In bis prime one of tbe greatest

The Earl of Ducie, 94, is rounding out his sixty eight years of service in tbe bouse of commons, along

Unwise Selling
Early this week Calgary fruit
men were agitated by the sale of
crated Mcintosh Red apples at 5c to
15c a box below what tbe Wealthies
in crates were selling for. A leading
jobbing house received the Macks
and we feel disposed to remark that
their judgment in seliing under tbe
market was not tbe acme of salesmanship nor will this act make
crated apples popular. We noticed
these apples first in grocerterias and
then in the windows of the leading
grocers. The apples came from tbe
Okanagan and although a little
small and off color for the variety
tbey were the best apple buy in
town. At least onemore car of crated
Macks were sold to meet this cut,
and this time the apples were fair
sized and well colored, says the
Fruit Markets Bulletin.
The effect on an unsteady market
has been to lower prides all round
Brokers asking $1.25 for crated
Wealthies f.o.b. shipping point, are
met witb an offer of 60c and 65c—
[■scarcely enough to pay for box and
picking. Tbis will have a decided
influence in stopping consignments,
also tbe rush to sell apples before tbe frost makes shipping
Tbere is no need for stampeding
this market or any otber with apples. We predict that in thirty days
things will clear up and prices will
be normal with a good demand. Advices from Yakima and Wenatehee
show a healthy state of business
there. Tbey have no hope for any
Canadian business until after Christmas, when tbey anticipate Canadian
apples will be cleaned up. We think
this guess about right, unless our
shippers get together to prevent
cleaning up before tbe best of market prices of tbe season are ruling.
Washington, Oct. 4.— During
last days of September temperatures
will be moderate in all tbe northern
Rocky, northern Pacific slope and
northern plains sections, reaching
highest degrees near September 29
Conditions will favor about average
rains in places wbere fair amount of
moisture bas occurred tbe past sum

eastward will cross continent in four
or five days. While great storms are
not expected a sharp increase in the
storm forces may be looked for near
October 3 to 6 and most rains near
those dales.
Off on the Wrong Foot
The principal of a certain sohool
prided himself on the speed with
wbich bis pupils went through the
fire drill. When he asked them,
•'What would you children do if I
told you there was a fire in the
building?" tbe answer be had taught
them rolled with astonishing glib'
dess from their tongues.
One day Dr. Henry van Dyke was
to lecture to tbe pupils. I introducing him the principal asked, "Now,
children, what would you do if
told you Dr. Henry van Dyke was
to lecture here today?"
Apd three hundred voices ie<
sponded in singsong, "We would
rise promptly, put away our books
and then quietly and without disorder, but as quickly as possible,
file out to the street."

The Rersonal Property
Tax and Half the ProBta
From Liquor Stores Will
Go to Municipalities
Victoria, Oct. 5.—Municipalities
to collect and use the personal prop •
erty tax, and to receive half the
profits from the government liquor
business; the government to increase
its grant for education.
Tbis will be the prop ual of tba
provincial government in response
to the demand of the municiptlities
for action to relieve their financial
difficulties, according to Mayor J.
I. Johnston, who has wired from
Victoria to New Westminster as foi'
"Evecutive of Union has just con
eluded a two hour session with the
premier and finance minister, with
very satisfactory results. Tbe proposition is that all personal property
taxes in future be collected and used
by the cities and municiplies in
which same is located. Half liquor
profits, approximately one million
dollars annually. An increase per
capita for education. To use premier's words, tbe most satisfactory
conference ever held between government and executive of Union of
Britisb, Columbia Municipalities."
The allocation of half the liquor
profits to municipalities was the
government's offer last session. It
is now to be supplemented by tbe
privilege of collecting a personal
property tax and by an increased
grant for scbaols.

