Rev. A.  Harding Priest, vicar.  Dollar and  The Farmer  The rounding out of another crop  year, with the full fruition of October harvests, again serves to 'accentuate the somewhat (rife yet tremendously important statement that "agriculture 'is the "chiefest-'iiidustry."  With possibly one or two exceptions  1923 crops are full ones. Not exactly bumper, yet of a magnitude ��������� to  again measure well up into the billions of dollars as representing the  annual turn-over. Farmers have  been handicapped for a long time  by reason of prices for their commodities very much below a parity  with prices governing commodities  farmers must buy. Despite this,  however, the business of farming  moves on apace.  Last year," 1922, the farmer's income from the cereals, hay, cotton,  potatoes, fruits and special crops,  exceeded seven and one-half billion  dollars, exceeded seven and onc-halc  dollars,        or    t     1.S00 millions  more than the preceding crop season.  Tlie showing for 1923, wind up of  the harvests now under way, is expected  to prove even larger.  Take the wheat crop: Some S00  million bushels worth fully as many  dollars. Take corn: Throe billion  bushels and worth at the farm  strong two billion dollars and oven  more, as much of it will be .convened at a profit into meat animals.  Take hay: Who ever heard of hay  getting on the first page of the  daily papers with glaring headlines  about its production and value! Yet  this year the crop is worth at tho  farm a billion and '���������'..'.quarter ���������dollars.  Cotton likewise, about 1.2 million  bales and worth to farmers 1,3 00  million  dollars.  Take dairying produce: Dairy  cattle, found on three-quarters of the J  farms, number some 30 millions, tlie j  product of these herds' filling ai. j  important part of the diet of our en-i  tire population, and by which co.nsu-]  mors pay, according to the -depart-j  ment of agriculture, three billion  dollars a year. ���������  Sketched in briefest possible form  the farming business presents somo  imposing totals. A financial statement of this industry would show  on the side of assets a capital investment of 74 billions of dollars;  (> 1-2 millions for farms,  ago hero of $12.00') per  supported and developed  ���������lv for profit,  'la the table or assets thorn ia  some cash; some turn-over in dairying, poultry, etc., and jio"padding of  the figures with the itcrn_ of "good  will". I*n tho statement "of liabilities' in this great business proposition there are of course substantial  items, yet farming is a going concern and absolutely sound. While,  there are still iniquities in ..tho  farming business, the sob stuff put  out in the efforts to catch farmers'  voles, might well be cut out.  The extent of. the farm market is  suggested, at least in part, by the fl*  gurus above quoted without going  into wearying details. .

HARROW  Minihter of Agriculture  who says that tlie cost of dyking the  Sumas lands will "not cost province  one red cent."  10,000   Acres   Of,  Crown Land Open  About 10,000 acres of crown land  are open for settlement in the Sumas reclaimed area. Col. R. D  Davies, director of tlie land settlement for the provincial government, told members ot the insurance  financial and real estate bureau of  the board of trade yesterday at a  luncheon in  the Hotel Vancouver.  Since the work of reclamation wiu  done the dyking and drainage act oi  the province property owners of tho  district would be made liable for  tho expense incurred. Work completed two months ago had opened a  territory ol 33,000 suitable acres, of  which 30,000 acres are suitable for  agrieutural purposes lie said.  Throe Districts Created  ""''"''������������������'.'The area has been divided  three districts: the -east district  which there are 7000 acres of  vutely owned land; tlie lake  trict, in which there are 12,000  acres of crown land, . and the west  prairie district, comprising L-1,000  acres of privately owned land," said  the speaker. "In the three years it  has taken to complete the work a-  bout $2,730,000 lias been spent,  principally, in construction costs and  maintenance charges.  "The dykes have resisted two high  water periods and .have been const rue ted to ensure practically absolute security against floods."  TlJK'IS of -10 iH-.VV.-i  Under the land settlement department's plan, Col. Davies stated,  lhe crown land will be subdivided  into 10-acrc tracts, providing a main  highway, branch roads, electricity  and other facilities required for a  choice farming district. Dairy fanning, he said, is the branch of agriculture which will bo recommended.  The land reclaimed I'roni the laloj  bottom', ho said, liad proved under  test to he remarkably fertile.  "The district should be settled  under a co-operative method," said  Col. Davies. "The government is  planning a campaign.of sound publicity to .settle the district. Tho kind  would have to be sold for $10, $30,  $00, and $100 per acre, according  to location in order that the government might realize I'roni it a return  for expenditures. Settlement would  be over a period of 4 0 years with interest at tlie rate of G per cent.

