Saturday's Public Meeting
Hon. -John Oliver, Premier of
British Columbia/and Hon. J. D.
MacLean,. Provincial Secretary,
arrived in Greenwood on Saturday afternoon from Penticton, and
addressed a large and attentive |
audience in the evening at the local
theatre. Mayor T. M. Gulley
acted as chairman and introduced
the speakers, leading off with the
Hon. Dr. MacLean the member
for this riding. Dr. MacLean had
only intended speaking for a few
minutes as he could be heard at
anytime, while the Premier waB
only able to be here on special,
occasions, but, on being asked he
gave a brief outline of the policy of
bhe government as to returned
soldiers and what they have done
for them.
���( Premier Oliver was then introduced by the chairman and on rising was greeted with loud applause.
The Premier is also Minister of
Railways and in this capacity he
was able to give a thorough outline
of the railway policy of the government, dealing principally on the
history of the P. G. E. railway and
the Hanes charges in connection
with it.   .
The financial position of the
province was also dealt on. The
premier stated that: they found
very little money in the treasury
when they took office. The late
government, by tying up the lands
and timber in the hands of speculators and collecting 21 years in
advance, towards the ond of their
"boom," for timber licenses, had
swelled,the .revenue from $2,638,-
000 in 1903-4 to $12,500,000 in
19J 3 when the bottom dropped out
of that- unsound financing by exploiting the country, instead of developing it, and by 1916, when the
late government went out of power
the revenue had fallen to $6,250,-
000 with an annual expenditure of
8117000,000. "We had to raise
your taxes," added the Premier,
and we went after the unpaid back
taxes, with the result that the next
year we had raised the revenue to"
68,800,000, and last year we restored the revenue to $12,500,000.
We have taken a large proportion
of the .increased taxation, from-the
big corporations and the more
wealthy classes, raising 82,000,000
per annum now from the income
tax alone."
The, last subject on which the
Premier touched was the Woman
Suffrage Act, an act passed by thig
Government giving the ' mother
equal guardianship of tbe children
with the father, and an act establishing juvenile courts and also
providing homes for. incorrigible
children, where' medical examination and treatment/ were given
those whose mental condition. waB
found to. be responsible for their
moral .delinquency, /The = fixing of
a minimum wage for women and
also . prescribing . the conditions
under which they shall- labor, was
another act of -this Government,
from which over 2>000 women have
already benefitted;: similar provisions had been inade for girls under
18 years, of age. Then laws have
been passed; protecting wives
deserted by their, husbands, providing for childless married couples
legally adopting children, and an
act ihis lasfe session* providing for.
mothers' pensions.

Victories in Russia Enable Thtm To
Consider Peace Negotiations
_ Victories won by the Polish armies
in Russia have, placed Poland in such
a position that within a short timc
, it will be able to resume peace negotiations with the Bolshcviki, the Polish Legation was informed by its government.
"The Polish government," thc cable
message stated, "has given proof of
its peaceful intentions in notes and
official communications. Thc manner
in- which Poland has treated the
Ukrainian question proves the complete absence of any imperialistic
aspirations or intentions of conquest.
The victories of our army have placed
us in a position that within a short
lime we will be able to reconsider
peace, leaving to the Soviet government thc privilege of choosing the
p'iacc for the negotiations from
among the places proposed by Poland
and whicli will answer the purpose
for which intended." o
Swedish Colony on Bow Slope Are
Prospering
A few miles south/of Brooks, in thc
eastern section of the Canadian Pacific Railway's Irrigation project in
southern Alberta, a very productive
district has sprung up during the last
two or three years. This district lies
to the north of the Bow River on
what is known as thc Bow Slope, and
has been found especially sliited to
irrigation.
In onc of thc best parts of thc Bow
Slope is the Swedish colony of Upland, which was established in 1918
and which now has a population of
about 300 people and an area close to
8,500 acres under crop.    In 1918 the

