At Special Council
Meeting
SLIGHT INCREASE SHOWN
A special meeting uf the city council was held on Monday evening,
when the full uldermanic hoard wan
in attendance with the exception of
Alderman Carlyle, who wns out of
the city.
To constitute the court of revision on the voters' list, which has just
been made up for the next year, the
Mayor will preside, with Aldermen
Carlyle and MacPherson. The Court
aits on Wednesday evening next, at
7 p.m., just previous to the regular
council session that evening.
Correspondence was read between
the district government engineer and
the chief engineer at Victoria, relative to the changes made in the original plans for the Gold Creek water
diversion. The eity engineer was instructed to furnish the government
with amended plans as requested by
them.
The special committee appointed
to make a reassessment of the city
has completed the new tax roll, and
submitted their report to the council at this meeting. It was received
and accepted subject to whatever
changes are made at the statutory
court of revision on the assessment
roll, which meets early in the year..
The report of the committee will be
read with interest. It was as follows:

It is also stated that Alderman G.
D. Carlyle may not be in the running
again, he being understood to have
intimated so to some friends. Many
people will regret this if it is the case,
the feeling being that Alderman Carlyle, in spite of being out of the city
a great deal, has devoted a good deal
of time and interest to civic business.
This was his first year on the council.
W. F. Doran, the retiring police
commissioner, is also understood to
be desirous of dropping out when his
term expires, and mny not be a candidate again. For thc vacancy on
the commission tlie name of J. R.

year, is already being mentioned.

"My but she was uoe grand night."
Such was the verdict of the large
assemblage of Native Sons of Canada wlm gathered in the lodge room
on Wednesday evening to listen to
the men from the county of Bruce
and that adjoining portion of the
American continent commonly referred to as Ontario, They were all
there from one end ot the province
to the other. Led by Dr. J. W. Rutledge, a number of chosen representatives of the near inland island of
Canada made the Lnst apology they
could for the existence of the pro-
[vince of their birth.

to start his meeting with an Intermission. Nobody objected as its
purpose was for tho passing of the

doctor said that he would not say
much, but that he would bring on a
bunch of vocalists, instrumentalists
and orators,   that   would   leave   no
doubt in the minds of those present
;as to the premier position that Ontario held in these arts. To prove or
disprove his claims, the doctor introduced an organisation known as

Monday evening a number of ihe  Church  Growth  Synonymous
Gyros gathered at the depot to bid I
farewell to one of their number, A.
McDougall Hogg, who was leaving on
the east bound train for St. Johns,
Irom whence he sails on the 11th of
the month on the "Metagama" for
Glasgow. In  bidding  farewell  to
their esteemed brother member the
Gyros gave "Mac" all sorts of kindly (?) advice with respect to his
plans for the future. Those in the
know, however, think that he is beyond thc advising stage and that the
next time that "Fred," "Doc" and
"Stew" call on him he will be comfortably settled in his new home, and
that there will be no one there whom
they have recognized before either
in Vancouver, Calgary or Cranbrook.
"Mac" intends to make short stops
at Winnipeg, Port William and Montreal before sailing from St. John
for Glasgow, from where he leaves at
once for his home in Airdrie, which
he left about five years ago to come
to Canada. Since arriving in this
country he spent two years at his
calling of mechanical engineering,
before joining the investigation department of the C.P.R.
When leaving, Mr. Hogg expected
to be away about three months, but
on his return expects to be located in
Vancouver.
With many others in Cranbrook,
the Herald regrets the city is losing
men of the character nnd ability of
Mr. Hogg. He was always willing to
give unstintingly of his time and talent in the interest of any worthy
cause, the actual staging of the recent Gyro concert, and to a large
measure the success that the function enjoyed being attributable to his
efforts. Should by any chunce Mr.
Hogg find his lot cast in Cranbrook,
he will always be sure of a welcome.
Mr. Hogg has also assisted the Musical Society materially in their recent concert effovts.

