G. G. McGeer, K.C, government

latter imperative instructions (0 pro-
ceed at once with revision of tbe
whole of British Columbia's case to
bring it in line witb the new federal
Premier Oliver then gave out the
following official statement:
"As a result of our discussion of
tbe rate question, Mr. McGeer has
been instructed to revise this province's position in oonectioo .vith
tbe rate case.
'-This is necessitated by tbe legislation passed at the recent session of

News of Premier Oliver's decision
was received witb mucb satisfaction
by Vancouver business men Thursday nigbt, although tbey bad taken
it for granted tbat tbe premier
would realise tbe absolute necessity
of pressing tbe issue aod taking
nothing for granted.
"We have got to keep rigbt on

tbe comment of a prominent mem-

William Jenning Bryan, the famous commoner, died suddenly at Dayton, Tennessee,
on Sunday while taking a rest after eating a
hearty dinner. History will undoubtedly record Mr. Bryan as one of the foremost orators
of his time. As a politician his success W'as'by
no means brilliant, and as secretary of state_
during Woodrow Wilson's first administration
he exhibited consideraule weakness. But he
was an orator, and as an orator his name will
preserved by history.
Premier Oliver expresses himself as im
pressed with thi* extent of the coalfield at Hat
creek, fifteen miles east of the Pacific Groat
Eastern line, but he intimates that before a
spur line is discussed the government will
have to consider many important factors, such
as quality of coal, the' cost of mining anti
marketing it, the quantity which could be
marketed and the extent to which existing
collieries are getting rid of their output. It is
understood that very complete assays and an
alyses will be made by the government experts in otder to determine tbe quality of the
coal, of which there are enormous deposits.

British   labor has no love for Dean Inge,

order in Britain and denounces the leveling
programs of the new democratic forces.   The
labor press hits at the doughty dean at every
opportunity. He did not escape its barbs even
on his recent visit to Canada and the  United
States, as is shown by the following comment
by the London Daily Herald, organ of the
British Labor party: "Lecturing at Yale university on Monday last, Dean Inge declared
that modern ministers who sought notoriety
were a positive danger to the Christian church.
Well, surely he ought to know."

to disallow the aot was made by a number of

question had been carefully looked into by the

Figures made public by the provincial department of labor show that there were nine
labor disputes in the province in 1924, invol v-
ing 3470 workers and causing the loss in the
industrial life of British Columbia of 223,876
working days. The chief area of trouble was
the southwest portion of the province, where
serious disputes broke out in tbe logging and
coal mining industries. During-the year several differences between employers and employees were settled through the mediation of

An order in council has been approved of
authorizing the expenditure of $15,000 for the
purchase and distribution of poison, to be
supplied to the farmers in tbe districts threatened by tbe swarms of grasshoppers which are
invading many parts of the interior. Reports
reaching the department of agriculture are to
the effect that in some places these insects are
stripping the soil bare of anything green and
leaving the trees without a leaf. The dry
weather is responsible for the extent of the
trouble, but satisfactory progress is being made
by the farmers in united effort to cope with
t ie plague.
The Vaal river in flood as an  outcome of
continuous   rains   has drawn  thousands   of
sightseers.   The barrage has  steadity   regulated the flow.   The quantity of water which
is let down through  the pier gates in ono day
would have been sufficient to supply the Iiand
with 10,000,000 gallons a day for  two years.
The only tributary of the Vaal which had not
given any appreciable response to the recent
rtins was the Zuikerbosch, which  drains  the
Heidelberg Nigel district.    On March 18, six
years ago, a tremendous flush of water came
down—four times the quantity registered this
year, when the rate of flow   averaged  16,000
cubic feet per second.
Owing to the modern and efficient methods
adopted by the department of public works
during the past few years the cost of supervision of roads has been reduced materially,
and in most cases it is now lower than the

Vancouver business man on his return from a
motor trip which took bim as far as Alberta,
it is stated that tbe roads of the province are

Two automobile accidents occurred
in Montreal over the week-end at
railway'crossings, in both of which
it was proven that the car struck
the train. In the first accident the
car ran into the first car behind the

