Victoria, March 7.—For the
avowed purpose of protecting the
coal mining industry in British (Jul*
umbia, Hon. William Sloan, minis*
ter of mines, Ins announced his intention to work for tbe imposition
of a larger tax on fuel oil used iu
this province. Recently be stated
tbat tbe use of oil meant the dis*
placemeut of 1,000,000 tons of British Columbia aoal and the loss of
1100,000 to tbe exchequer annually
in revenue Following requests made
several years ago, the federal government imposed a small tax, but
tbis, Mr. Sloan claims, bas not been
large enougb to be effectives ibougb
it has netted Ottawa a large income.
Now be proposes a provincial tax to
be levied on consumption, the legal
department having given the opinion
that sucb a course is within tbe
rights of the government.
Premier Oliver is optimistic over
the outcome of British Colombia's
fight for cheaper freight rates, and
accompanied by G. G. McGeer,
counsel for tbe government, will
make another trip to Ottawa following tbe prorogation of tbe house of
commons. At this time Premier
Mackenzie King bas promised tbat
tbe matter will receive tbe full attention of the federal cabinet.
As tbe result of a round-table conference held in Vancouver Tuesday,
attended by Hon. T. D. Pattullo,
minfsler of lands,   the chef  forest
- branch  officials,  and   a delegation
- representing tbe timber interests of
tbe province, it bas been decided to
plan a revision of timber royalties.
The present "Royalty Act" was
passed at the initiative of tbe timber men, wbo considered it an ironclad arrangement that fur forty
years would ensure the payment of
very modest royalties by the timber
men. Tbe minister points out tbat
on account of fluctuating values of
currency and otber conditions, tbe
act threatens to work out different y
from wbat was anticipated aud gives
indication of imposing a royalty so
high tbat the limber interests bave
become alarmed. He states thnt it
is the desire of the government to
protect tbe industry as mnch as
possible and yet at the same time
obtain for the province a reasonable
return from time to time of any increases in timber values.
Sucb progress bas been made on
tbe completion of the Sumas reclamation project that Hon. E D.
Barrow, minister of agriculture, an
nouuoes tbat tbe government will
offer for sale this year some 3000
acres of reclaimed lands, tbe finest
in tbe lower Fraser valley. Officials
of the federal government ore making an inspection of tbe work, and
wben tbey are satisfied the Dominion will turn over to the province
tbe reclaimed lake-bottom lands, in
ex ten 112,000 acres. Nearly 30,000
acrts of high-class land will be
available for faming purposes when
tbe work is finished this year, and
the cultivation of this area is expected to decrease materially the
importation of foodstuffs into British Columbia. Despite adverse criti-
oiem  and  tbe  pessimism pt  tbe
BEEKEEPING
Anyone intending lo start beekeeping must bave a fair knowledge
of bee behavior and wbat tbo bees
require. A thorough knowledge of
modern methods is not necessary to
make a start; indeed, tbis knowledge
can only come through years of
practical experience. The wider
one's exderience tbe better beekeeper oue becomes. It is essential to be
able to apply knowledge promptly
and to do tbe right thing at the
right time. The business of beekeeping is one of details and one
th t requires specialists. To gain the
knowledge required, it is advisable
for the prospective beekeeper to
spend at least one season with a
good beekeeper if at all possible. If
this can not be done much may be
learned by attending short courses
in beekeeping at any of the colleges,
reading good books on the subject
or visiting neighboring bee yards as
often as possible.
When ready to take up tbe business the first consideration is one of
looation. A good location Is oue tbat
will produce a fairly continuous supply of pollen and nectar from early
spring until fall, with at least one
source tbat can be depended npon
for a.heavy crop. Transportation,
avoidance of overcrowding,and shelter from winds are other factors to
bear in mind when choosing a place
for the Jpiary. Locality will also determine the system of management, tbe equipment used and kind
of honey produced.
Whenever possible the beginner
should purchase one oj two colonies
of Italian bees with tested queens in
his own district. These should be in
modern hives. The hive in commou
use is the ten-frame Langstroth, although some beekeepers now prefer a larger hive carrying twelye
frames, or tbe tenfaame Jumbo,
whicb is a deeper hive,
Bees can also be bought in ooe,
two or tbree pound combless pick-
ages, aud if obtained early enough
in tbe season are often equal to
overwintered colonies. No one
sbould make the mistake of purchasing package bees until he has
hives and otber accessories in readiness.
In addition to the colonies uf bees
a supply of supers is necessary for
the ftorage of tbe crop, the equiva
lent of three deep supers being allowed for eacb colony. Queen excluders, bee escapes, smoker and
veil are necessary. If increase is do-
sired a few complete hives should
be on hand for this purpose. There
are Beveral manufacturers of bee
supplies that send out catalogues on
application, and by studying those
tbe beginner should have no trouble
in choosing the supplies be might
require. It must be borne in mind,
bomever, that the equipment purchased should be modern and suitable for tbe purpose it is intended
for; also to keep it standard. Tbe
importance of a small beginning
witb as little expense as possible
can not be too strongly urged.

