Regular Meeting Thursday Last
Disposes of .Monthly 1-toutine
ol* Business
At tlie regular monthly meeting of
tin- City Council last Thursday evening there were present the Mayor and
Aldermen Sanpto, Jones. Flowers and
Arnold. No specially important business was brought up, and the session was taken up largely in passing
the acounts and receiving the usual
reports.
City Foreman Soden's report showed
thot tho waler level in the reservoir is
now nearly normal, after carelessness
on the part of some hi leaving taps
ninning aad other causes had caused
some apprehension last month. The
fire chief's report showed two alarms
attended last mouth, one resulting in
damage to the extent of about $800.
Dr. Rutledge, dairy Inspector, also
presented his monthly report and will
next month submit his annual report
reviewing his activities for the past
twelve months. Supt. Eakln's report
on the electric light system showed
ten new services put in for lhe month.
Nineteen motors in the city have now
beon changed over trom the two .phase
to the three phase system in preparation for the coming of the Bull River
power next spring.
A report from the relief committee
was presented, showing aid given to
a needy family, and presenting a bill
for meals provided, which was passed
for payment.
It was left to the discretion of the
Klectric Light Committee to make
some slight changes lu the agreement
with the B.C. and Alberta Power Co.
made last spring. These changes provide among other things for a sixty
day extension for the company and
also author bio some slight changes
lu Its transmission lines demanded by
tho government Inpector.
lu securing her standing of a ful-
i ly qualified regit; ter tal nurse for thu
j province, Miss O. Parnaby, of this
ecured a standing thai is most
gratifying to ber friends here. In
some of the requirements she secured -the highest place in the province,
ii is underslcod.
Tiie air is full of rumors of all varieties In regard to Impending chang-
u the cabinet, and the feeling is
that while somo of the stories are liable to bo a little fantastic, tiiere is
nine rt-organlzatiou impending, but
not likely to become .public until af-
tlie decision of MacKenzie King
io which B. C. Libeiulg are *o be
in. luded in his cabinet. In the meantime a nice problem for the B. c. go-
rnment arises |*n how to meet tiie
beer-selling situation in Vancouver,
where most of the hotels arc under-
tin nl to have thrown off restraint and
takes to aellng beer under tho thinnest, and flimsiest guide us clubs.

us lho dance of the Crunbrook Shrine
Club, held In the Auditorium, ou Wed-
sday e\enlng of thin week. Considerable time was spent in putting

aud the decorations were quite striking. The Banff Dance Orchestra provided the music for tho dancing, which
was carried on with all due eclat till

In tills province.
Provincial Constable Mortimer tills
wook mado some arrests of consequence, some of which It Is believed
will havo tlie effect of removing some
old offenders to safe keeping for
time. On Monday Henrick Drier, a
farmer of the Wasa district, was arrested, and a charge of store-breaking
and theft entered against him. On
Ids premises was found concealed a
large amount of dynamite, slill in the
original boxes bearing the name of
tho Fort Steele Trading Co.. and believed to be dynamite stolen from
that concern very recently. It was
found concealed In the hay loft. On
Wednesday Benjamin Teed of Gold
Creek was arrested by Constable Mor
timer on u charge of stealing feed
from McUrindle's barn. A search of
his premises revealed a number of
sheepskins and cow hides, the origin
of which the .prisoner may have to
account for. Both these cases were
brought up before Magistrate Leask,
und remands made for eight days.
Two Italians, Carlo Jar.ffa and John
Blefare, were also brought up tlds
week by Constable Mortimer charged with being In poBSes-don of moonshine whisky. Fines of $50 were im-
1-osed in these cases.

It will appear a
mass, so soft, lustrous, and easy to
do up. But what will
please you most will bo after a few
weeks use, when you see new hair—
fine and downy at first—yes—but really now hair growing ull over tho
scalp. "Danderine" is to tho hair
what fresh showers of rain and sun-
sbino are to vegetation. It goes right
to tho roots, invigorates and strengthens them. This delightful, stimulating toulc helps thin, lifeless, faded

bis plcturizatlou of White's literary
masterpiece starring Louise Glaum,

plaudits of tho nations lovers of fiction and photoplay.
A newzstory ln old clother, to reverse the bromide, Is "The Leopard
Woman," and it reveals tho elemental
iu the natures on man and woman In
all Its fiery, vibrant glory. It shows
that there is more to the lovo of a
woman limn meek acquiescence to tho

