The last fifty    years    have'   seen  great changes  in  the    different     institutions of ourumlion.      'Hiis      is  noted in  (lie complexify of our political system, In the vast social and industrial   progress, in   bettor  humanitarian efforts for I ho    welfare of the  sick or suffering masses of our city  populations,   and   in   a   multitude.-of,  efforts   toward   improvement   in   ������������������>ur  civilization.    Our schools    have    fell,  this (lulckoning    impulse    and    now  where formerly the little red school  house stood, great High Schools and  grade or    ward    schools    have    hueii  erected.   Where  once     one     teacher  .stood and 30 or '10 pupils    there arc  now many teachers and  hundreds of  pupils, all a part, of the great educational machine, more efficient it may  be.  in giving and    receiving    knowledge,  but  lacking  the  warm   personal interest, the almost    paternal or  maternal care of the older    teacher,  and  the  respect and    admiration  of  the boy and girl >for their friend, the  teacher.    In those    older    days'    the  teacher "boarded round."    He, for it  was often a man, was a companion iu  the home, while he stayed there.  His  conversaion was often the inspiration  for a bright boy's    career.       Sonic-  times  he  labored  with   'the  farmer,  sharing  his   pleasures  or     anxieties.  This was ideal  in    many     ways'.     It  was the nearest, approach to co-operation on the part of the teacher and  parent that our educational    system  has known since the days of Grecian  education.    With the increasing complexity of the school system and the  ever  widening distance between   the  intellectual  , status of    parent    and  teacher, more and more .of the educational progress has been delegated to  school men .till  hundreds of parents'  to-day send* their children  to school  to    comply    with     the    compulsory  school law    knowing'<��������� little of    what  the education may be, blindly believing in the .efficiency of teachers and  school texts "and school material.

In nil the other provinces the yield  is expected to average up from 10 to  ���������10 per cent. less.

It is worth noting that a small proportion of (.lie potatoes grown in Canada is used for industrial purposes,  including the manufacture of potato  starch, potato flour, and denatured,  alcohol. It is obviously desirable  that\where practicable the use of  surplus potatoes in an industrial way  should not\ be overlooked."  Mr.- Ilinlon, organizer and- publicity expert for the Retail 'Merchants  Association, when here a year ago,  emphasized the necessity of newspaper advertising for successful retail business results... Another prominent publicity expert, speaking upon  this subject, says:' ���������  "We hold, and we believe we can  show all business men clearly, that  the newspaper advertisement is the  shortest route between the mercli-  chant's goods and the. towhspeoples'  pockethooks. .  ,   '   -  "Wo agree that your windows will  attract passers by.

"If a, proper amount, of care is  taken .in preparing the ad it is practically impossible for the reader of  a paper to avoid seeing it.  "The advertisement which the  business man inserts-in the paper  is the index by' which the public  gauges the amount of business he' is  doing. The business man who rtoea  not advertise is regarded by the ��������� public as one -who is riot interested  enough in his customers to invito  them to enter his store, and often it  is thought he has no hew. goods . ut-  bargains:, to offer. ;' While this, may  not be true in every- case, yet'there  are good grounds for., this belief on  the part, of the-public, -'for'it is' frequently noticed that .those who are  not,habitual adverisers almost invariably do: advertise when they have'  anything new:or at, tiargain prices'"to  offer.to the-:public."  and so -essential that it is  strange, "that we' have not the  thought of it before.

But  if, as I', believe;-.education had for  its prime" object the training of correct judgments and the development  of character, then the school cannot  hope to carry on the work unassisted.  B$t whether the school attempts to  do the work alone or not, opposing  or helpful forces are everywhere surrounding the child, as for example,  his home, his companions, street  conditions, the church, library or his  reading, .museums, stores, occupations, the park, play ^grounds, the  theatre, .'.the gang or club, physical  nature, about him. his own nature,  conversation picked up- at random,  the newspaper funny page, postcards, saloons and pool rooms, society, etc.  The home is .or should be the  dominant source of a child's ideals.  No one tares so much or knows so  well what is good for the child as  his own .parents. If they could control the-external forces of education  so that they would co-operate with  the home instead of Opposing it,  many a -child would have been save-!  the shame of his mature youth and  would have saved his home from the  bitter humiliation .his deeds would  have'caused. This history of the majority of criminals shows poor .training and little education. The bad boy  in school is nearly always either the  poorly cared for child in thes.home  or the pampered,, spoiled child.

