The annual meeting of tbe Qrand

spite of many Mtintfer attractions,
and enthusiasm (or the Liberal
cause seemed to be Bbuve par not-

rash statements about the short
comings of the party half a block
•way from the hall.
President Clark, who presided,
reported having attended enthusiastic ineetihgs of Liberal associations in Vancouver wbile at tbe
ooast, and stated that *a provincial
convention of the party would be
held in Nelson in June.
The election of officers for the ensuing year resulted as follows:
Honorary  president, Hon. Mackenzie   King;  honorary   vice-presi
dent,   Hon.  John Oliver; honorary
second vice-president,  E.  C. Hen"

Michener, Mrs. J. A. Brown.
Messrs. Ritchie and Phillips, of
Cascade, addressed tbe meeting on
matters affecting that town
Tbe association deci led to bold a
get-together meeting and entertainment of Liberals some time in April.
The hour was very late wben tbe
business session was over and Mr.
Henniger arose to address the meet
ing, but by speaking rapidly be
managed to cover a multitude of
subjects  in   a short space of time.
Mr. Henniger reminded those
present tbat the South Okanagan
land settlement scheme, which was
being critioized by the oppostion,
was started at a time when it was
imperative to find work and homes
for relurned men. It bad served this
purpose, nnd tbe settlement at present gave every promise of being a
big success.
While in Vancouver be bad made
personal enquiries about tbe Camp-
bi.il warehouse deal, and had been
assured by level-headed business
men of that city that tbe warehouse
was the only suitable building in tbe
city for handling tbe immense business of tbe liquor board. He bad
also been assured by equally good
authority that, everything considered, the prioe paid for the warehouse was not exoesssive.
The appointment of Dr. Baker as
chairman of the game board be con
sidered an error of judgment on the
part of the late attorney-general.
David Whiteside bad fallen out witb
the government over this case, but
after the investigation be bad be
come a stronger supporter of the ad
ministrasinn than he ever wis.
Finance Minister Harl, said. Mr.
Henniger, bad announced that in
future hiB policy would be to sell
government bonds abroad in -order
to leave British Columbia mooey at
home for home development.
The speaker eodorsed  the Sumas
dyking scheme, saying that it would
make an immense tract of tbe rich
est land in tbe province available for
Tne principal cause for tbe criticism of the government by the opposition, he said, was aotuated by
the fact that the "outs wanted to get
in." He hoped Mr. Bowser would
continue aB leader of tbe opposition.
His influence in|tbe Revelstoke by.
electi n was illustrated by tbe result—4 to 1 in favor of the govern
ment candidate. *
The most pressing need of the
province was immigration, and tbe
British government bad promised
to inaugurate a comprehensive
scheme as soon as the Irish question
was settled. British Columbia waB
an empire in itself, but it only had
the population of a single eastern
county. That was one of tbe reasons
why taxation was burdeusome. The
population should at least be
Another cause of high taxation
was given. LaBt year ths rich and
populous province of Manitoba paid
out a little over #100,000 for moth
era' pensions. Alberta, wbich has
a larger population tban British Columbia, only expended $50,000 for
this purpose, wbile tbis province
paid out $500,000 in pensions of
this nature. We mtgbt reduce taxa
tion some by cutting off these pen
sions,  said   Mr. Henniger, but for

Turning to local affairs, tbe
speaker said the money was now
available for the completion of the
first unit of the irrigation system;
and if that proved a success, and
the ranchers. decided that they;
wanted tbe other units installed, he
bad no doubt ofthe government ad
vancing the money.
Mr. Henniger said tbat, as our
member, he bad always endeavored
to keep Qrand Forks to the forefront and obtain proper recognition
for tbe district- by securing its just
share of appropriations and by taking an aotive part in the proceedings
of the boose.
He paid a fine tribute to the
ability of tbe prime minister and
the other members of tbe cabinet.
In the speaker's opinion, there was
no more capable man in British
Columbia tban Hon. Jobn Oliver.
The thing tbat impressed bim most
was the prime minister's wonderful
memory. Lately Mr. Oliver had
dug up a clause in the British North
Act- wbich stated tbat one of tbe
conditions under which British Col
umbia joined tbe confederacy of
provinces was tbat this province was
to bave equal freight rates
witb tbe other provinces. Tbe
speaker believed that British Columbia would get equal freight
rates, It might take the form of a
slight decrease in rates in the west
and an increase in tbe east, but it
would be equal freight rates,
Tbe speaker characterized tbe P.
G.E. as a gigantic mistake, and dismissed tbe subjeot with tbat assertion.

