Government Will Advance
Irrigation Project Far
Enough This Fall to
Finish It in Tims for
Next Season's Crops
"I have every confidence tbat tbe
government will fulfill its promieses
to the people of Grand Forks, aod
that work on the irrigation project
will be sufficiently advanced this
fall so that it can be completed next
spring in time to turn tbe water on
the land when it is required by the
crops," said E. C. Henniger, M.L.A.
for Grand Fork, in speaking on the
irrigation subject to a representative
of The Sun yesterday. Mr. Henniger left for Victoria on the I .'Ith inst.
to interview government officials
on matters of finance in relation to
the irrigation scheme for tbe Grand
Forks valley. He returned to the
city on Monday evening.
Referring to the present financial
stringency, wbich seems to be world
wide, to illustiutes some if the difficulties to wbich all governments
are at present subjected, Mr. Henniger said tbe Oliver government was
finding it very hard to carry out its
original program of expenditures.
Continuing tbe subject, he drew attention to the fact that a short time
ago the government of Ontario
placed on the market 85,000,000
treasury notes. Tbis, presumably,
was the only method in wbich tbe
government could finance tbe province. Mr. Henniger said he cited
this case in order to show that governments otber tban British Columbia's are having their difficulties
in financing their obligations.
Speaking on matters iu British Columbia, be said the expenditures are
being cut down all over the province;
(be expenditure at Prince Rupert
has been cut to one half of the or'gi-
nal estimate, and the expenditure
on the P.G.E. has been reduced to
11,000,000. Otber expenditures, in
eluding that for road work, have
been reduced, but tbe government is
still optimistic and believes that the
necessity for these curtailments is
only temporary.
Speaking on tbe subject in wbich
tbe people of this district are vitally interested, Mr. Henniger reminded The Sun representative that dur
ing the election last fall the government had promised to aid in financing the irrigation scheme bere; on
May 26 tbe minister of lands made
ibe statement in tbe presence of the
irrigation trustees that he had
recommended the loan of 1150,000
for this year; tbe minister of education has stated on different occasions
to citizens of Grand Forks tbat the
government would finance tbe irrigation project The Oliver admin
istration fully realizes, said Mr.
Henniger, tbat no government can
repudiate tbe promises of its ministers and retain the confidence of the
"I received positive assurances
from the government," said Mr.
Henniger, "tbat tbe foundations for
the pumps will be built as soon as
the plans and estimates can be om
pleted and approved. These foundations must and will be built now
during low water. While the general expenditure is delayed, it is only
temporarily, and I have every confidence that the promises of tbe
government will bs fulfilled."
Regarding tbe unfounded and
sensational report of bis spilt with'
the government, Mr. Henniger said
tbere was absolutely no truth to it,
and he had made a public denial of
the story over bis own signature in
the Victoria Times. "Should the
government finally fail to carry out
its promises, however," lie added,
"sucb a course migbt be the only
way opsn to me. But I do not anticipate such a contingency."
Mr. Henniger said the moderation
act is working very well at tbe
coast, where government stores
have been operated for some time.
The commissioners are very busy
just now establishing new stores.
When tbat work is completed tbe
act will be enforced to tbe letter.
_,Mr. Henniger said tbat tourist
travel is very heavy at the coast at
present, and had he not been ac
quainted he would have been compelled to sleep in a chair.
E. G. Henniger Nails Yarn
Printed in "Province"
That He Intends to Oppose the Government
Vancouver, August 15.—"The
whole thing is a hot-air yarn. I
yarn. I gave no interview stating
that I might resign as a protest
against the Oliver government."
In tbese words E. C. Henniger,
member for Grand Forks, disposed
of the recent report that he intended
to move over to the opposition side
of tbe house at the next session,
when seen by a World representative
on Saturday. He left for his home
on the Saiurday evening train.
He declared tbat tbe only possible
basis for such a report was a few
joking remarks be had made to a
friend in connection with the irrigation work at Grand Forks.
