The work was carried on  up to 1915, when the war situation  caused a shut-down. In 1913 the  lands were included in Port Moody  Townsite, but the survey was nevei-  completed.

BATES, Editor and Proprietor,  -"���������*TV^^Pf*"  znxarazanc:  FRIDAY,   JUNE   29',    1923.  aex  The Ontario election results should  make the people of this province wh<  are -thinking of affiliating with a  third party, do some thinking, before  they act. No government anywhere  ever started out with such a boost as  did the farmer party,of Ontario, i.i  1919. Everything came their way,  and., the prospects- did really look  bright when Premier Drury took the  reins of power.  It is not for us at this distance to  say, exactly what caused the defeat  of the Farmer government, but we  caH all read.- We can gather from  between the lines that the government of the ' country was in the  hands, of the inexperienced men, or  men who had no real idea of how  public affairs could be conducted economically for the people. The liquor question may and may not have  entered the question, if it did Unpeople of Ontario have really changed their mind. It looks as though  the, followers of the - Drury government at the last election had divided  off into Liberal amd Conservative*  again���������and Ontario has been looked  upon  as  Conservative.  The results in Ontario will be a  good criterion to go by when the  next provincial election conies up.  and will probably do more to make  the voter decide which it shall be���������  Liberal or Conservative���������but not any  third party.  in a province like British Columbia  is a costly, performance. H" there is  an overwhelming demand on t-.ia  part of public opinion to make tin?  Provincial 'Government's     monopoly  iirtight,     th j  a'   plebiscite.  to  by  the  peo-  One thing can be said much to  the credit of the Farmer Government of Ontario, and that is they  know when they are beaten at the  polls. ��������� Premier Drury has already  called upon the lieutenant-governor  asking that he be relieved of office  end has recommended his successor.  .Another thing the new premier  has a fairly well defined plan for action, on short notice, for victory must  have come as quite a surprise to him.  Premier Oliver has' a real problem  on his hands, if he wishes to make  the Doukhobors obey the laws of  the province. Since these people  hare been in the province they have  defied all law except their own. It is  time to make them do what, true citizens of the province are willing to  do; or that they should suffer the  consequences. All citizens" will wish  our premier success in carrying out  his plans in this respect; and if he  makes a mistake will deal gently  with him.  of  the  liquor   traffic  expense     incidental   to  will, not  be objected  pie. ���������  '    One of the  gravest    dangers ������ in-  monopoiy in a Government's airtight  monopoly of the liquor    business has  been  drawn  attention  to  by  Senator  Taylor  of  New     Westminster.       He  points out thai   the    legislation     designed to put a period to private importation  would,  if adopted,  "cre;ue  a number of   mushroom     distilleries  in  British  Columbia and provide au  immense    corruption    fund."       It i\>  idle to deny the    possibility of th'?,  no matter      what      protestations of  pure-hearted   innocence   our   legislators might make.  In  the Senate debate on the Bill to amend the Canada  Temperance  Act,  the  same  old   per  ennial discussion on what the people  of this Province meant by    their decision  in  favor of Moderation       was  again   aired.        Senator ��������� Barnard,   of  Victoria said they did    not mean <o  deprive themselves of the right;     to  private   importation.   As   to   whether  they did or did not, we are unaware,  but what we   know  is that  the  people did not in (end to put    into     Lie  hands of tlie'Government any authority, or inclination, or    temptation,  to use the contol of    liquor    for tho.  purposes of    creating a    party campaign fund.  The possibilities of thio  are to be depreciated in every way.  It is now a matter for the Prov'.n  cial Legislature to    decide    if    fhero  will be a plebiscite .on  the right of  private importation of liquor.    There  is no real need for such a plebiscite  before a general election is held.    Li  conjunction   with   a  general   election  the expense involved would be greatly    lessened    as      compared      with  what would be      incurred    were    a  plebiscite held at another time.    The  fact is that a plebiscite would probably cost the people of    British Columbia $100,000 if    held, at any time  other than when a    general election  was in  progress.      The    Legislature  1 will decide if it believes the people  should  be involved  in such  expens-j  at this time.       The state of    public  opinion  in  the     Dominion    on     this  whole  question   of  further     prohibitory  legislation   of any  character  is  distinctly one    of    unrest.      Governments are    showing a    tendency  to  exhaust the. patience of the people by  harassing legislation  and sumptuary  laws  which' are  proving    disturbing  factors in the social, economic    and  political life of the nation.���������Victoria  Colonist.  We are again in the midst of a.  fruit season with very little better  prospects that the man on the soil  will get the treatment that he should.  The difficulties' that confront the  fruit grower *nd farmer are many,  indeed are such that it does noc  make it an 'alluring occupation for  any young man to follow. We spend  thousands of dollars to make life  easy for the manufacturer, but how  many dollars to enable the farmer to  market his crop profitably? We build  roads to mines; we assist them in  various other ways, but the poor  farmer, who raises what we have tc  live on, has to make shift for himself.  At the price that some of the fruit  is being sold this year' again shows  that there is still something wrong  somewhere. The farmer should be  assisted in every possible way to  make his business profitable.

