SiMrsox  Counsel: /''���������' . Clerk.  Vaneonver Nows-Advoi tisor  The address of Mr. J. K. Cornwall at  the Canadian Club, luncheon, calls attention to two subjects which vitally  concern this city. One is the value  of the Peace River Country. The other is the duty of Vancouver to provide  for the trade -which this district will  offer. Mr. Cornwall emphasizes the fact  that the whole of Northern Alberta, as  well as all British '_ Columbia, is the  hinterland of Vancouver. This is a  matter in which provincial boundaries  de not count. At present the Western  grain traffic 'does not notice the fron-  **��������� ������ "���������*   **���������     .  tiers, of the Prairie Provinces. ' For  commercial purposes Northern Alberta belongs as much to British Columbia as the Peace River district of this  province.  Most people are not trained to think  in millions, ,but it may help pur com-  prehension of the situation td say that  57,000,000 acres of arable land means'  three times the extent ,of th'e whole  prairie, country under crop of all kinds  this,-year, and that the whole area of  field crops in Canada last year was'  32,000,000 acres. The development of a  little more than half of this region  called-the Peace River country would  therefore add a new Dominion of Canada tb the farm resources of the world.  And all this'belongs commercially to  the, port .of, Vancouver. It may be worth  while for citizens to make use of an  imagination tempered with arithmetic,  to picture .Vancouver with additional  THE TRUTH ABOUT CEMENT  L. O.

Mr. Cornwall promises in addition*"  all the traffic originating or ending  west of Red River. 'We db not need to-  hold hini to this. Accepting the .sum^'  nier haul which determines the course^  of-the greater-part-'of thetrade, giving:  the Hudson Bayi.route a 'share, this,  coast may look for a considerable  share of the export and import trade  of Saskatchewan, and the larger par,t;  of that connected| with .Southern Al-.-  berta.   '���������*'"'.  ,The best answer that can be given to  the question what has Vancouver done  to provide for the trade that Vancouver'"claims; 'is ' that nothing* has 'yet  been done, but that preparations are  beginning. The Public Works Department at. Ottawa has explored the  ground, and is/niaturirig. a plan of  dredging"and other 'development; The  dredging that has been done is but a  small commencement. It will be a  great disappointment if a harbor board  is not authorizedvand appointed early  next year. During the period which  must pass before the railways that are  to connect Vancouver with Northern  Alberta are completed, and before the  Panama Canal is ready for business,  there should be great activity on the  Vancouver harbor front. We are of.  the opinion that the first Peace, River  grain that is ready for shipment to  Vancouver by the railways through the  northern passes will find terminal facilities waiting for it.  The attitude of the Liberals in opposing tho reduction of the cement  duty last summer to relieve the serious shortage has caused a great deal  of comment. Just why they should  so anxiously defend the cement trust  was a mystery; or again, why should  they have increased the duty until it  was oved 40 per cent? However, the  cat is now out of the bag. Here are  thc names of some of the cement  people:���������  President���������Hon. XV. C. Edwards;  Senator by the ,favor of Sir Wilfrid  Laurier; a Liberal; a free trader.  Director���������Hon. Robert Mackay; a  Laurier Senator; a Liberal.  Director���������Hon. Ceorge Cox; a Laurier Senator; a Liberal  Director���������C. C. Ballantyne, of Montreal'; a Liberal.  Director���������George E. Drummond, of  Montreal; an old time friend of Sir  Wilfrid Laurier.  Again, at Owen Sound, there were  two cement plants'. One had for its  president, Mr. A. G. Mackay, sometime  member of the Ross Government,  sometime leader of the Liberal party  in Ontario, now a champion of reciprocity in Edmonton. The other had  as its president,-Mr. AV. .P. Telford,  formerly Liberal M. P. for North Grey.  Yet again, Mr. James Pearson, a great  Liberal, a free trader.'former Liberal  candidate in East Toronto, is interested in a cenient plant at Attwood,  Ontario.  History of Cement Duty.  It was no wonder.that Sir Wilfrid  Laurier so hurriedly came to the defence of the Trust and was-so annoyed  that the duty was cut in'half.   '      ;-  The history of-the duty on cement  is interesting:    ';.���������,"''. 7 ' *������������������'.���������  When the National ��������� Policy was-devised in 1879, the duty on cement was  fixed at 40 cents a barrel. In,Canada  the barrel is Spff'pfjuh^sl^so that this  was equivalent to 11.4 cents on 100  pounds. There was no impost on the  package in which the cement came.  At this figure the duty remained until  1897, or. .during. the continuance, of;the  Conservatives'-in power:- 'The production of cement in Canada was tunder  200.000 barrels a year-until X896.. *f he-  question of price is' complicated and  difficult, but on the whole the duty;  seems to have been about 30 or 35 per  cent, or about that accorded to numerous other industries.  mission to-day that commission could  go into the office of this merger, take  control of their books/ascertain immediately where this merger stood  and whether' they were receiving too  much protection or not The protection was increased by the Liberal Government by nearly 30 per cent and  still .these hon. Gentlemen have the  audacity to stand up andf try to hold  this side of the House responsible for  the increased cost of cement."  