Victoria, March 27.—Keen exception is being taken by Hou. T.
D. Pattullo, minister of lands, to reports appearing in eastejn newspapers with regard to timber exports
in the raw from tbis province.
"A great deal of talk was beard
during the last session of the legislature," said the minister during an
interview recently "But if people
only realized tbe situation they
would not be misled by erroneous
statements, which are often made
by persons with some ulterior mo
tive" ' ,
Tbe minister points out tbat while
233,000,000 board feet of log- were
exported from British Columbia las)
year, 100,000,000 feet went to Ja
pan, the balance, 133,000,000 feet,

industries were being built up in
the United States through the im
portatiou of Rritish Columbia logs.
The truth is th t tbe United States
last year exported ICO,000,000 feet
of logs to Japan, so tbat there was
only a balance of 33,000,000 feet of
British Columbia timber left to be
handled iri mills across the line—so
small a quantity ae to be eutirefy

The Pacific Great Eastern investigation has become little more than a
memory. Expert evidence hae
proven that the contracts let by tbe
government for the work on the line
were much lower than those secured
by other railways building branches

the discard in a few days, and while
Premier Oliver refused for years to
spend public money on an enquiry,
claiming there was no reason for
one, tbe investigation bas shown,
more tban anything else, that the
government managed to worry
through a difficult situation in a

The seventh of Canada's direction-finding stations was recently

branch of the Department of Marino
and Fisheries, to assist the boats
and ships navigating the Bay of
Fundy and the coastal waters extending to Boston. This station
tends to make the route favored by
the Canadian Pacific steamships in
winter, already splendidly equipped
with safety devices, still safer. By
means of the apparatus, the wireless operator of any ship in distress
within 400 miles of the Canadian
shore can find his location simply by
pressing a spring. These stations
have been described as "a Godsend

Victoria, Marcb 28.—Tbe pro-,
longed efforts of the British Columbia mining industry to have the Do
minion government allow mining
machinery and equipment to enter
Canada free of duty, is soon to bear
fruit, according to a statement of
Hon. William Sloan, minister of
mines, who bas returned from Ottawa. In fact the minister states that
it is likely that the necessary legislation will be pushed through parliament this session.
The removal of tbe duty mentioned would be a great boon to the
mining interests, whicb bave for
some time been complaining strong,
ly that it has been suffering from
undue taxation. Recently the mines
of tbe interior urged the provincial
government to aid   by placing the

