la spite of the oounter attractions
of a ladies'orchestra dance and active preparatioos for tbe opening of
tbe fair, the Liberal meeting io tbe
Empress theater on Monday night
drew a large crawd, io spite of tbe
fact that only a fer* hours' notice
bad been given.
D. McPherson, member for Grand
Forks Greenwood, occupied the
chair. In introducing tbe speaker
of the evening, Col. C. E. Edgett,
D.S.O./Liberal candidate for Yale,
be stated that tbe colonel was
Canadian of tbree geoeratione He
bad gone overseas at the outbreak
of tbe world war a lieutenant and be
oame baok as a colonel. His present
occupation was tbat of a farmer—
and he worked his farm. Besides
farming, Mr. Edgett was also at the
head of tbe G.W.V.A ; held offices
in tbe British Columbia F uit Growers' association and tbs Associated
Growers, as well as taking an active
interest in municipal and. school
board affaire. Tbs speaker wondered
what the colonel did with his time
when everything was running
smoothly ln these organisations.
In urging the electors to give tbe
Liberal candidate tbeir loyal sup
port, the speaker said tbat Mr. Ed
gett had won high honors ia the
milirary service, and wherever he
had been tried in civil lite he bad
been found true.
Col. Edgett was given a warm wel
eome as be rose to speak. Before
proceeding witb bis speejh be set
the obairman's mind at rest by saying tbst he farmed during his spare
moment—and fought graasbopers,
a pest that was bsooming quite a
menace io some parts of the Okam-
Mr. Edgett said he was fully alive
to the great responsibilities that
rested upon a member of tbe Dominion, bouse. Like responsibilities
rested upon the electors in choosing
their representatives He then paid
a fine tribute to the sterling qualities of tbe late John MacKelvie.

Mr Edgett oom pared tbe state of
the country's finances under the

th*- Mackenzie Kine government
took office the Canadisn dollar was
only worth 82 cents. At present, it
ie at a premium. The country exported more than she imported. The

gloom oo the opposition platforms
or by the "whispers of death" in
Montreal. Hs- quoted maoy high
authorities to prove tbat ibe coun
try is io a healthy condition. And
thou, he coutinued, we are told tbat
the country is goin-r to tbe dogs.
"The opposition," he said, "will
wave tbe banner of gloom to get
your votes "
Tbe speaker read editorial comments from tbe Vancouver Province
whicb depreoated the "Whisper of
Death" articles, asserting tbat they
were doiog an injustice to the w-?st
and to the whole of Canada.
There is a feeliog of optimism io
the west, asserted Mr. Edgett, and
lo prove tbis statement be quoted
tbe opinions of prominent financial
men- He also cited tbe fact tbat
the newspapers were filled witb
items of business and industrial revivals nowadays. He intended to
do wbat be could to show the apos*
ties of gloom tbat we hsd a country
worth saving.
Col. Edgett discussed the tariff
question at some length. Tbe charge
of the opposition tbat the Liberai
party is a free trade party was ab
surb Canada must have a tariff as
well as otber countries. But tariff
alone would not save the fruit
grower. Instead of devoting all our
energies to holding tbe prairie market, legislation should be enacted bat
would ■ ive tbe Canadian grower an
equal chance in tbe biggest market
in the world—tbe 110,000,000 bun-
gry souls south of tbe international
boundary line.
Speaking on tbe railway question,
Col. Edgett asserted tbat under tbe
Meighen administration there bad
been an operating deficit of ill,
000,000 per year. Now tbere was an
operating surplus. Tbe legislation
regarding tbe Kamloops-Kelowna
iins was fully gone into. The charge
made by opposition speakers that
the Canadian National is not out of

How soon the thoughtless oourse of j cy
Is doom'd to terminate ia pain?
When prudenoe would thy step delay,
She but restrains to make thee blest;
Whate'er from joy she lops away,
But heightens and secures the rest.
Wouldst thou a trembling flame expand,
That hastens in the lamp to diet

The feeding stream of life supply.
But if thy flask profusely sheds
A rushing torrent o'er the b ace,
Swift round the sinking flame it spreads,
And kills the Are it fain would raise.

