with a space intervening between the

that wholesale gains have been
made at the expense of the government by Conservatives, Independents and Labor candidates, and in no instance have
the government forces been
able to capture a seat formerly
held by an opposition member.
Conservative gains have been
|made in the following ridings:
Rossland, Victoria (one seat)
Slocan, Dewdney and Yale. In
still other ridings, including
Kaslo, where the result is still
j unobtainable, although the seat
was conceded to Col. Lister,
Conservative, these gains are
likely to be further swelled.
The independents made two
gains at the expense of the go

where Hanes captured the seat,
and In Comox, where Menzies
came out on top.
Labor scored a notable victory at Fernie, where Uphill,
the Labor nominee, headed the
poll, with Herchmer, Conservative, second, and Pisher, the sitting Liberal member, at the foot
of the list. The second Labor
gain was in South Vancouver,
where Neelands went in
In Cranbrook intense excitement prevailed towards evening, as the time drew near for
declaring the poll. Both parties worked hard to get out the
maximum vote, and the poll locally was a heavy one, close on
eleven hundred of the registered voters turning out to exercise their franchise. About
nine o'clock the returns began
to come in, the first being from
Wardner, which gave Dr. King

When the result,.,'.-' the vote
in the constituency became
known as far as possible, and
it was apparent that Mr. Caven
had more than a fighting
chance of coming out on top
when the absentee vote is coun
jted in, his supporters gave him
three ringing cheers, and the
candidate was made to take the
platform. In a brief speech
Mr. Caven thanked all those
who had helped him on to what
now looked like a victory. He
showed how In the city he had
secured a majority In spite of
the difficulties. He especially
thanked the ladles for their
part in the fight, and predicted
that the absentee vote would
| show him a majority more than
enough to reverse the result as
It stood at present.

A big crowd had gathered at
the committee rooms to hear
the results, and the Edison
Theatre, Conservative headquarters, was packed by the
lime the results from the clly
were available. A scene of
wild enthusiasm ensued when
the word came that the city had
accorded Mr. Caven a majority,
the figures glvon out being 537
for Mr. Caven and 519 for Dr.
King. This represents a hig
turnover in the city as agaliiBt

Vancouver, Dec. 2 (Afternoon). — A careful computation
of all the returns available, gives the following results, subject
I always to the deferred or absentee vote:
Liberals certain: Vancouvei
(5), Victoria (3), .New Westminster, Nanaimo, Chllllwaok
Columbia, Delta, Greenwood,
the Islands, Kamloops, North
Okanagan, Revelstoke (acclamation), Saanicb, Prince Rupert
and Alberni.
Conservatives certain: Vancouver, Victoria, Dewdney, Esquimau, Nelson, Richmond,
Slocan, South Okanagan, Trail,
Yale and Siniilkameen.
Independents elected: Cow-
llchan, North Vancouver and
Labor elected: Fernie and
South Vancouver.
Socialist elected — Newcas
Liberals probably elected —
Cariboo and Omineca.
Conservatives probably elected — Grand Forks, Kaslo and
Uncertain — Cranbrook.
Incomplete, but probably Liberal — Atlin and Fort George.
In Vancouver the successful
candidates   were   Mrs.   Ralph
Smith, Capt. Ian Mackenzie, J.
W. deB. Farris. attorney-gener-
lal, M. A. Macdonald, Jas. Ramsay and Mr. Bowser. Mrs. Smith
polled a record vote of 17,047, |
almost 4,000 ahead of the second candidate.    Mr. Bowser re-
| ceived 11,645, and Is about 1,200
ahead of Dougherty, so that the
absentee vote can hardly affect
the result.
In Victoria the final figures

Buckham expects a majority of 150

In Delta, which was at first reported to go to the Conservatives, the Liberal majority is very small, and the
same is true of Dewdney, where Ca-

to bo holding the   scat by only 32.
Esquimau again returned Pooley.
Conservative, by 315.
At Kamloops. early reports indicated Crawford, Conservative, leading
over Anderson, Liberal, but later reports changed the result over, and the
Liberal majority will probably run
ahout 219.
Canon Hincheliffe who secured a
teat In Victoria by a good majority,
coming second ln the count, displaced Prank Giolnia. the soldier member,
who held a place ln the last Legislature from the capital city.

