GRAND FORKS   B. C, FRIDAY,' DECEMBER a, 1&20  "Tell me what you Know Is true:  I can guess as well as you."  $1.00 PER YEAR  Premier Oliver Won in  Victorea and in Delta.  Five Liberal Seats in  Vancouver and Three in  Victoria���������EntireGabinet  Has Been Returned  In the  provincial  election  Wednesday the Liberal government was returned to power,   but ..with  a  reduced majority.     Roughly    speaking,  the  government  will -have a  majority-of two or "three  in  the house, which is composed  of forty-seven members." Hon.  John   Oliver's  victory   is assured by the .fact that -among  the Independents elected   are  -several   who  are   practically  certain to vote with the  government.    Kenneth  Dnncan,  of Cowichan, while nominally  elected   on   the   independent  platform, is regarded virtually  a supporter   of  the   goyern-  . ment,   and   Mr.    Hanes    in  North-Vancouver is andther  who, it is assumed,  will  vote  with them on rhostvdccasions.  The Conservatives   have a  total of about fifteen seats or  nearly double the representation they enjoyed in   the  last  legislature.   If the Conservatives   were - able to   combine  with all independents, including Laborites and  Socialists,  they   might   give   the   Liberals  some anxious  times at  the next meeting of the house,  but  the  prospects   are   that  Premier Oliver will be able to  get along very-well   on  what  he has today.  The present situation is compa Table: to the condition which existed  in^tbe pre railway days of Sir Richard McBride, though the Liberal  margin is not quite so close today  as was the government's at that  time. In those days the Conservative chieftain often needed the deciding vole of tbe Socialist, J. H.  Hawthornthwaite, * to tide over a  difficult period. Mr. Hawthornthwaite, by the way, was defeated  on Wednesday, but the miners of  Newcastle remained true; to the  cause and elected another Socialist,  Sim Guthrie. A second Socialist  was successful at the polls in the  person of:'Thomas Uphill, former  mayor of Fernio. He is supposed to  have leanings which might induce  him to vote with Conservatives on  some occasions.  If it was a close tbiog throughout  the country ridings on  Wednesday,  and Victoria. They fulfilled almost  the fondest hopes of their supporter?, for tbey allowed only one of  the opposition in each city. A few  Liberals there were indeed who had  expected to win with the- entire six  in Vancouver, but they were exceptions, and the result was extremely  satisfactory, as it'was welcome news  to the leaders of the government  party in the two cities. Winning  also in Nanaimo and New Westminster, it would appear that the popular vote, taking the aggregate of ballots cast all over the province, was  strongly in favor of the Liberal.  In other words, the popular tide  was with them.'  The United Farmers scored nothing that looked like a success. F.W.  Laidman, of Ni.rtb Okanagad, had  the Liberals of that district badly  worried," but Dr. K C. Macdonald  was finally victorious. In Kamloops  too the- official farmer candidate  made an unsuccessful if valiant run  against a.Conservative and a Liberal. The last, mentioned, was E. W.  Anderson, member for Ihe riding in  the last house, and he was again at  the head of the poll.-  Comparative Standing of  arties in the.J>ext Mouse  WINTERING BEES  Large numbers of colonies of bees  are lost iu Canada every year  through lack of proper care and forethought. Serious losses are due to  want of timely and proper preparation. F. W. L. Sfadfin, Dominion  apiarist, in bulletin No. 43, second  series of'the Experimental Farms,  makes the statement that long and  cold, wintering in many parts of Canada is not so" hard on the bees as  might be imagined. In some respects, he says, -wintering" is easier  here than in mild countries, like  .England or in the southern States.  This is because the bees rest more  comfo'rtably during the winter in  Canada. One of the most important  things for good wintering is a popu-  lous: colony, consisting mainly of  young bees; another is an abundant  supply of wholesome stores in the  combs, and the third is adequate  protection from the cold.  This builetio.'entitled "Wintering Bees in Canada," is available at  the publications branch of the department of agriculture, Ottawa.  In describing the wintering of bees  in the cellar the temporature for the  cellar is given as about 42 deg. F.  Some precautions as regards the  spring management of bees are re  corded in ihe bulletin.  LIBERAL  Vancouver (5),  Victoria (3)    .  Cariboo  Gliilliwack|  Columbia  .

