a year and a balf of government
control, the situation appears mucb
clearer. During tbe regime of tbe
present attorney-general, Hon. A.
M. Manson, bootlegging bas been
reduced materially in many districts
and tbe minister in bis speech last
week reported tbat tbe bootlegging
resulting from tbe existence of ex
port warehouses bad been put down

tbe cooperation of every member of
tbe .legislature in enforcing tbe
Liquor Control Act, and predicted
that within a few months if all
would assist, tbe liquor laws would
be enforced io a manher to reflect
creditably upon tbe province.
Special Oorre.pondence of The Sun.
Victoria, Nov. 8.—More notice
able than has been tbe case for severs
al years is the harmony existing in
the government ranks at present.
During the first week's nessionof
tbe legislature withering attacks
were made upon tbe Oliver administration by W. J. Bowser, tbe opposition leader, and his followers,
only to be turned back witb marked
success by the government leader
and members of bis cabinet. Aln
though tbere bad apparently been
some dissension among members of
the party, dissatisfaction exhibited
even on tbe floor of tbe bouse with
regard to certain details of policy.
The results obtained since tbe legislature last met bave unified the Lib*
erals and resulted in a solid front
being shown tbe opposition. Several
divisions bave arisen already in tbe
house, but tbe government has bad
a good majority on eacb vot *. TheBe
tests of strength served to exemplify
the fact tbat Premier Oliver bas a
Bolid party behind bim.
' Tbe financial standing of any govs
ernment is the test of its strength,
tnd the rehabilitation ot the credit of
British Columbia, through the cares
ful borrowing of Hon Jobn Hart,
minister of finance, has been largely
responsible for the growing feeling
of optimism with wbich the bond
purchaser views the offerings of the
province. Though dire calamity was
predicted by Mr. Bowser and hia
supporters, who claimed that the
loans of the past few years would
eventually cost tbe taxpayers from
15 to 20 per cent, the province hae
been saved several million dollars;
the favorable exchange conditioo
has materially lowered the interest
rateB which have to be met and
should American money depreciate
still further British Columbia loans
will take on some-hing of the nature
of good investments.
Chief among the worries of the
administration has been^tbe fate of
tbe Pacific Qreat Eastern railway
Although adverse Jeports were subs
mitted by Messrs. Sullivan, Dennis
and Hinton, tbe experts engaged to
examine tbe line and its possibilis
ties, tbe government did not appear
satisfied and a dctermidation was
reached to ontinue to. operate the
line for at least one year more.
With the appointment of Hon. Dr.
: MacLean ae minister of railways, an
opportunity has been provided for
a minister to devote more time to
the affairs of the line than t'-e pre-
mier was able to give, with bis
manifold duties. The new head of
the department favors the completion of the road to Prince Oeorge,
and next spring will no doubt see
construction commenced on tbe last
lap. Hon. Dr. MacLean also proposed to bave a thorough survery
prepared of the natural resources of
the country contiguous to the rail
way, so that colonization work may
be carried on successfully.
The most difficult situation which
this  or  any   other government of
British Columbia has   had  to face
is that pertaining to tbe administra
tion of tbe liquor laws. After nearly

The Granby Company
Bonds Another Property
The Granby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting & Power Company, Ltd.,
has takeu a bond on the Outsider
group of claims, eitua'ted at Maple
Bay, about 35 miles down tbe Port
land Canal from Stewart, and active
development work is to start at
once.
In tbis connection, Vince Lade,
James Lade* and Monty Howe, of
Stewart, bave taken a contract to
drive a 200-foot raise for an air
shaft, and also to do other work in
the form of tunneling, with a view
to develop the ore bodies already to
a great extent opened up.
Tbe property, which is situated
within one mile of the beacb, was
located by William Noble and G. M.
Collison in 1903, and was sold by
them to tbe Brown-Alaska company
in 1905. This company, after doing
considerable development work,
commenced active mining operations
and shipped 14,500 tons of ore to
tbe Hadley smelter, Princeof Wales
island, Alaska.
About 1908 new interests acquired
tbe property and beld it for a period
of years, aud in 1917 spent something like $35,000 in development
work, driving a new tunnel on tbe
south end of the vein, giving a total
depth to the ore of over 400 feet.
The second annual provincial potato fair will be held in
Grand Forks from November
27 to December 2.
On account of the deep interest shown in the first annual potato fair held last year
in Chilliwack the department
has decided to give prizes for
table stock as weil as for seed
potatoes this year.
It is hoped that the various
agricultural organizations and
all ethers interested will cooperate with the department
to the fullest extent and help
make this fair a success. A
series of lectures on the potato industry will also be
given at the same time.
A general letter from the sales department of the Okanagan United
Growers showed tbe apple situation
on October 26 to be as follows.

