Mission opened lhe scoring a few  seconds after the first whistle when  Uird registered from (he initial rush.  The ball was soon centred again and  Ibis time Chilliwack had tbe break  and tallied their one and only goal  from a tricky rainbow shot. Mission  was soon in the lead again when R.  Cox beat the Chilliwack goalie by a  clear shot  in  (.he corner.  Half time found Misison one up,  and with every chance to increase,  which 1.). Galliford soon did after  play was  renewed.  Following this the play was Mission's, but no one seemed anxious to  exert himself so the score remained  3 to 1 to the end.  Chilliwack has a nice field and the  game was very fast until a heavy  shower made the ground rather slippery aud somewhat slowed the play.  Clayburn won their game with  Langley Fort 2 to' 1 which was the  only other game scheduled.

The very fact that all legislation  enacted.in the nanie, of the King, that  the Government is spoken .of .as the  King's Government, and that the  Royal-assent is, required to all legislation passed,:before it becomes law  leads to "a belief in many quarters  that Canadians.do not enjoy all the  rights of self-government: and as full  exercise :of- 'all liberties as do the  people of' the United States or any  other country.  As a matter of fact, King George  V. exercises far less power in Canada than the,President does .in. the  United States! The King in England, or his.representative, the Governor-General in Canada, or.any of  the Provincial Lieutenant-Governors  have the power to dismiss their riiin-  iSifii-s from-office. -But.the President  of ibe United States: has the same  power. In the United States,' however, the people have no remedy except to elect a new President when  the. next election comes around, be  chat time long or short. In Canada  che people must be consulted in a  general election immediately, and, if  .heir verdict is in favor of the dismissed ministers, the Governor-Gen-  eral, or the Lieutenant-Governor, as  Lhe case may be, is. recalled from office.  The. King, or .his .representative, is  obliged.to accept as his ministers and  advisers  those -men  who  are  shown  to haye the.confidence of the.people  through' their election, to;Parliament  or Legislature, arid    who    command  the support.of a majority of all.the  members  in  Parliament  or  Legislature.    The moment, a Ministry loses  the support of such a majority of the  people's elected    representatives,    ii  must resign.and.make way tor a.new  Ministry possessing:such support. In  fhe United States  on the' other hand,  the  President  personally  selects his  own cabinet of ministers,    men    who  may. or may not,' be the choice of the  people, and men who may not command  the  support of a majority  In  Congress.  The Crown is a common tie binding all parts of the British .Empire  together, but the Crown does not,  and cannot, legislate of itsolf, impose taxes, or enforce laws. Thebe  things can only be done by the elected representatives of the people and  the courts of law which those representatives in their wisdom create.

They were met at the shops by  i no officials iu charge of these great  The party wore oscorted through  tho works, spending.over two'hours  Lo inspect only a portion of this  great plant. First they visited the  immense locomotive works and the  organization and details were ex-  ��������� plained. Then they saw the salvage  plant that turns what was formerly  wasted and lost material into a valuable asset. They also inspected  the passenger and freight car works,  the offices, ambulance and dining  halls. Il was a splendid education  in Canad'an industrial development,  and the Senators expressed their astonishment at the size of the works  and their efficient organizaton. They  all agreed that our legislators should  seize every opportunity to familiarize themselves with Canada's industrial life..  The party was present when the  great works closed for noon and i,t  was a wonderful sigfht to see the  thoasands of employees streaming  out of tho works. Some conception  o4 the immensity of this enterprise  can be grasped from the statistics  furnished. The area of the works is  ZOO acres, and number of employees'  B.200 with an annual pay-roll of $12,-  7PO.O00. As distinctive railway shops  J.^8 Angus Works are the largest in  North America, in fact, in the world.  , Wonderful   Efficiency.  Senator Gideon Robertson, Minister oi lAbor, was deeply interested.  lie said of tho visit: "It is eleven  years since I have been hero and  the development is simply amazring.  I am glad I came. I had no appreciation of the immensity of the enterprise. What most impressed me  was the wonderful efficiency of the  employees. I never saw an idle  man and I believe each was striving  to give a fair day's work. I am glad  tho relationship between the company and its employees is of such a  cordial character."  Hon. Hewitt Bosiock also was  deeply interested and appreciative of  this industrial development and said:  ���������'One thinks of thc Canadian Pacific Railway as a great transportation company with representatives  in ail the important centres oE tho  world, but cannot realize until they  vis-it the Angus shops, the amount  of co-ordination and management required to keep the rolling stock, and  thc system generally, up to date and  in an efficient state of repair. Whilst  these shops are the principal shops  of tho railway they are by no means  tho only shops whore repairs arc  made. On entering tho locomotive  building the first thing to attract  tho attention of thc party was thc  bi.'V crane of GO tons transporting  the. cornpicted boiler of an engine to  its place, to bo placed into the bogey  carriage. Wo realized that every  effort had been made to inst-al tho  last machines for handling the material quickly and economically; The  catting of the metal is done by acetylene gas job, the welding by electricity. All through the shops the  machines are worked by compressed  air-wherever.feasible, and the noise  in the locomotive"chop is deafening.  ��������� ���������>      Salvage System.  "One of the most noticeable things  is thc way in which the scrap is  worked up into something useful, fn  i- m 'caso the wheel of the hand  br?ko of a freight car was bel.-.g  marie up'an tho wheel of a wheel-  ' b-irrow.

