This is comparable with  2,105,400 pounds in April. Un  official returns indicate that the coal  and coke situations are improving.  Tbe improvement in the coking de-  partmedt has been brought about by  an addition of coal from mines other  than of the Granby.. The mixture is  said to have resulted in a bsttes coke  product.    .  Mr. Moore, until recently identified with large operations in Arizona, has succeeded Mr. Sylvester  as general manager, and has re  moved his office from Vancouver to  the smelter at Anyox.

The Canada thistle   yields  nectar  from   which the   honey   is  of good  color and quality.  Willow herb, or fireweed   as it  is  commonly called, grows from two to  six   feet   in   height.    Its growth is  confined to regions where forest fires  have occurred. As a rule  it springs  up and come out in blossom the year  following the fira.   It blossoms from  first of July until   the latter part of  August -The flowers are  dark   pink  arranged    in     clusters.     generally  around a single stem, and as the sea  son   advances  the first bloom go to  seed, and as the  stalk   extends  upward   more   blossoms  appear,  and  buds. Blossoms and seed pods may  be seen on the same plant.  It is one  of the most  valuable  honey   plants  known, and gives some nector every  year.  The honey has a  fine   flavor,  is very sweet and some say that it is  slightly suggestive of spice.    Where  it grows in eastern   North   America  the noney is very clear, but for some  unknown reason the honey   from it  here in British Columbia is   consid-.  erably darker.  Smartweed, of which two varieties  are common in this part of the prov  ince, one variety having vine like  stalks and the other stouter stalks j jujy  that grow up fairly straight and  branch out. It blossoms during August and September. Tbe extracted  honey from t varies in color from a  light to a dark amber. Its flavor,  while not as good as clover, is not  poor. When it granulates   it   is   in  til late in the autumn.  There are many other plants in  this province that yield nectar and  a number of then), ikj doubt, yield  it very abundantly, but as the bee-*  keeping industry is in its infancy  here the possibilities of many of  these are unknown.  . This-paper was followed by a discussion of other nectar secreting  plants iu British Columbia, the fol  lowing, among others, being mentioned.  Asters���������Some honey in    the fall.  Goldenrod, of which there are two  varieties.    Oue blooms  all summer  and yields very   little  nectar.    The  other grows in August and September and yields considerable  Skunk Cabbage���������No honey.  Cottonwood Trees��������� No honey.  Raspbeny���������Great yielderof honey  At Hatzic the best honey is  yielded,;  from raspberries.   The bloom  is  so  constructed   that   it   holds  nectar,  otherwise   the   nectar     would     be  washed out by rain.  Cornsperry (?)���������Very small flower  The bees -work, it about July and  August and get coosideaable nectar  from it. It grows in boggy places,  and its stem is like the buttercup or  bladderwort.  -Oregon Grape���������This has a downward pointed flower, which is often  sought by the bees  Sweet Clover���������This is grown more  extensively in the interior   than   on  the lower mainland.   It is classed as  a   great   honey   plant In. some dis  tricts.  Cascar���������This plant is  scarce  but  is worked quite frequently'' by   bees.  Elderberry ��������� Light  green   leaf;  blooms about end of  May.    Honey  producing.  White Everlasting Flower���������Very  little nectar.  ���������Holly���������Yields some honey.  Ivy���������Blooms about end of July  with small greenish flower, from  which the bees sometimes get  honey.  English Ivy���������Also  bears   honey.  Oxeyed Daisy���������Very little  yield.  Labrador   Tea���������A   great    honey  producer.  Yields a  strong smelling  honey.  I ii teres ting" Address Delivered by the Organizer.

