FIREMEN HAD
SUCCESSFUL BALL
LAlMiE  ATTENDANCE   AT   FIRST
DANCE GIVEN BY   THI':
DEPARTMENT.
The .Members of the Force Had Gone
lo a Lol of Trouble Decorating
the Hull for Occasion.
The ball given last evening by the
firemen was a signal success. There
was a large attendance and everything iu connection with the event
was on the most approved plan. The
members of the force had put in a
lot of hard work decorating for the
occasion and probably never before
was St. Andrew's Hall more elaborately decorated.
Colored lights were introduced in
the scheme, while there was a profusion of flags used, many of them
brought from the outside for the
event. Around the walls evergreens |
were massed and the whole effect of
tne decorations was on a grand
scale.
The Department, even in their
pleasure, were not allowed to forget
their duty in the protection of the
city. They were "on duty" throughout the whole time of the dance. In
fact, the headquarters of the department was for the time being transferred from the Fire Hall to St. Andrew's Hall.
Just before the hour of opening
the ball Fire Auto No. 2 with the
members of the brigade rolled along
the streets and took up its position
just in front of the ball-room. There
It remained throughout the time of
the dance, ready for action in any
part of the city in case an alarm
came. Chief McDonald, iu uniform,
and the other members of the fire
fighting force graced the ball, but
their ears were alert at all times for
the call of duty.
The citizens turned out in large
numbers for the ball and a most
pleasant evening was spent. Refreshments were served about    midnight.
Fuii' Association Report,
The annual report of the Northern
British Columbia Agricultural and
Industrial Association has been printed and is being distributed. It contains all the annual reports as well
as the financial statement. The report is a highly gratifying one and
the organization is in good shape for
the present  season.
Keep  your eye on  Port  Edward.
The announcement in The Journal
a few days ago that the Welsh coal
magnate, ]). A. Thomas, M.P., was
preparing to construct a railroad
through Northern British Columbia
has aroused great interest locally,
for it is believed the line will serve
to great advantage in bringing into
use the known vast mineral deposits and also placing the arable
valleys of the northern section witn-
in the reach  of the settler,
D. A. Thomas is the largest individual coal operator in the world
and his coal fields in Wales, in the
Rhondda Valley, Glamorganshire,
and the western valleys of Monmouthshire, last, year exported more
coal than the whole of Canada.
Mr. Thomas was in Vancouver last
summer accompanied by other eminent Welshmen, and he was so impressed by the possibilities .afforded
by British Columbia that he became
interested in this scheme lor a northern road.
The Pacific Coast terminal as
now proposed will be at a point
fifty miles north of Prince Rupert,
and the line will proceed up the
Naas Valley to the Groundhog coal
deposits, thence across the divide
by the old Hogan Pass, which offers a grade of less than one per
cent. The valleys of the Findlay and
Parsnip rivers may also be opened
up, and then the line follows the
Peace River, crossing at Vermilion,
and so on to Prince Albert, where
the eastern terminal will be established.
The road will be 1600 miles long,
and will be capitalized at $15,000,-
000, The promoters will leave Canada for Wales in a week or two to
confer with Mr. Thomas and organization will take place immediately.

IS BEING  DONE HERE.

