Victoria, January 30.—Another
Instance of what the financial world
thinks ol British Columbia ia to be
found in the price wbicb Hon. Jobn
Hart, minister of finance, obtsiued
for the 12,000,000 worth of bonds
Jut sold. Twenty-five year 6 per
cent bonds went for 96.877, and fbe
return figures out at 5.22. In other
words, this price is tbe best secured
since the province last floated a S
per oent loan, a little better than
the last loan and a good deal above
tbe reoent western provincial loans?.
Hall of the new loan goes to take
np treasury bills sold to the bank to
raise money fo capital outlays on
university buildings and trunk
roads. The other balf will refund
the million dollar loan wbich matured last October. ThiB loan waa
made just before tbe 1920 election
•nd bore interest at 6 per cent; and
the price at whicb it was sold in New
York, together witb the premium
wbioh was received wben tbe pur
chase price was p-id here, mnde the
•ost to tbe province 4.79 per cent.
Considering premiums paid on remittances ol interest and principal,
Hie actual cost of the loan was 6.473
pet cent. Mr. Hart figured on clearing off this loan on a S.30 per cent
basis, but succeeded in doing so on
4.0.23 basis.
Meanwhile tbe pessimistic howling of opposition members io the
legislature appears to have had no
effect upon the financial bouses, who
readily purchase British Columbia
securities at a better figure tbao any
other province in Canada is able to

ing to motor vehicles in British Col
umbia, whioh shows the remarkable
growth nf the province in this re
gard. Last year the minister stated
there were 39,500 motor licenses
issued, as compared with 6688 in
1914, or an increase in ten years of
over 600 per cent.
The government has kept pace
with the increase in motor traffic
and -during the five years ending
March 31 next the expenditures on
provincial bighwaye will have
•mounted to $7,760,000. During
the last fiscal year $1,733,821 has
been spent in this way.
Mr. Manson states that ths motor
revenue for the past five years has
•mounted to 13,834,000. The policy
has been toahare this with the mu
ttioipalities and since 1921 a third
of thia revenue has been paid over.
The sum ol $2,500,000 has been left
tor the government, wbile in that
time $6,500,000 net has been spent
On the roads ot British Columbia.
Hon. W H. Sutherland, minister
of public works, shows that since
the present government took office
the mileage of roads and trails bas
increased enormously. In 1917 tbe
province had 12,225 miles of roads
•nd 8000 miles ot trails. Today
there are 16,200 miles of roads and
2200 miles of trails. This means
that the government haB built upwards of 1000 miles of roads and
160 miles of trails each year. The
province also has 60 miles of bridges.
Fanners Needing Help
Gan Secure Immigrants
Winnipeg, Jannary 81.—Prospec.
tive settlers from many countries,
directed by tbe overseas organization of the Canadian National railways, will begin to rsach Winnipeg
about March 15, and many of these
newcomers will be anxious to secure
work on farms in order that they
may learn by aotual experience tbe
Canadian methods of carrying on
farm work. In order to assist these
settlers and also the farmers who
require their services during tbe
spring, summer and fall, tbe Canadian National railways have placed
application forms in the hands of
all agents on C.N.R, weetern lines,
whicb farmers can complete and
send in without financial obligation
of any kind. -Officials of the colon,
ization and developmen tdepartment
of tbe railway in Winnipeg will then
place the prospective worker in
touch with tbe prospective employer and thus get the settler away
to a good start.
It abould oot be overlooked tbat
tbe immigraot wbo ie most likely to
be of uae to the western farmer ia tbe
man wbo comes early in the spring,
prepared for a year's work, ratber
tban tbe man whocomesfora sbort
time, tempted by higb wages whicb
are paid during rush period, and it
is strongly recommended that, aB
far as possible, help should be engaged by the year.
No charge ia made for tbis service and tbe company assumes no
obligation except to bring the
worker and hie prospective employer together for their mutual benefit.
Farmers wbo anticipate needing
help during the coming year are
urged to make application early and
thus take steps to assist the vigorous immigration campaign being
carried out by tbe Canadian Na
tional railways.
Tbe aggreasive immigrotion and
colonization plan being followed by
theCanadian National railways will
result iu'tbe bringing to Canada of
many thousands of good citizens
during the next few months. To
ensure theae newcomers work is the
most practical way ot ensuring
their succeaa. By the method out
lined the employer of farm labor
can supply this cooperation and at
the same time secure help for him
eelf for tbe coming year.