The Story
Nan Rutledge was a baby vamp
without equal. She also was inclined
to be a little wild. She staged moonlight dances at her father's palatial
country home that nearly drove tho
o'd man frantic. All men were her
subjects, hut her. particular footstool
was Hone, a lavender scented youth of
gentle occupations.
One day Papa Rutledge called :i
halt. Summoning Nan to his office
ho ordered her to pick a husband and,
settle down. Sho promptly .picked a
man whose shadow she saw silhouetted against 'lie office door. "Trot
him in," she commnnded.
It was Anthony Oriswold, a rich
client, and a woman hater. Nan started to vamp him- He didn't vamp well
at alt. Even when he was the honor
guest at Nan's next house party, he
was slow in 1 hawing out. Finally lie
began to slip—and then it happened!
He proposed! Nan accepted lilm and
in a few minutes changed her mind ln
front of the guests-
Tliat's where she erred. She didn't
know she had hooked a cave-man.
That night he abducted he; and whisk
ed her away to the mountains. After
roughing it a bit, she fintlly decided
that a pair of cave-man arms made
a belter resting place than a flock of
lavender scented sofa .pillows.

Ottawa.— Tho body of an unknown
Canadian soldier is to bo brought from
tlie old western buttle front and buried beneath tlie Victory lower of tho
new parliament buildings.
It is proposed that the body shall
bo placed In a vault excavated iu the
solid rock foundation under tho great
archway of the Victory Towor and
between tho two .portals whicli give
entrance to tbo buildings. The grave
will sol almost Immediately below tho
altar in the memorial chamber overhead, nnd will bo marked- by a marble
slab raised above tho gruvo level.
This Blab will ho suitably inscribed.
Titus, all who outer the parliament
buildings through tho two portals under tho archway of tho tower, whether
legislators on their way lo their dul-
los, or citizens on their way to tho
chamber above, will pass by lhe \afii
resting placo of one, who, representing many, was failhful in duty uuto
death, and whoso dust will hallow the
placo dedicated to his memory
that of all of iiis follows,
Tower Not Completed
As the tower lias not reached completion, and as tho arrangements
which will have to be made will take
somo time, It is unlikely that the
ceremony will take place before Armistice Day.  192?
The action taken comes as the
result of suggestions to the government from various persons and organizations, and as a result of conferences between the premier. Sir
James Loughcod, and representatives
of tlie Great War Veterans' Association. The final consultation took
place on Wednesday, wheu tho premier and Sir James Lougbeed conferred
with H. B. Maxwell, president of the
IG. W. V. A-. and C C. MacNeil, sec-
; retary-treasurer. Further conferen-
: ces wero held with John A. Pearson,
line architect of the new house of par
linment, and claborato .plans are be
ing prepared.
Ofiicial Statement
"It is proposed." says an ofiicial
statement issued by the prime minister's otllco Inst week. "that
tho body of Canada's unknown soldier shall be Interred at the base of
tho main entrance to the houses of
parliament, within the confines of
the Tower of Victory and Peace*
"At the entrance of the tower is a
symbolical representation of tho
struggle between civilization and
barbarism. The dominant figures
upon tlie tower are warriors with arms
reversed. In sculptured stone upon
tho walls and in the niches ls written
the romance of history, embracing the
beginning of the nation.
Over Sacred Rust
"The memorial chamber forms the
first floor of the tower above the
archway, and is entered from the
main floor of the central hall, the proportions of which attune the visitor's
mind to the dedicated place where lie
will presently stand over the sacred
dust beneath it. Around the walls of
the chamber will he a black marble
base, the gift of Belgium, bearing the
weight of the memorial, as the Belgians bore the terrific shock of the
■war. Behind the niches, with their
bronze tablets recording Canadian
battles, are to be walls of Savonniere
stone, from France, solid uud immovable as France at Verdun.
Beautiful Carvings
"On the centre boss of the groined
and vaulted ceiling where the mitred
ribs unite, will he carved the Domln
ion coat of arms, the coat of arms of
the provinces, the symbols of England,
Scotland, Ireland, France and Wales.
The stained glass windows, which will
cast a cathedral light through tlie
chamber, are the gifts of nine Canadian provinces.
"Stones for the paving of the floor
are being gathered In every part of
France and Belgium in whicli the Canadian troops fought. After these have
been turned into flag stones, on their
surface will bo incised and caulked
with lead the names of the places at
which Canada's forces were engaged.
In the centro of the floor, surrounded
by those French nnd Belgian walls.,
will stand the alter of Cirent Britain,
a marble alter carved out of a solid
block, the offering of the motherland:
that on her breast may bo tho book of
remembrances, on lho pages of which
will be written the sixty thousand
names of the men who died for her
honor and the freedom of the world."

