Box 94  ORANGEMEN  CELEBRATE  IN MISSION  CITY  (From Fraser Valley Record)  Orangemen from Haney,  "Hammond, Port'Coquitlam, Abbotsford Chilliwack, ��������� Mt. Lehman and Agassiz were the visitors to our town and the guests  of the Mission City Lodge. The  day was an ideal one and the  various lodges brought with  them many friends besides their  wives and children to enjoy the  celebration  and outing.  The Abbotsford Brass Band,  music that the Valley do not  appear to be able to get alon^;  without now, was present, and  the Fife and Drum from Agassiz also supplied music.  The procession was formed  downtown and marched to the  agricultural grounds, where an  excellent dinner awaited, after  which a number of speeches  were listened to. The speakers  were: Mr. J. A. Catherwod, M.  L. A. Rev. Mr. Hobbins of Mission City, Rev. Mr. Lancaster,  of Agassiz, Mr. Jim Robertson.  of Chilliwack, Mr. W. T. Jago;  of Port Coquitlam; Mr. Stephenson, of Chilliwack; Mr. Sing,-^  leton, of Agassiz,acted as chairman.  The afternoon was enlivened  by sports for the children and a  baseball match between the  Mission City team and a team  picked from among the visiting  Orangemen, the former Winning out.  The celebration is considered  one of the best held by the Order for many years, and it is  hoped that ere another eighteen years the Orangemen will  visit Mission City again.  HIGHWAY PROPOSED  OVER   OLII  llOADUED  The Automobile Club of Edmonton has written to tlie Jocal club in  Vancouver with reference to a .proposed highway over the old roadbed of the C. -N. IL, from which the  rails wore removed during the war.  The Edmonton motorist's have  petitioned the premier of Alberta  asking that construction be commenced on the Edmonton to J.asper section, and they suggest that similar  action be taken here. Such a highway, if completed, would connect  Edmonton with the coast via Lake  Windermere.  Tho Edmonton Auto Club points  out that the construction of the road  would materially assist the unemployment situation.  WILL REPRESENT Ii. C.

This week we publish (.ho  Vancouver Sun's accusation a-,  Gainst. Ihc  Oliver  government  ion, it is not quite dignified enough, some say. The result is  (hat all. want,,to put off (he evil  and particularly (he premier day as long as,possible, thiuk-  himselt*. We have never in all ling that time may heal the big  tlie quarter of a century of in-'break in the parties and that in  teres! in British Columbia politics ever seen such accusation^  against any British Columbia  government and most Certainly  regret the need for the present  stale of affairs' in the province  for (here is reason in the Sun's  action, although one cannot  ,help but think that it is certainly a drastic action at that,  and may surprise mauy-by its  effectiveness.  . All good British Columbians  cannot help but feel that such  complaint against our governments not to the credit of the  province. Nothing is a worse  advertisement to any province  or country than to see its government not acting in accordance with the wishes of the  people���������in other words (he  people want a good clean government at all times, even if if  is not of their particular party  politics. During the election  we fight for our party, but ai"-,  ter election is over,, all want to  see^ good clean, straightforward  government action, that no one  can reproach with actual wrong  doing.  British Columbia has reached  that stage.in its history where  it can be considered one of the  most populous and most prosperous of the nine sisters,   and  we all want our government to  be above reproach.        Nothing  debars good and   big   business  from coming to a province as  much as to hear the business  man, the man on the street���������.  the voter, always finding fault  with   fehe  government,  and   to  see that, there is really     some  cause for the verbal expressions j  of disgust.    We want our province to prosper, and it will nol  when men are accusing a government of graft and undue patronage.  a short time the Farmers who  were either Liberals or Conservatives, will again go back lo  party affiliations.  ASK FOR ROYAL  COMMISSION FOR CAMIM-MIIjL  WAKHHOUSU   DUAL  Premier Oliver has just sent the  following ��������� letter to The Vancouver  Sun:  "1  am- writing-for the purpose ol  advising you directly that if you make la the sun'mid  the fresh  a charge of    wrong    doing    against''more frcelvtftan of. yore!  l.-AiiJuAiiMJ    ...'. i/ii'i.S     Ai'Tllifl  A leagus is' to, bo formed, so news  despatches .!say,    'against     immodest  dress.

