Member Says Marketing
Control Bill Is Illegal
Victoria, February IS.—The moat serious opposition
that has been evidenced during the present session of the
legislature to the marketing control bill was presented
by Captain Ian Mackenzie Thursday afternoon when he
claimed that the measure was ultra virus as interfering
with trade and commerce.
With this view Attorney General Manson sharply disagreed, but iPreroier Oliver, who has already Indicated
doubts of the same character, warned the house to go
slowly. Mr. Manson said the demand for the legislation
was so urgent that it should be passed and the question
of constitutionality left to the courts.
The premier added that it was the desire of the gov-
ernmJent to deal fairly with those who were Interested
in the better conditions of the fruit Industry, but he counselled that it would be wise to proceed slowly. He Bald
that in his opinion legislation of thos kind was dangerous.
The discussion arosethrough Captain Mackenzie having
risen to a special pont of order. He claimed that the
measure, if pssead, would be ultra virus of the legislature.
He also, added that tbe penalties proposed to be provided
by the bill would ibe contrary to the provisions of the
criminal code of Canada. They would, furthermore, provide for the confiscation ot property, which was contrary
to public policy.
Russia of Today
To start or not to start. That is the question these cold
mornings. And yet when you figure out just how the gas
ls fed through the carburetor, why there Is nothing to lt,
ITlio usual method is to get into the seat.crank the engine with Iho starter a few times and then if it seems
that the battery ih getting weak, get out and prime the
cylinders. iSonjietimes the driver overprimes the cylinders and the engine is "choked," ln which case he cranks
a few times to free tho cylinders of sdmia of the raw
gasoline. But priming by hand means lifting the hood,
getting a can of gasoline or priming mixture and pouring
it Into the petcocks. This is a-fine procedure for an up-
to-date motorist in zero weather with the ground cov
ered with snow and his body beginning to feel the effects
even of the fifteen minuteh' exposure.
When you prime you Introduce raw gasoline or a mixture right into the combustion chamber or Into the intake
manifold. Therefore, If you use the primer to any considerable extent and apply the choke freely, you are
bound to get excessive crankcase oil dilution. The
liquid fuel which happens to remain in the cylinders will
work down past the pistons. It lis for this reason that
you shoul avoid priming any more than you have to and
avoid avoid using the choke too freely.
One of the absolute essenllalh to easy starting Is good
ignition. Without this, even a good mixture is hard to
fire. The experienced motorist knows this and sees to
it that the battery is always kept well charged, that the
connections are clean and tight at every point in the Ignition system, that the plugs are clean and the gap is well
One of Hie greatest causeh of engine wear ts driving
with the "choke" ofut ln cold weather. Investigation
has shown thut the flood of gasoline pumped into the
cylinders is not ignited by the explosion and drains down
the cylinder walls into the crankcase and dilutes the oil.
gasoline washes away the oil film on the cylinder wallh
and causes metal to rub against metal. Scoring of the
cylinder walls and other costly damage results.
"Leaning" on the starter on cold mornings will soon
sap the life from a ibattery. If tlie engine falls after having "stepped on tho starter" get out and look for trouble.
A good way to start the car fn the morning during cold
weather is to use the crank to turn the engine over a few
tlmeh. This churns up the oil and makes starting easier,
with less drain on the battery.
May Kill Marketing Bill
Victoria, February IB.—If the fruit marketing bill passes
the legislature it will not be as a government bill, and
today-'s developments indisate that the sledding will be
exceedingly difficult for this contentious measure, which
has caused more comment than any other (bill in recent
It is definitely known that Attorney General Manson
and at least one other minister consider lt "dangerous"
Had the bill been confined solely to fruit marketing, all
might have well. However, when is was suggested that
forms of agricultural produce, particularly milk, might
come under a control bill, there was war at once,
Vancouver and Victoria officials feared a "combine"
and their attitude has materially lessened the chances of
the bill being adopted.
By. special arrangement a meeting of the agricultural
committee of the legislature will be held on Tuesday
morning, when all persons interested in the bill will be
heard. It ls hoped by the chairman, Dr. E. J Hothwell,
to dispose of the committee's work at this meeting, after
which the contentious bill will be thrown into the legislature for flnal disposal.

