"BLOW AT CORPORATIONS Danger of Conflict With Prov inces Avoided by Accept ance of Voting Lists. CALIFORNIA OIL RAISE IS DEFENDED Necessary to Fix a Differen tial, Says Standard. By a Stoff Corrttponient of Tne Sex in Nt.w Yornc IlKBAtD. Copvrloht. 1020, by The Scn ami New Yonic Hr.tui.n. Ottawa, March 21. The reality of the coalition prlnclplo In this Govern ment of Liberals and Conservatives Is amply proved by the Federal elections bill Introduced by Hon. Hugh Guthrie, which now stands on the order paper for second rending. Formal passage of the bill will repeal all previous acts re lating to elections, Including tho famous war time elections act, under which nil alien enomy subjects hud their naturali zation set iisldo. The bill makes no dis tinction; tho main requirement 1,4 that the voter be "a British subject by birth or naturalization. Under th? act of naturalization passed last year, which by arrangement Is unl- lorm throughout the British Common wealth States, aliens whise origin was of tho former German or Austro-IIun- gary areas must be resident for ten suc- c.slvo years In Canada or the Umpire in order to obtain naturalization. The effect of this new election law will be to open the way for thousands of Ger mans, Atistrians and Hungarians to re new their allegiance In a more compre hensive manner as subjects of tho King. Kxceptlon Is made for friendly races of the former defunct empires like the Ro hemlans, Poles and Jugo-Slavs to be come subjects on live years residence. i niow nt Trnata In Politics. Tho bill strikes a blow at corporation nfluence In the field of politics by mak ing It unlawful for any corporation to contribute to a party or political fund, ex-opt in the ca.e of a corporation In corporated for political purposes alone. The object Is to lessen the power of the campaign fund. The candidate In any district must glva written consent to nomination and deposit $200 with the returning oSlcor, which Is returned to the candidate If elected, or if he polls one-half the number of votes given to the candidate elected. The- olllclal agent of the candidate must make public nil records of funds received and spent. The usual provisions are made for recount of vot?a and appeal to the courts. The evi dence of husbnnd and wife may be taken in any election trial, but the evidence to given mny not be used against either one In a criminal suit. Every employer Is required to ar range that his cmplovces shnll have two hours In which to vote, other than the noon hour, for which time their pay will not be reduced or docked. All railway men may have the right and privilege of voting In advance of the election, at places to be arranged by the returnlrg officers. The Parliamentary Counsel of tho House of Commons Is appointed chief electoral officer with permanent enure or ofllce, removable onlv for cause, the same as Judges of the su perior courts. Any Urltlsh subject, male or female. who Is 21 ears of age, may be a can didate at any Dominion election. Provincial ltceUtrntlon Accepted. All danger of contention over the bill was removed by provision to use the provincial lists, where they were pre- lared within ono year immediately pre ceding issue of the writ for election This recognizes the Liberal principle of the right of provinces to control over lists, but does not go as far as State rights In the American Federal elec tions. But the principle finds further expression In the recognition of provin cial right to disqualify persons In re spect to race, as In the case of British Columbia, where Japanese and Chinese, Fast Indians and Orientals generally are debarred. An Important feature of the new law Is that for enumeration of voters before an election. Any provincial lists of votcra, even six months after complja tlon, will call for revision. By enumera tion, nil persons entitled to vote mny bo added to tho lists right up to voting day, and may even by declaration at the placo of voting, be put on the list. Provision for like registration of voters is made for cities and big towns aftor the American plan. This registration, and enumeration In the rural districts, overcomes any difficulty regarding Quebec, where, under provincial law, women have not tho right to vote. For the federal elections names of all women desiring to vote may be added to the WUhesbarre Victim Siiter of Father Walsh of Fordham. Special to Tui Huh and Utvr Yois IIiiuid.

