Some disappointment was expressed on account of the nonappearance of Mrs. MacGregoi, of
Penticton, who had been billed as
one of tbe speakers, owing to sickness in her family. To fill her
place on the platform Mr. Latta, of
Kelowna, had volunteerd as one of
the speakers.
Mr. Latta, who was tbe first
speaker, praised Mr. Sutherland as
a man of integrity, ability and
honor, and gave a sketch of bis public and private life during bis residence in tbe province. The speaker

complimented the citizens on tbe

He discussed a nuinbe* subjects—
national railways, discrimination in
freight rates, unemployment, pensions, re establishment of the returned men, and the tariff. Tbe
tariff, although important, was not

The ceremonies attending the
unveiling of the war memorial in
this city on Armistice day were very
impressive. The program was carried out without a^nishap, th onl y

"God Save the King."
Mayor Hull made very appropriate and touching introductory
address, wbich was followed by a
prayer of dedication by Bev. St.
Qeo. E. Smyth.
Tbe unveiling of the memorial,
wbicb was perfermed by Mrs. Walter
E. Hadden, was an affecting scene.
The monument was draped fn the
Union Jack, and as Mrs. Hadden
pulled a string tbe flag parted and
revealed the statue to the assembled
throng, which Included nearly everybody in the city.
The reading of the names on
the memorial by tbe mayor was an

British Columbia led all the other provinces at the Imperial Fruit Show in London,
taking s'x gold medals. Ontario, which led in
thc Royal Agricultural Dairy Show, held in
world's metropolis recently, had to yield premier honors to this province. British Columbia captured the gold medals in the fourth,

classes, the silver medals in the first, second,
*4hird, fourth, fifth, twelfth, thirteenth and
fourteenth classes, and the bronze medals in
the first, second and third classes, besides be-

British Columbia thus took six gold medals to

We have been watching the operation of the
Moderation act since it went into force with
considerable interest. As at present administered, it seems to be more of a farce than a

is no improvement in the near future, the people should rise in their might and demand a
bone-dry plebiscite.
At last accounts the German government

to be seen.

A   Playground * in   Quebec
Canada bids lair to become in

Bio worldl Ours is in-e-eminently a
Country of natural resources—industrial ambitions, notwithstanding!—
and not the least among these are
our park areas, vast tracts of land
that are not suitable for agricultural operations, not required for
■Bnanufacturdng purposes, nor needed
lor populous settlements.
Such a region is that one called
■"the Gatineau," 15,000 square miles
of mountainous grandeur that rival
the CatskillB for scenery, Olympus
*forf atmosphere, and than which
there is no more alluring field, for
eportsmen this side of the happy
hunting ground. The Gatineau distrlot ifl a natural park, a-cessible
end already half opened, with a railway and a motor road, which though
for from perfect at the time of writing is used by an increasing number of tourists.
The country offers a life as
strenuous as tho pioneer demands, or
as restful as the jaded urbanlte
dreams of, but despairs of obtaining.
Canada Is gradually awakening to
the commercial value of her park
aTeas, her playgrounds; to the fact
that she hae something that older
countries—countries settled before
ftuF need tor "national ltufgs" was
She is beginning to realize that
an -amazing increase in motor traffic necessitates the providing of
some objective for tourist travel,
and that the more attractive the
objective, the greater the number of
tourists. Tourists represent revenue,
nd a very satisfactory type of
revenue, for in enjoying and benefitting by a sojourn in one of our
playgrounds, they leave the scenery
undiminished in grandeur, nnd they
tako away nothing that impoverishes
the country. So keonly are many
cities competing for this tourist traffic, that they provide^ camps for
motorists and vie with one another
In offering attractions that may induce a brief sojourn, at least, within
the municipality.
The Gatineau is like a hen waiting
to lay golden eggs and needing only
a little bit of corn in front of her
to set the machinery in operation.
The corn in this case, stands for
adequate accommodation.
The absence of hotels has been
for the lovers of the Gatineau one
of its principal charms. There haB
been no danger from inroadlng
hordes capabje of desecrating its
vast solitudes with jazz band and
uktlele, and building picture houses
to shut out the glory of the sky.
Chelsea, Kingsmere, Farm Point,
and Blue Sea Lake (where the Duke
and Duchess of Devonshire elected
to spend their summers), are almost
as a closed Paradise to any save
those who have cottages. Yet, although all of these places are undeniably beautiful and desirable by
reason of their very exclusiveness,
they do not comprise even half of
the   Gatineau.
The vicinity of Paugan Palls can
scarcely be equalled as a hotel site.
Paugan is an Indian word meaning
"pipe" and is descriptive ot* the
shape of the Falls. While these may
not bo mentioned in the same breath
with Niagara or similar glories, yet
they have their own peculiar charm;
the approach, the setting, the colouring of the surrounding hills, the
indescribable atmosphere of romance
that pervades the district. Over the
Paugan, a rainbow arch spans tha
two shores on sunny days and when
clouds threaten Old Sol with death,
the prismatic colours fade Into a
shimmering mist. Below the Paugan
Falls the Gatineau river grows calm
and forms not only a safe lake for
boating, but an ideal swimming pool,
bordered as it is for a half a mile
with a stretch of amber sand.—M.St,

