Strong Opposition to Land Registry Act by Conservative Member Hay ward, from Cowfchan
VICTORIA, B.C., March 4.—Shorn
ot the pomp and ceremony that marked the opening of the session, the

two earlier sessions of the day and
when Lieutenant-Governor Patterson
entered the chamber the labors of the

S3 bills passed, which was read by the
clerk ot th house and given assent to
by his honor. At the close of this recital the supply bill was presented to

At tho conclusion ot the address
the lieutenant-governor left the chair
and Mr. Speaker occupied the chair of
office on which he has sat through
many tedious hours during the last
weeks. At the close ot the announcement ot prorogation the house rose
and sang "God Save the King," thus
ending the second session of the thirteenth parliament of British Columbia.
Speech from Throw
The speech from the throne at the
prorogation of the legislature this
evening read as follows:
"ln relieving you of your legislative
duties, I am convinced I voice the
sentiments of yourselves and the people of British Columbia In expressing
deep regret at the great loss the empire has sustained by the death of the
Earl of Mlnto. As governor-general
of Canada and In his long connection
with tho Dominion, lie was universally
respectfd for his high sense of duty,
his devotion to his country and his
ability as a statesman. These qualities were remembered by the many
honors conferred upon him for his
service and the important position he
was called upon to fill.
Important Legislation
"It affords me pleasure to convey to
you my high appreciation of the careful attention you have given to the
important questions submitted for
your consideration.
"The authority given mc for the
raising of a provincial loan will be exercised with due regard for economy
and no as to enable works already under way to be prosecuted as well as
others necessary for the continual
growth of the province to be undertaken.
"In furtherance of the engagements
already entered into with respect to
the Canadian Northern Pacific railway
and the Pacific Oreat Eastern railway
and the Kettle valley railway, the
measures approved by you will, I
trust. Inure lo the benefit ol the people
of the province.
"Other important enactments In tho
public Interest are those dealing with
municipal loans and tor the better
control of companies deealing with
trust funds.
1-umhInkIoh Report* Valuable
"The conclusions arrived at after
careful Investigation by the royal
commission on agriculture and labor
will no doubt greatly assist the legisla
ture ln Its consideration In the near
future ot these all Important inter-
'The prompt steps taken to encourage the discovery of radium and to
make the store of this mineral as far
as possible available for the benefit of
humanity must meet with general approval.
"The amendments to the school act,
extending the scope of education and
providing for the teaching of technical education, are Intended to keep
pace with the demands of modern life.
"I thank you for the liberal supply
granted for the administration of public affairs and In taking leave of you
venture to express the hope that your
labours may prove ot the greatest
benefit to the province of British Columbia."
Wanted Act Held Over
Objection to the Land Registry act
which lias been forming for several
day found expression in the legislature today when W. H. Hayward,
member for Cowiclian, moved that the
entire act should be held over until
the next session of the legislature.. He
argued that owing to the late date at
which the legislation had been Introduced, it had been impossible to give
the ineeasure adequate discussion. He
said that 35 amendments had been
submitted to the house since the printing of the bill, but that the members
had been afforded no opportunity of
deliberating the provision*-, proposed.
Mr. Hayward said that he knew of
no act on thc statute books that had
caused more critics!., than tlie act
under discussion and he was sure that
while the attorney-genernl might understand Its meanings, that none of
the members of tho legislature knew
Hon. W. J. Bowser, in reply, said
that It was a popular thing to attack
the administration of his department
and he quoted a large folio of statutes
to show the splendid results by the
officials of the land registry department In tho branches throughout the
province. He paid a tribute to the
subordinates of his ollice, for whom,
lu> said, he was glad to hold a brief
as they were not able to refnte the
charges of Incompetence and laxity
levied against them as they were not
members of the house, and he said
that when the time came that he could
not attend to the business ot his own
department without outside Interference, he would resign his portfolio.
In supporting the motion of the
member for Cowiclian, Parker Williams taunted the attorney-general
with an attempt to conduct the business of the house as If it were his own
department that he was dealing with
He spoke of the method of introducing bills at a late hour nnd following
their admission adding a large number
of amendments which had never appeared on the order paper and whicli
were Introduced at so late an hour
tliat they gave the opposition little
opportunity tor analysis of their provl
sions. The bill was finally read a
third time, the member for Cowiclian
still objecting when the final reading
was put.
Will (over Tracks and EiUre Yards
With Are Lights
Tiie new electric light system for
the C.P.R. was cut In last Thursday
aud on March 1st the company lnau*
urateil their own system, cutting off
the city service which they have been
using for the past many years.
Tho new electric power plant Is
built ou the north side of the shops
and are very compact, neat and clean
iiuarters. Tbe floor is of maple and Is
poltskd and brightened until tt would
make a very pleasing parlor floor; all
the machinery is the latest and best
that money could buy.
The new engine Is a Robb-Arm-
strong, iiO-horse power, coupled to a
Westlnghouse generator 600 volts, 56
amperes, 3 phase, 60 cycles, 300 revolutions per minute and 58 kilowatt.
The exciter Is 125 volt and travels
1750 revolutions per minute.
The switchboard is the latest, being
made of marble and carries switches
for each seperate line, of which there
are three besides an emergency switch
which in case of trouble at the plant,
the city power can Immediately be
switched In, Another switch also provides, in case of trouble at the city
plant, that the full strength ot thc
C.P.R. plant can be switched onto the
city service. The small generator at
the city plant, with the help of thc
C.P.R., could carry the full city load in
cases of emergency.
The metre at the plant shows what
each building Is consuming. At present the plant will employ only one
electrician for night service. Mr.
Robertson, of Calgary, at present having charge of the plant. If it Is needed during the day, Mr. James Boyce,
the locomotive foreman handles the
The new plant, outside ot poles and
wires, has cost about $3,000 for Installation and so supplying the company
at a eoBt of about 4%c per kilowatt
hour. The light Is very bright and
has proven a very satisfactory service.
It is the Intention of the company to
duplicate the present plant ln the fall,
giving an alternate engine for both day
and night service. The additional
equipment will adjoin tbe present
plant on the north.
There are at present 200 lights being used but the plant Is fully capable
of handling 2,000 lights. The lights
have at present been installed in the
C.P.R. cottages, Ry. Y.M.C.A., C.P.R.
telegraph offices throughout the shops
freight sheds, yard office, at the station and In the general divisional offices upstairs. There are only a few-
arc lights being used at present, but
it is the intention of the company to
cover the entire yards as well as the
tracks on both sides of the station for
some distance as rapidly as possible
with arc lights; which, when completed will Illuminate that part of the
city to a much greater extent than
has ever before been done and will
make the city appear much more attractive to Incoming passengers.

