from Hon. T. D. Pattullo,
minister of lands, in which
the minister conveys the geod
news:
"You may advise the irrigation district that $45,000

First Six Miles of
Road Out of Rossland to Be Surfaced
It has been decided by the
proviheial government to surface the first six miles of the
transprovincial highway out
of Rossland, says the Miner,
and it is expected, so it is announced, that the work will
be completed wnder the supervision ofthe local road fore^
man very soon.
This improvement has been
urged for some time, and it
will not only put the road in
better shape for traffic but will
tend to protect it against
damage from washouts, etc.,
in future.

The fruit branch ofthe Dominion
department of agriculture strongly
urges strawberry growers to give
more attention to the picking, pack*
ing and shipping of their fruit. It
pays, the last circnlar says, to put
enough berries in eacb box to assure
that wben they arrive on tbe market tbey will not have settled lower
tban the top of tbe box. It adds:
"The imports into Canada of United
States strawberries tbis year bave

clean, well colored and ln well-filled

She was a native of England. Sbe

mouy floral offerings were made.
Prairie Crop Prospects
Reports from prairie points indicate tbat crop prospects are good.
Very little hail damage has been reported so far. Moisture is reported
plentiful in the majority of districts.
The grasshopper pest is only report"
ed from a few points. There is an
optimistic feeling prevailing among
tbe farmers. In some districts warm
weather has caused tbe grain to
head out early with short straw.
Forage crops are uniformly good in
each province. Live stock is generally doing well with excellent pas****
ture. From present indications an
early harvest is predicted in Maui
toba. In the country north of I'M
monton crops aro looking well, but
can do witb a little more moisture
This condition is general throughout
tbe provinces.

New Cortcentratin^
Plant to Constructed
at Aayox at Once
A Prince Rupert dispatch
says a new concentrating*
plant is to be constructed at
Anyox immediately. The
plant will be located on what
is known 5s Smelter hill. It
will be in close proximity to
the small plant now in operation there.
A dispatch from Victoria
says:
After two months' personal
experience of the Cedar creek
section, wherein lhe reported
discovery of gold in paying
quantities occasioned the recent excitement which attracted many hundreds of
gold-seekers to the district,
ex-Aid. W. M. Russell Hunter is back again in Victoria.
His opinion of the section
from the standpoint of a gold
producing one is by no means
favorable, and he strongly
advises anyone contemplating
going in to think twice. It was
true, Mr. Hunter stated, that
gold has been found in one
place—nn the claim of Piatt
and Lyons—and some has
been found on another claim,
but beyond what has already
been discovered there has not
been a trace found over the
whole of the area, twenty
niles square, which has been
staked by enthusiastic but, so
far, unlucky individuals.
"To my mind the whole
thing has been enormously
exaggerated, and some of the
statements made by parties
who mostly were imbued with
the desire of unloading'* upon
the 'sucker,' and whose stater
nients were given wide publicity, were nothing short of
criminal." declared Mr. Hun
ter.

Northwest Apple
Crop to Be Lighter
Tho total apple crop of tbe Pacific
Northwest is estimated at 31,802,000
boxes, or 8,327,000 boxes less tban
last year and 2,722,000 boxes more
tban the crop two years ago.
The commercial apple crop esti«
mate, soon to be announced by the
government, will iu doubt show the
same ratio. The decrease iu tbe west
is more than oflsel by the heavy
increase in production in the east
urn barreled apple sections. These
conditions were to be expected, as
last year the boxed apple districts
of the northwest hud i heavy crop,
while the eastern yield was ligbt.
Fruit crop conditions throughout
the west ure unto tbe standard of
the season and approximately 158,-
000 cars of fruit from fruit belts of
live western states will be shipped

ATTHE LAKE
J. Nordberg, of Rossland,
Expert Swimmer, Loses
Life in Christina Lake
on Dominion Day
J. A. Nordberg, of Rossland, was drowned in Christina
lake at the Dominion day
celebration under rather unusual circumstances.
He and a friend had been across
the lake in a rowboat with eome
parties tbey knew at tbe lake, snd
as tbey neared English Point oo their
return trip Nordberg aud his friend
jumped overboard to swim ashore.
When Nordberg's partner and tbe
parties in tbe boat reached tbe sbore
Nordberg was missed, and no traoe
of him could be found. Tbe men
rowed back to where Nordberg bad
jumped overboard, but as tbe lake
is very deep at this point, and tbere
being no signs of the missing man,
nothing could be done.
Nordberg formerly lived at the
lake, and is reputed to bave been
one of tbe best swimmers in tne
district. It is said tbat he frequently
used to swim across the lake and
back. As be had on a bathing suit
wben he dove off the boat, be was
not handicapped by too many
clothes, and it is supposed tbat he
encountered a cold current of water
at depth and caught the cramps.
Nordberg was employed on lhe
Casc.de end of the Cascade Rossland link of tbe transprovincial
highway, and his wife and tbrre
children came over from Rossland
on Saturday to celebrate Dominion
day with bim at the lake.
The body had not been recovered
up to the time tbe last report wss
received from tbe lake.

