Great headway is being made towards putting the Providence Mine in

by Messrs. Loomis and Wilson. Timber and lumber are on the ground for
erection of the necessary buildings
and the carpenters have started work

Considerable improvement has been

Peace and Agriculture
Every country in the world is still staggering1 under the enormous burden of the war debts which each and everyone is carrying. Even countries
lhat were not actually engaged in the Great War v/cre none the less put to
hc&vy expense and sustained huge losses as a result of that titanic struggle.
The people of Canada know what it is costing1 them. They have been called
upon to pay income taxs, excess profits ahd business profits taxes, sale tax,
stamp taxes on cheques, receipts, matches, increased postage rates, etc., etc.
A aide allogetner from loss of life, and in maimed and suffering humanity, the
liu^e monetary loss of war is every day being brought home to thc peoples
of the world.
Only recently announcement was made that fourteen shillings of every
twenty pa\d co the Eritish income tax collector goes to pay for past wars and
preparation5 for future wars. And now the Secretary of the United States
Treasury explains in his annual report how approximately eighty-two cents
of evcry^dollar paid into the Treasury is expended for past, present, or future
military purposes, leaving slightly less than eighteen cents for financing the
ordinary civil functions of government.
In other words, as one paper puts it, while eighty-two cents of every
- dollar collected from the tax payer is devoted to war "purposes, only eighteen
cents is spent by thc Government for thc purposes of peace, agricultural
���research, erection of public buildings, scientific investigation, the maintenance of diplomats abroad, the making and enforcing of laws, and all the
multitudinous forms of ordinary civil functions added together.
These figures would seem almost incredible even for a country in war-
ravaged Europe, but stated officially by a member of the United States Government as applying to that country enjoying such a large measure of isola-
cion from the entanglements forced on many European nations, and itself
practically immune from attack, the facts ancl the thoughts to which they
give rise are appalling.
Faced with such a situation it is sniall wonder that the masses of the
people of the world are crying desperately for,.,international agreements and
tribunals outlawing all war, ancl that the more far-seeing* statesmen in all
countries are anxiously striving to find some formula, some basi.s, of common agreement.      >*
But human nature continues to be very much what it always has been,
" and so, while the world is crying1 for peace, and the United States loudly
advertises itself as the great apostle of peace, its people are nevertheless
being incited through a flag-waving campaign, and in thc name of one hundred per cent. Americanism, to sanction the inauguration of a "world's
greatest navy" policy and the expenditure of billions of dollars upon battleships, and more battleships, which will be obsolete and placed upon Uiu
scrap heap before the babies of today reach middle age, unless, indeed, the
very existence of such a navy does not invite a struggle in which some ot
the ships will be destroyed in battle amid the flare and roar of thoir own
And while this madness continues, ancl debt is piled upon debt for the
people to bear, civilization is demanding better schools, better roads, better
, housing, more of the joy and happiness of life. The cost of one modern battleship devoted to agricultural research would work a reformation in food
Business Men Meet Farmers
Plan In Manitoba To Establish Closer
Representatives of the United
Farmers of Maniloba and members of
the Greater Winnipeg* Board of Trade
conferred recently in an effort to establish closer relations between business men and fanners of Manitoba in
solving special problems of agriculture.
Under a plan discussed, representatives of business and of agriculture
might get together as occasion might
require to deal with specific problems
affecting the farming districts.
The conference followed thc suggestion of Premier John Bracken, of
Manitoba, made at the 1027 annual
meeting of thc Canadian Chambers of
Commerce, that a closer relationship
bo established between commercial
and agricultural interests of tiie Dominion.

People Who Have Used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills Speak Of    ���
Them With Praise
"Going into a decline" is an expression that has come to be known as
one of -lhe most diflicult conditions
with which physicians havc to deal.
It often describes an alarming condition because it does not yield to ordinary treatment and the debility
continues with loss of flesh and
strength until the patient feels hopeless. In the' majority of such cases
the victim suffers from lack of good,
red blood, and if the blood can be restored to normal no other medical
treatment is necessary. Proper food
and sunshine will do the rest.
Every man, woman and child who
lacks health and strength should at
once take Dr. Williams' Pink Pills to
build up their blood supply. The mission of this medicine is to make new,
rich red blood, which speedily restores health and strength. "I am
writing to tell you what Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills have done for me,":says
Mrs. J. I-I. Oulton, Firdale, Man. "A
few years ago I was In a badly-rundown, condition, so much so that I was
subject to fainting spells which would
leave me in such a condition that 1
could hardly go about. Then I was
stricken with influenza and this further weakened me, and throughout
the winter I remained in this condition. I was taking doctor's medicine,
but as it did not seem to help me, my
mother advised me to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, and I got a couple
of boxes to start on. When these
were done* I seemed to feel an improvement and I got a.further supply to continue the treatment. I tooki-
in all about a dozen boxes, arid by'
thar timc I was in the best of health
and had gained in weight. My faith
in Dr. Williams' Pink'Pills is now unbounded, and I keep a supply on hand
and take them occasionally if I ara
production, and every dollar so expended would add hundreds to the wealth
of the world, as contrasted v/ith-every dollar expended in war ureparaiions  not feeling  quite  well.  I  often  re