MQVEMEKT
Expected That MoreThan
Last Year's Total Will
Pass Through Port of
Montreal Before Close
of Navigation
Near East; in consequence
there has been a much smailer
amount of debt liquidation
than was anticipated earlier
in the season. Latterly, however, there has been a perceptible weakening in the tendency to hold grain, und this,
taken in conjunction with the
marketing of a fair proportion of the crop to meet current expenses, has led to a
demand for transportation
and storage that wonld have
been extremely difficult to
cope with at all if the farmers
had placed their grain on the
uiarkat in larger quantities at
one time. This season, up to
the middte of October, over
116,000,000 bushels of grain
had been handled by the port
of Montreal, and it is expected -fey grain exporters and
shippers that last year's total
of 138,453,980 bushels will
be surpaased before the close
ol navigation in December.
At Vancouver the grain hand,
ling plant will be taxed to its
utmost, and at the Great
Lakes ports the gjain storage and handling facilities are
likewise fully employed.

New Hog Grading
Effctive October 30
The regulations under whicb the
official grading of hogs will be undertaken have been approved by the
Council as submitted after final
agreement by all interests represented by the joint swine committee.
The swine graders appointed through
.civil service commission following
the grading examinations' have reported for duty to the Dominion
livestock branch.
Hon. W. R. Motherwell, Dominion minister, of agriculture, announces that the hog«gradiog regulations will be made effective on
October 30, 1922. In the meantime
the new hog-grading staff is being
giveo a thorough course of instruction at tbe Toronto stockyards, so
that tbe official gradidg as established will be uniformly applied at all
stockyards and abattoirs in Canada.
It took six days to make
the world and you can't
change it in one.
Threshing reports receive d
during October fully bear out
the bright hopes of Septem
ber   that the volume of this
season's   grain   crop   would
equal that of any prior   year,
and the farmer is now able to
market his grain at prices not
out of line with the average
of pre-war years. These favorable elements in thesiuation
however, arc to a large extent
offset by the fact that the net
proceeds of his crop  will not
be such as to allow any material  reduction  in the grain
grower's immediate and pressing liabilities.  Although the
cost of many items of expenditure has declined   slightly
from that of last year, that of
labor has been high, and this
has been   especially true of
the   cost   of  threshing.    In
tuany districts   difficulty has
been experienced in holding
men long enough to complete
harvest      operations,     even
though higer wages were paid
Nevertheless,   despite   these
difficulties,   the   amount    of
work which has been actually
performed   by  the     farmers
themselves in the handling of
so large  a crop,  and in fall
ploughing, so far as has been
already   done, is   surprising.
They   were   assisted in their
work by fine   weather, which
prevailed   well into October
and enabled many, even at the
end of tha month, to devote
their time to preparing their
land for another   crop rather
than to marketing their grain.
One factor in   the case was
the belief that prices would
rise considerably as  a result

World's Potato Crop
Is 128 Per Cent of
Production in 1921
Washington, Nov. 7.—Production
of rye, barley and potatoes for all
countries reportidg is larger than for
the same countries last year, tbe department of agriculture announced
today. Rye production for sixteen
countries is placed at 101 per cent
of production for the same countries
in 1921, but only 91 per cent of tbe
average yield for 1909-13.
Production in tbe United States
and Canada is 163 per cent of the
1921 crop, while production in European countries is only 92 per cent.
The barley crop of the United States
and Canada this yer is 128 per cent
of the 1921 crop and for fifteen Eu«
ropean countries it is 103   per cent.
The potato crop is repirted larger
in nearly all countries, total pro
duction being placed at 129 percent
of that for the same countries in
1921 and 101 per cent of the 1909-
13 average.
Wheat production iu 1922,accord
ing to latest estimates, is 99 per
cent of tbe 1921 yiold, being 109
per cent in North America and HI
per cent in Kuropo. Condition of
the new wheat crop is roporred good
in Argentina, Australia and   India,
Copper Sules
New York,Nov. 6.—Copper sales,
foreign and domestic, by American
producers, nre estimated to have
been around 130,000,000 pounds
during September. This compares
with sales estimated at 100,000,000
during August, 125,000,000 ln July.
Ho.000,000 in June and 210,000,-
000 in May.
It is estimated that foreign sales
by Copper Export Association and
independents came to between 50,»
000,000 and 55,000,000 pounds of
130,000,000 sold.
Stocks of refined copper October 1
are estimated to have been around
250,000,000 pounds including metal
in hands of Copper Export Association, which is placed at 140,000,000
Shipments to consumers during
September,.foreign and domestic, by
American producers are estimated to
have been around 150,000,000
pounds, making an average for tbe
last two months of about 165,000,-
000 pounds, ae large as for any similar peace period in the history of
the industry.