THE STOKV OF "CONFLICT*
A Mighty Epic of the Logging
Country
John Itemalie and his brother Henry were lumbermen in the Groat
North Woods; alike In blood yet in
ternperamcnt as different as a pine
and au oak.
John was a rellglouH young man,
gifted in prayer and given to a piety I
that smacked of hypocrisy. He stayed In the woods while Henry wonl |
to the city to handle the gregarious
portions of the Uemalie lumber bust-'
ness, then on its way to a million-
John never married. Once he had1
planned to marry. He built a mag- j
nlficent stone castle to house his bride.'
Suddenly, without warning or reason, I
he broke off his engagement and ul-''
tered the appearance of tho house. He j
made it a grim, prison-like structure
and moped in with a Miss Labo, daughter of a camp cook, as his housekeeper. She was a silent woman, as
grim and forbidding as his house, and
for twenty-seven years she had said
no unnecessary word to him.
In the city Henry had married and
of the union thero came a beautiful
girl, Dorcas, who grew to eighteen ir» j j
luxury, the tempestuous blood of tho
forest coursing unseen in her veins
under a veneer of education aud culture. Dorcas had only met John Uemalie once, and that was at th.. funeral
of her beloved father. She disliked
her uncle Intensely.
When the will of Henry Remalle
was read It provided that his daughter
' in the village, particularly orn- as clean
. jevoni.   i»ii a pretense he picks a
iiii Jevons and is thrashed for
bis    trouble.     Accidentally    Dorcas
meets Jevons, and  while    despising
' lumber-Jacks, is surprised at his apparent education.   The girl und the
uj.iu become interested in tine another
until Dorcas overhears a conversation
in whlcb  Miss  Labo tells a certain
ii.;. teriou-i visitor that Bfae    is    his
1 mother und that John Heniulie is his
father.    Dorcas lias reason to believe
tiiat   tin-  visitor  is  Jevons     She    is
torn with anguish.
jevons announoes that he i« going
to compete with itemalie in tho lumber
business and begins constructing a
mill. Remalle plana to have lilm put
oui <»f the way, perhaps unctiously,
but nevertheless effectively.
Bloan is to do the work.
Remalle leaves for Boston so as to
bi ah enl when Jev< us is killed. The
housekeeper, to get his fortune for her
Bon as the only heir, tries to poison
Dorcas, She loaves the grim house
and goes to live with the three (linger
brothers, uncouth but mighty men of
the rore-al. who swear to protect her.
Jevons saves her from annoyances
at the hands of Sloan. She learns that
Jevons is not the mysterious visitor.
She is thrilled by Jevon'a plans of getting his logs to the mill and outwitting the timber baron, Itemalie. They
soon become sweethearts. She pledges to carry on his work In case aught
Happens to the young lumberman.
The day is set for pitting of forces—

Into Weird Surroundings
Rebellious!}' Dorcas left for the
woods, a spoiled and pampered child
of wealth. With her went a maid and
five trunks.
Miss Labo met her at the door—sullenly. An hour later John Itemalie
arrived from his lumber office at tho
mill and told her that her sinful sou*
would have to mend before she could
reap the benefits of his pleasure. They
sat down to a frugal meal, unctiously
eaten with a pall of hyprocritical piety
hanging over the forbidding room like
a shroud. Dorcas was miserably unhappy nnd rebellious.
In a few days Dorcas, with feminine iustlnet, senses that something is
wrong witli John Remalle and his
whole scheme of life. She cannot understand the sullen housekeeper and
trembles with n forbodlng of evil.
ln the town comes Jovons. a splendid figure of a young man, but a person of mystiry.   No one knows why
on one side the wit of Jevons and tho
loyalty of his crew—ex-service men
who had fought under him in France—
and on tho other, the hireling lumberjacks of the Remalle interests.
Jevons A Prisoner
Ou the morning of Lhe day word
reaches Dorcas that Jovons ts missing. Sloan has taken him prisoner
and bound him in a deserted cabin.
Dorcas, thinking Jovons Is dead, goes
to finish his job.
She arrives at the Jevons logging
tamp In time to see tho two forces
engage In conflict. She spurs the minions of Jevons. The tide of battle
turns against them, however, so sho
determines to outwit her uncle's forces by desperate means.
She sets off the fuse which blows
up the dam behind whieh Jevons had
stored millions of gallons of river
wator and thousands of logs. The
liberated water roars down the dry
river bed, Lhe logs rolling and tumbling on their way to the mills below-
It is then she learns from Sloan that
Jevons is helpless In a cabin directly
in the path of the flood.
The Haco For Life
Then begins a terrific race between
the rushing waters and the girl
horseback. She is too late to reach
I the cabin, but soon overtakes Jevons,
who is floating down unconscious on
a section of tlie cabin floor. He rapidly is approaching a cataract-
Forsaking her horse, Dorcas takes
to the river, jumping from log to log
—sometimes falling between them,
She reaches Jevons In the nick of

almost equally divided between
Uie Liberals and Progressives.
Manitoba, Saskatchewan and
Alberta went about eighty-five
per cent. Progressive, and B.C.
was the one province to give
the late government a clear majority over the other two parties.

