HiB visit to Ottawa was''.'  made in connection with the forwarding of puhlic  works and improvements in Vancouver.  Much is  now under way, as the following, will show:  "Tenders will not he called for..-the turning  basin in False Creek, because the Pacific Dredging Company are doing the rest of the dredging  in the creek and have the necessary equipment  there. The turning basin will be close to  the new seawall and its purpose ia to allow ships  going up the treek room to turn around in deep  water. About 725,000 cubic yards of material  .will have to be removed for the purpose.  "Plana for the new drill ball in the East End  have been approved with a few minor changes.  There was some delay in calling fer tenders for  the North Vancouver drill haU. This was caused  by a miaup in regard to jwrisd^UMi. The first  plans were cancelled, but the revWedI plane are  complete and accepted and tenders will be called  for immediately. ���������  "Col Hughes, the Minister of HWttn, hJf approved the ground plans for the proposed improvement ta fee. head of Coal Harbor as submitted hy the Perk Board and paeaed by Major  Carey.  "The detailed plans, which are mott voluminous, of the Amalgamated Engineering Comnany  for the construction of a drydock and ahipyards  on the North Shore, have been checked oyer by  the Minister of Public Works and hia chief engineer. -Certain changes are being made in the  plans-at the request of the Minister.  uThe whole project will cost over $6,QOD,000  and work will be started before spring. Strong  financial interests are behind the enterprise.  "Tenders for the new detention shed will be all  in this week and tfcat work also will he started  shortly."  Piscussing the Hindu immigration problem  with The Province, Mr. H. H* Stevens,  M.P*, said he strongly favored the imposition of  an educational test on all applicants from India  seeking adiwation to this country, as a means of  solving the complicated difficulty, which now  confronted the immigration authorities consequent on the recent ruling of Chief Justice  Hunter.  He believed tbat all the present trouble could  be obviated in future hy the. exercise of the clause  in the Immigration Act which oppowers the refusal of any applicant - for admission on the  ground of unsuitability from a climatic, social or  industrial point of view.-  Turning to the hygienic aspect of the case, Mr.  Stevens referred to the fact that recent investigations instituted by the United States health  bureau had disclosed that the majority of Asiatics  ������������������Chinese, Japanese and Hindus���������were either  affected or susceptible to a certain chronic disease, which while resembling tuberculosis, differed in many respects from that dread scourge.  "A peculiar feature of the insidious disease,"  he continued, "is that nearly every Oriental even  if not actually affected has a tendency to act as  a 'carrier' and thus the danger of transmission is  greatly accentuated. The deductions made by the  U. S. health scientists show that the introduction  of men afflicted with a chronic ailment of this  nature .tends to deteriorate the white races with  whom they associate in the same way as the  negroes in the southern states who brought the  hook worm into that country lowered the standard of vitality among the occidentals there., In/  view of this menance, from an hygienic standpoint, I urge the Dominion to augment the present health regulations and make them much more  rigorous. I feel confident that this will aid materially in the solution of the Oriental immigra-  * tion problem.  "I have no doubt that the Dominion authorities  are now aroused to a keen sense of the importance of the'recent change made by the adverse  ruling of Chief Justice Hunter regarding the  powers of immigration officials under the orders  in council passed at Ottawa, and will take up and  grapple with the issue without delay and arrive  at a satisfactory solution of the whole involved  problem..  Inspection of Canned Fish  Dominion Regulations To Protect Consunkers-r-Fish To Be Inspected At Canneries  The Marine and Fisheries Department at Ottawa is determined that the consumers shall be protected, and the following regulations are to be enforced in all  canneries and fish packing establishments:  "Sections 12 and 13 of this Act read as follows:  ������ .������<-  ��������� 12. All articles prepared for food in any: establishment and packed in cans.  or similar receptacles, or in any package whatever, shall be subject to inspection during the whole course of preparation and packing; and aU such packages shall he  marked with,��������� *_ .  (a) the initials of the Christian names, the full surname, and the address,  or, in therejtse Of a firm or corporation, the firm pr corporate name and  address, of the packer or of the first dealer obtaining them direct from  the packer, who sells or off ers the said articles for sale; and such dealer  shall, upon the request of an inspector appointed under this Act, disclose  the name of the pa-eker of sucfc article;  .    (b) a true and correct description of the contents of the package:  Provided, however, tbat if it be established to tbe satisfaction of tbe Governor  in Council tbat sucb working would injur* tfee sale of any of said articles in foreign  markets or in tba market* of thl Uiq^^Tipjsnyhe may wrapt sudi articles  from the provisions of tbis section. ( (   v,ru  IZ. All fish, fruit, or vegetables used in any est^Usbment wfcere these articles  are prepared for export, shall be sound, wholesome, ahd fit for food; ant* any sucb  articles or products thereof found in tbe said establishment unsound or unwholesome sball be confiscated and destroyed *s provided by tbe regulations."  