Revising Trade Agreement
Government May Ask
Treaty With Canada
_ D._Caeiamanos,J.he_Greclumihisicr.
at London, called on Hon. P. C. Larkin, Canadian high commissioner in
London, recently and conferred with
Mr. Larkin nearly an hour with regard to a trade treaty between Greece
nnd Canada.    .
The Greek Government has recently
been revising its trade agreements,
and tliere has' been some discussion
of a possible-trade re-arrangement as
between Great Britain and Greece.
From thesei discussions it is possible
that a convention between 'Canada
and Greece will arise.
At the present time Canada has no

Extensions Recently Made Connect Western Europe With
The most far reaching developments
in thc history of wireless telephony
were put into operation when the
service to England from Canada
and the United States was extended
to Brussels ancl Antwerp as a preliminary to further extensions linking
the whole of western Europe with
the whole of North America.
Simultaneously it was announced
that successful tests in television between London and New York have
brought this latest scientific marvel
appreciably nearer the stage where it
can be operated commercially making
it possible for London to see events
happening in New York or vice versa.
The expansion in trans-Atlantic
telephoning, however, is more important at the present time because.of
the trade possibilities it fosters. In
this connection it is pointed out that
it is now possible to conclude deals
verbally, between merchants, say in
Daulzig, Vienna or Budapest on one
side, and merchants in Vancouver,
San Francisco, or Havana on the
This remarkable achievement has
led to the appointment of an international advisory board to standardize'
equipment,- co-ordinate development
and overcome the difficulties in international wireless telephony communication. .      '
It is predicted tliat in future this
form of intercourse between countries
will supplant the present telegraphic
methods now in use throughout Europe. London will thus become Uie
European centre of telephony--a sort
of clearing house-for communication
with North America. .

trcd on thc more spectacular events
of aviation, with its thrilling hazards,
casualties and triumphs, we havc
overlooked the less eventful but more
important aspect of commercial aviation. This phase of air travel has been
steadily progressing. The year has
given us day ancl night transcontinental mail service and thc air express.. Tlie regularity, smoothness
ancl freedom from accident attending
these services constitute a record in
many respects more remarkable than
the most sensational transcontinental
and transoceanic flights. But thcy
are taken, largely, for granted, because they lack thc dramatic appeal
of stunt flying. Statistics now available show that 400,000 passengers
wcrc carried between January 1 and
July 1, 1927, at an average rate of 13
cents per mile. In about five years, it
is estimated, this' rate will bc reduced
HO per cent. Air mail contractors, during the same period, carried 320,212
'pounds of mail over a distance of
1,399,720 miles with a ratio of mishaps so small as to be negligible. Dry
figures, perhaps. All figures are dry.
But tliey indicate that the time is near
at hand when air. travel will be the
safest form of   transportation,   and,
everything   considered,   one   of   tlie
most economical. .  ,

T. A. Lawrence, Ottawa, Jn charge of
the R.C.A.F. detachment assigned to
survey the Huds'on Straits, was tho
principal in a thrilling adventure in
the frozen North.
Rumors reached the capital tliat the
leader of the Government's survey and
patrol fliers had been lost. Later officials of thc Department of Marine and
Fisheries, who are in touch with the
Hudson Straits posts by radio, reported Major Lawrence safe.'
Thc squadron-leader's report reached headquarters by radio from his
winter headquarters at Wakeham
Bay, Ungava.
After being forced' down January
10, the aviator reported, he was
weatherbound until January 16, when
a companion flier,*'Carr Harris, sent
to search for him, arrived. High winds
which accompanied the extreme cold
made heating of the -"plane's motor
impossible, and subsequently ��� Squadron-Leader Lawrence was stranded
back of the Hudson Bay sub-post at
Little Sugluk. .'
With tlie coming of milder weather
January 17, the airmen dug their machine out of the snow and took off,
finally reaching Wakeham Bay despite

