"Absolutely NoTangleEx-
oept in the Gobwebbed
Minds of Those Accustomed to Shooting Off
Their Mouths About
Victoria, Feb. 20— Emphatic denial is given by Premier Oliver to
statements of tbe oppositiou and
third party that tbere is a bad
tangle in tbe arrangements for tbe
coming court of revision.
"Tbere is absolutely no tangle
except in tbe cobwebbed minds of
those accustomed to shooting off
their mouths about nothing," he
declares "Tbere would be no mis.
understanding if people would read
the statutes Intelligently; but some
oan not, or wben they do read, tbey
oan not,understand wbat they have
read. If anyone says tbere is a
tangle let him take legal proceedings and find out."
Tbe suggestion that tbe government intends to dissolve the legis'
lature before tbe revision of tbe
voters'lists commences on April 7
is ridiculous and put down by members of tbe oabioet as "another attempt of the opposition to embarrass the goverument and mislead
the public."
Premier  Oliver   points out tbat
the voters'   lists are being revised
aooording to tbe law   of tbe  prov
iuceand the task wili be carried out
with fairness to all.

this summer through the sale of
building lots at Point Grey. The
government owns 3000 acres of land
in tbal locality, some of it considered the hest building property
available today in Greater Vancou.
ver. About 100 acres will be disposed of this vear, the area being
laid out according to the most
modern town planning rules. It is
expected tbat by the time the entire acreage bas been disposed of
the total cost of tbe institution will
probably bave been taken care of.
Delivery Gar
Goes Into the
North Fork
Harry Clifton, driver of McKinnon & Hayerty's delivery cat, had
an accident this (Saturday) morning in which he narrowly escaped
death by drowning. In turning out
for a team near Mr. Sprintball's
residence on Riverside avenue, one
of tbe axles of tbe car broke and it
turned over oo its side a <l went
over a six foot embankment and
into about six feet of water in tbe
North Fork. The car landed on top
of Mr. Clifton, and bad not the oc
cupants of tbe team hastily extii
cated bim from bis perilous position be would surely have drowned
As it was, he received wounds and
bruises tbat will keep in bed for a
few days.
Disoussing narcotic and liquor
problems before the Victoria Local
Council of Women, Attorney General Manson warned mothers against
the insidious campaign of the drug
vendor, who found many victims
among tbe girls and boys who in
dulge in too much dancing u -
"It might surprise you to find
out how many boys and girls are
addicts," he asserted. "In Van-
cjuver last year a notorious trafficker who had been arranging co-
oaine parties for boys and girls,
with the assistance of Vancouver
men, was convicted. Addicts are
more to be pitied tban punished.
But as to those who traffic in the
drug, I would add the lash to the
sentence of conviction."
Dealing with the liquor question,
Mr. Manson said tbat tbis wbb the
most difficult problem of ad minis
tration. The people had declared
for government control, and any
government, no matter wbat its
party, was bound to carry out tbe
the will of the electorate. He declared tbat the task of handling tbe
liquor question was enough to drive
anyone insane and be appealed for
the oooperation of atl in this undertaking.
The new game conservation board
regulations, passed at tbe last session of tbe legislature, wbioh were
expected to do much towards tbe
conservation of fur in this province,
are now in effect, and repoits from
game wardens show that the changes
have resulted in much improved
The board points out that British
Columbia is the chief source of fur
on the continent. Tbere are 100,000
square miles of territory where the
sound of the rifle is rarely heard
and where tbe fur-bearers require
only reasonable^protection to en
sure a goad "orop" for many years
to come. Every effort is being put
forth to conserve tbis valuable in'
dustry, wbioh prodnces several mil
lions of dollars of revenue annually.
"Lafayette, we are here!"
(The United States is again sending reminders to her debtors reminding tbem that she is waiting for a settlement.)—From L'Hunfanite,
MacDonald should terminate bis
work wltb tbe Associated Growers
on December 31 last, but as it was
felt to be altogether in the interests
of v*tbe Associated tbat bis services
should be retained at least to the
end of tbe present selling season,he
was asked by tbe Growers' executive to continue to serve, and for
tunately was able to accept tbe pro
posal, although at considerable
personal idconvenience. Mr. Mac-
Donald's services have been of
great value to tbe association, and
his work in tbe prairie provinces in
extending sales, and above all in
creating and fostering a spirit of
confidence and good will towards
tbe Associated on tbe part of the
jobbing trade, iB beyond praise.

