Eisteddfod Is
Microcosm Of
Cumberland  Welsh  Society  to
Celebrate St. David's Day
With Concert, Supper
and Dance
The Hoynl National Eisteddfod ot
Wiili** will take plaOg lu Uo weeks
time, in preparation for this great
Welsh event nn Immense uinouut uf
rehcaraul and training Ih being put
forth. For months choristers havo
met In practice na often aa live and
six times per week, assiduously study*
Ing the test pieces, Tlie Nationnl
Eisteddfod is a microcosm of Wales.
There you may see preacher and
ploughman, collier and clerk, all rubbing shoulders uud all under tho influence of the Intangible and untranslatable H"wye" of the Eisteddfod".
There you will hear what proves a:i
unforgettable experience, the singing
ot Welsh hymns set to haunting Welsh
tunes by the massed thousands, every
one a singer. There ia the harp played ln Us own land hy those who love
Its music. There one can hear the
children singing the old folk Bongs
tbat have come down through the centuries, and there too, may he seon
folk dances that were da;ccd on
hearth and village green In tho time
of the Tudors.
Welnh People Love Pageantry
Welsh people have a particular
fondness for pageantry, whicli finds
full expression nt the annual Elistedd-
t„e morning sessions of the Gorotld
d.e re enactments of the early days of
romance. Tho bards arc gathered in
their multi-colored robes, .lie oratorJt
and the curious ceremonial that accompanies the proceedings are inspiring scenes, and the crowning of tho
hard in the Eisteddfod pavilion—a
huge wooden structure, is a most impressive ceremony. The adjudicator
announces the winner of the chief
poe.ry competition, who is at Ilrst onl.
known by a penname, but at the
award is asked to reveal himself.
Amid a tense silence the successful
poet stands up in the audience and lg
at once escorted to the platform hy
two bards and amiii enthusiastic applause. He is attired In bardic robes,
Ud the Gorsedd Sword, half unsheathed, Is held over him by the
Archdruld, who in a loud voice calls
three times: "A oes heddweh?" (Is it
peace?)- Three times thfe answer
comes rolling back. "Heddweh"
(peace). Tbo sword Is pushed home
Into its scabbard and the now bard
takes his seat in the carvel oaken
chair which ho has won.
The Cumberland Welsh Society celebrate St ,Davi"s Day every yer. but
nothing so ambitious as a Eisteddfod
has been attempted. Probably, Wales
ls the onl country in the world whero
such a celebration would or could be
appreciated. Local Welshmen are,
however, not lotting tbe day go hy
without a celebration nnd with that
end In view have boon fortunate in
obtaining the services of Profc-sor
Morgan, of Vancouver and his concert
party. A flrst clasa concert will be
held at the Ilo-Ilo commencing at
7 o'clock, followed by a supper at tho
Memorial Hall and ihe climax will
come with a monster dance al tbo Hollo. The charge for admission has
been set at $1.25 which Includes, concert, supper and dance.

some economy had been introduced.
It was felt that an effort should bo

themselves had raised quite a lot ot

Variety Concert Put on at Anglican Hall In Place
of Play
The Holy Trinity Amateur Theatrical Society Intended putting on a
popular comedy, "Between the Soup
and Savory," but owing to sickness
■ ;,l to postpone the play. Instead a
variety concert, with the assistance
of several friends was held on .Monday night and considering the shortness of the time allowed for such a
concert, tbe result was truly remarkable. The variety took on a regular
Chinese atmosphere, the stage being!
made to represent a Chinese .laundry,
with tbo skit of tbe evening being "No
tlckee, no washee." The programme
itself was drawn up In truly Chinese
fashion, the local artists being given
regular Cbinsee names as a perusal of
ihe programme revealed. In the skit
"No tlckee, no washee." Fraser Watson played the Chinese laundryman,
being assisted by L. II. Finch as a

