at Victoria,  says
Hon E. D. Bar-
A request by 'the Dominion gove-
ernment that payment at the rate Oi

acres of Dominion land to be taken
over in connection
has been received
the Vancouver Sun
row, mininstcr 'of agriculture, who is
deeply interested in Lhe Sumas Lake
scheme, both as head of the department and as member for the district
is endeavoring to have. the. Ottawa
authorities stick to its original offer
cf deeding the land free for the bene-
lit of the reclamation scheme.
The.original offer was made many
years ago, when, .early.-efforts were
made to initiate a reclamation
scheme, The plea is now made by
Hon.'Arthur-Meighen that _,within
the-last two or three years a policy
had been adopted at Ottawa in dealing with the ��� prairie provinces' of
charging a nominal rate of $1 an acre
for all Dominion lands deeded to the
provinces for- reclamation or public
purposes. It is represented that the
Dominion cannot very well make an
exception in the case of-British Columbia.
Hon. Mr. Barrow is pleading the
original promise, and also the" fact
that a portion of the lands, probably
a couple of thousand acres, are to be
set aside for returned men.
Some interesting tests have been
made by Hon. Mr. BarfHw of the soil
taken from the bed of the lake, "to
demonstrate the wonderful growing
qualities of the soil. Wheat, oats,
peas, vetches and other varieties of
garden and field crops were planted
in pits containing some of the dredged material, and have shown wonderful results. Prof. Bovingyof the university staff, has made an analysis of
the soil, which proves it similarity
to the famous reclaimed lands of Holland, famous the world over for their

was furnished last Saturday, the in-

several ocaeions in meeting the ball.
The backs were both good, the Kil-

better after lvs moved forward, scoring  Abbotsford's   tally  with   an   un-
saveable shot.l-The  halves played a
reliable  game," there being  little  to
choose  betwween  the  three.  Of  the
forwards,. Joe played  a  little  better
than usual, but seems .to hang beck

II,  may  bo I rue and  Mr.  Oliver   may   bo   right,   but   if   comes  with poor grace from the Premier of  our province at these times when the'  province  can  gain  so  many concessions from  the Dominion government.  The present federal government    no  .matter  what  their other  faults  may  be   are   apparently   very   kindly disposed towards the various provinces,  particularly so   towards   British   Columbia, on account of the fact that so  many soldiers from other parts of the  dominion and empire are settling in  our midst���������have come to British Columbia as a new country to carve out  a home.     Such antagonism  is likely  to  injure  the chances of  these  new  settlers, as not much will come to the  province to their aid when the Premier is so minded. ��������� '  At present the provincial government  is planning the  dyking of the  Pumas lands.    There are some 12000  acres of dominion land  to  be taken  over in the reclamation -scheme'and  this, land was years ago promised to  the province provided the lands were  reclaimed.     Now   comss   word   from  Ottawa that the federal government  fore Bowser lost out when a -straight  party  majority  sustained   the   Premier's contention that in formation asked  for in  the 'Shape of. questions on  the   order  paper   could   be "���������expected  only in the shape of return's made <o  the- House,  an   attitude on   the  part  of the premier which Mr. Bowser stated, simply  meant  that as had  been  Hie case on previous occasions, information sought for by the opposition,  would  be  brought down  on  the last  day of the session when it would be  of   no   use   to   the   members   of   the  House.' .   ,  W.   R. .Ross,  having in  mind  that  attitude asked for a return of reports  made  by   forest rangers  to the Minister of bands, covering a recent serious forest fire at Cheakmus', on the  line of lbs P. G. E. whereby a valuable saw-mill and other private property   was   destroyed.

But he did.not deign to ox  plain why promised bills were not as  yet forthcoming.

