The minister would not- commit  himself regarding the suggestion to  create a land clearing branch of his  department, although he was ready  to admit that the plan possessed de-  irable features. He pointed out that  the Land Settlement Board had clone  clearing on an extensive scale. He  said he did not approve of purchase  of expensive machinery for land  clearing purposes, and that he favored horse power and the block and  tackle system.

PNOPfl  <���������  .- .������uuw ������mij.n������������i������i  The following taken from the Vancouver World  will be interesting to our readers who remember  the last provincial election, it would have been an  awful, political crime for any Conservative to have  even hinted, during election time, that any kind of  a promise had been made Lo Mr. Martyn, but such  must have been a fact. Time has proven it. The  World says:  "Some iime ago the provincial government ' appointed an industrial commissioner. He was entrusted with a large fund from which to make  such enterprises as, upon investigation, proved deserv  ing.  the  "The officer in question resigned to become  government candidate in Dewdney at the recent elections. He was defeated. Yesterday the government  re-appointed him industrial commissioner.  "The fair inference is that Major Martyn was assured, before he resigned, that, if defeated, he would be  re-appointed to the public service.  Prior to his resignation the commisisoner made a  loan of approximately a quarter of a million dollars  lo a cordage company in New Westminster, for whom  a site had been obtained by purchasing properly from  the premier. Two nights before election he announced that the industrial board, of wflich he had been  commissioner, had loaned $200,000 to a company to  carry on business in the Dewdney Riding. These  two incidents are cited to show the gross improprieties  which are sure to attend such a practice as the one to  which attention is now called.  "The whole transaction is politically immoral. It is  degrading 'to the civil service, which Ihe government  parly was elected, in the first instance tov purge of  patronage. It is an affront in no way qualified by the  persona) merit of the official mentioned. The way in  which the premier used the civil service lo square himself with his old rival in Dewdney is generally known.  That sort of thing, tin fortunately, is not so uncommon  in politics as to awaken much comment. Rut the a-  btise of the public service in the present instance is  flagrant and intolerable. U the industrial commis-  ioner is to be a political pawn for the government at  elections, the bona fides of his loaning operations between elections willcome under suspicion and sharp  scrutiny." .

Those records were based upon a deU'rnun-  alion of the approximate numbers of  bacteria present in the milk as  b'-nnght to the city.

The  milking machine tubes were  ably clean, and were kept  utlon   of brine and  reason-  in  a  sol-  ���������,,   ,.,,   ��������� , ......   chloride  of  lime  which was in sal isfaclory condiHon,  though various details in the care  given the lubes could have been improved.        Improved    methods   were  introduce! >\ ith the r.:;ult that, so  long as the euro of the machines remained under observation, all cans  of milk suit to Geneva were found to  have a low' germ content. During  the seven months that, have elapsed  since the visit was made, the qyality  of the milk from this farm, though  vaiiabie, has been betcr than it was  previous to' the visit. Observations  lead the author to believe that the  fluctuations in quality wero due to a  failure^ io attend to all of the essential details of the cleaning process.  Trouble had .been experienced at  Farm 13., in producing a high grade  milk, and an eight-day visit was  made to study conditions. Investigation showed that there were 'many,  possible sources of trouble .at "this  place, bogmning with poor cleaning  of the tear-.cups'and lubes, pails and  other ul'msiia In addition, the sterilizing solution used for the rubber  tubes was weak both in salt .i-'id  chloride of Hint, while the milk was  not cooled sa'.nd'uctorily before shipping.

The meeting at the  opera house was rather noisy and in-  lei'i'uplions were frequent'.  i\lr. Guthrie, speaking said the gov-  enimeiiL was of tho opinion (hat this  is no time for an election: "Why up-  tffit Hie country from one end to the  i.Cher?"  asked   the  speaker.  The speaker said' he had heard  Sir Wilfrid Laurier say that he would  not rest, until every vestige of protection had been removed from the  tariff. When Sir Wilfrid came into  the premiership, his government  made no attack on the'tariff and loft  it untouched. Why howl at the present government "when the present a-  veragc protection amounts to 23 per  cent?  Premier Meighen was greeted by  three  rousing  cheers as  he  entered  the hall on his arrival from the over   How meeting. He described the west when he gets past the next election,  riding of Peterboro as a represema- j and if, by any chance, through run-  ���������tive constituency. For that reason ning on protection-in one part of the  the eves of the Dominion would focus 'country and on the platform ot tne  on the constituency for the next four'Farmer group in another he is elect-  weeks.

