Vernon, -May 8.—That tbe -problem banded tbe committee of direction is not tbe only problem facing
trait growers, was the comment of
F. .M. Black, chairman of the com-
mlttee of direotlon under the Produce Marketing act, at a meeting
held in tbe board of treade rooms on
Thursday evening. Mr. Black, Hon.
E.J). Barrow; minister of agriculture,
and J. A. Grant, prairie markets com
missioner, had listened to reports
end arguments on codling moth, and
the varieties of fruits best suited to
the Vernon district, with suggestions
for new plantings, and for replanting^ The discussion; bristled with
"phases more or less new and technical, and was somewhat ln the nature
of a liberal education for a man from
the prairie. Mr. Black expressed
pleasure at the opportunity afforded
of meeting bo manye men and assured them that he was no stranger
to the Okanagan valley. He had not
anticipated being called upon tn
apea«t as his visit was somewhat
unofficial. i
President H. Pout asked 'Hon. E.
D. Barrow, minister of agriculture,
to Introduce M.r Black. Mr. Barrow
rebiewed ln brief fashion the tseps
that led up to the demand for legislation, the appointment of the two
memlbers on the committeeof direction by the Associated and the mile
pendents, and the selection of F. <M.
Black as chairman by the government. The gobernment'g -Choice appears to have met a large measure
of popular approval, as he. had heard
nothing but favorable comment, said
Mr. Barrow. Mr. Black, he said, bas
an established reputation and hlc acceptance ot tbe position has added
prestige. (Mr. Barrow asked the
growers to give to Mr. Black their
hearty support
The scientific way the growers
were tackling their problems was
praised by 'Mr. Black, who expressed
the opinion that ethe marketing problem will lend itself to sympathetic
study. |He did not want the people
to have the impression that he is &
■tranter to British Coiufbia. .He
cafe to this problnce in 1891 and
lived here for 18 yean. The past
11 yeara he had spent on the prairies. Thus he had some infomation
as to the situation from the producers foiewpolnt and from that of tbe
dweller on the plains. The farket-
ing problem, he said, bas to do with'
-tftrlbutlon on the prairies and in
other parts of the globe,
"just that day he had the privilege
ot meeting two men from Holland
who were in Vernon for the purpose
of discussing th marketing of iG-kan
agan apples in France, Belgium,
Switzerland and other European
countries, exclusibe ot Germany,
where there is an especially adverse
That he was not convinced tbat
tbe prairie market had been explored to its fullest extent, wss the
gtatentent of Mr. eBlack. He said
Saskatchewan and Albeerta are hungry for fruit, The climatic condition! are such as to create a demand
for fr lt that sbould be met to the
fullest degree. The functions of the
committee is to give a square deal
to consumer and to the grower. It
people on the prairies realize they
oan get good, .hlkhly colored apples-
tor the red apple has an appeal tbe
green apple hae not—they will be
satisfied. Efforts will be made to ex
tend the appfoach made to the con-
stumer, and If prices can be established that will be fair to the growers and the consumers, it is possible
to extent) the market considerably.
Mr. Black-said the problems which
the prairie farmer has to overcome
I* somewhat similar to the one the
committee -Is engaged upon and lf. it
lay within his power to bring to the
lag of the plight the fruit grower ls
in, elt wonld be a pleasure. The
farmer on the plains wants more
than a bare existence, so does the
grower in the valley.

