Australian Band Coming
It being apparent that the band
concert to be given by the Australian
band would be a strong drawing card
to the day's celebration, and that the
Jubilee Celebration would augment
the attendance at the band concert,
it was felt that an effort should be
made to induce the Rotary Club to
co-operate with the committee to tho
extent of having a band concert put
on as a portion of the Jubilee Celebration and the following resolution
was adopted:
"That the secretary write the directors of the Rotary Club asking if
they would co-operate with the com-
mittee to the extent of donating as
much of the proceeds of the band
concert as possible towards defraying
the expenses of the Celebration"

Majority   Very   Decisive,
Though Vote Is a
Light  One
Cranbrook ratepayers on Wednesday indicated very decisively that
they do not wish to incur the expense
of either a new building for a high
school, nor yet an addition to the
present building, opinion being apparently either that such a course is
not necessary, or that there must be
some other solution to the vexed
question of accommodation at the
high school, which has been exercising the minds of the trustees and the
By-Law No. 282
The proposal for a new $05,000
ten-roomed building, of whieh the
ratepayers would have provided $70,-
000, was defeated most decidedly, the
figures being:
For       34
Against   157
Adverse majority   123
Spoiled Ballots     20
By-Law No. 283
By-Law No. 283, for an addition
of five rooms, costing $45,000, und
the ratepayeis about $30,000, fared
but little better, the figures being:
For        74
Against   130
Adverse majority     50
Spoiled  Ballots       15
The voting was not heavy on the
question, about 2111 recording their
votes, out of an available four hundred who are entitled to vote on
money by-laws. ln any case the
measures to pass should huve hud s
sixty per cent,  majority.
Till the school hoard has met to
officially receive the result of the
vote, it is impossible to indicate whut
course may he followed in meeting
the situation. The anticipation is
that it will be necessary to establish
another class in the high school next
year, for which there is no possible
room in the present high school building. - Various courses may he followed, among them being to refuse
admission to the high school students
from out-of-town schools, to drop the
Grade XII course, or to find some
ii mporary accommodation for one
or two  classes.    Provision   is   air"

this would be attempted.
From the temper of the ratepayers
in the pust two weeks or so. it bo-
came apparent thnt neither of the
by-laws, if they passed, would get a
very big majority, hut few people
were prepared to state their opinion
that the measures would bi
down so heavily,

Complimentary Dinner
and Presentation
To bid farewell to Mr. nnd Mrs.
Angus Hay a large number of their
friends resident in Knst Kootenay
gathered together in thc K. P. Hall
on Wednesday evening, when a complimentary dinner and dance was
tendered them.
The affair was under the joint aus.
pices of the Windermere Stock
Breeders' Association, the Kast Kootenay Stock Breeders' Association,
the various Farmers' Institutes of
Kast Kootenay and the Cranbrook
District  Agricultural   Association.
At 7 p.m. the company sat down

Many Well  Wishers
Following the dinner,  Mr. T.  It
Flett, president of the Cranbrook Dis.
trict  Agricultural   Association,  took!
the chair, und nfter a few words of
explanation with respect to the purpose of the meeting, referred in very
complimentary terms to the guests of
the evening, Mr. and Mrs. Hay.
Mayor Roberts, representing the
city, added his tribute to what the
chairman had said, expressing the
thought that while they regretted
very much the departure of these
citizens, it wus some compensation to
know that they were bettering themselves in going.
In conveying greetings and regret*
from the Institute ut Baynes Lake,
Mr. Morrow said that he felt that
Mr. Hay's example to young men in
agricultural affairs was something
hat mnde him invaluable to them.
'I» wns pleased to realize that he was
being rewarded with a promotion.
•Speaking for the members of the
'udging teams, Miss Margaret Mc-
Dlure gave a most appropriate address, in which she recounted the very
pleasant times which they had spent
in the judging classes and pig club.
Thi« regretted thnt plans for a trip to
the big fuir at Toronto this year
would be somewhat hampered by the
departure of Mr. Hay. They also
were more resigned to their fate
wheif they realized what the move
meant for their leader. Visions of
Mr. Hay as Minister of Agriculture
were among the good things they
hoped for him.
Mr. A. B. Smith, whose association
with Mr. Hay had been most intimate, referred to the matter of his
coming here, and showed how he had
mnde good—all their hopes had been
The speaker, in closing, jocularly
pointed out that while Mr. Hay had
contributed a whole lot. he wished

