often remarked on the wonderful optimism tho sufferer displayed In the
fun. of such dlHCourugement.
A yonr ago this week Mrs. Parks
left this city for the Gravenhurst Sanitarium In Ontario, where sho underwent treatment, and she* also went
through some surgical operations at
Montreal, being away for about six
months. The relief obtained from all
that medical skill could do proved but
temporary, however, and the same Is
true of specialist treatment which had
been taken lately In Calgary. It proved to be one of thoso cases where human skill Is baffled.
Mrs. Parks had been residing in this
city for seven or eight years, and visited here for some time prior to her
marriage. Thero la a little girl three
iu September, left to mourn tho passing of her mother, besides the bo-
rcaved husband. One sister resides at
Greenville College, Greenville, Illinois, another at St. John, New Brunswick, where her mother is also still
residing. There is also a brother still
surviving, who cannot be exactly lo-
cuted. The late Mrs. Parks was In her
thirty-ninth year.
The funeral took place from tho
family residence on Pooley Avenue on
Tuesday afternoon at 3 p.m., Rev. W.
T. Tapscott .of the Baptist church,
conducting the services at the house
und at the cemetery. A profusion of
flowers bespoke tlle love and esteem
In which the deceased lady,was held,
nnd Uie admiration which her brave
fight for life aroused. Tweiity-six
ears followed the hearse In tho funeral cortege to the cemetery.
To the bereaved husband and motherless little daughter the sincere sympathy of the community is extended.

A fortnightly sweep-stake competition has been arranged by the Tournament Committee ot the Cranbrook
Golf Club, open to both ladles and

Commencing1 on Wednesday of this
week, June lst, the Census ot tho Dominion Is belug taken. Thu census
has beon called "tho largest single act
of adminiBtrution of the government,"
ln referenee partly to Its physical extent—tho census organization covering
every suction of the country Tor a
complex und many-sided task—and
ulso to thu great Importance of census
results iu tlie general machinery of
Two enumerators liavo been working iu the city proper this week, M<
srs. D. R. Ferguson uud Chan. Kurr.
They covered something over two hundred families tlie first day, but will
not likely complete their part of tlie
work for about three weeks. J. Benson Ib the enumerator for Wycllffe,
and Mr. James Is appointed to cover
Klmberley aud Marysvllle. S. S.
Simpson Is busy at Moyie and points
west, and F. J. Coe is engaged on thc
district at Rampart and east.
The success of the Census depends
largely upon the co-operation of thc
people. Without general appreciation
of the ends In view, and without the
cordial assistance of individual citizens toward those ends, u good census
will be Imposlble. A brief description
of tho scope, methods and purpose of
the census and Its place In statistical
and general administration will therefore bo of interest and utility at the
present moment.
' It may not be generally known tlmt
the credit of taking the first census of
modern times belongs to Canada. The
year waB 1666; the census was oue of
the colony of New France. There had
been earlier records of settlement at
Port Royal (1605) and Quebec (1008),
but the census of 1660 was a systematic "nominal" enumeration of thc people, (i.e., a record of each Individual
by name,) taken for a fixed date,
showing the age, sex, placo of residence, occupation and conjugal condition of each person. The results are
to be seen in a document of 154 pages
In the Archives of Paris, of which a
transcript Is in Ottawa, Altogether
this census recorded 3.215 souls. When
it is recalled that In Europe tlie first
modern census dated only from the
eighteenth century, whilst In tho United States no census was taken before 1790, the achievement of the primitive St. Lawrence colony In Instituting what is today one of the principal
instruments of government in every
civilized community may call for more
than passing appreciation.
At Confederation the British North
America Act specifically mentioned
the census and statistics" ns fulling
within Dominion ns distinguished
from provincial jurisdiction (Section
91.) The first Domlniou Census Act
was passed ln 1S70, and the first census was taken thereunder in 1871.
Similar comprehensive censuses have
followed every tenth year, namely,
1881, 1891, 1901, and 1911.
The census on June 1. 1*21. is therefore the sixth comprehensive decennial to bo taken since Confederation.
In Canada the fundamental legal
ralson d'etre of tho census is to determine the representation ln our federal parliament. As ls well known,
the llrltlsh North America Act gavo
the province of Quebec a fixed number
of seats (sixty-five) in the Dominion
House of Commons. Tho number as-
signed to tho other provinces was pro
rata, with nn arrangement that the
first readjustment should lake place
In the completion of the census of
1871, and thnt a slmilnr readjustment
should follow every subsequent decennial census. The census Is thus taken
primarily to enable u redistribution
bill to he passed by parliament.
But the census has far wider uses
than to fix oiectorat representation!
It constitutes, In fact, under the modem system, nothing less than a grunt
periodical stocktaking of tho Canadian
people, designed to show from the
widest anglo tho point that bus been
reached in the general progress of tho
nation, It Is dlficult within brief
compass to explain how this function
Is fulfilled. Fundamentally, the Importance of tho census hinges upon Its
analysis of tho human element or man
power «f the country. Tho people

