The warm wave of this, storm will
cover all the northwestern part of
the continent, and its center will
cross to the east side of meridian
90 near June 15. The center of the
low or storm wave . is expected to
cross meridian 90 near St. Louis
about June 16. Not much of a cool
wave will follow, but the preceeding
warm wave will bring higher than
usual temperatures.
Rains from this Florin will be
much less tban wilt bave come from
tbe storms earlier in June. Their
distribution will be mucb the same
as for earlier rains of tbis month.
Storm forces of middle of J une will
be moderate, but will increase toward end of month. No hail is ex
peered during the week 'entering
on June 15.
Some small unimportant warm
waves, storm waves and cool waves
will come during the week centering
on June 11, but they are not worth
a write-up* At date of this bulletin
the great storm period predicted for
first part of June is expected to be
of considerable interest, and after its
cool wave passes temperatures are
expeeted t • make a general gradual
but great rise, and good crop weather will be tbe result.
During the first part of week centering on June 15 a general storm
will appear in the Alaskan northwest. The word storm does not
mean danger; it means the same but
is better tban to say than weather
disturbance. These storm are one of
the all-important weather features.
Thinks Peeping Tom
Would Lose His Job
With Present Styles
Vancouver, July 4.—Desire ttr
emulate "Peeping Tom of Coventry," landed George H. Bland in tbe
police toils on a charge of attempting to enter a house. Bland was
found at a window of a residence by
Detectives Itnlah and Alcox, and
placed in cuslody.
Investigations carried out by the
officers showed that the accused was
imbued with a wish to look through
half-raised blinds,' his counsel, J. A.
Russell, explaining tbat his client
suffered from "peeping dementia."
"Not mucb justification for that
complaint in view of present day
fashions," said Magistrate Shaw, in
allowing the accused his freedom.

ation*. the regular collegiate degrees
are conferred   under   charter from
tbe state of New York.    The move

the establishment of 300  local   as

development of summer schools in
American   universities, and to tbe
establishment of numerous  corre
spondence schools.
Chautauqua Institution
How far the Chautauqua Institu
tion has drifted from its original
mission can readily be judged from
tbe following brief history:
The Chautauqua literary and
scieneific circle was organized in
1878 by John H. Vincent and Lewis
Miller. Tbe distinctive mission of
this 'circle" is stated to be "to direct the reading habits of grown
people, both those who received tbe
best tbat the educational institutions
oan give, and desire to pursue an
'after school' course, and those who
for any reason failed to receive a
college educarion in early life, but
who now desire to secure to them

