Col. Lister
Scores Govt.
Says Tolmie Will Enter Legislature In His Own
Good Time
(Special to The Herald)
Victoria, B.C.—That Hon. Dr. Tolmie, newly chosen chieftain ef tbe
Conservntive dims, is not to bo stampeded into prematurely seeking n
seat in thc H. It. Legislature, but will
await a general election in confident
hope thai when he takes bis place in
the Victorin chamber it will be at
Mr. Speaker's right, was an interest'
ing disclosure lu the House in the
course of a speech tbis week in tho
Legislature by Col. Lister (Creston)
—a speech remurkable for soldierly
directness and straightforward challenge. Reference to tbe new leader's
position came in comment upon the
remarks of General V, Odium, who
apparently had been concerned to see
Hon. Dr. Tolmie in the House, and
was perturbed because the doctor
had not offered in North Okanagan,
where tendered a nomination.
Interior Men For Interior
"I come from an interior constituency," said Col. Lister, "and it is
my judgement that we want the interior of this province represented
by interior men. It has been, and is
yet, a custom of certain sections of
the Liberal party at the Coast to seek
to elect their champion as representatives of interior ridings. They send
to us their Gales and other brain
storms, seeking election at our hands,
and we have not as yet seen fit to
gratify their ambitions, except at
A coterie of Liberal politicians at
Vancouver, in his opinion, assumed
too much in attempting to dictate
the political course of the province
and derived much benefit from provincial expenditures.
"We want local representation of
local interests," in the view of the
Creston member, "and our new leader is in accord with this idea. He
can be of as much use to British Columbia giving us the benefit of his
advice just now from outside, and
at the same time he can continue to
be of much usefulness at Ottawa, and
we are going to keep him there until
we have a general election."
Why  Should Odium Withdraw?
Complimenting General Odium upon "one of the hest speeches ever
delivered in this Legislature," Col.
Lister expressed pardonable curiosity
as to the reasons prompting this
"young, clever and ambitious member" to announce his withdrawal
from politics, in which he might naturally have expected to go far. Why
should he now tell the House he was
'•through"? Could members reach
any other conclusion than that either
he was far from satisfied with the
quality of his party, or that he could
read the handwriting on the wall,
and had decided it would be wisdom
to retire gracefully?
Protesting the references of Vancouver's second member to the constitutional silence of his colleague
from Trail, Col. Lister commented
that that member is thc veteran of

Bro. Dallas wns called upon on behalf of the B. of R. T. to mnke n

enjoyment left yet for them both.
On  receiving the  presentation,  Mr.

fifty sitting down together to do
honor to men whose whole life bad
practically been spent in the employ

Tho chair was occupied by vice-
president D. C. Coleman, and the list
of speakers, which was a most worthy
one, included the following: Sir Hugh
John McDonald, K.C, Sir J. A. M.
Aikens, K.C, W. J. Tupper, K.C, Ed.

The affair was considered to be
one of the most successful of its-kind

The condition of the ten sheets
of ice on which play had been proceeding came in for commendation
from the visiting curlers, and A. C.
Bowness and J. Jackson, who were
responsible for making the ice, were
given a worm vote of thanks. The
Cranbrook Club was also thanked
for their hospitality, M. A. Beale, W.
F. Cameron and others responsible
for the arrangements being given
votes of appreciation.
In the election of officers, E. K,
Stewart, of Fernie, was pressed to
take thc presidency, but could not
be persuaded, nnd in regard to the
take to his bed, and from that time
on, his condition grew worse. It was
seen he waa suffering from a severe
attack of pneumonia and Saturday
about mid-day, he was removed to the
McDougall Hospital, where he passed
away about 4.80 p.m. that afternoon.
The remains were brought to Cranbrook that evening and on Sunday
were shipped to Rossland where his
widow and one son are residing, Mr,
P. Murphy, of Kimherley, accompanying the remains, and interment
was made at Rossland.
The late T. Connors was about
fifty-five years of age and although

The annual meeting of the Girl
Guides' Association was held in tW
Parish Hall on Tuesday, January 11,
the president   being   in   the   chair.
After the reading of the minutes,
which were approved, the annual
reports were read, giving their chief
work for the year, which ran as follows:
During the year three executive
meetings were held. A sleigh drive
and hot supper was given the Girl
Guides in March. In August Miss
Mara, deputy provincial commission-
visited the troop and inspected
each patrol, also giving them some
instructions regarding their work.
On September 28th a banquet was
held in the Parish Hall for the Guides
and their mothers or guardians, about
fifty sitting down to supper, the
girls providing the programme and
the leader putting on a demonstration of their work. On December
14th the girls put on a supper in the
K.P. Hall, quite a number availing
themselves of the opportunity of en
joying a "Jiggs' supper" of corned
beef and cabbage. A neat sum was
realized. Miss McCaslin, leader, tendered her resignation on account of
leaving town, this being accepted
with regret. A social evening was
held at the home of Mrs. McFarlane
in honor of Miss McCaslin, when she
was presented with a beautiful silver basket and an address in appreciation of her untiring work with the
Girl Guides. Miss Bessie Woodman
was appointed leader of the guides,
filling the position vacated by Miss
McCaslin. This concluded the year's
The election of officers resulted as
Mrs. McKowan,
Mrs. Genest

Mrs. McFarlane
Mrs. Baxter and
Mrs. Gill were added to the executive.
The secretary was appointed to
secure a hall for the Guides at the
least expense, for the coming year.
It was decided at this meeting that
owing to so many of the younger
rirls of the town who were desirous
of becoming Guides, a troop of
Brownies would be formed, and
.eaders would be procured to look
after them.

