Ee  Well  Attended.
Sir Wilfrid Laurier Points Out Circumstances Under
Which This Measure in Coming Session Would Receive | ���o��-���*.
Same Treatment From Senate as Was Meted Out to
Naval Program���Bennett Stirs up Lively Scene.
Ottawa, 'June 5. ��� Sir Wilfrid
Laurier. in opening the debale on
Hon. Mr. Cochrane's motion that the
house should not concur in the senate amendments of the highway bill,
said il v as regrettable that there
should be a difference ol opinion between the commons and the senate on
this kill. He read to the house thc
bill as passed and reviewed the
amendments which had been made In
the upper phamber. He could not,
ho said, see wdiy tin- government de-
cllned lo put In the wording of the
bill that Which they Insisted lo put in
practice, namely, that the division of
the appropriation for good roads
should he on a basis of population.
Sir Wilfrid deall at length with the
Question of an appropriation among
the provinces by population basis, lie
said thai pressure had been put upon
i tli-e goveini'-eu' from some quarters
thai the .irib' tlon be not population
hon, ".-..nl. Cochrane: "That Is
not  true.1'
B. C's Position.
Sir Wilfrid held lhat such a demand had come from llrllish Colum
bla on the ground that road" were
more dillicull io build there than In
other provinces.
11 had heen said that lt would Le
more convenient to have the appropriation provided for in the supply gjj
hill, bul he would point out that Iho
Senate cannot amend the supply bill
and if llie supply bill of next year
should provide for an appropriation
in a basli dlfferenl from thai of this
year it would not he possible of
amendment by the upper house. The
whole supply b.ll would be thr, wn
Ihem ier llorden said that he had
already twice stated that, except for
exceptional circumsiuncea, be saw no
reason why the money should not be
appropriated on a population basis,
lt was curious that the leader of the
opposition did not. Insist ou this in
connection with the agricultural bill,
but did insist upon it In connection
wiih the highways bill
As for the contention that the sen-
ale could not amend the supply bill
Mr. Bordi ii said that the eenate could
reject tbe appropriation in the bill if
they thought it unjust no matter what
the bill itself might say. Ile ventured
to think that the senate had overstepped  the  limits  of  Its  power    In
amending this bill.
Dr. Clarke (Hed Deer) said that
the history of the parliament seemed
to be resolving Itself into a quarrel
be,ween the commons and the senate
and he di sired lo be on record Up
to now, hc said, histury was rather
on thc aide of llie senate. There had
been a good dial of unreality In the
attacks upon the oilier houst-. for il
better roads was the real aim of the
government they would not hesitate
to accept the senate's amendments,
The roads could wait as well as the
navy and lie thought the navy could
wait the best. They needed good
roads in this country and he saw no
r:ason why   this   amendment   could
no:  he accepted.
Stirs Up Scene.
iir. llennett, of Calgary, proceeded
to discuss the  recent election  in  Alberta, with the result that he stirred
up  quite  a  scene In  the  house.    He
said  thai  I'm    Liberal    workers    had
been sent Into the province from the
OUtSlde and  that    one    of    ihe    road
workers in    tlie    Clearwater    district
was now undergoing trial on a charge
of Impersonation.    Vet  this was    the
government   wiih   which   the   federal
government would  have     to deal,    if j
the spending of Ihe money was    left
entirely  under  the  control  of provln-1
clal governments,    in    closing.    Mr. i
Bennett remarked lhal one word from 1
Wilfrid to his servile majority in j
the senate  would secure the passage!
of a bill.
Speaker Sproule objected to the
word "servile" and Mr Bennett with-
drew ii.
Sir Wilfrid protested against the
i-liii'nn nl. taying. "The majority in
tin* s.-nate is quite Independent of me
and can  act  for itself.''
Hon. F. Oliver, who replied, made
reference to elecilons in Manitoba
saying thai in that province a min
who voted againat the Conservative
in vcnimfht was lucky if he kept out
of jail.
Hon. It. Rogers, aroso and in indignant 'ones said lhat no man had been
arrested In Maniioba who was not
known to he a political crook of long
Mr Oliver said the liouse would observe that when the Conservatives
wore met with the same kind of argu
n-.eiu that Mr. Bennett had used, ihey
did not like it. As for the minister
of public works, he had made a state
tmtu  which was absolutely untrue.