"Scotian" leaving Southampton Harbor, as a troopship, en route for India.
The "Scotian," which left
Southampton Docks recently,
embodies an experiment by the
British Government'which will
result in a 'substantial saving of money to the taxpayers.
A.s is generally known, troops
ire conveyed to and from India
-inly during the winter months,
when accommodation on vessels specially built for tropical
waters is at the highest seasonal demand, and when the
chartering of such vessels for
conveying troops is most expensive. On the other hand,
winter is the season when the
North Atlantic trade is at its
lowest ebb, and when some of
the ships in that trade are
normata kid ua and ****\ —J
paid off. The Government have
selected the Canadian Pacific
liners "Scotian" and "Victorian"—both engaged in bhe
North Atlantic trade—for use
as troopships during the coming season, and the "Scotian"
has already been altered and
refitted for this special work.
The Mayor of Southampton,]
a number of Government officials and officials connected
with the Canadian Pacific
Steamships, Limited, have
visited the "Scotian," and expressed the opinion that tho
difficulties in* the way of pro
practical test, the exneriinent
would prove successful. The
troop decks are spacious and
well ventilated. Multitudes of
fans and an auxiliary ventilating system have been installed
to keep the cabins, cool. Notwithstanding all this, it waa
stated that a comparatively
small sum would be required to
r'*-equip the vessel for her ordinary trade ;'nd.afterwards to
reconvert her when required
into a troopship.
During the war the "Scotian*

News of the Gity|GET-T0GETHER
Millard   T.   Hartson,   of Seattle,
collector of customs for tbe state  of
Washington, aod Roy C. Lyle,  federal  prohibition    d rector   for   the
same   state,   were   in   the city on
Wednesday. They are on a trip   of
inspection    which' will    continue
across eastern Washington,and then
the western Washington border to
the Sound. They are determined to
close thegaps to liquor runners and
smugglers as they go. Monday night
Mr.   Hartson   stood   on   the  little
bridge at Night Hawk with customs
inspectors and stopped the  ''pilot
car" preceding one of the smugglers'
automobiles.   That he did not get
the smugglers was due to the fact
that he was forced to stop the lookout car instead of the liquer carrier.
Four automobiies loaded with Canadian liquor are slipping through
the  little  village   of Night Hawk
every twenty-four   hours,   on   the
average, and   entering  tbe United
States.  Eacb car carrfes from nine
to twenty-four cases of liquor. ,Ob-
servers declare this is one of fifty-
four border   roads    ieading    into
Washington. That this first gap discovered in tbe United States net lets
through tbis large quantity of liquor
has aroused federal officials to the
need for immediate action.   Travelling from  Oroville to Chopeka and
Night Hawk on Monday, tbe federal
investigators talked with ranchers,
storekeepers, customs men and railroad train crews.   They found that
Canadian ranchers have established
storehouses on the British Columbia
side of the line wbere liquor stocks
are stored for "export in known instances."   Despite  the    conditions
found to exist on the extreme eastern border of the state, the government chiefs declare they believe 80
per cent of  the smuggled liquor is
coming down Puget  Sound   from
Canadian   ports.   The volume slipping  through Oroville, Night Hawk
and points to the east  and west is
c msiderable.but the volume brought
iu by water, they declare, is   enormous in comparison.

A comedy sketch, c nsisting of

In a brief address, R. A. Brown, in

with the immense timber wealth of

Women and men alike are called upon to deoide whether political, Industrial and
economic stability is to be replaced by class rule, political and industrial chaos and
possible economic bankruptcy.
The facts are clear, and every Canadian woman will do her own thinking. She win
not be misled by others. She will not blindly follow family political precedent, neither
will she be carried away by the false theories or empty "isms" of theorists and sx-
tremista. Overy woman will arrive at a personal decision by the application of
practical common sense.
