Things do not evolve upwards and come to a sudden
stop. History writes the story
of the past, so that we may read
and see that the story of man
has been one of progress. But
for the future it is only hope,

strongly grounded cannot be
shaken. And Eastertide serves
to implant still more strongly
in us the hope we all cherish

Beans and dishtfects
Originally of heathen origin,
the Easier festival has come
to be observed by Christendom
with a fervor second only to
that with which Christmas is
observed. Instituted in the first
place by some of the peoples of
western Europe as a season
when special homage should be
done to one of the gods in their
system of polytheism, the season was later put into the early Christian calendar as marking year by year thc anniversary of the Passion of the founder of Christianity.
It is scarcely Strang, considering the significance which
the Eastertide has in the mind
of the person of an ordinary
degree of religious development, that its message should
be one of hope and awakening.
It comes at the springtime of
the year, when the earth is
throwing off the thraldom of
the winter; nature is budding
out once more; everything is
making a new start, or taking
on a new lease of life. All this
tends to drive home more forcibly the truth of immortality,
the great theme of the Eastertide, and the hope which lies
latent in all humanity, whether they care to admit it or not
Science says there is no such
thing as utter annihilation in
the scheme of things in this
world. Nothing is ever wiped
out completely, whether by na-
tural processes or outBlde in
fluences. Man being the crowning work of nature, it is not
likely, nor reasonable, that for
It alone should be reserved a
fate of utter annihilation after
passing hence. There would
be little inducement to hold to
any standard of morality or
ethical conduct if there was
not working in the human
breast, whether its voice Ib recognized or uot, a spark of hope
for the future. What could
man-made laws do ti restrain,
if after all, it was not felt that
bick of them is ano'.ner fabric
of law, ubove It and beyond
it? Science, history, philosO'
phy, and all the studies of the
learned show that Ihere has
been evolution in thc progress
of man, whether it is j'Wt along the lines of Darwinism or
not. Man has made progress
in his standard of life. What is
there to indicate then that this
particular sphere is to see the

'President Canadian Pacific Railway
| One of the most interesting features in Canadian development during recent years has been tba
growth of the shipping facilities
for Canada's overseas trads and
traffic. An indication of this can be
seen in this year's returns from the
port of Montreal, which show that
up to tbe close of navigation 9S0
vessels had docked there, as compared with 654 for the previous season. The shipments included mora
than 140,000,080 bushels of grain,
an increase of nearly 100 per cent,
over the previous highest figure,
that of 1914.
The prosperity of a country depends upon the ease with whlcb Its
produce can be marketed, and in the
case of Canada, which exists so
largely on overseas markets, the
condition* of trade are undoubtedly
governed by the facilities for transport The development of shipping
sufficient to insure the speedy conveyance of passengers and freight is
therefore of vital importance, and
accounts for the steady increas. in

Can Ships Pay Their Way?
The phenomenal growth of Canada's Mercantile Marine during the
last few years has been taken as
indicative of the country's progress.
There is danger, however, in a too
rapid growth if the increase .as not
been directed along commercially
profitable lines. What we have to
consider is whether the new tonnage
is justified by the country's production, whether the ships are suited to
the kind of traffic available, and
whether they are the kind of ships
that are likely to pay their way.
If those factors are not taken into
consideration, we may find tbat a
portion at least of Canada's large
mercantile fleet is the kind of asset

A statistical comparison of Canada's mercantile marine over a
period of years is apt to be misleading unless we thoroughly under»tf:d
what these statistics represent. In
a letter written in 1851, addressed
to Earl Grey, then Colonial Secretary in Britain, Joseph Howe, the
distinguished Nova Scotian statesman, remarked:
"The   best   criterion   of   the
comparative       civilization       of
countries may be found in the
growth   of   commerce   and   the
increase of h mercantile marine.
"   Tried   by   this   test,   ths   North
American   Provinces  will  stand

i   tion of the Queen's Dominions.

