Meighen's Policy of Bribes
-    Br R. J. DEACHMAN
Three things stand out in my memory as happy recollections of my childhood. One was my desire to capture the
bag of gold supposed to exist at the end of the rainbow. (I
haven't got it yet.) Another was to catch a bird by putting
salt on its tail, and a third to invent perpetual motion by adjusted weights on the spokes of a wheel, or biC using a clock
where the spring would wind itself up as it ran down,and the
clock would go on Foreve*. These things passed away with
my milk tooth, but tbey linger in the minds of some statesmen. The bag of gold may have passed out of the mind of
Arthur Meighen; the salt on the bird's tail may no longer interest him, but he is fresh from a trip to the Maritimes, where
he has been busying himself explaining his ideas on perpetual motion.
Tipping Yourself
Briefly, Mr. Meighen's  ideas  are  these:   The  protective
tariff of which he is so able a defender, is not doing the people ofthe end provinces of the Dominion any good.   Accord
ing to this gentleman, high protection works well in a  round
power.    At   tbe  present   time this

for hia friends to push blm farward.

addresses since he returned from the

himself intimitely acquainted with
problems of tbe overseas fruit trade.
Ottawa, August 19.—The
Canadian commercial apple
crop iudicates a slight drop in
yield since the July estimate,
but it is still about equal to
last year's production, says
a bulletin issued by the feder
al department of agriculture.
The British Columbia pear
crop shows a considerable increase over last year and it is
estimated at 100,500 boxes,
compared with 16,484 boxes.
The plum and prune crop is
estimated at 277 per cent, or
215.350 boxes, compared with
77,760 boxes in 1925.

Look Again
Let us analyze tbe proposition
It startB with an obvious truth, alt-
ways an excellent plan in defend
ing a sophistry. Mr. Meighen says
thnt the end proviocts of Cunada
have received very little benefit from
high protection. Write tbat upon
the tablets of enduring mtmory.
Hritish Coliimbio, Alberta and
M ritime pnpers please copy. All
Tory campaigns previously conduct
ed in these provinces, on tbe basis
of high protection as a policy, were
therefore founded upon false hopes,
The admissio* is worth recording.
It is wirth emphasizing That is
the first point in the new policy,
Tbat point* is well take . Any
policy 'if high protection must necessarily draw bu.'in*'s from tbe
circumference to the center. That
has been frequently poinded out. It
goes without saying. It has been
true in the United Statea—it must
follow in the Maritimes.
Test 'it on Coal
Now. follow Mr. Meighen in his
next step. He proposes to apply tbis
idea to coal. He wants t.'j bring tbe
ooal from Nova Scotia and Alberta
to Ontario. We import approxi.
roately 16,000,000 tons of ooal per
annum, reduction of approximately
4,000,000 tons siooe   1921, due to
States, witb about 750,000 toos
from Qreat Britain. It is true that
we could use Canadian coal if we
are willing to pay the price—there
is no doubt of that. There are two
ways ol doing it—one is by putting
a stiff duty on coal, the otber by
bonuslng the railways to carry the
coal at a very low price. If the duty
is put on Ontario will have to foot
the bill. That would be the b*Bt
way of doing it, for it would give to
tbat great provincs an sntimate
knowledge of the workings of a bigh
tariff, Mr. Meighen's mind seems to
ran along tbe line nf bonusing the
railways to carry the coal at a very
low price. No figures cf cost have
beeo giveo. But if coal to supply
the needs of the central provinces is
to be brought from Nova Scolia or
Alberta, it is safe to assume tbat not
less tban 84 a too on 16,000,000
tons, or $64,0110,000, will be required. Mr. Meighen may deny
this. L*t him get down to facts and
figures. Building dream castles in a
political Utopia where aconomic
facts can be ignored may be good
enough for a pastime, but a man
wbo aBpires to the premiership ought
to start with the foundation.       ,
The Enormous Cost
Anyway there haB to be an enormous bill paid by somebody before
tbis thing can be done, Wbo is so
pay ill Tbe sum given bere as an
estimate is pretty close to the entire
amount of tbe provincial tax income
of the provinces of Ontario and
Quebec. It exceeds by six times tbe
provincial taxes of the entire Mari-1
time provinces, and is 2D per cent
more tban the entire expenditure
for provincial purposes of the three
prairie provinces. Who foots this
bill? Priuce Edward Island has lit.
tie to gain from it—its production is
agriculture. Ontario and Quebec
will be the loBers, because tbe*e provinces are tbe heaviest taxpayers in
tbe Dominion, and -bey will be
called to foot the bill. Manitoba can
get nothing. Will Mr. Meighen try
to tell tbe people of lhat province
wbat hope there jb for them in this
adveottueof Mr. Meigheu'e! Saskatchewan votes Grit anyway, and,
in the opinion of Mr. Meigheu, des>

to get a market for ite coal, but if it
has to pay the cost of the sbot it
would he better off without it. British Columbia of course, h s nothing
to gain. Mr. Meighen never faces

