E.   G.    Henniper   Clears
t   Some Misconcp tions Re
His Election  and Dis
trol, Irrigation and the
Doukhobor Question
Sptxial Correspondence of Tlie Sun.
Victoria, Feb. 14.—In making big
maiden speech in the house last
Friday, E. C. Henniger, member for
Grand Forks, said, in part:
"Mr. Speaker, in taking my place
"here in this house. of assembly for
th9 first time, I do so witb all seri.
oneness and with timidness. Coming
as I do from the country to tbe city
and making my first attempt to address an. assembly of t.iis kind, it
makes one-a little nervous and
"I wish to compliment you, sir,
on the high position to wbicb this
legislature has seen fit to elect you.
Judging by your intelligent looks
and by the manner'in which you
are conducting the proceedings, I
tbink tbis bouse made a wise choice
in selecting you as speaker.
"I also wish to songratnlate tbe
Ham ■a.frmumhM. wt the speech"
I am glad tbe member from Fort
George has found a way and can see
a way clear to make the P.G.E. pay,
and if he oan tbis government
should make bim minister of railways.
"The liquor question   is a very
serious question to settle. Tbe referendum vote taken last October and
by a large majority gave the government control of liquor within tbis
province,   and  I  am in favor of a
very strong control. If we are to allow   the   importation of liquor br
bootleggers, we bad better stay witb
the Prohibition act.   In my riding,
bordering as it does on tbe international boundary line, witb   four or
five roads leading across the line, it
is  a  headquarters for   bootleggers.
Ab the premier has stated they will
not make it a party question, I hope
and trust that this bouse will complete an aot tbat will settle the liquor
question once and for all.    I bave
seen the curse of liquor all my  life,
and I detest it first, laBt and always.
I bave seen its crimes and curses, I
bave Been the homes in squalor and
misery, I have seen tbe mother and
the little ones in want. These are tbe
things to consider in  settling tbe
liquor question. But I am willing to
agree to a small quantity being sold
uuder   government  control.    Tbe
hotelmen and . liquor interests  opposed me in thb late electiion."
A strong plea was made by Mr.
Henniger for government assistance
in providing an irrigation system
for Qrand Forks valley, and he gave
a resume of tbe efforts that bad'
been made to get water on tbe land.
Here, be eaid, was one of the finest
districts in the province, and still he
had j>een forced to see the crops dry
up ahd blow away and the fmit, to
drop from the trees because of a
lack of water.
In referring to the Doukhobor
question, Mr. Henniger said tbat a
colony of these people had settled
near Qrand Forks. He considered
tbat Dr. MacLean, minister of education, bad succeeded in relieving
tbe situation somewhat, * but tbere
was still room tor improvement.
These people, be said, bad no marriage laws. Tbey were "beating"
the government out of a marriage
license fee, and they would not obey
thelawsofthe land. Perhaps Mr.
Bowser, as former attorney general,
bad been too lenient witb tbem,
said Mr. Henniger. He hoped the
situation would be rectified soon.
A (lumber of other subjects were
touched upon by Mr. Henniger, tbe
principal ones being tbe traospro-
vincial highway, the South Okana-

that the returned men bave a champion who will defend tbeir rights in
an able manner, and 1 for one "will

"And tbe new member for Fort
George bas clearly demonstrated to
ns that Fort Q-orge will be represented.
"Mr. Speaker and members, I
had the wrong idea when I came
here. I thought that tbe brains and
ability was in tbe possession of tbe
cabinet members, but after hearing
the soldier member from Vancouver
and tbe member from Fort George,
lean not belp but be convinced
that this side of the house, at least,
has as able and bright members
outside of the cabioet as are within it.
"Mr. Speaker, before saying anything futber, tbere is little personal
matter wbich I wish to clear up relating to my election as a member
of this house. Most of you are aware
tbat I bare been elected by a close
margin, and in this matter I do not
think that the press have been quite
/air, or they have been misinformed.
The public of tbe province bave
been led to believe that I have been
shown some favoritism by the gov-
-.rnrhant and courts. I Wish to explain that in my riding theie were
18 ballots without tbe official mark

During the past few days the irrigation project for the Qrand Forka
valley has   again  become  a  live
issue.   A conple  of days ago tbe
committee received   a communication from the minister of lands,Hon,
T. D. Pattullo, in which that official stated that the matter of organ*
ising a water municipality waa actively under way, and tbat this part
of the work wjuld be completed  in
the near future.
The irrigation committee has also
received lettera from Engineer Cleveland and from our member, E. C.
Henniger, on the subject of the proposed irrigation system. Mr. Cleveland expresses the opinion that it
will perhaps be difficult to induce
the government to finance more than
one unit of the system this year. '•■
Mr. Henniger writes that be is doing
everything that is humanly possible to bring tbe scheme to a successful Jend. However, there are
many other districts, he says, dame
oridg lor irrigation, aad it may
be difficult to get the government to
finance more than oop anit tbia
summer.  .
The committee held a meeting in
the city hall tbis afternoon, when
the above communications were discussed aud considered. A resolution strongly urging tbe government
to complete tbe entire system during
the present year was adopted. Copies
of the resolution will be forwarded
to our member at Victoria and to
government officials.

