a  An Explanation
The editor has been handed the following statement for publication:
On October 18th a" young girl was
brought to the Hospital from' near
Wauconda with symptoms which were
at first thought to be Spinal Meningitis. She was accordingly strictly
quarantined and some days later
developed some numbness in one leg
suggestive of Infantile Paralysis. Dr.
Mayes the Health Oflicer of Ferry
County was notified and on seeing thc
girl, quarantined thc family and closed
thc school in that district, as a precautionary measure.
The girl has since improved daily
and will in a few days be able to return
This explanation has been given by
the Hospital Board and the Local
Medical Health Officer to quiet the
alarming and somewhat unnecessary
rumors which have been prevalent the
last few days.
Tho Board wish to assure all, that
due to the rigid isolation of this case,
no spread of the disease is possible.

Tlie Conservative National Convention
Tlie holding of a national convention by.any great, organization is.ahvays
ft manor.of interest and of importance to people generally because o'f lho
effect it may have on the country* as a whole..But when such a eouveuUoii
is* culled by a political party for the purpose, of formulating policies aud
. selecting a leader, tho gathering becomes one of iirst importance'. It. v.us
namrul, therefore, that tho recent Conservative Convention in Winnipeg
should command not only tho interest, of members and adherents of lhat
particular party, but.of the Canadian-people'as a whole.
Interest iu the convention was all the greater because it was unicjuo in
tho history of the party, being the first national' gathering,of Conservatives
to be convened si ice 'Confederation. Liberals and other political groups have
. convened in national convontiou but the Conservatives had not clone so prior
to this year of Canada's Diamond Jubilee.. It added olio more-. nationally
iiciportaiu observance of this memorable year iu Canada's history.
.As is well known to our readers, this column (loos not attempt to deal
with or discuss questions which are the subject of controversy between
political parties, and in this particular article there is no intention of dopari-'
from that rule. But as a national event, the recent convention presented
certain features and look certain actions which, instead of being controversial, .ire matters for general satisfaction. ...*.'
ln the first place, like all great national gatherings, ihe Conservative
convention -performed an unquestioned servico to Canada in bringing together
hundreds of the leading men and women of the nine provinces. The result ant,
exchange of views and opinions, the new knowledge gained of each other and
each other's problems, the round table conferences in committee, can not fa.il .1
to profoundly affect future policy throughout the Dominion.
To the West in particular tho unqualilJed endorsement of tha Hudson Bay
Railway project and approval of steps not only to complete i.he railway but
to 'oVy/olop n port and traflic in and out of that pott is most gratifying. -It
definitely removes-this, groat undertaking* from the realm of partizan politics
and places it where it belongs as one of lhe great national undertakings of the
dominion to the success of which all are committed. '���*
it is likewise gratifying to the West that the mantle of leadership should
havs" fallen'on the shoulders of a Western man, yet am ari who lias an intimate
knowledge of the East. Whether one agrees with the political views of 11. B.
Ilf-nnetl. or not, few, if any, will question his ability or his lave for and desire
to serve his native land, iiis long experience in public life,.as a member of
the old. North-West Territories Assembly, thc Alberta Legislature, and the
House of Commons, his training in law, his qualifications as a speaker, ana
tlio responsibilities-which'have been his as Minister of Justice and Minister
of Finance in former Govormnents at Ottawa, should fit him for his new task
of party leadership.-'-In the hands of Hon. Mackenzie King aiuf Hon. 11. n.
Bennett, all that, is best iu British Parliamentary traditions and procedure'
should be worthily upheld.
'Finally, the convention,' and the settlement of the question of leadership,
should havo the effect of giving greater stability to political-tliousht throughout the Dominion. It marks the end of a period df indecision and unrest in
the ranks of one of the political groups which is,a good thing for Canada as
well as for fhe party itself. Unity in purpose and decisiveness in action Is
what a young and rapidly, developing country like Canada'��� urgently requires
in order to' make progress. It is .vital to the interests of tlio Dominion that
noi. one or two bnt all political groups know their own minds,..definitely slate
their policies, and show, decision in their actions. Unless those who.-direct
and those who seek to direct, the destinies of Canada are themselves strong'
tliat contribution lo the welfare and progress of Canada which is essential.

