"Roses of Picardy" Featured on
Ilo-Ilo Screen Friday and
Saturday
'-"Roses of Picardy" Is showing at
the Ilo-Ilo Theatre this Friday and
Saturday, It Is psychological study
of the effects of the war on a woman
an two men'.      .
A young Englishman touring the
battlefields finds himself in Honde-
becq, where his war life was spent
His memories take shape before him.
During the war Skene and his battalion were quartered at the Spanish
Farm. His duties as billeting officer
brought htm ln contact with Madeleine, mistress of the Farm. She seeks
Information' of a lover whom the war
toss taken from her and tor a time
consoles herself with Skene.
Not even the raw, however, can
alter the character of Madeleine.
Faithful In her heart to her faithless
lover, she accepts the situation philosophically. She does not deceive
herself either about her feelings for
Skene, to whom she yields out of pity
for his condition of war panic, knowing that it is only a. temporary affair.
Skene meets Madeleine again and
the climax shows her with her two
"children," the Frenchman, now blind
and her father, driven crazy by his
treatment at the hands of the Germans. The film closes on a note of
pathos, a wonderful scene that will be
remembered when other parts of tbe
film are forgotten.      .*,-....

After Serious Operation
Mrs. Tom Lewis, wife . ot "Tom"
Lewis, the well known baritone of the
Nanaimo Walsh Quartette, died ln the
Ladysmlth Hospital on Wednesday
morning,, following a serious operation. The deceased lady was very well
known, coming to Vancouver Island
ln 1912. For two or three years she
resided, with her husband In Cumberland, eventually moving to Nanaimo,
where a. permanent home was established.
The funeral takes place this (Friday) afternoon, a number of the members of the Cumberland Welsh Society Journeying to the Hub city to
pay their last respects. Those making
the Journey from here were Mr. and
Mrs. W. Davis, Mr. and Mrs. Morgan,
Mr.and Mrs. "Watty" Williams, Mr.
and Mrs. Hunden, Mrs. S. Davis.
Mrs. Jimmy Wilcock, ot Courtenay
(nee Miss Blod. Williams, of Cumberland) went down'to Nanainro two

War on Forest Fires

Minister of the Interior, whose department, in co-operation with Provincial Governments, various Forestry
Associations and public spirited citizens, is this coming week conducting
a campaign to focus public attention
on the need ot prevention of forest
fires.
Ships Not Available
To Carry B.C. Coal
Merchant   Marine   Ships   Not
Adapted for Carrying
Coal
Ottawa, April 18.—Since the government Is giving assistance to the
movement of Alberta and Nova Scotta
coal to the central markes, mine operators of Vancouver Island also
want the low transportation rate
arrangement by way of assistance in
water shipment of coal by way of
the Panama Canal to Montreal. The
matter was brought up In the committee on National Railways and shipping by A. W. Neill, M. P. for Comox-
Alberni, but the result was not hopeful.
Mr. Neill read a letter from one of
themlne managers of Vancouver Island suggesting that boats of the
Merchant Marine be utilised for the
traffic between Vancouver and Montreal In summer and he thought that
a fairly good market might be developed.
NO BOAT AVAILABLE
SAYS ECONOMIC CHIEF.
"Really we have not got a boat ln.
the marine service that Is available,"
said R. C. Henry, director of the
Bupreau of Economics, Canadian National Railways.
Boats on the Pacific Coast service
are now fully employed. The boats
which were now operating from Vancouver to Montreal were carrying full
cargoes and were not fitted as coal-
carriers. There Were, however, two
4400-ton boats available, but ln his
opinion they were altogether too small
to be considered' from, a commercial
viewpoint for such long hauls.
"WHAT ABE THEY.
600D FORI* ASKS M.P.
"Could anyone tell me what any ot
these ships are really good for?" asked Mr. Nlell. "So far, I have nev?r
been able to discover it"
The boats, it was explained, are
built for general trade and not as coal
carriers.
Mr. Neill was told, however, that
his suggestion would be explored further.
Cumberland Man to Carry
Conservative Banner

the forthcoming provincial election.
There was only one name placed before
the convention, the nomination being
made by Mr. A. Wastell, of Alert Bay,

the convention. Matters pertaining
to organization were then brought before the convention after which it adjourned.

