R 'is  explained   that a  big  percentage of  the food consumed by the -animals la  used up in    producing    heat, and in  keeping the   boast  in   good  physical  condition. A warm dairy barn eaves  food; because less of what the animal  eats is required  for body  heat, and  the result is a greater production of  cream and milk. To keep dairy cattle  in  damp,  draughty     barns    is    not  sound business, as the cows lose their  vitality, and are 'not,    consequently,  economic   producers   .Proper   ventilation,  sunlight and absolute  ' cleanliness' are all considered, not as the  right way to treat the animals, but  as   money-makers,   and   every   detail  in connection with the" barn  is considered as carefully as the machinery  in a factory. Oh this side of the line  the farmers have been able to go one  better, and the barns are fitted with  wrater     supply,    electric     light, and  electric milking machines. Milk and  egg  production  have ..now {been  reduced  to a science,  and the day. of  the amateur farmer is passed, as- lie"  cannot possibly hope to -compete un-..  less he has a-thorough; knowledge of  his business:        '���������"���������' ������������������"������������������'" ���������'���������.'*-���������  Hotelmen Jubilant  Over New Act  ACID A FAIL.URE FOR  GETTING RID OF STUMPS  ���������^HUNTINGDON, Feb.  24.���������Powder  -is tlie only means of getting rid of  stumps. Dr.. H.-   K.    Benson, of the  . chemistry department of the .University .of  Washington;   who  has  made  an extensive study of the'stump prop  osition, says that the idea of pouring  sulphuric or    nitric    acid into auger  holes "is useless, as the    stump    will  only rot in tlie vicinity of the acid.  With     numerous    applications,    the.  stump will rot in five or   six    years' j  time, but the'roots will still remain.1  A South African, an Australian,  and a South American, recently discussing the subject while travelling  along the B. C. E. R.' track, were  agreed that the termite or whito  ant, would clear the country within  five years, and not leave a root, but  unfortunately they would: also attack .the timber in the mills, and  every wooden building, unless lhe  entomologist could suggest any  method of keeping them on their  rightful   line  of business.  VICTORIA," Feb. 22.���������Eleventh-  hour changes in the draft moderation  bill which it was finally decided today; should be tabled in the Legislature, will give effect to(demands by  .the hotel representatives, Avho have  been camping on the trail of the government for the past week or two,  and who, it was intimated this evening,  have  scored their point.  Ever since the information was  published recently that the now-famous "beer, clause" would be deleted from the bill, and that contentious  point thrust up to the house members, the hotel men'have been protesting   volubly.  'Up to yesterday it was the conviction of members on the 'government  side that the hotel men had . been  stood off, but at the eleventh hour  comes the intimation that the "wets"  have scored their point, that the bill  will contain provision for the sale  of beer in hotel dining-rooms, restaurants, hotel bars, cabarets and.  clubs, the beer, however, to be sold  only in sealed packages,"thus.observing the principle upon .wtiich... the]  people.apprbved.at-the-plebiscite.'-. .  This beer must be secured fro-m  the government stores "and."will only,  be sold ; to patrons possessed of-the  required permit,, the bartender being  required, to demand production of-the  permit before the package is handed  over.:. Once in possession \_. of ^the  .package .theUpatroVwill'-be' permitted  to open it and drink oh the premises. '  It is'intimated, too, that "=the bar  feature will be-eliminated, and such  establishments will have to provide  tables for their patrons.^  Under the new proposal the proprietors would be agents for the  government in selling the beer in  sealed packages, but in that case,  presumably they would bo forced to  sell at a higher figure than would  the government store, otherwise  there would be no profit in it for  them.  SIX  DREDGES   FOR  ..

The Behans are four days behind  Charles Burkman, and about the  same time ahead of the Dills, husband and wife, also hyking from.!  coast   to   coast.  VICTORIA, Feb. 23.���������Tho question of allowing Chinese and other  Orientals to lease land in the province will come up for discussion before the agricultural committee now  sitting .at the House. This is a matter which has been brought to the  front during the past few years and  ���������was a topic at the recent^farnier conventions in ' this ��������� city, when resolutions protesting against allowing  these Orientals to lease lands for  agricultural purposes were passed.  According to some of the members  of the House the situation has become an acute one in various por:  tions. of the .province. In Victoria it  is-stated that Chinese cooks refuse  to handle any potatoes grown other  than by Orientals. They go about it  in a novel way. The. cooks spoil the  first few attempts with potatoes purchased from white dealers, and when  the lady of the house asks the reason  she is informed that "potatoes no  good; I get potatoes thai, are good."  The first potatoes arc of the fame  quality as those grown and sold by  Chinese, but the union prevails.  :���������"  Excellent ^progress  is  being ma'de>tables of whist were played.