set of every state. Their numbers,
sex, age, occupation, racinl origin,
language, education, etc., etc., nru

all other facts must bo projected of

The outstanding wedding of the season took place on Wednesday afternoon of tliis week, June lst, when
Miss Bertha May Nlergarth Gill,
daughter of Mr! and Mrs. Thos. Gill
of this city, was united in marriage to
Mr. Sdward Lawrence Doolan, of Cran-
TSrook. The weddlg was an outdoor affair, taking place on tlie verandah of
Uie home o;* tlie bride's parents, the
ceremony being performed by Rev.
Fattier Murphy, of St. Mary's church.
Thc bride was married in her trav-
lling costume of sand colored trico-
let, and a French braided turban hat
land, trimmed to match. She carried a beautiful bouquet of Ophelia
roses, and was unattended. The brid-
1 couple took their pluce on the ver-
ndah under a pretty arch of wild
blossoms, white and mauve lilacs, and
i white bell, while masses of flowers
and follago, consisting of ferns, palms,
and baskets of flowering geraniums
wero in evidence plentifully.
There were about fifty guests in attendance at the ceremony. Miss Muriel Walllngor played the bridal march,
and during thc signing of the register
at the close of thc ceremony Mrs. F.
M. MacPherson very effectively sang
"Because." The decorations of pink
sweetpeas, and smilax, also baby's
breath ami white satin ribbon which
were seen inside the house were also
much admired, and -the customary
wedding cake was prominent ln the
centre of the table. A buffet lunch
was served later In the nfternoon after
</>ngra tula tions had beeu extended to
tiio happy couple, girls of the G.B.C.
K.Y.Z. Club assisting.
Messages of congratulations and
good wishes were received from Mr.
C.A.K. GUI, now at Retlaw, Alta.,
brother of thu bride, who was unable j
to attend tho wedding, and from other j
relatives at Morris, Man.
A host of friends of the young cou-
plo escorted them to the station where
they boarded tho enstbotind train for
Winnipeg and south to Morris, Man.,
where they will visit the bride's grandmother, Mrs. P. Kastner, at her home,
"Oakwood." Mr. and Mrs. Doolan
will bo away about two weeks, It Is
understood, and after returning here
will go on to Kamloops, where they
expect to make their future home. Every good wish is extended to them by
their friends hero, who hope the blue
birds who wero In evidence at the
wedding, flying in nnd out of their
nest over the Bflh and wedding bell
during tho ceremony, may truly be
emblamatlc of future happiness
The numerous and costly gifts which
wero in evidence Indicated the unusually wide popularity which the bride
ffnd groom onjoy ln the city. Their
gift*to Miss Wulllnger waB a beautiful
gray leather purse, and to Mrs. MacPherson a hand painted china bowl.
Added Interest accrues to the wedding from tho fact that Mr. ud Mrs,
Tiio .list Annual Conference of tlie
Metliodlst Church of British Columbia
which has recently concluded Its sessions In tlie Metropolitan church at
Victoria, was one of the most remarkable in the history of that ecclesiastical body.
Tlie conference church Is probably
tlie finest church building in  British
lolumbla. Tiie interior lias just beeu
decorated at u cost of twelve thousand
dollars, the major part of tiiis expense
being borne by the family of the kite
David Spencer.
The attendant'.,, at the Conference
was tiie largest on record, and ls In
itself an index of tiie growth of the
church in the province. Over 200
ministers and laymen were in attendance, and from tlie beginning to the
end of the conference great interest
was shown in tho affairs under consideration. The stationing committee,
tlie most responsible committee of the
