The closing programs of Chautauqua week-end were sueh as to leave
tho lasting impression on the minds
of those who heard them that, taking
it ail iu all, both the lectures, music
and other items provided this year
were even better than in previous
years. The lectures were for the
most part of a highly practical nature, such as to he of direct benefit
to those who listened to them, while
some were both amusing und instructive. As for the music, it is safe to
say that it delighted every one, being
very varied and suited to ull tastes.
There was also lots of amusement,
especially for the young folk.

Mr. N. A. Wallinger's
Appeal to the Electorate
To the Voters of the Cranbrook "" " \
Electoral District:
Upon June 20th it will be your privilege and duty to elect
your representative for this constituency. It is a matter of vital importance that yon elect a representative to support a
party whose policy will directly advance the hest interests uf
the province at large. I am asking; your suffrage principally on
the two-fold grounds:—
1.—That  the Oliver government has been extremely reckless in the expenditure of public money.
2.—Careless and bungling in its administration, absolutely
regardless of tbe true welfare of the province.
The present Liberal government came into office toward
tlie latter days of the great war aud the obligation to econ.o-«
mise lias ever been upon it during its existence to an extent
that no other government in the history of the province lias
been involved. Tliey won their way into power with the cry
of economv to tbe people. Prom the early days of Confederation until the Conservative party left office iu l°-lh. the net
debt of the province uas at a respectable figure: $19,000,000,
Seven weary years for n (ong-suffering people under Liberal
rule has more than trebled this debt Their utter inconsistency has therein destroyed the confidence of the people.
This ;s the way the Oliver government has fulfilled that
supreme obligation!
It lias increased expenditure ftom less than $11,000,000 a
year to more than $20,000,000 a year.
lt has increased the net debt from $19,000,000 odd to
$59,000,000 odd, and has in addition au overdraft al the bank
of $5,000,000.
It has taken from the taxpayers in seven years the
enormous sum of f 105,616,683,
It has borrowed iu the same period the huge stun of $52,-
294,5p0, and has spent in the same period no less than
157,911,183,
Notwithstanding ihis tremendous increase of taxation, tbis
unparalleled increase of the bonded debt of the province, I ask
you, WHAT HAVI- WE GOT T» SHOW I'OR THIS RECK-
I i;SS HXPENblTURK, THIS CRUFX BURDEN OF DEBT?
1 would ask you to remember that the Oliver government
inherited from tbe Conservative government all our trunk
roads, bridges and public buildings.
WHKRI- HAS THK MONEY OONE?
1 have lived and worked in this district the past 39 years
aud venture to say tbat I am thoroughly alive to the peculiar
needs of this district. 1 have always taken a deep interest iu
the mining possibilities of the district, lt is unnecessary for me
to say tbat tbe Cranbrook district is one of the best mineralized
portions of tbe American continent aud the Sullivan mine is a
striking example of tbe latent wealth iu our mountains.
Prior to tbe war the miner and prospector were encouraged by the government of the day, and we had on our statute
books a mining act which was acknowledged to be the best on
tbe continent, ami this act had continued in force for many
years unchanged; but as soon as the Oliver government took
office they immediately set about to tinker with tbis act. The
freak legisaltion of the Oliver government mining laws is a
detriment both to the prospector aud prospective capital ie-
uired for mining development. Witli reasonable taxation aud
encouragement of the prospector there should have been
Half a dozen Sullivan Mines in this district."  '
When lbe Oliver government stepped into power it
raised its own salaries by thousands of dollars and to
even matters up somewhat they made tbe struggling farmer
suffer by imposing upon him a super tax--doubling bis taxes,
and after bleeding him for years and blasting every hope
be ever had, they now come along at the eve of an election and
take this super tax off: a sop to ihe farmer to catch bis vote.
Tbe Oliver government lias completely failed to provide
irrigation where essential and expedient, ll Ikis discouraged
the farmer to such an extent that today we import into this
province annually Sl7,000,000 of farm products WHICH
SHOULD BE PRODUCED WITHIN OUR OWN BORDER.
The utter incompetency, unbusinesslike and wildly extra-
vagant methods of the Land Settlement Hoard in dealing with
tlu* returned soldier land scheme is a standing disgrace to the
Oliver government. Money has been poured into land deals
which from the first were wholly unsuitccl for farming. It is
perfectly obvious thai particular friends of the government
possessed priority claims fm- consideration above tbe deserving
and just demands of the returned men. I only need to cite
two examples which are familiar to us all. At ("amp Lister
tbe land was purchased for $1XS.A20, the government has invested in this tract $680,829, originally there were 135 settlers,
today a remnant of 35 remain.
Tlte Fernie settlement cost $10,256, total invested iu development amounts tu $4.W2. NOT ONE SETTLER ON THIS
AREA.
These two instances typify (plite clearly how tbe Oliver
government lias squandered one and a half million dollars upon
the pretext of soldier settlement.
The Conservative parly believes in giving every possible
assistance to tbe agriculturist so tbat he will he able to make
a comfortable living, slay ou the land—not migrate tu tbe l_\
S.A.,— and become a real asset to tbe province; as we must
agree tbat agriculture M one of the basic industries of any
country.
1 am iu sympathy with, and supported iti the legislature, the
eight hour day bill which jl now on the statute hooks. | am
heartily iu favor of legislation improving lhe benefits of the
Workmen's Compensation Act. without increasing the burden
of taxation or affecting business interests. This can be accomplished by more businesslike administration.
I would earnestly request each voter to seriously consider
the public questions which confront us today. A continuance
of Oliver rule will surely head us to bankruptcy. If yuu see
fit to re-affirm your confidence reposed in me when yuu elected
me as an opposition member, I give ynu my sincere assurance
as a member of the Conservative administration, I will do
everything in my power to see that a clean, progressive, economical condition of affairs is carried on at Victoria, and each
elector, irrespective of politics in tbe district is given a fair and
square deal.
Thanking most heartily one ami all lor the interest and
support hitherto shown.   I remain
Yours faithfully.

