P. B. Freeland, tbe milling engi

mineral resources of tbe district.
He took an optimistic view of the
situation, and felt reasonably certain chat a revival of mining ac
tivity in tbe Bounday would come
witb a stiffening of metal markets
F. M. Kerby, C.E., endorsed the
view taken by Mr. Freeland of tbe
mining industry, and expressed tbe
opinion tbat no legislation tbat tbe
government hae enacted could be
blamed for the slump in mining
during tbe period of industrial depression and unrest tbrough whicb
' we have passed.
SHIPPERS ADDRESS
KELOWNA GROWERS
A recent dispatch from Kelowna
says that the growers will hereafter
bave a permanent committee working witb tbe shippers in the discus
sions and arranging of marketing
policies. This was tbe outcome of a
meeting of growers beid in the Empress theater on Tuesday to hrar
the report of tbeir special committee
on tbe 1921 marketing policies. The
B. C. Traffic, and Credit association
extended tbe invitation to tbe grow*
era td name's committee to confer
witb tbe shippers, wbicb was* accepted witb considerable satisfaction. •
Af er hearing a number of speakers, ebief of wbom were li M. Wins
low.manager of tbe B, C. Traffic and
Credit association, and E. Doberer,
the president, tbe valley growers
were invited to tbe stage and the
meeting then developed into a debate between tbe representatives of
tbe Okanagan United Growers and
the B. C. Orowers as to wbo cut
prices.
Tbe B. C. Growers admitted- tbat
they bad sold Wealthy apples at less
than a figure wbicb was said to be
tbeir value in the valley, and tbat
they had also sold winter apples before the shippers bad decided on any
value for the."winter deal."
AgainBt this was tbe accusation
that the Growers' Sales Agency, the
selling branch 6f the Okanagan
United Growers, bad made a deal
for the sale of all tbe Kootenay apples on a consignmeut basis. This
. Mr. Morrison of the Growers' Sales
Agency, who made the negotiations,
told about and explained tbe details
showing that the price of $1.76
which had been set rested with tbe
shipper whether it sbould be accepted or not.   It was a controlled
consignment deal, be said. These
questions were asked by a committee representing tbe Kelowna grow*
ere, who beld a meeting in February
and dis ussed the misunderstandings wbich bad arisen out of the
year's business, and they were aft r
information, L. E. Taylor, the
spokesman, asserted.
It was evident from tbe tone .of
the meeting tbat ihe growers were
not satisfied witb the last year's
deal and wanted to know "wbo cut
the prices."
R M. Winslow, of tbe B. C. Traffic and Credit association* Vernod,
an organization representative of
nearly every fruit shipping concern
in the province, was the spokesman
for the shippers aod was on tbe
stand for nearly tbree hours, during
whicb lime growers fired all manner
of questions at bim, wbicb he handled like a politician on the stump.
He reviewed the season's marketing difficulties and showed how tbe
drop in price of wheat last October
and the decreased value of farm produce generally bad cut down tbe
purchasing power of the prairie
provinces by three hundred million
dollars, resulting in a poor demand
for British Columbia fruit. There
never bad been sucb a small con
sumption of apples in tbe prairie
provinces as in 1921, be declared.
Among otber facts which the speaker placed before tbe growers was
tbat the carlot shipments of berries
were increasing yearly, and that 48
bad gone out lant year as compared
witb 18 tbe previous season.
Fiom the Okanagan approximate
ly 185 cars of apples had gone to
Vancouver -last fail, tbe shipments
from otber British Columbia apple
districts increasing tbis total to
about 240 cars. Ibe average jsoo
sumption of apples in Vancouver
from October to December be placed
at around 325 cars.
. It was felt by most of the growers
that certain things bad been told
them, and tbat tbe differences of
opinion bad been cleared away and
tbat the meeting had done a great
deal in showing to tbeir number tbe
reason fer tbe poor prices for the
1921 crop. Whi e the meeting was
rather stormy at times, much good
bas resulted, it was stated, for it
cleared tbe air.

