A remarkably heavy vote
was polled in the civic elec
tion yesterday, although the
weather was not as pleasant
as it might have been. The
defeat of Mayor Acres is undoubtedly attributable to the
tact that he has held the of-
fiee for a number of terms,
and it should not be Liken as
censure of his administration
during the past year. The
aldermanic makeup of the
1925 council is particularly
strong; and few people will
be found so critical as to ob
ject to any of the members-
elect of either the new council
or the  of the  school  board

given out by Returning Officer Hutton are:

milled to the government at Easter.
Following many sittings at various
points in the province, tbe commit*-
sionejs are claimed to bave covered
the entire situation in detail. However, it is known that few important
changes are to be BUpgested, the
feeling being that in a province like
British Columbia, with its vast extent, tbere is not much room for
improvement.
Premier Oliver hae telegraphed
from OtUwa, before leaving the
federa capital,tbat the railway conference haa ended, with the under»
standing that matters dealt with will
be taken up with officials of tbe
Canadiau Pacfic and Canadian Nass
tiooal railways and another conference may be held at a hter date. It
is gtinfrally understood, though,
tbat ii tentative agreement baa been
reached wbich will lead lo a solution of the Pacific Great Eastern
railway problem and the question of
a railway for the Peace river district.
Hon. W. H. Sutherland, minister
of public works, states tbnt a stait

figure skating, snowshoelng and Ice Yachting are but a few of the many seasonal attractions to the famous mountain resort.
Banff aa they now visit New Orleans in March for the
Mardi Graa, or Pasadena for the Rose Tournament.
Apart from the glorious scenery, it is a perfect Winter
playground.
Preparations are even now under way for the next
Winter Carnival. This, to be held from February 7th
to 14th inclusive, is planned to be the greatest yet.
Calgary enthusiasts have decided to cancel their own
carnival arrangements and to unite with the Banff
citizens to make it a success. A very comprehensive
program of sports has already been drawn up covering
events in curling, skating, snow-shoeing, ski running and
jumping, ski-joring, tobagganning, trap-shooting, sleighing, and swimming in the hot sulphur pools. For none of
these sports could the setting or the conveniences be
excelled.
For the adventurous visitor Lake Minnewanka offers
ice-yachting. Dog-sled races are a never failing source
of interest. These races are often run down the main
street, and, as in other sports, it is often a case of the best
dog being beaten as a great deal of comedy is played. It
often happens that an over anxious or jealous contestant
grabs an opponent in any convenient place and in the
ensuing mixup any old hound can waddle home an ear-
winner. But its all in the frame; and the game at Ban!'
the out-door game—with dancing, cards or conr
Banff. Immediately one conjures up visions of the
Bow River, the Valley, sunny Blues, warm days.
Bummer dresses, ponies, excursions into the snow capped
mountains, swimming in the pools, hiking boots, breeks
and bathing suite. There are a thousand pleasant
memories of Banff in summer time. Comparatively few
however, have any idea of this mountain resort in
Winter. The thought at this season gives us a chilly
feeling perhaps. Yet, after all, having leisure, what
better place could be found in which to spend a long or
short vacation after snow has fallen. Cold? Certainly no
more so than down on the plains where what winds there
are sweep uninterrupted.
Sheltered by the rocky slopes on practically all sides,
high and with a drier atmosphere, the frost there gives
where elsewhere the country sleeps through the winter.
As Quebec is to the East, so, perhaps even to a greater
degree, is Banff to the West. The home of Winter
Sports.
Instead of going to Bleep, the little town of Banff
comes to life with the coming of snow. One event and
community effort follows the other, and a long list of
sporting activities culminates in February with a huge
seven day carnival in which all citizens and hundreds
of enthusiasts from all parts of the World, take part.
It will only be the case of a very few years until -   „ — ...........K, ,„...., ... .

"I believe brighter days are in

^Toronto, Jan. 12.—The
new chief of the Doukhobor
population in^Canada, Pete r
Veregin, Jr., who is still in
Russia, may decide to call his
followers, comprising thous -
sands, from Canada back to
the old country, according to
Michael Veregin, cousin of
Peter and a merchant of Bu -
chanan, Sask., who is in Toronto today on^business ,
Peter Jr. .has not been in
communication with the Doukhobors in.Canada since the
death of his'father in British
Columbia some months ago,
and Michael Veregin doubts
if the son is aware yet of his
father's death and the selection of himself to the leadership.
i£He explains that when
Peter Veregin Jr. returned to
Russia in 1919, he assumed
the leadership of 15,000 Doukhobors. If Peter comes to
Canada and looks things over
and decides to make his home
here, the 15,000 Doukhobors
in Russia will move to Canada, said Michael Veregin.
On the other hand if he decides to withdraw the settlement from Canada, about
8000 Doukhobors will un-
doubteply pull up etakes and
retujn to the Russian settlement.
Row io Start the Car in Cold
Weather
|By Erwin Greer, President Greer College of Automobile Engineering.
(Copyright 1925 by Erwin Greer.)
Of course ohe principal [difficulty
in .starting; a car when it [is cold is
that the gasoline does not vaporize
readily aud combine with air into a
combustible mixtnre. Understanding this, do not wear out the storage
battery with the starter or [your pa
tience with the crank handle with a
fruitless endeavor to start something
Use your head instead of your arm.
It will start easier, for neither headstrong nor armstrong starters are
worth wbile.
As soon as the engine  starts it
is very important tbat the cboking
pour a little hot, water over the
manifold. The intake will get warm
enougb this way in a little while.
But tbe surer way is to wrap a
cloth about tbe manifold and empty
the teakettle slowly upon it.
Care must be taken not to get any
water on the high tension ignition
terminals or in the float chamber of
the carburetor. Water will not pass
through the spray nozzle aod a tiny
globule will stick there and hold
back the gasoline.
Practically, all  modern carbure
tors have some sort of warming de-
"evice is opened partially, depending upon the temperature, uutil the
engine heats up, and then fully
closed. Otherwise the excess of
gasoline will cause the engine to run
sluggishly. Indeed, it may load up
the cylinders with such a rich mixture that the engine may stop
again. This in turn will make it
harder to start the engine than before. Do not open the choker
again if the engine stops from this
cause. Get as much air in as possible wbile you crank; the e gine
and thus approximate a correct
mixture.
If the aee of tbe choker device
fails to start the engine the only
thing   left   ti do iB to apply heat
vice to heat the gasoline and air
entering the mixing chamber. Some
get air from a stove or bot.air
furnace attrcbed to the exhaust
pipe and some depend on bot
water from the cooling system.
Neither of these will get into action, however, until after the engine
hae been running some time and
will not help he cold morning
troubleB of the owner. If there is
a hot water jacket on the carburettor, persooB who drain the coolin
syst-m on cold nights will aid
starting materially if ihey fill the
radiator with hot water in the
morning just before it is time to
start the engine. This warms the
entire engine, 83  that  condensation

