Victoria, Dec. 6.—Determined to
secure for this province the sob-
right to import liquor, Attorney-
General A. M. Manson has again
moved a resolution asking tbe legislature to petition Ottawa to grant
this request. The mini'ter lakes
the stand that at the last session of
the federal house, if it had not been
for the onpotitioa of British Column
bia senators, legislation would have
been passed at Ottawa giving this
provinca complete control of tbe importation and sale of liquor.
Hon. Mr. Manson assured the
house that bootlegging had been
put dowu 75 per cent during the
past siXjiuonibs, chiefly as the
result of the government's action in
eliminating mauy of the export
warehouses ' He maintains that
bootlegging can be all but abolished
if the province secures control of
importation. Last year tbe house
was unanimous in ihis respect, and
it is expected that the attorneys
general will receive full support for
tbe resolution.
The government haB decided to
take off the bounties paid on all
predatory animals and birds except
coug.us, timber wolves aud coyotes.
As a result of tbis action $10,000
will be saved in a year by toe game

curing a return from the destruction
of tbe crow will have to seek some
other form of amusement and profit)
Attorney-General Maoeon has announced that a new policy in re-
gardB to prisons is under consideration by the government He told
the legislature that the whole trend
of modern tunes was not to regard a
prison at a place of punishment but
as an institution of correction, s.nd
that steps were to be taken which
should show a decided improvement
wilbin a sbo.! time. I lis pi ins will
result in turoingOakallu prison-farm

The provincial potato fair closed
on Saturday night, after altracting
big crowds for three days The fair
may be said to bave been a complete success both from its exhibits
of potatoes and potato products and
from an educational standpoint as
regards tbe information disseminated in tbe various addresses on potato oulture.
Saturday evening C. Tice, who
was in charge of the fair, gave an
address in the opera house hall to
a large audience oo the diseases of
the potato plant and the tubers, and
A. J. Grant, British Columbia markets c mmissi mer on the -prairies,
closed the lecture course by reviewing tbe market conditions during
the past season. Both speakers
made appreciative allusions to lhe
hearty cooperation given tbe fair by
the organizations of the city and the
citizens of tbe community generally
This support, tbey said, bad been a
big contributory factor in making
success of the fair.

CO far as known, the first gram
*J (-rop ever grown in what ii now
tho Provinoe of Alberta, was in the
Peace River country. Thia was in
1809. Daniel W. Harmon, fn charge
of the Northwest Company's post at
Dtinvegan, records in his diary that
in that year on July 21st, he cot his
"I think it is the finest," he wrote,
"ttiat I have ever seen in any country. The soil on the points of land
along this river are excellent."
Harmon's opinion as to the possibilities of the country was supported
by traders and travellers who followed. Professor John Macoun was the
first scientific explorer to study H
thoroughly. In a book published
in 1882 he stated that "the vegetation throughout thc whole Peace
River valley is of the most luxuriant
character, and it 9eems more like
that of the tropics than of a country
drawing near the Arctic circle." But
when the Province of Alberta was
formed, ninety-six years after Harmon made thc entry quoted from his
diary, there was less than five hundred acres under crop in the whole
area of 115,000 square miles, included
in the drainage basin of the river.
The Edmonton Dunvegan anrl
British Columbia and Central Canada
railways were built in the early years
of the European war. The, mileage
from Edmonton to the town of Peace
Rivr is 311 and to Grande Prairie

