a Thirty Hours' Layoff
Grand Forks was without
power and light from 4
o'clock Wednesday afternoon
until 8 o'clock last night as a
result of the burning* of some
of the poles by forest fires on
the West Kootenay's power
line between this city and
Rossland. Wednesday night
the city was lighted only by
the moon.
Yesterday morning, with
the reservoir full of water for
fire protection, the supply
was cut off to city consumers. During the day the
fire engine pnmped enough
water to supply the domestic
needs of the citizens. At 8
o'clock last night the power
was again turned on, and this
office is once more working
normal conditions.
J. S. Deschamps,
Prominent Publio
Man, Dies at Nelson
J. 8. Deschainps, Rossland  lum
berman and contractor, died  at 5
o'olock Monday morning at tbe   St
Eugene hospital, Cranbrook.   Mr
Deschamps was' taken  suddenly ill
while travelling by train   last week
and   was   rushed to the Cranbrook
hospital, where an operation for ap«
pendicitis was performed.   He  appeared to be making good  progress,
but collapsed on Sunday uod failed
to   rally.    The  body  was shipped
from   Cranbrook   to   Rossland   on
Flags were lowered to half mast
at Rossland on Monday and the
whole Kootenay community mourns
tbe loss of a public spirited man
who has grown up with tbe country
and hus been identified with every
movement of public interest. Mr.
Deschamps wus 55 years old and
leavasa widow and four children at
Rossland, Ruth, Dodo, Jeanette
and Joe.
The funeral wao held nt IU
o'clock on Wednesday, interment
being made its the Trail  cemetery
Mr. Doschampe was a prominent
member of tbe Knights of Coluin»
bus, an active supporter of all sports
und a keen curler. In 1920, as Liberal candidute, be contested Trail
against J. H. Schofield.
He was born at Preeeott, Out.,
but had been a resident of British
Columbia for tbe past twenty-five
years. He wae mayor of Hossland
at one time, and was also president
of the board of trade and was in«
terested in many lumber companies
during the early days in British
Columbia, being known among lumbermen throughout tbe Pacilic
sight. Winnipeg city is showing a
briskness in business not seen there
for several years. Regina is picking
up and so also is Calgary. Edmonton and Saskatoon are also showing
signs of tbe timfB. The merchants
are optimistic that country tradewill
be revived before winter comes
Fruit selling prospects are im
proving, but British Columbia
shippers are uot alone in competition for the prairie trade We notice
that Ontario is shipping in plums
and tomatoes in volume, also early
apples. This trade will be pushed
brisky in the apple deal, especially
in fall varieties.
We also notice the presence of
several agents of Washington cooperative concerns, and find that
they are booking considerable busi»
ness in car hts of apricots, peaches,
plums, prunes and apples.
The tr*de in discussing competi-
iton from Ontario and Washington
allege that British Columbia quotations are higher than those of Washington, especially in apricots,
peaches and apples. Our shippers
will be well advised if they study
competitive prices now quoted and
make sure tbat tbey do not under
estimate the importance of meeting
outside competition. If quick action is not taken much of tbe available business will be booked al outside points.
Apart from winter apples, competition will be very keen and prices
will rule iow. We have not published advanced prices of apples at
United States points because we feel
that there is nothing permanent
about them, and they will not likely
be maintained.—Markets Butletin.
huge Royal Mail refrigerator
steamships of the N type, including the Nebraska will
come to Vancouver for apples.
In addition the great new
motorships Lochkatrine and
Dintedijk, now operating in
the route, have refrigerator
space for 45,000 boxes of apples each.
The steamship Kinderdijk,
sailing from here in September, will probably carry shipments of pears in her refrigerator space. The Glamorganshire, sailing October 3,
has no refrigerator space.
There is no cbange from last week
in the forest fire situation on the
North Fork except tbat it covers a
little more territory.
The fire now covers a stretch of 14
miles on both sides of the river
and tbree mileB on the Rock Candy
road, Tbe burned-over area is said to
be seventeen miles long by ten miles
wide, and is u very desolate-looking
region. Both fires, tbe Lynch creek
and tbe Dittle Bertba, have now
joined and are burning witb increased fury.