cement shortly, between Baker and
l.ouis Streets. Armstrong Avenue
property owners in the block affected nave already put in a petition to'
the city council, which will be considered on Thursday evening at the
regular meeting, a majority of the
assessment value being represented
on the petition.) and a good margin to
spare, it is understood.
An effort has been mnde to get
Norbury Avenue property owners lin.
d up in the same way, so thut a
similar petition can be presented, und
it is ex|H>cted that it will be successful.
The plan is to put in n strip of cemented roadway twenty-four feet
wide down the middle of the street,
laying the cement six inches deep.
This would leave two strips at the
edge of the road eleven feet wide,
for parking cars, etc. The cost was
estimated some time ago by a representative of the cement compuny at
about $4,000 for each block, but it

sum mny also be reduced if the cost

A committee of three, consisting of
Messrs. A. A. Robertson. W. R. Ross
ind H. W. Herchmer, was named to
go into thc matter of revising thc
constitution to make it adaptable to
"cal conditions.
To   Arrange   Convention Date
It was %-lso decided after general
discussion that a hcmittStinsj convention should be held within the next
thirty days, the date and place to
be decided on later. In the meantime. Dr. Tolmie.j provincial leader
of the party, will be communicated
with, and invited to attend a meet-
ine takine the form of a banquet,
it which time the nomination could
■tlso take place. When this has been
arranged, the executive will complete
further arrangements as to the convention.
During the evening addresses were
iriven on the general outlook bv Dr.
I. W. Rutledge. N, A. Wallinger, the
local member, and W. R. Ross. Dr.
Rutledge briefly reviewed the situation which was revealed after the
close of the last Dominion contest,
which he was a candidate, and
pointed to indications of widespread
npport which the vote showed. He
alao dealt with some of the recent
Issues before the people, and pleaded
for the closest co-operation possible
between the Conservatives of Kim-
berley and Cranbrook. and urged that
the new leader of the party be given
every possible support.
Mr. Wallinger referred to the recent charges which had been made
•he subject of judicial enquiries at
the coast, and emphasized the fact
thut ther'- seemed to be need for a
change in the policy of the province
in respect to the natural resources,
mining, lumbering, fisheries, etc.
Conservatives should stand firm for
economy and clean government. Mr.
Wallinger said, and should work for
the advancement of the province.
Kimberley   Growing
W. it. Roai drew attention to the
fact that the position of Kimberley
was rapidly becoming of more importance* in the district, and of the
growing interest being shown in pub.
lie affairs. While he stood for nothing but the- friendliest feeling between the two places, it was a fact
hat Kimberley began to feel itself
entitled to some of the governmental and other privileges that hove
hitherto centred in Cranbrook. He
moved a vote of confidence in the
leadership of Dr. Tolmie for the pro-
since, which was carried unanimously and with enthusiasm. A vote of
thank was accorded to the retiring
officers, and ^Ir. Dezall, the president
for thr- coming year, promised every
effort would be put forth for the
hest co-operation between thc two
Before tho meeting dispersed, a
pleasant social time was enjoyed, and
refreshments served.
The first ball game of the season
at Lumberton was played last weekend by Lumberton Scouts and the
boys of the Cranbrook Catholic
Church. The visitors took the field
and succeeded in holding the Scouts
to a single run in the first and one
in the second. Thereafter the Lumberton boys held them scoreless until
the sixth, during which time they not
only evened thc score, but went five
runs in the lead. The Cranbrook
boys made a sturdy and valiant attempt to retrieve their fallen fortunes, but with poor success. The
final score showed the local Scoutl
to be on the long end of a 12 to 0	
score. There were some errors on .the Catholic Church. It is under-