More Land Is Brought Under Irrigation in Alberta
Another large area of land in south-
I ern Alberta has been brought under
between east and west in Canada, to j irrigation    during   the last few days
people 20,000,000 acres of vacant lands ' when water was turned into the main
and thereby secure a vastly increased
national production, to enlarge the
domestic market and reduce the Dominion's war debt��� these are among
the notable purposes of the Western
Canada Colonization Association. The
promotion of desirable immigration is
the solution proposed, and for this
purpose a fund of $1,500,000 will be
required.
It is estimated that there arc at
least twenty million acres of arable
land lying within twenty miles of cx-
acrcagc under crop was 600,,in 1919 j isting     railways,  exclusive  of  thosc
2,200 acres were cropped and this
ycar an authoritative source statcs
that 8,362 acres of land has been seeded.
Thc Bow Slope produced heavy
crops last ycar and lhc settlers there
look for heavy production in 1920, as
conditions are in cvery way a great
deal more favorable. About 4,000
acres of the total area in crop is bcing seeded to flax, it having proved a
splendid crop, especially on new brok-
hcld by< the government, the Hudson
Bay Company and the railways, that
should bc brought under cultivation.
Thc Western Canada Colonization
Association, having behind it thc
whole business confidence of the
three western provinces, and many

do, and its motives arc regarded as

During, the war a drive was -made
to persuade people in. cities, to-help
win it by "consuming" less--food ancl
.by raising what they could in .yards
and gardens. Their response in/both"
directions did" help win- the, war. and"
with that tremendous strain over with
there-has'been a-general let-down/
which, coupled with continued shortage 'of farm labor and unsatisfactory
crop, conditions, constitutes -another
serious threat "to. the' maintenance-of

bushels to thc acre was raised on Bow
Slope farms. As the land is getting
in better shape, alfalfa is being planted, and already about 200 acres are
under that seed, made up of small
plots on various farms,
Throughout thc whole irrigation
block, moisture conditions are excellent,, and a great deal of breaking is
being done. Many farmers have been
working nighot and day, both to get in
all thc wheat possible and to prepare
new land for crop. On thc farms of
thc Duke of Sutherland work has
been done' in two shifts and wheat
seeding is now completed with two
thousand acres in crop.
Notwithstanding there is sufficient
moisture everywhere for rapid germination, preparations for irrigating are
being made and cver3r possible minute is being taken advantage of to
get the ditches in shape iind ready for
the water which is expected to bc
turned on within the next week, or,
at thc vcry latest, by the first of June.
who havc thus far been approached.
Thc object is not to buy or sell
these lands, but to advise prospective
settlers of their true value. Such
lands arc now privately held, and thc
heavy unearned increment taxes imposed by the western provinces on
vacant land disposes owners to sell
at a reasonable price. Further than,!
that, the general interests and well-
being of tlie new settler will become
thc care of the organization until hc
is on his feet.

It Always Pays to  Operate A Car
With Care
"To get thc maximum enjoyment
and comfort from your car you must
bc thoughtful of it," says an authority.
"Do not race thc motor unnecessarily. Be warned by cvery abnormal
noise. If it is a squeak, locate it, and
lubricate the part. If caused by loose
parts, locate them and tighten tlie
bolts.
"Don't tinker. Half thc ability to
make an adjustment or repair- is the
ability to discover its necessity. If
all adjustments are carefully made
when needed and cvery bearing and
working part is well lubricated the
smooth operation will.be continuous
with a "minimum of attention,      .
"By neglecting.- details you may
save lime at the start, but you will
make up" for-if in the long-run.. Do
not- main lain- too ' high a speed in.
driving. The time-saved will riot offset the liability-of accidents, nor thc
extra wear lo which the car is, subjected.. In the-end-the timc saved
this wayvis a loss in dollars and cents.
��� "You will find that a .normal rate
of travel- will conserve the life, of
your car and give you" the- utmost

ditch of the Canada Land and Irrigation company, cast of the Little Bow
Reservoir, for irrigating what is
known as the Vauxhall district, where
5,000 acres of land purchased by settlers from the United States, will be
put into crop this year. The water
will be ready for use on the farms.
Water was turned into the main
ditch from the Bow river intake, 40
miles cast of Calgary, a ycar ago last
fall, and since then the huge reservoir
in thc Snake Valley, known as Lake
McGregor, which is nine miles long
and holds enough water to run tne
entire project for a year, has been
filled. Some weeks ago, water was
turned from this reservoir into thc
main ditch to the east, and the reservoir at Little Bow, which holds
enough for a month's operations,'was
filled. Now thc water has been
turned out into thc ditches from this
reservoir.
The turning of the water into the
ditches marks thc successful culmination of an engineering project which
has been in course.of development for
a number of years. It is ten years or
more since the project was first un-f
dertaken, and since then it has been
through various reorganizations and
changes, until it culminated in thc
amalgamation of three distinct companies into thc Canada Land and Irrigation company; Thc main ditch of
the project is 175 miles long, and from
this it is ultimately planned, to irrigate 220,000 acres of land.