outlook upon the world and life, and
to develop tbe habit of close connected persistent thinking." Tbe
system comprehends a four years'
course of home reading and study,
to be pursued under tbe advisory
supervision of the officers of the in-
stitution.on the completion of which
diplomas are awarded. Posi graduate
and special courses are also provided
for those who desire to prosecute
particular branches of study beyond
the limits laid down in the regular
course, On the tenth anniversary of
the Circle's organization, it was
stated tbst about 200,000 persons,
scattered through all parts of the
world, belonged to tbe asisociation;
most of tbem are members of
local circles formed in accordance
with the general plan of the scheme
Sunshine Valley
Is Ubiquitous
Sunshine Valley in tbis district is
not tbe only pebble on tbe beacb.
Apparently the name is or has been
contagious. We clip the following
dispatch from the New Y. rk World
of May 30:
Sistersville, W. Va., May 29 —
Because of a cat famine, Sunshine
VKttey," tbis county, is overrun witb
rats and mice. Hundreds of dollars'
worth of wheat, oate, corn and foodstuffs had been destroyed.
Tbere used to be cats in Sunshine
V.xlley, but unplagued by rats and
mice and annoyed by kitty's pen
chant for raising large and frequent
families, the owners apparently got
rid of their pets. Then came the
pests. Tbe losses suffered have been
Tbe few cats still left in Sunshine
Valley are watched with jealous
care. Everett Kimble, one of the
lucky owners, has had so many en-
tieaties for bis cat that he bas resorted to the use of numbered
cbesks so applicants will get kitty
in the right order.
News of the City
The Dominion Chautauqua closed
its season in Ibis city tonight. It is
not likely to reappear here io tbe
near future As was stated in a recent issue of Tbe Sun, the present
organisation is composed of commercialized amateures. Not one
of the individual attractions presented here could go into a city or
town and draw an audience of fitly
people on its merits. That is why
tbe aggregation has to bave a guarantee from the citizens, thereby taking absolutely no risk and making
the guarantors do the publicity
work gratis for them. After completing Thursday night's show here
tbe company wanted to "yump the
job," and it was.only when an at
tachment of their tent stared tbem
in the face tbat they concluded to
carry out tbeir contract. As it was,
Friday night the tent was dark. But
this morning, immediately after
breakfast—a very nice theater hour
in the west, where variety is the
spice of life—last night's bill, "The
Rivals," was presented, and tonight
the concluding entertainment will
be given. "Tbe Rivals" is one
of the classic English dramas.
Those wbo have had the good fortune of seeing it presented by a
competent company, headed by
Bome of tbe old-time stars, can im<
agine witb wbat rapture tbe audi
ence, wbile digesting their breakfast, received tbe play this morning
as presented by a oast possessing
no special aptitude for dramatic art.
There is too much faking and money-
grabbing about the methods of the
Chautauqua, and not enough of
talent and art.
A couple of days ago Provincial
Constable Killam confiscated thirty-
one cases of liquor from the Globe
Export Liquor company on tbe
ground, we were told,tbat the house
was doing business after business
hours. The proprietor, Mr. Friedman, entered an action for the recovery of the liquor, and at the trial
before Magistrate McCallum today
tbe liquor was ordered returned to
the original owner. That is all we
know about tbis case. We wi-h we
knew more.
Expects Copper Prices
"To Slowly Increase
Although there is a copper sur-
plu s of 375,000,000 pounds avail
able for bome consumption in the
United States, this is being deploted
at the rate of about 50,000,000
per month, according to A. Q.
White,   metal    expert   of Boston,
Refinery output in America is at
present about 40,000,000 pounds
per month which about equals current exports, he states. Home consumption is being almost entirely
taken care of from reserve stocks.
With this condition of affairs existing, he expects 15 cent copper very
shortly, and 18-cent copper before
many months have passed.
At present copper in British Columbia is slowly climbing in price.
Tbe current price is about 13A cents
per pound for spot and about a quarter of a cent a pound higher for future deliveries. Not long ago it was
down to 12 cents. When the 14
cent level is reached the wages of the
employees of tbe Granby Mining,
Smelting and Power compony at the
Anyox smelter will go up 25 cents
per day. The smelter employees
work on a sliding scale goyerned by
the price of copper. About two
months ago wages were reduced 25
cents per day as the result of copper
falling below the 14-cent level.

Emptiness and Gossip
Long ago Lord Tennyson in "Tbe
Princess" advised women to drink
deeply of the fountain of knowledge
thot the sins of emptiness—gossip,
spite and slander—might die.
In tbese days women are supposed
to bave brains and intelligence, and
much to occupy their minds. But is
it only suppositiou?
At a recent reception in about
half an hour, no less tban six people's reputations were pulled to
shreds, ons of them no longer living
to defend himself.
One much-maligned person happened to be well known to someone
present as an auster businessman of
unimpeachable character, and reali/.
ing the untold barm a thoughtless
wicked woman's tongue was glibly
doing, ebe naturally refuted tbe
charges indignantly. Of course
everyone else who had any sense discountenanced the tales of the gossip,
but the wickedness and the danger
of the underhand attack appalled
no one.
Whose reputation is safe when
such an unscrupulous tongue ripples
off a pack of libellous falsehoods to
entertainment those around ber?
Gossip is truly the deadly sin of
emptiness, and any woman who
wisaes to be respected will not only
refrain from unkindly discussing
otber folk but will refuse to listen to
slanderous remarks.
Victoria, June 4.—With information as a result of which be will recommend to rhe government new irrigation schemet in tbe interior so
that settlers may develop their
properties, thereby inducing more
people to come into tbe province
that tbe proportionate tax burden
of everybody may be ligbtened.Hon.
T.DPattillo , minister of lands,
returned to the parliament buildings
today from bis inspection trip
through the southern interior.
"I made the trip to the interior
specially to look over irrigation matters," Hon, Mr. Pattullo said. "Having in view the many other commitments of the government, I propose to recommend to tbe government that we shall go as far as we
can in rendering assistance to the
settlers who are developing tbeir
properties, but wbo must have water
to assure success.
"I investigated a number of districts and in view of the fact that we
require more settlers in the country,
lt seems to me the best way to secure getting them bere is to properly
take oare of the people wbo are at*
ready here. With this end in view
we must go as far as we can in safeguarding the interests of tbose wbo
are already settled on tbe land. A
satisfied settler is the best advertisement for a new settler."
Hon. Mr. Pattullo found crop
conditions in tbe interior promising.
"What waB equally important,the
people   are  in   an   optimistic and
buoyant mood," he went oo. "This
year   there   had been exceptionally

FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 1021
A knowledge of one's country is one of the
first essentials of an education, even of those
who are unable to proceed to tho higher
courses. With "lie amount of literature available on Canada and its nataral resouices,thero
is little reason for Canadians not being fully
conversant with the many advantages the Dominion possesses.

that a careless employer is reflected in a careless employee, which largely accounts for the
fact that in altogether too many cases the
cost of public works is largely in excess of
qhe cost of such works when privately carried
out. Many instances might be cited of losses
due to either wilful damage or carelessness by
the people themselves. In an eastern city recently a sewer became blocked by the peposit-
ing of material which could not be carried
away. Many cellars were flooded and a cost
of $30,000 entailed. These losses are reflected
in the tax rate, and just so long as so much of
tho public revenue must be utilized to replace
or repair the effects of neglect or disregard of
public property, just so long will the tax rate
continue to increase.

Few persons realize how much shadows
help to judge the form of solid objects and
how much we depend upon them. In looking
at photographs of the moon, for example, it is
only by the shadows that tell us whether what
we see is a hill or a hole. If tho shadow falls
away from the light, the eye sees a hole; if it
falls toward the light, a projection. But the
eye is easily fooled. Showing a picture of the
moon in which the light comes from the left
immediately after showing a number of pic
tures in which it comes from the right will
change a crater into a mountain peak even to
the experienced eye: a new example, pernaps,

During the past two or 'three weeks The
.Sun has had a great deal to say about the
Chautauqua; and the Chautauqua, we have
been informed, has returned the compliment
by saying something about The Sun. Today
we print, a brief sketch of that organization in
order to contrast the laudable aims of the
founders of the institution with the manner
in which the Chautauqua shows are now
conducted in this province. The originators
of the Chautauqua never intended it to be a
commercialized traveling vaudeville show,
but as an institution for the advancement of
According to the recent census in the United States, 13,7011,087 persons who now live
in that country were born in other countries.
That means about one in e*ght of the population, a proportion, as almost everyone will admit, as large as it cau safely be. The effect of
the war in checking immigration is shown in
the fact that the foreign-born population has
increased less than 3 per cent since 1010,
though the country as a whole gained something like 15 per cent. There were in 1020,
1,683,208 natives of Germany in the United

A year or more ago Mrs. William B. Leeds,
the widow of a rich American business man
of Richmond, Indiana, married Prince Chris
topher of Greece, who is a brother of King
Constantino's. She was originally Miss Nannie
May Stowart, but she is now known as the
Princess Anastasia and is cousin—by marriage
—to a groat number of the crowned and uncrowned heads of Europe. Her son, also
named William 15. Leeds, is now reported to
bu engaged to the Princess Xcnia, who is the
daughter of a Russian grand duke and King
Constantino's sister, Princess Marie. No
American family has ever before allied itself
so conspicuously with actual royalty, but it
must be remembered that the late Mr. Leeds
bore the courtesy title of the "Tin-plate
King." That perhaps gives his family a better
right than most to marry princes and princesses

In our towns and cities one can not go far
without observing conditions of neglect and
carelessness due entirely to the lack of nter-
est of the people themse[ves. The average
citizen feels that once he has paid his taxes he
has fulfilled his duty, and the city can do the
rest. He overlooks the fact that the city is but
an aggregation of units, of which he is one;
that any improvements or maintenance charges
must be paid for by these units and ho must
bear his share.   It is a well known axiom
Where is William D. Haywood, the notorious leader of the I.W.W.? He was out on bail,
awaiting a decision of the United States su
preme court on his appeal against the sentence
of the lower court that sent him to jail for seditious practices during the war. The decision
when it came was against him, and he should
have presented himself at once for incarceration at Leavenworth penitentiary. But he is
missing, his bail bond is forfeited, and no one
seems toknow where he is. One report has him
in Russia,engagedin minister of propaganda for
the soviet government. Another has him sim
ply "visiting" the Bolsheviki and represents him
as likely to return when he learns he is wanted. The police believe he is somewhere hiding
in the States. Many other members of the I,
W.W. were sentenced at the same time, a
number of whom are, like Haywood, fugitives
from justice.

