Another Disbursement of
Liquor Profits to Municipalities to Be Made
Before End of Present
Speeial Cknrespoiulence of The Sun.
Victoria, April 25.—Good news
ie on tap for the municipalities of
British Columbia, and even pro*
hibitionists are apt to forget tbeir
firmness when lion. John Hart,
minister of finance, distributes well
over a million dollars of liqnor
profits before tbe end of this month.
While il is generally nccepted tbat
Attoa-ney-Geneial Manson will nol
do anything to push the salts of
liquor in British Columbia, it is also
conceded that tbe present method
of handling liquor under government control is working out more sat
isfactorily tban is tbe ease in other
provinces aod states. Tbere is only
a smali percentage of drunkenness
and general dinkingto excess in this
province compared witb other days,
and lawbreaking on account of
liquor bas decreased in a startling
manner. This is due largely to tbe
stringent enforcement of tbe government liquor act.
For the six months ending Seps
tember 30 last the liquor profits were
•1,075,000. Of this amount $53,000
went into a reserve fund, wbile the
municipalities received $511,000
and tbe consolidated revenue fund
alike amount. As provided for in
an amendment'to tbe act at tbe last
session of tbe legislature, the government will pay 15 per cent of all
profits lo provincial hospitals, no
hospital receiving a grant of more
tban 26 cents per day for each patient. Tbe municipalities will get 35
per cent, two sevenths of wbich will
be used for schools.
The returns show that the receipts
from tbe sa e of permits have fallen
off materially through the loweriug
of the price from |5 to $'. However, ss many outsiders were evading the payment of permit fees, it
is expected tbat the lower charge will
result iu a marked increase from
tbis source when tbe tonrist season
is iu full swing.
Tbe turnover from the government sale of liquor for the year is
expected to approximate $12,000,-
000, and tbe profit approximately
92,000.000, which plainly shows
that despite tho prices for liquor—
due to numerous taxes—the consumer is not being forced to pay
heavy toll to lbe dispenser of wet
Premier Oliver's speaking tour of
the neighboring provinces—Alberta
and Saskatche van—on the question
of tbe equalization of freight rates,
has left no doubt of the attitude of
tbe sister provinces regarding tbis
momentous issue. In every center
Premier Oliver was given a hearty
welcome and warmly thanked for
tbe ligbt be threw upon this subject. The net result was the lining
up solidly of the tbree western provinces in tbe tight for lower ireight
rates Eminent financial men and
manufacturers see in the coming
westward flow of prairie grain a remarkable industrial expansion in
British Columbia, witb better times
ior all citizens.
All tbis talk of an.iinpending gens.
eral in British Columbia is Bimply
inspired gossip, according to Hon.
J. D. MacLean, provincial secretary
and minister of education. As acting premier, he states that tbe government has no intention of appeal-,
ing to the people at present, maintaining that tbe government having
two sessions more to go, and witb
tbe province in a flourishing condition, tbe people must be well satisfied witb things as they are. This
also appears to be the opinion of
politicians in general, despite tbe
determined campaign of criticism
being carried on by Mr. Bowser
and some of bis supporters.
This is "Fire Prevention" week
all over Canada and now tbat tbe
fight against the red destroyer is in
full swing, Hon T. D. Pattullo,
minister o| lands, bas issued another
appeal to all citizens of the province. It is to bear in mind at all
times tbat only the utmost care will
retain for British Columbia ber
wonderful timber asset. Tbe fight
must be kept up relentlessly.
Test of Tensile Strength
of Mr. Frechette's Invention Proves to Be
Highly Satisfactory
whieh man has outwitted bruin,
The Indian woinun Bnd her eight-
year old daughter, he writes, were
gathering moss on the shore of Qreat
Slave Lake,Canada, when the mother,
observing o clump of gnarled spruces
not far off, sent her little girl there
to see whether she conld find 1-erries
The child found instead a rouud hole
that led into a cavern beneath the
roots of the trees, which stood upon a
little knoll. She oalled to her mother
to come and see it.
On kneeling and peering within the
mother discovered a bear. Turning
swiftly round, sho sat down in such a
way that her body completely blocked
the hole and shut out all light. Then
she sent her child on the run for
camp to fetch her father with a gun.
To anyone not versed in woodcraft
the squaw would seem to be extraordinarily brave; but bravery did not enter into the act. The woman knew
bears; tbat is all. She knew that so
long as all light was blocked from the
hole the croature would lie still.
When the father arrived he shot the
bear—and a big fellow he was!