S. Hanes,  Independent   .liberal    member    for  North Vancouver, came out flatfoot-  ed In the House last week    in    favor  of completion of the. P. G. E. railway,  not only for the remaining 45, miles  into    Prince- George,    but    between  Squamish and Vancouver.  He described the Sullivan, Hinton  and Dennis reports as statements of  how best to abandon the railway and  said he did not agree with them.- The  people in  1912  had almost unanim*  ously  endorsed  construction  of    the  railway and  if the government now  had any intention    of   an    abandonment policy it should go to'the people  on that issue, he declared.  Failing that,  they should proceed  with caution to    complete--the road.  He stated that the 27 miles between  Whvtecliff and Squamish should not  cost more than"$3,000,000 at an outside figure.      Its construction would  give the railway access to the term-  nal facilities    set    aside    on    False  Creek when that area was reclaimed.  . Plenty of Timber.  As to the move    to    abandon  the  line between  Squamish and Clinton,  Mr. Hanes    stated,   that    there    was  enough   timber  above  Squamish     to  give ample revenue to warrant operation it the government would    only  establish /booming grounds., so. .^hat  the lumber men could get their logs  into t he ��������� water. .

VICTORIA, Nov. 3.���������For two  hours.of the two and u half hours ho  spoke in the Legislature Thursday  afternoon, W. J. Bowser, K. C, leader of the op p 03 i Li on, wayed verbal  war against the government's administration of the Liquor .Control AcK  Shortly after he commenced his ad->  dress he turned his attention to Attorney-General A. 'M. Manson, as the  minister lit dmrtfOsof the liquor laws,  and his castigation covered practically every phase of.the department's  operations since the act became ' effective in Juno 1921, and particr/tir-  ly since IIon. Mr. -Manson assumed  office last .January.  Mr. IJowsor, after "fearing the liquor administration to pieces." look  up the Manson-Slevens feud and reviewed , the affair at considerable  length. ' v -  '���������'  "I wish to call the attention o! the  House to 'the entrance olj a jouiil';  man into the government this year,"  he said, referring to the attorney-  gcneral'i "Me came with, a great  flare of trumpets, clashing'1 of cymbals and heralding of the press, His  first announcements included one to  file effect that he was out to conduct  the     government's    liquor     business  from a moral standpoint and not , to  make money; which was contrary ro  tho Premier's remarks that the  people of the province expected the  government to make a fair profit.  Prohibition Bulletin Quoted.  In substantiation of the latter  statement the opposition leader read  from a newspaper clipping which so  reported the Premier. The government leader rose lb remark ,that of  course ho did' not admit tho correctness of the press report.  Mr., Bowser���������I read it bocause I  know the Premier would deny it.,   <-  Ho also quoted' Hon. Mr. Manson  as having said that, surely the Premier,had not, meant revenue first when  making the reported statement. Later the attorney-general announced  the ''moral intentions'' aspect of tho  situation.  "So now we have an attorney-general, as comparod with his predecessor, whose morals aro above question," wont on Mr.i Bowser; "Well, .1  will^yy for his predecessor (Mr.'Far-  ris) he never claimed to have any  morals."     (Laughter).     N  Mr. Bowser quoted' from a copy of  the Prohibition Bulletin wherein Mr.  Manson was,reported as haying said  He, or his  the act was being administered only  for money lied. ' The act would be  administered for the benefit of trio  family life of the people.  Family Life in The Liquor Act,.  '; "Now, lot's see," he wont on.  "Here is the minister not out for revenue, but his 'wicked chief is  encouraging; him. 1 refer, you to the  Instructions sent out for.a clean-up  of the liquor situation. But what of  Prince 'Rupert? Then complaints  wore senl to Mayor Tlsdall of Vancouver, to the->effect that the city  must clean house oiv the department  would,have to step in.  "I say the attorney-general has the  power in his own hands to   stop   the  beer-clubs    operating,  predecessor,��������� licensed them."  Mr. Bowser said that former Attorney-General FarrisMiad cancelled  twenty-five club licenses; Premier  Oliver as acting attorncy-gene'-'ul.  had cut off thirteen licenses, whiles  the present minister had only accounted for two, At this point h*  referred to Hon. Mr'. Manson as  "thib moral attorney-general who  has introduced family life into the  Liquor Act."  