great war was reached in 1878, with
■ total of 1,383,016 tona net These,
(however, were still mostly wooden
palling vessels, and under tbe competition of steamers and trade depression, the  tonnage  had  dropped
out seeing their home port again till
they were practically used up. The
steel steamer of today is built for
a longer life, and tonnage involves a
greater initial coet.
High Cost of New Ships.
In the case of the mercantile fleet
built for the lata Canadian Govern*
ment, the cost was high, and represents a hectic element in eur maritime progress. It is indeed a mystery
why construction of so many of
these ships was undertaken after
the armistice. Contracts were given
by the Csnadian Government toj
Canadian shipbuilders for cargo1
ships in January, 1919, on a price
basis of $200 a ton, at a time when
the Canadian Pacific was being offered by the British Ministry of
Shipping any number of cargo ships,
well adapted to the requirements
of Canadian trade, at $100 a ton,
and actually purchased two at that
price. Now the experience of Canadian shin-owners has been that
cargo ship* are a speculative invest,
ment unless they are operated as
supplementary to a regular service
of combined passenger and cargo
steamers, when they may come in
useful aa an adjunct to regular
liners when more business than
usual is offered.
The Government cargo steamers,,
contracted for after thc armistice,
seem to have been built without any
particular trade in view and without
tbs support of a passenger service.
Unless their initial high cost is written down, they must br run at a
loss, except during periods of high
iby 1902 to less than 50 per cent, of
-What total, er, to be exact, 652,613
It was not till 1900 that ateel vessels began to appear to any extent
ten Canadian register, and.not till
1918 were steel vessels in the majority, the figures being 4,366
{steamers out of a total of 8,568 vessels. On October 31, 1921, there
were 8,322 vessels- on Canadian
register, of which 4,465 are steamers, the gross tonnage of these 8,-
822 vessels, being 1,750,570 tona.
Evolntlon In Ships.
' The large tonnage of British
North American ships in the middle
of the nineteenth century is, however, deceptive, unless one analyses
the character of the trade in which
ithe vessels engaged. The Nova
Scotian ships, in particular, were
■built ef soft wood, iron and copper
fastened, and, unlike the more substantial and more expensive British*
,built ships, were not always destined for a long life. They carried pos-
•JMya earn of Nova Scotia lumber
U England, then reloaded with a
•am ter South Aaaerlea and tramp-
freights, and high freights are certainly not welcomed by any aountry
'ooking for export business.
ievcrnntent Ships Tramping
Experience has shown that for
Canadian trade the ideal ship for
Atlantic business is the steamer
which will combine passenger and
freight business in a certain proportion. This accounts for the construction of the new one-cabin type
t*f ship such as the Montcalm, with
a groes register of 16,000 tons, a
.peed of 16 knots, a capacity of
1,510 passengers and five or six
thcusand tons of freight. Of the
thfrty-five steamers plying for the
Csnadian Pacific on ocean service,
only nine sre cargo ships. Although
some of these Government steamers
are run on regular lines, where there
is some prospect of a cargo both
ways, a large percentage of the fleet
has been forced into tramping without any particular benefit to Canadian commerce, although the tonnage may swell tbe Canadian
Paaaenger Traffic Awaiting.
The increase in tonnage credited
te the steamship companies carrying en regular service, particularly
where the liners are paasenger
steamers, Is in another category.
The natural development of Cana
dian shipping under present conditions is undoubtedly in the field of
passenger traffic, rather than cargo
vessels. In the first place, Canada's
crying need is for more population,
particularly of the farming classes,
and over in Great Britain and
Kurope there are hundreds of thousands of good settlers eager to come
to this continent if only the doors
are not shut in their faces. In the
second place, owing to Canada's
geographical position, the St. Lawrence route In summer and the port
if Vancouver aU the year round
aan b a faverahls gisiriia to ettemtt
large passenger traffic to and from
the United States, with its hundred
million population, as well as to and
from Canada itself. The St. Lawrence route enables Atlantic steamers of reasonable speed to cross
the Atlantic with only four days
open sea, while the comparatively
short distance between Vancouver
and Yokohoma has given the Canadian liners a substantial time handicap over their competitors using the
longer southern routes.
Growth af CP.R. Shipping.
The total tonnage of ocean-going
lake and river steamers which will
carry the Canadian Pacific house-
flag in 1922 will be only a few tons
short of 500,000, or nearly .line
times as large as the great Spanish
Armada. This is in spite of the
fact that the Canadian Pacific lost
tonnage by enemy acticn during the
recent war to the extent of 101,081
The growth of the steamship Interests of the Canadian Pacific is
significant of the contribution made
by that company toward the progress of Canada. Starting with a
fleet on the Pacific, the railway entered the Atlantic trade by purchasing 15 vessels from the Elder-Dempster Line in 1902 for $7,500,000. The
change of conditions in steamship
business is illustrated by the fae;
that this sum today represents the
cost of one single new vessel destined for the Pacific trade, the Empress
of Canada. In 1906 the Empress of
Britain and Empress of Ireland were
added to the Atlantic fleet. In 1913
the Pacific service was strengthened
hy the Empress of Russia and Em*
press of Asia. Two steamers of the
one "Cabin" type, the Metagama
and the Missanabie, were added In
1914, followed in 1917 and 1918 by
the Melita and the Minnedosa, but
the chief increase was due to the
taking over of the Allan Une fleet
of 18 steamships. The year 1922
will see tbe addition of several fine
passenger steamers for both Atlantic and Pacific service, the Empress of Scotland (24,584 tons),
which will be the largest vessel in
the Canadian trade; the Empress ef
Canada (22,000 tons), built for the
Pacific service; the Empress ef Australia (19.300 tons); the Empress
ef India (17,052 tona), and the
Montcalm, Montclare, and Montrose, each of 16,000 tone.
Heavy Expansion in Year.
This represents an addition of
130,000 tons to the Canadian Pacific
fleet in a single year, and should
convince the most pessimistic th t
the directors of one Canadian enterprise, at any rate, are looking forward to increased trade and traffic.
That traffic, however, can only
continue to make progress If Canada
pursues a broad-minded Immigration
policy and does not shut her doors
against tbe settlers anxious to come
from overcrowded Europe, and
work upon her vacant lands and undeveloped resources. The Imperial
Government during the past year
has spent a hundred million dollars
in doles to unemployed, a large percentage of whom were recently living on the land. At the same time
less than ten per cent, of our available agricultural land in the West is
under cultivation. Surely there is
an opportunity for shipping here to
transfer the worker to a place where
he can work and thus benefit both
the Old Country and the new.

