Speakers From Coast Organizations Entertained by the Local Board
of Trade „
W. K. Payne, secretary and organizer of the Vancouver board of
trade; Frank Parsons, representing
the president, wbo was unable to
make tbe trip, and IJ. A. McKelvie,
who has charge of the Made in B.C.
Bureau, arrived in Grand Forks on
Sunday evening. The principal mission of the visitors was to get the
Grand Forks board of trade to join
the union of boards of trade cf British Columbia. Tbe local board' entertained the visitors at a luncheon
in tbe Yale hotel at 1:30 on Monday
afternoon. There were forty three
members present, Mayor Hull presiding, whj introduced the speakers.
VV. E. Payne spoke on the great
advantages of tbe Grand Foris
board joining tbe Union of Britsh
Columbia Boards of Trade. Frank
Parsons, who represented the president of the Vancouver board of
trade, urged tbe members to pull
tigether and boost for tbeir town
and the pr jviuce aud to never forget that they were a part of the
great Britfsb empire. Dr. Acres
and E. C. Henniger spoke blridly.
Mr. Henniger said it was unfortunate tbat more notice bad not been
given to tbe local board of trade, so
that the Empress theater could bave
been secured and the general public
given an opportunity to hear Mr.
Geo. C. Egg moved a resolution
urging tbe provincial government to
expedite work on tbe irrigation pro
ject. Tbe reselutiou, wbicb was seconded by C. C. Heaven, was unanimously adopted.
Mayor Hull and E. C. Henniger
showed tbe visitors over tbe villey
in the morning.
Mr. McKelvie said, in part:
If we came to your tine city asking for donations for a fund to buy
pink parasols for the Pigmies of Central Afric, or bard bats fur the
Hottentots, your well known generosity would jusity the belief that we
would collect a considerable sum.
We are not asking your benevolence
on behalf of ether Pigmies or Hot-
tentots; we are not soliciting a single penny of your bard earned "dollars.
But we are asking you to assist in
giving employment to 20,000 of
your fellow citizens in British Columbia who are today out of work.
The very fact that this will cost you
nothing is probably one reason wby
you require to be leminded that
"charity begins at home." You
know you always remember that
day at school when teacher in her
own inimical manner remarked,
"Johnny, hoid out jour hand."
This is the occasion when you are
again asked to hold out your hand
—not for puuishment, but to give
assistance to yonr fellow citizen, and
io aid in tbe development of your
own province, and your own city.
Today, in tbe city of Vancouver
alone, tbere are 3000 veterans out
of work; men who fought overseas
to defend you and me. You remember wheu tbe lads went off to tbe
front, with bands playing. You re
member the gratitude you expressed
to them at that time—and today
tbey are walking the streets in
search of employment.
It is not the factory superintend
ents wbo are keeping closed the
doors of employment to tbem. It is
tbe buying public of British Columbia that ie denying them work,
when for every article of local manufacture bought four imported articles are consumed.
Our mission is to ask you—with-
outcostto yourselves—togive employment to British Columbia workers, to assist iu the development of
your province, and thereby benefit
yourselves. Do you think the request is an unfair one? Perhaps you
think it is presumptuous and unwarranted—but is it?
Is it time that tbe Made in-B.C.
campaign should send out tbis appeal to you, when we, tbe citizens of
this great province, instead of conserving our buying to the benefit of
British Columbia and Canada, increase our forego imports of agricultural commodities by 80 per cent in
one year? This^we did last year. In
1919 we imported $4,314,000 worth
of farm products. Last year this
large total had increased lo 87,900,-
Is it not time to do something
when a fruit growing province such
as this imports more than 4,000,000
pounds of apples in a single year,
and increose its consumption of foreign canned fruits from 2,600,000 to
6;30d,OoO in twelve   months;  when

of S.S. Empress of France, on arrival at Quebec.
for every lio of Okanagan preserved
peaches used in this province four
tins of California peaches   are used?
Is it not time to take some action
when we import from foreign countries more than a milliondozsn eggs,
while the chicken ranchers of the
Fraser valley are killing off their
birds because they can not find a
profitable market?
* And while tbe trade with foreign
countries, in agricultural products,
increased by more than 80 per cen t
in one year, tbe trade witb the other
provinces of Canada increased in
the same period by a fraction un-
d|r 2 per cent.
Last year we imported more tban
#50,000,000 worth of merchadise
from the United States, tbe great
bulk of which we could have bought
either from British Columbia, Canadian or British producers. On this
we paid more than $7,000,000 in
exchange, for which we did not receive value to one cent. Think of it.
A drain of about $20,000 a day
from this province. This was not
the whole of the exchange bill, for
on banking paper, loans, etc., we
brought the total up to $27,000 a
day, or roughly $10,000,000 forthe
Think what could have been done
with that money I It would have
completed and paved a transprovincial highway. It would have irrigated the whole of the interior with
hydro-electric power. It would have
constructed a great steel and iron
smelter, or wou'd have established
two or three pulp and paper mills.
But what did it do for British Col-
lumbia? Absolutely nothing.
Seven or eight thousand families
could have been kept in luxury on
what we paid in exchange alone last
year. Instead, tbere are thousands
of your fellow citizens walking the

