Victoria, Msrch 13 —Perhaps the
less said about tbe Pacific Grent
Eantern royal commission tbese
days tbe better. Tbe affair is dragging along monotonously, witb the
third party counsel beating about
the bush in a frantic endeavor to
discover something Bnt the farther
the enquiry proceeds the less there
seems of Jnterest. Wben tbe corn,
mission commenced it' fittings on
Friday, February 25, there seemed
a possibility that the McRae forces
had something up their sleeve and
sensations might, davelop. But so
far as interest is concerned, tbe
thing has developed into a faree-
comedy, with tbe new political
aspirants playing the du-lroleof
comedian and villain of the piece,
Witb charges, serious if true, made
by prominent men, it was expected
that tbere might be a semblance of
truth. However, the charges against
Hon Mr Stoan and Mr. Bowser
were quickly proved groundless,
and now the charges of rash expenditure and loose administration !*ave
beeu exploded.
It seems a pity that the wheels of
progress should be blocked by what
appears to be political manipula<
Hon, while the t xpayer must "foot
the bill. At any rate, when tbe enquiry, or comedy, is finished the
public will be in a position to stand
firmly behind the administration
and for all time give attention to the
needs of tbe day ratber tban the
selfish ambition of power-seekers.
All were agreed that if the government were incompetent, crooked
or short-sighted it was time for a
changa. But the -tareful observer
oan see nothing but a complete vindication. Meanwhile tbe stock of the
McRae forces has dwindled to tbe
vanishing point. Tbe third party
expresses its intention to remain in
the field. Why, no one knows. Perhaps the real reason will show itself
in time.

Vork market at 75c and tl a dozen,
or more. Little fellows; but Sun

as any.
Herein is tbe lesson of our own
fruit men of the Okanagan: The
little oranges of California, the
medium sized oranges from Cali-
forni, and the bfg, Al quality of
oranges from California, all' are put
on the market under the Sunkissed
brand. But tbose orange shippers
of California realize that there are
different grades of markets foi
oranges, as they have different sizes
of orang , and they ship to the
grade of market tbe grade of oranges

not—if tnose shippers were to send
to Enderby, for instance, No. 1
oranges at No. 1 orange prices the
fruit would rot on tbe hands of tbe
fruit dealer—the price would be
prohibitive. But, give us a fairly
good orange—sound, juicy, and
well packed, at a price we can pay,
and everybody can afford to eat
them. On the otber hand, let them

of these animals have recently been
brought in, and to tbe disappoint*

Notes. Notions and Notables
It is interesting to observe that the great
English manufocthrers of aeroplanes are giving much attention to designing and building
light machines; that i.s, machines with engines
of less than ten horsepower. One of the leading rranufacturers recently said that such machines can be produced for less than £100 (now
about $450) and that the cost of maintaining
and running them will be small. They are easy
to pilot, climb well, can take off from an ordi
nary field and 'land on it at very low speed
and require little shed room.
Out prices on present types of radio receiving apparatus are generally regarded as forecasting greatly simplified and and improved
receiving sets. One prominent inventor is said
not long ago to have walked into the office of
one of the large electrical manufacturing
plants carrying a small box, wbich he set down
on an official's desk. Upon his turning a button music became clearly audible to everyone
present. The little box contained a simplified
receiving set, including the aerial, and the invention so impressed the officials that they
made a.i range nients at once to manufacture it.
A thrift shop is merely an old-fashioned
"rummage sale" put upon a permanent basis
and organized to keep the community attics
and dark closets well combed of their superfluous articles. It does not take a large town
to support one thrift shop. Poor people are
not the only ones interested in picking up bargain, especially when the shop is devoid of
the more objectionable characteristics of a
secondhand store and the customers realize
that the proceeds ofthe sales go toward some
worthy object. Thrift shops in several small
eastern cities have been successful.
mystic qualities of the cup. Geromancy con
sisted of dropping melted wax into water and
divining by the forms the wax assumed in
cooling. It is a very old art, but tea was only
introduced i. to Europe in the seventeenth
century; yet the primitive mind still subsisting
in man at once seized upon the tea grounds as
a means of foretelling the future, as that same
mind had seized upon the melted wax thousands of years before.
An Easter sport which is still popular in
the. north of England is the egg rolling competition, On Easter Monday, particularly
in Preston, where there are many enthusiastic
players, the people turn out to the hill, where
hard boiled eggs, dyed in every hue, are rolled
down the slopes. The game consists in each
competitor trying to break as man of his rivals'
eggs as possible as they roll down the incline.
The winner is he whose eggs remain unbroken
to the last, Tho custom has spread to Washington in the United States Aaother curious
custom of unknown origin is observed in some
parts of Switzerland. A hundred eggs are distributed over a level plot of ground, and so
covered with sand that their whereabouts can
not be detected. Then the young men and
women of tie district dance over the spot. If
any couple are lucky enough to get through
the dance without treading on any of the eggs,
they consider it a sign of betrothal.
The committee of reparation experts headed
by Brigadier-General Charles G. Dawes, has
begun its final task—the preparation of the
report to the reparation commission. The experts are anxious to frame a plan which will
reqnire no revision.
In their enquiry their attention has fallen
on the following points:
First—Germany today represents the world's
best equipped and potentially most efficient
industrial organization.
Second—Germany is practically without a
domestic debt, state or private,-whereas the
victor nations are heavily burdened with do:
mestic war debts.
Third—The Germans as a whole are paying
less taxes than the English, French or Americans.
Fourth—Germany, if she shouldered the
total reparations bill, would have a smaller
war debt than if she had won the war without
On the other hand the experts have noted
First—Germany is almost on the edge of
financial chaos and needs a loan to get going
again, especially to finance reparations payments in kind.
Second—Germany must have stable money
to get her economic machine going again.
Third—Germany, while she has good crops,
has not good distribution, due to economic
difficulties caused by the fall of the mark.
Fourth—Germany has exporthd capital to
the amount of five billion dollars, but now she
has only about two billion abroad.
Fifth—Germany has not a proper realization of her position and appears to place too
much importance on what she calls preserving
her sovereignty.
Sixth—German's tax system is bad because
it lays too much of a burden on small incomes
and notenongh on large incomes.
Some of these points will not form part of
the experts' report, but these rough headings
represent broadly the material on which the
experts are working.
With regard to the German industrial machine, the experts have found that the reich's
aailroads, both with respect to roadbeds and
rolling stock, are the best in the world. While
she   has not paid reparations, Germany has
built, since the armistice, actually more loco
motives and freight cars than she needs.   She
has improved terminals, tunnels and bridges,
aud the only part of her railroad equipment
which is not entirely up to date is the uphol
stering of her passenger coaches, which is, in
cidentally,  what would  be noticed  by foreigners.
It is the opinion of the experts that German industry, being free from debt and with
excellent machinery and transportation system, is in a position to produce enormous
wealth when Germany gets seriously back to
wotk with a reorganized economic system.