Young   Man   Succamb*   te   Injuries
Kecehed la Accident na Logging Railway.
Earl Park, the son of Mr. and Mrs.
W. M. Park of this city, who met with
an accident while working on a Staples' lagging train at Wycliffe last
Thursday, succumbed to his Injuries
at one o'clock Saturday morning at
the St. Eugene hospital.
A coroner's inquest was held by
Coroner J. H. M. Bell on Monday
morning, the jury finding the following verdict:-
"That thc deceased died at the
St. Eugene hospital on Saturday
morning from Injuries to both legs
received accldently by the wheels of
n cur and as no one witnessed the accident we are unable to tell exactly
after what manner It occurred and we
do not attach blame to anyone."
Earl Park was born In Ontario In
1S93 and moved with his parents to
Cranbrook about six years ago, having resided here ever since. For the
past three years he has been working
as a C.P.R. brakeman and was employed on the logging train for the
past three or four months.
Undertaker W.R.Beattle took charge
of tho body, the funeral services being
held on Monday afternoon at 3 o'clock
from the family residence to the
Presbyterian church, where Rev. W.
K. Thomson conducted the last sad obsequies. The funeral was largely attended, the Brotherhood of Railway
Trainmen and the Knights of Pythias
attending ln a body. The floral offerings were profuse and beautiful
and were given by friends both In
and outside the city.
The suddenness of the catastrophe
which overtook this young man and
claimed his life, is an added sorrow
to his grief stricken parents and relatives. To be cut down In the prime
of life, when It Is full of promise and
youthful, boyant, manly vigor, is
ono of the Incomprehensible mysteries of the workings of Divine Providence . and an added sting which
Death can bring to all.
Christian Men and Their Relation to
the Ml-xiniian Micment .Strengthened l>> Forward Campaign.
Systematic contribution und special
campaign was the keynote of the
speeches heard ut the banquet last
Friday evening, given In honor of the
Laymen's Missionary Movement at thc
Methodist church. There was a good
attendance present und all were seated
at the tables shortly after six o'clock
and a considerable time was consumed
in partaking of tiie good viands provided. Mr. N, A. Wallinger occupied the
chair and introduced tiie speakers.
The first speaker introduced wbb Mr.
R. M. Hamilton, secretary of the Layman's Mlsslmiry Movement in the
Presbyterian church of Canada.
The farm and home were all engaged ln making men, suld Mr. Hamilton, and in tlie long run tlie work of a
statu Is tlu- work of tlie men of that
state. It was not Its size, its wealth.
or tbe rich resources tbat brought
Britain to tlie fqre, it was her men and
the nation tliat falls to produce men
falls, and must ultimately fall, he said
Simillarly, went on Mr. Hamilton, tf
the great work in the home and foreign missions fails, the work of God
falls. Steps sou Id be tuken to Improve
on everything that is undertaken and
succeeding generation should Improve
on the one that went before. Forward
movements such as tiie one under discussion helped toward Improvement
just as the otlier great movements did
and It added great strength to the
church, churchmen should minister
to God by ministering to their fellow-
men and to make men, they must first
of all be found, nnd then ministered to.
He referred to the great problem that
confronted Canada in her fast growing cities nnd iter sparsely populated
plains. He closed with an appeal to
tils audience to "Gut your shoulder
under the other fellows burden-
that Is what the great missionary
movement is doing.
The chairman then Introduced Mr.
H. K. Caskey, the Inter-denomlnational
secretary of the Laymun's Missionary-
Movement In Canada, who choose
"Manhood" for his subject. He said
that men were the greatest asset of
Canada. The government pays $4.00
per man to bring them to Canada and
then leaves it to the church to make
good citizens of them. The government pays large sums of money to
train men for Impossible war but gives
nothing to train immigrants for good
ln his appeal to the audience, Mr.
Caskey stated thnt a sum commensurate with the huge sums which are being spent on thc navy, tlie military
and education should be spent on the
home and foreign mission undertaking
in order to make men of high Ideals of
the thousands of immigrants who were
annually coming to this country and
to assist In the uplift which was being
undertaken by the missionary movement In foreign fields.
Dr. J. Endicott, .secretary of the
Board of Missions for thc Methodist
church was the next speaker.
Mr. Endicott dealt with his years of
experience in western China and the
great enlightenment tliat was wrought
through the foreign missions. "It Is
absolutely necessary that Christianity
be carried to the ends of tlie earth,'
he said. "To limit its expansion la to
kill It, if it In to be sustained any*
where, it must he carried everywhere.'
"Dont you Laymen, during your campaigns, let donors to your campaigns
believe that they are philantropists—
you arc thc phllnntropists," said Dr.
Endicott. Eighty per cent of the money which was given for world purposes
was given by the Anglo-Saxons, fully
80 per cent of the people engaged In
the world work were Anglo-Saxons
and thc Anglo-Saxons were the people
to carry the gospel of Christ to the
ends of thc earth." he declared.
The Anglo-Saxons never started
out to produce an empire such as the
present British empire, but our people
could not stay at home, nnd now for
three hundred years we liave made a
great story. We can truly produce
men as brave and as true as were ever
produced," and he went on to paint an
eloquent picture of the heroism of the
late Capt. Scott, who died In an attempt
to reach the south pole. The explorers were still In the nation and, he said
the missionaries' work commenced
where the explorers ended. The explorers found continents and the missionaries told the people of the new
found lands how they could find themselves,
He went on to explain why be
thought the Christian religion should
be sent abroad just ns the learning,
science, education and commerce are
carried abroad to tlie unchristian
world. The Chinese religion was
crumbling and tli chinamen did not
know how to patch It up and a great
work was open to the Christian missionary In that field, he explained,
They were people of devotion and
deserved the best religion In the world.
Ho had seen many lifted from a degraded lite and stand the test of martyrdom for the Christian religion and
he waa confidant that they would ac
cept ft. He closed with an appeal to
his listeners to unite with the men
of the rest of Canada to stand for
iomcthing that was big and to bring
the Gospel of Jesus to the ends of the
Mr. W. A. Nisbet moved a hearty
otc of thanks ut the conclusion of
the speeches, which was seconded by
Mr. White; and on the motion being
promptly carried, tbe chairman took
occasion to express the thanks of those
assembled tor a most enjoyable evening. The meeting closed with the
benediction by Rev. W. K. Thomson.
The advantages of thc simultaneous campaign for every church proposed by the Layman's Missionary
Movement has the following advantag-
IT makes publicity easier.
Disseminates missionary knowledge
in a much broader way.
It is the day of co-operation. Tbe
world is attracted by evidence of unity and lack of waste.
The Y.M.C.A. building campaigns
have taught a lesson which the missionary campaign ought to profit by.
It Is easier to get money when others
are giving and talking about it.
It strengthens men's purpose in the
religious life when they see thc activity of others.
It Is easier to enlist lukewarm
churches when others are particularly
The Impact upon a town or city of
a simultaneous canvass Is most helpful.
It developes community leaders
who will do more than their own denominational work.
It Increases thc total volume uf
prayer, and means the dedication of
life and money.
The effect upon the church, as a
whole Is helpful.
It Impresses every one, both at
home and abroad, with the actual unity of the great Christian church.
Such a campaign for the evangelization of the world should mean the
conversion of multitudes at home.
lmmdlately following the settle
ment of the board of trade trouble, a
meeting ot Athalmer citizens was held,
F. Richardson in tbe chair.

