The speaker explained how the Malay
followed the Negritos, who in turn
was followed by the Moro or Zulu,
but as he pointed out, today the
Christianized Malay is what we should
consider the Philipine of which there
are nine millions, these alone possessing the distinction of the Philipine
people und bearing the same relation
to Negritos as the* ordinary white
man of America does to the Apache
of America.

Untimely Death Regretted By
Large Circle of Friends
in the District
Much regret was expressed In this
city when it was learned on Thursduy evening last that Andrew Rosen,
of Jaffray, hail been killed In a premature explosion of dynamite at a
tie camp on the shores of Lake Windermere, whore he was engaged in
getting out ties on a C.P.R. contract.
Just how the mishap occurred will
never ho known, as the deceased was
alone at the time, but it is understood he was endeavoring to blast
out a big stump to clear a road.
The Into Mr. Rosen was well known
in this city, and well respected. He
bad been in the Jaffray district for
ovor twenty years, and in addition to
running a store there, was the postmaster, and also conducted a small
farm near Jaffray. In the winter
months ho usually husieri himself
with woods operations in a small way,
logging, getting out ties, etc., which
were of considerable benefit lo the
settlers in that district, providing employment for them. Mr. Rosen als#
owned a good deal of the land round
McBain's Lake, whicli he was splitting Up into small plots for sale, lie
is survived by a widow and two
daughters, tho elder of whom, Pauline
Rosen, is a student nt th ehlgh school
The remains of the late Mi*. Rosen
were brought to this city on Saturday last, and the funeral was held
on Wednesday afternoon from Knox
Church, Rev. M. S. Blackburn officiating. -The chureh was nearly
filled with the large number of
friends fi om Jaffray who were present to pay their last respects to one
whom they esteemed most highly.
The pa.stor gave a most appropriate
and comforting address, recommending to thc berenvtd ones the sources
of comfort, and pointing out the
value of all in fixing firmly their
faith on Him who had gone the journey before them. To those who
mourned he felt that tho esteem and
high rcpoid in which the deceased
was held should be to thorn a great
source of comfort.
The funeral cortege tc the grave
was  a   large   one,   ahout   twenty-five
cars being in tin* procession. Thc
pall hi arers were as follows: Sam

Rotary Club and other interested citizens, to which hud been invited the
visiting teams aa well as the Cran-'
brook and Kimberley hockey teams.
Much credit is due Mr. G. T. Moir
for the happy thought and the hard

of the pleasant function. With regard to the dinner itself it was most
thoroughly enjoyed, the excellent
menu provided and the offcient service rendered being much appreciated,

they had put up. In the opinion of

claimed that Cranbrook would be
phased to welcome again at any time
teams like Greenwood and Michel.
Manager Hall, of Michel, extend;
ed thanks for the hospitality t.f the
citizens of Crunbrook and complimented Greenwood on their hard
fought  game.
Greenwood  Hockey   History
W. Smith, manager of tho Greenwood team, in responding to the toast
to tlu* greatest Ltt'e town in tbe
west, expressed his pleasure at being
present and asked the chairman to
accept on behalf of himself and ihe
Greenwood team their sincere thanks

F. Brand Outlines Scope
of Work Brotherhood
Might Undertake
In another column reference is
made to an address by Mr. N. F.
Brand, the American consul nt Fernie, on "Directing the Pack," at the
United Church Tuesday evening, addressing the Young People's Society.
Mr. Brand has been visiting Crnnbrook for the purpose of interesting
the people in the Beaver Brotherhood.
A yeur ago a Men's Club was organized in the United Church at Fer-
, along somewhat unique lines.
The club has prospered beyond nil
expectations; today it has a membership of 89. But, ns Mr. Brand
expressed it, their first year was
largely one of experiment. They
met bi-weekly to eat together and
to listen to and discuss edifying papers and addresses, und sung the usual community songs, but us to their
real purpose in life they were more
less left ut sea. Their constitu-'
tion, like thnt of most men's brotherhoods, contained the usual high-
sounding but vague "objects"; but
they really had not found their objective.
Take   Up  Boys'   Work
Finally, after much discussion,
they came upon the truth, which,
strange to say, had been staring them
in the face all the while. The proper busintss of a men's club or brotherhood is "work among the boys."
Immediately the Fernie Club made
this discovery, they set to work.
They organized three boy's groups,
tecund a log cabin in the mountains,
three miles from town, and fitted it
up. Thither the boys snowshoe two
or three times a week, play games,
hold their meetings, sing songs, and
return at ten at night, as the rule
The club has not stopped here.
They are now engaged in converting
the old Methodist church building at
Fernie into an institutional centre,
where the boys shall have their meeting rooms, a gym and an auditorium;
and the girls, too, for the lady workers have also organized three groups
of girls.
Thc further the men's club went
in this matter, the more keenly they
felt the need for a general brotherhood throughout Kootenay and southern  Alberta;   a   brotherhood  which
Saturday afternoon last a quartette of Kimberley badminton piny-
ers, consisting of Mr. and Mrs. Cnld-
woll, Miss Blackwood nnd A. A. Lilly,
met a representation from the Parish
Hull Badminton Club here, in a siries
of games. Tho honors wont all to
thc Crunbrook players, hut the visitors put up some good games, and the
matches wore all hard-played affairs.
The four Cranbrook players were
Mrs. G. F. Marsh, Mrs. G. S. Mcintosh, M. A. Beale and Dr. W. A.
The events played wore ladies'
doubles, gentlemen's doubles, and
four matches of mixed doubles, Cranbrook being successful iu them all
'n the aggregate, though the visitors
were the winners in a few of the
individual games.
In nn extra event the Cranbrook
ladies met the Kimberley gentlemen,
and in this were ulso able to hold
their own.
On Saturday representatives of the
Centrul School Badminton Club will
meet the Parish Hall Club players in
a series of games.
Mr. A. B. Smith returned on Sunday from Vancouver and Victoria
where he had been in attendance nt
nu etings of the Advisory Board of
the Farmers' Institute. The duty of
this bourd is principally to sift out
the resolutions of all the Farmers' Institutes for the nine districts of the
province before these are presented
to the stnnding committee of Agriculture, for submission to the Legislature, besides which all matters which
ure to be presented to the different
departments of the government, as
well as matter to be sent to Ottawa
for consideration, art taken up by
this board. Mr. Smith reports that
the government extended satisfactory
hearings to all the representations of
the board. The board proper sat until January 29th; after which Mr. A.
B. Smith and W. Harrison, together
with the secretary, remained to present matters to the legislature, as
well as to interview the department
on several matters.