The Senate has chosen the logical  course in dealing with the attempt  to put an end to the right of the private importation of liquor into Provinces where Government Control  laws are in force. It is a question  for the people to decide. The whole  isani of Prohibition, in any shape  or fojjn, has been thrown into the  melting pot of a fluctuating public  opinion, and there it seems destined  to remain, chopping and changing  with the years. Since the prinieiple  has been laid down that in Canada  each Province shall decide for itself  on the issue Of Prohibition, that principle if it is sto be observed in its entirety, involves a plebiscite on any  such radical course as departure from  a right laid down in the British North  America Act.    It is true a plebiscite  bor and mi:i<---: ������.��������� ���������     . <.      .....    ��������� i from  our shuc Of ;.^__Lii. . j';;iji Ui������s point  of view of lire,damage we may omit  consideration of mines. Thus, if we  allow the ravages of forest conflagrations to continue at the present  pace, it is only a question of a relatively few years until we force from  our northern areas the great body  of population and all municipalities  subsisting on forest manufactures.    -  I regard the forest not as a mass  of trees but as the raw material of,  industrial expansion and of prolific  employment, and as the mainstay of  cui" thousands "of municipalities de-  pedent on wood-using industries. It-  is much more intelligent to discern in  ii, 'hush fire' the destruction of a  multitude of pay envelopes. It drives  the plain facts home when- Ave visualize every human-caused forest fire  as a blow to our national well-being  that will require three quarters of a  century  to repair.  As the situation is now, Canada  should gain enormously from- the  simple fact of possessing great spruce  areas with excellent water powers to  make utilization effective and relatively cheap. To the south we have  a partially deforested nation, exhibiting an insatiable demand for the  products of a spruce forest, chiefly  newsprint paper. Even as England's  coal served to enrich her during the  last century or more, so Canada's  spruce siud pine forests should be  taken as representing a commercial  counter almost unmatched by anything else we possess except agricultural land.  Are we to tolerate a condition  where, with every forest area on a  rising market, our own citizens with  a false notion of personal licence,  shall continue to start four thousand  forest fires a year, killing the very  resources from which the industrial  workers' of Canada stand to profit  most? I believe, the provincial governments could well afford to spend  on forest fire prevention every dollar of their forest revenues up to a  point where the forest, .capital  ceases to show an annual depletion.  If even one-half of the millions of  forest taxation . were spent on the  most modern systems of forest protee  tion we would rapidly diminish our  shocking annual losses of timber and  go far toward placing the timber  resources on a business-like basis.

With it there is- noticed in the  front, unfeathered portions of the  legs, or upon the toes, elevated scales  having a roughened, enlarged, appearance, or uneven greyish, rough  crusts. This is caused by a very  small parastic mite which penetrates  between the scales', producing an irritation and resulting in the formation of serum, which dries, ac  cumulates and pushes out the scales  The spread over the legs is very'  slow, both legs generally being affected. Later lameness may be noticed, perhaps the dropping off of  parts of the toes, the hen stops laying, becomes thin in flesh, and  through loss in vitality, is a more  easy prey to other diseases, and  death may occur.  This condition is easily transmitted by contact, and any new birds  should be examined before being introduced  to the flock.  There is no excuse for allowing  this condition to exist, a ���������poultry-  expert says, for it is easily remedied  by the application of a home made  ointment' composed of half a cup of  lard with a tablespoon of kerosene -  well mixed. This should be i;ubbed  into the parts affected, and worked  well under the scales. ' The treatment should be repeated about once  a week for a period of three weeks.  oncermn  rintim  The cost of printing depends upon something  more than the profit which the printer puts upon  Much depends upon-his plant, "his organization  his technical ability and experience.