Bennett, Ontario,  was astonished, at the great industry  built up, and said:  "The visit of the party was most  interesting and profitable. That the  company was building such -mammoth locomotives was the most impressive,, recollection of the trip,  while in quite another direction the  evidences of thorough and business  acumen, in economic management,  were" manifest in the utilization of  what would be considered as scrap  by converting the same, into useful parts" for new work. The' employment of .the great force of  9,000 men, at tbe Angus Shops was  an evidence of the most striking kind  of the part played by the compariy,  not only in the transportation interests of Canada, but in its Industrial life. The party are under deep  obligations Tor Senator White's kindness in giving thorn the trip."  Senator Turriff, Saskatchewan,  said: "I thought I had some conception of the C.P.R. efficiency an<J  magnitude, but no one can properly  understand it until he sees these  works. What impressed me, was tho  fine appearance of the employees. I  never saw'a more intelligent body ol.  men."  Senator John Fisher was equally  appreciative. He was much Impressed with the salvage department "I  now know," he said, "why the C. P.  R Is a success. There Is no waste-  on the system." ��������� j  ���������   , ��������� .  Mr. W. F. Wanklyn, representing  President Beatty, met the party" at  the works and on their return to the  Windsor Street Station Mr. Grant  Hall conveyed to the party the appreciation' of tho company for thai*  would go a long way before seeing a  more active body of men than those  who came off work at noon, largely  due, no doubt, to the provision of  ample athletic grounds and .good ventilation throughout' the works."  Elimination of Wasle.  Senator George Fowler, of New  Brunswick, said : ->  "Personally, I had no idea or tho  magnitude of tho shop--, nor'of  thcsLr perfection from the industrial  standpoint. The pride which I, as  an intense Canadian, have always  taken in having in our country the  greatest transportation system in "the  world was considerably Increased  when this visit convinced ��������� me that  its organization was about as n������r  perfection as thc inherent shortcomings of frail humanity can reach.  The most modern machinery, the  most expert mechanics, with suporb  organization can accomplish wonders, a statement proved by the-work  performed at the Angus Shops. Wc  saw under tlie same roof the' repairs  to an in significant car hinge, and the  building of a magnificent engine such  as Stophcnson in hio greatest visions  never dreamed of, .an engine weighing one hundred and seventy-five  tons and capable-of hauling a train  of loaded cars:o\ 3r a mile in length.  So perfectly has the .automatic principle been developed in many of the  machines in thc works that, they almost seem to be sentient things; and  capable of thc expression of more  intelligent thought than that sometimes exhibited by even a judge upon  the bench. ..'*'���������  "Another feature that, struck me  was the'almost'perfect elimination of  waste. The C.P.R. -management Is.  evidently a strong believer nr the  old  adage that, a penny ?r.vcd Is_ c  l^wau only for all the_i;e;iumcd| penny earned. ^Jo^ototagat*'. 1 *��������� .,__.  ROBERT STEAD'S MOW ROMANCE  Robert  Stead-,  once    of     Calgary,  now if the Civil  Service  iri  Ottawa.  is'today second only to Ralph Connor in popularity as a Canadian romanticist. Like the author of "The  Sky Pilot," he has chosen the west  as his stamping ground - From his  early boyhood he lived in the prairie  country,! and no one. knows all its  manysided life better than he does.'  Out of this adventurous region came  his first Mevejs. "The Bail jumper",  and "The Mvmesteaders". His Inst  novel, "The Cow Puncher,"' is also  wholly western in its atmosphere nnd  action. His r.ew story, "Dennison  Grant.',' sorcalled from the name of  the hero', offers some variation on his  previous novels' in that it shifts from  west.to east, just as its author himself has done.  The opening chapters are laid in the  ranching country of Alberta and describe the tragic rivalry, of the Y. D.  gang and the Grant gang in their  wild contention for the hay rights in  a wild valley in the foothills of the  Rockies. It ��������� was in the - course of  this exciting-melee that Dennison  Grant first came into touch with old  Y. D.'s daughter, the wilful and vicious Zen, the most attractive pf all  Stead's heroines. The story swings  from Alberta to an eastern city,  which has no name but is probably  Toronto,,-then back to Alberta once  more.' The ��������� climax is remarkably  free from conventionality" and will  thrill reader with its" passion and its  unusual dramatic situations. An intensely interesting love story, this ro-  inance is bound to be one of the big  sellers of. the season. It is published by the Musson Book Company of  Toronto.  Alex. S. Duncan.

