His re=  port to the Board follows : \  On March 10th word was received  from Victoria that on the representations of the G.W.V.A. the project Was  receiying the attention of the select  committee of the house. Word was  received from the committee that they  required further first-hand informa  tion, hence oh March'11 I left for Vic-  lr.4414. t-.^... v.!... ���������      ......

On my arrival 1 found that owing to  pressure of work by the various members of the committee that I would be  unable to make any report before  them until Monday evening, when a  meeting  of the. committee had  been  arranged for that purpose. Meanwhile  investigation   in various  quarters led4-there is s������fficit'nfc   hydrographic  data.  ,,.-..,tu.  d,dTTv..i4,v-ijTn  *u  x   -x . available we are not. sure.;   but   your  mc to the conwction  that  it was ex-  Committee regrets that a  more   c%m-  tremely doubtful whether the govern  ment would adopt any definite poiicy  in regard to the project.  The letter of the minister of lands,  dated April 25th, 1018, to the minister  of the interior at Ottawa, which was  tabled in the legislature, stated in  most definite terms that insofar as his  department Was eoucemed they did  not propose to do more than marshal!  facts concerning physical conditions  and ������tream flow data.  be granted to the Dominion authorities for such reclamation purposes  under due provincial safeguards.  In a weii-baianced statement to the  legislature on Monday afternoon Mr'.  Bowser "out it souarelv un to the <?ov-  ernment as to what their policv was to  be. The reply of the premier on Friday afternoon was that Mr. Davis,  chief of the U.S. Reclamation Service,  was on his way west, and that they  were endeavoring to get in touch with,  him; an indefinite statement that led  nowhere.  This statement by the premier ;is no  reflection on his sincerity in the matter, but simply indicated that np to-  that time the policy of the government  was still not.jn concrete form. Doubtless he was waiting for the report "of  the select committee which was tabled  in the house on Saturday afternoon  and recommended as follows:   '"  1.

Biker of the water rights branch/made  in 1917, which has just come to light,  but which,/'ho doubt, up to a short,  while ago had considerable influence  with the ministers, is quite unfavorable to any possible successful solution  of the reclamation of these lands.'stat-  ing also, in most definite terms the existence* of an engineering problem impossible of economical solution..  These unfavorable conclusions are,  however, altogether discredited by the  final statenieut in the report, that the  engine  .rinMOk*  the  tiiiiie r.c.i'  egrefe  plete investigation has not been made  as such'lands developed would prove  ideal for soldie^;setlL*���������j-;iei"2t..^We strong  ly urge that the Government consider  immediately the advisability of arranging wvith the Dominion Government, and the Government of the  United States, the appointment of an  International Board of Engineers... to  flnaiiy decide upon the most economical and practical somtion of" this  problem".      " ���������'���������������������������������������������    '���������   ;     " i "-**���������  T'ne individual members of the select  committee were alU I feel saf<3, in saying, in favor of ti; coneesslop fit .'She  lands to "the Dominion Gov^ryinent  for reclamation purposes., biit^ inas-  jnuch as this meant banding o'ver^to  the Dominion of a valuable provincial  asset, conservatively placed' at/ four  million dollars, it 'was not within  their sphere to make any siich^ rectfm-  mendatioti. It is snggested. however,  that following the- report of the select  committee a resolution might'be*-sub  milted to the legislature an'd which,  on request.' I drafted in the-fedlowing  terme: -'*������������������*���������  Wherns there are iipproxiniateiy  35,000 acres contained m the Koote'ri-  ay \ alley bottom lands in Idaho an 1  a similar area in British Columbia,  subject to annual inundation..  And Whereas the reclamation- of  these lauds from overflow has be.en  investigated by the Province of British Columbia and the Reclamation  Service of the United States of America. .-���������...  And whereas the principal works  necessary for the reciaiiiaUon of these  lands will have to be undertaken on  navigable waters within the Province  of British Columbia.  And whereas to provide for the  proper working out of drainage plans  by Canadian and United States Engineers, the proportionate assessment of  the lands'proposed to be reclaimed  and benefited in the two countries,  and the construction of reclamatron  works, it will be necessary to formulate a Treaty between His'Majesty in  the right of the Province of British  Columbia and the United States of  America. Therefore be it resolved  that the Goyernnienttake into immediate consideration the advisability of  urging upon the Dominion Government the formulation of such a Treaty  and of granting to the Dominion Gov-  eminent a concession of these innn-  datOd la lids in this Province I'or the  purposes of Kccl-iination.  i  .

