FOR 1926
Victoria, February 2.—'Here are
a few ol the robin features ln thu
budget which Hon. J D. MacLean,
minister of finance, presented to the
British  Columbia legislature  yesterday afternoon:
Hritish Columbia's tax bill will be cut in the next fiscal
year by at least $525,000, making a total tax reduction of
$1,735,000 under the Oliver government in the last four
This eduction, the minister announced, will be accom-
ilplished by these far-reaching changes in the province's
taxation system1:
1. A cut Hn the income tax of $125,000 a year through
an increase in the rebate for a married person from
$1500 to $1800 and for dependents from $200 to $300. Widows and widowers with dependent children also will bc
allowed the samo rebate as a married person.
2. The personal property tax will be wiped out completely and in its place business will pay a turnover tax
on gross income, which will be an alternative to the income tax and will' make taxation generally more equitable.
3. Succession duty taxes will be slashed to the extent
of $400,000 by a reduction in rates and general readjustment of the levy on estates so that there will be no discouragement to wealthy people who want to corme to British Columlbia.
Equally satisfactory was the minister's announcement
that the reductions above set out will be followed by
further similar cuts next year.
By February, 19-28, the province's war-time financing
Will have been completed and the whole of the provincial debt will bave been qut upon a permanent basis and
covered by sinking funds
It is noteworthy that the Oliver government's short-
termftnancing which, incidentally, was bitterly attacked on
many occasions by members of the opposition, has saved
the lprovince to date $9,336,659.
It will be rememibered that the fiscal year 1925-26 produced a surplus of revenue over expenditure of $100,793.
In the 1926-27  fiscal year the surplus will be $312,294.
The production Irom the primary Industries of the
province for the ten years ending 1926^-under the Libc*al
administration—was $1,100,000,000 more than in the previous decade under a Conservative government.
Also, it is to be noted, the per capita production in the
flrst ten-year pediod was $1*871; in the next ten years J487.
In the sarnie time the per capita expenditure was $229 under the former government, and $173 under" the present
administration. Government revenues, iby the way, are
expanding with Hie growth of business throughout the
province, and in the last year Increased by $1,197,099.
The margin of provincial assets over liabilities increased
during the last year by $35,921,099.
The milliliter pointed out that tho gross debt had bcen
reduced by $5,130,000. He also hintedl'or the comfort of
the members and the satisfaction of the people of the province that taxation in British Columbia, in cities and rural
districts, is far lower than in the state of Washington.

It is natural tor a person going on a trip to take alcuig
a camera to record in a permanent way the sights and
scenes of other places Like other government official-'
whose work takes them into unknown or little known part:-;
of Canada, the Dominion land surveyors of the topographical survey, department of the interior, who have been t'eh
pioneers of western Canada, have always brought back photographs of the country through which their surveys took
them; it was early recognized that theso views were a
very valuable addition to the knowledge of the country
and ils resouces. Thus it was that a camera and sullieient films or plates became a regular part of each soj-
veyor's instrument equipment, and there has grown up at
Ottawa a very large collection of photographs. This collection has during recent years been diversified by the
addition of views taken in the older provinces of the Cast
where the topographical survey parties are now also
operating. ,
1 These photographs include a great range of subjects,
such as surveying operations, methods of transportation,
types of country, timber, and vegetation; historic sljSfi,
natives, wild life, and natural features (rivers, water
falls, lakes, mountains, and valleys).
In addition to this class of photographs the topograph!
cal survey has two other extensive series of views taken
expressly for surveying purposes. These are the photo-
topographical and the aerial pictures. It was e arly
recognized that surveys made by ordinary methods in a
mountainousarea like the Rockies, and sufficiently de
tailed to furnish material for an accurate map would be
prohibitive on account of the cost. The late surveyor
geueral, Dr. E. Deville, therefore adapted and developed
the science of map-making from, photographs. These
are taken with a surveying camera from prominent points
of the landscape; and duriug the winter mon^ns the surveyor plots the map from enlargements of his photographs
This method has been successfully used in nia-nping many
of the Dominion forest reserves and national parks. Ii

of the Rocky mountains, was surveyed and mapped, lt is
being used this season in the railway belt of British Columlbia for the production of topographic maps of that
mountainous area.
What Brakes W-U Do and

