T.- Blues  of Abbotsford tendered a banquet^ to  Mr. and Mrs. D/Campbell who .just  returned from the South cities, where  ' they spent their honeymoon.  The room, in honor of the-occasion,  was gaily feestooned and the tables  laden with dainties were very artistically arranged.    ' ' '    ���������   -���������  At about 8:30 the bridal party,  Mr. and Mrs. D. Campbell and their  attendants, Miss Maggie Robb, Matsqui, and Mr. Oscar Hicks,' arrived-.  The bride was charmingly gowned  in white, the dress having- satin trimmings, the effect of which ,was carried out by the satin, rose and band  in'the hair. The- bridesmaid, Miss  Robb, wore''a satin gown of the old  rose color effect.  They were received ��������� by Mrs. Emory, the Worshipful Mistress of the  Lodge, who conducted them in state  to the centre table over which presided Mrs. Hicks, mother of the bride,  and Mr. Gamble ,of Matsqui, who was  toastmaster of the evening. They, being seated, Mrs. Emory and Mrs. Irving took the heads of the other two  tables and about sixty members were  seated to do justice to'the rich repast. This being accomplished, Mr.  ���������Gamble proposed "The King" and all  having shown their loyalty he next  proposed the toast to "The Bride and  Groom" to which" the happy groom  replied in most felicitous and: happy manner. After that the hall resounded with elo.qiie'ncy and hilarity  as the toasts "Tlie Loyal True Blue  Association," "The Orange Association," Canada and the Empire," and  "The Ladies" were proposed andre-  sponded to.    Mr. Gamble himself re  plied to the toast "Canada and the  Empire" in a^ way' which delighted  the company, while Mr. Wooler and  Mr. Jim Gamble vied" with each oth'ejr  to do most honor to the ladies.  Then came the crowning event of  the evening when on behalf af the  New Era Lodge of Abbotsford Mr.  Gamble read an address, beautifully painted in the colors of the lodge  on satin, which expressed the good  will, of the members toward Mr. and  Mrs. Campbell and the high esteem  in which they were held, and Mrs.  Emory presented them 'with a beautiful chair. Mr. Campbell feelingly responded and on behalf., of himself  and his wife thanked the. members  for- their good will and wishes and  the kindly way in which they had  expressed them.'  Then came the ceremony of the  cutting - of the bride's cake, during  the interval" of which Mr. Wooler  favored the company with songs.  Votes of thanks were tendered Mr.  Gamble who acted so ably as toast-  master, and those who had worked  oh the banquet committee, after  which the banquet broke up with  the.singing of Auld Lang Syne and  the room having been cleared, the  company enjoyed dancing till the  wee sma' hours o' the marnin.'

His farewell message to the  people of Canada is given in his last  words in. the senate in concluding his  speech on the address in reply to the  speech from the throne on January  22. The physical effort of which  speech, delivered in an overheated  chamber, had something to do with  the illness which Immediately followed, and which resulted in his death.  His last words were:  "Now. let us apply our energy to  the great problems that lie before us  .Th, my politics, whether I am  here or elsewhere. Canada has to  confront tremendous problems. We  are on the margin of a future which  no one can predict. We have a  country as large as the continent of  Europe: Lord Strathcoha has predicted that we will have twenty or thir-  sure. TheMousseau scandal at Quebec, the Evanturel affair in the Ontario Legislature, Mr.,Hanna's unhappy method of collecting political contributions as revealed, last, year, and  Hon. Robert Rogers' cynical defence  of the gift of a valuable piece of urban' land to a Prince Albert friend,  under the guise of a 'homestead' all  indicate the tendency of the times.  After mentioing the Trent canal  and7 New Brunswick scandals, the  Globe says: ,"  "Here are two concrete examples  one to the discredit of a Liberal administration, the other to the discredit of the present Conservative government���������of the loose political morals  that obtain in Canada., Unless public life is to become absolutely rotten  we must clean house, not in a spirit  of.partizan recrimination, of setting  Tory sins against Liberal offences,  but with a sincre desire to raise moral tone of public life, and to e'stab-  ty millions of a population within,the ' lish  the  right  principle  that  public  next ten years.    We are the forerun  ners of a tremendous destiny, which  should.weigh on the minds of every  one of us.

And, in whatever respect leg-  ' islation  is necessary  for  stre'nthen-  ing the  institution  in this  country,  'for assimilating our' foreign population,  for  furnishing, suitable tr,ans-  ���������  portation, for    deepening    our harbours, for strengthening the ties bet-  ��������� ween us and the Empire, for extend-  ��������� ing our commerce on the seven seas,  for  standing  as  prominently  as  we  '��������� ought to stand before the nations of  the   world   as   a   great   commercial  people thoroughly independent, lean-  . ing on no arm of assistance, not, even the arm of the Empire, let us work  out our destiny in our", own way.