thc C.P R. look over the operation
of die?' lines, that a satisfactory service was assured, and the settlers
were given sufficient confidrffce t->
enlarge t: ■.■ Tr operations.
In that year, according lo the fig
ures of the Alberta Department pf
Agriculture, there were produced in
the provincial constituency of Peace
River the following quantities of
grain: Spring wheat, 1,495,680 bush-
ell, an average yield per acre of
30.34; winter wheat, 15,107, an average of 16.26; oats, 4,334,400, an average of 40.22; barley, 323,400, an average of 22.42; rye, 40,092, an average
of 43.81. Harmon's judgment was
thus wed vindicated after 111 years.
It Should not be forgotten that Hs
mineral and timber wealth may yet
be shown to equal its agricultural.
For over a century it hat been a rich
fur producer and many farmert add
considerably to their revenue by trapping hi their spare time.
Dr. I '•. M . Dawson, when assistant
director of the geological survey,
made an estimate that in the Peace
River territory there was at least
23,500 square miles of land suitable
to agriculture. The acreage sown
to various grains in 1920 in the coon-
try immediately tributary to thc river
was under 175,000. Estimates that
have been made since have not reduced his figure, so it is evident that
there is plenty of opportunity for new
settlement. He calculated, that if
all thc land available for cultivation
were sown to wheat and yielded
twenty bushels to the acre (ten bush
els less than the average yield for
1920) the total production would be
300.80n.000 bushels — more than all
western Canada produced in wheal
in 1921. As high as 69 bushels oi
Marquis wheat per acre has been
obtained as (ar north as Fort Ver

River, and 500 beyond Edmonton

In the growing season the freet
danger fa) not great. In thirty yean
in the Fort Vermilion farm, only
twice haa there been frost damage,
and then the lott wat far from
complete. The display of flowers
and vegetables at that far northern
point can be equalled at few points
in the Canadian weat. The long
dayi hasten everything to maturity,
and harvest begins abont the middle
of August. IV average precipitation it between twelve and thfrteeen

The charm which the country possessed for atl who traversed it in tho
dayi when it wat stall "the wild
northland," the thle which Sh- Wfl-
liara Butler gave h in the seventies,
still holds for those wbo panne more
prosaic tasks than hia. To journey

Chutes, seven hundred miles downstream—there being no obstacle ta
navigation between the points)—is an
experience never to be forgotten,
At Dunvegan thc banks are nine
hundred feet high, gradually lowering as the river broadens. At tbs
Chutes it is dose to a mile and a
half across.
It is a waterway along which a
very large population mutt some day
find prosperity and contentment.

last few years makes it certain thnt

L. E. Taylor and Major Herman,
of tbe growers' coin uittes,Kelowna
who have been studying tbe fruit
market situation ou lbe prairies,
addressed a large audience of local
growers iu tbe Empress theater
Monday afternoon, «nd told tbem
the only cure for the present de-
moralixatiou of prices was a prov*
iuce-wide cooperative organisation
embracing 90 per cent af lho growers,
which meant 100 per ceut strong in
the older districts.
Thechaiiman, H. E. Woodland,
first called on H. VV. Collins, who
has just returned from the prsiria
Mr. Collins said he bsd spent a
month on the prairies, and during
that time bad traveled over branch
lines as well as over maiu lines. He
bad found retailers and consumers
everywhere in favor of f o.b. prices
being set on fruit for a pariod of
years. Mr. Collins thought tbat
•1 for No.3's, $1.26 for No. *.•** aod
$1.50 for No. l's as the standard
price for a number of years wuuld
be a fair proposition, s tbe growers
bavt to get away from tbe idea Of
obtaining fancy prices. Mr. Collius
gave a splendid acoount of bis ; rip
aud discussed many interesting subjects.
L. E. Taylor thoroughly reviewed
the prairie market. He made the
assertion tbat lownpriced fruit curtailed consumption. He also stated
tbat jobbers do not waot a market
on a consignment basis, and tb .t it
was impracticable to sell direct to
ths ret filers His condemnation of
the consignment system waa sV'verx
aod merited. Concerning the shipment of fruit, be said in mv -. , >

Major Harman outlined the principles of a oew cooperative association to embracing tbe entire province of British Columbia, 100 per
cent strong. Hie direct manner of
Bpeakingsouuded rather bolshevikic
aud was uot greatly reli'hed hv

