HIH-MEST MEA8CRE OF CO'
OPERATION BETWEEN
VARIOUS INTERESTS
SUCH A COURSE WOULD
BE OF GREAT BENEFIT
Attention of Minister of Mines
Drawn Also to Condition of
Trails Hereabouts
At a meeting of the East Kootenay
Prospectors 'Association held In the
City Hall on October II, a number ct
Important resolutions vera brought tap
for consideration and duly endoraed,
which are given below. At thia meeting Mr. Thomlinson, a well known mining man, ot New Denver, waa present, and addressed the members of
the prospectors' association is regard
to an important project which he
now well Jn hand, that of gathering
HP representative ore samples from
. thia part to be used by the Dominion
Department of Mines ln undertaking
some publicity work. An exhibition
is to take place at New York, for instance, early in the new year, and it
la desired on this occasion that a good
showing ot Kootenay ores be In evidence. Mr. Thomlinson stated that he
waa not so much concerned with the
samples to be had from the properties now In the hands of Ms concerns,
knowing that they were fully alive to
ths necessity of such work. But by
taking these samples from undeveloped or partially developed properties
together with as full a description as
the owners or agents can furnish,
there ie a strong possibility of interesting outside capital ln such ventures. Samples from Bast Kootenay
are now being gathered together, and
will be forwarded to Ottawa shortly.
;It might surprise some to know that
h would be possible to gather not less
than twenty-live or thirty distinctive
types of ore from this district alone,
but it is not likely that Quits that
number will be Included. A good *»
hlUt from the Port Steele district is
also being sent forward.
The resolutions dealt wtth tt ths
Resolved that the Secretary of this
association be instructed to writs the
Hon. Wm. Sloan, minister of mines at
Victoria, B.C., stating that It ts ths
desire of the organized prospecton
of Bast Kootenay to express to him
their opinions upon certain matters
of general interest to the prospectors
of this province and also of vital value
to the business of prospecting generally and mining interests, as well as
to him en minister ln the provincial
government, especially responsible
for tho control and general sdvanos*
ment of such Industries as depend upon the success of the prospecting sod
or branch of the mining Industry, and
therefore ln n spirit of cooperation,
and with s viow solely towards ths
thoughtful co-ordination of effort, we
wish to lYepeclfnlly request of him
pormflsslon to suggest and consult
with him regarding a plan which we
feol might N.ul, If followed, to better
result* in a geneml way In regard to
governmental effort.-: 'o assist Une pro-
mxctors of this province, and not only
simplify tlie Inbors of Ms staff, but,
through tho consultation with ths various prostHYtorn' tmsm-latlons of the
province by tho mining recorders, resident mining engineers and himself,
much bottcr team work could be secured.
This resolution goes on at length
to state along what lines ths suggested co-operation might follow mentioning tho possibility of an annual mining convention for the province and
the formation of a provincial prospectors' body, witli an executive t > handle matters of moment as they might
occur during the year.
Other resolutions were as follows:
Resolved that the secretary of this
association be instructed to writs the
Hon. minister of mines at Victoria,
BC, requesting him to take into consideration ths seriousness of the lack
of a custom ore-sampling plant located anywhere in the Interior of the
province where prospecton and
small operators might send their small
shipments of ore and sell tarns for
prompt returns which would enable
them to greatly augment their development work and mining operation*,
aad as far as possiblo to attempt to,
alleviate the conditions by some means
within his power.
Resolved that tha secretary Im Instructed to write tbe Hon. Wn, Sloan,
minister of mines at Victoria, BjO.
and ask him to consider ths advisability of making provision for tht placing on exhibition at the International Mining convtntlons et Spokane and
Portland dnrtnsj tke

Vote Bone Dry
Nova Scotia Flics up Heaviest
Majority Against Import of
Liquor Into Province
Tho province.* uf Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba aim Nova Scotia
[voted on Monday on a plebiscite to
determine whether or not tha importation of liquor shall 'bo allowed from
point* without tholr borders lo [toints
within. It wati not altogetihor ou Uie
question of prohibiting complete iu-
ter-provinclal trade, etace export can
Im carried on for instance from any of
these province* to a wet province,
such as B.C. The plebiscite against
Importation carried In all four provinces by estimated majorities as follows:
Nova Scotia  30,000
Alberta   8,763
Saskatchewan       10,000
Manitoba     15,000
By the result of the plebiscite held
In thia province last week, B.C. thus
puts herself out of joint with the
prairie provinces. Had tlie prohibition act been sustained In B.C. last
week the electore would have had
early in the new year the same opportunity of voting on Importation as
the other provinces had on Monday.
But the Dominion Government has ruled that this plebiscite is strictly contingent upon the province desiring It
having already carried prohibition as
far as its own powers permit.