Graham paid a tribute to the value
of sport, claiming that far too little

most important to play the game
cleanly, to take a defeat with a smile
and to bear a victory gracefully. It
could be taken as an accepted principle tint if h man played the game

had withdrawn from the play Mr.
Shannon took oeeasiun to criticize
the position in which the teams uf the

In response to the toast lo the Cran.
brook hockey cluh Mr. Hogarth said
ho regretted that Cranbrook had not
got very far ihis year, which he claim
ed was possibly due to the fact that
tbis is the age of the women and that

order that the support of the ladies'
team might .not be interfered with.

that this is a matter in which the

A very successful—-concert Wus
staged bv the Yahk young folk on
Saturday last in the Mill HaU. The
hall wns very well arranged, and the
entertainers performed before a ca-
pacity house. Mr. C. V. Edwards
opened with a very nicely rendered |
p'ano solo, which was heartily encored. Some members of the local C.G.
LT, then appeared, gaily clad in old
time dresses, and singing "In the
Days of Those Queer Old Time Fashions," being well encored. Miss M.
Kdwards followed with a solo entitled
"I'll Forget You," which called for
i well deserved encore. Next was a
very comical sketch by the young
nun, portraying the methods of Dr.
Kilh'm Quick ond hia too able assistant, This item brought much laughter, Mr. Dan Hamilton followed with
a very nicely played cornet solo en-.
titled "Old Pal," and obliged with
"The End of a Perfect Day-V as an
encore. Some of the Trail Rangers
then appeared in a comic skit entitled "An Irish Schoolmaster," nnd
as an encore followed with "An'
American Sam Waller." Both mim-1
bers met with greut approval. Next
was a solo by Mrs. L. P. Williams, I
entitled "Smilhv Through," and as
un encore returned with "I Hear;
Your Voice in the Shadows." The
main play of the evening was then
staged by the young people. "Getting Off" was the title of this, and
the young people had certainly got it
off pat. The entertainers showed
clearly that local talent on these lines
is certainly not absent in Yahk. The
setting in this was very tastefully
arranged, and this, in a good measure, helped the players to put on one
of the best acts ever seen in our local
ball. The characters in this play
were as follows: grandmother (very
deaf—sometimes), Miss M, Edwards;
mother, Miss Lena Brogan; Nona
(married daughter), Miss M, Stewart; Julia, Miss Grace Raker; Hilde-
garde (Julia's little sister), Miss-F.
Baum; Mr. Thornton (Bill), Mr. Dan
Hamilton. An outline of the play
runs something like this: Mr. Thornton, who has been sick, having sufficiently recovered, is leaving for
Springfield and is expected to call on
Julia th's evening. The whole family is desirous that he shall propose
to her before leaving, particularly
grandmother and Hlldegarde, who
are both romantically inclined. We
find Hlldegarde preparing what she
calls "a love bower." Later, grandmother diplomatically instructs Bill
on the proper manner in which to
propose. Bill follows this advice,
and after quite a few interruptions
manages to make himself understood
and is accepted. The concert then
ended by everyone singing "God Save
the King." Much credit is due to
those in charge of the whole performance, Undoubtedly much time
and trouble had been spent in mnking this concert the success thnt it
certainly was.

The question is often asked: "With
what type of hand is the preemptive or'
■hut-out bid sound or advisably?" Tbe
preemptive bid ia sound when two elements are present. First, wben the bid
can go game with but average help from
partner; and second, if, in cane tlie bid
fails to make, it will save or shut out a
game bid by the opponents, ln other
words, a sound preemptive bid is either
a game maker or a game saver. A shutout bid, from this angle, should be at
leant three in spades, four in hearts and
five in clubs or diamonds. Don't make
the mistake, however, of bidding three
spades if you hold good help for hearts;
or of bidding four hearts if you hold
good help for spades. The object of all
sound bidding is to arrive at thc best
bid of the combined hands and a shutout bid that makes this result impossible is unsound. The following hand was
submitted recent ly aud an opinion a||tcd
as to the proper bid:
    Hearts — A, 10, 3
:      Y      :   Clubs —J, 10,3
1A        B :   Diamonds — none
I      Z      :   Spades—A,g,10,8,7,o,2
No score, Y-Z a game In. Z dealt aad
passed. If A and Y also passed, what
should B bid? B's projier bid is one
spade. The reason for this bid, rather
than one of three spades, is that partner
may bid hearts, and if so, thc hand
should be played at hearts rat her than
spades, If, however, opponents bid
hearts or one of thc other suits, lonrt !i
handshould bid to three spades, irrespective of help by partner, lt ia -strong
enough to warrant a three spade bid
but should bc bid only one at first to
get the heart bid from partner if possible.
Preemptive bids as a rule should lie
avoided and only handled by player*
who understand why and when to mnke
them. They are apt to react on the
bidder and be a source of loss, rather
than gain. If handled at ull, they should
be used with great discretion.

The new Western Garage and Service Station erected by Messrs. Hacker and Miggins, opened to the public
this week, carrying a full line of gasoline and the various oils, and such
items usually stocked on garage
shelves. The owners have built a
thoroughly equipped place of business
and are in a position to make repairs
of all kinds. The aub-agency for
Pontiac cars, which are expected to be
popular in the district this year, has
been secured by them, with full authority to make sales, accept cars in
trade and arrange easy payments if
necessary. Both Mr. Hacker and Mr.
Miggins are experienced men in the
garage industry, and their services
will probably be much in demand, especially during the tourist season this
summer. Accessories of all kinds will
be placed on sale.

