Pald-Up M»mliornlilp Now Reported To Be Heavier Than
In Former Years
Now that the woathor lias become
more wintry, prospects for ft goo*t%ca-
sun's curling aro brightening. Membership does are now coming ln well,
thero being already over $500 ln dues
recorded ln tho books, witli the expectation of two or three hundred
dollars more being added shortly. This
Is a better state of affairs that haa obtained at the commencement ot otlier
aeasons, according to Secretary W. M.
Harris.
A meeting of the previously appointed skips was held on Monday evening of tills week, when the rinks were
filled, and other business transacted.
After the reading ot tl.e minutes of
the previous meeting, a motion was
put and carried that the classification of the players be proceeded with.
A further motion was carried that a
committee of three be named by the
choir to make preliminary classification of players and report back to the
meeting. The committee named was
-Heosi a. E. H. McPhee, J. Milne and A.
Shankland.
While this committee was performing its task, other business was taken
up. It was decided on a motion to
hold a dance on a date to be arranged
later, to raise funds to augment the
resources of the treasury. It was al*
so decided that the executive have full
charge ot the arrangements in connection with this proposed function.
The report of the classification committee having heen received snd adopted, tt was moved and carried that
skips' and players' names be placed ln
separate hats, and rinks filled by
drawing.
A further motion was put through
that four cups he ordered Immediately
as firsts for Orand Chaltenge Trophy
for the District Bonsplel, and a committee be appointed to order the cups
and solicit subscriptions. Later this
committee was named hy President
Hogarth as follows: Messrs. MacPherson, Roberts and Gilroy.