VICTORIA, - While U has been
generally accepted in political circles thnt the less said about beer the
belter—fur tlie politician— there is
a growing impression here that before
the election is over till parties will he
forced tu state their attitude on the
question.
Although much hus heen said nnd
written about the prospect of the
public endorsing the sule of beer hy
the glass in licensed premises, it is n
fact that the average man has not
taken   the  matter  seriously,   ut   lenst
insofar as the probable consequences
nf such u chaage are concerned.
The advocates of a fu.r method of
handling the malt beverage maintain
thut if beer is readily available there
will he a diminution of whiskey drinking. But one prominent writer on
the liquor question succinctly states:
"It is an axiom that drinking id-
ways increases in proportion with the
increase of the opportunity to drink;
ami as the opportunity t<< drink decreases s.i drinking will decrease in
Uke proportion."

other by J. A. Broley, of Fernie. The
council   in   committee   ot   the   whole
considered the tenders pro and con.
and the final result was that the contract was awarded to Mr. Broley. On
aceount of a disparity in the figures
a motion waa put by Aldermen

fresh tenders, but this did not pass.
A. II. DeWolf, who was present, asked if the tenders were prepared on

There is a common and mistaken belief that a provincial

The act will only become op-
erutive in those municipulitics

there is a definite local option

Editor,
Cranbrook Herald.
Sir:     ....
Unlike your correspondent Captain Barnard, it dues not grieve me at
idl to appeal- again in your columns.
My feelings, shared by many, arc no
infliction. My object was a good
jne, and in stating plain facta, look-
ng lo ideal conditions, and asserting
a remedy for the existing chaos, I believe  my humble contribution  to a
,d cause will assist others to act
.fly on June 'Jtltb.
The country craves for a Conservative government—the people do-
1 it. yet there are scores like
Captain Barnard who seem intent on
preventing the people from having
whal they want by attempting to
■pill tbe votes, when such, if successful ran only mean the election of another government on u minority vote,
which must be bad for all of us.
I would invite Captain Barnard to
come out openly und declare his intention. Every sportsman knows he
cannot hunt with the hounds and run
with the hare. Already, as Captain
Barnard admits, he has on two occasions eulogized Cranbrook'a worthy
Conservative candidate. (We havo
another here, and thore are many
more running.), then why should he
not come out iu full support of the
man of his ideal, instead of striving
to defeat him? Presumably Captain
Barnard would like to see a parliament replete with men of the calibre
of Wallinger, Chisholm, Bunnell and
such like, then why not help toward
■why not at once make a move

toward his objective, by helping that
mnn of his ideal, by adopting thiit
man as the nucleus of the ideal government. The idea] takes years of
judicious culling to obtain, but at
least one Is necessary to start with
us an example of type, as foundation!
We are assured of a Conservative
victory in Columbia, and Wallinger
does not need to exert himself to
win in Cranbrook, but nevertheless
additional support will help in the
fijfht for pood government.
Captain Barnard decries political
patronage, though he knows that no
politics in the world are without it.
But there are degrees of political
patronage, and our new Conservative
government will approach the ideal
in its fair distribution of government
employment. This will be no surprise to Captain Barnard because we
are putting in men of the type he
approves.

