TheLon^cst Transmission-  Line in Western Canada  . Has Been Gompleted  aad/Tested  The West Kootenay Power &  Light company's power line from  Greenwood to Copper mountain,  a distance of over-a hundred miles,  has been completed. Thi3"makes the  longest transmission line in western  Candada. The current '-was.���������turned  on this week and tested. It is cq.hi  prised of n single 110,000 volt line  of thr/H.'Frane construction. The  company, will operate this'iine at  G0,000 volts until such time as re  quiremerils demand going to a higher  voltage.  . At Greenwood this line is fed by  duplicate 00,000 volts transmu-suui  'lines from that point io Bonnington  Falls, at.which point the generating  stations are -located.-  The transmission line and distrib-  utinn station are both of the most  modern construction, and should do  much for the developmont'of the  mining industry which will be  served be this extension, and will be  the means of increasing tonnage over  over the C.l'.R; and'the Kettle "-Val  ley railway������, as power from this line  will be used lorthe operation of the  Cauada Capper'company's mines  ajjd mills at Allenby and Cupper  mountain.  BEES DON'T LIKE  PROHIBITION  He Wanted It Rubbed In  A wealthy western congressman,  says the Argonaut, much against his  will, erected a magnificent mansion in  Washington to please his wife and  daughter. The congressman was of  plain tastes and had no liking for the  social activities of the national capital. Ono day an old friend visited  him. Wearing a faco of the deepest  gloom, the owner of the stately homo  escorted hi-1 caller throughout the  place. Tho visitor was admiring and  enthusiastic, but the host said little  or nothing. When tho inspection was  finished arid the two had returned to  the library on the first floor, the visitor said:  "Well, Jim, you certainly cap'tsay  that you haven't overything that you  want."  ''Yes, lean," replied the millionaire sombrely; "I want a parrot?"  "Why a parrot*;'1  "I should like to hang him over  the front door, so that every timo I  enter this place ho can yell out,  'There comes that old fool again!' "  You can not reach The Sun's  numerous readers-except through  ts advertising columns.  The department of  says a Central News message from  Washington, has received a report  from a farmer in Fairfax county, Vir  ginia, that he is experiencing considerable trouble with his bees.  They have tired of their regular  work of filling honeycombs, and  from pure devilment have dropped  on the ground under his apple trees  and there made themselves drunk  by consuming the oozing juice of  the decaying fruit. The farmer anticipates serious loss owing to his  bees' behavior.  How doth the busy little bee  Go posting to perdition���������  The only U. S. native free  To mock at Prohibition!

The Required Amount or  51 Per Cent ol! thc Property oi tho District Has  Been Subscribed  The petition asking the provincial  government for the foimatiou ol a  water municipal in this, valley went  over the top this week, 51 per oent  of the property of the district being  pledged as security for tbe cost of in-  rtalling an Irrigation system.

FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8, 1020  The. governor-general has, by proclamation,  set aside Saturday, October 9, as a day on'  -which to specially "emphasize the great loss  which Canadians, individually and collectively j  are sustaining through destruction by fire of  both natural and created resources. At acinic  of high building costs and acute scarcity of  material, we are burning buildings at a crimi  nal rate. Our fire loss of last year, viz.. $23,-.  500,000, or approximately $2.00 per capita,  -was the highest per capita in the world. Not  only is this a complete loss of national wealth,  but itd replacement creates increased competition for available building supplies, thus enhancing prices for new building. How can wc  hope to overcome thc housingshortage when  in Ontario alone, last year"5804 dwellings  were damaged or destroyed, causing a loss of  $1,753,3.���������!   Thnre were also 744 farm barns  - dessroyed, at a loss  of $1,180,906,  of which  $557,730 was uninsured. Lightning damaged  or destroyed 1102 buildings in Ontario,involv-  ing a loss of $500,885, of which $212,778  was  not covered by insurance. None of these farm  buildings was equipped with lightning rods,  whereas but two buildings protected by lightning rods were    damaged  and these to the  amount of $22 only.    Matches were again responsible for the largest   number   of  known  fires, 1148 in   Ontario originating therefrom.  Practically every fire due to matches is the result of carelessness. .Public education and a  :   . recognition-o-F-pcrsonal-iiesponsibility are  es-  j.--.^,s.ential'to a reduction-ofXhe lire waste.    It is  - particularly essential to interest the younger  JjeriQration, through the Canadian teachers, in  Conviviality in America  Under Prohibition  (By Trot. Stephen Leacock, of McGill-University, in The  London Sunday Pictorial.)  Prohibition in America has its tragic and its  comic side. On its tragic side are to be reckoned the increasing power of fanaticism and  bigotry, thc wholesale poisoning by deadly substitutes for decent drink, the annihilation of  simple comfort, the creation of a new army of  criminals,- the infusion into society of a horde  of detestable spies and informers, and the extinction of -the very principle of personal  liberty.  But the prohibition regime is not without  its lighter, and even its ludicrous, aspects. Not  the least of them is the desperate effort in the  first-class American hotels to maintain the  semblance of convivial drinking.  An elaborate dinner list presents fifty kinds  of drinks, apple, champagne, raspberry hock,  dandelion cocktails, and such abominations.  Nothing is more ludicrous than to see a fashionably dressed supper party 'in New York,  w Hi a deferential waiter beside them, gravely  debating as between California grape juice and  thimblebcrry port.  "When the grape juice is finally selected it is  carried in by two waiters, lying on its side in  a little wicket basket, held up to the "light for  verification, uncorked with profound care and  presented first to thc host, so that he may be  duly satisfied of thc vintage and thc bouquet.  Mess of this sort is actually-sold at two  dollars -a .pint. It is bought by people who  continue with pathetic insistence to hope that  if they'drink enough of -'t it may at last go to  their heads.  Another giddy concoction is the awful stuff  called Temperance Beer. It is bottled, and  labelled and corked and wired as if���������poor  thing'���������it. might really burst itself out of its  prison through the mad strength of it. Alas!  when it is let loose it gurgles feebly into the  glass and lies there dead.  If a skilled chemist were to analyze this  maddening beverage he would find- it to contain one-half of one per cent of spirits. It .is  estimated that if a person were to drink four  bucketfuls of it he would feel���������among other  sensations���������a certain exhileration.