conference met on the first Monday
and after working two whole duys and
nights, submitted Its first list ot stations on tlie Thursday noon. The ministerial session opened on Wednesday
morning under tho chairmanship of
Rev. B. C. Freeman, of Vancouver. The
character, standing and ability of each
minister and probationer came under
review and reported In cacli caso as
satisfactory.   Four probationers were
accepted Into full connection witli
the church.
Two of tho ministers, Rov. Dr.
Lange, of Port Simpson, and Rev. J.
Laycock of Vancouver, were reported
as having died during tho year. The
educational standing of the probationers was keenly received, the demand
for a high standard being very pronounced.
Tho goneral session opened on
tho Thursday following. Election of
president Ior the year resulted In tho
election on the second ballot of Rev.
Capt. J. H. Wriglit, of Robson Mcm-
orlul church, Vancouver. Mr. Wright
enlisted with Iiis son us a private
during tho great war, but eventually
received a commission; this election
was very popular, especially with tlie
returned men of the conference. Rev,
R. M. Thompson of Victoria was elected secretary of tho conference,
After this tho work of the conference was entered Into with great earnestness and during the whole proceedings the conference was enthusiastic
aud aggressive. The various reports
were all of a remarkable nature, and
every department of the church showed an increase and signs of great vitality. The general statistics report
showed that thc membership ln B. C. I
was 16647, an increase during the year'
of 879. The amount raised for all
purposes during the year was nearly
half a million dollars, an increase of
$79,000. Tho Ladles' Aids Societies
raised $46,907, an Increase of $5,000,
while the W.M.S. in raising $17,280 Increased their offerings by $',000.
The report of the Sunday School
committee was also fery encouraging.
Plans were made for an aggressive
campaign during the year especially
In regard to the work of evangelism.
The figures were a* follows: Scholars, 21324; teachers 1874; total membership 23198, an increase' of 1872.
The amount raised by tho Sunday
School $41,592.00, an Increase of $8,-
The Missionary report wns given by
Dr. Sipprell and Mr George Bell.
These gentlemen pointed out that the
success of the missionaries hnd thrown
more responsibilities upon tho church
as a whole. From all parts, tlie path
of obligation was being opened out
and the Board of Missions requested
for next year 1% million dollars to
carry on. The conference of B.C.
pledged itself to raise next year $40,-
000 as their share of the amount, this
being an Increase of 25'• over last
year's giving. The amount raised during the year was $3^,000.00, being an
increase of $5,000.00.
The report of Columbian College
was received with great enthusiasm
Never beforo had such a report been
presented. Not only was the financial
position phenomenal but the work of
tho college has been such that a chorus of approval Is being heard. Dean
Coleman of the University of B.C.
stated It was Impossible to endorse too
highly the standards and accomplishments of Columbia College. It now
takes Its place among tho finest educational Institutions of the Dominion.
Th report of the committee on eval-
gelism and social servlco Is generally
awaited with great anticipation. This
year showed no exception, and the report In itself raised the whole conference to a high degree of enthus
iasm. Never for many years has such
a clear, concise, common-sense report beon given. Never has the committee shown greater knowledge of
both tho social and economic order,
and of religious conditions, than was