Provincial    Minister    of

There was no ground on wbich
British Columbia could olaim cabinet representation as a result of
political support to the Liberal
party. British Columbia's claim to
cabinet representation bad to rest
solely on tbe broad ground of national policy. On the belief tbat no
efficient federal cabinet can be localized, that national welfare requires the giving of cabinet representation to eacb substantial terri-
toeiai unit in the Canadian commonwealth, Prime Minister Mackenzie King has given full effect to
this consideration of national welfare, aod has entrusted to Dr. King
of Cranbrook tbe department of
public works of Canada. Tbls is one
of the most important portfolios, tbe
bolder whereof must be selected
more for peisonal efficiency and
experience than for political affiliations. Dr. King has been for years
minister of public works in the provincial government of British Columbia; has wide experience in tbe
administration of public works, and
has obtained public confidence in
Ibis province to a wide degree, testifying at once to bis capability and
bis high oharaeter. Every consider
ation of provincial welfare demanded
that Dr. King be elected to the Ca
nadian parliament by acclamation
and sent to Ottawa with an unques -
tioned provincial support behind
bim. Unfortunately this is not being done. The election of Dr. King
is being opposed, but not on grounds
of public policy, and certainly not
in the public interest. This is one
sure way of seriously injuring British, Columbia at Ottawa, and it is tp
be seriously hoped tbat tbe opposition to Dr. King's election will be
immediately withdrawn

the Meeting
Revelstoke, Feb. 28.—With some
small polls to hear from, the majority for non. Dr. W. H. Sutherland, provincial minister of public
w-irks, is 691, as the result of polling yesterday in the by-election for
tbe provincial legislature necessitated by the appointment of Dr.
Sutherland, wbo has represented
Revelstoke since 1916, to tbe provincial cabinet. Tbe figures stand:
Sutherland, Liberal, 989; A. R. Mclntyre, Conservative, 298.
Figures from tbe remaining sixteen polls can not cbange tbe standing of the parties very materially, ae
they are small polls and remote.
They will probably add something
to Dr. Sutherland's majority.

While there is no d nger of the
defeat of Hon. Dr. King^ in East
Kootenay, tbere is considerable good

Februajy 28, gnd in eastern sections
March 2. A cool wave will be
in northwestern Canada near March
4, on meridian 90 March 6, in eastern sections 8.
March tempe.atures will average
near the average of the past four
months or somewhat colder. Two
principal storms will occur on March
16 and 27. Both will be near the
March equinox when tbe sun will
be over the earth's equator,
Tbe storms of the week centering
on March 16 will be exceedingly severe and will begin to affect the
wtnt her March 9. Auother storm,
centering on March 27, will be very
close to tbe total eclipse of tbe sun,
wbicb will be on March 28,but tbese
eclipses neither cause nor control
the storms. This eclipse will be
visible only in the far south.

Here is one sample of Mr. Bowser's style of
campaign speaking. The leader of the oppo -
sition told his Empress theater audience in
this city that the public utilities commission
had loaned the Vancouver Nut and Bolt company $50,000. The enterprise turned out to
be a failure and the manager of the concern
committed suicide, said the speaker, and then
dismissed the subject with the exclamation,
"That's where your taxes go!" Had Mr. Bowser not wished to create a false impression in
minds of those who heard him, he should have
told them that the loan was secured by a first
mortgage on the company's plant, which was
subsequently sold for $65,000, amply reim •
bursing the government for the loan.
city speaks very volubly when it discusses
the doings of the Douks living other than its
home town,but those residing in its immediate
environments are ignored in its publicity campaigns. An outsider would not suspect that
there is a Doukhobor in Nelson The worst
feature about the Nelson fiction is, that some
of the coast papers are commeuting on it as
if it were reliable news.
If the South Okanagan   land settlement
scheme is as big a failure as the opposition
leader and his meagre following are trying to
convince the people, why is the Canadian Pacific railway building a branch from Penticton
to Oliver?   And why is the Canadian Canneries company making preparations to put in
a plant in the latter town'   Reason tells us
that these concerns are acting purely from a
business standpoint, and that the opposition is
so hungry for office that they grasp eagerly at
any misrepresentations handed out by their
Mr. Bowser gave out a long string of figures that have been heard here before in connection with the construct-on of the P.G.E.
As even opposition members, masquerading
in the guise of hoboes along the line of con
struction of that road, have been unable to
find any blame of a damaging nature tbat
could be attached to the government, the figures may be said to merely serve the purpose
of filling in some ofthe time that Mr. Bow
ser has to spend on the platform. -
Because ofthe publicity which is being given
to the campaign against the sale and use of
narcotic drugs in Vancouver, some of the
drug peddlars are taking to cover in the small
towns and rural parts of the prbvince, where
they are continuing their nefarious trade.
Because of this province-wide moral and
health problem, the provincial division of the
Canadion Red Cross is sending out warning
to every section in the province in order that
not only the officials but all citizens, especially
teachers and parents, should be on the alert
against the insidious traffic in drugs.
Dance halls need special watching.
Watch tho stranger in town.
Avoid "snow1' parties, where snuff(cocaine)
is given.
Close chaperonage of girls is the greatest
safeguard, and parents should insist on this.
The habit begins by the snuffing of cocaine,
which causes a feeling of exhileration. After
three or four doses the user can not sleep, and
must then resort to morphine.
"I always select my reading matter to suit
my personal environments," said one of the