Among the national legislative measures in
, which the American  Automobile association
is interested ,1s what is known as the federal
motoring reciprocity bills. BricHy, the passage
of these bills wiil make it possible for motorists to travel anywhere in the United States
for indfinite periods with none  but a home
state license tag. At present all states do  not
grant yearly reciprocity  to tho other states»
ai ia nuty visttiag nr,:>_'i.**,. va li-ni-u'l t) a
fifteen-day  touring; others give  thirty days .
others sixty days, while  Maryland does not
permit a District of Columbia motorist to   enter that state without a Maryland license, thus
imposing an unfair  restriction on  legal   residents of the Unite 1 States.    Also som3 states
have burdensom9 and annoying   registratio n
regulations.   The District of Columbia, par -
ticularLy,has a new regulation requiring visiting
mortorists to register with the Washington po-
liee if the visit extends over three days. Passage of these motoring reciprocity bills would
obviate all of these nuisances, unfair require-
ments and un-Amorioan regulations.
It's all buncombe—the agitation now spreading over England against athletics for girls because of tho serious after effects in childbirth
and motherhood, says Oeorge 0. Diehl, president of thc Amateur Athletic assoociation. It
is true, of course, that many women do have
trouble in childbirth, but it is unfair to say
that it is because of athletics, Athletic training for woman; it develops just the muscles of
the abdomen and the lower part of the back
that she '& compelled to use in this crisis
Overindulgence, overstraining—that is another thing altogether. I do not believe in
that. I have fought excesses all my life. You
read more and more of the necessity of resorting to the Caesarian methods. It is because so
many women have undeveloped muscles of the
abdomen and lower part of the back. It is because these women have never been called
u pon to do any work, to make any effort of
h eir own. A certain amount of energy is inherited, of conrsd; but it is inherited frtjpa
generations of ancestors of men and women
who have worked.
England has an unemployment problem
worse than ours. Among the untoward results of the condition is the further confusion
of municipal finances in the larger cities. Payments for unemployment relief are being made
on a comparatively liberal scale; some of the
London boroughs are paying twenty or twenty-
two dollars a week to heads of families, which
is in many cases more than the man would be
earning if he were at work. That has of course
a tendency to encourage idleness, even when
work can be had, and it means either heavily
increased tax levies or a default of the boroughs on the money they are under obligation
to pay to the London county council for municipal purposes. The borough of Poplar in
eastern London is some $1,500,000 in arrears
and the members of the borough council are
under jail sentsnee for failure to pay its
share of the municipal expenses?
A special program te inculcate the humane
treatment of animals by children has been
launched in thirty-five , public schools of the
lower East side of New York city. Instruction
in humane treatment of animals and
birds became compulsory in the curriculum of
the public schools of New York state by an
act passed in April, 1917. The special program
in the thirty-five schools was arranged by the
board of education with the cooperation of the
S. P. C. A. In tho fall a first prize and two
second prizes will be given to each school for
the best ompositions on what the writer has
been able to do to help animals during thc
snmmer. The older people are absolutely irresponsible. But the children, ah, that's a differ-
|,ont matter! It has been traditional that children at a certain age will rob birds' nests, torture cats, tie cans to dogs'tails, etc. It has
been found that that age in childhood responds just as eagerly, inquisitively, productively to the opposite ofthe old tradition, i.e.,
humaneness to animals instead inhumaneness.
A jest's prosperity lies in the ear of him
that hears it, never in the tongue of him that
makes it. So, to quote a quaint desk motto,
"Always do right; it will please some and astonish everyone else."

The two hundred and seventy
miles of canoeing down the Missip

forests, slipping into one exquisite
Mm after another and making 35
portages, is accounted the acme of
oat-door pleasure by those who
have been so fortunate as to have
brayeled this Ontario water trail.
The start is usually made from
Biscotasing, 8 miles west of Sudbury, where outfits and guides can-.
be obtained. This route passes
through Bisco and Spanish Lakes,
then into Spanish River where one

Bpanish and Canoe Lakes and several lakelets intervene ere Missis-

sauga River, is reached. From here
Um travel is all down stream
through wildly beautiful scenery.
Tall spires of pines reach heaven-
Ward above the solid wall of forest
that lines either bank. Moose, deer
and other wild animals often

ease at the passing strangers.
Th«y are seldom molested and are
quite fearless and present splendid
targets for the camera. Excellent
fishing is at hand the whole distance—speckled trout, lake trout,
baas, pike and muskics are so
plentiful that one seldom casts
Without getting a bite. Pretty
little streams come stealing through

ings into the Misslssauga and to
coax the travelers to leave the big
river and seek the hidden charms cf
tho hinterland.. The side trips often
lead to waters over which white
men have never fished.
The majority of the portages are
| just long enough to give you a
chance to get the kinks out of your
calves and are a pleasure rather
than a hardship. The portage at
Aubrey Gorge affords a wonderful
sight, that of the river sun_-_T.fr and
swirling tWough n quarter-mile
gorge and then marking a 107 foot
leap over a cliff.   It takes one and
a half hoars to shoot the Forty-
mile Rapids, which is done with ns
more effort than reclining in tha
canoe nnd using the paddle now and
then to keep it in the channel. Tha
portage around Mississaugua Tunnel is made by team over a good
road that parallels tiie narrow cot

river churns its way for three
miles. '

