Returns From
Legion Meeting
D. Halcrow Reports Extremely Successful Winnipeg
I). Halcrow, chtof of pollco, who
was at Winnipeg lasl week as a dele-
Kate from tho ('ranbrook Post, Canadian Loglon, to tho Dominion convention of that body, returned on
Saturday last and reports a most mm*
cessful gathering of the returned
men. Mr. Hnlcrow was able tu pre-
aont a brief report of the convention
to tin* big Legion gathering on Saturday evening, while nt the afternoon
gathering he sent groatlngs forward
from  Sir Percy   Lake, the  president
of the Dominion organization.   Mr.
Halcrow states that had word been
received by Sir Percy Lake a few
hours sooner, he would in all probability have been in Crnnbrook for
the opening, but having made other
orrnngements, ho was unable to come
through this way. It is the intention
of Sir Percy to endeavor to visit this
eity in the summer months, accord-
ing to Mr. Halcrow, in the interests
of the Legion.
Imperailt To Join
The most momentous work of the
convention was, perhaps, the amicable amalgamation arrangements
which were made whereby the Imperial Veterr.ns' Association of Canada now becomes part of the organization of the Canadian Legion. Mr.
Halcrow served on the committee
whose work it was to draw up a basis for amalgamation, and as a result
of their labors, representatives of
the Imperial Veterans' Association
agreed, subject to the approval of
their individual branches, to become
part of the Legion, maintaining their
identity as an Imperial division. The
Canadian Legion itself is a composite
organization embracing many branches of ex-service men, and this last accession to their strength undoubtedly
serves to greatly increase their
sphere of influence.
Saint John, N.B., will be the venue of the 1928 convention of the
Canadian Legion. Tbe eastern eity
was selected after an impassioned appeal for assistance in arousing the returned soldiers in the Maritimes, and
completion of the organization work
started by Karl Haig on his last visit
to Canada.
Get   Through   Much   Buiineu
According to Brigadier-General A.
Ross, of Yorkton, Sask., moro business was transacted during the four-
day session of the convention than is
ordinarily passed upon by parliament
in six months. He warned against
the danger, however, of submitting
ill-considered legislative demands to
the government us harmful to the
future reputation ami influence of
the Legion.
Acclamations were accorded tlie
majority of the officers, the return
of Lieut.-General Sir Percy Lake, of
Victoria, B.C., to thc presidency, be
tng greeted with spontaneous demonstration of cheering and applause.
Sir Percy informed tlie convention
that he would not he in n position i>*
devote his whole time to tbe office,
as ho would he in England during the
greater part of the year. He sug
nested tbat a vice-president hi* elected Who could ably earry on during his

Some Recommendation!
Preferential treatment for returned soldier applicants for civil service
employment wns recommended in one
of the resolutions endorsed. It wns
also suggested that the system of
competitive examinations be continued and appointments made by merits.
The federal government will be
urged to add wnr service of civil servants towards their claim for superannuation, and to extend tbe Superannuation Act to embrace thc stotTs
of tho department of soldiers' civil
restablishment and the Soldiers' Settlement Board. Another resolution
urged that the soldiers' insurance
scheme be re-opened for one yeur
and that thc amount of insurance
which an applicant may curry, should
be increased to $10,1)00.
Legislation will be sought extending to aU mental cases attributable

Pontiacs   Fight   Hard,   But
Visiting Girls Get Five
Goal Lead
On Friday night last the newly organized Pontine hockey team made,
as it were, their stage entrance in
the hockey world, meeting the fast
Coleman ladies' team. While the
score was against the locnl ladies, the
game was an interesting one, and
when allowances are made, it will be
seen that tho Cranbrook team made
a better showing than they might ordinarily be credited with. At the last
moment Ihey were deprived of the
services of one of their best players
through the illness of Miss Bessie
Woodman. As before stated, it was
Cranbrook's first opposition against
a renl team and they were undoubtedly affected with stage fright. It waa
evident, however, that the team will
have to do a considerable amount
of practice before thoy can hope to
win against outside teams.
Fast   Opponents
Up against the flashy Coleman
team, who were able to get away
like stoel traps, it was seen that the
local girls lacked speed in getting
away, also in their ability to shoot
while skating, it apparently heing
necessary for them to stop to shoot.
This, of course, is only acquired after considerable practice. The combination play whieh was evident in
lho Coleman team when necessary.
should also be copied.
With respect to the Cranbrook
team, while it is possibly unfair to
make comparisons, the work nf Miss,
Prances Drummond in goal could
hardly be improved upon. Had it
not been for her brilliant playing,
'.ho score would undoubtedly have
bi en trebled. In conversation with
a Herald representative, the manager
of the Coleman team stated, "Take
it from me, you have n cracker-jack
of :i goal-keeper in Miss Drummond."
Mis- Greaves showed up well on the
defence, while considering thc prat -
ticc and experience they have had,
the Misses Slye and Moir. and Miss
Burton did well, making practically
ill the trya that won* made on the
Coleman goal.

