Search for Woman in the
London, April 22—Rt. Hon. Winston
Churchill, flrst lord of ihe admiralty,
it is learned today, has been the victim of a most daring au.l sensational
robbery, in which a youug woman is
suspected as the possible agent of
some foreign power.
By bho theft the lirst lord looses not
only $2500 in money, but highly important e-onii lential naval data such
us might easily be sought as of greatest value to any nation not too friend
ly with Oreat Britain.
The robbery has greatly aroused the
entire admiralty, anl Mr. Churchill
ha- pui Scotland yard detectives ou
the trail of an aristoralic band which
has just appealed in London.
Mr. Churchill met with his misfor -
lune Immediately after having won
Ute money on cards on the Riviera recently.
Shortly aft.r visiting Toulon,
Churchill's cruiser anchored oil Cannes
whore the first lord received an invita
tion to go ashore. He went at ouce to
a fashionable house, noted for high
play, where be found many well-known
so iety persons gathered around the
table, anil Mr. Churchill was soon engrossed in ,t game and after an hour's
play found himself richer by $2500. Ho
was warmly congratulated on hissud-
den streak of luck and especially by
a young woman, who, with iwo aris-
toiiatic-lo'kin ■; young men, hal Paid
close attention to Mr. Churchill and his
play. When 'hatting with this young
woman lhc fir-i lord stowed his wad
of money away in his right hip pocket
A few minutes later he took his leave.
11 was not until he was aboard his
cruiser and started to tell about his
luck that he found the wad was missing. This was' bad enough, bui with
the money had disappeared the pocket
liook containing notes on British naval
matters which would be extremely
valuable to foreign powers.
It is rumored the woman in ilu case
is a member of an international band
actively engaged in espionage. Tho
political section of Scotlaid Vard is
making special inquiries.
There is considerable inquiry as to
the new gun license regulations, and
the following is printed for the inform
ation of inquirers:
An ordinary licenso costs $2..">0. This
allow:? the holder to bunt birds and
deer, bul not big game. The general
liccns.' i< worth $5.00 according to the
government tarifl and allows the holder to hunt anything that walks, creeps
or Hies and is not protected by game
regulations or some other shield. For
siO, a man can trap also. A guide
must pay 85 for a lkense, and It a^
lows him load as a guide only, and
do2B not permit the shooting or trapping of game. Fanners get an ordinary license, good on their own land,
free. Prospectors get an ordinary lie-
ease with their free miners' certificate,
if Ihey want it. Indians do not require a license, neither do members of
the Militia while on duty. Nothing i.-»
said aVout members of Civilian Rifle
associations going and coming irom
practice at ranges.
Kvery li.-ens' expires on March 31s'.
in each year. It is granted at the above rates to residents only. Kids under 16 years of age cannot gel lieen-es
except when their parents request them
and guarantee to keep the youngster
with them while he is packing the gun
.Automatic -hot guns, pump guns and
any gun- ilat contain more than one
shell in the magazine are taboed, and
must nol bs used at any time.
Dogs must not be allowed to run
deer, and no birds may be -hot be -
tween  April lath and August 1st.
This is not tb ■ act that refers to the
carrying of concealed weapons. If a
man wants to pack a pistol or revolver, he must show his reason to th"
authorities and get a permit, otherwise he i-; guilty of a misdemeanor and
the penalties are severe. In the easo
of foreigner- deportment may be invoked. The act in question bas reference to the carrying of ^porting weapons, and i- de-signed for the protection
of wild life and the regulation of shoot
ing. The possession of a gun license
of any kind do^s not give a man permission lo cany a e-onceab»d weapon of
any  kind.

South Vancouver, April 20—A recent amendment to ihe Public Echools
act is likely to cause the South Vancouver municipal council a good deal
of trouble, if the board of school trustees persists in claiming what its
members allege is their legal right.
Chairman Whelpton, in an interview
with Tho Provin :e representative to -
day, stated thai aceording to an amendment to the Public Schools Act.
1 a-sed this year, estimates for Special
or extraordinary expenditure of the
board of school trusties must be submitted to th1 municipal council for
approval. If tho coun il disapproves
ofthe whole or any part of the estimate* due notice must he given to th;
sehool hoard an 1 a bylaw mu-t then
be  submitted  to  the  ratepayers.
"Our contentions are," said Chairman Wholpton, "flrrt that the council
approved of the school estimates as
fnally submitted; second, that ihe
consent of the ratepayers by n bylaw
was therefore unnece-sary. and third,
that the council is liable for the expenditure included in the estimates
submitted by the school board and
approved of by the council."
The matter will be raised at tbe
next meeting of the school boar.1,
when the trustees will probably decide what action they will take.

