view of tho activities uf tlu- club fnr
tht- past yoar, among othor things
mentioning thr fnrt that ut tho beginning of tho year tht-' sum of $1,-
fi()0 had boon the objective, ami tlmt
he wns pleasod to know that tliey had
reached it, less $<;<).Ul). This and the
success of the operations nt the
hatchery, he considered would be a
source of satisfaction to the meeting, ns it was to himself, nttributing
the credit for this success to the
collecting ability of Secretary Steward and to the efficient management
of the hatchery officials, Mr. Ryder
and Mr. Whiting.
Year's   AccomplUhmenta
During the season fifteen executive meetings were held. One organization meeting was held in Kimberley, at which Kimberley agreed to
remain part of the C.D.R. & G. Club.
He referred to the matter of the
pollution of Moyie Lake, in regard to
which he said the government had
given them every assurance that nothing was being emptied into the
lake that would be at all injurious
to the fish.
The president thanked the members of the executive for their attendance and co-operation, also thc
secretary and hatchery officials,
through whose untiring efforts such
splendid results had been attained.
He bespoke for the incoming president the same hearty co-operation
which had been given him.
Following these remarks, secretnry
Steward read the minutes of the last
annual meeting, which were adopted
as read.
A letter from the Fisheries De.
partnent intimated that the department would be unable to send this
year tho eastern brook trout as formerly.
A letter from the B.C. Fish and
Game Protective Association indi
cated their approval of the recom
mendation of the suggestion of the
Cranbrook Club wilh respect to the
fishing licences, which advocated a
reduction to $1.00 for resident, $o.00
for non-residents and $10 for licenses.
It was still the concensus of opinion
of the meeting that the reductions
should come into effect.

Burns'Night Marked By Well
Arranged and Successful
OF B. C. R. M. A.
To stage a concert, a dance or a
supper at any time is no small undertaking, but to sponsor three together in one evening successfully
is the proud record of the Cranbrook
Cnli'iidonian Society, who on Tuesday
last, the anniversary of the birth of
Scotland's honored bard, Bobbie
Bums, held the triple event at the
Auditorium, In the opinion of many
it was the most successful function
of its kind ever held, much credit!
being due the energetic committee
responsible for the undcrtnking.
For the occasion the large hall wus
appropriately decorated with the colors of Burns, decorating the large
arch over which was the name "The
Calodonlan Society." Mr. Alan Graham, who was chairman for the evening, opened the program with a
few remarks suitable to th© occasion.

formerly having acted as his assistant,
A recommendation is to be mado
to the annual meeting re the dividing of the whole i,!' the province
of B.C. into districts, number one
I comprising that portion of B.C. east
| of Kootenay Landing tu thc Alberta
boundary, together wiih ail territory
north and south.
Working plans for these districts
will be carried out by a special field
man. It was also decided that the
annual meeting of the association be
heltl  sometime  in   the   week   of  May
beginning Monday, the 10th.
and considering the fact that they
are but newly formed, and interference through sickness with the practices, their numbers were extremely
well done, reflecting much credit on
themselves and their leader, Mrs. J.
Coutts, who has trained them, and
who conducted during the evening.
Mr. Vincent Fink, accompanied by
Miss A. Sarvis, gave an excellent selection entitled "Old Refrain," by |

"John Anderson, My Jo," by the
choir,  was  pleasingly  rendered.
Miss Edna McPhee added much
lustre to her already bright record
as a young stage artist through her
recitations. In her first selection,
"Burn's Birthday Song," the young
Miss, dressed in a Highland costume,
gave her selection with an ennuncia-
tion which was perfect, and with an
emphasis which would have done
credit to a person many times her
age. She is truly an artist, and was
forced to respond with "Jessie's Supper," which won for her added admiration.
Addr«i» oa Buraa
Rev. Bryce Wallace gave the
speech of the evening on Burns', and
was listened to attentively, his remarks being much appreciated by
After referring to the honor which
was his in being asked to give a toast
to the immortal memory of Robt.
Burns, he pointed out the fine tribute
which the gathering there, as well as
those taking place in all parts of the:
world, was to the lad who was born
in Kyle. The speaker referred to the
young poet, who died prematurely
from worry and indulgence, and the
esteem in which he was held by the
world's greatest writers, who paid
tribute to his genius ns a lyric poet.
ln endeavoring to explain the hold
tliat Burns held over humanity, he
pointed to such gatherings all over
the world, similar to the one held
that night. The speaker said that it
was not as a literary geniiiB, in which
case others should receive greater
recognition, but on account of the intimacy that existed between Burns
and the people of his time. He was
one of them, pulsing their liven in
many ways, they in turn knowing
him with all his peculiarities.
The high regard for the ploughman
poet and his works continues to exist
since it speaks the Innguagc of the
common people and hands down the
best of Scottish traditions.
Mr. Wallace then gave a most interesting sketch uf thc poet's life,
and showed conclusively that the humor and wit which permeated his
works went to disprove the concept
tion that the Scotch lacked humor,
He appealed for the singing of more
of the old Scotch songs, both in the
home nnd schools. Much in evidence,
he claimed, in Burns' life and writ

program in the afternoon.
Those who look over the new building for the first time on Saturday will j
be struck with the comfortable furn-
ishings and the general "homey" atmosphere of the place. "A home
for the returned man away from
home" has been the slogan of the Le- *
gion, and this seems to have been ad-'
mirably carried out in thc new quar-1
The building stands on four lots,
giving a frontage of a hundred feet,j mmi\. at g ,M11.
and is itself thirty feet wide by sixty May ge|j power
feet long. In the spring it is hoped
to improve the grounds, und put in I
grass for lawn bowling, etc., which:
will certainly add to the appearance;
of that end of Baker Street.
The wide verandah opens into n
spacious room, the full width of the
building which has been fitted up
for a rtading room. Very comfortable chairs are provided, and there
is a fireplace, hardwood floor, and almost every adjunct that could be
wished for to make a comfortable'
reading room. To bring the place
right up to date a radio has lately
been Installed, so thnt the veterans
are right up to thc minute in what
going on in the world. Off to
one side are the steward's office and
canteen store room. The canteen itself, opening back from the reading
room, and with wide folding doors
that can bc thrown back when required, is a well designed place, with
booths for four people down one side,
while three private rooms are also
provided. Down stairs there is a
spacious billiard room, with a new
full sized table, card tables, etc. A
pipeless furnace heats the place, nnd
it is well lighted throughout.