Second Narrows Prldge  The bridge Company is still waiting for something to turn up before attacking this important project. Why wait? The Company bas subscribed $1,500,000  by the Municipalities, the provincial Government a tbe Dominion Government.  They have a borrowing power of $750,000, being quite enough to make up the full  cost ofthe bridge,  It is contended that these bonds are not saleable. This is not so, because tbey  form a first charge against the bridge and tbe interest on these bonds will be a first  charge. The revenue will be quite sufficient to meet this charge from the opening  of the bridge. ' <  Again, it is contended by the ultra-cautious element that the financial market  is bad at present. That is true, but is it necessary to market the bonds now? It  will be some time before there will be any demand for funds and the municipalities can .issue sufficient to keep work going for a year with but slight loss. Why not  proceed? Why not call for tenders and let the*contract. The means of financing  are clear and sure. No large amount will be required for over a year and by then  the market will improve. Some have suggested that only a railway bridge is needed. What! No vehicular traffic, no pedestrian traffic, no tram car traffic���������are We  going to stand for that after all these years of fair promises?  If any alterations are allowed in the plans, it will mean that the whole project  will have to be re-submitted to the Dominion Government and new approval secured, which is an endless procedure. \'.;... -    '  We want action NOW.  Strong anti-Oriental resolutions, were adopted by the Grandview Ratepayers'  Association at their meeting last night   (Too late to insert, see Dailies).  "With reference to the freight rates better results could be obtained if the representatives of  the provinces and business interests of the country who are pressing their cause for a reduction  were to confine their arguments to specific commodities. The rates on flour, wheat, lumber, coal,  cement, shingles, heavy hardware and other similar merchantable goods and products should he  probed in order to arrive at some satisfactory  remedy."  The fact that there is a general disposition to  "knock" Vancouver in Eastern Canada was alluded to with much indignation by Mr. Stevens.  He said he attributed the captions criticism to  "communal jealousy," and expressed the emphatic opinion that from observations made while  he was in the East, conditions in this part of the  country compare favorably with those obtaining  in the other sections.

WOOP ro* AI* BfPWWJw  Ontario Orowi AU Unt IHfht of tht TWrty-fowr  Practically all industries are more or less "dependent on wood. In Ontario alone, exclusive of  the manufacturers of rough lumber, over thirty-  eight industries, represented by 1,200 different  firms, supplied the statistics recently compiled  and published by the Forestry Branch, Ottawa, in  a bulletin entitled, ''The Wood-Using Industries  of Ontario." These firms in 1912 purchased W7,-  456,000 feet, board measure, of rough lumber*  valued at $19,161,384, which, when manufactured  into several hundred finished products, ringing  from handles to hearses, represent a turning over  of several times this amount of capital.  British Columbia has a distinct advantage in  this regard and this should be drawn to the attention of manufacturers throughout Canada.  The many friends and admirers of Alderman  Frank Trimble will be delighted to hear that he  will be a candidate again for Aldermanic honors  in Ward VIII. He has proven himself capable  and trustworthy during his three years of service.  Success to him!

Friday, December 5.1913  TM WHKEPEN CALL  *r.  MANAGEMENT OF TURKEYS  By X* R* Terry, Chief Poultry Inspector.  among turkeys in practically all  parts of the world, and, owing to its  insidiousness, is almost impossible to  contend with successfully.  , Although generally somewhat more  ���������difficult to rear than common poultry, turkey raising, under favorable  circumsstances, has proved to be a  very remunerative occupation, especially in those parts of the Province  where considerable insect life a-  bounds, climatic conditions are suitable, and plenty of acreage is available.  BREEDS  Of the several .breeds���������Bronze,  White, Buff, Narragansett, etc���������the  first two are most popular and profitable varieties. They are also the  largest. The standard Weights of  Bronze are: For torn, 331b.;* hen,  201b.; young torn, 25lb.; pullet, 161b.  Individual turkeys, have been produced weighing over 451b. This,  however, is an abnormal weight, and  such specimens -i are generally too  large for breeding purposes.  