JSiews of the City
J. B. Hayes, of tbe North addition, sustained a serious accident on
Satuday by falling off a wagon and
breaking a bone in bis neck. It was
at first thought that his neck had
been broken, as be became partially
paralyzed. He was removed to the
Grand Forks hospital, and Dr,
Kingston wired to Spokane for a
specialist. The two doctors made a
successful operation and extracted a
Bmall piece of broken bone from the
neck. At present the patient is apparently making good progress toward complete recovery.
Tuck Harper, who has been cooking io a construction camp on the
Cascade Hossland highway all summer, returned to tho city today.
This link of the trausproviucinl
highway is now in condition so that
cars can pass over it, but it will nut
be officially inspected and opened
to traffic before next spring. The
road iB forty miles long from Cascade to Rossland; has an excellent
grade; is of double width, 14 to 16
feet, and passes over two mountain
summits.

Patriotism more than saluting thc flag.
One or the recent "demonstrations" to trap
the unwary investor is that of the man with a
cheap substitute for gasoline—something that
he says he can produce for a few cents a gallon. The "inventor" fills the tank of an automobile half full of water and adds his mysterious fluid. The car runs, for what he added
was wood alcohol. Tho chemist is a good m an

To "strike oil" in Bolivia, according to a
handbook of the department of commerce, one
needs no drill rig. Oil seeps through the soil
in many places and forms in pools. The na
tives dip it up as they would water and carry
it away to use for domestic purposes. Such
stories of wealth are as alluring to the present
generation as the stories of South American
gold and silver mines were to the Spaniards
of four hundred years ago.
losses has been so large and the araouut involved is so great that the insurance companies
are considering the necessity of some form of
protection against this increased hazard

care should be exercised in the use of electric

Tlie Paris London air service has an ingeni
ons instrument for measuring the depth of fog
above the starting poiut at Croydon or Abbe
ville, and  so to determine  whether there is
clear,  dry  weather a few  hundred  feet up.
The instrument, which is based on   the  prop
erty of human hair of constracting sharply on
passing from wet to dry air, consists of a hair
attached to a trigger that holds a ring.   The
instrument is sent aloft with toy balloons on
a string; as soon as it reaches dry air the hair
contracts, pulls the trigger, and down  comes
the ring on the string.

Various domestic electrical devices are being multiplied, the ingenuity of the inventor
being backed up by the advertising activities
of electrical comphnies which seek to increase
the use of their current. The papers and maga
zines are full of advertisements of electric
toasters, plate warmors, hair curlers, electric
irons and sewing and washing machinas. The
interest of the makers is chiefly in disposing
of the device and they are not specially inter
ested in seeing that proper installation is secured. Often the connections are made by
the puchaser without any knowledge of electrical conditions, and they result in serious fire
hazards. Heaters are often installed on electro circuits the wires of which are already so
fully loaded that any codsiderable increase of
the current is likely to set fire to the property.
A great many fires have resulted from leaving
electric irons on the ironing board without
turning off the current.   The number of such
What is land hunger? Pecuniary interest?
Oh, no. A struggle for oxistence? The cities
seemed to oftor the popular specific for that,
not the frontier.
No. Land hunger is compounded of the
hopes of the centuries, of villein and crofter
clinging to the manorial landshare of Sir Edwin Sandys with the brain, of tho trudging,
tree-blazing George Washington brain, of
trudging-tree blazing George Washington, of
veterans of 1776 with warrants, of Mexican
survivors w th scrip, oi Yazoo opportunities,
Connecticut reserve offerings, of pre emption,
squatter sovereignty, homesteaditig, of a vast
army of the vigorous vanguard of the raee,
moved mightily forward not by necessity or a
hope of wealth, but by a vision that is born of
traditional desire and commands men not to
the measure of dollars and cents, but to the
throbbing drumbeat of a mightly instinct of
dominion.
It will not respond to the direction of senti
ment,  nor can adventure  lure or  necessity
drive it.
I know the poets paint for the pioneer a
picture with warmth of sun, the scent of flow
ers, the caress of gentle winds, the fragrance
of new mown hay, the stimulation of rain upon
a dusty field, the song of bi.ids, the satisfac
tion of achievement, the comforts of earned
repose, but I doubt the efficacy of the advertisement.
I know that the economists balance birth
rate against available land areas and graph
population pressures to prove that necessity
is in command.
But it is not so. The pioneer is moved by
something more than economic necessity
greater than adventure, deeper than p:etry,
that is to say, he is possessed by the magic of a
vision born of an age-old desire—to have and
to hold.
The echo of it trembled in Touchstone's
nimble brain, as he surveyed and presented

