Vernon, November 23.—Ship*
ments ot fruit and vegetables from
the Okanagan up tn November 14
this year were 258 car? less than a
year ago, according to figures just
issued by the Canadian Pacific Railway company.
Up to last Wednesday 4588 cars
had left the valley, compared with'
4846 cars for tbe eame period a year
ago. Tbe smaller shipments this
year ia accounted for by the fact
that tbere are stiil left in tbe different districts many cars of apples.
which wben billed out will increase
toe total considerably.
It is stated tbat Okanagan fruit
houses contain at present more fruit
tban in any previous year.
Comparing Prosperity
of Yesterday With the
Conditions of Today
Is it not time the people of this
province became a little more retro*
spectiye? It is possible tbat tbe provincial government is not reaponsii-
ble forall the fa luree and misfits.
As a people we are too much spoons
fed. Our forefathers in the ofder
provinces went into tbe bush witb
a yoke of oxen, a cow, an axe, a hoe
and a scythe. Some of them bad
wives, others waited until s-me land
was cleard aod a small crop harvested before getting married. They
built tbeir own houses, made tbeir
own shingles, ox yokes, os bows, A
drags, axe handles, hoe handles,
wbipsawed tbe lumber for floors
and doors, made tbeir own roads to
tbe nearest market, sometimesa distance of fifty miles, wbicb could
only be negotiated iu home-made
jumpers attached to a yoke of oxen
io winter time. Tbey didn't get
government aid. Near tbe bome
farm is a rock cut about 200 feet
long aod i places 20 feet deep, and
a fill of about an eighth of a mile,
and it didn't cost the government
of Ontario one cent. And tbe road
is straight and turnpiked. Here, if
a fifty-pound rock rolls down on the
roadbed teamsters will drive round
it and complain to tbe foreman
about tbe obstruction. If a man bas
a prospect be wants the government
to build a trail to it. Thousands of
dollars bave been spent in Siocan
and Ainsworth districts building
roads to bluffs of country rock
owned by party heelers People wbo
kick about a few dollars of taxes
will spend hundreds of dollars dur
ing the year for fox-trotting and its
accessories. People in New Denver
and Silvertoo spend ten times as
mucb money in dancing as in taxes.
The people of British Columbia
doubtless are sincere in their "approaches to the Throne of Grace,"
but nnfortunately they expect the
provijcial government to 'answer
prayer." Seventy-five per cent of eX'
penditures of tbe provincial govern.
ment in the past thirty years has
been at tbe request of ratepayers;
the other 25 per oent hae gone to
cost of government, upkeep of meal
ticketers, etc.—New Denver Leaser.

F. B. Hetherington, of tbis city,
ex-service man, who wns with the
railway construction rnrpi. after being gassed on tbe firing line in
Fnnce In tbe late world war, is tbe
possessor of three coirs of great
aotiquity thnt were dug nut of the
soil in France.
One day while a party of the
soldiers was engaged in ploughing to
get dowo to solid bed rock fnr tbe
roadbed, the plough turned up quite
a cache of coins. They bad been
buried in a vase of ancient design,
but this wae now broken, and tbe
coins, covered with dirt and molded
green, bore no closer resemblance
to real money than the German
m-irk does. One of tbe men, known
as Casey Jones, picked up a handful
of the coins and shouted, "Here,
boys, are lots of poker chips fnr nur
game tonight." A companion playfully bit Cisey's hand, and the
coins skyrocketed through the sir.
In their ascent they clincked metal*
lically, and tbat wae tbe first time,
they were recognized as money. In
their descent Mi. Hetherington
caught two on tbe fly aod afterwards found ooe oo tbe ground.
One of the coins bears the head
of Hadrian, who succe ded Trajan
as emperor of tbe Roman empire on
August II, 117 A.D , and ruled
till 138. In 119 A.D., for the pur-
pose of becoming acquainted witb the
state of the provinces.be commenced
hie celebrated journey He visited
Gaul, Germany, aod Britain, where
he built the famous wall extending
from the Solway to tbe Tyne.
The other two coins are similar
to the above, but bear the heads of
Marcus Aurelius and Lucius Aurei
lius Verus. Marcus Aurelius An
tonious, who has often been styled
one of the noblest figures in history,
was born al Rome in 121 A.D.
Wben only seventeen years of age
he was adopted, together with L.
Celonius Commodus, by Antoninns
Pius, wbo bad sncceeded Hadrian,
and Faustina, tbe daughter of Pius,
was selected for bis wife. On bis
accession to the throne be volun*
tarily divided tbe government witb
bis adopted brother, Commodus,
called;smce bis adoption Lucius Aurelius Verus. After his decease,wbich
was felt to he a national calamity,
every Roman citizen, and many
others in distant portions of tbe em»
pire, procured an image or statue of
bim, wbioh more tban a hundred
years after was still found among
their household gods. He became
almost an object of worship, and
was believed to appear in dreams,
like the saints of subsequent Chris*
tian ages. The Meditations of Mar-
ous Aurelius were written in Greek,
solely for personal purposes; their
d >ubts, aspirations, perpendings of
the problems of life, rather ead tban
serene, though expressing the mind
of an ancient Roman philosopher,
come wondorfully near the heart
and conscience of modern Christians
Fourteen hundred years after they
were written down the Thoughts re-
emerged, a revelation of a person
•lity without parallel in Greek or
Roman literature.
In LondooJMr. Hetherington took
tbe coins to tbe British Museum,
wbere they were pronounced genuine ancient Roman coins aod properly labeled. Tbe person iu charge
of the institution, however, refused
to p'aos any fixed value on the
coins, laying tbat to the collector

