Two Wounded in Battle
Between Prohibition
Agent and Alleged Booze
Legislative Library
•"Tall me what yoa Know la trus"
: .1 cen'lumss u well •• you."
Two men, were shot down
near Curlew.in Ferry county,
Washington, in a running gun
battle betwii.n the occupants
of a government automobile
and another car alleged to be
a border runner, early Wednesday morning.
George IJ. Murray, federal
prohibition officer of Seattle,
stepped into the road and signalled a passing automile to
stop. With him was Officer
Saddler. There were two oo
enpants of the car and thc
one sitting next to the driver
opened fire on the officers,
wounding Murray in the abdomen.
"Saddler returned the fire,
wounding one of the men,
but failed to stop the car,
which rushed west and left its
wounchd oceupant at the first
ranch. Pursuing the car to
the ranch, Officer Saddler
learned the wounded man's
name to be Foley Payne, but
beyond giving his name he
refused to talk or to divulge
the identity of the driver.
-The bullet entered Payne's
check, fractured a jaw bone
and fractured veitebrae at the
base of the skull. He was
takeu to the hospital at Republic and is under the care
of Dr. C. F. Hinton, who
says he will recover if infection does not set in Payne,
age 45, is unmarried and has
lived on a ranch near Danville
fifteen years.
Officer Murray is in the
Grand Forks hospital in this
city suffering from a flesh
wound in the abdomen, from
which no serious developments are expected. Mrs,
Murray arrived in the city
yesterday from Seattle.
H. S.   McClure, chief of
Spokane prohibition forces,
was called to   the chase on
Wednesday  and is working
with John rjjekett and Officer
Saddler in pursuing the fugitive automobile,

Says He Is Not Satisfied
With Enforcemnt of
Motor Vehicle Act By
Attorney General Manson in a
letter wbich he bas Bent to all tbe
chiefs of police of tbe rounicipslities
of tbe povince, says be is not eatis»
fied witb the manner in which tbe
motor vehicle act is bei g enforced.
"I am not satisfied with tbe enforcement of the motor vehicle regulations in tbe muicipaliiirs. Tbere
are still a very large number of cars
allowed to run by night with one
ligbt, or witb headlights of uneven
oandlepower. I can see no excuse
for this. A few prosecutions, well
advertised, would cause tbe public
to appreciate tbat tbey must observe
tbe regulations. But, even more
serious than the breach of the rule
as to lights, is the failure of the motor public tn use tbe prescribed
signals. Tbe use of tbe signals sbould
be insisted upon at all times by all
means, until it becomes a matter of
habit witb tbe driver. I quite appreciate that one may be driving in
tbe outlying parts or rPHidentisI
portion of a municipality and knowing there is no vehicle behind bim,
be tempted to omit tbe use of the
signals. While rhis is excusable in
one sense, it is nevertheless a violation of tbe aat,and certainly inr'uees
a careless habit. I tbink it would
be much better if our municipal
police aptborities would insist rigidly tbat tbe signals be used on all
proper occasions. Let prosecutions
take place day ofter day and week
after week and tbe prosecutions be
well advertised and in tbe course of
six months everyone as a sheer
matter of habit will be using the
signals. Tbe result will be tbat
oumerous accidents that are now
taking p'ace will be avoided. It is
cot satisfactory to me that the po.
ice sbouid be lax and say to theme
selves, 'Ob, well, no barm done.'
Tbe law is tbere and it is not for
the police to say tbat it shnll be
' "In a friendly and cooperative
spirit, I wish you would make it
clear to tbe beads ol|municipal police forces that it is expected that
they will enforce tbe regulations to
the letter. It will be for tbe courts
to exercise discretion as to tbe penalty to be imposed on tbe offender.
"Whit I have said with regard to
the two particular regulations may
be said with tbe same force witb regard to the statutory rule aB to driv
ing to the common danger. Prose
cutions for driving to tbe common
danger would eliminate probably 25
to 30 per cent of tbe serious accidents tbat happen It is needless to
prosecute after an accident has hap*
pened. The 'time to prosecute is
before it bas taken place.