STAMPS NEXT MONTH
Ottawa. — Thc Department of Cus-
toiiiH and Inland Revenue has Issued
formal Instructions thut on and after
November lst. 1920, the luxury taxes will be collected by means of excise tax stamps.
Retail firms selling goods subject
to these excise or luxury taxes should

FOLLOWING   CABINET  SESSION ON SATURDAY BE-
CI8I0N IS REACHED
NOMINATION BAY SET FOR
WEDNESDAY, NOV. 10th
Measure for Govt. Control Must
Become One of Main Planks
In Oliver** Platform
Premier Oliver has at last quit
beating around the bush in the matter of an election, aud comes out with
the definite announcement that It will
be held on Wednesday, December lst.
Nomination Day has been set for Wednesday, November 10.
This decision waa reached during a
session of the cabinet held at Victor-
la on Saturday last. It Is known
that some of the mlnlstiers favored
putting the dote for the election on at
least one week, preferring to set: the
date about the 8th of December. The
date finally decided upon, taking Into
consideration the distance from the
capital to some of the northern ridings, and the time consumed ln reaching them by mail, is the earliest possible date upon whdeh an election
could be staged, within a day or so.
Three weeks must elapse between
nomination day and polling day which
accounts for the fact that nomination
day ls less than two weeks off. tf
Premier Oliver Is in such a desperate
rush to get the election over, It Is
rather surprising that he did not take
the opportunity of holding tlie election at the same time as the liquor
plebiscite on Wednesday last.
Naturally with the definite announcement of an election date, the
political pot which has been simmering for some time p&t now begins to
boil pretty vigorously. All parties
In tbe contest are getting pretty well
warmed up. The air Ib full of rumors as to who the possible candidates are, and in tills constituency
there are known to be a number of
political dark horses awaiting the
choice of nominating conventions.
The local Conservatives are busy
perfecting organization arrangements
and a meeting is announced for Friday evening of this week In the Edison Theatre, when formal organization will take place with the election
of delegates to the nominating convention which takes place on Wednesday next. Ladies are cordlatly invited to attend tills meeting on Priday evening. The matter of central
committee rooms Is also receiving attention. Aa to who Is likely to get
the Conservative nomination in this
riding, any announcement at this
time would he premature.
The government forces are already
rallying to the call, and have taken
over the quarters recently vacated by
the prohibitionists In the Hanson
block as headquarters. They are
bringing the Premier himself Into the
riding to open the campaign with a
burst of enthusiasm apparently at a
meeting next week, when Dr. King
will also speak in addition to the Premier. Whether Dr. King will again
become the government standard-
bearer is not yet definitely known, the
fact that other names are being mentioned In connection with the Liberal
nomination seeming to Indicate that
It Is not yet an entirely settled matter.
It ls also understood that there will
also be a Labor-Socialist candidate
In the field here the name of Mr.
Chas. Bidder, of Marysvllle, being
mentioned ln this connection.
It Is announced that the same officials who acted as returning officers
In the plebiscite will also act during
the election. It la also understood
that the same voters' lists will be
used without any alterations, additions or deletions.
Premier Oliver announces that ln
a day or so he will Issue a manifesto
setting forth his general lines of pot-
ASSOCIATED BOARBS
OF TRADE MEETING
THIS WEEK AT FERNIE
Good   Representation   Looked
For at First Regular Meeting of New Body
Several provisional dates were Bet
for the meeting of ttie Associated
Hoards of Trade of South Eastern
llrltlsh Columbia, but it was not until
Mills week that it' has been possible to
actually convene the meeting. It constitutes the first meeting since formal
•organization of tho new body took
place at Invermere last May. Officers
are fo be elected for the ensuing year,
■and a good deal of business in the
way of resolutions, perfecting the organization, etc., is Mkely to come up.
From Cranbrook Messrs. O. J.
Spreull, president of the local board,
and also tlrst! president of the Associated Boards, with W. H. Wilson and
J. P. Pink were expecting to be present ut thc mooting. Mr. B. O. Hamilton, secretary of the Associated
Boards, and Mr. R. R, Bruco, came
down from Invermere on Wednesday,
•and wore to represent with others
the Board of Trade of tlie Windermere district at this meeting, while representatives from Creston were also expected to put ln an appearance. It was not known whether there would be any representation
from the Golden Board of Trade.
Just as we go to press we learn that
officers elected for the ensuing year
were tlie same as were previously
'holding offlce. No representatives
from Creston or Golden were able to
be present, but greetings were seal
from both places, and an assurance of

