$1.00 PER YEAR
Ninety-five Per Gent of
Last Year's Fires Were
Caused Through Carelessness and Only Five
Per Cent by Lightning
Special Gorrespotidence of The Sun.
Victoria, May 9.—Supporting hie
plea fur unrelenting activity on the
part of every citizen of British Columbia in the prevention and control
of forest fires, Hon. T. D. Pattullo,
minister of lands, states that last
year forest fireB cost tbe province
$23,000,000 of timber destroyed.
Of the total of 2,000,000,000 feet of
timber cut one-third, or approximately 700,000,000 feet, were destroyed by fire. The cost of fighting
fires for the year was $750,000.
Tbe minister also contends that
95 per cent of last year's fires were
caused through carelessness. Only
5 per cent of the fires were due to
lightning. Logging camps were responsible for 12 per cent and camp
ers for about 33 per cent. Mr. Pattullo remarked that those figures
should bring home to the people of
ths province a fuller realisation of
tbe great need for care and the
tremendons financial loss entailed
through forest fires.
Profits from tbe sale of livuor by
the government during the six
months ending March 31 amounted
to $1,250,195, announces Attorney*
General Manson. The figures include all sales in the government
liquer stoaes, including those of faraway places like Atlin, Pouce Coupe
and Telegraph Creek,, Five per cent
of ihiB amount will he placed in the
reserve fund, leaving'$1,187,785
to be divided. Fifteen per cent, or
$179,152, will be placed to the
credit of a special fund for hospitals
and charitable institutions. Another
35 per cent, or $415,698, goes direct
to the municipalities, of which two-
sevenths must be used for school
Tbe remaining balf of the liquor
profits, amounting to $59Z,843, will
be  credited   to   the    consolidated
revenue fund.   The position of tbe
municipalities is   better to the ex-
teut   that   out of   their   share   of
liquor   profits  for the six months
ending September 30, 1922,amounting to $511,537,  they were bound
under tbe statute to set   aside  one-)
half for aid to the hospitals, leaving
$255,758  for   general   purpose-*, as
against $455,000 this half year, under the legislation passed at the last
session of the legislature.
- Hon. E. D.   Burrow,  minister of
agriculture,  reports  that the   total
number of cattle io the   province at
December 31 last was 105,050, but
tfieie   were   not sufficient cows to
supply ull tbe milk used  in   British
Columbia. Every  encouragement is
being .given   the  industry   hy  the
minister   and   his   officials   and  a
marked increase io tbe  number of
cattle is looked for this year.
The provincial forest branch re
ports that the revenue from tbe sale
of timber, timber licenses, timber
leases and scale and royalty for
April amounted to $225,776, as
against $145,000 for the same month
last year- Hon. T. D. Pattullo reports the timber business in a flour
isbing condition and predicts a banner year for 1923.
Hon. Dr. Sutherland, minister of
public works, will leive Victoria in
two week for an inspection of the
highways of British Columbia, having in mind particularly the planning of $200*000 worth of settlers'
roads. Tbe minister favors the
plan of encouraging settlement
tbrough tha. provision of «dequate
transportation facilities and many
short roads to serve the newer dis*
tricts will be constructed.