dealing with tho liquor act was very
emphatic, the Conference declaring itself as being absolutely pledged to total prohibition. The new act was stated to bo Inconsistent anl illogical, and
In some ways failing to win the support of even many of its chief supporters during tho campaign. Many of Its
inconsistencies and impossibilities
wore pointed out, and tho DOed for
continued organisation of the prohibition forces was emphasized.
It was also apparent to alt that
there was a real desire for religious i
development, but certain conditions'
were existing which wero powerful
hindrances to successful evangelism.
It was pointed out by tho committee
that the question of social amusement
.md the standardizing of such was a
subtle danger. The educational attainments of many high schools were
jeopardized by tho accepted conditions.
\ wave or pleasure and sport and of
questionable amusement had swept over the country, and even Christian

Vflth tlie coming into operation ot
the liquor control measure within two
weeks or so in this province, the working out of which devolves upon tho
liquor commissioners, a board of
three members, several points havo
come to light of late which can scarcely be said to inspire any great confidence on the part of thinking peoplo
n the measure. Criticism is direc-
M'ted at the board on several scores,
not as any persona! criticisms, but ra-
ther at the government officials to
whom the board fs tied by being responsible "to tho lleutenaut-goveruor-

that tho liquor board ls only bypoth-
etically au Independent body.
The Vancouver Sun recently
brought to light tho details of a pur-
chase deal which was put through by
the government, by which jt acquired
for the sum of $160,000 a warehouse
to be used for storage purposes by tho
liquor board. Tho Sun charges that
first of all the government overpaid
Mr. Chas. E. Campbell, a prominent
Vancouver Liberal, and owner of the
building, not less than $67,600, It arrives at this figure by having an In-
dfspendent valuation made of the property In question by the Vancouver
Heal Estate Exchange, n reputable body of which all the prominent Vancouver real estate firms are members.
They have given a valuation of tho
property at JS2.500. The property
actually assessed by tlie city of
Vancouver at something over $60,000,
The Sun thereupon addresses tho
following questions to the Premier of

The period for taking the decennial census is here again,
und it is interesting to note that
Ihis institution dates back to
the dawn of civilization. Moses
numbered the Children of Israel thirty-five hundred years
ago. Five hundred years before
Ihis even there is a record of a
statistical investigation having
been held among the Babylonian people, while Chinese history shows an attempt to have
been made to number the populace about the year 3000'B.C,
and from other sources it is
known Ihat there was a similar
attempt on the part of the Egyptians about the year 2500 B.
C. The taking of a census in
the year 1717 B.C. by David
achieved some evil notoriety
from the fact that It is recorded how it provoked divine
wrath, and this was cited In
comparatively modem times as
au argument against attempt
ing a complete enumeration of
the people. Solon, thc famous
Athenian lawgiver introduced
the census into Greece, and it
was also adopted by Julius
Ceasar in the Roman Empire
The Emperor Charlemagne in
the ninth century took an en
umeration of his domains, and
the well-known DomeBday Book
of William the Conqueror is ce-
lebrated in British History as
one of the most famous of mediaeval census takings.
" In connection with the census
now being taken in Canada,
there are many questions to be
answered, and some will wonder what motive could prompt
these interrogations,
In   connection   with   these
somewhat elaborate and searching series of inquiries the following points should be clearly
understood:   That no question
has been inserted merely for the
gratification of curiosity or because  the  Information  would
be   interesting,  but  only   because It has a bearing on basic
social or economic conditions,
The answers given by the individual are absolutely confidential, every employee of the census being under oath and penalty against revealing any individual item, antl the Bureau   of
Statistics itself being forbidden
to issue any   statement   that
would lay bare any   personal
matter.   Though the name   of
each person is taken down this
is not for the purpose ot associating the individual with any of
the facts that are recorded, but
merely aB a check on the accuracy of the enumeration.     The
census is first and last for statistical purposes and cannot be
made the basis of any direct administrative action.   Let lt al-
bo be noted that census enumerators are required to use courtesy aud tact ln collecting the
answer a census question is penalized by statute.

OTTAWA.—The Budget debate just
concluded ls the best that parliament
has heard for some years. Tliere aro
some observers who may disagree
with this opinion, but a lew considerations will show that it is quite warranted. True, many uf the speeches
havo been dull—some very dull—but
on the other hand one must go far
back to recall four better or even us
good speeches in a budget debate as
those of the Prime Minister, Mackenzie King, Crerar aud Dr. Clark.
During the war the budget was discussed n a formal manner. Whatever
the government wanted it got without
question. The last mun and the last
dollar principle was all persuasive in
getting money and in silencing critic-
Ism of expenditure. For two years
after the Armistice the war was made
to bear responsibility for the heavy
financial load, and there was much
justification for this. It is a sign of
returning "normalcy," as' President
Harding would say.
Going back to pre-war days, after
the defeat of Fielding In 1911 the Liberals had not u good financial critic.
A. K. Maclean filled the gap, but he
didn't shine as Cartwrlght or Foster
used lo do. The reason Is a temperamental une. the member for Halifax
not being of a naturally critical nature. When Foster was out of the
House tlie Conservatives in opposition
hail their own troubles in producing a
financial critic. Sir Edmund Osier
wus tried one year, and because Of his
financial standing many thought that
a find was about to bo uncovered.
Strange as it may seem, able financiers do not always make the best
finance ministers, much less the best
financial critics.
Hon. T. A. Crerar must be given
credit for delivering undoubtedly the
most effective criticism of a Budget
heard during the last ten years. Some
may think it impossible that he was
more effectlvo than Fielding and yet it
is so. Today Fielding stands In parliament, not as a critic, but as one
tendering advice and giving counsel,
drawn from the experience of over
forty years of political life. He serves
both the country and his party well,
but age naturally dulls tho edge of criticism.
Crerar's speeches this session have
stamped tho National Progressive
leader as one of the best informed
members on tho practical side of tlie
country's affairs. His wide experience
in big business naturally gives him a
ready Insight Into this feature of the
nation's affairs; whllo his effectiveness Is increased by u mass of thoroughly up-to-date information.
By nature Crerur ls not as good a
critic as some other men, he having an
agreeable, sunny disposition thnt inclines lilm to co-operate rather than
to oppose. But on tliis occasion he
had been stung Into action by tho caustic criticism of the Prlmo Minister,
and his characterization of the Progress! vo group as a dilapidated annex
of thu Liberal party. Had It not been
for theso observations, which got under Crerar's skin, It is improbable
that he would have made nearly as effective a speech us he did.

