It Is now practically certain that the
Cranbrook Fall Fair, taking place this
year on the 12th and tilth September,
will Im held on the O.W.V.A. Grounds,
und not on tho former fair grounds up
on lho Hat norma the track. KffortH to

days required have not been sueiess-
ful, and arrangements will now bo put
on foot to get the iiho of the grounds,
ami possibly tbe curling rlnk for the
stock and other exhibits. If it is felt
The prise list bus been practically
completed for tbe fair this year, and
while the total prize money reaches
about the same aggregate »s In 1919,
the lust year the fair was held, the
classes have been re-arranged, with
more rogard to the recognised lines of
farming activity throughout the district. Livestock wfll become the main
class in the prize list, wtth substantially Increased prize money being
put up. The total prize money put up
for fruit and poultry wilt be reduced
somewhat, according to (lie amount of
activity it ts felt Is now being devoted
to these lines in the district, and yet
sill leave lt worth while for ouslde exhibitors to bring In their exhibits.
At. the. meeting next Monday evening. It Is expected that the prize list
as drawn up by the different committees will be presented for the approval of a general meeting, in practically
completed form, so far ns the exhibits
nre concerned.
At least one dance will be put on
lu tbe Auditorium In connection witb
the Fair, this being set for the tlrst
night, September 12th, Robinson's Orchestra having been engaged for the
occasion. It is possible that there
mny also he a dance for the following
night also. J. F. Gulmont, who has
been In charge of this committee, has
nsked to be relieved from these duties,
on account of his work, and Major
Hicks will be asked to take on with
the work of the committee.
Mrs. J. Kennedy, of this city, who
Is confined to the hospital at present,
is nicely on tho mend at present.
The burly figure of Provincial Constable Mortimer has been missed from
the city of late, he being away on vacation. He Is being relieved by Constable Collins.
Report* of a splendid time at the
Scout camp nt Morrlssey nre being received, nnd every indication points to
tbe camp which clones this week going down as an outstanding success.
The football club is making an efforl
to arrange a game wltb Coal Creek
to take place here on Sunday afternoon
next, between trains. At the time of
going to press, final word was still
being awaited by wire from there.
The Coal Creek eleven bad previously
Intimated their willingness lo come to
rrunbrook. and It was expected thni
favorable word WOUld Ma received.
All is not to be plain sailing apparently In connection with the proposed
appointment to the Vancouver Harbor Hoard of R. E. Beattie, formerly
of this city. No official word of the
appointment has come as yet, but it
haa become looked upon as practically a certainty, merely awaiting the
formal announcement.
I.AHt week the Merchants' Kxc.ia.ige
of Vancouver, a strong organisation
of shipping men at tbe coast, through
their president and secretary, sent a
wire t» the premier at Ottawa in regard to tho matter as follows:
'The Vancouver Merchants' Kx-
change, comprising membership of over one hundred principal shipping and
export firms In this port, note from
newspaper dispatches that changes
are contemplated in the personnel of
the Vancouver Harbor Board.
Permit uh to urge strongly that any
violent or complete changes at the
present time would I* fraught with
serious consequences, causing disruption of policies outlined. Further, are
of the opinion that If any changes contemplated, men properly qualified for
such positions through experience iu
port development and maritime affairs
should be the primary consideration.
Many here are of the opinion thot salaried commissioners are unnecessary,
there being several men willing to
serve In an honorary capacity, but If
this view be not held be the govornment, we earnestly hope that vlewa of
the shipping and export community
will be taken into consideration."
Playing at top form In every department, and with the able assistance or Mitchell and Mlckens. the
Wardner battery, Creston had no trouble whatever In putting over a 9—1
victory on tbe crack Bonner's Ferry
baseball team at Exhibition Park before tbe biggest crowd that ever saw
a Sunday game in Creston.
Mitchell's twirling was positively
the best ever seen here, his showing
of 13 strike-ous against tha heavy

