the case in connection with the sale
of tbe Atwood horses.and stated that
ihe brands claimed by the owner were
not on the animals.   Both pound
keepers were cautioned to give fuller
descriptions in future in advertising
animals to be sold. As tbe case un
der discussion bad cost the eity over
a bundled  dollars, Aid.   Scbnitter

amend tbe. pound bylaw   so as to
provide a certain period for tbe redemption by owners of animals sold
by the poundkeeper.   The report ot
the chief was accepted.
A. Is. McKenzie offered $250
cash for lots 5, 6 snd 7, block 36.
The offer was accepted.
A letter from Chas. A. Pope, Victoria, assistant to tbe waiei rights

matter was referred to the water and
light committee foi consideration.
A letter from tbe Grand Forks
hospital stated that Wm. Carter and

luti n requesting the hospital to'fur-
nish a statement wben patients are
discharged as well as wben tbey are
A letter from District Engineer

provincial government would assume no responsibility for damange
to property or loss of life tbat might
result from tbe use of tbe Fourth

Washington, Feb. 13.—The week
oentering on February 21 will average colder than usual on meridian
90 from tbe Gulf of Mexico to tbe
far north. The low temperature ot
that disturbance will be in northwestern Canada about February 19,
on and all along meridian 90 Febru-
ajy 21, and in eastern sections February 23. A warm wave will be in
northwestern Canada near February
17, on meridian 90 February 19, in
eastern sections February 21.
The week centering on February
21 is one of the two piincipal storm
periods of tbe month and these
usually bring most precipitation in
form of rain, snow or sleet.
From February 11 to 22 stormy,
rough, bad weather will prevail
most of the time; not all the time in
one place, but as tbe storm moves
across continent from west to east
Eacb of tbe weather features is de
scribed aod located in the above details.
February is one ot the two most
stormy months of the year, but I am
of opinion that January will have
been the month of greateet storms
tbis year.
Most severe storms of March will
be during tbe weeks centering on
16 and 27; of April, 5 and 22; of
May, 9 and 26; of June, 4 and 24;
of July, 3 and 26; cf August, 1

The new Canadian Pacific Steamship "Montcalm," which sails between St John and Liverpool, is
equipped with motion pictures. The
showing of "motion pictures on board
ship hat provtn a big success ever
since its inauguration last summer,

features. The films are distinctly

-Victoria, B.C.—There are no better knov n golf courses ln ths Dominion than those at Victoria oa
Vancouver Island, no doubt due te
the fact that the game it played

arrangements whereby guests of tht
Empress Hotel at Victoria will bt

Ottawa, Feb. 16.—On Monday of
next week Hon. Jobn Oliver will
meet Hon. W. C. Kennedy, minister
ot railways, and make an offer of tbe
transfer to the federal government of
the Pacific Great Eastern railway.
Mr. Kennedy bas not yet returned
from tbe west, but the premier, who
regards this one of the main objects
of his visit to the capital, will await
the minister's return.
'There will be no conditions\ attached to this offer of a transfer, except tbat the government assume the
liabilities of the road," s id Premier
Oliver today, adding:
"It seems to me the only solution
ofthe whole situation. While the
$40,000,000 liability in connection
with the Pacific Great Bastern is a
heavy burden for the province of
British Columbia to carry by itself,
it would be a comparatively small
additional item for the Dominion.
"Since the federal governmenl has
taken over so mucb of the railway
system of the conntry aod assumed
the control o, small systems similar
to the Pacific Great Eastern, there
is no reason, in my mind, wby it
sbould not take over the Pacific
Great Eastern as a part of its complete transcontinental system."

The Grand Forks Curling club
held a very successful bonspiel at

Coalition members of botb bouses of

notable contributions statesmanship

"The arms conference hae averted
the danger of war in tbe Pacific," *
said the premier. "The shores of
the Pacific were littered with explosive material and at auy moment

The threat that the moving picture colony

prove a powerful stimulent to the critics.
Why can't the silly papers allow Princess
Mary to get married in peace? Some of the
gossip in connection with that event that now
fills the daily press is qualmish and toadish,

compelled to put their space to a useful purpose.
The report from London that the new
Dominion parliament will be asked to
rescind the resolution passed in 1919 requesting his majesty not to bestow titles upon Canadians domiciled in Canada, probably originated with a few Canadian society aspirants

This earth's a place where we may live and
have some occupation, where we should some
small effort give to work out our salvation;
And if our neighbor gets along and chews his
"cud" contented, we all should help him sing
his song just like as tho' we meant it.
Yes, we should help each other out, no matter who denies it; no use to sulk while others
shout—he's down and out who tries it. It may
be hot, it may be cold, with forty kinds of
weather, but here's a fact as good as gold, "It