Many Subjects Discussed by the Directors
A. A. Frechette, inventor of the
Frechette 2 in-1 snap hook, this
week received a letter from W. F
McMabon, of Trail, vice-president
of tbe local company organized to
manuiacture tbe patented device,
who has been in eastern Canada for
several months arranging for machinery and to bave patterns of the
article made,saying tbat he had bad
a quantity of tbe new snap book
made and that tbey had been shipped
to f his city.
A test, says Mr. McMahon Id bis
letter, had been m ide of the tensile
strength of tbe 2-in-l snap hook in
competioD with the leading hook
now on tbe market. Tbe IJ inch
2-in-l hook broke at 1900 pounds,
while tbe other broke at 1650. Of
tbe 1-inch hooks tbe 2-in-l made a
mucb better showing. The 2-in-l
gave way at 1400 pounds, wbile its
competitor collapsed at 500. Tbis
test iB considered as highly satisfactory, as, witb tba other improvements possessed by the 2 in-1, it is
sure to find a permanent aDd popular place on the market.
It is the intention of tbe local
company to manufacture books for
harness, cranes and derri :ks and
any other industrial purpose for
whicb they may be needed.

The citizens' fundamental right
of freedom of speech, and not alone
liberty of tbe press, was the issue as
the court analyzed it. In a ringing
declaration tbe highest tribunal in
the state set forth that the people
are soverigo, tbat the officers are
servants and that the citizen has a
right to discuss his government witb
out fear of being called to account
in fbe courts, so long as be does not
advocate violence aod sedition. The
conrt upheld the contention^)! the
Tribune that tbe citizen in bis sovereign capacity is abovo all  officers.
In the days of "divine right of
kings'' a case sucb as tbe 110,000,-
000 libel suit might bave had foundation, tbe court beld, but today it
is abhorrent to the fundamental
principles of government.
"History leaches," said the decision, "that human liberty can not
be secured unless tbere is freedom
to express grievances,"
The decision,wbicb waB written by
Chief Justice Floyd E. Thompson,
holds tbat if an action of tbis sort
could be maintained against a newspaper, then it could be used by men
in power to muzzle Jatiy individual
private citizen wbo ventured to
speak his views of government.
Of the suit itself, whicb Chicago's
corporation at the direction of ex-
Mayor Thompson had brought
against the Tribune in the name of
tbe City of Chicago, demrnding
110,000,000 because of articles
printed in tbe Tribune iu the summer of 1920, tbe court said:
"This action is out of tnne wfth
tbe spirit of the day and bas no

"Thc greatest feat of steam transportation to my knowledge," said C.
E. Stockdlll, of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, recently, "was the movement of the grain crop of 1022."
From Sept. 1 to Nov. 81, a period
of 91 days, the Canadian Pacific
Railway loaded and shipped an average of 1,265 cars per day. This requiring the dispatching of a train
every 45 minutes during that entire
period, carrying more than 1,000,000
bushels daily. This movement exceeded even that of the bumper crop
year of 1915.