BRITISH COLUMBIA  TELEPHONE -Co.  i  ���������������  The present census would indicate that our province at the  next distribution bill at Ottawa  will probably have an. enlargement of its members at'the Dominion parliament, with a jusi  claim for more Senators���������a big  chance for Mary Ellen, if the  right government wore in power there.  Then will be the opportunity  for British Columbia's voice t<;  be heard with greater effect "especially if greater Vancouver  gets six members.  The next election   does    not  appear to  be in  sight for the  federal government���������no apparent preparation on the part oi  the two great parties to  have  "preparedness' as  the    watchword with which to    face    the  people.    No  one  has  been  yet  heard to seriously take the Liberal leader's demand for an election  before another  session.  No one believes, owing   to   Lhe  present condition of affairs politically, to think that (he Liberals want an election any more  than does    the    Conservatives.  There   appears to be a   certain  fear that the Farmers will  be  ablevto spoil the combination iu  some mysterious way.    It may  look all right for the leader of  the Farmers'    party    and    the  leader of the opposition to sit  on the same side of the House  as opposing    the   government,  but it would not   look well   for  a Conservative and   a   Liberal  leader to sit having to oppose  the Farmer government, for we  really do not    see    how   they  could very well unite to make a  good opposition.    That kind of  an opposition might be all right  for Ontario but for the Domin-  either myself or any of my colleagues  or against any employees of the Government, and support the same by  evidence, that matter will he investigated. A statement ' from you as to  whether you are in'possession of such  evidence, or if being in possession of  such evidence, you will submit, the  same Cor iny consideration, will bo,  appreciated."  Wc, therefore, repeat the following  facts, and if Premier Oliver says that  lie requires any more evidence than  this' to convince him of official  wrong doing, all we can say is that  British Columbia requires a new  Premier:  1. Amount-paid out of public  funds for liquor ware-house, $150,-  000,000.  2. Assessment on city hall records  is: Land, $18,800; building $40,000  Total   $58,8.00.00.  3. Official valuation by the Van-  'couvcr Read Estate Exchange is:  Land, $27,500; building' $55,000;  total   $82,500.00. <  4. Two years ago this property-  was quit claimed to the mortgagee for  the. amount of the mortgage, taxes  and interest arrears, amounting to  :around,   $70,000.00.  5. A- warehouse equally, as valuable and suitable as the Campbell  property, was offered to the Government and is stil available for about  $55,000.00.  6. -A special survey made by Herman and Herman, official land surveyors, shows that the building encroaches on the adjoining property  ���������.o the north by 16 inches, meaning  that expensive litigation aud damages are necessary in order to clear  title. -  All of these acts are official and  their reliability cannot be questioned  by  Premier Oliver.  When the Premier tries to justify  laying $150,000 of the people's  noney on the ground, that it. was  costing the Government 4 4 cents per  square foot under a lease, he only  further arouses the public's anger  because every business man in Vancouver who rents, knows that tho  average, rent for a first-class' warehouse is between 1 cent and 1 I-2^  cents or, at the outside, 2 cents per  'square foot. There.i's now available  down in the farehouse district, two  complete floors in a large first-class  building for rent at-one-half cent per  square foot.  Premier Oliver should know that  the public is not concerned in thv  particular brand oT fraud that has  been used to misappropriate thcii  money, and whether it has' been tak-  m from the treasury through the  ������������������-onnivance of the Attorney-General,  >r through the medium of. a fraudulent lease, docs not interest the peo-  nle one bit. All they know is that  their money is gone.  With information before him (hat  ���������is capabo of absolute proof'by a, few  'ours of personal investigation  'Vernier Oliver is not justified in put-  ���������ing the country to the expense of a  ���������loyal Commission. An official pronouncement should be made not later than Thursday evening to the  effect that those ministers who were  ������������������csponsiblc for this' deal, will be asked to resign from the Government,  >r that an  inquiry by a Royal Corn-  But if a careful examination wer  made of all the feminine nvuds '"  the country it would be found, (hat  "the sex-lure',' would be found large  ly in the minds of magazine writer:  and a few old cats with mediaeva'  mentality.  Remember to throw out the chile''  'when about to go over a bum)) in the  road. If is surprising bow much  easier a car rides when this' is done.  The car merely coasts over if instead  of being driven, and so the shock ���������'���������  reduced. If there is room it is we'1  to approach such obstructions at an  angle: then only one wheel strikes i'  at a time and the shock is further re-  r  duced.  Watch for symptoms of a weak  battery, the starter will not turn the  engine as rapidly as usual, the lights  will show dimmer than. customary  when the starter is used, the ights  will 'rise and fall with the speed - of  the engine, and if the battery is verv  weak the engine will miss explosions  As soon as' these symptoms are noticed, test the battery with the hydrom.-  eter. and find out the cause of th������  trouble, which is either a defect' i-1  charging plant* or else comes from  some abuse qf>; tlie car.