AIMS TO CO-OPERATE
WITH SCHOOL BOARBS
OF THE PROVINCE
Secretary   of   B.C.   Teachers'
Federation Sets Forth Alms
Animating That Body
In view of the fast that the teachers of tbe Cranbrook district are endeavoring to get a branch of the B.C.
Teachers' Federation organized here,
or a teachers' institute as they are
sometimes called, a statement ot the
alms of that body, as set forth by H.
Charlesworth, the secretary, is of interest. Mr. Charlesworth Is expected In the city shortly to meet the teachers In regard to formal organization of an institute here. In speaking at the recent convention of the
B. C. School Trustees' Association,
held at Nelson, Mr. Charlesworth gave
an address on "Co-Operation for Educational Progress." He made i
powerful appeal for closer relationship between the organizations of the
trustees and teachers. Tbe teachers'
federation had for Its aim, he said, cooperation In Ideals and practice, and
was not formed for any kind ot class
warfare.
Their first interest was to raise the
status of the profession, not salaries,
realizing that they were not employed so much in teaching face, but In
preparing pupils to meet life. They
were bearing in mind that they had
more to do than make ot the children
future citizens. They must teach
them to be real children while they
were young.
They wished to see the profession
made more attractive for men. The
period of training should be lengthened; they had caused it to be extended to twelve months, but wanted this
to be doubled. Teachers were not to
be given permanent certificates until
they had proved their worth In the
Held. Another Improvement had been
effected whereby a second-class certificated teacher could qualify for a first
by a university course.
Reading courses for teachers ln rural schools had been arranged, and
New Y.M.C.A.
Secretary Here
J. M. Clark Comes from Calgary
to Take Charge of Local
Popular Institution
Mr. J. Morrison Clark, accompanied by Mrs. Clark and son, arrived in
the city Tuesday evening. Mr. Clark
comes to take up the work of general
secretary of the Railway Y. M. C, A.
here, succeeding Rev. R. E. Pow. who
Is relinquishing the position at the
end of the month.
Mr. Clark is a Canadian by birth,
and has had twelve years experience
In Y. M. C. A. work, both as physical director and general secretary.
(For the past eighteen months or so
has been connected with the Calgary
Y. M. C. A. as membership and extension secretary. Tlie latter piiase
of the work consisting of undertaking classes in physical development
und along other lines ln tbe outlying
districts of the city of Calgary, and
among the poorer classes, was to have
occupied a good deal of Mr. Clark's
tlmo had he remained there this win-'
ter.
A native of Prince Edward Island,
Mr. Clark got his first Y. M. C. A. experience at Charlettetown, and also
ut Sidney Mines. He spent a year at
Boston as Physical Director, and four
years at Franklin, Conn., as general
secretary. He took training for physical work at the Harvard School,
und thus appears to havo gained a
thorough all-round knowledge and experience which should go far towards
enabling him to take up with the
work in this city. Mr. Clark also
I has a record ot two years in
tlie Royal Canadian Naval Service, on
Atlantic patrol service. He ofTered
himself for enlistment for army service overseas, but on account of just
having undergone an operation, was
not accepted.
Rev. R. E. Pow has been Inducting
Mr. Clark into his new duties during

Saunders—Turner
(Special to tbe Herald)
Invermere, B.C., Oct. 26.—On Monday last there was solemnized at the
home of the bride. "The Beavers.''
the marriage of Dorothy, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. T. W. Turner, and
Mr. Harry Saunders, of Vernon. Miss
Mary Turner, the bride's sister, acted as bridesmaid, and Mr. Gilbert H.
Cartwrlght was groomsman. Owing
to iti not being .possible to obtain the
services of an ordained clergyman,
the ceremony was in the form of a
civil conract, Mr. Frank Richardson,
J.P., tying the knot.
The popularity of the bride was testified to by the usual handsome array
of presents, and by a handsome
cheque, which was the result of a popular subscription.
A reception to the young couple
in the form of a dance was held last
week at Athalmer. The newly wedded pair have gone to Vernon, where
they will reside. Miss Turner has
been operator at central for five and
a half years prior to her marriage.

