. The ordinary way to measure distance. is by miles. You think any
place you have in mind is so many miles away. It seems a long way off.
1,09k at it an other way. Measure the distance by minutes. Say to yourself,
"Such or such a place is so many minutes away," meaning, of course, that
if the telephone is used distance does not need to be considered.
If you want to talk to a friend or discuss a business matter, no place is
very far away. Not only that, but the means of communication is always
right at hand. Every telephone is a long distance telephone. Besides, if
you talk in the evening, you can take advantage ofthe special rates.

Little Child Drowned
A sad drowning accident occurred on Sunday evening, June*15th
on Boundary Creek, about 2 miles
north of town, when little John
Edward Cox, age 2% years was
drowned. He was attempting to
wade across'the creek with his
sister Josephine, who is only
about four years old, but the current was too swift and carried the
poor little boy away. The body
was found by the father, Herbert
N. Cox, about 300 yards away.
Dr. Wood and others worked hard
to revive the child but without
avail. The accident is particularly sad when it is'recalled'that
Mr. and Mrs. Cox lost a 4 'year
old child by drowning in 1917.
Little Edward was the very image
of the one previously drowned and
the parents are disconsolate. The
sympathy of the entire community goes out to them in their sorrow.
The funeral took place on Wednesday afternoon fromT. M. Gul-
ley's undertaking parlors, Rev.
W. R. Walkinshaw officiating.
The funeral was very largely at-
tendedand there were many floral
offerings. The pall bearers were
Edward Johnson, Percy Fraser,
George Bryan, Lewis Mitchell,
Allan'Fraser, Harry Hallstrom.

Bad Man," First National production, which will be shown at

of the most noted actors ,on the
American stage, is the greatest
"Napoleon" the stage has ever
known. Several years ago Blinn
was cast in the role of Napoleon

the role before, but. no one had
ever presented a characterization

noteworthy that critics acclaimed
him as the greatest "Napoleon"

Let Us Understand One Another
The nttcd for a better understanding and a closer union between the East
and West of Canada is a common topic of conversation when, citizens i'rom
tho two sections meet; it is the subject of innumerable newspaper and maga- j
ziuo articles; it'is a favorite theme with speakers before Canadian Clubs and
other bodies.     The views expressed are invariably approved and applauded by!
those to whom they are addressed.     It may be assumed, therefore, thai it is]
the d< tire, of the average Canadian tliat tins better understanding should be
reached, and a more truly nalional spirit and sentiment developed throughout!
the l'Joininion. j
r.ui before tlie people of Canada can begin lo Ihink nationally, they must |
first, cease to think in terms of their own particular little community, and ofl
their own selfish intr-resls. Even more must people realize that, because j
sonii- certain policy or undertaking will directly advance their interests, it'
does not follow lhat Ihe adoption of such policy would be in the interests of
(.'-.inula as a whole. And, mi tlie oilier hand, people must realize because
they, er iheir particular community, do not stand to derive direct benefits i
from some 'policy or undertaking, that is no reason why they should oppose.
For Protection Of Wild Life
To'Teach Manitoba Children "Value of
Insectivorous   Birds
A plan whereby school children may
be  tiiught  the value of insectivorous ___.
birds is now under consideration, according    to    Charles   Young,  of  Vir-
den, wild game guardian for Western
Manitoba.     The proposal  is that, arrangements bo made whereby the wild
game    guardian    or    other    qualified I
speaker,    deliver    short, addresses in |
country schools. j
Mr. Voting lakes the position that ;
unless such, birds are protected, it
iwill become neces-ary to adopt some
oilier nii'lhods of destroying insects.
He had no doubt lhat. chihireiWobbed
the nests' innocently, rather than wilfully, and would not do so it' they
were aware of (lie value of such
birds lo the community n.s a whole.
Mr. Voting stakd that there is no
need for particular anxiety regarding
the busy beaver and the muskrat.
these days, their furs are of no value
at this time of .he year, and this fact.
alone, assures them of all tlie protection that is desired.
He remarked on (he fact that beav-