Tuesdny evening nt the home of the

Hall, at Wuldo, with the local ladles'
team. Owing to the stormy weather
that evening only a few members
turned out, but it was decided later
that, since the Ideal team have had
no practice since last fall, and also
as no accomodation for indoor practice can bc secured, the challenge
must nt present be declined, with a
view to taking it up when the teams
arc organized about April 1st for the
coming sason.
Mr. and Mrs. T. Sing left on Friday for their home in Vulcan, Alta,,

' Local hockey fans and friends of
various members of the Cranbrook
"Pontiacs," ladles' hockey team, were
pleased, indeed, to hear of their wi»
big carnival, the score being 2-0, obviously pointing to a close game. Ac-
curding to the opinion of locnl sportsmen, the one victory alone has justified the girls' trip to Banff, if no
others nre won during the next few
days of the contests.
A hockey match wus played on the
local rink on Sunday afternoon, when
the Waldo senior team motored to
Wardner, the final tally going in favor of the Waldo men, alter a splendid game. Play during the first
period was as fine an exhibition as
one could wish to see, both sides putting out good work, the score nt the
end of this period standing nt 2-0 in
favor of tho home team. The second
period wus, if anything, faster than
the first the play in both being stug-
cd mainly around the visitors" goal,
although nt limes the Wnldo men succeeded in driving the puck down the
ice to the local gonl, only to be stopped before gaining a good shooting
position. In the second period Wardner again scored, while Waldo also
managed lo get past the local goalkeeper by one shut. At the close of
the second period lhe score stood at
IM, still in the locals' favor, Nat-
urally, the excitement was high, when
the teams took the ice for the third
nnd last period. In this Wuldo play
ed their best hockey, working in splen
did combination, scoring two goals
within five minutes after the starting
whistle wus blown, thus tiuing the
score. Both teams now got down to
battle, amid the cheery boosting of
fans, and Wuldo managed to score
the winning gonl just before the time
whistle wus blown. Although in the
first two periods the locals outplayed
and outskated their oponents, in the
third, the latter retaliated by some of
the best hockey ever seen on local
ice, making magnificent rushes down
the ice time und again. On the local
team it is hard to compare. Andy
Powell played bis usual game, which
is alwuys a pleasure to see. J,n this
he was ably backed by Rollie and

was further handicapped a little by
the absence of Harry Moore and Sam
Thompson, two stars, who were unable to piny that afternoon. A large
crowd guthered at the ring to witness
the game, supplemented largely by
Waldo fans who motored to town. A

Not Businesslike
Approaching the financial showing
of the province, Mr. Jones recalled
bow the Premier in certain of his
speeches while on tour had aptly
do'v'gnnted the government managers
of thnt important "joint stock company business in which the people
of this province nre the shareholders." As shareholders, inquiry must
necussurily be made as to why, if
prosperity is so general and tbe outlook so exceedingly roseate throughout the province, thu government
should nevertheless find it necessary
to write off as bad debts so many
outstanding items of tuxes. $8,808,-
193 iu all wus written off in six years,
while in this period collections had
totalled but $288,467, loss $60,278

"Is it n criterion of competent
business management," Mr. Junes
asked, "that these six years should
show such a red ink total? Is it indicative of competence in the management of the provincial company

-   Contradictory  Opinions
Then there was the mutter of deferred assets, with the Pacific Great
Eastern figuring as of $29,27:1,540
value to the province. Could anyone have made such a deduction from
what the Premier had had to say
about it on the floor of the House
this session? On the contrary, would
they not have correctly interpreted
the loader of the government as regarding it as a total loss? It had
been pictured by the Premier as the
province's very special Jonah, and he
in his lamentations over it had assumed thc mantle of Jeremiah. Surely the finance minister could not
have been listening to his leader or
he would not have ventured to so
directly challenge that gentleman's
judgement of values? If the Premier
hud been light, then the finance
minister's showing must be classed
rather more than merely deceptive.
The two obviously could not be reconciled.
The provincial books in 1925 showed revenue of $19,381,511, an increase of $2,394,358; and for 192C
estimated revenue of $18,340,000, an
nctual revenue of $21,775,869. Yet
despite the very appreciable margin
in the nctual over the anticipated
revenue, expenditures last year were
found to have over-run by $3,481,-

Expenses Increase Faster

province were found to have increased by $15,582,000, despite which tax-
ation contradictorily had increased*

Passing to' conaideration of the
provincial debt, ut 1903-16, Mr. Jones
reviewed the position jf thc McBride
government in that period. When
Mr. McBride took office in 1903, the
provincial debt stood at $12,500,000.
From thut year until 1915, borrowings aggregated $12,470,000, bringing the debt total up to $24,980,000.
of this $4,200,000 was paid off, leaving $20,780,000, less $2,563,000

of $18,217,000. The gross debt in
1910 was $233,163,140. Sir Richard
McBride during his long tenure of
public office added to tbe public debt
but $7,167,6458. Yet in these last
six years of Conservative administration roads to the value of $17,4550,-