Production Increased.  Coincident with this great increase  of protection there was a great increase in production. In .1897 the production was about 200,000 barrels; by,  1902 it was over 700,000 barrels; by  1906 it exceeded two million barrels;'  in 1909 it was four millions; by 1911 it  was 5,600.000. The consumption of  cement, locally produced and import-:  ed, in 1912, probably will be about  8,000,000 barrels, and some six millions of this were made in Canada. In  1909, 1910 and 1911 less than 10 per  cent., of the amount consumed was.  imported.       ���������. ,  While consumption increased so  enormously, processes improved and  the cost of making cement in up-to-  date plants rapidly decreased. ' The  question of price is difficult, but if we  take -.$1.10.7as,<ia- basic ..price .for the  Canadian product, we get a protection  of not far short of 06 per cent.  ' That is what Sir Wilfrid Laurior's  Government, of convinced free "traders did for cement. And, remember,  in 1906/when Mr. Fielding revised the  tariff, the drop in. cost had .begun. But.  Mr.- Fielding kept ,the .duty ,qn,...The  reciprocity-arrangement , would have  cut. the duty on American cement from  12%" 'to ' II cents ' a hundredweight,  leaving the total impostat 46%-cents  t, 'barrel; or over .40 -pec��������� cent.; or, 6%  cents more than the Conservatives  left it.

JIKN AVItmNO AOVKIITISEUS PX^KASE  .MENTION   THIS I'AI'EU  A new industry, that of naval stores,  may yet take a prominent place in  British Columbia. The bull pine of  the interior has been found by experimenters in the Forest Products Laboratory of the United States .Foiv-st  Service to yield turpentine resin in  large quantities. A bulletin recently  issued shows that, even taking into  account the unfavorable weather conditions in Arizona, California and oilier western states, the amount of rosin  obtainable from the pines growing  there is about two-thirds of that which  can be had from the pines of the  South-East where turpentining is one  of the main industries. Labor is *he  difficulty most prominent in the eyes  of I-L S. Betts, the compiler of- the information, but he believes thai: with  the diminution of the supply from tiie  South, the Western bull pine may yet  engender new benefits to the country.  Advertise in the  Hedley Gazette  and watch Results  Liberals Increased Duty.  George H. Bradbury, .member for  Selkirk,, speaking in the House, gave  a history of the duty; 'He said: "In  1894, under the old Conservative regime,' and until the Liberals came into  power, the tariff in existence was 40  cents per barrel, including the barrel;  when the Liberals came into office in  1896, it was increased by them 43%  cents per barrel, including package,  making' an increase in the duty of 3%  cents in additon to the weight of the  bag. or an increase of about oc per  barrel. But, in 190G,. not satisfied  with increasing the duty, this free  trade party further increased it to 51%  cents. When the Liberal party came  into power they found a lower duty  on cenient. they built up a higher tariff and they created this merger  through that tariff because it is safe  to say that without an increased tariff  there would have been no great inducement for the formation of this  merger in Canada. If the duty on cement is burdensome to the people today the whole responsibility rests upon the .shoulders of the right hon.  leader of lite Opposition, the member  for Edmonton and their colleagues all  over the country. They are the men  who put this increased duty on cement. There, is no daubt at all that  it will remain for the Conservative  government to reduce the tariff and  see that a fair and equitable duty is  levied.  Killed the Hill.  "Before taking my seat I want to  point out. that there was a Bill before  this House last session that was killed  through the advice and influence of  the leader of the Opposition, and this  measure would have made it possible  for this House and the country to have  known exactly where the cement company stood. That, was the Tariff Commission Bill.    If we had a tariff com-  -. The Division of Entomology of .the  Experimental Farms Branch of the  Dominion Department of Agriculture,  Ottawa, has recently issued a bulletin  hy' Dr. C. Gordon Hewitt, Dominion  Entomologist, on "The Control of Insect Pests in Canada."     ....  An account is given of the history  of the war against insect pests in Canada and of the manner in which insect, pests  have  invaded the  country  as.it  has been gradually opened  up  and cultivated.   The manner in. which  the Dominion and Provincial governments are endeavoring by legislation  and other means to prevent the introduction  of  insect  pests  into  Canada  and the increase and spread of those  pests already here is described.   An  interesting   summary   of  the   various  lines of work undertaken and carried  on by the Division of Entomology at  Ottawa is given and the general public  will no doubt be surprised at the many  problems which come within the scope  of the Entomologists who are  called  upon to deal with insects in their relations to all the  varied activities of  man;   insects   affecting   farm   crops,  fruit growing, forest and shade trees;  insects   attacking   man's   possessions  and   infesting   houses,   attacking   domestic   animals  and   finally  affecting  the health'of man.    All insects, however, are not injurious and the work  of the Entomologist includes bees and  beekeeping  and  the  study of parasitic and other enemies which may be of  assistance in obtaining control of insect posts.

