•The Red Widow'   — — -
Says Little
Aid to Mining
N. A. Wallinger Says Assistance Should Be of More
Practical Nature
(Special to The Herald)
Victoria, Feb. 14th.—Continuing
the budget debate laBt week, N. A
Wallinger, Conservative member for
Cranbrook, said that unlike the Liberal member for Skeena, he could not
congratulate the government for its
assistance to miners in his district.
If there had been marked progress
in some districts, there had been re
trogression In many others.
The Cranbrook member declared
that the prospector had practically
disappeared from this province, but
he felt thia valuable pioneer coi£ be
brought back again, and others with
him, through some form of govern-
0 ment encouragement. He advocated
the establishment of a form of investigation bureau which would supply information to miners and the
general public.
That Big Increase
Dealing with the industrial situation, Mr. Wallinger noted that the
government boasted of the increase
in the mining production in the past
year of about five millions. The Consolidated at Trail had increased its
production in that time from thirty-
two and a half millions to thirty-
seven millions, thus accounting for
nearly all the provincial increase.
Government assistance to the
prospectors at present amounted to
little, and there had been no new
mines of great importance found recently. There was a tremendous
area that had not been gone over at
all, and no reason why this should be.
He saw no reason why the government should not be of more assistance in this line.
A good assayer would be of use,
but at the same time a testing plant
would be of far more aid to the
prospector. In this way the best
methods of handling the ores could
be demonstrated. District engineers
with their experience could be of
gr^at assistance also in giving their
approval to the work as it was being
carried out.
Back to OM Policy
Mr. Wallinger said the government
members had not been fair in charging that the Conservative government
land policy had been unwise. Millions of acres of land had been sold,
and in 1915 there were 18,000 pre-
emptors who had taken up holdings
in the province. "I venture to say
if the minister of Innds could see a
land boom today he would welcome
it with open arms," remarked the
Cranbrook member. "Tho Conservative! sold 2,000,000 acres of land
for approximately f 10,000,000, and
this money wns used for public services. Without it the Conservative
government could not have embarked
upon the extensive road program
which was carried out, to the great
benefit of the province." He said
that the former government hnd set
aside 60,000 acres as university endowment lands, which would unquestionably go a long way towards offsetting the huge outlays bcing made
In connection with the U.B.C.
Should   Follow   Example
"If this government would tuke a
leaf out of the book of the Conservative administration, it would be
far better off," declared Mr. Wallinger. "We find today that few settlers
are  being placed  upon   the  lands."
He regretted that the price of
lands had decreased, declaring that in
the agricultural areas of British Columbia there was a natural resource
equalled by few countries, if any
in the world.
"If this government followed our
policy, the population of the province
would be doubled and trebled in the
next ten years," said Mr. Wallinger.
On the other hand, the administration
is now proposing to give away 16,
000,000 acres of land as a bonus for
the P.G.E. Railway—"that naked,
unashamed baby" unloaded on to the
people of this province by the present government.
That the government had improperly treated Major H, B. Hicks in discharging him from a position in the
government service at Crnnbrook,
was tlie declaration of A. Creery,
Vancouver City Provincial Party
member in the Legislature, during
the budget debute. No complaints
hail been mude against him, he suid,
and lie hud been told thnt his removnl
would be necessitated by governmental economy. This, Mr. Creery
said, cnme with poor grace ,from a
government that spent millions in
the manner explained to the house by
opposition members.
Mr Creery also addressed a series
of questions regarding the dismissal
of Major Hicks from thc government
service, to Hon T. D. Patullo, and in
answer to these questions was informed by the minister that Major Hicks
had been in the service of the water
rights branch for thirteen and a half
years, less the time he was overseas,
and that he had been dismissed when
the Cranbrook office was closed in
February, 1925. Since that time
surveys und other work had been carried on at intervals under the direction of Mr. William Blane. The
minister also stated that Major Hicks
had also been offered six months' employment in the year, at the time his
office here was closed.

extent of one lady," they should ask
Jack Martin. According to a very
close relative of Jack, of the fair
sex, he tried to steal a march on the
rest of thc rinks by failing to recognize the fact that there were lady
leads waiting to play, und tried one
game with four men against the lady
lead and three men. He went down
to ignominious defeat, and is now u
strong advocate of the "fuir" start
system when it comes to curling.

The spiel provided some very interesting games, proving beyond u
doubt that there are few avenues in
which the ladies, when they make an
effort, cannot equal or excel the men.

Friday evening* last the Cranbrook
and Wycliffe hockey teams met on
the local ice, when those present had
the pleasure of witnessing an interesting game. After the playing of
the three twenty-minute periods the
game wns a tie, '& all, and it wai decided to play two extra periods of
5 minutes each, which when concluded left the result the same.
The game started with a rush, and
it was not over thirty seconds before
South got one past Finley, in goal
for Crnnbrook, after a lot of end to
end play. Dafoe notched Wycliffe
second in about 4 minutes, and
Jones repeated soon after the face-
off for Wyciiffe's third.
It looked at this stage as if Cranbrook should resign, but the team
steadied down, and after ten minutes' play Lewis und Logan scored
two in rapid succession for Cranbrook. Wycliffe were working hard,
and Finley did some miraculous work
to stop a regular barrage of shots—
he stopped them with his hands, his
head, his back.
Second Period
Pelkey, Logan and Clapp got in
some good work; E. Hogarth featured
with some long lifts which made Ingy
Johren think it was a ball game,
dropping his stick and gazing into
the heavens for the flying disc,
crashing bang behind him letting him
know that the danger had passed,
In this period Johren wan called upon
many times to save, and made good.
For Wycliffe, Jones, who either does
not need wind or has un inexhaust
nble supply, kept going at a whirl
wind pace _all through the period.
Cranbrook, with n good supply of
spares, kept changing, and it took
some effort on the part of the Wy
Wcliffe players to keep pace with
them, .South and Dafoe doing well,
aa also the Staples boys. The eecond
period was scoreless.
Third    Period

Do you know the very best way to

A little Danderine on the scalp

absolutely CLEAN. But stroke a
few drops through the hair (use your
comb or a Danderl ne-dampened

Heartfelt   sympathy   goes   out   to
Mr.   and   Mrs.   Fred   Wiseman,   of
Garden   Ave.,  in  the  loss  of  their
baby,    Helena    Rose    Wiseman,    on
Wednesday  morning,   the  itth  inst.,
at the age of five months and nine
days.   The baby somehow contracted
the flu,  and her passing was  very
sudden.    The doctor and parents did
everything possible for thc little sufferer, but it  was all   of   no   avail.
Much sympathy is felt for the sorrowing   parents,   the   grandparents,
Mr. and Mrs. IJ. Lundeen, and uncle,
Mr, Ed. Lundeen, who was also the
baby's godfather, and other relatives.
A lily fair was called from earth
By He who sent this flower
To bloom nn earth a  little while,
And   then   in  henven  above
To shed a radiance  bright,
And light the pathway up to God,
To  realms*,  of  celestial   light!
The funeral was held on  Friday
afternoon, the  llth, from the residence   at   Marysville.      Rev.   James
Evans conducted the very impressive
services, which were eminently suitable for a baby's funeral. The hymn,
"Safe   in  thc  Arms  of  Jesus,"  was
sung, and Mr. Evans took the lesson
from the  18th chapter of St. Matthew, and in his' exhortation  spoke
of the certainty of death for us all.
The pall bearers were four little girls
dressed in white, Ednn Barclay, Muriel   Herchmer,   Edna   Johnson   and
Irene Cavanagh, by whom the beau
tiful  little white casket wns borne.
The  commitment  at  the  grave   was
also very comforting to the bereaved
ones.     "Nearer  My  God  to   Thee"
was sung, and then prayer closed the

