Mr. Smith left the position which he
now holds in order to go overseas. He
was captain of a company in the 143d
but on reaching England reverted to
lieutenant in order to get to the front
quickly. He fought with the 72d for
some time and later was loaned to the
British army for intelligence work.
He was wounded and gassed and invalided home shortly before the close
of the war.
Some of Capt. Smith's best newspaper work was done during the Russo-
Japanese war when he went to the front

STEWART, B.C., May 14, 1920
The public meeting arranged for the
distinguished visitor was a testimonial
to his popularity. By reason of the
tight schedule he is traveling on it was
necessary to hold the meeting in the
morning. As it was, a good-sized
crowd turned up but not a comparison
| to the size had the meeting been at
night. Mr. Pattulio's speech was very
much to the point and his review of
legislation of the past session wrs comprehensive and interesting.
Hon. T. D. Pattullo, ministerof lands,
who since the death of Frank Mobley
has been looking after the interests  of
Atlin  constituency  as  well  as   Prince
Rupert, made a d^cidely favorable impression by  his  speech.    His  remarks
were matter of  fact business and  conveyed the  feeling  that the   minister
lias this district's  interests at  heart.
While  everyone  wished    Mr.   Pattullo
could have remained longer, yet it was
recognized this is the  busy season with |
his department  and   he   has   a   lot of |
places to visit.    As it was, he covered
a  lot of ground    here,   inspected   the I
Government buildings, school and hos-
pital, not  to  mention  the  delapidated
wharf  approach   whose   gaping   holes
yawn for the unwary.
Mr. Pattullo met many frienhs here
and felt again the warmth of Yukon
greeting.    He met here men from   the
