Victorii, Msy 6.—Details of the
financial progress of British Columbia dty*tng>the lar>t decade have tust
been 'marlb pujjftr* here. Theen
sbow, in brief, that for every >100
in bond the province sold io tbe
financial market ten years ago it
only reci-ived 136.20 in cash, while
ever since 1919 provincial credit haB
improved to sucb an extent that the
aierage value received in cash for
the Bame $100 bood works out at
$98 10.
Other statistics included io the
Statement show that in 1916 current obligations unpaid amounted
to $2,000,000, that accrued obliga.
tions unpaid amounted to a similar
sum, that Pacific Great Eastern
bonds were guaranteed to the extent
of 8-\0(>0,000 and no sinking fund
had been provided, tbat Canadian
Northern railway bonds also had
been guaranteed to tbe extent of
$48,000,000, tbat there was a shortage in sinking funds of no less a sum
tban $628,000.
It is also a fact tbat a civil service
salary list at tbat time absorbed
something like 28 per cent of the
revenue of the province, tbat an an.
ticipated deficit  of $5,400,000 on
in full, and all its accruing obligations are satisfactorily provided for.
The sinking funds also are all paid
up to dite, and there is a surplus of
$1,100,000   in  tbat   particular ac
A further evidence of tbe progress
made hy tbe province in thelastl
decide is similarly ehown in tbe
following statisticee: School popu.
lation has increased 65 per cent;
agricultural production has doubled
and mining production increased 43
per cent; timber production has increased 130 per cent; pulp aad
paper output has increased 80 pel
cent, and lbe industrial payroll has
increased 25 per cent in tbe last
tbree years.

CANADIANS are fortunate in
their National Parks, in that
they have within their borders .Mpihe scenery which is not
equalled anywhere on the continent, and more and more they are
realizing that holidays in Canada
hold for the lover of out-of-doors
all the thrills that could be found
anywhere in the world. Jasper
National Park in the Canadian
Rockies, contains many high peaks,
eternally snowcapped, and on the
sides of the mountains are glaciers
which have stood the test of ages.
Millions of tons of ice, stretching in
some instances, almost bb far as the
•ye can see, lure tU adwatawa
climber to new attempts, while in
the calm, peaceful valleys wild
game of all kinds live at peace with
mankind and the world.
Additional bungalows for the accommodation of guests are to be
erected at Jasper Park Lodge, the
log-cabin hostelry of the Canadian
National Railways at Jasper National Park, in time for the opening of the 1924 season, it is announced by officials of the Hotel
Department, Canadian National
Railways. During last season the
popularity of Jasper National Park
was so great that the capacity of
Jasper Park Lodge was taxed, and
*-s addlttMal •biagalmra  being
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each
room with bath, and two 12-room
bungalows, each room also having
private bath, are being erected. In
addition, a double-deck boathouse,
with the upper floor for conventions, and dancing, ls being constructed, and an octagonal curio
building is being built near the
main Lodge. Four new buildings
are being erected to serve as employees' quarters, the kitchens are
being extended and "the main
lounge is being extended to provide
for • ladies' reception room and for

An Aerial Map of
Red Lake District
The latest product of aerial pbo«
tograpby combined witb ground
surveys is a map of the Red Lake
district, in northwestern Ontario, in
wbich so much prospecting is being
done at present. By tbe use of this
method, carried on by the topographical survey, department of the
interior, Ottawa, in cooperation
with tbe Royal Canadiaa air -force,
a wealth of detail bss been collected, comprising |akes, riverc,
portagf-s, falls and similar informs*
tion, wbich would have required an
immense amount of effort lo obtain
by ground surveys alone.
The map has been   published  oi
the scale of one  inch  to  two miles
and covers an area sbiut forty miles
by sixty miles  in  extent,  spproxi
mutely   centered   at     Red     Lake.
Whereas  prospecting has up to tbe
present been confined lo areas close
to Red Lake itself, it is  anticipated
that  with tbe aid of tbe map as a
guide, the extension of these activities) over broaderareas will be greatly
facilitated.    As an indication of ih
maze of wnt-rways in the district it
may   be stated that something like
7U0   lake-   are shown      Indeed,   so
many Ukcn mid oth.r features  bave

