a aeries of by-elections—hei I  successively or perhiijjs all on one day—
but tbere ia  no chance of a general
provincial election in British Oinm
bia tbis year, according to   » state
ment by Hon. John Oliver lod'iy,
"Iseeno reason why there rhould
be; the Liberal party is stronger in
British Columbia than ever before,'
said tbe premier, when asked re
garding tbe possibility of a general
contest.- Hon. Mr. Oliver added:
"I can not conceive for a moment
why there sbould be anything to
worry about. We were in deep
waters several times during tbe last
session, but the government is
stronger today thau it has been for
years I have noticed reports in tbe
papers recently to the effect tha
there would be a general election be t
fore the end of the year. That is not
true; we bave oar difficulties, but I
ban faced many difficult situations
.and am not worrying about the pres
eat situation."
Hon. Mr. Oliver's statement foi
lowed a special meeting of the cabinet called to discuss tbe proposed
resignation of Hon. Dr. King from
the provioci 1 government and bis
entrance into Dominion' politics as
minister of public works.
Following tbe cabinet meeting
Premier Oliver said that tbere would
be no announcement today as to
Dr. King. Nelth.rdid he care further to discuss the poliiical situation.
All matters pertaining to the welfare of tbe party will be discussed
at a conference to be held here on
January 23. This meeting will be
attended only by members of the
house. At tbe same time tbere is a
strong feeling In some Liberal or
ganizations that the time is ripe for
provincial convention. No such
gathering has been beld since 1907.
A number of Victoria organisatious
have gone on record in favor of a
convention. Under the constitution
of the provincial Liberal organization, wbere tbree local organizations
request a convention, this shall be
held. This, it is understood, is one
of tbe points in question wbicb tbe
premier discussed when in Vancou
ver with M. A. Macdonald, president
of the provincial organization.
But in view of the premier's state
ment today, relative to the coming
meeting on the 23rd inst., whatever
may be tbe ultimate decision rela
tive to a provincial party convention, this month's gathering can not
be considered in tbe nature of a
general party convention. It is ex
pected, however, that in addition to
the sitting members of the - house,
members of the provincial Liberal
executive will be present and, per
haps, prominent party heads, with
the idea of thoroughly canvassing tbe
whole situation.
Hon. Dr. King today issued the
following statement on federal af
"Hon. Maokenzie King's action in

For every colony of bees a beekeeper has, he snould have at leas

also have enough 10 frame hives

required they should be ordered
early, as most dealers allow a dis
count on early orders. These sup.
plies can be made up before spring,
When ordering hive bodies, supers,
etc., in large lots it is most economi
cal to purohase them in tbe flat in
crates of five. The material is all
cut to standard size and ready to
put together. If a beekeeper is
bandy witb tools and can obtain
good lumber it is very much cheap
er to make the hives, floor boards,
etc., at home, using a standard
hiveas a model. The frames, how
ever, are difficult lo make without
special machinery and should be obtained from a regular manufacturer,
Comb foundation can be ordered
early, but il is not advisable to put
it into frames before tbe spring,
This work should be done in a warm
room, as the wax is very brittle
when cold and is easily broken.
Broken combs, cappings, etc., can
be rendered early and the wax obtained manufactured into foundation for spring use. Any manufac
turers of bee supplies will convert
the wax into foundation at a reasonable charge.
All drawn comb sbould be care
fully protected from the ravishes of
.mice and wax moth dnring the winter, as tbey are one of the most valuable assets a beekeeper has. The
best method is to place tbe comb in
supers and to lier tbe supers one
above tbe other with a queen excluder beneath and another over the
top of the pile. This will prevent
damage from mice. To prevent
moulding and damage from wax