DIMENSIONS OF MAJORITY
SURPRISE TO BOTH PARTIES IN CONTEST
THIS CONSTITUENCY
GOES WET BY ABOUT 250
(oast Sections Go Strongly in
Same Direction—Some Figures from Main Points
For govt, control   76,166
For present prohibition act ... 45,478
Majority for govt, control...30,687
These figures represent approximately Uie result of the liquor plebiscite
taken In this province last Wednesday. There are still returns to como
in from some of tbe outlying districts,
and there has yet to bo made the offl-
clal recount which may take in and allocate to the right constituencies the
absentee vote recorded at the different polling stations. The new figures obtained by taking these factors
mto consideration will represent the
inul result of the plebiscite, but In
.he main tbe proportion as noted in
the figures above will not be altered.
The official recount is understood to
H taking place this week at most
places.
The result of the poll was an eq-
aal surprise to both parties. A close
■esult was looked for, with neither
ile having much of a majority in the
final analysis. The coast cities were
expected to break even, and right here
In the Cranbrook constituency the prohibitionists were looking for a majority, even if it were only a small one.
The figures Bhow that government
control passed muster in this district
by a far smaller majority than in
many other places. While It ls impossible to secure complete figures
from all the polling stations in the
constituency, it would appear that the
wet majority is no more than about
260. This would <seetu to indicate
that some effective work was accomplished by the prohibition organization, inasmuch as a better showing
wae made here than elsewhere. It
was not until about a week before the
voting day that It became really apparent to the prohibition workers upon just what points the majority of
ihose opposing* them were taking up
-.heir position, and then it became ap-
;-arent that the fight was being wag-
■yl not on behalf of the abstract principle of prohibition, but rather on the
•listing act and Its workability. Undoubtedly many people voted government control who believe ln prohibition if they can see where lt Is going
to be worked out. But the die Is
now cast, and h Is for tbe exponents
of government control to show that
they can "deliver the goods," as lt
were and exemplify the principles of
moderation that were preached so religiously by the league which rejoiced
In that attractive sounding title.

B.C. AND THE PLEBISCITE
The results oi the plebiscite
on Wednesday of last week will
not bring forth any whining
from the prohibition party. Us
supporters have weathered
much adversity and many stormy gales in past years and are
too well seasoned in former
campaigns to want to lay down
their arms in the warfare for
progress. Kor the time being
the victory goeB to the liquor
party, which was able to assemble, even to its own surprise, a
wonderful coalition of diverse
elements. Students of coalitions, however, know too well
the general weaknesses of such
groupings to believe that a permanent solution has been
reached and that such a policy
that must ensue has any hope
of a long and vigorous life.
The overwhelming results attained this week in the liquor
plebiscites taken in four of the
other provinces for total prohibition, show up in clear contrast to the result in this province.    Either the people of B.C.
are vastly different   in   their
mental makeup to the electorate in other provinces, or the
issue has not been presented in
a clear-cut fashion to the people of B.C.   The former anyone
should be loathe to believe. We
did maintain during the campaign, however, that the issue
at stake was a subtle one; that
it  was  befogged, and that the
prohibition act was blamed for
conditions regarding which the
prohibition party had no control whatsoever.    Too well do
the results show this to be true.
Today B.C. is ashamed of herself, and lives for the day when
she can reverse the decision of
Wednesday last, and line herself up with her sister provinces on the front line of progress.    Without a doubt there
is an overwhelming desire in
B.C. to create a fair and beauti
ful   province,   but   what  was
brought about last week, sincerely by many, It is true, but
still thoughtlessly, will in no
wlBe assist towards   this   end.
The reaction will come Just as
surely as the rising sun.      No
single group or combination of
groups will be able to raise a
coalition strong enough to stem
the wave of semtiment in favor of prohibition.     Strive   as
the moderationists  may, they
will discover in the near future
that   tlieir   wonderful liberty-
Bounding moderation platform
is really the remotest desire of
the liquor interests. They have
never   known   moderation —
their success lias always depended upon excess.       They   an
nounce that they do not want a
return   of   tho open bar-room
conditions, but that is only one
of their catch-penny phrases,
for they fought tooth and nail
against the abolition of those
conditions even.     Any busin
ess or commodity which needs
government control, as it is
now to be applied to intoxicating liquors in B.C., is a danger
to the state, and the prohibition sentiment in B.C. will never rest until a business, admitted to be a menace, ls forever
thrust from the life of the people.
Probably sooner than many
expect the opportunity for further action may present itself.
We shall soon witness actual
conditions in the other western
provinces which will be a marked contrast to what is likely
to obtain here. The desire for
uniformity will certainly grow
B.C. will realize that lt can
no more dam up the tide of
such legislation than Canute of
old was able to keep back the
floods of the sea. The "fanaticism" of the prohibition party is not the dynamic behind
the movement, but a recognition on the part of clear thinkers that whatever thwarts moral and economic progress must
be thrown overboard regardless
of the fact that some are blind
to basic facts and seek only to
promote selfish ends under the
cry of liberty.