The Provincial parly, with Mr. J.
S. Johnston, the candidate for this
riding, assisted by Col. Clayton, held
its inaugural public meeting lust week
in McKay Hall, Athalmer. Mr. P.
M. Stoddart acted aa chairman. The
gathering consisted of some fifty
persons.
A dance given in McKay Hall,
Athalmer, by professor I Hold's orchestra, proved to be an immense success
from every point of view. Guests
wore present from Crnnbrook, Bull
River, Canal Flat and to points as
far north as Gulden. Every dancer
pronounced the affair n success, The
same may be said of it financially as
well.
lnvermere, B.cTT June II.—Mr.
and Mrs. A. A. Bremner, of Athalmer left here last week to take Up
their residence in some other part.
From here they go to Spokane and
may eventually end up at tho Coast.

It is impossible to entirely eliminate political

In conclusion, tf not t..«. late, and
in as much as I had a real object in
coming Into prim, I suggest a useful
object  to  Captain  Barnard, for his,
journalistic proclivities.    I would ask      Miss Ogden of Calgary, and Mrs.
him to tell your readers, "whnt is a  Layton of Alberta, are visiting with

A "DISCREDITED" LEADER
Local Liberal advertising matter su far seems lu
harp quite strongly un it> old favorite theme—Mr.
Bowser. Like a fiddle with but one string left, it
still .sends out the same monotonous note. One would
expect to hear some thing of tbe freight rates erit-
sadc that Premier Oliver is leading, like Moses leading the children uf Israel out of a desert nf debt; of
tbe wonderfully successful land settlement policy;
of the advanced social legislation—so far advanced
it can never be quite caught up with—spoken of by
ministers here; of tbe operation and prospects of tbe
P.G.E., which have been Premier Oliver's .special
care. One would have expected ti
these. But instead, it is still Mr. I'
man he must be to transcend every other issue! Tbe
fiddle still plays but one tune, while the electors
would like to hear something that has bearing ou the
r,itU3tiou as it is at present.
"Xo one expects Mr. Bowser to be returned;"
'Mr. Bowser is a discredited leader;" "Nu tine wants
him ns leader nf the party;1" these and other like
gems of constructive thought are being circulated
diligently as the mainspring of the Liberal campaign,
One man spoken uf as a possible leader fur tbe Conservative party is running with Mr. Bowser un bis
ticket in Vancouver; the other is coming from Ottawa  to  speak  on  the   same   platform   with   Mr.
Bowser.   That looks like a party split on tbe leadership question, doesu' i it?     Meetings jambed to the
doors in Vancouver, so tbat tbe firemen had to ne
called to remove   some; biggest meeting on recor
in  Kamloops; large crowds everywhere; meeting
free from heckling and interruption—these look s
like tbe signs of a campaign by a "thoroughly di;
credited" leader, don't they?
What, on tbe other band, is to be said of the
Premier's meetings? They are constantly tbe tar
get for bccklings, questionings, interruptions of all
kinds, challenges to debate, and so on—anything but
a successful and dignified campaign, such as a party
which is to sweep tbe country so thoroughly would
be carrying on. Outside speaker* from Alberta
brought into the province have been refused a hear
ing on account of iheir proclivities for indulging in:
personalities while speaking on behalf of Liberal
candidates.
At tbe time of the by-election Premier Oliver
brought iu the entire cabinet to the Cranbrook riding, while Mr. Bowser had the assistance of a few
of his supporters in the house. Whose leadership did
tbe electors show confidence in? Wlm was the discredited leader at that time?
If Mr. Bmvser goes into power on tbe 20th of
June, as there is every indication now. it will provide still another illustration of how utterly impossible it is to keep a man down with abuse aud calumny.
Why, one may ask, instead of sending tbe I Ion.

5.  (a) Marine — Insurance on lum

The   limber   industries   of   British
Columbia represent an investment of
about   $l!>n,000,000.   The   premiums

amount to a huge sum.

one-fourth of the population of Bri-j

NOTE AND COMMENT
ANOTHER CHAUTAUQUA DEFICIT
Year after year it SCC1118 that t'liautainnia must
end tip with a deficit, and still the wonder is, according t" Mime, that then- are still lu lie found people as guarantors, who arc willing to stand their
.share of what possible loss might ensue. The wonder comes usually from those who have not yet become acquainted with the Chautauqua spirit. Those
who go with an eye tu "sizing up" the programs, alongside other attractions that are brought tu the
city invariably become convinced tbat it provides the
means for giving the district something in the way
of edifying entertainment tbat could not be bad
through any other medium, Considered from the
standpoint of value for money, there is nothing like
it extant today. Tt offers mirth and music, play
poetry and lecture in a well balanced menu, so that
the average minds cannot fail to be impressed in
some way. That is why year after year there are
new names willing to go on tu the lisi nf guarantors
to bring it in again. Possibly if there could be a
little different system evolved of working out the
arrangements of the local committee, whereby Ihe

