Arthur  Meighen,-minister of the interior, of  the soldier settlement bill, was one of  the features of last week's proceedings of the house of commons at  Ottawa.  Tne main features of the land  settlement bill were made effective  before parliament opened by order-  ��������� in-council at the request of the war  veterans. The bill introduced conforms to provision's of this order-iu-  council and adds some new features,  including machinery by which the  government will acquire land 'now  held privately or by corporations or  -by the government. It extends the  scope of the legislation passed in 1917  by which .Dominion lands within  thirteen miles of a railway were  made available for soldie r settle  ment, and it now provides f r the  purchase of , privately owned lands  in any province for re sale to eligi  hie soldier settlers. It also .enables  the soldier settlement board tocom-  pulsorily purchase lands which _are  held to be retarding agricultural development.  Those eligible ta take part in   the  benefits  of   the act are members of  the Canadian, impfrial   or   colonial  forces who served with an honorable  record in an actual theater of war.or  outside the country of enlistment, or  members of the C. E. F. in   Canada  only, who are in receipt of pensions  for injury occasioned   for  such  service.  The privileges are also extend  ed   to   widows of  such persons, for  the  .purchase   of   privately  owned  lands, in any province.    The soldier  settlement   board may   loan   up   to  $4500, repayable in 25   annual   instalments, with interest at  the  rate  of   5   per  cent amortized.    For the  be deemed to be; established when  the soldier settlement board has ga-  zeeted such estimate.  Within thirty days thereafter,each  owner of a block of land within such  settlement area shall file with the  board a return naming,the price at  which he is willing to sell and such  other information as may be required. Provision is made in case of  resistance for forcible possession.  The board may also arrange with  the government of any province for  acquiring or utilizing any crown or  other provincial lands in such province and settlement upon such lands  will be, as nearly,as possible, upon  the same terms and conditions as  those which are provided for with  respect to settlers to whom the board  shall sell lands acquired by it. The  bo/ard may acquire from the crown  Indian lands, which under the In  dian act may be validly released or  surrendered.  The solder grant will not be made  to any settler who has secured land  from the board by purchase, or 'has  secured an advance of money for  clearing of incumbrances or the improvement of any land; or is the  owner in whole or in part of agricultural laud of the value of $5000.  Conversely, the board may not sell  lands to settler who has- obtained a  soldier grant, or has secured ad-  vances of money for the clearing of  encumbrances on land owned by a  soldier or is the owner of agricul  tural lands which are considered an  average farm. -    Three Douks Are Committed for Trial for Leaving  Remains Exposed to  Public Gaze  LABOR SHORTAGE  REDUCES OUTPUT  to ������4.75 a day following an increase  purchase of  livestock,   implements,  in the price of  copper.    The rate of  A   report   from   Vancouver says  that the production of   the   Granby  Consolidated   Mining,   Smelting '&  Power   company's   propuction   for  April at the Anyox plant alone was  nearly l,000,0'.i0 pounds.   Although'  less  than   half   the   average,    this  quantity is   considered   satisfactory  when tbe handicaps suffered are considered. The chief of these is  a lack  of macbiue drillers in the  mines  of  Hidden Creek, the largest source  of  Grauby production.   A shortage  of  miners  has   been   experienced   in  other camps along  the  coast.    The  prevailing wages have been increased  Strange and'gruesome proceedings  appear to have taken place in. the  Doukhobor settlement up the North  Fork last week. Over this, tribe of  fanatics Peter Veregimand the Car  son colony have seemingly lost con  trol.      '  Their latest;freak belief is, to not  bury their dead, but to strip them  of all clothing and throw them on  the ground to rot, thus enriching the  soil whence they sprang. This dogma  ���������they carried out in practice last  week when Alex Lilosoft' shuffled of  this mortal coil. But instead of  throwing the body on the ground,in  their true orthodox way, they put  it in a rude uncovered box and placed  thebox in a crevice of a huge boulder  near Ii. Forrester's milk ranch. Had  the box stayed where it was placed  all might have gone well, and ages  might have rolled by without anyone being the .wiser. - But the wind  must have dislodged the box, thus  exposing ihe remains uf the late la  men ted to man and beast on the  king's highway.  ' It was quite a common thing in  my young days^ writes a survivor to  the London Chronicle, to go to the  village blacksmith for extractions.  His principal qualification -for the  job was a strong pair of pincers. His  "painless" system was probably not  unique. After gripping the offending tooth with the pincers he would  screw the long handles in a vice _o  that the patient could not move..  Then, putting a bar of iron in the  .fire until it was blazing hot, he  would dab it at the victim's nose.  He would, of course, violently draw  back, leaving the tooth behind. It  was all done very, quickly and  chverly.  EETING I  ClTT COUNCIL  Notice Is Given of  a Curfew Bylaw���������Salaries Are  .