The new Nnsh Ambassador and
Cavalier, with their French type
roofs and forward sweeping; backs
have been an outstanding attraction
at the big automobile shows held so
far this year. Crowds which literally iammed the Nash booth at the New
Work, Philadelphia, Buffafflo, Brooklyn, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and other
places, were outspoken in their enthusiasm for these newest Nash creations, On all sides the new Nasn
body conception is being referred to
as the most striking development in
the history of American closed eai
craftsmanship and it is freely prophc
aled that it would exert a profound
in f 1 ucnce u pon the whole f ut tire
trend of enclosed car body design in
this country.
As a mutter of fact this new Nash
design renllv inaugurates America's
rise to the heights long held  by the
great body designers of Europe
whose conceptions have always been
regarded as authentic. Now, under
the leadership of Nash, this country
may ba expected to reverse old time
traditions and establish itself ns the
world centre of motor cur style.
it will probably bo only a question of months before other large
motor car manufacturers will be developing models that pursue the general lines Nnsh has now inaugurated
in the Ambassador and Cavalier.
Or particular interest is the manner in which Nash body artists have
treated the roof-line nnd the rear of
the body. Their graceful contours
and perfect syinnu try, though strongly suggestive of the French mode, are
entirely original with Nash. And
the "town car" effect nt the front
is also a decided Nash innovation
that immediately captured the ad
miration of show visitors.
In developing Lliese two new models
Nnsh expert coloristfl produced un
other surprise in the wny of c.lorful
body finishes thut proved second only
to the design itself in interest U
inf darker tones for the upper Htru*
lure, fenders and running gear, und
llghti r tones for the body. Mash created a color harmony of exquisite
beauty. And lbe richly luxurious effect of lhe exterior is maintained
throughout the interior. All hardware, for example, is u beiuitlf'il
period design. The steering wheel,
window mouldings, nnd door panels
are of renl Circussiun walnut. The
Upholstery is deeply tufted and of
genuine Chnse VYlmo Mohuir velvet.
Both models feature a wealth of appointments and fitting of notable
fustefulness. As with nil other Nash
models the Ambassador and Cavalier are [lowered with the Nnsh 7-
bearing motor, the world's smoothest
type. The Ambassador is provided
upon the 127" wheol-bnso and the
; Cavalier is mounted on the Special

lnvermere, B.C., Jan. 2\t—Colonol
.1. S. Dennis, of Montreal, wlio is the
head  of   tho  development  branch   of
the Canadian Pacific Railway, takes
a very keen interest in all matters
pertaining to Western Canada and is
generous to a degree in encouraging
every good thing which will go to the
great west's development nnd the encouragement of its young people in
agricultural communities. Late last
year he ottered to the board of trustees of the Athulmer-Invermere
Schools a cash prize of twenty-five
dollars to be divided amongst those
who might write the best essay in
their respective school division on the
important subject of "The Possibilities of Development in the Columbia
Valley," meaning in this particular
instance that part of the Columbia
Valley which lies within the area of
East Kootonay. The announcement
of Colonel Dennis's kind offer resulted in a great interest heing taken
by the scholars in lhe contest and
many essays were submitted to the
Judges for their decision. After an
impartial reading had been given ol

was   handed   out   declaring   Charles

re good sites for fur furms all along
the valley, especially muskrat. This
mrce chould bo developed more,
for there is no difficulty in selling
pelts, as excellent markets are provided all over Canada and the United
States. ,
If all this was done it could be at
a comparatively low cost, it would, in
the end, pay for itself again and
again, making this a more attractive,
wealthier, and thickly populated valley.
The Possibility of Development of the
Natural   Resources  of   the
Columbin  Valley
The   possibility  of developing the
natural   resources   of   tlu*   Columbia
Valley are greut in many respc
In this valley there are ut least six
resources, which, if fully developed
would  udd  to  the  prosperity of til
present   inhabitants,   and   encourage
an influx of immigrants, thus adding
to the wealth of the valley.
Tbe main resource of this valley,
and the mainstay of lhe populace,
lies in the fertility of the land. The
output of agricultural produce could
he increased liy several means. The
land al present under cultivation
could be built to au increased production hy fertilization, Much suitable waste land could he cleared or
drained, brought under the plough,
and turned into areas of productive
fertility. Again, good land which