WWte Spruce. W, R. Ross, K.C, of
Kimberley and Cranbrnok, is understood to be representing a number of
former workers at the White Spruce
Co. who have filed liens for their unpaid wages. On Friday four additional writs were issued in the county
registry at Fernie, totalling a further
SIOOO against the defunct Superior
Spruce mills. This swells the total
number of claims against this concern to the neighborhood of $25,000
and 105 woodmen's Hens. The financial collapse of the Superior Spruce
mills cnme about following a fire
which destroyed the sawmill. It is
estimated that in addition to plant
and equipment this company has some
2,000,000 feet of logs in the woods
and over 0,000,000 feet of lumber in
its mill yard.
Big Bonspiei
Is Under Way
Thirty-five    Rinks    Contest
Events; Likely Not Finish
Till Saturday
Not for many years past has the
Crow's Nest Pass Curling Association
bonspiei been favored with such
ideal curling conditions as have prevailed here this week for the big
event. A threatened thaw on Sunday afternoon did not materialize,
and that night the weather tightened
up to keep the ice in splendid condition. Since tbat time it has b->en
gradually getting coky., so &*( if
no one else "rias been' satisfied, the
curlers have not been heard to complain.
Bett Ice Ever
The splendid ice has had a great
deal to do with the unprecedented
success of the bonspiei. Rinks were
entered in the event from as far
away as Medicine Hat, and other
points represented were Lethbridge,
Coleman, Bellevue, Pincher Creek,
Fernie, Bull River, Kimberley, Char -
man and Lumberton, and fen riiA-
om Cranbrook Club. Rinks had also
been expected from one or two other
places, including Carmangay and
Michel, but these did not materialize,
the actual entries numbering thirty-
three rinks. Tht usual seven events
were played for, the first of which
was the Interprovincial, in which ten
rinks from B.C. met ten Alberta
rinks, and the side with thc- greatest
number of points to its credit played
down for the jewelry. This was the
opening event of the Spiel. The
other events are the Grand Challenge,
the Trites-Wood, McGrath, International, Lethbridge Brewery and the
Consolation. The splendid display
of prizes shown in the window of the
Beattie-Noble store, shows that the
events are being well supported by
the various clubs, and keen interest

Wycliffe hull, in response to requests
from the townspeople there. The
troupe met with their usual success,!
playing to a packed hall. Tho constant heavy applause which mel each
number, testified fully to the appreciation wilh which the audience greeted the performers as the concert
worked to a triumphant close. The
players themselves were in splendid
condition, putting over their songs
and stories with fine vivacity. The
Wycliffe concert makes the third out-;

Miss Isa Taylor left on Saturday
evening for her home in Waldo, after .spending the past week in Wardner, filling the position in the Company store during the illness of her
sister, Mis.s Grace Taylor, who suffered an attack of Germun measles.
Lawrence Backs motored to Waldo
on Saturday evening to spend the
week-end with his parents.
Mrs. Herman Renstrom and daughter, Isabel, arc both confined to their
home this week, suffering with heavy
colds. Quite n number of Wardnerites huve been on the sick list during
the past couple of weeks with these
colds, which appear to have a tendency towards pneumonia.
Mr. Geo. Welsford, of Cranbrook,
, motored to   Wardner on Friday to
j Bpend u few days with his brother,

Messrs. Grahame Danohoe and Al.

remain hero if he is able to secure
work.   At present Mr. Hanson is the
guest of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Renick.
On Sunday last many WardneriteB
enjoyed their first staking on the
new open-air skating rink, which is
the culmination of weeks of steady
work on the part of about a dozen
of the younger men of the town,
The boys have been hard at work for
several weeks nnd now have a sheet
of ice in fine condition, measuring
about 190 by 1*0 feet, nil enclose<
with a five-foot board fence. So
well bus the work been finished that
not only will those interested in ice
-ports find plensure in the plot, since
it has boen built also to the order
that after tbe closing of the ice sea-
sou, the ground will be used for bas-
kelbnll and tennis courts. On Sunday last several skaters were out testing the ice, and tbe crowd steadily
grew larger as the dny progressed.
I Hiring the afternoon the rink was
cleared of all skaters for the benefit
of the hockey players, captains Herb.
Gillis and Andy Powell each choosing
a pick-up tenm. Both men are splendid hockey players, having had much
experience in larger cities, and showed such good judgment in picking
their teams that each found it impossible to gain a higher score than
the other, the game finally finishing
after much exciting play, in a A-<
score. Several spectators were on
hnnd to applaud the boys, although
it was but nn impromptu affair,
seemingly being much pleased by the
teams' exhibition nt this, their first
f-ames of the season. Several of the
ocal lady skaters have been heard
recently discussing the forming of n
ladies' team locally. As fnr as this
is concerned, it is hardly probable
that it will take place this winter,
since lack of opportunity has tended to make the skill of some of them
a little "rusty." However, if, with
this idea in mind, those interested
will get out and put in plenty of
practice during the coming week*:.
such a team may be formed next
winter and do good work. Meanwhile it has been reported that the
local men's hockey team have accepted a challenge from the Waldo Hock-
tem to the effect that a game will
take place in Wardner on Sunday
afternoon next.
Mr. and Mrs. Lee Ruder returned
to Wardner on Tuesday evening, after spending- the week-end visiting
friends, and on a business visit in
Mr. Paul Storey, local ugent for
Westinghouse radios, hus sold a three-
tube machine to Mr. Joe Bernard,
barn-boss for the locnl C. N. P. Lumber Co., which he has installed at bis
residence this week. Mr. Storey is
certainlv installing plenty of Westinghouse machines, both locally and
in neighboring towns.
Messrs. C. Barnes, Jr,, and K. Cunningham left on Monday for the Baker Lumber Co., Camp 8, where they
will spend the next couple of months,
having taken a contract for cutting
logs with that company.
Arrangements for the local C. G,
I. T. week have been completed, and
the week will be held January 30th
to February Gth. During that week
the local C. G. I. T. group will present a pageant, similar to the one
held last year. It will be remembered that the various groups in the
province sold bonds to ensure the
salary of the girls' secretary, her
travelling expenses and the expenses
of the supply department. The objective is $.1,650. Last year the
Wardner C.G.l.T. group raised
$37.50 of this amount, nnd thereby
won the provincial banner, and also
the district banner. This year the
girls are not selling bonds, but are
asking members of the community to
help the district banner by contributing 50c or $1.00 to the welfare of
the C.G.l.T. of B.C. A definite dote
for this pageant will be given in next
week's issue. Everyone will be cor
dinlly welcomed. Mrs. J. E. Scan

