FEBRUARY 12. 1914  NEW MUNICIPAL  ACT  ��������������������������� The Municipal Act, based upon the  /findings of the Royal'Commission on  Municipal Government which made its  report "to    the1 last   session  of the  legislature,  was"  introduced the past  ��������������������������� week in the    legislature by.. Attorneyr  .General    Bowser.   The    Act    inaugurates a new    departure   in municipal  procedure in British    Columbia,  and,  while its provisions are by no means  as stringent   as    those    of the Local  Government Board  of  Great Britain.  for that purpose the expression or  word 'male"in the Provincial Elections Act shalL be read 'male or female'; and the words 'he' and 'she,'  'as* applied to persons entitled to  vote, shall read 'he' or 'she' and  'his' or "'her'; and all alterations  necessary to carry out the provisions  of this section shall be made in' the  form ' of any document as prescribed  J in that Act."  | Where a female elector's name is  changed in consequence of marriage  after enrollment on any list of voters  it is provided in the amendment that  the registrar of .voters may amend  such list, or cause it to be amended  .accordingly. The Act\shall come into-force on the first day of May, this  year. ;'  which exercises   the strictest  control 7is a student of   men and things can  over all-municipal bodies, yet it proposes    supervision    of  all    municipal  matters by an inspector appointed by  a  municipal  department of the Government.     This inspector of municipalities, whose office shall be attached  to    the    Attorney-General's     department, shall have power to hold public inquiry  into    any  of the  business  of a municipality,    and    his findings,  upon the approval of the Lieutenant-  Governor-in-Council,  shall  be binding  upon    the    officials    of   such    muni-  . ,-' .���������������������������DIGNIFIED  DEMOCRACY  Without intending any reflection upon the' .diplomacy and general. spirit  of the ���������������������������'" men who have occupied the  high office of President of the United  States in the   past    decade, one who  cipalities.  The main provisions of the new Act  are: For    the    establishment   of    the  municipal   department;   supervision of  issue    of   civic    debentures;   appointment  of  inspector    of  municipalities;  police and    license   commissioners in  municipal districts   appointed by the  1/ieutenant-Governor-in-Council;    compulsory  audit of   municipar financesT  Municipal  affairs    to be managed  by  board of    control    at option  of electors; restriction of referendum power;  tax sales cannot    be   canceled    after  ono year; municipalities may only enter into    public   utility   field by permission    of     Lieutenant-Govnrnor-in-  Council;   local    improvements   eliminated    from   Municipal    Act; increased  powers    granted    municipalities;   proposed    by-laws   to    be posted   to all  voters;   annual    financial     statement  must  be    published;    three-fourths  of  property   owners   can    initiate town-  planning scheme.  not help contrasting    the present re ,  gime with that of other occupants of {  the White House   ,in    recent history.  President    Roosevelt   had his good  qualities, but he also possessed qualities that were not so commendable,  and made him somewhat of a despot  in the chief executive chair of the nation.      The big club    was more than  a joke."   President Taft, while a man  of   sterling    qualities   and    brilliant  suavity, if we   may    use   the expression,    proved    a   misfit   as   head   of  and the suavity   of    a   Taft, he has  dared go beyond either of his predecessors, and has taken into theWhite  House a dignified   democracy that is  refreshing    to   witness.     And be declares   straight    from   the    shoulder  that right is might, and he will have,  nothing to do with the commonly accepted   opportunism   of    the present  day.     In his dealings with Mexico in  the present conflict he has forced-the  other world powers   to 'recognize the  justice of the   position he has taken.  More recently he    has   taken a position on the question oi Panama canal  tolls that is certain to win admirers  the world over.      And it is the simple position of    right,  assumed with  the dignity of might.     In a recently  published    letter      President   Wilson  says:      ''With' regard to the question  of canal    tolls,    my    opinion is very  clear.      The exemption  constitutes a  very   mistaken      policy    from   every  point of view.      