Continued on Page 4.
We take good care to provide food
and protection for ourselves and our
livestock in winter, but too often the
bees, which need tbem justasmnch
for tbeir survival and comfort, are
neglected. Thousands of colonies
die every winter aud many more are
badly weakened for want of timely
care in the fall. Every colony saved
will produce, at a low estimate, ten
dollars' worth of honey the next
year, if well managed.
Three things need special attention in preparing bees for winter-
protection, strength and stores.
Protection—The beekeeper should
decide early whether he will winter
his bees outside or in a cellar.
Roughly speaking, in Britssh Col
umbia, southern Ontario and the
Annapolis valley, N.S , outside wintering is advisable. For tbe rest of
Canada use a well insulated cellar,
deep in well drained ground. Mucb,
however, depends on whether one
has a* good cellar or a yard well
sheltered from wind for outside
wintering. Bees bave been wintered
outside successfully as far north as
Haileybury.Ont., and at Lethbridge,
Alta. The cellar should be fairly
dry, with a steady temperature not
exceeding 50 deg nor less than 40
For outside wintering place the
hive in a case with packing between. For packing use planer
shavings or well dried leaves, moss,
etc. Cases may be made to take one,
two or four hives each. There should
be 2^ to four inches of packing at
the sides and beneath and a cushion
on top 6 to 8 inches thick. Cases
in which the floor section is separated and has sides extending above
tbe entrance holes save labor iu
packing. In the four-colony cases
the side sections may be hooked to
getber. Have the cases made in time
to pack the hives at the middle of
September. Ou the Pacific coast
where tbe winters are mild and
damp, tbe side and bottom packing
sbould be omitted and tbe roof
sbould bo well ventilated.
SUength and Young Queens.—
United all weak colonies in September so tbat each hive will contain
enough bees to cover at least tbe
equivalent of eight Lungstrotb
frames; enough bees to crowd on ten
frames is better. See tbat each colony has a young fertile queen, if
possible not later tban the end of
July, so that many young bees will
be raised in August.
Many Lois Acquired by
Tax Sale Proceedings
Are Disposed of by the
Stores.—A sufficient supply of
wholesome stores is most important.
Feed sugar syrup (two parts relin9d
sug-<r to one part water) during
September—first week in October
io southern Ontario—to bring the
weight of each colony up to forty
pounds. A ten-frame Langstroth
hive without the cover should weigh
between 70 aod 80 pounds. In places
where the honey gathered is not
perfectly wholesome for winter, at
least ten pounds of the stores should
consist of sugar syrup. Where it is
likeiy the honey is decidedly unwholesome or will granulate hard in
the combs in winter at least half of
the stores should be sugar syrup.
If necessary, remove outside combs
of honey and place empty combs in
the middle of the hive. The following stores have been found unwholesome: Honey gathered in certain marshy places in the Maritime
provinces, from aster near Lake
Erie, in Manitoba when there is a
short crop in a dry summer, dandelion honey and honey containing
honey dew or fruit juice. The best
honey is that from alsike and white
clover. Honey from alfalfa and
from sweet clover is inclined to
granulate too hard in cold regions.
Ordinary ten-pound honey tins with
small boles punched in tbe lid will
do for feeding. Feed rapidly. Preferably pack thc hives in the cases
before feeding.—F. W. L. .Sladen
Dominion Apiarist.