It will be pleasing to all concerned,'however,to know  that the conclusions most unfairly arriyed at in this report aro not substantiated by more eminent engineers.  A careful review of the -whole situation led me unequivocally to tne conclusion that no definite policy would  be adopted by the government, or  could, perhaps, under nil the circumstances' be expected np to this time. I  pointed out to the select ifommittee  that all the avenues along which the  government had carried out investigation led them up to the Dominion government. The international aspect of  the project; the fact that the bulk of  the works necessary for reclamation  would have to be undertaken on navigable and boundary waterways;' the  Indian lands; the possible solution of  the problem to some extern, by consideration of (he scheme iu conjunction  with the drainage of the upper Colum-  , bia Valley lands* within thc railway  ��������� belt; the effect.the proponed reclamation works wonld have on the lower  Columbia River in the slate of Washington,   were all  matters with which  Erickson school scholaas contributed  $1.85 by.way of a freewill offering to  the Creston Red Cross work for the  month of February.  Roy Telford ;got back on Sunday after* a week's absence on a trip to Victoria. ��������� - ��������� "  'Sapper W. Truscott arrived home  from Ottawa.

Mrs. MeKelvey and family are numbered among Creston's residents. They  moved on   Monday���������into   the   Quain  nQa.elc.ni.tx.  Mrs. Percy Adams of Cranbrook  was a week-end visitor with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Attwood.  Spring roadwork operations commenced this week with the spreading  of several, loads of gravel on the low  spots in the road between here and  town.    .-.    Sympathy goes out to Mr. and. Mrs.  Eelsey in the loss of an infant'daught-  ter on Thursday last, the wee girl having just arrived the day. previous.  Mrs* Kelsej*-, we are pleased to hear, is  recovering nicely.  Erickson is destined to have a. new  family added to their population in, a  few weeks through-the saie of.. Henry.  Hamilton 16-acre ranch to J. J..Hand-  ley of Blairmore, Alta., who will take  possession very shortly. The family  includes five children and  should   find  the Ham iltoii  place  property. Mr. and Mrs. Hamilton intend moving back to Alberta. They  are quite old-timers here and their re-  movel will be regretted bv a host of  .good friends;  proposal was, placed,   as weir as   the  members of. the opposition,   were   uri-  tbe day  amnions in their support of th  of the resolution.    Later   in  views with the premier, and members  of the executive, at which the "assurance, was given him, and which he  4mnded on to me, that before the leg  islature rose a message would-be  brought down from the lieutenant-  governor urging upon the Dominion  government the appointment, of a,n  international board of engineers ,.in  conjunction.with the government.of  the United States, and granting to  the Dominion.the concession., of' the  K.poteiiay Flats., for the ', purpose of  Reclamation.  In a final summing up with Mr.  Keen late on Saturday night he was of  the opinion that now "the ly'iatter  might well be left in his hands for  such final adjustment, as under the  circumstances might bo necessary,  and thereupon 1 left,* Victoria that  night.  It might, be said that in urging the  adoption of such a policy by the government there is represented, a complete reversal of the policy heretofore  recommended by the Kootenay people  in tbis matter, but it will be remembered that the boards'of trade, when  they first took up this project years  ago, always made their representations to Ihe Dominion government.  The provincial government'' has  carried the investigation to a stage  wherin the project appears to be  clearly within the sphere of the  Dominion government, and the premier, undoubtedly will show the sincer-  *. 0 I .   !     - .-..  ...4.,.* ������.������.,..