BATES, The Printer  J  HANSON  WIRES  ABJECT  APOLOGY  OTTAWA, June 23.���������Speaker Bos-  tock, in the Senate recently, read  the following message from Hon. A.  M. Manson, attorney-general of  British Columbia:  "Please assure the honorable body  over which you preside that my letter of January to the late solicitor  general, Avhich was intended as a  personal communication, was not intended to cast an imputation or re  flection on the Senate or upon the  Parliament of Canada. If the language used can by any possible construction carry such , a reflection, I  regret it. It was not so intended and  so far as language used can by any  construction reflect on the probity of  Parliament, the same is unequivocally withdrawn."  WORKING HARD TO  KEMP UP DETOURS  EXODUS OF PEOPLE  BY RUIN OF FORESTS  Tt seems self-evident that if the  plague of forest fires in Canada is  permitted to continue, the exodus oi  population from our timber growing  areas cannot very well be prevented.  We have a large percentage of Canada's habitable area unfit for farming.  Efforts' to maintain the detours  which are in use during paving operations on the Pacific Highway con-  tiue to be put forth by Surrey municipality. At the present time, the  municipal eauipment, assisted by additional machinery from the provincial government, is engaged in gravelling the Coast Meridian - road  south of the new McLellan to thev  international boundary. Gravel for  this work is being taken from the  pit on the Johnston road. In the upkeep of the Meridian road during the  time the Highway is closed, the  provincial   authorities   promised   as  Hub Square  the machinery is being loaned as a  part of this agreement, the cost of  operation to be deducted from the  grant. With the completion of this  work, it is expected that a certain  amount of repairs will be carried out  on "the new McMillan.  At the present time both of the  detours which are in use this year,  the Hall's Prairie and the Coast  Meridian, are in reasonably fair condition, and while they are by no  means perfect they are a'distinct improvement over those in use in previous years. It is expected that as  soon as the gravelling is completed, these two roads with comparatively little work can be kept up until the pavement is opened in September. The Johnston road, although, it is not a detour, it is in  poor shape and a certain amount of  unfavorable comment on its' condition has been heard. This road,  however, will probably be improved  as soon as the machinery completes  the work on the detours, which  work  is  considered  more necessary.  Mission City, B.C.  Alex.: S.

Wednesday evening  Mr.  Sigmore  detailed - the objects of  and the benefits to be derived from  the association.      He spoke- further  on the    advisability    of    forming a  local  branch. The motion     was carried without one dissenting vote. The  following officers were elected:    Mr.  W.