Liberal Meeting Next Wednesday Night  A meeting is called of all supporters ofthe Liberal party  at the committee rooms in R. Campbell's office on Wednesday night, the 8th inst. Important business will be brought  before the meeting.  Although, the opera house was  well filled at the Liberal rally on  Tuesday evening, it is a pity that  everywoman in the city could not  have heard the splendid address  made by Miss Ann Sutherland, barrister, of Vancouver. Had they been  there instead of at a playhouse,  they would have heard very good  reasons for suppoiting the Liberal  candidate.  Miss Sutherland gave the Liberal  government   credit   for giving the  women  of- British   Columbia    the  franchise.    They    had    repeatedly  asked the Bowser government for a  bill giving  them  the  franchise, but  Mr. Bowser had flatly refused them.  The only thing they could get from  him was a referendum. Miss Sutherland   eulogized   the Oliver government for the number and character  of the laws for tho welfare of women  and children it had passed since it  assumed power.' Four years ago'British Columbia was  tbe darkest spot  on this continent respecting the legal  status of woman and children. Now  the province led the  world in   this  respect,   having   even   passed New  Zealand,   which   has' always  been  foremost in this class of legislation.  Candidate   Henniger and  Chairman   Campbell   also   made     brief  speeches.

FINANCE MINISTER  HAS NEW POLICY  -.A dispatch- from Victoria says  that Hon. John Hart, minister of  finance, has announced his financial  pohcy.    Its features are:  1. The establishment of a capital  reserve fund for the province, in  which all moneys from the sale of  natural resources must be placed;  this capital fund never to be impaired, but loaned out on interest for  the development of the province.  2. The interest,income from the  capital reserve fund loans to be used  to reduce-taxation.   :  3. The establishment of a provincial bank, so that the provincial gov  ernment can accept deposits and  keop the money of the people of this  province here for the development  of this province, instead of having it  sent east by the big banks through  their branch system and loaned out  at high rates in Toronto, Montreal  and New York, while business men  here can not get credit.

A peculiar ciroumstance  connected with the polling was the  large number of spoiled ballots both  in this city and at Cascade. There  is a suspicion that some of these, at  least, were intentionally spoiled.-' -  The  women generally\exefcised '  their franchise for'the first:time in a  provincial election,  and the." result'  would indicate that, they had their,  choice of candidates as well   as the  men.

Phoenix   Gloucester   Totals   The campaign just closed was the  cleanest ever conducted in this district, due undoubtedly to the high  standing in the community of both  the'eandidate. A few silly stories  were started on election day, but  they were soon laid to rest.  The supporters of Mr.   Henniger  feel  confident  that   the final count  and   the  counting of the absentee  vote will  elect him.   It is said that  eight ballots were rejected as spoiled  at Cascade that   will be counted on  the recount.   Six  of these were for  Mr. Henniger and two for Mr.  Mc~  Kie. The only thing the matter with  the ballots is said to have been that '  the Ieg3 of tbe crosses  were a little  too long.  The contest was so close that ihe  loser, whoever he may be, should  take defeat very lightly.  220  292  ��������� 55  23  22  5  23  8  2  1  5  :   : -'5  2  329  334  Jo the Electors of   the   Grand  Forks Riding:  Allow me to take this opportunity of expressing my appreciation to all my friends who, believing in the cause,  supported me in my fight on Wednesday for what I considered the best interests of-Grand Forks and the province as  a whole.

