Seeing the End
Special Ctmwppadcttce of TJte Sun,
Victoria, Sept 7.—More than'
ever determined to construct the
Pacific Qreat Eastern through to
Prince Oeorge, bb the result of opinions obtained )hroui*;h tbe recent ex
cursion from Squamish to the end
of steel at Cottonwood river, Premier
Oliver and Hon. Jobn Hart, minister of finance, are busy seeking ways
and means to finance tbe undertaking. Only sixty three miles separate
the Bteelbead and tbe city of Prince
George and 3000 tons of steel are
now on h nd at tbe latter point.
The premier hopes to lay at least
twenty males of this before winter,
with tbe line to be completed early
next summer.
What may happen  the northern
•*. stretch of the road from Squamtoh
to Lillooet remains in doubt.   Many
of the excursionists wbo made the
trip expressed opinions that this section might well be abandoned as s
railway sod the route used as the
transprovincial     highway.      Tbis
would necessitate the construction
* of the* Ashcroft Clinton cut off, with
. direct connection being made wilh
the Canadian National and Canadian   Pacilic lines.   Certain it is, the
road will be completed as rapidly as
possible to Prince George.
The honor system among boys in
the provincial industrial school has
worked out wonderfully well, stated
Hon. Dr. MacLeon, provincial secretary, in discussing the work of that
institution as superintended by
David Brankin. During tbe recent
camping trip provided for tbe boys
all were placed on tbeir bonor, and
while tbere was every opportunity
to misbtbave'ajid even'escape from
the rales of the sbool( not one boy
had a black mark chalked up
against him. Tbe boys will soon be
eetah'iehed in tbe new school at Ka-
sondale, where every facility is being provided for making good citizens.
Plaos for tbe coining full session
of the provincial legislature are being speeded up by Premier Oliver
and tbe minister of tbe cabinet. It
is expected tbat the opening will
tske place on Tuesday, November 2,
witb Christmas seeing tbe eud of
the sittings. The next will be known
as the "taxation session," since tbe
ohief irein ou tho agenda will be
municipal taxation. Amendments
to the liquor act are being prepared,
and it is likely tbat a reduction will
be made in tne uric; of goods sold
at the government stores.
Work on the* big Sumas reclamation pioject is proceeding satisfac
tot-fly, states Hon. E. D. Barrow,
minister of agriculture. Another
advance of $100,000 was made re
cehtly by the government, and now
all tbe dredging machines are working at capacity, with thore being
every prospect oi blocking the
water of the Fraser next summer.
This will mean tbe reclamation of
some 30,000 acres of tbe finest lands
in the province, witb the lands benefited bearing the cost of tbe undertaking..
Another link in tbe transprovin
oial highway may be constructed
shrtly, as the result of negotiations
between the government and the
citizens of Nelson. Tbe Ymir-Nelson
link is being considered by tbe de
partment ef public works,and if the
Nelson advocates see thoir way clear
to provide 20.' per cent of the cost
the project will go through. The
roid being a main trunk highway,
the federal government grarits it
per cent of the amount required,
with the province paying a similar
amount. The people of Nelson have
agreed to buy the bonds if the government will float an issue. buTTFe
premier is inclined to tbe view that
the city should also bear a fifth of
tbe actual cost.
Prosecutions are being, om-
mepced against lumber interests in
British Columbia employing Orientals, it bas been announced -by Attorney-General Farris. The provincial court of appeal has already
ruled against the province in tbis
matter, but the case will be carried
to the supreme court of Cauada and
from there to tbe privy council if
Washington, Sept. 5—Near September 4 cool wave will be on nhrth-
ern part of meridian 90, and it is ex
pected to bring frosts to northwestern
sections east of Rockies' crest. Severe storms are expected on that
part of the continent not far from
September 3. Th's will be tbe beginning of a period of two weeks of
stormy weather that will reach most
parts oi the contitnent, and the rains
of the first half of September will
put the soil in good condition for the
sowing aod growing of winter grain.
Near September 7 high temperature
wave will cover the northern Rockies
and the valleys east and west of
them. Neoarly all storms move
southeastward from that section,
and they with the storm and cool
wave cross the coutinent from there
in about four days. Another warm
wave" will cover thoBe sections near
September 10, and the movement
eastward of all tbe storm features
will be similar to those preceding.
For a week following this last warm
wave a great and rapid downward
movement of temperature is expected, resulting in unusally cold
weather and killiqg frosts further
south than usual. The week center
ing on Septemher 19 will be unusually cold and a large amount of
rain, well distributed, is expected
duiing the ten days beginning Sep
tern ber 14.