point of sheer ability, it would be ilif-

Ih'pt. of l-Mucntlon Announces
Some Alterations Alintlntf
Public mtil High Schools
xForty-one new schools have been
opened by tho department of education in tlie province since July 1
1920. Hon. Dr. J. D. MacLean, provincial secretary und minister of education! lias pointed out recently. Besides thirteen now schools or additions
have been authorized and nre going up
and seventy-eight new institutions,
towards which tho department has
made grants, have been erected or are
In course of building.
Mr. S. J. Willis, superintendent of
education, also pointed out how large
tlie task of conveying children to and
from Hie schools in country districts
has become and shows that   sixteen
it must be said that in the present
one, the back-benchers developed au
unusually large number of -good
points. There is something to b6
said against tho existence of a number of groups in parliament, but It
must be admitted that a third party Is
in a position to advance constructive
Ideas, and that to an extent that a
regular opposition is not. Rightly or
wrongly tlie business of a regular opposition is to oppose, and this attitude
dominates its whole discussion of policy. A third .party will rarely oppose
all that u government does. If it amounts to anything at all, It will en-
denvor to be" constructive iu order to
make good.
It. Is surprising that the group of
government priva'e membors from the
prairies had so little to say in the debate. Hr. Cowan spoke and quite
fluently, but the rest, were strangely
silent. This Ib the more surprising
when it is recalled that many of them
can speak well. Politically this ls a
mistake, for thc prairie representation
is growing so raphliy that a strong endeavor should bo made to Influence
such opinion through debate In the
House. Many, of course, think that
the Prime Minister's speech covered
all the ground, and It did; but lt Is a
good sign in a representative when on
an important occasion he is willing to
give a reason for the faith that is in
him. One may have his own opinion
of tlie value of most political speeches;
but after all is said and done a politician is judged possibly more by what
he said than what he does. In practice the average M.P. can't do a very
great deal, but he Is expected to say a
great deal about what others do.
Dr. Cowan being the only prairie
member that the Westerners sitting to
the left of the Speaker had to shoot at,
naturally received much attention, but
being an old campaigner he stood It
pretty well. Maharg's speech being his
last in parliament, he made lt a telling
presentation of the needs of the West,
his position as head of the Saskatchewan drain Growers enabling him to do
this to advantage. Hold's effort contained much good material. Johnston
wlio has lmd a good session did especially well, as also did H. O. Wright.
Gould, who has developed into a very
ready speaker, wound up tlie cases for
the Progressives. White, Alberta's only Liberal member, mado a statement
for the farmers of his province. The
task of replying to these fell upon Dr
Tolmie of llrltlsh Columbia.
Glancing ovor the House lt Is apparent that tho eloquence Is quite
widely distributed. With the Prime
Minister, Crerar and Dr. Clark, the
areus havo this privilege, with a total
cost in this school year of $11,002.
Important announcements are made
for tho first time ub to new band-
books and facilities, which will come
into operation when the public schools
open next fall.
Syke's Elementary Composition will
be replaced by Alexander & Mowat's
Elementary Composition (Gage ft Co.)
The new book is now in UBe ln all the
western provinces. A new History of
England has been prescribed, namely,
"History of England for public schools
With War Chapter" (MacMltlan ft Co.)
Tho text books in arithmetic, Books I.
and ii., by Smith ft Roberts, are being revised.
In writing tho former copy book
system will bo discontinued and an
up-to-date method of teaching by instruction substituted. Realizing that
tho old copy book plan has not given
satisfaction from the standpoint of
either Interest or results, tho education department, ton months ago, commenced an Investigation of the most
prominent writing systems.
As a result of theso Investigations
and u close observation of tho trend
of progress during tho past fow years
in the field of writing, it became apparent that the muscular movement
method of writing ls now the standard
method used by practically all the
public and high schools and business
colleges of Canada and ot the United
States. Particularly noteworthy is
thefact that in all business colleges
where inteuslve training is given ln
penmanship, this method has displaced all others both because of the Blip
erior results accomplished and because
of the present day demand for a rapid
legible and free, style ot writing.
A complete system has been worked
out by Mr. H. B. MacLean ot the
Vancouver Normal School who, for a
number of years has made a study of
this subject. Mr. MacLean was associated with the Education Depart
ment in making these investigations
and has presented a plan which Is considered to be better adapted to the
needs ot the schools than any other
examined. This method will go into
operation at the beginning of the next