A rumor was circulated in the  Sumas district to the effect that the  scheme would not be completed  before five years. Mr. Sinclair, however, denied this report. He stated  that as far as can be estimated at  this time, there is no reason to believe that the big project will not be  finished within the time stated by  Miniser of Agriculture  namely  by June  1922.  With the diverting of  dar River, the main dyke  and the big suction dredge at work,  the undertaking will proceed rapidly  As more dredges are added, more  men will be employed, and by summer the hundred or so men now  working will be greatly augmented.  The- Parent-Teachers' Association  will hold, a social evening in, the G.  W. V. ��������� A. rooms .on.

Mr. Hill, manager of the Royal  Bank, is now convalescent and expects to be back at work in the  course of a couple of weeks.  At  the   well-attended   meeting  of  the hospital committee; it was decided to arrange with.Mr. D...C. Dur-  rant to    secure a    charter * for    the  hospital. The secretary, was' instructed  to write the    presidents    of    the  Women's Institutes in    the   surrounding districts,  to organize each district in the interests of the proposed  hospial, the members to    offer    any  necessary  aid.   Five   additional   subscriptions  of  $100     each     wore   reported and several new names added  to the committee.  Barrow,  the   Vod-  complcted  lap155*.

Published Every Friday  J. A. Bates, Editor and Proprietor  Member of the Canadian Weekly    Newspapers'  Association.  FRIDAY,    FEHIll/AHY  y->,  1<>2I  A good idea was placed before the  public at a meeting hold recently in  Rovelsfok'e when, t-lie secretary of tho  Teachers Pod oration made tho suggestion that school boards or city  councils "bo given the power to levy  tuxes in advance of requirements for  new school accommodation"', but like  many another good suggestion it .falls  Hat unless some scheme is also put  willi it so that it can .be carried out.  The question of schoo  an important, one and  would welcome any  would bring relief.  At the present time municipalities  have tho power to collect, tho ^ij-poll  tax;-the new liquor act may bring a  small portion to each'. municipality  from the appearance of present legi:.'-- ;'  lation as indicated at Victoria; and  how would it. be for this money to  be placed as a sinking fund, or as  money for paying interest on borrowed money for the building of schools.  Would it work" out?  education is  the tax payer  scheme    -that  the school-age to '10 years. This  would mean that, to an appreciable  degree, the flow of child run now  leaving our schools with a mere smat  faring of education, would be checked. It would mean that those who  engage in vocational training would  havo more time to select their careers  that arc not overcrowded. It would  nu.-aii that, there would be greater  'children being educated to become  assets of the future welfare of this  1-rovinoe, instead of, as now, so  large a percentage of them being  compelled to leave this pan of the  Dominion   to find  vocations  in  life.  "Another reform called for is the  raising of the standard of the teachers.

At J. "A; CATHERWOOD'S  ; Eyeryi' Friday  Phones:' Mission   1503  .ong Distance:    Pt. Coqultlam  ���������   At a meeting held by a valuator of  the  Soldier Settlement Board   in   an  up-country tow*n the suggestion   was  made  that   there  was     not     enough  cleared land in the settlement, it was'  a great handicap, to-t he progress of  the district; the valuator also suggest  ed that more land should be cleared  as  it would   bring excellent returns..  ��������� "Some years ago when the question of.  placing the soldiers upon    -the    land .sential  a suggestion was made by some pro- .graphy  "mincnt speakers'in "the'Fraser Valley  to f-.he effect that if the-government  -. would   undertake   to   clear   a   man's  ���������twenty  or  more   acres'and   make   it  fit  for cultivation,  that    that    man  would   willing   give- the   government  a portion of his land  tree to sell to  new settlers.  At that time some owners of land  around this district intimated that  they wotild be willing o give a half  of the uncleared land for the clearing of their farm land rot then under,  cultivation.  It is a truism that there is not  at the present time enough land under culitvafion in any part of our  rich valleys of the province; and  more cleared land would mean more  settler's.  The C. P. It. scheme in parts' of  tho mountain district, appears to bo  a .paying proposition for that company.  the right idea, judging from the following:   "Farmers'  wives-    can    res!  their's",     and    also  of    their    realization of the  general deficiencies which prevail ii.  our educational system.

