May the New Year be the brightest, happiest and
most prosperous you have ever had, is the wish of
the management and staff of The News to its readers.
At no time in the city's history could a Happy and Prosperous New Year
be wished with more prospect of the consummation of the desire for the people of New Westminster than with the dawn of 1913.
Our citizens are by a large majority progressive and optimistic. With
good reason for the faith that is in them, they can advance with every assurance of success.
May every citizen prosper this year as never before and may our happiness know no bounds and may our lives be better by our association with this
fair city and may the lives of all be better by our association one with the
In many respects 1 regret that I am about to sever my connection with
official life in New Westminster. It is a great thing to be even a small factor
in the building of a city and if my efforts along this line have been or any
service to my fellow citizens and the municipality, I shall be doubly happy
in seeing my fondest wishes realized in the future development of New Westminster.
"1 would extend New eYar's greetings to the citizens of our city and wish
one and all a most happy and prosperous New Year."

In conclusion the. report spoke very
highly of the new street traffic bylaw
and also the amended blasting bylaw,
which be considered had strengthened
their hands towards the better government of the municipality.
A newspaper is an impersonal institution, but with the close of a year whose latter part has seen many improvements made in this journal and the dawn of another
year which we trust will see still more progress achieved, we have to announce that
the reorganization of the New Westminster News, commenced a few weeks ago, is
now practically complete and that all departments are now placed on a thorough business basis. ffefijttti ���
The directorate of The News is composed of Westminster men���live business
men���whose interests are identical with the interests of New Westminster and the
Fraser Valley, and who have an undving faith in the great future before the Royal
- City.
The managing director, Mr. Robb Sutherland, who has been in charge for the
past two months, has the advantage of a thorough training in all departments of newspaper work, business, editorial and mechanical, and will devote his whole time and
energy to the building up of The News.
The News will be first, last and attthe time a paper for New Westminster and
the Fraser Valley.  It will "boom" neither, but it will WORK and BOOST for'both.
It will cheerfully receive and publish suggestions for the improvement and upbuilding of the city and district, but the "knocker" and pessimist will not find space to
air his grievances in its columns. * .     '
The News will print all the news it can find to print about the city and valley
It is going to print all the good things it can find to print about the men and women of New Westminster.
It is going to do its best to build up New Westminster, and to help everybody in
the city.
It will at all times advocate the buying of New Westminster goods in preference to those of any other town or city.
It will advocate a white British Columbia and the total exclusion of Asiatics in
the future.
The staff is composed of live men in every department, men who are willing and
able to work for the interest of the city and district, men who know what a good paper should be and are capable of making the News one of the best
The editorial staff of the News has been strengthened by the addition of Mr. W.

The News relies on the people of New Westminster and district to give it the
support it deserves, and thus help to build up a newspaper worthy of the city and valley to whose solid advancement its colmuns   will ever be devoted to.
We ask the co-operation of the citizens. Don't be pessimistic and belittle your
city.    Just LET NEW WESTMINSTER GROW. Watch it!   Help it!
Edmonds, Dec 31.���A remarkable
record for police work Is shown in
the annual report of Chief of Police
Parkinson which was handed' to the
council last evening.
' Ont of a total of 340 cases brought
before the magistrate no less than
329 convictions were obtained and, of
the II cases dismissed, two have since
pssaed upon fry the attorney general,
giving the police praise for bringing
such cases before the court of Justice.
Motor traffic violations totalled 62
cases, followed by Street Traffic bylaws, 47; Blasting bylaws, 28; Health
act, 18; theft In various forms, 26;
vagrants, 20; game protection act 6;
trade licenses, 3; fire arm*, 38.
Thia Is regarded as a record In
police circles among the municipalities in the province and It speaks well
for the work of Chief Parkinson and
bis force during the past year.
The collections In fines amounted
to $3840. while other amounts #ew
collected la connection with their
work.   These were as follows: Road
"Next July I shall enter upon the fifty-sixth year of my residence In New
Westminster. As 1913 dawns upon us 1 wish to extend the heartiest and best
of New Year greetings to all who are today living in the city. I appreciate
the work that is now being done here and I trust that ail our people���old
residents and new arrivals���will be as one in building up New Westminster
upon sure and steady foundations."
Mr. T. J. Armstrong is the oldest living representative of the first settlers at this point on the Fraser river. Some account of his li.'o will be found
elsewhere in this issue.
"You ask me to give you a New Year message to the people of the city,
oldtimers and new comers alike. Well I have always been optimistic of the
future of New Westminster, and I am satisfied that after all these years of