When your telephone is left accidentally off the hook, it registers the same
as a call at central. If the operator gets
no response to her "Number, Please,"
the number is handed over to the repairing forces as being out of order. All this
involves tests, reports and time. In the
meantime, no one gets you on your telephone.
"Off the hook, is a very common cause
of interruption to telephone service. By
the exercise of care in this connection
you will protect your service and avoid
inconvenience to yourself and others.

trestle is 2,714 ft. long, 70 ft. high.
and has in it 1,800,000 ft. board
m»asure of lumber, as well as 27,000
ft. of piling. It is estimated that
it has taken 800,000 tons of material to make the fill.
The   present   bridge   presents   •
safe and perfect means of transit.

Montreal—A press dispatch from
Calgary crediting to the secretary
of the Federated Shop Trades there
a statement to the effect that the
C.P.R. and certain other railways
had knowledge of the conciliation
board's award some days before it
was filed with the department of
labor and ih consequence thereof
had paid the reduced rates of wages
as set by the conciliation board,
prior to the announcement of tha
award by the department of labor,
was brought to the attention of
George Hodge, assistant general
manager of the C.P.R., Eastern
lines, who conducted the case for
the railways before the board of
conciliation   and   investigation.
Mr. Hodge denied most emphatically the correctness of the statement. He said furthc- that as far
as the C.P.R. was concerned it had
no knowledge of the report until it
was received at the company's offices on September 4, and that instructions to restore rates of pay
which had previously been put into
effect as from July 16, were issued
under date of September 6, making
the reduced rates effective as from
August 16.

Moose Jaw—"One hundred pei
cent more grain has been handled by
the Canadian Pacific Railway up to
the middle of October this year
than ever before for the same period. That will give you an idea of
the way the grain is being taken out
of the country" said Mr. Chas.
Murphy, general manager of Western Lines of the Canadian Pacific
Railway.
Ho expressed himself very well
pleased with the movement of the
crop throughout the whole West.
When asked as to the possibility of
a grain blockade, Mr. Murphy stated
lhat the Canadian Pacific was accepting all grain that was being offered. He pointed out that on one
day over four million bushels had
been taken out of Fort William and
Port Arthur. Mr. Murphy pointed
out that there was difficulty in getting bottoms on the lakes to Uke the
grain out, but the elevators wer*
far from being full, and the Canadian Pacific still had the big Trans-
cona elevator empty.
Already Mr. Murphy stated there
was n large quantity of grain being
shipped out from the head of the
lakes by the all rail route. He declared that he could see no grain
blockade in sight
Mr. Murphy pointed out tbat the
Canadian Pacific had moved 14,000
cars off the Saskatchewan division
of the railway. This was five thousand more cars of Saskatchewan
wheat than had been moved in tiie
same period in any year.
He also pointed out that even
with the unprecedented grain movement the Canadian Pacific was moving from 250 to 276 carloads per
day from the Western coal mines.
"There was thirteen thousand tons
moved yesterday," he declared. 1
was here three weeks or a month ago
and at that time I stated we were
moving 250 to 276 cars of eoal a
day, and the movement has been
kept at that ever since. We realise,
he declared, that the wheat can be
moved during the oold weather and
people can live, but if the cold
weather comes and there is no coal
there will be great suffering in the
••entry, and possibly wots*.
Never count your chickens
before they return from a
friend's garden.
A wise man will make more
opportunities than  he finds.