jiitly protected at
policies which will admittedly greatly assist other portions ol' Canada and add
to the national development and progress.
Thai is to say that lhe niuch-to-be-desired better understanding between
the East, and West of Canada cannot be realized simply by stressing ils need
and importance. It can. and will, only be brought aboul when a U-ss narrow
view- is enlrriained by ilu? majority of Canadians; when a broader national
vu'wp.imi and vi.-don is accepted; when a spirit of compromise is recognized
and acted upon.
The loudest preachers of national unity are to be found in Toronto, and
by the same token the narrowest conceptions of how that national unity is to
be promoted are entertained in the same city. Thus a Toronto weekly iitibli-
caiion  with a   Dominion-widu circulation  devoted  a whole page of a recent
issue lo an illustrated article in opposition to the completion of the Hudson's i ers are not- nearly so plentiful as thej
Bay it.ri'lwa.v as an outlet for Western products. Bul. this same paper is a | used to be. There are quite a minn
strong advocate of fhe deepening of the St. Lawrence in order to admit ocean- | ber along .the Assiuboine River, but
going vessels to the Great Lakes.
This Toronto paper also argues for the placing of a practically prohibitive duly on oul-of-season fruits and vegetables from the United Stales, aiul
In favor of the development of trade in tropical and semi-tropical fruits with
the l.rilish West. Indies. Even assuming that such a policy would work no
hartlsli.il) on the people of .Eastern Canada, what- about the West? Is the
West lo be denied such fruits and vegetables altogether, or are our people to
be made to pay the cost of haulage from the Atlantic seaboard in refrigerator cars? Can this paper not broaden its .vision to encompass the whole Dominion, ancl realize Unit what might prove all right for the East does not
necessarily apply to other parts of Canada?       ,.
A third example of narrowness of vision Is revealed by this Toronto
palter when it charges that it is the. declared intention of Messrs. Crerar.
.Forke, Iloey and other members of the Progressive group "to make war on
���industrial Canada." These gentlemen believe Uie best iuteresfs of Canada
as it whole demand a lowering of tariff duties on the basic implements and
needs of production, but that does not mean they are engaged in the tasl; of
destroying fhe manufacturing industries of the Dominion. Any such charge
is.both dishonest and untrue, and .the making of such allegations is not calculated io bring about, thai, better understanding and national unity which the
Toronto journal desires.        -     o "���    7 I
It would be just as reasonable to charge that, because it i* the'declared i
intention ol Eastern manufacturers to Jighl  lor the retention ol  evuy bit of \

Stolen Eggs and the Silk Trade
; Have yow paid your"7subscription to.The Ledge?;,, '"���.'
Above���IteelliiK silk In tlie Flowery Kingdom.      Below���-An  Empress liner loading -silk ut Yokohama
a Canadian  Pacific  Bilk special  passing through the Ilockics.
and
Production of silk'dates far into antiquity, and ior
ages the manner of its production was kept secret.
Up to the sixth century A.D. all raw silk was imported
into Europe from Chiiia, 'Dirt the Byzantine Emperor
Justinian induced two monks to travel into China to
procure silkworm eggs and though the export'of them
was punishable by death, these monks succeeded in
��� bringing back a quantity concealed in the. hollows of
their pilgrims staves.
From Byiantium, silk cultivation spread into Greece
and Syria, thence into Spain, and thence successively
into Sicily, Naples, Northern Italy and France, being
established In Italy in the sixteenth century.
�� Various determined attempts have been made, principally between the years -1622- and 1839 to establish
thg silk industry in America, resulting at one'time in a
not inconsiderable production, but the excessive cost
of the labor involved in the rearing of.the worms and
in the reeling-of the raw silk from the cocoons as compared with the trifling cost of such labor in Kurope
and Asia, has rendered it impossible' to produce raw
silk at commercial prices on this continent.
Most of the silk imported to America comes from
Japan, Italy and China where, aiso, the humidity of the
atmosphere contributes no little to the success of the
industry in those countries. The greatest importation
is from the Flowery Kingdom, and this mostly in the
raw-sUJk form as.it is reeled-from the cocoons.
Silk Is valuable.   Ia one consignment of a few hundred bales, hundreds of "housands of dollars are tied
up, and for this reason, tfeat no time may be lost in
���making up the raw material and placing the finished
goods upon' the market, the product of the little silk
(
worm is given transportation facilities which few other
commodities enjoy. The bales of skeins are stowed
carefully in. the vessels which transport them across
the Pacific, and in such a manner that they can. be
speedily and safely discharged upon arrival at the
Canadian or American port. No time is lost., Special
trains made up of passenger baggage equipment await
the arrival of the vessel if it docks at Vancouver as do
the Empress liners of the Canadian Pacific, and once
the valuable cargo has been sealed into the car.s the
train proceeds' towards its destination, often making
better time than the regular passenger trains.
For the reason that the route is more direct, many
silk dealers in New York, where;much of the silk is
destined, consign their shipments Via Canada and dur-,
ing'tfie past few months many interesting time records
have been made over Canadian Pacific lines.
On March ��� 22nd, the "Empress of Asia" sailed from
Yokohama carrying the largest consignment of silk to
be forwarded from .the-Orient for some timc. The silk
was specially stowed-for.prompt'discharge on arrival
at Vancouver, and from the time the-steamer docked,
until the special train to New York left, there was a
lapsed time of only thirteen'.and one-half minutes per
car. -."���--_,-..'
Tho silk was delivered ia New .York .about midnight
April 4th, the through time from'.'Yokohama to New
York being 13 days, 8 hours, and 13 minutes; calendar
time. This constituted a. record run.asv"far as freight
traffic is concerned, but passenger traffic-.'3s' handled
as readily by this company, a 21 day' Europe to Orient
service via St. John, N.B., or the St." Lawrence route
being regularly maintained. ������'   '���   W  -   =

