Being exceeded only by Mexico'
and the United States, Canada now
ranks third among the silver producing countries of the world. Records of Canadian production have
been kept since 1858 and show a
total recovery of 451,000,000 fine
ounces to the end of 1923. In 1924
production Was slightly in excess of
20,000,000 ounces. During 1858-
1923 the value of production totalled
1290,705,532, while for last year it
amounted to $13,519,043.

May Ship Fruit
To New Zealand
E. J. Chambers, president of tbe
Associated ^Growers, left Penticton
tbis week for Vanoouver to discuss
witb Alex Marshall, of tbe Canadian
Manufacturer^ association, a proposal for tbe shipping to Dunedin,
New Zealand, of a representative
collodion of British Columbia fruit
for display at the forthcoming exhibition there.
Tbe proposal is regarded as an
experime t tbat may result in tbe
development of considerable trade
between tbe Antipodes and Vancouver io fresh fruit from tbis
province and fruit and other commodities from "down under," in
view oithe fact that these reciprocal
shipments could be made during
tbe off season in eacb country.
Vernon, July 6.—Though tbe
volume of business during tbe season 1924-1925 was one tbird less
tban tbat of tbe previous year, tbe

$177,854 larger, it wae shown by
the financial report read at tbe annual meeting of the Associated
Growers of British Columbis, beld

Ottawa, July 6.—A wheat yield
of 350,000,000 buehe s for Canada
in 1925 is estimated by tbe Domin»
ion bureau of statistics in a crop
report issued on Friday. Tbe figure
ie based upon tbe acreage of last
year and according to reports received by tbe bureau to date the
area sown this year is approximately
the same as lest year. A yield of
350,000,000 bushels wonld be 10,
000,000 bushels above tbe average
of tbe last five years.
"Splendid rains bave fallen tbit
year during tbe critical period of
grow b and Bhould favorabfe conditions continue tbe yield may well
be considerably larger tban that indicated," says tbe report.
The United States department of agriculture in its
Jnne estimate places the Oregon apple crop at 75 per cent
normal as against 70.4 per
cunt in 1924. The Washington crop is estimateeat 76 per
cent of normal as against 55
per cent in 1924. These fig
ures havo a particular interest for the British Columbia
growers as applying to box
apples, but market values are
determined by the total com
mercial supply, and it is here
that nature has endeavored to
play fair. Apple growing districts of the middle and eastern states which escaped the
winter injury, were visited by
spring frosts and cold, wet
weather during the blossoming period, which reduced the
set of fruit to even greater extent than in the west.
During the past winter   we  have
suffered one of tbe visitations against
wbich   no   amount   of foresight or
precaution could protect  us, wbicb
bas had disastrous effect  on  many
of our crops. The present indications,
are  tbat  tbe  total  volume of our
fruit production will fall at least  10
per cent below tbat of 1924.   In tbe
Daturel course of things 1925,  succeeding a year of low   production,
should   be   a   year of   large apple
crops on tbe  American  continent,
and under normal conditions  this
would undoubtedly bave   been  tbe
case, but for some inscrutable reason
Dame Nature decided otherwise and
for once was fairly impartial  in tbe
distribution of her favors.
In the northwestern states the severe w ntcr conditions, wbich ware
responsible for curtailing our crops,
prevailed to a greater or less extent
witb a somewhat similar result. Al*

We re eived a c-ill lo look at a

We doubt if this lot will pay express charges. Just why fruit growers should allow such stuff to exist
in their orchards is a puttie. They