In Fernie the result was:
Uphill, Labor      862

Atlin and Fort George go Liberal, the standing would be as

sixteen Conservatives, three Independents, two Labor and one
Socialist. This would only
give Premier Oliver a clear majority of three above the other
elements in the Legislature, a
vastly different slate of affairs
to that which has obtained during the past four years. Add to
this the fact that it is quite

CbuiM tor Advsrtlslna MUST b. in
this office Wednesday noon the current
week to ascure attention.
Now that the smoke of bat
tie is clearing somewhat, it is
becoming possible to size up
the political situation growing
out of the returns intelligently.
There is cold comfort for the
Liberals in the prospect of the
composition of the new Legislature, as it gradually takes definite Bhape. Not only have
they failed to gain a single seat
formerly held by others than
Liberals, but Conservatives, Independents and Labor candidates alike have made inroads
into the former preponderous
Liberal majority, in a fashion
that must show to Premier Oliver that his regime has not
l alien quite so popularly all ov-
es the province is the Liberal
apologists have been trying to
lead — or mislead — the electorate to believe. At present
■writing Oliver may have but a
l are majority of three over all
the other elements that will go
to make up the new legislative
ody. This ls scarcely enough
(o make things easy for the Premier, and this is conceding to
the Liberals all the seats that
with Incomplete returns show
Liberal leanings.
That the   government owes
its continued lease of life to
iho coast cities once more is
proven, but itB hold on thoBe
points even has been lessened
by the fact that they lost one
of the Victoria seats, and also
both North and South Vancouver, one to Labor and the other
to an Independent.  The return
of Mr. Bowser in Vancouver
once again,   now   established,
Indicates that the electorate in
that city have taken no stock In
the clap-trap, vituperation and
abuse   by   which the I-literals
have   persistently   sought   to
force the veteran Conservative
leader into the discard.     Mr.
Bowser showed more courage
that the Premier when he asserted in the face of a campaign
of vllliflcatlon that he would
sink   or   swim In Vancouver,
That   neither    the   Attorney-
General, nor the former incumbent ln that office, were to be
found at the head of the poll in
the terminal city, Is yet another
sign that all is not well with
the ship of state in this province, showing, in fact, that the
boat rocked somewhat perilously.    Mrs. Ralph Smith soared
to the top of the poll on one of
those gusts of personal popularity that fickle fortune often
favors   men and women with
who move ln a public sphere.
It ie safe to say that she would
stand more chance of remaining in such overwhelming public approval had she not consented   to  renounce her independence of the last session to
enter the fold of the Liberals,
where she will find less scope
for cultivating personal popularity than In her former unattached position. ,,1
Right at home ln the city' of
Cranbrook the Conservatives
probably scored tbe greatest
triumph of all. With every
advantage in bis favor —- the
glamor of his cabinet position
his long professional connection with the city, his former
large majority, and other factors all accruing to his advan
tage — Dr. King went down in
Iiis own home town. Not i
shadow of reproach can be levelled lit Mr. Caven on the conduct of his campaign in the,
city, and possibly in no other
riding in the province were the
issues kept so closely confined
to the proper questions. The
change of sentiment iu the city
toward Dr. King waa apparent
towards the close of the campaign, and uneasiness that was
expressed by even some of his
best friends points to the con
elusion that it was even antl
eipated iu some degree in the
Liberal camp. Not even the
bombast of a Courier election
special, filled with deceptions
prevarications and ill-directed
strafings at Mr. Bowser could
turn the tide. All that particular electioneering effort resulted in was to show the district
at large that there is one newspaper in the city owned body
and soul by a political mach
ine, and the public is now in a
good position to judge for itself in respect to this.
The absentee vole is going to
be the deciding factor, not only
in the Cranbrook constituency,
but in the general distribution
of the parties. With only a
comparatively small majority
to their cretlil, the loss of any
further seals to the Liberals by
the proper allocation of the absentee vote would be a serious
matter, and this is quite within
the bounds of possibility in the
ease of seats at present held by
fellm majorities.
With such contentious measures as government control
looming up in the immediate
future, Premier Oliver's outlook cannot be regarded as be
Ing particularly rosy, and he
has the last day or two very
probably been asking himself
quite Beriously whether the political game is worth the candle. His political legerdemain
of the past few months has not
worked out quite as "Honest
John" expected, and he now
finds himself with less of a majority behipd him than ever.
He will have to pick his footsteps very carefully to weather
lhe conditions he is likely to encounter, and lie is in all probability going to be called upon
to exercise tact and patience
lo a more marked degree than
In the past. This does not come
easy for the Premier, as everyone knows.

