Victoria, Jsn. 11.—Perhaps the
outstanding achievement of Ihe
Oliver Kovt-riitDPiit during 1923 wae
the reduction in freight rates, se
cured only after a long and bitter
fight. However.tlie decresse in rates
does nol satisfy Premier Oliver.wbo
has announced his determination
to carry on tbe fight until sll discrimination against British Colum
bia has been removed.
Thanks to the political aspirations
of certain outside f.ictiona during
the past year, a wrench has beeu
thrown into the machinery of gov..
ernment in this province, but it
promises to have little effect upon
general conditions. Owing to the
rather questionable methods uf the
third party to gain public favor,
through tbe launching of a broad"
side of abuse and vituperatiin, a
thorough 'investigation of Pacific
Great Eastern railway matters is in
prospect. Tbe outcome of this enquiry through a royal commission
will find the political situation unr
changed, excepting tbut tbe gov
ernment will be stronger and the
ambitious P ovincials ousside tbe
pale. But tbe public must pay, first
the cost of tbe enquiry and the con
sequent loss of time of its publie
servants, and secondly tbe figbt for
freight rates adjustment must be
Premier Oliver would be in Ot.
tawa now carrying on tbe fight for
fair play if it weie not for the pending investigation. However, bis bat
is iu tbe riug snd tbere it will stay,
he declares, until justice has been
done by British Columbia. The removal of freight rales discrimination is th! big issue before ebe Pacific province, and while victory will
come eventuslly, it is regrettable
that petty politics must continue to
obstruct tbe legitimate business o
the adminstration.

Vernon, Jan. 10.—The Associated Growers will be paying higher
returns to growers tban will the
shipping concerns in Washington
and Oregon. This was the statement
made at the conference ol editors
and Associated officials I eld in Vernon last Friday afternoon.
The average price received by the
Associated for wrapped aod packed
apples was fl. 20 f.o.b. Britssh Columbia shipping point. From this
price of course must be taken the
deductions whicb were published
last week and repeated in tbis issue.
For ciatee an average price of 78
cents f.o.b. was received,from whicb
tbe crate deduotions must be taken.
Washington apple packers tonay
are willing to sell f.ob. wrapped
and packed C grade apples at 60
cents, while oo the auctions in the
east ourrent sales are so iow on tbe
better grades tbat not mdre then 35
or 40cents f.o.b. will be realized.
Oo December 18 tbe Associated
bad handled 2,183,094 packages of
apples. There was at tbat date remaining in the valley 295,989 boxes;
296,062 were in cold storage at the
coast, on the prairies and in the

At the request of a number of the ratepayers of the city
I have decided to offer myself as candidate for Mayor at the
coming City Election on Thursday, January 17th inst.
During my previous four years' experience in this office
the affairs of the city were conducted in a creditable manner
and the business carried on economically and to jhe best interests of the taxpayers. If elected, I promise to work for
the best interests of the City and the ratepayers.
395,714 crates bad brought an f.o.

Tbe above are eome of tbe facts
given out at the conference, whicb
bad. been called by tbe Associated
Growers so that tbe editors of the
publications interested in tbe fruit
business could get at first hand some
idea of the activities of the coopers,