In the subject on the part of both pupil and teacher, Mr. MacLean has
worked out a system of pupils' certificates and awards to be granted in
each ot the classes on the attainment
of a certain standard ot writing. Further particulars will be announced
respecting tho advantages that will bo
offered to teachers ot the province
through a free correspondence training course which will consist of a
thorough training In the technique
and pedagogy ot this method of writing, leading to a penmanship diploma.
In the first year of high school
Stevenson's "Kidnapped" will replace
Scott's "Ivanhoe" In the literature
course, and the Dominion high Bchool

The British Columbia Correspondence School was established ln April,
1919, for tbe primary purpose of assisting those men and boys who are
engaged In coal mining and wbo desire
to prepare themselves for certificates
of competency under the Coal Mines
Regulation Act of this province.
Since its inception 125 students have
enrolled in the various courses, which
consist of a preparatory course for
boys in English, arithmetic and drawing; and further advanced studies for
managers, overmen, Bhotllgbters and
mine surveyors. The men who take up
tbe more technical instruction do so
with the intention of taking the examinations given by the board of examiners of the mines department.
In addition to the above, the department deemed lt wise to Inaugurate a correspondence course suitable
for those children wbo live in isolated districts beyond the reach of thc
public schools. So far 243 pupils of
various ages living at lighthouses and
other isolated parts of the province
have enrolled. These are supplied
with free tuition and textbooks. The
subjects covered are the same as those
taught ln the public schools up to and

The peace-tlmo program of the Red
Cross League of Nations, to which the
Canadian Red Cross is a signatory,
embraces and embodies the very important platform of Red Cross instruction to the children. This branch ls
known as the Junior Red Cross, and
in Canada this Is the medium through
which the Canadian Red Cross is endeavoring to induce among the children and young people Red Cross instruction and activities of an educational nnd social value. In this sit-
mitlun, the Red Cross alms to enlist
the services of the children and young

much of the Hed Cross support of the
future. With the arm approval of
the Provincial Department of Education and the various boards of school
trustees, tho Society purposes establishing Junior Red Cross branches
throughout, the province with separately organized units iu all the larger schools. This being done, lt is
proposed to crualo a "Junior Red Cross
Sick Chllilreus' Fund," which will be
devoted to providing hospital treatment and care for sick children who
are not in a position to receive proper hospital treatment. In the extension of this branch, it Is also proposed to provide country vacations for
delicate or convalescent city children
who are otherwise unable to secure
auch a holiday. The ultimate purpose of the Junior Fund, however, will
be to assist in the establishment of a
Chlldrens' Hospital or Ward in this
province so that our sick children
may be assured, at all times, or the
very best care and attention from
nurses and doctors, specializing iu
chlldrens' work.
From this Junior Branch of the Red
Cross big results are expected. Children, properly enthused In any good enterprise are oblivious to obstacles and
difficulties. Few persons can refuse
the plea of a child. None will refuse
the chlldrens' plea for children.