This decision on a Sapiro cooperative contract should be of tbe
greatest ioteiest to all growers and

Sapiro Contract Held
to Be -Binding by an
Illinois Circuit Court
An interesting decision waa
banded down in tbe circuit court of
McHeory ounty, Illinois, last
week. Itis not only of importance
to those directly interested in the
case but to cooperative organizations
in all perishable lines, and especially
to those who are operating under
the Sapiro cootract,
In r'porting the case, tbe Liberty
(Indiana) Herald says:
Judge Edward D. Shureleff, ol
tbe circuit court of McHenr* county,
Illinois, has handed down a decision in tbe case of the Milk Pro
ducers' Marketing Company of
Chicago vs. AitburL Bell,in wbicb
the cooperative marketing contract
is completely upheld. Tbe court
grants tbe application of the Milk
Marketiug company against its
members to compel specified performance of cootract. Tbe decision
is regarded as an epochal one, since
it is the firat time a court ruling has
been had in Illinois on the Sapiro
ontract In the course of his de
cision, Judge Shure'eff said:
"In determining whether the con
tract in question is a valid cootract
and bow it may be enforced, tbat
is, whether the foregoing bill of
complaint states a case entitling
complaint to equity, two cardinal
and elementary principles should
be borne in mini at,.the outset
Firat, that wben sane men, intelligent and uninfluenced by fr<ud and
undue influence and there is no ac
cident or mistake and no law vio
lated, enter into solemn contracts
and contracts under seal, it is and
should br tbe policy of tbe law to
enforce such contracts and agreements.
"Second, that it is and has been
the public policy of the staie o
Illinois to foster and encourage co.
operation. This has been evidenced

Victoria, November 21—Kvery
member of thelegisUtnre,opposition,
independent and governorsi.t alike,
supported Premier Oliver's resolution asking fnr the appointment of
a customs officer at the pnrt of New
York. It is unusual fnr Mr. Bowser
to "Und behind tbe government
leader on anything, but so strong an
appeal did tbe premier make on
th» question of provincial rightp,
tbat tbere was no opposition to his
motion.
The appointment of a Canadian
customs officer at New York will
mean that goods manufactuied io
eastern Canada and Bent to British
Columbia via New York nnd the
Panama canal will not have n customs duty imposed upon tbeir reentry into this province The premier maintains that this regulation,
now in force, is jontrary to the
principles of tbe British North
America act, and in this contention
he is supported by all shades of political and business opinion.

Derogatoiy reports ciroulated
throughout tbe province regarding
the governments rec amation pro
ject al Sumas were quieted following
statements made in the legislature
Wednesday by Hon V.. D. Barrow,
mioieter of agriculture. For months
tbe rumor has been circulated tbat
tbe government was to be asked to
bear part of the expense nf reclaim
ing the lands in tbe Sumas lake
basin. Mr. Harrow stated that sucb
a course would not be followed, and
he challenged any experienced farmer to say that the total cost of Su-
oii; lands was not a very low one.
Tbid was proved, he coutended, by
tbe fact that the land owners would
not sell tbeir property even at a
price considerably higher than the
valution placed upon it.
A. D. Pattersoo, member for Delta, declared rbat after twenty-six
years of farming in the Delta he
was convinced that ths Sumas lands
were the best in the province.
Mr. Barrow expects the Sumas
reclamation scheme to result io tbe
production of as mucb farm produce
as is raised in the Cbiliwack district,
a sestion of tbe province with a
population of 10,000 and producing
1750,000 worth of dairy product?
alone, to say nothing of hay, grain,
roots vegetables and meat.

