Spedal Otynexpondenee of The Sun.
Victoria, December 5 —Effectively silencing repeated rumors that
the government did not want an
educational survey made, Hon- Dr.
MacLean, minister of education,
has slated that his department had
no such objection, but be warned
that it would cost a lot of money
and he doubted if tbere was ar.y
real reason for such an enquiry.
The minister pointed to tbe great
increase in the school population,
the many new schools erected and
teachers employed, and the frequent compliments received on tbe
present system. He admitted that
when reports got around that things
eould be improved upon, a great
many people began to think there
was somethiog wrong. This, he
stated emphatically, was not the
ease, and while an educational sur"
vey might show wbere slight improvements could be made, thecbil
dren in British Columbia schools
were getting tbe best education of
any in Canada.
For another year the opposition
members of the public accounts
committee have been unable to find
anything wrong with the financial
dealings of tbe government. Acer-
tain amount of noise was heard over
alieged wrong spending, but wben
rouohers and accoui Is were freely
placed before the committee, everything was found in order. Premier
Oliver draws attention to the fact
that never since the government
eame into power, seven years ago,
has the public accounts committee
brought a resolution before tbe
legislature showing that one dollar
had been wrongfully expended.
This, said the government leader,
was at least a tea her in tbe cap of
the  dministration.
Enormous increases in British
Columbia's agricultural and dairy
production over tbe last five years
are shown io information furnished
the house by Hon. E. D. Barrow,
minister of agrtoulture. Fruit production increased 187 per cent, tbe
increase io value being from 11 «-
806,489 in 1916 to $3,764,000 last
year. Dairy production increased
in that period by 134 percent;
poultry production, 114 per cent,
and potato production 58 per cent.
The value of egg production increased from 12,586,000 to $2,002,-
Increases are shown of similar
proportions in nearly every class of
products, a fitting refutation, Baid
the minister, of tbe statements that
the department of agriculture is not
alive to the needs of the farmers.

the number of apples, $200 more
than was raised last year was re

Net receipts for the day t. tailed
$1500, while but 150 cases of apples
were used for sale ou the day. A

receipts at about $1300. The apples
were the gift of the Associated Growers of British Columbia.

The Canadian Pacific Railway ia
this year celebrating the twentieth
anniversary <*f the fo,nidation of the
Company's system oi pensions far
•he employees, j
It was in 1»02 that the Board ol
Directors, under the Presidency ot
Lord Shaughnessy, looked into tha
rat-arc for the benefit of theae wha
were laying the foundations of tha
service that was to take so large a
part in the ap-buildtng at Canada.
In December, 1902, the directors
passed a resolution stating that a
time had come when provision should
be made for officers and permanent
employees who, after long years of
faithful service, had reached aa age
when they were unequal to the
further performanee of their duties,
and announcing that a plaa ef super*
annuation had been detenaiaed upon.
The plan was a generous one.
The Company provided all th* money
neMseary, aad the employees wero
not called upon to contribute to it
in any way whatever. In 1903 when
it was first put into effect Canadian
Pacific employees numbered about
40,000. To-day they approximate
90,000, and evory one of thorn, from
the humblest stenographer, office
boy, or "track walker" or even the
minor employee at some far-off outpost in China or in Europe, has old-
age sustenance guaranteed so long
as ho or she stays with the Company.
Some Statistics
The Company's first contribution
to the pension fund was «J250,iiJ0
Which was supplemented by annual
grants starting at ?80,000 which
have, from time to time, been increased, until for some years past it
has been ?500,000 annually. To lhe
end of S'j'm'i the Company had contributed a total of $4,715,000 to the
fund while payments on pensions hud
amounted to $8,867,802, leavinu a
balance to the credit of the fun;l of
$1,640,103. In 1022 the total pay-
ments made amounted io $508,051,
and at October 1st of this year the
total number of Ihe Companies pensioners was 1,182, each of wnoni
was drawing an average ol $35.02
per month, lt is of intercut to nots
that since the pension fund became

