No Extension of West

Extension of the power lines of

more vigorous development.
But if tbere are weak branches on
one side of a tree and strong ones
on tbe other the reduction of leaf
area on the weak branches will tend
to further weaken these branches because of the strongest sap flow toward the greatest foliage area, obviously therefore a reduction of foliage area on the strong branches will
lessen tbis tendency andjthrow more
grawth toward tbe weaker branches.
Tbe central branch should be allowed to maintain the lead; tbis,
however, not for the purpose of
forming a pyramidal tree but eo
that from its several well spaced
scaffold limbs may be developed,
thus forming a more desirable type
tree tban if scaffold branches are developed on side branches only. After
a few good scaffold branches are
formed on tbis central leader, lf
tbe tendency is toward a pyramidal
witb a central leader extending high
into tbe air having many branches
radiating from it, this should be
checked, tbus forming a tree combining the desirable features of
tbe pyramiderl form and eliminating the undesirable open centre form
of tree.
To balance the tree the heading
back of strong growing branches is
necessary. This beading back tends
to develop side branches, and attention must be given to the elimination of some of these that too many
scaffold branches are not formed.
The whole aim should be to build
up a framework tbat will carry large
crops of fruit and at the same time

Little difficulty is anticipated in

The foliage of a tree is the manu
facturing centre where food materials
from  the  soil   combine with those
from the air to form tbe tissue build
ing materials.   The larger the active
leaf  area, therefore,  tbe better tbe
growth. Definite experiments covering four years in Virginia indicate
an average increase of trunk growth
of 1.93   inches   on lightly pruned
trees,   1.69  inches  on moderately
pruned  trees  and 1.61 inches on
heavily pruned trees. In other words
the greatest growth will iesu[t where
no pruning is practiced. Pruning is
necessary, however,   to direct the
growth so tbat an  evenly balanced
strong tree may be formed and surplus and undesirable branches  not
allowed to develop. The directing of
tbe  growth during the early years
of tbe tree is of particular importance. Tbe ideal tree is probably that
which has the first branches about
24 inches from the ground and five
to  six   branches   which form the
frame of tbe tree, spaced evenly as
far apart as  possible.   Particularly
desireable ls it to remove the   next

Heading back at planting time is
necessary to balance the loss from
cut' off roots because of digging.
Teste made at Kentville, show an
average growth of 4.32 inches tne
first year and 20 inches the second
year where-newly planted trees had
three-quarters of their growth removed, whereas similar trees not
headed back made a growth of 1
inch tbe first year and 2.4 inches the
second year.
Strong growing branches should
be suppressed by heading back and
weak branches not pruned at all.
If the whole tree is weak a severe

as regards ordinary expenditures,
and is borrowing only for purposes

tation. So stated Hon. John Hart,
minister of finance, in delivering bis
budget address in the legislature
Thursday night.
Arevenue of $17,101,595 for tbe
coming year (March 31 ends thi
fiscal year) is anticipated, which,
the minister shows, is an increase
over the current fiscal year exceeding
tbree million dollars. Tbe estimated
expenditure for next year is placed
at $16,980,208 on current account,
and $2,868,765 capital expenditure
out of income.a total of $19,848,974,
and an incerease over tbe current
year of $2,435,140.
Anticipated revenue is from tbe
following sources: Department of

|ulture, $41,000; education, $74,-

fruit,   a   dense growth is therefore
objectionable and tbe preventing of
this should for the most   part   consist of annual removal of such small
branches as are likely in time to extend to where otber more  desirable
branches should be.   Tbe judgment
of the operator only can determine
bow best to develop tbe  tree,    Tbe
tendency   to    remove    all    small
branches whicb may for  years   develop fruiting areas should be avoided.   It is, of course, impossible to
prune  so   that  some of tbe larger
branches will not in time have to be
removed, but a little   thought   will
romove this possibility to   a   minimum.
Undoubtedly tbe latter part of
March and April are the best
months to prune. The wounds made
at that Poison will more readily
heal over than if made earlier, and
tbere is more time to give to the
work. Coverings are generally of
iittle value except in the case of a
large wound, wben a good thick white
lead paint with a little linseed oil in
it should be painted into the wood
surface to prevent checking and decay. Such wounds should be protected from year to year to preserve
the wood until healed over.
Tbe cutting should be made reasonably close, as otherwise more
time wili be required for the wound
to heal over. .Stubs of branches if
left prevent a covering of the wound
with bark, and decay may result before the wound is healed over. Old
neglected trees sbould be carefully
pruned to remove all dead wood,
leaving tbe best and strongest
branches. It is not always possible
to make a good looking, shapely
tree in doing this, and the usefulness of many an old tree has been
sacrificed for many years by too extreme pruning at one time.

