Why the Greedy Bass
Got Into the Frying Pan
" Tbis is not a fish story, because
it's true.
Last Sunday while three or four
of tbe week-enders from tbis city
were strolling on the beach at Christina lake they met little Betty McCallum trying to carry a four pound
bass without showing signs of being
"Where did you get tbe big fish?"
asked tbe week-enders.
"I caught it in tbe lake," replied
the little
"But how did vou catch itl"
"With my hands."
Tbe last answer s emed so ridiculous tbat tbe men tried to laugh it
off as a very clever joke.
Bettv wouldn't have it that way,
however, and sbe took tbe men down
to tbe sbore and demonstrated bow
tbe fish had been caught witb ber
bare bands.
The bass, wben quite close to
shore, had caught a large eunfish for
its luncheon. Tbe auofisb was too
large for the bass' tbroat and it
stuck tbere. This evidently choked
the bass, and it quickly reappear
on tbe surface for fresh air. As it
did so Betty grabbed it.
The moral of this piscatorial
episode is self-evident: If tbe bas*
had not misjudged the size of tbe
suofisb it would still be a happy inhabitant of Christina lake.

Ottawa, Augt 3.—That Oovernor

Appeal for Western Canadian Unity
Special OontA*spondence of The Sun.
Vancouver, August 3.
Perhaps the outstanding speech upon the
vital question of western Canadian unity was
that delivered to a crowd which overflowed
the huge ballroom of the Vancouver hotel last
week by Hon. Charles A. Dunning, minister
of railways in the late Liberal government of
Canada. If there were any doubters in the
attentive audience as to the great need for the
western provinces tn stand firmly behind the
progressive, low tariff policy of Hon. Mackenzie King, they were converted, and throughout the week the chief topic of discussio has
been Hon. Mr. Dunning's speech.
The former Saskatchewan premier roused
his audience to cheers when be proved that
the lowering of the duty on automobiles had
not only saved the people of Canada millions
of dollars, but had resulted in the largest
manufactnrers of automobiles in Canada pr •
ducing more motor cars in the first alf *-f
1926 than during all of 1925. The same
applied to farm machinery, he, declared. He
contended that reasonably lowered tariff alone
spelled prosperity for the entire Dominion.
Hon. Mr. Dunning deeply regretted the fact
that the "autocratic" attitude of Hon. Mr.
Meighen had caused the death of v ry impor
tant legislation, statutes that only required
the approval of the governor general to make
them law. Sevejal which he enumerated had
passed both houses, but remained inoperative.
This applied chiefly, he explained, to old age
pensions. Due to the action of the Conservatives, the bill was killed in the senate, and
meanwhile needy old people of Canada were
denied the blessing which were their due
Penticton, B.C., August 4—No
clues have so far been'found to tbe
murderer of William Hunt, 60
years of age, who was found dead
near tbe roundhouse of tbe Kettle
Valley railway at South PeDtioton
on Saturday.
He had be6n shot tbrough tbe
head, robbery being the motive.
Hunt had been employed for the
last few days at tbe fires in the Penticton district aod wbb known to
bave been in possession of some
forestry meney. The murder was
particularly brutal, in tbat the man
had been shot while lying asleep in
a small depression running down to

Cheok on Oratory
At a recent conference a novel plan
was adopted for restricting the
length of speeches according to their
interest. Rach of the delegates was
armed with a large card, red on one
side, white oo the otber. After eacb
speech had beeo going for some
minntes delegates would begin to
bolJ up their cards, red side toward
the chairman. This was a sign that
tbey were bored with the speech.
Others wbo wished to bear more
would turn tbe white side toward
tbe chairman, who was thus able to
see at a glance whether the audience wanted tbe speech to continue
or not.
Wben the number of red cards
exceeded the number of white cards
he would tactfully intimate o tbe
speaker tbat time was up.
"There is no chance of another
general strike in Great Britain for
a generation and perhaps longer,"

Canada recently. He thought the

would not be settled before the fall
and perhaps not until the winter.
eral party would never cease its efforts until
old age pensions were in operation.
A system of rural credits was worked ont,
continued Hon. Mr. Dunning, a method of
financing which would have spelled relief and
great benefit to the farmers. Tnis, too, had
been killed by the Tory opposition.
The speaker urged, begged, British Columbia to stand shoulder to shoulder with the
prairie provinces, claiming that every dollar
earned by the formers meant profit to tha producers of lumber, minerals, fruit nnd fish in
tbis province.
Hon. Mr. Dunning declared that the Liberals of Canada were loyal to the British
crown in a most marked manner, and the aim
ofthe party was to build Canada to the point
where she was the most important dominion
in the empire. Canadians were loyal, he declared, because they loved to be loyal and not
because some one compelled them to be. He
maintained that tbe high-handed, autocratic
attitude of Premier Meighen was utterly distasteful to the people of Ua; ada—a free1
people within the empire, who did not want
and would not have a Mussolini, a dictator,
ruling them.
Upon the conclusion of his eloquent speech

Unfailing Method of
Judging Age of Eggs
By holding ao egg between the
eye and a 50-candlepower metal
filament lamp, or a similar light, it
is possible to tell its age to within
twelve hours.
A newly laid egg, less thao an
bour old, appears uniformly trans-,
parent, except for a few dark spots
here and there due to inequalities in
the shell. Twelve hours afterwards,
however, lighter patches appearand
tbe egg looks more or less blotchy
near the ''ends" (tbe "top" aid
"bottom"). These patches ate
more or less blurred in outline-
As time goes on tbey increase io
definition and numbers and are
more easily seen from 24 hours of
age onward. Recent research shows
tbese patches to be due to hydro-
scopicity, or affinity for water, of
certain parts of the shell. Water is
absorbed and transparent patchs
are formed. Otber parts of theshel1,
on the otber hand, lose wafer by
evaporation, and so become more
opaque. Tbe forma ion of tbe
blotches is prevented by keeping tbe
eggs in an atmosphere saturated
with moisture.

