GRANBY DEAL
At a Meeting in New York
Shareholders Endorse
Proposal to Buy Canada
Copper Property
At a meeting of shareholders of
the Qranby Consolidated Mining,
Smelting it Power company, beld
io New York last Thursday, the
proposal to issue 250,000 additional
shares, doubling the capital stook
ofthe company, was ratified.
B|The additional stock is being
issued for the purpose of acquiring
tbe mine and mill of tbe Canada
Copper CorporatioD at Princeton,
B, C. Granby has agreed to ex-
change 155,000 of tbe new shares,
worth approximately 3,750,000 at
present stock market valuations,
for tbe properties of the Canada
Copper Corporation. It is not tbe
intention of the Qranby management to issue tbe other 95,000
shares at present.
Announcement of Granby's proposed deal two weeks ago created
widespread interest in British Ool-
lumbia mining circles. It is proposed among otber things to make
considerable changes in the plant at
Princeton, wbich will provide a good
deal of employment, lo addition to
aotive development of the mine,
wbicb is on Copper mountain and is
an immense deposit of low grade
ore, will provide steady work for a
large force of miners.
about two inches above tbe bottom
bar. The other; method is
four horizontal and two diagonal
wires. The first horizontal wire is
about one inch below the top bar,
and tbe rest at equal distances ap 'rt.
The two diagonal wires are run from
tbe ends of tbe lowest horizontal
wire in tbe frame to tbe center of
the top bar, wbere it can be fastened
either by a small staple or nail.
Number 28 tinned wire is used and
in all cases is made as tight as pos -
sible In Jumbo frames five hori
zontal wireB are used in addition to
the diagonals. Vertical wiring bas
not proved very satisfactory. Im •
bedding tbe wires into the founda»
tion can be done with tbe spur wire
imbeddor or with electricty, the
latter being tbequicker and giving
the best results. Wbere tbe horizontal wiring is used the sheet of foundation is better placed between ^tbe
horizontal and diagonal wires.
Few beekeepers use supports in
tbe shallow extracting combs, but it
is safer to stretch two horizontal
wires across tbe fiame, as it makes
tbe comb thai much stronger.
Although vertical wiring of frames
bas not proved very satisfactory, a
foundation in whicb a number of
vertical wires are imbedded permanently, and wbich is giving good results, can now be purchased from
some of tbe dealers in bee supplies.

WIRING FRAMES
The value of good com us containing the maximum number of cells of
worker size and well anchored io tbe
frames is well known to the progressive beekeeper. There are, however,
many beekeepers who either do not
use any system of support witb in
theframe or are applying a system
tbat fails to give the support necesH
sary. In order to stand tbe rough
usage of the honey exrractor, the
combs must be reinforced; otherwise tbey will break and in s une
cases be thrown completoly out of
tbe frames. Wben foundation is
given to the bees it must be beld in
place or the resultant combs will be
made crooked. The foundation also
needs to be supported or tbe weight
of the bees will cause many of tbe
cells immediately below tbe top bar
to (become stretched aud in some
cases cause it. to break entirely from
(be frames, especially if the summer
is very bot and tbe honey flow
heavy. Tbese stretched cells will
either be used for drone production
or for the storage uf honey. Tbis,
of course, will reduce tbe area necessary for tbe production of worker
brood.
To seure tbe support and rigidity
needed for tbe combs it ia necessary
to adopt some system of wiring the
frames, either horizontally or verti
cally acrosB the frames, and tbese
wires firmly imbedded into the
foundation. There are several methods of wiring—uure thau can be
given in this sbort article. Tbe two
following methods bave given very
good results: In theframe of Langstroth dimensions four wires are
generally used, but tbese do not prevent sagging below the top bar.
Better results are obtained by uiing
five horizontal wires witb the top
wire one-half inch below the top
bar, tbe second one inch below the
first and the other three at equal
iUtancM apart, the lower one being
Death of Wm. T. Ross
The deatb of William Tecumseh
Sheridan Ross occurred at his home,

