FRIDAY, SEPT.   10,    1920  $1,00  PER  Year  INCREASE  IN   RAILWAY  KATES  GRANTED   BY 'COMMISSION  Thirty-Five Per, Cent will be Added  To Frriglit, Transportation Cliur-  j*<w.lii West, Hut Will be Reduced  Five Per Cent, on December HI.  in-  31.  six  OTTAWA, Sept.. 7'.���������rUnilway companies in Canada are granted an increase of 4 0 per cent in Eastern Canada in freight rates and 35 por cent,  in Western Canada, is the judgment  of the' railway commissioners, to  take effect on Monday September 13,  and to continue in force until December 33.  . After December 31,, the increase  in freight rates in Eastern Canada  is reduced from 4 0 per cent to 35  per cent., and in Western Canada'  from 35 to 3 0 por cent. This increase is applicable to all freight  commodities with the exception of  "those which are expressly stipulated  in the judgment, and for which special provision  is made.  Simultaneously with the increase  in freight rates, passenger rates all  over the country are advanced 20  per cent so long as they do not exceed four cents a mile. This  crease is effective only to Dec.  After that date and for- the  months' period from January 1, 1921  to July 1. 1921, a 10 per cent, increase is authorized; following July  1, pasenger rates return to those in  force at the present time.  The. judgment will authorize increases' of. 50 per cent in sleeping  and parlor car rates, :and an increase  of 20 per cent in the rate on excess- baggage.  A summary of the judgment  which.has been handed down by the  railway commission in the application of all Canadian railways for increased rates was given out this evening by the chief commissioner,  Hon. F. B. Carvell.  The chief commissioner stated  that,.during the hearing which opened on August 10, and continued for  nearly two weeks, a tremendous mass  of documents had been submitted.  The work of going through this  evidence had been a very large one.  The judment will refuse to authorize  any increase in the rates on sand,  gravel and crushed stone and incidental services, such as switching  milling in transit, diversions, re-consignment, stopovers, demurrage,  weighing, etc.. but provision is made  for special applications in any or all  of   these   services.  No' increase is authorized in the  rates of milk or commutation fares,  nor in the minimum class rate scale,  or the minimum charge for shipment  Authorization is given for an. increase in the freight rate on coal  from  10  to  2 0<? a ton,  flat rate, ac-  MUST  HI* RIGHT,   IT  IS  A   DOCTOR'S OPINION  At the  banquet in Kamloops  the  other evening to Dr. King, Dr. Irving  COMPLETE P  G.

This time it is over the  game regulations in regard to mi-  gratd'y birds, such as ducks, brant  and geese. ���������  Provincial constables all over British Columbia have received cardboard copies of game regulations  from Ottawa under the Royal Arms  and signed J. B. I-Iarkin of the Game  Conservation board. Their instructions from Ottawa are to post them  throughout  their  districts.  -'Send in all copies of the Dominion regulations to Victoria and tear  down any that you have posted so  far" is the order sent oii't by the attorney-general to the same constables, in the meantime the wires  between Ottawa are being kept pretty hot.  The difference arises over number  of birds, kind of gun and a few other  things.  Dr. Swift has been appointed C  P.

It  hardly soi-ms fair'to the public that  the railroads should have such a big  "increase   in   order   to   keep   thorn   in,  business.

The freight rates  are high now and were the farmer to  add  the  increase to  his product    it  would undoubtedly, cause some very  strong comment.  Of course we understand that the  railway  commission  is  not  the  government but the government system  of  railways is a mighty big concern  these days and the extra freight  "' en the farmers' product goes into the  .coffers of tho government at Ottawa.  .Manna   lias   been   the   big   factor   in  having  the  rate  question  go   before  the   railway commission   and   he  has  had  considerable of his own  way in  the matter of increase.