Mr. Rudolph Appel was a Cranbrook visitor between trains on
Thursday, making the journey to obtain medicnl advice, For some days
Mr. Appel had been suffering acute
pains in the right side, which were
feared to be appendicitis. Upon examination, however, these were
found to be caused from the muscles
of the side being torn from the ligaments. After being securely strapped to enable their healing, Mr. Appel was enabled to return to his home.
Tuesday morning the pains again developed, accompanied by a considerable swelling of the injured side, and
as a result Mr. Appel was admitted
to the hospital for further treatment,
where he is at present still confined.
Mr. M. O. Holmes returned to his
home on Sunday evening from Cranbrook, where he has been confined
during the past two weeks in the St.
Eugene Hospital, recuperating following an operation for nppendieitis.
A very successful meeting of the
Wardner Pnrent-Teucher Associn-
tion was held in the Club Hall on
Thursday afternoon last. With the
president, MrB. A. J. II. Donahoe, in
the chair, tbe meeting was opened
with about seventeen members present, and one visitor. The treasurer
nnd corresponding secretary, Mrs. G.
W. Donahoe and Mrs. G. V. Sinclair,
respectively, were unable to be present through illness, their reports and
business matters being read by Mrs.
P. Thompson, vice-president. The
members of the Association were
notified that the first-aid kit, purchased by them for use in the local
schools, has been received and will
be immediately turned over to thc
school principal, Mr. B. O. Iverson,
who will attend to its disposal. The
kit is said to be one of the best
equipped of its kind, and will certainly find a welcome place at the school-
houses. Mrs. H. B. Headdon sent
in her resignation as program convenor, to he read before the meeting,
nominating Miss Jennie Hopkins as
her successor. Mrs. Henddon's resignation was accepted, Miss Hopkins
accepting the nomination. Miss Hopkins was also elected membership
convenor, taking the place of Mrs.
Win. Mader. A general discussion
next ensued, concerning the heating
of tho schools, which is reported as
not being entirely satisfactory, finally culminating in a motion that the
school committee of the Association
wait upon the local school board for
a further discussion regarding the
matter. Correspondence regard the
purchase of a clock for the big school
wns read, and since the present funds
are too small to allow of immediate
the matter was postponed for a few
months, until such time as the purchase can be made. The president
then brought up the suggestion offered as to the advisability of holding
an open social evening to which the
whole town be invited, men included.
This was considered to be gi good
idea by the association, with the result that it was decided the affair
should take place on Thursday even-
ing, January 27th. Their will be ah
solutely no charge for the evening, it
being held merely as a means of
bringing together the townspeople
nnd the association in the welfare of
the children. Cards, games, ping-
pong, etc., and a short program will
be given, to creditably full the evening.    Refreshments will also be serv-

A bid that is sound in itself, that is,
that may contain sufficient strength to
make the number of tricks in the suit
indicated, may be very unsound in
other respects. It may be of such a
character as to deceive partner or to
enable the opponents to block further
bidding by making a shut-out bid. For
that reason, before you make a bid,
try to figure out what conclusion your
partner will draw from it, and then
what action he or your opponents may
take. If your bid conveys the information to your partner that it should and
leaves you in a position to go ahead
with the bidding, irrespective of the
opponents' bidding, vour bid is sound
but not otherwise. Too many pi
make a bid without a thought of its in
fluents on their partner or of what they
will or should do if their opponents
overbid. Try to think of your first bid
as the beginning of thc story aud make
it only when you are sure you know
what to do later. All sound bidding
should be part of n harmonious whole,
the first link of a chain of bids, and not
a disconnected effort.
The following hands arr illustrative
cf the point just emphasized: "Think
of what your partner or opponents may
c*o, before making a bid. If you are prepared to meet any action they may
take, your bid is sound; otherwise, not.
Be sure that thc bid you decide upon
is one that you arc prepared to back up

Spades are trumps and Z is in the lead.
How can he bo play the hand that Y-Z
can win all of the tricks against any defense? This little problem is a fine example of forcing discards, B is forced
to discard either the winning heart or
one of his clubs. Z should lead the
queen of hearts and win the trick with
the ace in Y's hand. He should now
lead the ma of clubs from Y'e hud,
winning the trick with the king in his
own hand. He should now lead the five
of spades from his hand and discard the
ten of hearts from Y's hand. B is now
forced to discard. If he discards the
king of hearts, Z's hearts are good. If
he discards a club, Y'a clubs are good.
In either event, Y-Z will win all tht
d. It is hoped that a targe percentage of the town will turn out for the
evening, and a jolly social time and
a warm welcome will bo accorded
everyone attending. Please remember that the association is not restricted to parents, but is open to all

A number of local dancers motored to Jaffray on Saturday evening to
ttend the dance put on by the Farmers' Institute, in the Jaffray Hall.
For some time it looked as though
no dance could be held, since the
music, the O. K. Trio of Fernie,
whicb had been engaged for the occasion, did not arrive until the lute
hour of 12,80 midnight, having bad
difficulty In travelling over the Fer-

musician, however, brought out nn
accordinn and played some good

Anderson, Andy Granberg, Rollie
Thompson and Miss Vera Renstrom.
Messrs. Theo. Thompson, and son,
Harry, Alec Daye and Lome Balding

touch of thc trip was that of Mr.
Thompson, who visited a friend of
his school days, Mr. John Thompson,
who is confined to the hospital with
a broken leg. The two men were
schoolmates years ago in Norway,
and had not seen each other for
thirty years until they met again in

so, although the ice blocks were not
so thick ns usual, measuring about
twelve inches.

The Wardner Athletic Club Entertainment Party gave a very enjoyable
programme in the Wycliffe Recreation Hall on Wednesday evening last.
The players must have been encouraged by the goodly number present,

on all sides as to tho quality of the
programme. The local allusions introduced were very apt and greatly
enjoyed by everyone.

Last evening I was talking
With n grocer, old and gray,
Who had told me of a dream he had,
'Twas just the other day.
While standing in his offlce
The vision came to view,
For he saw an angel enter
Dressed in   garments   white   and
Said the angel, "I'm from Heaven,
The Lord just sent me down
To bring you up to glory,
And on your golden crown.
You've been a friend to everyone,
And worked hard night and day,
You have supported many,
And from few received your pay,
And we wnnt you up in glory
Where you desire to be,
So place your trusting hand in mine
And come along with me."
Then the angel and the grocer
Started up to glory's gate,
But when passing close to Hades,
The angel murmured "Wait!
I have a place to show you—
It's the hottest place in hell,
Where the ones that never paid you
Do in torment always dwell."
And behold the grocer saw them,
His old patrons by the score.
And grabbing up a chair and fan,
He wished for nothing more.
But waB bound to sit and watch them,
As they sizzle, singe and burn,
And his eyes would rest on debtors
Whichever way they'd turn.
Snid the angel, "Come on, grocer,
There's the pearly gates to see."
But the grocer only murmured,
"This is Heaven here for me."

