TECHIIICH. TRAINING'

Studies Should Be More At\,.   ctive   Suggested
Changes—Mr. Dean's Report.
Drastic changes in tho educational
system of British Columbia that aro
intended to supply a suitable train
ing in after life for every boy and
girl In the Province are recommended
in the report of Mr, Q.H. Dean, Assistant. Superintendent ol Education,
which  will  be BUbmittod  to  the  Lcgis
lature by the Minister of Kducutlon.
The  report,  which  is the result   of
Mr. Dean's  investigations   in  the sell
ools  of  Canada,  tin,ted  Stutes, ling
land,   Scotland,  Ireland,  France, tier
many and Switzerland, is an exn.ui..
tivc one, the recommendations   being
divided Into two main divisions dealing witn tlio training m elementary
schools an I that ol secondary schools
Probablj the most Important and
comprehensive finding In the report ib
in regard to the training of students
in high schools. The total enrol.! mt
in British Columbia public schools
ior the year ending June 30, I'JLI,
wus 57,008. Of this number only
2,901 were enrolled in high school
and college classes. In Vancouver,
the tigures were 12,560, and 1,370; in
Victoria, 4,781, and 154. In other
words only about ten per cent, of thc
children of the province received the
benefit of a state supported system
jot high schools.
WHERE   i'HK BLAME LIRS.
'* In considering these facts," reports Mr. Dean, "the question naturally arises in what lespect is our
high school organization responsible
for this condition/ The question is
almost wholly answered by an in -
spection of the cooise of study nud
Ihe yearly returns, which prove conclusively that the wors of our high
school is aunost wholly devoted to
prepat'ii.. .- -i . . r professional
und. to a hunted extent, commercial
life. The bill of fare provided for
the rural s udent is the same as lor
the city student, and .. . oy uth .i
inecb inlcal bent Is led upon Latin uu
til be leaves school, or is impelled iu
ton Vocation for which ho has no
natural   talent."
In recommending a change of study
in elementary schools, Mr. Bean suggests that the prescribed course   for
classes,   up  to and   Includ n       junior
thirds, should include a suitable grad
ed scheme for work in paper,    card -
board and modeling as a preparation
for  the   m inual  work  of  thc higher
guides.    This     work    i-uould    be the
same for  both bo.s and girls, and tho
instruction  Bhould  be  i i*.  n  by      the
regular class toucher.   Mr.  Dean also
suggests  the revision  of  the manual
training and domestic BClence courses
so that both should cover u period
of three  years only.   In  the former
he resommends that the work should
be  limited  to uniform  type    models,
while   in  the senior    grade it should
Include  practical work in relation to
the home and school environment. In
domestic science a recommendation is
made that the     undue    overlapping
should    be prevented and that   more
time and  greater emphasis should bo
given to the subject of sewing. Both
of    these    courses    he     recommends,
should be extended to the smaller ccn
trcs, and   when  possible these centres
should  be grouped     under a trained
specialist.  Mr. D.'i.n also recommends
the appointment of a  number of travelling instructors, who Bhould     ex -
tend their work to afternoon and evening classes of adults.
VIEWS ON NATURE STUDY,
With regard to nature study, Mr.
Dean recommends that thiB course
should be reorganized nnd made more
flexible. The emphasis F-hould be on
elementary science  in  cities, and    on

