Special Correspondence of Tlie Sun.
Viotoria, Nov. 29.- Another sample of legislation passed by the
Oliver government giving power to
women, is tbat providing tbat worn*
en may be members of a jury. Al*
though certain'members ofthe house
thought it unwise to permit, or aak,
women to serve in this way, it is
the aim of the administration to
treat men and women voters alike.
Speaking as an independent member of the legislature last Friday,
Major R. J. Burde defended tbe
government against the opposition
in regard to the activities of the den
partment of industries. He said that
as a member of tbe advisory council
he had nad a voice in the granting
of every loan, and it sbould be re"
membered that of the 1000 applications received only 77 had been
favorably considered. The major regretted that the money available for
loans had run out when tl,000,000
had been advauced, and declared
that unsual conditions had existed
when the new department was established. This action wbb taken as
the result of requests of returned
men, and he said if the entire mils
lion loaned were lost for the sake of
having relieved that situation the
money could be considered well
While the government has signified its intention to proceed with the
constrauction of new buildings for
the University of British Columbia,
a certain amount of dissatisfaction
bas been expressed by Premier Oliver aod some of his supporters over
tbe necessity for the government
providing money for higher educa*
tion when tbe municipalities are
repeatedly turning down money
bylaws for tbe needs of public
schools. The staud is taken, however, tbat tbe Institution is provincial in its nature, and t.>at all sec-1
tions of British Columbia will bene*
fit through the provision of adequate university facilities.
One of tbe outstanding features of
the present session of the legislature
ia tbe criticism of oppostion members of government policy, and tb e
subsequent pricking of tbese bubbles, Recently Canon Hinohliffe, of
Victoria, objected to tbe use of a
certain textbook on history being
used in tbe university, because the
book was not considerate enough of
Canadians wbo participated in the
war. Hon. Dr. MacLean, minister
of eduoation, declared tbis was
typical of tbe unfairness of opposi-
tion members, wbo might be better
occupied in looking after the general
interests of the province. Tbe texts
book referred to was only one of 67
used in the university, and tbe
teaching of history was in Che bauds
of Prof. Eastman, a Canadian by
birth, who had served overseas, and
two assisting professors with enviable war records.
British Columbia needs selected
settlers, was tbe contention of Mra.
Mary Ellen Smith, woman repre
sentative in the legislature from
Vancouver. Sbe spoke of tbe grlat
need of filling up tbe waste places
of the pr vines with settlers of
British birth, and said that tbe
greatest advances made by Canada
came aB the result of the activities
of the Laurier government in promoting immigration. Tbe government should not hesitate to pursue
an aotive policy, so tbat the hunn
dreds of thousands of acres of farm*
lands in British Columbia awaiting
for development might be occupied
by contented citizens.
A strong defence of tbe agricultural policy of tbe government was
legislature Friday by
Hon. E. D. Barrow, bead of that
department He spoke chiefly of
soldier settlement areas and the
criticism of opposition members regarding tbe appointment of Colonels
Davies and Latta to tbe land settle'
ment board. Tbe fact was, be contended, tbat tbese men were eminently fitted for their work and had
achieved splendid success in settling
veterans upon the land.

Government Not Warranted to Spend People's Money to Hold

Victoria, Nov. 29.—"The government has not the slightest intention of bringing in a beer clause,"

"How about a plebiscite!" he
was asked.
"My answer to that iB the same
as I gave several weeks ago, 1 can
not see where the government is
warranted in spending 8100,000 of

Free Distribution
of Seed Grain
A free distribution of superior
sorts of grain will be made during
the coming winter to Canadian
farmers by the cereal division of the
experimental farms branch, Ottawa.
The Bamples will consist of spring
wheat, about five pounds; white
oats, about four pounds; barley,
about five pounds; field peas, not
garden peas, about five pounds;
field beans, abont two pounds; flax
for seed and flax for fibre about twu
Tbe cereal division of the experimental farms branch has improved many of the old varieties of
grain and introducad many new
varieties. The best of them have
been mnlliplied and propagated under direct supervision of responsible
officers on the experimental farms
both east and west. This seed will
form the bulk stock from which tbe
varionB samples will be taken. Tbe
seed is therefore the purest and best
tbat is obtainable. Of some of the
more recent introductions there is
ouly s limited supply, so it would
be advisable to apply as soon aB
possible for these.
Among the grains for distribution
will be found the Liberty bullous
oat, an oat that is excellent for human use, and to a limited extent
for young livestock. Among the
wheats, the most outstanding for
distribution will be the Ruby wheat,
a wheat tbat ripens from eight to
ten days earlier than Marquis and
is suitable for districts were Marquis iB not early enougb. This year
among the barleys will be found
Charlottetown No. 80. This is a
two-rowed barley lhat has a tendency to drop its a woe. The supply
of tbis variety is very limited. We
hope also to distribute Himalayan
barley, a bulless variety wbich is a
good yielder and suitable for young
livestock. There will be only one
variety of peas for distribution,
namely, Mackay Ostawa 25, whicli
is a main crop pea and nut suited
districts wbere early frosts occur.
The object of the distribution is
twofold: first, tbat tbe farmer may
get a small sample of good seed to
start bis seed plot; second, that the
cereal division may find out bow
tbeir improved grains will behave
under various conditions of soil and
climate. Therefore it is necessary
that all the information asked for on
the application form should be fully
answered. This also holds true witb
the report forms which each man is
asked to fill outi
Applications must be made on a
printed form wbich will be supplied
by the cereal division, experimental
farm. No postage iB required on
letters so addressed. Nu application
forms will be supplied after February 15, 1923. Farmers are advised
to send at once for forms in order
not to be discouraged, as in some
cases the stock is limited. The allotment of samples will be made in
order of application. Only one
aample will bc aent to a farm.