"LILAC TIME" at the Ilo-Ilo Theatre this Friday-Saturday PAGE TWO
The Cumberland Islander
SPORTSMEN are reading with great interest the new
legislation proposed by Attorney General Pooley for
the setting up of a separate game department with
several districts in the province and the fostering of a
game conservation spirit.
Wheu we have a gamo department devoted to increasing the game of the province and game wardens who will
spend their time shooting off pests, feeding game birds
in severe weather, studying game conditions iu thc hills
and so forth, we will be able to keep our province as a
game  paradise.
The establishment of a new game department with the
employment ot more men will naturally mean additional
expense. Some ways of meeting this cost were suggested
by the Penticton Hod and Gun Club at its last meeting.
It is proposed that ihe ordinary firearms license which
now covers birds, black bear and deer and costs $2.50 bc
restricted to birds only and that bear and deer bc pu:
under the $5 big game license. Any man going after bear
or deer should pay an extra ¥2.60 for the privilege, thc
club  members  felt,
Furthermore, nnd what Is perhaps more important still,
the club urged that substantial Increases be made In the
hunting licenses granted to non-residents A study of tbe
anual game reports of the province shows tbat an increasingly large number of Americans came here not only for
big game shooting, hut also for deer and birds and for
It is argued possibly that they leave a good deal of
money In tbe province through their travelling and out-
titling expenses. This Is all quite true In the case of the
big game hunters, although it does not apply to any extent to thoso wbo hop north across the border for deer,
say, In the Kettle Valley.
Essentially the game in British Columbia should be for
tbe British Columbians. The day may come wben liko
the remainder of the continent, we will have but little left.
If outsiders cau afford tbe expense of an expedition Into
B.C. to shoot our gamo, lhey can afford to pay handsomely
for the privilege. Hon. Mr. Pooley evidently recognizes
this argument as his new proposals include a substantial
increase In the non-resident big game license fee.
Insofar as the encouragement of fishing goes, it might
be possible to do much with an angler's license. Tbls ts
not very popular In many quarters because of the possibility of a fee keeping the youngsters of tbe family from
llshing. But surely, nt least an adult license foe of $1 per
year could bo imposed aud ihe proceeds be used for stocking tbe lakes und streams of the province,
At the present time llshing Is under tbe control uf
Ottawa In most respects although there seems to bo a
division of authority lu this province.
Thc local fisheries warden, Mr. Cartcll, Is doing goo,l
work In stocking waters of this district and should receive the encouragement of all of tbo clubs. No doubt
If the department had more money It could make greater
expenditures. - -Penticton Herald.

Campbell    River    Nurses    Are
Forced Out to Make Room
for Patients
Victoria, Feb. 14.—British Columbia
faces an acute hospital problem, and
there seems no immediate way out of:
it, according to striking evidence given to the public accounting committed
of the Legislative Wednesday by V.
D, Walker, deputy provincial secretary ]
who lias been associated with hospit.il j
administration for more than two decades, j
.Nurses Crowded Out I
Demands for hospital grants are
pouring In on the government, Mr.
Walker said, and most of them seem
justified by existing needs. In Campbell River, for Instance, he said, the
situation was so sorlous that nurses
had moved out of their quarters to
make room for patients and patients
also were being placed in store-room.^.
When G. S. Pearson, Liberal of Nanaimo, nskod whether hospital grants
were promised by the government
years ahead, Mr, Walker replied that
hospitals often cameto the government in advance of construction to
secure grants for tbe future and sometimes  their requests  wore granted.
He said taxpayers of B.C. are paying
$530,000 a year for hospitals, and he
favored tbe Idea of taxes for hospitals
on a similar basis to school taxes.
One of the chief weaknesses lu the
hospital financing system, said G. A.
Walkem, chairman of the committee,
is the poor collection of fees, and the
fact that same people seem to think
they do not have to pay for services
even  if they have the money. !
Dr. W. II. Sutherland declared the
hospital problem would become more
acute ns (he tendency of the times was
to uso hospitals to a greater extent
than ever before.
The hospital problem can be solved
by adequate health services. Dr. H. K.
Young, secretary of the provincial
board of health, told the committee.
"Give mo a full-time medical health
service and I can save you half the
money you arc constantly giving to
hospitals," he said,
"Thirty per cent, of the cases cared
for In hospitals should never bc there.
Those  cases  should  he  prevented."
Prevention Saves Money i
Dr. Young (Hinted striking facts tn
prove that municipalities which had
adopted preventive methods bad reduced their hospital bills surprisingly.
In the same way. venereal diseases
clinics in Victoria and Vancouver had
reduced the number nf venereal cases
In Essondalo mental home by f>0 per
cent, in five years.
"The  $85, i  spent   on  the  clinics
saved the province between $500,000
and $600,1  In that one institution."
he said.
"We are demonstrating every day
tbe value of prevention."
The committee will prepare a report for the Legislature stressing tbo
economic Importance of preventive
medicine and health education In order to strengthen tbo hands of the
govornmont In making necessary expenditures.

