a ■/   **
verition Ever Held in the Constituency,
at Penticton Last Nijjht
At the Liberal convention for
Tale district in Penticton laat night
Mayor Sutherland, of Kelowna, was
nominated on the first ballot to contest the constituency against J. A.
MacKelvie, government nominee,
in tbe present federal elections.
There were three candidates in the
field, and as Mr. Sutherland received more votes on the first ballot
than the other two combined, his
nomination was, on motion o( one of
the unsucessful aspirants, made
Every section of the constituency
was represented by delegates, and
the harmony and enthusiasm whicb
prevailed in the convention augurs
well for success on the (5th day of
December. Mr. Sutherland is regarded   as tbe strongest  man tbat
could possibly bave been chosen to
champion the cause of Liberalism
in this district. He bas been mayor
of Kelowna for sixteen years, and
has an enviable record as a man of
integrity and as  a citizen generally.
The delegates from Grand Forks
riding were G. W. Elliott, Fred
Clark and C. V. Meggitt, and Dan
McPherson represented Greenwood.
Tb^local delegates retnrned home

ele.lcd president of the Yale Liberal
association, and C. H. Jackson, of
Kelowna, was chosen secrerary-
treasurer. The presidents and secretaries of the various provincial

Claim Is Made That Invention of New Airplane
Wing May Give Three
Hundred Miles Per Hour
London, Oct. 19.—A domonstra
tion was given yesterday of an air«.
plane fitted with wings of a new
design that, in the inventor's
opinion, is likely to revolutionize
air flight.
Tbe "alula" wing is the invention
of a Dutchman, Mr. Holle, who
hopes soon to attain a speed of be"
tween 200 and 300 miles per hour
with it In construction the wing is
unlike anything ever seen in this
country. It has a single frame built
of mahogany planking.
Wben the pilot cume down after
a long series of miinvouvers he snid
he had been travellers nt 184
miles an hour and that his rale of
climbing was as much as -iiiOO feet
a minute.
The angle of some of bis ascents
was sixty degrees. The wings were
attached to a fighting iierial destroy-
»er driven by a 300 horsepower engine, the machine being designed to
go up and attack at a moment's
notice. Tbe wing can also be fitted
to airplanes designed for carrying
heavy cargoes.
Nobody Can
Invention of a perpe^oal motion
machine is claimed by Richard Ul
ram, of New York. He has organized the Perpetual Motion Power,
Heat & Light company, and is offering $25,000,000 worth 'of stock
at 10 cents a share.
Don't crowd I
Mr. Ulram's greatest problem will
be to fight off pirates. For tbe pa
tent office, recognizing that perpotu
al motion is a scientific f il lacy, long
ago made a rule against issuing pa
tents on any contraption supposed
to run forever without outside aid.
Six lollies of   science—fix  things
neither you nor an / one else can do.
Perpetual motion is one.  In 1874
many thought John Keely, Phila-
delphio carpenter, had invented it.
The Keely motor gave wonderful
results. But it got its power from
compressed air, secretly conveyed.
Tbe fraud was exposed after the inventor died. He sold much stock.
Squaring the circle and multiplication of the cube are two otber im-
possiiblities. They have driven
many mathematicians crazy.
Fourth scientific folly is magic—
the black art wbicb mediicval sorcerers sought and pretended they
found. Magic would mean doing
Thurston's tricks without sleight of-
hand or olher fakery.
Fifth scientific fallacy is tbe elixir
of life. Ponce de Leon sought it in
a fabled fountain of youtb. Voron-
ofT, of Paris, seeks it in monkey
Sixth scientific fallacy is transmutation of metals—conversion of
iron or lead or other baser metals
into gold or silver.
That men like Richard Ulram
still attempt to achieve the six
follies of science shows that there is
always some one who refuses to be
lieve that anything is impossible.
It is man's nature to deny tbat he
is limited in bis powers. Laughed at,
jeered, he defies precedent—and
thereby makes progress. This spirit
may not achieve tbe original goal,
but it will accomplish something.
Thus Glauber, who devoted a lifetime in attempting to change lead
into gold, discovered a very useful
salt that bears his name.
Professor Frederick Soddy, of
Oxford," says tbat when man has
enougb radium and :an work with
l.OOOJWO volts of electricity *e may
really be able to change lead into
gold-       .      v
Six follies of science we call tbem
uow. But will future man solve them
and look back and laugh at us?
Flying was once called the seventh
folly of science. It has been laken
off the list.
Seed Grain Distribution
The annual free dstribution of
samples of seed grain will be conducted as usual at the Central experimental farm, Ottawa, by tbe
Dominion cerealist.
-The following kinds of seed grain
will be sent out tbis season:
Spring wheat, in about 5-lb. samples; white oats, about 4-lb.; barley,
about 5 lb.; field beas, about 5-lb.;
field beans, about 2 lb.; flax, about
None So Blind as Those Who Will Not See
Only one sample cen b» s^nt to
each applicant. '
Applications must be on printed
forms wbicb my be obtained by
writing to tbe Dominion Cerealist,
Experimental Farm, Ottawa.
As the stock of seed is limited,
farmers are advised to apply early
to avoid disappoinment. Those who
applied foo laie last season are par
ticularly requested to send in their
names at once so that application
forms may be forwarded .to them!
No application forms will be fur-
nished after February 1, 1922.

