a number of tho enthusiastic curlers
of the Cranbrook Curling Club, several rinks departtngs with tho necessary
equipment to attend tho District Bonsplel which started in Fernle on Monday.
Numbers of curlers itnd friends of
tho Cranbrook rinks were at the depot
to see the "boys" away, and they were
cautioned to keep level heads and be
sure to "bring homo the bacon."
There were some "old stagers" at
the great Scotch game among those
going from here to Fernie and Conductor Thos. Caven appeared to be
jubilant at the thought of conveying
experts Fernleward who might make
a record of which Cranbrook would
be proud for time to come.
Lethbrldge had six rinks at the
'spiel and twenty-five visiting rinks
had made reservations in Fernle when
the sport started.
Fernie curlers and their wives have
been busy preparing for the visitors,
the sister city having ln mind keeping
up its reputation as a real royal entertainer. The skating rink there
had been secured for the bonsplel and
If found necessary It was the intention
of the Fernie curlers to provide ice
sufficient for nine rinks to compete

Leitch, C. R. Ward.
W. F. Cameron, skip; F. Ritchie, L.
Clarke, D. Flnness.
A. Ward, skip; T. M. MacPherson,
W. M. Harris, N. A. Walllnger.
E. H. McPhee, skip; E. A. Hill, C.
F. McPhee, R. J. Binning.
By some queer accident two Cranbrook rinks were drawn out of the
hat to oppose each other at the start,
"Wonderful Bill Cameron" (vide the
Lethbrldge Herald) and E. H. Mc-
Phee's rinks meeting as a result, the
former winning out by 11 to 7. A.
Ward's rink went down to defeat be-
a Fernie quartette skipped by Kastner
by 11 to 8, while Geo. Hogarth's rink
went up agalnBt Herchmer's rink and
lost out by 15 to 10.
On Tuesday, in tho Walker competition, Herchmer won from McPhee,
Cameron won from Paterson of Taber, and Ward from Hogarth. In the
Macleod contest McNab. of Lethbrldge,
won from Ward. In the McGrath event, Stewart, of Macleod, won from
McPhee, Hogarth won from Monro, of
Taber; Ross, of Tabor, won from
Ward; Cameron from Moffatt. of
Cloresholm. In the Orand Challenge,
Beck, of Coleman, won from McPhee.
Wnrd from Crumley, of Carmangay.

On Tuesday the Pernio curlers entertained tbe visitors at a banquet,
Which was voted a huge surcess by

