One writer suggesis '.John Oliver,' 'Flirt' or 'Dashing Wave,'  'John Oliver' it.is presumed because it has acquired the same  knack of disappointing the public; 'Flirt', because it goes from  one side to the other; 'Dashing Wave', well why should it gel  such aliame?

Refrallick, until recently public utilities commissioner for  British Columbia, .sang his official  swan song to the civic finance committee yesterday through .the medium  of a letter which announced that the  provincial legislation had abolished-  the office.  In view of the negotiations which  "Mayor Gale is endeavoring to conduct,  at Ottawa with Hon J. Jo. Reld.- the  federal minister of    raih.;a:ys,    there  was a strong note of hope as  'of   underlying  motive  in   th>3>  that' provided ihe federal authorities !A  The passing of an act to prevent  litigation in the contested matter of  the Dolly Varden mine at Alice Arm  again directs attention to the romantic history of this concern, and its  richness in ore reserves.  The completion of tlie railway from  tidewater to the camp,   1.8/-miles inland, and the provision of aerial tram  and  ore  bins  by  the Taylor Mining  Company marked a memorable phase  iii the complicated story of this mine  property.    The Taylor Mining    Com-  a sort ipany,   with  a  regist,ered:   capital   of  letter, | $1,500' 110, under the presidency    of  J.

W.  Robertson read an address expressive  of their regret that she had resigned  as organist, after four-.years of efficient and faithful servie?, which had  been grea,tly appreciated by the choir  and congregation. ' Xt the proper  time Mrs. Bedlow'presented Miss McCallum with an .ivory manicure set.  Miss McCallum was... quite taken by  surprise, but her father Mr. Alex. McCallum on her behalf expressed his  daughter's appreciation of their gift.  Tho Mr. Ilolierlsoa'.addressed Mr.  McCallum referring to. his active and  faithful service in the church and  community, Mrs. Bedlow presenting  him with a fountain pen. Mr. McCallum had no idea of this mark of  appreciation but in a few happy  words thank'S-d all for the unexpected  appreciation of his services'.   '  , A short-programme was then proceeded with  in which the following  took  part:   piano  due,  Mrs.   Bedlow  and Mrs. McGowan; piano solos, Mrs-:  Whitchelo a.nd Miss Helen McCallum  Songs, Mrs. Teng, Mrs. Bedlow, Mrs:  Ileith, Mrs. Groat and Mr. J.

April 2 7.���������Interest has been  oi-nlered-. the* past few days, in mining circles on the district, known as  the "2?<" by the announcement conveyed to the secerlary of the Hope  Prospectors' Association in a. communication from the Provincial Government that the government engineer has been instructed to survey  and build a road from Hope to this  locality and on through to Pentic-  ton, 'the road ultimately to form a  portion of the Trans-Canada Highway..' Hope prospectors and mining  men are jubilant over the news. If  has created mor.e enthusiasm in mining than any other local happening  within the past .three or four years.  Considerable gravel is being hauled  on the Huntingdon Riverside road  between Abbotsford and.. Matsqui.  and  with about 40,000 tons of proved ore  of shipping grade in the Dolly Varden, averaging about $40 per ton:  and in the Wolf 120,000 tons, averaging J 5 oz. silver per ton.  The Taylor company took over  the mines when the previous controlling power defaulted on payment s amounting to $462,000.  Since then (he property has developed into a regular "wondar mine", j  A recent government, report states: '  "Five months from the time work I  started 6,.173 tons of ore had been j  shipped that will yield aproximately j  ���������100,336 ounces of silver; 'about forty;  tons of this was "bonanza ore." '  Tho following analyses indicate'  the character of the ore; Dolly Var-j  den, silic.ia, 74.4 per cent; iron, 7 j  per cent.; lead 1.20 per cent;  0.63 per cent.; gold, 0.0021 oz.  ver, 3 6.4 oz.  Wolf:   Silicia,  80.4  per  0.2  per cent.;   lead,   1.2 5  zinc, 0.4 1 per cent.; gold; 0.0006 oz.;  silver, 3.1 oz to 15.3 oz.  Those mines are amongst the most  valuable silver properties developed  in the province. In general, as compared with the Dolly Varden, the  Wolf is relatively considerably larger  in tonnage and lower in value, but of I  profitable milling grade.  and Mrs. Bannerman, was united in  marriage to Mr. Frank Walter Brown  Rev.