LOCATION   AND   EQUIPMENT  Although  turkeys  have  been  and  atfd are, being profitably reared in  ano-ic climates, yet localities ' where  the rainfall is slight, such as the  Okanagan Valley, Similkameen, East  and West Kootenay, northern British Columbia,, along the Skeena river,  Nechako, ^ulkley Valley, and the  Boundary, are more favorable sites  for successful turkey raising. In the  above mentioned districts large quantities of grasshoppers, etc., are present, and natrally provide a great deal  ofthe turkey's sustenance. V  Very little equipment is needed by  those engaging in this branch of poultry work For mature stock, 'a  cheaply constructed, open fronted  -shed Js all'that is required. When  turkeys roost in trees or on buildings,  in locations where no vermin, such  as coons, lynx, or large owls,.are.  present, it is a good plan tc e&cour-  ago this course, except in exceptionally severe -weather. - A wire corral  placed around outdoor roosting quarters is excellent protection from coyotes.  AyA^ ���������;B:?^|lMMS?"; ,;^',; %  ���������  "Biacteh^^  era, enteritis, and roup are among tha  worst enemies the turkey breeder  has to contend with. He cannot be  too careful in selecting and purchasing breeding stock. If possible, all  stock should be bought oh approval,  a month being none too long. The  first  mentioned - disease   is   found  Turkeys of all ages are liable to  infection, and, as before mentioned,  the quarters of common fowls, or  soil which'has ben overrun by them  for any length of time, make very  prolific breeding quarters for this, disease. Many so-called cures for black  head have been exploited, but, so  far, have been successful only in part  The disease generally is too far advanced to give the breeder a fighting  chance to save the victim. It is.extremely doubtful whether any stock  once infected with this disease should  be kept. The bowels and'liver are  the parts most generally affected. In  all cases this accompanied by a discharge of yellowish green diarrhoea,  and' a marked thirst is noticeable.  All sick fowls should be immediately  killed and burned, the quarters  cleaned and disinfected, the v droppings burned, and yards limed and  turned over.  The same procedure should take  place should tuberculosis, enteritis,  or cholera appear amongst the flock.  In all of these contagious diseases  the yellowish or greenish, diarrhoea  and thirst are. present. Roup more  often attacks birds that are neglected,  allowed to roam amongst their o-#n  or- common, fowl manure, and/ those  that" are kept in draughty and 'damp,  dark quarters. Birds suffering with  tbis disease have the same symptoms  shown by human beings when suffering from severe colds. Fever is present, the nostrils exude a slimy pus,  and oftentimes' the eyes are closed  by a cheesy growth or canker, or,  strictly speaking,' diphtheritic roup.  The birds generally appear listless  and huddle in corners. Infested birds  should be instantly quarantined in  dry, light quarters, and immediately  doctored. A dose of Epsom salts  should be first administered, about a  teaspoonful being* the right quantity  per biro. .Quinine 'capiu-dW jo^  size given every two or; .tlire* ������lays  -are veiy helpful- The *w>strils should  be pressed, and all matter removed  with a rag. which: should be burned.  A solution of permanganate of potash, some patent disinfectant, or Setter's antisceptic tablets should then  be injected up each nostril. All sick  birds should be. fe;d jon; abfjfc' .jsret'.  mash only. The drinking water of all  the birds should be dwinfected with  permanganate* of potash regularly at"  a first-class preventitive.  MATING AND BREEDING.  Quite a number of successful breeders mate young toms to fully matured young females, but it is much  safer for beginners to mate young  toms or toms to two-year-old females.  The number of females to mate depends on the male bird. From five  to ten females is the general rule.  Where/ however, it is not the intention of the owner to keep males, the  females may be placed with neighbor's  male for a few days during the breeding season. This practice should not  be encouraged, however, on account  of infection by the scourge "blackhead."  Yearling hens will lay more eggs  than older,hens, but the latter eggs  hatch stronger. and' more vigorous  poults. Hens, generally, are profitable up to four years of age. Toms  of this age, generally, are cross audi  dangerous to children; Hens from  18 to 20 lb. lay more fertile eggs and  make better mothers than larger hens.  See that, breeding stock are not too  fat    / '"���������  Breeding-pens should be allowed  as much range as possible 'and free  access "to pasturage, or, where this  is not available, green food should  be provided1 -regularly. Medium-  sized flocks," hot exceeding fifty birds,  seem to be most profitable.      -  The females should be watched  whea out/on range, so as to discover  their nests. Unless it is desired that  the turkey-hen be allowed to hatch  her eggs, it is advisable to remove  all eggs from the nest regularly, care  being taken, however, to leave a nest-  egg. When there-is danger from  vermin eating the eggs, the hens  should be encouraged to nest near  their shelter,' or in some protected  spot near by. VVhen eggs are given  to a common broody hen to hatch-  si plan which has its advantages, in-  sfsihuch:, as the turkey, hen will generally lay a second clutch of eggs���������*  not more than from six to eight eggs  should be given; the number, of  course, depending oh the size of the  hen. Turkey-hens will cover as many  as'-.aevcnte^  should be taken to see that ;the setter,  whether turkey or common-hen, be  properly dn_ ted with insect powder  to kill off all insects before hatching  ������f^eigg-ik/ 7' 7^rkey-f CT������7-7'*������ke'.from  twWty-eight to. thirty days to hatch,  and may be successfully 'hatched in  an^ inaibator.