with having caused such a blazing up

sympathy of all right minded peoplo
In his fight to uphold bis character,
and rightly so; hut there is a great
deal, more Involved in tbe present effort of the electorate to oust the present government from power than the
vindication of Mr. Wallinger's good
Mr. Walllnger is not seeking a vote
of sympathy. Ho knows—none better
—that the strongest appeal hu can
make to the people is the presentation
of a sound business policy—a policy
that wfll make for the best interests
of all with no political bias attached
thereto. He Is fully conscious of his
responsibilities us a public, servant
to be. In accepting nomination, he Ih
entering open eyed Into a new lino of
endeavor, keenly aware that his own
interests must be submerged and made
subservient to the public need.
The Conservative candidate was not
chosen merely to voice displeasure at
Mr. Oliver's Ill-considered action in
summarily dispensing with the services of a valued public servant. On
the contrary, the people of Oranbrook
are somewhat Indebted to the Honorable Premier, In thus releasing for
more Important duties a man of the
mental calibre, unquestioned probity
and wide experience of Mr. Wallinger.
Unwittingly Mr. Oliver has rendered
an immence service to this district
through thc medium of his own tactless blunder.
For the motive behind the Premer's
action the average voter does not care
two merry whoops. That bas long
since been lost sight of,-eclipsed by
tbe certainty that. In Mr. Wallinger,

days in visiting some parts of tlie riding. As an old timer of this section
be needs no Introduction, ho that little
time is spent iu the preliminaries of
getting acuualnted. Some parts of the
riding promise practically solid support for Mr. Wai linger, many electors

there has been u little looseness in the

spirit actuating things at this time
apparently, and a strong Conservative

NiiirgvMs Further Airing of
WalHnyer Case*
the Editor,
rrunbrook Herald
The case of Mr. N\ A. Walllnger
Rooms a very unsatisfactory one, and
sbould surely nm be left as it now
stands. As tbe Premier has made
known that he as no objection to his
letter of June l7tb (which, he asserts
gives a clear statement of the reasons
(or dismissal) being published, will
Mr. Walllngor not give this letter to
Hie press, so Hint everyone may judge
fir himself the soundness or other-
Wlos of these reasons? Am I wrong In
thinking that nothing short of wilful
negligence of duly or actual misdealing could ordinarily Justify the summary dismissal of a public servant of
such long standing? If, on publication of (his letter, the general opinion
should he that there was no good Justification for the Premier's action, I
would suggest that there should be a
public subscription to assist Mr. Walllngor In taking a case of wrongful
dismissal to the courts. If this were
done, I, for one, wotrld be glad to contribute my mlto, ns I do not think tbat
lhe Province can afford to lose the
services nf any honest and capable

Hut Instead, the Premlaf chooses lo erect an elaborate structure of fault and criticism upon

the ground when its moiety of

not without a humorous aspect

AFTER having lain In neglected
** obscurity for upwards of sixty
years, visited only by occasional
tourists along the historic Richelieu
the Canadian Government has hand
ed the care of Isle aux Noix over to
the National Parks Commission to
be preserved as an historic relic of
by gone days. In a lecture on "His
tory in the Making along the Riche

request to the Government to tha1
effect, the Hon. Senator G. G. Fost

Prosperity of Canada Depends on Immigration
Lord Shaughnessy Declares Restrictions Must be Removed
I The urgent necessity of removing
[from the Immigration laws of Canada all irksome restrictions which
•re hampering the entry into Canada of good settlers for the farm
lands and forests of the Dominion
was presented in no uncertain terms
by Lord Shaughnessy, Chairman of
the C.P.R., speaking before the
Junior Bar Association of Montreal
in the Reform Club.
"The natural feeling that grew out
of the war," said his Lordship, "encouraged the placing of restrictions
on immigration that have heen most
disastrous in their results. We must
have these restrictions removed. We
must have settlers from all over the
world, not artisans, but men who
will go out on to our lands and our
forests and fisheries and help to develop these resources, and there
must be an insistent demand on Parliament to pass legislation that will
open the doom to them."
His Lordship further pointed to
the need of making good Canadian
citizens of these immigrants, and to
foster throughout the Dominion the
spirit at Canadian citizenship. Mutual understanding and neighborli-
ness between Canadians at opposite
extremities of the Dominion must be
promoted by every possible means.
Win by Work Only.
Alluding to the fact that the mem-
hers of the Junior Bar were on the
threshold of their profession, he
pointed out to them the high road to
success. Not by luck or by special
grace, but by hard work, devotion to
the profession, and strict observance
of the ethics and dignity of the Bar
would they achieve the objects they
were aiming at.
Lord Shaughnessy recounted in'

