Victoria,   January    24.—The   long
drawn-out  debate on the reply to the
address   on tbe reply to the speech
from   the   throne,   came   to a close
Monday   afternoon   with a short speech   by Dugald McPherson,  M.P.P., Grand Forks-Greenwood,  who  was  accorded one ol" the most attentive hearings ot any of the
speakers in the two weeks' discussion which haa preceded.
Mr. McPherson made a plea, which wus applauded from
both galleries of the chamber, for consideration for the
It was an economi* question, he said, and must be so
considered. The country must determine what It was
worth to bave the agriculturists on the land; and what
it was worth to the ueoule to keep them there. It was
poor economy, he continued, to try to squeeze more out of
the farmers than they could get out of their land.
It was poor business also—and an economic folly—to
permit conditions which forced one farmer off his land
and have another one take it over, only in turn to fall. It
would be*, the part of wisdom td arrange things that the
original farmer could remain and develop his place.
Mr. McPbeirson denied that under the government patronage had become an evil, and contrasted conditions
today with those under the Conservative government.
He created considerable interest in the house wben he
pictured the manner in which the Doukhobors were now
sending their children to school, and said that only lack
of accomtmodation pirevented a larger enrollment. Nine
schools had been constructed by the Doukhobors since
the government took firm action in the spring of 1925.
Mr. McPherson gtronglp defended the government in
the legislature, although he offered some constructive
suggestions and criticisms. He paid a tribute to It. H.
Pooley, house leader of the opposition and said he regretted that Mr. Pooley was not to remain in his present
position. fl
The new leader, Hon. S. Tolmie, was criticizing the
government, although he did not see fit to announce his
own policies, said Mr. 'McPherson.    .
"The people of this province are entitled to know that
policy," he added, "else how can they which way to vote."
Mr. McPherson said the electorate was foolish to cry
economy when public serviice had to be maintained. He
remarked that during the ten years of (Liberal rule the
gross pugllc debt had increased $r,5,0OD,000. This was
due to three reasons. The first was the deficit left by
the Conservative administration; the second the construc-
tino of many niew institutions, and the third the provision of sinking funds.
He commented upon the proposal that the road program for the next few years would cost $18,000,000, according to engineers' estimates. If tbis figure were set by
tbem, he askled, how much greater the demands. Of the
public must be. Probably it would cost $100,000,000 to
build all the roads asked for.
To urge economy ln the face of public requirements was
nonsense, said Mr. McPherson.
He agreed that liquor should be divorced from politics.
He said the "spotter" was a very much disliked individual, but he felt that the attorney general must have stool
pigeons to enforce tbe laws. However, these employees
should be controlled and it should not be necessary for
them to go down into the gutter to get their evidence.

