Tho renovated premises of tli

open to tlie general public on Wednesday afternoon of thin woek, tho occasion bolng what wan termed the of-
clal opening. There was no Hot program for Ihe afternoon or t veiling In
tho way of spooehniuklng, but the
sports committee hud arranged u program, Including   a   girls' basketball
game In the afternoon, and a men's
gume for tho evenings It was Intended ulmi to mako use of thu swliiiniliin
lank for ttoiuo tost events, but this
wus found Impossible at tho last.
A good number   of   mombors and
friends visited tbo club during thu
afternoon and ovoning, and noted with
satisfaction the work which hus boon
done In tht Interior or lho building,
transforming It from a condition of
Vnrk and ruin to a vory creditable
btato of affairs. Afternoon tea was
served in tlie cumforluble uptairs
room overlooking' tlie gymnasium
Two doughty girls' basketball teams
played in tiio afternoon, represtlng
tiio high sehooi und Uio city. They
proved themselves quite adept players, and the game was watched with
Interest, proving fast and vigorous.
The high school girls ultimately won
by 8—1. Tlie half time score was
4—0.    The teams were as follows:
High School — Eva Moir, Dorothy
Hodgson, Jennie Hopkins, Marion
Drummond, Helen I*clerc, Bessie
City — Gladys Spence, Bertha Gill,
Mrs. Kay. Delia Greaves, Edith McDonald.
In the evening a good crowd watched teams from Wycllffe and tlie Recreation Club try conclusions. The
result was a somewhat easy win for
the Club by a score of 3ti—18. The
teams were:
Recreation Club — Carl Gill, P. Mc-
Mann, McTier, A. Crowe, M. Argue.
Wycllffe — Steve Clark, L. Kreuzel,

.   Monday NIglit
At a representative meeting of parents, trustees) and teachers hold ln
tho clly hull Monday the 24th, Mr. H.
Charlesworth, secretary of the B.C.
Teachers' Federation uud president
of tho Canadian Pederutlun, delivered
a Comprehensive uddross ou "Education and Citizenship," Various ugou-
-cies wore cited as playing a purl lu
tho process of education, lho Hchool,
homo, church, press und lltoruturu in
general. Refining to tbo close connection which exists between education and citizenship the speaker referred to Germany, showing how thut
power over a long period hud moulded its educational programs to produce a typo of citizenship that might
make possible Its world wide ambitious. Canada must realize thut Its
citizenship will ultimately be the reflection of Its educational standards
aud programs.
Mr, Charlesworth made reference
to tho national conference on Education held at Winnipeg some month
Associated Hoards ol* Trade for
District to liriiiu- Up Matters
ut Vancouver Meeting
Probably moro than tweuty-flve
boards of trade ull through Uio province will be represented by delegates at a convention or B, 0. Boards,
whicli is to ho held iu Vancouver on
tho 9th, nub, nth and 12th of February. This is un annual gathering,
and upwards of one hundred delegates arc expected lo put iu un up-
pea ran ce at  the gathering this year.
Mr. It. ti. Hamilton, of Invermere,
ns secretary of thu Associated Boards
of Trado tor South-Eastem British
Columbia, has forwarded some resolutions for consideration by the B.C.
hoards, asking support, among other
tilings, ol' a proposal to petition the
govornment for an extension of the
limo for tourists coming into the province. Free tourist permits for thirty days are now given to motorists
coming Into Canada, hut tills time appears to bo Inadequate, and an exten-
tiou to sixty days, to permit u more
thorough uud yel leisurely tour of
tho province, is sought.
Another resolution requests tlmt
ll o government take steps to encour-
ago and pointed out two of the out-|a«Q Bottling upon the land hy colon-
standing findings of that body, of
which be is uu executive member.
First of all it wus reudily recognized
that there wus u crying need for the
broadening of the programs of secondary and high schools, technical, vocational and commercial courses were
necessary to provide an opportunity
for the large number of pupils who
do not desire or ure uot fitted for the
professions, ln crowding all through
tbo same avenue there wus a great
danger thut a realization of failure
might be planted in the pupil's mind
whereas it wus only luck of opportunity which is responsible for a large
percentage of so called failures. Secondly there was a concensus of opinion that ethics must have a place
somewhere in school training, but it
was generally agreed that morals
could be best taught by the example
and conduct of the teachers themselves. This implies a high standard fnr teachers and demanding
such a type that the teachers
would demand In return they receive
greater consideration a.t the hands of
the state and provincial governments.
Speaking    for  his    Federation    Mr.
ists by losing no time in making improvements to Irrigation facilities in
this section. There are large numbers of colonists coming out, it is
pointed out, und they are seeking agricultural lands to settle upon. There
are large tracts of land suitable for
mixed funning operations in the district of Kast Kootenay, but lacking irrigation facilities. Theso districts
would become well populated and
highly productive if irrigation facilities were improved.
Other resolutions being brought up
from this section refer to roads and
trails. One asks that more road
signs be put up along the main highways, conforming to the system adopted by the Dominion Trails Association.      Another resolution in re-