Applicants  must be between the ages of 18 and 45, over  5 feet 5 inches in height and physically  sound.  i. w, DOWDING  Captain and Adjutant  ao -UMo be at least level with top of  eggs, and the temperature not to exceed 103 degrees. Applications of  moisture by means, of a damp cloth  dipped in warm water and then spread  over the eggs for a few minute* after  being wrung fairly dry will prove  helpful.  When hatched, the youdg turkeys  should be, together with the hen,  placed out on clean, sweet short sod,  and confined to a small run in front  of the coop for a few days. Do not  feed till poults are twenty-four hours  old. All food given should be placed  on flat boards, which should be  cleaned regularly. The first fed may  consist of a mash mixed crumbly,  consisting of hard-boiled egg, shell  included, bread-crumbs, onion-tops,  dandelion-leaves or lawn-clippings���������  the whole being ground fine in a meat  mincer. This may be fed twice daily,  alternating with a feed of bread  squeezed dry after being soaked in  milk, or a mash of shorts and oatmeal mixed crumbly ;with sweet,  skim, or butter milk. - Cracked wheat  corn, and pinchead (granulated) bat-  meal may be given as aehange feed  after a few days, One advantage of  a common hen -as a mother is that  she is less liable to tire the turkey-  chicks than the parent hen. The  latter, especially on ran^e where the  vegetation is high, will sometimes  range so far that the weakest of the  chicks will "become exhausted and  die. '       ������������������ ;'-'"' ���������������������������������������������     l;XX:~-.AA  - The* hen .may be allowed to roam  with the young after they are about  a week or ten days old, depending,  of course, upon the weather* Aft*,  this, where free range is provided,  three meals a day arc .sufficient, till  the birds are about two months' old.  After that, twice or even once' a day  may prove sufficient The feed at  this tipie may consist of one of hard  grain at night-���������and, if needed, a mash  in the morning of shorts and skim-  milk.. The mash should always be  fed on a board for fear**of contamination. Xyy'' yA'-'~':x'-'i'.''''.''���������  The young stock should be encouraged to roam as much as possible  and never allowed .near the quarters  of: common-^fo^  breeding-pUce should always be as  far away from the hen-yards as, possible. v-TJFailure i.to. .obi|^������i;7tlriiii7 vejy,  frecently etuis to disMter,^  commcA fowl prove::excellent hosts  for thfe most fatal of all turkey-diseases���������-"black-head.'' ���������"' 7;  ; It is dan^rous to let them out during wet weather, when only a few  days old.;.,7A\|Jiifj������^  necessary, so that they may not suffer  during detention^:'AXx;jX,.K"^;.������������������;-'';;��������� :yi���������  fhe period known as "shooting  the rfed," is one of the most critical  for young turkeys. Providing, however, they are properly amended to,  and are front good, vigorous stock,  they should emerge through thia trying time successfully. Draught-proof  and clean shelters must be provided.  Turkeys should not be overcrowed  or confined. Not more than ten or  fifteen should be run to the acre.  When the young stock are fed  regularly in the evening, it should not  be difficult to get them to roost in  their proper quarters, or in trees,  where no vermin abound.  Before marketing surplus stock,  they should be penned up in a small  clean run; and fed on soft fod for  at least two weeks. The fattening  mash may consist of equal parts  ground oats, shorts, white middlings,  and corn-meal, mixed quite sloppy  with skim or butter milk. This should  be fed twice daily, and all remains removed ten .minutes after feeding.  They should be fed only half-rations  for the first three or four days, to  promote an appetite. .Give milk or  water to drink.  When killing or marketing, the mistake is often made ���������. of selling the  largest and finest turkeys. A sufficient number of the very best should  always be kept for stock purposes.  The. former proceeding soon tends  to make the rearing more difficult,  and, of course, less profitable. The  largest if abnormally so, need not be  retained. Sufficient strong, sturdy,  medium-sized toms should be retained, and well-conditioned, medium  to large females.  Business Directory  B. C Elaetrie Co.  For Bverythfbg Electrical,  none 8ey. SAM.

Its average tensile strength is 24,000 pounds  per square inch; in other words a bar  of this wood one inch square will  (in theory, at least) hold up a weight  of twelve tons. This is equal to  good cast iron. No similar tests of  Canadian woods have as yet been  made, but at the Forest Products Laboratories, recently established by  the Dominion' Government' at McGill  University, it is propqsed to investigate the mechanical properties of  native tree specieS,<% with a view of  determining, on a scientific basis,  their utility for structural work.

