Premier Oliver Is Afraid
Under Latest  Disposition of Railway Tariff
Case That British Columbia Will Not Get Its
Full Meed of Justice
j Viotoris,    June    8 —Although
pleased tbat the matter o( freight
rates   is to   be brought up for consideration iu  tbe  bouee   and  tbat
orders have been issued to the   railway commissioners to look into tbe
matter of an equalized freight tariff
for all parts of tbe  Dominion, Hon.
John Oliver, whose figbt for equal-
iced freight rates has made bim a
national figure in tbia respect, is not
sure tbat tbe proposed steps will see
tbat British Columbia gets the - justice be has been fighting for.
After careful consideration of tbe
matter he issued the following signed statement this morning:

tullest piissibl" exd nl, snd to say
by ststute that there sball be a
maximum limit of rates no grain
•nd flour in one direction only.
"It is inconsistent and cottradic-
tory to say by order-in oouncil that
the production and expert of grain
aod flour form one of the cbief assets of the Dominion, and in order
to encourage the further develop
ment of tbe great grain growing
provinces of the west it is desirable
tbat the maximum coat of transpoj.
tition of these products sbould be
determined and knbwu, and tben to
say by legislation it is only necessary
tbat tbe cost of transportation for
export eastward be known.
"Tbe proposed statutory enactment is stronger and would override
any provision of any order io council which can be paesed.
"I   understand   that notice of a
bonse resolution favoring the enactment of legislation along tbe lines
hereinbefore mentioned has been
given, »I bave not received a copy
of the resolution, although I have
wired to bave a oopy sent to me at
our expedee. There is a great danger that the proposed legislation
may be en-toted hefore tbe voice of
the people of British Columbia can
be b-ard.
"A refusal of the government snd
parliament of Canada to exterd tbe
limit nnd maximum of the rates
upon grain and flour moving eastward to the same comnioditifs
moving westward oould only he
cjnsidered as a determination to
oootinue discrimination against tbe
westward movement of these commodities.
"We are not objecting to the retention of the Crows Nest limited
maximum rates, but we are claiming tbat if retained tbese rates should
apply proportionately to the westward as well as to tbe eastward
movement. If the legislation ae proposed is eoacted it will be open to
tbe railway companies to say to tbe
board of railway commissioners that
parliament, by refusing to apply tbe
Crowe Nest limited maximum to
tbe westward movement, intended
that tbe westward movement should
be subjeot to higher rates.
"I say, without any reservation,
tbat under tbe proposed legislation
tbe board of railway commissioners
may allow any discriminatory rates
against tbe westbound movement of
grain and flour, either for export or
home consumption, and wbile 1
have no desire or intention to in any
way reflect upon tbe bonor of the
board of railway commissioners or
of any member thereof, yet I bave
io mind that tbe majority of tbe
members of the board are tbe same
med who authorized discriminatory
rites u:ider which wo have suffered
so long and so grievously. Should
tbey in the future authorize the dis
criminatory rate with tbe proposed
legislation upon tbe statute books,
it would be hopeless to appeal to
the supreme court as a matter of
law, and I would bave no confidence
io appealing toa government wbicb
in tbe face of the protests whicb
hive heen made, would pe ist in
placing lef-ji-latinn as proposed on

"Il is quite apparent that the
prairii- provinces are not willing to

and BrUtali Columbia do not appear

"Tbere is no ioeu mountable difficulty iu applying the limited

to tbe westward movement of grain

During the next six weeks all

sible of tbe volume of each enmmod

Overestimating and underestimat
ing are equally bad—both are liable
to causs- loss and failure to get best
results. . An unexp?cted surplus
appearing after tbe estimated crop
is sold inevitably brings a slump at
the end of the season with ruinous
effect on pool prices. On tbe other
hand, an overestimate carries with
it the danger of overselling and
tends to naming too low a price in
order to move a surplus that does
not exist.
Absolute eccuracy is, of course,
impossible, but it is surprising how

