Bert Whitehouse Loses His Life
in Four-mile Lake While out
Duck Hunting—Plucky Attempt at Rescue.
One of the most distressing accidents that has ever occurred in tbis
vicinity took place on Sunday morning, resulting in the loss ol one life
and tbe narrow escape of another.
It appears that Bert Whitehouse
and Sam Carmichael bad left the city
early on Sunday morning on a duck
shooting expedition down the south
track. Reaching four-mile camp tbe
two struck into the bush for Four-
mile lake which is about a mile Irom
the C.P.K. track. On reaching the
lake they saw some ducks on the water
aud shot at them, wounding one.
Seeing a boat on tbe bank, they
launched it and got in paddling out
through the ice towards tbe wounded
bird, which they then finally dispatched. Tbe boys now paddled on
towards tbe opposite bank of the
slough, through the ice which was
about hall an inch thick. By this
time the boat was leaking badly and
filling with water rapidly, and White-
bouse stepping to one side caused it to
lurch violently and take in water.
Getting alarmed, and probably thinking tbat she was sinking, Whitehouse
jumped out into deep water, although
he was unable to swim. Carmichael,
seeing his friend's danger, jumped out
too and got hold ol him and tried to
swim to the shore with bis burden but
wae unable to get through the ice.
Carmichael then tried to pull White-
house back to the boat and succeeded
in dragging bim near, although the
boat, water-lodged, was drifting away
again to the middle of the slough.
Alter a manful effort Carmichael got
up to the boat and in order to secure
it was forced to let go his hold of bis
fiiend who by this time was numbed
witb cold and well nigh exhausted. As
soon as the supporting hand of the
swimmer let go, Whitehouse sank but
Carmichael quickly grabbed on to the
s-trapB of his game bag in order to pull
him above the surface again. Unfortunately the bag came away and tbe
body sank to tbe bottom. Carmichael
who was pretty well done up with
cold and with bis plucky efforts to
save bis friend, bad just enough
strength left to get ashore and hasten
to the nearest camp to break tbe news,
leaving an Italian who came up just
as tbe accident bad happened, and
who could not swim and so could not
render aid, to point out to the men
where the body lay under water.
Carmichael who stood by at tbe
camp, after getting his clothes dried,
to see if the Coroner would bold an
inquest, went home to regain warmth
aud circulation to his chilled limbs.
The body was then conveyed to tbe
undertaking parlors of K. Howson A
Tbe deceased was only 1G years of
age and popular among bis friends in
the city, being employed, as was Car
micbiiel, at the mill of the Bowman
Lumber Co. We learn that death
was probably caused nut so much by
actual drowning an by the sudden
shock tu the heart from the effects uf
icy cold water.
Carmichael, who if of considerably
smaller stature than bis fiiend,yet tbe
same age, deserves great credit for the
plucky manner In which he attempted
to savo his friend's life in spite of tbe
tremendous odds against bim.
Mrs. Whitehouse has been prostrated at tbe loss ol her son and the
ar.ii.. ii', baa cuusod widespread sympathy for tue mother and relatives.
The deceased is half brother to Mrs.
O. 0, 1'. I'.ivis aud Mrs. 0. I). Hume.
The funeral took place yesterday
afternoon Irom tbe lam ily residence,
the jtev. C. A. l'rocunier olliciuting at
the service. The remains were followed to tbe cemetery by a large number
ol friends ul the deceased's family. The
Mail-Hkkai.ii joins with the many
friends in expressions of sympathy
Ior the bereaved mother aud relatives.
Three   Lives   Lost  in   Train
Wreck Caused by Washout
The heavy .thaw of the lust few days
was the cause of a serious accident
early on Tuesday morning, near
Lytton, resulting in the loss of three
lives. It seems that a large section of
the C. P. R. track overlooking the
Fraser rivor had beeu washed out, the
slides of is iter and mud fiom tbe bills
above belli : responsible for the damage. A west bound freight ran into
tbe debris before the engineer was
aware of the danger, the locomotive
and several hox cars being precipitated
into the swirling current below.
Engineer G. Brown was pinned
down beneath his engine and met
death instantaneously, while Fireman
Ryder was caught among the debris
and scalded to death by escaping
steam, after lingering in untold agony.
The head brakeman, Ole Anderson,
suffered severe injuries to which he
succumbed late last night at Kamloops.
The body of the unfortunate engineer
was recovered yesterday and taken
into Kamloops.