Hallelt, hamster,ol' Greenwood arrived  in  town  on Monday to  handle the matter of the mechanics'  liens against the property of the Gold  Plate Mines Co. Limited, in behalf of  the lien-holders,  of whom   theie are  somewheio about twenty.    It began  to look to the lieii-holdeis, who have  given the principals eveiy chance in  the world to square up without adding  more costs on them, that the delay in  Victoria was for the express purpose  of   seeing  whether   the   lieu-holders  might    not    let    their    claims lapse  by going beyond  the thiity-one days  allowed hy the Act for commencing  action in the county comt.   This is the  third   batch  of   liens   or  actions   for  wages  that  havo^beeii fylcd  against  the Golden Zone.   The first hatch was  in connection   with  the  operations of  t.heoriglnal ownei-s.Marks, Brodhagen  and.Murphy.    Tiie 'heaviest  claimant ,  in   that   instance    was   the   .Tenckes 1  Machine Company which suppiied the ,  stamp mill and other'mint; equipment  and other judgments still  unsatisfied '  obtained at that time were for wagos.  ,  The second lot were against the Golden  Zone Company when vmiutis liens for  wages were fyled, tho case* entered iu  tiie County Court and judgments obtained hut no execution ever followed. '  This time it is not a tall likely that the  creditors will he so lenient or so patient ,  and if the money be not  forthcoming  the property is likely to go the hammer.  AH these things .tend to give ������ property a bad  name  when  it may not,  rindin.this case apparently does not.  deserve it.    In every instance they ran  into debt iu an ill advised manner and"  chaos worse confounded  is the  result  of -it-all.    While it might seem  like  undue..meddling- on  the part ot  the  Government with  private enterprr-o  it' is   nevertheless-  time that stricter  supervision of opt-r'ations be taken to  prevent   men   and- meichants   being  victimized    by   it responsible   parties  who .will   undertake opeiations  that  they are not in a position tocau-y out.  A rigid supervision   by   the   Government of the hank aecount of all  who  undertake work of 'this kind is required-'and if the money is not on hind to  meet obligations being or about to be  incurred the work should   be   stopped  summarily.    It is not enough to place  a law of that kind on the statutes. The  main thing is to make ample provision  for its:enforcement.  GENERAL NEWS  The boaul of conciliation appointed  by the Dominion government to investigate the differences between the  C. P. R. and the-.brotherhood of railway employees whir had gone on strike  has reported that the men were fully  justified in the course they had taken.  A Vancouver fit-in of.architects- won  the first prize for- best design for the  new B. C university. Another Van-  couverite was second and the third and  fourth prizes went to men in Montreal  and Toronto.  Indian chiefs on the coast to the  number of about 1(H). incited by some  white agitators, principally clerical,  have decided to treat no more with  the Provincial-government for settlement of the land question, but will  cany their case to the Privy Council.  The United States- Senate refuse to  entertain the idea of submitting lo  arbitration the matter of Panama  tolls.  HOSPITAL   DONATION  The secretary of the Hedley Hospital requests us to arknowlcdge receipt  of a cheque for $25.00 from K. A. C.  Studd as a Christmas remembrance.  Mr. Studd lias always been very generous to the hospital and has helped  in the problemof making ends   meet.  It is the intention of the staff* to  issue next week's Gazette aday earlier  owing to Christmas coining in the  middle of die week. Advertisers who  have changes to make in their ads are  requested  Monday.  to   have   the   copy   in   on  The Gazette has hvard several reports about violation of the game law  in the matter of exceeding the limit  of deer killed in the season. With a  game warden, deputy game warden  and a game protective association  that sort of thing should not be allowed to go. Whether it be true or not  we are not prepared to say lint where  there is so much talk about it the  thing should be investigated anil if  there be no truth in the report let the  public be told so.  Mrs. Buriiell. of Fairview, died I heie  recently. Her husband was killed in  an accident a little over a, year ago.  There is a large, family of nine children.