An interesting record for long distance
radio reception on a moving traiu was established recently when the Continental Limited,
the transcontinental express of the Canadian
National railways, picked up and held for
thirty minutes a broadcast from Vera Cruz,
Mexico, just as the train was leaving Holden,
Alberta, enroute io Vancouver.
(jjThe robin has lived so long in the company
of man that you will seldom tind it far from a
human dwelling. In the suburbs of towns
one pair of birds will havo three or four gardens which they look;upon as their own preserve, and if another robin attempts to enter
their domain a tight takes place. The stranger
is often driven away, but sometimes the new
comer is victori us, and then the first pair
have to seek fresh grouuds,
allow their sons to marry girls under this
cloud. A number of this year's unlucky girls
have taken up professional work, in the belief
that they *ere doomed to remain siugle. To
combat the superstition efforts are being made
by a society organized in Tokyo to help its
members select their wives and husbands without parental help or interference. In the past,
thousands of girls, fearing a lifetime of loneliness, have committed suicide.
Despite her eighty-six years there is no
more edthusiastic lover of outdoor sports than
Mrs. Olive Tobey of Eliot, Maine, and it is
not an unaommon sight to see her and her
daughter and granddaughter coasting on a
double-runner bob sled. Mrs. Tobey apparently gets more enjoyment out of this than do
the younger members of the group.
Play is work that we do voluntarily.
It is 112 years since death of Dr. Ignatius
Joseph Guillotine, who invented the instrument for beheading pe sons at one strike,
causing instant and painless death. It whs
adopted by the French assembly in 1702, and
within a month set up. The lirst person executed by it was a highway robber named Pel-
letier. The first political victim was Dangie-
mont, who was executed in August, 1792.
An increase of more than 145 per cent in
immigration over Canadian National railway
lines into western Canada up to the , nd of
April over the same period of last year is an
nounced by colonization officials of the National railways. An even more striking comparison is that of he Canadian National's
farm employment service statistics. From
the beginning of the year up to date the
company h.is ■ laced in farm work more newcomers than during the entire season of either
1925 or 1924, and 4000 more than had been
placed up to the end of April last year.

Air traffic is becoming so common in Europe
that it is possible for the curious to ascertain
definite facts about the volume of air travel.
The British -Imperial Airways in the year
from April, 1924, to Apjil, 1925, made 6750
flights, covered 1,335,512 miles, carried 18,724
passengers and delivered 1008 tons of freight.

A man complained at his club about the

But a broker slapped him on the shoulder and
said: 'Cheer up, brother. You musu't go en
like this because, you've dropped a plunk or

and I'll give you a few pointers." "It isn't
pointers I'm after," said the loser. "It's re

Government statistics show that
the average wages per month paid
to farm helpers in the summer ot
1925 over the whole of Canada wae
$40 for men and $22 for women.
The value of board received wa*
reckoned at $23 for men and $19

O Mope! thou fleeting pleasure of the mind,
Forever with us stay; our hearts to bind!
We cling to thee till life has fled away;
Our dearest phantom, ever with us stay!
Without thee, we have nanght but dread depair,
The worst of all our torments with us here;
Oh, come with thy soft pinions, o'er us shine!
And we will worship thee, a god divine,
The ignis fatuus of all our skies
That granflty leads us, vanishes and dies,
And we are left to grope in darkness here,
Without a ray of light our lives to cheer.
Oh, stay I sweet Love's companion, ever stay!
And let us hope with love npon our wayl
We reck not if a phantom thou has been,
And we repent that we have ever seen
Thy light on earth to lead us far astray;
Forever stay I or ever keep away!