If you wai.t to have a (ritod, be

The first three weeks of any legislative sessiou generally dete mine
the strength or weakners of tbe ad-

corridors lt is now conceded tbat
the Oliver government is at least as
strong, if not stronger, than a year
ago Tbere appe rs no issue on the
horizon whicb can change tbis position during tbe present session, and
the opposition forces are centering
tbeir a tention chiefly upon making
campaign material of whatever
arises, preparing for the general
election, wbioh they anticipate is
not far off. Tbose close to the government make tbe guess lhat an
election will not be beld until next

September, 1924.
"I have never srt-n any
land so richly endowed by nature and I have travelled the
world over. It is so adequate
to the needs of life and so
easy of access to the millions
and millions of dollars in
minerals waiting to be developed," said A. Mackenzie
Meldrnm, A.M.,D.D., than
cellor of tht? Spokane university, in an address on thc resources of British Columbia
in Vancouver on Wednesday.
"Are you doing justice to
your country and your empire?' he asked. 'Too many
people living in British Columbia today are just as indifferent to the natural resources
of the province as v\ as tho red
man when the country was in
his possession. You will never
possess this country uutil it
possesses you.
"I wonld like to see you
keeping your wealth at home
instead of sending ii across
the line to us. We have
enough on the other side. We
don't need it.
"You have sent 32,000,000
pounds of yonr copper across

couutry in the refining of it.
Sometimes I wonder if you
are not going to back

border and let us milk them.
Take more pride in your
country."
Dr. Meldrum drew the
comparison of mining with
obtaining water from a pump.
"Go and do some 'priming.'
Put more money into your
mines and see if you don't
take it out," he said.
Hon. William Sloan, minister of