Washington, July 3.—Two
principal storm periods are expected
for July for the weeks centering on
July 3 and July 26. The severe
storms of the week centering on July

Rockies' crests. Rain shortage ex-
peeled in all the West ludia islands
and northern South America.
Northwest Division--Higb tem»
pei-atures near 1 and 9; cool near 6;
severe storms and most rain near 3,
but most of this rain will fall on
long southern slopes; much less on
northern slopes; crop weather will
average fair. Tbis paragraph is for
north of latitude 3b' between Rockies
crest and meridian 90.
Pacific Slope —Not much rain;
low temperatures near 5; warmer
than usual near 1 and 7; most severe 8)orms near 1; coolest weather

REDUCTION OF SEVEN AND A HALF
PER CENT IN FREIGHT RATES
HAS BEEN ORDERED
HILLS   THAT   NEVR   FAILED  THE
BUFFALO FOR AGES GRAY
WITH EXHAUSTION
A reduction of 7£ per cent in the railway
rates on basic commodities, to become effective August 1, has been ordered by the board
of railway commissioners. The decrease reduces the increase of September, 1920, to 12J
per cent in western Canada and 17]j- per cent
in eastern Canada. The original increase ordered by the board in 1920 was 40 per cent
in the east and 35 per cent in the west. Subsequent reductions brought these figures down
to 25 per cent in the east and 20 per cent in
the west.
The present decrease applies to forest products, building material, brick, cement, lime
and plaster, potatoes, fertilizers, other than
chemicals, ores, pig iron, blooms and billots,
wire rods and scrap iron. Grain and flour
rates were fixed by parliament during the session just ended, in accordance with-the rates
prevailing under the Crows Nest Pass agreement.
The judgment rescinds all increases provided for in September, 1920, on coal other
than anthracite and coal from the head of the
lakes westward. The principle of arbitral ies
from the Maritime provinces to all points west
of Port Arthur has been approved, the St.
John arbitrary being 24c a hundred first class
and 12o fifth class. The board has no jurisdiction of the Canadian government railways and
no directions were made regarding that system. The arbitraries do not apply traffic between the Maritime provinces and Montreal
or to poi ts west of Montreal and east of Fort
William.
Schedule A rates, which means the general
rate   basis    throughout    Quebec   and   Ontario, are   extended   to  include the territory
between   North Bay and Sault Ste. Marie.
Tlie increase in rates on excess baggage provided for in September, 1920, has been elimi
nated. The mountain rate scale in British Col
umbia has been reduced to a basis of one mile
in British Columbia to 1| in the prairies, the
foi mer basis having been 1 \ miles. This means
tbat the difference between the mountain and
prairie scales has been cut in two. Reductions
are provided for grain aud grain products going  t:.   British Columbia for domestic use,
amounting to an average to about 10 percent.
With  these exceptions all other rates are
continued as at present existing.
The board did not find any unjust discrimination against the west as compared with the
east.
Dealing with British Columbia, the judgment says that the rates of the new "Pacific"
standard mileage tariff are to be constructed
by applying to the "Prairie" standard tariff
tor distances up to and including 750 miles,
1^ miles lor one miles, and to the rates so
produced the 25 mile differences of the "Prairie" standard scale are to be added for each
25 miles over 750 miles, so as to produce standard through rates for part mountain and
part prairie hauls.
Tlie distributing rates from recognized mainland distributing centers in British Columbia,
other than Vancouver and New Westminster,
as well as the tariff between Vancouver and
New Westminster and points west of New
Westminster, will be constructed from the
new standard tariff in the same manner as at
preseut. All commodity mileage rates between
stations in Pacific territory and between Pacific aud prairies territory are to be made to
conform to the new standard.
Here and there a hilltop eighty has worn
out and iies beneath the sun, indifferent to
the seeds in its keeping, to the hungry who
tramp over it. Hills that never failed the buffalo for nobody knows htfw many thousand
years are gray with exhaustion of extensive
production.
Fortunately farmers are awakening to the
fact soil must bo revitalized. Public opinion
forbids the burning of straw. Legumes have
been put to making hay and nitrogen. Fertilizer companies are doing business. Phos
phrte and limestone deposits are being distributed. The hilltop eighties are being rejuvenated. Just as the land has been devitalized, here and there a farm community has
worn.
No nation has ever risen above the level of
its agricvhure, and the dead communities
scattered through the United States are comparable to the white alkali patches on the
hilltop eighty. And if allowed to spread will
ruin our country as sure as blight will wipe
out an apple orchard.—American Farm Bureau Federation.