I-ust Wednesday evening, Mr. Chas.
F. Nidd, gave an excellent Organ Recital ln the Methodist Church. Mr.
Nidd by his sensitive and aympathtlc
interpretation of many of the compositions of tbe great masters, delighted
a very large audience, the church being filled.
It would be difficult to Choose the
number most appreciated, but his
rendition of the "Storm" by Wlegand,
charmed the audience with the wonderful contrasts of the sweet strains
of nature's calm, followed by deep
thunderlngs ot the petal base in the
breaking of the storm.
There were two otber numbers particularly appreciated, namely, "A Day
In Venice" and Mendelssohn's "Two
Songs without Words."
Mrs. Geo. F. Stevenson ably assisted Mr. Nidd witb two vocal solos
rendered with her usual charming
ability. Tbe solos were "Hoeanna"
and "With Verdure Clad," both being
very much appreciated.
One of the finest musical evenings

say nothing of tho horde of laborers
who last year idled through the summer months nt au expense to the government of something like $150,000.
Evidently there will be no election

voters cut off the payroll. If Premier
Mdlride doesn't land the high com
missionerBllip he will he forced into
more than u grand-stand play and a
few parrot-cries to win Uie next election.

steadily for the past several weeks
and have an Interesting report to
present. This mutter is of such moment to the citizens tliat u capacity
house should be present to hear the
progress tliat thu committee has been
enabled to muke.
There will bo u sigh of relief go up
throughout the province on the receipt ot the news tliat the legislature
has prorogued. The present session
has been severely censured for many
errors of commission us well as of
omission. Bills were rushed through
wholesale at the last minute without
even the semblance of consideration
or debute. Staunch Conservative
members have criticised throughout
the session but McBride nnd Bowser
refused to listen nnd crammed their
measures through regardless. The
workaday people of the province will
be relieved to know thut they have
done no worse;, realizing tliat they
could not be expected to do any better.
Politicians see in the result the coming overthrow, not so much of Conservatism, but of McHrideism and Bow-
Bertem. The better element of the
Conservative party is revolting mid
thinking men are freely expressing
the opinion that tlie present government has long outlived Its usefulness.
A visit to Canada by a gentleman
who had been a president of tho United States would be at any time an
incident of more than ordinary interest, but lu the case of Mr. Taft, who recently passed a tew days at Toronto
and Ottawa, the attention of the public
wus peculiarly keen. An tnsignilicunt
few dared to say privately thnt It
would have been justifiable hud the
people ignored the visitor who In lilt-
capacity of resident llhd written to
his immediate predecessor in ollice
Intimating tlie Hkehood or Canada becoming an adjunct of the United
States. But It can ho said for the
audiences at Toronto and at the Capital that they received Mr. Tuft wltli all
the cordiality and liberality that becomes a democratic people. No person hearing this genial statesman will
ever afterwards think of accusing him
of malicious intent towards any individual or nation, und indeed instead
of causing a demonstration nt' aloofness, tln> visit or Mr.Taft will undoubtedly do much to further the friendly
relations existing between the Republic und the Dominion.—Canadian Magazine.
Liberal conventions ever held ln the
city, adopted the following strongly
worded, resolution :-
That this convention has learned
with grave alarm of the introduction Into the legislature of a bill to further
guarantee the bonds of the main line
of the C.N.R. to the extent of $10,000
a mile in addition to tho enormous
and overwhelming guarantees for
which the province is already responsible and in utter violation and disregard uf the pledges given by the gov-
Brnment to the country from time to
time. Such an action on the part o!
he government under the clrcum-
stances would constitute a monstrous
betrayal of the public interests and
in unprecedented act of treachery
which every citizen iu British Columbia should do everything In his power
to prevent.
"Resolved, therefore, that OiIh ton
ventlon seize the lirst opportunity tc
condemn the proposed action of tlu
government nnd calls upon all citizens of Hritish Columbia, without dis
tlnctlon of party, to make every effort
los.siblo to save the province fron:

ivhich have already grown so large at
to most seriously threaten Its (Inan

VICTORIA, Feb. 25.—The most uncomfortable day Sir Richard McBrldi
has ever spent since he became premier of tho province was put in today,
when u deputation of men. prominent
In the business life of Vancouv
and equally prominent in the ranks nf
the Conservative party here, rami
over to tell him and his colleagues n
few plain truths about the effect of
the railway aid bills on the fortunes
of the Conservative party and the Mc-
Brlde-Bowser government.
Sir Richard has worn u most har-
rassed nnd worried look all week, but
in the brief glimpse of him, caught In
tho house today, he was seen to be
wearing an absolutely haunted aspect
When the sitting opened, he and Mr
Bowser wore bent over, beads close
together, the premier talking hi low
tones and with earnest manner to his
attorney-general. Mr. Bowser did not
show any particular anxiety, but both
were; so deep ln conversation that two
or three times they failed to catch
their cue for routine business. Sir
Richard soon left the chamber and
was not Heen again until I! o'clock,
except Tor a minute or two at a time,
when ho drifted Into the cnninber and
nut again like nn unquiet spirit,

The monthly meeting of the Baynes
and district Farmers' Institute was
held on Thursday evening ln the
Adolph hall, when a scant attendance
mustered, owing to tho bad roads
caused by a long and heavy thaw.
The secretary, J. Radford, wus absent,
and J. Barnard, one of the directors,
acted under S. Morrow, tlie president,
in tbe chair. The replies trom tho
agricultural department to the letters
sent as directed by tho lust meeting
by the secretary ou several Important matters were read. With regard
to that requesting fuller Information
ou the conditions and proceeduro
necessary to secure nil available assistance and privileges In the matter
of erecting u suitable local produce

it wus Intimated that Mr. Winslow
would reply later. The secretary was
Instructed to follow the matter up
•rigorously und promptly.
From the letter regarding tho distinction between farmers' institutes
And agricultural associations, which
enables the latter to secure government grants while the former cannot,
it would appear that when a farmers'
institute decides to hold a fall fair It
automatically became an agricultural
A circular was read regarding the
free distribution to Institutes of government seeds for experimental plots,
to be conducted in accordance with
expert direction and supervision as far
as possible. Those present filled the
available requisitions.
As tho meeting was not sufficiently
representative it was decided to defer tbe discussion on the crop com-
ptitlons until the next meeting. Members should communicate with the
secretary their intentions before that
meeting, as the applications for seeds,
two per member, to ho planted for the
competition close by May 1. The sec
retary was instructed to write to the
proper quarter, representing that several members whose names had been
stmt in with others had so far received no printed matter as sent by
the department regularly to others.

Iperu'Ion on Lively Children Is Hue
cessful   Both to Live Separate
Tbe operation of separating the
'Siamese twins," Madetlene-Susanne,
■vho had been born united, was performed successfully In Paris on the
lib Instant. No such operation has
nken place In France since Dr. Doy-
*n, in 1902, separated the two Hindu
■hildrcn, Rndlca-Roodlca, who died of
uberculosls after the operation.
The twins operated upon were born
N'ov. 28, 1013. At birth they weighed
10 lbs. Both children apparently
healthy and were extremely lively,
Madellenc-Susanne were joined together In the region of the stomach.
The Juncture was of the most superficial kind and an X-ray examination
showed that there was no organ of
importance In the uniting membrane.
Today's operation was considered
justified by French Burgeons In view
of the tragic deaths of former pairs.
Eng, one of the original Siamese
twins, saw his brother, Chang, die by
his Bide, and himself died of horror
n a delirium a tew hours following.

Just at the same time, the final returns of thc January building permits
were published. These again tested
the optimists. Total permits for forty-two cities showed a decline of
about fifty per cent as compared with
January, 1913—six million last year
and three million this year. Further,
It Is again noticeable that the West
suffered more than the East. Eight
out of twenty-two eastern cities showed an Increase, and the total falling
off was under 25 per cent. Only three
of the twenty western cities showed
an Increase, and the total decrease
was approximately 75 per cent.
Certainly these are days when the
Canadian optimist needs to exercise
the best that Is in him. The bank
rato has gone down, money Is cheap,
stocks are rising tn price, and linan-
cvlul firms are issuing jolly annual reports. Nevertheless, down deep is the

Former Governor-tieneral uf Canada
Closes Long and Eventful Career
Lord Minto died ln London on Sunday, March 1, 1914, at 4 a.m.
Lord Mlnto was governor-gneral of
Canada from 1898 to 1904, and both
he and Lady Mlnto were popular with
all they met generally throughout the
Dominion, as well as at Hldoau hall.
In India, too, all niembrrs ot the
family were extremely popular, both
with Europeans and natives, though
Lord Mlnto was called upon to use a
strong hand in fighting the sedition
which was spreading throughout the
country, and twice, once at Barrack-
pore and once near Ahmedabad, attempts were made on his life with
Educated at Eton und at Trinity
college, Cambridge, Lord Melgund, as
be was then, entered the Scots Guards
in 1867. He was for a short time in
Paris during the communist rising in
1871, and three years later acted as
correspondent for the London Morning Post during the Carllst rising in
Spain in 1874. During the Russo-
Turklsh war he was assistant military
secretary with the Turkish army on
thc Danube, when he was present at
the bombardment of Nlkopolls and
the crossing of the Danube.
In 1879 he served as a volunteer on
the staff of Field Marshall Lord Roberts during tlie Afghan campaign, ln
1881 he accaompanled Lord Roberts
to South Africa as his private seore
tary. When the Egyptian war broke
out in 1882, Lord Melgund wns ap
pointed captain of the mounted infantry, was wounded ut the action of
Magfar, and afterward commanded
the mounted Infantry in Cairo, for
which he was mentioned In despatches and thanked In general orders.
When the Marquis of Ijuub'Iowih*
was appointed governor-general of
Canada in 1883, Lord Mclgund accepted a position ln which he won many
friends ln the Dominion, that of military secretary. This friendship was
accentuated by the action of Lord
Melgund when tlio Kiel rebellion
broke out. At once he gave up his
duties at Rldeau hall and became chief
of staff to Lleut.-Qcn. Sir Frederick
Mlddlcton, in which capacity he did
good service and endeared himself to
all the Canadian military men with
whom be came ln contact.
Lord Mlnto's active participation In
Canadian life began with his appointment as military secretary. In 1886