Benefits Farmers
Victoria, January 27.—The fruit growers, who appeared
before the select stndlng committee at the parliment buildings, arrived In the city ready for action. They are earnest
men impressed with the lmlportnce of their mission and
they claim that thefrult growers have enough problems ul
a cultural nature to so ve without having to worry about
marketing results.
These men state that those not engaged in the business
have little idea of the highly scientific nature of the fruit
growing indusry. The"growers are subject to the vagaries
of the weather, which may Ibe Ideal for tourists and thoBe
seeking health, but injurious ton ripening fruit. Then
there in the question of insect pest control, which entails
a great deal of not only know edge b t patience to apply
that knowledge in a practical way.
Codling moth has been one of the greatest enemies of
the grower, but the human element enters Into the obstacles met with in dealing with that subject and those nasty
words, "conicpulsory legislation," have had to be resorted
to to protect the investments of the growers on account
of the unwillingness of some to adequate y spray their
In this connection the fruit men pay a glowing tribute
to the value to the district of the Oliver Chemical Works
at Penticton, the manager of which is the son of Hon.
John Oliver, premier of British Columbia. Through advanced methods of production the plant has been able to
effect a very considerable saving to the growers In tie
matter of reduced prices on spraying materials.
While the price "was formerly $16 per barrel, it is now
reduced through the action of the Oliver Chemical company to $11.50, and the barrels are repurchased by the
com|pa-iy, making the cost approximate^ $10.50 net for
the spray.
Previous to. 1923 the Okanagan growers paid $30 per
barrel for roller leaf moth spray. Por one season the OH
ver Chemical company manufactured this sprap on the
formula of the Hood River Spray company, one of the .largest spray companies on thecontinent, and the Penticton
plant was able to reduce the cost to the grower to $22.60
per barrel.
Two years ago a new formula was worked out by the
Oliver company for this spray, and they are now supplying the growers with a superior oil spray at approximately $16.60 per barrel. It is a tribute to the Oliver company that the Hood Klver company is now manufacturing the Oliver formula.
About a month ago Charles E. Iliver, the manager of
the plant, returned to Penticton from Hood River, where
he had been superintending the erection of a new plant
for the spray companp there, which has also adopted Mr.
Oliver's formula for lime sulphur spray.
In connection with the serious outbreak of grasshoppers in the Okanagan and the range country in different
districts of ithe province, the. Oliver Chemicle company
has been able to supplp sodium arsenlte at favorable
prices. Formerly this material was Imported from the
Mr. McPherson advocated conservation of forest wealth UMti tts there was no plant manufacturing it in British
and he suggested the employment of "lookouts" before
the fire season started.
The speaker dwelt briefly upon the Doukhabor question. There is a large settlement of these in his riding.
Many schools hod been burned down, lie explained, but
many had been rebuilt at the Doukhobors' own expense
and 633 Doukhobor. children were attending school in
his constituency.
Touching on the fruit growers problems, Mr. McPherson said tbe issue was serious. He suggested Premier
Mussolini, Jack Dempsey and Aimee Semple McPherson
as a ' board which might be able to cope with the situation.

and molasses as ai bait to poison the grasshoppers.
"Mr. Oliver has been experimenting recently to provide
for the utilization of fruit rejected by the Penticton packing house. Tihese tests have been made with piums, cher
ries, apricots and peaches. Sinmilarly he has handled 350
tons of apples rejected by the packing house, making both
sweet and boiled cider. He has recently installed large
tanks for cider vinegar and hard cider.
The pervading personality whose influence has been
so noticeably felt in the organization of the plant and in
the research work necessarp for the improved methods
of manufacture is Charles E. Oliver ,who has acquired a
very enviable reputation as a chemist.
He is still a young man, having been born in 1892 on
his father's farm in the Dielta. In 1916 he completed a
five-year course at Toronto University, being an honor
graduate ln chemical science, after which he was engaged
in munition factories at Berthamboy, New Jersey, where
explosives were manufactured for the allies.
At the request of officials of the Dominion government
he took charge of work of molybdenum separation at
Hulls QUe., and was also engaged at the Moss mine at
Ruyon, Que., and later joined the Royal Flying Corps.
After close of hostilities he was engaged with the Canadian Consolidated Mining & Smelting company as a
research chemist, but n 1921 he undertook experimental
work at Vernon for the manufacture of lime sulphur apray
by a new process.
As a result of theBe researches he organized in 1923
the Oliver Chemical Company Limited, which purchased
a site and erected a plant at Penticton. It was in this
connection that the Interested his lather, Hon.John Oliver,
to invest sufficient capital as a shareholder to permit of
the undertaking being a reasonable success. It was a
venture with some risk attached thereto, but Hon. Mr.
Oliver bad such confidence in his son's ability, ahd the
need of a plant to imanufacture sprays at home in the
Okanagan was so evident, that he risked the Investment
in which tbe company has made an expenditure of approx-
imatelp $32,000.
1 Not only bas tbe plant been a success from the stand
point of tbe promoters, but more so from that of the growers, who have been able to get spray materials at lower
prices tban prevailed previously for imported sprays.
1 Victoria, January 26.—tFinal decision of tbe joint meeting with the agricultural committee ended in a decision being reached to have a committee of eight appointedto confer with tbe house committee in drafting a bill covering
control ot marketing of fruit, tbe bill to be submitted to

