Arriving at the site "of the proposed war memorial the President of  the G. W. V. A. gave an outline of  the arrangements for erecting the  memorial. Next, Mr. N. Hill, President of the Board of Trade, endorsed  the proposals and called for the  peoples' support. The site was then  oficially dedicated by. the Rev. A.  Harding Priest and a wreath was-  placed on the draping by ladies who  had lost husbands and sons in the  Great War. An appropriate patriotic  solo was'sung by Mrs. li.

Hannah  Fraser presiding.  Important business of the meeting was to form an executive. The  | following ladies, were appointed, representing the various districts: Mrs.  M. Cook, Kilgard; Mrs. Hart, Snr.,  Huntingdon ;" Mrs. Jay Starr, Uupper  Sumas; Mrs. T. Kirkp'atrick, 'Ma'isqui  Peardonille; Mrs. ��������� Owen, Bradn'er  and Mrs. J.

P. R. ha-j  been in force for about - three elections and was never popular in Mission City after the novelty of ths  first year's' voting. And one reason  for this was the fact that it took too  long to figure-out the results. When  an election has been voted on and  the returns in, men and women are  not in a mood to wait for hours to  have it figured out as to who will 'be  elected. There are some people who  have thought that there was something in the figuring too.  It is not likely that the Mission  council will stay by the ward' system  very long, as it is , understood to be  the intention to place a by-law before  the people at the next municipal el  ection to have the "councillors elected at large at the following election  or the election of 1923.  The'P. R. system was introduced  into Mission municipality by Mr. Garfield, a Vancouver ..lawyer, and Mr.  McDonald,^ who was at that time  councillor for Ward IV. or the territory west of the Stave River, both of  these men-being now active in th?  work of having that portion of Mission municipality become a part of  the new. municipality of Stave River.  The question is this week engaging  the legislators at Victoria. |  The  election   of     school     trustees  will also be reverted back to the old.,  system.

At this important meeting the officers elected were. President, Mrs.  Duffy: vice-president, Mrs. Conway:  Secretary-Treasurer. Miss M. Seldo'n.  Other .business of importance was  the dividing up of the various districts to canvas for membership.  MR.