Meeting Provincial Needs
The great increase in the number of telephone stations in this province means that
the telephone subscriber is able to reach
many more people by wire, and consequently his service is of greater value.
* During the past year or two expansion
has been marked in all parts of Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland,
but adequate facilities have been installed
both in regard to outside plant and inside
equipment to meet the needs ofthe various
communities. The object of the company is to give a telephone service second
to none. The B. C. Telephone Company
being a British Columbia concern all
through, has a real interest in provincial

It is officially announced that
Canadian Pacific Steamships Limited has bean definitely chosen as
the new name for the fopnerOom-
of the Board of Dlreotors. and the
organisation und personnel will remain as at present. It is understood that this is a further step
in the desire to maintain the closest
relations between the railway and
the steamships.
The Canadian Paciflo has a large
fleet of ships on the Atlantic Ocean,
the Pacific Ocean, on the Great
Lakes and on several of the lakes in
British Columbia.
In summer the Canadian ports of
the Atlantic service are Montreal
and Quebec; in winter the port is
St. John, N.B. The ports in Qreat
Britain and on the Continent are
Liverpool, Glasgow, Southampton.
Havre. Antwerp and Danzig. The
Canadian Pacific and the Navl-
gazione Generate Italiana operate a
combined service direct from Canada to Genoa, Naples and Trieste.
The steamships of the Atlantic
service are Empress of Britain (15,-
857 tons). Empress of France (18,-
600 tons). Empress of Scotland
(25,000 tons), MInnedosa (14,000
tons), Melita (14,000 tons), Metagama (12,600 tons), Victorian (11,-
000 tons), Tunisian (10,600 tons),
Pretorlan (7,000 tons), Scandinavian
(12,100 tons), Corsican (11,500
tons), Scotian (10,600 tons), Sicilian
(7,860 tons): Montreal (Italian service) is 0,500 tons. Three steamships are nearing completion or being fitted out, the Montcalm, Monit-
clare, and Montrose, of 16,000 tons
each. (Ships carrying freight only
are the Bosworth, Dunbridgo, Both-
well, Bolingbroke and Batsford).
The quickest time across the
Pacific Is maintained by the Empress
of Russia (16,850 tons), Empress of
Asia (16,850 tons), Empress of
Japan (6,000 tons), Monteagle (6,-
160 tons) and these will be augmented very soon by the Empress
of Canada (22,000 tons), which is
now almost ready for service; the
Empress of India (17,600 tons), and
the Empress of China (19,000 tons).
Regular passenger service it between Vancouver and Yokohama,
Kobe. Nagasaki, Moji, Shanghai,
Manila ana Hong Kong. In addition
there is a supplementary freight
service to Singapore, etc., by the
steamships Methven and Wattawa.
The St. Lawrence Route.
Additions are being made to the
Atlantic fleet to meet the increase
in traffic and the requirements of
the present.
The fame of the St. Lawrence route
is spreading to such an extent that
many wealthy American tourists and
business men are commencing to use
i this route in preference to those
from American Atlantic ports. The
chief feature of attraction, apart
from the comfort and Bervice of the
Canadian steamers, is the novelty in
th^/ ': that shins olyiM between

trip within six days, during which
time they are only out of eight of
land two and a half days. The
trip up the St. Lawrence with its
beautiful scenery, the absence of
sea-sickness and the perfect organisation all make a powerful appeal.
Passengers ln the first and Becond
classes, pass the immigration inspection while sailing up the river
from Father Point, also have their
steamer tickets exchanged for railway transportation, and their lug-
8age examined and checked, so that
ley walk from the steamer to
special trains in waiting, and may
be on their way to their home destinations within one and a half
hours after the steamer is docked.
The Empress of Scotland.
The Empress of Scotland. 25,000
gross tonnage, will be tha largest
ship to enter the. St. Lawrence when
she runs to Quebec next summer,
She was purchased a few months
ago by the C.P.R. from the Reparations Commission, and was formerly

The Empress of Canada.
The new C. P. R. liner, the oil
burning Empress of Canada is built
especially for the Paciflt service.
The appointments will be the finest
and most luxurious possible to-day,
with particular regard to the C. P.
fl. standard of "Safety, Speed, Comfort."
She has an overall length of 653
feet, Is 87 feet, 9 inches in breadth

The cargo equipment Is of - the
most modern type as well, the cargo

Throughout the ship particular attention has been devoted to the fact
that the "Empress of Canada" ls for
Trans-Pacific and semi-tropical service; therefore the rooms are large
and airy und specially designed.
The "Empress of Canada" has
bcen preceded by two other oil

