Col. Kdgett Addressed the
Member of Liberal Association on Tuesday
Today do ooe in Canada need be
ashamed of Liberalism, or to call
himself a Liberal, was the trend of
a short address delivered by Col.

evening before n general meeting of
the Orand Forks Liberal associas

B os for this assertion.
The meeting whs the best attended
held here for some time, there being
about a hundred persons present,
nearly half of whom 'were ladies,
Thie indicates that the electors are
fully alive to the Importance of the
issues involved in the federal by-i
election in thiA-unstituency.
Mr. Edgett went fully into the
issues involved in the present by-
election, and geve good reasons for
not ligning himself with either of
the old parties on his return from
the front. He had siuce watched
tbe actions of tho tbree parties and
had become a Liberal. He was right
at home in Grand Forks, as ho had
addressed an audience bere on-a
previous occation.

The historic past of the Nootka section of the West Coast, waa recalled
recently whon Lieutenant-Governor Walter C. Nichol, of British Columbia, unveiled and dedicated a monument commemorating the explorations of
those great English navigators, Captain Cook and Captain Vancouver.
The monument was built under the auspices of the Historic Sites and
Monuments Board of Canada whieh is placing similar memorials across tlio
Dominion on sites hallowed by interesting chapters of Canadian history.
A large party travelled on the Canadian Pacific S.S. Princess Maquinna
for the ceremony and left the steamer at the cannery whaif, boarding
launches for the short run to Friendly Cove. The pacty included Lieut.-
Governor Nichol, H. J. S. Muskett, his secretary, Judge Howay and Mr.
Forsyth, Dr. C. S. Newcombe, the well-known historical authority who
wrote the "Circumnavigation of Vancouver Island," Prof. W. N. Sage of the
University of British Columbia, Mrs. R. B. McMicking, representing Uie
I.O.D.E., Mrs. and Miss Howay, Thomas Deasy, late Indian agent for
the Queen Charlotte agency and a pioneer of 1X59, Dr. D;ivid Donald,
Mrs. Cave-Browne-Cave, and Professor Macmillan Brown, chancellor of
the University of New Zealand. Dr. Macmillan Brown is one of the leading
ethnologists of the Pacific, and has been spending the summer on the coast
investigating the Indians and tlieir customs.
The new monument is seven feet broad by eleven feet high, with a
standard size bronze tablet bearing the following inscription:
"Nootka Sound, discovered by Capt. Cook, in March, 177.S. In June,
1789, Spain took possession and established and maintained a settlement
until 1795. The capture of British vessels in 1789 almost led to war, which
was avoided by the Nootka Convention, 1790. Vancouver and Quadra met
here in August, 1792, to determine the land to bo restored under the convention."
A feature of the entertainment provided those who took part in the unveiling ceremony was the Indian dancing, arranged by aborigines 'iom

The fruit grower of Yale constituency will,
if he has his own best interests at  heart, vote
for D. W. Sutherland on election  day.   The
present Liberal government at  Ottawa has
given adequate protection to the fruit itidus
try of the province, and it has made the antidumping clause effective, things that the Borden and Meighen administrations failed to do.
Tbere is no doubt of the duty on fruit having
been imposed against the will ol the people of
the prairie provinces, and of the government
making enemies in that part ofthe country by
not putting fruit on the free list. If the electors
of Yale, then, return an opposition member the
Ottawa government would be justified in   believing that British Columbia does not want
the present duty on fruit, and it might accede
to tha wishes of the prairie people.   The government has two years more   to run before it
needs appeal to the country, and in  that time
the British Columbia grower might be ruined.
Yale is the principal fruit growing district in
lhe province, and it is the duty of Yale to tell
Ottawa that it is satisfied with the present
protection of the industry.

In the course of an investigation of some
plant diseases that attack the common onion
plant, Dr J. C. Walker has discovered that
the colored variety of onions aro highly resistant to the disease, whereas the pure white
onions succumb at once. The secret is that
thc skins of the colored onions contain a
chemical which is poisonous to the germs
c uising the disease. If one ol these germs
tries to ponetrate into the colored onion bulb
the germ is killed. White onions lack ihe
germ poison and disease finds ihem there fore
an easy prey.