Tbe  meeting was in charge of'the citizenship committee and Mr. J. R. Tate  occupied the chair.  ' Mr. Collier, in the course of his remarks, spoke of the institution of  some such a society as the league in  jails, so that it might Inspire self-dependence and idealism among the  prisoners. Referring to the proper  it_ujiauon respecting criminals, air.  uoiuer suggested several matters oi  importance. Tae government should  matte provision for the maintalnance  of the family dependent upon the man  who had bean taken from them by the  law and sugeste-f an Industrial farm  run by the government where all who  are In our institutions should work  and receive a reasonable wage to be  used for the support of those dependent on them, or to be kept by the. government ia trust for the laborer to be  given him on hla release.

R. N. Powell, speaking before  the Me.thodlst Ministerial Association  on Mobday afternoon on tbe subject  of "The Child in the Chu/ch." gave a  very practical and sympathetic study  of the question from tbe minister's  standpoint. Mr. Powell thought with  out doubt, many who are now outside  the church, were one, day in the Sun  day scbool but were not brought into  actual church membership. Membership in the Sunday school and membership in the church; he Bald, are not  the same). The Sunday achool has not  met it's full responsibility lf It has  not brought it's members Into the  church. It is highly important that  the child should be an. atendant at  tho Sunday morning service in the  church and that some part of every  church service should be of interest to  blm. such as "a talk," the hymn, or  the sermon.  The address was very much appreciated and was followed by a general  discussion, In which several ministers reported tbe|r experiences and  views.  Sometimes claim, to be paper-  hangers and offer to paper your  house cheap if; you furnish the  materials. ;%pan you afford to  take the risk? A cheap job of  papering is expensive in the end.

Wood, Gundy St  Co., of Toronto, payable in New York.  The price Is ������aid to be favorable,  in view of keeu'competitlon, but haying regard for the fact that a large  Issue. of South Vancouver debentures  is about to be made it is not deemed  advisable by the fiscal agents, that the  price at which the school debentures  have been sold should be published  at present  At a special meeting it was decided  to spend $1,000 in each of the seven  wards and to go ahead*with the installing of the 8-inch water pipe on  Main Street, which, it is estimated,  will cost about $5,000. This will materially help out with the work problem, though not perhaps as much as  the council would desire.  Reeve Kerr told a Western Call representative on Tuesday that lt was  their intention to start the drainage  on Main Street soon, preparatory to  paving, and an arrangement had been  made with the Dominion Creosote  Co., who have the contract in hand, to  employ as many South vancQuer men  as possible. He hoped to see 80 or TO  men. working in' relays, employeu  during the present month by the -municipality. *  ��������� ��������� * '*-  To a representative of the Western  Call, who saw him on Wednesday,  Reeve Kerr definitely stated his intention of again being in the field, for  mayor, if South Vancouver was incorporated, or for reeve, if it remained  a municipality. "I consider," he said,  "that my career as reeve has been attended with success and I have had  the experience, now, of possibly two  of the most strenuous years during  the lifetime of the municipality. .  ���������"I will continue-my policy of progress for the municipality and I.think  it should be carried out along the  lines which-will encourage the location of industries in South Vancouver.  I feel that the councillors for the coming years must set their minds to getting work for the men of the municipality. ThiB must be done through  establishing works.  "lam strongly in favor of municipal  ownership ot public utilities where  possible. I consider that the councillors, during the next years, must  take up the matter of sewering a large  part of the municipality, as the government sewerage commission' are  building the trunk sewers.  "I am in favor of extending our fire  department and apparatus for protection from fire, the continuing of our  water, works operation along the lines  of a permanent water supply, the re  trenchment in financial matters where  consistent with our needs as above,  but I feel that not only in hard times  is there a. necessity for this retrenchment It is also welt to bear in mind  a correct amount of moderation in  prosperity.  "I believe that all road work should  be o'f a permanent nature where possible."  Interior B.C. News  GRAND FORKS. B. C���������An experimental farm under the management  of the Provincial Department of Agrt-  culture), in connection with the recently Inaugurated scheme for a series  of experimental farms is to be established at Grand Forks. According to  J. C. Ready, of the Government department at Victoria, who has been in  Grand Forks to look over the ground,  the location for the new station has  now. been decided upon, and a plot of  four., acres of the park grounds will  be used. The outlay for rental., seed  and manager's salary will be met by  the department, the manager to be  appointed by the local fanners' Institute. Experimental farming of a  practical nature will be undertaken  with a view to establishing a stand*  ard for farmers and fruit growers of  the district.  ELKO, B. C���������Holiday tourists this  season are showing a-marked preference for British Columbia rather than  for a visit to the Old Country, says C.  E. McPherson, assistant traffic manager for the C. P. R. western passenger division. As a result thousands  of Easterners are learning for the  first time of the resources and possibilities of the Pacific Coast Province  and especially of, the Boundary district and the East Kootenay country.  Mr. McPherson expects this' class of  travel to be unusually heavy from  now on to the end of the. year.  A leading point of interest, It is recognised, to Easterners visiting the far  West for the first time is the fruitgrowing industry ln the Boundary district, where as a result of a few yeara'  effort thousands of acres of stgntiy  orchard tracts, varying in extent from  five to ten Scree and upwards, have  nq-w been brought to the stage of  steady yearly : production and dependable profit earning. It is also  noted that the orchard acreage in and  around the Elko district Is Increasing  steadily year by year, and even within  the past few months thousands of  young fruit trees have been set out,  to say nothing of-the extensive plant*  ine of small fruits such as strawberries, gooseberries and currants.

