C, Nov. 3.���������Dr. Alex,  ander Robinson's connection with the  . provincial department of education  will cease today. An order-in-coun-  cil giving effect to the severance and  appointing a successor was passed at  this morning's meeting of the Oliver  cabinet. He will be granted a gratuity of three months' salary and a retiring allowance of $133 per month..  His successor will be Samuel .T. VVil-  . )in,. 13. A., at present principal of King  Edward  High   School,  Vancouver.  Dr. Robinson is a native of the  north of Ireland. He came to' British Columbia from Nova Scotia in  1890, and. was principal of public  schools and of high school in Vancouver up to 1898, when he was appointed superintendent of education.  His high standing in education-affairs  was recognized in 19 07 by his election to the presidency of the Dominion  Education Association.  Mr. Robinson belonged to the old  school pf curricula, and was a man  of firm convictions as to policy.  While education under his direction  made rapid strides, in later years hs  was much in the limelight when he  expressed himself as strongly averse  to such educational developments as  domestic science.  Samuel J. Willis received his education at McGill University, Montreal, 1  where he graduated in 19 00, and received his M. A., at Charlottetown,  P.E.I.. where he Jed in classics and  ot McGill tied with his nearest competitor foi the Chapman medal in  classics.  Coming west in 1900 he taught in  the V'.ctoria High School, and later  became principal. In 1915 he was  transferred to the University of B.C.  as professor of classics. With the  resignation of Principal S. W. Mathews at King Edward High School  Mr. Willis was apopinted in his place  on July 4, 1918. Since then he lias  had charge there and has created a  very favorable impression both on  the students and the teaching staff of  tho school.

Wood, chairman of the dominion executive of the Victory Loan made tho  following comments    on the success  of the campaign Lo date:  "The campaign is now practically half finished.  The success to date has been due in  large measure to the fact that investors who have so far purchased bonds  have bought more than they did in  previous leans.    The fact that experienced  investors  large    and    small,  have subscribed early and have taken  ruore  bonds than  ever  before,  indicates that they recognize the attractiveness of the Victory Loan as an investment as well as appreciating the  patriotic necessity of cleaning up our  war    obligations    and     maintaining  prosperity.    The total subscribed reported   so   far  aggregate   $208,000,-  000.    It must be remembered  however that this amount includes a very  large proportion of the big subscriptions, available and in order to make  a success of the loan it will be necessary as in previous years, that the  medium and smaller subscribers shall  come  forward    in     great    numbers.  "The   rate  of   interest  carried   by  the bonds namely  5  1-2  per cent Is  same as  on  the  loans issued in  the  dark days of the war,  all pf whi/.'h  loans are selling at substantial premiums. As a'matter of fact, this new  loan   is  particularly  attractive  from  the standpoint of the- small investor  and   one  of  the  gratifying  features  of the campaign has been the readiness with which tlie employees of industries have taken  the loan where  they had the experience    of    buying  previous,loans.    This is Canada's final war effort and it is not only good  business   but  good     patriotism     for  every Canadian to become the owner  of  a  victory  bond.    Let  every  man  and woman in Canada buy-bonds to  the  limit of  their  ability  and  pros-  ]     The ghosts  of   'Hallawc'en, ,   well  [ drilled,   well   dressed  and   of   course  j well .behaved,   were all   gathered   in  I the Alexandria Hall on  Friday evening.     Not terrorizing    nervous    folk  but dancing Lo their amusement,they  appeared  as  fairies    and     brownies,  witches  and  Jack-o'-Lanterng.     Any  other day tliey��������� were school children  but under the direction of their teach  Miss   Herkin's  class  became witches  , with brooms for the nonce, Miss Sax-  ton's  were animated    pumpkins    of  fiery mein arid those under Miss Borden were changed by a spell into tlie  most   delightful   brownies.    All   this  was in tlie school entertainment part  of the concert held  to  make money  for the school  VTctrola.     Intermingled with the drills and dances was a  concert performance given by the music, pupils of the Misses Steede.    Naturally these items' were chiefly pianoforte solos but as-each performer had  recently  passed -the  examination  of  the  Associated  Board  of   the  R.  A.  and  R.   C.   of  Music?,  London,  there  was  both  variety (and  excellence  in  each individual exhibition.      Certificates gained by'^he-pupils in this examination were .presented during the  evening, not one,' of the competitors  failing to pass. ���������',Thc recipients were  Misses  Shirley 'S.'clclon,     V.     Stuart,  Gladys York, Kate    Parton,    Lillian  Ball,   Kitty   Taylor  and   Gwon   Tapp  with   Ace  l-laddrell  and   Harold, Mc-  M enemy.  In Lhe higher division the Misses  Nelson, King a;nid..McMonemy won dis-  .tinction. . -TIA- te'achers'.prizes, for  excellent work were won by Miss leno  King and Miss K. Parton. A feature  of>> this' annual concert now grown  into a tradition, was a toy symphony  rendered by Lhe pupils who made a  tuneful and harmonious medley of  music from toy drums, tin whistles  nightingale warblers kept in order  by the full grown piano and expert  violinist. This performance was as  popular as ever. The audience wa&  pleased to enthusiasm by Mr. Kcalh-  crstoue, who gave violin solos that  were encored with fervor. Ii. is seldom that such skilled execution with  the bow is hoard in the country.  Miss Audrey Mildmay, iho accomplished soprano, made a special visit  from Vancouver Lo give two song::-,  kindly increasing tlie number to four  aL the insistent desire of the applauding audience charmed with her line  voice.

