Liberals Gain Another Victory in

A epeial from Vancouver says:
Vancouver, B. C. Dec. 14—Tho first I
| election in    Saskatchewan    yesterday
closes one of the most bitter political'
campaigns in  the  history  of   Canadn.
Both parties went into the campaign
; with a determination to win.   No effort
,  for success has been spared by either.
, From the returns available at this date |
I it seems probable that the government!
; will have thirteen seats which will give.!
them a majority of one.
! Mr. Haultain and the Provincial
Rights party have put up a stiff fight,
and tisa result the elections have been
very close. Hundreds of ballots, however, have been spoiled, so that  protests

Council Dotftft.
' Special meetings were held by
j the municipal council both Monday and Tuesday evenings. The
Immediate cause for the specials
was to give the Electric. Light ami
Agricultural Hull bylaws the readings required before the preliminary steps for presenting them to
the vote of the people, which it is
proposed to do at the general election for reeve and councillors. No
other business of speciul iui'tort-
ance was transacted at either meeting. A communication was read
from the Canadian Westinghouse
Co., offering the municipality the
sale of an electric light plant,
Isaac Heard protested against the
condition of a culvert near his
place which caused damage to his
property, .Mayor Stevens, of
Kaililoopu.. president of the union
of B. C municipalities, wrote the
council, asking tbr-a list, if any. of
the grievances this council desired
to have brought to theattentionjof

Friday, December 15. 1905.
Metkodiit Cknrdi Hold. SkcckM
The anniversary services last
Sunday and Monday proved among
the most successful fuuctioiiH yet
held iu connection with the Methodist church here.
Sunday's services consisted of
sermons both morning and evening
by Rev C. H. M. Sutherland, of
Revelstoke. Mr. Sutherland was
here about a year ago. so was not
a total stranger to an Armstrong
audience, though perhaps the greater portion of the audience listened
to the speaker for the first time.
The sermons were especially in.
terestiug and instructive, tho
speaker bavins; an eloquent delivery, and the tost of his ills-
courses containing many thoughtful points (or the consideration of
his hearers. The first sermon of
the day was on the subject of
"What We as Ohrlstains Need
Most," and was listened to by an
audience that taxed the seating
capacity of the church to its fullest
extent. In tho evening the church
failed to accomodate the Immense
crowd that gathered to the service,
and those who were fortuuiite
enough to be present enjoyed another address none the loss in.
strnctive than that of the morning
Monday evening was occupied
with the social feature of the yearly service, and the evening was
meet pleasantly spent by the
large crowd present.
The first number on the literary
program arranged for the evening
was a duet by Mrs. W. Harry and
Rev. A. N. Miller, which was most
heartily enjoyed, since both parties
enjoy a flattering reputation in the
musical line among the congrega
tion of the church.
No Armstrong entertainment
would now be complete without
the appearance on the platform of
Johnny Absoii, and he was brought
on in the second number in a solo.
In addition to the piano accompaniment Mrs. G. Moberly accompanied with the violin, which made the
number of special interest, and the
hearty encore accorded told the appreciation of the audience of the
rendition of the number.
Rev. Sutherland next entertained
the audience with a brief bnt moat
interesting address, after which
Rev and Mrs. .1. H. Wright, of
Vernon, sang a duet. Though this
was the first appearance of Mr. and
Mrs. Wright before an Armstrong
audience it is safe to state that
they will be gladly welcomed in a
similar capacity on any future
occasion. Despite continued applause, Mr. Wright's modesty
disallowed of their response to a
hearty encore.
"An Address to an Egyptian
Mummy" by Mrs, A. N. Miller was
the next number and was listened
to with rapt attention by the large
audience.. Rev. Sutherland impersonated the imaginary mummy
and proved himself a veritable Mr.
Caudle in the quiet manner in
which he endured snoh a lashing
lecture fram the tongue of a woman.
The rendition of the solo, "The
Rivulet," by Mrs. Geo. Bell, of
Enderby, established for that lady
a flattering reputation as a soloist.
Mrs. Bell has a beautiful voice,
which by careful culture, has given
her exceptional abilities as a singer. - In response to a hearty and
prolonged encore she rendered in
an equally acceptable manner the
"Holy City."
Rev. Campbell wus called upon
for a few remarks and responded
iu a brief bnt acceptable address.
The Armstrong choir next rendered one of their popular glees,
which receive.) a well merited en-
encore. The choir was composed
of Mrs. W. Harry, Mrs. Violet
Dickie, the Misses Nellie Francis.
Maud Murray and Sarah Mathcson
and Messrs. Asson, Fraser. D.
Wright and Elmer Harry.
A recitation ably rendered by
Miss Marshall was followed by a
solo by Mrs J. H. Wright, after
which Mrs. G. Moberly rendered.
with her well-known ability, a
violin solo, also responding to an
enthusiastic encore.
Another solo by Mrs. Bell
brought the literary program to a
Miss McDonald presided at the
piano in accomplished manner
during the evening.
Refreshments were next served
and nil present furnished with
an abundance of the good things
provided by the ladies of the
Great credit must be given to
the committee in charge for the
very successful carrying ont of
this the thirteenth anniversary services of the church. The committee in charge of the refreshment
feature of the entertainment were
the Mesdnnies 0. H. Hardy. T.
Ball, E. Wilson, S. Reid and L.
Main, and to them perhaps belongs
special credit for the successful
manner in whioh the gathering
was cared for in this respect.
From a financial point of view
we are informed that the services
were satisfactory to those directly
interested and that a considerable
amount was raised for the application on the church debt.