Notes, Notions and Notables
The British government, finding tho system
of doles for unemployed persons becoming
more and more burdensome*3aA demoralizing,
has formulated ways and means for getting
some work done in return for the help that
the unemployed classes need. Gratuity merely
subsidizes unemployment, increases idleness
and lowers the self-respect tad the morale of
the community. The government is uow urging railways to electrify, farmers to drain and
improve lin 1, towns ti extend their public-
service enterprises, mills and factories to repair and renew equipment. The government
will lend its credit to encourage all such work.
One of the uses to which the phonograph is
frequently adapted is the dseservation of the
voices and the perpetuation of the messages
of the world's great ones. Gladstone's voice
has been preserved on a record taken in 1890.
In "this same year a number of other people
had their voices taken, among them Florence
Nightingale, P. T. Barnum, Mrs. Browning
and Henry M. Stanley, the explorer of Africa.
Gladstone's record is part of a speech that
was to be conveyed as a message to a meeting
in New York. Florence Nightingale's voice
is very clear, and the message is touching:
"God bless my old comrades of Balaclava and
bring them safe to shore." Equally character
istic is P. T. Barnum: "I congratulate the
world through the medium of that wonderful
invention, the phonograph, that my voice, like
my show, will reach future generations and be
heard centuries after I have joined the great
and, as I believe, happy majority."
How Skagway, Alaska, received its name
has been explained in several different ways
by quaint Indian legends. Skagway is located
at the foot of a mountain and is subjected at
times to terrific north winds. An Indian story
tells of a beautiful Indian maiden who ap-
poared at this point, and who was adopted by
the tribe and given the name of Skugua. A
brave Indian youth fell in love with her. The
two quarre[ed, and Skugua Hed up the moun
tain, pursued by her lover, and eventually the
whole village. But she outdistanced her pur
suers, and at the summit disappeared in the
mountains and was never seen in the flesh
again. Later she appeared to her lover in a
dream, and told him if he would honor her
memory, and if thc Indians would let no
stranger come, she would watch over him and
them. They guarded the secret of the Pass for
many years, and when the bitter north wind
swept down through it they would exclaim:
"Ob, Skugua bave mercy upon us!" When
the avalanche took place on thoChilkoot
trail, that buried many', they said, "Skugua is
enraged!"
Tutankhamen's ring issaid to have been in
tbe museum of the N ;w Yock Historical society for the last sixty years. The presence of
tbis ancient ring i.s explained hy the habit of
the monarehs of old Egypt of bestowing rings
and other personal objects on lucky persons
who won their favor, Inscriptions on their
tombs frequently picture Pharaohs presenting
such trinkets to court and other attendants.
Each sovereign was well provided witb rings,
it seems The blue seal ring in the museum in
question was identified as King Tutankhamen's liy Dr. Caroline Williams, Egyptologist
of the Metropolitan museum and Bryn Mawr,
from a three year study of its inscription. It
is part of the collection of Dr. Henry Abbott,
an American physician, who practiced in
Cairo from lH.i-2 io 1852. His accumulation of
8000 ohjpcts was bought hy public spirited
citizens and presented to the museum.
AT THE CANADA CLUB
Canada, a publication printed in London
and devoted to Domiuion affairs, comments
as follows on Premier Mackenzie King's recent speech at a banquet in tbe Canada club,
London:
Mr. Mackenzie King, with good judgment,
selected the banquet given in his honor Jby the
old Canada club to make a great and important
speech. He took this most suitable opportuni
ty to fully and frankly explaining matters of
international politics involving a new procedure wbich has caused some apprehension both
in Canada and the mother country. It is the
first time in our memory of speeches by Canadian statesmen at Canada club dinners duriug the last 25 years that a speech of such
weighty imperial importance has been made,
and the Canadian premier is certainly to be
congratulaed both on the selection of his subjects and the fine qualities of his address. It
was unfortunate that the most important
speech at the Canada clnb was made at such
a late hour that no adequate report of the
speech appeared in the London press.
In regard to the special halibut fisheries
treaty, concluded directly between Ottawa
and Washington, Mr. Mackenzie showed that
the matter is one of purely domestic concern
to the citizens of the Pacific seaboard of the
two countries, and he took particular and ex
plicit care to emphasize his cordial adherence
to the policy that no individual action sbould
be taken by any part of the British empire on
matters of vital concern to other parts of the
empire "without the full knowledge and con
sent of all."
His speech was noteworthy also for the
broad and scholarly way in which he traced
the growth of Canada up from the beginnings
of its history as a crown colony to its present
national status.and he took the example of the
different provinces of the Dominion working
out their respective institutions as "emblematic of the league of nations which makes up
the British empire." From the racial and other
diversities he claimed that the leaders of Canada had "learnt how to bring out of these
differences a unity which emphasizes tlie
things which we have in common rather than
the things which divide," and from this, he
claimed, "we have learnt how to live and let
live and how to forget and forgive."
Mr. Mackenzie King, in his policy and in
his speeches, evidences a pride in aud love of
Canada equal to that evinced by any of his
predecessors, and in this speech he showed
the imaginotiod of a statesman rather than of
a politician in the value he attached to the
historical archives which have been so splendidly augmented by the gifts of Lord Durham
and Sir Leicester Harmsworth. The Durham
pap Mrs he regarded as so important that "a
nol inconsiderable part of their history would

probably have to be re-written from these
original records." Mr. Mackenzie King profoundly realizes the powerful ihfluence which
knowledge of and pride in Canada's early constitutional history can exert in raising the
Canadian people to their fullest natiqnal stature; he feels that their well justified belief in
the enormous possibilities of Canada's future
development will thus be best informed and
tempered.
The Canada club well justifies its existence
when it thus provides an occasion for public
utterance so authoritative and friendly before
an audience that cau appreciate their import.

"Wonderful indeed is the power of
the voice."—Cicero.
The power of the voice is the success
of the telephone. It was in-the endeavor
to transmit sound that the telephone was
invented, and the great factor of its de
velopment into an article of very common
use is that direct conversation may be
carried on.
Because it enables one's personality to
be sent is the reason that the telephone
promotes friendships and intimacy, and
brings about closer relations between
those in business. The pleasure of hearing the voice you know makes long distance the casual practice of every one.

at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact tbat there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
hae yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened io 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 objeotive of the Boaud. While tbe
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
provinoe, so that tbis 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. »

