FORMER LIEUT.-GOV.
PASSES AWAY
Victoria, B. C, Aug. 9-In tho
passing of Hon. fc.dgar Df-wdney,
former Lieutenant-Governor of
British Columbia the province
has lost another member of that
fast-fading band of splendid pioneers who materially helped to
mould her destinies. {British Columbia was the scene of his earliest exploits and most of his life's
work was carried out within her
boundaries. ln Victoria and
throughout the community his
loss is being deeply mourned.
. He died suddenly at his residence, 2740 Cadboro Bay Road,
shortly after 11 o'clock. His
death, which was due to heart
failure, came as a great shock
to his many friends, as he gave
every appearance of being in his
usual robust health until within
half an hour from the end. He
was seriously ill about a year ago
and while he had been somewhat
weak ever since, he suffered no
relapse and appeared to be gaining his former strength. He was
down town en Monday, the day
before his death.
* The late Hon. Edgar Dewdney
was in his eighty-second year,
having been born on November
2, 1835, in Devonshire, England.
He received his eductation not
far from his birthplace and qualified as a civil engineer. About
the time he gained the certificates
to practice his chosen profession
the richness of the Cariboo gold
lields was attracting world-wide
attention and the surrounding
country was slowly but surely
being developed in order to provide adequate communication to
the mines for the prospectors and
settlers attracted there from all
parts of the world. It was therefore not unnatural that Mr.
Dewdney made British Columbia
the choice as the field of his labors.
In the year 1859 he left England for the Northwest and upon
his arrival here was almost immediately taken into the service
of Sir James Douglas, Governor
of the Colony, and of Colonel
Moody, K. E., of New Westminster. He was engaged to lead a
survey party tp lay out llie town
of New Westminster, and in the
undertaking, which was carried
out with efficiency and dispatch,
he gained tho reputation which
placed him in the favour of his
employers. In 18(10 he built the
old Hope trail lo Similkameen,
which has stood the test of time
remarkably well and has been
only slightly changed since the
flrst survey over half a century
ago. The trail was to afford access to the mines in that locality
and was at. rlrst intended to go
as far as Rock Creek, although
the extension was not effected
until some time later. Mr. Dewdney did a good deal of work on
the roads near Princeton, and
where Keremeos now stands,'
and built a trail to Midway, which
was used by the miners and prospectors west of Kossland and
through the Boundary country.
Sir James Douglas, during his
term of governorship, conceived
of the plan to make a passage
through the Similkameen country
to Wild Horse, and the region
beyond with the ultimate purpose of joining up with a wagon
'•'road to the Rocky Mom tains, approaching from the East. Tom
Spence, whose nnme has been
commemorated by Spence's
Bridge, would probably have been
put in charge of the party to carry out the undertaking, but it
was not until Governor Seymour
came into office that it was de
cided to make a start and Tom
Spence was killed soon afterward.
So the work devolved upon Mr.
Dewdney, who had shown by his
capable performance of other less
important tasks to be the most
reliable engineer obtainable at
that time in the colony.
Boy Scouti Enjoy Outing.
A large number of the Boy
Scouts spent a very enjoyable
holiday of two weeks at Dr. Mil-
lards Beach, under Scoutmaster
Taylor. The boys marched, led
hy their bugle band, from the
City HaH right down to the beach.
Although the weather was not
all that could he desired, yet the
boys showed the true grit the
Scouts are made of and all went
in to make the best of what came
along. A few days before closing
of camp Mayor Parnham and a
few friends went down to assist
in the sports which were to take
place. The afternoon was delightful and the boys entered
with a will into the sports which
wore got up for their entertainment. The following were the
prizewinners:—
50 yds Dash, open, 1st prize
50cts. ScoutGoods, Chas. Willard.

Scoutmaster Taylor left for
Nanaimo a few days before closing camp and Rev. Bischlager
who is also a Scoutmaster took
charge of the camp. The officers
and members of the Boy Scouts
desire to take this opportunity to
thank those who gave voluntaiy
donations as well as supplies
which were much appreciated.
They also wish to convey to Dr.
Millard their thanks for the use
of the field. After a splendid
holiday under the best of care and
discipline the Boys returned to
their homes greatly invigorated
by their stay at the beach.