Season's Greetings
Romance of a C.P.R. Telegraph Form
He had ruined a mahogany table top before he called attention to what he
was doing, by asking the clerk for Seasons Greetings envelopes to match
the decorative tops of the Canadian Pacif.c Telegraph forms, which he had
separated from a dozen blanks with an old jack knife. He-wanted to send one
to teacher and one to each of his particular friends. They were red and blue
and green and looked for all the world-like-real Christmas cards. The
Telegraph Agent looked at the table top and looked at the kid. The boy won.
Hu feet were wet, his hands blue, his overcoat a reach-me-down, and his age
eight or ten. He left the office fifty cents to the good and next year Canadian
Pacific accounts will carry an item "to repairing one table top." Such is the
Christmas Spirit.
Monsters of a Million Years Ago
View ol "Bad   Unit" of  Alhtru.    UtiieO
•T'he majority of tourists who travel across the open
* prairies on the Canadian Pacific line east of Calgary, are unaware as they look towards the north
that there Is to be found anything to interest them
except the prairies and prairie towns. . But not many
miles distant from the railway, where the Hod Deer
River cuts through the prairie, lies a valley known
as the "Bad Lands." This is a valley beside which
the Rocky mountains are young—a valley whose
bottom-lands record that once they were an inland
sea along whose shores, millions and millions of years
ago, lived those walking, creeping, crawling monsters
known as dinosaurs.
Only with the discovery of the dinosaur skeletons,
and as a result of the numerous expeditions sent into
tho Bad Lands of the Red Deer by the Government
and by museums both in Canuda and in lho United
States, has the river valley taken on a wider interest.
Each season adds not only to the numbei of collecting parties but also to the number of tourists who
are attracted by the picturesque character of the canyon and whose imagination is thrilled with the thought
of the age-long secrets which the valley is beginning
to make known.
When and how did these donosaurs live? What
was the world like during the time when they flourished? How would this very valley have appeared
at that time and what other creatures were to be
found there with them? Such questions naturally
arise as the dinosaurs take on a larger measure of
At first one is likely to think of all these extinct
animals as merely prehistoric, living hundreds of
years, of course, before even Tut-ankh-amon, but perhaps at the same time as our cave-dwetling ancestors,
with whom they may have contended for thc mastery
of the earth. The written records on which history
Is based extend back, comparatively speaking, only a
few centuries; even the oldest, those of Egypt and
Chaldaea, cover but sixty centuries. The still earlier
periods when man lived in savage and barbaric tribes
take us back only one hundred thousand years, and

extinct even at that time. In bigness these dinosaurs
have never been exceeded, Thc herbivorous group
were the largest; they browsed on the rushy vegetation anil among the ferns ard bushes, or stood up and
grasjwd trees wilh their fore-legs while they devoured
tbe foliage. Many of these were giraffe-like waders
whose long fore-limbs and immensely longer necks
enabled them to take refuge In deeper waters, more
out of reach of the fierce carnivores of the land. The
Dlplodocus, a herbivorous dinosaur whose skeleton is
in the Carnegie Museum, Pittsburgh, measures eighty-
seven feet in length, and a still more colossal one
found later and known as Glgantosaurus measures
well over one hundred feet.
The carnivorous or flesh-eating groups were not
so large; they were more active, however, and preyed
upon the herbivores. Though equipped with frightful
weapons they were considerably inferior in intelligence to the modern crocodile or lizard and far below
the bird or mammal. Of these, Tyrannosaurus seems
almost "the last word in frightful ness." It reached
the length of forty-seven feet, and in a standing position the animal was eighteen to twenty feet high as
against twelve feet for the largest African elephant.
The long deep powerful jaws were set with teeth from
three to Six inches long and an inch wide,
To protect them from these flesh-eating dinosaurs,
many of the herbivorous ones were completely encased in armor. Such as AakylesaoTUS, Plates covered the skull, neck, back and hips, nnd even the belly
was covered by a pliable mosaic of small close-set
plates, It was further protected by a movable plate
that could be dropped like a shutter over each eye.

the Courier, but sheer spite. I
Now there is thc spectacle of the editor of the
Courier, having vociferously shouted for a celebration to be sponsored by one body, and having editorially backed sentiments that deprecated any imperial significance being giveu to the celebration,
actually seconding a resolution that repudiates his
own editorial stand, and recommending that the
celebration arrangements be tarried on under entirely different auspices. This is one phase of its
irresponsible—to put it very considerately—attitude
that needs elucidation.
Another is the question of the Courier abrogating to itself the right to invite another Canadian,
just as interested in the adequate celebration of
Canada's diamond jubilee as itself, to take the next
boat back home, ls there no room for diverse opinions in lhc Kootenays, which may have equal merit?
Is the country not large enough for varied ideas?
Apparently uot, iu the view of the Courier. It takes
the position, and in the language of the gutter expatiates on it, that if any other paper dare express
a contrary view to its own, then a flood of abuse
and ridicule is called for.