THF. PRINC&'S THOROUGHBRED SHEEP
After aaving enjoyed about as much privacy
the proverbial goldfish during the international
polo games near New York, the Prince of Wales retired to the quiet and seclusion of his Canadian "Little Grey Home in thc West," 25 miles from High
River, Alberta, a station on the Canadian Pacific, to
rest for a few days, recreate and work far from curious crowds, reporters, still photographers and
"movie" men, It is very pleasant, no doubt, to be
the most popular young man in tha world, but about
once a year thc rolling hills and rich prairie land of
his "E. P. Hanch" call the Prince of Wales, Bar' •
Renfrew or "Davy Windsor," as they refer to H.r.:i.
in Alberta, back to the land.
Tho prince fs a real farmer and rancher, and is
honestly endeavoring to improve thc breed of horses,
sheep and cattle in Western Canada. His pure-bred,
Imported animals and their offspring have won many
prizes in competition at live stock shows in Western
Canada not because they were from the royal ranch,
but because they were the very best exhibited. Since
to bought him 4,100 men ranch io Albert* ia 1019,
the prince has been sending to it tne best stock lift
could secure in Great Britain, and every year he sella
at auction the surplus animals for the benefit of live
stock breeders In the western provinces. The Earl of
Minto, who has a big ranch near-by, does the same
thing, Also, King George loans thc prince some of
his best animals for the stud.
"He's a neighborly kid," said one of the memberi
of the Alberta Shorthorn Breeders' Association.
"When he comes out here we don't chase him as they
do in other places. We just let him ride, and next
thing you know ha has all of us neighbors in as his
guests, and meets us just as a neighbor. Ho wants'
to meet all the ranchers who arc his neighbors, and'
there Isn't a thing about ranching he doesn't want to
know. His ranch Is no fad. Ho Is running it for
the benefit of Canada first, and second for tho pur-
nose of making tho "E. P. Ranch" a business venture,
just as any level-headed man would do. When he Is

and shoulders above the other competing provinces of Quebec and Saskatchewan, both in the numbers ond
the value of its products. The matter of poultry was also touched on
it being shown that Ontario was a
leader in this too.
The next musical number was a
saxophone trio by J. Ward. D. Dean
and D. A. Kay, with Ira McNaugh-
tan at the piano.
Mr. C. R. Ward, who had for his
subject the pioneer history of Ontario, gave an interesting outline of
events prior to the ndvent of responsible government. Though Cabot in
14!»7, and Hudson In 1610 had discovered the east coast of North
America und the Hudson Bay respectively, it was not till 1013 that Cham-
plain ascended the Ottawa river, and
two years later the Huron and On
tnrio lakes. In 1040 Lake Erie whs
discovered, the total population at
that time being 240. For variou
reasons little advancement was rnide
in the settlement of the country till
when with the formation of the
Hudson's Bay Company, the first agricultural settlement was founded bv
Frontenac ner.r Kingston, In 1700
i was the British invasion of Canada
'and in 1718 the Hudson's Bay sec
tion was ceded to Britain.
In 1703 the treaty of Paris ceded
the whole of Canada to the British.
In 1774 by the Quebec Act, a large
portion of what is now Ontario became part of Quebec.        1775 and
1770 saw tbe invasion and defeat of
the  Americans  by  Carlton.        1783
saw the great influx of U, E. Loyal-
! ists, who with much difficulty car-
[ried on the first farming of Ontario.
They had many hardships to endure.
; the rise in the price of wheat, due
first to the Crimean war und later
I to the American Civil war was the
first boost to advancement.    Due to
■the demand for English civil law the
Constitutional Act of 1701 established the  province nf  Upper Canada,
with   a   lieutenant-governor   and a
legislative council and legislative assembly.   Fail'-   -f fhe people to secure control of the executive council
, caused   the  struggle  for  n?H>onsible
| government which culminated in the
rebellion of  1S37.    Lord  Dunham
Ireport paved the way for the union
nf the Canndas in 18-10 with the first
-parliament of Canada at Kingston ii
11841, the population then being 445,-
08H.    In 1844 the capital was moved
I to Montreal.      Government changes
Icame rapidly till 1848 when Baldwin
land   Lafontaine  gave   what   is   now
popularly known as responsible gov-
eminent.
1812 saw the declaration of war
with the United States, ending two
years later with the treuty of Ghent.
In 1820, Bytown, now Ottawa was
founded, in 182!) the Welland canal
was opened nnd in 1834 the city of
Toronto was incorporated
Next Sunday will mark th.
anniversary of tbe opening ■:' thi
Methodist church in Cranbrook. Tii'
occasion will be one uf hi.-;..vie- in
terest.
December 10th, 18D-J is ancien
history in this rapidly changing com
munity. So far us can he learnei
there remain only three of ih ,..<> wh
took a prominent part in the churcl
life ut that time.
Mr. G. W. Patmore and M*i. W
B. MacFarlane were members of th
official hoard and Mr, E. A. Hill wa
a member of the choir, of which Mn
W. T. Reid was leader. Other mem
hers of the board were Mr. W. I
Reid, Mr. G. II. Miner. Mr. BaUej
Mr, Prest and Mr. Hetheringt •
Rev. W, G, Smith, probatioi. r, ha
since transferred to Manitoba
MacFarlane still treasures o
presented to her hy the church b ian
in recognition of hev distinction a
the first bride to be married ir. thi
new cluirch, May 2nd, 1900.
Rev. W. .1. Bowering followed i-
the   pastoral   succession   from   Mav
mon to 1002.   To accommodate hi
family  the  parsonage  was   I
1900 by Mr.  George  Leask.    Som<
renders may remember a near- ■.!.■■■
trophe  which  occurred   in  January
i>0l,  at a  music  recital  given   b;
Miss Jardine, when, by 4he slipping
of a ladder, blazing oil from a large
[imp  was  scattered  over  the   floor.
The   audience    immediately   rushed
for the  door  and   the  danger  from
the crowding of the  panic-stricken
people was added to the menace of
the fire.    Happily the panic was allayed before anyone was injured and
the fire smothered out under rug?.
so little actual harm resulted.
Many kind memories still linger
concerning the pastorate of Rev. S.
■J. Thompson, a lanky Canadian with
an Irish heart. In 1903 the vestry
was built by Messrs. Cartwright and
Harris.
In those days a rather "temperamental" population lived in the vicinity of the church. On Christmas
Eve of 1902 the parsonage turkey
was "appropriated" from the kitchen
porch before nine o'clock in the evening. In November, 1904, the
church clock donated by W. H. Wilson, was stolen from the church. Possibly someone thought the place to
consider the time for church wai be
fore leaving home, and adjusted thi
timepiece accordingly.
During the pastorate of Rev. J. P,
Westman, now president of conference, (10O5-10U7), pews were placed
in the church and a furnace installed. The Sunday School room was
built in 1900, serving first as a gymnasium, In the pastoral term of
Rev. Robert Hughes, 1007-1911, the
original indebtedness of the trustee
board was lifted and thc mortgage
on the property burned. The pastorate of Rev. W. E. Dunham, 1311-
1915, was marked by the installing
of the pipe organ and the building Df
the gymnasium across the street, now
ontrolled by the Recreation Club.
Then followed the pastorates of
Rev. T. Keyworth for three years and
Rev. R. W. Leo for four years
that of the present incumbent. Rev.
B. C. Freeman.
For the anniversary services n< xt
Sunday, every effort Is being made
to make the day memorable. Rev.
■lames Kvans, of Kimberley. will be
the speaker for the day. The junior choir has been preparing special
numbers for the morning, as has the
senior choir for the evening, Mrs,
Kvans und Mrs. Marsden. of Kimberley, both talented vocalists, will assist in the music ut the even! .v
vice.