Conservatives Get Probe Into
Working of Mothers'
Pension Aid
(Special to The Heraldl
Victoria, Jun. 25th.—Emphatically
ontradlcting the charge that Con-
arvatism in the legislature concerns
tself only with efforts to embarass
tin* government and make party capital, is the unanimous decision of the
House in ordering investigation of
the workings of the Mothers' Pen-
ions Act, after hearing the argument
if Canon Ilinchlitf (Victoria) in
uoving for a select committee of en-
•uiry on this theme.
To   Investigate  Working!
The Canon spoke dispassionately
and very fairly, in urging obvious
need for betterment of the act. He
was attentively heard, antl even the
Premier interjected an occasional
hear, hear" and "that's quite true,"
as his points were driven homo.
Canon HinchlifVe maintained that
the administration of such sacred
trusts as the mothers' pensions should
be removed from political contacts.
As the law stands, defects have shown
themselves in practice and Injustice
been done legitimate candidates for
pensions. He did not merely criticize
as to these, but offered a seemingly
effective remedy.
Investigation should be actuated
by sincerity of motive," Canon Hinch-
liffc    says — "Divorced    completely
from party or politieal aims, in the
interests of widows left to fight life's
battles  for  their children,   antl   for
hose children, who some day will be
the greatest asset of their province,"
In   1025-6 the sum set aside for
mothers' pensions amounted to $584-,-
000 in all.    For 102G-7 it was $.r)(i7.-

wince Minister for next year approxi-
nate   $« 17,420—$1)00,0(10   for   pensions ami $17,420  for operation.

a place among immortals.
In concluding his remarks, the
.speaker said that It had been said
that lowland Scotch, as a distinct
nationality, came in with two warriors and went out with two bards.
It came iu with Sir W. Wallace, and
Sir Robt. Bruce, nnd went out with
Sir Walter Scott and Robert Burnt,
the first two made the history, thc
last two wrote the story antl sang
thc songs. Let us then do honor to
our national poet, one who is thc
epitome of thc best in Scotland. "Let
us remember again," Mr. Wallace
said, "that tonight we nre joining in
the great fellowship of Burns' lovers

prairies, in strange fnr off lands,

given these readings, and provides

1H27 taxes.
The question of the conveying of
the city works employees to and from
the rock crusher was taken up by Alderman Arnold and the matter considered, in consideration of possi-
ble changes in carrying on this work,
no action  was taken.
In a few remarks given by Mayor
Roberts on the opening of the council
proceeding!   for   the   new   year,   his
worship  referred  to certain  matters
which in his opinion might be profitably considered by this year's council,   among   whieh   was   that  of   the',
adoption of a Town Planning by-law, |
stating   in   his   opinion   this   would!
be a move in the right direction in j
order that Cranbrook might not find]
itself in  the position of other cities
which have  found they are too late
in the adoption of such a measure.      i

isful in capturing any of the jewel-
were up against many of the best
ks. and on each occasion lost out
about   one   point.     Some   of   the

match is not won until the last end,
as might be judged by the game been Kastner of Fernie and Bossenberry  of Cranbrook,  which  went  by

finally completed construction
through to the coast, after many difficulties had been encountered, and
after two government-.- had failed to
put it through. He mentioned some
of the outstanding figures of the
road in those days, Sir William Van
Horne, Thomas Shaughnessey, R. B.
Angus. William White, and others,
and told of the difficulties of the early
operation of the line, when one of
the big problems was the expense of
rc'.urning trainloads of empty can
to the east, when there wu; practically no traffic in that direction.
From these conditions the company
had expanded its business, till it was
now the largest tran continental
company in the world privately owned, with acres* to every part of the
world with \u land and water services. This was a big contrast to
the days when the company could not
even pay its wages for three months,
till the government came to the rescue with a loan, and in the meantime only thc loyalty of the men
had carried it akmg—such men as
Mr. Gill. There was not an official
of the line who would not be proud
to own Mr. Gill as a friend, and
whose office would not he open to
him at any time.
Mr. Flett referred to thc daya
when they were running together on
thc old Field Hill, which was considered the heaviest smooth-rail grade
in America, and he was free to admit that his own worries were lessened when he knew Mr. (Jill was on the
engine at that time.

Victoria, Jan. 22.—With th,' legislature officially opened more than a
month ago and sessional business
now in its second week, and with all
of last year further available to the
govern mon t for tho formulation of
forward moving: legislation, the remarkable situation presents Itself that
no ministerial bills as yet are before
the House save and except the one
incident to the enforcement of cooperative marketing of orchard products and an non-contentions and
trivial technical measure to clarify
doubt as to

Nor is any material public business
even yet foreshadowed, the speech
from the throne having forecast but
one other minor measure, to hotter
safeguard the public in loan company  investments.
Getting   the   Information
Debating what should have been colleagues
and what might have been appro- the morale
priately included in the speech, as
the official program of sessional business, has largely occupied the time
of members to date, together with
forced disclosures by concerned ministers of n wide variety of contrac-
tional and other transactions in which  quiry
This was particularly shown by
the announced intention of General
odium to wlthdray from politics as
at present played, coupled with bis
denunciation of the conduct of liquor
board affairs for unworthy profit, to
which he inferentially ascribed the
corrupting of the machinery of administration.
No Solution For P.G.E.
With the exception of the speeches
of the mover and seconder of reply,
j the Liberals in all the first week did
i not enter the field of debnte, leaving
! it entirely to the opposition, whose
\ attack repeatedly hit home, judging
j from the quemilous interruptions
[ from the government side. Ou Sat-
j urday Premier Oliver made an ef-
I fort to answer all attacks, at the same
time giving a really heart-rending
account of the position of the P.G.E.,
which, according to his report, is
now in a hopeless situation. On this
subject he was listened to with great
interest and complimented on his
presentation of his case, but the rest
of bis address was far below
usual standard. In fact, the effort
plainly showed that bis powers of debate nre failing, aud physically any
strong effort such as here involved
leaves him exhausted.
To date, in the initial debate whieh
the status of referee- soi'ves traditionally as a keynot

questions as to large transactions into

of Scott or of Goule."
Beginning!  of  a  Government
The amnesty question was postponed for settlement by and by, though
Bishop Tache was fretting at the delay, ami secret meetings were being
held among the Metis at Riviere Sale
and at St. Joseph, across the American border.
The organization of provincial government began from the foundation
in n community hitherto unaccustomed, except in the erratic course of
the insurrection, to the elementary
principles of responsible government.
A census, begun in October, gave the
population of the province at 11,903,
of whom ISO.1} were white, 558 were
Indians, who had settled upon thc
land, and 9840 were Metis, French
nnd English. Of the white population of 1565, less than half were
Canadian, less than 250 were Sent

