General McRae Will Be
Given an Opportunity
to Substantiate Hia
Veiled Charges Against
the Government
Special CtsTrespondence of The Sun
Victoria, December 19—War bas
been declared by Premier Oliver
and bis party upon General A. D.
McRae, leader of tbe Provincial
party, and bis followers. After sub
mitting more or less meekly to
veiled insinations of wrongdoing in
connection witb tbe' Pacific Qreat
Eastern railway affairs for many
y ars, the government leader's patience haB at last been exhausted;
his hat has been thrown into tbe
ring and he has issued a challenge
to bis enemies to get into the open
and figbt.
The royal commission will commence a most thorough investigation into third party charges against
Hon. William Sloan and W.J. Bowler, K.C, leader of tbe opposition.
Io order tbat tbe reputation of pub*
lie men holding office as tbe chosen
representatives of tbe people mny
be freed from insidious suspicion,
av amendment to tbe public enquiries act bas been paseed, permitting any royal commission to
enquire into the records, character
aadj motives of men preferring
chargee, including newspaper proprietors, publisher** and editors.
Af Ier declaring repeatedly on the
floor or the legislature tbat if any
man would make a definite charge
against himself cr bis government,
or against any member of the legislature, he would grant an investigation, Premier Oliver bas decided
that every charge of wrongdoing
(ball be investigated.
"Charges bave been hurled against
me year after year," he said. "Many
of them bave been of tbe dirtiest
nature. I bave stood for a grtat deal
and yet no man can show where 1
profited by a dollar wbile in public
life. On one occasion I answered
charges by bringing a libel suit
against an accuser The chargee
were proven false before i judge and
jury and I received tbe sum of 25
oents damages. That is what a pnb*
lie man gets in thiB country, and
there nfust be an end to it "
Answering the accusations of
General McRae and hie followers,
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, issued a flat denial in the
house and referred to McRae as the
greateet of exploiters. He said that
McRae and h s associates had made
a profit of $9,000,000 through tbe
sale of western Canada prairie lands;
that the settlers bad been fleeced
and many bad to leave their hold-
inga. He charged tbat McRae and
his associates had wrecked the Pan
eific Whaling company, and bad
disposed ot ten whaling licenses,
oosting f 1000 per year, for the sum
of 1500,000. He declared that Mc-
Rae's operations as the "Man Fri*
day" of McKensie & Mann had
been notorioue, and he explained
that McRae was prominent in tbe
saie of the Canadian Collcries.Duns*
muir Ltd., which cost 19,500,000,
for 120,000,000, to British investors.
Attorney General Manson informed the house that last year Gen.
McRae had paid 918.70 income lax
in this province, while spending
126,000 to keep up bis bome in
Shangbnaesy Heights, Vancouver.
The royal commission will commence its sitting early in the year,
and tbe prediction of your orre-
spon lent is that a cloud of suspic*
ion, wbich has bung unfairly over
the heads of government members,
will be permanently lifted and tbat
in future in tbis|provioce tbe elected
represents lives of the people will be
able to oarry out the wishes of their
constituents without the constant
pwweution of ambitious exploiters,

wbo seek all for themselves but
nothing for tbe man wbo bears the
burden of taxation and wbo is tbe
backbone of the great Pacific prov.
Two measures directly affecting
tbe general-public, passed this session, are the gasoline tax uf 3 cents
per gallon and tbe reduction of 50
per cent in the farm property tax.
Tbe former is largely offset by the
decre.ee of 25 p.c. in motor licensee
and tbe revenue eecured will be
used for road purposes. Tbe lower
farm property tax is granted to
permit the agriculturalist an opportunity to recoup hie fortunes
through adverse market conditions.
Has Started
Doing Business
The Kettle Vallery Creamery
company, with R. H. Woods,
a practical creamery man from
Alberta, as manager, commenced business this week
in the premies recently occupied by the Curlew Creamery
in the cannery building. The
creamery is a partnership concern, composed of local men,
and the new enterprise starts
out with excellent prospects
of attaining immediate success.
A modern creamery is
probably tbe most important
industry to the farmer that
can be established in a community, as it often means the
source of his living. He should
therefore strive to keep it
supplied with, the raw material; aud the townspeople
should be liberal patrons of
its products.
Grovernment Inspeotor
Praises the Associated
Just before leaving Vernou for
the 'coast after ao inspection trip
through the Okanagan district, R.
G. L. Clarke, chief fruit inspector
for British Columbia, discussed
with the Vernon Newa tbe general
condition of tbe industry.
He pai-.l a high compliment to
tbe Associated Growers for tbe
manner in which it had handled
the growers' affairs during tbe past
"The Associated got going late in
tbe season and bad to do many
things whioh might not have
been done bad there been more
time, but as it is the officers did
good work despite all the handicaps," said Mr. Clarke.
"Tbe organization has made some
mistakes this season, it is true, but
wbo among us is there that hasn't?
When one cooeidere the big task
tbat was put up to the organization
during tbe year, the results bave exceeded my expectations," he added.
Mr. Clarke's work takes him in
close toucb with all sides of the
fruit business, and his words of
praise to tbe Associated Growers
can therefore ne taken ae coming
from one wbo knows.
Tbe government will reduce tbe
license fees on motor vehicles by 26
per cent and will increase tourist
permits from three eo six months.
The personal property tax will be
out to jne half of 1 per cent, while
it bas been definitely decided to
place tbe fuel oil tax at one balf
bent put gallon.

