Victoria, Deo. 21. — With the
passing into history of the third session of tbe liftei'iith legislature ol
British Columbia, one feature is
outstanding—the unsbakeable po
sition of tbe Oliver government.
One hundred bills were presented
and passed during tbe seven' weeks
the house was in session, and while
few important situotions arose, still
the government was never in danger
When the administrator, Chief Justice Macdonald, prorogued tbe legislature last Saturday the Liberals
seemed more firmly established in
the saddle than ever.
Several important amendments to
social statutts were passed, chief
among tbem being those alluding
the Workmen's Compensation Act.
In future injured workmen will receive 62J per cent of their regular
wages While off duty through acci-
de -.is. Burial alUwaDce has been
increased from sib to $100.
Amendments to the Forest Act
promise to provide additional safeguards against lire. Smoking will be
closely watched and citizens will be
obliged to report (ires whenever
Of ereat interest to the fruit districts is the legislation providing
funds for lighting the codling moth.
The government will assess tbose
benefited and provido for a compre
hensive campaign against this pest.
A homo for incurable will be established by the government, the
cost to be about $70,000 Munici
palilies will be asked to contribute
11.25 for every patient sent to tbe
Contrary to the predictions of the
pessimist, no increase in taxation
has been provided for, wbile there
is an actual decrease in the estimated expenditures for the next
fiscal year.
The hottest light of the session
was wagod over the beer question,
But the liquor laws in regard to the
favorite beverage are unchanged.
The regular. $5 permit has been
abolished- It will coBt (2 in future.
The single purchase and foreign
permits have beeu done away with,
while beer and wine permits will
cost ouly $1 instead of $2.
One drastic amendment to the
Government Liquor Act provides a
jail sentence for those found guilty
ot Belling beer. Several members
made a vain, attempt to have tbis
changed tp a substantial fine. Another amendment is expected to
wipe out the bonded warehouses;
licenses will cost $10,000 in future.
Now that the session of tbe legis.-
lature is over, the government will
turn its attention to the affairs of
the Pacific Great Eastern railway
once more. Premier Oliver, ex-
minister of railways, will take the
new minister, Hon. J, D. MacLean,
over the liue from Squauoish to
Quesnel, wben a thorough inspection will be made and tbe two will
consider what steps shall he followed
during the coming year in operating
the line. It is known that Hon.
Mr. MacLean favors a comprehensive colonization policy, and to that
end 'will have a complete survey
made   of   the agricultural,  mining

Announcement Made
by Minister of Public-
Works on Floor of Legislature
Medicine Hat, Alberta—An expenditure of abolit $i,(i,000 is represented by the extension to the
Canadian Paeific Railway roundhouse and the construction of the
Company's mechanical coaling plant,
and that sum is about, equally divined between these two improvements. In both instances the work

Minister of Public Works
Makes Gut of 5 PerCent
in Provincial Maintenance Estimates-'Grand
Forks' Quota $23,500
The following resolution was
adopted by the fruit growers' convention at Kelowna last week:
Whereas, the fruit growers of
British Columbia during the past
two years have been unable to obtain for their products sufficient to
cover the cost of production; und
Whereas, if this situation is allowed to contiuue for unotber year,
many growers will bo forced out of
business and those remaining will
bu unable tu give the lore to their
orchards that is necessary if the
present high quality of British Columbia fruit is to be maintained;
Whereas, it is the belief of this
convention lhat the chief cause of
tbe present deplorable condition is
to be found in the present competitive system of marketing; and
Whereas, it any action is to be
taken towards eneuriug reasonable
prices to the producer for his next
crop, it is imperative that quick action be taken immediately;
Be it resolved by this convention
of fruit growers of British Columbia
here assembled:
1. That immediate steps be taken
for the marketing of tho fruit and
vegetable crops of 1923 by tbe ortj
ganizaliou of a central board of control composed ol botb growers and
2. That each board ol control
shall consist of three growers and
two shippers, or such number us
may at some future date be determined upon, provided always that
the majority of such board shall bc
composed of growers;

Victoria, Dee. lli. —The provincial government plans to commence
tbe construction of tbe irausprovincial highway from Hope cast early
next year, it was announced in the
legislature on Wodnesday by Hon.
W, D. Sutherland, minister of public works, when the estimates were
brought up in the house lor the
public works department. It was
explained by Hon. Dr. Sutherland
thai survey gangs under Engineer
VV. K. (iwyer have been at work on
the western end ofthe Hope-Prinoss
ton route.
Hon. Mr. Sutherland recently
made a personal survey of the
routes, accompanied by Engineer
Gwyer. Thoy travelled over the
Cleveland survey for twenty-live to
thirty miles ou through the A'lison
pass at an altitude of 1100 feel, tlicn
striking the Dewdney trail and following it lotu Hope.
Ab to the probable route of the
highway, it is assumed from Dr.
Sutherland's Blulouu ut that fur
twenty live or thirty miles it will
follow the Dnwdiiey trail, take the
Allison pass and lliuu strike tho
Cleveland survey twenty'live miles
west of Princeton, Tbis vould involve the utilization of part of the
King route and ouu-third of each of
the other routes aod tbe lower altitude of Allison pass.
It was pointed out by W. A. McKenzie, member for Similkameen,
thut for the lirst twenty tiveto thirty
miles east of Hope is a good grade
well built and so well preserved that
a molar car can go over purl of it