This old woman is called   "Baboush-  ka,"    thc grandmother of thc Russian  revolution.     She  has  spent about  40  years in prisons or Siberian exile  for  political offenses under thc regime of  thc czar. She was brought home from  Siberia after thc revolution of March,  1.917, and   was    received in Pctrograd  with  demonstrations  of popular     enthusiasm,  tho. echoes  of which  swept  around thc world.       She.    is again   a  fugitive from her own country. There  were reports that she had been murdered by thc Bolsheviki.    It was not  due.  to   their   forbearance     that      the  story was untrue.    She was iu biding  for two months in Pctrograd and then  for six months in Moscow  and    was  finally spirited by    long detours  and  underground railway across thc Urals  into Siberia, in much the same  nian-  .'.c.i   that     hunted     political  offenders  used to flee    in the days of ihe czar.

Thc following account of  Manitoba's  progress,  taken  from  thc  Winnipeg Tribune,    is    characteristic  of  thc progress  of the whole  of  the  Canadian Prairie.  West in this industry.  "Six years ago Manitoba was a butter importing country. Today the  province is in. a position to export  approximately 4,000,000 pounds of the  finest butter in the world, and the  prospects arc,- I.,. A. Gibson, provincial dairy commissioner asserts, that  in a few years Manitoba will become  one. of the great butter producing districts of tbc world.  "The growth of the. dairying industry has been phenomenal, as official  figures indicate.  ""In 1912, in order to meet domestic  requirements, 55 cars of butter, aggregating 1,120,000 pounds, had to be  purchased from eastern Canada or. thc  United States. That year local dairies  produced nearly 3,000,000 pounds of  creamery butter, and 4,333,905 pounds  of dairy butter.  "About that    time    thc    provincial  government   started   a   campaign     in  favor of mixed farming. Thc agricultural areas of the province, especially  in thc north and south, arc essentially  well suited for    this class of production.     Efforts were made to  cncour-<  ago    farmers    to increase their cattle  I herds and to enter more largely into  I the business of producing cream and  .rUd ! l-uuer.   than   beef   for     the   slaughter  house:?.  '"For two or three years little head-  wao was made.   Tt: must lie admitted,  The Experience of the United States  Not Very Satisfactory           That  Mr.  McAdoo,  the  former director-general of railroads, missed his  guess as to tbe outcome of a year's  operation of the railways by tbe government to the extent of at least $800-  000,000, is pointed out by the Railway  Age, in ah editorial in ils current issue.     "Thc  former  director-general,"  thc Railway Age says, "continues to  advocate   a   five  years'    extension  of  the present systcm of railroad operation and to make predictions regarding the results that would be gained.  The doctrinaire proponents of public  ownership   arc   still     advocating   this  policy    and making    glowing predictions   as   to   what   would   bc   accomplished.     On December 9,  and  again  on December    14,    1917,    just     two  weeks  before  government    operation  was   adopted,   S.   W.   Brookhart,     of  Iowa,   advocated  government  ownership of railways  at a hearing of the  Ncwlands  joint    congressional   coin-  mit-tce in Washington.    He estimated  thc savings in operating expenses that  would bc   effected  at  ������400,u00,000    a  year.  "On January 19,   1918.    and    again  on January   21,    three  veeks after  government operation was adopted,  Director-General McAdoo gave bis  views to thc senate committee on  interstate commerce in Washington. He did not express such  boundless optimism regarding thc  results of government operation as  Mr. Brookhart and others had expressed. Pie did, however, make the  following statements:  "So I hope that very large economies may be practiced. How far  thcy will be offset by increased cost  of .material and increased cost of  labor I    do    not know,    but perhaps  one hand  wash the other.