which its audience will
NO doubt the people of East Kootenay generally
will join with the Herald in expressing the
hope that it i- not true the Courier will go no
further in the pleasant little discussions it has been
engaged in regarding other papers, weekly and daily
of late. Tlu- public will agree, particularly in view
of iln- developments of the past week, that there
are more questions the Courier should elucidate, and
explanations to be made on
be held breathless.
Before coming to these perhaps a digression
can bc sanctioned in order to show how far the
Courier has strayed from the original issue which it
raised itself not the Herald—and how little regard
it has for tin* ordinary niceties of life, by which if
a mistake is made there is at least an admission of
it. or if not there can be allowed a reiteration. Thc
Courier's policy instead is to attempt to cover up
one faux pas with another, and then seek to wriggle
out of ils untenable position in a smokescreen of
abuse,  sarcasm and cheap wit
The Herald took exception to an editorial statement made by the Courier that the Cranbrook correspondent oi tbe Xelson News did not know what
they were talking about; that it had heen stated
there were lo lie only four beer licenses granted in
Cranbrook. Tlie Herald showed this was not what
was said, bin thc Courier blithely disregarded this
and changed ils tactics into a frontal attack on this
paper. The Herald again repeats what it said in
the first place, lhal such a statement from the Courier was only made wilh the object in view of be-
littlemcnt and from motives of spite. That this is
true w.as demonstrated when thc following week
came another onslaught against the Nelson News
for daring to criticize in an editorial sentiments to
which the Courier thereby gave implied support,
along with a tirade against this paper.
The Herald slated iwo weeks ago that such were
but reflections of the methods which the Courier
employs in discussions of thi.s nature, aud no better
commentary on this could be had than the editorial
effort witli which the Courier again comes forth last
week. The Herald stated, and does so with more
emphasis and aptness than before, that the Courier
has shown once again that it cannot treat any criticism made of ii with any regard for truth, logic and
moderation, lis editorial last week is a characteristic tissue of falsity and misrepresentation, too
crude lo be logical, and most immoderate in its expressions of hyperbole ami exaggeration. It can
be quickly passed over as such, with but one com
ment, which is to point out just how the Courier
seeks to evade any reply to the first statement made
by the Herald.
From a too generous sense of magnanimity,
the Herald refrained from further embarassing the
Courier by making any reference last week to the
interesting situation which the Courier found itself
in as a result of its second headlong assault on the
Xelson News, Perhaps it was the kind providence
that looks after newspaper saints and angels' that
placed in our bauds a cluh with which we were very
much tempted to smite the Courier as it sought on
its hands aud knees lo crawl out of the hole in which
it found that its over-ardent brand of Canadianism
had placed it. It was certainly the chance of a lifetime.
Thc fact remains tiiat the anomalous position in
whicb the Courier now stands in regard to the fostering of a Dominion Hay celebration here by a local
organization is a direct outcome of one of its ill
tempered attacks on anything or anyone who dares
to offer an opinion counter to its own egotistical
ideas. Xot only so, but this same spirit has succeeded in placing in an entirely wrong light a local
organization which.Jcft to itself, would most likely
have carried to a creditable conclusion a project
which all Canadians, native antl adopted, are heartily
in sympathy with. The Courier cannot evade the
fact that ihr turn of events by'which it now seems
that this same organization must give way to others
in fostering lhe project, was precipitated entirely
liy its hasty defence of an article, which it has since
in its own edilorial column contradicted. It all goes
to show thai it was not a matter ol principle with'
Further evidence of this crops up in another
qttarler when the Courier dubs a representative of
the returned men—wdio thought enough of his
adopted country to fight for the very liberties tbat
thc Courier is now badly abusing—"a native Britisher of jingo tendencies." Not content with this,
thc Courier deliberately misrepresents for its own
purposes what was said by the same returned man,
Why was this done? For the same reason—because
au opinion diverse to that of the Courier was ex-
pressed. What a crime!- And now that the Courier
has changed its tunc by seconding a resolution that
the returned men themselves drew up, deeming it
more discreet apparently than to make good on a
threat to "give them another dose of it," no doubt
it wishes it had held its horses somewhat.
This i.s a long story, but not longer than thc
singular duplicity of the Courier deserves, and there*
is more to it yet. In the meantime, if it can be done
without dragging in what it thinks of thc Herald
and those connected with it—which is already an
old story, as plenty of references to its editorial
columns will show—the public in general would wei*
come a sane, impersonal and logical statement as
to just what the Courier does stand for in regard
to the points wliich it started out bravely to criticize,
and then lost sight of in the maze of its own con
fused verbiage.

IT i.s noted that an explanation has apparently been
made by way of a letter commented on in the
Nelson News on Wednesday, of thc statement that
appeared in both local papers last week, purporting
to come from the Cranbrook Assembly, Native Sons
of Canada, in respect to an article recently appearing
in the "Canadian," and commented on by tbe Nelson
News and the Courier.    Mr. J. F. Huchcroft admit
the authorship of the statement, but-.though his let
ter to the News is not published, it is evident there
is further explanation still needed, and it seems a
pity that seeing the matter concerned the local pa
pers as well, they have not been furnished with a
similar communication.
It was Mr. Huchcroft himself wdio volunteered
to furnish for the Herald a statement of the stand
of the Native Sons on tlie sentiments expressed in
the article which was complained of. That was hot
handed in till a few minutes before going to press.
and was placed in a space about the size which Mr.
Huchcroft had previously indicated would be re
quired for it. In undertaking to furnish this state
ment for thc newspapers, Mr. Huchcroft did so in
order that it might be set out correctly, and not be
mistaken. This is distinctly what was slated to
tbe Herald.
In his explanation made to the Nelson News,
Mr. Huchcroft refers to "two statements" which
were handed in, one of which was the resolution
proper of the Native Sons, and the other which he
says were sonic comments of his own. The impression he seeks to give, apparently, is that these
were confused in publication, but this was not the
case, as it will be noted that both local papers took
tbe same impression of the statement. The state
ment, in point of fact, was all ou one sheet, closely
written, and if the different paragraphs represented
different classes of material, there was nothing in
the world to distinguish ii. The first paragraph
which is now designated as the resolution proper,
does not contain all that some who were present
at the meeting which authorized its presentation
understood it should. On the statement handed iu
it wns in quotation marks just as published, but
there was nothing to make it clear that the remainder of the wording was not also a part of the statement.
But even granting they were private comment
and not authorized by the Assembly, what would
they be prepared for and handed in to a newspaper,
if not for publication, and coming from one whom
the Herald knew was undertaking the preparation
of an official statement on the matter, what other
interpretation could bc put on it than that it was all
for publication?
These explanations are made in justice to all
concerned, so that any impression may be corrected
that the Herald was anxious to give undue prominence to sentiments which were supposed to be representative of the feeling of the Native Sons, but
which it now turns out were not. Nevertheless,
it would have created a better impression if thc
author of the statement had seen his way clear to
make any correction of wrong impressions arising from the construction of the document through
the local press first.
Canada In a
Q-—Where did the nnme
"Canada" come from?
A.—The name "Canada" is
probably derived from the Huron word "Knnndn," which means
"a village or settlement." The
early French writers used the
term "Canadten" to designate
the Algonquin tribes on or near
the St. Lawience, as distinguished from the Algonkin nnd Mic-
mnc. Jacques Cartier applied
the name Canada to the country adjacent to Stadaconn (Quebec), the chief of which he designated as "the King of Canada."

