Vancouver, August 3.—Mr. Jus
tice Macdonald bas dismissed the
application of the Army and Navy
Veterans in Canada (Victoria Uiit)
for a writ of prohibition to restrain
further prosecution on a charge of
selling beer in contravention of tb e
government liquor act.
His lordship held the statute valid
and constitutional on the ground
that it was of a "local or private
nature" which by section 92 of the
British North America acl was al
located as a portion of the field for
provincial legislation.
The judgment reads   in  part as
"The Army and Navy  Veterans
in Canada w >re, by Dominion statute, incorporated as an association
and   became invested with certain
rights, including lhatof establishing
branches  at  any place in Canada.
The Victoria unit of such association
applies for a writ of prohibition  to
prevent the police" magistrate of Vi)-
toria from further prooeeding witb
the trial of a charge that the  applicant, 'not being a governmeat vendor,   did  unlawfully   sell    liquor
known and described as beer,  contrary to the government liquor act.'
The   particular section of such act,
wbich covers the offense, is  as follows. 'No person other than a government vendor shall sell or deal in
any   liquid known or described as
beer, or nea. beer, or by any  name
whatever commonly used, to describe
malt or brewed liquor.' Tbe ground
taken in support of the application
is that the government liquor act  is
ultra vires of the province, and that
the magistrate is thus without jurisdiction.
"I have, in tbe manner indicated,
considered the impugned legislation
and, in view of tbe decisions wbich
I have shortly outlined, concluded
that the passage of the act in question was within the power of the
local legislature add is valid. I
think such legislation was of the lo
cal or private nature intended by
section 92 of the British North
America Act to be within the jurisdiction of the province. The appli
cation for a writ of prohibition is
therefore dismissed."

Special Correspondence of The Sun.
Victoria, August 3.—"ThiB is
once wbere the big cities will have
to suffer for tbe sake of tbe smaller
communities," was the statement of
one of tbe commissioners of tbe
liquor control board, in discussing
the readjustment of beer prices
throughout tbe province. Tbe new
schedule of prices, wh ch went into
effect on August 1, shows no de
crease in the prioe of beer to people
in the larger centers, but there iB a
material reduction to consumers in
tbe outlying districts. Owing to tbe
distance from the nearest brewery,
Prince G-jorge pays tbe highest price
for beer. $25 50, or $2 55 per dozen
pint bottles. In all cities where a
brewery is located tbe price will be
$20 per barrel or $2 per dozen pint
bottles. A lower price might be
quoted in tbe larger centers, but the
price named will be retained in
order that tbe price in the smaller
centers may be kept as low as possible.
Most optimistic is the report of
the game conservation board, sub
mitted by Hon. J. W. deB. Farris,
attorney-general, who states that
most forms of big game are on tbe
increase, thanks to tbe careful methods employed by the game officials.
According to the new regulations
for tbis year, no does, cow moose, or
cow caribou may be killed, but the
report claims that there is such a
general increase in these species tbat
the hunter sbould have little trouble
in securing bis limit. Copies of tbe
regulations are being prepared for
circulation in all parts of Lie prov
British Columbia faces tbe poorest
salmon fishing year in her history,
states J. P. Babcock, assistant commissioner of fisheries. An almost
hopeless fight has been waged by
Hon. Mr. Sloan and Mr. Babcock
for years in an endeavor to save the
industry and the happy announcement is made that at last an international'agreement bas. been reached
by which the Washington state authorities will cooperate with those
of this province in affording the
salmon an opportunity to reach.the
spawning grounds in sufficient num
bers to replenish the badly diminished supply. Fishing will oot be
permitted  in   the waters of Puget
Sound   for a full third of the week
during August.
Meanwhile, Mr. Babcock draws
attention to tbe fact that there are
large stocks of tbe best canned pink
salmon on band, and because of tbe
absurdly low price people are refraining from buying. This stock is
of the highest grade, be declares,
and people will wait a long time before having another opportunity to
buy salmon at so low a figure.
Perhaps tbe greatest task facing
the provincial government is tbat of
municipal finance. Premier Oliver
and Hon. John Hart, minister of
finance, are taking tbe month of
August to prepare a scheme for presentation to the legislature at its fall
sitting. The increased revenue from
the sale of liquor, together with the
return from tbe income tax, promises
to augment the general revenue to
such an extent that a larger portion
may be given to municipalities.
During August delegations from various parts of tbe province will appear before the executive couneil to
assist in drafting a plan that is expected to solve a tangled situation.
One of the most interesting decisions handed down by the bench
in British Columbia with respect to
tbe liquor act waB that given by
Magistrate Jay this week in Victoria,
wben he ruled that a man who has
legally purchased liquor has a right
to decant some of his supply and
carry it on his hip. He should not
be expected to carry a demijohn
around with him if he purchased
the strong stuff in euch a receptacle,
said the magistrate. Officials of
the liquor board say that thiB is in
keeping with tbeir aim to allow the
fullest privileges of the law, so long
as the strict provisions of the act are
live'd up to.