WALKER'S EXPERIENCE %  ON UNDERSEA BOAT  SPENT ii2 DAYS JN-GEKMAN  ,,     SUIIMARIXE   OFF   THE  SOUTH COAST OK' Sl'A IX  After three ' years' service overseas during which lie had some thrilling experiences, ami' incidentally  rose from the rank of sapper to sor-  gam-major, Captain James Walker  one of the best-known skippers in  British Columbia 'waters, is back  home, having reached Victoria on  Sunday.  'Captain Walker's1 most- exciting  tlruo was spent on board the H.S.-tf  formerly of the Sampson,' wliile tow-  Ins a refrigerator barge and machinery to the troops from England to  Mesopotamia. He left Victoria with  a draft of the Inland Water Transport section of the Royal Engineers  early in J 1)17, and, after six weeks  training in Montreal, proceeded t ���������  England on the S. S. Saturnia on  which vessel, enroute to Liverpool, a  .submarine attack was made, but  fortunately the liner escaped without  .-injury.  Left  for    Mesopotamia  Capt. Walker served In various ca^  pacifies in England, in charge of  tugs and other vessels operating' off  the coast of Great Britain. It. was iu  August^ 1917, that he was placed in  charge of the H.S.-3.  Leaving England in. the early  morning of August 28 on tlie voyage  to Mesopotamia, all went weU until  September 1.2, when the vessel had  reached a point fity-six miles south-  West'of the mouth of the Tagus, Portugal. At 4:20 o'clock-in the afternoon it was blowing half a gale of  wind and a. big sea was running.1  Without warning Captain Walker's  vessel was shelled for a period of  thirty-five minutes, and it, was only  the rough weather, and the suiallness  of the vessel that saved it from utter destruction.  After half a dozen shots had been  , fired Captain Walker sighted the  submarine about two and a half mi-  miles distant. As he had no gun on  board, the only defensive weapon served out being a rifle and 100 rounds  of ammunition each, it was utterly  impossible to put up a fight, but he  ordered full speed ahead and took a  zig-zag,/ course, thinking to evade  the submarine until darkness fell,  with the intention of picking The  crew of the tow off, and escaping to  the beach in the U.S.-3 alone.  Would Have   IJeen Target  -   The   submarine   commander,   however, seemed to anticipate this movt?  and closed in, making   Capt. -Walker  says, a very good target for the H.S.  -?> if the vessel had    been    equipped  with a suitable    defensive    wc-iuon.  The last shell fired at the U.S.-3 before the crew leftcarried    away the  port-after corner of the pilot    house,  and seeing it was useless to sacrifice  life heedlessly, Captain    Walker ordered the men into the lifeboats'.       j  After fifteen or twenty minutes in"  the lifeboats the men    saw the submarine coining toward  them  at ���������   ".1  speed and when he got close enough  up (he Hun captain ordered ihe boats  ��������� around to his bow.    Captain Walker,  being suspicious of the Hun's movements and believelng that he inten l-  ed to run them down, pulled arouuci  to the, submarine's stern.    The Hun  ordered the party    alongside    and to  their amazement  machine  guns  and  a four-inch gun were turned on them  and they were ordere to    throw    up ,  their hands.    Atrthis stage the Huns '.  took photographs of the party In the  boats and then ordered all hands    on  board of the   .underwater craft wl;h  the exception of Captain Walker and  two sailors.  Two officers from the submarine-  .with a sailor then boarded Capt.  Walker's lifeboat carrying iwo ba.-,s  of bombs and fuses and each armed  with revolvers. Orders were given  to^pull for the M.S.-3 when Cant.  Walkor and his men wore ordered to  accompany (lie Huns on board, and  were told if they started any no-j  sense they would be shot. The officers placed one bomb forward, one  aft. and one under the boilers, but  before timing them tltey inquired if  there was any liquor on board.  Though there were twenty gallons of  rum stored away on the vessel, Capt.  Waller considered their lives were  in sufficient jeopardy, without the  Huns becoming drunk, and therefore  mplir-d in the negative. Before leaving the tug, Capt. Walker suggested  that ihe fow-line should be slipped as  he anticipated    that the tuy    would  andHiey wore afraid .thai if  '.ape their "comrades on I  marine would have been made to p  the penalty, Capt. Walker ordere/;  the boat hack 1.6-the hargo therefore  they took tlie Huns off, and shortly afterward the barge also blew u)..  The entire party then boarded the  submarine which took tlie lifeboats  in tow. For the first half hour Capt.  Walker and his entire crew were left  standing on the fore part of the conning tower up to their waists In  water and tliey' began to believe t.h-.it  it-was' the Jlun Commander's,; intention finally to submerge and leave  tlieni to drown.  One of, the Hun's overheard Cap-.  Walker make a remark to that effect, but informed him that such win,  not their intention; that they were  not brutes, and they did not believe  that other U-boats were indulging in  such practises. Capt. -Walker then  asked why'the lifeboats had been  passed aft and the men were kept  standing. The reply was that the  sea was too rough, and it would be  dangerous for the crew to spend the  night in the lifeboats; therefore they  would keep the men on board until  the following,day and sort out thbo<--  who would be freed from thoce wh ������  would be detained. Accomodations  were then made for the men below,  and they were given some hot coffee!,  and black' bread. . Sleeping accomodation was cramped and they were  soaking wet. They were therefor-.!  ghul when morning arrived and they  were ordered on deck' lo find tha'  the day was bright and Ihe sea calm  ) Tlie  Prisoners.  The names and ranks of the mi'i:  were taken by the U-comninndor  Capt. Walker and Sorgt. -Thouiaa  Morrison, of Victoria, late second engineer of the steamship ICatevan. who  was the first mate,- who had1 be"u  badly wounded on the western front  and was ' only convalescent at the  time, were among the men chosen' fcv  the' commander to be held as priso .-  'ers. Capt. Walker's appeal for th.;  sick man's- freedom, however, wa.>  favorably considered by the commander, who remarked that a man who  '. had done his bit. deserved his freedom. A second engineer and a lieutenant were the only others detained  and the rest of the crew were ordered into the life-boats. The U-eoin-  mander ordered biscuits, water  a compass to be furnished them, after which they were towed close to  the shore. The men were given their  course to the mouth of the Tagus,  and told to report to the authorities  that their comrades- were safe on  ��������� the U-boat, but though they Would  be well treated.they would be a long  , time on board.  ! ���������-. Leaving the life-boats, the submarine turned' westward and"two hours  later a: Porfcguese schooner" was sighted and sunk. * Capt. ^.Walker was  p'ermitted to remain on deck to witness the blowing up of the vessel. Ho  was later put down in the after-end  of the submarine," separate from the  others, who were kept, in the fonv-  end, all sleeping on top of the torpedo tubes that were destined to  carry destruction to British i '1  Allied  vessels.   . ���������       ,  Captain Walker was on boari the  submarine for twenty-two days, during which time 20,000 tons of shipping was destroyed and ihe supply  of torpedoes' was run out, when tlie  submarine returned to its base at  Cattaro, in Montenegro, on the Ad  riatlc. ��������� ���������  It was always during the night  that the submarine got in its deadly  work, mostly between the hours of  midnight and 4 o'clock in the morning, and it was with no pleasant feeling for the British seamen on board  Ihc.y d-.i j.'Miifun    controlling  ui    sub-  plane,aft,-much agi'  v  attention was paid to this, ���������howevjr,  and (.he train proceeded en ks- way,  the Germans being as callous of, tha: r  own people as they were of their enemies.'  It was a, "five-mile march from the  Bradenburg railway station to l.'h;;  prison camp, which was reached. i\\  four o'clock in the afternoon.

