COLUMBIA.
Oovemmont Urged by Trustees Association to Consider a Number of
Recommendations For Our
.Public Schools.
Last week a delegation from
the school trustee convention
interviewed the government
regarding a manlier of recommendations looking to the betterment of the educational sys
tern. Among the matter* mentioned was the subject of free
text books which has been
heard in parliament from time
to time and to which the representatives of the Trustees
Association are now asking the
serious consideration of the
government.
The matters discussed with
the government were embodied
in a series of resolutions psu
sed by the association in Sep
tember last. Although emphasis was given to the recommendation of free text books,
as being the most important,
here were various other suggestions offered. One of these
was that the law should provide for a medical examination
of teachers and pupils.      This

in the near future. The discharge
of men and the shortening of the
hours of labor in many factories, is
not pleasant to contemplate. For
the twelve months past, however,
I ays Toronto Saturday Night, the
evidence is still On the side of
growth and expansion. Hank clearings is a pretty safe index of the
volume of trade aud for both Toronto and Montreal the figures show
increases over past years. It is
true that the figures for December
for December last show a decrease
as compared with those of January
1907, but the total for the year is
$1,288,095,517, an increase of $9,-
780,000, over the big year of 1906.
Since 1901 the clearings at the
Toronto banks have almost doub'
led. In Montreal there has also
been a substantial increase in clearings. For the past year the figures were $1,955,700,000, as
against $1,533,500,000 in 1906, the
previous high record. On the
other hand, the banking returns of
clearances in the United Statcsjgeir
erally show decreases. The customs returns here and in Montreal
were also the largest on record.

Tha Provincial Oovernment Takes Decisive   Action   To   Protect   tbe
Oame.-Much Damage Haa
Been Done of Late.
The bounty on panthers and
wolves has been increased by
the provincial government from
$7.50 to $13,
The action has been taken
after the provincial government has investigated the representations made to lhem by
the sporting interests of Vancouver island and mainland,
asking that some such action
snould be ad.pted. Hon. Ur.
Young has had conditions generally looked into and finds
that throughout Vancouver island especially the young deer
and grouse have suffered severely from the depredations of
the panthers and wolves.
Upon the mainland tne same
conditions exist though there
it is aggravated by the pres-
ence-of coyotes. , The bounty
upon the latter is $2 50 a head.
The provincial government
believes that with the increased
bounty hunters will go after
the panthers and wolves especially. The skins generally
are worth from $3 to $5 and
with the bounty hunting them
should be profitable.

An Error ln the Obituary.
S.ivs the Riveitnn Republic: We
made a serious error in the obitir
.11. notice of Tom Harris, whu qui!
the earth last Wednesday. We
said lhat Tom bad .du.iv. been a
good citizen. This is a mistake,
as Tom had been in jail ou several
and sundry occassions for minor
offences, the most serious of which
was changing the brand on a sorrel
horse belonging to the 3-bar ranch.
Tom was, however, about as acceptable a citizen as ever came
from the Goose creek country,
which locality has furnished the
bulk of our jail-boarders.

The table of yearly bank
clearings for 1907 shows an
increase in Vancouver of 44.5
per cent, over 1906, and Victoria an increseof J 1.3. Winnipeg's increase was only 18.85
per cenf, and Montreal and
Toronto only a Iractional increase,
The interior department is
drawing up regulations which
will require that all emigrants
seeking admission to C mada
must come to this country direct from their place of birth
or their country or citizenship.
This w.H apply both to Atlan

end to the emigration of Japanese from Honolulu to British
Columbia.
Jerome K. Jerome, addressing a large congregation of
men at Whitefields Tabernacle,
London, England, on " The
Troubles of a Well-Fed Man,"
said: "I am a well-fed man,
I have very little to grumble
at as far as material things are
concerned. I have a very
charming wife; I have delightful children, though we occas-
sionally have difference of
opinion. And yet in spite of
all I am not happy. Like the
old lady in heaven we have an
unfortunate habit of thinking
of the poor folks in hell." Mr.
Jerome referred to the eight
millions in Great Britain who
did not know what dinner
meant, who were living the
lives of wild beasts, without
the wild beast's privilege ot
making a bee-line' for his food
when he saw it. When returning home he might pass the
people on the Embankment.
"Why not throw them over
into the river?" exclaimed Mr
Jerome. "Cold blooded murder to leave them. I call it
stealing to sell a man, because
he can only buy small quantities, coal at ii a ton. I call
it stealing to charge six shillings for a damp cellar in the
slums, and to take savings
from the poor and use the
money for gambling. When
you mention old age pensions
every capitalist paper in the
two continents screams that
you are damaging the holy
cause of thrift. Theft is our
system. That is how we live.
We have turned God's temple
into a den of thieves. As for
robbing the rich, if there is
any robbing to be done you
take my tip and put your
money on the rich. What is
called competition nowadays is
c impetition between those who
have everything an J those who
have nothing."
Am Old Maid a Prayer
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I wish I had a man to keep;
If there is one underneath the bed,
I hope he heard every word I aaid.
A man.
