Greenwood Revenue Doubles
The Government revenues for
Greenwood and district for the
year 1925 are double those'for the
year 1924 according to official
figures furnished to The Ledge'
by the courtesy of P. H. McCurrach, Government agent. The
most reliable barometer of the
progress or otherwise of a district
such as this is unquestionably
the amount of Government revenue derived therefrom, as these
moneys are derived partly from
business activities in general,
.but largely from the development of those great natural resources which are the backbone
of the prosperity of this province.
The figures given below, however, do got include the 2% royalty
on ores-mined and shipped as
these moneys do not go through
the local office and no statistics
thereon are locally available.
The revenue collected by the'
Greeuwood Government Agent's
office amounted in 1924 to
S6747,93, ancl in 1925 to no less a
figure than $11,325-20. A large
part of the increased revenue is
attributable to greater mining
activity,' the general mining reve-'
nue of the office- having risen
from SL4S8.9S in 1924 to $2648.00
in 1925.
Inspection of the details of
these 'figures , shows that there
were 187 claims recorded in 1925
as against 32 in 1924; 103 certificates of work issued in 1925 as
against 88 in ^1924; 57 transfers
of ..claims .^ filed in 1925' as
against 13 in 1924;- 206 Free"
Miner's licenses issued in 4925 as
against 129 in 1924; -28 leases .of
rarerled crown granted claims
wereissued in 1925 as' against 18
in 1924. The above items make
up much-the largest proportion
of the general mining revenue
given above.
Among other sources from
which the local. Government
Agency receives its revenue are
the following: Motor Licenses,'
Fines, Game ^Licenses, Law
Stamps and .Court Fees, Trade
Licenses,.,-..Successions, D.u t.y",
Amusement Tax' and Poll Tax
All these items as well as others
not enumerated show an increase

Okanagan Man Has Secret
Ofthe Garden of Eden
�� Producing most ofthe apples grown
in British Columbia, '��� it was only a
question of time when the Okanagan
would produce a real apple joke.
It, has, says the Vancouver Sun,
and CoL Edgett of Vernon brought
it down 'to ^ Vancouver, ^11 polished
and wrapped in a short speech he
delivered to the B. C. Products
Bureau of the Board of Trade..
"We have ..had our difficulties
handling apples," he said. "From
earliest history of "man the apple has
given .trouble, It has been the fruit
of discord,   l
And yet, you know, some, think
it was hot an apple 'that dispelled the
bliss of the Garden, of Eden. They
say-it was a green pair."
The stone men continue to
have a great time at the curlings rink; The McLennan &
McFeely cup competition is well
under way and some very inter-
esting and close games were
played during the past few days.
The Warren cup final was
played^on Tuesday when H. W.
Gregory's rink was victorious
over R. Forsliaw's rink.
On Wednesday evening the
annual points competition was
held, with 23 taking part. ^The
ice. was soft and, shots . were
difficult tomak-a. W. V^almsley
won first priz�� with 20" points,
F. L. Peterson second prize with
16v points and R. Mowat the
cerisolation which was two curl'
ing stones made from onions
attractively covered with tin foil.
The prizes were presented to the
winners by P. H McCurrach who
made a very witty speech to
which the winners responded.
During the evening refreshments
were served by Mrs. R. Blundell
iu her usual capable manner.
The ladies have played a number of games during the past
week and their first competition
was decided on Wednesday. In.
the first round, Mrs. Francis beat
Mrs. Walters, and Mrs. Royce