���statement was obtained from Acting

at the presi nt time:
"Various wild, unfounded rumors
beinr; in circulation as to the oredlt
of Burnaby, it seems necessary that
tin public should be made acquainted
witli  the  true  conditions.
"The credit of Burnaby is absolutely unimpain d, the bankers of the corporation having advanced all monies
asked for, and unsold debentures t.)
the amount of $1,716,000 are security
lor the advances made. The ( fundi
it the beginning of the year, considered it lo be in the best Interests of
ilu- residents of Burnaby to commence
work on the roads nnd waterworka and
Ill's purpose secured an advance
frchit the hankers at that time. No
difficult:, was anticipated in the disposal of the di benturrs.
"However, as it is the unexpected
which happens a period of financial
Stringency set in aud prevented the
sale except at an absurd price.
The monies advanced have now been
expended, and Ihe council considered
lhat the wisest course to adopt was
to close down all work as far as possible until Hie debentures had actually been sold and the proceeds placed
in the hands of the bankers. There Is
at the present time sufficient balance
in the hands of the bank to meet all
current  liabilities."

Real Estate Everywhere.
One amusing feature of the evening was lhe real estate transactor.
put through between William Hand-
cock, of New Westminster, and Councillor M&cpherson, It seems that Mr.
Handeock owns a half acre of land
near Royal Oak. for which he is as
sessed $900, After bilng ruled out of
order on Iwo occasions, the former
aid. rman of the Hoyal Cily managed
io get in his little say as to financial
matters, ending up with offering the
;ia:.d in question to the c. ::c:l for
the atv.otint he is assessed ni.
The words were hardly out of bis
mouth before Councillor  Macpherson,
; to use a sporting expression, called
his hand and informed Mr. Handeock
that a marked cheque would be waiting for him at the offices of Wilson &
Jameson, Rogers building, Vancouver,
at \i o'clock this morning. Later in
lhe evening, after Councilor Macpherson had informed the gathering that
in his cpinion taxes would be even
higher nexl year than this. Mr. Hand-
'cuok piped out, "Want to buy any
mere lots," which was received with
roars ot laughter.
Back to Business.
But to gst back to the council meet-
; Ing.
The trouble was in Ihe air from the
OUtsel for Councillor Macpherson
echoed the paving contracts, moving
a resolution that, owing to the financial stringency, Reevo McQregor
should lirst report back to the council the result of hia negotiations In
London before definite action was
taken on selling the bonds of the
latest hond Issue cf $5(10,001) Tor paving reads. Finding no seconder, the
Kdmonds gentleman remarked that
he would light this matter to the lasl
d till and gave notice of motion of
rcclndlng the calling for tenders for
the work.
More Trouble.
The reading of a letter from the
cLrk   of   Richmond   municipality   re-
Mr. Handeock next got a chance
and urged the councillors to show a
little patriotic pride by reducing their
own salaries and work more for the
Interests of the municipality. Mr.
Handeock. forgetting the reception of
Mr. Herd when commenting on school
matters, brought up thla subject,
which was ruled  out of order.
The municipal solicitor, "W. G. McQuarrie, was asked for a ruling, but
Acting Reeve Pan Vel stood firm and

alike in small settlements or in larger centres of production the co-operative principle is being recognized and
fruit farmers are banding themselves into societies whose
output will be administered by a central selling agency.

prominent men from the various public bodies in the
Fraser valley aimed among other things at securing the