Say B.C. Coaling
Ports Lead Coast
British Columbia coaling ports
wbieb include Vancouver and the nine
ports of Vancouver Island, lead ln the
business of bunkering deepsea and
coastwise ships on the Pacific Coast,
according to figures compiled by thc
Vancouver Merchants' Exchange following a claim made by Seattle that
it Is ilie leading hunker port.
It appears that recently a British
marine publication printed a statement from a private shipping company that Its Pacific ships bunkered
at British Columbia ports because of
better facilities. A Seattle bunkering
firm protested to the British paper, declaring (bnt all but one European lino
had discontinued bunkering at Brltisii
Columbia ports.
After Investigation the Merchants'
Exchange took up the cudgels in defense of British Columbia ports, forwarding to the British publication a
statement declaring that while three
or four lines in the U.K.-Continent
trade take a few hundred tons of fuel
at Seattle in order to reach their main
fuel bunkering ports at the Panama
or in the Wost Indies, all other regular lines trading from Vancouver Island.
In 192S the coal ports of British
Columbia loaded 202.106 tons of conl
of which 100,000 tone were for deepsea
vessels, and 36,000 tons for coastwise.
Tbe Seattle total for 1928 waa 65,000

The Tragedy Of A
West Coast Race
A Review by G.  V. Ferguson
There nre parts of the world, per-1 were of noble blood in Temlaham the
haps, which stands impervious to the land  o£   their  tribe  on   the   Upper
Impact uf tho West. Somewhere, perhaps, there stands some use or custom the stuff of which is stout enough
to stand the relentless hammering
of the White Man, dynamic and dreadful, secure In the power of the in-
Skeeua,, a land which once had been
a paradise on earth, if tribal legend
was io be believed, but a land in
which through war anil dissension,
evil had taken root and flourished.
Alan's first disobedience had been fol-
Btruments   he   employs.    Somewhere  lowed by other lapses, and in 1887,
perhaps, there is such a haven; somewhere, perhaps, tho strength ia there.
13ut that haven was not Temlaham,
iiur have the Indian tribes of the
Upper Skeenn the fibre nor the force
to face the Btorm of modem life.
Primitive civilization has much to
comment) It. Within lis llmltes, it is
firm, secure, embedded deep in customs anil usages, hearing tho holy
sanction of untold ages. "Uut they are
Stiff With their years, stiff and brittle
and unsafe. Ho it was that Temlaham fell. Life was good thore in Its
fashion until the Time Spirit swept
down the Skeena gorges. The blast
crackled over Temlaham, and all Its
totems ami ancestral magic availed
ii mn one whit Down came Temlaham, aud in the wreckage came also
the flotsam of the tribes, Kamalmuk
nn dSunbenms, Neetah, and Bitten
Wrists, weohah, G reat-wlnd-of-the-
air, ar.d all the rest. Today little Is
left. There are still Indians in the
mouutaius and ou tho rivers. There
are still canoes on the rivers and totems gaunt on the shores. The
Wolves, the Ravens and the Firewoods still have their being, hut the
numbering of their days is long since
past. Their lives are a tale already
told. Temlaham is gone, dead and
gone these forty years and more, anil
those still living recount those yesterdays as part of a legend belonging
to the pasl -the last sad story of a
savage grandeur now gone forever.
This then is the story which MarlUB
Barheau, the Dominion ethnologist
nnd folk-lorist, has to tell: a story
told with Infinite sympathy, restraint
and skill, nud now enshrined In a
volume admirably produced and beautifully illustrated. How Mr. Uarbeau
tote those legends from their tribal
resting-place would make a story in
itself. The matter of the book is Indian. Tlie form, however, is the author's, and the skill he has shown is
proof of his zeal in a great task, for
it' we must take their heritage from
them (ns is written and ordained) at
least we should erect worthy monuments in honour of those tribes who
who once stood regnant in the land.
This volume forms such a tribute. May
there bc many more.
the subject has dignity. There may
be many who can see little In such
a theme. To them, as their train roars
down the rock bound tracks along
the Skeena, the little Indian villages,
men' clusters of wretched hovels,
clinging to the beaches, may seem
sordid enough, compared with the
steam-heated luxury of woll-built
city homes where all the mechanical
devices of thc great age of machines
hnve joined hands to make life easy
nnd comfortable. To others, as their
tourist vessels glide through the Inside passage of the Pacific Coast, the
Indians who gaze at them from dock
aud shore wrapped In thoir filthy
rags, are not impressive spectacles:
"Just Indians, my dear, and my God
how they do smell." Such, perhapp,