To Catch Cars rYoin Anacortes.  The next location mentioned was  Sidney, where Mr. " Bowser said a  store had. been placed to catch the  tourists travelling on the ferry from  Anacortes. The store was "conveniently located on the whan*.' He suggested that since the 0. P. R. were  installing another ferry to operate  from Bellingham, a store might be  opened on that vessel ��������� and    then no  pportuhity- an  anadian  oys  In;the   heart of  the  Laurentians  surrounded by lakes and mountains am  now satisfied  that no .one  ever  that compose that far-famed summer resort of Eastern Canada is  the Shawbridge Boys' Farm and  Training- School, an institution that  as doing a great and much needed  work. Its several fine buildings are  set in surroundings that make for  the upbuilding of physical and moral  stamina, and upwards of two hun  dred lads of varying ages are there  being given a new and better chance  to make good in this country of  opportunity for young men.        v'  The farm is supported partly by  a grant from the Quebec Provincial  Government, and partly by public  subscription. ��������� Its president is E. W.  Beatty, President of the C. P. R���������  and at a-recent gathering there, Mr.  Beatty gave an" address in which  were ssaid many things that might  profitably be  read by  all  Canadian  ��������� boys.    He said in part:  '"���������When I was a.very young boy at  echool I did not believe in study.  I worked a little, but I played a lot,  and I did many of the things I  should not do, and left undone many  of, those I should. ������ When I was  thirteen years of age, and had finished one year's course in a prominent school in'Toronto, my parents  received a report which, without  bragging, I think I may say was  the worst report ever written about  a boy. I was in trouble from the  beginning of the year. I had spent  most of my time after hours in  school,   doing   the   things   I   should  ��������� have done during the class period.  When this report was received it  was accompanied by a note that in  the opinion of the principal of that  school it would get along fairly well  if I did not return.  I do not remember ever having  felt so humiliated about anything as  I was when T read that ��������� report. I  felt that I had proved to the college  and to the other pupils my inability  ..to do as well as others and take advantage of the educational opportunities which were offered me. I  was sent to another school where  my record was not known, for which  I was very thankful. I there fell  into the hands of a teacher who was  one of the best teachers for boys  I   had  ever   met   though   he  had  a  us-when he'was not abusing us.    If  likely.,to be hit on the head with a  ruler,   but   the   first   words   of   en  tion  of  this  fact  increased' until  I  succeeded who did not work, and  that fortuitous events or .accidents  do not make for permanent success.  None of you here will ever regret  'the time you have spent in mastering things" which appear # hard, or  curing yourselves of habits which  they have inherited or which you  have acquired. The older you grow  the more you will, realize the fact  that men even in "this young, country are fighting for a ��������� living,, that  competition is keen and men more  numerous  than  good .positions.      ���������  You will be told that your objeet  in life is to be a success, and that  is . true, because without ambition  to a success no man goes Very far.  But success does not, necessarily  mean the amassing of money, or the  obtaining of high position. A man  may be a success in the truest sense  of the tenh if he _ has moderate  means, is charitable and helpful to  others, and, above , all," retains his  own self-respect, which , inspires;. the  respect of others, quite ..regardless  whether he is ��������� the , -.possessor of  money  or without  it.  You will find, too,.that the things  which you admire in others are the  things which you would like to' be  yourself. .You wiU'-see men judged  by others 'in accordance with ��������� thre������  or four simple standards.- If- he  possesses those qualities and those  standards he will be. admired and  respected by his fellows. If he does  not, he will fail.  To attain success the most,,essenr  tial thing is good health. A' sound  body usually means a Sound mind,  and a boy who is careful of his  health and makes himself strong  and vigorous has distinct advantage  over those who are physically weak.  While it is not impossible, it is extremely difficult for anyone to work  against the handicap of ill - health.  