compulsion was contrary to the gen
ius of British institutions and practice. When tbe second member for
Vancouver was a brigade commander
in France, be had issued more than
one order that was compulsion per
sc. Home of these orders were not
exactly popular, yet there was sound
■reason for them. They all wanted to
win the war. The end justified the
means. Somewhat similar principles
applied to the matter of the fruit
growers' dilemma, and tbe drastic
means proposed for its solution.
"In my opinion we have to look
to the federal authority for adequate
relief," said Col, Lister. "Our government is deeply interested, or
should be, in the success of the fruit
industry, yet only a few short weeks
ago its members were running about
the country doine all within their
power to secure the re-election of a
Liberal government at Ottawa which
had shown itself unalterably opposed
in practice to the interests of the
British Columbia fruit growers, thus
demonstrating the insincerity of their
present attitude of sympathy and
In 1926 fruit imports had more
than doubled, while the growers of
British Columbia could not make a
living. He doubted if compulsory
co-operative marketing would lift the
fruit growers' burden, but there
could be no denying that the government at Ottawa could and should rectify the situation with one stroke of
the pen."
Soldiers On The Land
Credit whs taken for the government by the fourth member for Vancouver on the score of what it lately
had done in reducing the purchase
terms of lands for returned soldiers
at Merville and Camp Lister. He had
desire to detract from any credit
due, but the fact was, unfortunately,
that governmental action in this mat-
tor came too lnte. He had long ago
advocated the belated reductions announced, and had these been sooner
allowed, there would now be a hundred soldier settlers at Camp Lister,
instead of less* than twenty. The returned soldiers who had gone on the
land found their position far from n
happy one. When unable to make
their payments, they had even been
subject to eviction by the sheriff,—
those men who- had answered the
call. In his view any man who had
gone overseas and fought for thc Empire and returning to Cannda had
been unable to get a job at his civil
trade or profession, was entitled to
very special consideration and leniency when he went on the land in
order to keep out of thc bread line
and avoid becoming a public charge.
These men were trying to make a
living, and in taking up the fight
for existence under heavy .handicaps
on returning to civil life, displayed
the same sound citizenship that they
did in joining up at danger's call,
and if they fell down, it was up to
very man in the province to give
them the fullest measure of kindly
Road  Work and  Patronage
Touching on the matter of roads,
the member for Salmon Arm had instanced the large amount of $1*1,000,.
000 desired by the Minister of Works
for new rond construction as presaging nn early election, a conclusion
with which he could not agree.
Roads certainly were needed, but
omparativcly few of these new
roads were devised to benefit the
settler. They were tourist roads, and
he found himself forced fo confess
lhat as to the tourist as a contributor
to provincial prosperity he could not
hare the popular enthusiasm. So
far as the interior wns concerned,
the tourist visitor was of little worth
the country. Tho Minister of
Works was to be congratulated on
iloing the best in his power under
circumstances making it impossible
for his deportment to function with
full efficiency. The Minister was
heavily handicapped in the performance of his duties, for it was apparent
lhat nearly everyone working on the
public roadl must have performed
ie service to the Liberal party.
No! No!" came promptly from
the Premier nnd the concerned Minister.
Col. Lister expressed satisfaction
with the last year's appropriation for
his district's road requirements, but
sturdily maintained thnt the public
wns entitled to, but does not receive,
100 per rent value for expenditures
made. He did not expect thnt the
Minister could stand over every man
engaged on road work, but supervision of the work should be such
that honest service would be rendered. The trouble todny was that too
mnny of the men in charge are political heelers nnd do not care whe.
ther honest work is done or not.
"Wo want to wnsh out this wasteful system," declared Col. Lister,
"and see that the mnn who honestly
does the work gets thc money the
public pays—and instead of getting
two miles of road for our money,
we will then get three." ,
Promises ns to tho abolition of the
patronage system had been freely
made by this government, yet under
it that system had been demonstrated
nt its worst. In summer In his own
district there were many forest fires
with a large fighting force employed.
Provision for these wns not always
in accordance with ordinary business
economics. The Minister was not to
bc blamed in such matters except in
neglecting to sec thnt supervision of
[lublic expenditures wns honest. The
ocal member in his opinion was en
titled to consultation in the matter
of local appointment!.

A fire which did damage to thc
extent of about $025.00, took plitoe
on Saturday morning last, in the
early hours, at the New Cnfe, Van
Horne Street, necessitating a fight
of about three hours before the fire
department had the blaze extinguished. The trouble apparently originated in a defective stove pipe between the ceiling and the floor above,
at the rear of the building, and when
at its height the fire appeared to be
a very serious one.
Wm. Dicken, president of the Fernie Agricultural Society, represented

he was met by several people who

to handle passengers, baggage und

motive power is contained within n

official^ to be a type that will satisfactorily handle thut class of traffic
over this line, and the test now being
made, being under more or less severe climatic conditions, should prove
its adaptability or otherwise. In the
event of the gas-electric car being :

Thc Sunday school room of the
United Church was crowded on Monday evening last, when Dr. F. M.
Auld showed lantern slides of his
work in China. Dr. Auld is in charge
of one of thc largest hospitals in
Northern China, at Wei-Whei, Honan
province. The pictures revealed some
of the terrible conditions among the
people of this vast area. It Is the
only hospital among a population of
two million people and is under the
auspices of the United Church of
Canada. No finer tribute to the
value cf the Christian missions could
be presented than the fact that this
liquor control, the Creston member
condemned the beer manufactured in
this province and offered for consumption, as unfit to drink.
Col. Lister put himself on record
ns far from a prohibitionist. "But,"
said he, "if there is not a marked
improvement in the quality of the
B.C. beer I am going to get out and
work with both feet to put that beer'
out of business. No decent beer is
made in the province at present, nnd;
if the brewers don't improve their!
output, they arc certain to kill their,
own trade. The evidence taken by,
the Customs commission shows thnt
large sums are paid for protection'
by these brewers. I don't know to
whom these moneys are paid, or who
Is supposed to rive the protection,
but they certainly aren't going to
it mny protection from  me  until
ty make a Utter product."

Honor was brought to the British
shipping world and more especl*
ally to the Canadian Paeilie liner Melita
when on November Uth, she steamed
Into the harbour of Antwerp and was
the 10.000th ship to enter tbat neat
port during the year, lt created a
record for the number of ships
docking at any European port with
the sole exception of London, during
such a period.
The occasion was marked by fetes
throughout the city in which the
whole population of Antwerp took
part. Telegrams of congratulation
were sent by notabilities from all over
Belgium including one from King
Albert, and there were greut parades
of labor, industrial and commercial
organizations in the principal streets.
In response to the welcome given
the Melita by the eitv, W. I). Cresset,
Managing Director for the Canadian
Pacific in Belgium, organized a luncheon aboard the vessel. He was assisted by Capt. A. II. Notley, commander of the ship, und otlicers. The
guests included Mayor Van Cauwel-
sort, Burgomaster of Antwerp, with
several of the Aldermen; Consul-General Rowley, for Great Britain; and a
large number of the shipping, commercial, industrial beads of the port.
Mr. Grosstt in hia address of welcome said he waa proud to think tbat
S.S. Mellta was the 10,000th ship to
enter the port of Antwerp since thej
beginning of the year, both because j
she flew the British flag and because
sho was u Canadian Pacific ship. II'*
pointed out thut this vessel, the S.S.
Minnedosa. the S.S. Montnalrn and
the S.S. Montroyal all used the port
and during the current year had
carried over 10,000 passengers.
Burgomaster Van Cauwelaert read
a telegram of congratulation from
H.M. the King of Belgium. It was as
follows: i thank you for your
thoughtfulness in communicating to
me this happy news, and I s'-ml In tin-
city of Antwerp with my heartiest
congratulation*-, my slncerest wishes
for    the    ever-growing    increase    of

Consul-General Rowley said that
10,00') Ships within R period of ten
months and u half constituted a
record for nny European port, London excepted. The port was the
outlet ior un interior navigation

closed the proceedings.