"HONEST JOHN" ON TRIAL.
Premier Oliver has placed
himself at the bar of public opinion, and asks that the people
of the province render their
verdict on his record on the lst
of December. As late as only
a day or so before the plebiscite
of last week the Premier wired
a reply in response to an en
quiry as to whether it was true
that there would be an immediate appeal to the people in the
event ' of government control
carrying, that "the report was
without foundation." A short
time previous to that he had
made the facetious statement
that "there would be an election within a twelve month."
.Vow lt transpires that not more
than a day or two following the
taking of tho plebiscite, and before actual dissolution took
place on Saturday last, the proclamations for the election
were already in the mails for
the more outlying constltuen
cies.
It is Inevitable that the result of the plebiscite will now
enter into the field of provin
cial politics—if it were never
there before. It is stated that
the government will formulate
the broad principles of the act
by which it is proposed to put
government sale of liquor into
force, and take them on to the
hustings. If this is to be so
the people have a right to expect that those principles be
not mere genenalities, but
something definite that will
shed real light on the working
out of government sale in the
province. As a matter of fact
the time to have done this was
before the plebiscite.
By his own admission the
formulating of such an act ls
going to be distasteful to the
Premier. He expressed great
surprise when apprised that
prohibition had lost out at the
plebiscite, and has given out
the statement that he voted for
prohibition. If this is the case
how can his heart be in the task
of formulating a government
control measure? If he does
not take to it any more enthusiastically than he took to the
enforcement of the prohibition
act, then lt will be a beautiful
system of government control
that is to be instituted.
Perhaps the process of "passing the buck" in the matter
of the enforcement of the prohibition act, and the subsequent

MESSAGE

FROM THE  TIEW-rOIXI OF
OUB C0NTEHP0BABII8
putting of a referendum to the'wns erected to mark the burial spot
people seemed a good way out J0' fll° criminal. There lt stood tor
for the Premier to take, but the
most astute of politicians sometimes miscalculate, and the best
laid plans will at times go
awry, and the Premier now
finds himself on this question
alone in a vastly more difficult
position than before. If his
"control" is real and drastic, it
will not just accord with a big
dement on the "wet side," and
,lf on the other hand it is to be
a shoddy measure, then there
will be the "dry" vote to consider, for in an election a vote
of fifty thousand or bo is not to
be held in too light esteem.
There will be an opportunity
after his own showing here to
deal more fully with his general policy, but in the meantime
the people will look eagerly for
his promised outline of the
measure for government control.

Worse Off Than Before.
|    In   the   workingmen's   strongholds,
has Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King; wi,ero the o. b. u. is in control, they

folk in the west entertain for'Iecti"8,t,,,le ""»«, and went solidly
., ... ... .1 for prohibition.    It may he laid down