The purpose ol llic infoi inatory double
is to obtain the best suit bid for the

should not be bid in answer to an informatory double unless you hold a
double stopper in the suit bid. For example, note thc problem hand given in

No score, rubber game. Z dealt and bid
one spade. If A doubled one spittle (informatory) and Y passed, what should
B bid? Should he bid one no-trump or
two hearts/ B should bid two hearts. He
baa only a liagle stopper in the suit bid
and a fair four card heart suit. If his
partner's double is sound, he should be
prepared for the heart bid. On the other
hand, it is very unlikely thut the double,
is prepared for the no-trump. For those
very apparent reasons, U shoult* bid
two hearts. In the actual hand, H (/id
one no-trump and made one odd while
if he had bid two hearts he would have
made four odd, game and rubber. Be
oa the lookout for hands of this type
and make it a rule to bid your long suit
in answer to an informatory double unless you hold a double stopper in the
suit doubled.

The Sun Life Assurance Company
of Canada continues to eclipse ita
own transcendent records. At the
annual meeting for 1927, which haa
iust been held, President T. B. Ma-
caulay waa able to report that the
total business paid for in 1926
amounted to $265,889,546, double
that of 1924—only two yeara ago.
The assurances In force now exceed
one und n quarter billions of dollars.
The Sun Life has become much
more than the greatest Canadian
company. It is one of the leading
Life Insurance companies of tho
world. Its growth Is equally arresting whether compared with Its own
record or with thc totals of insurance on this continent.   The increase
of its business at risk in 1926 ia
greater than thc entire business cnrried by tlie Sun Life at the outbreak
of tlio war. It has now more business in force than the total life assurance in force in all Canada, with
all companies, Canadian and foreign,
when war was declared. Latest reports indicate that the general increase in life insurance secured during 1926 in the United States and
Canada is six per cent in excess of
1925. The Sun Life's increase for
the year is 37-Vi per cent.
'Fully keeping step with this great
access of business, the assets of the
Company have increased during the
past twelve months by $42,105,000,
swelling the total to $345,251,000.
The Company's assets have multiplied five times in the last twelve
The Company's successful investment policy is reflected in an analysis
of its securities. Government valuators appraise a further increase in i
the excess value of the Company's
securities over cost, of nearly $7,-,
| 000,000. A profit of $1,700,000 has
been realized by the redemption or
■ sale of municipal debentures and
! other holdings which had risen to'
I high premiums. The rate earned on |
'■ the mean invested assets for the year
rose to the phenomenal figure of
O'.Cy per cent, this being contributed
to by dividend increases, bonuses (
I and other privileges granted on the,
' Company's holdings.
From the total surplus earned during the year, $20,457,077, the Com-'
pany has made large and prudent
appropriations. After making these j
allocations, which add substantially
to the unassailable security of the
Company, an addition of $5,715,064:
haa been added to undivided prof its, I
bringing  the   total  surplus   over   all
liabilities, contingency accounts audi
capital stock to $34,011,505.
Perhaps, however, thc features of,
the report of outstanding interest toj
the public are thoso relating particularly to benefits to policyholders.
During the year profits amounting to
$0,235,520 were paid or allotted to,
policyholders, this amount being
eight times in excess of the amount j
paid out ten years ago. For six years
past increases in profits to policyholders have been announced, resulting in a doubling of the profits scale
during that period. For the seventh
successive time a further increase is
announced. The great total of $38,-
576,453 has been paid out during the
year in respect of death claims, matured endowments, etc., bringing the
total so paid since organization to
The high rate of interest earned
enables  the  Company  to  distribute
profits on the assumption of BVi P**r
cent per annum being earned on the
Reserves. The same rate of interest
is being allotted to beneficiaries on
the proceeds of matured endowments
and death claims left with the Company. In this way again, policyholder.1- are participating in the great
prosperity of the Company.
Not the least gratifying portion of
the report is the fine showing of
business written within the Dominion.
Here again a new record is establish-
ed for Canada in a massive aggregate
of $1112,000,000 of paid assurances.
The Sun Lift* Company is as old as
the Dominion. But it has greater
claims to Canadian pride than that.
It is today one of the foremost of the
small group of great Canadian financial institutions which are making
Canada famous.

over twenty-three per cent.
Policies and group certificates now outstand
ing aggregate well in excess of half a million.
The figures relating to resources and earning
power are equally satisfactory.
The high quality and profitable character of
our investments has again been demonstrated.
As a result ol continued reduction in prevailing
rates of interest, and of satisfactory industrial
conditions, there has been a further rise in the
market values of our long-term bonds and of
our preferred and other stocks. The appraisal of
our securities made by the Government Insurance Department shows that the excess of
market values over cost has increaseddtiring the
year by 16,894,266.26. lu addition, thc sum
of $1,729,364.52 has Iieen realized as net profit
from the redemption or sale of municipal debentures and other securities which had risen to
high premiums. The rate of interest earned on
lhe mean invested assets has also risen to the
remarkable figure of 6.6') per cent, as the result
of substantial dividend increases, bonuses, and
stock  privileges received in  connection  with
many of our holdings. •
The quality of the investments listed in the
assets may be judged from the fact that on
99.53 per cent of the Ixmds und on 99.71 per
cent of the preferred slocks, not one dollar of interest or dividend is in arrear for even one day.
I In our common stocks thedivit'ends now being
received are greatly in excess of the dividends
payable on the same stocks al time of purchase.
The total surplus earned during the year
a mounted to $2(1,457,077.28. From this the
' ollowing appropriations have been made:
The sum of $2,000,000 has been deducted from the official valuation of our securities to provide for possible fluctuations in
market values. This raises tl.e amount set
aside for this pur|»se to $5,000,000.
In other words, the value at which our
securities are carried in the balance sheet is
$5,000,000 less than the appraisal made
by the Government authorities.
The account to provide for unforeseen contingencies has Iieen increased by $1,000,000
bringing thc total under this heading to
(. 11,000,000.
The book value uf our Head Office building
has heen written down by a further sum of
$250,000 though it certainly could not
be replaced at even its original cost.
An additional amount of $400,0110 has
been set aside to provide for greater longevity
of annuitants. Tne total held under this heading in excess of Government requirements,
is now $1,500,000.
The reserves on the newly acquired business of the Cleveland Life, and on other reassured policies, have bcen'raised to the same
high standard as that used for the valuation
of liabilities under our own contracts.
To our policyholders, profits have been
paid or allotted during the year to the amount
of $9,235,526.80.
After making these deductions and allocations an addition of $5,371,564.56 has been
made to the undivided profits. Ihe surplus
over all liabilities, contingency accounts and
capital stock, now stands at $34,011,565.25.
For six yean in succession we have increased
the profits to participating policyholders. During this period our profit scale has been doubled.
While the assurances in force have multiplied
two and a half times since 1920, the amount
paid or allotted as profits to policyholders has
multiplied five and a half times. We are gratified
to announce, for the seventh consecutive time,
a further increase in the scale of profits to be
distributed to our policyholders in the ensuing

