B.-Henderson and Mr. Frank  Staples, of Erickson, who appeased iii  person yesterday afternoon.  "What they seek is that the government, through the Department of Lands,  accede to a plan in hand by them under  which they wouid-proceed with the reclamation of the area in units, and as the  dyking was completed with respect to  these units a Crown grant of the. area  ?shQu]d pass from the government to the  reclaimers.  "The,Government heard the representations and promised to. go into the matter 5 sad acquaint the applicants with ita  decision .at as early a date as passible.  "The proposition which Dr. Henderson  and Mr. Staples have in hand is one that  heen before the previous   Government  NOW IS THE TIME  to Place Your Orders  since the year 1925. There is an area of  someteing like ���������,000 acres altogether  that is capable of being reclaimed. The  idea of the applicants is to do it in units,  starting with one of about fifty-six acres.  "The proposition which the former  Minister of Lands, Mr. - T, D. Patullo,  made to theasg they say, was that as soon  sb $uey dyked the area the Crown grant  would issue to them by the Government  for the first, unit. They could then-  proceed with the succeeding, units, and  would be treated in the same way with  respect to them.  "There is in conjunction with the proposition an Indian reserve, covering a part  of the land, and the Dominion Government has to be dealt with in that - connection to secure the right to the land?  so held. * *   -  "Dr. Henderson describesthe land as  very rich. On the United States side of  the line, where there is a large .area so  redeemed, and where the land is very  .simUiar, there has been a weeat crop of  about fifty-one bushels to the acre taken  off it this year. It is being utilized there  or the growing of field crops and a  speciality appears to have been made in  in tne production of seed peas on this  land. r  "In addition to the Indian lands there  is also the necessity of dealing with the  Joint International Commission representative of the governments,;of Canada  and the.TJnited States ~to satisfy that  body that no harm would be done residents on the other side of the international line."

In the short time at his disposal Mr.  Whimster went into the matter thor-  cugjuiy, assuring that the Associated was  just as anxious as the orchardist to move  every-apple possible, but that regulations  made by the committee of direction made  a bigger movement impossible. In reply  to questions he assured that utilizing of  culls for cider manufacture had not worked out satisfactorily.