(Senate Committee Hearings,  page 849.)  - "Mr. McAdoo made these statements, knowing bc was going to~op-  erate the railways under war conditions. It will bc seen that be did  not refer to any possible advance of  rates,  either  freight or passenger.  "Now, what was thc actual outcome? There was only a small increase in the amount of traffic handled during tbe year. Nevertheless, tbc  advance in operating costs in the  eieven months ending with November  1918, so 'offset,' and, indeed, so utterly overwhelmed and annihilated the  'economies' effected, that opcratin ',  costs in these clever, months on the  class 1 roads were $1,004,924,864  greater than in thc same months of  1917. When the December figures are  available thcy will show that thc increase in expenses on tbc class 1  roads during tbc year was at least  $1,100,000,000, and when the figures  for all roads are available thcy probably will show- a total increase in operating expenses of at least $1,230,-  000,000.  ' "The increases in expenses came  so fast that contrary to bis obvious  expectations, Mr, "McAdoo ���������������������������"���������s o1->'i"--  ed. to make large advances in both  freight and passenger r������itcs. These  advances iu . rates yielded increased  earnings of-about $600,000,000 in tbc  six months July-December, inclusive,  during which the}* were in eftecl. The  increase in expenses wiped out the  $100,000,000 margin with which, as  Mr. McAdoo told the senate committee, hc began; wiped out the $600-  000,000 increase in earnings due: to  advances in rate's, and left tbe government with .a deficit of $700,000,000  from the year's operations.  Taking into account thc increased  earnings derived from tbc advances  in rates and tbc deficit incurred, it  will be seen that Mr. McAdoo missed his guess as lo the final outcome  of the year by at least $800,000,000.  As to the sage, Mr. Brookhart, from  Iowa, when wc add the reduction in  operating expenses which hc anticipated to the. advance in operating expenses which actually occurred, we  finel that hc missed bis guess by cjver  $1,600,000,000.  "In view of thc. disparity between  tbe predictions of the advocates ��������� of  government operation of railways  and the actual results of the country's first year of government operation, wc should think that thc public might be disposed in future lo  pay less attention than it has in the  past to the views and prophesies of  tbc advocates of government operation, and to give more heed to thc  information furnished to it and thc  opinions expressed to it by persons  who know something about: the. railroad business."

There  arc also eighty-four consolidated  schools in operation in the province,  and preliminary stops have been  taken to largely increase this number  immediately.

Soldiers en Farms  Winnipeg, Man. ��������� Immediate re-  , lease of all soldiers and sailors in  Canada who are required on Manitoba farms, is demanded by farmers of  the province. A strongly worded resolution to this effect was unanimously passed at the Union of Manitoba  Municipalities' convention, Winnipeg,  recently. Hon.

But  there was little material in the impression given-by tbe unprecedented  spectacle in the North sea. Jtt was  mainly spiritual.

The Creston Review is to be congratulated upon entering its eleventh volume, having passed safely
through ths dangerous joumalietie-
teething stage, as if it were, and
how in common with tlie rich and
fertile valley for which it stands
���sponsor, stands a good chance of be=
coming a very prosperous publication indeed.
It isjfco 0. F. Hayes that particular credit is due for the success
that has been achieved by the Review in the past five years, and, in
fact, because Creston has a paper
at alt Mr. Hayes took hold of the
Review est a time when it w.as a
wobbly journalistic proposition, and
in spite of every conceivable drawback such as war and other conditions, has built the paper up until
as a local proposition it is hard to
heat it anywhere in the west, and
more particularly with reference to
its utterances in regard to its own
particular bailiwick, the Review,
whenever weighed in the balance
jte never found wanting. Long life
to it and increasing prosperity to
the Kootenay Garden of Eden
whose interests it so ably stands up
for.���Kaslo Kootenaian.

And there are many other equally likely suggestion* -to* come forward. For the present the local
G.W.V.A. is neutral iaa this connection though, doubtless, when approached they will be willing to
make suggestions as to a form of
memorial that would be of benefit
to their organization and possibly
serve other useful purposes as well.
The Valley did itself proud in
the genuineness of the first welcome
home reception on the 17th. The
attendance at Weduesday night's
memorial meeting should be equally
generous and enthusiastic. With
an enlistment of almost one in ten
of our population thet. Valley would
be shamefully remiss in failing to
provide some fitting memorial
wherewith to keep green the memory of those who rallied so readily
to overthrow the common  enemy.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have
with us on Wednesday evening
nest, in Mercantile Hall, ths matter
of some form of a memorial to the
hundred and more men who served
from Creston Valley in the great
When the wooden tablet opposite
the Batik of Commerce, which at
present serves as a reminder of
those fallen in battle, was erected
one and all agreed that that sort
of memorial would suffice until hostilities ended, but when peace came
something   really   worthy   of   the

