GRAND FORKS, B. C, FRIDAY,   DECEMBER 15 , 1922
Special Correspondence of The Sun,
Victoria, Dec.  14.—Attempts   of
tbe  opposition   to   embarrass   the
government through demanding an
enquiry into the administration of
Pacific Great Erstern  railway have
fallen flat before the public accounts i
committee.   When given the oppor
tuaity   ti   (hive into anything and
everything tbey wished  in  connec
tion with the Pacific Qreat Eastern
accounts, tbe Conservative member
for Rossland, backed by his  leader,
\V.   J.   Bowser,   K.C,   and   E.   H
Pooley,   Ksquimalt,°demanded   the
books of tbe Northern  Construction
company and asked tbat officials  of
tbat concern be subpoenaed. Liberal members of  the committee  said
tbey bad oo objection to culling any
witnesses necessary to clear up any
doubt, bnt until the committee exhausted tbe evidence on band in the
legislative   buildings tbere  was no
need of tbis.   Balked in tbeir plans,
tbe Conservatives beat a retreat, declaring   they   would   bave nothing
further to do with tbe matter.
Verbal bouquets bave  been  pre
sented to Hon.   A. M.  Manson,  attorney-general and minister of labor,
for the way tbe work  of tbe  bouse
bas   been speeded  up tbis session
Tbe bouse   bas not been  beld up
once for want of ready work to consider and all legislation bas been inn
troduced io plenty of time to afford
full consideration by members.   In
tbe past a flood of legislation bds at
times been brought down at   a late
bour, largely through lack of earlier
preparation.   This left the government   open to criticism, tbe claim
being made frequently tbat eleventh-
hour legislation sbould not be introduced, as many of the bills had to
be railroaded through without giv»
ing a cbance to opposition members
(o study them.   The new attorney-
general has corrected this.
Blockade tactics were attempted
in tbe legislature wben the govern*
ment sought the unanimous supn
port of tbe bouse for tbe Manson
resolution asking tbe federal govern
ment to grant British Calumbia the
sole right to import liquor. Last
year tbe Conservatives refused to
discuss tbe beer clause in tbe bouse,
walking out iu a body, but tbey favored tbe securing of government
control of importation. Tbe resolution of a year ago resulted in legis
lation being introduced at Ottawa,
whicb passed tbe bouse of commons
but was defeated in tbe senate. This
year's resolution passed by a ma-
orily of 30 to 14, all members supporting Hou. Mr. Manson with tbe
exception of tbe Canservatives.
Thc attorney-general made a spirited appeal for unanimous support,
pointing out lhat any member wbo
voted   against  tbe  resolution   was
working againat the best Interests of1
the province. He showed   tbat tbe
Conservative party platform of two
years ago included a plank   exactly
blaring  out   wbat the government
now   wishes  to do.    Tbe minister
maintained tbat government   con
trol aud private   importation   were
contemporaneously impossib'e   aud
unless bootlegging  was to  flourish
importation must be controlled by
tbe government.
As   predicted   by   The 8uu two
weeks   ago,  the  Burde eight-hour
oil!   was defeated in the legislature
when a vote was taken.   However,
the issue was   a close   one, twenty-
two members opposing the present
piwiog of 'he bill,   while  eighteen
oast their votes for it.   Many mem-
bers declared tbey were in favor  of
the principle but did not wish to see
industry stifled in British Columbia
at tbis time through the passing of
restrictive    legislation,    when   the
competition between the province
and the neighboringstatesand provinces would be such  as to cripple
local industry.    Premier Oliver   as-
sesied tbat in   this young province
U was absolutely necessity that production be kept at a high level.   In
time  it might be expedient to cut
down the hours of work in certain
industries, but that   time   was   not
the  present    Indications   are  tbat
next year there may be a different
story, as several of   those  who opposed   the  pa-siug of the bill this
year have   stated  that they would
oot withhold their support next session.

I can guess as wnll as you."

o'clock on Monday evening of cancer, after a long and painful illness.
He is survived by his wife and two

arriving here from Keremeos a few
days before hie brother passed away.

among tne first settlers in tbe valley
For a number of years tbey were

Victoria, Dec.   11 —A syndicate
of Americans is said to be negotiating witb tbe provincial government
for tbe purchase of tbe Pacific Great
Eastern  railway.   Their terms are
believed to include land grants and
other privileges an a fairly extensive
scale, according to a Vancouver Sun
staff correspondent.   The  ministers
decline to  make   any statement on
tbe matter, although Premier Oliver
bas more than once stated tbat any
reasonable offer would be welcomed.
The  scheme   of   the    syodicate
whicb bas approached   tbe government is believed to be based on   tbe
program carried out  by  tbe late J.
J.   Hill   io   building  up tbe Qreat
Nortbern railway  witb  tbe assistance  and   cooperation of tbe late
Lord Strathcona    That is to exert
every energy to colonize the country
tributary to the   line.    Old timers
state tbat   when J. J. Hill put bis
genius behind   tbe Great  Northern
it was in apparently quite as hopeless a condition as critics of tbe Pacific Great Eastern railway  depiot.
It is probable that the government
will be asked questions on tbe floor
of tbe bouse witbiu tbe next day or
two in regard to tbe pr iposed deal.