Old Age Pensions For B.C.

.First of .ail, there is a cbmplelo
drag line dredge having a daily capacity of 1,000 cubic yards, the largest
piece ot which weighs .12,000 pounds.
This'is ouly a part of the juggernaut
which Otlorson is hauling through
lli,o wilderness by motor tractor while
an. axe crew goes ahead* preparing the
way. Then there is a complete blacksmith, sawmill and machinist outfit,
kitchen equipment, steam boiler and
engine and cleclric light plant, the
latter to give Mauso'n Creek some of
the brilliance which it enjoyed in the
days when it was the capital of the
golden empire of the far north couutry.
Last year the caravan travelled: SO
miles in four mouths. Then the thaw
came and the train was left where it
stood'. And now that the snow is falling again the trek will be resumed.

ease of digestion that .if can be given
alternately with breast milk.without
causing abrupt weaning.

First Check For
Old Age.Pensions
(Port Alberni News)
History was made," and the four
figures of the history were photographed for record, in the Provincial
Government office, Alberni, ori the'
afternoon of Sunday, October 16th.
The occasion was the presentation,
by A. W. Neill, M.P., to Williani Henry
Derby, of Pprt Albemi, of the first
check, and for the 'first claim, under
tho Old Age Pension Act now in force
in British Columbia.
The other parties to the ceremony
were R. J. Burde, M.L.A., and A. G.
Freeze, government agent for the
Alberni district.
The check, which was for the maximum monthly allowance of $20, and
covered the month of September; was
received by Mr. Neill on Saturday
In handing over the check Mr. Neill
"This might almost be called an
historical occasion, being the payment
of the first check ever issued in Canada
on account of an old age pension.
"I am proud of the share 1 had
in bringing into force this important
legislation^ one of the most necessary
pieces of social legislation-ever passed
in Canada.
"I am proud that our province of
British Columbia should be the first
to take advantage of the Old Age Pension Act, and pleased to think that the
first check should go to an old pioneer
of' our home town. ���'
"Mr Derby, I have much pleasure in
handing you this check made out to
you, William Henry Derby, by the Old
Age Pension Department, and signed
by Parker Williams, a man who has
done much good work as a commissioner of the Workmen's Compensation
Board, and the Mother's Pension Board
and now has control of the Old Age
Pension Department.
"You  will see it is marked "Claim
No.l-A" and it is���"Check No. 1"
If you care to endorse it I will be glad
to give you twenty dollars in cash for
it as I should like to keep it as a mo-
mento of this occasion.
"I hope you may be spared to receive
similiar checks for many years to
Mr. Derby, feelingly and briefly, expressed his thanks, endorsed the check
and returned it for the consideration of
twenty dollars in the form of Mr. NeilPs
personal check. Absently-mindedly.he
then handed the Neill' check to Mr.
Burde, but recovered both himself and
the check in very short order.
William Henry Derby, who is one of
the best known characters of the
Alberni district, and who is 75 years
of age, came to British Columbia in
October, 1876, 5K years ago, settling
first in Victoria. He arrived in Alberni
on the old West Coast steamer Maud
on July 23ra, 1896, and has been a resident 'there ever since.. He earned his
livelihood in Alberni mostly as a stage
driver and teamster in the employ of
J. J. Burke, ancl is familiarly known as
"Bill" to every politician who ever
sought election, or worked in support of
a candidate, in this district during the
p-ast 31 years, his political views always
varying with his chosen friendships,
Maintaining the Milk Flow
(Experimental Farm Note.)
One of the iirst requisites of a steady
milk flow is good cows. The cows
should be capable of heavy-production
in winter as well as in summer, if
given the proper attention. There
may be some excuse for keeping poor
cows in the summer where pasture is
not considered. of value "and any returns from the cows are profits, but
winter .feed costs money and a cow
must produse sufficient milk to more
than-pay for their feed or Jelse be
Some system of breeding the cows
should be followed so that all the cows
do not freshen'in the spring or summer. To keep up the milk supply from
the dairy cows, a good percentage of
them must freshori in the fall. Many
of the cows making the best records
at the present time freshen in the fall
or early winter. By so doing the bulk
of the milk is given at the time fit the
year when heat and flies do not tend
to retard production, and later when
the cows are turned to grass, production is given another impetus. .
Another  very  important  factor in
management, too much cannot be done
especially in the fall ahd .the winter
months. Tliey should be housed in
comfortable but not necessarily elaborate quarters. The barn should be
warm, well lighted and have plenty of
fresh   air.   Grooming   is   advisable.
Regularity in milking and feeding
goes a long way toward producing
the' desirable" quantity of milk when
the returns are the greatest.