Vancouver, Jan. 11.—An aggressive policy of plant extensions and
improvements at Anyox and elsewhere is contemplated by the Granby Consolidated Mining, Smelting
and Power company, according to
H. S. Munro, general manager of
tbe company, who has just returned
from New York. Wbile in the east
Mr. Munro consulted with directors
of the company as to tbe program
for tbe ensuing year.
Copper prices are likely to hover
between 14c and 15c per piund for
the greater part of this year, in the
opinion of eastern copper men, Mr.
Munro states. The price is likely to
increase between now aod April or
May, but wben the big American
producers, whose plants have been
closed down for some months past,
get into their stride the market is
likely to sag slightly, competent observers think, he says. Tbe price
situation would be materially
changed by any unexpected large
orders being placed for copper, but
no auch orders are at present in
prospect, in his opinion.
Mr. Munro will return to Anyox
on Monday.

Next April Astronomers
Will Consider the Advisability of Scrapping
the Present Calendar
In April of this year astronomers
from all parts of the world, and representatives of almost every civilized
nation, will assemble in Rome to
consider the question of symplifying
the calendar, and agreeing, if possi
ble, upon a system wbich will pre
vent the dislocation of the days of
tbe week in relation to the days of
the month, which has been ths
necessary consequence of dividing
the 366 days of the year into weeks.
There have been many schemes
for reforming the calendar, but it
seems almost certain tbat the plan
proposed by Moses Cotsworth, of
Vancouver, will commend itself to
the conference as tbe most perfect
solution of what has for many years
past been a vexed problem. Mr.
Cotsworth's proposition is tbat the
year should be divided into thirteen
months of 28 days each, making
364 days in all. The 365th day he
would simply call New Year's day,
leaving it unaccounted as a day of
the month or week.
This being done, the days of tbe
week would, throughout the year,
and from year to year in perpetuity,
fall on fixed days of the month. All
Sundays, for example, would fall on
tae first, eighth, fifteenth and
twenty-second of th month; all
Mondays on the second, ninth, sixteenth and twenty-third, and so on.
The thirteenth month would be in-
teroalculated under some suitable
name. Mr. Cotsworth suggests "Sol"
—between June and July, and the
extra day required for leap year
would be assigned to some suitable
place in tbe year, without being
counted either as a day of tbe month
or a day of the week.
Id 1912 Mr. Cotswoith's scheme
was endorsed by tbe Royal Society
pf Canada, and by tbe Dominion
government, and was about to be
considered by tbe imperial authorities, when tbe war unfortunately put
a stop to all activities in that dire:
tion.   Astronomers, however, bave

Some of the balky reasoners are still attrib
uting the defeat of the three Liberal  candi
dates in Vancouver in the recent federal elec
tions to the unpopularity of the Oliver 3ov
ernment.   Let's take a look at the right angle
of the matter.   British Columbia's representation in the federal house before the election
was solidly Conservative. Now there are three
Liberals in the crowd.   Is it not more reasonable to attribute the rescne of these three
seats from the enemy to the popularity of the
Victoria government than it is to take the view
of disgruntled Tory newspapers   and  Tory
politicians who argue in the direction that a
crab crawls. All the silly talk in the world will
not do away with the fact that the Liberals of
British Columbia gained three members   in
the election.  The defeat of the Vancouver
candidates may have been due to their lack of
popularity, or to local issues.

Oliver this wee^ denying the rumors was
scarcely necessary to dispell all credancie in
them. The stories, however, were fanned
broadcast through tbe province, and lean office
seekeas imagined "that they could hear the
rustle of the turkey in the straw. To put an
end such tommyrot. the premier's denial was
timely. General elections are costly affairs,

