Canada will this week offer its glad hand. oi.  welcome to Lord Byng of Vimy and Lady Byng  The new Governor-General will be met at  Quebec by Premier Meighen and members ot  his cabinet while a salute of 19 guns will be  fired from the citadel. " Lord Byng will then  be officially sworn into office, and will then  repair to the Government House where he will  be the guest of honor at a state dinner. The  new representative of His' Majesty should  prove just as popular with the people of Canada as he did with our gallant sons who  served under him during the war, and he has  intimated that he is looking forward with  eagerness to again meeting some of his old  comrades. Lord Byng has had an enviable  career in the army and his genial personality  is bound to radiate wherever he goes. It is  hardly likely .that he will make his first official visit to the coast-before, the Spring of next  year, but whenever he selects to be our guest,  he is assured of a warm loyal welcome.  Some time ago a committee of Vancouver-  ites 'journeyed to Victoria for the purpose of  "appealing to the Hon. John Oliver, to provide funds for the completion of the University of British Columbia. In turning down  the request in. his own affable way, the premier voiced the opinion that the ratepayers  of Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, wore apparently very little interested in education,  when they had repeatedly turned down money  by-laws for school, purposes. Be this as if  may, but is. this a sufficiently strong argument  for the government" to raise, as an excuse to  discontinue the building of the university?  Educational facilities are the greatest asset  any community can have, and it is humiliating  for Canadians to be forced to accept the offer  of the University of Oregon which has thrown  open its doors to the overflow of B. C. university students. Patriotism alone, if nothing-  else, should be a strong enough cause, for the  premier to see the light, and go ahead with  ���������our own university buildings, in order that  our younger generation may finish their education at home, in Canadian halls of learning,  'instead of being .forced to accept, the hospitality of a foreign country.  Various methods are    being used    by    the  manufacturers of the province to induce the  public to purchase Made in B. C. goods in preference to outside products.    Chief of these,  are the exhibits of British Columbia products  that have been shown in   various cities   and  towns during the past.few months, and the  car of manufactures    that is    being    taken  through the interior for demonstration  purposes at the present time. Both systems are to  : be. commended but the weakest spot in  the  whole scheme for advertising B. C.  products  to the consumer is the propaganda that is' being issued by the Manufacturers'  bureau of  the Vancouver Board of Trade for insertion  in the newspapers throughout the province.  This news service, which is issued regularly,  1 has been compiled  .apparently for the   benefit of the daily papers only, and as the majority  of the items   contained in the   news   letters  are of little interest to the average consumer,  there is no doubt that a large proportion of  the sheets sent out, eventually find their way  to the W. P. B. of the editors of the weekly  papers.    From the standpoint of the weekly  papers, the items contained in this news letter or service, cease to be news by the time  it reaches the editor's desk, and besides being of little interest, the most of it would not  make good "fillers.." While there is no doubt  but what publicity is the greatest  factor in  the promotion of business today, it is logical  to suggest to the manufacturers, that low prices and good quality will have a more direct  influence on   the  consumer  toward  persuading  him   to  buy goods  manufactured  within  the province, than all the news letters that  the Vancouver Board of Trade committee can  compile.  The policy of buying home products is undoubtedly good business on the part of the  manufacturers,'but'history has shown that it  is a hard matter to educate the people to buy  products made at home at such a price when  for a lower cost they can purchase goods  made outside the province. The same effort  was made in the Province of Ontario a few  years back and.with very excellent results.  There the manufacturers did not depend on  poorly written news notes to .drive home "t?>*  fact that Ontario made goods were just as  good if not better than those produced elsewhere, but the people all over Ontario were  brought face to face with the buy at home  made products through the medium of well  written advertisements  thait appeared week  after week in every paper in the Province both  daily and weekly. This direct advertising,  while costly no doubt reached all the people,  and not just a few residents of the cities, for  the people outside the cities are buying goods  as well as those living within the realms of  commercial  activity.