At a meeting of Cranbrook and district teachers on Saturday, the 15th,
a unit of the B. C. Teachers' Federation was organized. Many of the ten-
chers were unattached members of
the Federation, but tn the organization of a Teachers' Institute all teachers will now become automatically
members of the provincial body. Principal Sheffield of Fernle and Principal
Prescott of Coal Creek, officials In the
B-C, Federation and the Kootenay and
Boundnry Association respectively addressed tho meeting.
Principal Arthurs was elocted president, H, M. Robertson vice-president,
Miss Woodlands secretary, Hiss White
treasurer, and F. G. Morris executive
Mr. II. Charlesworth, secretary of
tho B.C. Teachers' Federation, will
visit Cranl rook on Monday next, the
24th Inst, and will confer with tho Io-
cal stall's on professional matters. He
will nlso address a public meeting in
the evening lu tho Council Chamber
In the Interests of education. Mr.
Charlesworth Is also tho president of
tbe Canadian Teachers' Federation, an
organisation 80,000 strong, and
uu mher of t ho Canadian National
Council of Education. This province.
under tbe wise* leadership of its sec-
retary, is taking a loading part in
Canadian education, to ralso the status
of the profession and to promote the
welfare of the teachers of this province.
Already much has beon accomplished. A spirit of practical co-operatton
has been created between tho Department of Education, the School Trustees, aud the Federation. An arbitration bonrd bas been provided for by
the Department to settle disputes between teachers and trustees and tt
hns already successfully handled several such cases. The organization
along with the Departnient of Education hns worked out a plan whereby
conditions In rural school districts
will bo materially improved and more
effective work accomplished. Upon Its
advice and suggestion the provincial
University has inaugurated summer
courses so as lo ennble teachers to
secure higher certificates by credits
obtained during the summer sessions.
Other matters of great importance Including the consideration of n four
year high school course, text books,
and a two year Normal course for
prospective teachers are undor Immediate consideration.
Questioned nt Victoria lust week
regarding tlie despatch appearing in
a Vancouver newspaper purporting to
give a forecast of the government's
proposals for the handling of liquor,
members of the cabinet have refused
to make any statement. The story as
published says that the government
intends to propose the abolition of
the sale at bars of near-beer .villi tlie
substitution of 'real" beer of '•• or 4
per cent, which will be sold in hotels
under substantially the same conditions as prevailed before prohibition,
that is, with the previous restrictions
as to the number of rooms necessary
to make a "hotel" and some of tlu
former restrictions on sale. In hotel
dining rooms beer will he only obtainable with meats.
The hotels will be only allowed the
privilege of making sales. The gov-.
eminent apparently intends to absorb
the whole brewery output lor domestic sale and will turn the brew over
to the hotels. There will, if Is
planned, be no return of the bur as
it formerly existed. There will be
fewer bars than there are at present
if the bill goes through as it stands,
and "hard liquors," the "spirituous
liquors" of the referendum, will bo retailed by the Government vendors,
probably under a pfirmit system,
A commission of three will administer the new act when it goes into
lorce and one of their tasks will be
to see that hotels sell nothing bul
beer. It Is planned to enact that the
mere possession of liquor in uuy part
of a hotel or tho least trace of a
drunken man will i.ause the hotel to
lose its beer-selling license.
The permit to buy spirituous liquor
at the Government stores will probably be fixed at $5, aud visitors wilt
have to obtain this permit before they
can purchase liquor.
It is hoped to raise a profit of over
two million dollars a year from the
operation of the whole scheme.
Proprietors of near-beer bars are
somewhat astounded by the report
that licenses would be grunted only
to hotels, and some openly express
tlieir doubt as to its being authentic.
It is hard to believe, they say, that
the government would treat them In
such an unjust manner and wipe out
what is considered legitimate investment. Some will not commit themselves by making statements until
the proposed action Is officially
confirmed. They point out that
they were already controlled by city
Inlaws and compelled to pay heavy licenses. Some establishments have
been opened at heavy cost and this
action would ruin many of their number If carried out, it !s said.
"It seems u reasonable tiling," saHl
Mr. Jonathan Rogers, chairman of
the Vancouver Park Board, and i
prominent prohibitionist, "and, ah
though I have beeu too busy of lute
on election matters to consider the
question carefully, 1 think the plan
will work out beneficially, though
there might bi>some danger of young
men procuring bottles of the "hard
stuff" and taking It to their rooms to
drink. I havo not studied the proposals very closely and do nol desire
to say anything more on the subject
until 1 huve had more time for consideration."
"I am a strong prohibitionist, but I
think the proposal to sell beer ln a
manner somewhat similar to that
which pertains ln the Old Country
ls a distinct Improvement." said Mrs.
Jean K. Muckcn, a candidate fur al-
dermnnlc honors In Vancouver this
year. "Of tho two evils, the old bur
we have been used to In this country
Is the worst and I hope, from the bottom of my heart, we shall never see
It revived."
Rev. J. Q. Brown, another prohibitionist, declared that on the face of
the report of the government's Intention of carrying out the Moderation
programme there is a conviction of
insincerity. He said it was understood on all sides that thero was to
be no consumption of liquors on thc
premises tn which they were sold, and
the provisions for beer being sold in
hotels Is directly contrary to such nn
understanding. He took the whole
plan as a movement to return to tho
old methods of handling ltquor,
"My personal view Is very much In
favor of the proimsal to allow beer
to be drunk ut the dining table, nnd
In buffets, at the hotols,    providing