The proved efficiency of these  measures, and the economic gains resulting from them, demonstrate beyond question that they will be utilized in other places where there' are  malarial districts.  The article goes on  to point out  the the  regions formerly,   inhabited  by the brilliant Greek and the solid  itonian civilizations are equally capable of regeneration.       In  Italy the  work has already    commenced,    and  much has been-done in Greece. It is  therefore assumed  that  the swamps  of  Macedonia   will   shortly  be  taken  in   hand.    In  Asia  Minor great  valleys still lie in the grip of the nios-  quite, and here is an opportunity for  a  great work  at  once philanthropic  and   profitable.    It   is   gratifying  to  be   assured   that' the  task  is   not  a  difi'cult  one.    Much  of  the country  has  now  a  sufficient  population  for  cultivation on proper principles, and  as this population is at present obliged   to   live   in   villages   selected   for  their elevation, and    therefore    far  from  the  best land,  it  is impractic  al igh way   was   up   through   the   Fraser  canyon   (loud  cheers),' but  it  is  noticed that he did not include i'on-  ticton in his present itinerary.  What  will   he say to those people who are  k.een   on   the  Penticton-llope   route?  There  is one tiling that  he can  say  and that is that the government will  complete that road  also,    bu^  will  build  the  Fraser canyon  route road  first.       But if both  roads  are  built  the tourist would have two roads to  choose from and might take one road  east and the other road west, as no  doubt  a  very  great   many   of   them  will start from the coast and want to  return to the,coast.  The delay in getting the permission of the railways to cross may  take some time, such permissions usually have to go through a lot of red  tape delays which take time, all ol  which no doubt will be right in line  with the policy of the Oliver government���������Premier Oliver's policy being  made mostly of delays and promises  and   heavy taxation.  We hope with Dr. King that the  road will be built at an early date.

This is tho conclusion  drawn by authorities who have subjected both cases to thorough investigation, and, according to a writer on the staff of an American  medical journal, Modern  there is no escape from it.

The people were always taking advantage of me and were small and  mean." "I am sorry, neighbor.  Thee will find .the same here." And  the man did. He quarrelled with all  who would quarrel and soon moved  on.  In a few months another family  came to the same town. The Quaker met the new neighbor at the well.  The same question was asked by the  stranger. Again the Friend asked! his  question: "What kind of,people did  thee have where thee moved from?"  Said the stranger, "The best and the  dearest people on earth. We wept  in deepest sorrow to leave them" "Be  of good cheer!     Thee will find just  as  good and beautiful people here," ���������  said the old    man.       And    the    new  stranger did. ,    ���������  Similarly, if a man's imagination  emphasises the risk he'll likely find  a-plenty of it. If he sets his eye'  onJy on the final results, he has won  half his battle. Some men quit before they really start and are always  looking for a place of retreat. Im-  agbiation wrongly placed ' Is the  worst kind of stumbling block. It  isin't half so much the proposition  its������lf that wins as the way it is  handled, in a race one Jockey can  \v������n with a horse that the next man  couldn't get the speed out of.���������Ex.