Ireland and France. Writs were issued for the first provincial election
for a legislative assembly on Decern

eutive council of five, under the lead
ership of II. J. Clarke as attorney
general, took over tbe administration of tbe province in a house of
twenty-four members. A legislative

. onsiblc government The French
Metis, who had been clamoring for
representation in the Council Assin-
iboine, now relinquished the leadership to men trained for tlie defence
of their race and religion in the arena
f Canadian politics. The guardians
of French interests urged in vain the
advisibllity of measures to retard immigration, though the delays of the
federal government in completing the
surveys interrupted by Riel and his
fellow obstructionists in 1869, unavoidably impeded the allotment of
homesteads for new settlers and of
the 1,400,000 acres set apart for the
Metis. Tbe Dominion government,
by order-in-council of May, 1871,
agreed to recognize settlement made
in advance of the government s
veys. Beg(r says the population was
land-hungry, and the staking out o"
claims became a popular mania
Notices of claims in scores appeared
in the columns of the Manitoban.
Notice boards were lo be seen almost beneath the wall of Fort Garry
until the Dominion lands agent arrived, in the autumn of 1871 with the
announcement of impartial justice in
carrying out the requirements, terms
and provisions ef the Munitobn Ait,
as it affected the public lands in
spirit and to the letter.
Some Still Oppoicd
Tbe patient policy of conciliation
found little support among those of
tho dominant party who bad borne
the burden and heat of the day,
Even the liberal provisions of land
for the Metis encountered much illiberal criticism iu the course of equal
rlghta to all and favors to none.
Many modifications were made in the
original plans. The method of selecting by hd was undoubtedly a hardship ta thoso who wished to perpetuate French solidarity in race and religion.     Grants were eventually made

the insurrection being slowly fulfilled before their eves. The eminence
of the forces that thrcntened to submerge them gave them nn aspect almost heroic to the resistance of 1869.
Much less than this would nccount
for tbe honor accorded to the lenders
of tbe Insurrection among the defenders of a heroic race nnd n heroic religion.
(To be continued)
vored corporations bidding under
highly preferential conditions, and in
other directions, the Opposition this
session is showing the way, and in
so straightforward and constitutional manner that denial cannot be made
of the soundness of their course.
Opposition    is    Vigorous
There ean be no gainsaying, from
the very specific character of the unprecedented volume of questions as
to the inflated costs of public works
and wastages in the administration
of various established services, that
the plialanyx of members on Mr.
Speaker's left have come to this session armed cap-a-pie and with seemingly inexhaustible stores of deadly
ammunition, thc effectiveness of
which no where is more apparent than
in the citadel of the entrenched administration.
Realizing this and that they are
fighting in a good crusade, no Opposition brigade ever went into a sessional campaign more agressively or
more confidently. They have the
advantage of close and constant contact with their new leader, but in
simple truth they hnve no pressing
med of him in the House at this
juncture, and thc decision is but
cominonscnsc that he should remain
at Ottawa, thus serving his country
dually, until the present government
totters to its inevitable fall and a
general eleclon permits Dr. Tolmie
to make hi** triumphal entry as lender of a new Conservative regime of
careful but progressive government
and resultant enhuncd prosperity and
content for the province thnt gave

Lethbridge, Alberta.—For the first
time since the Canadian Co-Operative Wool Growers, Limited, was organized in 1918, thc annual meeting
will be held in the West. Lethbridge,
the centre of the range wool territory of South Alberta, has been selected for this purpose, the Co-Operative having accepted the invitation
oi the Southern Alberta Sheep
Breeders, Limited, which organization is looking ufter the details of
the meeting. As Southern Alberta
alone contributed over a million and
a quarter pounds of wool, or more
than ten per cent of Canada's total
clip, a very large gathering of sheepmen   from   this district  is expected.
Victoria,    British    Columbia.—The
International Timber Co., a powerful
logging organization financed by
United States capital but administer-
I ed by Canadian officials, hns just

Vancouver,     Britiih    Columbia.—
Canuda stands to increase her share
of trade with Japan on a large scale
this year, in the opinion of Canadinns
and Japanese just back from the Orient. Despite the recent earthquake
nnd the $115,000,000 loss to the
government entailed, there hns been
a steady growth in trade with Canada, which shows every sign of continued expansion.
Edmonton, Alberta.—The first municipal airdrome in Canada hns been
completed here, and thc initial machines to use it came up from the
Federal government's big station at
High River.
Regina, Saskatchewan.—Arrangements have been completed between
the Saskatchewan and Dominion governments for the leasing of marshlands for fur farming purposes by
the Provincial nuthorities. According to the Provincial Minister of
Agriculture, large areas of marsh-
lnnds owned by the Crown are available for fur farming in the northern
part of the province, und completion
of the negotiations between Federal
and Provincial governments means
that applications mny now be received by the Saskatchewan authorities
from individuals desiring to take up
such lands for fur farming.