in the valley from potatoes, alfalfa

power. Good sites are provided
111 several of the large erceks and
rivers. Dams made in these of concrete or other stable material would
servo the double purpose of conserving wator for irrigation and domestic
use, and (by installing turbines and
other necessary machinery) for gen-
crating electrical power. This would
provide light for the towns and villages at a low cost, and would also
provide power for mills, garages or
other machinery.
Exporting minerals brings a good
revenue to the valley. All the mines
art* fairly well developed but the
chief drawback lies in conveying tlte
ore from the mines to the railroad.
This difficulty which has caused many
good mines to remain undeveloped,
could bo partly removed by improving and building roads and tramways
where possible, also by covering bad
places in the road with snow-sheds
where snow slides come down and
menace transportation. A concentrator could be built in a central position for all the mines, making
easier the shipping of ore.
Lumbering is another resource
whieh enn be developed. Large
traets of burned timber can be felled
and used for either telephone or
telegraph polos, ties, construct ion
material, and the remainder, whieh
can not he commercially used, sold
for firewood. The land so cleared
ean be replanted with a new growth
Of trees which would help beautify
tho valley.
Another resource is the natural
beauty of the valley. It alone brings
more profit than nearly any other
one, first by the amount of tourist
traffic it draws, and second, by motion picture companies coming iu to
take films. It could be developed by
saving the forests from fire and
other ruthless destruction and keeping the natural beauty intact. Buildings to be erected near highways
should be as handsome as possible so
as not to dilute the beauty of the
ICOnory, Any help in making the
beauty of this valley greater pays for
itself in the tourist traffic and trade
that it draws.

liiito a number of small fruits grown
in the valley such as strawberries,
raspberries, gooseberries, red, black
ami white currants, cherries, and
loganberries. Dairying is practised

senior club was not formed until
1821, while the first club in Halifax
is just over a century old, having
been founded in 1825. About the
middle of the Inst century the clubs
in what is now known as Quebec and
the eastern part of Ontario were organized into a branch of the Royal
Caledonian Club, and this branch has
grown until it now comprises 64 clubs
(of which 18 ate ladies' clubs) and a
total membership of about 4,000.
With the founding of clubs in other
parts of the Dominion, provincial
branches of the Royal Caledonian
Curling Club were organized. In
round numbers there are 20 clubs in
Nova Scotia, 15 in New Brunswick,
and 115 in central and western Ontario. Of those in the Ontario branch
at least six are ladies' clubs.

The popularity gained by curling
in the prairie provinces of Manitoba,
Saskatchewan and Alberta is remarkable. The sport in the Canadian west

gameB were played on the Red River
in Winnipeg. Almost immediately a
club was started, and the first club
matches were played in a tent on the
present site of the Grain Exchange
Building. Soon afterwards a permanent rink building was erected. In

Pioneers In Modern Automobile Construction; Wonderful Records
Seturdaf evening there wai a
large attendance at the Kootenny
Garage tu see and listen tu the demonstration and lecture on the modern trend* of automobile, which was
given by uxperts from the Chev-
rolet .Motor Company of Canada.
The talk was most interesting and
instructive, and doubtless will result
in material profit to tha company
whoa* enterprise in putting on such
a demonstration iH to be commended.
Through this lecture nnd demonstration, a much wider knowledge of
motor uar construction, particularly
of the Chevrolet type, will result.
The lecturer, Mr. Gordon S. Henry,
is lo be congratulated on the able
manner in which he delivered his
talk on the car construction, showing
not only i*. thorough familiarity with
same in every way, but also much
ability as a speaker.
Chevrolet Hiitarv
In introducing himself and subject, Mr. Henry declared that it was
with a great deal of pleasure that
he introduced to every motorist the
most beautiful models in Chevrolet history. He reviewed briefly the
history of the Chevrolet since its introduction at the Canadian National
Exhibition in 1916, calling to
mind the fact, that the showing of
the product at that time made a considerable stir throughout business
circles. There was "something about
this product which seemed to foretell
success. It might have been because
this product, for the first time in connection with low prices on cars, took
into consideration most of the essentials and points of interest in the
standpoint of the purchaser." The
speaker mentioned three—appearance, power and convenience.
During the rest of the speaker's
fiddruBs ks confined himself principally to showing where the Chevrolet
Company had at all times striven to
maintain their superiority nn these
particular points. While in HI If) the
Chevrolet Motor Company were the
introducers of the stream line construction, today they are still the
leaders in  car beauty.
Improvements Made
With regard to power, the wonderful Chevrolet plant of 1R15 soon became famous, and the ropuNition
gained at that time hns never been
lost. With regard to convenience,
the Chevrolet, while in thc lower
price enr class, produced for the first
time the three speed selective transmission, foot accelerator, the electric