Bees Set out to Make a Record
Lady Byng Inspired by Rockies
Who ever heard ul a hive ol lux. that in one day
gathered no less than 25 pounds of honey? If anyone
doubts that the busy bee can be as busy as all that, refer
him to Mr. W. D. Wright who has a large and prosperous
apiary near Souris, which is in southern Manitoba on the
Canadian Pacific Railway, and if anybody doubts the
fertility of the Province of Manitoba or wonders if the
summer suns there shine down on wide fields of glorious
bloom, let him read the following which is gathered from
the columns of the "Souris Plaindealer."
It was on July 31st last that the hive of bees beside
Which Mr. Wright stands in the above picture gathered
and stored the twenty-five pounds and established a
record -for this continent and perhaps for the whole
world. There was no doubt about its being true, because
the Provincial Department of Agriculture made the test.
From July 13 to August 3, the hive stood on a scale and
every evening when the bees' work was done and they had
gathered around their fireside to talk it over, the weight
•Jif the hive was taken. The first gain was on July 14
When 114 pounds was brought in and from that quantity
the daily take varied up to 14 and 16 pounds. But on
July 31 the bees got together and made a special effort
just to show what they could do in the way of establishing
Perhaps they had just discovered that their efforts
were being recorded. Anyway we can imagine that the
night before, the queen called the crowd together, or
perhaps only the captains of teams, and said something
Uke this:—
"Now, boys, the world's got its eye on you and tomorrow's the day we go over the top. Any lad that comes
in here with less than his full load gets into trouble and
the chap or team bringing in the biggest bag gets a wax
medal with my picture on one side and his own name on
the other."
And how they worked that day! They worked all the
other days of the season too, because the total honey
produced for the season was 406 V. pounds. Of course
there were two or three rainy days when they Btayed
at home and did chores around the hive, and two or three
other days when it didn't rain, but they stayed homo
anyway to look after the local elections or something like
that. And when it was all over no doubt the queen said
"Well, it's been a pretty good working season, I'll tell the
world," and as always is the case the Queen was right.
Having proved her superiority as an organizer etc.,
it was natural that wider spheres of endeavour should
call to this queen, so Mr. Wright shipped her to a big
Bee firm in Alabama who are sending him another queen
now, ten of her daughters next spring and three two-
pound packages of bees with three more of her daughters
in command. The trade was worth $35 to the Floradale
Apiaries. The locating, capturing and caging ready for
exportation of the Wright queen'was witnessed by J. W.
Breakey, M.L.A., and a representative of the Plain-
dealer. She was indeed a very fine lady and was head of
an enormous population that objected pretty strenuously
to her removal, and you cannot really blame them for
Mr. Wright's Floradale Apiaries this year produced
almost four tons of honey and he hopes that next year
Southern Manitoba and the neighborhood of Souris
in particular will again show the world something startling in the way of honey production. In the meantime
our friend the queen will continue her campaign for a
bigger and better honey crop.
Lord Bynt ttolflna on the famous
— Banfl course
No one has any right to speak with
authority of Canada who has
seen only the East or the West."
It was Her Excellency the Lady
Byng of Vimy who made this statement recently at a luncheon of the
Ottawa Women's Canadian Club
shortly after her return frorn a trip
across and through Canada over a
matter of some eighty thousand
mileB. Accompanying His Excellency
the Governor General, Lady Byng
had visited practically all parts of
Canada meeting at every stopping
place the warm welcome Canadians
everywhere reserve for "Byng of
Vimy" and his charming Lady and,
not less important, becoming acquainted with Canada's unrivalled
and never-ending succession of scenic
"I feel I have some plea to came to
speak to you on Canada", saitl Her
Excellency. "I come as a sort of advertising agent to bog of you that
you go west and visit there. I know
«*a terrible Question of exnense but
let me tell you, it is well worth it.
I do so regret that people will go to
the South of France or some seaside
resort, rather than view the beauties
of their own Canadia.i Rockies and of
Vancouver Island."
Lady Byng described her first view
of the Rockies. "It was bo great an
inspiration. I cannot convey the
beauty and wonder of that undulating
line rising out of the mist; that endless, unending chain of marvellous
mountains and the valleys below in
colours of acquamarlne and emeralds."
The opinion of Her Excellency
regarding Western Canada is not that
of a mere passerby. With the Governor-General she has been all over
the country, going by motor where
the rail and river do not penetrate.
"There are those," said Lady Byng,
"who visit Canada landing at Quebec,
com,ng on to Montreal, proceeding to
Ottawa, and Toronto, who have gone
away giving their view on Canada.
Such views are always defective even
if sometimes they are not wholly
unfair and unjust. Canada's bigness
is evident on the map, but its actual
Bize is only realized through direct
contact and acquaintanceship."
The iaea of interchanging visits
east and west ia developing the
attitude ro admirably taken by the
wiio of the Governor-General fhould
speed the movement and give it
wider impetus,
In our Dominion different localities
have different interests and problem*,
and nothing but a close and sym-
Hcr Excellency, Lady Byng
pathetic study of cause and effect will
solve the difficulties which confront
the country as a whole. Books and
newspapers assist somewhat in bringing into closer touch the eastern,
central and western regions of the
Dominion. But not until the people
living east visit the west and the
people in the west visit the older
provinces — visit them with the
intention of becoming acquainted
with the life and ideals of the native
born, will any degree of intimacy or
understanding be reached.
The lesson of Lady Byng's speech,
then, is for Canadians, when they go
travelling en holiday, to extend their
knowledge of the structure and
economic life ol the people in other
parts of the country than their own
and to sec for themselves the beauty
of Canadian scenery which travellers
from other lands say is unexcelled the
world over and of w'-ich every
province has its full share — see
Canada first, and see it from Halifax
to Victoria.  . THE SUN:

ANOTHER railroad milestone
of Western Canada was
passed on April 20, when the
first engine ever constructed in
_this part of the Dominion was
turned out of the Canadian National Railways Transcona Shops
at Winnipeg, where it was built.
Engine 2747 shown above was constructed entirely in the local shops,
thc work being done in addition to
the regular output of repairs  to
other engines. After the various
parts were made, the frames for
the locomotive were laid down on
March 11 and construction was
completed on April 19th, a total of
27 working day.!, the first run
being made to Winnipeg on the following day.
Number 2747 is classed as a 38%
engine, is caoahle of main and
branch line fc -; rht hnnrlling and
has sufficient s leed lo run the
Transcontinental.    The weight of
the locomotive and tender complete
is 193 tons. After trial runs, it will
be used on main line time freight
trains on the Alberta district of
the Canadian National, where the
best use can be made of this class
of locomotive and where the fuel
saving devices with which it is
equipped will give the most economical results. Number 274S, wbich
is now in course of construction at
Transcona, will be ready for service in Alberta in May.