Upper Island
Musical Festival
As the date for the upper-Island
Musical Festival approaches a brief
Justificatory narrative showing the
raison d'etre for such festivals may
not be unappropriate at this juncture.
As the official syllabus sets forth,
a- festival has tor its primary object
the cultivating and fostering of a
love for good music and through this
medium a spirit of friendly rivalry
is created among the younger musical
aspirants which cannot do otherwise
than prompt them to more earnest
endeavor ln this noble art. As Sir
Walford Davies, the eminent English
conductor and adjudicator has said
"In musical festivals the object ts not
to gain a prize or defeat a rival, but
to pace one another on the road to
excellence."
There Is, undoubtedly, a very great
educative value In musical festivals.
To begin with, they familiarise a great
number of people with goodmuslc—in
most cases at any rate. At an ordinary
concert the audience only hear a composition once; andin many a modern
Instance, once Is not enough to gain
any true knowledge or perspective
of its merits or beauty. Whereas, at
a competitive festival, Ihe audience
gets the opportunity to hear a work
played or sung through a number ot
times, which enables a fairly true
estimate of its value to be made. This
Is more evident ln that various interpretations are heard, and thus contrasting Impressions ot the same work
are made to throw light upon each
other, and ln so doing, the work Itself becomes clearer and its points
appreciated .
In the cose of the competitors themselves, a few weeks work at a fine
song, Quartette, trio or Instrumental
piece enables the intelligent musician
to gain a truer Insight Into the music
of the masters and thus is the cause
of good music inevitably enhanced.
Many singers and Instrumentalists
would never hear some of the best
works if it were not for the festival
syllabus. This phase of the subject
cannot be overstresed.
And again many an embryo prima
dona or virtuoso would never have
been heard were It not for the opportunities afforded for public performance at competitive festivals. It Is all
to Ihe good when young performers
get acclaimed to platform work, and
thus are able to avoid the "stage
fright" which many an older musician
suffers In concert work.
Further, not the least Important
and perhaps the most helpful , is the
kindly but expert advice and criticism
of theperformsnees given by the adjudicators. The general public, as
well as the musician concerned, has
the opportunity of listening to and
sharing these praises and criticisms.
To be given a chance to play or sing
before musicians of recognized standing such as will adjudicate at the Upper Island Musical Festival, should
in itself spur young musical aspirants
to enter. The friendly voice of helpful criticism is worth in Itself the
price of many lessons.
There Is undoubtedly a great musical revival taking place In this country at the present time, and British
(continued on page six)
the provincial Conservative leader: Mr.
O. F. Davie, M.L.A., for Cowlchan-
Newcsstle, Mr. Joshua Hinchcllffe, M.
L.A. for Victoria, and the newly nominated candidate, Dr. G. K. MacNaughton. Mr. J. N. McLeod, president of
the Conservative Association, made a
very efficient chairman.
Dr. MacNaughton was the first
speaker.- He said that when he was
pressed to allow his name to go before
the convention he was given the impression that politics was a very easy
job, with very little hard work to do
and everything quite agreeable, but
after being only three hours on the job
he was already on the night shift. He
said that at a very representative
meeting of delegates from various parts
of the riding they had given him the
honor of becoming the standard-bearer
at the forthcoming election. As the
result of the very many representations
made to him he accepted the honor ln
the spirit ln which lt was given and
would endeavor to do his best to carry
the Conservative standard to victory.
He was a novice ln practical politics
but he had looked on from the lower
benches and had come from a province
where politics were taken seriously.
As a resident of the Comox district
for the past 21 years ln the practice
of the medical profession lt had been
his lot to meet a great number of the
electorate in social gatherings and ln
a professional way.
Comox district, and this part In particular, was generally conceded to be
largely devoted to the farming and
logging Industries. He had been brought
up on a farm and the experiences he
had got ln those years had Impressed
upon his mind the experiences a farmer had to go through ln making ends
meet. In those days, too, he had had
experience ln the logging camps in
the'East and he thought he knew
enough about the logging industry,
first hand, to understand a good deal
of what was needed.
Another reason for his willingness
and readiness to accept the nomination
was the fact that they had ln the leader of the Conservative Party at the
present time a man who enjoyed the
confidence of the whole of the electorate of this province and he thought
that Dr. Tolmle was peculiarly adapted to become the next premier of the
province.
Mr. C. F. Davie, M.L.A., was then
called upon. Mr. Davie said he was
gratified to witness the Interest which
the people of this district had taken
in the Conservative party and in the
selection of a candidate to represent
them at the next election. From what
he had heard of the candidate he could
say they could be congratulated on
their choice.
He was the class of candidate who
not only the people of the Comox district but the province at large were
anxious to see come forward. He had
no doubt Dr. MacNaughton would
make an excellent candidate and bring
honor to the party and worthily represent the district.
Hon. Dr. Tolmle was the last speaker. He remarked on the enthusiasm
of the convention and said one would
go a long way before he saw another
like it. In horse terms he dscribed the
newly elected candidate as "standing
sixteen hands high, a good looker, a
a high hooker, full of speed and rarin'
to go." He said that Dr. MacNaughton
was an acquisition to the Conservative
Party of B.C. and also a man whose
future in public life would be great.
Dr. Tolmle graphically described the
undertaking that a government shouldered ln a province of the magnitude
of British Columbia where, he said,
one could bury twenty-five Swltzer-
Iands and have enough left to entertain all the tourists that could come
ln. He also touched on her geographical position, climatic advantages, mineral wealth, fisheries, etc. Particularly
there were great opportunities ln agriculture. Only a small portion of the
available farm lands was under cultivation and only six per cent of the
grazing lands was being made use of.
When one takes over the government
of B.C., he said, one is not taking over
a very light job.
With reference to farm loans, Dr.
Tolmle said that through the pressure
of the Conservative party the percentage charge had been lowered.