Meighen with a wave  of  the   arm.
faces of the members as they voted
a bonus of 20 or 30 million dollars
to tbe C.P.R, for carrying coal below costs.
Why go?
But turn again to the Maritime
provinces of Canada, They jut ont
into the Atlantic like tbe British
isles from the coast of Europh. Nature intended these provinces to be
great trading and manufacturing
centers. As some one said of England:
"God aod the ocean
t And some guiding star,
In higb cabal,
Have made us what we are,"
Tbe Maritimes, like England,bave
the natural resources. Unlike Eng
land, they bave refused to take advantage of tbe ocean. Tbe ocean
brings tbe world to tbe doors of tbe
Maritimes. It costs less to take
grain from Canada to E ".rope than
to uao, e it from London to Southampton wheo it gets there. It is
access to tbe sea—access to tbe
world markets, that will yet remake
the Maritimes. Tbe people of these
provinces are far from Uckiog in
genius and ability. They have a
surprising mastery of the art of
politics and. statesmanship. With
the problem before them of broadening their markets and going out
aftei tbe trade of the world they are
little likely to hang oo to the bootstrap policy of Mr. Meighen.
Shrewd men will want to count the
cost. Tbey will be unwilling to ac
cept ;Mr. Meighen vague intimation
of a new heaven built up by taking
money out of one pocbet and putting it in another—the cost is too
heavy, the danger too great.
Following a recent tour ol western Canada, W. L. Smith, former
editor of the "Farmer's Sun", writes
that he will be surprised If the
aggregate wfoeat crop of the Prairie
Provinces falls below 400,000,000
bushels. "It will not be surprising
if the 500,000,000 mark is nearly
reached," states Mr. Smith.

commissioner of the Soldiers' Settlers Board. So far this year 1,430
families were placed on farms in
the prairie provinces by this organization.
Hogs to the value of $400,000 were
shipped from the Prince Albert district ln 1925. This sum was far in
advance of that received the previous year and the increase was duo
to a considerable extent to the activities of the agricultural society boosting hog production. This year the
hog raisers' slogan is one million
dollars worth of hogs, and from
present indications this mark is more
than likely to be attained.
Arrangements for the export ol
large quantities of British Columbia
seed potatoes to California are being made by a potato grower of that
state. The British Columbia potatoes are desired in California for
seed purposes because they introduce new strength into the southern strain. Experiments were
made with Canadian grown seed
last year in California and growers
were well satisfied with the results.

at the various Hudson Bay posts
along Hudson Bay and James Bay
the furs are brought down by canoe

Remarkable expansion of passenger traffic into and out of Montreal has been reported during July
and August by the passenger department of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. The "Red Wing" and the
"Alouette" on the Boston run and
the "Rideau" and "York" to Toronto, four new trains do-luxe

markets the pricea a ust he kept below those of competitors, whether
local or foreign. This is a fundamental priuciple of economics tbat a
kindergarten olass could understand,
yet the protectionist politician its
blind to this point. This fact can be
clearly shown by means of an illustration, thus: .
Some tradesmen are making  and
Belling a particular type of  wagon
for $100.    A foreign  manufacturer
enters  the  field with an article of
equal value (tbe price of wbich, like
all  imports, contains   both  profi Is

of  25   per cent, which is placed on
such wagons, thus raising the   price
of the imported wagon to $125 by
adding the duty to tbe  compeiitlv .