Such is the prediction made by members of both sides  of (lie Legislature 'who remain over  nt tlie Capital during the week-end.  h'our week's have passed and with the  pxcoption of the debate on tlie  Speech and the introduction of tho  proposed redistribution bill, there  has been nothing to enthuse any per-  sion wdio is every ready to cither ret'  in or witness a scrap of any magnitude in the British Columbia Parliament.  Clutching   for stray  straws  which  may enable    the    administration  to  foci-chesty enough to go fo the country or even  take a  chance  with the  vacant seat in Vancouver caused  by  the resignation of M. A. Macdonald,  defeated   Liberal    candidate in    the  last   federal elections, tho Oliver regime have little to be    thankful for  during the past month the llouso ho.=!  been in session.      The gross' debt of  the province    has    increased    from  $2?,.To3,1 '16   in  November     191G   ;o  $71,'132,20 I     in November 1923, an.  increase  of   $-18,000,000     in     rough  figures.       At  the present    time the  government owes tlie Bank of Commerce $4,265,000 which becomes due  on   January   2,   1924   and  according  to  the Liberal party    press,    it stil!  has power to borrow    under various  loan  acts,  $9,546,690.     It is  dollars  to doughnuts that before the present  session is ended, ��������� Hon.    John Hart,  Minister of Finance, will seek power  to   have   this   borrowing   figure     increased.      An increase of forty-etehf  million  dollars    in the    gross  'debt,  since   the     Brewster-Oliver   government  took  control,     does not make  the best of reading for Liberal memr  hers of the House    and    their supporters but the figures are down    in  black and...white. and .were-,pried 3-at  of   Hon.   John  Hart  by  Mr.  Bowser.  "Gerry"    McGeer, K.  C,     former  Liberal  member for   Richmond,  was  well  looked after    during his  work  on  the  freight    rates   case.     Tt was  thought that his bills  amounting to  $r>n.S41   of    which the    government  paid   $4S,48t,     was   fairly   good   for  any lawyer to drag down from    any  government in    presenting the  case  but Mr.  McGeer piled  on the agony  last week when it was discovered in  the  Public Accounts committee  that  he had  rendered an    additional  bill  for   $39,309   which   the    department  has  not  yet  paid. Bills  for  $03,000  for one party favorite is fairly good  going   for   any   administration     and  rumor has it "that this is not all. In  these accounts submitted by McGeer  were vouchers for transportation expenses  for an expert's  wife  while a  colored porter was not forgotten    I-0  the extent of "four-bii"  tips,  which  were included in    the l>illv The city  dwellers  arc  taking    nofirj of such  happenings  and  disclosures  but  one  may ask, what of the country people  who have not the funds to do much  travelling and    who    read    of    this  squanderniania on the part of the administration.  Just now there is an exodus from  British Columbia of those who have  been in government employ during  the past few years. Rumor has it  that a prominent official of the  Northern Construction Company, the  concern that built the P.G.E. railway,' is down in some South American republic. A. P. Proctor, deputy  under Premier Oliver as Minister of  Railways, who appears to have  been a perfect czar while in office,  is not available to be questioned.'  Succeeding M. Proctor came A. B.  Duckworth, the man whom Premier  Oliver met on a train in the Crow's t  Nest region and who put up such a 1  plausible story that he too was-installed in office. Buck worth resigned some months ago in favor of  hoiiias Kilpatrick, an old experienced railroadman in whom the aver-  ago person has confidence in.

It would appear lo us residing in  British Columbia that there is not  much kick left in lhe prairie farmer if  he permits llr's lo go unchallenged in  some way. We would suggest that he'  refuse, lo buy American small fruits so  long as he can get B.C. fruit at a  reasonable price.  Another suggestion is offered tliat  he assist lhe grower of B.

It might be well for Canada if the  Conservatives do win as then the preferential tariff in which Canada is so  much interested will go into effect.