he became hypnotized and "saw things." The
magician interpreted what the boy thought he

, j'fhe Objects of thi- Institution, for which Incorporation was reoently obtained, are: "To provide a Some and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the m iny of such unfortunates, who, for the laek of suoh service, perish every y >nr; and to return these little ones to tbeir parents, at
sohool age with nor nal, 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 ia 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 generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.

Definite Policy of Immigration for
Canadian National Railways
A unique record of Canadian railway pioneer engineers isembodied
in a photograph taken in Vancouver
recently of three prominent members
of the profession whose record for continued service in the survey and construction of railways is possibly
■without parallel. They are—reading
from left to right, H. J. Cambie,
M.E.I.C., eighty-seven years of age;
T. H. White, M.E.I.C, seventy-six
years of age; and J. H. Kennedy,
M.E.I.C, seventy-two years of age.
They are all resident in Vancouver.
Each has been identified with one
of the three great transcontinental
railroads now operating in British
Columbia, as chief engineer on the
location and construction of the
original mciin lines within the Province, pioneered through the wilderness of mountains, canyons, forests
and plains by feats of engineering
skill and perseverance not surpassed
and scarcely equalled in any other
part of the world. Each one is enjoying excellent health, and occupies
the very highest place in the respect
and esteem of the members of the
engineering profession together with
the general public. Another very
Interesting coincidence lies in the
fact that each one possesses the apparently magic name "Henry".
Henry John Cambie, M.E.I.C,
was born on October 25th, 1836, in
County Tipperary, Ireland. He had
charge of tne location of the present
main line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway from the Coast to Griffin
Lake, and was chief engineer of the
world-famous construction through
the Fraser Canyon from Yale to
Lytton, and also the construction of
the section from Savona Ferry to
Shuswap Lake.
Mr. Cambie has been continuously
associated with the Canadian Pacific
Railway and its predecessor, the
Government Railway, for sixty-eight
years. His name is perpetuated by
the station on the Canadian Pacific,
"arabie, on  the giant loop  below
Glacier. Mr. Cambie explored, surveyed and planned the whole course
of the Canadian Pacific through a
large section of the province of British Columbia, and under his direct
supervision the part that runs

Thomas Henry White, M.E.I.C,
was born on January 27th, 1848, .at
St. Thomas, Ontario. He was chief
engineer of the location and construction of the present main line from the
Yellowhead Pass, down the North
Thompson and Fraser Canyons to
New Westminster. It is interesting
to note that he was Mr. Cambie's
right-hand assistant during the work
in the Fraser Canyon.
Mr. White has always been popular
with his fellow engineers, being noted
for abundant good nature, keen sense
of humour, and an absolute fairness

