Ottawa, Feb. 16—Mr. R. F. Green,
member 'for Kootenay, is this morning receiving the congratulations of
his friends for having induced the
minister . of finance to increase the
duty on jvi-ples; from forty to ninety
cents per barrel. It was largely duo
to the representations of the member
for Kootenay that this was one of
the two tariff changes announced by
Sir Thomas White. The view is gen
erally expressed that the increased
duty is necessary to protect the apple glowers of British Columbia from
keen competition. Incidentally, it
will be of great benefit to the apple
producers of Ontario, Quebec and the
Maritime provinces.
"The hest piece of news for a long
time. It means the saving of the apple growing industrj ol British Columbia." This was thc comment of
Mr. Vi. I'M Scott, deputy minister of
agriculture, upon the news in press
dispatches trom Ottawa that Sir
Thomas White, in his budget speech,
had announced that the duty payable
on apples entering Canada would be
ralsi 'Me, '...i cents per barrel.
Thc government in taking this action was induced to do so by the consistent efforts on the part of R. F.
Green, M.I1., the B. C. Fruit Growers
Association and the Department of
Agriculture, who have urged for the
past few years that the tariff should
bi raised so as to protect the apple
industry of British Columbia which
was in danger of being destroyed by

The B.  C.  Fruit Growers'  Asst elation     passed a string resolution

The association, having prepared its

sent two delegates, Messrs. W. C. Rl-

Mr. Winslow, secretary. They put up
their case before the commission antl
also had a number of interviews with

The delegates have just returned

At the fifth annual meeting of the
Commission of Conservation, Mr. H.
R. MacMillan, Chief Forester, Uritish
Columbia Forest Service, emphasized
the need for thorough supervision to
make a fire-ranging system really eflective. He stated that, because of
lack of field supervision, more money
is being' wasted in fire protection,
ihan is used economically. While this
is a broad statement, it iB believed
that the facts fully justify it.
Taking both Ontario and Quebec as
examples, there is good reason to believe that the amount of co-ordination between the head office and thc
tield is too limited to exercise really
adequate supervision over the fire-
ranging staffs. The one great secret
of the success achieved hy the St.
Maurice and Lower Ottawa Forest
Protective Associations has been organisation. The principal feature Of
these organizations has been the
thorough suiiervision exercised over
the men by the relatively great number of inspectors, all of whom are, in
turn, closely supervised from the bead
otliee. It i« believed tbat the several
provincial governments could mater
ially increase the efficiency of their
fire protection work by taking ad
vantage, in this respect, of the experience of the British Columbia Forest Service and of the Rt. Maurice
r,nd Lower Ottawa Forest Protective
Associations.

Greater success and better satisfaction to all seems to be the motto of
the Girls Hospital Auxiliary when
they set about to plan for their annual dance on St. Valentine's eve.
Splendid results have crowned their
efforts on all previous occasions but
this yenr saw the best yet. Mrs.
Howson, the Guild's efficient president, with her staff of willing _.-.r-rs
left nothing undone for the success al
the event and the pleasure of every
guest.
The Masouic hall never presented a
prettier or more brilliant spectacle
than it did ou Monday evening. With
its decorations of red and white and
enlivened from the start with the
bright faces and flitting forms of the
members in their girlish gowns of
white, each one wearing a red heart
on their arm. The lights were (haded
in red nnd festoons of red hearts were
hung gracefully overhead.
The floor was in perfect condition,
thc program of dances carefully and
generously arranged and excellent music was provided by a 'ive piece orchestra under the direction of MlSS
Frances Lnwson. The guests, young
and old, were able to dance to their
"heart's content" nnd tine fairly
took to itself wings and all too noon

dance continuously.
At midnight delicious refreshments
were  served   nnd   thoroughly  enjoyed.
The proceeds amounted to something over one hundred and twenty-
five dollars.

