C. last October voted  not for prohibition but for freedom  and you have given them a 1021  edition of the British Columbia prohibition act.  "You have legalized drinking in  bedrooms of hotels. You have deprived the working man of his glass  of beer. Prohibition has manufactured whisky drinkers and vou have  put a premium on whisky drink in.e.

Following a    meeting    by the  committee on Thursday morning, Mr.  M.  A.  MacDonald,  chairman  of  th<"  committee, submitted a report at the  optometry bill, which, however, will  be somowhat modified  from the original  draft.  Chief  of  these  modifications is that the board of examin i  ers shall include one oculist, and that  the examination shall be made broad  enough to Include the useof the op-  thalmascope, so that the optometrists  shall be instructed to detect the appearance  of  disease   from  the   eyes.  Tlie  bill  will  be along the  lines of  the Optometry Act of Ontario.  In respect to,chiropractors, drug-  less healers, food scientists and healers of other kinds, the committee decided that before they are allowed  to have any privileges they must pass  tho medical qualification test imposed by the povinco.  The drugless healers were asking  for a bill whereu'nder each cult  would be permitted to conduct its  own tests.

They ran like sixty through corn and hay  Flying- clear over things in' their way.  The M.

'HE mild and equable all-  the-year-round climate of  Victoria' on Vancouver Island���������a climate which is.  bringing so many Canadians and  Americana to the beautiful Empress Hotel���������is demonstrated most  convincingly by the record of the  thermometer. According to figures supplied by the meteorological  office of the Dominion Government  the lowest point reached during  the yoar 1920 was 25 degrees Fahrenheit in the month of January,  while in only one month, namely.  July, was any higher point reached  than 84 degrees. The mean in the  Wteat summer month of August  was 61 degrees while the  mean over the whole  year was 50 degree;?.  The winter months of  January and February  show mean temperatures  of 39 and 42, although  temperatures in both months were  recorded as high as 53 degrees.  No wonder that the grass is always green and that Spring comes,  early in this equable and delightful climate.
