NEW MM iCI
Supervising Inspector to be
Appointed
Tho muniolpal act, based upon tho
Ending! of the royal commission on
municipal government, which made
its report to the last session of tho
legislature, was introduced by Hon. I
M.J. Bowser.
it ungulates a new departure     in
municipal procedure in llritish Colum
Ida, providing for supervision of all
municipal matters by an inspector ap
pointed by a municipal department of
the government. This Inspector of
municipalities, whoso otllce will be
attached to the attorney-general's do-
partment, Will have power to hold a
public Inquiry into any of thc business of a municipality and his liml -
lings, upon the approval of tho llou -
/tenant, governor in coiincilr shall be
n hiding on the officials Ol such
(municipality.
Under the proposed bill any municipal.ty may submit money by-laws
to the inspector for approval and bo-
fore issuing debentures must submit
liotb the balance and debentures to
him for approval. His certitlcate of
approval shall be considered conclusive evidence of the validity of the
bylaw or debenture! in all courts of
the province.
Another of the duties of the Inspector of municipalities! Will be the standardization of a system of municipal
bookk<seping, especially with regard
to lasuing debentures, stock and
treasury certificates. The result of
this proposal will he that all ac -
counts of municipalities will be intelligible' te. ih" citizens who take an
Interest   In their local municipal nf -
fairs. The Inspector is also empowered to inquire into thc management of
■inking funds and his duties shall extend tothe hooks and account! of
the board of school trustees.
"We (eel that in bringing down
these Clauses we shall be doing something towards preventing municipalities from indulging in what may be
-fcrmeel municipal luxury," said Mr.
Bowser.
Another Important feature of thc
act is the voluntary establishment of
a board of control in titles having i
population .if l."i,00'i or more on the
vote of three-fourths of the members
of the council. The establishment of
this board eif control, which is option
nl will vest the affairs of government
in a board composed of the mayor or
reeve of a municipality an 1 two comp
trollers, who shall be nominated and
elected from the city it large.
Under this plan the public school
board, the commissioner! of police,
and other governing beards will report to thc hoard of control and sub
mit their yearly estimates to them.
An important fenture of the act is
the appointment of police magistrates by the lieutenant-governor in conn
cil, who shall continue such otlice dur
ing his pleasure and he shall have
thc power of cancelling. This power
has always existed in legard to city
municipalities, but is now extended
to district municipalities, the licut-
ennnt-governor in council having the
exclusive power of appointment in thu
future.
District municipalities Bball have a
board of commissioners consisting of
the mayor and two appointees of thc
lieutennnt-governor in council similar
to the constitution of thcBe hoards
in the cities. Thc lieutenant-governor in council may direct the superintendent of police to take charge of
the police of any municipality, iu
which case the municipal police shall
act under the direction of the provin
cial superintendent of police. Tho
attorney-general referred to distances
which bad occurred in British Colum
Via in recent years where the lack of
this power has led to considerable con
fusion. The hoard of license commissioners in district municipalities will
also be constituted the same as lu
cities.
Dealing with the question of muni
clpal control of public utilities,
no municipality Bhall l.e allowed to
undertake work of this kind without
the approval of the lleutl nnnt-gov -
eraor In council. Provision is made
for the appointment by the lieutenant
governor in council of an auditor for
*very municipality In which an officer
has not heen appointed by the ofti -
dais of thnt municipality.
The power of referendum which was
granted to municipalities under the
old act and which it Is felt has been
much abused during the last few years
nsill he curtailed under the provisions

colleague in this new position, Mr.
Ed. Trimble, enjoys a high reputation as a strong man of fearless opinions and has demonstrated his ability in public capacities in the past.
Of the new licensing commissioners ,
Aid. Bourne is not apt to jump to
conclusions without thoroughly ex-

TO RESERVE
RADIUM
DEPOSITS
That radijm may eventually play
some part in the mineral production
of Hritish Columbia is evidenced by
thc announcement made by the Prem
ier thut steps will he taken to reserve all deposits of this ultra-precious
element for the government.
"The matter has been under consid
crution for some time," snid Sir
Richard McBride, "and it is possible
that legislation may be introduced
during the present session to reserve
all radio-active ores for the exclusive
use of thc people of the province. Even if legislation is not brought in at
tlie present session the matter will be
thoroughly discussed with a view to
takiug active steps in the near future
The action taken by tbe govern -
ment in the matter will be in line
with the practice of several European
governments who have refused to allow exportation of this metal. Radium today is by far tbe most valu -
uble substance known to thc scientific world in point of cost, being valued at approximately 32,600,000 an
cunce, und in order to extruct even a
milligramme of the metal many tons
of ore have to be treated. Thc mnin
sources of supply arc found in Corn
wall, England, and In Hungary, although small quantities of thc metal have been extracted from ores in
Denver.
It ia said that one of the factors
that has induced thc government to
take immediate action in the matter
is thc reported discovery of traces of
helium and uranium, with which rad
ium is chemically allied in certain
ores, brought down from thc Peace
River country.