Notes, Notions and Notables
The American Indians are uot,Jas many persons suppose, a dying race. There are now
more than 340,000 of them in the United

there were twenty years ago. Indeed, there
are now as many as there were a hundred

The air was full of talk and music countless
centuries before man invented wireless broadcasting. Any number of other creatures whom
we never hear and never can  hear are busy
talking to each other,'writes A Naturalist in
the London Evening News.    All sound comes
to the human ear in the form  of  vibrations.
Our ear is so constructed that it can catch
only a range of seven octaves of sonnd, constituting from 30  to 30,000 vibrations a second. Dogs, cats and many other creatures can
hear a lot of sounds that we miss. Take your
dog out for a walk by the side of a wood at
night, and see how he keeps pricking up his
ears as he hears noises too indefinite for the
human ear to catch.   Watch  two cats iu a
room. One will suddenly cock au ear, turn its
head, aud listen. A moment later it will suddenly get up and cross the  room.    For some
reason, a ,woman's ear can catch a higher
pitched sound than a man's,   A  woman  can
often hear a bat's high note, for instance, tha t
h inaudible to a man.   Spiders are constantly
making sounds, and listening to sounds, that
are inaudible to us.   Lurking out of sight   in
their lair, they can tell just what insect is approaching and something of its strength and
emotions—whether it is fresh or tired, angry
or good tempered. Some of this "wing talk"
even our clumsy   ears   can  catch—but not
much of it.   A bee's wing normally vibrates
about 440 times a second, making a musical
note A.    If the bee is tired it makes the note
E, with 330 vibrations a second. A housefly's
note, too. is E, with 330 per second vibrations.
Spiders and scorpions show every sign of rage
if you "jam" nature's wireless by  twanging a
tuning-fork in their vicinity.

The Rev. Dr. S. D. Chown, head of the
Methodist church for all Canada, is noted for
his subtle wit. One evening while visiting in
a large American city he was entertained at
dinner. Near the minister sat a pompous millionaire manufacturer, a stout man with a
loud, coarse laugh, who ate and drank a good
deal and frequently embarrassed his associates with a crude joke. One of this man's
yarns was levelled at our brilliant pastor,
whom be did not know from Adam. Sufficient
it was for him that Dr. Chown's garb was
clerical. Here • was a parson, consequently
here was a chance to poke a little fun at the
parson's trade. "I have three sons," he began
in a loud tone, nudging his neighbor aud winking towards the pastor; "three tine iads. They
are in business. I had always said that if ever
I had a stupid son I'd make a preacher of
him." The millionaire roared out his discordant laugh, and tie minister said to him, with
a quiet smile: "Your father thought differently from you, eh?"

"Would Wake Up Screaming"
•s. —
"The Least Sudden Noise or Loud Talking
Would Startle Him."
"Up to the age of eight, my boy was
a strong healthy lad, full of life and
energy. While playing 'cap frog one
day with some boys of his own age,
and, while in a stooped position, a
big boy pimped on his back and in
falling my boy caught his foot in an
iron grating and'dislocated his hip.
The pain was so great tlmt lie fainted
and the other boys were so frightened
tliey ran away, l'or hours he suffered
terrible pain and when found and
brought home was very weak, with
hi' thigh and leg swollen twice its
size. The doctor set the bone but the
pain and exposure were too much for
the poor boy and he became unconscious A high fever set in and for
weeks he lay between life and death
raving for hours at a stretch, One
day he opened his eyes and mtirmur-
red 'Mother,' but this is the only word
he could utter h. was so weak, tut I
knew the worst was over He got
stronger but for months was in a
nervous condition. The lenstsutlden
noise or loud talking would startle
him and he would begin trembling.
Hs was quite lame and the swelling
still remained. The doctor gave him
a tonic and told me to rub the leg with
olive oil. This reduced the swelling
and took away the lameness, but the
nervousness remained. The poor
child would waken in the night
screaming at the top of his voice.
The doctor gave him several different
tonics but tliey were tlo use. I found
a circular about Carnol and it seemed
so different from other tonics I had
heard of; tliat I thought I would get
a bottle! Three bottles were all that
was needed to make my boy like his
own self again. It is hard toconvince
my friemis that the change in him
now is entirely due to Carnol. Of
course I still have to watch him and
give him Carnol occasionally but I
know that he will soon be as strong
again as ever he was. "
Mrs. P., Montreal
Carnol is sold by yonr druggist,
and if you can conscientiously say,
after you have tried it, that it hasn't
done you any good, return'the empty
bottle to him aud he will refund your
money. 2-622
A Story for Golfers
Loral Ri Idell, one nl ihe Britis-I)
delegates t> the Wellington con
ference who made many American
friends while in theStates, RpeikirH
at a recent luncheon at ihe Criccieth
Golf cluh, told this Btory:
The greatest hero in golf history
was a Scotsman who in the year
1710 used to start playing at dawn
and end by putting at the last green
by candlelight. Matters reached
such a Btage that bin wife, who wae
an innkeeper, applied for a separation order on the ground that her
husbanil so neglected  his  business
that he did not properly support
The circumstance mitiblec tbe
man to makeone of tbe most pa
tbetic declarations |n history. "Let
her have the business'" he said,
"provided sbe gives me sufficient to
clothe and feed myself and provide
myself with golf balls."
The magistrates must have
thought it a proper disposition of
the family property, for they decreed accordingly, and the gentle-i
min lived to be ninety-five years
old and continued his golf playing
to the end!