"While I am naturally anxious
that rapid progress should be made
on tbis Mork." Mr. Henniger declared, "I recognize tbat the government has many calls on its purse
and many other equally important
public works must be carried on. I
have every confidense that Premier
Oliver and hjs colleagues will carry
out their promises to the people of
Grand Forks. I have unbounded
faitb in the Oliver administration
and tbe statement that I intend to
line up in opposition is pure fiction."
Twenty-six Forest Fires
in Interior of Pro vine e
Victoria, August 17.—Twenty»six
forest fires were reported burning in
tbe Veroon, Cariboo,Cranhrook and
Nelson districts, according to reports last nigbt to the forest branch
of tbe department of lands. Fires
in the rest of tbe province were reported under control, although conditions in places are said to be
So far tbere have been 807 fires in
the province this year. Of these 224
have in tbe Vancouver and Island
Arrangements bave been completed for tbe holding of a provincial
forestry convention at Vancouver
September 19 and 20, and at Victoria September 21, under tbe auspices of tbe Canadian Forestry association. Tbe British Columbia
directors of tbe association are Hon.
Hewitt Bostock, Hon. A. C. Flumerfelt, P. Z. Caverbill, provincial
forester, Charles D. McNab, H. R.
McMillan and R. D. Prettie. It is
expected that a considerable delegation will be present from eastern
Canada and from Alberta.
What Makes More Noise Than a Pig Going Under a
Inspector of Apiaries Visits Gity ~ Demonstration Apiary Here Next
W, J. Sheppard, of Nelson, inspector of apiaries for tbe interior of
the province, spent Wednesday and
Thursday in the city, and inspected
a I the bivesin the valley. He found
no disease among the bees in this
district, but owing to the dryness of
the season, tbe honey crop will be
ratber light tbis year. This is the
situation all through the interior,
Mr. Sheppard stated.
Wednesday evening Mr. Sheppard gave an illustrated address in
the city ball on beekeeping. Nearly
all the beekeepers of the valley were
present. The speaker went fully
Into the subject of tbe physiology of
tbe bee, and described its method
of gathering neotar, its diseases and
its productiveness. He gave many
practical instructions on the man
agement of apiaries, and those who
heard him gained some useful in«
formation on beekeeping.
Wbile in tbe city Mr. Sheppard
made arrangements for lbe opojation
here next summer of a government
demonstration apiary. This will be
conducted in accordance with instructions from tbe government, and
City Clsrk J. A. Hutton will have
charge of it.
Mr. Sheppard is a practical bee-
man and bas a model apiary at Nelson. He is regarded as an authority
on beekeeping.

SpcckU Correspondence of The Sun.
Victoria, August IT.—Perhaps
tbe most important question whicb
has been before the Oliver government since it took office is that of
municipal finance, and the entire
month is being devoted to it by the
executive council, with the premier
and Hon. Jobn Hart, minister of
finance, determined to find a solution. All tbe recommendations made
to the government by various mu
nicipal representatives for the past
two years aro being considered, and
tbe premier says he hopes to meet
the situation without finding an increase in taxation necessary.
The liquor act is expeeted to produce a profit of $1,000,000 before
the end of tbe year. Tbe amusement and automobile taxes bave in
creased and tbe income taxes are
the heaviest for years. A reduced
budget is inevitable, but tin finance
minister is optimistic and declares
tbere will be no marked shortage
wben tbe estimates are brought
down at the fall session. A rigid
policy of retrenchment has been
necessary this summer, but the pre
mier bss declared himself unwilling
to incur avoidable obligations.
For tbe purpose of pushing on
construction on tbe Pacific Great
Eastern line north of Quesnel, into
which town steel was laid two weeks
ago, a loan of $1,000,000 has been
negotiated by Hon. Jobn Hart,
minister of finance. Twenty-year
bonds to that amount, bearing in
tercst at tbe rate of 0 per cent, have
been sold to a Toronto syndicate at
93.50. This price is about one-half
point higher tban the last sale made
by the province of Canadian pay
ment bonds.
