Little satisfaction bas been secured by the oppsitioo members in
probing the financial dealings of tbe
liquor control board before tbe public accounts committee. Despite the

unable to uneartb anything but
trivial mistakes before the committee

Banker Explains
Movement of Gold
Toronto, Nov. 21.—With reference to tbe large shipment of gold
from the United States to Canada,
Sir John Aird, vice-president and
general manager of the Canadian
Bank of Commerce, today said it
wbb only a temporary loan, tbe exi
planation of which was that Can*
dian funds were at premium. He
said it was cheaper foi the time being to send gold to Canada than to
Canadian exchanges in  New York.
Sir John intimated tbat it wae
probable that the gold movement
would be in the other direction before long, indicating tbat Canada
and the United States, at least, have
once again returned to normal.
As to Canadian money being
above par in tbe United States, Sir
John said it wrs probably due to the
sale of Canadian securities in tbe
United Slates and were the sale to
decrease this country might once
more return to the adverse exchange
minister of finance, British   Colum
bia is in a better financial condition
than any other province io Canada,
and this because of the careful sys«
tern   of borrowing wbicb bas been
followed during the past  few years.
With  Canadian   money now at a
premium, the minister declared tbat
tbe province would be saved seven
or eight million dollars before the
maturity  of  loans already plffiBB.
This was tbe most fitting reply   to
the Bowser prediction tbat the provincial treasury would  be virtually
bankrupt through tbe borrowings of
the finance minister, said  Hon. Mr.
A noticeable feature gf tbe budget
address was the announcement that
despite  the  heavy calls upon the
government there will be no increase
in taxation. Further, said the minister,   expenditures   in   practically
every department will be lower for
tbe next fiscal year tban  formerly,
and last year there was a reduction
of   11,162,757   from  the estimated
total.   Estimated   revenue   for  the
coming year is placed at $18,769,596
Last year's estimated revenue was
(18,882,391, but the actual  revenue
was $1,871,795 higher.
"The credit of tbe province is better than at <ny time since confederation," said Hon. Mr. Hart, "and
thiB is demonstrated   by  tbe ready
sale of  our   bonds, the prices we
have received, and the number of
financial   houses   bidding for   the
issues  The province is fortunate in
owning  great    natural    resources
within its bounds—timber, mines,
agricultural  lands  and    fisheries.
The'return of normal conditions and
the tnfiux of people we may  expect
io the next few yeara, combined
with tbe sound, sane policy of development of our natural resources,
must assure us of a bright and
prosperous future."
While nothing definite has been
announced by the Oliver government regarding its proposed plans
for colonization, it is known that a
definite, comprehensive policy is
being worked out apd will probably
be announced in the legislature
within two weeks. After two visits
to the old country, where he communicated witb the imperial authorities, Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands, has proposals wbicb
be maintains will mean the securing
of tbousans of the best type of British settlers for tbe vacant lands of
this province, Answering repeated
criticisms from labor and opposition members, regarding the provision of employment far those out
of work, rather tban the encouragement of newcomers, the government
lias pointed out that only agricul
turists are being sought. There are
several million acres of the best
lands on the continent in tbe valleys
of tbe central interior and the  fruit     J. B. DeLong,   high school   in

. Georges Clemenceau, "Tiger" of
France, will not visit Canada.
During a morning newspaper interview in New York on Monday,
be was told tbat be would be exceedingly welcome in the Dominion
and was asked whether he could
make tbe ttip.
The "Tiger" repiied that his program had been so Jcarefully worked