there is notbing  to  prevent it,  accordingly as tbe price was increased,

which the later name of Wight was evolved.
Withdrawal of the independent candidate
cousiderably clarifies the political atmosphere
in this constituency. It now resolves itself
into a clean cut fight between the Liberal and
Conservatives parties—between competent,
progressive and economical government and
tariff juggling and a wild scramble for office.
Mr. Cossitt, the Liberal candidate, is an oid-
timer of the district, very popular, and is iden
tified with one of our leading industries. He
is thoroughly familiar witn the needs and
problems of the district. His election by a
good majority is freely predicted even in
this end of the riding, which is considered
a Tory stronghold.
Speaking at Orillia the other   day,   Mr.
Meighen said: v
"Tariff revision on farm products will be
in the very first tariff revism we make. We
will make only one revision, and in tbat re
vision we will place the tariff on farm   products entering Canada to just as higb a
level as the American tariff."
But tbere is a joker in the pack. On a good
many farm products tbe United  States tariff
is lower than that of Canada.    Mr.  Meighen
apparently likes tbe "brick fer brick  argument" when talkiug in Ontario—that is, he
promises a tariff wall of tha same dimensions
as the United States "brick for brick."
If such a policy were followed the duties on
some United States products entering Canada
would be lowered. In this connection the foi
lowing statistics are illuminating:

The internationrl race for the perfection of
television—transmission by wire or wireless
of an animated scene—has been won by Great
Britain, accordiug to tho London Post. Within a few months, it is declared, a central television station may be erected. John L. Baird,
who has perfected telev sion after years of
continuous research, has been giving practical
demonstrations. When he speaks before the
transmitting apparatus in his laboratory his
words can be heard and the movements of his
face clearly seen in another room. His lips
may be seen enunciating each word, and
shadows change with changing expressions.
As soon as the government permission can be
obtained a limited numbers of relevisors will
be constructed and sold by a company already
for this purpose. Baird declares his invention
does not resemble in any way the telephoto-
graphic or still pictures. The essential thing
about television is a living scene, viewed the

Wight, just off the south coast of England
has been of some importance almost from the
beginning of history.    Ancient writers have
shown it to be un export point for tin from
certain distiicts of Horn wall and Devon.   The
principal majitimes ofthe ancient  world, the
Greeks and the Phoenicians are said to have
vied for this trade. The Phoenicians first enjoyed a monopoly, carrying tbe tin to Gaul, to
Spain, through the Straits of Gibraltar and to
points in the Mediterranean. Later the Greeks
of Marsielles followed the track of the Phoenicians until about 200 years before Christ,
and before the days of Polybius they had acquired a large share of the trade. Ancient
Wight also was a seat of conflict. The Britons
and tribes of northern Gaul are believed to
have  fought battles upon it.    Later, in the
days of the Emperor Vespasian, it was the
scene of sanguine  warfaje the Romans and
the natives. According to Suetonius, Vespasian, on an expedition to  Britain, subjugated

How can thy ehin that burden bear?

Bass of the North Country
The Manitoba Government has
commenced an agricultural survey
of unoccupied lands in the province
which when completed will provide
the incoming settler with all available information on such lands. A
total of 2,474 homesteads have been
taken up in Western Canada thia
year. All post-war immigration
records were broken recently when
1,681 immigrants passed through
Winnipeg recently in 48 hours.
The moods and fighting qualities of the bass of the
north country are fully explained In this article,
written by Ozark Ripley, the well-known authority on
Somehow or other. I am never impressed with the
ubiquity of bass until I travel into the north parts.
Mr. Microptcrus, better known as the small mouth bass,
often as red-eye, seems to thrive, somehow, "wherever
you place him. In the South he lives only in swift
mountain streams, but ln the North country his abiding
places are ln lakes, where he grows to be a big, lusty
(ellow, broad, strong and willing to tackle any offering
an angler sends his way.
I tnought tor a time that the range of the small
mouth, as far as the north country was concerned,
was limited to Lake Penage, the Kawartha Lakes and
OtherB In Ontario, where he is especially large and a
Vicious fighter; but I found him up in the Laurentlans,
even to Manlwaki, also along "that rail route which
runs from Montreal to Mont Laurier in Quebec. This
makes me think that, irrespective of the cold waters,
tbis fighting chap -will thrive anywhere you give him a
chance.        *t
There are parts of tho north country where one will
be puzzled a bit to find the bass, unless he strives to
bring a rise ln a proper manner. They will take the
By -with greater avidity than a brook, rainbow or
brown trout, but the offering has to be made to their
liking or not at all. If bass in tho north country like
one thing better than all else it ls a floating fly.  They
love them; they attack them whatever the shape or
color. But they have moods like otber game flsh, and
many days no response of any kind comes. . Even if
you have made a long trip and have fished northern
bass waters without immediates results thero is no reason why you should be disappointed. They will do
business when they are in the mood and at no other
I remember I once fished near Pine Rapids: Gamp
in the French River District. For four days I did
not get a single rise, though I felt they were most
profitable bass waters as they had delivered the goods
nicely during the previous season. All the time there
had been a driving wind from the northeast. Suddenly it changed to a mild west one on the afternoon
of the fifth day. All at once bass began to rise and
I never saw them do lt so fast nor ln such numbers
in all my life. They had found my lures and the
weather to their liking and continued their striking
mood for many days.
We make long journeys to the north country for bass
and other game fish. It invariably pays to be provided
with an assortment of lures. There are days when
they will look at nothing but the underwater lures;
then at what we might call the semi-underwater baits,
and, too, as sure as fate, will come hours when only
floating flies or casting baits will tempt them. The
man who tries continually add ls equipped with everything right, usually la the one who eomes home with
the record-breakers. _ ..
The Earl of Clarendon, British
Under-Secretary for Dominion affairs, and T. Macnaughton, chairman of the overseas committee, are
making a tour of Canada to investigate conditions under which the
3,000-family scheme is being handled
in this country. They are issuing
glowing reports of what they have
seen. The full three thousand families will have been brought over
here by the end of next year.
A civic vacation party arranged
by the Kiwanis Club of Shenandoah,
Iowa, recently passed through Toronto and Montreal en route to London, England. There were 600 who
availed themselves of the trip and
most of these had never travelled
outside the United States before in
their lives. They will pass through
Stratford-on-Avon and Oxford on
their way to London and will make
a side-trip to Paris and the French
battlefields during their stay.
"Association football in the Dominion of Canada bids fair within
the next few years to become a rival
to the brand of soccer played by