City Mall at a reception tendered by
tho Mayor and Aldermen at which

FEET of clay on idols of brass—how. well the
description seems to suit the latest upset from
filmdom. This time it is the domestic relations of
the famous Chaplins lhat are to he dissected for the
diversion of the sensation-loving public of this continent. Not a detail that can he published will be
missed when the case comes to trial, and from the
standpoint of yellow journalism it seems like a
heaven-sent episode whicb can bc dished up with
luridness for the edification of the public, just at
the time when another California sensation seems to
have passed off into thin air.
It seems to be the familiar story of comparatively quick prosperity thrust too suddenly upon an
idol of tbe public, though il must he admitted that
the public has as yet only heard one side of the
story, lt seems that no pinnacle of fame brings
more perils than tbat reached by film stars when
thev become idols of tbe public. Careers- that show-
grit and determination in getting to the top of thc
ladder in filmdom go all to pieces when they have
achieved their ambitions. Perhaps it is because
there is little more left to attain, antl the energies
that have been spent in climbing upwards must find
an outlet elsewhere. The pity is. however, that the
few, comparatively speaking, who gain notoriety
from episodes tliat are not always very choice, get in
the limelight, while little is heard of those who pursue their paths in the profession with honorable circumspection, though with less spectaciilarisni.

The hockey season opened in Cranbrook Thursday evening last, when
Wycliffe were visitors in a game
which was enjoyed from start to finish. Especially for an opener wub
the brand of hockey surprising, and
the majority of those present were
agreeably surprised, it giving promise
of many good gomes during the rest
of the season.
First period Cranbrook started
right in apparently to show that they
still had a hockey team, with the result that things were much their own
way during this period. Enie Hogarth started with a nice goal unassisted, followed later by a shot from
Lewis, which got by Luther, and by
n nice piece of combination work
Lewis notched the third for Cranbrook from a pass by Logan. Cranbrook's fourth and last goal in this
period was scored by Logan unassisted. Just before the end of the first
stanza thc hard-working Jimmie Jones
got one in from close range in Hogarth.
Wycliffe Stag* Comeback
The second period opened with Wycliffe on the defensive, the Wycliffe
defence, and particularly the goalie,
getting in some valuable work. During thiB part of the period there were
mnny Cranbrook players ruled off
for minor offences. Wycliffe then
took n hand in the game and were the
aggressors until thc bell rang, DeFoe
scoring unassisted during the latter
part of the period.
The third period opened with both
teams going strong, Hogarth being
called upon to stop some hard shots
but distinguishing himself between
the posts. Jones, assisted by H.
Johnson, of Wycliffe, was playing a
good game but was unable to beat
the Cranbrook goalie. Cranbrook
wns first to Bcore, the puck being
in possession of the Wycliffe goal
keeper when he was shot back into
the net. H, Johnson, of Wycliffe,
the youthful wonder of that team, so-
cured the next tally, followed later

by seventeen minutes and thirty-five

beaten by Russlck, second tn this

Out of the nineteen teams that
started the race, all but one finished,
this being Wllbrod Poirler. of Anaon-

on Thursday and Friday and found
the third day's prospects too tough.
Thousands of people were on hand
as the team driven by Dupuis for A.

Big Bonspiei
It Under Way
(Continued from Page One)
and that it would not be long before
Cranbrook had the pleasure of a return visit from them.
A violin solo by Mr. Vincent Pink
was enthusiastically received and
brought forth rounds * of applause,
necessitating him responding vdth r&
peated encores, one of which was
"The Rosary."
Mr. J. S. Kirkham, whtf was introduced by the chairman'as one who
had done probably more than anyone
else to establish the Crow's Nest
bonspiei, claimed to be a judge of
good bonspiels and good music, and
said it wns his pleasure to compliment thc Cranbrook association for
thc excellence of the spiel which they
were pulling off, and nlso to thank
nnd pay a tribute of praise to Mr.
Vincent Kink for thc violin selection
which he had so pleasingly rendered.
In n happy vein ho referred to the
fine ice wliich thoy had been provided with, and intimated that he wns
immensely pleased to hnve been honored with re-election to tho presidency of tho Crow's Nest Association.
He extended n cordial Invitation for
all to visit Lethbridge next year, and
concluded with a few words of praise
for W. F. Cameron ond the interest
he continued'to take in the curling
Mr. S. Herchmer, introduced as the
energetic secretary of the association,
said that he felt the bonspiei was a
splendid idea, affording as it did an
opportunity.of renewing the associations of past years. They became occasions which were dearly cherished
as time went on; if perchance an old
face was missing it was a keen disappointment. A few well told stories
concluded a well received talk.
Several songs by Mr. Jordan were
concluded his short address.
As president of the local association, Mr. A. C. Bowness extended
greetings to the visiting curlers, and
voiced his appreciation of the manner in which the district was represented at the spiel. He referred to
the pleasure that he had taken in trying to provide them with good sheets
of ice, and jocularly remarked that
his absence from the spiel was in
reality to let the outside curlers have
a chance, and not as was reported
on account of sickness. He spoke in
the interest of a good attendance at
Lethbridge next year.
Mr. Les Dwelley of Lumberton
made a great hit with the crowd by
his rendering of several popular selections, in which the banquetters
took much pleasure in joining. Repeatedly encored, Mr. Dwelley might
have been singing yet so far as the
wish of his hearers was concerned.
Cranbrook  Ed.  Appears
Possibly the most interesting item
on the welt-balanced program which
was prepared by Mr. F. Marsh, was
the showing for the first time in
Cranbrook of the moving pictures
taken of the famous Cranbrook Ed.
previous to his departure after his
capture. This was a surprise and a
treat which had not been counted on.
Doubtless other opportunities will be
had of seeing the, excellent views.
The film, which is 500 feet in length,
shows Cranbrook Ed. being led into
the city, coming in from the rink
via the Mount Baker Hotel, passing
Wilson's Vulcanizing Works to corner of Royal Bank, where he was rc-
christened Cranbrook Ed. by his worship mayor Roberts. Pictures show
Miss Marie Pntteraon breaking a bottle of champagne over Ed.'s head,
also the presentation of flowers to
Miss Pnlterson as winner of the popularity contest, the flowers being purloined by the elephant, who seemed
to resent anyone else appearing in
the limelight on thnt particular occasion except himself. The visit to
the Victoria Cafe is shown, where his
last meal in Crnnbrook was purtaken
of, the view of the elephant eating
outside thc cafe being quite clear.
From thence to the embarking for
California was then shown. In the
picture could be seen several Cranbrook people, including Mrs. W. J.
Bnrber, Mrs. Ira McNaughton and A.
,1. Ironsides, who looked after the interests of the Sells .Kioto Circus Co.
and who through the production of
the picture was, with Mr. K. Marsh,
the originutor of tho idea, and J. G.
Bennett, owner of the picture machine, party to the production of the
picture. The novelty was much appreciated. Mr. Kred Nelson, of the
Nelson Studio, operated the projecting machine.
Mr. Jack O'Neil, representing Kimherley, added his words of praise
with respect to the spiel, and efficiency therein, ond the entertainers. He
extended a cordial invitation to visit
Kimberley, and expressed his opinion
that Kimberley should become associated with thc C.N.P.C. Association.
Muiic From the Visitors
Mr. Alex McMurdo, of Pincher
Creek, sustained his well earned
reputation as an entertainer through
several well rendered songs, which
quite evidently captured the fancy of
the crowd.
As later explained by Mr. Kirk-
ham, the curling song which he sang
was composed by Mr. Hunt, secretary
of the Alberta association, to whom,
together with Mr. McMurdo, lie waa
pleased to give credit.
Mr. G. F. Marsh was particularly
happy in his remarks in the toast to
the Ladies' Curling Club for thel excellent service they had rendered in
putting on the banquet. In their
drinking to the toast, and by their
tongs, it waa made perfectly daar
that their efforta bad been appreciat
ed.   The toaat waa ably  second*
by Mr. W. R. Grubbe.
Mrs. W, F. Cameron, president of
thc ladies' club, suitably responded.
The Kootenay song* with Alan
Graham at the piano, was led by G.
F. Marsh and joined in by many Rotarians present.
Songs by Mr. Tully and J. McDonald, of Fernie, concluded the musical
program, after which.' "Auld Lang
SyweM. and t^:N«i6wa::;An^e»
brought the evening to a close.
At the meeting an invitation from
Mr. E. G. Montgomery of Kimberley
on behalf of tha Consolidated Mining
& Smelting Co. for the visitors to
visit Kimberley was read, and signs
of appreciation were evident among
those present.