Facts and Figures Show in
No Uncertain Manner
City Growth.
Civic and departmental annual
stat.sties issued yesterday indicate,
in a striking manner, the remarkable
measure of prosperity the city ol
New Westminster has enjoyed during
the year 1912. 1'he building permits
increased by practically 40 per cent.,
the receipts of the city treasurer's
department���the city's income���by 31
per cent.; all other figures show a
corresponding growth.
The building permits, which can b.'
taken as the beBt Indicator of the
general progress, totalled 81.634 K28
for the year, as.compared with $1124.
~S7 In 1?11. ".'bo,latter'figure does not
include January, and the first threo
weeks of Febri:'nry on which no record
was kept of the building permits; but.
nevertheless, the advance may be
taken to he about $500,000, or in the
neighborhood of 40 per cent
The biggest permits taken out during the year were for the Hankev
block next the Russell hotel; the
Royal Columbian hospital, which ran
$ 80.481.24
'  6,482.05
above the $100,000 mark; the British
Canadian Lumber plant on Lulu Island.' which was one of the largest If
not'tlin largest; the new Hlsh school,
the' Seventh 'Avenue school, the Fraser
hotel, the Trsim building, and tho
Wetienball building.
There ware a number of other fairly large permits taken out, but the
above were among the most notable.
The,bulldlog was not confined by an?
means to the erection of big blocks
as practically 75 per cent, of thi
permits lashed were for, new homes
or alterations or additions to bouses
at present erected. This Is one striking evidence, In Itself, that the growth

closed his accounts for the year 1912
with plenty of money in his pockets
and a balance sheet of receipts and
expenditures that bespoke the prosperity of the nation.
For the first half of the current
fiscal year, ending today, disbursements exceeded receipts by between
two and three million dollars, accord
ing to estimates ot treasury officials,
the exact figures lor December 31 not
being available. The doflclt a year

This Improvement over last year It:
due to the remarkable Increase In
customs and internal revenue receipts
during the past six months. Receipts
from all sources from July to December were approximately 8863,000.006,
or more than twenty-three million
greater than during tha corresponding period of 1911.
The aggregate expenditures for the
six months ending today ware about
1366,000,000. This was nearly five
million more than for the seme pefHori
last year, the Increases being due
mainly to large expenditures for the
army and the pension payments as a
result ot the pension legislation of
the last congress. The general fund
of the government today contained up
wards ot 8140,000,000, while a; year
ago It held only 8126.936,000. Th��

Washington. Dec. 81.���The expiration at midnight of the treaty of trade
and commerce between America and
Russia, marking, as it does, a complete failure of diplomacy to adjust
grave Issues between the two countries, throws upon the administrative and judicial officials ot the governments the whole burden of the
maintenance of the traditional of all
friendly relations between the two
countries as well as the conservation
of rapidly growing trade already
amounting to over $60,000,000 annually.
The treaty which had been in effect since 1892 had been denounced
by the United States as a popular
feeling against Russia's refusal to
recognize passports Issued to American Jews. No negotiations likely to
result In a new treaty are In progress.