J. W. de B. Farris, attorney-genual,

u preliminary to the measure for tho
"Government control" of liquor, which
the people of the province voted ou
last fall. While Premier Oliver discounts as premature any comment on
the proposals, It should nol be last
sight of that the original statement
was given out to the press by Mr.
Farris, and tho presumption Is that
lie knew whereof he spoke. Possibly
the statement was launched by way
of a feeler in regard to public opinion, in the hope that the government
would 'be able to learn which way the
wind was blowing,
"The papers are full of stories of
what ls going to be in the act," said
the premier. "I don't know wliere all
those stories are coming from. There
has been no official announcement of
what is going to be in the act. Beyond statements at the time of the
election there is no authority for anyone making statements about what
will be in the act- I don't know where

Mrs. Ralph Smith, when approached for a statement of her views regarding the statement published of
the proposal of the government to
sell wine and beer ln hotels, said that
she could not believe tf&aV-hls ,was
to be the basis of the Moderation act.
I do not know yet." she said, "aud
to the best of my knowledge none of
the members have any information as
to what the Moderation act shall or
shall not prescribe. There has been
no discussion on the bill of an offl-
ial nature, an'd I am rather inclined
to the belief that the report is woven
merely on guesswork,"
Even when assured that the report
was supposed to tiavo been issued
from tiie attorney general's office
Mrs. Smith stood her ground and reiterated her belief that sho did not
think it possible that the report truly
defined what would be the basis of
a government control measure.
William Savage, president of the
People's Prohibition association of
British Columbia, takes a strong stand
against tho proposal to grant a table
licence to hotels for the sale of beer
and wine.
'I protest against tho proposal
credited to the government showing
tho intention of the government to
extend the right to sell wine and beer
in hotels," said Mr- Savage. Tt appears that this proposal comes as a
result of on underground bargain
with the hotel keepers which Is flatly
charged in an editorial in the Sun
newspaper. This unholy bargain is
further confirmed by circular letters
from tho hotel keepers to their comrades throughout tlie province. These
circulars were sent out by an association called the B.C. Protective association. They stato tbat they aro organized under this name to defeat
prohibition and protect their Interest
In British Columbia. They ndd the
significant statement "wo accomplished nil wo started out to do. so far, and
tba next thing Is to make this victory
worth while." Another quotation from
these Circulars rends as follows: "Wc

Perhaps the most spectacular finish
to any game played during the bonsplel was that which wus played between McDonald, of Fernle, against