At a meeting of tbe growers io tbe
evening it was decided to send delegates to a convention to be held in

other valid argument, it might become a veri

The Ku Klux Klan is reported to be endeavoring to gain a foothold in British Oolum-
bia. Very few people approve of the Klan's
methods of doing business, nevertheless law-
abiding citizens wouldn't mind if the petty
larceny artists operating in most communities
were cleaned up.
Whatever system may finally be adopted in
regard to fruit markating in future will have
to receive the unanimous support of the growers of the entire province. Otherwise it will
prove ineffective. The plan advocated by the
speakers on Tuesday after mon is an extension
of the Okanagan United Growers' present
system by embracing 90 per cent ofthe British
Columbia growers. It does not disturb any of
the present middlemen. Nor has any ment:on
been made about high-sBlaried officers of the
sales department.
H. W. Collins, of this cuy, has also put a
proposition before tho growers. Briefly, his
plan is for the growers of the entire province
cooperate to the extent of sotting f.o.b. prices
at shipping points for a number of years, and
then allow each district to send out its own
salesmen. This would eliminate some of the
middlemen; bring the producer in contact
with consumer, and assure the latter fruit at
a purchasable price even in short crop years.
The price at the shipping point being known
to the consumer, he could easily determine
vhete the blame lay in the event of being
ivercharged. And the producer knowing what
:ie was going to get, could aaratige his affairs
ncordingly. The scheme looks pretty good,
■t id would undoubtedly take some idle hands

Irish and Canadian
The sphere of influence of Canadiau poets
is spreading.   United India and Indian States
has the following review of the above men
tioned book:
This anthology is an elegant tribute paid by
an Irishman to the grandeur and natural
beauty of his motherland, and also is a splendid compliment to the glorious scenery of the
Land of the Maple Leaf, his adopted home,
The poems in the book deal with the diversity
of subjects and cover a very vast field. What
ever theme is taken up, whether it is the de
scription of a scene or the expression of a
sentiment, whether it is a tender tribute to the
valor of a friend, living or dead, or a retro
spective narrative of h § own early school
days, the poet's facile and graphic pen strikes
a fine chord. Mr. Hargadon is a born poet,
full of love, piety, patriotism and faith and
sympathy, and his poems abound with freshness and sunshine. The language and the
metre used are so simple and easy in flow that
even a schoolboy could follow them with
pleasure and enjoyment. We cull a few lines
that appeal to us as being of outstanding
merit, sentiment and simplicity.
In Tbe Hero,the poet pays a handsome tribute to one of his dear friends, Captain the
Hon. A. Shaughnessy, who was killed in
France on March 31, 1916:
We grieve for the hero who grieved uot to part
With his life for the cause that was dear to his heart;
i ian is entitled to the Credit   of  recognizing  But few be our tears! for he takes the oommand
■', i inevitable in Siberia and in abandoning a
in .itaristic adventure that sooner or later
.v..uld have led to open war. It now remains
tn be seen* whether the nations of the wofId
w il recognize the Far Eastern republic. It is
oVu-ly the de facto authority iu all eastern
Siberia, and, though its relations with Moscow
aiv, such as to prejudice some governments
against it, it seems to be accepted by its own
po iple and to be conducting affairs in a fairly
un upetent way.

I'hat British Columbia apples have captured
a 1 irge part of the Ontario market is not due
ei ier to their superiority or to the perversity
of ohe ultimate buyer, says the Toronto Globe,
but simply to the fact that they are displayed
mure conspicuously and in a more attractive
way. The best Ontario apples are of finer
Ha rov than the best British Columbia fruit,
but the Ontario apple is not pushed forward
like its competitor, and the result is that the
latter has the advantage, in spite of the draw -
buck of cost of transportation for soveral
thousand miles. It is not merely high color
tliat attracts the buyer. Ho prefers to purchase
b/ the box than by the barrel. In buying
s nealler quantities by the peck or measure
there is a risk that the apple may be wormy
or otherwise defective. Probably our best and
most carefully selected fruit is exported and
the grower may be satisfied with the export
market, and be comparatively little concerned
about the market at home. But there is no
use in blaming the ultimate consumer for not
buying that which is so seldom offered. Any
fruit dealer who chooses to make a specialty
for the native product will speedily find plenty
of customers.