being bucked hy a powerful and permanent organization with abundant

Tho speaker went into detail with
Cooling    Syitem
In reference to the cooling system,
he pointed out the large capacity of
the Chevrolet radiator and water
jackets, the two blade fan and the
positive acting water pump, producing an even temperature and resulting in economical operation. The
proof of ita efficiency coul,] be gained from the fact that the difference
in temperature between the front
and rear of the motor was but 8V4 |
The speaker mentioned that the
Chevrolet Motor Corapany had built
over two million motors, and their
nbility to fnrniih an abundance of
power had been definitely proved.

car should be judged. In connection with the superiority of workmanship and material which entered into
the manufacturing of the Chevrolet
car, the speaker drew attention to

Few people realize 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 nn independent income fail to do so by thinking that the little they could same 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 ns the larger savings of the professional or business man.
The smaller a man's income, the greater his need for provision
for the future, and the greater his care should be in the selection of
his investments. Under our Partial Payment Plan for buying Investment Securities, if he can .save ten or fifteen dollars a month,
he cun create au independent income.
Business and professional men and women will find in this plan
the method of putting their savings to work to lhe best advantage.
HOW fast money will grow when well invested can be seen from
the following, showing what, can be done by Baving ?25 per month
for thirty years:
1. If hoarded, as done when sound Investments did not exist
for th eaverage person, it would amount to $9,000,
2, If placed in a bank al ,'>'. per annum compounded half-
yearly, without withdrawing the interest, it would amount to
$14,5(10, giving an annual Income of $480.80, or $8.40 por
,'i.     If invested under our Part ini I'n ynu ut plan it would nmounl

Government,   Municipal, and Industrial ncuritics, -giving an
annual income of $1,584 and a weekly income of over  $31)
a week.
Estimated results attained under our Partial  Pnynicn Plan are
based ou the assumption lhat the savings and Investments will cam
0'/( compounded half-yearly.
Under this plan of saving, your money is just as accessible as in
a bank with the added feature of greater interest returns.

At a recent meeting of tho Cran-;
brook Ministerial Association, favorable comment was passed on the admirable Christmas posters published,
by the Toronto Poster Association,
and distributed by the Kootenay Poster Service. These posters exhibit
in a most artistic manner the spirit.
of the Christmas season. Last year's
picture, showing the worship of tbe
Magi, was much admired. As long as
advertising shows this spirit of unselfish service, no one can say it is
entirely commercial. The thanks of
the community is due to tbe Kootenay Poster Service, and to Mr. James