Expansion All Round  Calls
For An Immense
Regarding the many rumors in
cTculntion an to \vli;it is to happen
as regards the stock nl' The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company
of Canada, Limited, thu Financial
Post says:
"Home people ore being pictured
as losing heart because of the delay
hi thc much talked of stock split for
"The only grounds there arc for
believing that such a split is to be
expected »s street gossip. There is
nothing official lhat any such movo
is contemplated, though some significance has been attached to the redemption of the outstanding; bonds by
an exchange of storks.
"Splitting Smelteis shares, now
that they are selling so high, would
undoubtedly make the shares more
attractive to investors and speculators. It would have a tendency to
widen tht' market. It would ultimately lead to a material enhancement in
price and make those who got in
early and at a low price, a lot more
money than they could hope to make
with the present high priced stock.
These are undoubtedly factors in the
gossip, kind of wish being father to
the thought, though undoubtedly
there is a good deal of soundness lo
the proposal from the company standpoint as well.
Large   Operations   Pending
"But in looking over the situation,
it would seem that thert are grounds
which the directors mitfht well consider sufficient to delay any such action for a year or so. This has to
do with the large expansion program which the company has under
way and which makes it difficult at
the moment to size up just how large
an operation Smelters is going to develop into.
"One important point in regard to
the Smelters' expansion program is
that the company is going to need
a tremendous amount of money. The
Kimberley concentrator is making
this money in sufficient quantities to
allow for liberal dividends and
bonuses on the present stock, and to
leave n surplus sufficient for financial expansions. These latter include:
"Copper Smelter at Pacific coast.
"Steel plant at Trail.
"Quebec  exploration.
"Kxpansion at Trail, Kimberley
nnd Moyie:
A   Future  of   Promise
"As pointed out recently in The
Financial Post, Smelters has two
important copper developments coming along at the Coast in Coast Copper and Sunlbck. These look like interesting mines. The coast needs a
copper smelter and there is a feeling
abroad in B.C. that Smelters will soon
move its whole copper operation from
Trail to the coast. Without having
any idea of what the company's plnns
may be, it is safe to say that such a
move ond a smelter would involve an
outlay running into many millions.
"The next new development that
is pending is the development of a
steel ' industry. Reports from the
coast are to the effect that Smelters
Ib waiting on a sufficient power supply before launching on such a venture. The power is soon to be forthcoming from the West Kootenay power development which is now proceeding. It is said that Smeltehs has had
preliminary plans for a steel plant
under way" for some time.
Coast  Developments
"In addition to these developments, Smelters has a number of
other new activities on the const,
these include the opening up of several new prospects, enlargements at
Trail, Moyie, Kimberley, all involving a considerable amount of cash
and a possible placer gold venture
that may ultimately take considerable
money in providing dredgers, etc.
"Turning to Quebec, where Smelters has holdings totalling 22,000
acres, the company has met with sufficient encouragement to warrant
considerable expenditure on various
groups. There are a number of
these well located and if they come
along   aa   some   engineer!   expect,
Smelters will face larpo expendil ures
on development, mining plants, and
ultimately a smelter as if any success is met with at all it will bo in
gold-copper and possibly zinc proper*
ties. The exploring of 22,000 acres
of mining land is a venture lhat only
a company such as Smelters could
possibly undertake,
::Smelters' recent dividend declar-
"Smelters' recent dividend declaration makes a total for the yeqr
of S10 per share, $2 regular anil SS
bonus on $507,112 shares, or '55,-
071,120. If 10 per cent, regular is
maintained as well as the $8 bonus,
shareholders will get §10.50 in 1027.
"The shares of tbe company were
on a 10 per cent, dividend basis in
1910 when tho stock was split and
the par value changed from $100 to
•$25 per share. The dividend at that
rate whs maintained until the last
quarter of 1020, when it was passed,
in 11*21 and 1U22 no dividend was
paid, but in 1023 dividends were resumed on a (1 pcr cent, basis.

The inquiry must come, for public opinion demands it, but it is

what contributions had been made to

and to whom they were paid. Expenditures, which are chiefly affected, cannot be fully probed, however,

formal accounts. Nevertheless, if it
Is established that pledges were made
by the recipients of donations, or assurances of consideration required by
the contributors, the desired investigation  will have served its purpose.

Mis Stoddart was stricken with a
severe illness over one year ago and
as a result passed through much suffering and severe operations in
Toronto, where she had gone for
special treatment. Returning to
Windermere in the summer of 192(3
she again took on her onnrous duties,
but suffered a relapse, from which she
failed to rally in spite of all that
care and kindness could do for her.
In the fall, accompanied by her sister. Mrs. Chisholm. she returned to
Toronto in order to be with other
relatives and obtain skilled treatment.
Besides leaving a sister who resides
in Ottawa, the late Miss Stoddart

Vct«r«ni Put On Program
The members of the Windermere
district branch of the Legion of the
British Empire, assisted by their
friends, put on a mixed bill with
!<>enl talent in the caste in the McKay's hall, Athalmer, on Saturday,
giving a matinee in the afternoon and
an evening performance. The work
of tbe artistes mus most excellent in
every way and was much appreciated
bv ihose v ho were afforded the opportunity of attending either of the
performances. These mark the first
public appearances of the members of
the body and gives a foretaste of
the treats which are in store for the
years which are to come.
The program was divided into
three acts, the* first being a re-production of the (rood old time negro
minstrel show of which the members
were **.'l veterans of the late world
war. Mr. A. Ashworth took the part
nf interlocutor with G. Williamson
and A. Basil Clarke. W. T. Lee. Herb.
Chester, T. Weir and W. H. Seaton,
wlio formed the front row before tht'
footlights The first part of the act
consisted of dialogues, solos and ad-
dreazes, filled with the customary interlocutory remarks and local jokes,
all done in the best. Tart two was
opened with a sweetly pretty nolo
given by Master Fred Wainwright,
who, as a beau, with powdered wig
.md in a rich costume of brocade and
tatin, made love in a most ardent
and artful fashion to little Miss Margaret Bell. Fred's voice never sound-
I in better form nnd he earned no
- than four encores at the evening   performance.
Tbe second act in this part was a
series of illustrative tableaux, ending with local hits by "Mr. Bangs"
and "Mr. Fitch." Act three was a
ccreaming farce, n burlesque on the
filmtnjr of L'ncle Tom's Cabin. Many
of the familiar amateurs who had en-
tertained local audiences in times
past tonk roles in this. The difficult par; of movie director was perfectly filled by Mr. George Jones.