Phonograph
If you do not hear an Edison you do not hear a phonograph. There is only one Edison and only one Phonograph
bearing his name. The Edison Phonograph is Mt. Edison's
own personal achievement. He invented it and he perfected it. He is responsible for its clear, lifelike musical
Records—the Blue Amberols, unbreakable, playing four
minutes and lasting a lifetime. He has produced the
indestructible diamond reproducing point, that never needs
changing. He has recently
i>erfected this new cabinet
model—a thing of beauty
in itself and a marvel of
musical perfection.

TYPEWRITTEN    CIRCULARS
Some Possibles
Who will be appointed high commissioner for Canada in Loudon 1b a
question that is now uppermost in
Official and political circles. Hy the
death of Lord Stnithcona, Canada
Ends itself in a position similar
to the United States after the death
of WhitelaW' Reid. Both wore lm
mensely wealthy, and their milariivs
were only a nominal part of their expenditures. To nti'p Into their empty shoes meant a new departure or
the expenditure Ol private means,
which very tew of those capable oi
doiiiK Kooil  work  could  uflord.
In    both   Canada    and   the     United
i-tates there are a groat many ol
those competent to speak upon the
subject who are of tho opinion that
association with the nobles, while it
may be exceedingly attractive an an
advertisement, does not necessarily
bring any business to this side ol
the water. What Is really wanted is
that the London representative ol
i.ny countrj should be conversant
with the pulilic needs of those he represents, and Industrious and indefnt
Igable in pressing them home at
Leadquarters, Titles in the British
government are fewer than in some
of the colonies, and a high commissioner Ol' resident minister ilocs not
tequire a handle to his name in approaching Mr. Asiiuith, Mr. Lloyd
George or Mr, Churchill.
The  salary   and  allowances  for    the
high commissioner ship are less to -
day than when Sir Charles Tapper
t Ih'd the position about 80 years ago
The silary was then $1(1,00(1, wit.il $2-
lioii added for expenses. Hut Sir
Charles had with that a London residence maintained hy the government,
Ihis  has  heen   done away   with,     and
.•ll that Strathcona accepted was the
noney grant of $l2,ni)ti a year. Tho
salary will no doniit lie Increased and
the old arrangement for s London residence to the commissioner will In
all likelihood be restored,
Robert   Rogers, minister ol public '■
works, has been mentioned for the po
sltion.   He  is well qualified,  but his \
presence  in  I lie Canadian government
where be   is   politically   strong, is ne-1
icssaiv to make ins going  to    London unthinkable.   In   iddition to his'
other qualities, he is a man of means
Some say that Mr. Foster, the minister of trade ami commerce, might
take the office,  but this is doubtful,
Mr,   Foster   has no  wealth,   as  far    as
worldlj goods go, but In regard to i
capacity for public business, orator
leal gifts i lucational qualifications, he has few if any peers in Canada. He is a glutton for work and
lequtres no fuss or frills outside his
own talents successfully to till the po
Bitlon. When travelling on public
Ineas as minister ol the crown ho
neither   secretary   nor   man   servant  to accompany him.
There are several wealthy men out-
the cabinet   who would  like   the
position.     Most   prominent   among j
those mentioned is Sir Hugh Grah-
im,   proprietor  ol the   Montreal Star,
t«  reported at  the present time
well  tnu'li in control  of  ' all j
Ihe  English   papers,  ami  some  of the!
French,  in  Montreal.   Had    the   vac-I
•ini,I  when Sir Wilfrid Laur-
i is  premier the  position    would
to  Sir  Frederic  Borden.