To Protect Local  Water interests  At the meeting of the Matsqui  council on Saturday Messrs T. Lancaster and A. R'ottluff brought under  notice the matter' of the present position of the company which has a  -franchise in connection with the proposed water-works and supply for  Matsqui village. It was inftmat'ed  that.the council proposed action for  the amending of tho charter. The  deputation pointed out that the company was a local co-operative movement, which had met with difficulty  owing to the outbreak of Avar shortly  etter it was formed- and the resultant sofiring in prices of all material  for such a project. They ajked that  the matter be fllowed to lav over for  a time. They would see to it that  the franchise did not pass into the  hands of anyone seeking but profit.  Reeve McCallum said the council  was advised that the charter was  faulty, and all he desired to do was  to have it so amended, or' a new one  prepared, as to protect local interests  The franchise might pass into the  hands of speculators at some future  time, and work hardship on those it  was desirable to protect.  Coun. Bell thought if the council's  legal adviser could so readily find  flaws in this local charter, they  might with advantage devote some  time to devising means of compelling  the powerful interests which controlled the electric power line to live  up to their franchise, and meet the  requirements of residents along thc  route, as promised.  It was stated that offors had been  made for the waterworks charter,  but would not be considered.  Tho matter was eventually left  over to "the new council.  The charter deals with water  rights' over .streams from Sumas  mountain running through the Matsqui  prairie towards Matsqui village.

Campaign  Advertising���������,  In the recent presidental campaign  in  the United States    nothing    was  more remarkable than the abundant  use made by,both parties of the advertising columns of. the newspapers.  The battle, in fact, was waged in tlie  press   more   than   on   the   platform.

It is very noticeable however that had the cities of Vancouver and Victoria split the vote more that, the government would  ij u',  boc.': able to cany on, and even now unless the absentee  YO'iC  i-ives tiio Liberals mure of a majority it may be that another j  ;'.  Ci.-HAlUil  niajoriiy ovei  will be held before the next live years, as  ill is but  slight one.  The past four years has  a tor  may. face,  they  can  be  only  :  small proportion of    the    electorate  The arguments upon which the cai  didate.-relies, thc principles which h  professes, must be expressed throug  some better medium than the huiha  voice.    The spoken word is, compa  7i      rCi"        latively,  but a feeble whisper.  "It i  the Oliver" '     ,        , 41  t ,,  ,the printed word that thunders.  iiown tiiciL 1/re'mior Oliver is not built the right way to keep the  members together. ThcTsessions since 1916 have shown thai  al least two of the big majority, 1-lanes and Walters, broke away  Kioi.i'iig hard over tlie traces. Should anything like that happen  aga .!, and it might with such a leader, it would place the  government Gf the day/in an awkwaid position. Even now after  an election in which the Liberals won we hear murmurings that  the Liberals should change leaders. Why we do not know, or  are not prepared to say.    But such is a fact.  However it is hoped that we shall have a better government  until next election'that was ours-to enjoy between 1916 and'the  election just past.  Uoth parties in the United State  spent at least half of their campaigi  funds for this kind of ^publicity  They organized it thoroughly. Thoj  recognized that the newspaper is tin  messenger that flies direct to tlu  minds of those who are to be influenced.���������The   Commoner  During the past election it would appear that the Independent candidate had a hard road- to hoe. Few of them have been  elected," considering the number who offered themselves. The  people of British Columbia undoubtedly feel that the -two old  .parties are good enough to rule. Many people will go and sit  in a "political meeting and listen to an independent candidate  berate either the Conservative or the Liberal candidate or government, but when-it comes to support it is another question.  ],n the past no man, and it would' appear to be the same with the  women voters, likes to lose his vote, consequently they all feel  tafcr voting forone who is likely to be a winner.  Then probably it is easier for either of the" old parties'.to  finance a campaign���������no one knows from where but the neces-  saiy financial aid appears much easier to be gotten for a Liberal  or a Conservative party. The Independent, with his campaign'  funds,,works at a great disadvantage.  The coining session of the House at Victoria will be an interesting one. One of the most important pieces of legislation  to come before the members for consideration will be the passing  of un act for government control. ]f it be true, as reprted, that  both the temperance people and the liquor people backed up the  Oliver candidates, tiie government wili find it hard to please both  ���������classes of thought. They cannot do it, and there are likely to be  some lively times. We want a sane British Columbia, a British  Columbia with an act to govern the liquor control, so that the  law, whatever it may be will be obeyed. The carrying out of the  law, after it has been enacted is very important. If a workable-  act is passed it will be easy to enforce, and British Columbia's  criminal class will not be on the increase, as under'the present  Prohibition Act. .The time that this new act is under discussion  is likely to prove an interesting one for the Oliver government  if they are sincere in the matter. '  ���������  What a shame our riding did not have a successful lady  candidate!    Look what our townsmen missed!    Ah, yes indeed.  rianiung Itoad Widths���������  ��������� The present unscientific system of  fixing the. alignment of roads is accompanied by an equally unscientific system of fixing road widths. Most  roads are too wide and many are too  narrow, and those that are too narrow are. restricted in width by reason of . the law which , requires the  others to be too wide. It may be  claimed that,both in rural and urban  territory, a general average of( sixty-  six feet is wide enough for all purposes and that no community, even  when relatively closely settled, can  afford to lay" out and pave streets  of a greater average width.  The minimum standard in Ontario  and elsewhere is sixty-six feet.    This  standard applies to the maiii arterial  thoroughfare required to carry heavy  traffic   and   to   the   short   residental \  street. required   for   the   purely   domestic,  needs  of  a   few  houses.    In  many   districts acres     of     macadam  asphalt  and  concrete  laid  in  a  few  streets might with advantage be used  oyer twice the length of street now  paved.    One consequence is that the  cost of local improvements in many  localities is  so great that money  is  not available for necessary purposes  of public sanitation.    Another is that  the tax burdens on the property owners is so heavy,that they are proportionately limited in the capital available for making their houses sanitary and durable in construction, and  they are compelled to    crowd    their  land with buildings in order to put  it to economic use.���������Review.