Expressing his admiration for lawyers in general, His Lordship explained how important they were on
tbe staff of a railway organization,
not only for their legal abilities,' but
also because their particular training rendered them specially able to
extend valuable help to the operating staff in tbe working out of practical operating problems. "I do not
think we can have any better evidence

Dropping again int-* his anecdotal
•tyle, Lord Shaughnessy kept his
audience for some time in continuous laughter with a series of humorous incidents drawn from his own
lengthy experience, tending to show
that no detail in connection with any
legal dispute was to be neglected,
that counsel should look at every
conceivable aspect of his case for
possible ammunition.
They would accomplish nothing
through luck, or through special
grace, he told them, becoming serious once more. "Success will come
by good hard work, and devotion to
your profession. It must be a matter of constant study in order to
keep abreast with the law and if you
are to be prepared for the emergencies that arise in trial of cases
you must pursue rather a broad
course of reading. I have no doubt

Mr. n. a. Walllnger,
Crnnbrook, B.C,
Dear Sir,
Replying lo your request thai t
make a personal enquiry Into the reason., for ymir dismissal, I may say
thai I was shown a file ot correspondence relating lo governmeni liuslness
as regards the Cranhrook Agency- After perusing tills correspondence, I
requested the executive that you be
removed from olllce.
First, let me say that governmeni
agents occupy a very responsible position, as, in addition to the transacting of business on correct business
principles, they presumably carr)'
out tiie policy of tho government in
their methods of administering the
duties of their olllce, nnd Ihe electors
very properly hold the government to
account for iho manner in which their
agents perforin governmental functions.
Tho correspondence above referred
to shows that un June 26th, 1921, you
advised tliu Deputy Mlnlstor that, the
Wild HorHu Dredging Co., Incorporated, was registered in B.C., that they
held fifteen placer licenses; thai thoy
wero In arrears of rentals; thai Ihelr
leases were cancellable; that the Company shareholders were previously
unaware of their position, nnd thai
Ihey desired re-iiislatenieiit as to eight
leases, and that two of the uofore-
meutloned leases had heen staked by
other parlies; and yon recommended
On June 28th, 1921, the Deputy Minister of Mines advised yon the leases
wero not cancellable, an you had supposed, and that there was no reason
why the rentuls in arrears should not
lie paid and lhe leases placed lu good
standing. You were nlso advised that
Iho ground covered by these lenses
wns not open to location. It was also pointed out to you llml tli ore was a
discrepancy between the statements iu
your letter of June 26th and your previous returns made to tlie Department, both as to thc arrears and number of leases. As far us 1 bave read
Ilie correspondence, you do not appear
to huve offered any explanation of
these differences.
Vou not only received lho advice of
the Deputy Minister of Mines, bul you
acted upon it In tlmt on July 4th, 1021
yon received from Captain Rodger
of the W.H.D. Company, $226.00 to be
applied on account of the Co, louses,
and you so advised the Department by
letter' dated July Sth, and In reply t!
Deputy Minister of Mines advised you
Ihere was no reason why you should
not accept balance nf rentals in satisfactory Instalments. You did not, however, ndvlso the Department Ihat you
hnd uot paid the $225.00 received from
Capt. Rodgers to the credit of tho Government, hut Hint you pnld Ilie money
tho credit of your private account.