That the subject of the amendment

That nothing iu the nature of an

Coleman Takes Fait Hockey
Game From Local Girls
(Continued from Page One)
equal of any tenm that may be entered for the Banff championship.
The Coleman team were accompanied
by their manager, "Mickey" Brennan,
and a chaperone. The time-keeper
was A, E. Leigh.
One In Firat Period
With W, J, Barber as referee the
game started promptly at 8 o'clock.
The Coleman forwards started away
with a rush and it was not long before
.Miss Drummond was called upon to
make a creditable save. After a re
turn to the Coleman nets, Miss Put
Fraser, after a good run essayed a
nice shot which Cranbrook's goalkeeper again successfully cleared,
After about three minutes' play Miss
Muir sent a shot from nbout centre
ice which fooled Miss Drummond-
one of the kind that even the most
experienced goal tenders are some
times fooled by. On a nice eombina
tion play by Dot Johnson and Miss
Muir, the ('ranbrook goal was again
challenged, the shot, however, going
wide. From a face-off at about the
blue line, Miss Frazer again sent a
hot one at the nets which was nicely
handled by Miss Drummond. M:
Muir carried the puck all the way
down the ice, and, drawing out the
defence, had a nice chance to score,
but missed the mark by a few inches.
A nice combination play by Miss Frazer and Miss Muir wus stopped by
Miss Burton. At this stage Cranbrook took a hand in the game, Miss
Burton taking the puck from about
centre ice. She got through for a
nice shot which was effectively blocked by Miss McDonald, in goal for
Coleman. Miss Drummond was next
called upon to save her net on shots
from Miss Bell and Miss Muir, but
Mrs. Hayden relieved the situation
with a nice get-away. I, Slye worked the boards to good udvuntuge,
scrapping it out with her opposing
wing, currying the puck to centre
ice. Miss Drummond wns next called upon to stop what looked like u
sure goul from thc stick of Dot.
Johnson, who had worked her wny
down the entire length of the rink,
assisted by a pass from Miss Fraser.
The first period ended in 1-0, favor
of Coleman,
Two  More   for  Coleman
The second period started with the
apparent determination on Cranbrook's pnrt to even up mutters. Miss
Slye und Miss A. Moir combined in
some nice work, which, however, was
frustrated by the defence. On the
return to Cranbrook's nets the puck
wns again carried well in Coleman
territory. Miss Fraser, the brilliant
skater of the Coleman team, secured
the puck, rushed through, nnd meeting with no opposition, had n pretty
chunce, Miss Drummond, however,
came out to meet the situation and
mude n nice stop, The same young
lady repeated the performance a
minute Inter, this time slipping within a few yards of the net, Miss Drummond again having to leave her nets
to get the puck out of danger from
an oncoming Coleman girl. Miss
Burton, after a solo run, again shot
on goal. About five minutes after
the start of the second period, Miss
Fraser, Miss Muir and MIbb Bell worked a nice combination, Miss Bell securing the count, being the second
for Coleman. On a Fraser-Muir
combination, Miss Drummond wns
again culled upon to save. Miss
Greaves relieved with a nice run up
the ice whieh was returned by combination between Miss Fraser and
Miss Muir, the latter securing a goul.
Miss Muir essayed a rush which was
stopped by Miss Fraser. Miss Greaves
got in some nice work, passing to
Miss Burton. Miss A. Moir took a
hund in the game at this point, but
was stopped by the defence, who in
return carried the puck to Cranbrook
territory, again calling on Miss Drummond to save. Miss Slye successfully broke up what looked to be another rush of thc Muir-Bell combination. Miss Johnson, of Colman, after a long rush, shot wide. Mrs,
Hayden, relieving, passed to Miss

unfortunutely over*skated the puck,

Miss Drummond to show her mettle.
Miss Chalmers relieved with a nice
shot nt goul, but was a little wide.
Miss Burton, after saving a rush by
Miss Muir, relieved the situation with
a short rush up the ice. After a
flashy rush, Miss Fraser put one
doad-on which was turned nicely aside
by Crnnbrook's busy goalie. This
ended the second period with a score
of 3-0 in Coleman's favor.

With the icon in their favor, Cole-
man settled down to a moro or less
defensive game, Crnnbrook endeavoring to rush mutters, Miss Greaves
got in some nice work for the defence, Miss Slye und Mrs. Hayden
got the puck well into Coleman territory. Miss Muir and Miss Belt
combined in u pretty play but failed
to score. Miss E. Moir was frustrated in u try for goal by Dot Johnson,
a scrimmage occurring in the goal.
Miss Muir attempted a rush on goal
but was checked by Miss Greaves,
Miss Muir taking n bud tumble, but

Toronto, Ontario.—Final estimates
for the Dominion wool clip put it at
11,600,000 pounds. Five million
pounds were used locally; the bulk
of the clip in Quebec and certain new
Canadian settlements in the west never reaching commercial channels. Of
the remainder, about 50 per cent, or
3,804,000 pounds, was marketed on
n graded basis through the medium
of the Canadian Co-Operative Wool
Growers. This compares with the
1925 figure of 3,278,000 pounds.

Another big land reclamation project looms in sight for the fertile
Kootenay Flats area adjacent to
Creston.   It has just become known
In the estate   of   ERIC   HERBERT
McPHEE, authorized assignor of
Cranbrook, in the   Province   of
British  Columbia.
NOTICE is hereby given that Eric
Herbert McPhee, trading under the

