A $15,000 WINDFALL
Summerland, May 4.—Summer-
land Cooperative Growers' association distributed $15,000 among its
members last week. This payment
was in tbe nature of a bonus, final
statements with cheques having
already been handed to members for
the 1924 fruit crop. This $15,000
was made up by economies effected
in tbe season's packing operations,
alo g witb some tag cuds of money
from the several variety pools. A
further sum of $5000 will be dis

Press dispatch's fnf' rm us that
negotiations bave been consummated whereby the Canadian Pacific
railway will take over that portion
of tbe Great Northern liue between
Grand Forks and Princetou. B.

of the Greot Northern for ibis division, is credited witb niakiog the
above statement.
Tbe deal was r ported as pending
some weeks ago, when H McLeod.
of Winnipeg, assistant chief engineer for the Canadian Pacific, made
an inspection of tbe line.
A portion of the line reported to
have been sold runs across tbe inter*
national boundary, linking, Curlew,
Repubiic, Molson and Oroville.
Wash, but tbe rail distance be
tween tbis city end Princeton is 57
miles shorter than the Canadian
Pacific and Kettle Valley route and
the grades are mucb easier.
It is understood tbat tbe line is
very attractive to the Canadi n Pacific with a view of its handling
concentrste shipments between
Copper Mountain mine and Princeton and Trail smelter; also shipments from the Consolidated company's plant at Trail to New West
minster for transshipment to Bel
gium and the Orient.

Canadian exports to France in
1924 were valued at 482,826,000

of late years which ia attributed
partly to the Treaty of Commerce

His views have been made known

Luther, addressing a big Industrial convention, was recognized to
be acting ae Hindenburg'e mouthpiece aod to be expressing tbe policies of tbe president elect.
The chancellor expeessed hope for
peaceful understanding throuhout

conduct a war.
Hope that a safety pact with
Frauce and others of the allies
would be consummated speedily and
that the Ruhr and Cologne areas
will be evacused soon was expressed
by the chancellor.
"Let us banish the uncertainty
and lack of clarity in the European
situation," Luther pleaded.
Without qualification, he announced continuance of Germany's
previous foreign policy.
Behind the words of tbe speaker
all Germany recognized the purpose
to convey Hindenburg'e policies ro
the world.
A "show down" with the allies
on the subject of German disarmament was demanded.
Fulfillment of tbe Da/ves plan
was promised.

a shoe store to buy himself a new

A week later the man called on
the shoe merchant and inbuired
when his boots would be ready.

Poets are not of necessity either
modest or arrogant. There are ex-
examples oi both tempers. But a
poet who has a fixed conviction of
hiB own greatness can have few
rivals in the intensity of his selfe
satisfaction. In a criticaj, article on
the work of James Joyce, H. S
Gorman recalls Mr. Joyce's remark
when he was introduced to William
B.', Yeats, tbe Irish poet wbo bas
just received the Nobel prize for
literature. "We have met too late,"
said Joyce superbly. "You are too
old to be influenced by me."

FRIDAY, AAY 8, 1925
It is surprising how quickly the attitude
of the opposition press, and of the entire
Conservative party for that matter, toward the
Donkbobors in this province changed from
hatred and antagonism to solicitous love as
soon as the government commenced to enforce
the provincial school laws in the community
uear this city. The conversion was too sudden
to allay the suspieiou that there a good deal
of demagoguism about it. Either that, or it
was brought about by p liticai exigencies, But
whatever cause may have induced the change
of heart, we look for a recanting of the new
in the immediate future.
The Sun is free to admit that it is not entirely in accord with the measures taken by the
governmeut to enforce the laws against  these
misguided people.  It is of the opinion that lhe
means adopted are rather harsh and will work
a great hardship against an  industrious  portion of our population—we can not call  them
citizens,  because they   persistently refuse to
"become citizens of  the country.   However,
we are willing to watch events for a reasonable time, and if the action taken by  the administration  brings forth  the desired result,
we will gladly admit, as all  unbiased  people
will have to admit, that the means taken were
justified.   In  taking this stand  The Sun is
quite consistent.    While it has on one or two
occasions in the past taken the part of these
people, it has never condoned  their violation
of the laws ofthe land in which they live.
means unanimous even in this district, and
the recent seizures have gained them much
sympathy from people who were formerly
their enemies. Therefore we do not believe
that the government's action added a single
vote to the Liberal candidate's total.