-  A few weeks ago this paper agreed with  with Premier Oliver that the administration  of the liquor, act was not in the hands of the  best administration that the province could  give and lamented the fact 'that.-the newspapers, were not giving the new liquor act the  support that the' honorable premier expected.  But what we said was' mild to the following  which is taken from the Enderby Commoner,  and reads as-follows:  In a public speech made one day last week.  Premier Oliver is reported to have complained  somewhat, bitterly of the lack of support the  newspapers of the Province are giving to the  ���������Moderation Law, and-stating that if the law.  proves a failure, the responsibility will,rest  upon the newspapers and not upon the government. This seems a surprising statement  for the Premier to make. ������������������ Undoubtedly the  successful operation of the Moderation Act in  the estimation of the Government-must be  measured by the amount of profit the government liquor stores turn in to the provincial  treasury. This means that the more booze  the people of the Province drink the greater  will "be the success of the .government liquor  stores.  Let's bavc an understanding of the operation of this Moderation /Vet, then we shall sec  how near right Premier Oliver is in his statement that the press of flwe Province is'not  giving the liquor law the support it should. ,  Booze is manufactured by privately-owned  distilleries, operated for- private gain���������and  big gain. .It" make's no difference to the distillers who sells their product; the government store or over the bar of the hotel keeper; it is sold at a profit in either case. The  liquor "store, in turn, retails the booze in a  bottle' at a profit���������and a big profit.  Get this clearly in your mind. Every turnover of the booze is at a profit���������and a big"  profit���������to somebody. In the past three or four  years the liquor industry has had more free  jmb'lcity in the n'ewspapers than any other industry, and is still receiving it, baited up by  a government that has frankly' admitted it is  in the liquor business to "make a profit.-    We.  read the newspapers of the Province, ;ahd; fail  to see wherein they-are--w^hholdihg-.-supiJbrt"  to the government for'the/Moderation. Act���������  as a law���������bue'not asa booze-vending'proposit-  ion at a profit. ' There is a vast difference between what constitutes support of a law and  the boosting of an enterprise that is' in business to make^ a turn-over of booze at a profit.  If this is the.kind of publicity Premier   Oliver  is after for his Moderation, measure, he will  have to pay for it the same'.as anyone else in  business at a profit.   And he can   spare himself the effort to shift the: responsibility for  the enforcement of the liquor act and the success of the liquor stores.'  : Perhaps the support of the newspapers is essential, as Premier Oliver ylutes, but in this connection, so is  a supply of booze essential to the enforcement  of the act--and the Government has to buy  its stock of booze���������at a profit to the manufacturer���������so that it may sell it���������at a profit���������to  the individual.    When the Government is prepared to give its boozo to the individual free  of charge no doubt the newspapers will then  give the Government free publicity to encourage support for the Government liquor stores.  New York umbrella-makers' who have been  hard by the dry season purpose negotiating with "Rain maker" Hatfield to establish  rainmaking plants throughout the country.  ���������Vancouver Province.  The hint may be all right from the Province  to the people of Vancouver, but with a liquor  store in'Mission City and one in Abbotsford,  there is little need of a rainmaker in this neck  of tiie woods in order Lo keep it wet.  An enterprising outside man for a local taxi  firm pulled a good one on his opposition at  the C. P. R. station, at Mission City recently,  When a prosperous looking 'gentleman stepped off the morning train, all the taxi men  were hot after him as a fare. , He-passed-them  all up until he reached the keen witted one,  who got his business by crying out "Free taxi  to the'Government Liquor Store."  A movement is.on foot .to."have a photographed copy of, the resolution drawn up in  -the handwriting of the Hon. John Oliver, re  the "Nicomen Island dyke, presented to the  British Columbia Legislature to be hung a-  long side of the Belgium neutrality pact and  other "scraps of paper."  San Francisco harbor men were successful  last week in pulling a bark from the Beach.  But it would take a lot of pulling on the part  of B. C. people to pull Oliver from the plow.