Three Rivers, Quebec, Has New Station
Citizens of Three Rivers, Quebec, regard the recent inauguration of the new Canadian Pacific Railway Station
as marking a new epoch in the life of their city inasmuch as it affords proof of the status already attained by
Trois-Rivieres as an industrial centre and of the greater prominence it is expected to occupy in the future. The new
station building is the most up-to-date and magnificent of its kind in eastern Canada. Of its construction cost, not
less than {200,000 represents the amount of money spent in Three Rivers.
Some idea as to the way Three Rivers has developed may be gathered from afew remarks made by E. J. Hebert, first
assistant general passenger agent, Canadian Pacific Railway, in proposing a toast at the banquet that marked the
official opening. "Until 187 5 navigation was the only transportation facility" he said. "Then the Northern Railway
was built between Quebec, Three Rivers and Montreal, but it was not until 1905 that industries began to appear.
With the opening of the St. Maurice Valley Railway trade developed rapidly.. The towns of Shawinigan Falls,
Grand Mere, Cap-de-la-Madeleine, La Gabelle, small hamlets in 1905, have become important industrial centresj
with populations respectively of 12,000,7,600 and 3,000 people, wbile Three Rivers itself has over 30,000 populatior
now and is still growing."

.Alice Discovers New Wonderland at Wembley
"Tho animals went Into ths Ark la case It should rain.
Long John Sllvor wa* also there."
"I know what we'll do," said Alice, "let's go to Wemb-
1 ley." "What do you want to go to Wembley for?"
iRked the Walrus, who waB always asking foolish questions anyway.
"I -want to see the Balling ships and sealing-wax and
cabbages and kings," replied Alice.
"Ha, ha," laughed the Walrus, ''you won't see any
sealing-wax there, It's all at Madame Tussauds and I
havo my doubts about the cabbages, too."
"Well, I shall see lots of sailing ships and kings,"
said Alice starting to cry, for she was vory fond of
cabbages, "and, anyway, if you no to the Exhibition
alone you won't be able to get In to Treasure Island as
they don't admit adults unless they are escorted by
"Oh, all right," said the Walrus, who, being 182
years, old, DO longer regarded himself as a child and
had secretly wanted to go to Treasure Island all the
So away they went.
When they arrived at Treasure Island tliey found a
real train—not a very big one, it is true, but, nevertheless, the realest train in the world—puffing like a
grampus, at a little station labelled Banff, as if anxious
to get on Its way around Wonderland,
"Look," said Alice, "there's PcIt Pan."
"That ain't Peter Pan," said the Walrus, whose education had heen sadly neglected, "that's a Canadian
Pacific engine."
"I don't care," answered Alice, st.i'ting to cry again,
for, like all modern children, she hated to be contra-
dicted by her elders, "it's called Peter Pan because it
goes everywhere and never gets olii or tiresome." Thin
sly reference to his age eflectlv.ely subdued (he Walrus,
who noV relapsed Into silence, and didn't say another
word until they wero seated in thb 'litle train and aiowly pulling out of Banff.  ■
It would take too long to describe all tlie things they
iiaw or all tbe wonderful -,.- ■■• '■ In -J I '. but they
had such an Interestl**.- tlmi thai '■',.;-■: soon forgot all
about htr cabbages and sealing-wax.
There waB Long John Silver, with his one eye tnd
wooden leg and piratical disposition; and thore were
Mother Goose, Sir Francis Drake, Robinson Crusoe and
Man Friday, Hurnpty Dumpty, Little Bo Peep, Jack and
Gill and all the other fairyland people Alice had read
about but never metjiefore. And they saw the animals going into tho Ark which Noah had' provided for
them ln case a rainy day should come along and wash
off all their paint.
Of course, they saw lots of other things, too — the
Rocky Mountains, for Instance, and the Golden Hind.
"While we're about it," said Alice, when they had
seen all there was to see at Treasure Island, "we
might as well go In and see the "Canadian Pacific
Pavilion. Everybody goes there, you know." So ln
they went, and Baw all the good things to eat and wear
and work with that they have ln Canada. They were
shown around* the building by a big man ln blue who
had "C.P.R." on his epaulettes, and explained to them
that the Initials meant Canadian Pacific Railway, and
that they had put up this building and made Treasure
Island in order to let the boys and glrU ln England
know what a fine country Canada is. But lt presently
began to get dark and Alice bad to take tho Walrus
home and give him a bath before he went to bed.
"Well, that's that," remarked the Walrus, when they
got outside.
"Of course, It Is,' 'replied Alice' '.what else would it
'be ?" "I mean It's all over now," grumbled the Walrus who had been annoyed because Alice had refused
to allow him to go into the Ark with the other animals,
"and you didn't see any sealing-wax or cabbages, and
not many kings either."
"That's quite true," replied Alice patiently, "but I've
round out a  lot about Canada and I've had a Jolly
ood time, so you may grouse as much as you like—
"ni quit*- satisfied."
And so they went home, and the funny part of it is,
Alice did not wake up—for she had not been dreaming
at all.