"Hearken! In Hanamuli's keeping
are the sacred traditions of Temlaham
of epic struggles between the Fire-
weeds and the Havens, of an age of
bliss In the laud of plenty, and of the
downfall nnd dispersion long ago.
Hearken, you all, and remember to
the end of time! Its rehearsal will
recall how the hunters of Keen-
ley once went down to defeat at tbe

dels, how the last of them, Shawah,
and her daughter, were redeemed L*V

FIreweeds and the Havens was smothered in fire and blood, as we still remember to this day."
The scene, a foetid native hut, the
audience, iish-stained nnd dirty, the
singer a squaw furbished in her tawdry trappings for a savage, pagan
ceremony. But the theme, the grandest that man cau sing! The Homeric
epic, the story of a noble past, the
hope of a glorious destiny. Long into
the night the singer held her place.
But Kamalmuk laughed nnd went
out. The ancient story now and again
still had power to move him, but the
attraction of the white's trading pOHt
now meant more to hlm. Honorable
association with the white conquerors
nftant more to him than reverence of
a dead pnst. He laughed and went

Wrists, was laid low In the moment

Rex Ingram filmed abroad for Metro-
Goldwyn. The famous picture comes

22nd and 23rd.
It has deteriorated scarcely at all
In the twenty-five years since Mr.
Hichens thinly disguised it as being
on the "oasis of Beni-Mora overlooking the great Sahara desert."
The garden, considering its unique
desert surrounding, is one of the most
beautiful estates in the world and
certainly the most artistic in Africa.
From It you get a wide view of tho
Sahara. The garden itself is a mass
of towering palms and rich growth of
grass and fruit trees so thickly planted that the tropical sun can hardly
pentrate. It takes in about eight
acres. A marble statue of a purple
dog described by Hichens, adorns tho
1 twn.
The original designer and owner
was Count Lnndon, n Frenchman. He
ts now S5 yenrs old and still living.
He gave tbe estate to his sister on
her bethrothal. When she died the
magnificent wedding present was loft
to his niece, who now occupies It part
of the year. Visitors are allowed In
at all times.
The estate is such a sliowplacc,
thanks to the publicity It has received
from the novel, play and motion picture, that the big travel bureaus now
make out touring itineraries which
read "Algeria, Biskra, "The Garden
of Allah' and Tunis." The tours take
fifteen days.
It Is five days by these six-wheeled
motor caravans from Algiers on the