This fs tbo latest development lu tbe
polltloal Situation us it affects tht
popular lady who topped the Vancouver polls.
Now thut the first flush of satisfaction ut the decision to tender the
Speaker's chair to Mra. Smith hus
passed, her friends are coming to the
conclusion thut the office, despite its
high dignity, is something of a Grecian gift. In a word Uuy fear that
Mrs. Smith's significance and usefulness may bo lost in the Victoria arena
If she Is clevau-J to the chair.
"Mrs. Smith has been the mother of
the social legislation wlitca helped
tho governmeni to retail popular
good will. Why not create i new ie
purtment of social service with Mrs.
Smith ut the head? Let her have
charge of tho enforcement of the
Minimum Wage law, labor laws, factory inspection, mothers' pensions
aud soclul legislation generally" was
the suggestion of one prominent Lib-
oral spokesman.
"Or look at il this way," Tie wont
ou. "Mrs. Smith not only represents
Uio largest vote lu Vancouver, with
a plurality larger than Premier Oliver's entire vote in Victoria, but sho
is tho only representative of the
women of British Columbia. She represents half tbo whole electorate. She
ought to be In tho cabinet on that
ground alone."
Quite a number of Liberal workers
In Vancouver huve been pressing
Mrs. Smith's claims from quite a different angle. They point out that
Vancouver had two under Premier
Bowsor. when Provincial Secretary
Dr. McOuIri: and Minister of Works
Chas. Tisdall were honored by Mr.
Bowser, and tbat Premier Brewster
recognized the same right to the city
which bas u third of the population
of the province when he selected Mr.
Macdonald and Mr. Kulph Smith in
his first cabfnet. With two Vancouver members in the provincial
cabinet, tbey claim Vancouver interests are bound to be more fully
looked ufter than Is possible with but
one hard-worked Minister from this
So far as the cabinet is concerned
It Is said tiie only difficulty is in regard to creating an additional portfolio. Under the Constitution Act
only eight salaried Ministers are
lowed. Premier Oliver, who is credited witii having organized the idea
over a year ago of calling Mrs. Smith
Into the cabinet, fs said to be arerse
under existing financial conditions,
to increase the number of salaried
portfolios, even though the amount
of an additional salary makes little
difference to the Civil Service   total.
The by-election in the Delta promises to bring tho question of Mrs.
Smith's claims to the fore. Mrs.
Smith has many women admirers fn
the Delta, where she has been a frequent speaker.

"For even his failings leaned

Such is the epitaph that
Burns wrote for his father's
tomb. To many the genius of
tliis famous son of Scotland
wlio.se birth the wide world celebrated once more on January
25th, is dufflcult lo account for.
But In Bobble's father the key
to the problem may be found.
Of Burns the elder, Carlyle
says, "Burns was fortunate in
his father, lie was a man of
Intense character as the best
of our peasants are, valuing
knowledge, of keen insight and
devout heart, friendly and fear
less." But poverty sank the
whole family, and Bobble re
mained a hard working plottgl
hoy. In spite of excesses Burn!
was ever a moralist although
sometimes a rough one, and
it is perhaps this characteristic revealed iu so many homely
ways which has brought him
universal admiration, The w
world acknowledges him and
all claim him as their own
Lowland Scotland as a distinct
mil ion came in with two warriors and went out with two
bards. Tlie first two, Wallace
and Bruce, made its history,
and tlie last two, Hums and
Scott, told tlie story and sang
Ilie song. "Let who will make
her laws, Burns has made the
songs which her emigrants re
call, with which maidens are
wooed, and by which mothers
lull their Infants. They are tlie
links, the watchwords, the masonic symbols of the Scots'
race." Throughout his life regardless of lapses and Indiscretions this great soul kept an
ideal uppermost. At Ihe com
menceifient of his career he
gives it to us.
"That I lor poor auld Scotland'-)
Some useful plan or book could

