Vessel  Mapping  Pacific
Is Well Equipped
Captain Can Determine Position Without Leaving   Radio  Room I
Equipped with a radio position find-'
er and a sonic depth measurer, the
steamer Guide of the United Slates
Coast, and Geodetic Survey, which has ���
recently em 'red upon the task of
mapping the waters off the Pacific
coast to a depth of 1,000 fathoms,
was pronounced in the uflli.es of the
survey al Seattle the most up-to-dato
vessel I'or her work in the world.
���The    devices    of the    Guide   grew j
out of co-operative efforts 10 combat
the    submarine    In    the World AVar.
These  off or In  engaged  the army,  the
navy ami many American civilian electricians.     The study has been continued since the w.ir. particularly by lhe
Coast Artillery Corps of the army. The
Sound .Laborator\   of   the   Uureau   of
.Standards   developed    (he   apparatus!
used   by  the' Guic.e  to  del ermine  her]
position.
Knowledge of Ihe transmission of
sound gained in these efforts and
applied aboard the Guide, enables
her commander to^-determiiie her
position and Ihe depth ol* water in
her vicinity without, leaving her radio
���room.
To get the position of the Guide a
small TNT "comb is exploded tisiern
twenty feel under the surface,of the
water. This is done electrically,
'life sound wave sel in motion by
the explosion travels in enlarging circles. When this wave reaches a
hydrophone (a device sixty foci, under
th.e surface of Ihe water and about
half a mile from cslioro. to which a
cable runs) the.hydrophone sends a
signal ashore, ami a shore station automatically sends a radio signal lo lhe
Guide..
Figuring fiom the speed af travel
of Ihe sound, the commander of the
Guide quickly determines his "distance from the shore station. And
determining his' distance from- two
stations he knows his position.
The task taken up by the Guide, and
on which she is to work in ihe summer off Oregon' aud Washington and
in winter off California,, was dropped
in 1.922 by llie Lydonia. --���' ,f '     ���   '���

It was a gay day when the report

her by the English medicine man, for
no one could fail to notice the sweet
spirit, and lo wish fer victory in the
stern battle brought, 011 through her
unselfish act.
One day In tlr-? evening, the missionary found lier'. oh so quiet and worn,
but gentle us ever. She could speak
a little lOnglish ancl teemed glad to
think that, she was cared for.
"Well, Belsy," said the missionary,
"you have been very ill."
"Ves," she answered sweetly" "very
ill, but the good light the white man
brought has been shining ln my heart
and all is well."
"We are glad, Betsy," said the-missionary, "that God is going to spare
you. We could ill do without, you.
Vour life iias been a benediction to
the whole reserve." =
"Oh, Missionary," said Betsy,
weeping, "do not say ihat. When I
Ihink of the story of His love if makes
me ashamed. But 1 do wish my people could fuel and know as 1 do. T
would like to stay among, them for a
little while. I'or 1 love them. '.But
sometimes I..,have a feeling in my
heart, that perhaps it is not to be. I
had a dream last night, Missionary.
Would you like lo hear it?"
"Ves, Betsy," he replied, "but :ire
you strong enough lo lalk so long?"
"Oh, yes; 1 feel .quite strong this
evening,  thanks io lhe while doctor.

too beautiful to describe! And J said,
o'Have you come for me?' "No," said
a voice, 'not yet.' And 1 Thought 1

REFERENCE TO
RECIPROCITY IS
INHOUSE
Ottawa.���-There was a. brief refer-^
ence to. reciprocil3r with the United
States in, the House of Commons,
when on a- voleor$20,000 for expenses
in_.��onnection with the. negotiation of
treaties, Sir Henry Drayton, .former
finance minister, expressed the view
that suchxa vote was hardly necessary,
adding that a trip to Washington
would not cost very much.
Hon. J. A. Hobb, acting minister of
finance, replied, that a trip to Washington might not. cost very much, but

Premier Dunning spoke of the pioneers in the Canadian, western provinces and also referred to immigration
. inlo that country. ' There was no
room, he said, for immigrants to pick
I heir jobs. He understood there-had
been regrettable allu'sicns to-the emigration of the- young manhood from
Britain, but England should-nortorget
lhat emigration.from Britain-had built
up almost useful league of nations under the British flag. At present the

Regina, Sask.���L. C. Brouilette,
secretary of the wheat pool organization and vice-president of-the
Farmers' Union, expressed his entire confidence in tlie executive of
the union ancl his approval of what
had been done by ihat body. At
the same time he voiced regret
over the original statement given
out by W.. M. Thrasher, in which
the latter branded the confidential
circular soliciting support of Farmer Union delegates to the pool as
an over-reaching of authority on
the pari of the secretary. As to
the movement to gain control of

dissatisfaction. The board had awarded increases in pensions wherever
possible, according to the statutes as
amended in 1923.