It is forbidden to leave a car standing, whether

A warning has been issned to  beer parlor
licensees by the liquor control board that they
must be more strict in the enforcement of the
regulations for the sale of beer by the glass.
It is intimated that licenses will be suspended
or cancelled altogether unless this is done.
Tbe board is not satisfied with conditions  in
some beer parlors, and it is qelieved that some
of its rules are being ignored.    It  is   pointed
out that licensees are under no legal obligation to sell beer to undesirable characters, and
that .they must be particularly careful in regard to the class of people they admit to their
establishments. Undesirable women must not
not   be   allowed to patronize beer "parlors.
Drinking by licensees or employees while performing   their duties vill  not be tolerated.
Emphasis is placed upon the necessity of keep

access to the commission's findings. For that

James Caldwell, former deputy of the
British house of commons, who died in Lon
don recently, was a privy councilor and beld
other high honors; but he was above all things
a Scot. On one occasion during the later
eighties he attended one of those typically
Victorian functions, a garden party at Windsor castle. Driving back to London with an
other ^M.P., the latter observed to the then
young and enthusiastic Glaswegian: "Marvel,
ous place, Windsor castle, a complete epitome
of English history." "Yes, indeed," agreed
Caldwell, "did you notice the gold key that
her majesty used to open the Glasgow waterworks in 1859?"
A new fire alarm in England sounds a warning as soon as smoke comes in contact with it,

That highways should be designed with
extra thick edges is indicated by a survey of
where, on the road, automobiles run, made by
the United States i ureau of public works. This
investigation showed that motor trucks are
habitually driven closer to the edge than pas
senger vehicles and that the heaviest load
placed on the pavement comes about six
inches from the edge. Drivers of speeding vehicles tend to crowd closer to the center. Too
high a crown to the highway or a bad shoul
der ^alsi cause machines to run nearer the
middle. Highways should be at least 18 feet
wide and not over 20 feet wide for two-way
traffic, the expeits declared after the observa

The canoeing season brings so'many deaths
by drowning that a contributor %o a Boston
paper is moved to offer some rules that novices should observe. In getting into or out of
a canoe, he says, step into the middle of the
craft and grasp both gunwales at once. In
paddliug keep the full length of the keel under water and your weight as low as possible.
Do not stand up. If caught in a strong wind,
kneel on the bottom rather than sit on one of
the thwarts. Do not change places with a
companion when you are in deep water and
do not let more than one person change at the
same time. Never try to steady the canoe by
holding to anything on the bank, for if the
craft drifts out it may overbalance. When
paddling in a current or in rough water keep
your paddle close to the side of the canoe.
A report from Victoria says that allegations
were made recently by a visitor from the
northeastern pirt of the provinee that that
district is not receiving sufficient attention
from the provincial police, and that as a result there is much selling of liquor to Indians
and bootlegging of furs. A statement from
the attorney general's department denies these
assertions. In order to more adequately po
lice the north country a new post was estab
lished at Finlay Forks last year and there is
complete coordination between the provincial
and Royal Canadian Mounted Police forces.
The provincial detachment is equipped with
motor driven canoes and covers a large area
along the Parsnip, Finlay and Peace rivers.
The detachment has been very successful in
suppressing the selling of liquor to Indians
and has been of great service to tbe trappers,