R. McGary, with the saxophone. Miss
Jessie Webster and Mr. William Guthrie were two other who starred as
The entertainment throughout was
particularly well staged and the parts
'plnedidly taken. Much of the burden and responsibility which has had
to be carried for weeks fell heavily
on the shoulders of Mr. A. Ashworth,

Till*'. Herald lias received from an official source
a copy "!' the summary of proceedings at thc
Imperial Conference last fall in London, which makes
absorbing rending for anyone interested in empire
affairs, Prom even a cursory reading of the summary ni the proceedings, it is apparent that tlie
conference was not brought together fur the discussion of abstracl conditions, but for the consideration of thc problems of inter-empire relations thai
crop up from lime i<» time in i>ne dominion or another, and which call for some uniform method of
approach, so thai nil may be treated on their merits.
It i-- apparent that the conference can be considered
as constituting one of the strongest links between
the mother country and tlte various parts of tlte
empire, and provides a clearing centre for the interchange of ideas and policies that make for a better
understanding of the respective viewpoints represented.
'lhe full conference sessions were only sixteen
in number, spread over a period of five weeks, but
most of the constructive program of Ihe conference was formulated by an inter-imperial relations
committee, on which all the colonial prime ministers
acted along with other heads of delegations. Lord
Balfour, Hritish parliamentary veteran, presiding.
The labors <>f this committee were indeed strenuous,
and their considerations covered a mass of vexatious
subjects, where divergent views would continually
crop up, and out'of il all eatue a sheaf of weighty
resolutions hearing very vitally on the future har-
iitany and well-being of lhe empire.
A few of the outstanding accomplishments of
the conference may he mentioned, hut at that the
idea conveyed oi its comprehensiveness can only
he fragmentary. The title of Ilis Majesty the King
in view of the altered status of Ireland, was changed,
the special position of India considered, the position
and powers of govcrnos-general more clearly defined, and such vital questions as appeals to the
privy council, compulsory arbitration, procedure as
to foreign treaties, limitations of dominion legislation, merchant shipping legislation, Pacific cable,
overseas settlement, and many other matters concerning the internal development of various portions
(if the empire were dealt with.
It is significant that the conference studiously
avoided any attempt to lay down any hard and fast
constitution for the Hritish Empire, recognizing that
as there lias never heen any parallel in history to
the handing together of these nation-units the world
over under a common flag, and owning a common
alliegance, there could be no preecdent-s on whicb to
base such a document.
■   *****
have since charged that thc Conservatives were responsible for this incubus upon the tax-payers of
the province, whereas the facts are that even if it
had been found necessary to modify the terms of the
former contract somewhat, the line could have been
pushed a great deal farther ahead than at present,
But as it stands at present, the government cannot
bc expected to do a great deal with it, since to let
it make too good a showing would mean that
previous Liberal utterances on the subject would
not make very good reading at election time.
Whether its costs money or not, the line lias got
to be made to start from somewhere and lead to
some connections at the other end. To have a terminal at Sqamish, instead of Vancouver is handicapping it, besides adding immensely to the administrative cost of the line. The old Canadian Northern
was in the same position when it ended at Port
.Moody, and it did not take long for thc connection
to be made right into Vancouver, when it was
realized that transcontinental connection was to be
had. It is not a very advantageous connection now,
but it gets thc trains into Vancouver, anil gives it
a chance to take its share of the easthound traffic,
and also lets it bring its share of western grain into
the port. This is what the P.G.E. must do some
way, and the means to bring it about are for the
government to contrive. The same is true in regard
to the northern end of thc line, which docs not take
it anywhere, Any concern taking it over would have
to complete it first, since there is no commercial
value in a colonization line only.
The resources of the province, in the territory
thc linc serves are capable of supporting it,
if given any encouragement at all, and the sooner
the government addresses itself to the problem from
a different angle, thc sooner it is likely to he solved.
***** m
IX a speech he made to the Legislature last week,
Premier Oliver tacitly admitted that the P.G.E.
problem was ttio much for him. He had made
strenuous endeavors to unload the line on to tbe big
railroads in Canada, made inducements to capitalists
to take it off the hands of the province, with big
land grants lo hoot, made overtures to the Alberta
government to gel some logical connection for the
northern end of the linc iu case it is tohe completed
—but all to no effect. The position of tlie enterprise, the Premier says, is now wtirse than it ever
was, and frankly he, does not know what tti do about
The trouble seems to be that the Liberal government hits heen too anxious to show thc people of
the province what au incubus the Conservatives are
responsible for. more anxious for this, in fact, than
to make an honest endeavor to have the line perform the function it was intended for, as a north
and south line. When the Conservative government
fell the line was on the road to completion, with tbe
contractors sewn up in a contract to finish it. From
this obligation the Liberals, when they went into
, power, 'very magnanimously  released them.   They
8's 4's     Final
OUTBURSTS such as thc Courier gave vent to
last week, if they serve no other purpose at
least give the newspaper reading public of the district an opportunity to size up tlie personal traits
they indicate, lt is impossible for the Courier lo
answer criticism, however mild, having regard for
logic, truth and moderation, for it knows not tbe
meaning of any one of them, Perhaps in all fair-
ss it should be said that its understanding of the
last word runs so much tt) application of beer by the
glass that everything else is overshadowed by it.
The props are knocked from under the Courier's
trttcttire of misrepresentation when it is home iu
mind tliat no misstatements were made iu either tlte
Herald or tbe Nelson News, in regard to thc number
of beer licenses that would or would not he issued
here, No prediction was ventured in that direction,
but rumor wliich was prevalent iu the city was mentioned as such, and so stated. The spite whicb tlie
Courier likes to vent on occasion finds an outlet
in endeavoring to construe into this statement an attitude of antagonism on tlte part of thc Herald
towards those who would be presumed to benefit
from the granting of the beer license. Needless to
say tbis foolishness is not shared by others. It is
one of the Courier's own particular brainstorms.
As to tiie contributions which thc two papers
mav make towards local progress in various ways,
this paper has never belittled what thc Courier may
think it is doing in this direction, but that paper
probably knows that there are at least some organizations and enterprises iu tlte city whicb its name
graces which would not cease to function if its connection was removed from them.
There is hope yet, however, that the Courier
will soon take stock of itself and straighten itself
out. It seems to have already arrived at the stage
where notices of events witli revenue attached must
pay for advertising in connection with them, as announced in its columns two weeks ago. This looks
almost as though tlte Courier is gojng to withdraw
from some of the enterprises it lias so assiduously
worked for gratuitously in tlie past, and indicates
a point in newspaper progress that most other
weeklies arrived at almost before the Courier started. The Herald will welcome some evidence that
this policy is bcing adhered to, wliich will justify tlie
stand this paper has taken for a long time.
The Herald refrains at this time from showing
any further the falsity and misrepresentations which
the Courier has put into print in tlie two editorial
references made on the subject that so aroused its
ire, anil if it desire's to carry the matter any farther,
the Herald will welcome the opportunity for a showdown as to newspaper veracity. Readers can judge
for themselves. It is high time a halt was called to
tbe untruthful and misleading bluff which the
Courier tries to get away with from time to time.