[gtnguts iv the high school question,
'nni'l particularly in the mallei- of
starting n one-horse high school
and saddling the cost largely on the
rural community, who would derive' comparatively little benefit
from it. Mr. Wright says it will
perhaps surprise me to know that
the Armstrong school district will
pay one quarter of the assessment
of the whole six districts, leaving
three-cpiarters to be contributed by
the other live. It does not surprise
me ut nil to know that, but I also
know that the number of pupils
attending the Armstrong school is
a hundred and thirty-two, each and
every one of whom, if they desire
to avail themselves of a high
school education, stand to benefit
by a high school being located at
Armstrong, while tho number of
pupils attending all the Hvo rural
schools will probably be from
sixty to seventy, none of whom
stand to benefit very much from
It being located there, for reasons
that I stated in a previous hitter.
Mr. Wright or anyone else can see
at a glance that the rural districts
are being invited to contribute
three-fourths of the cost of a high
school, while the whole live county
schools could muster up about
half, or less than half, of the number of pupils who could attend,
even though they all determined
to have ii high school education,
Mr. Wright may slill think there
is not UlllC'h   saddling  about   that,
bnt I  imagine if the rural i i-
muuity permit u burden like thai
to be imposed on them, tlu-y will
feel like kicking themselves all Unrest of their lives, und the time will
surely come when they will "buok"
In order to get it off, and it may
not be very easily done,
In reply to what Mr, Wright
has to say about the co.-isolidat 1
school. I contend that they would
not be distinctly different schools
us he claims, but would be one
from kindergarten to linish, nnd
with facilities provided for all to
get there {the want of which is
the greal objection to the present
antiquated high school system: (ii
syslein Hint sin-i-lil not be given a]
fool hold iiert'. for the I'LilStfU that,
it is almost sure to put the day
farther off when we are to get a
Remember 1 don't say thnt the
consolidated school is the best in
my estimation, what I would prefer would be to see every public
school permitted to do the work
now done by the high school, ns is
doing done so satisfactory iu Armstrong at the present time, nnd is
thus a practical exemplification of
the method, and next I would
choose Iin- consolidated school,
with the present high school
system nowhere. I would like to
say n good ileiil more, but will re-
fruin myself, us I presume I have
trespassed sufficiently on your
space already.