���effttctivi! moans of bringing aboul :>. reduction in llie burden of taxation now
Imposed on the country, lias p'su'ied tn many suggestions being advanced
���which are hopelessly impracticable, because, in the final analysis, li would be
found tliat iht; losses sustained through in-Mlieieney would more than offset any
.savings effected through sued false economy.
Oilier __ugge&iions liavo been wade which are deserving of close and care-
���ful study as ihey are bocmttigly designed to effect, real economies without in
the slightest degree prejudicially affecting any public policy or service. Ono
���eucli suggestion, which lias found favor In many quarters, Is that tlu? membership of the Dominion Parliament and of the several Provincial Legislatures
he reduced. The fact that f'niiada ia notoriously over-governed is .strongly
urged as a reason for such reduction-,.
Some people have also ndvocaleu the union of the. three Maritime Provinces into one Province wiih one Legislative Assembly, and the same suggestion has been advanced regard Ing the three Prairie Provinces. ' There is
also a strong body of public opinion lu favor of the abolition oT the Senate.
While il would take a long Mine io bring about the union of these groups
'���'of Provinces, or to secure llie abolition of the Senate, if. Indeed, these things
���aiv de-.irable or feasible, there can be little, doubt but that no dire, results
would follow a reduction in the membership of Provincial Legislatures. On
the oilier hand, substantial r< diu.iii'ns J:: expenditure could be effected thereby.

New  Cancer  Discovery
Dr.
Serum   Treatment   Developed   By
Glover Not Claimed To Be
A Cure
A definite cure for cancer is not
claimed in the serum I'or treatment of
the disease developed by Dr. T. J.
Glover, according to physicians who
have been working with Dr. Glover ou
the new treatment.
Dr. M. P. Warmuth and Dr. J. F.
Donnelly, who have been tryiug out
the serum al Philadelphia on moro
j than n hundred patients at the Na-
' tional Stomach Hospital, express re-
grot at what they term the premature
publication of news concerning the
treatment.
''The cancer serum developed bj
Dr. Glover is not presented as a cure
and no such claim will be made for
il," tliey insisted. In fact, very advanced or ordinary hopeless cases will
have little to expect from it. * Tho
treatment is slill in the experimental
stage. . "The premature publication
of our work will have a tendency to
discredit it among medical men. We
are not ready to present it lo the medical profession. We can get only
enough serum to treat experimental
cases and we do not know when the
general public can be supplied. It
takes a year and a half to immunize
a person, so the serum production ia
slow. Dr. Glover is not competing
for the $500,000 prize offered by Lord
Atholstan, of Montreal, for a cancer
cure, Dr. Ddnnelly said. He added
thai Dr. (Hover was now '/out ol" tho
country,' but would return soon
resume his work.
Trying to Prohibit Rodeo
British   Society   Fighting   Practise   At
Wembley On the Grounds Of
Cruelty   .
"The members of the House, of
Lords knew perfectly well that the
Prince of Wales hardly liked to encourage a sport against which there is
the slightest ground for the founding
of cruelty."
In these words Lord Deninan in the
House of Lords replied to the attack
against the rodeo at Wembley, which
certain ���well-intentioned but misguided persons are trying to prohibit on
the grounds of cruelty to animals.
Lord Denman pointed . out. that a
well-known Canadian rider recently
won the trophy presented by the
Prince of Wales for competition at
(the Calgary stampede. The Royal
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty
lo animals is directing the campaign
against rodeo owing to the refusal of
the promoters to allow the inspectors
of the society to.have access It) the
animals. '     ...