A View of Vancouver Harbor, showing the C.P.R. Piers, the
dredges at work on the site of the new pier and a part of the
railway system.
It la hardly possible to conceive
of a subject which is of greater vital
Interest to the people of Canada,
than that of the recent activities
and the measures bfing taken for
the development of its great western port of Vancouver. Since the
removal of Government control over
some of our principal products, it is
becoming increasingly apparent to
everyone to what a great extent
the channels of our trade have become disrupted. The old routes of
trade, with their well ordered and
tegular demand are only partially
in existence to-day; the beneficial
, effects which those routes had on
the prosperity of Canada 'are no
longer so "Clearly apparent. New
sources of demand and supplement-
try outlets of our natural and manufactured prpduce are. an immediate
necessity, and the pressure of strong
'fonomic forces are gradually accumulating, which will direct the
commercial outlook of Canada, in a
i lessening degree to the iEast and
IBouth, and- to a great* fafent'•'towards Vancouver and the great
countries with whicb it , trades
;'Phis article will try to hying to the
conception of Canada, east of the
Rockies, the tremendous and cour
ageous efforts which are being made
to bring the port of Vancouver into
• ht. front rank of Pacific harbors; to
increase its attractiveness fof tho
world's shipping; to build up a permanent service of vessels to the rich
markets of the Pacific; to make it
in every way worthy of the Do
minion, whose foreign trade it st
strongly desires  to foster.
The Port of Vancouvei, if only on
account of the phenomenal rapidity
of its growth, is a remarkable tribute to western enterprise. Its
evolution in the short space of about
thirty years-"from a natural coastal
inlet to a centre Of shipping industry
with world-wide ramifications is ont
of the outstanding romances of mod
em commerce. .It cart claim to off et

Its strategical position for ad vane
Ing the foreign trade of Canada is
all that could be desired, while the
city itself is peopled with merchants
and 3hippei'fi'"iT'e*nftls"wrto know the
kets and their potentialities foi
trade.- They hear of tae success
which has followed the exploitation
of the markets of the' East by the
business men of the States, and tbey
look forward to the-time when Canadian interests will take their full
share- of the trade td be obtained
through these hitherto only partly
developed channels.
Up-to*the year 1918, all development work of the port was entirely
the reiult of private enterprise' only,
and such facilities as were available
for deep-sea shipping, had, up to
then, been provided to a large extent by the constructions erected by
the C. P. R. The Harbor Board of
Vancouver was then created by a
Government measure and strong financial support has been forthcoming
from the Government ever since, not
only to further the development of
the harbor, but also in connection
with its shipbuilding programme. It