Will You Mate
Northwestern Australia
How many personsof one's acquaintance could become conrapetent
airulane pilots? The average Individual may learn to drive a motor car
in a tolerable manner; but would
eben 5 per cent of the population,
aided by the beat tuition, learn to
control the flight of an airplane at
tbe present time?
The air is such an unstable medium that flying can scarcely be a popular art for many decades. An intending flyer must possesh the bird-
man's physique and temperament;
he needs alertness and resourotful-
ness of mind.
Delicacy of touch, which gives the
pilot complete mastery of his airplane and conveys the "feel" of the
machine to his brain in time to correct a sideslip or a "stall," ls the
gift of nature alone. So are eyes
that can judge speed and distance
with unerring accuracy. By the
latter qualifications tht novice learns
both to "take-og" hla machine and to
make a safe landing.
Navigation is a science Before
a cross-country flight the pilot ascertains the velocity of the wind. He
then -. calculates Its approximate
strength at the height at which he
has chosen for his flleght, say 2000
feet. The velocity at tbls height is
Just about double the velocity of the
wind on the ground.. It also blows
in a slightly different direction and
the pilot must allow for this "veering angle." He then obtains the
mean compass bearing to bis objective after adding or deducting the
angle -which represents the force of
the wind. e      e
Clouds nvelop an airplane in a
steamy fog. They should be# dodged
wben posslbl, because the pilot cannot trust his sense of 'balance—the
"bumps" upset that. He depends
upon the Indicating Instruments
alone. Hall or rain is very unvleas-
ant and may damage the propeller.
When the sun Is low on the frontal
horizon the vilot finds it very hard'
to see.
Year by year difficulties are surmounted. Perhaps designers, will
evole a machine which has the self-
righting properties ofe a lifeboat.
Safety at slow speed must be obtained and the controls-must be simplified before tbe man in the street can
expect to fly.
A motorist may commit many glaring mistakes during his apprenticeship, but the learner in an airplane
knows that his fint slight error may
be his last
But ft won't be long before airplanes will' be as common as automobiles.

Commercially, northwestern Australia burst out of obscurity during
the last generation or so and became
an Important region on the map, for
it tc the center of the world's mother-
of-pearl Industry and a considerable
contributor to the store of pearls and
gold. Eleven imlllon dollars' worth
of mother-of-pearl shell and three mil
lion dollara' worth of pearls were
won, in a period of ten years, from
the waters of the Indian ocean.whlch
lap its shores.
The country is still known chitefly,
however, by the products which it
sends out. Fifty odd year ago there
was not a single European settlement on this vast section of Aastra-
Ua, and even now the census returns give a population of less than
7000 souls, exclusive* of aborigines
IFrom 1628 the northwest coaht was
visited by many bold mariners, including DeWitt and William Dam-
pier, but it was not until 1837 that
the first definite attempt at exploration was undertaken by Capt. George
Grey—an attempt that was only partly successful. The first pastoral settlement In the Roebuck bay district
was estaliahed In 1863, and fn 1879
Alexander Forrest made his memorable trip, via Beagle bay and' King
hound, to the Fitzroy and Margaret
In 1882 Sir John Forrest of Bun-
bury, the noted Australian explorer
and statesman, made an Investigation in this division, and shortly afterward Hall and Slattery discovered
the flrst payable gold ln the country
at Hall's creek. Then definite settlement of this great tract of country really began.
'. The latest expedition for the exploration of the region was amde
within th past few years ln a small
hchooner, the Culwulla, from Broome
A run of 90 miles along the coast
brought the party to Ledge poiht,
where a visit was made to Beagle
Bay Mission station, established thirty years ago by a Spanish religious
order. There are 250 blacks permanently at the station, while tribes
from the outlying' districts make it
occasional visith. Tbis mission controls -10,000 acres of land, has several thousand cattle and hundreds of
goats and pigs. Coconut and date
palms flourish and water is obtained
by sinking deep wells.
North of Beagle Bay is Chilli creek
where there is a 28-foot tide. At the
ebb tbe waters recede nearly seven
miles. Under the mangrove trees
which fringe the coast there are millions of crabs. Some are bright blue,
others scarlet—all about tbe size of
a 50-cent piece—while large crabs,
tbree inches long and of a yellow
color, simply swarm over the sand.
The fisheries wealth of tbls coast
is remarkable, every inlet and river
teeming with valuable edible fish. At
Broome a hystem of catching flsh by
means of traps its in vogue. The trasp
are made of wire netting, witb wings
which form a race. The tide does -the
work. The traps are covered at high
tide, and when the water rushes out,
flsh are swept into tbe wire, being
caught by the ton.
At Tyra island, which ts reached
through wild and swirling tides, M.
d'Antoine, a Frenchman, has lived
among the blacks for more tban thirty years. He owns a lugger, livoh
in a bark hut, and has a retinue of
some 50 blacks—men, women and
children. As a typical beachcomber,
he ls far from being the picturesque
figure that many writers about tropl
cal Islands and isles describe
At the eentrance to King sound
there ls a group of Islands known as
the Buccaneer archipelago. On Sunday island, one of the group, Sydney,
Hadley has a mission station, where
he utilizes the (black gins (women)
for collecting the trochus shell,which
he ships away. It Is from the trochus shell that so-called peart buttons are made—ah Industry carried
on in France and Japan.
North, from the sound lies the
"Graveyards'' the bete noire of the
skippers of the coast, where tiny islands and dangerous reefs are sprinkled all over the sea. Captain Johnson took the Culwulla through the
Graveyard and passed safely to the
-more tricky Whirlpool pass, whore
the little craft made tbree complete
turns ln the comparatively narrow
channel a little more than four miles
in length. At times this pass is quite
-innavigable. Its banks are more than
400 feet high in places, very rocky,
and run sheer down. Tbe rihe and
fall of the tide here Is 35 feet
At Dugong bay, an Inlet in Collier
bay, several splendid specimens of
the sea cow or dugong were captured
Nineteen t~.-z..-,,.t* men's families,
sent out to Canada by the British
Empire Service League, arrived at
Quebec recently-.on the CanadUt