Working On Beam
System Of Wireless
Marconi Will Shortly.Conduct Experiments In Long Distance Radio-
Telephony
The beam system was noi used in the
experiment recently conducted from
Cornwall, in which Signor Marconi
was enabled to speak by radio with
Australia. Mr. Marconi said the results of beam transmission which he
intended'to make the . "material foi
trans-Atlantic experiments in the future, undoubtedly would saiisfactorily
prove Its availability for "ii igh- speed
telephony i'or which he said his company was'prepared lo build large stations in various parts'of the world.
The inventor is certain the beam
can be cnconilfassed within an area
as narrow as^ five degrees and possibly less, and that by ils use he..w_ll be
able to obtain wiih power of only one-
'X tenth of a kilowatt as efficient trans'-

Says  Earthworms  Have  Memory and
7 Can Be Trained
Earthworms have memory and-may
be trained, it lias, been shown by Professor/ Heck, of. the University, ot
Prague, as the result of experiments
with a collection of about five hundred
worms. The worms were introduced
into a passage shaped like a capital T
and carved from a block of wood which
.was covered with a glass plate so that
the movements of the little creatures
might, be observed. When they came
to the junction about half of ��� them
turned one way and half the other.
Then the apparatus was so arranged
that those worms that took the left-
hand passage received a mild but presumably disagreeable electric shock.
At first the worms did noi know just
what'to"make of ali.thts, but after they
had been ihrougli the. experience about
two hundred "times, they nearly all
look the right-hand turn. AVhen thc
electrodes were then moved lo the
right-hand passage the worms learned
to shift to the other passage after only
sixty-five trials, evidently showing
something more than the mere operation of chance. In the human sense,
earthworms have no brains; their nervous systems'consist of a series of little ganglions or nerve centres, on the
under side of the worms and connected with each other by nerve fibres. If
the worms were cut in two, the fragments still showed the ability to distinguish between the safe and the unpleasant road to travel, indicating that
the earthworm remembers in every
one of its ganglions, and that it is able
to learn and profit by experience.

Minard's Liniment for Falling Oat of
Hair
Eastern   'Paper    Overlooks    a    Very
Important  Fact  In  Offering
Criticism
The Ottawa Journal is incensed be
cause the western farmers do not pay
more money to the government in income taxes. A return tabled in the,
House of Commons sliows ihat for the
fiscal year of 1922-23 a total of ?59,-
711,000 was paid by the people of Canada in income taxes and of this the
farmeis of Canada paid but $180,353,
or less than one per cent, of the-total.
"It is when people in the east contemplate such things as these," says
the Journal, "lhat they grow a little
weary of any western claim ol' intentional discrimination."
Now, as we understand ii, tbe people
who pay income taxes are those who
have incomes above a certain sum.
If you haven't an income you do not
pay au income tax; if you are lucky
enough to have an income you contribute part of it. lo the government.
The income tax law is very exact. It
is claimed by the government that it
is thoroughly enforced. Therefore,
if the rarmeis of Canada, both east
and west, are not paying income (axes
il is"because Ihey haven't the incomes.
Therefore, the Journal is railing at Ihe
fanners of Canada because they are
not. earning enough money���the lazy
beggars. Why don't thej make money
like some of the corporations do? Why
will they not go in for mixed farming?
The Joiirnul might' make a few in-
tiuiries_among_thn_lariurrs of Eastern
Canada as io why ihey are not paying
income taxes down there. If it consulted the records, it might find that
on a percentage basis tlie fanners of
Western Canada are paying'more Income tax than the farmers of Kast ern
Canada.
Perhaps the Journal will suggest to
the tanner* of Ontario that they better hustle into mixed farming and save
themselves and the country.���Manitoba-Free Picas.