The way to approach the E.P. ranch is from Calgary
to High River, 40 miles south, en the Canadian
Pacific Railway. From High River one lias to drive
southwest a distance of 36 miles through one of the
richest grain-growing and stock-raising countries in
North Ameriea. In the distance the jagged peaks of the
Rockies dip the clouds and below, weli-wooded, are the
foothills. The road cuts through the centre of the
"Bar-U" ranch aud about one mile and a half from the
limits of the "Bar-U" the low rambling bungalow where
the Prince in now living is seen through a pretty glen. It
is a homelike looking place typical of many a rancher's
home in "Sunny Alberta." Here his Royal Highness goes
"back to the land."
The Prince of Wales has never ceased to exhibit a
keen interest in his ranch, and fresh indications are
periodically given of the importance ha attaches' to it
and the work it is doing. After purchasing tho ranch, and
beforo returning to England, the Prince made arrange-
mentn for the shipment of some o( tho best st< ■)■: in the

Devon Moors, a typo of animal previously unknown in
Canada. From time to time since then fresh additions
of the most excellent stock have been made. The wort:
still continues.
In an area such as Western Canada, which has for
years devoted itself to the elevation of the quality of
livestock and has become internationally famous for the
superior typo of its horses and cattle, importations musr.
be of an outstanding distinctiveness to be worthy of
special note, but this tha E.P. Ranch has effected. At
Alberta provincial exhibitions the animals from High
River are attractive features.
In its brief history, the E.P. Ranch has come to play
an important part in the Western Canadian live-stock
industry, and it has done not a llttlo in the development
of a more sympathetic understanding for Canadian
agriculture in the. British Isltjd. Its establishment was
an indication of tho Importance attached to agriculture
in the Dominions of the Empire its continuance and
promotion an encouragement to the western live-stock
industry, faith in the future, and a stimulus to the

ElectrG-piafciiii.g a Canadian Railway Operation
-shewing  electro-plating  opera Hunt, at tlio Angus Shops, Montreal.     No. 1 shows the tanks In which aumll a-rttcleB an 1
Ing process.     The text below explains the other photographs fully.
I for plating, and No. 8 the
Passengers on the Trans-Canada ana other Canadian trains have often
admired the tableware with which the dining cars are equipped, but
comparatively few of the travelling public appreciate the extent to which
eleotro-platlng enters into every day use on a Railway. As a matter of
teot, practically all metal hardware pans of passenger equipment interiors are plated, many of the engine parts, Including the copper re-
flector of the head-light are plated, and various platings are used, on a
thouaand and one articles which enter daily into the life of a railroader.
The traveller notices the sliver plate perhaps more than any other,
but many metals are used by the railroad companies. Cold, for in-
stance, IB used by the Canadian Paolfic for plating- pepper caster tops
and similar articles, copper is used on lighting end other metal car fixtures, zinc on refrigerator hardware, nickel on kitchen utensils, tlu on
trainmen's lanterns, mercury on telegraph elements and aluminum or
lead on miscellaneous articles.
At its Angus Shops, Montreal, the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
has quite an extensive plant where the most of its electro-plating is car-
ried on. The method used by this Company Is a simple one but none the
I«n effective.
The articles to be plated are first chemically cleaned, after which
tbey are usually bung from a metal bar into a long vat where they ave
Immersed in a chemical solution which varies with the metal''to be d;v
posited. The electric current, which is of low voltage, is. co:
positive polo to the metal plate or plates, and the negativ, lu i • i< r
MB ****** tk* artlelea to be plated are suspended.   As the electric cur-.
rent flows from the plating metal to the suspended artiotesv the metal Is
carried through the solution and deposited ln the form of a thin coating
over the entire surface of the required article.
This process is well illustrated In No. 2, which shows two electrlo
headlight reflectors ln the process Of receiving silver plating. In this
case the plate of silver is suspended ln the centre of the reflector, which
is filled with cyanide ef potassium solution, and the electric current flows
from the plate to the reflector which ls, itself, the negative pole.
Illustration No. 3 shows the next step in the treatment of the headlight reflector, which, by the way, gives the highest concentration of light
known. This is hand burnishing, the operator burnishing two reflectors
in a working (lay. For arttelos which can be readily polished by a
rotating buffing wheel, this is accomplished ln the manner shown in No. 4.
Upon completion of the polishing operation, articles to be so treated are
placed in a metal container and, by means of a small compressed air gun,
sprayed with suitable lacquer. If it ls desired to oxidise the plated
article ie order to make it harmonize with woodwork or other material,
as ia oft™ tlio case with copper platings, It Ib exposed to heat or vapor,
or immersed in some solution prior to the application of the finishing
coat of. lacquer.
The Canadian Pacific Railway Company was the first large corporation iu Canada to lnstal its own electro-plating plant, but during the last
,   ■ vei:-, thia method of protecting metal from oxidation has developed
into quite au industry and one which employs a large number of i
' woi ionen.