Cranbrook, B.C. - June 10th to 16th
(By Uev. ll. o. MacBeth, M.A., In tho
Vancouver Province.)
The following eulogistic reference
to Mr. Chas. Malr, East Kootenay
pioneer, and until lately a resident of
Fort Sttele, wll be read with Interest
by all those who have enjoyed his acquaintance:
One hot but exhilarating day up In
the East Kootenay or Windermere
country, I motored over from Craubrook to Fort Steele, on the way up
towards Golden. The "fort" was not
au imposing walled fortress, but
few log buildings now deserted, as is
most of tho town, which was once a
bustling enough place. The fort, how
ever, had historic interest because it
was built in 1887 hy the redoubtable
Superintendent Sam Steelo of the
Mounted Police, who after service to
tho Empire that earned him knight-
hood, died In England wliere lio had
gone In command of tho Second Canadian Dlvli ton in the recent Great
It was owing to some rather lawless proceedings un the part of an
Indian chief named Isadoro that
Steele, with Inspectors Wood aud
Huot and 75 of his famous riders ln
scarlet and gold, had been ordered
Into tho Kooteuay where they erected
headquarters and soon secured peace
and order after tlie usual police- manner.
Fort Steele, too, was near the still
more historic Wild Horse Creek
where, years before, hundreds of miners had swarmed in successful search
for the precious metal that is the standard of monetary value In the world.
Malr and Scliultz
But my visit to Fort Steelo that
summer day was not on account of
these elements in tho early history of
the locality, though they had their attraction, but because, residing there
largely for climatic advantages, was
Mr. Charles Malr, a famous Canadian
writer and a passionutely loyal Imperialist. I can recall Mr. Malr from the
days of my early boyhood ln the Red
River country. I remember seeing
him tn company with Ur. (lato Sir
John) Scliultz, that intense Canadian
statesman who had much to do with
the early history of tho west and to
whose insistent efforts in tho Dominion senate in later years we owo so
largely the opening up of tho Peace
River region.
In appearance Dr. Scliultz and Mr.
Malr were ln somewhat considerable
contrast. Scliultz was of almost giant
proportions, tall and powerfully built
and very stately of carriage. Malr
was equally distinguished In his way
but ho was less In stature though ot
very strong broad-shouldered build
and ruddy countenance.
When I began to know Malr in a
personal way, his fair hair and moustache were getting prematurely grey.
Today, be Is In his 81st year but having always lived an outdoor active
frontier life he is remarkably strong,
vigorous and quick ln his movements.
His letters, whicli I have the privilege of receiving from time to time,
are literary gems in style and full
of up-to-date observations on the events of the hour.
Prisoners of Kiel
Scliultz and Malr were much together In those early days, as I grew to
know later, because they were ardent
Canadians who resented tho attempt
of Louis Rlel to prevent Canada from
taking possession of the weBt. They
were both taken prisoners by the rebel leader who had practically all the
firearms In the country at his disposal and both were marked out for vengeance, But they both escaped from
Imprisonment. Scliultz, after being
concealed from Kiel in my father's
house tor some days, secured the services ot a loyalist native, Joseph Monk-
man, and took a hard snowshoe trip
to Duluth, and thence to Toronto.
Mair went from Portage la Prairie
with that powerful frontiersman, J. J.
Setter, and by snowshoes also reached
St. Paul. They all met in Toronto and
there with the leadership of Col. Geo.
T. DeniBon, the present magistrate In
Toronto; W. A. Foster, Haliburton,
and others, not only roused Ontario
to the condition of things in the west
but established firmly the "Can-
ada First" party which had such t
strong influence for imperial unity in
a critical era. Canada and the empire
are under deep obligation to that
group of strong meu than many in our
day realize. Scliultz. Malr and others
from the west returned to Bee the Kiel
regime in Fort Garry come to an end
and to take in the formative periods
ot our history.
Author of Tecnmseh
Malr from his youth in Lanark
county in Ontario, had been deeply
interested in literary undertakings
And it must be gratifying to him who
always contended that Canada should
build up a literary instinct with her
own genius and Bhot through by the
splendid light of her own land to find
that clubs of Canadian authors flourish tn all our cities and have their

cer, was the grandfather of ths present lieutenant-governor of British Columbia.
An Indian Patriot
Mair portrays Tecumseh as a fervent lover of his own race wlio dies
with a prayer "0 Mighty Spirit, shelter—save—my people." By his own
request the chief's braves bury blm In
the woods in a grave that no one has
ever found. And there is a true touch
of chivalry in tho fact that Harrison,
the American general who had heard
of Tecumseh's death, wished to find
the body and give it fitting military
burial. But soldiers who were sent
out returned and said:
"Tecumseh's body ean not be found;
'twas borne away by friends who
would not «ii,me the place if tiiey were
tortured." And the drama closes with
Harrison's fine words:
"Sleep well, Tecumseh, In thy unknown grave,
"Thou mighty savage,   resolute   and
"Thou master and strong spirit of tbe