The New Year has dawned���1913. For all the unlucky numerals at the end
��** it, we feel that 1913 will prove an even more eventful year In the history of
Kes Westminster than its predecessor.
l��t us glance for a moment at the year which has just sped, the year
which we firmly believe will hereafter be known oe the year of Westminster's
awakening, of her full realization of the destiny which lies before her as the
fcest meeting place for keel and rail in the fair land of British Columbia, as
the mother city of tho great national Pacific port of Canada to be.
We have seen during the past year an unprecedented amount of improvement work effected in our city, we have seen the launching of a harbor scheme
which bids fair to reach a fruition of boundless importance to this city within
-the next few weeks. What have we today that we were without a twelvemonth ago? Far transcending even the value of paved streets and graded
roads we have the solid conservative Bpirlt for which New Westminster has
always been famed, bending itself to the work of building up a real city whose
foundations shall be based on no boom, but upon solid and everlasting founda-
This spirit of solid progress is In evidence everywhere today, and has been
manifesting itself during the past year more than at any other time in our history- We see evidences of it In not only in the perfection V>f harbor plans, in
better telephones or Improved car service, but also In the banding together of
citizens In associations pledged to work individually and collectively for the
sued of Westminster, in greater and better May Day festivals and Provincial
eohibitions, in improved facilities for acquiring or exercising knowledge in literary and artistic circles, in healthy innovations In the world of eport.
All this is well. We have prospered, as the whole Dominion has prospered during the past year. But material growth, to stand four square to all
the winds of adversity, must bo accompanied by growth in other spheres of
Unman interest. We need to tackle this New Year with minds of the broadest, fully aware of the tremendous responsibilities both to the present generation and to those which come after with which we are entrusted. For this is
��ar building stage still, and a false step now will mean far more than it would
were we already grown to greater power.
Westminster has stood by herself, will stand by herself, and we are confident that her people are capable of working out their own destiny. Their
���wants! during the past year is sufficient guarantee for that, even were there
ssot the sixty odd years of endeavor preceding that time to which to point.
We might dip into the future and paint a picture of the coming day when
the Fraser shall be a second London river, lined with the  smokestacks  of a
thousand industries, studded with the ships of the seven seas, but  today, as
we stand at another milestone In our history, we would rather hope that the
wast of 1913 may see no single mind In Westminster despondent of Its future dc-
-%alopmcrit; may have witnessed the Introduction ot many new measures beneficial to the citizens, the beginnings of which have already been laid; may Bee
tnrUicr advancement made tn muBlcal. literary, military, athletic   circles���to
mention onjua te# ot those Influences which count tor more than concrete and
ijOT im a   clty'�� rife; may witness the complete welding  of a united   people,
worthy to tread in the footsteps of their predecessors on the fraser and deter
to carry on the work that has been entrusted to them.
After Lord Robert's Manchester
ssscech, in which he renewed his call
far compulsory military service in
Britain, the oponents ol compulsory
service at once attacked both the old
noklicr and his cause. Some of them
asserted that the compulsory service
law in Australia and New Zealand was
a failure.
'TJ^ey could not conceive that any
anach "conscript" or liberty-abridging
policy could be a success under the
Union Jack. Yet It we are to believe
the Australian Minister of Defence,
the compulsory training of cadets in
that country has been distinctly a successful venture.
This minister, Senator Pearce, fays
that of the 92,000 cadets liable for
training the government reports show
that 90,000 are now fulfilliuu their ob-
'absaUoiiB In this respect. Of the 17,-
OOO senior I adets eligible to joint the
militia, 16,700 have already done so.
The response of the young Australians to the call of national duty Is as

One laments that the news of the
Tonnntlcn  (if  an   Australian   Freedom
league, to combat the military service
idea, is not cabled around the Km-
mire an eagerly as items relating to
patriotic measures for defence. The
whole substratum of their plaint Is
that to train a population in military
service is to enoouraga war, rather
.than to provide another guarantee of
peace in the shape of effective do-
The Australian scheme contains nothing derogatory to tho dignity of
British citizenship, nor Is it economically wasteful, nor Is It, yet again,
an Instrument to promote war. From

That so few of the Au trallan

the cense and patriotism of the Am-

Although a painter frequently findi
in music a relaxation, tha mu-ociaii
tries his amateur hand ot sketching,
and the poet may amuse himself at
modelling, yet seldom does any one.
of these artists do serious work out,
side his cwn art. For this reason
does Mrs. J. W. F. Harrison hold a
distinct place among Canadian artists.
for she is musician and musical composer, poet arrl novelist. Ue.-id"��
these, the lady has appeared on the
platform, her recital lecture on "The
Music of French Canada" having til in
great advantage, that the speaker can
herself illustrate every phase of her
subject as she traces the folk mini