Ottawt, February 16.—The two most western provinces
will look in vain for Increases in the federal estimates tabled In the house yeBterday.
Capital earmarked for public works in British Colum-
bit shows a distinct shrinkage over that of last year.
Only $170,000 goes to the Esquimau drydock, as compared with $570,004 during 1925-26; public buildings get
but $243,262, or $17,000 less; and harbors and rivers $299,-
500, or $36,000 less.
Alberta will have $32,000 spent upon her public buildings, which is a drop of $8000, but should gain something
from the added expenditure on national parks, and also
from a more generous administration of the Canada Grain
act and management,operation and maintenance of ele-
tods, to which an added $82,000 ls devoted.
Taking it all in all, the drastic hand of economy is writ
large over the latest government blue book.
Edison Hos Busy Day
on 80th Anniversary
Wlest Orange, N. J., February 1i—The eightieth anniversary of his birth was a hard day for Thomas A. Edison. There v*ere honoris aplenty, but newspapermen
kept him busy for hours with questions on itambrtallty,
science, theology, cosmology and politics.
"Spiritualism is the 'bunk,'" the wizard said,
i His views on tmimortality, expressed at a previous Interview, were unchanged, Edison said. He proposed that
every. known fact aljdut immortality be put in a column
against every fact contrary to the belief.
- "Then," he said, "in time we might find in summing
up that there were 56 per cent In favor and 44 per cent
against immortality.
"The word God has no meaning to me. But I do believe that there is a supreme intelligence pervading the
universe, and at times I believe that when a mhn dies the
swarms of billions of highly organized entitles which
live in the cells, desert the body, go out into space, keep
on, and enter another and'last cycle."
Vernon, February 18,—The death occurred late Wed
nesday afternoon at the Vernon Jubilee hosptal, of Mrs.
Jessie Stuart MacKelvie, relict of the late J. A. MacKelvie, M.P. and former editor of the' Vernon News, thc

The relatives of the late Mrs. MacKelvie are Mrs. Wlm
Martin, Vernon, who was Mrs. MacKelvie's niece, and