Dlalrlrt rasienger Agent, Ca^arr
which you had made to the Secretary
of Uie W.ll.D. Co. iu advising him
thai you were acting uuder instructions from the Deputy Minister of
On November 28th, you wrote the
Deputy Minster of Mines thut (contrary lo his advice received) you were
under Hie impression that tlie leases
could lie cancelled under sub-section
3, but that if such was not the case
you asked permission to cancel under
sub-section 1 of section 114.
On June 25th you were anxious thai
ihe t'o. he re-lusiated, and although
you had been advised that as the leases were -.subject to payment of rentals) in good standing iu November,
you appear lo be determined to cancel
and you falsely state ihat you were
acting under instructions from tlie
Deputy .Minister of Mines.
in this letter of November 28th you
tlso advise the Deputy Minister Hint
you have applications from others who
ire anxious to work the grounds.
Now what happened between July
4th, when you received $225.00, money
f tlie Crown which you paid Into your
private account and November 1211:
when you not llled the Department
thai yon had cancelled the W.H.D. Co.
ui credibly Informed that on August llth, 1021, you wrote to Captain
T. K. Rodgers, Vaklnui. Wash., that
you needed financial help the worst
way and did not know which way tc
turn. Vou Inlimute that you have
business together ror which yon have
not received a cent., but that on sev-
ral occasions you have iiad to "dig
down." Vou advise him that he cm
wipe out every indebtedness by helping yon out now, Vou Intimate that if
nnot spare it easily lie can make
II a Ion ii. You advise lilm that lho
Ranks cannot help you out. Vou intimate three hundred duliurs as the
amount needed and that you don't like
to borrow from people you liavo n«"
dealings with,
Vou also say wltll reference to the
w.ll 11. Co, that you put up most of
Mir money for Its incorporation, that
you iiad not received a cunt, nud that
part of ihe money you had put up wa:
your Bister's, which must bo repaid.
This letter puts yon In a vary pecu
liar position, namely, you are a Gov
ernmonl Agent writing a begging let
ter to a man with whom you are
transacting Government business, You
refer to liuslness you bave had
gel her. Vou have received $226.00
from this mini on (lovernment
count which you have misplaced In
your private account. Vou arc so hard
hit you do uot know which way tc
turn. Knowledge of your position as
stated liy yourself raises tho question
In my mind whether the ?22.").0i) before
mentioned was standing to your
credit at the time you were so hard
I have no information at present i
lo whether Captain Rodgers ,came t
your assistance or not.
On November 14th you wrote to the
Secretary of the W.H.D. Co. notifying
lllm that you Imd cancelled dredging
leases. Ynu gavo it ns your opinion
i It it t this wns greatly to the roiiipatiyN
ndviiiitago nnd you suggest that they
send some one to rc-Iociite the leases
before some one else steps in.    Vou
Vour next letter to the Department also express the opinion It would not
appears to be of tho date of November  be  wortii  tholr while to tako
12th, 1021. and you advise the Deparl-
ineiit that you had cancelled certain
placer mining leases (including thoso
of the W.ll.D. CO.).
On November 15th tho Deputy Minister uf Mines directed your attention
much ground as before.
On Juno 2Sth you advised Hint two
leases hud been re-localed by other
parties, that seven leases covered old
tailings. On November 28th you ad
vised that you had applications from
pari mont as to whether or not theso
applications bad been made in response to your suggestion to the Secretary of the W.H.D. Co. that tbey
should send some one to re-locate the