When tliu Boars failed to stop tho
Canadians and tliu other Britishers at
Lho Zand river, lu tho early days of
May, 1900, ln tho fight In South Africa, they fled pell moll to Kroonstad
iii splto ot tho heroic endeavors of De
Wet and Botha to make them stand
again. A few were rallied and did
valiant work aa a rear guard for thc
enemy, Imt tho greater part of the
enemy was panic stricken, and one
might as WfiBlj havo tried to stem
Niagara as to stop the flight.
They prayed for the darkness as
ilits shells of tiie big guns shrieked
over them; If they lagged for a moment lt was to hear tho zip of tho
British bullets In the ulr. In their
efforts to escape tho relentless pursuer they fired the dry grass of the
veldt, hoping to get away behind the
smoke fie re-en.
Kroonstad was ln the wildest confusion as the British army rolled
towards it; burglers were sleeping
in tho streets and tho squares, only
waiting for the morning to continue
tlieir flight. The Inhabitants were
packing up tlieir valuables ready to
go Into exile; the government was
making ready to remove to another
capital au the danger to tlieir headquarters increased.
Botha und De Wet got together
2,000 or 3,000 men to make a stand but
a few shells from the British guns
sent them flying again. The) mouuted
men wero rapidly approaching Kroonstad*—they were within three miles
of the place when Botha fled. A
train that was to carry away the valuables was burnekl by British shells
beforo it could leave the yards of
Kroonstad. In the groat trek from
that place there were at least 10,000
Boers and twenty big guns, and it was
only tho strategy of Botha that saved
all from capture or destruction
Tho game was up and when the
first shells fell in the town the civic
officials decided to surrender in order
to save the .place from ruins. The
mayor and chief officials camo out
to Bee Lord Roberts, who refused,
however, to treat with anpone but

keys of tho place to the British.
Tho British marched Into the town.

to win the favor of the conquerors,

With the election out. of the
way, though not altogether decided, Father Christmas ought
now to be given right-of-way.
An election with an absentee
vote to consider is not something that can be fought out
and then forgotten, that twen-
ty-ono day interval that must
elapse before the counting of
the absentee votes tending to
Introduce a new straining element into the situation. In
Cranbrook this is further accentuated hy tlie fact that the
election is hanging on a very
slender thread. Although tho
ofiicial recount will come but a
few days before Christmas, let
us not have to contemplate the
possibility of a political Christmas. Father Christmas pulls
pretty strongly at the heartstrings of mankind In general,
but lt would not be wise to put
him to a test of strength and
have him pull at party ties as
well. Away with voters' lists

election paraphernalia! Clear
the way for Santa Claus!

When one considers how little the

Is H any wonder that the soap box

tba people, takes aa a whole, are tbo
slaves of a sinister system, known
as "Capitalism;" that potatoes are
high because they are being hoarded;
that sugar was 25 cents a pound because refiners, wholesalers and retailer.] were taking too great a toll; that
tlie bake;1 ls stealing their mouoy and
so on, ad lib. It would be well If they
explained these matt ts to their readers. That^ppmgar Is high because
there is a world shortage, owing to
the sugar beet producing countries
going out of business, and a vast increase ln consumption; that potatoes
aro high because there ls a shortage,

Now, what is a capitalist? In Canada we have n million or more of
them. Every person who owns a war
bond or possesses a bank account ls
Just as surely a capitalist as If he
owned a block of houses or a steel
mill. It Ib merely a matter of degree.