date of April 18th: "Halted. I sent
Lord Melgund out with Major Boulton
and his scouts to reconnoitre toward
the enemy. They returned In the evening having captured three Indians of
White Caps, the American Sioux band.
At the battle of Fish Creek, he found
himself two miles from the scene of
the encounter with the river lying between. Lord Melgund Improvised a
ferry and landed his force on the other side, but too late to take part In
the engagement.
Lord Melgund continued as chief of
staff, taking charge of the general arrangements. Just befor the decisive
battle at Butoche he was sent back to
Ottawa to lay tlte situation before the
government as to the necessity for
reinforcements as It was then thought
the campaign would last much longer
Major Boulton, In his "Reminiscences

apcaks of his departure:
"Wu were sorry to lose him for a

Inten-iIiiL   and   Well  Attended  Ses*
Nion Held ut  Hyeliffe Club
On Saturday, February 28th, Mr. A.
B. Smith president of tlie Cranbrook-
Fernle Farmers' Institute, presided
over a meeting in tin* Club house
Wycliffe. The visitors were surprised
to sit so many ladles und young people present, as tin* Cranbrook meetings would appear to tie 'for men only'
One thing is evident at any rule Trom
the meeting, viz.. the wives of Wy-
elllTe are well able to hold their own
in discussion with the fanners of
Cranbrook and when the much talked-
of vote comes along, should.be able to
handle It alright.
Id the poultry department, which
should belong to and lie governed by
the farmers' wife In any case, they
were able to speak from experience
and are determined to work along
lines that speak well for the 'hen
fruit1 as n product of the Kast Kootenay In the near future.
The President reviewed the work of
the Institute and invited those who
were not already members to Join as
soon as possible. The secretary spoke
of the Fall Fair. He enumerated tho
benefits to be derived from a fair by
the parties most interested:-the trades
men who subscribed generously and
the farmers, who up to thc present
have not played a very large part in
either the finances or the exhibition
end of the business. The farmers
were shown to have the most to gain
from a successful fair and were urged
to take a greater share In It this year.
II. H. McClure outlined a scheme
for destroying the gophers which are
ao destructive to the crop*. A club
Will b« form-Mi at tho ntxt meeting to
consider the best means of destroying them.
Dr. Rutledge gave a paper on Contagious diseases among l|ve stock
that should be helpful to liis hearers.!
Iu introducing the paper he expressed
an opinion that buulness men should '
take a more active Interst in tlie development of tiie farming Industry of
this district, as now the mining boom
inn! subsided ond the tfmber limits j
cut over something had to be found
to replace the prosperity that these fn-1
dustrles caused in the district for so
many years. Thc only lasting sub- i
stltute was Agriculture and tlie sooner
the lands were settled and Htocked and |
brought under cultivation the better
for ttie business people of the district.
He urged the business men to keep this
matter In mind In their dealings with
tiie settlers and those who were just
finding their feet as it were.
Mr. H. 11. McClure ably championed
the cause of Alfalfa as a recuperator
of the foil, a filler of the bank book,
a cleaner of the land and the stock
feeder's friend. He outlined the method of cultivation and offered to supply
inocculated soil to any who cared to
visit his farm and carry the same
(soil) away.
Secretary A. H. Webb emphasised
the following don'ts:
Don't breed mongrels. Don't attempt to hatch under detrimental conditions. Don't set eggs after May 10th,
Don't attempt to rear sickly or deformed chicks. Don't house tlie
chicks in dirty ill-ventilated coops.
Don't allow tlie young chicks to run
wltli the older stock. Don't feed as
for older stock, but fed milk at all
times. Don't run the sexes together
after you are able to distinguish them
A lively discussion followed this
Th next meeting will lie held in tin-

The Ladies' Guild gave :i concert in
Hlrtss hall, Friday, Feb. 20th, which
was very well attended, the hull being
comfortably filled, making the affair
a financial success; otherwise, it was
away below the average on account of
several Vaudeville Stars failing to appear. But the dance after was said to
be by one who was there, a 'humdinger' and very much enjoyed.
Tom Prentice, manager of the A.

the department will put on mounted
men in this district and the Idea is a
good one. The Tobacco Plains country is without Police protection at all
and they should have a man at Hoos-
vllle, also a customs and immigration
otllcer. Its about time the several departments would look Into these matters and apply the remedy. We believe in prevention—its the best law
in all things, when properly applied.

our braves had several shots on Ferule's goal but their goal keeper was
Invincible und every hit as good as a

report says, had frogs in their throats
and it was a very mild affair. We sin
coroly hope the commercial element or
this district, also the train-jumpers,
will excuse us handing our brnves any
more lemons this trip. Roth teams