TW'o iiiurc gallant airmen, heroes of the French
cscadrillcs of the war days, gambling for the
honor of achievement in the world of aviation,
have lost, and whether they have paid for their gallantry with their lives remains to be seen. There
ua*-. not much bul thc honor nf having been the
first to fly from France to the l'nited States to be
gained from their achievement—there was a money
prize as well, but il was not large enough to begin
tn pay tin* cost of making such a flight—and others
had already flown over the Atlantic before. There
'would have In-™ tribute paid tn them for a few
days, liny would have been hailed as having inaugurated yri another chapter in man's conquest of the
aii and then the world would have proceeded to
forget them, just as most people have already for
gotten who the first aviators were to fly over 'he
So there was nothing in it but the honor of
the thing, and they staked their very lives for this
fickle thing. What is it makes men want to give-
all they have for the sense of a little further achievement? There is the eternal urge- to do a little more
than anyone else has before; to go somewhere not
hitherto trodden by men's feet; to explore realms
iu all spheres that have remained obscure. There
are heroes in all lines of scientific endeavor, many
of whom have labored faithfully for au ideal aud
received no recognition at all, far less any degree
of fame. Such is the way the world progresses,
each step forward being made easier by the sacrifices of those whose energies are devoted to a
cause, and who will back up their belief with their
FKOM what can be learned of the programs in
course of preparation for the two national holidays now in lhe offing—Empire Day and Dominion Day—it looks as if they should both result
in banner observances of the occasions. Empire
Dae, whicli has previously heen observed here with
more or less patriotic emphasis, is now to become
more of a day devoted to athletics of various kinds,
while ou Dominion Day, to mark adequately the diamond jubilee of Confederation, plenty of stress will
he put on the nature of the occasion, which is as it
should  be.
It remains for the weatherman to be a little
more kindly disposed than has been noticed in thc
past spring season, but there is plenty of time between now and then for conditions to reverse themselves, so that people would wish for the return of
what has been. While the Empire Day celebration
is undoubtedly under the best combination of auspices for the occasion, and is therefore as sure of
success as is reasonably possible, granted tbe proper
degree of public support is accorded to il, it is noteworthy that on the Dominion Day program there
is represented a breadth of ideas and organizations
that it is most likely has seldom, if ever, been
brought into action under a single committee iu the
history of the city. Such moves are to be coin-
mended, if onI\* for tbe immense amount of good
they can do in bringing into close contact witb each
other the many diversified organizations tbat seldom find a common ground in any other way.
though each one of them is pursuing a definite
course of useful accomplishment in the city.

V. M. C A. last Monday, it was de- J
ruled to usk the various Sunday j
Schools to uniu%-in n special service
on Sunday, May 22nd, when the Sunday School cup will (>e presented to
the Salvation Army school, the winner in the recent competition.
The schools will meet as usual in
their own  churches,  and   later  will
march    to    the    Star   Theatre,    assembling there at 12,46,     Rev. V. II.

