Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
who has been appointed a Royal
Commissioner to continue the investigations    Into    tha    Custom!
Here are some of the high points
scored by Hod. C. A. Dunning in
his great speech at Vancouver on
Monday night:
Canada for al tbe Canadians, not
for some of them.
British Columbia bas often been
represented as tbe back door of Can-
ade, but British Columbia's destiny
is to be the front door of western
Canada if you wiil cooperate, politically as well as economically, witb
your brethren of the prairies.
Our policy we bave placed on tbe
statute books- you know wbere we
are going because we have showed
I owe Canada everything I have
and hope to be. I would be a poor
creature if I would not stand on tbe
platform and fight for "Canada, for
all the Canadians, not for some
Canadians." I am in this fight to a
No parliament in Canada's history

common people. We tried to carry

before, are employing more people,
making bigger profits and tbeir
shares are higher on tb' market than

You can't talk in tbis country
about embarking on free trade, Tbat
is not preached by any party. But
we can sty tbat when the tariff
bears heavily on all the Canadians
for tbe benefit of a few it is lime to
make a change.
Tbis time the Tory issue in to be

« But tbe first purpose of tbe ballot is
to oonstruct policies on wbiob par

Mr. Bofvin set out to clean up the
mess in a business-like way. The
Conservatives dragged the issue into
partisan politics and tbat has not
helped to clean it up.
This campaign is going to be fall
of that kind of filth, but I can tell
you tbat neither before the comm't-
tee nor io the house was a c arge or
insinuation made tbat any minister
or member of the Liberal party ever

Tbe Conservatives were willing to
take tbe investigation as complete,

The responsibility fnr wbat oc-
cuired in lho*e closing days is
squarely on the shoulder of Arthur
Meighen, for wben be took office be
tacitly pledged his ability to carry
on. It was proven io 65 hours that
he was wrong in that advice to his
excellency and therefore that Mackenzie King was rigbt.
While it was only a sham or a
shadow fToveromeot, thn serious fact
was tbat it bad control of our affairs
and of the public purse.
Loyalty is based on love, love of
tbe rights and freedom of British
citizens, tbe freedom to be loyal.
Tint's the genius of tbe British race,
recognizing that loyalty can't be
compelled, only inspired by creating
something worthy of our loyalty.
Old age pensions were killed by

voted for it. But we'll reintroduce
it and stay witb it till it's  tbrougb.
The significant thing about the

Robert Forke, leader of the Farmer
party, discussing tbe constitutional
question, declared:
"I know tbat Mr Meighen never
would have been premier if all tbe
circumstances had been known. Tbe
governor general constituted himself
a judge between Mr. King and Mr-
Meighen in granting dissolution to
the latter after declining it to the
Mr. Forke dealt witb the customs
probe, and also witb the question ot
tariffs "Mr. Meighen will come out
west, but will Dot say much about
tbe tariff, or about raising tbe
tariff," be predicted.
Mr. Forke emphasized bia stand
on tbe tariff question—that it was
impossible for a country to be prosperous by building up tariff walla.
"I know I have done my duty and
I am not here to apologize for my
session," declared Mr. Forke.
Mr. Forke, who represented Bran*
don constituency in the last house,
was again nominated, and in politi
cal circles  it was declared that the
former leader will receive the endorsation of tbe local Liberals at a
meeting this Thursday afternoon.
Mr. Forke emphasized the necessity for cooperation between the
Liberals and Progressives.
"Without the aid and support of
tbe Liberals," he said, "we can not
win tbis constituency of Brandon,"
"I do not care what name I go to
Ottawa under, my vote and my actions will be just tbe eame."
"The Progressive members were
approaohed by both Conservatives
and Liberals almost continuously
during the last session,'' he declared.
Mr. Forke dealt at length with
the developments at 0 tawa during
the last session, and declared offers
of "divers kinds," including the
Conservative declaration that if the
Progressives would give that parly
tbeir support the government would
run its full course.
The offer, said Mr. Forke, was
given serious consideration. At one
time the Progressives took a straw
vote on whether they would -support
tbe Conservatives or the Liberals,
and the vote was 12 to 10 in favor of
the former. Ha was at a loss as to
wby the vote went tbat way, unless
"it was the knowledge tbat it wae
not a binding vote." Later another
vote was taken, and all except five
members supported the Liberal
egislative program.