Citizens of British Columbia, are
well aware of lhe fact lhat for years
pasl up to .i recent date, the affairs of
the Dominion Government i'ublic
Works Department in ibis province,
were regarded as of s'o little import -
1 - ance, that practically no attention
was ever given towards keeping this
branch up io the proper standard, and
tbat Utile or no improvements were
effected during a long series of years
.n the organization of the same, al-
though the developments ofthe Pacilic Coa-i Province were loudly demanding that an improved system oi
ban.ling the department here, be introduced. Following the return to
power of the present administration
the members for British Columbia, including our own energetic representative Mr. R.F. Green, brought the statu
ii aftairs io thc attention of the responsible minister, and during the
past few months, sweeping reforms
lave been inaugurated throughout thej
Department  all over the province.
The whole of b' Pacitic Coast province was divided into engineering district-, and competent staffs wero appointed to systematise the work and
lay plans for cur., ing tame on along
proper pei man. nt lines, ln Revelstoke the new district is supervised
by Mr. J.p. Ford.', district engineer,
with Vi. Bowden as his senior assistant, R. Kirkpa'.ri'k as junior a-sist -
ant, and Miss Blanche McCarty as1
stenographer completing ihe, stall who
are installed in commodious offices in
ihe Bank of Commerce Bloek.
.since ihese changes were nia le early
in tii -pi in,-, work has been rushed to
co.,i,.I .lion on much needed .vharves
at Comaplix, Revelstoke, Deer Park,
li. swell, ShUtty Ben-h, Mirror Lake,
whilst exten-ions have been made to
wharves at Burton, Edgewood and
other lake points. Mans are com -
pleted for wharves at Kaslo and Willow Point, and < ontracts will shortly
be 1 i  for the construction of same.
Plans are in course ,,i preparation
lor wharves at Beaton. Fast Arrow
Fark, Needles, Reneia, Grey Creek,
Kooi-nay Bay, Ainsworth and various
other .enters of traffic, and work, will
co nmence so soon as water falls suf-
tieiently  to render operations feasible.
Muih ha>' already been done in the
direction of river improvements. Work
Las begun on the Upper Columbia, be-
;ween  Golden and     Windermere,      on
whicb put'iio.i of tlu river the snag
boal .Mus.iai, is at wo.k Improving
lho channel, removing -nags, auu nl-
luidiii.; toother matters wiib a viuw
to the improvement of navigation gen
eially. Among ibe additional duties
to be carried out Irom this boat during ihe coming season, will be the
construction of a new wharfs at lnver-
liiere, and additions io the wharves
at Alhelinere und Wilmer. A very important pi.ee of work now under aut-
uc way, is the removal trom Lho Col-
umbia river of a lur^e number ol snags
along the stretches between Revelsloke,
an.t Arrowhead. These snag--' have existed a3 a menace lor years, and the
clearing of ihe channel will indeed be
a. boon to steamers operating abug
tin- porlion oi tho great Columbia.
'lhe task of dredging oiu the channel in the Columbia river narrows,
betwetn the upper and thelower Ar -
lowlakes, has been prosecuted UU win-
ter, with very satisfactory results. A
few mote seasons of similar activity
to ihat during ihe past mouths, will
lender ihe narrows ?afe and easy lor
navigation by steamers at all times
during the year.
The provision of a mure powerful,
modern and suitable dredging eraft is
mder consideration, in order that operations may be facilitated and tbo
work completed iu a reasonable timo,
enabling full advantage to be taken of
the -oeithe.n steamship route viaRev-
e I stoke.
It is ofun complained by tho aver-
ago elector, ihat in spite of tho many
election orations, little or no improvement is eitected by changes of administration on. e the victors succeed bhe
t.usied, in the teals oi power. The
wonderful improvements in tho re -
spects outlined above, effected during
the past ii„hteen months, are however, proof thai a gmuine attempt is
bein; made at Ottawa, to make tbi
change felt in increased efficiency and
a well substantiated de-'ire to live up
io election pledges, and cater to the
incie a-ing needs of ibe settlers thru-'
out the Interior of B.C. generally and
the constituency of Kootenay in particular. The record of achievement
outlined in this article, i- an earnest
effort of the endeavors made by our
member to get results of the mot do-
tn.te and beneficial nature on behalf
of his constituents, and is wo understand only the lore runner of further
developments making for tho progress
and prosperity of North Kootenay.
Ottawa, April 'JI—Tho House spent
the day discussing Government meaa ■
Ures, the closure debate being put over until Monday. The nm t Important
mat ter taken up Was Hon. Martin
Burrell's bill to provide tot an expenditure of $10,UU0,UOii on agriculture in
the noxl decade.
In moving the second reading of the
bill, Hon. Mat't.u Burrell quoted a
number of extracts from   newspapers
in various parts ni Canada to -how
that lhc principle oi the measure bad
been generally approved, irre pe' live
of politics. He also read a number of
letters from leading agricultural auth
orities endorsing his proposals. Mr.
Burrell suid thai Ihe present bill was
slightly different in principle'from thai
brought down a year ago. At thai
time the appropriation could be used
•for every variety of agricultural endeavor. By ibis bill it was restricted
io agricultural education, and this
plan bad been generally endorsed by
authorities from every province. The
money is to be divided among the pro
vin 'es.
Tbe opposition members supported
the principle ofthe bill, but objected
to some of its details.