service.    The  address and  presents- j
tlon will he given  by Rov.   M.   S.
Blackburn.    The  United  Church  or-1
chestrn will assist with the music, and
lantern slides of the hymns will he I
thrown on the screen. This service
is open to all who are interested in
the work of the Sunday Sehoolr.,.und
it is-hoped that a tarjic attendance
will be present. The whole service
is planned to be over at 1.15.
The Mother's Day survce was well
attended in the United Chureh, the
vestry ns well as the body of the
church being: filled with worshippers.
After a short message on the place
and power of motherhood, the minister called upon the Sunday school
to present the pageant. "The Coronation of Mother." This was exceedingly well carried out, Mrs. G. D. Car-
Ivle, Miss Knthleen Dezall, Miss Ednn
McPheej and Mr. G. T. Moir taking
the leading pnrts.    The pageant was
repeated later at the Sunday school.
Tho orchestra, assisted by Mr. V.
Fink, rendered several selections, and
assisted with the hymns. • At the
evening service Mrs. Stewart Macintosh acceptably rendered a beautiful
•r'onfi; of "Mother," the words of which
wore written by her mother, Mrs.
(Dr.) Wright, Amherst, N.S.
The annual conference of the United Church will be opened in Wesley
Church, Vancouver, on Wednesday,
May 18th, and will continue for a
week. The local representatives will
be Rev. Bryce Wullace and Mr. W. G.
Requests have already been made
that the open air services started last
summer, nt the close of the regular
Sunday evening services, be carried
on this year. If all the Protestant
bodies eo-operate in these meetings
they can be very inspiring and helpful. Large numbers of tourists are
expected hen.' this year. Last year
numbers of cars were parked around
the playgrounds, listening to the services — we can look for more this
year. Open air services are gaining
in popularity, and, was it not in the
open air the Master preached his
greatest sermons? So these services
are not innovations so much as a return to the "simplicity which is in
Christ." Only when the churches get
in earnest about the gospel can they
expect the people to be interested.

Mr. W. R. Grubbe, local manager
for the Imperial Hank of Canada, has
received information from the office
of the assistant general manager,
Winnipeg, In regard to a memorial
proposed to tho memory of the late
Major-Gunerol L. .1. Lipsott, C.B.,
C.M.G., of Winnipeg. This memorial
proposed will take the form of a
stained glass window to bo erected
in All Saints' Church Winnipeg.
General Lipsott was the original commander of the Eighth Batallion, CR.
1\, and later the general commanding
officer of the Second Canadian Infantry Brigade and the Third British Division. lie was killed in action two months before the declaration of the armistice, in September,
It is desired to get in touch as far
as possible with the men who served
under General Lipsett, in order to
give as many ns' possible an opportunity of contributing to the memorial fund, and to this end the co-operation of branches of the Canadian Legion is being sought, as it i.s felt that
many will welcome the opportunity
of contributing to the memorial for
this well known Canadian soldier.
Subscriptions of from $1.00 up to $30
will be thankfully received, it is
stated. Subscriptions should be sent
to Mr. F. L. Patton, honorary treasurer, the Lipsett Memorial Fund,
care of the Dominion Bank, Winnipeg, Man., by June 1st next.
T. R. Flett. Canadian Pacific Railway divisional superintendent, Cranbrook, with J. B. Robertson, divisional engineer, were at Creston on a
brief official inspection ou Saturday,
going in by speeder from Kootenay
Landing and Sirdar. A stop was
made at Wynndel, at which point the
pre-cooling plant of the Co-Operative
Fruit Growers' Association is coining
along. With it at work, Mr. Flett
expressed the opinion that all the
company dining cars west of Winnipeg, at least, may this season be
serving Creston Valley strawberries
and raspberries.
Now that the last of the 1920 fruit
crop has m'oved, figures available
show that the company had a highly
satisfactory year in that district, the
f:iiit crop accounting for a grand total of 305 cars of all varieties, and
about 15 cars of vegetables. In the
fruit line, there were 245 cars of
apples, four cars of crab-apples, three
■ars of sweet cherries and one of
sour, 25 cais of strawberries, 10 cars
of raspberries, one of blackberries.
The loganberry, gooseberry, black
and red currant shipments totaled
a carload, and there were seven carloads of plums and prunes and four
cars of pears.
According to Mr. Flett, the freight
movement east and west in the
Crow's Nest division is pretty much
on a par with last year, but the schedule has now been so arranged that
the yard crew at Sirdar-Kootenay
I nnding is able to get Sunday nights
oh* duty, .something that has been
.mposslble  in  the   past  four  years.
Inquiry as \o crop prospects convinces tin- superintendent that 1927
will see quite a gain over 1926, and
he was particularly happy to recall
the very fine comeback the Creston
district made in 1926 with fruit ship,
ments of 805 cars, as compared with
hardly more than 90 carloads of ev
cry description for the crop of 1925
—the falling off being due to the
severe winter of  1924-1925.
Further particulars received re
luting to the winning by Miss
Madeliene Woodman of the title of
"Miss Victoria" in the beauty contest being carried on to ultimately
determine who shall be chosen ns
"Miss Canada," at an international
competition nt Galveston shortly, reveal that she won a very sweeping
victory, finishing well ahead of all
other contestants. The final score
was 8,409 for Miss Woodman, and
1,514 for the next highest contestant.
The competition nt Vancouvor for the
choice of "Miss Canada" was to commence last Saturday.
In publishing n picture of Miss
Woodman, the Victoria Times says
thnt: "Besides valuable gifts, she has
won a seven weeks' contract to appear at thc theatres of the Capitol
circuit. She will go to Vancouver
to compete with the prize beauties
of all western Canada for a 'Miss
Canada' title to represent this coun
try at the international bathing
beauty contest at Galveston at the
end of this month, when the prize
beauties from twelve nations will
compete with forty-two from Canada
and the United States for the beauty
championship of the world."

