Kootenay Hive Case
for Wintering Bees
Possibly no phase of agriculture
has advanced so rapidly as that of
beekeeping. In many lines of farm
ing our methods are much the same
as tbey were a hundred years ago.
With oeekeeping there haB been a
great evolution, and today utensils
ami methods are standardised
throughout tbe whole country. Beekeepers, however, are constantly on
the oulook for new and still better
methods for carrying on, aud io the
Kootenay hive case there is a form
of winter and summer protection
that posaessis more virtues aud less
faults than many of the methods
now in vogue.
The Kootenay hive case is an im
provement on   the double   walled
hive. It bas been introduced io tbe
form of a permanent hive case, and
is made to take the ten-frame bive.
There is a tbree-incb space all
around the brood ohambet and supers. Up to the top of the brood
chamber it is kept permanently
packed with moss or planer shavings
tbe year round. This, is oovered witb
small pieces of wood to prevent the
moss from falling into the bive
when open. Beneath tbe floor of the
brood chamber Inere is also a tbree
inch space packed with moss.
The stories, or "lifts," are all alike,
and, as supers are added extra lifts
ars put on. The cover is similar to
the ordinary cover, but is made
ihree-eightbs of an inch larger all
around tban the top of tbe case
wbile small triangular blocks nailed
in each inside corner raise it snd en
sure ventilation. This opening also
affords a means of escape for bees
tbat may bave become entrapped
while working over tbe hive.
To pack for winter all tbat ie nee--
essary is to bave one lift dbove the
brood chamber packed with moss or
planer shavings. To facilitate the
packing we have pillows made from
moss and gunny sacks just tbe s iz
of tbe atory or lift. Tbe cover is then
added and the bees are packed for
tbe winter. The only attention required is to keep tbe entrance^ cleared of dead bees.
Tbe bees have more winter protection in tbis case than in the
double walled hive, while tbe temperature in tbe hive is coolor and
more uniform in summer. There is
not tbe trouble of packing in tbe
fall and unpacking in the spring as
io the case of tbe ordinary double-
walled hive or the Ontario wintering case. If is less expensive than
the double-walled hive, as it is constructed largely from shiplep. The
bees come tbrough tbe winter in
good shade and commence work
early in the spring. Beekeepers
would be well advised to give it a
trial, as it has many exce'lent features.
Municipalities Declined to
Accept Such an Unpopular Charge — Premier
Makes Announcement
Victoria, Nov. 23.—The government has dropped its proposals for
additional taxation on a personal
property basis. Tbe whole soheme
for municipal aid in the way of
funds went tnto the dieoard tbis af
ternoon. In tbe meantime, the present personal property tax, as collected for several ""years past, will
continue to be imposed and payable
to the government.
That tbe new personal property
taxation jb "off" was announced by
tbe premier. A meeting or caucus
was held this afternoon before the
regular session of the house. Follow
ing tbis gathering, Hon. John Oliver told a press representative tbat
tbe government had decided not to
proceed with the plan to thus pro
vide more funds for the municipali

of Sherill W. Iograham, who had
been missing for several days while

Sunday last near Trail with a bullet bole in bis forehead. The coroner's jury returned a verdict of accidental death, and the remains were
buried at Trail yesterday. A sister
of Ingrabam was formerly employed
as a nurse at the Grand Forks hospital.

Tariff Question Presented
From Federal Administration's Viewpoint by
J. A. MacKelvie
An audience of moderate size
gathered in the Empress theate: on
Tuesday evening to bear J, A. MacKelvie, government candidate for
Yale in the Dominion elections. He
was given an attentive hearing, but
enthusiasm was noticeably lacking.
Dr. Kingston presided, and in a
brief speech introduced the speaker
of the evening.
Mr. MacKelvie's principal subject
was tbe tariff iaaue. His arguments
in favor of a high protecti ve tariff
were tbose that bave been advanced
by government speakers and Conservative newspapers since tbe beginning of tbe present   ampaign.
Mr. MacKelvie re-echoed tbe absurd olaim recently make by government organs, tbat to Hon. Arthur Meighen was dne the oonor of
originating and convening of the
great Washington disarmament conference.
The speaker reminded the ladies
that the Conservative government
bad given them tbe federal franchise; but he forgot to mention tbat
a Liberal administraiion at Victoria
had firat given them tbe provincial
franchise in British Columbia,
On tbe subject of taxation, be said
a great deal bad ben said about tbe
government favoring tbe big interests. Every knew bow he felt about
having to pay taxes. In tbe matter
of income taxes the big interests were
bit the hardest, and he asked whether the Meighen government favored
the big interests by making tbem
pay the greater share of the war
The speaker's ouly reference to
the Liberal leader was, tbat Mr.
King bad gone to Mantreal, where
he bad seen some empty sh?lls on a
dock and had been shell shocked.
A great deal of tbe speaker's
time was devoted to an explanation
of the national railway problem. He
admitted that the question was serious, but shifted the responsibility
for the present situation by saying
that it was a legacy handed down
by the Laurier administration.
The meeting closed with the singing of the national anthem.