The report     urges that provision
Should be made for a specially trained supervisor oi agricultural oducat-
Ion whose duty it would bo to encourage Instruction lu ugrlculture in
schools, and udviso both boards and
teachers as to tho nest nictnod ol
carrying out u definite plan of work,
co-operatais wo.li the Department of
Agriculture so as to prevent duplication  of instruct'on.
Mr. Bean als.,     recommends     that
greater attention should be given to
singing, the exercises mcluuin*.: a con
Bidoruble amount of class -..inging.He
recommends that the amount of his-
t.ny prescribed for high school entrance shoii.d be reduced, and all pull Is afforded equal fiicilitie.; for ad-
mission to secondary woric. ll the
present course la too exacting in non
essentials the defect slim d be remedied at the earliest moment.
The com-.ii. ons with regard to elementary education are sunr
the reconi   endatlon that no specialisation   whut  ever  shoidd   be  under
taken   In  the  elementary school       in
order to  provide  ii scheme  of  voca -
tiomil  training, but that seven years
of general  cultural  work  Should      he
compulsory   for all   pupils.
With regi i to second
Mr, Dean divides this work Into three
main classcB, the' first for those who
continue at school three or four yeurs
i..r passing the entrance examination; second, for those over fourteen
who will pro! ably not remain at school beyond two ycais, and thirdly,
continuation class's for adolescents
at work, '■
TRAINING   IN  ESSENTIALS.
lu dealing with the largj class of
pupils whom, under a broadened co ■
urse, it is hoped to retain at school
Mr. Dean recommends a sound education in essentials for all pupils In-
c tiding a certain amount of house
hold training for all girls and special courses organized in separate schools or In separate! departments of
the same school, ami adapted to university matriculation, or teachers
non-professional requirements, or a
technical training, aB a piepnrntion
for commercial life, for agriculture,
und entrances to colleges of agriculture, for Industrial life, and entrance
to colleges of technology and applied
science, for home life, or for Borne
special branch, 3itch us art and music
With regard to pupil.; ovir fourteen
who will not remain at school beyond two yeurs a recommendation is
Offered of a special industiial train
ing. Such schools should bo estah -
lished, he believes, only upon the
most, careful consideration, and
should be either full time or co-operative with theoretical instruction at
school at practical tiain ng at the
shops of industrial firms.
CONTINUOUS  CLASSES.
Thc continuation classes are intend
ed for adolescents at work. Instruction under this heud should be for u
few hours weekly, and gi.'en in the
day time. In addition to these continuation classes Mr. Mea.i suggests
that evening vocutionul classes
should be established to enable adults who are employed during tbe duy
to supplement tbeir gentral know ■
ledge and practical training. These,
lie believes, shoii.d be mtirely restric
ted to vocational work. He recom -
mends' thut thc instructors for evening trade classes should be selected
from competent men In the trade
without teachers certificates, rather
than from teachers with little or no
industrial  experience.
Mr. Dean is strongly opposed to
the instructors at evening classes being recruited from the ranks ot full
time day teachers or supervisors and
recommends that where this is done
no government grant should be allowed. He is strongly opposed to tho
establishment of a uniform course of
instruction for all localities and sug.
gests that the organization of tech -
nieal and vocational work be made
elastic enough to be adapted to local
conditions. He suggests that owing
to the present lack of trained teuch-
eis for technical instruction a special
ellort should be made by means of
Summer classes,  evening rlusses, and
specuil courses m technical schools to
supply this want.
MUSEUM OF ARTS.
That a college and muBeum of arts
Bhould be organized In connection
With the Victoria Normal school at
the curliest convenient time, lor tad
purpose of fostering the tine arts and
giving a vocational training, in some
i. i raft is tnother of his
recommendations.
The  report also  suggests  that local
advisory committees should bo   ap
pointed to assist in tao organisation
ami management ol teohnicaj ami in.
diistriai bo] Is i!r departments such
committees  consisting   mainly   of  Citizens representing employers or   employes who are spooluliy competent
to act in an advisory capacity. Sim
ilarly const.tut_d committies, should
also be appointed ior commercial und
agricultural departments.
Another   of   the recommendations,
which, ii  it becomes law,  will nave a
far  reaching effect  on  the scaool ut
tendance is that ihe compulsory   attendance Law snou d be ameuded, bo
us to provide m re systematic ellort
and more definlto returns In carrying
11 i. the Provincial regulations.   Still
more drastic is the proposal to grant
fchool boards, und. i  certain specified
conditions, the pi .» ■ to organize con
tinuation .-.cu ,.i,, . ,.u to compel the
.,,.,......    .. oi .a., i.'..ci.ns between the
age fourte n and seventeen. It Is
the failure of s c aid .r^ oi logh scli-
oul t aduci tue ti. nd.ince of u

