OF AN ELECTION
ictoria, Marcb 4.—Conservative
rumors of a provincial election this
year or next year were denied by
tbe provincial government laet nigbt
tbrongh a speech by Attorney Gen
eral Manson before Esquimalt Lib"
erals.
Tbe next election, Mr. Manson,
declared emphatically, would ts.t
come in 1926 or in 1927. The gov
erom nt, he said,was secure in office
Premier John Oliver
Of British Columbia, who presents a
demand on behalf of that province for
the return to provincial control of
14,000,000 acres of land in Peace
river. This was part of the railway
tract handed over to the Dominion at
the time of confede-atinn, which Brit
ish Columbia now wants back to use
in subsidizing railway construction in
tbe Pence river district.
Lady Byng Inspired by Rockies
m
Lord
olHnS on the famous
nil course
"M° one naa any r'J?ut t0 speak with
1 v authority of Canada who has
seen only the East or the West."
It was Her Excellency the Lady
Byng of Vimy who made this statement recently at a luncheon of the
Ottawa Women's Canadian Club
shortly after her return from a trip
across and through Canada over a
matter of some eighty thousand
miles. Accompanying His Excellency
the Governor General, Lady Byng
had visited practically all parts of
Canada meeting at every stopping
place the warm welcome Canadians
everywhere reserve for "Byng of
Vimy" and his charming Lady and,
not less important, becoming acquainted with Canada's unrivalled
and never-ending succession of sceaic
glories.
"I feel I have some plea to came to
speak to you on Canada",said Her
Excellency. "I come as a sort of advertising agent to beg.of you that
you go west and visit there. I know
•Aa terrible -mention of exnense but
let me tell you. lt is well worth it.
I do so regret that people will go to
the South of France or some seaside
resort, rather than view the beauties
of their own Canadiaa Rockies and of
Vancouver Island."
Lady Byng described her first view
of the Rockies. "It was so great an
Inspiration. I cannot convey the
beauty and wonder of that undulating
line rising out of the mist; that endless, unending chain of marvellous
mountains and the valleys below in
colours of acquamarine and emeralds."
The opinion of Her Excellency
regarding Western Canada is not that
of a mere passerby. With the Governor-General she has been all over
the country, going by motor where
the rail and river do not penetrate.
"There are those," said Lady Byng,
"who visit Canada landing at Quebec,
coming on to Montreal, proceeding to
Ottawa, and Toronto, wno have gone
away giving their view on Canada.
Such views are always defective even
if sometimes they are not wholly
unfair and unjust. Canada's bigness
is evident on the map, but its actual
size is only realized through direct
contact and acquaintanceship."
The iaea of interchanging visits
east and west is developing the
attitude so admirably taken by the
wife of the Governor-General should
speed the movement and give it
wider impetus.
In our Dominion different localities
have different interests and problems,
and nothing: but a close and sym-
such a poor showing as in  tbe laBt
session of the legislature
Four Conservative members had
walked out of the chamber rather
t an vote with tbeir party in its
attack on him, Mr. Manson said,
and four more had threatened to
do so.

to secure   action   on  it will be left
undone," the  premier   asserted   in
announcing his intention of going to
Ottawa to ask ior tbe return  of tbe
Peace river block to provincial con
trol for  railway  subsidy   purposes.
He made it clerr that the railway
land subsidy po'isy bad been misconstrued by Conservative British
Columbia members in the Canadian
bouse of commons.
■'Leon Ladner stated in the house
recently that if the Canadian Na-
tioual railways took over the Pacific
Great Eastern and opened up tbe
Peace river country it would secure
the Peace river block and 16,000,000
acres of land besides from this province," tbe premier said.
"That is not our plan. We do not
propose to give the Peace river
block as well as the 16,000,000acres
set aside by tbe legislature as a subsidy. If we get tbe Peace river block
it would be made available as a subs-
sidy in lieu of Ihe lands set aside for