It's After a Vacation That the Rest Is Needed
Construction of Pump
House Foundations for
Irrigation System WiU
Be Started This Fall
E. A. Cleveland of Victoria,
comptroller of water rights, was in
the city on Tuesda/. During tbe
day he had a consultation with
Consulting Engineer W. Groves and
Local Engineer Graham, of the
Grand Forks irrigation district. The
three gentlemen inspected the proposed site for the pumping plant of
unit No. 1 of the local irrigation pro
jectand also visited a number of private pumping plants in the valley.
Mr. Cleveland returned to Victoria
on Wednesday, after gaining all the
information that he could about the
projected system here.
As a result of Mr. Cleveland's
visit to the city, tenders aje now being advertised for the construction
of pump house foundations for No.
I unit of the system.
Great American Nitrogen
•   Research      Laboratory
Turns Its Attention to
borbood of a thousand million dollars.
The fixed nitrogen research laboratory of tbe United States will continue its experiments in the interests
of agriculture until needed again by
the war office. There are tbree pro-
esses of obtaining this object, the
cyanamide, tbe Haber and tbe arc
process. The latter is the most important method from the military
point of view, since it can be most
rapidly installed in case of war, and
since it provides nitrogen at once in
tbe nitrate form without oxidation
from ammonia.
The Haber is a German process,
dangerous to use because of the
quantities of highly inflammable
gases engendered., Tbe States' laboratory will follow tbe cyanamide
method, aod expects at the Muscle
Sboals plant to produce 220,000
tons of tbis chemical per annum,
wbile further investigation and research will be made by tbe hundred
trained exports who constitute tbe
personnel_of the laboratory.
A peculiarity of such establishments in any modern country is the
rigid secrecy maintaiued by eacb
government because of the great advantage of a supply of fixed nitrogen
in time of w._y\
Although Germany has carrted on
extensive research for years, the results have not been made available,
and it has been necessary for tbe
American scientists to start from
ratber rudimentary beginnings.
Pot and field tests have been
carried on already, witb very valu-
aqle results, and mucb greater experimentation is being made this
year, and valuable information will
be available at tbe end of lbe sra-

