"Tell me what you Know Is tru-
I csn ***** es well aa you."
FRIDAY, MAY 1, 1925
"PROBABLY themost keen-
■*■ ly contested election ever
held in this constituency end
ed in a clean-cut victory for
the Liberal candidate on Sat
urday evening. The Herculean task of making a large
number of eletors see oppositely from what they did at
the last general election had
been accomplished.
In the defeat of Dr. Kingston, the opposition have
tbe satisfaction of knowing
that they placed their sjrong-
est available candidate in
nomination, if there is any
consolation to be derived
trom this fact.
The weather was just right
and a very heavy vote was
cast at all the polling places
in the riding. The party
workers kept up, their vigil-
auce and emulated the beaver
until the polls closed at 7
o'clock in the evening. The
ladies' political organizations
were especially active, and
some effective campaign work
was done by them.
The returns began to come in
shortly after tbe polls closed,
Cascade being tbe first town to
■end io tbe result of tbe poll.
From that time, at short intervals, other places were beard
from until tbe vote in this city was
announced, wbeo it became certain
tbat the victory of tbe battle of
ballots bad fallen to tbe Lib-ral
oandidate, Dougald McPherson.
Wben all doubt of} a victory had
been removed, an adjournment was
made from the Liberal committee
rooms, where an impromptu pro-
gjam of merriment was carried nut.
The first part consisted of a few instrumental numbers, brief remarks
by Chairman J. A. McCallum, Mr.
McPherson and Hou. William
Sloan, minister of mines.
Mr. McPherson thanked the electors for tbe bonor tbey had done
him,and added tbat it the handsome
vote given him meant anything it
meant tbat honest politics paid.
Hon. Mr. Sloan atrributed tbe defeat ot the opposition candidate in a
measure to tbe fact tbat tbe Conservative leader bad been in the city
wbile two opposition meetings were
held and had failed to appear on
the platform at either of tbem; The
eleotors, he said, had a right to hear
the leader of a great party proclaim
bis policies from tbe publio platform. He predicted that this election   would    mean   Mr.  Pooley's
replacement   as   leader of the Conservative party.
After tbe epenking tbe gathering
was turned into a dance, whicb
lasted until midnight. ■
Greenwood Celebrates
On Monday eveniog Qreenwood
celebrated the victory. Ahout a
dozen motor cars, each carrying
from five to eight passengers, went
up from this city and joiued irs tbe
jollification.
A smoker was held in the Iiti k
of Montreal building, and smokes
and soft drinks were served to the
large crowd present, which included
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, and his private secretary,
Joseph McDougail.
But the iargest crowd of the celebration assembled at tbe Masonic
hall, wbere dancing to good music
was kept up until a late hour Interspersed between the dances were
addresses by the minuter of mines
and Mr. McPherson. A young lady
from Midway also Ban an origi al
song laudatory of the victory and
the Liberal mem br-elect, wbicb
was vigorously applauded.
Tbe celebrations in botb cities
were, on the whole, good naiured affairs to wbicb not even tbe defeated
opposition could take offence.
BETTER RETURNS
EOR FRUIT CROP
In an address at Chilliwack last
week, President E. J. Chambers of
the Associated Growers gave a short
review nf the apple situation covering
recent yeara. In 1923, he said, the
growers of apples received 40c a box
for tbeir fruit, which was but half
the cost of production With improved organization, in 1924 between
75 and 80 cents a box was realized,
aud he believed that with the development of the selling organization,
which now includes the berry grow*
ers.still greater and more satisfactory
returns would be realized in 1925.
He believed that a batter day was
dawning for the British Columbia
fruit growers.    It has   been   proven
THE SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST
beyond doubt that the grower must
have an organized method of distri
dution or results would bu disastrous.
The plan of the felling organization
includtd I lie establishment of ware"
houses at the larger ceuters, with
competent men in charge, while a
staff of travelii g salesmen would sell
the products of the growers direct to
the retailers iu towns and cities of
the three western provinces.
Less thaneirioad lot shipments of
small fruits to retailers would be enn
couraged, on wbich it was possible
the grower would receive an initial
payment at the time of shipment,
with final settlement within thirty
days.
The diffiu)ties of entering a field of
operation which had been und. r the
Cun''roi of other jobber-brokers was
recognized, but he was optimistic as
the the outcome.
With reference to the competition
of foreign fruit, the growers had re.
ceived tbe definite promise of thu
government that the antidumping
law would be made effective when required.
The meeting passed a sesolution
thanking the Ottawa government for
its fruit combine investigation and
urging that legislation be passed to
make jobber owned brokerage houses
illegal.