This  Is a mistake, and a short-sighted one,  for we en always learn from honest  criticism. It was the great genius of  Scottish literature "who said:  "Oh, wad some power the giftie gie  us,  To see oorsels as ithers see us."  No apology is needed for quoting  this week, the following from an English-Canadian contributor the Dominion's great new National Weekly,  Canadian Countryman:  There are two classes of Canadians:  those who couldn't help being Canadians, and those who could. I would  be very proud to belong to the  "couldn't-help-lt" clasB. But I belong  to the other, and would like to tell  you why. "  "In the first place, you asked us to  come.

"A Sussex man who has become as  keen a Canadian as I have, began life  in Ontario on a farm, with hla wife.  They are good people, who do good  to others, and who are already better  off than they ever hoped to be ln England. They left the farm because they  were continually subject to nagging  about their nationality. They suffered for the sins of others.  "In the second place, I am a Canadian because I know Canada. By a  fortune I never deserved I went  through the mill of pioneering in the  West, between 1885 nd 1891. After  fourteen years' absence. I returned,  and in six years I have travelled a  hundred and fifty thousand miles between Halifax and Victoria.  "Will you forgive me if I state that  a great deal of Canadian pride is  nourished upon a very little knowledge of Canada.   They know not Eng  land who only England know. They  know not Canada who only Cauda  know. Still less do they know Canada who only their province know. A  knowledge of the whole gives us a  saner, more understanding pride,  coupled with a more sympathetic tol  eratlon of the idiosyncrasies of other  people.  Of deliberate choice, then, 1  brought my family to Canada.' They  do not want to go back to the land  of their birth. We do not speak of  England as "home.' This is our home,  and we want no other.  "There is a glory of the native-  born, the thrill that passes through  your heart and down your spine when  the sacremental element of your nativity makes its subtle, compelling appeal to your mind. I know what it  is. but not in Canada. If you have it,  cherish it; be exceeding glad when it  comes to you.  "We need not envy you, the native-  born. You need not envy us, the British born. We are meet for one another, to conspire to make Canada as  noble in reputation as she is great  In extent." ,  West Vancouver  Mr. Joan Lawson, reeve ot West  Vancouver, has decided to ran for that  offiee. again. He anounced his intention to a large) and Influential tonal*  tion representing the West Vancouver Ratepoyera; Association which  waited on him recently. Several of  the deputation voiced their appreciation of his record during the present  year, and said It would be a matter  of regret If he should retire at this  stage of the municipality's development  In his reply Mr. Lawson said he  had been considering the question ot  retirement as. his own private business should occupy a portion of hla  time. In view, however, of the important character of the request, be  would reply ln the affirmative.  Mr. 8. E.