Labor conferences bave been tbe
order of tbe day recently, witb Hon.
J. W. deB. Farris, attorney-general,
inviting employers and representatives of trades and labor councils to
submit tbeir proposals for tbe relief
of unemployment in British Columbia. Wben all tbe data bave been
collected the deputy minister of labor, J. D. McNiven. and J. H. Mc-
Vety will leave for Ottawa to attend
a federal conference. A determined
effort is being made to prevent excess unemployment next winter.
Premier Oliver ascribes tbe refusal
of W. J. Bowser' K C, leader of tbe
opposition,lo accompany the P.G.E.
excursion party this month to Cottonwood river to a natural desire to
avoid the embarrassment whicb
might arrive from too close a survey
of the errors of the former Conservative government in connection with
tbe provincial railway project. "If
it were not for this inheritance from
tbe Conservative government, we
would not find any difficulty io
meeting the financial requirements
of British Columbia," stated the
premier recently, "but since we
have tbe foundling on our bhnds
there is nothing to do but see it
through, and I hops when the members of the legislature who do make
the trip see the real situation they
will have no objection to voting the
money required to complete the line
to Prince George."
Tbe executive couocil has approved tbe appointment of thiee
men who will represent British Columbia on tbe board of commissioners for tbe promotion of uniformity
of provincial legislation in Canada.
The new commissioners will be A.
V. Pineo, and James S. Yates, of
Victoria, and Joseph N. Ellis,K.C,

R. Campbell Gets the
Job~Gar of Liquor Arrived Wednesday for
Government Store
Washington, August   15.—Highest temperatures of August are expected during the week centering on
18  west  of meridian 90; on 10 between 90 and the Atlantic coast, and
on 20 in the Atlantic states.   Moisture will continue to come from the
cental   north   Atlantic   ocean, and
therefore eastern sections will continue to get the most disagreeable
effects  of tbe  damp  atmosphere,
calied humidity.   But tbe humidity
for August will not be so great as it
was  in  July,   because tbe storm
forces  will not be so intense—will
not evaporate so much moisture from
tbe ocean.   Probably August  temperatures will average nearly as higb
as tbey did for July, aut will not go
to sucb extremes and will not be so
disagreeable.   Following this bigb
point of August thetemperature will
go down more rapidly than usual
Not mucb rain during August; Hup
tomber rain will be much better; all
thiB will be favorable to sowing winter grain. I am expecting above av
erage winter grain crops for  1922
but small yield for quite a large part
of the winter grain sections.
Individual predictions are being
published that a very cold, severe
winter is just before us. f do not see
it that way. I expect an average
winter. The cold and warm winters,
cool and hot summers are caused by
the location of the evaporations.
During tbe summer of 1921 the
evaporations jame from tbe gulf
stream tbat flows northeastward
over the north Atlantic, hence the
hot and disagreeable summer.
When evaporations come from the
icy cold waters then we get the cold
winters. Evaporations for November will come from tbe middle Pacific; not mucb evaporation for December; for January from Gulf of
Mexico; February from middle Atlantic near the equator, comparatively cool waters; March from Pacific west of Central America, moderately cool waters.
The appointment of R. Campbell
as government vendor in this city
was announced thia week. It is Slid
tbat tbe appointment was made
about a month ago, but by soma
oversight of tha offi:j stiff at Vic -
toria the form ility of gizettiag the
name was overlooked. Hence there
was an uncertain in this city
about his appointment until Thura-«
day of this week. .Mr. Campbell bas
had considerable business experience, and will no doubt fill the position satisfactorily both to tbe government and to the patrons of the
store. T. H, Wilkinson will act
as his assistant temporarily or as
long as the services of an assistant
may be required. Botb of tbese
gentlemen are returned men who
saw considerable service in France
during the late war.
