The "opening" itself will be regard  ed as epoch mak'ng when Western  Canadian history comes to be writ  ten���������not only did the , martial  guard of honor stand shiveringly  ���������it- attention during vhe somewhat  mediaeval ceremonies, while they  vhitened with the down-driving  now; but among the Lieutenant-  Governor's brilliant "staff ' were  cound forthe'first time, .a Canad-  an commander at the Esquimalt  Laval station and ne fewer than  uinie ioffacial representatives of  the new Canadian Navy from EL- M  0. S. "Rainbow"���������itself a tang-  ble symbol of IhJ g e .it Dominion^  advance-in .nationhood.  Of the  speech from the. Throne  "it"may b "es'aTd "in" comment''that'it"  followed   traditional   lines,   tour-h-  , ing-briefly upon the more notable  features of provincial progress dur  ing   the   parliamentary recess,   as  well as such national events as the  regretted death   of king  "Edward  he Peacemaker" and the accession  j[  His   Majesty George  V.,  while  -succinctly foreshadowing the more  notable   among   the  governmental  measures .of  the year.   That Brit-  sh Columbia is to be officially re-  tresented at'  the coronation  nex.  June is  briefly indicated, it being  probable   that   both      Lieutenant-  Governor   Paterson   and   Premier!  Mc Bride wi 1. go to London for that  great event-although it i������ not m-  pi-o'bable  that   the  latter   wjll .return "Sir Richard,"   a knighthood  being  on  such momentous  oecas-  ons the Monarch's mark of his ap-  prepiatip   nof   such   distinguished  services to the empire as that far  stretching empire's most youthful  prime   minister   has   already   performed.  The review of the year oust past  ;f course would hav c.been incomplete had it not contained some  passing reference to the accomplished settlement of the Songhees  reserve disput eof long yeirs' stand  mg-the determination of the life  long-pending issue between the  federal and theprovincial governments as to the fisheries jurisdiction, the summer's abundant harvest, the notabl esuccesses achieved by British Columbia's fruits in  both America and Europe, and the  substantial advance recorded in  the related industries of mining,  lumbering iand agriculture in its  varying phases.  As to finances (although such an  announcement in the speech, itself  would--savor of' self-advertisement) the public accounts present  ed just prior to adjournment upon \  th's opening day, discloses lhatdur '  ing the fiscal year* provincial reye  enue3 have mounted from $4,664,-  500.99   to   $8,874,741.94   despite   tax  H  rate reductions of last session; the  large item9 of revenue doubling  and even trebling, while Finance  Minister Ellison in his maiden budget will be able to show a money  surplus of between $2,500,0000 and  $3,000,000 after-amply providing for  prospective expenditures in due  proportion to the country's grow-  th, public works alone being this '  year expected to call for an invest ,  merit of two full millions more than  last year's record vote.  While "development by augmen  tation of rail fealties" constituted  the   text   of  last  year's' sessional   ���������  work, the feature of this year's assuredly is found in comprehensive 7  legislation for the more effectual  safeguarding of life and property  such popular leg'slation as marks   ���������  inspired statesmanship.     Chief a- .  mong this year's measures entitled ���������  to  consideration  in  this  category  is the Premier.'s bill, as .'Minister of  Mines, prescribing regulations for  the complete protection, in bo far  as legislation may go, of i*fe, !imb  and   property   in  the   coal hiineh.  This bill, it wil lbe     remembered,  was presented last year, to elicit  discussion and secure suggestions,  primarily.   Draft   copies   of      the  measure,,as'the House 'improves it,  were   widely   distributed,   and   itB  consideration rested  there in  order tha tfurther suggestions, opinions   and   practical   advice   might  nex the 'sought from owners, mine'  ,.WO.rke^^..^iningJ(:eng;ineiBrsf^^J:hei;  thinking men of the Unions, any  and everyone who might contribute  to   the bill's  efficiency  when  once it takes its place upon the sLa  tute book.   This  unusual and direct conferring with the people has  been   inprogres. for, months,   and  meanwhile the government has pro  ceeded to instal in each m.'ning cen  tre and working colliery moot 7m>d  ern  and  complete protective  apparatus   of   the  Draeger   pattern.  Aud this  was happily accomplished in time for theprovincial rt-s-me  equipment to :be rushed to the assistance of Alberta's miners and to  be the means of saving many lives  on the occasion of the Believue dis  aster.   The  'bill  is  now- complete  and will, when it passes, become .\  model for other provinces and oth ���������  ���������er nations, unchallengingeably non  partisan  and  in the   public  good.  It redounds  to the lasting credit  of Hawthornthwaite of the socialist apposition that at every stage  he has done al hn his power, to assist the  premier in the .perfecting  of this worthy measure.  A   somewhat   similar   and  nonpartisan policy   is.-being  pursued  with respect to the contemplated  bill for the intelligent and effectual conservation. of natural     resources, not only in forests     and  forestry products (first to be dealt  with) but.ultimately also in metalliferous mineral, coal, fish and oth-"  er characteristic  natural products  The forestry legislation will not be  brought down this.session, the gov  "eminent   having   as   a   first   step  presented thee  Lra-comp ehen iv"  report of the Commission composed of Messrs.

The  New Reporter Is troub.ed with ;m-  pecuniosity caused .by sitting    up  by a    sick friend for a   few nights  while   I   myself   have   gasolineous  troubles to rectify, so it oehooves  you to show 'Jie p::up.e on  lissen-  dene Avenue   and, the      highways  and by-ways that you are     some  good "devil"  and not nearly      as  badly pa.nted as some people suppose.   Smilingly, for  he always is  smiling, the '"devil" left the office  Next! morning tha New Reporter  not know ng of ih; conversation ot  the  previous   evening, arrived   at  the office,  and Oh! No fire.     No  "devil" to  greet his worship.  Lnil  the editor of course could n<jt be  expected at  that early hour.  The  scene  that greeted  the  editor when  he entered .the   . office  was most  awe inspiring     indeed.  There was 'the "devil" standing on  the ink barrel, arrayed in all the.  fine raiment of his Sunday go to  .���������neetin' clothes, biled shirt and all  while the  N. R. with a   look     of  anguish on his face, an axe in his  hand, a   can of coal'oil in the other, and  the fire  was out, was reiterating the pitfalls"of reportonal  hallucinations.   Here are a   few of  the wise sayings over heard by ye  editor;  "Bohay,   don't    take    any-  wooden money.   Bohay,  see Sumner  first.   Now   you "Dusty  D&v-  ' il", don't, see Fred.   Bohay, be care  ful not to throw any atones at the  birds.   Bohay, see  that Gernaey is  not loi'f ng on lli3 job.        Bohay,  don't  i'urget  to  greet      Silvertipa-  .with all the dignity at your command.    Bohay, be sure not to flirt  with any of the young ladies, nor  spend  your  good money on  gun:'  drops.   Bohay,  go   to���������" and calm  reigned supreme again as the editor showed himself.  Of course the usual instructions  were given and the youthful reporter started on h's herculanean  task of doin' the town for news  and ail incidentals. He returned  in a few hours and this is what he  handed in as hi3 ablest effort.  Read it for yourself it is his first.  ''Called   on   mister  Sparrow.