The late Mrs. -MacKelvie has been failing for some time.
She was very ill Friday night and was taken to the hospital Saturday morning .with little hope of her recovery.
The funeral service will be held from All Saints churoh,
Vernon, on Friday morning at 11 o'clock.
Montreal, February 15.—Estimated profits for 1926 nf
the Consolidated Mining & Smelting company were $8.-
1615,735.64, after deductions are made for depletion, depreciation, contingent account taxes, and after deducting
$2,274,771.66 for additions to properties through uroflt
ahd loss.
This was announced tl^s afternoon after a meeting of
the directors of the company. Profits for the year 1926
were $6,2-19,843.14.
Little has been noted of the real test whifh is voing
on inside Soviet Russia in recent years because th*,
clamor of theory and proclamations has filled the ears of
the world. Theories have been meeting industrialism
which is so universal In humanity, unwritten rules of life
and trade which have developed throgh the ages, and
world laws which centuries have formulated for nations.
Russia is the world's largest country, stretching across
two coetinents, and when theory and practice reah a balance, the test of a new system of government will have
world-wide e ect.
Politically, it is diveded Into six constituent republcs;
they in tudn comprise thirty-three autonomous units,
each differing ethnoogically and culturally. Most of them
thave their own language, their own costumes and costumes, and*the babel of tongues' becomes even greater
from the tribes who are as yet too backward for self-
Cities and villages string along the railroads and rivers
over all tbat vast territory. As one rides over the Siberian steppes the plains seem unending. Then a peasant's cart is seen in the distance the invariable dog trot-
ing behind. Soon appear otber carts, all going in the
same direction.
Then a village of log houses, with perhaps a public
building and a departed aristocrat's brick house, always
painted white, and the ever-present church, with its five
Turkinsh-sbaped towers, the large one ln the center ior
Christ, and the smaller ones on the corners for the four
Gospels. The train vanishes again over the unending
plains.varied only by stretches of forest or hills, which
seem to come and go as suddenly as the villages.
Moscow, the metropolis and capital of Russia, is the
largest village in the world. Moscow has its trolley cars,
electric lights, tall buildings, theaters, stores, motor buss
es, and other outward metropolitan manifestations, but
at heart it is a village. Leningrad, Odessa, and even
some of the cities of the nterior have an appearance antl
an atmosphere of western Europe; Moscow is the heart
of. Russia and it changes slowly.
Moscow It sprinkled with what is new, but everywhere
it speaks of age, from the weather-beaten walls of the
Inner City to battlemented monastaries on the outskirts.
Broad thoroughfares radiate from its center, but around
each corner the streets are narrow, with sidewalks no
wider than footpaths.
Fires have wiped it away, invaders, from Tartars to
Napoleon, have destroyed it, governments have eome
and gone, but Moscow, stubborn and dull, has persisted.
It symbolizes Russia.
It is only step from Moscow, overcrowded and teeming
with its peoples of many races, with rules for every movement and police to enforcethem, into the wild, wide-open
spaces.Wolves andl bears stil roam in the Moscow district, and when the bull winter dusk comes at 2 o'clock
ln the afternoon and the country is under its white mantle of snow, hunger drives them to prey on mankind.
In daylight hours a constant human stream jostles
through the towered Iberian gate in Moscow in the wall
between the Red Square and the Place of the Revolution
outside the Kital Gorod (Fortified City). Men ln sheepskin coats, the greasy leather outside and the fur inside;
Clerks in glossy leather jackets; officials with beaver collars, brief cases under their arm)*; women in felt boots;
girls in slippers, with bundles, babies, and carts, were
tramping through the slush.
Begging is a lucrative profession in Russia except for
the few days of sporadic police roundups. Beggars are
of all types and both sexes, from infants who toddle under foot while an older head directs them from the sidelines, to husky rascals faithful to a vow of "I won't work."
Differing from the whining beggars are the 200,000 or
300,000 homeless children, pariahs of the social order,
ragged, sooty-faced from sleeping in the embers of street
repair gangs' furnaces, dirty, diseased, dope-poisoned,
and desverete.   They run In vacks.
A gang straggles through the gate, hugging the curb,
eyes alert, the world a potential enemy, plan of action
decided. The leader grabs a woman's handbag, a man's
fur cap, and overturns an unwary peddler's baskot of apples. Tiie basket ls picked clean, and with wild screams
the gang ls gone, scattering through tho streets, policemen and pedehtrians ln vain pursuit.
In several cities homes are maintained by the government for these young vagabonds—heritage of war nnd
revolution, fbut augmented everp month by wanderlust--
with baths, clean cots, clothes, food.und a caretaker to
give them* instruction and advice. Personal liberty goes
amiss this social group, too young to appreciate civic responsibility even tf they had been taught it. Police antl
social workers periodically round up the wild untamed
children and put them in the homes.
The crowds elbow through the white-painted brick
gates, In and out of the iRed Square, between a gauntlet
of venders. Baskets and clumsy little wagons are on the
curb; also flabby, brown, Ifrozen apples for a cent.and
fat ones, carefully sheltered under blankets' for 40 cents