(Prepared by the National Geographic Society, Washington, D. C, for American readers.)
The epoch-making decision of the so-called imperial conference in London recently, that the principal dominions
of the British empire shall become practically Independent, completely self-governing states, centers particular
Interest on each of the tbreeremoter big units, Canada,
Australia and South Africa, Among these three dominions Canada uaturally looms largest and most important
to Americans since for thousands of miles only a surveyed
line separates its territory from our own. But Canada is
actually the largest and most important of the three. It
population is close to. 9,500,000, and its area is more than
3,600,000 spuare miles, placing it ahead of Australia and
South Africa.
The Canadian government, as it is now constituted,
iowes its existence to the British North America Act of
1867. The act states that the Canadian constitution shall
be similar in principle to that of Great Britain. Naturally nothing is said in the document in regard to the constitution of the United States, but it is known that the members of the constitutional convention had our constitution
clearly in niiincl and used it and its history as a guide.
The central igovernment is made up of nine united provinces, andi as with us authority is divided between the
main government and Its units. The legislative branch
consists of a senate width a fixed number of members from
each province, and a house of commons whose members
are elected in proportion to population.
Here tbe superficial resemblances to the government
of the United States cease. There is no elected official
comparable to our president. Instead the executive is a
governor general appointed bp the king. Heretofore this
appointee haB practically represented the British government in Cantda, but as a result of the recent pronouncement of the imperial .conference he will hereafter be shorn
of his statuB.
The Canadian senate is a sort of dominion house of lords
without the titles. Its members are appointed, not elected, and they hold office for life. The provinces do not
have an equal representation as do the staes. There are
24 senators each from, Ontario and Quebec,10 each from
Nova Scotia and New Brunswick, 4 from Prince Edward I
Island.aml 6 each from Manitoba, British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan.
Although the Canadians followed in a way the form of
our Union, they directly reversed one important principle.
In the United States the states retain all powers not specifically delegated to the central government; in Canada
the central government has all powers not specifically
given to the provinces.
Most of Canada's population is concentrated in a
izone about 250 miles wide along the United States Can*
adian boundary. And within this zone the concentration
Is heaviest quite close to the border. Inhabited Canada,
then, ls in effect a ribbon of territory 3000 miles long,
stretching from iocean to ocean.
Approaching from/ the east, one first reaches the maritime provinces. Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and
New Brunswick. (Newfoundland, adjoining these three,
it should be mentioned, is not a part of Canada, but a
separate colony). The maritime provinces, all small, are
the only ones which are fairly evenly settled throughout,
Quebec has a'population of nearly two and a halt millions, but most of this is in tbe region close to the St.
Lawrence river, and south of the Canadian National railway. From this inhabited zone the province stretches off
northward, beside Hudson bay and on the Hudson strait,
farther north than the southern tip of Greenland.
Even Ontario, southernmost of the larger provinces and
most populous of them all, is undeveloped and very meag-
erly settled ln Its northern half. It reaches Hudson bay
in tbe north. The third province to touch Huason bay is
Manitoba. This province, like the otlier two named, ls
marked by a populous southern zone around Winnipeg,
and the almost deserted lands to tbe north nearer the bay.
Just north of the developed region in all three of these
provinces are dense forests, in which clearings are beginning tomuku their way as they did in the Middle West of
the United States In pioneer days. Much farther north,
wherever the ground is low, ls the "muskeg" country, a
region of grassy marshes in summer, and frozen wastes
in winter.
Hudson bay, surrounded by Canadian territory, ls one
of the most characteristic features on the map of North
America, standing out as strikingly as the Gulf of Mexico,
On tbe west coast are Port Churcbill, the bay's bost
port, and about a hundred miles to the north, Port Nelson,
both ln Manitoba. These ports are to be connected by
railroads With Winnipeg and tlio wheat and cattle country to the west.
The three proirie provinces of Canada—Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta—may well be considered together,
for among them they cover all of Canada which ls in
process of being settled, weat of the older Great Lake
province of Ontario and east of the Rocky mountains.
The predominant part of the population and development of the tbree provinces is in their southern halves. In
this region Winnipeg, Capital of Manitoba, with its population close to 200,000, is Canada's Chicago of a generation or so ago; while Edmonton, capital of Alberta, is the
St. Paul of a similar period. The northern portion of tbe
provinces is a region crossed by many rivers and dotted
with numberless lakes.
Even more of a wilderness are the territories of Kee-
watln and Mackenzie, which extend from the prairie provinces northward to the Polar seas. Most of tbls region
has been explored only along the largest rivers and lakes.
Innumerable lakes are to be found there, and between
them much of the region is muskeg country. Farther
west, adjoining Alaska, lies the Yukon territory, well
known for its gold rushes. This is a mountainous and
plateau region, rich in many kinds of minerals. As yet
it is practically without railways.