The latest fall of snow has ha
tiered work on the rink, which was
rapidly being put into condition far
skating—an occurrence which is one
of the drawbacks with an open rink.
However, once the snow is cleared

stated, was getting thine;* nlong in

The Shriners' Dance held in Cranbrook last Priday night was attended
by a large number of Wycliffe people, among whom were Mr. and Mrs.

I The affair was voted locally as the
most enjoyable event that lias been
held in Cranbrook during the present dancing season.
The radiolte epidemic has assumed
serious proportions and the eases already reported are gating no better
fast, A broadcasting station should
be thc next item on the wireless program if the radio wave continues to
J increase. If old Ananias listened in
Ion any of these radio conversations
'between local fans we believe he'd
ibe ashamed of himself. So far. we
have found one operator only who ad-
j mits—grudgingly— that South Africa can't be brought in on his loud
speaker. Judging from present per-
I formances', someone is going to find
| out what kind of static they supply
at Mars, about the middle of next
week. One chap we know, says, "if
your girl tells you to 'go try the
air,*" nowadays, it don't menu for
you to park your No. 12*8 outside the
garden gate,—not *o,—she wants
you to go wrestle with the raido—
papa's probably on his way downstairs.
The man who buys temporary luxuries when he
needs a home, has given ample proof to all interested that he lacks good judgment.
Regardless of season, regardless of high or low
market prices, a needed building is a better invest-
men than 99 % of the remaining things for which
men pay out money.
No matter how small your home is to be or what
limit you place on the cost, you will find this Company ready to fill the bill.
Let us show you what thorough assistance you
are offered without additional expense.