Public sentiment is in a high state of fermenta  tion. There seems to-be a liberal 'mixture of  of.bolshevikism, sinnjfeinism?ahd other brands  of radicalism, with a few grains of common  sense, in the average citizen today.   If a person has worked hard all his life to accumulate  a little wealth, the man who  has idled away  his time imagines that������he has a perfect] tight  to half of it.   There never was a time in the  history  of  the   country  when-a^dollar was  worth less than it is today.

Tliat"M why  we said it was lucky, when really it was given  but scant justice.  "The fact that the Oliver government has  been able to secure a fresh mandate from the  people after; steering the province throughfour  years of very turbulent times, augurs well for  the future of the Liberal party as well as for  the honest administration of the province's  business.

Judging  from Wednesday's vote, even the North Fork,  the principal mining district tributary to our  city, seems to be pretty well satisfied with the  minister's policy. ���������  A considerable amount of social and religious interest lies behind the news that the  fez is going out of popular use in Turkey. For  a, hundred years it has been the characteristic  Turkish headdress,' and in the beginning was  itself a reform, for it took the place of the turban* and the Sultan Mahmud II, who introduced it, was called "the infidel sultan. "At  one stage of- the Mohammedan prayer the  true believer must touch his hose and forehead to the floor, and, since he-must keep his  head covered in the mosqne, a turban or a fez  or other brimless headgear is necessary. So  heartily do the Turks hate the head covering  of Europe that a common way to accuse a  Turk of infidelity to Islrm has been to nail a  hat to his door. * :  'sLet me have sleeping accommo  dations on the train to Ottawa," said  a man at Toronto to the man at the  window, who didn't seem at all con*  cerned whether the man took the  trip or stayed at home.  "For a single passenger?" he  finally said.  "No," replied the Tojonto man.  "I'm married, but I'm not taking  anybody .with me. A single, shelf  will do."  "Upper or lower?" he asked.  "What's the difference1!" inqnired  the prospective traveler.  "A difference of 50 cents," came  the answer.  "Our prices to Ottawa are 61.50  and $2.00."  "You must understand, of  course," explained the agent, "the  lower is higher than the upper. The  higher price is for the lower berth.  If you want it iower, you'll have to  go higher. We sell the upper tower  than the lower. It didn't used to be  so, but we found everybody wanted  the lower. In'; other words, the  higher the fewer."  "Whyi^do thay Jail" prefer the  lower?" broke in the man.  "On account of its convenience,"  replied the agent. "Most persons  don't like the upper, although it's  lower, on account of being higher,  and because when you occupy an  upper you have to get up to go to  bed, and then get down when you  get up. I would advise you to take  the lower, although it's higher than  the upper, for the reason I have  stated, that the upper is'lower than  the lower because it,is higher. You  can have the lower if you pay higher, but if you are willing to go  higher it will be lower."  Reductions in price expressed in percentages are not so oxpressiye as the percentages  of increase were two or three years ago. .The  coh'sumer who used-toreadaboutlOOand even  200 per cent increases in the price of certain  articles may not be deeply stirred by news of  a 50 per cent drop in cotton goods, or a 35  percent cut in woolens, but if he reflects a moment he will realize that a 50 per cent cut is  exactly the same as a-100 per cent advance.  