the distrustful sentiment Which! iirinning   men   to   win  an  Industrial
found   voice  in  the   Toronto!light.
Daily News   some   little time!   TllB resu|t is disappointing, for we
since in an editorial,   as   follows:
"The objection to Mr. Mackenzie
King Vet. not la his messa*,-.. hut iu
his own past hiBtory. While Canada's soldiers wero lighting overseas
Mr. King was drawing a salary ot
$10.0(10 or {12,000 from the Rockefellers in the United States. He prac-
tiially deserted Canada after the Laurier Government's defeat in 1911, and
we arc unable to find a single Instance
In whicli he showed any interest in'
this country's defenders ln Prance
and Flanders.
"A contemporary speaks of one of
Mr. Mackenzie King's speeches
"scintillating with brilliant gems of
thought-" Some of Mr. King's former speeches have fairly bristled
with such jewels. The Toronto Globe
ot August 22, 1911, quoted him as appealing to the German citizens of
Kitchener — then Berlin — against
building superdreadnaughtB to assist
Kngland ln fighting the Kaiser's ships
In the North Sea.
"ln an unusually eloquent address
matte before the Ontario Reform Association on July 20, 1917, Mr. King
opposed the selective draft determined upon by parliament ae the only available means of securing reinforcements for the hard-pressed Canadian
army. He was obviously ready to
leave the country's defenders unsupported ln the most critical months of
the war. In view of those mountain
peaks Jn Mr. King's career, we do not
think that anything which he may
now say is ot particular Interest to
the Canadian people."
are In a worse position than under
the license system, for then there
were some restrictions. Now the
people have gone Into the game blindfolded without even any assurances
from an attorney-general in whom
very few people have any confidence.
I.hiuor \vill iu future be a part of a
lioliticn! machine and its use or abuse governed hy party exigencies. The
people have given 'tlie government a
power, which, backed by the wealth
of the liquor Intorests, may prove a
lasting injury to the province. No
provision has been made for proper
control of the traffic. The prohibition net is dead and the liquor traf-
lie running wildcat. — Kaslo Kooten-

THE RED CROSS
Until nearly 16 years ago there
had stood at the corner of Dorches-
er und Ouy Btreets, In the city of
Montreal, a shining red cross. Every
stranger who came to the city wns
Interested in the story It recalled.
It marked the burial place of a
murderer named Helisle, who had
paid the penalty for hts crime on the
scaffold. He lived In Dorchester
Htri'i't near the place where the red
cross was planted In later years. On
the other side of the road—for It was
only » country highway ln thoso days
—lived a farmer named Jean Pavre
The story was current that the farmer kept a large amount of money ln
bin little hut. It roused the envy of
Delisle, who finally planned to secure the treasure. Bo one night be
broke Into the log house and made
the attempt. The farmer defended
his home and wealth with the result
he was Bhot first and then stabbed
to death, Then the murderer, fear-
ful of recognition by the wife, Btab-
hflU her too and beat the body horribly with a spade he found ln tbe
place.
Dut when the crime was discovered, suspicion fastened itself upon Be-
Hsle very quickly. He was arrested
and at the trial found guilty of the
double tragedy. The sentence was
that ho should be put to the torture
and broken alive. A special scaffold was erected In tbe market place
of Montreal, now Place Royale, where
Tn the presence of aftout 1,000 spectators he paid the price of his wrong.
He wai burled out In tht country at

Hon. John Hart,  provincial minister of finance, issued a cull last week
for bids   on   another million dollar
loan tor the .province, and in view of
the later development of au election
being"   called,    Btill  Hnsist»   Uut   tt
will be put through.    The proceeds of
the loan are to be devoted   to   tlie
purposes of tin, .provincial, department
of Industries.      Following the floatation recently of a three million dollar bond issue for P. G. & E, purposes, which wus taken up by a Seattle
concern, a willingness lias  been expressed in the same quarter to absorb
another bond isHtie on tho same terms.
The fact that tho exchange  rate  Is
running high against Canada permitted tlie American Iniyers to pay what
seemed a good prlco for the last loan,
and yet netted American  investor** a
good price, but by the same line of
argument such a deal might not look
good   to   thoso wlio have repay tbo
loan.     Tho proceeds of the pro-posed
million dollar Issue was to permit of
further loans by the department of industries     to    enterprises  wbcli  have
made application for assistance.     At
a recent meeting of the advisory board
of   the   department applications for
loans  aggregating    nearly    $900,000
were* up for consideration, aud the re
commendations of the board were to
have been placed before the cabinet
for final approval.     It is, more than
likely now, however, that these applications will be held  in abeyance to
await the outcome of the election to
be held early in December.