To that task, this senate, I  hope, is willing to address itself, as  is the house of commons, or any political body In the Dominion of Canada."  office must be a public trust alike to  the parliamentarian and to the official who serves the people in executive capacity."  CANADA AND PEACE  A large section of the reading public professes to entertain a contempt  for the literary value of .the Calgary  . ��������� Eye-Opener, says an exchange, which  , is not borne out by "the facts, as the  same paper has probably a wider circulation of readers than most papers  in Canada, and while this paper has  no admiration .for much that appears  from   the   pen   of   "Bob   Edwards-"  (who'is not losing any sleep on that  account) it is with some degree of satisfaction we note its attitude respecting the frequent demands of the C.  N.  R. on the Canadian government  for subsidies.    Ever since these twin  . railway knights���������Bill and Dan���������having been attempting to deplete the  exchequer of the dominion, the Eye-  Opener,  whose  editor  probably has  his ear as close to the ground as any  one in the same business in Canada  has been unsparing in its criticism of  the Borden" Government in  this respect.  Ih a Tecent issue of the Eye-Open-  ' er the following characteristic story  ,is related, which needs neither apol-  " ogy nor application, and is so plain  that he who runs may read.  "Are Bill and Dan really being allowed to steal the taxpayers' millions  ��������� It may not be very polite, or judicious  to say so outright but, were we in  Dr. Evans Darby's Tour    ���������  The Rev. Dr. W. Evans Darby, Lon  don, England, Secretary for'35 years  of the    Peace   Association,    recently  had a remarkably successful tour in  Western   Canada���������a   Peace   Mission.  '"The tour," Dr. Darby told a journalist followd on the opening of the  Peace Palace at the Hague, and many  circumstancs,   inc.uding     utterances  of  Cabn'et ministers,  had impressed  the public mind.    These and also the  long pressure put on Canadian loyalty from  the Motherland,  all helped  to prepare the way.".  "What did your journey cover?"  asked the pressman. "j  ."A six days crossing to Quebec by  the C. P. R. 'Empress of India' an  almost unbroken, journey by the Canadian Pacific Railway right across to  Victoria, B. C, a strenuous round of  remarkable meetings on the return  Eastward, a call at three or four  points in the East, and a second cross  ing homeward, the whole occupying  four months, and covering "14,000  miles���������5,830 by sea and'over 8,200  by land." '  "And you had an active time?"  "I gave over eighty addresses, before many thousands of Canadians;���������  addresses of various types, but all on  the one great topic of International  peace, includinga special development: a Peace Policy for Canada."  "How was the Peace question received?"  "Most cordially, I found much enthusiasm,   marked   earnestness,   and  and practical unanimity against aggressive naval policy.and militarism.  It is indeed doub������f ul whether Canada  will ever build warships, for Canad  ian opinion is rapidly moving again'  st the policy of both political parties  "There" was only one note of dissi-  dence���������at Edmonton.      At the Can-  in leading articles and full reports.  The'press throughout was most cordial, and did full justice to the tour  and its object."  "Were"any resolutions passed?"  "Yes, at many meetings.1 The typical one;was the one at Winnipeg."  "That in the opinion of this meeting, Canada, being free from International difficulties/ should.���������ldevote  her.energies to the Arts o.f Peace and  the attainment of social and economic jqstice, and in so doing, can without embarrassment,, set such an example as will enable her to take the  lead among the nations as an advocate of International Peace and Arbitration; therefore, we recommend  that a generous portion of the money  it is proposed to spend in armaments  under either Conservative or Liberal  policies, be diverted to prosecuting an  international educational propaganda  for Peace and Arbitration; and that  a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Right Honourable Robe.  Laird Borden, and to the Right Honorable Sir Wilfrid Laurier."  "You found the-Canadian Clubs  interested.  "Very, in nearly every place. The  President of Vancouver, Rev. J. Mac-  kay, D. D.,'who is also president of  the Federation of Canadian Clubs,  told me he would .make- Peace the  main subject of his year of office."  "You know there has been,some  press criticism of a Peace policy."  "Yes, in one instance. , But here is  a pregnant fact, which - shows the  trend of opinion."  s "The Grain Growers' Guide at Winnipeg took up the Peace question prominently, and included it in a list of  its readers. Tlie question put. was:  "Do you believe that Canada, instead of spending millions for Naval  Armaments (either British' or Canadian) should devote her energies  and spend her millions, If necessary,  towards the establishment of Universal Peace and Disarmament, and the  settlement of International disputes  by Arbitration.".  "In the result 6,403 men-and women voted���������6,050. Yes and only '353  No. A very remarkable result. ���������  "I was." concluded Dr. Darby,  interested in, and impressed by the  wonderful Canadian scenery the rich  prairies. of" Manitoba,   Saskatchewan  MISSION CITY HAS  BENEFIT CONCERT  (From   Fraser   Valley. Record)  IT was'a full house that greeted  the performers who gave their ser-'  vices free for the purpose of raising  funds for the street lights of Mission  City. The audience was well repaid  for their attendance at the concert  which was given in the,Imperial Hall  on Tuesday evening,of' this week. '  Many were heard to say that it was  one of the best musical treats over  given in the town. ���������  In conversation' with the president  of the board of trade Mr. F. A. Ver-  chere, who is also the chairman of  the light committee ho" stated that  about $40 was the result of the evenings entertainment,'clear, of all expenses. It seems that the committeo  made a mistake in charging only 25  cents as they gave an entertainment  that was well worth 50 cents.  The committeo wish this paper to  thank all who so kindly rendered  their services free and also the town  people for turning-out so well.