And so I say to you in all seriousness, work hard, and play hard, enjoy games, and spend your time as  much as possible in the open. Build  yourselves up, because you , may  have a long life, and every ounce of  strength you store up in your youth  adds to your vitality when you are  older.  If that is a physical necessity to  j    naa   ever    mei   cuuugn    ue   uau   a        -"-j-   v..*...   .-  -   r- ���������'/v������������������������������������������������������       -..-v   .  very violent temper.   He encouraged a   man's   success,  there  are  certain  moral   qualities   without   which   he  US --vylieu   lie   waa   uui   ouiwiiij;   uo.      ij.    i..v.������~.     ^l~������������������--~- , ,  anyone   showed  inattention   he  was  cannot   obtain    permanent' advance  ment.  The first is honesty.;  No man in  courag-ement   I  ever   received   came this, or any other country who is not  from that man. He told me that  some say if I worked hard I might  amount to something, which was  news to me���������I had never heard it beY  fore. -In any event he gave me an  iiispiration to study, and so I worked,  and the more I worked the more I  realized how valuable it was, and  as the years went by my apprecia-  honest has attained permanent success. He may. appear to-do so. He  may amass money by means which  are at least doubtful, but without  honesty he cannot gain or retain the  respect of his fellow-men, and without that no man can be said to be  a success. "~  '   The second essential  i������   courage.  Moral courage like physical courage,  is of a great advantage to a boy.  Moral courag* is what enables a  man ;to do right, regardless of what  others think or-say, who refuses to  do wrong no matter what the  .temptation. Physical courage ' is  that. independence and confidence in  your own. physical abilities which  enables a man to fight a bully, even  though he Ib physically his superior,  because he will not be put down  through fear. Physical courage is  very- common. It exists to a more  or less * extent in most Canadian  boys.    Moral courage is more rare.  The third essential is modesty.  Ther������ is .nothing more admirable  than the modesty of a boy who at  the same/time maintains his own  self-respect. Coupled with modesty  is courtesy, and most' modest people  are courteous. Most conceited people are not.  The modest boy never forgets to  be polite to his elders or to women,  and the first thing which an older  man or woman recognizes and appreciates about a boy is his attitude  of respect to those who ' are older  than he. I cannot tell you how  many positions have been' won by  boys whose manner towards older  people has been modest and respectful, or how many lost by those who  forgot this essential quality.  - I told you that life is a struggle.  It is also a race, and if you are- in  the race you must be equipped so  that the competition will be equal.  No boy whe neglects his studies has  the same opportunity afterwards as  a'boy who does not. He finds him-,  self handicapped in a hundred way3  by a lack of knowledge which he *  should have acquired when the opportunity, was offered him. He sees  other boys go ahead of him because  of this advantage, and he oftentimes,  is reduced to earning his living by  physical work for the simple reason  that he has not trained himself to  think. , _ .  Learn all that you can learn. Follow the instructions of your teachers, because, later what they teach  you will b������'!found of gTeat advantage, and without it you will feel  handicapped, embarrassed, and sometimes "ashamed.  There is a word we use to sum up  a lot of qualities which we admire  in any boy, and that is , manliness.  Manliness mans a boy who is considered courageous, fair, generous,  and -who respects himself and  others. . Everyone admires a manly  boy No one admires a boy who is  a sneak, who cheats, who does mean,  underhand things. We like a boy  or a man who stands on his own feet,  looks everyone in the eye, who succeeds because he works and because  he uses his ability for his own advancement'without injuring anyona  else." ���������   -  -���������-��������� '  one would be missed.  A, store had recently been opened  at. Coalniont, said Mr. Bowser. At  that place,' the men came down from  (he inilies in buckets and the store  was right whore they got off.  lie next spoke of the'Premier recommending "made in B.'C. Whisky,"  distilled at New Westminster. An  ordcr-in-council was passed on May .  18 providing for the sale of the "hip  mickey." An order was passed "for  the sale of the lG-ounce bottle, the  "Manson Mickey."  