(Special to the Herald)
liLVurraore, B.C., Oct. Ii3. — Within' a Ruiictit jierlod tliere have passed
away tvo of tlie pioneera who have
takim u hand in tlie building up of
thin tnJand. empire. The first of
tlifiie wa» -Hon. F. W. Aylmer, who
passed awuy at liia liome In Chase,
B.C., and tt»& Becond waB Mr. John
Buiman, who dia'.l at Vancouver.
The    HoTiorubfo    Frederrlc    Whlt-
vorth   Aylmer, to*m  In 1850,  was a
.--on of tlie late Bur-on Aylmer, and a
brother of the present holder of the
title, who lives at yubeo's Bay, British Columftta.     A civil engineer by
■irofession. ho joined the<tattkfl of tho
builders of the Canadian Padtfc R**11-
way, and name Into the far w-esis-   I****
ter he became Interested In fara','D8
and took up more than one piece C*
land under pre-empUon or otherwise
in the Valley of the Columbia River.;
It was while here, ln a moment of ad-
venture, that he joined with Oeorge
Hopo Johnson, now of Calgary, as a
inemher of a posse that went aftw an'j
alleged horse thief,  whom tbey cap-!
u ml a fi.w miles to the west 'of the
present village of Wilmer.  and  per-
etuatcd tlie event    by    having  the
name of the creek,  which  was tWi
known as Number On* Creek, change-
ed to Horsethlef Creek, by which it?,
is still widely known.     Further than
that, he was one of the original own
ers in the present townslte of Athalmer, and the old original family name
at Mr. Aylmer's Is thus perpetuated
locally in  the naming of that- place,
Mr.  Aylmer became district engineer
for the department of  public  works
for the* dominion government, which
i-titf   lie   retained   until   1912,     after
which he retired, and was succeeded
by Mr. J, V. Forde, of the city of Nelson.
The second pioneer, Mr. John Buiman. -was born at Hay ton, Cumberland. In Kngland, on October 3rd, in
tho year 1855. He came iuto this part
direct from Liverpool in 1893, when
the country was still young, bringing
his wife and small family with htm.
I Iiu recount of the trip from Golden
to Windermere by way of boat on the
Columbia Hlver is Interesting to hear.
In referring to to it he says: "We left
Qolden about the middle of October,
1898, per the 8. S. Hyak. A scow
waa pushed before the bow of the lit-
tie boat, which was loaded with baled hay, nnd on board this craft for
three days we made our home, the
hay being our bedroom floor and our
mattresses respectively." After residing for seven years at Thunder
HIH and Canal Flats, Mr. Buiman
joined the service of the provincial
government ns mining recorder at
Windermere. From there he was moved to the government office at Golden, where he became government
agent, which post he relinquished on
account of falling health, shortly before the time of his death, which took
place at  Vancouver,  to which  place
From details lately available concerning the escape  from custody of
l-azuk and Urlck, the Skookumchuck
hold-up men, who were sentenced at
the Fernle ABBlzes to five years ln the
penitentiary, lt appears that the mon
made    a    very audacious breakaway
from the hands of justice.        Tbey
Jumped from a moving Kettle Valley
train   a   few miles west   of   Grand
ForkB.     Chief Splller of Fernie was
I In charge of two other persons being
taken out to the Coast In the body of
a   passenger car,   while tho hold-up
men, lu change of two constables, had
to occupy a smoking compartment in
n car, owing to the crowded condition
of tie train.     Shortly after 4.30 a.m.
the Wain left Grand Forks, and owing  t-9 Intense  over-fatigue  the  two
constables were dotting.     During one
of these dozing spells    the prisoners
took advantage of the occasion to remove themselves from the train.   Although they were handcuffed together they were able to accomplish this
on account of the fact (that the train
was only moving slowly at the time
up a steep grade.    Their absence was
very soon discovered, and the chase
taken  up by tbe mounted police, as
well as the Grand Forks police, and
the trail of the escaped men was easily traced for several miles.     Se far
f they are still at liberty, and as the
8t»<H where they regained their liberty fs only a few miles from the boun-
dajy line1, they may have been able to
crww  wef  inta ^  United  States.
There is tfrnVeovel* a Wg Doukhobor
settlement iin  the nelghlliwhood,  and
the fugltlws being r.kln te.ljhese people In tongue -may have foutid # .liMOn