University of British Columbia gave
a pleasing presentation of "The Romantic Young Lady," the Knglish
version    of   C.    Martinez    Sierra's
sprightly Spanish comedy. A capacity audience' greeted the players
in the University Theatre, at Point
Grey, and gave enthusiastic applause
to their efforts.
'Produced for the first time in
Canada, "Thc Romantic Young Lady"
proved to be a good example of modern European comedy. It abounds
in humorous situations and sparkling
lines, and is excellent in technique,  i
The ploy abounds hi amusing situations, and the costumes and seen-,
ery lend much color to the presentation. Those who have seen the University players on any of their other
visits will realize lhat "The Romantic
Young Lady" will afford a very entertaining evening in the theatre.',

much realism to the beauty of the1
Spanish night and to tho Bummer

The   Fenian   Invasion   of   1BGG
Great enthusiasm prevailed in the
Fenian circles. The slogan. "On to
Canada," was reechoed over nl) the
country. The formidable sum of two
hundred thousand dollars was collected to "crush" thc British Empire ami
make Canada a new Irish Republic,
Growth of the Movement
The ground was ripe for miBcllief,
and Fenian societies sprang up nil
through the frontier states, nominally
(or the purpose of "freeing" Ireland;
practically for the invasion uf Canada as heing the nearest and easiest
wny of hurting Great Britain. Headquarters were established at New
York in a palatial mansion, anil numerous depots of amis, ammunition
and military stores were placed along
the Canadian border. One hundred
thousand men were enlisted and drilled hy December, 1805. Arrangements were for a rising in Ireland
at the same time as tbe projected invasion of Canada. All these plans
and movements were public* property.
The nominal strength of the volunteers in British America was about
22,000, and since the Trent affair
of 1862 there had also been some
I 12,000 Imperial troops stationed
I throughout the country. On March
; 17th, 1868, ten thousand volunteers
j were called out to meet a threatened
invasion of the Canadian frontier.
Fourteen thousand responded, and
| General McDougall, in u subsequent
.report, declared that thirty thousand
j could as easilv be obtained. Nothing
I happened at the moment, except an
incipient raid on New Brunswick,
which was checked at an early stage
by the presence on the coast of Sundry of British men-of-war. After
some duty on the frontier as guards,
the Canadian volunteers wero allowed to return home. But a little later
the Fenian movement into Canada
really began, and on May 31st fourteen thousand men were ordered out
for actual service. In three days
20,000 men were under arms.    The