' Graud Forks hockey team, accompanied by 100 rooters, came
over by special train on Saturday
evening and defeated the local
boys^ by 5 to 2. This ties the
tea'ms'with 2 wins each.
The Greenwood boys went on
.the ice in poor condition, only
four of thelplayers being in good
health. Morrison, Galipeau, Carlson and Hallett were suffering
from severe colds, while Taylor
was ill at home. This certainly-
weakened the team, but at that
the boys put up a great game.
m, The game was late in starting
it was 8:50 before the puck was
face-off. The players soon
warmed up and after ten minutes
of play Morrison scored for the
home team. This made the
visitors liven up, and they made
many strong attacks only to meet
with reverse as the period ended
with a lone tally for Greenwood.-
The visitors started the second
period with a rush and in a few
minutes after starting Pennoyer
tied the score. Ten minutes later
Clark made the second counter
for_ the Forks and before the
period ended E. Atwood made
the visitors third tally. ' In
the third the Forks added two
more counters by E. Atwood, and
P. Docksteader, while.,Morrison
scored for the locals, making a
fitaal score of Grand' Forks 5,
Greenwood 2.
The visitors were served refreshments after the game and
the special left at'11:30.��
Greenwood is playing ih Grand
Forks tonight in the first'game
of the home and home series with
goals to count, to qualify tor a
try at the Provincial Intermediate
championship; also to' decide the
winner of the. Boundary cup.

wtvtiuuwi good. Ua ti Rifled.
aers an
From ell her tlio contemplation, of abstract, phases oi life, or Lho din nnd
: busl.lt! of ordinary .affairs, it is refreshing to. turn to an occasion of robust, red-
Wooded companionship such as is called forth by tin ft association of fathers
aiul pons in tlio annual observance of Father aud Son Week. ;
There is'much philosophizing on tho Brotherhood oGMau, much dogmatizing* on the Fatherhood of Clod, but all is meaningless -without a proper ap-
)>i-(M:ialiou of (ho vital relationship belweon the individual father and the individual son.
No more congenial field for. development can be given a hoy in "which he
way discover the true relationships -which should exist ta Iifo than in the at-'
juosplierc of an understanding father'*; inlluence. And what, matters of vast
import in a-very few years' time depend on the impressions obtained in early
youth!  - W *
���A. long stride has been made from the days when tho old woodshed interview was about the only, occasion on which a father became intimate with his
son and slimmed up the then acknowledged position of ���the father as judge
snd disciplinarian; and that only, with scarce a thought more devoted io the
lioy's welfare, than to see he was home when required and out of sight-the
Jest of tlie lime. We are thankful that today we can point to the fellowship
af father and son in contacts'ruiming throughout aU the family activities,.in
xnany interests of the community and reaching out to things Provincial and
ev��n Dominion-wide!
To what niay we attribute this change? In a large measure It is due to
a keener appreciation of all the aptness and truth of the poet's slatement that
"the boy is father to the man,'' The fathers realize it in lhe winged passage
-of time, daily clipping the'opportunities"for them to prepare and inspire their
lads to greater things than they themselves have done aiul in the urgency of
���fulfilling their .privileged duty of leading out their boys toward atruer sense
-pf Tallies. ,'X '        [ '; ������*.'. ���'-.���������,....,-
The sons recognize it in the urge to look'beyond tho present to that dim
jtlitie' which forever beckons to youth���the time of tho realization of their
powers and* possibilities. And ttie sense of his not long tou>e delayed re-
sponsibilitydlirows hlmjmck to glean hungrily those Lru Ill's -which companion-:
:s'hip with a mature-mind might give him... And in- the..impact'of this seeking,'
:Cor the best in each, the father meets the sonnot merely .as a progenitor, but;
;as the sympathetic counsellor'arid guide, and the son realizes he .is riot- only/
.-the-male offspring,of this man hut-Is of the fibre of his jvery "hear UaiulysSRl
-and holds at his disposal the best of which, the,father iSj Ciipahle.'-X' [XxX:.-." XX

the Blood is Built Up
When tho blood is thin every organ
of tho body suffers. So anaemia
shows in Inligestion, neivouiness and
headaches as well as in loss of cokn
and strength. Many symptoms develop which to tho patient suggest
widely different diseases and so cause
much needless apprehension. The'
quickness with -which a supply of rich
led blood will drive away all these
pains and aches Is shown by tho result of treatment villi such a reliable
blocid-building tonic as Ur. Williams'
Pink Pills. The value of-this modi
ciin' is fully proved by 'the experience
of Miss Alice Sandbcrg, Ogema, Sask.,
who Hays:���"I can speak with the