ground beforo some one else stops lu.
Ou what theory do you explain your
advice to the Secretary of the W.H.D.
Co. thut lhe cancellation of the leases
would be to their advantage? The
Company on November 9th forwarded
you $ti0.00 to cover fees for recording
work douo on thoso leases, and on
November 14th you relurned tho money advising them falsely thut tbo
leasus had beon cancelled on instructions from lho Deputy Minister.
There ts ono way In whlcb tho cancellation of the leases would work to
lho Cnmpany's advantage, namely, ll
appears from u letter wrllton by the
Mining Recorder under dale of September lbt, 1021, Ihal the W.H.D. Co,
owed tho Clovornment $::.250.00 in
rentals. By cancellation of Ihe leases
and the re-location of lhe ground by
some one employed by the W.H.D. Co.
it would luipear that Ihe Co. would be
clear of the arrears; they would lie
rid of the ground which you appear to
think was valueless to the Co., and In
addition they would betiefll by the reduced rentals under thn 1020 Amendment of the Placer Mining Act. So
it. would appear front the correspond-
nco that you, as Government Agent,
wore counselling Ihe W.H.D. Co how
to escape Ihe payments dm1 and owing to your employers, and yet at the
same time preserve lo themselves all
hat was of value iu the leases. 1
think it Is to tbo credit of the \V H.D.
Co. that they do not appear to have
cted on your suggestions.
Ou November Oth, 1021. the Solicitor
lor tlie W.H.D. Co. communicated with
the Department re. the before mentioned leases, and was advised that
notwithstanding Mr. Wallinger'': action tlie leases were good an' valid
nd that none of tbe property covered
thereby was open to ro-loci'ion
Ou December Oth, 1021, instructions
were    given    to    Invest lgato    certain
alters in connection with the W.H.D.
o.'s leases.
Tiie report of Die Investigator shows
that you purported to cancel tl". leas-
a of the W.H.D. I'l..^ in spile nf Departmental Instructions that ihe lenses
could not be cancelled ns suggested
by you.
Tbe report shows that you pleaded
that you signed the cancellation notice
is placed before you hy the Mining
Recorder without noticing the name
of the Wild Horse Dredging Oo. This
statement is unbelievable in view of
vour various tellers on this subject,
•specially your personal letter of November 14th to the Secretary of the
Company in which ynu advise they
employ someone to re-locate. The investigator further reports his "belief
that ho (meaning you) has had more
unofficial connection with the Company than is desirable for one occupying the position of Cold Commissioner."
The $225.00 received by you on Gov-
>riimont account on July 4th appears
to have been retained by you until
December 16th, 1021, when tho investigator was conducting his enquiry.
Tiio investigator also reports "that
Treasury Instructions as to payment
if revenue Into the bank have not
been carried out." Further tho report
stale:-; Hint, "lie (meaning you> never
made ■* test check of the cash, or ex-
ircised any supervision in respect to
Treasury iust nut ions regarding the
hanking of revenue."
I linve not referred to the Khluyer
matter as il is simply additional evidence of the unsatisfactory conditions
existing in tbe Cranbrook Office under
your supervision.
Brief ly put. you have deliberately
disobeyed instructions. You have
placed Oovernment money to your
own credit and retained It (with a
itlBpicton that yon have used It) for
over live months, and only transferred
it to the credit of the Government
when an inquiry was proceeding. You
liavu made false stuteinettls In attempting to justify your actions. Vour
conduct of your olllce hus been unsatisfactory.