Local Talent Shows
Up Well In Play
"Tho New Boy," Presented Last
Friday to Crowded House,
Makes a Great Hit
Tho comment »rf thoso who were fortunate onoiigl. to Bee tho presentation
of "Tlie New Boy" ut the Auditorium
on Friday night of lust week, are quite
miiiiiiiiKMi.. in tholr high opinion of
tiio production. Muny un outside
comi-uny hus come to the city and pro-
si.tiU'd a far loss creditable offering
Llrnt) the loeal amateurs who wore res-
iKniHibii. for tlit. appearance of "The
Now Hoy." The histrionic talent that
wus UTU-urcnt ns the play devolopod
does credit to Oranbrook, and there
is no question thut tho performance
fully inorlted tho crowded house that
greeted lt. Is Is sincerely hoped that
such performances may become a regularly established thing In tlie community's program of social diversion,
The home productions win out every
time—and this would probably be just
us true ln other lines as in amateur
dramatics.
To Miss Woodland and Mr. L. Dons
las Rengger, as Mr. and Mrs. Ron-
nick respectively, must go the prime
honors of the evening. As the main
figures in the farce, much of the verve
and eelut of the performance must be
credited to them. They entered so
thoroughly Into their borrowed personalities that not ine least straining
after effect was apparent. Having lost
their money ia the Dry Champagne
Company, there Ib offered to them an
opportunity to retreive their fortunes if the unfortunate husband can get
away with an Impersonation of "The
Now Boy" at Dr. Candy's school, and
ot al! the ludicrous situations the "new
boy" and his "mother" find themselves
In, there Is no end. Laughable Is not
the proper term to apply to the whole
effect — It was a veritable scream In
parts, and all well done.
Supporting1 tho principals was Mr.
A. Raworth, as Dr. Candy, proprietor
'of the school for hoys.whose establishment housed tlie diverse happenings
to Mr. and Mrs. Rennlck. In this role
Mr. Raworth did splendidly, cultivating a thoroughly scholastic bearing.
and also cultivating some strong feelings towards his cousin Martha, Mrs.
Rennlck, that served to create a de-
llclously awkward .position for the unfortunate husband, who while masquerading as "the new boy" could do
nothing but look on and "grin and
bear It."
Mr. F. G. Morris and Miss Muriel
Walllnger, as Felix Roach and his
daughter, Nancy, also added their quota of humor to thc play. Mr. Roach,
as a former director in the Dry Champagne Company wns the "villain" in
the play, and complicated things delightfully by atfc-o laying seige to the
heart of his cousin, Mrs. Rennlck, not
king in possession of the important
fact thnt her heart wns already In the
keeping of her supposed son. Nancy
Roach suspected that tho "new boy"
wns n llttlo forward for his age--In
somo tilings — and wondered at his
hackwardness In others.
Mr. L. Kokhart, as Mons. Theodore
BrltaO, French master in Dr. Candy's
establishment, also acquitted himself
very creditably. His difficulties with
the English tongue aud his quaint
mannerisms added a piquancy to his
amorous tendencies townrds Miss
Nancy thnt tho audience appreciated
to the full.
MIsb Blrkotl noted the part of Susan
the uiiiid VI ry creditably, receiving a
n genuine shock when the "new boy"
almost gave himself away by asking
her to jjvt him a bottle of something
stronger than Uw pop usually sold at
the. school tuck sop.
BullOCk major, played by Mr. Jack
Haslam, also lind nn Important part
in making the "new boy's" life miserable for a thnr. nml seemed to enjoy
the experience of putt ing him
through lils paces, nnd making him
too (he mark. So did everybody, ei-
ceptlng the "now boy" himself.
It was an extrcmoly creditable production from tho opening of the first
net to the close of the last. The
niuge arrangements were well looked
after, and everything done that could
contribute to the smooth running of
things. A bouquet presented to MIsb
Woodland at the close was a fitting
mark of appreciation of Iter efforts,
and there was mach applause for the
company In general.
Music provided by a local orchestra
during1 the acts was an arrangement
that served to round "Out the performance Into a well-planned event.
Cranbrook wants more of these entertainments. "The New Boy" sets a
pretty high standard for anything of
the same kind attempted in the future,
but such efforts will always receive
strong support from the community at
large.
OUI
OF
1 PROVINCE
Commission of Three Likely to
be In Charge of Liquor
Dispensing •
Attorney-General Farris gave out
ut Vancouver last week-end what Is
likely to'bo the broad basia of - the
plan proposed tu handle liquor In B.
0. under some system of government
control, following the referendum
this fall, when the existing prohobi-
tlou uct was voted out. During the
election campaign Premier Oliver and
his colleagues could not be induced
to make any statement as to what
form the proposed liquor legislation
would take, saying it would have to
be left entirely to the Legislature to
grapple with. It ls apparent, however, from the statement subjoined,
mude by the Attorney-General, that
■ome preliminary consideration haB
..■-ii given io the matter, and when
the Legislature meets early In February, it Is probable that there wllljw
more amending than creating when
lt comes to framing the legislation In
question.
The Vancouver Province publishes
the following statement from the At*
torney-General:
To this end Hon. J. W. deB. -Farris today announced that the government was anxious to receive any suggestions and assistance possible as to
tho form the enactment should take.
Tlie Attorney-General said that some
fine in January he expected to go to
Regina to consult with Hon. Mr. Tur-
geou, attorney-general of Saskatchewan, in an endeavor to learn what
has been the experience of that province in administration of restricted
liquor sale. Moderationists of British Columbia are expected to furnish
outlines of their views and the door
of course, open to the Prohibition
Association to make any recommendations they wish, even though officials of the "dry" organisation have
so far Indicated their intention of
holding themselves aloof from any
participation in the framing of the
new arrangements.
The whole matter le for the Legislature to decide," said Hon. Mr. Farris, "but, there are some fundamental
points on which the new enactment
is bound to be based. In the first
Place. It Is certain that we shall ad-
here as closely as possible to the
wish of the electors oj expressed In
the ballot which constituted the referendum; and coupled with this the
principles contained in the manifesto
issued by the Premier."
The Attorney-Geueral recalled that
this manifesto proposed that a commission be placed at the head of the
administration of the act. This commission would probably consist of
three numbers. Col. Sclater has already resigned as prohibition commis-
loner and this office Is automatically
nbollshed under the new enactment,
whicli will completely take the place
of the present regulations.
Discussion at Victoria is now proceeding on the broad basis that a permit system wilt be adopted to take the
place of the present prescription dispensing arrangements. That Ib to say
a fundamental of the plan can not
very well be other than to grant
iKina-fide residents of the province
the right, on the Issue of permits, to
buy liquor from a government store.
What character thi*' latter will necessarily take can be fairly well visualized from an examination of the present government dispensaries. Whether one or a doien of such stores
would be needed to supply the needs
of cities like Vancouver and Victoria
may be a detail to be left to the commission to settle, but presumably a
subject which the Legislature will
itself decide upon will be the limit,
'f nny, in quantity to be sold under
permit.
Another mos Interesting subject
that is certain to get Its share of consideration Is that of whether or not
"transient permits" are to be Issued
to visitors to British Columbia. Involved In this It the picturesque possibility of an automobile invasion
from Washington and other adjoining
states, especially during the dusty
months of a dry summer; but It ls
difficult to see, ln the view of some
members of the government, how the
system can be made reasonable and
workable without some sort of per-