French peasant of Canada, liefnri
Horatio Walker bad discovered the
picturesquesness ol these Arcadians,
M:3. Harriso . had heard the tilt of
their "chansons," had echoed them in
her poetry and set them to music.
She had been keenly appreciative cl
the simplicity and dignity of the habitant, and c( the courtliness and pride
of the seigneurs, the last of a mediaeval feudal system that is so strange
a contradiction in our times.
These impressions found expression
in essays and short stories, but nv.st
adequately perbapi in her poetry, a

the name, "Pine, Rose, and Fleur de

which appeared in different publications, other contributions appearing
in Chicago. Philadelphia, and Toronto

n-nme strange tn say, much more familiar to England and American readers than Canadian.
In those earlier writings Mrs, Harrison secured an apprenticeship for her
important novel, "The Forest ot
Bourg Marie,'' which is a distinct
revelation of power and mastery of
material. It was a sympathetic study
of patriarchal life among the French-
Canadians, the solvent point ol the
situation grasped with artistic thrill,
the plot enthralling in spite of the
fact that it has no love "motif," no
portrait of a woman.
A Canadian by birth, of British descent, Mrs. Harrison spent Uie impressionable year- of her girlhood at
school in Lower Canada, as it was
then called. She claims that, gnitiif
there from the more English Ontario,
she was much more impressed by tba
French character and the historic setting and quaint surroundings than if
she had always been familiar with
them. Her musical education berfaii
eariy, and was continued along with
her other studies. She later studied
abroad under Beseovitz, becoming a
pianist of such ability as to take part
in ensemble duets with Jebin Prume,
has appeared in Montreal as accompanist to Max Heinricb, Winch, and
other solo vocalists, and was also lor
a time contralto solol-t In OUawa fn

Dry Cleaning the Hair.
Dry cleaning the hair has become so
much a part of the toilet that ninny

they ever managed to worry ulong be

after the wet shampoo. A grent niony

the hair to fall oat In great quantities.
As a rule, no amount of washing will
Injure either the scalp or the hair any
more tlmn It Injures the face, providing, of course, that the purest of soap
Is combined with strictly soft wafer,
the scnlp and bnlr are rinsed thoroughly nntll not a vestige of the soap remains, and a softening lotion or tonic
Is applied to the scalp Immediately
afterward. This tonic has the same
effect upon the scnlp as an application
of n skin food has on the face nrter
a soap and water bath, and Is equally
as Important If the hair is to be kept
in good condition.
It la not enough to npply (be tonic,
but It must be well massaged Into the
scalp with the tips of the lingers In
order that every |K>re may be nourish

brushing to bring out (be sheen of the

Is essential.
To cleanse the hair thoroughly It
should be brushed successively trout

scalp. Between each stroke, dust aud

dandruff, should lie removed from the
brush so as not to communicate them

necessary to use a clean brush a half

that If you bnre more than one brush
you can leave one to dry while the

tbe brush each time It Is run through
tbe hair, afterward wiping the comb

On the Sunday when Their T.nyal
Highnesses, the Duke and Duchess of
ConiiBugbt and Princess Patricia were
in Victoria. B.C.. in September, the
duke and the princess attended the
morning service at Christ Church
Cathedral, and, upon leaving, Princess Patrici* promised Dean Doull
that she would return in the afternoon
���ud take one ot the classes in the
Sunday school. She did so, and was
-liven charge of a class of young girls
from six years upwards. The topic
was the first verse of Hymn 417 of the
Hyin Bonk, well known to all English Chur:h people by its first line,
"Brightest and best of the sons of the
morning," There are four lines tn
the first verse of the hymn, the last
one reading "Guide where our infant
Redeemer is laid.''
Princess Patricia managed to secure
answers from the children as to the
meaning of the first three lines of tbe
verse, but when she asked what was
the meaning of tbe words, "Our infant
Redeemer,' there was an nhinluU silence on the part of the pupils.
"Jureiy." sa,d the prince*?, "some
of you know what these words mean. '
"Yes," came tbe answer from tm>t
of the children. "I know, it means
our Bishop."
And it is said that Princess Patricia
is telling the story herself as an il.us
tuition of the influence of Bishop Kup-
er  in  his diocese.

