He made his complaint a moetlng of managers and lanagers - ln - tralnlng and In the reeence of store executives. The ext day he was dismissed "for liking too much." The J22 - a - weete manager was orced to transfer money every .eek from his pocket to the till to alanre his stock, he said. Although ne always gave 16 oun - es to the pound, he was forced to lake exaggerated applications for hortage and wastage allowance to alance his stock.

He did not open the tore. Pace was the first of 10 or 12 ormer store managers to be call - d today.

He said chain stores were being placed in regrettable and unfor - unate positions because tney coma lot call rebuttal evidence against heir former employes until several Jays later. Rebuttal Evidence The commission finally decided to permit chain stores to call rebuttal vldence tomorrow, or as soon as they could. This procedure, Ellis said, would permit the chains to catch up with any unfavorable publicity they mleht get and would place tnem in a portion where they were not on trial, as In a criminal court.

Scorpions, Snakes, Tarantulas Are Among Dangers Braved by Fruit Handlers By E. M. 8MITH Every year, thousands of bunches of bananas are shipped from Central America to markets in Canada and the United States. Every year, thousands of poisonous insects and reptiles "stow away" In the fruit, and are discovered at the north end of - O. - s - 'efie; "Ty , Tarantulas, tarantellas, - arorprtcn of all colors and sizes, snakes, lizards, centipedes, tree - snails - all these are the unwanted immigrants that smuggle themselves across several borders into the fruit warehouses of Winnipeg. Fortunately, the great majority of them are . - ggnnd - 'bvloiv they tio "at.y fimfm: "" While bananas are well known as the principal carriers of these venomous Insects, other fruit may 'ikewlse be found to contain some if them. Tomatoes from Mexico, for Instance, may bring with them the deadly little Mexican scorpion. Collects Specimens A man who has been on the receiving end of the fruit - trade route in Winnipeg probably longer than any man In Western Canada, has made a hobby of collecting many of the specimens he finds. These he catches, kills, and either mounts himself or gives to other collectors. He uses one of two means of capturing the Insects. At the warehouse he keeps a small box, In two sections, having a glass top. When he sees one of the spiders or other Insects, he simply traps It between the two sections. In the case of snakes, or when the spider Is too lively, a liberal douching of cold water temporarily stuns them, and they may be secured without danger. He then has his prisoners, "alive, in an "exhibit - box." In this he can take them home, and then identify and mount them. They are usually killed by means of chloroform. In mounting his specimens, this man removes the internal organs very carefully, and through the incision made for this purpose In - lects shellae with an eye - dropper. The outer surface is then lightly coated with the same material, a fine brush being used. When they have drted, he places them in small "show - cases," containing from one to three of the insects. Only a Dozen At present he has only about a dozen specimens at home. Others he has given to collectors, to the university, and to children for their schools. As he said. If he kept all he caught, his home would be overcrowded. His collection contains tarantulas, tarantella, - scorpions," treev - snuiis and ono snake. The tarantulas, most fearsome - looking of all, averse about three - and - a - half inches In diameter. Tneir bodies are laree. and the legs thick Bo'h .re b!a"k. ann covered. .wita xos. Aairs .. .?s.' ..r?CY vs. tnaula.': . stuitea, Uv.. Lite 1 of this Insert i - lot fatal It is, however, hiphlv Irritating. The tarantella is, In appearance, an overgrown "daddy longlegs." His ovsr - all diameter Is a:r.iost as great as that of the tarantula, but his body is small, the legs thinner and longer. This insect will jump, like a grasshopper, while the heavier insect runs. The bite of the taran tella Is fatal. A courageous fighter, he .tumps at the face of his Intended victim. - - - Dadeet e All Scorpions are the deadliest of all. Thev are found In all warm coun tries, and