Recent Amendments
to the Game Act
A recent amendment to the game
act, wbicb does not seem ti be gen
erally known, includes in the fur
bearing classification wolverine and
lynx, two animals which up to the
present time have not been classed
undci tbis head. Tbe result is tbat
these animals came under tbe close
season regulations, and it is unlawful to kill or trap them. A number
of tbese animals bave recently been
brought in, and to the disappointment of those who bad captured
tbem, tbey were confiscated. As tbe
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 whicb are killed must
have lbe heads left on tbe carcass
when being brought in.

on Monday at Coast
Miss Ida VV. Gaw, daughter of
Mrs. Jessie Gaw and the late Robert
Gaw, of this city, was married in
Vancouver on Monday afternoon to
Roscoe T. Pedvin, who is an accountant witb the Granby Consolidated Mining company at Anyox.
Tbe ceremony waB performed by

in readiness for the opening of tbe
Pacific Great Eastern enquiry tomorrow afternoon.
The prelimiuary sitting wiil be
for tbe purpose of discussing matters of procedure and to enable
counsel for all tbose interested to
put in tbeir requests tor subpoenas.
There is likely to be no little
sparring for advantage and fireworks are likely to develop almost
at once Rumor hae it tbat the
Provincial party representatives are
looking for a fight in the hope that
even if they fail to prove their
charge they will create some public
excitement about the issues.
The government and fts followers
are in a jubilant mood, ready to
iake on all comers in any kind of
catch-as catch can tussle that may
be started.
Tbe commissioner is expected to
inform counsel of the manner in
wbicb be proposes to bave tbe investigation proceed, whether the
Provincial darty as plaintiffs shall
call their witnesses first, or whether
the government counsel, who presumably represent tbe lieutenant
governor, sball have right of way,
leaving tbe door open to the Provincial party to supplement their
effort as ihey see fit.
Even in tbis kind   of   discussion
there iB ample room for legal   spar
ring  and   tbe   expectation of tbe
public is that it will  be war to the
knife from the first minute.
Representatives of all parties interested in tbe proceedings are
flocking to Victoria to take in the
biggest political show staged in the
province for a great many years,
and whether valuablr information
to the public is elicited or not there
is bound to be plenty of entertainment.
London, Feb. 16.—The circular
letter of F. C. Wade, agent general
for British Columbia, to all members of the house of lords and com
noons, is attracting mucb attention.
He deals particularly with the case
of Okanagan apples and canned
salmon from the coast.
Seventy five percent of the apples grown in British Columbia
come from tbe Okanagan valley,
against,wbich trade theTTnited States
market is practically closed, Mr.
Wade states. Hi asks if the British
parliament will complete the destruction of the Okanagan valley
apple trade by closing the British
market against it.
On the subject of canned salmon,
the circular states tbat tbe trade in
the beat Canadian salmon iB being
almost driven from tbe Britiso
market by a low grade Siberian
salmon which frequently is masqueraded under esrablisbed Cana<
dian labels. Mr. W. de asks for a
proper marking of all tinned salmon and presses for the granting
of a preference thereon as tbe only
means of retaining one of Canada's
most important industries."France,"
he says, "gives a preference on Canadian talmon; who not Great
The destruction of the Cauadian
salmon industry, he points out,
would mean a serious loss to the
Welsh tioplate trade aod to the
manufacture of flat nets, wbicb in
in normal times are made almost
exclusively in Great Britain.
Mr. Wade's memorandnm also re
produces large numbers of letters
from leading salmon importers in
Great Brftain, ranking tbe British
Columbia as superior to any otber
Pacific coast salmon.
These importers state tbat tne
British Columbia method of packs*
ing the salmon by hand is superior
to packing by machinery, as is done
in the United States.