nuitnhly engraved medals given by
the Vancouver Fire Insurance Agents' Association for an essay on
Fire Prevention. This competition
was  announced   last  September.
The winning essay for this district
is given in full below;
A   Forest   Fire
Through a beautiful, wide, thickly-
tiinbered valley run n smooth, level
motor road. Thia road rim sometimes between aisles of magnificent
tall jack-pines, with glimpses from
time to time of a swirling river, and
now and again through little green
meadows. This river was at last
crossed by a bridge at a place called
the Crossing.
Ovor this road thousands of cars
travelled annually, bearing tourists
from all over Canada and the U.S.,
many coming back the next year to
again   view   the   wonderful   scenery.
Tbis tourist tra the increased the
trade in the towns, and brought quite
a revenue into the country.
As the valley was a Dominion park,
the varied wild animals had nothing
to fear of mankind, aud consequently became (julte tame. Deer, moose
and elk became very plentiful, as did
all wild animals. Beavers, which before the park was formed neared extinction, were again beginning to increase. To the animals the valley
became  a  veritable paradise.
Then one day In July of this year
tlte bad news wus reported that u
fire had broken out in the park just
north of the Crossing. A small crew
of firefighters was sent out, but tbe
fire had gained such headway that
it could not be gotten under control. More men and some pumps
were sent out, but to no avail. Still
more men were procured, until an
army of over a thousand were risking
their lives fighting that indomitable
enemy, fire. The combined etforts
of all these men aud some twenty
ipumps could not assuage the flames,
which were now fanned by a strong
wind, and it was not until over n
month later that a welcome rain put
out the fire; but not until it had destroyed the greatest part of the valuable timber. What was a month before n forest of waving green trees,
was now a barren desolate waste of
■and blackened by burned stubs and
fallen logs. The animals which had
not been burned to death were driven
by the flames to find new pastures.
About three dnys after the fire
started the tourists, alarmed by the
proximity of the fire, began to decrease. After about a week, they
had nearly stopped. Then a terrible
accident, in which three tourists were
burned to death by being trapped by
the flames, caused the road to be
closed altogeher. As a consequence,
gas stations, garages, stores, tea
rooms and bungalow camps lost all
their trade. The country for miles
around was smoked up so as to obscure all sunlight for nearly a month.
As all the scenery is spoiled in the
park, traffic will not be resumed in
its usual flow until a second growth
of trees bejrins to mature.
The fire-fighters' wages must have
amounted to thousands of dollars,
while the loss of timber was easily
half a million dollars. In all the fire
must have cost the government about
six hundred thousand dollars. This
destruction, risk and loss of lives,
driving out of animals, and expense
and loss of tourist trade was probably caused by a poorly extinguished
camp fire, a smouldering cigarette
stub, or other easily avoidable carelessness.

' Day, Boy Scouts' Day and the name
day of His Majesty tlie King. It is,
j however, safe to say that throughout
i the length and breadth of Britain
on April 23rd it was known only as
(the day of the cup-tie final. His
j Majesty together with 100,000 of his I

much as $500 was vainly offered for I

A sign of the times and one significant of the enormous change which
the war has effected in public opinion in Great Britain, is the general.
feeling of inevitability with which ]
the momentous government measure
to give equality of voting power to
men nnd women has been received.
It does not seem to be generally recognized that tho effect of the Bill
will be to add between four and five
million women voters to the number
on the register, and according to a
cautious estimate this will give a total
female vote of 13,592,922 against
12,697,799 males. In other words,
for the first time in the world's history, and under a constitutional gov.
eminent, women will be placed in a
voting majority. The government
measure1 is expected to pass into law
before 'the next general election,
which would seem to indicate the
fnith of the government in the well-
known conservative character of thc
average woman. On the other hand,
being a woman, she is just as likely
to vote Labor.