For all news and sensational purposes, the
Henniger incident may now be said to be closed.
The papers that wanted the facts printed them;
those that did not want them printed fiction.
The Nelson News, which seldom gets anything right when it talks on the subject of
provincial politics,belongs to the latter class. It
has a largo imitative following among the
weekly press of the interior.
Serious consideration is being given by the
administrators of tho forest resources in the
various provinces to a scheme for curbing the
gross carelessness of camping parties in needlessly starting forest fires. The job of extinguishing timber conflagrations resulting from
fires set by campers and cigarette smokers
has caused the public treasuries such a sum
of money that some means of curbing the evil
will have to be devised. Already tho province
of New Brunswiek is considering a classification of its woodland area with a view to prohibiting the entry to fishermen anu others who
may employ camp fires or drop lighted tobacco
and matches. Such a legislation might work a
hardship on many sportsmen, but as a class
fiishermen, hunters and campers generally
would have only themselves to thank for whatever penalties might be imposed upon them in
the interest of forest protection. To leave the
camp tire burning has been shown over and
over again to have vicious possibilities. The
value of the forest resources is such that not
an acre of timber can be burned without the
people as a whole paying a serious penalty.
millions on club dues. Bowling alleys, playing
cards and chewing gum account for almost
a hundred million. The rest goes for fur coats
and clothing of such expensive character that
it falls within the field of the luxury tax. The I
thrift division of the taeasury department   is
so mnch impressed by the evidence of lavi sh
spending that it is going to begin a new ca m-
paigu to encourage thrift.  It hopes to turn a
considerable part of the torrent of extravagance into the purchase of government savings
Although everyone complains' that money
is hard to get and that it all has to go for
taxes and tho necessaries of life, wc do not
yet seem to be deprived of the surplus that
goes into the purchase of luxuries. The reports received by the United States treasury
department from the so-called "luxury taxes''
show that the American people spend something like five billion dollars a year for the
trimmings of life. About one billion dollars a
year—approximately one-quarter what it costs
Co run the government and pay the interest on
the huge war debt—finds ijs way into the
theaters and moving picture houses. Smokers
spend a quarter of a billion on tobacco. Soda
wator, ice cream and "soft" drinks take half a
billion. The people spend i^L'O.OOO.OOO on
jewelry, seventy-five millions on perfumes,
cosmetics aud similar toilet articles, and   fifty
Tho mutual helpfulness between the United
States and Great Britain which we all desire
can not bo realized until two great misapprehensions have been removed—one of which
has pervaded Europe respecting the United
States and the other has permeated tho United
States as to Europe. The two combined appear to constitute the chief barrier to full and
effective play and cooperation based upon
confidence and understanding. I find in Europe,
says Amoassador Harvey, the common impression that the United States alone among
the nations of the world, is today a land of
milk and honey whose people not only are
universally prosperous, but are rich beyond
the traditional dreams of avarice. You have
only to supplement the fancy with a suspicion
which I find not wholly lack ng, that all this
opulence and this happiness are direct results
of the great war, to account for the wholly na
tural sense of resentment. What are the facts?
Did the United States really profit from the
war to such a degree as to make the lives she
sacrificed seem to the cynical and sordid-
minded relatively insignificant? In dollars, the
cost to America of her participation in the
war, when finally computed, will fall not so
very short of the entire indemnity upon Germany. I muke no comparisons. There has
been too much of that already Surely no good
can come now, when we are all striving to get
together in common purpose for the common
weal, from disputing over the relative sizes of
the contriburions to the great, cause. The second misapprehension to which I referred is
that of my own countrymen, who have been
led to doubt that the peoples of Europe have
been doing the utmost for themselves before
seeking help. Gladly I pay the highest tribnte
to the courage and pride of these sorely smitten peoples. Already the better understanding
between Great Britain and the United States
has achieved one far-reaching result. For the
first time in history the turbulent Atlantic has
become as a mill pond and has practically
been eliminated from considerations of danger
so far as naval warfare is concerned. There is
ground for good hope, moreover, that what
ever apprehensions exist of perilous possibilities on the Pacific may be dispelled sooner
than is commonly anticipated. When, if at all,
that splendid consummation shall have been
attained, in response to the apperently universal desire, disarmament will follow inevitably, and peace on earth will be assured for
years, and may be forever.

let the desolation of pessimism stalk
through the land.
An optimist has been described
as a man wbo sees two lights burning where only one exists, and a
pessimist as a man who endeavors
to blow out both lights.
What we require in British Columbia today ie the men who at
least can see the glow of the lamp
that is burning—men who can for
get the shadows of yesterday and
look forward to the dawn of a more
glorious tomorrow. There is uo
need for pessimism if we will set
our minds and hands towards mak
ing British Columbia prosperous.

The birthdays of Mr. George H.
Ham, of the C. P. R., have for many
years past been observed by some
function or other. If it was not a
home-like dinner with a score or so
of close friends, or a public banquet
or a presentation, or an operation
in a hospital, or a trip on a railway
train, it was something else. This
year a radical departure is being
made from the ordinary August 23rd
proceedings with the Musson Book
Company of Toronto as sponsors fot
the innovation. On that day, thi?
publishing company is issuing "Re
miniscences of a Raconteur," the
author of which is Mr. Ham. In
the articles which originally appear
ed in Maclean's Magazine, the author
recalls incidents of his busy and by
no means monotonous life from the
infantile age of three down to the
present day. The allotted three
score and ten of man is most inter
estingly covered. From his early
boyhood days, he recounts events
which include the Fenian Raids and
the second Riel Rebellion, of chas
Ing and being chased by wild In
dians, of the bustling early days of
Winnipeg and the West, of the
Governors-General he has met, of
the intrepid officers of the Hudson's
Bay Company, of the Mormons with
whom he mingled accompanied by
the Canadian Women's Press Clul
of which he is the only male mem
ber, and he writes entertainingly of
banquets and binquetcers. lie delves

telepathic communication and other
psychological subjects. Ue has some
previously unpublished stories of his
old friend, Mark Twain, and an excellent article on Brother Andre, tha
Miracle Man of Montreal, and his
great work. Under the caption of
"Scarlet and Gold" he tells of the
gallant men of the Northwest
Mounted Police in its early days. In
"When Toronto was Young," he
gives a graphic description of tht
Queen City in the past, and his stories of politics and politicians give
'.ho reader an hitherto unknown insight into the life of many of the
grand old men of Canada, when Sir
John Macdonald, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
Sir Richard Cartwright and their
confreres held sway. The "C. P.
R.," of which Mr. Ham has been
part and parcel foT nearly a third
of a century, is presented in a way
that it only could be by one intimate
with its workings and the brainy
men who inaugurated and ably managed it from its infancy until it be-
ame perhaps the greatest transportation company in the world,