Definite announcement one way or
the other would be made early ia

Northern Ontario has 2,600,000
square miles of mineral lands, of
which only 7 per cent, has been exploited; and yet this seven per cent
has already produced metals to the
value of a billion dollars. Such was
the summing up of George C. Bateman, Secretary of the Ontario Mining Association, speaking before the
Engineers' Club. "Twenty years
ago," he reminded his hearers,
'Northern Ontario was practically
sn unknown wilderness. Today it
is the centre of a large and growing industry."
A combined service to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company of

Red River Expedition
On April 6th the Hudson's Bay
stores wore re-opened, only after
Governor McTavish had been forced
by Itiel to a loan of £3,000, a prospective loan of £2,000 in case of
disagreement with Canada, the use
of stores from Fort Garry to the
value of £4,000, and finally an agreement that the whole of tho Company
in the north-west should recognize
the Provisional Government.
The pressure brought to bear is
outlined in McTavish's letters to the
company in London: "Compliance affords our only chance of avoiding
immediate inevitable destruction."
Generous , distribution of funds
and stores proved insufficient to keep
the "Assembly" and the Metic in attendance at Fort Garry. In April
Riel raised the Union Jack, but with
news from Canada there was a veritable migration of the Metis and
their Bupportcrs. Riel himself, a prey
to uncertainty, wan left with a corporal's guard at Fort Garry. Archbishop Tache wrote that the troops
were coming "to aid us," and that
they had "friends, sincere, devoted
and powerful." The British troops
and the Quebec volunteers were not
unfriendly, but the Ontario militia
had enlisted in response to the wnve
of indignation after the death of
Reil Fleet From Regulars
The stores at Fort Garry had been
carried off in vast quantities without
let or hindrance. "There were threats
of intercepting the returns of Athn-
basoa and MaeKenzie River districts,
and of plundering every fort along
the route. The company's people in
the Rod River district were t0 bo
turned out of their forts on all property, whether personal to themselves or belonging to the company,
confiscated."—(McTavish to Smith,
April Oth, 1878). Members of tho
Assembly were to be paid one pound
ten shillings per day—twelve shillings
to begin with, the rest at lho eom-
Slotion of said further arrangements,
larch 25th, 1870.—(The New Na-
tion, April 15th, 1870).
When the regulars, on tho morning
of August 24th, began their march
from Point Douglas through the deep
mud nnd a deluge of ruin, tu Fort
Garry, it was found that Riel and
his immediate followers had fled.
The Provisional Government had disappeared.    A vindicative Nemesis, it
Provisional Govt.  Breaks Down
The actual assumption of authori
ty by Canada in Rupert's Land was
delayed for moro than a week after
the arrival of the troops. The insurgents, with plausible logic, but
with a show of free-will not altogether convincing, claimed from 15th
July, 1870, to 24th August following
to have governed, on behalf of Canada, hor province of Manitoba and
her north-west territories. But
though the British regulars reached
the settlement on August 24th, 1870,
three duys before the Ontario volunteers, tho hurried departure of Riel
and O'Douoghue, in default of an
amnesty for the death of Scott, and
for tho prodigal distribution of Hudson's Bay stores, waa an indicntion
thut tho uttompts to preserve even
the semblnnee of provisional government hail  at last broken down.
Pending the arrival of A. G. Archibald us Lieutenant-Governor, the
administration on behalf of the
Compuny fell to Donntd A. Smith,
who, in co-operntion with Colonel
Wolseley, quickly restored confidence. To Governor Archibald, who
on his arrival by canoe on September
2nd, wur kindly but not enthusiastically received, foil the more delicate
task of directing the conflicting
forties put up within the settlement.
The regulars left Fort Garry on
tho morning after the Governor's arrival. It became evident that the
French wore distrustful nnd suspicious. Bishop Tnche's promises of
amnesty remained unfulfilled, despite a journey to Ontario and the
assurances to Riel of "friends,
sincere, devoted and powerful," and
of friendly troops "to aid us."
Seek Revenge For Murder
Tho Canndinn settlers and the Ontario volunteers, notwithstanding thc
most rigid military discipline, began
to threaten violence if the death of
Scott wero allowed to pass unavenged. When Gould, one of thoso implicated in tho death of Scott, appeared in tho village of Winnipeg,
lie was pursued to the river bnnk and
drowned before he could reach thc
other side. "Others," said Governor
Archibald, "wore so beaten and out-
raged that they feel as if they were
living in a state of slavery."
The flight of Riel, Lepine and O'-
wnff Bnln™7^ Canadians heard with
SS^FtSSH saws 8 swans
and seven members preaent. After
thc usual business was done, the retiring secretary-treasurer, Mrs. J. A.
Hamilton, read a very satisfactory
report of work done during the past
year, showing funds accumulated