LOVELY   LAKE WINDERMER  urr  Lake    Windermere   district,   ju^t  west of the Canadian Rockies, seems  well on the  way to become  one of  the most popular summer resortt in  British Columbia-, or in fact Western  Canada.   It lies in a Valley, the stillness of which had not been broken  by the sound- of a locomotive  until  live years ago, like some beautiful  thing slumbering and knowing nothing but a few scattered settlements.  Fort Kootenay, it is true was constructed   as  far "back 'as-. 1807,   but ���������  David Thompson, the explorer; who  built that fort, could foresee no more  than   the   Indians   with   whom   he  . traded  what  the  Valley  could  give  to   mankind.     The   Kootenay   Trail,  commonly known as the Old  Whiskey Trail  ran  from  Fort  Steele  to  Windermere, then across the Rockies  by way of the Sinclair Canyon and  the Kootenay River to the construction gangs of the Canadian  Pa .-if it-  Railway.   ' Whiskey, of  course,  was?  contraband   in   those  days,  and   the  trail resulted in much  profit  to H-������'  bootleggers.  R. Randolph Bruce, C.L., r'.RAi.b.,  cf Invermerc, saw the possibilities  of this highway, he knew it was time  the old pony trail should bo replaced  Lake Windermere, B.C.  Windermere Camp.  V  by a good motor road, and through  ,his efforts in 1905 the Canadian l'a  cific Railway, and the Government  of British Columbia .ultimately* took  the nistter up. Work was commenced on the British Columbia end  of the motor road in 1911, but tho  work was done very intermittently  owing to lack of funds, and the war  The ^district is opened sufficiently  now to revel in good roads, and the  acenic points of interest can be  reached comfortably.  Pending the completion of the  Banff-Windermere Road, autos can  be shipped by rail between Baal'f. or  Lake Louise to Golden on the 'Can-'  adian Pacific Railway. Froni Golden  the highway connects with tho  Columbia Valley Road, via Windermere road. Lake Windermere has  much to offer the tourist, and lover  of nature, for the country is varied.  for sports and amusements, and accommodation can be had to suit.all  ���������tastes,-hotel, 'or camp life if preferred.  Invermere is the station which is  Tthe key to this-Utopia of the Colum  (bia  Valley,  a   tiny structure   which  Hooks like a toy, and is rather a re-  Hief after the noise and, hustle of  larger-ones, and savors of the coun-  ,try. As soon as one alights, from  fthe train, and begins to wonder  where the .town; hotel, or any semblance of-civilization is, you are ap-  iproached by a man who asks if you  /wish accommodation at the hotel or  Lake Windermere Camp, and at the  fame time he satisfies your curiosity  by adding "A drive of a mile must  jb������ taken  of twenty-five bungalow cabins for  living purposes, with a central club  house for dining, dancing and social  recreation. The site of the camp lies  along a natural terrace overlooking  the lake. The cabins are below the  club house on the shore of the lake  among the pines. The site is ideal,  and it is a pleasant change to have  your own little cabin, an artistic  affair made of logs and stained  wood, instead of the ordinary hotel  room.  Looking at Lake Windermere  gives one a sense of peace and calm.  This valley is miles and miles in  length and pastoral in its beauty.  The lake stretches out a scintillating  sheet of water, situated as few lakes  in Canada1 <or the United States.  "Beautiful" does not describe it,  "grand" and "unique" are adjectives  more apt. It is unique in that thp  pastoral, the ragged and magnificent  are all combined. Directly from the  shores of the lake, undulating slopes,  or benches rise, well treed -with  spruce, pines and fir, open fields are  seen here and there along -these  benches, and some are cultivated.  Above rise the hills well timbered,  and above the hills tower the moun-*  tains, as if guarding the quiet pastoral lands below, from intrusion  of the outside world. The lake and  valley has indeed a perfect: setting  with the Canadian Rockies to the  east, and the equally. spectacular  Selkirks on the west. The end of-the  valley in which this^lake lies appears  closed with the hills and mountains,  but it'is not so, for an exceedingly  good motor road runs beside.; the  lake, along Grassmere Lake and by  the shores of Columbia Lake, and  motor boats as well as oars can ply  I. S������aka Windermere Camp consists to Canal Flats at the head of. Colum  bia Lake, and the source of the b������m-  tiful   Columbia  river.  Those who have seen this - lake  say it is the most superb bit of  scenery in the Rockies or Selkirks.  