can complain of hearing
too much of politics at the provincial elections of 1024, Probably
there never was such a quietly conducted election in the history of the
eity. It probably constitutes another
political record In thut neither one
of the two leaders of the parties in
the field are coming to assist in the
campaign.
The feature of the campaign is
the amount of advertising in all
forms being indulged in by the government iu an attempt to improve
its case. Every newspaper in the
province is being used, with spaces
that put the ordinary advertising
merchant far into the background.
Billboards and other mediums are being used in all, the total cost of
which must run into the hundreds of
thousands of dollars. The freight
rates "fight" continues as the mainstay in the Liberal advertising campaign, though thin is not being regarded locally as the main matter of
concern. Probably next week, when
the first meetings nre held In th
ty interest will he stimulated. On
Monday evening (J. ('. McGeer, for
mer Liberal member for Richmond
and at present engaged in the pres
entation of the freight rates case i.

Ji-hn Taylor, the government chain

big rally of the Conservatives will
be held at the Auditorium, whin the

are being held at Kingsgate nnd

be spent in the vicinity of Cranbrook.
Confidence continues high that Mr.
Wallinger will carry the sent with a
very evreditable majority, there being n noticeable lack of enthusiasm
in the government cause, which is
being freely remarked upon.

V"I*lie times bar* chanted In nothing mora .... than In the rapid conreyance ot Inttlllfen-M and com.
k aunicatlon. . . . Tbei* ancient, slow, and sure modes of conveyance, are now alike unknown; mall-
coteh mces ualnst mall-coach, and high-flyer scalnst high-flyer through the moat remote district* of Britain."    Thus wrote Scott, nearly one hundred years ago.
In these times ot express transportation Is It not refreshing to aft at ease, -My, in a parlor chair on tha
Trans-Canada and read that "that which gratifies the Impatience of the human disposition will be practised In the teeth of danger, and in defiance ot admonition; and mail coaches not only roll their thund-ers
round the base of Penman Maur and fader Edrls, hut
Frightened Sklddaw hears alar
The rattling of the unscytbed car."
In these -days of comparative enlightenment, when aeroplanes are m.tklng long distance flights aad carrying both passenger* and freight from one country to another, and In tlsss tin"- than tt took, sometimes, to
travel between two stage posts, no one will Insist for a moment that the stean heated, electric lighted and
Ian cooled train represents the acme of transportation facilities, but the trains which traverae this continent
ln ninety hours are beyond comparison with those horse-drawn vehicles "which a century ago took that lengtii
of time to go one-tenth the distance.
One century. And In that time the mall coach and locomotive have each fought their aucceasful way
against opposition, and the echoes of Den Nevis have been wakened not oaly by Hie bugle blast of the mall
coach guard but by tho roar and bum of the aeroplane. Now. In a day. In an hour, ont can travel over
distances which before took weeka to cover, and Uie "Impatience of the human disposition" is no longer
gratified in tha teeth of danger and in dafitnre ot admonition.
In Canada we are particularly fortunate In thla respect. Huge trains speed from cotst to coast, and
In their Journeys afford every convenience and a wealth of scenic glory' beside. Tn travel now Is not a
painful eiperlence. It la a Joy, although If one would seek adventure It can still he found. The whole world

(Continued trom Page II
hands o( the whole affair, declaring
that beer and politics could nut and
would nui be mixed. There wus originally no intention to hold the ref
erendum on election day, but such a
course is now to be followed.
During the first year of the new
system the government stores syld
approximately $9,000,000 worth of
BpU'itUOUS and malt liquors, lhe second year the sales rose to fl2,0U0,UUU
and for the year ending June iu a
figure of $14,000,000 will probably
have been registered. This will ttittka
the   volume   of   business   Handled   b)
the government $116,000,000 in three
years.
liven government officials, while
loath to do so, admit that the illicit
dealer in liquor prubably does a*
greal a business as the government,
U su, this indicates that tlie ooU.UUU
people of Hritish Columbia are spending $::."»,min.nm) a year for liquor.
If ihe drinkers of the province number 260,000, Which is doubtful, then-
annual expenditure for the "strong
Stuff" is $101) each.
PROFITS TO THE PEOPLE
One of the strongest arguments of
the "wets" has been that the profits
from the sale of liquor went buck to
the people under the government control system, lt wus also contended
thut these profits would go far toward reducing taxation. Official reports show thut from June 16, 1D21,
when the system went into effect,
until March 31, 1023,—a period of
one year and nine months— the government stores sold $10,122,018
worth of liquor. Of that amount,
$1,727,227 went buck to the people
in profits. In one year Vancouvor
stores took in $8,710,118 and the
city received back as its share of the
profits $273,000. The balance of
profits $273,000. The balance of
$3,437,118 went somewhere else.
The year referred to was 1022.
The census of 1921 gave Vancouver
proper a population of 117,217, so
that the "booze" bill of the city was
$31 for every man, woman ami child.
The city got back in profits a little
over $2 a head.
WILL IT  INCREASE  SALES?
Prohibitionists are a unit that the
sale of beer shall not he freer thnn
it is ut present.
Moderutionists repent their cry'
that with more beer there will be
less whiskey.
The man who has mndo n study of
drinking, for various reasons, leans I
to the idea that when beer is readily obtainable an appetite is whetted
for the stronger stuff.
An alternative argument is lhat
if a man can satisfy his desire for a