present the hall is equipped with
card tables, benches, cards; all windows have shades, also two gasoline
lamps are in readiness; the Anglican
and United churches receive a yearly
donation, these being the two services held in Yahk; the sick are always visited and remembered with
flowers; the guild has responded to
many calls for help from outside
points, as well as helping several
needy cases in our own vicinity. The
Guild does a wonderful work in benefiting the social welfare of Yahk.
Thoy have dances, whist drives, social gatherings, etc., which are always well patronized. The election
of officers took place after the
treasurer's report was read. Mrs.
Lythgoe was re-eloctod president,
Mrs. Peterson vice-president, Mrs. L.
P, Williams secretary-treasurer, and
Mrs. Erskine convenor. A social
time was then spent ovor the teacups, during which Mrs, Peterson, on
behalf of tho members, presented
Mrs. Lythgoe with a handsome tray
as a token of appreciation for her
work during the past term In office.

Victoria, Jan. 17th—Thc 1927
session of B.C.'b. legislature already
ia well under way, with discussion of
the speech from the throne ln all
probability completed ere this appears. The document itself, supposedly summarizing government
legislation, was unpreccdcntcdly
meagre, promising no more thnn acts
to assist agriculture and safeguard
thc public in Its relations with loan
companies. This is by no means Indicative of a short or liarren session,
the regrettable uircumstnnce intruding that the government hns this year
chosen to outline its material plans
and proposals by ministerial pro
nouncements through the provincial
Liberal executive rather than to the
representatives of the people in parliament by traditional procedure—t
fact pertinently commented upon by
Hon. T. G. Coventry In a short but
cogent contribution to the opening
Odium Ta Retire
This was initiated by Brigadier-
General Odium and Ian Mackenzie,
second and fourth members for Vancouver respectively, neither of whom
commented upon his disappointed
cabinet ambitions. The former, seldom heard in the House, won distinction by the breadth and sanity of his
comments on public affairs and inci.
dentally disclaimed full agreement
with the administration to which he
accords a general support and intimated his intention not to seek parliamentary honors again. He emphasized particularly his disagreement
with the government course as to control of the liquor traffic, urging exclusive government sale nt practically
net cost, his suggestion being that
scandals in the trade and distribution
service will disappear if the element
of large profit-, public or private, is
eliminated. A current proposal to
vest complete authority to parliament
seemingly commends itself generally,
while exciting natural comment in
its tacit admission of the fallacy of
previous declarations by the government that Commissioner Davidson and
his tribunal have in the past been
unhampered by ministerial interference or dictation.
Proposals for co-operative action
in marketing orchard products fore*
shadowed by Hon. Mr. Barrow promise to be materially varied ere they
reach the House, his originally drastic
plan of compulsion exciting opposition. Several government members,
General Odium among them, have
set their faces against the dictatorial elements of the scheme.
Huie Loan For Road,
In the announced intention of the
Minister of Works to ask a $6,000,
000 credit for new road construction,
sundry members visualize an obvious
hint of an early appeal to the country,
the significance of which is, however,
considerably diminished by the admitted inability of the government
to secure any satisfactory concrete
proposals for banishment of the P.
G.E. spectre. Could any definite
policy be formulated with respect to
this white elephant of insatiable appetite, and endorsement therefore be
secured from the high Liberal councils, a decision to spring an election
during the current year would probably quickly be reached, in the hope
of catching Conservatism unprepared and before Hon. Dr. Tolmie, the
new leader, can complete the re-organization of his forces and formulation of policy on which he is now engaged.
While the speech from the throne
more than ever before Is remarkable
for Ita brevity and emptiness of disclosures aa to contemplated governmental action, the notice paper already ia unprecedentedly heavy with
Opposition material in question*
form, suggestive of pending assaults
from all angles and battling on every
front against maladministration in
virtually every government department and all part* of the province,
The session resultantly promises to
be both long and prolific of hot debate, in which the Conservative pha*
lanyx will be unusually aggressive.
A well attended nnd enthusiastic
organization meeting of the Kimlierley Caledonians held last week
augurs well for the future success
of the society.
Dr. Hanington was the unanimous
choice for president, and Mr. Neily
was appointed to the vice-president's
chair, and Mr. Colin Campbell to tho
joint office of secretary-treasurer.
The executive is comprlBOd of Mr.
D, Morrison, Mrs. Caldwell, Mr. Donaldson, Mrs. Holland and Mr. Alexander.
No little enthusiasm was shown
when it was proposed that a dance
nn,| slipper be held on the 25th of
this month, to celebrate Burns'
night. The arrangements lire being made by the executive.

The Scout troop held their regular
weekly meeting on Thursday evening. After the roll was called, the
following boys received their uniforms: Peter Kossen, Gilbert Parent
and Edward Kydd. This brings the
number of boys with uniforms up to
eight. Patrol Leaders Melntyre and
Trusler then put their respective patrols through fifteen minutes' hard
drilling. At eight o'clock work on
second class tests wns begun. Mr.
J. Bartle took charge of the Grizzly
patrol for instruction in First Aid,
and the Stags were taken in their
second class signalling test by the
Scoutmaster. The following boys
passed the teat: Gordon Trusler, Billy
Trusler, Gilbert Parent, Lome Robertson and Edward Kydd. While aU
the boys examined showed a good
knowledge of semaphore, special
mention must bc made of the sending
by Lome and the reading by Edward.
After the second class work, half nn
hour was spent playing various
games, which the boys entered into
in their usual whole-heater manner.
News of the death of A. L. Anderson on Thursday last, in Kimberley,

Cigars antl cigarettes were distributed to the crowd, and many toasts
were drank to the health and happiness of the young couple. Jap Walton, nlways in his element in a charivari, was the first one to enter the
house, and got an unexpected jolt
when he tasted the contents of his
glass, discovering it to be a straight
brew of "Malkin's Best." Doug
remedied the error, explaining that
he wns under the impression that
Jap  was  a   "teetotaller."
Too Well Remembered
"Did your aunt remember you

