Victoria, January 23 —Tremen
doue strides are being made in the
lumbering and allied iniluslrrs in
British Columbia. Hon J D. Mac-
Lean, acting minip.t-r ol lande, Announces that the t')Ul timber t>c*le
for the yesr 1923 waa 2 642,280,000
board feet, an increase of nearly 34
per cent over 1922, when tbe scale
amounted to 1,899,158,000 bonrd
feet. Vanoouver district scaled I,
906,103,360 feet, or more tban tbe
amount for the whole province in
1922. An inore-.se of 60 per cent
wae made in the Priuce Rupert district for the year.
Lumbering is by far the most im-*
portant industry in iho province,
and through the following of sane
bonservation methods and fire pre.
vention, ae adopted by tbe department of lands, tbe timber resources
of British Columbia are nearly inexhaustible. Tbis province is estimated to bave four hundred billion
feet of standing timber, witb an annual increase through growth alone
of eight billion feet. Tbe capacity of
tbe sawmills is about tbree billion
feet, wbile a certain amount of
timber is destroyed each year
though fire. But the timber cut
and burned does not represent more
tban half the natural increase.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 25,   1924
In an endeavor to safeguard mo
torists and pedestrians, Attorney
General Manson announces a new
regulation a8ecting tbe use of spot
lights on motor vehicles. Tbe new
regulation reads:
"No motor yebicle shall be
ebuipped witb mdre tban one spot
ligbt and the beam of light therefrom
when sucb motor vehicle is io motion, must always be directed to tbe
right of tbe medial length line, und
rhe beam of ligbt from the said
spotlight shall strike the ground on
the right band side of the vehicle on
which th3 spotlight is mounted at
a distance not exceeding 100 feet in
front of tbe vehicle."
Determined to keep hie pledge
and eliminate the proprietary beer
olub, Attorney General Manson,with
the government, has taken tbe first
steps in this direction. A new regu
lation has been paesed relating to
applications for club licenses and
tbe forms call for tbe fullest information from all applicants. It is
understood tbat there will be few
licenses grauted and tbese will only
be well organized clubs, carried on
Strictly along old lines; that is.clubs
existing for tbe purpose of serving
meals and providing sleeping accomodations.
The attorney general's intention
is to kill tne club operated for pri
Tate gain. All applicants will be
required to state what purposes the
olub is operated for, giving date of
incorporation, ipformation regarding the premises, the number of
rooms furnished for bedrooms and
the number of meals served. A
balance sheet will be required,showing profits for 1923, as well as a
copy of the olub constitution and
Annual Meeting of the
B. G.  Division of the
Canadian Institute of
Mining and Metallurgy
Arrangements in connection with
the annual general meeting uf the
British Colombia division of tbe
Canadian Institute of Mining and
Metallurgy.in tbe Hotel Vancouver,
Vancover, on February 18, 14 and
15, bave now been completed, and
an excellent program has been prepared. All the subjects to be discussed at the technical sessions ere
of timely iiiteres' and involve considerations in which, tbe general,
public is equally concerned with
those directly engaged in. the min*
in-- industry iu tbe province.
The   mat-rial welfare of   British
Columbia  is   largely dependent on
the prosperity of tbe mining industry. All will agree that  everything
possible should  be done to ensure
tbat genera conditions   sball be as
conducive as they can be made to
an uninterrupted   and  progressive
expansion of the industry.   Certain
existing economic   aod  Industrial
oonditipos are exerting a retarding
effect   oo   our    mining   industry
These unfavorable conditions may
be removed or at least ameliorated.
Ways and means in otber directions
of   stimulating   progress need constantly to be explored. The promotion   of   tbe   welfare of tbe mining
industry is thc- principal purpose of
tbe  Canadian   Institute of Mining
and Metallurgy as  set forth in ite
charter. In keeping with this pur
pose, attention  at the forthcoming
meeting will be mainly   directed to
a survey of industrial conditions as
affecting   mining in the province,
witb   a   view   to their betterment.
The subjects to be immediately considered are included under   the respective heads of, "Conditions   Favorable and Unfavorable to Mining
in British Columbia,"  "The   Die
abilities of the Coal Minsng in British  Columb a  and Possible Remedies," "Tbe Possibilities for an Iron
and   Steel Industry in British Columbia." and "Research fn Connec