VICTORIA, Dec. 6.���������While Premier Oliver has not as yet made any  announcement, it is taken for granted in local Liberal circles that he  will resign his Victoria seat retaining his seat in tlie Delta riding. By  his resignation-a by-election will be  necessary and Mr. Henry C. Hall, the  defeated member on the Liberal ticket at Wednesday's election will be the  candidate.  It is expected that the Premier's  resignation will take place early in  the session and that the by-election  ,vill be held at once.

It had a real old-fashioned  rustic touch, a flavour'of new-m'own  hay,'and left a decided imprint of  rural   simplicity.  No mere city politician could have  carried it through, with su.ch verve  and eclat or, to give it in plain English, Avith such spirit and splash. Ki3s  ing a lady in public is not an acquired habit.

The. most, competent shorthand reporter west of the Rockies took verbatim notes of the preosculatory conversation between the Premier and  Mrs. Smith. In the subsequent- excitement he swallowed his notes, but  coughed up the following fragments  by'request:  "Maryallan, I'm going    to  ��������� KISS'  you"  "Honest John? 0, spare my blushes!" , ''  "Maryallan, I like your cheek." '  (Business of brushing aside trouble  some whiskers'and then)  SMACK  (Only, of course, much louder  than any type we can possibly get in  this, column.)  If. it wasn't exactly what Don Juan  would   have   described   as   "a   Long,  Long  Kiss," a  Kiss    of     Love     and  Youth", it was at least a solid, 'sub-  j stantial   and   sounding . smack.   'Experts   agree  that  if  John  had   been  forty   or   fifty, years   younger.   if^\  Ellen would have given him-a smack  for  smack.    But 'Webster,   as" |you  know,  describes more than one kind  of smack, and nobody .knows which  smack   Mrs.   Smith   would   have   returned.    Mary Ellen knows, but sho  won't   tell���������at least,  not  until  next  election campaign.  Honest  John,   we   have   baen :lo!d  on most reliable authority, had some  explaining to do in  certain  quarters  regarding this chaste saluto. Fimt of.  jail he offered to bet tiie Elliott two-  , bits   that  Bowser  couldn't   prov-i   it  ! from   the records of. the  bouse, but  jsoon shifted his ground and assumed  an  air   of  virtuous   resignation,   and  pointed with pride that this was ons  of the penalties or privilogei  of tho  greatness that have been thrust upon  iiim.  "THIS LTSS WAS A T)T.iVY, NOT  A SIN." he thundored like a sucking  dove. ;  And  thon  the hury-burly Premier  brought down the family Bible and, ���������  in a very loud voice, read the story  of thc prodigal son, and  drew quite  a   closer   analogy   between   the   two  cases.  "And he Vj!l on hi>  nock  and  kissed  him!" "Surely"  said John, "if-my namesake the a-  postle saw merit in that rich farmer  kissing the prodigal son when he returned to the fold, shouldn't I, as  farmer-premier, kiss the prodigal  daughter who lias returned lo the  Liberal fold after straying in the  land of the Independents for a brief  season".'"