Southern Alberta is Beekeeper's Paradise
Iftnur—Einniftt**a tka
bssMln Gstorge RlwUl'i
Apter In the Coats*!*
Lower— Aoolossyof
Southern  Alberto's Irrigated  districts, with their large fields of
alfalfa and sweet clover, promise to
'become   the   beekeeper's   paradise
within the next five years.
Two years ago, less than 10,000
pounds of honey were produced in
Alberto. Last year, 60,000 pounds
were produced — end 82 carloads imported into the West to supply the
demand.", This year, on the C.P.R.
irrigated project at Lethbridge, there
will be produced more than 100,000
pounds. And this is just a start.
"Southern Albeita's irrigated die-
tilcto will be shipping trainloads—
not -carloads—of honey to the markets within five yean" declared Frank
C. Pellatt, field editor ef the American
Bee Journal, Hamilton, Illinois, on
the occasion ot hia visit to Southern
Alberta late in July this year. "ThiB
is the greatest potential honey producing district in Nort|h America."
Today, one apiarist in the Coaldale
district on the C.P.R. irrigated project has 600 colonies of Hies. Tbia
man, C. Oeorge Riedel, came to
Southern Alberta from' California in
the spring of 1924 and started with
SOO colonies.   In 1926 he will have
1800 colonies and will make more
than 150 tone of honey. This year
his bees will make him about 50 tonj,
and one wholesale firm having
branchee throughout the West li
handling the whole output.  ..
Each colony of bees makes about
200 pounds in a season, though one
-■•olony at the  Lethbrfdo  Experi
mental Farm broke all reccrda for
Canada by making 472 pounds in the
season of 1928. A record of 21 pounds
in one day by one colony waa made
in 1928 when the beea at the Experimental Farm averages 189 pounds fo:
the season, the high record for the
year at the experimental farm!

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
provided this year will take care of
almost fifty per cent, more guests.
Four 4-room bungalows, each

the first six months of this year
amounted to $14,506,219, as compared with $11,810,060 in tiie corresponding period of last year, according to a report issued by the
Provincial Department of Mines.
Silver production increased from
$3,262,100 to $8,792,662. Total mineral production was $41,560,366, as
compared with $87,997,776.

Wilton, who travelled across the entire continent in e small motor-boat
arrived recently ln Montreal and
moored their craft to Canadian
Pacific Pier No. 8 having come from
Astoria, Oregon, via Columbia River,
Ceilio Falls, Fort Benton, the Missouri and Mississippi Rivers, the
Chicago Drainage Canal and Lake
Michigan since Mey, 80th. From
Montreal they continued their journey to New Tork and returned to
the States, via Canadian Pacific
Railway to Vancouver and Seattle
in order to ssw the country.
The groundwork for what promises to be a big industry is now
being developed by the Singer Sewing Machine Company at Thurso, a
point on the Canadian Pacific Railway, on the north shore line to Ottawa. It is planned by the Singer
Company Yo manufacture at Thurso
all the woodwork required for their
numerous plants in different parts
ef the world. Work on the new plant
is being pushed with all possible
speed and it is anticipated that shipments from Thurso will commence
sometime early next year.
While the Canadian Railway Commission is besieged with all kinds of
applications for reductions in Canadian freight rates, the Western
group of railways in the United
States is asking for a five per cent
increase and the northwestern section of the group is asking more
than that "as a measure of relief."
Some of these roads are in the hands
ef the receivers. Yet these American railways already have higher
rates than the Canadian roads, the
freight revenues in the U.S.A. being
1,298 cents per ton mile on western
lines as compared with 1,011 cents
en all Canadian railways. The
average American rate is 28 per
cent above the average Canadian
rate.' Owing to the low grain rates
in Canada, the C.P.R. average rate
is 1,011 per ton mile, so that the
average rate on American western
lines is mors than 30 per cent above
the average C.P.R. rate.