1  U 11 0 II I \) O.      wliich the Liberals will rule the
country, is scarcely a national
affair. The thing does not
exist, outside of the three provinces named. The prairie pro
vinces are the Farmers' pres
erves, apparently, and what
Conservatives are returned
come from only five of the nine
provinces.
What the west can expect
from Liberalism is hard to see.
From Ontario to the Pacific
the Liberals are by far the weakest party numerically, and on
the prairies especially but a
small degree of confidence was
shown in their candidates.
Whether people generally like
the prospect or not, it is all too
apparent that the real power
in the new government is go-
ing to be Quebec. That province has made the new govern-
ment and will be able to break
it or sustain it at will. Sir Lo-
mer Gouin, whether as premier
or cabinet minister, will be the
real power in the government,
with more seats at his beck
and call than Mackenzie King
can muster. The memory of
conscription dies hard in Quebec apparently, and when Mr.
Meighen, with more courage
than tact, possibly, told Quebec
audiences that he would do the
same again under similar circumstances, Quebec shrugged
its shoulders and put Meighen
into the cold on election day.

DANGER FROM
SECTIONALISM
Election postmortems are occasionally productive of somewhat amazing disclosures. The
federal elections last week, when
looked at from sonic angles re-
ment. As to the solid majorities for Conservatives built up
at the Coast, there seems to be
but one interpretation to be
placed on them—that they are
the handwriting on the wall so
far as the B. C. Liberal government is concerned.
Latest figures show.that the
Liberal party In the new house
will lack by one a majority over
all other parties, the standing
being 117 Liberals as against
118 of all other parties.

The so - called Liberal

direction went the limit, which
wasn't very much farther than
formerly. Outside of Quebec.
Nova Scotia and Prince Edward

twenty seals, represent the ex
tent of the Liberal "sweep.'
New Brunswick gave an even
break between the late government and the Liberals, Ontario
gave thirty-seven seats to the

W. S. Fielding, who will be two
oustanding Quebec figures in
the new government are
known to cherish strong protectionist leanings. Nevertheless, it will be good business
for Mackenzie King to court the
farmers with some tariff changes, though the attitude of the
Quebec leaders will mean putting on the soft pedal and playing lightly with the tariff.
In Ontario the Progressive
movement failed to make the
headway which was looked for
there, and the conclusion is
that the cities do not take kindly to the idea of group govern-

NOTICE
Press despatches indicate that the Mine Owners
Association, and other organizations in West Kootenay
have already taken action toward securing the appointment of Mr. R. E. Beattie, Dominion representee for this
district, to a Cabinet position, preferably as Minister of
Mines. A general meeting of the Cranbrook Board of
Trade will be held in the City Hal! on Tuesday, December
20th, at S p.m. to consider the advisability of the Board
making representations to Ottawa in this connection, and
any other business that may be brought before the meeting. The Board has always maintained a neutral position
with respect to political questions, but it is felt that if Mr.
Beattie's appointment to a Cabinet position, particularly
that of Minister of Mines, can be secured, the whole province, and this district particularly, will be benefited
thereby.

Th* next annual meetiug uf the -
British Columbia Division or tlie Canadian InsUtuu uf .Mining and Meml- ■
lurgy will be held in Vancouver dui-!
lug Uie first week of February, 1922.
The Institute charges Itself with the
duty of stimulating in every way in j
Its power the development and Indus-;
try of mining. Essential to that aim
is the encouragement .>( prospecting.
At the meeting, at least, une session
will bo devoted to the consideration
and discussion of wuys ami means of
promoting prospecting activity in B.
C. Information will be presented indicating potentlul ureas yet unpros-
pected in the province, conditions of
travel, etc.. iu these areas. The marketing of prospects will alBo be debated; and tliere will be general papers upon such themes us "Aerial
photography as on aid to the prospector," and "The diamond drill as a
means of prospecting ore bodies."
Tho prosperity of the province ls
hi a very large degree dependent on
tlie profitable utilization to the greatest extent possible of our coal resources. Special prominence, therefore,
will be given ut this meeting to the
subject of coul mining.
Tho treatment of complex ores continues to be a live isstio in British
Columbia- Hence, an Interesting contribution on this subject hy Mr. W. G.
Woolf of the Bunker Hill aud Sullivan Mining & Concentrating Co- will
undoubtedly be appreciated.
The discovery of an important oil
field In the Mackenzie valley would
undoubtedly be of immense significance to this province. Mr. M. Y.
Williams' paper on the "Oil possibilities of the Mackenzie river" will therefore be of great interest-
Other pa,pers promised include;
"The Geology of the Britannia Mines."
"Mining and Metallurg'cal Practice
at the Brittannia Mine," and "The
Dolly Varden Mine," which last-will
deal in particular with the mode of
occurrence of the ore bdy at tliis property.