British Columbia last year operated
276 travelling libraries, .containing

A Warning
With full recollection of the wanton
destruction to private property and the
disgraceful treatment of war trophies
last Hallow'een evening by a number
of boys and girls who are members of
perfectly respectable and good families
it is thought that a preliminary word
of advice might be acorded to parents
of the city and neighbouring district.
Through some mistaken idea con:
ceived years ago the celebration of
Hallow'een was centred on a deliberate
attempt to cause destructive confusion
and subsequent costs to law-abiding
citizens and when protest was made'
the excuse of liberties being allowed on
the evening of October 31st was always
considered legitimate. In this should-
be-enlightened age it is time this foolish and dangerous practice be eliminated and all parents be, prepared to
accept responsibility of the conduct of
their children at least that evening.
Failing to do so there', should be no
kick coming if parents are called
upon tQ pay for damage done or have
their children who are found guilty of
these misguided perpetrations of common law and order be brought before
a Magistrate or Justice of the Peace
who cannot legitimately accept the
excuse of Hallow'een.
The extreme younger generation enjoy the occasion by means of costumes,
jack-o-lanterns ahd other strange devices peculiarly inimicable to, this festival, why have this innocent pleasure
spoilt by others who desire to develop
into hooligans and take this evening off
to show their true tendency.
"Miracle" Wheat Again
(Experimental Farms Note)
There has appeared recently in a
number of leading agricultural papers
an article entitled "King Tut's Wheat
Grown in the West." The article refers to certain results obtained ,by a
Soldier Settler living near Edmonton,
Alta., and gives the impression that the
wheat in question was discovered in
1922 in the tomb qf King Tut-ankin-
men. As amatter of fact the records
show that this wheat was known as
far back back as 1840 when one enterprising gentleman offered heads at $5
The above variety belongs to the
Poulard subspecies of wheat being
somewhat intermediate between the
common ancl durum wheats. It has
numerous alises, thc most common bf
which are Egyptian, Eldorado, Many
headed, Miracle, Mummy, Seven headed and Alaska. It has always been
easy to interest people in this wheat
owing to its branched head, If an un-
branched head will yield so much surely a branched head will yield much
more! While head for head this may
be true, yet experiments have not
shown that it holds good acre for acre.
This wheat was probably introduced
into North America from Europe or
Egypt in Colonial days.0 It was received by the Philadelphia Society for
promoting Agriculture in 1807, since
which time it has appeared periodically under one name or another.
In 1908 the United States Department of Agriculture began extensive
investigation of this wheat, which investigation continued for several years.
In the meantime it has been tried by
the farmers all. over the"United States
but it is not now grown anywhere as a
commercial crop. The fact that it has
never become established in spite of
the remarkable advertising, it has received is a good indication of its inferiority. Promoters however resurrect
id periodically and, owing to its striking and unusual appearance,, manage
to sell it to the unsuspecting farmer at
exorbitant prices.
The essential facts concerning Alaska wheat have been summed up very
nicely in a bulletin published by the
United States .Department of Agriculture���Bulletin No. 357, 1916, P. 27���
at the conclusion of extensive tests
conducted at many points in the U.S.,
as follows:���
(1) That it has been used in this
country very often as a means of
deceiving people and very seldom as
a farm crop; ��� . '
JZ) , that it has failed to produce
even fair yields when tried in many
parts of the country, and has never
been known to produce extraordinary
(3) that it is not a good milling
(4) that the branched head is not
a sign of superior yielding power.
To meet the increased activity in
aviation the Royal Canadian Air
Force will be equipped with 26 new
planes, acoording to information
givon out at Ottawa recently.