J. Bowser was  loudly applauded by an audience of  3 00 people in the Empress Theatre  ].-.-������ Thursday night.  o reviewed the    steps    different-,  government    of     British     Columbia  since 1901 had taken in the    matter  of  freight rates, and  declared  when  Sir Richard  Mc Bride sought the approval of the Legislature in J!)07 to  his seel:ing  redress in  Loiuh'-n.    Mr  Oliver had    seconded an amendment  which depreciated efforts to get hef-  'ter terms at Ottawa, and that in' I!������I U  Mr. VV. A. Macdonald,  ��������� now    Justice  Masdonald, had gone to    Ottawa   on  behalf of the government in the matter of freight rates.      The fight was  allowed  to drop only when  the war  came on. Mr. Bowser also noted that  although  the , Doukhobors have been  evading the laws for ten years', Premier Oliver had'just, wakenod up to  the fact when in    Grand    Tories last  week.  "1   would     continue  the  Mother's  Pension Act, but would see that it is  fairly administered.  It is  legislation  first brought in by the Conservatives,  and 1 would eliminate labor bureaus  which were not    functioning,"    said  Mr. Bowser,  in    answering    queries  propounded   by Mr.   Oliver.    To  the  (|iiery of how to retrench Mr. Bowser  said he would decrease    cost by getting the maximum of service with a  minimum   cost,    would   handle  government work, as a successful business man would handle his    business  by cutting down    the    overhead and  reducing expenditures. ��������� He would "e-  liminate  half  the government officials and motor cars that are touring  the country to no purpose or in duplication of work, would    get    more  people, on the land, encourage greater production,    and    restore    confidence in  investors.  He urged Bonar  Tow's slogan    of    "tranauility    and  stability" as' being what British Columbia wanted or that of Lord RotU-  mere,  the  "stern   cfoe  of  squander-  mania and    craze for new    legislation."  "The time has come for'serious  thinking," he declared! "The Oliver  government must stand on its record, and he doubted if as good results were being obtained to day at a  cost of nineteen millions as were obtained at a eosfof six millions by the  Bowser government. The present  government had spent $133,000,000  in less than seven years', and what  .was there to show for it?  Mr. J. W. Jones, member for South.  Okanagan, discussed the finances of  the province and the heavy losses' incurred by the soldier settlements.  Messrs. Bowser and Jones attended a smoker at Greenwood on Wednesday evening and left in the morning over the new highway link for  Rossland.  ViiNNiPKG  WINNIPEG, June 23.���������Some very  nice.

Of the 65 farms included in the  poultry survey recently conducted  by the University, of British Columbia, in conjunction with the provincial department of. agriculture, no  less than 23<iirepresented an investment of between'$4000 and $600. or  an average of $4,967.69. A total or  12 had an investment of oyer $12,-  000 or an average of $16,289.48 and  nine were between $,6000 and $.8000,  an average of $6,600.89. Of the remainder, seven had an investment of  less than $4000, eight were between  $8000 and $10,000 and six were between  $10,000 and  $12,000.  The reason given for the popularity of the group most largely represented, that between $4000 and $6000  cannot be definitely determined from  the data obtained, but two considerations may be stated as a probable  explanation. These are first a farm  capitalized at approximately $5000  is within the reach of the man of  comparatively moderate means; and  second, many of the farms in this  group are in the process of development and are in this group only temporarily.  It was found that the average  area of the 65 farms included in the  survey was 13.6 acres. The estimated  average value of the land and buildings was $443.84 per acre, 52 per  cent, of which was in buildings' and  48 per cent, in land, the actual value  of the land averaging $213.04 per  acre. The poultrymen's dwelling  represented an average investment of  $15000, or 25 per cent, of the total  amount invested in land and buildings..

EDMONTON,' June 23.���������The berry  market here has been somewhat mixed up this week. This has undoubtedly been due to a large extent to the  L.C.L. shipments which are coming  on. Some of these shipments have  been in very poor shape and have  had to be. jobbed, and the jobbing  prices are then used as a lever to try  and get down the price of the better  berries.  Furthermore, most of the car  shipments have not been strictly first  class. 'As a matter of fact, to date  this year we do not think that the  berries have averaged up to those of  other years.  First car of California small fruit  arrived this' week and contents were  in excellent shape.      There,   are no.  outside grown tomatoes on the market this week and the trade'has been  supplied   altogether    with    the  hothouse stock. ��������� There are large quantities of local green onions, radishes,  lettuce, spinach, etc.; coming on    at  the present time. There is also a considerable  quantity of    local rhubarb  offering.    The potatoe business , has  been very dull lately.  The strawberry market is all shot  '���������o pieces. Saskatchewan was' first  '.o break. The B. C. berry season  had scarcely, started when berries  - omiuenced to back up.