What Shall I Give?  The wildebeest has the head of a buffalo,  the body of a horse and the legs "of an antelope. It is described as the speediest of African antelopes and as extremely savage.   But,  pled.   In  order to set the finances right the like'some other kinds of game, it has an in-  government had to adopt policies that  were  unpopular with the people.   Some of these  policies affected the taxpayers' pocketbboks  very  materially; and you  can not put your  hand into a man's pocketbook  without making an enemy of him.    Honest John, however,  saw a clear track ahead, and steered for his  goal, regardless of criticism.   His vision  was  good, and  the result has justified Ms judgment.  satiable curiosity, and a herd will approach a  camp or other unfamiliar object and gaze by  the hour.  The coming four years have every indication  of being altogether different from those we  have passed through. A period of prosperity,  tranquility and general development is shadowed on the eastern horizon. If this sign  comes true, the British Columbia government  may be relied upon to take advantage of it,  and when tho next general comes around it  will be returned by an increased majority.  A great deal has been said about majorities  A weak majority in a government is practically useless; a too strong majority is as much  of a hindrance as a benefit to a legislative  body, because under this condition both parties spend most of fheir time in "playing politics" rather than attending to the business of  the people. For this reason we should have  liked to see the opposition a little weaker in  tho new government.  It is only natural that the supporters of the  local Liberal candidate should feel disappointed at the outcome of Wednesdry's vote. Still,  if the final count should place him -'u the column with those "who also ran," fhey can console themselves, if there is any consolation to  be derived from this source, with the fact that  Farm Prosperity  It is stated that the deposits in 'the banks  in British  Columbia equal the deposts in all  the  banks   of Canada thirty years ago, and  that the deposits in the three prairie provinces  exceed the  total  deposits in all the banks of  the   Dominion   less  than   a generation ago.  From year to year the whole country takes an  acute interest in the western wheat crop, and  it is estimated that for this year at the pre-  vaiiing high prices the grain crops of the prairie provinces represent a total of $800,000,000  or possibly $1,000,000,000.   But we  seem   to  forget that there never has been a year since  the west was opened to settlement that stock,  dairy, and-field products in Ontario  have not  exceeded in value the total agricultural production of all the western provinces. Many of  us remember when farm mortgages were very  common   and   chattel mortgages not uncommon throughout this province, and  when  the  bulk of farmers purchased at the village stores  on credit. One is now told by mortgage companies that it is practically impossible to lend*  money on farm morgages in Ontario, while  chattel mortgages are as rare as wild pigeons  in settled country. Such money as is borrowed  by farmers is secured chiefly for purchase of  stock, for drainage, for more land, or for other  purposes which   increase   revenue  and   the  value of the holdings.   In all this one rejoices  while one doubts if farmers have been the victims of political neglect or excessive taxation,  ���������Sir John Willison.