During ihe receni cold Bnap, greater
Interest than ever before has been
evinced In Un- protection and feeding
of birds, who have a hard time
scratching a living, according to Major Mon let tb, secretary of the Victoria
and District Fish and Game Association. Feed, consisting of crushed
mixed grain with a necessary portion of grit, has been supplied from
the Provincial Game Farm at Elk
Lake, under tbo able direction of
Game Warden Jones. Acting under
the instruction of the Provincial
Ciame Hoard ami in conjunction with
the Victoria and District Fish and
(lame Association, the work was carried out very efficiently.
The greatest .sufferers in the cold
weather are the imported same bints
and mosi of all tbe California quail,
which are naturally accustomed lo
warmer climes. Further handicapped
by their short leg3, these little birds
find it very diffioult to scratch their
food when tho ground is covered with
ti carpet of snow. The favorite dish
for quail is .seeds and grain, tliey being particularly fund of tho seeds of
broom. Undor ordinary weather conditions these seeds are found In large
qiianiiiU -*. around any broom patch.

In 'hi- placing the grain on the
ground, careful Instruction!] had to
he enrried out. It was obvious that
careless spilling nf tho food on tbe
snow would have been of little or no
use, but those responsible for the distribution of this grain cleared the
snow and made small traits leading
tn the location of the food. Some
three tons of grain has been used in

who provide so much sport tor Vancouver Island's sportsmen,
Farmers, and people in many otlier
walks of life, all combined to assist,
and man., telephone calls and letters
from residents in outlying districts

, lost no time i.i seeing that grain was

All surveys of or affecting Dominion lands may be made only by those
qualified. In each province, however,
there arc lands over which the province has jurisdiction and legal surveys affect lug these lands may be
made only by a duly qualified surveyor for that particular province. As
tlie technical qualifications are very
similar in the province and the Dominion, It Is quite often the case that
a Dominion Land Surveyor has also
qualified to make surveys in one or
more of the provinces and many of
tbem have established provincial practices.
The list of Dominion Land Surveyors,  past   and   present,  carries   the
names of many distinguished  Cana-
ians.   Dr. E. Devllie, Dr. W. F. King,
Dr. 0. J. Klotz, 'were three outstand-

If love levels ail ranks, it also overshadows even events of world import,
so far as lovers are concerned. And
as most of tlie world ls composed of
lovers and all tlio world loves them,
it is not surprising that "Lilac Time,"
First National's big new special whicn
opened last night at the llo-llo with
Colleen Moore as the star, enthralls
by reason of the love story it tells to
even a greater extent than because of
the World War background.
First National has supplied a pic
ture, perfectly directed by George
Fitzmaurice, wherein a little Freucli
girl aud an English aviator are tha
principals. Colleen Moore i3 the girl,
Jeannine, nnd Gary Cooper ia the
young ace. Both contribute brilliant
The audience responded to the magnificent scenes of the air battles; the
movement of the troops from a provincial village before the enemy advance—all of which were marvelously
presented. Bul it wept with Colleen
Moore, laughter with her, longed, aa
did she, for peace, tbat love might not
be thwarted In its purpose.
The work of the star is of that
quality which defies the critic's analysis. She simply is the character
she portrays, it is more than acting
it is consumate art. Miss Moore has
added to her list ot screen portrayals