" .   ������������������  moment we    have    no    doubt as to  what  would  be the    outcome.     Th&  people would then be roused to the  realities of the situation, and would  make as short work of the anti-Protectionist' movement, as they made 01  the  reciprocity movement  ton'' years  ago.  Our neighbors  are decieved  b\  the pretended impatience of   the Opposition leaders, for a contest at thu  polls.

That is ' why   American   manu-  .ucturcrs are looking so hopefully to  the 'fuss   that   Mr.   Crerar  and     Mr.  King are,making to keep themselves  in the .public notice.

If  foreign  buyers  of our newsprint, and if foreign-own-  id mills in    Canada,    never    have a  ;reater"grievance than this, they will  aave little to worry about.  PC) LI CI l-:S   CONTRASTED  "That portion of Mr  wood's speech  in  the  address   which   dealt   with  J. A. Cather-  debate on the  education  was very much   to    lhe    point.     We  could go further than he did and say  that the whole educational system of  the  Province is sadly in need  of reform.     Mr.   Cafherwood's   contenlion  that the high schools an; turning out  youths for professions, already overcrowded   needs   no  gainsaying.   If   it  '   were possible to keen an inventory of  the   students   in   their   after  careers.  It would be found that at least 2*". per  ��������� cent., and    possibly    more,    have to  leave British    Columbia ��������� when their  education is    completed to    find employment in other parts of Canada, or  in the United States.    There are    all  too many other cases where students  trained���������if only in a preliminary way  ���������for  vocations   while     at    a     high  Bciiool, find that when atlompting to.  enter a business career lliey are faced .  with   unemployment. The outcome is  that they have to seek whatever other ,  occupation offers, and, to a large ex- j  tent, they come to realize that much  of the  training''they-have    received  during their high school days proves  of no avail. j  "British Columbia, in its education '  al system, in pursuing a course which ,  does not take    sufficiently    into.con-���������  sideration   the   economic     conditions  that prevail. Too little stres;;'. is being j  laid on lhe essentials, the knowledge  of which goes to- make up a general  education.   There   is   a   tendency   to  induce children, at too early an' age,  ���������to choose their    career:;    in    life, irrespective altogether of v, iiether they  have a  natural    bent    for the  vocational studies they are called upon to  undertake. One needed reform, which  would go far towards remedying this  condition,   would   be  the   raising  ot  "Mr. Meighen' stands for moderate  protection, and the chiefs of the two  Opposition  groups stand   for  moderate free trade." This is the way that  the   Toronto   Mail  and   Empire   concisely sums up    the    difference    between the    three    leading    political  parties in Canada. Mr. King and Mr.  Crerar promise    that,    if    entrusted  with power, they would at first go no  farther than  to  wipe cut protection.  That is sufficiently alarming to our  wage-earners. It    is also    most gratifying to    the    manufacturers in the  United   States.   These   keen   business  men   note   with   satisfaction   the   incessant chatter of Mr. King and The  Globe for    the    hurrying' in    of    a  general election. For American manu  facturers   in   whose   warehouses   are  K.orod   'millions    of    dollars'   worth  :   1  unsold stocks,    the    demolition of  Canada's   protective     tariff     cannot  come ;co soon. Victory at the    polls  either for Mr. Crerar   or    Mr.    King  would cause joy in    Industrial    and  commercial   circles     throughout   the  ;' lig'nly protected country to tiie south  'of us. Which of    these    two    leaders  wins, both  being steadfast adherents  of the Reciprocity pact of 1911, is of  j iftle consequence to our    enterprising neighbors, so long as the "Protectionist    Government    of Canada    is  beaten. As  the    opener    up of Canada's  home  market to  an  inpouring  of  merchandise  from  the  congested  j  tocks''in American hands, it matters  not   whether   the   benefactor   of   the  American .people is Mr. Crerar or Mr.  King.      The    delivery of    Canada's  ihome market into UncleSam's grasping hands would be a boon to American   workers   now   facing  unemployment and   would  be tragedy, for our  c wn workers.