Bates, Editor and Proprietor  FRIDAY, NOVEMBER .7-, 1919  SFCOW DAILY -TRAIN  SERVICE INAUGURATED -IN  B. (.  '"'' ' The opening' of Lhe new terminal of the Canadian Nationa.  with its daily train service marks another step in the growth an*,  progress of 'the ���������province. It was only 'when Lhe Canadian Pa  cificfouiul its terminal at what is now Vancouver did the Main  land of Lhe province begin -to do business, since which time i-  has been our pride and our boast to see grow up on the Pacific  coast mainland one of the finest provinces of the Dominion, ant.  with rapid'si rides. Now that a second daily train service hat  been inaugurated through districts not touched by Lhe first rail;  way the province should make within the next quarter ol m  century double strides with a'termius at Vancouver of a city o;  a million of people.  The new daily train service of the Canadian National gives  the south side of the Fraser .equal advantage with the north aim  with its present good-start the'progress on the south side of thfc  Fraser should- be even more rapid 'than that fo the north, as it  has now greater railway facilities.  ., The C. N. R. has been and" will be as great a factor in the  development of the province as has the C. Pi R... as we are only  beginuing'to see and find out about British Columbia. The name  of the late'Sir Richard McBride, and his colleagues will be linked  with the institution of the second daily transcontinental as much  as the name of the late Sir John A. Macdonald was with that oi  the Canadian Pacific Railway; and there are probably good old  Grits in British Columbia who today see no more necessity fo-  the second transcontinental than did the good old Grits of Ontario see.for building up into the great ''sea of mountains" ovei  thirty years ago. There are other political comparisons too-  just ask John Oliver.  GIVING SIR HEXRY A MINT ���������    ���������  The,daily paper published in the morning has been handing  out a couple of hints how that poiiticia*,-. should'handle'his department at Ottawa, in order to make i:: meet the requirements  of the province of British Columbia in particular. We sincerely hope the Sun will have more success with Sir Henry Draytoii  than this paper has had with the premier- of this province, into  whom we have been trying to inoculate a little good roads sens  for several years now. We don't seem to make much progress  However, Sir-Henry is a politician with, great business experience and has already been counted among the successful men.  The daily paper announce that Dr..Robinson, has been relieved of ..his job with, three months' pay and and a pension  It is over twenty years ago that he took the .position of superintendent of Education i'or the province ot British Columbia anC  during that length of time he has befrionded many a teacher o?  this'province,-now in the profession and many out of the profession in other walks of life, all of whom will regret to see hin  shelved by the present government. The growth of the B. C  school system required that a firm hand should control the affairs of education, but we believe the verdict of all will ever b:  that while firm, Dr. Robinson was at least fair and no teachei  ever suffered at the treatment meted out by the late superintendent of education for British Columbia. When if is considerec  that there is trouble in over half of tlr-- school sections of the  province at least once a year or more and that it finds its way  to the department of education, the position is no sinecure, especially when that is only a part of the duty cf a superintendent  Twenty years is a long time to hold such an important position.  Statistics furnished by the Finance Department at Ottawr  i'or the six months ending September 30th, 1919 show a moa?  encouraging state of affairs, even though there has been a dp  crease in Canada's total trade as compared with the same sb  months of 1918. The total value of Canadian trade, export anc  import from April 1st to Sept. 30th. 1918 was $1,087,232,880:  and for the same period in the present year $1,054,657,462 o;  $32,575,418 less. But the,chief drop was iu the value of imports  Exports fell only $11,329,805 as' compared with the 1918 totals  When it is remembered that last year the war was still in pro  gress and Canada was exporting munitions that ceased to ly  made- so soon as the armstice was signed, the decrease in exports is surprisingly low. ft is clear that our exports of a permanent character, both agricultural and of manufactured commodities, must have risen above even those of the war period.  Canada therefore has maintained a great, overseas markei  for something more than supplies/which she has an opportunitj  of ..permanently holding. But this market was only rendered  possible by tlie credits-furnished to Great Britain and Europeai  countries. Unless the Canadian people by a generous oversubscription to the :1919 Victory Loan, furnish tlie capital whereby  these credits and this vast trade can be maintained, the same  'period of 1920Will show a shrinkage that cannot be restored.  \ Governments Hire people put off the evil day as long as possible'in'inany..instance's., and while- the Dominion government  as at present constituted may think that the question of gratuities is not an important one.yet we believe the soldiers of Vancouver expressed-a thought which ���������!: put into action would settle  the matter just right and to suit the people of Canada. What  they said was something like this,' 'we will help to put this loan  over, and another one for ourselves', which means that a seventh  loan���������a. loan to pay gratuities���������would suit the soldiers and settle  the matter/ The politicians should take warning that this is  a.question that has had already much thought by the people of  Canada, and the verdict favors the soldiers' wishes.  /ictory Loan 1919 Is Bridge  Between War and Peace. '  Agricultural    and , Industrial     Prosperity  of Canada"  Depends on  -'���������   Success  of  I he   Loan.  Why is it necessary to have another  Victory .Loan? Havcyou heard ibis  juery?     Or have'you asked  it?  The Victory Loan ol this year  stands out as the bridge between war  md r>oa'ce.. The war is over. Our  boys won that.-. The reconstruct h>"  period is dawning and we at home  mist  win  that.  Much of the money that Canada  is asking for will be needed to clean  up the war debt.. 'The expenses of  demobilization were heavy, and there  is still much'of il unpaid.. Now that  our men are back, let it. hot be said  that we' repudiated tlio debt for  bringing (hem, back.  The sick and wounded soldiers still  in hospitals are expecting that Canada will care for them and tlieir dependents until they have been returned to health and strength. . The  hospital services, must be maintained  at full strength as long as there are  returned   men  needing attention.  Many men through disability arc'  unable "to return to their pre-war  occupations. The Department of Soldiers' Civil Re-establishment is doing a fine work in training returned  ioldicrs in trades and professions  .that they can earn a living at, and  is following up the training and see-  ing^ that they obtain remunerative  ���������employment. The maintaining of this  branch of reconstructive service calls  for much funds, and-the Victory Loan  will be used to pay for it as well as  the other purposes.  .Under the -Soldiers' Land Settlement Act, enough money is lent to  returned soldiers lo enable them to  buy and stock a farm., -.This money  will be' repaid at a low rate of interest. The soldier is thus given a  chance to re-instate himself in civil  life, and production' is given a boost.  Of the total amount of the forthcoming loan, '$24,000,000 has been  apportioned to finance these soldier-  farmers.  Pensions to the "disabled and dependents of oiir glorious'deatf, as well  as the authorized gratuities will be  other ' items' on the expense sheet.  These are some of the obligations  owing to the .returned soldier who  is  now  in health.  The maintaining of Canada's prosperity is an important reason why the  Victory Loan should be a smashing  success. The money is needed to  finance the credits to overseas countries so'that they may continue their  trade relations with ifs. If Canada  cannot give these credits other countries will, and then Canada will lose  all that great overseas trade that has  been the mainstay of our agricultural  and  industrial  life for so long]  As an investment Victory Bonds are  eminent. Paying 5 y2 per cent., selling above' par on the open market,  and guaranteed by the Dominion���������-  what further reason can you have  for hesitating? The Victory Loan  1919 ought to be- oversubscribed,  and all right-thinking citizens will do  their utmost to see that such'a rer:  suit is obtained.  LEVELS   CRITICISM  AT  EXAMINATION SYSTEM OF B.C.  Criticism of the public school examination system was voiced by. Dr.  J. G. Davidson at the annual meeting  of the Canadian club, held in the  Board of Trade rooms in "Vancouver  this- week. Dr. Davidson declared  the present system did not develop  the imaginations of the pupils; it  simply used their wonderful memories.  Premium   for   Pure  lived  Hams  Any snoop raiser who purchases a  pure bred registered ram of any recognized l.rced recorded in the Canadian National Live Stock records or  eligible for such registration for use  'n his own flock, and who has not  orfivlously used a pure bred registered ram shall be entitled to the annua! premium of ir'o.OO for two con-,  secutive years provided he w ill comply with the regulations specified in  Pamphlet No. \l9.    ���������  It lias boon .decided that the best  way to prove the value of purebred  rams is to help every sheep raiser  who has not previously used a pure  bred ram, to use his own flock for  demonstrating the value of this practice. There/ore the Dominion Department of Agriculture will grant  !o bona fU'l'e applicants who comply  vvilh Uie above mentioned regulations  a sum fo $5.00 annually, for two  y.:-'?irs, for each pure bred' registered  ���������shall be permitted to receive for more  than four rams.