J: ire Prevention Day will give      * ������ L *  a splendid opportunity for bringing this subject to the attention of pupils and should produce good results.  A person who has made enough money by  selling whisky under the present Prohibition  act,to place himself on "easy street,''is not  qualified to instruct people how vote on the  tempcretice plebiscite on the 20th.  In the form the liquor 'question is submitted  to the people, there appears to be but oneway  in which a person can vote rationally. If it  were *a question of government control or  "bone dry," then the decision would merely  involve the elector's personal preference���������  whether he wanted temperance or the liquor  traffic to continue. But the present Prohibition act has not promoted temperance. It is  class legislation of the rankest sort. It enriches thc unscrupulous among the medical  profession, the druggists and the public carriers, and robs thc consumer, whether he wants  the liquor for medicinal purposes, for astimu-  lent, or as a means of acquiring a "jag."  Wc have made these brief observations  merely to let thc people know where we stand.  We were never very expert at straddling a  fence.  Certain industrial associations urge the creation of a  new national department of public works, to absorb the  department of lhe interior.  Prohibition is going to take a lot of. trade away from  the embalmer-*. After a man has licked up raisin* jack  and moonshine for a few years he will be pretty well  embalmed before he dies.

It is well to  take our example from the province of Ontario, inasmuch as many people in England  quite wrongly associate prohibition exclusively  with the United States.  If there is any state in the United States  where the temper of the governing minority is  more fanatical, where hypocrisy is rifer, where  liberty is more suppressed, where the name of  religion is more freely invoked to cover the  tins of the tyrant and the informer than is the  case in Ontario, that state is in a bad way indeed.  Let us take, then, Ontario for thc scene of  our illustration of what a "temperance" banquet is like.

Operating the largest .shovels in  the world, and reversing the flow of  a river, the Hydro Electric- Power  Commission of Ontario is carrying  on an enormous engineering project  at Niagara Falls, practically without tho use of steam.  There are m*.:.ny startling; phases to  this work, which is the largest  engineering feat attempted in tho  Dominion of Canada, and the biggest r  engineering job at present bolus  carried on in the North American  continent. "  In ordev lo get water to the new  ���������power house which will be erected  Juat-JJabovc .

