Victoria,March 14.—Itis djubtful
if a political leader in British Col
umbia ever scored a more prox
oounced victory in dealing with
public affairs thau Premier Oliver
did in Vancouver wben he outlined
the province's light for fairer freight
rates to an audience that filled lhe
ballroom at the Hotel Vancouver to
overflowing. For two bourn the
farmer premier beld hie immense
audience and party politics were
forgotten in tbe discussion of an
issue wbich must play a larger part
iu the future development and
prosperity of British Columbia.
''Honest John" openly declared
',peaceful war" on tbe C.P.R, hinting that the formation of a third
parly iu tbis province bad been
brought about by tbe influence of
tbe big railway company, and wbile
anxious to keep the freight rates
matter out of the realm of politics,
he declared tbat if political opponents desired to inject politics into
the issue, hiB hat was iu the ring for
a finish fight.
He reviewed ihe rates situation at
great length, explaining tbat the
federal government at the time of
confederation had promised British
Columbia equal rights in railway
matters but tbe covenant had not
heen lived up. The east was pros-
peridg at the expense of tbe west,
but prominent eastern men, as well
u newspapers, admitted the justice
of British Columbia's olaim, realising that unity among the provinces
waa essential to the welfare of the
co.untry as a whole.
Briefly summarized, Premier Oliver's message to tbe public was that
a business corporation must not be
allowed to profit at the expense of
this province and that tbe people of
British Columbia had only to unite
aud fight in order to secure equ illi-
atioo of freight rates. This would
result, he plainly showed, in the
rapid industrial and commercial expansion of tbo Pacific province
■'It is impossible for me to tell
the story to every voter and citizen,"
be explained after the meeting, "I
intend to talk tu ag many us possible, but must rely largely upon the
ueswspapers to spread my message.
Tbey reaob all tbe people and the
tight is for everyone."
In order to bring to a head plans
for tbe settling of new citizens upon
(the vacant lands of this province,
Hop. T, D. Pattullo, minister of
lauds, has left for Ottawa, where he
will negotiate with tbe federal government. Following his trip to tbe
old couutry last fall, the minister
returned optimistic over tbe pros
pects of colonizing the west with
tthe assistance of tbe imperial au
ttborities, and it is expected tbat tbe
(present visit of Mr. Pattullo will
mean tbe adoption of a land settle •
meat and development policy wbich
will bring into use much of the uncultivated land of British Columbia-
While in Ottawa he will also take
up the question of ludian reservations, with a view to the settlement
allowed tn remain untouched since
tho filing of the special report of the
Indian commission.
Federal aid for the proposed public works projects in this province is
assured through the recent trip to
Ottawa of Hon. VV. H. Sutherland,
minister of public works. While tbe
dootor fears tbat assistance for highways will not be forthcoming, he
states that general development un -
dertaken in tbis province will be
assisted materially, withholding details of departmental plans until a
(Infinite announcement can be made.
It is known, however, that river-
bank protection work will be undertaken where noost needed; that
bridges in important places are to
be constructed and wharves erected
along tbe coast.
Another distribution of liquor
profits to municipalities will be announced in the neur future by Hon.
John Hart, minister of finance. Tne
money will be used for hocpital
purposes and improvements.

The reasons the city council barred
tbe Saturday Evening Post, tho Red
Book magazine and tbe Lidies'
Home Journal from circulation
among juvenile prisoners iu tbe cily

ground that its stories mado heroes
out ot criminals.
Tbe Ladies' Home Journal wah
barred un the ground thnl it was a

stated that this was tbe subjeot uuder discussion yesterday, although
no  definite decisions were reached.
Mr. Campbell stated that resumption of activities at Copper mount*
tain would mean utilization of tbe

Tuesday evening, till the trustees
being present.
The report of Inspector Dauiels
showed an improvement in tho
standing of the school and in the

Ottawa. — A constantly growing
appreciation on the part of Canadians of their national parks, evidenced by the continued Increase in
tho number of visitors In the last
year, is emphasized in the report or
National Parks Commissioner J B.
Harkin. Visitors to all Canadian
national parks during the yeai In
question were estimated at 166,000,
of whom more than 71,000 went to
Banff. Foreign travelers to the larger
parks were about 65.Q00. From an
economic point of view, on a basis
of $300 spent by each foreign visitor
while in Canada, the national parks
accounted for an Indirect revenue of
some $19,600,000, which amounts to
about $2.22 per capita of Canada's
present population. Other revenues
from the parks, in the way of timber
sales and concessions, accounted for
$72,000. Total appropriations for the
parks last yenr were $966,000.