Taft appreciated very high-  the efforts of "the old cock"  in trying  to bring about reciprocity  which  he  explained to Roosevelt would "make  Canada only on adjunct of the United  States."   The most charitable view of  that circumstance we can take for Sir  Wilfrid is that he was ignorant of the  fact that Sir Wilfrid  was  making a  tool of him, for it would seem incredible that Sir Wilfrid could be aware of  Tuft's design and still go on  advocating the means of which Taft so bluntly pointe.il.oub  the end. Nevertheless,  in view of the fact that Sir Wilfrid  after learning Tuft's intention  in  the  matter of reciprocity    has since   affirmed his intention of going  on   with  the advocacy  of the means   by which  Canada was to be betrayed, we  would  be justified both in assuming  and asserting that Sir  Wilfrid .wilfully  and  knowingly concurred in the plot.  Now while them  is still  left to  us  the   chance   of    believing    that    Sir  Wilfrid may have  been more sinned  against than sinning in  playing  into  Tuft's hands  for the undoing of Canada, it is practically impossible  for us  to believe that he does not know  he  is playing into Germany's  hands  to  the undoing of the Empire    when  he  is   trying   to   prevent   Canada  from  sending her dreadnoughts  to the only  place  where they could be of any service in curbing Germany's aggression.  This is no newborn ambition on  Germany's part to wrest  the  supremacy  of the sea,  but a, long cherished ambition and plan.     As long ago as 18915  when Li Hung Chang made that memorable tour through Europe, Bisinurk  told him of how Britain boasted of her  big   navy,   but  how   Germany    was  going to humble her.     These things  are cominng out now in  the  diary of  of Li  Hung Chang  which  is at last  being    published.       When    Bit-mark  told him about the   "Hundred  weak)  Why should Sir Wilfrid Laurier  and his following show so much  antipathy towards the British arti-  sans as they appear to do when they  scold about Premier Borden's railway  policy providing employment for the  workinginen of Great Britain ?. The  display of a spirit of that khid at the  present time is a. poor way to convince the rest of the world ol* the solidarity of the. British Empire and that  was one of the main things that were  sought by Borden in formulating his  policy. It has been shown by Fred  Field of the Monetary Times that over  $1,OOU,OUO,000 of British money has  come to Caua'la to develop industrial  enterprises that have given and are  every day giving 'employment to  Canadian workinginen, and why  should it make Sir Wilfrid and his  followers so jealous and so angry  that British workinginen are going to  get some employment out of the  three super-dreadnoughts which Mr.  Borden on behalf of the people of  Cauda proposed to donate to the  British navy.  There have been many comments  on Borden's naval policy from the  press of the entire world and from  the*-public.men in all corners of the  Empire. In Britain the Unionist papers, and many of the Liberal as well,  commend Canada's attitude and congratulate Mr. Borden. In Canada the  Conservative press are backing the  movement in every instance, ��������� while  some Liberal and nationalist papers are  disposed to carp and find fault. One  of the most dishonest pieces of criticism.  is that of the Toronto Globe, which.'  calls it "a policy of tribute". A more  dishonest and low down piece of misrepresentation is scarcely-conceivable-  than contained in the. word "tribute".  If his rivirince who i.s responsible for  the editorial utterances of the. Globe  know-* the meaning of the word "tribute" he must know that none but a  deliberate falsifier and distorter would  make use of it in this instance. Borden's programme appears to have met  all the valid objections which have:  been urged against Canadian aid to  the Empire navy. It has completely  satisfied the Liberal administration in  Britain and notwithstanding the carp-  of the half-Yankee preacher on the  Globe, it is likely to get as emphatic  an indorsement from the Liberal party in Canada.

New Federal   Law Compels Vessels to
Have More Wireless Operators
Many good positions are open to
young men and women in the field of
"Wireless" and of commercial telegraph service;. The passage of the
new federal law, effective Oct 1, compelling all sea-going vessels to be
equipped with wireless instruments
and manned by two competent operators, has created a wide demand for operators in the marine wireless set-vice.
Federal law now requires railways to
use more operators than ever before.
The Morse Telegraph company, of Seattle and Portland, works in close connection with wireless and commercial
officials, and can place graduates in
good positions. It will pay you to
write for full particulars.    Adv.    -19-I
