Hon. W. H. Sutherland, minister

the trip from this city to Rossland
lastSaturday over tbe new transpro
vincial highway,and tbe members of
tbe party left Rossland for Nelson io
tbe evening. Owing to the copious
rains fbat have been falling almost
continuously during the past two
weeks at the summit, the road at
this point is in a very soft condition
and almost impassible, and for the
good of both the road and the trav
eling pnblic it has been decided to
close it to traffic for a week or
ten days. But notwithstanding the
present condition of the road, the
midister and Chief Engineer Philips
expressed satisfaction at tbe manner
in whicb it bad been constructed.

eral Foreman Donaldson returned

Victoria, June 6.—A striking in«
dication of the healthy condition of
industry in British Columbia was
tbe incorporation of $11,000,000
worth of new companies last week.
Hon. John Hart,minister of finance,
declares that in practically every
department of industrial deve-op
ment British Columbia is making
great strides. Labor is at a premium
in some industries, and tha government labor bureaus are filling posi"
tions by tbe hundred every week.
Premier Oliver will leave shortly
for another speaking tour of the
province, when he will address tbe
electorate upon the freight rateg
question. Next month he and G. G ,
McGeer, counsel for tbe government, will go to Ottawa, when the
entire freight r-tes matter will be
fully considered by Premier Mackenzie King and bis cabinet. Premier Oliver is optimistic over the
probable outcome and maintains
that within a comparatively short
time this province, as well as Alberta and Saskatchewan, will enjoy
as loW rates as the eastern provinces.
So far tbis season 300 forest fires
have been reported to the government, and wbile none has assumed
ilnrmiog prodortions, still Hon. T.
D. Pattullo, minister of lands, is
sending out fresb warnings all over
ihe province for citizens and officials
to he more careful. If the magnificent forests of British Columbia are
to be conserved the public must cooperate to the fullest extent.
Col. Donald McCugan, O.B.E.,
M.C., has heen appointed acting supervisor of enforcement by the
liquor control board, replacing Geo.
C. McLeod, lately suspended because of charges pending against him
for alleged extortion in Vancouver.
Premier  Oliver   has   announced
of $61,000 for agricultural education will be divided* as usual tbis
year, $20,000 going to the pepart»
ment of education and $20,500
each to tbe department of agriculture and the University of British
Columbia. Every effort will be
made to prevent overlapping.
Atiention is being called by the
government to the regulation-! governing the keeping of dogs. In sbeep
protection districts all dogs must be
licensed and anyone may kill a dog
wbich is found wor ying sbeep. Tbe
owner of tbe dog is also liable to a
fine of #50 upon summary conviction. Hon. T. D. Pattullo states
tbat be is determined to increase
tbe number of sheep in the province, so that it will not be uecessary
to import millions of dollars worth
mutton annually.
Continued rumors tbat a general
election is pending in British Col
umbia bave been emphatically denied by Premier O'iver aod bis ministers. Persons familiar witb tb e
political situation agree tbat witb
the provinee in such splendid condition generally it would be poor
policy to bold an election and,
furthermore, the government still
has two more years oi life. During
its seven years of office it bas buiit
up an enviable record, despite oppo
sition criticism. -■
Regulations. embodying
many changes of the epen
seasons for big game, fur-
bearing animals and game
birds of British Columbia for
the ensuing year, have been
promulgated by the game con
servation board, of which M.
B. Jackson, K.C, M.L.A.,
is chairman.
Suggestions for further
changes are invited by the
board before June 15, otherwise the regulations will remain unaltered.
The important changes to
the open season in the eastern
district (in which Grand Forks
riding is situated), which includes the province east of
the summit of the Cascade
mountains and south of the
C.N.R., areas follows:
Mountain goat, in the eastern district south of the main line of tbe
C.P.R.. September 15 to Decern
ber 15.
Bear, throughout the eastern district, September 15 to June 15.
Calgary, June 5.—"Crop
prospects are beyond anything
we have had since I have
been in this country," re
marked Charles Murphy,general manager of the western
lines of theCanadian Pacific,
who arrived in the city on
Tuesday from the west.
"Every one I have talked to
say they have never seen anything like it."
Asked if it was too early
yet to attempt to say what
the possible yield might be in
Alberta this year, Mr. Murphy said that the conditions
generally were so far in ad
vance of those of 1915, when
there was a big crop, that one
would be almost "scared" to
make an estimate.
"Some of the local grain
men say there will in all probability be a 100,000,000 bushel
crop of wheat," remarked the
Splitting Hairs
A bald-headed and a gray-
haired man, says G. B. Bnr-
gin in the Memoirs of a Clubman, once had a quarrel.
"My hair has at least stuck
to its post," the gray-haired
man said proudly.
"Mine preferred death to
dishonor," the bald-headed
man replied shortly.
He  might also, since   his
opponent   had  inadvertently
referred  to   his   head   as   a
"post,"   called   him a gray
haired blockhead.
Deer, bucks only, over   ooe year j newspaperman.  "Would that