" Brltiah Columbia Friift Growora' ^"  Association TITE   REVIEW. "-CRESTON,   B.    ���������.  Peace On Eartlu Goodwill Toward Wtan  ���������Interdependence,'* fa monthly review published by tho League of Nations  Society, in Canada, has rendered a real service to Canada, and incidentally  to the cause ojCywcortd peace, byfprlnWngiit fits current Issue the complete  text of the niagn-ficently inspif'ng speech delivered by the Rt;. Hon. J.  Ramsay MacDonald; at the Mate d������*as^ of  Canada, in the House of Commons at Ottawa. Mr. MacDonald's fine menage  to the Canadian people, containing such a sincere and impassioned plea for  International understanding and a wll to peace, was listened to over, the  radio by hundreds of thousands of people in this country-and theUnited  States. That national service is now strengthened by the rep^t of the full  text of Mr. MacDonald's speech, thus enabling1 people to read thi3 message  aga'n and ponder over it at their leisure.  This same issue of "Interdependence," which, by the way, is distributed  to members of the League of Nations Society throughout Canada, or can be  had for the trifling subscription price of one dollar a year, also contains the  text of the address given by Roch Pfnard, the 18-year-old Quebec boy, who  won the International Oratorical Contest, held at Washington, D.C., before  President Hoover, in October last. T&e subject of Rochy Pinard's address was  "Canada Among the Nations," and, like Premier MacDonald's speech, is one  well worthy of the consideration of the people of this country. It vwill intensify a Canadian's pride in, and love for his Dominion. Equally Important, and  essential to. that pride and love, it will further impress upon all readers the  absolute necessity for the cultivation of understanding and goodwill among  all classes of the Canadian population, based on knowledge, wh'ch alone can  render ineffect've those.periodical appeals to passion and prejudice through  which designing persons seek to sway the emotions of, our people. Mutual  understanding, mutual goodwill, mutual appreciation of each other's good  qualities, must exist as the basis of peace and cordliarty of relations among  the various races which make up Canada's cosmopolitan population.  Domestic peace in Canada, it is hardly necessary to. say, is the first  requirement if this Dominion is to successfully play the role of peace  protagon"st among all the nations, and an effect've menaber of the League of  Nations. From the inception of the League of Nat'ons, Canada has been one  of its^most influential members. The influence of this Domin'on in the  councils of the nations is far greater than its population aud wealth and  world power would accord to it. That influence radiates from the successes  already achieved by Canada in solving for itself some of the most vexatious  p-oblems now troubling older countries. That influence can be retained and  further extended to the extent only that Canadians themselves put into  every day practice those rules of conduct which the maintenance of peace  among all nations demands shall be observed.  Canada stands for world peace. This fact is-recognized by all nations. It  is also recogn'zed that as a people we have no ulterior motives in cur  membership in the League of Nations; that our presence there is solely from  a desire to serve others and further the cause of international goodwill and  world peace. As a people we unhesitatingly and uncomplainingly bore our  burden when an unwelcome war was forced upon mankind. We gave in  unstinted measure, and we are paying our own bills without asking help  from anybody. This is recognized and appreciated by other nations, and our  influence is correspondingly great. So, too, is our responsibility. We must,  therefore, first of "all be true to ourselves and to those ideals we advocate  for adoption by all other peoples and nations.  Finally, "Interdependence" notes with satisfaction the offer of Premier  Mackenzie King to.provide su'table copies of the Briand-Kellogg pact outlawing war to Provincial Departments of Education which will undertake to  distribute them to the schools, and to^fcburches which will give it a place in  their edifices. Unquestionably the future peace of the world depends on the  determination in the minds of the people, consequently through, the schools  and churches can the jiext generation be best reached. The pact, to which  Canada's signature is attached, outlawing War as an instrument of national  policy, should have a place on the walls of every church and school through-;  out this broad Dominion. It is a message of "Peace on earth, goodwill  toward men."  General Conditions  Fundamentally Sound  Sir CharSes Gordon, president* at  Annual Meeting of, -Bank of BIon-\  treal, Draws Attention f. to 43reat  Strides  'Made  by Canada  During  2tecentfXea.ru, " " ������������������.**.  Making .Survey For  Gibraltar Tunnel  \  n*.  Congratulates Winner  Herman Trelle Ih Pleased That Red  Spring Reward Wheat Takes  Highest Honors  "Nobody is more pleased than I am  over the fact that Joseph Smith; of  Wolf Creek, Alberta, has won the  world's wheat championship at Chicago," declared Herman Trelle, of  Wembley, Peace River, former holder  of the championship. 'T am particularly pleased that Red Spring Reward  was the winning whSat.'  It was recalled by Mr. Trelle that  the district where the championship  Wheat was grown was not considered  previously as a part'cularly good  wheat country. The success atta'ned  by Mr. Smith, he added, showed that  varieties of gran can be adapted for  any conditions in Alberta and are  bound to prove successful if the experiments are made by persons with  the qualifications of the 1020 champion.  Smothering Spells  Couldn't  Walk  Far  Gasped   For  Breath  Mrs. T. W. Roth, Kelowna, 13.C,  writes:���������"For over a year I was  troubled with smothering spells, and  it was Impossible for mo to walk,  even a short distance, on. account of  having to ga3p for breath.  ���������' A friend told mo to try  Clothing and Safety  Industrial      Institutions      Enforcing  Rules Against  Ragged  Worlc  Suits  Workmen on the*'Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railroad will henceforth wear form-fitting clothing.  There will be no more ragged sleeves,  dangling tatters on shirts, or flapping  shoe soles'. The matter of neatness  enters into the dec'sion to enforce  these regulations, but the greater factor is that of safety.  It is only within the last few years  that those in charge of industry have  come to a full realization of the danger that lies in loose and ragged  clothing Men working about moving  machinery are in constant peril, if  anything is-dangling from their clothing which is likely to become caught  ih a belt or flywheel. The constantly  increasing number of accidents from  this cause finally taught its lesson,  and moro and more factories and  other*" industrial institutions arc enforcing rules of safe dressing.  As a matter of fact, a large part of  safety in industry has to do with  clothlncr.  Sir Charles Gordon's presidential  address at the annual meeting of the  Bank of Montreal will exert a. far-  reaching influence upon economic  conditions ^n Canada.  Reviewing the business situation in  Canada, Sir Charles referred to the  unbroken expansion of the first ten  months of the vear and extending  back over a five-year period, the  most marked advance being in th������  field-of mining, and he said that  Canadian activity was such that the  Canadian banks took no special  advantage of the high rates offered in  New York; their money was  employed. in the Dominion "and  "every legitimate need of this country  "was taken care of at much lower  "rates than prevailed in the United  "States.**  There is good ground for general  business confidence in Sir-Charles  Gordon's statement that no inflation  is apparent in any of the basic corn-  mod ties of Canadian commerce. He  spoke frankly of such unfavorable influences as the reduction in the crop  and its slow movement, and the  collapse of stock -'market** prices.  On the other hand, mining and Industrial development in the West, and  branch-line railway construction, are  beneficial Influences; bu'.ld'ng has  been at its peak; markets are being  found for new developments of hydroelectric power, and while immigration  shows a decline there is also a reduction in the loss through emigration.  Gonrng. to the trade situation in  Canada, S:r Charles said in part:  ^Fundamental conditions are sound,  and there -is no reason for apprehension as to the ultimate future of  Canada."  General Manager's Address  Mr. H. B. Mackenzie.the general  manager, surveyed the bank's operations, of the past year and. made fa  pregnant .diagnosis of acuta! economic  conditions.  Mr. Mackenzie's analysis of the  salient features of the balance sheet  is not only? convincing of a healthy  growth in the volume of the bank's  business, and of its strong liquid  position, butf it is testimony also of a  determination to continue the sane,  sound and energetic management  that is traditional of the institution.  "Our ctistomers in all lines of pro-  eduction and commerce," he said,  "Have,, as always, been our chief care,  "and their rieeds have heen fully  "suppl'ed; buj we have jcecently been  "declining numerous application's,  "large" and small, for loans against  "good? collateral but to he used for  "other than business purposes, gener-  ,"allyythe purchase of securities.  "These, applications had become so  "numerous that they threatened to  "encroach upon the money needed to  "finance the country's business."  There is in the proceedings at the  Bank of Montreal meet'ng abundant  proof that credit is sound. "Business,"  Mr. Mackenzie sa*d,: "will be some-  "what quieter while we are getting  "back to realities, but the realities in  "both countries-^-Canada and the  "United States���������afford firm basis for  "a healthy optimism."  Work     Likely     To     Involve   Large  Political As Well As Engineering  P 1 r -'  ���������, Features  The worfie of examining the roclc  rata:of the Straits of Gibraltar foe  a tunnel between Europe and Africa  Is under way, but while the attention  of the world is focused on Its structural problems, tho tunnel also has  involved political and engineering features.  During the World War the captain  general at Cadiz, who now Is Premier  Primo de Rivers, made a speech suggesting that Spain, join the_ war on  the side of the allies and that In return for this England should give Gibraltar back to Spain. The captain  fully * general lost his position for making  this speech as an official. This was  Prim������ de Rivera's first political  speech.  When Primo de Rivera became dictator In 1923, no one remembered the  ���������      rAMO%J___3km     &*j^  YCAftS  Commander Byrd Defended  British JESxplorers Cannot Understand  Reported Charges Of Norewgian  Airman  British explorers came to the defence of Commander Richard E. Byrd,  against the reported charges of Major  Tryggve Gran, Norwegian .airman and  explorer who was a member of the  "Scott Antarctic expedition.  Major Gran was quoted in a  action of the former captain general Copenhagen despatch to * the Daly  at Cadiz.