It seems to be generally conceded that
there is something wrong with the fruit market,
and in fact with the market for all the pro
ducts of the farm. More effective coopera
tion is being energetically preached in many
quarters as a cure. But many people believe
that industrial organizations have already
reached tlieir apex, and that if they persist in
climbing higher the whole fabric mnst tumble
down. Certain it is, that every interest worth
mentioning has an organization with high-
salaried officers. When a well disciplined
army charges a mob the casualty list among
the soldiers is usually at zero, or at least vory
small; but when two equally well trained
armies engage in battle the victorious force
often emerges from the fight in snch a crippled
condition that its future usefulness as a combatant is negligible. Has cooperation arrived
at a stage were it is rendered impotent by opposing forces? or is it merely the men at the
head of cooperation who have failed? If the
first supposition is the cause of our present
trouble, the sooner we abandon cooperation
and allow the fundamental principle of supply
and dema d to govern the market the better
it will be for the farmer. If the second cause
nan be established, the men who now direct
i he affairs of the organization can not be
changed too scon.
We believe in cooperation up to a certain
limit,but not up to the point where it develops
into a trust or monopoly for Lhe purpose of
fleecing the public. Altnough the cooperative
system practiced by the farmers if this province has never had a chance to become a monopoly, it possesses the fault of being operated
on a too expensive scale. It is more suited
for an association of millionaires than for
hard-working farmers. It is said that the
citrous growers of Florida have a simple and
inexpensive cooperative marketing system
that has worked effectively for years. It might
pay the British Columbia farmers to learn
more about tbat system, and to ascertain if it
is applicable to conditions here.
One thing is certain: the farmer must pros,
per if the province is to prosper.
Irish and Canadian
The assertion is often made that the  pres -
t nt demoralization of prices for farm products
i i due to overproduction.   This contention is
lurdly  tonablo.   We will  have  to look else-
w.'iere for a soltitiou.   If every family in Can -
ii la had a box of apples at a price which  it
ca i afford to pay—a price that would pay the
grower for his work of producing tha fruit and
a fair interest on his investment—there would
nuo be enough apples to around.   The trouble
lie i in tho big spread  between   the  producer
anl the consumer and high  transportation
cli irges.   When these items are reduced much
he tdway will bave bcen made in stabilizing
tha market.
Shipment of fruit on a consignment basis
is ilso an evil that should be done away with.
This season the jobbers and wholesalers seem
to have been playing marbles with the British
Columbia apples consigned to them by the
sales agencies. According to reports, in every
instance where independent growers have
pi iced carload lots, of apples at a "living
wage," consigned fruit has rolled in a few days
later at a lower figure, and the independent
gr iwer's order has been cancelled. Of cours e
th j consignees could afford to pursue these
tactics, because the apples didn't cost the m
anything. All thoy had to get out of thorn was
tlieir commission—it made no difference to
ilum who had to pay the freight. But it is
vory "small business" for cooperative con-
corns to allow thoir products to be used as a
means of cutting their neighbors' prices. It
may oven be suspected that this method of
blocking the sales of the individual growers
M?as encouraged by the high-salaried officers
of the sales agencies. It would have lowered
them in tho estimation of their employers if
common ranchers had succeeding in making
sales at fair prices where expert salesmen had
The sphere of influence of Canadiau poets
is spreading. United India and Indian States
has the following review of the above mentioned book:
This anthology is an elegant tribute paid by
an Irishman to the grandeur and natural
beauty of his motherland, and also is a splen
did 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 s own early schgol
days, the poet's facile and graphic pen strikes
a fino 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 The Hero.the poet pays a handsome trib
ute 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 not to part
With his life for the cause that was dear to his heart;
But few be our tears! for he takes the command
Of great souls who inspire us to fight for our land.
The oak that is strongest may fall in the blast,
But a forest will grow from the seeds that it cast;
Thus each drop from the breast of this flower of our race
Will spring up a soldier to stand in his place.