J52& THB LEDGE},-GREENWOOD,  BRITISH COLUMBIA,  THURSDAY, JUNE.19,   1924
Conservative Meeting
John McKie, conservative candidate for the Grand Forks-Greenwood riding, held a rousing meet-
iu the Greenwood Theatre on Saturday night after the picture show,
J. It. JackBon occupying the chair.
The other speaker was W.K. Esling
ex M.L.A.. for Rossland.
Mr. McKie clearly  defined  his
platform and views,   and   made  a
strong appeal  to. the  electors  for
their support.    He scored the Liberal party, for its   continuation  of
pledge breaking and corrupt practices.    He  spoke  of   the  howling
disgrace .in   allowing  the Doukho
bors to live in this country without
abiding to the laws and further the
Oliver government  was encouraging them by granting them timber
leases.    They also made it difficult
for the white man to get a   lease.
Mr. McKie confirmed the policy of
the conservative party  to reintroduce tho Agriculture Credits  Act
which was put into  effect  by the
conservative party in 1915 but was
killed by'the liberal administration.
Mr. Esling followed owith  a review of the activities   of   the  two
parties in the last session   at Victoria and had date ancl place to refute the claims of the liberal party
for such   advanced   legislation  as
the Workman's Compensation Act,
Women's   Suffrage   bill   and   the
eight hour   law.    The   liberals are
trying to   take   credit   for having
given the women the vote.    What
really happened  was  that   at the
last session of the conservative administration in  1916,   a   bill   was
put through  under  which  at  the
nest provincial election the matter
should be decided by a   plebiscite.
The next general  election   was  in
September and voting on  the plebiscite, and the men  of  B.C.   by  a
huge majority decided that women
had a right   to   vote.    He  stated
stated that Oliver   was   trying to
make the  people   forget   the past
eight years   of   huge   extragance
by asking the people to   help  him
win the  freight rates  fight.    The
freight rates cannot be a political
" case.    Oliver has dealt  it a  most
serious blow by   dragging 'it into
7  this campaign. ��� It is not his fight.
. -'The fight started.in the old days of
' the Bowser-McBride goyermeut. It
,.��� has been carried oh year by  year,
'"'"by the hoards of trade, of  tho  pro-'
;. vince.    It was only when it seemed
\we were coining to the climax'oi

come in,; and it took the "strongest

Election Forecast
"The   return   of    the   Oliver
government to power with a safe
working- majority is indicated  by
reports  from    all   parls   of   the
province which   reached   the city
over the week-eud and yesterday.
Glowing reports of Liberal  prospects   in   interior  constituencies
which he has visited  during  tbe
past few  clays  were  brought  to
the city by Hon. J.   D. MacLean,
Provincial Secretery,   who  spent
Sunday  in   Vancouver   and   returned to his own constituency of
Yale yesterday.
"In Grand Forks-Greenwood,
my old seat, the election is going
more strongly Liberal than ever
and Mr. Henniger, the present
Liberal candidate, will have a
larger majority than I ever had"
declared Mr. MacLean. "We
had wonderful meetings, especially at Grand Forks and at
Greeuwood. At the latter place
there will be the biggest Liberal
vote in its history,, and Grand
Forks will be better than ever
before."���Vancouver Sun, June

