If you get a  verdict from a jury, you'll have something to stana on when���������when the  Mounties come."  Hardley embraced the offering found  i in Seymour s sudden change - from  scorn-to a practical suggestion.

'���������  This, large quamity was collected in  the space ofV little over two months.  Those best informed on the subject  claim that there are from five hundred  million to seven hundred million cigarettes smuggled frciii the United States  into Canada annually, replacing an  equal quantity of cigarettes of Canadian manufacture.  The seizure made at Brockville during the past two months would seem  to indicate that this estimate is, it  anything, below rather than above the  mark.  rive hundred, million cigarettes  brought unlawfully into Canada represents a loss in tax to the Dominion  Government of the huge sum ot  $3,655,000.

Quite a   representative   turnout  was iu evidence on Tuesday   night  at a  citizens   meeting   in   Speers"  H_ll for the   purpose of giving all  interested an opportunity to discuss  with    __.   W.    Humphrey,     M.P.,  matters that should   have   federal  attention, the member   at   present  being on a tour   of   his   riding   to  gather firsthand information of this  sort prior  to going to  Ottawa for  the session which will; open in January.    The     meeting    was   under  board of trade auspices, with Pre������j|-  dent Garland occupying t-lie?^b^lr.  Proceedings opened ..with aysh������rt  talk by Mr. Humphrey   in *. whieh  he     reviewed     the     freight    rat������  question which, in his opinion, will  be the biggest piece of business the  federal legislators will have to .deal  with when   the   house   meets. He  sketched the efforts of  himself and  the farmer-labor member  for Car.  iboo, Mr.  McBride,   in   connection  _with  the   putting back into  operation  in   1923  and   1924.  of   the  legislation that prevents the dumping   of   American fruit    onto   th������  prairie   market,   and    which   had  worked such a   hardrhip   in   1922  particularly.    He also  related that  Mr. McBride and  himself had been  successful in   obtaining   assurance  ���������from the department of agriculture  that of the four pre cooling plants  for   Britis__   Columbia   for   which  whatever  revenues   accrued   from  that source   the provincial  author^  ities would    proceed   with   further  development works. On the freight  rates question   it   -was  .quite   the  unanimous    opinion '  that   freight  schedules worked out   oh a mileage  basis was  what was   needed.    The  unfairness of the   old Crows- Nest  rates was shown  in the. statement  of    Manager    Vance   of   the   Co  Operative     Fruit -Exchange   that  this year Ontario tomatoes   sold in  com petition with the- Crsstois   product of the same sort   on the Cranbrook ��������� markets * Amendment   was  suggested   to the  regulations that  beet me effective next   year in con-  ..-..'.������������������.���������������.���������������.    .~.���������m m.   ���������..~.a^.^.������ ��������� ���������   A.._.fr-__o    ^.ir\%v___  ucuuiuu   nibU  imopiroa ��������� jf  C������ ������������vB  &U2:S���������  present taking the stand that it  should be opetional as tu whether  the shallow or deep pint haiiocks  be used. At the conclusion of the  session a vote of thanks was  tendered Mr. Humphrey for giving  sack a favorable opportunity to  discuss Dominion affairs, and. in  replying the meihber stated the  pleasure and benefit was mutual,  and assured that as in the past, his  efforts at Ottawa would be to safeguard the interests of Kootenay. in  particular and Canada   in general.  llHE CQLOHEL SPEAKS  i   .. .=���������   - - ���������      ������������������_..-.'-.  | / Victoria Daily Colonist  Greater   consideration  for   those  engaged in the mining, agricultural  appropriations Jiad     been     ���������^������ jand ^bering industries Was urged 1  at last session Salmon   Arm w^Jdl yeSterda5:fby C^ yEr^d Lister, Con-  be alotted one, Creston Valley  another, and the other twor-a-vail-  able for the Okanagan.   ...