Delinite Announcement
Made That Money Is
Available for Completion of the Unit
E. C. Henniger, M.P.P.,
and Dan McPherson, who returned fro.n Victoria Wednesday evening, state that they
were successful in obtaining
a definite statement from the
government that the money
for the installation of No. 2
unit of the irrigation system
would be available as soon as
it was required.
About $2000 have already
been spent on the installation
ofthe pump foundations, and
about -?40,000 more will com -
plete this unit. The nnit comprises
about 500 acres of irrigable land
uuder cultivation.
It is supposed tbut tbe irrigation
district trustees will take immediate

means of verifying this statement at present,
but it is probably correct. It is quite natural that the cost per capita for this service
should be higher in a sparsely populated
province than in a densely settled province.
FRIDAY, MARCH 9, 1923
All the speakers at the Provincial party
meeting on Friday evoning disclaimed being
politicians. However, Commauder Lewis, a
few seconds after making this disavowal.made
the confession that he could pass an examina
tion in British and Dominion politics, and
that he had a passing acquaintance with provincial politirs; Mr. Stewart's Wow of oratory
was s.irely not acquired while lie was engaged
in milking cows, and General Mcliae spoke
as fluently aud smoothly in his heart-1) heart
talk as a man selling Texas oil shares. Perhaps these qualifications are ouly preliminaries to becoming a professional politician
An air of pessimism pervaded the meeting
concerning the present conditons generally in
the province. All the charges and counter
charges mado by the old parties against each
other in the heat of the last general election
were revamped and hurled at the audience as
gospel truths. The speakers deplored the
patronage system, yet they appealed to the
electors to vote the new party into power in
order that a clean sweep might be made Under the new party creed this may be called
couistency. The government of the day was
character zed as inefficient and lacking a constructive policy. Wonderful phrase—to juggle
with! What is its meaning? Is it not to develop the resources of the provinee and to
mact laws that will inure to the benefit and
iiappiness of the people? Where is there a
provincial government in Canada today that
lias done as much to develop its resources and
placed as advanced legislation on its statute
iiooks as the Oliver administration? None of
i iie farmer governments of the prairie provinces
o m lay claim to coming anywhere near the
Victoria government in this respect, and it
is unreasonable to suppose that a farmer
a lministration in British Columbia would do
any better.
Mr. Stewart deplored tho excessive cost of
the Okanagan irrigation and soldier settlement
project. This item should come uuder the
haad "constructive policy." Let us take a look
at its cost and its possibilities. Twelve miles
of solid concrete flume, eight feet wide at the
top aand five at the bottom and seven feet
deep, has beeu constructed from Okangan
lake southward. Eight miles more will com
plete it and bring it to to the international
boundary line. Up to tho present time about
!js2,75O,O00 has been expended on the system,
including a costly coiicrete reservoir at the
base of the lake. This sum also includes the
purchase of 22,090 acres of land at -$10 per
icre. Twelve thousand Bores of this land is
suitable for agriculture and horticulture, the
balance being good pasture land. It is esti
mated that the cost of the completed system
will be a little over .*)s:J,030,090. The land wit h
water is selling for $300 per acre. This will
bring $3,000,000 back to provincial treasury.
Water users are now paying $6 per acre, and
they are allowed thirteen acre feet per annum.
When a water municipality is formed this
charge will be cut down to $2 per acre.
The goveanment will get back every cent it
has put into this projeot and the province will
be richer in production; and a large stretch
of territory that would otherwise have been|are.
waste land will be dotted with happy and
prosperous homes. Does that come under
"constructive polioy," or is it merely wasting
money foolishly?
British Columbia's bonded indebtedness
seems to be the primary cause forthe pessimistic views expressed concerning things in
general by self-styled reformers. All the
speakers Friday evening paid due respect to
this subject; and likewise all of them forgot
to mention the fact that a large portion of this
debt has been created by the government borrowing money and reloani.ig it to districts
for industrial, irrigation and general development purposes. The Grand Forks urigation
munic'pality and the people in the Okanagan
and in other sections of the province know
that this money has done good work. They
also know that eventually it will find its way
back to the public treasury. \ o better proof of
the province's financial soundness is needed
than the fact ft hat the government is able to
borrow money at a lower rate of interest than
any other province in the Dominion. Monay
lenders are not sentimentalists.
CONSERVE YOUR SIGHT
•THE STRAIN of modern civil-
-"■ ized life falls heaviest upon
the eye, the hardest worked and
most neglected of all thehuman
organs. The constant need of
close-range vision; the continual
exposure to the glare reflected
from pavement and buildings or
from high-powered oleectric
lights, all expose the eye to terrific strain. Many suffer from
eyestrain without being con
scious of it. Have your eyes ex ■
amined and know. We are admirably  equipped for this work.