DOROTHY GISH
IN "FLYING PAT"
AT REX THEATRE
Husbands! If you
want to hold your
wives, keep their feet
on the ground.
That's the moral, if
any, of Dorothy Gir.li s
new picture, "Plying Pat," which opens a two day run at the Rex theatre.
Wednesday and Thursday next week
Peppery Dorothy is ai her mlrtli-.pro-
voking best in a rollicking story of
young married life. She scampers in
and out of airplanes, crashes out of
the sky Into an apple tree, and tin
ally is reconciled to her distrait husband out in the kitchen, where, unbeknown to him. she has taken a job as
cook.
Kiss Glsh is tho "Pat" of the title.
Having mnrried an ex-aviator and being told by him thn she Is to seek a
"career," it is natural that she con-
ielves tho ambition to bo the chain
pion lady airplane tamer. Of course
when hubby mentioned "career" ho
wasn't thinking of flying and the
handsome captain who so kindly offered to teach Pat the finer points of
volplaning. So thero are complications that finally lead the bride to a
teary exodus from her husband's roof.
But tho world proves cold and ihe
men over-flirtatlbus. so she come3
back — but not to tho parlor. She
stops at the khchen. wliere she sup*
plants a cook who has Just resigned.
There she listens In on the consultations which her frantic husband li
having with the detectives who an
searching for her.

FORESTRY
(By the Canadian Forestry Assoc*)
H. If Canuda Is so concerned in
foapst conservation uud the timber
supply is rapidly decreasing, why not
stop the cutting of Christmas Trees''
A. Because the Christmas tree custom is too beautiful and too well ea
tabllshed to be interfered with. All
the CbrlBtmas trees cut in Cai_ada every year would only represent u few
square miles of forest, und in comparison with the forest fires uf just i
single provinco iu any one year are
of iniinitessimul account. Most Chrl-
as trees are cut by farmers from
Lands they need as pasture, uud it
means u handy source of revenue for
many u worthy family. Let's be reasonable about tree cutting. Don't let
is disturb the joys of Christmas until we have done more to block the
ravages of tho real tree destroyer,
tho fire fiend.
ii. Is it possible to cut a spruce op
ilsam to secure a good Christmas
tree without killing the .parent tree's
growth?
■V. Quite easy. Cut the tree off
just above the lowest whorl of branches and then trim off all others of
the remaining branches except one.
The latter will grow eroct rapidly
and gradually establish itself as the
main tree trunk. In this way a plantation of spruces can be kept produc-
ug Christmas trees indefinitely. The
plan is in effect iu several parts of
tho United States.
Q.    How far apart should trees be
anted to form a shelter belt about
a farm or school property?
A. Four feet apart each way. Thtt
wilj give you a dense shade iu a few
years sufficient to kill out tho grass
underneath. If planting in districts
where there is abundance of moisture
you can afford to space the trees farther apart.
Q. What is the value of the maple
sugar and syrup crop in Ontario and
Quebec per annum?
A. Vou will be surprised to know
that it goes up to eight million dollars
a year. .Most of tliis is credited to
Quebec.
Q. If 1 put on a roof of wooden
shingles do 1 have more Insurance to
pay?
A. You can lay asbestos paper underneath your shingles and get the
same rate as a slate roof. The 'scare'
regarding iuflamablUty of wooden
shingle roofs is due to the use of poor,
cheap grade of shingles that curl at
the edges. Really high grade wooden
shingles are a minor fire menace.
'SINS OF KOSANNE"
NEW ETHEL CLAYTON
PICTURE IS COMING
Ethel Clvrtton's latest Paramount
photoplay, "Sins of Rosanne," which
will be seen at the Rex next Monday
and Tuesduy hut a South African setting. It wus adapted from a novel
by Cynthia Siockley.
The story centers around Rosanne,
a beautiful young woman who lives
witli her pare.its near the Kimberley
diamond mines. From a Malay native,
who saved Rosaline's life when she
was nu infant, she has received a mad
craving for bright stones und the pow*
er to curse with misfortunes those
who mot her displeasure. Her desire
for jewels leads her Into a scheme to
smuggle them from tho Kimberley
mines. It is the man she loves, Sir
Denis Harlehden, who finally gets on
truck of the smugglers, and, after ex*
citing adventures, Rosanne is (prov-
en innocent.
The cast supporting Mis8 Clayton is
au unusually competent one, including Jack Holt, Fred Malatesta, and
C. II. Geldurt. Tom Forman, who has
played Important roles In many Paramount pictures, directed "Sins of
Rosanne." Mary H. 0*Connor adapted
tho story to tho screen.