Then a man could easily slip ' one  of'these mlckeys into his hip pocket  and escape detection; or one, in each  pocketi and the price was' reasonable.  The whisky was only two years old  but that did not make any differ- ���������  ence, and you can get it at Manson'a  store for $2. ���������    .  "So I say the attornoy-general ha&  been  retrograding the morals of the  country instead of raising them," he  charged.  Above (lie Laws of the Country.    '  Mr. Bowser then spoke of an advertisement of this B.'-C. whisky."  The copy read. "How to keep well,"  and the reading matter extolled the  virtucs-of the brand. It was good for  coughs and colds and numerous ailments, including insomnia.  "That^is what the Premier recommended; he should take some of his  own medicine, as he suffers from insomnia," advised the speaker.  "That would not elevate my family life," chortled Hon. Mr. Oliver.    ,  Mr.   Bowser   then   spoke   of .the -.  crown being above the laws   of   the  country, since the liquor stores were  kept open on    Wednesday    and    all  others were closed.    Was this    not .  defaming the laws of the land? In- '  stead of young men    spending their  Wednesday    afternoons    at.   picnics  they were influenced to buy liquor,"  he said.   '    .  ,      . ,  "And recently at Kamloops one of  the commissioners,    J. H. Falconer, .  said that'in order to stop bootlegging  it might be necessary   to   keep, the  stores open until 10 o'clock," he con-   ,  tinued.     "The  bootlegger  works  in ���������  the dead of night;     that sis    the excuse."     ' .,-  The opposition leader made fun of  .  the reported suggestion-of   the ' Premier while en route to . the    Nelson ,  convention that good cider might be  made from surplus Okanagaii apples.  "Then 1  understand  he conferred.,  with  his son  regarding manufacturing brandy from peaches. . First    of  all a prohibition premier, a contributor to    prohibition    funds,    recom-'  .mending the use of    B. C.    whisky; ',  then the manufacture of cider   ,arul '  peach   brandy!" he   .humorously exclaimed.  "f would suggest to the attorney-  general that he    label    the.   brandy  'Honest John' and riiake    it'a    good  seller," he added; " and laughter fpl-,  lowed.  Mr. Bowser then criticised the permission granted for the transfer of  a bonded liquor warehouse from  Creston to Greenwood. That was*  done because Greenwood was closer .  in touch with American consumers,  lie said. Hon. Mr. Manson and Mr.  Farris interjected that the transfer  could not have been prevented-.legally. ' ". ,  Language of the Dor- -Kennel.  Taking    up    the    Manson-Stevens  verbal dispute, the leader of the op- ���������.  position said that the attorney-gener-. ,  al's  characterization  of  Mr.  Stevens  as a yellow, yellow cur and a. scav- ,  enger was language conducive to    a  breach of the peace and    would   encourage partisanship to run wild. It  ���������  was the language of the dog-kennel,  he asserted, and he    recalled an in-   ,  stance  when     the     attorney-general  as member for Omineca had    "barn-  ed"   at  the opposition  leader across  the fioor of the House.  "The honourable gentleman misunderstood me at that time and I  am sorry he. did;' I thought that was  forgotten" returned Mr. Manson.  "My hearing is good and abuse of  -  a vulgar kind is of no    excuse"    was  'Mr.   Bowser's  reply. -  He asserted that Mr. Stevens had  been a minster of the federal I House  and was a reputable and responsible  citizen. He knew what he was talking about when'he made his charges.  Bootlegging- as Industry in North.  Mr. Bowser referred to Mr; Man-  son's statement that Prince Rupert  and the ridings',of Omineca and Fort  George were clean.  Mr. Manson���������I did not say that  Prince Rupert was clean but I said  that the latest reports showed Omineca and Fort George to be clean. I.  was dissatisfied with conditions in  Prince   Rupert.  Mr. Bowser���������Then why have wailed .until Mr. Stevens' charges were  made on October 10 before commencing a clean-up?  Hon. Mr. Manson���������For the same  reason that we waited in'other parts'  of the province where prosecutions  are pending; when we can get  around to them.  Mr. Bowser���������Prosecutions could  be launched in Penticton, "Delta.  Fernie and elsewhere, so why not in '  his home town of Prince Rupert  where conditions should be best  known?  The opposition leader said there  were 28 0 bootleggers in Prince Rupert: bootlegging was one of the  town's chief industries and no man  who arrived there with money    was'  (Continued on Last Page)  ' if  "\  fcl  ���������\  :     ���������...��������������������������� .'