They   are  oiling in on an      average    of eight  lars per day. and    the    price to the'  jobber is $2.50.   '  The    jobbers   are  uislnng the sale of straws to the lim-  t, the cheap price is    helping them.  Returns to the growers will be  disappointing.  The rival brokerage houses are  doing their utmost to prevent the  price going to a lower, point.  Wo are convinced that if central  isod control had been accomplished,  the distribution would have been  fully as great and the returns at  least 50 cents per crate more to the-  growers'.  Wet Aveather and soft berries was  the prime cause of. the early break  in price.  The canners in Washington are  buying unorganized growers' berries  at 6 cents per lb., while the bulk of  the surplus owned by the organization is being processed and held for  sale when the market gets stronger.  The crop is a heavy one. Spokane  (Green Bluff growers) have 15 cai'3  to sell this year.  Creston -reports rain    for    several-  days.    Monday and every day of   the  next week they will  send'out a car '  to  the prairies. .  Salmon Arm and Okanagan will  send about a car per. day L.C.L. and  the coast shippers will likely roll a-  bout six'cars daily for the coming  week. L.C.L. shipments from , unorganized growers are heavy and are  selling at less than carlot stuff. ���������  Under these  circumstances    there  is  little hope of the    prices coming  back to $3.00    to    the    jobber    this   .  week.  Flash  wire    just    received . from  Vancouver says that berry shipments '  to the prairies' have,   fallen off fifty  per cent, during the last    two days   '  owing to low prices prevailing there.   ���������  FOOD FOR    THOUGHT  MEDICINE    HAT  MEDICINE HAT, June 23.���������Over  2 1-4 inches of rain in Medicine Hat  during past week.

Pastures in  excellent condition.  Many persons do not    grow  roses  because   they   think   roses   are   difficult    to    grow    successfully;     and,  while these flowers      require    more  care than  some others, if the neces-.  sary work to ensure success is done'  at the proper    time the    labour    is  fairly light.    One of the greatest fac-|  tors in  success       is  to  have    clean, :  healthy     foliage     uninjured     by  injects or disease. To ensure such conditions it is necessary to begin    the  protection  of the foliage before it is  injured   to   any   appreciable     extoii!;-  hence  measures     should     be     taken  early,    The easiest insect to, control  is the rose slug, a green caterpillar,  which   does   not   usually   appear   hi  great numbers but which' works    on  the underside of the leaves and eat:j  out pieces.      These    slugs    may be  pinched  off  by hand  where    bushfis  are few,  but  Paris ' green  or  hellebore, sprayed on the .bush so that it  will reach    the    undersides    of    tho  leaves   especially,   will   kill   them.   If  Paris green     is used   it    should     be  weak' so as not to^ burn    the foliage  about in the proportion of one ounce  to twelve gallons of wafer.  Hellebore  is used  in  the    proportion     of    one  ouueo to two gallons of water.  The aphis or green fly is sometimes quite troublesome, as are the  limps, small hopping insects, which  cause the leaves to curl. Nicotine, ir.  the proportion of one teaspoonful ������o  one gallon of water; Black leaf 40 or  nicotine sulphate, in proportion of  onorlialf  ounce   to  three  gallons;   or  even soapsuds from a good oily laundry soap, are all good. The insect?  must be struck by the spray as they  are killed by contact with it, not  eating the leaf; they suck and do not  chow their  food.  for red spiders, tiny insects,  which are sometimes troublesome,  a thorough spraying with water or.  the undersides of the leaves will  clean them off if water pressure  is available; otherwise flower of  sulphur mixed .with soapy water or  tobacco  preparations  thoroughly  ap-  the leave's  Whre the Powdery Mildew . is  troublesome, it may be controlled by  sprinkling 'the bushes every ten or  twelve days with flower or sulphur  until the disease disappears. The  Leaf Blotch or Black Spot is another  disease which sometimes disfigures  the leaves very much and weakens  the plant. Ammonical copper carbonate and Bordeaux mixture will  control this, but if the' latter is used  it should be used several weeks before the blooming season, so that  the foliage will not be disfigured by  the spraying material when the  roses are in bloom. Ammonical  copper carbonate is made with one  ounce copper carbonate, four-fifths  of a pint of ammonia and eight gallons of water, the copper carbonate  being dissolved in the ammonia. This  does not disfigure the foliage. Plants  should be sprayed about once a  week after the disease is first noticed; and where it has been troublesome in the past begin at once.���������i-Ex-  perimental  Farms Note.    ..
