Col. Malcolm Kincaid-Smith,
British parliamentarian, now travelling in Canada, endorsed the views
of a large number of Canadians,
when he said that "Spoon fed
immigration from Britain is spoiling
settlers and ruining Canada's opportunity to attract independent
men who may come to this country
at their own expense." Spoon fed
immigrants will never make as
good citizens as those who are
capable of paying their way, and
ready and willing to take any kind
of an occupation until they are
familiar with Canadian methods.
During the past ten years 400,000
British immigrants have entered the
United States. They are welcomed by the government in order
that the Anglo-Saxon stock may
be increased. It is something that
our neighbors have neglected for a
number of years, but are remedying as fast as possible. If Canada
is to encourage immigration from
Britain, it should specialize on the
boys and girls. Encourage them
to come here when they are young,
and their minds receptive to new
ideas. Immigration from Great
Britain should be encouraged by
all means, but not by spoon fed
methods. Such people expect too
much, and when it is not forthcoming, return home full of abuse
for Canada, which has a harmful
effect, in discouraging others of a
more independent nature.
Vancouver, Prince Rupert and
Stewart are again indulging in that
popular winter pastime of placing
before the public their advantages
as the terminus of the Peace River
railroad. Public bodies were recently formed in the two former
towns for the purpose of giving
publicity to their right as the
proper place for the new terminus.
It is possible that none of the above
mentioned towns will become the
shipping port for Peace River
products, but that a new port will
be located. Peace among these
three towns as to who shall handle
the products ot this northern land
Canadian Institute   Of
Mining To Hold
The programme of the General
Meeting of the British Columbia
Division of the Canadian Institute
of Mining and Metallurgy to be held
iu Vancouver on November 27th.,
28th. and 29th. has been designed
with the object of presenting a comprehensive review of the important
developments and progress of the
mining industry of the Province
during the current year. To that
end the generous co-operation of
the Provincial Department of Mines
has been enlisted. A full technical
session, of which there will be six,
will be allocated to each Mineral
Survey District, with its Resident'
Engineer as Chairman, who will, in
each case, give a general survey of
conditions in his district preliminary
to the presentation of papers by
members ' dealing in detail with
some point of outstanding interest
either with respect to new discoveries or to improvements or innovations in mining and metallurgical
The Meeting will be opened
formally on the morning of Wednesday, November 27th. by the
Divisional Chairman, Mr. J. D.
Galloway, Provincial Mineralogist,
who will present a statistical review
of mining during the year.
The Annual Dinner will take
place on the evening of Friday,
November 29th., with the Premier,
the Minister of Mines and the Hon.
R. L. Maitlarid as guests of honor.
The dinner will be followed by an
informal dance.

new property has an exceptionally

From 1906 to 1908 he represented the riding of Greenwood in the

Wheat Tie-up Effects Railway Earnings
The offset on Canadian railway
traffic of the tie-up in the movement of wheat out of the country,
due to the deadlock between sellers
and buyers regarding prices, was
very pronounced in October, when
gross earnings of C. P. R. were
down $6,863,000, or 25.5 per cent,
and those of the C. N. R. were
down $6,175,316, or 20.4 per cent.
These declines will have a serious
effect on net results for the period.

Ore to Smelter
Stewart News
The Crawford Transfer Co. this
week delivered to the dock the first
ten tons of ore from the Blackhill
property, which will be shipped to
the smelter at Selby, California,
via the Coastwise Steamship and

down and accumulated as horses
went up to the mine with supplies,
being loaded both ways.
It is stated that this ore, on
sampling, ran well over $100 per
ton  in  gold, silver, lead and zinc.
During construction of winter
camps, whioh is progressing very
rapidly, the mining crew has been
cut to a minimum in No. 3 tunnel,
which is being driven alongside

Will Star In Tonight's
"Smiling Irish Eyes" Is a Picture
You Should Not Miss
Colleen Moore's new residence
will include a pleasant remindei of
her lirst dialogue picture, "Smiling
Irish Eyes," which comes to the
Beach Theatre, tonight, Nov. 23rd.
Much of the entertaining action
of this First National Special takes
place beside an old stone "Wishing
Well," which, according to a tradition explained in the story,
possesses the magic power to grant
the wishes of deserving persons.
Upon tlie completion of "Smiling
Irish Eyes." Miss Moore made arrangements to have the stone well
transported to the garden of her
new home, where it occupies an
attractive corner of the three'acre
estate, and is quite in keeping with
the rustic motif of the landscaping.
Although rural Ireland provides
the background for most of "Smiling Irish Eyes," an unusual variety
of settings includes Times Square
in New York, the back-stage of a
large theatre, and a series of humorous episodes at au Irish fair. Miss
Moore is afforded excellent support
by a large cast, in which James
Hall, Claude Cillingwater, Aggie
Herring, Robert Homans, Robert
Emmett O'Connor, Betty Francis
co, Tom O'Brien and Julanne
Johnston play important roles.
"Smiling Irish Eyes" was produced for First National Pictures
by John McCormick, William A.

and Japan was a good thing for the
British Empire as well as for Canada, Premier Mackenzie King declared in addressing the Board of
Trade at Vancouver recently. Misunderstandings between a foreign

Empire must eventually affect all
other parts. The placing of Canada's and the Empire's position in
its true light before other peoples
would tend to prevent misunderstandings. It demonstrated to the

May Have Free Trade With
