Premier Oliver Comments on Federal Issues
Victoria, Oct 10.—Premier Oliver
speaking after lbe nomination of \V.
M. Ivel alf tbt; Liberal club Friday
nigb^ compared Premier Meigben'g
eleotioD manifesto to a magician's
crystal, into whicb Ibe gullible are
supposed to gaze.
"When I went through tbe manifesto, I began to scratch my head,"
said tbe premier.
"Then I went through it again
and I came to tlie conclusion that
Premier Meighen is something of a
hypnotist and a sleight-of-hand
"He tells tbe pebple of Canada to
gaze on that crystal. 'If I am to
stand you must keep your mind on
that crystal, wbicb is labelled " 'Pro-
Motive Tariff ior Canada,' " he says.
. "'Keep your eye on the ball,
don't touch tbe question of representation' he tells you.
" 'Keep oureye on tbe ball.dont't
look at tbe two billions of indebtedness we have piled up.'
" 'Keep your eye on the ball,don't
took at tbe seventy millions we have
piled up in railway deficits. Don't
look on the ontside. Keep your eye
ou the ball.'
'"Don't took at the adverse balance of trade, but keep your eye on
tbe ball. Don't let your mind dwell
(or a minute on the fact that last
month Canada purchased £170,000,-
000 more than she sold, and although we were the party tbat in
1911 said no truck or trade with the
Yankees, we have borrowed millions
from these samo Yankees.'"
Premier Oliver said he remembered when protection under the
the national policy of Sir John Macdonald was introduced into Canada
forty ..two years ago. At that time
Sir Jobn said tbat it was to be withdrawn when the infant industries
had grown. But after twenty yesrs
of this pr tection the premier went
back to Ontario and found that the
farm hay was bringing only 14.50 a
ton; cattle were going at $16 and
$17 a head, aod men were working
for $4 and $5 a month.
Washington, Oct. 10.—A high
temperature wave will develop 'in
tbe extreme northwest during the
week centering on October 12 and
tbe storm wave, a low barometer,
one day behind it, will control tbe
weather for tbat week. That warm
wave moving southeastward is expected to reaob meridian 90—a
straight line extending north and
south from St. Louis—near October
12. Three days earlier it will be in
Alaska, and after reaching the Gulf
of Mexico, it will spread over the
St. Lawrence valleys and surrounding sections near October 14. The
usual change •, first tbe sform wave,
then the cool wave one or two days
later, will affect the whole continent
as they move eastward.
This disturbance will not be very
great, but above the averge, and
rainfall accompanying will be about
the average and in sections where
most rain occurred during the summer. The most severe storms of the
first balf of Octoher were expected
from October 1 to 8.
By October 8 the humidity, or
drmpness, of tbe wind tbat comes
from tbe eastward will have begun
to lessen and by October 15 will begin, gradually, a long spell of dryness. This does not mean a drouth.

Vanconver, Oct. 11.—Byron McDonald, general manager of the B. C.
Growers Limited, of Kelowna, who
is in Vancouver superintending the
shipment of eighteen carloads of apples on the S.S. Makura, will leave

the exception of 1250 boxes, the B.C.
Growers took all the refrigerator space
for apples on the Makura. Mr. McDonald stated that prices are about
35 cents less than last year,
The Okanagan man intimated that
his organization was an important
factor this year in shipping to the
American and Ontario markets. Up
to the end of September the B. C.
Growers had rolled thirty-one cars to
Chicago and. the east, and by now
eighty cars were on the way or delivered. They were principally Mcintosh Reds and Wealthies. An equal
amount had been shipped to tlio old
country. Two days ago a wire had boon
received from Glasgow, stating that
tlie Kelowna stuff had brought the
highest prices, 17s 8d, on that markot.
Mr. McDonald expects great results
from the Toronto winter fair, to be
held about November 16 to 24, where
two cars from the B. C, Growers