Britain   Will   Again   Buy   Canadian
Bacon Is Report
The market in Britain for Canadian
bacon is coming back and should bc
fairly well established by next March.
This was thc information given by
LiverpooF produce "importers tcT'the
party of Canadian farmers visiting
Britain, at a conference here.
H.-S. Arkell, Dominion Livestock
Commissioner, asked the importers
what the prospects were of a.let-up
'in tlie bacon supply from the Baltic
and whether Britain would pay higher
for Canadian bacon than for the, Baltic product.
' 'The answer was that next March,
the Baltic imports would decrease and.
Germany would be thc big purchaser
of pork from the Baltic. Britain, it
was asserted, could easily afford a
better price for bacon. Canadian pack-
crb"*? the importers conceded, did a better job Uian any' others. Canadians
were advised to remain in the bacon
market until thc British market came
back, which would bc very shortly.
The importers also said that Canadian'
cheese was superior to New Zealand's
product-and that Canadian butter and
eggs were popular with the British
buyer, but the lack of a continual supply of a high quality was a hindrance
to the trade.

Television between London ancl New

as a result of secret experiments, said
L. G. Hutchinson, managing director

he said, had been carried out in the
strictest secrecy. For six weeks thc
Eaird Company had been making research work from London offices and
recently established contact with New
York on several occasions. He stated
that it has been possible to see the
faces and hands of human beings, ancl
although the features were indistinct,
that was a detail which would doubtless be overcome at no distant future.
Mr. Hutchinson stated that he was
going to the United-States lo conduct
oflicial experiments in trans-Atlantic
vision and explore the prospects or
developing results on a commercial
"We are at the beginning of the
era," he went on, "when the electrical
eye will enable people to see distant
friends in any part-5 of Uie world. Even
now it is possible to see a man's
tongue from a great distance, but at
the moment it is impossible to determine the color. Color, possibly will
enter the field in the future, and one
could visualize a physician ordering a
tonic for a .patient perhaps hundreds
of miles away. Now that .the* question of trans-Atlantic television is entering the field there should be in future immense possibilities."

large battle cruisers were under construction at the time tho. Washington, Treaty was negotiated ancl were

Would Be Detectives Ilave^To
Absorb Fund Of Knowledge
The course of instruction wliich
every budding detective must attend
before joining the Criminal Investigation Department of" Scotland Yard,
lasts two months, and .at the end of
that time hc must pass stiff examinations in all.the manifold subjects he
has been taught.
First of all he must master the
elements of criminal law and the law
of evidence, and have a knowledge of
photography, and be able to draw
plans. Then he, is taught fingerprints
and footprints, and how to record personal descriptions of men and women.
With the aid of lantern slides lectures
are given on the different shapes of
heads ancl noses, thc color of eyes and
hair, special marks ancl peculiarities,
gait, boots and clothes. -Thousands
of pounds worth of jewelry are produced from the strong rooms so that
the students may learn the color and
setting of precious stones and be able
to-tell the difference between a bracelet and a bangle.
A "wanted" man is described and
put among thirty or forty others who
are walking in a yard. One by one the
students are told to pick him out from
the descriptions given to them, arid if
they do not make an "arrest"- within
two minutes they are considered to be
too 'slow.
A visit to the famous Black Museum is made,1 and there the wonderful collection of tools used by burglars, the crucibles and moulds of
base coiners,'the printing* machines of
note forgers, the revolvers and'poisons of murderers,.the forged checks of
clever penmen, the oxy-acetlyne apparatus of safe-breakers and a hun-
dred-and-ono other examples of t\\k
implements of resourceful criminals
"are all carefully described and their
uses explained.
'Methods of operation in the" commission of various classes of crime-
hundreds of them���form the subjects
of three or four lectures, and then the
class is taught how to start investigation of crimes���what to do and what
to avoid, ancl liow tb marshal thc evidence and to prepare cases.
Finally comes the supreme tp3t for
the real detective.'A murder is staged
in a room. Sach student-in turn takes
th'e part of a chief inspector in charge
of the investigation, i-le enters , tlie
room and takes a mental���not a written���note of everything he sees.
Having fixed. cvervUiing he can in
his mind's eye, the detective emerges
from the scene three minutes later,
when he is expected to be able to reconstruct the crime, to give an accurate description of the room, and to
establish from clues he has lound Uie
probable identity of the murderer and
the motive for the crime.
Royal Bank Annual Meeting
The annual General Meeting of
shareholders of The Royal Bank of
Canada marked.the close of the.most
successful year in the history of the
Sir Herbert Holt, President, in his
address, dealt more particularly with
general conditions throughout the
country, but touched.on many developments of great importance, more
especially from the standpoint of
*radc and industry.
C. B. Neill, General Manager, reviewed the growth of the Bank to the
'ore-most position it now occupies
and gave to the shareholders an Interesting insight into tho part thc
bank is playing in all centres in
'.vhich it is now doing business.
Outlook Favorable.
. Sir Herbert referred to the year's
.levclopments in industry, trade and
finance as generally satisfactory.
The foundation for the development
..vhich has taken place is sound. Sir
Herbert declared that" as yet thero
are no indications of industrial and
commercial inflation. Production is
not expanding lo a point unwarranted by growth and demand and it is
a noteworthy fact that the whole expansion has taken place during a
p-eriod characterized by moderately
declining prices. On Uie whole the
financial situation in agriculture, industry and commerce is more settled
Ihan at lhc beginning of the period.
Summing up the business situation,
'*''��� Herbert stated that the "outlook
was never more'favorable "for prolonged prosperity in Canada."-
Necessity .For Curbing Uinvise
In commenting on the annual
statement, Mr. . Neill referred at
length to the ' importance of call
loans, which represent loans against
stock exchange collateral, not only
of the Royal Bank, but of all banks.
He pointed out that this was indicative of three things:
' "1. Increase in thc number of securities available to investors.
"2. Increase in the market value
of securities.
"3. Increase in speculation.
"In a growing country the development of its resources produces
new securities. Prosperous times result in the enhancement in value of
securities and for these reason* it is
clear that the' two first mentioned
causes for the increase in Call Loans
are at least to some extent justiflcd..
As to the third, it is obvious that'
speculation has .reached a dangerous,
stage. The best-informed financial
and brokerage firms are already operating on au unusually conservative
basis by calling for increased margins, by declining to open new ac- '
counts and by restricting the liability
of their customers to reasonable
amounts. In times of excessive
speculation, the lure of easy profits
cannot be denied, but speculation can
be checked and he'd within reasonable bounds by the financial' interests, particularly the banks, and bond
and brokerago houses."..

