First   Rod   and   Gun   Club
Banquet Proves Success
Beyond Expectations
The first annual banquet of the
Rod nnd Gun Club of Crnnbrook fa
now a matter of history, nnd even if
H. G. Wells were relating it, we believe he would say "She wns a benr."
Those acquainted with tho record of
tho Rod nnd Gun for bringing to
safe hnrbor any effort upon which
they embark, went to the banquet
expecting much, and it is safe to say
that even these were agreeably surprised; the others were literally taken
by storm as they came to realize
whnt real hosts the boys of the reel
nnd trigger nctunlly were. Those
directly responsible for thc staging
of the big event hnve every reason
to feel satisfied with nnd proud of
their efforts, as the guests were not
nt all backward in expressing what
was doubtless their sincere appreciation thereof.
Not at all the least pleasing feature of the big function was the international flavor given to it by the
presence of about a dozen members
from the Bonners Ferry Rod and
Gun Club. The "Welcome to our
guests from Idaho," which headed
the well got up menu, was but one
of the many evidences given to our
cousins from south of "49" that they
had fallen among friends, while they
on the other hand, through their
words of appreciation, and in the
manner in which they accepted the
hospitality, as well ns their signified
intention of reciprocation, did much
to wipe out even thc imaginary line
which separates thc two great English spcuking peoples on thc North
American continent. If for nothing
more than the extent to which this
getting together fostered such relations, it was well worth while, but
when it ia considered that it won for
them many local supporters, the Rod
and Gun Club should feel assured
that the game was certainly worth
the candle. The only fly in the ointment, so far ns those responsible for
the staging of the big affair are concerned, is thc high mark that they
hnve set for other committees to
equal or surpass.
Promptly nt seven-thirty the three
large banquet tables were filled with
their quota of 150 gootl fellows,
representing every town nnd city
from Fernie lo Sirdar, and from Kimberley to Kingsgate. After "0
Canada" hnd been sung, they proceeded to appease the raving nppe-
iites at once created by the sight of
the linked Kootenny Trout nnd the
platter after platter of tempting
slices of sheep, goat or venison.
Talk nbout your schoolboy capacity,
there was not a mother's fair-haired
sou that ever tucked in the wny that
assemblage did] even the sight of 60
others wailing for their turn to be
seated did not cause nny reduction
of Uie bug limit. While the Rod nnd
Gun Club vera handed mnny bouquets
which they rightly deserved, we nre
sure they will not begrdude passing some of them to their esteemed
fellow member, Mr. A. Hurry, for
the manner in which he performed
the herculenn task of entering to 210
people. Ile and his efficient stnlf
are to be complimented.
The advantage of the improvements to the hall was readily seen;
without them no such successful
Bpnad would have been possible. The
K. P.'s men should now be satisfied
with their investment.
At 8t4B the toastmnsler, President
Bi T. Cooper, called for the toast to
the King, which wns given its appropriate response. As chairman,
Mr. Cooper delivered a pleusing
speech. After expressing the appreciation of the Rod and Gun Club
for the support uccorded them in thc
staging of the first annual banquet,
he suid thut he felt thut the presence
of such a largo number of business
men and members of service clubs
mnde them justified in feeling that
thoir efforts were meeting with approval, and that the work thut had
been done in the past had not been
in vain. The popular president's recounting of the difficulty encountered
in thc providing of the "Gime"
(game) for the occasion convulsed
hts hearers and set tho tempo, as it
wore, for tho rest of the evening,
"con unimnto" bcing most appropriate.
In welcoming tho guests from tho
other aide, tho speaker said ho foil
tt hla doty at that time to pay trib
ute to one who wus one of their party
who on the occasion of their lust visit
had made such u wonderful appeal
for the conservation of the wild life
of the country. While personally regretting the loss of "Dad" Heldman,
he felt also that the wild animals had
lost their best friend and advocate
when he crossed thc Great Divide.
In extending welcome to the
guests, His Worship Muyor Roberts
extended a speciul welcome to the
friends from Idaho, stating that he
wus only too pleased to do anything
to foster the admirable spirit that
had existed between the .States and
Canada for the last 100 years. That
his sentiments were concurred with
by the Canadians assembled was unmistakably shown by the applause
that greeted his remarks.
As one responding for the guests,
Mr. M. Snmmas, of Bonnerfl Ferry,
expressed his keen appreciation of
the warm welcome given them. Such
meetings made for better feelings
and the tightening of the bonds of
amity und fellowship that existed between the two countrys, which they
as fellow sportsmen represented.
Such cordiality tended to obliterate
any line between their respective
countries. *
In seconding the response Mr.
Hanson of Bonners* Ferry was particularly happy, mingling with his
expressions of appreciation several
interesting stories.
Mr. Frank Mursh was in particularly fine voice in his rendering of
"Sunrise and You, ond he responned
to vociferous applause with a very
pleasing encore.
In responding for the Board of
Trade nnd the Retail Merchants' Association, Mr. J. P. Fink paid tribute to thc Rod and Gun Club in
referring to it us an organization that
could draw from other districts and
particularly from the United States
such a large number of men and
unite them in such a brotherhood as
wns seen there thnt night. It wns
indeed conducive to world peace, an
pbjeot much to be desired, no matter
whnt might be thc medium. The
ipeftker then gave nn interesting resume of the benefits derived from
tourist traffic through Crnnbrook, it
being one of the avenues of endeavor
of the Hoard of Trade. From a dollar ami cents estimation of the value
of the Rod nnd Gun Club Mr. Fink
bowed bow in fishing tackle alone
ivor $2600 hnd been left with the
merchants. Without the hatchery
this amount would hove been about
ne third. On behulf of the asso-
latlons he represented he extended
a hearty welcome to the visitors and
trusted that they would take away
as good feeling as was held towards
Judging from the manner in which
the banjo solos of Mr. Allen
Graham were received one would
have thought that thc majority of
the company were from many miles
below the 49th parallel, rnthcr than
above. They were thoroughly enjoyed.
In responding for tho Fish and
Gome of North America Messrs.
Chas. Spoor nml W. Reid of Bonner's Ferry and State Game Warden
E, R. Thomas of Boise, Idaho, made
valuable contributions to the speeches
of thc evening. Mr. Spoor referred
to the feeling of goodwill thnt existed between thc two countries of
which they were citizens, and called
upon his fellow banquetters to support the Rod and Gun Club. In referring to the passing of Dad Heldman und his work ho felt he would
be voicing what might be his parting
wish in asking them to "Carry on."
Mr. W. Reid, Assessor of Bonner's
Ferry left nothing to be surmised
when it cnme to indicating to what
extent he wns pleased with the receptions thnt the Cranbrook Boys
tendered thc contingent from the
south country. If the Rod and Gun
boys feel a little bit conceited it is
his fault, not theirs. Among such a
bunch of fellows the possibility of
putting anything over was unlimited
was Mr. Reid'g opinion.
Thut State Game Warden E. R.
Thomas of Boise had driven 700
miles to Bonner's Ferry in order to
join the contingent was his evidence
that he was desirous of getting up
to the annual meeting of the local
club. Mr. Thomas gave some valuable information re the operation of
the game laws and tho work of the
department of which he was an official. He threw out many suggestions whereby tho two associations