A. W. Neill and
Pulverized Coal
Local Member Heard in Interesting Speech at Ottawa
Mr. A. W. Neill, who was successful
ln having a resolution passed ln the
Federal House authorizing the trying
cut of pulverized coal by the government, delivered a very Interesting
speech ln support of his resolution.
The resolution and part of ithe speech
follows:
"Whereas the market for the output
of British Columbia coal mines Is seriously reduced by the competition of
fuel oil imported at an enormous cost;
"And whereas scientific research ln
Britain and elsewhere has demonstrated that coal, when used ln a highly
pulverized form, can successfully compete ln price and results, with fuel
oil;
"And whereas lt is very desirable
that the output of our mines should
be Increased and more labor employed;
"Therefore be lt resolved—that, ln
the opinion of this house, ln order to
test and demonstrate the possibilities
of pulverized coal, the government
should adapt one of their steamers on
the Pacific coast .and the furnace of
one ot the government public buildings
in British Columbia, to the use of pulverized coal from Vancouver Island
mines."
In speaking to his resolution, Mr.
Neill said:
Mr. Speaker, this Is another of the
many coal resolutions we have had
this session, but lt Is unique ln two
respects: ln the first place I do not
call lt a national coal policy, and in
First Aid

SITUATION WANTED
THE "Situation Wanted" column in the city
newspaper is filled with brutally blunt stories
of misfortune. Do you ever read that column ?
Here is a sample of these little tragedies in the
struggle of life:
"Married man, 6 children, sick wife. Must have
work at once. Will accept any kind of job . An
swer quick.  Box 384 News."
And here is another:
"Man 60 active, good address, former bookkeeper
desires light tmployment as wachman, elevator
or light porter work.  Box 493, Star-Times.'
In these short stories you can read of better
days—you can read in these stories something
that will make you think.
Were you ever out of a job ? Have you ever experienced that chilling sensation of not being able
to secure a suitable position? Do you know what
it means to lose a position and then be unable to
find another good place? Have you ever been cold
and hungry, tired and discouraged, while walking
the streets and trying to attach your name to a
weekly pay roll?
We hope not, and yet, this experience is sometimes the best thing that can happen to the individual who is unappreciative of a steady job or
a good position.
Seeking a situation looking for a job, advertising
for a position, While out of employment, is one of
the most pitiable pictures, for few opportunities
are open to the individual who is out of a job.
If you have a job, a situation, or a position, never
once lose your grip on until you are positively certain of something just as good or even a little
better.   Out of a job and you are "out of luck."
Be guarded about giving up a good job.for a
chance to walk the streets soliciting a situation,
for nearly all the employers have their doubts
about a man who must sell himself.
APRIL ADVERTISING
IN THE calendar of retail trade, every month
has its own individual characteristics. April
is a time when the public, by following newspaper advertising, can still pick up some goods
at low prices .which the merchant dislikes to
carry over until the fall. But the principal char-
cteristic of the month is in the news about the
spring styles. The warmth of the returning
sunlight sparkles in these announcements. The
descriptions of light clothing in gay shades suggest all the fascinations of summer travel, sport
and outdoor life. It is a pleasure to read the
spring advertising merely as a presage of "the
good old summer time" April is a month in
which people of taste and discrimiation enjoy
shopping because the assortment of goods is more
complete than it will be later. Economically mind-
minded people ask anxiously, however, whether
things are going to cost more now than if bought
later. Here is where it is up to the merchant to
tell what he has been doing. He has been planing
for this spring campaign for months past. If he
has been alert and watchful, and well informed
he has found opportunities to build up his 'stock
at prices that will please the public. Not every
merchant is able to buy at the right prices in these
times of shams. To do so calls for extended experience in a given line, thorough infprmation
about methods of manufacturing, and the gift of
driving a good bargain. The man Who is bright
and alert enough to cope successfully with these
conditions does not sit down in a corner of the
business district and wait for the public to come
to him. The same qualities of enterprise that
appear in his buying appear in his selling. You
will find his story in the advertising columns of
this newspaper.  It is worth your While to read it.