The preliminary charge against
James Vltto, now under arrest for
the murder of Mra. Olive R. McDonald at Blalrmore laat week, opened ln
the town hall at Coleman on Wednesday morning. The case has created
considerable excitement ln Blalrmore
and elsewhere.
On Monday afternoon at Coleman
police barracks, a coroner's inquest
was held, when the following verdict
was brought In by tbe Jury:
"We, the jury empanelled to Inquire Into the death of Mrs. Olive B.
McDonald of Blalrmore, who died
about 8.30 pjn. at the hospital at
Blalrmore on Dec. 19, 1920, having
viewed the remains and heard the
evidence of witnesses relative to her
death, find that the aald Olive B. McDonald came to her death from tbe
effects bf a bullet fired from a revolver on the night of Dee. IS. Tbe said
revolver was found tho same night
upon the person of one, James Vltto,
Witness called were Dr. James
Olivia, Clara McDonald, 13 year old
daughter of the murdered woman;
James Carter, chief of Blalrmore police, and Harold Plnkney.
The case has created much Interest
locally from the fact ihat that the late
Mrs. McDonald resided here and waa
quite well known In Cranbrook.
The funeral of thi victim of this
distressing tragedy took place on Sunday last at Blarmore, Interment being
made in the Blalrmore Protestant cemetery. An Impreoalve service waa
conducted by Rev. W. T. Young, of
Blalrmore, and was attended by prominent people of the town, Including a
good representation from the O. W.
W. A., the late Mrs. McDonald being a
war widow.

OTTAWA.—The luxury tax is abolished; the tax, specially Imposed last

The govemmtnt, li abolishing the

DRASTIC PLANS
TO COUNTERACT
THE DRUG EVIL
By an order printed in a special
Issue of the Canadian Gazette recently some very far reaching regulations
which effects the drug traffic in Canada go into force immediately. .Every
doctor or druggist within the Dominion is to be circularized with a view
to rounding up drug addicts, and measures are to be adopted which will
make the carrying on of illicit drug'
traffic practically impossible.
Some figures given out the other
day show that compared with the
three months ending June 30 last
year, the amount of cocaine Imported
into Canada for the same period this
year has dropped from 2,373 ounces
to 605 ounces. Cocaine has dwindled
from $12,384 to $5,816 worth. Morphine has dropped from 11,098 ounces
toto 3,978 ounces, and opium from
7,931 pounds to 978 pounds.
Ttie round-up ot drug addicts will
Imve to be carried out according to
policy which will have to be decided
by the government. It may be that
the government will keep the matter
entirely within Federal limits or seek
the co-operation ot the provinces. At
any rate, the department Ib circulating every doctor and will tabulate a
list ot names and details of drug addicts when all replies have been received.
Letters received by the Department
from other countries show thai Canada's method of overcoming the drug
evil la being copied In several Instances, and some experts have gone so
far as to declare that the Canadian
system is the most -comprehensive,
more practical and Indeed moro successful than any other system yet devised.

| reason of the (act that they did not

This means that of all the people In

year! Considering the enormous amount ot money In circulation In that
country, there can be no very (air

The ancient Greeks and Romans did
not sit up at the table as we do, but
reclined round lt on couches, three
and sometimes even four occupying
one couch, at least this latter wae the
custom among the Romans. Each
guest lay flat upon his obest while

made a sufficient meal he turned over upon his left aide, leaning upon the
elbow.

WATER POWER MAY

May   Provide   Irrigation   For
3,300 Acres and Also Electrical Energy
CRESTON, B.C.—Creston Board of
Trade last week received the report
of Engineer Biker of the provincial
lands department, ln connection with
the Arrow Creek irrigation system
survey. This project will provide
water for Irrigation and domestic use
for the Erlckson, Creston and North
Creston districts, and can be utilized
for domestic system In the town itself.
If tlie latter feature is availed of provision Is made- for tho development of
240 h.p. to operate un electric light
and power plant if desirod. At present day costs of material and labor
the complete system would cost under
1250,000, and were it developed for
Irrigation only tho cost would bo
about $75,000 less. Tlie report Is now
in the hands of tho Joint irrigation
committees ot tile board of trade and
Uio locals of tlie United Farmers ln
Uio urea to bo served. An area of
2,352 acres Is Included in proposed
Irrigation area, about 1,000 of which
is now set out to orchard or berries,
and tho balance- is either cleared or
In Uie logged off state awaiting development. In addition to tho Arrow
Creek schemo the engineer ls now
making a survey of a project to provide water for irrigation ln the Canyon City district, and preliminary surveys have heen made of an area at
Wynndel, which, If gone on with,
would give that well known strawberry area complete irrigation. This
winter promises to be a live ono in
the matter of irrigation, and It ls
likely the Initial features on all three
schemes will be developed to the
point .where actual construction can
commence as soon as prices of the
commodities to be used, as well as
labor, are at a slightly lowor level.
ENDORSES THE

