Comment on Failure of
Third Party to Prove Its
Charges Before Royal
Kettle Valley Orchardist
"Tell me what you Know is tm-*
I ch-Isdcm aa well as yon."
Victoria, March 6—During the
past week, or since the adjourn-*
meot of the royal commission od
Pacific Qreat Eastern railway mat.
ters, it is generally conceded tbat tbe
third party under General McRae
failed miserably in tbeir attempts
to discredit tbe government, Hou.
William Sloan end W. J. Bowser.
Editorial comments in tbe leading
newspapers of British Columbia,
whether politically biased or inde
pendent, show tbie.
The Daily Province si.ys: "When
the heads of lbe (bird party formulated charges aguintU Mr. Bowser
and Mr. Sloan the confidence of the
average citizen in bigb public officials was somewhat shaken. He
oould not conceive of responsible
men making accusations such as
these unless there wsb direct evidence to back them up. What that
evidence was baaed upon, readers
muat judge for themselves. That the
charges failed of proof does not
mean that elections in British Columbia are won altogtber by prayars
or tbat there are no such things as
oempaign funds. But it may be
taken as fairly showing that the
public men of the province are essentially honest. As for this talk
of corruption, we should hear no
more of it. It gives the province a
bad name; it disouruges interest in
public affairs and trust in public
men; it diverts attention from vital
issues and saps the energy of the
administration. Woist of all, per*
hape, it deters many • man of judg*
ment, character and ability from
entering public life. It is time to go
to work."
Similar opinions are expressed by
other journals, and while this week
will see the commencement of the
trial of remaining charges before
the commission, tbe public bas lost
interest: However, every opportuni.
ty is to be given tbe third party to
prove ite allegations of extravagance and unbusinesslike administration. On tbe otber had, a careful
checking up of tbe charges to be
heard before Mr. Justice Galiiber,
and a study of the rebuttal evidence
in the bands of the government
counsel, leaves no doubt in tbe
mind of the careful observer that
there has been nothing to conceal
and that the handling of tbe Pacific
Great Eastern has been carried along
on sensible, economic lines.
What remains for tbe public to
grasp, if it has not already kone so,
is that British Columbia bas already
entered upon a momentous era of
progressive development. Thie
provinoe has the resources, undoubtedly. It has public men of
integrity, sagacity and industry.
The confidence of the electorate in
the administration is alone needed
to ensure the future of British Columbia, but without that confidence
it is difficult for tbe most able
government to carry on.
Premier Oliver haB just announced
that be is including in his fight for
cheaper freight rates the lowering of
rates on grain imported into British
Columbia for domestic use. The res.
ductions granted by the board of
railway commissioners applied only
to grain for export. In the meantime it is costibg a grsat deal more
than it should to have prairie grain
for provincial use shipped here.

players have been seen intermingling

J. J, Campbell, of Nelson, direc
tor and member of the advisory
board of tbe Associated Growers of
British Columbia^ Limited, declares
tbat last year $1,000,000 was gained
to the fruit growers as compared
with conditions in 1922.
He says that in this regard he
was taking into account United
States and Great Britain prices for
the two years.
It is expected, Mr. Campbell
states, tbat apples still in storage,
uot more tban 100 cars, will be
cleared out in a few weeks. Prices
iu England are declared to have
been very good lately.

Recent Amendments
to the Game Act
A recent amendment to the game
act, which does not seem to be gen
erally known, includes in tbe fur-
bearing classification wolverine and
lynx, two animals wbich up to ths
present time have not been classed
undcj this head. Tbe result is that
these animals came under the close
season regulations, and it is unlawful to kill or trap them. A number
of these animals bave recently been
brought in, and to tbe disappoint*
ment of those who had captured
them they were confiscated. As the
change is not generally known it is
not likely prosecutions will be
pressed, though warnings are being
sent out whenever occasion presents
itself. Another regulation provides
that ail deer which are killed must
have tbe heads left on tbe carcass
when being brought in.