Victoria, January 26.—Did the Kamloops Conservative
convention choose a provincial leader of the party who
had no intention of leading In tbe generally accepted
sense of the term?
This is one of the questions which is being asked in
the corridors of the parliament buildings by quite a number of opposition supporters who are beginning to realize
the unheard-of situation of a party leader attempting to
lead at a range of nearly three three thousand miles,
Col. Lister has announced—an inadvertance which, it is
understood, considerably perturbed Dr. Tolmie and his
supporters—that the provincial leader does not propose to
seek election to the legislature until the next general election. Now that the cat is out of the bag, however. Conservative members of the house are keenly aware of the
anomalous (position in whioh they in this regard.
The less enthusiastic supporters of Dr. Tolmie, while
good Conservatives, are seriouslp asking themselves how
their leader ls going to keep himself posted on the marcb
of events, to say nothing of taking responsigility for his
party's actions, unless be Ibe on tbe spot for dailp consultation. ,
So far tbey have not been able to find an answer whicb
will satisfy them to this question.
Victoria, January 2 .—In the legislature the other day
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands, completely answered tbose critics of the government's timber policy
who are continually charging that this province's raw logs
are going to the United States In too great a quantity
and at the expense ot British Columbia's, industrial expansion. I
Mr. Pattullo showed that the total cut last year was
three billion feet, and that the export of logs in the raw
inproportion to the total cut was about 7 per cent, or 4
per cent less than the export of raw material from little
Finland. The minister also showed that out Of the 22.",-
000,000 feet in logs that left British Columbia last year,
170,000,000 feet went to Japan and not to the United
States at all. And, what is more informative still, only
about 50,000,000 feet of these were cut from licensed areai;
under tbe control of the government.
Apart from the well-known fact that most of these raw
logs are of low grade timber and not easily marketable
when they come in competition with [European timbers
—as they do—it should not be forgotten that in the preparation of the export of those logs to Japan—with a small
proportion to the United States—a good deal of employment ls found for British Columbians. He does not propose to take awap their means of a livelihood and drive
them across tbe border.

Confronted with the alternatives of taking what he could

tbe belief that a better bargain could be made two years
hence, the minister of finance decided on the latter. He
has had the gratifl of closing a contract with the Bank of
Montreal on very good terms.
Incidentally it may be noted that Mr. Jones has given
the Hon. Dr. MacLean an opportunity o. onco again Knocking the bottom out ofthefavorite allegations or tne opposition on the subject of provincial indebtedness. Tbe.
member for South Okanagan is the opposition watch-dog
on all financial matters. He put to the government recently a series of questions 'designed to bring out the
facts. When they were answered it apj eared that the net
debt of the province was only some forty-five million
dollars instead of the eighty ni'illions- -there was even
mention of "approaching a hundred millions"—that had
been broadcast all over the province. The gross debt, it
is true, is about seventy-seven millions, but from that Dr.
MacLean deducts the amount put away in sinking funds,
approximately fourteen millions, and some seventeen millions invested in revenue producing undertakings.
Public debt is of two kinds. Money is borrowed and
put into capital expenditure, such as roads and bridges,
courthouses and similar non-producing works. Prom the
standpoint of tlie taxpayer such borrowings are an addition to the debt for the simple reason that sooner or
later he will have to repay them.lt is ti different matter,
however, when money is put into projects which will return both principal and interest. The taxpayer is responsible for repapment to the lender but with the obligation
he gets the means of meeting it. Mr. Jones will undoubtedly he able to show that the government is not justified
n eliminating the entire revenue-producing debt from the
gross debt in order to arrive at its net debt, for some ol
the items seem to earn their revenue through the dubious channel of constantly growing bcok entries. Until
a careful and critical analysis of the so-called revenue-
producing debt, is made, however, it will be ilnrpossiblo
to tell just what the net debt really is; but that Dr. Mac-
Lean is verp near the mark there is no reasonable doubt.