A retrenchemnt programs-has been  announced for Spain, and it is  doubted that It would spend money  on the tunnel for years. It is not  expected that England would part  with Gibraltar, but if the tunnel leads  to the reopening of negotiations by  which Spain -would regain possession  on the basis of a lease for 100 or 500  years, possibly with a renewal option,  there would be great rejoicing at  Madfrid. ���������������������������������������������������������������  Miller's Worm powders will clear           the^stomach.and bowels of worms, so j Expedition of 1898-99 said  that the child will no more be trou- * *���������"*���������*"=������*������v" *"* *0iro as������ aa-w  bled by their ravages.

A Record For Safety ������  Big SQasterra Concern Operates Plant  For Two Consecutive Years Without Lost-Time Accident  The great campaign for the pre-  To Cut Air Mail Schedule  Feasibility Of Pick-TJp Device Proved  By Tests  An air mail pick-up device, capable  of receiving   and    discharging:    mail  sacks while an airplane    is    in   full  fi gilt, may cut existing airmail schedules fifteen minutes to an hour, according to the American Air Trans-,  port   Association,   which   says   that  tests of   the   device   already   made,  promise its future adoption on many  of the country's twenty-four air mail  routes.  The tests being made at Youngs-  ���������town, O., have proved the feasibility  of catch'ng a small bag of mail as  it swings on the end of a 75 foot cable  attached to a 'plane ln full flight. The  device  consist   of  a  V-shaped  trap,  built in the ground. As the mail bag  from the "plane is caught in the trap,  the device automat cally attaches another bag, which is hauled up into the  ���������plane. Sim'lar tests are being carried  out in the receiving and discharging  of mail at sea, on the S.S. Leviathan.  The theory wh'ch   postal   officials,  a'.r mail operators and the inventor  are working on, is that an air mail  'plane can   leave   an   airport, swoop  down on the pick-up device, haul the  mall, to a similar device near the post  office in the c'ty at the othor end of  the line, and then go on to that city's  airport.  guarding of human life that is being  carried on by energet'c organizations  and the.press of the country has  many tangible results that are decidedly encouraging to the sponsors of  the safety movement.  Last week one of the large industrial  concerns of Canada celebrated  a full year of freedom from lost-time  accidents,   hy   giving   a  banquet   to  their more than 400 employees. This  company, Jthe Canadian National Carbon  Company, Lisa'ted, whose head  oSSce and plant is located in Toronto,  has devoted a great deal of t'me to  educating their employees to the importance of workings' safely, and the  Safety Committee is constantly devising guards for the machines, re-arranging Ume-tabiea of work'ng hours  and directing the process of manufacture so that each employee can work  to the^imt of his or her ability with  the knowledge that they    are   fsafe  from accidents that might cause loss  of time and injury and reduce their  earn'ng capacity.  To make safety more impressive,  the Union Carbide & Carbon Corporation presents to each plant which op-  ei**aytes for a full year without a lost-  t me accident a handsome bronze  shield. For each succeeding year  that the record is maintained a  bronze bar is added to the sheld. It  was' to celebrate the second ^ear in  which this Canadian plant operated  without a lost-time accident and  earned the bronze bar that the Company ygave their employees the bah-  quet in the handsome, completely  equipped cafeteria which is a part of  the plant.  Besides the hundreds of employees  who attended the banquet, a number  of d'stinguished guests were present  and  addressed the  gathering. These  included   Mr.   R.    B.    Morley,    general    manager,    Ontario    Industrial  Accident Prevention .Association; Mr.  P. Moran, head of Industrial Service  Department, National Carbon Industrial Works, Niagara Palls, N.Y.; Mr.  James    Moran,    general    : manager,  Dominion Oxygen Company, Limited,  Toronto; Mr. W.

