Extracts from Premier
King's speech at .Vancouver:
This Liberal government in
four years has done its utmost to weld together our
sister nations within the empire by means of that most
practical instrument of friendship and close relationships—
It is an axiom of Canadian
Liberalism that unity is one
thing we must ever keep before our eyes—one condition
which we must ever have in
mind when framing-federal
We have adopted a policy of
moderation in tariff matters,
neither high protection nor
free trade. We believe such a
policy will tend to unite these
diversified elements in our
country, to cause our people
to forget their differences and
work for happiness and prosperity.
Our trade figures show that
our efforts to secure foreign
business have been successful
—I was going to add more
successful than we had dared
to hope. In 1922 we had a
favorable trade balance of
$37,000,000. For the fiscal
year ended last March it had
reached $276,000,000. The
government can legitimately
claim credit for this increase.
We Liberals have tried and
will try to see that our foreign trade grows to greater
and greater proportions-
We are convinced that our
policies have brought closer
together the many diverse
elements in our couutty. We
are equally convinced that the
policies adopted by rhe Liberal government will help
materially to bring together
diverse elements of our cm

The President Harding International Good-Will Memorial located in Stanley Park, Vancouver and erected
by Kiwanis International through the voluntary subscriptions of its 96,000 members in the United States
and Canada, waa unveiled by John H. Moss, president
Kiwanis International on September 16th in the presence
of a large gathering of both United States and Canadian
government officials and members of Kiwanis.
The memorial was designed by Charles Marega,
a well known Italian sculptor of Vancouver. When the
scheme was first decided upon, it was the intention of the
American Kiwanis Clubs to raise the funds on their Bide
of the border and to present the memorial to Canada.
Canadian Kiwanis, however, insisted upon contributing
toward*- the fund and the memorial was thus erected by
the joint effort* of the United States and Canadian
At the unveiling ceremony, the Dominion Government was represented by Hon. Dr. J. H. King and Dr.
G. T. Harding, brother of the late president. United
States Kiwanis was represented by International
President John H. Moss, and International Past Presidents Victor S. Johnson and Edmund IJ. Arras. The
Canadian Pacific Railway was represented by Frank W.
Peters, General Superintendent at Vancouver. Several
of the United States delegates stayed over at Banff and
Lake Louise and other points in the Canadian Pacific
Rockies before proceeding to Vancouver. The memorial
itself is throughout a made-in-Canada product, being
designed by Canadians and made of Canadian materials
and oy Canadian labor.
Tae rite of the memorial ia the spot where the late
President Harding made his last public speech, when just
before he died in 1923 he visited Canada. Wart en G.
Harding, late president cf the U. S. A. was a chartered
member of the Kiwanis Club at Marion, Ohio, his home
An extract from thc speech made by the Chief Executive
of the United States on that occasion, written in bronze
for the memorial, and the possible text of many a murmured prayer of hope of the cosmopolitan tourist who
reads it as he passes through the park, is as follows:
"What an object lesson of peace is shown today by
ouf* two countries to all the world. No grim-faced fortifications mark our frontiers, ne huge battleships patrol
our dividing waters, no stealthy spies lurk our tranquil
border hamlets. Only a scrap of paper, recording hardly
more than a simple understanding safeguards lives and
properties on the Great Lakes, and only humble mile-
posts mark the inviolable boundary-line for thousands of
miles through farm and forest.
"Our protection is in our fraternity, our armor jb our
faith, and the tie that binds, more firmly each year, is
ever-increasing acquaintance and comradeship through
interchange of citizens; and the compact is not perishable
parchment, but of fair and honorable dealing, which,
God grant, shall continue for all time."
The memorial, which is known as "The Altar of
Peace," has been referred to as the only material symbol
of fortification, outside of mileposts, to outline tne invisible demarkation of ths thousands of miles of border
line separating the two countries from the Atlantic to the

The museum of Versailles now has the ring
with which M. Clemenceau sealed the famous
treaty of 1919, and it is a ring that had an interesting history even before that. Cherles
Naundorff, who maintained that he was Louis
XVII of France, gave it to Jules Favre, who
became foreign minister, and M. Favre used
it to seal the armistice of 1871 at Versailles,
because Bismarck wasunmilling to wait until
the state seal could be brought from Paris.
A water wheel has been invented which   is
designed to adjust itself automatically  to  the
varying height of the propelling stream.    As
first constructed the wheel has eight V shaped
paddles about   13   feet long and 14 inches
wide, and it is so mounted on an air tight tan k
that it rises and falls with the river's chang es
through any height up to 36 feet. It is used for
pumping irrigating water from a distance  of
280   feet   to a height of 70 feet above the
source.  Pumps and gearing are placed on the
river bank, and the wheel and tank   are connected by a shaft having universal couplings
at each end.

HQW do YOU fed about the development of your own

are bound to admit that 1921 marked a turning point in
western progress. Today the world has its eyes on British

There has been an industrial development that few can

The most urgent requirement in
Canada's Agricultural Products
CANADA produces every year large quantities of wheat, oats, barley,
butter, cheese, bacon, beef, eggs, apples, potatoes, grass seed and
clover seed that she cannot consume. Her natural outlet for these products is, of course, Great Britain—the one great consuming country of
the world with an open market
Unfortunately, nearly every other country with any surplus of food
products seems to want to send its surplus to this same market.
The keenness of the competition on this, our only market, and the
energy and resourcefulness of our competitors began to impress themselves upon the Department of Agriculture some time ago, but it is only
within very recent years that the real and only way to grapple with this
problem has been discovered, or at least put into effect. This Department
now believes, as do also most of the farmers of this country, that the
"grading" of our agricultural products is the policy and practice that is
seeing us through the struggle and will assure us of our rightful place on
the British market.
"Grading" means the classifying JJ shillings a long hundredweight below