Cinada occupies arj .outfianding  position in regard to water power  wealth, not only will) respect to the  aggregate power at sites already de-  velaped and in usp, but even more  so to that awaiting development  The total of our potential load-'  water, 24 hour power is estimated  at some- 19,000,000 horsepower.  Although the greater amount of  power is produced in large and  efficient plant?, there are- many inefficient small plants. Each of these  plants, however, is valuable as a  producer of energy and, owing to  the number, the aggregate amount  of power they represent is consider  able; moreoyer, these smaller plants  are usually situated in the more  thickly populated area?; where  power is at a premium.  It is interesting to note how conditions in some of the small plants  can be improved st a relatively low  cost, as illustrated by thereconstruc  tion of.a small hydro-electric plant  of some 400 h.p., operating under a  head of 14 feet.  The original plant was   destroyed  by a washout,, and, in the design of  the new plant, all modern and  efficient practice and method   was   utilized.    The   new   plant   is showing  marked increase  in efficiency   over  the old, due   to   the increased efficiency of the units and of the method  of operation.  The plant has   carried  for   the  past   two   years more than  twice    the load   that   tbe old plant  normally handled and has   not   yet  experienced    tbe  shortage   of water  which formerly occurred   each   year  in   the   late   summer   and   winter  months.    The   results   at this plant  illustrate   what   reconstruction can  accomplish for small   plants operating wastefully,  either  through   an-  quated  equipment, leaky dams   or  other inefficient works.  MAYBE IMPORTANT  DISCI  It Is Claimed That a Toronto Doctor Has Found  a New Scrum for the  Cure of Cancer  1'hat. case? of genuine cancer have  been treated by a new serum di.~-  covi-n-d In- Dr Thomas G Glover,  of Toronto, seems to be well'Kslab  lislied, says the Vancouver Sun in  commenting on a recent news dis  patch from Toronto. The diagnosis  of the cases is vouched for by Dr.  Julian London, who������e position a?  medical superintendent of St.  Michael's hospital should make it  authoritative. The improvements!^  the patients under the treatment is  vouched for by the same authority  and by the patients themselves.  That there is lack of university  endorsation of the facts in Toronto  may be accounted for by the cir  cumstances that Dr. Glover has  worked out his theory and discovery  in his own laboratory and'in that of  a leadiug institution, in New York.  Always, "too, there . is the .deep-  rooted conservatism of institutions  of learning regarding new discoveries which is found not only in  medical colleges but in many others.  The public will be content to  leave the ethical and scientific argument between the doctors and the  institutions of learning if only Dr.  Glover's discovery proves efficacious  in the cure of that dread disease.  Results already published are at  leas.t encouraging and lead to tbe  hope that at last medical scieuce is  to give to tbe world relief from the  scourge of ���������malignant tumor."

If your  name is not on the voters' list next Thursday  night you'll be worse off than a Jersey-cow.  It is'universally admitted that there is now  a great scarcity of raw materials. The nation,  therefore which best guards its raw.materials  will make the greatost advances in production  and prosperity in the years, to come., It is  .legitimate that we' should import; factories  rather than export our raw materials, and desirable that we should have immigration into  Canada rather than emigration out of Canada,  [.ndustrial capital from abroad brings skilled  workmen, and skilled workmen and farmers  are the best classes that we can have in the  country. .-What is the alternative.to conservation of our natural resources and 'manufacture  of our raw materials to the last processes in  Canada? We are situated as is no other country in the world. We lie alongside a nation of  a hundred millions of people who speak the  same language and Have substantially the same  traditions, customs and institutions. In Europe  movement of population from one country to  another is obstructed by differences of language, of customs and of social conditions.  But in North America-men cross naturally  from Canada to the United States and, save  that they ohange their citizenship and political  relation, find the new surroundings very like  the old. Clearly, therefore, we must either  manufacture the raw material of Canada within the.country, thus employing labor, rearing  new communities, providing local markets for  merchants and producers, strengthening the  national structure, making the back of Canada  strong to bear its accumulating burden, or the  sons of Canada will follow these raw materials  out of the country, establish themselves in  American industrial centers, and moro and  more, from year to year, the national burden  will become heavier a'id the issue of the great  political experiment in which we are engaged  become more'difficult and uncertain. Every  sound economic and' national reason, therefore, demands that the raw materials of Canada should be manulactutvd in Canada, and  ihe Canadian people protected in the possession and control of their natural inheritance.  ���������Sir John Willi.son.  A telephone without a mouthpiece, which  an Englishman invented during the' war, has  helped to solved the problem of communicating in places where the ordinary telephone  could be used only with the greatest difficulty.  The transmitter and receiver of-the new instrument, or laryngophone, are placed against  the speaker's throat, and thevoice is carried  with surprising clearness direct from ^thc;  larynx. It is used by rescuers of entombed  miners and by pilots and observers xon aeroplanes.   . ��������� '  A Spartan trick nat:ye to Athens seems like  a contradiction in terms, but there is a laconic  directness in'the method employed by Athen  ian policemen to cure motorists of speeding  that is worthy to rank with the. heroic rules  of Spartan conduct. The policemen who are  stationed on the principal streets have planks  studded with long sharp nails, which they  drop in front of autom6"hiles that are approaching at what appears to be excessive  speed. If the driver is not driving too fast, he  can stop in time; if he is, his tires are punctured. It is a simple and effective way to control traffic. - .       -  ., It is understood that plans arc being" made  on the-coast to kill sea lions on a large scale  and use r.lieir skins as material for shoes: a  project that the fishermen 'of this province will  welcome, because a sea lion eats on an average fifty pounds of fish a day.