•     Thc official  opening of tbe
Cranbrook   Recreation   Club
marks the establishment of
what promises to be a cotn-
nuiniiy enterprise. That there
was a need for such an organization was apparent to many,
and now that it has been launched it is hoped It will have a
very successful career. The promoters havo spared no efforts
to make it a success and much
vision was necessary in the
first place to proceed with the
undertaking. In view of the
seriousness of lhe problem
from a financial Standpoint
higher rales have been fixed

effort to face the situation frankly",
to make clear the firm's Intention to

a now standard in this business for

offer to co-operate with tlie retailers
through publicity In getting their
own stocks down to this absolutely
necessary basis If they are to clear
them out and return to more normal
conditions of merchandizing.

straightforward and courageous
method of facing these unprecedented conditions has already resulted

Twelve hundred cemeteries flcatter-
I ed across France and Belgium will
t be constructed by the Imperial War
I Graves Commission as final resting
places for the thousands of soldiers
of the British Empire who fell during
the war. Some of these cemeteries
have been completed under the direction of distinguished architects, but
by rar the groater number are yet to
be constructed.
In many of these cemeteries, Can
adlan soldiers are, or will be burled
and some of them will be composed
j largely, if not entirely, of Canadian
I graves. Ab the record of each ceme-
; tery is completed, by the military
| authorities It is handed over to the
I Imperial War Graves Commission tor
marking and care. When a cemetery
Is completed, a register is made up,
neatly bound in book form, containing photographs and directions In regard to the cemetery, and also a Hat
of tho soldiers burled there, with full
particulars of ranks, regiment, age,
dato of death, location of graves, and
names of next of kin.
These registers when completed,
form a complete roll of the cemetery,
One copy, bound in leather ls left at
tlie cemetery, other copies being sent
to public libraries and institutions of
that nature, while still others have
hem sold at the cost of production.
The Canadian government, having
seen samples of tlie registers and
realizing what treasured possessions
they will be to relatives of soldiers
who are buried in the cemeteries
overseas, have decided to purchase
sufficient copies of the register of
each cemetery as it is published to
supply the nearest relative of each
soldier buried in the cemetery. Arrangements have consequently been
made to have supplies sent to Ottawa
as each register is completed. They
will bo distributed to the nearest
relative from Ottawa.

OTTAWA.— Tho Prime Minister
having returned to Ottawa and presided at a meeting of the Cabinet
Council, preparatory work for tho session will begin in earnest. The estimates are in hand in the various departments, and it is expected will
shortly he ready for submission. It
is announced Hint parliament will
; open on February 14th.
The legislative programme for the
! session also is receiving conaldera-
i tion. This is not expected to be
heavy, the main feature, of course,
I being the proposed tariff revision,
i With evidence all in, except some for-
i mal memoranda still to be submitted,
i the tariff commission will now be ab-
j lo to begin the actual work of preparing its recommendation for tho
Cabinet Council with subsequent submission to the House of the government's proposals.
There Is every indication, from ad-
I vices received, that the by-election
contest in West Peterboro will provide an entertaining prelude to the
. session. Tho Prime Minister, nccou-
, panled by Hon. Hugh Guthrie, minister of militia, will visit that district
aud assist the government campnlgn.
With five candidates In the field
the constituency wll be flooded with
sneakers nnd the result ts likely to
be In doubt till polling dny.
An action which labor men believe
will prove a death blow to the One
Big Union west of Winnipeg wus taken
by the delegates at the British Columbia coast Loggers' convention at Vancouver recently, according to rejiorts
of the meeting Issued. The delegates,
after considerable discussion, decided to withdraw from the One Big Union and carry on their own organization Independently.
This step taken by the loggers is
said to be an outcome of tlie dispute' which lias existed for some time
between the loggers' organization und
the general officers of tlie One Big
Union, aud indicates that Hie recent
refusal of the loggers to vote on the
amendments to the One Big Union
constitution, which were introduced ut
the Port Arthur convention, waa based on disapproval of the action uf the
convention in allowing the loggers'
j delegates to leave tho delibei-utlons of
tlu, Port Arthur meeting.
The decision of tho British Columbia
Coast Loggers was taken to be an
almost certain indication that a general convention being held lulei-
tlie entire body ot afriliated industrial
workers, camp, mill und agricultural
of the logers' union will sever connections with the One Big Union and
carry on independently.
The withdrawel of tlie loggers
from the One Big Union la said to
mean the latter organization will have
practically nothing left but a membership of about 6000, with which to
carry on. The large proportion of
these members ls at Winnipeg. There
are small units at Edmonton, Vancouver and Calgary and other western
towns but they are not strong In
numbers. The Vancouver unit remaining loyal haa perhaps 800 members
now, lt ls said.
The loggers, with their affiliated
bodies, will be about 20,000 strong