He    brought    with    him a  whole   bokful   of'diplomas  ynd   cer-  ��������� tificatcs-besides two very rare'   pos-  '��������� sessions, the Cross of Merit of Moil-,  tenegro and tho Silver    Medal of the  ' S. P. C. A. fron'i  Havre, Prance.  But here, 'on,the other"side of the  water, Destiny showed her mysterious .hand in Mr. Leon "'Clievalley's'  career and at one blow deprived him  ,-��������� of all his worldly wealth. With a-  wife and four small children to provide for, there was,no time to be lost  The professor was obliged to turn  his hand to the first job that offered-  at a time when'work was scarce and  poorly paid. He dug potatoes for 3T>u  a day, and another day his little son  taking him his lunch turned away'  with tears in his eyes at the sight of  his father cleaning out pans in a condensed  milk  factory���������his father, the  1 professor,, who had himself been  superintendent of such a factory for  ..   twelve years in the Old Country.  But Mr. Chcvalley's grit and optimism, were not based on such  evanescent foundations as money and  luck.  He forced   his way  through  to  ��������� success and (en years ago he came  up over the border to help    start the  , U. C. Condensed Milk Factory in New  Westminster. This was only a tem-  poiary site,  however, and very soon  . he moved the factory up into the  heart, of the best farming district in  .-   B. C, choosing a    central    spot    for  .' farmers, near railway and water, and  settled at South Sumas.  Always reaching out for new  ideas, Mr. Chevalley sold out his in-.  :,ercst in (he milk factory to the  Borden Milk Co., and began to look  around , the Chilliwack Valley lor  something thai nobody else had yet  exploited, or had grown with'no  commercial success, and in Uartlefl.  pears he found what he was looking  for.- lie saw that where' apples may  be successful only in a good year,  these pears grow, to complete perfection in this particular locality.  hi iiii9 he bought 110 acres at  South Sumas, more than half of it  a.wilderness of huge fir and cedar  stumps. That spring he started clearing on a lurge scale and with donkey-engine and powder galore transformed the wilderness in six short  weeks info a profitable potato patch  ali ready for the fall planting of the  young pear trees.  .  Here today is the first ���������commercial  pear orchard of Western-B. C, thirty-five acres with 2000 Bartlett and  S00 Bosc trees. As Boscs are one of  the strongest pollinizing varieties of  pears, he had eveiy four rows  of Bartletts inter-planted with two  rows of Boscs so as to make.pollin-  ization more certain. And' as tho  Hose pear free,' in (he ' Slates has a  name'for being peculiarly liable to  pear blight, all the lore of rooting  and buckling' known to science was  called into use to ensure Mr. Cher  valley's trees from blight. The  blight-resisting root of the wild  'Japanese pear was taken, grafted a  few inches above tho ground with  the "Surprise" variety of pear onto  which was again grafted the Bosc  Ipear.  The trees were planted 20 feet by  '27'feet apart in order to get a return from the land before the trees  come into bearing, 3000    gooseberry  .bushes and 2G00 currants were planted in the    twenty    foot    space    and  j loganberries   and   blackberries   were  planted  in   the     twenty-seven     foot  i.  space. Furthermore, in order l.o havo  a. crop off flic land in the first year  of tho plantation, two rows of potatoes were planted between the t rcen  and the berries,  j     Tins first year the care    taken i'n  'the selection of the seed gave such  ircnulls that his seed drew (tie at(cnT  j (ion of the Dominion and Provincial  authorities and  tho lion.  10.  IJ.   Ijar-  , row, Minister of Agriculture stated  that Mr. Chevalley had raised the  best potato seed in B. C. lie special-1,  ized in Netted Gem and Golden Coin  and some of his Netted Gem sold, in'  Seattle by a buyer brought -$ lo a ton  over the Yakima potatoes.-All this  goes-to show that Mr. Chcvalley's  secret for successful growing is to  start in with the best strain that caii  he procured. '��������� He is experimenting  with now varifics of raspberries imported form New York an,. Quebec  and this spring hopes to put another  ten acres into raspberries. The two-  year old plantation will yield 60 per  cent, of a full grown crop and the  weather conditions having been the  best for plant growth, the progress  made by trees and plants is quite  remarkable.  According to, nursery men (his  piece of land is specially adapted for  the growing of small fruits and pear  trees, and the, highest yield possible  will be obtained. The soil is a sandy  loam, a river deposit, of- drainage sc  perfect that it can be worked directly after the heaviest rain.  Besides the aforesaid, Mr. Chevalley has put about fourteen acres into  strawberries, mostly Magoons, .the  variety best suited to this valley, and  these are due to bear this year. He  lays great stress on the vast importance of bees in an orchard; so  necessary does he ' consider them to  the fertilization and also to the better-perfection .'of the fruit that he  has  installed    in    his    orchard,   an  POULTRY     RAISING    AS  A    VOCATION  rsr  1H  Althouglwthe value of poultry and  poultry products In tho three  prairie provinces of Canada amounted to more than twelve and a half  million dollars in 1919, it cannot be  said that the poultry industry in  these provinces is anything more  than a side lino with the majority  of farmers. The high prices paid  for eggs during the last tew years,  however, has caused farmers to  turn their attention to the possibilities of poultry raising as a  means   of   increasing   their   incornr.  This is shown by the interst which  is being takcu in the teachings of  the agricultural colleges and the  Dominion and Provincial Government experimental farms throughout the country.. Farmers are looking for advice regarding poultry,  and are endeavoring to put into  practice the valuable information  made available by the agricultural  colleges  and   experimental, farms.  The work that is being done at the  Dominion Experimental Farm at  Lethbridge, All erta. is characteristic  of what similar institutions throughout the country arc doing, and indicated the enormous profit pos-  pibilitics poultry raising in the  prairie provinces offers, if the profession is taken seriously. At this  farm a return of no less than $00  weekly- in being received from a  flock of 220 hens which rcqir'ro buf  part of the time of one man to look  after them.  