On Monday^evening at the regular
session of Key City Lodge, I.O.O.F.,
an interesting function was carried
out, nt which recognition was made
of the long connection of two respected members of the lodge, with thfl
order, by the presentation of veterans' jewels. Bro. T. S. Gill was given
a jewel, which will show his connection with Odd Fellowship hus extended over u period of thirty-five years,
his actual membership, us a matter
of fact, dating back to 1880, or a
period of thirty-nine years. Bro. Dr.
F. W. Green wns also the recipient
of a jewel for twenty-five years'
continuous connection with the order,
having joined Key City Lodge almost
at its inception.
The jewels were pinned on the
veteran members by Bro. W. D. Gilroy, P.G., the District Deputy Grand
Master, with a few appropriate remarks, and after the two members
had been introduced by the Noble
Grand. There was a very good attendance of members at the meeting.
Bro. GUI, in acknowledging his
jewel, gave some interesting recollections of hig curly days in thc order, joining at Calgary in the early
days of railroading in the west, when
Calgary was a very small place indeed. Dr. Green ulso suitably acknowledged his gift.
The business session was followed
by a social und smoker, when u number of musicul pieces und short
speeches were given, nnd listened to
with much enjoyment. Those contributing to the progrnm at this time
were Bros. A. Bell, I. Hannah nnd
Walter Hull, who sung, and Bro. T.
Drew, who gave a recitation. Short
addresses, appropriate to the occasion, were also given by Bro. W. D.
Gilroy, P.G., Bro. J. II. Cameron,
P.G., Bro. E. H. McPhee, P.G., Bro.
F. G. Morris, P.G., Bro. R. P. Moffatt, P.G., nnd Bro. Curl Gill, of Kimberley.

Returns From Poppy Sale
While all the returns are not yet
in from different parte °t the district, it is understood thut thc G.W.
V.A. took in nbout three hundred
and fifty dollars from the sole of the
commemorative poppy replicas during the armistice and Thanksgiving
week-end. The aid of willing help-
erg was enlisted in thc outside places
and they responded well, ond the G.
W.V.A. is deeply appreciutive of the
help given them in thi.s cause. Proceeds from tho sale of poppies goes
to the assistance of disabled veterans

During the evening, also, the various wheels of fortune did a record
business. Possibly the most activity
was around the turkey table, where
Frank Guimont and Joe Schell were
giving away fine turkey birds for
twenty-five cents.
As a result of the efforts of the
ladies, and the sale of turkeys, the
sum of $1300 will be made. According to information given out it
was the most successful bazaar yet
held by the church.
Christmas Store Windows
Most of the store windows are already putting on a Christmastide appearance. It is understood that most
of the merchants have been conservative in buying, and it Is therefore
advisable for intending purchasers to
make their selections early in order
to avoid disappointment, as undoubtedly the demand will be greater than
was anticipated when the goods were
bought by the merchants, and it is

from Fernie were in attendance to
assist in thc appointment of a delegate from this section to the unity
meeting of the veteran bodies, which
is to tuke plnce in Winnipeg cr Port

Four delegates were present from

Kootenay Telephone Linei to
Have New Exchange Working Very Shortly
OUTLAY OF $15,000
It was announced in the last issue
of the Kimberley Press thnt the
telephone system being Installed by
the Kootenay Telephone Lines Ltd.,
to serve the town of Kimberley,
will be ready for service nbout the
end of the present month. Intending subscribers are requested to apply to the head office of the company in Cranbrook for connection
with the system, ond for the installation of their phones. The rates to
be charged are the same np in force
at Cranbrook, nnd there is in addition nn initial installation charge.
The company announces that there
will be a sixteen hour sen-ice for the
present, and during thc present winter only the townsite area of Kimberley proper can be served, with a capacity of nbout a hundred phones.
Two phones mny nlso be operated ut
Chapman Camp on a single line, but
it will not be possible to extend u
general sen-ice to that urea nt pro-
ent, nor is it likely there will be any
service to McDougell Heights or
Blarchmont Park this season, though
provision may be made for connection with the hosptinl.
The outlay required to put in this
system is in the neighborhood of
$15,000, it is authoritatively stated.
If the development of the business
warrants it there is no question but
that the telephone company will
prove equal to the situation, and
make extensions as they are called
With the installation of the system
in Kimberley there will be a considerable improvement in the long distance connection between that point
and Cranbrook, and there will be two
lines in use for this purpose, a
through copper circuit, and an iron
circuit on which will be put a few
intermediate phones. All the Kimberley phones in the future will be
connected with the exchange there,
thus leaving the lines between the
two places free for long ditance connections.
While the service offered is not
perhaps all that the people of Kimberley would like, it is a long step
in the right direction, and will doubtless mean the beginning of bigger
developments ir. this direction.
With many tokens of respect from
those who had come to know him, und
had been associated with him in his
three years or so of residence here,
thc- body of the late Willard J. Warren was taken to the station on Sunday afternoon, and put on board the
eastbound train, to be taken back to
Kensington, Prince Edward Island,
his former home.
The late Mr. Warren, whose death
wu announced last week, had taken
a prominent part in carrying on the
work connected with the establishment and the conduct of the silver
fox farm here, being undoubtedly
the pioneer in the industry here.
Whenever his heolth permitted he