Dr. King, at Kaniloops, ac:  cording to the, Kamloops Telegram,  dealt witli the question of provincial highways./' Good roads, had  become his particular hobby, he said  He referred to the vast improvements  that had been made in the provincial roads during the last ten years  pointing out that where , formerly  people desiring to travel by automobile were restricted to certain  areas they were now- able to travel  long distances in a very short time.  ������������������  t1^ H   |   ������ ft ? ?.5������  The new conditions wcr:j different to  the old, and if was a big problem  today, in view of the financial -aspect, to carry out extensive building  projects'. '  ��������� The transprovincial highway had  now become a necessity and the advantages of such a road -to the coast  as well as to tlic interior, were incalculable. The tourist motor traffic would assume enormous proportions. It had been suggested that  tho government was holding down  the work' of development of provincial highways and standing in the  way of progress, in the, building of  the  link  between   the coast and  the  L'ZKSXECAW! ������JUtfttUJUrjELVrc  i::Lr;or. This was not a fact. The1  speaker went on to point (6- t.Iio tro-  medous cost of the trans-provincial highway scheme, and emphasized that in undertaking such a huge  project the government shouldered  with the responsibility must necessarily go slow. An investigation was  being carried on by railway engineers and -representatives of the govern men(, to determine the best route  The Fraser route bad been deemed  the most practicable one by. the railway engineers, but there was the one  obstacle, the dangers of railway  crossings.  Continuing  the  speaker    declared  William Gilbert's Home and Farm at Stony Plain, Alberta.  As a rule a farmor in a gov/ country does not get nearly so much as  he might from his farm. Why should  he ? Land is cheap. If he wants  to got larger returns he cs.n easily  get more land. So he reasons. He  aims, therefore., rather to increase  the size of his farm than to increase  the output from the land he lias.  But will not intensive farming pay  in a new country ?, Is it not better  lor a farmer to double the production  on the land he has rather than double the size of his form to attain this-  end ? Judging from the success of  several hundreds of'farmers in various parts of the prairie provinces of  Cauada���������the last pail of the North  Amorican continent to be developed  ���������where land is no doubt as cheap as  anywhere, intcn������ivo farming methods do pay even in a newly developed country,' especially if good railway transportation facilities are  available. One farmer who has  made- a great m:cce.-;s by fanning intensively in this now country is William Gilbert His farm ai, Stony  Plain, AJborta, about twenty miles  west of Edmonton, is being ina.de to  produce to the limit, and ynt, at the  ������ame time, is being conserved'to tho  utmost, bsceur.e the main pioducts  are- butter, milk, perk   ratifton   and  T^OOl.  Mr. Ofl-bert halls from England,  whore the farms, as a rule, are considerably smaller than those in Canada or the Unitt-.d States. There he  spent his earl;/ -i5f������, and le.trned a  good deal about .tin? dairying and  Stock raisi**?. .bi:'������fri(n3������<?R. fie came  fco Canada jn ):-)(<)., taking up a homeT,  ttend in the Wesf.. to which he added  another quarter section, so that for  ft long time be was farming tfhr*3  hundred and twenty ' acres. ' About  live yoar$ ago, Lowerer, he sold this  Taxm and bought (the cna he now  occupies at Stony 'Plain, consisting  Df one hundred and sixty scrw,  The  less worthless,  as land is rated in' the    herd    during    the    month    Oi  Western Canada. Mr. Gilbert thought  something could be done with it,  however. And he was right. During the five years it has been in his  possession, the proceeds from this  land have enabled him to spend more  than ten thousand dollars "in various  kinds of improvements, such as  clearing the land, ditching, erecting  a silo and. barns. The farm is now  In such a state that it will carry  more stock than some farms four  times as large will maintain. In  addition to his work horses, he has  kept as many as three hundred hogs,  one hundred sheep and between  twenty and fifty head of cattle at  the same time on this farm. His  aim has been to intensify as much  as possible, raising only the best  stock he can obtain.  The National records show that  Mr. Gilbert has sold more pure bred  Berkshire hogs than any other  breeder in Canada. lie is the first  Alberta breeder to sell a herd boar  to the United Stales. He says the  whole secret of producing stock of  this quality is to breed nothing but  the best. When lie started in the  hog business he scoured tho American continent in quest of herd boars  and bought the two best sires thai  he could get in the United 'States.  One is Ames Rivsil MS, whose half  brother is grand champion of. the  world/and the other was the grand  champion of tl e Kentucky state fair-  in 191G. The sons and daughters of  Ames Rival are to be found on  most , of the large stock farms in  Western Canada, including expori-  Kiontal a.nd government famis.  While Mr. Gilbert was building up.  a herd of Berks'a ires he was also  building up a herd of Holsteins and  at the present time, has, including  calves, a herd of about fifty head of  pure breds. The outstanding cow of  the herd is Mercedes Duchess 2nd.  This cow  weighs about seventeen  January last year yielded 1,800 i  pounds of milk. Mr. Gilbert's stable I  is full of good cows as is evidenced  by tho record sheets which enow i  that most of them yielded from 1,500 j  to 1,700 pounds of milk per month. -:  At tho Sunny    Brook    Farm���������the j  name by which Mr. Gilbert's farm laj  known���������a milking machine la used,!  Between eighteen and twenty cowa'  are being milked    ftt    the    present j  time.    About one-half of these cows '���������  yield over fifty pounds of milk daily.  They are milked three times daily,  and Mr, Gilbert find3 that the milking machine Is a very profitable investment,   He uses a B. L, K. milker,  which cost about $500 to install, and!  he contends the machine paid for it-[  self the first year, j  Mr. Gilbert feeds bi.3 pure breds-  for commercial profits. Tho rule,  that he follows Is to feed ono pound  of grain to every three ;.;nd a half  pounds of milk produced,.,tin.J. flacls  it profitable to give his cows this  quantity even with the present high  prices of grain, From his experiences he concludes tha>. there Is no  reason for the tfNIk shes-Ls showing,  a decreased yh'ld during the wteiw  months and h������ contend,-; that 1* a  cow Is given the proper shelter, jj.nd  feed and water ir: :������<i right jto-  portions, she will give as'moeh Milk  when stabled as  when mi  grass,'..  Ono'. of Lilt; biggest problems Mr.  Gilbert has had in the past has been  to secure enough roughage to properly, winter hbs stock, but he is satisfied that he has solved tho problem  by the installation or a silo. Last  year ho built a thirty by fourteen  stave silo, which, including the value  of labor, cos-t between 5600 aud $700  to build; and Tilled it with green  oats. The results so far have been  highly satisfactory and he believes  that it is one of the best investments that he has ever made, The  other forms of roughage that he de-  i'and wn,������ rough, low Iviag and had hundred 'pounds when in full flesh., ponds upon are meadow hay, green  more than oevonty acr^s of rr.p;,d: <���������, I Another good cow is Lizzy Wayne, j fodder, broroe grass and roots. ^ H*  *** tMU It w** auwlMrsti raw? or ii The animal thai stands third place in;i3 a-lao trying out sweet clover,     ;  if to be the policy of the government to connect up tho-north with  the southern districts'of tho province  with a good road. There would be  a large number of "feeder" . roads  wherever necessary- for the benefit  of   the   interior   forming   districts.  At Merritt Dr. King said ,'in the  matter of the great connecting link  between the coast and the interior,  and the Fraser Canyon route; which,  was the natural highway in this Province for wagon roads and railways,  we had two railways through that  great highway which had raised  some difficulties with regard to" the  construction of ,thc inter-provincial  highway by'that route. The Government had had thorough surveys  of alb possible routes made, an,d it  had been found to be feasible to construct the' inter-provincial' highway  by the Fraser' Canyon route. There  were matters of crossings and other  questions to be carefully considered  and adjusted with tho railways, and  the  .Dominion-Government,  however  before going ahead.    In    these    no- crates  from   the   "knock  down"  gotiations,  the    Provincial   , Government had  been  met  by no spirit of  objection,   but  a  spirit  of  co-operation, and  he   (Hon.  Dr. King)     was  confident  they  would  overcome     all  ���������diflicuities.    They   were   determined  not to make a false start, but to go  ahead when everything was all right.  The  government  were  dealing  with  this inter-provincial highway    as    a  Provincial matter, "and when we get  this road and we are going to get it"  (Aplause),  continued  Dr.   King,   enthusiastically,  "you will have thousands of tourists throughout B. C. by  automobile   to   every   one   that   you  have  now."���������Merritt  Herald.    '  Then   comes   the     Standard-Sentinel  with   the   following   heading;   "Hon.