In a like class might be placed the figures
that the speaker gave out about the cost of
highway construction. They can be obtained
in a much more condensed form and of a more
reliable nature from almost any government
source. They compare favorably with the cest

W. K. Esling, Conservative member for
Rossland, has adopted the Bowserian method
of attempting to tear down the present government without offering a satisfactory substitute. Mr. Esling is long on ancient figures
and short on the requirements of present-day
government. As a statesman his potential
value still remains to be decided. That is
probably the reason why he is not taken very
seriously by the people—not even as seriously
as Mr. Bowser.
As the minister of public works was elected
by a vote of 4 to 1 in the Revelstoke by-election on Tuesday, there is a suspicion that Mr.
Bowser's activities in favor of the opposition
candidate were of considerable value to Dr.
Sutherland. In the next general elections
Mr. Bowser will no doubt be able to command a large salary from Liberal candidates
to speak in opposition to them.

Our town is shook from stem to stern, the
natives are uneasy; for bygone days of peace
wo yearn, when things were free and easy.
For reasons quite unknown to me, our social
trend is fussy, and citizens, I hear and see, are
saying prayer-words cussy.
The dry squad's having famous luck invad
ing public houses—they back right in and load
their truck with boose the law allows us; said
landlords have no right, by heck! to handle
liquids joyful. That's why they get it in the
neck with sentences annoyful.
The government has a nice shop where wet
goods they will sell us, if we must drink the
nasty slop; buy here, the laws all tell us. And
it's a crime to have a bunch cached in out private, cellars; the odor forms a perfect hunch
to greet the dry squad's smellers.
It seems that when we've got a stake with
which to go and get, and have a thirst which
we must slake, gad zooks! can we not wet it?
There must be laws on land and sea, and it
doesn't pay to doubt them, though oftentimes
we   fail to see why we can't do without them.
Most laws are just and pure and good and
save us from extinction, and I have always
understood that laws make no distinction.
The law that makes the profiteer jar loose
from his spondulicks, to us is every bit as dear,
though we must live on toothpicks.
The law of governmenf control ain't bone-
dry legislation; it simply means, hand out
out your roll to us for liquid-ation. Don't buy
from others, or the law will say you're getting
frisky, and hand you six months on the jaw
and cart away your whiskey.

done since our civilization commenced. Her
marriage is of no more importance to the
world than any other girl who gets married
and fulfils nature's law. Yet the papers are
full of this girl's private affairs. Cripples are
joining together to make her a present, also
Marys and numerous other combinations of
all sorts of people. The girl is a good girl,
but no better than millions of her working
sisters. The wedding will be an expensive
one. At the same time millions of people are
without proper nourishment. Tbe coming

January 28th. Under ideal weather
conditions the wonderful playground
was gay and smiling for the event.

typical of the mid-west in the unique
arrangement of tepees and pine
trees. Each tent was gaily painted,
Indian fashion with elk, bear, buffalo, head and fantastic designs.
Flags fluttered bravely in the breeze
on the gay highway leading to the
crowning feature, the monster ice-
palace. It ie built at the entrance to
the new bridge across the Bow river,
directly In front of the museum. In
a setting of snowy pines, the spectacular palace takes the form of an
old English gateway, forming a
great ice-wall, 60 feet wide, across
the street with drives through it
wide enough to allow motors to
pass. The central tower is SO feet
nigh, ana. the side towers are 18 feet
high. About 600 blocks of ice,
each 44 inches by 22 by 28, 980
poundi each were taken from the
Bow rivar for the construction of
the glUtening gateway. Passing
through the palace gates, roads lead
up Spray avenue to the C. P. R.
Chateau, to the Cave and Basin, to
Sulphur Mountain and to the Alpi.-.e
Club of Canada.