In India the fact that they can hide so readily makes them more feared than the king cobra snake. The poison from their bite spreads quickly through the blood - stream, and death comes within a very short time. This Winnipeg collector has specimens of three kinds of scorpion. Largest of these is the black Indian scorpion, measuring three Inches In length. Its appearance resembles a lobster with several sections added, one behind the other, to the centre of the back. Two Men Bitten The other scorpions are s little more than an Inch long. Two are of the type known as the red scorpion, and the other, brown in color, is the Mexican scorpion. Within the last year, two Winnipeg men working In Fruit Row have been bitten by scorpions, one on the henl of the hand, and the other on the index finger. The victims were immediately rushed to the General hospital. An injection was made below the bite, and the bite itself burned out with acid. The men had sore hands for a few days, but nothing more. In many cases of poisonous bites, a vacuum cup is placed over the bite, and the poison drawn out. Many fruit men have had narrow escapes. One was unloading bananas from a fruit car, carrying the bunches into the warehouse. As he set one bunch down, he found a small snake curled around his forearm. Another man carried a similar bunch in on his shoulder. When he set that down a tarantula was sitting comfortably behind his left ear. Neither of these men were bitten. Strangely enough, the collector whose specimens are described above, has never been bitten in the 27 vears he has been handling fruit There have been no fatalities in Winnipeg from Insects in Imported fruit, said this man. He had heard of a case in Saskatoon, where a man was bitten and died within a few hours. Another man In the United States, he said, was bitten bv a snake hidden In some bananas. This man d - d not die. h - ii wis V!d ilunroe,uo for months from the effects of the poison. The snakes that came to Winnipeg, he stated, were of a tvne unknown to him. In all his experience, he had been unable to Identify them. However, no chances were taken, and the reptiles were killed without delay. Fruit importers, it seems, are engaged in a business whose risks are far greater than most would imagine, BANK PRESIDENT LAUDS BRITAIN'S TRADE REVIVAL Sir Charles Gordon Recommends Legislation For Unemployment URGES CO - ORDINATION OF ALL RAILROADS Governments Should Effect Long - IerrtL Loans,. Share - J. holders Told By Canadian Praaa MONTREAL, Dec. 3 The inspiring example of Great ' Britain in trade revival was held before Cana dians as modella the - prMldeatlal - l address of Sir Charles B. Gordon, JeKVereTT toaaf befufe TLe alina&T meeting of Bank of Montreal shareholders. Sir Charles contrasted the unified efforts at business improvement in Great Britain with the economic experiments of the United States and said: "It Is a reasonable deduction that the wisest course for us to follow Is to give single - minded devotion to reviving business by the methods which experience has shown to be fundamentally sound and not to interfere with tbe Improvement now under way by applying new and untried theories and enacting hampering legislation." Recommendations In the fields of government and finance, the bank president offered the following recommendations: Legislation dealing with the whole subject of unemployment wi1' have to be undertaken in Canada and the United States, as it Is the greatest problem since the war. Losses of the Canadian National railways are the greatest deterrent to Canada's financial recovery and the first step in a proper co - ordination of all forms of co - ordination is the co - ordination of the railways. All forms of transportation should be regulated by a Dominion board. i Ir the present strong n.arket for government bonds, governments should effect long - term rather than short - term borrowing. Depositors may be considered as preferred shareholders of banks and no action should be taken that would further ourtall the earning power of the commercial banks. Outlook Hopeful I" the outlook for ttys future, Sir Charles said, there are many reasons that justify the hope for continuation of the betterment during thj past year.

