Victoria, January 16 —Premier
Oliver visited   Alberta   this week
and addressed tbe United  Fn r »
on Wednesday uigbt on tho freight
rates question. Before leavi.bg Vic*

Colombia had received all tht- eon-
aideration from the bour I of railway commissioners that wae to be
expected. That body took tbe stand
he explained, tbat higher fr-i-.it
rates were justified in the mountain
"However. I intend to carry tb e
issue to the foot of the throne il
necessary," d clared tbe government leader, "aud under tbe term*'
of anion this province is enti led to
an equalisation of freight rites-."
In Edmonton tbe premier dis-
cnssed the issue chiefly from the
angle of provincial rights, showing
that if tbe principle* of confederation were lived up to Hritish Co I urn
bia would witness the removal of
■all discrimination, and this would
result in a further reduction of sev
oral oents per hundred pounds on
grain shipments. Alberts would
therefore profit to that extent
Premier Oiiver was assured of tbe
■olid support of tbe sister province.
It is expected bere that following
the royal commission's sittings on
Pacific Qreat Eastern ruilwuy matters tbe premier will proceed to Ottawa to continue freight rates case

Little antagonism is being registered against the governmedt's new
redistribution bill, tbe act being
generally accepted as eminently
fair. Still, in Cowichan a deter.
mined drive is being made to have
restored tbe political identity of
that eieotoral district. Premier
Oliver dubs the move as a "tempest
in a teacup," pointing out that the

rural constituency in lbe province,

During the holiday season just past
the public cooperated with the post
office in the master of early mailing,
and Postmaster Hnll says he is glad
to state that this cooperation helped
to a considerable extent to reduce
last minute rush. There is still another way in which tho public can
cooperate, and that is hy avoiding
unnecessary enquiries Just because
yourfriend didn't receive that gift
when you thought he would, or neglects to acknowladge it, it i.s not
proof tbat it is lost   Perhads it wasn't
posted—it muy still be in some one's
pocket or tucked away in a corner. First be sure it was actually
posted and correctly addressed, then
remember that some persons will insist on bringing their mail to the
post office at the lastjminute and there
is certain to be at least some conges,
tion and delay. For this reason, you
must allow more than the actual time
for delivery. Lastly, he sure that the
addressee did not receive the article
if possible, get a definite statement
covering this. If you neglect the aba ve
points and rush in with your enquiry,
in many cases you canse unnecessary
work  and   expense to the post office

The Pacific Great
Eastern Enquiry
Attorney General Manson says it
will be another week before he has
completed plans for the royal commission to enquire into the affairs of the
Pacific Great Eastern railway and the
Northern Construction company; also
charges made by the Provincial party
against Hon. William Sloan, minister of mines, and W. J. Bowser, K.
C, leader of the opposition.
Mr. Manson has not gone all
through the mass of material which
might come before the commission
and declares that while the enquiry
will be thorough, he haB no intention
of submitting extraneous matters,
which would have no bearing upon
the issue and only lead to useless sittings at a heavy cost to the public.
Little is heard in political circles
but discussions of the investigation.
Adherents of the third party are hoping against hope that "something will
happen," but the feeling is growing
even in the hew party that "they
went too far," and that the elimination of tho Provincials will follow the
enquiry. Mr. Bowser thanks tha new
party for carrying on his campaign
against the government at its own
expense, while Liberals are smiling
up their sleeves at the whole affair.
They have the assurance of Hon. Mr.
Sloan and Premier Oliver that the
party's skirts are clean, and foresee
not only a sweeping vindication bnt
the hearty endorsation of tbe administration.
Card of Thanks
I wish te take this opportunity of
thanking the many friends who accorded me such generous support at
the recent poll for police eommis*
sioner, and assure them I will con.