The following resolution will be introduced in the provincial legislature
at an early date: "That a list of Biblical passages be selected by a committee representing the Department Of
Education and the church, and that
the School Act be amended to permit
of these being rend, followed by the
reading of the Lord's Prayer at the
opening or the closing of the school
day, attendance at these exercises
not to be compulsory."
There have been many attempts to
introduce the rending of the Bible
"without note or comment" in the
schools of this province. Up to the
present it has been the lack of unity
among the ehurchcB and the pnrtisan
spirit, which hns prevented this desirable legislation. At last it seems
possible to accomplish his, as the
churches arc now agreed aR to suitable passages, and the above resolution was favorably received by the
department of education. It stems
almost incredible that the Bible, the
world's greatest treasure house of
"English undefiled" should be banned
from the schools because of thc pitiful suspicion and distrust among professing Christians.

The mission for children closed last
week in the Presbyterian Church with
good attendance. Mr. Ware professed himself as well satisfied with the
results of his work here. Many people heard for the first time of the
work of the Scripture Union. This
organization gives direction and help
in the systematic daily reading of
the Bible. By the payment of ten
rents a card is issued, which contains
the daily portions for a year. The
local secretary i.s Mrs. Hugh Taylor,
who will be willing to give information on tho work of the Scripture
Union and enroll members.

A "Father nnd Son" banquet for
the two local Tuxis groups will be
held in the Baptist Church during
this week. A full report will be piven of this function next week. -The

with the high standard of training

About forty young people attended the meeting in the United Church
lut Tuesday, at the regular weekly
gatherings The gymnasium waa decorated very effectively with Valentine
designs. The speaker for the even-
inu was Father Ehman, who read a
most interesting paper, on "Fiction
U a Fine Art." He pointed out thc
misconception which many novelists
held of their art. But if a novel
■Acre to reach the position of fine
art, all debasing, wrong and unethical scenes must be removed. "Art
Tor art's sake" had no basis in reality.
Thc speaker urged young folks not to
linger over hooka and magazines
which, attempting to deal with
"realism," were in reality false, and
left a sense of discouragement behind. The highest art dealt with
truth, and there must be a place for
beauty and reverence in all fiction
which was true art. The speaker
was most cordially thanked for his
illuminating presentation of an interesting matter. Miss Brander's
group Inter put on several interesting
games and contests, which were
heartily enjoyed. Next week there

THK Lethbridge board of trade has been engaged
on a campaign to stimulate interest in that
body so as to make it as representative as possible,
and in assisting it the Lethbridge Herald gives a
page advertisement whieh sets out some very cogent
reasons why such an undertaking deserves the support of all people interested in the development of
the community. With the necessary change of the
name of the place, it is quite applicable to Cranbruok. antl provides fourteen tfouil reasons which
justify the existence of the board of trade, and indicates how much greater its usefulness could be if
all sections of the community Rave it undivided support.
Here are the rea.spns why the Cranbrook Hoard
of Trade deserves support:
N'o community ever went stale because its citizens were community boosters.
Xo community ever failed to progress when its
citizens possessed   faith.
Xo community ever made progress without
united effort of its citizens.
Cranbruok will grow aud prosper only as we
have faith in its future.
Cranbruok will progress only as we work together for its progress.
Cranbrouk will find its place "in the sun" only
through our efforts.
Cranbrook owes a duty  to  British Columbia.
Cranbruok can discharge that duty by serving
British Columbia.
Cranbrook trade territory looks to this city for
trade service.
Cranbrook has prospered iu the past hy supplying that service.
Cranbruok will grow bigger by supplying bigger, better metropolitan service.
The Board uf Trade is a community organization representing all interests.
The Board of Trade needs the support aud energy of every citizen in its task.
Join tlie Board of Trade, help Cranbrook press

Ril. POOLEY, the Conservative house leader
9 at Victoria, cleverly terms the recent budget
pronouncement of the government their "Valhalla-
dictory." There appears in it, be says, su much
tbat is obviously put there for popular appeal, and
there has been such an unwonted desire to meet the
wishes uf different interests representing the province, that there is only une interpretation to be
placed on it—there is an election in the offing.
Huge loans fur a substantial highway building program, desperate effurts to formulate a policy which
will result iu some change uf the relationship of
the P.G.E. tu the province, emphasis put on the results—meagre though they are—of the settlement
schemes of the government—all these, besides other
evidences of an unusual willingness to pay heed to
the popular demands, seem to point to the fact
that the government will most likely deem it wiser
to make it^ appeal this year, rather than go to the
full limit of its course, which would take till next
Evidence is also furthcoming from the Coast
tbat the election machinery is being quietly oiled up,
and it \> not likely that any more notice of the election will be given than is absolutely necessary,   An-
ither feature entering intu the matter is the question of the bye-election now pending fur Nurth
Okanagan. lt is felt thai there would be little
gained by the government going to the trouble of
letting another Conservative in there, when things
get down to thc uncomfortable margin uf one, as
happened this session, if the Conservatives got
the encouragement uf holding the seat, it would undoubtedly be taksn a? the pulse of the province in
Xo doubt the question of the time uf thc election will be thoroughly canvassed at the forthcoming Liberal provincial convention, when the government forces will urgauize thoroughly in readiness
to gird themselves for the fray.
WHILE there may never have been anv doubt
iu the mure moderate minds as to just what
the Native Sons of Canada really stood fur in regard to the proposed Diamond Jubilee celebration
uf Canada's confederation, they are to be commended for coining out wilh a signed statement iu repudiation i>( what purported to come from them iwo
weeks ago. It all goes to prove what harm unguarded statements can do and what uncontemplated
results sometimes ensue from saying just what one
thinks. The statement which was published in both
local papers two weeks ago was accepted by The
Herald as coming from one whu was presumed to
be acting for the order, and whose offer to undertake the presentation of such a statement as was
desired was accepted in all good faith. Such a statement would have been meant no less or more had
there been no signature attached to it, since the
origin of it would still have been pinned to the
urder whose name was mentioned in it. The signature of the Native Sons was attached to it in this
office because the Herald had been given to understand that the author of the statement drawn up
was doing so un behalf of the Native Sous. The
resolution proper, and to a formal repudiation of
what was added, undoubtedly strengthens thc contention that a signature should have been officially
placed on any former statement.
The Herald agrees that the proper course now
is to endeavor lo gel the best community co-operation possible for the undertaking proposed, to carry
it out in the best interests of all concerned, and
with due regard for the feelings entertained towards
such a step in Kimberley, where it may be said
they have a prior claim on the day. by virtue of
the fine celebrations they have staged there in past

