that he failed to reason what the
logical outcome of his expressed

to the opinion that over-zealous-
ness for his friend, Constable
Thompson, is accountable for his
indiscretion in omitting to do so.
It is very evident, from Mr. Gun-

The thirteenth annual convention of
the Provincial W. O. T. U. of British
Columbia, which opened in New Westminster Tuesday afternoon last, in the
lecture room of St. Andrew's (Presbyterian) church, concluded its labors on
Thursday evening.
The work of lhe convention is briefly
summed up in the following resolutions
and recommendations:
1. Beaolved—That wo recognize the
good hand of nur God which has lieen
over us during the past year, ai.d pledge
ourselves to an increased endeavor to
curry on llis work faithfully,
Kesolved—That we wiil urge upon our
local unions the necessity oi continuing
to make strenuous efforts to secure a
better observance of the Lir.l's dav.
Notwithstanding all thnt has been dune,
fruit and tobacco stores are kept open,
boats und cars continue in run, and in
other ways ihe Sabbath is openly desecrated, We, therefore, urge that our
unions discountenance the same, nnd
endeavar to secure belter legislation on
the subject.
Resolved—Owing to the already overcrowded carrtcuium illuui-publicschuuls,
that we recommend the Provincial
Superintendent of S, T. I. in public
schools lo endeavor, Ibis year, to obtain
the ^Introduction of ilie Pathfinder
series, jn place of Cutter's physiology,
which is at present used, as the former
work, not only includes tbe knowledge
contained iu the Cutter's physiology,
but also the effects of narcotics and
bi illiniums upon lhe human system.
Besolved—That, believfng a kindergarten training should be the foundation of all public school education, we,
through our Provincial executive, me-
morallze the Board of Education, urging upon them the importance of having
the lowest class in the public schools in
our cities taught on the kindergarten
Believing that it is of tlie utmost importance that, while our children are
receiving the education provided hv our
public schools, they should also he* prepared for life hy a knowledge of some
practical work which would prepare
them, iu a measure, for their future life;
therefore, be it resolved, That we,
through nur Provincial executive, me-
iiinrahze the Board of Edqcation, urging
upon them the importance of introducing manual labor into the public schools
of this Province.
Resolved—The time having nrrived
when ii is desirable to erect 11 new building for our Refuge Home, that this convention empower tlie managing committee of the Home, iu conjunction with
the Provincial executive, to lake such
measures as may be necessary to begin
tlie work.
Resolved—That the local union encourage a cash system of business, instead of credit among their members.
Resolved—That tl.e Presidents of the
Victoria, Vancouver, and Westminster
Unions be constituted a committee on
reduced rales of travel for Provincial VV.
C. T. 1°. delegates and ollicers.
R.'solved—Thai, whereas the editors
of the newspapers of our Province have
been most generous in alforiling us trie
privilege of using their columns, and iu
reporting our many meetings, we desire
to extend to Ibcn our best thanks for
their kindness.
Resolved—That the warn.est thanks
of this convention he tendered to tlie
ladies of the Westminster union for
their gracious hospitality and entertainment of the delegates to our convention ;
to St. Andrew's Session for the use of
their church and school-room 1 also to
Miss Vass for her faithful presence at all
our meetings, and thoexcelient manner
iu which she has presided at the organ.
The report of the plan of work committee was lead and adopted, as follows:
"Your committee recommended:
I. That, thc mothers of the W. C. T. U.
secure the co-operation of the young
people of the Christian societies in enforcing the prohibitory tobacco law, that
literature on narcotics be distributed
among tl.e young people, and anti-
tolmcco leagues he formed among the
ehildren ot the public schools or Sunday
"2. That a depart ment of systematic
giving he established, and that our unions he urged to discountenance the
raising of money to carry on W.C.T.U.
work through bazars, fetes, Ate.
"That each union endeavor to secure,
if possible, a promise from their members to patronize grocere who do not sell
spiritoiis liquors, in preference to those
who do, even though thu latter may he
able to undersell the former by the extra
prnlil Ihey make upon their liquors.
"4. Thill in tll08U places where scien-
tillc temper..ace is not a compulsory
Biibjecl taught in the public Schools,
prizes be ollcreil by our unions for either
the bell examination in ihis Biibjecl or
the best, essay written Jon sume phase of
total ahstcaucc.
"b. That Inasmuch  as the newspaper
is to a large extent the educator   ol   llie
mosses, your committee would suggest
that conscientious, painstaking efforts
be made by our several unions in securing and supplying with bright, crisp
temperance news a purl of a column ill i
llie daily or weekly new-papers.
"li. That eacu union endeavor lo secure the appointment ol a pi dice mat run
iii iis locality, and that tiie  Provincial
W. C. T. U. endeavor to sei ure s.ich uu
appointment fnr tlie Provincial gaols,
That in order to increase temperance
knowledge and secure VV, 0, T. U. members, we recommend the observance of
membership day once a quarter, Instead ul once a year.
"8, That every eU'ort he nnuie to educate the public mind   tu   the   benelicial
effect which woman's enfranchisement
will have iu improving the monilsuf our
"I). That we urge upon the local W.C.
T.U.'s to take advantage of the opportunity of a change of government in the
Dominion House ol Commons to secure
prohibition ofthe manufacture ami Importation of alcohol, in any form, except
for mechanical, scientific uud medicinal purposes, inasmuch as the present
leader of the government expressed his
willingness to do nil that was in his
power for. the prohibition of the liquor
traffic as soon as 11 was lhe wish of the
nu.joiily of the Canadian volers."
