P. G. E. Becoming a Real
Railway at Last
Victoria, May 16.���The Pacific Great Eastern Railway,
that unwelcome foundling inherited by the Oliver Government from its predecessor, is becoming a real railway at last. So
reports Hon. J. D. MacLean,
minister of railways, who has returned to Victoria from an inspection of the government line.
The road-bed is in good condition
and plans have been completed
for the provision of a good service this year. Sleeping cars
and a dining car have been added
to the equipment and travellers
are now able to make the trip to
and from Quesnel in comfort.
.The minister states that while
the province is shouldering over
$40,000,000 of a burden in carrying the P. G. E-, still there is no
way of getting rid of the obligation and his determination is to
turn it in to a genuine asset. A
strong bid is being- made for a
fair share of the tourist business
coming to the province this year,
and before the summer is over
plans will have been completed
for the settling of many new
farmers along the line.
Hon. William Sloan," minister
of mines, has arranged for'a
splendid mineral exhibit from
this province for the Empire Exhibition, to be held in London
next year. Specimens have already been obtained from many
of the mining centres and others
have been arranged for. When
the collection is complete," the
minister of mines claims it will
show in a graphic manner the
mineral resources of. British Columbia and prove a splendid
medium of advertising the opportunities here.for capital.
In order, to promote-interest in
British Columbia lands among
prospective settlers from . Great
Britain and other parts of
Europe, Hon T. D. -Pattullo,
minister of lands, has appointed
Major J. W. Clark, colonization
commissioner for British Columbia in London. He' will work
under . the direct supervision "of
the Federal Department of Immigration, but., will direct his
efforts=; towards -... directing7 emigrants, to this province,.*' -.  .   ....

.. SGrangers; coming ' to _. Greenwood; are. ^impressed with/ the
beauty of tEe place, the grandeur
of its mountains.and the richness
of the surrounding country. '-Yet
there are people living here, and
sbme'of them owning property
who never say ;a good, word for it.
This is noti.the right thing.to do.
It.is not neighborly nor kind.

American friends when they come

from Youugstown, Ohio, the finest little city in the:state, and the
finest sta.te7iu the Union."' Some
oaevfroni Pennsylvanriia, another
from Michigan, from Illinois and
from half the states in the Union
have the same story to tell. They
are not here an hour till everybody knows where they came
from. "If we had this place
what a lovely place we would
make of il!" they say many times
while liere. Boasting a bit it is
true, but that is. better than
throwing mud, as we dojdurselves
so many times. "Boost jour own
town", is a good motto. Children
should be taught its advantages
in natural beauty, its resources,
its wealth, and of. every, good
thing that it has. :

A Charming Dinner

posilion in relation io this vital national question of an
for Hie Kasfera 1'rovinees is. briefly, this: Alberta has
On 1 ario has no coal, is forced to buy from the United
; millions ol dollars oui of lhe Dominion and forcinig up
of trade against. Canada, and in recent years Ontario has
been unable lo secure stttlicieni coal at any price from the United States to
meet the needs of its people: ihe only obstacle in tiie way of replacing United
Stales coal with Alberta coal is lhe long railway haul and consequent heavy
The President of the C.N.II. says ii. is possible, but not probable, that the
present freight rale cm be reduced sullicienily to enable,_\Jbe-*la coa.1 lo compete wiih l:.S. coal and slii! yield a sniall profit iqX'^, .ailway. Sir Henry
distinctly says they will noi haul coal at a loss���and, in view of C.N.It. finances, -rightly so���but this does not imply that ihey would not haul at actual
cost, assuming that the earning of even a small profit; would operate to prevent the business altogether. If there was an existing coal traflic between
Alberta and Ontario on wliich Ihe railway was now makiug a profit, the C.N'.R.
might, well hesitate I.o. forego even Ibis, but. as 110 such traflic now exists, the
railway would lose nothing by inaugurating a business which would entail no
loss, even if il did not yield a profit.
The mine owners of Alberta should regard this question in the same light.
They now have no business in Ontario; it is a new field for them, and, like
mosi business men. ihey could, well afford to supply coal to Ontario at a very
small margin of profit, or even-tit cost for a period while developing that new
market. Even so they would find it profitable because they would be able to
so largely increase Iheir output as to reduce all overhead expenses proportionately, nnd. by reason of providing steady. a.ll-Uie-year-round employment
for miners, greatly assist in solving one of their present big problems���labor,
including hours of work and wages.
The Ontario coal distributors., too, must, as Sir Henry says, be prepared
to do iheir part iu this great national and economic development.     Those now
engaged in  handling U.S. coal will probably be opposed to handling Alberta
coal at a smaller commission or smaller margin of profit.     If so, new agencies
for the.' handling nnd-disr.-ibuti'on' ol-Alberta- ,cbal" in Ontario-ran assuredly Vbe