E. W. Beatty, K.C.     	
interested in Canadian progress and
development. By reason of the way
in which the company's operations
touch all phases of Canadian life
and enterprise there can be no pronounced depression or prosperity in
any part of the- country without its
being reflected in the earnings of
the Canadian Pacific. There is a
(barometer of the country's foreign
trade also in the results of the operations *>f the company's steamships
upon the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Thus there was considerable reason for gratification in the president's statement made at the annual
meeting on Ma�� 7th, that the operations of the coupany had been conducted throughout 1923 in a satisfactory manner <s.nd with satisfactory
results. Mr. Beatty'pointed out that
gross earnings for the year, which
���had totalled $195,837,089, were
greater by $9,162,000 than those of
1923. Working expenses, however,
increased by $7,984,000 to $158,358,-
079. _ This large increase in operating costs was due to large expenditures made upon the property in
order that it might be kept to the.
���highest possible physical standard
and capable of rendering, the bes��
possible service to the community.
As j. result the property was never
in s.) excellent a condition as it
now is. Net earnings for the year
were $37,479,010. an increase of
$1,177,000.
The total tonnage moved by the
company during the year amounted
to 30,852,994, an increase over 'that
of the previous year of 3,108,408,
due to a heavier movement of grain,
lumber, manufactured articles and
general merchandise, the "largest
increase being in grain and grain
products. Mr. Beatty pointed out
that this satisfactory condition had
extended well into the present year
and that due to favorable operating
conditions and heavy traffic net
earnings for the first quarter of 1924 >.
had increased over those of the j
same period la&t year by $1,253,814.    *
Referring to the Government system  of  railroads,  Mr.  Beatty  said
that the difference between it and
the Canadian Pacific was largely in
name only and  in  the  accident of
personnel    of    shareholders.     The
securities of both systems were owned by private investors throughout
the world and there was a significant steady increase in both Canadian-and British holdings of Canadian   Pacific   common  stock.    Two
phases of the general railway situation called for criticism.    Under a
statute passed in -1919- the Government-owned   lines   may     construct
branches  without   approval   as   to
���location   and  other   details  by   the
^Railway    Commission.    Thus- they
may parallel or  duplicate existing"
lines bf any other company-once the
Minister   approves   and   parliament
authorizes    the    expenditure.    Mr.
Beatty stated that in his opinion it
was equally in the interests of the
Canadian' people and  of  all  Canadian   railroads   that  the   companies
should be in the  same position in
this respect.    The other phase was
the result of the Crew's Nest Pass
agreement of 1897. /It had established special statuary freight rates
under" conditions of operating costs
which no longer   exist   and differences in rates which would not be
permitted under the general Railway
_Act..because of their unfairness in
relation to commodity rates on other
articles and  to  tihe  rates  effective,
-in    other   parts   of   Canada.    The
greatest  advantage   to  shippers  as
a whole would be scoured if all rates
���were  made .subject  to   review   and
change   as  conditions   warrant   by
the  tribunal   constituted    for    that
purpose.     , ,   \
In   referring   to   the outlook* for
the future,  Mr.  Beatty   said   that
-while there was a-noticeable lull in
domestic "and export shipments due
in part to unsettlement in industrial
districts, general business during the
irnst quarter of the year had been
satisfactory.      The    crop-    acreage
would probably be about, the  same
as last year and,' generally/speaking, soil-conditions- were-,excellent.
"If the total yiefld approaches, that
of  1923,'-' said  Mr.   Beatty,  "there
-will undoubtedly be a very, .extensive
autumn business, and: a vastly imr
proved  psychological   and financial
-' ..situation throughout the, whole country.'.' There:is no real: ground, for
."" pessimism in respect of';the-future
of either the company, or the. coun-.

German    Professor    Claims    Artificial
Butterfly  Wings  Richer Than
Original
j Thc paint brush-of nature has becn
white- outdone again by science, according to
Cross 1 recent announcement, in which tho
contention, is made that by artificial ���
means the coloring of butterfly wings
can be reproduced with much more.effect and richness than the original
themselves.
Prof. Hans Zpzher, in an address
before the German Chemical Society,
asserted that he frequently had made
artificial wings which would mako
iny butterfly in the world turn green
or black with envy."
The coloring in real butterfly wings
is brought about by light reflections
on Ihe same principle which causes
soap bubbles to glisten colorfully in
the rays of light. Prof. Zozher explained that,ha used resin as the basis
in his experiments.

AVOID JMITATSOSS THE LEDGE), GREENWOOD, BRITISH COLUMBIA,   THURSDAY, JUNE 39,   1924
Conservative Meeting
Election Forecast
John McKie, conservative candidate for the Grand Forks-Greenwood ridiug, held a rousing meet-
iu the Greenwood Theatre on Saturday night after the picture show,
J. K.. Jacksou occupying the chair.
The other speaker was W.K. Esling
es M.L.A. for Rossland.
Mr. McKie clearly   defined  his
platform and views,   aud   made  a
strong appeal to. the electors  for
their support.    He scored the Liberal party, for its   continuation  of
pledge breaking  aud corrupt practices.    He spoke  of   the  howling
disgrace in   allowing  the Doukho
bors to live in this country without
abiding to the laws and further the
Oliver government  was encouraging them by grantiug them timber
leases.    Tliey also made it difficult
for the white man to  get a   lease.
Mr. McKie confirmed the policy of
the conservative party  to reintroduce the Agriculture  Credits  Act
which was put into  effect by the
conservative party in 1915 but was
killed byitholiberal administration.
Mr. Esling followed  with  a  review of the activities   of   the  two
parties in the last session   at Victoria and had date and place to refute the claims of the liberal party
for such   advanced   legislation   as
the Workman's Compensation Act,
Women's   Suffrage   bill   and   the
eight hour   law.    The   liberals are
trying to  take   credit   for having
given the women the vote.    What
really happened  was  that   at the
last session of the conservative administration in  1916,   a   bill   was
put through  under  which at  the
next provincial election the matter
should be decided by a   plebiscite.
The next general  election  was in
September and voting on  the plebiscite, and the men  of  B.C.   by  a
huge majority "decided that women
had a  right   to   vote.    He stated
stated that Oliver   was   trying  to
make the  people   forget   the past
eight years   of    huge   exferagance
by asking the people to   help  him
win tbe freight rates  fight.    The
freight rates cannot be  a political

