Victoria, April 10.—"I eee no
reason why white people in British
Columbia should bave to pay $3 80
per toD more freight fates un grain
imported (or domestic use than is
paid on grain shipped to British
Columbia porta for the consumption
of Orientals abroad," states Bremier
Oliver. He shows that while tbere
was a reduction of 17 per cent in
this connection io 192*2, still it costs
19 oents per hundred more to bring
grain into British Columbia from
the prairies for domestic use than
it costs to. ship grain for export.

states that the May revision of the

demned by Enquiry of
1917, Mr. Oliver De-

them before liim for a hearing and
invited Brown to speak first.
In the course of a lengthy harangue Brown gave the judge to
understand tbat he possessed an accurate knowledge of all the varioue
propertiss to be valued, (ind that he
was capable of dividing the estate
in a fair and equitable manner; and
by inference he intimated that
Smith was quite unable to do so.
When he had finished the judge
called on Smith to speak,but Smith
had little to say.
At the conclusion of the hearing
the arbitrator diiected Brown tn list

groups in Buch a way that tbe
groupo should be of equal value,
and tben he asked the partners to
attend the following day, when the
lists should be complete.
At the second hearing Brown wae
ready with his schedules. Judge
Begbie took them, locked them over
carefully and then with a smile
hauded tbem to Smith and told him

The Canadian Pacific Railway,

That the American Indians had an ances
try common with the Mongolian tribes of
Siberia and crossed to Alaska over the Bering sea, are conclusions of John P. Harrington
of the Smithsonian institution. Mr. Harring
ton arrived at this belief after extensive re
search on the Pacific coast. He fixes the discovery of America by the Indian at more than
20,000 years ago. Explaining his belief that
the Indians went directly to Alaska across the
Bering sea, instead of over the chain of Eleu
dan islands at a time when the islands may
have been an isthmus connecting the two continents, he says: "From a long strip of Siberian coast the Alaskan shore is in plain sighl
across the Bering straits, which at one point
is only fifty miles in width. The two small
Diomede islands also help to break the passage, This strip of water at times is frozen
over and could have been crossed either on the.
ice or in boats, which were made by the Indian at the earliest times." Mr. Harrington
discounts the theory advanced by some anthropologists that the Indians migrated from
the Polynesian islands. "From ray studies of
the Indian races of the Pacific coast I believe
that the Indians, after crossing from Siberia,
gradually spread from Alaska down the Pacific
coast and thence over all North and South
America' This is based on the singularity of
physical characteristics, the widespread occurrence of customs and myths, and an exhaustive of the languages."

Turning from the city newspapers to the
rural exchange which comes to our desk is
like stepping from the slumps fnll of vile odors
into an old fashioned garden sweet with
honeysuckle and scent of perennial flowers,
says the Lake City Tribune. The pages of the
big dailies are so full of murder, thievery, immorality, the breaking up of homes, by infi
delity and selfishness, that the better news is
obscured. One puts the paper aside with a
feeling of depression and heartache that the
world is so full of such terrible and unhappy
things. Then, picking u\> the papers that re
cord the happeuings of smaller towns around
us one gains renewed faith in life. Here are
sei forth only that which uplifts a community
—the activities of the business men, the
church news, the civic good accomplished by
the women, school items, the happy social
gatherings of the people, the marriages, births
and deaths, farmers' items, and all the thousand and one daily occurrences that make up
the simple annals of the great common people
who are really the foundation of this broad
country of ours. Scandals are seldom published in the country newspaper, but if it so
happens that decency demands it, the uglier
details are omitted, or are given a kindly
touch that is widely different from the unfeeling publicity of the city press. No wonder.
The offenders may be our neighbors, oi*-people
we have rubbed elbows with all our lives,
They are real human beings, while to the great
dailies they are merely grains of a sort that
are ground out hourly in their newsmill.

Jl'fho Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was reoently 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 tbo many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such ser«
vice, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
f (This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tbe venous provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in tbe Dominion. Nothing
bas yet been done for tbose helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New Tork City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Ar*
c(hur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one in 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 every
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 the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged

Canada will play an important part in the flrst World
Power Conference that is to be held in London.
England, from June 30th to July 12th, and this because
after the United States, she possesses greater potential
water powers than any other country and -because in
point of per capita production of electric power she
stands almost at the head of all nations, her production,
in this respect being three times greater than that of the
United States.
TV' - is rapidly becoming the electric age, a fact which
the impending Conference, which is being held under the
auspices of the British Electrical and Allied Manufacturers Association in co-operation with several of
the most technical, scientific and industrial institutions
throughout the World, emphasizes greatly. The Canadian committee consists of the leading members of the
electrical engineering profession with Dr. Charles Cam-
sell, deputy Minister of Mines as chairman.
So far as Canada is concerned the hydro-electric
development is a twentieth century development. A
quarter of a century ago there was very little hydroelectric development in Canada. In 1910 the turbine
installation of water power plants in Canada was but
965,000 h.p.; in 1915 it was 2,078,000 h.p.; in 1920 it was
2,483,000 h.p.; in 1923 it was 8,228,000 h.p. Next year
tt is expected to be 4,000,000 h.p., the indications being
that 5,000,000 h.p. will be reached by 1930.
'Canada is very fortunate in that her large«*water
powers are located comparatively close to the centres
if her industrial life.   When it comes to ability to use
r water powers she is immeasurably better off than the
;ted States, 70 per cent of the latters being in the
tern states, remote from industrial centres. Within
in* of 800 miles of the Long Sault rapids on the St
mission ate Installing an additional J5.000 h.p. during 1924.
4. Hydro-Electric Development of the Manitoba Power Company
Limited at Great Falls on the Winnipeg river, Canada. Ths
Initial Installation of 56,000 h.p. was brought Into operation
during 1923, the power Ming sold to and distributed by the
      _ jao,  xxx* pusrer ssvsssk sssj
Winnipeg Electric Railway Company Limited,
to add a third unit of 28,000 h.p. In 1924.
capacity of the plant Is 148,000 h.p.
   It is proposed
i. The ultimate designed
Lawrence river, there are available water powers exceeding 9,000,000 horse power. As it is through the
development of water power that other operations are
made cheaper, capital for it can be more readily secured,
and it is for this reason that the power producing industry
has progressed more rapidly than any other in Canada
during the past few years.
Briefly, the objects of the Power Conference are to
consider how the industrial and scientific sources of
power may be adjusted nationally and internationally;
by considering the potential resources of each country
in hydro-electric power, oil and minerals, by comparing
experiences in the development of scientific agriculture,
irrigation and transportation by land water and air;
by conferences of civil, mechanical, marine and mining
engineers; by consultation of the consumers of power
and the manufacturers of the instruments of production,
by discussion on the financial and economic phases of the
industry, by conference on the possibility of establishing
a permanent World Bureau for the collection of data, the
preparation of inventories of the world's resources and
the exchange of industrial and scientific information
through the representatives of the various countries.
It will be seen then, that the Dominion's part in the
Conference cannot be a small one and that through the
dissemination of knowledge of her resources she stands
to gain considerably. It is interesting to note in this connection that for every new power scheme which calls tot
large investment, the money comes chiefly from abroad.
Indeed it is probably that since 1918 several hundreds of
millions of dollars have been secured in this way and it is
impossible to overestimate the importance of water-

IN line with new legislation being
* passed in thc various States of the
American Union aimed to diminish
the alarming number of accident!
through reckless driving of automobiles, particularly on level railroad
crossings, the Board of Railway
Commissioners for Canada haa re-
I nested the Canadian Pacific Railway to submit information bearing
ipon similar dangerous practices by
motorists on various portion* of Hs
system so that use may be made of
the information with a view to endeavoring, through education, to
minimize the occurrence of such dangerous practices.
In a Bulletin issued by the Board
oi Railway Commissioners on June
15th, 1923, 54 cases of danger at protected crossings are cited for the
period October, 1922, to May, 1923,
and of these fifty are declared to
have been due to the carelessness of
motor drivers. "Motor accidents,"
says the bulletin, "are becoming
more frequent. Every sane motorist
deplores this. If accidents are to be
lessened, the sane motorist mutt educate the culpably negligent motorists."
All highway crossings are by law
protected by signs, and they are only
dangerous when the driver of the automobile nukes them so. They ara
not dangerous if motorists will talc*
a small part of the care they exercise
in turning on a city street. It ia the
motorist's carelessness that makes
them dangerous. The train haa right
of way. Everyone knows what may
happen if the plainly seen warnings
are disregarded at a point where tha
motor car can stop while Uie train
The surprising part ef k alto il
thai safeguards and precautions
erected by the railroads are so often
entirely ignored. Time after time
newspaper reports show that crossing alarm bells, barrier gates and
even watchmen waving "stop" sig-
lals mean nothing to the man in the
motor car who is determined to beal
the train to it.
Coroners' juries are usually more
discriminating and put the blame
where it belongs, but the general
public, seeing the usual newspaper
heading, "Train Crashes into Motor
Car," starts out with the impression
that the train must necessarily be to
blame, when, as a matter of fact, a
fairer statement of the case would
be "Another Auto Gets in Path of
Fast Train." Quite as often, too, the
heading should read, "Flying Auto
Dashes into Moving Train." Frequently the auto strikes the traia
well behind the engine, a convincing
indication that the motorist too frequently treats the railroad crossing
with the same casual notice that he
gives the intersection of a quiet
country road.
Out of 32 level crossing accident*
that happened In Ontario during
1922, 22 were the result of the motorist not heeding the stop signal, and
seven were the result of running into
the lowered gates or actually passing
under them after they were lowered
or while tfcey were being lowered.
One man had no headlights and apparently did not see the gates were
down while the remainder in other
ways tried to cross in front of the
engine In order to save time.
In an editorial on this question, th*
Toronto Star says that: "In a country like this, with its magnificent dit-
tanees, and railway systems with
twenty thousand miles of track, th*
time may never come when all level
crossings will be eliminated. With
motor cars in use everywhere there
is no railway crossing so remote but
that a motorist may use It. It is hit
business to sec that he does so at a
safe moment. It is his business for
two reasons: (1) because h is the
presence of him and his car at that
time and place, and not the coming
of the train, which creates the risk of
a crash) and (2) because if there
should be a crash he and his car will
be crushed, and aot th* train."