Dear Sir.
I now beg to reply to your letter of
Juno 17lb. In which you for mul Mod
'he reasons on which my dismissal
was bused. 'The delay in answering
Hits letter Is duo to tho following
On my dismissal by telegram without, explanation I Immediately wrote
to tlie Deputy Minister of Finance,
from whom I received the telegram,
asking for the rea-sons for my peremp-
ory dismissal. As I received no reply-
to this letter I then wrote to the Civil
Rorvice Commissioner, making a similar request. I received a curt reply
from him stating that I had beon dismissed by Order-in-Council, and that
all be bad lo do was to refund to me
the amount, of my credit uuder the
Superannuation Act.
Some time in May, when you wero
in Cranbrook, it was brought lo my
attention that you bad made a public
statement to the effect tbat I would be
given no reasons for iny dismissal,
bul thnt I could hnvo an investigation
any time I demanded it. Believing
that this statement had bten made by
you In food faith, I wrute to you on
letter, 1 again wrote to you Ott Juna
Ritii, repeating my demand. Apparently this lust letter crossed yours ot
June litli abovo referred to. On receipt of this tetter, still believing that
your statement had been made tn good
faith, I refrained from answering the
charges therein contained, daily expecting thut an Investigation would be
forthcoming, and that I would bo given tho opportunity to defend myself.
However, your statement that I
could have un investigatkm any time
1 asked for it. was apparently not made
iu good faith us somo seven weeks
have elapsed since my demand, and
my roiiucst. lius not yet been granted.
As you uro evidently not going to give
mo an opportunity to defend myself,
tho only courso opon lo me is to do so
through the publio press, and I will
ihorel'oro deal seriatim wltb the cliar-
ges you have brought ngninBt mo.
As ihose charges are contained iu a
rambling, single-spaced typewritten
tetter, full of repetitions aud Insinuations, covering four pages of foolscap, it will be necessury to boil them
down to an intelligible form, though 1
will ulso publish your letter in full
with the reply. Briefly your charges are as follows:
Charge One,
I aiicellalbni  of Leases Contrary  to
Instruct Ions.
IA) That on June 25th, 1921. I
wrote lo the Deputy Minister of Mines
advising that certain placer leases
held liy the Wild Horse Dredging Company wero cancellable.
(B) Thut on June 28th, the Deputy
Minister or Mines advised me thut
these leases were not cancellable.
If) That on November 12th I wrote
to the Deputy Minister of Mines advising  him  thnt.  I   hud  cancelled  the
(D) That by so doing I had disobeyed the instructions contained in the
tetter of Juno 28th from the Deputy
Minister cf Mines.
My  Reply to Cliaiue One.
(A) 1 did write tbe letter of June
2f,Ui alleged.
(HI I received the tetter of June
28th from the Deputy Minister of Mines as alleged.
(Ct Two or three days after the
receipt of this letter. Captain Rogers,
the president of the Wild Horse Dredging Company, called at the Government Ofllce in Cranbrook, and told me
that he hml come direct from the Deputy Minister of Mines at Victoria, and
had arranged with lilm for the retention of the teases by the Company on
the following terms:
Tlmt $500 cash bo paid forthwith,
tliis payment to count from June lst
mid $;*i(i() be paid every six months until the full amount of arrears on the
leases were paid.
(D) Captain Rogers then stated
that Iiis ''ompany was without funds,
hut Ihat he would pay $225.00 personally, which he gave me, nnd would pay
the balance of $275.00 within five days,
as he was confident within that time
the Company would raise tbo money.
As f had not been advised by the Department of this arrangement alleged
by Captain Rogers I wrote to the Department for continuation aud recetv-
od a reply stating that no such arrangement hnd been arrived at and
that captain Rogers bad had uo Interview with the Deputy Minister of
Mines as alleged, but that tbe Department would agree to the arrangement
as outlined. I naturally considered
this agreement us altering all the conditions obtaining at the time of the
letter from the Deputy Minister of
Mines, dated June 28th.
Iu November, having bad no reply
from the Company to my repeated demands for payment and as no further
sum had been paid by the Company,
or of Captain Rogers, either on uccount of the balance of the first Instalment or any other Instalment, I considered that the Company hud fulled
to curry out even the flrst part of its
agreement and thut the teases had
lapsed automatically, I, therefore,
cancelled them amongst others tbat
were In default and consider that In
so doing I was performing my duty
as Cold Commissioner. I, therefore,
consider thut your charge against me
of disobedience is groundless, as I
simply used my besl judgment in the
exercise of my duty.
Charge Two,
Thut on July 4ih I received $225.00
money of the Crown which I paid into
my private uccount.
My Answer to Charge Two.
On July 4th, when I received from
Captain Rogers tho sum of $225,00 undor tbo circumstances mentioned in
paragraph (ri) of my answer to
Charge One. tlie full amount should
have been $500.00. Al tbe tlmo of paying this money Captain Rogers explained that It was bis private money
and requested me to hold it and not
to pay it In to the Government unless
und until I received the balance of
$275.00 necessary to mako up the first
Instalment from the ('ompany, On receipt of the $225.00 I placed it in nn
envelope on which was endorsed Capt.
Rogers' name, tho duto of receipt, the
amount and purpose for which It was
held, and gave tt to the Government
Cashier, Miss Grace Higglns, with Instructions thut she place It tn her cash
box for safe keeping. At the same
tlmo I notified tbe Mining Recorder,
J. E. Kennedy, of the fact of tbe
iRethoUtst Cburty