Notes, Notions and Notables
Allssigns poiut to a big oolooizaation year
in British Columbia. Federal expe.its show
that there are 22,000,000 acres of land in the
Pacific province suitable for agriculture Less
than ;>00,000 acres are being cultivated. The
doubling of that acreage would offset present
importations of foodstuffs. The provincial
minister of lands is at present in Ottawa,
where he will endeavor to reach a settlement
on colonization matters with Dominion officials. The minister of railways is completing
plans for the settlement of lands along the Pacific Great Eastern railway. Premier Oliver
recently declared his belief that the provincial
railway line should be completed to Prince
George as soon as possible. This year the
minister of public works will concentrate upon
the construction of settlement roads. The
minister of agriculture announces the practical completion of the Sumas reclamation pro
ject and predicts that the production of the
new Brea will duplicate that of any other
thriving district in the province. Fertile lands
in superabundance,- the greatest per capita
railway mileage on the co.itinent, a network
of settlers'roads and trails, unparalleled climatic conditions, and waiting markets. These
are the lure already directing the eyes of tens
of thousands of homeseekers towards British
Columbia. The wise selection of new citizens
and a careful administration alone are necessary to place the great basic industry of agriculture upon a sound foundation. These matters are receiving the ful! attention of the
government at Victoria.
The result of the poll in the city election
yestherday seems to satisfy the average ratepayer. He has no reason for grumbling, because he had enough material to choose from.
If he hasn't got what he wants, its his own
fault. Personally, The Snn likes the composition of the new council. There isn't any dead
timber in it, The candidates in the late election who failed to receive enough votes to
connect them with an office are taking their
defeat philosophically, and the danger of their
adopting| the Mexican method of protesting
againstjthe imaginary insult seems to be over.
Patriotic societies in the state of Massachu-
sets recently became agitated over a geological report which stated that a fragment of
historic Plymouth Rock showed that the stone
came from Canada. On the strength of the
first announcement by the university and the
subsequent agitation caused by the Bay state,
the acting governor ordered an examination
ofthe rock. While the impression seems to
prevail in Massachusetts that the rock recently was imported from Canada, an eminent
authority says a little matter of 40,000 years
has intervened since the transfer—when a
huge glacier moved southward and covored
New England with ice. The university report
stated that the rock is clearly a glacial boulder brought to its position by ihe from the
Tho origin of playing cards is lost in obscurity. The cards are supposed to have been
originally prepared for amusement of a mad
king. The four suits are said to represent the
four seasons. There are f fty-two cards, representing the fift-two weeks of the year and
365 spits representing the days. The four
kings when cards were first made were supposed to represent David, Alexander, Caesar
and Charlemagne. The four queens represented Argine, Judith, Esther and Athene, these
standing respectively for the ideas of birth,
fortitude, piety and wisdom. And the knaves
were merely unnamed knights, or else knights'
servants. Tha four suits, also, had special
significance, and were designed to stand for
different classes of the community. Hearts
were ecclesiastics or "choirmen," diamonds
were artisans, clubs were farmers and spades
were nobility and soldiers.
According to an electrical.expert, who has
made a special jstudy^of lightning, people in
the house are just about as safe in one place
as another. Rolling ,'iip in a feather bed or
under a blanket is senseless and ineffectual.
However, there are aT'ew spots more danger
ous than otqers. For instance, if you are in
direct line between two good-sized metal objects, such as a radiator and a rainspout by
the side of the house, you may be strnck by
direct cr indirect flashes of lightning. In seeking an outlet to the ground, lightning bas a
tendency to jump between two such metallic
bodies, rather than to take a direct course
through non conducting mediums. "A place,
of special danger is directly beneath a hanging
lamp globe suspended from the ceiling by a
chain. Lightning may follow the chain to its
end and then jump off."
"When deep, powerful love cools, marriage
should end in divorce."
So says a "popular" lady writer.
It would have been a good creed for our cave-
man^ancestors 50,000 years ago who used to
look up another mate as soon as they tired of
the old one. But these same ancestors^had so
little sense of responsibility to their children
that they didn't even know, in those days, that
babies had fathers.'
Marriage is not an institution for the amuse
ment of men and women, but for the protection of children   and the establishment of
Man has an instinct to hunt up another
mate when his "deep, powerful cools," but
fortunately marriage laws won't let him do it
too ofttn. Marriage is one of the few things
that distinguish modern man from man of 50,-
000 years ago. That shows that marriage is
an improvement.
Instead of pulling down marriage to man's
lower instincts the proper thing is to pull
man's Instincts up to the level of marriage.—

The Objects of thii Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, 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 mtny of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of suoh ser"
vice, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
school age with nor nal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is alarge and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tbe verious provinoes reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
ha3 yet been done f.*r those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home waa 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 tbat it is the only one ia 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 tbe Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wi-te, 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.