LLOYD GEORGE
London, Aug. 8.-(By F. A.
McKenzie)—"I have no words
adequate to express my admiration for the splendid appearance
of the Canadians," said Rt. Hon.
David Llovd George to Major-
General Sir Sum Hughes after he
had finished his review of a division yesterday. It was, significantly enough, Mr. Llojd
George's first public military ceremony since his appointment as
minister of war. He spoke with
good reason, for the division surprised even those who knew it
well. Its formation, equipment
and perfection in details were
worthy of comparison with the
old regular armies. The men's
physique surprised everyone.
Some battalions, particularly the
Highlanders and the Grenadiers,
seemed like long lines of giants.
I last saw this division when the
King reviewed it. The improvement since then is immense and
it stands today ready for the
field. It will take its place on the
fighting line more perfectly
equipped than any before it. The
men make no secret of their intention to break all records.
Brig.-General Odium's first appearance as a brigadier-general
aroused special interest, for his
fame as a modern soldier already
has reached far beyond the Canadian lines. Old professional
soldiers of the continental armies
are watching him with the same
interest that the leaders "of the
British army watched General
Turner during the Boer war.
Mr. Lloyd George's speech at
the close of the review, delivered
to a semi-circle of officers, gathered around his motor car, was
the most remarkable oration ever
uttered by a British war minister
to combatant ranks. The war
minister was moved by intense
feelings. Profoundly religious,
the address deeply moved every
hearer. It also wos instinct with
the sense of victory.
• Brig-Gen. V. W. Odium, D. S.
0., of Vancouver, has made history in the great European conflict. It was he who when he saw
that months and months of trench
warfare were inevitable, conceived the idea of bombing the enemy
and inflicting damage by nightly
trench raids. To what proportions this mode of warfare grew
is common knowledge and possibly without it the allies might
have been farther south than
they were when the big drive
started, for the success of the
Canadian lieutenant-colonel's
bombing spread like wildfire a-
long the French ft ont. with the
result that a party of officers rep-
senting the French general staff
came to the trenches occupied by
Lieut. Col. Odium's men. and after witnessing the work of his
bombers, immediately recognized
the worth of this, method of
fighting, and its adoption became
general along all the allied fronts.

PRODUCTION AND THRIFT
Boys and Girls as Workers.
"Everyone at work" isthecall
during War Time. The more
men recruited, the greater the
responsibility on those left at
home. Men who have worktd
hard and saved some money so as
to spend their old age in comfort
* will be turning in again to help
their sons on the farms, or will
step in to take the places of sons
who have joined the Colours.
Women, the busiest of whom
seem always able to do something
more, will be dividing their time
between household duties and
outdoor work. Young men from
the farm will no doubt cut short
their term at school or college
ancl lend a hand at spring work
and stay with the farm operations until the crops are harvested. Large numbers of soldiers
will get temporary leave. Are
there any others who can lend a
hond in producing? What about
the boys and gills who have been
receiving instruction in school
gardening? A pamphlet just issued by the Dominion Department of Agriculture sets forth in
illustrated and descriptive form
how school garden work has been
carried out in all the provinces of
Canada. What are the boys and
girls doing now? What is their
education and training worth?
Now is their opportunity to demonstrate at home in the most
practical manner what they have
been taught at school. The boys
and girls of Canada, thousands in
number, should be able to do
their bit in conducting small gardens at home Boys' and girls'
patriotic gardens should produce
tons upon tons of fresh veget-i
ables for their home supply, and
they can readily learn how to put
up the surplus for winter use.
Production along this line is
patriotism.
Then what about waste material? Old paper and rags are
needed in our industries, so are
metals and bottles and rubber and
a score of other things. The
country needs material and cannot afford to have waste. The
saving and use of waste are as
important as production. Boys
and girls can make money out of
scrap. The soldiers at the front
would like to get news from
home. Boys and girls can send
Ihem some papers, Wrap up the
papers and mail them to The
Canadian lied Cross, 14 Cockspur
Street, London, S.W., England.
KNEW ALL ABOUT IT.
M. A. Macdonald is now well
in the going in the election, but
hs will find that "the going" is
not in his direction. At Victoria
he talked half the audience out
of the hall before his tale of woe
was nearly told. He is compelled
to use all the time at his disposal
in an effort to disclaim any connection with the gang of pluggers who helped to elect him,
b'-it the people have long ago decided that Mr. McDonald knew
all about the conspiracy and was

The definitions given by children are at times very amusing. A
little boy came to his mother with
a complaint the other day and
said: " Maw, Willie is a mugwump, and I ain't going to sleep
with him no more."
"Why, Johnny," said his
mother, "what do you mean? A
mugwump?  What is that?"
Why, don't you know? But
then you women can't vote, so
you oughtn't to be expected to
know nothin' 'bout pol'tics. Pa
knows an' he says a mugwump
is a chap what won't take either
side, an' that's Willie all over.

knob puts the flame at any desired point. It won't
creep up or change.

cioRged with soot. You can bake a loaf of bread or broil a steak
far better than with a coal range
because the flame is continuously
steady, The New Perfection gives
perfect combustion and greatest economy.

Jock had always had to worlc too
hard to learn much from books; his
knowledge had been culled front Nature's own fount.
But Jock was determined when he
landed In Canada that none should
take the rise out of him, tind kept
himself alert accordingly.
His native caution, however, deserted him on the first morning of his
arrival at the wilderness farm where
he was to undergo his breaklng-ln.
"What's yon beast?" he Inquired.
"That's a young moose."
"Och, dry up!" retorted the lad
from Scotland. "If that's a young
moose, I'd like to Bee ane o' yer auld