Leo Solloway, recently appointed
Asiatic Freight Agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway with olliee at
Montreal and supervision over Oriental and Australasian traffic via
Pacific Ports.
Born in Vancouver in 1895, Mr.
Solloway has the distinction now of
being the youngest official in Canadian Pacific service, a distinction
which he has won through fourteen
years' service in the freight department of the Company. He com-
menced work as stenographer in the
steamship department of the General
Freight office in Vancouver in 1910,
and remained in that department
until 1915 when he enlisted for active
service with the 72nd Highlanders.
He returned from overseas in the Fall
of 1917 and was attached to the
steamship export department in Vancouver until 1918 when he was loaned
to the British Ministry of Shipping,
acting as assistant to the agent of the
Ministry at the Pacific port.
In June 1919, Mr. Solloway went
to Montreal as chief clerk to the
Asiatic Freight Agent. Two years
later he was appointed chief clerk lo
the General Foreign Freight Agc;,-:t,
and last May appointed as Act'n-»

Tourist business throughout Canada has been remarkably productive this year and it is estimated
that its total value for the Dominion will exceed $100,000,000.
This places the tourist traffic high
among Canada's industries.

The "Princess Kathleen",
the two fine steamers uniler construction for the Canadian Pacific
Railway's British Columbia coastal
service, was launched at Glasgow,
Scotland, on September 27th. Lady
Mount Stephen, widow of Lord
Mount Stephen, former president of
thc company, performed the launching ceremony.
As an indication of how plentiful
wild (fame has become of recent
years in the Province of Quebec
comes a report from Montreal,
which ri cords the recent appearance
of a full-grown hull moose in Rose-
mount, a suburb of thc city. It is
thought to have strayed into the
neighborhood from the forest to the
north. The aninif.l was quite tame
and was easily captured.
The Duke of Alba, who, with
other S; anish grandees", recently
completed an extensive tour of Canada, purchased a number of very
valuable furs for gifts to be presented to his friends, including the
King and Queen of Spain. The furs
were acquired while the Duke was
sojourning at Banff, the popular
mountain resort en tbe Canadian Pacific main line.
So greatly has the turkey industry grown in Saskatchewan that
marketing pools have now bean arranged by the Saskatchewan Department of Agriculture and the
Saskatchewan Grain Growers' Association for the marketing at both
dressed and live turkeys this fall.
Inspectors will be furnished for
grading and giving killing and
dressing demonstrations.
do heavy was the movement of
grain from the lakes to the port of
Montreal recently that serious congestion was feared. The storage
capacity of the port is 10,100,000
bushels and thc grain in sight was
greatly in excess of this figure.
But skilful handling quickly reduced the amount in hand to 7,966,-
442 bushels, relieving the situation
completely. No further possibility
of congestion is anticipated.
It is expected that before tha
season closes, the work of rock-
ballasting the main lines of the
Canadian Pacific Railway in the
Quebec District between Montreal
and Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto
and Montreal and Quebec will bs
completed. The latter section requires only a few miles to be finished, while the other portions of
line referred to have already been
finished. As a result, the Canadian
Pacific will have in theBe lines a
road-bed which is not excelled by
any other on this continent.