Shortly after the close of the war we had
good reason to believe that an effort was be
ing made by a few agitators and self-interested
persons to incite the people to mob violence
against the colony. At that time this paper
raised its voice against such a proceeding It
was a thankless and unpopular task, but we
have reason to believe that our efforts averted
a disgraceful if not a tragic blot on the community.

A few years ago the Doukhobors in the

increased until a teacher in one of their
schools gamed, justly or unjustly, their dis-

Appearance of Tea Wo Guide
The only way to test tea Is to taste it.' Many
people have the idea that a finely rolled
and tippy tea is superior in flavour to a
large rough leaf. In reality this is not of
necessity the case. The altitude at which
the tea plant grows determines the amount
of essential oil and alkaloid theine in the
leaf. The essential oil gives tea its flavour;
the theine contributes the stimulating
value. The only way to insure always receiving a uniform quality is to insist: upon
a skilfully blended and scientifically sealed
tea like "SALADA" whose reliability, goodness and delicious flavour have become a
household word.

Passing next day through the Gap,
the gateway of the Rockies, where
the roadway is hewn through the
solid rock, Banff ia reached on thc
first Saturday of the trip.
At this point the traveller enters
fairyland. Banff is the headquarters
of the Rocky Mountains Park, a
region of 2,751 square miles, covering
rivers, lakes and mountain scenery
of unsurpassed grandeur. The weekend is spent in this district. Drives
and automobile trips here make
a pleasant contrast with the train
jotlrney and the wonderful sights
will live long in memory. There is
Lake Louise, an exquisitely colored
limpid mirror of glaciers and Bnow-
crowned peaks and the brilliant blue
of the Bky with its argosies of fleecy
clouds. Mounts Stephen, Chancellor
and Sir Donald rise into view as the
Great Divide is crossed and the
marvelous Yoho Park iB traversed.
Canyons, caves, valleys, deep gorges,
passeB twinkle past the tram in its
journey which is sometimes slowed up
to admit of a more lasting impression.
The scenery is so perfect that to avoid
missing any the train does not travel
at night and continues its journey at
dawn. For 250 miles it passes through
the Great Canyons of the Thompson
and Fraser Rivera and the long day of
fifteen hours is one unbroken pasture of delight. Vancouver is at last
reached and a short but interesting
boat trip ia made across the straits of

with its vast areas. When in addition
tbe West is brought home to the East
by a tour covering most of the

very valuable addition to one's
knowledge of one's own country has
been consummated.
ThiB iB the object of the 21-day
tour of Canada which iB now being
arranged by the Canadian Teacher's
Federation In repetition of their very
successful similar trip last summer.
The party will leave Toronto westbound July 20 and will be back in
that city August 10. It will be under
the personal direction of Professor
Sinclair Laird, Dean of the School
for Teachers, MacDonald College,
Quebec. The journey out and return
will be over Canadian Pacific Railway
lines, motors and boats and stop-overs
will be arranged at points of interest.
Starting from Toronto in the afternoon, the train passes through a land
of beautiful lakes, the Muskoka
region, reaching Sudbury and continuing through the big game district
of Northern Ontario and akirting the
shoreB of Lake Superior for many
miles before arriving at Port Arthur
and Fort William,thetwin cities where

The return journey lakes us

district. An overnight journey ends
at Lake Windermere where after a
trip to the Camp there iB a motor run
of 104 miles over the newly completed Banff-Windermere Highway

four full days—are take*n up with