Pioneer of Pioneers-
William James Armstrong
We we come to one year's end and
[ enter upon another It Is Inevitable
that we should pause a while and look
both backward and forward. We today who are the citizens of New
Westminster are called upon to make
history, to carry on tbe work whose
foundations were laid by men, many
of whom now sleep, some in tbe pioneer grave, some In tbe quiet cemetery, by men, some tew of whom we
are thankful to say, are still with us.
But the milestones of time go
swiftly by and so as we pause today
It may be well it we go.to the oldest
ot the "old-timers" left to us and ask
him to tell of his life and of bow from
tbe virgin forest the city named by
the Great Queen baa sprung to her
present status.
Of all that gallant band of sappers
and miners whose names will ever be
linked to the beginnings of settlement
on the lower mainland, very few still
breathe the air of the land of their
adoption, but in the person of Mr. W.
J. Armstrong we have an earlier pioneer even than they.
He is well known to those who have
lived here during the past twenty
years, even while his name Is more
than familiar, to those who came here
before that time. He has lived during
the reigns ot five British sovereigns
and a little over a year ago celebrated
the fiftieth anniversary of his marriage which took place In Victoria.
Mrs. W. J. Armstrong left her home
in the West ot England, as far back
as 1860 and came out with relatives to
join her two brothers on the Pacific
coast of Canada. Their family has
grown with the years and now num.
hers some fifty descendants and relatives. ���
The blazing glory of the maple wav
studding the forest when there was
born In the little town of Peterborough, Ontario, 86 years ago, last
October, a boy who was destined to
play no little part In tbe upbuilding of
the city he has now called his home
for tbe past 54 years. For on the
Hallowe'en William James Armstrong
first saw the light. Peterborough was
not as famous then as it Is today,
neither were the sanitary arrangements as perfect, and it was doubtless
due in some measure to this that si*
months after his birth the baby was
left without a mother, wbo passed
away during an epidemic of fever.
The widowed father then determined to return to the farm in County
Cavan���he hailed from that Cavan In
Ireland, from wblch the county takes
Its name -and there young Armstrong
was bj/ought up. Institutions of learn
Ing were few and far between In those
days, but at the nearest village school,
one of those which have produced so
many of Canada's great ones, he got
his education.
The story of the "Forty-Nlners" in
California sounds to us like a legend
of history, but to young Armstrong
the I'ar-olf Kldorado had a message,
end so v.a see him next, a well set up
fellow of 25. stepping aboard ship at
New York bound for California via the
Horn. That was in November, 1851.
I'd and down the sierras and valleys
of the land, whose story has been told
by Bret Harte, Mr. Armstrong followed the trades of the frontier for some
six years, until, in July, 1858, he was
Included In the motley throng of intrepid spirits who answered tbe summons ot the then new north, the call
of the Cariboo, of the untouched
treasure house of New Caledonia. He
landed at Victoria and after spending
a few weeks there took ship for the
mainland, bound for Fort Langley.
There was no Westminster in those
days, and, as the little craft threshed
her way slowly past the place where
the waters of the Fraser divide at
Lulu Island, none thought of the spot
as anything more than just part of the
vista of forest, forest, endless forest
through which the river majestically
rolled. There was no sign of life, the
tall trees stretched clear down to the
water's edge, siring place here and
there to clumps ot willow and alder
where tbe shore was marshy. Down
tbe North Arm and over at Coqultlam
there were Indiana, It Is true, but n*
encampment existed on the site of the
future New Westminster, though all
this territory was the bunting ground
of the natives whether for flesh, fur,
fish or succulent berries.
Old Fort Langley stood on the left
or southern bank of the Fraser, 18
miles from here, and Mr. Armstrong,
In common with many others, bought
property In Derby, as It was proposed
to call the place which was then designed to be tbe capital of the mainland colony, for at that time Vancouver Island was �� "P��,rate, c���*nvC0L'
ony. Late lq 1858 Colonel Moody, In
advance of his Royal Engineers, had
arrived on the Fraser snd under Instruction from Sir E. B. Lytton, then
secretary of state for the colonies, was
seeking s better location on the north
bank of the river for the future capital. He decided on tbe site of the
nroscnt city of New Westminster, snd
Mr. Armstrong, seentlng the change
afdretlme, started off downstream in
company with John 8. MacDonald
taking along tools and nails. Ths luck
of tbe brave was with *���
passing the Pitt river
tures made here out of the proceeds of
the former sale, the auction was
broken up and dire threats were forthcoming against those who had diverted money won from this spot to Improve roads upon the Island.
In the life of the embryo city Mr.
Armstrong played a leading part. In
1860 he was a member of the first
council then formed and which consisted of seven councillors, one of
whom was chosen president Today
he Is the only survivor of that band
of city fathers. In 1871 he entered a
wider field of politics, being elected to
the provincial assembly In Victoria, to
wblch tbe capital of the united colonies, since known as British Columbia, had been moved from New Westminster In 1868. There were no parlies in those days, says Mr. Armstrong, and soon be was included in
the ministry, and performed much useful work in opening up the lower
mainland for settlement by driving
roads through the forest. The road
nun Delta to Yale may be cited here
as an InBtance'of this work, while as
n Surrey and over toward Vancouver
he country was thus opened up, settlers began to come in in swelling
Mr. Armstrong sat In the first, second, third and fourth legislative assemblies after confederation. He was
one of the two members representing
New Westminster district In the first
two and sat for the city in the two latter. He was minister of finance and
agriculture In the first assembly and
n the third was provincial secretary,
in 1877 he was compelled to retire
irom the Island climate on account of
acute rheumatism, find In 1884 accepted the position of sheriff in this
ity, in which he continued until 1893.
when his son, tbe present sheriff, succeeded him.
Out of a wealth of anecdote and
reminiscence of the early days Mr
Armstrong speaks of the Christmaset
and New Years of long ago. "We did
not have any special celebration that
I remember," he says, "other than that
we stayed at home and enjoyed bur
selves in tbe good old way.
'1 remember," he went on, "how on
the Queen's birthday, every May 24,
we would gather the Indians togethei
and feast them on boiled plum pud
ding. That took place near the Ca
thedral. We did not not do it every
year, and the last time was some Hi
/ears ago."
Another Interesting memory of Mr
\rmstrong's is connected with thi
���nilitary life of the city. There was t
letachment of militia rifles here ai
the time of the Fenian Raid, but ti
.ugment this he was one of the organizers of the "Home Guards" who te
the number of CO or bo flourished foi
some years here. They were raise*
by authority of Acting Governor Birch,
Governor Seymour being absent In
England, and were trained to arrm
and drilled, ready should the need
arise to defend the city itself from at
tack from over the border.