Wit in the Court lio > it
Wit is usually out of place in a
court room. Yot when it does occur
it seems to shine with added brightness against tho somber background.
For oxample, two farmers in the west
of Ireland once had a dispute over
some land. At last, says Sir Edward
Sullivan iu tho Nineteenth Century,
the case eame into the high court,
The presiding judge vt once tried
to pour oil on the troubled waters and
addressing tho plaintiff, said, "This is
a trivial case. Why not settle it?
You men have got to be neighs
bors all your lives. Now I suppose
that apart f Jom this trespass you consider the defendant a very decent
man?"
The plaintiff scratched his head
and hesitatingly replied, "Well, he
is, sir, but he sometimes gets as drunk
as a judgo."
"You mean as drunk as a lord,"
remarked tbe president of the court.
"Yes, your lord," replied the
plaintiff.
NEW DISTRICTS
TO BE ASSISTED
Encouragement for Clear -
ing of Land and Assistance to Secure Transportation Facilities
Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Victoria, Feb. 14.— Assistance for
the development of industry in the
smaller centers of the province is receiving more and more attention
from tbe government. As is the case
in all provinces and states, the cities
often benefit at tbe expense of the
towns. Vancouver, Victoria' and
New Westminster are not slow in
pressing tbeir claims for government
aid. Tbeir population and proximity to tbe seat of goverment enables
tbem to handicap the smaller centers, but if the plans of the govern
ment are carried out tbis advantage
will be offset
^Hon. W. H. Sutherland, minister
of public works, bas announced tbat
tbe newer districts of fhe province
will receive more consideration in
tbe matter of rjads, trails and
bridges, for the reason that the welfare of British Columbia as a whole
demands tbat tbe undeveloped areas
be made productive, and this ran
ouly be done through the provisun
of adequate transportation facilities,
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of
lands, just returned from n tour of
central British Columbia, is optimistic ' ver tbe possibilities of th t
section and predicts a big inffux of
population. Every encouragement
will be given the new settlers and
assistance furnished in tho clearing
of land and provision of transportation facilities.
MustGontrol Importation
Moderation in British Columbia
bas passed tbrough a fairly thorough test and so far seems to have
met witb a reasonable measure of
success. Government coutrol has
not been an unmixed blessing, but
tbe officials in charge of tbe liquor
laws contend tbat so long as people
consume intoxicating beverages
tbere will be illicit trafficking which
no amount of legal enforcement can
keep fully in cbeok.    Hon. A. M.
attorney-generalebip, bas waged vigorous war against tbe bootlegger,und
official reports show that illicit trading in liquor has been cut to a minimum.
Following the action of the legislature in petitioning Ottawa to enact legislation providing for government control of imports, a determined effort will be made to seure
tbis power. At the last session of
the federal government the bouse of
commons passed a bill giving British
Columbia tbe right to control importation, but the measure was
thrown out by the senate. Even
moderationists admit that unless
British Columbia secures this right
bootlegging can not be controlled,
and tbe attorney-general has issued
the warning that unless those io
favor of the present act cooperate to
secure the fullest measure of control
the present method of ham!lint-
liquor may have a limited existence
It iB also claimed that while British
Columbia and Quebec are tha only
provinces where liquor may ba purchased, there is uo more liquor consumed here, per capita, and a great
deal less law-breaking than in the
"dry" provinces.
New P.G.E. General Manager Given Send-off
Thomas Kilpatrick, the new general manager of the Pacific Great
Eastern railway, was given a happy
send-off Saturday night bv the
officials and staff of the public
works department, wben be was
tendered a dinner. Formerly, he
was witb tbe department for nine
years, seven of which were spent as
provincial superintendent of bridges
During that time Mr. Kilpatrick was
credited with improving tbe bridges
of tbe province materially, and he
changes departments witb tbe fullest
confidence of his old associates that
he will put the government railway
on as sound a footing as is humanly
postible. Undei the management of
tbe former geueral manager, A. B.
Buckworth, operating deficits reached a low figure, and with this official
as deputy minister of railways, and
Mr. Kilpatrick as manager, Hon.
Dr. MacLean, minister of railways,
is confident of the future of the
line.

St. John, N.B.—Figures compiled
at C. P. R. headquarters show tbat
the port of Kt. John has handled
very much more freight to January
19th this season, as compared with
ths corresponding period of last
year.
Exports totalled 260,472 tons of all
classes of freight handled by the G.
P. ft. officials through this port
■ince the beginning of the winter
port business. Last year during the
same period 146,393 tons passed

Notes, Notions and Notables
"I was not born with a silver spoon in my
mouth. My father was only a policeman, but
I was brought up to live a clean, useful life,
honor my father and mother, to be just to all
men, to respect law and promote order, and
I have tried to carry out those fundamentals,"
says William S. Flynn, governor-elect of
Rhode Island. Here at last is a man who
gives to his pBrents some credit for his success. We are weary of the public men who
shout to the four corners of the earth that
they are self-made; that when almost infants
they were obliged to get out and sh ft for
themselves; that everything they have become
is absolutely due to their own eflbrts. Did
their fathers and mothers all die the day they
were born? Have they no tenderness in their
hearts, no consideration for the feelings of
their old parents? We suspect that Mr. Flynn
must be a thoroughbred and a gentleman.