The matter of erecting a memorial more in keeping with such a
good cause will occupy the attention of Wednesday night's gathering, which it is confidently hoped
will be largely attended.
Just how far the gathering will
proceed with the project ie, of
course, up to those attending the
���earnon. Granted a decision is arrived at to proceed with the erection of a, me in or is. I we believe thc
next step would be to name a small

The presentation of statistics to
provincial works engineer Ramsay
last week to show the quite heavy
traffic handled by the ferry at the
Reclamation Farm���a traffic that
would certainly seem to justify the
erection of a new scow to handle
the business, as weli as abundantly
demonstrating the need of power of
some sort to operate the same���
gives opportunity to again call
attention to the request of a majority of the residents across the river
to the desirability of transferring
the location of the ferry to a site in
the  neighborhood  of   Goat   River
i : j	
A couple of years ago trouble
was taken to measure the distance
that would be saved travelers if the
move was made, and our recollection is that the distance saved on
the round trip Would be not less
than a mile and a half.
Following these measurements
an investigation of the ferry matter
was made by the then provincial
engineer, Mr. McPherson, who
found no fault with the proposed
new location, nor was he inclined to
believe thaf the removal costs would \"
be   excessive.    Bnt   at   that time
public works of any- sort and he
decided that in view of the then
more limited ferry traffic removal
would have to stand over till a
more convenient season.
In the face of the traffic figures,
covering    but    seven   months���as
shown last week���and the prospect
of a new barge being built, it is to
be hoped the government will not
lose sight of the desirability of tne
ferry move.      By building the new
scow at the new location the much-
talked-of    ferry-removal    expense
would   bo very largely eliminated.
With the taking over of the fiats
hay-cutting privilege by the Farmers' Institute, and with tho already
conceded largo hay areas across tho
Kootenay for the whites to operate
upon, the prospect is that within a
vur.y .shot-fi timo instead of 500 ions
of hay to haul the quantity may bo
easily double that figure.
In cold weather or on bad roads
the saving of even a mile and a half
ou the haul of oven that amount of
hay alone wouid moro than justify
the change under the old order of
thingH. With tlio construction of
a new ricow iu prospect thc transfer
should lie made -the new site on

The Auditoriuu.rwas jammed to the
doors on Fi-idaviiliight, 'the   otjiiasion
being thc pref^iifatipn of the   oTiartic-
ter sketch, Aimt^ysan's Visit.,  under/
Presbyterian Ludfes* Aid" auspices.   As
the title would indicate tbe   play is   a
domestic comedy enacted in the home-
of Mr. and Mrs. John Henry Tibbs, a
country      cross-roads     couple     who*
move into   the   city,   and   with   two
mai-rinfteable daughters break ijljto so-,
i.iety on a rather scanty   income:    At
about   the,   peak   of   their     fihancisil^
troubles and about the time   at   least
one of the eligible daughters  is   sn    a;
fair way to land a very desirable   husband, Aunt Susan   arrives on an   un
expected visit. She is of the old school
of rural womanhood, whose antiquity,
along every line, and more   especially
her determination to   see   everything
and meet everyone, and discourse with
them   after   the homely   but   honest
fashion of Pepper's   Corners,   creates
no end of amusement and   much   em.
harassment   for     her    relatives rahd
others who move in less domesticated
circles. : .V ���'-. - :'
Tbe success of the, piece-depends almost entirely on Artiit"Susan, and thV
ladies were fortunate in haying Mrs.
F. Kose to play the title role. She-was
right at home in every- phase of a
heavy and exacting part. Perhaps she
was at her best in extolling the virtues of sundry remedies  for   the   ills

neyer a "semblance of the burlesque in

boon'companion in Mrs. Tuggs as taken by Mrs. HoOden. Both were of the
.school with a relish for kitchen topics
o^ conversation. Mrs. Hobden was
��� fine and in a part that was .all too