"That stands unchal-  bmged." said the premier. "We are  challenged on the Uiriffissuc after the  greatest struggle any government  ever had," coul Muied Mr. Meighen.  "On (hat it is demanded thai, wo go,  to ihe country for a verdict."  Tho premier said he' knew something about the .Fanners' movement  and what they would do if they got  into power..The electors of this district should vote for the government.  "This is the only way to ensure  success. ^ MacKenzie King was put  in power, who would be his allies?  Ask- him when he comes to this city  if he believes in the protective principle, and why he does. Wire me the  answer at my expense," said the premier.

Though war.was' the  issue of that time, no commitment  was made by the leader of that government restricting the constitutional-'lite time of the government.  , "l have been all over Canada during the past few months and have  heard nothing of a demand for a general election," said the speaker.  "What I find is that the people of  this country need an opportunity to  get along quietly and re-establish  their .business on - a normal basis. I  don't believe Mackenzie King himself  desires an election. What the ex-  member .of this ' constituency wants  an election for I will not attempt to  define.

"Last,  vear we bought    from    the    United  States $927,000,000, which was more  than-we  bought  from     the     entire,  world in any previous year.    We sold  only $045,000,000 to    that    country  for* the same year.    That is a great  pivotal fact.    Get your minds on that  and decide whether there is any good  reason to break down the tariff.    -  ���������  "There was never    a  .time," . the-  proniier continued, "when the neces--  sity for maintenance of a moderate  protection in Canada, was as appar-.  ent as it is today.    Our tariff today-  averages 22 1-2 per cent on dutiable  goods and 14 per cent, on goods free  of duty  during the  16 years  of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier's regime.    The average duty was a little more  than  28  per cent.    The   government    of    Sir  Wilfrid Laurier required    a revenue  of $4 00,000,000, due in a large measure to  the  demands  of  war.       Our.  income  tax  today  was heavier  than  any country in the    civilized    world  and was directed at    the    men ,. of  wealth.

Tho November meeting at the request of a largely-signed petition  agreed to establish a road on the international boundary from the old  Whatcom road  to   Huntingdon.  Tills road running through, tho  barnyard of the Vanderhoof property  is likely to load to a claim for damages, and at the court of revision the  councillors present invited an unofficial'arbitration, in order to get some  idea of their liabilities before committing themselves to a legal decision  from which there would be no apepal.  Councillor Atkinson questioned  this preceding, as he was at the lastl  regular meeting, and knew nothing  of it. Councillor Lamson defended  os it was a precautionary measure,  and  might save much money.  The unofficial "finding," however  was quite harmless, as it suggested  tho removal of tho farm buildings  back from the road, at the expense  of tho municipality.  A more serious obstruction, in the  ciyos.of the interested owners, was a  proposed resolution that the advisability of building this road be laid  before the ratepayers at the election.  Mr. Parberry and Mr. John Fraser  indignantly contested such a procedure as a shuffling of responsibility  and a delay of the measure. The ratepayers on the petition were authority  enough, council had given its promise, the by-law was authorized.  Ratepayers, reeve and councillors  were all speaking at once, the council table was hammered and thumped.  It was useless for the council to  mention a petition for an alternative  route, as, although known to be -in  existence, it was not before the meeting. No matter what it cost them,  people had asked for it and would  stand  behind  it.    if the obstructing I  THE   NOON  HOUR  "Let me have sleeping accommodations on the train to Ottawa," I  said to the man at the window, who'  didn't seem at all concerned weth-  ev I took the trip or stayed at home  "For a single passenger?" he finally said.  '���������No," I replied, "I'm married but  I m not taking anybody with me. A  single   shelf   will   answer."  "Upper or lower?" he asked.  "What is the difference?" I inquired.  "A difference of fifty'cents," came  ..he answer.  "Our prices to Ottawa are $2.5 0  and   $3.00."  "You understand of course," exclaimed the agent, "the lower is  higher than the upper. The higher  price is for the lower berth. If you  want it lower you'll have to go higher. We sell the upper lower than  the lower. It didn't used to be so,  but we found everybody wanted the  lower. In other words the higher  the  fewer."  "Why do they prefer the lower?"  I broke in.  "On  account  of  its  convenience,"  he   replied.     "Most    persons     don't  j like the upper,  although  it's  lower,  | on  account  of  it   being higher,   and  i because when you  occupy  an  upper  1 you   have  to   get  up   to  go  to   bed,  and   then   get   down   when   you   get  up. I would advise you to  take the  lower although if is higher than the  upper, for the reason I have stated,  that the upper is lower than the lower   because   it   is   higher.    You   can  have  the  lower  if  you pay  higher;  but if you are  willing to  go -higher  it will be lower."  Insurance of all kinds''  NOTARY PUBLIC  t 4.  Marriage.