At the same time tbere is in the United
States 114,300,000 horsepower in prime mover
power, but of this 65,000,000 horsepower is in
locomotives which should oot perhaps be used
in this analysis, or at least not all of it. Of
the balance, 23,000,000 is used by public
utilities and 26,000,000 by manufacturers,
mines and quarries. Of this prime mover
power 70 per cent is located east of the Mississippi and 30 per cent west of the Mississippi.
Now if water power were substituted for
steam power, assuming the development of
all of the 54,000,000 potential water power
resouces of the country, the saving in coal per
annum would be 600,000,000 tons, the value
of which on a pre-Mar basis would be $2,000,
000,0000. The equivalent saving in oil would
be 2,000,000,000 barrels, with an approximate
value of $2,000,000,000. At present prices
the values would be nearly double—or $4,000,
000,000. Its equivalent in man power would
be 648,000,000 men working eight hours a

There is a great deal of truth in the follow

Turks want anything they can take, hold o r

THE STRAIN of roodern^ivil-

WATER METERS
The adoption of water meters is being more
widely discussed by  municipal  men every
where, as it is generally being understood that
it results in immense savings and lessens the
actual cost to the consumer.
In fact, the only person to object to the use
of meters is the man who has been wasting
water.
The city council of Montreal has been discussing this question lately, and the labor
union has registered an objection. But this,
we feel sure, is based on a misconception of
the question.
In every place where meters have been
adopted, the per capita consumption—not the
use—of water is excessive. Therefore the cost
is very high. As soon as the consumption is
reduced—as h always is by the use of meters
—the cost is reduced also.
The un metered water rate is the mosu ab
surd of all civic taxes, whether it is based on
the whole property or by the room. The way
which would most nearly approach a just
method would be to tax each person in the
house.
But metering is the equitable way, as it exacts payment for what is actually consumed,
which is just to every one.

heavy expense for new reservoirs. But at the
suggestion of the city engineer, Col. Doane,
meters were adopted. The consumption was
immediately cut down to a point that put off
the new reservoirs for some years.
In an article in a reoent issue of the Transvaal Municipal Magazine, Murt Andrews,
town engineer of Johannesburg, discusses tbe
question very fully. He points out that the
old system led to great waste, and that meters aro being adopted more generally all the
time.
In a certain Canadian city there was violent
opposition from one newspaper. The city en
gineer quietly put in a meter and found a tremendous excess of the use of weter. Furth er
investigation resulted in the discovery of tap s
that were leaking "geuerously, so that the
water was not being used, but simply wasted.
And the citizens at large were paying for the
failure to keep these taps in order.