After "considering lhe matter  the council here again felt that a  pound  bylaw .was required.  [-"rc'micr Oliver has communicated  with Mr. I'\ AV. Peters, general super-  iuicndeni'of the C. P. ft. on Lhe urgent need for a passenger bridge over  the Fraser aL Mission. Various suggestions including an overhead vehicular bridge, a "wing bridge'-' and the  planking, of   the     present     railroad  .rack, were mentioned by the Prem-  cr. but the superintendent decided  JiaL noiiG of tliem are feasible. So  ihfc ferries will continue Lo ply.

When' Lhe big power line from  S'-ave Lake to..Bellingham was built  'through Matsqui' by the Western  Power Co. a condition-of the franchise, was made by the council that  liijbL and power be supplied lo Lhe  farmers along Lhe  route.  .Financial stringency and abnormal  conditions in the war years have prevented the .company carrying out.  Lhese condilions, Lhough repeated requests have been made. Now the  people are determined to get .those  modern facilities. Tlie company, intimating Lhal revenue ' from this  source would not pay interest on the  cost of installation suggest that the  case be laid before Commissioner Rc-  taliack under the Public Utilities Aci  After careful consideration of the  solicitor's letters the council appointed a committee of the reeve and  Councillors Phinney and Aisluto take  what action they found advisable to  wardscsecuring electric light and  'power for the municipality.  Applications for the municipal as-  sessorship were received    from    the  Soldiers' Settlement Commission, but  were too late to be considered as Mr.  Stevenson was appointed at the last  meeting at.a salary of $4 00. Tax ar-  ! rears  and  current  rates  have  come  jip so satisfactorily that the collector  ! was able to report all bills and notes  1 paid off and a balance to the good.  ' The roads will  benefit by extra appropriations   to' that  extent  of  half  ', the tax arrears received.  A delegation from the School Board  met' the council to consider a joint  procedure in' planting trees, round  the' municipal hall and adjoining the  , school grounds the plan to be part oi  a scheme of memorials to the heroes  of the war.  Councillor Melander and    Trustee  Jackson were entrusted finally    with  the purchase and planting of suitable  trees at once.'    Trees will be obtained  fiom  the Aldergrove nurseries il  thev are found,to be suitable.  I      Another difficulty of less harmonious  solution ' was   discussed   by  the  two   bodies.     Sale   of  a  part  of  the  Matsqui school  grounds was     undei  way by the council, when the School  Board sent in an objection.     A previous board had requested that this  unused portion  be    sold,    and    the  council were acting on  this request.  When they discovered that the pres-  ; enf board  were unwilling to release  \ the property, the council suggested a  ���������i joint meeting, which    somehow    did  not mature.    The sale then proceeded but cannot be consummated with-  ' out the beard's permisison. The trustees suggested that the council migii>  i conclude the sale, turn over the pro-  ! coeds and give the board title to the  i remainder without expense to them,  j \\ hen both parties arc assured that  : no slight pr difference was intended  on either side, the difficulty will    be  easily adjusted.    Evidence was overwhelming that both board and council were acting in the best interests  of- the ratepayers and the present- impasse is due only to want of sufficient,  explanation.  ���������A good sign'of the progress of the  district came out in the recent board  meeting when it was decided that an  ertra room must be furnished in the  Matsqui High School to accommodate  new-, scholars. Application to the government for permission to engage an \  assistant' principal has been received  favorably and will be acted upon im-  mediately.
