The City Council should pass a
by-law to regulate the speed with
which autos and other vehicles
should be driven within the citv
limits, and if they have the power
they should Aso deal stringently

There are numerous incidents
where ���enous accidents have been
narrowly averted.
Ever since 0   H. Fee' tier fixed
up the lawn in front of the Riverside   hotel it   has  been a lounging
place for  dogs.     No amount  of
chasing could keep them off.    Yesterday   they   fixed   Up   a   piece of
meat attached to a pair of batteries
by a   long wire,  and whenever   a
purp took  bold of the  meat   the
juice was  turned on,   poor  doggie
let out  a howl   and ran, and gave
the  lawn  a wide  berth  the   uext
time h" passed.    Needless  ->' say
the experiment   was nitich enjoyed
by the onlookers,   and  the  lawn
was clean this morning.
A surprise partv was held at the
home of Mr. D. Bubar on Monday
evening to bid farewell to He, P.
Bubar. who has spent the winter
w'th her son. ' Whist an_ dancing
were indulged in until far into the
wee stna' hours. A pleasing part
of the program was the presentation
to Mrs. Bubar of an address and a
pretty souvenir spoon, which she
much appreciated and very feelingly
replied to. After singing "For
she's a jolly good fellow" and
"Auld Lang Syne," the party
broke up, everyone pronouncing
the event one of the best they had
spent in Cot'.rtenay, and wishing

We congratulate Mr. Hicks.

office of Police Magistrate and

that Mr. Hicks-Beach will in all

The estimates for the school   _eie
probably    Made befoie Courtenay
became incorporated as they include
salaries   fo1-   three    teachers.   01
course there will be   very   little   i!
any public  money  spent  oi o r
roads this year, although   there  is
j no  reason   why   the   government
should not pay for the  upkeep ol

The most welcome news that
Courtenay could have, came last
Saturday, win u it was definately
announced thai tlie Logging Camps
would commence operations this
week. The offices ot the company
were Immediately besiged witli applications for employment, and a
goodly number of the 300 men required were lined up here. Work
will commence on Monday morning
with that complement, and more
will be added as needed.
A by-law, entitled, A by-law to
regulate the standing committees
of the City Council, has been forced
through its seveial readings by the
''solid four," None of them seem
to understand what it means, not
even Dr Cromptou, who is credited with being able to see into the
millstone as far as anyone, said
''give it up" when askedthemeaning of certain clauses, Aid. Johnston, the father of the by-law, said
an eminent K. C. drewit, and gave
it as his opinion that the council,
had to pass the by-law willy-nilly.
This is a bright state of affairs. No
wonder the fame of our City Council has reached Nanaimo mid other
places- If these vaudeville performances keep up we will have
visitors from all over the province

Lord Kitchener is quoted as saying that he "didn't know vheu the
war would end, but he did know
that it would begin next May."
That's a grim observation enough
and it sounds like the old soldier
who is credited with making it.
Kitchener with 2,000,000 men and
Koumauia with 600,000, will be
ready then. Nobody can guess
how many Russia wiil have by that
time, but unquestionably more than
ever before. Perhaps Italy, with
a million and a half or thereabouts,
will have taken her place in the
ranks of the allies. On both sides
the winter will be .i'ore or less devoted to preparation for the titanic
a tivities of the spring campaign.���

|;> t is we see t lat upwards ol
When we lake inlo cousideratli n
the h ngth of time the party h
be in control of the province, aud
their extensive developments in
every department, the great number of men en;ployed from the heads
of the departments down to the
petty employees, and never a charge
of graft substantiated, it is a record
of which any party might leel proud
The high moral integrity, the
watchfulness, the keen penetration
that is necessary to accomplish this
speaks well of the heads of the government, The chiefs of this government have held with a firm hand
over all departments, tolerating
neither loose methods or slipshod
work, and demanding of all a strict
account of their stewartship.
While I am not 11 worshipper of the
Conservative shrine nor a devotee
of perpetual adoration before McBride aud Bowser, I cannot but in
all fairness give them the praise
they so justly deserve.
The land policy of the Government up to the present has been in
the best interests of the province.
Private individuals, by buying np
large tracts of laud, can ^et that
land occupied by settlers better
than the government could. Plow
much development has been made
in Coinox Valley this last twenty
years when the land was sold to
settlers? Has there been oue hundred acres cleared? How much is
there being cleared just now? Has
the class of people coming into the
province got the pioneering spirit of
those of forty years ago? Those
who have taken uj) land in the last
few years have been too familiar
with the derby ha*, the stiff collar,
and could not rrsist the lure of the
ball game and peanut bag. These
are the people who have tried to j
develop the province and pose as
settlers in the land. We have
seen samples around here of this
type. Why should the government not sell to the capitalist in
preference to this boob?
The government needed the
money and was not looking for the
job to be wet nurse to baby farmers. When the government sold to
the t-p c llator, the transaction was
completed and the money went into the treasury. If instead, they
sold to the derby hat and the kid
glove farmer settler there would be
a perpetual demand for good roads
so that they could walk back to the
cities agsin. Some of the Liberals
think it is as easy to get. the proper
people on the laud as it is to steal
a platform.

So lar as can be ascertained, there  do

to horses, he pointed out that the
life of a cavalry horse 111 time of
war was only about seven da\s,
and tlie life of an artillery horse
about one month. The Allies
were buying remounts on this continent, though Canada lias been
able to supply not more than 50 -
Dr. Tolmie was surprised that
sheep had not been more extensively bred iu Canada. There were
not more than 2,000,000 in the
whole countrv and a climate like
this was most ideal for them. Tlu
prospects for the hog market were
very good, as not more than sirch
per cent, of the nunfber sold iu
1014 were available this year.
Great attention should be given ti
theie feed, which should never contain trimmings of pork, for hog
cholera was given an opportunity
to spread in this manner. All new
hogs should be isolated.
The removal ot the duty by tlie
United States on cattle had opened
up large markets. While till���
would probably not result in large
sales of Canadian cattle in the State.-
it would have the effect of raising
prices paid to the producer through
the extra competition. The speakei
referred to the amount of produc.
imported iuto British Columbia
which amounted annually to mai.'\
millions of dollars. All this pro
duce might just'as well be raise
at home, The benefit to the farming community of these extra millions could easily be imagined.

this district. After considering wbat
objects would appeal generally to the inhabitants of the town and the district!
they have come to the conchisian that'
the Improvements of the Agricultural
Hall and grounds would be of benefit
to tbe district as a whole.
Now that there are   in   existence,   the
Creamery, the Condensory, and tbeT.i-e

natural corollary of these would be tacu
improvements    of     the      Agricultural

at the same time more of a credit lo the

community ou whom the  prosperity of
die town and district so largely depends.
I am instructed to s��y that there  will

invite those who need work to register
their names.
The Committee, for reasons that
brought it into exis_nce,!s in the rather
exceptional position of not being debarred from discrimniinating in its recommendations between those more or less
urgently in need of work. It is undei
no obligation, working as itdnes without
rcnuneratiou, to make recommendations
in order of application.
With regaril to the amount now to bi
expended, the committee venture to hope
that those who require work will take
this opportunity of assisting themselves
and of improving tlie town and district