Canadian Banks In Better
\ Position To Serve Public
One of the most complete and au-',
thoritafive statements over submitted [
legarding the Canadian banking sys-'
tern and the present banking situation'
was made by C. E. Neill, General
Manager of The Royal Bank of Canada, at the annual meeting. Mr. Neill.
said in pait: ' 'i
"Through amalgamation, the number j
of banks iu  Canada has been slowly'
reduced until the present1 situation is
analogous to the condition existing ins
Great Britain, where the groat bulk of
the banking assets of the country-is in
the hands ol five large banks.j Fears,
hare been expressed that the concern,
tratlon of hanking power In the hands
Lof a comparatively  -few   instltulions
may lead to bad results, such as siaedc-
ening of competition or .neglect of local
Interests. ,   Tlie 'feeling in regard to
competition seems to .have hactits In- j
ception in the fear of >Tiat majf hap-1
pen in the future, rather than as a re-!
suit of developments to date, for no
one can say that tho competition between banks is less severe than It has
beon in fhe past.    We believe .that
tho contraiy is the case, and that a
large, proportion of the savings affect-'
ed through-amalgamations have been
passed on to the public'in the form of
increased service and relatively lower
';'J'he merits of branch banking as
compared With a system of unit banks
are a subject of debate in ihe United
States today, and opponents of branch
banking diave stressed the advantage
to'local interests of having their bank-
In? business in the hands of local institutions, yhich aroi claiuied to^be
more, intimately in .'toilch with conditions at the-points, concerned. :For
Canada,'however,"the   arguments ;in
'favor of branch' banking are, in my
opinion, immeasurably stronger thair
anything -which can be said on thb
other side. In tho development of
new districts in this country the necessary funds have been supplied from"
older districts, and'at much lower average rates" than those current in the
irnlted States ' at-, the' same relative
stage^oLdevelopment -.The banking
history of the United States, moreover, contains a long list of banks'
which have lailed, either through lack
of proper perspective ' during hoom
periods, or because in'distrlcts "where'
everything depends on the success of
one crop or one ��� industry, the local
banks had all their eggs in one basket'
I have no hesitation in saying that had
Western Canada been served by unit
banks the situation in 1921-22 would
have becnsnothing short of* calamitous.
"A great financial institution" such
as The Royal Bank of Canada, covering the whole country; must hare intimate, pers-lstent and active interest
in'every part'of Canada. We have..
responsibilitU'S not only^to our-slifirc"-'
holders, but, to a degree which I hope
wc-fully-realize, to the public-o�� Canada; in fact,'there is no conflict of;in-
terest/because it is only to tlie extent
lhat "tfe contribute to the'sound economic development of the country that -
we shall deserve-or receive tbe'confidence of tho public. Self interest
-will prompt us< to secure a diversity,
of risk through the encouragement of
flip industries indigenous tb the vari--
ou's pails of .our, country, and to keep
ahvays before us the fact that we can
achieve, the greatest measure of sues-
cess only" If our actions and policies
promote aiid^foster the.besl interests
of'every partof Canada."

Carmi-Kelowna Road
In these days of highway building
it is not ^advisable to" overlook the
Carmi-Kelowna extension as a feasible
northern"route to the Okanagan. It
is understood that two Kelowna residents will make a preliminary survey
erh the uncompleted ������ portion of the
road between Joe Rich's and Carmi
early next spring. This is a move in
the right direction and should be
followed up by the-'united efforts of
the citizens of the Boundary and
Kelowna districts to bring before the
Provincial Government the need of
this road, which will open a large
stretch of country for settlement.
J* C. Dale, an old timer of Carmi,
is an enthusiastic booster for this road
and never misses an opportunity to
biing the issue before the public.
Mr, Dale recently wrote the Kelowna
Courier and weave reprinting his letter
along vvith the Courier editor's remarks, which should be of interest-to
our readers. W-