The meetiug closed at a late hour,
everyone feeling that the Boy Scouts
were off to a good start for the year
without further delay. The yields
secured from these fillers to date
may be of some interest to apple
growers. Tbe varieties used were
Jonathan, Wagner, Cox's Orange,
Duchess and Yellow Transparent.
The total yield of each variety for
tbe eight years sin e date of planting, figured on the basis of forty
eight trees to the aore, is as follows
Jonthan 377 boxes, Wagner 301.5,
Duchess 291, Yellow Transparent
220.5, Cox's Orange 163.
If is apparent that even tbe highest producing filler, Jonathan, gave
an average annual yield oi less tban
fifty boxes to the acre. When the
cost of trees, planting, cultivation,
spraying, pruning, is considered, it
doubtful whether even the Jonathan
aud Wagner have justified their
TheBe observaiions suggest that
the planting of filllers between permanent apple treeB set thirty feet
apart is a practice of questionable
commercial value. The problem of
planting fillers aod the time for removal is one which the individual
grower must decide for himself. In
making this decision, however, he
should remember tbat if he expects
hia permanent trees to produce large
crops of marketable fruit he muat
be prepared to allow tbem ample
space to develop.
Can Not Dispense
With Canadian Wheat
The superior quality of Canadian
bard spring wheat is recognized by
tbe United SlnteB millers, especially
by opejators in the Northwestern
aratea. Even at the high rate ot
duty imposed by the Fordney tariff,
large quantities of Canadian wheat
continue to pass over tbe border at
Duluth to be used in improving tbe
quality of American flour. According to United States customs service reports, tbe importations of
wheat at Duluth amounted to 11.■
602,631 bushels in 1920; 8,763,687
bushels in 1921; 343,165 bushels in
1922, and 1,010,123 for the first
eleven months of 1923. Even with
the amount of Canadian wheat going into ihe Northwestern states,
Hour milling is not flourishing. According to the Northwestern National Bank Review, published in
Minn apolis, flour mills in that
state were in December ruuning nt
one half capacity orless, and toe
output was booked almost entirely
for domestic trade. In contrast
with this, the readers of this Review ara told, Canadian mills are
running at full capacity on export

Notes, Notions and Notables
The remarkable increase of 34 per cent ib
the amount of timber scaled  in   British Columbia last year over 1922 is a forcefel illus
tration of the immense value of lumbering and
.allied industries in this province.    The* total
s3ilo in 1923 was 2,342,180,000 board feet, as
o-up.ired with  1,890,158,000 board feet the
pi'j;) ling year.   Federal   ii^ure.-s, admittedly
o i>;i'vative, place the -g-inding timber ofthe
province at 360 billion board feet.   The figure
is g3-ici*ally given by the provincial authorities
and timber experts as 400 billion feet. In 1922
the loss through forest fires was  very  heavy.
Last year, happily, fire losses Mere but a small
part of those of the  farmer "dry" year.    The
forest branch is credited with an efficient con
servation policy, in so far as protection against
fire is concerned, but even at that the annual
waste through  the ravages of the destroying
element is heavy.    Three years ago the total
capacity of provincial sawmills   was placed at
2,500,000,000 board   feet  per annum.    Last
year's scale slightly surpassed that fig.ire, but
many new mills have been established,so that
the present capacity is probably three billion
feet per year.   Adding a mean average loss
through fire at a billion feet, the capital stock
of timber is being depleted by approximately
four billion feet each year  On the other hand,
the annual increase of British Columbia timber through growth alone is piaced at eight
billion feet. A portion of this increase naturally occurs inremote districts and  in forests
where logging operations at present are not
profitable. But the fact remains that with the
practice of the intelligent conservation methods now being followed by the lands department, careful cutting and  modern reforestation, British   Columbia has an almost inexhaustible asset in her forest resources.   The
government is credited with having placed the
industry on its feet, largely through the great
assistance which has been given the marketing of lumber.