THE figures contained in the annual statement
of the Cranbrook Public Library show very
clearly that without the aid the city has extended
in the form of a grant, the organization would be
unable tu carry on. Tbe same result could be
achieved by raising tbe membership fee to ahout
five dollars a year, and even that would not lie any
more than it i.s worth, but the low rate of two dol-
ars undoubtedly tends tu make the membership far
wider than it cottltl ever he expected to be at the
higher rate. The city is therefore making it possible with its grant, fur a larger number tu become
members, aud looking at it iu this light, there will
be little criticism offered if they see fit to renew
the grant, as is now being requested. The grant
last year just about covered the rent and necessary
•salaries, representing about half the expenditures,
the total outlay being very modest in comparison
to the scope which the library offers tu those who
care to take advantage of it.
While the time may not be ripe to consider the
city taking over the library in its entirety, it is
worth considering that the statement .shows it
would take only a fraction uf a mill to carry it,
which could very easily be taken care uf by ecuno-
mies in other directions without detriment to any
other iutersts of the ratepayers.

Important developments arc foreshadowed at the Boy Scout group of
claims on Hell Roaring Creek near
the St. Mary's River, in a statement
given to the Herald by \V. J. Scorgie,
engineer in charge of development,
who returned last Thursday from n
trip to Calgary, and the next dny returned to his quarters at the mine.
Mr. Scorgie went to Calgary to re?
port on the showing the development
of the past season has revealed, to
A. H. Mayland, well known cattle
man of the Albertn city, who is the
principal owner of the property.
Among others associated with him in
the undertaking arc Mrs. Bennett,
formerly of the Bennett ranch,
Marysville, ond N. A. Wallinger,
Mr. Scorgie reports three tunnels
have been driven on the property
to reach the ore body, nnd prove it
out. The top tunnel is in about 150
feet, ond is five to eight feet wide.
The second tunnel is six to 12 feet
wide, aud has been driven about 11.50
feet. The lowest tujirui is about 14
feet wide, nnd is in about 500 feet.
This work hus been going un for the
past year steadily, and there is at
present a crew of three men at work,
wi|h all supplies for the winter, and
work is still being pushed ahead. Xo

The   Diamond   Jubilee
Cranbrook, B.C.,
Feb. 15th, 1927.
To the Editor, Cranbrook Herald.
Cranbrook, B.C.
Dear Sir: As it. is evident, from
I articles whicli have appeared in the
; local press, that the origin of the
movement to celebrate Canada's Diamond Jubilee of Confederation is not
properly understood, we wish to place
before the readers oi' your paper the
gist of the matter as expressed in
imitations sent to secretaries of over
20 local societies on January 31st,
last, and thus endeavor to clear up
all possible misunderstanding. The
invitation read an follows:
"The matter of properly celebrat-
Ing Canada's Diamond Jubilee year is
receiving considerable thought by
must people in thin country at present. There appears to be variation
in ideas as tn details, but unanimity
iu regard to tbe main thought.
"IVopanitions in advance necessarily must be made for tbe whole
to be so organized as to attain the
greatest amount of results with a
minimum of effort and outlay.
"This time of the season finds all
organizations preparing plans for
the year and it is very difficult to
arrange a suitable date for a representative meeting without considerable advance notice. Secretaries of
organizations are the most effective
officials to enlist in organization work.
"Hence, the Native Som of Cans*
da, having undertaken to bring about
an effective general representative
committee to handle the Diamond
Jubilee celebration, have appointed
a preliminary committee for that purpose, and with the intention to have
their Assembly, No. 22, represented
on a general community committee
as one unit of the latter if such may
be brought about successfully. It is
hoped to enlist each and all organizations of this city and community
in the matter and to make the proposed celebration the best ever attempted and the most -effective by
having something tangible done that
will become a perpetual memento of
the occasion and possibly serve as a
general benefit for the public."
A meeting was held on February
2nd, in response to the foregoing invitation, and the twenty or so representatives of local bodies present,
decided to meet again on the 4th of
March, next, for the purpose of completing an organization and appointing permanent committees to carry

Responding tu tin* joint appeal
from the chairman nf tin* celebration committee of tin- Grand Council
of the Native Sons of Canada and
the Canadian Club uf Vancouver, the
council of the Cily of Cranbrook,
represented by Mayor Roberts, has
shown a desire in assist the movement and toward that end lias called
a meeting for the 1 Sth instant to discuss ways and means nf making the
celebration a success.
The aim of this committee throughout has been to secure lhe united,
whole-hearted cooperation of every

a general district affair. The committee will be behind any movement
tending to make it the best ever at-

the preliminary invitations sent out.
The various organizations may have
different opinions as to the details in
connection with the celebration but
should have unanimity in regard to
the main thought—namely, making
this a truly Canadian celebration.
We look forward to a successful