But Mr. Armstrong was not allowed

"My Business Is \3 xv\que
We are told by the old-time circus men and dime museum operators that good freaks used to command large salaries. Barn-
urn's "dog-faced boy" is said to have drawn $200.00 a week���Yoit
see he was the only dog-faced boy in the world-he was unique-
Most of us-even if we could be freaks-would prefer to make
our livlihood some other way. And, anyway, the "freak" stunt
is about played out���even in the circus business.
It is surprising to find an
otherwise hard-headed business man who takes strange,
abnormal joy as posing as a
freak. He dosen't call it
that, of course. He doesn t
even know he is posing. Ponderously in earnest he would
not dream of describing his
business as "freakish"���but
delights in saying it is

The searchers proved that but little

One of tbe best known scouts ln tbe
business is Arthur Irwin, tbe veteran
talent hunter of tbe New York Americans, and to quote what be said recently seems to sum up the situation tn a
nutshell. "I've combed the bnsb
leagues this year aa never before,"
quoth he, "and never did I see such a
scarcity of southpaws. They are not
to be bad. My experience is the same
ns that of otber scouts wltb whom I
have talked. I cannot account for It
except that left bsnded persons are getting scarcer in all walks of lire, in
my travels this season 1 snw very few
twlrlers of this kind, snd I'll venture
the prediction thst 1013 will see fewer
new southpaws ln the big leagues than
In any season In twenty-live years."

Cie usual tenants' dance t ok place recently, ij a very different place Irnm
i'hat it wan in the reign of the lata

lira a point on it, it presented a

often urged to do so by the late King
Edward. So soon as the late Kim*
came tn the throne he had the wliols

It was his desire to stive an minimi
hall here to the dwellers in Lie surrounding residences, but, for one res.
son or another, this was never carried
into effect, and the tenants' ball is
the only one that now takes place
when the cnuit is In residence at Hal