evening's honors with Mrs. Rose in

It would, indeed, bc the height of  foolishness to close our eyes to the  self-evident fact tluit such unrest is  prevalent in many quarters. Rather,  it is thc part of wisdom to squarely  face the fact and turn attention to  the consideration and bringing into  effect of measures designed to settle  ihat unrest. Ignoring it,, and failing  to provide a remedy, will lead to  ".rouble and invite disaster.  Canada has . not been confronted  with, great strikes such as swept over  the British Isles and occurred in  many" centres in the United States, but  even these great industrial upheavals,  which mean loss not only to both cm-  .plcjycr .and<ernployce bnt to the nation  at'large, may result in Canada unless  great care is exercised and ail classes  in . the community arc prepared to  ...adopt a "give and take" policy and  meet each other in a spirit 'of conciliation prepared-to accept fair nnd" just  compromises.  Whatever may have been the attitude of capital and employers in  the  past, there can be little doubt that one  r. of the outcomes of the Great War has  .  been a recognition on their part that  in the new order of things" that must  W future prevail,  the  man  who  toils  with hand and brain, whose one great  asset in  the  world of. business is his  strength and ability to work, must receive    adequate    compensation,     and  must "be accorded' proper     working  conditions, including reasonable hours  of  labor,  provision   against     sickness  and  old age, and better living conditions  for  his  family.

Frequently, these organizers in their ignorance  of local conditions insist on impossible demands and trouble-results. In  an even larger number of instances,  they are not so much concerned about  thc local situation, but are using it  merely as a lever, regardless of thc  true interests of thc local worker, to  create a situation to their liking which ;  they can use as a club in some other  part of Canada or in another country.

"When I was coming down in the  train  from  Ottawa this  afternoon,   I  thought  of  you  boys  and   the  work  you are doing, and it brought back  my own school days. I first started college in Toronto, my family     having  moved there when I was li Gr 12.    I  was a day pupil at the college.   I did  not believe in work, however, and I  did very  little  studying.       My  nickname  was 'Banty.J      I  indulged     in  numerous ecraps, and spent most ot  my  time  after  school   hours     doing  the thing I  should have  done when  school   was   in.     At  the   end   of   the  year a  report  was  sent   to  my  parents,  and  I   think,  without boasting,  that was thc worst report ever written about any boy.   At the end of the  report was a note, to *he effect that  if I did not return to the college at  the  beginning  of the  next  term,  the  principal could get along without me.  I think perhaps hc was right.    I was  humiliated and ashamed    of    lnyscll,  and I believe everybody knew 1 was  of nc* particular use.  "I was sent to another school,  where my record was not known, foi  which I was thankful. I there fell  into the hands of a tutor who,  though a good teacher, had a very  violent temper. lie encouraged us  when he was uot abusing us. If a  fellow showed inattention he was  likely to hr*- hit on the head with a  ruler; but the first words of encouragement I ever received en tiie from  that man. He told me I might  amount to something, which war,  news to me���������1. had never heard it  before; iu any event he gave me an  insniralion to study, so ��������� worked,  and the more I worked, the more I  reiili/ed bow valuable it was, which  fact I continued lo appreciate as I  grew  older.  "I never saw a boy or a man who  got anywhere' if he did not work."  went on Mr. Beatty. "I know you  boys have given tip u great deal to  take on these extra studies, but none  iof -.'on *"'d) ever reerr-t it.

He  apparently astonished the house when  he gave the statistics to show that the  war had cost 161,000,000,000 marks.

The first is honesty, thc  second courage, and the third modesty.      Without courage  one can not  000 in 1918. Thc minister explained  that there had been a steady decrease in expenditures 5ir.ee the signing of the armistice.  The minister condemned tlie waste  j throughout the war and characterized  thc war  finances  as  "a program     of  j desperation."    lie said that the    sol-  go very far in this world.

Every man's  hand is against the. man who shows  he believes himself better than others. When I was a youngster, my  father, who was a very wise man, used to. say: 'Never think you .arc better than anybody else, but always  think you arc just as good.' Modesty is a quality I suppose I should  apologize for mentioning, for it has  become very unpopular and is now  almost obsolete; nevertheless, it is  one of llic finest qualities a boy or  man could have.