It   is    economically  unjust; as a   matter of fact, it benefits, for the present at any rate, only  a monopoly,   and   it seems to me in  clear violation of   the    terms of the  Hay-Pauncefoot    Treaty.       There    is  of course,  much    honest difference of  opinion as to the last point, .as there  is, no doubt, as to the others, but it  is at    least   debatable,    and ' if   the  j promises we make, in   such "matters  are debatable, I for   one do not care  to debate' them.     I think the country  would prefer to.let no question arise  as to   its    whole-hearted   purpose to  redeem its   promises   in   the light of  any reasonable    construction of them  rather than debate a point of honor."  And    then    Mr.   Wilson    paid   this  striking tribute to Mr. Bryan,  Secretary of State-a tribute that will be  at once    endorsed   by all   men   who  have watched from an unbiased viewpoint the policy of    Mr.   Bryan,  not  only as Secretary    of    State, but as  monitor of the people's democracy in  the United States for the past fifteen  years:  "Your reference- to    the   Secretary  of-State shows how " comnrehensively  you have, looked on.  during the last  few     months.      Not   only ��������������������������� has   Mr  Bryan's    character,    his   justice,    his  sincerity, ��������������������������� his    transparent' integrity  and his    Christian   principle made a  deep Impression' upon all with whom  | he has dealt, but his tact in dealing  with men of many sorts, his capacity  for business,. his' mastery of the principles of   each   matter   he   has been  called     upon    to   deal    with,     have  cleared away   many    a difficulty and  have given to ,the policy of the State  Department   a<  definiteness   and dignity that "are very admirable.   I need  not say what   pleasure   and   profit I  myself have taken from close association with Mr.    Bryan,    or how thoroughly   he   has   seemed   to all of us  who are associated with him here to  deserve,  not only our confidence, but  our affectionate admiration."

An. additional charge to meet  the extra cost of transportation  will be made on parcels addressed  to or posted at offices in certain  outlying districts when such parcels have to be conveyed more  than 100 miles by a continuous  stage service,  The charge on any parcel shall  not be greater than 1 cent an  ounce,  The method of finding the rate  on any parcel under the new parcels post system will be extreme  ly simple. Rate cards will be  furnished to all postmasters and'  for distribution to the public,  there being a separate card for  each province. On this card is  given the amount of the postage  chargeable on any parcel up to a  weight of eleven pounds within  the province in which a parcel .is  posted, and to all the other pro;-  vinces of the Dominion.  When a. parcel is mailed, the  postmaster sees from the address  the province to which, it has to  be carried, and a glance at his  card shows him, without making  any calculations, what the postage will be. It is not necessary  that he should know the geographical position within the 20-  mile radius, as all the information he requires is on the card.  Arrangements are being made  to put the new parcels post system into operation on February  10th. Parcels containing intoxicating liquors or explosives ar.e  expressly prohibited.

These are entitled to careful consideration, and will be welcomed by  poultry breeders.  It is explained that the reason why  one egg produces a' male and another  a female is really due to the ova of  the hen being of two kinds, one containing a male determinant and this  factor being absent from the other.  From breeding tests carefully conducted.'on scientific lines it has been  -found that^ of chickens bred from a  dozen hens the proportion erf,the sexes  in the case of each individual hen  differs from the-others, and this difF  ererice remains ' unchanged, however  the hens may be mated. This proves  not only that sex is inherited from'  the female, but that there is great  variation between different hens in  the transmission of sex.  Mr. Smart   instances/one Buff Orp-.  ington hen    that    never bred a male  bird,    while   a    number    of     other  hens always bred cockerels. ���������������������������  A' con  sideration of these facts, it is urged,  plainly   shows   that   it will be comparatively easy to produce more pullets than cockerels if a proper course  "of-selection   is     resorted to.       