The Globe Export Liquoi company's store on Winnipeg avenue
was broken into on Tuesday night,
presumably by bootleggers from
across the line, and two cases of
liquor stolen. Mr. Mayo, who sleeps
in tbe building next c'oor, heard the
robbers, and gave the alarm by telephone, which frightened tbem
away, otherwise they undoubtedly
would havo made a big haul, as it
is said tbey had two big cars ready
to fill with the wet goods.

Dunlop Rubber Company's New Straight
Wall, 31 x 4 Cord Tire
Users of cars taking 30x31 rims
have now available a Straignt Wall
tvpe of rim, which allows the use of
a 31 x 4 Straight Wall Cord Tire, recently developed by the Dunlop Tire
& Rubber Goods Co., Limited.
This 31 x 4 Cord Tire, as previously stated, is made to fit the new
Straight Wall rim in 30 x 3J size,
and its introduction at this date is
particularly interesting because the
31 x 4 Straight Wall Cord Tire re-
presentran extension of the Straight
Wall principle in tire-building to the
smaller car tire. This makes it
possible for owners of "Briseo1"
"Chevrolet," ''Ford," "Gray-Dort,'
"Maxwell" or "Overland"cars lo use
the ne*v Straight Wall Tire—if tbey
so wish—by converting their present Clincher Rims into Straight
Rim  makers are   now supplying
30 x 3£S)raigbt Wall Rims  to   in
terchange   witb   30 x 3J    Clincher
Demountable   Rims   or Solid type
30 x 3J Clincher Rims.
The  new  30 x 3£ Straight   Wall
nm is exactly tBe same as  the 32
3£ Straight   Wall   rim   except that
it is twenty three inches in diameter
instead of twenty-live.
"31 x 4 Straight Wall" introduces
a new size ib Cord Tires, one that
undoubtedly will be very pipular
because of tbe records it will set for
tremendous mileage.
One Car Maker has already adopted the new Dunlop Cord Tire for
equipment purposes, and the pros
peels are that others will follow the
example immediately.
31x4 Straight Wall Coid is supplied in both "Ribbed" and the
well-known "Traction" tread designs.

Washington, Oct. 17.—A high
temperature wave will develop in
tbe extreme uortbwest during the
week centering on October 12 and
the storm wave, a low barometer,
one day behind it, will control the
weather for that week. That warm
wave moving southeastward is expected to reach meridian 90—a
straight line extending north and
south from St. Louis—near October
12. Three days earlier it will be in
Alaska, and after reaching the Gulf
of Mexico, it will spread over the
St. Lawrence valleys and surrounding sections near October 14. The
usual change >, first tbe storm wave,
then the cool wave one or two days
later, will affect'the whole continent
as they move eastwaid.
•This disturbance will not be very
great, but above the averge, and
rainfall accompanying will be about
tbe average and in sections where
moBt rain occurred during the summer. The most severe storms of the
first half of Octoher were expected
from October 1 to 8.
By October 8 the humidity, or
drmpness, of the wind tbat comes
from the eastward will have begun
to lessen and by October 15 will begin, gradually, a long spell of dryness. Tbis does not mean a drouth.