"Pleace keep me advised as to tbe
progress made in connection with
tbe above.       A. M. MANSON."
Man IWith Part of Brain
Cut Away Has a Good
Chance of Recovering,
But May May Lose
With bss head ripped open Irom
the back of the skull to the rool of
the nose.when he attempted to raise
hir head wbile clearing edgings nnd
sawdust from under a circular saw
at a mill near Orient, Wash., Joe
Logsdon was rushed to the Gtand
Forks hospital in this cily the lirst
of the week.
Dr. Kingston dressed the wound
and the man bas since been under
his care. Part ofthe skull had heen
torn n way, several small bones in
the head bad been shattered und
hnd in lie removed, and small portions of brain mattsr from the upper
part of tbe bead bad also oozed out
of the wound. But in spite of the
critical condition of tbe man when
he wae brought to tbe hospital, at
bresent tbere seems to every indiuaj
tion that he will recover. Tbe
wound is healing nicely. While Dr.
Kingston has every hope of saving
tbe patient's life, he has some doubt
as lo whether the man well ever
again be 100 per cent Efficient
mentally. At present be seems to
be suffering fram loss of memory.
Logsdon in about 27 years of age
and unmarried, His father and a
brothei are also employed at the
mill where be accident occurred.

Publicity and Prosperity
One of the greatest factors in  the business
world is publicity, and  in any enterprising
business organization the appropriation  for
udvertising bulks largest in tbe overhead expenses. The mere spending of money for this
purpose does not mark any organization as
progressive or efficient; the value of the  publicity in relation to its cost is the thing wbich
counts,   Cooperation   is the first  principle.
Take bread as an example.   The baking trade
advertises extensively: "Buy bakers' bread";
the appeal has its effect, aud John Doe, who
advertises, his "Peanut Bread," secures a new
customer. The trade appeal induced the consumer to buy bakers' bread; John Doe's ad
vertisement told of a specific local bread; and
between the two both John Doe and the oak
ing trade in general benefited.   ".Save the sur
face and you save all," is another example of
th*8 thought tbat I wish to convey.
British Columbia is the largest business in
the province; it is the province, and the business of advertising it is of importance to all
residents, shareholders in the company. In
selling its goods, not to and for the sole benefit of individuals, but forthe profit of all, publicity must take a foremost part. Publicity of
the most effective kind, returning full value
for every cent expended is what is wanted;
and to ensure the greatest possible results co-
opnration is imperative. The lesson of "buy
bakers' biead" and "save the surface' should
be taken as the base of operations; all publicity forces should be marshalled, and a concentrated plan of campaign mapped out. It is
uot necessary for any units to lose their individuality, but coordination of effort would increase the effectivness of British Columbia's,
at present, unorganized publicity.
Competition often leads to error cf judgment wbich might be prevented. Brown
Brothers naturally try to sell their own shoe
polish and do all in their power to keep Black
& Company's goods out of the market. But if
in their efforts to force their own goods on a
reluctant customer, they turn him against
Black's polish, and he purchases a foreign ar
tide iustead, both firms lose. Foreign trade is
advanced at the cost of Canadian industry,
and the aggregation of such cases means that
less money is available for the purchase of
Black's and Brown's polishes by unemployed
In selling a country (not in the base s.nse),
local interest, naturally and rightly, is the first
consideration. The log-but community of Lone
Dog   Creek wants to boost the great advantages of its locality and natural resources, with
its sure and certain prospects of rapid expansion. The longed-for prospect is told of all the
good  things, and  possibly  some of the Oad;
but it does not fill his particular requirements
Hades Hollow, an opposition community, is
brought into the conversation,  but the portrayal of that indescribable "dump" promptly
decides the prospect that he has hit the wrong
trail. Do the idlers of Lone Dog < 'reek  who,
from tlieir "box" seats in  the general store,
watch the dust caused by the departing pros
pect on the trail to Back Again,  Washington,
U.S.A., realize they have made a bad stroke
of business?    When Lone Dog Creek failed to
please and  the prospect evinced interest in
Hades Hollow, he should have been given all
possible information and encouragement instead of discouragement.    Had lie located at
the latter place he might later have strolled
into tho former with his suitcase and eventujj
ally gained renown as Lone Dog Cieek's oldest inhabitant.   Failing that he would have
been a prospective customer for the  dreamed
of mail order house at the corner of Box and
Cox streets if the streets were cut through,
A settler lost to the province affects every
community, large and small. It means one less
over which to spread the burden of taxation
It means one consumer less; one less to de
velop the province, and—it delays the return
of prosperity. From the writer's point of view,
British Columbia comes first. But if a desirable
settler can not be induced to come here, get
bim into Canada if possible. He may eventual
ly follow the sun to.'British Columbia, and then
contiuue with the birds to Victoria. If he
never comes to Canadajhe can never reach this
province. Once in Canada he may wiggle, but
he must pay the price set by law and cont rib
ute part of what he now pays into the federal
treasury. In addition he will be a purchaser
of Canadian goods, some of which may be the
products of British Columbia.