forest fire on Tursday, aocordiug lo

western continent—that i.s what western motor maps will show by thc
end of the coming summer. lt is
called "Grand Circle Tour" and it
will offer the most wonderful variety
of natural scenery accessible by motor road in the world. One last
link in the chain, only a few miles
now in length, remains to be completed. Then the road will be open
to the motorists of thi continent.
This unfinished section, from the
Vermilion summit near Banff, Alberta, in the Canadian Pacific Rockies, down to thc Columbia galley,
will, Canadian Government engineers
say, bc ready fen traffic by September
next All that remains to be done
is the grading and widening of the
unfinished portion of tbe road Then
the great loop, dream of a few far-
risioncd men, will be completed, and
.•he stream of tourists may flow along
■his unparalleled motor highway.
What will it mean?    It will mean
ibat tbe motorists may start as Ca**-
gary, Alberta—as this is a loop highway, of course, start at any other
point on it he desires—travel west
through the grassy foothills to thc
great front door of the Rockies which
is, incidentally, thc gateway lo the
Banff National Park. At* Banff,
where there i.s already a motor campsite as well as several good hotels,
he may linger to bathe In the radium
hot springs, play golf among the
clouds or fish in some of the numerous well stocked lakes or streams
of the locality. From Banff lhe mad
proceeds westward to Castle, thence
by a short detour to thc wonderful
Lake Louise region and on lo Moraine Lake and the rugged sublimity
of the Valley of the Ten Peaks. Returning, it climbs by easy grades
to the Vermilion Pass, 5,2M feet,
then drops down to the Columbia
Valley through the Kootenay Na-
ional Park, to Lake Windermere
and lhe village of Invermere on its
Every mile of thc way through the
Canadian Parks has been built with
an eye to easy travelling and scenic
grandeur. Giant peaks, often Ih-I-
meted with a snow cap centuries old,
guard the way. Deer, wild sheep,
elk and goat may be seen feeding
fearlessly on the slopes and practically every valley holds a blue lake
stocked with trout From thc Divide
thc road runs through hitherto unopened country, which is one of thc
richest hoth in scenery and big game
in the Rockies. From Invermere it
drops south, skirts thc beautiful
Windermere and Columbia Lakes,
the latter source of the mighty Columbia river, through deep-shaded
forests lo Ihe International Boundary
which it cut? 'ust north of Metaline.

it swings soutn over excellently con
structed roads through Spokane,
Walla Walla, and Pendleton, where
il links up with thc Columbia Highway from Portland. Then it drops
down past lhe eastern entrance to
Crater Lake National Park, to San
Francisco and on to Los Angeles.
From this point a short detour wil!
allow the motorist to see the famous
Vosemite as well as Grand Park and
Sequoia Park, the home of the giatt
redwoods, Then, travelling cast, be
may visit the Grand Canyon and proceed north via Salt Lake City to the
Yellowstone Park. From Yellow-

north to the United States Glacier
National Park and less than two
I,ours more to the International Boun
dary. Following the trail to Cards-
Ion, he may make a short detour to
Waterton Lakes Park in Southern
Alberta, thus completing his tenth
National  Park.
Thousands of motorists, it is expected wil! follow this scenic highway as soon as it is thrown opea.
American motorists will want to
conic north to sec the glories of the
Rockies, Canadian motorists will
want to sec beautiful California and
Iln wonders of thc Grand Canyon
and the Yellowstone. This will mean
an international exchange of money
as important as many an industry, as
well as increased international good
The new road also opens up an all
Canadian circle tour, via Banff, Lake
Windermere, the Columbia Valley
and returning over the Crow's Nest
Pass to thc prairies. This will afford a 600 mile trip fore Canadian
motorists through the heart of the
most wonderful scenery in the Rockies, in which for the whole distance
tiie lourist will either he among Of

Are Raided
Police and officials of the
goveanment liquor control
board swooped down upon
bootleg suspects of tlie Similk
ameen riding on Tuesday,
says the Penticton Herald of
the 9th inst., and, after raiding their premises, arrested '
60 persons between 4 a.m.
that morning and today.
About 42 arrests were made
yesterday, and the balance
were gathered in last night
and early this morning.
A large quantity of beer
and hard liquor was seized in
Penticton yesterduy morning
and stored in the municipal
hall and grounds. Since that
time the amount being kept
there under guard has been
mateJialy increased by wet
goods brought herefrom Oliver, Osoyoos, Fairview and
the country around those
towns. The haul in Penticjon
alone was about 100 barrels
of beer aud over 270 cases of
hard liquor.