WILL MAKE NO
MILITARY PACT
WITMANCE
London.���Premier Ramsay MacDonald, iu a statement in the House of
Commons, explained his recent visit
to Paris ancl discussion with M. ller-
riotl, the French Premier, on the reparation situation. Jt. is evident from
this statement lhat Mr. MaeUoimld
has gone a long way to allay French
resentments and susceptibilities, even
to Ihe extent of temporarily giving up
some of his own positions in un endeavor' to help the Herriott .Govorn-
meht ward off an initial attack by the
Poincare bloc iu t.lie French Senate.
Jf has been agreed hy the Uritish
ministers and Liberal leaders to
await the outcome of the debate' iu
the French Senate before tic-bating i.he
subject in the British Parliament.
In ihe" memorandum' accompanying '
the original Uritish invitation to
Italy, Belgium and Japan to attend
an'Inter-Allied conference, ihe British
Government proposed that iiv the event
of a German default, the matter might
be referred to th<�� League of Nations
or The Hague ���arbitration tribunal,
thus lining it out of the hands of the
'ReparationCommission. Tt was this
prospect that caused so much resent- ":
ment in France and gave M. Poincare
"a weapon with'which to attack Premier Herriott.
The British Prime Minister's statement shows that the idea of reference
to the League or The Hague has been
dropped, and that-in its stead an endeavor; was being made to secure
American help for such arbitration
duties. *     .
"Two other important points came
out in Premier" MacUonald's statement, namely, tliat the British Government declined to associate" ,t;he
question of inter-allied debts with >
the expert's report,, andfwould equally,
refuse to agree to any military pact
with France.

News From the Capital
Victoria, July 16,th.���Despite
the keenest criticism of taxation
methods in this province, it ia
shown conclusively that the levies
imposed at present are as fair as
can be expected. A conference on
general taxation was held recently
between Premier Oliver, Hon.
John Hart, minister of finance,
ancl provincial assessors. After
going into matters thoroughly, thc
Premier said he was satisfied that
' the assessors had their work well
in hand. Furthetmbie, he could
not see where tbe present plan of
assessments could bo modified
downward.
In a spirited address here, Hon.
T. D. Pattullo, minister of lands,
maintained that British Columbia
was the finest place on earth for
the young man.. He urged more
young men to leave the cities aud
do a little pioneering, claiming
that iu this way many who would
otherwise still be working for
wages twenty years hence could
accomplish big things for themselves. The minister said there
was room for thousands of prospectors. If he were a young man,
he said, nothing would suit him
better than to tie up to an experienced prospector and hit for the
hills. The lumbering industry
held good openings for the young
man who would go into the woods
and learn the business thoroughly.
He could own a mill of his own in
due time.
" ''Fishermen operating out of
Prince Rupert are getting rich,"
said Hon. Mr. Pattullo. "And
there is room for lots more. Working on the land to-day is a.picnic
compared with the days of the
pioneer."        ..... ���   '���    ���   .

The Grasshopper Pest
Grasshoppers are more numerous than usual in the district this
year and in somc instances have
destroyed considerable grain.
Regarding- this matter, the
Okanagan independent states:
"From a number of careful investigations made by Horticulural
Inspector S. P. Scott at Tonas-
ket, Oroville and Okanogan districts, it has been found that
where poisoued bran material for
grasshoppersjias been allowed to
ferment and then used, it has
proven doubly attractive to the
hoppers. Several instances have
occurred where tbe moistened
mixture was not promptly uscd
and fermented in the sacks and
users then reported that 75 per
cent, or more of the hoppers'were
killed.
"Mr. Scott ��.ives the following
formula   for  individual   mixing:
"Twenty pounds of bran or
bran and sawdust, (Best results
have been obtained from three-
fourth bran and one-fourth, saw-
bust, Mix dry with one pound cf
white arsenic' Then mix together oce-half gallon mbllasse?,
six lemons, with three or four
gallons of water and pour over
the dry material."
Another weekly newspaper has
been added. to the journalistic
graveyard in this province, when
the Kamloops Telegram took over
The Kamloops Standard Sentinel
on July 11th and the two papeis
will be merged in The Kamloops
Sentinel . to be published twic-.i
weekly. This step has been taken
on account of high cost of production and the impossibility of two
newspapers making a livelihood in
ti city the size of Kamloops.!   - 7 ���"���
