A Number of Local Persons Gome to Grief for
a Contravention of the
Control Aot
There have been stirring limed ii>
this city tjsis week in liquor oircles
not connected witb tbe government's
eystem of distribution.
On tbe 5 o'clock train last Siiur-
day afternoon tbere arrived in the
city three or four liquor board detectives, or "spotters," wbo bad
previously visited tbe city during
tbe Christmas holidays, when, by
representing themselves as commercial travellers, tbey bad obtained
entrance to places where liquor was
being sold in contravention uf the
liquor act and tbus secured evi
deoce lhat tbe law was being
violated bere.
On the strength of this evidence
warrants were issued at tbe coast
(or the arrest of Pete- Thompson of
Province hotel, James Reeder of the
Russell, and Al Traunweiser of the
Yale. Tbe arrests were madejimme
diately on tbe arrival in the oity of
the detectives. Bail wai fixed in
each at $3<j00, whicb was furnished.
Mr. Johnson.a cook in Bland's botel
at Cascade, was arrested on the same
charge, and be was also given bis
liberty pending tbe trial for the same
amount of bait  .
Simultaneously witb thet serving
of the warrantee raid for contraband
liquor was made on lbe hotels by
Cnief Constable Fraser of Greenwood, Constable Stewartof Midway,
Constable Killam of this city and
tbe local chief of police. Tbat night
tbey found a small quantity of
whiskey in tbe Russell botel, half a
doien bottles in the Province, and,
it issaid, about forty cases in tbe
Yale. Tbe search for liquor was resumed on Monday, and it has ap-
parently been going on up to tbe
present time. On Monday the officers found tbree or four bottles of
rum at Peter Hansen's house, and
quite a haul was made from Mr.
Ross' ranch. The confiscated liquor
has all beeu stored in the court nou.e
and will eventually be shipped Jo
tbe coast. It is said to represent
a cash value of $3500.
Tbe trial of tbe parties charged
with selling liquor in violation of
the liquor control act wae set for 10
o'clock Monday morning before
Magistrate McCallum in the police
court, but an adjournment was taken
until the following day, when another twenty four-bour adjourn
ment was made.
Wednesday morning at 10 'clock
the cage, tbat of Johnson of Gas
cade, was called, and daily sittings
were held until tbis afternoon, when
the end of tbe docket waa reached
and the judge rendered bis decisions
in all tbe cases. Barrister Piucott
of Rossland appeared for tbe accused and Mr. Clayton of Penticton
for the crown. Tne only witnesses examined were the detectives for the
prosecution, the defence refraining
from bringing local witnesses into
the casos.
Johnson, Reeder and Thompson'
were found guilty as charged, and
the minimum penalty of six
months' imprisonment was imposed.
An appeal in these cases, has been
taken to the county court, and it is
expected tbat they will come up before Judge Brown on the 10th prox!
Bail bas been fixed at $1000, in each
case,  and  tbis amount has been
fnrniHhed. The esse against Traunweiser was dismissed, owing, it is
paid, to a technical error having
been made in the warrant.
The owners ofthe Yale and Prov-
ince hotels, and Megors. Hansen and
Rose, charged with having liquor
on their premises, were each SB-
sensed the minimum fioe of $50.

In this connection Hon. J.'D.
MacLean, acting premier, issued the
following statement:
"As a result of the findings of
Magistrate H. C. Shaw following
charges alleging malfeasance in office and other grave improprieties in
official conduct in connection wilb

board, of whicb Dr. Baker was

wbjih he was suspended pending
tbe announcement of tbe results of

"While Dr. Baker has been the

of Magistrate Sbaw completely ex

in the administration of the game

"Wbile his administration has not
been wholly above criticism, he was
entitled to British fair play, aod as
is the custom in police and othei
branches of tbe provincial service,
wben the suspended officer is exonerated, he was entitled to reinstatement.
"On receipt of his notice of rein
statement, Dr. Baker immediately
tendered bis resignation as chairman
of the game conservation board,
and as directs* of the British Columbia patriotic and educational pictures. In bis letter of resignation
he says:

Pressure of Afr at
Ceiling of World
Lieut. J. MacCready, bolder of
tbe world's altitude reoord, is pre-
paiing to fly to the ceiling of the
world—tbe altitude at wbich he estimates bis body will explode.
MacCready, unsatisfied witb bis
flight record of 40,8000 feet, has revealed tbat be is building a supercharger to carry bim 55,000 feet into
tbe air. Before be reaches tbe top of
tbe world bis body will explode like
a balloon because of the lack of pressure, MacCready believes.
"Tbe importance of tbe revelations expected justify the experiment, regardless of tbe consequences
to myself," be said.
Wben be explored the 40,000 foot
level recently, he found an air pree*
sure of only three pounds per square
inch. Fifteen thousand feet higher
be belteves may bring a collapse of
tbe plane, a failure of the engine, an
inefficiency of the superoharger or
an explosion of his body. The
newly-constructed craft will care for
tbe first tbree possibilities.
His body was puffy and the body
tissues bad begun to feel tbe strain
of tbe altitude wben MaoCready
made bis record. He pushed tbe
nose of bis plane upward, but his
physical limit bad been reached.
Tben, he said, be determined to explore tbe higher region.
News of the City
It is understood, says the Penticton Herald, tbat the department of
Indian affairs has appealed to tbe
supreme court against the decision
recently gt>en in tbe connty court
here by Judge J. R. Brown in the
case of Herbert Baker, charged with
selling intoxicating liquor to an Indian. Baker was convicted oo tbis
charge by Magistrate T. A. Pope,
and ordered to pay a fine of $200.
He appealed to the county court.
Judge Brown, wbo reheard tbe case,
wbile siatiog that he was not prepared to say that tbe magistrate
was wrong in bis decision, gave
Baker the benefit of a doubt, which
the jndge felt existed, as to tbe
identity of tbe person from whom
the Indian secured liquor in Baker's

Lloyd George's Tribute
to Work of A. J. Balfour at Washington
London, Feb. 17.—"We are
prouder of him than ever," said Premier Lloyd George at u luncheon
tendered by the members of both
houses of parliament to A. J. Balfour yesteiday. "Thedistinction and
dexterity with whicb be handled
tbe affairs of this country at Washington filled our hearts with real
Mr. Lloyd George said that statesmen wbo haggle have missed tbeir
vocation; they should be horse
Alluding to  tbe situation in tbe
far east prior to the Washington con
ference,   Mr.   Lloyd   George    son-
tin ued:
"I am not exaggerating the dangers. Tbere were whispbered murmurs in tbe wind About preparations and projects, about what might
happen bere and would certainly
happen there. Everywhere you
heard those rumhrs and sushicions.
Tbe president of the United States
rendered a service to humanity by
taking up tbe situation in time and
by dealing with it. As a result of
that great conference, which be gathered together, misunderstanding has
been removed and suspicions not
merely allayed but completely cleared away.
"The western sky is clear, and I
used to be taught as a boy that
when tbe skies lifted in the west a
bright day Would follow. I believe
the same thing will happen here
again. Although the east is thick
and dark with clouds, the west is
clear, and the east will follow.
"I am delighted," he continued,
"to thank tbe man wbo above all
others helped to clear those skies. It
was a noble achievement and noble
was the part Mr. Balfour took in it.'
Declaring that Mr. Balfour de
clined petty measures, the premier
said tbe result "is an agreement that
pleased all parties. I believe it is one
of tbe most conspicuous services ren
dered to the empire and to humanity. And Mr. Balfour went for cooperation, not conquest."
Tbe prime minister said tbe old
idea was tbat tbe best diplomatist
was be wbo snatched the greatest
apparent or obvious advantage either
to national security or some other
motive, respectable or the reverse. He pointed out that none of
these things could be said of tbe
Washington conference, and no sucb
spirit animated tbe powers there assembled."
He said be believed tbe foundations bad been laid upon wbicb
great questions might be settled.
"I believe," be continued, "also
tbat tbe question of naval armament
was settled, although everybody
may not have got all he would desire. The land problems of tbe far
east, the naval problems of the Pacific, and less obviously but not less
really, the question of naval armament or naval diminution of arms in
Europe I believe have been settled.
Speaking !n reply to the premier's
address, Mr. Balfour said Secretary
of State Hughes not only was chair
man of tbe conference, but was the
guiding spirit in its deliberations.
He said he had never seen greater
ability and courtesy, a more admirable temper or a clearer idea as to
the course tbe negotiations should
take, or a more sure perspective of
the ends at which the conference
should aim, or greater boldness of
couception as t*> tbe methods by

Wild Report Printed in
Winnipeg Paper Is Sent
Broadcast by Canadian
A sensational* story, wbich seems
to have originated in the office of
tbe Winnipeg Free Press, ahout a
a wholesale massacre of children
and aged and sick Doukhobors so
tbat healthy members of tbe colonies
in western Canada might roam tbe
country unhampered as nomads,
was printed in tbe coast dailies on
Tuesday, having been scattered
broadcast hy the Canadian Frees.
Tne flimsy justification for this horrible crime was given as a protest
against exto tionate taxalion.
Ottawa officials in tbe department
of tbe interior and tbe soldiers' settlement board, who have been in
close contact witb the Doukhobors
for years, laugh at the sensational
storfes being published, attributing
to them tbe intention of slaughtering their children aud aged persons,
according to a dispatch from the
federal capitol.
"Tenderness for and care of young
and the aged iB one of tbe outstanding characteristics of tbe   Doukhobors," said Commissioner Sam  Maber of   the   settlement   board, who
I worked among them for years.   "No
one wbo knows them will ever   believe tbey would wantonly sacrifice
the  lives  of their own   people, to
whom   they   are   notably kind aod
loving, particularly iu  view of the
fact, that one of   their cardinal doc-
isjfs.. is against the taking  of life
even of animals.
"The people of British Columbia
and the government as well are not
particularly enamored of tbe new
settlers. The merchants make no
money out of tbem, as they conduct
their affairs communally; tbey are
not sociable or otherwise desirable
as neighbors, aod tbey do not like
paying taxes for tbe upkeep of
military and otber services to which
they are opposed."
Latterly, it is understood in Ottawa, tbe Doukhobors bave been taxed
very heavily. Possibly conditions
are becoming such as to rouse them
again and Veregin is trying a new
form of terrorism along the line of
the undressed parade beld in Saskatchewan when the government
insisted on the homestead regulations being observed.
About one third of tha Doukhobors, mainly of the second generation, accordlog to the Ottawa dispatch, have already broken away

No one but a criminally insane person
could have made the statements attributed
to Peter Veregin by a Winnipeg paper And
yet there seems to be thousands of people
who take them for gospel truth. All of which
goes to prove that it is easy to believe when
one wants to believe.
As some of the liquor cases are still before
the courts, itis not politic to make any drastic
comment on them in print. It may be ob
served in passing, however, that the person
who misses the lesson that the past week's
local events shonld* teach, will probably come
to grief in future.

"Lady killers" are a new exhibit at county
fairs. They include the old-time washtub,
washboard, broom and dustpan, sadiron, cast-
iron kitchen stove, coal stove, soapstone
heater and many other pieces of household
equipment now out of date. Seen together
they do appear to be a heavy lot, quite
worthy of their name, so that tha spectator
turns with relief to the accompanying exhibit
of "silent servants," which work at the turn
of a switch. .
For the purpose of experiment, two hundred members of the Philadelphia police force
went to a field outside the city and resolved
themselved into a mob. A squad of "tear gas"
bombers attacked them and promptly reduced
them to submission. If every jailer in the
country should keep a supply of "tear-gas"
bombs on hand, there would be fewer outrages
by mobs.
Motor traffic that kills and a gun that "I
didn't know was loaded" are in the same
category. It is time that the motorist awoke
to the fact tnat he is driving a deadly weapon
and that every time he ignores traffic regulations he is pointing a loaded gun at a fellow
mortal's head. The statement by an insurace
publication that in the United States during
1921, 12,000 persons were killed and 1,500,000
seriously injured in automobile accidents is
something to think about.
The London Morning Post declares that
the visit of the Prince of Wales to India has

than its loyalty. Lord Northcliffe, who has
been visiting India, bears shocked testimony
to the prevalence, of disaffection there. Since
the settlement of the Irish question there is
no reason to think that any of the problems of
the British empire are insoluble, but it is ap