persons, have been carefully -elected and have been given training at

is not always carried out with success. This mamimal ih believed by
some to have suggested the idea of
the mermaid, because it holds its!
young to its breast and suckles it.'
Tbe flesh has a flavor akin to both
beef and pork, and it is eaten by
Whies and blacks alike. The meat
is 'used like bacon, fine leather is
made from the hide, and the oil obtained from the animal possesses
valuable medicinal qualities, having
extraordinary powers of penetration,

fully twelve feet in length and weighed nearly 600 eepounds.
Butcher Inlet provides another remarkable Illustration of the power
of tbe tide on the northwest coast, as
50 miles inland the rise and fall Is 18
feet, while at the entrance the fluctuation is 30 feet.
Montgomery island is one of several small bits of land dotted among
the dangerous coral reefs which
strew the coast for miles north of
HButcher inlet. On the inland the
blacks are noted for the remarkable
way they ornaemnt their bodies by
means of cicatruces. Their markings are said to be tbe most unusual
ln Australia. The skin is cut with a
sharp shell, and mlud, obtained from
around the roots ot the mangrove
scrub which grows ln the salt water.

thus, and each man carries his visiting card on his body,

exports from Australia had probably reached a record figure.

New Westminster, May 6.—A gold
mine believed to exist in the practicality -unexplored Pitt Lake mountain, the location of which was kept
a secret by a former Indian chief of
a Froser valley tribe, will again lure
R. A. ("Doc") Brown of Grand Forks,
veteran British Columgia prospector,
on a trip into the rugged regions beyond Pitt Lake glacier. (
Provincial Constable G. F. Elliott,
who rescued the veteran prospector
last fall in a dying condition ln a
shack near the glacier, has reveived
word from "Doc" that he will again
try to locate the mine.'
"Doc" Brown was found by the
rescue party suffering from frozen
feet and was carried -on a stretcher,

A chart purpeorting to show tbe
location of the gold mine was presented to "Doc" Brown by the dying
Indian chief, whom he had befriended, Brown declares.
President Coolldge's natal State,
Vermont, has been brought vividly to
the attention of the Middle West, Ontario and Quebec by a special train,
known as the Vermont Maple Sugar
Special, which has been touring the
western states and which visited
Ontario and Quebec in the latter
part of April, carrying special exhibit of Vermont products and also
a car of Canadian Pacific exhibits.
Governor John E. Weeks, Vermont's
chief executive, and Mrs. Weeks,
together with his staff, the United
States Senator for Vermont, and
many other State legislators and
representatives of leading business
interests, were aboard the train
during its extended tour.
In the long run, prosperity depends

Sidelights on the Chinese situation were thrown by travellers from

Cravath, general counsel of the Missouri Pacific Railroad; and Colonel
R. B. Worgan, of the Indian army,
who had joined the trip at Madras.