'  Story tf a Bare  .   Faced  Agricultural Report  Ottawa, Nov. 15.���������The Census and  Statistics Office has issued today th*  usual bulletin upon agricultural conditions throughout Canada as reported  by correspondents at the end ol October. The report gives estimatee of  the areas, yields and values ot root  and fodder crops, of the area sown  to fall wheat for next year's harvest,  of the. proportions of ploughing com*  Dieted this foil soad of the acreage  summer billowed in 1913!  *The total area under root and fodder crops (potatoes, turnips, mangolds  etc., hay and clover, alfalfa, fodder  corn and sugar beets), is placed at  8,693,000 acres and the. total value ot  the products from this area at $187,*  399,100.. Tbe estimated total yields  Revalues of these crop* are: potatoes; 76,720,000 bushels, value $37,379,-  000; turnips and other -roots, 73,090,000  bushels, value $20,103,000; hay and  cloye.r, 10,050,000 tons, value $114,789-  000; fodder corn, 2,436,300 tons, value  $11,273,500; alfalfa, 251,700 tops,  value' $2,895,600, and sugar beets, 161,:  000 tons, value $959,000. These figures are provisional, as finally corrected returns, based on the Census ot  1911, will be available, for publication  at the end of the year. The average  yields per acre for tbe Dominion are  reported as 165.85- bushels tor potatoes, as compared with 172.19 bushels  last year, 354.12 bushels Tor turnips  and other roots as compared with  402.51, 1.32 ton for hay and clover as  compared with 1.47 ton, 8.64 tons for  fodder corn as compared with 10.26,  and 2.44 tons for alfalfa as compared  with 2.79. It will be recalled that last  year's wet season was especially favourable, for roots and fodder crops.  In quality all these crops are marked as about 90 or above 90 per cent,  of the standard, excepting fodder corn,  which ls 85.  The potato yield is highest In New  Brunswick, 244 bushelB, and lowest  In Ontario, 119 bushels. The area estimated to be sown to fall wheat for  the crop of 1914 totals 1,006,700 acres,  as compared with 1,086,800 acres, the  area estimated to have, been sown in  1912 for 1913. This represents a net  diminution for the Ave provinces of  Ontario, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia of 80,100  acres, or 7.37 per cent. Ontario where  nearly seven-tenths of the crop ls  grown remains practically stationary  the estimated total production being  only 2,000 acres from 696,000 acres.  There ls a diminution of 1,100 acres  in the two provinces of Manitoba and  British Columbia, offset by an increase  of 6,000 acres, making 78,000 acres in  Saskatchewan. The bulk of the reduction is therefore in Alberta, where  the acreage la estimated as 229,000 as  against 312,000, or a decrease of 83,-  000 acrea���������nearly 27 per cent. Correspondents attribute this decrease to  the excessive amount of winter killing  of fall wheat during the las ttbree  years in consequence of which many  farmers have given up this crop altogether. The condition of fall wheat  for all Canada averages 93.74 per cent  of a standard, Manitoba and Saskatchewan showing the. best condition  with 95 and 96 points respectively.  The percentage of fall ploughing  completed compares well with laBt  ysar, when however the conditions  were exceptionally unfavorable. The  percentage ranges from tbe lowest of  30 in Saskatchewan to the highest of  70 in Quebec. In Manitoba and Alber-  1 ta the respective percentages are 58  Everyone will remember tho famous  ���������or' infamou*���������Sheldon caae which  occurred In Montreal a very few yeara  ago. This venture, which was a typical blind pool, was started by a man  named Robinson., an ex-convict from  across the border, who in this instance, adopted the name of 8heldon  the better to get away from his shady  past He advertised tar and wide  throughout Quebec and OntarioVJthat  he could make big money lh the stock  market, and would pay very high dividends to all who would loin hia pooL  So many years had e)apeed since  the game had been tried in Canada  that credulous persons swallowed the  halt, hook" ind all. Large sums ot  money were advanced to bim, and a*  Sheldon lived up to his promises by  adopting the old plan of paying dividends oh one man's deposit by the  simple procedure of taklnt; the necessary funds out of the capital advanced  by others, every day, saw new gamblers Joining in the venture. Thus the  new "lambs" Joining the pool paid "the  profits for the older members, and as  on account of the large profits Jhe  scheme became very popular, It was  only a case of waiting until the promoter of the farce had accumulated  enough1 money on hand to satisfy blm  and then to skip out. However, the  suspicions of the authorities were  aroused as a result of the criticism of  one. or two newspapers who had attacked the swindle from the flrat, and.  undaunted by Sheldon's threats of  libel suits, called on the officers of  tbe law to step ln and put a stop to  the farce. At this time Sheldon quietly left Montreal, and though he was  later arrested across the border, his  victims lost the major portion of what  had been advanced.  It ls estimated that the amount of  money lost by the Canadian public in  the Shejdon blind' pool ran Into about  a mililon/dollare, and very little of  this was ever recovered. Whatever  he took away with him when he absconded���������and it must have been.avery  large amount���������Sheldon, or Robinson  to give him his right name, either lost  in gamblings or e.lse secreted somewhere for future use. When he was  brought to trial, only the .most simple  and, therefore, the most to be pitied of  his dupes appeared agatast him, the  majority ot the victims preferring to  take their loss in silence rather than  confess participation in so nefarious  a scheme. For what intelligent person does not know that impossible "returns" on Investments, such as are  promised, and, indeed, paid for a time  in these cases; must mean wrong done  to someone in order to benefit a second party, and ultimately and more  particularly, a third���������the designing  operator himself.  The remarkable success of Sheldon  was all the more surprising in view  of the tact tbat the few reputable  newspapers and magazines which, endeavored to lay bare the vulnerable  points of hts half-baked plans recalled  In detail the history of the many blind  pools which had preceded it, and particularly the Qjtoiy 4of the famous  Franklin syndicate, one of the greatest  swindles of the lest decade ot the  nineteenth century, which will be  treated in another article in this  series. The. large sums lost ln this  venture and the ruination which it  brought to so many persons should  have impressed the incident so clearly  oh the mind ot the public that similar  schemes would be impossible. However, even the lessons so dearly  learned are easily forgotten, as the  Sheldon affair plainly shows.  The vulnerable point ln connection  with tbe blind pool Is that it supposes  a pen-on can beat the stock market  continuously. The people who make  up this world consist of "mostly fools,"  according to Carlyle,* and the remarkable success of such bare-faced swindles as that perpetrated by Sheldon  clearly demonstrates that there bas  been no change in that respect in recent years.���������A.