Calmed by tbe assurance tbat Assistant District Attorney Francis J.
Heney, who was shot yesterday in
Judge Lawlor's courtroom while in the
performance of bis duty, is to recover
from bis wound, unless some untor-
seen condition develops, public opinion was turned today toward the formulation of concrete expression of a
determination to continue with the
trial of those indicted on charges of
municipal corruption, in the prosecution oi which Mr: Heney has been
the dominant character.
Several leading attorneys ol the city
bave volunteered to take up Mr.
Heney's work as a matter ol publio
duty and carry it to a conclusion.

mechanics' strike, tbe union has
demanded the resignation ol Bell-
Hardy and J, H. McVety, the two

stated that it had not and said:

Revelstoke, Nov. 0, 11I0S.
GENTLEMEN :—In consenting to deliver a chairman's address at this

Before proceeding  to  give  you my
report as obairman of your committee
which was authorised to apprbaoh the
Government with all passed resolutions, I would beg leave  tu  call your
attention to the gnat number of rest
humus that have been passu! fn the
(our previous meetings of this Association; many of ihem very Important
to the gentlemen who advocated then

yuu may have noticed by our report,
thit il is only   the   large   issues, thul
when placed belore the Government,
hive iiceivcd proper consideration.
Ibesc local issues mid resolutions
hnve, nevertheless, bud tlieir place in
our meetings, and I think it is well to
discuss that pait ol our educations!
i vr'i'in when wc meet in convention
I would strongly urge upon you the
necessity if psssiug a few resolutions
as possible, anil instead ol wasting uur
lime and energy iu this way, devote it
to the method ol oureduoational system as a whole.
To illustrate thi' value one locality
mny receive Irum another, and the
energy shown by one locality in particular, I would refer lo the excellent
photograph that the llevelstnke School
Hoard piesenled to us in New Westminster, in Ootober. M'07.
The result to New Westminster
alone has been tho beautilying nnd
arranging   of     the     Central   School
grounds, an enterprise that we ap-
proiiobid with (ear and trembling because o[ the expense, which   has  lieen
Iii the neighborhood ol |l,fioo, but i
can assure you that, during the tune
the work was under construction, we
received nothing but encouragement
fu in every citizen who spuko to us
upon the subject during thn time the
work was being done.
I believe it is the duty of every
school hoard to make the conditions
surrounding their schools as lieaiitiful
as possible, as it is in itself an education to our young.

Now that the Dominion elections
are over the citizens who are interested in civic affairs are beginning
to discuss mutters pertaining to lhe
municipal elections which will be
held next January. In some sections of the city active canvassing
for municipal candidates is said to
have been quietly going on for
some time though the partis concerned in this work when approached on the subject, insisted that it is
altogether too early to talk definitely on the matter of their candidacy.
A round oi informal interviews
makr- it reasonably certain that
there wiil be more candidates fur
mayor next January than 1ms been
the case in a number of years, and
tiiere will be no lack of candidates
for alJermanie honors. It is probable, however, tiiat by the time
nomination day comes round a
number of would-be aspirants to
the "seatsof the mighty," will drop
out of the running from one or more
causes, 'I'he past year has seen a

Apropos of the sad drowning
accident on .Sunday morning last
there comes the realization that
lhe art of swimming has been sadly
neglected in the everyday courses
of instruction of our children.
When cities and homes are situated
near rivers, lakes or even streams
there is always the latent danger
of drowning accidents to be considered. The knowledge of swimming is as essential to every man,
woman or child as any other art
that they may acquire. Rarely
does the importance of this accomplishment occur to individuals until sonic calamity has happennd
ami il is n common phase of everyday life n community learns
their lessons :it the expense of one
or two- It is almost incredible (lie
number of persons who arc employed on our inland waters who
cannot swim, and we would suggest that this be made a strong
point where men are engaged for
river or lake service, it is useless
for us to shut our eyes to the urgency of the case and we must be fully
alive to a situation that calls for
action being taken. How many of
our boys and girls perhaps, let alone
the men and women who make a
pastime out of boating or of
fishing near our rivers and lakes,
and who could, if emergency called
save their own lives and the lives
of others when jeopardized. We
venture to state but a few only.
Swimming should be taught to
every boy and girl m the community where possible, ami classes
could very well be organized at our
own y.M.C.A. where tlie art could
be laugin. This is a i-uestion not
to be lightly considered anil "lie
which should appeal to every parent and to our community in
a year ago resulted in somewhat
conservative Christmas buying, but
there is a much freer feeling this
year, especially at country points.