Following in Magellan's Footstep?
Higtier civilization bas not killed the Spirit ui Adventure, il .nay
even be, that people now-a-days are affected more by Wanderlust
than they ever were, and enhanced facilities for travel with a greater
degree of safety have stimulated, and not a little, the desire to see other
'han their immediate environs. In tlio old days when Columbus, Vespucci,
Balboa, De Soto and Drake, Carder and Champlain, and other bold
nariners sailed into the unknown and its perils on the seven Seas, much
courage was needed but today the World is every-man's oyster, nor does
■t have to be opened with a sword. With a little time ana comparatively
it tie money, one can see the places where history was made, far on countries
rd strange people,   and live the while, in   comfort.
Four hundred years ago, the first vessel to sail round the world lifted
anchor at Seville, and after three years of adventurous hardship, returned
to her Spanish port. Only thirty-one of the two hundred and seventy
who set out came back, and only the Vlttoria out of the original
\rmada of five sailing ships. The spirit of these seafarer! is Illustrated by.
che vow of Fernando Magellan their commander, as he set out from Tierra
lol Fuego across the Great South Sea, that he would push on if he had
to eat the leather of the riggin'. Magellan himself was killed in the Phillip-
pines, but as he had already reached that longitude on a previous
voyage eastward from Spain, lie is rightly credited with being the first to
c'"iimnttvigate the globe.
'ixty years after the Vittoria iet out irom Seville, Francis Drake
wiih a (leet of five sailing ships and !G4 men sailed from Plymouth in The
Golden Hind, and after a voyage round the world of almost three years,
returned with i rich loot of silver and gold, silk, pearls and precious stones, to
replenish the cotters of (Jueen Elizabeth The Golden Hind was the only
vessel nf the five to complete tha voyage and it became ttie favourite resort

tons, whereas the Empress of Canada, which sets out on a Round tht
World Cruise trom New York on January 30th, 1924, registers no less than
21,600 tons. Instead of three years of privation and hardship, the voyage
will occupy four months of luxurious omfort The route will be shorter, as
instead of rounding the Cape of Good Hope the route taken Is through the
Suet Canal, and instead of traversing the stormy Straits of Magellan,
the American continent is finally crossed on the excellent road-bed of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. But many of the points touched by Sir Francis
Drake aod Magellan will be vnited by the Empress of Canada, for Instance,
Batavia, Sourbaya and the traverse of the Celebes Sea to the Phillipines.
The circumnavigators on the Empress of Canada will return laden with
the rich experiences and mental treasures gathered from vision* of
eighteen different countries 'and contact with the costumes crafts and
civilizations of fifty different races.
Encouraged by successes of former years, the Canadian Pacific has
arrani-ed for four cruisers in addition to the Round the World voy-Joe
of the Empress of Canada. The Empress of Scotland will visit the cradle
of civilizStion in a trip Round the Mediterranean, sailing from New
York on January Uth. The superb Empress of Britain will make two
cruises Round the West Indies, leaving New York on January 22nd and
February 28rd, and, before setting] off round the world, the Empress of
Canada will travel Round America, sailing from Vancouver on January
4th. visiting the Pacific coast, California, and going via the Panam-
Canal and Cuba to New York. This vessel will be commanded by Cr
S. Robinson R. N. R. who figured so conspicuously in the reli?
which followed the recent Japanese disaster.

Ten Commandments
j For the Motorist
The ten commandments of good
driving are as follows:
1. Drive on lbe right side of tbe
road: it is just as good as tbe left.
2. Slow down when approaching
a crossroad; it is nearly aB dangerous as u railroad crossing.
3 Look out for children. You
can never tell what they will do,and
you are always in tbe wrong if you
hit one.
4 Try to help instead of hinder
the traffic officer; he is there for
your goor', and he's got a tough job.
5 Be sure that your "dimmers"
re,My dim; it's no joke driving into
a blinding  glare, as you probably
know.
6. Read and obey tbe warning
signs; tbey are not put up ae ornaments.
7. If you feel you've got to speed
-do it where it won't kill anybody
but yourself.
8. When miking minor repairs
stop where your car may beseen
from botb directions; otherwise you
may stop longer tban you aotici
pate.
9. Speeding around corners iB a
straight route to tbe hospital. Don't
race past a stopped street car. Some
day the jury will call it manslaughs
ter.
10. Use discretion. The fact tnat
you had lhe right of way won't
bring anybody back to life, least of
all yourself.