Yemen and Its Khat
Yemen, an independent country of Arabia, across the
lower end of the narrow Red sea from the Italian colony
of Eritrea, is the latest land to enter Into treaty relation*]
with Italy As a result the 1 kelihood ns seen of the
peaceful penetration of southwestern Arabia by Ita lan influence.
Thill reign, like all other parts of Arabia, was under
at least nominal Turk sh control hefore the great war;
but. since it has constituted an imamate, under the rule
of the Arab Imam Yahya ben Muhan*mad ben Hamld al
Din, who rules. fromi Sabla. Yemen has the distinct on
and the good fortune to be one oi' the few parts of Arabia
that are of agricultural importance. Under a stable gov-
ernment it would have an important commercia f ture.
The Br tish protectorate of Aden is one of its chief outlets for its produce.
Yemen's American fame rests principally upon the familiar name of an almost deserted city, Mocha, through
which coffee no longer comes, where debris clutters the
streets, where only mosques remain intact.
Victoria, February 2.—With
weeks of the session of the legislature passed into history, the Oliver
government waB slil firmly in the
saddle, desuite the strenuous elt'orts of the opposition to
effect Its defeat. There was only oue division, the government wlnuiug out by a vote of 25 to 18. From now on
there is little likelihood of danger to the administration
and the house has got down to serious business.
Determined to afford overy possible opportunity for the
amondmcutof existing statutes, the government has supported the appointment of a select coimntiltee to investigate mothers' pensions and thu operations of tlle workmen's compensation board Witnesses irom all parts of

Brakes exert their greatest effect Just before the wheels
stop and the tires begin to skid.   -
One brake gradually applied will give better results on
the level or on up grades than when either one or both
are suddenly applied.
'Brakes unevenly adjusted will throw a vehicle sidewise
out of its track.
Sudden application of both foot and emergency brakes
hastens the "slewing" of the vehicle from its track and
the period during which the whole dependence is on the
akidding friction ot the tires. This statement does not apply to steep down grades. 1
Brakes applied so aa to lock the wheels prevent using
the engine as a brake.
Two brakes, foot and emergency, when the flrst one

as these photographs are taken for surveying purposes,
the surveyor is more interested in getting certain plotting
information than in artistic effects; hence many of the
photographs may seem ratheri uninteresting as pictures.
The aerial photographs are very recent a-anions to tlie
above collection, but already the number equals all the
others combined. These photographs are taken by the
Royal Canadian air force acting in conjunction with, the
topographical survey. They are uBed for various purposes, but the majority are taken for mapping the luke

by the topographical Burvey was compiled from, these

Banff, Alta., February 2.—With more than 50 cups for
annual competition, and with medals and prizes totalling
more than one thousand.the exhibition of trophies for
the Banff winter carnival, which commences on Saturday,
February 5, makes a showing which is attracting universal attention from visitors and citizens alike. That
the com/petitions will bring forth a degree of sportsmanship
and keenness is assured, judging from the enpuirics and
demands fori reservations bowing into carnival headquarters.
Visitors here during the past few days have expessed
themselves as particularly impressed with the arrangements being made for tenement of those coming to enjoy
the thrills of the world-famous mountain playground.
With weather all that could be desired, and with the keen
mountain air demanding action from everybody, the toboggan slide and the ski trails are daily giving pleasure
to the lovers of winter sports.