AIL Arbuckle Films
Barred iri New York
New York, April 19.—All show
ings and bookings of new Roscoe
(Fatty) Arbuckle films were ordered
cancelled today after ex-Postmaster
General Will H. Hays, big boss of
filmdom, bad beld a long conference
witb Adolph Zukor, Jesse Lasky
and Nicholas Schenck, tbe latter
representing his brother, Joseph
Schenok.
The announcement.made officially
at Mr. Hays' headquarters, came ae
a surprise to the moving picture
world, as after the acquittal of Arbuckle a week ago it was stated tbat
three new films made by bim before
the Rappe incident halted hie professional career, last September,
would be at once distributed for
showings. Contracts totalliug more
than 91,000,000 are involved in
these films, more than 10,000 book
ings having been made, it is said.
Mr. Hays' statement, after mentioning tbe conference at which both
producers and distributors of tbe
Arbuckle films were present, said
simply that "at my-request tbey
have cancelled all showings and
bookings of the Arbuckle films."
It wap regarded tonight as signifi
cant that Mr. Hays made no comment on Arbuckle'e acquittal. Hia
fiction is taken as ao indication tbat
he will become in fact tbe "Judge
Landis of tbe movies."
Eight geological and tbree topographical survey parties will carry
on the work of the Geological Survey of Canada in British Columbia
this summer, J. D. MacKenzie,head
of the British Columbia office,stated
tbis week on bis return to Van-
30uver from a visit to Ottawa.
While in the east he discussed
the work of the geological survey
in British Columbia with the director of tbe survey and the deputy
minister of mines.
"The amount of field work that
will be done this year will be virtually tbe same as was done in tbe
past two summers," said Mr. MacKenzie. "Detailed particulars of
the investigations to be undertaken
in British Columbia tbis summer
will be made public as soon as tbe
minister of mines has given his
format approval of tbe program."
Mr. MacKenzie said that much of
the geological and topographical
work would be devoted to tbe areas
of tbe Cariboo and Lillooet districts,
made.prominent by reoent gold discoveries.
"It is tbe policy of our office to
investigate regions where investigation is most needed," he said. ''The
purpose of a geological survey is to
assist mining men in the development of new territory and wherever
there is interest in new districts
tbere we try to give assistance."
Questioned about conditions io
the mining industry in eastern
Canada, Mr. MacKenzie stated that
mining men are looking forward
optimistically to tbis summer's work
and tbere is apparent a general feel
ing that business conditions will be
considerably improved in tbe latter
part of the year.
J. S. DOflScharaps, of Ross

Deschamps, who constructed
the 15 mile of roadway east
from Cascade last summer of
the link of transprovincial
highway.six miles having been
constructed the previous year
on the Rossland end by Maj.
Angus W. Davis, last Saturday night received a wire in
Rossland from Mr. Tierney,
who is in Victoria, to the effect thatj their firm had been
successful in the field of 9 tendering on - the 19- miles uncompleted aoad, it being the
intention of the government
to complete this stretch of the
road, which will put the
Boundary in close touch with
the Kootenay district.
It is stated that work on
road will be commenced at an
early date, and construction
will be carried on from both
ends. Several hundred workmen will be employed, and it
is expected that considerable
activity will develop.
southern states will average near
normal with highest temperatures
during weeks centering on 7 ono 24,
lowest during weeks centering on 17

fields in the world, having produced
since the early '60's eome sixty million dollars of placer gold. At tbe
present time tbe annual production
averages $70,000.
Hydraulic mines are being operated in the Barkerville and Keithly

creek and Antler creek.
There are large bodies of auriferous gravels carrying gold values at

The importance of seeding the
best clover and grass mixtnre or the
best alfalfa and grass mixture is
evident wben we realize tbat about
one-third of tbe improved land in
Canada is used for fodder crops.
From the many hundreds of grasses
that we bave today comparatively
few are known by the average man,
and in many cases some of tne more
common ones sbould be used to
better advantage. In 1917 an experiment was commenced to com
pare the yields of clover and grasses
witb similar mixtures of alfalfa and
grasses, for hay. The plots were
seeded in June and no crop was
harvested that year. Tbe crops were
irrigated wben necessary and two
cuttings were taken each yeat. During the winter of 1919 a great deal
of the clover was winterkilled, so
that tbe yields of tbe grass ai.d
clover plots were greatly reduced, the
third 'season. The following table
summarizes the results eacb year:

5—Alfalfa and Tall Oat  3.6
6—Alfalfa and mixinre of all  5.16
7—Alfalfa alone  4.41
For the first two seasons tbe
clover and grasses outyielded tbe
alfalfa and grasses, but due to the
fact that tbe clover winterkilled
very badly in 1919 and to tbe fact
tbat tbe alfalfa was now firmly established, the alfalfa and grasses
outyielded the cover and grasses
the third zeason. In tbia regard it
may be noted that red clover frequently winterkills in tbis district,
but so far alfalfa haB not suffered.
For tbe tbree year average the clover
and grasses came out ahead.
Increased yields were obtained by
tbo addition of a gnes seed to both
clover and alf <lfa. Meadow fescue
and clover gave the highest yield
for the tbree year average. This was

«MHri--M-H-.-a-H-H-H-M-H-M-M---H-H-H---W-H-l-H-H-B-i--«-l--W-M_--H-i-i
Last week The Sun, in ventnring a prediction as to the final outcome of tbe Genoa con
ference, adopted the safe method usually em
ployed by journals politically neutral—for
obvious reasons—in commenting on party
questions, by saying tbat tbe confab might be
fie means of bringing on another war or result
in everlasting peace. There were then factors
before the conference that supported both of
these views. A proposal to disarm Europe had
been made to the august body, and the nations divided on the question. This proposal was eliminated. However, during
the past few days the new^ from Genoa has
been decidedly belligerent owing to a secret
Russo-Gerqaan treaty having been negotiated
and signed. But this cloud has also passed
.over, and there are indications that the stormy
proceedings which have, up to thi present
time, characterized the sessions, will be succeeded by calm discussions on ecouomic questions affecting the world, and . that the con -
ference will not only result in many econmic
problems being solved, but that when the
delegates reach their homes there will be. a
more harmonious understanding among the
nations of Europe.
During the first twenty-one days of 1922
there were thirty-two murders and eighty-five
robberies in the city of New Zork. Those facts
are svidence enough that the criminal class is
astoundingly active there; and supported by
reports from other cities, they seem to show
an unusual outbreak of-he worst sort of disorder.   Somewhat similar news comes from
European cities.   The condition is perhaps an
inevitable consequence of the period of vio-
le ce and bloodshed through which the world
has passed? Whether the police are culpably
inefficient is hotly debated in New York. The
opponents of the present city administration
believe that they are; Mayor HXlan and his
friends are equally sure that they rare not.
WHY ARE THE HILLS?
Hills are for climbing. Tlieir function is to
prov'de a clearer view, wider horizons and
ozone for those who olimb. There are values
on the mountain-top which are not found in
the valley and the erring senses of location
and direction which are incidental to the low
altitude are corrected at the summit.
Even the labor of climbing is recompensed
to the climber with compound interest. The
energy spent is not at all commensurate With
the energy gained. The weariness of ihe climb
is nothing compared with the exhilaration tbal
follows it.
If there were no hills wise men would build
them as necessary for the soundness and sanity ofthe race.
Difficulties are hills—and their function i.-
the same—to lift us out of tho mists of thc
lowlands to a new altitude of wider vision and
greater" courage.
The man who bas no difficulties, no hills to
climb, is not to be congratulated'but to bc
pitied. When the favors were distributed lie-
was overlooked or he foolishly hold his hand
behind his back not knowing the value of the
thing offered.
Let him look about and by some means acquire a working interest in somebody's difficulties—anything so that he have hills to climb.
Ctlibre, a man's or a nation's, is the sum of
difficulties overcome—that mainly] and no!
much else. #
Our national pride is not in the possession
of lands, forests, mines or any other thirigs,
but iu bur history of difficulties overcome.
principles maintained, ideals achieved, for out
of these mountains came the endurance, the
patience, the self-confidence, the wisdom, that
make up the national character.
The ability to climb comes from climbing
and sufficient energy s always available:
"When I add difficulty I add brain."