to close a deal for the purchase of '   ,__,    *
„ ___ .        , .    .,      tj n     did on the   14th   day   of   January,
8,000 acres embraced in the old Re-'
clamation Farm, on the west side of
Kootenay River, and extending south'
to the Idaho boundary, and have the
deal so well along that these snme
interests are now reported to be corresponding with the Ottawa authorities with a view to purchasing all
the Indian lands on the same side of
the Kootenay River.
The old Reclamation Farm is the
pioneer dyking proposition of the
Kootenay Valley, being started in
1893, and when almost completed
part of the work was washed out by
the unprecendented high water in thc
spring of 1804. The collapse of the
dykes at that time is said to be lurge
ly due to the fact that the engineers
did not leave a wide enough channel
at the point on the river where it
makes quite a sharp curve just as it
crosses the boundary—particularly
for the unusually high waters encountered that spring. With the exception of the washed-out portion the
rest of the dyke is in splendid shape.
In the S3 years that have elapsed
the dykes have grown up with willows
and settled down so as now to be
unbreakable. Another six feet in
height would have to be added to take
care of the added rise thc river will
have when all the land in the valley
is dyked—about half of which is already in that shape. If the project
goes through It would mean a total
dyked area of almost 10,000 acres,
and would adjoin at the south end an
almost equally large tract that is
already dyked. At present the
Reclamation Farm is owned by the
Alexanders, a wealthy British syndicate, and is leased by the Klock-
manns, who have land interests adjoining It at Porthill, Idaho, and who
use it for grazing and haymaking.

Reil   River   Expedition
Mention already has been made of
Sir Garnet Wolseley, who had distinguished himself in Ashanti, Egypt
and elsewhere. He was sent to the
Red River with an ample military
force, whose endurance on the lon^
tiring journey lias already been described. The news reached Fort
Garry, and the murderer Kiel and his
colleague, Lupine, lost their bravado
und shivered for fear. With the
same secrecy of movement that the
commander of truups observed in hifi
sortie upon the forces of Arabi
Pasha, hi; was within rifle shot of
Fort Garry beforo anyone in the murderer's lair knew of his approach.
Riel and Lepine took instant flight
out of harm's wuy, and with lusty
British cheers and amid the thunder
uf a royal salute, the Union Jack wus
hoisted ubove the fort.
A Fooliih Barfstin
Hon. Adnm George Archibuld hav-
ing Iwen uppointed lo the governorship of the territory on the 2nd of
November, he assumed his official duties und functions. In the following
May, 1871, he heard with alarm that
a body of Fenians under tho leadership of one, O'Donoghue, who had
been un ally of Riel, threatened an
eruption. (This will be described
more fully in the story of the Fenian
invasion of Canada.) The governor
was alone, surrounded by difficulties
and unprovided with u defensive
force; and being cut off bv distance
from communication with the central
authorities, was thrown upon his own
resources. It was an hour of grave
peril, and to save the new province
from the consequence of a conquest
by such n filibuster ns O'Donoghue
and the band of ruffians in his following, Archibuld leagued himself with
the two murderers, Kiel and Lepine
(this has heen called Archibald's fool
act), who were still ot large, though
warrants were out for their apprehension, to resist the invaders.
Promptly these two persons rallied,
once again, the subsided Metis, whom
they placed at the disposal of Mr.
Archibald. The governor, it appears,
had little misgivings in entering into
this foul and revolting compact. Fie
reviewed the murderers' troops, accepted their services, promised Riel
and Lepine at leust temporary immunity from molestation for their
crime, shook hands with them, received a letter signed b- them, and
through his secretary addressed a
written reply after the retreat of the
brigand O'Donoghue, complimenting
them on the loyalty they had shown
and the assistance they may have rendered. Indeed, the governor was of
the impression that Kiel and his followers offered their services in a
spirit of genuine loyalty. "Though,"
said Lord Dufferin, in a despatch to
the Secretary of State, "Sir John
Macdonald appears to have misgivings on this head."
Bargain Is Disputed
The strongest point by the Lieut.-
Governor in justification of this
sickening alliance is made when he
said, "If I had driven the French
half-breeds into the hands of the
enemy, O'Uonoghue, they would have
been joined by all the population between the Af-sinihoine nnd the frontier, Fort Gurry would have passed
into thc bunds of an armed mob ond
the British settlers to the north of
the Assiniboine would have suffered
that it makes one shudder to contemplate."
At thi.s period an all pervading
sense of etiquette had tuken possession of Archbishop Tache, who maintained with u zenl worthy of a noble
cause, that by virtue of his commission from the Canadian government,
and his declaration of an amnesty,
Riel and Lepine had been placed beyond the molestation of the law. It
is not necessary to detail incidents
of this unseemly squabble between
the bishop and the ministers. The
question was submitted to the Imperial Government and. after much
correspondence between Lord Dufferin and the Coloninl Secretary, the
Intter left the subject in the hands
of the Governor-General Lepine had
been captured and lay in the Winnipeg jail under sentence of death, but
this Lord Dufferin commuted to two
yeurs' imprisonment and a permanent
forfeiture of civil rights.
Riel   Escapes
Kiel, whose punishment would have
been the same us Lepine'b, for the
time escaped the law—because the
law shut its eyes—but lh was seen
afterwards, paid the penalty of this
and a later crime on the fell scaffold.
We may think at thi.s time that
Governor Archibald's act was absurd-
ly ridiculous, but what may not a
man do in such a contingency. The
threatening prospect loomed before
his eyes; instead of afler serving his
time as governor of Manitoba, he
served more peaceable years as governor of Nova Scotia, his bones
would bleach beside tliose of the
murdered Scott in the muddy bottom of the historic Red River. Mention has already been made of his
harassing difficulties, and his endeavor by every peaceable means and
schemes to invite Bishop Tache's return, knowing that his presence
would do more to quell the disturbance than any other means at th>
disposal of the government. The
Bishop, as was known, was at this
time in Rome, attending a session of
the famous Ecumenical Council, und
the ministers considered the case urgent enough to invite the Bishop's
return and use his endeavors toward!
restoring peace.
But unfortunately for the ends of
justice the Bishop set out with tho
mistake of regarding himself a plenipotentiary with formal powers,
whereas his mission was exactly in
the characer of that of Colonel de
.Salabcry, Donald A. Smith and the
vicar-general, Bishop Tache was
chosen because it was too apparent
that some of the priests in bis diocese
sympathized largely with the rebels,
and that the insurgents, almost to a
man, were members of his flock. So,
as in the despatching of the three
emmissaries named, the Bishop wns
given a copy of the Proclamation,
and nlso some private letters for his
guidance. For example, Sir John
Macdonald wrote, "Should the question arise as to the consumption of
stores or goods belonging to the Hudson's Bay Company by the insurgents, you are authorized to Inform
lhe leaders that if the Company's
government is restored, not only will
there be a general amnesty granted,
but in case the compuny should'claim
payment for such stores, thut the
Canadian government will stand between the insurgents und all harm."