that will make it much ensier to complete the general organization at tbe

The board was called to meet at
the Department of Agriculture, Victoria, on Thursday. January 20th,
A full board was present and thn
executive officers oi last year were
re-elected, only one new member being on the board this year, Mr. W.
C. Little, of Doodcock, re pre sen ting
the Skeena and Bulkley districts.
A report was received from tlie
secretary as tu action on matters
handled throughout the year following initiative by the board at last
session. From this I ask you to note
a few of the items:
To   Watch   Amendments
From the sitting on November
130 items appeared in the minutes,
many of these calling for departmental changes iu regulations and
icveral for amendments to legislation. It has been found necessary
io keep close watch on the progress
uf sm*h amendments, as after everything stems settletl someone slips in
u joker lhat nullifies all the benefit
expected. On this account the secretary, being the man ou the ground,
is relied upon and expected by the
board to give the closest attention
to such matters. ln short, every
other interest in thc province having
a lobby on hand it is essential to Bfllf-
preservation that agriculture be not
asleep at the switch. Past bitter ex
peril nee has shown us that joker:
easily spoil good legislation. A full
lii-t of all legislative resolutions was
printed and 760 copies issued, but the
farmers of B.C. at last awakening to
the importance of this work, the de
mand required another !>00 to be
made. A larger number of copies
will be issued this year, and the board
member of each district will appreciate a demand foi* them, as showing
that the work is being followed with
interest by the men for whom this
work is undertaken.
At the recent sitting of the board,
January 20th, 21st and 22nd won
given to work that was exclusively
Farmers' Institute matter.
Board is Broadened
On Monday, January 24th, for the
week we had with us Ir* invitation
the presidents of the B.C. Fruit
Growers, B.C. Stock Breeders, B.C
Dairymen and B.C. Poultry Assoeia
tions, and also Messrs. Copeman and
Niel, of Cowichan Agricultural Association, former leaders in the U.F.
movement, who, at that time, were
asked to sit on behalf of that organization and have since there each year
been requested to continue, both
being very able men with broad experience, highly educated and thoroughly "country-minded," and their
abilit- to present matters clearly has
been highly valued by the elected
members of the board.
During this week all matters
pecially dealing with the four above
specialized interests wore taken up,
olso all game matters, Messrs. Cope-
man, Neil and the board secretary,
Mr. Whitney Griffiths, being especially conversant with the more troublesome phases of matters coming under
the Game Act. During the whole
sitting about one hundred and fifty
resolutions from thc eight centrals or
from the annual meetings of the
specialized branches were deolt with,
Some went to different departments
of the public service, some referred
back to tho home central for local
action, a few to federal authorities,
and ten were selected to go to the
select standing committee on agriculture as entailin*" changes in legislation or protests against changes
that other interests were urging.
Subjects  Taken   Up
The following is the list thus presented at the several hearings given,
some of which were very brief:
1. Endorsement of B.C. Fruit
Growers proposed legislation on orderly marketing of farm products,
2. Request that poultry be placed
on same status as sheep, under Sheep
Protection Act, as to compensation
for destruction by dogs.
8. Wider enforcement of collection of dog taxes in order to meet
changed conditions when No. 2
carried out.
4. Enforcement of grinding to
destroy weed seeds before elevator
screenings are sold. This was too
long to repeat here, but passed in
amended form.
5. Canadian Railway Companies
are asking the railway commission to
withdraw free or partial transportn
tion of attendants with live stock
shipments. This resolution protested against such curtailment of existing privileges and also asked that with
shipments of exhibition or dairy
cattle two attendant,,* be allowed to
each car.
tl. That fee for incorporation
of Farmers' or Women's Institutes
be set nt $5.00.
7. That in future per capita
grant to Farmers' and Women's Institutes be paid to as low n membership at ten. Formerly this was fif.
teen, but in outlaying sections often
thero are not fifteen people available, and an insitute of ten had to
struggle along without any grant,
when it needs were no doubt greater
than  the larger institutes.
8. A request for departmental
assistance to the tobacco industry,
which work for thc past several years
in the Okanagan haH proved to be
capable of great enlargement and
production of a first class quality of
leaf. The assistance needed seems
to be in the erection of curing houses
wliich, until the acreage develops,
a heavy charge on beginners.
\i. Game matters. Jhis item in-
vluded nine sub-heads:
Farmer,   and   Game   Matters
1. Protection to be removed from
hand-tailed pigeons, of interest only
to Coast districts.
2. Change in definition of form
er, ns undor present regulations a
man has no right to protect his crops
from destruction by gamo unless his
major income was from his farm,
i.e., a beginner getting most or nil
hiH income in some other wny could
not qualify as a farmer under the
Game Act. Resolution asks it to
read: "A person who is a leasee or
owner of land in the province and
who is growing thereon nnv crops or
livestock with a view to profit.'*
3. That n bounty of not less than
$7.50 be placed on coyotes, including pups, in the summer senson, from
May 1st to October 1st, when pelts
are worthless.
4. Thut at least fifty per cent of
game board be practical farmers recognized as such,
5. Thnt production of a trapper's
licence shnll not he required from npplicant for n bounty on any vermin or
predatory animal secured by trapping
or other means.
0.    That a bounty he placed on
the horned owl and   on   the   three
species of hawks that prey chiefly
on poultry and feathered game.
7. That the free farmers game
licence be as easily available as the
paid licence.
8. That we oppose any change in
Game Act as relating to pheasants
and deer actually   destroying crops.
9. That no licence be necessary
to destroy bears within or near
settled areas.
10. A request for legislation to
prevent irresponsible bodies from
scattering seed on highways, as where
this has been done it is found that
such seed contained mnny species of
noxious weeds.
All the above were presented in
detail, each being formally spoken to
by the board members most familiar
with the matters in hand, and all
were accepted as presented of with
very slight change.
In those matters coming under the
Game Act, the legislative committee
reported favorably on each. On
number 4, re furmers on Game
Board, they recommended three farm-
era on the board as at present, constituted of seven members.
Recommendation Adopted
The board feels especially pleased
with the acceptance of the $7.50
bounty on coyotes in summer, as all
tho members from the upper country
had strong resolutions on this, backed by whole files of correspondence
on losses sustained, which have increased very much in the last few
On Saturday, January 29th, the
Game Board and legislative committee held a sitting, and both Advisory
Board and legislative committee attended to thresh out these questions
with its members, nnd, we feel, with
good results.
Some of our requests are opposed
by city members of gnme clubs at
the coast, but the feeling of the
Agricultural Committee after hearing
the Advisory Board members on
these points, was thnt the Interest
of thc furmer in the game raised on
his land or doing injury on it was
paramount to that of any other interest in the community.
It may come as news to many of
us that the growing of high class
flower and other seeds is rapidly becoming an important industry on
Vancouver Island, and in some cases
the foundation seed shipped from
England, to be grown under contract,
!s insured for as high us one dollar
per feed by the owners in England.
The question of whether a man grow-
ing this crop shnll be nble to shoot
a marauding pheasant can easily be
seen to be of importance to him.
Well  Received
I must assure the institute members in East Kootenay that we had
a most favorable reception to nil our
requests by the Agricultural Committee, and members of every pnrty
.hereon gave us the most sympathetic
attention, and In mnny cases assistance in presenting our cases.
The board as a whoie adjourned on
Satuiday, January 29th, but as some
■if the general items in above list
had not yet been brought before the
jommittee, the East Kootenay member and the Kamloops' member, and
Mr. Wm. Harrison, who is also president of the B.C. Woolgrowers' Association, were made a committee to
attend sittings of the Agricultural
Committee held on February Ist and
2nd, thus entailing a full two weeks
of actual work for us.
During the time in attendance at
he board, sittings were continuous
aeh day from 9.30 to 12.30 and
1,15 to 5.30, or on most days six,
and mnny evenings given to special
work by committees from the board
proposing matter for the following
lays for presentation to some minister or his deputy.
Committees have been named to
attend future sittings of Tariff and
Railway Boards.
Local  Stand  Endorsed
Local resolutions from East Kootenay Central were practically all
:ndorsed; the requested concession
on purchase of pure bred sires in Alberta under same privileges ns institutes have on B.C. stock, was
passed; stock matters will be improved; potato beetle work will be
put ou same basis as powder, I feel
certain, and if the School Act is opened, our resolutions on that will be
considered then.
During our sitting the report of
the survey of Orientals and their interests in B.C., which our board in
1924 and 1925 asked to have made,
was presented, and it Is an eye-opener to people who are not keeping tab
on this serious matter. It contains
reliable data on the proportion and
numbers of Orientals in practically
every phase of B.C. life and trade,
'and holding, schools and fishing,
the percentage of trade licences held
by them in different businesses, the
number employed in each industry,
with, in each case, rate of increase,
und a very comprehensive chart setting it all out very clearly. I only
manuged to get one copy of the advance issue, but can now obtain more
if any one desires.
Among the pleasanter phases of
lhe sittings wus nn invitation to thc
board from Lieut.-Gov. Bruce to visit
him on the afternoon of January
27th at Government House, where
we were made very welcome by His
Honor and Miss Mackenzie, and spent
i very enjoyable hour or so.
On Tuesday of the Bamc week the
members of the Advisory Board gave
H luncheon at Spencers to His Honor
Mr. Bruce and the Minister of Agri-
culture, to which also were invited
the members of the Agricultural
Committee of the House, the Deputy
Minister of Agriculture, thc Grazing
Commissioner, the Dairy Commissioner, the Live Stock Commissioner, the
heads of the specialized branches,
Mr. Fairbarn, secretary to thc Lieut.-
Governor, and the president of the
Wor, rVs Institutes of B.C., Mrs.
I must ulso acknowledge the cour-
tesy of the three members of the
Legislative Assembly for East Kootonay, thc Hon. Mr. Buckham, Mr.,
Wallinger and Mr. Uphill, each of'
whom assured me that matters passed
by our hoard to and through the
Agricultural Committee would have
their earnest assistance when coming
the floor of the House.
Muny matters of greater or lesser
interest to some part of East Kootenay were also dealt with, but cannot be touched upon in this report,
but a full and formal report on such
will come along later from the secretary's office, and each local institute
will get a copy,
Representative from Dist I.