He Has the Greatest Faith In
the Place.
REFORMING OF

DISCUSSED.
Bishops of Church of England Look
With Favor on the
Change.
;. :!.!--:i Pel). -H —The omission of
the word obey" from the marriage
service of the Church of England
appeared to find considerable support among the bishops attending
the house convocation for the province of Canterbury now- In session
in London. The formal notice lo
omit the word which the Bishop of
Lincoln had given notice of was
withdrawn, however, no vote being
taken on It.
The Bishop gave as his reason for
this thai, he thought it unlikely that
it would carry by a very large majority. The house was In favor of
tho proposed alteration.
The following from the Pentlcton
Herald shows that Prince Rupert's
citizens are loyal to the city:
It Is always gratifying to find that
our city makes a favorable Impression on those who come from other
parts of the country. A recent visitor
to Pentiction was Aid. L. Bullock-
Webster of Prince Rupert, who, In
conversation with a representative
of the Herald, expressed his pleasure at being again in this most
beautiful part of the Okiinagan. The
whole atmosphere of the place seems
to invite the tired worker from
other parls. The climate is perfect.
The town has excellent accommodation and first-class stores. A stranger
meets with hospitality and kindness
on every hand. Indeed, the Inscription over tiie wharf, "Welcome,"
strikes the keynote of the municipal
attitude. Mr. Bullock-Webster, who
first came to Pentlcton in the early
part of 1901, takes a keen interest
In the growth and prosperity of the
place. He is anxious to see Prince
Rupert and the other northern
towns buying their fruit from the
Okanagan instead of from the States.
Having spent the last four years in
Prince Rupert, where he was elected
an alderman at the head of the polls
In 1912, and re-elected in 1913, he
Is well informed on municipal matters and realizes the difficulties
which must be overcome before a
town such as Pentlcton can have the
excellent water and lighting system,
telephones and cement sidewalks
which  exist.     The latter    especially

of the province. As a result those

OFFICER GETS
DAMAGES
SYSTEM OF   CONFIDENTIAL   RE
PORTS ON ARMY MEN IS
CONDEMNED.
Judge on  Bench Severely   Criticises
Practice Thai  Is Followed in
This Way.
London, Feb. 20.—The British
War Office has a system of confidential reports in which, it is staled,
oflicers of the army are condemned
or sentenced to professional ruin
without being heard In their own
defence. This system was severely
censured by the judge of the King's
Bench Court and Hie jury, who
awarded .'o Major W. A, Adam
$1,000 damages against Sir Edward
nard.
In the capacity of a permanent
secretary of war Major Adam distinguished himself at the siege of
Ladysmitii. After that he was employed ou a special service to Japan.
e brought suit for libel against
Sir Edward because of a letter written and published by him stating
that Adam had retired from the
army because of adverse reports. The
letter was written in consequence
of an attack made by Adams when
he was a member of the House of
Commons on the late General Scobel,
who made adverse reports.

Benton, a Britisli subject, who disappeared in Juarez on Tuesday night,
has met death al  the hands    of the
Mexican     rebels,  according  to    the
news brought to his sister, Miss Benton, by T. D. Edwards, the American I HARBISON W. ROGERS MAs PRE-
consul   at  Juarez.   Benton  was  tried;     PARED SPECIFICATIONS FOR

of complicity in a plot to take Villa's ■	
life, and was executed by a firing
squad on Wednesday night. This
is the word brought here.
Villa's act is stigmatized by Benton's numerous friends as wanton
murder. No single act has so stirred
the indignation of the people during
the revolution as this one, with the
probable exception of the Cumbre
Tunnel   disaster.
Instructions were sent by the
State Department from Washington
to Consul Edwards to see that no
harm came to Benton. The instructions   were   sent   at   the   request  of

SEEMS TO BE A JUDGE.
Mr, Von Rhys, judging from his
remarks ui the Liberal meeting
Thursday evening has deserted the
field of mining and is devoting himself to the judging of road bosses.
He says -he qualification necessary

Rhys seems to feel confident of his
ability as a judge.
A MERE NOTHING.
Tiie Liberal organ attempts to
make light of the fad that $40,-
000,000 was wasted by the Liberal
government of Sir Wilfrid Lnurier
in the carrying out of the government section of the National Transcontinental, its code of political
morals would seem to indicate that
it believes Ihe people should be very
thankful that it w-as not $80,000,-
000 that was wasted instead of half
that.

Upon the arrival of the Algerine
at the Southern California port, Captain Corbetl will confer with Commander Waller of the Shearwater
mid by thai time orders will be on

concerning the future movements of

Const, mid only recently returned
to San Diego, which is apparently
the base of operations. Although it
was firsi In tended thai one of the
sloops would proceed south as far as
Valparaiso, Ihe .Mexican crisis
brought about a complete change
of the itinerary, and it is now understood that Ihe two British vessels
will remain off the Mexican Coast
to guarantee Hie protection of British
interests.
Providing the situation on the
Pacific seaboard of Mexico does
not warrant the deteution of the
two war vessels, it is highly probable that the Shearwater will be back
at   Esquimau  early  in   March.
Prior to his departure, Captain