New   Sources   Of   Wealth   For
Canada Have Been Tapped
The mineral production of Ontario
is approaching one hundred million
dollars a year. Last year's total was
$91,000,000. When thc present century
opened, the production was small, and
children in Ontario schools were being
taught that Ontario was not a mineral-bearing province to any extent.
Now the prospect is that in addition
to other great mineral wealth. Ontario will soon be the greatest gold-
producing district in the world.
When Uie present century opened,
loo, little thought was being given
to"water power; little expectation existed that within a generation a tremendous, gain would be made in industry, in commerce, in household
economy and advantage by development of water power.
When thc present century opened,
motoring was but beginning, good
roads were non-existent, the prophecy
that motor tourist3 would .bring a
great wealth into the province would
have been ridiculed.
So, within a generation, these new
sources of wealth have been tapped
for Ontario���and similar gains
throughout all Canada���and within a
generation the production of the western grain fields has quadrupled.
Yet our people have not increased
very greatly in numbers. If taxation

and municipal is heavy, there is a

with���her���experiment- in- comp"ulsory
automobile insurance. It is rather surprising that so radical an experiment
should have been made in so conservative a slate and perhaps still more
so that the driving public seems to be
satisfied with it.
It was argued against ths plan Uiat
it would increase reckless driving,
since losses were covered by the obligatory insurance policy. But the insurance companies -met Ui is objection
by refusing policies to reckless drivers.
It is estimated that thc number of
drivers has been reduced by 5 per
cent, under the operation of this Jaw
and it may be assumed that those
who have becn eliminated aro a good

It is logical Uiat fatalities should

than that the reckless were largely

asthma a great advantage. The trouble, once, it has secured a foothold
fastens its grip on the bronchial passage tenaciously: Dr. J. D. Kellogg's
Asthma Remedy is daily benefiting
cases o�� asthma of long standing.
Years of suffering, however, might
have been prevented had the remedy
been used when the trouble was in its
first stages. Do not neglect asthma,
but use this preparation at once.

