THE  CRESTON  REVIEW  Fair flyer's  lonJirsess  banished by  telephone  The problem of how to drive  away loneliness when spending  Christmas in a foreign land was  solved by Hon. Mrs. Victor  Bruce, British aviatrix. The  long-distance telephone was her  friend in need.  Fro i Grant's Pass, Oregon,  U.S.A., Mrs. Bruce called her  husband in London, England,  chatting with him for several  minutes.

LIMITED  THE CRESTON REVIEW  1930in Creston Village  As in the past the New Year's  Day issue of the Nelson Daily  News featured articles outlining  the year's developments in the f  Kootenay and Boundary country,  paying special attention to a  review of the year's activities in  all the incorporated centres contributed by the various mayors  in most cases. Reeve F. H.  Jackson has the following to say  of the year just closed at Creston:  In the year of 1930 the biennial  election of the board of conim.-  sioners of the village municipality  of Creston took place with a keen  contest and a particularly large-  poll, the new board elected consisted of Frank H. Jackson,  chairman; Dr. G. B. Henderson  and T. M. Edmondson. Miss  Effie   Arrowsmith  is  the village  issued every Friday at Creston, B.C.

Apart from the situation due  to the Doukhobor menace, the  outlook for central selling in the  scattered Kootenay communities is not altogether unfavorable.    Some     trouble    was  ."     *        ������       J      ��������� _lt_ __T"i J-.  aiiCaCi pa tecs in   L__e  *_.rescon  area  for the reason that  this  district  has always been apart from other  districts in the matter of selling.  In the co-operative, for _ instance,  the  Creston   growers   have,   for  geographical and  other considerations, had their own pool.    It is  only natural therefore that some  Creston growers  should be dubious   about   the   csntral , selling  plan.    It was  a  distinctly hopeful developement that 25 of them  voted   for   central   selling   after  hearing Mr.  Black.    If properly  handled,    it is  said,  more than  fifty per   cent,   of   the   Creston  growers will vote for the growers'  plan   when  the  secret  ballot is  tiken.   At the one meeting held  in the Kootenay attended wholly  by white growers, and where  the  question  of local  autonomy did  not enter, those present voted by  more than four to one for central  selling.    This   was   the   meetiug  held at   Harrop  in   the   Nelson  district.    So far as the  scattered  growers in thc Arrow Lake and  Kootenay districts are concerned  it is thought that the majority of  them can be induced to  vote  for  the  central   selling  plan,, but   a  good deal of missionary work will  have to be done if they are to  be  reached.    As I have already said,  this work cannot be left to  Mr,  Black to do.    After the  holidays  __* i _  C.1C..  The tax rate has remained unchanged at 12 mills. The taxable  land values have been assessed at  $169,402.60 and the taxable improvements at $252,597, making a total of $421,999.60, as  compared with the total pf  $399,835 for the year 1929.  Total revenue for 1930 was  $7,539,79, a decrease of about  $450 from last year, due to smaller receipts from the liquor board-  Expenditure, during 1930 has  amounted to $5,757.82. Of this  sum $3090 was expended on  streets and sidewalks and $735.33  on electric lighting. There are  38 street lights. A further installment was paid on account of  the purchase price of the Fair  association property.

Encouraged  by the success of these undertakings, the strawberry growing  area at Wynndel is now preparing a petition for the organisation  of an irrigated district.  The Goat Mountain Waterworks company entered into an  agreement with the East Creston  irrigation district whereby an  ample supply of water is being  supplied to the village from  Arrow creek through the works  of the irrigation district.  An organized effort  was  made  to   have a   hospital   established I  here, and Dr. Olivier of Blairmore  undertook the task of starting it.