In many places in southern On-  tarto there is usually one well  marked and rather short honey flow  during this period, and it is generally comparatively easy io prevent  swarming by 6imply expanding the  brood chamber, in advance of requirements, and giving good veotila  tion. A good practice is to let the  brood nest extend into the super,  and then, early in tbe "honey flow,  Both were   natur-1t0 confine the' queen   again   to   the  and so forth, the board may loan up  to $_000, repayable ..in four equal  annual instalments, beginning the  third year, with interest at the rate  of 5 per cent, but no iuterest will be  charged for tbe first two years. A  further sum of 81000 may be loaned  for permanent improvements, repayable in 25 pears at 5 per cent.  The bill also provides for agricultural training for those eligible soldiers who are uot ready to go immediately on tbe land,and for the payment of allowances for subsistence  for the" settler and his dependents  during the time of training. This  training may be at a training center,  specially equipped, or with specially  selected farmers. Instructors and  inspectors of the board vfill visit and  assist settlers who participate in the  benefits of tbe act.  With regard to compulsory   pur-  pay is advanced 25 cents for each  2 cents of advance in British Columbia, according to the Vancouver report.  FERNIE MINERS VOTE  FOR STRIKE  The miners of Fernie ballotted on  a general strike vote on Saturday to  ascertain the feeling of the miners  regarding the order issned by Direc"  tor of Coal Operotions \V. H. Ann-  strong, carrying a reduction iu wages  proportionate to the reduction in  hours of the men who formerly worked  ten aud eleven hours per day and now  put in only eight hours,  The result in Fernie was 3G5 for* a  strike and 167 against.  ally frightened, and Provincial Constable Stanfield was notified.  Mr. Staofidld went out to the settlement   and brought back with him  Bill Cherenko,   Paul   Sinbushi and  W'm. Llosoff, and placed them in the  provincial jail. These are the parties  who were given   a jail sentence last  year for burning a harness and raising Cain generally because they did  not believe in working the animals.  At   the   preliminary   hearing   be  fore Stipendiary  Magistrate  McCal.  lum   on    Friday   the   accusea\ were  committed for trial,    iu defense  ol  (.neir action they pleaueu  that   tney  bten in the habit ot "Ourying'' their  dead in this manner iu   Saskatchewan, and the authorities, they said,  had   never   interfered with   them.  They promised to bury their dead in  future,    aud   did   not    think   tney  should be punished for this offence.  The maximum penalty lor the crime j  of whi������h they are accused is said toj  be live years' imprisonment  iu   the'  penitentiary. j  Saturday Judge Brown made:  preparations to dispose of the case  at bpeedy trial in the country court.  But the prisoners had previously  received one sentence from the  judge, and so they elected a jury  trial at the assizes in June,  brood chamber by means ot a queen  excluder.  In the rest of Canada, and especially in places where there^is u pro  longed honey flow, or two honey  flows, the prevention of swarming is  less easy. The plan of finding,and  destroying tbe queen cells every  week throughout the swarming season is laborious aud uot always effective. A belter plan is to remove  tbe queeu at tbe "beginning of the  surplus honey flow and dtstroy all  queen-cells, except one, eight or  nine days later. In this way a new  queen is raised and she starts iaying  iu time U produce a large number of  young bees for the winter.  In a small apiary that can be  watched all day from the house, it  is often satisfactory to limit swarming to the prime swarm, aud to prevent the swarm from flying away by  the following simple method:  The queen's wings are clipped before the swanning season. When  the swarm is in the air, the hive is  moved away and a new hive, in  which the queen is put, is placed on  the old stand to receive the returning swarm. This operation weakens  the old colony to such an extent  that it rarely swarms again, but to  make sure, it is advisable to cut out  week  An adjourned session of the city  council was held on Wednesday evening.  Two letters, with newspaper clipping enclosures, dealing with the  Doukhobor agitation, were read from.  Ho'n. Martin Burrell. The clerk .was  instructed to acknowledge the receipt  of the letters and to ask Mr. Burrell  if the original agreement with the  Doukhobors gave them immunity  from military service and permitted  thern to settle in communities.

FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1919  The vulgar display of wealth by people  who have to borrow money to make it, is responsible for a great deal of unrest in society  at the present time. -'  An ingenuous or ingenious citizen" of Pennsylvania has brought a suit for damages that  includes, among other items, the following:  "One hundred and eight dollars and ninety  cants for loss of eggs by reason of defendant's  refusing to permit him to keep chickens."  Apparently the plantiff not only - wishes to  count his chickens before they are hatched,  but wishes to be paid for them as well.  People with but a single idea frequently go  insane over that trifling atom.  The men who are adapting war time inventions to the purposes of peace are at work in  many fields.

Microphones and geophones, which used  to reveal  the whereabouts of German "guns, will help to  find   imprisoned   miners.    Successful   experiments indicate that before long the radiophone,  which  enabled   men   on   the ground to communicate with men in aeroplanes, will be found  in the front yards of country houses. Even the  poison gases may serve some useful  purpose.  They have already been used in fighting insect  pests, but have proved too dangerous.  Mayor Ole Hanson, of Seattle, is needed  in Winnipeg now.  One hundred years ago the ingenious and  efficient wife of a New York blacksmith made  for her husband the first detachable collar, so  that she should not have to wash his shirt so  often as when shirt and collar were in one  piece. The Rev. Ebenezer Brown, minister  of the church that the blacksmith attended,  liked the idea so well that when he retired  frem the ministry ten years later he established  a small factory to make detachable collars.  Thus began an industry that in a century has  crown to tremendous size.  o  government in meeting! its. heavy after-the-war  responsibilities. . ;  It: would'be a mistake to think that because  war-savings stamp costs only $4 and a few cents  and a thrift stamp costs but 25 cents.that,  therefore, the war savings campaign does not  amount to much. In the United Kingdom  about $1,500,000,000 worth of war savings  certificates have been sold during the last  three years and the movement is being continued as a permanent peace effort. In the  United States over $1,100,000,000 worth of  war savings and thrift stamps have been sold  during the last seventeen months. So as  money raising efforts these campaigns are important. But perhaps the chief benefit is to be  seen in the creating of and entirely new class  of investors in government securities. At the  outbreak of war there were in Great Britain  only 34.5,000 holders of government securities;  now there are over 18,000,000 such. In the  United States the number has been increased  from. 300,000 to possibly between 25,000,000  and 30,000,000. This change has been brought  about through the national war bond and war  savings campaigns. At the outbreak of war  the number of people in this country who had  invested in Dominion government securities  numbered only a few thousand. Now they will  exceed one million. The war savings campaign  is adding thousands to this number because it  practically enabled anyone with $4 to buy a  Dominion government bond.  In Charge  The soldier who believed in camouflaging  unpleosant news in his letters home was scribbling a note to.his mother as he rested on his  way to the guardhouse surrounded by his  guards.  "Dear Mother," he wrote, "I'm quite well  and goiug strong. At present I'm in charge of  a squad of men."  His mother was delighted.

"Nobody at weddings ever gives the bridegroom away." "Of course not, you couldn't  find anybody that mean."  An Bwful Chance  Sandy McTavish was a highly skilled workman in a new airplane factory. It happened  one day that he was asked if he would care to  accompany the company's aviator on one of  his trial flights in a machine. Sandy, after  some hesitation, agreed to do so.  During thje flight the aviator asked how he  was enjoying the trip.  "To tell the truth," replied the Scot, "I wad  rather be on the ground."  "Tut, tut," replied the flying man. "I'm just  thinking of looping the loop."  "For heaven's sake don't dae that!" yelled  the now very serious McTavish. "I've some  siller in my vest pocket, an' I micht  lose  it."  All persons who buy war savings or thrift  stamps should seta -$50 Dominion government  bond as their objective. This may now be  had for $40 and a few cents, redeemable on  January 1, 1924, at $50. Such an objective  makes saving worth while. For one thing, it  will be a strong incentive to continued saving. Then it is very profitable, the rate being  41 per cent compounded half-yearly, which is  pracf'cally 5 per cent.    Tho purchase of a $50  Caller���������This poem was written by a lawyer.

Records will be granted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  joint residence, but each making necessary improvements on respective claims.  Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of ?300 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make Improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  $10 per acre, Including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record another pre-emption, if he requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory Improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  TJnsurveyed areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites:  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential and improvement conditions.  For grazing and  industrial purposes,  areas exceeding 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS ACT.