gurd to a certain minimum of education iii an md s,iei.sa de preparation

IE0R ! 1.NIZATI0N   NECESSARY

Mr. Den, "will contend that a boy

Most of us remember thi wonders
that were performed with liquid air
a few years ago, uud confident were
th;; prophecies that by its use modern life might he revolutionized in
many aspects. Yct, wbut use is be

a wonder, but where d'^es it enter In-
I i the life ofthe av<arage man.' What
■ I lease does it cure, what labor does
it save, whit elfect bus it upon the
high Cost of living? Looking back,
v.c rculibc now that, liquid air is wonderful, just like a performing dog is
wonderful, but that it i us,., like thj
iisj of the dog, is 11: ictly limited.
Now people are beginning to ask if
the history of radium is to he thc
history of liquid uir r.'pei>ted. Is it
a lorcc for good or a toy for the sci-
entiBtsT That It is one Of the wonders of thc natural world is not to he
denied. In a way it is as wonderful

TWHLVH  YEARS OF  RADIUM.
it is being claimed by some doctors
in Toronto und elsewhere that radl

it is dr.'lnrcd to be viibiel'ss for this
purpose, and even dangerous. Probably no medical  mini  has had a long-
ei sxderlenot of radium us u thera •
pcutic agent than Dr. '1 humus Edwin
Fidridge, of Philadelphia, who was
toe lirst doctor In the United States
to Import radium from the Curies,
He has the radium yet, (01 the remarkable thing about indium is that
if you have It once and It is not. lost
• r stolen, you will always have it.
You cannot wear it out or lessen its
power hy constant use. In lflO.'! when
Ur. Kldrldge received Its little tube
of radium, It was giving off heut. It
is giving od heat, today nnd yct there
is just as much of it as over there
was. Dr. Kldrldge has used his ru.l
lutn on scores, If not upon hundr-Hs.
of patients, and has made every experiment with it that he tho I (it likely to result In new discover! is. He
knows also what other doctors and
scientists have done  with  radium.

The balance of this report will appear in our next issue.
no reason to believe that radium is
a cure for cancer, lie has seen ,* i j.
ed and has seen it fall, and Dr. ,£ld-
ridgc does not believe that r uliu u
will ever bea cure for malign, r n
cer, for he compares its effect .o tue
elfect of surgery, it is local. :t
deuls with the effects of cancer and
not with the causes. "There wi'l be

say Dr. Fidridge, "until it is io.'2
generally recognized and ackno vl id ;-
ed that such success involves .he O.e-
struction of thc morbid tenden i 8.
And it must not be forgotten that
cancer is a constitutional dlsiiaa;
consequently, any treatment, to he

to suppose that it hus, md a      r.    1
Oration of  what radium is  vi ' "
this clear. As a matter of fact, we do
not kuow what it is. It is smi i
spoken of as u mineral, but ' bus
neverheen secured in mctiilic .' in,
the usual form being a Chloride .■:• a
bromide. It looks something i.i:e salt
and is always contained in i • i ;s

p.rhaps beneficial effect ipon ai i ine
ill its neighborhood. The .aru' I ty
about radium is its temper I'.ur . It
is always from two to uve uefites
wanner than Its surroundings. It
gives ofl heat, sufficient indeed to
melt more than its own weight ti .ce
each hour. Despite this (act, n one
has ever been able to detect ar
uiieal change in     the rudium. Its
weight is always precisely tbe I . ne.
it utmost staggers thc Imagination
,tO realize that radium is matter exploding or tearing itself asunder into
tiny particles and dro-ecting these
particles through the air or ull h-

and  yet shows no change  what i»

