SIR RICHARD STRIDE
RETIRES FROM rREMIERSHIP
Is Succeeded by Hon. W. J.
Cabinet—Accepts Post
Bowser—Reconstruction of
of Agent-General
On Wednesday there occurred at the
parliament buildings developments
which led to a change in the leadership of the government a reconstructed cabinet and the opening of a new
era in thc political life of the province.
These developments were the resignation of the premiership by Sir
Richard McBride; his recommendation
to the lieutenant governor that the
Hon. W. J. Bowser be invited to form
a ministry; the acceptance of the
task hy Mr. Bowser and the formation of a new cabinet with the following personal:
Hon. Vi. .1. Bowser—Premier and
Attorney General.
Hon. A. C. Flumerfelt—Minister ot
Finance and Agriculture.
Hon. C. B. Tisdall—Minister ol
Public Works and Railways.
Hon. W.  R. Ross—Minister of Lands
Hon. Thos. Taylor—Provincial Sec-
retary and Minister of Education.
Hon. I.orne Campbell—Minister of
Mines.
Hon. Wn.'. Manson—President of the
Council.
Another development was thc resignation of the Hon. .1. H. Turner, Agent General in London, the tendering
cf that important post to Sir Rich-
nrd McBride. and the latter's acceptance.
The rapid reconstruction of the government, accomplished, in reBpect to
the execution of all details of constitutional formality, within the Bpace
«'f a few hours, came "us a bolt from
lhe blue" to all save the few within
the inner political circle who had pre-
l.nowledge of the pending event.
His Hon Lieutenant Governor Barnard was it attendance at the parliament buildings early yesterday
morning. At noon a meeting of the
executive council was held when Sir
Riclmrd made the announcement that
he had tendered his resignation aa
Premier and Minister of Mines to His
Honor, wbo had accepted the san.e ;
;enil that he had recommended His
Honor to Call upon Mr. Bowser to
form a ministry.
Mr. Bowser was shortly afterwards
pent for by His Honor and following
this conference, very shortly thereafter, with a decisive promptitude so
characteristic of thc new Premier, an
nounced that he would at once form
o ministry. At 4 p.m. all the members ol the new government, the per-
fmnel of which is as announced, eas-
pembled in His Honor's apartments
and formally took thc outh of oflice.
EXPLAINS RESIGNATION ■
In an interview Sir Richard said :
"Yes, I have tendered my resignation
as Prime Minister to His Honor,
which has heen accepted, und my seat
in the legislature as one of the representatives 'if the City of Victoria to
the Honorable the Speaker. Owing to
ii.lv.ineing yeurs, the Hon, J. H. Turner,  Agent  General,  London,  England,
wh.. hue-, done such splendid work for
the province tin..ugh long years     in
various capacities! ol Minister of Fin-
i.nce juid Agriculture. Premier and
Agent General, is withdrawing from
cilice and I have aceapted the post.
In Liking this ste|i I do QOi wish tho
people  of    Uritish Columbia or    my
Constituents in Victoria to think
that I do not appreciate to the full
the long and very complete confidence
they have reposed in me. I have,
however, sat in the legislature continuously since thc elections of 1898,
end for the greater part of the time
6ince have directed tbc affairs of Brit.
i.-h Columbia during what was, perhaps, the most important and pro
gressive period in itB history, witb
all tho zeal and ability 1 could command, and have endeavored to do my
bit for province and empire
"Early during my administration 1
laid down a definite program of development, particularly in reBpect of
lailways and public works, and while
it Is of common knowledge thnt I
might have participated in the wider
innge of affairs in the Dominion, I
declined to leave my post until I saw
tho end    of my endeavors fairly    In
f.lght. The railway policy, In which 1
had the unanimous endorsement nf thc
people 1h now priietlrally an accomplished 'art, nnd we have spont about
$89,000,000 In useful nnd ner saury
public works. Tbe various other policies for which the rovernment bas
RtOOd, and which have placed British
Columbia In the forefront on this continent.     In respect  uf sound measures
of an advanced character, forestry,
agriculture, taxation, etc., are all
worked out and working successfully.
I feel that, as a consequence, when
the war is over and conditions have
once become normal, this province
will he in a position to make strides
ahead as in no sense was ever tho
case hefore. |
'''In the meantime, the present war
las created a new situation In which
the varloiiB parts of the empire have
been brought together very closely
and with a great intimacy of interests. The relations of British Columbia and Great Britain—and the countries of the allies as well—will, in a
business way, assume a newer and
more imiiortant aspect than ever before, and it is my aim and desire to
aesiBt in developing those relations in
the fullest degree possible. I have, in
my visits to Great Britain and the
continent, carefully studied our interests from the viewpoint of those relations and think that, from my more
or less personal knowledge of men
and conditions in the Old Country, I
can perform a more important service
for British Columbia there now than
I could here.
CONFIDENCE) IN MR. BOWSER
"I have recommended the Hon. W.
J. Bowser to His Honor as my successor, and in his capable hands I
have every confidence that the affairs
of state will be energetically and
most efficiently directed. Hie government will, I am sure, continue to
j ossess the trust and respect of the
electorate, so generously reposed in
mine for the past thirteen years. T
have only to thank the people of British Columbia and my old constituents in Dewdney and of Victoria,
whose interests I have endeavored
faithfully to serve, tor all their   past