23rd and' 24th and in Nanaimo on
November 25th, is anticipated by mining men throughout the Province with
great interest. -'���
The meetings in the past have. in--
variably attracted large attendances
and have -been memorably enjoyable.
." The _ present���one will^undoubterily-
prove no exception, to the rule. In
brief, the programme as arranged will
include reviews of the' principal min.-
ing developments of the year by the
-Provincial Mineralogist, Mr. j. d.
Galloway, by . the British Columbia
representative of the Geological Survey, Dr. V. Dolmage, and by the;
Resident Engineers. This will occupy
the first morning session. The remaining three sessions in Vancouver
will be occupied by discussions bri three
major topics, namely: "Recent improvements and innovations in Flotation Practice," "Electrical Prospecting"
and Placer Mining conditions. The
first mentioned topic will be introduced
in papers by Mr. W. B. Timm of the
Dominion Department of Mines, Mr.
Dale L. Pitt of the Premier, Mr.
Oughtred of the Sullivan, and Mr. H.
A. Pearce of the Britannia. There will
be a banquet on Thursday evening,
November 24th, following which Col!
W. W. Foster will deliver a popular
lecture on "The Retreat from Mens."
On the morning of the third day of
the Meeting, steamer will be taken to
Nanaimo where there will be an afternoon session devoted mainly to a general discussion on the "Beneflciation
of Coal" to be introduced in a paper by
Professor Robert H. Clark of the
University of B.C., entitled "The Production of Liquid Fuels'from-Coal."
The business session' will be followed
by a dinner and festivities in the evening. The meetings of the Institute are
open to the public and a cordial invitation to attend is extended to all interested in the progress and welfare of
our mining industry.
Increasing The Value of
..). Canada's Fur Resources
There are thousands of trappers in
Canada and all of them are engaged at
one time or another during the winter
season in taking the pelts of wild-
fur-bearers. There is hardly a farm,
village or a town in Canada that has
not got. its trapper or fur trader.
Million qf dollars are distributed each
year among'these persons as a result
of the disposal of Canada's annual raw
fur catch. Last year it had a value of
$15,072,244." A very considerable increase in the yearly_^yalue _would-.be-
made  possible   were  proper  methods
of pelts handling'more widely known.
Too many trappers, think that once
they have taken a skin nothing else remains to be done. Amateur and farmer trappers which form more than
half of the trapping fraternity are the
chief losers through this lack of
knowledge in the 'handling of raw
pelts, as poorly prepared pelts bring
much, lower prices than those which
haverbeen properly prepared. Leading
fur authorities have stressed the fact
that in many cases up to one half of
the pelts coming to the raw .fur
markets fall into the unprofitable class
and that every year there is tremendous
loss in pelt values that could be prevented. The loss, however, is not confined to the careless trappers, but
affects the whole fur industry and lowers the value of both the raw and
finished product.
With a view io improving this condition and making possible a wider
knowledge of the essentials necessary
to the proper skinning, stretching and
drying of raw pelts, a monograph entitled "The Preparation of Pelts for
the Market" has been prepared by the
department of' the Interioor. ��This
monograph will be sent free of charge
on request to the Director, Natural
Resources Intelligence Service, Department of the' Interior, Ottawa,
Some idea of the increase in tho
volume of traffic through the port

that during th�� past year exports
from that port were valued at