According to reports from Winnipeg
there is dlssentton in the ranks of
Manitoba liberals, much criticism being hurled at Premier Norris of that
province, who Is accused point blank
ot having entered into a "frame-up"
with ftemier Melghen, of tlie Dominion government. At a meeting of the
Winnipeg Liberal Association, the
name by which the antl-Norrls Liberals are generally known, held last
week, a resolution was passed calling
upon the government of Manitoba to
resign because "the Provinco hns lost
confidence ln it, as shown by th|, election," and "on account of t'u> frame-
up of Mr. Norris with Hon. Arthur
Melghen," and tho executive of the
provincial association was called upon
to arrange a convention to select
new provincial leader and formulate
a new platform.
During the discussion, which was
at times somewhat animated, strong
dissent waa expressed to the criticisms ot the government. When it
came to a vote, the resolution was
carried by 18 to 9. There were about
40 present. One of the longest and
strongest speeches in condemnation
of Premier Norris was that of Dr,
3ohaunesson, who declared that he
was a Socialist and would like to see
a Socialist government in Canada,
Challenged on his presence at a meeting ot Liberals, he replied that when
he had joined the party ho had been
told that Liberalism was broad
enough to embrace all men with progressive principles.

Money circulates in the average

tiio principle of profit making from
liquor salts The government is apparently determined to launch on the
courso of making money by the degradation of the people. It Is already
estimating lnrge profits and has
promised a plrtlon of theso to the
municipalities for tholr acquiescence,
In this way the peoplo are In danger
of being debauched. I protest against
tlie making of profits by the degradation of the people.
"The people of British Columbia
will yet come to realize what was belli.nl tho recent liquor plebiscite. This
proposal is ln direct contravention of
the whole principle of the plebiscite."
Under tho heading "Keeping Faith
—Not With the Electors," the Vancouver World recently ran the following editorial:
On October 2th the provincial government took authority, by a largo
majority vote of British Columbia
electors, to repeal the prohibition law
and to undertake the government control and sale of spirituous and malt
liquors In sealed packages.
Tlie World pointed out that the ballot was dishonest, because with the
in ter provincial traffic which ls permitted under the B. N. A. Act the government would be powerless to control the traffic. The ballots were hardly counted before the premier admitted this. When pressed for an outline
of the proposed measure, before Instead of after the election, the premier answered in a unique manifesto, ln
which he declared that it was not the
function of tlie government, but of the
measure, and that the government's
duty was merely to enforce lt.
The World pointed out that, apart
from the fact that practically every
approved by tlie government, the v,
aprovod by tho government, the new
liquor law, being a revenue measure
must be initiated by the government
of the day. This view ia now conced'
ed. Tho attorney general has
through his personal newspaper organ, forecasted the provisions of tho
new hill so far as beors are concerned.
Full strength liquor ls to be sold ln
hotels at meals; but hotels will also
provide "decent conditions under
which a man may at nny hour of the
day buy and drink a glass or a bottle
of beer." It is suggested that this will
"fill a void in the banlBh-the-bar policy." The ordinary reader will think
it fills it very adequately.
Citizens and visitors upon payment
of ?r,-00 are to receive a permit to use
liquor. This considerable fee doeB not
tseom to take cognizance of the limitations of the poor but honest laborer,
wlio was depicted as actually suffering acutely under -prohibition. Its