Correspondence  Civic 8ervlce and a Disclaimer.  To the Editor "Western Call."  Sir,���������ln announcing my intention  Not. to stand as a candidate for the  representation of Ward Six at the  forthcoming election, I seek this opportunity to express appreciation of the  solicitations of the many friends to  enter the list at this term.  There would appear to be several  vacancies in that of the, school trustees. The time at our disposal, with  a large, experience ln educational affairs, may obtain an endorsation by  the electors. The communication  from the bond-holders ln approbation  of the "cautton" exercised by the civic  council withholding (for a year) further money bylaws recalls the urgency for revision Of the assessment  roll, to provide increased revenue ln  the precence of coming fresh obligations.  The usual form of civic taxation is  upon rental, but tne "wise" men of  this city have adopted the single tax,  and proclaim that they have "solved"  It. They have no more done so than  the composition bf the moon.  The single tax is capable of practical operation when applied to agricultural areas, but when lt comes to  civic communities it is the saddle on  another "horse.   ..  The tax earns its name, from being  the only one in existence, applied to  the. only correct basis of taxation-  land. Improvements are the cultivation of lana, it being a fixed quantity,  and the fruits are for the sustenance  oi life. Ten and fifteen storey, blocks  are not improvement but detriment;  absorbing sunshine and light which  are essential to human existence. To  apply the single tax in this municipality there has to be brought.into  operation the law of custom; determining the bight* of buildings in proportion to the width of the streets.  This applied to Vancouver means that  there are no erections in Granville  Street higher than six storeys, and in  Hastings and Pender streets higher  than five storeys; those who go beyond that���������who lay claim to tbat  which they have neither right or title  of, -possession���������become subjects of  taxation. ^ .    ,  Until this ls carried out it would  be advisable to keep a "calm sough"  on the solving of tbe single tax-.  Tbertf appeared in the press, the  -(revived) scheme, details of Board of  Control; like "commission government, tt is equally inadmlsable; 'infringing eopftitutlopal law. and rights.

No provln-  ctal legislature eould entertain it for  a single hour, knowing (ns they do)  to entertain It would call down the  Jurisdiction of the (Imperial) Privy  Council, wbo would Immediately ordain the restitution of the representative rights of the people.  There ts no need for "rush;" It will  copie along In' good time; the realisation and comprehension of tbe only  way and form of civic government;  along the. constitutional lines which  the charter of tbe ctty is laid.  , There should be remembered in, the  over-discounting of the results from  the. opening of the Panama Canal, that  the experience. In shipping circles wa*  marked by the lap*e of years before  the Sues Canal made any appreciable  difference in routes.  W. PORTEOUS JACK.

Yarrow, one of the largest  shipbuilders of Glasgow, was accompanied by the members of the North  Fraser Harbor Board,-Mr. J. D. Taylor, M.P., Reeve Churchill and Councillor Wells, of Point Grey, to the  North Fraser last week, in order that  he might see the advantages. Mr.  Yarrow was accompanied by his son,  Mr. A. N.

The trip was  made in the launch Marawe.  In the forenoon the party made the  trip to tbe mouth of the North Arm,  coming back to Eburne for lunch,  which was served.at the Grand Central Hotel. The afternoon was spent  In a run up the river as far as Burnaby.  Mr. Yarrow and his companions  showed the greatest Interest in everything they saw and stored up many  notes of importance, and showed a  keen appreciation of the. bigness of  the Fraser River.  The size of the river made a great  impression.on him, as well as the location along the river bank for manufacturing, sites. Hi* keen perception  took ln the lay of the land not, only  from a water standpoint hut drainage  as well, while at the same time he  was Interested in the lay of tbe land  from a residential viewpoint and was  much interested In the cost of build*  Ing houses of the smaller slse.  That tbe river could be made navigable did not seem to cause Mr. Yar  row any doubt whatever.   The mak--  ing of the North Fraser into a harbor  in hi8 estimation was merely a que**"  tion of finance.  Tbe party are making a' systematic  investigation of all the likely situations adjacent to Vancouver and when  they reach their choice if they do con*  aider locating there i( will only be-  after mature < consideration and that  place will benefit greatly by their,  choosing.   y '���������' "-.'���������'.."