An eminent professor of Assyrian and
Babylonian literature has devoted much time
and study to the cuneiform tablets unearthed
at Nipour. These tablets reveal the fact that
there has been more than one effort on the
part of ancient scribes who lived prior to the
time of Abraham to give a history of the
world, beginning with the story of creatiou
and extending to the time the tablets were
written. ; These tablets relate that a famine
preceded the flood. The inscriptions say that
the people practiced cannibalism during the
five foodless years. The tablets also lead to
the belief that the Hebrews were '^natives of
Amurru, a region between Babylonia and the
Mediterranean, and that the antiquity of their
culture is as great as that of Egypt or Baby
Mah Jongg, the "new" game which hasjust
"happend" along to agitate lovers of games of
chance, is only about 3000 years old, accord
ing to legend. Like such a vast number of
other things good, bad or indifferent, it had
its urigin in China. A fisherman named Sze is
said to have lived on the shores of East China
Lake, near Mungpo. He was esteemed rich
and owned a number of boats. sSomeofhis
fishermen were inexperienced hands and suffered from seasickness. When they fell sick
they had to be taken ashore. .Seasickness sSze
regarded as a disease of the mind, so he got
his nine brothers together and their combined
intelligence produced "Mah Jongg" as i
means of helping landsmen to forget them
selves when the boat was tossing. The game
is also known by the names of Mah Chang,
Mall Choh, Pung Chow, Mah Juck, Pe Ling,
Mali Dia, Pung Woo, Mah Cheyk.
Mighty mastodons, infinitely larger than the
largest elephant,are said'to have once rambled
over Canada.,; The skeleton of one of these
enormous creatures was discovered near London, Ont., with tusks eight feet long. The
greatest mastodon cemetery in North America
is the valley of Red Deer in Alberta. London,
Ont., is about 700 miles south of Red Deer
and nearly 1800 miles east of it. Through this
enormous territory, and probably also far be
yond the bounds of it, roamed these and other
monsters. The general opinion of geologists is
that the mastodon became extinct in the
Pleistocene age, the period before the advent
of man upon earth, but many authorities think
it highly probable that the mastodon and man
were contemporary for a short period on the
North American continent. It belongs to the
same family as the elephant, which has sur
vived in Africa and in Asia. What Canada
looked like when it was inhabited by the
mastodon must be left to conjecture.
!2 When the news was flashed over the world
a few years ago that General Allenby had
conquered the ancient city of Jerusalem, a
woman was heard to exclaim, "Gee! I always
thought Jerusalem was in heaven!" Almost
as vague are many people with the regard to
Ophir, mentioned in the Bible in connection
with gold. However, there really was an Ophir
famous for its mines. Ophir was frequently
visited by the ships of Solomon and of the
Phoenicians. It is several times mentioned in
the Old Testament, but its location has never
been satisfactorily determined. Among the
many places in the writings of travellers which
have been identified with Ophir, may bo men
tioned Armenia, the Molucas, Peru, Iberia,
Phrygia, Africa, India, Arabia, Malacca, San
Domingo, Mexico, New Guinea and Ormuz.
In all probability, however, Ophir was situ
ated either on the east coast of Africa, in
Arabia or in India.
It's a bother to have to read from a heavy
book. They thought the same some centuries
ago. Prof. F. W. C Meyer of Rochester re
cently received a German folio Bible printed
in 1672, weighing twenty-five pounds, and the
title page bore this comforting legend, which
I translate: "Now, however, through the grace
of God, we have for the first time printed
this qook in comforable and readable shape.'