Dr. C. W, Saleby, F.R.S., noted scientist and publicist says concerning
the death rate in New York:
'Prior to 1006 the death rate for
pulmonary consumption in New York
ran well above 210 per 100„000 of
population. In 1007 the laws of
smoke abatement were put into force.
New York was niven back the sunlight it had been deprived of for
years. As a result the death rate for
the "white plague" began to fall slowly but steadily until in 1918 it was
106  per  100,000.    Then  came  pro-

thousands of peoplo who will vote
for beer by the glass in the hope Unit
such asystem will help tn eliminate
the ubiquitous bootlegger; just us
thousands of people voted for prohibition in 1016 and then switched to
moderation In 1020, hoping for improved conditions.
Should beer hy I lie glass be endorsed and conditions not be improved,
these thousands of voters will swing
the pendulum in another direction
the only direction left being "bone
dry."
Attorney-General Manson declares
he is a prohibitionist, but that he has
been placed in office lo administer
the law. He says the li \v ic rot being
enforced. Ilis wishes legating beer
have not been followed by the legislature and he declares it is for the
people to decide.
Premier Oliver, personally, is a
prohibitionist, but be has not seen fit
openly to espouse a movevment for
the elimination df nil liquor or the
curtailment of its use. lie will have

A "BEER SAUNTER" OR
A "WHISKEY TODDLE"
.1. Butterfleld, the clever and cultured writer in the Vancouver Daily
Province, has the following item in,
his article, "The Common Hound," In
last Saturday's issue:
"The men of Calgary, having bcenj
divorced for some time from what the:
late Woodrow Wilson might have called "open bars openly arrived at,"
Whatever the outcome of the beer I have forgotten the language of con-j
vote, it is certain that from June 20
there will he a radical change in the
liquor laws. Should the electorate
decide for T)eer the liquor Interests
will have achieved a notable victory,
with the drys girding up their loins
afresh in a fight to prevent the return of the open bnr, though even the
"wets" uver thut they do not want
thnt. Should the voters decide against beer throughout the province,
the  administration  will  go slow  in
viviality. Now thnt this happy condition is restored, rather than search
the archives of sin for the old words
they have invented a new one, and
"going dinning" is their description
of what used to be colled n "pub
mooch," u "gin crawl," a "beer saunter," or a "whiskey toddle." It is intended to indicate u circular tour so
arranged as to include a maximum
number of single libations to Diony-
sIub in nn orbit of minimum diumc-
granting open sale to any munieipa- ter
lity which votes for it
Plenty of ground exists in the
opinion of those following the situation closely, for the declaration that
the beer vote will clearly indicate
whether or not British Columbia ts
to continue a wet province or swing
more intu the prohibits column.      oi net
You can almost hear the hiccoughs.
This is what you will be voting on
next Friday, free sale of beer by the
glass, and not restricting sale at the
government liquor store. That goes
on just the same whether we have in
addition the so called "beer parlors"
THE VERDICT
Pacific Great Eastern Enquiry
ANSWER TO PROVINCIAL
PARTY SLANDERS:
Mr. Gyles, Manager for    Price, Wateihouse & Company —
the largest chartered accountants in the world — stated under oath:
That all itores were properly checked out.
THAT no important document was missing.
THAT every voucher, cheque, invoice and payroll was
produced.
THAT the missing books had no effect in preventing
the audit, because they only summarized the invoices, vouchers, cheques and payrolls, the originals of which were available."
tMr. Justice Galliher's verdict was:
"I find nothing in the evidence in this inquiry to warrant the imputation that there was anything dishonest,
or any dereliction in duty, or disregard of the public1
interests,.or waste, extravagance or incompetence, in
the carrying out of this work by the government."