cept white tail deer in North and

No game may be sold except

Omineca electoral districts from
October 1 to December 15; bear, in
the northern district, September 1
June 30, and in the eastern district,
September 15 to June 15.
Trapping.—No fur-bearing animals may be trapped south of the
main line of C.P.R., December 1 to
April 30, 1924.

prairie chicken and sharp tailed
grouse, in tbe northern district and

George and .Cariboo electoral districts in tbe eastern district, September 1 to November 15; in the

Well Matched
The nervous recruit about to take
his first lesson in horsemanship, says
the Los Angelesf Times, begged the
stable sergeant to bo kind enough to
pick out for him a nice, gontlo, peace-
loving horse.
"D'ja ever ride a horse befjrel"
growled the sergeant.
In Cat Language?
Little Alice was cuddled up iu a
big chair near the firoplaeo, reading
aloud te her kitten, which wus on her
lap. Mother, coming into the room,
smiled as she watched the two."What
on earth are you doing, Alice!" she
"Reading fairy stories to kitty,"
the little girl replied soberly.
"Whoever heard of such a thing?"
her mother exclaimed. "Why, don'l
you   know   your   kitty   can't under-
vative estimate?"
"On the basis of last season's crop I should think
there might be every reason
toexpactsuch a yield," said
Mr. Murphy.
Replying to another question the general manager said
that as the result of the present conditions, business generally would soon be on the
"jump." Undoubtedly the excellent prospects would in
themselves create business.
Rather Late
It is almost always a professor that
appears as the hero in stories of
absent mindeduess. Accordingly it
was a professor that^so we learn
from the London Sketch—came home
one day after a heavy storm in a very
bedraggied condition. His wife met
him at the door. As he greeted hor he
remaiked that ho had forgotten his
umbrella, and his wife, astonished
that he even remembered that he had
forgotten anything; as him when he
thought of it.
"Why, my dear," he said with a
smile of satisfaction,"when it stopped
raining, and  I went to shut it."
"Never," replied the rookie.

He Had Held His Own
Two middle aged gentlemen paused
on the bank of the pond to watch the
crowd of merry skaters circle round.
"I'd like to join them mighty well,",
said Mr. Rich to his companion. "I
haven't had a skate on my foot for
iuoio than twenty yoars, though, and
1 expect I'd look pretty silly."
"Well, I don't know," roplied Mr;
Little. "I haven't worn skates for
longer tnan that, but I bolieve I
could skate today just as well as I
could when 1 was twenty years old."
"Oh, come now," replied his friend.
"You are an active enough man, but
it's absurd to say that you could go
out there and skate as well us you
could when you were a boy."
' I think I could," persisted Mr.
Little mildly. "I couldn't skate at all
then, and I guess I could do quite as
well uow." THE   SUN.   QRAND   FORKS.   1. C.