London, August 1 —Dr. Bertoni,

Tbe tree is known as the "wine

Prairie consumers, who buy the
majority of the apples grown in
British Columbia, are fortunate this
year in having such a good supply
to draw from. British Columbia will
gather one of the beat crops the
orchards ever produced within the
next few weeks. Over tbe continent,
however, there is a short apple crop,
according to the latest report of the
United States department of agriculture.
The apple crop of the United
States this year is 69 per cent of the
ten-year average and 50 percent less
than last year. In addition, it is

The story of the discovery of a "wine tree''
in Paraguay sounds rather fanciful. A simple
statoment that a tree had been fonnd that
produced a high-grade wine simply by tapping
its bark might have found many believers, but
when it is added that the wine is naturally
iced, in a tropical climate, even -the credulous
will halt in their acceptance of the story. Our
personal opinion is that Paraguay has developed an immigration publicity ageat who is
about fifty years ahead of anything that has

and of seeking their advice when he ought.
Also he knows when to act on his own initiative. Finally, he is a man you can listen to,
taking stock in whatever he says. You are
sure that he speaks only after due reflection.
He does not talk to the galleries or for the
the purpose of grinding his own ax. He makes
his own suggestions and pleads his own cause
solely in the interest of the business. Such a
man is safe. Important duties may be intrusted to him and he will handle them with diligence, good sense and earnestness. If you are
looking for the quickest route to opportunity,
learn to be this type of man.
The day comes when a man gets no thrill
as his foot touches the self-starter to get motion, or his hand presses a button to get heat,
light or food. He longs to grapple with-life at

How to empty a capsized canoe in deep
water is something that every canoeist should
learn. If the canoe has outside gunwale, swim
at once to the middle of one side, right the
canoe, so that the gunwales are level, aud begin the shake it to and from you, so th&t the
water spills over the side toward you.   If the
canoe has inside gunwales, which prevent the
flrst outrush of water, swim to one end and
jolt it with along sweep.   The inside lip  of
the gunwale will cause a good deal of water
to remain in the canoe, but you can bail it out
as soon as climb aboard.   With an "outwale"
type, an expert, from a sitting position in  the
canoe, can submerge his boat, turn it completely over under water, shake all the water
out and climb back to his original pos tion in
fifteen seconds.. •
Magnetic storms manifest themselves by
their effect on electrical apparatus and are
visible as the aurora polaris. Because such
storms frequently coincide with sun spots, it
is believed that the atmosphere of the earth is
in some way ionized by the snn. The snn spots
are believed to shoot huge charges of electrons
into space as a shotgun discharges shot. When
the earth gets into the path of such a bom-

The United States navy department has put
most of its superdreadnoughts and all of its
oil-burning ships into the Pacific fleet. In gun
power, though not numerically, that fleet is
uow the stronger of the two. There is not
great deal said about it, but it is evident that,
although the government goes not mean to do
anything that could be called a naval threat in
the Pacific, it believes that those are the waters
where thc really big guns are going to be need

The former German Southwest Africa, details for governing which under a mandate to

ten or fifteen miles inland consists of sand
dunes on which grows only the sparsest  of
desert vegetation. Behind the coastal strip of
sand is an upland country that, though it will
not support agriculture, is suited to stock raising.   Hundreds of thousand of cattle, sheep
and goats are raised there.   Ranches are of
tremendous size, as were those of tfie old west
of the United States, containing on the average perhaps twenty-five thousand acres.   In

There is a type of man who is built for success.   He may have genius or just ordinary
talent—no matter. The point is that he always
"arrives." While others plod a weary way, he
gets ahead. Those who take note of his progress often can not account for it. So they say
ne is "lucky." Qr they whisper it about he has
a "pull with the boss." But the secret is deeper than that.   He is a man who- is absolutely
dependable,    says   J.   Ogden   Armour,   the
Chicago packer.   Make "yourself dependable
and you come as  near being indispensable as
any of Us can hope to be. You will be the last

the lirst one he will want to promote to greater responsibilities.   But do  not be deceived.
Dcpeudableness is a rare accomplishment—so
rare that overy executive is on the lookout for
it wherever it may be found.   It is not to be
acquired by wishing for it. It is the prize that
comes from self-mastery. What is a dependable man?   You can tell him by these earmarks: First, he is one you can rely  upon to
do his own thinking. Business requires thinking and someone must do it.   The dependable
man never sidesteps his share nor tries to pass
it along to someone else.   Next, he is one
whose judgment you can trust. He doesn't do