The Minister of Finance expressed

Few regions can boHat of so great
a variety and so large a number of
climatic, and heukh resorts as the
bounty of Nature and the activity
of man have created in the Venezia
Giuiia. Before the war some of these
resorts were flourishing and popular.
There assembled In crowds the flower of the aristocracy of the nations;
the rich and elegant, not only of
Kurope, but from more distant countries beyond the ocean. They went
there as to a charming refuge from
freezing climates, or as to an oasis
where they could rest in physical
repose and intellectual enjoyment
from the worry and stress of the
daily fight for life.
The fury of the war-storm and the
innumerable dissensions of the long
conflagration have naturally had a
discouraging effect on the movements of visitors, and for several
years there has been only a dreary
desert where formerly life had
triumphed in Its most fascinating expressions of joy, beauty and richness.
A journey in this beautiful country, now in full process of rebirth
and development, offers the greatest
artistic attractions and rich and

Take Abbazia for example. Abbazia, on the eastern coast of Istria,
in the embrace of the Quarnaro,
alopes graciously at the foot of
Monte Maggie re (MOD m.), which
protects it from cold winds. The
vegetation there is superb, almost
tropical, deep and vast laurel woods
innumerable gardens, flowers in pro
fusion. The climate is excellent, the
beach delightful, the sea of a fascinating blue; which with its charming walks have given world-wide
fume to Abbazia.
Before the war every year 50,000
visitors passed through Abbazia during all seasons, since thnt fortunate
district enjoys nn eternal spring.
Many illnesses are cured there. The
host results, however, are obtained
en a winter climatic station in the

or of the nervous and circulatory
systems, the lungs, or of any constitutional weakness. It is highly bene
ficial to weak or sickly babies,
i An entirely different type of bath-

of Brioni, near Pola.
Brioni, until a few decades ago,
was desolate, and now, thanks to

The general feeling among many
road enthusiasts here at present is
that there is a decided change in the
attitude of the department of public
works, at Victoria, respecting the
route of the trans-provincial highway.
It 1B stated that Hon. Dr. Sutherland,
who halls from Revelstoke, is an advocate of the Fraser canyon route.
Such un opinion on his part might be
tlne to the fact tbat the main line
country I naturally opposed to the
trans-provincial route of the south.
Prior to the resignation of Hon. Dr.
King, the government had declared