Once more civic elections are
over. The barge ol state bas
been launched for another
year. Whether the seas will be
calm or stormy remains to be
seen. Fortunately oi unfortunately little has been said Irom
which any definite policy might
be understood, li remains for
the council to make manifest
its particular line of activity.
Many of the electors will consider that they have played
their part for the coming year
and are now at liberty to take
their east1 in the arm chair of
contentment nnd watch ilie
stage activities. No council or
board however strong can really carry out its work without
the continual and sincere support of the electorate, it must
have Ihe realization that tlie
citizens are nol only looking on
but manifesting a deep interest
in all civic matters, and showing a desire to assist wherever
possible. There is probably no
limit to progress and achievement wliere a council has sincere and intelligent public opinion behind it.
dinner party that France as a
nation would have received far
more favorable consideration
from Britain in certain matters
if the changes of government
were less frequent. Cabinet
after cabinet came into power,
only to give place to others after a short lapse of time. The
public are apparently beginning
to realize that it takes time to
formulate and carry out real
construction work, and that
this can only be done where
there is sufficient confidence to
return to power for some time
at least those who are best fitted to carry on. The insane
desire for constant change is
giving place to a steadier inllu-

to see in the coming years fruit

Club by a Herald reporter:
"Well, if Cranbrook and district do not undertake to have a

Govt' May Abolish Nenr-Bccr
A survey   of   civic elections
throughout the province,   and
indeed, the Dominion, gives evidence of a desire on the part of
many communities to allow the
leading officials an opportunity
to profit by tlieir experience in
tlle past by returning them to
power   for   another   term   of
office.     Notable   instances   of
this tendency   are to be found
especially in the larger centres,,
outstanding examples being at
Vancouver and Toronto.   Such .
action reveals a growing tendency on the part of Canadian
citizens to give reasonable lime
for tlie working out of various!
policies realizing Ihat little con-1
structive   work   can   be  done |
where thero ar" continual changes.     A few years ago the late
King Edward explained to the]

"Tho idea of profit that I feared

There is a vital difference between
tlto attitude of tlie public now and its
pre-war attitude towards unemployment. Before tlie war unemployment
and starvation mitigated by charity
wero accepted, even by the victims,
as inevitable. During the war there
was work for all, aud the women uud
children of the poorest classes were
better fed and better clothed and shod
than ever before In the history of the
country. Agitators are already asking
crudely if the capitalistic system will
provide for the proletariat only when
the system is fighting for Its own existence-,—London Times.

I'he Importance of Home Training
.Moral education and training in
the home, in the school and In the
church, must be more generally applied aud stressed, if we are to do
our full duty and achieve the results
that our progress in civilization requires. It has been noticed everywhere that the greater number of

callow minds havo been most easily
Impressed by the pernicious Influences of the time. Many of these,
it has been shown, havo gone out of

phenomenon that Is most impressive
in its call for the application of the
counteracting influences of good in

is robberism; lt tolerates imprisonment and execution without trial; it
has brought Russia starvation, disease and death. Thero is no government, it is a worse autocracy than
the Czarlstic government, and I lived
thero for over 20 years nnder the
czar and had the experience necessary
to make comparisons,"
M, Schwartz, a Socialist of San
Francisco, who was recently released
from four month's imprisonment ln
Moscow, mado this declaration the
other day. With his wife, known for
Ith years in the United States as a
socialist worker under the name of
Jesse M. Molle, he went to Russia
last June and attended the second
congress of the Third Internationale.
Thrown Into Prison
The couple were thrown Into prison
on August ti, because they failed to
express approval of conditions In
Russia, They were released on December .1 after Mrs. Schwartz went on
a hunger strike and sent to Lenine,

that she preferred to have her death

sent to Russia by Otto Brenstetter,
executive secretary of the Socialist

Could Not Hide Misery
Describing tho early part of his
visit, he said:
"Everywhere we went we were met
by brass bands and crowds waving
red flags, shouting for the Soviet
government. But we were not fooled.
From the moment we landed in Petrograd wo saw misery, dilapidation
and squalor there. We suspected that
something was vitally wrong; which
could not be explained merely by revolution,

Christmas day, 1635, was a dark
day in tho annala of New Prance, In
a chamber of the fart at Quebec
breathless and cold, lay the body of
the dauntless and wise French explorer, Samuel de Champlain. For
years ho had battled with the storms
und tho strain of life in the new
world and had conquered. But finally
sickness struck him down and, after
several months of a constant decline,
ho died on Christmas day. Paralysis
had hastened tho end so that at the
age of 68 years the great Frenchman
was gone.
Tho French gave tho wornout body
a great funeral. His last thought hnd
been for the scattered and hnrd pressed colony, so soldiers, Jesuits and
settlers followed the body to its grave
where L. Jenno pronounced the eulogy
and later the colonists erected a tomb
fitting for so great a man. Where the
grave is located is still a matter of
controversy. A supposed 'discovery
of the site was made lu 1SG5 nnd
started a bitter controversy again but
the exact location is unknown.
The colony at the time recognized
tho great worth of the mnn, but it
wns really not until he had passed
from his labors that h'.s real importance was understood. Then it was
that his bravery, wisdom and diplomacy was fully recognized. In later
years English and French soaking
alike have veid with each other to do
his memory honor. In the city of
Quebec on the lofty bank of the St.
Lawrence is a monument to his greatness, while St. John, N.B., has erected a smaller mark In Queen's Square
to recall his pioneer visit to the place.
Samuel de Champlain was one of tho
greatest of tlie many leaders of men
who had a part In shaping the destinies of the new world.

According to reports from Victoria
an atmouuceuient is looked for shortly
as to -whether Premier Oliver will re-
sigu the seat in the Legislature at
Victoria, or his old stamping ground
ut Delta. "Honest John" made a visit
to tbe Delta district last week-end
avowedly to confer with his constituents there, aud a decision on tho
mutter was looked for In a few days.
The premlir has intimated that he
muy mako uu announcement this
week nbout the choice of constituency, As far as legal men can discover, law and custom are nol very
clear as to how long thc premier can
hold botli seats.
Current political gossip haa it that
the Premier would resign his Victoria sent to permit Mr. Henry O.
llnll, lho only defeated Liberal candidate in this riding af the recent
elections, to have opportunity to retrieve his laurels and regain a seat
iu the House. Mr. Hall, tt is understood, would like to have another try,
bul, ut tho same lime, Ite feels that
he should dovolo more time to his
profession of law.
In Delta It is no secret that Mr. A.
D, Putersou, a widely-known and
prominent livestock man aud farmer,
wanted to run in that riding, and
when thc Premier announced his Intention to contest tho Victoria seat
thero were many ot Mr. Paterson's
friends who considered tlie Premier
might content, himself with running
In Victoria and allow Mr. Paterson
to enter the lists in the Delta.
But tho Premier corralled both
seats. Should he resign la the Delta,
Mr. Paterson Is the likely clioico of
tho Liberals to contest the by-election there.
Later word fn regard lo thc above
indicates that the Premier Intends to
give up the Delta scut. The by-election will In all probability be held before the opening of tho Legislature,
which is announced for February Sth.
The by-election In all probability will
he contested, nud the first nominating
convention, that to decide on a Liberal
candidate, Is being held in the riding
this week.