A monument to the memury of Pierre Laclede was recently unveiled at St Louis, Mo.
Laclede was the founder of that prosperous
city. One hundred and sixty years have
passed since he established his camp there.
Ho was buried on the shores of the Mississippi river somewhe.ie near the mouth of the
Arkansas; but companions who went later to
disinter his remains and bring them to St.

away. Laclede, a native Frenchman, sold his

Good neighbors don't say anything

The Objects of thi- Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To pr-vide 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 m*ny of such, unfortunates, who, for the laek of suoh service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with nor rial, 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 tbat there
are at tbe presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has 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 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 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
wiil be promptly acknowledged.

A breath from the freezing winds of
the Canadian Arctic, with something of its loneliness, its savagery,
its call upon the elemental qualities

itself in his handsome head, with its
sharp ears and nose, its steel-hard,
flaming eyes, its gleaming fangs and
its great ruff of fur. He is a dark grey
giant, almost one hundred weight of
muscle,   bone  and  sinew,   ferocity,
grim determination and unwavering
delity. He was born away up within
the Arctic Circle, at Lac-du-Brochet,

purchased, to Quebec, a distance of
well over two thousand miles, was an
exciting and extraordinary experience

On a Subject of Transcendant Importance to
You and to all Mankind
The Hopefor Distressed Humanity
What hope have you for the relief of
suffering and sorrow in the world, and
the distress among the nations? Can you
base your hope on any one of our great
statesmen; on any League of Nations?
NO—they have all failed to bring peace
and happiness to the world. Where.then,
shall we look for a savior?
Hear what some of our great statesmen
say relative to the present distress in the
world; their frank admission that they
see no way out. Then hear what the Bible
says about the only way, whereby sin
and suffering, sorrow and sickness, pain
and even death itself is to be destroyed;
and peace and happiness, and everlasting
life on earth shall be the ultimate blessing to all mankind.
"For nation shall rise against nation,and kingdom
against kingdom; and there shall be famines and
pestilences; and earthquakes in divers .places. All
these are the beginning of sorrow."—Matt. 24:7,8
"And God shall wipe away all tears from their
eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall tliere be any more pain,
for the former things are passed away."—Bev. 21,4.

the annual general meeting of the
British Columbia division of thel
Canadian Institute of Mining and I
Metallurgy.in the Hotel Vancouver,

cuseed at tbe technical sessions are
of timely interest and involve considerations in wbich the general
public is equally concerned witb
those directly engaged in the minx
ing industry io the province.
Tbe   material welfare of  British
Columbia is   largely dependent on
the prosperity of the mining industry. All will agree that everything
possible should be done to ensure
tbat genera, conditions  shall be as
conducive ae they can be made to
an uninterrupted   and progressive
expansion of the industry.   Certain
existing economic  and Industrial
conditions are exerting a retarding
effect   on   our    mining   industry.
These unfavorable conditions may
be removed or at least ameliorated,
Ways and means in otber directions
of  stimulating   progress need conxj
stantly to be explored. The promotion   of   tbe   welfare of the miningI
industry is tbe principal purpose of
tbe  Canadian   Institute of Mining
and. Metallurgy ae   set forth in its
charter. In keeping with this  purpose, attention   at tbe forthcoming
meeting will he mainly   directed to
a survey of industrial conditions as
affecting   mining in the province,
with   a   view   to their betterment. |
The subjects to be immediately considered are included under   the respective heads of, "Conditions   Faxl
vorable and Unfavorable to Mining
in British Columbia,"  "The   Disabilities of the Coal Minsug in Britnl
ish  Columba  and Possible Remedies," "The Possibilities for an Iron