Jim Dale's Carmi Letter
"In reading the Vancouver Sun of
thc 5 th inst., I saw an article copied
from the Princeton 'Star, advocating
the construction of a road 'down tlie
east side of Okanagan Lake "to connect Kelowna with the country to the
south, In that article Mi.. J. W.
Jones, M.P.P. for South Okanagan,
is quoted as saying that the proposed
road on the eastVside of the lake is
the only way to reach ��� the south
country, but I would like to call the
attention of Mr. Jones and of any
other persons to the fact that there is
another and much 'better way to connect* Kelowna with the south than
the one he advocates, and that* is by
way of McCulloch, connecting'the
road that is already y,,built from
Kelowna to McCulloch and completing the link from McCulloch to
Ciirmi, which is,only/23 miles, three
miles, of which was built last year,
leaving only twenty miles of new road
to be built   .." ;,
This route would furnish the most
direct road from Kelowna" to connect
with the Trans-Provincial Highway
at Rock Creek, the distance between
these points being about #4 miles, or
routes. Notonly-that, but the grades
are better than of any other connection that could be made between
North and South. The route will
give, tourist's from Eastern Canada
and as far South as Mexico a straight
shoot as far North as they wish to go.
��� Now, Mr. Editor, I hope you will
give this feeble effort of mine.space
"in your valuable paper, _ and that .you
will help to*interest your readers to
take hold and push this, road through,
which3 I aft sure, is to our common
The Kelowna Courier Editorial Note
"The people of Kelowna would
like very much to have both roads,
and, as Mr. Dale probably knows, an
agitation has been kept up more or
less continuously to have the existing
road to McCulloch improved and extended to Carmi, but without result
so far. In fact, the Department of
Public, Works closed the road from
Kelowna to McCulloch over a year,
ago, on the ground that it was in a
dangerous condition from slides and
decayed bridges.. The "Department
has refused to spend any money upon
repairs to the road, presumably because it ends blindly at McCulloch
and its usefulness is therefore very
limited,   y
With the- approaching completion
of the link with the Coast throughithe
Fraser River canyon, it is generally
felt thaty, efforts for the tinie being
should be concentrated upon securing
construction of the Kelowna-Nara-
mata road, which js the missing link
in the main north and south Okanagan
y Highway, and in which the Okanagan
Valley as'a whole is naturally-, more
interested "than, in the route via the
*. Kettle River. Xy
.--��� Neither can * it be overlooked that
the road from Kelowna tp McCulloch
at bestywillalways be of the mountain
- type, with ,:a rise 10I three thousand
feet to overcome in about fifteen miles
of its wholeylength of approximately
������ twenty-six, so tKat it will not be feasible to keep it open during the winter
months.* The",drop-off from McCulloch to - Kelowna is much more
pronounced than on the Kettle Rivcr
side, Carrrii bein-? over one thousand
feet higher than Kelowna, -hence thc
road grade on the east side of the McCulloch divide is naturally much easier
than on the west side, and Mr. Dale
probably has the circumstances of his
environment more particularly in
mind when he speaks of easy.grades.
"The Kelowna-Carmi road will be
completed some day, which wilLeome
all the-earlier if the people of Kettle
River will push for it with all the
vigour they possess. The. people of,
Kelowna will be glad to assist later, ���
but at the present'time it is the general opinion that, th* Kdowna-Nara-
matta route-is indispensable and thai
it would be fatal to any hope of success of securing construction of that
road to prosecute a'crusade 'now: Lit
favour T of the Kelowna - Carmi
project."   .

Here is what.the ,"Motor News" says about it: "This wonderful highway,
wide and smooth, and hard and level as any the old Romans or.the modern
Americans ever built, is in the Canadian Rockies. For 114 miles it twines
its tortuous way through,'.unbelievably magnificent mountain scenery, from
Ba.nS. the world-famous resort in Alberta,-to'Lake Windermere, in British
Columbia, clinging to-the brim of sheer precipices, cleaving through sheer,
canyons, skirting giant mountains, spanning giant rivers, overlooldng'giant
valleys and affording the most soul-shaking views of rivers and valleys and
mountains btretching away and awayfever so far, ever so deep, ever so
high, for eyer*.and. ever,,amen."     .1    7 ;
The mountains goa*s and sheep, incidentally, are quite tame and-little
groups of the mild-mannered creatures not infrequently make themselves
at home in"the middle of the roadway, and gaze wondefingly at the Lord
of Creation who wait impatiently'in their cars for pejmission to pass. 'Xy: X