Is being preached. We recall a most
extraordinary Instance of this sort of

Nova Scotia and Her Arms
j A movement ls on foot in Nova
Bcotia for the restoration of the
.original armorial bearings of that
[province in place of those adopted at
'Confederation. Most Canadians are
unaware that In 1021 King James I.
of England, and VI. of Scotland, as
IKing of Scotland, and as a Scottish
'measure, granted to Sir William
.Alexander (afterwards Earl of Stirling) tbe territory now forming the
(Whole of the Provinces of Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Prince Ed-
Ward Island, and parts of Quebec and
Of tbe present State of Maine, on the
aole condition of paying annually
"one penny of Scottish money, if no
much be demanded." (lie purpose of
the grant being that Sir William
might ca-yy out a project he had in
mind of making of this vast territory
a New Scotland In America, as there
was already a New Km*.I and and a
New France.
The story of Sir William Alexander
and his efTorts to carry out hia great
project is beside the present purpose.
It all came to little enough at the tiuiu
but bore fruit as we know long afterwards. Royal encouragement to iho
scheme given by King James was
'continued and amplified by his son
and succoat-ior, Charles 1., and among
other marks of favor the last named
sovereign made a grant of arms lo

with an open crown and chain affixed thereto and reflcxed over the back
fold. On the sinister side a savage
man proper. Motto (over the crest)
"Munlt haec et altera vincil." * The
shield of Scotland, blue, with a whit
cross of St. Andrew, was thus, it will
be noticed, counter-changed to white
with a blue cross of New Scotland.
Later, as a separate act, the Baronets of Nova Scotia were given the
privilege of using this same shield,
with Its Inescutcheon as their badge
or coat of arms. An idea got abroad
somehow that the shield was theirs
primarily, and only "borrowed" by
the province for Its seal, etc., when
tn later times "Nova Scotia" became
e\ reality.  The shield, however, be
longs primarily and by Royal authority to the country and not to the
Knights Baronet of Nova Scotia. Its
use by their Order was a different
matter altogether, and with quite
different concomitants.
But the mistake referred to accounts no doubt In some measure for
what took place in relation to the
Provincial coat of arms at the time
of Canadian Confederation. The ancient arms were then found "in possession" In this Province. They were
displayed in the doors of the Province building, and are to be seen
there still, and in the old Great Sent
of the Province. But at the time of
Confederation the origin and authority ot these arms had been forgotten.
It was thought that the Province bad
little ground tor using armorial bearings which (aa was eupposed) belonged lu reality to an order of Bar*
onels. The record was not looked -
tor in the right place, namely, in the
Lyon Offlce iu Edinburgh, where it
might have beeu found, uud bo the
College of Heralds iu ixmdon, supposing no doubt that tne field was
clear, proceeded to prepare arms and
a new seal for JNova Scotia as a Province of the Dominion of Canada, net
moved thereto by the Provincial authorities of thc day, but in opposition
lo their wishes. The new Great Seal
was received in December, 181.9. but
was neither welcomed nor adopted
nor proclaimed by the Lieutenuut-
Governor-in-Council, but pigeon-holed, and Jen unused for years after*
wards. If the Provincial authorities nud beeiwiware 01 tne strength
of the case for the old arms it is natural to BUppose that ihey would
have held out against any change,
but in course of tune they gave way,
aud allowed the matter to go by default in favor of tho new order.
But even then the ancient arms did
not go wholly out of momory. The
shield Is still to be seen, not only on
the old office doors in the Province
buildlug, but on odd pieces of Jewelry
of much later date, and the full
achievement appears on the Bank of
Nova Scotia (10 notes, of tbe issue of
January Snd, 10101 In this last case
the Indian sinister supporter Is shown
in a sitting posture and the unicorn
charging around the dexter side of
the shield—the shield itself is of a
shape characteristic of the period ot
debased heraldry nnd is wrongly
marked red! All these details are
wrong, but the interesting fact re-'
mains that In casting about for a
suitable design for Its notes the Bank1
of Nova Scotia selected the ancient1
rather than the modern arms of the:
Province. The Historical Societies1
of Nova Scotia now ask tho rectifies-1

Remedies such as deportation nnd

should learn Is the truth in reaped to

nshes the means of production. Tlie
truth of this asserton we have beforo
us In the case ot Russia. Capitalism
In large centres ot population in that
country was eliminated so far as possible by the Bolshevists, and in consequence the whole structure of production fell to the ground.   All that

J. Bruco Walker, of tho Department
of Immigration extended an Invitation
to tho editors and proprietors of tho

was accepted subject to final arrangements by tho editors and tbo government of Canada. The final arrangements will be mado by tbe minister
In charge of the  Department,  Hon.
James A. ('alder.
All the editors, with whom Mr.
Walker spoke personally, showed a
considerable acquaintanceship with
the affairs of western Canada, due to
the fact that there had been a considerable emigration from their states
to each of the western provinces of
Canada. Thoy look forward with
much interest to the trip of 1921, and
will no doubt give much publicity to
the prairie country as a result.