Athletic Activities at Kimberley
and Finances Are Reported On
The annual meeting of the Kimberley Amateur Athletic Association wag
held on Thursday evening of last
week, E, S. Shannon, president, was
in the chair, and the business was
recorded by Fred Willis, Secretary.
There was a large attendance of
those interested In sport in thnt place.
The first business wns the reading
nnd adoption of the minutes of the
last meeting, ami also of the secretary's general report and financial
E. S. Shannon gave nn address on
the past season's work nnd wns followed by E. G. Montgomery, who
stated that gymnasiums will be built
nt each camp at nn early dale.
A hearty vote of thanks wns tendered the president and .secretary for
the excellent work done during the
past season.
G.  Smart, representing Lacrosse,
key was very successful and will be
the means of bringing up a lot of
useful players if the boys are properly encouraged. The Junior Baseball
also bad a good season, but unfortunately losing out in the finals with
Crunbrook for Cups and Medals.
LACROSSE—The Associntion was
not able to do much for this brunch
of sport this yeur, und the Lacrosse
supporters should try and improve
their standing by having a better arrangement with outside teams than
wus worked out this yeur, if they nre
to continue this brunch of sport.
SKATING RINK—This shows »
small loss und this could bc met, 1
think, if u better arrangement was
made in regard to handling skating
tickets. The Ice Carnival held was
very successful.
I might mention that none of the
clubs paid anything in the nature of
ufliliation fees to the Association dur-
At noon on Friday last, Mr.
Parke, while working on the new
telephone exchange cable at Kimberley, met with a serious accident.
Working on a platform suspended
above the street the supporting
cable snapped and caused him to fall
heavily to the ground.
Doctors Hanington and Davies
were immediately on the spot und
the unfortunate man wos rushed to
McDougall Heights hospital where
he will receive every attention.
spoke  regarding  thi.s line  of sport'ing the yeur,  and apart from  the
und stated thul although it was hard
work to revive thi.s branch they had
been fairly successful anil were the
holders of the league trophy, and also
the Cammel-Laiid Cup, but the finances of tho club were very low, in
fact showed a considerable deficit.
W. Kilgour represented this
branch of sport, and spoke on the
organization of the Football League
in Kimberley, stating each team had
come out successfully aa regards finances and the deficit on the Blaylock Cup game would be tuken care
of very shortly.
W. B. Caldwell spoke on the need
of u covered rink in Kimberley ns
tbe town wag now large enough to
support one. The hockey season
bust year had been very successful
in every way, and they were looking
forward to an equally good winter
this year.
There being no representative of
baseball present C. G. Duhlgren
spoke on the needs of getting this
branch of sport cleared of its old
debts as soon as possible.
Junior Sports
C. W. Gough, representing the
junior hockey and baseball teams
stated that they had a good senson
and although the baseball was a little
behind he was working up some vory
good material. He appealed for assistance in this important work, and
mentioned that the Elks in Kimberley were going to tuke the junior
hockey under their wing, if one
could express it that way, and would
give them every encouragement,
Dominion Day Celcbraion
A. A. Ward spoke on this subject
nnd stated that us far as the sports
were concerned they went off vory
successfully, and the grounds had
been put into very good shape. The
football ground still needed soma attention  though.
The following officers were elected
for the ensuing yeur:
Hon. Pres E. G. Montgomery
Pres  A. R. Lilly
Vice.-Pres  E. S. Shannon
Sec.-Trens.,   Fred Willis
Executive—S. R. Smith, Sullivan
Mine; A. A. Ward, Tunnel; W. B.
Caldwell, Kimberley; D. Clark, Chapman.
Considerable discussion arose regarding financial matters and it was
finally decided to issue membership
tickets in the Association for $1.00
each. This money to be used chiefly for junior sports nnd to haw a
fund to use in case of emergency.
The ticket would entitle the holder
to vote at any meeting of the Association, but would not curry any
special privileges or admittance to
games, etc.
The meeting wns then adjourned.
Following is the annual report and
financial statement presented nt the
meeting of the Kimberley Amateur
Athletic Association lust week by the
secretnry treasurer, F. Willis:
BASEBALL—This note for $220
wn8 taken over by the Association to
clear the Bank of Montreal, nnd together with the item $75.45 wns
used to pay local debts to clear up
the aftermath of the previous season.
HOCKEY—The Hockey Club were
successful in meeting nil obligations
as far as the Association was concerned, nnd, I believe, under their
management, had n successful senson
FOOTBALL—The Football League
is endeavoring to raise funds to meet
the deficit in the guarantee paid to
Trail, and will, 1 believe, in the neur
future meet this amount. They nro
to be congratulated on winning the
Blaylock Cup from the Enst Kootenny League.
CURLING—The Association was
able to work in with the Curling Club
us regards ice, nnd nlso huve the
honor of having their name on one
of the Selkirk Curling Association
Trophies, the Cup being given by Mr.
Blaylock through this body.
JUNIOR sports—The Association endeavored, during tbe year, to i
foster sport among tho juniors, both
boys and girls, and are glad to be
able to announce that the Junior Hoc-
Hockey Club and one small payment
by the Football Club, no ground rents
were turned in. This is very unsatisfactory, as the individual clubs should
be self-supporting, and should be prepared to pay their way. The Association went to great expense on
the grounds this year, over $500.00
being expended in this way.
The note for $220.00 on account
of baseball has still to bc met at the
bank, and unless the committee that
had this matter in hand early in the
year get busy, this Association will
have to pay it, which is not very
satisfactory under the circumstances.
The attendance at the First of
July fell off badly this year and,
therefore, the day was a bad one financially, although from every other
point of view it was a success, and
this Association hopes the next celebration will be better in every way,
which it will bc if given the real
hard work attaching to the running
of such an affair.
There arc a large number of Challenge cups under the control of the
Association which are held for the
present year, as follows:
Western   Grocers   Baseball   Challenge Cup—Kimberley Baseball Club.
Giant Powder Football Challenge
Cup—Kimberley Football Club,
Cammell Laird Lacrosse Challenge
Cup—Kimberley Lacrosse Club.
Crunbrook Brewing Tug-of-War
Challenge Cup—Tunnel Tug-of-Wnr
P. Burns & Co. Junior Hockey
Challenge Cup—Kimberley Juniors,
K.A.A.A. Curling Challenge Cup—
L. Clnpp's Rink, Cranbrook.
In conclusion, I wish, on behalf of
the Association, to thank everyone
who so ably assisted them in carrying
on during thc year and hope the same
support will bc given our successors
in office.
I remain.
Yours sincerely,