At the Summerland experimental
station the permanent trees in the
apple orchard were planted thirty
feet apart eacb way, making forty-
eight trees to the acre. Between
these permanent trees an equal num
ber of fillers or temporary trees were
planted. The orchard is only eight
years old, but the fillers are already
crowding tbe permanent trees to
such an extent that it bas been decided to remove tbe temporary trees
without further delay. Tbe yields
secured from these fillers to date
may be of some interest to apple
growers. Tbe varieties used were
Jonathan, Wagner, Cox's Orange,

Tbe total yield of eacb variety for

recommondations for better road
construction and in turn were in-
structen by finance department
officials as to the best method of securing the fullest returns for every

J. M. Hilton, of Kershaw, South

the tomato with a common plant
known as the Jimpson weed, and
from tbe "cross" has obtained bushes
bearing crops of tomatoes as wholesome and palatable as those grown
on tbe tomato vine and having a
more solid and finer grained meat.
The Jimpson weed is botb blight
and drought resistant, and if toma*-

Canada's fisheries' production during 1923 is estimated to be worth
$40,000,000. At the beginning of the
year it was not thought that anything like this mark would be reached, for Mm Fordney tariff had cut

States. But as tha year wore on ths
demand and prices generally improved, thus giving fishermen along
the Atlantic coast especially a much
bettor market.

The Pacific Great
Eastern Enquiry
Attorney General Manson says it
will be another week before he has
completed plans for the royal commission to enquire into the affairs of the
Pacific Qreat Eastern railway and the
Northern Construction company; also
charges made by the Provincial party
against Hon. William Sloan, minis
ter of mines, and W. J. Bowser, K.
C, leader of the opposition.
Mr. Manson has not gone all
through the mass of material which
might come before the commission
and declares that while the enquiry
will be thorough, he has no intention
of submitting extraneous matters,
which would have no bearing upon
theissuA and only lead to useless sittings at a heavy cost to the public.
Little is heard in   political   circles,
but discussions   of the investigation, i
Adherents of the third party are hop (
ing against hope that "something will
happen," but tbe feeling is growing
Canada in 1923 produced more
coal, lead, cobalt and asbestos than
during any other year since mining
records have been kept. The output
of coal waa in the neighborhood of
17,300,000 tons, or 685,000 tons hotter than the best previous record,
ai d 2,000,000 tons over that in 1922.
Thc output of copper, nickel, cement
and asbestos was also much above
tbat for the preceding years. Gold
production was down somewhat, but
this was due more to a power shortage than anything else.
As a result of efforts on the part
of Hon. J. A. Robb, Minister of Immigration and Colonization, a 20 per
cent, preference rate on Atlantic
passages for all British immigrants
settling in Canada has been ar-
langed to come into effect on March
1 and continue until the end of the
main immigration season at the end
of November. It will apply only
to British immigrants coming direct
to Canada from the British Isles,
and will affect all Unas coming to
Canadian Atlantic ports.
Three delightful cruises havo been
awarded to agents of the Canadian

Notes, Notions and Notables
A number of our proviaoial oxclian^es are
anxious to learn what a "piker" is. AcoojrJ •
ing to our dictionary, a pike is a very long-
lived fish. A piker must therefore be a fisher,
or fisherman. Peter was a fisherman before
he became a disciple and a piker (of which he
quicdly repeated) at the trial of Christ. We
hope this information will satisfy our contemporaries' craving for knowledge.

are patches of moist, clayey ground, fenced
separated by little water canals and provided
with bushes and shrubbery for protection

on lettuce and other green stuff. Fruits and
aromatic herbs are sometimes fed them to impart a special flavor to the flesh. Paris is the