FRIDAY, MARCH 18, 1921
That is a puzzling bill introduced in the
house last week to amend the Municipnl act
so as to provide for the election of aldermen
and councillors for two-year terms, and to retire one-half of the council each year.   The
bill, we are told, is fathered by the Union of i
British Columbia Municipalities, and was in
trod ueed. in the legislature at the request of
that organization.   We hope the press dis
patches are in error when they state that one-
half of the council will probably be retired
eaeh year, because it robs the measure of the
only feature that might otherwise have been
advanced in its favor, i.e., economy.   If an
undesirable alderman is elected, one year is
long enough for him to serve: if a capable al
derman is chosen, it is easy to elect him to  *
second term.   These are the advantages of the
present system over the proposed change.  On
the other hand, if it is intended to hold biennial elections and to retire all of the aldermen on the same date, the scheme is entitled
to consideration, because it would save municipalities the exense of civic elections  every
other year.   City elections are expensive and
British Columbia cities must economize.   But
there would be no economy in electing aldermen for two years and at the same time hold
annual elections.
factory conclnsion. The clause, however, seems
to be doomed to ultimate burial. Although
the Moderation bill is not a party measure,
the Conservative members of the house appear to be more intent on making political
capital out of it than they are in assistihg to
frame a model and workable law.
In seriously considering the erection of a
central packing house it is reasonable to suppose that the fruit growers of this valley
have found the trail that will ultimately lead
to increased prosperity. The central part of|
the valley is undoubted this city.
The present session of the British   parlia
ment is a lively one.    It began with a rear
rangement of the cabinet, by which Winston
Churchill became secretary for the overseas
dominions in place of Lord Milner.   Sir Lam
ihg Evans became secretary for war, and Lord
Lee of Farcham went to the admiralty.   The
premier has his work cut out for him.  British
policy toward Germany, toward Russia, and
toward Ireland is under fire from ver ous
quarters, and the opposition, though it  still
consists of incoherent elements often hostile
among themselves, grows constantly stronger
in numbers.   This parliament still has two
years and a half of its normal course to run,
but it will be surprising if a general election
is so long postponed.  The latest blow to the
government is tqe retirement from the cabinet
of Rt. Hon. Andrew Bonar Law, who has been
Lloyd George's chief assistant in holding the
party now in power together.
Remark has several times been made in
parliament and elsewhere that the splendid
work done by the experiment farms system
of Canada is not nearly so widely known and
appreciated as it should be.   In the Agricultural Gazette of Canada for January there appears an outline of the system and the tasks
in wbich it is engaged.   The Central experimental farm at Ottawa is the headquarters of
the twenty branch or auxiliary farms or stations.   It is stated that there is one farm in
each of the provinces of Prince Edward Island,
New Brunswick and  Ontario, two in Nova
Scotia, four in Quebec, two in Manitoba, three
in Saskatchewan, two in Alberta, and four in
British Columbia.   There are also two substations in Alberta, two in the Yukon and one
in British Columbia.   In addition, working
with the system, are tobacco stations at Farn-
ham, Que., and Harrow, Ont.   At all of these
experimental and research work of national
importance is carrien on.   Eighty illustration
or demonstration stations have also been established in New Brunswich, Nova Scotia,
Quebec, Alberta, and Saskatchewan.   Each
branch of agriculture is dealt with in actual
experiment, and the results are made public
through the press or by means of addresses,
demonstrations, and exhibits.   In short, every
effort is made to encourge, advance and benefit agriculture, the basic industry of the coun