part of the Government, the Harbor
Commissioners, tha C. P. R. and oth-

-     -     *  which will be 110 feet w«e.   In ad
the forefront of shipping affairs
The,numerous important naw undertakings are worthy of oonsidera
tion in detail. The C. P. R. is erecting a,new pier of the double deck
type, wl.ich will be 1,100 feet long
and 330'feet wide, and on.it will be
two sheds, each 110 feet wide and
iimning the full length of the pier
Al<. ng the outside of each shed there
will be two surface tracks, and four
lines of'depressed tracks In the centre. This, pier will be fitted with
the most modern and powerful cargo
handling equipment, and this together with the excellent facilities for
clearing freight on the railway will
■i.able a shib tb be "turned" in
record' tlhie. The dredging and filling for this pier are now completed,
o constructional work should be
well advanced by the end of 1921.
Messrs. J. Coughlan & Sons have
secured a contract, and work has already-commenced, oh the new Government Dry Dock which will be 750
feet long, sufficiently large to accommodate, the "Empress of Canada," the latest addition to the magnificent fleet of Vessels operated bv
the C. P. 0. S., which is 644 feet in
length' and haa a displacement of
22,000 tons. •
The Harbor Commission with the
help of a Government appropriation
of $6,000,000, have commenced work
on the new Ballantyne pier, and ex-
"ct to obtain completion within two
years. This pier tftll be 1.J00 feet
in  length,  and  340  feet  wide,  and
will -•vripf three sheds R0nfopf I
(te^uiremenU s4 these tax.off ma;-land ob* shed 400 feet long. aU of I
dition to a roadway for vehicles
there will be three railroad tracks
in the centre, and two tracks on
each of the outer sides. The plans
call for fireproof steel and concrete
construction throughout, and the installation of powerful travelling
electric cranes. The Harbor Board
are also now Inviting tenders for a
tugboat wharf, for which the. necessity, has long been felt.. They have
also under immediate ■ consideration
the provision of tanks fori storing
vegetable oils; the addition of.a fire-
boat, and the construction of coal
Since the port of Vancouver has
been able, up to now, to cope successfully with its increasing deep-
sea trade, and tbe large coastal business coming to and going from the
port, ft li obvious that these new
docks, huge warehouses, powerful
lifting devices and multiple tracks
for rolling stock, are capable of promoting a trade of a far greater volume than can be looked for from
established resources. The picture
which appeals most to the mind is
that of an excess of business, rather
than just enough; the prospect of
too little business is not to be
thought of. In the near future it
will require the whole-hearted and
united endeavors of our factories,
farms, forests, mines and fisheries
to produce the mildest form of congestion in tbe port of Vancouver.
The port of Vancouver iB already
well equipped to handle grain ship-
1 and C.P.O.S
ments and not very long ago the
first cargo of wheat pasfed through
the Government elevator into the
S.S. "Effingham" consigned to a
European port. This marked a momentous day in the history of the
port and great hopes are entertained
that a considerable trade will, in the
future, be obtained from the Western
Prairie- Provinces.
Tho possibility of building up a
foreign< export tnade in manufactured goods* as well as raw material
is gaining more attention in Canadian business circles daily; the attractiveness of the markets whioh
are,served by the port of Vancouver
must ultimately bring about a considerable increase in the merchandise
(freighted through this harbor. Up
to the outbreak of war our foreign
export trade was a negligible item
of about $50,000,000, the trade of
Canada, consisting-principally of an
exchange of commodities with the
American States. We are large buyer* from the, States of such necessities as coal, cotton, iron and steel
and vehicles; their requirements
from us are not so heavy. An adverse trade balance is just at present a disquieting feature of our commercial relations with other countries and lt becomes obvious that a
more strenuous effort must be
made to Introduce the produce and
manufactured goods of Canada Into
other markets, so that our purchasing powers may. be maintained and
increased on a firm basis.
The producers of this country, by
"Empress of Asia at 2.
consigning their goods via Van*
couver, can obtain ready shipment
to Hawaii, Fiji, New Zealand and aU
the ports of Australia by the Can«
adian Australasian Royal Mail Lin*
and the Canadian Government Merchant Marine, Ltd. To China, Japan,
Straits Settlement* and Philippine*
there nro, in addition to the regular
sailings of the C. P. O. S., four
other li -i'S giving a monthly service
'of freight steamers, and two giving
a fortnightly service. There are five
distinct companies trading via Panama Canal, hetween Vancouver and
Great Britain and Europe.
The trade of the. port for 1920
shows a gratifying incrcaso oyer
previous years, there being 2,456,000
tons of cargo handled over the
wharves, as compared with 2,380,000
tons in 11119. The outgoing cargoes,
both deep-sea and coastwise, totalled
795,000 torts;- the incoming cargoes '
totalled 1,. 170,000 tons, roughly two- .
thirds of the gross-weight. '" ' •
j It has heen shown that tbe Port of
Vancouver will, in the next two
years, arrive by gradual stages to
a considerably increased pitch of ef-'
ficiency, whereby it will be enabled
to load and discharge cargoes of
probably three times thc volume of
its present trade; the question presents itself as to the length of time
it will take to build up the complicated machinery of commerce, which
is necessary if these intricate markets are to become more closely related with the future trade of' Canada, .   , | . (THE   SUN,   URAND   FORKS,   B. C.