The  practice of ringing their chickens with  numbered rings    and "of trap nesting  adopted by many^oi our poultrymen,  will make it easy to assert positively  the hen   from _ which each was -bred,;  and breeders' should.be in"*the"*foftu-;  nate' positidn7;of ,,->being , <able   -to'  "breeds for ^sex'':-iir-.a-*manner,.prob-t'  ably-lnVer/before.Jattemptedfvf; 'If. one'  or/'more hensTare. .foundyproducing,a  hign* percentage-of- females -the"pullets'  'll������������������e> f  ���������������������������* ,   -     J^     ���������������������������"���������������������������/������������������*    * - _������������������������������������������������������*��������������������������� -v'4_  shojild' ' be': selected from 'those hens1  XhVv/ing^theyhighestjpefcentases,,7and'  these^alone. used ras a foundation' for^  new "stock."'' '.The lact is wisely em-'  phasized that 'the "deciding "sex fac-  tor" rests alone with the female,.and  the male need not .be considered in  respect to pullet, breeding.  Each year the (course of selection  must be. followed'-'"-most rigidlyf with  the fixed determination to breed 'only'  from the-best" 'for the purpose, not  overlooking ^the ' .iaying- propensities  OI* ?Ach. particular hen, and thus improving the egg production generally'  of the 'flock kept. . \     . *  'Generally speaking, the' English'"  poultrymen are"-agreed , that colony,  houses are by far the most profitable  method of providihg-sheiteFTor "the  flocks.^ The' allowing of_ flocks" of  fowl'to congregate'around' the hou'se-  doors-year-aftpr^yeurr-and-to^occupy  any old outbuilding, chickens being  hatched from immature stock at all  seasons of .the year, is mainly responsible for most of the failures .reported, and the poor grade of eggs  .and fowl sent-to market.- Since he  has adopted the colony house system,  and spread his flocks of fowl about  hisfarm ;(away_ from the house and  farm buildings) one Dorset farmer  says his stock has wonderfully improved in vigor and egg production,  whilst" the chickens raised from these  hens and moved from month to  month to fresh ' pastures;haye made  splendid growth and given-no* trouble  While other farmers have complained  of shortness of eggs, this farmer's  supply was well maintained. It is  unwise, however, to let more than 40  fowls to the acre on grass, and if  colony houses to hold about 40 are  wisely used, no loss of pasture will  be felt, "and immunity from disease  will be conspicuous if the house is  regularly cleaned out. The^house  used, 8ft by 12ft and 6ft high, will be  the average size for flocks of this  number, and should allow about two  square feet of floor space.  pie think with me, that nineteen-  fourteen will be the biggest year in  the history of Canada. Although  the country has passed through a  period of stress, every sign points to  an easing of ,the,. situation. The  banks are beginning to loosen up  and I am certain that legitimate  business will not be impeded in any  way. The branch banks are getting  word from head office that .they may  proceed cautiously: ^toward financing  legitimate propositions, and I think  thai you in British' Columbia will,  soon notice the difference. / Personally, I believe that the stringency-  was one of the 'best things that could  have happened, although it caused'  considerable' temporary embarrass-'  ment. It has driven out the wildcatter, and this alone " will. do the',  country erormous, good."

In these days of Ibsen plays with their dull dreary pea-r  eimism; of problem plays-portraying the' morbid pathology of the emotions; of  society plays with their whipped cream of forced epigram on the pulpy base of  a thin plot; and of melodrama that puts a dime novel into the dress-suit of res- .  pcctability, it is a relief to turn'to something that gives us a hearty wholesome  laugh and leaves no bad flavor in the mouth, no later regret.   Laughter is ono  of the safety valves of civilization, it is a needed vent in an age of strenuous living; and a genuine apostle of laughter is May Irwin. <   -  Her,power is her personality, her naturalness, her spontaneity; her bubbling  contagious good spirits establishing a telepathic sympathy with her audience '  which;.creates a continuous ripple'of fun and laughter that defies analysis. ; _^���������������������������  The daughter of Robert E. Campbell, Miss Irwin acknowledges that.shc'waa  born in 1802���������������������������"tho' she doesn't look it" of course���������������������������in Whitby, Ont., where she  spent her early girlhood. At thc age of eight she was a soprano in thc church choii  of her native village and sahg at every, opportunity and with the slightest provocation, as naturally as a bird sings,���������������������������without a Marchesi training. At thirteen  thc death of her father threw upon 'her and her sister Flora the duty of money-  making, and they made their debut as singers in Buffalo, N.Y.