Some.prominent Liberals in this  'district are gelling to think that a tariff  on some things would be all right���������the  pulp industry.  In  the  legislature    Premier    Oliver lias  blandly suggested that the redistribution be  given a second reading   without   discussion,  and passed on to a committee which he will  stack with a majority supporting his government, to he dealt with there. Mr.   Oliver  knows tliat according to the "rules"   of   the  leglaturc the principle of the bill cannot be  debated except on  the second reading;   aril  ho is in the habit of   asking   for   the   mo it  narrow  interpretation  of the  "rules" whenever Uebato  is  proving embarrassing.  It    is  no wonder that the leader of the   opposition  has insisted on his right to debate the principle of the 'measure at the only stage when  that debate would be in order.  Tiie bill as introduced appears to    contain  the minimum of    political    vengeance    that  might 'have been    expected   from an    Oliver  government;  but there is no assurance   that  it will come back   from   committee    without  some wicked touches for   which the.   government does not only accept the responsibility.  It is more than suspected    that the bill as it  stands is not what has been in the mind of the  government and of caucus;  and it would be  characteristic  of present government meth  ods to have the will of the.machine workers  impose on the bill in committee, and then  with tongue in cheek come back to the house  with a solemn statement of submission to the  will of parliament: Only a full discussion,  when the bill is up-for second reading, can  give a protection . against this possibility.  'If this bill is in principle what on its introduction it appears from the details now pre-  ented, there should be assurance that the  committee to whom these details are submitted for examination will not be permit-  led to alter the principle of the measure.  Take Time if Necessary���������  There are those throughout the province  who are already beginning to find fault with ,  tlie provincial legislature because of the possible delay of framing the new liquor law in  compliance with the terms of clause "D"  which was carried so decisively in the recent  plebiscite, says the Redcliffe Review.  The framing of the new liquor law will bi  one of the most troublesome the present government has been called upon to enact, not  necessarily because it is a liquor law but rather because clause "D" was so worded on the  ballot paper as to mean almost anything. Tt  has been and is being interpreted to mean any  one of a score of different things from the return of the old bar to the selling of beer and  light wines everyplace from an ice cream parlor to a grocery store.  If, therefore, there is any delay and that delay caused because of a desire on the part of  the government to get full information and  advice before deciding on any definite policy,  the delay is justiifiiable. People of Alberta  don't want any half baked legislation in this  matter nor do they want any laws passed  that the people cannot expect will be enforced  and will help to enforce.

We can't explain Why it is, but every man  goes to his of rice on Monday -morning with a  grouch. We suppose it is because he's been  resting up all day Sunday and sort of hates to  tear himself away from it. Anyway, we- know  it is so.  Take your case. We've known you main-  years and whenever you meet" us Monday  morning, we notice that you are yawning,  taciturn and unsmiling. You had a good Sunday, no doubt. Either you rested to beat the  band or played golf or did -something. Anyway that took your mind off your business  cares. Then you went to bed rather early, all  prepared to get up early Monday. When the  clock went off you were miserable about rising  and when you did get up you were ugly to  everybody.  It's the same way with all of us. We rest  too hard on Sundays. Some of us smoke too  much and most of us eat too much. Instead  of just relaxing a little we let everything of  the week go and fall all to pieces in doing  what we call recouping.  That's the reason we have "Blue Mondays."  Some day we will learn how to rest up over  Sunday without'completely'disorganizing our  work for Monday.

That powerful fleet of modern war ships, the  dependence of Britain and its dominions all  over the world, represented the latest development in naval warfare.  Wonder what the thoughts of the premi'eis  were as they glanced over that wonderful array? To some it must have brought feelings  of intense pride, as it was realized that they  had contributed thereto, but to the Canadian  premier his emotions must have been mixed  with the thought that Canada had no right,  in so far as any contribution thereto is concerned, to claim any share in that armada.  There would be little real comfort from a  realization of that sort for Premier King���������-  at least, we shouldnt think so.���������Calgary Herald.