wide invitation to thirsty neighbors
from the south will not he reassuring
to many citizens.
In the method of sale the government proposes to ignore tlie instructions of tho electors, and the assurances given before th© vote. There
Is no proposal to sell malt liquors in
pealed packages, or to forbid their
consumption on the premises whore
purchased. Instead the government
proposes to become a broker for the
breweries, buying their entire output
and compelling the retail vendors to
purchnso only from them. Here the
attorney general opens wide the door
for tho very abuse that was predict
cd. The trade and the government
have an identity of Interest, and one
which will be quickly evident In the
political lifo of Oils country. If anything were required to prove this It Is
tho candid admission of the government organ In Vnncoupcr that the hill
ns now forecasted Implements a preelection pledge.
It 1s regrettable thnt the government does not show tho same anxiety
to krop faith with tho people who entrusted them with government sale
and control. In faco of this breach of
trust tho pious admonitions of the attorney general for people to practice
tomptranco and uphold tho law come
with bad grace.
It will be noted also that while the
premier In his pre-election manifesto
Intimated that It wns the duty of the
government to enforce the law, the attorney general will not go that far,
He thinks that this measure will succeed only If the people see to Its enforcement. Most people regard that
as his peculiar duty. He excused his
suplneness In regard to the prohibition law by saying the people were
not behind It, He can register no auch
exenso with regard to government
sale and control. He has a mandate
to prepare a bill In accord with tho
terms of the ballot, and to enforce It.
Ho Is evidently prepared to do neither.
On some of the Greek Islands where
the peoplo earn their living by the
sponge fishery, no girl Is allowed to
marry until she haB brought up a certain number of sponges, which must
be taken from a certain depth.
A meeting of all the landowners tn
the area proposed to he served by the
liig Arrow (.'reek Irrigation schema
near Creston was called for the 22nd.
The committee in cliargo ot presenting a report on the financial fcnsabll-
Ity of the project are quite optimistic.
When a report as lo cost of installing
tlie system was mado prices on materials as well as labor wero at the peak,
but wfth tho gradual decline ln these
essentials it is now felt that a generous cut can be made In the estimated
cost of almost $250,000.

Through tho campaign conducted
by laymen of tho Methodist church in
Canada and Newfoundland for higher

been received. This allows an Increase that is helpful but will not
make any of the preachers millionaires.

the results have been satisfactory. In
Canada and Newfoundland the number of circuits reaches 200 and this
will make an lncreaso of about |200

China clay Is often one of the principal ingredients of chocolate creams.
It Is quite harmless, and even ln Its
raw state has a taste that Is not unpleasant. When refined and mixed
with sugar it ls a smooth white substance with just that "body" in it
which makes it so easy to "shape"
ready for a coating of chocolate. China clay is nothing but decayed granite, and Is dug up from big pita In
Cornwall. It is mixed with water and
run Into a series of ponds where tbe
heavy Impurities sink to Ihe bottom, leaving a thin paste of fine cay.
When this settles It is dried into
brlcksr ready to go to the potteries.
It ls also used in many other ways.
Thc glossy paper used In printing
pictures owes its smoothness to china
clay. Calico bleachers use lt in large
quantities. Soap contains a large proportion of china clay which ls used
as a "filler," and a chemist has discovered a process by which lt can substitute the fatty acids of which thirty