Guests of Honor at Banquet
(Continued from Page One)
for the past fourteen years as a
staunch friend. "Go to the senior
men" had been the advice given him
when he first took his present position, and he wus free to admit that
men like Mr. Gill had always been
ready to give him the benefit of their
years of practical experience.
A. J. Ironside, division master mechanic, also responded to this toast,
and referred to the retired engineer's
wonderful record us a "long life well
spent in a great calling." The pension he could now retire with was
a tangible recognition of the fine
record he had made of service with
the company for the benefit of the
public, but better still wus the impression he had left on the hearts of
the men with whom he he had come
in contact.
Toart   to the Guests
The toast to the honored guests,
offered by the chairman, wns given,
followed by "For He's a Jolly Good
Fellow," sung spontaneously by the
company. W. J. Flowers responded
on behalf of the shopmen, mentioning that his acquaintance with Mr,
(Jill hud extended now over twenty-
six and a half years, and he conveyed
to him the best wishes of his colleagues, with all happiness for the
future. Mr. Flowers told of his early
experiences in railroading east of
Winnipeg, and of the great changes
that hnd been brought about in the
succeeding  yenrs.
T. H. Bronsdon spoke for the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen and
Enginemen, and said that the firemen entertained nothing but the
highest respect for the veteran of
the road now retiring, who had proved himself a real friend in every
sense of the word, with all the desirable attributes that could command
respect and esteem. He also took
occasion to point with pride to-*-the
growth of their organization, which
hnd gone on since its inception
1873, till it now embraced a quarter
of u million members. Its work had
been not only to improve the social
und economic standing of its mem-
bcrs, but ulso to encourage better
standards oil service to the company,
and thus to assist in its upbuilding,
and so ulso in the development of
the country. He commended Mr. Gill
for his unique and almost unparalleled record, und hoped he might enjoy
many years of pleasant and prosperous retirement.
George Hennessey, for the B. of
L. E., fully concurred in the golden
opinions entertained of their guest,
whose advent into the company went
buck to the days of construction from
tho Great Lakes to Winnipeg in
1882. He had pioneered west till
reaching the mountains, and ran for
nine years out of Donald to Field.
Later Mr. Gill had come to the Crdw
line, und hud brought the first passenger train into Cranbrook, and was
now to enter upon a period of well-
earned rest.
Acknowledges Toast
Mr. Gill was given a great ovation
when he rose to acknowledge the
toast in his honor, and gave some
intensely interesting sidelights on his
eventful experiences, particularly in
thc early days of his service. He also
wus deeply nppreciative of the tributes paid him, saying while he knew
there were very few railroadmen he
could not regard as friends, he had
not realized how many good friends
he could now count.
Ho went back to the doys when he
had first entered on his railroad career, in 1880, on the construction of
a rond out of Stratford. On the
completion of that project he had
come west to> St. Boniface, at that
time the end of steel in the west, the
C.P.R. not having at that time entered Winnipeg. He had fired on
the old "Countess of Dufferin," and
other engines, and had seen the completion of the C.P.R. line from Portage to, Winnipeg, which later became the main line. These were the
days of the "hay burners," as the
wood burners of those days were
called, and thc tenders were piled
high with fuel, twenty-five cords or
more being consumed on the runs,
which the truin crews used to Uke on
from stacks along the track. Then
came thc conversion of these engines
into coal burners, which brought.fur-
ther tough experiences for the firemen, from the rock and clinkers, and
often, he had been taken out of bed
to go on an engine as the only available -man who could satisfactorily
fire these early coal burners. He
went on to Brandon when there was
nothing there but a few houses, and
no place to sleep by on the cab of
his engine.
Come* West
Later he was running west from
Winnipeg delivering new engines to
the divisional points, and finally
found himself running out of Donald
to Field, up nnd down the big Field
Hill which spiral tunnels later cut
out. At this time f|ve and she engines were common on some of the
trains up ths grade of 4 % and 5 per
cent. He was on this run for about
nine yeurs, later going between Can-
more und Laggan, and then from
Canmore to Calgary, after which he
went on construction out. of Macleod, as far as Brock ett, coming on
to the Crow line twenty-seven years
ago. He had been the first engineer
to tuke a passenger train across the
high level bridge at Lethbridge.
He computed he had run almost
four million miles, und commencing
glneer, with a single exception, west
of Montreal. He had put in all kinds
of service on an engine, including
some winters on the snow plough,
and in weather away below zero on
the prairies. They had to use snow
for water in the winter, und in the
summer it was often "little
better than soup." On one occasion he humorously told how when
the pump and ejector on his engine
had refused to work he had found
lltards, grass and other water insects
clogging things up. In his time he
had met with a few accidents, and
on one occasion his fireman had been
killed; but good luck had always
been with him.
In retiring, ho extended his thanks
to all branches of the service', the
officials included, who hnd shown
their friendship to him so unmistakably. Interspersed in his remarks
were many interesting anecdotes of
those early days that were listened
to with intense interest.
J. T. Survis proposed the toast to
the Transportation Department, and
R. J. Collins responded for thc despatches, conveying their good wishes
to Mr. Gill. He considered it wus a
remarkable experience to bc able to
finish up so welt physically nfter
nearly half u century of strenuous
services ns Mr. Gill was doing. While
they wero sorry to Bee him leave thc
road, it wns good io know thnt he
did so while he was still able to enjoy the satisfaction that such a record brought.
Presentations Made
An interesting incident took plnce
at this junction, when Mr. G. Brock
was called upon to make a presentation to Mr. Gill from the three organizations, which he did, along with
an address, the rending of which he
prefaced with some humorous anecdotes. Incidentally he told how he
had fired an engine for their guest
in 1897, and had worked side by side
with him ever since, und he drew attention to the fact that of those who
start out on the career of an engi-
numbers interspersed between the
toasts ull being supplied by members
and friends connected with the road,
Instrumental numbers were very acceptably given by Miss Alma Sarvis and F. Wood, while vocal solos
were given by Mrs. J. Norgrove, Mrs.
C. Hnrrison and Mrs. Suunders, encores being culled for, and also by
Mr. W. Henderson, who gave two
recitations. A song by Mrs. Norgrove very appropriately referred to
the retirement of un engineer from
the service, and how he would be constantly missing the familiar phnses
of his periodical runs.
Various speakers during the evening did not neglect to mention tbe
pnrt that Mrs. Gill hail, played in assisting hey husband to carry out bis
record of service, and how the added
responsibilities thnt dovolvo on the
wife of a railroad man during his
frequent absence from home had
been shouldered antl admirably carried out ou her part.
The part the ludics connected with
lhe gathering had so successfully carried out was also given due recognition in a toast given them liy G. D.
Carlyle, and this was acknowledged
by  Mrs.  O'Hearn.
With the singing of the National
Anthem there cume to n close this
gathering that for its fine spirit nnd