Mr. McDonald,the sales manager,
explained in detail the relationship
of tbe broker and tbe jobber and
bow it would be impossible to supersede the latter. It would mean,
he Baid, tbe employing of more tban
300 fruit salesmen each year.for that
waB the number working forthedif*
ferent prairie jobbers. The prairie
jobber, be added, not only sold fruit
but handled citrus fruit.soft drinks,
candies and all kinds of confection"
ery ss well as cigars and tobacco,
Tbe British Columbia fruit trade
amounted to not more than 36 per
cent of the average jobbers' yearly
turnover, said Mr. McDonald in
answer to a question.
Not more than forty cars of Ontario apples had been shipped to tbe
prairies this year, said Mr. McDonald. The consumption of apples on
tbe praires in 1923 had been greater
tban for ten years. More than 3000
cars had gone into the three prairie
provinces during the p-el season.
There had been better distribution,
but if tbe Associated bad bad 100
per cent control of the apple crop in
British Columbia tbe net returns
would be from 10 to 15 cents per
box higher.
The situation'in the United States
so far aa apples were concerned was
bad, he aaid. Tbe latest United
States government crop returns
showed that there were ten million
more boxes of apples in stoiage io
that country than for tbe ten-year
average. Tbe average consumption
of apples on tbe coutinent was approximately five million boxes per
month, wbich meant tbat the apple
supply in North America today was
two months'more than it should be.
Last week, said Mr. McDonsId,
tbe Associated bad 234 cars of apples iu cold storage. Tbe cars were
at advantageous points for distributing to the larger consuming centers,
as follows: Seventy cars (64 Mcln
tosh) at Niagara Eallp, 17 in Toronto, 19 in Halifax for late export,
46 in Winnipeg, 53 in Regina, IC in
Moose Jaw, 15 in Calgary, 40 in
The cars in storage in Winnipeg
aud Vancouver were shutting out
America exports. A year ago, said
Mr. McDonald, at this time tbere
were 36 cars of Wioesaps from
Washington stored in Vancouver.
During the past two weeks tbe
Associated had moved forty cars of
Financing for tbe Associated next
season should be easier, was tbe
statement of tbe directors. Of the
1165,000 advanced to tbe holding
company (for buildiugs, etc) f 135,-
000 had been paid back with debentures issued to the growers to
tbat amount, while tbe Aesociated
would have accumulated a reserve
of a quarter of a million
it is hoped tbat arranpeineuts will
be made next season to carry on
financing by commodity.
Io addition to tbe statement issued by Mr Steuart on tbe old
country markets, be answered
number of questions on tbe export
apple deal and gave bis opinion on
several phases of the old country
All thc apples being marketed by
the Associated were going through
one channel and an 300,000 boxes
tbe average f.o.b. price would be 94

Independent oil fft-oducera say that of the
383,000 oil wells in the United Stages 260,000
are run at a loss Whether or not the state
ment is trie, it i.s certainly true that to aban
don or to neglect thousands of small wells
that show a profit only during periods ol high
prices wouid greatly v->, lace production. The
time must inevitably eome when demand will
catch up with supply, but meanwhile many a
small producer will hnd that his sands are inundated and his wells a total loss. It is a
lucky gambler that wins in the oil game.
'•adjusted compensation" varying from $100
to $300. Uoiorado,- Montana and Pennsylvania have passed bills to become effective
when approved in a popular referendum. It
is estimated that «i380,000,000 has already
been distributed, besides $270,000,000 that
the government paid as a bonus to the enlisted
men at the time of their discharge. The
amount of the bonus paid by Great Britain to
its soldiers is $275,910,446. France paid
$373,371,150 and Canada $147,600,000.
Be kind to crazy old cranks. They may be
angels in disguise or misers. One Daniel
Dancer lived in a splendid house on Harrow
Weald Common, England, amid eighty acres
of ground. Too greedy to keep it in order, he
allowed it to go to rack and ruin, till the
gates fell off their hinges, Yet his property at
the time brought him $15,000 a year. He slept
in a sack for years, till Lady Tempest, pitying
his crazy parsimony, presented him with a
bed. This won the -old man's heart, and one
day, when he was dying, he sent for her.made
a will in her favor, put the document into he'r
hands, and gave up the ghost at seventy-
eight, deeply lamented by none who had
known h!m.
Rubber pavement, which ha* been in experimental use in Ecgland for several years,
bas now appeared in America, i'he Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul railway has paved one
of its busy highway crossings with rubber in
tbe belief that in the end it will save money
by it, even though the first cost be higher. Because the distance between the tracks is so
small ordinary pavement so n breaks up under the joltr of heavy trncks and so causes
frequent expensive repairs
Another interesting use of concrete is making hollow poles for electric transmission
lines. The process of casting makes use of
Centrifugal force. A horizontal mould, after
receiving the steel -skeleton of the pole and
the riglit amount of concrete mixture, is
rapidly revolved. The motion drives the con
crete against the side of the mould, where it
forms a deposit two ineiies thick,which serves
as a shell for the steel rods inside. A pole so
made is elastic. One that was sixty four feet
long was subjected to a pull of seventy-three
hundred pounds. It bent seveti feet from the
perpendicular and swung back without injury.
English owners of plum and apple trees
have roceived notice under penalty of a fine to
cut out and burn on their premises all dead
wood on their trees. Inspectors have found
silver leaf boih in orchards and gardens, in
London and country districts. Infected leaves
have a grey silvery appearance and have a distinct sheeu on them. If left, they will not only
make dead wood of the branches on which
they appear, but in a little while may destroy
the whole tree.
A few months ago when the Duke of York
married Lady Elizabeth Bower-Lyon all the
English papers spoke of the Scotch Jeride as
Lady "Betty." Apparently that was the right
thing to do But what the new Duchess of
York calls herself is quite a different matter.
The wedding present that she and her royal
spouse recently sent to Lady Rachel Cavendish was marked simply, "From Albert and
Lizzie." Lizzie! Girls who are are about to