SCHOOL REFORMS
IN BRITAIN
SOME SUGGESTIONS  i HAT   SAVE
BEEN MADE l»  THE
I'OMMIS...^...
Practical  Education Is Urged   Upon
the Public in Ihe
Matter.
Signs are multiplying that Great
Britain will, in the near future, recast her system of education in the
public schools. The lines thai have
been suggested as those she should
follow in drawing up a new programme are of Interest here, for we
notice among the proposals which
are advanced some ilint are very
much akin to the recommendations
made by Commissioner Dean in his
recent report to the minister of education In this province, says the Vic-
ioi in Colonist. Au organization
known ns the Union Social Reform
Committee recently appointed a subcommittee to make an investigation
of what was needed in tlie way of
educational reform in Ureal Britain,
and its report, which lias been issued after Inquiries extending over
six months, bus received the approval
of the main committee. Briefly summarized,  its  recommendations are:
Compulsory continuation classes
until the pupil reaches the age of
li.
special instruction In manual,
agricultural and other technical subjects.
Compulsory feeding and medical
treatment, of children where necessary.
Substantial increases in the salaries and opportunities of advancement open lo the scholastic profession.
The establishment of equal facilities for special religious instruction
for the'children of all-classes in the
public schools.
All religious teachings to be given
in school hours and by members of
the school staff.
The introduction to the report
from which we have culled the foregoing recommendations is written by
Mr. F. E. Smith, who makes a powerful appeal for an unbiased examination of the present educational
system in Great Britain. We quote a
summary of tin's preface as it appears in The London. Standard:
Mr. Smith points out that the
views of the early seventies in regard to education nre not those of
the presenl day. The Men al perfect
citizens could be produced by teaching children the three "It's" and
then costing them on the world at
any   age   from   11   loll proved
a failure. We spend £28,000,000 annually In practising this obvious
absurdity. At the most critical period
of a child's life lie loses the sympathy and supervision of his old
teachers. From ibis fact has grown
up the evil of "blind-alley employment." Continuation classes would
enable the education authorities to
, ep an .-' e on their old pupils, and,
by means of the Lai a • E lianges
and other Institutions guide thi i
into suitable methods of i inplo; -
ment.    Cot   Inn ' ould

at a somewhat low and uniform rate
of salary, whereas the real need of
the nation is a body of teachers
drawn from every .-lass of it, and

finest that could be seen; proving
the wonderfully productive nature of
the soil, and disproving the notion
lh.li it is loo cold for that class of

knowing what the Okanagan can

The    Forests  of  British    Columbia
Should  Not  Become Less l!e-
muiierative Than Now.
Speaking of the new timber regulations the News-Advertiser deals
with the subject of forest preservation and reforestratlon as follows:
"The idea that the royalty on
lumber should vary with the prices
seems to be reasonable and equitable.
Assuming that the people retain the
'ownership or the forest the profit
I sharing scale implies a partnership
I between the owner of the estate and
| the occupant. Mr. Ross explains that
i.the lumbermen made little or no
profits last year. The business may
bo said to have been conducted for
the benefit of the workmen engaged,
the provincial revenues, and the consumers of lumber. Of course this
was the benevolent result rattier than
the purpose of the operators, who
have made a great deal of money In
other years, and expect to do go in
the future. The minister is naturally
..in el-lied to obtain lor ihe prov-
iii' i' ihe lull value of the owner's
interest, and also lo protect the
property as n permanent asset both
us ii source of revenue mid as the
basis of ii great provincial Industry.
- The lumber business or British
Columbia and of Canada should
1" less Importanl und productive than it is now As n people we
are only beginning lo realize! that
Ihe forest Is not an enemy lo civil-
... inn which must be destroyed by
advancing settlement. Early genera-
lions on ihis contlnnent never
thoughl ol' tiie forest as a permanent asset, but only as an obstacle
to the future farmer. As n consequence or ibis misconception a large
part or Eastern Canada and the

lands that are not. suitable for cultivation, but may again grow timber."