There is just cause for congratulation on
the spendid personal character and high standing in the constituency of the Liberal candidate nominated at the Penticton convention
last night. Mr. Sutherland is a gentleman in

whole hearted support.
A Ford car thatsells for $285 in Minnesota
costs $600 or $700 in Canada. Mr. Ford has
factories in the United States and in Canada.
He can manufacture a car as cheaply iu Canada as he can in Michigan. But the tariff allows him to pocket the difference of- the cost
of the car in the two countries as an addition -
al profit above the cost of production. There
are hundreds of parallel cases where old-estab
lished and full grown manufacturing concerns
are permitted to legally rob the consumers
The tariff eecds revising, and t needs it badly.
Hirohito, the crown prince of Japan.is back
again in Tokyo after several months of jour

an enthusiasm which seems to prove the undiminished loyalty of the nation to the royal

was the loud cheering and the waving of hand
kerchiefs that marked his progress through
the streets of Yokohama and Tokyo.   In the

Dal Erin, or Dail Eireann, frequently seen
in newspaper reports, is the name of the present republican parliament in Ireland: In ancient times a common name for Ireland was
Eire, nominative case; Eireann or Erin, possessive; Eirnn, objective. The'Dal was an assemblage somewhat like the English Knights
of the Shire, its duties being of a legislative
character. Hence Dal Erin (pronounoed Dhawl
Airin) means the parliament of Ireland.

In every one of the newly created political
divisions of Europe the*chief aim of the peas •
ani leaders has been to hasten the solution of
the land question, in order to satisfy the hunger of the people for fields of their own. In
Bulgaria, Czecho-Slovakia, Jugo-Slavia, Hun
gary and Roumania the demands of the Green
International have been receiving attention.
In Czecho-Slovakia especially there has been
rapid progress, so that 150,000 farmers have
become owners of the soil, and 500,000 acres
of land are to be leased to former soldiers,
farming associations, parishes and public
utility companies. The forests, because it is so
necessary to preserve them, will be adminis
tered by the state.

A pernicious word is "inexhaustible." "In

any other ore nor forests nor fertility can last
permanently in the face of selfish exploitation

Row Difficult It Is

By* Brig. Cen. C. G. Dawes
One  changes   his   mind   as   information
changes, prov'ded that informt?tion alters the
foundation of correlated   facts upon   which
opinion must always be builded. But we must
be guided by facts.
It takes more than reason to bend national
pride. Necessity must also exist.
Now that the pressure of emergency is over
I have to spur myself to work. I believe I am
naturally inclined to indolence when off a red
hot stove. The merely spectacular in life will
never lack description.
The history of the great war will be written
around achievement—not shoulder straps.
Emergency is after all the greatest coordi-
My experienoe in working for co-orindation
teaches me that the co ordinator must himself
co-ordinate his mental activities with others.
Distrust of each others' intentions is fatal to
quick action in time of emergency.
How majestic is naturalness. I have never
met a man whom I really considered a great
man who was not always natural and simple.
Affectation is inevitably the mark of one not
sure of himself.
It never occurs to me now to look for dirt.
I am so anxious to get something to eat. I am
writing this right here for the benefit of middle
aged business mon. The joys of youth are still
within our reach if we only give over physical
and mental indolence.
Humbleness and naturalness are the great
protection against ignorance.
The anti-climax which the inexperienced and
over-vain bring upon themselves by encouraging newspaper self-exploitation upon assuming
important duties is one of the chief causes of
a subsequent failure. The censor happily pro
tected the A.E.F. from* much of this sort of I
thing, but many in the United States were de
stroyed, or destroyed their own usefulness
themselves, by it.
In proportion as men are right-minded and
intelligent, ceremony is unessential in their relations.
Inexperience aid ignorance in its association with experience and knowledge will always profit by humbleness of opinion.
How difficult it is to keep vanity under the
harness of the intellect.
Somehow it is not so inspiring to work at
saving money for one's government as to work
at helping to save its life.
.Clementel, Fiench minister of commerce, inexpressibly horrified me by kissing me on both
cheeks before a large audience. As we sat at
the table together, I told Hoover our old

who know us better, would never have made
the mistake either by making ns 30 prominent
or by kissing us.
We lunched in a house owned by Ogden
Mills whieh was formerly the palace of Marshal Lannes. As I looked around me I said
"John (Gen. Pershing), when I contrast these
barren surrondings with the luxuriousness of
our early life in Lincoln, Neb., it does seem
that a good man has no real chance in this