The Atlantic and Greenland right whales have
been slaughtered almost to the point of extermination, the sperm whale industry has practically disappeared, and little remains now but
whaling in the Antarctic. That region is virtually new to whalemen, as their invasion
dates from 1905, but so destructive is modem
whaling that the total catch in that area has
exceeded ten thousand whales in a single
year. Efforts sbould be made to restrict the
slaughter, since the whale is a mammal that
is too large for a game preserve or zoo.

Notes, Notions and Notables
Many deaf persons seem to be able more or
less distinctly to hear sounds that reach them
by wireless, so that some who have always
been deaf how enjoy music for the first time.
Specialists are puzzled to explain why some
deaf people are receptive to radio waves and
others not, but it is said that about 80 per
cent ofthe deaf cau hear radio-borne sounds
*o some extent.
The French aviator who in January re -
mained aloft more than eight hours and a half
in an aeroplane with the motors stopped recently took the air in a glider propelled by a
seven-horsepower motor and dew and landed
with ;>ut the aid of-m, wind. The motorized
glider that be used can make more than a
hundred miles on a gallon of gasoline.
The appalling delay that under present
rules of procedure marks the course of justice
in many law courts in the United States is
well shown by conditions in New York state.
An investigating committee found that there
are 26,000 cases awaiting trial in the supreme
court of the state and that it taks almost two
and one half years for a case to come to trial.
That one party to a suit is sure of so long a
delay is often the reason why men prefer go -
ing to court rather than making a settlement.
A recent American machine of the helicop
ter class for horizontal flight is tbe invention
Emlle Berliner, of Washington, D.C. It resembles an aeroplane without wings. On each
side of the fuselage is a fourteen foot propeller that * revolves in a horizontal plane, and
near the tail is a three foot propeller. All
three are geared to a 110-horsepower motor.
The machine has never risen more than twelve
feet from the ground, but at that height it
made a number of flights.
In spite of the activity of tho American
geological survey there seems to be an unexplored valley in Siskiyou county, Califcunia,
if a contributor to the Scientific American is
not mistaken. The discoverer bases his assertion on a view of it that he got from a
mountain peak through a high powered binocular. Mountain walls tower above it on
every side. To get into it ropes and scaling
ladders will be necessary. The discoverer estimates the area of the valley to be about
three hundred acres.
St. Louis, Mo., being one of the centers of
the livestock industry, was naturally astonished when some ond suggested that a sheep,
a cow and a pig be placed in the municipal zoo
so that school children might know what the
animals look like. Later a census of sixth-
grade pupils disclosed that 40 per cent had
never seen a sheep, that 17 per cent had never
seen a pig, and that 12 per cent knew what a
cow looks like only from pictures.
A British publication describes an inven
tion by which flies, rain, s. ow and cold air
can be kept from entering an open doorway,
A motor fan is installed under a grill in front
of the door. The fan sucks the air downward
from the upper part of thedoorway and forces it
through a duct to a hood at the top of the en
trance, where it is discharged downward and
completes the cycle. A quarter horsepower
motor driving a sixtoen inch fan provides a
current of air that is unnoticed by persons
standing in the dooway, but that it is most effective in keeping out insects and cold air. A
shop in which the invention was tried reports
that the door's standing open all the time so
attracted people that trade increased by one

When in 1911 the United States made a
fifteen-year treaty with Great Britain, Japa n
and Russia to prohibit pelagic sealing in the
North PBcific the estimated number of fur
seals was 196,000. An estimate this year
places the present number at (JOO.oOO. Before
white men depleted the herds in the nineteenth century it numbered perhaps 5,000,000
If the seals continue to be protected and only
the surplus males are killed, as at present,
they may in time become as numerous as they
ever were.
tn ten ofthe chief cities of France the number of births fell from 100,811 in 1921 to 93,-
891 in 1922. The cities had together a population not far short of the greater city of New
York, but in New York there were 134,241
births in 1921. That gives some idea of the
difficulty France has in maintaining" its popu
lation. The birth rate has been low for many
years; the war by its slaughter of the young
men of marriageable age has still further depressed it.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Ctre, Traiiiim- and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such i r fortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, 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
years ago, the first 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 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 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 ^onerous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to tho Canadian Blind Babim Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