St. Thomas, Ontario—Work has
been commenced on the construction
of an extension to the present C.P.R.
yards iast of the city, in tht form
of an 800-foot repair track at an expenditure of approximately $15,000.
The grading work whicb is being
done by Irwin and -Son of thi? city,

new tracks to be used in case of an
emergency. The new track will hold
at least forty ears. Four t ams and
about twenty men are engaged in
rushing this work to completion.

United Mine Workers are sotting aside two
million dollars with which to finance the coal

They have already informed President Harding's coal commission that upon no other

It will astonish most people to learn that
the supreme court of California has decided
that the Bible can not be used in the public
schools of that state. The test was made on
the King James translation, which the court
finds to bea "sectarian" book, the Bible of the
Protestant churches, but uot accepted by Ro
man Catholics, Jews or agnostics. There appears to be no doubt that iu its attempt to
adapt public school education to the religious
scruples of various creeds, the constitution of
California, like that of many other states, has
succeeded in keeping out of the schools not
only religious instruction but what Americans
i a general regard as the word of God itself.

so many families had not become indifferent

It could pass a law that every red-headed man
should be hanged, and tbe courts of law should
have to carry out its bidding, and hang every
man whose hair was proved to be red. It could
pass a law that overy man who now had no
property should receive the property of those
who had some, who heuceforth would havo
none. It could destroy a whole country by the
use of the army and navy, which are under its
control. It could eject great portions of the
British empire and hand them over to other
territories, or to govern themselves.—C. F. G.
Masterman, in "How England is Governed."
The Carnegie Institution and other organ-
iz itions expect soon to resume the work of
excavating and research in Yucatan. The rein tins of the Maya civilization, which Hour
is ied in Yucatan a tbousaud years ago, have
as yet been little explored. The cities and
temples were so numerous that remains are to
be seen nearly everywhere. So far as is now
k iown, the civilization of the Mayas is a
native grewth and had no connection eitner
w ith Europe or with Asia before the time of
C ilumbus. Their greatest achievements were
ni iking a calendar based on astronomical
st idy, building their temples and inventing a
complicated system of hieroglyphic Mriting.

] War for the Americans seems fairly remote
at 'this moment. Recently the commanding
officer of the district of Washington put on a
little demonstration of an infantry attack. It
was a good show witnessed by probably 20,
000 people. At its close the general was wait
ed on by two ladies who asked where the next
one would be held. They said they belonged
to a woman's peace organization, and he was
making war look so attractive that they wished
put on a a rival meeting next time, to counter
act its effect.
In July, a solemn demonstration with flaunting banners, music and speeches was held in
Washington, in the course of which the presi
dent was urged to set aside a "\o more way

The dove of peace was to take on immortality.
In September the war drums began to throb
in the Near East. There was a rush of troops
and warships to the crossroads of the world,
the city of the Golden Horn. Britain was at
the breach. The League of Nations scuttled
for the cyclone cellar. The cynical old woijld
diplomats smiled and began to pin on their
decorations preparatory 30 taking seats at the
council table.
Mustapha Kemal, who is said to be a de
cent young man, trying to do for his country
what j you would for yours in a similar
situation, was represented to be sharpening
his scimitar on the tomb of Mahomet to slit
the throat of the infidel. Once more had been
raised the crescent against the cr^ss.
Thus the headliners got in their deadly
work, and the White House was overwhelmed
with demands that the United States inter,
ven in the Near Eastern situation, and if necessary join England in war against Turkey.
Resolutions were passed in all parts of the
States insisting that the Turk must be checked
at all cost.
Most of this insistence came from organizations apparently willing to invoke war without
giving the diplomats even a chance 10 settle
th ngs. The class which would disband the
army and scuttle the navy a year ago now
wanted a host and an armada to move against
the Turk.
Those who condemned tho niggardly appro
priations in 1921 now demanded war to a finish
regardless of cost. The supportejs of the
league in 1919 wore now howling for blood.
In the short space of thirty days the dove of
peace had grown spurs.