its intrinsic value, but also for the

Gill responded suitably for their
Old Associations
Further reminiscences of the early
days of railroading came from J. T.
Sarvis, whose, friendship with Mr.
Gill went back to 1897, thus proving
himself something of a veteran in
the service also. Their guest had always proved himself ready to help
the younger men, and never shirked
the heavy jobs that had to be done.
A. W. Hodgson also spoke for the
despatches, and brought greetings
from the Order of Railroad Telegraphers. Incidentally it was revealed that forty years ago, in' 1886,
when Mr. Hodgson had given out his
first train orders, they had been to
Mr. Gill himself, then in Manitoba.
Thirty years later it had been again
his good fortune to return to closer
associations with him.

Chairman and Gentlemen:
General Report
In submitting my report I beg to
stnte thut in the past year, 192G, the
club hud n very successful year, and
I hope this yeur, 1927, will be n banner yenr for the Crunbrook District
Rod and Gun Club. The reason for
our success is that we have had the
wholehearted support of the general
public of this district, and I think
if the great work which the club is
doing continues, tltere is not the
slightest doubt but what the generous
support of tbe public will continue.
Thc total amount collected by various means and ways for 1920 was
$2,001.30, out of this amount
$561.00 was collected for the bnn-
quct, leaving a balance collected for
club purposes of $1,440.30, just $60
short of $1,500.00, which was our
budget nt the start of the year.
There were quite a few firms in
this  district   that   contributed  very
handsomely to our funds. I wish to
thunk them as a whole on behalf of
the club, and thc club also extends
their thanks to certain members who
( made such a great showing in selling
membership tickets, ohi member at

much the assistance thut was given
by the Kimberley district Up to the

hnve reason to believe that there js

The following numbers were elected at the last general meeting as a
canvassing committee: W. .Steward.
\V. II. Wilson, R, p, Moffatt, J, P.
Fink, F. Dezall und M C. Collier,
and I can assure you. gentlemen,
that the above committee canvassed
the business men <>f Cranbrook very
thoroughly, ami each and every business man assisted according to his
f num-iul standing. The Cranbrook
Retail Merchants' Association subscribed through its members the
handsome sum of $200.00; This, of
course, was independent of the above
canvassing committee.
■ In expending the above money it
was very necessary that your executive bu as economical as possible, and
with this in view, I think the greatest
results have been obtained, the following expenditure is named under

lhu the Gyro Cluh would have built
. n aquni um for the purpose of displaying the various specimens of live
I've I hut inhabit the waters of this
district. This aquarium was built
end installed in thc exhibition building at the cost of about 5 100.00. The
cost wag,met by thi Gyros, and this
club affCei d t ■ gel thi display of
fish. Thla club ulso agreed to collect moneys at the exhibition nnd
whatever was collected would go to
defray exp nscs of the aquarium, but
owing to the very bad weather and
poor ;*:* : lance, this club was only
able to collect in the* neighborhood
of about 150:00. Th:s amount was
hnnd.d over to the secretary of the
Gyros, Mr. Sang. In our agreement,
which was vorbal, ii was understood
that alter the fair tlu* aquarium
would beci mo the property of the

geese on his farm at Islington. The

The contents of the issue include
many fine stories of hunting and fishing. The regular departments relating to angling, guns and ammunition

Andy Powell, a good, clean hock
player,  nnd  a  pood  Stick   man,   was
easily  the  stnr of the  game, while
Sam Thompson, in goal, did splendid
work, repeatedly blocking Bhots from

line-up for the home team was: Andy Powell( capt.); Rollie Thompson,
Frank Moore, Harry Moore, .Sam
Thompson; subs, Harry Thompson,
B. O. Iverson, John Moore and Wm.
Mader. In the event of their winning over the Waldo team, the local
team received a challenge from the
hockey team of Wycliffe for a game,
preferably to take place on Wednesday evening of this week. Since
the first victory was assured on Sunday the team took the challenge under consideration and in all likelihood will motor to Wycliffe for the
match. Alec Daye served very well
as referee, while Frank Thompson
was time-keeper for the game, and
both of these will nrobably accompany the team to Wycliffe in this
capacity. The game between the
Waldo-Wardner Junior teams, which
was scheduled to take place following

not take place, Waldo not turning
up. _

Mr. Dan Luce, who is employed

on several former residents who now
make their homes in Vancouver and
other points, among them being Mr.