Simon de Montfort's parliament. But
from that parliament has grown our
modern Institution, amended trom

the parliament. Even today It is not
perfect and to the end of time there
will be movers ot some further amis. So'-with the League: It
Is very Imperfect, but it Is a League
and the people through their repres

PROHIBITION CAUSES
DEMAND FOR KAlSINh
Prohibition in Uie United States has
caused an abnormal demand for raisins. For the first six months of
1920, nearly enght million pounds of
raisins were imported from Malaga,
which tlie bureau of markets of the
United States Department of Agriculture says is a quantity "that exceeds
the total raisin exports from that port
for the 7-year period, 191.1 1919, inclusive."
It appears that so far the large imports have not reduced prices ond
that -the California Associated Kaisin
Company, which controls about 88 per
cent, of the crop of the United States
and which is criticized for allowing
monopolistic methods In a recent report of the Federal Trade Commission
to the Department of Justice, is not
worried over the imports. The company has set a price for the 1920
crop of 21 cents a pound to wholesalers for seeded Muscatels, and the
same price for seeded raisins. These
prices are 6 cents a pound higher
than the price set for the 1919 crop.
Wholesalers must pay tlie freight frnm
California in addition.
The tariff on raisins is 2 cents a
pound, but the market in "dry" United States Is so good—tlie price of raisins having been made so high by tho
California association—thut importers
readily pay the tariff and probably
make a big profit.

A BISHOP'S EVOLUTION
When Nicholas, bishop of
Myra in Lycia, surruptitiously
bestowed dowries upon the daughters of an impoverished citizen to save thbm from being
sold into a life of shame, he little thought that he had made
his name immortal. It soon
became customary to secretly
give gifts on the eve of St.
Nicholas, December 6th. As an
honored saint of the Greek
church and the patron saint of
the Russian empire his fame
soon spread to the West. With
the universal assent in the 6th
century to December 25th, as
the supposed date of Christ's
birth, customs of the eve of St.
Nicholas were transferred to
the time of "ChriBt's Mass," our
Christmas Eve.
The Dutch   called   Nicholas,
HOLIDAYS AND HOLY DAYS
Tlie influence of the Christian church on the various national calendars is indicative
antl even epigrammatic of its
permeating world wide influence. In nearly every instance
holidays owe their origin to religious festivals. Holidays are
the holy days of the church,
past and present.
Up to the fifth century the
hurch had celebrated the birth
of Christ at or along with the
Feast of the Epiphany, but
about that time a concensus of
opinion began to arise which
ultimately decided that the
birth of Christ should be celebrated on December 25th. From
that time Christmas ranked
with Easter as an outstanding
day in the church.
For centuries it was a solemn
church festival. Like many
other holy days it soon became
popularized and for many it has
almost lost its significance. In
the last few centurieB the tendency has been to make lt but a
time of feasting and revelry
with no reference to the fact
behind the festival, and during
Ihe few years previous to the
war there was a strong tendency to commercialize the Christmas season. The sentiment
whicli created these holidays is
in danger of becoming almost
extinct. The church is the saving factor but even it Is not
altogether free from guilt. She
must re-create the sentiment
which brought these days into
existence. If they and their
significance are lost to the
world it will be the poorer and
will sooner or later discover
that they are necessary to the
full life of a. people.
. The twentieth century needs
the Christmas spirit as much
as, if not even more, than the
fifth. Never has commerce
thrived as it has In the present
decade.   Never were the rela
tions of men more intimate and
more complex than they are
today, and never was there the
same tendency as today to lie
prostrate at the alter of materialism.
It is a wonderful story, whether true or legendary, that
God came as a child amongst
the race to grow up amongst
men that he might serve them,
win them, and die for them.
The world truly has need of the
story, and much more, of the
fact behind the story—the good
will of God toward men. Many
will overlook these things during the festive season and to
them turkeys, puddings and
presents will be synonyms for
Christmas. Progress along
philosophical, scientific and
commercial lines may have robbed us of thc deep faculty of
sentiment for the holy days,
but who would live in a world
without sentiment, without,
feeling?
On the other hand many will
gather in re-unions — family
and fraternal. Many, because
of the child of Bethlehem, will
gather happy children around
trees and fireplaces. Some will
sing the carols of the glad season In the quiet night or in the
holy places,- and others will
gaze in wonder, as they kneel,
at the mystical and symbolic
creche before the holy alter. As
we think of these we know that
no materialism has been able