Philadelphia.—Th. Canadian Pa-
•Mc Railway has opened ita new
offices her. m the Cross Building at
th. corner of Locust and 15th
Streets. Growth of the company's
business and the gradual movement
•f th. city's most important business institutions in this direction
were responsible for this move into
larger quarters in th. heart of the
hotel, theatre and business district.
The offices which hav. been handsomely fitted, accommodate both
freight aad passenger official, on
Canadian Pacific rail and ocean
lines, as well as representatives of
th. Minneapolis, St. Paul and Sault
and th. Duluth, South Shor. and
Atlantic Railways.
London, Ont.—This y.ar th. Canadian Pacific Railway ha* arranged
to hold weekly Urst aid classes at
London throughout th. *ntir* year
•nd the instruction will b. furnished
by th. employees themselves, many
who have become vary proficient in
flrst aid werk.
By this m.aas those smploy.es
who hav. had previous instruction
ean drop int. th. class*, from time
to time and refresh th.ms.lves on
the instruction, whils th. naw employees, especially thos. in train
and engine service, whose duties
may require them to be absent from
the classes one week, will hav. th.
opportunity of taking th. instruction later on as th* classes will continue throughout the year. E. T.
Wright, C. P. R. storekeeper at London, is chairman in charge of the
committee, which i. looking after th.

London division.
Montreal—Judge Choquet'g warning issued som. time ago threatening to fine th. parents of boys causing damages in any part of the city
was put int. effect when h. condemned fifteen mothers of arrested
lads to pay 18.72 each for th. acts
ef their offspring.
For som. tint, there has been
daily reports from the C. P. R. of
destruction to cars and fixtures by
youngsters who run wild through
the yards and use the cars for playing hide and seek. Ths most seri-
*us accusations were laid* against
beyn who were caught throwing
stone* at passing trains, endangering the lives of travellers. Judge
Choquet gave a warning that he
would hold the parents responsible
fo. the acts of vandalism by children. When he had fifteen cases
prepared for court he carried out
his warning by making the parents
pay the costs of the damages incurred.
Montreal.—From Finland to Duluth, Minn., via Montreal, travelling
alone and tagged like a piece of
baggage, is the record of Veikko
Tuominen, aged eight, who stepped
•ff the Canadian Pacific train in
Duluth the other day, wearing a
smile of confidence and trust in the
strange world about him. He was
on his way to his uncle, Frank
Salini, at Virginia, Minn.
The lad  recently became an »r-
fihan, and his uncle wrote to friends
n Helsingfors tbat he would tak.
care of the boy. Salini was unable
to go to Finland for him, so little
Veikko was tagged and placed in
charge of the Canadian Pacific. H.
came from Helsingfors to England,
where he was placed on board the
E.S. Melita, and carefully looked
after until hfs arrival at Montreal.

'Up to the lime I was seventeen

most miserable and unhappy girl that
ever lived. Honestly, 1 Mas a sight.
I wns the most ungainly looking
creature yon ever saw, I was thin
ami scrawny straight up and down.
My height was five feet nine inches
and I weighed exactly nim ty-oneand
three quarter pounds. No matter
whatkfudol i lothesl put on I looked
like a fright I was clumsy and
awkward. I u^ixl tostand before the

I had a good lose, good eyes ami a
good moutb but my eh il:s were

mcta friend of mineoncday, KlsieW.
and I hardly knew her. While she
had never been as thin as I was, a
year or more ago she ran me a close
second, but when I met her she had
taken on flesh and had develop! d
into a fine handsome girl with one of
the prettiest figures I had ever se,. ll
I asked her what had caused the big
change. She said Carnol, She told
ine she had been taking it regularly
for the last three months aiid that
from the first week of taking it she
had begun lo put on flesh. I was so
encouraged by what she said that I
couldn't get to the druggist fast
enough. I bought a bottle and since
then I have been taking it regularly.
!t has made the greatest change in
uie you ever saw. I now weigh 1(15
pounds and nil my friends tell me
what a wonderful figure I Imve and 1

Carnol is sold by your druggist,
and if you can conscientiously say,
after ; ou have tried it, that it hasn't
done you any good, return the empty
bottle to him and he will refund your

The Objects of tin's Institution, for which Incorporation was rocontly obtained, are: "To p.'jvide 1, Homo and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scion ific Care, Training nnd Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
eveu a fow of the nany of iu,:h unfortunates, who, for tbe lack of sucb ser«
vice, perish even -'ear; and to return these little, ones to their parents, at
ohooj ago with 1  n'lnal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a lurge and greatly needed Cbild Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
al tbo Governme olBuos in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at tbe presan time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion, Nothing
haB yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the (ir home was opened in New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all loing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson org mixed "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims tb it it is the only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Car ida. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is tho present objective of the Boa.id. VVhile tho
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in tho Baby Blind from evory
province, so that ihis APPEAL for funds will bo Dominion wide, and an
early and generouB response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