Avoid Apple Congestion
By Doling System
Fear of-congesting the markets of
the United Kingdom with apples by
shipping a large quantity through
Vancouver on one steamer, is said
by prominent apple shippers to be
the reason for small shipments moving to Europe by that port tbis
Nearly 1,000,000 boxes of apples
have been booked by United Statea
Pacilic ports to be sold in tbe United
Kingdom, while shipments from
Vancouver up to the present have
been very light, coming under 20,-
000 boxes.
It is claimed that if a ship carrying 400,000 boxes of apples arrives
in London it will probably pressed
the market. On tbe otber band, tbe
shippers state tbat by timing their
shipments across Canada and via
tbe Atlantic, tbey can reach tbe
British markets a week to ten days
ahead of the shipments from Vancouver via the all-water route, and
in thie way catch tbe market wben
the supplies are running low and,
therefore, can command a good
To induce shipment by Vancouver
the Royal Mail Steam Packet company reduced the water rate to 10
cents a box and tbe Canadian Pacific railway lowered tbe freight
from tbe Okanagan to tbe coast 5
cents a hundred and also took off
tbe unloading charge-. A box of
apples can be landed in Liverpool
for f 1.15 via the water route, and
for very little more by rail and
water across Canada.
Victoria, November 20.—Io a
long memorial presented to the
provincial executive and private
members bere this morning, the
Vancouver Hotelmen's association,
representing fifty hotels, made a plea
to be allowed tbe right to sell beer.
Tbe document went into details
showing the money invested in these
hotels and of how it had proved
impossible to declare a dividend in
recent years.
No action bas been decided upon
by the government on the liquor
question although several caucuses
have been held to debate the all-
absorbing topic.
Freight traffic on the North Fork
branch of lhe Kettle Valley line is
at present confined to tbe hauling
of merchandise.
First Gar Over New
Transprovincial Road
The Rossland Miner of the 16th
inst. says: The first auto to make
the journey over tbe new link in tbe
transprovincial highway from this
city to Cascade arrived here at 4:30
yesterday afternoon.
The run from Cascade was made
in a comparatively sdort space of
time, considering tbe car was tbe
first vehicle to make the trip over
the new highway.
The auto, containing Engineer
Gwyer, George Tierney and Edward
Deschamps, left Casoade at 11 a.m.,
arriving bere as above stated at 4:30.
Little difficulty was experienced
in making the journey, At the Velvet mine the deepest snow was encountered, being about six inches
Engineer Gwyer is said to be
highly pleased with tbe work of tbe
contracting firm of Tierney A Co.
& DeschampB, whicb firm set November 15 as the time for completing tbe work, and will not exceed
that date very many days.
It is believed tbe official opening
of the 'ink will take place about
June 15,1923.
Tbe car in which the journey was
made was a McLaughlin, and it was
photographed today in front of the
offices of Messrs. Tierney.
The work on the connecting link
in this important highway is practically completed,and it will be only
a few days now until the scene of
operations wbere some of tbe dif
ficult rock cuts are being mai
be deserted.
Free Distribution
of Seed Grain
A free distribution of superior
sorts of grain will be made during
tbe coming winter to Canadian
farmers by the cereal division of the
experimental farms branch, Ottawa.
The samples will consist of spring
wheat, about five pounds; wbite
oats, about four pounds; barley,
about five pounds; field peas, not
garden peas, about five pounds;
field beans, abont two pounds; flax
for seed and flax for fibre about two
Tbe cereal division of the experimental farms branch bag im
proved many of the old varieties of
grain and introducad many new
varieties. Tbe best of them have
been multiplied and propagated under direct supervision of responsible
officers on the experimental farms
botb east and west. Tbis seed will
form the bulk stock from whicb the
various samples will be taken. Tbe
seed iB therefore tbe purest and best
that is obtainable. Of some of the
more recent introductions tbere is
only a limited supply, so it would
be advisable to apply as soon as
possible for tbese.
Among tbe grains for distribution
will be found the Liberty bplless
oat, an oat that is excellent for human use, and to a limited extent
for young livestock. Among the
wheats, the most outstanding for
distribution will be the Ruby wheat,
a wheat that ripens from eight to
ten days earlier tban Marquis and
is suitable for districts were Mar
quia is not early enougb This year
among the barleys will be found
Charlottetown No. 80. This is a
two-rowed barley that has a tendency to drop its a*ns. The supply
of this variety is very limited. We
hope also to distribute Himalayan
barley, a hulless variety which is a
good yielder and suitable for young
livestock. There will be only one
variety of peas for distribution,
namely, Mackay Ostawa 25, which
is a main crop pea and not suited1
districts where early frosts occur.
The object of tbe distribution is
twofold: first, that tbe farmer may
get a small sample of good seed to
start his seed plot; second, that the
cereal division may find out how
their improved grains will behave
under various conditions of soil and
climate. Therefore it is necessary
that all the information asked for on
tbe application form should be fully
answered. This also holds true with
the report forms whicb each man is
asked to fill outi
Applications must be made on a
printed form wbich will be supplied
by the cereal division, experimental
farm. No postage is required on
letters so addressed. No application
forms will be supplied after February 15, 1923. Farmers are advised
to send at once for forms in order
not to be discouraged, ae in some
cases the stock is limited. The allotment of samples will be made in
order of application. Only one
sample will be sent to a farm.
Lots of Subjects of Pres-
ent-Day Ills Broached
But the Cure for Them
Is Withheld
A remarkably large audience
gathered in ibe Empress theater on
Wedn»sday evening to listen to
the lecture of Dr. Hindley, who
spoke under Ihe auspices of the
local retail merchauts' association,
aud was advertised to give a solution to the weighty problems that
confront the merchant, the firmer
nnd the 'workingman.
Mr. Uindley is an ejsy, fluent
speaker, and those who rime to tbe
meeting with the expectation of
being amused, went home reason*
ably well pleasedjwiib the resuitobtained; but those who were in search
of a remedy for tbeir economic ills
went away no wiser than they were
when they came.
The speaker touched on a great
many subjects iu a superficial way,
and recounted all the evils that are
gnawing at the vitals of society today, but whet) the time arrived for
him to tell the audience the cuie
for these evils he seemed to hesitate and lose interest in that particular theme and switch to a uew
subject. Tbis manner of changing
topics was maintained throughout
tbe evening.
The speaker made a splendid
beginning. "A divided community
cau not prosper nr make material
progress," he said. That is sound
logic. But the formula for uniting
a divided community was missing.