"We are again," Mr. Robb said, "to the happy position
of being able ito report a continued story of progress for
the current fiscal year, which closeB on the 3lBt day of
the coming month."
Tax reductions in today's budget briefly are:
Sales tax cut by 20 .er cent; I. e., rate reduced from
5 to 4 per cent, effective tomorrow.
Income tax cut by 10 per cent all around, applicable
to the year's assessment.
Stamp tax: Exemption increased from $5 to $10. All
chepues, etc., over $10 bear flat rate of 2 cents, e.ective
July 7.
Stamp tax on overdrafts and advances abolished.
Special war revenue act amended to make It clear that
printers are liable to sales tax.
No tariff changes.
Other annoucements in the speech were:
Estimated reduction in net debt during present fiiscal
year of $31,000,000, making a reduction of $95,000,000 in
the national debt in four years.
Net debt reduction of 1925-26, $27,706,586, as against
$22,353,000, the estimate in the last budget speech.
Total revenue for present fiscal year estimated at $294,-
800,000, an increase of $11,900,000 over 1925-26.
Total expenditures for present fiscal year estimated
$360,000,000, an  increase of $5,400,000 over 192546.
Estimated surplus over expenditure in present fiscal
year, $34,200,000. From this $2,000,000 is deducted for
reduction in value of soldier settlement loans, leaving
$31,000,000 estimated reduction In the net debt.
Mr. Robb further intimated that when the $29,068,400
five and a half per cent falls due on November 1, part
will be redeemed in cash if finances permit. The remainder will be redeemed by floating a new loan at reduced
rate of interest. When $63,427,250 in 51-2 per cent Victory bonds maturio on December 1, it will be met by floating a new loan at lower interest.
This re-financing will, it is estimated, result In an annual saving in interest charges of a million dollars.
Reviewing trade conditions, Mr. Robb gave the eat*
mated favorable trade balance for the present fiscal year
as approximately $200,000,000.. The policy of the government bad been to promote trade relations with other countries and particularly to strengthen our trade with the
"FViur years ago when I presented my first budget,"
Mr. Robb continued, "Canada was still suffering from
tho effect of post-war depression. Today, all traces of
that depression have disappeared; a spirit of optimism
is general and our domestic and international trade ia
flourishing. Let uh continue to build solidly. Let lis
shun extravagance and waste. Let us have faith in the
future. We can have no higher resolve in this, the dia-
mond jubilee of our confederation, than as Canadians wo
remain forever united and work for the lasting prosperity
and progress of this our glorious land—Canada."
In vart the minister of finance stated:
"Our estimated total expenditures of $360,600,000 deducted from our estimated revenues of $394,800,000 will
leave a surplus of $34,200,000 of revenue over expenditures. . To arrive, however, at ihe probable reduction
of over $31,000,00(1 m our net debt, it will be necessary
lo deduct from this surplus $2,000,000 representing a reduction In the value of soldier settlement loans whicli at
the close of our previous year appeared in the balance
sheet* as a live asset.
"Chapter 53 of tho statutes of 1925 amended tbe soldiers' settlement act of IS I!) and provided for the revaluation of livestock purchased for settlers by the Soldier Settlement bonrd. The act provided that a reduction of 40
per cent on the purchase price be allowed to soldier settlers for whom livestock was purchused prior to October
1, 1920, and a reduction of 20 per cent to soldier settlers
for whom purchases were made between October 1,
1920, and October I, 1921. Calculations have now been
mado  which  will   reduce  our assets,    subject  to    minor
amendments, by some $2,900,000.

"The alchemists of three or four centuries ago were
the chemists of their day," says Dr. K. R Pree, writing
in the Forum,. "They were honest, industrious, respect
ed. It is always unwise to imagine that the great men
of another age were either knaves or fools. We define
gold, today, in a chemical fashion. We know of certain
chemical tests to which the atom of no element except
gold will respond. We apply these tests. If they fail wt
say that the substance before us is not gold, no mattei
how gilt it Way toe hpr how gold-like may be its properties. This ts a new way to define gold. The alchemists
had na acquaintance with atoms nor were they much concerned with chemical tests. When they wanted gold,
what they wanted was something which would look like
gold, would feel like' gold, would behave like gold against
the air and water arid lire. Such tesls constituted their
deflnition-of goldlf a metal met them, that was enough.
It is distinctly possible that a number of tlle alchemical
procedures really did produce just th;-—not gold as we
define it, but something just as good; something that was
gold as the alchemists defined it. A number of them recorded that they had made gold; they left directions for
making it. Either thoy were frightful liars or tliey hail
made something that suited them. And lt is not very
probable that they were liars. We know how to make today a number of alloys that looks enough like gold to be
Its twin. Even jewelers have been fooled by some of
these alloys. 1'robably this fs just what a lew of our ancient fellow chemists did and'what they considered,
rightly enough, to be a considerable success."