He   writes:  ie to  the authorities at  Ottawa  Mr. '  Barrow's chances we feel will be but  slim.  The offset of (his may be that the  reclamation scheme may fall through  and the fanners In that part of the  Fraser Valley will be the sufferers.  This is only one instance,and there  may be others.  Victoria  The present session at  appears to point to the fact that all  is not harmony in the Oliver camp.  Mr. Walters struck the nail on the  head when he pointed out the weak-  part 'of the working system of the  Minister of Public Works; the only  mistake was when the member from  Vale apologized to the Minister of  Public  Works.     It  has     long     been  whispered ���������sometimes  loudly that  Mr. Foreman was the chief,     it looks  -After sixty one must not take too  m?.ny chances  with one's seir';  but I  should   say   that   the   golden   age  of  man h between fifty and sixty, when  one  may safely  take  them.  One hay  peace   then   from   the   different  passions;   if  one   has   been   tolerably   industrious one is tolerably prosperous  on   has   fairly   learne  one's   trade  or  has mastered one's art; age seems as'  far off as one's youth;  one is n^t so  much.afraid   of death as earlier; one  likes   joking   as   much   as   ever  and  loves beauty and truth as much; family cares are well out of the way; if  one" has married timely one no longer nightly walks the floor witn evei.  the youngest child; the marriage ring  is then, a circle half rounder! in eternity.    It is a  blessed time;  it is indeed the golden age after it is more  than" silvern.     The best age'after i  r^^^i^--^^>-^^������~*^r  true in Dewdney will most likely be  (-������������������lie in other constituencies of the  Province. Ft has often been said  that if Oliver knew how some things  were carried out in the line of public  works in Dewdney, he would no:  stand for it.  With   the  traffic  truck   comes  the  necessity of more and  better roads.  ty, but one cannot make so sure of  ninety as of seventy in the procession  of the years, a':ul that is where fh������  'gold turns silver. But silver is one  | of the precious metals, too, and If  need not have any alloy of the baser  ones. I do not say how it will be in  the years between ninety and a hundred;   1 am not yet confronted with  between fifty and sixty.     In that time  parts of (he Fraser Valley between  the city and the country districts and  the settlers appreciate the convenience. One is being run from the  coast to points in the Maple Ridge  district and one is being rim from  Vancouver to Abbotsford, and in both  cases the people swear by them.  With the advent of better roads  more motor trucks will be put in  operation not only for the distribution of freight but for the purpose of  carrying freight to the railways.  This truck service makes a demand  for better roads and better systems  of road making.  riittMiKi: ouvku not in  A  COMMUNICATIVE Sl'IKIT  The opposition ran up against another snag in the legislature last  week in its efforts to get information  from the government.    The week bo  il   on-  has   made oneself  wanted   in  the   world,  one  is  still   wanted;   bur.  between .eighty and ninety, if one is  still- wanted, is. one wanted as much  'as   ever?     it  is  a  painful   question  but  one must not snirk it;  and    m  trying for the answer one must not  do less than one's utmo st, at a time  when one's utmost will cost more effort than before.      This is    adisaiJ,  vantage of living so long, but we cannot change the conditioning    if    we  wish  to live.  There is always the'. question  whether one does wish to live.but for  the average happy or unhappy man, I  should   say yes,   yes,  yes  Mr. Hanes gave many inside details  of the^ now famous P. G.  E   inquiry  during the 1 917t.session. Ho referred  to his repeated efforts to have W. .7.  Bowser announced   before  the  committee to give evidence as to the alleged   disposition  "of    contributions  which D'Arcy Tate had sworn he had  contributed  to  pay  campafgn  funds  But there had apepared a strange re:  lucta.nce,  Mr.   Hanes   stated,   on lhe  part of members of. the" government  to have that step taken. He had been  told by the Attorney-General to "g.������  easy   because    Bowser   '"knows    too  much".    Even the suggestion by the  North  Vancouver member    at    thai  time  to.the .then  Premier  that^'we  have  been trying f<jr a long time to  got Bowser; now is. our chance", apparently did. not move the ministers  Mr. Hanes said.    He also stated that  the attorney-general  had     promised  the action brought against the P. G.  E. interests would be prosecuted an.;,  if Mr.   Hanes desired  it, to' give the  alter a written undertaking to. that,  effect.     Mr. Hanes told the House ho  had thought that such-was  not necessary and, he naively added: "That  is  where I missed my opportunity,  I  only took his word for it."  But  Messrs Hanes    and*   Walters-  were not the only party members to  give indication of the-rising tide oi  insurgency within    the    government  ranks.     M. B. Jackson, Liberal member  for  the  Islands,   came  out  flat-  footed   with   the  assertion   that   the  people are expecting the government  to formulate some definite agricultural   policy as  to  land-clearing, .cheap  stumping-powder    and      settlement,  While that member likened Hon. E.  D.   Barrow to  "Abe Lincoln"  in appearance,  the    comparison     stopped  there.    He declared the Department  of  Agriculture has  been  asleep  and  he damned with faint praises the policy of the Lands and Forest departments stating that something should  long ere this have ba'en done to provide shipping by which B. C.'s timbe\  products could reach     the      world's  markets.  Owing to the confusion m mail  orders of this medicine we are advancing the price from .f 5.20 to $5.50  and paying air charges.

S. Hayne's, Liberal member for North  Vancouver; "whose' advent into the  ranks of the out-spoken critics of the  government he was elected' to sop-  port, has been the chief topic of discussion in Legislative corridors. His  arraignment on Wednesday oi Premier Oliver and his charge that the  latter violated' the provisions of the  settlement agreement reached in  1918 between the government and  the Foley, Welsh & Stewart intersts  promoters of and contractors for the  P. G. E. railway, now the government  owned road, was the political sensat-  tion of the session to date:  From the commencment of the  session there have been many plain  indications that all was-not well w.ith  the Liberal party. ' These pointed  to a decided condition of dissatisfaction within the party ranks, a spirit  sooti : made manifest in the early  speeches by givornment supporters in  the debate on lhe address. The barrage of complimentary references  which Messrs Nelson and Sutherlana  mover and seconder, respectively, of  the Address, threw around and over  the government trenches was not  long in being dissipated as member  after member expressed their disappointment at the inaction of tho government in bringing forward policies  of a real constructive nature, something more original and of more  lasting benefit to the development of  the province- than the single idea of  gouging more money from out or the  pockets of the already over-burdened  taxpayer.  -This spirit of discontent readied  th'8 climax on Tuesday -when Joseph  Walters, Liberal member for Yale,  roundly condemned the administration of the Public Works department  assailing it as a "miserable failure"  and asserting that the Minister if  charge, Hon. J. II. King, long- known  as. the silent minister, could also be  appropriately termed the "weak minister".