Wby, what and how to advertise, and the
relationship between provincial, local, and
business organizations are subjects meriting
careful consideration. The publicity work of
the provincial bureau of information should
fit in with other publicity aud business organization. The business house that advertises
Okanagan apples or canned salmon helps the
province, and effective publicity by the prov
ince benefits the producers of apples and
salmon products. Hence the reason for cooperation which could not fail to increace efficiency all round and bring back a measure
of prosperity to British Columbia.

With shells screaming overhead and the
rattle* of machine guns in the air, an officer of
the Irish guards in the front line trenches
near Givenchy in 1915, noticed some pinks
growing in the garden of a shell-lattered cottage between the lines. That night he succeeded in digging up some of tbe plants with
an entrenching tool. Eventually they reached
a garden in Surrey, where they have bloomed
and increased. Now plants grown from tlnse
war refugees have been taken back to Givenchy by an officer of the Imperial War Graves
commission, and their white flowers are to be
seen in the Guards' cemetery, and by the
memorial of the West Lancashire territorials.

Perhaps-the most distinguished list this season, was carried by the Canadian
Pacific S.S. Empress of France on her last westward voyage. Among those
on board was Lord Beavcrbrook, who with several members of his family will
■pend some time in this country. He was also accompanied by T. Marson
Till, O.B.E., his secretary. Other prominent British passengers were Right
Hon. Sir Evelyn Cecil, O.B.E..P.C, M.P., and Col. Vaughan Morgan,
O.B.E..M.P., of London. E. W. Bok, the famous Philadelphia publisher of
Peace Prize fame also made the voyage.
Two pa-uenirers in whom much Interest centered were Prince and
Piincess Serge Obolensky whose recent marriage in Paris was one of the big
social events of the year.. The Princess "was formerly Miss Astor. The Hon.
Charles A. Dunning, premier of Saskatchewan, was also on the France.
Other prominent passengers included Mr. R. Bosch, the inventor of the
Beech Magneto, and Mrs. W. H. Taft, who was met at the dock by her
husband, W. H. Taft of tlie U.S. Supreme Court and ex-President of the
United  States.
E. W. Beatty, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, returned on
tbe Empress of France from a short visit to the Company's agencies in
England and Scandinavia. He was much impressed by the great possibilities
of a furtherance of trade between these countries and Canada.
' Asked whether he had seen the Canadian papers while abroad, and had
noted the storm of comment and protest that had followed upon the putting
into effect of the Crow's Nest Pass rates, Mr. Beatty replied that he had seen
• good deal of this, and it was nothing more than had been expected by
himself and other railway officers.
"At the time the proposed restoration of the Crow's Nest rates was
nnder discussion," he sard "it was made abundantly evident by the railroads
tbat they could not afford in tbe face of existing costs of operation for labor,
materials, equipment, etc., to extend the operation of "the Crow's'Nest rates
beyond the limits orginally fixed. It Was also fully explained that if restoration was forced upon the railways many inconsistencies would inevitably result, and some parts of the country would be unduly favored in comparison
with others."