One part of the speech which Hon. Charles
Dunning delivered in Vanconver on Monday
has caused quite a stir among old country
people in various parts of the province. The
former minister of railways in the government
of Hon. Mackenz e King, who is a native of
Leicester, England, startled his audience by
reminding them that nader a clause whieh the
gov rnment of Mr. Arthur Meighen wrote
into the criminal code in 1919, any old countryman could be deported to his native land
without a trial. It simply meant, Mr. Dunning explained, that old couutry people were
discriminated against, since the native born
could not be treated in a similar manner because there was nowhere to deport them to.
In other words, an immigration agent aud tbe
minister of immigration could constitute
themselves a judge and jury under the law
and deliver their verdict without interfejence.
This condition prompted Mr. Dunning to
point out that Canada should be for all Cana
dians and not for some. Incidentally and in
spite of Conservative opposition, on no less
tban four occasions the government of Mr.
Mackenzie King succeeded in getting tbe
house of commons to sanction the removal of
this provision. But on four occasions the Con
servative majority in the senate threw out the
measure and the code still discriminates to
this extent, Itis understood ihat Canadian s

create things in a balanced manner. And so
he said to his friend to convince him of his
side of the argument; "Look up here at this
large and higb apple tree and it only produces
a smnll fruit and over there is a tiny water
melon seed wbich produces a large fruit that
weighs ten or twenty pounds. Now I should
think if things are created in a just, equal and
harmonious manner then the big tret.-, will
produce a large fruit and a small seed or plant
will produce a small fruit, but instead it is the
reverse and things are unbalanced in the hu
man family, in tbe animal family and the
vegetable family as well." While he was talking thus an apple fell ftom the high tree and
hit him on his nose. He realiz d his mistake
immediately and with eyes raised upward he
said: "I thank God that i was an apple and
not a watermelon, which might have smashed
my nose."

The Trans-Canada Limited, the crack transcontinental express
of the Canadian Pacitlc Railway, operated from May to September, completed Its 1924 schedule on September 13th, when its
last trains started and on September 17th these trains steamed
Into the termini at Montreal and Vancouver, bringing to a close
bne of tho service's most successful seasons. The train covers
the 2.83G miles of Its run between the two cities in 90 hours and
ita Toronto-Vancouver run of 2,7/97 miles In 86 hours.
Mr. C. B. Foster, Passenger Traffic Manager, summing up
the season's performance, gave out some remarkably interesting
figures which afford a partial Insight into the magnitude ot the
task of maintaining such a service. The Trans-Canada Limited
began its runs this year on May 18th, and before being discontinued made 119 trips in each direction, or 238 ln all. The
equipment, of the train ls limited to one baggage, one dining rar,
four standard sleepers, one lO-conipartment car Vancouver to
Montreal, and one 10-compartment car Toronto to Winnipeg,
with a drawing room-3-compartment observation sleeper Montreal to Vancouver, plus a local sleeper on the west-bound
movoment only from Fort William to Winnipeg. Thus tie maximum accommodation available ln each direction between the
East and Winnipeg is forty-eight i-.ectlons, twenty-three compartments and five drawing rooms, while between Winnipeg and
tho Coast there Are forty-eight sections, thirteen compartments
and five drawing rooms. The average number of passengers
on tho train at night varies from seventy-five to 110 on different
sections of the line, but for the 119 days tbe train was In service
last season there was a one-night use of approximately 100,000 berths. The
east-bound und west-bound trains together covered 6,292 miles every day,
which Includes the distance between Montreal and Vancouver, 2,886 miles,
and between Toronto and Sudbury, 2C0 miles, covered by each train and its
Toronto-Sudbury connection. Thus the season's mileage was 758,748 for
the 238 trips, or three times the distance from the earth to the moon.
Bach day four Trans-Canada trains were in motion over the Company's
lines in each direction. At 8 A.M. each day, one was west-bound between
Cartler and Chaplcau, ono between Kenora and Winnipeg, one between Medicine Hat and Calgary, and one between North Bend and Vancouver, while at
that hour one east-bound was approaching Glacier, one approaching
Regina, one east of Fort William and one between Chalk River and Ottawa.
Ten complete sets of equipment, of which four were in motion each woy
every day and one was being cleaned, refitted and turned round at each end
of the run, were required to maintain the service.
Powerful lecomotlvea

Cnnssda tralna and tea
seta of equipment are ia
constant operas-Jon.
The year's schedule called for 22 changes of engine on every Trans-
Canada run from Montreal to Vancouver and two engines for the
Toronto-Sudbury connection made by each train. There were 48 engine
inns daily for the service. Including these engine-stops, the trains made
only 26 stops on their whole run. It is on thiB steady movement at a
uniform speed over long distances and not on high speed that the trains
maintained their fast schedules over the transcontinental journey and the
elimination of all but essential stops resulted in the smooth running for
which It is noted. Owing to the necessity of changing trains crews on
such a long run, about 14 crews, or about 84 men, were required for one
trip on each train, while 48 sleeping and dining-car employees were
required for each trip on one train or nearly 400 men for this branch of the
Trans-Canada service. None of the hundreds of employees whose duties
also associate them with the Trans-Canada Limited, but who do not travel
with it, i3 included in these figures.