FIRES TAKE HEAVY TOLL FROM CANADIAN
FORESTS
T IS APPALLING to learn that since the arrival
of the white man in Canada, forest fires have
destroyed 607" of her primeval forest wealth.
Four or five times as much timber has been burned
in this country as has been cut for the uses of
man and the requirements of commerce. Dissipation of our accessible timber supplies within
a period of twenty-five years is forecast.
To bring home to the minds of Canadians before

It is understood at the railway department that the Campbell River Co.
may seek a revision of the railway plan
as approved by the department in order to re-locate the right-of-way somewhat, but no arrangements have been
made yet for a re-hearing of the matter before the government, lt was
stated at the Parliament Buildings.
The proposed railway line is an entirely new project and has no connection with existing logging enterprises

HEALTH SERVICE
of the
Canadian Medical Association
Question concerning Health, addressed to tbe Canadian Medical
Association, 184 College Street,
Toronto, will be answered. Questions aa to diagnosis and treatment will not be answered.
A Bad Habit Which Should Be
Stopped
All babies acquire bablts very readily, regardless ot whether the habits
are good or bad. A' baby who la rocked to'sleep a few times soon refuses
to go to sleep without such attention.
Tbe "Comfort," of all habits, Is the
most filthy and Inexcusable.
No mother would think of exposing
her toby to any communicable disease, but ihe does so if she allows the
child to use a "comfort." The "comfort" may fall to the floor or side-
calk, it may be touched by other
hands, lt ma/ rub against other things
flies may walk over lt, or, in many
n"i1i ys It may Ibecome soiled with
disease germs and carry them Into
tht mouth of the child.
When a child Is given the "corn-
tort" to send him to sleep, It generally drops from the mouth when the
child   Is   asleep   and   frequently
becomes the resting place for files
which have come trom any filthy
place. When the child awakes and
cries, the mother rushes to the baby
and places this soiled thing In Ills
mouth.
The baby cries for the "comfort
it has become a habit If he were
never given one, he would never want
one. It Is not natural for a child to
have something ln the mouth all the
time. Sucking a "comfort" does not
soothe the child sitter a few minutes.
It tires him and makes him irritable.
Like the constant chewing of gum
or sucking a dry pipe, lt causes an
unatural flow of saliva. The swallowing of this and the movement of
the Jaw causes an uncomfortable feeling like a hard lump back of the
throat.
Continued use of the "comfort" alters the arch of the mouth and frequently causes projecting upper teeth,
with a short, high upper Up, and proper chewing of food Is difficult, If not
Impossible,
There Is only one place for any
and all styles of "comforts"—the fire
or the garbage pall, never baby's
mouth.