They Have Been on the
Biggest Political Drunk
in Canadian History,
Says Dr. Macklin, Agri-
cultaral Economist
"You bave just gone through tbe
grandest drunk on politics wbich it
can ever be your privilege to experience as a farmers' organization,
and now tbat you have reached tbe
sobering stage and have cast out
politics as one of your main issues,
you bave some hope of attaining
those objects for which you should
rightly exist."
Tbat was one of a number of
points in remarks made in an address delivered before the delegates
to the convention of tbe United
Farmers of Ontario in Toronto list
week by Dr. Theodore Macklin,
agricultural economist in tbe University of Wisconsin.
■ ' "
_These remarks, Dr. Macklin said,
were made in view of the United
Farmers' methods of carrying on;
and wbile he had a good deal of
criticism to launch in a friendly
way at tbe methods employed by
the farmer organization in tbe past,
he declared that they had reached
tbe sobering stage wben tbey decided to out loose from politics as
an organization and proceed along \*
their legitimate lines of business,
social and educational advancement.
The farmers of tbe United States
bad made tbat discovery, though
unfortunately for them, many of
tbeir organizations appreciated tbeir
mistakes too late and bo passed
down to oblivion. But, in addition
to farmer organizations, tbere bave
been otber bodies, such as railway
clerks and certain business organ
izations wbich believed tbey bad a
rightful place in politics.
"Tbeir organizations, like yours,
bave found tbat political interests
are ike the will o' the wisp," Dr.
Macklin continued. "For politics
are just as unsuitable as religious
interests would be . s a basis for a
farmers' organization. To capture
the government for a time carries
witb it its own boomerang, no mate
ter wbat tbe occasion, tbe purpose
or tbe group."
After tbat Dr. Macklin went on
to criticise tbe methods under wbicb
tbe United Farmers have been operating as a business concern apart
from politics.