On the rim of the world in Western Canada, just off the mainland of  British Columbia, lies Vancouver  Island, an outpost of the Empire.  This Island, which, on a map of the  world, looks almost negligible in  comparison with lhe vast area of  Canada, is .-as big as several of the  Kingdoms of Europe, and is in reality made up of 15,000 square miles  of magnificent and diversified country.  One of the Island's chief attractions to the traveller, if he is anything of a sportsman, is J,he fine  fishing and hunting to be obtained  among the mountain fastnesses, the  grianl timber, and in the waters of  the lakes and streams. A day or  two's run out from Victoria, the  capital of British Columbia, situated  on the southern extremity of Vancouver Island, will take one to the  heart of the primal solitudes, the  sanctuary of all sorts of game from  the black \boar and the elk, to the  beaver and the squirrel, from the  quail to the eagle. But perhaps the  sport which has made Vancouver  Island famous is more its fishing  than ..its hunting, for the salmot:  caught in the waters here are the  biggest and gamiest in the world.  There are two streams on the Island which rival one another from  a sportsman's point of view. The  first, which, has been fished by all  sorts of people from princes and  prelates, down the social scale. ��������� is  the Cowichan River, named for a  famous Indian tribe which used to  inhabit this part of the country, and  about whom there are many tragic  and romantic stories. The Prince of  Wales, during his week's visit on  Vancouver Island tried his luck  in  this stream; the Duke of Devonshire  and many of his predecessors h-'v?  spent a holiday here; and King  George himself, when, he was b>  British Columbia, caught some rjjiri  how beauties in this famous witer  The river itself is over twenty mile':  in length from . the lake to tin-  sea, and' has numbers of splendid  "reaches" and good pools. Indian  guides are a necessity. These fe!  lows will take the canoes up the  river for you, and you may travel  '���������p by motor and come down the  stream withi them. -Fine steelhead?  are caught here'on the fly iu ths  winter and early spring months, .ami  after the first freshets in the spring  the rainbow and cut-throats begin  to run. affording sport to the fly  fisherman all summer until the rivet  gets too low. Some Dolly Vardens  are also to be had. At the mouth of  the river������������������Cowichan Ray���������salmon  run' winter, spring and fall, some  specially large ones coming in during (he latter season.  But the most thrilling sport of all  is to be obtained at CamobeU Rivor,  the  stream,  which   for   the   present  marks the northern boundary of the  transcontinental  Highway, atid'which  is   situated   about    two   days'  easy  motor   drive    from    Victoria.

The faWs here,  are among the most magnificent to  be found in the West.' All along the  Ca.mpoul! River, where the current  permits, is fine trout fishing, but it  is not the ioy;of landing the speckled  beauties which brings most fishermen to this stream.  During the months of August tha  magnificent specie-known as the bij?  "Tyee .Salmon" (King Sulmon) come  to the mouth of this river on its way  to the spawning beds; and to appreciate just- how endlessly excitinjf  fishing can really be. one should see  what goes on here at .the height of  the season.- The fish run up to sixty  pounds and over, and it is no uncommon sight to see a half a dozen  boats all playing tyces at the ssnia  time. The water itself is never  quiet, for here you feel the current,  of the boisterous river, and the swell  from the sea. Add to this the nois������  of men and women .shouting, your  own lines singing in your car's, the  boat laid over almost on its side  from the pull of.the heavy fish fighting for its life, and you have, enough  "thrills" to make you remember th������  occasion. Many is the tyce that {fives  the fisherman from a half-hour to  an hour's hard work before he is  finally gaffed.

On the. compression stroke the piston is forced upward by the crank  shaft. Both valves are closed and  the gas is ' forced into the head of  the cylinder, from which place' it  cannot escape. As gas is elastic and  compressible, it may be forced into a  small space or compressed. This  operation brings the piston to the  top and prepares the cylinder for tho  next stroke.  The Power Stroke.���������The ignition  system is set to give a spark in the  cylinder just as the piston is about  to start down. This sets fire to the  inflaniable gas and so produces the  explosion. The heat of the explosion expands the gas rapidly, making  the power necessary to force the  piston down. This power is then  transmit ted by means of the connecting rod. crank-shaft, fly-wheel and  the different parts of the transmission to the rear wheels, and drives  the car.    The cylinder is now    filled  with useless gas which    must be expelled and we have.  The Exhaust Stroke.���������The piston  moves upward again and the exhaust-  valve is opened by the cam shaft. The  burnt gas is forced out by the piston,  passing through-..the exhaust manifold, the muffler, and finally reaching the outside air.    -  To repeat in a few words:  1. The Suction Stroke.;���������The' inlet  valve opens and the piston ��������� moves  downward, sucking in the fresh  charge of gasoline vapor and air.  t.