A. C. Garrioch Caught Spirit of West in Four Charming Books One of Manitoba's most picturesque historians has just laid down his pen. He is Rev. A. C. Garrioch, son of the Red River valley, who died Sunday evening at his home, 599 Mulvey ave. In his death western Canada has lost an interpreter of that illusive spirit of the great prairie land, gradually passing with the rise of cities, smoke stacks and the noise of commerce. Rev, Mr. Garrioch was a true son of the church. From his early man hood he served the Anglican mis sions, 17 years in the Arctic regions of the Mackenzie river and later in other points farther south. He wrote four books: "First Furrows," "The Far and Furry North," "Hatchet Mark in Duplicate" and "The Correction Line." It - is their quaint charm which will live long in memory. He was engaged in writing a fifth book, sitting three hours daily at his desk. A man of r.aet h&bits, - fcs had his day mapped out for his labor to which only death called a halt. Mr. Garrioch was of very retiring nature, but many who did not l know him personally will remember tne siient. aipQien tjpurp y;" hat. walking with difficulty on a neavy suck, in the otner hand was a small leather case. For the past year he had been confined almost entirely to his home. Born In Middlechurch He was born In Middlechurch, in lf48. His grandfather. John Garrioch, followed the same profession. His mother was the daughter of Colin Campbell, of Port Dunve - 8 an. ' " Like his father and grandfather, Rv. AC - tiatriocfl - was - also teacher. After receiving his education, with his brothers and sisters, at McCallum academy, he taught for some years In Winnipeg. Ho was the last to teach in the parochial schools, being at St John's from 1868 till 1871, during the Riel rebellion. He was the first teacher in the city of Winnipeg under public school control, having a class of ten in Holy Trinity vestry. Became Missionary Ordained to the ministry In 1886, he went north with Bishop Bom - pas, to help establish an Indian industrial school. He became an ardent missionary, and remained in the north for 17 years, working at Fort Vermillion, Ungava, Punve - gan, Rapir City and High Bluff. His literary works were started during his period of service as a missionary, one of his great accomplishments being a complete translation of the Bible into the Beaver Indian language. Mr. Garrioch retired from active church work several years ago. and mado his homo with hi - family in Winnipeg. He had been a devoted and honored member of St. Luke s church during his last year's. Funeral on Wednesday He Is survived by his widow: four sons Vincent and Vernon, at Portage la Prairie, and Harold and Stanley, at Hudson's Bay Junrtlon; and by four daughters Mrs. W. J. Barling, of Clear Lake, Man., and lna, Verena and Dorothy, at home. One brother, W. Scott Garrioch, lives In Portage, and thero are threo xistcrs living Mrs. Andrew Maxwell, of Holland, Man.; Mrs. J. Richardson, of Toronto, and Mrs. J. Hannen, of Montreal. A funeral service for Rev. Mr. Garrioch will be hfld Wednesday at 2.30 p m. in St. Luke's Anglican church. Rev. Csnon Bertal Heeney will be the officiating clergyman. Later the body will be lorward from the Thomson funeral chapel to Portage la Prairie, where burial will be In the family plot, Thursday. Two Escape With Minor Injuries When Hit by Truck Robert Otafsoa and Mrs. K'.sie Oiafson, 373 Carlton St., escaped with cuts ard bruises when they were struck ty a truck while crossing Notre Dame ave. at McGee sL, about 7 p.m. Saturday. They were taken to the Gei.t - r; hospital where, after being given treatment, thev were allowed to go home. Henry Rasmussen, 158 Provenchef st., St. Boniface, was driver of the truck. w CKY Builds Plant Plumb on Meridian Line By Chance New Station Marks Principal Line Established Back In 1869 Accident played a strange part in location of the new CKY radio station at Headlngly that may give it a scientific value for geodetic signalling purposes its promoters never intended It to have. Its 230 - foot tower stands on the first meridian line, located in 1869 by Col. J.. S. Dennis, later surveyor - general of Canada. He was snt by the Dominion government 65 years ago to inaugurate a survey of the Red River valley and suggest a jclwmej upon .which JU .base, surveys,! .before fletlic - i&er.t etarud. - ' Cair - . Built ! 4936 The junction of Col. Dennis' line with the trans - Canada highway was marked by erection of a cairn in 1930 on a site donated by Hon. Aime Benard and J. T. Haig, M.L.A. The work was done on recommendation of the Historic Sites and. Monumenk - Board of Canada The cairn is a snort liisiance west .oi sj - '.rioue - to.jaeilicily. Ja&. - When the government decided to give CKY a new location, engineers conducted a long series of experiments, and finally recommended the north bank of the Assiniboine, west of Winnipeg. One day they started to locate the exact spot and commenced working west from the jail building along the bank of the river. Tney decided on the present site as the most suitable. Long after, they ran a line due north to the highway ard ran into the cairn. It was an accident, they said, that the new station wns on the meridian line. Not until the work was well started and the tower partly up was it discovered. Surveyors Get "Break The coincidence and the cairn are the only two occasions of history where public recognition has been given to 6,000 years of unob trusive - service by surveyors, de clared S. E. McColl. provincial director of surveys. Hon W. J. Major, K.C.. minister of telephones, doubts the factual accuracy of Mr. McColl's claim. Somewhere in Deuteronomy, he says, surveyors were given a break" In the words. "Thou e'nalt not remove thy neighbor's land mark, which they of old have set in thine Inheritance, which thou shalt inherit In the land that the Lord they God glveth thee to possess It." That, ne says, was only 3,385 years ago. DESCENDANT OF SELKIRK SETTLERS DIES Alexander Gunn, 69, Queen St. south, St. James, died Saturday morning in tne Miserlcordia hos - Sital.

MARCUS HYMAN URGES SUPPORT FOR DEMOCRACY Problems attendant upon the assumption of a dictatorship by any country were discussed by Marcus Hyman, M L A , at the opening meeting of the North Winnipeg LLP. Sunday afternoon forum. Mr - Hyman s topic was "Some Aspects of Democracy." Mr. Hyman first listed the motives that led people to think of dictatorship. Amonc them were a sense of futilitythe present lack of suggestions leading to Improvement; the feeling that the present form of government was not appropriate to the tasks it was called upon to fulfil; the realization that enormous potential wealth was going to waste, a widespread fear of insecurity, and the desire of many small property - owners to support any movement that promised to smash Socialism. These were the Ideas, said Mr. Hyman, that led to thouunt of dictatorship. Opposed to them were the privileges that go with parliamentary government, all of which would be iort should the people accept a dictator - Even the tenure of the Crown, said the speaker, was based upon the sovereignty of the people and parliament. That would go. Parliamentary freedom of speech would be lost. Religious freedom, the liberty of the press, adult suffrage would all be lost. Control of the army would pass from the people to one self - appointed man. Th,it rreai rs:e'.arc ? .hr tv' i.abvas turpi:, would no lJi' - r bs In force. Each locality would lose control of Its own affairs.