New Food Mill
and Grain Elevator
Evidence of the exceptional growth
of the poultry and dairy business ot
British Columbia Is the Food' Mill and
grain elevator erected on Burrard Inlet at the foot of Rogers Street, Vancouver, by Buckerfleld's Limited, at a
cost of $250,006. ' This plant will relieve the pressure of the Company's
old mill at First Avenue, which is
still working day and night.
The erection ot this new mill brings
another industrial unit to the skyline of Vancouver's busy waterfront.
The Company is now letting a contract
wharf sheds and a. 220 foot berth tor
shipping. The plant is well located
to ship by rail and water.
Few people In British Columbia are
aware of the extraordinary growth of
the poultry and dairy industry in this
province, according to Mr. Bucker-
fleld, President. In eighteen months
the bird population had increased one
hundred per cent. This is accounted
for not only by the growing number
of poultrymen ell over the province.
but also by the expansion of well managed poultry farms, and the establishment of large poultry colonies at
points ln the lower Fraser Valley.
These are being operated on a
scientific basis, resulting ln an Increasing output of eggs and birds
seeking new markets in Eastern Canada and the United States. The possibilities that are awaiting successful
poultry men are best Illustrated by
a shipment recently from Seattle of
80,000 cases of eggs for South America
Eggs from the Pacific Coast are in
demand over the entire continent The
climate here makes the operation of
poultry farms a much easier task
than in the East. The reputation ot
British Columbia poultry has been
well established by the high records
our breeders have made all over the
world, for example, the U.B.C's Hen
No. 6. Better feeding of flocks has
become a very pronounced factor, In
decreasing bird mortality, increasing
operation a more profitalbe one.
In 1927 the estimate value o[ the
poultry industry ln British Columbia
was more than $7,500,000.00. Poultry
population Increased by twenty-three
per cent; egg production by eighteen
per cent; and egg exports by thirty-
five per cent Several shipments ot
chicks from British Columbia to Ottawa and other Eastern points have
been made without mortality or injury. This progress has brought a
report from a railway company remarking that "British Columbia, in
particular, has achieved signal
nown and has been despatching birds
to a number of foreign countries."
The Poultry Service Department of
Buckerfleld's Limited, Vancouver, ii
available without cost to all poultry
men and dairymen. Literature pertaining to poultry and dairy feeding
is generally provided by this department without charge.
To Ship Thousand
Buffalo Northward
Wainwright. Alberta, April 18—
Early in June the Canadian government will ship lion more buffalo, principally year-olds, from Waiwright
Park to the MacKenzic River District
in the north ,as has been done in the
past three years. A quarter of a century ago, anxious to save the buffalo
form extinction, the Canadian Government bought a herd of 715 from
Montana and estabished Wainwright
park. Within a few years, the herd
grew to so many thousands that a
slaughter was necesasry and buffalo
meat came on the market Then the
scheme of shipping the surplus animals north was adopted and found to
be satisfactory. Plans are nearly
completed for the extension of the
Wainwright park boundaries to the
Canadian National Railway tracks, so
that travellers on their way to and
from Jasper National Park and the
Pacific coast may glimpse the herd
from the windows of the train.
Canada has been wasting her forest
capital and today only 27% remains.

been given, by the fact that during

some time inspecting properties it
Shaughnnessy Heights and Wes
Point Grey.
Lord Wtlingdon- has openly intimated his desire to spend a part ot eact
year at the coast and in so dolm
would folaw the example of vice royalty in India and South Africa In botl
of which countries official and sum

When a man who 1b not used to thi

throws lt on the ground, he expects I.
to go out. But when an experienced
woodsman Is through with his match
lt IS out. He does not leave lt to expectation. He knows.

In Memoriam
In loving memory of Esther (Wee
Essy) beloved daughter Qf David and
Jeannie Logan, who died April 17th,
1927. at the age of eight years and
Blx months.
Had we but seen her still in life,
Or watched her dying bed,
Our hearts would not have felt so sore
The bitter tears we shed.
A sweet little face from our home is
gone,
A voice that we loved Is still,
A place Is vacant ln our hearts and
borne,
Which never can be filled.
Sleep on little darling and take thy
rest,
God called thee when He thought
It best,
On earth there's strife;   in Heaves
there's rest;
They miss you most who loved
you best. .   ,
Inserted by Daddy end Mama, Bisters and Brothers.
If every man, woman and child in
Canada would realize the danger of
fire, practise carefulness at all times,
and back up the fire ranger in his efforts to control fire outbreaks, Canada
would save millions of dollars worth
of timber every year.
The Living Forest
"Five hundred thousand Canadians draw 600 million dollars a year from t le forects and forest industries. It is surely cheapei to spend two cents an acre
on forest protection to kiep. these people in Canada
than to spend over 500 dollars a family to bring immigrants from foreign shores."