At the annual meeting of the
Kimberley Hockey Club held lnst
Thursday evening, it was decided,
among other things, to enter a Kimberley tenm in the Intermediate
series of the B.C. Amateur Hockey
Association this winter. This will
probably mean thnt Kimberley nnd
Fernie will piny off for the right to
meet the winners in West Kootenny
It wus decided to have the secretnry
write the officials at the coast at
onco und usk them to arrange that
the play-off between the East und
West Kootenny tennis this winter be
held in Crunbrook, that is, of course,
if Kimberley or Cranbrook won out
I from Fernie. Until Kimberley gels
I u covered rink it will bc impossible
lo have uny final games played in
that town. A Kimberley locul league
of three or four teama will be seen
in action this winter, it being likely
that the Concentrator, Gyros und the
Tunnel will enter teams, and it wus
decided to have thc officials und executive of the Kimberley Hockey Club
govern this city league.
The C.M. & S. Co. have again
kindly agreed to put the skating
rinks in shape in all three cumps.
The following officers were elected:
Hon. Pres. —E. G. Montgomery,

From Flagship to Management
-nl Muiim-tiT
When the S.S. Empress of Scotland, flagship of (lie Canadian
Pacific Atlantic fleet, reached Southampton on her last trip under tho
command of Capt. James Gillies,
C.B.E., who had been appointed
general manager of the Canadian
Pacific Steamships in succession
to the late Sir Thomas Fisher,
an interesting presentation was made
to the new general manager. It took
the form of a handsome canteen of
cutlery and silver suitably inscribed,
from the entire ship's company. A
specially bound volume, printed on
the Empress and containing the names
of those who sailed under his lust
command was also given to Capt.
Gillies. His little daughter, Mavis,
was not forgotten by the crew and
they made her u present of u gold
wrist watch. Stan-Captain U. W.
Stuart, V.C..D.S.O..U.N.K., mude
the presentation.
Captain Gillies bus had n distinguished career at sea both with the
Allan Line nnd the Canadian Pacific. He is very woll known in Canada
having sailed between Quebec ports und overseas for many years. The ships
on which ho has served and commanded include the Mont royal, Monmouth, Mount Temple, Montezuma, Keewatin, Luke Michigan, lluthmin,
Lake Manitoba, Milwaukee, Tunisian, Grampian, Missiiuubie, Metuguma,
Mothuen, Melita, Victoria and Empress of Scotland.
More Trees for the Prairies
It has
been said that up to the
the prairie farmer has
lived in a house rather than a home.
Working on the theory that in home-
building, the eye must be fed as well
as the stomach, the Canadian Forestry Association some six years ago
instituted a campaign to beautify
prairie farms by tree-planting.
Operating what was called a tree-
planting car .throughout the prairie
provinces was one of the methods
adopted by the Association to make
actual the embellishment of the
farms. The car has covered over 7,000
miles of prairie railway this season,
most of this on C.P.R. Lines, its
occupants have given audiences to
over 58,500 persons and held 438
public meetings in 146 communities.
Seedlings, cuttings and transplants
have been distributed in the car's
wake as a result, of these activities,
and an ofHcial of the Association was
able to state that in nil the car's
travels, a single farmer who had
migrated from u well-treed farm was
yet to be encounur id. In his mind
the secret of stabilize u population on
the prairies is closely identified with
The entire enterprize is maintained
as a non-government nnd non-commercial undertaking, financial support coming chiefly from agricultural
societies, the railway corporations,
grain companies and individuals like

The Official Ride of the Trail Riders of the Canadian Rockies, commenced
this year on the morning of August 8th and ended at Wapta Camp on the
night of the tenth. Over a hundred members participated. They rode across
country between Marble Canyon, on the Banff-Windermere Highway, to the
Bungalow Camp at Lake Wapta.
The Riders, among them a number of prominent society people, scientists
and artists, all travelling on horse-back, blazed a new passage across the
Wolverine Plateau. Six countries were represented: Canada, the United
States, Australia, France, the West Indies and England. The artists, of
whom there were six, made sketched of the virgin Bcenery along the route
of the newly discovered trail.
Seven Indians were in the party, six being Kootenays under Chief Louis
Arbel, while the Beventh was Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance who gave a
lecture on the Indian Races of Canada to the Canadian Club of Montreal
during the winter, and Ib rapidly becoming famous as ah authority upon
Indian affairs.
Thc artists included Leonard Richmond, R.B.A., and A. L. Lelghton of
England; Carl Rungius, Belmore Browne and Richard M. Klmbel, of New
York, and R. Pulenske of Chicago. Paris was represented by the Due do
Nemours, who recently purchased a ranch near Calgary.
ThiB was the second annual Ride and Pqw-pow of the organization. On
the morning of August tho eighth, motor *m conveyed the Riders from
Lake Louise nnd Banff to the point of departuro on the Banff-Windermere
Highway. There guides and horses were in readiness and the purty immediately ununited and tho Ride commenced. The trail led up Tumbling
Creek, past Tumbling Glacier and on the Wolverine Plateau where lunch was
'served . Tho ride then proceeded along the Plateau with the Wolverine
Palisades, Mount Helmet and the Woshmawanta Icefield and Waterfalls on
thc left, giving the riders a view of tho Ten Peaks on thc right.
Thut night cump wus pitched on the Goodsir Plateau and before retiring
thc campers gathered around the file for the usual sing-song, in the shadow
of tho cliff which rises sheer six thousand, five hundred feet above its valley.
On the second day the ride led down to Goodsii Creek and up McArthur
Creek, past Luke McArthur. That night was spent of the shores of Lake
O'Hara, the camp there being placed at the disposal of tho Trail Riders by
the Alpine Club of Canada. The day ended again with a sing-song.   •
On the third day, August 10th, tne final ride was made from Lake O'Hara
to Wapta Lake, whero the expedition was concluded with a Pow-wow, singsong nnd pale-face dance at Tipi Camp. It is expected that another ride of a
similar nature will take place next year as the undertaking impressed those
who took part as one of the most enjoyable out ting* they nave experienced.
Not only docs the Ride provide an uncommonly pleasant holiday for sportsmen from Canada and thc United States, but It also serves the excellent
purpose of making the scenery and the fishing and hunting facilities of the
Rockies known abroad.   ** Thursday, November 19, 1925