FRIDAY, AAY 1, 192.5
As was predicted by Tbe Sail last week, the
Liberal candidate was elected by a good, safe
majority in the by election in this riding last
Saturday.   The reasons for tho result are not
difficult to discern.    The member-elect has a
clean record and is a man of more tban average
ability and has great promise as a parliamen
tarian; the government is entrenched in office
for at least three years more, and naturally a
majority of the electors reasoned that it would
be advantageous ti the constituency to have
t represented by a man in sympathy with the
administration.   As the government's record
still  remains  unblemished, this trend of rea
soning must be accepted as the main factor in
the big change in public opinion since the last
general   election.    The   fact  that it   was   a
straight two-party fight may also be assumed
as haviug been in  favor of Mr Mt PheJsou.
While Dr. Kingston, the defeated  Conservative candidate, is a man of the highest standing in the community, his party lacks a leader
and a constructive policy, and it is safe to say
that the majority of electors voted against the
party rather than agdinst the man.   But even
the few debatable claims they had for recogni
tion were-presented to the electors by the opposition speakers and press in arguments so
weak and  contradictory  tbat a boll weevil
might have improved on them.
In former days an event like the result
of the Grand Forks-Greenwood hy election
would have.been considered of sullieient importance to merit front-page space in the daily
press. But last, Monday this event was
crowded to rhe inside pages, or omitted
altogether, by pictures of criminals nnd stories
of crime, which are now featured in all metropolitan dailies and their smallei satellites.

CANADIAN NATIONAL
PROMOTES RESOURCES
SINCE Its organization, the colonization and development department of the Canadian National Railways has given attention to thc development of the
natural resources of the territory
traversed by Canadian National
lines; and, in order to give greater
effect to the activities of this
branch of the department, it haa
been decided to place a representative in charge in the western region, whose chief duty will be to
gather information and promote
further the development of these
resources, more especially in the
provinces of British Columbia and
Alberta. In this way, the facta
obtained can be hrought to the attention of those interested, with
capital.
The office for this district will be
at Edmonton, in charge of R. C.
W. Lett, now General Agent, Colonization and Development Department, Canadian National Railways,
who is well fitted for the work,
having had considerable experience
in i connection with mining and
lumbering, and during the past
ieyr years has made a very close
study of the natural resources of
British Columbia and Alberta.

FACTS ABOUT TEA SERJES-No. 5
What 'Orange PeRoe' Means
Many buyers of tea have come to ask for
'Orange Pekoe' believing that it signifies
fine quality. This is not, however, necessarily the case. In the trade 'Orange Pekoe'
is only a name given to the first leaf below
the bud or tip on any Indian or Ceylon tea
bush. An 'Orange Pekoe* leaf grown at a
high elevation usually possesses a very fine
flavour. If, however, the plant is grown at
a low elevation, it may still be 'Orange
Pekoe' but also be of very poor quality. The
consumer's only safeguard is to buy a tea
of recognized goodness. Higb grown 'Orange
Pekoes' comprise a large part of every blend
of "SALADA" and give to "SALADA" its
unequalled flavour.

According to press despatches from London, Lord Willingdon, 1st Viscount
Ratton, who was scheduled to sail from Liverpool on April 9th by
Canadian Pacific steamship "Montroj*al" as special emissary from the
Hastings Corporation to the Quebec City council, has postponed his visit
for some time owing to the illness of Viscountess Willingdon.
His Lordship'B official mission, which will be carried out when the
Viscountess recovers, will bc to return to the City of Quebec the shield which
was taken from its gates when it was captured by General Wolfe In 1769
and which was p.esented to the Hasting's Corporation by General Murray
who was present on that memorable occasion.
Since that time the shield has hung over the door of the Council Chamber
m the Town Hall at Hastings and Quebec has endeavoured to obtain Its
.eturn, for years in vain, but at lust Hastings has relented.       ...      .
Viscount. Willingdon will be accompanied by his wife who beiore her
marriage was the Hon. Mario Adelaide, daughter of 1st Baron Br-usey,
together with his son the Hon. Inigo Brassey Freeman-ThomaB and bla wile.
Howe's entertaining Monthly
is the following:
An old gentleman had a son
named Joe and said to him:
"I'm getting old and tired. I
want you to go to college,
become thoroughly educated
and take over the business.
Then I will spend the rest of
my life in ease."
So Joe went to college and
did fairly well. At the end of
eight years he was graduated
and said to his father: "I am
told by the professors I should
travel extensively before settling down and taking over
the business."
And the father was willing,
and Joe went abroad for three
years with a liberal allowance.
Finally he came back, and
the father met him joyfully.
■Now," ho said, "you can
take over the business, and I
will retire."
And Joe said: "Father,
don't do that. Manage the
busiuess a few years longer in
your usual vigorous fashion,
andtnen we'll both retire."
A quantity of goods and chattels
was seized on distress warrants from
the Doukhobor colony bere on Wednesday by the provincial peace officer.
