They sing their entire programme In
English. Theirs Is the perfect diction
of British bom. and the words of their
songs are poems of ^exquisite grace
and loveliness. Their work brings
pride to every English speaking person. They reveal thu glories of the
English tongue. The Welsh Imperial
Singers demonstrate the last word
In purt singing. Practically all of
their programme Is rendered a capel-
la„ and the combination of these male
voices produces an ensemble of unbelievable beauty. At last, a programme for both tiie discriminating
musician and the lay listener.
The joy of hearing a programme
every word of which is both Intelligible and understandable with poetry
and music that Is equally refreshing, beautiful and humorous and
charming constitutes a delightful entertainment for old and young, musical and unmusical alike. And this
very joy is likewise a decided novelty
in an age of modernistic Impressionism and flamboyant materialism.
"Why don"t we have this sort of thing
oflener?" kis the silent question on
every face and on some lips after a
concert by the Welsh Imperial Singers.
The answer is because it requires
plenty of brains and good temper,
also power to forget that you are anybody in particular and to think only
of the music. Madrigals and other
vocal gems from former centuries
bear the same relation to the chorus
as the string quartette does to tne
orchestra. .Music where parts are
doubled or buried beneath intricate
counterpart achieves merely a "success d'estlmo." whereas music where
the several voices are individual
"fairly bowls you over," as they say
in England. The singers are appearing under the auspices of the Cumberland Welsh Society and will be
heard one night only, Thursday. January "the 10th or 17th. at the Ilo-Ilo
Theatre, Announcement will bP made

Victoria, Dec. 27.—Almost the first
government business to be taken up
on Santa Claus Tolmie's return from
Ottawa Christmas will be consideration of the appointment of a Commissioner to act for British Columbia iu
arranging with Dominion Commissioners W. W. Cory and Duncan C.
Scott all detail of the transfer to the
Province of the Peace River Block
and Railway Belt Lands. Necessarily
the appointee must be thoroughly
conversant with the British Columbia
case ln all Its ramifications and particulars—familiar, too, with the history of negotiations that have been successfully consummated at long last,
and something of an expert in the
technique of Inter-provincial and Dominion-provincial  adjustments.
That British Columbia's rights shall
be fully safeguarded in these final
proceedings, a strong man with special qualifications Is required as envoy of the Province in, which connection the name of W. J, Bowser K.C.
is much mentioned. Ills selection
would bo eminently fitting In many respects an would be generally applauded. Also it might go far to cement the two wings of tho groat and

Columbia., which *lntLer]y have not

Dear Mr. Festyn Davies,—
It gives me the greatest pleasure to place on
record the appreciation of the public and myself
for the splendid performance you gave with the
Welsh Imperial Singers. I don't remember ever
hearing a finer combination of male voices.
The tone and ensemble were splendid, and
the soloists, each one showed himself an accomplished artiste.
The variety of the selection of items given
was well judged to .suit all tastes, in fact, the
performance did the fullest credit to your splendid training, and I may add the assistance of
your accompanist was no little benefit.
Best wishes,
Believe me,
Yours faithfully