pointed:    Frank  Miller,  A.  G.  C. j
Mason,   A.   Baker,   J.   Berry,  J.
Aabley and G. Mattocks,
Medicine Hat, Alberta—An expenditure of about $60,000 is represented by the extension to the
Canadian Pacific Railway roundhouse and the construction of the
Company's mechanical coaling plant,
and that sum is about equally divided between these two improvements. In both instances the work
hii : given much employment to local
nicii and there is still a considerable amount of inside work to be
done in connection with the extension to the roundhouse.
_ Renfrew, Ontario—Mr. Ed. Williams, Canadian Pacific Railway
baggage master, who in addition to
his regu'at- duties, takes care of the
flower garden which attracts so
much favorable comment from travellers over the line, has secured another triumph— Mr. Williams has
just been notified that his plot has
been awarded second prize in the
Quebec district, all of the depot gardens having been recently judged by
an official of the road. Dui ing the
past few years Mr. Williams has
Carried off a number of first prizes
but the competition is growing keener year by year.
St. Thomas, Ontario—Work has
been commenced on the construction
of an extension to the pn si nt C.P.R.
yards east of the city, in the form
of an 800-foot repair track at an expenditure of approximately $16,000,
The grading work which" is being
done by Irwin and Son of this city,
was started recently. The extension
is necessary to cope with the increased business and als.i to facilitate the repairing of cars. It is
also understo >d that the addition of
the nev.' tracks will result in several more employees being added to
the C.P.K. repair ;.mig.
A small track abuut 80 feet long
will also be erected alongside the
new tracks to bo used in case of an
emergency. The new I ack will hold
at least forty cars. Four teams and
about twenty men are engaged in
rushing this work tu completion.
Belfast, Ireland—For tha first
time on record a Canadian-bound
steamer sailed from Belfast Lough
conveying mails direct from the
Northern capital. The vessel was
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company's S.S. "Metagama," which, incidentally, was built in Belfast. The
vessel anchored off Kiln.nl, and 2,'l
bags of mail, together with some
100 emigru U from Ulster, wore
conveyed to it by Lhe Harbor Commissioners' tug "Musgi-ave."
Hitherto it had been Iln practice
to send the mails to Liverpool and
other ports, from .vhici, they Mere

Office in London, the pn sent system was int.n duci d.
One of the passi ngera was a five-

The beer and light wine question jumped
up in the house at Victoria this week and enlivened !jhe proceedings for a few hours, but
it seems to have subsided as quickly as it appeared on the scene. It is hoped that is the
last that will be heard of it, There is no necessity for the inclusion of a clause in the
present laws making it easier for the people
to obtain beer and light wines. They can get
all they need to drink now at the liquor sjores,
where these beverages, or intoxicants, can be
kept under control. The adoption of the
clause Advocated by the beer and-wine men
would uieaL that a lot of mushroom dating
"dumps,"—where the ratio of food anl beer
served would be 5 cents to $5 in favor of beer—
would spring up all over the province. The
people do not want such a condition. Their
last verdict, as expressed at the polls, was for
moderation, not a wide-open liquor policy.
There has grown up a tradition in the mo
tion picture field—a tradition that bars re
ligious pictures. Think of such a tradition, of
such   a principle,  in an  industry to  which
twenty million people  a week  pay tribute!
There are over forty million registered  members of various churches in the United States
and all of them Christian witli the exception
of the Jewish synagogues—1357,000 One. would
imagine that with a specific audience of forty
million church members a picture with  a   religious theme might be worth while even con
sidered as a business move. On the contrary^
religious picture—one with a religious  theme
—is taboo. "Not interested in a picture  with
a   religious   subject," says one  big motion-
picture producer. "No need to talk about the
the subject; we don't want it," says another.
"The public don't want a religious picture,"
explains a third—all leading producing organ
izations—"or with a religious theme." "Don't
you think an audience of forty million people
—all members of Christian churches—might
be interestad?" was asked.    "They come  to
our theaters anyway—we don't need to make
a picture for them," was the answer.   Is that
the answer?
any happier for being unspanked? Please observe that I do not support spanking qua
spanking. I merely ask, are wives happier
than they were when spanking was considered
respectable, homely, and decent?
Personally, I do not believe they are. It is
a horrible admission to make; but an indigenous honesty wrings it from me. Neurasthenia
among married wr:nien is alarmingly prevalent,
Hysterical symptoms are on the increase. In
short we have developed "tantrums."
"Tantrums'' are an unpleasant affliction:
Nobody having tantrums can be happy. That
is where the husband's responsibility comes in.
Didn't he promise to cherish her in tantrums
and in health? I consider it his positive duty
to put his toot down firmly on a tantrum
whenever it threatens to disturb his poor
wife's native serenity.
Oh! if husbands  would  only   realize   how
much happier we should be if on the  first ap
pearance of a tantrum they would quite kindly
and tenderly throw the furniture a. our heads!