Pew people realise that money can be systematically saved, and
invested in safe securities to produce wealth and regular income.
Many who could be accumulating a fortune and an independent income fail to do so by thinking that the little they could save periodically is not worth while. In the greater number of instances, wealth
is not the result of luck, but the ability to earn, save, and invest
Money can be put to work and yield a good return without any
great risk and the small savings of the wage earner can do it as
surely hs the larger savings of the professional or business mnn.
The smaller a man's income, the greater his need for provision

EXCERPT from Minute of Executive Meeting of

RESOLVED:—that this branch of the Canadian Legion
deeply regrets that Cranbrook Assembly No. 22 of the Native
Sons of Canada though it fitting to contribute the Resolution,
which they did, to the local press. In connection with thc celebration of Canada's Diamond Jubilee and THAT the thc final
paragraph of the Resolution was, to say the least of it,
inopportune and illadvised.
THAT this branch believes that the feeling conveyed in
the Resolution referred to is not shared by the great majority
of the local Assembly but that harm has nevertheless resulted
which will militate against the loyal and enthusiastic co-operation necessary to ensure success, THEREFORE is is suggested that His Worship, the Mayor, as representing the community, be respectfully requested to convene a meeting of all
interested so that preparations may be made to celebrate
worthily this great day in the history of Canada.

Dr. A. J. MacGillivary, moderator
of thc Presbyterian Church in Canada, who has been visiting various
parts of the provinces aad the middle
west, spoke on Tuesday night before
a good audience in Knox Presbyterian Church, for the information and
encouragement of the congregation.
Referring to the strong Presby-
lerian Church remaining in the Central synods, he snld that the inference
was plain' that the chureh would
again be strong in the east and west.
He expressed gratification at the fart
that there are two hundred and fifty
preaching places in the west already,
and that Saskatchewan showed an
Increase of 250 per cent for the' past
year. Dr. MacGillivary feels confident thnt ut the present rate of pro-
j gross the Church will soon be back
I to its standing of former years.
Regaining Ground
Regarding the ability of the
Chureh to look after any financial
problems that may arise, he claimed
there is little fear when it is considered thoy gave 18,810,000 in 1925.
With regard to membership, while
not in u position to give accurate fig-
ere an
UTOB, he knew thut the growth had
been enormous, and felt sure that
when the census of Canada was taken! it would .show a Presbyterian
population of over half a million.
While the recollection of the great
withdrawal with the recent losses entailed is by no means u happy one,
it is pleasing to realize that they
were still linked up with the great
parent body of thc* Presbyterian
Church, with its past achievements
and bright promises for the future.
The speaker felt that while the division that had been wrought hud
been the cause of much sorrow on
the part of many, it was pleasing to
know that 9,600 others had, in the
first year after separation, joined Unchurch on profession of i faith. He
extolled the truly wonderful spirit of
the people, As in the affairs of the
state the spirit of the peoplo is the
determining factor, so in the Church
the spirit displayed   Is the gauge   by
which its greatness may be measured.
The more unconquerable the spirit,
Lhe greater the success possible,
The speaker praised the unequalled
liberality of the people, giving many
examples of this, He tiad no fears
for the financial aspect with churches
made up largely of those ready at
all times to do anything for eon-
science and conviction's sake. A happy result of the separation was the
family or spirit of friendliness which
had been created; the congregations
were more like families.
Ample Scope For Churches
In conclusion, the speaker claimed
that they could give good and sufficient reasons why the Pre§byt( rian
.'liureh should continue, one being
that as the Presbyterian Church in
the past had made a special contribution to the religious life of the country, it should be preserved in order
that this contribution might be continued. He felt that there was nn
abundant scope for the Presbyterian
Church in Canada, and recommended
them to pray for its continuance, assuring them that in later years, in
'ooking back on what at this time
might be considered dark spot,
would stand out in reality as the
brightest in the history of the

the pastor, Kev. M. S. Blackburn,

On Tuesday evening of this week
Brigadier Layman, of the Salvation
Army, Divisional Commander, conducted the usual week-night meeting
In the local hall. A good crowd wns
present, nnd the Brigadier gave a
very interesting address on "Burden
Bearing." He mentioned the yoke
by which oxen drew their burdens,
ind how, though a yoke-v.T.s a heavy
and a cutnbersome thing in appear- [
.inee, it had been found the on.y practicable wuy by which o>:.?n are able to
draw heavy loads. And so with men
and women, he s.iid, the easiest way
\o carry their different burdens was
under the yoke of Jesus Christ. He
pointed out that the idnner did
not lose his burden altogether when
he accepted the salvation of Christ,
but was shown the easiest way to
bear these burdens, Again, he Bald,
heie were many unnecessary burdens which we sometimes carried,
-uch ns worry, foolish habits and
ustoms, etc. One of which he made
special mention was thut of a mon
■r woman trying to live a Christian
<ife with sin still in their heart, and,
as he described it, trying to hold the
sin down. The one who uccepteiLthe
salvation of Jesus Christ was given a
new heart, entirely cleansed from
all sin. He closed his message with
an invitation to those who had not
lenrnt this wny of carrying their burdens to do so there and then.
Prior to thc meeting, the Brigadier
addressed the newly formed body of
Life Saving Scouts, and was immensely pleased with their showing*
He explained thc four-fold plan of
the L.S.S. organization, namely:
thi? Salvation of the Body, the Salvation of the Mind, the Salvation of
the Soul, the Salvation of Others.
He pointed out how each of these
four must be combined to build up
the best of characters, and *»id that
to be good Life Saving Scouts they
must do their best to carry out this