WAR LOAN BEING MET
Advices from Paris and Nsw'Vork
state that trance is paying every dol

waa repayable In New York on October 15. This was France's share of
the 1600,0*0,000 Anglo-French loan,
which was floated in the United States during the war. Great Britain
has also met her share of tha obligation. This goes to show that the
European- countries are recovering
from the financial straits Into which
the war idunged them. Over there
they have a, way of financing themselves out of actional bankrupcy and not
saying very much ahout lt. All the

who did not cast n ballot on the referendum will not be srtuck off the

"Tho new election act saye that if
a voter does not vote he shall he
struck off the list at the next court

he can get on again he shall make
application nnd that the application
shall be posted 30 duys before a court

act says tbat in matters of this sort
the general elections act shall govern. This meant thnt those who did
not vote Wednesday would be lal.on
off the list nt the next court of revision. If that occurred many would
be deprived of the right to vote at
tho provincial election election.
"There is, however, n clause in the
referendum act enabling the government by order-tn-councll to pass
special regulations governing the referendum vote, and It is assumed from
the communication from the attorney-general's office that the government Intends to pass an order declaring that those who did not vote on

MASY MEN AVAILING
THEMSELVES OF NEW
FORM OF INSURANCE
Dominion Government's Legislation for Benefit of Returned Men Proving Popular
Ottawa. —■ Insurance to the value
of over a million and a half dollars
lias been Issued by the Dominion Government since the Returned Soldiers'
Insurance Act became effective a short
time ago. Already about 115,000 ln
premiums has been received, and hundreds of enquiries are being received
ut the offices of the department* The
majority of the premiums Issued so
far have been for 15,000, the maximum allowed under the act to any one
Individual. While the scheme was devised primarily for the purpose of
extending protection for the families
of men who were impaired physically
by the war, and so unable to obtain
insurance from the straight life companies, a large number of physically
lit men are also availing themselves
of ths opportunity to participate In
tlie government Insurance scheme.

DENOUNCES USE OF
ROSS RIFLE DURING
WAR BY GOVERNMENT
Canon Scott,   Canadian Chaplain, Says Lives Were Needlessly Lost By Its Use
In the course ot a lecture tour during which he has spoken ln most of
the larger cities of the west, Canon
Scott, a prominent Chaplain, who saw
much service with tlle Canadian forces overseas, has been reviving what
was at one time a live question ln tha
country, namely, the merits or otherwise of the Ross rifle, as largely used
by the Canadian Expeditionary Por-
Canon Scott had an interesting
war experience, finally becoming one
a battalion chaplain after he had
taken some steps ln the matter on his
own initlr-lve and without any official
encouragement. He went into the
front line trenches with the 16th battalion, and was an eyewltnoss ot the
first experiences of tho Canadians
with German gas.
He blazes into wrath at the issue of
the Ross ride after he says lt had
been proven useless and futile for
service purposes. "The Ross rifle
was forced on our men,** the Canon
saya. I know this from a high staff
officer in tho Canadian' command, that
many of our men lost their lives by
bolng armed with the Ross rifle."
Why, ho lndignuntly asked, waB Sir
CliarlOM Ross, when he wanted no less
than 818,000,000, allowed 8:1,000,000 hy
tho Dominion Government, and tho
matter hushed up? The reason, Canon Scott says, Is that they dare not
let tho facte come to llithl. "Either
General Sir Sam Hughes, then mlnlstor of militia, wiro himself obsossed
with an Idea nnd would not lision to
General Aldorson or tn tho men's own
exporlenec, or nomoone wns making
money out of lt. 1 huve no party affiliations," in, continued, "but we want
to find out how it wns that our men
suffered and lost their lives as well
through being armed with the Roes rifle, and why it was that officers who
told tlie truth regarding the matter
were threatened with the loss ot their
commissions."
The Canon tells how officers would
come to the dressing stations to steal
away the British Lee Enfield rifles
from the wounded Tommies, so they
could arm their own men with them.
The Canon eald ho was going to speak
everywhere on this subject and ask
the government for an explanation.
'I want the strongest light thrown oo
it because the blood ot brave Canadian
soldiers rests on whewsr la responsible."
A woman ot questionable character
wae haled Into court on Tuesday morning thia week oo evidence obtained
by tha city poWce. Bin wai lined
aad ordoeed out ot tba att-r.