was tbe comment of Joe Smith, captain of the All-England Association
Football team which has just completed its seven-week tour of Canada. The team travelled close on
ten thousand miles on its tour and
played twenty games against all
kinds of teams. They did not lose
a single game and scored 105 goals
in all with only 18 registered

IN the past several years the public has
been told many things about beer, yet it
is not surprising that many people should
not know what beer really is, for the merits
of pure beer have been almost entirely neglected by controversioi.dlists.
Pure beer is a scientifically made malt solution, derived from malted barley and flavored with hops. In this malted condition
the grain is much more nourishing than in
its natural state and the beer has many beneficial activities when taken as a beverage.
In the first place pure beer Is in Itself a
complete food, rich in proteins-, maltose
and dextrin, mineral Baits and organic
phosphorous compounds. It is superior
to either cider or wine in its nourishing
qualities. Consumed at tho rate of
one bottle per meal, it would replace
300 grammes of bread in food value,
because of its content of extractives,
carbohydrates and proteins.
Pure beer assists valuably In the assimilation of other
foods, for, liy reason of Its hop-liltler principles, Its
weak alcoholic strength and its dissolved carbonic
acid hus, It exerts a beneficially stimulating action on
the stomach.
Beer Is a hover-tie rich In vltamincs, so nccesj-jry lo

been completely sterilized by prolonged boiling in Iho

^ still remaining, easily accessible big
game hunting territory on thc continent.
It is not necessary to go far afield from
the railway and some of thc best hunt-
fag grounds are as follows: Beginning
at the east, there is thc East Kootenay
district, reached from Invermere. Two
ranges may be hunted here; in the
Rockies on thc east are lo be found
moose, mule and whitetail deer, mouti
tain goat, mountain sheep, grizzly, cin-
ssumwm   *mA   Uw-ie   —**r.    wtis——,   atnnssg
the Selkirks on the wes;, are caribou,
mule and whitetail deer, mountain goat,
grizzly, cinnamon and black bear. Very
satisfactory wild fowl shooting may be
enjoyed on the lakes and flats in the
late Fall.
Deer, grizzly and b,ack bear, caribou and goat are found in the country
around Chase. Deer are found from 4
miles of thc town; bear from 20 miles;
raribou beyond the ."0 mile mark, arid
goat front 30 milct. Excellent gamr

Kamloops is the gateway to a rich
sporting region where goats, brown,
cinnamon, black and grizzly bear,
small deer, moose and occasional caribou and sheep (3 varieties) are ts be
found. From here^expeditionJ to tbe
Fort Fraser country may be arranged—
including about 176 miles of canoeing—
where deer, bear and other large game
may be shot.
A hunting area rapidly growing id
favor is the Caribou District, reached
from Ashcroft It is off the beaten
path, therefore big game is plentiful,
and includes grizzly, black and brown
bear, moose, caribou, goat and sheep.
Fishing for gamey trout is another attraction of   this  region.
Of course the Cassiar District to tbe
north stands in a class by itself, for the
cost of a hunting trip there prohibits a
great influx of hunters, insuring good
bags for those who hunt there. Thirteen hunters taken in by Frank Call-
