Few men are able to keep withim hailing distance of their good intentions
"I will stand by the ranchers of
this valley as long as they carry on,
but if they lay down onthe job I will
quit them," declared D. McPherson,
M.L.A. gor Grand 'Forks-Greenwood,
at a largely attended public meet in.
in the EimpresB theater Wednesday
The meeting had been called by
Mr, McPherson in order to give him
an opportunity ito give an account of
his stewardship at the last session to
the electors prior to the opening of
the forthcoming session of the legislature. This he did so well that at
the cose he was tendered three
cheers and a tiger.
G. C. Egg occupied the chair on tho
plat orin, and introduced the speaker.
Tho seats in the house were occupied by Liberals and Conservatives
alike, the feathering being strictly
IMr. McPherson began Ms address
bysaying that it was only proper that
members of the legislature should
give an account oi' their stewardship
to the electorate. Such meetings
should be held oftener, he thought

the spirit of the meeting had been

Too much politics was played between elections in this country, In
the opinion o the speaker. He did
not know when there would be an
other provincial election, and he did
not care if tt never came.
Mr. McPherson reviewed in detail
the legislation enacted at the last session. He condemned the absentees'
voters act as originally adopted, but
with the amtendmlents added to it last
winter it should prove satisfactory
bo all parties. The highways act had
been amended so that it was now
more workable ahd the admlnstra-
tion of the department more efficient. The motor vehicle act should
be amended so as to make parties
who hired cars responsible for damages in the event they met with accidents. >He was in favor of a minimum wage scale lor men.
The P.G.E. problem was a difficult one to solve, In the opinion of
the speaker. The road startedfrom
nowhere and ended at nowhere, and
a series of heavy grades stood
against Us successful operation. It
might become use ul for colonization

The controversy over the Sumas
drainage scheme had been satisfactorily disposed of.
The amendments to the workmen's compensation act bad improved that measure.
He had opposed ithe proposition of
the province guaranteeing the bonds
for the establishment of an Iron industry.
The alarming increase of insanity
all over the continent was a problem
>that governments would soon have to
deal with. If ti continued to increase
at the present rate, the solution of it
would be a heavy drain on the public funds. „
Mr. McPherson compared the meth
ods of employing men onpublic works
under the .present administration
and under the former government,

province was ruined. The 01iv~i
government had to increase taxation
in order to balance the budget. Ab
an instance of the wisdom of this
course, he cited the fact that the
Bankers' association had recentlj
commended British Columbia's inan-
oial position as being the soundest in
Canada. The taxpayers should also
rereiemlber that they were now getting
more ror their money than they formerly did. Expenditures for public

The speaker paid tribute to the
personnel of the government It had
now been in office ten years and no
scandal had been heard against a
single member of it .
-Mr. McPherson aaid he favored
sohool taxation reform. Some
of the burden now borne by property
owners forthis purpose should be
shifted to salary earners and people
o means. At present it was a misfortune to own property.
Although, he said, the measures
taken against the Doukhobors to
i. am pell them to send their children
to school may have been harsh, subsequent events have juatii'ded tiie
course adopted. 'Six hundred Doukhobor children are now attending
school, and they are building more