' A propaganda is said to have started among
the prohibitionists of this province to oppose
the selling of liquor by the government stores
in smaller containers than are at present used.
Of course a whisky-soak is perfectly satified
with the present size of the package, while
a moderationist might be contented with half
that quantity. But what size bottle do the

Radio broadcasting is expected begin shortly in England. In order to avoid confusion
the government, profiting by the American
experience,has laid down definite requirements
for the broadcasting stations. One provision
of the British plan is that a part of the profits
of instrument makers and a percentage of the
licensing fees from receiving stations shall go
towards paying the cost of broadcasting.

One way to get inexpensive dwellings is to
follow the plan that the cooperative societies
in Austria have adopted. A group of people
in similar circumstances organize a society,
hire an architect and a few master mechanics

Is there any namable limit to the speed of
the aeroplane? We used to open our eyes at
reports of eighty or ninety miles per hour.
Then one hundred and twenty miles became
commonplace, and one hundrsd and fifty miles
was the exploit of the day. Several months
ago a Frenchman "broke" two hundred miles.
Then an American touched two hundred aod

General Mitchell of the United States air service did two hundred and twenty-four. It is
even asserted that Lieutenant Maughan has
made two hundred and forty "unofficially."

In England girls with bobbed hair are now

that is cut away at either side to make room
for a curled ostrich feather, which gives the

Archaeologists have found undor the vol
anic ash of San Cuicuilco Hill near Mexico
f Uty the ruins ef aa old pyramid, The struc
lure is built of coarse blocks of volcanic rock;
it i.s about one hundred feet high, and it was
buried by more than one eruption from the
neighboring cone of Ajusco. Dr. Cummings
of the Arizona S}ate Museum, who was one
of the discovers, says that the pyramid shows
that men capable of building masonry on a
on a huge scale inhabited this continent at
least two or three thousand years ago, and
perhaps even earlier, for Lhe last great lava
flow from Ajusco occurred more than twenty
centuries ago. The tools and pottery found in
the vicinity show that the builders were in a
very primitive stage of civilization; they were
"stone-age" men.

I stole a melon. I went into an alley to devour
it. But—I had no sooner set my teeth into it

I came to a quick resolution. Firmly, I walked
up to that cart, placed the stolen melon where
I got it from, and took a ripe one."