FRIDAY, JANUARY 16, 1925
Readeis of the coast dailies are, in the argot
of the street, being fed up with facts and fairy
tales ofthe Peace river basin. This is all right,
Bs long as they confine their efforts to facts.
Any endeavors to enrich a particular section
of our province will benefit the entire population of the province, and for this reason the
present publicity given the great Peace river
country is commendable. But some of these
papers talk as if they were the discoverers of
this portion of our province and vaingloriusly
take all the credit of bringing the resources of
the district to the attention of the outside
world. This is wrong. Something less than
fifty years ago, when the editor of this paper
was working on the Victoria Colonist, Editor
Lawson (who has now slept with his fathers
for many years) had almost a daily editorial in
the Colonist on the potentialities of the Peace
district. Vancouver in those days was only
a tairsized country town, and this may be an
extenuating oircumstance in favor of the news
papers of that city of the present day for believing that they are real discoverers of the
Peace river basin.
It may happen that the more "high class'
the neighborhood the less neigh orly the
neighbors.
All the world's a stage and   multitude  are
only allowed to constitute the background.
After the people have thought over a theory
for 100 it is ready to put it in practice.

War and European problems are subjects
that can not be handled with silk mits. It is
safer to tackle them with brass knuckles. A
proper recognition of this fact probably
prompted the editor of the New Denver
Record to make the following editorial remarks, which most of the peaceful people on
this side ofthe big pond will endorse: "The
European situation is improving, says a dispatch. It couldu't do otherwise. When the

DOG mushers in Northern Manitoba arc out on the trail
every day grooming their
teams for the eighth annual 200-
mile non-stop dog derby, which is
being held on February 3rd, 1925.
Although the race is still some
time away, more than 100 dogs are
being given their daily stint of
trail work in preparation for the
grind. Several new teams, composed of young, well-bred wolfhound huskies are being trained
and this introduction of new blood
is expected to lead to a new and
sta*'Hitrr peep being set in the
1926 contest.
This year the teams will race
over a new course, the Herb Lake
gold camps having been set as the
turning point. The starting point
will be at the Hudson Bay Railway
bridge over the Saskatchewan
River, and the teams will follow a
route which is served with telephone communication so that frequent progress reports will be
available.
A five-dog team freight race has
been added to the programme this
year to provide a new feature. In
this sleigl.. will be required to
carry a load of 100 pounds and the | nival is held
team will race 30 miles each day

Hunters patronizing territories
in the Algomn district of the Canadian Pacific Railway had a very
successCul season in 1924, according lo a report recently issued.
Moose numbering 171. deer numbering 2,183 aid approximately 7,050

number of hunters ran into several
thousand. The figures quoted include those for Kipaws, Temis-
kaming, Mattawa, Sturgeon Falls,
Pakesley, Sault Ste. Marie, Chop-
lean, Sudbury, Schreiber and Nipigon, all exceptionally good game
areas.
More Christmas trees were shipped from Nova Scotia for the 1924
festive season than ever before, according to figures just compiled.
Twenty-two car-loads from territory bordering the Dominion Atlantic Railway alone were shipped to
outside points and approximately
150 car-loads left the province generally.
A splendid season of winter
sports is expected at Quebec this
year, as more and more people are
becoming interested in these healthy recreations in Canada and the
United States. In connection with
the activities of the Chateau Frontenac, the Canadian Pacific's great
hotel in the Ancient Capital, • number of new features will add to the
attractions Quebec has to offer.
These nclude inter-club, inter-collegiate and international competitions in all winter sports, to be held
under the auspices of the recently
formed Frontenac Winter Sporti
Club, which will award the successful participants with trophies ot
various kinds and attractive gold,
silver and bronze medals.

and English books entered in the
competition for these prizes, have
just been announced by thc committee of judges. In the French
section thc first prize, f 1,1)00, went
to Abbe Camille Roy for his book
"A l'Hombre des Erables," while in
the English section Marjorie Grant

"Another  Way of Love."
The most successful year enjoyed
by the Canadian Pacific Great
Lakes Steamship Service in freight
shipments since 1913 is reported by
Mr. Duff, manager of that service,
for the season lately closed. The
whole fleet of package freighters
for the first time since the outbreak of the Great War, has been
constantly employed' during the
seven months in whioh the lakes are
open. A feature was the very large
increase in the export flour business, some 76 per cent of the 300,-
000 tons of flour carried eastward
by the service having been destined
for export. October was a particularly good month, the ships having transported in that month 58,-