Notes, Notions and Notables
The Isle of Pities, some forty miles south
of Cuba ant] belonging to it, has become one
of the most American communities on foreign
soil. Cuban officials administer the government as a part of the province of Havana, but
Americans own nearly all of the land and pay
nearly all of the taxes. The island is about
half the size of Long Island, New York.
Grapefruit, lemon and pineapple plantations
cover much of the area, and from the general
atmosphere a visitor might imagine himself
in Florida or California.
The tolls taken at the Panama canal continue to increase; for the month of January
they amounted to $1,500,000. The growing
use of the conal and the mounting returns
from its operation are causing a revival of the
suggestion for another inter-oceanic canal
across Central America. It is the belief in
Washington that before long the Panama tolls
will be sufficient to finance the building of a
second canal. .Some engineers' would favor
the construction of the new canal across the
Isthmus of Panama; others prefer the route
through Lake Nicaragua. The United States
government possesses treaty .lights over both
routes.
There are several engaging thoughts as to
what the outcome of the widespread use of
r-idio will be, says the Youth's Companio n.
Not the least pleasing of them is the idea that
thousands of boys and girls will listen for an
hour or more a day toa fair sort of spoken
iviglish, clearly enunciated. Youth is quick
and imitative. Let as hope that on the waves
of the ether may come lessons that will enlarge our vocabulary and-improve our pronunciation.
The immense riches found in the tomb of
King Tutenkhamun in the Valley of Kings at
ancient Thebes has greatly stimulated the
tourist business in Egypt. Before the war
E^ypt was a popular winter resort for wealthy
Russian and English people and for a few
Americans, but during the last few years the
h itels there have had scant patronage. The
discoveries have brought in a flood of European visitors, who have changed their book-
i igs, and the Egyptians hope that the new
generation of travelers will find how delightful Egypt is in the winter.
Experiments in France havo shown that
concrete made with slag is seldom weaker and
generally stronger than that in which gravel is
used, at the same time weighing less. We
have a whole mountain of slag in Grand
Forks. Eventually it may become an asset to
the city.
The unseating and possible disqualification
of Mr. Johnson, of Moose Jaw, an eminent
Progressive, should serve a great purpose in
the purification of our elections, says the
Montreal Witness. There are probably few
members against whom such technical irregularities could not be alleged. Their safety has
been that neither party could afford to raise
such points against each other. Here was a
case, however, where the charge could be
pointed at a member of a parliamentery group
which is out, above all things, for the purifi
cation of elections. To convict him would be
to point a thousand fingers at this sort of
purism. "Art thou also become as one of us?"
What had Mr. Johns in done? His group had
paid direct by cheque, instead of througli the
prescribed agent, and the account had not included some largesse given to a band that
serenaded the victor, or some lunch for his
scrutineers, both events after the election. It
is not to be supposed that careless bookkeep -
ing of this sort covering worse intent will be
allowed to go free in future when Progressives
can get word of it. It was cruel of the courts
to leave Mr. Johnson on the tenterhooks between heaven and earth, not knowing whether
he is disqualified from running again or not.
The worst of it is that though the law assures
us that there is no injury for which there is
no remedy, it provides no way for him to find
out, except by running again, i,. which case, if
elected, as he would be, he would be accused
of having had no right to rnn. If then the
courts found him disqualified, as they probably would—the courts not being Progressive—
he would only have succeeded in having
elected a defeated opponent who would other
wise have had small chance. If he was beaten
the question of his disqualification would re
main unanswered; and he would be horned on
the same dilemma for the best seven years of
his life, Are we right in assuming that the
most honorable of courts would act according
to the politics of the judges? They might do
so quite honestly. It is a matter of history
that that most honored of alt courts, the su
preme court of tho United States,has not been
free from this bias. The anomaly of having an
election return an utterly rejected candidate
would be avoided under the transierable vote.
The Progressives would in such a case put up
two candidates, and each Progressive elector
would give his first vote for one and his sec
ond vote for the other.
The invention of printing added a new ele
meut of power to tho race. From that hour
the brain and not the arm, the thinker and
not the soldier, books and not kings, were to
rule the world; and weapons, forged in the
mind, keen-edged and brighter than the sunbeam, were to supplant the sword and the
battle, axe.
Did you ever receive a telegram finishing
with the words "Am writing," and then sort
of paw the ground with impatience till the
letter came?