Cop^LtlWC, by Boyfc.ii,
There have been many articles written on the proper kind of hand with
which to take out partner's no-trump,
tecond hand having passed, but vtry
few have emphaslze-d the element of
distribution, They tell you the kind of
hand you must hold in hearts or ipa-da
to Justify tlu* take-out, but they neglect
to mention the rest of your cards. No
rule (:ir a take-out fs sound or complete
that doesn't take into aaount the distribution of the entire band. Suppose,
for example, your partner bids one no-
trump, second hand pus«rs, and you
hold one ot the following hands:
Hearts — A, 9,8,4,3, 2
Clubs —7, 2
Diamonds—10, 8, J
Spades — 9,4
Hearts ■ - none
Clubs—K, 10,9,4,3,2
Diamonds   -J, 10, 3,2
Spades — 0, 8, 4
Hearts— 10, 8, 3, 2

Diamonds   -I, 10,9, 4, 3, 2
Spades — 0, 8, 1, 5
Hearts — 8
Clubs —Q, J, 10,8,7,5,2
Diamonds — 10, 7, 2
Spades — 9, 3
Alt writers agree that the no-trump
should be overbid by two hearts, holding hand A, but very few advocate a
take-out with the remaining four hands.
Yet in aii of these four hands the dis
tribution should act as a warning. Noat
of the-m can help a no-trump bid aad
yet all have a chance to win tricks at
their suit bid. They may not go gaae
but they are point tsivera and very frequently game savers. With a singleton
or void suit, uke out your partner's
no-trump freely. With a six card suit,
major or minor, always take out partner's no-trump bid if the hand contains
a singleton or void suit. With a seven or
more card suit, always take out part
tier's no-trump bid, irrespective of the
remainder of the hand.
The test hand given in the precediag
article is of the type just analyzed. It is
as follows:
Answer to Problem No. 17
Hearts —8, 5
Clubt—A, K, 7,5

you bid with Y's hand.' Y should bid
two diamonds. The hand contains a
six card diamond suit and a singleton
spade. Y-Z ran make five diamonds but