The question of paramount interest  which was to be decided was that of  replacing the guy-pole removed from  the Salmon Arm road by the old  council, and as to whether the new  council would, stand firm for the enforcement of the City's rights, or  give way before the veiled bluff of  Manager Dobie and put the City to  the expense of replacing the pole.  Prior to thc reading of the minutes  Dr. Keith was called to give the  council some information with reference to Miss Carlson's condition. He  explained that he had been instructed  by the former council to make some  arrangements for her care with Mrs.  Johnson, with whom she came to  Enderby from the Northwest. The  rate was to be ?30 per month. He  had received letters from the Tran-  quille Sanitarium management which  showed clearly that they did not  want to take her in there, and there  seemed to be little probability of the  City being shortly relieved of the  financial burden.  The minutes of the previous meeting  were read and adopted. The opening  of tenders for furnishing the City  Hall with 20 cords of 4-foot wood  was thc first business arising out of  the minutes. The tender of A. V.  Evans at $3.50 per cord was first  opened; F. C. Duuwoodie, at $3.00,  Percy Rosoman. $3.00; and Thos.  Wilkinson, at $3.50 for green, and $4  for dry.  It was moved by Aid. Grant, seconded by Aid. Dill that the tender of  Mr.  Dunwoodie be accepted.   Carried. I  The committee appointed to report  on the matter of guy-pole removal  on Salmon Arm road, at the last  meeting, did so verbally. " They had  not been able to find the stump of  the pole left in the ground, nor any  evidence that there had ever been  -'���������������������������'dead-man" buried to support the  pole. The Constable was called on  and he���������������������������'stated that the guy-wire was  not attached to-any "dead-man" but  ran from the top of the guy-pole .to  thc trunk-line pole.  After a long, discussion, in which  the fear of legal complicatioas ap ;  peared uppermost in the minds of all  thc members, it was moved by Aldermen Murphy and Grant that the  Clerk be instructed to notify the telephone company that the City would  bear the cost of replacing a guy-pole  as thc former pole was placed unattached to any "dead-man." Carried.  The following letter was read from  Mr. A. Fulton.'  .Enderby, B. C, Feb. 9, 1914  Enderby City Council; re. defunct  Enderby Board, of Trade:  Gentlemen: I wish to bring to  your attention the fact that I hold a  receipt for $190, which the above organization still owes to me; this being a balance of a $300 loan which  was received from me in 1912.   L_alS-������������������-want to I%ce_ beforc_you_the.  cimimstanccs under which this loan  was made: In October, 1912, a petition was signed by the ratepayers  representing about 90 per cent of the  taxable property in the city askinr  the council to place a special tax on  them to raise the sum of $3,000, to  be spent by tne Board of Trade in  conjunction .with" the City Council for  publicity -puri>ot;csr TftrBoaTcTof  Trade -at that time had been reorganized and was a live institution  with about 130 members. in view  of the money being forthcoming, it  was felt that the opportunity of be-  'ng represented at thc Valley Apple  Show being held at Vernon should  not be neglected, but owing to not  having the funds on hand at that  time it was impossible to do so unless    the money could be borrowed.  A very representative meeting of  the Board of Trade was hold in the  City Hall and it was decided to accept the offer which I had made to  lend the Board $300, on the following  conditions: Mr. Packhnm was to  handle the show, giving his time  gratis, which he did to the satisfaction of all concerned. The money  which was received by him from the  sale of the apples was refunded to  me by Mr. Packhnm, being $110. The  balance it was agreed at the meeting  above referred to, was to be secured  to  me  by  a note   for    three   or   four  months at 8 per cent. This note  wis never given, and I am unaware  of a meeting of the Board of Trade  having been called or held since that  datd  I know that the City Council is not  responsible for this debt, but it does  seem to me that if ratepayers representing about 90 per cent of the taxable property were willing to spend  $3000 on advertising, they certainly  do not want one member of the community to be "stung** for $200 in  order to carry out their wishes.  Under these  circumstances,  I think  the City Council   is justified in paying this bill.  Awaiting your reply, I remain,  Yours sincerely,  A. FULTON.  The facts related in this letter were  unfamiliar to   some of the Aldermen.  After some   discussion,    Aid. Murphy  asked Mr. Walker,   a   member of the  Board at the   time,   if he could give  the Council any light on the subject.  Mr. Walker stated    that he was as  iaraiiiar    with  the    facts   as   others  present.     Mr.  Fulton had stated all  there was to be known in connection  with the loan spoken of.     There was,  however,   some    facts in   relation to  the matter   which    had not been put  before the council.     Last year, when  the 1913 council   made its appropriations for the   year,   thc sum of $800  was set aside for publicity purposes.  When   this   appropriation, was made  it was made for the express purpose  of cleaning    up   the   indebtedness incurred by the   Board,    and this balance  due Mr. Fulton was taken into  account when the   $800 appropriation  was made.      This   was not the only  account that the council would have  to deal with; there was an amount of  $250 or so due the Vernon News, and  another of $185 due the publishers of I  Heaton's   Annual,     besides     smaller  amounts,, all of   which    were covered  by last ,.year's    appropriatioa.       No  doubt,    if   the   Clerk    were asked 'he  could   produce    the    minutes   oi   one  council showing the appropriation.  'The-;minutes were produced, and by  way, of . explanation. Clerk Rosoman  said that out of this amount of $800  $230 had been used' to publish one  issue,of the Board of Trade'" Journal.  Other expenditures for other purposes  had absorbed the balance of the appropriation.  In view of these facts Mr. Fulton's  letter was laid over until the other  accounts mentioned had come forward.  Mr. A. Paul appeared before thc  council to bring up again the matter  of Presbyterian water rate, and requested a further cut in the bill disposed of at the last meeting. The  amount of the account in the first  place was $19.90, in full for the past  year together with the regulation  arrearage charge. At the last meeting the council considered they were'  not jub-tified in giving any reduction  on the regular monthly charge of  .$__ j*!-g-Pi1 ���������������������������������������������������������������������������������r.eJ-UC(i(1..the _pJJL t������������������-?A.8,_.by_,  mmmi^f^M&mmmx&mmmmmmm  r.~.