Tbe Canadita Pacific Railway ia
tflia year (fclebratir.g the twentietk
anniversary of the foundation of tha
Company's system of pensions for
thc tNnploytess. j .
It was in 1902 that the Board at
Direetors, under the Presidency of
Lord Siiauijhr.etsy, looked into the
future for cue i-ena-fit of these who
were laying- the foundations of Um
service that was to take so large a
part in the up-buiiding of Canada.
In December, 1902, the director!
passed a resolution stating that a
time had come when provision ihould
be made for officers and permanent
tmployees who, after long years of
faithful service, had reached an age
when they were unequal to tlie
further performance of their duties,
and announcing that a plan of superannuation had Men determined upon.
The plan wu a generous one.
The Company provides! all the money
necessary, and the employees were
not callsd upon to contribute to it
jn any way whatever. In 1803 when
it was first nut into effect Canadian
Pacific employees numbered about
40,000. To-day they approximate
80,000, and every one of them, from
the humblest stenographer, office
boy, or "track walker" or even tha
minor employee at some far-off outpost in China or in Europe, has old-
age sustenance guaranteed so long
as he or she stays with the Company.
Some Statistics
The Company's first contribution
to the pension fund was $250,000
which was •■-.-pplemented by annual
grants starling at $80,000 which
have, from time to time, been increased, until for some years past it
has been $500,000 annually. To tha
end of 1922 the Company had contributed a total of $4,715,000 to the
fund while payments on pensions had
amounted to $8,867,802, leaving a
balance to the credit of the fund of
$1,640,108. In 1922 the total payments mada amounted to $508,051,
and at October 1st of this year ths
total number of the Company's pensioners was 1,182, each of whom
was drawing an average of $35.92
per month. It is of interest to note
that since the pension fund became
operative, 877 pensions have become
inoperative through the death of the
Having In view conditions of increased living costs which then prevailed the world over, the Company
in 1919 allowed the pensioneri an
additional bonus of twenty-five per
cent of their regular allowance.
Thia went into effect on May 1st of
thst year, and continued until thc
end of 1922. In view of the modification of the condition that made
it necessary, that bonus is this year
set at twenty per cent.
*     Kept in Canada
By far the greater part of this
money is of course distributed in
Canada, just as is the case with the
Company's vast payroll of over
$100,000,000 annually, and the many
millions it yearly spends on the
purchase of supplies u.-.der the pel-
icy of distributing as much of its
expenditure as is possible ia the
country it exists to serve.        *
The operation of the fund is simplicity itself. Upon reaehing the
age of 65 every employee who has
joined the staff before reaching the
age of forty is entitled to retirement
if the Company so desires aad ean
claim a pension of one per cent, ef
the average monthly pay received
for the ten years preceding retirement for every year in which he haa
heen lp *s*a Comoany's service. Thjf

Notes, Notions and Notables
"And three golden apples fell down from
heaven, one for the story-teller, one for the
hearer, and the other for the whole world."
That was the beautiful style in which the
Armenian romancers.used to end their tales.
Of late years it has been the custom of the
British Colombia orchardists, when they
picked their golden apples, to repeat, "One
for the transportation companies, one for the
jobbers, and the other for the whole army of
parasites." They never mentioned themselves
as beneficiaries.
If all the nations now planning   airship
trips to the north pole during the coming sum
mer are successful in their attempts, a first
class interpreter should be able to make a
comfortable living at that point.
From Point Barrow to the north pole is
1287 miles across a region that is virtually
unexploeed.% Admiral Peary found that the
sea covers the north pole, but between the
pole and Alaska may be a great island or
group of islands yet undiscovered." Flying
over that region in summer, the naval aviators
will almost certainly be able to add something
to our knowledge of geography.
marked with a cross and the church took over
the custom. Christians, of course, associate
the buns with the bread of the Paschal feast
and their spices with the-spices of Our
Saviour's tomb. The eating of cakes and kindling of bonfires are the two earliest methods
of celebrating that the world knows. The first
gods and goddesses, evolved from the heathen
miud, were connected with fire or sun worship, and with a kind of earth deity, or giver
of plenty. In old China this gcddess,described
as the Queen of Heaven, was worshipped with
cakas. A similar form of worship prevailed
also in ancient Mexico, early Britain and in
northern Europe. The word "bun" is said to
be a corruption of "bous," which in the tongue
spoken by the ancient Egyptians signified a
It is a common superstition among the
savages of widely separated races, thatr'in an
eclipse the sun or moon is being devoured Oy
some great monster. The natives of Africa
beat drums and tomtoms to frighten the monster away. The Moguls bring forth all their
rude instruments of music and make as much
noise as they can to drive the attacking Arachs
(Rahu) from the sun or moon Even as late as
the seventeenth century, the Irish or Welsh,
during eclipses, ran about beating kettles ai d
pans. The American Indians shared the same
superstition and with frightful howls and war-
whoops shot arrows into the sky to drive the
enemy away. The Caribs believed the de
vourer to be the demon Maboya (hater of
light), and wonld dance and howl together all
night long in the hope of scaring him from his
prey. The Peruvians perhaps excelled all
others in the fearful din they raised. Imagin
ing a like evil spirit in the shape of a huge
beast, when the moon was eclipsed, they
shouted, sounded musical instruments and
beat their dogs, whose bowls increased the
hideous chorus,
A man in Chicago the other day tried the
ancient stunt of "licking the editor" and
landed in jail. He escaped very luckily. Licking the editor has become a lost art. During
the first few years of The Sun's existence it
was a dull week when the editor was not
threatened with half a dozen maulings. We
really used to enjoy those threats, made by
fakers who have long sinco passed off the stage.
We acquired our training in the fighting line
early in life. When still in the bloom of youth
we were working on the St. Louis Poet-
Dispatch. One day Col. Slay back, a local
politician who imagined that he had been
maligned by the paper. In a heated argument, in which guns were drawn on both
sides, Slayback was shot dead by Col. Cock
rell, managing editor of the Post Dispatch.
Col. Cockrell was subsequently cleared on a
self-defense plea, and when Joseph Pulitzer,
the owner ofthe Post Diepatch, acquired the
New York World he took Col. Cockrell along
with him as his managing editor. It was
Col. Cockrell's powerful editorials that virtu
ally made both the Post-Dispatch and the
New York World.
Recently a strange story came from Germany to the effect that a woman in Kiel had
baintained a suit in court against a neighbor
for stealing a darning needle, the value of
which in the depreciated currency was put at
more than five hundred million marks! It
seems incredible that the courts can be used
for such trifling cases, or that lawyers can be
found to couduct a case for any sum that
would make profitable to the complainant a
suit for the recovery of a darning needle,what-
ever its nominal value But the story shows
what a topsy turvy state all values in Germany have been in.