It was a  real nightmare to them, and they remained su'bineregd for sixteen hours  at.the greatest depth ever attained,  while Capt. Walker "was on board before the passage was made.  One of. the most exciting times of  the trip, was the day after maki ."g  this passage.;when all hands were ordered on- deck for fresh air. There  was no fresh-water to drink, and coffee was 'the only liquid refresh men I..  The' men all took a salt water bath,  and lay down on the submarine {.:>  dry. Nearly everybody fell asleep n  the warm-'Sun, When suddenly someone yelled,"and everybody, dived belter skeltcj; jnto the hold of the submarine; which submerged just in  lime to'dodge a depth bomb' droppe >  by an Kalian aeroplane which happened to be returning fi'om a boiii'j-  ing expedition to  Pola.  Weill  to  Montenegro. f'  The submarine  was    down    about,  forty  feel'-when  the bomb'   exploded  and  almost  . shook     Ihe    vessel     to  pieces.    Two' days later another sub-  ���������marine came out and escorted the \f-  boat through the    mine fields    into  Cattaro,   where   the '   prisoners   were  kept, below    deck  in  tlie    sweltering  heat  while the    vessel     lay on     th*.  surface.    The prisoners  were    after-'  wards, transferred   from  I'he submarine to a' steam    pinnace . which tow  I hem lo a place called Castle Neuv?,  Arriving there, they  up the    side    of    a  old fort, where 'they j  were detained for four days under an  Austrian   guard,   waiting   orders   to.-;  an(* shipment   to  Germany.  The men were treated ve  ly at this fort, says'Capt. W  the Austrians had about as much use  for the Germans as the British had.  Finally orders came from Berlin    to  transfer'   the men to    Brandenburg,  Germany and  they    were put on    a.  narrow-gauge   ,.   mountain     railway  train and taken'over the    Dalmati i-  Alps into Austria-Hungary. A transfer was made to the main line, and a  day was spent in Budapest.  A Generous Man.  During the day in Budapest the  guard took, the party across the city  from one railway, terminus,to another  and a Hungarian who was taking a  three-pound piece of bacon fat home  as a special treat to his wife, seeing i  the Canadan numerals on the shoul-:  in Montenegro,  were marched  mountain Ho''an  were the tales of experiences thai  were exchanged.