throughout has been something in the nature

questions figuring largely in all the speeches.
FRIDAY, MARCH 28, 1924
Notes, Notions and Notables
Not since before the war has there been
been such distinct and definite cleavage be-
tweei. Liberal and Conservative forces in the
Dominion  parliament as there is today, and
not since the  new party  was formed have
there been such cordial relations of trust between Liberals and Progressives   as now exist.   The change is due to the strongly liberal
program set   forth in  the speech  from the
throne.    In this speech it has been announced
hat, for the first time since  1913, there   will
tbe a balanced budget, and that, as a result of
this, and of economies which have been effected by the present administration a decrease h taxation is contemplated along the
lines, particularly, of reducing the tariffs  on
the implements of production.    That the government intends to carry its program out is
indicated in the speeches of Premier King, of
Hon. Ernest Lapointe, minister of justice, and
of others on the Liberal side.   National unity
based upon national jus ice is the  Match word
of the Liberal policy.
The intention of the federal goverument, as
indicated in the speech from the throne, and
as expressed in the utterances on the debate
on the address, to carry out its fiscal program
to the best of its ability, and as speedily as
possible, have within two weeks served to accentuate the cleavage between Liberal and
Conservative, and at the same time to minimize the differences which existed between
the government party and the Progressives
The latter are frankly gratified at the earnest
of good intent contained in the document in
question, and while expressing their attitude
as one of "benevolent neutality" to the minis
try, have to all intents and purposes indicated
that they will support the governments the
carrying out of its program. So that while the
ministerial party is at present two short of
having a clear majority in the house, it can be
assured of support which will place the Conservative official opposition party in a very
hopeless minority on all matters of policy.
Prior to the opening of the session, Bight
Hon. Arthur Meighen and his Conservative
followers were pressing for an election, and
were highly confident of the result thereof.
During the recess, the government was attacked fjom the platform, and in the press for
malfeasance, extravagance, waste and for
broken pledges. Since the session opened,
the attitude of the official opposition has undergone a marked change. There is no longer
talk of elections. The promise of a balanced
budget, coupled with the government's p-licy
of strict economy in the public service, have
taken the feet from under Mr. Meighen and
his forces, who are forced now to take the
paradoxical position of condemning the government for carrying out its pledges, for the
alleged breach of which they formerly blamed
it. Charges against individual members
ofthe cabine" vaguely made in the opposition
press prior to the session fail to find backing
on the responsibility of any opposition mem
ber on the floor of the house.
The general attitude of the Progressives
may be summed up in a paragraph from the
speech of Speakman of Red Deer, who after
referring to the statement of Robert Forke,
his leader, with reference to "benevolent neu
trality," said: "What is benevolent neutrality?
It means in this case simply sitting tight, but
prepared in a fair-minded way to weigh the
measures which may come before the house.
That is my interpretation of benevolent neutrality. Should we, I ask, take a position of
hostile neutrality, ready at all moments to attack aii the measures which may be submitted, in fact to attack them even before they
come before the house for consideration?
Should we take it for granted that such measures will not be acceptable in any event? It is
all in keeping with the attitude assumed since
the beginning of parliament by some honorable gentlemen to my right—I will not say all
of them—that we are here, not as independents, but as a sort of adjunct to the Liberal
party. And what is the interpretation given
to independents by these honorable gentlemen? So far as I can gather, an independent
in their opinion is a mau who on all occasions
will vote against the present government, and
with the Conservative party. That, however,
is not my opinion, or tbe opinion of the men
who sent me here to represent them. The people whom I represent sent me here for one
thing, and one thing only, and that is to
weigh, to the best of my ability, the measures
that come before this house.and if I find them,
from the point' of view of those who elected
me, to be in the best interests of the country,
to give them my support "
Getting an idea should be like sitting down
on a pin; it should make you jump up and
do something.
The practice of decorating eggs at Easter is
an old custom. In France during the second
empire the Easter egg became a thing of costliness and beauty. It was not unusual for a
single egg to cost the purchaser $4000. The
most expensive egg on record is that presented
by Napolaon III to his empress at Easter,
1862. The Easter gift took the form of a
necklace of pearls valued at $100,000,enclosed
in a golden egg on which the word Eugenie
was outlined in brilliants. Some years ago a
very beautiful Easter egg was presented to
the queen of Spain as a token of affection by
some of her subjects. It cost over $ 15,000,
and was decorated wUh flowers made of fine
metal and filled with the choicest sweets, and
several articles of exquisite jewelry. The egg
was ingeniusly illuminated by electricity. An
egg sent to the Pope of Rome in 1887 was
made of ivory and contained a ruby in a golden
case worth $10,000. A wealthy citizen of the
United States ordered to be manufactured for
his bride an egg capable of holding the whole
of her trousseau and jewelry. When the case
was completed seven men were required to
carry it to the owner's house.

As a consequence the official opposition bas

Gloomy predictions of ruin and disaster to

advanced against the government's promise of

IfThe Objects of this Institution, for which Incorporation waa recently obtained, are: "To provide a Some and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of the many of such unfortunates, who, for the lack of such service, perish every yeic*, and to return these little ones to their parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
f jThis is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in the verious provinces reveals the fact that there
are at the presant time nearly 260 Infant Blind in tbe Dominion. Nothing
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. In the United States, 16
years ago, the flrst home was opened in New Tork City; they have now homes
in 13 States, atl 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 one in the British Empire. Let us have the
SECOND in Canada. To reaoh this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Roud. While.the
Home is to be located in Ottawa it will take in the Baby Blind from every
provinoe, so that this APPBAL 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

"The Tanlac Treatment
Made Me Look and Feel

Says Petro.
Where the Best Tea Grows
The tea plant flourishes best on
tbe well drained side of a mountain
io a country wbere there is plenty
of moisture and a warm sun. Certain parts of Ceylon, India and Java
are ideal for the growing of delicious
tea, hence from these countries
coma tbe finest varieties. "SA-
LADA" is a blend f tbe choicest
qualities grown in these, tbe three
most famous tea-growing countries
in the world.
"Tbe Tanlac treatment has made
me look and feel like a different
man,,' is the positive statement of
H. G, Petro, well known citizen of
Okotoks, Alberta, Canada.
"Before taking Tanlac I was sorely
troubled with indigestion, gas bloat

made me short of breath. My ap.

poor,   and   headaches   and  dizzy
spells would strike me most every

my leg.
"Three bottles of Tanlac put me
in A-l condition in every way. I
have a rousing appetite, sleep like a
log and am rid of all my troubles,
even the swelling in my leg. Incidentally I have gained so much
weight Ibat I am too big for tbe