These people are alive, are observant, are
' militant, and that is the problem which all of
these nations which operate at all in the Near
East or are in any way responsible for things,
must take into account. Mohammedanism
appeals equally to black and to yellow and to
brown, and is growing at a tremendous rate
in the heart of Africa and among the myriads
of India and China.
A remarkable increase in the volume of mo -
tor traffic into Canada in 1921 is shown by the
returns compiled by the department of customs. According to tlieir registration, 617,285
automobiles entered Canada for touring purposes during the calendar year 1921. Of these
015,074 remained for less than one mouth and
2211 for a period of more than a month and
less than six months. The total number for
1920 was only 93,300 or an increase of 523,985
cars in one year. Allowing au average expenditure of $25 per day including gasoline and
garage charges for the first class of car and an
average length of stay of seven days, this
traffic represents an expenditure of over $107,-
000,000 while the second class of car on the
basis of an estimated expenditure of $20 per
day for thirty days was worth approximately
$1,320,000. This means that the motor highways of Canada brought in a foreign revenue
last year of $108,320,000. Estimated on a 5
per cent basis it means that improved roads
are worth over two billion dollars to this
country without taking into account the service they render Canadians themseives. The
registrations according to provinces were:
Nova Scotia, 223; Prince Edward Island, 22;
New Brunswick, 1826; Quebec, 43,264; Ontario, 537,283; Manitoba, 8020; Saskatchewan,
427; Alberta, 363; British Columbia,  25,957.
The season's travel to the Canadian national
parks seems likely to be one of the heaviest
in their history. Reservations in many of the
hotels have beeu booked months in advance
and the chief resorts are now full of foreign
and Canadian visitors. The Jasper Park
Lodge, the new bungalow hotel which was
opened for the first time on June 15, at Jasper, will make it possible for many tourists to
find accommodation in this great reservation
along the Canadian National Railways and a
noticeable increase both here and at Banff in
the number of people who come to spend the
entire summer and go eut along the trails to
the beautiful but little known portions of the
parks is observed. The total number of visitors to the Canadian national parks during
the past season was approximately 160,000,
about 60,000 of whom came from outside
countries. It is estimated that this travel represents approximately $ls,000,000 foreign
money brought into the country for which
Canada sent out practically nothing in return.
Fhe total expenditures on the national parks
during the past twen.y-live years have been a
little over $0,000,000 or about one third the
value of the foreign travel they attracted last
"The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand
that rocks the world." Women now feel that
if rocking the cradle turns out citizens who
rock the world, keeping the cradle on an even,
keel will bring us men and women who can
be counted on to hold the world steady. It's
going to mean a tremendous thing when every
mother can give her child the foundation of
his political education, says Mrs. Maud Wood
Park of the National League of Women
Voters, and it is because women feel this so
strongly that they are attending our league
schools of citizenship. It's odd that we should
ever have expected boys to grow up regarding
the intelligent usp of the vote as a sacred duty
when the mother's reply to questions about
local government and politics was, usually,
"Ask father when he comes horae." The psychology of it was wrong. A modern psychologist would trace the neglect of political duties
by so many men by their mother's lack of political education. Mothers of tomorrow will
answer. Duties of citizenship will be taught
in the home, in the daily life of the thild, just
as personal ethics and conduct are taught,
and if we'll wait patiently for a few years we
shall see what this way of treating the ceadle
brings us.

The mental hygiene movement is aimed to
secure toward mental diseases the same attitude that now prevails toward tuberculosis
and other diseases of the body. Disorders of
the mind can be combated as successfully,
once the public stops regarding them as specters and joins intelligently in the tight. Right
now we are just about where the campaigners
against tuberculosis were ten yetfvs ago, and
we must do our work as they did, which means
that education of the public is to be our firs t
step. Laws still reflect an attitude to waa d
mental diseases justifiable only on the assumption that it is a crime to be mentally ill.
For thousands whose behavior is affected by
mental illness the only route to the hospital
lies through the police station and the court.
When more than 72,000 men were rejected
for mental and nervous diseases from the
American draft army, it became impossible to
evade open conflict with mental diseases.