Perhaps it would improve our climatic con
dition if a conference were held in this city of
all the Sunshine valleys in the country.
The fashion of auction sales has invaded the
automobile industry. Even as horses were
once a standard commodity that found a ready
sale at a fair price in city auction rooms, so it
is now with cars both new and secondhand.
Sale at auction is an excellent test of value.
"A good name is better than precious ointment," and those cars that have established a
reputation for service will probably bring good
prices.
Improvement in the method of extracting
aluminium bronght the price down from $5.00
a pound in 1888 to 18 cents in 1914. Then
the demands of war sent it up again to more
than three times 18 cents, but itis back again.
But German competition is casting its shadow
on the industry. Spoons that look like those
marked half a dollar a year ago are now on
sale for five cents apiece, but on the back in
plain letters is tho stamp, Germany.

train, and one of his first duties was to learn
the rules, as laid down in the rule book for
the safety of the train and passengers. He
prided himself on knowing them perfectly
Out' night the conductor going through the
sleeping car noted a red lantern hanging in the
passage way. He called lhe porter and asked
him what, the red lantern was doing there.
'.'Why, chief," said the porter, "I was just
carrying out the rules." "Never heard of any
rule calling for a red lantern in a sleeping
car," ansMered the conductor; "where did you
gat it from*" With an air of perfect positive-
ness the new porter got out his book of rules
and pointed to Rule 27.' "Caution—Always
hang out a red lantern when the rear of a
sleeper is exposed."

« takes the sportsman to prick
np his ears at the mention of the
•Mje. For be will probably know
•that near Kazubazua lies one of thc
5n1ffi.bJ0?_.t ■■*•■«•» In*, province,
•nd that it forms the base of many
-famous hunting expeditions.
Notable among tbese were the
two trips which have given the Oatl-
w«o a staunch friemfln Rex Beach.
Wfco claims to have hunted over
thousands of miles of country without finding anything that could
'town the Kazubacua region.
To Conn Teeple, a resident of
Kaaubaaua and the most renownej*
C Gatineau guides, a measure oV
-au. tfeachs enjoyment and success
la owtainly due.
Teeple, a spare, wiry man who
<wea not look his age—whatever it
Ml—has "called" moose for many a
hunter, but save for bears, whose
aklns adom his home, he does not
«an» "fer killinV
"He's an awful dear man," said a
neighbour of his one day, and when
Dp-eased to give a reason for Mr.
Teeple'* expressiveness, he expiated:
"He can spot a deer miles away.
Mama almost as if he could feel
'am in the air. Where nobody else
can bring in game. Conn Teeple can.
He knows by Tookin' at a hill whether
■Mwafs deer on it. Yep, he's an
«wful deer man, he is!"
Mr. Teeple'* tastes are frankly
*uraL ge looks with keen disfavour
upon metropolitan inventions, especially the motor car. Walking to
Wm ia the natural method of loco-
notion, though the advantages of a
"team" are at times apparent. He
walks 26 miles a day with true enjoyment, but one evening after
motoring sixteen miles, be returned
to his home exhausted. "Tuckered
right out," he complained. "It's a
orool strain on a fella', yon know,
joe' sattin'."
Ilie station at Kasnbazua holds Itself haughtily aloof from the. town.
Conveyances of every description
meet the trains and transport -travellers over a sort of sandy table-land,
Srofusely'covered'with blueberries
i summer, to tbe cluster of cottages
that form the village. This, blueberry
patch is about 9 miles in area and
its output would practically feed
Montreal. a
Kazubazua presents a very different" appearance to Low for example. The hills seem farther away,
the country is wilder, in spite of a
relatively larger settlement. Deer
are seen close by, bears are not unknown, moose drink at the "crick"
and yet telephone bells whirr in
almost every nome and three hours
travel will take one to the Capital
af tha Dominion.
(1) A typical view of the Gatineau River and Hills.
(2) Kazubazua has a main street.
There is a main street in Kazubazua, a carding mill, a cement plant
and a flour mill. Outside tbe latter
stand the old grinding stones that
were used in past years, and on the
main road there is an earthen oven,
upon which one might look as the
grandsire of our Community Kitchen. It has been extensively used
within recent times.
Kazubazua will not attract the
commonplace, the type of vacationist to whom six wardrobe trunks
and ten hatboxes are a necessity.
There isn't a moving picture palace
in the place, nor a Chinese restaurant, nor an apartment house!
There are two stores, however,
and gold has heen found in the district. This is true because at one
of the stores there are postcards for
:lo showing a robust looking gentleman leaning on a pick-axe and
shadowed by a huge mound, which
is supposed to represent pay dirt,
nrobably, but which sceptical non-
investors regard merely as a futile
attempt to alter the position of the
Gatineau hills.
There is a hearse at Kazubazua
Its functions ara not' confined to
those generally associated with that
melancholy carriage. On occasions
it will draw up smartly at the hotel,
the sombre-clad driver will jump
nimbly from his box and assist a
passenger to alight. Then, in a
hearty, tone quite at variance with
that he is wont to use, he will explain for the benefit of the gallery,
"Wern't no room in the rigs over
to the station, so I brought thia
fella' along with me. One dollar
please!"
Where is Kazubazua? What is it?
"Ask any of the men who from
now until the close nf the hunting
season may be seen driving their
motors along the main road and
into the hills. Observe the sportsmen's restless eye, the tonneau filled with camping equipment, listen'
for the intermittent bark of a gun
in the distancel Or, if an answer Is
not forthcoming from these signs,
sit at some bountiful table a little
later in the year, feast the jaded
palate upon a succulent steak of
venison or moose and ask, Where
ls Kazubazua? Vour huntsman host
will tell youl—Madge Macbeth.