Glowing reports of Liberal prospects in interior constituencies
which he has visited during- the
past few days were brought to
the city by Hon. J. D. MacLean,
Provincial Secretery, who spent
Sunday iu Vancouver and returned to his own constituency of
Yale yesterday.
"In Grand Forks-Greenwood,
my old seat, the election is going
more strongly Liberal than ever
and Mr. Henniger, the present
Liberal candidate, will have a
larger majority than I ever had"
declared Mr. MacLean. "We
had wonderful meetings, especially at Grand Forks and at
Greenwood. At the latter place
there will be the biggest Liberal
vote in its history,, and Grand

VANCOUVER BREWERIES LIMITED
The annual
statement of the
Canadian Pacific
Railway and the
report which the
company's president, E. W. Beatty, made to the
shareholders at
the annual meeting are matters
of first rate interest, not only to
the fast growing
number of Canadian citizens who
are part owners
in the great rail-
E. W. Beatty. K.C.      road,    but    to    all
interested in Canadian progress and
development. By reason of the way
in which the company's operations
touch all phases of Canadian life
and enterprise there can be no pronounced depression Cr prosperity in
any part of the country without its
being reflected in the earnings of
the Canadian Pacific. There is a
(barometer of the country's foreign
trade also in the results of the operations of the company's steamships
upon the Atlantic and Pacific oceans.
Thus there was considerable reason for. gratification in the president's statement made at the annual
meeting on Maj 7th, that the operations of the coiapany had been conducted throughout 1923 in a satisfactory manner And with satisfactory
results. Mr. Beatty'pointed out that
gross earnings for the year, which
had totalled $195,837,089, were
greater by $9,162,000 than those of
1923. Working expenses, however,
increased by $7,984,000 to $158,358,-
079. .This large increase in operating costs was due to large expenditures made upon the property in
order that it might be kept to thja.
���highest possible physical standard
and capable of rendeiliig. the best
possible service to the community.
As i, result the property was never
in s.) excellent a condition as it
now is. Net earnings for the year
wero ��37,479,010. an increase of
$l,r7'/,000.
The total tonnage moved by  the
company during the years amounted
to 30,852,994, an increase over that
of  the previous   year of  3,108,408,
due to a heavier movement of grain,
lumber,   manufactured   articles   and
general    merchandise,   the 'largest
increase being in  grain  and grain
products.    Mr.   Beatty  pointed  out
that this satisfactory condition had
extended well into the present year
and that due to favorable operating
conditions   and   heavy   traffic'  net
earnings for the first quarter of 1924
had " increased   over" ��� those   of   the
same period last year by $1,253,814;
.". Referring to the Government system  of  railroads,; Mr.  Beatty   said
that .the-difference between it and
the Canadian' Pacific was. largely in
name only  and  in  the accident of
personnel     of ' shareholders..     The.
securities of both systems were owned by private - investors  throughout
the. world ��� and there was - a signif i-,.

"���' In: referring to the outlook*., for
the/future, Mr..Beatty-, said that

in part to unsettlement in industrial
- districts, general business-during.the
��� first quarter of the. year had been
satisfactory. .The crop acreage
���would probably be about the same
-.as last, year and,;.generally speakr
ing, soil conditions were excellent.

