Government Drops Its
Gross Appeal und Will
Ottawa,May 20—The state
menf was officially made in
the house of commons today
that the Mutual Brokers had
dropped their appeal agaiust
the unfavorable verdicts given
in the Nasb cases at Vancouver when four companies and
four officers of the Nasli c n
cern were fined -?25,000 each,
with one day in jail.
The government hns, therefore, dropped its cross-appeal.
The original verdict will stand
It is understood that no further indictments will bc proceeded witb.
Crop prospects were never more
promising than, tbey are today
declares E. C. Brown, fruit :ancb
owner of tbe Kelowna district, who
bas just completed a tour of the
Okanagan valley.
"Trees arc from sixteen days to
tbree weeks in advance of the calendar," said Mr. Brown. "Apples
•re beaded up splendidly and are
staying on tbe trees. '
"Tbere bas been no winter dam
age, the past nix months beiog exceptionally mild.
"Tbe crop will not be eo large as
that of 1921, wben a bigb record
was reached. Many orchards have
gone uoatt"nded since that time
and frosts io the winter of 1924-25
damaged many trees."
Throughout the province aod par*
ticularly'in the Fraser valley growers
of small fruits report exceptionally
heavy yields as a certainty. Fifty
per cent increase in tbe small fruits
crops in British Columbia over last
year is predicted in some quarters,
although that is merely a guess.
Picking will begin early in June
and sbould be at its height by June
10 or 16.

Victoria.May 7Q — When Premfer
Oliver returned from Ottawa the
other day be authorized tbe publication nf tbe order io council wbicb
sets out tbis province's case for tbe
return to provincial control of lands
banded over to the Dominion as
part of British Colombia's contribun
tion towards the bringiog together
of Canada witb a line of ste I. The|
gist of tbe official document may be
summarized as follows:
Tbe order in council recalls the
fact that British Columbia entered
confederation, known to history as
the terms of union. Ooe of these,
and a very important ooe io tbe
eyes oi the people sf the province
when the terms were settled by the
legislature, was the construction of a
line of railway to cohnect eatt and
west. It was agreed to convey to
the Dominion, to be appropriattd as
it thought beet in aid of building
tbis line, such area f land as would
equal any appropriation made by
the Dominion from public lands io
tbe Northwest territories and Mani
toba, this area to be in the shape of
a belt along the line of tb: proposed
railway, but not to exceed twenty
miles pn each side of it.
It is argued thatat the time of
negotiating tbese terms it was tbe
avosved policy of tbe federal government to aid railway construction by
large subsidies of land but small
grant's of money; tbat government
oot desiring "to burden the exchequer much to obtain tbis railway." but tbat as a matter of faet
tbe result was attained by tbe ex.
penditure of approximately $63..
0o0,000 of public mnds in surveys
and construction and tbe appropriation of less tban one-balf of tbe area
of land wbich the Dominion had
declared ae its polfcy. >
Union having been effected by
imperial legislation wbich could Dot
be varied by any Canadian statute,
and subject to certain conditions, it
follows tbat public lands of British
Columbia vastly in excess of what
was required by the terms of union
have been conveyed to tbe Dominion through a misunderstanding or
misinterpretation of these terms, to
an extent of something like 9,u00,-
000 acres. Although it was intended
that public lands of Ontario, Manitoba, British Columbia and the
Northwest territories should be ap
propriated in furtherance of railway
'•'instruction only lands in tbe territories bave been so appropriated
and used, and the lands conveyed
by thie province do not appear to
have been used io aid of ibe project.
Therefore tbe claim of British
Columbia is, lhat as the public
imnies spent and the public lands
appropriated were the propeity cf
thu whole people of Canada, including British Columbia, and ae no
otlier province was required to or
did contribute "ltuer money or land
to build.tbe railway,and as the basis
upon wbicb tbe terms of union were
agreed to has beeu swept away o
materially changed, it appears to.be
ooly^ust and right( that this province should be placed upon an
equality with tbe other provinces in
respect to the oooelruotiou of the
Canadian Pacific railway by having
tbe lands mistakenly conveyed to
tbe Dominioo restored to tbis prov
ince. The federil goverumeot is
asked to take the necessary steps to;
carry out this request.