Uniform To Be
Used by Brigade
Mostly Provided by Organ! iii-
tion    Without   Cost   to
The Boys
In con nc ft io n yitli Die recent establishment litre of a local Boys'
Naval -Brigade, tlie boys who have enrolled, und others who are interested
in the movement, including tlie boys
who sometime hope to be able to enroll, will be Interested to learn a few
particulars in regard to the uniform
called for, and otlier information.
Almost the entire uniform, with the
exception of one or two minor articles, is furnished by the Navy
League without cost to the boys, under Certain easily met conditions. The
regulation dress for boys' Naval Brigades, it is stated in the Navy
League's Naval Brigade handbook,
will be a blue serge navy pattern suit,
jumper and trousers, with a blue jean
collar similar to navy pattern. (A
yhite flannel dickey from May lst lo
September 30th inclusive.) A blue
jerse uynder the jumper is to be worn
for the rest of the year. Caps to be
of navy pattern, with regulation boys'
naval brigade cap ribbons.
The complete outfit is as follows,
and will be issued free to the boys
under regulations which may be
drawn up by each brigade:
One blue serge jumper, one pear
blue serge trousers, flannel dickey
with 14 inch blue jean neck piece,
blue knitted jersey, blue jean collar,
cap and cap ribbon, white cap cover,
knife landyard, half black silk
square or black sateen, black canvas
gaiters, black boots, jack knife. The
last two items are to be provided by
the boy. There are other suggestions
for the uniform which may be used
on special occasions, such as working, camping, etc.
There are many suggestions for
subjects to be taught In connection
with the Naval Brigade, but these
naturally vary with the local conditions encountered. Among tbe subjects which may be taken up locally
are the following: Squad and company drill, such phases of seamanship such as knotting, splicing, the
compas, etc., signalling, (morse,
semaphore and flags,) physical drill,
including Swedish drill, boxing, etc.,
first aid, camping etc. Naturally the

Car away places missionaries and
HudsonB' Bay factors will be called
upon to assist. Two hundred and
thirty commissioners will be employed, one in charge of each federal constituency, and they will be supported
by 11,000 enumerators. With this
staff the statistics bureau at Ottawa
expects to clear up the getting in of

"Tho number of Canadian troops on
active Bervico in Kngland will be reduce*! to forty by the first of January, Hon. Hugh Guthrie, Canadian
Minister of Defence and Militia, has
said recently. The work of the Canadian war graves commission in Europe is proceeding efficiently. He ex-
petets Is probably will continue for
five or six years more at least. It ls
estimated eighty thousand graves in
four thousand cemeteries in France,
twelve hundred in England and six
hundred cemeteries in Canada are to
eo visited. A number of completed
graveyards in France and Britain,
thanks to the wonderful work of Rud-
yard Kipling and others for the final
resting places of heroes instead of being unkdpt are beautiful along efficient and uniform lines. The commission has employed a large number of
men in exhuming bodies throughout
tho wur zone, the exhumation averaging four hundred a week. In the
majority of cases the bodies were
identified by the numbers on the badges, but many unknown heroes were
burled of whose identity all tmce
was lost. Fanners, plowing the former blood-soaked battlefields around
Ypres are dally digging up the sinister
remains. The work of exhumation
will continue.

