Falconer was elected  chairman.     ...  Col. E. S. Johnstone, president  of the Sechelt Peninsula Board  of Trade,5 ably related events that  have lead to the forming of committees for the numerous districts that are part of the Sechelt  Peninsula Board of Trade. It is  felt that due'tb the geographical  formation of the district, the  problems and needs of each com-,  munity could better be served if  committees were formed in areas  defined by the Executive CounT  cil. At the meeting called in Pender Harbour it was decided by a  resolution that; an executive of  twelve members be, formed for  Pender Harbour and out of this  number a chairman and secre^  tary be appointed.  Mr. W. P. Falconer, on taking  .he chair, asked Col. E. S. Johnstone to give a resume of the activities of' the Board of Trade.  Roads, telephone, power, water,  and better facilities for handling  of freight have been the main issues at all meetings.;  "The Board of Trade in any  district should be the back bone  of the community," said vCol.  Johnston. "It has been shown  that in districts where there is a  board, more progress is made. It  is a known fact that the combined efforts of a number will  gain faster^recognition than those  of an individual.  "The fundamental work of the  Board of Trade is for the good of  all local industry. The Board Of  Trade spells progress because it  should be the hub for all activity  ies?' :, \  Col.    Jonhstone    stressed    the  fact that a monthly meeting is to  be held by the Pender Harbour  Committee   one   week   previous  to the Executive meeting of the  Board  of  Trade.   The   chairman:  and secretary of the  committee  are to attend the executive meet-  ing to present the resolutions pas-l-  sed at the  committee meetings.  It was definitely explained that?'  any member of the committee is:j  a member of the Sechelt Boardt  of Trade and has the right to at-jj  tend all executive meetings of th<_j]  Board of Trade. There are times!  when   members   have   been   re-fj  quested to vote.  The meeting went on record  wanting informatipn concerning  the Consolidated school, accom--  odation, transportation arid th��  urgent need of the school for thej  fall semester. A resolution wa_  passed that a larger freight shed|  was needed at Irvine's Landing  to handle the ever-increasitii  business at Pender Harbour.

THOSE who are dismayed at the  Russians' odd behaviour, in  these days can. find some comfort in Harold Nicolson's book,  "The Congress of Vienna."  In 1814,; as now, Russia was  one of a Big Four who had beaten the would-be Dictator of Europe. Russia, says Nicolson, assumed "an attitude of arrogant  secretiyeness which caused dismay to her partners . . .

Stumps have been  blasted and hauled out to a big  pile to be burned, and brush cut  and piled. The committee plans  to. continue clearing and level7  in�� the land, filling in the low  spots and pushing down the high  ones. The school board has expressed their intention of leveling lot 12 next to the club lot  and a good deal of dirt will be  available then.  Most of the work so far has  been voluntary and there have  been several substantial donations of gas, oil and machinery.

Lord Castlereagh, the British  Foreign Minister, was unpertur--  bed, and undeceived, by. all these  sinister goings on.  "The true interests of Russia/*  he wrote to the British AmbaS-)  sador in Vienna, "dictate a pacific policy." Therefore he urged  all British agents to avoid suspicion, not to credit rumors, anc.  not to allow "local cabals" agfi-  ainst the Russians to shake the  "main alliance." ,  Probably many a British Minister thought Castlereagh a naive  dupe of Czarist conspiracy. But  the peace he made endured without a major breach for a hundred  years.