There is a theory to Ihe cflect that
the heat is not generated hy the rnd

that captures and utilizes some rud

theory, perhaps, is as good ns another.   Nobody   knows   what   radium   is
The provincial game icgulutions

in a new act which Hon. ft.J, Dowser, attorney-general, Introduced into

tbe amending act It the stipulation
that   hereafter  lives  foxes  must      not
be Imported or exported without tbe
pe- mission  of  Lie  provitu   il   game de
nartment.    Tbe purpose  of  this  is  to
prevent black fox breeders from sending  foxes    out Of      British  Columbia
and It Is thus expected that, the black
fox breeding industry, ins. far as this
province is concerned, will r. Plain at

practically been denuded SO to speak,
hundreds of tbe vi I table animals hav

the government is to confine fox

To begin with, it is perfect.   To the
end it remains perfect—the Edison—
Blue Amberol Record
No musical-mechanical triumph has approached this remarkable invention of Edison. The new composition
of which it is made catcher and holds the natural beauty
of tone of the world's greatest singers, orchestras and bands,
and holds it after you have played it over 3,000 times.
The Blue Amberol is a perpetual, practically unbrealcahie
record that reproduces ;r. an
amazing way the art of the performers. Don't mi.^ the opportunity to hear it played at some
of the Edison dealers listed be-
lovv. You'll be welcome any day.

Bill fliliilS
Increased Representation  for
British Columbia.
The redistribution bill wus brought
down in the i inline of Commons and
given its ilrst reading, It provides
lor an incrcime ol thirteen or fourteen members in the House, all ths
eastern provinces, exoept Queboo und
possibly i ime ■ Wdwar i Island, will
lose members, while the weBtsrn provinces will gain. British Columbia
will have thirteen new members In
the next. Parliament Instead ol seven
us at present,
The Premier accompanied the Introduction ..f i he measure by an ex-
l lanatory statement In which he ro-
viewed the history ol Canadian re
presentation Irom the beginning and
gave the authority for the new bill to
Increase the mombersDlp of the Commons,   The number of Beats to     bo
■glv eii province was enumerated,
hut that for the Province of 1'rlnco
Kdwurd ui md was left blank for the
committee to deal with. Mr. Borden
Intimated that it might be in accordance with the wishes of the fathers
of confederation that the present ro-
pres ntatlon of rour members he left
to the Island, though the population
was only iiiii.ii hi. in justification ol
this contention, be claimed the iBliind
was largely rural and that an average
rural representation of four could he
made limn that population, The
Premier stated that no action could
be taken in the claims of the oilier
Maritime Provinces since the provincial ministers at their recent conference at Ott.iwa had expressed no
symputhj   In the matter.
The' ullocai on of I oundaries of
constituencies will be left to s committee uf seven membets, four on the
government siiie und Hue,, on the op
position. The I ill will come up for
second reading at an early date and
aftoi that tlie committee will be
named and will net down to work.

principle of equality of leprcsenta-

would be to reconcile these two principles.
Continuing, the Premier observed
thnt it was argued that the rural con
stltuenclss should have a larger representation than the city rtdlngl. It
was claimed that therewasa greater
solidarity and compactness in thc
city. That interests were more compact and could make themselves felt.

There is undoubtedly ii movement
on lout iii favor of rendering our
systivn of education as expounded In
public schools more practical, anil
thc mutter of the advisability or
necessity ol Introducing ilrastie
changes In the school system in force
in B.C. is attracting wide attention.
Mr, Dean, the assistant superintend
ent of education, has set out In a de-
detailed report lilies be favours for
bringing about a change to provide
suitable training for our boys    and
girls, and his suggestions are well
worth  attention.    In   an  able  address
recently delivered locally, Mrs. Coursier dealt with the subject of domestic science, and in tbat connection
emphasised the deslrnabllity of at -
tention    being    paid   to good plain
cool.ing in particular and to practical instruction in other household
duties   in   general.    It.   Is   Interesting
to lia.l that in his report, issued a
Jew  days  later,      Mr.   Dean suggests
the revision of the present domestic
science oourse, winch be feels should
I be made to cover a period ol throe
years only, arranged to prevent undue overlapping! anil iir..ro time and
groa'ter emphasis given  to the    Hiib-
IJoct of   sewing.   Mrs.   Coursier says
that   in   regard  to   the   majority       of
giiis "her education rather leads her
ito beliovo it is somewhat infra dig.
to    have    a knowledge    of    practical
household  affairs and  that since she
, Is as  likely as not   to  marry a    millionaire she will  not  need  to learn,"
If that  is so  it is high  time  the system of education was revised,    and
sinco the bone atmosphere of    our
■ young people is of greatest Import
ance, as Mrs. Coursier rightly pointed  out,   parents  might,   with advantage,    give the   matter consideration
and   seek   to  assist   in   the  education
of the i ohlldron In the home instead
of   relying   aim .si   iiuivi rsully      upon
the school toachor,