WHEN, a little more than a
year ago,  Sir  Henry W.
Thornton,    K. B. E.,    was
chosen to head the Canadian National   Railways,
one of  his first §
acts was to put I
into motion ma- if
chinery for  aid- f
ing in the coloni- $
zation    and    de- |
velopment of Can-1§
ada,   particularly I
along the lines of :|
the National Sys- S
tern.   He realized $
•that   one   of the I
crying   needs   of |
Canada   was  for |
more   population, |
and he has since |
been « quoted,   on |
several occasions |
as saying that if |
Canada    had    a
population of
twenty-five    mil-
Ion  people,  Canada   would   have
no   railway   problem.
The organization of a depart- Dr. W. J. Black
inont to look after colonization and
development was entrusted by Sir
Henry to Mr. W. D. Robb, Vice-
President, and Mr.. Robb at once
proceeded to build up the necessary
ivganization to look after this most
important national work. Investi-
g-atums, conferences and careful
planning gradually brought into
being an effective department, the
(Tort of the year culminating in
he engagement of Dr. W. J. Black,
•eputj-t? Minister of Immigration
nnd Colonization in the Federal
fovernment, as Manager of the
Colonization and Development De-
r. irtment of the Canadian National
Puilways, with headquarters in
I -ndon, England. That was early
In the Fall of 1923. Dr. Black proceeded at once to Great Britain,
;V>iere he spent some weeks carry
mir out a series of investigations.
These completed, he returned to
Canada and a general conference
•f all officers of the department
was called and a definite plan of
colonization and development was
i 'awn up and announced. This
was the first definite announcement
p i immigration to be announced
ii  Canada.
Dr. Black is a man who ia thoroughly   respected,   both   for   his
opinions   and   his    achievements,
throughout Canada.   He carries a
lasting and  (ren-
yi^y^l' ' "?* uine   enthusiasm
m into his work, and
as a quiet but eloquent and convincing speaker
he is well fitted
to broadcast the
message of his
important mission.
The Poliey.
There are seven
points to tbe programme  which
has  received  the
approval   of   Sir
Henry W. Thornton, and the principles   of   policy
will be placed into
effect   i m m e d -
iately.   Dr. Black
sailed   for   England    again   on
January 5th, and
on his arrival in
London   his   department   commenced   to function
actively.   The thorough character
of the policy can be judged from a
recapitulation of the seven principles, which are as follows:

Dr. Black's Career
In engaging Dr. Black, the Canadian National Railways secured
nn officer who is probably better
• cquainted with the immigration
i seds of Canada, and the best
methods of remedying those needs,
than any other man in the country. All his life he has been con-
n cted with the argricultural industry and has run the gauntlet of
all its intricate phases. He was
born and brought up on a farm in
Uufferin County. Ontario, and in
1902 graduated from the Ontario
Agricultural College with a Toronto University degree. At his
graduation he was appointed editor of the "Farmers' Advocate,"
Winnipeg, Manitoba, and he held
this post for two years. In 1905
he joined the Government of Manitoba as Deputy Minister of Agriculture, a post which he left the
following year to became President
of the Manitoba Agricultural College. He remained in this important position until 1916, when he became Commissioner of Agriculture
for Canada. At the conclusion of
the Great War in 1918, Dr. Black
was appointed Chairman of the
Soldiers' Settlement Board of Canada, a position he held until his
appointment, in 1921, as Deputy
Minister of Immigration and
Colonization for Canada.

THE story of the Winnipeg
forts of the early fur-trading
days—Rouge and Gibraltar,
Douglas and Garry, iB among the
most interesting that could be
found anywhere. When Verendrye
came to the junction of the Red
and Assiniboine Rivers in 1738 he
established Fort Rouge. The
Northwest Company, sixty years
later, established Fort Gibraltar,
and a few years later Fort Douglas, named sfter Thomas Douglas, the fifth Karl of Selkirk, was
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 the feuds terminated with the amalgamation of
the two companies in 1821, and the
first Fort Garry was erected as a
trading post end   settlers' depot.
This was an elaborate structure
with stone walls, bastions and portholes.
. On 1831 the1 building of Lower
Fort Garry, 19 miles down tht
river was commenced. This was for
a time the residence of the Governor of Rupert's Land and tha
seat of government. In 1885 Upper Fort Garry was begun at the
junction of the two rivers and thli
was the centre of business, government, education and public affairs for more than 80 years, and
was the nucleus of the present city
of Winnipeg.
The Fort was sold in 1882 and
the front gate, now owned by the
city and standing beside the new
Fort Garry, the hotel of the Canadian National Railways, is all that