The Paris correspondent ofthe Manchester
Guardian passes on for what it is worth the
current rumor that one party ih Austria is
suggesting that Vienna And the old duchy of
Austria be put under the sovereignty of the
pope. That would interest the politicians of
the Curia, for it wqpld give the pope the temporal authority he has lacked for fifty years
and might prove the basis for compromise of
the long-standing ^quarrel   with   the Italian
monarchy.   The pope would not be likely to
give up his residence at Rome, but he would
no longer feel it necessary to remain a prisoner
in [.the Vatican, and by virtue of his so ver
eiSnty in Austria he could take the part he is
ambitious to play in European politics.   How
European powers would view such a solution
of thc political confusion in Austria does not
yet appear; but we suspect that the would not
unanimously approve it.

Spain kept out of the war, but it is scarcely
in a better condition than those countries that
went in. Its politics are in a state of continual
crisis; its ministries appear and disappear with
monotonous frequency. There are poverty,
uneasiness and discontent everywhere. The
Catalonians are continually restless under the
national government; labor is dissatisfied and
menacing; the politicians are flurried and puzzled. The extremists on both sides think that
parliamentary government has failed and call
for something different; tbe Clericals want a
five-year dictatorship—probably under the
king—and the Syndicalists are demanding a
soviet revolution. It is safe to say that the
troubles lie deeper than the form of government, in the ignorance and narrowness of a
great part of the people, in backwardness of
the economic and agricultural organization of
the country and in tha strength of the provin -
eial as opposed to the national spirit throughout Spain. King Alfonso is the strongest influence for national unity that there is. He is
tactful, energetic and possessed of more sound
political sense than most of his ministers.

That sturdy and ambitious Turk, Mustapha
Kemal, appears to be making some headway.
His capital at Angora has grown to three
times its former sice. It is said to be prospe r-
ous and orderly, and the government is collecting taxes regularly and spending the money
in improving roads, erecting public buildings,
establishing a military academy. Kemal wants
his government recognized as the real Turkish
government; he does not care about actually
dethroning the sultan, but he intends to restrict him to his purely religious functions as
the head of Islam. He is in a fair way of car
rying his point, too; in fact, so far as the
Turks themselves have anything to say, he has
already carried it. No one pays any attention
to the sultan. He governs no one, and three of
his own ministers have deserted him and gone
over to Kemal. The allied powers keep up the
fiction of his authority for their own purposes,
but no agreement they make with him regarding Turkey is worth the paper it is written
on. They have got to treat with Kemal or put
him out of business.

ln Lake O'Hara, green as its Irish
name. One of the numerous mountain trails from Lake Louise connects with the route to Abbot Pass,
a deep canyon between Mt. Victoria, 11,335 feet high, and Mt. Le-

making combined efforts to brine
about a fitting commemoration of

great eclat—probably 10,000 people
attending—and a monument to de
Monte, tne founder, in a commanding position ta the ground, of Fort
Anne, stands aa a permanent mem-
trial  of that occasion.
Now lt it proposed to celebrate
and erect a memorial of the tercentenary of the berth of tke Province.
It waa in 16M, the country then
being claimed m$ the British by virtue of Arrall's oewetieat of Acadia in
1613, that Jama. I. ef England, VI.

authorizing it issued on the 5th August, 1621, and tiie date of the ter-
centerary celebration will in all likelihood be tke 5th August thi. year,
and the scene of it the old Fort of
Annapolis, now called Fort Ann.,
where a bronae tablet will be erected
aa a memorial.
At the same time and place the
legal profession will celebrate the

under the auspices ef the Historical
Association ef Annapolis Royal commemorate! the one hundredth anniversary ef the arrival in this Town

Thus there will be a tercentenary,

stronghold of Port Royal, whose
rampart., bastions and outwork, are
still in a wonderful state of pres-
ervation, and form the centre of attraction for thousands of visitors
every year.
The committee, in charge of the
arrangement, have hopes that the
Governor-General will be present to
unveil the tablets, which will be
formally presented by representatives respectively of the province,
the legal profession and the local