The cream of the forensic talent of British
Columbia—like grubs boring into a fat cheese
—gathered at the provincial capital to ply
their skill. The hotel lobbies filled with emi
nent K.C.'s, with red bags over their shoulders
and blue ruin in their hearts; sifting buried
garbage dumps in a vain quest for some token
of corruption; snatching at the uninformed
street corner and poolroom gossip; burning
the midnight oil as they cudgel their high-
priced legal brains to think up some line of
peurile questioning, in the hope that public
confidencemaybe undermined and their ctients,
their friends and themselves enabled to burrow
their way to power.
While all the time the real P.G.E. question
is how to fill up the great aching- plains of the

its timber and mineral wealth, create traffic
and freight for our railroad and bring confi
dence, peace, prosperity and contontment to
the people of this province.

The Objects of thu Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Some 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 miuy of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every yj*r; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
school age with nor.ual, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces 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
yoars ago, the flrst 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 the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaad. While the
Home is to bo 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.

"If it had not been ior Tanlac I would still be a
sick, discouraged woman, for nothing else seemed
to do me   any good," says Mrs. Edward   Gibbs.
All the advertising in tbe world
and all the sales efforts combined
oould not have made tbe great success for TANLAC that has beeu
attained, unleee this reconstructive
tonic possessed merit of tbe greatest degree. Over 40 Million Bottles
of Tanlao have been sold and the
demand today is greater than ever
That TANLAC possesses merit
and haB brought relief to hundreds
of thousands ol persons is attested
by tbe great number of testimonials that have been received by tbe
company from people in every
Btate of the Union aud every province of Canada. .. Tliere are over
100,000 Buch statements on file with
the compauy, all ringin-s with sincere praise for TANLAC and what
it has accomplished.
Here are excerpts from a few of
the 100,000 sta-ements on file:
Mrs. Edward Gibbs^ Lancaster,
Pa.—"For 2 years in iigeation de .
prived me of nearly all the pleasure
of living If it had not been for
TANLAC I would sti 1 be a sick and
discouraged, woman, for nothing
efse seemed to do me any good."
Mrs. Mary A. Benson, Seattle,
Wash.: "Following an operation
my stomach and nerves seemed to
give way and I became almost helps,
less. An a last resort I tried
TANLAC.    I    began   to improve
from tbe very first, gained 29 lbs.,
and todav am feeling fine."
O E Moore, Kansas City, Mo.:
"My stomach seemed to pain me
constantly, food seemed to do me
no good, I would bloat up witb gas,
lost my strength, and could nol
sleep or rent. I was on tbe downgrade all the time. Tanlac corrected my troubles and put me in
excellent shape."
Thomas Lucas, Peterboro, On«
tario: "Well, sir, buying TANLAC
waB the best investment I ever
made, for it built up my health and
strength to wbere I haven't a complaint in cbe world."
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph E. Kaake,
Detroit, Mich.: "For mom than a
year uur three children, aged 2, 4
and 6, had been so peaked and lifeless that we were worried about
them. Tbeir stomachs were upset,
appetites poor, the color bad left
their cheeks, their nightF were restless and during the day they would
just mope around, taking no interest in play or anything else. Tbey