The speaker thought that the Installation of the irrigation system
was ill-advised, as individual pumping plants would have filled all requirements for the present, and they
would have been more economical
and would not have obligated the
land o the people Who did not want
water. H e was of the opinion, however, that if the ranchers of this valley stayed on thoir jobs the govern-!
intent would not he very harsh with
them. It was while speaking on this
subject that Mr. McPherson gave utterance to the sentence quoted above.
The meeting closed with three
cheers and a tiger .for the speaker
and the singling of the national anthem.
Local Man Invents
Solar Clock Dial
William Frakes, of this city, has se.
cured Canadian and United States
letters pate* :t for a universal solar
timekeeper. The specifications of
the invention make the following
olaims for thie new clock dial:
The .invention relates to an improved 24-hour dial for the clock or
.timepiece, whereas the correct local
mean time may be kept on the meridian it ls situated upon, and is independent of time zones.
The dial as demonstrated is constructed in two parts, its central being fixed—named in draylngs A and
B. The right-hand semicircle enumerates in Roman numerals the hours
from noon to midnight ahd marked
P.M. Local Time. On the le t-hand
semicircle the hours from midnight to
noon are recorded, and marked A.M.
Local Time. Minutes of time are
enumerated on the edge ol'this fixed
dial as on an ordinary dial.
This fixed dial carries two hands.
The hour hand stretches clear across
the diameter of this dial, extending
to a point on the concentric dial to a
circle marking degrees longitude and
time. On this hand and near its posi
tive point • are marked the words
"Noon At"; on ito opposite or negative point are the words "Midnight
Tt." The positive point of this hand
continually covers the memuian with
which the ^sun ls in transit on ithe
outer dial and at the same time recording tble hours of local time.
The minute hand crosses the semi-
dlamjeter oi' the inner dial to its edge
where the minutes are recorded, as
on the ordinary clock dial.
The concentric or outer dial is
free and may be adjusted at will to
any given longitude. It bears four
circles, marked in drawlinv C, D, E
and P.
Circle enumerates the hours of
Greenwich mean time, both A.M. and
P.M. in Arabic numlerals.
Circles D and E combine longitude
and time, and is subdivided Into three
parts o five degrees eacn, equal to
twenty minutes of time.
Circle E subdivides each five degrees into one degree sections, equalling four minutes 01 time.
Time read from these circles would
be universal the worldover, as the
positive point of the uiour hand continually covers the meridian with
which* the sun is in transit (thus mai:
ing the sun the true standard timekeeper).
On circlo F tho names of well
known cities and pkces of the world
are registered oppc.-ite their respective longitudes, ln whatever longitude the clock is set up ln, the longitude of .that place mlust be brought
directly above the n*on hour o the
inner fi*:od dial, und'r the hair line
G, iplaced there for the purposeol' mak
ing a correct adjustnie.vt.
On this outer dial tv.'j small knobs
are fixed ior tlie purp<j*e of turning
it to that adjustment, anil of course
the operator will be cariul to adjust
to his longitude east ox- v. est accordingly.
This being done, clamf 'the dial
with the two small set screws, provided on the clock casing for that
The adjustment being made, an
observer could then read M* own local time, the Greenwich mean time,
the point on tlio earth's sur ace
where It was noon, and iri'ilnight,
and from these points read the local
time a*, any place he desire-.
Acknowledging the sun to be the
true standard timekeeper w!tii*h no
one will deny, this new dial Lace'lies
its imlitaltor, the positive -joint of the
hour hand running side by side w, Ji
its centre, Riving -the earth's inhabitants a square deal; supplying them
with, correct imoan time at aiiy place,
and giving all the same amount of
daylight—both   a.m.   and p.m. which
in many instances is a real   daylight
Time zones as used in the present
system are at a great disadvantage
with new method, which the following data will demonstrate:
About the year 1883 the Association American Railways devised for
the operation of their systems five
time zones embracing the whole
Anjlerioan continent, beginning at the
60th meridian of w.est longitude, and
ending at 135th o the same denamin
ation. The difference 'between these
meridian s is 75 degrees. Theso
were divided into five equal partB
of time, and called time zones.
15 degrees each, representing one
and were named respectively, Atlantic, Eastern, Central, Mountin, and
Pacific time zones and were called
Standard Time.
It is obvious that between these
divisional points the so-called Standard Time as set for a given zone
would be at variance with the true
time a s recorded by the sun (the
only true .standard timekeeper).
In eastern Canada railways experienced much difficulty in zlgza*:-
ing from one time zone to another
and eventually adopted Easter standard tin*|* to operate from the eastern point of Gaspe Peninsula in the
toprovince of Quebec, to Fort William
ln the province of Ontario. The distance between these two points is
about 24 degrees of longitude. It is
evident that between thesetwo points
no one would have the correct time,
except those situated on the 75th
As an example, at Gaspe on the
longest day of the year, in eastern
standard time, the sun would rise at
3 hours 20 minutes. On the same
eastern standard time at Fort Wil-,
Ham the sun would not rise until 4
hours 56 minutes.
Presenting it in another form, the
sun would be high in the heavens at
Gaspe while it was still dark at Fort
William. It rollows that on p.m.time
•the oondltions would he reversed.
Gaspe would be in darkness one hour
and 36 hinutes be ore Fort William.
All t.ini,e zones would be similarly,
affected, but, of course, to a lesser
Using the new clock dial the error
would be obviated, and one place
would not got a long a.m. time and a
short p.m. time, while another got a
short a.m. time and a long p.m,time,
as the-device divides the sun's diurnal arc into two equal segments.
Therefore aU places would have an
equal amount of daylight, both a.m.
and p.m., throughout the year.
The Invention is ln a direct line
with present-day tendencies, as our
interest in world agalr's expand,
through itelegraphy.wlreless transmis
sion , aviation, radio, etc. It is especially adaptable In connection with
radio broadcasting and Its programs.
The latter are published under various time zones, and cause receivers
no little confusion as to the time
tliey may pick up a given station.
With the use of the new clock dial i
broadcasting stations andt heir programs Would simply use meridian or
solar time. Solar time is the meri-j
dian time of the sun In transit. That
is to say, by naming the meridian
with which the sun is or will be in'