Grain Movement Over The Canadian Pacific Railway
Sept. 1    -   Dec. 12, 1923
Clickety-click, clickety-click... It is the Bound of car
wheels passing over the railroad tracks, and you
could stand and listen to tbe same clickety-click for 44
hours on end, if you were to watch that part of the
magnificent crop of Canada grown in districts served by
the Canadian Pacific railway and moved from the
harvest fields by that company. Imagine, if you can, a
train 881 mileB long, or as far as from Winnipeg to the
upper reaches of the Rocky Mountains. That is how
many freight cars there would be. But cars alone cannot
make a train. There are the engines, as well, and the road
has kept in the neighborhood of 670 freight engines
tugging grain trains east and west day and night
throughout the season and in addition to these there
sre 111 switch engines employed at terminals. The
season, be it understood, is taken as the period from the
opening of the Canadian crop year, Sept. 1 to the official
dose of navigation with regard to shipping insurance on
the Great Lakes, which falls Dec. 12.
So much for computation trains. In point of fact
however, the longest train which was made up during the
season consisted of 126 cars and was approximately 1
mile in length. It was operated from Stoughton to
Areola, Saskatchewan, on October 5th. The weight of
the train not including the engine totalled 7,946 tons,
of this 5,666 tons being freight. The train handled
185,000 bushels of wheat.
Now during the season, there were 88 days on which
cars could be loaded, for Sundays are excluded. During
those 88 days there were trains operated on an average
every 60 minutes day and night, trains carrying nothing
but grain mind you, for passenger traffic and other
freight business were conducted at the same time, and
on uninterrupted schedules too, be it noted. These trains
were on an average 46 cars long.
In all, from Sept. 1 to Dec. 12, 1923, there were
marketed in districts served by the Canadian Pacific
Railway more than 200,000,000 bushels of all grains th<-
largest quantity ever reported since the inception of the
road. Taking the pars loaded as more truly representative
of the activities of the company in the matter of grain
movement, these have been reported at 116,232 for the
period, representing 169,931,184 bushels. Suppose for
a moment that all that grain were to be dumped into a
river bed 100 feet wide and five feet deep, and that the
new 'river' were able to flow at an avenge rate for water,
say a mile an hour, then he who stood on the bank amd
had the patience to watch, might pitch bis tent and
picnic for three and one half days before this stream
would be dried up.
A second trip into the land of imagination and om
might put mountains in the background, and might
make those mountains up of all the grains kernels which
had been taken from the freight cars engaged in their
transportation. If the grain were heaped up on acre lots
of ground, there might well be three mountains, and eacb
one of them would tower 6,000 feet into the heavens.
The Canadian Pacific railway station at Lake Louise,
one of the highest in the Rocky Mountains, is 5,044
feet above sea level. In the three mountains would be
included oats, rye, barley, flax — all the coarse grains
commonly grown in the Dominion as well as wheat, but
if the latter were to be sorted out and put into mountains
by itself, supposing there were still to be three mountains,
then each of these would rise 4,200 feet from the ground
Banff itself is only 4,600 feet above the sea.
But after all, wheat is of little use in imaginary rivers
or even mountains, however high or picturesque they
may be. Let us consider what would happen if all the
wheat were made into flour (leaving coarse grains aside)
and kneaded up and baked into bread. If this were done
there would be approximately 104,700 miles of regulation
size, 16 ounce loaves, if they were placed end to end. This
tremendous string of loaves would stretch back and forth
across Canada, from Montreal to Vancouver 36 times.
If the loaves were laid side by side and end to end, they
would form a solid belt across the Dominion wider than
the height of a city lamp post. Again if they were piled
in a trans-Canada wall one loaf deep, the height of the
wall would be 12 feet.
A particularly interesting feature of the grain movement of the present season according to company
officials iB the increase which had been reported in the
amount of grain sent by Canadian Pacific to Vancouver
for export. In all there were 5,632 cars received
representing .S,0S7,784 bushels, or a very large percentage
of the total exports from Vancouver which aggregated
8,910,966 bushels to the United Kingdom, and 80,300
mostly to South America. Last season for the corresponding period there were 3,548 cars received at Vancouver
and 4.897,019 bushels exported.