Now is the time of the year when
the nature and composition of the
fertilizers that are likely to be used
for next season's crops should be well
studied. A bulletin that is particularly recommended for this purpose is
entitled "Fertilizers for Field Crops,"
of whicrh Dr. Frank T. Shutt, Dominion chemist, and B. Leslie Ems lie,
soil fertility specialist, are the authors, and wbich can be had without
charge on application to the publican
tions branch, department of agriculture, Ottawa. The plan aud scope of
the.bulletin havo heon suggested by en
quirles received and include, first, the
results from recent experiments; sec*
ond, a discussion of the source, nature, function and value of the various manures, fertililers, and soil
amendments; third, an explanation of
the formulae and factors involved iu
the valuation of fertilizers and preparations of home mixtures and, fourth,
suggestions for the fdrtilizer treatment of field crops, etc.
Regarding commercial fertilizers,
the Dominion Fertilizers' Act provides for the registration of every fer
tilizer offered for sale as such in Canada. A regtttratiou number is given
and this number serves as a means of
identification, for the act provides
that the guarantee of analyses, to
gether with the registration number
ofthe fertilizer, shall be stencilled on
each bar or other container or printed
legibly on a tag attached durably
thereto. In connection with this pro«
vision of the act the bulletin points
out that ou the market there are
numerous—far too numerous—brands
of ready mixed fertilizers that con'
tain various percentages and propor
tions of nitrogen, phosphoric acid and
potash. Many of those are described
by the manufacturers as being spec
ially adapted for the needs of certain
crops. The farmer, however, should
study the composition, not tho name
of the fertilizer. Some fertilizer mixtures are called by attractive and
often very pretentious names. But a
name, especially if a misnomer, is a
poor basis whereon to bnild the reputation of a fertilizer. To safeguard
farmers against misrepresentation in
naming, the present regulations in
connection with the fertilizer act do
not permit the name of any crop or
group of crops as part of the brand
name; neither do they permit the use
of any name as part of the brand
which iu the pinion of the minister
of agriculture is considered  misleads-

The Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation was recently obtained, are: "To provide a Home aud Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training aud Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such ser«
vice, perish every year; and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large aud greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government ollices in the various provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 250 Infant Blind in the Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the first home was opened iu New York City; they have now homes
in 13 States, all doing excellent work. In England, some time ago, Sir Arthur Pearson organized "Sunshine House," Chorley Wood, for Blind Babies,
and he claims that it is the only oue iu the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boaid. While the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
province, so that this APPEAL for funds will be Dominion wide, and an
early and generous response is confidently expected. Cheques should be made
payable to the Canadian Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances
will be promptly acknowledged.