naming It east of west, a receiver!
could at once read off from the given ■
meridian his own corresponing local
time, without regard to what part of j
the world he might Ibe. [
Railway and other time tables
would tabulate the local timefor each!
named station throughout their sys-l
terns, and eventually the zones would I
fade into the limbus of a bygone age,

Pemier Oliver narrowly escaped
serious injury on the Malahat highway early in the morning, of Friday
last, when the ■ car in which he yas
riding was forced from the road by a
reckless motorist, and almost smashed into a cliff.
Only the presence o mind of the
premier's chauffeur saved him when
a fast-moving car suddenly rounded
a curve and came rushing on towards
the premier's car, refusing to move
from the middle of the road. To
avoid a collision the premier's chauffeur turned his car off the road anil
over a mound of rock, and in doing so
just mjissed crashing at high speed
into a bluff. He managed, however,
to get back to the road again without
mishap, but by this time the unknown
speeder had swept on around a corner and disappeared before the premier could get his number.

Winter Time is Carnival Time in Banff
Banff in winter time ia fairyland. Shafts of the sun
strike the white snow-covered mountains and valleys
of the Canadian Rockies, changing them into a landscape
of flashing irridescence.   Colon — blue, red, green and

i Fancy skaters swing gracefully into Intricate figures

marvellous leaps through the air from the ski jump on the
top of a nearby mountain. Ski-jorers dash down the

will be crowned and seated on her throne as the culminating triumph of the carnival.
Trains pull into the station at Banff. Passe.igers on
their way west stop off to disport themselves in the
snowy, gay little town. Passengers on their way east