Romance    in    the   Game   of   Settling
Farm Lands
(By G. C. Poster of Winnipeg)
Si. Paul, Alinn.���Tliere is romance
in ihe game of settling farm lands
from the viewpoint of this section of
fhe United Stales. It was through
this gateway that the D'akotas, Montana, Minnesota and Wisconsin received their crowds of homeseekers, the
majority from abroad, Central Europe
and Scandinavian countries supplying
unusual quotas, and it comes natural
for.the second generation of- these
pioneer people to migrate to the Canadian prairies and repeat the experiment in cheap lands. In other years
these states have supplied the cream
of the movement northward and there
are many indications that the movement from litis section will be heavy
this year toward the Canadian
prairies. ^
It. A. Garrett, a veteran of the service and a keen mentality, is in charge
of the St. Paul immigration station for
the Dominion Government, while
George Cook is the agent at Water-
town, S.D., and W. 13. Black is handling the Canadian Government's immigration business at Fargo, N.D. A. IT.
Davis is in charge of the Natural Resources Branch of tlie Canadian National Kailways at'St. Paul, and J. N.
K:-Macalister performs a similar duty
for the Canadian Pacific Railway here.
These gentlemen are vera, optimistic
over the prospects of immigrants and
land buyers going north this spring.
Their estimates of increased prospects
vary from fifteen to thirty-per cent.

Financiers   Say   Ford    Has   Replaced
John D. Rockefeller _
New York financial men declared
that Henry Ford is tlie richest man in
the world, following publication of the
Ford Motor Company's statement of
Its financial condition as of February
2S, 1923, showing assets of $536,351,-
939. Actual cash on hand was $159,-
Last February 2S, the statement'
shows' tlie profits and loss, surplus
was $359,777,592. Wall Street estimated net profits approximated $119,-
000,000, equivalent to more than $690
a share on the 172,465 shares of $100
par value capital stock _ outstanding,
which\Henry Ford and his son EdscI
own outright. . Wall Street further
estimated that the Ford fortune totals
something between $600,000,000 and
Ford is said to replace John. D.
Rockefeller as the world's wealth

depleted to .$300,000,000 by the oil
man's gifts, estimated in round numbers at $1,000,000,000.

Penalties for Defeat
How Failures Have Been Rewarded
In Some Countries
Two "hundred years ago the British
executed .Admiral Byng, of the same
stock as our Governor-General, for
getting beaten in a naval fight. We
have goty more sportsman-like ideas
since then. For instance, Jellicoe,
in his'first Jutland despatch, seemed
to consider that who won the battle
was a mere detail, and that the great
thing was the fine fight everyone had
put up, especially the boy Cornwall.
But in the Balkans they do things, differently. ..... Bulgaria has just sentenced six Cabinet Ministers to life imprisonment for having drawn her into
the world war in 1916. Six generals
also got prison and fines. This is in
line with Greece, which recently executed the official responsible for the
defeat In Asia. It is one way also of
solving the expense difficulty about
pensions for ex-Cabinet Ministers.
."Down Town Veal Stew"
1% pounds lean veal.
4 tablespoons vinegar, Vs teaspoon
ground cloves.
2 teaspoons horse radish.
[Vs teaspoon ground cinnamon seasoning of salt and pepper, buttered