Tl.e teachers and pupils of Selkirk
BChool marked the close ol work for
the year LM-5 by holding a reception
and exhibit ior. ol work last Thursday
evening for all parents and friends of
tbe school. The affair was a brilliant
success both In point of attendance
and in interest aroused. For two
hours, from seven until nine o'clock,
a constant stream of visitors poured
through the spacious halls or throng-
id the class rooms and broad stairways. Everywhere were seen parents
1 eing piloted hither and thither by
eager children anxious to show the
particular "bit" he or she had contributed to tbe exhibit. To say the
least no one was disappointed. Even
those who had come feeling more or
loss indifierent or uninterested were
speedily roused to delighted enthusiasm as they realised the excellence of
the dainty color work or perfection of
the penmanship so lavishly displayed
on all sides. Specimens of writing,
drawing and painting were on view in
every class room, each one being a
part of the regular work done in
school hours by every pupil.
In thc junior gradeB the walls wero
bright with samples of mat weaving,
paper folding and color work. Thc
skill and accuracy shown hy tiny fingers was marvellous. This painting,
drawing and color work aroused the
keenest interest and drew complimentary rematks from all visitors in every class room. Each little work ol
art spoke for itself, without any accompanying explanation, from thc
primitive landscapes and fruit of the
'baby class' the prettily tinted leaves
aril formal designs of the intermediate grades to the final magnificent art display made by the pupils
of Principal Martin's class. Here ap-
I'.eared maps of all countries which
would he creditable to a provincial
exhibition for correctness of line and
dainty coloring; groups of models,
conventional designs ia black and
white, free hand drawing of books
nnd flowers each and all equally perfect.
A close second in point of interest
was tbe penmanship exhibit, showing
us it did a specimen of writing by
every pupil in the school, also what
progress is heing made in introducing thc system of "free-arm movement," which has for its object the
combination of a maximum of speed
and legibility.
Shortly before nine o'clock a rumor that something interesting was
taking place in the principal's room,
drew the throng in that direction until classroom ami hall overflowed. Tha
event proved to be the presentation
to Mr. Martin by the pupils of his
class of a handsome reading lamp.
Mr. Manning, chairman of the school
hoard icting as sjmkesn.an lo: the
class made the presentation, expressing their deep appreciation of his efforts on their behalf. Mr. Manning
concluded with a few word* of the
highest eulogy for tbe splendid specimens of work exhibited by the whole
school. In reference to the work
shown by Mr. Martin's own class Mr.
Manning said that it seemed almost
incredible that a class which had failed in drawing in last midsummer's
examination could have achieved such
success in the short space of four
months.
Mr. Martin, in reply, thanked hia
class not alone for their gift but for
the fine zeal with which they Invariably responded to his endeavors to
advance them in their education. Six
months more of this keen and harmonious spirit he declared, would place
Selkirk school Entrance class among
the first ranks in the province next
July. In regard to their gift, he admitted that some truth lay In the
rumor that had caused tbem to select
a parlor lamp as an appropriate present. "For He's a Jolly Good Fellow," sung in hearty chorus greeted
the principal's closing words.
Mayor Foote, being called upon for
a few remarks, warmly congratulated
both Mr. Martin and his staff for the
htandard of excellence tbey had attained in a few short months.

PREPARING THE MUNITIONS
All anxiety regarding the output of
bigl explosive shells lm use by th"
Allied force.? seem to have disappeared, From the front in France and
Belgium come repeated assurances
that in the matter of shell fire the
Allied forces have an ever increasing
superiority. They ran fire three shells
to the Germans' one. The work
whicb has produced this very satisfactory result bus been performed in
the last nine months under Mr. Lloyd
George in Britain and M. Albert
Thomas in France. Naturally no figures regarding output are allowed to
to come out but the fact that Britain now has 2/I2G "controlled estah
llshments" making munitions, in
place of about »"0 last June, is in itself significant. Mnny of the privately owned armament factories in Britain bave doubled tbeir plant. Soma
of them have trebled it. The government itself bus nearly a score of lar re
arsenals going into commission. The
output in tbeir particular lines ot
some of the enlarged British establishments rivals that of the Krupps
and the Creusots. The veryjgreat improvement in the Russian army's
equipment is largely due te. tbc immense progress in the British munitions output.
There is another significant side to
11..- munition question. Though .t-
ders for shells and other equipment
were banded out in large blocks to
1'nif el States Contractors early .n
1916,   it   Was   midsummer   before   .Uliv

.Sir:— 1 would be much obliged if
you would Kindly insert these fc.
words:
I notice in yesterday's issue of the
"Revelstoke Review" a letter dated
IJth Nov., 1915 under the signature of
Robert Tapping stating: "1 am
strongly opposed to the secretary ot
the Local Conservative association
boating a petition interfering with
the present existing Prohibition
movement."
Now, Mr, Editor, the insinuation is
so strong in this statement that the
majority of people reading it would
naturally consider that Mr. Tapping
stated that the secretary of the local
Conservative association had floated
the said petition; so aa a matter of
fair play to the then secretary, who
is it present out of the city, I can
positively state that he circulated no
such petition.
Further, Mr. Editor, Mr. Tapping
may be strongly opposed to a legion
of things, but I do not think he
.-hemid word his statements so ambiguously.