The first car liquor for the government store arrived in the city on
Wednesday. It was accompanied by
a C.P.R. guard, who kept close
watcb of the or until tbe cargo,
valued at about $30,000, was unloaded. Contrary to an erroneous
report, no government official accompanied the shipment.
Mr. Campbell states that he expects to have the store open for
business on Saturday afternoon.

cially in Bologna, Modena, Milan, Genoa,
Florence, Ferrara. In some centers it covers
the same ground as nationalism, but it is
neither national nor militarist, its sympathies
being, in fact, with the working classes and
with "syndicalism" and in some places even
with republicanism. Fascism is now a national
force which will remain active until Socialism
shrinks once more within its legitimate bounds
and no longer threatens that glorious unity.
The silly vaporings of a few opposition
papers in the class of our Winnipeg avenue
contemporary exhibit a lamentable perversion
of facts. By continually, in magpie fashion,
referring to the moderation act as the "Oliver
booze act" they hope to make oapital for their
party. The moderation act is no more an Oliver
act than it is a Bowser act. But it is neither
an Oliver act uor a Bowser act. It is an act
demanded by the electorate of British Columbia by an overwhelming majority. In all self-
governing countries the will of a majority of
the people is supreme. The act in its present
form may not bo perfect,but it is a safe bet that
it is as perfect as Mr. Bowser would have
made it. At any rate, it is now a law of the
province, and is entitled to an impartial trial
before it is condemned. And it is the duty of
every good to see ttat the law is not violated.
Public sentiment in the province today is undoubtedly either for strict government control or for bone-dry. If liquor can't be controlled it will be banished. But the papers
that condemn the new act before it has been
fairly tested are unreasonable and insincere.
Their voice is like the voice of a jackass braying for fodder. That is really what they are
Our local contemporary seems to have discovered a back entrance to the government
liquor store early in the game. That is the
route by which tne goody-goodies used to find
way into the bar-rooms. It is very kind of the
editor of that paper to inform his friends that
possibly they may be permitted to visit the
government store in the samo private manner.
David Mark Carley, who established the
Ladysmith Chronicle in 1908, has disposed
of his paper and retired from business. We
first met Mr. Carley in Minneapolis shortly
after he had returned from the Gordon relief
expedition to Egypt. Since that time we have
beeu associated with him in Victoria and in
Nelson, and have always found him to be a
gentleman. During the period of his vigorous
editor al career in Nelson he had about the
same newspaper rating as the late John Houston and the late R. T. Lowery. We expect to
see Mr. Carley in the journalistic game again,
because most newspaper men did in harness.
They believe in the late Theodore Roosevelt's
maxim that it is better to wear out than to
rust out..
The keystone of British Columbia's pros
perity i.s the protection and development of
i he timber wealth. The forests of this prov-
iace contain more saw timber than can be
found in the whole in the rest of Canada-
This great advantage is well worth malntai n-
ing, and to do so requires something better
ihan tho "laisser faire" attitude which has
stripped many American states and more than
one of the provinces of Canada. In other
words, forest conservation requires the personal partnership of every alert citizen wheth-
er he runs a sawmill or grows apples or sells
merchandise. On Monday, September 19
tliere will open at Vancouver a two-day forest
convention, to be followed by a single day's
session at Victoria on the 21st. The events
are under the auspices of the Canadian Forestry association, and it is anticipated that the
attendance will be unusually heavy, including
not alone thc lumbermen and pulp and paper
m m of all parts of the province, bnt a large
number of men and women interested in forest
conservation from a patriotic point of view.
Tlie addresses will includo such subjects as
forest lire prevention, the use of aircraft, the
trend Of the timber industry in eastern and
western Canada, the future of paper manufacture at the coast, the progress of forestry
throughout the Dominion, forestry education
in British Columbia, all of which will be handled by recognized authorities from this province and from eastern Canada.