a change in the situation.—Pentlcton
OTTAWA — Political circles are
agog over what la described as a severe snub administered by tbe Prime
Minister to his colleague, Hon. Jas
Murdock, minister of labor. The trouble arose over the Nova Scotia coal
miners' dispute, In which Hon. Hr.
Murdock bag taken a somewhat pugnacious attitude.
One morning there appeared in the
Ottawa papers a statement from Mr.
Murdock reading as follows:
"I have not reconstituted the allien
board and I shall not do so unless
the 'strike on the Job' policy is aban
dotted and repudiated-"
Later ln the day the Prime Minister
informed the House that the reconvening of the board was unconditional
und would be carried out irrespective
of the stand taken by the men's leader, and to which Mr. Murdock took
strong exception.
Last week when tlie House spent a
whole day wrangling over the Labor
department estimates, Mr. Murdock
received a note from the Prime Minister which he was observed to read
and then tear up in a savage manner.
These two IncidentH are being coupled by corridor gossips who predict
It will not be long until Hon. VV. h.
Mackenzie King is looking for a new
minister of labor.
Hon. Chas. Stewart, minister of the
interior, has aligned himself alongside the advocates for the completion
of the Banff-Winder mere road this
coming summer, according to a
letter received by the secretary of tha
Calgary Board of Trade last week.
Hon. Mr. Stewart states that the general appropriation allotted for Dominion parks work, during 1922, are
the same as a year ago. Though he
has not been able to make a detailed
analysis of the appropriations, he
offers the opinion that the only way
tn which to secure sufficient funds
to complete this important loop of
"The Blue Trail,'! Is through the supplementary estimates which will be
Introduced later In the session.
The minister of the Interior haa
pledged his support toward securing
additional funds with which to complete this all-important link.

at one time I waa reluctant to admit

made the men who did fight hold a
special place and a sacred one ln my
thoughts and feelings.
"This Is Vlmy day. With tens ot
thousands ol other fathers we waited
for the report of this day, six years
ago, partly because we saw th. glory
ot Canada was to be written large
by the deeds of her sons and partly
tor other reasons more parsonul to
her—the report of the casualties of
her sons. 1 remember the report
which was brought to me hy Canon
Scott, who ta now lying dangerously
sick In Quebec, that he wuB performing the duties of chuplaln in thc
front line as It was his duty then ar,
a man to he their moral leader. One
day ho came to them and said, 'You
are going over the top today and you
are going to mako the nninc or Canada larger and bigger. You will be
able to do more tomorrow to mako
Canada's namo great thnn I have In
my fifty years.' And ihey replied,
'We will do It, wc will do It.'
"Upon the anniversary of this duy
you have the great task, the valuable
task of unveiling the monument
which your town hus erected to the

do anything more to prepare our
minds fo this than to remind you ot
the spirit ot the boys when eight
years ago today the awful report went
abroad that Britain was at war? Again men of Britain responded aud
there never was a greater day than
the day when she sent forth the call
to stand against what seemed almost

lt was the voice of Canada, 1 had been
met at the railway station at Vancouver hy my sons. I had two fully
grown sons and one who wanted to
believe himself really fully grown
and one of them, a lad ln the early
twenties, and the eldest, after the
usual salutations, said, 'Well father,
you think we should not go,' and the
other was listening and my answer
waa this: 'BoyB, we are on a bigger
enterprise than most of the nations
know, and there Is not a man in Canada who dares to place himself as a
man who wll] not see this enterprise
to a successful conclusion,' and I saw
by the look on their faces that they
said, 'Well, everything Is all right
now, anyway,' and 1 believe that was
the question most of the boys had to
contend with, and from the Atlantic
to the Pacific this same question was
asked of all those who had any responsibility, and then we know the re-
suit. Not tor party Interest nor for
ourselves, should we criticize or slan
der Canada In any way, of the efforts
she made ln connection with the war.
"So much for the four years except
this: Our men wrote the name of
Canada great upon the annals of time,
but in doing so they greatly impoverished the most noble ot 'our gallant
men. I believe the number of leaders ln Canada was exceedingly small
aud I sometimes think that they had
a very hard part to play. Out of the
half million men, you know how fifty
thousand ot the noblest came to fall.
They were the natural leaders. When
a lad, my own son, was reported among the fallen .the men ot his company took the trouble to write from
the trenches expressing their sympathy for the fallen leader.