Premier John Oliver thinks the public will think as he  doez���������that, there is nothing in the Elliott charges. Many people are not saying-much; just waiting and watching how the  two men are washing their "dirty linen" These men to all appearances have in the past been political friends, but Elliott  no doubt is "getting a nice little sum for looking after the interests of. the company with foreign capital invested in the Dolly  Varden mines, and of course wants to earn his money for the  firm the same as any other honest lawyer would want to do.  Bering, formerly connected with the present Liberal government  he undoubtedly is familiar with much that the public or members,  outside of the government know nothing about. It gives him.  somewhat' of a leverage as it were to gain what he demands  from the Oliver government, or he thinks it does. Bowser put  it about right when he said it was a 'personal matter' between  the premier and the lawyer.  The public will watch with interest for Oliver's explanation  when it does come.

Amending Canada's Constitution���������Whether they will agree-  to the Dominion government approaching the Imperial Parliament with a reeiuest for powers whereby Canada can amend  her own constitution is a question now under the consideration  of the various provinces. The replies are not expected to in  unanimous.  When Australia and South Africa adopted their Dominion  constitutions.they took powers to amend them without resort tc  the Mother-Parliament. Sringent safeguards were, provided sc  that amendment would take place only after lengthy consideration. Australia has, however, already amended her constitution  and may do so again.  Canada, on the other hand, must apply to Westminster when  she wishes to alter the terms of the British North America Act.  The application is a formality and is always granted if all Canadian parties are unanimous upon it. Nevertheless, a more jeal  ems public opinion now growing up object s to the formality, as  indicative of Canada's "inferior, status," and would abolish it.  The difficulty will lie in securing unanimous assent to the  proposal. Saskatchewan already has declareel that it prefers the  constitution of the Dominion should" be amended only by the  Imperial Parliament upon reeiuest. But the chief objection  wiil naturally come from Quebec. Under the British North A-  ]>���������.erica Act Quebe-e, is secure in certain rights and privileges. 11  knows that no amendment will-be granted by the Imperial Parliament if it objects. On the other hand, if the power of amending the constitution were given to Canada Quebec might find  itself unable to prevent changes to which it profoundly object- .  ed.  It is possible that safeguards could be devised to overcome  Quebec's distrust. But before these can be accepted much water  I'luM. flow under the Quebec bridge.