The word "pharmacist," which is of Freuch
origin, seems likely to supplant in America
the word "druggist" and in England the term
"chemist" as applied to a purveyor of drugs,
American druggists think the word "drugs"
has fallen into disfavor and is altogether too
narrow a word I'm- modern ideas of medicine.
British chemists on the other hand are protesting the right of the pharmacist to use the
term "chemist" and propose that, pharmacists
shall call themselves by their own name hereafter.

A new maiket news service of the United
States department of agriculture will bring
producer and cousumea into a relationship
closer than has ever obtained before and big
with promise of common benefit. The new
service, which coversjthe region from Kansas
City to the Paeitic coast, will furnish daily
news, by radio and leased wires, of food prices
in the big cities anfi with a branch station
at Atlanta and extensions already established
or planned in other patts of the south and
west will keep the greater part of tho food-

The conferring of a war medal by the British
government upon a homing pigeon not only is
a pleasant bit of sentiment but calls new at-
tion to the services that homing pigeons have
rendered to mankind in peace as well as in
war. The incident recalls the fact that homing
p'geons were the foundation of two great fortunes. Before the days of the telegraph Baron
Rothschild ussd great numbers of pigeons to
bring the earliest information of the stock
market and exchange in Loudon to his Paris
i-auking houses and Paul de Jieuter, the
founder of the great European news agency
that corresponds to the Associated Press in
America, used carrier pigeons as his first messengers,

The )ojects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, ire: "To provide a Home and Ll-fuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Miintenanoe; to Save the Lives of
even a few c»f the many of suoh unfortunates, who, for the lack of suoh service, pirish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool ige with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds.
This is a large and graatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at tho Government offices in the verious provinoes reveals the fact that there
are at the presant. time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yot been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
yoars 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," Cliorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu 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 looated 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. A" ****'****-,-**

When to travel upon the sea was to venture in great
danger it was usually thought wise by the voyagers
io propitiate the god of the waters by making gifts to him
before setting sail, and oftentimes, when Neptune displayed hiB wrath at sea, human sacrifices were made to
him. To our superstitious ancestors the son of Saturn
and Ops had great power over the waves, especially those
of the sea, and had, therefore, in his hands the welfare of
all vessels and their human and other freight. The
worship of Neptune was early introduced into Pome,
and July 23rd, "Neptunalla," was his feast
As science reduced the terrors of the' sea, and
education and higher civilization erased the sometimes
terrible superstitions from the minds of the world, so the
worship of and sacrifices to Neptune ceased, l.ut even to
this day he is venerated by many Latin and Scandinavian
■iailors and no ship crosses the equator without some
recognition being made of him. Usually this takes the
orm of a burlesque performance in which those who are
akin*? their fint "crossing of the line" are initiated into
the mysteries of the deep.
The unique photograph reproduced above was taken
aboard the Canadian Pacific "Empress of France" while
on a "Round the World" cruise last year. Neptune
boarded the great liner in the early morning of the day
on which the "line" was crossed, and held court. He
was attended by the Royal Barber and other high
officials who assisted in the initiation ceremony. Most
of the passengers were summoned to his august presence
and were tried for their misdemeanour, punishment or
praise being awarded without favor. Those who produced evidence of having been "initiated" before wpre
of course, exempt from trial.
This  year,  when   Neptune   boards  the  Empress  of
Canada, which leaves New York on a Round the World
cruise on January 30th, his secretary will issue to all thos'
who pass before the God of the Waters, certificates t
that effect, which will be countersigned by Captain '
Robinson, R.N.R., who commands the vessel, and whi
besides being valuable souvenirs of the trip, willexr
the holder from further trial.