The value of tho poultry at the  Lethbrid'-e E>-p"vimental Farm is  measured by the number of eggs a  }-cn lays. Many-of the best bird?  rt the farm would not stand: vcry  h'ffh in the estimation r,f a judge n'.  ���������pi a pen Dry shmv. But they pre  o~j; producers.-.and o.f,c,s men rov  v revenue to the farmer; and it, in tV  object of the experimental Farm tr.  teach the" farm r methods that .will  produce more .i-vf-nno  The flock ��������� v'l'e'i produces rne>  e?.tlnfactory rc."ult:j has been sat together by Intelligent selection o*  proved laying  strains,      Tho birds  are barre'1. Plymouth rocks. In 1918  Mr. C. A. Crossfleld, who is in charge  of the poultry seotion at the experimental station at Lethbridge, trap-  nested about 150 hens. .Of these 94  hens which had laid more than 150  eggs during 1918. included 37 which  produced 200 . and more, were  selected. These were mated with  cockerels of a good egg producing  strain, and out of the hatchings of  last spring 220 pullets were taken.  These 220 birds - were divided into  docks of fifty-five'each and penned  together in the- fall.  ' One lot was placed in the pen last  October, a month earlier than the  rest. These fifty-five hens netted a  profit of $1.12 each during the month  ���������.of December. They laid 1,083 eggs-  more than ninety dozen���������which were  sold wholesale at 90c a dozen.  Every hen laid during the month.  One pullet laid thirty eggs in the  thirty-one days. ��������� Many others laid  twenty-five and twenty-six each in  the' same period. The average number of eggs laid by the pullets in  this pen during the month was  somewhat less than twenty eggs  each.  The pens for the other birds were  not. ready until the middle of November, and the results in December  were not quite so good in these pens  as in. the one just mentioned. They  were, however, vory satisfactory.  All but seventeen hens laid. One  hen laid thirty eggs, yielding a gross  return of $2.20 for, the month. This  is a good deal more than the cost of  its.keep, which some farmers are  v.-ell satis-fled to get from their hens  luring tho'winter .months,, These  ���������-������ens were doing; much better later  and In January fourteen dozen eggs  were being taken from the four  pens, daily. This works out at about  one hundred dozen eggs a week, and  at present prices means a return of  COO a week from 220 hens.  Mr.  Crossfleld  claims there Is no  frer.t. fiecret  In getting such results  v?n  theme  from  poultry  in  Southern  Alberta.    Tho  dry atmosphere, the  sunshiny days, and the absence ofj  rain during the hatching season  contribute greatly to the successful  'raising of strong and healthy chicks.  The housin? of the birds is very  simple and can be duplicated at little expense by any farmer, or by.  anyone else as a matter of fact, who,  might want to take up chicken rais-i;  ing as a profession. The floor ot  in the pen is the ground and the roosts;  are about three feet away from the'  ground. The roosting space has a'  covering' of canvas which is placed  over the openings at night to prevent draughts. The heat from the  hens is thus confined to a small  space and no artificial heat is pro-.-  vided. Good clean straw covers the'  floor. I  During the cold weather the hens'  are given, a mixture of two parts' of  corn and six parts wheat in addition to their other feed which con-,  sists of oats, bran, shorts, and corn-  meal in equal parts, as well as  green alfalfa leaves, grit, oyster  shell and charcoal. In warmer  weather the. corn and wheat ration  is reduced. Clean water is always  available. Tho food is given in  hoppers which are arranged a few  inches from  the ground.  It would be interesting to see what  results could be obtained in Western  Canada from specializing in poultry  raising on a farm where the greater  part, if not the whole of the crops,,  would be grown for feeding the  poultry. On account of the great  variety of crops that can be grown  on an irrigated farm it would seem  that these farms offer special advantages to anyone wanting to  make poultry his profession, but-  satisfactory results could undoubtedly be obtained from almost anywhere  in the prairie provinces. The possibilities of the industry are being  realized, however, and during the  last six months reports havo been  received of more than a dozen,  different people who have started,  or who have planned to begin  poultry raising on a commercial  scale, -, ' ~ *������������������''  apiai������y, now forty-two colonies strong  which is in charge of an expert" who  takes the honey in return���������Mr. Chevalley wants only the work of the bees  Government-authorities say that tho  bees will increase the yield of the  small fruit Uirpor cent.,'.and of the  pears 2 0 per cent.  ' Much'faith has this grower in the  future importance of. the loganberry  both, as a fruit and as a wine���������which  he says will in time, equal the finest  grape juice that ever came out of  Bordeaux���������that' although he already  has some fifteen acres in logans  (about ('0,000 tips') he intends to increase this number still further.-He  has discovered that'the usual method  of planting logan tips, i; e., placing  the tips horizontally in the ground  and covering them lightly, leaves too  much to the mercy of heavy.frosts so  he plants his vertically in the ground  (o a depth of 5 or ti inches and. finds  this by far the best method. He holds  that the best, time for planting them  is tl\e last week in August or the first  week in September.  It. is Mr. Chcvalley's intention to  dispose of the bulk'of his fruit on  the prairies where the prices are  best and the markets most certain.  He is one of-the directors of the  Fruit Growers' Association in Chilliwack, being very strongly in favor  of co-operation whenever and wher-  :ver possible, believing,that if properly worked it wrould increase the  -.irosperity of the country and individual   a   hundred-fold.'  Mr. Chevalley is one of those immigrants whose knowledge, wide experience and progressive policy are  so invaluable to the development of  the Province, and we heartily wish  him all the success for which he has  so .honestly striven.���������Farm and  Home.