pioneer of Grand Forks. Born in
England in 1863, be came to British
Columbia twenty-five years .ago
and selected this city as his place
of residence. For a number of years
he conducted the boarding bouse at
the Granby smelter. Then he became proprietor of the Hotel Colin
dining room, and eleven years ago
he established tbe Kettle Valley
restaurant. Tbis he successfully
managed up till the middle of last
month, when he had a slight paralytic stroke and was forced to dispose of his business. His close attention to bis work is generally at
tributed as tbe cause of bringing on
the malady. He worked steadily
in the kitchen as chef for eleven
years witb scarce!/ a day's vacation.
Like a good soldier, he stuck to bis
post to the last.
Tuesday evening he was in R. F
Petrie's store, and a few minutes be'
fore closing up time be was seen to
stagger, and walked back to the
counter for support. A couple of
men in the store noticed that be

few seconds it was plainly seen that
his entire right side was paralyzed.
He was taken to his bome on Second street in an automobile, and
Dr. Kingston was summoned. Later
he was transferred to the Grand

about 2 o'clock the next. morning
Much sympathy is expressed by

Death of James West,
a Pioneer of Our Gity
Lie death of James West occurred
in this city Wednesday morning at
2 o'clock of a paralytic stroke. He
was 58 years, 8 months and 6 days
of age, and is survived by his wife
and one grown up son, Walter. The
funeral was held from Holy Trinity
church at 2:30 this afternoon. Tbe
attendance was very large, and)
many beautiful floral offerings were
in evidence to mark tbe esteem in
which he was beld by his fellow
citizens. Interment was made in
Evergreen cemetery.

Users of cars taking 30 x 3A rims
have now available a Straignt Wall
type of rim, which allows the use of
a 31 x 4 Straight Wall Cord Tire, recently developed by the Dunlop Tire
& Rubber Goods Co., Limited.
This 31x4 Cord Tire, as previous
ly stated, is made to fit the new
Straight Wall rim in 30 x .'U size,
and its introduction at this date is
particularly interesting because the
31x4 Straight Wall Cord Tiro represents an extension of the Straight
Wall principle in tire-building to the
smaller car tire. This makes it
possible for owners of "Brisco1"
"Chevrolet," ''Ford," "Gray-bort,"
"Maxwell" or "Overland"cars lo use
the new Straight Wall Tire—if they
so wish—by converting their present Clincher Kims into Straight
Rim makers are now supplying
30 x 3| Straight Wall Rims to interchange with 30 x .'U Clincher
Demountable Rims or Solid type
30 x 3i Clincher Rims.
The new 30 x-3i Straight Wall
rim is exactly the same as the 32 x
3J Straight Wall rim except that
it is twenty-three inches in diameter
instead of twenty five.
"31 x 4 Straight Wall" introduces
a new size in Cord Tires, one that
undoubtedly, will be vary popular
because of the records it will set for
tremendous mileage.
One Car Maker bas already adopted tbe new bunk p Cora Tire for
equipment purposes, and tbe prospects are tbal others will follow the-
example immediately.
31x4 Straight Wall Cojd is supplied in both "Ribbed" and the
well-known "Traction" tread designs.

People are feeling a little disheartened; they
are wondering whether human affairs will ever
be settled by anything except force, whether
good will, reason and common sense will eyer
regulate the course of nations. I ean not conceive of any greater disaster than the failure
of the coming disarmanent conference to
achieve the ends for which it will meet). It is
essential that all should help to make it a success. We can help by promoting good will, by
not saying unkind things about other nations,
by disarming our minds before we reduce our
fleets. Failure of the conference would be a
The .definite announcement that Premier
Lloyd George has decided to head the British
delegation to the Washington disarmament
conference gives assurance that the empire
will be well represented at that important
meeting. The prime minister has a very large
number of admirers in the States, and it would
not be at all surprising if it should eventually
transpire that his flnal decision to attend was
made after reading many persuasive invita
tions from Washington.
Some of the coast papers now have Dave

are that he will continue to do so.