According to Herbert Hoover, United
States secretary of commerce, the following
five conditions must be established in Europe
before world trade can go on satisfactorily:
First, such political relations between the
states in Europe themselves as will produce
an atmosphere of peace and destroy the atmosphere of war.
Second, the reduction of armament, not
only to lessen government expeuditures, but
to give confidence of peace.
Third, the intergovernmental debts, including German reparations, must be fixed upon
such a definite basis of payment of interest
and principal as will create reasonable confidence that payments will be met.
Fourth, the balancing of budgets, more
through reductions in expenditures than by
the increase in taxation; and a cessation of
the consequent inflation in currency and short-
term bills.
Fifth, the ultimate establishment of the gold
standard with the assistance of either credits
or gold loans, and, where necessaay, the acceptance of diminished gold content in many
old units of currency.

THE GRAND CIRCLE MOTOR TOUR
A Wonderful Trip for Motorists That Take* In All the Glories of the Pacific Coast
From Banff South to Los Angeles.
SLENDER blue ribbon of trail,
5,000 miles long,threading together tbe ten finest scenic jewels of tbe
western continent—thai i.s what western motor maps will show by the
end of,the comiiiR summer. It i.s
called "Grand Circle Tour" and it
will offer tha most wonderful variety
of natural scenery accessible by motor road in the world. One last
link in the chain, only a few miles
now in length, remains to be completed. Then the road will be open
to the motorists of tbe continent.
This unfinished section, from tbe
Vermilion summit near Banff, Alberta, in the Canadian Pacific Rockies, down to thc Columbia '"alley,
will, Canadian Government engineers
say, bc ready for traffic by September
next. /*M that remains to bc done
is the grading and widening of thc
unfinished portion of the road. Then
the great loop, dream of a few far-
visioned meu, will he completed, and
the stream of tourists may flow along
Ihis unparalleled motor highway.
What  will it mean?    It will  mean
that the motorists may  starj at Cal
gary, Alberta—as this is a loop highway, of course, start at any other
point on it he desires-—travel west
through the grassy foothills to thc
great front door of thc Rockies which
is, incidentally, the gateway to the
Banff National Park. AlOllanff,
where there is already a motor campsite as well as several good hotels,
he may linger to bathe in the radium
hot springs, play golf among the
clouds or fish in some of the numerous well stocked lakes or streams
of the locality. From Banff Ihe road
proceeds westward to Castle, thence
by a.short detour to the wonderful
Lake Louise region and on to Moraine Lake and the rugged sublimity
of the Valley of the Teu Peaks. Returning, it climbs by easy grades
to tbe Vermilion Pass, S.2n4 feet,
then drops down to the Columbia
Valley through the Kootenay Na-
ional Park, to Lake Windermere
and the village of Invermere on its
shore.
Kvery mile of thc way through the
Canadian Parks has been built with
an eye to easy travelling and scenic
grandeur. Giant peaks, often hcl-
ineted with a snow cap centuries old,
guard the way. Deer, wild sheep,
elk and goat may be seen feeding
fearlessly on the slopes and practically every valley holds a blue lake
stocked with trout From the Divide
the road runs tbrough hitherto unopened country, which is one of the
richest both in scenery and big game
in the Rockies. From Invermere it
drops south, skirts the beautiful
Windermere and Columbia Lakes,
the latter source of thc mighty Columbia river, through deep-shaded
forests to the International Boundary
which il cut' just north of Metaline,
Washington From Bonner's Ferry
it swing* south over excellently con
structed roads through Spokane,
Walla Walla, and Pendleton, vthsrt
it links up with the Columbia Highway from Portland. ..Then it drops
down past the eastern entrance to
Crater Lake National Park, to San
Francisco and on to Los Angeles.
From this point a short detour will
allow thc motorist to see the famous
Yoscmitc as well as Grand Park and
Sequoia Park, the home of the giaftt
redwoods. Then, travelling east, be
may visit thc Grand Canyon and proceed north via Salt Lake City to the
Yellowstone Park. Fromt, Yellowstone one day's journey will lake him
north to the United States Glacier
National Park and less than two
hours more to thc International Boundary. Following the trail to Cards-
ton, he may make a short detour to
Waterton Lakes Park in Southern
Alberta, thus completing his tenth
National   Park.
Thousands of motorists, it is expected will follow this scenic highway as soon as it is thrown open.
American motorists will want to
come north to see the glories of the
Rockies; Canadian motorists will
want to see beautiful California and
thc wonders of thc Grand Canyon
and the Yellowstone. This will mean
an international exchange of money
as important as many an industry, as
well as increased international good
will.
The new road also opens up an all
Canadian circle tour, via Banff, Lake
Windermere, the Columbia Valley
and returning over the Crow's Nest
Pass to the prairies. This will afford a 600 mile trip for Canadian
motorists through the heart of the
most wonderful scenery in the Rockies, in which for the whole distance
the tourist will either be among or
iu full sight of thc snowpeaks,