It lies not far distant from th������ town  of Invermere, a good auto road goes  half way, ponies and pack : train  penetrate beyond. Ice caves surpassing those of the Alps are here,  beauties which tourists cross oo������  tinents to see; lie-practically at fcb*  door of the little town of Invermer*  The links are on, the promontory  where the camp is located. The point  was called Kath-tow-hah-lait.--and-,by  the way it is on the historical sita  of Fort Kootenay, which was commenced in 1807 by David Thompson,  astronomer, and surveyor, of -ih������  North West Trading Company. After eight tiers of logs were put together for the warehouse, the project was abandoned on that- site and  Fort Kootenay was built two miles  north in the same year. David  Thompson was the first white man  in the country, and t,t was he who  discovered the Columbia rhrer^ The  golf course is nine holes, and surely,.:  no course has a more beautiful situa- '  tion. The fishing is good in many  of the lakes in this district, and for '���������<  big game hunting the adjacent coun- "  try holds out every inducement to  those who are keen for this sport.      J  As  said before, ��������� this  district ��������� has  everything from Glacial regions, to'  hot springs.    Sinclair-Hot Springs ���������  has a.concrete swimming bath which ���������  attracts   many  en   account  of  th������  curative properties   of* the   water.  Fairmont to the south also has hot '  springs.- The water in Lake Windermere averages about sixty-eight do-v  greea, affording good bathing whicfe  ja unusual is mountainous regions.  A l/sgal action of more than ..passing interest was entered in the courts  last week,' wherein Edwin Joseph  Smith aged 18 of Hatzic through his  father, seeks_to recover tho sum of  $5,000 or the value thereof, from  Frederick James Hallady also of Hatzic. The interests of the plaintiff are  being looked after - by Mr. E. W.'  Bigelow 'while A. -3. .Duncan is acting for the defendant.  The case is bound to. create a lot  of interest in the district as both  are known to almost every fruit  grower. The exact, date for the  hearing of the action could not be  learned at time of going to press.  The events leading up to the entering of this legal action, read, like  a chapter from the pen of Sir, Arthur Conan Doyle and other well-  known writers'of detective stories.  Before young Smith graduated from  Oundle College in Northamptonshire,-  his father who is a director of Vick-  errs: Limited, the big English -sh!*,  building firm, had already mapned  out his career for him, and, toward  that end,'he'caused to be inserted in  the "London .Times", ��������� an'advertisement to the'effect that he was'anxious to engage":'someone to teach his  son fruit farming.  This advertisement came    to    the  notice  of  Frederick James  Hallady;  who had been    residing in    England  for. about ten years, and he at once  got in touch with Mr, Smith and as-  a result a deal was made between the  two.    By the terms of this agreement  Mr.   Hallady     undertook     to     teach  Smith  junior the  mysteries  of  fruit  farming  and   British   Columbia   was  selected as the spot of operation. In  return Smith senior agreed to furnish the sum. of  $5,000  foi- the nur-  pose of buying a suitable farm which  was  to   be  owned  jointly  by   Smith  junior and P. J. Hallady, the latter  agreeing to put    $1,000    into    the  scheme.    This agreement which  was  drawn up    about Oct.  15  1920,  was  duly signed  at   London,  one  of the  ;!clauses   appointing   Halladr guardian  of young Smith,  who  was  then  1 7 years of age.  Six   days   after   young  Smith   left  college,   the   party   which   cansisted  of himself and  Mr. and  Mrs.  Halla-  day, sailed for Canada,    the    elder  Smith, having donated    $150.00    toward the expenses "of the Hal la days'  journey across the water.  In Mission Distrtct  Eventually  the party reached   the  shores  of  Canada,  and  at once  entrained for the coast. Arriving here,  Mr.  Halladay at  once commenced a  still hunt for a suitable fruit farm on  which to commence the education of  his ward.    After several days, a farm  at Hatzic was picked out and  later  a deal was    consummated whereby/  the firm of Halady & Smith: purchased from  Mr. W.  C.  Bell, a six acre  tract of land at  $1,000 an.acre.  Of  this  amount the    purchasers   .paid  $2,000   down,  the  vendor  taking' a  first  mortgage for    the    remaining  $4,000.    Ihis'  was   executed    about  Christmas of- last year, iu the spring  operations  commenced .and    for    a  while everything went fine, and both  parties semed  well    satisfied - with  their bargain.  