Mr. J. F. Smith has written from
Owen Sound to the Herald au interesting account of the proceedings at
the General Assembly of the Presbyterian church, which he is attending
us a Commissioner from the Kootenny Presbytery.
Owen Sound
June tt, 192.1
Arrived here Wednesday, June. 4,
ut noon, on one of the train loads of
Commissioners to attend the General
Assembly of the Presbyterian Chureh
which meets in Knox Chureh.
Evidently Owen Sound left nothing
undone to ensure the comfort and
convenience of tho 500 or so Commissioners who gathered here from tho
Atlantic to the Pacific.
Motors met the first detachment
und brought us to Knox Church,
where the billeting was done and the
names recorded as attested liy each
Presbytery. This fails to fully describe how thoroughly the preparation
was made for our reception. Badges
of a neat style, made ready with the
name of the commissioner and his
address, were handed to each one on
presenting his card and also the card
containing tho address of the home
where billeted. The reception was
most hospitable, motors were put ut
the service of the reception committee and each one was driven to the
delightful home in which he was to
sojourn for a week.- Owen Sound
certainly surpassed in friendliness and
hospitality all the assemblies it has
been my pleasure to attend, and this
is the fifth.
This being the jubilee of the union
of the Presbyterian church in 1S75,
a special effort was made to give
the event a marked celebration. The
preliminary began by the Moderator,
Rev. Principal (iandier, D.D., L.L.I).,
of Knox University, taking his seat.
A splendid choir attended, consisting
of thirty young women and fifteen
young men. There was a magnificent organ assisting. Knox church
organ in Cranbrook would he a toy
beside it, or in front of it, as there
would be no room between the walls.
What delighted me was to hear my
favorite hymns, "O God of Bethel,"
"O God our Help in Ages Past,' and
"When All Thy Mercies" sung with
such fine voices and reverence. Another feature which made it most agreeable was to notice that the singers had these time honored hymns hy
heart as they seldom even glanced at
the book.
At noon closing only lhe men are
present. The moderator ^nve the
usual sermon which murks the end
of all moderator's terms. I urn sorry
to put on record thai the whole matter was in exceedingly bad taste, ll
was propaganda for church union
beginning to end and was far
from the deliverance of nny other
retiring moderators I or perhaps any
one else had the pain und disgust of
listening to. After this the course
f proceeding was the election of »
moderator. Dr. Christie, in u long
ulogistic address, proposed Or. Clarence MacKinnon of Pine Hill College,
Halifax; Ur. Robert Johnston of Calgary, proposed Dr. Goforth, famous
missionary, just returned from China;
Dr. Scott, of Perth, (not Dr. Ephriam
f the Record) was proposed but he
declined. On a vote bein« taken, Dr.
MacKinnon was elected by a large
majority. It did seem to me thut the
services of our greut missionary were
not much appreciated as Dr. MacKinnon, a young man, could easily be
cluimunt next year. It wus an ungrateful act on the part of those who
overlooked the claims of Dr. Goforth
und showed that the Record of the
hurch was not read to any advantage. Returned foreign missionaries
and home missionaries filled a chain
the most honorable within the power
of the Presbyterian chinch lo bestow.
It beinK ihe jubilee year quite n few
of those who took part as commissioners in the first General Assembly
ia Montreal in 1H75 were present.
Their speeches were very In tor OS ting
aud showed wonderful vigor of mind
and body. Reports of ull the schemes of the church were given by convenors of each department. Dr.
Robert Laird read a number of letters received from men who through
infirmity could not be present. The
oldest was Dr. McMillen, who is 03,
Reminiscences were given hy many
speakers, of events which transpired
during the Inst fifty years and the
heroic endurnnce of the early missionaries, home and foreign. Dr.
Baird made an excellent speech and
had no trace or taint of "Church Unionism."
It would delight the heart of those
who know and remember Dr. Robertson to listen to the eloquent and
splendid eulogy the Dr. gave of this
matchless specimen of St. Columbn,

the benefit of those who are directly
interested we are in constant and direct communication witli Ottawa and
are assured by our friends there to
rest easy. Awaiting future developments wu are looking for a decision
at Ottawa next Wednesday. Our
committee, which meets three timet