Treasure Island, the outstanding amuaement feature of
the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley-— with ita
bold but nice pirates,Long John Silver aad Captain Hook,
and its many other famous characters from storyland,
Peter Pan, Wendy, Alice, the Duchess, the Mad Hatter,
Cinderella, Mother Goose and Robinson Crusoe, has
proved to be the greatest entertainment attraction at the
Sesquijpentennial International .Exposition at Philadelphia.
It is a much bigger and more wonderful "Treasure
Island" than the one which delighted thousands at
Wembley last year. It lias six acres of land, surrounded
by a natural lagoon. Tiie entire lay-out of the Island in
Philadelphia was designed and built by Maxwell Ayrton,
architect of the Weinbley exhibition overseas. Drake's
ehir the "Golden Hind", Noah's Ark and its animals,
two by two, and pirate and smugglon*' caves will be a few
of tho features seen.
Eut 6JUlfce tlie racst fascin'.ting experieme of the
visitor "to Trcacure Island is ths trip -.cross Can-jda on
the miniature Canadian  Pacific  Railway's  "Imperial
Limited" train which is pulled through a replica of the
Canadian Pacific Rockies by a small puffing engine only
four feet long,' but strong enough to pull 30 people. The
engine driver is J. Terrence Holder, the twenty-one year-
old son of one of England's wealthiest families who prefers
this job to an Oxford career.
One gets on the train at the Palais Station, Quebec,
just below the magnificent Chateau Frontenac, and
passes through Queboc and Ontario provinces and enters
the prairies in less than no time. When Banff is reached
the train stops to allow passengers to see the Banff
Springs Hotel and the beautiful Bow Valley. Westward
it speeds through the Canadian Pacific Rockies, some 600
feet long, the tallest towering 74 feet high and built of
sheet iron and plaster, and dashes into Connaught
tunnel; thence on to the Coast, where one sees Vancouver
Harbour, the Straits of Georgia and picturesque Victoria.
More than half a million people rode on the little
Canadian Pacilic Rnilway at Wembley last year, and
among its distinguished passengers were the King and
Queen and the Duke and Duchess of York.
wheat crop report
Wheat estimates in tbe prairie
provinces are bfeing revised down-,
ward, the lead set by tbe federal
government in its report of a week
or two ago having b?en followed by
most crop prognosticators, according
to dispatches from tbe midwest.
The federal government eetimate
of yield was placed at 848,626,000
bushels. Last year the production
ot wheat was 416,839,000 bushels.
The estimate last year, however,
was considerably below tbe quantity
Damage by excessive heat and
bere and tbere by frost wbile tbe
wheat was in flower is held responsible for tbe lessened estimates.
Prices have been bullish since publication of the government state,
Northern Alberta, particularly in
the Peace river country, will harvest
one of the best crops io the history
of the district and will lead most of

The growing of tbe new Garnet
wheat, whi*b ripens two weeks before Marquis, will contribute to tbe
Peace river country's   earlier crop.

Our forests will continue to be burned at
the rate of three milii n acres a year nntil the
people, the owners of the forests, evince something of the same interest in them as they do in
smuggling, in the tariff ancTrn who is to bo the
next prime minister. Tne Canadian Forestry
association.thejCanadian Society of Forest Engineers, the Dominion and provincial forest
services are appealing to our readers for help
in bringing salvation to our forests, salvation
from oft recurring,but we hope uot eternal,fire.
The interests of* this country and the development of morality are well served by the avoidance of fire in this life. Protection, we gather
from reading our exchaoces, is an important
issue iu politices, and we submit that protection from forest fires should be a paramount
issue in politics. Why spend so much time
and energy in discussing the tariffs when the
second lnrgest foundation of our industries is
burning beneath us? Does it matter mucb
who is elected to office so long as we continue
to lay waste our forest wealth at the rate of
three million acres a year? No one man under such conditions can prevent the paralysis
of industry and the depopulation of lumbering
commun ties that inevitably follow in the
wake of forest devastation. There will be no
adequate forest fire protection in this country
until our poli ical leaders are actually seized
with its importance in terms of industrial life
and act accordingly. The manifestation of
this seizure will express itself in better organization of our forest protection forces and
greater appropriations of money to carry on
their work.

HEADED by Yuko Maki, under
secretary of the Japanese
Alpine Club, six noted Japanese Alpinists have left Jasper
Park Lodge, at Jasper, Alberta,
for a twenty-flve days' trip into
the Columbia Icefield, one of the
least-known portions of the Canadian Rockies. Their trip will
take thorn to the headwaters of the
At'* abases, and North Saskatchewan Rivers, and an endeavor will
be made to climb Mount Alberta, a
virgin peak which has so. far defied all efforts to conquer its
higher slopes. Members of the
party state that if the territory
lives up to their expectations it
will attract hundreds of Japanese
Alpinists annually. The expedition is elaborately equipped scientifically and the equipment includes still  and"   motion  picture
cameras and a complete dark room
with which pictures will be developed in the field. Three Swiss
guides, Hcinruch Fuhrer, Hans
Kohler, and Jean Webber, from
