S16-5t District Registrar.  notice  - In thc daily press, dispatches under date of  Oct. lGlh, one from New York and one from  Montreal, arc of particular interest to the people  of Canada at this lime.   Heic thcy are:  "New York���������������������������Following the announcement:' yesterday  that a chain of grocery stores in this city had reduced  the retail price of sugar to 10 cents a pound, came information that a general reduction to this figure was likely  within a week or ten days. Both grocers and refiners  are inclined to attribute the decrease in sugar prices to  the frugality of t/hc housewives who buy In small quantities when the price is high. The American Sugar Refining Company and others said tliis custom was largely  responsible for the surplus of sugar they Had on hand.  Prices were  cut to  get  rid  of the surplus."  "Montreal���������������������������. So far as present conditions go in the J  Canadian sugar industry there is every Indication that  matters have come to a point where there is to be a  "showdown" which will settle the matter of price for  good. The big refineries here and in the maritime provinces are closed down, and it is stated that they, will  remain closed for an indefinite period or until the situation clears. Further, the refineries have refused to sell  sugar until they can do so at a profit."  . In these dispatches wc have illustrated the two  policies of the the sugar men: that of the United  Stales and lhat of Canada. The former, instead  of complaining of a surplus rid appealing to the  government to help them unload lhe surplus on  the people at a present-day proiil, take upon  themselves to unload at the best price obtainable  and give lhe people the benefit. In lhc Montreal  dispatch another picture is presented���������������������������that of a  pampered, protected bully, who is sore al being  crossed and starts to pout.  If thc sugar men of Canada demand a "showdown", let them have it. Gould the time foe more  opportune for thc Hon. Arthur Meighen to give  a clear indication of the Government's policy?  Is his government for the sugar combine or for  thc people?. The issue has been made clear, and  thcy have asked a "showdown." Why shouldn't  that answer be that if our refiners refuse to sell  on thc open market, with "the present rale of ex-.  change and tariff in their favor, then, in order  to protect the people every protective obstacle  in forcc against tlie importation of sugar from  any country should be removed, and our sugar  men who now have their back up could mellow  ������������������vhcn thcy feel disposed.        0  Canon Barnes has raised a storm of controversy  in British Church circles by bis sermon at Cardiff  during thc meeting of thc British Association, in  wliich he disputed "the truth of special creation as  described iii thc Genesis narratives. In ils report  of the sermon the London Times says thai Canon  Barnes gave various instances to show thc gradual acceptance oi' thc idea of evolution by Christian thinkers during the last generation, and emphasized the significance of the facl lhat, so far  as hc was aware, no bishop, no Nonconformist  divine, no scholar or man oi science of eminence  had come forward to deny explicitly that man is  descended from'1 the lower animals, or to assert  tliat thc Fall was a historical fact. Alluding to  lhc contention lhat a revolution in religious  thought was best made in silence, he urged that  modern conceptions of thc origin of the earth  and of man were now acccsiblc in popular form,  and that thc silence of Christian teachers with  regard to them Was responsible for the alienation  of thc younger educated men and women from  the Christian Churches. The aloofness of the  younger men "was an old story, and so long as the  younger women- remained within the churches  thc position was not desperate. But lhcy were  nmv tauaht in their .secular studies principles to  which Christian teachers paid no heed. These  younger educated women desired, not a substitute for Christianity, but that lhe clergy should  preach the old gospel in the light of the new  knowledge. Christian clergy could no longer  close their minds or sermons^ to the new ideas.  Thc closed mind would lead, sooner or later, to  the closed church.  It has taken a Gcrman chemist to discover tlie  secret of the diamond. A Berlin renorl says the  discovery was made in connection with the manufacture" of dynamite, and that many diamonds  of good size and quality have been procured by  thc process. The cost of making diamonds by  the Gcrman process is said to be high, but that  stones.can bc made at a cost 40 per cent lower  than the price at the diamond mines.  While thc Government at Ottawa is hearing  the pros and cons in the sugar case, would it not  bc well to remember that it will pay better today  than it ever did before to try to make prices suit  the people's pockets rather than suit the pockets  of the profiteer.

In the course of his remarks on the  motion. President Ian Mackenzie hit  the salient facts when he said: "For  the second time within a very short  period the government has shown  that it. is not acting on behalf of the  people, but rather in favor of the  Canadian Manufacturer's Association  and the big interests," declared he.  "Not satisfied with giving the railroads increased rates the government  now, by the sugar order of the Board  of Commerce, favors the refiners.