The members of the Lumberton
Ladies' Aid Society held their regular monthly meeting the first Thursday in this month. Fourteen members of the Society were present and
a very profitable meeting was enjoyed. The treasurer's report for the
past year was rend and approved, and
showed that the organization hud enjoyed a very prosperous year. The
showing mnae Is indeed one of which
the ladies have ample reason to be
proud. The Society has not been in
operation much over the two year
period, and much good has been accomplished throughout the community in more than just a social way.
Every enterprise which bus come up
in Lumborton of interest to all the
people has usually been supported by
the ladies' organization, when help
WOfl needed, and in the majority of
eases the assistance was always volunteered. The following is the financial report for the past fiscal |

very well after the boat was launch-

No score, rubber game. Z dealt and bid
four spades (a fine preemptive bid, by
thc way). A doubled, Y passed and B
bill five hearts. 7. and A now passed ami
Y doubled. When oil passed, whatshould
7. have Opened? This hand offers an excellent example of the pro|>cr Opening
lead after a double. If a player double*
after his partner has made a bid, he expects his part ner to lead the suit he has
hid. If a player has made a bid of his
own and latcr*doubles, he expects his
partner to lead that suit. In this example hand, Z has hid four spades and his
partner, Y, has doubled five hearts. Under these conditions, Z should have
opened his are of spades, This opening
would have set the contract one trick.
Y had a singleton spade and doubled
with the expectation of a spade opening, Z, however, thought of none of
these very good reasons for a spade
opening, lie ojiennl the king of clubs
and An just made their bid nnd thus
scored game nnd rubber. This hand is a
fine example so study it over carefully.
The following is another fine example:
Hearts —5

No score, rubber game. Z dealt and bid
four hearts. A bid five diamonds and
•11 passed. Y opened the king of spades
and B'a hand, the dummy's in this in-
,  'What sort of hand did Z have to
justify a four heart bid? If he had
wanted a heart lead, he probably would
have doubled. His four heart bid probably consists of at least eight hearts
with four honors and very little side
strength. lie also probably nas a single*
ton spade and bid four hearts in the
hope of shutting out a spade bid. Therefore, my best play is to lead the ace of
spades and hope that Z can trump the
third round of spades." If Y haa followed this line of reasoning, he would
have set the contract one trick. He
failed to do so, however, and led a
heart at trick two, which A trumped.
A then led trumps and scored game and
rubber, losing only two spade tricks.
This is another hand thst should be
carefully noted.

one heart, A and V passed and B bid
one spade. Z and A passed and Y bid
two hearts. The final bid was four
spades Hue to the fact that V raised the
heart bid twice more. He also doubled
four spades; What should Z open? This
hand is similar to thc first one in that Z
has bid a suit nnd his partner Y hat
doubled. I 'iid'T thc rule set down in the
analysis of that hand, Y certainly es-
pected a heart lead by Z. Irrespective
of that fact, however, 7. should have led
a heart in the endeavor to set up a trick
in that suit before he lost his reentry in
clubs. Instead of doing so, however. Z
opened the ace of clubs and then led
the four, hoping as he said, for a ruff.
This lead gave AB a game that they
couldn't have scored if Z had opened
the king of hearts. Note all three of
these hands very carefully for they are
typical hands and involve points thnt
come up in every session of play.

will go by the experience of past years, particularly
that of last year, when bitter winter set in just
before thc shopping season, and remained with us
till just after Christmas, so tbat many people were
not able to do the shopping for their Christmas
remembrances they desired. Will the shopping
public ever leam that il is dangerous to take
chances with the weather man? Shop early, while
the weather is good, and while the selections arc
good. Such a policy is in the hest interests of
everyone, besides relieving purchaser and merchant
alike of a load of last minute worries.

As for Mr. 0. G. McGeer, he ia to be congratulated upon the showing he made. He put up a strong
buttle, but it was a battle in which he should never hnve
appeared. Of all men in Britiah Columbia, he is most
conversant with tbe details of the freight rates question.
He knows Us history from beginning to end. He knows
that whatever differences there may be with regard to
tactics, on the main issue there is no division among the
people of British Columbia. He knew from the beginning that the freight rates question was not a party
question, and he knew the danger of making it a political
football. But he let his ambitions override his better
judgment. As counsel for British Columbia, Mr. McGeer was fully compensated for the work he did on the
various freight rates csaes, and British Columbians of
all parties joined in giving him support and in paying his
bill. Yet, in offering himself as a candidate, he not
only sought payment a second time, but he insinuated
that half his employers were cither indifferent or
actually dishonest, and by throwing the case into the
political field while it waa still very much sub judice,
he jeopardized our chances of success. Mr McGeer is
the lust man who should have been a party to a freight
rates fight in this city, and the votes of the citizens yesterday told him so.
We have nothing against Mr. McGeer's ambitions
to occupy a seat in Parliament. Such ambitions are
quite laudable, and some day, when he has finished his
freight rates job, he may achieve them, but not, we hope,
by following such methods as those of which the people
of Vancouver Centre expressed their disapproval.—Vancouver Province. —rAi $\v£-