"Ycarner over Wyandot and Cherokee.

mountains and rivers and plains are
everywhere. He has u fino study ln

As already remarked, tlie   primary
task uf the census Is the enumeration
and description of every man, woman
and child in Canada.   Oood business
dictates tlmt when so large an organization as ihis requires has once been
created, it should he put to every available purpose.   In other words, tho
"overhead" must earn its maximum.
The census therefore should deal not
only with tho people themselves, but
directly with tho people's institutions
und affairs, insofar us the latter can
bo properly brought within its scope.
Approximately fifty per cent, of tho
population of Canada Is dependent upon agriculture, and the most expensive
part of the census organization is that
of the rural districts.   For agriculture
moreover, tlie ordinary population enumerator proves a satisfactory field
agent) moat of the process of agriculture being familiar ones and such as
On enumerator who lives In an ugri-
fUltural district can well cover. Hence
the decennial census of tiio Canadian
people Is a census of population   and
agriculturo, that Is, a comprehensive
survey of tho Canadian people themselves and of their primary Industry.
The schedules used ln tho census are
fivo in number dealing respectively
with (1) Population, (2) Agriculture,
(H)  Live Stock, fruit growing, etc.,
(4) Industrial and Trading concerns,
und (5) Blindness and Deaf-Mutism.
Merely to state the questions asked on
these would be impossible here.   The
imputation schedule carries some thlr-
ty-flvo columns, recording for   each
person tho name, family, kind of dwelling,   age,   sex,   conjugal  condition,
birthplace, citizenship, education, occupation, etc., in necessary detail. Tho
schedulo relating to agriculture   was
druwn up in consultation with Dominion and Provincial Agricultural Departments and other authorities, and
will olicit a wealth of Information on
such features as farm acreages, land
values, buildings, implements, crops,
fertilizers, farm labor, orchars, small
fruits, farm gardens, live stock, poultry, animal products, forest products,
laud tenure, irrigation, drainage, cooperative marketing, etc.   Tho schedule on industrial and   business concerns collects only the name, address
and class of each; this is for the use
of tho detailed annual Inquiry conducted through correspondence by tho Bur-
euu as previously described.   The record of the blind und of deaf-mutes
is to facilitate the work of educational
uud other institutions for these classes.
One object of tho consus being to determine parliamentary representation,
tho act directs that census districts
shall correspond us nearly as possible
to tho federal contltuencles for the
time being.
For the remote and seldom penetrated regions or Ungava, Northern Ontario and the west, tho organization of
the fur trading companies und of tho
various church missions havo been en-J
guged. In other similar regions the
lloyal Canadian Mounted Police will]
take tho census, whilst the agents of
tho Iudluu Department will perform
u like service for tlie Indian population
on reserves and elsewhere. An officer of the Department of the Interior
will descend tho Mackenzie river, for
purposes of the census. Even ln districts tbat are closer, there remain a
largo number of casta where pack
trains must be organized, steamers
chartered and similar Bpeclal means
employed to ensure that no section of
thu country escapes enumeration,
For tho compilation of tho census
un extra staff of 350 to 400 clerks will
bo engaged at Ottawa.
It is expected that from two to fivo
weeks from Juno lst will suffice in
normal localities for tlie completion
of tho field work. After the third or
fourth month It should be possible to
give out the first results for many cities, towns and countries, otc. As to
when the final count by provinces for
tho entire Dominion will bo available,
so many unforseen contingencies are
possible that prophecy Is dangerous,
but it Is expected that five or six
innoths should enable a close approximation to be made.
Altogether, tho census will cost about two million dollars. Tho amount
sot aside this year ls about one million
und three quarters, but thore was a
yote of $50,000 last year for equipment and preparatory work, ond another quarter of a million will probably be required in 1922 and 1922 and
1923 to finish.