Victoria, May 6.—Inspection of
imported and exported horticultural
and field products ls dealt with in
tbe report of the chief inspector, W.
H. Lyne, made public today by Hon.
E. D. Barrow.
The inspection branch of the department of agriculture Is perhaps
little known to the farmers of the
province ln general, but upon the
efficiency and thoroughness of the
officials depends the freedom of
growers from ibtrodeuction from foreign countrlees of Insect nests and
diseases attacking fruit- and vegeta-
crops grown in British Columbia.
In addition to the regular staff in
the office oef the chief Inspector at
Vancouver, part of the n/fleers were
engaged at all ports of entry through
out tbe provlnct, tbe report shows,
Prior to September 1, 1926. These
were chlefley customs officers, employed by tbe provincial authorities
under permission of the department
of customs at Ittawa. With the withdrawal of s uch p emission an arrangement was made witb the customs department for the entry of
fruit and vegetobies at only such
ports as were provided wltb provincial inspectors apart from the customs officers.
The countries of origin of imported fruits and vegetables are detailed
in the report, which shows the imports to be as follows: Oranges
and rice from Japan; oranges.grape-
fruit, .peanuts, yams, taro and rice
rice from China; walnuts and corn
from Manchuria; rice from Singapore; bananas, pineapples, cocoanuts
and yams from Fiji islands; oranges,
lemons, grapes and onions from Australia; bananas and pineapples from
Hawaiian Islands; banana, pineapples, limes, nuts and corn from! South
America; lemons and nuts from
Italy; grapes and nuts from Spain;
Ars and dates from Turkey.
Owing to the Britlah Columbia seaports being the first line of defense
against the numerous plant pests
and diseases prevalent tn various
parts of the world, a sharp lookout Is
maintained, the chief inspector ex.
plains .All manifests of ships arriving from foreign countries are carefully checked by the inspector's staff
of quarantine officers. Any products
liable to carry serious Insect pest,
fungus or bacterial disease are held
.for inspection. A quarantine officer
Is within convenient call during the
inspection of passengers' baggage
by the customs officers, who are Instructed to report to him any plant
products they find.
In the event of rice, corn, peas, '
beans, peanuts, etc., arriving badly
infested with moth, beetle or weevil,
tbe consignee is gievn the option to
fumigate or ship out of the copntry.
Of the pests Infesting imported
storage products the two specfes ol
Brnchus weevil attacking peas and
beans .are most important. These
particular insects will remain in -the
product during tbe storage period
and the next season's crop Is infested by the pest being carried to tho
field at the time the seed Is planted.
For tbat reason hundreds of tons of
peas and eans from the United
States, eastern Canada and JJapan
have been fumigated at Vancouver.
Trees, shrubs, plants and bulbs are
all included in tbe term "nusery
stock"and must come to Vancouver
for inspection, and certain trees and
shrubs for fumigation, unless a permit has bcen obtained by the consignee to have a particular shipment
Inspected at some other point in tbe
province. The report states, so far
the permit referred to is confined to
greenhouse and herbaceous plants,
including bulbs, from other parts of
Canada, and to outdoor trees and
shrubs from Alberta, Saskatchewan
or Manitobe. (That referring to treeh
and shrubs is limited to residents* in
the East Kootenay district, in which
case arrangements were made in
1925 to have the stock inspected at
Permission to inspect greenhouse
plants and bulbs at points other than
Vancouver wah granted several years
ago, but It has not always been convenient to carry It out. During the
latter part of 1926 It was decided to
arrange for systematic Inspection at
certain points In the province where
It would be most convenient for the
district horticulturist or field inspector to do the work.

that cancer is caused by variant*! articles of diet has little
to sustain it," Dr. Evans writes in an artiicle in Liberty.