"The White Empresses of the Pacific
A striking: note of interest comes in
one of the first announcements
for 1927 from the office of the Chairman of the Canadian Pacific Steamships, Mr. E. W. Beatty. "The
White Empresses of the Pacific" will
again be the connecting transportation link between Canada and the
Orient. The company's palatial fleet
of monster steamships on the Pacific
ocqan will assume its former glory of
being.garbed in white.-

Vancouver on Jan. 24, and will be the
first to arrive in Canadian watera

paint will be topped off by a suitable
shade of Pacilic blue around the
sheer line streak of the vessels. This
was used when tba thm-fu-uul fleet
was formerly painted whits, and the
effect acclaimed the ships among the
most attractive in world commerce.
On Feb. 13 the blue-ribbon -hip
of the Pacific, the 21,500 ton Empress
of Canada, will arrive in Vancouver
clad in white. Holding the,Pacific
speed record of fifteen days, twenty-
one hours from Hongkong to Vancouver and from Yokohama to the
Canadian port iu eight days, ten
hours and fifty-three minutes, the
blue Tine from stem to stern will be a
fitting tribute to the flagship's power
and to Canada's enterprising trade
relations with the Far East.

annual overhaul in Hongkong and
will complete the fleet to be known
as "The White Empresses of the
Pacific.','- .
As Royal Mail ships these Canadian Pacific Empresses have been
supreme in the trade between
America and Asia, being the largest
and fastest on the Pacific route. Their
service is augmented by being the
important link between Europe and
the Orient by one transportation
system, the largest in the world, the
Canadian Pacific.
Sailing in both directions every
three weeks, these ships, which are
the last word in floating architecture,
have attained great popularity with
the world traveller. They have
carried to the markets of the world
the treasures of Oriental merchandise
aa well as vast cargoes of such commodities as tea and rice. In the world
war these Empresses played no small
part in the protection of the- Allied
interests on the Pacific.
In consequence the announcement
from the chief executive of the
company to the effect that the fleet is
a<*?.in to be known as "The White
I Empresses of the Pacilic" meets with
I popular favor.

Grain left Montreal for seventeen j
different countries in the 1926 season. Great Britain imported to the
heaviest extent, followed in order by
Holland, Germany, Belgium, Italy,
France, Norway, Greece, Ireland,
Portugal and South Africa. Great
Britain took .'19,291,763 bushels or
31 per cent, ot the total exports
from the Port, being also the heaviest purchaser of oats. Norway
and Holland were the two largest
buyers of rye.
The grain harvest of 1926 has left
more money in the country than the
greater harvest and somewhat higher prices of 1925, according to N. M.
Paterson, president of the Paterson
Steamship Company, and owner of
a hundred country elevators in the
West, with one other city elevator
now being built at a contract cost
of $800,000 at Fort William. Mr.
Paterson, who was interviewed at the
Windsor Hotel in Montreal recently,
having arrived from Winnipeg, is
travelling ' with his father and
mother, wife, six children and two
nurses, by Canadian Pacific route,
land and steamship, to England with
a view to staying at Bournemouth
for the next three months.
Steamship companies brought approximately 165,000 passengers to
the Dominion in 1926, an increase
of nearly 48,000 over the previous
years. Third class passengers, the
majority of whom were immigrants
or new settlers, accounted for over
123,000. An outstanding feature of
travel has been the development of
tourist third class accommodation.
Approximately 7,100 passengers of
this kind were carried eastbound
across thc Atlantic from Canada
and 8,650 transported westbound
during 1920, making a grand total
of this kind of travel of 16,750
for the year.