IMPORTANT
RULING
In Local Appual Case
The dismissal ol the appeal and the
irons appeal   In  the disc of  I'icard v
Rovelstoke Lumber Co., ot-al, by tne
Supreme Court, 'of Canada lias been
made the subject of im Important nil
ing by thai court which will allect
many appeals on common law judg
ments now entered for healing or pro
I used to lie entered for hearing With
that court. This ruling is to the
ellcct thai in all common law cases
where final judgment has not beun
entered, tbe court can not hear appeals, as these do not come under
the new amendment to its act. All
such appeals will have to be taken
direct to the Privy Council. This
ruling, it was stated, will not allect
cases in quity but only cases at common law.
In thc case at bar ""which drew
down this ruling, tbe plaintiff, Ed-
inond Picard, was a claimant for
gl50,000 commission against. tho
Revelstoke Lumber Co., (the Yale Columbia Timber Co., and Mr. O. F.
Llndmark of Revelstoke. He claimed
that be w.is Instrumental in Introducing the agents of the Dominion Sawmills, Ltd., to the agents of the defendants, which resulted in tho snlo
of their properties to the Dominion
Saw Mills, Ltd.
At the trial of the action In which
Picard was represented by Mr. K. V.
Bodwell, K.C., and Mr. D. A. Mc-
- id and the defendants by Mr. S.
S. Taylor, K.C., and Mr. McCarter
of RevelBtoke, judgment was entered
dismiss ni' the action.   On an appeal
to    the     Provincial   Court   Of   Appeal
Judgment Was given in favor of the
. ut.iii as a, must Llndmark and
um used as nga.nst the other co-
dcfendiinls, nnd a ref.rence to the
registrar wiih or.lend to determine
the amount due  to  Ibe plaintiff,
.t.,ii..,.i wiut.ni', lor Um report ol
the registrar both pftrties entered ap
peals with the Supreme Court of
Camilla. I'icard nppi aled to have
the Judgments iade .ding against
the two defendant ci uDa&les as well
as against Llndmark ml Mr. Llndmark   appealod    to    a.o the action
dismissed   as   a.   . list        ..null, it   was
on i lie bearing of til      appeals tbat
tho Suprome Court i   Canada yoster
day   gave   its   rilling    md   disallowed
both appeals, I'he lourt Intimated
that even had the report of the regit
trar been obtain d before the appeals
were   entered   that it   Would not   have
enabled the court Lo hear tbe appeals
as nnd ir the Judicature act the court
can only hear peals in oases where
a lliuil order is made, ThiB is taken
to menu that tho Bupreme Court re
gards a judgment when- a r ferencc
is ordered to the registrar to assess
damages as being only an interlocutory judgment, The new ml ng will
not apply to casis decided since the
recent amendment to the judicature
act which brings into Uio jurisdiction
of the Supreme Court of Canada
cases where juil uie'.ir. is given elthir
ill whole or in part on any point of
law. Mr. S.M. Taylor appeared before tho Ottawa court as counsel for
defendants.
" it   is true tiiit this c Id weather
has   ts  p irl.   in   th •  d./eoaii.ent  of  ,i
vigorous hardy nd onorgetio people"
says the Calgary   Mbertnn, "but  we
rise lo  suggest,  thttl   perhaps  the race
would be as vigorous and hardy if it
didn't stay cold unite so long in one
i-'iell and we li .' a chance to see
whal it looked like with the thermometer several de reus above zero."