T^am of Huskies for Quebec Visitors
The above interior view is one ofthe new steel dining cars which are the last
word in up-to-date railway construction.
There is not in all Canada a
louse-wife who would fail to be interested in the kitchen of one of the
new up-to-the-minute steel dining
cars that are every day moving to
and fro across this country. The
kitchenette of tne modern flat is
often ingeniously planned, but in-
geiuity could meet with no more
trying task than the putting of a
complete hotel kitchen into the space
afforded by a comparatively small
compartment in x railroad car. The
traveller to-day expects to find on
the railroad car almost anything In
the way of food that his fancy may
dictate, and he expects it served in
as perfect a manner as in a first-
class hotel. That is why th* hotel
kitchen must be condensed into the
dining car. A glance into this
kitchen will at once show how ingeniously this has been done, and
with what regard fot one hundred
yer cent, efficiency and the most
perfect cleanliness. Ranges, re-
Xzige-ataM, ami cooking utensil* re
flect the lights in their polished
nickle surfaces, and ready to hand
in ita well appointed place, is every
thing in the way of an aid to cook
ing that the experienced chef may
require.
What these miniature hotel kitchens can do may be gathered from
the fact that in the course of a
journey from Montreal to Van-
louver 11 meals are served en route,
and these to an average of 10- persons per meal. There are long
stretches during this run when it is
impossible to obtain supplies, so the
superintendent must sea to it that
the ice-boxes and larders of each
diner ara stocked to satisfy the
capricious appetites of the travellers
it serves. «
The importance of this branch of
a big railroad may be gathered from
the fact that the Canadian Pacific
Railway has in daily use 150 dining,
cafe and buffet cars, 'a larger number than operated by any other rail
road in the world. The department
also looks after the lunch counters,
and dining rooms scattered over its
19,000 miles of rail and to serve the
three and a half million meals that
are yearly partaken of by travellers
on this road,' requires the effort of
1,500 stewards, cooks, waiters and
other operatives. To serve thi*
large number of meals requires the
yearly consumption of the following
quantities Of supplies:—
Pish    286,000 Ibs.
Beef   781,529   "
Ham.and Bacon...  478-810   "
Poultry   478,612   "
Butter   848*10   "
Coffee    282,640   "
Tea    101,090   "
Apples   884*20   "
Potatoes 1,760,000   "
Eggs 8,829,800 only.
OFanges   106,000    "
Milk    790,660 quarts,
Cream    407,280    "
Bread   860*98 loavva,
One of the chief innovations at the I
Chateau Frontenac, Quebec, In connection with the winter sports oro
gramme is the introduction of a husky
dog team. In order to secure the gen-
uine animal a representative visited'
the North Country to select dojfs
suitable for this purpose. Previous
to the journey telegrams were sen:
to all important fur posts, north of
the Greift Lakes, but owing to the-
unusual conditions prevailing durinr
the fall of 1921, little success wa.
met with. A variety of replies wen
received — one Hudson's Bay Pos.'
sent word that owing to- the latenes;
of the "freeze up," and poor travel
ling conditions, Indian trappers were
still far in 'the interior with their
dogs, and were not expected out till
the New Year. Another factor replied that strange sickness, the
symptoms of which resembled distemper, wss affecting most' of the
dogs in his vicinity, and that he
would not advise their purchase. Another wired that fish was so scarce,
dogs were extremely thin and wicked, arid weaker members had been
sacrificed to provide food for the
larger and more useful dogs. The
value of husky dogs in tiie Canadian
'northern expanse is very high ar.<l
prices reach surprising proportion?
in the fall when each man sets out