Victoria, Doc 10—1 tern ar liable only
for it Bdocltiioii to impose fresh taxes
ami increase public expenditure, tiio
second bession of tlto Fifteenth Legis*
laturo came to an end last week wlion
His Honor, tho Lieutenant (Jovenior,
gavo assout to fifty odd bills whicli
had been passed during tho seven
weeks sitting of tho House.
Summoned with the special object
In view of .providing adeauate finan
cial relief for municipaltties, it has
failed iu this regard for tho relief is
not forthcoming. What tlie municipalities aro to recoivu is an unknown
amount of money. The municipal
council!-, to bo elected iu January will
bu just as much in the dark as they
evere were and tho finance chairman
of these councils will bo forced to go
ahead under the old system, facing
the danger of having to increase the
mill rate which in time will mean additional acreage reverting from private
ownership to that of the municipalities'
As .pointed out by Uio opposition
who only lacked three votes ou the
division when the additional five million loan was passed on tho closing
day, lho situation in ono to cause uneasiness. Seventeen millions have al-
. ready beeu borrowed this year and
with this addition of five millions
tho government is now in a position
to borrow nine and one-half millions
moro before tlie next legislature opens.
Featuring last week's sittings of
tho House was the attempt to pass a
beer clause in the Liquor Control
Act. Led by Ian Mackenzie, Liberal
member for Vancouver, the effort was
exnieded over several days until finally thrown out hy the Speaker on tho
ground that the amendment dealt with
provincial revenue, anil coming from
a private member could not be entertained. The Conservative opposition
stood as ono In their decision to remain aloof from liquor discussions
unless tbe government brought down
the measure on Its own. Six of the
isoven members of the cabinet voted
for tho Mackenzie amendment ana
even Premier Oliver announced that
he would bo for tho resolution petitioning tho Lleutenant-Oovernor to
bring down a bill although he had
always been, and would continue to
bo, opposed to the salo Ot beer by the
glass. As a last resort. Mr- Mackenzie made a niovo which would have
allowed returned soldier clubs and
otlier organizations incorporaled under Dominion charter to sell beer in
their club rooms. This also went by
tho boards, so thut today by the decision of Mr. Justice Murphy, rendered
.somo months ago which gave the right
of these clubs to sell beer to its members, is now overrlded. Atxuit the only way these clubs may now operate
with beer is to install the "locker"
Hystein whereby each member may
stock a supply of his own.
During the recess Interest is being
taken as lo the probability of writs
being issued to fill vacancies in Nelson and Vancouver. It ls doublful
whether theso will be issued much
beforo the fall In view or the narrow
escape of the government by the close
margin of two votes on thc honvor
scandal resolution. l\y that time the
government figures it will havo re
established itself in the esteem of the
electorate.
Saturday's prorogation was featured by congratulations being handed to
Hon. \Y*. J. Bowser, leader of the op*
position, and to Hon. J. \V. deB. Farris, Attorney-General, on the occasion
of their birthday.