FROM EVERYWHERE
David E. Brown, Tl yean of ag*,
and J. A. Fuller-ton, 81 years oM,
died at Vancouver, B.C. on Mm sane
day, February 10. They were two
of the best known figures connected
with the early history of Vancouver
and the construction of the Canadian
Pacific Railway. Brown wae the
first agent appointed by the company at Port Moody in 1886 while
Fullerton served thirty years rn
Montreal with the old Allen Line,
going to Vancouver in 1888.
Her Excellency, Lady Byng
pathetic study of cause and effect will
solve the difficulties which confront
the country as a whole. Books and
newspapers assist somewhat in bringing into closer touch the eastern,
central and western regions of the
Dominion. But not until the people
living east visit the west and the
people ln the west visit the older
provinces — visit them with the
intention of becoming acquainted
with the life and ideals of the native
born, will any degree of intimacy or
understanding be reached.
The lesson of Lady Byng's speech,
then, is for Canadians, when they go
travelling en holiday, to extend their
knowledge of the structure and
economic life of the people in other
parts of the country than their own
and to see for themselves the beauty
of Canadian scenery which travellers
from other lands say is unexcelled the
world over and of wMch every
province has its full share — see
Canada first, and see it from Halifax
to Victoria.
For the first time in the history
of moving pictures, the Canadian
timber wolf is to be filmed on his
native heath. Frank Dtrudera, big
game hunter and trapper, and Joseph 3. Sartori, both of Brooklyn
passed through Montreal recently
on their way to Fabre near the
Kipawa River and Lake Termscam-
ing where they Intend to hunt, trap
and film the timber wolves which
are the scourge of ttie game of that,
country.
A little, gray-haired lady, nearly
seventy years of age and totally
blind, arrived from Swift Current
at Winnipeg. Given into the care
of Stationmaster Ruff of the Canadian Pacific Railway, to transfer to
the outgoing train, she was made
comfortable and assured that she
would have no other changes to
make. Mr. Ruff also ascertained
that she was to be met by her son
at Toronto and assured the feeble
passenger that she would be looked
after and every care given her. "It I
had not had faith in you boys, I
would not have taken the journey,"
came the tribute from her.
The Canadian Pacific Social and
Athletic Club of Regina contributed
$75 to the Leader-Post Christmas
Cheer Fund.   Of this sum $25 was
to the OW Folks' Home at Wolseley;
$25 to the Orange Orphanage at In-
"an   Head;   $25   to   the   Salvation
-iy Girls'  Home.    On  the first
of the Christmas School holi-
'anta Claus arrived at the Re-
. Station on a C.P.R. train and
distributed «»andy to 8,600 children
who were alCo taken to various theatres.   All this was arranged by of-
of the Serial Clt*.
The Iron in the Honey
Makes It Healthy Food
There is an old saying tbat some
men are tough enough to chew
nails. It is not likely tbat iron in
this fnrm will ever become a popu*
Iar item of diet, even tbough media
cal men tell us that |a certain amount
of iron in our food is necessary for
bodily health. Fortunately, Nature
knew about this long before man
ever thought about it, and the iron
that is essential for the dourishment
is found io sufficient quantities and
in digestible form in certain natural
foods. Honey is one of these, and it
is difficult to imagine a more pleasant method of supplying tbe body
with iron than by eating boney.
Plants are able to feed upon the
minerals in the soil, but man ba
more delicate digestiAe apparatus
and can not resort to such first-band
methods for supplying hiB mineral
requirements. Tbe nectar wbich is
distilled by the flowers of certain
plants is comparatively rich in iron;
tbis in turn is gathered up tbe bei I
and in the it is changed into boney.
The darker honeys are as a rule
richer in iron, although all boney
can supply it in sufficient quantities
for ordinary health purpose.
['Honey is an inex2uustible iron
mine,"says the French writer, Alin
Caillas, in his book, The Treasures
in a Drop of Honey. "Iron, so use
ful to plants, has filtered into tbe
nectar, tben into the honey, by the
aid of the bee. It is tbere usually in
combinations of phosphates, in a
very soluble, easily digestible, easliy
assimilable form. It supplies the
dessert required by our iron-hungry
system, an excelhnt rebuilder of
physically and nervously run down
organs."