Elmer Thompson was a Cranbrook
visitor between trains on Friday. By
the way, "between trains" is right,
since the noon train arrived in Cranbrook to find the five (/clock passen-
[gor waiting, giving Elmer about twenty minutes to complete some important shopping. In addition tn being
nearly four hours late, the noon train
also lost forty minutes at Mayook,
when the air brakes locked.
A very enjoyable evening was
spent socially in the Club Hall on
Friday evening last, the mnny local
friends of^Mr. Dim Luce gathering
to do him honor on the eve of his
departure for Port-Hammond, B.C.,
where he will make his future home.
About sixty guests were present,
Various card games and a progressive whist drive were arranged for
the pleasure of the assembled guests
during the earl- part of the evening,
and the fun went on right merrily.
The Wardner pierrott troupe were
present, and delighted the company
with their songs, the latter much appreciating tho chance to hear the
troupe render the catchy songs of
their concert, and it was with much
regret that the songsters were allowed to leave the stage, when dancing
was begun. At ten-thirty a bounteous supper was served by several of
the townspeople, and during th':
hour, Mr, C. M. Pennock, in a very
apptopriate speech, humorously informed Mr. Luce of Ids position as
guest of honor, and presented him
with a handsome cluh hair as a token
of appreciation from his many Wardner friends. Taken completely bv
lu.rprise, Mr. Luce arose in response
to calls of "speech" from the company, expressing his thanks for the
unexpected wift rtnd for* the friendship which prompted it. During his
long resldcncn in Wardner, he stated
«hat he has alws

unsound. It is such .i strong hand that
A should give some indication thereof
to his partner. If A passed, Y will certainly deny the spade bid so tliat the
pass will lie of no value, one way or the
other. The bid of one no-trump is fair
but gives too much information. Try
to conceal the spade strength, if passible, in Uie hope ih.it 7. will bid two
spades and thus give A tlte chance to
double. For these reasons, an iuforma-
tory double seems tho proper bid with
this hand. Y may bid uver this double.
If he does, Z may rebld spades and thus
give A the chance to double. If Y [Kisses, B may bid clubs or diamonds which
suits A's hand. If B bids hearts and Z
passes, A should now bill two no-trump.
There is a good chance, however, lhat
Z will rebld spades over a heart bid and
thus give A tne chance to double. Some
corrcs|wndcnls even suggested that A
bid two spades but this bid Is obviously
unsound. It gives no chance for game
and resigns all hope uf obtaining a
double if 7. rehids spades. All in all, the

maximum opportunity.

Ranee Quarrington of the Plunkett
Revue, whom many will recall during
the recent visit of the show here,
lived up to the tradition of the stage
in Culgary last week. Stumbling
over some baggage in the train while
going to Calgary he broke a leg, but
this, even, did not prevent his ap-
penrunce for his big number in the
show, "In u Monastery Garden," a
number which demanded much in the
way of dramutic interpretation,
and for which no other member
of the company was trained. Although tbe limb hnd been set and
protected by splints, the risk Mr,
Quarrington took as he walked to
his position for the act was by no
means a small one. A plaster cast
was applied soon, so that there would
bo loss danger of a mishap during the
later presentations, but thc actor
showed considerable pluck in carrying
through his number.
A new government building erect*
ed at Clinton, at a cost of $12,000
was destroyed by fire last week, before it had been handed over to the
government by the contractors. The
building was a large one, and was
intended to house the government
agent and staff, the forestry branch
officials there, and the provincial
police, with living quarters. The
furnace was being used to thoroughly dry tho plaster before the building
was used, and when the watchman
discovered thc fire it was too far
advanced to be checked, and there are
at Clinton no fire fighting appliances.
The building was partially insured.
J. F. Smith of this city was especially
interested in this item of news, as
he wus years ago in the government
service ut Clinton, when a $12,000
government building there was a
vory remote possibility and the government business wus transacted in
a building of very modest proportions
On Thursdny evening last, in spite
of tho intensely cold weather, the
Odd Fellows nnd Rebekahs held a
joint social gathering nt thc Auditorium which wus quite successful,
marking the birthday of thc founder of the Ocld Fellows' order. It was
found advisable un account of the
cold weather to put ulf the sleigh
ride whieh it had been intended to
hold, and iu place of this cards were
engaged in in the upper halt, while
badminton took place in the main
hull. At nbout 10.110 thc dance commenced, the music for which was provided by un Odd Fellows' four-piece

The international extension program announced recently hy officers
of the Supreme Lodge, Knights of
Pythias, will, in a large measure, direct thc activities of Crescent Lodge,
No. 33, according to Chancellor Commander Bro. W. Starrett, who was
recently installed with eight other
officers of the lodge to direct the
work of the Pythian fraternity in
this city during the year. The program includes, among other activities,
a definite plan to increase the social
features, quicken interest in community service, nnd to make a stronger appeal to worthy citizens to become members of the Order. The
lodge as set ns a mark in the increase of its membership under the
general plan announced by the Supreme Lodge to secure a twenty per
cent net gain during the year.
Great   Progreia
Commenting on the outline for the
new year, Chancellor Commander
Bro. Starrett said: "The program is
intended to make the lodge a real
factor in the life of the .community,
and to aid in the extension of the
benefits of fraternul membership by
performing its share in thc great national movement. The movement is
supported by nearly one million
members in the United States and
Canada. We have over 6,400 lodges,
and it is the purpose of the program
of activity to make every one of
these lodges the centre of frnternal
accomplishment in performing the
service for which the fraternity was
founded—to make better homes and
better communities in whieh to live.
"Thq Pythian Order now operates
eighteen homes for aged members,
their widows and orphans. Five other
states are building homes. Investment in this phase of Pythian endeavor amounts to more than $4,000,000,
and over 2,000 men, women and children are provided with home comforts. Five grand domains have established educational trust funds, by
which worthy young men and women
are given opportunity for advanced
college training. Nearly two hundred are now being kept in colleges
through loans from these funds.
"The Pythian Sisters, the women's
auxiliary of the Order, has a membership of nearly a half million, and
distributes annually more than ?250,-
000 for the care of orphaned children and for the comforts of the
aged and poverty stricken.
"The Military Department is very
active and is offering to the young
tho   objectives  of other   lodgOS   over
the Supreme Domain."
