products for  1000 wus
$8,500,000, while for 1010 it wae ap
proximately  $14,500,000.      It   is   true
that   during   1010  farm  produce   was
imported to the amuiint of over $11,
000,000,   but  iu  this  connection,    the
great increase in population should be
borne in mind.   The influx of popula-
tion  during  1010 was  not  less  than
75,000 persons.    Tbe amount of farm
produce consumed increased from $20,-
000,000 in 1900 to $28,500,000 in 1010.
That is to say that iu 1000 the province
raised 42^4 per cent, of the farm pro
duce  utilized,  while in  1010.over 50
per cent, was raised locally, notwithstanding .the fact lhal the demand was
almost fifty per cent, in advance of the
previous     year.      Premier     Mcllride
pointed uut un the floor uf the house
last week that although the rapid In-
roaie n, populstiun which was being,
experienced made it improbable that lhe
farm products grown wltbln the province   would   incrcaee   wilh   uuftiuient
rapidity to overtake tbo demand, yet
il was very encouraging to know Ibat
Ibe progress was such lhat the situation
in this regard was becoming more-favorable from year lu year.
churches ete, bsve been established,
factories, printing housca and other
modern institutions bsve beep put is
operation. Whatever may havo been
the precipitating cauie, theae were
doubtless, the actuating forcea which
bave led up to tbe routing of tbii
great nation from the slumber of centuries witb tbo result tbst the organization of this new state, the creation
of tbis now political snd commercial
factur represent! a new world force
Which the mil hum muit take very seriously in tbeir future reckoning!.

Bo far, I had fell like one lliteqlqg

already barkened to wat but a preamble to the Ingedy which wss yet

responsibility for Pago't death lay between hlmtelf and Burko, It would appear tbat he waa adopting the only
meant ol gelling out of a bad bole.
Still I knew In my heart tbat tbt
denouement of bit -recital had at best
been only hinted at. Had he been
under arrest, It would bave bees my
duty to warn him that whatever he
might lay could be used against bim

"Don't you know, Swift," Maillot resumed, after a meditative pause, "tbst
It'i a mighly euy matter to mlijudge

ttve You Figured the Lots
From "Busy" Signal*?
Suppose a customer ii about to order something or
other over your telephone, The operator finds your
line oi lines engaged. The customer must wait—or
order somewhere else, Maybe he chooses to wait-
calls again—again finds your line or lines busy.
That means a possible loss of a customer,
The business man needs adequate telephone service for lliv accommodation of his
business and his customers. When you lose
customers through "busy" signals, it has
been proved that your telephone facilities
are inadequate.
People who get business make it easy for their customers to get ihem and have the number of telephone
lines their business requires. The number should be
determined by tlie amount of use at the BUSIEST
time of the day.