Sick stomachs, sour stomachs and
indigestion usually mean excess acid.
The stomach nerves arc over-stimulated. Too much acid makes the stomach and intestines sour.
Alkali kills acid instantly. The best
form is Phillips' Milk of Magnesia, because one harmless, tasteless dose
neutralizes many times its volume in
acid. Since its invention, 50 years ago,
it has remained the standard with

Ottawa, Ont.���Confirming previous
reports that the lands of the Peace
River block and the railway belt in
British Columbia would be returned
to that Province, Premier Mackenzie
King made all but the formal announcement of the government's intention
in the House of Commons on Tuesday.
He -reported that Mr. Justice Martin,
who had presided over the commission
investigating British Columbia's claims,
had sent a letter declaring that there
were claims in equity for the return of
these lands.
"While the commissioner does not
say there is a legal claim,", the Premier
said,"he is of the opinion that there is
a strqng claim, in equity and justice in
the past of the province to the return
of these lands."
The commissioner's report, the Premier continued, would soon be tabled,
and the government, in its legislation,
would be guided by the commission's
recommendations. All that remains in
the mater now, it is held here, is for
the formal presentation of a measure
returning' to British Columbia the
13,500,000 acres in the Peace River block
and the railway belt/
Consolidated Had Record
Number of Shippers in 1927
(By E. A. Haggen)
Final figures of the production of
Consolidated Mining & Smelting Co.
for the past year show the company's
revenue to have fallen $8,000,000 below 1926. There was a drop of $20,000
ounces in gold, and of nearly 3,000,000
pounds of copper. Silver production
was about the same for both years, but
there was an increase of 30,000,000
pounds in lead and of 12,000,000 pounds
in zinc.
> The drop in value is due to the lower
ruling for the lead and zinc. Had the
samo prices prevailed in 1927 as in 1926,
the company's production would have
reached the astounding figure of
$44,15G,078. As it is, thc company
accounts for 50 per cent of the total
mineral production of the province,
including coal, structural, and miscellaneous minerals; and for nearly three
fourths of the entire metal mineral.
If the production of Granby, Britannia
and Premier are taken into consideration, we have the astounding fact that
these four companies account for
almost the entire metal output, leaving
only $3,5000,000 for the whole of the
other operating mines.
The copper turned out at Trail
smelter comes almost entirely from the
Granby Company's Allenby plant, but
with its own activities in Coast Copper,
Sunloch and some of the copper prospects recently bonded and under development on the Coast the company
should again become an important
producer of copper, just as it was when
operating its Rossland and Boundary
The past year saw the greatest increase in the number of producers
experienced in the history of'the industry, the custom shippers to Trail
smelter numbering 118,'and accounting for 539,082 tons. Of these shippers the production of all except seventeen was under 1,000 tons.
The Boundary-Similkameen districts
again assuming importance as snippers
of custom ore. The Copper Mountain
mine is the largest producer, but the
Beaverdell camp, with its high-grade
ore, is, and is likely to continue, one
of the richest silver sections of the province.
There are now twenty shippers in
this section of the province, and of
these eight are located at Beaverdell.
The Big Horn Silver is missing from
the list,- but will again be in production
this year, as the development which
has been carried on for some months
is stated to have proved up an appreciable tonnage of payable ore. The
production of the Copper Mountain
mine,_is also likely to be increased this
year, the mill having a capacity of
nearly 3000 tons a clay, twice as much
as last year's output.
. Advices received, during the past
month. state that the Canadian Fox
Ranchers have experienced a big demand for breeding stock this fall, and
as a result the price at which real
good .animals can now be obtained is
up. Some instances are given of where
as much as $1,000 has been paid for
good outstanding individual foxes. It
looks as if the day of cheap prices for
real quality animals is about over.
Much of this demand for foxes from
Canada has come from Europe, but
still a large number have been purchased by buyers from the United
States.���January issue of The Black

Fox Breeders Meet
A meeting of Fox" Breeders of the
Grand Forks - Greenwood district was
held in the office of the Packing House
at Grand Forks on Monday, Jan. 30th.
Grand Forks ranchers being well represented as well as Major.-R... Gray,
Lewis Keir and Jqe Tromblay from the
Greenwood district.
Matters of co-operative buying of
supplies, discussions of systems of
ranch sanitation, feeding and new
type's of pens, were generally discussed.
Mr. and Mrs. G. Frache favored.
Mr. G. Frache favored those present
with his experience of having shipped
silver fox pelts to a local B. C. fur
house and after receiving a small offer
same pelts to the Canadian National
Association, receiving the valuation of
$175 and $150 for the two silvers; also
$50 for one black skin, showing that it
was possible to raise good fur in this
district, but that it was important to
raise quality stock as the pelt valued
at $50 had cost the same to produce
as the $175 one.
Another meeting will be held as
soon as road conditions are suitable for
travel between Greenwood and Grand
Forks. At this meeting a, system of