A wave of Interest has been aroiiB*
ed locally through repeated reports
being circulated that there ls a pos-
nihility of development ot another
brunch of the lumbering Industry .r
what in fact may be termed a now
industry In the Crow's Nest Pass,
with the likelihood of Us centre being ln close proximity to Fernle.
This venture is said to be the establishment of a fairly large capacity
pulp and paper mill, and It Is known
ihat parties have beeu investigating
.onditlons as to the supply of limber
and Its accessibility to a suitable site
where cheap power can be had.
Quite naturally the promoters of
thia project are not proclaiming their
intentions In loud terms, but are very
quietly carrying on the preliminary
work, lt Is understood, however, that
a party of cruisers and pulp mill
experts are now engaged In the limits located along the South Fork
and Lodge Pole Creek, in from Elko,
where an abundant quantity of good
quality pulp timber ls said to abound.
Rumor Is also current tbat those
really behind this proposed industrial
development are fully responsible financially and otherwise to carry it out
to the final stage, provided of course
the conditions in this vicinity warrant, lt is also understood that they
are extremely anxious to secure a
permanent supply of pulp products,
as there already Is ample market for
the greater portion ot the mill's output with another enterprise, in which,
these parties are interested and have
control, namely, one of the large Chicago dallies. The management of
the local end of the matter la under
the direction of a prominent lumberman of thia district.

An urgent plea hat. been made by
all public bodies interested ln forest
and game protection to campers,
fishermen, hunters and others having
occasion to uso the woods (or recreation, Kvery such man is asked to
join hands with the forest rangers
of British Columbia this year in eliminating at least half of the enormous
forest fire losses chargeable last summer to human agency.
It is a comparatively simple matter
for any camper or fisherman to take
such sensible precautions as to extinguish a camp fire before leaving
camp, to put out a cigarette before
throwing it away or to avoid throw-
ign matches Into inflammable leaves,
twigs or moss. A great many campers show very little caution In selecting a Bpot to build their camp fires.
In no case should a camp fire be built
against a tree or ln an old log or in
a dry bog, but wherever possible on a
rocky shore or on a gravel or sand
base. A small ftre always cooks better than a large one and is much easier to extinguish. When through with
the cooking fire a few quarts of water
or a shovel or two of earth will easily
extinguish lt. No glowing coals or
smoking embers should he left under
any circumstances.
If those who enjoy and profit by the
forest areas of British Columbia, particularly the campers and fishermen,
would take such simple precautions
they would preserve this year hundreds of the finest and most beautiful camping spots in the province .and
at the same time remove one of the
main sources of forest fires wbich are
doing such enormous damage to the
main source of employment in this

cal manner tlie wonderful story of the
"Book of Esther," and with splendid
effect, the spirit and message of tbe
cantata was developed by the choir.
The chorus work was well done, and
deserves special commendation. The
chorus "They that goeth forth aud
Weepeth" was rendered in a very fine
and telling manner, all parts being
well balanced, and the message of the
piece being delivered in an effective
The chorus, "Long Uve our Noble
King.'' was given with splendid attack nml with precision and exactness. "Our Soul Ih Escaped" was also rendered iu a manner that showed complete mastery of tlie work.
All the choruses showed the result of
training and leadership, and reflected
great credit upon the choir.
The solo work readied u high standard. At short notice the part of
Queen Esther was taken bv MM, K.
Paterson. Her rich soprano voice
and her vocal abilities are too well
known to require any eulogy. Her
reputation was enhanced by her work
iu this cantata. In a telling way she
developed tlie idea of the task of Esther In supplicating for the Jewish
peoples, aud imploring the help of
the King, Ahasuerus, to liberate her
countrymen. Special mention should
be made of her solo "Israel, Oh Israel," as well ag her solo, "O King, if
I Have for a Favor,'' both of these
showed Mrs, Paterson's power of in-
'crpretation, and brought out her vocal powers,
Mrs. H. Klnghorn possesses a rich
contralto voice which enabled her to
handle almost with perfection her
part as Zeresli. His sense of dramatic finish and touch enabled her to
render the solo, "Why should this Hebrew," ln a manner which left noth-
inb to be desired. It was a splendid
effort. Her rendition of "Thy Galling
Defeat" wus also well done. Mr, i,
McDonald, who at the last hour consented to take the part of the King,
proved himself to be an artist of
high merit. He possesses a splendid bass voice which he knows how
to use, which he did in an admirable
manner. All his solos were rendered with telling effect and the choir
were indebted to him for hl.i volutble
The arduous part of Haman was
taken by Mr. Arthur Shankland. This
part demanded a keen Interpretation
of the work and Its message, at the
same time presenting fine opportunities for dramatic reproduction. Mr.
Shankland entered into his part with
earnestness and determination. The
result being a fine rendition of Hainan's mesageB. The duet by Queen
Esther and Mordecul is one of the
strongest pieces In the work, aud the
rendition of this was one of the beat
efforts of the evening. Miss Eunice
Parrett showed her musical powers
to fine effect In the obllgato solo "To
Thee O Lord," a choice composition
to which ample justice waB done. The
same Is true of her rendering of "Do
I Sleep." which was much appreciated hy the audience. Mrs. Qougeon
rendered in a telling manner the solo
1.0 O'er the Wicked"; and the solos
by Mrs. Adlard and Mis* Viola Sarvis
were also well done, while Mrs. McPhee took the contralto obllgato solo,
"Thou will keep him in perfect
Peace," In an eminently satisfactory
Mr. I. Hannah sang well and
brought out the part of Harbonah in
a most dramatic manner worthy of
the occasion. Mr. J. L. Palmer did
full justice to Hagai, especially In the
solo "Thou wilt keep Him." Mr.
Palmer has a powerful voice which ia
admirably suited for work of thla
The organist. Mlse Aim* Sarvls,
had a heavy lank which, however, was
handled in a splendid manner and
had much to do with the success of
the cantata. One unusual feature of
this work was the wide distribution
ot solo work among the members of
the choir.
The applause at the close ot the
gathering showed the appreciation of
tho audience. g