A race of white Indians with flaxen hair is
said to have been discovered in the almost
impenetrable forests of eastern Panama. The
story comes from an eminent explorer just returned from territory hitherto untouched by
Europeans. He says: "I was in a native village when I noticed three girls passing into
the jungle. They had bodies as light as a sunburned white girl, and decidedly light hair. I
was told they belonged to a white race living
living up the Chucanaque river. The gegroes
told me these whites all had light-brown or
yellow hair and were wild and warlike The
skin of the girls' faces was tanned, but free
from that colored pigment so distinguishable
in all brown and darker races. The features of
the eldest girl were of a high oval face, thin
lips, well shaped chin and uquiline nose. They
spoke no Spanish."
A good story is told of an encounter between liudyard Kipling and Sir James Barrie.
Both were starting on a railway journey, and
Kjpling was in need of light literature, The
time was short, but racing round a corner he
collided with Sir J. M Barrie, armed with a
sheaf of magazines. According to Barrle
Kipling seized the magazines, flung him some
money and rushed away. Barrie told some of
his friends that Kipling had not flung half
enough, when this story was recently told to
St. Andrews stndonts the audience roared
with laughter, in which Kipling joined. In
reply he assured the guests that he never
robbed Barrie of anything. "He is too rich in
all the things that count for that to be possible," said Mr. Kipling.
A heavily capitalized syndicate has been
formed to recover a huge meteor supposed to
have fallen millions of years ago in Dene's canyon, Ariz. For miles round the district is plas
tered with meteoric fragments, such as might
be thrown off from some giant meteorite in its
fall, while a peculiar sort of dust, which the
Indians count as sacred, is probably the pow
dor of the rocks and mountains crushed by
the impact. Meteorites are known to contain
certain quantities of valuable metals, and in
one oi the size that must have fallen in Arizona there, may be almost anything! It is
therefore conceivable that there lies buried in
the wilds of the Indian couutiy the largest
treasure on earth, a gift from another world.
The syndicate is prepared to spend, a lot of
money to find out.

According to report a donkey of the ordinary four legged variety was responsible in
1905 for the location of the celebrated Tukh
el-Karamus treasure, ofthe Ptolemaic period,
now among the Cairo Museum's most prized
possessions. The donkey, trotting along a
road, stumbled and smashed with its hoof the
mouth of a great earthenwure jar just projecting above the soil. A number of gold vessels
were scattered about the road, and the peasant who was riding the donkey, on descending
to the ground, found that the jar was literally
crammed with marvellous statuettes, trinkets
and the like, in gold and silver. By rare good
fortune, as he was stealing away with part of
the booty, he was intercepted by the local native assistant inspector, and eventually the
whole of the treasure was recovered.

The Objects of thi • Institution, for which Incorporation was reoently ob -
tained, are: "To provide a Some and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance* to Save the Lives of
even a few of tbe m -sny of such unfortunates, who, for the laok of suoh ser«
vice, perish every yd ir; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
school age with nor nal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the various 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 first home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work.- In England, some time ago, Sir Ar-
-(hur Pearson organized "Sunshine House,V 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 the Boajd. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from evdry
province, 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 tbe Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

Newsprint production in Canada
-for the?eleven months of 1928 ending in November was 1,166,226 tons,
as compared with 993,988 tons for
the same period in 1922, the increase
fceing equal to 17 per cent. The
estimated production ior ths year ia
1,270,000 tons, or 189.000 tons over
that for 1922.
The value of Canada's 1928 grain
crop ts estimated by ths Dominion
Bureau of Statistlos at 1892,572,300.
Of this total approximately $460,000
is credited to the three prairie provinces. It is interesting to note that
while the figures for Manitoba and
Saskatchewan are below those of the
year 1922, those of Alberta are above
er over $45,000,000.
Grain marketed along the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1923 totalled
187,642,224 bushels, an increase of
88,824,619 bushels over any similar
period in the railway's history. The
Increase ln bushels shipped was 18,-
086,730, or 9.2 por cent over 1922,
•nd 88.1 per cant of the total amount
marketed had been shipped by December 8rd.
Government statistics estimate the
apple crop of Canada for 1923 at
10,794,600 boxes, which, at an estimated average of $2 a box, makes
the value a little over $21,000,000.
By provinces the estimated production was as follows: Nova Scctla,
6,250,000 boxes; British Columbia,
8,124,000; Ontario, 2,275,000; Que-
fcec, 110,000; and New Brunswick,