Walters' charge came un-'  expectedly, though' other members  ,'nad also shown market, discontent. '  with thai particular department, especially in respect of road-work. He  declared the members and the dist-  trict engineers had no say in respect  of expenditures in their respective  districts;'Foreman was supreme. But  by Friday Walters had been whipped '  into good behavior again. He. made  an.abject apology to the House asserting .with considerable ingenuousness that he marvelled that members.'  could have construed his criticisms  as an attack upon the honor and integrity of the Minister against whom,  aparently, his only complaint, was, as  be put it, that "it is that peculiar  bedside manner that has been so disconcerting to me on several occasions  when I have approached him in a  somewhat ruffled frame of mind."  Mr. Hanes' assault upon the administration centred upon the premier who, he asserted, in his capacity  of Minister of Railways, had violated  the terms of the act by which (.lio  Legislature had rati lied the agreement with tho I'. G. F. interests. Tlr.������.  Premier, he opined, had been wont  lo criticise the late Conservative government for its violation of the statute! y laws, especially in connexion  with this very P. G. F. project. Now,"  apparently, the Premier's ideas had  changed. That .settlement was .the  outcome of proceedings tho government had initiated at its first session  in 1.01.7 to investigate fully tho affairs of the railway under the regime  of the former government. The facts  of that investigation by a s-jlecf corn-  mi flee of the House and the subec-  d ii en I issuance of a writ against the  P. G. F. interests is now history. Tint  It remained for the member for North  Vancouver to add, even at this late  date, a new and decidedly interes:.-  ing chapter.  That action never came to tidal for  in the meantime the government and  the P. G. F. interests got together  and the result was the settlement in  I!' 18. Among the provisions of that  arrangement was one set forth in  section 14 of the Act as follows:  "Tiie parties of the second part covenant that all the rolling stock, c-  quipmoht, plant and machinery, r.ow  in. upon or about'the said lino of railway, or adjacent thereto, and heretofore in use or required or contracted for use by them or any of the said  companies, in or in connection wit!;  the construction or operation of the  said line of railway are the properties of' Lhe said companies and ;ire  to be transferred, set over and delivered to the Province."  . Mr. Hanes charged tha following  the ratification of that arrangement  by the Legislature the government ;vi-  specfors who were s'.-nt out to check  up these assets preparatory to the  Province taking them over, had Irjon  iuterferred with and obstructed in  the execution of their duty of proteri.-  ing valuable assets of the province.  He gave a specific instance of this  in support of his charge, the case of  the saw-mill on the P. G. E. operated  by Walsh, Day Lumber Company,  lesses from the P. G. E. interests, to  whom the Premier had sent instructions to disregard the instructions instructions of the government inspectors Anderson and Morrissey. By thr.t  action Hanes declared, the mill, a  valuable property, had been lost to-  the Province. Assets which had been  valued at $1,000,000.00, he said, bad  been affected by the agreement.

C. is approximately $33,000,000 or  nearly double what it was at the  end of 1916 when the present administration took-office,a little over three  over three years ago. Then the debt  was slightly over $18,000,000. The  present Liberal administration has,  therefore, borrowed about $14,000,-  000*. Next year this large total will'  be swelled by a further loan for $4,-  000,000 to be utilized in completing  construction of the P. G. E. into  Prince Georgeflaud for other purposes.  The financial operations of the government will undoubtedly be a fruitful topic of discussion at the present  session. TI1.9 opposition scoffs at the  claim advanced by Hon. John Hart,  Minister of Finance, to a surplus of  $1,040,000 in current revenue over  current expenditures for the fiscal  year ended March 1919, as shown in  the public accounts just tabled. They  assert the so-called surplus is merely  a book-keeping one; Mr. W. R.

According to the story which Mr.  Paterson told to the insurance company officials, he left the storehouse  one end of which he occupies for his  personal use, at about 8 o'clock. He  went to a dance and in returning at  12:15 o'clock passed the storehouse  and everything was quiet At 1 o'clock  he heard the company fire alarm, and  when he went to the storehouse a-'  gain found it in flames.        .  The company has a small fire-  fighting apparatus at Stave Falls, but  the fire had gained such headway  that there was little use to combat  the flames. The corrugated iron walls  fell and it was impossible to get  water onto the inflammable interior  which burned rapidly. It was whib  the walls fell that Mr. Paterson entered the building and rescued the  contents of the safe.  It is understood that the place is  fully insured, Rand &,Fowler having'  Mr.  Paterson's  personal  property  a- ,  mounting to about $500 covered.