of Alaska into tbe Northern Pacific
elope and gradually spread south*
eastward till it covers all the coun*
try between meridian 90 and the
Paoifio ocean. It will drift eastward,
crossing the continent in four or five
days; storm wave will follow abont
one day behind warm wave and cool
wave abont one day behind storm
wave. Generally good weather will
prevail; not much presipitation; do
great extremes of temperatures; good
crop weather for winter grain. Precipitation will be located about as
past three months.
During tbe week centering on Feb
ruary 24 a warm wave will cover
the northern Rockies and Pacific
slope of western Canada. It will
move southeastward and cover all
the country west of meridian 90,
drifting eastward to the Atlantic
in about four days. Precipitation
from this last will be a normal or
near the general of February for
past years. Its crop weather will
average fair for the montb; better

There will probably be maliy warm debates
at Victoria before the legislature decides what
to do  with malt liquors.   The fight of the
m.oderationists to have beer sold in hotel dining rooms and hotel buffets, should the plan
be   incorporated ^n the government control
act, will hardly be satisfactory to the people
of the province.   It   has been demonstrated
that   liquor in hotels can not be controlled,
and it only requires a casual acquaintance
witb the world to form a reasonably accurate
idea of what the buffets would degenerate
into.   It would practically be a reversion to
the public bar.   If anything, it would be a
little worse, because  buffets  were 'abolished
from bar-rooms a good many years ago.   The
people  voted for the sale of liquor in sealed
packages,under government control.   No dis-
tihction was made.when the plebiscite vote
between malt and spirituous liquors, and none
should be made in the proposed act.    If all
parties can not be satisfied with strict—very
strict—government control of the traffic, start
a row over the matter, and
ten to one that the pqople would vote the
province bone-dry   on the first opportunity
. they got to express their views on the subject.

zone that stretches across France from the
British channel to the Vosges. The soil of the
region was of course churned and convulsed
by the constant rain of shells that fell upon
it, and many persons feared that the fertile
earth had been so buried under the gravelly
subsoil that the zone would be forever sterile.
Now we are told that that is not the case except in a few districts where the topsoil was
so thin as to be of little value. More than two
million Frenchmen are back at work on the
war-ravaged farms. They find the deeply
ploughed soil generally as productive as it
used to be; and in some cases it seems to have
been improved by its upheaval".

It is impossible to estimate even approximately the loss caused to Canadian agriculture by weeds. A bulletin recently issued in
the United States estimates the annual loss
due to. weeds in that country wt more than
$300,000,000.   Not long ago a western  paper,
stated that the annual loss to farmers of Saskatchewan due to weeds was not less ?han
$25,000,000. If there is this loss in one prov-
the chances arelvince, the total in all Canada must be tremen
dous. There are many districts in British Col
umbia that stand high in weed production.
Weeds cause a direct, actual* money loss
such as those due to drought, hail or frost.
There, is also a loss in depreciation of property
badly infested with weeds.
We do not know the full reason why weeds
reduce crop yields, but it is well known that
weeds deprive crops of moisture, plant food
and sunlight, which cause decreased yields. A
crop of grain or grass and clover seed which
contains weed seeds will not grade No. 1, and
there are certain weed seeds which it is well
nigh impossible to screen out. Every time a
sample of grain or grass seed drops a grade

At the desire of the president-elect of the
United States the inaugural ceremonies are
to be very simple. There is to be no ball, and
there will be less in the way of parade tha n
was planned. The idea is to save the "nation's
money, since this is a time when expenses at* e
tremendous and taxation is high. It is nol
probable that the saving will be sufficient to
make any appreciable difference in the country's taxes, but the motive is a good one. And
if the other branches of the government foi-.
low the example set by the president-elect,
something will be gained. Incidentally, the
details of the presidential wardrobe, as given
to the anxious public b_y Mr. Hardling's tailor
in Toledo, indicate that the next president is
more bent oil saving the nation's money than
hia own.
The only way to find success ipiickly with