Be on the look out for this type of hand

hockey match that evening, Harry

Mr. Rader reports that his daughte.,

The Wardner hnckey team motored
to Wycliffe on Wednesday evening,
in response to a challenge from the
Wycliffe team for a match after the
local victory over Waldo, last Sunday. Although at the close of the
gume Wycliffe held the long end of
the score, li-,'i, the home teum put up
a splendid exhibition of hockey.
Playin.r in unaccustomed surroundings, under electric lights, prevented
the hoys from playing their usual
brand of hockey, the lights proving
the greater difficulty, since no member of the team has heretofore played
during the evening. According to
spectators, the match was one of the
best witnessed, with no rough or foul
ivs on either side. The Wvcliffe
n played a splendid game and ful-
earned their victory. Probably
had the teams had another period to
go, the score might have been reversed, as in the last period tho local
team seems able to follow the puck
much more easily, making some fine
•hots, and also doing good work in
tho defence. Sammy Thompson, in
goal, was struck on the head bv the
puck during the third period, but fortunately the blow did not prove disastrous, although Sammy's world reeled for several minutes. Sammy managed to stick to his job for the balance of the gnme, giving his usual
exhibition of fine, steady playing,
blocking some hard shots for his opponents. The line-up for the game
was: Sam Thompson, goal; Gillis
(Capt.) and H. Moore, defence; Rollie Thompson and Frank Moore, forwards; Andy Powell, centre; subs..
Elmer Thompson and Jack Moore.
Timekeepers were: Frank Thompson,
Wardner; Bert Johnson, Wycliffe.

The junior hockey game between
Waldo and Wardner, scheduled to
take place on Sunday afternoon,
proved a big disappointment in many
ways, Upon learning that the Wnldo
players wi re due here shortly after
three o'clock, the local junior team
and fl large number • •f spectators
turned o il nl the skating rink for the
game, only to find after a long.
dreary waft of about two hours that.
although the Waldo '.earn had started
iheir journey, they had not arrived
here. Finally the boys chose two
sides nnd played a couple of periods
of good hockey, after which, the Waldo team still not having arrived, the
team and spectators wendi d their
way home fur dinner. About five-
thirty, the manager of the local jun-
lor team wa- informed that the Waldo boys were here. Next issued a
frantic appeal for the- rest of the
home team to pot out on the ice.
This, however, proved impossible, the
majority of the team failing to be
located. Since the Waldo boys were
here, however, it seemed unfair to
.end them home gameless, so *.he
boys made up a scratch team, and in
the semi-darkness played two fifteen-
minute periods, before being obliged
to ijuit, the final tally reading 4-0 in
favor of Waldo. The reason for the
lnte appearance of the latter team
was attributed to car trouble, the first
ear breaking down a mile or so out,
while the boys had to walk back to
Waldo to secure another car to matte
the journey.  If the cold weather con
tinues and the Ice is in good condition, the Waldo boys plan on again
coming to Wurdner for a regular
match, on Sunday afternoon of this

New Building Is Opened
(Continued from Page One)
building, tho speaker .said tliat it was
indeed fortunate that the human
mind was more inclined to forget
the unpleasant and remember the
pleasant circumstances. With this
fact in mind, he could see that thc
building would, in the yenrs to come,
justify its erection, providing as it
would a suitable place where the men
could meet, recount and relate many
incidents of the Great War.
He tendered his congratulations to
the Cranbruok braticb of the Canadian Legion on their enterprise, as
shown by the splendid building in
which ho took pleasure iu declaring
Hearty applause greeted the conclusion of his remarks.
Mayor   Also   Speaks
On being asked by chairman Young
to speak, His Worship Mayor Roberts, intimating that his speech would
be brief, struck a happy chord when
he stnted he felt his position was
more in the capacity of a nurse whose
duty was to watch the doctor perform
the operation. He thanked them for
the opportunity given him of congratulating them on the hnndsome
building which they had erected,
which doubtless would prove a great
asset to the city. In offering a suggestion with regard to tlie future
operation of the club, the mayor
thought that to obtain good speakers
to address them from time to time
would serve a useful purpose. As a
sample of what they might be able
to get, he referred to an address
which he had heard given recently
by Rev. Bryce Wnllnce on the League
of Nations. In regard to the assistance referred to which the city had
given, the speaker claimed it was a
pleasure and a privilege to have had
some hand in the erection of a building through which future Canadians
would be reminded of the past.
Following this address, little Miss
Phyllis Wilson, the attractive little
flower maid, carried the beautiful
floral bouquets to Mrs. F. W. Green
and Mrs. T. Roberts, which, as wos
explained by Mr. Young, were tokens
of appreciation from the ladies' committee for the service rendered by
them in presiding during the afternoon.
The singing of the National Anthem brought to a close what was
designated as the official opening,
following which a very pleasing musical program was given, during which
time the guests were shown around
the building or served with afternoon tea.