"The development that Is now proceeding in British Columbia ls one of
the leading topics of conversation
among eastern manufacturers and
"British Columbia has gone ahead
of all other parts o the Dominion in
its advance this year."
The two quotations above are extracts from a statement made the
other day by W. II. Campbell, vice-
president and general manager of
the Ford Motor Company of Canada
Limited,who was a visitor ln British
Columbia recently.
When the east pays such a compliment to the west it can be regarded far from an empty one. It Indicates at least that a close watcb has
been kept on British Columbia's affairs and that the result of the continental scrutiny ls reflected in Mr.
Campbell's  observations.
It will be recalled that the last
budget speech of Hon. J. D. McLean
was made the subject ot battering
comment in the eastern press and in
financial -world generally. Among
much other Illuminating evidence of
progress tbe minister of finance was
able to prove the soundness of the
judgment of the government in earlier sales o its securities. One particular cose ln point was an issue of
$1,000,000 6 per cent three-year bondB
of 1920.
At the time this bond was floated,
and during the provincial elections
in 1920 the government was roundly
criticized by opposition speakers and
writers for having sold short-term
bonds with the option of New York
payment instead of selling long-term
bonds witb Canadian payment only.
It was told that the exchange situation could not possibly change in
three years and that there was a certainty that tlie loan would ultimately
cost the province anywhere from 9Vi
per cent to 19'^ per oent.
Nothing of the sort happened. The
The New York* market was closely
watched when the bonds matured
last fall. Funds for their redemption
were purchased at varying rales of
exchange averaging over all one and
nine-sixteenths per cent. In other
words , the actual cost of this 6 per
cent loan was 5.47*1 per cent, not only
k>3s than the rate of interest it carried, but very far short o What the
government's critics said it was going to cost
Having paid off this three-year
loan, moreover, lt was possible to refund it at 5.30 per cent. Continuing
it for twenty years on tliat basis, the
result will be a sawing of $475,000 un
this one transaction, a saving which
would not have been effected if tho
government had followed the advice
of its pessimistic critics.
These and other similar instances
of Hound business methods explain
why "the development that Is now
prccoodlng in llritish Solmnbia is
one of the lending topics of conversation among eastern manufacturers
nnd dintrtliutorR." Sound Qnanelng,
alter all, is tho BOBt form o provincial advertisement.

Several pnblic statements have   been   math-
recently which ought to convince most pe -pie
that British Columbia is enjoyii g a  measure
of prosperity which compares more than ordinarily  favorably  with the other provinces  of
the Dominion.    When he was in Vancouver a
few  days ago, Grant Hall, vice president  of
the Canadian Pacific liailway  company, declared that practically every eastern   business
man  who  returns  from the  west expresses
amazement at the rapid growth of Vancouver
, and the evidences of prosperity  found  there
It'is not necessary to look beyond   the building statistics  of Vancouver to  discover the
reason for Grant  Hail's remark.    The Van-
couvery Daily ProAince, discussing this phase
of tho city's development editorially, points
out that the figures for November "are part of
the Christmas present which 192(3  is getting
ready to give to Greater Vancouver."   Our
contemporary   then  goes  on   to  say that "it
OK-ans  much  to   be  able tu point in the city
proper to $14,000,000 worth of new construction in the first eleven   nionih.s  of the year."
"But thu soli.i s'Uisl'aciioti," trie Province con--
tinues, "'afforded by ihese figures comes  from
something better than their com pan live   bigness, for it is good that Greater Vancouver
has added lo is stature iu 1920 by the   worth
of $22,000,000 in building construction." Then
it is to tie noted—also according lo the  D-iily
Province—that bank clearings for the preset.!
year in  Vancouver  will  coiisiitute  a record.
Vancouver is taken as an example  for com.
parison, of course, because it is the largest city
iu the province at the moment.    These figures
are  worth  noting, not   only because what is
taking place in the way of general progress in
Vaucouveu likewise is  inking place iu  other
parts, but also because the uew leader of the
Conservative party in British Columbia is opposed, for instance, to such  business builders
as the  Australian    trade  treaty,   which  the
press of Vancouver and its board of trade  already have heralded as one of .the finest   possible arrangements for British (Jolumbia.
George IV was the wisest, if the most stubborn, of constitutional monarchs, according to
his Intest biographer, Shane Leslie, Ihe  Irish
novelist.    A dissolute and  drunken  fop, he
says, would not have summoned Brighton oui
ofthe sands, rebuilt Windsor catt'e and  capitalized London among the capitals. As regent
and king he presided ever a national greatness
never before or afterward exceeded.    He  re
stored palaces, endowed Winchesier, enlarged
the streets of London and  spanned  the river
not   unmemorably.    Komney,  Raeburn   and
Lawrence   flourished   under   his   pa'ronage.