This advertisement Is not published or displayed by tlie Liquor
Control Board or by the Government of British Columbia,
Drastic changes in the provincial
police system have been effected by
Attorney-General Manson. In future
Inspector Miller, of the Liquor Control Board, and his staff, will be full
fledged officials of the provincial police, reporting to Col. McMullen,
superintendent of enforcement under
the government Liquor Act. The
attorney-general expects this arange-
ment to aid materially in the enforcement of the liquor laws.
Very important eh-mires in the Motor Vehicle Act may also be put
through the House by Attorney General Manson. In future nil drivers
of motor vehicles will be eskod to pay
a license fee of one dollar and must
have their licenses on thorn at all
times when in charge of un automobile. Automobile courts will be es- j
tablished for the handling of all offences against the Act, the attorney-
general urging the prevention of accidents through police intervention.
A plan similar to that in use in the
state of Washington will be inaugurated in this province. Motorists licenses will be issued in the form of
white cards. This is suspended after
the first offence and a blue card sub-
tctod, Following a second offence
ed card will be given the motorist.
After hix i ionths, if the driver has
shown can- and an intention to live
up to the Uw, the white card will be
'given bock again, thus starting the
driver off again with a clean sheet.
Pei nie provincial police district
has been enlarged to include Cranbrook. Chief Greenwood, with headquarters at Fernie, will be in charge
of the territory from Crow's Nest to
Creston.
At the annual meeting of shareholders of the Imperial Bank of Canada held in Toronto cm Wednesday,
November   2r»th,   the   60th   annual
statement of the bank was presehtei
It is generally admitted thai liusines.
generally    during   the    last    V
months has been seriously depr
und the excellent statement which the
directors presented does great credit
to the management.    In addition, it
clearly demonstrates thai a moderate
sized bank can with profit give
quate banking facilities to Canadian
business.
A comparison of figures with those
of a year ago will reveal several interesting particulars.
Deposits have been well maintained and now stand at over $H8,0U0,-
000, of which over $70,000,000 are
interest bearing.
It bus been the policy uf the Imperial Bank for many years past to
maintain a considerable portion of its
funds in highly liquid assets and the
present statement is well in accor
with this policy. Cush in hnnd an
kindred assets are §27.000,000, or
over 27 per cent, of the hank's liabilities to the public, while quickly
realizable assets stand at SoO.OOO.OOO
or 5!) per cent, of public liabilities.
It is interesting to note the large
sum represented by Dominion
Provincial government securities,
which now stand nt ?i;t,187,000, or
$1,400,000 over the figure reported
a year ago.
The figures of profit and loss
statement are very satisfactory. The
earnings for the year, after deducting charges of management and other items including full provision for
bad and doubtful debts, stand at
$1,107,88!>.K9, which has allowed the
directors to pay quarterly dividend
at the rate of 12 per cent, per annum,
and in addition a bonus of I per cent,
to make the usual contributions to
Guarantee and Pension funds and
carry forward to next year a sum
of $5,000 in excess of a year ago,
$1,039,223.19.
Current loans always reflect business conditions and it is therefore
not surprising to note that under this
heading there has been a reduction of
$6,000,000.
Non-current loans, which a year
ago stood at $6:10,000, have been reduced to $323,000.
Bank premises account is slightly
up over the figures of u year ago, the
other items in tbe assets remaining
practically the same as in the statement of October 31, 1923.

miners who are thrown out of employment by the closing of the Coal
Creek mines, by providing work, for
the more needy cases, on the Trans-
Continental   Highway.
At the request of the government,
a committee of miners' officials and
the G.W.V.A. has been formed to
pick out those men who are in straitened circumstances for this work.
A start was made to clear a camp
site for the men about seven miles
west of Fernie, where the government are going to straighten out one
of the worst curves on the Fernie-
Elko highway, known locally as the
"hairpin turn," by trestle work and
filling in across the ravine. Several
other fills are contemplated between
Fernie and Elko, while at Crow's
Nest, just close to the Alberta boundary, it is expected another gang will
be started to blast away some rock
and widen an extremely nnrrow and
dangerous piece of the main road.
Work on the proposed Corbin road
has also been spoken about, but it is
not expected thnt this will be possible
during the winter. This road has
long been sought by the Corbin people as an outlet from their town,
which is praeticnlly isolated from
Southeastern B.C. through the lack
of a highway to the trans-continental
road. Should the Coal Creek mines
be still tied up next spring, it is practically certain that this much desired
road will be built.
A very generous gift of many vol
umes was recently made to the dis
trict by Mrs. A. II. MacCarthy. At b
public meeting held last week it was
determined to go ahead and form a
library association i'or Windermere
mining division. Mrs. A. H. MacCarthy, Mrs. E. M. Sandilands, Dr. F.
Coy, A. M. Chlsholm, and Basil
Hamilton were appointed a committee pro tern to take thc necessary
proceedings, he membership fee was
placed at one dollar iter annum.

