The stage setting was most excellently arranged with Canadian  Irish and American flags, giving  a finishing touch to the whole  scene which^was a sure cure for  sore eyes. The murmuring and the  smiles of approval o,f the audience  when their smi,es first met this  "catchy" scene was a show in itself to an onlooker and spoke volf  umes. The first part of the programme consisted of songs and  choruses which with a vim and1 in  manner which showed carelul train  ing and preparation. The solos and  songs rendered were given as foh  lows: "Under Douthern Skies" by  Mr. E. Barret, found the singer  in excellent, voice but then you  know "Teddy" has been there before.

Clarke  of Sumas, Wash., who chose as his  selection" "Simple Confession" to  which1 he was compelled to respond to  an encore. This artist not only has  the technique but the soul which is  very-necessary in order to be able to  sway his audience in the manner he  did: Th'e next, number was a character  song and dance by Mr. Blair, who ��������� is  the proud possessor of a voice, which  is   very     taking and he  at once  certainly took the audience with him  His foot work, for a man of his avoir  dupois was simply excellent and had  everybody going up and doW.n on  their toes.  t  A    sketch entitled "Justice Up     To  Date"  concluded the performance.

ASK  JNDMENTS  ���������' TO MUNICIPAL ACT  (CoiJ.inued from.'Page One)-  That councils be given power to establish building lines ���������-, on streets- subject t'o appeals being taken to the I'ieu-  tontini-goyernor-in-cbuncil. '  That in view of tho zone system a-  doptedby the B. C. Telephone,. Company and the charges thereunder entail  ing very heavy, rates, the government  be asked to'appoint a commission to  investigate all telephone company char  ges .with a view if possible, of having  them brought w.ilJiii'i tho limits found  to lie reasonable."  The   executive  brought  forward      a  number of desired   amendments    covering subdivision legislation  plans  to  be  approved by the municipal   council who  should liavo power lo say wh'ere    roads  should'bo placed 'subject  to  an  appeal  (o the lieuUenant-goyernor-in      council.  Further that, no   land  sub-divisions   be  accepted by   the government until   ap-  pi oved by the council    of the municipal iiy affected.  Other  Recommendations were:  Thut   municipalities be given   a portion of the auto license    .fees for     the  upkeep of the roads. '  That thd government license fee for  the use of Water powers be .made nominal in the case of municipal districts.  That .municipalities be permitted to  invest their sinking funds in the debentures of other districts in the province.  That ijhe B. C. government take  steps to secure representation on the  Dominion commission to make inquiry  into tlie managements of prisons thro'  o-.i Canada.  That   amendments be introduced    in  the laws of-thc dominion-and this pro-  viirce providing  .for some   satisfactory'  way in maintaining the Vivos  and thc  children  of persons who - desert      their  families, persons being able'to work do  not do so, persons who. lrom  the drink  habit  dissipate their money.

The deputation was against the a-  mendment to the new Municipal Act  pi oviding that municipalities pay for  the keep of prisoners who might- be  fined. "    ���������  Thc- proposed bill relating to irrigation 'companies and the formation of  water municipalities was praised.