Dennis tells of Ii:t:et: xo  , tion. <'���������  Just why the farmers of tlie   jem territory of the prairie provi.-'.JCi  ar,e clamoring for further extensions  of the  existing   irrigation    schemes  was   made    clear   recently,    when  Col. ,J.  S.  Dennis, of the  C.   P.   It.  Department .of Colonization and De  ivelopment, addressed the  Sand atludents of Macdon  Ste. Anne de Bellevue, on  iin the west.     The large  'listened Interestedly to  which    was    admirably  ,'w.ith a series of lantern slides   depicting the progress of the C. P. R.  'irrigation system and the fruits   of  this method <of farming.  The speaker divided his discourse  under three heads, dealing with the  introduction of irrigation in Alberta  by the C.P.R., and tho motives  which had induced him to recommend and urge this; the success as  proved by the company but the temporary failure of some settlers duo  to lack of experience in the application of water and cycle of wet years;  the reversal of opinion after practi-,  cal tests, and the consequent overwhelming demand for. further irrigo-;  tion projects on the prairie.  "For a long ,time," said Col. Den-  ais' "there were many "who claimed  that' irrigation was unnecessary in  Western Canada. Bocause conditions of drought do not regularly occur there, they argued, there was not  ..he same urgency for irrigation as  in other less fortunately situated  countries where the rainfall is usu-  illy so small as to make agriculture  practically impossible without artificial application. It is rather gratifying now," said the speaker, rem-  iniscently, "in view of this tremendous . opposition, to see the radical  rigiht-aibout-face in sentiment and to  hear these same men assert that  practically the whole of the south  country needs irrigation - to make  agriculture permanently successful.  ���������The experience of the past two years  with a rainfall in Southern Alberta  of less than 10 inches, and the .bumper crops raised by irrigatiomsts, is  ���������responsible in no small measure for  this great change in opinion.  Outlining the extent of the semi-  arid portion of the province of Alberta, which he stated stretched 160  miles north of the American boundary and from tjie Rocky Mountains  to the Cypress Hills in Saskatchewan, the speaker stated that Amen-  .can irrigation engineers of prominence, after investigating conditions  thoroughly, had given it as thea  opinion that the rainfall was insufl indent to follow farming Pror'tabo.  and the question to be decided ^ s  not whether water was needcd1) *t  rather just how long tins teratoid  could grow any kind of crops wiuh-  out irrigation. ,  "Irrigation, when practically applied, is the best kind of farming,  ���������said the colonel with conviction, because it is the only system that Demits of the most intelligent treatment of every individual crop to suit  !)ts own requirements. It eliminates  'the necessity of summer fallow and  'elaborate treatment of lhe .soil to  conserve moisture. It is quite agreed  that mixed farming is the basis ot  'agrlcultuval prosperity and thls.sys-  tem nourishes splendidly underirrigation In the raiising of special tedder crops which it is difficult to raise  without water.  "In every case where it has been  put to the test in competition with  ordinary farming methods, irrigation  has been proved to increase-production from 25 to 100 per cent. This  accounts. for the fact that in the irrigation belt land is being sold for  considerably over $100 per acre, and  that farms are seldom offered for  sale even at that price, the owners  being reluctant to sell. The "Deth-  bridse Herald," by careful compilation, placed a conservative estimate  pf $54.71 as the average value of the  production on an acre of the %l,l������o  acre "tract.    Oases were ms.ny where  SJ'S'DK^NIS-OM  C^l'sT-idOHMiaBlONBD  C0LOM12AT1ON A DEVCLOftWtr  potatoes yielded $170 to the acre, el-"  faLfa $125, and wheat $105 per acre.  The annual report Issued by the  Board of Trade in this same city  contains a comparative statement  showing the results of crops grown  on dry and irrigated land and gives  tho following increases of crops  grown under irrigation:���������Wheat 28  bushels, ot 77 per cent.; oats, 38  bushels, or 54 per cent; barley, 35  bushels or 80A per cent; peas, 14  busihels, or 51 per cent.; potatoes,  250 bushels, or 105 per cent.  "The Canadian Pacific irrigation  scheme in Southern Alberta Col.  Dennis signalized as the largest individual project on the American Continent, with an area greater than the  whole irrigated area of Colorado or  California. Tho irrigable area totals  more than 600,000 acres whilst- the  aggregate length of its canals and  ditches is greater than Canada's  longest river or the rail distance  from "Vancouver to Halifax. To this  original block a further area of 100,-  000 acres in the Lethbridge district  was added when the C. P. R. took  over the block originally developed  bv the Alberta Railway and Irrigation Company, and this has shown  the same remarkable progress and  prosperity.  "Agitation at the present time is  for further i-r ligation and quick irrigation," continued Col. Dennis. "Farmers claim with justification that  it is a life and death issue with them.  If they are to remain on the land  thev must have it; if they do not get  it the only thing to do is get out.  That the Provincial Government  realizes this also is very evident  from the faet that tliey have energetically taken up the new projects.

Dennis in concluding, "was put into  the irrU'aijon scheme by the C.P.R..  but it has proved a sound proposition The bumper crops raised on  these irrigated farms, the high pricea  at which The land is held, the reluctance on the part of farmers to sell,  and, above.  all, the general clamor in  the south country for schemes to include the greater part of the south  territory all prove that the Initiative  and foresightcdness which promoted  the project are now appreciated and  rewarded."

If, as he believed, the mail'.order houses were  being served by the postofflccs at less  than cost, the sooner a change was  made the better.  OTTAWA, April 28.���������That the  Canadian government, through the  operation of carrying goods for mail  order houses at less than cost, was  thereby bonusing the operation ot  such places of business, was the  charge made in the senate today by  Senator William Proudfoot.  Senator Proudfoot said that, when  in the Ontario legislature, he had advocated each municipality placing a  tax on mail order houses for the right  to sell goods in the municipalities.  Local merchants received their goods  by freight and the rates had been  twice raised since 1918, once by 15  per cent, and once by 25 per cent.,  while the postal rates had not been  increased. So mail order houses were  able to ship catalogues and goods  through the mails at the old rates.  He understood that these goods wera  carried for the mail order houses at  1:S3 than the cost of transportation,  and in this way the government was  bonusing the operation of mail order  houses by millions of dollars annually.  He was the more ready to believe  Toronto,  April 28.���������A    resolution  moved by If.