Tbe envelope and contents remained
in tbe Government cash box until the
10th day of November, when the Cashier requested me i*» remove the coali
in question, us she objected to the responsibility of holding it any longer.
Accordingly, us ibis was private money belonging to Captain lingers, aud
never at any time became the money
of the frown, as you allege, I deposited it to my private account where it
remUiicri intact until I paid it to tlie
Investigator, Mr. Neville Wright, in
As 1 am tbo sole executor of the
estate of Joseph Ryan, deceased, and
as Captain Rogers was Indebted to tlie
Maid estate in u large sum, 1 was hoping as tbe leases had been cancelled
thot lie would consent, to tbis money
being appropriated to the Ryan Estate, and 1 wrote and spoke to him ou
several occasions making ibis suggestion, and this waa my sole reason for
retaining tbis money.
Tbis answer fully explains your
charge that I deposited Oovernment
monies to my own credit and I reiterate that the money in question wus
never at any lime the property of the
Charge Three.
That I. have been guilty of falsehood In representing that I acted under the Instructions of the Minister of
Mines lu cancelling tlie leases.
Tbo above explanation to Charges
One nn tl Two sufficiently answers this
charge, when, as you must know If
you are conversant with tlie details of
Government Offico procedure, the
phrase "Acting uuder Instructions of
the Deputy Minister of Mines" Is one
of the stereotyped phrases Invariably
used in ibis procedure. I am, therefore, Innocent of this charge also.
I have now fully explained ull Ibe
three specific charges whlcb you bring
against me, but In addition to this you
ninke insinuations and draw conclusions to my discredit from a personal
letter alleged to have been written hy
me to Captain Rogers under date of
August llth, 1921, umi which, at the
time yen foi inula ted your charges
against me yon had never seen; otherwise yen would not have used the
words "credibly informed."
This letter can only be read with a
full knowledge of tbe contents of
otlier private letters written by me to
Captain Rogers nnd of conversations
with him, nil of whlcb had reference
to tbe Ryan Instate and iiad nothing to
do cither directly or Indirectly with
Oovernment business, nnd no man
with any honour or pride of reputation would havo divulged, or used a
single ietier of a series dealing with
a private matter.
Vou taunt mo with being hard up.
I was nnd still am, notwithstanding
olbbteen years of service in the Oovernment of British Columbia. 1 have
no reason to be other titan proud of
my record, as all Oovernment audits
have found my cash in order, though
during tliese eighteen years 1 have
been fu charge of large public funds.
As you have not kept your word in
saying that I could bave an Inveotlga-
tlou at any time I wanted it, I am
publishing your letter to me. with this
reply, and iu doing so am perfectly
bonfldent that I will be completely exonerated by a fair minded public.

_!?,','*-„'-', Montreal indicate that MeOlll University is already a hundred
years old, the roots of that great
educational Institution reach still
further into thc past. In the fascinating volume "McGill and Its
Story" just published, Cyrus Mac-
Millan, thc author, states that the
British settlers in Lower Canada,
after the conquest of Quebec were
eager that their children should
have at least an elementary educn
tion. It was felt, too, that in the
unrest and the uncertainty of the
period immediately following the
American Revolution it was not
advisable to send students in search
of higher professional training to
the universities of tho United States,
which in the days of their British
allegiance had attracted Canadian
students In large numbers.
Efforts were accordingly made to
establish a system of free schools
with the hope that later a univcrsitv
might be founded. As a result of
the agitation for the providing of
educational opportunities in Lower
Canada, The Royal Institute for thc
Advancement of Learning was established under this Act, the King
gave directior.3 for loe establishment "of a competent number of
Free Schools for the instruction of
children  In  the  first rudiments
