Open Criticism Improves  Legislation.  ��������� The session of the House recently adjourned,  was marked  by the adoption of an unusally  large amount of important constructive legislation.   The government has delivered practically the whole formidable program  promised in the Speech from the  Throne and in some noteworthy  respects  has   gone   beyond it.  That program, it will be recalled,  foreshadowed measures on land  settlement and the. improvement  of the agricultural credit scheme,  irrigation, the encouragement of  the mining and smelting industries.' Civil Service reform, equal  guardianship of infants and the  extension of   the   franchise to  women.     All  these have been  '   passed and in addition to them  the House also adopted legislation creating a Department of  Labor   and   systematizing the  financial service of the province  in the place of the haphazard,  unbusinesslike. methods   which  have prevailed up to this time.  The session was notahle, also,  because it disclosed for the first  time the actual relations'between  the two subsidy-hunting corporations and the province. The  scandalous revelations in the inquiry into the P. G. E. with.their  sensational climax, showed how  necessary it was to the welfare  of the province for a cleaningup.  These buccaneers have exacted  their last cent from British Columbia.  The usefulness of a spirited  Opposition was also demonstrated. The spectacle of numerous  divisions following lively debates  in which government measures  Were dissected and criticized by  not only the Opposition but by  government supporters, was  something new in a British Columbia legislature, where for  years the only opposition consisted of two lone members. The  action of followers of the government in freely criticizing  ministerial measures indicated  that th _ir views were not caucus-  bound. Open criticism improves  legislation from,which the country is bound?to benefit.  To Investigate B. C.  Scandals.  Mr. Brewster has decided for  a political "house-cleaning" in  this province. He finds that  there is a cloud of scandal and  suspicion hanging   over  public  men in British Columbia and he  desire to dissipate this cloud as  quickly as possible. For this  purpose he has secured an amendment to the Public Inquiries Act  which gives wide powers for the  holding of investigations into  "any matter connected with the  good government of the province" and especially into the payment of campaign funds. He  proposes that this amendment,  which is now a law of the province, shall be made operative  immediately and that an investigation shall take place into all  the allegations concerning campaign funds, those who pay them  and those who receive them.  This is action that the people  of British Columbia have waited  for ever since the beginning of  the legislative session. Under  the Public Inquiries Act the commissioners appointed by the  Lieutenant-Governor- in-Coun.il  have drastic powers. According  to Section 12 any witness refusing to be sworn, to answer questions, to produce documents or  books or papers shall be held to  be guilty of contempt and the  commissioners may deal with him  exactly as if they were Supreme  Court judges. "And all gaolers,  sheriffs, constables,' bailiffs and  'other police officers shall give  their aid and assistance to the  commissioners in the execution  of their office."���������The World.  :5SEa3HiJ__E!

"Stay-at-home colonels are paid  $15 a day while fighting colonels  receive but $6 a day."  It is most scandalous said a  member in the Dominion House  that a colonel who went around  with fuss and feathers doing  nothing gets $15 a day while a  colonel at the front facing death  every minute of the day gets  only $6. If any preference is  given, the fighting colonel and  not the tea party colonel should  get it. ���������>  OOOOO  1 Tlie Courier has protested before against food waste and we  do so again. Too much emphasis  cannot be laid upon the vital importance of guarding against  waste of food stuff. There is  little doubt that the world's food  supply is short and that is one  reason for the existing high  prices, but waste in food stuff  will only aggravate the trouble  and prices will go still higher.  We believe it is the duty of every  one to do all within their power  to prevent waste, not only from  a selfish motive but as a patriotic  duty.  OOOOO  A Record Session.  After 67 sittings which were  all lengthy and full of parliamentary "ginger," the legislative assembly at Victoria has adjourned until August 14.  Since March 1 the legislature  has received almost 80 bills, a'nd  with the exception1 of two all  reached final stage.   Itissaid by  Mackay Smith, Blair & Co. Ltd.  VANCOUVER, B.C.

The  foundations are now being put  in for two more paper machines,  one of which is supposed to be  the largest on record, this will,  make a,total of three machines  that will  be' operated,  with a  tons of   the   finished   product  daily.  Town planning and building  has kept apace with the construction of the paper plant, and the  town of Ocean Falls today has  the appearance of an up-to-date  city. The latest addition is a  fire hall, with hose carls and a  chemical engine. The hall has  accommodation' for eight men  and is in charge of Captain Jor-  don, late chief of the South Vancouver fire department.  additions, and new buildings are  in evidence at almost every cannery. The canners ought certainly to be given a word of  praise for their endeavors to  Westernize the Indians, as they  one and all seem to be doing  their utmost for the comfort of  the natives. New, sanitary dwellings are in evidence, everything  being finished up-to-date.  The new cannery on Schooner  ���������Passage, The Provincial, is the  last word in up-to-dateness. Its  popular manager, Mr. R. Johnston, intimates he is out to can  all-the salmon that may come  his way. The system installed  is the latest Sanitary Can Co.'s  patent^ and everything throughout the plant speaks of efficiency  and the outcome of a wide experience.  The weather conditions, which  seem to have such a marked  effect on the season's catch, are  so far very good and should they  continue during the ensuing  month's will undoubtedly ensure  a large catch, which at the pres-  entcrisis will be doubly welcome.