How to Make It and How to Use It-
Cold  Frame Good for  Hardening Plants.
A  good hotbed  is a    very    handy
thing  on  the  farm,  and  it does  not
| take a great deal of time or trouble
[to make one.   When it Ib made, lf the
farmer himself has too much to do at
, .lie time the hotbed ls moBtly ln ubc
1 (and he generally  has)  he can hand
i it over to one of his boys and teach
I hlm how to propagate vegetable plant
from seed for planting outside as soon
as weather  conditions will  permit.
The hotbed should be made on the
south side of a good windbreak, and
I care should be taken to select a spot
i Abe-re the drainage is good.
Dig a pit about three feet deep, and
| eight to ten feet wide, and any length
desired. Board up the Bides to about
[a foot or sixteen inches on the north
side, and four to eight inches on the
si.il h side. This gives a slope from
i north tc touth so that the hotbed gets

Many Have Been Killed Through Ravages of Tick Paralysis.
Victoria, June 5.���A disease which
has been causing a number of deaths
among the sheep of the Interior, was
the subject of an interesting address
before the B, C, Veterinary Society recently by Dr. S. Bawden, first assistant pathologist. Dominion government experimental farm. Agasslz.
Dr. Bawden described his findings nt
some   length   nnd   said   tbat   he   had
proved    that    a    tick    (Dermaceutor

and infects sheep by biting them.    By
the experiments  made it  was  shown
thai  distinct advance had been made i
and   no   doubt   means   will   soon   be,
evolved to combat the disease, which ;
seems to affect the sheep ln the dry
belt    and    mountain reglonB of    the

Washington, June 5.-In accord with
suggestions of Attorney General Mc-
Keynolds, there was introduced today an anti-trust amendment to the
Underwood tariff bill, which would
levy a speclul additional excise tax on
a sliding or graduated scale, upon the
manufacture of tobacco, cigars, cigarettes and Bnuff. The amendment,
coming from a Democratic member,
will receive thorough consideration
from the finance committee.
Seventy million dollars was the
amount of the total excise tax last
year on tobacco products and Senator
Hitchcock has estimated that, If the
proposed tax had been levied ou last
year's business, the foreign trust concerns would have paid the additional
tax as follows: American Tobacco
, company, $7,500,000; Liggett & Myers. SS.100.000; I.orillard company. $1,-
144,000; American Snuff company,
$77,000; George W. Helme company,
$69,000; Woyman & Burton companv,
1' r,1.000.
The government already has the
machinery to enforce this tax. Tobacco and snuff manufactured in all
forms are under complete government
Control. The power to tax to the
���loint of destruction is unquestioned.
lt Is summary, simple and irresistible.
If il succeeds in this line of tariff, it
: may succeed in others.

One of Ihe first questions asked Mr.

said he did not believe the captain
had made any such statement and
that it was merely an attempt to have
people think that the expedition had
not been efficiently equipped. Said
Stefansson: "Due reason why 1 say
this is because I know the ship is a
good one."
During the interview Mr. Stefansson
slated that he would not be in touch

that such a project had been abandoned. However, he hopes to be Instrumental in having wireless stations

Cliff Spring Replaces Feeney at Centre

Two changes ore likely to be made
ln the line up of tke Salmon Bellies
for Saturday afternoon aud It Ib
thought theae wlll in the needful to
post the game as a, Westminster victory. I'at Feeney -will be moved up
In the horn* {flytakm, his pluce at
centre being' tUrt#' by Cliff Spring.
Doughy Ib Hhotftng '.himself to be
faster and Iff better shape than ever
and will make Matheson or Oorman
step lively If they wish to stay the
pace. The other change posaible will
be on the defence, where Johnny
Howard may be delegated to nuard
Lalonde, buck Marshall being shifted
to watch  Archie Adamsou.
Lalonde scored no less than four
goals last Saturday, although Iwo of
these were at long distance- and there
fore would have been stopped bad
llun Clark had his peering irons on.
Manager Clifford Is by no means certain of his line-up, however, and will
probably not announce it officially until a few minutes from the start.