.ire timed just when they are, since it mean;
natural rush of Christmas and the surge of magnanimity it never fails to bring must tend to moderate
what might otherwise develop into badinage of a
more acrimonious and personal nature than is called
for in the discussion of civic politics. It is highly
desirable that the ratepayers manifest an intelligent
interest in civic affairs, init just as undesirable to
carry it too far, beyond the point where discussion
ceases to bc useful, but becomes carping, petty and
even venomous. The division of candidates into
parties, tickets, slates, or by whatever name they
may be called, inevitably tends to the introduction of
narrow issues into au election, and often results in
a good man not getting thc support lie might otherwise, were his name not coupled with that of someone else who may not be as well thought of, When
a man runs for mayor, alderman, or any other public
office, it should be for what ability he may be judged to have to assume a share of the management of
the city's affairs and not because it is felt he would
or would not support some other candidate whu may
be in the running. Every man should stand on his
merits, and not try to climb into office on some one
else's.

Creek water diversion is the big accomplishment of
thc year, and is not an undertaking on which a sna]
judgment can be passed.   The weather has not been
such as to allow water a free passage down the ditch
and it is not unreasonable to suppose that where
seepage has occurred it can be overcome when thc
weather permits.   Thc elements have also worked
against the installation of thc new water system at
Slaterville, not a simple undertaking at any time,
owing   to   the   conditions encountered along the
course of thc pipe line.   The work on the road:
streets has been kept down lo a minimum
soon as there is more money to spend, more worklK
can be done.   The incoming council should consider jremov
whether the installation   of   a    satisfactory rock-
crusher would not be a good investment for street
work, and should also take up thc maiter of further
lowering the power rates so as to give every possible inducement for bulk consumption,    Handsome

Mr. Barberis, of Nelson, who for
the past week has boen a Cranbrook
visitor, returned to the city on the
lake on Monday lnst. Mr. Barberis,
whose work as a member of the famous Skivinski Trio in the recent Gyro
concert will be remembered with
pleasure for many a day, is a man of
the right sort. To be of service to
the Cranbrook Gyro Cluh. of which
his friend Bert Sang is a member, he
spent two days in first preparing the
work in Nelson v. ith Mr. Sang, then
coming over Monday for rehearsal,
and the concerts Tuesday and Wednesday. This was a direct sacrifice
of time nnd money for whicli there
was no retuiM. To a Herald representative. Mr. Barberis intimated that
he was pleased to he of service to
nny cause such as the Gyros were
supporting, and if his efforts gave
pleasure he was well enough repaid.

Concert failed to mention two gen-

unseen by the audience, contributed
In no ami '1 measure to the success
of the entertainments. Ono wns Mr.

, ut. in- ! wns responsible for the arranging of the scenery nnd changes
between the acts, as well as the various lighting effects. Without "Bill"
things would not have run as smoothly as they did. Secondly, Mr. Alan
Graham, whose task, the remodelling of the countenances of nil the
Gyros, was no light one. Tho manner in which Mr. Graham went about
"making up" the members of the
cast showed that he wns no greenhorn
at the game nnd his work showed up
to advantage) the opinion being that
ii waa "just right." He also gave

PUPILS OF MR. BRUCE
ROBINSON GIVE
PIANO RECITAL
i
What is hoped by many to be a
revival of class recitals of local mtide teachers, was given by Mr. Bruce
Robinson's pupils on Monday evening
last in the scliool room of the Presbyterian Cliureli, when a large number of the parents and friends of Mr.
Robinson and of his pupils, gathered
to hear the young players perform,
in most instances for the first time
public. They were assisted by
two artists, Mrs. J. E, Warren and
Mr. J. K. Chorlton, in vocal and
'cello solos respectively.
A delightful musical evening was
given by Mr. Robinson's class, Mr.
Robinson himself contributing a very
pleasing piano solo.
Kev. B. W. MacKay, who made an
excellent chairman  for an affair of||
this  kind,  expressed  what  he  con- §
sidered was the feeling of all those s
present by saying that they had lis-11
tened to a very interesting program,
and that he was pleased to tender to
Mr. Robinson and his pupils as well
as  the  other  assisting  artists,   Mrs.
Warren nnd Mr, Chorlton, an expression of their appreciation therefor.
He trusted that from this beginning more such pleasant musical evenings would result. Cranbrook did
not lack talent, in fact he doubted
much whether she could be equalled
anywhere in this respect. In his own
particular manner he offered a word
of encouragement to the young pupils which will doubtless have its effect in spurring them on to even
greater effort. Mc also expressed
his delight in seeing so many boys taking part in the program, they could
apply their energies to music and
make it just as much a man's job as
playing hockey or any other game—
while possibly they could not expect
to equal the girls, they could at least
keep them in sight. Following the
completion of the program by the
pupils, the diplomas won by six pupils of Mr. Robinson at the last McGill university musical examinations
were presented by the chairman, who
standing they had attained as evidenced by the gaining of these coveted diplomas. He hoped to have the
pleasure of being present when they
came forward for higher awards.
Were it alone for the interest in
music that Mr. Robinson is apparently able to instil in a large number of
boys of Cranbrook who otherwise
might be less profitably employed
the Herald wishes him every success
in his chosen profession, which he
makes his sole source of livelihood.
The  following was  the  program,
which was very creditably presented
by the pupils:

icmbers of Lumberton L.O.
1016, entertained a large
of their friends on Tuesday
nf this week in the Lumber-
i looms, the occasion being;
| the second annual banquet. Prior to
(the "st home'' three members of the
order were advanced to the third
til •** - in tin- work, which was followed hy tin- banquet", llr. 1-:. A.
Cook, president of thc local lodge,
acted ns toast master during the
ninjr in a very capable manner. For-
iietnhers and their friends
ted round thc banquet table
when activities were under way. It
'.'.his without Buying that everyone
partook vory heartily, ns Ed, Cook
had neglected no details and everything was prepared in a manner thnt
even made many of the benedicts
fiinii thc hill sit up and take notice,
and from the appearance of the table after the feed had progressed,
the married men had held np their
end of it, and were even a shade better than those from the hotel. The
turkey did not happen to he Lumberton raised hut its fate was soon
scaled after it did arrive. After all
those present had completely taken
care of the wants of the inner man,
Ml'. Cook called on several of the
lodge nicmhcfs and guests for remarks. The principal speaker of the
evening was .Mr. W. T, Jaso. provincial grand organizer for the
Orange lodge in B.C. Mr. Jago pave
a very interesting address in which
he clarified the objects and ideals of
tin- order for the benefit of those
who were not familiar with the workings of the Orange lodge, and what
it is accomplishing in this province,
ns well its other provinces in the Dominion. Thc local lodge has been
functioning for only a comparatively
short period, for it was organized
only a little over a year ago. At that
lime there were only eleven members
on the roster, whereas at the present
time thc lodge boasts of an enrollment of thirty-six members, which in
a place the size of Lumberton antl
under the handicaps which confront
those interested in the progress of the
local lodge, is indeed
which they can he justly proud. The
gathering broke up at a rather late
hour, everyone wishing the hosts
continued progress and prosperity.
The rink is in the home stretch,
for thc flooding is now in progress.

with suitable -.-weather for the formation of ice. wc should have skating

Walter Walters and William Had
eliT, the well known Cranbrook res
taurantoursj both of whom ut one
time resided lure when H. Tuck operated the Lit. Cafe, arrived from
Revelstoke and points on the Coast,
reporting tho roads in fairly good
condition all lhe way.
Some weeks ago these two gentlemen passed through here, tfoiiiK by
way of the highway to Grand Forks,
hut that thoroughfare is now closed
to traffic ow account of the heavy
snow.
The two had some thrills en route
home. Soon after crossing the line
and when negotiating a very steep
incline, they observed a barricade of
huge logs and trees across the road,
and upon pulling up were confronted
by two U.S. liquor enforcement officials heavily armed with shotguns and
revolvers. Both Messrs, Walters and
Kadelil'f were "frisked" nnd their
auto was given the "once over" and
they were permitted to go their way.
"Our first impression was that we
were facing hold-up men," they stated.
Everywhere they went, they declare they met with the most courteous treatment at hotels and other
placs catering to the automobilist on
tour.
The Cranbrookites departed Sunday afternoon for Nelson, where they
remained ou Monday, leaving on the
Crow boat en Tuesday morning for