The land is fertile and needs little or no  irrigation. The climate is mild and enjoyable ; long warm summers with sufficient  rainfall and mild winters make for excellent crops.  Large and small fruits, garden and field  crops are grown to the best advantage.  This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes. .

There has been developed in  South America a new variety of  beans which contain all the food  elements of wheat and four times  as much can be produced to the  acre. It is called "mulatinho."  Over 2000 tons of it were shipped  last year from the state of Sao  Paulo to the different states of  Brazil and to foreign countries,  especially to Europe for the feeding of Allied soldiers, they .declare that the soldiers in the  trenches are growing fat on it.  It is expected that an immense  acreage will be planted this season, and that the product will  come into direct competition with  wheat. It is said that the flavor  of these beans is so fascinating  that they jire preferred to any  preparation of .wheat.  Good Old Times.

The government has delivered practically the whole formidable program  promised in the Speech from the  Throne and in some noteworthy  respeets has gone beyond it  That program, it will be recalled,  foreshadowed measures pn land  settlement and the improvement  of the agricultural credit scheme,  irrigation, the encouragement of  the mining and smelting industries. Civil Service reform, equal  guardianship.of _infants and the  extension of the franchise to  . women". All -these have been  passed and in addition to them  the House also adopted legislation creating a Department of  Labor and systematizing the  financial service of the province  in the place of the haphazard,  unbusinesslike methods which  have prevailed up to this time.  The session was notable, also,  because it disclosed for the first  time the actual relations between  the two subsidy-hunting corporations and   the   province.     The  scandalous revelations in the inquiry into the P. G. E. with their  sensational climax, showed how  necessary it was to the welfare  of the province for a cleaning up. j  These buccaneers have exacted j  their last cent from British Co-j  lumbia. 1  The usefulness of a spirited  Opposition was also demonstrated. The spectacle of numerous  divisions following lively debates  in Vnich government measures  were dissected and criticized bv |  fiot only the Opposition but by |  government supporters, wast  something new in a British Columbia legislature, where for  years the only opposition consisted of two lone members. The  action of followers of the government in freely criticizing  ministerial measures indicated  that their views were not caucus-  bound. Open criticism improves  legislation from, which the country is bound^to benefit.  To Investigate B. C.  Scandals.  Mr. Brewster has decided for  a political "house-cleaning" in  this province. He finds that  there is a cloud of scandal and  suspicion hanging  over   public  only $6.

Town planning and building  has kept apace with the construction of the paper plant, and the  town of Ocean Falls today has  the appearance of an up-to-date  city.

The hall has  accommodation for eight men  and is in charge of Captain Jor-  don, late chief of the South Vancouver fire department.  additions, and new buildings are  in evidence at almost every cannery. The canners ought certainly to be given a word of  praise for their endeavors to  Westernize the Indians, as they  one and all seem to be doing  their utmost for the comfort of  the natives. New, sanitary dwellings are in evidence, everything  being finished up-to-date.  The new cannery on Schooner  Passage, The Provincial, is the  last word in up-to-dateness. Its  popular manager, Mr. R. Johnston, intimates he is out to can  all the salmon that may come  his way. The system installed  is the latesc Sanitary Can Co.'s  patent/and everything throughout the plant speaks of efficiency  and the outcome of a wide experience.  The weather conditions, which  seem to have such a marked  effect on the season's catch, are  so far very good and should they  continue during the ensuing  months will undoubtedly ensure  a large catch, which at the present crisis will be doubly welcome.

This fact was established at the Prince  Rupert exhibition last year when farm produce from Bella Coola Valley carried away  over twenty first prizes.

Substitute for Wheat  There has been developed in  South America a new variety of  beans which contain all the food  elements of wheat and four times  as much can be produced to the  acre. It is called "mulatinho.,,  Over 2000 tons of it were shipped  last year from the state of Sao  Paulo to the different states of  Brazil and to foreign countries,  especially to Europe for the feeding of Allied soldiers, they declare that the soldiers in the  trenches are growing fat on it.  It is expected that an immense  acreage will be planted this season, and that the product will  come into direct competition with  wheat. It is said that the flavor  of these beans is so fascinating  that they are preferred to any  preparation of wheat.  DEAL ESTATE booms in the  cities have come and gone.
