They took  the seats reserved for them amid  the cheering of the toys and the  music of the piano. Then each  one of them, beginning with the  youngest, Eddie Grant, gave a'  short spaech.' They were followed by Mr. Gibson who, in his  inimitable style, urged others'to  follow the example of these young.  men.  He being a Methodist minister,  and an expert at raising funds,  was selected to take up the collection, which he did, .wj.th.the  result that $20 was obtained.     -:  The floor had'been ^cleared beforehand and the number and  kind of games that followed ai d  in - ���������which-' old and'-young took  part, were so many and varied*  that ye scribe will not attempt  to report them. Mr. and, Mrs.  J. W. Macdonald of the Bella  Coola Hotel, brought coffee and  cake for everybody, after which  a circle was formed, with the  singing of Auld Lang Syne, the  National Anthem, and ringing  cheers for the departing guests.

They were not as many  as expected, according to the  government and their supporters.

Coining Money Out of Our.  *; JDistress.  : . ,:The government at Ottawa in  .dealing with' the multitudinous  ' affairs cropping out of the situa-  * lion created by the war, adheres  - strictly to the usual governmental practices of. squandering the  people's money:  . The governmental officials are  constantly appealing to the patriotism of the .people at large to  .make sacrifices to defend the  liberties of the Empire-and the  world, but .they are at the same  time, instead of giving a> good  example by self ' sacrifice and  self denial, using the .country's  distress to;make money for themselves and friends.  The general public has passed  ��������� through and is still suffering the  effects of an unusually severe  financial depression, and it should  be expected that patriotic men  in charge of governmental affairs would recognize this fact  and be as economical and careful  in the expenditure of the public  funds as possible.  But we are sorry to say that  from all we can learn, officials  and men having business transactions with'the government in  these times are reaping even  larger profits than usual from  their transactions and the positions they-hold.  Those manufacturers who are  engaged in furnishing munitions  of war-for Canada and Great  Britain for instance, are realizing  enormous profits, and our government in order to* giva them a  still better chance to increase  their earnings raised the duties on  imports seven per cent, of which  these patriots in their endeavor  to enrich themselves out of the  country's distress quickly availed  themsel ves by raisin g their prices.

There has been a feeling abroad  that the piping times of peace  and prosperity-prevalent before  this great war had a tendency.to  destroy the heroic elements" in  the human nature.    Weused to  read with admiration of the great  deeds of the heroes of the past  with a feeling" that this age could  not produce anything like them.  'It is gratifying to learn that  times of peace-and goodwill fosters the heroic qualities in men  just as much as turbulent times.  - - This" war has brought out examples of courage and self-sacrifice in the face of certain death  which has never been surpassed,  in history. . The following incident will bring the point of our  contention home to the readers J soldiers England  had; even  as  were drowned and thus gave  their lives freely that the righteous cause their country was defending might win. It is illus-  trations like this" of devotion to  our land and bur cause which  should inspire us all with a desire  to make sacrifices in the same  cause. ,  o     o     o     o     o  A  Tribute From United  States.  The Sunset Magazine, the leading American magazine on the  Pacific Coast, contains in its No-  vember issue an ..appreciative  article entitled: "The'Blood Of-"  fering.of British Columbia," by  Arno Dosch. .  He tells that" he .came up to  British Columbia toseehowthe  people .took, the war. 'He had  seen a good deal of the Canadians in .England and.in France,  he knew,them to, be of the besc  the Bella Coola and; Skeena rivers  into the most remote districts  and find -empty cabins with a  scrawl across' the  door 'owner  gone to war.'"  He then tells of the bravery of  our troops at the battles in France  and Flanders, with their terrible  losses, and how, for instance, an  illustrous family like the Tup-  per's is in dangej of becoming  extinct because of its losses in  the-war.  The losses of the Canadians at  Neuve Chapelle rivalled the losses of- the British during the  whole Crimean campaign.  He then tells of how the first  Canadian contingent was "snubbed on their arrival and stay in  England  because  of  tlieir un-  military ways.   It hurt, but when  at last the Canadians came to the  battle "they showed them" and  the scorn of their  brethren in  arms was turned into admiration.  This accounts for the almost excessive praise  the  Canadian  soldiers have  received  for the.  bravery shown when in action.  British Columbia has so far given.  a good account of herself.

Rumors of impending'provincial election have, been in circulation since early last spring; but  so far they have all been found  untrue. After becoming somewhat acquainted with the political situation in British Columbia,  we have personally had very little  faith in the truth of these rumors.  There has been one reason so  far for this our scepticism; and at  this time another is added to it.  . In-the first place we reasoned  the government hesitated "to  take the plunge'' because they are  afraid of defeat, and like Micaw-  ber are waiting for something to  turn up that may give them a  fighting chance; or, in the zb-  sehce of any such luck, to sit  tight and draw the emoluments  of office as long as the law will  allow them,.

This law has long since  j been settled by the courts in both  j Britain and America.  |     V>)    A liquor license is simply  | a special permission granted for  j the purpose of supplying the supposed wants of the community.  It is only granted  for one year,  and prohibition will riot take it|  away  during that  period.     At  Ithe end of the year there is no  license to talk about.    The law  ! gives no guarantee to any liquor-  | selier that his iicense shall be re-  , newed   when   the   year   is   up.  Everyone of  them knows  this,  while the advance of public sentiment and the rapid growth of  the prohibition   movement   has  given them clear warning that  the trade is doomed.    They entered the trade being fully aware  of these facts.     They gambled  in futures, that they might get-  rich-quick at tremendous cost to  society.    The rest of us must not  be burdened if their license to do  this is not renewed.  (3) By prohibition of the liquor  : traffic government does not destroy property, or take private  property for the public use. It  simply prohibits private parties  from using their property for the  injury of the public. For the  drunkard-makers to claim compensation for the tools which have  been injuring the public, because  ihoy are prevented using the  tools for that purpose, is absurd.  On such a principle the slave-  traders should have been paid by  the British government for slave-  dhows, manacles, whips, etc.,  which were rendered useless by  the abolition of the slave trade  in 1S07.

"Never use, or try" to' use,  powder that has been on hand  for a considerable time, or that  shows by the wrappers that it  has been subjected to varying  degrees of heat. r  "Powder that has been frozen  shouldinot be thawed unless for  immediate use.