Notes, Notions and Notables
There is more ]sickness in winter than in
any other season, The chiel' cause is the quantity and quality of sunlight that reaches us.
When sunlight comes slantingly through miles
of foggy, dusty air most of the violet rays and
those beyond the violet are filtered out, and
those are the rays that kill bacteria. "Let the
blessed sunshine in," is a watchword that is
particularly appropriate for winter.
On the River Jordan, close by the pool that
is pointed out as the one in which John   baptized   Jesus,  a  power  plant  has been completed. Already theJordau isturningdynamos

the outlet of Lake  Tiberias will control the
flow of water in the river all the year round.
In a course of one hundred  and  forty  miles
the Jordan falls more than five thousand feet,

and Italian lines.
Daimonds of the finest water are pure
white, giving off flashing lights of red, green
and blue. Any thinge of yellow in a diamond
has always greatly reduced its value. Re
cently, however,a process has been discovered
whereby the color of the yellow diamond may
be changed aud its value enhanced. Treatment of the stone consist in placing the diamond over a small hole in a block of lead.
Rays from a tube containing radium are
directed into this hole, and slowly a change
takes place. The discolored stone loses its
yellow hue, and by degrees takes on a magnificent flashing green color, not unlike the
emerald. The length of time required to
complete the change varies.. Sometimes the
transformation is comparatively quick, often
it takes a year or more. The result is a jewel
of surpassing beauty.
A Swiss inventor announces that he has
made a machine that will typewrite directly

about the abiiity of the contrivance to improve on the spelling and punctuation of the
person who dictates to it, there may still be a
place for the accomplished secretary.
The good St.- David is honored by the
Welsh as their patron saint, He lived in the
sixth century and is said to have been the son
of a prince of Cardiganshire; Wales He is
credited Mith the working of many miracles,
especially among poor folks. It was said that
when the saint, who was a giai t in stature,
first went into the fields to preach to his followers, the ground on which he stood began
to rise until it became high enough to form
his pulpit. On St. David's day (March 1st)
the Welsh wore sprigs of leek—a plant of the
onion variety with broad bluish green leaves
and yellow flower clusters—in their hats. In
explanation of the custom, the story goes,
that in a battle of the Welsh against their old
enemies the Saxons, in which the Welsh were
victorious, S\ David ordered all Welshmen to
go into battle wearing their native leek, both
to distinguish them from their enemies and to
bring them good luck.
Recent research by some French professor s
into the ways of women a hundred thousand
years ago, have given an unexpected jolt to
preconceived(ideas. Now the professors declare that woman, in the days of our cave-
dwelling ancestors, was regarded as the more
important sex. Men held a secondary position, tolerated for the sake of the food and
skins provided. Women ruled, and were the
inventors of the earliest arts and sciences. It
was tho women's ingenuity w'lich devised
snares for auimals aud made plans for storing
food againstjtimes of scarcity. Women taught
ways of making clothing from skins of animals,
and by the efforts of their brains improved the
lot of all the human race. Woman's cunning
and wit was the outcome of her lack of physical strength which obliged her to resort to
strategy rather than force. On the whole, the
prehistoric woman apparently held the same
position and ruled man in the same manner
that she does today, according to these gentlemen, who may however have a different
opinion for us tomorrow.

Lovers of the fragrant weed will be aston -
ished to hear that tobacco is supposed by
Mohammedans to have originated with a venomous serpent. The legend says that a Mohammedan prophet once found a serpent,
lethargic and almost dead with cold. He
pressed it to his bosom and his own natural
heat restored the serpent to life. The serpent
stated that, according to the rules governing
the relations existing between snakes and
and man, he would be obliged to bite the
prophet. The prophet protested that if the
serpent were to do so it would show deepest
ingratitude. The serpent replied that he was
very sorry, but that he had sworn by
Allah to bite him. The prophet admitted that
an oath made to Allah must bo kept at all
costs. So he presented his hand to the snake,
who pierced it with his fangs. The wise and
merciful prophet sucked the poison from his
wound and spat it upon the ground. Immediately there sprang up in the place the tobacco
plant, which holds in it the poison of the
snake and the soothing mercy of the prophet.