picture drawn by  pievious  biographer-, who
would Imve the world believe that George IV

Leonard Richmond, R.B.A..R.O.I.,
the well known British artist is
among the latest to succumb to the
hire of singing tbe praises of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies. In Apollo,
• magazine of the arts, Mr. Richmond writes Of the Rocky Mountains
aa one of the most magnificent sights
of the world.
Towards the end of March 1926,
the artist made his first journey into
the heart of Canada. He writes, "As
the train advanced from Calgary, the
"Foothills" of the Rockies gradually
•merged in view, suggesting the
appearance of a body-guard, or
sentinels, guarding the sterner mountains beyond.
"It is not expedient or desirable for
me to describe In detail the emotional
ascending scale that my feelings
experienced as the train approached
the actual Rockies themselves. It is
enough to state that my highest
Imaginative thoughts had never visualized so much impressive force and
dignity as those austere mountains
conveyed that late afternoon in
"The general color on that particular afternoon was monotone in
•Sect. I have not seen any Japanese
wood-cut print that equalled the
superb draughtsmanship of the finely
designed groups of pine trees which
-rare almost black in tint, contrasting
•harply against the virgin snow.
"Tli mountains of Canada aoirgest
many forms of expression for artists.
In that respect the/ are probably
unique. The intellectually endowed
modern painter has scope enougn to
create works of art, based on the
innumerable suggestions of dynamic
force, grim tragedies of form caused
by ancient volcanic eruptions, and
occult feelings, too, cau be awakened
by close contact and communion
with the soul of the mountains.
"It is impossible for any artist to
sketch more than a .fraction of such
a vast area of varied subjects. Once
the artist is situated right in the
mountains there is no occasion to seek
for subjects or to walk any distance
for desirable views. There is something interesting to paint from any
"Some of the most interesting
pictures that I.hsve seen recently of
the Ruckjes are those where the
artist has improvised in colour and
form-ton the original theme in nature.
By this means Nature can be made to
look more natural in a picture and
the artlrt's thoughts can be crystallized   into   positive   expression."
Mr. Richmond, who painted a
number of beautiful views, states that
although Lakes Louise, O'Hara,
Moraine, and Emerald are famous i:.
tjie lake world of Canada, he was
intrigued by the smaller sisters, Lake
Mirror and Lake Agnes, known as
the "Lakes in. the Clouds," above

A Record Fish and Story
1 The peaceful Cains River where the Ugh ring '■ hook bllle" lurk.

WE. Kidder of Kalamazoo, Mi-
• chlgan arrived in Montreal
over Canadian Pacific Railway lines,
recently with the best "fish" story
of the year. It was a pr»tty good
story, and we had to believe him,
especially when he showed us a forty-
pound salmon packed away in ice in
the observation car.
Now, Mr. Kidder is a "pretty good
fisherman, but he says that the experience he had while fishing in Cains
River, New Brunswick is absolutely
unique, and that as far as lie knows
he was successful in hooking what is
probably" e record su.lm.--n with a
trout rod and (ly. *
"This iisii is unquestionably the
largest -hook bi", I have ever seen,"
said   Mr.   Kidder, "and the same
opinion was expressed by game
wardens who viewed the fish in the
Hve box. But the really great point
was the terrific fight that this fish
put up. This waa so spectacular and
.so fast and furious, accompanied by
rush after rush of 150 to 200 feet, that
we had no tii.io totake a picture of it.
" My canoe man and myself were
busy every second of the time from
twenty minutes past four until after
dark. In fact up to the last few
minutes of the fight I stood with ono
foot in the bow of the canoe constantly, when I was not in the canoe and
chasing the fish back and forth across
the stream. •
"This fish was forty-five and three-
fourths inches long measured in a
Straight line. If measured around the
contour of the body it would probably show two or three inches longer
than this. These measurements) were
taken after he had been fighting the
wires of the live box for five or six
days, in which he undoubtedly lost a
great deal of weight. Perhaps if he
had been measured when first taken
irom the water he would have been
at least two inches more. *>
"However, no matter how yon
look at it, he was big enough to suit
me, and the fact that it was a 'hook
bill and 'leaping fish' instead of a
female or 'sulkcr* gave me that
much more satisfaction. Then, too,
it was taken with a No. 12 fly, which
is very much smaller than is commonly used for six inch trout. Th«
rod weighed only four and seven-
eighths ounces, and the ordinary
trout leader, with a three pound
breaking strength was not milch
heavier than is commonly uaed for •
small trout fly.",