Provincial Legislature
9mm Ot Potnga of Me Week by our
Own Vim OjAltty dnwiapoiidwt,
The first week's sitting of the present legislature baa beau one ot ape-ash
rather than aetion, nearly the whole ot
tbe time having been occupied by tha
o^b»l*..i)B.t]loMl&ai'!_.>*!8lZj».li^
speech from tb? throne, Jbp debate
sailed forth one or two notable speeches. That of tbe Premier on Monday
last was the longest and most comprehensive, niiu'ii it dealt With nearly all
matters of publio interest in Hie province at thla time, purlug the hour
and forty minutes tbat he was speak'
ing tbe Premier held the attention of
the bouse, any dlffuseness being atoned fer by his bracefu) delivery ami
well rounded periods. Mr, Brewster,
who pieced tho Premier, while rather
pun.h inns III s'l'.le ,iiiluiiiie.il'. inadii
the best et his ease, and his criticism
was couched in fair and gonlletnanly
language,
Mr, Parker Williams, the sole uipon-
est of Socialism in Ihe house at Ihis
time, let off somo verbal Ore rockets
mingled with some whining Utile i'ulln ine   wheels of witticism,   His ra
ther personal references lo the Premier
wero not talieu very seriously and be
wss forgiven for the amuseinont   be
caused.   Mr. Tisdall's was the address
ef a busim's man, eminently praeti
cal and concise,   lie wasted no words
on frills, but said plainly what he wished fur his owu diatrict.   Among his
hopes were that tho government in its
proposed railway policy, would assist
the project for a railway from North
Vancouver by lluwo Hound and i'eui
iMrton Meadows, and I honee along the
Frascr to Port Qeorge and oat to the
Peace River country.   Mr. Watson in
in'ming   lhe   addresa,   i|uile   lilliiigly
dealt with Ilu- effee!  of the govern-
ment '■- policy in ils broader aspects,
although hu did mil neglect to call at
i,mil,,i also lo the development of the
Viucouver districl and ils needs. Mr.
■lai'iii.'    speech on tlie address was uo
table fur his declaration of "adherence
to lhe i "is" i sni ive party, aud hia sym
palliy fnr Hie lonely position of his
former colleague, Mr. Hrewster. Other
speakers on lhe address dealt principal
ly wilh the needs of their own parlicu
lar districts. *
The  debate closed  wilh  s  stirring
speech by the Hon. Mr. Iloss, Minister
of Lands, in defence of the policy of
his ilepariineiil  ,which hud been vigor
inisly attacked by  Mr. Ilrewsler snd
Mr.   Williams,  who staled  practically
Hist uo land  wltbln   reach of trans
porlation  was available for the pre
emptor and thai all the best land iu
Iho province had been parted wilh to
"I' • uiul,'i ■      Mr.    Id.-...   replied   with
eipiiil vigor, allowing that at the pres
cnl lime two-thirds of the total urea
of the province was reserved for pre
emptors, and lhal in the past the only
land near enough lo a railway for set
lleinsiit   was   iu  Ihe Canadian Pacilic
belt,  wile li   uuder   lhe  Biliiiinistraliun
uf Mr. Hrewster's friends was the must
stagnant part of the province.
Ho fir only three bills have been laid
before  the  House,  and  onu  of these
created a record by being passed and
receiving Iho Lieutenant (lovcrnor's as
sent within  live days of lhe iipeiilng
nf Hie  House.   This  was the bill  lo
.iiiniaie lhe elections in wards 7 and
x nl lhe city of  Vancouver   11  was
necessary  lo  havo  this  passed  as  it
effected nol only Iho voles for aldermen
in those wards, bul also lhe ulher can
delates elected  by  general  vole, and
tin bylaws.   1'ntil il wss pus.-cl civic
business iu Vancouver could not pro
md.   A second bill was lhal lo vali
dale lhe revision uf provincial statutes
whnh pavsed second reeding un Friday
afternoon.   It came In for some crili
riant from Messrs   Ilrewsler sud Wil
lisini on Hie ground thai they were be
lug asked to lake loo much on faith
and lhal lhe members idioubl be given
an uppvrlumly to look through Ihem
before pasting them.   Hon. Mr. Iluwser,
raid  Ihs  revising   .'oinniisiionsts   had
Iiiiii given full power to do sll they
hsd dens and though Ihey had gouc
lay uud ll in altering words la some un
important Instances, il hid always been
dons   by   his   coiiMinL   He  eiplslned
Ihil the work was divided into three
volumes of which 3/WH copies each had
heeu printed making U,000 iu all.  A
fourth volume would be issued during
!«'cm.   This   would   contain   ivuglish
laws brought Iuto force by the proclamation of Sir James Douglas In IMS,
L I.    ■■'. B
and also an indjw to, private bills, The
bill passed second reading without division, The only otbjir bill »t present
on the order psjier l» an Unimportant,
technical amendment to the Hospitals
for the linen* Act.
A bill of greater Importance than
any of .thein, but which has not yet got
oii tba order paper, was that'embodying tbe amendments to tha l*nd Act
with refereno to timber, which was
introduced by Son. Mr. Ross at me
close ef the week's sitting, Tho bill
provides for the creation of a provincial forestry board with a chief forester and other olMal" who will have almost unlimited jurisdiction over Umber matters, It further enacts that
licences for any timber limits that may
be opened in the future must be applied
fer by tender, and tbe tenderer offering
the largest bonus per thousand feet on
limber eut will obtain the license, or
the Minister of Lamia may at his discretion decide that a lump sum shall
he tendered for, tba wbolelimit, This
Is in addition to tbs usual royalty. The
bill also provides tbat band-loggers licences may be issued in future only at
the discretion of the Miuister in districts where they are likely to do no
Injury to anyone else. After the passing of the act tbere will be a material
Increase In royalties which will bo
paid according to the grades of lumber
eut from the timber, these beiug di
vlded intu three elassiAcatiuns. The act
contains rigid restrictions fur the pre
ventlou ot forest fires, and severe pen
allies are provided for any infringe
ment.       '
During the week Mr. darter-Cotton
introduced the petition from J. Y. Mc
Naught ami others to create a uew mu
nieipallty known as West Vancouver,
which will really lie tu tbe west of
North Vuncouver. Tbis and the peti
Imu fur the amendments to the North
Vancouver incorporation Act will be
considered by tbe private bills commit
tee ou Tuesday for the purpose of as
curtaining whatever it haa complied
with standing orders. If it has, it will
be reported to the house i nthe form
of a bill and passeif through lhe regu
lar stages.
A graceful actiou of tho house during the past week was the passing uf
a resolution of congratulation  tu Ih