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. The 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. by 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 tbe
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
waa 1,400 pounds.
Before being shipped to England
the head will be displayed in the
windows of ticket offices of the

tional Railways,
one of his first
acts was to put
into motion machinery for aiding in the colonization and ile
velopment of Canada, particularly
along the lines of
the National System. He realized
that one of the
crying needs of
Canada was for
toore population.,
and he has since
been quoted, on
several occasions
as saying that if
Canada had a
population of
twenty-five mil
Ion people, Canada would have-
no railway problem.
The    organ iza
tion of a depart- 	
ment to look after colonization and
development was entrusted by Sir
Henry to Mr. W. D. Robb, Vice-
President, and Mr. Robb at once
proceeded to build up the necessary
organization to look after this most
important national work, investigations, conferences and careful
planning gradually brought into
being an effective department, the
effort of the year culminating in
the engagement of Dr. W. J. Black,
Deputy Minister of Immigration
and Colonization in the Federal
Government, as Manager of the
Colonization and Development Department of the Canadian National
Railways, with headquarters in
London, England. That was early
in the Fall of 1923. Dr. Black proceeded at once to Great Britain,
where he spent some weeks carrying out a series of investigations.
These completed, he returned to
Canada and a general conference
of all officers of the department
was called and a definite plan of
colonization and development was
drawn up and announced. This
was the first definite announcement
on immigration to be announced
in Canada.
Dr. Black's Career
In engaging Dr. Black, the Canadian National Railways secured
an officer who is probably better
acquainted with the immigration
needs of Canada, and the best
methods of remedying those needs,
than any other man in the country. All his life he has been connected with the argricultural industry and has run the gauntlet of
all its intricate phases. He was
born and brought up on a farm in
Dufferin County, Ontario, and in
1902 graduated from the Ontario
Agricultural College with a Toronto University degree. At his
graduation he was appointed editor of the "Farmers' Advocate,"
Winnipeg, Manitoba, and he held
this post for two years. In 1905
he joined the Government of Manitoba as Deputy Minister of Agriculture, a post which he left the
following year to became President
of the Manitoba Agricultural College. He remained in this important position until 1916, when he became Commissioner of Agriculture
for Canada. At the conclusion of
the Great War in 1918, Dr. Black
was appointed Chairman of the
Soldiers' Settlement Board of Canada, a position he held until his
appointment, in 1921, aa Deputy
Minister of Immigration and
Colonization for Canada.
lasting and genuine enthusiasm
into his work, and
as a quiet but eloquent and convincing speaker
he is well fitted
to broadcast the
message of hia
important mission.
The Poliey.
There are seven
points to the programme  which
has  received the
approval   of   Sir
Henry W. Thornton, and the principles   of   policy
will be placed into
effect    immediately.   Dr. Black
sailed   for   England    again    on
January 5th, and
on Mb arrival in
London   his   department   commenced   to function
actively.   The thorough character
of the policy can be judged from a
recapitulation of the  seven principles, which are as follows:
1—To influence the immigration
and satisfactory settlement in
Canada of the largest possible
number of people of productive
capacity that the country can
absorb and assimilate.
2~To contribute to the dissemination of information concerning the vast and extensive natural resources of the Dominion and the widespread opportunities for industrial development, so that capital may be
attracted from other countries
and invested where enterprises
will be legitimately rewarded.
3*—To promote the land settlement of new Canadians under
conditions that will ensure the
maximum possibility of success in their farming operations, and enable them to enjoy such social and religious
institutions as are necessary to
individual happiness and contentment.
^—To encourage improvement in
agriculture, that more diversified methods may be employed
in farming, and that crop,
livestock, and dairy production
may be increased in accordance with market demands and
g—To assist by organized effort
in the immigration of young
people of desirable type anil
character, especially . from
Great Britain, and in their
placement in respectable rural
homes where they may become
qualified to participate in constructive activities and acquire
citizenship of distinct value to
g—To aid in the development of
new opportunities for service
and to facilitate every effective
means of selecting immigrants
physically fit anti anxious for
7—To co-operate with the Federal
and Provincial Governments
and business organizations
throughout   the Dominion   in
firomoting all measures catenated to contribute toward an
increase in immigration of
adaptable people, and in their
settlement under the most
favorable conditions possible.