R. T. L. Oalbralth .passed through
town yesterday from Moyle.
The Cranhrook Club will hold its
tlrst reception next Tuesday evening.
Mr. McBriilo waa met by a number
of the business men ot the district on
Monday morning ln the Odd Fellows
hall and tile station in the1 district and
the requirements of the riding were
discussed.
Cranbrook is metropolitan, or nothing. Last Friday for the first time,
the town was UgMed with electricity.
There wero many uxpreBslona -jj surprise or approval, especially after the
lights had been turned on for some
time and lt wan demonstrated boyond

was far superior to the average electric light In brilliancy and steadiness.
Messrs. Ryan, King, Mclnnes, Ourd
and Bremner, the promoters ot tho
company, and who constitute the provisional board ot electors, started out
on the theory that the best was none
too good for Cranbrook, and as a result they have one of the most complete electric light plants in the country.

According to our contemporary's Idea of the fitness of

there ought to be nothing left

The decidedly Christmassy
atmosphere that pervades the
advertising columns of the Herald thlB week goes to show that
the business men of the city are
entering thoroughly into the
season of the year. The messages sent out are not mere
meaningless phrases put in
"because it is customary," nor
because it looks well, nor for
any other reason than that the
wishes they express come from
the heart. It is well to catch
the Christmas spirit; but it is
better still to get it and keep it

and hard feelings are dissolved
at Yuletlde by the general feeling of "goodwill towards men'
that ought to take possession
of us. This is the motive actuating the business men of the

ONCE THE OAYEST
OF ALL CAPITALS
The distressed condition of Vienna,
once one of the proudest and gayest
of European capitals, is analized in
the London Dally Telegraph by Capt.
D. H. Lock, ae follows:
In other words what ls going to
be the outiome of a situation which
finds Vienna with a population of
something Just over 1,842,000, while
the total population of the country-Is
only 6,067,000—-Vienna, six years ago
the capital of a vast monarchy, to-
day merely, the Inordinately largest
town ot the country?
Today, not only Vienna Itself and
German-Austria, but the whole of
Eastern Europe, Is ln such a state of
flux that a forecast of that development ls out of the question. For the
factors ln it are at present most of
them unknown in their future workings—-Internally, the relations between Vienna and the provinces; externally, the relations between Austria and her neighbors, not to mention the Internal economic situation
ot the country and the final sliapo
which Eastern Europe will assume,
Vienna In the past has owed Its Im
portance largely to Its geographical
situation It Is not only the meeting
place for the peoples of the monarchy,
now split up Into the Succession
States, but also the point of Junction
between Eastern and Western Europe. Its future, therefore, does not
depend only upon the efforts of Its
population and upon Austria's Internal development. It will be affected,
above all, by the good will or the hostility of the neighboring states.
There lies, it cannot be too often repeated, the crux of the problem.
In the meantime how does Vienna
strike the visitor, wbo goes there now
In this period of uncertainty? It Is
safe to aay that his first Impressions
wll depend upon one circumstance—
whether he visits Vienna as a newcomer or aB one who mat more or less
well acquainted with the city before
the war. The dark dayB of last winter,' when suffering was at Its acut*
est and a large part of Its population
used to go out and cut and bring ln
Its own firewood, are a memory, and
this winter ls nicely starting. In the
middle of the town shop windows are
well stocked with all kinds of goods,
except food. .'

In the heart of the city of St. John,
surrounded by the noise and the bustle of the biggest city in the province
of New Brunswick, sleeps a silent
guard. These are the United Empire
Loyalists, the men au dwomen who
loved Britain bo much that after the
war of independence, when the United
States broke away from the empire,
they abandoned all they possessed and
founded new homes in the Canadian
lands. The broad mouth of the Bt.
John river attracted them and they
founded a colony now a city of 65,000
inhabitants.
But deaths came to their faithful;
i a little cemetery was established
behind die village. There it remains
yet. although no Interments have taken place there for many years. The
city has grown around it and surrounded it. The place of sleep has
been converted into a park with nicely trimmed lawns and fine flower
beds decoratng the sloping sides of
tha  scuarr.    In  tho niidst are    the
iV.'ient headstones and * vaults tbat
mark the sleeping place of some of
the hero band. The oldest stone,
"standing bears on its weathered face
the date "1784," but there are several
others only a few years later. Some
of the markings have been entirely
affaced with the passing of the years,
while others are chipped and shattered by wind, rain, frost and snow for
a century and a half past. Others lie
flat upon the -ground and it is only
by close study that tbe visitor of the
i>16ce can learn who rests beneath in
his long sleep. In scores of cases un*
dohbtedly, of traces of graves and
names bave been lost.
It ls sacred ground now. Even
when the crowd passing through the
cemetery is greatest and when young
people sit on the seats at night and
laugh and talk of the things that are
of the moment to them, even at that
time there Is a sense of honor due
those who braved hardship and* death
in the wilderness, abandoning all
they possessed, tbat tbey might be
true to the empire of tbelr birth.

uiit for transients.
At any rate this la a *ubje«t tbat ia
certain to bt thoroughly goat into lu'
the taming discussion. Th« question
of affording supplies to visitors ii Involved In what*would happen If they
ue not specially lotked after in-son*
clause ln tbe regulatlbus.
If no "transient permits" are pro.
vided, would It not be too great a
strain on tbe generosity or the capacity of permits of those thousands of
resWaute of BrlUab Columbia who are
every summer visited by American
frends? If visitors are "going to get
it anyway," why opt place them on an
official basis, wtUlin exact limits as
to quantty, and this redule the number of the bootlfggers' customers?
These two queries tare propounded by
those who see nothing for It but an
official recognition of the visitor
within BrltlBh Colambia's Rates.
Hon. Mr. Farris,was asked if he believed that the new enactment would
eliminate the bootlegger or to what
extent it would do away with illegal
traffic. He replied that, broadly
speaking, he had no doubt at all but
that the success or failure of the system of liquor handling to be launched
at the New Year demanded very,
very much on whether the Dominion
government will give to the province
the sole right of Importing liquor.
"That Is certainly a fundamental
part of our position and our pro-
gramme," observed'the attorney* general
"We would ank Ottawa for tbe sole
right to bring in liquor and in my
view it is most necessary and reasonable that we should get an amendment to the federal regulations to
that end."
Hon. Mr. Farris proceeded to^ay
that If this were not done the provincial scheme would suffer a great
handicap from the very start An
anomoly would immediately be created, supposing the Legislature limited
the quantity to be sold under a permit, when at thei same time, under
a Dominion statute, any citizen could
import a car-load If he wished.
phases, in itself, it Indicates that Uio
government haa had to meet an extraordinary situatiou. When Kir Henry
Drayton first laid his luxury tax proposals before the house, thero wero
many criticisms and eventually the
entire list of taxable 'articles was re-
rlaed.
It ls understood that a full statement will be available Boon showing exactly how much revenue has so
far been derived from the taxes no

ders. a condition brought about largely by the idea generally held by tbe
public that thlB method of taxation
was Intended to be of a contemporary
character, and mist, sooner or later,
be abolished. Wltb this Idea In mind,
the public had practically stopped
buying, with the result that factories
In many special lines could not operate and their organisations were seriously dislocated, i tit appeared to tbe
government, therefore, that immediate
action was necessary ln the Interests
of employes, manufacturers and the
general .public.
Sir Henry Drayton, minister of finance, after extensive study of the
problem, reached she conclusion that
the purpose for which the taxes
were imposed, namely, that ot curtailing extravagance, reducing prices
and causing people to reflect upon
conditions and prices had been well
attained and that It would be unwise
in the public interest to continue the
taxes in the face pt the grave unemployment situation and Is view of the
fact that conditions and prices are
steadily becoming normal. Sor Henry
feds that the sooner business ot all
kinds could be stabilized and steadied
down to normal, tbe better it will be
tor everybody. He, therefore, considers it his duty to take prompt and
extraordinary action, ae tn this case,
to meet extraordinary conditions. He
had also in mind, It ls stated, the situations of merchants who, In many
cases were unable:,to stand up under
the burden of falling values of their
Btocks and luxury taxes.
The abolition applies both to the
luxury taxes so colled (paid by the
purchaser to the vendor at the time
of sale, and to tbe manufacturers'
tax, with the exceptions cited above.
Abolition by order-in-council means
that the government will lose th*
revenue which it would have derived
from the taxes, in tbe ordinary
course of events, till the end ol March
next, when the fiscal year closes.
What that revenue, would havo been
cannot be accurately estimated, and
It depended entirely on business conditions, but, since the beginning of
the war excise taxes, luxury, manufacturing and sales taxes combined,
have yielded about $50,000,000. Tb*
luxury taxes alone have, (or the last
three months, been bringing In about
$900,000 a month. Of tbe manufacturers' tax, the tax on automobiles,
which was the largest revenue producer In this class, has, sine* th* beginning of the fiscal year yielded
about six millions. 'This Is one of the
taxes abolished. With lt go the manufacturers' tax on pianos, phonographs, .phonograph, records, electric

the other articles stipulated In the
budget, with the exception, aa stated,
ot alcoholic and spirituous liquors,
playing cards and oonfectlontry. Th*
sales tax, the heavy revenue producer
of the war excise t«x, ■• not affected.