Louie Harlow, Micmac Indian

canoe with a birch bark horn pressed

Ugh!" wai the Imitation of the
grunt of a little bull, and the combination was designed to fool a big
male and cause him to appear without unnecessary delay.
Long before the radio was heard
of, Nova Scotia guides were broadcasting a moose love song with intent to lure the lordly.moose within
range of the hunters rifle. Louie
Harlow, of South Milford, N.S., is
the wiaard of this wilderness wire-
leas, end he ntes no complicated apparatus. He cuts a likely scroll of
berk from a white birch, rolls it into
megaphone form, length about a

Philadelphia.—The Canadian Pacific Railway hae opened its new
offices here in the Cross Building at
the corner of Locust and 15th
Streets. Growth of the company's
business and the gradual movement
of the city's most important business institutions in this direction
were responsible for this move into
larger quarters in the heart of the
hotel, theatre and business district.
The offices which have been handsomely fitted, accommodate both
freight aid passenger officials on
Canadian Pacific rail and ocean
lines, as well as representatives of
the Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault
and the Duluth, South Shore and
Atlantic Railways.
London, Oat—This year the Cana-
dian Pacific Railway has arranged
to hold weekly first aid classes at
London throughout the entire year
and the instruction will bs furnished
by the employees themselves, many
who have become very proficient in
first aid work.
By this means those employees
who have had previous instruction
can drop into ths classes from time
tn time and refresh themselves on
the instruction, while ths new employees, especially those in train
and engine service, whese duties
may require them to be absent from
the classes one week, will have the
opportunity of taking the instruction later on as ths classes will continue throughout the year. E. T.
Wright, C. P. R. storekeeper at London, is chairman ia charge of the
committee, which is looking after the
formation of first aid classes on the
London division.
killed or lured to the rifle a*™
moose than any other guide in Nova
Scotia. Louie is a half-breed Micmac and opines that his other half
is Scotch. He was born at Bear
River on the Indian reservation, and
has worked as a guide under A. D.
Thomas of South Milford for 23
years. Swarthy of complexion, with
a black moustache and straight black
hair, he resembles an Indian less
than his own son, but is master of
Indian woodcraft. He can hear a
moose moving in the woods when
his companions hear nothing, and is
the first to sight a moose or deer
swimming the lake or standing on
the shore. "A moose in ten days,
or less" is Louie Harlow's motto,
and lt is said that he has never yet
disappointed a sportsman who can
shoot. Louie's siren song will fool
thc wisest old bull in the woods, but
when he comes within range the
hunter must do the rest.
Five of the most popular sporting
writers of the United States this autumn spent ten days with Harlow
and his brother guides in Nova Scotia. They had been reporting the
world's series baseball games, and
welcomed the quiet of thc woods and
the rest it brought. They were new
to the woods, but they came out with
a fair share of moose heads, and
voted thc trip the best holiday they
ever had,
Although there is a vast area ol
beautiful country In Nova Scotia
along the western and southern
shores particularly, including the
famous Land of Evangeline, the interior is the moose hunter's paradise.
There are miles upon miles of lakes,
rivers, and forests well populated by
moose, deer, bear, and smaller animals. A favorite approach to this
region is through South Milford,
easily reached via Annapolis Royal,
N.S., by way of Boston and Yarmouth, N.S., or St. John. N.B., and
Digby, N.S. The ride from Digby
and Annapolis Royal on thc Dominion Atlantic Railway to South Milford is by automobile, and from
South Milford, the hunter or fisher
man, with a few portages, ran paddle
in a canoe three-quarters of the way
across Nnva Scotia to the Atlantic
Ocean. The moose season lasts from
October 1 to November 15, starting
vith moose calling and ending with
still hunting. A dozen guides, among
them such celebrities as Louie Harlow and Sam Olode, bolh Micmac
Indians, work under the direction of
A. D. Thomas along the shores of
the Liverpool chain of lakes, Kedge-
makoogec and beyond. Nova Scotia
is conserving its moose—a hunter is
limited to one bull a year—and the
moose country will always be good
moose country because thal's about
all it is good for, except trout fishing.

For some time there has bean
daily reports from tha C. P. R. of
destruction to cars and fixtures by
youngsters who run wild through
the yards and use the cars for playing hide and seek. The most serious accusations were laid against
hoys who were caught throwing
stones at passing trains, endangering the lives of travellers. Judge
i.'hoqnet gave a warning that he
(vould hold the parents responsible
fo th- acts of vandalism by children. When he had fifteen case*
prepared for court he carried out
ills warning by making the parents
pay the costs of the damages incurred. '

bank whether the water was
deep. "No," replied the boy,
and the rider started to cross.

When he finally reached the