The natural course of passing away from
this world is thus described in Going Away:
Yet those we leave shall go away,
Aud those they leave shall go;
All to the great Eternity
We follow in a row.
Troubles, worries and disappointments are
the natural shares of human beings, and the
poet offers a little consolation in his poem,
Broken Buds, in these words:
Perhaps the flowers of heaven are little flowers
That here at birth were broken on the ground;
Perhaps the hours of heaven are happy hours

->!■">. real.—Automobile accident*
fire still continuing st railway cross-
inps despite all the efforta of tha
railways to prevent them. In on* in-
Etance at Holland Centre, Ontario,
an automobile drove np and Btopped
on the main line of the Canadian
Pacific Railway. The driver thought
that an approaching train would
take another passing track. Tha
driver, realizing his mistake, triad
to pet his car out of tha way of tha
train. But his car was stalled. Tha
engineer was unable to atop tha
train, with the result that tha automobile was smashed and three occa-
pants of the car were injured.
At a crossing on Aylmer Road,
near Hull, Quebec,, an automobile ran
into a Canadian Pacific train. Tha
driver was going too fast to stop
his automobile when ba saw tha
train. Two occupants of the automobile were injured.

IIOME for Christmas — to many
*•* thousands oi Britishers now living in various parts of Canada that
Is more than a thought, it ia a sentiment. Christmas probably means
more to English people than to most
others, while to the Scotch, New
Vear's Day is the Day of Days. For
both of them the holiday season
brings a heart pull towards the Old
Country that will not be denied, and
lo many of those who will not admit the "touch of human nature that
makes us all kin," Ihe holiday season
comes as an excellent oppoiltmity,
and something of an excuse to make
a trip back "Home" For Christmas
week old Ix>ndon draws all the world.
The fascinating splendour and incomparable facilities of entertainment are at their best, and like April
in thc English countryside, it sets all
who know her longing to be there.
*It is already apparent that the holiday travel to Europe will this year be
rather heavier than it has for some
time, which may perhaps be taken as
one result of thc more generally satisfactory   crop   year   through   which
the country has passed. Than, too,
conditions in Great Britain are somewhat better stabilized tban tbey hav*
been, and the welcome home wfll
probably be all the heartier.
The Canadian- Pacific Railway haa
made special arrangements to meet
the expected increase in traffic.
Trains carrying passengers will ran
alongside the ships at St. John, NB.,
thus guaranteeing a practically uninterrupted journey from any point in
Canada to the British port. A feature of the trans-Atlantic holiday
travel this year will be the employment of the new Canadian Pacific
Mono-class steamers. Technically
these steamers provide second-class
and steerage accommodation, but
their apoptntments and service arc
such as to make them adequate for
almost any standard of taste. The
"Montcalm," which will be included
in the holiday sailings, is typical of
that class. She is an oil-burner of a
total length of 563 feet, with thc utmost in spacious and luxurious accommodation. . In the short time in
which she lias been running, she has
proved  comfortable to the last  de
gree, and her fittings include a cellular double bottom and the very latest
and most perfect operating safety
devices. Lounges, diawniq, card
and smoking rooms and dining saloon are the last word in modem
interior decoration, with first
thoughts given to comfort and good
taste. A* special Children's Room is
a new feature, and the steerage, or
third daaa, accommodation is of the
most modem description. Here
again the lounges, smoking and other
rooms, and the dining saloons provide unexcelled loaifoi'l and ample
By way of guaranteeing a through
service for holiday travellers, the
Canadian Pacific will run special tourist sleepers from Edmonton, Calgary,
and other Western points. These
will connect with special trains at
Winnipeg, and will ran through to the
ship's side. .
Sailings from St. John are arranged as follows)—"Ttnrbjan" to
Glasgow and Liverpool, Dec S, "Melita" to Southampton, Dee. 9, "Montcalm" to Liverpool, Dee. tt, and
"Vetagama" to Glasgow, Dec. 15.
A motor accident with all ths
thrills of a movie stunt occurred at
the corner of Yonge and King i
streets. Toronto, when an automo-
bile charged into one of the King
E'veet windows of the Canadian Pa- :
cific Building, making a report that

The car, according to the police, j
was coming north on Yonge street.
Tho signals were against the car,
which in its flight grazed a B*lt
Line ear going east on King street
It continued to swerve right across
the pavement into thc plate glass
front of the imposing C. P. R. offics
building. Here, with a loud backfire from the engine, the ear sud- I
denly plunged its front wheels
through the quarter-inch plate-glass
window. Being up against an immovable obstacle it naturally came
to a standstill.
No one was hurt. The fende' of
the car was badly smashed up, the
right front tire torn off and tha
rear wheel badly damaged. The
window was broken right across th*
whole twelve feet or so, and to a
height of about six feet in one point
The driver admitted that he was
nervous at the time; he hadn't th*
slightest idea of what was happening.
New Liskeard.—The work of constructing the northerly extension of
the C. P. R. from Kipawa to Des
'Qninze is progressing at a good rate,
Rnd already the grading has been
completed on 35 miles of the extension, with 19 miles of rails having
been  laid.
The present contract, held by
A.ijUis & Taylor of North Bay, calls
for the construction of 70 miles of
rr '.jb-d, tho northern end terminating in the eieinity of Des Quinse,
r \e of the greatest series of water-
f. l's  in  Northern  Canada.
This extension places the C. P. R.
on the southern outskirts of mineral lands of big prospective merit

thut the C. P. R. has also carried
survey work far into the new land