The honorable gentleman    had  not forgotten his professional training.    Dr. Irving somehow    left    the  impression that many of his,hearers  would have joined the silent majority when any information  would  be  handed down."  30 STOPS'  A\'OI.!>AUIiI0   LOSSFS  \\"c notice this year that losses in  transit, have been greatly reduced  proportionately.- Fewer have been  reported this year than at any other  time. The bulk ,of the B. C. shipments have moved in car lots and  overloading has in some cases resulted in loss. Celery is one of the  products that will not stand close  loading, air spaces between the  crates being essential to prevent  heating. We have noticed some  very careless loading of celery and  heating in transit has resulted. This  can be prevented by more, "horse  sense" at shipping point.  The  '.'speed  bug"   in  making    up  in  .the packing houses has been responsible for considerable loss this year.  Crates made on the "skew angle"  will not stand up well in the car. We  have seen many crates that suggested to us that they were made by an  old woman with a fiat iron for a  hammer. It is a crime' to destroy  carefully grown and packed fruit by  carelessness in making up crates.  The nailers are the chief sinners..We  have seen well packed plums bruised  and damaged in placing the lid without a cleat inside to' raise tiro lid  free from the top of the fruit. We  think we are safe in saying that most  of the grief Litis year has been traceable to carelessness in the packing  house. The plums that-arrive from  the U. S. arc.better filled as a, rule  no bruising mars their appearance.  Cheap packing is not necessarily  good packing. We need more "care  in B. C.