M ell is,    Deep  Alarmed at the storm of protest  Jand indignation-caused by its conduct  j in connection Avith the price of sugar,  , the Dominion cabinet has decided to  ] go back on its deal with the sugar  I speculators.  j It will, no doubt, be awkward explaining to the refiners just where  ! the scheme fell down. That task,  -;however, will ��������������������������� be much easier than  ! the one of making satisfactory ex-  j planation to the public. Things the  j public want to know are:  I (a) How much per pound did re-  | fillers pay for stocks on hand?  j (b) What is their net cost F. O. U.  ; cars ready for delivery- to wholesalers?  (c) What were the profits of the  different companies for the years  1915 to,, 1920?   .  I (d) Supposing existing stocks were  I sold at prevailing American prices,  ! what .would be the average net profit  iper. year for the five years "ending  j December, 1920?  ] Until these questions are answered  j the public will have no patience with  meaningless explanations.  ' The whole transaction is, a' fair  sample of "what-has been going on at  the Capital for.some time.

[Realising the importance of maintaining a really "Express" service,  if its name is still to be justified, the  Dominion Express Company, the  premier Express Company in Canada,  made arrangements to act as Passenger and Parcels Agents for. the  Aircraft Transport and Travel Limited on their London-Paris daily  jair service.  j It is thus possible for either passengers or parcels to be booked for  'conveyance by aeroplane to or from  London and, Paris through any of the  pominion Express Company's offices,.  in Europe, and these, in addition to  London are to be found in important .  cities such as Liverpool, Glasgow,  Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol and  Paris.  The advantages of this arrangement are many, for the Dominion  Express, holding as lt does the exclusive right of shipping Express  parcels over the entire C.P.R. system, as agents for the Aeroplane"  Service can ensure that an Express  package scheduled to catch a certain  ship actually "reached its dest'nation  in Canada in the shortest possible  space of time. As time is - money  nowadays, more than ever it was. it  is easy to realise what an important  'adjunct an Air Service is to an Express Company.  1 The time-table shows that only 2'4.  hours.is occupied on the journey to  or from London and Paris���������������������������urgent  letters are carried at 2 shillings and  6 pence per ounce over the ordinary  letter rate.  Parcels-for delivery in Paris on the  same day have to be handed in at tbe  London office of the Dominion Express Company.-62-65, Charing Cross,  London. S/W., before. 10.30 a.m. The  parcels rates range from Is. 6d. to 2s.  6d. per lb. according to quanfity.  while special rates are quoted for  large and regular consignments. The  single fare for passengers Is 1-5 guineas which includes a car -to convey the  passenger to HounsJow. the starting  point. The Dominion Express Com-,  pany's officials at Charing Cro'-s have  every reason to believe that a lars"a  proportion of Canadian visitors to  Europe this .year will take adyanlap-c  of the ease with which it Is now possible to book seats for a real riving  Jvisit to the Continent through their  joffice: In fact, If they so wish, a  imotor car can pick them up in Tra-  ifalgar Square, and .In under' throe  hours they can be walking along the  Champa Ely sees.  farm Acreage In p. C.  The total acreage under grain  cultivation in-3i*iiish Columbia  in 1919 amounted to 193,000  acres. The total yield of grain  of all descriptions was 0,420,000  bushels, a^ *^re far in excess  of ^T������������������l "8r^Tlie"jHBcfcxrgcr^u  hav amounted to 140,000 acres,  and the yield to 230,000 tons.  Thc acrchgc undfcr rootfc was  32,000 acres, and the vicld was  over 200,000 tons, of which 50  per ccnl was potatoes. The  amount of livestock in the province shows a small increase. An  estimate of the poultry reveals  an increase of 170,000 head of  all kinds.  Jobless   days  on  the   farm   are  as  scarce as bene without a cack'!e.  A spineless farmer never hobnobs  wit'h  a  weedless farm.  Now is the time to get  that Overlan4 4  A reduction of $140 has been made on the Willy Overland FJour. This  Avill be the price until July 1st next.  We have a few cars now on hand , and these we will sell at the old  price less $140. The difference in bu ying one of these cars and a car to  come-in later is the sum of $35 in fa vor of the customer. The $35 represents the difference in the freight.  You should see the Canadian-made Overland in action; understand its  exceptional riding qualities, its. stamina and its gasoline economy���������������������������the  car that made an ocean-to-ocen trip on 32.6 miles to the gallon, that won  the Scottish fuel-saving contest, that is getting Canadian owners up to 35  miles per gallon.