But as time went ou there was a  diefded change. Do what he might,  young Smith could not seem to be  able to satisfy.his guardian and he  was continually in trouble. ��������� While  Halladay's brother-in-law had a  room to himself, young Smith had  to sIcgp on the flopr in a room  where Mrs. .Halladay deposited the  dirty linen. To- this, treatment Smith  protested, but to no avail. He worked hard from morning until night,  but outside of his board he received  nothing, not even any new clothes,  which Halladay had agreed to provide.  ago. when  Hal;'..<i;:;- oi-dered Smith'to  go   to   the   prairies 'for  the   harvest.  Smith  refused   to go  lor the  reason  that   his   interests   were   tied   up   at  "atzic.     HIa   refusal   infuriated   Mr.  'lalladay  to such an  extent that he  (old  his ward to get? away from him  and  get.a. job  and  he did  not, care -  The   boy'  walked   away   an,d_  when he returned at night,, the door  was locked against his"' entrance and  lie was forced tofseek shelter, with,a  neighbor.   The   next   day   the .neighbor started an inquiry into the -whole  matter and wha,t he found  out was*  beyond mere belief.   .  The   F"iim  In   J)cbt  Enquiry   brought forth the  information;  that   instead ,of   having .a  balance   on   hand  at   the   bank,   the  firm ol Smith and Halladay were In  debt to the bank to the extent.of a-  bout  $250.00,  being made up'by an  overdraft of $120.00 and notes    for  $150.00/which Halladay had borrowed.    -When   asked "what he  knew'of  this,   Smith   stated  that  he  was  unaware of it.    The investigator could"  not   figure   how   a   transfer   of  this  kind could have taken place without  Smith's knowledge when both Halladay & Smith had to sign all cheque^   '  as  the "agrement  made  in   England  called   for, :-,the  bank .account ..being-  carried in  the joint names.      When  questioned as to cheques, Smith stated  that Halladay    had    nei'3uaded  him to. sign blank cheques" on many  occasions and.some time ago came to  him "with a paper to sign, which he  understood to be a draft for money  which, was to be .used to nay a, Chinese berry picker. But instead of this  the paper turned out to be a document giving Halladay power to draw  from  the firm account without    the  signature .of young Smith.  ;    When the investigator   found    out  how   things   stood)   he   immediately  took steps to tie up the account and  all moneys owed to the firm for berries, as he wanted to be sure of re-  ceiving  the  payment of  $1,3 33   due  him with interest on October 1st as  a second payment on  the  farm.  He  then communicated with Smith sen-.  ior,  who in   turn   through   his  a'ttor-,  neys, entered suit against    Halladay  to recover the $5,000 invested.  WE10K IN CALGARY  The weather for the past week has'  )een   showery  and  cool.     The  price  of B.   C.  field  tomatoes  came  down  very quickly; they are now whole-,  tiling at $2.00 per four basket crate,;.  some have    been    quoted as low    as-  $1.75.  The apparent bid demand for sour;;  berries' has, fallen flat, even though/  | here has, not been a large quantity,/  >n the market, some were cleaned up!/  as low as $1.00 per case, but in most!  ases. the quality had a great deal to..  do with  the low quotation.

Also a car of  apples from Walla Walla arrived on  Monday, there were mostly Bctig-  hoimers and Wolf Rivers. This is  the ouly car of imported apples that  we have heard of being sold in Alberta.  More Money Comes  Lftler In the Spring, Smith seuior  sent $150.00 to his son for his own  personal use. Of this amount, he had  the  use of a part, hut claims  that  the  Halladays got the rest.      Then  later aa the berry season was about  on,   he   wrote   his   father   for   $500  with which to build a packing sited.  This amount wao sent from England  and  a small shed erected, although j  the elder Smith objected to sending  it  as  he  thought  that the original  sum invested should have boen sufficient to cover its expenditure. Then  the harvest of the fruit commenced  and things went fairly well for a time  Smith junior putting up with sleeping on the floor because he had to.  Crate after  crate  of fruit was forwarded to the warehouse at Hatzic  and young Smith had dreams of there  being a nice tidy profit at the end  of  the season  of; which  he. was  to  receive-10 per cent according to the  terms of the agreement. With this in  view, he went about his work uncomplainingly/.and put up .with all the a-  buse 'that Halladay, heaped upon .him,..  But the patience of. all men is limited.