He refen-eft to lion. Mr. Manson s  speech before the Liberal Association in Victoria and the maker "feeling ashamed of it in the momint?,  when he saw it in cold print."  "Then the following evening he  went to Esquimalt to speak," continued Mr. Bowser, "and suggested thai,  politics should be taken out of the  gutter. At the same . meeting he  spoke of a coat of tar and feathers  awaiting Mr. Stevens in Omineca.  ��������� Imagine the attorney-general of this  province suggesting to his bootlegger friends in Omineca that they tar  and feather Mr. Stevens!"  He digressed a moment to speak of  law enforcement, and courthouses,  saying that the late government had  been roundly criticized for constructing courthouses all over the country.  "Yes, we constructed courthouses,  but how about the $400,000 one in  Pria-ce'..Rupert, with its three chairs  costing;,;$1600? And the building,  while nearing completion, is being  held up while .marble is being  brought from-Italy,":'he added.  Mr. Bowser claimed that the  Daily News of, Prince Rupert had  roundly, flayed the policy of the administration in a recent editorial, although that paper was the organ of  the government. Objection was voiced to the way in which a "clean-up"  of the townSvas started shortly after  - the Stevens charges were made: The  speaker' read a clipping taken from  the Prince Rupert paper, which  warned that, stool pigeons were on  their way and that even the red lignt  districts-would be closed.  Hon. Mr. Manson objected that  the report was a mistaken one and  appeared to be the fabrication of  some fertile brain.  -,.Mr. Bowser next took up what he  said what a most serious matter, the  Stevens charge that Hon. Mr. Man-  son was a member of a legal firm  .handling criminal work: As attorney-general', Hon. Mr. Manson was  prosecuting criminals while his  '.partner or partners were defending.  The1-attorney-general denied this  emphatically, and again offered to  open the books of the firm and declared that his firm had not handled  criminal or quasi-criminal cases excepting in two instances shortly after  his appointment, and these were  handled under unusual conditions.  He asserted that not one dollar went  Into his pocket, or would, in this  connection. He said a separate firm  had been incorporated.  Mr. 'Bowser:. A firm within a'  firm.  Hon. Mr. Manson: No. a firm without a firm.  Mr. Bowser: I don't care where  the profits go, the offices used are  the same.  He spoke of a case where the at't-  torney:general's department was  prosecuting an offender and a mem-  of the legal firm was defending. ,Tho  man was convicted and sentenced.  Later a pardon was granted.  The minister explained that (.here  were extenuating circumstances. The  ' citizens .had asked for clemency, two  justices of the peace likewise, and  the constable declared that the man  was in such ill-health that he could  not stand a prison sentence. Further,  the wife of the convicted man had  lost her eyesight.  Mr. Bowser spoke of a man on the  Queen Charlotte Islands being prosecuted for murder by the Crown,  while one of Mr. Manson's firm defended  him.  He then said the beer clubs were  still running in Prince Rupert and  that while the attorney-general  might change the firm name, business came through the underworld.  And what influences the underworld?  he  asked.  Earlier in his address he referred  to the frequent caucuses held by the  Liberal party and asserted that the  Premier had been dictated to repeatedly by the caucus, until he had even  lost his prerogative as' leader. Already this session, he added, the  party whip was cracking so effectively that    private    members    were  Abbotsford, B.C.  being stifled and prevented from  speaking upon the needs of their "constituencies.  He said that at Nelson the Premier promised that patrongage would  be rest.ablished and added that' he  did not know when it had been ahol-  ishod.  "But let the dance go on; your  time is short,"  he warned.  Then he added that for the-first  time in the history of party government, Vancouver was without cabinet representation, and for over a year  that, great city had been without, its  full six members. It was being robbed for political advantage, which  lie called a cowardly, unconstitutional action. '    ..  He spoke of the $43,000 which had  been collected by G. G. McGee'r, K|  C, as fees and epenses for carrying  on the freight rates fight at Ottawa, and wondered what the net  results wore to tiie people: He  claimed that the Premier and Mr. Mc  Geer were not entitled to the credit  for what. British Columbia tiki receive. On the other hand, Premier  King was confronted with a peculiar situation, and the farmers' votes  did the trick.  "1 hope it won't take another  $48,000 to go into the coffers oi  Vancouver friends before the matter  is disposed of," remarked the opposition leader.  He twitted the finance minister  over the mention in , the King's  speech of the stabilization of exchange, to the great advantage- of  B. C. and said that surely Hon. M\:  Hart, never in his, wildest dreams,  ���������thought that he had accomplished  the stabilization of exchange in Wall  Street.  Mr. Bowser said it would not bi.  long before the. minister! would be  trying to borrow from five to.ten milr  lion dollars more, and it. was necessary to. get the government members  into  good   humor..  The speaker wondered why mention had not been made in the Kings*,  speech oi' the proposed survey of  crown timber lands. He suggested  that there was a history to this which-  the minister might well have kept in'  the  dark. .    ...  Premier's Great Railroad Ambitions  Speaking of the P. G. E.' he remarked that conditions were getting  worse and worse, but* the government decided to "muddle through,"  and.ho felt that all they could do  was to keep on muddling. He spoke  lightly of the Premier's retirement  as minister of railways, and of the  secret way in which Hon. Dr. Mac-  Lean had been sworn in.  The latter was true to the .place of  his birth, and as minister of education had surrounded himself witu  employees from Prince Edward Island. That minister's knowledge  of railways, said Mr. Bowser, was-  largely confined to the narrow-gauge  one on Prince Edward Island. Probably Hon. Dr. MacLean would go  down in history as the narrow-gauge  minister of railways.  LOCAL and DISTRICT  Miss F. E. Trethewey is spending  the week-end in Seattle.