Victoria, B.C., Nov. ICth.—Revelation i.f one of tlio must extraordinary
instances of unconstitutional financing ever practised by any government
was the oulstaniling feature of the
second week of tho current session
of the B. C. Legislature. The facts
were elicited by Mr. It. II. Foolcy,
opposition leader, iu the Public Ac-
founts Committee, directly out of tho
mouths of Premier Oliver, Hon. Dr.
Vt. H. Sutherland, Minister of Public
Works, Patrick Philip, his deputy
minister, and other officials. - The
basic fact is that the government lias
committed the public treasury to an
expenditure of $1,2117,000, for which
the legislature has given it no authority. Of this sum $500,01)0 has
actually been spent, the sum having
been raised hy special warrants from
the Lieutenant-Governor, a proceeding thnt is legal in case of war or
other unforseen disaster or emergency, The expenditures in question
were incurred on construction of the
University of B, C, and opposition
members are asking liy what process
of reasoning this undertaking could
described as of an emergency character.
+   +   +
A summary of the facts elicited
by the committee in sworn evidence
shows that the legislature had authorized the government to raise $8,-
000,000 by loan for university construction.
At the beginning of the session of
1024 the fund of $2,030,000 realized
on the bond issue stood committed
for $2,008,IK:., an excess of $112,000 j
nt that time, yet Premier Oliver told
the committee he felt justified in
concluding from the public works department memo alone that no legislation to provide further funds for
the university WM required at the
102H session, lie admitted that he
knew additional lands department
work was going on.
+   +   +
Dr. .Sutherland testified that he
found out there was an overcommitment of $289,000 in February,
1925. Further investigation raised
the total to $000,000, he said. A
memorandum laid before the Premier
on June 8th showed the total sum
required by that time to complete the
university project as $1,297,071.
In this memorandum the Comptroller reminded the Executive that
tho two memos of Oct. 29 and Nov.
0 referred to above had showed the
fact of overcommitment at that time,
and that the facts were before the
cabinet during the session of 1924.
Yet Premier Oliver in his evidence
declared that he was first made aware
of the overcommitment in Mny, when
he found on his desk a draft order-
in■couneii asking for a special warrant for $860,000 for university pur
+   +   +
Further payments fell due in October nfter the $500,000 raised by
special warrants had been used up.
One bill for $112,000 and another
for $122,000 were submitted by the
E. J. Ryan Contracting Co. during
that month.
To assist the contractor to finance
these claims which the government
had no authority of any kind to pay,
Premier Oliver wrote letters to the
Kyan Co. assuring the contractor
that the money would be paid with
nterest ut 7 per cent as soon as the
Legislature authorized raising of further funds, which he calmly assured
the contractor would be within three
months. Premier Oliver promised
that the sums would be placed to
the Ryan account in the Royal Bank.
These revelations, first of unauthorized overcommitment of public
funds, second the special warrants
j being used for a purpose which can
1 hardly be described as un emergency,
. and third of the government pledging the legislature to vote certain
sums of money before the members
have even assembled nre serious
-i -h +
The seriousness of the situation is
complicated by the position of Attorney-General Manson, who has
been absent from the house for four
of the eight days during which the
legislature sat in the first two weeks.
The occasion of his absence was the
continued repetition of evidence
the assize court at Vancouver tending to implicate him in guilty knowledge or participation in the ubduc-
tion of Wong Sing, arising from thc
Janet Smith tragedy.
Practically no progress in legislation has been made by tbe govern
ment, and little prospect for the next
week is held out. The debate on the
address is still dragging on because
the government has no other business
to luy before the members, being
too much concerned with the various
charges it is facing.
+ H- +
Hon. Dr. J. D. MacLean, minister
of finance and education, the only
minister to speak so far, had only
one idea about the survey, he approved every recommendation calling
for increased expenditures and increased taxation. He held out no
hope of reduction in income or personal property tax, and expressed
himself as iu favor of extending the
income tax until every person, no
matter how smull his or her earnings,
is paying at least a one per cent
rate. Other Liberal members who
hnve spoken have made suggestions
of only one thing, further expenditures on the Pacific Greut Eastern

High School Sale
In aid of their funds to carry on
their athletics during the year, and
to start them out in this direction,
the pupils of the high school held a
sale of afternoon ten, candy, etc., nt
the Parish Hall last Saturduy afternoon, winding up the event with an
informal dance. It was a very successful event, and the idea seems a
happy one, providing n legitimate
channel for raising some funds for
activities that no high school can be
without, but which always seem difficult to finance nnd for which general support in thc community seems
difficult to enlist.

MacKenzie's pond and other sheets
of ice were popular spots during the

'hold, and for a time skates and hockey sticks were in use quite freely.
The softer weather of the past few

ice shortly, however, nnd the probabilities are now that the ice enthusiasts will have to wait a little
longer for the realization of their
hopes for good skating ice.

One of the pleasant features of

it brought out so many of the old
timers in the district, who arc now
seen at public functions all too seldom. They were there in force on
Monday, from all parts of the district, and many old friendships were
renewed across the festive board, the
occasion being made all the more
pleasant by the knowledge that the
dinner itself was as near hundred per
cent East Kootenay as it was possible to make it.

assistance of Rotary whenever they
felt inclined to call upon them.

In proposing a toast to the Rod and
Gun Club, Superintendent T. R. Flett
first extended a cordial welcome to
the guests trom the surrounding district, especially to those from across
the border. Me dwelt upon the wonderful possibility for fishing and
hunting that exists in the streams
and hills in the East Kootenay. To
the hunter, one was safe in guaranteeing them every kind of game, excepting the bear. The advantage of
thc East Kootenay was that it was far
less expensive and more productive
than the Cossiar district He made
a strong appeal for the support of
all in the district for the Rod and
Gun Club, in order that the aims and
objects of this worthy organization
might be furthered. One effort alone,
the hatchery, needed the assistance
of all, as the possibility of the government grant being withdrawn this
year made it necessary to secure a
larger amount of money.
Mr. J. F. Guimont, to whose lot
fell the duty of responding to this
toast, delivered an address which was
of much interest, and doubtless will
be the means of adding much support
to thc work of the organisation to
which he belongs. Mr. Guimont first
paid thanks to the parties by whose
assistance and generosity the various
wild meats were provided for the
banquet of which they had partaken.
I He stated that they were much in-
' debted to their Indian friends, who,
'when it came to the pinch, helped
them out by securing a beautiful
deer for them. The Windermere
Kod and Gun Club were also thanked
for the aheep which they sent in, as
was aba Paul Stevens for a mountain
goat      The ktag mt flahen, Billy
Whiting, ulso recoived a good measure of praise fur his efforts in securing the fish fur the occasion, success finully rewarding his efforts with
n twenty-five pound beauty from
Horse .Shot' Luke.
Tlie speaker then went on with a
short outline of the progress which
had been made in Kod and Gun Club
affairs since ils inception in lit 17,
when the first venture wus mude in
stocking a few of tho streums with
spawn. From this he traced down to
the present the remarkable results
from the placing of the spawn in the
States. This was thc contamination
of the Moylfl Kiver, practically ut its
source, by emptying into it the tailings of the concentrator ut present
Hearing completion at Moyie. He
felt that it wus the duty of thc Kod
nnd Gun Clubs of the Stutes, as well
us in Canada, to take whatever steps
they might deem advisable to guard
against this danger. The necessity
of reforestation wus also advanced,
and the great demand mude on the
fish and game supply by the advent
of the auto was another serious factor to be considered, calling for the
rivers,  including what  it  meant in  redoubling of their efforts at protec-
dollars und cents to the community,
basing his calculations on the attainment in six years of a trout to forty
pounds. He spoke ulso of the endeavors of the Club in the establishment of the hatchery, and the wonderful success which had rewarded
their efforts, also the placing of fifty
pheasants in the district and thc sowing of rice. The bringing in of a
hunter to prove or disprove the existence of cougar in the district was
also to their credit. A $1.00 membership meant the placing of a thousand little fish, this being calculated
by dividing the number of fish set
out by the expenses of the Club to
date. The speaker referred to the
absolute necessity of protecting the
fish and game in order that the tourist might continue to be attracted.
In speaking of the advantage of
the East Kootenny over Cassiar, he
gave figures to show where the East
Kootenay district was in all ways the
most advantageous, $1000.00 bcing
the cost of a forty days hunt in the
Cassiar district. He claimed that it
was up to this district to advertise
in such a way that its full advantage
would be obtained. He also dwelt
on the many factors that tended to
the depletion of the game. He disagreed with the somewhat common
opinion that the redskin was responsible in this regard, naming another
race of lighter hue, but of mixed
blood. In B.C., which was a vast empire with a small population, it was
necessary to appeal to the better side
of men in order that the game might
be protected. Predatory animals,
such as the cougar and coyotes, were
Iso named as depleting factors. The
advance of civilization wus also a
cause, as with its advance the hunting decreased. With regard to th*
buck law mentioned by another speaker, he was heartily in accord with
it, substantiating his opinion with the
benefit obtuined in Pennsylvania and
other states. He offered a suggestion to make a game reserve along
the International boundary, and appealed for the support of the American visitors in this regard.    The Elk
tion and propagation. The reduction
of the bag limit in B.C. wus certainly
a step in the right direction. Mr.
Guimont concluded with a strong appeal for the assistance of all in the
work of the Rod and Gun Club if
they were possessed of any interest
in East Kootenay or B.C. Their assistance would be sought, but he suggested that they do not wait, but
come forward with their membership.
He gratefully acknowledged the offer
of the Rotarian and Gyro Clubs.
Loud and long was the applause
which greeted the speaker on the conclusion of his remarks.
Chairman Cooper, at this juncture,
paid excellent tribute to the interest
shown in the work of the association
by one of its members whom, he
claimed, was of somewhat retiring
nature. To his generosity, however,
they were indebted for the placing
in the district of twenty-four partridge, as well as the four valued and
much appreciated contributions to
the menu of the evening. He referred to  Dr.  G,  E.  L.  McKinnon.
Mr. Fredericks, of Eastport,
claimed that he was never more impressed with any gathering than he
had been with that of that evening,
claiming thut it was indeed wonderful
to see such a bunch of men got together in the spirit in which they
were doing. In nothing short of a
very large city might one expect u
similar occurence. With respect to
his position at Eastport, he kindly
offered to use his good office in the
distribution of pamphlets or other
advertising matter in the interests of
Cranbrook and this district, and it is
sufe to say that his offer will be most
cordially accepted.
In his concluding remarks, chairman Cooper referred to a meeting
mentioned by one of the visitors, Mr.
E. R. Thomas, which was to be held
in Boise, Idaho, in August next, and
stating that this district would as-
suredly be justified in the acceptance
of the kind invitation of the United
States Game Board.