There may be goodly eats in sight or hunger

bite—if thai, ain't tough go bli-me. If there is
plenty take a lot, if there ain't much spare it;
don't boast of things you haven't got nor ask
your friends to share it.
And it doesn't help to "moon" and gronch
or do a lot of knocking; such things, I vouch,

The effect on the steel industry of discontinuing the plan of building battleships need
not alarm anyone. The steel alone that will
be necessary for peace-time needs is more
than is contained in the tonnage of all the
battleships in the world, built or planned. One
example is the Hudson river bridge, from
Fifty-seventh street, Manhattan, to the top of

only about half as much  as they would cost

The saddest commentary on modern life in
these post-war days, says the Vancouver
World, is the failure of the home. On all sides
effisiency advances, but the home has receded.
Surely with better cause the modern Hamlet
can proclaim that "the time is out of joint."
Lawlessness has invaded the very schools;
the craving for artificial pleasures grips the
boys and g rls of the 'teen ages. The simple
pleasures and accomplishments of a generation ago are despised; noisy pleasures of the
slam-bang variety are in demand, and are
valued by their costliness. The boy, whose
father built a hqme-made boat or tramped
miles as a boy for healthy delight, yawns on
the deck of a pleasure craft or feels bored unless he can "step on her' in a high-powered
Jazz has taken the place of the homely
dance, the cabarets have usurped the love of
the out of doors. The peppy "movie" has taken
the place of literature. The "Sunday supplement" is a compendium of sex and scandal.
Mauy womeu are forsaking the seclusion of
the home for the spotlight of publicity. Boys
and girls by the thousands in the large cities
are turning to drugs for a thrill. On every
hand there are the evidences of a loosening of
a natural morality.
What are the causes? Where will it end?
Will there be a swing of the pendulum?
Undoubtedly the war aided the movement of!
the forces of moral as of political unrest in the
world. The hope of the end of this era of
license lies in the condition itself. Like physical diseases, the illnesses of the soul have the
property to setup a toxine. When the fever

cleanness of mind and body. The world has
experienced peculiar emotional waves before
Invariably they have ended in a reform movement, else would the race have undergone degeneration. This is the ground for rational

A new departure in Canadian Pacilic activities during this winter has
been the inauguration of winter
cruises to the West Indies and the
commencement of a regular service
to Havana and Kingston. Jamaica.
There is considerable trade between
the island of the Carribean and Canada, particularly in sugar and tobacco, and the fact tbat so many of
these islands are part of the British
Empire makes thb closer steamship
connection with Canada all the more
The "Empress of Britain," which
left New York on her first cruise de
luxe to the West Indies on January
21st, will make her second on February 21st and is already wt!! booked.
The porti of call include Havana,
Cuba; \_.ngston, Jamaica; Colon,
Panama; La Guayra, Venezuela;
Port of 3pain, Trinidad; La Brea
Point, Trinidad; Barbados; Fort de
Prance, Martinique; St. Pierre, Martinique; St. Thomas; San Juan,
Porto Rica;  Nassau,  Bshsmas, re
turning to New York. There will
be excursions ashore at the various
ports, conducted by representatives
of the Canadian Pacific, which will
S've unusual opportunities for see-
g points of interest during the 27
days   of   each cruise,        ....   ._.
The "'Empress of Britain" was
selected for these cruises by reason
of tht fact that she is not only a
luxurious ocean liner of the most
modern type, but the largest steamship making the West Indian cruises,
With a registered tonnage of 16,857
tons and a displacement tonnage of
22^200 tons. One outstanding fea
ture is that her engines are oil-
burning, a feature that will appeal
to all those who have experienced
the dust and dirt of coaling at tropical ports.
This ls the first time tha' the
Canadian Pacific has used lew
York as a port of departure for its
steamships services, although twelve
of Its Atlantic fleet carried troops
and supplies from New Yatk during
the War. Tke last time that th.
"Empress of Britain" sailed from
New York she carried the members
of the British War Mission and
members of the staffs of the Y. M.
C. A. and Knights of Columbus. She
covered nearly 200,000 miles durinsc
her war service, and transported
110,000 troops overseas. She carried thousands of Australians and
Britlah soldiers to Gallipoli and was
one of the transports assigned to
take them away. The Suez Canal
being closed, she made a 16 months'
trip around the Cape of Good Hope
with' troops for German East Africa,
and also for Mesopotamia. - She
made eight trips across the Atlantic
with 6,000 troops aboard. A German submarine launched two torpedoes, one of which, due to a lucky
zig-zag, missed the bow by three
feet and the other passed a dozen
feet astern. At least n dozen attacks were made upon the "Empress
of Britain" during tha war by U-

on the "Empress of Britain"
throughout the war and has never
missed a trip. He was personally
decorated by King George for his
services, and is an officer of the
Order of the British Empire. His
services on transports cover four
wars, the Benin anil Ashantl expeditions, the South African War and I
the late war.