Insects are among the worst enemies of the
human race. They destroy millions of dollars
worth of farm crops annually in Canada and
their destruction  of timber :n the forests is
also very heavy. The officers of the Dominion
department of agricultnae and of the forestry
branch of the department of the interior are
constantly  working   to   reduce the damaj
from this curse. So far as the general public
is concerned, aud this applies particularly to
boys and girls, the best help Lh*y can give is
to protect the birds.   In some cases in Eng-
laud owners have saved their planted forests
by putting up bird houses and  inducing certain  kinds of birds to come to their plantations. In Canada in the past insects have been
kept in control by birds.   If the birds are destroyed or driven away, the insects multiply
exceedingly and the farms and the forests suffer.    Cats are inveterate bird killers, and cat
owners both  in the city and   the   country
should be on the alert to prevent  sucb   destruction.
"Flapperitis," the latest fashionable disease,
according to Miss Janet Richards, Washington society worker, has become epidemic in
the east, where it is alleged to rage to the
extent that every mother has reason to fear
for the safety of hor sons. Well-bred and educa ed girls, she declares, instead of being the
personification of purity, refinement and inno
cence, appealed to be taking the initiative in

The young should plant traes in recognition
of the obligations they owe to those who
planted trees for them. The old should plant
trees to illustrate their hope for the future,
and their concern for those who are to come

especially in the prairie country, and beautify
the landscape and ameliorate the sweep of
the north wind.

Dishonesty hurts the cheated less than it

Naming the Montclare
\ At the Naming Ceremony of
the New Canadian Pacific
Steamer "Montclare" by
T_ady McLaren Brown
jFrnm left to right: Sir Thomas
Fisher, Sir Charles Ellis,
Lady McLaren Brown, Lady
Grades, Sir George McLaren
Brown, Mr. Kenneth Mackenzie, Sir Thomas Bell and
Captaiji Morris.
Inspecting the "model" room
before the luncheon, Lady
Brown remarked how strange
it was that since first they sailed the main ships had always
been spoken of as "she." "I
suppose," she added, "they
made her a woman because
they found out that, loved and
humoured, she is an angel, but
driven—well, she isn't." She
thoupht it was Kipling who
said that ships were like women in that they had many
secret hopes and dreams. However that mitrht bp. her Ip'ly
ship trusted that the good ship
"Montclare," the new C. P. R.
Liner, would prove to be what
ail women hoped and dreamt
of—the beautiful, the strong,
and the true.
One of the raciest speeches
ever heard at a Clyde launch
' was that by Lady McLaren
Brown, following the luncheon
at Messrs. Brown's Yard, December 16. While the new Canadian Pacific liner was not put
into the water, her Ladyship
christened the vessel, and as a
souvenir she received a beautiful brooch which the recipient
declared would give a fresh
lease of life to her dress and
thereby gratify   her husband.
The new Canadian Pacific Steamer "Montclare," 16.200
tons, as she appeared before launching at the Yards of Messrs,
John Brown & Co., Clydebank, Scotland.
The speaker was the-wife of Sir
George McLaren Brown, the
European Manager of the C. P.
R., who, with a distinguished
party, travelled from London
io   Liverpool   for   the   launch.
Lady Brown, a Canadian, was
both eloquent and witty and -ihe
was warmly co'ngratu'ated jn
her contribution to the postprandial oratory. f

apparent from the many happy remarks heard.