Mrs
Ottawa, Feb. V'.—Mr. R. F. Green,
member (for Kootenay, is this morning receiving the congratulations of
his friends for having Induced the
minister . of finance to increase the
duty on apiiles from forty to ninety
cents per barrel. It was largely duo
to the representations of the member
for Kootenay that this was one of
the two tarifl changes announced by
Sir Thomas White. Thu view is generally expressed that the increased
duty is necessary to protect the apple growers of British Columbia from
keen competition. Incidentally, it
will be ot great benefit to the apple
producers of Ontario, Quebec and the
Maritime provinces.
"The beet piece oi news for a lung
time. It means the saving of the ap-
plo El-owing industry of British Columbia." This was the comment of
Mr. W. I-M Scott, deputy minister of
agriculture, upon the news in press
lispatches from Ottawa that Sir
Thomas White, in his budget speech,
had announced that the duty payable
on apples entering Canada would he
raised to '.'l! cenits per barrel.
The government In taking this action was Induced to d i so by the con-
slsteni eflorts on the part of R. F.
Green, M.P., the B. C. Fruit Growers
Association and the Department of
Agriculture, who have urged for the
past few years tbat the tariff should
in raised '■ii as to jirotect the apple
industry ol Britiph Columbia which
was in liti'ii of being destroyed by
the ' .' 'tiition ol Vmerlcan appl it
The three states, Oregon, Washington
and     id iho, have overplanted eleven
tin.es what they can successfully mar
ket.
These     states have been  marketing
apples in their own country and western Canada below the cost of production,  which Prof, Lewis puts at $1.06
' per     box.     A     resolution ' was put
through the provincial house last sos
sion,    asking the Federal government
to   give     adequate protection to the
j fruit industry; thc Royal Commission
on Agriculture also recommended   the
same.   The B.  (J. Fruit Growers'  As-
si elation     passed a strong resolution
a. on  at  its  last  convention,  calling
tor adequate jirotectiou.
The association, having prepared its
case for the economic commission,
sent two delegates, Messrs. W. C. Ri-
cardo and R. M. Palmer, as will as
Mr. Winslow, secretary. They put up
tbeir case before the commission ana
also hud a number of interviews with
tie   • e;,..isters.
The delegates have just returned
i ittawa, after appearing   bi I ire
thi economic commission, the cust-
oi is Me.aid and the responsible ministers. They were greatly aided by
thi Hon. Martin Burrell, minister of
agriculture, wno has been lndefatlg-
al le In his eflorts during the past few
years towards securing for the Canadian apple industry some adequate
of protection.
ih Columbia, Ontario and No-
v. Scot a can supply completely all
tl. demands of the Canadian market
tor apples. Over a million dollars
oul of Canada annually for American apples.
•■ iwers deputation regards the
increased duty as "adequate protection," and are rejoicing at the successful outcome of their mission.

\t the lilth annual meeting of the
Commission of Conservation, Mr. H.
R. MacMillan, Chief Forester, Uritish
Columbia Forest Service, emphasized
the need for thorough supervision to
make a fire-ranging system really effective. He stated that, because of
lack of field supervision, more money
is being' wasted in tire protection,
ihan is used economically. While this
is a hroud statement, it is believed
that the tacts fully justify it.
Taking both Ontario and Quebec as
examples, there is good reason to be-
iicve that the amount of co-ordination between the head oflice and thc
field is too limited to exercise really
adequate supervision over thc tire-
ranglng staffs. The one great secret

All winter we have had iu bur midst
nearly tifly recruits in training for
service overseas. ln other centres
where those soldiers are being drilled
' the people were quick to realise that
R wus un to them to leave nothing
undone for the entertainment and
betterment of these brave follows who
as soon as called on arc ready for
their country's call ur.kl will go to
iigbt our batties for us at the front,
Revelstoke ut lust fell In line and
on Saturday night an entertainment
which wc sincerely hope may he the
first tn a series of such events, was
given in their honor. It has been the
intention' of Mrs. Lawson and MiEB
Lawson to give a concert to the recruits for some time. At lii st it was
thought to hold it iu the drill hail
but owing to the inclemency of the
weather and other conditions this
was not possible. At last througb
the kindness of Mr. W. E. Smythe
they were enabled to put on their
concert in the Empress theatre. Mr.
Smythe not only gave the theatre but
also extended passes to the local
recruits, the men ol the army service
corps and the bridge guards ami had
special scats reserved for them.
The picture that evening "The Im-
posters" represented h Jr.una of modern lite, n .st attractive to all who
witnessed ll on the screen. Thc pro
grim of vaudeville numbers took
place between the two sho\
can state With truth tha B M, r
performance was never given in Revelstoke.
Mrs. and Miss Law
told praise as the oi I of   the
idea to thus entertain our boys, and
leei   the recipients "f
many sincere encomiums on the
acter and  excellence  •[  the entertainment provided.
Miss Lawson, assisted by an orches-
tra,of live.' pieces I irnished music during the eni ire evening and this was
in no small measure conducive to the
pleasure of all present.
Mrs. Waiter Bews, wh ■ is always s
favourite with her audieuce, ojiened
the program and struck a
chord in each listener's heart by her
sympathetic rendering of th.it
war song "Knlttin Re i ling t'i
a very hearty encore she sang \cr.'
prettily "I'm Talking In My  Bleep."
The next number was a reading by-
Mr. Wm. Lawrence who in his usual
pleasing and entel r read
by request a  new juieni  'Tbe  Vacant
Chance,"    and     afti
'.'rom all present  re ponded   . th Robert Bervlce's poem "The Quitter."
Miss Madge Taylor gave an exhibl-
i Ion of Highland di aclng li   costume,
This      young      lady   is  always  hailed
with delight on her every appearanc i
and bids fair t'i rival hei talented
parents as an entertainer.
Mr. G. Ralph Lawrence was in excellent rotce and was never beard t..
bettei advantage In ins two numbers
"Somewhere a Voice ts Calling" and
•''Tbere Lei Me Rest."
There must have been a strong element    of     Bcotchmen In the th.atre