Mr. Paul Klinestiver, of Lumberton,

He then mentioned the advantage
of the hatchery method of propagation of fish over the natural method,
outlining the many benefits that had
been obtained locally from its existence. The only cloud on the horizon,
so far as the district was concerned,
was in regard to a matter which in
his opinion would affect both the fish
streams of Canada and the United : Idaho.

A song and chorus by Mr. F. Marsh

put this little event over.

As a result of a conference held
between Mr. Stevenson, Western
Canada Chrysler Sales Manager, and
Messrs. Johnson and Matson, of the
Yahk Auto Supply Garage, this garage will In future be a fully authorized Chrysler automobile Service Station. The proprietors are to be commended on their foresight in securing the service rights on such a popular and dependable make of automobile. At the present time there is
only one Chrysler car owned in Yahk,
a "Six," this car having been driven
over eight thousand miles since the
middle of June last, and it has created an enviable record for speed and
economical running costs.
Mrs. Jenner, the local music teacher, wlio resides nt EriokSon, and
has for the past six weeks been on
a holiday to Drumheller, Alta., will
now be visiting Yahk again every
week, to continue giving piano lessons.
Mr. Hugh McGrandle and Mr. Kelly, both residents of Yahk, were visi-
torH to Cranbrook last Saturday.
Mr. Keene, of Hoppner, Ore., who
is a brother-in-law to Mr. Crowe of
Yahk, and who visited him about
three months ago iu company with
Judge Campbell, also of Hoppner,
Ore., is now reported to have bought
a large acreage in the vicinity of
Jaffray for sheep raising purposes,
and expects to move up to Jaffray in
the early part of the coining spring.
Yahk was again thc scono of an
interesting wrestling match on Saturday night, when Tom Grant, weight
100 odd pounds, of Otis Orchards,
Rpoknne, Wash., met Nels Jepson,
170 pounds, of Yahk, in a best two
out of three falls—"ju-jitsu" match.
Just before the match began, Tom
Grant gave a brief address on the
origin and purpose of ju-jitsu"
wrestling, also defining the very few
holds that were barred in it. In
lieu of proper jackets, the two wrestlers wore mackinaw coats with canvas belts. t In the first round, of
twenty minutes duration, there was
no fall, but Jepson was certainly the
most agressive. The second round
had only gone four and a half minutes when Jepson secured a coat
strangle hold on Grant, making him
concede the first fall. In five and
a half minutes of the third round
Grant secured a cleverly combined
strangle and nerve hold on Jepson,
and in less than four seconds rendered Jepson totally unconscious for
a period of about three minutes.
Seven minutes later thc fourth and
last round began, and some very
clever and fast work was shown by
both. After seven and a half minutes Grant secured much the same
nerve and strangle hold on Jepson
again. Jepson put up a game struggle, but he had not fully recovered
from the first fall Grant had got on
him, and had to concede the lust and
winning fall to him. The match was
a very clean one; at no time did the
referee have to caution either man.
Mr. Gregson, late of Bull River, was
the official timekeeper. The two preliminaries to the main bout were also
very good, the first one being a three
two-minute round boxing contest between Paul Jepson and Daniel Hamilton, both of Yahk. These two boys
put forth their best, and had the
crowd continually applauding them.
Mr. Gregson, of Yahk, and Mr. Sawyer, of Kingsgate, who were the
judges, gave the decision to Daniel
Hamilton. The winner was then
presented with a nice pair of knicker
stockings, besides a half share of the
silver collection thrown into the ring
by the good natured spectators. The
loser was given a round of applause
by the crowd for his game showing.
The second and last preliminary was
also greatly enjoyed, Royce Thompson and Frank Allen, jnr., being the
participants of a three two-minute
round boxing contest. The first
round was won by Allen by a wide
margin, but the second round was
just the reverse; in fact, Thompson
nearly scored a "knock-out" on Allen,
due to the instruction that he had
received in his corner between
rounds. The third round was very
good, both boys doing their utmost.
The judges' decision was a draw, and
the purse of a dollar and a half, plus
the free admission to the main bout
of the evening, was split evenly.
The next wrestling match to be
held in Yahk will, it is expected, be
held in about ten days or two weeks.
It will be a "catch-as-catch-ean"
match, between Nels Jepson and Bill
Root, of Athol, Idaho, on the terms
of "winner take all," besides a very
substantial side bet between them;
in fact, Mr. Lewis, financial backer
of both Tom Grant and Bill Rout, has
deposited a sum of fifty dollars with
one of the Yahk residents as forfeit
money, to guarantee that Bill Root
will appear against Jepson, at Yahk,
on or before the 14th of December
next. Tom Grant has issued a challenge to thc winner uf this coming
match. It is almost unnecessary to
say that the match will be worth travelling a long way to sec. Quite a
number of the Eastport people were
present at thc match between Grant
and Jepson, and also George Anton
of Cranbrook.
Mr. Dan Hollingcr, of the C.P.R,

on Monday.