Announcement by the Premier.
The announcement that It Is Intend
ed to i ae ft large amount of Brltlnh
Columbia goods Inoludlng BritlBh Columbia lumber, such an lir, for llniHh-
lshlng In tho construction and oiiiilp-
mont of the provlncinl building in
London,   Kngliind,   was    mado to the
oommlttee from the British Columbia
Manufacturers' ABsoolatlon which wa
iti'd upon the provlnolal oiuborlties.
An aooount ol the claims for an ln-
oreased use of British Uolumibiu
goods mi British Columbia buildings
wiih glvon in the press previously.
Members ot the committee, which
largely oomprlsed Vancouver business
men, stated in the Empress hotel last,
evening that they were well pleased
with the results of tho interview,
Thoy found   thnt to a large extent,
government  had i i doing u good
deal for home-made goods, They
expressed their pleasure at the statement of tho Premier that the pro
duets of the factories and miliB of the
province would lie shipped to lUng -
laud for the construction nf the new
provincial edillce in London, declaring that the Douglas fir of this prov
luce, when used tor finishing pur -
poses In the structure would open the
eyes of the visitors to the building,
and give them a very good ide.i ol
the  value of this  particular wood.
The delegation found that In a gea
eral way there had heen little Infringement by contractors on public
works of the stipulation that
wherever possible goods were to he
bought In British Columbia, Complaint bad been made about the wiring contract for the Vancouver court
bouse   wing,   but   it   was   stated     tint
the successful contractor was a British subject. One or two instances
were given of where goods had been
purchased by contractors on provincial works, across tin line. Thc
Premiei stated thai he would loon
into  these  matters.
The delegation urged that an   arrangement be  made  where all    con -
traits were let for public buildings
thai in addition to    thc contractors
being     British    subjects the sub-con -
tractors also be required to owe al
legiance to the British Flag.   It \vu«
pointed out  that often sub-contract
ors   w.-re      Americans   and   naturally
wen   more likely to do business with
American   manufacturing  and  supplv
houses  than   to  buy  here.    It  was also urged that inspectors of construction and the various clerks of works
be Instructed to keep a close watch
on various contracts to n.ake     cer -
tain that  , the contractors did their
buying   in  this province., insofar as it
at all possible.
\; he close of the rcnterence, tho
tion inspected thi new Normal
school building here. It is stated
that they found that about 83,000
worth of partition forms of vitrified
lad be n Imported from Taco-
: ... Tins.' might well have been pur
Chased in this province, said a ,rnn-
couvi r ""in .. r oi t' ■ dcleg I Ion last
night. It is the proposal of the manufacturers'  association to watch enre
iv all pro' i. inl on*racts and to
notify the government of any cases
of discrimination against local mar.i,
•' cturero. \ request to this effect
.ade to thc dclceation by tho
provincial   executive   yesterday.

any more than anyone knows whut
.'lectricity is. All that the wisest
know is how radium may be produced, and what it will do. That it
has to its credit the cure of certain
chronic diseases, thnt it has healed
open wounds of a non-malignant char
acter, and that it has reduced hyper
trophies is not to be denied. By introducing radium beneath the skin
i of a mouse near the vertebral column
death by puralysis resulted in three
bour3. Guinea pigs have also been
paralyzsd and killed after a few bourd
oxposure, but these experiments are
ei be properly regurd.d a3 the mere
ir.cks of a trained dog, or the man
who lectured upon liquid air. The
nines that have been brought about
by rudium were not of maladies that
defied all other agendas. While it is
conceivable that one might light a
lire with radium, thc fact remains,
l.luil   a  match would do  just as well.

They will be prohibited from dealing
iu the skins of wapiti, moose or curi-
. too us well as deer.
The prohibition against carrying
guns without a license will not apply-
to trap.shooters, target shooters or
militiamen. Boys under Hi must be
accompanied by an adult with a
license.
For any offence und»r the uct the
licenses of hunters may be can -
celled or new ones may be refused
in thc future. Guildes' licenses may
be refused on the grounds of Incompetence, breach of contract or misdemeanors under the law.
North of thc Gfith parallel posses
sors of pelts may hold them up to
three months after the closing of the
various seusons und possessors south
of that degree may hold pelts for two
months subsequent to the closing of
the season, The game department will
have authority to extend cither period.