It is remarkable for how many generations
and with what frequency charactirtic family
features will crop up. It is especially noticeable were there is a peculiarity of nose, lips
or profile. A striking example of this persistency is seen in the facial type ofthe Haps
burg dynasty, distinguished by a projecting
jaw, prominent nose, thick lower lip and
bulging eyes. The heavy jaw first appeared
with Rudolph I, the first monarch of the
Hapsburg line, who came to the throne in
1239. Hisdescenants, Ernest I, Leopold III,
Ferdinand II, and Maxmilian, showed the
same marked characteristic. When .Maxmilian
married Marie of Burgundy the other peculiarities were acquired. Comparisons made by

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was reeently 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«

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
provinoe, 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.

Winnipeg, February 21—Prospec-
tive settlers from mnny countries
directed by tbe overseas organization of tbe Cunadian National rail
ways, will begin to reach Winnipeg
about Marcb 15, and ni .ny of these
newcomers will be anxious to secure
work on farms in order that they
may learn by actual experience tbe
Canadian methods of carrying on
farm work. In order to assist these
settlers and also the farmers who
require their services during the
spring summer ind fall, the Can-
adian National railways bave placed
application forms in the hands of
allage'ite on C.N.R. western lines,
which farmers can complete and

Graduate Nurse Finds
"The Perfect Remedy"
Graduate of National
Temperance Hospital,
Tells of Remarkable
Cases Where TANLAC
Has Proved, Effective
"From my long experience as a
professional nurse, I do cot hesitate
to aay I consider TANLAC the most
efficient and natural stomach medin
oine and tonic to be had. It is un
doubtedly Nature's most perfect
remedy," is the far reaching statement given out for public, ition recently by Mrs. I. A.; Bordt n,Seattle,
Wash , a graduate of tbe National
Temperance Hospital, of Chicago.
"I have used TANLAC often in
treatment of my patients and my
ezperfence has heen that for keeping the stomach, liver, kidneys and
bowels functioning properly, and
for toning ap the system in general,
it baa no equal.
"About ii year ago I had a lady
patieut who could not keep a thing
oo her stomach fifteen minute!-, not
even water I prevailed on ber to
try TANLAC, and after the sixth
bottle -. he could eat absolutely anything sbe wanted without the
slightest bad after effects.
"I bad another patient wbo
simply could not eat. I got him
Btarted on TANLAC, and by the
time h-' finisned three bottles he was
eating ravenously and had regained
sufficient strength to return to work.
"Tb-ee two instances are typical
of my experience with TANLAC.
My coi.fidence in TANLAC is unlimited."
of tbe railway in Winnipeg will then
place tbe prospective worker in
touch with the prospective employer and thus get the settler away
to a good start.
It should not be overlooked that
tbe immigrant who iB most likely to
be of use to the western farmer is tbe
man wbo comes early in tbe spring,
prepared for a year's work, ruther
than tbe mau whucoines for a sbort
time, tempted by high wages wbicb
are paid during rush period, and it
is strongly recommended tbat, as
far as possible, help sbould be engaged by tbe year.
No charge is made for this ser
viceaiidtbu company assumes no
obligation ixcett lo biing tbe
worker and his prospective employer together for their mutual benefit.
Farmers who anticipate needing
belp duriug the coming year are
urged to make application early and
thus take steps to assist tbe vigorous immigraiion campaign being
carried out by the Canadian Na,
tional railways.
The aggressive immigration and
colonization plan being followed by
thc Canadian National railwayswill
result in,the bringing to Canada of
many thousands of good citizens
during the uext few muutbs. To
ensure tbese newcomers work is the
most practical way ot ensuring
tbeir success. By the method out
lined tbe employer of farm labor
can supply this cooperation and at
the same time secure belp for him-
■self forthe coming year.