The Princes* Louise.
No event in the history of shipbuilding on tho Pacific coast has
caused more interest than the
launching of the new Canadian Pacific Railway coastwise passenger
ship, Princess Louise, which took to
the water recently it the Wallace
Shipyards, North Vancouver. The
launching was attended by the usual
ceremony. The yards were as usual
thrown open to the genera! public.
The silver band oi the Wallace Shipyards was In attendance to play the
ship into the water. The Princess
Louise is in an advanced stage of
construction, and in a very short
time after launching will be ready
to hand over to her owners.
The steamer Princess Royal took
the invited guests to the Wallace
yards. Four hundred invited guests
were present at the launching of the
Princess Louise. The ship presents
a gorgeous spectacle in her blade
and red hull, with white superstructure. A band of gilt encircles the
ship, and the letters "Princess
Louise" show up prominently.
The Princess Louise is a British
Columbia product, und it will cost
about $1,600,000° to complete the
ship. Every effort has been put
forth by the builders to make the
ship the equal of any vessel of
similar sice and construction on the
coast. It waa indeed a compliment
to British Columbia and the shipbuilders thst the Canadian Pacific
Railway decided that no better work
for the same financial outlay could
be done anywhere else. It Is a well
known fact that the big corporation
aims to secure the best in any such
?urchase, and British Columbia is
tiling the order. In all probability
Old Country yards will never again
build coastwise passenger steamers
for uae on ths British Columbia
The Princess Louise will be
the finest ship of the B. C. Coast
Service. Only one ship is longer.
The vessel Is 880 feet overall, 48
feet beam, 18.6 deep, 4,200 gross
tow. She is single screw and with
a ifitn horse-power engine which
will develop a speed of ncariy eighteen knots. The Charlotte Ib 12 feet
longer, but her tonnage is 500 tons
less than ths Louise. With the exception of the steel and the hard-
Tfoods and glass, the materials which
are going Into the construction of
the ship were supplied ln British
Columbia.   When completed the ship

have relegated car stoves and oil
lamps to the scrap pile; steel construction throughout, underframen
and car bodies, steel tyred wheels
with continuous fastenings are
standard for all up to date passenger
equipment; air signalling devices replace the old bell cord and engine
eab gong; scores of other accessories,
too numerous to mention, are now
pert and parcel of all modern rolling stock, all specially designed to
reach the desired goal—"Maximum
Protection to Life and Property."
The greatest and most costly improvements have undoubtedly been
earned out in connection with the
permanent way and signalling systems. Steel rails of constantly increasing weight have superceded
light iron ones: split switches have
banished the old stub switch; elaborate interlocking devices are installed at all points where railways
eross at grade.
Everything tending to increased
efficiency and safe operation, regardless of cost, has been done to
an extent hardly appreciated by tha
travelling public generally.
In this great general advancement
seemingly small matters have not
heen overlooked, special attention
haa been given to minor details conducive to the desired result —
In addition to the usual "flag-
gttwr" by trainmen with hand lamp
and flag, the emergency signals
most commonly used are the fusee
and the track torpedo or fog-signal
it is generally called across the
emitting fur __ uuiimte period nd
and yellow light of great brilliancy,
is especially effective on dark and
stormy nights, but not equally valuable in daylight and in foggy weather, and not as popular among practical railwaymen as the Track Torpedo, which is more easily carried.
promptly applied and meeting all
conditions by day as well as tar
Up to the present time the track
torpedo appealed to one sense only,
namely, Rearing, and usually consisted of a pellet of a detonating
compound, exploding with a loud report when crushed oy tbe wheel of
a locomotive or car passing over It
—but not sensitive enough to be
exploded by light hand-cars or sec-
ion-men's lorries.
A new type of torpedo called the
'Meteor" has recently been adopted
by the Canadian Pacific Railway for
use on its System from Atlantic to
Pacific. The unreliable method of
attaching the torpedo to the rail
head by soft metal bands pessed
into position, but frequently displaced, has been greatly improved
by using a spring rail-clip of tempered steel or spring brass—gripping
the rail head firmly and promptly
applied. Furthermore, assurance
has been made trebly sure—the new
torpedo appeals to three senses instead of one, not only hearing, but
seeing and smelling. It not only produces a loud report on detonation,
bijt simultaneously a brilliant flash
and pungent smell.
The new torpedo is completely
waterproof—it will stand any atmospheric conditions of heat, moisture
and frast. It has been subjected to
one hundred hours immersion and
one hours in moist steam at 120 deg.
Fahrt. without deterioration and has
been used where the temperature
was many degrees below Zero with
complete success. Special tests have
been carried out to ascertain its
holding power when placed in position on the rail, and tor flying particles likely to cause injury to bystanders, with completely satisfactory remits.