Practical experiments have convinced Mr. Robt. Moud, a son of thut eminent man of sciences, the late Dr. Tug-
wig Moud, tluit tuberculosis Is not
convoyed by milk from cattle to human beings, aud further, that sterilized milk is a danger to children who
are fed on it, definitely predisposing
lin m to tuberculor Infection. The
(liiestlon Is one of considerable importance to dairymen, und indeed to
the general public. There has always
been a difference of opinion as to the
risk which human beings run ln consuming In small but regular quantities milk from tuberculous cows, but
hitherto the balance of scientific opinion has inclined strongly to tlie belief
that tuberculous milk Is a gruve menace to the public health, and moro es-
peeialy to the health of Infants. However, Mr. Mond became convinced In
the course of his Investigation thut
the danger Is practically non-existent,
and in order to put liis theory to the
test, he obtulncd some tuberculous
cows and drank their milk himself. To
use his own expression he "thrived on
it." But he adds that he would not
have dared to use tliat milk sterilized.
Tlie point of Mr, Mond's contention
Is that milk is a living fluid, Intended
by nature for Immediate consumption,
and that if boiled It undergoes a chemical change and loses its nutritive
value. He claims that the first essential Is refrigeration, which maintains the milk In Its original state,
and so Insures Its food value. In the
course or his Investigation, Mr. Mond
found that at the Children's Hospital,

who were known to have been fed exclusively from birth upon sterilized
or condensed milk—which, of course,
could be guaranteed tubercle-free—
developed tuberculosis of the bovine
type. Those children were always
weak and ill-nourished, and it was
suggested that this might be due to
tlieir having been fed upon a boiled as
against a fresh diet. As a control experiment a number of kittens were obtained and fed exclusively upon sterilized milk. They all died within a
Tilts seemed l<> justify the conclusion that sterilized milk is dangerous,
but the evidence is not entirely conclusively, For instance, a few years
ago Prof. A. S, Grunbaum, of the
School of Medicine in Leeds University,
carried out somewhat similiar experiments, and he found that kittens fed
on sterilized milk did quite as well
as others fed on different diet, and
the death rate was normal. There Is a
conflict of evidence here that Is very
confusing to the lay mind, and tlie
whole subject is one that calls for
very close attention. Many people
believe tliat by sterilizing milk they
get rid of tlio dangerous microbes,
but it Is just possible that tlie process also destroyed other properties
without which milk is valueless as a
food. Technically sterilization, as
distinct from Pasteurisation, Implies a
tempature of about 230 deg. P.—more
or less, according to the time the
temperature is maintained. Pasteurisation, however, is effected at 160
deg. to 175 deg. P, There can be no
doubt that milk is at Its best- when
It comes from tlie cow, and If If Its
full value Is to be obtained, It should
not be tampered with in any way. If
cows are healthy and tlieir milk Is
produced and distributed under hygienic conditions the consumers will
have nothing to fear.—Family Herald.

So far as tlie outcome of the present situation lu Mexico is concerned
it appears to be on the knees of tlie
gods. That is If we are tu be guided
by the policy laid down by President
Wilson. To put It in plain words,
that country la to be left to work out
its own salvation, at any rute for the
time being. Mr. Wilson Is playing
what is called a waiting game. He
declares that a country of the size
and power of the United States could
wait just us long as It pleased.
Judging from tlie shrewdness and
astuteness which have hitherto marked tbe policies of tlie President, one—
however ho may consider armed intervention on the part of thc United
Stutes immediately necessary—(eels
diilldent in expressing a contrary
view to the policy of temporary Inactivity laid down. Woodrow Wilson
has arguments on his side when ho
says tliat those poople who were In
haste to havo things done were forgetting what they themselves would
have to do, that they would have to
contribute brothers and sons und
sweethearts to do It If they wanted
something done right away.
Armed intervention in Mexico, with
the nature of the country, would mean
a guerilla warfare which would continue for a period of years. ThlB the
President lias guaged. Present sentiment, born of indignation over recent
occurrences in Mexico, would wish to
see drantlc and Immediate action tak-1

result of the defective sanitation and

combatting tuberculosis is the most

Whatever may be one's opinion as
to tlie general feasibility of the Henry
Ford generosity, it has hud one very
wholesome and salutary effect: about
half of the employees affected got married without delay. We hnve been
asking ourselves iu mournful numbers
why such a large percentage of people nowadays refused to marry and set
up housekeeping, and the employees of
Mr. Ford have answered. Tliey are
not marrying because tliey cannot afford It. Tliey are counting tlie coBt
In dollars and cents, and the reckoning appais them. Of course tlie high
cost of living nnd low salaries are not
the only barrier confronting young
people and middle aged people who
would marry, hut since the striking
example of the Ford company's workmen, there can he no doubt that these
(actors constitute one very potent obstacle to that highly dsfrnble ron'