Victoria, Nov.' 24.—In keeping
with tbe report published two weeks
ago, it is understood tbat drastic
cute in tbe estimates are being considered in the legislature. The statement was made early tbis month
tbat members of tbe government in
caucus had demanded a decrease in
tbe proposed expenditures. This
has now been agreed to.
However, it is also certain tbat
large supplementary votes will bave
to be provided for, owing to tbe un
employment situation, the floods
along the P.G.E. and the province's
share in tbe Dominion government
scheme of municipal unemployment
When the Neelands resolution
asking tbat the house go into committee to consider the unemployment question was disposed of, Pre
mier Oliver promised a substantial
vote for tbis purpose. So tbe amount
aaved by paring tbe estimates, aa
provided for in tbe budget, will
probably be equalled by tbe new
supplementary votes. Tbis will
mean tbat the estimated expenditures for British Columbia for tbe
coming fiscal year will be over $20,-
Feeding Stuffs
There has recently been issued
from tbe division of chemistry, of
the Dominion experimental farms,
Ottawa, a bulletin, No. 47, entitled
"Commercial Feeding Stuffs."
This bulletin coot ins tbe chemical analyses and misroscopical findings of ovej four hundred samples
of feeding stuffs recently collected
throughout the Dominion and includes a consideration of all the
more important milling by-products
and compounded feeds now found
on the Canadian market,.
Tbe analytical data bave furnished tbe basis for the valuation of
these feeds from the nutritive standpoint and the micros iopical findings
—a new feature in work of thia
character—indicate the precence or

Washington, Nov. 21.—The week

events, but generally tbe well-known
Indian summer features will prevail
Tbat week will be midway between
two severe storm periods, one centering on November 14, the otber on

reach eastern sections near November 30.
Indications of an excessively cold
winter are not yet in sight. December will average warmer than ueua
very warm on the weeks centering
on Deoember 1, 12 and 28; cooler
tban usual on tbe weeks centering
on 6, 19 and January 2. Less tban
usual precipitation. Most rain or

Deputation From Vancouver Makes Appreciative Statement to Premier Oliver
Victoria, Nov. 24.—Expressing
their appreciation of Premier Oliver
and the government in leaving tbe
personal property tax as it has stood
in tbe past, a Vancouver delegation
waited upon tbe government leader
this morning.
The visitors said tbey felt lhat the
action taken yeBterday in dropping
new tax proposals would result in
the general stimulation of industry
aud would work out as the beat solution of a difficult problem.
J. J. Warren, preaident, and W.
M. Archibald, of the Consolidated
Mining <fe Smelling company, of
Trail, were in Princeton last week.
The Star says that negotiations
fraught with great possibilities for
that town and district are under
way, but no definite Information is
yet available.
Victoria, Nov. 19.—E. C. Henniger, Liberal member for Qrand
Forks, made a few brief remarks in
the legislature Friday afternoon. He
agreed wilh the member for New«
castle that tbe big university grant
was being used mostly to educate
tbo sons and daughters of tbe rioh.
He also thought tnat the government was providing too much service. A'oriey was being spent mucb
faster than people were being
brought into tbe province.
Mr. Henniger criticized the fin"
ance minister's proposal to increase
the automobile tax. He deprecated
tbe frequent references to the P.G.
V,., a subject wbich made him
"sick," he added.
"In fact, it reminds me of tbe old
farmer wbo said a long prayer every
morning," he reminisced. "Finally,
the son of the soil deeded the hired
men were wasting too mucb time
over piayers; eo he had copies printed and pasted on the wall. Pointing
to the document one morning, he
said, 'Them's my sentiments.' So
it might well be with tbe tbe P.
G E."

The poor P.G.E. seems to be friendless.   I
has become quite fashionable for everybody to
crack jokes or shed tears at its expense.    The
C.P.R. had to run the same gauntlet when   it
was being built through the mountains.   Yet
there is not a person in British Columbia  today who would like to be without that railway. Twenty years from now prosperous communities along the P.G.E. may hold similar
views about that line. The thing to do now is
to complete the road and to fill the territory it
traverses with bona fide settlers.   When this
is done it will cease to bea drain on the public
treasury, and will become a revenue producer.
To abandon tha enterprise now  would  be a
crime.   Croaking   and   weak hearted efforts
have never achieved any great public undertaking, and they will not complete the P.G.E.
and put it on a paying basis.   To acoomplish
this requires persistency, perspicuity and  a
liberal amount of level-headed   management.!
Those"who throw uptheir hands when theymeet
anobstacle midway between the starting point
and the finishing post would be sure to make
a failure of the job.   We admire the provincial
government for its determination to carry  the
enterprise   to  a successful conclusion.    To
strengthen that determination it needs the approval of the people and of the members of its
own party instead of criticism.   Undoubtedly
a great deal of money has been wasted on  the
road since its inception, but fully as much, if
not more, has been wasted on public highways
during the past two decades.   No one has the
temerity advocate a stoppage of work on   the
public roads.

always be with us; that the world is incapable
of progressing through error, naturally look
upon the Washington disarmament conference
as a joke, and never miss an opportunity to
ridicule it. But fortunately the world moves.
Tbe majority of the people of all nations look
to that gathering for an immediate relief from
the present burden of taxation, and they see
in the program as laid down on the opening
day of the meeting a principle which is capable of being enlarged upon until the world is

As the German reparation payments begin
nflux of German goods into England attracts
tbe attention of those who watch trade balances. In August the imports of German iron
and steel into England rose by £73,046, and
the imports of dyestuffs went up £37,019. The
increases are not perhaps alarming in themselves, but they give the British economist
some uneasiness, since they come at a time
when British industry is so nearly flat on its
back. There is a good deal of apprehension
lest the flow of German goods will seriously
retard the recovery of business n the United
Kingdom. But if the Germans are to pay they
must sell goods wherewith to get the money;
and they can now undersell almost every other
nation in the world.