CHAPTER I.
Tardily the cloud gates, liv: eastward, opened to a new-br-.ru day;
liquid glories licked the trcc-spiked--
horizon. A misty sheen of orange
and purple drifted across lake -and
forest and wiped the last sombre
shadows from liic mystery-enshrouded world.
Throughout thc greening nis'cs wild
life awoke and to thc music of God's
wind-played organ ascended the chanted thanks of His wild creatures.
Standing bn thc^shorc cf the lake,
a young man. watched the wondrous
streamers transform his solitude. Upon his bronzed facc the morning sunlight lingered, aud in his dark, wide-
set TJycs rested a deep perplexity born
of the dumb groping for 'the solution
of what was still to him a mystery.
Linked lo the wild, he was its worshipper, but onc who could read the''
Lord's prayer in thc lighting skies.
In thc faint glow that dawned like
a smile of promise ��� "Our Father
which art in heaven���"
With the out-sweeping glory���"Thy
kingdom come���".
And with the purple haze on' lake
and  tree-tops, "Thy -will bc done on
earth as it is "in Jieav'en."
And with thc pealing'of' the wind-
������'fingcrcd" organ of the, forest cathedral
"For  Thine  is   the, Kingdom,    the
Power and the Glory."  ���,-.   .-'���."-
, -  So prayed he in his soul to-. that
beautiful something which was to liim
a-thing as sacred as Motherhood.'
. '-Nowin .the full glow of the morning streamers hc stood up, a perfect
animal of a man, tall, broad-shouldered,- slender-hipped.  . The muscles  on'
his folded amis swelled in.repose be-
. neath his buckskin sleeves. .The cords
-of"his  massiyc- throat  stood- out as
though chiselled'in marble.   For long
���moments    hc . stood ��� motionless, as
��� though chiselled in'..marble..- For long,
moments he stood motionless, eycs.pn
.the unreadable- skies; then the. grave
lines, melted   from' his   facc   and   hc
smiled.     '_- _. _-- .__;_._,_..... ..
'" 'Behind him, a little .way into .the
woods, had issued, a .faint,-   purring.
sound.. He'waited untilit was repeated;  then, -without, -turning, his- head,
commanded, "Co me'-here," Lulu"." "   -
-���Straight froin out the brown'shadows', issued, the forin of an' animal,, a

paws, blinking tip at him.
.   The woodsman.stepped over beside
her and bending down patted her grey
' sides.    Immediately she broke into-a

.",~������-���^r-".   ������..���    . '    K^ansawHi'v^mki
her back lifted all four paws in the
air. The man laughed and grabbing
her roughly by the throat shook fier
from side to side. She snarled and
spit and tapped the face above her
own with great soft paws. Shc grabbed his hand iu her mouth and champed it-gently with her teeth, Then, as
though fearing she had hurt him, she
licked it with her rough tongue.
He: gave -.her a parting shake and
stood up. The lynx yawned, showing
a huge red cavity spiked with long
glistening teeth, and rolled1 ove"r and
over on a bed of newly shooting catnip; but as a bunch of dappled feathers, torn froni:the released partridge,
came skimming along the sward, she
gave a' hissing isnarl and struck at
thcm viciously, her long claws leaving
little black furrows on the face of thc
sod. Then she sat up moodily, and
in the greenish-yellow eyes raised to
the accusing ones of her master there
lurked a gleam of rebellion.
"Lulu, I'm.ashamed of you," said
the man, sternly. "Go home to your
kittens."
Her eyes shifted and she half turned towards the path leading from thc
lake's edge, through the' tangle of tamaracks, pausing to cast a look back
over her shoulder at him. Her lips
were drawn back from her white
teeth, her short stub of a tail was
lashing angrily. The man took a step
towards her, ancl with a growl shc
turned and bounded away into thc
woods. -
With a shrug he picked up a cake
of soap and towel frorii the rock and
turned towards thc path.
The variegated tints of dawn had |
melted into a dome of blue and gold
and the morning winds were wrinkling the face of thc lake into millions
of liny waves. Close in along the
shore^among the greening rushes, a
flock of wood ducks wcrc feeding clamorously, darting and cross-tagging
and diving after the manner of thcir
kind. The man paused for a moment
lo watch them. Onc gorgeous littic
drake, fluttering up above the reeds
thc better lo display his glorious plumage to the dapper littic duck he had
selected for his mate, caught sight of
him and gave a little quacking note
of recognition.
He answered it, and immediately
the whole Hook of ducks came spattering, half swimming, half flying, towards him. They settled close in thc
lake before him in a half circle,
squawking, dodging, diving aud clamoring for food. He drew from thc
pockets of his decr-skin jacket a
handful of yellow, corn and scattered,
it among-them. As they dived frantically for the sweet morsels, a pair
of solemn black ducks winged in from
a distant nook of the lake and settled
among thcm with soft-voiced quacks.
A pair of .hooded-mergansers appeared apparently out of "nowhere to'mingle with, the flock. A lonely loon,
fishing, far out .^beyond, the" shallows,
came drifting sideways toward the
merry fcasters. ���..-'':
". The man turned his pockets inside
out and" offered the last-kernel.'
"That's" all I have,- my beauties," hc
said:- "You'll have to be content with,