The mineral production of British
Columbia, which in l!i2.ri exceeded all
previous records by reaching a value
of $61,492,242, will surpass this
amount in 1926 by several million
dollars. It has been estimated by
J. D. Galloway, Provincial Mineralogist, that the mineral production of
British Columbin in 1920 will reach
307,718.000, which will be an increase over 1925 of 11 per cent.
This increase is due, according to Dr.
V. Dolmage of tbe Geological Survey
of Canada, more tn acceleration by
thr larger companies than the advent
of new producers. The Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company increased the capacity of their Sullivan
mill from .'1,000 to 4,*t(iO ions a day
and completed a new mill at Moyie
to treat the old dumps of tin- St.
Eugene mine. The Britannia Mining and Smelting Company increased
tlu* capacity of their mill from 8,000
to 3,300 tons a day. The Granby
Consolidated .Mining, Smelting and
Power Company has during the first
nine months of the year increased
their monthly production of copper
from 3,130,290 lbs. 'to 3,394,013
lbs. and lowered the cost from 9.240
pany in operating the large low-
grade copper deposits of Copper
Mountain, near Princeton. These
deposits contain several million tons
of developed ore consisting of nearly equal proportions of bornite and
cbaleopyrite rather finely disseminated in a highly aluminous and somewhat refractory gnngue. The mill is
now treating 2,000 tons of this ore
dally and producing a concentrate
carrying 30 pur cent, copper which
,s smelted by the Consolidated Mining
and Smelting Company at Trail. The
operations of the Allenby Copper
Company yielded a profit of $86,033
during the second quarter and a profit of $110,335 during the third quarter of 1926. In view of the many
failures to operate this property, the
present success is gratifying to all
concerned and a tribute to the management of the company.
Smelter Developments
Other developments in milling ond
! metallurgy are worthy of mention.
j Tbe Consolidated Mining and Smelt-
! ing Company have enlarged the ca-
\ paclty of their lead smelter from 350

The inquest convened at Fernie
into the death of Leung Quel, the
Chinese who succumbed to a wound
sustained during the insane outbreak
he caused nt Waldo on December 80,
has again been adjourned. The postponement of the investigation is due
to the fact that the two important
witnesses, Con. G. Sharpe and Frank
McNab, have not yet recovered
from more or less serious gunshot
wounds received by them while the
police were endeavoring to capture
the demented Chinese from his fortified retreat in a shack at Waldo. Dr.
D. Corsan, the medical attendant, is
also to testify at the proceedings, but
has been called to Vancouver.
Following the demise of Leung
Quel in ihe hospital, the inquiry into
the causes leading up to the death
was tnken up by Chief of Police,
Charles Anderson. The bur'al of
Leung Quci took place in St. Margaret's cemetery, Fernie, recently,
but it was carried out very quietly.
Arrangements weru made by fellow-
countrymen of deceased, and entirely
void of the customary oriental cere-,
mony in such cases. !
Constable Sharp, although able to
be out of the hospital, is still suffering painful effects from his wound,
and will not Im? able to resume his
duties for some considerable time yet.
Last week Constable and Mrs.
Sharpe journeyed to Elko, returning
the same evening with his car. In
speaking with a Herald representative Mr. Sharpe paid glowing tribute
to the action of his superior officer,
Segt. Greenwood, of Fernie, who got
right into the fray himself, not being
of the kind that directs the conflict
from tho rear. It is a matter of fact
that Sergt. Greenwood was the target
of many of the Chinaman's shots, it
being discovered afterwards that tht
roof was riddled with bullets in the
vicinity of where Sergt, Greenwood
stood while attempting to plant the
smoke generators down the chimney
—-the Ch'naman apparently heard
him above and did not like the idea
of hmi trespassing on his roof garden.
Constable Sharpe also give credit
to F. McNab for his assistance, hie
fearlessness and coolness under danger, especially b ing practically a vol-
| linker assistant, is worthy of recogni-
: tion.
| While Constable Sharpe was silent
[ :*s to Ivs own pnrt in the affair, it is
we'.l known thnt he never hesitated
for one minute in the carrying out of
what he deemed to be his duty, and
It is only by the merest chance that
he either did not share the same fate
as the Chinaman in the case or that
he is not maimed for life. It is with
pleasure that the Herald records actions of this kind on the part of those
entrusted with the public safety.
Vancouver, B.C.—The year now
ending will be marked by a record
production of silver, lead and zinc in
British Columbia. According to a
report from the Provincial Minister
of Mines the total output of silver
will run to 10,000,000 ounces; lead
to 260,000,000 pounds (against last
year's 235,000,000 and zinc to 135,-

98,500,000 lbs.

In which he told the story of his

The latest addition to Rocky
Mountain literature Is a new novel
from the pen of John Murray Gibbon and no one better knows the
Canadian Rockies and loves them
more wholeheartedly. "Eyes of a
Gypsy" is its title, and its best
scenes are laid in the clouds where
everlasting glaciers give place on the
rocky slopes to straggling forests.
It is a tale of human emotions and
although part of its action takes
place in N*ew York, it is Canadian in
spirit and its people are mostly the
sort of people whom Canadians will
recognize as to be met with in any
part of this country. Reviewers say
it is the best book Mr, Gibbon has
yet produced; it certainly holds the
attention from first to last, and if
one or two of its characters are
amnzingly unlike the ordinary run
of people, that makes the book all
the more thrilling. In any case it
is doing important work in helping
make Canada's scenic glories known
to the world.
Morley Roberts and J. Murray
Gibbon are friends to each other as
well as of the Rockies. They spent
some weeks together in the mountains this year during the annual
meeting of the Trail Riders. Roberts was renewing old acquaintances and re-visitlng scenes he had
not seen for forty years. New books
will no doubt later come from each

Victoria, B.C.—BritUh Columbia's
hasic industries will have an output
this year valued at considerably more
than a quarter of a billion dollars.
This represents an enormous increase
over the figure of five or ten years
ago and indicates that industrial progress in Canada's Pacific coast province is maintaining an almost phenomenal stride. The estimate of the
value of the year's production by industries is as follows:—Lumbering
and related forest industries, 880.-
000,000; mining, $70,000,000; agriculture, $70,000,000; fisheries, $24,-
000,000; and pulp and paper, $18,-
000,000. In ten years there has been
an increase of 160 per cent, in the
lumber industry; manufacturing has
advanced 214 per cent.; the increase
in the volume of lumber export has
been 900 per cent.

Expert  Piano Tuner
of Vancouver, B.C., writes tbat owing to a superior record business of
two months in Nelson, and ulso
throughout his entire field of work,
which is strong evidence of superior
ability and work npprccinted, and
regrets being late in visiting Crnnbrook and Kimberley. He intends in
the future to drop some of the smaller pluces. so that he can mnke his
visits more regularly. He is now in
Trail, and will be in Cranbrook sometime during February.
Did you ever consider that superior
tuning, also action and tone regulating, means that you have a superior
piano? Some people don't, and will
employ most anyone claiming to be
a tuner—but watch your piano deteriorating. 51