The regular weekly meeting of the
Lumberton Club was held on Wednesday evening of last week in tbe
cluli rooms. Six tables of whist were
in play during the early part of the
evening. The prizes to those having scored the highest number of
points during the entire month were
awarded in the following order: Mrs.
.1. 11. Walton, ladies' first; Miss Kathleen Downey, ladies' consolation; Mr.
A. C. Scheffler, gent's first; Mr. R.
B. Mitchell, gent's consolation. A
lunch was served by the committee
in charge of the entertainment and
dancing was then the order of the
evening until twelve midnight. Messrs. II. F. Wilson and P. Weyenburgh
furnished the music for the occasion
and the members of the club are very
much indebted tn them for having
donated their services. The following committee was appointed to have
charge of tbe meetings for the month
of December: Mesdames T. Gustafson, R. .1. Issler and Miss Emily Ger-
gory, Messrs. B. Sternberg, II. A.
Piper and A. ('. Scheffler.
Mr, I''. Kosovich. who has been
spending several weeks visiting with
friends in Spokane, returned to Lumberton last Sunday. We rather ex-'

cans again this year, bul Prank says

Mr. Ilarley Miner, caterpillar engineer at camp 2, returned to Lumberton also on Sunday last from a
visit of several days in Spokane.
There will be no need to cut any

stance, he recounted to the Star representative that just beyond the summit on Tuesday, November 18th, it
snowed three feet in half an hour.
His horse, which was not in good
condition, after its long trip from
Calgary, apparently gave up the
struggle near the summit, and Stub
made the return trip as far as Jamie
son's on a pair of skis which he fashioned for himself out of a small
birch tree. He left his saddle and
tbe greater portion of his pack at
Fitzgerald's cabin, returning for it
later on a horse which he borrowed
from Billy Huff. "It was what in
this country you call 'damn cold,' "
he said in answer to a query as to
the temperature. He further stated
that his dog had been frozen, but the
animal did not appear any the worse
for the experience. Stub left Princeton early Sunday afternoon and was
back at Jamieson's on Wednesday.
It is understood that he left this morning on his second attempt. Those
best acquainted with the hills and
trails in winter time tried to persuade him to go by Brookmere nnd
the Kettle Valley Railway.

MARION OLIVER MISSION BAND STAGE VERY
SUCCESSFUL CONCERT
HOCKEY YEAR BOOK
SOMETHING NO FAN
SHOULD BE WITHOUT
Friday evening last the Morion
Oliver Mission Bund of Knox Presbyterian Church maintained the enviable reputation it has gained for
doing things in thorough .style, when
another concert of this active organization  of the church was staged.
Despite the fact that the week
had been crammed with ali sorts of
concerts ami entertainments, and
that the same evening there were other attractions, the hall was crowded
to capacity to hear the young folk
put on what proved to be a most « n
joyable evening's entertainment. To
those responsible for the guidance of
the affairs of the Mission Ran.I. the
success of the event should be gratifying, and n source of encouragement to further effort in the work
whicb they are undertaking!
The program opened with a speech
from the chairman, .Master Malcolm
dit for filling this position most ac
Harris, who must be given due cre-
coptably. lie referred to the proud
position the Marion Oliver Mission
Band had attained in the past but
said they were not resting content,
but constantly striving to improve.
Following this came the Mission
Band prayer and the Thanksgiving
Chorus by thc juniors.
The next item was a very interesting one entitled "Mother Goose Missionary Family," put on by the president and twenty-one of the juniors.
The total absence of any sign of
stage fright among the large number of these little performers was
very noticeable.
The chorus, "At Night," as sung
by the junior C.G.l.T. girls, would
have done credit to many a more experienced choir. Mrs. E. \V. Paterson was responsible for the training
of the girls.
In the intermissions between the
three acts, Donna Leiteh and Herbert
Potter rendered piano solos which
were well received.
"The Missionary Barrel," a play in
two acts, was a sermon iu itself, containing many truths given out in a
pleasing and effective way. Those
taking part in this little play were:
Jean Warren, Lily Nelson, Dorothy
Spence, Sherman Harris, Douglas
Paterson, Gordon Dezall, Ronald
Moffatt, Edith Carlyle, Lorna Barber, Mary Huchcroft, Marian Williams, Helen McGill. Betty Lunn,
Norma Surtees, Grace Flett, Peggy
Johnson.
Dora Huchcroft acted as Mother
Goose ,aml Sheila Paterson as introducer.
The program concluded with the
Mission Band Motto and Rally Song.
Assisting the leaders, Mrs. G. D.
Garlyle and Mrs. A. J. Balment,
were Mrs. E. W. Pateson and Mrs.
K. Potter.
The editor has received a copy of
the Hockey Pictorial which has just
been published, and which is at once
the handsomest and most complete
publication ever produced in the
'world for any Bingle sport, lt is a
'marvel of good taste in artistry and
industry of achievement. It is impossible to speak too highly of it.
The hook represents years of effort, typographically ami pictorially
ii is a "masterpiece." From cover to
cover it is embellished with group
pictures of championship teams from
1888 to 1024, In fact the history of
Canada's Great National Winter
!Sport is told iu pictures.
! Among the many illustrations of
i the various championship teams are
two of particular interest to Southern
|B. C, hockey fans. They are half-
j tones of the Bellevue Bulldogs, 1924
Alberto champions, and of the 1023
Blairmore tribe that earned off the
provincial honors that year. Ollie
Keinikka, now with the Vancouver
.Maroons was then a member of the
Blairmore team.
Old-timers will be interested in the
handsome halftones of the teams who
were prominent a generation ago,
while the younger enthusiasts will enjoy thc reproduction of the more recent winners.
Tho book is not only lavishly illustrated, but is literally crammed with
much interesting Information regarding individuals, clubs and leagues
throughout the country.
Local hockey fans will find a very
interesting group picture of the Canadian Olympic Hockey Champions of
l!*2'l on the front cover, and also a
complete history of tlie players and
records right to the finals.
The hood sells for two dollars, and
can he secured by writing to the
Hockey Pictorial, 84 Victoria Street,
Toronto.