CHAUTAUQUA IS
CONCLUDED
(Continued trom rase One)
Their evening prelude to lbe lecture
tlie form of rollicking sea songs
und recent popular melodies called
forth the loudest and  most  cordial
pplause. If encores had been in order the Pattons would linve been kept
for the evening.
Tiie lecture, however, which followed, held the undivided attention of
the crowd.    Dr.  Burns,  in  "Chords
nd Discords" presented in a vivid
way some of the defects of our civilization and made an appeal for the
vlval of the fundamental vlvrtues
of truth, honesty and purity. His
quotation of statistics of crime and
divorce on the North American continent revealed a downward tendency
in our social conditions. Dr. Burns
traced this tendency to the disintegration of the home ami Lhe loss of authority in that sphere He disclaimed being a pessimist and would admit
that many homes were ideal, but held
that laxity, unwisdom and loveless
ness in home life was the too frequent cause of criminality in our day.
His lecture was interspersed with
much racy anecdote, illustrntions and
imitations which drove home ils more
serious points, It also contained much
timely advice to parents and citizens,
The costume lecture was given on
Monday afternoon by Xo Yong Park,
a gifted Korean, who lias been exiled
from his own country for advanced
ideas. He spoke quite fluently on the
oriental question in general, with
particular reference to the Japanese
phase of things. lie showed how
at <»ne time the .Japanese had iieen
given free right lo come into the U.
S. and Canada, had even been welcomed. They had taken to certain 1
lines of activity, such as fishing and £
farming, and when they showed some
promise of excelling the white men
in these branches, there were movements Started lu exclude them. The
root of the trouble which existed was
apparently to be found in the fact
that the Japanese had a lower stand-;
nrd of living, taken generally; were'
hard to absorb into the nation, retaining their national characteristics
very tenaciously, nnd they created
racial and economic friction. If there;
was to be any movement toward ex-1
elusion, it should be enforced now,,
before any further difficulty arose,
aud all the nations of the orient
should be treated alike.
Some day he thought there would,
be a better understanding between |
the two nations. The development
of the oriental markets in time it was
felt, would furnish the reason for a
better feeling. The establishment of
commercial relationships usually meant that it was easier to settle questions of this kind.
Entertainment on Saturday afternoon was provided by the "One Man
Band." a very hilarious affair, as not
nly did the performer play pleasing
music on a variety of Instruments but
gave several laughable imitations of
how they were played by children anil
amateurs. A fine mimic, he Impersonated various nationalities in such
a way as to keep the audience in good
humor throughout his "turn."
Then followed what must have been
looked forward to by many a child
for weeks before, the entrance upon
the scene of Will Lea, the clown.
From then mi there was continuous
laughter. Lea is by no menus the
ordinary type of clown. Ile never
ceased in Ik- Tunny for one minute,
yet his jokes were ull such as could
be enjoyed  by young  and  old,     His
acrobatic stunts were marvellous for!
a man of over seventy years of age'
and altogether his performance was;
a delightful one. The attempts made
by the children whom he brought on
the platform lo imitate him caused,
lots of fun also,
Tlie lecture in the evening, given]
by Dr. Prank Bobn. nud culled "All
the World ami Ourselves," was a mas-i
terly one dealing with the nffairs of:
practically all civilized countries. It
showed in a simple but logical way
that no country is sultlciontty strong
or self-sustaining to be able to exist
without intercourse with others. Quo*
ting undeniable farts. Dr. Bohn drewj
inferences fitnn them which were of
a convincing nature. In dealing with
modem world conditions, he showed
that Greut Britain und the United
States control at the present time the
destinies of nearly all the other nations, ulso ili.ii it will he quite impossible for Germany to become a
first-class power again. The cotton
industry in Ihe States, he showed,
must eventually die out through not
being able to compete with cheaper
production in Kgypt, India, Uganda
and other tropical countries when
labor costs almost nothing. There
was no reason, he explained, why this
province should not become a very
prosperous one, if its resources were
fully utilized, especially the enormous
amount «f water power now unharnessed. The lecturer showed great
clarity uf vision and justice cannot
be done to it in a short report.
Monday night attracted the largest
audience of the serieS of entertainments and judging from the applause
it received was appreciated by alt.
Like all other Chautauqua entertainments, tho play was not only enter-
taining throughout, but carried with
it a lesson from which many might
profit if they would. "Six Cylinder
Love" was never conceived with the
idea of boosting auto sales, "Oh My |0f ladies
Yes, at. the conclusion of the show ( Kimberh
cms could have been bought for a
song. Together with the warning
ugninst living beyond one's means
given hy the play, the vnlue of right
home living was doubtless indelibly
impressed on the minds of tunny, The
enst wns well bnlanced. Mr. Palmer,
as Father; and Mr. McCullough as
one of the Newly-weds carried their
parts with distinction. The bulnnce
of the cast was: Daughter, Miss Eelf;
Mrs. Newly-wed, Miss Birnie; The
Business-Mail, Mr. Van Piper; Salesman, Mr. McKenny.
At the conclusion of the performance Mr. J. P. Fink spoke in support
of Chautauqua for 11)25. He gave
it as his opinion that Chautauqua wus
a real benefit to any community.