Solution  of Anti-Alien Law
Washington, June 5. - The president
had a brief conference today witb
Secretary Bryan and an Informal talk
afterwards with Viscount Chlnda. He
had explained earlier that he did not
expect to make any official reply to
the Japanese ambassador but would
discuss the Tokio note orally.
Tbe preBlelint let it be known that
there was much matter for discussion in tho Japanese note, but that
none of the documents thus far exchanged by. the two governments had
in ilietnseivi s suggested a solution of
the land la-v difficulty. He Indicated
tint negotiations would proceed v.ery
slowly and carefully, with the view of
obtaining a frank expression of opln- i
lon by the two nations. Sooner or
later. II was Indicated, the meaning ol
the federal laws on naturalisation will
have to be determined by the courti

No suggestion of arbitrating the dlf-
flctlltles  has  thus far  been  made,  it'
w:>s learned authoritatively, hut the
White House officials today reiterated  their confident   expectation  of an
amicable adjustment  eventually.

Getting  Facts.
Senator Smcot gave the committee
the n Pines of many persons who had
called upon him on tariff subjects. He
said he had taken no part personally
:n the organization of any ficht against
fr< e sugar, and he did not know of
the existence of a lobby or thc use of
mom y, further than as public advertisements Indicated it.
Senator Williams, whose sub-com-
mlttee has had charge of the Income
tax feature of the tariff bill, expressed
the belief that there bad been an organized effort by the Insurance com-
iianles to rally policyholders against
the income tax. Insurance officials
probably will be asked to appear later.

Gold   is  one ol   the  heaviest  sub-
I stance's   in   nature   and   while   being
! carried   down  the   slopes   by   newly-
| born streams it continually forms deposits, the stones ami sand with which
it  is  environed being  carried  farther
by   tho   water.     Often   the   gold   has
been carried into the placid breast ol
a lake, and then spread into a stratum
upon its lloor.    After many years th-
depression  has  been  tilled,   the   lake
disappears and a stratum of mud or
shallow earth forms over the stratum
uf gold-bearing  sand.    The  gold   has
been   ground   into   veritable   dust,   although it lias been common enough to
dis,-.,ver large  nuggets  in  placer dig-
In placer mining, whatever may 1>"
the character of the ground worked,
whatever  may  be  the  nature  of  the
tools employed,  whether in dry  diggings or wet washings, the Inct that

rent roll off on top is the phenomenon
upon which all the means of extricat-
, ing the metal from it.* silt are based.
! Th- early mining of Asia Minor was
dry and done with a knife and  pal).
The miner  loosened the goU-bearing
earth, filled his pan and winnowed it
I against   u   strong   wind,   the   heavy
gold  particles  lulling  upon  an  am-
i mal's hide spread  at his lot.
The miners have a winnowing machine arranged with screens of different   sir.es   of   mesh,   and   a   revolving
Inn.   The earth is sifted through from
one grade of  uu-sh  to another,  the
gravel  ami  sand  being blown  out id
the  end  of  the  box,  while  the  gold
finds its wsy below and is caught in
the  bottom.
The great source of placer gold-get-   M����-"
ting, however, is through  the separation  of  the  metal  from  its saii'ls by
the aid of water; and lhe most primitive utensil  hy  which this is effected
is   the   pan���a  Blrong,' round,   sheet-
iron vessel, holding about half a peck.
The   miner   fills   this   with   what   he
thinks is gold-bearing earth, takes it
to  the  creek   and   -inks   it   under  the
water.  Then In* shakes it slightly, inclining the side nearest lum upward
and tic sand and mud begin to spill
out   over   the   farther   run      He   continues tiie operation until hut a table-
spoonful "f Hn  contents remain, when
a' slight turn of the pan discloses the
gold,  if there  is  any.
The next most simple and useful implement used in placer mining, is the
rocker���a  wooden  box  on  a   pair <!
rockers, with a hopper at on,* end, Bel