dience at the Auditorium on Friday,
November 27th, in their smashing
new revue, "Thumbs Up," described
as the best the boys have ever presented.
A wonderful assortment of new
songs, skits, dances, concerted and
character features are introduced in
this revue, which is played with thnt
dash and pep for which the "Originals" nre justly famous. There is
not n pause in the entire production,
and changes are made with lightning-like rapidity.
The cast includes all the old favorites with Percy Campbell back on
the boards and "the other lady," who
vies with Gene Pearson f»r popularity in sketch, song and dance.
Gene's marvelous voice is even better thnn before, and the ovation accorded "her" everywhere has been
phenomenal. Both "ladies" are presented in gorgeous gowns from London, shoes from Now York nnd dainty
requisites from Paris that set tho
fashion in these centres.
Everything is new, and most of
the big hits were secured in London
by members of the company. Alan
Murray and Leonard Young hove
spared no expense to put this revue
over on more glittering lines than
anything else they ever produced.

Organized expressly for the purpose of accommodating the livestock
breeders of the province of British
Columbia, the first annual Winter
Livestock Show and Sale at Vancouver Exhibition Grounds on December
10, 11 and 12 promises to be very
successful in every way. There is
over $5,000 in prizes, and these,
added to the sale prices, should make
it very much worth while for the
breeders. Prize lists have been forwarded to every breeder in the province, and if the undertaking is to be
the first of a perpetual series of annual shows destined to develop the
livestock and agricultural industry
here, every man interested In this
development should make it his business to support the show.
The Dominion government has
given practical demonstration of its
enthusiastic interest by the provision
of substantial prizes in all classog of
beef and dairy cattle, sheep and

Bob Wilson, a young tramp, has

Jim did not look at thc infant
long. He cast a loving glance toward the doorway of a darkened adjoining room, then whirled joyously
upon the Doctor and framed thc
question that was uppermost in his
"And—my wife—?"
The doctor snapped his bag soberly. Bob, watching, saw the midwife, Mrs. O'Leary, clutch the baby
close to her in a scared way; saw
the minister wet his lips. The Doctor, in whose face were the lines and
the cares of hard fights and harder
responsibilities, conceived words that
hia voice failed to bear; then seemed
to expect that the testimony of his
face would serve beyond the need of
But Jim, in a sudden frenzy,
caught hold of him and shook him.
"My boy," the Doctor forced himself to say in an awkwardly flat and
tired voice, "your wife is dead!"
Bob, the shabby and bruised hobo,
in that tragic moment had a leaden
feeling that he was sucrilcgiously out
of place, and wished that he were
a thousand disinterested miles away.
But this selfish thought was dismissed the next instant by a wave of
human sympathy for the man who
had befriended him. Over that slenderly fine and idealistic face, so-
flushed with love and adoring pride
and happy expectations only a few
moments before, there now came
such a frozen and bloodless vacant-
ness as might be on the face of a lost
soul before the Final Bar, struggling
to grasp the sentence of eternal condemnation he has just heard pronounced by the Maker.
Bob had never seen such naked
tragedy. He felt himself relaxing

stepped. Jim, on rigid limbs, moved
stiffly toward a dark door. The
sepulchral silence of this outer room
seemed a hallowed measure for that
inner one. The doctor, knowing full
well the devastating menace of such
a pent up flood of emotion, shook
Jim as if in an effort to break loose
the key log of his emotions.

tone, and walked on, as if he had

"Take the little one, Jimmy—"
he said tremulously.
Jim automatically received the infant into his outstretched hands, and
a concerted sigh announced the belief of the professional watchers that
surcease for Jim was at hand. Bob,
however seeing in Jim's face a dull
insensibility of what he was doing,
was not fooled.    It was well that he

Thc silence became so oppresive

In n recent article on the progress
of the province's road work Hon Dr.
Sutherland, Minister of Public
Works, states that splendid advance
has been made with the programme
which thc department has mapped
out. The new road through the Fraser canyon will bc completed by next
summer. The road between Quesnel and Prince George is receiving
a gravel surface this year. Work
done on the Prince Gcorge-Hazelton
road enables motorists to travel be-
tween those two places, a distance
of 300 miles. Work is continuing

The Herald has received an interesting booklet from the Postmaster, entitled "Post Office Progress,"
which is well worth study by any
who are interested in the development of the public services. The
post offlce is rightly described as
"Canada's Biggest Business," with
12,400 places of business, nine million customer-shareholders, and while
carrying the mails is looked upon in
a very matter-of-fact way by most
people, this booklet gives an insight
into the modern methods that have
been introduced to make the service
as speedy and efficient as it is. there
being a remarkably small percentage
of losses, considering the immense
volume of business handled. The
manifold departments of post office
work are described, and illustrations
tell graphically the progress of the
department, and how modern business methods are being applied. The
post office is one of the governments
that believes in advertising, and in
various ways the public has been urged to make as much use as possible
of its own service. Some historical
aspects of the service are also touched upon, and also the status of Canada as a nation in the postal union
of nations. For those who seek to
learn all they can of thc services of
the country, the booklet is well worth
a perusal, being full of information

Preservation of Totem Poles
During the past summer considerable work was accomplished by the
dominion government through Mr.
Harlan I. Smith, of the Victoria
Museum, Ottawa, in connection with
the preservation of the totem poles
at Kitwanga and vicinity, along the
Jasper-Prince Rupert line of the
Canadian National Railways, where
considerable improvement in the appearance of these poles and other
Indian totems was effected, which
will result in their lasting for many
years. It is the intention of the
government to continue the work of
preservation of Indian totem poles
and other relics next year in the
Kitwanga district, and no doubt this
policy will be extended to other districts concerned.

been investigating traffic and other