It was brought out in  the discussion following Mr. Paul's  request, that this is the first water  rate the Presbyterian church has  been asked to pay since the church  was erected, Up to two years ago,  the churches paid no water rate.  Then with the advent of church ,awn  Md flower~gardehr thT~riite7vas fixed'  the same as a private dwelling. In  the matter of thc Presbyterian church  rate, Rev. Mr. Campbell paid it out  of his own pocket up to thc time of  his resignation a year ago. Thc rate  for the past year has been charged  to the church hoard. The request  was for a reduction, without naming  any amount. It was moved by  any amount. At the last meeting  of the council the bill was disposed  of by Aldermen Grant and Dill mov-  ng a reduction to the actual charge  per month. It was moved by Aldermen Dill and Robinson that the bill  for $18 be cut in half.     Carried.  Thc water rate to the public school  was fixed at $G per month by the  council.  The clerk was instructed to pay the  electric light bills and the telephone  rate before the 15th of the month.

The brightest, wittiest and keenest of contemporary writers is Mrs, Craigie,  better known to the world of letters as John OliverHobbcs. Her specialty is human  nature; she delights to r;viseet humanity as a whole, to put somo poor struggling  emotion under the microscope of her investigation and study it as JBinet would a  bacterium. The results of her findings are delivered in epigrams, clear, crisp,  cynical at times, but always clever, bhe stimulates thought in her readers; she  irritates at times, arouses antagonism, challenges opposition, but she forces attention. The threads of her destiny unite her to the Lnited States by birth and ancestry, to England by adoption and education, and to Canada by marriage, beini;  the daughter-in-law of Ernest Craigie of Montreal. Born in Beaton in 1867,  daughter of John Morgan Richards, now one of tho wealthiest druggists in London, she came from an ancestry of four Puritan divines on one side and a line of  Tory politicians On the other, her great grandfather being a member of the Halifax Parliament long before the Declaration of Independence.  When a child of three she was taken on the usual tour through Europe, the  beginning of her many travelling experiences. At a very early age she showed  preliminary symptoms of her appetite for literature in her unsatiable reading of  the books of others, and in attempting to add her fow drops to the ocean of literature. At nine she received a prize for a story "Lost, a Dog," contributed to Dr.  Joseph Parker's paper "The Fountain," but did no serious literary work until  after her marriage. She was educated at University College, London, and took  later courses in Rome and Paris, reoeiving much of her training at the Royal  Academy of Music.  W!i. n only nineteen she was married to Reginald Walpolo Craigie of tho Bank  of England, and her brief and unhappy matrimonial experience was terminated  in 1S05 by a divoreo in which her young son was given into her custody. With  him she went to the beautiful homo of her parents, a delightful, solid, old-fashioned  mansion at Lancaster Gate, one of tho fino residential soetions of London, No  house in tlio English metropolis gathers within, its-hospitable walls a greater  number of famous people, tho dinner-parties often consisting of forty or fifty  guests and running thu spectrum of attainment in all phases, In this congenial  and inspiring atmosphero Mrs. Craigie has blossomed Into fuller power.  Her literary output, though in a doaen or more books is slight after all in  volume, but in individuality, intrinsic value, piquancy and force, have-given  thr.ir author worid fame. Mrs. Craigie is slight, of a girlish figure and a face eloquent with an inner brightness and intensity, a complexion singularly fair, boauti������������������  fill dark hair and largo black eyes.