Great Britain lias, as a rule, little
to boast about the matter of weather,
but during the past fortnight alt records have been broken for sunshine,
if not for temperature. On Kasler
Monday two places in the British
Isles recorded practically 100 per
cent, of a possible duration of sunshine, both Knstbournc and Jersey
reporting 13.3 hours. Other out -
standing records nre 77 hours of sunshine at Bognor in 7 consecutive days,
and 69 hours at Worthing in 6 consecutive days. Britain's brightest
April on record wns in 1912, when
Dover registered 277 sunny hours
nnd Portsmouth nnd Folkestone 270.

laying of the black mantle has aroused the muse in Pat Devlin, one of
Penticton's Irish poets, who with
Sam Clarke of thc lake city is a contender for the job of Poet Laurettc
of Canada.   Pat's effusion runs thus:
There's tarvia on the street.
There's tarvia on the. stair.
It's got on grandpop's whiskers—
Ye gods, it's everywhere.
It clingetb, ah, so lovingly,
It floats up  in the air.
It drives thc kitchen maid
To the very realm of despair.
It sticketh to our carpet;
To brother's baseball bat;
It's on sister's pianoforte;
She cannot get "E" flat.
The beauty chorus girl,
She has it on her knee;
It's on  the dog and on the cat—
It even stays on me.
Ah, but when it dries,
Then tarvio's joy you feel;
Whether on bike or car,
Or do the toe and heel.

So fnr as the welfare of Liberal
and Conservative parties in British
Columbia is concerned, the North
Okanagan by-election campaign,
which has now opened, promises
to be the most important in provincial political history since the Cranbrook by-election which won this seat
for the Conservatives in 1923.
At last week's convention in Armstrong the Liberals selected Dr. K. C.
MacDonald, former member for the
riding, and for a brief time provincial
secretary in the Oliver cabinet. He
was elected for North Okanagan in
1916, 1920 and 1924, but was defeated at a by-election in the fall
of 1924.
Conservatives of North Okanagan
have already numed W. F. Kennedy
as their standard-bearer. Both he
and Dr. MacDonald are residents of
Vernon, the leading town in the tiding. A warm fight is In prospect.
The by-election will incidentally be
the fourth since the 1924 general
Following his defeat in Victoria,
Premier Oliver was offered the Nelson scat, held by Kenneth Campbell.
He carried it with a good majority.
Dr. MacDonald was defeated in the
second by-election. The third was
occasioned by the death of John Mac-
Kie, Conservative member for Grand
Forks-Greenwood, who was killed by
a dynamite explosion in a Kettle Valley railway train. Dugal MePherson
regained the seat for the Liberals,
After the death of Mr. Cochrane
last fall the government found itself
for the first time in three sessions of
the legislature with a majority of one
over all, counting Mr. Speaker Buck-
ham's deciding vote. If the Conservatives win in North Okanagan the
count in the House would be 23 Liberals (and Mr. Speuker—whose vote
could not be cast) and 24 of all
others. Therefore, ut the next session there would be the possibility of
an adverse vote. ,
Should Dr. McDonald win it would
mean the recapturing of two Conservative seats by the Liberals.
If Mr. Kennedy is successful the
by-election count will be two victories for each party since 1924.
Keen interest is being shown in
thc campaign and for the next two
months North Okanagan will hold the
spotlight on the political stage, though
Premier Oliver has not yet confirmed
the date of the contest which will
have to tuke pluce in June unless
the government calls a general election in the meantime.