Banff.—J. B. Harkin, Comm.s-
tioner of National Parks, has announced that the formal opening if
the Banff-Windermere Road, work
on which was concluded last year,
will take place on June 30. The
ceremony is to be held at Vermillion
Crossing:, half way between Banff
and Windermere, motors leaving
both ends of the road early in the
morning to meet at that place. The
suggestion has been made by R. li.
Bruce, of Invermere, that the National Park he named "Columbia
National Park," and thc road leading up the Columbia Valley from
the boundary to Golden be named
the "Canadian Columbia Highway."
STABILITY OF CANADA'S RAILROADS
DEPENDS ON FREEDOM OF MANAGEMENT
President  of  Canadian  Pacific
Points Out How Canada
May Avoid Costly
Mistakes
Victoria.—Motorists will nave a
aew circuit trip available with the
completion in May of the high-
powered motor ferry now building
at Yarrows. Not only will Island
and Mainland be linked by the operation of this craft, but the Canadian Pacific will have the steamer
"Charmer" engaged in the purpose
farther north. The "Charmer" will
operate between Vancouver and Nanaimo, furnishing accommodation
for all types of cart. With the new
ferry in service, a new circuit will
be made available—from Seattle via
Bellingham to Sidney, thence to Victoria over paved road, to Nanaimo
•ver the Malahat, thence by the
"Charmer" to Vancouver and down
tbe Pacific Highway to thc border
Hb* aad Seattle again.
The motor ferry will have ample
height between deck to allow for
all classes of cars. During the busy
season it will make two round trips
every day. The vessel will be fitted
with observation rooms and open
deck spaces to give tourists every
opportunity to enjoy at their ease
the fine scenery through the channels between San Juan, Lopez aad
other islands of the San Juan archipelago.
St. John, N.B.—The Canadian Pa-
lific freighter, "Bolingbroke" recently brought from London the
largest import cargo to reach St.
John since the war. She was crammed to the thatches with more than
4,700 tons of general merchandise.
Capt. E. Landy, who is in command,
■aid that he had never carried a
■ore valuable cargo and expressed
great satisfaction that not a single
package had been lost. Included in
the cargo were silks and other valuable dress goods, dry goods of various descriptions, perfumes and many
ether expensive commodities. A
cargo of this kind makes lots of
work fer the longshoremen.
Vaacoaver.—Carrying a record
shipment of Canadian apples to the
Orient the Canadian Pacific 16.850-
ton liner, "Empress of Asia'' recently tailed.
On opening -the crates in tht
Oriental ports the consignees of
past shipments have fonad that tht
applet are as fresh aa if taken from
the tree. This is partly due to the
fact that at thit time of the year
the perishable cargo only gets one
day of tropical heat during the whole
voyage across. The "Alia" took approximately 860 tons of this com*
modity in her hold*, the largest consignment of apples to go through
the -Narrows thia season ftr tht
Orient.
WN a special article written for the
■" Annual Financial number of
the "Montreal Gazette," E. W.
Beatty, K.C, President of the Canadian Pacific Railway, makes a plea
for the keeping free of Canada's railroad management from legislative
and political restriction. The subject is
of unusual interest at this time, and
Mr. Beatty points out that Canada
has something to learn in this respect from the somewhat unhappy
experience of the United States. The
article is as follows:—
Canada has sometimes been upbraided with being less quick to
1 adopt new ideas than her neighbor,
the United States. While this more
conservative attitude may have its
drawbacks, it sometimes has its advantages, as it enables us to study
■ the progress of experiments conducted under similar conditions to
those pertaining to this country
without being ourselves involved in
the penalties of failure. A case in
point was the United States Government control of railroads during
the war. Those who anticipated a new
Jerusalem from the experiment have
either confessed their disillusionment
or have diverted their enthusiasm to
other visionary sdiesaet.
Tbe extent to which the American railway» is still crippled by
the recent experiment has not been
thoroughly recognized, and tbe almost equal danger of government
over-regulation Ms been overlooked.
This official interference Hill interferes with tht stability of the railroads, with the remit that the capital required for necessary maintenance and equipment it lacking, and
the vigorous programme of erten-
ston and devvopmeat which might
have been expected after the war is
aot yet announced. With a shortage of 180,000 freight cars and 2,000
locomotives, the American railroads
have failed aarHtfactorily to handle
tbe harvest or to distribute the much
needed eoal. Por this they are not
themselves* to blame. As Secretary
Hoover has fraakfv -admitted, the
American ravroads are suffering
from long-continued financial starvation, and points oat that the loss
ta the United States daring each
period of severe car shortage it at
least a billion dollara, most of the
toes faffing anon tbe farmers.
In the United States, the farmer
has been clamoring for reduction of
freight rata*, bot of what advantage
will fhote lower rates be to that
farmer if tbey still further deprive
the railroads of the credit required to
buy the equipment lor transporting
the harvest to market? Lower rates