The Lumberton hockey team played a return game at Wycliffe on j
Thursday. The game was a close one,
the score being four goals each at j
the end of the third period. It wa3
necessary to play overtime to decide,
the game, and the Wycliffe team tai-1
lied once in this period, making the'
final score, Wycliffe 5, Lumberton 4.
The regular Scout meeting was
held on Thursday night. Two more
members pnssed their Kim's Game
test, Jack Robertson and Vincent
Downey. Vincent made the best
showing so far in this teat, remembering nineteen out of the twenty-
four objects. Further instruction in
first aid work was given by Jim
Bartle, and the boys will all be ready
for their test In this subject within
a week or two. Obstacle relay raccB
and other games were played during
the latter part of the evening.
Frank Kossoviteh loft here on

A daughter was born to Mr. nnd
Mrs. Garnet Avery on Sunday last,
at the St. Eugene Hospital. Mother

On Sunday some of the hockey
players went down to Moyie and
played a game with the team there,
Moyie beat them to thc tune of 3
to 0. Three or four of the Lumber-
ton regular team, however, did not
rnnk'1 the trip and this weakened the
team considerably. The Moyie team
put up a good, clean game.

A farewell party for Alex Stewart
was held last Mondhy evening at
the home of Mr. P. Klinestiver. A
jolly evening was spent playing
cards. Towards the close of
the evening, Jake Jacobson made
a presentation to Alex of a sil
ver cigarette cuse on behalf of a
number of his friends in Lumberton.
Alex has been with the B. C. Spruce
Mill8 for several years, and has a

which will bring the number of uniforms up to twelve. The Grizzly
patrol wore given further instruction
in first aid work by Jim Bartle, while
the Stags tried their Kim's Game
tests. Only one. P.L. Gordon Trusler, was successful in passing, although several others mnde a good
showing. After the Kim's Game

The Lumberton hockev team made
a trip to Wycliffe recently and played the Wycliffe team. The final results were 7 to 5 in favor of the
latter team. A return game was
played in Lumberton, and a good
crowd of spectators were on hand to
witness thc struggle. Both teams
played a good brand of clean hockey
and put up an interesting exhibition.
The Wycliffe team again proved the
stronger, downing the locals with a
score of 5 to 3. Bob Mitchell, playing for the local team, gave the crowd
a thrill at the beginning of the game,
when he got the puck at the face-
off and headed straight for the Wycliffe goal for the first tally. The
puck was in the net before the crowd
realized the game had begun.
At the last regular meeting of the
Lumberton Club six tables of cards
were at play. The prize winners
were: ladies' first, Mrs. Hutchison;

Mr. and Mrs. Tom Haney, of
Barons, Alta., arrived in Wardner
this week on a few weeks' visit at the
ranch homes of Mra. Haney's parents,

here after a journey to Seattle,
where Mrs. Tom Haney has been

On Saturday evening the members
of the Wardner bridge club met at
the home of Mr. and Mrs. H. Headdon, where an enjoyable evening was
spent. St. Valentines was the motif
for the decorations, the supper table
also carrying out the plan. Foot
tables were in play during the evening, the prizes for which were won
by MisB Jennie Hopkins, who was
awarded a beautiful bud vase for a
high score of 1600, while B. 0. Iverson won the gentlemen's prize, a
bronze ash tray. Supper was served
at midnight, while after the repast
a novel guessing competition was introduced by the hostess, the prize for
thc latter being awarded Mrs. Paul
sStorey. Those present included Mr.
and Mrs. Vic Lundbum, Mr. and Mrs.
Paul Storey, Mrs. Miller, Mr. and
Mrs. J. Thompson, Mr. and Mrs.
J. Wynne, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Harris,
Mr. and Mrs, J. Harris, Mr. and Mrs.

Mr. and Mrs. Tom Haney left on
Priday for Yahk, where they spent
a few days visiting at the home of
Mrs. Howard Haney and family, returning to Wardner on Monday,
The many Wardner friends Mr.
and Mrs. Carl Lovick, of Llbby,
Mont, were immeasurably thoeked
Monday to learn of the death of Mr.
Lovick, which took place at two p.m,
on Sunday, at the General Hospital,
Bonner's Ferry, after an Illness lasting several months. Although local
friends, including the father, Mr.
Jack Hafstad, snr., and grandparents,
Mr., and Mrs. A. Olsen. and Mrs.
Lovick, were acquainted with the
fact of Mr. Lovick't illnesa, death was
totally unexpected, more especially
as he had appeared to be gaining in
strength for the past two or three
months, even the doctors expressing
the hope of a complete cure In the
near future. At present the actual
cause of death is not known locally, but it is attributed to a weak
heart, which was his most serious
ailment. Mr. Hafstad and Mrs. Olsen
left on Tuesday morning for Libby,
to be with their daughter In her bereavement. It is expected also that
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Thompson and
Tony Thompson will also leave for
Libby about Wednesday to attend
the funeral. The many local friends
of Mrs. Lovick are sending many
expressions of their deep sympathy to

also left two children, Karl and Geneva, aged six and four years.

A meeting of the Wardner Parent
Teacher Association was held in the
Club Hall on Thursday afternoon.
Owing to the prevalence of flu and
other sickness, the meeting was not
very well attended, only about half
the members being present, although
several visitors helped to swell the
number. The president, Mrs. A. J.
H. Donahoe, in the chair, the meeting opened as usual by the singing
of "0 Canada." Reports of the
secretaries and treasurer were mad,
approved and passed, while various
matters of business were also placed
before the members. Since about
one-half of the members are American, either by nationality or by marriage, a motion was made to the effect that the present constitution be
accepted with amendments, one of
these being that Americans be allowed to hold the presidential office if
required. This motion was forwarded to the Parent Teacher Federation
of Vancouver, of which the local organization is a branch, for approval,
and will again be brought before the
members at the March meeting. Thc
resignation of Mrs. Charles Hamrin,
as social convenor, was read before
the members, accepted and Mrs.
Frank Thompson nominated as Mrs.
Hamrin's successor. Mrs. Thompson
being unavoidably absent from the
meeting, the nomination was also
held over to the next meeting, when
Mrs. Thompson will be again offered
the nomination. Following the business meeting, which closed by sing-
ino* the National Anthem, refreshments were served.