\ Place the veal, which has been cut
into inch pieces, in a casserole and
stew slowly so that it will cook In its
own juice without burning. When It
is nearly done, add the vinegar, raisins, cloves, cinnamon, horse radish
and seasoning- of salt and pepper.

Farm Labor Shortage
Big- Movement From  Farms to Cities
Reported in U.S.
- The "back from tho farm" movement, Is now In full swing in the
United States, according to the New
York Post. "I-Iigli wages in the city
and low prices for farm" products are
having their expected result. 'The
agricultural department, following a
survey of 10,000 representative farms
and groups of farms, estimates that
during 1922 the agricultural population decreased approximately 4C0.000.
Had It not been for the excess of
births over deaths in rural districts,
the 103s would have been 1,120,000���
that figure measuring the net shift
from farms to cities. At the samo
time the agricultural department announces a marked shortage of farm
labor. Two years ago it tells us.
there was a surplus of 9 per cent,
one year ago even a surplus of 11 per
cent., and now there is a shortage ot
12 per cent. These figures contain
proof of the fluidity of American labor,
which swung to the land during the
depression of 1921, and now that
wages are rising in mills and factories, is swinging back."
Progress of Science
Story of the Development of Anaesthetic's For Use in Surgery
.   There   were   no anaesthetics when
Trafalgar was fought.     A man must
watch and feel his leg being cut off
and haveHhe stump dipped in boiling
tar  tp be  cauterized.      Anaesthetics
were one of the great mercies of the
late war.     They were, perhaps, first
used seriously by a United States dentist, Dr. Wells, of Hartford, Conn. He
suffered so much when he had to get
his own teeth pulled that he attempted the use of gas for his patients. That
a certain gas produced a harmless Insensibility had been known'hefore but
just regarded as a useless scientific
curiosity.     Dr. Wells tried it but gave
It up because he failed at first. Others
followed him successfully.     Sir James
Simpson,  a  famous  English   surgeon
was really the practical discoverer of
anaesthetic  surgery,  and used  it  in
mid-wifery.   He it was who discovered the^propcrlles of chloroform. When
Jesus Christ was crucified, the bitter
drink he refused was a form of anaesthetic provided by charitable people
for condemned criminals.     Ages before Christ a Chinese physician uscd
a drug derived from hemp to dull pain.
Hemp  also  yields  the liashish  with
which dervishes used to craze themselves    before    charging    to    death
against the enemies of their faith, and
also used by the first emissariess of
the "Old Man of the Mountains" who
.were known as "Assassins."

Canada Gaining Lead
As Auto Exporter
Premier Position Now Being Held By
United States
Canada is rapidly gaining on the
United States as the world's largest
exporter of motor cars and, according to no less an authority than the
New York Journal of Commerce, will
within a few years time hold the
premier position.
Although up to a few years ago Canada's export of cars was practically
negligible, last year's official records
show that the Dominion already exports half as many cars as the United
States, the only country by which she
ls exceeded In this regard. With the
rapid growth in the number of automobile industries now locating in the
Dominion this lead is being continually reduced.
.There are now sixteen firms producing motor cars in Canada compared with eight such industries in
1918, and a number of new factories
are to be opened up this year. There
are, in addition, ten Canadian truck
companies. The scheduled production of cars by tha Canadian automotive industry for the current year
Is .over the 130,000 mark.
Mrs. Matthews Pays High Tribute To