OTTAWA—While there is little disposition ln political circles at the

each acre yields on an average from
llfceen to thirty tona of ensilage.
Many farmers have erected silos
on their farms during the Bummer to
take care of this crop, but most of
them have under-eBtlmatod their requirements and will have more crop
than they can put in their silos.
Sunflower silage Ib due for a more
extensive trial this winter than lt
has had before. The results In previous years have been very satisfactory but only comparatively few
farmers have grown the crop for silage previous to this year If In Its
more extensive use the crop proves
to be as satisfactory ns It has already proved ln the few cases where
It hat. been tried, lt ls safe to say
that in a few yeara the farm without
a silo will be an exception In Western Canada.
Since last year's results have become known, considerable Interest
has been shown in silos and ensilage
In Western Canada and several hundred silos have been erected during
the past summer. Typical of this
movement Is tho Cardston district ln
Southern Alberta, where eight silos
hare been erected this year and
where about fifty acres of sunflowers
ware nlanted.   Tba cron has Droved
so successful that it U predicted that 1
one hundred silos will be built ln the
district next year and more than a i
thousand acres of sunflowers planted.
Similar plans are befne made in j
other parts of Western Canada, and
the already rapidly growing dairy]
Industry promises to grow much
faster with the general acceptance of I
the sunflower as a silage crop. Another evidence of the value of aun- -
flowers as a forage crop will be the
big sain ln finished steers. Many
of the larger livestock raisers \r\
growing sunflowers and erecting
silos for this purpose. Thus will bt
considerably increased the finis! ing
areas of Canada, which, hitherto,
have been somewhat restricted, compared with the large feeding areas
throughout tke country, and the livestock Industry in tbe West will bf
D'.aced oa a sound baala.

A new and valuable publcation on
Central British Columbia has just
been Issued by the Department of the
Interor through the Natural Resources Inelligcnce Branch at Ottawa. The
writer, P. H. Kitto, D.L.S., wbo has
already prepared several very useful
economic reports on Western Canada,
in tliis publication, as in his other writings, gives tbe results of bis personal Investigations In the different districts.
The publication not only provides
nn accurate description of the country
for general readers, but It also contains exceedingly useful information
for tlie settler. There, are chnpters
on tho climate soil, forests, minerals,
fisheries, game, water desources, and
I ho dlgerent districts, Port Oeorge,
Peace Hiver, Cariboo, Port Fraser, Ha-
zetton and Skeena are eacli treated'separately ami lu detail. Tho agricultural aud industrial opportunities ate
shown without any exaggerations or
embellishments. In the appendix are
given synopses of regulations and acts
affecting tho settler such as pre-emption purchase and lease, Land Settlement Act, government aid, mining
laws, etc.
The report Is written ln non-technical language and ls well Illustrated
with pbotogrphs taken by the author,
and an excellent map of Central British Columbia scale 35 milts to 1 Inch,
accompanies the book. This Interesting and very promising part of British Columbia, which bas now been
made accessible by the completion of
the Orand Trunk Railway, offers n
new field vast and fruitful, to thousands of willing workers. It is thus described: "An Immense territory of
which tho potential wealth fn natural
resources ls beyond estimate and
wliere conditions for homemaking are
of tlie nest. Tlie areas of arable agricultural lands are in the neighborhood of ten million acres with additional lands suitable for grazing purposes. The belt Ib highly mineralized
and uo one can foretell what extent
of treasure lies burled beneath its
hills. Tho coast and inland waters
aro ric in fisheries the extent and value of which are beginning to be more
Tully realized. Tlie forests are also
most extensive and the lumbering and
pulp Industries are already well under way. Water powers are numerous
and great. The climate Is agreeable.
In fact, conditions are exceedingly
Inviting for Intensive settlement and
development along agriculural and In-
ilusiral lines."
The report may bo had freo upon ap-
plloatlon to the Superintendent, Natural Hosources Intelligence Branch,
Depurtraont of tho Interior, Ottawa.

project, and state their Intention of
seeing It through. Assurance Is gtven
that $15,000,000 will be spent in this
province during tlie next threo years,
tlie formative period of the new Industry.
Thut the provincial government'a
stamp of approval had been placed
upon this project was stated in the
course of an interview with Hon. J.
W. deB. Farris, Attorney-General.
Hon. Mr Farris, with Hon. William
Sloan, minister of mines, has been very
active in forwarding the affairs of this
steel development .project, and an or-
der-in-council providing for a con
tract with the active parties was
signed at Victoria on Nov. 20.
On August 25, 1919, when the
project was first laid before the Cabinet, Premier Oliver, on behalf of the
government, addressed Congdon by
letter, stating that the matter being
of the utmost Importance, "the government stands ready to encourage
work of this nature." In pursuing
such a course, the government knows
ft has tho whole-souled support of
everyone ln the province, regardless
of .political .iffiliations'," added the
Following the disvatch of this letter,
Mr. Farris said the development of
the project was watched with great
interest at the capital. Hon. William
Sloan was especlallp active, and as
long ago as the first week In October, following tlie return of tlie Vancouver men with news of financial
success, the Minister of Mines authorized the fullest measure of assistance.
He aided tlie exploration work conducted by the English experts by providing local engineers, who accom.
panted the visitors and made full reports and data, which are now on file
at Victoria.
Before recommending that the
agreement to pay $3 per ton pig iron
B. C. production bounty be signed,
under the uct passed three years ago,
the Attorney-General said he had Interested parties. Inquiries were intituled through a Vancouver bank
and lt was found that the financial
standing behind tbe deal was satisfactory. Upon the strength of this