With a chorus of alarmed quacks,

of .the.disturbance and turned with a

British Methods of
Destroying: Mines
Those Washed Ashore Are Rendered
v     Safe by Experts
Sir James Craig, financial-secretary
to the admiralty, in-a written parliamentary answer to Brigadier-General
Surtees,i outlined a method of dealing
with drifting mines.   '
First, a- destroyer from the nearest
naval base investigates all the authentic reports of drifting mines.
Second, the fishery-protection flotillas stationed on all principal fishing
grounds . destroy all drifting mines
met with.
Third, all merchant and fishing
craft, with few exceptions, are .sup-,
plied with rifles and ammunition, on
application' for mine destroying.
Fourth, experts in rendering mines
safe arc stationed at different' places
round' thc coast,-who render safe all
mines washed ashore.
No vessels are solely employed in
searching for drifting mines. The
number of drifting mines destroyed
by His Majesty's ships from'Fcbruary
to May 1 was 26.
Returned Soldiers
Flock to the Land
Lynching to be Abolished
South for Square .Deal for Blacks,
Says Educator .'
Prediction that the next two ycars
would see lynchings and mob violence
wiped out if whites and blacks-^only
"keep their feet on the ground and
maintain level-heads in these days of
stress and strain," was made by Dr.
Robert R. Moton, principal of Tus-
kegee Institute, in an address beforc
the Southern Sociological Congress.
"I think I know what I am saying,"
said Dr. Moton, "when I say that
there never was, not only a'more
friendly altitude toward thc negro,
but therc never wcrc so many white
people in the South /who are not
merely-desirous that the negro shall
bc^ fairly and justly dealt with,' bul
who are determined that he shall have
a fair chance. This.growth in sentiment with rcsiTect to seeing that thc
negro gets a square deal is reflected
by the determination- of such a largc
number of Southern Governors to put
down mob violence and to see that
the negro gets justice. As a result
of i this growing ���sentiment I expect
to see-in the next,few years lynching
and mob violence wiped out."
Records at Tuskcgcc Institute, Dr.
Moton said, show that thus far this
year; there had been six lynchings
compared with eighteen for thc same
period last year.
Large  Numbers Are Making Their
Homes in The Prairie
Provinces
During the past eighteen months,
I large numbers of; returned soldiers
have availed themselves of the assistance given by the Canadian government and a large percentage have
have shown their appreciation of thc
opportunities which the west offers by
making thcir homes in one of the
prairie provinces. x
The following figures will give an
idea of the material help giveiv to soldiers who have settled in Saskatchewan as compared with thc total expenditure for.that purpose throughout the whole Dominion. On the
10th of April the Soldier Settlement
Board had approved loans amounting
to $12,533,711 for settlers in Saskatchewan out of a total of $59,894,115
for the whole Dominion, thc number
of loans being 3,162 out of 15,540.
There are in Saskatchewan 2,86�� established settlers out of 13,497 for thc
Dominion and 9,266 men qualified as
settlers out of a total for thc Dominion of 37,005. Saskatchewan also has
89 men in training out of a total of
617.
Out of $60,000,000 in loans approved, .$32,704,744 is for purchase of land.
$1,850,944 for the removal of encumbrances, $6,569,458 for permanent improvements and $18,768,969 for stock
and equipments.
A return issued by thc board shows
that soldier grant entries have been
made by 6,625 returned soldiers " on