Home Interesting Information anent
the resources of 13.0. wus furnished
in an address delivered liy A.H. Good
eve, a member of the Dominion Rail
wuy Commission. The mountains to
w htch objection was made years ago
i ad since proved to be the literal cof
fern of British Columbia's latent we-
i-ltli, as they had yielded gold, copper and coal in immeasurable quantities,
The coal tieidH of the province were
the largest in the Dominion, British
Columbia had the largest area ol
compact merchantable tumber on
the continent; ls2 millions of acres
I cine,; the Bgures compiled by government authorities last year. Thirty-
six millions of acres of this vast
urea ure directly merchantable and
with an average of Id,OOO feet to the
acre, a total of 360 billions of feet ol
timber were available In the province
The fishing industry was one of the
thief Industries of the provinr       us
its values last  year were over   I I millions  of  dollars which   was  four  mil
lions greater than that Of Nova Bco
till.
The fur Industry was being cultlvat
ed and today it earned a sum of
ilium, each year that was astonish
lllg tee those who were not familiar
with the country. Strict, name laws
were enforced and Large tracts of
lands Were set  apart for the preserva
tion of the fur bearing denizens that
innablted the country. The agriCUl -
tural branch of the province was referred to and it was stated that, despite the fact that British Columbia
had been called a "sea of mountains"
it had raised ten times more products
than had Japan, which had forty-five
millions of souls to feed. Fruit, farm
ing was nourishing in the province
end it was not an uncommon tiling
for such soil to sell [or $500 an acre.
Ten years ago only 7000 acres were
under cultivation, but today over 100
OHO acres were being worked, with
profit to all concerned. The good
roads, trails and bridges of the province   were  appraised at   $200,000,000 .
It  had a   budget  of $l(i,l ,1100,     witb
a surplus of S8,O0O,0O0 drawing in -
terest in the bank. Its area was
£95 millions of square miles, and
it ran through twelve degrees of latitude, its temperature was ten degrees warmer than the same parallel
en the  Atlantic coast.

at a much Icbs cost. than if every -
thing is purchased from the grocer.
Her education rather leads her to believe it is somewhat "infra dig" to
have a knowledge of these things and
since she is likely as not to marry a
millionaire, she will not need to
learn, well to a girl with ideas of
this sort let me suy, there may not
be enough millionaires to go round .
and the girls who marry them very
often live in houses, not homes.
It seems to mc thut good plain
cooking, the sort that builds bone
and muscle and tends to health in
the family is rapidly becoming a
lost art and in its steud is creeping
in something which bus 11 tendency to
appeal to the eye rather tbun the
palate. Our girls are sent oti to
school and among other things perhaps take a course in domestic si li 11
ce (now this of course covers great
deal of housework besides cooking)
but let us speak of the cooking, our
girls take this course and possibly
acquire a very superficial knowledge
of what really good food means they
are taught to prepnre certain foods
and lay a table which to a hungry
man looks more like a landscape gar
den than something to eat and unless
he happens to haven pretty good
knowledge of the French landscape,
nnd able to trace an urticle hy itu
French name, he certainly never
would be uble to recognize even'an or
dinary fresh egg by Its apperance on
thc table.
I was reading the other day ubout
a young lady home from lollegc, she
had taken a course in Domestic sci •
ence. (In her way home Bhc visited a
lady who entertained in her bonier.
She was relating to h.'r mother tbe
details of Ihe party and explained
to ber mother how she hud helped her
hostess prepare the refrwhments, Bbe
salad she went on to explain it had
twenty-eight different ingredients in
it and made everybody ill, but it
was perfectly delicious,     Now  I    do
' -a 'liink that suit nf cooking is con
f.UClVe  to  health   in   the family,   I   do
not  believe the everyday man would
1 •   amicable aftei n diet like that.
Now,   do  not   mistake      me, I  think
• Ic science, tbe scientific value
of foods, etc., a most excellent thing.
I think   ever]   young   girl above      ull
I should  be taught bouaekeep -
In   .  inv onl]   pb-a Is for more simplir
iti  in   everything.    Now 1   have     only
touched mi 8   few  things In  a  general
way and as   tbey   appeal   tome     from
a   mothers   standpoint.    I   am   proud
of   Rovelatoke'a schools,  they    stand
second to  none  in  the  province    and
there is   no   reason   why  they     should
■ in   citizens have  it. In  their    power
to set tin- standard of education for
heir children    and I as a ratepayer
say   let us  bnve  tbe  belt  we ran  aft
ord,   The newspapers at present   arc
making B  great  cry  about loo    much
feminism In the schools, they erf afraid that boys taught by a lndy will
1 1 too feminine. 1 have never seen
a fenr expressed thnt our girls may
became masculine in mnnner when
taught by B man. Control of a room
and strength of character does not
always belong to the individual who
nay be  nble  to  thrush everybody    in
the room. That teacher who con -
tools himself is the one who best
controls a room and if a female teacher has us much ability as a man,
she has a right to an equal ChaiMW
1 very time..
Now in conclusion, we have ns a
1 ule heen uble to elect a reasonably
capable school board, witb this 1
l.uvc no complaint whatever, things
bave been going nicely, but considci-
ing that we have us ninny girls attending our schools us boys, nnd con
sideling that we have more fcnial*
than male teachers ou the school
staff, has it ever occurred to the electors that a woman might be u veryf
useful addition to tbe school board.
There are times and conditions when
1 think a woman should be consulted
There are other things besides tho
financial side of affairs and although
a woman is not supposed to know
much about finances, my own opio-
1011 of the matter is a woman knows
what can be bought for a dollar about as well as a man. The ordinary
1 veryday mother of a family is cx-
pected to buy for ten dollars, what
a man could not possibly procure for
$20, so I think her training there even might he a most material help.
1 think I have been able to point
out very clenrly tbe close relation •
ship between thc school and the
home nnd because of this, 1 think it
is only reasonable to adovate the appointment of one woman to the board
of trustees. It has been found vc.ry
satisfactory in other places, and
after a trial suy for one year it win*
not a success the experiment need
i-ot be repeated.
Discussing women on tbe school
1 Hard. I read an article the other day
where a man, n trustee himself, objected to a woman on thc bourd,—
why. man alive, be said, it would n^
ver do, a woman would tell nil she
knew about everything. Well, to tbe
ratepayer! who are always clamoring
for information re expenditures, etc.,
end supposing what this man suid is
true, then by ull means let US have
B   w.una 11  on  the school hoard!