It has become fashionable to rave at the
high taxes, and the Provincial party missionaries were no exception to the rule. Taxes are
high—damnably high. But it is our opinion
that the people themselves are responsible for
this state of affairs in this province. They
petitioned the government for experts as
teachers in every branch of industry, and
now, when the time has arrived for paying for
the maintenauce of these teachers, they kick.
Personally, we could get along better wi^h
fewer experts and lower taxes. Bnt there is
another way to look at this question. Everything that the ordinary person uses has
doubled in..price during the past few years.
Why expect taxes to remain stationary on a
pre war basis?
The speakers seemed to think that the new
party had an advantage over the, old parties,
because it had no past record that the electorate could delve into. To some parties'a past
is a disadvantage while to others it ls a de
cided asset. Anyway, Lhe Provincial party
can not escape comparison between tbe present British Columbia government and farmer
governments in other provinces.

.Banff.—J. 8. Harkin, Commit)-
■aioner of National Parks, has an-
pounced that thc formal opening of
lthe BanfT-Windermere Road, work
on which was concluded last year,
will take place on June 30. The
ceremony is to be held at Vermillion
Crossing, half way between Banff
•nd Windermere, motors leaving
both ends of the road early in tha
morning to meet at lhat plnce. The
suggestion has been made by It. li.
Bruce, of Invermere, that the National Park be named "I'oi'imbia
National Park," and the road leading up the Columbia Valley from
the boundary to Golden be named
the "Canadian Columbia Highway."
Victoria.—Motorists will have a
new circuit trip available with the
completion in May of the high-
powered motor ferry now building
at Yarrows. Not only will Island
and Mainland be linked by the operation of this craft, but the Canadian Pacific will have the steamer
"Charmer" engaged in the purpose
farther north. The "Charmer" will
operate between Vancouver aad Nanaimo, furnishing accommodation
for all types of can. With the new
ferry in service, a new circuit will
be made available—from Seattle via
Bellingham to Sidney, thence to Victoria over paved road, to Nanaimo
Star taa Malabat, thence by the
"Charmer" to Vancouver and down
the Pacific Highway to thc border
Uae aad Seattle again.
The motor ferry will have ample
height between deck to allow for
■11 classes of cars. During the busy
season it will make two round trips
•very day. The vessel will be fitted
with observation rooms and open
deck spaces to give tourists every
opportunity to enjoy at their ease
the fine scenery through the channels between San Juan, Lopez aad
ether islands of the San Juan archipelago.
Bt. John, N.B.—The Canadlaa Pacific freighter, "Bollngbroke" recently brought from London tho
largest import cargo to reach St.
John since the war. She was crammed to the hatches with more than
4,700 tons of general merchandise.
Capt. E. Landy, who is in command,
■aid that he had never carried a
more valuable cargo aad expressed
great satisfaction that not a single
package had been lost. Included in
the cargo were silks and other valuable dress goods, dry goods of various, descriptions, perfumes and many