Daylight will be let through the
Belkirks tomorrow, marking tbe near
completion oi the greatest railway
tunnel In the world and shortening
the Canadian Pacific railway tunnel
lour miles, reducing the gradients and
eliminating tedious and dangerous
loops by which the trains of the CP.
R. now labor their course up to the
top ol  the  continent,  aud down again
im the either side. Tomorrow is tha
flay on which the contractors,
Messrs. Foley, Welch ,£ Stewart, have
set as tbe day when the "shot" will
be discharged connecting the ends of
the tunnel, the bore will not be completed by any means as it is a tre-
u endous undertaking which will require some months yet to put into
t-hape as planned for a double track
railway line. But when, the round of
shots :s fired on the nineteenth—nothing unforseen occurring in the mean-
tune or on that day—the first peep of
daylight will pierce the Selkirks underneath Mount McDonald and the
miners and muckers workli ' from the
rast end will be aMle to reach through
the opening and shake hands with the
western end gang.
Mr. F. W. Peters, superintendent ot
the C.P.R. in British Columbia, yesterday intimated that it was planned
to mark tbe occasion by a visit of
provincial, civic and railway officials,
and to have them there to witness
the final work eif opening communiea-
tion from ne side ol the Selkirks to
the other. The junction will he made
in the mam heading, thc bore sent
ahead of the principal work ol excavation.

a great ravine between Mount Macdonald on the right and Mount Tup-
pei on the left, entering Rogers Pass.
The Pass gets its name from Major
A. R. Rogers, the explorer who first
jienetrated the Selkirks in 18S1
through this pass which now bears
his name. Between two lines of peaks
the railway finally arrives at the summit, 4,351 feet above sea level, and
descends into Illecillewaet valley. Tha
loops can be seen down from the summit. After leaving Glacier the train
follows the natural curvature of tha
mountain and descends by startling
turns. After this tortuous trip tha
traveller can realise tho great precautions the C.P.R. has taken to safeguard its patrons, though a realiza-'
tion probably does not come W'ltn

side of ihe route, scenery unmatched

The modern tunnel will do away with

The dance held in the drill hall last
nisrht hy the Red Cross society was
very successful and a splendid time
was enjoyed. Owing to the fact that
several other entertainments were heing held the number present was not
as large as usual but never-the-less
a goodly number attended.
The music which was supplied by
Mr. Leonard from Salmon Airm was
much enjoyed and the refreshments
strved by the ladies of the society
was delicious.
The refreshment committee of whicb
.Mrs. C. Holten was convener consisted of Mrs. W. A. Foote, Mrs. 0. A.

unsurpassed  in  America.

time the Government had   their
team on hand and the tirst game was
very close 21 to 21).   The second game
was won by the Bankers making it   a
"horse     apiece."   Both     teams   were
sure     ol     the   game,  the final score
3n favor dt the Government     was   21-
17.
The second game of the evening
was between the Dent house and the
Undertakers. In this game the Dent
house had their regular team in action and everyone looked for a hotly
contested game. They were not disappointed. The Pent house took the
first game easily by a score of 21-K1,
but the Undertakers put it nil over
them in the second game with a score
.if 21-7. In the third game the Dent
house started off with a rush and nad
the Undertakers going for a while piling the score up to 16-5 in their favor. They must have had a little
touch of over assurance. The first
thing they knew the Undertakers were
crawling up very near the 16 mark,
and it was not long before the score
was even and the race was neck aud
neck. The excitement grew and everything counted, the score was a tia
light through to the 19 mark and
then the Undertakers Blipped one over
•ind won the game 21-19. Notwlth«
standing this the Dent house have tha
riL'ht to believe in their team yet as
they put up a good game, and they
feel sure that with a little more practice they will be able to "lick their

month for each camp. The boys are
given notepaper and envelopes free,
musical entertainments, First Aid
talks. French conversation, and many
other homelike treats, which no one
else provides. Twenty-one Y. M. C.
A. secretaries are now in England and
France with the Canadian divisions.
While the social service features of
this work are prominent and very necessary and helpful, the fundamental
objective of the council is work definitely spiritual, and they aim to provide as nearly ns possible home conditions away from a home and a

sirous of, he will be pleased to render

he requested the board at their meeting, to allow him to accompany him
to assist him at. other points. Mr.
Duncan when finished his campaign,
will work among thc soldiers at N'ew
Westminster, where he will train for
overseas, and is now ready to nu.
The scheme for carrying on this