In 1916 the grain producing territories of
that portion of the former Russian empire
which is now controlled by the Soviets yielded
about 1,100,000,000 poods (a pood is about 36
pounds) of wheat, rye, barley and oats over
and above the amounts needed for local consumption in those territories. During the crop
year 1920-21 the food supply agencies of the
soviet government were able to procure from
these territoriss only abont 280,000,000 poods
of grain, in many cases a^ the expense of the
amounts needed for minimum local consump
tion. The tax in kind established for the current crop year in the place of the system of
requisitions which existed last year calls for
only 240,000,000 poods, yetLenine has already
stated that there is reason to believe that the
actual amounts gathered will be "several tens
,of millions of poods under the original figure."
In other words, under the soviet regime Russia
can scarcely yield 20 per cent of the amouut of
foodstuffs she yielded under the imperial regime, for distribution to the portions of the
country which do not raise their own food
supply and for exportation abroad.
The profitable light horse of the future,
aside from horses bred for special purposes,
will be the horse that proves most useful on
thc ordinary farm or ranch. The three great
American breeds, the standard, the Morgan,
und the American saddle horse, are tne basis
of the American government experiments, begun in 1904 in Colorado, and now carried on
in Buffalo, Wyoming. The object is to estab-
lesh a new type that will have the best qualities of all three breeds, and that will breed

well balanced action and a fair amount of
spend at a walk or trot has been noteworthy.

There is a mine shaft in Chile that happens
to dip at exactly tho right angle to catch
Mars at the zenith several times during 1924,
when the planet will be nearer thc oarth than
at any other time Within a century. Accordingly an American astronomer plans to use the
shaft as the barrel of a huge telescope and
ventures to think that he can get a magnification of 25,000,000 times, which would bring
Mars apparently within a mile and a half of
the earth. He expects to prove that life exists
on Mars and to take snapshots of just how
the Martians are getting ready for the "War
of the Worlds."
"The world is sick and needs to recover
from the tremendous shock it has received,"
says Lord Northcliffe. "What are known as
social questions are also pressing upon us; for
while the economic and industrial positihn is

during the war attained a higher standard of
life, are anxious not to be thrust back into prewar, conditions.   There is at the same time a
"Zionism is the most stupendout fallacy in
Jewish history," says Henry Morgenthau,  of
New York.    "The political and  physical rehabilitation into a national entity is an empty
and impossible dream, unsound in its economics, fantastics in its politics and sterile in its
spiritual ideals.  Zionism is a surrender, not a
solution. It is a retrogressiou into the blackest
error, and not progress toward the light.   I
will go farther and say it is a betrayal; it is an
eastern European proposal, fathered in this
country by American Jews, which, if it were to
succeed, would cost the Jews of Americajmost
that they have gained of liberty, equality and
fraternity. Zionism is based upon a literal acceptance of the promises made to the Jews by
their prophets in the Old Testament, that Zion
should be restored to them and that they
should resume their once glorious place as a
peculiar people, singled out by God for his
especial favor, exercising dominion over their
neighbors in His name and enjoy all the freedom and blessings of a race under the unique
protection of the Almighty.   Of course, the
prophets meant these things symbolically and
were dealing only with the spiritual life. They
did not mean earthly power or materialistic
blessings. Zionism arose out ofthe miseries of
the Jews.   It was offered as a remedy, a re
lease, a plan of action  which would provide a
road to happiness.   This is the seeret of its
hold upon ts adherents.   The promisos which
it otters are so dazzling that Jews everywhere
have rushed to embrace its faith without stopping to examine them closely or to calcnlate
whether  thoy can be. mad* good.   Here  in
America we have fought our way through to
liberty, equality and fraternity. We have found
the rest for our souls.    No one shall rob us of
theso gains.  We enjoy in America exactly the
spiritual liberty, the financial success and the
position which we have earned.   Any Jew in
America who wishes to be a saint in Zion has
only to practice the cultivation of his spiritual
gifts—there is none to hinder him.    Any Jew
in America who seeks material reward has
only to cultivate the powers of his mind and
characters—there are   no   barriers between
him and achievement.    Any Jew in America
who yearns for social position has only to cultivate his manners—there are no insurmountable discrimatlbn here against true gentlemen.
The Jews of France have found France to be
their Zion.   The Jews of England have found
England to be their Zion. We Jews of America
have found America to be our Zion. Therefore,
I refuse to allow myself to be called a Zionist.
I am an American."