DOLLAKS   AND  (Continued  from Pago Ono)  upward of ;">() millions against s"nu  HO millions urban population  Growl li in (owns and cities ha;  been much more rapid than on th  farm, ami this must servo to continually speed up- farmers' activities  both in production and in the purchase of needed commodities utilized in providing food and raiment  for the city. Numbers actually on  farms are considerably less than th-.  total grouped by the federal census  under "rural."  The purchasing power of rural  population, although somewhat hampered latterly by reason of low  prices for farm commodities, is after  all almost immeasurable. The verv  fact -o# unsatisfactory farm prices,  coincident with excessive labor cost/  and high taxation, these temporarily  checking expenditures, only serve to  emphasize  buying  necessities.  Farmers' wants are far reaching  and insistent. There is urgent need  of replacement on the farm of many  things which have not been bought  owing to abnormal conditions. Dairying has never been more in evidence,  not only in the dairy states but interest is keen on the general farm. Tn  addition to the seasonal requirements in the way of such things as  balanced rations, mill feeds, concentrates, the dairy farmers want moie  equipment���������more silos, more cream  separators and milking machines,  more cement construction in barns. '  Farmers' would like to do more in  the construction of poultry houses:*  interest in poultry is more keen in  granaries, barns and other out-buiid-  *ngs. The building of new houses  ori the farm has been put off from;  year to year and is now urgently  needed: similarly up-to-date equipment in the way of water supplies,  electric power and light, out-of-door  painting, etc.  I'n the home there is also the" increased demand on the part of farmers and farmers' families for all the  best things. Good roads, the telephone, the automobile, the truck,  bare all served to bring closely together the farmer's family and the  village and   town  shipping centers.  Obviously with something like  more, than three million automobiles  owned and operated by farmers, the  replacement market alone in this  respect is one of great magnitude.  In Iowa there is one'automobile for  every 1 1-5 farms. In Ohio one for  .every 2 1-2 farms, figures for other  stntos'���������similarly impressive. Nor has  tlie point, of saturation yet been  reached. . -  With the wider diffusion of knowledge, with the broader understand-  mg of sanitary conveniences and  comforts in the home, with the  broadened outlook through the read-  'iig of high class agricultural papers  and other magazines, the farmer's  wife demands the best.

Farmers are  getting more and more away from  the one-crop idea, except in a few  states. This has been brought about  by force of circumstances. It is  notably true in such branches' of agriculture as dairying, with a milk  check every month; production of  poultry and eggs; a- constant'turnover, to consuming markets the best  in the world, and at highest prices.  Finished meat animals are leaving  the feed lots each month through  winter and spring, the special money  crops, the output of truck farms, the  large and small fruits continually  marketed  from April to November.

At a  meeting of 'the Grand Pre Memorial  Committee recently held at Moncton,  arrangements were made for an excursion 'to Grand Pre on that day.  Special trains will carry people from  all points in Nova Scotia to the little  town from whence the long suffering Acadians were deported by the  English in 1755, and it is anticipated  that people will join the excursionists from all pants of the Dominion  and the United States. ������  One of the feat'-.res of the day's  programme vv,!'-1' \<i the unveiling, in  the Memorial Chapel, of a statue of  the Madonna, which will be erected  in recognition of the noble work  accomplished by bhe Acadian National Socieite L'Assomption, the  Madonna being the patron saint of  this society. The statue, which is  7V2 feet high rests on a six foot  base, has great beauty of design,  and is claimed to be the finest of  its kind on the American Continent.  inscl, the- Statue ul liviuict-line.  As conditions are not as bright as  they might be financially in Acadia  the interior of the Memorial Ghapel  will not be completed this year but  a committee has been formed to  collect Acadian relics and souvenirs,  and to obtain, if possible, further  works of art that the interior of  this institution be in keeping with  the statue. While the exterior of  the chapel is plain it is the intention  of the Committee to have the interior as elaborate as possible. It  will not be used for church purposes but as a museum and white  and tinted marble with mosaic flooring will be used with autistic effect.  Many will visit Grand Pre, not so  much for their interest in Acadians,  as because it is bhe setting of Longfellow's story of the deportation.  Evangeline is honored in immortal  stone and large numbers have journeyed, particularly from America,  to lay thoir tributes on the statue  which is a monument not only to  the heroic Acadian maid, but to the  great poet whose writings she once  inspired.  agnif iceot Specimen of Moose Head  THIS record moose head from  an animal shot in Northern  Ontario has been secured by  the Canadian National Railways to  be placed in their building at the  British Empire Exhibition in London. The head has been specially  mounted for display and is one of  the finest specimens ever secured.  As far as is known only two larger  moose heads have ever been secured and one of these was pre-  ���������sented to the late King Edward  "VII. by Canadian sportsmen.  The particulars of the head  shown in the photograph are interesting. The spread of the antlers  is 70 Vi inches from tip to tip. The  weight of the antlers, before  mounting, was 64 pounds. The  length of the right antler from the  base of horn to the tip is 37Va  inches and that of the left antler  39 inches. The width of the left  palm at the widest point is 15  inches and that of the right 14 XU  inches.       The  points   total  28   in  number, there being 14 on each  antler. The weight of the animal  was 1,400 pounds.  Before being shipped to England  the head will be displayed in the  windows of ticket offices of the  Canadian National Railways in  various cities. It is now on exhibition at the ticket office at tho  northwest corner of King and  Yongc Sts., Toronto, where it is  attracting much attention and comment.  \s^^^asB^m<L^sstaiSsra^rsv^si   gs������Kgq������ttass������pa!  ���������sr.  mnv������^ogmgaioCT^������m^m^-^ai,tit^CTgW!