By 1950 London will bo a city of 11,000,-
000, according to Lord Ashfield in his report
to the directors of the underground railway of
the world's metropolis. The population today
is 7,5000,000. Twenty years ago the average
person used the underground 158 times a
year, but todny each person uses it 460 times
a year, according to Lord Ashfield s study.
The transportation lines in London, including
the busses and tramways, carry 3,500,000,000
passeng rs annually. Lord Ashfield was at
one time general manager of the Detroit electric railways.
As a man grows older he spends  less  time

The premier of Ontario recently annonnced
that a deposit of haliuni had been discovered
at Inglewood, about forty miles northwest of
Toronto. "The province has taken over the
helium rights at Inglewood," declarad the
premier, "and I am informed that they
have the highest, content of this gas of
any in the British empire. The wells have
been turned over to the University of Taronto
research work.' Secrecy respecting the discovery, the premier said, had been maintained
"because of the tremendous importance of the
find."
duction of sets this year is 2,000,000, in which J
7,775,000 pounds of copper will be used.
It was after the tornado. "So when yon
came from your visit," said a reporter to a
man whose residence had been carried away,
"you found.your house totally demolished."
"Yes," an6A\ered the latter, 'an', do yon know.
I had a sort of a feelin' all along that we
should of stayed home."
To make the internal organs of the body
opaque so that they can e photographed by
X-rays, scientists are seeking a special kind
stain. It has already been discovered that
injection f a special oil will make the lung
cavities .susceptible to registering on X ray
exposure and this, it is believed, will be of
great aid in diagnosing tuberculosis.
Composition is the most effective means of
eradicating   slang, says Ramsay MacDonald,
former prime'minister of England.   "Youths
practiced in writing down their thoughts will
very rarely practice slang for their conversation," he declared. "Slang is one of the  most
certain signs of decadent minds. It is not only
murder of good English, but it murders truth
itself. The use of slang is a fraud npon yourself.  You imagine you are clever and impressive, but as a matter of fact you are exactly
the opposite.    It is a fraud on your friends
because you  mislead them.    You pretend to
tell them what you are thinking  when as a
matter of fact you  are doing nothing of the
kind.    It   is   the   resort   of   the   lazy   and
slovenly."

There is no danger of Hon. Charles Dunning being defeated in the forthcoming Regina by-election. He is to:> good looking for

It it wasn't for tacks and nails in the road,
tire expense wouldn't be near so high notwith-
standig the rubber monopoly.   As an  experiment an Idaho conceru hung a big  elecfric
magnet from the rear of one of its trucks,
supplied it with current from  a storage  battery,  then  swept the  roads  near its plant,
gathering up a surprising lot  of loose  junk.
Afterward the state highway department re
peated the experiment, and from seven miles
of slab road on the Yellowstoue trail the
magnet gathered up 603 pounds of nails,bolts
tacks and similar scrap which punctures tires

On Procrastination
Youth is a drunken noisy hour,
With every folly fraught;
Put man, by age's chast'ning power,
Is sober'd into thought.
Then we resolve our faults to shun,
And shape our course anew;
But ere the wise reform's tegun
Life closes on our view.
The travellers thus who wildly roam,    v
Or heedlessly delay,
Are left, when they should reach tueir home1

At least 600 boys will paai
through the Burnside Lodge, the
Western Ontario distribution centre
in Woodstock, Ontario, to become
farm workers under the Salvation

Lee also stated that the first party,
numbering fifty, have all been

One of the most important sessions of the

called to order at 8 o'clock last night y Mayor
Hutton, to decide upon the location of a wagon bridge across the Kettle river and to consider the request of the Kettle Valley line for
a franchise to use Third etreet, fr m the river
to Observation mountain, as a right of way for
the North Fork extension of the road. Tbe
room was crowded with interested ratepayers,
nearly all of whom expressed their views on
the questions under consideration. All the
members of the council were present. Fourth
street was chosen for the bridge, and the
council decided to graot the Kettle Valley
line franchise. Work on the road will commence on or about the 1st of April, aud will
be continued until Franklin camp, fifty miles
north of city, is reached. A $4000 station ls to

