it is therefore expected that tho session will uot be a long one. Some
have even prophesied that it might
be completed jn four weeks. This
limit, however, seems rather brief for
a sitting of the Legislature, and It is
more probable that from six to eight
weeks may be expected.

Ceremony With No Casu-

New Year's Eve passed off very
quietly lu Cumberland, in fact It was
freely stated that It was one of the
quietest in thc history of the little
mining town. Apart from tbe blowing of horns and the shrieking of
locomotive whistles and a few crackers being let off. New Year's day came
without any undue excitement. No
cnsualitles were reported by the police
and no arrests made. The Foresters
celebrated the occasion with a dance
in the Ilo-Ilo Hall which waa largely
attended and on New Year's Night, the
Cumberland branch of tho Canadian
Legion held a most successful dance
In the Memorial Hall. The ball was
packed to capacity and to add a little
to the enjoyment, the executive of the
Veterans produced a number of carnival novelties nbout midnight which
were greatly appreciated by the happy
throng of dancers. Caps, streamers,
ticklers, horns and other tinlee-prn-
duclng toys wero much In evidence
and old men and maids entered into
the spirit of cnrnival. A most successful and happy dance terminated
nbout 2 a.m.

perfect peace, not politics, marked the

Welsh   Imperial   Singers   Will
Give Programme January 10th
A concert by the Welsh Imperial
Singers Is for the listener an unique
and unforgettable experience; a contact with a beauty that is rare and
haunting, and interpretations that, In
[heir particular kind, are unparalleled
on the concert stage. They stand alone
and incomparable, because of the wonderful treasure of old Welsh music
which they reveal and the slnguarly
eloquent and atmospheric character of
their performance, This remrakabte
group of singers will appear at the
llo-llo, Cumberland, nn Thursday,

One cannot bg too grateful to such
virtuosi as the Welsh Imperial Singers
for reminding one of the great quall-
Itlcs of this wonderful old music and
Its masters. It would bo difficult to
overpraise Lhe triumphant skill, tho
unfaltering taste, thc insight and the
delicate Imaginative justice of the
singers who interpret their programme

nuance, uf rythni. of expressive and
characterizing color, leaves one In retrospect with nothing tu speak of

permit led to rest from their labors
until they have repeated various items
on their list and added others.
Tbe Welsh Imperial Singers demonstrate tbe last word In part Hinging. Practically all of their program
is rendered ";t capella." and tbe combination of these male voices produces an ensemble of unbelievable
beauty. Every word of their program
is understood, full of humour, grace.
charm und other Indescribable qualities which bring pleasure to all. They
alwuys hold audiences Bpellbound during the entire concert.
They bring a new repertoire to the

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 liner 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,
Vnurs faithfully

administered the portfolios of Provincial Secretary, Education, Railways, and Finance, while for some
time he also was responsible for the
activities of tbe Department of Industries and the Provincial Board of
Health, The duties of these offices

Of   Finance   for   four   years—during
I which he retained the portfolio of Education—he made a reputation as an
administrator which attracted considerable attention on this continent
and in financial circles farther afield.

British Columbia's securities became
so popular in the money markets that
most of the large houses requested

province contemplated the flotation of
a loan.
Us appreciation of ihese factors

to utilize his services in a wider Held.

Lean's   withdrawal   from   Its   public

BEST PICTURE OF OLD

BY   NKW  EQUIPMENT
The management of the llo-llo Theatre have been very fortunate In procuring atl early presentation of that
famous picture "The Jazz Singer",
which wll be screened on January
14th ,16th and 16th, starring Al Jol-
son, who Is famous on the stage
throughout the United Stntcs and does
his best acting of all times In the
"Jazz Singer." "Tho Jazz Singer" depicts the struggle of the star to choose
between a career on the stage as &
jazz singer and the wishes of his Jewish parents who consider it sacrilegious to sing jazz on the stage.
The picture will be synchronized
by means of special records played on
the new musical equipment of the
llo-llo Theatre. The records were
specially made for the "Jazz Singer"
and have been heard all over the
continent where patrons could not
tell the difference from Warner Bros.'
"talkies", thc Vltaphone tlself.
The mangement of tho llo-llo urges
upon all movie fans to make special
endeavor to he present on either the
14th, 15th, or 16th as "The Jazz Singer" with special music will be something different and well worth seeing.

Then from Alaska In 1920 came Wal- j
ter Coyne With u team of tniitiiinutc.'
Tiie favorite son of tho town of Ruby
brought something new fur the natives here to wonder about. He Introduced the Alaskan racing sleigh and
then showed Tbe Pas a hitch that j
was novel al that time as it was effac-
tlve. Goyne hitched two of his dogs j
abreast like a horse team, ami strung
three more out in front of these. And I
that strange hitch seemed to give the
maximum in pulling power. |
To make a long story short. Goyne
won the race easily.
However. In the 1921 derby, which
was run to Flin Flon and return, native mushers beat out the Arctic driver for prize money of $2,500, Alaskan sleighs and harness were used bv
tbe Mauitobans, but at the same time
il was shown that the southern husky
had more staying power than the Alaskan malamute,
Charley Morgan's team was tbe llrst
home in the 1921 event, and tbey repeated in the two following years,
giving Morgan possession of tbe cov-
etede Burns trophy.
Waiter Goyne, beloved sportsman,
the man who won the most gruelling
races In splte of the fact that he was
permanently lame, came to a tragic
end. One autumn he set on a training
trip with one of his teams, and never
returned alive.
Several   months   later   tbe   frozen
bodies of the musber and bis dogs
were found below the lee of a lake
near the Pas.   The outfit was dlscov-jg
ered in almost perfect driving position  A
Indicating that the man and the dogs:*
were  paralysed  almost instantly   by |
the frigidity of the water as soon an' I
they sank below the surface. jn