(By Professor Percy E. Nobbs)
While the feeling of Canadians
appears to be distinctly against
titular honors, and while the interest in personal coats of arms is
so slight that the whole machinery
of registration is Ignored alike by
the many unaffected and by the few
entitled to bear arms, there has of
late been quite a healthy development in the matter of place heraldry.
Many Canadian towns have adopted
coats of arms, and for thc most part
they are feasible, heraldic-ally speaking, and in some instances duly
registered at the College of Heralds
in London. All the provinces, both
new and old, have beautiful coats
of arms, duly granted, and used to
the full by the provincial governments, both as decorations to public
printing, and as flags, on occasion.
The Federal authority haa, however, till quite recently, been less
well furnished, and the maple leaf,
the beaver, the arms of the four first
provinces to federate, marshalled together on a quartered field, and
last, but not least, a marshalled coat ,
of the arms of all nine provinces,
have all been used as a symbol of
sovereignty in a rather indiscriminate fashion.
Just recently, Hia Majesty the
King—the Empire's "fountain of
honor,'' to use the heraldic phrase,
has been graciously pleased to approve a Royal Coat of Arms for
It is not generally understood tbat
Anna of Sovereignty are not necessarily the personal Arms of the sovereign, ana in case of conquest Arms
ef Sovereignty pass automatically to
the conquering ruler, at least thsfi
haa been the way of it in Europe.
When the King is in Scotland, his
standard is flown, and on it the
Scots Anna occur on the first and
fourth quarters, and the English and
Irish Anna on the second and third
quartera respectively. Also, hia
Scots Anns are surmounted by a
different crest, a red lion sitting up,
his supporters tne lion and the urn-
corn, are transposed, and they
usually carry banners with the St.
Andrew's ant St. George's crosses.
And so the King's Arms of Sovereignty B Ireland ate differentiated by repeating the harp on
the blue field twice.
Henceforth, in Canada, when the
King is represented ln authority by
a piece of ornamental symbolism
- wbich we call hia Coat of Arms, it
will bo as in tho case of Scotland
and Ireland, by a variant upon the
Royal Arms of England. To avoid
the heraldic portmanteau phraseology (which is the briefest and
moat concise form of scientific descriptive expression ever invented,
but a language not taught in the
schools) the design will be as follows:—
The shield will bave four quarters,
and a base; on the right and left,
at tha top, we have the three gold
leopards of England on a red background, and the red lion of Scotland, with his blue claws and tongue,
on a gold background, with a double
line of decorated framing round him.
Below tha. English leopards, on a
blue background, we have the golden
harp of Ireland, with its silver
strings, and below the Scots lion we
have the three gold lilies of France
' ceumtxe or cen. I
alao on al3ue T>ackground; and at
the bottom of the shield we have the
green Canadian maple leaves on a
white or silver background. The
supporters are a geld lion (without
a crown on hla head aa in the Royal
Arms of England), but bearing as
a banner the Union Jack, and a silver unicorn with gold trimmings, in-
jfexfag hie cetlej. and Abs chain, aa*
bearing as a banner the ancient
Arms of France, that is to say, a
pattern of gold lilies on a blue field.
Above the shield, the sovereignty
being royal, there is a royal gold
helmet, with the Imperial crown, and
on this crown there stands the crest
consisting of a ferocious little golden
lion waving a red maple leaf in his
paw, and wearing a crown on his
head. It is to be observed that the
crown and crest are attached to the
helmet by means of a red and white
wreath, and this may be drawn as
ribands twisting in and out of the
crown, or even as a red and white
cord round a cushion on top of the
helmet, for if the rules of good
heraldry are very rigid in the mat-
tor of the shield, they are very elastic as to interpretation of the accessories.
And so with the mantling. The
old Scottish custom of blue and
white will be followed, with this difference, that instead of white we
have ermine, and as this goes well
with royal blue, the combination
makes a far finer royal achievement
than if a gold and silver mantling
is added to a gold helmet, a gold
crown and a gold crest.
There is no mottoed garter, or
chain and jewel of a knightly order,
surrounding the shield, and thin is
probably an intentional difference,
in consonance with thc present position of affairs with reference to
Canadian titles.
The motto again is different from
that of the Royal Arms as used in
England, Scotland and Ireland, being "A mari usque ad mare."
On the Royal Arms of England
there occurs at the bottom an ornament—the three badge flowers combined on one stem, symbolic of the
Union. In the case of the Royal
Arms of Canada the badge flowers
will be somewhat more numerous,
consisting of a rose flanked by a
thistle, a lily and shamrock, and leek
leaves, and terminating at each side
lis a tn% td magi*.   Tbia onuunani
may, of course, be treated with considerable freedom, and the coloring
be made as conventional or as naturalistic as the taste of the artist
may require.
So, we have in the Royal Arms nf
Canada an agglomeration of symbols sanctified by origin, by time,
and by association—the leopards of
Edward the First, and lilies of
Ancient France nnd of the Bourbons'
empire, the red Scottish lion that
was old when Robert the Bruce replaced his private arms with the
arms of the Sovereignty of Scotland, and the supporting unicorn,
with a crown about his neck, which
was once the crown of a French
Dauphin, in Mary Stuart's day, and
though the crown has now the distinctive crosses of thc Scots crown,
the old chain is still appended thereto. The crest is the crest as it was
in the Black Prince's time, with the
addition of a crown on the lion's
head and a maple leaf in his paw.
The Union Jack on the banner is
itself a combination of the crosses
of the patron saints—St. Patrick's
from the earliest culture in the British Isles, and St. Andrew's, near as
old, and St. George's cross that was
Used In land fighting since ever
Englishmen antl Scotsmen fought
for the adjustment of their borders.
Hut its use at sea, according to tha
Genoese, was bought from them far
j;old, because theirs was thc only
flag respected by Turks and Riffs,
and English merchants had need of
it in the Middle Sea. And there ia
the story of the three badge flowers, and their combination on one
stem at the time of the union, which
is modem history.
- tVhile we are considering this last
.rant of Arms affecting the Dominion, it is interesting to hark
hack to the first, which was probably
tho heraldic device of tho Baronets
of Nova Kcotia, a very beautiful design, albeit associated with a somewhat sordid talo of trafficking iu
titles by James I. and VI. (THE   SUN.   GRAND   FORES,   B.C.