B.C. AND CONTROL
OF TBE
ll is understood that the province
of llritish Columbia is negotiating
for control of the Yukon territory.
The annexation of the Yukon to the
province on tho Pacific coast has been
long talked of, and it would seem
that it is to be realised in tho near
future. It is now being urged in jus-
tiflcation of im arrangement with the
Chicago, Milwaukee He Haint Paul
Railway, by which tbe powerful inter
tuts behind that enterprise may gain
all rail access to Alaska. The effect
of this arrangement would bo to
make the Yukon, na well as AliiBkti ,
Immediately tributary to Seattle and
( bicago, but that would he regarded
us a secondary consideration along -
s-iile the prospect of the development
thai  would follow in its train.
There is little doubt that the feder-
al government would raise no serious
obstacles to the absorption ol    the
^i nkon by British Columbia,    The ad
ministration of the vast northern ter
titory is conducted at a loss in so tar
as tin- balance    sheet   is concerned.
'I he revenue is Insignificant in   comparison   With   the  outlay.   One      has
i lily   to   peruse   Ihe  public  uccounts of
the Dominion to realize how true this
is.   if the federal government   could
transfer  this   burden'to  British  Col-
rmbiu, even though it bad to pay the
province a   substantial  cash  subsidy
to  supplement   the bargain,  it would
beave a long sigh of relief.

that the interior cut contains >m
clear lumber It is said that only ab-
rut eight per cent of the lumber in
the upper country is rlenr with between thirty per cent ,nd forty per
cent clear in the coast cuts. Having
more ground to cover in cutting and
therefore additional expense with a
rmaller total return because of a low

men contend that they ought to enjoy a lighter stumpage charge.
The answer of the couBt Interests is
that the freight rate on interior lum- :
ber la Vi lies per thousand feet than
that on the coast article on account
of the shorter distance to the prairie
■market*.

WE HAVE FAITH III
THIS STOMACH REMEDY
A woman customer said to us the
other day, "Say, you ought to toll
everyone In town about Kexall liys
popsia Tablets. 1 would myself if i
could." That set us to thinking. So
many people have used them and
: avo so enthusiastically sounded
their praises both to us and their
[riorfds, that we had an idea you nil
knew about them. Hut, In the chance
ihat some of you who sutler from Indigestion, heartburn, dyspepsia, or
some other Btomach complaint, don't
know      about    them    WC     are   Writing
ihis.
They contain Bismuth and Pepsin,
two of the greatest digestive aids
known to medical science. They soothe and comfort the stomach, pro
mote the Becretion ol gastric juice,
help to qulcklj ilii-cst the food and
i..avert it into rich red blood, and
improve the action of the bowels, We
believe them to be the best remedy
made (or Indigestion and dyspepsia.
We certainly wouldn't offer them to
you entirely al our risk unless we
ire they would do ie u a lot of
good, If Rexall Dyspi psia