"Mountain Glissade" is Gaining Popularity
FROM EVERYWHERE
Salmon exports from British
Columbia amounted to 1,571,000
cases, the record for several yeara
past. Shipments in 1924 were 1,525,-
000 cases; 929,000 cases in 1923;
794,000 cases in 1922 and 939,000
cases in 1921.
For the first time in Canada, a
sport known as the "mountain glis-
Bade," was performed at Revelstoke,
B.C., on Friday, January 29, before
hundreds of visitors to the start of
Revelstoke's twelfth winter carnival.
"Glissading" consists of flying down
rough uneven mountain sides on skit.
\b
From August 1, 1925, to January
81, 1926, 8,182,198 bushels, or about
one and a half per cent, of the 196,-
6.17,112 bushels of grain shipped by
thc Canadian Pacific Railway went
by the all-rail route. About one-
eip-hth, or 30,216,134 bushels travelled through the port of Vancouver
and the balance of 85 per cent waa
shipped via Fort William.

winning Descent Race at Revelstoke.
High up on the wooded slopes of
Mount Revelstoke a long thin
line of black figures is silhouetted
against a background of snow. Suddenly a shot rings out and the thin
black line breaks into a series of
energized units. It is the start of
Revelstoke's latest innovation in the
long list of thrilling sport spectacles
which hundreds of visitors enjoyed recently during the city's twelfth
annual carnival. This latest winter
pastime is known as the "mountain
flit-sadc" and was performed at the
tevelstoke   carnival   for   the   fii*st
tirre in Canada.
Two thousand feet below the starting point, crowding the street ends oi
the little town, visitors and citizens
alike watcheu those alert black
figures as tney sprang away irom the
bluff, some to the right, some to the
left, some straight ahead, but all
downward, downward toward the
distant goal within the town. Dropping swiftly down the first open expanse of snow tho figures disappeared
into the v/ooded depths of the first
ravine only to emerge seconds later
here and there, helter-skelter, through
the trees and snow.
There were spills a-plenty as down
the mountain Bide plunged these
mad ski-shod figures, facing unpre-
mediated hazards every foot of the
way. But skiers spill only to pick
themselves up again, taking no count
of bruises and scratches until the
wild race is over.
Gaining momentum in their downward course, the skiers veered sharply
from trees and stumps, leaping
through the wooded patches, gliding
gracefully across the frozen benches
of the hills, ignoring the kindly incline
of the mountain road which they
crossed and re-crossed in their direct
descent. Figure after figure used its
repeated levels as a take-off to carry
them forward and downward in their
mad rush through the frosty air.
Suddenly all the figures were lost to
view as they neared the foot of the
mountain and disappeared into the
adjacent forest of spruce and pine
and balsam. The crowds in the city
streets converged to one point where
the race was to finish. Then a shout
went up as far across the railway
tracks and rounding the last foothill, a
Bwiftly glissading figure flashed into
view, and Nels Nelson, Revelstoke's
famous ski king, glided swiftly into
the city street, down through the
avenue of cheering crowds and past
the  tape.
In exactly five minutes this intrepid world champion ski-jumper
had dropped more than 2,000 feet
covering approximately two miles in
his swift descent. Running him a
close second came Ernest Field, another Revelstoke boy who glided
Sast the tape two minutes after
telson. One after another the glissading skiers returned while the crowd
lingered to give each one his mead of
applause in a sport wnich is fast
becoming a fine art at the various
resorts throughout Europe and which
has been introduced in Canada by
progressive members of the Revelstoke Ski Club.
Under the auspices of the French
Government, the French universities