Although ho received a majority bf
Iho votes of the electors of Grand
Forks constituency, tho Conservative
candidate has not been elected, according to the decision of the most
learned judge wlio determined tho
merits of a most Interesting case-
While we are not disposed to follow
the example of ono Suylock aud indulge iu rupturous applause of tho
decision of tho court, neither are wo
inclined to repeat an oft-quoted statement that "tlie law, sir, is a bass."
The fault, if thero Is oue, In not that
of the most excellent jurist but that
of the arent of the legal quadruped,
tho legislature. The judge 'before
whom Portia pleaded most eloquently
aud effectively had no advantage
over his modern brother—he was not
hampered In his views by hoary precedents, neither was he compassed
about by laws almost aa innumerable as the sands upon the seashore.
Judge Brown, unfortunately, was
compelled to interpret tho law as
laid down upon the statute books
nnd give a decision that was unjust
to the constituency of Orand Forks
nnd nu Injustice to the man who has
a moral if not a technical right to
sit in thc legislature of the province.
An Ontario judge once set up a
precedent that fight well huve been
followed throughout Canada in cases
affecting the standing of candidates.
This jurist accepted all ballots that
to his mind indicated the preference
of the voter. But that judgment appears to have been too simple to
meet with the approval of either the
laymen who delight to tamper with
laws or of professional men who interpret them. Legal men ignored it
nnd legislators became busy In making provisions that would circumvent
it. Whatever the reason for it, legislatures set verhage high above simplicity when framing laws.—Victoria
Some time ago tho provincial government appointed au industrial commissioner. He was entrusted with a
large fund from which to make loans,
to such enterprises as, upon investigation, proved deserving.
The officer in question resigned to
become the government candidate in
Dewdney at tiio recent elections. He
was defeated. Recently the government reappointed him industrial commissioner.
The fair inference is that Major
Martyn was assured, beforo he ro
signed, that, if defeated, he would be
reappointed to tho public service.
Prior to his resignation the commissioner made a loan of approximately a quarter of a million dollars
to a cordage company in New Westminster, for whom a site has been obtained by purchasing property from
the premier, Two nights beforo election ho announced that the Industrial
board, of which ho had been commissioner, had loaned ?200,000 to a company to carry on business In the
Dewdney riding. These two incidents
are cited to show the gross improprieties which aro suro to attend such n
practice as the one to which attention
ls now colled.
The wholo transaction is politically
Immoral. Tt Is degrading and demoralizing to the civil service, which
tho govornment party was olected in
the first instance to pttrgo of patronage. It Is an affront to political
decency—nit affront In no way qualified by the personal merit of tho of-
flrlal mentioned. Tho way In which
tho premier used tho civil service to
square himself with his old rival in
Dewdney is generally known. That
sort of thing, unfortunately, is not so
uncommon in politics as to nwaken
much comment. Rut tho abuse of tho
public service in iho present Instance
Is flagrant and Intolerable. If the
Industrial commissioner Is to bo a
political pawn for the govornment at
elections, tho bona fides of his loan-,
Ing operations between elections will
come under suspicion and sharp
scrutiny.—Vancouver World.
A recount of ballots in the Kaslo

before a Supreme Court Judge,

— A hearty Invitation to all —

000,000 worth of resin and turpentine
aro Imported iuto Canada each year.

market as a heavy buyor ot these
products from Canada if wo can

Since hit* association with Earl
Qroy In this province some L6 years
ago, Mr. Oliver lias pursued lila
studies of wood products on a survey
whicli haa taken in Russia, Scandinavia, Germany, Frame, Spain, Algiers, Contra] America and the United
Slaton, finishing Dp in the place
where ho started from many years
Great Wraith In Trees
In Mr. Oliver's opinion   the   forest
wealth of tliis province is its greatest
wealth.     liiKiead   of  destruction     by
lumbering he wishos to ste the prov
Inclal forests made a great producing
ground for tiio world's resinous products.    Ho figures that  under proper
orcharding methods,   the   firs   and
. .in    and spruces of this province are
I relatively as valuable as if   cleared
land planted as fruit orchards,   witli
an insatiable market and no risk of
the crop  rotting,     Resins for soap
making, hard gums for varnish making, flotation oils for use by the mining companies and a host of other
valuable commodities are made, from
tho pine anil fir resins, which ure subjected to electrical distillation at tlie
company's "plant on False Creek.
Tons Wasted Kvery Year
Hundreds of tons of this stuff are
burned up or flung awo-y every year
In the mills and forests, and hundreds
of thousands of tons of   resin    are
every year created as a fecal   matter
by the trees, while Canada is importing even her own needs for resin and
turpentine says Mr. Olifer.
One man who went up from Vancouver a month ago to collect resin
and botanicals, says that near Lillooet
he came across two 40-acre patches
which had been logged off in the
P. G. 13. construction days. The whole
cut of 3,375,000 feet lay rotting on
the ground, all of it condemned for
tie and construction purposes because
of tho large amounts of resin In the
wood. Either of those tracts would
have made a very lucrative resin orchard, whicli would have lasted for
generations to come, says Mr. Oliver.