National Crisis
"My appeal is to the whole people; to
every man and woman who -wants to do
right by this country; to everyone •who
breathes the spirit of our fathers who
founded this British Dominion."
THE Election to be held December 6th
will be the most, momentous in
Canadian history; for as men and
women vote will depend the economic
stability, the political stability and,
indeed, the national stability of this
Today we find group striving against group,
class against class, the industrial and financial
structure of the country assailed by false and
unsound doctrines and theories, while our
great neighbour to the south has adopted &
trade exclusion policy directed against Canadalfc
tast agricultural interests.
The currencies of nearly every country in the woHS
are depreciated. The Canadian dollar in the Unitefl
States is subject to a heavy discount causing a loH
of over one hundred million dollars in exchange
Europe is overwhelmed with war debts—unemployw
ment is acute —and the restoration to pre-wai
conditions is slow. m
While Canada is in a much more favorable condition
than many countries, yet there is evidence of stagnation, instability, unemployment and lack of confidence.
Taxes are heavy because of tiie country's efforts in
the Great War, but have become burdensome on
account of the misconceived policies and blunders
of Governments that directed Canada's affairs prior
to 1911.
These condition* are largely the direct aftermath of
the war, but they must be dealt with fearlessly and
Constructively. This is no time to consider experimental changes, or the theories of visionaries.
This is no time for Crerar and his Free Trade policy.
This is no time for King and his wobbling "charted"
policies, varying with each provincial boundary.
It is the time to cling to orderly, stable Government
in the interest of all the people; to be guided by the
experience of the past, proceeding upon lines that
have been proven Mound.
It is the time to place the destinies of Canada again
in the hands of a Government led by a sane, courageous Canadian who has safely brought the country
through the trying years of reconstruction, and upon
whom we can rely to retain and initiate policies in
the interest, not of a group ox Class but of all the
