BILLJN^SENATE
Ottawa, June 25.—The bill
to amend the Canada temperance act passed all stages
of the house of commons yesterday morning. It now goes
to the senate.
The bill chiefly -effects the
province of British Columbia
and will give that province
the right to prohibit importation of liquor into the province except for medical, sacramental and industrial purposes.
When the bill came up for
consideration, opposition de '
veloped from the Conservative
benches, Gen. J. A. Clark,
of Burrard, B.C., and George
Black, of the Yukon, objecting that the bill was aimed
chiefly at private citizens and
not at export houses. A. W.
Neill, Independent, Comox-
Alberni, gave hearty support
to the bill. He said theliquor
was being brought intoBritish
Columbia ostensibly for export and no excise was paid.
It was shipped a few miles
out to sea, smuggled back
and bootlegged on a large
scale into the province at
prices which the proviheial
liquor commission could not
compete with.
Mr. Black said the attorney
general of British Columbia
could withhold his consent to
the licensing ot any export
nouses and thereby wipe them
out. The British Columbia
government was "only put
ting up a sham fight" against
bootlegging. "It is one of
their principal sources of
revenue," he said.
With Gen. Clark, Mr. Black
thought the people of British
Columbia should be given a
chance to vote on the question of private import before
the government should be
given power to bring in such
a drastic measure by order in
council.
T.G. McBride, Progressive,
Cariboo, supported the bill,
which he said the people of
British Columbia as well as
ihe provincial government fa
vored.
S. W. Jacobs, Liberal, opposed the bill. In principle,
he said, it gave a provincial
government the right to impose or withdraw prohibition
without the formalty of a
plebiscite.
W. J. Uren, Assistant General
Superintendent, Quebec District,
Canadian Pacific Railway, recently
presented thirty employees of tha
system with certificates of First
Aid, covering first to fourth year
work. Mr. Uren said about thirty

Notes • Notions • Notables
Gratifying progress is shown in several
branches of the farming industry in the province by the complete statistics for 1924 just
issued from the office nf Hou. E. D. Barrow,
minister of agriculture. This is in despite of
the adverse conditions which existed during
the growing and harvest months. The total
value of the farm production for the twelve
months amounted to $60,629,224, which is
close on to ine million dollars in excess ofthe
1923 figures. At the same tinaethere was a
substantial decrease in the imports of farm
products, this amounting to 14 per cont. Exports from the province show a slight increase.
Chief increases in production are poultry,
meats and honey. Dairy production was the
largest on record. The area sown to grains
was somewhat smaller than in 1923, but the
production showed an increase in quantity
and value. Live stock of all kinds showed
gains.
Bad table manners and loud chewing are
the undoing of certain insects and grubs in
habiting sacks of peanuts imported from the
Orient. Their noisy champing, intensified by
means of a newly invented microphone, enables the customs service and pure food bureau officials to detect tlieir preseuee. Tbe
new apparatus is also useful in detecting insect pests in fruit and stored grain.
Finance Mi ister J. D. McLean has completed most satisfactory arrangements for the
redemption of au issue of bonds made for Pacific Great Eastern purposes in 1920. The
company secured a loan of $4,828,000 some
years ago, and as collateral security it pledged
$5,925,125 worth of its stock guaranteed by
the province. After the line was taken over
the province payment of this note was demanded and to meet it an issue of bonds was
sold, bearing interest at 6 per cent and maturing in five years, tbat is, this month.   The

The oldest manufactured jewelry in the
world, ivory, deer horn and stone beads used
as ornaments by cave men and women of
prehistoric Europe,was recently brought to the
United States by Alonzo W. Fond of the
Beloit, Wis., college museum, and is uow on
display there. Besides the beads, whicli were
found in the Cave La Blanchard, department
of Dordogm.-, France, the sharp blades and
stone drills with which the beads were pierced
are also included in the collection, ln order
to display the collection to the best advantage,
the various beads have been strung in the form
of a necklace similar to the kind which may
have been worn more than twenty thousand
years ago.
"Business mor-ils have improved," snid John

The provincial treasury will shortly commence to collect succession duties on old
estates following a complete audit of these.
Thisjjwill settle for all time any doubts which
have arisen as to the clearness of title owing
to the crown's lien for unpaid succession du
ties The miuister of finance in making this
aunouncement states that where the amounts
are so small as not to be worth tbe expense of
collection the department will not quibble
over the matter, but where there are large
amounts involved steps will be taken to re
cover these. The minister considers that this
method of handling the situation will effeotu
ally clear it up, and when the department is
finished all property holders will know that
their titles are clear.
The minister of mines announces the ap
poiiitment of Douglas Lay as resident mining
engineer of Mineral Survey District No. 2,
with headquarters at Hazelton. Mr Lay
succeeds John D. Galloway, recently ap
pointed proviucial mineralogist. Mr. Lay received his technical education at the Koyal
Sohool of Mines, London, England, and has
been in active practice of his profession for
twenty five years, nineteen years of whicb vere
sp-nt in British Columbia. He was manager
oi'tho Van-Roy Mining company from 1906 to
1915 and manager of Le Roy No. 2 mine at
Rossland from 1921 until the property was
sold in 1923. Duriiig the war he served with
the colors for some time until his technical
knowledge led to his being transferred to the
munitions factory at Queensferry as engineer.