New York, February 2.—Five fossilized eggs of the

for the flrst time. L. Volney Stevens, a mining engineer
of Harrison, N.Y, discovered the treasures iu a rich setting of silver and lead, the New York American reports

Mr. Stevens reportB that he located the eggs in a can-
yoncut 6000 feet by the Yaquis river in the state of Son-
ora, Mexico. They were about the size of cantaloupes
and were in the process of hatching. Each contains the
fossilized embryo of an elephant-like animal of the dino-
saurus group with a well-formed trunk. No such partly
hatched specimens were ever found before.

to the most salient property of the plant, that of exalting

researches of Albert Reitter of the University of Strass-

The origin of the name of London has puzzled many
historians. Londinium is first mentioned by Tacitus, a Roman author, in AD. 61. He says it is "a place greatly
celebrated for the number of its merchants and the abundance of its supplies." There are many proofs in English and Swedish museums* of the intimate intercourse
between England and Scandinavia in early times, an intercourse that has probabliy gone on uninterruptedly
for about 6000 years, it may be conjectured that early
Vikings from the south of Sweden ventured across the
water and sailed up the mouth of the Thames and found
a grove, whioh in Swedish is "lund," on the banks of the
river, where later on the Roman Londinium arose. The
invaders called the place "Lund," from the Scandinavian
"offenlund," or sacred grove. The name was later corrupted into "Lond."

There is much more than a social heart warming in popular song, important as that may be in our conglomerate country. The Individual's own stiirulus is most important of all, for he ought to "go forth to life" with spirit

Soldering operations are classified according to the
composition of the alloy used, as either soft or nard soldering. Solders of low melting points, composed mainly
of lead and tin in varying amounts,, are known as soft
solders, while those oi high melting points, composed ol
varying amounts of copper, brass, zinc, silver and gold,
are known as hard solders. The soft solder commonlj
used is made up of half lead and half tin, and melts at
a temperature of 370 degrees Fahrenheit. The more
lead there is in this alloy, the higher is fts melting point,
and an alloy comiposed of one part tin and two parts lead
melts at 441 degrees Fahrenheit.

To a certain extent organized labor has used the radio
to spread its message. Various local unions have supplied labor speakers for radio stations. The Chicago Federation of Labor has established a radio broadcasting station. The Atlantic City convention of the A. F. of L.

feasibility of broadcasting labor's message by radio under the direction of organized labor.
Among the horses wbich ran in the College Handicap
steeplechase at Windsor, England, recently was one
named Escaped Lunatic. "I gave the borse that rather
queer name because I myself was once hunted for, high
and low, as an escaped lunatic," said. Mr. Fleet Goldsmith,
a former Hampshire county councilor, who owns the
horse. "I was an inmate of Park Prewett asylum near
Basingstoke. From there I escaped one night during a
motion picture performance, and despite a keen hunt I kept
clear for the statutory period of fourteen days, after which
ths authorities could not claim me without issuing a new
certificate. When I bought tbe horse the name Escaped
Lunatic took my fancy."

The chances are most of them are not true, for there are

Poems From EasternLands
Sate a lover in a garden
All alone, apostrophizing
Many a flower and shrub about him,
And the lights of Heav'n above.
Nightingaling  thus, a Noodle
Heard him, and, completely puzzled,
"What," quoth he, and you a Lover,
Raving, not about your Mistress,
But about the sfars and roses—
What have these to do with Love?"
Answer'd he: "Oh thou tliat almost
Wide of Love, and Lovers' language
Wholly misinterpreting;
Self, as any Lover knows;
Hyacinth I said, and meant her
Hair—her cheek was in the rose—
And I myself the wretched weed
That in her cypress shadow grows."