Prediction That Farmers May Look
For Higher Returns in Future
"Although in 192o the Dominion
reaped the most abundant harvest on
record, tho returns to the Canadian
farmer were disappointing," said K.
If. Godfrey, head of the agricultural
statistics division of the llureati of
Statistics,_ Ottawa, in a paper road
on his behall before the Farmers' Club
of London, Ont. ^ The paper was a
study of costs of production on the
Canadian farm and convejancc ot produce to English ports.
"But this disappointment," Mr. Godfrey continues, "was due hugely to
the general excellence of the whe.il
"crop throughout the woild, which had
the effect of reducing tho prices. This
h a rare occurrence, and we may look
for a rise in price when world'conditions of wheat revert to normal."

Henniger,   Liberal   candidate  for

and convincing speaker. . Her remarks were well chosen a��d partie:

and clearly showed why -y the. women of the   provinca shoaiq  vote
for   the   Oliver   candidate?,     ohe_-
told of the matter of ;-tte- women a
franchise, mothers pensions and the1
miuimum wage act. She also
showed the good work done by tho
Oliver government at the boys industrial school and the incorrigible
girls school. There is uo doubt
that Miss Sutherland converted
many of the ladies to the Oliver
side.
D. McPherson was loudly applauded in his ver}T humorous address and took up the freight and
express rates case. This is not
ouly a political issuo. but au economic question as well. Mr. McPherson had the matter well iu hand
and gave statistics to show the
discrimination in freight rates between the east aud the west���in
cases they wero almost double. If
would mean a saving of raillious
of dollar &��� every year to
the people of the province to have
the mountain rates equalized. Let
Oliver finish the fight he has so
well started. It was a real treat
to listen to Mr/ McPherson and his
many friends here of all three parties were surpised at his forceful
and eloquent address.
The meeting ended with the singing of God Save the King.
Provincial Party   Meeting
The hiBt political gun was fired
in the present campaign in the
Greenwood Theatre on Tuesday
night by the Provincial party when
E. F. Keir, Major R. Gray, aud C.
A.. S. Atwood, the candidate, were
the speakers, with D. J. McDonald
president of the local association in
tlie chair.
Mr. Keir being the first speaker
dealt with the Convention at which
the party was formed, aud laid the
present depression at the door of
high taxation.
Major Gray was the next speaker
and gave a brief outline of General
McKae's dealings at Port Matin',
which absolutely refuted the
(.barges made by Premier Oliver.
He then contrasted General Mc-
Kae's military record with that of
those who had cast slurs on McRae.
He instanced Mr. Oliver's refusal
to answer direct quesHons by giving an account of hia own experiences with the .Premier- at  Rock
Creek. He then dealt with the
Public Works Department, and the
Liquor Question. The Major
stated that the Provincial Party
would replace the present Liquor
Board with a business commission
responsible to the Legislature and
nob to the Government as at present, as it was now just a closed
corporation of the members of the
Cabinet. He finished with the
prediction that the Provincial party
would sweep the country on Friday.
C. A. S. Atwood was introduced
as our next member and in tho
course of a fine speech took up the
pUtform of the Provincial party
aud contrasted it with what he said
would be the platform of the Liberal party and with the lack of any
platform of the Conservatives except the planks Mr. Bowser was
borrowing, one by one from the
Provincials.
of
iir.
He took up the question
freight rates and said that
Oliver did not go far enough, ��� and
all the premier was fighting for was
the cheap "through rate" to thc
coast which would effect only grain
and other through shipments to
Vancouver and the interior would
still be saddled with the terminal
charges plus the local freight rate
back to the interior. He thought
it pitable that after eight .years in
office, the government had no account of his stewardship; no reason
for the tremendous expenditures,
and no ��� platform for the future,
only a Freight Rates 0 issue which
was favorably looked on by all par
ties.
He said that tbe reason thc
Doukhobours now held 65 square
miles of timber under lease in this
riding was that . the government
could not lease blocks small enough.,
for the settler. It was impossible
for the small man to bid on' the
large blocks put up for lease. He
ended with the prediction that he
would be the next representative of
this riding and asked for the support of all tbe electors in tho name

The Farm and  Home said in 1921
in an editorial on Mr. Henniger:
"One thing is certain; no matter under
what banner Henniger travels, he will serve
his constituency faithfully. Grand Forks
will do well to keep Henniger where he is."
Do not be misled by
false. or extreme statements.   Henniger is as
good a man today as he was in 1921���and better.