The average wholesale prices of thirty-two
leading staple food  commodities during  the
month of November show an increase as com
pared wilh the general average during October
of .323 per ceut, or about one third of 1   per
cent, according to the Canadian Grocer.    The
outstanding feature in the markets during the
month of November was the steady  increase
in the price of flour, which showed an advance
of from  10c to 20c  every  week during the
month, the average price on  Manitoba hard
wheat flour being $7.05 per barrel, as against
the average of $6.75 for October. Cereals also
inclined upward, particularly rolled oats and
cornmeal, the average price of the former  being 15cper bag and on the latter 27£cper big
higher   than the average   price in Octol"
Eggs and butter were higher by 2c per poun
while cheese increased 4c per pounds.    Tlte
comparison of prices shows as well declines if
a few cents per dozen on canned tomatoes,
corn and peaches, while a shade reduction is
noted in shelied almonds, walnnts and rice.
OPPORTUNITIES   FOR   INGENUITY
AND INITIATIVE IN RAILROAD OPERATION
There are today new opportunities for ingenuity and initiative in the operation of the
railways in this country,
The present difficulties in rail wuy service const tute only a temporary emergency condition.
While standardization of wages, agreement tm
working couditions and the decisions of the
labor board have restricted the initiative ofthe
railroads, there still is opportunities to find
new ways to make progress.
Railroad managements, while concentratiug
tlieir attention iargely upon efficiency in the
movement of traius, have not given sufficient
attention to the efficiency of labor 'employed
iu terminals and in the maintenance of trackage and equipment.
It is in the terminal and maintenance work
that the'increased labor c ist proves most burdensome. The belief can not be avoided that
great opportunities still exist for importa I improvements in the use ol' terminal Labor and nl'
maintenance labor.
. But thore remains an even greater field for
effort and initiative, which, in the opinion of
many railway men, never has been worked by
railroad managements as it ought to have beeu,
rand as it must°be£in the future; and that is the
field of the relationship between the management and the employees. At the present
time we believe many railway managements
are giving serious attention to this great
problem.
It is believed that a serious desire to promote the welfare of employees and a settled
policy to obtain throngh regular conferences
the views of the employees as to what their
welfare requires and to explain to the employees tha necessities of the management will
have a progressively beneficial effect upon the
efficiency of railroad labor.

Not for Ducks
An English rider, coming
to a river that he was unfamiliar with, asked a young
ster who was playing on the
bank whether lhe water was
deep. "No," replied the boy,
and the rider started to cross.
But he soon found that he and
his   horse   had   to  swim for
their lives.
When he finally reached the
other side he turned and
shouted to the boy:''I thought
you said it wasn't deep."
"It aren't," was the reply.
"It only takes grandfather's
ducks up to their middles."
The man   who keeps  hie  word
dops not make glib promises.
But Not in Spelling
Punch quotes this extract
from a letter that a nine year-
old boy wrote toward the end
of his first term at a preparatory school: "I feale I have
lernt a lot sence I caime
hear."        	
It is 8nmetimae difficult to tell
who sacrificed at a sacrifice sale.
Don't be among those fools
who use all the first part of
their lives to make the latter
part miserable.
There are many things that
we think we believe merely
because we say them.
Furnnces  are like   husbands.   If
you don't watch them they t»o out.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently ob'
taiued, aro: "I'o provide a Hoiuj mid Rafugo for Baby aud Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the nauy of suoh unfortunates, who, for tho lack of sucb aer«
vice, perish every yoar; aud to return theso little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with n irraal, healthy bodies aud sound minds."
This is a large aud greatly needed Child Wolfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices iu tho various provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presaut time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been douo for those helpless little ones. In tbe United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in Now Vork City; they have uow homos
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. Iu England, some tiuu* ago, Sir Ar
ihur Poarsou organized "Sunshiue House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies.
and ho claims th.it it is tho ouly oue iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND iu Canada. To reach this worthy ond money is urgently required
Fifty Thousand Dollara is the present objective of tbe 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 ba made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged