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

epic an' span in white paint. Accord-
. ing to the official order, the white
paint will be topped off by a suitable
shade of Pacific blue around the
sheer line streak of the vessels. This I
waa used when tba three-funnel fleet I
was formerly painted white, and the
effect acclaimed the ships among the
most attractive in world commerce.
On Feb. 18 the blue-ribbon ship
of the Pacific, the 21,600 ton EmpreSs
of Canada, will arrive in Vancouver
clad in white. Holding the Pacific
speed record of fifteen days, tWenty-
one hours from Hongkong t>o Vancouver and from Yokohama to the
Canadian port in eight days, ten
hours and fifty-three minutes, the
blue line 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.
Arriving in Vancouver on March 6,
the Empress of Russia, the 16,900
ton Bister-ship to the Empress of
Asia, will be the third to arrive after
annual overhaul in Hongkong and
will complete the (leet to be known
as "The White Empresses of the
As Royal Mail ships these Canadian Pacific Empresses have been
supreme in the trade between
America and Asia, being the largest
and fastc-t on the Pacific route. Their
service is augmented by being the
important link between Europe and
thc Orient by one transportation
system, the largest in the world, the
Canadian Pacific.
Sailing in both directions every
three weeks, tbese 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
as 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
again to be known as "The White
Empresses of the Pacilic" meets with
popular favor.

WE. Kidder of Kalamazoo, Mi-
a chigan arrived in Montreal
over Canadian Pacific Railway lines,
recently with the best "fish i.tory
of the year. It v/as a pretty good
story, and we had to believe him,
especially when he showed us a forty-
pound salmon packed a*>vay in ice in
the observation car.
Now, Mr. Kidder is a pretty good
fisherman, but he pays that the e>:-
perien-t-e he had while fishing in Cain*
River, Nov- Brunswick is a' Bolutely
unique, and that as far &. he knows
he was successful in hooking what i3
probably a record Ealmr.n with a
trout rod and fly. *
"This fish i3 unquestionably the
largest-hook Mi ,  1  )-.:,. aet   ."
aaid   Mr.   Kidder, "and the same
opinion was expressed by game
wardens who viewed the fish in the
live box. But the really great point
was the terrific fight that this fish
put up. This was so spectacular and
so fast and furious, accompanied by
rush after rush of 150 to 200 feet, that
we had no ti nie to take 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 one
foot in the Low of the canoe constantly, when I was not in the canoe and
chasing the fish baild 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 hody it would probably show, t wo or three Incni 1 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
from the water he would have bcen
at least two inches more.
"However, no matter how you
look a* 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 'sulker' 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. The
rod weighed only four and seven-
eighths ounces, and the ordinary
trout leader, with a three pound
breaking strength was not much
heavier than is commonly used for a

Victoria, February 4.—The British
Columbia liquor board will be responsible directly to the legislature instead of the government, if the house
adopts legislation Introduced yesterday by Attorney General Manson intended to completely remodel the pro
vincial lipuor system.
The new law would give the board
power to appoint all members of its
staff and in cities of over 25,000 population, the liquor board might keep
its stores open after 8 o'clock ati
night. The new legislation ahjo pro
vides that any person under 21 years
of age who makes application for a
liquor permit or enters a ibeer parlor
would be guilty of an offence, and no
person whose permit has been under
suspicion will be permitted to enter
an-"* beer parlor. The board would i
also have power to make whatever
regulations It deemed necessary with
out referring to the government.

The British market for Canadian
apples during the past week has
shown good demand for barrelled
stock, with firm prices, while there
have been liberal supplies with slow
demand and no change iu prices for
iboxed goods, accortlng to a cable re
ceived this date from J Forsyth
Smith, Canadian fruit trade commissioner. There were practically no
apples offered at Manchester and
Glasgow last week. Reduced supplies
have stimulated an upward movement in barrels on most markets aud
the outlook is for increased value.
The total exports to all countries
from Canada and the United States
to January 9 were 3,295,018 barrels
and 5,323,760boxeu, as compared with
2,096,672 barrels and 3,552,681 boxes
on the corresponding dute last year.
Figuring that 90 per cent of the exports have reached the United Kingdom markets they have taken 57 per
cent more barrels and 50 per cent
more boyes this season to date than
last season during the same period.