Prosperity of Canada Depends on Immigration
Lord Shaughnessy Declares Restrictions Must be Removed        .
A. Z. PARE, Proprietor!
Yalk Hotkl, Fikst Stukbt
I Th* urgent necessity of removing
from the immigration laws of Canada all Irksome restrictions which
ar* hampering the entry into Canada of good settlers for the farm
lands and forests of the Dominion
wa« presented in no uncertain terms
by Lord Shaughnessy, Chairman of
lhe C.P.R., speaking before the
Junior Bar Association of Montreal
in the He-form Club.
1 "The natural feeling that grew out
of the war," said Ida Lordship, "encouraged the placing of restrictions
en immigration that have been most
disastrous in their results. Wa must
hav* these restriction* removed. We
must have settlers from all ever the
•world, not artisans, but men who
will g* out on te star heads and onr
{forests and fisheries and heb to develop these resources, and there
;mu*t be an insistent demand on Parliament to pass legislation that will
open the doors to them."
His Lordship farther pointed to
the need of making good Hum^ii
citizens of thes* immigrant-., and to
foster throughout the Dominion the
spirit of Canadian citizenship. Mutual understanding and neighborli-
ness between Canadians at opposite
extremities of tha Dominion mnst b*
-pnemoted by ever; possible means.
Win by Work Only.
Alluding te th* fart that the members of the Junior Bar wet* on th*
threshold of their profession, he
-pointed ont to them th* Ugh row. to
success. Not by luok or by special
grace, but by hard work, devotion to
the profession, and strict obsei-faac*
of the ethics and dignity of th* Bar
would they achieve the objects they
were, aiming at.
Lord Shaughnswny recounted in
human**.* fashion how in Us early
youth b* had consecrated himself to
the legal profession, and had studied
law assiduously in Us spar* time for
many years, but just as he was on
the verge of entering a legal office
to gain th* necessary experience
prior to embarking in that profession, promotion and advancement in
commercial life came to him so
rapidly that he decided to remain
in th* commercial carter in which
such remarkable prosperity had been
Us happy lot.
Expressing his admiration for lawyers in general, His Lordship explained how important they were on
the staff of a railway orgunxaition,
not only for their legal abilities, hot
also because their particular training rendered them specially able to
lextend valuable help to thi* operating staff in the working out of practical operating problem*. "I do not
think we can have any bettor evidence
of the fact that a thoroughly capable
lawyer can fill any other position,
than in the case of my successor, Mr.
Beatty, who was our chief oea—i
for many years, was my nnnfidawt
in connection with everything involving questions of policy, but bssid*s
that in dealing with road questions,
and every variety of questions that
come before a railway commission,
and in dealing with officer* and men
of the railway he acquired a knowledge of the railway business that
hae made him net only th* very excellent lawyer that he has been tor
many years, but a most capable rail •
way executive, one of th* bast poa-
Dropping again into bis anecdotal
style, Lord Shaughnessy kept his
audience for some time in continuous laughter with a series of humorous incidents drawn from Us own
lengthy experience, tending to show
that no detail in connection with any
legal dispute was to be neglected,
that counsel should look at every
conceivable aspect of his caa* for
possible ammunition.
Tbey would accomplish nothing
through luck, or through special
grace, he told them, becoming serious once more. "Success will com*
by 'rood hard work, and devotion to
yonr profession. It must be a matter of constant study in order to
keep abreast with the Uw and if you
are to be prepared for the emergencies that arise in trial of eases
you must pursue rather a broad
course of reading. I hav* no doubt
that we have amongst us here tonight a great many who are not
only to be leaders in the bar, but
most prominent men on the bench.
The important matters for consideration are devotion to the profession, constant study, and due regard
for the reputation and the dignity of
the Bar.