ATTORNKY-GKNKBAL OF
ALBKKTA TALKS ON
B.C. LIQUOIl PROBLEM
Says Alberta Dry and B.C. Wet
Makes for Difficulties
In Enforcement
The greatfcBt problem with which
the Oliver government In British
Columbia lias to deal In framing
legislation for tho sale ot liquor under government control Is In fixing
the amount of liquor which shall be
allotted periodically to tho Individual,
according to Attorney-General J. It.
Boyle, of Alberta. Mr. Boylo was a
recent visitor to B. C. for the purpose
of Conferring with the Ollvor government In connection with the liquor
situation.
While on tho coast Mr. Doyle made
somo Htudy of tho question of liquor
control In B. 0.
In speaking of the situation, Mr
Hnylti mild:
"British Columbia Ih going to inaugurate, Lfldor a plebiscite approved
by the people, u syslmn of govornment Hale of liquor for Individual use,
As to what restrictions they will Im-
pone, nml ns to whether all liiflmrs
will bo Hold exclusively by the government, the government of B. 0
has not definitely decided.
Dorters l.eso Control
The government of British Columbia has on Its hands the very difficult problem of intorprctnlg the vote
of the people in favor of the sale of
liquor under government control.
There Is one thing certain, however,
and that Is thn» the doctor and the
drug-gist will no longer havt control
of the purchase and sale of liquor in
B. C. The government finds a certain amount of difficulty in Interpreting the vote of the electors In
the manner and quantity of liquor
which may be sold by the government
vendors. I presume, however, that
they will be able to intercret the verdict of the people in a reasonable way
sod will endeavor to furnish the liquor to the consumers of the province
of British Columbia, avoiding, if possible, the sale of liquor to people who
are addicted to Its use. That is one
of-the difficult problems that the government has to solve.
"In view, however, of the verdict of
the people of British Columbia in favor of the province vending Hquor to
the public, and in view of the fact
that 1n consequence, British Columbia will be open to any person Interested ln warehousing any liquor for
sale In other parts of the world, and
Id view of the fact that no province
has authority to search wares, goods
and merchandise in transit from one
part of Canada to another, H will
be very difficult to prevent liquor
from British Columbia being Imported nto Alberta. It will add to the
difficulties of making Alberta a "bone
dry" province. However, when we
come to consider the amount of Illicit
distilling of liquor within the yrovince
of Alberta, tho control of which Is entirely by the Dominion government
and with which the provincial government hoe no jurisdiction to Interfere, K probably does not make much
difference whether the bootlegger
seta his supply from British Columbia
or from Illicit dsstillng of liquor In
nnder the control of the Dominion
government and the suppression of
Illicit stilts has been turned over to
the Dominion police.
No existing  species of birds have
teeth.