Tlie   Passing   of   Lord  Mount   Stephen
Lord Mount Stephen is de-ad, agec
02 years. He passed away peace
fully on November 89th, 1021, at his
residence, Brocket Hall. Hatfield,
Hertfordshire, dying painlessly of
sheer old n^e. Lord Mount Stephen
had been living in absolute retirement for many years.
George Stephen was a Scot, horn
in 1S29 at Dufftown, Banffshire, and
his educational advantages were confined to what the parish school afforded. Leaving- school at the early
age of fourteen, he was apprenticed
to a draper and dealer ill dry goods
in Aberdeen. Having completed his
four years' apprenticeship, like many
in the northern land, he made his
Way lo London, where he joined a
well-known firm which still exists
under the shadow of St. Paul'**
Cathedral.
It was the middle of the 19th century when George Stephen, then 81
yenrs of ago, reached Canada in
company with his cousin, Donald
Smith (afterwards Lord Strathcona),
in Montreal he entered the service
of his cousin, William Stophen, who
was in tlie dry goods trade, .ml three
years later he went into partnership
under tbe style of William Stephen
& Company, Years of stead) hard
work followed. In 1802 the senior
partner died, and George, acquiring
the whole business, began to manufacture cloth. Tbis proved remunerative and he soon devoted his entire
efforts to it, relinquishing tbe whole
sale trade.
George Stephen was elected a director of the Hank of Montreal, and
in 1876 he was chosen as via pro.
dent, and later as president.
The name of Lord Mount Stephen
will be chiefly remembered ns beine
associated With tho conception and
the   Carrying   to   completion   of   the
C.P.R., the pioneer transcontinental
railway, lie joined the small but
determined and optimistic gr*.\ip of
men who bad accepted the offer of
the Government to build tbe Canadian Pacific Railway,   lie was its
firsl president in 1881, and the first
annual report was print mi on one
•-beet of notepaper and signed by
Qeorge Stephen, tt was fitting that
lie should he its first presid»nt, for
lie  hail  put   Ids all   into  it,  for one
thing; for another* he had unrivalled
driving power; and, ftgaln. he hail
genius for method and detail.
A year after the completion of thc
C. P. 11., George Stephen was created a baronet. Ho built himself a
magnificent home on Drummond St.,
Montreal,  in  whieh he took  great
{>ride, especially in the conservatory,
milt after thc English style, as woll
as in his pictures, to which he devoted much attention.
In thinking of the public welfare
of the community, Sir George Stephen at that period displayed great
generosity.
Sir George Stephen resigned the
presidency of the C, P. R. in 1888,
in which ho was succeeded by the
late Sir William Van Home, wbo
consolidated, and nt the same time
extended thc service nnd earnings
of that great corporation. Three
years later, in 1891, he waa created
a baron hy Queen Victoria, when tie
assumexl^the title of Lord Mount
Stephen, and crossed the Atlantic
to settle down In England. In his
dutiful home. Brocket Hall* Hat-
v*£fi3t&
:   :
.twite
field, Herts, near which the Salisbury family reside, he for many
years entertained notable personages and devoted himself to the promotion of philanthropic movements.
Lord Mount Stephen was twice
married, his first marriage taking
place in 1858, to Anne Charlotte,
daughter of Benjamin Kane. In
1897 be was united to Glen Tufnell,
daughter Of tho late Captain George
Tufnell, U.N. There was no issue
of these mnrringes; but Lord Mount
Stophen adopted a daughter, who
married a son of the Northcote family in England.
It is of interest to note that although iti hh valedictory to thc C. P.
R. shareholders, Lord Mount Stephen excused his retirement on the
ground of health, bo lived for a
period of thirty-three years thereafter, or the span of another generation.
Much regret was expressed in C,
P. R. circles when tha death of Lord
Mount Stephen became known. AU
j the flags from one end of the system to the other were placed ai half-
j i.iast, and a laurel wreath was placed on the statue of Lord Mount
Stephen which stands in the w*»i •' ■***
room of the Windsor street station
here.
"It wns a cause of preat satisfaction to Lord Mount Stephen that !*a
lived to see his 'baby' grow into the
fre-atcst enterprise Canada has ever
Down," said Lord Shaughnessy.
"There was a great personal friendship between us." continued 1 ord
Shaughnessy, "which deepened ni
the years advanced." Discussing ti-e
fact that Lord Mount Stephen waa
in his 93rd year, and that Mr. R. ?,.
Angus, who had been so intimately
connected with Lord Mount Stephen,
is in his 91st year, Lord Shaughnessy
commented: "I am only 6Sj quite a
boy compared with them."
"I was first associated with Lord
Mount Stephen in 1882 nearly forty
years ago, shortly after the construction of the Canadian Pa l.'.c
had been commenced by the •■ompany, but my relations'did not he-
come at all close until the end of
1884. From that time until be retif-
ed from participation in the com*
patiy's affairs we were very close
business and personal friends. Indeed, our very warm personal relations continued to the end. -
> "I-ord Mount Stephen was a mnn
with imagination and initiative,
coupled with probity and courage.
"During the construction of the
trans-continental line he had many
anxious hours, and there were times
when his personal fortune, as well
as that nf his colleague, Lord Strath-
eona, was placed in jeopard'* in
loans to the company in its dark
days.
"To I_ord Mount Stephen beyond
all others may ho attributed the'suo-
cessful completion of the railway.
"During thc last 25 or 28 years
he had lived in England, but he followed Canadian affairs with the
keenest interest.
"In view of the part that he played in the first and moat important
enterprise connected with Canada's
progress, I am sure that the namo
of Lord Mount Stephen will always
be cherished by Canadians, and, indeed, throughout the world."
"My most intimate connections
with him were in 1884 and 1865,
when the Government, after the first
loan, were loath to provide any more
money. It was during that emergency that he and Lord Strathcona