Great as the inconsistency of all nations appears to be, the inconsistency,  in fact the blatant hypocrisy, of Soviet Russia stands out over and above  all other countries. Here is a republic, a people's government, founded as a  result of a revolt against the _t-ilit������r_stie g"Overn.-i_siiit o������ the lormer Czars,  preaching the doctrines of worLd brotherhood, j'et maintaining and rapidly  increasing the most powerful army in the world.  Recently one of the important illustrated papers in Berlin^ Germany,  presented pictorially the relative strengths of the armies of Europe and  the extent of their war equipment. It reveals the fact that the present  peace "Strength of the Russian armies'is 1,200,000 men, or almost double  that of the next largest European army, that of France with 650,700 men,  Italy coming third with about the same number; 638,300.  Russia, with its 1,200 000 able-bodied men withdrawn from productive  occupations, is. at the same time, short of man-power to carry cut its  ambitious five-year programme, and we find Fravada, the official organ of  the Communist Party, urging the recruiting of women" as one means of  solving the Soviet Union's grow'ng^labor problem. More than 2,000,000 additional workers are needed in 1931, says this ofneial Government organ, to  carry out huge projects of the five-year plan. After pointing out lihat six  million women are engaged in household duties in Russian cities, it advocates  securing the required labor from this source, while 1 200,000 men are kept-  "marking time" in a so-called peace-time army. What a travesty, what a  traged\r' "What denial of all the principles for which the Communist party  throughout the world, with its denunciations of capitalist governments supported by armies, professes to stand.  And how is this huge Russian army equipped? "With 600 heavy guns, or  200 more than Great Brita'n; 2,400 light guns, or more than any other  country in the world, and 700 more than Great Britain; 23.000 machine guns,  or 10,000 more than Great Britain; with 250 tanks, compared with 200 in  Great Britain; and 1.400 war aeroplanes, or only 147 less than Great  Britain, with its world-encircling empire to patrol and defend.  And whom has Russia to fear ? Her nearest and most powerful neighbor,  Germany, was disarmed by the Treaty of Versailles, left with an army of  only 100,000 men for the maintenance of peace at home, permitted to have  no heavy guns, only 2SS light guns, less than 2,000 machine guns, no war  aeroplanes, no tanks.  And because Communist Russia mainta'ns, and is increasing and"  strengthening its huge army, and conducts a persistent propaganda in other  countries against all forms of established government except their own, and  continues to preach a world revolution, the other nations of Europe feel they,  too, must remain armed to the teeth. The result is that Europe remains  an armed camp.  The Great War taught us that, removed though Canada may be- from  the Old World nations, we cannot be indifferent to the situation existing.  Should the scourge of war again sweep Europe, we, too, would be the  sufferers. It cannot be otherwise.  The greatest present guarantee of the maintenance of peace is to be  found in the League of Nations. , It has p-evented more than one outbreak since 1918. The real strength of the League of Nat'ens is to be found  in another league, the British Commonwealth of Nations. They are the backbone of the greater world league.  Maintenance of the League of Nations costs Canada approximately a  quarter of a million dollars a year. Some people think it costs us too much,  but what is a quarter of a million annually for ten mHlion people in comparison to the annual cost to them resulting from the Great War in national  debt, pensions to disabled men, soldiers' hospitalization, settlement  schemes, and sundry other expenses running into m'llions of dollars annually?  Every Canadian, therefore, should be an enthusiastic supporter of the  League of Nations. No vote of money by Parliament should bo more heartily  approved than tho vote to maintain the League. Not only so, but every  Canadian should bo a booster for tho League, and should exert his or her  personal influence t<_ the end that Canada will always bo found to be ono of.  the staunchost upholders of the League of Nations at all t'mes.  Coroner's Jury Brings In Verdict In  Connection With Oeath Of Capt.  Bun-Ice  Capt. E. J. A. Burke died from  starvation and exposure according to  a verdict returned by a coroner's  jury at White Horse, Yukon.

Wasson, and Joe Walsh, a prospector, on  December 10.  To its finding the coroner's jury  added a rider recommending that  in future 'planes in northern British Columbia should be equipped  with sufficient food in concentrated  form to last for a reasonable period  of time, a rifle and 50 rounds of ammunition, and snowshoes for each  member of the 'plane crew.