The report ot the Domlulon Fuel
Board just issued is rather misleading
in Its abbreviated form, and, at tha
host, may be taken as simply marking
time, lt is true that there Is a "superabundance" ol coal, both native and
foreign, bu! this super-abundance of
fuel does not touch Canada's fuel
problem. Even in 1112'.. there was
sufficient coal available in Canada to
supply all the needs of Canadian consumers, but the trouble was then, ua
it Is now, that It is imossible to get
this Canadian coal to Canadian mark-
els. Wc say Impossible, but we mean
it only In the business sense. The
biggest domestic markets for coal in
Canada are in lhe Provinces of Quebec
iiiil Ontario. There are uo freaks in
the climate there, as there are on the
Const here. There lirp show and ice
periods during which coal is as much
a necessity of life as is bread. And
Immediately to the South of these
Provinces are the states,of Pennsylvania and Virginia, in both of whlcii
there are tremendously rich coal
fields. It is a better coal than is found
in Canada, it is cheaper to mine than
any coal in Canada, and it is nearer
to the Canadian market aforesaid
than any Canadian coal. Tt Is at once
apparent that if Canadian coal Is to
be substituted for American coal In
the cities of Ontario and Quebec, Canadian consumers will have to pay
more for it, As an experiment special
transportation rates have been given
to coal from Alberta and Nova Scotia
to Montreal and Toronto. Just how
the experiment worked out is not
known yet, but this much can be said
that no preference in transportation
rates will enable Canadian coal
compete with Pennsylvania In th-3
Provinces of Ontario and Quebec. It
is a matter of business, and the average Canadian's attitude to the tarlif
is determined by dollars and cents.
The farmers in Uie prairies want Free
Trade because they are satisfied that
they could make more money under
this policy. What would happen to
the rest of the Dominion under Free
Trade is no concern ot theirs. They
are simply seeking their own interests.
It is the same thing with this fuel
problem. The people of Toronto and
Montreal will not buy Canadian coal
so long as they can get American
coal at a cheaper price. The Victoria
Colonist found a new solution for the
probl em the other day. Keep out
American anthracite coal and let
British coal come in. There is the
whole thing settled out of hand. Of
course there would have to he a duty
on American anthracite coal sufficient
to enable British coal to be delivered
at Toronto or Montreal at a profit
Eighteen years ago there was a big
coal boom in this Province. The output of the mines in that year has
never bcen equalled since, and the
production of the mines on the island
has been declining for years. Aa a
matter of fact the Island coal trade
has never bcen so bad and so bleak
as it is today. The cause of this
decline and slump in the importation
of American fuel oil. lu the interests
of the coal industry particularly, and
of the prosperity of the Province
generally, a duty should have been
imposed on this fuel. The growing
importance of the industry, and the
contribution it was making to the
wealth of lhe Province demanded that,
so far as it was possible, it should receive full and  complete protection.
Sir Robert Borden, it will be remembered, had been returned to office on the issue of tariff protection
as against Laurier's reciprocity proposals. In other words Uie people of
Canada had voted for protection, not
a high tariff no r alow tariff, but a
tariff which would give reasonable
anil adequate protection to Canadian
industries. The Colonist, knows all
this, and it also knows that the coal
industry of this Island from which,
as n city, it was deriving material
benefits, was never given either
reasonable or adequate protection.
The coal industry of British Columbia
has been sacrificed to American fuel
oil, and the Province Is hundreds of
thousands of dollars the poorer, and
its population thousands behind what
it would have been. The Colonist lu
on safe ground when it suggests to
tho people <>f Ontario and Montreal
that they should voluntarily tax their
coal hills to help out tlle coal slump
in Groat Britain. The Colonist has
not been near so active in Its suges-
tlons and arguments to help out the
coal slump on the Island, although
the slump is the direct result ot Uie
importation of American fuel oil. The
trouble in Canada has boon that, even
when Uie country had declared for
tariff protection, it has never got it;
for t ho reason that no government
could afford to run counter to the
wishes, or, shall we say, will, of tho
big interests. It may be that theso
days are passing but in the meantime
the coal Industry lias shrunk into half
its former self and importance. Judging by the experience of the coal industry, In British Columbia there
never will be any satisfactory solution
ot the fuel problem in Canada go
long as Pennsylvania coal can be delivered in Toronto at a cheaper rate
than coal from Alberta or Nova Scotia.'
—Nanalho Herald.    '
cumulation of wealth by shrewd business foresight, came as a distinct
shock to the province in which he had
been an outstanding figure for approximately forty years.
A lesser incidental shock was experienced by Victorians in the apparently intentional denial by the federal authorities of customary observances of mouriug on such occasions.
While the flags throughout the city
—at the Parliament Buildings, the
City Hall, the clubs, the hotels and
Uie harbor shipping—were elsewhere
half-masted soon as the ex-governor's
death became matter of public knowledge, that on the Post Office-Custom
House remained cotispicuosly at tne
peak! and that federal building waa
illuminated nightly, while similar
carnival brilliance on Parliament
Square and C.P.R. properties was
shut off until the week end.
So conspicuous denial of the federal authorities ot honors usually
paid to the distinguished dead—to
one who had been His Majesty's personal represent alive In this Pacific
province—could not have been accidental, for those authorities bad had
their attention directed to the fact
Wg  __ .  ^--
that their flag had not been half-
masted on the Thursday afternoon,
and no corrective action followed.
The Opposition Press has been joyously jumping on the Government during the past week over the abrupt dismissal of Dr. David Warnock from the
deputy-ministry of Agriculture, and
upon the appearance (and disappearance) of the enlarged B.C. Service
Bulletin In its new dress and policy.
As to the former, there is understood to have been amply sufficient
reason for the action taken, which
will be disclosed in the good time of
the government, probably when tho
Opposition undertakes to make capital of tbe matter.
As to the latter, mistakes will occur ln the hest regulated  families.
The resurrection of a government
publication unnecessary and ill-advised In the first instance, and its conversion Into a yet more crude and
amateurish propaganda sheet, were
indefensible. The Goverment was un-
ware that it was making its re-appearance until it was out—and canned
it when it appeared.
There will doubtless be some ragging from the Opposition on this text.
but il will have lost its sting. The
critics have been beaten to their opportunity.