A pretty wedding waB solemnized
in Holy Trinity church at 8:30
o'clock' Tuesday morning, wben
Verro Bernard Kidwell, a civil engineer of Piedmont, Wash., was
united in marriage to Miss Emma
Needham, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
T, K. Needham, of this city, R?v.
P. C. Hayman performing the cero-
mony. Misses Maude Raeburn aud
Joyce McLeod acted as bridesmaids.
The church was very prettily deco
eted. Ths couple left on the Great
Northern morning train for a wedding tour to the coast cities. They
will make their home at Piedmont,
Wast.     .
Among the regular visitants to the
consulting room of a physician was
an extremely garrulous lady. On
one occasion the doctor had patiently endured a lengthy recital of
her troubles and bad written ont? a
new prescription. She got up to
leave and was about to pass tbe
threshold when suddenly she turned
and said: "But, dootor, you haven't
looked to see whether my tongue is
coated." "My dear lady," wearily
replied the physician, "one doesn't
look for grass on a racetrack."
The transfer of the fixed nitrogen
research laboratory at Washington
from the war department to the de
partment of agriculture is the most
modern interrelation of boating
swords into plowshares.
Established to discover methods
of obtaining nitrogen from tbe air,
to furnish material for high explosives, this scientific laboratory* was
only just in its infancy, being started
in 1919.
Nitrogen, however7, is of far more
use in peace than in war. Explosives
may not be made with jut it. but
neither can fertilizers, and it is- ac-
knowledgen by tbe seers in tbe scien
tific world that if the increasing population of tbe earth is to be adequately fed, new means must be
found to fertilizo tbe world's crops.
Nitrogen is one of tbe tbree great
elements necessary in plant fertil
ieitrs, tbe others being potash and
phosphoric acid. The other two may
be recovered again and again from
ash and otber substances, but nitrogen has a way of slipping out of control and returning to the air ogam
when matter is decomposed, so tbat
always means must be found to
bring it bask to the soil. The most
common method practiced by tbe
farmer is to grow legumes (clover
and peas), wbich are attractive to
certain nitrifying bacteria. Tbese
minute creatores attach themselves
in colonies to the roots of theBe
plants and by drawing nitrogen
from tbe air to store in their colonies
they increase the "fixad" nitrogen
io the soil, giving the nexl crops
food for their need.
How fast this nitrogen escapes
back to tbe air may(be guessed from
tbe figures supplied by an authority
who states that the total loss of nitrogen from the arable land under cultivation ia tbe United States is
equivalent to over fifteen million
tons of ammonium sulphate (its
commercial form) a year, represent-
I ing a material worth in   tbe neigh-

"I speak four languages," proudly boasted tbe door man of a hotel in
Rome to an American guest. "Yes,
four—Italian, French, English and
American." "But English and

the guest. "Not at all replied the

field for the spread of their doctrines. The
spread of discontent was greatly augmented
by the oft-repeated reports of enormous profits
piled up during the war. Two other factors
are the belief in the unequal distribution of
wealth and the vulgar display of valuables in
public places.
Premier Meighen has announced that a general federal election will be held before Christmas. It is expected that at least four political
parties will be in the field. This interesting
event should have a tendency to dispel the
monotony of the long evenings during the
next three months.
The interior of Baffin Land, according to
Eskimo tales, should furnish one of the richest
and most enchanting fields of research in the
north. It is said to have high mountains,
beautiful lakes and great mineral deposits,
and to be the breeding ground for immense
numbers of waterfowl. The primary purpose
of the MacMillan expedition is to explore
that unknown country and to do field work in
zoology, botany, geology, meteorology and
terrestrial magnetism.
The Flanders poppy, which became so well
known through Colonel McCrae's poem, In
Flanders Fields, has been declared to  be an
undesirable immigrant to America.   Beautiful
the flower undoubtedly is, and for thousands
of Canadians so full of saered associations that
we should be glad to see it growing every
where here. But investigation has shown it to
be an objectionable weed, difficult or impossible to control, since it sows itself persistently,
and is therefore likely, if introduced here, to
bacome as   objectionable as the   daisy, the
hawkweed or the thistle.
The curie, which is the unit for measuring
radioactivity, perpetuates the name of the discs >verer of radium. The multiples and sub-
divisions'of the unit follow the metric nomen
clature; the millecurie, one thousandth of a
curie, is the one most frequently used.
The methods of handling forest lands in
Canada differ radically from those customary
in some other countries. In Canada the different governments sold, and still sell, the timber
to the lumbermen and lease them the land on
which the timber grows. In some countries a
large percentage of the timber land is owned
outright by private interests. In Canada 93
per cent of the timber land is owned by the
provinces or the Dominion. The provincial
andj federal "governments collect in stumage
and ground rents a revenue of between nine
million and ten million dollars a year. No
matter whether the forests are owned by the
state or by private corporations, every citizen
is interested in their conservation because of
the money their utilization circulates, but
Canadians have this additional incentive to
care for the forests, that 93 trees out of every
hundred cut down bring some revenue directly
into a provincial treasury of the Dominion