years ago the exports of coal from
the Vancouver Island mines to San
Francisco were so large that the operators maintained offices there for the
disposal of the coal, but that condition has long since passed away. We
do not ship any coal to San Francisco
now, but we import enormous quantities of fuel oil. During the first half
of 1827 we imported 59,000,000 gallons
of oil on which duty was paid, ln addition, to which large quantities "were
brought in by the steamship companies ln bond, which were used by
them without that Importation being
recorded in the customs returns. Making an approximate allowance for the
amount so brought ln, and taking that
into consideration we find that ln
British Columbia alone we pay something like $5,000,000 a year to the United States for fuel oil. That Is equivalent to about 600,000 tons of coal, or
nearly one-half the annual output of
the Vancouver Island coal mines today. The production of that quantity
of coal would support a town with a
population of some 6,000 or 6,000, and
since we neither eat nor wear coal
this would mean an Increased demand
for the products of the soil and for
the manufactured goods of the east.
Therefore this Is not a purely local
question,
Prom time to time we have naturally looked about us for something
which will offset this importation of
fuel oil, and the first thing that was
suggested by our Conservative friends
was a tariff on that article. On one
occasion an election was held mainly
on that Issue. I will recall that about
the year 1922 I went to Hon. Mr.
Fielding, the then Minister of Finance,
asking, him to Increase the duty on
fuel oil; as I went Into his office I saw
a large number of gentlemen, and indeed I might say a large number of
large gentlemen, coming out. They
were of the (lass described by Shakespeare as fat men, bulky, thick, well-
fed, sleek-looking gentlemen, evincing
very aspect of prosperity, and as they
came out I eyed them with some curiosity. Then I went ln to see the minister, and humbly proffered my claim
for an increased duty on fuel oil. With

that   simplicity   which   characterized
me In those days, and indeed does so
yet. I said, "Why, Mr. Fielding, the
Conservatives will support you in increasing the duty because they pledged themselves to do so ln the recent
election, and moreover lt Is a part of
| their fiscal policy."    The kindly old
I gentleman smiled at me with his eyes
i tired with half a century's experience
f politics and said, "Mr.  Neill,  did
you see those gentlemen who went
out just as you came In?" I said, "Yes,
what about them?"   He said, "They
were a deputation from the Canadian
Manufacturers' Association asking that
the duty be removed altogether."
Now much has been said of recent
years in connection with research,
particularly this session and last session, and I thlfck the hon. member
for Vancouver Centre (Mr. Stevens)
and myself are entitled to some little
credit, because I can recall that we
advocated research years ago and we
got very little sympathy and very little attention on the matter. Well,
this is a typical Instance of very moderately expensive research. To demonstrate Its advantages would Involve very small expense, and lt would
be of great benefit even to the government, because If they equipped their
boats on the Pacific ocean it would be
a great saving to them. Even on the
hydrographic boats the use of smokeless fuel would be of great advantage.
It would give an impetus to our coal
mines and react on other lines of business not only ln British Columbia,
but throughout the Dominion.
I therefore trust that the government will see their way to give this
fuel a fair trial by equipping one of
their steamers with the machinery necessary to use pulverized coal, and also permit one of their public buildings
either in the city of Vancouver or the
city of Victoria, to use pulverized coal
from the mines of Vancouver Island.
If every man, woman and child in
Canada would realize the danger of
fire, practise carefulness at all times,
and back up the fire ranger in his efforts to control fire outbreaks, Canada
would save millions of dollars worth
of timber every year.
Klondyke Dance
Usual Success
The annual Klondyke Dance held
ln the Gaiety Theatre Wednesday under the auspices of the Courtenay-Co-
mox Board of Trade was the usual success. Wm. Douglas, chairman ln
charge of all arrangements had left
nothing undone to Insure the success
of the evening, and was assisted by
energetic sub-committees. There was.
of course, dancing for all who wanted
to dance; there was roulette, crown and
anchor, black jack, lucky strike, etc.,
to say nothing of the bar with an hon-
est-to-goodness foot-rail where sundry
refreshments, hot dogs and other good
things were dispensed. The financial
receipts were good and will no doubt
help the publicity fund of the board
to a considerable extent.

In concluding Dr. Tolmle thought
that the business of the government
should be conducted economically, not
niggardly, because British Columbia
needed money expended. The Federal
government should contribute towards
highways because they had made more
money through the Introduction of automobiles which necessitated wider
roads with better surfaces and the Dominion Government was one of the
larger users of roads. The business of
the country, he said, should be carried on in the same manner as a private business and as long as he was
at the head of the party and If they
were ln power In Victoria he proposed
to run the business of the country on
businesslike lines.
At the close of the meeting a very
hearty vote of thanks was tendered
the speakers on motion of Mr. Beber
Cooke.