No thing Wrong in  Counsel's Bill  Debt Grows  Under Oliver  VICTORIA. Nov. 24.-���������The gross  debt, of the province since the Oliver  regime commenced iu I(ll.r> lias been  increased by over forty million dollars. In I til G the gross debt amounted to $2:���������{. 1 ii3; 14G, while at, November 1, :i!)23, the figure stands at  $71,432,201.  Figures were filed in the house  yesterday by Hon. John Hart, minister of finance, in answer to queries  raised by the leader of the opposition.  Hon. Mr. Bowser.  The net debt in November, 1910,  was $1.9,("77,534, while on the November 1, J 928, it amounted to $59,-  29 2,717. or an increase of $40,-  000.000.  Deductions, explains Mr. Hart, include P. G. E. stock, revenue producing debt and "additional deductions  I'roni gross debt," $20,������17,450.  During the past year the  govern-  WeeklyLetter  From Victoria  (Continued' from   Pago  One)  vacancy in Vancouver went by flic  boards last week when his bill ..as  given a six month's hoist. VV. K.  Ksling Conservative member for  Uossland, who has been av thorn in  the flesh of the government in his  P. G. E. investigations, met with another rebuff when- the government  refused to allow a construction accountant named Robertson to, delve  into the books of the railway company on the ground that Robertson  was not a public accountant. Kenneth Duncan, Independent mom her  for Cowichan, received siniiliar l.reai-  ment in his attempt to have, the  government place an embargo on Hie  export of logs and unmanufactured  lumber from British , Columbia lo  the American side of the, lino. Mr,  Duncan cited statistics to tho effect  that American capital were buying  up every timber,berth on tho Lower  Mainland and Vancouver and thai  they were merely cutting the timber  for it lo be manufactured in mills in  Washington State. Hon. T. D. Pal-  tulo.. Minister of Lands, fcarful-of  treading on the corns of the big interests, pointed out that a royal commission on the pulp industry was  now in session and proposed that  Ottawa extond the scope of such  commission t.o lake, in all lumber  products.  ' It. is in the proposed redistribution  measure that I ho chief kick lies. The  bill brought down in the House last  week is such a gerrymander that. Mr.  Bowser and his' associates absolutely  refuse to sit, on the select committee by the Premier to look into the  bill. Four Liberals, Karris, Peterson, Kergin and Campbell as against,  Harry Ncelands', ' Independent, and  W. J. Bowser and W. A. McKcnV.io,  Similkameen; what chance wou.d  the Opposition have against any  steam roller method which are sure  to be put into effect. Tt is interesting  to note that the original draff bill  prepared by the Premier during fh-i  summer months, during which lie  had a map prepared showing tbe proposed new boundaries, was of sucn  a nature as to arouse opposition in  his own riding of Victoria. Mr. Oliver, after the scalp of Harry Pooley,  desired to eliminate the riding o:'  esquimalt off the map, a constituency by a member of the Pooley family  for twenty-three years. TSsquimalt  voters of both parties showed their  resentment to such a move as to  burn an effigy of Premier Oliver in  public while Hon. John Hart saw  his majority wiped out by tbe in  elusion of the Esouimalt vote. The  draft was changed and the copies  sent out to Liberal friends' were ordered destroyed. Whisper lias it  that the Opposition are in possession  of one of these originals and plan io  sprine; it when the bill is being debated  on.  VICTORIA, Nov. 2(5.���������The storm  which has been brewing in political  circles broke this morning in public  accounts committee . and for a time  spectators had to button their coats'  to keep their necks and pull their  hats down over'- thtir ears to hold up  their own in the gale of vituperation  that swept through the room G. G.  McGeer, K. C, government counsel  in the freight rate case, and W.".T.  Bowser, K. C, Conservative party  leader, were the storm kings. Of  useful information a few details  were afforded, but of straight-from-  the-shoulder verbial wallops an immeasurable quantity was let loose.  The committee was investigating  Mr. McOecr's bill as counsel in the  freight rate case. To Mr. Bowser's  suggestion that, in addition to the  $4S.OOO account already settled and  the $59,000 unsettled there might  be another bill, Mr. McGeer said:  "There will be no other bill and  you know it. That second bill is  not taxed and is not before the committee. You have not a scinilla of  fairness-. You will do anything t.o  iniii'der a man."  Makes  Direct Charge  To this Mr Bowser retorted: "You  people have been trying to murder  me for ^0 years."  M. McGeer charged that the openly man in the west who had a  grasp of tlie freight rate case.  A Useful Directory  Municipal  Who's Who in  Canada  There is shortly being published  a record of Municipal.men which will  be interesting to all those wiio are!  following civic questions in this  country, entitled "Municipal Who's.  Who of Canada."  Throughout Canada we can pick  out the name of a mayor who is very  much in the limelight, but as to  those who are serving their community faithfully, and this is true in the  great majority of cases, we do not  know who they are. This work is  being prepared to answer just such  questions.  The work is a very considerable  undertaking as there are nearly  fifty thousand ..-municipal men in  Canada. It will be published in  chapters, the first being devoted to  Mayor.s of Communities' of one thousand or over, and this will be followed by other chapters, which wilt include members of Councils and Officials.  The data .included will contain a  wonderful amount of information of  reference value, and as photographs  of many of the principal mayors will  accompany their biography the volume will-have a touch of intimacy  which ���������would be lacking without  these pictures.  ���������The same ideas will be maintained .throughout'the work, which will  include several chapters extending  over several months.  The Municipal Review of Canada  is to be congratulated on having undertaking such an important work  which will fill a great need in the  life of the  Dominion.  At the close of his" talk before a.  Sunday school'the bishop invited  questions.  A tiny boy with white, eager face,  at once held up his hand.  "Please, sir," said he, "why was  Adam never a baby?"  The bishop coughed in doubt as  to what answer t.o give, but'a litUe  girl, the eldest, of several h roth errand sisters, came promptly to hi.i  aid.  "Please, sir," she answered smartly, "there.was nobody to miss him."  Why should a person think that  the Harrop Hall needs a new caretaker? Mr. Harrop appears quite  satisfied with the way he manages il.  ment has borrowed upwards of $8,-  000,000, including $4,305,000 owing  to the Canadian Bank of Commerce  on money borrowed on treasury bills  These bills fall due on January 2.  1924, when it is probable that another order-in-council will be passed to  issue more treasury bills to repay  the   bank. The    government  ha3  the power at its disposal to borrow  an additional  $9,54(5,090.  i ll  Railway News  Li  Winnipeg.���������Claiming this year's,  record for an early shipment of  grain, the Lake of the Woods Milh  ing Company on August 3rd moved  the first car of new wheat to the  head of the lakes. The grain, which  came from the farms of John Siemens and M. Wodiinger, of Rosen-  feld, Man., graded No. 1 northern  of line qualify. It was shipped from  the Lake'of the Woods elevator at  Kosenfeld over the Canadian Pacific  Railway to the Lake of the Woods  mill at Keewalin.  .