Dear Sir,—I am an old lime trail

his heap big heart and great big opera

tea and entree, we could have a swell
time. All old timers male and female

General Agencies, Ltd.
with the Government in tbs House ol
Parliament, Victoria, when we placed
the resolutions paused at the lust convention befure them.
We have bad great pleasure in presenting to the Government all resolutions passed at all former conventions,
and especially of the resolutions passed at Nelson, 1 can assure you thai
although we were well received in pre
senting our Nelson resolutions, tha>
we lelt on this our second occasion of
approaching tbe Government, thai
they had commenced to appreciate the
value of this Association, and they did
everything in their power to assist us,
and all that was said by us or by the
Government wae taken by the Gov
ernment stenographer.
1 cannot give too much oredit to
your delegation, for the manner in
which tbey placed the resolutions before the Government, particularly
when it came to a discussion of free
text hooks being supplied by the Government.
From the amount of statistics that
the Hon the Provincial Secretary had
before him, we could see that lie bad
gone to considerable trouble to become
thoroughly posted upon the Depart
ment of Education.
Too much credit cannot be given to
our secretary, for the able manner in
which be placed printed reports and
statistics belore tho meeting, and
which I can assure you were a great
factor in tbe Government's decision lo
make tbe test of issuing a portion of
text books free.
Iu tbis connection I might quote
tbe remarks of the MP. for Richmond
—Mr. Carter Cotton, who said: "Gentlemen, I can assure you that in the
statistics you bave placed before us
you have removed from my mind a
great deal ol fear as to tbe expense oi
issuing free text books to the Province
and further I am sure that the Government consider the Association of
8cbool Trustees of this province, sup
pleiuciitary and complimentary to
them, and I for one might add, that
any further legislation in connection
with school matters, we would consider your association a proper authority
to consult with on the subject.
Speaking upon this matter we took
the liberty to re d the excellent letter
from Maxwell Smith of the Burnaby
school board on the subject of free
text books, and it was regretted very
much tbat be was not , resent with us.
Now, gentlemen, as to the result of
tbe presentation ol these resolutions,
and the work of tbe past meetings of
tbis association? I beg leave to call
your attention to three important
concessions from the Government,
which we can properly claim originated from us.
I refer in the first place to tbe
founding of the University of B. C.
Second, the commencement of the distribution of free text books to the
schools of the province, wbioh was
started at the beginning of tbis school
term. Third, the supplying ol flags to
the schools.
I see that the program calls for a
resolution on the subject, "That we
disapprove of the order to trustees and
teachers, re flag, dated July, 1908, that
we strongly maintain the school
board's insistance of tbe use of the
Canadian Ensign."
I hope during the discussion that
we will inquire into the matter, as to
whether it was an order or not, and
pass no resolution on the subject that
would place us in a false position.
If you look at the report of our convention held in Nelson, in February
1907, you will see that a resolution
was passed, "That a clause be inserted
in the School Act making it compulsory to fly the Canadian llag on all
school buildings during school hours.
Now, in the supplying of the Union
Jack, we cannot say tbat the Government bas not supplied a Canadian Hag
The question comes down to the trustees aud lo tbe several school boards,
to select or Bee which of the Canadian
flags they will fly.
As far aB my information goes the
Government has not made it compulsory to fly the Union Jack, but when
approached upon the subject by the
New Westminster sohool board informed them that they could fly any
flag they desired.
Id tbe face of such evidence as this,
I cannot see how we can pasB any
resolutions savoring of ceuoure to the
Government, on this suhject.
Another subject I would like to call
the attention of the several school
boards to is, the value ol starting a
banking system in each school witb
tbe scholars. 1 believe tbat Vancouver, Victoria and New Westminster
all bave iheie banks iu operation. I
am sure you will agree witb mc that
the lesson ol thrift to tbe scholars and
others, nut the accumulation ol wealth
can well be considered by the school
boaids, who aie parents in trust of the
childn n during their school days.
II you will allow me, I will give you
a short history ol its commencement
About torty years ago, a gentleman
in Belgium, hy his will left an amount
of money that was to be given to the
person who would write the host
essay and give tbe beet plan Ior the
elimination of poverty amongst tbe
people. Tbe judges ol these essays
unanimously agreed on the one who
wrote the essay and gave tbe plan ol
the School Banking System.
This idea was brought to America
and inaugurrted in Long Island by
Mr. T. H. Tbirley, and has been in
operation for tbe last eighteen years.
The last report was that tbe school
children ol the United States bave deposited in their banks, between six
and seven million dollars.
To the members of tbis Association
and trustees assembled, I pledge myself, in tbe event of your decision to
start a Havings Bank in your locality
to send you a copy of all neceBsary
books for the organisation,
I notice with pleasure that we are
to be addressed hy representatives
Irom the Alberta Trustees Association,
I hope that this is a commencement
ol the movement of the four great
western provinces to unite for tbe purpose of printing and supplying tu the