STACK OF WEIGHTY
PROBLEMS FACES
NEW LEGISLATURE
Liquor Control, Financial and
Highways Present Difficult Problems
The new Legislative Assembly for
British Columbia elected recently by
the votes of a generous franchise,
confronts a term of office in which
many problems require earnest attention and speedy solution. At the
direct behest of the people the Legislature is called upon immediately 1o
draft a liquor law embodying the
principle of government control and
salo In Boalod packages, The cam
palgn has not contributed greatly to
the discussion of a practical system,
tho public, like tlie candidates, preferring to remain In waiting and critical mood for the production of the
proposed legislation. It Ib satisfactory to note, howover, that on neither
sldo of the party fence, has tliBre
been any disposition shown to Interpret iho voto of tho people otlier than
on lhe sldo of true temperanco and
with a doslre to preserve tho fair
name of British Columbia from ox-
coss. To attempt to bind members of
the Legislature to a particular form
of -control through u board of commission, as an executive of the Moderation Lcnguo tried, has been, to say
the least, premature, and has been
resented by members of the League
itself. Mr. Bowser, leader of the Conservative party, did not feel inclined
to bind his hands on this subject, no
matter how desirable It may even'u
ally appear to have liquor control entirely disassociated from the Legislature. Representatives from the Moderation League or from any other
quarter will doubtless receive the attention they deserve when the legislation comes before the House, and
we believe every member "of the Assembly, whatever his personal predilection may be. Is prepared to give
unbiassed consideration to a subject
not lacking In technical difficulty and
calling for wIbo handling, so that
whatever law ls passed may have the
support and respect of all classes of
the people.
Financial affairs will call for the
best ability and care from all quarters of the House, having1 regard also
to the enormous burden of debt resting upon the Dominion and in the
department of municipal finance directly. An attempt Is being made to
estimate what this total debt of
Canada Is, and the chief difficulty to
ascertainment seems to be the lack
of a co-ordinated system °f accounting. Provincial debts, outside of Indirect Hablties and guarantees, are
estimated at over twenty-three millions. The Dominion debt ls computed at over two and a quarter billions. To this the debts of the municipalities have to be added. A staggering total Is thereby reached.
Though the sum total wfll leave the
public imagination cold and wilt not
and does not affect the solvency of a
younger and growing country with
Immense undeveloped natural resources such as Canada possesses, the
compilation is enough to cause our
parliaments, federal, provincial and
local, furiously to think. The great
and crynp, demand of Cannda is for
population of the right stamp and fo***
the attraction of capital for the development of Industry and manufactures. Neither can be obtained by the
overloading- of the taxpayer. The
problem of Uie hour In nntlonnl affairs, as ln provincial and civic. Is
to arrive nt a Just Incidence.of our
taxaton. and at the same time satisfy
the legitimate demand for expansion
of public nnd local activities. There
cannot be the least doubt that young
nnd prosperous as Canada Is she will
not escape the depression which financiers havo for long predicted as Inevitable aftermath of war. He is the
wise and careful business men nnd
citizen who has been giving heed to
the signs of the times. Politicians
are prono to decorate tholr platforms
with attractive dressing in the shape
of state subsidy of this or that, unemployment Insurance, health Insurance, old ago pensions and the like.
ImiHirtant as Is the welfare and care
of the Individual in the stato wo he-
llevo n moro Immediate nnd beneficial
service can bo given by tho wise protection of industry and manufactures
from the competition ot older and
wealthier countries, a more Just incidence of tho public financial burdens of communities and Individuals,
and the development of those resources, agriculture, minerals, forests,
fisheries, which constitute the renl
material wealth of our country.
Tho greatest colonisers of whom
the world has record were the Romans. Their first and Immediate task
was the building of roads and highways, which in the old world today
are their enduring monument. Conditions are so greatly different, despite the discoveries and inventions
of the centuries, and roads today wtth
the new mode of locomotion and
transportation, are vastly more Important in the development of the life
and resources of this young country
than any scheme of amelioration that
can be thought of. To perfect the
highways of steel and the highways
of ocean has been the pride of our national governments ln the past. It Is
the task of onr legislatures, Dominion and provincial, to bend to die
task of better roads which mean
much more to the welfare and stability of the country than tbe attractive
fringes and banners hung out by tbe
politician --phllantrophist. — Vernon
The wedding cake goes back to antiquity. One of the important features of the marriage ceremony among
the Romans was the partaking, by
both contracting parties, of a cake
made of flour, salt and water. This
was done in the presence of the high
priest and ten witnesses.
Greater London, with an area of
119 square miles, has an average
population of over 41,000 to the
square mile, compared with Greater
New York's average of 19,000 to each
of Its 300 square miles.

CHRISTMAS TREAT FOR
INVERMERE CHILDREN
(Special to the Herald)
INVERMERE,  B.C., Dec. 18.—Miss
Annie Frater of Second street
Joined the local staff of the Imperial
Bank of Canada ai Junior clerk.
Miss Nora E. Coy, B.A.. who has
been visiting her brother Dr. F. E.
Coy and Mrs. Coy since the Spring,
has returned to her bome at the
Coast.
A very successful Christmas treat
was given to the children of the town
and district ln the ballroom of the
Hotel Invermere on the afternoon of
Saturday, the 18th. Those present
thoroughly enjoyed themselves, one
and all being kindly remembered by
Santa Slaus during tbe short visit he
w&b privileged to pay the community.
The work of assisting him fell largely on -the shoulders of MrB. A. E.
Fisher, Mrs. R. Gladwyn Newton and
Miss E. M. Kittle.
THE OLDEST I. 0. U.
An unpaid note for four shekels ln
silver, bearing 40 per cent, annual Interest for nearly 4,000 years, was
found recently among the clay tablets
at tbe University of Pennsylvania
Museum. The note was given by
man named Bur-Mama to II Slnnu-
tsm. In October, 1962 B.C., the "year
in which the King Rim-Sin occupied
the town of Dur-Damfglllsha." There
were four witnesses to the note. Instead of signatures the witnesses
placed their seals on the documen*,
and were not liable for payment unless It was shown they knew the character of Bur-Mama waB bad when
they swore lt was good. A shekel ot
silver at the time the note was made
was equal to about $100 at the present time.

The five war-ships of the Queen
Elizabeth class were the first not only
to carry 15 In. guns but to be driven