A. at. Jonnson, President of the
.Canadian Club of Boston, visited
Montreal for the first time on the
new "Redwing" train.now running
between "the two cities on Canadian
Pacific lines. In telling of the
charitable and naturalization aid
given Canadians by the Canadian
Club of Boston, Mr. Johnson said
there were some 900,000 Canadians
in the State of Massachusetts. Of
this number 80,000 are in Boston.
Sir Esme Howard, British Ambassador to the United States, stated
on his arrival in Toronto on a C.P.R.
train that the question of European
peace was the most urgent and immediate problem of the day. It was
necessary for Great Britain to assist
in maintaining peace and tho Leagu'a
of Nations offered a suitable vehicle.
Sir Esme claimed that if the League
disappeared England would be compelled to join some European combination against any country which
threatened to dominate the continent.
Net earnings of the Canadian Pacific Railway for March wore %-,-
824,177, an increase of $706,965 over
the same period last year, and thc
best March net since 1918. For the
three months ending March 31 net
earnings were 86,631,067, an increase
of $2,675,385 over the corresponding period of last year and the best
Showing for thc three months since
1017. Gross earnings for March
Were up $1,330,271, while expenses
increased only $623,306.
The development of tourist traffic
to the Dominion hns been one of the
most noteworthy events of the Canadian economic situation in thc postwar period. Holiday makers of thc
United States apparently find Canada's vacation charm irresistible as
the number of visitors shows large
increases every year. In 1925 .,-
429,144 United Stales' automobiles
entered Canada for touring purposes, as compared with 1,889,210
In 1924. A new record is expected
this season.
Speaking at thc Canadian Daily
Newspaper Association meeting at
Toronto recently, E, W. Boatty,
President of the C.P.R. said thero
is no class of worker more closely
in touch with, or more soundly informed of, the problems of the country's industrial life than tho railway
and newspaper workers. Each was
building up the country as he served
the actual needs of tho community.
Mr. Beatty was impressed by the
universal willingness of the Canadian press to get behind aopeals
that must be made to the public on
behalf of works ol' charity, civic
benefit and education.

Dr.  Chen  is  known as ephedrine and is the
active priuciple of a lowly herb.    "The plaut
has long been used by the Chinese as a treatment asthma," said Dr. Chen in an interview.
"It   is characterized  by the sweating which
follows its use.    Used  in   asthma, ephedrine
forces the muscles to relax around   the   air
passages in the lungs.    The effective area of
the lungs is thereby increased  and breathing
becomes easier. Its use in a head  cold  is to
close  the ducts of the secreting glands, thus
relieving the condition known as a running

Poems From Eastern Lands
On the Death of a Son
Tyrant of manl    Imperious Fate!
1 bow before thy dread decree,
Nor hope in this uncertain state
To find u seat secure from thee.
Life is a dark tumultuous stream,
With many a care aod sorrow foul,
Yet thoughtless mortals vainly deem
That it can yield a limpid bowl.
Think not that stream will backward flow.
Or cease its destiu'd eoursu to keep;
As soou the blazing spark shall glow
Beneath the surface of the deep.
Believe not Fate at thy command
Will grant a meed she uever gave;
As soon the airy tower shall stand.
That's built upon a passing wave.
Life is a sleep of tBreescore years,
Death bids us wake and hail the ligbt,
And man, with all his hopes and fears,
Is but a phantom of tho uight.
—Aly Ben Mohammed Altahmany.

In India alone last year it is reported that
3fi05 persons were killed by wild animals and
20,000 died from snake bites. Tigers accounted for 1093 deaths, wolves for 835,

of 213. The wild pigs killed more than 100;
bears and elephants about 70. During the year
about 23,900 wild animals were killed, so that
tha ratio f human to wild animal deaths in
the juugle is only about one in six.

Electro-plating a Canadian Railway Operation
rbotof»pha  shoninc eleotro-iisistlng  opens lions at the Angus Shops, Montreal.    No. 1 shows the, tanks la which nsll articles are hung for plutlni, anil M*. ( I
ing process,     lhe text below explains the other photograph* tt-ty.
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 tho travelling public appreciate the extent to which
electro-plating enters into every day use on a Railway. As a matter of
fact, practically all metal hardware pp.ria of passenger equipment Interiors are plated, many of the engine parts. Including the copper reflector of the head-light are plated, and vaiious platings are uses*1, on a
thousand and one articles which enter dally Into the life of a railroader.
The traveller notices the silver plate, perhaps jnore than any other,
but many metals are used hy the railroad companies. Cold, for instance, ls used' by the Canadian Pacific tor plating pepper caster tops
and similar articles, copper is used on lighting und other metal car fixtures, zinc on refrigerator hardware, nickel on kitchen utensils, tin 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
bas quite an extensive plant where tho most of its electro-plating is car-
tied on. The method used by this Company lis a simple one but none the
len effective.
The articles to be plated are first chemically cleaned, after which
they are usually hung from a metal bar into a long vat where they are
Immersed In a chemical solution which varies wi'ii ihe metal to be deposited. The electric current, which is of low voltage, is connected, the
MMlttve pole to the metal plate or plates, and the negative to the bar
tin Whicli the articles to be plated are suspended.   As the electric cur
rent flows from the plating metal to tbe suspended articles!, the metal la
carried through the solution and deposited in the form of a thin coating
over the entire surface of the required article.
This process ls well illustrated in No. 2, which shows two eXectrlo
headlight reflectors in the process of receiving silver plating. In -thle
case the plate of silver Is suspended in the centre of tbe reflector, which
is filled Vith cyanide of potassium solution, and the electric current flows
from the plate to tne reflector which ls, itself, the negative pole.
Illustration No. 3 chows the next step In the treatment of the heed-
light reflector, which, by the way, gives the highest concentration of light
known. This ls hand burnishing, the operator burnishing two reflectors
In a working day. For articles which can be readily polished by a
rotating buffing wheel, this is accomplished ln the manner shown ln 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 gus,
sprayed with suitable lacquer. If it ls desired to oxidise the plated
article in order to make it harmonize with woodwork or other material,
as is often tho case with copper platings, it is exposed to heat or vapor,
or immersed in some solution prior to the application of the *ln4«iving
coat of lacquer.
The Canadian Pacific Railway Company was the first large corporation In Canada to instal its own electro-plating plant, but during the laet
few years< this method of protecting metal from oxidation has developed
into quite an Industry and one which employs a large number et Csi-ttMM
workmen. '"
Windermere Prize Spuds Are Famous