COST  Is One  Consideration  m  VI  STUDENTS' RESIDENCES  (By Stephen Leacocfc)  I "When I was a  student at the  University of Toronto thirty years  ogo, I lived, from  ^art to finish,���������  in seventeen different boarding  houses. As far as  I am aware these  houses have not,  or not yet, been  marked with tablets. 3ut they are  all still to be found  in the vicinity of  of McCaut e-and  Darcy, and St  Patrick Streets.  Anyone -who  doubts the truth  of what I have to  say may go and  look at them.  I was not alone  In the nomadic  life that I led.  There were hun-  dr?ds of. us drift-  Ins about in this  fashion from one  melancholy habitation to another.  We lived as a rule  two or three in a  house,   sometimes    alone. We dined in STEPHEN LEACOCK,  the basement. "We   Canada's Great Hnmorist,'Professor of Political  always had beef, Economy at McGill tfaireisttjv      .  on the table.   They used to have a brand of soda biscuits in those days ^in  Toronto boarding houses that I have not seen eince,     They were betted  than dog biscuits but with not so much snap.   My contemporaries "ffffl all,  remember them.   A great many of the leading barristers and professional  men of Toronto Vere fed on them.  In the life we led we had practically no opportunities for association  on a large scale, no common rooms, no reading rooms, nothing. "Wo newel*  saw the magazines,���������personally I didn't even know, the names of thenfc  The only interchange of ideas we ever got was by going over to ihe- Caer  Howell Hotel on University Avenue and interchanging them there.  I mention these melancholy details not for their own sake but merely  to emphasize the point that when I speak of students' dormitories, and tfctf  larger life which they offer, I speak of what I know. ;  If we had had at Toronto, when I was a student, the &ndaf > donakj  tories and dormitory life that they have at Harvard, I don't think 1 would)  ever have graduated,   I'd have l&en there still.  The trouble Is that the Universities on our Continent are only jns$  waking up to-the idea of what a University should mean. ;. They weatyj  vej-y largely, instituted and organized with the idea that a university, was at  place where young men were sent to absorb the contents of books and to]  listpn to lectures in the classrooms1. The student was pictured as a joflldj  creature, burning what was called the "midnight oil." his wan face bentj  over his desk.. If you wanted to do something for him you gave htm aj  book; if you wanted to do something really large on his behalf yon gava  him a whold basketful of them. If you wanted to go still further and be aj  real benefactor to the College at large, you endowed a competitive scholar^  ship and set two or moro pallid students working themselves to death  to get it  That, as I seo it, was about the idea and theory of the Canadian Universities as they used to be. In tho course of time and through tho plain'  teaching of circumstances, we have been getting away from that idea, Wd  are beginning to see that tho text book and the class room are but a pax*  of the student's life. If they arc taken by themselves, in undiluted doses,  thoy probably do more harm than good. They not only injure the students'  health but thoy impair his mind. True education cannot be achieved after;  this fashion, by Bhovolling in Information. Tho most that this can ever,  give is erudition and pedantry, never capacity and genuine acquirement.'  The typical product of it is the college pedant possessed of a stomach-full  of fact but with a mind tho size of a peanut and tho outlook of a child.  The real process of education consists (as tho derivation of the word,  implies) in bringing out of the mind tho inborn capacity that is in it). I  (think that .Horace said something of this sort before But thcro is no1  harm in saying It over again.  r4 Since the melancholy days of which I speak, I have had the experience,  of nearly a quarter of a century of post graduate work and of university,  iteachlng. It is a noble profession, and, with the continued aid of the,  Governors of McGlll University, I hope to have another quarter of a century.  of it at least boforo I hang up my mortar board and sink into the arms of  the trustees of the Carnegie Pension Fund. Dut as a college teacher I  have long since realized that tho most, that tho teacher, as such, can do,  for the student is a very limited matter. The real thing for the student  is the life and environment that surrounds him. All that he really learna|  he learns,!:in,a sense, by the active operation of his own intellect and not,  as the passive recipient of lectures. ��������� And for this active operation what  he needs most is tho continued and intimate contact with hip fellows.;  Students must live together and eat together, talk and smoke together..  Experience shows that that is how their minds really grow. And thcy^  must live together in a rational and comfortable way. They must eat in a  big dining room or hall, with oak beams across tho colling, and the stained  gloss in the windows and with a shield or tablet here and there upon tho wall,  to remind them between times of the men who went before them and left a  name worthy of the memory of tlio college. If a student is to get from his  College what it ought to give liirn, a college dormitory with tho life in  common that it brings, is his absolute right. A university that fallu to  give it to him is cheating him. _   __    A Guarantee   *  The publishers of The Family  Herald and Weekly Star of Montreal are doing the right thihg with  the public.