Sir Charles Metcalfe Ihey resigned,
to be followed by the Uraper-Viger
government. Falling in securing the
support of the two provinces, tliey
resigned, and were followed by Baldwin and Lnfontaine. "The Judicature Act," The Municipal Incorporation Act," "The Toronto University
Act," and the "Amnesty Act," and
"The Rebellion Losses Bill," were
some of the important measures they
had to their credit before they retired in 1851, The work of the
liinks-Forin, the McNab and the
John MacDoiiiild administration were
touched upon, principal of which was
the great fight for representation by
population and Confederation. Much
other interesting data was given by
Mr. Huchcroft, this we hope to hnve
the pleasure of publishing at some
later date.
"Old Black Joe," as played on the
'cello and flute by the "Wards," was
the next bit.
The industrial life of Ontario was
ably dealt with by Mr. W. S. Santo,
who pointed out the wonderful manufacturing establishments that she
possessed, the great power installation at Niagara, etc.. While Ontario
was a great province industrially,
there was yet great room for expansion as only about two per cent, of
ils area was under cultivation.
Inspector V. Z. Manning nfter referring to the much reputed educational policy of Ontario,  introduced
feels unjust criticism lias been made.
It is regretted thut this letter lias to
remain unpublished this week owing
to the pressure of other lato material.
Alderman Bronsdon is the first of
the citj council members to come out
with a statement for publication In
regard to the civic elections. Incidentally Mr. Bronsdon has received a
.letter this week from Hon. Jas, Murdock, minister of labor at Ottawa.
replying to a letter addressed to him
on May 28th lasi by Mr. Bronsdon
at the time Ai:-. Murdock's
withdrawal of funds from the Home
.Bank wus up before parliament. Mr.
; Murdoch claims that lie has been
completely vindicated by tho defeat

member preferring the charges, in

ami  all   the   Ontario  members were
lashed to indicote by small paper arrows, upon wliich they had placed
their names and places of birth, the

Some had forgotten so much about
their nativ province that they
thought Mr Manning had traced the
wrong one. Afler an examination
by  the judges, the prize,   (booby),
twas awarded to Mr. Jack Martin, his
Sticker being found pasted in the middle of  Lake  Huron, whereas Crnig-

I I'or the county of Bruce, Mr, Dan
: McDonald was a worthy exponent,
no point being untouched that added
to the glory of this far-famed county. O. Connor, Goodeve, Galliher
and M. A. McDonald were some of
her sons, and Jack Taylor, the great
athlete.
The Ontario Quartette, composed
of Messrs. E, Paterson, A. Word, A.
Bullock and Art Wallace, sang a
medley of old tunes whicb were well
I received. The Native Sons will be
Iookin g forward to hearing them
again.
! For Glengarry, Dr. MacKinnon
testified that he came from there and
that he was proud of it.
1 Mr. J. I''. Guimont made the hit
of the evening with bis humorous
Bcathlng criticism of the whole proceeding of the Ontario program. A
counter challenge to his criticism by
the leader of the Ontario forces involved o question of biology.
Of course the most pleasant feature of the evening was the refreshments, which were just right. Here
the sons of Ontario showed their
wisdom in that they got a lady from
P.E.I., Miss Duncan, of the Pine
Tree, to supply the good things to
eat.
P. M. MacPherson, who claims
Wooler as his home town, gave a
good story in proof of the greatness
,f Ontario. When challenged as to
.vhether Wooler or West Hastings
were on the map. he retorted that
West Hastings was very much on tbe
map.