Renfrew, Ont.—Mr. Ritchie, the
station agent of the Canadian Pacific Railway, has received instructions from headquarters to rigidly
enforce the no trespassing order on
the property of this company. This
is particularly in reference to people walking down the railway track.
When accidents happen it always
entails a trouble to the company and
lately there have been complaints
that school children have been suing
the railway as a thoroughfare.
Vancouver.—"I have been in the
Alps and the Pyrenees, but I have
never seen anything that can compare with Banff," said William Fa-
▼ersham, famous English actor,
when speaking at Hotel Vancouver.
Mr. Faversham spoke of tha wonderful international dog races staged
at the winter carnival, and said that
he had on special invitation visite-1
the great motion picture plant at
Banff.
Inveremere, B.C.—An appropriation had been passed for the building
ef a depot at Lake Windermere by
the Canadian Pacific Railway.
Lake Windermere is the depot for
the whole of the Lake Win! irmere
district. It enjoys the distinction of
•eing the only station on the Lake
Windermere branch betwen Golden and Fort Steele, which has enjoyed the benefit of an agent since
December, 1914. A modest little-
portable depot, a box car on the
groupd, has done duty all these
years but with the proposed opening of the Banff-Windermere road
•n the thirtieth of June, it is no
doubt thought that it is time the
old box car took a move.
Ottawa.—The Canadian National
Parku Branch of thc Department of
the Interior is commencing thc construction of a hydro-eleclrie generating station in Cascade creek in
Banff National Park to supply light
and power for the town of Banff,
Alberta. The dam at the outlet of
Lake Minnewanka constructed in
1912 to provide storage facilities,
will be utilized and will ensure a
steady flow of water for power purposes without further impairing the
■cenic attractions of th* locality.
Electric power for Banff is at present obtained from the steam plant/
of the Bankhead Mines. The work
will be undertaken by day labor.

Way subway for the handling of
local freight instead of the end nearest the city subway dock as was ths
with the old shed. It has been
decided that the new arrangement
will be more satisfactory to company officials and to concerns having business with them.
Discussing the new shed to-day,
D. C. Chisholm, division superintendent, said that the new structure
would be of frame construction very
much like the shed it will replace,
aside from the fire walls and the
concrete wharf.
A new textile fiber discovered by Sir Henry Weckham,
a pioneer of the plantation

Winnipeg.—Seven thousand cars
of grain have been loaded between
September 1, 1922, and Feb. 1, 192.1,
for the western coast by the Canadian Pacific Railway. This represents 10,234,000 bushels of grain for
export from Vancouver. The shipments comprised 6,175 cars of wheat,
162 oats, 16 barley and 50 rye. Exports from the western coast were
destined as follows; The Orient,
896,880 bushels, and the United
Kingdom 987,905 bushels. As at
January 31, there were 900,000
bushels of Canadian Pacific grain
in the elevator at Vancouver and 500
cars in transit carrying 735,000
bushels of wheat. The present movement west is averaging 25 cars a
day.
Fort William.—The contract for
the construction of a building to replace number five freight shed, was
awarded by Canadian Pacific Railway officials to the Ct ' T-Hall-
Aldinger Company, of Winnipeg. It
provides for two fire walls which
will divide the new structure into
three compartments.
The new dock along the new shed
will be of concrete. It is the present

"HAD A NARROW
ESCAPE"
"I never  realized until   a  few
months  ago  how risky  it  is  to
neglect    a  cold  in  the  chest.    I
have always had such good health,
that a cold either in the head or
cheat,    while   unpleasant,    never
gave mo any worry.    Outside an
occasional cold, I had never known
what it was to be laid up even
for  a day   in   all  my   life, until
laat December.    One afternoon  I
got a chill  and no   matter   how
dose I got to the stove, I couldn't
■seam   to   r-ct warm.     This   chill
was   followed   by a   cold   in my
chest.   As usual I neglected it and
it kept getting worse  and worse.
Finally I  had  to  go to bed and
send  for the  doctor.    His  examination   showed that I had pneumonia and a bad case at that.   By
careful nursing on the part of my
husband,   my   children   and some
friends,     I    managed     to     pull
through, but thc doctor told me I
had a narrow shave.    And here's
where my troubles began.   While
1 was now out of danger, I was
anything   but   well.    I   was still
very weak from the effects of the
pneumonia.   Although  I had  lots'
of   life   and   energy   before   my
sickness, I was now worn out and
tired all the time.    I slept fairly
well, more because I was exhausted.    But  my sleep didn't refresh
me   because,   while   I    appeared
to    be     asleep,    I    was    conscious   most of the time of  what
went on around me.   Although all
kinds    of    tempting   dishes were
prepared for me, I had no relish
for food.    This sickness  had  already undermined  my  health  t»
such   an   extent   that   I   was   a
living skeleton.   I    was    getting
dipcouraged    as    nothing I    took
seemed   to  do  me any  good.    'I
wonder if  Camol wouldn't build
you up,' a friend said one day, 'it
did  me a world  of good,  I  was
completely run down and you can
sec  for  yourself how well I look
today.    Why don't  you try it  ?
Thanks to this friend's  advice I
am   in  perfect health  again,  as
healthy   and   as full of life and
vitality as I have ever been."