There is a remedy for everything rxcept some of the
IT ia not many years since Alaska
was one of those countries
whose geographical location was
indicated with a grandiloquent
sweep of the arm northwards. It
has always been a land of mystery,
romance and adventure.      It has
Srovided the theme for the thrill-
ig tales of novelists and the stirring poems of northern bards. But
even though the' days of the chech-
ako and the sourdough is done, the
brief but active span of the Dangerous Dan Magrews and the Lady
Lou's, matters of historical reference, tbe lure of Alaska has not
waned, but is as appealing as ever
to the hearts of men and women
wherein a hit of romance lurks,
and that means to everyone.
Alaska ia no longer a far off
country. It is a very near neighbor to Canada. It will be even
nearer this summer. Mr. J. E.
Dalrymple, Traffic Vice-President
ef the Canadian National Railways, has announced that commencing on June 22nd, the company will inaugurate a weekly
steamship service between Prince
Rupert and Alaska and that the
oil-burning steamships, "Prince
George" and "Prince Rupert,"
which have already established a
reputation as being among the
best-appointed vessels on the Pacific Coast, will be engaged in this
new service.
Going northward the ships will
reach Prince Rupert at 10.30 on
Wednesday morning, following the
Monday of sailing from Vancouver,
and tourists will he given an opportunity to see something of this
new Pacific port, as the steamer
Home of the scenes along this
magnificent, sea voyage are
shown in the photographs:
(1) A view of Skagway,
Alaska, where visitors will be
given ample time to Bee this
famous town and also to visit
White Horse and the Atlin Lake
(2) A beautiful sunset seenc
on the Lynn Canal, which the
steamships Prince Rupert and
Prince George will thread on
their journey into the. Land, of
the Midnight Sun.
(3) The Taku Glacier, one
mile wide and ninety miles long
—one of the largest and most
beautiful glaciers in the wojrld.
(4) The Prince Rupert,
which, with the Prince -George,
will be used in the Vancouver-
Prince Rupert-Alaska service
this summer. TheBe boats are
oil-burners and are among the
finest appointed vessels in the
Pacific Coast service.
Inset is one of the curious
totem poles to be found in the
business section of Wrangell,
does not continue on its northern
trip until four o'clock that afternoon. After passing Old and New
Metlaktla and Port Simpson, an old
Hudson's Bay Post, calls will be
made at Ketchikan, a typical Alaskan town built at the foot of the
mountains. Proceeding from that
point the steamships will touch at
Wrangell, beautifully situated near
the mouth of the Stikine River and
possessing many associations with
the period when Alaska was a
Russian possession. The next
point touched will be Juneau, ths
capital of Alaska, and a modern
city with good motor roads and
many points of interest, including
the Mendenhall Glacier and mines
whieh have made this country famous. On the way from Wrangell te
Juneau tliere will be an opportunity to see the grandeur of Taku
Inlet and the famous Taku Glacier,
over a mile wide and 90 miles long.
The ships will arrive at Skagway
at seven o'clock Friday morning
and will remain there until seven
o'clock Saturday night, thus giving
ample opportunity to passengers
to see this famous town and to
visit White Horse' and the Atlin
Lake District. On the south-bound
journey the steamers will reach
Vancouver at nine o'clock Wednesday morning, making a complete
ten-day round trip.
In addition to the Alaskan trip,
the tri-wcekly service between
Vancouver and Prince Rupert will
be maintained and also a semi-
weekly service to Anyox and Stewart on the Portland Canal, which
service has bcen in effect for some
time past. The establishment by
thc Canadian National Railways
of this Alaska steam-boat service
will meet the demands of many
tourists, and will be a fitting climax to the famous Triangle Four,
comprising) Jasper National Park,
the Rockies, the Coast Range and
the water voyage through the
"Norway of America."

Monster Tuna Taken in Canadian
As a writer of stirring taleB of the
Border    and   the    mid-western
states In the early dayB, Zane Grey
ha3 made an enviable record for himself, but now along he comes with
another—a fish story—and better
still, presents the proof in photograph,
so that his yarn does not take on
the semblance of a dream or a good
bit of story-tpllini*.
Tuna, weighing nearly half a ton,
are the reward of ambitious anglern
who tv.ih in Nova Scotian wfttera;
particularly in St. Ann's Bay, eff
Cape Breton. Three mairmoth tuna
have boen taken from this locality,
each holding the world's record in
turn. Captain Laurie D. Mitchell's
710 pound tuna held a record for a
number of years, till along came
J. K. L. Ross of Montreal, well known
as an owner of racing horses, director
of the Canadian Pacific Railway and
his skill as a fisherman. He landed a
tuna after a 3M hours' fight, that
measured 9ft. and 2 in. in length, and
6 ft. in girth, and tipped the scales at
712 lbs. thus winning the honour of
record tuna fishing !'om Captain
Mitchel by 2 lbs.
His record seemed secure, when
along-in August, 1924, came Zane
Grey and his brother, R. C. Grey,