He marries  Molly Winton, a ballad singer, and  *wins fame as a composer of popular  Qsongs. When their baby, Junior, is  ���������about two years old, Molly elopes  with John Perry, Al's best friend. She  ^nd Perry take the child Al adores  aand sail for France. Al, broken by  the loss, becomes a derelict. Months-  later he drifts into Blackie's place at  ���������night, -where Grace Farrel, who" stili  r loves h'm, shames him into the promise to stage a come-back. They leave  the club together shortly after dawn,  but as they reach the street Al staggers.  X care about your clothes or where  you live, or anything like that. I just  care,about you."  There was no mistaking the look  In Grace's^ eyes���������Al real zed at last  that she loved him. Yet he marvelled at it ��������� how could she love  a down-and- outer like him? He  felt a rapid throb under his.dilapidated vest, an emotion he had not known  for a long time.. lie wanted to put  his arms about her and tell hei" how  much she.meant to him, but he held  back. This was neither the time nor  the place.  -"Before you go home,' suggested  Grace, "walk over to the Square with  rue. I live near there. We can sit on a  bench and talk for a while. It will be  good for you."  Al nodded. Presently they emerged  from the canyons of streets to the  wide .green expanse of Washington  Square.  "See how beautiful it is," said  Grace. "I thought it would make you  feel better. The leaves are turning  red and yellow. And see how n-'ce the  green buses look pass'Eg under the  trees. Here, we'll try this bench."  Al sat down and relaxed, his-eyes  half^closed. The autumnal morning-  sunlight slanted down from between  two skyscrapers, spreading fan-shape  across the level expanse and lighting*  the white arch. Italian' slum children  played on the south side, while in the  northern part of the Square the children of the rich toddled about, udner  the watchful eyes of nurses.  "Vbxx say^ you live near here?" Al  asked finally.  "Yes, just around the corner on  Waverley Place.     I have a. room."  "Oh yes." Some hint of Grace's  rather bleak .and lonely life was borne  home to Al in that one sentence^-'T  CAKES aiul PUDDINGS  The most .seasonable offerings for  your family - or guests.

Tell  Blackie I'm coming over to try out  with h's show if he'll give m.6 a job."  Al was walking away, with Grace  staring after him. He strode along  briskly now and when he reached the,  edge df the Square he turned to wave  good-bye to the Intent little figure.  For a moment Grace waited after he  had disappeared, then she turned the  other way toward her own home.  Passers-by who saw her face knew  that one girl had found happiness.-  Al had over-estimated his strength  in keep'ng up that rapid nace. He  maintained It until he reached y his  hotel bedroom, then he sat down on  the side of tUe bed, verging on physi1-  cal collapse. The room's dinglness and  the feeling communicated of tho llf/s  ho had been loading, brought a sudden wave of depression. But he  fought it off, rose and began pacing  up and down.  "I won't be licked," he told himself  sharply. "Throw that littlo girl down  after all she's done for me���������never!"  He quickly "opened a bureau drawer,'  took out an old sock and drow forth  a roll of bills. The bills were quickly ntuffed Into hia coat pocket, then  he ran from the room na if escaping:  from a scene of pestilence.   .     *>  An hour later ho entered a men's  haberdashery.

When she awoke it  -was afternoon. Soon she was hurrying  toward Blackie's club.   *  .... Now it was well on towad  midnight and Al had not appeared.