Advance Transportation
For Domestics
Manitoba Government Will Help To
Bring British Women Into
The Province
As a result of representations madc
to the Manitoba provincial government by Charles Robson, who has
recently returned from Great Britain
where hc was sent by the federal department of immigration, to enquire
into the outlook for the emigration of
British women to Canada, Hon. Valentine Winkler announced the intention of the Manitoba government to
undertake a policy of advanced fares
for bona,fide domestics.
"For the present and because the
undertaking will bc more or less of
an experiment, it has been decided,"
said Mr. Winkler, "to.limit the operation of the policy to 100 women. The
advance to each woman Will approximate 50 to 75 percent of thc fare and
the government is providing for an
expenditure of $7,500 this year. It is
hoped that thesc women will be secured through a country-operation between federal and provincial governments' co-operation.
Motherless Chicks
Should be Kept Busy
Mother Hen-Always Keeps Family
On the Move
A keen poultry observer will tell
you that a mother hen is always busy
keeping her family on lhe. move all
day long, excepting for short periods
of rest. Evidently she knows her
business, because she usually has a
very vigorous family by the lime thcy
arc ready lo shift for themselves. Undoubtedly the feed and the way it is
fed is the cause of more bother.than
any other one single factor. Many
mistakes are continually made along
these line due to a lack of information
or to thc careless application of tlic
same.-"- A chick hatched in an incubator should develop in a normal way
if thc machine is properly run. Hc
should come from' thc shell, just as
naturally and just as strong as if the
mother hen had done the hatching-.
But lo keep him strong and vigorous
is lhc big problem of thc feeder.   .
SHORT OF BREATH
Could Hardly Walk
0     Without Resting.
When you go lo a .physician to be
examined for any heart trouble, onc
of the first questions hc asks is: "Are
you short of breath?"
Now, when the heart becomes affected there ensues a feeling of a choking sensation, a shortness of breath,
palpitation, throbbing, irregu'ar beating, smothering sensation, diazincss
and a weak, sinking, all-gone feeling
of oppression  and anxiety.
On the first sign of the heart becoming weakened or the nerves unstrung Milburn's Heart and Nerve
Pills arc just the remedy you require.
They regulate and stimulate the heart,
nnd strengthen and restore thc whole
nerve  system.
Mr. Stephen Crouse. East Clifford.
N.S., writes: "I suffered for five years
with heart trouble. I could hardly
walk from thc house lo the barn without resting, as I used to' get so short
of breath. Doctors could not help
me. My wife told me lo get a box
of Milburn's Heart and Nerve Pills
and I felt better after taking them:
three boxes made me quite well. I
am now helping my son to work the
farm, and can truthfully say I feel
like a different man."

Only A Very Small Fraction of the
Solar Heat Caught by
*vthe Earth
All that the earth. has caught of
the sun's energy, for all the millions
of ycars that it has existed, is the
merest fraction of what the sun has
radiated in the same time, .said Sir
Oliver Lodge in a recent lecture.
Thc earth to the sun is like a printer's full stop at a distance of ten feet
from a cent piece. Some of the radiations from a-globe one inch in diameter falls on the spot one one-hundredth inch in diameter ten feet away,
but that littic speck only catches.the
hundred and fifty-millionth part of thc
whole. What has become of the rest
-of-the solar energy? -It must-still be
careering through-space. The ether
is perfectly transparent, and only
when it encounters matter will the
radiation'be mopped up and turned
into heat.'  "" ���'���...
Not-our".sun only, biit" al! thc" mil.-"
lions 01 other suhs,-have likewise al-;
ways been -pouring- out radiation into
space. Is there any hope of"catching
and utilizing it? Probably not." In'
spite of .all this constant flood of-energy space-is cold, very near absolute
zero: The .reservoir is so enormous-
that all these taps, running for ages,
have made no-impression.on it, have
not raised the level a perceptible amount.   -'���-        ^ '-   '-      - - -���

Ingram Mountain
Approximately 150 local residents assembled on the hockey
ground at Ingram Bridge on Monday afternoon, May 24, to witness
the match between the Ingram
Mountain and Kettle Valley
hockey teams. A most exciting
and fast game was played which
resulted in a draw, one goal being
scored by each side, Mrs.
���Shillcock did a roaring trade with
her ice cream and pop stand.
Grass hockey was introduced into
this valley by Mrs. Douglas Hamilton and tends to become a most
popular pastime in this vicinity.
This is the only place in the
Boundary district where this form
of sport is_ practised. It would be
a good plan if a few> more hockey
clubs-were formed throughout the
district. Get busy Greenwood the

Mr. and Mrs. Mewbride had at
last obtained a villa in a subuib of
London, and Mr. JSTewbride was
hanging the pictures. There was
a certain photograph of his wife
which he decided must go up, but
which was too small to suspend
from the rail by a cord. He thereupon got a substantial nail and
hammered it into the wall. There
came a knock at the door.
"It's Mr. Nexdor," said his
wife, ruuning to the window.
Your hammering bas disturbed
him."
Mr. Newbride hastened ��to apologize.
"Oh, I don't mind the noise,"
replied Mr. K"exdor, cheerily. "I
only came to ask if I might hang a
picture on the other end of the
nail."���Argonaut.