THE   RBVTEvy-.    CRESTOt.,  -TS.  \J*  BIG CORPORATION  TO BE CREATED  IU AID rAKllltCS  Regina., Sask.���������Before an interested  audience of fully 8,000 pepple here,  Premier Bennett delivered a message  off hope to the people of Western  Canada. Mr; Bennett's address was  mainly directed to the farmers off the  prairies. As a westerner himself, he  declared, he was keenly alive to their  problems and was determined to solve  them and at the same time promote  the national interests of Canada as  a whole.  He reviewed the activities of his  government since assuming office in  August, the steps taken to relieve unemployment, providing funds to speed  lip public works, the increased protec-  &on afforded the Canadian pnoducer  by the tariff revision, and the stand  taken by the government at the Imperial Conference.-  Financial difficulties of the farmers  of Canada wii! be met by the creation of a private corporation, in which  banks, transportation companies, industrial concerns, insurance and  mortgage companies wiil be shareholders, said Mr. Bennett.  The primary object of the proposed  Farm Finance Corporation is to assist farmers now engaged wholly or  Tar^eiv i������ the production of grain to  launch out into mixed farming.  "In this regard," said Mr. Ben-  ' sett, "the suggestion made a few  weeks "ago by Mr. E. W. Beatty,  president of the Canadian Pacific  Railway Company, is to be commended. A private organization hairing as. shareholders the transportation companies, banks, industrial  enterprises, insurance and mortgage' corporations with a reasonable  capital used as a revolving loan  fond, will meet the necessities of the  situation.  "A. class of business will be trans-  gage, and local supervision "will' ensure a minimum of risk. In the  XTnfted States where the loan capital was $9,000,000 the losses of a  similar organization over a considerable period pf time were but  $27,000."  The fact that the marketing of  wheat at present prices woiild still  leave many farmers in difficulties  called for the attention of the government, said the premier. The government was therefore go-fig to assist the provinces in providing relief.  "No citizen of this country," he  said, "must suffer for lack of food,  clothing, shelter or fuel. I would not  bave the wheat growers think it is  our desire or intention to grant  them more favorable treatment than  any other class in the community  will receive. We do not offer them  charity for they do not want charity. What we offer them is that  Bneasure of relief which the circumstances of the case so fully warrant." -  While fully alive to the immediate  difficulties, the Federal Government  was also occupied in finding permanent' markets for Canadian farm  products. These efforts were directed along three linos, protection of  the home market, extension of trade  Within the empire and revision of  most favored nation treaties with foreign countries.

"millions of dollars" tc  farmers if the -Crow's Nest basis of  grain rates are secured, If ocean  freight rates are placed "on a comparable basis with ocean rates at  Montreal/* and if a fair basis of  rates on general merchandise, such  as binder . twine, window glass, and  paint, from Churchill to all southern  Manitoba points is secured, says the  petition. But the U.F.M. recognizes  opposition. -  "Powerful financial interests, centred in the competitive ports ������f  Montreal, Quebec, Saint John and  Halifax" will oppose the west's demand for a low grain rate basis,  equal to the Crow's Nest rates, the  petition anticipates. Large shipping  firms at the Atlantic seaboard will  combat any move to effect low-  ocean rates from Churchill.  The farm body also will ask for  "substantial reduction in the pres-  prohibifcpry marine insurance  rate" from the Hudson Bay Port, of  5 per cent.���������"which means -approximately 5 cents per bushel on wheat."  The present insurance rate would  alone kill the successful operation  of the route, so far as any "financial  benefit to Manitoba and Saskatchewan farmers is" concerned, asserts  the petition.  "Maintenance / of this excessive  marine insurance rate and the maintenance of high ocean rates from  Churchili is the aim and object of  powerful transportation, financial  and manufacturing interests centred  in eastern Canada���������tlieir determination being to arrange through-  transportation rates on our export  farm products and our import farm  necessities, on such a high basis as  will equal the present cost off transportation via the ports of Montreal,  Saint John or Halifax."  Once the port of Churchill is  opened, the petition declares, it will  be "many years" before the freight  rates are changed.