It is reported that a million men are unem
ployed in England today, and   that an equal
number are out of work in France.    What  is
more, the prostration of general business tends
to grow worse. Both England and France are
trying to relieve the situation by making work.
In Paris the old fortifications are being torn
down, and in  the English cities public works
of various kinds are being undertaken to give
employment But such expedients of course
are only palliative.    There are provisions for
•unemployment allowances in  both countries,
but many municipalities are quite unable  to
advance   the   money, and, if the nat on  advances it, the only result would be to increase
tlie  burden   of taxation, which already de
presses all business.   Naturally, the radical
parties are taking advantage of thc situation
to spread their own  propaganda.    You hear
Weeds cause much extra work.  They must
be handled a number of times in a grain crop,
and extra ploughing and cultivating are necessary in a weed-infested held if a crop js to be
obtained. Net profits are reduced because of
increased cost of production and of cheapened
product.   In  a sense, farming is a war on
weeds. This warfare must be unremitting a hd
relentless if the farmer is to emerge victorio us.
Many men make a start to clear their farms
of weeds but quit too soon.   The campaign is
stopped when success is in sight. The plan of
attack mast be carefully nude and faithfu liy
carried out. Every faronr should be his   own
weed inspector and his own weed eradicator.
Lack of careful planning wiph reference   to
weeds is too frequently evident throughout
Canada.   One man puts in more hoed orop
than he can properly care for; another fail s to
follow a short or systematic rotatioojof crops;
still othevs fail to  give the   land   suffioie nt
preparation for their crops, or sow seed   that
is foul with weed seeds.   It is because these
things have not been given sufficient consideration in the past that the evil conditions   of
tofJay prevail.   The weed problem is one of
national concern a\}d calls for active cooperation, on a large scale.   Every member of the
community is affected and should len'd assistance. Farmers, weed inspectors, owners of vacant property, township and county councils,
and governments must work together ii weeds
are to be held in check.
The problem is how to get rid of weeds and
keep them out. First, follow a short rotation
of crops; cultivate the land thorougqly and
often; prevent weeds goitog to seed; clean all
seed before it is sown. |.
If the grain field is weedy, seed it heavily
to clover and grass; mow the annuals and biennials before they seed, and pasture closely
to keep down perennials; follow by a hoed
crop or smother crop and most varities of
weeds will be checked.

The birth and development of the
pulp and paper Industry in British
Columbia has been phenomenal. A
decade ago not a single ton of pulpwood, mechanical or chemical, was
manufactured in the Pacific coast
province; in' 1919 the total valve of
the products of this industry
amounted to $12,554,257. To-day
British Columbia stands third
among'the provinces of the Dominion in the amount of capital invested
In the industry. The surprising rate
at which this has grown in the last
few years and is continuing to grow,
Is indicated in the jump effected between 1917 and 1920. It was $22,-
684,652 in 1917 and $50,000,000 in
This is a remarkable history of
development of what will doubtless
become one of the most important
industries of the Pacific coast, but
lt is more than probable that the
next decade will exhibit still more
rapid expansion. Great Britain nnd
the United States are drawing the
greater part of their paper supplies
from CanadaT* and eyes are turned
on British Columbia possessing as
it docs the largest remaining stands
, ol limbei in the world suitable for
Ready for the Mills in British
the production of pulp and paper.
The province's annual export to
Australia already amounts to more
than 20,000 tons whilst the demand
for pulp from the far east exceeds
the present available supply.
Of the 370,870,000 cords of pulpwood estimated to exist in Western
Canada, British Columbia is credited with 285,370,000 cords, consisting of spruce, western hemlock, and
balsam, whilst for the coarser
grades of pulp a certain amount of
.Douglas fir is used. It should also
be observed here that British Columbia is highest among the provinces
of the Dominion in tne average production of pulp per cord of wood
the mechanical process' giving an
average of 2485 pounds.
To-day there are only seven plants
in British Columbia producing pulp
— groundwood and chemical — and
newsprint. No other industry offers
such boundless opportunities of development. In addition to the enormous areas of suitable timber are
the tremendous unharnessed water
powers awaiting utilization, which
are estimated at 8,000,000 horsepower. The temperate climate of
the Pacific Coast gives assurance of
open harbors th* year round, whilst
apart from the demand in the United
States there is an unlimited market
for tho product of the mills immediately across thc ocean.
This may be instanced from the
fact that the entire pulp product of
one of the largest mills on the coast

British Columbia is producing sufficient newsprint to supply the
whole of Canada, taking the most
recent estimates of the annual consumption of 120,000 tons. Figures
of the province's output of pulp and
paper of all kirds for 1919 were as
follows: Sulphite, 80,047 tons: sulphate, 9,473 tons; ground wood, 99,-
769; paper: newsprint, 123,607 tons;
wrapping 7,202 tons. In newsprint

From the standpoint of lii.r.'.r resources, water powers, elim.->tc, flipping, a bright future awaits British

July, was nny higher point reached