"Big Game Hunter i-auds Canadian Rockies
Col. Philip Moore, Princeton Graduate, big Kama
hunter, war veteran, und mountain climber, Is so
well known in the Canadian Purine Rockier that, as one
guide put .t, "he hails a gristly when* it passes him and
asks after .ts missus and tne cubs."  v
Ever since Col. Moore first vlsf'ed the mountainous
regions of Alberta and British Columbia, he has mina^-d
to spend part of each year hunting, camping, and climbing mountains. He returned recently from a summer *n-
ioyed n Yoho Valley, where he add) d a few more miles to
his 2,BOO mile record on horseback as a member uf the
T-*aI1 Riders of the Canadian Rockies. •
• The building of good roads through the mountains and
the resultant growth in automobile traffic is a n-w
feature which adds greatly to the i\\zt**** tn tourist*.
The spelling jf the Bnnff Windermere road, und tbo road
from Lake Louise to Wapiu. thus making a tplondid
itghway ail tha way from ('ulgury through the Kicking
Horsb pass and the valley of the Yoho, has given tourists

cabins, perched on the shore of a crystal lake, and shadowed by overhanging mountain peaks. With u haversack on one's back, one may hike from camp to cump, or,
if one does not scorn the saddle, ride a pony along the
leafy trails.
All these pleasures Col. Moore has proved, and intends
to lecture this winter, as ha has heen ddlng for » number of
years, about the marvelous beauty of his beloved
mountains. He is not selfish. He wishes others to share

More Consideration To Requirements of Farmers On
the Land To Be Shown
(Special to Tho Herald)
Victoria, Feb. 5th.—Consideration
of suggestions for betterment of the
Game Act and regulations thereunder, in the legislative committee on
Agriculture nnd at a mooting of the
Game Conservation Boa*rd last weekend, showed fj. gratifying unanimity
of desire by all concerned to cement
extra-amicable relations between
sportmen and farmers, leuning toward the latter if the rival interests
canot be harmonized.
Farmer*  On  Game   Board
The Game Board of seven will be
reconstituted, * with three farmer
members hereafter. Farmers will receive free permits to trap on and
near their properties, without taking
out trappers' licenses. Free gun licenses for the farmer to shoot game
birds and beasts at any time on his
property or even beyond its boundaries, if injury is done by the woods-
folk, in future will be carried by thc
police and gnme board officers, for
the greater convenience of the man
on the soil.
Bounty of $7.50 will be paid for
coyote (except winter killed) and
bounties will be revived to encourage
the destruction of big horned owls,
gOH-hawks and the Cooper hawk, all
enemies of the agriculturist.
Fostering   the Fur Farm
Development of fur farming as a
sideline of the hinterland settler's activities, will be specially encouraged,
Major Furber, chief game inspector,
seeing in this new industry (there
are now 320 fur farms operating in
this province) possibilities of the
highest importance to British Columbia growth and prosperity.
This province, he told the Agricultural Committee, is infinitely better
capitalized for success in fur farming than any other part of the American continent, in suituble territory,
climate, available basic stock, etc.   It
much better endowed in those essentials than is Louisiana, yet the
fur farms of that state last year reported a product of the market value
of fifty million dollars.
on careful study of nil phases of the
subject, reasonable development of
fur farming in British Columbia will
assure a yearly production of five
Limes the fur wealth of Louisianna,
or $250,000,000 annually, making
this industry twice as important as
fisheries and as great a source of
provincial wealth as fisheries and
mining combined.
Indiscriminate Killing
A serious situation, based on the
allowance to farmers of the right to
kill game at any time for crop protection, is brought to public notice
by M. B. Jackson. This is the seriously developed practice of Asiatic
gardeners and farmers of killing
game birds wholesale and indiscrimi
nately, not for crop protection but
for the large profits derivable
through tho surreptitious sale of
pheasants und quail moro particularly, both in and out of season.
Elsewhere iu this issues these is
published tho condensed statement of
the Great West Life Assurance Co.,
of Winnipg, covering the past year's
operations, which will he read with
interest by the many shareholders of
tho company in this district.
During 1926 the Company has progressed in a manner quite consistent
with its previous history. The new
business production has been maintained at ubout the same high level
which wus reached last year. The
business in force is now well over 450
million dollars. The surplus earnings
have been increased and tho expense
rates have been maintained on a very
moderate basis. While the death rate
was a little higher ythnn during 11)25,
it was nevertheless vory favorable.
The gross interest rate continues at
over 0^9r, and a net rate of 6%
will he maintained during 1927 for
the payment of interest on policy
proceeds nnd other funds left with
the Company,
During the past fifteen years tho
business of Life Insurance has broadened out into new and extensive
fields. As mentioned above, policyholders now require tbo companies
not only to insure their lives, but
nlso to retain and administer the proceeds of their policies after maturity.
The Great West Life now insures
people not only against death and old
age, but also against total and permanent disability, aud many policies
contain provisions whereby the claim
will be doubled if death occurs by
accident. The business under the
disability and accident plans is assuming large proportions. During
lt»2G. the premiums received from
those two sources wcre'$2:i6,40St,001
und in both respects the experience
during the year was favorable.
Regarding investments, the company has experienced no reuson to
depart from their policy of favoring
first mortages, but the demand for
mortagos has not been equal to tho
supply of money, and we have been
forced to purchase a considerable
amount of bonds. Their bond holdings now amount to over twenty-
seven millions, as against nbout thir-