people the school text books Ireo.
It  may be the starting point ol de
parture from present  methods of education.
It is apparent tlmt the most progressive of the nation go Wesi, and I
believe it is up to the people of the
sve6t to break away from tho present
system, and inaugurate a system of
education suitanle to tlie conditions
and requirements of the people; that
is tn say, that we must break sway
from endeavoring to give our young ari
education with ninety per cent of
matter that may be of no use to them
in after life, when they go out and
compete tor a living with tlieir fellows:
If you study the question for a moment, you will see that all our education leads up to the entrance work for
universities, and educates tlie Btiuient
in tbe direction of the professions
Only ten per cent of the Bt" lonts
cmtinue this course. Therefore, I
claim that more attention should he
given to tbe education of the ninety
per cent.
In th' words of a writer in one of
our mag /.incs, 1 lind that the idea
has been i' Iter expressed than I have
been able i do it: "Sinoe au over
whelming majority of children will
never receive any more education than
they get in the elementary schools,the
proper elementary school should be,
uot a link in a chain, a preparatory
department of the high school, but a
complete thing in itself, a complete
education of a very practical nature.
Its object would be to educate children, not for a world of culture and
professional attainment, but for a
world of industrial pursuits."
Since a great majority of high school
pupils leave the high school between
tbe ti at and third year to enter business or the trades, a truly democratic
high school would provide short practical business and trade courses for
tbat majority.
It might be that we pay more attention to the health conditions of tbe
pupils and teachers; that we might
pay more attention to the raising of
healthy-minded and healthy-bodied
men and women; that we pay more
attention to the subject "More building up of tbe body and less building
up of tbe brain"
This idea improperly put aa it may
be, I believe if followed, would bring
about decided changes in tbe life of
our men and women.
Why Bhould the Government not
supply night schools ? Ninety per
cent, who are learning their trade or
business. If it was an established
rule tbat the student bad the privilege of night schools, when he selected
his trade or profession, you would
readily Bee how the present overburdened curriculum would be reduced.
While on this subject I beg leave to
quote to you a few paragraphs from
the Western Canada Medical Journal
for October, 1908, and commencing at
Page 462.
Report ol the teaching of Hygiene
by tbe British Columbia Medical
Association. The committee were;
Ur. W. I). Brydone-Jack, Conveyer,
Vancouver; Dr. R. L. Frazer, Victoria;
Dr. G. E. Drew, New Westminster.
After a summary of the education
office reports on what is being done
in the curriculum in our publio and
High schools along the subjects of
Hygiene aud Physiology, tbey say, I
where so little has been done along
these lines in B. C. the details of the
scheme must be worked out, and the
lirst step would be to have the Education Department appoint a medical
man on its staff, whose duty it would
be to inaugurate a system of instruction fn our public, High and Normal
schools, and act as an advisor to the
Dr. Fagan, onr Provincial Medical
Health OUicer, in bis recent address
to the teachers of B. C. Btatea that
the scope of tbe Soience of Hygiene as
a preservation and promotion of
human life, its task therefore consists,
first of ail in the prevention, restriction, and removal of sickness aud
disease, and the prolongation ot the
individual's life.
Human life is reducible to a cash
basis, incapacitating illness ol the
individual is a temporary monetary
loss to the Province and the public,
and tbe death ol tbe individual a
permanent loss.
The Province having made education compulsory, cannot divest itself
of the responsibility of taking reasonable precautions to ensure that the
conditions under wbicb the children
were instructed, should not bo such as
to disseminate infeotuous diseases or
pruduce physical deterioration.
Dr. W. Old ..right, Professor of
Hygiene in Toronto, proves that the
death rate ol male and female teachers
is considerable above the death rule
in all other occup .tbns.
The report also says, "We, ns physicians, ought to work together to
secure better conditions in our Public
A moro up-to-dato system <if teaching Hygiene then has prevailed heretofore aud this we can only do by
putting aside selfish motives, and
working together for the benefit and
uplifting ol the human race.
One writer puts the results ol the
present education aB follows:
Our present ill-advised system ol
education, is constantly defeating its
own ends, and turning out invalids,
cranks, and book-lull block heads,
igoorantly read, simply fur the want
of a well-balanced currioulum of
instruction, an appropriate plaoe to
physical education.
Now, gentlemen, and fellow trustees, I think I have said enough on
the subject to prove to you tbat it is
necessary to tako up this more practical subject and I would recommend
that before this Convention disperses that we tako into conaideration
the appointment of a committee to
join with a committee from the Medical Association of B. C. and approach
tbe Government in earnest.
As the medical men have, said in
their report, Ibis can only hu done hy
putting aside all  Hellish  motives and
working together for the benelit and
uplifting of ths human race.
I hope yuu will agree with mu as to
the necessity of a code of rules and
regulations for the guldanoe of these
Conventions, particularly as to the
I would suggout  that  it  be made
legiil for any trustee of the Province,
to become a member nnd remain a

