By the end of the present week the
new Hospital will be in possession of
the staff, patients and equipment from

of further new equipment installed will
be a source of credit ancl pride to all
who... have devoted so much time,
money ancl energy in carrying the project to-this stage. It is impossible for
the Board to mention all the names of
willing workers but local residents can-
themselves single out quite a few who

Rod and Gun Club Meeting
All the districts were well represented at the annual general meeting .of
the Greenwood and District Rod and
Gun Club held in the Kettle Valley
School on Friday the 23rd
After the approval of the minutes,
Secretary Major Gray presented the
financial report' which showed the,'
monetary standing of the club to be
in a healthy condition, the number of
members having increased to 36 with
no unusual expenditure incurred during 1925.
In spite of a strongly expressed
wish by the president and secretary
for relief irom office the meeting insisted on the re-election of G. S.
Walters and Major Gray for these
positions together with the committee
which served last year, Beaven Gane
and W. Walmsley as proposer and
seconder of this motion receiving unlimited encouragement from the
members in their explanation of the
desirability of the same gentlemen retaining their offices.
The President gave a lengthy report of the meeting of the'Allied .
Game Board at Kelowna on March
18th and refewed to his own contributions to the debates there as
printed in the Kelowna Courier and <
Penticton Herald both papers devoting
several columns to the business of
th'atrheeting. The resolutions passe'd
at'the Kelowna meeting were endorsed with the exception of the
recommendation that for 1926 twb
deer are allowed to be killed one of
which can be a doe. The president
gave his reasons' for supporting the
resolution but arguments in support
ofthe continuance of the regulations
allowing bucks only to be killed were
ably presented by Messrs. E. F.
Wilson and G. Harpur with the result that the meeting upheld their
views and the secretary will forward
the recommendation to the proper
quarters. *
The granting of certain commercial '
fishing rights in Chute Lake by the
Dominion Fisheries to Captain Creese
involving the exclusion of the general
public from this lake, which is not
privately owned, was up for discussion
and the president was warmly, commended for the opposition raised by
hinri at the Allied meeting and carried,,
through by the other delegates,
y 70n the motion of Major Glossop
and seconded by A. Lander, it was
decided that representation on the
newly-formed Provincial Fish and
Game Protective Association in Vancouver be arranged through the Allied
Board, this club agreeing to share the
cost incurred.
Mr. Walters reported his explanations to the Board of the difficulties
arising since the creation of the game
sanctuary between,the West Fork and
Kettle-River;���The-Board authorized^-
the local club to take the matter up
with-the authorities and assurance
was given of the backing ofthe Allied
Association. ���' After some discussion "
the secretary was instructed to deal
with the case as suggested. .._-
The question of open season for
merganser ducks was brought before
the Board by the Greenwood delegate
who stated that streams in this district, -
particularly Boundary Creek, , were -
being depleted by depredations of
these birds. Major Furberi the head
of the new game department under
the superintendent of the provincial
police, stated that at present these
birds were protected by International
treaty, but- as it was being proved
more and more each year that they
were merely pests, he was taking steps
to put them on the same status as the
Appreciation was expressed of the
help1: afforded by local   wardens of   .
game and fish departments on matters
relating to this district.
The fisheries overseer, .C. H.
Robinson, reported the placing of another 50,000 trout fry in the West
Fork arid the stocking of Long "Lake
with Kamloops trout. Boundary
Creek will ��� receive further stocking .
next year and the question of a fish
ladder at Cascade was dropped after
hearing the report of Mr.   Robinson.-
;; Arrangements for a/ crow shoot in
the latter part of May was left in the  ,
hands of the secretary.
".Votes of thanks to officials concluded a successful meeting.'

The Rossland Miner'says: "The
impression which got abroad to the
effect that the Trans-Provincial
highway to Grand Forks was in good
condition for traffic is misleading t.o
motorists. The highway is not fit for
traffic, a considerable amount of snow .
still remaining at some points, and. -
about six miles ofriie road near the
Cascade end being in bad condition.
Motorists should not venture that
way until it is announced the' road is
in condition for traffic." VUK   T/Rl>rt"R.   G-RTTFIXTTOOD.   B. 0-
Canada To The Fore
The geographical position of Canada .md tho United Slates naturally :-.ug-
���gi'sts contrasts and invites comparisons, and, as a rule, bolh, at home and
-abroad,-theso aro usually io the detrinumt of the _I>oiuii.ion.     Careful exam-
Jnaii.m will, however, establish the fuel, tliat   Canada   rail I y   presents   tho
.'.'.���oilier and more progressive and stable posilion..
Studied only superficially, people see Canada with a greater area than
the adjoining republic, but with less than a tenth of Its population. In fact,
ihey -note within an area of a few hundred square miles around and including
JN--\Y York City,-a population equal t.o iliai of Canada stretching from'tlio* Atlantic lo the I'adlic. '-'
Superficially Ihey see Mie gigantic industries of the United Slates, the
enormous accumulations of wealth, the rush aad bustle of its many large
Cities, and the boastful assurance of its people who believe, and do not hesitate to vehemently declare, lhat they are tlie greatest nation in the world.
In contrast they see Canada with, comparatively speaking, only a fringe
oi* populaion, with only a few cities o'f the first* rank, not very many nitilll-
miiiionaires, and the people as a whole, instead of being boastful, rather inclined to belittle themselves and Iheir country. *
This is tliUtiSitperficiiil pi dure seen by the average person who merely
glances at the surface of things and fails to take note of what is much more
significant. '
Are Canadians slow? Is the Dominion, backward in development; compared villi even the United Stales? The answer is decidedly in the negative,
as a more thorough examination of the growth and development of these two
neighboring countries will reveal. '"   ��� . *    ,
Canada today, with its nine or ten millions of people, is conducting as
huge a foreign trade as the United States did when it had a population of 76,-
000,000. On a per capita basis the "slow" Canadians arc doing a very much
larger foreign business today than the "aggressive" people, lo ihe south.
Canada today is producing .���more ���wealth from its mines than the United
States did with a population of 38,000,000, and lhe value' of Canadiau manufacturers at tlie present time is equal to the output of the United States fac-
. ories when tliat country had 50,000 000 people. The export trade alone of
Canada today is equal to ?13-1 per capita, while in tlie United States at the'
present time ills-only $3*7 per capita.