I HAD been told to expect a Iran .formation; (hat a
new ordor of things was being born In Southorn
Alberta; that a new system of farming was taking the
place of the old. I was told that the days of "scratching
In" and of "soil mining" were gone days. Nevertheless,
I was not prepared for what I saw.
Fifteen years before, I had travelled throuj-U this
country and had seen only a few scattered farmsteads
set out on the "bald-headed" prairie, four square to all
the winds that blew. There were no trees, only a
stretching expanse of prairie that merged into whlt.--
topped mountains on the west and meeting the sky on
the east In an unbroken horizon. A few homesteaders
were straggling in. Old cattlemen, trying to save their
great range, were spreading stories that farming could
never be a success ln Southern Alberta
But the homesteaders came. Then later She big
fanners arrived with their tractors and ushered In the
era of the thousand acre wheat ranch. A series of "wet
yeara" made Southern Alberta famous. Nowhere had
sur* crops ever previously been hoard of. 'i'he Noble
Foundation, one of the largest farming corporations in
the world, brought in a crop of wheat from one thonsand
acres that threshed 64,000 bushels! Tbe couutry waa
thick with elevators. In 1916 and 1916, Southern Alberta reached the peak of-prosperity A series of unproductive yeare followed when rainfall was scant
Bome farms were abandoned, but, mostly, men held on,
buoyed np hy the wonder harvests of other yeara.
The problem was purely one of moisture, and the
Qorernments of the Dominion and the Province set
about to study It The soil was of the greatest fertility, tke climate waa right Something to supplement

Railway and other corporations had already developed
tracts of laid by Irrigation. It was no experiment, and
so a constructive policy of irrigation was commenced
backed by both Governments.
It is ln the train of irrigation that the new ordei
of things is coining In Southern Alberta. Today as you
drive over the prairie, through the irrigated tracts ol
Strathmore and Brooks, south through the Bow Rtvei
Project and on Into Taber and Lethbridge, the flatness
is broken on all sides by farmsteads that nestle among
trees—young trees growing taller and taller every year.
Hedges are growing where once was barbed wire
Shrubbery is luxuriant. In the background are fields of
Alfalfa, Indian Corn and Wheat. Dairy cows are seen
on green pastures. The farms are small, but they are
real farms, and the homes are smiling homes of contented people. There is no "scratching In" or "soil
mining." These are permanent homes on the threshold
of a future bright with promise.
In the City of Lethbridge, around which moat of the
new Irrigation development ia proceeding, are found
tree-lined streets, beautiful homes set ln hedge enclroeed
lawns, and one of the finest little parka that Canada
can boast. The city has been thoughtfully planned aad
symbolises ln Its setting the spirit of a people pledged
to permanency.
Por those who knew Southern Alberta ln Its infancy,
there ia a pleasant surprise* waiting. Wherever trri-ra-

What is declared to be a world's
record for the transportation of
grain has just been achieved by the
Canadian Pacific Railway. In one
period of 24 hours there were moved
from Winnipeg for the head of the
lakes 1,770 loaded ears. The best
previous record, also held by the
Canadian Pacific Railway, was
' 579 cars, moved east on October
25th, 1921.
A ts-isi-u nearly a mile long and
drawn by a single locomotive recently carried id.,000 bushels of
grain over th. Canadian Pacific

Almost sixteen and a half million
bushels of wheat were exported
from the port of Vancouver during
the period September 1, 1022, to
May 31,4of the present year, according to tiguros issued by the Merchants  Exchange
Among the large number of unaccompanied women on the last

An official in charge of the cattle
shipments from the Port of Montreal recently stated that nearly 40,-

On her last eastward voyage the
Canadian Pacific liner "Empress of
Canada" established a new trans-
Pacific record of 8 daya, 10 hours

been held since 1914 by the "Empress of Russia" of the same line.
If public deposits in banks and
loan companies can be taken as a
fair indication, the Canadian is the

statement made by F. A. Hatch, retiring president of the Ontario division of the Canadian Manufacturers' Association. These deposits |
amount to more than two billion dollars, or $250 per capita.

A distinct type of sbeep, adapted
to prairie range conditions and said
to possess superior wool and sheep
Qualities, has been developed by R,
C. Harvey, an Alberta sheep raiser.
It will be known as the "Romnellet,"
and has been evolved after eight
years' experimenting with crosses of
the Romaey-Marsh with the Ram-
bouillet. As evidence of the wool
production from this species, Mr.
Harvey's annual clip is 120,000
That Canada was gradually becoming more and more of an industrial country, and that Canadians
themselves were not truly aware of
the fact, was the opinion expressed
before the Winnipeg Rotary Club by
Prof. R. C. Wallace, of the University of Manitoba. He stated that
during the past twenty-five years
the population of Canada had increased 80 per cent., the railway
mileage 120 per cent., while the industrial life of the country increased
700 per cent.