The equalization of freight rntis
bas been ordered.
Tbe first tangible result of the
equalization figbt, wbich bas been
so strenuously waged by Premit r
Oliver and the Britis Columbia
government, were seen here on
Friday wben, at the earnest solicitation of Hon. Dr. King, British
Columbia's representative in ths
cabinet, an orders<in council was
passed authorizing "a thorough and
complete investigation of Ihe whole
subject of railway rates in tbe Do.
minion, with a view to the establishment of a fair and reasonable
rate structure, whicb will, under
substantially similar conditions, be
equal in its application to all persons and localities, eo as to permit
of tbe freest possible interchange ol
commodities between the various
provinces and territories ol th*
Dominion and tbe expansion of ita
trade, both foreign and domestic,
having due regard to its agriculture
and otber basic industries."
Tbe investigaeion is to be very
full, and the board of railway commissioners n given a free band witb
tbe exception of. raising rates on
grsin aod flour eastbound. Definite
instructions have been given that
the maximum established under the
Crows Nest Pass act on these commodities must not be exceeded.
Particular regard is to he paid to
the in -reused "raffic westward and
eastward through Pacific coast ports
owing to the expansion of trade
wfth the Orient, aud tbe transports*
tion of products through tbe Puna*
ma canal.
Encouragement of traffic through
Canadian ports is also stress d, and
attention ia to be paid to tbe claim
of th Maritime provinces tbat those
provinces are entitled to tbe r siora-
tiou of tbe rate basis wbioh they
enjoyed prior to 1919.
The order in council sets out "that
lbe policy of equalization of fregbt
rates sbould he recoguized to the
fullest possible extent bb being the
ouly means of dealing equitably
witb all paits of Canada, aud as being the method best calculated to
f ic; itate the interchwt'ge of comn
moriities between lhe various puis

Satisfaction is expressed in goverumant circles, according to a report from Victoria, over
the reintroduction at Ottawa of a bill to give
British Columbia control over the import of
liquor.   On two previous occasions the senate
has voted down sucb a measure, but there is
reason to believe that its attitude will be favorable to the present bill. Under botb prohi-
qition and government control the free impor
tation of liquor, which is a matter under federal jurisdiction, has gone on, and bootlegging
is thus rendered easy. Since the United States
went dry this provinoe has been used as a
depot for the import of liquors for subsequent
export, ostensibly to South America but actually to the Pacific Coast states. The situation
is one which brings the province into considerable disrepute.    By confining the right to
import liquors to the government, through the
liquor coutrol  board, it will  be   possible  to
shut off the source of supply of bootleggers

It is annouced by the Dominion bureau of
statistics at Ottawa that the annual census of
field crops and live stock for 1925 will be
made this June. These statistics are collected
jointly by the Dominfon and provincial governments by means of cardboard schedules
issued to farmers through the rural school
teachers and children. In British Cojumbia
they are mailed direct to the farmers. These
schedules call for the acreage s'lwn this year
to the principal field crops and for the numbers of farm animals alive on the farm in mid-
June. The areas thus collected form the basis
of the annual statistics of acreage and yield.
It is very important for all classes in Canada
that correct statistics of agricultural produc
tion should be published,but it is especially so
for farmers themselves, who through cooperative wheat pools and other coooperative or
ganizations are now . undertaking to market
their own wheat and other products, because
accurte statistics are essential to the fixing of
fair prices. Any farmer who has not received
the blank cardboard schedule tbrough the
rural school of his school district or otherwise
by the middle of June sbould make immediate
application for same, either to the teacher of
the public school district in which he resides,
to the provincial department of agriculture at

in the Canadian Rockies. Here the
visitor finds m-iRnificpnt penks,
awe-inspiring glaciers and delightful Alpine valleys with their magnificence of wild flowers to charm

members of thnt organization,
many of whom have climbed in different parts of   the   world, were
unanimous in declaring that Canada held no more splendid Alpine
and scenic territory than tliis.

enjoy the beauties of the Mount

which are easy enough in assent