Moving  from" here to California, the, two  men started the manufacture. - of  fruit drying and canning machinery  -in a small way, finding such a ready  demand for their products that success was early assured.. Their last  years business' reached a total-of  $350,000 and returned a profit of  $70,000, the factory employing .160  men.

The existing law whereby registration of  conveyances is prohibited unless  municipal taxes in arrears on the  land are first paid provided some  discussion.  Mr. J. A. Catherwood, Conservative member for Dowdney, advocated  an. extension of the principle to include dyking taxes and the street  lighting tax. This raised quite a lot  of discussion and there were about  twelve or fifteen 'members who  spoke on it, all agreeing with Mr.  Catherwood in his statements. Mr.  Fred Anderson, Liberal member for  Kamloops, suggested also including  water licei'se fees, a  sten approved  by Mr.  \V.     A.     McKenzio,    Conservative member for   Simllkameen.  Attorney-general   Farris  expressed  himself averse to any such principle  asserting that the existing provision  had   been   "slipped   over"., two  years  iago  without his    knowledge,    or he  Would then have opposed it. Yet, experience    had    shown    that it    had  proved a good thing for the municipalities, which were thereby enabled  to get in a large amount of tax arrears.   But,   he argued,  the  bill  was  not designed to be a    tax    collection  scheme, and  to extend  the principle  would, in    all    likelihood,    mitigate  against the main principle aimed at-  the prompt and general  registration  of instruments affecting land.  1     Mr. W. .1.