This year I here were 16 candidates  in the contest, which was held last  month, comprising students from  Halifax, N.S., to Victoria, B.C.  George Harold Kingston of Prescott  received the highest number of  marks, winning one of the scholarships, which means free tuition at  McGili College, Montreal, for live  years. Mr. Cyril Nerontses, of Victoria, B.C., won second place.  Calgary.���������Ronald W. Greene, of  Winnipeg, who was recently appointed assistant general agent of  the Canadian Pacific Railway ocean  traffic, with headquarters here, has  arrived in the city to take over his  duties here. Mr. Green will have  offices in the C. P. R. depot and will  handle all Atlantic and Pacific  steamship business in the Province  of   Alberta.  W. C. Casey, general agent of the  passenger department of the C.P.R.  ocean traffic recently arrived iii the  city. While discussing ocean traffic,  Mr. Casey said that the addition of  the two new steamships, the "Empress of Canada" and the "Empress  of Australia" on the Pacific coast  run, has ensured a 25-day service  between Hong Kong and London  and Paris. He said that Orient passenger traffic was reasonably fair  at the present time and believed that  traffic would he very heavy in the  fall, both to and from the Orient.  Vancouver. ��������� With every hotel  along the Canadian Pacific Railway  taxed to capacity, and with the  coastwise steamship offices reporting a greater volume of travel than  ever before in their history, Western  Canada is enjoying a toui'ist traffic  this year that has never: been  equalled in past seasons.  During the past few days it has  been necessary for the majority of  the hotel motor buses to make four  and five trips to the hotels from the  steamers in order to accommodate  the incoming passengers, and the  trains both from the east and from  local points: have been similarly  well filled with visitors.  "Tourist traffic over G.P.R. .western lines is far greater than it was  in 1921,"; said General . Passenger  Agent H. W. Brodie on his return  from an inspection trip which carried him as far as Banff. "Travel  is now at its full height and many  Americans are seeing Canada. Trains  both ������ast and westbound are well  filled, and Western Canada is enjoying a great summer season."  ��������� Ali the mountain resorts along  the main line of the C.P.R. are  being well patronized, and the Arrow  Lakes and Okanagan; scenic points  are also the Mecca for hundreds of  tourists from'the American side.  Boats bound for Alaskan ports  are being well filled every trip,  while the ferry steamers between  Vancouver Island and Seattle and  Vancouver are loaded to c-i^acity  every   trip.  The opening of the Banff-Lake  Louise road through the mountains  has done much to bring a large volume of auto tourist traffic to Canada this year, state 'C. P. R. officials,  and when the Banff-Windermere  highway is opened this fall it is expected that there will be another  large volume of tourist traffic diverted through British Columbia.  "Many cars are coming from  Spokane and Seattle up through  Lethbridge into. Banff .and Lake  Louise," says Col. Clarence Lougheed  of Calgary, "and when the highway right through the mountains  is completed both Alberta and British Columbia will get a large volume  of auto traffic annually. Hundreds  of cars have come through Alberta  this year, and they would continue  on and return to the United States  by way of Vancouver if the roada  were open! Alberta autoists are also  anxiously awaiting the completion ol  th- roads through and it vail un,  doubtedly mean a big thing everj  year to British Columbia,  Christmas Pudding  Cake  Give us vour orders early Cor Plum Pudding-:-  and Christmas Cakes,    so I ha I yon    will not  lv:  disappointed later.