, <"One of the grave difficulties of the day in railway operation in Canada
Is that theorists in railroad management are preaching a doctrine that gives
BO thought to the cost of operation in relation to the price thc railroad is
permitted to get for the service it gives as a common carrier. In most other
lines of business, cost to the consumer is based on the cost of productions
I cannot see why it should he different in the selling of freight or passenger
transportation. Somebody has got to pay wages and other operating costs,
and if the shipper is not willing to do so, I do not know who will, unless the
-country will pay it as a whole and I imagine that even the strongest sup-
Sorters of public ownership will agree that we have reached the limit in that
irection.  ,•
"It is axiomatic, too, that the continuous betterments and improve-'
ments to existing railway lines and the provision of capital for extensions
•nd new constructions generally depends directly upon the earning power
Of the companies, especially in the case of the Canadian Pacific, whose funds
must be secured in the money markets of the world and it would be in every
respect unwise fo borrow unless the general earnings of the company were,
satisfactory. One of the difficulties facing the railway companies in Canada
is that there is not a sufficient margin between revenues and outlays to permit
of surpluses for working capital and for the general purposes of the companies.
Until this margin is re-established extensive borrowings are highly undesirable. Nothing is more conducive to satisfactory commercial conditions
than a healthy transportation situation and this can only be accomplished
if a proper relation* exists between revenues and disbursements.
"'I should like to point Out," said Mr. Beatty, "that the Interstate Commerce Commission in the matter of rates and charges on gram and grain
products in the wcstern.United States very recently decided that the general
oasis of rates'*ttit*ii ih effect did not appear to be unreasonable and dismissed
the application fw reductions' Here it should be remembered that rates on
grain ftijd efaui products now in effect tn western Canada are not less than
15 pet ^t.'lwet,than those in the United States. The Interstate Com-
nterce CopjiSiS^idiHs comprised of highly qualified economists Who approach
the technical and allied questions of railway rates and costs in a thoroughly
scientific-manner. On tho other hand, the rate situation in Canada which has
been the subject of so much comment recently has been brought about by the;
restoration by act of Parliament bf a scale, of rates fixed nearly thirty years
ago without regard, at all to present day costs of the inevitable disruption of
the relationship which otherwise existed between various commodities and
various producing centres." ■■':■:■   • ,v-
. Mr. Beatty added that figures had'been filed with the Government showing
the approximate decreases fn'revenue to both the Canadian' National and,
theCanadian Pacific railways by the adoption of the Crow's Nest rates on ;
grain. These, he said, reflected a very serious loss of earning powers to this :
roads which would be made'still more serious by the recent restoration of tha
rates on the balance of the commodities enumerated In that aet.

THE story" of the Winnipeg
forts 'of the early fur-trading
days—Rouge and Gibraltar,
Douglas and Garry, is among the
most interesting that could be
found anywhere; When Verendrye
canie to tbe junction of the Red
end Assiniboine Rivers in 1738 he
established Fort Rouge. The
Northwest Company, sixty years
later, established Fort Gibraltaij,
and a few years, later Fort Douglas, named after Thomas Douglas, the fifth Earl of Selkirk, wu
constructed by the Hudson's Bay
Company. Many stories are told
of conflicts between the servants
of the Hudson's Bay and North-
West Companies, but tbe fends terminated with the amalgamation of
. the two companies in 1821, and the
first Fort Garry was erected as a
hiding pot* and   settee' depot.
This was. an elaborate structure
with stone walls, bastions and portholes.
On 1881 the building of Lower
Fort Garry, 19 miles down tha
river was commenced. This wbb fot
a time the residence of the Governor of Rupert's Land and the
'seat of government.. In 1886 Upper Fort Garry was begun at the
Junction of the two rivers and this
was the oentre of business, government, education and public affairs for more than 80 years, and
was the nucleus ot the present city
of Winnipeg.