Mr. Staghall, Comox District, was
the next speaker, and stated that the
educational survey of 1924 was a big |
thing, but he objected to remedies be-
Ing applied piecemeal and thought the[
whole affair could wait until the whole
system of taxation was gone over in J
every phase.
On a question being asked as to the
E. Ss N. Belt dole, Mr. Mantle told how
a bill was put through to help struggling schools in tho widely scattered
population, by paying the teachers' I
salaries. He had learned on fairly;
good authority, however, that if the
government was approached in tlie pro-'
per manner they would agree to post-
pone this new burden until the whole'
taxation problem was gone over.
Mr, Avent then read a petition which
was being put around for signatures, as
"Whereas the entire system of taxa- ■
tion is being considered by the govern-
ment, that this meeting petition the
Department of Education to hold over
the present amendment until such sur-'
vey is included."
Mr. William Duncan said that although he had no voice in tlie rural
dlstrlot, he being a taxpayer of Courtenay, still he was interested enough
to attend, and his own opinion was that
the whole expenses of the educational
system of British Columbia, outside of
the unversities. should be paid out of
consolidated revenue: then the government would be put to the need of securing mv sources of money raising.
They policed the province, and looked;
after the Forestry Department, Asylums
and other phases of provincial life., and
wns there any good reason why education should be different?
Dr. G. K. MacNaughton, our member, j
entered at this moment, accompanied
by Mrs. MacNaughton, nnd Mr. Duncan'
was asked to go over his point again for
tho doctor's benefit.
Mr. Mnntle was then asked to out-!
line the trend of thought throughout
the Valley, as it was typified at this
Mr. Ault again went over tile figures
of Tsolum Consolidated scliool district,
balance sheet, and Mr. Carthew saidj
Comox Consolidated was in much the i
same position.
Dr. MacNaughton was then given I
the floor. He said lie was glad to come |
and meet so many in this hall. He told
how Mr. Davie of Cowichan and him- j
self had taken tills matter up right J
away as it was their constituencies
which were most concerned. He had
Interviewed the Minister of Education
several times, and admitted that Mr.
HlnchcliiTe required some money this
year over tlie usual revenue, nnd he
thought this wns an easy way to find
what he required. But Mr. Hilichclifte
had assured him that it was not districts like Comox nnd the Tsolum he
was after, it was those districts which
were paying from 1 mill up to 3 or 4
for education, and he had the assurance of Mr. HinchclilTc, although it
was not embodied In tlie bill, that any
rural district which was taxed over 8
or 9 mills would have government aid,
and he would do his best when he went
back to Victoria to place tlie position
of these two Consolidated Schools before the Minister.
The matter of broadening the incidence of taxation was discussed during
the evening, Capt. Bates contending
that the liquor profits should go towards education all over the province
and not be handed over, as lt is at
present, to the urban district where the
store happens to be located; also tlmt
$10 a year be assessed on all males and
females over 21 yoars of age who did
not otherwise pay school taxes.
Mr. Carthew gave an instance of a
family coming to Comox, the head of
the family worth $150,000, rented a
house at $10 per month, sent his five
children to Comox school and never
paid a cent ln taxation, which surprised the man himself.
Mr. Ault thought a graduated scale
of taxation would bc better than a fiat
Dr. MacNnughton stated that thc
Minister of Education was seeking a
solution of this taxation problem, and
his intention was certainly to brouden
the system of taxation.
Mr. Hughes than moved that n roso- j
lution bc herewith framed on the lines
spsclficd by Mr. Mantle, nnd Mr. Cnr-
thew, Mr. Staghall, Mr. Mantle and.
Capt. Bates were requested to draw up
this resolution.
An interval was given lo the meeting]
during the time tills resolution was he-;
ing prepared and thc doctor was sorely
buttonholed by the various interested
The resolution was then presented as
"At a meeting of the Comox, Royston
Minto and Tsolum school districts held
in the Grantham Hall on February 9th
the following resolution was unanimously passed:
"That in view of the fact, that it is
the intention of the government to
consider very carefully the whole system of taxation for sciiool purposes
during the coming year, the present
bill dealing with tho school act bo held
over until the above mentioned survey
has been made."
Mr. Hughes moved and Mr. Stalker
seconded, that Dr. MacNaughton, M.L.
A., present this resolution along with
the signed petition to the proper authorities.
Dr. MacNaughton then stated he
would like some opinion on the number
of children which should comprise a
ot the
Canadian iMedical Association
questions coiicer.iiiiK health, addressed to the Canadian Medical
Association, 1S4 College Street,
Toronto, will bc answered by letter. Que:-tions as to diagnosis
and treatment will nut lie answered,
During nn epidemic, most people
are anxious to net-lire information aa
to how to protect themselves from the
particular disease which happens to
ho epidemic nt that time. There are
fewer epidemics now than there used
to bo because we have learned how
to prevent, certain diseases which, not
so many yenrs ago, were tlie cause or
epidemics. The early settlers in this
country had thc sad e.\perlence of
repeated epidemics of cholera antl
typhus fever, or. as the latter Was
called, ship's fever or Immigrant fevrr
Until recent years cause, epidemics of
typhoid fever were common. These
diseases rarely cause epidemics now
because our public health organization wnges a successful war against
them, providing the necessary ctiuin-
ment with which to light iB available.
We are not. successful in thc same
mensure   in   preventing  epidemics   of
such diseases us Influenza, because
l as yet the cause of this diaease Ib not
1 definitely known; nor have we a
i means of making ourselves immune or
; resistant to Influenza, in the way we
i can, through vaccination, rend our-
j selves immune to smallpox.
All tlie advice given in  regard to
; influenza may be put In a few words
, —live a hygenlc life, and If you bo-
come ill, go to bed and call In your
■ family doctor.    This advlco  Ib  per-
| fectly sound.   Our reason for refer-
, ring to it is that it Is important that
; it be understood, If we are to protect
| ourselves al the time of an influenza
| epidemic, we must believe it is practically impossible to alter our mode
of living suddenly.    We should,  for
exiimple, always wash our hands bo-
fore eating; we should never put anything into our mouths, excepting food
anil drink, or a toothbrush.   The reason for these habits is to keep disease
germs out of the mouth—the common
mode of entrance.   Such habits cannot
tic   suddenly   established   during   an
epidemic.   Practise (hem at all times
and you will do them unconsciously
and so protect yourself, during and
between epidemics, from some of the
dangera of infection.