Red River EiptdiHen
It may be said that the results of
a wise policy of conciliation were in
no small measure destroyed by the
glaring and unnecessary Iniudicious-
nvsh nf the public handshaking at St,
Boniface. Nothing could more effectively have disarmed the spirit of
vindictiveness at Winnipeg or secured the favor of the Imperial government than loyal French co-operation,
which, it is now seen, was deliberate
nnd in all Rood faith. The tardiness
of the mobilization of the Metia, tog-ether with the compromising manner of the premature official recognition of their services, invited upon
both the governor and the Metia
criticism that was much leas than
just and far from generous. That
Kiel had used his influence not without result in organizing his former
colleague can admit of no doubt The
fact that it wu in his own interests
no to act in the case of amnesty, and
that from the first subservience to
the erratic "generals" of the Fenian
movement, could offer few permanent
inducements either to Kiel's personal
ambition or to the cause of French
nationality in Manitoba, does not detract from the negative results, at
least, of that demonstration. Sue-
cess by the Fenians waa impossible
with less than active support from the
well-armed and well-trained Metis. It
is true that delegates from the council of the M$tis were sent to the
secret council of the Fenian party;
but the recently published minutes
of the meetings of the Metis in October (Aux de Histoire Manitobaine,
Rev. A. G. Morice, O.M.I., U Nov-
elle France, Quebec, 1907-8). Father Morice 1 met some yeara ago at
Quesnel, on his way down from the
north. In his history of Northern
British Columbia, in a chapter at the
end of the book, he attacked the state-
merit of Dr. Bryce, professor of Winnipeg University, that O'Donoghue
was a graduate of a college of the
Roman Catholic Church. I found
Father Morice an effable, cultured
gentleman, and what he says may be
correct, but Dr. Bryce spent many
years in Manitoba and no doubt that
was the prevailing opinion.
Proof that the decision to support the provincial government waa
reached before the result of the delegation to the American border waa
known, though not before the enlightening correspondence between
the governor and Pere Richot Gov-
ernor Archibald refused even fn 1874
to believe that "if the half-breeds
had taken a different course the province would now be in our possession."
Looking Backward
It seems impossible at thla day to
admit that an ill-considered move,
even with the aid of marauding railroad navvies from Minnesota, could
have contended successfully with tbe
forces of the British Empire and
the active and avowed official co-operation of the United States. The
good judgment of Riel, at least, and
the general attitude of the Metis are
alike unmistakable. Even if, aa Rial
suggested, none could expect them
to ho "enthusiastic," they had at
least been "devoted" before it wm
known that the "raid" had- completely and Ignominlously failed.
Governor Archibald said Uat ih*
yrevaUteff   '
French, as among the British, was
that there was to be a fresh raid, and
that the action of the French was not
based on thc idea that the raid was
over. Bishop Tache wrote: "I also
have taken pains to find out the
truth, and I have no hesitation to
repeat that I am entirely satisfied
that the Metis acted in perfect good
After the official attitude of Governor Archibald, the amnesty question became more than ever the
shuttlecock of party politics, The
opposition in Ontario exploited the issue to embarrass the federal government and to drive the provincial government of Sanfield Macdonald from
office. The federa1 government
avowed their support of amnesty in
private, preserved in public an attitude of virtuous indignation against
the slayers of Scott, and supplied
money to Bishop Tache to ward off
their embarrassment by hiring the
chief offenders to leave the country.
The Amnesty
When news reached Winnipeg that
the government of Ontario had offered a reward of $6000 for the conviction of the "murderers of Thomas
Scott," Governor Archibald wrote of
renewed meetings of the Metis in
each French parish with but one feeling on the subject. Archibald wrote
tb Cartier on February 24th, 1872:
"Happily it is difficult to find a magistrate who does not hesitate to issue
warants which may lead to fatal consequences,".
Tbe difficulties were increased by
the temerity of Riel himself. His
candidature for the House of Commons for Provencher in 1872 was
avoided only by strong persuasion
and the consent of Sir George Car-
tier to represent the constituency.
At the death of Cartier, Riel was
elected by acclamation at a time
when the machinery of the court*
had at last been set in motion and
his colleague, Lepine, was being
tried for the death of Scott The defence of Lepine before a jury almost exclusively of Metis was conducted with great brilliance by J. A.
Chapleau and Joseph Royal, and the
verdict of guilty forced the amnesty
question before the government for
a final decision.
Riel  Takes  the Oath
Reil. an outlaw after the conviction of Lepine, had fled the country,
but having been elected for the House
of Commons after the resignation of
the Macdonald administration, he had
the hardihood to sign the register
of members and to take oath before
his identity was generally known.
Warned by the intense indignation of
the members, Riel quickly disappeared, and having refused to attend in
his place, he was expelled from the
house by a majority of fifty-five
Tbe MacKeniie government, however, found the amnesty question as
troublesome when in power at Ottawa as they had found it useful in
opposition. The results of inquiry
by committee, moved by Donald A.
Smith, proved of greater value to the
historical investigator than to  a per-
filexed ministry. Tho issue was at
ut brought to a decision only by the
direct interference of the Governor-

were about evenly matched in weight '.
and size it was noticed us they took
their positions on   the  ico   for the
play-off, Wycliffe having a shade of
advantage in South and Johren, big
men and good  players, in the positions of centre and goalie respectively,     However, thc former was mora
than made up for hy the local centre, Andy Powell, who ulthough about
half the else ef his opponent proved
himself irttieh quicker and a whirlwind   on   skatss.   who   continually
wrested the puck  from  the  latter.
Scoring was slow  in the  first  two
periods, in contrast to the play, which
wag the fastest seen this vear on local ice.    Wardner begun the scoring,
when  Frank   Moore   took  the   puck
away    down    the    ice,    successfully
breaking  through   the  Wycliffe   defence  and  taking  a  position  about
two or three  yards  distant, shot  a
splendid drive past Johren into goal,
shortly after commencing the game.
The locals again scored just before
the close of the first period, Frank
Moore ngain   making   a   goal,   this
time on an assist from Harry More,
playiny in beautiful combination almost the length of the ice, making
splendid   passes  at  times.     At  thc
whistle "closing   the    first    period,
the score Btood 2-0 in favor of the
local team.    When again taking the
ice, after a ten-minute rest period,
thc teams showed no diminishing in
(heir speed.    During this period the
local  team were placed on defence
a great deal, Wycliffe keeping most
of the play around the locnl  goal,
and  managed  by  good  combination
work, accompanied by well-balanced
rushes, to place two goals, thus evening up the tally.    Not to be outdone, however, the locals again managed to break through their opponents' defence, and again scored, making the score 3-2, still in their favor.
This last score was made with the assistance   of  good   luck,   however,   a
Wycliffe player getting between the
goalie and the puck, hiding it from
the latter, with the result that Powell
of thc locals shot into goal with little
interference.    This ended the second
period.    The  third  proved a catastrophe for Wycliffe as fnr as scoring
was concerned, Wnrdner keeping the
game going continually in front of
their opponents' goal, Bcoring so often that it wns almost impossible to
see who was mnking the shots, the
locnls making seven goals during thc
twenty   minutes of the  lust period.
Twice only did Wycliffe manage to
break through, taking the puck down
:he  ice and scoring each time, the
final tally reading 10-6 in favor of

