VANCOUVER, Dec. 3.-Returns available up to this morning indicate the following standing of the parties in the new British Columbia legislature: Liberals 25: Conservatives 15; Independents 7. ) There m^y be some slight change in this alignment of the parties,^s several constituencies have* not yet re-portied final returns. Atlin, which is still in doubt, at latest reports showed Bert Kergin (Liberal) with 266 votes, B.Casey (Independent) ^th 205, and Captain Ross (Conservative) with 182 It is^ contended, however, by many of the electors of Atlin that-the absentee vote may give Ros& the lead, over Kergin.

Powers of the United Parmers 61 Ontario co-operative company, appeared before the Dominion Tariff Commission today, asking for tariff reductions to give the farmers greffter prosperity. He claimed that pratficted industries did not endeavor to develop export business. Sir Henry Drayton challenged this statement, saying that Mr. Powers hid apparently not sufficiently studied the situation. Mr. Powers .admitted that his organization exported practically all the eggs It controlled, but was importing eggs from the United States for salo here. PiVe cars of cheap eggs were recently bought in Minneapolis; 40 carloads are now being shipped from Ontario to United States purchasers. Mr. Powers explained that his company bought the Ontario eggs at summer prices, put them in cold storage and sold them when eggs were scarce. In answer to a suggestion from Chairman Drttyton as to whether the organization was doing right in hoarding eggs, Mr. Powers denied that they had hoarded anything, btit cold storage could be abused although, in itself, it was a good thing. His organization believed in buying in the cheapest market. Shortage of production had caused the depr^lation of the Cjinad-ian dollar in the United States, but increasing Canadian exports would rectify that. He admitted that farmers had done well in the past few years, but not so well, he said, as other industries.  ALBKRTA OIL BEFORE   BRITISH H. OF C.  ^ � -..

The three men were forced to submit, being bound and were lying hog-tied on the floor of the car when the train stopped at the station. The police Immediately started a search for the bandits who are believed to have been picked up by an automobile after they jumped from the train.

GIBSON DEAD < INGERSOLL, Ont., Dec. 3.--Joseph Gibson, postmaster here since 1882 and one of the most prominent temperance workers in Canada, died yesterday in his 79th year.

Hole announces that he is in the field as an independent candidate for Mayor. TRIESTE, Dec. 3.-A state of war between the kingdom of Italy and the "regency of Quarnero" at Fiume began at midnight, but up to. a few minutes before that time there was no visible evidence that actual hostilities' impended. The blockade of Flume was continuing and the only indications of trouble were the fierce pronouncements of Capt&ln Gab-riele d'Annunzlo against General Caviglla and the regular Italian troops which were surrounding the city. Communication between Fiume and 1 the islands of Arde and Veglia was cut 1 by an Italian patrol in the Gulf of' Quarnero and supplies cannot bo taken ; to them from the cit; . Tlnfs the poet-! soldler^s, occupational troops there ap-! pear to be isolated. ' Railway traffic was functioning late last right, but the usual rostrictious were enforced on the line of ilenaarca-tion between Fiume and the occupation zone . outside, passage of the d'Annunzian legionaries through the lines being forbidden. Emissaries of d'Annunzlo are going to and fro explaining nis point of view, but shortly before midnight there were no extraordiuai-y signs that the threat of war would take a more concrete form. General Caviglia has been able to tighten the conditions under which d'Annunzlo's forces are held in Fiume and all ships under the com- | mand of tho poet-soldier remain in i the harbor, not venturing Ijcyoud the! breakwater of the port. \ [ Fiume seemed 'tranquil yesterday, with the exception of unimportant i raids by submarine chasers. There ' was not the slightest movement of I the population, which was maintaining an indifferent attitude toward tho legionaries who were engrossed "in the work of defense." A member of d'Annunzlo's staff told the Associated Press yesterday that d'Annunzlo wished recognition of his services in occupying Flume from parliament and that he would become conciliatory in that event. "No one can deny," he continued. "d'Annunzzio saved Kiumi', but no mention has been made of his work in recent parliamentary orders." Tho cordon of carabineers surrounding Fiume was increased yesterday and a very strict watch was being kept on all approaches to the city. the natural resources of Alberta collected by the Dominion government in the year 1920, will approxinkte and may exceed three million dollars, ac* cording to estimates given to< tho Canadian Press here by Attom^y| General J. R. Boyle. In retMf^t tha prdvlnce is getting this year tM'iutjl of approximately $650,000 frpm f(bd federal subsidy. , . ' "We would certainly be wiUinjf tof^ into the matter bf tho-tetum of tife natural resources to the province the basis of an accounting,": said Ijlr, Boyle. The attoi'neygoneral waa lii the city only a short time, on his way. to Vancouver, where ho will be fof la few days on i government';. businesp. When Mr. Boylp was asked whether Alberta was cotL.teiUplatitigjtaking; action in the, courts, as suggested by, Manitoba, to recover- the., natural resources of the western, provinces',.he talked at con&ldQFable length on the subject. , The gist ttf his remarks :Tva8 that the provincial government preferred to' exhaust methods of negotiation first, but if forced to do so, might choose some other course. Among other things, Mr. Boyle point*-ed out that in the first oil rush lu Southern Alberta, the federal government took In much more than a million dollars In revenue .from oil leasps. With the new oil rush In the north, the attoKney-general .estimates tbat the federal government wUf take.ln more^han a million dollars and more likely two million dbilars from tbit source this-.year. "All that Alberta asks is to be placed on au equality with the other provinces df Canada, all the provitt4e8 except Manitoba, Saskatchewan i^Vt Alberta controlling their own natural resources. Our coal output in Alberta this year has gone over the 7,500,00o ton mark and between royalty ^nd rentals, the Dominion government is deriving a revenue of ten cents ou ftu average from this coal. The federal government , should net more than $700,000 from'the coal resources alone In Alberta this year and our total sub' sidy given, supposedly in lieu of lands, is only |6CO,000 for this year. "But this is only a small part ot the revenue that tho Dominion government will take out of this province this year. No doubt the revenue froni the oil leases will run over a milllou (Continued from Front Page) MINERS BACK TO WORK; REQUEST A CONCILIATION BOARD EDMONTON, Dec. 3.-Voting to fife an application at once for a conciliation board, coal miners on strike in Edmonton district decided at a meeting Thursday evening to return to work Saturday morning. Nearly 700 miners are affected by the decision. Pending the finding of a board of conciliation to be authorized by the min" ister of labor, the men wilj resume work tomorrow morning. BEFORE TROOPS AVAILABLE DANISH PARLIAMENT MUST PASS BILL GENEVA, Dec. 3.-Denmark has notified the League of Nations that both houses of the Danish parliament must pass a sp'eC-iai bill before Danish troops can join the international league army. The Danish delegation explained, however, that all the political parties In Denmark favor the sending of troops to tha Vilna plebiscite zone.