First came the petitions, issued by an influential faction of the Conservative party in Victoria. These have
been liberally signed. What do they ahk? Will Mr. Bowser, please, return to public life and contest a seat In Victoria at the next provincial gteneral election? Does this

Victoria already has honored Mr. Bowser with a public
reception. All sorts of political music was dispensed for
his especial benefit. His supporters did not even wait
for Dr. Tolmie to return ln order that be -might participate
ln this love feaht.   Is not this significant? Why the hurry?
Vancouver is about ti follow Victoria's example. In
fact, it looks as If it is going to be a competition between
tbe two oities as to which shall have Mr. Bowser as a
candidate at the next general election.
All these developments follow implications that all ls
not well within the inner councils of the party, definite
statements that all ih well, and still further inferences
that party scepti'ecs heave "spoken out of their turn."
Why was it necessary for tthe chairman of the Conservative citizens' committee, the organization responsible for
the reception to Mr. Bowser in Victoria, to point out ih a
communication to the -press that "so far as the members
of thlh committee is concerned there ls no disloyalty to
Dr. Tolmie; but tt Is felt that the doctor should have supporting him in the legislature a real fighting force."
Anti-Tolmiieites, of course, read this with their tonpues
in their cheeks and ask how an ex-premier could go back
to the house as a private member and serve under an Op
position leader with only moderate parliamentary experience.
Still teb interested spectator asks what ih behind the
"Brlng-Bowser-Back" movement except a serious scrap
ln the party ranks?
Poems From EasternLands
The long spring day is o'er, and dark despond
My heart Invades, and lets the tears run down,
As 'all alone 1 stand, when from beyond
The mount our heav'n-sent monarch's throne doth crown.
There breathes the twilight wind and turns my sleeve.
Ah, gentle breeze! to turn, home to return,
Is all my prayer; I cannot cease to grieve
On this long toilsome road; I burn, I (burn!   .
Yes! tbe poor heart I used to think so brave
Is all afire, though none the flame may see
Like to the salt-kilns there by Taunu's wave,
Where toll the fisher-maidens wearily.

I flie permit Ib granted, the consignee is provided with an official

moral effect of the act ln deterring
importation of eggs from foreign
From the United States 80 caseh j
of e8gs wewe. reported as being imported for consumption in Vancouver. All of these eggs were broken
from the shell before being distributed to the trade, mostly to batteries.
A few odd cases were imported by
private parties for setting purposes
and an occahlonal case for private
use in logging camps..
A shipment of 25 cases to Prince
Rupert was refused by the consignee
nnd returned to Seattle. For ship
stores mi ocean passengers steamers
":!5 caseh arrived in Vancouver and
were taken out of bond without be-
coming subject to the act.
Out of 3000 cases of Chinese frozen canned eggs arriving during 1920
in Vancouver, 1100 cases went
through to Toronto and the baltnce
of the shipment was placed in storage in the warehouse of the Vancouver Ice and Cold Storage company,
where tliey havo remained since July
12th ot last year.
There also arrived in tho province

egg encased in mud for preservation.
They are used exclusively by the

ed from the figures  .quot d  In.  the

apples  and  crabappl s, 41,164  boxes

prunes, 120,080 boxes of peaches, 227-
419 boxes of California oranges, 560,-
555  boxeh  of Japanea    oranges   (of
which  344,600 boxes  were for ship-'
ment to points east of British Columbia), 16,425 tons of rice, 21,981 tons
of corn..
'     In addition to the regular work of
inspecting imports, th report indicates, it Is sometimes necessary to
fumigate shipments, for which pur-
pohe an up-to-date plant has be n
establlhed in Vancouver, under the
joint action of the federal and provincial  departments of agriculture.
Some estimate ma-/ be made of the
quantity of peanuts consumed in this
country wh n it Is noted that the
schedules to the report show that
157 tons of peanuts were fumigated
in addition to 1643 tons which were