mobile industry was in its infancy in
the province, the object of such organizations being more or less of a
social nature. In li'2:i, the club
numbered u few members only, but
at the present time it has N000 names
on its membership poster. In its
early stages, the club issued no road
map's, nor could it be snid that it had
any proper office from wliich to eon-
duet its affairs.
The elub, sensing the necessity for
consolidation, interviewed the attorney-general of the province who
advised amalgamation of the various
clubs into a body of international
scope, distribution of road maps and
descriptive literature, marking of
highways, etc.
Amalgamation effected, tho club
began to interest itself in betterment
of road conditions throughout the
province, passage o f necessary
amendments to existing traffic laws,
preservation of forests, und adequate
guidance of visiting tpurists.
The club entered the year 1027
with a chain of information bur
caus extending across the province
branches having been established at
all the more Important centres in the
interior. Each branch office operating this year will bc in charge of a
paid secretary, previously trained to
the work at tlie expense of the elub.
As nearly as possible these branch offices will be furnished with all thu
equipment and data which is to be
found in club headquarters in Vancouver.
Mr. PUkins informed the meeting
that the object of his visit to Cranbrook wns the establishment of an office at this point. lie had already
negotiated for office furnishing, he
suid, and came armed with a complete
set of books especially designed for
tourist information work. Mr. Elkins emphasized the necessity for get-
ting speedy and accurate information
on road conditions, mileages, garages,
hotels, road and city tourist camps,
customs regulations, road regulation

road maps, covering practically the
entire territory of the northwest, including the western states, weekly
rood bulletins, immigration regulations, shooting and fishing. The of
, fiee  will carry illustrated  brochures
■ of various sections of the country
! which, together with road maps, wlu
I he issued free of charge to tourists.
}     Arrangements   were   made    while
Mr. Elkins was in the city for the
' opening of the bureau in new quarters, probably on Baker Street:
t and as at present proposed the bureau
; will occupy the front part of thc
; office ami the board of trade the

73-Year-Old  Singer  Proves
Among Oldest on
Results just announced of thc continent-wide search for the 100 oldest
sewing machines in Canada and the
United States reveals that in this
day, when a two-year-old automobile
is considered "old," thousands of
women me still sewing on machines
that tlieir mothers and even grandmothers used nearly three-quarters of
a century ago.
The first successful sewing machine was put on thc market in 1851,
and the search for the oldest ma-
"hines still in use, which was conducted by the Singer Sewing Machine
Company in observance of its seventy fifth anniversary, brought to light
100 machines from 68 to 74 years
ild. Most of these were still in everyday service.
During lhe search, which was carried into every pnrt of Canada, letters were received from 153,040 own-
eis entering machines in the contest.
More than 100,000 of these were at
least 40 years old, but the winning
machines were all manufactured before the beginning of the American
Civil War.
Letters from the winners included
stories of pioneer women who carried their machines across the plains
and the Rocky Mountains, when they
went to make new homes—one even
went around Cape Horn; stories of
women who found a way to make a
living for their children through this
invention, which came closer to their
lives than had nny before in history,
and simple stories of family life.
Included among the Canadian winners of new model electric machines
were Mrs. P. W. Willis, Cranbrook,
H.C, who entered a Singer 73 years
old; J. T. McQueen, New Glasgow,
N.S., and Mrs. Fred Joyce, Toronto,
Ont.,  whose  Singer  machines  have
each given 08 years of service.
And so the records run of this first
lnbor-saving device to be introduced
into thc home, the invention which
effected a new epoch in the lives of
women. Today, it is difficult to find
a home that is not equipped with
some kind of sewing machine. It Is
estimated that there are at present
more than twenty-three million sewing machines in family use.
As announced in the Herald recently, Mrs. Willis hns received her
new machine in exchange for the
73-year-old Singer she entered, and
which will most likely be taken by
the company for exhibition purposes.

brighter skies did delegates assemble
to a Conservative nominating convention than those which prevailed yesterday, when fifty-two delegates from
Columbia riding met at Golden to

nnd to express their unanimity in selection of a candidate, who as forecasted,, was Earle J. Scovil, broker,
of Golden. No other name was mentioned at any time during the gathering. To scan the faces of those present and to hear other names recalled during the meeting was interesting, amongst these being Henry Parson, of Golden, who for many years
wbb local member, and James Stewart Johnston, provincial party candidate in the lnst provincial election.
All local polling divisions were represented, including 10 delegates from
the Windermere. Splendid speeches
were delivered by R. H. Pooley and
Mr. Scovil. A central association
was formed for the riding, with T.