of a treat deal of free advertising
of nature's own device, for on every
boat that comes within sight of the
city, the passengers crowd to the
rails with exclamations of "What is
it? "What can it be?" They find, as
tney draw nearer that the object
which attracted their attention is
not an immense inverted butter
bowl, nor the full moon on a pedestal, but Beacon Hill aflame with the
broom—a sight once seen, with Itl
setting of snow capped mountains
and deep blue sea, never to be forgotten!
The broom is" a low growing bristly bush with scant foliage somewhat
resembling sage brush, something to
be overlooked on ordinary occasions,
but what a transformation when the
flowers appear! Branches, foliage,
stems, are lost in a mass of golden
bloom, the dainty flowers resembling
a miniature sweet pea. Victoria at
the end of May is a pan_d.se. Not
only are the beautiful parks and
carefully kept grounds a riot of
bloom, but every vacant lot, every
old stone wall and wayside is a thing
of beauty. The hawthorne, the tulips,
the violets, the peonies, the wild
rtyacinths are out, the fruit trees are
Just shedding their blossoms, the
roses are in bud, but crowning all,

Events opened on the morning of
May 23rd with patriotic services, and
in the afternoon at the Willows
Park a field meet, under the Public
Schools Sports Association. These
events were hugely enjoyed by the
boys and girls, and by evening the
whole city had apparently wakened
up to what was going on, for "The
Community Sing under the direction of Mr. Frank Sehl, on the steps
of the Parliament Buildings with
the crowds spreading out in all directions on the velvet lawns was a tremendous success. When "0 Canada"
and "Onward Christian Soldiers"
broke from thousands ef throats,
the Festival was an assured success,

citizens In holiday array as well as
many hundreds of visitors gathered
in the golden sunshine on the golden
hill, nnd found Victoria indeed a
good place to be.
The Regatta of the Gorge-Park
was the attraction of tho afternoon,
the men of the visiting Canadian
fleet being of splendid help hejv, and
adding a unique touch to the occasion. The Navy entered a launch

cured nine cases of blindness caused
by atrophy, will soon be demon-

Dr. Pond, who discovered the serum, said the method of cure was to

be successful unless there was a

Independence on a Fruit Farm
Gathering Raspberries.
In the heart of the small-fruit
country on thc north side of the
Fraser River in British Columbia,
where every landowner has his commercial patch of raspberries, small
or large, one of tho best examples
of what a periectly developed, well •
run fruit farm on a small acreage
can be, ls the Maple Crest Farm at
Hutzic belonging to Mr, A, B. Dann.
Mr. Dann is an Old Country gardener and was brought up on his
father's fruit farm of 200 acres ln
Kent: s* the conditions for fmit-
growlns are much the same In British Columbia as ln England, his experience is his greatest asset out
here. He believes that thore ls far
more profit in the careful and thorough cultivation of the small patch
than in the big patch carelessly looked after.
The soil in this district ls naturally
rich, well-drained and therefore particularly well-adapted for small fruit
but Mr. Dann uses farm-yard manure when possible and plenty of
chemical fertilizers as well.
„ H«„has an acre in strawberries,
the "Magoon" variety, which are
best suited to the district, and ln a
good year realizes |1,200 on these;
half of this must be allowed for expenses of picking, packing, crating,
cartage, etc., so that he clears a
profit ot $600.
He has over an acre of gooseberries, mostly grown from cuttings
which he stock himself, "Pearl"
which are the earliest, "Oregon
Champion," the mala crop and "Jocelyn, the late ones. There are 1,100
bushes ta full bearing which average • gross return of $1 per bush,
more than half of which Is clear
Gooseberries, of course, are far
cheaper to grow than strawherries
because like all bush fruit they last
for a long term of years without
seeding renewal.
Mr. Dann has over an acre of raspberries, "Cuthberts" and an unknown
variety mucb grown in the district
that surpasses even the "Cuthberts"
for earliness and heavy yields. Three
tons to the acre Is an average crop
or 300 crates for which the lowest

but the crop ls heavier, lasts longer
nnd the expenses are less, so that a
good $600 is cleared on these also.1

Oold storage faculties are abac-,

this can only be met by every grower joining tiie exchange in his district. Last year the Hatzic Fruit
and Mercantile Exchange shipped
six carloads of rasps to Winnipeg
and not one orate was spoilt '

Dann that he saw several crates of

Ottawa, August 2.—Tbe British
Columbia Telephone oompany,
which applied to the railway cjm