It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the company he keeps".  When you join the ranks of  the advertisers you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successful merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many large concerns  can you name in any large  city in the country? Name  them and you will notice  that all are big advertisers  and all are leaders in their  lines. Ask your friends to  name ihe most successful  merchants they know in the  big cities, and in each case  the name ot a great advertiser will be mentioned.  The same rule is true of  smaller cities and towns.  The successful merchants  are the advertisers. The  advertiser stamps himself as  one having confidence in  himself and his wares, as  one proud of his calling and  seeking publicity and. the  test of patronage.  vft*  ';.'  auks of  Aclvei*- News of the City  The Conservative meeting in the  ��������� Em press theatre on Monday night  was well attended.

Great   War.     The   work   was  ���������placed  In   the hands  of  a spocial  Commission consisting of Mr. Geo.  H.    Gooderham,    Chairman, Mr. G.  :Frank Beer, Mr. W. S. Davis, Mr. It.  H. Lush, Mr. M. C. Smith, Mr. T. W.  Jutten and Mr. H. Bertram.   On account of the relief feature the Commission decided  to  carry  the  work  on by day    labor.    Original    plans  called for a cement concrete roadway  elrteen feet in width but the minimum width was Increased to 18 feet  before laying of concrete was begun  and later increased to 24 feet on the  lire miles   nearest    Toronto.     The  minimum   width of sub-grade Is 26"  feet and earth shoulders have been  provided except in special inntancos  where broken stone has been added.  More than fifty bridges and culverts  have been replaced by modern reinforced concrete structures designed  to carry a 20-ton   road   roller  and  having a minimum  clear  width  of  roadway of.2-6 feet.      Four of the  larger reinforced concrete structures  are of the so called truss typo.   The  largest clear span is 120 feet, probably the maximum span for bridges  of this type on this- Continent.  The route followed was not prc-  rlously thfi one most travelled between Toronto and Hamilton. Part of  It was sandy and for that mason used  In bad weather but much of it was .  little more than a trail, the travelled 1  con-  portion being only ten or twelve feet I in any previous   year   since  in width. .

A traffic census taken just before  construction  was  begun  showed  a  total of 526 vehicles per day on the  most heavily travelled portion, including three motor trucks.   On the  busiest days now the traffic exceeds  8,000    vehicles, the average    being  about 3,000 and the average motor  ���������truck traffic about 400 per day.  The  road   Is   kept  open  throughout the  year in spite of rather severe snow  storms.    It  was  not  closed  for  a  single day during last winter.  Farmers living fifteen miles from  the Toronto markot   who   formerly  made throe trips by team per week  by being up early and late now leave  homo at eight in the morning are  homo   for    dinner and supper   aud  make 12  trips  per week  by motor  trucks   In   comfort.       Many  of  tho  farmers sell all of tholr market produce at their own gates to the motorist and some of them six miles off  the highway, haul it to the wayside  and community markets which have  been encouraged by tho Commission.  A conservative estimate based on  a partial investigation shows an increase in  land .values of 6 million  dollars since the highway was first  projected.       Excellent   homes    are  being  built  all   along  tho  road  ns  districts 30 miles out are nearer in  point of time than those 5 miles out  v/ero before the improvement.  The use of a comparatively high  priced surfacing, cement concrete,  has been Justified by very'low maintenance figures. Regardless of the  great increase in traflic and in the  cost of materials and labor, tho cost  per mile of maintenance on the concrete roadway was Iosb in 1919 than  red in the double tracking of tha  North Toronto Sub-division of tho  Canadian Pacific 'Railway between  Leaside and North Toronto, which  involved the replacement -of bridges  known as 0.9 and 1.8.  The bridges were constructed of reinforced concrete, and are a triumph  of railway construction work, Noi 0.9  being 386 feet long and 90 feet high,  carrying two tracks and No. 1.8 of  similar dimensions but a three-track  structure.     Tho length of tho individual spans and the details of their  construction  are   unprecedented  in  tho engineering world.    Previous to  this no    reinforced    concrete beam  with a length of more than about 25  feet had been attempted; the spans ot  theso    two C. P. It. structures  aro  each from 35 to 37 foot long.  The method employed in the erection of the reinforced concrete spans  Is a specially interesting feature of  the structures.   Each slab as a unit  weighed 66 tons, which was the limit  load that.could be handled by   tho  C. P. R. 100 ton standard wrecking  cranes.     The crane engaged handlod  no less than 110 slabs, each 55 tons  in wolght, or in all something- liko  6,000 tons, and   all this    was    dono  without a single    mishap to either  men or material.     Another remark-  ablo feature is that both structures  were built without interruption from  June, 1917, to July, 191S, which was  a shorter period    than would havo  been required   to   manufacture and  erect   similar   structures   in   stool.