A l'aper Rest! Before The W.t'.T.l.
Last Week, by Mrs. A, V. Johnson
In tlit' beginning God created the
male und the female and He said:
"Let them have dominion over all the
Earth." Not let tlie 'male" liave dominion, but let 'them' have dominion. So
you see, God started us alright, but
tlie men for various selfish reasons of
their own have tried to read it le tho
male have dominion over the lemale.
It is very Interesting to read of the
Political Evolution of Women, of thc
status of women In ancient Egypt
ami Assyria; Greece and Home. We
will pass over those with the exception Of historical Home. Two hundred
years before Christ, conservative Ko-
iiuiiis .greeted the woman movement
With all dismal prophecies with whicli
many greet it in our own time. Tlio
new religion which came to Rome
gave women Ideas whieh lead them
to resent tho subjection Inflicted upon
Greek and Asiatic courtesans were
pouring in and Roman fathers must
have their daughters educated if
these women wero not to hold the
position they hail done at Athens and
Corinth, Women found their vulue
and stipulated for the extension of
ber dowers, if not for other property,
As their wealth grew, lawyers entered their service and taught tbem
how to evade tlio law. Divorce which
had been unknown for centuries, became frequent, mock marriages were
entered into which withdrew them
from a father's control without substituting tliat of a husband.
About 11)0 B.C. the now spirit ol
the women broke out in fiery eruption.
During the'war with Carthage, a law
had been passed (215 R.C) forbidding
the women to wear Heavy golden or-
naments or many colored robes, and
restricting tlieir use of chariots. At
the close of tlio war the women demanded the repeal of Gils law, as It
had been passed to secure funds.
Ctt'to, who was consul, and others, resolved to retain this law, and a struggled ensued tbat one culd almost
transfer from the forum of Ancient
Rome to tlie Parliament square of
Modem London, Not only crowds or
men of opposing sides invaded tin
capital, hut the matrons, themselves,
broke loose from tlio control of tlieir
husbands, beset ail tlie ways tliat led
to the Forum and demanded the votes
of legislators. Reinforced hy crowds
of Provincial women, they kept up a
noisy agitation during the debate in
tho Forum und flared to approach tin
consuls and other magistrates, and al
length forced their way into the bouses
of the tribunes und won them to the
cause. Conservative patricians looked
with alarm ut this new species of woman. The consul said, "If the men
did not wish to see themselves up ilor
the heel of the women in a few yenr-j,
they must keep their wives at home
and forbid them to appear in puhlic.
jrit as there are today, ther** won
then men who sympathised wi'h tilt
woman's cause. I'nm that till".' itil-
Witrd, the women ni Rome continued
to enlarge their power and so It wont
on until the Roman Empire bogan to
lecny and the cause of women was
lost ln the general catastrophe.
We will pass over tlie other coin-
tries where the evolution was going on
and come to England when Defoe, in
K.B7 printed an essay on "Projects,"
one of tils 'projects' was a plea tor
the education of women, lie insisted
that "Women's faculties are equal to
men's, tlte only difference is in education." There was not much response aud the education of Knglish
women remained very low until little
more than a generation ago. The records of English literature are relieved by few feminine names until we
reach tbe age of Queen Victoria.
About the beginning of the 17th century, Kngland Imposed the sex disability. A great Knglish lawyer, Sir
Edward Coke, refused the testimony
of women, on grounds of sex; so you
con easily see how tills fatal sent!
ment had heen gradually permeating
thc mind of Kngland.
Before the end of the 18th century
we find legul writers classing women
with Infants, Idiots aud liiuntlcs, in illustrating "natural incapacity." Tho
women of Kngtand seemed to liave entirely lost their birthright.
Then there broke out a series of political eruptions that changed the face
of tiie world and awakened a fresli
ambition in women Unit would never
again ho stilled.
America fnaiigeiiratoil tho change,
Tlie Declaration of Indepeudance set
up tlie lirst modern democracy. From
tlie very first moment, the women of
America denounced the injustice of
tiie male electorate. The appeals at
tliat time of Mercy Warren and Abigail Adams were almost forgotten and
fn* masculine Idea was firmly incor-
podated in the American Constitution,
when a young Scotch woman, Francos
Wright, used tlio comparative freedom of the country to start a brilliant and fiery campaign for the rights
of women. She was Joined by other
women. Saw the democratic Americans Jeered and tlie clergy hounded
them and the litle company grew larger and larger. You may read in Mrs.
daily Stanton's tiistory. Tlie poet
Whittle? took up tho pet) for them.
They had proved their capacity for
public life by their share In the anti-
slavery campaign, lu the meantime,
the Hccond democratic wave passed
over Knropu    lu chief expression waa
the passing of the great Reform Bill
in England With singular logic*, the
men who hud prepared the forests of
pikes to withstand Wellington and
who gathered by thousands io sing
Hail. Dawn of Liberty" and threaten
ed to march on London, now turned
on tlie women and expressly excluded
them from political life. In their resentment that a superior class should
dictate to them. How were they to be
represented? The men of England
sacked cathedrals, challenged tho
troops and trampled on the portrait
of the King; then, they turned about
and dictated to the women how they
Should be represented.
The whole world reuds In large
headlines of a suffragette who strikes
a policeman. No one remembers the
weary bringing to Parliament of Petition alter Petition, for 50 years without recognition; tho slow educative
measures that have brought the movement to its prsont position; the patient work of half a century. Tlio men
of Kngland were always free. In
seeking political rights did they use
no violence? Why was Charles I beheaded? Why did the Civil War ensue? Why did Cromwell declare a
Commonwealth? Those were drastic
measures to win political liberity.
The man who lights lor political liberty is ;i patriot. The woman who
fights for the sumo end is a virago,
hi the struggle for liberity, the men of
England beheaded their king. In thi
same cause, the women of England
striko a policeman. Yet the world
stands aghast at so depraved a spocta'
ih*. Liberty is dear to tlie heart of
an Englishman, it Is equally dear to
tlie heart of an English woman. What
presumption of men to think that
tbey alone love freedom! Thc long,
long struggle of the women of England to win the liberty their fathers
loved is pathetic. There Is something
stupendously absurd in tho refusal
:>r those, whose atieestors died in tlie
cause of liberty, to tyrant equal! liberty— of which the symbol Is the ballot-
to the women of the laud. Consistency, thou art a jewel!
Tin* Reform Rill made the electorate, for the lirst time, exclusively
male, while the church has been the
most serious opponent, tbey have done
more than any to give woman an interest outside the home. Rut church
affairs and missionary enterprises and
charity bazaars wore quickly suppl
mented hy other interests. In 1840
Londoners forbade a group of devoted
American women from speaking at an
Antl-Slav**ry Convention on the ex
press ground that woman's place was
the home. It seems centuries remote
from our day of hundreds of organ lz
ations in which women are on equal
lerms with men. The psychology of
.ha Conservative or the Liberal, who
ipproves of the Primrose League or
the Woman's Liberal Federation, and
the employment of women ut elections
yet. when these ladies ask for tlie vote,
murmurs that their place is the homo.
is a thing too insincere for analysis.
Tin* strength it has gathered In the
Hritish Isles will become historic.
The northern countries of Enropi
felt it. In 1007 Norway granted full
■mffrago to women. In Finland, besides the suffruge, women wero given
the right to sit in Parliament. Sweden gave its women the franchise on
generous terms. France feel It; ftus-
sla and Germany feel it. Not long
ago a remarkable thing happened in
many. Tlie llermnn women, re-
■ued for tlieir domestic virtues,
and the veriest patterns of patience
and forbearance, sunt a dignified rebuke to no loss a personage than tlieir
Emperor, who aroused their just indignation by a stupid, short-sighted
speech .bidding them In tiie face of increased taxation which forces them into tlio industrial world so tliat they
and their children might not starve,
to keep in their homos and refrain
from interesting themselves In matters
affecting public welfare. Austria,
Bulgaria and Servia are deeply moved
Italy feels it, Greece and Switzerland.
It has touched Cape Colony, Japan nnd
Slam (where women have a limited
franchise), America and the Philip*
pines, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. In 1913, New Zealand granted
adult suffrage. South Australia gave
it iu 1804; West Australia hi BOO;
New South Wales In 1901. and Tasmania, in 1904. Even in Turkey tiiere are
sweeping changes In preparation. In
India, the very walls of tlie zennnas