Empress of Scotland.
Pulp and paper exports from Canada during 1925 were valued at
$154,556,951, as compared with $139,-
491,469 for the previous year. Newsprint production for 1925 was estimated at 1,616,000 tons, as compared with 1,352,994 tons for 1924.
This is twice the newsprint production of 1918.
With glorious weather prevailing,
a large gathering witnessed the
opening of the tenth annual Banff
Winter Carnival on February 3.
"Queen Gabrielle" regally entered

skating, hockey and hikes featured
the big winter sport tournament.
ISRAEL-THE WORLD'S HOPE!
Can Christiandom Be Saved Without the Jew?
"FOR I am not ashamed of the gospel
of Christ; for it is the power of Cod
unto salvation to every one that believeth;
to the Jew first,and also to the Centile."
Romans 1:16.
MODERN JEWRY is awakening to its need of a vital, life-j§iving religion.
Ite gerly awaits the manifestation of Messiah and thoughtful Jewish writers
and preachers are turning to Christ in a manner never before witnessed in
history.   Says Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, of New York:
*J'JESUS WAS1' I nccrpt this defrpite^the notion I had been led to believe earlier
in my life—that Jesus was a myth and never existed. I tell you, and I will repeat, these
words to every Jew in the world, if ne d be, 'Jesus was,'and we must accept this fact
at once."
FOR 1900 years the orthodox Jew has been protected ^against the false
Trinitarian theology cc he rning Jesus Christ, but the time has come for a great
awakening of knowledge concerning the personality and work of Jesus Cerist,
both during the day.s.of His flesh and in the now dawning days of His power
and glory when His Ki tgdom is being set up.   Hear

January 6, an automobile bus, laden
with passengers, was driven through
both gates. The driver explained
that his windshield was frozen. The
second case occurred February 3
when a car ran past just as tha
gates were being lowered. Both

Beatty, K.C, President of .the Canadian Pacific Railway, stated that the

Beatty declared that a reduction of
25 per cent, or (11,000,000 might
be brought about if the government
expenses were cut. The Canadian
Pacific Railway had reduced its expenses by over double that amount
In one year, and the railway company was not as large as the Dominion of Canada.

The visit to the United States, at
this time, of Michael S. Pereforko-
vltsh, manager of the live-stock department of the Soviet Russian government, Prof. Michel R IvanofC of
a Moscow agricultural unlvorstty,
and N. N. Klebnik, official interpreter, carries with it all the significance of a step to progressive and
modern methods in the new Russia.
According to these three representatives of the Soviet government,
Russia now has about 80,000,000
sheep and hundreds of millions of
head of other live stock.
Rambouillet rams have been purchased by them, not to increase the
number of sheep, but to improve
quality*. It ls expected that a better
grade ot wool will be produced by
crossing of breeds. In this connection, sheep shearing machinery was
bought to supplant the old-time hand
blades. This ln itself is expected to
increase the wool crop about 7%, not
because the machine shears closer
than hand blades, but because lt removes tbe wool evenly and in an
unbroken blanket, leaving no ridges
on the sheep.
Russia is anxious to enlarge its
textile business with a view to pro-
<|q-*iPt Ita own wool for manufac
turing purposes. Another committee
from thut country has been studying
textile mills ln Pennsylvania and
Massachusetts.
Admittedly, there is great need ln
Russia for farming implements as
the Russian farmer now has practically all the land he wants, but is
unable to develop all of his ground
because of lack of farm machinery.
Another great need is dairy machinery such as milking machines,
cream separators, pasteurizing machinery, horse and cow clipping machines and butter-making machinery.
M. Pereferkovitsh said he Intended
to buy more than 6,000 sheep, but
owing to misinformation as to the
best buying season, he arrived in this
country too late to get all he wished,
and so expects that next year as
many aB twenty men will be sent to
this country to make these purchases.
Russia is doing everything possible
to improve farming and dairying
methods. Graduates of agricultural
schools are teaching farmers and
dairymen modern methods and the
use of modern machinery.
Many things point to Russia as
one of the world's great future
sources ot dairy products.