There is a Difference in Batteries
There are many makes of batteries but
only one Preat-O-Lite. Prest-O-Lite Batteries ire different because they are made by
experts—men who know the electrical and
chemical secrets of good battery production.
These men have at their command extensive
chemical, physical and metallurgical laboratories for testing raw materials and they see
to it that every step and process of manufacture is under proper inspection and control. As a result Prest-O-Lile batteries are
uniform in quality and possess unusual
power, life and efficiency. Bade ol every
battery is the widespread system of Prest-
O-Lite factories, sales organization and ser.
vice stations. You Qet all this Hervice when
you buy a Prest-O-Litc. No other battery
offers so much and yet Prest-O-Lites cost
no more than any other good battery.

l»OLA NEGRI IN MOST
BEWITCHING  ROLE
The story of "The Cheat" is devel-
.ped with a wealth of color and presents Pola Negri in the delightful
•ole of Carmelltu de Cordoba, a Lain American, who elopes with an
Vmoricnn, As a result of this ep-
sodo she is disinherited b,\ hor fath-
ir and forced to live on a reduced
-scale, This is the beginning of the i
■itory of "The Cheat" which conies
o the Star next Monday and Tues-
«
lay evenings.
Caimelita lias attracted the attentions of a crook who is posing as a
wealthy man, who follows her to New
t'ork. Tired of poverty she takes to!
gambling and loses large funds entrusted to her, and borrows from her
friend.* When she conies to repay
t, however, she is told it is not the
money he wants—but her. But Car-
nelita refuses to go through with this
lorgain, which makes ono of the real
gripping situations of the play.
The role in which Pola Negri is
a is a bewitching one as a worn-
of fashion, but a highly sympathetic one, and her audiences love her
throughout. The climax is decidedly happy. Jack Holt is also featured, with a strong supporting cast.

Mrs. C. B. Simpson, who has been
ill at the St. Eugene Hospital for a
considerable time, was able to come
home on Monday of this week,
The return game between Cran
brook and Lumberton was played at
Cranbrook on Wednesday evening of
last week. Lumberton led through-1
out the game up until the ninth, when
the winning run was shoved across
by Cranbrook, due to an error on the
part of one of the local aggregation
in the outfield. The score at the end
of the game was 7-0, so the outcome
was not so bad as it might have heen.
Our average Is nothing to boast about
but the men might start practicing in
the near future and that should help
out a good bit, for they are convinced thnt they can't win ball games
without any practice.
Mr. C. H. Worden, president of the
B.C. Spruce Mills, Ltd., returned to
his home at Ashland, Wisconsin, on
Sunday of this week.
Mr. and -Mrs. Sam Wormington,
Wnp have heen residents of Lumber-

which will take some time to complete. During their stay in Lumber-
ton, Mr. and Mrs. Wormington have
taken an active interest In tho Lumber!.>n Club. Mrs. Wormington has

An efficient fire-fighting force has
been organized in Lumberton,   Four
hose reel companies have been formed for the protection of the residences
and the company buildings.        This
does not include the organization that
has been effected throughout the ilif- j
ferent departments of the plant pro- |
per.    Every  ho.se  and   fire-fighting \
apparatus has been manned and men
have  heen assigned   to   their  places \
so ia ease any fire should get a start j
there will be little or no confusion.
Two practices have been held nnd a
marked improvement is noted as a I
result of these.   More drills are to be
held in the future.   Tlu- members of
the various companies are taking an '
active interest in the Company's fire
prevention efforts and the co-opera*'
tion thus far obtained has been of the
very hest.
The Lumberton Ladies' Aid society ■
held its regular monthly meeting last
Thursday af tern on. After tht- busl-j
ness of the afternoon had been disposed of Mrs. S. Wormington was I
presented with a beautiful rememb-j
ranee by the members of th

efficient manner in which she has
filled the duties of secretary of

In l;i2i; Mr. Wallinger was selected ns being the logical candidate for
the provincial parliament and was
elected by a large majority.
I The great Oliver himself came to
I Cranbrook in defence of the Liberal
cause, but instead of employing sweet
! reasonableness in argument, merely
i resorted to abuse of a gentleman held
I high in the esteem even of his politi-
I cal opponents.
Firm in the conviction that their
candidate was the right man, Crnnbrook "dared" (sic) to elect their
choice, whereupon, with the petish-
ness of a spoilt child, Oliver proceeded lo "put a ring around Cranbrook"
and for the first time in the history
of politics has actually "blacklisted"
lbe city ever since.
Don't take my word for it, use
your "bean"! How else can you account for the sudden "slump" in in-
telligimce and physique in this district? Since the last election has any
I Cranbrook citizen been found sufficiently well qualified to fill a vacancy on the provincial government
staff? Are not the road gangs composed almost entirelly of strangers*;
Have not the profits from the local
liquor store been deliberately frittered away so that the money should
nol be used for civic improvements?
To cap the climax, we are not
■sked to vote for the Liberal candidate—we are commanded to do so,
and with the command is a warning
and a threat,