With trade reviving, every reliance may
be placed on the telephone, which is such a
principal factor in industrial development.
British Columbia is particularly fortunate in
that telephone lines radiate from the principal
cities to all points, so that instant means of
communication are always available, .
The duplicate submarine between Point
Grey and Nanaimo was laid this month,
doubling the facilities for telephoning between the mainland and Vancouver Island.
New long distance lines have been built on
Vancouver Island and throughout the lower
Fraser Valley, both north and south of the
river. Very few applications are unfilled be-
Cfinse of lack of facilities, so that the telephone,
always taken for granted, will not fail you.

Head of Railway Expects U. S. Readjustment of Wages and Rates to React Ob
Canada. j
At the annual meeting of "the C.P.R.' i
Mr. li \V. Beatty, President of the
Company, made the following interesting statement regarding the affairs of the Company:
"Tbe operations of tbe Company
during tbe year, the Annual Report
for which is now submitted for your
approval, bave been conducted under
conditions wbicb were so exceptional
as to costs, as to make it unique In
tho Company's history, as well as in
tbe transportation annals of Canada, The shareholders aro aware of
tho general conditions wblcb so
strongly Influenced tho results for
the year ln question but I doubt If a
full appreciation of them ls possible
savo with a very Intimate knowlcdgo
of tho details, tho aggrcgato of
which is so vividly reflected upon
tho Company's revenues. Tho cost
of labor, materials aud fuel reached
their peak during tbo year and extraordinary added costs, such as
blgh exchange and taxes, added
their quota to tbe expenses.
"The back pay which accrued beforo the increased freight and passenger rates becamo effective
amounted to a little less then seven
million dollars and thc additional
amount required to pay exchange on
coal and otber purchases, to four
million dollars. Tho total, including
provision for income taxes, Involved
additional costs of approximately
thirteen million, five hundred thousand dollars which wero charged to
tho expenses of tho year. All tllfese
extraordinary and abpormal expenses the Company was able to
absorb and pay its fixed charges and
usual dividends. This result was
only possible because of tbe excellent character ot the Company's
facilities provided by you in previous
years at large capital expense and
the possession by lt of equipment
used wltb tbe greatest possible
efficiency, wblcb enabled tbe heavy
fall movement ' of traffic to be1
effected witb a despatch wbicb has
rarely, I think, been equalled. I
cannot speak too highly of the loyal
and effective work done by tbe officers and men ot the Company, without wbose efforts such favorable results could not have been secured.
'*VMle tbe condition of the Company's property has never been permitted to deteriorate, due to the
provision made for its upkeep to a
bigh standard tn pre-war years, there
were expenditures wbicb had to be
incurred in 1920 which, except for
the intensive use ot equipment and
the shortage of labor and materials
during tbe War, would either not
bave been included in the expenses
for that year ln their entirety or
would not hare had to be incurred
at all. Tbe Company's equipment
was put to a great strain from 1914
to the snd of 1919, and both freight
and passenger business—including
troop and coolie movements—was so
extensive tbat the usual shopping
programme bad to be reduced because every unit was required ln
actual service. Wben these movements ceased, repairs to equipment
and renewals, of course, became extensive and, wbilo I should have preferred that the work could have been
postponed until price conditions were
more favorable, it was necessary,
unless the Company were to suffer in
prestige, that the work should be
gone on wltb as soon as possible.
"About tho middle of December n
pronounced contraction tn business
took place, resulting in diminished
traffic of all descriptions. This depression still continues, but by rigid
economies tbe net results for thc
first three months of tbls year are
somewhat in excess of tliose of the
corresponding period of last year
notwithstanding the greatly increased costs of labor prevailing in
"As you aro aware, the parity of
conditions which has existed in
United States and Canada resulted In
the forced adoption In Canada of
what is known as the "McAdoo
Award' and amendments and of the
award of the United States Labor
Board made in August, 1920. Increases In wages may bavo been
Justified at that time by the abnormal
increase In the cost ot living, but
they wero accompanied by alter
atlons in working conditions of such
u character as lo Impose heavy and
ln tbe view of the companies, unnecessary burdens on the transportation igcncles of Nortli America
The combined effect (l|* them bas boon
to greatly Increase the cost of the
operations of all companies. The
Conditions     wblcb     rendered     lliein
necessary being rapidly ameliorated,
It is apparent ihat readjustments
will bo essential. The effort to secure reductions in wages and alterations in working conditions lias ttl-
roBdy been commenced In the United
States and Is proceeding iu a sane,
orderly and legal manner. Wlial Is
accomplished there will undoubtedlj
reflect on tbe rales of pay and work:
tig conditions In Canada. These Increases In wage scales, while not the
enlsi  element which entered Into the
increase in freight and passenger
rates, were still a very outstanding
and potent factor and when the readjustment of wages takes place it
is only right that the rate situation
should be again re-considered with
a view to revision downward. The
rates are high but I am not one of
those who believe that the existing
scale of wages and consequent higb
freights is responsible for the present business depression; the causes
of that go much deeper than the mere
standard of wages paid to any given
class and are world wide. While reduction in wages dees carry with it
a reduced purchasing power in the
individual, such reduced purchasing
power is not represented by the
difference In the scales of wages be
cause of the general decrease in
prices of the commodities to be purchased. Nevertheless, a reduction in
botb wages and freight rates would
bave a pronounced and beneficial
effect on tbe general sentiment in
tbe country through the encouragement it would give and the confidence that normal conditions had
bcen more nearly reached,
"The general trade depression has,
of course, reflected Itself In the results during the present year's operations of the Company's steamers
but the passenger business is well
maintained and the prospects of Immigration on a large scale are very
promising. The construction of the
new steamers for the Atlantic and
Pacific, to which reference is made
in the Annual Report, has been very
seriously delayed by the Joiners'
Strike in Great Britain, wbich
still apparently far from settlement
and which will defer the'delivery of
these steamers until at least the end
of the present year. These ships are
of a class tbat would render great
service during the Summer and
Autumn of this year and the fact
that tbey will not be available ls to
bc regretted. As both the direct and
indirect benefits of a continuance of
an adequate service are very great
it may be desirable to purchase other
ships, if these can be obtained at
moderate prices.
"As Indicated ln the Annual Report,
your finances are In excellent shape.
While the balance in the Bank is not,
of course, as large as lt was at the
end of the last fiscal year, the
amount ls nevertheless a very substantial one, and there ts still unissued or undisposed of over Sixty-
seven Million Dollars of Consolidated
Debenture Stoek the issuance of