Port Arthur. — The International
Union of Hungry Hoboes, in so far
as its membership affects Port
Arthur and Fort William will suffer
a ckpletemcnt in its ranks this summer. At Navilus the first station
cast of Port Arthur, there are lo-
caied a couple of plain clothea
policemen who are gathering -the
'boo into the long arms of the law*;
One day the officers brought seven
knights of the road into Port Arthur.
Hunting was good during next day,
too, when a party of nine arrived oa
Number One to keep the others company. In Port Arthur Police Court
each was fined $20 or one month in
prison.   They were taken to the jail.
When a 'bo drops off a freight at
Navilus he is least expecting to
meet a guardian of the law. That
ia why it is stated thc Canadian
Pacific Railway has put constables
there to gather in the members ot
the ridc-for-nothing clan.

Vancouver,—Tae Canadian Paciie
Railway has inaugurated its new
"Empress Special" train service between this city and Chicago. Little
more than an hour after the "Em-
fress of Asia" arrived the special
rain pulled out for the east, carrying about fifty passengers, who took
advantage of the new service. The
'schedule of the train calls for the
delivery of the passengers in Chicago in seventy-two hours and those
who are going to the Atlantic will
be able to oatoh their boats there
for the OM Country in quicker time
than evar before. The equipment of
the special consisted of two standard sleepers, an observation, and a
baggage car. Extra equipment wae
also attached to the Imperial Limited to accommodate the large number of passengers who crossed the
continent by the All-Canadian rout*.
Toronto.—D. C. Coleman, vice-
president of the western lines, Canadian Pacific Railway, and just back
from a tour to the coast, speaks
optimistically of conditions in British Columbia.
"General business in the weat ii
Improving," he continued. "There it
a return of confidence since the
aet'ding has been done, and the result has been, not a marked, but a
very steady improvement.
'"British Columbia is rapidly forcing ahead. Although the domestic
market for timber is not up to normal, the increase in export to foreign countries Is encouraging. The
mining industry is going full blast.
Smelters are in operation everywhere in the minrng districts, despite the low price of copper. More
than seven million bushels of wheat
were shipped from Victoria during
the past year. Three-fifths of this
went to Great Britain, and the balance was shipped to the Orient,
Montreal.—The new C.P.R. steam-
ihip "Empress of Australia" sailed
on her first voyage from Greenock,
Scotland, where she wes bnilt, for
Vancouver via the Panama Canal,
on Friday, June 16. She is a twin-
screw steamship of Kl ,400 gross
tons, 590 feet in length, 75.2 feet
in breadth, and 41.5 feet in depth.
She was ordered before the War
broke put and was in the builders'
hands when hostilities commenced.
Since the conclusion of the War she
has been converted into an oil-burner. Her equipment and standard
are similar to the equipment and
standard of the "Empress of Scotland." She is scheduled to arrive
at Vancouver about July 10, and
will leave on her firat regular voyage to the Orient on July 27. Capt.
Samuel Robinson, R.N.R., former
commander of the "Empress of Rustle," has been' given command of
the new vessel.