Liberals of tho Delta riding at a
convention ut Clovordalu selectod
ihelr candldato to coutcst tbo by-elec-
lion which has been fixed for Saturday, Kobruury 3. Conservatives of
lho riding followed suit aud chosu
tlieir standard bearer.
The Liberal candldato Is Mr. A. D.
Paterson, a well known farmer of the
Delta. -
Mr. W. J. Bowser, Conservative
leader, attended tho Conservative
gathering, ut which he and Senator
Taylor, of New Westminster, also
spoke us well as tho nominee, Mr. F.
J. A. Mackenzie, who represented tho
riding for two terms of the Leglsla-,
ture but wns defeated ln the three
cornered fight at the last general election on December 1.
With both the major political parties entering candidates ln the by-
election fight interest in this respect
centres In the likelihood of a third
candidate being entered. At tho recent general election Mr. R. A. Payne
ran as a Soldier-Labor candidate and
report lu tho Delta riding has It
that hts candidature was engineered
by the government forces which there-
'hy sought to divide the opposition forces. The success attending this man-
oeuvef was manifest ln the vote
which the candidates secured, the
Premier receiving 1334, Mr. Macken-
zielll6, and Mr, Payne 1107.
Mr. Payne has so far refused to
state whether he will again be a third
candidate having stated he would
make no announcement until he ascertained the candidates to be put
forward by the political parties.
Political interest ln the Delta riding Is running high despite the fact
that the general election might have
been supposed to have given electors
there sufficient of politics to satisfy
i hem for some considerable time.
There is a feeling nmong many Liberals that In resigning his old-time
seat and retaining that In Victoria the
Premier has moro or lesB cast himself ndrlft from the Delta which In
former yenrs was wont to glvo him
hearty support, albeit Insufficient at
Tho by-election will see the big
guns In action once again. Premier

retiring officers and to Mr. J. A.
Buckham, the uiember of the district
through whose untiring efforts a grant
of $1500.00 has been promised by the
provincial government.
Tlie following persons who were
largely members of the retiring Board

Court of Appeal Rules Out Ballots Improperly Marked, even
Though luteutlou ls Clear
The cuurt of appeal ai Victoria last
week decided that the appeal uf J.
McKle, Conservative candidate at
Grand Forks, who lias been protesting
the election of Mr. H, C. Heuuiger,
Liberal, be not allowed- Tlie court
hehi tlmt the act requires tiie placing
of the cross in tlie white square opposite the name of tht candidate on
tlie left hand side of the ballot paper.
There were twenty-eight ballots In
dispute marked with the cross at the
rigiit of tlie candidate's name instead
of tlit* left, and if-they had been allowed twenty-two of these would have
gone for Mr, McKte. ami only aix for
Mr. Hennlger, which would bave reversed the result of the election.
Dealing with another phase of Uie
election. Mr. Justiu Eberts, one of
tho appeal court judges, expressed the
opinion that it was a most regrettable
thing that the dereliction of a returning officer should be responsible for
tiie defeat of a candidate who has
really secured a majority of the votes
cast. "Under the circumstances/'
said the judge, "a returning officer
has ft in his power to defeat the will
of the electorate."

Although going hreakfasUess to do
it. Constable Vuchou, ot the Provincial Police, executed a smart piece of
work last week one morning, by
which two burglars, who forced an
entrance into S, A. Speers1 store at
Creaton will be brought to Justice,
Constable Vaobon waa informed at
about S.30 that tlie store of Mr. Speers
had been broken into the previous
night, and at once took up the trail
of Uio maurauders, a light fall of
snow lending him some assistance.
The burglars had made off with some
money from the cash register, which
was almost put out of business iu extracting its contents, half a dozen or
so pairs of shoes, a generous supply
of tobacco, candies and various eatables. They left town by a circuitous
route and later got on the C. P. 11.
tracks some distance out, and keeping
on them as far as Erlckson, when the
tracks in the snow showed the burglars had taken to Uie road to the
boundary, nine or ten miles away. Beyond Canyon City tbe tracks were
lost for a time, but the indomitable
constable got word of h .- men being
ahead, and so pushed on aloue and
singlehanded to accomplish the ends
of justic-e. A mile or so further on
he came across them, ln the act of
preparinp a meal to be made from
some of the stolen goods. They surrendered quietly, being taken completely by surprise, and were ultimately landed back in Creston shortly
after noon. Most of the stolen property was recovered, and Mr. S]>eers
is understood to be lamenting more
over his smashed cash register than
what little goods he stands to  lose.