Winnipeg, Man.—Since the commencement of the crop year up to
Oct. 1st, 86,695,074 bushels of wheat
have been marketed by the Cana-
dian Pacific Railway western linem,
it was announced at the local office
recently. During the same period
the company handled 12,22l),772
bushels of coarse grain and for tho
Jame period last year 56,164,115
oushels of wheat were marketed as
veil as 6,940,6X8 bushels of coarse
.Tain. Total cars loaded to date
imount to 62,773 as against last
year figures of 38,257.
There is every indication that the
•olume of travel  to Europe during
lovember and December will this
.ear be heavy.   It i.s already appar-
nt that the number of those who
, itend spending Christmas in the
old Country will be unusually large,
i ad the Canadian Pacific Railway is
Making    special   arrangements     to
ecommodate the traffic.    A special
iirough train will be run from Win-
i ipeg  to  tke  steamer  "Montcalm",
riling from St. John, N.B., on De-
• :mber    12,    and    through    tourist
• eepers will run from Edmonton,
' algary, Saskatoon, Ri-gina and oth-
i ' western points to catch other C.
'. K.  sailings from  St. John,  thus
; iving a through service from these
'ties to the Old Country.
Bow Island.—The Canadian Pa-
Kfic Railway Company has a gang
' f men at work here on the improve-
i 'ents to their pumping plant and
'./hen completed there will be quite
i n improvement to thc volume of
'.•ater that can be pumped from the
. iver. The work includes the putting in of a new boiler and pump at
:ie river, so that they can use natural   gas  as  well  as  j;:;3oline,  and
hus be sure of fuel ; I all times for
pumping, and dues away with water
rouble and having engines run for
water. It also increases the service
liere and practically does away with
mpply at other points.
H. R. Miles, division engineer, hae
charge of the work and has a crew
of eighteen men working with him
under Foreman W. J. Oliver. It will
take at least three weeks for the
work to be completed. When finished they will be able to fill the
present water tank, which holds
16,000 barrels, in three hours. When
it is considered that there will be wt
least twelve to sixteen trains daily
taking water here it means there
must be a supply of it on hand at
all times. This new installation wiJl
meet  the  requirements.
Winnipeg.—Western Canada's export business in fruit, potatoes and
other lines of produce has developed
te such proportions that exporters
are now arranging to establish big
collecting warehouses in Winnipeg
a»d other cities of the prairie provinces. The Canadian Pacific has
granted special storage in transit
privileges at Winnipeg, Regina,
Moose Jaw, Lethbridge arid Calgary
en carload shipments of apples in
lysei originating in British Columbia.
Under Hie new arrangement the
shipper hae the privilege of holding this produce in Winnipeg er any
otf the other western cities named
fer a period of six months and then
on rcshipment he gets the advantage oi immt through raj**
Vancouver. — With every hotol
ajong the Canadian Pacific Railway
tteed to capacity, and with the
coastwise steamship offices reporting a greater volume of travel than
•ver before ia their history, Western
Canada is enjoying a tourist traffis
this year that haa nevor been
•quailed in past seasons. t
During the past few days it haa
been necessary for tha majority of
the hotel motor buses to make four
and five trips to tho hotels from tha
steamers in order to aooommodato
the incoming pwsMgwaa, and tha
trains both from the east and from
local points have bean similarly
well filled with visitors.
"Tourist traffic over C.P.E. western lines is far greater than it was
in 1921," said General Passenger
Agent H. W. Brodie on his return
from an inspection trip which canned him as far as Banff. "Travel
is now at its full height and many
Americans are seeing Canada. Trains
both east and westbound are well
Ailed, and Western Canada is enjoying a great summer season."
All the mountain resorts along
the main lino of tlio CP.R. an
being well patroniied, and the Arrow
Lakes and Okanagan scenic pointa
are also the Mecca for hundreds erf
tourists from the American side.
Boats bound for Alaskan ports
are being well filled every trip,
while the ferry steamers between
Vancouver Island and Seattle and
Vanoouver ara loaded to capacity
•very  trip.
The opening of the Banff-Lake
Louise road through the mountains
has done much to bring a large volume of auto tourist traffic to Canada this year, state O. P. R. officials,
snd when ths Banff-Windermere
highway is opened this fall H is ex.
pected that there will be another
large volume of tourist traffic diverted through British Columbia.
"'Many cars are coming from
Spokane and Seattle up through
Lethbridge into Banff and Lake
Louise," says Col. Clarence Lougheed
of Calgary, "and when the highway right through the mountains
is completed both Alberta and Brio,
ish Columbia will get a large volume
of auto traffic annually. Hundreds
of cars have come through Alberta
this year, and they would continue
on and return to the United States
by way of Vancouver if the roads
were open.'.. Alberta autoists are also
anxiously awaiting the completion of
th- roads through and it will undoubtedly moan n big thing ever/
year to British Columbia," s
Banff. — Although the offieU!
opening of the Banff Windermere
Automobile Road will not taltaaprace
till Dominion Day nest year, the
last stretch has just been laid, and
the chief engineer traversed the
whole 104 miles, from Banff to Lake
Windermere, for the first tlms ht a
motor car. Ths time taken was
seven hours. The new road provides
an important link oa the Ail-Canadian motor trail through ths Rookies,
and is expected to bring thousands
of motorists to Banff from ths United States, aa lt connects with the
great Columbia Highway through
Spokane to Portland. This season
the Canadian Pacific trains to and
from the Rockies were heavily laden
with tourists. The opening of the
Banff-Windermere road will if possible, make resorts ia the Canadian
Pacific Rockies more popular than
ever, and the number of tourist
visitors will be, largely JJMWaoed,