'l lie prisoners soon learned f" ap  predate the advantages of an organization instituted by the British nava.'  men  for systematic relief for' newh  arrived prisoners, pending receipt o  comforts from England, which generally arrived five Weeks after notific  ation of prisoners' arrival was given  by the    Germans'.,   This    relief came  through the Red Cross Society in Copenhagen.

One patrolled the African side  Ratibon, where it was raining hard.  It was Sunday morning and people  were just going to church "-and the  party was paraded in front of them  to be jeered at.

Result of Explosion.  This warning was not heeded, and  what Capt. Walker anticipated d ,  happen. The Huns were on th';  barge when Capt.Walker was keeping the small boat alongside. The  tug swung under the barge and blew  up. Fortunately the small boat s.  painter carried away and the gay^r  caused by the explosion threw thau;  several hundred yards' without causing them injury.-  All thought of making an    escape  wan a bund on ed    owing to the    fact  that   the  submarine   was     too   closr  .destroyers,  however,  were ��������� very ac-  Itive^nd  were the terror of the submarines'.     They  would     immediately  submerge  to 300  feet    and    remain  there for hours.  Many were the depth bombs dropped  around    the    submarine    while  Capt.   Walker was  within,     severely  jarring the vessel on     several    occa-  'sions as well    as the    nerves of llu>  their    to.  Huns,  who  though  so  the approach of danger  danced with glee    when  padoes found their mark.  During the operations, the submarine picked up three captains, a Greek  captain- commanding"4 a 4.000-ton  Greek steamer and the captain of the  S. S. Polar Prince, a British vesse':  also three engineers. The Gre-^k  captain and his engineers were put  on board a fishing vessel after about  seven- days, the Italian and Britis'e  captains being detained.  Conditions   Improve.  One of (lie peculiar features of fh.1  they   were  again     paraded, and  the  same thing was .done in Berlin when  the party arrived  there.    A transfer  was made to.the local    train    which  passed   tlie   Kaiser's  palace at   Poi.s  dam. of which  the party obtained a  good  view,   .and    shortly    afterward  they arrived at    Bradenburg,    their  final   destination.     The   whole   jour  ney had    consumed six . days and    a  frightened. ;ttj half, during, all of which the prison-  to themselves jors' had to sit in a very cramped position and the    men    took    turns    at  crawling under the seat to    have    a  sleep.    The party had to put up with  the banter and chaff of the German  and Austrian trrops throughout the  journey,  the  trains    being    packed  with soldiers who were    being transferred  to the western front.  Illustrating the terror of goinjc M.  tlie western front, respecting which  so many tales have been told of Gorman soldiers, Capt. Walker relates  how one German youth after   brood-  Leaving Bradenburg by train o-  December 22', l.ftl'8". the aiuhoritic-'  were afra"id to take the released'pris  oners through Berlin, fearing tha  the revolutionary soldiers migh-  commandeer.the train and use it to  their own purposes', so a detour wa:  made through Rathenow to Warn*1  munde, on the Baltic, where the:  tinu-jwere put. aboard a Danish steamei  and  laken  to Copenhagen.  They were met by the Danish authorities and .a special staff of English officers. Five days were spen-  in Denmark, where the party wa.  treated'royally and were made guestr  of honor at numerous celebration*  The Danes told the prisoners tha*  they fully realized that the victory o'  the Allies was the salvation of their  country, as they were aware of Germany's intention to gobble them up  if the Central Powers won the war.  Reached  England.  Boarding the Danish passenger  vessel Frederick VIII., the Britishers  were accorded every comfort aril  convenience, and the party finally  landed in Hull on December 30. They  were detained only one day at the  Repatriation Camp at Ripon, and  were sent on a two months' furlough to recuperate with friends and  relatives in England.- after which  they reported to their respective  units, arid were finally sent to their  homes.