to secure a string for his winter's
work. Due to the heavy expense
incurred in equipping and maintaining a team, the purse for the race
has been raised this year to attract
the most exacting trailers. Last
year pups were selling for $200 for
a string of five, whilst animals fully
grown and trained brought from 675
to $100 each.
The husky dog has been a -valuable servant to the men of the Canadian North, and his part in Northern development has been no small
one. His services arc still of inestimable worth in the transport
over snow-clad areas where no other
means  of   travel   exist,  where the
pioneers of civilization and progress
:ire blazing trails, and securing the
first, fruits of a wealth which only
time and the introduction of railroads wil! fully reveal for exploitation. The mounted pu'lee, trappers,
miners, prospectors, all men of tbe
snow-shoe trail, gallantly pay
:heir tributes to the part the husky
dog plays in their daily work.
The district north and west of
Nipigon promised success in securing huskies, as just before Christmas the Indians bring their fall
-atoh into the postj, where they
trade them for fresh supplies, beads,
firearms, and other articles which
they may require. The representative of the Chateau on arrival found
some 15 to 20 dog teams, but they
were a motley assortment, only a
few running true to type.
Teams were constantly coming
and going, and finally with a burst
of speed, a fast young outfit ap
proached the Hudson's Bar Post, and
at the command of "Ho" from the
Indian musher suddenly slowed up
and came te a stop. The leader was
i particularly young brown wolf-like
animal, and was named "Nipmainir-
hen," which translated means "Nipigon Wolf," and after various tests
.vas selected as one of the proposed
team. Finally the other focr were
purchased, as they proved to be one
of the fastest teams in that part of
■.li" country. Exceptional care was
.xercised in the selection as they
were to be used in the vicinity of
the Chateau Frontenac, at Quebec,
and naturally were bound to be
handled and petted to a certain extent by the guests and spectators.
Not having been trained together,
considerable trouble was experienced
_tt first. The Indian who assisted in
breaking them in said, "Take away
.he harness*- and let them make
friends." Ng sooner was this done
'han a regular pandemonium ensued
followed by  a glorious rough and
tumble fight, and it ,.** with great
difficulty they were separated. Tl-**
Indian merely^ grinned and said.
They are all "friends now." whi.-h
seemed to be the case, because after
a certain amount of sniffing and
licking they were again tested and
pulled much better. Ten to fiftefi)
miles a day were made by the team
without any individual loafing, and
so fast wer* they that the Indian
challenged a number of the other
teams around to a series of races,
and not once was the new team defeated. At last the animals were
shipped by the Canadian Pacific ta
Quebec City, and arrived in excellent
trim. The names of the dogs ar*
.omewhat interesting, being all Indian, and are as follows with th*
Knglish translation:
Nipmainghen. .Nipigon Waif
Wabus rhe Rabbit
Wabuska . . . .Whitey
Keego Fish
Muk From "Nakwa"
meaning bear.
At the age of nine months or ona
year the education of the Husky begins in earnest. He is broken to
harness learning, with older dogs,
to pull his share of the load. At
four years he has attained his full
rrowth and strength, a stalwart
wolf-build, half-wild, disdainful,
powerful, perfectly proportioned,
beautifully coated.
The harness is made of one long,
rontinujus side-trace connected,wilh
a saddle, and belly-hand around the
middles, and to head-collars which
rest on fore^'o-jldprs nnd receive
each dog's pulling- weight.
Th* Indians i...vi. particular cries
in which to guidp or incite the dog
learns- "Mush, ToyfayT, Tukok.' to
oax them into a gallop. Then "Ah

in his traces. "Hu, Corni" (leader).