British Columbia's mineral production for the year 1020 will be practically the same in point of value as
that of tha preceding year.
The figures now belnp compiled by
iho Deportment of Mines, indicates
that an aggregate value for all minerals produced, including coal, will
approximate $33,100,000 compared
with $33,896,313 for the year 1919.
The preliminary report of tho De-
j pertinent Betting forth the detailed
| figures of production will be issued
Tho year's figures will show that
thero has been an Increase in the output of coal, especially on Vancouver
..iland, and the toUil for silver has
been swelled by the steady and increased output from the Dolly Var
den mines, Alice Arm. On the other
hand, copper, lead and zinc may, lt
is predicted, show some declines,
Tho banner years in mining In
British Columbia were during the war
period, when Iho demand for the
various metals aud the high prices
ruling therefor st nl tiio production
upwards with a hound. The year
lOli; proved the most active year in
the history of tlie province, the value
i of the production totalling $42,290,462
compared with $39,447,000 the proceeding year. In IfilS, again, the
value of the production of the province aggregated $41,782,000. With
thn end of the war, the falling off in
tho demand and. especially, the demoralisation of tho metal markets resulted ln a sharp decline In tho value
ot the production, tho 1019 total
being $M,2fl0,000. This year, thanks
U) the increasing output of coal and
silver, the total will bo practically
tho same ns that of .t.M9. bringing the
aggregate value of the minerals produced in British Columbia since 1852
to over $700,000,000.     ,

Il.t'.'s Forest Products Kxhiblt
at Toronto Tarries Off
Highest Honors
Delayed Ballot Boxes Holding
Hack  Date of the Full
Count of Votes
For tho second year in succession
British Columbia's forest products exhibit at tho Canadian National Exhibition at Toronto has received the
coveted gold medal and diploma, according to advices whieh have reached
Hon. T. D. I'attullo, Minister of
Lands, at Victoria. The first occasion
ou which B.C's, exhibit secured the
highest award was ln 1919, at the
great Toronto annual exhibition. At
last year's show tills feat was duplicated.
Tt Is a moot point   if the praHe.
provinces will go dry, ho far a s.*o-
gards the prohibition of inter-provin-
:ial trado, ou February lst. Tho anticipation Is that It muy not be until a considerable time after that date.
Fhls ls occasioned by the   fact that
two of the ballot boxes, lu the prohibition referendum, from the far north
only reached  Edmonton    last week.
Beforo the Dominion authorities can
issue au order in council prohibiting
inter-provincial trade it will bo necessary to have the full ballot counted, the order-in-councll coming into J
force -10 days after the proclamation.1
By the time result of the full ballot,
delayed through the late arrival ot the
ballot boxes referred to, Is known and
forwarded to Ottawa from Edmonton
with   the  order-ln-council  to follow,
the date when    the   inter-provincial
trade will be stopped may fall considerably after February lst, as it applies to Alberta.    In regard to the
proclamation there is a doubt   also
whether it will come into effect before
April lst, in the fact that there are
bonded warehouses   which   have licenses for the importing of liquor in
bond,   which   do   not expire   until
March 31st.
