Victoria, Jan. 19.—By the
court of appeal decision in
the Grand Forks election appeal, handed down today, E.
C. Henniger, Liberal candidate, stands elected by a majority of six votes. The court
held that the act clearly requires the placing of the cross
in the white square opposite
the name of the candidate on
the left hand side of the ballot paper. There were 28
ballots in dispute which had
been marked with a cross at
the right hand side of the
candidate's name, and by the
court's dicision 22 of these, if
allowed, would have gone in
favor of John McKie, the
Conservative candidate, and
six in favor of Mr. Henniger.
Joseph Martin, K.C, for
the Conservative candidate,
claimed that the statute
called for a black ballot with
white squares for the cross
and sufficient white space for
the names of the candidates.
He claimed that even the
form given in the statute was
not in accordance with the
statute itself, and further,
that the ballots issued for use
in the election were in connection with tbe form.
After hearing argument by
F. T. Congdon on behalf of
Mr. Henniger, the court expressed the opinion that the
form of ballot was sufficient
to satisfy the requirements of
of the act.

Marnes and Riley were eacb tried

The prisoners pleaded guilty on

Victo/ia, Jan. 19.—Tbe value of
timber sold on crown lands last
year were nearly three times that of
1919, according to figures issued today by Hon. T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands.
The 1920 sales are placed at $1,-
799,039. while the figures for 1919
were $654,373. In 1916 the total
was $259,769.
The value is not entirely due to
increased stumpage and royalty, the
minister explains, aB the average
covered by new timber sales last
year was 121,690. In 1919 the total
was 61,809, and for 1910' 23,318.
Largest gains are in saw timber
with 440,640,755 board feet last year
as against 240,209,300 feet in 1919,
and 196,345,000 feet in 1916.
Posts showed 149,300 last year,
against 5000 in 1919 and none in
Railway ties make up the gieat
est gain with 0,415,349 last year,
957.805 in 1919 and 92,000 in $916.
During 1920 there were 594 sales
of crown timbers. The year before
there were 356, and in 1916 there
were 133.
.The Vancouver and Island district provided 258 of the 594 sales
for tne year and $600,465, or more
than oue third of the total revenue.
The next district is Prince Rupert,
with 93.sales giving §264,061 revenue. In Nelson there were 63 sales,
but tbe revenue from them was only
$80,402, Kamloops with 50 sales
provided 1478,812; Fort George with
52 sales, and 1264,979; Cranbrook
with 47 and $36,156; Vernon wilh
25 and $73,208, and Carihjo with
six and $953.
Tbe chief railroad tie district is
Kamloops, providing 5,736,950 of
the total, or 90 per cent of the provincial output.

act, the Adoption act, and the Marriage act.
. The Kqual Guardianship act is a
model one, Mrs. McGill claims, for
under the act all disabilities of married women with respect to guardianship of their children were removed.
For tbe protection of the children
of the province, a splendid group of
laws has been enacted, ilfce speaker
told the women. Under this group
comes the Juvenile Uourt act,which
bas been extended to deal with all
cases coming under the Infants act
and tbe Industrial School act, and
it also allows women to become the
judges of such a court. Another
amendment to this act is that the
age at whicb girls may be sent to
the industrial school has been raised
to eighteen years.
In the Infants act, Mrs. McGill
pointed out tbat tbe definition of a
neglected cbild nas been so enlarged
as to afford greater protection. It
now includes ghildren begging.or
pretending to sell, running away
from home, living with immoral par
ents or in an immoral home.
One of the many things we should
be proud of in British Columbia,
said Mrs. McGill, in further speaking of child legislation, is the establishment of a sub normal school at
Essondale for feeble-minded ch
dren, where they will be given a von
cational training and proper care.
In dealing with mothers' pensions
Mrs. AIcGill said its object was to
provide children with home life and
care of a suitable character when
the father, the breadwinner,hasdied
or become incapacitated.      . "
Among the otber acts mentioned
were the Adoption acl, by which the
rights ofthe adopted child are safeguarded; tbe Deserted Wives' Maintenance a_*t, under which a wife may
sue for non-support; tbe Adminis
tration act, protecting widows from
injustice and deprivation under tbe
wills of their husbands; tbe Marriage
act, wbich raised the age of botb
sexes to 16,and the Minimum Wage

British Columbia is leading in
domestic legislation—no other province in the Dominion can come up
to it, stated Mrs. J. II. McGill, judge
of the juvenile court in Vancouver,
when speaking on the new legislation that has recently been enacted,
before a meeting of tbe Local Council of Women in New Westminster
last week. Mrs. McGill's talk on
ehe new laws was listened* to witb
great interest by the very large gath
ering of women representative of
many of the women's organizations
of the Royal City.
In speaking of tbe work of the
Local Council of Women, Mrs. McGill said its opinions should be very
valuable, because it is representative
of every women's organization. The
National Council, she also pointed
out, always interested itself in laws
for women, because it realized tbe
ideal of a state is expressed in its
domestic legistion.
The acts Mrs. McGill dealt principally with were the Equal Guardianship act, the   Mothers'  Pension
London, Jan. 19.—"Anthropologists are looking less and lsss for

stretched to Higbgate on the one
side and to Galley-hill, near Woolwich, on the other.