Florence—-Birthplace of Artists ^
Seen from the top of the Viale de*
Colli that curves gently yet with a
magnificent sweep up to the Piaz
Bale Michelangelo, among flowering
bushes and pleasant gardens, anrl
from the various hills of S. Miniato.
Florence stretches out like a woman
in heT beauty, between the two banks
of the Arno.
It is not astonishing that this fair
land should have been the motlier of
fenius. grace and' power. As we
reathe the air of Florence and inhale the joyousness of its landscape,
and listen to the vivacious, picturesque speech of the inhabitants, we feel
that Florence and the whole of Tuscany is indeed the birthplace of poets
and artists; that here art and poetry
are spontaneous things, of the same
nature as the water that spring-
from a source or the flowers that
grow on the banks of a stream.
How could the Florence of to-dav
banish the memory of Dante? The
greatest of all Italians, exiled by tho
wickedneis of his contemporaries.
And their descendants, as if to makr
amends for the ingratitude mete.i
out to him, have carved his verse in
marble on their street corners.
Thc house where GalUeo Galile
lived and thought cannot be visitc!
without emotion, .-specially the Villa
at Arcetri, where the great scientist spent his last days in blindness
and il) health, whence we can alsu
enjoy a panorama of exquisite beau1.v
and peacefulncss; and the house of
Buonarottl where a nephew of th
divine Michelangelo has gathered to
gether a precious collection of hi
great ancestor's works.
Florence has not yet reached tl:
status of a crrp.it city; on the coi.
trary it has remained a somewha
provincial town, but tram-cars nos*
run all through its streets and gin-
it animation without spoiling in h*
least the charm of thc ancient buildings, of thc marvellous loggie, of the
churches and palaces built by the'
generosity of the Medici to the greater glory of the "city of the lily." Industry has not yet invaded Florence
as is the case in the northern towns
of Italy, although the production of
art works is still an important factor, while the art of manufacturing
silk and wool was a source of great
prosperity in the time of the Medici.
Florence, the mother of Art, gave
birth and hospitality to innumerable
Italian and foreign artists: Cimabue,
Giotto, Masaccio, Botticelli, Leo
nardo, Michelangelo, Andrea del
Sarto amongst painters; I.ucagna
Donatcllo, the two Delia Robbias
Michelangelo, Henvtn.it-*> Cellini and
Sansovino amongst the sculptors
Arnolfo di Cambio, the first arch'
teet of Santa Maria del I'iore, Giotto
Orcagna, the great Bruneileschi, win
built the beautiful cupola of the
cathedral; Leon Battista Alberti and
Bangallo amongst the architects.
The churches and palaces of Flor
ence, its streets and squares, mu-
eeumi and galleries, make up
a collectien of art treasures without
rival even among the famous collections of the world.
Aa we visit the Palazzo Vecchn.
the Rooms of the 13th and luth century, the apartments of Leo X., the
Prior's Chapel, and the abode of a
thousand other treasures such as -the
Galleria degli Uffizi, Palazzo Pitti,
th* Accademia the Old and Modern

collections,  our  minds  are   literally  as a prison  and place of execution
in the thirteenth century, the houses
that belonged to the Alighieri have
been exhumed. Patient research
work, spreading over periods of
years, has rediscovered the foundations, the main walls and some ston*
coats-of-arms belonging to the Alig-
hieri and other noble families of
Florentine merchant princes, among
others the Adimari and Donati. The
houses which existed when the great
jroet was born have been 1 .ought to
life again in all the splendour of
their architecture and decoration,
and have been surrounded by a mag--
nificient railing of beatsn iron. The
red robe of thc first great Italian
citizen can almost be hoard rustling
within those rooms as one Deeps
through its stained-glass windows.
The Medici Palace, the residence
of the Medici at the height of their
power, bears witness to their bloodstained oppression und stolen plunder, which the poetic gifts and gentle
nature of one of their race, Laurence
the Magnificent, have not been sufficient to obliterate. I

But no one can have a complete
idea of Florence without making an
excursion beyond the outskirts of
the town, where the surroundings
possess great beauty of landscape
and a charm which is not easily
found elsev/here. A day at Fiesole.
where the ruins of the Roman theatre are still in existence, is a joy
not soon forgotten. Then, climbing
up to Bellosgunrdo, we can enjoy a
perfect panorama. Further on we
