"  For an hour he watched them as  thes" directed the morning clean-up of  the treasure gathered on the riffles-���������  cross cleats of wood on the bottom of  the sluice troughs���������from, tbe" pay dirt  washed --the previous day. One departure from the regular placer practice stood out. The gleaners carried  two sacks, one twice the size of the  At every Yifile, contributions  of major operations. There were  three sluices here, near a bench that  had been shattered by a recent explosion. No crew of white miners  could have shown greater industry or  fewer lost motions than the natives  at work there. And as below, he saw  no- sign of a white oppressor.  Then, from a tent near the Indian  encampment, there emerged a brawny  man who answered the O'Malleys" description of Bonnemort, he who nearly  had done, for Bart. Six feet two or  three and built from the soles up, he  stood looking over the "busy scene.  In a flash, Seymour recognized the  red-headed man who had insisted on I  sending wine to the young Mounties |  in that Montreal cabaret. Something  of a change of scene, this; but not so  surprising in Canada���������land - of far-  flung opportunities.  The sergeant surmised this to be  the alleged breed's first appearance of  the    morning. Confirmation;'  came  with the appearance of a young squaw  hearing a tray of breakfast which she  spread on a rough table before the  tent. Indeed, this breed must have a  "way" with the Siwashes, thought the  sergeant, to command from them such  competent service. From his reserved seat in the brush; he envied  him the cup of steaming coffee and,  later, the cigar which the autocrat of  the wild lighted. This last waa particularly tantalizing to one whose pipe  must perforce remain cold.  Presently ""came    a    small man on  horseback, all-white, puttee-clad, and,  on reasonable supposition, one Kluger  by  name.       Dismounted, the new arrival, reputed to be the "brains of the  outfit," did not come to his  partner's  -shoulder;  but from the rapidity of his  movements, Seymour judged that  his  small  frame  concealed  a   dynamo   of  energy.      The two conferred a moment, th-t-n started    toward'' ihe    sluice  box.  NERVES  BETTER NO  Received   Much  Benefit   by  Taking Lydia E.

I  had a girl working  for me a wholo year  If this was a division of the yield  between the managing sharpers and  working owners, it seemed unnecessarily clumsy. Why did it need to be  done on the dump in such piecemeal  fashion? Both parties to the proceeding seemed satisfied, however.  There was no haggling, not even discussion over the division, if such it  really was.  In the end, the two whites, between  them, carried the larger and heavier  sack to Bonnemort's -tent, while the  two Indians who had made the cleaning carried off the smaller hag to one  of their wickiups.  After spending several minutes  within the tent, behind closed flaps.  the partners catae out and .. started  down-stream, Bonnemort walking  with long strides beside the mounted \  Kluger. "To the sergeant, the supposition seemed reasonable that they  were bound for a clean-iip at the lower diggings and that, for a time, the  upper creek would be free -������f whites.  He decided upon a bold stroke, the  success of which would depend upon  how far the Siwashes had been taken into confidence.  Going down the- creek bank in the  brush until he was out of sight of the  camp, he gained the trail and started  back. He walked as openly as.though  he belonged to the outfit; stopped a^  several points to look critically at the'  work being done, then strode on wi.h  a nod or grunt of approval. None  challenged his advance; not even a  look questioned him. He entered the  tent as though he had every right to  do so, as, Indeed, he had, although It  was a right of a different sort than  any who observed him might have imagined.  As the canvas flaps fell behind liim,  he made a rapid survey of the interior���������two folding cots with bedding",  camp stools, a table built of empty  dynamite boxes With the labels of the  t "Kingdom Come" brand much in evl-  I dence, and an improvised clothes  I horse hung with an assortment ot*  I masculine apparel. His particular  interest settled on what looked like a  carpenter's tool chest, but which, for  want of any likelier container, he took  | to be the camp's treasury box.