The  'railways arc doing all in their power  to prevent accidents. If they were  only met half way many fatalities  would be avoided and many automobiles and limbs -saved from the  operating theatre.  A few days ago at Ayr, Ontario,  a man named \V. Zchr was driving  south in a Grant automobile across  Northumberland Street. He ran  into the side of a train, striking it  behind the locomotive. As a result  of the impact. Mr. Zehr's automobile  was badly broken, but the injury to  the train was slight. The train was  switching at the time of the occurrence.  4. convenient and effective method  of killing cats is to .chloroform them  in your own back yard, after sunse  <������=  S\  INSURANC  OF ALL KINDS  NOTARY PUBLIC  Marriage Licences Issued  REAL ESTATE���������Money lo Loiin on Good Farm Moitt.������ng������s  .cCallum  Abbotsford  lMllill'AKHDXKSS  for any emergency is provided  by our canned and preserved  foods and table delicacies.

PRINCE RUPERT, the terminus of the Canadian National Railways  in Northern British Columbia, has come to the fore of recent years  as one of the premier fish-producing areas of the Dominion of  Canada. Prince Rupert halibut is known all over the American continent, and the industry has reached large proportions because of the  distribution service placed at the disposal of the fishermen at that port  by the Canadian National Railways.  The one essential in the fishing industry is ,the speedy marketing  of the fish after they are caught. By means of a rapid express service  over the Canadian National, halibut and other fish from Prince Rupert  are laid down in Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto and other Canadian and  America cities very quickly after they are landed from the fishing  boats in Prince Rupert harbor. _ _ '  r-  i  il  'E^m^rm^^^^^^i^^m^^^^^m