Ottawa, Feb. 13.—Seldom indeed is
[here a lack of business iu the House
of Commons on private member's day.
This afternoon lliree debates developed. Thc lirst was on a resolution of
Dr. F. W. Gerhshaw, Liberal, Medicine
Hat, that,the national Thanksgiving
day be on Armistice Day, November 11
instead of on the Monday of the week
in which November 11th falls,
This resolution was lost on Mr.
Speaker calling for the yeas aad nay---.
Tho second was that a committee Investigate the granting of family allowances. This was carried without
Titles Still Debated
The third was on the titles question,
left over from the day before. The
.lchate on this was not completed
when the House rose at six o'clock.
ii will lie continued tomorrow. The
•('solution was moved by C. II. Cahnn,
Conservative, St. Lawrcnce-St. Georg.i
Thursdays are private members'
days as well as Wednesdays in tlie
early part of the session, so there will
probably be another field day for
members in this private legislation.
i    The next resolution on the Order
I paper is that of E. D. II. Bisett, Lib-
i eral, Springfield, that citizens of this
; country should be described as "Canadians" in legislation, instead of the
name of the race of their ancestors.
Thia was followed by one submitted
i by  Hon. Dr. Edwards,  Conservative,
Frontenac, respecting the natural resources of the Prairie Provinces.
A bunch of mules had just arrived

Ho gazed at the sky overhead and
felt tho awaylng motion of the stretcher. Feebly h,e lowered his shaky
hands ovor the side 40 find only
space. "My gosh!" he groaned, "I
ain't  even  hit the ground  yet."
^in-ss; the new act called for thirty-five
!o one room in.stead of forty, as heretofore.
Mrs. Carwithen, Tsolum Consolidated. Mr. Staghall, Comox Consolidated,
ind Mr. Stalker. Minto. agreed that
forty was not too great a number In a
Traded scliool, but was much too large
Ior an ungraded school.