I would also suggest a clause respecting proxies, "That nu proxy be

of this Association to nil'or get even

Before closing I beg leave to call
your attention to the increased interest tiiKCii by tlie people of R. O. in

The Job Not as Easy as It May
Seem to Outsiders
The position ol a Bales clerk in a
store is by no means a Binecure and
those who know find that they woik
as hard us anyone else iu tbe city.
The lollowing incidents are only a
few of the many trials that a merchant
or storekeeper has to put up with.
You may think it a picnic tu he a
grocery clerk, lt doesn't look to be
very hard, but just wait until a crank
comeB into the store with a fruwn on
his face; next a taster who taster and
prices for half un hour, and gets a
good square meal and d ies not buy a
cen'.'s worth. Then others come in
and tell you how much cheaper other
Btores are Belling groceries antl refute
to trade with you unless you cut.
Then comes an order over the 'phone
thick aud fast iu a woman's high-
keyed voice who rings off without
giving her name. Jn an hour or two
she rings you up again and asks why
you haven't sent tho6P groceries.
While you are explaining matters tu
her in comes a man who sings off au
order of Hour, potatoes, sugar,,
etc., and whu shouts out ol the door
and down the street. If you haven't
caught the urder you are expected to
guess at it; then there is a roar.
Next conies a man who wants credit.
He haB trade I at other stores aud paid
cash, but uowjiasa job where be gels
his pay only every two weeks, then he
has a email balance. Tbis keeps on
fur awhile and finally his bill is all
The next customer who comes in
aud aBks for credit you politely asks
where he traded last. He Bays: "I
used to trade ut Mr. A.'e, but be
cheated me, so 1 thought I would try
you "
'• Shall 1 call Mr. A. and ask him
if you are all right ?" I ask, "No you
needn't go to that trouble, he says
"1 don't have to trade here,"' and he
goes out aud slam the dour. Just to
satisfy yoiuselfyou call up Mr. A. and
And he owes $100.
"Then there is this kind of a customer—a man who has always paid
cash, who meets with reverses and
asks you for credit. You can't turn
him down, as he has been a good
customer. Y'ou let him have the
goods. The bill keeps growing larger
and larger and finally gets so large
the man goes elsewhere to trade.
Then you are out again.
"I have found tbat the man who
owes the largest bill is the mau who