As a result, there is no other country in the world today, regardless of

after-lhc-war problems,_..nolvklistau(liug that lhe burden assumed by the
United States was a mere bagatelle, to that shouldered by the Dominion.
Why, then, decry the Dominion and make invidious comparisons with the
United States based ou a superficial'glance'at.size of populations, number and

present, boast of many huge fortunes, but it can boast of something infinitely
better, namely, that of all the go-ahead nations of today, none present a more

Furthermore, it is doubtful it" any other country today is so steadily and

To Investigate the Respective Merits
of Port Nelson and Fort Churchill
-Far from convinced lhat Porl Nelson is the port to become the terminus of the Hudson Bay Railway, the
Federal Government is advocating an
investigation to show the comparative
advantages of Fort Churchill and Port
Nelson. ��� While western members of
parliament have con_>ideied this a
closed question for years, it now appears that tlie government is still undecided as to which port"" the Hudson
Bay Railway should be built. Therefore their'proposal is to confine all
work-in the 1926 season to rehabilitating the present line up to Kettle
Kapids, and to send out survey parties and other investigatory bodies to
examine the,-two ports, This policy
is meeting with.solid opposition from
the Progressive party, which claims

Ancient Weapon Is  Priceless
Mediaeval Axe Found . on Sunken
Pirate Hulk in Chesapeake Bay
A curiously ornate and engraved

sunken hulk of a 17th century pirate

mediaeval pole-axe.
The sunken pirate hulk was a tradition among the colonists as early jls
300 yeara'ago. * The generally accepted version was  that lho vessel had
been chased into thc hay by a British*
frigate in 16J0, where it wag sent lo
^he bottom, perhaps alter a hand-lo-
tind fight.     The' muddy ooze of tho'
...".esapeako held it ftrmly'nnd not until a.recent lashing storm stirred the
depths, was it ever more- than a dim
outline, as vague as the tradition itself.   - -
The storm, however, revealed iho
upper decks of Lhe craft lo the Tangier islanders, who put out in boats
and explored the submerged cabin j
with oyster longs. Several copper j
dishes and the "mediaeval axe . came
up. The dishes were sold to a New

' Inscriptions
Religious beliefs regarding life beyond tho grave, held by Egyptians
more than 3,000 years before the birth
of .'Christ, may be revealed in inscriptions on _������ tones just discovered in (he
University of California Museum.
Two   stones   on which inscriptions
were carved served as the- jamb and
lintel of. llie tomb ol" Senneluni, which
was explored by archaeologists about
the time' the civil Avar ended: ,  Senue-
tura  probably was an  oflicer  of the
ancient king of Egypt and   served   as
a   guardian   of   the   Valley   of   the
Kings, where the tomb of Tut-Abkh-
Amon was invaded by- scientists:     He
may have been   the   founder   of   an
hereditary line of keepers whose duty
it was to gttard tho   tombs   from   the
depredations of grave robbers, -a form
of outlawry that is as old as mankind
itself, j.says Ur. H. F. "Lut/., processor
of Egyptology.     He expects to make

B.C. Industries Thriving"
Two sets of statistics recently made
public in Victoria are cited by experts
as indications of progress which both
agriculture and industrialism are making in this Province.
One.set deals with production in the
new South Okanagan tract and shows
that in 1924 in this locality 9,763 crates'
of tomatoes were produced; in 1925 this
had'increased to 20,020 crates.   In 1924
the cantaloupe crop totaled 1,268 crates;
in -1925 it-had  grown to 12,968 crates.
In 1924-110 apricots were grown in this
locality;   in 1925 no fewer than * 1,164-
crates   were   marketed.   As   to price:
Cantaloupes fetched Si.10 per crate in
1924;  in 1925  the figure had risen to
Si. 60    per    crate.     On    the, average
tomatoes yielded  S200  per acre, less
labor,  while in one case two acres of
cantaloupes netted S964.
* The other set of figures deals with
Industrial expansion  which has taken
place during  the last twelve months.
This table   shows that iii  1925 there
were 359' more employers engaged in
industrial pursuits.in British Columbia
than there were in 1924.   In 1922 the
industrial payroll was 5130,000,000.   In
1925 it had grown to more than 160,-
000,000. ' '    " * ,

The rapid development of the fish
oil and fish products industry on the
Pacific coast this year may necessitate the fitting up of three coastwise

fish meal and fertilizer this year.

C E. Hollihan of Birdsholm,7 had
some bad luck last week by losing 15
head of\ cattle that were poisoned by
hopper bait left on the farm of Ralph
Sifer, N. W. quarter 23-4-10; in
1913 Sifer lost seven head, aiid T.
Hanerhan six head.
The police from Foremost were
notified to look over the situation and
found three sacks of, poisoned bait in,
the Heathington buildings and''two
sacks in the Ross buildings. '
Anybody knowing of any poisoned
bait in old buildings better see that it
is put into some old "well as burning
does not kill the poison; cattle have
liked the ashes and have died from
the poison. ���Lethbridge- Herald.

has been*'.pronounced by many ofthe