Notes, Notions and Notables
What to produce aad when to  produce  it
must always be a problem to the agriculturist
in a new and growing country with a population totally inadequate for its expanse.    This
was emphasized  by  Mr. Barrow, provincial
minister of agriculture, when he was discussing rural  conditions  in  the legislature the
other day.   He pointed out that the farmer,
who is a practical man and working  hard, is
not gambling. He declared that this was true in
spite of the fact thatjconditions are not as good
as they might be.for the simple fact that at the
present time various markets have undergone
a period of acute depression.    Nevertheless,
Mr. Barrow is the impression Aat so far as
rural  production  in British Columbia is concerned, the province has reached the bottom
and   is now beginning to climb up to a level
from which more progressive and reliable development   will   be   possible.   The minister
points out,   however,  that the farmer who
would succeed  must study his markets and
regulate his production according to the markets that now prevail and markets that can be
developed when there is, as thero should be, a
more studied regard for local and   export requirements as dictated  by seasonal demand.
It should be pointed out, however, that rural
development and production in British Columbia is a very long way from the blue ruin condition whioh some people, actuated purely by
political motives, are endeavoring to make out.
As a  matter of fact the province exported
agricultural products to the value of $6,550,-
000 in  1922 as against .$3,995,000 in 1916.
These figures speak for themselves and require
no explanation.
* Possibly no building in England is so rich
in historic memories as the famous Tower of
London. It is bathed in blood and tragedy; it
is the haunting place of innumerable ghosts
and filled with legendary lore. It has housed
the world's greatest patriots and has also been
the custodian of the world's most notorious.
The Tower of London, the ancient citadel and
state prison of London, is on the north bank
of the Thames, about one mile east of London
bridge. Tradition ascribes its foundation to
Claudius Caesar, but for this statement there
is no evidence, although the structure may occupy the site of the old Roman fortification.
The White Tower—the first part erected—
was commenced in-1078 by William the Conqueror, and completed by his son, William
Rufus, who, in L098, .surrounded it with walls
a!id a moat, and built, in addition, St. Thomas'
Tower and Traitor's Gate Tho Tower of London has been added to by several of tho sovereigns of England, ami covers at the present
time an area of 13 acres. It. is used at the
present day .simply as an armory, and a jewel-
bouse for the drown regalia
The  whole continent  of Africa  has only
three.ndependontstates, Egypt, Abyssinia and
Liberia; and Groat Britain  really dominates
both  Egypt and  Abyssinia, and  the United
States virtually controls Liberia.    If the ,Sa
hara desert be included, Franco is the greatest
landowner in Africa.   Great Britain, Belgium
Portugal, Italy and .Spain follow in the order
named. Germany, which once ruled over more
than a million square miles,  is now entirely
out of Africa. The CapetoOairo railway now
bu.ld.ng is expected to open for development
vast areas of rich couutry.
The man who says he never makes a mis
take  probably  doesn't  know  one when   he
sees it.
The Christmas season with its feasting and
merriment is with us once more. We see its
influence reflected from the many happy faces
as they pass us by. There seems to be a sub
tie magic in the air tbat is expressed by a
heartier handclasp and a warmer welcome.
What a joyous gladsome ring there is to
that old-fashioned wish of "Merry Christmas,"
that we get from our friends. "The Satae to
You and Many of Tham," we cheerfully answer back, with a sparkle in the eye.
For Christmas is the one season that takes
us away from the bickerings and cares of business, and fills our hearts with human love and
understanding and sympathy; and poor indeed
is he whose heart or purse does not respond
to its magic call. Truly, at this season, "The
Bethlehem Message" is a living inspiration.
We feel we can not better express our feelings to our many friends in more fitting words
than Jhose of poor crippled Tiny Tim in
Dickens' delightful fantasy, A Christmas
"God Bless Us Every One."
A great many of the flowers so well beloved
bear names taken from human beings and are
recorded in clessic legends. Take.for instance,
the hyacinth and narcissus. "Hyacinthus" was
beloved by Zephyrus, but returned the affection so coldly that the latter, in anger, threw
the quoit (flung by Apollo) so that it hit Hya
cinthus on the head, causing his heath. In his
grief Apollo changed the youth's blood into
the flower. \arcissus.according to one legend,
fell in love with his own fair image as he saw
it reflected in water, mistaking it for the
nymph of the fountain. He pined away and
died of unrequited love. The flower bloomed
from the place where he languished. Crocus
is the Greek "krokos," saffron, to which family it belongs, Saffron is made from the dried
stigmata of the purple crocus. The Jonquil
gets its name from the Latin wordfora "rush,"
which has similar leaves and flowers.
Among thewouders of nature is the "holo-
thurian," a stttange fish that ejects some of its
vital parts wpon captured. If restored to its
native element these parts are renewed. The
holothurian is popularly called the "sea cucumber," from its resemblunce in shape and
rough skin to that vegetable. The holothurian
moves'by tubes which are filled with water.and
when distended act as suckers to drag the
animal over tho bottom. It undergoes a metamorphosis, something like that of the starfish.
/Before the larva is fully grown, the body of
the young holothurian begins to bud out from
the near side of the larval stomach, and the
tentacles begin to grow out. Finally, after the
larval body is absorbed the young holothurian
sinks to the bottom. A form living in the
South Seas at the Falkland islands carries its
young in a sort of nursery where they are
densely packed in two continuous fringes adhering to the dorsal tubes.
To be of use in the world is the offty way to
be happy.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob*
tained, 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, wno, for the lack of suoh service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinoes 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 Arthur 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 tbe
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Botud. 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.

PRINCE RUPERT, the terminua of the Canadian National Railway!
in Northern British Columbia, has come to the fore of recent yeart
as one of the premier fish-producing areas of the Dominion of
Canada. Prince Rupert halibut is known all over the American continent, and the industry has reached large proportions because of the
distribution service placed at the disposal of the fishermen at that port
by the Canadian National Railways.
The one essential in the fishing industry is the speedy marketing
of the fish after they are caught. By means of a rapid express service
over the Canadian National, halibut and other flsh from Prince Rupert
are laid down in Winnipeg, Montreal, Toronto and other Canadian and
America cities very quickly afUr they are landed from the Ashing
boats in Prince Rupert harbor.
Halibut fishery is the chief sea industry of Prince Rupert, and during 1922, 26,275,300 lbs. of halibut were landed at that port. In addition, 33,225,300 lbs. of salmon were caught and large quantities of
herring, cod, flat flsh and crabs. The cod and herring fisheries, whieh

As a Christmas present the new Maxwell
Club Sedan is an ideal choice because it is
a sound and sensible investment. At the same
time it would give every member of your
family the greatest satisfaction and pleasure.
In the Club Sedan you have two-door friend-
liness with four-door facility. The doors are
three feet wide. There is exceptional comfort
and roominess. You can quickly remove the
upholstery and use the tonneau for baggage,
boxes or produce. You can sleep in it on
tour or when camping.
No car offers greater possibilities for practical service. And the price, little more than
the cost of an open model, assures a value
that cannot be excelled.