"We bear a lot about the awful
death rate of the uutoir.cblle, but
there ls another Bide to the story"
Those were Capt. E. V. Hickenbat-k-
er's words and his "other side o the
story" lis very interesting to read
Let him tell it.
"The other side may be called the
'life rate.'
"Who can compute the life rate of
the automobile—-the millions of lives
that are saved or conserved every
year—and the tremendous lengthening of life by broadening of experience which the automobile affords.
"So far as the death rate is concerned It is not half so formidable
anyanyway when you look below the
"Had there been any methodof cow
iputlng the death rate due to kicking
and runaway horses (in the decade
that immediately preceded theadvent
of the motor car, people would be
amazed to And that lt is ln this automobile era. .
"The millions of people who get
killed falling down stairs, and slipping off roo s of two-story 'buildings
are not news and therefore are heard
of only in the form of inconspicuous
paragraphs in dally newspapers,
"I n the days of the horse there
were few daily papers and the circulation of those that did exist was
limited to the cities 'and immediate
suburbs. Consequently, few or none
of the deaths of farm hands or thu
children that were killed by horses
every day were recorded,
"The great growth of daily news,
papers, magazines and other inform-
ativ e matter happened to be coincident to the advent of the mtotor car.
"Recently a tractor manufacturer
began to look up these statistics. He
ound that while something like 140
people had been killed by tractors ln
a year, more than 1700 had been
kicked to death by horses in the same
length of tim.e
"At that, the tractor records were
all available, while only a small percentage of the 'death rate of 'the
horse' could be secured.
"Take the automobile at Its worst,
however, and it Is probably the best
life-saver ever invented.
"Think of the miillions of babies
and frail children whose lives are prolonged and the number of lives actually saved [by a ride in the car on hot
evenings when otherwise they would
almost suffocate in the pent-up flats
or the shut-in dty streets."
There would appear to be some
lessons in beekeeping that are very
difficult to learn and the failure to
learn them| Is costing the beekeeping -
industry of Canada large sums of
money every year. One of the most
important and most costly lessons ls
the one on "wintering." During the
past winter a large number of colonies in eastern Canada through lack
o proper preparation for the winter,
have died. In addition, many were
.seriously weakened from .the aame
cause. Occasionally there comes
Winter that is very severe on bee life
and, unlt-ssthe bees are thoroughly
prepared for such a winter, the loss
will be heavy. As there is no. means
of foretelling just what the winter is
going to be like, the only alternative,
lf we wish to play safe, ls to prepare
the bees each fall so they may survive the hardest winter. We have
also learned that sugar syrup Is the
safest food or bees during the winter months. Hundreds of colonies
that went Into winter quarters last
year With anywhere from forty to
sixty-pounds of late-gathered honey
strved to death before spring because this honey granulated solid in
the combs. Another lesson of the
past season is that dn a lean year,
such as was experienced i n eastern
Canada ln 1926, only strong colonies
of are able to gther a surplus* of
honey. This means that, in addition
to wintering well, the colonies must
ibe headed with good, proli ic queens
from the time brood-rearing starts
In the spring until at least the first
week of the matin honey flow and that
no check must appear In brood production during that time. This, of
course, holds true in any season, but
more so in a poor one.—C. B. Gooder-
ham, Dominion Apiarist.