Moore on the forward lino wore re-
ponsihlc for most of the goals, play-
ig in beautiful combination, backing
p Poweli in strong fashion.   The deli nee,    Gillis    (Capt.)    and    Itollie
Thompson (the lutter being relieved
tccasionally   by   Beatty)   proved   a
ombination which was hard to get
fast.    Alec  Daye  in goal played a
rood game, blocking  a great many
;ood Wycliffe shots.   On the Wycliffe
.cam,   South   was   undoubtedly   thc
-,tar  of the game, ably  backed   by

Mr. nnd Mrs. A. ('. Lewis are expected to reach the city on Saturday
from Trail, and will commence that
evening on rehearsal for "The Red
Widow," which in to he presented under thc auspices of the Gyro Club
on March 8f *1 and B, at the Auditorium. Rehearsals are to be held
at the Masonic Hall. Mr. Lewis has
just completed this week four presentations of "The Beauty Shop," ot
Trail and Nelson, which was so successfully given here last year under
Gyro auspices.
John Fingal Smith, well known in
this city, is a year older this week
than he was a week ago. Already
passing the allotted span of three
score yenrs nud ten, he celebrated
on Tuesday hi8 eightieth birthday,
and as he snys, seems good for
many more yet. Few people in this
country, and fewer still native Canadians, can look back over such n
long flight of years and still retain
such clear recollections of events of
national importance, and recall important details of momentous events
from fifty to seventy-five years ago.
Mr. Smith is one of the oldest pioneers in the province. He came to
Victoria in 1876, going overland
from eastern Cunada to Sacramento,
and thence to San Francisco, and up
the coast. He was school teaching,
first at the provincial capital, and in
the nineties went up into the Cariboo
country, teaching there at Quesnel
and various points, and meeting with
many varied and interesting experiences there, which he still recalls
vividly. During these early years
of the history of the province he
came in touch with many well known
personalities, some of whom lie came
to know quite intimately, and concerning whom he can relate many
hitherto unpublished episodes. Coming to Fort Steele in about 1900, he
was teaching there for a few years,
and then went into the government
office there, which wtis before the
removal of the administrative centre
to Crnnbrook. After some years in
the government service he retired on
a pension, but has not allowed himself to become inactive, which is perhaps the secret of his continued good
health. Out every day, he walks two
or three miles briskly, and thinks nothing of it. In between times hi
manages to read everything in sight
in the form of newspapers, and
fur better informed on questions of
the day, and able to discuss them,
than  many half his age.
Mr. Smith enjoys better health, he
says, than his twin brother, who is
still at the old family home, not far
from Charlottetown, P.E.I., where
they were born. The two brothers
probably constitute the oldest living
twins in Canada, and the fact that
the family is a long lived one is evidenced from the fact that there is
also a widowed sister, eighty-three
years of age, still living ut the old
It is difficult for anyone who has
not lived in nny other age than the
one which has seen autos, radios,
aeroplanes, submarines nnd other recent inventions, to realize what life
was before the coming of these
things, but Mr. Smith con cast his
memory back three-quarters of a
century and recall existence in times
that to hear of them do not seem
quite as complex as at present, but
which it is nevertheless quite apparent had their own particular problems calling for farsightedness nnd
resourco just as at the present time.
Perhaps it would not be quite right
to say that Mr. Smith attributes his
ontinued good health to the fact that
he is an Orangeman, a loyal Presbyterian and a staunch Conservative,
but his many friends in extending
their congratulations to him, certainly hope that his shadow will not
grow less, and that he may be seen
active and healthy on the streets
for  many  years  yet.
One of the most prized possessions
of Mr. and Mrs. Smith is a handsome clock which was presented to
them two or three years ago by the
pioneers' gathering which took place
in Vancouver, their distinction being
the oldest living pioneer couple in
the province. Mrs. Smith, who
before her marriage was a Miss
Bailey, herself comes from one of
the pioneer families of Victoria.

seemed to have reached the last lap
n a good sized post-beer war, and
though they attempted to make a
getaway in a sleigh when accosted,
they were pursued by Mr. Ryckman
and brought back to the city. Mondny they were both up before the
magistrate and charged with being
drunk, nnd nlso with having liquor in
i heir possession. They were fined
"■-"> or a month in jail on the first
charge, while the second charge was
eld over till the source of their supply had been investigated. As a re-
ult of this Timothy Curne was arrested on Tuesday by Constables
Ryckman and Macrae, and charged
with supplying liquor to Indians,
und the following day William Ad-
lison was arrested by Constable
Ryckman and Chief Halcrow on a
imilur charge. These cases were
heard on Wednesday, and resulted in
the latter being fined $100 or three
months in jail, while the former was
discharged, on account of conflicting
evidence. On the charge of having
liquor in their possession, which was
proved by the remains of a* good
■ized supply seized at the time of
their arrest, the Indians were assessed an additional $25 fine, or another month in jail.
that thc .community can enjoy and
be proud of.
There is plenty of talent in Cranbrook, and the faithfulness of the
cast of "The Beauty Shop" was a
tribute to the community and to the
director, Mr. Lewis, As well as an
evidence of the interest taken in
this enjoyable work.
The days when large professional
companies went on the road are gone,
and the only way for a small town
to have the opportunity to see these
big city productions is the way being followed by the Gyro Club. That
is, to engage a first class director,
who provides music, costumes and
scenery, pays the heavy royalty and
recruits the east locally.
As announced elsewhere, the rehearsals for "The Red Widow" will
commence on Saturday evening at

The Lutheran Women's Mission
Society of Yahk met Tuesday afternoon, February' 15th, at the homo

address by Rev. A. G. Anderson was
rendered. At the business session it
was decided to hold the monthly
meeting for March on a Monday afternoon, instead of Tuesday as heretofore. The hostess, Mrs. Ed. Anderson, served refreshments. The
meeting; was most enjoyable, but on j
account of the snowstorm only a few
ventured out to the meeting. The
following braved the weather and
were present: Mesdames Rougstad,
SimpBtad, Evjen, Olson and the hostess, Mrs. Ed. Anderson, and Rev.
A. G. Anderson. Mrs. Evjen invited

Monday, March Uth, and the invitation was gladly accepted. -i
The organization meeting was
held at the home of Mrs. Rougstad
in January. The Society decided to
work for the welfare of members
and others in heed as the Society
may be able to help, and to further
the work of the Church at home and
abroad. This meeting was very
pleasant, but many were prevented
from attending on account of the