In the old days all shipping advertisements in the
papers used to be embelished with a picture of a ship.
At first they were all sailing ships, but gradually the
steamers came under the reader's eye. Column after
column of some of the papers used to be filled with these
advertisements, and a great fleet of vessels used to appear fn print dally. It made the papers a bit more In-
terestin g to those who could not read, and illiterate
sailors used to spend much of their time criticizing the
cuts and ridiculing the advertisers who used pictures of
brigs to advertise full-riggers. A good story is told of
an old pilot, of the early days, a good old sailor, but absolutely illiterate. Ho picked up a paper in a stall In a

Vernon, February 15.—Are we jus-
tlvted % making a fresh start with
tobacco growing in British Columbia?
Before answering the question one
must review the history of previous
attempts to cultivate this plant. It
was Hrst grown by the Indians, as Is
shown by the exlstehce here and
there pf tye, wild plant. By white
men it was grown first about twenty
years ago in the Okanagan valley,
One of the earliest growers is still
alive and continues to take an interest in the crop. Cuban varieties of
different kinds were grown and manufactured Into cigars of good quality
at Kelowna in the early years of this
'     ■■ Mi ■ ■   !  ■ ■:-■-. ■■ '    '...-■
Then came the unfortunate episode
of 1912, when ' the British North
America Tobacco company came to
grow the plaint on a commercial scale
Very fine work was done by ithe man*
ager. A large sum of money was
spent on production of 100 tons of
good1 tobacco, Twenty drying shed*
werejput up, and are, standing today.
The company suddenjy went out, :of
bus iness. The public here did nof
understand what had happened, and,
jumped to the conclusion1 that tobacco growing In British OoluiiiWa wns
a failure.   It was not.        ,
Then cume the great war and after

onl beginning to recover. There are
those who have never loht faith In
tobatco as a good alternative, or •supplement , to fruit growing. They
have protested against farmers putting all their eggs in one basket.
Tlfese men j are lifting up their,
headp again now.- There are signs
of capital being invested in the
growjth of the weed on a large scalei
Some have' gone on experimentally,
testing soils and their suitability
for diffei-ant varieties. They have,
beyond all doubt, succeeded in establishing the' fact that, we can grow
live or sly kinds of tobacco of exceptionally fine quality, in various parts
of the valley. 1
One man grew thirteen acres of
fine .-simmer Spanish on. a bench 1500
feet above the Okanagan lake and
cured It by artificial heat. The writer
ha s grown Vuelta Abajo (Cuban),
White Burley and Virginia "Hoster."
Several; other growers havo successfully grown Connecticut seed leaf
and other kinds of cigar tobacco.

North! American continent that can

The climate and soil of this valley
are erbilnpntly suited for growing tobacco, far bptti-r suited, in fact, than
Ontario or Quebec, the provincse
which in 1926 produced 20,000,000 lbs.
of merchantable tobacco. There are
thousands of acres in the vicinity of
Oliverrfndl Keremeos and large tracts
as tali-11 north as Vernon where the
crop may' be gtfown to advantage.
WMli' regard tp marketing, let me
remind! i'*eadteri that, for tobacco,
there is a world's market, the chfef
centers of which, outside the United
■States , are Liverpool, Amsterdam
and Hattlbttrg, all of them easy to
reach frdtt' Vancouver via tne Panama canal.
Al 1 that is required is to have a
bonded warehouse for sorting and
racking. I understand there is likelihood of the establishment of a concern of this kind, with ample capital,
iu Vancouver.
There Is now a fine opportunity for
reviving and encouraging this industry and at the saline time a grond
chance for the British Columbia gov-,
ernment to pull the lilver hettlement
out of the hole.
That colony can grow cantaloupes
and perhaps other fruits. But melons cap easily be overproduced for a
limited market, and other kinds of
have not altogether proven satisfactory to the growers—but tobacco we
can not overproduce.
A hundred million pounds would
make very llttlo difference in a world
market, and tobacco will keep for
years if properly stored, not merely
without deteriorating, but with positive benefit to its quality.
Arrangements arenow being made
for growl ng about 1000 tons during
thc coming season. If resulth are as
good us expected, many skilled planters will be coming from south of the
Hue to buy land and settle here.
For these and other reasons we are
justified in confidently predicting
that tobacco has come, this time' to
stay, and that In the production of
tbis crop will be found one of the
chief props in building up the prosperity of the Okanagan, and some
other districts as well, a result devoutly desired for the welfare of all
who live in the privince.