A letter from the Cranbrook Musical Society again laying the mutter
ot a grant for the bund before tlie
council waa read and received favorable consideration, some of ihe aldermen stating that they felt more
disposed at the present time to make
a grant than previously. Alderman
Balment moved and Alderman Cameron seconded, that h grant of $»0 per
month for nix montlis be made tor this
purpose, and this wa» carried. It Is
expected, however, that the band will
render some public service hi consideration of the grant.

The city clerk filed his ofiicial return of the vote taken on the Water

received and filed. Later this by-law
waa finally passed and will be properly signed and placed on the statute books. ,
Accounts presented with the approval of the finance committee placed
upon them were passed to the amount
of about 111.418.
Reports from the Fire Chief, the
City Foreman, and the Dairy Inspector were presented aud ordered filed.
The report of the electric light department stated that the work at the sub-
sation was now completed in readiness for receiving the new supply of
power from Bull River, and work on
the new line to the Sash and Door
plant was now ln progress.
A number of miscellaneous matters
were brought up by members of the
council for information, and occasioned some discussion. Alderman
Santo asked how It was that the
Board of Trade cume to be giving
the war memorial Into the hands of
the G.W.V.A., when be thought that
the understanding was that if the
time ever came when a park was
built in the city the monument would
be moved into it. He also stated that
the attention of the police should be
drawn to the prevalence of coasting
and bicycle riding on the sidewalks
in the city.
A little discussion also arose on
tlte matter ot salaries, and whether
the scale for day labor shall he made
to conform with the rate now prevailing on the government roads, which
18 understood to be $3.75 per day.
This wili  probably be decided later.
The question was also raised as to
whether the new assistant in the office at the clly hall should be paid
at first us much as her predecessor
was receiving after a number of years
of service.

The value of the reindeer to the native Inhabitants of Labrador and

efforts again being made to build up
herds of these anluutla In tlie regions
referred to, The Hudson's lju>' Company lias taken hold nf tlie enterprise
a (id recently landed 628 reindeer,
most oi' them nt Huff in Land some

common with other animals, are liable*
to certain discuses and parasitical

With a considerably exaggerated
application of the word, ft was stated in "Cranbrook's oldest etc.. etc.,"
that there were some fireworks at the
annual Conservative meeting last
week, but from all that can be gut bored it can apply the term in all truth
to the district [Libera] meeting held ou
Wednesday evening of this week.
However, perhaps circumstances will
be considered to alter thc case, and
what were fireworks in one case may
become tiie harmony of archangels in
another. Officers Tor Ihe district
body were elected, ami lho president
of the organization is J. Jackson, of
thiH city. W. Lindsay, of Kimberley,
Is first vice-president, and Mrs. W. F.
Doran, second vice-president. No permanent secretary was named nt this
time, and the official who has been
acting in the past will carry on till
a successor Is appointed. Dr. P. B.
Miles la the treasurer of thc district
body. The executive will consist of
the officers of the association, aud the
president and two members from the
city Women's Liberal Association, and
the outside points will linve representation from the respective presidents
and one -or two others from each of
thc local organizations.