other expensive commodities. A
cargo of this kind makes lots of
won for the longshoremen.
VaaeoBTar.—Carrying a record
shipment of Canadian apples to the
Orient the.Canadian Pacific 16,850-
ton liner, "Empress of Aaia'' recently aails-'ft
On opening the crates in tho
Oriental ports the consignees of
past shipments have found that tho
apples are as fresh bb if taken from
the tree. This is partly due to the
fact that at this time of the year
the perishable cargo only gets one
day of tropical heat during the whole
voyage across. The "Asia" took ap
proximately 860 tons of this commodity in her holds, the largest consignment of apples to go through
the Narrows this season for tho
Orient.
GRANBY WILL

Vancouver. March 3.— Concentrates from tbe Copper mountain
property recently acquired by tbe
Granby ^company will be aent to

yesterday by H. S. Munroe, general
manager of the Granby company,on
his arrival here from Anyox. 'i'he

announced 'tbut minor alterations
would be made in the mill so thut it

Conjectures that the concentrates
would be taken to the Anyox suae liter were denied by Mr. Mumoe, who
said that such a procedure would
be most uneconomical.
About ■10U men would he employed in tbe mill andmine.be said,
and although the mine was sufficiently opened up to enable it to
be worked at lho capacity of the
mill right away, ho announced that

as soon as weather permitted tbe

Tbe Outsider group at Maple Hay,
he announced, had been developed
to tbe point where it was now decided to equip the properly, and
actual mining would be in operation
before snowfall, he predicted. Docks
and an aerial tramway would be

The Ohjeoti of tiiis Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob
tainod, arc: "I'o -jroviiie a llmno an I Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free SeieiiLilic Care, Training and Maintenance; to ,Savo the Lives of
even a few of the many of suoh unfortunates, who, for the lack of such sor-
vice, perish every your; and to return theso little ones to their parents, at
sohool ago 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 venous provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in tho Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home wasopeued 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 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 every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will bo 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.
HORSESHOES

HAIRSPRINGS ?
Five dollars worth of iron made into
horseshoes hud a market value of ten
dollars. Converted into needles that
live dollars worth of iron becomes
worth six thousand eight hundred dollars, but when made into hairsprings
for watches it is worth two million
dollars.
We may all be compared with that
original five dollars worth oi' iron—
what we make of ourselves—*-how
valuable we become—depends upon
ourselves.
Most of us are content to be in the
horseshoe class. A few reach thc rank
of neediest but how rare is the man
who can be classed as a hairspring-—
the man who makes the most of every
talent he was born with—who not
merely takes advantage of every opportunity but, Napoleon like, creates
opportunities.