A Trick of the Telegraph
An inspector of railway
property whose duties had
taken him to Bridgeport,
Connecticut, discovered that
the fonndation under the
freight house needed repairs
Without delay he filed this
dispatch to the New York
"Foundation under freight
house at Bridgeport unsafe—
rush.men at once."
In sending the message the
operator on the New York
wire apparently did not space
the letters properly in the
word ''foundation" and also
pressed too long to form the
letter "t"; for this is the message received in New York:
"Found a lion under freight
house at Bridgeport—rush
men at once."    •
The inspector was astonished a few hours later to see
a special work train come into
the yard with a flat car containing a large animal cage
and also ten men   who   ex
Adrenalin will re-tore the dead
to life—with many reservations and
in a limited number of cases. It is
not a cure-all, nor an elixir of life,
nor a medicine for the blackbag of
the family doctor. It is, however,
a powerful heart stimulant that is
invaluable  in certain cases of col- Discovers Buried
Such is the opinion expressed by Gity o£ Unrecorded
Dr.  Lester R. Dragstedt, assistant Civilized   Ade
professor of physiology in the University of Chisago, who, with his o-
worker, Dr. Arno B Luckhardt, has
helped make adrenalin more tban a
medical novelty.
The usefulness of adrenalin lies
chiefly in its effect of constricting
the heart and blood vessels, tbus
causing a marked increase in blood
pressure, tbe doctor declared. It is
this virtue which has accomplished
marvellous recoveries in certain
cases and has brought persons seemingly dead to life by stimu ating the
heart into action.
But here enter the reservations.
Tbe heart must not have Btopped
more tban a few minutes, 10 to 15
minutes is the maximum before the
brain tissues become destroyed.
Tbe heart must not be diseased or
worn out. Other disease, sufficient
in itself to cause death, must not be
present. These conditions limit the
cases where adrenalin may be used
"The   most   common   cases are
those of heart stoppage due to over
Mexico Ciiy, May 2.—James
Pbilomen, a captain in the aviation
forcet during the world war aod now
an engineer here, on his return to
the city last week reported the finding of an immense prehistoric city
in the state of Colima, at tbe foot of
tbe Colima volcano.
Wbile prospecting for cement he
found the remains of the city unfier
lava beds and the primitive civiliza-
lion was beneath the cement deposits beneath tbe lava.
The city possesses several pyramids, one of whicb is very large.
Tbe bases of the pyramids are below tbe gravel and cement deposits
under the lava, a distance of over
forty feet. Pbilomon believes that
the city is several thousand years
older than the flows of lava which
cover it.
Near the ruins, whicb cover several miles, are caves of vast extent,
on tbe walls of whicb are curious
ancient hieroglyphic writings with
masses   of   broken   pottery on the

from Norway,  is quoted  from the

workers assert. Between those conflicting and
confusing statistics the public stands "perplexed. There are so many ways of keeping
books that the same facts can be made to
bear strangely different faces. All the public
is sure of is that coal costs a great deal more
than it used to. It lives in hope that the coal
commission now sitting will be able to find
out why it costs so much.and whether there is
any good reason why it should not reach the

Notes, Notions and Notables
The first general manager of the newly organized Associated Growers cf British Columbia, Limited, in his inaugural address at
Vernon last week, spoke very sensibly We
were pleased to note that he claimed no magical powers by which he hopes to accomplish
miracles, nor did he anticipate altogether
smooth sailing ovflr an unruffled spa. It is
therefore reasonable to expect that sound
business principles will be employed in conducting the affairs of the association, and that
the officers will keep a vigilant lookout for
breakers ahead. This knowledge, together
with the announced intention of keeping the
members fully informed of events, should
satisfy the growers at present. Some of them,
however, are inclined to be alarmed at the
heavy overhead expense which is being piled
on the new orgai ization.
Some reforms made no noise at all until
they burst suddenly upon the world fully ac
It has recently been discovered that the
disease known as infective or hemorrhagic
jaundice is caused by a germ—the so called
leptospira—that can be transported and communicated to human beings by rats. The germ
is peculiar in its power to penetrate the skin
and enter the blood stream; most germs ean
enter only through an orifice in the body or a
break in the skin. Fortunately the disease,
though serious, is not common. There was a
notable epidemic of it in the trenches round
Ypres during the war, and cases are occasionally reported now both in France and in England.