The new conference of nations at Washing
ton has been called for November 11, the
third anniversary of the armistice. All the
powers officially express great hopes for it,
but neithea Japan nor Great Britain nor the
United States think it wise to stop building
naval ships in anticipation of an agreement to
re luce naval armanent. The British parlia
mant has just authorized the construction of
foirfine new battle cruisers with sixteen-inch
guns and bilge protection. The government
spokesman, Colonel Amery, gave the economists a little encourakement when he said
thit the admiralty now thought equality with
tha fleet of any other single power was all that
was necessary. For years before the war the
British navy felt obliged to build to the "two-
power" standard.
An item of one hundred million dollars,
hitherto not taken into calculation, must be
aided to what the war cost America.   This
huge sum is the estimated cost of the 1920
crime wave, which is traceable to the effeet of
tlie wat on humanity.   If the present ratio is
maintained, crime   losses   for   1921   will be
equally as large.    More serious than money is
the unprecedented addition  to the ranks of
America's criminals.   The $100,000,000 estj
mate is  based  upon  the embezzlement and
burglary claims paid for 1920 by thirty of thc
country's leading safety and  burglary insurance companies. These companies paid claims
aggregating $15,813,072, while in 1913, before
the outbreak of the war, claims for only $3,-
328;789 were paid.   But approximately 90 per
cent of the burglary and embezzlement losses
are not insured, and in many instances  where
full claims were paid, the insurance was far too
small to cover the actual loss.   Every war is
followed   by widespread disrespect   of law.
Cynical thoughts of the cheapness of human

By Cristabel Pankhurst
Man does not live by bread alone. Then
why should he be obsessed and harassed as at
present, by the question of how to gain enough
bread and other material necessities?
This troubling problem can be solved by the
scientist. Yes at this very time, when science
is on the way to its greatest discoveries and
can offer more help to humanity than ever before, industrial unrest and economic anxie'ties
are more intense than they have ever been. If
only politicians of every complexion would
agree to a truce on the industrial question and
invite the scientists to take the lead and point
the wayl
So one hopes that, while women voters will
be able to discover the highest possibilities of
politics, they will also, paradoxical as it may
seem, recognize the limitat ons of politics, and
not imagine, as some men appear to do, that
everything can be settled by a public meeting,
a general election or a cabinet council.
The menfolk are quarreling about the sharing out of the wealth now available. Women,
however, know that it would be easy enough
to do a fair sharing out of what is there, for
they have always managed that in their homes.
The real difficulty, as they know by experience, is to have enough to go round. The
national difficulty is precisely the same, for up
to the present day the total wealth 'available
for the community has never been sufficient,
even if shared out on the most ideal system
imaginable, to give to each individual a life
worth living from the material point of view,.
This means that poverty can never be done
away with until more wealth is produced for
consumption by the people. That is where
science comes in, for it is science alone, teaching new ways of producing increased wealth,
and producing it without excessive drudgery
that can rescue the community from poverty
and the present crippling burden of material
But for the task the scientists have undertaken finer and purer instruments are needed;
these cost money, and this form of science is
ill-endowed. The stupidity, the tragedy of it!
Millions of money are lost through strikes and
lockouts and industrial dog fights over the
much too bare bone of present-day wealth.
And all the time the scientists, who are the
really effective industrial and social reformers,
find their work starved and hindered for want
of the necessary funds.
One fuather and supreme task falls to worn
en, whose influence, now that they are citizens,
begins to count for more tnan it ever did in
the past. It is this—to open their ears to spir
itual ^truth, to recognize that material well-
being, vastly important though it is, .ought to
be made a means to spiritual ends. Women's
place is on the watch tower, looking with far-
searching eyes for that new revelation for
which the soul of the world yearns.