furnished the requisite funds from
their own fortunes, at a considerable
sacrifice, no doubt, because they h .d
to sell other securities that they he'd
to raiee the money. Finallv .the
Government did make a further loan
of .$6,000,000, which Baw the company through, and enabled it to get
along until Lord Mount Stephen, or
George Stephen, as he was then,
had succeeded in selling the company's first mortgage bonds through
Baring Brothers.
"Just as soon as the company received payment for its bonds, ths
whole debt to the Government was
paid. He had said he would """ay
the loan, and did so. But If b« hud
adopted modern methods he wn ild
probably have triad to borrow mora
money instead."
(1) Blue Sea Lake.
(2) Below the Paugan at Low.
To a great number of people, "the
Gatineau" ia a term quite as vague
as was "somewhere in France" during the war. Even Canadians with
confirmed explorative tendencies are
abysmally ignorant concerning that
section of Quebec that stretches
.from the Ottawa River north to
Maniwaki and then on to a cluster
-oi unnamed lakes in which tho Gatineau River takes its rise.
I There are, it is true, many Ot-
,tawans who claim to know the district for they variously contend that
Chelsea, Kingsmcre, Meaeh Lake,
'Blue Sea, Farm Point or Kirk's
.Ferry is the real Paradise. But o
the vast unsettled, unsurveyed country rolling away from the main road
and the railway, they know very
little.
The Gatineau has "got me" at
last. For years I have fought
against it, listening with Ill-concealed scepticism to those who years
ego succumbed to its magic thrall.
I have heen driven into corners and
forced to hear poems on the Gatineau; I have been trapped into attending exhibitions flaunting pictures of the Gatineau; I have narrowly escaped picnics up the Gatineau, and skiing parries and camping trips. And speaking of sklinj
|. . . oh, you Scandinavians, what a
country for winter sport!
I Yet, places like people, have
greatness thrust upon them! Circumstances took me to Low; circumstances over whom I had no control.
They were two stern, uncompromising nueses.
Driving from the station (which
We reached by climbing a stiff grade
of two feet to the hundred), to the
house that was to receive my battered mortal envelope, I decided thnt
,Low was an eminently fitting place
[in which to be buried. Verily, the
mournful task seemed half accomplished by merely stopping there!
.And within a week it "got me"; gof
me tu the extent that I feel no poet
and no artist, however inspired, ever
did it justice.
Low nestlea in the embrace of
close encircling hills. Perhaps it
would be more accurate to say that
Low is a collection of hills, clothed
at this season in bronze at early
morning, in flame and orange at
.noon, a:.d in gently fading purple a:
kunset. Now and again they will
%•_ mist wrapped, and their outline
will push slowly from the rising I
vapour as the hulk of a great ship j
creeps out of a fog at sea.
Upon these hilts adventures lurk
— adventures expressed sometimes1
,n the sudden whirr of partridge
■Tings, sometimes in the discovery
f a liquid jewel set amid scarlet i
*rees; or again in the finding of a'
ve where prehistoric man sorely
must have made htJ home.   You may
ven find a skeleton.
As health and strength returned!
o me (the Gatineau can work a
miracle of healing) I wandered ever
farther Into the unblazed bush, and
one morning thus adventuring, I
stumbled over a large bone bleached
white and almost perfect in point of
preservation. It showed a .-.harp
ridged jaw, a long frontal bone and
horns. Considering the antiquity of
the hills which geologists compute
it fifty million years, it seemed rea-
_onable to suppose that dinosaurs,
-jterosaurs and ichthyosaurs must
nave left occasional remains in re- i
note sections. The skeleton proved
!t.   But to which class did the bone
belong ?
Thrills alternately heated and'
■■hilled me. I shouldered my traaa-j
ure that weighed probably six!
pounds and set out for home. As
the miles diminished, the weight of
the thing increased, until I fairly
3taggered up to the verandah, con
vinced that Atlas had a featherweight burden compared with mine
Exhausted but triumphant, I lowered
H and myself upon the floor and
cried:
"See the gorgeous specimen I ha-re
found!"
"What yer gain' ro ck with it?"
asked my ixMt, lukewarmly.
"Present it to the Geok»gk»]
Mua-eum a: Ottawa," said L "They
ar* crazy to have things like that."
Th* man irrigated a small section
of the soi. with tabac Canadian before remarking,
"Beits me wha: them fellas down
there war,*, with that oie truck!    If
I'd kr.owed what you ws. goin' after,
; 1  could have saved  you carryin' it
a'., them miie*.    I go; two cf them
heads in my barn."
i    I   gasped   my   disbelief.     Two?
I Why. the district mutt be a regular
I dinosaur  repository,  equal   to   tba
Red River country.
'    "Sore's I'm talun you," proteetad
i my boat.   "Kep' jus' fer fun, as yon
might say; horns and teeth perfect,
•.oo.   Better'n yours, there!"
"Why—why—what are thay?" I,
faltered.
"Steers' heads," he returned, shifting his quid. "I kill a oonple every
fall. You can have your pick of 'era
for that there Zoo-menagerie at Ottawa, aad welcome!"

A greater interest has been created in McGill University through the
special campaign inaugurated last
fall particularly among the grado-
ates. At this campaign over fiva
million dollars were subscribed to
carry on the work of old McGill, and
to supply additional buildings and
equipment commensurate with tha
growth of the Univen-rity. This increased interest is duly reflected by
the large numbers wbo are coming
who assure the success of this out-
tandlng event In the history of a
great university so favorably known
in every quarter of the globe.
Professor Cyrus MacMillan hat
written a history of the university
entitled "McGill and its Storiae,*
which S. B. Gundy, of the Oxford
University Press, Toronto, has
published in time for the Reunion.
This contains extracts from many
historic records published for the
first time and gives a wonderfully interesting account of the
pro-grass of education in Lower,
Canada and Quebec within tka lilt
hundred yeara, > J PAGE EIGHT