In fact, some of the Legislatures, including; that of Saskatchewan, are now sitting. ...... The .time is Opportune, therefore, to again press for ^action in regard to a matter which has on  previous occasion,*- been the subject of comment in- this column. We refer  to the unnecesasrily large membership in most of-our "Legislative bodies, and  to the equally unnecessarily large and unwise sessional indemnities paid these  members'. *'7 ' "     ^ *''.-���������  Canada does not require 'approximately-'-''one.'thousand. Senators, Members of Parliament, and M.L.A.'s to direct its Federal and Provihical legislative and administrative work, nor should it be "necessary to pay quite so many,  millions of dollars annually to public-spirited men to direct the affairs ot  this Dominion as representatives of the whole people. ���������  At the last  session of the Saskatchewan!" Legislature  a  resolution  was  adopted in favor of a reduction in membership when the subject of a redis-  : tribution  of representation again came up for consideration.      The present  session is the fifth of the existing Legislature and there is a  strong probability it will be the last, and, as a rule, redistribution, when it is necessary,  precedes dissolution.      Regardless of the fact whether dissolution is impending in Saskatchewan or not, it is to be hoped that the pious resolution of a  " year ago will be translated into effective action now, and Saskatchewan thus  lead the way in the direction of'smaller'legislative bodies/and a'-consequent  '-welcome relief of the over-burdened taxpayer.  While it is easier to create new "Provinces and new Legislatures than it is  to merge two existing Provinces into one, because in the. process of amalgamation so many conflicting interests have to be reconciled, the fact remains  that, so far as the three Prairie Provinces and the three Maritime Provinces  are concerned, each.of these groups have so much_ in common that one Provincial Legislature in the West and one down by the sea could-just" as efficiently, and much more economically, legislate for and administer Provincial  affairs as can the six separate bodies now in existence. Because the problems involved in amalgamation are difficult, constitutes no__ya3id reason why  tlieir solution should not be attempted.  **   ���������'  Reduction in the amount of indemnities paid is much easier of attainment  than reduction in the number of constituencies. All that is required is the  consent of th<5 present members. Indemnities ^o Members of parliament and  of Legislatures were first intended, as the word itself indicates, to constitute  a reasonable reimbursement for out of pocket expenses connected with the  discharge of public duties attached to these positions, rather than what it  has come to mean, namely, an annual salary.  Just prior to and during the late war, when the purchasing power of the  dollar rapidly declined, there was a steady increase in the amounts fixed as  "sessional indemnities." The war is over, and the dollar has regained some,  if not all, of its former purchasing power, but indemnities still remain at the  old war figure. It is time they-began to decline and were brought down to  a level where they more nearis* approximate io actual out of pocket expenses  oi" members both at Ottawa and the various P-rovincial capitals.  While holding the view that members should be indemnifiejd for expenses4  Incurred by reason of their public position, we much, doubt the wisdom of  paying what amounts to substantial salaries. It would be a mistake to make  our legislative bodies a preserve for only men of means and leisure and practically bar from membership hard working men and women of small means.  But a reasonable indemnity provides the necessary safeguard against any such  development.  On the other-" hand, large Indemnities havo a tendency to attract men for  the sake of the salary rather than to render public service to the state.      It  has been said that the personnel of* our Parliament and Legislatures has declined coincident with the advance in the so-called indemnities  this Is true or not, danger lies in that direction.  ed it Ls only human for a member to ^erlously consider the effect his Vote may  have on some important*and grave issue in precipating an election beforethe  legal term or.' Tarliament or Legislature has expired, and thereby possibly removing him from legislative halls and ,a substantial salary, not to mention  other perqui.-iii.es of his public position.  With elections not far distant in the Dominion arena and several of the  Provinces, the powers that be would not be guilty of ma'king a tactical blun-  i*-'i- v.ith the voter;*, at large If they proceeded to reduce both the number of  ii'--mb'Ts elected and the size of the indemnities to be paid. It is doubtful  _;' :r:.ir.y present members would care to fa.ce their constituents in opposition  to ?uch much needed reforms.