Inoperative through the death of tho
Having in view conditions of increased living costs which then prevailed the world over, the Company
in  1919  allowed   the  pensioners  a
additional bonus of twenty-five pe
cent,   of   their   regular  allowance
Thia went into effect on May 1st ot
that year,  and  continued  until  the
end of 1922.   In view of the mod!
fication of the condition that made
it necessary, that bonus is this year
set at twenty per cent.
Kept in Canada
By far the  greater part of this
money is of course  distributed  in
Canada, just as is the case with the
Company's    vast   payroll   of   over
$100,000,000 annually, and the many
millions   it   yearly   spends   on   the
purchase of supplies undor tho policy of distributing as much of ita
expenditure  as  is   possible  ia  the
country it exists to servo. a
The operation of thc fund is simplicity itself. Upon reaching the
age of 05 every employee who has
joined the staff before reaching tbe
age ol' forty is entitled to retirement
if tha Company so desires and can
claim a pen-ion of one par cent, of
the average monthly pay received
for the tell years preceding retirement for every year in which he haa

is as tne system waa ns-as. acvn**eu
twenty years ago, and there ha*
been but one amendment to its provisions. In 1B08 it was found that
in some cases tho amount of tho
pension so calculated was insufficient to protect the recipient against
want as was intended, and it waa
provided that from thenceforth the
minimum amount of pension paid
would be $20 per month.
Fosters Efficiency
That this system haa boon a big
factot in fostering the efficiency so
largely identified with Caaadua
Pacific operation is undeniable. Mr.
E. W. Beatty, President of tho
Company, speaks of it not only aa
a prime necessity in these daps of
sociological progress, and as aa inherent right of those who give lives
of faithful work to Canadian Pacific
service, but also as one of tho
things that has helped to bring hrto
existence the high standard of cooperation that 'exists between all
branches of the Company's service.
"It is helping to make contented employees," says Mt. Beatty, "and that
is the first requisite of faitkfijl, atti*
:ient service."

The Robbery Was Staged
on This Side the Line
Near Danville--Car and
$1000 Worth of Whisky
Dan Docksteader and his
nephew Orville, whisky runners, were held np and robbed
of their car and twenty two
cases of whisky, valued at
about $1000, on this side the
international boundary line
near Danville at 5 o'clock
Monday morning by two
liquor hijacks.
The robbers, after using
their guns, tied their victims
to trees and warned them to
remain quiet for an hour.
The small change in the two
men's pockets, amounting to
about $35, was also appropriated by the bandits before
they crossed the line.

The sessiou began at tho university

The scientists adjourned for dinuer
at the Grosvenor hotel, and devoted
the evening to the most vital problem
in agriculture at this time—how to
meet lew prices with profit to the pro-
ducer. J. A. Grant, markets commissioner, speaking of the marketing
of fruit on the prairies, said sevejal

well, but fell when tho American

this point the British Columbia trait

He suggested that a luxury tax
might be placed on the imported fruit
and that the lowest price for fruit be
fixed for the first consignments, to be
raised afterwards according to demand.

The business of markoting was
treated eloquently by W. L. Mackeu

history ofthe association. "Coopera.

with both the producer and the consumer was essential to successful cooperative societies

Notes, Notions and Notables
There need be no sympathy wasted on the
bootleggers who were held up by "hijackers" a
few miles south of this city this week. If some
one later wuuld have killed the "hijackers"
there would have l)3en justice all round.
The enforcement ofthe Volstead law in the
United States is an issus that raises its head
wherever publio affairs are discussed in that
country.   At  the  conference of governors at
Wost Baden, Indiana, there wis little talk of
anything else.   Indeed,  Governor  Parker  of
Louisiana actually walked out of the meeting
hall because he could not get the conference
to regard the KuKlux Klau as a  more important subject for discussion than the prohibitory law.    As a  body the conference was
Strongly in favor of a determined attempt to
"put teeth" into enforcing the law, and it sent
memorial to the president pledging the governors 11  his support in any effort to make
prohibition really effective everywhere.    Two
governors, Silzer of New Jersey and Blaine of
Wisconsin,   were  out of sympathy   with the
memorial and said so.   Otherwise the conference was unanimous.
The tendency of the Protestant denominations to draw together wherever ground for
anion can be found continues to manifest
itself. At the recent meeting of the council of
the Congregational church at Springfield,
Mass., the delegates voted almost unanimously in favor of a union of the Presbyterian and
the Congregational churches in the United
States according toa plan proposed by a union
organization of the two denominations in
Cleveland. That plan deals with creeds in this
way: "It shall be understood tbat both parties
retain their authorized formulas of belief.
Either one or both of these shall be accepted
as representing the substance of doctrine for
that part ot the united body "hat holds it, and
shull be recognized as adequate . . by every
other part."
From the Laurcntic. which was torpedoed
in shallow water off the Irish coast during
the war, the British government, has recovered
$32,500,000 worth of hullhn. The success of
the undertaking has raised hopes that other
ships, sui.k in deeper water, will also yield
their treasures. Apdroximately sixteen hundred ships were sunk by submarines, most of
them near the coasts of Britain and France
iu water perhaps one hundred feet deep.
In Korea, or Uhosen, as it is now commonly called, youth doea not hold the reins.
Youth is kept back from public position and
age and maturity ars treated with profound
reverence anil respect. Men and women are
complimented upon tlieir venerable and aged
appearance rather than upon their youth and
beauty. In nearly all oastorn countries the
laws of the land are made by the oldest people, and a young, ambitious man can not be
endured. It is only within a vary few years
that a man under.sixty was considered of sufficient age to be capable of making laws or
judging them. A change, however, seems to
becoming gradually and youth will eventually assume the reins according to indications..
another country house, the chronicles of which