They might sometimes have difficulty with a judge who declined to
agree with their interpretation of
the law. But they should be consoled with the thought that next
week His Lordship might deal in the
same way with their antagonist.
They might sometimes get their own
baek en tb* Court, as did the lawyer
in a -lander case who asked witness
to repeat in opart the language defendant used regarding plantiff.
Witness declined, saying it was "so
abominable, M should not be repeated
in ih* pi—mc* of any decent person."
In tha* ease," said* the lawyer,
"probably you will b* good enough
te whaper it in  th*   ear   of   the
AM membera of the Junior Bar
had, however, otber and very important duties, apart from those incumbent on them as members of the
legal profession.
"Ton young men of the coming
generation have a duty to perform,
as we all have in this generation, to
your country, te do everything in
your power to aak* Canada what it
should be, one great, happy unit
"We as* peculiarly constituted,
with ear long stretch of territory
from Neva Scotia to Vancouver, and
indeed te the Yukon. It is exceedingly difficult to build up neighborly
rdatione between the different scotian* of th* country. It should be
our eudeewu to do that. True, we
have bad federation now for fifty
-fears or over and we have come
through it quite comfortably and
happy. I think the fact we have
done so is a groat tribute to the wisdom and foresight of the men who
fnaaed th* British North America
"But conditions are constantly
changing in the country and if we
are to prevent misunderstanding's we
must always be alive to anticipate
events which may lead to these misunderstandings. If we are conscientious in endeavoring to preach the
gfespei of understanding and good
will we shall succeed in achieving
the highest ideals of the fathers of
West'vs. East.
"It is quite clear that the farmers,
■the agriculturists of bhe Prairie pro
vinces cannot on occasions see eye to
eye with the manufacturers of the
east. It is equally clear that British
Columbia three thousand miles r.way
cannot form any very correct co option at times of the ideals of the
Province of Q cbec. It can onl> b.
don* by interchange of views, by th*
exercise of ths greatest possM* tolerance en the part of everybody. Ia
the years between 1M2 and 1912, tha
years of our maxhnum piostwiMf,
then is no doubt that every part ef
the country narticfected alike in that
pro«perity..Tber* was no difference.
The fanner in Manitoba er Saskatchewan, or Alberta, or the timber
men in British Oofombia, the people
of Quebec, Ontario and the iiiliis
provinces all participated hi th*
prosperity and they will again.
When we have passed the present
unfavorable condition of things thejr
will participate again, but in ths
meantime we may have a time when
parts of the country will feel that
others ar* prospering at their expense. We must endeavor by every
possible process to comet that ***-
press ion.
"The foundation stones of our **tot*-
perity are out lands, eur mines, fo*.
ests and fisheries. These must ba
developed as rapidly as efeeum-
stances wiil permit, if we sr* te
make th* best of our oypurlurtUts
in the next few yean and to meat
the burdens whieh are laid upon as.
We-cannot do that without immigr*.
tion. The natural growth of population will not be sufficient te meed
th* demand.
Muat Have Settlers.
"We must hav* hnmigration, W*
have had very lttffc since 1914. Oa
the contrary, I aitt afraid wt hava
lost somewhat. Then, after the war
the natural feeling that grew ent at
th* war encouraged the placing ai
restrictions on immigration
have been most disastrous ln
results. We must have these restrictions removed. W* must lum
settlers from all over the world, net
artisans, but men who will go out en
to our land and our forests and fisheries and help to develop these re-;
sources and there must be an insist-'
ent demand on Parliament to pasa;
legislation that will open th* doom
to them to a reasonable extent and
will permit them to eome in.
"Then ther* is th* need to se* that
they become good citizens. They
must bc encouraged or if necessary
compelled to become good Canadian
citizens, although I prefer the former method if possible. They should
be taught that the interests of thair
children and of their children's children are, in Canada.
"We should endeavor to spread
through the country the fee-fag *f
such ardent fervor in citizenship that
every citizen, whether British born
or naturalized, when he spok* of
home, would mean Canada and n*
other country in th* world.
"Now, gentlemen," Lord Shaughnessy concluded, "I will only say this
further, that I wish everyone of yen
a Merry Christmas, and many yeara
of successful, noble, and, as prayers
alone will not furnish a living, quite
profitable career ia yeur cheaaa ****>•