President Bpantih-A.mericaj Fruit Co, Specially written for Tub Sun and New York Herald, Fruit growing as a commercial Industry In Porto Wco dates from about tho year 1900, shortly after the American occupa tlon. Among tho Important fruits from a commercial standpoint are grapefruit, tnmces. nlneaDnles and cocoanuts. Tho banana, guava, mango, mamcy, nlllgntor pear and numerous other native varlotlOB much prized by the natives aro oemum exported, The grapefruit, orange and pineapple Industries are firmly established and have had a very rapid Increase In devel opment, an Bhown from the total ship ments of these fruits from 1101,467 for 1901 to 11.968,081 for 1919. Tho production of grapefruit and oranges may bo treated aj one, for the came methods ure purnup.l in raising and marketing them. The oung seed lings In tho nursory arc budded to the urlcty d&slred, where they remain for upward of eighteen months beforo l.nnunl'intlnir til the CrOVC. Ill tllO srove they are set out according to dlf fornnt niavs of irrounlnr. which give be tween seventy and eighty ticca to tho acre. These trees will often bear when three years old, but for commercial pur poses Ave years Is the accepted period of development, at whtch time an nver ige of one box per tree Is exacted. This Meld Increased annually up to ten years :f age, when a fair average Is eight ?oxcs a tree. Some troes nave prouueuu pinhteen boxes. Prom the tlmo of planting constant c.ire Is necessary, as the trees arc sud Ject to many citrus diseases, and fre quent sprayings are reQUlred. In thte uprk the growers have at their com mand experts of the experimental sta tion of tho United States Department of Aurieiiltnre. located at .uayacucz, uu an) always ready to help solve the many problems which confront them. Pineapple plants havn a short stem covered with leavee, arranged In whorlM. and supported by roots, which are directly attached. Their leaves are about two Inches wldr, tapering up to three feet In length, with the margins In most varieties covered with spines. When the plant attains a certain age tho last formed leaves, which are the heart of the plant, beeomo very ted, and the flower head appears on a stalk which In reality Is the elongation of the main plant stem. This (lower head develops into the pineapple, which Is made up of an aggregate of many small Individual fruits. People not familiar with this growth are often heard to nslt how the pineapple trees look and if they are dif ferent from our sippler. From the root of the parent plant prows the i-lioot. called "rnttoon, while above ground and below the fruit grows what i called a sucker, either of which produces the next year's plant for fruit ing. Around the base of the fruit grow hie young slips, which after the frutt is picked are left to mature, and are used later fbr planting the new pineapple beds. From a horticultural standpoint the growing of plnenpples 1 a comparatively simple matter, for unlike the grapefruit nmi orance they do not require spraying. The land is first prepared by ploughing and harrowing. The slips are then nlanicd In rows on one of n number of different plans, which maltc from 10.000 to 17.000 plants per acre. Continuous cultivation anu application of fertilizer are necessary. Three crops are taken from ono planting at approxi mate intervals of twelve1 months between each crop, the time from original plant ing until the first crop Is picked being about eighteen months. The, estimated y:elds of the three crops are respectively 90 per cent.. 8 per cent, ana iu per ceni. of tho number of plants. Usually after the third year the plants have become so out of alignment in tho rows that they have more or less grown together and it is Impossible to give them tho proper cultivation, tnus necessitating the re planting, which always takes place on a new piece of ground. Formerly after the three year period of pineapples it waa thought sufficient to plant beans or some other leguminous crop on the land for a year in order to correct the acidity caused by the pineap ple. This In many cases was unsatisfac tory and the following planting would In many cases be stunted. It has now been found that raising sugar cane as a crop following pineapples will correct this soil condition and at the same time produce the proper condition on which tho sugar- cane will flourish, Where this was tried during tho past year some of the finest t-ugarcane crown on the Island was pro duced. Porto HIco has many economic advan tnges over Its competitors, Florida, Call fornla and tho West Indies, and although not advertised to tho samo extent, Its climate, rainfall and soil conditions pro duce fruit noted for Its wonderful Julcl ncss. Much of the fruit that formerly went to waste is now being used in by-products, such as marmalades and Jellies, as wen as Deverages, which have taken re markably well.