The Fort was sold in 1882 and
the front gate, now- owned by tbe *
city and standin-r beside the new
Fort Garry, the hotel of the Canadian National Railways, is all that
remains of tills historic group of
Tha secret of making ends meet, is,
not infrequently, tbe difference
between Success and Failure. Adaptability to hard Circumstances in
order to study them with a view to
overcoming them, is a mere stepping-
stone to the foot of the born Inventor.
And, however we look at them,
Inventors ara "born" as well as
An Inventor has the ability to step
off, into Space as It were, to "take
the plunge'' to quote the man in the
street, which moro timid, or more
sophisticated folk, lack.
Most Inventions come out of two
'desires. A desire to save labor, and
a desire for better service. But an
even more fundamental stage lies
back of these. The period in some
man'a life, of Rock-bottom Necessity.
And so there has come down to us
from the Ancients, who were fond of
putting Truths into adages the pithy
statement that "Necessity is the
Mother of Invention."
The Age of Necessity, is therefore
the Age richest in Inventions. The
Inventions of a fundamental order,
those that saved mankind from extinction, rather than those thai-
spared his strength.
Regarded from this viewpoint what
people more rich In Invention than
the Indian? What people more
capable of "making ends meet"?
What people closer In spirit to the
Secrets of Nature? What people so
able to see possibilities, "a way out"
where no way apparently exists, as
these simple people of tho woods,
lakes, rivers, plains and mountains?
From these Fundamentalists, the
Pioneer had at once most to fear and
most to learn. It was this antithesis
which sharpened desire to take-up
the land ana hold It against the veritably embodied Spirit oi Circumvention. And lt was when the early
pioneers began to appreciate the
cleverness of the Indian and the
Indian began to appreciate tbe qualities of life aa Introduced by the new
people, that ono began to learn of
tho other and to prosper by exchange
of experiences aad by exchange of the
inventions for whieh oach stood.
Tha Indian and the pioneer have
this in common. Both were always
faco to face with Necessity. Danger
was dsai ant... everywhere. No
getting away from it. And to some
extent lt la interesting to be able to
decipher In most of the primitive
inventions of tha Indians, whether
■their habitat waa the shores about
the Groat Lakes, the Prairies from the
Lakes of iho Woods to the foothills
of tho Rockies, or the Rockies themselves or tho Httoral of the Pacific, a
certain Something, like an Atmosphere, a curious Fragrance, suggestive of Danger... a bixarre note...
Indicative of the presence of the
sinister form or forms whicb originally
called into existence that particular
I well recall the impressions experienced the first time I saw our Indian
guide of the French River, drink from
nis paddle. We had gone up the
Murdoch and portaged to Crooked
Lake. (A lake that only last year was
opened up by the Canadian Pacific
Bungalow Camp—above). No sooner
had we got into tbe canoe and gone a
few lengths than the guide ceased
stroking and careened the paddle
blade so that the clean, cool water
dripped as from a clear fountain into
his thirsty mouth and throat. No
weight had changed, the canoe still
ranged ahead from the last stroke,
the guide did not change his posture,
there was no sound, his eye still commanded the scene. The action was
so swift and silent that without
bidding my own eye ranged off to the
wooded bank, searching for the
imaginary foe whose mocassined feet
and wary intuition may have traced
the invasion by the summer camper
of this hitherto undeveloped haunt
of trout.
Thus swiftly did this simple act
recall the time when it was first
practiced. That time in the history
of Canada when the Red man's foes
were so numerous, when the urge of
hunting so keen that even when he
took a drink of water he must never
lose that'vigilance which kept him
always on guard.
In itself a mere straw, it holds a
psychological subtlety that in detail
shows us to what necessity and to
what finesse or inventiveness those
who live right down to the elemental
were driven by tbe combative elemental forces with which they
warred for existence.
We admire these things in ancient
and distantr, copies, but we are given
to overlooked. *" »*vi set little value
by them when'they occur at our very
doors as it were.