editorials  in   the  Wall  Street  Jour
nal of  December 9th:—
"The theory that you can tax
railroads poor, compel them to pay
the highest wages and conduct transportation at a loss will not work in
America oraaanywhere else."
"The Interstate Commerce Act,
approved February 4, 1887, has been
continually amended, each amend
ment bringing with it more and more
restraint, and leaving to railroad
managers less and less initiative."
"Coincident with . these amendments came state* legislation creating
the public utilities commissions, designed to do in a small way what
the Interstate Commerce Commission was doing in a large way. Always there was growing the ever-
swelling stream of legislation of a restrictive character, some fanatical,
some political and utterly selfish, but
tfi tending to  increase  the  cost  of
ration and lessen the initiative of
mananagement.
"The railroad problem it today
more political than economic. Government interference has dried up
the sources from which railroad
management built its colossal structure. Investment capital is always
shy of political control. With control of their expenditures in their
own hands, subject only to economic
laws, the railroad business ought to
be permitted to readjust itself as
other business must do and is doing.
"Vou must not think you can continue the policy of private ownership and at thc same time regulate
every railroad method and operation
and still expect them to continue to
show enterprise and initiative. Too
much protection and too much regulation sre disastrous."
The record of the recent shopmen's
strike in the United States showed
that wage-fixing by government does
not avert strikes. Indeed, it is generally admitted that the strike was
due In no small measure to the work-
Government Interference  With
Management Tends to Dry
Up Sources of Country's
Most Pressing Needs
ers' resentment at having their wages
cut by government authority. The
matter could have been amicably arranged if negotiations had been left
to the railroad officials and the employees.
The moral of all this is, of course,
that Canada would be wise te profit
by her neighbor's experience, and
avoid the mistake of constant appeals for government interference in
order to adjust railway matters which
may be In dispute. For government interference, however well in-
tcntioned it may be in the beginning,
inevitably results in paralysis and inertia. A round-table conference between the parties interested is much
more likely to remedy the trouble.
In the case of immigration we have
seen how war regulations introduced
for a specific purpose have hampered
the movement of desirable settlers
to this country owing to the slowness of the official mind to adapt itself to new circumstances. Increase
of government regulation means increase of the number of officials and
increased taxation, and heaven knows
we have taxation enough as it is I
What the business of this country
needs ia freedom of initiative and prospect of a reasonable return for enterprise, always with due regard to
the general welfare.
It cannot be too strongly emphasized that Canada's most pressing
needs are capital and men. Without
the latter its potentialities cannot be
realized and the burden of taxation
lessened, and without the former, its
industrial expansion cannot be
achieved. Our energies should be
directed to exploiting the advantages
and the wealth of this country in
those quarters where wealth is available and whose holders believe that
under Canada's laws and constitutional system their investments will
be given the encouragement and protection which they deserve. The
wealth of this country lies in thc
ground for the most part and must
be taken out of it by the joint labors
of men and money.
Excursions by the government into the field of private enterprise cannot be supported except on grounds
of national peril, or to save ecemonrc
disaster, but scarcely less important
is the necessity for broad policies of
non-interference in business by regulatory and restrictive legislation
which has a tendency to tie the hands
and cripple the initiative of those entrusted with thc legitimate develop-,
ment of the commerce and industries
of the nation. Providentially, we
can see no indication of such an attitude in Canada, and that is as it'
should be. It is the spirit of the
pioneer which initiated this country's
development, and it is that spirit
translated to our modern and complex commercial life which will contribute most to its future prosperity,!

LIFE WAS MISERY!
"I  was reading the other day
about Neurasthenia, abont tht
large number of people who wert
troubled with this disease. It is
just what my wife had. She felt
miserable all the time and was constantly depressed. Sho would
waken in the morning and tell mt
that something dreadful was going
to happen that day. Life wat
nothing short of misery for her.
She was so depressed that I expected she would lost her mind
and have to go to a sanitarium
and 1 kept wondering how I
would get the money to pay fot
her. She could not eat and had
no appetite for food. She was irritable and cranky most of the
time. If she was crossed in any
way, she would immediately work
herself up into a violent temper.
This worried me because she had
always had a kind and gentle disposition nnd nothin-r which was
said or done seemed to irritate
her. I spoke to our family doctor
ahout hor and he said that her
trouble vas imagination and that
if she would try and forget about
her depression nnd look on tho
bright side of life she would be
all right. Of course I didn't daro
tell her this because I knew she
would get into one of her tempers.
When she got over these fits of
temper, she was always weak and
ill and more depressed than over.
The dot lor said a tonic might
help her nnd gave me a prescription but this did not do her any
good. She tried all kinds of other
ionics with tho snme result. Carnol was recommended to me and I
wish to state that it is the leader
of all tonics. Mince taking it my
wife has changed completely. Now
she is always ready for her meals
and work is no burden. It is a
pleasure for me to recommend
Carnol' to anyone who is in need
of a tonic or a body builder.
Excuse mo for writing this letter
but I want you to accept my
thanks for that wonderful tonic
known as Carnol." — Mr. J. M.,
Toronto.
Carnol is sold by your druggist,

after you have tried it, that it
hasn't dune you any good, return

the negro. "No, sah! Not a-tall! I
quits right here and now."
"But," protested the director, "this
lion won't hurt you.   This   lion   was
brought up on milk."
"So was I brung up on milk,"
wailed the negro, "but I eats meat
now."

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was reoently ob
tained, are: "To provide a Home and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of suoh unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age witb normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This ia a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York City; they have now humus
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Ar-
■(hur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaad.. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response ie confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
■will be promptly acknowledged.