the bonds nearly thirteen millions
have been either issued or guaranteed
by the Dominion and Provincial governments. The interest past due on
bonds is an insignificant item, and it
has been decreasing annually. The
Great West could now sell their
bonds on the market for nearly one
million more than tho amounts at
which they have been taken into the
financial statement.
Thc Company has not entered any
new territory since 1922, and it is
not the intention of tbe directors to
do so. at least in the near future.
They believe they can moat surely
maintain a high dividend scale by an
intensive cultivation of their present
fields, rather than by spreading out
over wider areas. So long, therefore, as their present territory is sufficient to yield reasonable increases
En new business, there does not seem
to bo any valid argument for an extension.
A ebroner*s inquest was held at
Fernie last week to inquire into the
death of Leung Quie, demented Chinaman, who ran amuck in Waldo,
B.C., on Docember 30th, shooting
Constable Sharpe, of Elko, and Frank
McNab,   of   Waldo,  and   who   later   	
died in the General hospital at Fer-'duty. Frank McNab was the recipient
nie from a self-inflicted bullet
Constable Ira A. Brown, of Fernie, in his evidence, stated he heard
two shots and muffled moans proceeding from inside the barricaded
shack, and communicated the information to Sgt. Greenwood that he
thought the Chinaman hnd shot him-
Upon the sergeant entering the
shack he found the Chinaman lying
on the floor wounded. He afterwards received a .455 Webley service revolver from Sgt. Greenwood,
which the latter stated he found under the Chinaman.
Chief Anderson, of the city police,
produced a heavy woollen sweater
and mackinaw worn by the Chinaman, which showed burnt powder
marks and holes through which the
bullet had passed in front, coming
out through the small buttoned belt
at the waist at the back of the mack'
in aw.
It was also given in evidence that
a bullet used in the Webley service
revolver fitted into the holes in the
sweater and mackinaw.
After hearing all the evidence, the
jury retired, bringing in a verdict of
suicide, that the said Chinaman had
met his death by a bullet wound, self-

Boos* Poured Into Sewer
Some 50,000 gallons of alcohol
were recently poured down the city
sewers at Regina, Sask. The work
was done by help employed by the
customs department and was carried
on under the supervision of a guard
of the R.C.M.P. The liquor has been
stored in bond since the days when
export houses were legally operated
in Saskatchewan in 1921-22.
Less than a week ago it was offered for sale at public auction and not
a single bid was received. Meantime

mounting up, while the customs duty

How urgently the building of the Canadian 1'acific Railway was needed
to link the apparent divisions of the
vast country called Hritish North
America! Fortunately men of "vision," determination and unswerving
resolutions were at the head of affairs, and nothing daunted, grasped
tho situation in the hour of peril and
one might say of hopelessness. These
stupendous difficulties and obstacles
were surmounted, and in spite of raw-
notions of Ill-advised disloyalists, the
Onion -lack became tbe permanent
Btnblem of Canadian loyalty, and not
some other patched up flag whicb represented nothing stable or commendable to men of spirit or self-reliance.
Rite of  the  Feniani   *
The return of Riel ttf Red River
was fl signal for the rem wal of councils amongst the Metis of St. Nor-
bert. O'Donoghue, meanwhile, endeavored to concentrate across the
boundary the Fenian forces with
whom he bad sought from the first
to identify the Insurrection! As early
as August, 1871, the Manitnbnn noticed rumors of Fenian preparations
under General O'Neil and O'Pono-j
ghue. The United States consul, J.
\V. Tnylor, seems to have hewn fully'
npprised of the movement in Septem-!
however, centres in the Metis of
Manitoba. The departure of Bishop
Tache just before the crisis, is only
one of the indications that with consideration the Metis were prepared to
part company with their allies of the
insurrection. A proclamation of
Lieutenant-Governor Archibald on
October 8rd was responded to by the
inhabitants of Kildonan and Winnipeg "almost to a man." On October
4th tho position of Riel formed the
subject of an interview between Governor Archibald and Pere Richot.
I'ere Richot on thc following day
wrote: "1 do not believe that he
should place himself at their head
Unless he had some guarantee that
his proceedings would bc looked upon
with favor by Your Excellency."
Governor Archibald r#lied that the

their leaders in defence of the Crown

nuthorizing him to defeat the pro-1 motion, nnd that-the Metis, without
ject without ceremony. From the
Fenians themselves little danger
seems to have been apprehended.
The newly appointed Dominion lands
agent, then on his way to the settlement, informed Bishop Tache, who
had jUBt left Red River for Ottawa,
that there were not more thnn seventy men in Pembina, and probably not
half that numher, and that there was
nothing to fear from outside forces,
all would depend on how it stood
with the Metis and others within the
province, l
It was wvident that O'Donoghue
was relying on the general support
of the insurgent party. In a letter
tiv the speaker of- the House of Commons in 1871), he affirmed that the
movement was merely a continuation
of the insurrection; that he held u
commission authorized by n resolu-
■ tion of the council held at niviero
Salle in September, 1870, nt which
Louis Kiel presided, and that his com
having been enthusiastic, had been
devoted. The Winnipeg volunteers
left for the border under Major Irvine on the evening of October 6th,
marching through deep prairie mud,
made almost impassable by torrents
of rain, only to hear that the "raid"
had already heen broken up. When
it was found that more than three
hundred and fifty Metis assembled
ut St. Boniface on Sunday, October
Rth, nnd had been reviewed by the
Lieutenant-Governor, and that Riel
and Lepine had been thanked in public and shaken by the hand- by the
representative of the Crown, the indignation of the British volunteers
could scarcely bo restrained. The
Liberals denounced the act as the climax of insult to loyal men in the
province. Tin* incident at Rt, Boniface virtually committing the govern*
mint, it was seen; to pardon after

the annual meeting held at Vancouver this week to permit of increasing
the membership to ten thousand, ahd
to take in the waiting list of applicants, did not receive the approval
of the directors, so that the organization will not for at least another yenr

Fernie district will have an appropriation of $35,000 for road work
this year as usual, plus 10 per cent.
In addition to this, $1,000 will be
spent on relief work Immediately.
There are about 25 or 30 men In
Fernie who seem to be unable to
secure employment, and these will be
offered work on the road near Hosmer, where there is quite a fill-in to
make. Over fifteen thousand dollars
wilt also be spent on road machinery
for the district. Nine thousand dol
lars will go toward a gas shovel,
$4,000* for a tractor and $2,700 for
an Adams grader. This machinery
is the very latest thing for road
work, und we can look forward to
some real permanent work being
done. Supt. Hayne says that when
the gas shovel arrives about the 1st
of April, he will immediately start
widening the road between Elko and
Fernie. Nothing'is being said at the
present time about the Corbin road,
which was promised for this year,
and it is thought that this project
may bc laid over for another year.
If this is the case it will be a severe
disappointment to the citizens of
Corbin, as well os Michel and Fernie.