The average farmer of Minnesota is reputed
tobemore prosperous and more contented than
his brethren are any where on this continent. If
this is true, The Sun thinks it has Discovered
the primary reason. From one of its exchanges from that state it learns that the
creamery in one county paid out .$14,182.(53
for cream during the month of March. The
highest amount paid to any oue man was
$470.74. When the ranchers of the Kettle
valley develops the dairying industry to the
same extent that it is developed in Minnesota,
they will enjoy the same amount of prosperity
as the farmers of that state. Aud the development of the industry here is gradually going
on. It required decades to perfect it to its
present stand«rd in Minnesota. Therefore we
should not be too impatient.
Any smart paragrapher can sharpen
teeth of an old saw.
This is the era of "big men," Even institu
tions of comparatively modest scope must
have "big men," with big salaries, at their
head. Measured by the salary whioh he drew,
the sales manager of the late O.U.G. was a big
man; yet if an ordinary mortal had not showed
any more shrewdness in managing his own
affairs than the sales manager did in handling
the product of tho fruit growers, he would
probably havo landed iu an asylum for lunatics. If a bank manager should landlethe
funds of his depositors in the manner the sales
manager handled the fruit crops of the past
two years he would bo lucky to keep out of
the penitentiary. There are real big men and
artificial big men. The real big man crcites
hisown job and salary; the artificial big nan
has the job and the salary thrust upon liim.
An ordinaty man with common horse sense is
better and safer for his employers thau an
artificial big man.
When a man is in earnest and knows  what
he is about, his work is half done.—Mirabeau.
Conservatism is but a stubborn des:re to
cling to the ideas that were radical twenty
years ago.
■THE STRAIN of modern civil-

A Virginian named Collier has built an internal combustion engine that, he says.applies
the power of the motor directly to the rim of
the wheel without the intervention of a piston.
He believes that it will treble the efficiency of
automobile engines and enable a motor car tp
run fifty or sixty miles on a gallon of gasoline.
Mr. Collier's engine has one spark plug, no
pistons, no crank shaft and no gears. It has
only 117 parts, whereas even the simplest off
automobile engines have hitherto had more
than three hundred. It is not unusual for in-
ventors to be cversanguine about their achieve
uiente, We sball be interested to see whether
this engine can do what is promised for it.

The Keller Eagle prints the following sweet
dream of the future: From the Old National
bank, Spokane, (monthly bulletin, we learn
that the production of sugar during the year
for the world is placed at 20,450,000 tons, or
200,000 tons more than in 1922. This with the
459,000 tons left ovar from last year will create an enormous surplus, and with the thousands of women on a hunger strike against
buying it, will set the sugar trust wild with
the cry of overproduction and so reduce the
price that we will enter the grocery store with
a five-pound sack of salt and trade it off for
ten pounds of sugar and take the balance in
crackers and cheese.

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was reeently obtained, 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 such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at bhe Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in bhe Dominion. Nobhing
has yeb been done for bhose helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened in New York Ciby; bhey have now homes
in 13 Staf.es, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only one iu bhe British Empire. Leb us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach bhis worthy end money is urgently required.
Pifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boajd, 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 is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly, acknowledged.

Issued I u every town on the continent, pour along the highway. Nowhere else can the motorist obtain
such ti long run through such ever
changing scenes of natural beauty.
During the past few years it has
become quite the thing to motor
through vacation time, antl those who
choose thiB way of holidaying are
unanimous ln their choice of a "hunting ground." British Columbia and
the rookies are not the things to bc
"done." because having travelled
through them once means never to
have willingly done with the country.
No tess attractive on acount of its
g-aad test-OB. scenic properties and
tourist accommodation is Vancouver
Island. The eity of Victoria at thr
southern extremity of the Island Is
the hub from which the "round the
Island" and shorter roads radiate.
and the town itself, with its broom
decked bills, its thousand gardens,
Its avenues of hawthorns, acacia,
lyburnum and other fragrant, trees is
the goal of all who having covered
the scenic routes of thc mainland
would still enjoy the pleasures of
the road without travelling the same
road again, and those who are attracted to the island by its particular
type of beauty, which Is after the
English style with "just enough of
the tropics thrown in."
The passage to the Island i.s
usually made by ferry from Vancouver, or Belllngham in the State
of Washington to Victoria or one of
the west coast ports nearby. The
Canadian Pacific Railway Company
has this year put Into service a new
automobile ferry, the "Motor Princess," a motor driven vessel whicli
operates between Belllngham and
Victoria and which, with a capacity
for fifty automobiles and well ap
pointed accommodation for 250
passengers, plies twice daily.
The route traversed by the ferry
ls marked by islands, some of which
are miles in extent, others gem like
islets thrusting up from smiling
seas, making the waterway a succession of pictures to which the most
famous of salon hangings cannot
compare. The lordly Mount Baker
Is also seen from the ferry to advantage standing as it does in n
mantle of dazzling snow amid tho
foothills of the mainland.