Whilst this greater interest  in the industry has been evidenced in  every part of the Dominion it is particularly noticeable and more significant in the western area, which has  rapidly transformed from an importing to an exporting area, and which .is  largely responsible for tin* stimulation  the ^^irdJan-^aii?3Mi3>d������&fepy has been  experiencing. -  Canada's output of creamery butter  in 1323 was the���������highest on record,  amounting to 163,456,659 pounds val-  .> ued at $56,894,008. This compares  with -s2. " "tsroducilon of -i*-.*> Kni <ino  pounds worth $53,453,2|2 ill 1923. The  increase in the quantity of production  in 1923 was 10,954.859 pounds or 7 per  cent.������ and in value $3,440/726 or 6 per  cent. The average price per pound  in 1923 in all of Canada was 34 cents  compared with 35 cents in 1922. The  aggregate value of the butter produc-  * tion has only been exceeded on one  occasion, when in 1920 the average  price was 57 cents.  The province of Quebec led in 1923  in butter production, accounting for  60,179,616 pounds valued at $20,741.-  454, followed by Ontario with a production of 54.773.1S0 pounds worth  $19,443,505. Alberta continued to occupy third place with an output of  17,626,155 pounds worth $5,811,222. In  the year Saskatchewan took the fourth  place from Manitoba, having a production of 10,867,010 pounds valued at  13,632,077 against the sister province s  output of 10,730,060 pounds worth  $3,662,444. Nova Scotia's production  was 3,550,666 pounds worth $1,353,118;  that of British Columbia 2,961,164  pounds worth $1,250,485; Prince Edward Island 1,537,437 pounds worth  ?542r845;  and New Brunswick, 1,231,-. I  Potatoes  For Seed  Selecting     the      Tubers     on      Their  Individual Med its  The    hill   selection   of potatoes for  seed having proved unsatisfactory at  the invermeie,  British Columbia,  experimental station, a trial was made  of   selecting the  tubers  on   their individual merits.     Three or four weeks  before planting time the potatoes are  brought to the light  and allowed to  sprout.      Only tubers showing strong  vigorous sprouts  are  selected.      The  superintendent of the station remarks  that all varieties do    not    show    the  same sprouting tendencies of characteristics, but the  grower will readily  learn to distinguish the strong vigorous tubers and reject the weak ones.  The  average yield for four  years  of  seventeen varieties selected    in    this  way was  28 tonsf������175 pounds, /which  was 124 per cent. higher*than the average yield of the four preceding years  with the same varieties selected from  the hills.     Not only are the yields increased from the individual selection,  but diseases are eradicated or at least  held in check.

As the problem is a serious one^nd  concerns oats and other coarse grains  to even a greater extent than wheat,  ancl as thb pool is- not equipped to  handle these grains; it was* felt that  the conditions warrant the re-establishment of the Dominion Seed Purchasing Commission which rendered  such useful service in the years 1917  to 1922. * ,      **  said Mr. Smoot, "which will be sufficient guarantee to warrant our build- j found in farming with their assets.  ing a factory at some point in Southern Alberta. ,   ^ ���������  Mr. Smoot said tnat the proposed  factory would only he the first of what  would develop into a chain of refineries. "I do not think the company  would figure on coming to "this country to put in only one sugar factory,"  he said.  The "Utah-Idaho Sugar Company was  operating this year fourteen factories  in the states of Utah and Idaho."-   The  It ha!* long been realized that in the  achievement of such an honor there  was^o .material profit for a Canadian  winner. Generally, in a consideration  of the various details entering into the  -business of exhibiting, and the flood  of inquiries he received as the result  of his award, he was subjected to a  not inconsiderable monetary loss. _ In  1923, for instance, one hundred members of the Canadian Seed Growers-  Association    exhibited ''their products  initial unit in Alberta, he said, would   at Chicago,  winning no less  than 92  cost $1,500,000.  Illiteracy   On the   Decline  Improvement      in      the      Educational  Status of the  Population  Illiteracy is steadily declining  throughout the dominion, according to  information compiled by the dominion  bureau of statistics. This improvement in the educational status of. the  population five years or over, during  the last 20 years, is indicated by the  awards, including six first prizes and  {the world's championship for both  wheat and "oats. Yet the total cash  value of the 92 awards amounted to  only about $900. Canadian exhibitors  have been actuated throughout the  years mainly " by a sense of true  sportsmanship and the laubable desire  to bring agricultural renown to their  country.  *  However, in support and appreciation of these efforts and of their true  value  to   Canada,   and   to   offset  any  .                       ,.                  _. c ,,���������,      ! danger of possible exhibitors refrain-  decrease m the percentage of illiter-1 .       _. , _.    . .  __._ ,    _, _,_ _._   _, _,_       ,._  _-,._] ing from entry from materia! eonsid-  '��������� eration, the Canadian Seed Growers-  Association has been instrumental in  471 pounds worth $.456,557.