"I am so thankful for the wonderful
benefits I have received from the Tanlac treatment I just want to tell everybody in Toronto about it," declared
Mrs. . Ellen Matthews, 104 Eastern
Ave., Toronto, Ontario.
"1 suffered so terribly with stomach
trouble and a run-down condition that
I feared nervous collapse. My appetite almost deserted me and even the
little I did manage to eat disagreed
with mo, and I bloated with gas till
my heart palpitated and f was dreadfully short of breath. I couldn't get
a good night's sleep and was so worn
out I couldn't even do my errands to
the store.
"I heard so much praise of Tanlac
I finally bought a bottle, and it was
worth its weight in gold. Six bottles
have made me perfectly well, without
a sign of the old troubles I had suffered with for seven years, and my
weight has been increased, too. I
consider it a duty to recommend
Tanlac." '

Island Existed Long Before Stevenson
Wrote "Treasure Island"
Few people who have read Robert
Louis    Stevenson's    famous    novel,
"Treasure Island," with its "Fifteen
Men on the Dead Man's Chest," aro"
aware that there ls actually a place
known as Dead Man's Chest. Such a
place, however, docs exist, and it existed long before .Stevenson ever
thought of his novel.
Dead Man's Chest is the name of a
small box-like Island in the Virgin
Islands (West Indies). It is 500 feet
long and 200 feet high at Its highest
point; and, it bears a considerable
resemblance to the recumbent figure
of a dead man floating in the sea.
. It lies some five miles from Itoad
Town, Tortola, the capital of the British Virgin Islands, on the west side
of Sir Francis Drake's Channel, and
is uninhabited. The first settlers, of
the Virgin Islands were pirates, and
this Is doubtless the fact that gave
It. L. S. his inspiration.
Not far from Dead Man's Chest is
Norman Island, where there is a curious cavern, approachable! only from
the sea, and that at low tide, through
a hole in thc cliff just big enough for
a ship's boat to pass. In this cavern the burled hoard of a pirate's
treasure is supposed to have been
found many years ago.
The name -*'Dead Man's Chest" is
frequently abbreviated to "Dead
Chest," and is marked in thc Admiralty charts under-the latter designation.

with water, making it impossible
to examine the lower workings,

Kettle Valley, May loth.
Editor The Ledoe:���
Dear Sir,���
There is a saying that half a
truth is worse than a lie. I have
not heard what one tenth of a
lie is described as. In an interview
with Dr. MacLean published in the
last edition of Tho Ledge that
gentleman is quoted as. making
certain remarks with reference to
the Provincial party.
Firstly he states t-hat-"its leaders
are real estate magnates, corporation lawyers and others" of that
type." To refute this statement
the fairest thing I could do would
.be to give a list of the executive
committee consisting of 9 farmers
and 9 business men, this I cannot
do as I have not got it by me, but-
what I cau do is to give a list of
the most active members with their
professions who may well be called
the leaders of the movement.
Gen. McRae, chairman of the
executive committor, lumbering
and fishing.
J. Redman, vice chairman of
executive committee, farmer.
B. G.-Stewart, member of executive committee, farmer.
Mr. N"ixon, labour leader.
Dr. Macintosh, ex-Liberal,
M. L. A.   -
Gen. MacDonald, sec. of executive committee, engineer. 3
It is true that E, P. Davis, one
of the foremost.lawyers in Canada
and a life long Liberal and Mr.
Beaumont Boggs, real estate, one
of the most respected business meu
in VJctoria- and a life long Conservative are members of this party,
the latter gsutleman being on the
executive might possibly be classed
as a leader. Here you have the
oue tenth of the truth, ia other
words au absolute misropresent.a-
tioi s of the/facts. .7
Secondly, lie 6tates "It has some
supporlers in   the  rural   districts,
but these are chiefly   among  men
who live on, but do  -not   malie  a
a living off   their   laud."     Again
we have one-tenth of the truth.    I
can categorically state that 90 per
cent qf the delegates from the rural
districts"to the Convention,   90 per