Robert Falcon Scott wiib born at
Outianda, Devonport, a naval station
on the southern coast of England, 4fi
years ago, June 6. 1888. Ills career
as an antarctic explorer began in 1900
when he headed Ihe English expedition that sailed on the crude wooden
whaler Discovery and established a
"farthest south" record. A born leader of men, a physical and mental stalwart, feiirleis yet never rash, determined, but always sympathetic, Captain Scott was the ideal figure of an
explorer. The long roll of modern
martyrs to icleiice begins with tho
heroic Brunn, mute and defiant in his
pyre of flames, and ends gloriously
with  the  Ice-enshrouded  Scott.
Canada and   Australia,  as   well  as
the  United   Kingdom,  have joined  In
bestowing honors and  more substan- ,
tial  appreciations on the families    ofl
Scott and others who lost their lives

created a Knight Commander of the >
Hath,  as  he  would   have  been  If he
had  lived.
The king's prerogative of bestowing
a title upon a woman is rarely exer-
deed.    The last  noteworthy  Instance '
of  this  kind  was  in   1891,  when  thej
widow   of  Sir  John   Alexander   Mae- i
'lonald, Ihe great Canadian statesman,;
was made a peeresses, becoming Bar-

Smith,   leader   in   the   commons,

Perhaps the lirst notable case of
the conferring of a title upon the
widow of a great mnn was in 1801,
when the widow of Sir Ralph Aber-
croby, killed in the battle of Alex-
indiia, was made a baroness. The
bestowal of titles ou women whose
husbands were living ha,i been of rare
occurrence, but there have been several such cases. One of the most
noteworthy was the conferring of the
title of viscountess on Mrs. Disraeli

Ottawa, June 6.���-Cattle raisers In
almost all'parts of Canada aro familiar with the small lumps that appear
on the backs of their animal during
the whiter months and from which
white grubs or maggots emerge at a
later date. Many theories exlBt as to
the exact life hlBtory of the Insect,
known na the warble fly, of which the
white grub Is tho larva.
The opinion generally held that the
eggs are laid on the bnckB of the cattle, and wheu hatched work their way
beneath the skin, Ib proved by careful
Investigation to be Incorrect. Dr.
Seymour lladwln, first aBslstant pathologist of the health of animals branch
of tho Dominion department of agriculture, who haB studied the subject,
claims that the eggB are hot laid on
the back, but on the legs of the cuttle.
This appears to bear out tbe theory
that the newly hatched insects are
licked by the animals and thus taken
Into the system and ultimately And
tlieir way to the hacks, where they develop beneath the skin.
The matter of chic! Importance to
the cattle raiser Ib not the exact
course taken by the Insect within the
body of the cattle beast, but rather
the economic effect of the grubB upon
the business of cattle raising. To
throw light on this phase of the subject Dr. lladwln has written a bulletin, which Is numbered 18 of the health
of animals branch, dealing with the
���eonomio  aspect  of warble  tiles.

by fruit growers and others dealing
with the Okanagan, telling of the progress of the valley during recent
The commission sat in the newly
erected board of trade building, and
were welcomed to the city by Mayor
J. W. Jones. In the course of hiB remarks his worahlp pointed out that
there were no BlgbB of a Rip Van
Winkle stage in the Okanagan, as
during last year In the Kelowna dls
trlct no less than 65,000 fruit trees
had been planted, making a total of
more than 450,000.
There wero 60,000 acreB of land
suitable for agricultural and horticultural purposes, two-thirds of which,
at a conservative estimate, could be
brought under cultivation. The district was Irrigated more or less by
four large systems, which lt had been
suggested should be merged and taken over by the government. There
was a Btrong feeding in favor of this.
Advocates Draining
Mr. Jones strongly advocated the
draining of land to the south of Kelowna by a lower water table. The
low-lying lands adjacent to the Okanagan lake could be reclaimed and this
land was most fertile. The matter
had already been taken up with the
provincial government.
Refl rring to tlie commercial and
tourist hotel It was purposed to erect
ut Kelowna to meet a long-felt need
his worship stated that plans were
now being discussed, and this scheme
would take definite shape at an early
In the com-"" of an interview after
the commission had sat, the chairman
spoke most optimistically of the posi-
bilitiea of the Okanagan valley.
What was wanted, he said, waa cooperation, and hc expressed the opinion that the newly organized central selling agency would certainly
tend to overcome the difficulty.
He strongly advocated the adoption
of mixed farming. There was no rea
son, he said, why thousands of dollars should be spent in importing produce which could well be obtained in
the valley  itself.