The Objoots nf this Institution, for which incorporation was recently ob
tained, are: "LVi provide a Hume and Refuge for Baby and Infant Blind; to
provide free .Scientific Care, Training and Maintenance; to Save the Lives of
even a few of tlio many of Hudi unfortunates, who, for the lack of such sor-
vice, perish every yoar; and to return these little ones to thoir parents, at
sohool age with normal, healthy bodies and sound minds."
This is a large and greatly needed Child Welfare Service. Careful enquiry
at the Government offices in tho verious provinces reveals the fact that theije
aro at the presaut time nearly 250 Infant Blind iu the Dominion. Nothiisjg;
has yet been done for those helpless little ones. Iu the United .States, 16
years ago, tlio first homo was opened in 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 ono iu the British Empire. Let us have the
bSECOND in Canada. To reach this worthy end money is urgently required.
Fifty Thousand Dollars is the present objective of the Boajd. 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 sliould be made
payable to the Cauadiiun Blind Babies Home Association. All remittances

The Value of
Orcnard Spraying
Spraying is still too generally re »
garded as an operation that may frequently be dispensed witb. But before so deciding it will be as well to
remember that the orchards having no troubles are getting fewer
every year. The maxim, "Spray
only if you have anything to spray
for," is no longer a safe one. It is
repeatedly the caie that a perfectly
clean orchard one year suffers from
bad infections of various troubles,
both insect and fungus, Ihe next
spring. Production must be saleable
production, uot that of low grade,
diseased or worrastung fruit.
By no spraying it is possible to

Acie cost of production might be

the land during the early season.
During an acute water shortage one

tbe season. Tbis wili greatly jeduce

this prevents tbe stand of vetch from
being partly covered later when furrows are plouged.
Every effort should be made to
maintain the productive state of

sprasing should be carefully considered before deciding to quit it.
Tbe revised spray calendar will

THE tale ol an heroic rescue at
sea and of a desperate battle
with the cltments to keep a sinking
vessel afloai until help arrived was
told when the Canadian Pacific
steamship "Empress of Scotland"
arrived at New Vork recently with
Captain Aaron Kearley and hie crew
of five of the tiny schooner "Clin-
tonia" of Lunenburg, N.S.
It was an epic of courage on the
part of th< sturdy Nova Scotiane and
of the coolness and heroism of British seamiuiship in which Chief Officer E. W. McMurray, and Captain
Kearley of the lost schooner played
the leading roles.
Totally helpless in a terrific storm,
the "Clii:Ionia" bound for Halifax
from Fori une Bay, Newfoundland,
was in •*, sinking condition when it
was sigh*"d by the "Empress." Captain Jamrs Gillies, the liner's commander, was compelled to abandon
the lifebjat in which the schooner's
crew was rescued because of the
heavy teas.
"For three days and nights we had
manned the pumps, Captain Kearley
*aid, "we had given up hope and
were completely exhausted when we
sighted the steamer. We hoisted the
distress signal, but even   after    we
were sighted, did not believe that we
could be saved before my ship sank.
I cannot lay too much of the bravery
of Officer McMurray and his men
when they took a desperate chance
in effecting our rescue."
A volunteer crew manned the lifeboat, and several oars were broken
by the waves when Officer McMurray put off for the Clintonia.
"The schooner was sinking rapidly as we rowed for it," McMurray
said. "The crew were clinging to
ropes, and every wave broke over the
tiny craft. The sea was so heavy
that we could not go alongside, and
the men were compelled to jump into the swirling waves. We had some
trouble in picking them up, and all
were utterly exhausted and half
dead from cold when we got them in
the lifeboat.
It was a ti-cklisrh task getting back
to the "Emprsiss," he continued. "We
finally got alongside, but it was so
rough we had to abandon the lifeboat. It wae badly crushed before
we could aM get aboard, and was in
splinters a few minutes later." The
Clintonla meanwhile had sunk.
^ The crew   of  the   schooner    lost
get on shore when they arrived.
None suffered any ill effects from the
three days of exposure.
Chief Officer McMurray, hie brother officers said, has play the part
of the rescuer in several sea disasters, and received a silver loving cop
from the Mikado of Japan for having rescued the crew of a wrecked
Japanese steamship in the China Sea
several years ago. Other officers of
the liner also have been decorated
for bravery, both in war and peace.
First Officer Ronald Stewart received the Victoria Cross for sinking a
German submarine while commander
of a "mystery ship."    i
Captain Gillies is Commander of
the Order of the British Empire.
All of the wrecked schooner's crew
are under 30 years of age and unmarried, Capt. Kearley said. They
were given $400 by the passengers
of the steamer. The great Canadian
Pacific liner is now cruuing the Mediterranean carrying a large party of
tourists from all over the United
States and Canada. In the early
summer she will be back upon the
regular Canadian Pacific trans-Atlantic route. The remarkable photoe o'