At   East Hendred House, near Abingdon,

Eminent anthropologists state that 15,000
years has made little or no change in  the human skull jr human form.   They  base  their
argument on a careful examination  of fossilized  bones dating back  to  the Pleistocene
period, which were recently found in Egypt,
The bones were found by a representative of
the British School of Archaeology in Egypt,
at a point in  the desert thirty miles south of
Assiout, on the east bank of the Nile,  near a
village called Qa.i. They were discovered in a
pit close to a cave  which  had probably been
occupied by an ancient craftsman, who  used
both fresh and fossilized bones for ornamentation, for carved bones and ivory were found
which belonged to the 19th dynasty, about
1200 B.C. Some of the skull bones found were
very small, but were those of adults, and in
dicated t*iat a smaller race of people had in
habited the area, most probably during the
Pluvial period, when hnman life was .possible
in snch a district.   All the evidence went to
prove that the skull of the Pleistocene man
did not bear the ape like characteristics which
are usually attributed to it, and that the mental development  was closely akin to that of
the present day. It was agreed that there was
proof that   fossil   bones had been used for
carving and ornamentation during the 19th

It is surprising to know that a finger passing over a coin actually reduces the weight of
it. A wonderful electrical instrument known
as the induction balance proves this to be a
fact. When coins rub against each other in
people's pockets and purses, drop on a coun
ter or on the ground, and so on, they really
wear. If you "ring" a coin to test its genuineness, you remove some of the metal of which
it is composed. The smaller the value of the
coin, the greater the wear, as it is in use more
constantly. Experiments show that in a hundred years in the British mint £100 worth of
half crowns lost £13 lis. 8d. of their value.
The same sum in shillings would decrease in
value by £36 14s. Id., whereas sixpences to
the value of £100 would be worth less than
half what they were originally, losing metal
to the value of ^50 18s. 8d, The loss in coin

much worn they are withdrawn from circula -

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the laok of suoh service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
school age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tbe verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of tbe Boajd. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
provinoe, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. 4" -*-****■*****

Magnificent Specimen of Moose Head
THIS record moose head from
an animal shot in Northern
Ontario has been secured by
the Canadian National Railways to
be placed in their building at the
British Empire Exhibition in London, i'he head has been specially,
mounted for display and is one of
the finest specimens ever secured.
As far as is known only two larger
moose heads have ever been secured and one of these was presented to the late King Edward
VII, hy Canadian sportsmen.
The particulars of the head
shown in the photograph are interesting. The spread of the antlers
is 70% inches from tip to tip. The
weight of the antlers, before
mounting, was 64 pounds. The
length of the right antler from the
base of horn to the tip is 37%
inches and that of the left antler
39 inches. The width of the left
palm at the widest point is 15
inches and that of the right 14%
inches.       The points total  28  in
number, there being 14 on each
antler. The weight of the animal
was 1,400 pounds.
Before being shipped to England
the head will be displayed in thc
windows of ticket offices of thc
Canadian National Railways in
various cities. It is now on exhibition at the ticket office at the
northwest corner of King and
Yonge Sts., Toronto, where it is
attracting much attention and comment.

Ten Commandments
For the Motorist
The ten commandments of good
driving are as follows:
1. Drive on the right side of the
road; it is just as good as tbe left.
2. Slow down wben approaching
a crossroad; it is nearly as dangerous as a railroad crossing.
3. Look out for children. You
can never tell wbat tbey will do.and
you are always iu the wrong if you
bit one.
4. Try to help instead of hinder

your gooi', and he's got a lough job.
5. Be sure that your "dimmers"
really dim; it's no joke driving into
a blinding glare, as you probably

but yourself.

minister noticed that a member of

Donald—was absent from his place
in churcn oo several occasions, and
it was whispered to him that Donald was going to some other church.
Meating him one day, tbe minister
said,"Donald, I am sorry I have not
seen you in kirk for some time, and
I hsar you are going where I would
not have expected you to be going.
You are a shepherd, and bo am I,
and, naturally, I am concerned
about every member of my flock.
You would not wish your sheep
going away to other pastures tbey
don'tbelong to?"