May Aid Settlers
to Purchase Powder
. Victoria, Jan. 20.—Speaking at
the Farmers' Institute convention, Hon. E. D. Barrow announced
that he intends to introduce a bill
at the next session of the legislature
authorizing the government to pay
one-third of the cost of blasting
powder for bona fide settlers.
The minister would not commit
himself regarding the suggestion to
create a land clearing branch of bis
department, although he was ready
to admit tbat the plan possessed desirable features. He pointed out
that the land settlement board had
done clearing on an extensive scale.
He said he did not approve of purchase of extensive machinery for
land clearing purposes, and that he
favored horse power and the block
and tackle system. *r

As was anticipated by The Sun, the court
of appeal on Wednesday dismissed the appeal taken by the Conservative candidate for
Grand Forks riding from the decision handed
down by the county court judge
E. C. Henniger the member for Grand Forks
riding. The result could not well have been
otherwise. The Elections act is quite clear
regarding spoiled ballots, and a judge, even
though a supreme, court judge, has has to render his decisions according to the laws enacted
by parliament. In the case in question, the
judge had no occult means*of determining the
intention of the voters who marked their ballots \yrong. Even had he possed this faculty,
he would still have been obliged to hand
down a decision in accordance with the act,
and the law is so plain that the ordinary citizen of average intelligence can interpret it. It
is unfortunate for Mr. McKie that his professed" friends and the leaders of his party
should have urged him on to take his case into
the courts, because the incident has greatly
militated against his popularity.
march of h'&pse improvement and development. Than the French-Canadian horse there
is probably no breed that is more hardy or
more agriculturally useful. The French-Canadian Horse Breeders' association has long
been in affiliation for record purposes with
the national live stock record board at Ottawa, and in the last two years that association
has turned over to the Dominion department
of agriculture for twenty years a farm of 500
acres at St. Joachim, Que, to be mainly used
for the breeding of its particular type of horse,
There are at present 67 French-Canadian
horses on the farm, all registered. Entries
were made at some of the more prominent
fall fairs in Quebec, and in each instance first
prizes and championships were won.

work—or to avoid it—raises the old question
of how to prevent vagrancy. Some authorities
advocate farm labor colonies. At any rate
there should be some place where men with
neither means nor inclination to suppoYt themselves could be put to productive work. The
more vagrants the more criminals.        •*
Our hardshell Conservative friends may
fuss and fume and foam as much as they
please, but the fact is plainly apparent that
Grand Forks riding has passed out of the
column of sure Conservative seats. As time
goes on this deduction will become more
marked. The old settlers moving away from
the district are nearly all of the Conservative
faith, and most of the newcomers are from
the Liberal prairie country. Besides, the
Oliver government's first administration was
satisfactory enough to the electorate to I e
endorsed, and when the advanced laws enacted have been more fully tested the govern
ment will gain in popularity. The Conserva

can be liberated at lower cost than by the
present sulphuric-acid process. The very impurities that make so much of the low-grade
phosphate rock unprofitable to treat by the
sulphuric acid process are put to good use ' in
bn'queting the material with coke 'and sand
while smelting it. Weight for weight, the new
product is 64 per cent phosphoric acid against
16 per cent recovered by tlio old process. But
the most important thing is tliat billions oi

Reports from abroad declare that there are

put a stop to all Salvation Army work in Russia, because it regarded the army as a "counter-revolutionary" organization. Most people

damaging criticism of the revolution.

influence on the horse and also developed the
value of machinery in its place.    Bnt experience has proved that there are still many uses
to which the horse can be better applied than

For two hundred years Defoe's story of the
plague in London has been regarded as a
wonderfully clever and realistic piece of fiction, although the overshadowing genius he
showed in Robinson Crusoe has perhaps
dwarfed the interest of critics 'n his lesser,
but still great, work. Now comes Dr. Watson
Nicholson with a book in which he embodies
the results of much careful search in- the Brit
ish Museum and other places and proves, as
he believes, that the Journal of the Plague
Year is not fiction but fact. The book should
help to reawaken interest in a work that every
young person who wants to learn to write
well should read.