Struggling against the heaviest of
odds in almost every direction, the
last straw—that would have undoubtedly have been a heavier burden than
most could bear—beipp the threatened flooding with the dumped surplus
ot the north-western IMS..A. aji]ile ter- '
litories, who have forced production
beyond the point of profitable marketing even for themselves. The duty, !
which is a stroke of genius, will
save Canada a sum of hard cash estimated at one million dollars, will
infuse new life and enterprise into one
of tbe most important industries of
our province, and will strengthen
confidence in both the member and
the government that have once more

Canadian I'acitic financial statements
are among the best barometers of the
country's business. When trade is
dull there is less freight to haul, a
smaller number of passengers are carried and earnings consequently decrease. When business is good railway revenue reflects tbat condition.
The latest statement of the company will create a splendid impression abroad dt Canada's business and
linancial soundness during this period
of stress. It will serve, to allay any
uneasiness that may still be felt

New Basketball
Rules Prepared
The new set of rules has been pre-
' pared by officially appointed representatives of Lhe Young Mens Christian Association, Amateur Athletic
Union, and the National Collegiate
Association working together for tbe
best interests of the game. Tbere are
several changes in the rules from
those in use last year, notably, (1)
After a dribble a shot for the goal is
' permitted. (2) In course of a dribble
' the ball may be touched with both
bands. At the instant tbc ball ih
touched with both hands or comes to
rest in one hand the dribble tcrmin-
ites and tbe ball must be passed to
another player or thrown for the basket. CD A player is disqualified tor
committing tour personal fouls. (4)
On a sc called "jump ball" the jumpers must kee|) one hand behind the
back, neither may catch the ball until it has been handled by another
player. 151 In the situation commonly known as three men in, a foul is
committed only when the third play-
er charges in, and makes bodily compact with an opponent, fi) Oni a free
trial for goal, as soon as thc ball
bits the basket or background players
may enter the free throw lane. (7)
When tha referee bos awarded the bpll
to a player out of bounds an opponent may not touch it and so check
the play until his team mates have
j covered their opponents.
The   rules are very strict this year
' with regard to holding, blocking and
charging.   Tbe whole idea in tbis     is
to get away as far as possible   from
bodily contact in the  game. Tbis has
changed the game quite a little but it
is goinir  to  be a better game     when
thc players get the swing of the play. !
The rules have been tried out. all  over America  where they  are row  standard and they have been thought very
good,  fhn best that we have bad yet.
NM. doubt the rules will be  a   little
bard to live up to for a while     bc-
cause the  old  fashioned  checking   is
left out altogether and  the came has
become one  of passine and  dribbling,
making  it  faster  nri-1  far  less rough,
■ a cleaner game and one thnt will   be
: more enjoyed by the  good sportsmen
both  in the game nnd looking on.

0 neeci to ask if you want your little girl to
be bonny, plump and rosy-cheeked.   Of
course you do! Yet little folks'appetites
are "finicky'"' and sometimes turn from ordinary
foods. That is just the time to use FRY'S Pure
Cocoa. It makes a delicous food beverage that
no child can resist and its rich nourishment is
absorbed by the little body as eagerly as the
flowers drink in the spring rains. All good
grocers sell it, but, of course, remember
"Nothing will do but FRY'S"