Tho rush io tho cities, the deilin'e of

Now that winter is over, ihe public

Save One Ton of Coal
in Every Six
The Economizer will  do  it.
While the cost cf living has undoubtedly been
growing greater, at the same time it is true
there are sonie inventions that will offset this
increased cost of living, and the careful house-
wife takes advantage of these inventions.
On every Gurney-Oxford range there is an
Economizer which controls not only the drafts
but also the entire combustion or burning cf
fuel to create   heat.
This Economizer will save 1 ton of coal in
every6thr.t you would uae with the ordinary range.
The Economizer is a simple device, absolute
in its control. Ly merely moving the lever you
can obtain any degree of even heat in the oven.
This insures the satisfaction cf always having
light,  delicately  crusted bread and biscuits.
Thc kitchen lire ceases to be a worry if the
Economizer is on your stove.
Thc   Gurney - Oxford is   the   final  result   of
experimental    thought. Science   has   given   it
a  Divided Flue, a   new Special  Grate,   and   a
i-iroilcr attachment.
This Gurney - Oxford range is primarily a
a saver of money, time, and energy.

Vi toria, April 21—When spoken to
last evening as to the significance oi
A;..- M.ieilu elections, Dritish Oolutu-
1,-ia'a Prime Minister, Sir Hu-hard Mu.
l,i i le expreseied himself as much grati-
lie.l with ill,- outcome and remarked
lhat lu' considered the results very
striking evidence of the substantial
growth of I'on-'eM-vutivo sentiment, in
the  neighbor provinoe.
"In the last House," said he, "Mr.
SHion had an overwhelming majority,
und this fn t coupled With ihe very
xtensive railway ptogram which th'j
govei uni, ni had embarked upon seems
ii bavo been looked upon as astrong
assurance that the present election
would produce a result almost similar
ie, ih it which eamo from the last oon-
test. It is true that Mr. ltiitlu-rtord's
withdrawal irom tho premiership an,l
the' Issues whieh led up lo this step
nay have tor a time somewhat compli
cated the party organization, but any
circumstance of this EOrt, has long
since been overcome by the Inclusion
in the Cabinet of Mr. Cross, who was
Attorney-General for the province under ihe Rutherford regime.
"Mr. Michener, tbe Conservative
leader, is a very energetic and earnest
public man, an.l while in a measure he
bas been rather new to the work devolving upon a leader, it must be con-
eid -tl that the outcome of the campaign reflects splendidly upon unu and
his colleagues. It seems to me that
the gratifying advance of Conservatism in * I'.mi ta mav le looied upon
as an assurance thai bo -mm as another i' e tion comes round a change of
.nei, ernmi in  will  lake place.
"There has been a great deal said in
the | ress in re.-ard to the redislribu-
imi of seats lately provided for by the
Legislature of Bdmonton an.l the
i barge is ma le thai ihis was a move
cntbe pan ofthe administration of a
jerrymandering nature. I am not in a
pos ii ,i to express myself ou thi.
point, but I ifel quite safe in saying
that from a neighbor's knowledge of
the Albei an govei n i em. m, advant -
age \ee.uld be overlooked that a
change in tin' distribution of -Vats
mi tht make   possible.
"Briti h Columbia has nothing' but
g I wi i. ■ for the progress anl prosperity ni Alberta, and now ihat Mr.
Sift on, has i... n .ji lorsi I i.y the u opie
of hal se lion, we hope an 1 trust
that his work a- a leader will be of
inum asurable ! en >flt to the province,
tl an. I think be said wiih every con-
ftdence thai Mr. Sifton will always
find in Mr. Michener and his eolleag-
n whos ambition will always
first and