This for the reason  that  the  roots  are  not  long and  feed   in  a space' not  much   larger  than   that  covered  by the  leaves, and also  because they develop a large crop in a'  short period of time.     Many growers  feel that stable manure is necessary  in growing strawberries, whilst others get just as good results by planting o nsoil which contains a large a-  mcunt of  organic     matter    derived  from green manuring crops or decaying clover sod.  A general formula, for commercial  use quite commonly recommended-in  districts growing strawberries for  market is 1,000 pounds per acre of a  4-10-2 fertilizer.

"We' have  had a favorable season for all crops  ���������grain, potatoes and turnips. Harvest will be late. Raspberries were  a good crop considering the poor  growth of canes last year, due to the  dry weather. Prices were "away  up" Many growers entered into a  five year contract to supply all their  rasps at 50 pounds per ton and they  are now figuratively kicking themselves, as prices of 13 0. pounds ster-  jam factories and others. Mr. Hodge, Hie  father of the Scottish raspberry industry has bought another  farm and will plant it all to small  fruit. The canes on the farm of Essen by where his first plantation was  made-are about exhausted. Another  farm East of Blairgowrie has been  purchased by a jam manufacturer  and he has already planted five acres  of raspberry canes. It looks as  though emigration to Canada will bo  heavy from Perthshire next year.  Thanks for the Bulletin which arrives regularly."

By this means as  low a bacterial count milk can be  produced with milking machines as  by hand milking. Milk can be produced to meet any reasonable bact-  ing plants as well as in machines distributed on dairy farms is so large  .hut investigation into the diflicuities  encountered in their operation is  greatly needed.  The sanitary side of milking machine operation was investigated  early in their development, at which  time not nearlly so much was known  about the origin of the bacterial  Horn in ' milk as . at present. ��������� Consequently it must be recognized that  some of the early bacteriological  >vork on this subject is no longer of  any value in the light of our present  day knowledge.  The authors give a review of previous investigations on the subject,  then discuss their own experiments.  Their   conclusions   are:  Heat sterilization is the only way  to successfully sterilize milking machine rubber parts under ordinary  ranch conditions. It is a practical  procedure from the time involved  and the wear and tear on parts.  Where it has been regularly done  no increased trouble with mammitis  has ever developed as a result of in-  'erial grading system. No chemical  'solution has been found to successfully accomplish these ,results under  practical conditions. Its general application will greatly reduce the discarding of milking machines after  they havo been installed.*���������Journal  of Dairy Science.  Mr. J. A.

New York says  a man fell from a four story window  and was instantly killed, while waiting for "Central" to answer his call.  He might have done worse. He might  have fallen in love with one,of the  operators.  "A friend of mine fell asleep in  the bath tub with the water running"  "Did  the tub overflow?"  "Nope; luckily he sleeps with his  mouth  open."  ^r-^s^^^^r^^^w^^sj^w^swwsM^^^nM^n^E