an expression of dignified
gratification he unfolded a scrap of a

had pulled out of the pocket of his

the words, "Eli Brown, E.O.B., 50

"What do these letters stand for?"
I asked.
"Why, Miss Ma'y, all de quality in

Repartee, tho "artless art," seems
really to be a gift, and he who has it
is fortunate indeed. In the Nineteenth
Century Sir Edward Sullivun relates
this bit of sparkling conversation that
once passed between Cardinal Vaughan and Dr. Adler, the chief Jewish
rabbi.
The two men were seated next to
eaoh other at luncheon. "Now, Dr
Adler," said the cardinal, "when
may I have the pleasure of helping
you to some ham?"
The rabbi replied without a pause,
"At your eminence's wedding!"
It was not a rabbi but a bishop—
Dr. Potter of Now York—that once
replied neatly and unhesitatingly to
a question that must have been almost a* startling as the cardinal's,
A lady had asked him wny in pictures
and statues angels are always represented as women or as young men
without beards or moustaches.
"Oh," replied the bishop, "everyone knows that women naturally inherit the kingdom of heaven, but
men get in by a very close shave."

the ship that brought the first H.B.C. adventurers to Canada,
aboriginal tribes. The exhibit is at
present set up at thc company's store
nt Winnipeg, and while not nearly as
large as it may he expected to become, already occupies a series of
rooms in that establishment.
I'he following principal divisions of
the exhibit have been made for convenience: liarly History, Furs, Indians, Life In the Service, Forts,
Posts', aud Stores, Fights and Wars,
Land  and  Settlement.
From the time the natives of
Hiidso.n Bay welcomed the first H
B, C. ship in 1688 the Company has
been on intimate and friendly
terms with the Indians, and the exhibit of Indian relics will thus bc of
uniqc interest. This will be of all
the greater value sinee Indian skill
in handicraft is even now almost only
a memory of past days. The other
sections of the museum will tell the
tale of the entry of ths whhe man Into the West, and the up-building of
Isolated trading potts that hnve become Important and fast growing
cities.
The photographs reproduced herewith give an excellent Idea of the
splemlld beginning this exhibit has
made. One item of particular Interest is the splendidly built model of
the "Nonaueh Ketch," the flrtt HmJ-
tcv't Bay Company ship to arrive in
Canadian waters. Prince Rupert and
associates outfitted two ships, the
"Eaglet" and the "Nonsuch,"   These
Thames, near London, in June, 1MB.
The "Eaglet" tnrn**d baek from a
point near Hudson Strait, but the
"Nonsuch" proceeded and on September 2"lh, I'i'*, anchored In the
South of James Hay. Then and there
a fort was built and named Fort
Charles, and the river flowing Into
the Bay was named Rupert's River.
Owing to the cargo of furs brought
back by the "Nonsuch" in the summer of 1669, a charter for trading
rights was applied for and resulted in
Ilie charter granted by King Charles
the Second, on May fad, 1670, to
Prince Rupert ana his aseodetes
forming the "Governor and Company of Adventurers of England
Trading into Hudson's Bay," And
thus l>;***»n the great Company.
The exhibit includes a large num
ber of important and exceedingly interesting documents and maps, as
well as a large collection of tools,
household utensils, and weapons of
by-gone days.
Tlle later history of Western Canada Is the history of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, the building of
which resulted ia the creation of a
nation west of the Great Lakes, and
these two mat Institutions are still
at work at tlieir task of nation huHd-
Ing, and preserving the hietoryt? of
Canada's past. The Canadian Pad-
tic has also established an historic
muteum at Lake Windermere, B.C.,
in memory of David Thompson, the

Are was a little girl whom Mr. Smith
did not remember having seen before
Wishing with his usual kioJIiness to
make her feel at ease, he beamed
upon hear, and said heartily, "Hello!
Isn't this a new faco?"
A deep red aiowly submerged the
little girl's freckles, "No," she stammered, "it isn't new. It's just been
washed.    That's all."
Wise is the mau who does