A traveler in the Near East, Dr. A. K. lies-
tor, says this failures of the Allies at the Dardanelles did three things. It prolonged the
war two years, it caused the breakdown of
Russia, and it ushered in'a new relationship
between the East and thc West. As a result
of the permeation of the East, by western
ideas and the failure at the Dardanelles, Islam
is awake and observant as it has not been for
a thousand years. \o longer does the East
regard the West as a single unity, but rather
as a congeries of self-controlling units that
can be played over against each other. There
are 250 millions of the people of this earth
who occupy the area from Morocco to China
and the chart of Africa to the Black and the
Caspia saas. Every one of those millions
bows his head toward Mecca once at least
each day, and from that vast area 100,000
picked men come avery year to the capital of
Islam, Mecca, which has been the center of
eligion  und politics  for a thousaiid years.

era and shippers   Apples on tlio whole
promise exceedingly well in Ontario,
although Spy, Baldwin and Greening
promise to be light. In the other
apple growing provinces a crop 25
por cent lighter than last year is in
dicated. Peaches and plums promise
well in Ontario; so too docherriu
and currants, while grapes and  rasp.
The woods are yours
to enjoy, but only if
you keep them green
berries are likely to prove a fairly
good crop, but pears appear to be be
low the average.
A liirger acreage than usual has
been sown to onions and ona per cent
less to potatoes. The prairie provides, British Columbia, and the
Maritime provinces all show a rather
larger decrease in the acreage devoted
to potatoes, and Quebec shows an
increase of 6 per cent over last year.
In British Columbia peaehes, plume
and prunes promise to be bettor than
tho average; aprieots raspberries an
currants about an average; cherries
fair and loganberries light. An increase of the acreage devoted to onions
is reported.
Taking Canada as a whole, 703,600
acres aro covored by potatoes this
year, compared with 701,912 acres
last year, being an increase of 1088
acres. Returning to apples, the total
production last yoar iu the flvo apple
growing provinces was 4,045,813
barrels against 3,382,540 in 1920.
Tha care that is required in packing

Asked if the big harvest aad readjustment of freight rates wonld

matter over which the Canadiaa
Pacific had no control.
"It all rests with the owner of the
grain,' he said. "We areprepared
to haul it either Rait or West, just
as he direcis."i
Humor periodically revives the
story that the Canadian Pacific ii
about to electrify its mountain lines
in British Columbia. In regard to
this Mr. Hall stated, as he has on
former visits here, that the company
is still conducting experiments with
a view at some later date of formulating a policy in regard to ths
proposed electrification. The impression he gave was that if the plan
is pronounced feasible by its experts
and the company is ready, it will
proceed with the work. In any event
this is liable to be a considerable
time distant

Assiniboia, Alberta. — A further
programme of improvement of lines
of the.Canadian Pacific in the west
was announced by D. C. Coleman,
vice-president in charge of Western
lines, who is on his way west.
The largest item on the list was
the relaying with one hundred pound
steel of the double track between
iKnnce and  Kenora.
A considerable number of bridges
vvi'l be replaced with more perma*
nent structures.
With respect to work on new
branch lines it w is announced that
the existing gap on the Weyburn-
Lethbridge will bs closed-; the line
from Russell noi th will be completed; the first fifty miles of the
Lanigan northerly line will he fully
equipped for traffic; and the grading
will be continued on the branch lines
from Consul east. In this connection, Mr. Colemnn said; "We had
hoped to announce a larger programme of branch line construction
but until the effect of the freight
rate reductions j st ordered on the
revenues of the railway companies
can be accurately determined, it is
obvious that an ambitious policy ia
out of the question."
Port Hope. - The C. P. R. Port
Hope bridge is fifteen hundred feet
long. It is an interesting question
how long it will require to paint it
and how much paint will be used on
the work. There are at present
eleven men swinging the brushes;
they will be busy for at leaat eight
weeks and three hundred gallons of
paint will spread over the long span.
The work of preparing the girders
is a big job and a tedious one. Men
go over the entire structure with
small picks and hammers removing
all the corroded parts after which
it is brushed down with steel
brushes. A graphite paint is used
and it comes all ready prepared for
the work. The wages of the men
for this job will exceed two thousand five hundred dollars, which
gives some idea what the painting
account for the C. P. R. would
amount to each yeai. There arc tv/o
cars which provide eating and sleeping quarters for lhe men. It is just
seven years ago that this hig structure was given a liberal coat of