To make one's life more attractive; to give it an outlook; to make
one realize that his avocation is going to call for mental ability of high
order tf* well as for physical
strength is an important and inter,
esting task. If this can be done,
and at the same time, pleasure had
and lasting friendships formed,
profit and recreation will happily
mingle.        '
This is done through Joys' and
Girls' Clubs and the tea .i.ng in the
public schools of Manitoba of Agriculture and Home-Making. In 1912,
seven such clubs were organized
with an initial membership of 750
and so popular has the movement
proved that there are to-day 240
such clubs, 1,500 branch clubs and
a total membership of 30,000. Practically all girls and boys, between
tho ages of ten and nineteen years
in that province—outside dl the
cities—are members of the clubs
with tho result that future emphasis
in this connection is directed towards maldng the work more efficient.
Government encouragement of
the movement is shown in tho provision of CO per cent, of the money
paid out in cash prizes on agricultural  and home  economics  and  GO
* per cent on school exhibits up to
15 per cent of tho total Government grant, the amount required for
such purposes this year, was $20,-
000. Manitoba is tho only province
that tangibly assists clubs to hold
fairs in this manner and after four
years' experience, they are evidently well satisfied with the result and convinced that such assistance has materially contributed to
the success of the movement.
The number taking part in the
various projects shown by the
following list, namely, gardening
15,000; sowing 12,000; cookery 12,-
000; poultry 5,000; canning 5,000;
live stock. 4,500; grain growing
2,500; dairying 2,300 and woodwork
1,800, indicates that some subjects
are moro popular than others. The
difference is, moro a question of circumstances. Many club members
living in towns cannot go in for
livestock, grain growing and dairy-
• ing to the extent that they would
like, nnd generally, these cannot; be
taken up in (be country except by
the teen age members, while in thu
projects like gardening, poultry
raising and sewing, all members can
take  part.
The four leaf clover, the emblem
of good luck with a capital "H" on
each leaf, has been adopted as the
club emblem. Tho four "H's" typify
the* all round development which
club work stands for, "Head, Hand,
Heart and Health."
ft "ho feature of club work that
wakes it superior to practically all
other teen age organizations, such
as tho Boy Scouts,  C.adejs,  Tuxw|
The Modern Canning Team Champions of Manitoba.
Squares, Trail Hangers, etc., is ownership. Practically all the good features in theso splendid city boy
organizations aro included in the
Boys' and Girls' Club scheme, and in
addition, provision is made for each
member to raise chickens or pigs
or calves and sheep. To plant a
garden and preserve tho products,
to have a quarter aero plot of certified disease free potatoes and lastly,
to be able lo sell their product and
open a snug bank account, not for
the purpose of hoarding, but to have
it available for use when a favorable
opportunity  presents  itself.
Neither the toy or girl who has
no money to spend nor the one who
gets oil he wants to spend, has any
idea of the value of money or how
to advantageously spend it when
they do happen io have it, compared
with the boy who cams it and is
free to invest it as his judgment
A feature of club work developed
during the 'past year that offers
great possibilities, is team demonstration work. A demonstration
team consists of three f;irls or three
boys, a captain and two assistants.
Such a team will take an agricultural or home economics subject and
by dramatizing it, invest it with
such interest that not only do the
members of the team, but those who
have the opportunity of listening to
them, see in it a subject capable of
untold interest and investigation.
The members work together with
such clock-like regularity that one
or other is always speaking and the
two nre doing the actual mechanical
work at the same time, and when
the demonstration is completed, the
table is cleared and everything
packed away.
By these means, agricultural education  is  being  j-nade  a  joy  and.1
entertainment to thousands of Manitoba's boys and girls. The movement will make for better and happier homes and greater agricultural
future output.
The captain of a cow-testing team
for instance, will give an interesting review of dairy cattle from the
time of the l'ilgrim Fathers, when
John Alder is said lo have taken
Priscilla Mellen to their future home
on the back of a Ilolstein Bullock,
up to *he present when magnificent
herds of Ilolstein, Ayrshires and
Shorthorns are to bc found in many
parts of the province. While she ia
giving this description, her teammates are busily unpacking a Bab-
cock tester and preparing for a
demonstration of its use. Not more
than ten minutes is taken by the
Captain with the historic part of
the program. She then steps aside
and is soon busily engaged with a
part of the mechanical work connected with the demonstration while
one of her team mates takes her
place" and explains the theory ot
cow-teating and its advantages.
The third member then explains tha
make of the machine, tells something of the inventor and shows how
to use it.
Team demonstration work develops co-operation, the ability to
speak in public, habits of reading
and research, neatness, accuracy
and speed, local pride in the com-
muity and a goo*i ""tctieai knowledge of the suffj,  ,,
Manitoba has te uns on canning,
cookery,   sewing lent   dyeing,
stock judging, vegetable judging
and grain inspection. Recently OTIS
section of the district champion
demonstration team spent a whole
week "in Winnipeg in sight seeing,
entertainment and education, as a
reward for achievement in club work