Meeting Provincial Needs
The great increase in the number of telephone stations in this province means that
thc 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 of the various
communities. The object of the company is tb give a telephone service second
to none. The 'B. C. Telephone Corripany
being a British Columbia concern all

Quaint Quebec is Treasure Trove for Vacationists
Only two commonwealths of North
Ameriea preserve the customs —
legal and domestic—of their French
discoverers. They are the state of
Louisiana and the province of Quebec. Much of the charm of the February Mardlgras is due to the quaint
atmosphere of New Orleans old
French quarter. ,
Quebec has her winter carnival,
too. It lasts two long, glistening
months, and winter sports are the
order of the day, yes, and the night
too. But the northern stronghold
of old Trance is also a summer magnet. Thousands of city folks are
swallowed up by the northern woods
each summer, emerging brown and
radiant when Autumn calls them
Other thousands, whose vacation
tastes lean citywards, find a visit to
Montreal and Quebec City a happy
experience. Montreal has its old
French quarter, its centuries-old
churches and landmarks, but is more
modernized than Quebec, where reminiscences of early days are met
on every corner.
Every church, and they are
legion, has an interesting history.
Priests, monks and nuns are always
oassing.   Tha CiUlel, high ovar all,

Chateau Frontenac, a glorified reproduction of Chateau St. Louis
which housed brave knights and fair

Kent House, once thu home of royalty, claims its quota of afternoon
tea drinkers. They motor down thn
seven miles from thc Chateau and
visit the little house which in 1769
was Wolfe's headquarters and they
are spellbound by the waters of
Montmorency Falls in their 250 foot
plunge. While not so gigantic as
■Niagara, Montmorency is 100 feet
higher. Much of the fascination of
Montmorency Falls is due to their
isolation and freedom from ,thc
throngs "that make Niagara almost
a Coney Island.
Another  aot-tft-be-miesed  nearby
point of interest is the village of
Ste. Anne de Beaupre with its great
church famed for miraculous curea
and tn which vast pilgrimages
wend their w;iy each summer.
Ai Quebec you take the electrio
car which takes you to Ste. Anne de
Beaupre. The journey takes less
than an hour. The shrine is built
at the foot of a hill in a very pic«
ture. que setting;. Thousands are reported to have been cured there
through the influence of Blessed Ste.
Anne. Proof of the cures is to be
found in hundreds of crutches, boots
that the deformed had worn, belts,
and all the different belongings of
the sick and suffering. All these
relics are placed just inside the door
of the shrine.
The village of Beaupre is a few
miles fnim the shrine, and it is an
interestin};* place to visit. There is
a feeling OI peace and security in
tho place. A long white road
stretches into the distance with
happy nests of houses on cither side.
Here you see the real old habitant
life in all its purity. A writer has
described Beaupre ".a "A small peep

attitude on the public demand for
beer by the glass
THF  Moderation  League has been  asked to endorse several petitions
which are at present being circulated asking for the sale of beer by
the glass.
The consensus of opinion of the League, taken from its organizations
throughout the province, has been and is in favor of the sale of beer by the
glass under reasonable restrictions as being conducive to moderation.
Prior to the passage of the present Act the League forwarded to the Legislature a resolution asking:
"That the commission be given power to provide
for the serving ot beer by the glass during limited
hours in approved establishments where meals are
served. Such privilege to be subject to cancellation in any locality at the discretion of the commission.   No beer to be sold over a bar."
Since the passage of the Act public opinion has strongly substantiated
the League's resolution, and il has been* suggested that the League should
urge the matter on the members of the Legislature at the present session.
This the executive of the League is prepared to do. It invites the cooperation of all in favor of a moderate law and holds itself ready to assist
in the presentation to the Government of petitions and the resolutions of
organizations which have the above object in view.