Connecting with thp Welland River is  a- power canal, ��������� stretching from  Queenston and encircling the city of  Niagara Falls, Ont., which will be  eight and a quarter miles long when  completed.  The original. ��������� survey ; for tho  Niagara development was made in  1914, and the construction work begun in May, 1917. The commission expects to; have ,-the new plant  in working order in 1922. "War conditions handicapped the engineers,  but this year's operations were begun  on a"gigantic scale. A-trip over tho  right of way will impress tho observer with the vast scope ot tho  undertaking which, in its completed  state, will cost.approximately ?27,-  000,000.00. ../  Two miles above the brink of  Niagara Falls a steam dredge is  gnawing away at the channol of tho  "Welland River, removing in generous  chunks the river bottom and a portion -ot Hog Island, which guards tho  entrance to this historic creek, Tha  Jone dredge and (ta attendant tugs  are the only pieces of equipment engaged on the entire Niagara development which are not owned by tho  Hydro-Electric Tower Commission.  They, with six or seven switch  engines, are the only apparatus in  use on the development whicli require steam In their operation.  Even tho drills employed on the  ���������rock deposits of the canal right of  way are operated by air, electrically  compressed. A mile or two Inland a  huge' clamshell swung from an  aerial cableway, drops into the river  and then emerges, bringing With it  generous bites from the river bottom, which are deposited on the  river bank at tho foot of the towor  from where the operator directs tho  activities of tho clamshell. Deposits  of earth and clay along the north  ���������bank of the river reveal the effectiveness* of the clamshell In th la particular 'p'ortrbn' of "'the1 development.  A short -ride from -Niagara Falls  over .n'ow.^..road*ivays. built by the  commission from ^rushed limestone  removed from 'its right of way,  brings one to tho canal proper,  where the activities of hugo electric  ���������shovels, electric trains and gangs ot  The stone crusher, which has a  capacity of 4,000 cubic yards, is well  worth a visit. The rocks from the  excavations aro cast into a trough  opening into gigantic steel jaws  which grind and munch, breaking  the largest pieces into smaller bits  that are carried away on a belt conveyor. A series of crushers reduce  (lie rocks to a form where thoy may  be utilized for building purposes and.  stored for future use.  Fifty-five miles of railway, all electrified, and tapping flvq trunk linc3,  are required in the construction  work on tho development. On this  railway the commission has in* operation more electric locomotives than  any railway fjystem in Canada. At  present 2,000-"men are employed on  the big job. These men aro houssd  and. fed by tho commission* A eur-  geon, an ambulance and a hospital  maintained by the commission are at  the disposal of tho employees in cast  of accident. The adoption of t'itj  newest safety devices has minimized  tlie danger of accent on the development, nnd tha 'commission has-  devoted a great'deal of time to safety  first propaganda in order to safeguard the men in its employ. About  2,500 acres, or SO per cent, of the  lands acquired by the commission  for Its right ot way, havo been converted Into farms, and tho produco  from the farms is sold to the employees of lhe commission. The commission maintains Its own telephone  system on tho development, and it  has connections throughout the province. Garages, machine shops b,v^  office buildings lino tho right of -way.  By establishing its power houso at  Quccnston the Hydro-Electrfre Power  Commission is enablod to take advantage of tho full drop of both Niagara Falls and the Gorge, a total  drop of 005 feet, affording 100 per  cent, more electric power from the  same amount of water.

BUSINESS <������MAN,  have you ever thought  that advertisi i% put? you in  good conipan;-V It is an old  saying that a man is known  by the com puny he keeps.  When youjoi; '.he ranks of  the advertise * . you join the  ranks of the biggest and  most successild merchants  and manufacturers in the  world.  How many id.-ge concerns  can you name  in any   large  city in the co* -itry?   Name  them   and you   will   notice  that  all are b'\ ��������� advertisers  and all are je<.-.'ers in   their  lines.    Ask your friends   to  name the   most   successful  merchants they know in the  big  cities, and in  each case  the name ol 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.  ���������J#  ���������  in������ fti&nks ������v  /..-.  in  .u*******-  ������5Bi?  iaacoesst...;.;!

Jl  The Moderation League of British  Columbia is a non partizan organization of men and women interested and representative- ot thc moral,  C'.-uini'TcL'l, eouial and industrial  life of 11>ii- province. Its members  bslieve in moderation in thought,  word and de-Hl. They believe in  temperance in all things, and in the  furtherance of these principles be  lievu that temperance as it applies  to alcoholic beverages is not best  -���������t-rvc-d by the present IJ.C. 1'rohibi-  tion Act.  On the contrary they believe that  to produce temperance-it is a first  essential that no intemperate legislation be forced on a large section of  the public such as is the case under  thc present prohibition act, which  has fostered bad temper, resentment  and distrust; has been a prolific  breeder of lies and subterfuge; has  made criminals cf decent men, and  has hopelessly failed in its objects.  Thc League believes that a moderate law which respects rights tradi  tional to our race will command the  n.'i'pcct   of   the   public   and   that a  moderate law which is respected 13  much more to be desired than a law  which rides rouyh shod over the  public and earns only their derision  and contempt.  The Moderation League urges the  electorate to support its efforts to  substitute for the present Prohibition Act a measure of Government  Control which shall embrace tbe  platform of the League".  This platform was published in  every newspaper in the province in  the early part of June of thc present  year, and is aa follows:  It Foresii-v lis Fate  .Johnny and Jimmy weie ;.:, a party,  says the Argonaut, and being away  in a corner at supper time, they were  not looked after well.