The Prince of Wales, Prince Alhert
and Princess Mary are each skilled st

were delighted to have an opportunity
of showing their prowess in this direction to the King and Queen the

distinguished sportsman. There are,
to be seen here, for example, a fine

Czar of Russia, and another by the

are here that fell before the rifle of

Canada has a territory 1-rgei th*n
two or three European empires, yet it
doesn't boast five thousand souls.
Forests await the axe, mines the drill,
rich, virgin soil the plowshare. When
these flings come to pass we will
have added to f1'miliar knowledge the
wonderful Peace River country, says
Austin Addison Briggs in T wonto Star

could lie broken to-morruw with no
lurtlier essentials than di'c harrow
and eayuses, only a very small portion ot r>) country has as yet been
surveyed or taken up for settlement.
Most ol tlio so-called homestosdnrs
are squatters. Some of these pioneers,
can date their eYitr'y inti the north
as far back as the seventies; others,
twenty years, and so on. Of all types,
ages, nationalities, in only one respect do they appear to he similar���
every man ot them is �� tighter and
possc.-ses an unwavering lieliel in Hie
potentialities of Hie country.
It requires a measure of courage to
be a tiller of the soil in the Peace River Empire; not that crops are diflieult
to produce���far from it! But isolation
frnm the markets of the world i.i tibso.
lute. As paradoxical as it may seem
to those acquainted with the recoguiz-
ed methods i f merchandizing, the
northland's distribution is inward". At
Fort Vermilion approximately 30.000
bushels of wheat is produced annually. Some of this crop is bartered to
settlers in the neighborhood, but most
of it goes as far north n* tbe Arctic
Circle. At the Fort we find the only
attempt to systematically grow grain
���rii market it at a profit. If it were
not lor tbe Hudson Hay Co. running
s steamer out ol Vermilion, and run-
ning a Hour mill at the same plice,
ov,.' would almost be led to believe
that distributive cause and effect centered around tbe Dominion Experimental Farm, that farthe.-t-mrlli elation in America, where anything and
everything grows with maximum
abundance, Iragrance, and facility.
The mineral wealth of the north.
land is represented mainly ; i coal, oil,
salt, galena, silver and copper. These
sre found scattered over the Peace.
Athabn/ka, Red Deer, Siuinnett;'. Hue,
and Little mid tiig Smoky Kiver-.
Some coal seams have been unearthed
with a depth of ten feet. Most of the
coul is bituminous. Deposit* of as-
phaltum are ioutid on the Lower
AtliahaeVa. while gas and tar wells
, have been discovered both on th j

\ It is generally conceded -that the
days tor tur-trading in the north are
numbered. Still, the liguies for una
year's catch are placed at a million
do.'lars. Most nftfia skins are shipped
to Kugland and France. To-day. bear,
coyote, and moose are plentiful, but
fox, heaver, mink, etc.. are slowly being exterminated or driven beyond tho
roving grounds of trapp-s. J. K.
Cornwall. M.P.P.. of Peace Hiver, has
himself been a fur-trader.
In the lifteen years which have
elapsed since Mr. Cornwall lir-t set
traps and carried pelts over lonely
trails in the dead of night, there lis*
been a marvelous transformation.