Pir over forty years the Windermere district of British
Columbia has been famous for the quality of the
potatoes produced there, Back in 18S4 the late Francis
Patrick Armstrong of Sorcl, Quebec, one of the younger
ions of Chief Justice James Armstrong who had wandered
Oilt into the mountains with thc cons! ruction of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, was busy raising potatoes on
'lis ranch on the eastern shore of the Columbia Lake.
Je did this from seed which he had brought from the
tobacco plains of Montana.
Near the centre cf tho Windermere district, Columbia
Lake forms one of the main sources of the Columbia
River. On his isolated ranch, Armstrong rais'd his
famous spuds and in boats rnatje from whipsawn lumber
took them to the construction camps of the Canadian
Padfle Railway one hundred and fifty miles down the
Columbia river. His wholesome product became so well
known that his ranch lost the name "Plains of the
Nativity," given it in 1845 by the Reverend Father
Pierre de Smet, and became known as the Armstrong
Ranch. .'"'",
Later Armstrong took up steamer navigation and
ethers took his place as growers of the potato, among
them Rufus Ashton Kinpton. Robert Randolph Bruce,
BOW lieutenant governor of thn province "of British
Columbia, was nother of the early big producers. He
told his crops at the mine i.
Interest in the growth of potatoes in the Windermere
district never waned but the growers in tlie district did
Hot really waken up to the possibilities of widely commercializing their fine potatoes until the first important
provincial potato show held in Grand Forks, B.C. in
1922. After winning many prizes, more care was taken
in the growth of the plants and thn study of varieties
until it was decided that the netted gents, Cambridge
Russets, and Wee McGregors were the varieties best
suited for the district.
The Windermere District Potato Growers Association
■wept the boards at each succeeding potato sho-v with
these two grades. On two of the three succeeding
occasions, including the 1925 show, they wen the Farmers
Institutes Advisory Board's Cup, given as an annual
trophy to the district within the province making the

potatoes with which ho won the award.
best display of eight lots of seed potatoes' of not less than
thirty-two in each lot, each lot being the product of a
different grower.
In 1923 and again in 1924 the Murray Shield given
by Country Life, of B.C. for the best exhibit of certified
seed was carried back amid rejoicing to Invermere.
Prizes have also heen won at different yeara in the
International Potato Show at Spokane, Washington.
At New Westminster, B.C. in 1925 Arthur J. Walker,
of Ajax Ranch, Invermere, scored 99.2 points as his contribution to the display in which the Windermere district
scored 785.1 out of 800 points. In addition to winning
the Farmers Institutes Advisory Board's Cup at the show
the members of the Windermere association woo seventeen firat prizes and twenty-three other awards.
When Lord and Lady Allenby
were in Vancouver recently, a group
of women whose husbands and
sweethearts had been cared for by
Lady Allenby during the war days
in Cairo, thanked the "Lady of
Mercy" for her care and attention.
These husbands and sweethearts are
now happily settled in the sunny
Okanagan Valley of British Columbia and have banded in a unique organization known as the Jaffa Gate,
every member having passed
through the Jaffa Gato into Jerusalem.
According to figures for 1925 the
growth of interest in First Aid effl'
ciency is attested by the fact that
1,698 men and women were successfully examined on the whole Canadian Pacific system during the
year. In all, approximately 25,000
Canadian Pacific Railway employees are now holders of First Aid
certificates, while a large proportion have vouchers, medallions and
labels indicating that they are far
above the certificate standard, severe as that test of knowledge is.
R. E. Larmour, general freight
agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway, has announced that westbound
lake and rail freight from eastern
points will be accepted for shipment
on the Great Lakes, subject to delay
by reason of ice conditions, by April |

for package freight, both east and
west bound, is considered to be as
good as last year when returns from
th:s source were about equal to thost
from the carriage of grain.
