"  Since this portion of the act  was passed and created such an  uproar from many municipalities in the province the government a I Victoria  concluded to  , dispense with llie services of  Solicitor McDiarmid. ' He' was  let out.  Solicitor McDiarmid is -now  making clear his. position in relation to the many objectionable  ' features of the tax levy act.^ In  order to do so he rehearses what  transpired between him and .the  Attorney-General's department  leading up to the passage of the  emergency, acl. In so doing Mr.  McDiarmid takes occasion' to  give much information on municipal law. in British Columbia,  in contrast with taxation methods in vogue elsewhere, information which hc is making an  effort to get into the hands of  the ratepayers of the province  through thc medium of a .very  ,rlu������������������ighty report to thc Union of  \ British Columbia Municipalities,  and thence through the munici-  ' pal councils of the province. His'  report was read at the last meeting of the local council. ' This  report is too lengthy to find  room in. its entirety in any" but  - tlie larger newspapers. Its. importance, however, should not  be overlooked. Recommendations arc made by Solicitor" Mc-  ������������������Diarmid-lhat should .bear 'fruit  - if adopted for the guidance-of  - municipalities within-the-province. :   ' . V  Solicitor   McDiarmid   claims  1hat "our municipal law hasjebm-  ^plctely broken down; that it fails  in many particulars to provide  either an efficient or economical  administration.      ,."       **  .  -  It is proposed by Solicitor McDiarmid -that "the "government  should appoint a local jjovern-  nient  board,   with   very  may  powers   of  supervision,   ft  is>  proposed that no bylaw creating  a debt.blialj foe submitted to "the  ratepayers   withoutVtfoeir   pre-,  \ious sanction. Tfo������������������| u.ll disputes'  and  frictions  between  various  contiguous    municipalities    foe  brought before them; Mat in all  disputes between tfo������������������ municipalities and organized employees  'the,board should act as a board  of conciliation, and llwt in all  '-disputes with.public service corporations the board sbould foe iw  sole control.   This last is really  a public utility commission. The  experience of the past,year with  tin-   Brilish Columbia Electric  Railway' Company,   wbicb   is  practically the same as tfoe experience of Toronto and Montreal wilh their street railways, is  =-thal���������������������������where���������������������������the���������������������������public=-servicc  corporation is operating in two  or more municipalities, and each  municipality   deals    with    the  problem separately and on the  basis of its own local interests  only, cither the railway gains  advantages against the public interest, or some portion of the  public gains an adva^'t9ffe oyer  otlicr sections of the public, on  account  perhaps  of   tlie.  more  successful diplomacy on the part  ol their reeve or mayor.1 or perhaps his greater stubbornness.  In any case the problem is never  Ircaicd as a whole problem on  the part of the municipalities,  and   usually   divided   counsels  bring defeat  and disadvantage  lo   thai   section   of   the   public  using thc public utility.  "If a public utility commission  is useful, then thc undersigned  is of opinion that it will reach  its highest usefulness if the commissioners have lhe fullest possible knowledge of the needs ahd  local conditions of the various  municipalities, and for this reason, if it stood alone, would  combine Ihcse duties with thc  duties of supervision and inspection and control of municipalities given to, the local, government board. There should hot  be a duplication of officers, not  only on the score of expense, but  on "the score of efficiency.  "If the government sees fit to  adopt the above recommendations of the undersigned then it  is submitted, the machinery is  and salaries for teachers, whvjrai.se lhc standard of the. per mated, the Canadian fuel con- j,iOWn across lhe river, and on  not amalgamate lhe school sonnel of, tlie persons seeking '{col w:<s disbanded on March 'Al Mondav and Tuosdav fires broke  boards and  municipal   councils election.M - jlasl.

Thc present system creates friction; the remedy  proposed would entirely eliminate the same.  "There are some disadvantages, which, however, would  appear to "the undersigned as  rather-political than as attaching to tbe system proposed.  "If such a system were brought  forward it'would meet with  criticism from two sources, (l)  very conservative, who dislike  change; (2) those who might  imagine=-tha N-< I isad va n la gc=lo-  themsclves -personally would  follow.  With the first class thc undersigned has little sympathy. The  argument of this class will be  that tlie trustees of thc school  board are really a higher standard of men than the municipal  councillors, and therefore education would suffer in Ihe hands'  of municipal councils. Thcrc is  perhaps too much truth in this,  Hist as there is perhaps too much  (ruth in the answer which this ij���������������������������n Convention, held at Medi-  argument always meets from.cine Hal last week, four rcsolu-  councillors, that trustees have '  too much so-called education lo  be decent business men; bul lhe  answer to this argument is thai  nothing which really matters for  tlie education of our children if  left to the council in which councillors of the average standard  can go wrong. Thc curriculum.  the qualifications and salaries of  inspectors and teachers. I lie  hours of school, are -mailers outside the scope of the. jurisdiction  proposed. Sanitary and board  of health regulations really lie  with thc council iioav. or wilh  the provincial health deparlmenl  jn the last analysis^ So thai  every thing which really counts  for education is given to the  education department and the  administration, purchase of supplies, buildings, elc-, come under  thc body which supplies the  funds.

His father  therefore. claimed that he had  been illegally, assessed for lhal  year and claimed thc refund ol*  the' amount of the laxes thus  illegally levied.. Consideration  of the claim was Postponed'.  .  Mr. M. A. Marley, manager of  the Okanagan Saw Mills.

Anti-trust suits against the great meat packing  firms of the United States were announced last  week by Attbrney-General Palmer, as the first  concrete development of the government's campaign to reduce the high cost of living. Armour,  Swift, Morris, Wilson and Cudaby, who havc  been pictured in the investigations of the Federal  Trade Commission and before Congressional  committees as a combination in control of food  products, are to be haled before the federal courts  bv special prosecutors."  I "All United States attorneys were instructed to  ! ferret out food hoarders and libel them under lhe  'federal law.  "This is the niost important business'bei ore lhe  country todav," ���������������������������announced the Attorney-General,  "and I propose to have the law enforcement machinery of the government sidetrack everything  to this job."  Another major development ol the day was llie  making public of the Federal Trade Commission's report oii the shoe industry. invesligation.  This report charged that the high price of shoes  resulted from excessive profits taken by every  factor in thc trade. Thc packers, tanners. innnu:.  facturers and retailers all shared in the blame.  Testifving before the Senate commillcc investigating living conditions in Ihe Districl of Columbia, Thomas E. Wilson. President of Wilson &  Co.. and cliarman of lhc Institute of American j  Meal Packers, declared lhat thc packers were nol  profiteering. The high cost of living, he told the  committee, was a world problem and nol local.  "The world is on a holiday, and people are  spending money like drunken sailors, without  producing," he added.  HOW   LIQUOR   INQUIRY   FELL   DOWN  THURSDAY. AUGUST 14. 1919  - WHEN   THAT   RRIDGE   WORK?  Three months or more ago the road engineers  of llie Okanagan on a visit to Knderby definitely  promised thai the incline log bridge over Cooke's  Creek. Mabel Lake Valley, was to bc-rcbuilt this  summer. Tlie promise was also given that the  wreck of a bridge at Enderby was to bc replaced  bv one of safety.  "The season of" 1919 is drawing to a close, and  neither of these definite promises have been carried out; nor has any.allempl heen made to carry  Ihem oul. New bridges at both these points are  badlv needed.0  Trallic over lhe Mabel Lake road this season  has been unusually heavy, and'these bridges are  nol really safe, 'fhe old corduroy bridges near  ifhi.icl. now wrecks' of what they used, to be���������������������������  and Ihev always were bad enough���������������������������are a disgrace  and a menace to trallic.

There is scarcely a  trunk road in llu--Okanagan today that has as  much hauling over il as the road lo Mabel Lake.

The announcement has been made in Victoria  that the Clement liquor inquiry will not be resumed. Early in the present year Mr. Muslice  Clement, of the British Columbia Supreme Court.  was commissioned by the provincial government  to make a full inquiry into the illegal importation of liquor into British Columbia, which had  been going on for some time and which came lo  light over the exposure of thc misconduct-of thc  former prohibition commissioner, W. C. Findlay.  Just when the Clement probe was gelling extremely interesting in the direction of indicating  some of the confederates of Findlay in his carload operations Chief Justice Hunter issued a writ  of prohibition, holding that the inquiry was illegal.  Attorney-General Farris promised to secure a special sitting of the Court of Appeals lo sit on the  Hunter dictum, biit on one excuse or another  nothing was done in this direction. The Court  of Appeal met in regular spring session in April  and finally handed down a judgment quashing  the Hunter injunction. Thc latter had served the  purpose, however, because the delay of several  months gave all and sundry lots of chance to  either destroy evidence or get out of the province.  After thc Court of Appeal had dealt with the  matter some of the prohibition leaders started lo  agitate for a resumption of thc Clement inquiry.  Their efforts failed to get-any response at Victoria. Attorney-General Farris wcnl away to  England a few'weeks ago and will bc away for  some time. Justice Clement has left for his summer vacation and Premier Oliver i.s credited with  saying that to continue the inquiry now would  serve'no good purpose. This view is generally  held. Findlay is serving two ycars ih the penitentiary and the liquor he imported illegally has  probablv been consumed long ago.���������������������������Toronto Saturday Night.  HIGH PWCES jn ENGLANP  - The anti-profiVcering agitation in-England has  had a dramatic sequel. On Tuesday of last week  the select committee of the House of Commons  appointed by the government started its enquiry  into excessive'prices, their cause and cure.  Food Controller Roberts gave evidence lo the  effect that no profiteering existed in controlled  foods, such as meats and milk, but the conclusion to foe drawn from his statements is that all  essential food for the working classes should be  controlled.  He, as a responsible minister, indicated the possibility of co-operation between British, Canadian  awl' other overseas governments to encourage  se|f-containment in tbe matter of supplies.  The committee was preparing to hear oilier  evidence on Wednesday, when Sir Auckland  Gcddes, president of the Board of Trade, swooped  down UPon the committee and in effect torpedoed  it when foe announced that-a-government bill will  foe introduced in the Commons immediately for  passage before Parliament rises ncxt week, to  establish "local tribunals"- representing trade  unions, co-operative societies, local trading associations and consumers, to hear complaints o[  "unreasonable "'profitl"'=by~rctailcrs. "        ~   ~  These tribunals will be set up in all localities  and will be empowered to impose fines up lo  $100. It is also proposed, said Sir Auckland. lo_  establish a central tribunal in the City of London  under a judicial head, where appeals may do  heard. This bodv will have powcr lo mllicl  prison sentences wherc the offences are proved lo  bc of a serious character.  WHV NOT  A  TELEPHONE  LINE?  vToo long havc the settlers of Mabel Lake Valley,  and thc lumber company and limber men operating there, waited for some action on Ihe par  of lhc government in response lo lhe repeated  pctilions which have been forwarded I" Ollawa  asking for the extension of the governmcnl long  distance telephone line from Enderby to Mnbc  I akc. The output from Mabel Lake Valley and  its great possibilities demand heller Irenlmenl  (hai? is given it bv either the provincial or nonunion authorities. Telephone connections with  Mabel Lake, with easy access to the line Irom  Trinity Valley, would mean the saving ol thousands of dollars every season in dealing with fire-  fighting alone-  BURNING UP MONEY  Much of this talk about the high cost of living  is needed.

Onc difficulty of the Plan, no matter how well  il i.s handled/is the question of financing the  manv farmers who have light crops this year and  who'will require the full use of every dollar to  assist in seeding next spring. It can scarcely be  expected that a final selllement will be made in  lime I'or seeding operations, and not knowing  what the balance is lo bc farmers cannot look lor  lhe same bank accommodation as thcy could  ri������������������hll'iillv expeel if able lo slate definitely the  amount 'coining lo Ihem from thc government  This lea lure onlv emphasizes thc need ot selling ihe initial pavment as high as possible.

The Control  Destruction of Weeds  By G. 13. B., Department of Agronomy, U. B. C.  Thc control anil destruction  of weeds is one of the most important problems on thc farm.  It is not wilhin the scope of a  short article to enumerate the  various dangers and ill effects  or the decrease ih yields and  profits which arc the inevitable  results where weeds arc allowed  lo run wild.

Those  especially fond of fishing usually  come to the Nipigon river which is  known far and wide tor its speckled  trout.  Tourists desiring to visit this  world famous river usually come on  tho Canadian Pacific Railway to the  village ot Nipigon, which is situated  on tho Nipigon River about three  miles from. Nipigon Day and sixty-  six miles east of Port Arthur. As  one steps off thc train at Nipigon  one sees the homes of all lhc inhabitants stretched along on cither  ������������������iide of the track. Besides the  homes of the villagers the tourist  would notice other buildings worth  mentioning. Ho would sec three  churches', a Hudson Bay store, another jfonoral merchandise store,  owned by William McKirdy and Sons,  two hotels, a restaurant ownet' by  Mr. Goodridge tind a school. The  stranger to tho village would likely  lollow a side-street to the river  and here he would find raffids in the  river.

Not  only is the place noted for its  beauty, but there are many places  of hisiori.f.il interest along the  liver iifar the -village.  About a enunle of miles down the  river Irom Nioiaon is a place known  ts lied RocH.

Foreigners, chiefly Finland ers,;  have bought"0 up farms in Nipigon'  township from the government.  They promise to clear aud settle-  upon thc land in return for the pulp  wood on their farms. On account  of the increase of population, tha  Hudson Bay company found it  necessary to build a larger store in  which they could keep on hand ������������������  large supply of groceries and merchandise. Now they have a. big  'store opposite the C. P. R. station on  the front street. It is of interest to  know that Mr. McDonald, 6ur deputy,  minister of game and fisheries, spe.ifc  a part of his early life in the employ of the Hudson Bay company at  Nipigon. I  The country about Nipigon Is one  of vast natural resources. There is  an immense area of forest froin  which the people gi:t pulp wood,  timber and rallioad ties. The wood  Is hauled in the winter time to tho  station to be loaded on cars or to the  water's edge to be floated In a raft)  in the spring to the pulp wood boatsF  in Nipigon Hay. Most of these boats  "belong to companies In the United  States. ;  There is much beautiful hard-  rock suitable for buildings in the'  neighborhood of Nipigon. The. rock  Is drilled out and sent to where It is'  required. Many homes in the Twin'  Cities have been built from rocki  talwn from near Nipigon. j  The waters in Nipigon township  teem with fish. There is a small,  fishim; station called Port McDiarmid on Orient bay from'  whero the fish is shipped in vast  quantities to all parts of the coun-;  try.

Tbese pictures were painted here years' ago by. the Indians.  They painted the " picture of the  devil there because they thought the  evil spirit lived near .by. Thc differ  paintings of thc canoes* was a sign  to othcr Indians showing what tribes  had passed  that  way.   .  The Indians living around Nipigon  belong to the Ogibway tribe. It  was the flshin the waters of the  river that first drew the Indians-to  thin epot. In 'early history when  the various tribes of thc Indians  were at war with each other, thc  Iroqiioln being the better warriors,  pursued the Ogibway up the Nipigon  Ilfver into Lake Superior. 'ihe  Ogibway managed to reach thc shore  in safety. They climbed a Bleep cliff  and bravely kept' tbe enemy on the  lower ground. The clever Iroquois  landed on an island in the lake and  there dug holes in the giound in  which they Intended lo hide and  await the return of the 'Ogibway.  However, the "Ogibway saw and  understood the plans of tlie1 cpu'el  Iroquois. By means of their .bows  they shot arrows into the pit-falls  on the island and forced thc Iroquois  to leave tbeir hiding place.  Nowadays Ihe Indians living in  and around Nipigon village live . s  the white people do. The government has granted certain areas of  land to .theni. ��������������������������� These areas are  known as reservations.

Mr. Best .'spoke on thc advisability of putting up a larger  building than was proposed.in  the resolution. The carrying out  of his proposition would entail  an additional expenditure of $-1,-  000. Mayor Wright, while in  favor of thc erection of a substantial firc hall, warned thc  delegation against the unnecessary increasing of the city's debenture debt. He also pointed  oul thai lhc proposed expenditure of $10,000 for fire protection entailed a new burden on  Ihe owners of agricultural land  within the cily limits who would  derive no benefit whatsoever  from it.  II was decided lo call another  public meeting for Monday next,  Aug. 18, in order lo give the  ratepayers an opportunity lo-  presenl lo the Council their  views on the subject.  An Eye to business  COLONIES'   INDEPENDENCE  Not To Be Feared, Is the Belief  of Viscount Milner, Secretary  of State tor the Colonies  Referring to the British commonwealth in an "address at Oxford somc days ago, Viscount  Milner, Secretary of State for  the Colonies, said J he did nol  share the fear that the independent positions of thej dominions,  India and other countries in the  League of Nations '-would tend  to disruption. If thcJcommonwealth went to "pieces the  strongest pillar, in/the league  would bc shattered/' he-declared.  We must always settle our domestic dillicultics 'among ourselves. The "British***'-commonwealth, had more to lose than  any other state by another war  and nothing to gain. To have  the full support of the Empire  our foreign policy must be  broad, simple and straightforward. ���������������������������-..���������������������������"''  Speaking of the color question  and the development of British  possessions. Lord Milner said it  was absurd to denounce this  policy us exploitation. FIc did  not say colonics and protectorates had not often been grossly  exploited by powers that possessed them or that the British  had not, in some cases,' exploited  their dependencies in the past,  but he did say, most emphatically, that their present policy  was directed in a vigorous manner to the prevention of such  abuses.  It was their duty to the inhabitants of these countries to make  belter use of flic natural resources, often immense anti almost complelely neglected) In  the process they inevitably enrich themselves, but if the material advantage derived from  their trusteeship was- unquestionable, was there not also the  moral side? He was proud to  think that, as a general rule,  men of the British race who had  been entrusted with power over  dependent races had used it well  and had striven to raise thc people entrusted to their charge.  The nation, as a whole, had  gained much from their experience and their example.

In Quebec the Chcesemak  ers' Agricultural Co-operative  Association markets all classes  of commercial livestock, while  the livestock associations handle  breeding stock. In thc provinces  further east co-operative marketing has been applied more  especially fo sheep and lambs.  It i.s fair to assume that at a  comparatively early date much  of the livestock in Canada will  be marketed by the farmers  themselves, who through the  system- will become familiar  with the .methods and principles  of marketing, and will thus be  encouraged to so improve and  linisli their animals as to reap  the lull value of their efforts."