Canada is particularly rich in
"inventions" of this nature. They
are not here things of the Past but of
the living Present. I saw the Indian
drink from the paddle only last summer. You may see him this.
Adaptation or resourcefulness in
so simple acts are among these primitives, progressive after a fashion. The
next time our guide took a drink of
the cool lake water, he broke the deep
flower of a pitcher plant from a clump
that grew hy the bank and made a
drinking-cup of it Not limited to
one cup you see. And in the transition from the oar we can feel there
was a transition in poetic fancy. It
was a drink of relaxation,.. a sip
of nectar from the flower's heart.
And had he been of the Far East we
should have said "See the artistic
development of this Jap" but being
of the West and of the Wilds, it was
wholly unlooked for and evoked more
of surprise than anything else. It
called out on elemental feelings of
lurking danger or watchful focn, but
the pleasing cognisance that Art
Is Universal and that some of
the primitive-inventions follow the
sweeter paths of fancy, rather than
the ever-present Danger spelled of
the "oar-blade" cup.—By Victoria
12,500 persons were killed and 300,000 persons were injured in
automobile accidents in the United States during the
year 1921, and yet this appalling total seems
likely to be exceeded in 1922.
In spite of the most extensive educational campaign against railroad
highway crossing accidents ever carried on, figures just compiled by the
Insurance Department of thc Pennsylvania Railroad System show that
in June, July and August, of this
year, such casualties increased 30
per cent, as compared with last season.
The period covered embraces the
first three months of the National
Careful Crossing Campaign," In
which railroadi of the United States
have joined in efforts to make plain
the deplorable results of carelessness.
During the three months, on the
Pennsylvania System alone, there
were 107 crossing accidents, in which
71 persons were killed and 115 injured.
That thb year's large increase in
these casualties is chargeable almost
entirely to growth in the reckless and
inexperienced driving of automobiles,
Is shown by the fact that casualties
at highway crossings from all other
causes combiaed decreased.
There were 85 automobile accidents
at Pennsylvania Railroad crossings
m the three months in question. They
caused the death ef 56 persons, and
injury to 107 others, or aa average
of two personal casualties for each
accident Twelve of the accidents resulted in 39 deaths; faar caused the
death of 20 persons, or an average
of five for each car Involved.
In two of the accidents, entire families were wiped ont. That these lives
were sacrificed to pare recklessness
is particularly emphasized by the fact
that in both instances the drivers of
the ears lived dose to the scenes of
the accidents and were entirely familiar with the lay-cat of the railroad
tricks and roads over which they
were driving.
The responsibility of automobile
drivers for the safety of riders in
cars is no less than that of lo
comotive enginemen for the safety
of their train passengers. It is,
therefore, impressive to note that as
against the lives lost in only three
months by careless driving of motor
cars over tracks, there were no passengers killed in train accidents anywhere on the Pennsylvania Railroad
System during the entire year ended
May 31st, last. In that period no
less than 1,400,000 passenger trains
were operated and 152,000,000 passengers carried safely.
The chief reason for this striking
contrast Is that locomotive engine-
men are thoroughly trained in every
detail of their work, and are required
to demonstrate knowledge and ability
to operate trains ssfety before being
entrusted with their handling*
On the other hand, analysis of the
causes ef crossing accidents show*
that the vast majority of motor car
casualties at railroad highway crossings are attributable to a comparatively small percentage of inexperienced and irresponsible automobile
drivers who have neither the knowledge training or judgment required
for the safe operation of such machines. The result is often failure to
exercise even the most ordinary precautions necessary for the protection
of life when approaching or driving
over railroad tracks.
Moreover, reckless driving oi automobiles Is not confined to highway
crossings. This is shown by thc
dally reports in the newspapers of
accidents caused by driving automobiles Into telegraph poles, or slou>
walls and by skidding, sideswinjng.
turning over and colliding. From this
running chronicle of death and in
iury, the conclusion would seem warranted that what Is needed at thc
present time is not merely a Careful
Crossing Campaign to concentrate