"If mountain
tlimbing is dangerous, then lying
in bed is far more
dangerous, since
more people die
in bed than on tbe
mountains." That
is the answer of
Rudolf Aemmer,
the famous Swiss
guide of Edelweiss, British Columbia, in Montreal recently,
when asked if
mountain climbing is a dangerous sport.
Rudolf Aemmer
is well known to
mountain climber.-* and tourists
to Lake Louise,
Banff Field, and
all the most favored of thY holiday resorts in
the Cans dian
Rocky Mountains.
He has led many
a party of old
climbers over the
peaks of the
Rockies, and initiated many novices ln the sport.
In the summer months when most
climbing is done, Rudolf, with four
other Swiss guides, makes his head
qi-nrters at Lake Louise.
Rudolf has been in Switzerland
since the beginning of the winter.
Fie went over to see the old folks in
Interlaken, wbere he was bom, and
also to indulge in the Swiss winter
sports. He expects a record climbing season in the Canadian Rockies
in 1922, and he has been keeping
himself fit to meet it. He will be
back  from Switzerland in May.
Though he loves his native Switzerland Rudolf would rather live In
Canada.    He  has  been  here  since
Asked how he learned to climb
Rudolf said he learned in the Swiss
mountains when he was a child.
When a young man he got his climbing diploma. He then exhibited this
in the shape of a medal which he
•wore on the inside of his coat. One
has to qualify In Switzerland before
becoming a guide.
"•June, July and August are the
best montha for Canadian climbing,
Rudolf says. He told of different
climbing parties hs accompanied.
The longest climbing trip he had
was around Lake Louise and he and
his party ware oot thirty-six days:
on this trip there were thirteen people, and twenty-six horses were employed   to   carry   the   food,   Indian
"you need strong waterproof boote.'
with heavy nailed soles. The (rulto
help in every w.iy they can so that'
beginners starting nut on a climb ant
properly equipped."
"Do climbers ever ret nervous or
dizzy?" was a question put te
Rudolf. I
"Yet," he answered, "but they
very soon get over that. In an exceptional case of dizziness we bring
the person down areata." I
Proceeding, Rudolf said that tke
guide led the climbing parties, and
climbers held on to a rope, keeping.
about twenty-five feet apart. The
guide used his axe to sound snow;
bridges. By the sound made when
hit the guides know if it is safe to
cross the snow bridge. It is easier
to climb up than to climb down.        |
Rudolf has climbed with many
famous Alpinists, both men and wo-l
men. Records of climbs are kept at
Lake Louise. It was he who car-;
ried Mrs. Stone on his back t»
safety after her eight day exposure on the ledge of Mount Eon'
last summer. The Swiss guides of
the Canadian Rockies reside at a village called Edelweiss built for them
in Swiss Chalet styles of architecture by the Canadian Pacific Railway. It may be seen from the trans-1
continental trains about a mile west
of Golden, B.C.   There they bring up
I their families, and   the   youngsters
are taught to climb from their In.
fancy.    Bo Canada is assured of a
hardy race of mountaineers.

Winnipeg, Man. — On his return
from Montreal recently, D. C. Coleman, Vice-President of the C. P. li.
Western lines, issued the following
official statement regarding conditions and improvements of the company's lines west of Fort William:
'Commercial conditions as they
exist at the moment..have impose! a.l
the C. P. R. as on all other busine.3
organizations, a policy of caution
with respect to embarking on large
expenditures on capital account. It
has been decided therefore, to announce a beginning' on such works
only as are of an urgent character.
Consideration of further expenditure including that for the construction of branch lines, has been postponed until March or April when it
is hoped that the outlook will be
more clear and that the indications
of a steady revival in railway traffic
will be more definitely apparent.
"The most important work to be
undertaken at once is the building
of a large ocean pier at Vancouver.
This is justified by the constant
growth of ocean traffic through
Canadian Pacific ports, lt wil) take
approximately eighteen mont.V to
complete the work. The/filling and
dredging for the site lias already
been completed. The pier will be
eight hundred feet long (with provision made for further extension
later), three hundred and twenty-
eight feet wide, and will carry four
rauway tracks to enable freight to
be handled expeditiously between
ship and cars. It will be equipped
with the most modern facilities-for
handling passengers and freight.
With tbe construction of this pier,
following on the reinforcement of
tne ocean fleet by the great steamships, the 'Empress of Canada' and
the 'Empress of Australia,' the company is confident that it will hold
for Canada for many years thc bive
ribbon of supremacy on the Pacific.
To assist in the prompt movement
of traffic, mechanical coaling plants
of an improved type will be erected
at Eagle River, Ont., La Riviere,
Man., Estevan, Sask., Swift Current,
Sask., and Medicine Hat, Alta.