II-  To Help Livestock Men  Move Made by High Commissioner to  Reduce   Cost  of Transportation  Further modification of the regulations of the British Government which  followed the removal of the cattle embargo are being sought through Hon.  P;--C: Larkin, high commissioner, who  is taking up tlie matter with the new  Baldwin ministry.     "What is sought, is  the abolition of the three-day quarantine prior to shipment and also of the,  requirement that a veterinarian must  -go overseas with each shipment. Time  in  transit   counts   in   the  quarantine  period and thus the "effect, is felt more  in'shipments from Ontario than from  the west,     The department objects to  the. cost  of sending along*1 veterinarians, 26 men now being required for a  service   .considered    unnecessary    on  shipments from a country which has  never had the foot and mouth disease  which is what is .guarded against.  Successful Sheep Sale  Good Prices Are "Obtained For Sheep  At Regina  The recent sheep sale held at Regina was one of the most successful  ever held in this province, according  to. the provincial livestock commis,-  sioner.: ���������'���������������������������"The top price of the sale was  $102.50, paid for a Shearling Oxfoi-d  ram. Tlie average price paid for Oxford rams was $42.00 per. head, $37.00  per head for Shropshires and ..somewhat'" similar averages ..for South-  downs,, Leicesters and Sufi oiks. All  the. animals entered were sold and the  demand was greater than the supply.  Now     Being  Increased  Norway's Merchant Fleet  The combined tonnage of the Norwegian merchant fleet Is now the fifth  greatest in the world and of practically the same size as before the outbreak of tho World War in 1914. Older steamships wrecked during the war  have been replaced with modern steam  and motor shins.

Record Salmon Pack  ..- Figures totalled by the Dominion  Government Fisheries Department at  Vancouver *. recently Bhowed a total  pack of 1,616,824-cases of salmon with  a few hundred cases yet to come this  season. This means that for the present year the canned salmon pack has  been the largest in the history oE the  province/as the previous large output  was in 1918, when 1,616,157 cases, were  packed.  Exported in Greatly  Quantities Says  Report  Butter is being exported from Canada, to Japan in greatly increased  quantity, according to Mr. Kano, commercial secretary at the Japanese  consulate at Vancouver.,. In 1922 a  total of 7,681 pounds of butter was  shipped ���������from Canada to Japan. This  year to date** one Wes tern Canadian  dairy company alone, has exported  200,000 pound.*:, while there are five  other companies in the same business.  In 1922 the amount of cheese inipiort-  ed to Japan from this country was  only 85 pounds, while one company's  shipments' this year already are 10,-  000 pounds.  Increase In Cereals  , It is estimated by the Dominion  Bureau of Statistics that more than  56,000,000 acres were devoted to field  crops in Canada in 1924, as compared  with 53,310,092 acreB in 1923. Wheat  occupied 22,054,658 acres, a decrease  of 167,206 acres from last year. There  were 14,480,568 acres of oats sown, a  slight increase over hist year. The  area sown in -flaxseed was almost  dc-uble 1923, being 1,275,31-1.  Canada  Needs Imports  Seems    to    be    Necessary   for    Well  Balanced Industrial System  Those who are rejoicing over the  marked decline in Imports are bound  to have a few second thoughts  through the equally marked decline  in customs revenue. 'During the last  seven months this has fallen off to  the extent of nearly $9,400,000. The  truth is that Canada must have a  strong flow of imports. If she It^ to  have a well balanced industrial system. It Is also a matter of record  that this country is most prosperous  when it imports heavily.���������Ottawa  Correspondence, thp Monetary Times.