sequently Nature, not he, is to
blame. Regardless ot his detect the
title ot my story stands pat. 1
still maintain that there are headlights on the front ot an automobile
Just as there are light heads behind
the steering wheel.  To Illustrate.
Jones used to buy bulbs for his
car which either threw out as much
illumination as a glow worm, or
burnt out almost immediately. It
cost him quite some money before
he found that even the ornery little
headlight bulb had to be humored
exactly as did the engine.
What Jones didn't know was tbat
every car has an Individual lighting system of either a six vclt,
twelve volt or eighteen volt plant;
that the manufacturer either connected each lamp socket to two
•separate wires (double contact
base), or used the metal framework of the car for a return, running only cne wire to each socket
(sirnie contact base).
Jones thought that motor lamps
could be bought as one buys his
house lamps. That lamps for hone
lighting were uniform ln certain
communities. That bath cellar and
parlor lights were of the same
voltage. He was right about the
home lighting, but wrong about
his automobile lamps.
One day he ran Into an accessory
store_whero the salesman knew his
business. This chap passed Jones
a few questions that got him all
bawled up:
"What, voltage ls your battery?
Do you want a single or a double
contact lamp and what candle
power? Or, do you want a B or O
lamp?" Inquired the salesman.
"I don't know," stammered Jones,
•I thought ."
' "*ut you shouldn't guess at an
important thing like tbat," snapped
the salesman! "It's fellows like you
that buy blindly and then run down
the lamp manufacturer simply because you don't know what type
lamp ls needed. You can't buy any
of our lamps until you find out what
kind your car should carry."
Jones went home furious. As
soon ag he quit seeing red he dug
up the car's Instruction book and
started to read It. Interested, he
went over to the local library and
made a thorough study of motor,
lamps ln general. Then he went
back to this salesman and bought
his lamps, apologized, thanked him
him for saving him future money,:
and installed the new lamps. Hit
lighting troubles have all dlsap>
peared. He acknowledges that hn
was at fault—that he went about
his headlight troubles with a light
head—and that the manufacturer
did make good lamps.
Reader, are you in Jones' predicament, or did you become acquainted with your lamps In time
to save money and temper? Tbat
salesman sure had the right idea.
He woke Jones up and Jones reciprocated by becoming a steady
customer,

Mt. Logan, the highest peak in the
'   •   •"*■■■ Ides, headed by Capt.
Albert H. MacCarthy, will return
in time to report to the Alpine Club.
Lake O'Hara has been painted
by the late John Singer Sargent
and by Carl Rungius and Richard
M. Kimbel, the two latter are
New York artiBtB and members of
the artist colony that summers at
Banff. Lake O'Hara threatens to
rival Lake Louise whose close neighbor it is.
The Alpine Club's main objective
this ■ year is to climb Mt. Good-
sir, the highest peak visible from
the Canadian Pacific Railway, and
the ascent will be made from a
Bub-camp.
Last year's initial Pow-Wow of
the Trail Riders of the Canadian
Rockies was held in Yoho Valley
near Field, B. C. Two days of trail
riding and social -*-'thering in a big
lodge in the evenings were enjoyed by
more than 200 members and novices,
the latter qualifying for membership,
one of the requirements of which is to
have ridden fifty miles over Canadian Rockies' trail. Dr. Charles
D. Walcott of tho Smithsonian Insti-
tulion at Washington, D. C, in the
honorary president of the Trail
Riders' order.
Several   hundred  trail  riders  are
expected to take part in this year'i
meeting, which will be held Aug.
8-10 inclusive. The start will bu
from Banff and Lake Louise by
motor to Marble Canyon where the
horses and guides will be in waiting for the three days' ride. Program
is aB follows: first night, tent camp
on Goodsir Plateau, 6,600 feet above
the valley; second night, tent camp on
the Bhore of Lake O'Hara, rivalling
Lake Louise in beauty, but of a wilder
type; third night, Tipi Camp beside
Lake Wapta and Pow-Wow held in
Sun Pance Lodge. There will be a
sing-Bong each night in camp.
Riders must bring either a sleeping-
bag o> two warm blankets. A change
of underwear and warm coat or
mackinaw for the hours around the
camp fire, is all the equipment that is
necessary. No grips will be accepted.
One pack horse for each three riders.
A word of caution, unlesB one is'pre-
Earcd to rough it ho should not ride;
ut if one delights in the feel of a
saddle and pony, he, or she, may be a
Trail Rider.
The Rocky Mountains Guides'
Association, an organization of all
the guides in thin territory, with
headquarters at Banff, is looking
after the arrangements for horses
and  guides.
