Victoria,   March   1.���������Entering upon the second month of its labors,the  Legislature is just beginning to get  down   to   real' business.   After  three  solid .weeks, -of spell binding on the  debate on  the  address in  reply  the  house was provided with some of the  government's legislative bill of fare,  ipening the week with measures of  ninor  importance     and     concluding  t on'Friday with the new provincial  .lection's  Act    which,     undoubtedly  will prove easily the most interesting  ' item lo the members. Practically the  whole  week  was devoted  to  getting  legislation under way and to .date a-  bout   twenty   bills   have   been   introduced though- few of them could  be  :;aid to be any enunciation of government's policy on a broad scale.  ���������    Tho- new Elections _ Act    proposes  some radical  departures    from    the  old  procedure.    The elimination    of  tho requirements of a deposit by candidates, the provisions requiring state  men'ts from the candidates as well as  from the secretary and treasurer    of  the. various political parties' of election expenses, the provisions for absentee voting,  tlie granting    to'   returned soldiers of whatever ago and  nationality,  the franchise,  especially  to Japanese veterans, and the greater  ease afforded to voters to get their  names upon  the voters'  list are, tht  chief features of the bill.    There    is  one  feature whtch  undoubtedly will  call  for opposition criticism,  that of  providing for the appointment of deputy registrars to assist in the preparation of the lists.    These officials  will, apparently operate on the same  basis as enumerators engages at the  1917  federal election. Opposition  members are unkind enough to suggest.that the plan will prove a glorious opportunity for "the boys" to  draw down a substantial stipend irom  the public purse. The absentee voting, too, will be productive of keen  debate. "While, the Premier informed the house it was a most radical  *3tep, there should not be abuse.

He appeared to take  great pride in the provisions calling  for submission of statements by candidates and parties- of their elect io.i  expenditures, though it is apparent  that the obvious method of getting  around such a provision would be to  entrust election outlays to some party stalwarts who need not keep'tlie  candidate nor the party officials informed as to details. But he saw, in ,  such "regulations; the elimination of  the former practice of donations to  campaign funds.

'  Thes'3 absentee votes will be forwarded by the returning olficer to the voter's homo division to be counted in  that division. But according lo lhe  act the final count including thes-2  absentee voters' ballots is not to be  made until at least twenty-one days  a for the election  day.  Other hills which have been under  consideration are: Amendments to  the Soldier I/and Act to increase tli-j  amount of $000,000 set aside in the  present act. to one million to permit  further operations on the South Okanagan Settlement scheme on which  some .f3r,0.000 of the original sum  together with $ 1.90,000 taken from  Consolidated account has been spent  and which, when the irrigation  scheme is completed, will probal*ly  cost another million, the Minister of.

Gillespie, Hart & Todd got  the insurance on their bid of 42 1-2<i  per if 10 0.  But it was when the Premier replied tiiat he had "no official information" that Hon Mr. Hart is a  member of the firm of Gillespie, Hart  & Todd, or, even, that he is a director  of the P. G. E., that the amusement  among members became pronounced.  For the past two years the Premier  has been silting wilh Hon. Mr. Hart  and Aitorn'ry-General Farris on the  Lonrcl of Directors which is composed of tlie three, and yet at this late  date he lacks "official information"  concerning Hon. Mr. Hart's status on  that Board.  in view of all the circumstances  Cue pertinent query is being made,  should not Hon. Mr. Hart resign as a  member of the government? Previous ministers and meiiib_rs of the  house have resigned because of similar broaches of the regulations prohibiting them from having financial  relations with the government. There  is ample precedent for such action.  The premier's lack of "official information" is hardly considered as a  proper >c.-xcus'} ��������� for his failure to ask  for that, resignation.

J. Rutherford, Dean of the Saskatchewan College of Agriculture, who expresses the following views in the  Agricultural Gazette for January. H~  says 'Farming is not the independent  self-contained occupation that it was  a generation ago. Conditions have  changed from the pioneer days, and  production has not only to do with  supplying the demands of the home  but it must aim to create an export  trade. Farming is a real business,  successfully carried on by men and  women who are not only skilful in  the art and practice, but are versed  in the science of agriculture. Farmers today are. not content to know  only how to grow good crops they  want to know also how to market  them to good advantage. They are  interested in the economic problems  of their own communities and to a  great extent In the problems of their  customers in the city. Agriculture  is both industry and commerce and  affects both the rural and the city population. The agriculturist of today  is not merely a practical farmer but  is necessarily a social worker. Rural  communities have problems which require college trained men to solve. '  I  These fine days put  one in notion that the  Garden needs   attention- again.

"The number of schools undertaking school garden work in Ontario is  'ncreasing  steadily  year  by  year as  ndicated from the following figures:  1914,  208;   1915,  222;     1'916,   324;  1917, 460; 1918/588; and 1919, 700  (approx.)       Most  of  these   gardens  i'orrn a part of the regular school property, but, as might be expected there  !s a considerable number of gardens  only and secured only temporarily. It  should be said  to  the credit of the  farmers that In very many oases the  land was loaned to the school board  'ree of charge.    The spirit shown in  *;uch acts as these demonstrates more  han  words the trend of the school  ���������jarden movement."  In view of replies made to quer-t-  .ons put by the opposition, it would  appear  that  the     term     ingratitude  might be applied to the conduct of  Joseph Walters, Liberal member for  Yale, whose attack upon Hon. D>\  King, Minister of Public Works and  the administration of that department is still fresh in the public mind.  Mr. Walters declared the department's administration to have bev-Mi a  "mi.erable failure" and asserted;that  the minister,besides being entitled to  the designation, the silent minister,  m (,ht equally well be dubbM i.he  v-LHk minister. It appears now that  Mr. Walters has not been overlooking  any bets. It would seem that "favorable consideration" has been given to  his application to lease coal lands in  lots 1303, 1304, 1305, 1307 and 1308  property of the South Nicola Coal  Company sold for arrears of taxes  in October 1919. The lots, after the  sale reverted to the Crown, Mr. Walters applied for the leases in November and, as stated, "favorable consideration" was extended to him,  s  A'  w  A  $  '%  ������  I  i*!i5  v.