red or that you will be asked to
sanction at this meeting. Even ln
the trying times during and immediately succeeding the War tho pro-
Ki'cssion of the Company has been
Bti ady and sure and tho Assets
Staleinont shows an increase since

Hundred aud Seventy Million Dollars.
"Your Directors bavo recently accepted a proposal for the acquisition

substantial amount of Four Per

"As explained ln the <.iiiiu«ll<_^w^
you will be asked at the special general meeting to be held immediately

"While lt la not easy to designate ia

Directors that your approval ahouM

such securities as will enable them

"The Company's enterprise is now
so extensive that in providing tor
normal and proper expansion large
sums of money ana quickly absorbed.
Vou will, I feel sure, recognize the
desirability ot having your financial
arrangements in such shape that
your Directors can, without avoidable delay, secure funds for your
purposes at intervals as dream-
stances may justify or require aad

proposed powers. *, j
"While the period of rigid economy;
and retrenchment has not yet paaaed, your Directors do not look tor-
ward to an indefinite continuance of
the present commercial depression.
Certain basic elements ln cost hare
yet to be reduced but the stimulus of
restored confidence and commercial
activity Is not, I think, ln tbe distant
future. When It is reached aad
traffic approaching normal la resumed, the full effect will be felt oa
the Company's operation. Over-
expansion and consequent flnaacMt
embarrassment have caused in many
localities a pessimism which ls not
warranted by the fundamental
soundness .of Canadian condition]

the ability of the Company to satisfy
all the public demands which may
be made upon it and to meet with
credit to itself and advantage to your
interests the steadily advancing commercial and transportation require-
ments of Canada."