He promised   hi**, support  to the  I proposed timber royalty legislation,  [providing it offered?1   a   substantia!  reduction   in  royalties,   which was  isadly needed in the interior,.,.Sphere,  he declared, the industry was sfeag-;  nant    Stimulating that    industry  would help the farmers, he contended, by enabling them to   sell   their  produce to the mills and camps and  by enabling them to obtain work in  tlie off season   for agriculture.  Substitution of advance polls for  legitimate absentee voters at election times instead of the present  absentee vote-system was urged on  the ground that 80 per cent, of  those voting as absentees at the last  election had had plenty of lime to  change their registration if they  had ho desired.  Col.  Lister an id it   was unfair t-o  spend millions on   tourist highways  until   the settlers' roads   were improved.

A man possessing  the temperament and qualifications of a successful organizer and administrator can attain just as high honor in the estimation of his t'ellowmen, and reap'  tar larger financial, rewards, in private lite and the business world than lie.  ^ean in public life and service. Most men occupying high office in public lite  in Canada today could easily command much larger salaries in professional  and commercial lite, and scores ol" others hesitate to enter public life ^he-  cause of the great personal and financial sacrifices which such a step would  involve. . -/  Yet it is of the utmost, importance that Canada in its Federal Parliament,  Government and Civil Service, and in its several Provinces, should obtain the  benefit oi" the services of its most outstanding and best qualified citizens. The  problems involved in framing legislation and in wise, economical and far-  sighted administration call for their services.   ���������!' ^  Why is it that so many men of outstanding ab5iity decline to enter public  life,"and why do so many men well qualified to fill responsible positions in the  public service refuse to do so? There are various reasons, but among lite  outstanding ones two or three may be cited. --  * In private lite such men are largely their own masters. They can develop their own initiative, carry out their own plans, reap the rewards of their  own successes, and are not subject to red tape.the interference of contending  political and sectional interests, and constant petty criticism by political opponents, the press, and the public generally. To a high-spirited man of good  intentions such freedom of act-ron is precious. In private life he can and  does get results; -in public service his best efforts are all too frequently nullified and the success ot" his work placed in jeopardy.  In private lite such men can command salaries commensurate with their  sibiliiies. services rendered and results achh ved.      But if a Government pro-  .   posed to pay such men salaries of equal size to devote their abilities and energies in the public service, a hue and  cry would be heard from, one end of  the country io the other, and these men  would have their names and every  act bandied about, from mouth to mouth and in Ihe press.      Such men do not  "*  have'to put up with these things nntl therefore'fight, shy of aeceplin.g\pu$*_ie  positions, and their valuable services are lost to the country and the positions  filled with less able and qualified men. wiih the result that the cottihry suffers.  Tin:--  is the reason why, so many enterprises succeed under private management and tail under .public ownership and management.  A third reason, which applies more particularly to members of Parliament,  Legislatures and Governments is lire belittling ol" those men and their efforts  and holding clu-m up before the public as objects of ridicule.

The Vreseht ! year'-is \%ritnessing a  greater stininlation than ever in corn  production in Western Canada. 'It is  estimated that 100,000 acres have been  planted to this crop ih the province of  Saskatchewan and 100,000 acres x in  Southern Alberta. Taking these two  provinces alone, a substantialancrease  in acreage is indicated, iamounting to  nearly fifty per oent. over the year  1923. There is every probability of  Manitoba's recording a somewhat  similar increase. y-���������*  Such agriculture .features as corn-  growing associations and corn shows  were undreamt of Irt Western Canada  a fe*,y years ago.    .Associations for the  promotion of coin   'grooving   ^and    to  band Vogether In mutual interest cultivators in the territories, were formed In Alberta and    Saskatchewan    in  1923.

The plots are inspect���������*  ed each spring and fall by the director  of co-operative experimexits.  I^ast' year, being an exceptionally  good one for seeding down, splendid  results were .obtained.- The best  catches resulted from the use of barley, wheat and sixty-day oats.-^ Where  "Victory and Banner oats ) were used,  there was a tendency to smother out  the timothy.  Professor Champlin, of the University of Saskatchewan, directs the  work, and the province finances it,  buys the seed, distributes it and provides the inspector. The demand for  good timothy seed in the east and in  the States ensures that this will be a  valuable crop If the'final results are  satisfactory.

"_'���������-������  Together with other features of the  national life, farm land values are recovering from the effects of war stimulation and .post-v^r depression.