That we may profit by the lessons of the
past, the philosopher of today seeks an epoch
in history for a parallel, but he searches in
vain for a period where the calamity of war,
with its aftermath, is comparable in magnitude
to that of the great war of our day. We are
all now agreed that what government can and
should do is to assure to all men and women a
chance to work and win, according to their
taleut and diligence and their moral fiber, and
to guard the path to success from obstruction
of trickery, fraud, oppression and monopoly.
The fact is recognized by economists who have
studied the world's natural resources that the
potential wealth is sufficient to assure a state
of universal prosperity. There wuuld bo, in
short, an abundance of everything necessary
for the comfort and well-being of the billion,
seven hundred million people who inhabit tho
earth, if the world's resources were utilized.
What is required are the means for the development of these countries together with facilities to transport their products to markets
where they Mould be welcomed.

Mr. Rocr is now looking into the

Montreal as an Immigration Centre
The Empress of Britain, one of the big Immigrant Liners of the Atlantlo on the St
Lawrence Route. On her lai,t voyage she brought 800 settlers to Canada, moat of them
bound for the West.
Montreal ts one ot Canada's chief
Immigration centres.
While the chief ports of disembarkation are Halifax and St.
John In winter and Quebec ln summer, a larpre proportion of the total
arrivals reaches Montreal on their
way west or for redistribution, while
many stay off at that city in order
to settle in Quebec province.
Evidences of its being a busy
Immigration centre are seen at the
wharves as well as the railway stations. Come with me to the Canadian Pacific Ocean Service dock.
The Melita has just come in at an
hour when the city has hardly awakened. Soon after the big leviathan
ties up at the wharf—and remember
that she sailed up a river for eij*ht
hundred miles from the open sea—
Jill is bustle and excitement, for the
docking of a transatlantic vessel is
alway* an imposing sight. Gang
planks are lowered, donkey engines
sing their noisy song ns they hoist
the endless number of trunk's from
the deep holds, and the passengers
land onco again on solid mother
Among the hundreds of passengers
are scores who may be regarded as
newcomers and as prospective set
tiers in a new land, the third-class
passengers having left the ship at
Quebec. And among the Montreal
arrival* are many who belong to the
clas» of household workers, for
whom Cnnadian homes are waiting
A? they bave been helped while on
board i*i a C, P. li. matron, so on
land there aro Immigration officials,
of both sexes; and port chaplains of
the churches, priests and sisters
from the Roman Catholic Church,
Y. W, C, A. secretaries, Jewish mis-
sioners and many another ready to
render help. The service these
voluntary workers gives is of the
highest value and is greatly appreciated.
With baggage and luggage arranged alphabetically in the long
freight .:hed, it is an easy matter to
identify and check the mountains of
truiiks and bags as they are piled
high in the transport wagons for the
railway station.
Next let us go to the Windsor
Street Station of the Canadian Pacific Railway. It is always a busy
centre, but after the arrival of several ocean boats it is doubly thronged, and yet such is the excellent
system in vogue that there is no confusion. No one can go astray in
finding the ri;;ht train. The workers ene finds at the docks are here
also, for they know no union hours

the English-speaking ones in another; those who sue pairing through
Canada on their way to the United

Montreal does a great deal for the
new arrivals. A sample is Dorchester House, a fine home for immigrant
girls where they are guided in every
way and assisted in finding suitable
employment. Hundreds take advantage of this excellent institution,
which is maintained co-operatively
by several Protestant denominations, also working in harmony with
the nearby Y. W. C. A.
There is also the Dominion Immi-
gration Hall, adjoining the Windsor
Street Station, a four-story building where immigrant arrivals can be
kept for a short time free ot charge,
where delinquents are treated as in
a court, where hospital service of a
first aid nature Is given, and where
a goodly number oan be accommodated in dormitories and cots.   %