The President then read the annual report of the Directors as follows:
"I beg to submit the Annual Report of the Director* and the Front and Loss snd Leneral fatatement
of the Bank covering operations for the past twelve months. ... ��a, o
"On an average paid-up Capitol of $6,498,3.12, there has been earned the sum of 11,338,844.6^.
Adding the balance brought forward from last year, there Is still ��Uii7,722.80 to be disposed of. This haJ
been dealt with as follows;-Ulvldend of It)'/, oo the paid-up Capital, $649,004; written off Bank Premises, $100,000; contributed to the O.Tlcers' Pension Kund, $50,000, and added to Reserve Fund, $4u0,000,
enabling us to carry forward $148,718.27 ln the I-rorit and Loss Account. Your Directors consider this a
favourable showing. '     .        ,
"Our Reserve Fund this year has been further augmented by the premium on new stock (Issued
at 175) amounting to $560,760, bringing It up to $6,410,760, or a fraction o-er 95% of the paid-up Capital.
"During the past year we hove opened   ofhVes at the following points, vii: ���
"In Alberta: Detburne, Alberta Avenue (Edmonton), Hanna, llughendeu, Redclllt, and Walsh; in
Saskatchewan: Battlefcrd; In Ontario: Brantford. Ouelph, and Walkerville; ln Q-icbec: Centre Street
(Montreal) and St. JoTite.
"We have not closed any ngencles.   All the offices of the Hank hove been Inspected A .ring the year.
"During the year ae have lost t��o of our esteemed Directors, one by death and one by retirement.
���Mr. Charles M, Hays, whose death we greatly deplored and whose loss was national, and. Inter on
In the year, our valued colhUkgu*, Mr. Jonathan Hodgson, resigned, on account of advanced age. Mr.
Hodgson has served on the Board of this Bank for over thirty-five years, and his advice at the Board*
councils was very highly esteemed. During the laal ten years he was our Vice-President We hope Mr.
Hodgson, In retirement, may enjoy many years yet of health and happiness.
"These vacancies on tl.e Board have been lilied by the appointment of McsBrs. Andrew J. Dnwea
and F. Howard Wilson.
"Your Directors and the General Manager have had under consideration for some time tho advisability of asking your permission to change the termination of the financial year from the 30th November to the 30th April, as the general conditions In this country, in the Spring, are not bo congested us
ln the Autumn, when the pressure on the resources of Canadian Banks is at Its height. With lull end In
view, an amendment to the By-Law will be submitted for your consideration, changing the end of the financial year to the 3i)th April, and changing the date of tbe Annua! Meetiug from the third Wednesday
ln the month of December to the bhird Wednesday in the month of May.
"The Board of Directors of tbe Bank has hitherto consisted of nine members, and we have decide*
to ask you to Increase the number to twelve. The necessary change In the By-Law will be submitted to
you for your assent.
"Anoiher By-Law Increasing the amount of the Directors' rimuncration to $25,000 per annum, will
also be submitted to you.
"Supplementing this report, I would like to say 1 visited most of the Western Brandies during
the past summer, (ucompaiiled by the Vice-President ar.d Mr. Long, where we acquired a great deal of
additional informal ion bearing upon our business and met a gn��t many of the customers of the Bank
and the staff. I may say thai tbe trip was full of Icslructlon and we returned with a very much better

That Canada herself is, in a great
measure, to blame lor an utirulineiM
among Italians in this country, and
that under conditions to which they
have been accustomed in their native
land, his fellow-countrymen would
prove law-abiding Canadian citizens,
wsi tbe pith of the startling statement made hy the Marquis Carlo Du-
rszxo, Italian Conaul-Genersl to
Canada, recently.
The marquis has just returned to
Montreal alter a prolonged visit to
the Pscific coast, during which lie
visited all of tho r<re important cities and towt., where Italian coloniea
are located. In visiting the Italian
colonies in Toronto, the western Ob-
terio cities. Port Arthur, Fort Wil-
li-u, Winnipeg, Edmonton, Calgary,
Saskatoon, Vancouver and Prince
Rupert, he was pleased to tied that
his countrymen seem satisfied with
their surroundings, and expressed his
approval of prevailing conditions on
the works in when, the Italians are
engaged. For the most part they
seem content with their pay, and their
consul expects that the authorities
will receive little or no trouble from
these men during the coming waiter.
The difficulty in handling these
men, it appears, lies chiefly in the fact
tbat in their homeland they have
been used to strict police survoillanoe,
for over there the authorities in power use somewhat stern measures in
keeping the poorer classes down, and
so guarding against the political upheavals which occur lrtm time to
time. The Italians who are dissatisfied with their lot at home, hearing
of the freedom of the lands beyond
the seas, become embued with tbe
idea that they can come over her*
and practically do as they please.
These ideas are often circulated
around among these simple folk by
means of literature, which unhappily,
is very often much exaggerated and
consequently their quick spirits are
aroused to seek this new home ucross
the water, where there is employment
for all and where one may do that
which suits his own ideas best.
Once in Canada, the Italian often
starts in to follow this plan mentioned. He has been bottled up all
his life by the authorities in his own
country, and when he once finds
himself a freer man. though hy no
means as free as the information
folder* that he lead beck in Italy
would imply, he goes so far as to
abuse the privileges as are granted
him in our country. He can hardly
he blamed for this, however, under
the prevailing conditions.  "
Still do not think that al] our Italian immigrants are of this stock. By
no means! the majority are a peace-
loving people, who are only too glad
to be   rile  to  live _in   a  quiet  and
my heart.