Canada, the legislature of the Philip'
pines and one legislature In Australia,
making 61 legislative bodies. England, today. Is tlie storm centre of this
movement, lu other lands there has
been evolution; in England u bloodless
revolution. There the women have added to persuasiveness, political methods and tactics, and It is a significant
fact, that while muny of the ladies of
the movement did not sanction the
newer methods of stone throwing,
cause for which they were working
was so important that they did not
stop to censure, although the outside
world was censuring, thoy contlned
tlieir work without dls-union; they

through an evolutionary process,
reaching a higher status in civilization
and ultimately attaining to her true
position an man's help mate, not his
toy or slave. Too long has this later
barbaric idea obtained nnd at thia
stage In our history, when we speak
of heing so enlightened, it is time
that that utittide wan forever relegated to tlie lower regions. All down
the ages, with few exceptions, woman
has been .suppressed and opressed
and subject to injustices and Inequalities, There are wrongs which must
he righted, anomalitles and Iniquities
which must be abolished. It is certainly an anomaly that In tlie most
Jivllized empire of the world, women
are denied the rights and privileges of
citizenship and are therefore included in the category with lunatics and
crimlnlals. Is that just? Under a
representative government such as
ours, the people should make the laws,
but do tliey? No, one half are forbidden any share in law-making. Woman lias no voice in making the laws
whicli she must obey. In fact she Is
only recognised when she trangresses
man-made laws; und In regard to tax-.
ationj Ye "Governments derive their
just powers from tlie consent of the
governed." No taxation without representation" is another principle of
which we boast. No mother can have
voice in making the laws which decide tier legal relation to her child.
.She Ih, however, permitted the suffering of bringing them into existence
ind toiling for them generally. Why
did the men tight for the franchise?
To protect their interests! Are they
going to deny a like privilege to women ?
In British Columbia-, tlie position of
woman is unique. In New Westminster, woman have all the voting privileges except tor Parliament. In Victoria aud other municipalities, the
householder vote was taken from tile
woman four yeurs ago without any
just cause, in Vancouver, an unmarried woman who owns property can
Vote, but us soon as she marries, she Is
placed in tiie same position as thc
womun of Russia. The question lias
been asked in this province as well hh
otlier places, "why women want the
franchise." Wo want tiie privilege of
the franchise not only for
nuke of woman's right but for the sake
of human rights. It is that we may
he better able to protect the Interests
which belong to motherhood and to
childhood and this includes the questions of purity of food, sanitary
science, remuneration of labor, the
protection of women and chidren by
law und muny other kindred subjects.
I wonder If many of you realize
just what some of the luws mean to the
womanhood of B.C. Do you know tliat
tlie fattier is the guardian and lias
sole control of tlie children? Do you
know       that any       naturalized
mule citizen who, residing
twelve, months in the municipality
registers and pays u poll tax of $2.00
can vote in municipal elections, but
no woman, except in Westminster,
can vote unless she owns property?
Do ynu know, tbat a girl's honor Is of
less_ importance in the eyes of the
law tlinn her property?—the former
heing protected only until she Is 16
and In some .Instances 14, and the
property until she Is 21? Do you
know that un llleglmate child is supposed to bo the child of no one? No
right over It In given by the law to

the mother and It may not even Inherit ber property. Nevertheless she
is held responsible for its maintain-
pace and if harm comes to it through
Iter neglect she Is liable to indictment
for manslaughter. Although a wife
lias worked hard for years ln help*
ing her husband to accumulate money she would he entitled only to the
use, for life, of one-third of the property as liis widow. Then again, why
should then* be a dual standard of
morality? Is that Just? Why Is
tiiere not equal pay for equal work?
Why are women's salaries so much
lower than those of men? Many more
such questions might be asked, but
let these suffice, Every sensible woman must take an intelligent Interest
in politics, for the sake of her children us well us for her own Bake,
because politics dally enters Into her
home in the shape of impure air and
water, adulterated food, milk, etc.,
and outside polities lies ln watt for
her boys in the form of saloons and

Some Tasks are Easy for
While Few Indeed are Impossible
The easy advertising tasks are usually
accomplished through ONE PUBLICATION of the advertisement. The
hard advertising tasks may require REPEATED PUBLICATIONS of the
advertising — sometimes growing into
the dignity of " advertising campaigns."
And, while purely " transient" advertising may not complete the task set for
it, an "advertising campaign" does not

tasks as that of finding ONE BEST
BUYER for your property, or the man

reading of the advertisements, buying
opportunities — clues to business opportunities that should be followed up —
money-saving and money-making Facts.