rHESE are just n few pictures taken In Quebec. It is
not without reason that this province is becoming the
tourist resort of thc continent, for here is a country of
utmost fascination and intrigue. Quebec has an atmosphere all its own and, if it can be said, more of an old-
world atmosphere than has the old-world of today.
Quebec is the eighteenth century keeping pace with the
twentieth, yet retaining its identity.
One stops at little wayside shrines. The wooden
cross, the patron saint in effigy, the nurtured flowers, the
woman at her distaff, the white-walled houses close at
hand transport you to the distant land from whence the
original settlers came. Yet, over there, beyond that
little hedge or cedar fence the farmer gathers in hia
crop with up-to-date machinery, and stores it in a modern
barn. Behind, the hum of tne telegraph wire reminds
you that you are not living in a by-gone day and, if that
is not enough, through the not too distant fields, a huge
train thunders.
Near the white walls tlie lady of the house draws
water from the old-fashioned well, andbakes her bread
in an old brick oven, the like of which was used by her
ancestors in France four centuries ago. She spins her
own wool and shares with her husband a faith, which
though not old-fashioned, is almost as old as the Christian
era. A kindly hospitable soul is she, nor ia she always
backward in learning, for she probably attended the
convent of the Ursuljnes at Quebec, or la petite ecole at
Louiseville. And her husband—He may be content
to wear the homespun, to sit around the fire, or on the
threshold at night, to smoke his "Rouge Quesnel" and to
drive five miles to church early on all holidays in his
buggy or in the straw lined cart that ia used about the
farm, but he "knows his lettera" and, better still, he
knows how to farm.
The Quebec farm is usually up-to-date. Your
"habitant'* gets all that can be got from the soil, and if
■jou ait with him and talk you will see that ha gats the
fullness of life too. Give him the simple pleasures. He is
happy if he can re-tell the story of the big moose he shot
by "Lac Saint Pierre" and the bear. He is some trapper
too, "for sure I catch him lots of skin, met"
The "old man," the "old woman" and that large, very
large family, are content as seldom people are, and rightly
so, for theirs is a rich heritage, and beautiful. The mighty
St. Lawrence and its thousand tributaries, the glorious
Laurentians, with their wooded slopes, the forests, lakes
and myriad streams give them a country almost unexcelled for beauty. Game and fish abound as has been
discovered by sportsmen from outside. Moose, trout,
maskinonge, the big black bass, bear, deer and caribou.
From a historians point of view Quebec is the hunting
ground of the continent. Quebec city' is one huge
souvenir of the early days of Canadian settlement. Lost
and re-captured several times her old Walls still bear tha
marks of storm, and the old cannons still guard the dty
and the approaches to the citadel.
The history of Quebe-* Is the history of Canada, priest,
soldier and pioneer settler each having played a glorious
part in the making of it. With the fair Dominion as a
lasting memorial to their valor and courage, Quebec links
them with the present day; their faith, piety, and the
work they commenced are being preserved and carried
on by the present generation. The relics of their day
scattered here and there, and on almost every street, look
down or out upon the most modern improvements of
the age. the railways, and the huge Canadian Pacific
and other steamships at the docks, bot lose not their
identity, and in the case of buildings and public places,
their charm and interest.
All through Quebec province, and in the most unexpected places one comes across historic links with tha
past. Lik* her people Quebec is quiet, peaceful, and does
not crave the limelight, but Quebec fa not and cannot
be overlooked. It is an old world, lull of charm, witbia
the new.
Quebec city is again becoming the
Mecca of winter-loving tourists. Arrangements for the forthcoming
carnival are nearing completion and
sports of all kinds, including toboggan sliding on tht four-track chute
on Dufferin Terrace, are in full
The mild weather prevailing In
Quebec until recently greatly hindered lumbering operations in the
province. Thi, situation, according
to Mr. Piche, Chief ForeBter, has
been adjusted, however, by lets falls
of snow, and tb* total cut has been
brought up to normal.

Newsprint production in Canada
for the eleven months of 192g ending in November was 1,108,225 tons,
as compared with 998,988 tons for
the same period in 1922, the increase
being equal to 17 per cent. The
estimated production for the year i*
1,270,000 tons, or 189,000 tons over
that for 1922.
The value of Canada's 1923 grain
crop is estimated hy th* Dominion
Bureau of Statistic* at $892,572,300.
Of this total approximately |450,000
is credited to the three prairi* provinces. It is interesting to note that
while the figure* for Manitoba and
Saskatchewan are below those of the
year 1922, those of Alberta are above
fcy over $45,000,000.
Grain marketed along th* Canadian Pacific Railway in 1923 totalled
187,642,224 bushels, an increase of
83,324,619 bushels over any similar
fperiod in the railway's history. The
ncrease in bushels shipped was 13,-
086,730, or 9.2 pc-r cent over 1922,
and 83.1 per cent of the total amount
marketed had been shipped by December 3rd.
Uovern-ment statistics estimate the
apple crop of Canada for 1923 at
10,794,600 boxes, which, at an estimated average of $2 a box, makes
th* value a little over $21,000.(500.
By provinces the estimated production was as follows: Nova Scotia,
6,250,000 box**; British Columbia,
3,124,000; Ontario, 2,276,000; Que-
bee, 110,000; and New Brunswick,