wages and  thus acquire at least n
Not very many years ago a groat
many peoplo looked on an education
at the University as unnecessary anil
perhaps even harmful for a young
man proposing to enter business or
manufacturing. The old professions
of Law, Medicine and the Church
were, of course, different, and demanded college training; hut fitness
for success in even tho greatest industrial or engineering undertakings
was commonly supposed to be best
gained by apprenticeship In an office
or works, and the boy who left school
at fourteen to run errands and sweep
out tho office was ulten lauded as
having outdistanced his rich neighbor who had "wasted" four or five
years in learning a lot of theory, and
with It acquired habits of luxury, nml
a sense of his own superiority lo
other men.
The above belief was due in part
to ignoranco of whnt college life
really is, and in part to a failure to
distinguish between thn old and new
methods of teaching. Fortunately,
time has cleared away much of this
misunderstanding and ha:; proved lo
all observant people that nothing can
equal a scientific education as a preparation for nny brunch uf advuneed
Industrial work, but lt is doubtful \m
even now the public understands
Just what Is done by our Universities
in training young men for thn En-
. gincerlng Profession.
Perhaps no clearer Illustration of
the modern method can be found
than ln the teaching of Mining Engineering ns given, for instance, at
McGlll. The students begin their
course In October and spend seven
months attending classes ln Mathematics, Physics, and other fundamental subjects, and ln carrying out elementary experiments in the laboratory. Then, after the spring examinations tbey go to a camp In the
country, and do practical surveying
tor four weeks. This ends tlieir
obligatory work for thc year, but thoy
aro urged to spend at least the main
part of the vacation ln Machine
Shops or on Surveys or otlier on
gincerlng enterprises, and lt Is significant of tho earnest spirit of the
■tudents that fully 80 p.c. do this
muI at the tuuiia time   earn,   good
fuir part of the money needed to meet
their next year college expenses.
Tbe second year is similar to the
first, except tbat the work both
theoretical and practiral is more advanced, antl these first two years are
the same for ull Engineering students
io matter what branch of the subject they propose to practice; hut in
the third year, they specialize, and
the minors give a considerable part
of their time to Mineralogy, Geology,
The practical work at tbe end
of this year Is still further specialized and is In the form of a travelling
school. Sleeping ear» are chartered
for a month or more, a diner la engaged when necessary, and the
party    accompanied by a professor
nd a small group of competent ln-
Structors, is taken to some Important
milting district About one-fifth of
Dip time Is given lo practical field
Oqploty—another fifth to visits to
Ore Dressing and Metallurgical
plants, and the remainder In actual
Visits to mines carefully w.lo.ted Iu
advance so tbat the widest pOBBlblfl
Kporlence can be gained. Thn students go underground, spend then
lime watching, and If possible work
ing, with thc regular miners, nnd OAi'
day after returning to tlieir travel
ling homo they compare experience
nnd write up notes, under direct!.»
of the staff. At one cud of tlu
school proper all of tlie men an
given opportunities for employment
for the remainder of the summer. In
lhe mines visited, and thanks to the
broad-mindedness of our Canadian
Mine Managers (many of them oh!
McGlll graduates) the students thus
get invaluable experience, and at the
same time earn very substantial pay.
The value of this very practical
summer school can only be fully appreciated when the men return to
college for tbelr fourth and final
year, which, ls devoted to a study of
the advanced technology of Mining.
Matters whjch might otherwise be
difficult to understand are quickly
appreciated, the Interdependence of
theory and practice arc made clear,
and the students complete their
course with a more mature and balanced understanding of their proton-
