The Late Hugh McCutcheon
Seldom has it been our duty to
record so sad a death as that of
the late Hugh McCutcheon who
passed away to his reward at his
home at 9 p.m. on Sunday, Jan.
6th. after about six weeks illness.
A dark gloom spread over the
whole community when it was
whispered about that Mr. McCutcheon was gone.-
Born of Irish descent in York
County, Ont., on June 4th, 1851,
making his age 12 years, 6
months and 3 days. ' He moved
west to Dakota ,and in 1882 was
bookkeeper for a' large ranch
owned by a Scotch syndicate.
Then going to Victoria for a
time he moved to Kamloops and
iu 1884 was -purser on one of J.
A. Mara's boats on Shuswap lake
plying between Savona Ferry and
Sicamous. The same year he
bought the Inland Sentinel, at
Kamloops (now The Kamloops
Standard-Sentinel) and was in
charge of it until 1894. During
that time he was a great advocate
'of making Kamloops the capital
of the Province. Iu '94 he moved
to Rossland and was employed in
Campbell Bros, store. He remained in Rossland three years
when he was made Customs
Officer at Nakusp and later Collector of Customs at Greenwood
which post he held for 24 years
up to the time of his death.
In the early days he was active
in the political life of the Province and was the Liberal candidate in Kamloops when Theo-
Davie_ was premier. At�� that
time the election was postponed
in Kamloops and when it was
held G. B. Martin, the government candidate was elected.
In 1896 he campaigned for H,
Bostock, who was elected to the
Federal Parliament when Laurier
went into power. At that time
he made many speeches iu the
Boundary and Okanagan.
He was a faithful church
worker and was a charter member
of St. Andrew's Presbyterian
Church at Kamloops, having been
on the Board of Managers when
it ,was built. He was on the
Board of Managers of St,
Columba Presbyterian Church
in Gree'nwodd,
He took an active part in the
affairs of the city and for years
was chairman of the School
Board. He also assisted in all
local enterprizes.
Curling was his" favorite game
and it was "only last winter that
a number of his friends invited
him to the local rink where he
won his last match.
The late Mr. McCutcheon was
married to Miss Margaret McLean in Kamloops in 1889. He is
survived by his wife and two sons
Roderick of Los Angeles and
Creighton; also a brother and
four sisters, David of Vancouver,
Civic Nominations
Nominations for Mayor and Aldermen, Police Commissioners and
School Trustee were held on Monday. All were elected by acclamation.
The new City Council for the
ensuing term- is practically tbe

W. H. Docksteader.

A. N". Mowat, L. Bryant and
Jas. Kerr (re-elected.)
A. J. Morrison and Robt. Forshaw.
With the Curlers   '
Curling has got off to a good
start. A number of games have
been played in the President
vs Vice-President competition.
Walmsley and Goodeve tied with
nine points each and in the
second game Taylor lost to Muir
by 4 to 12. This leaves the president with an adverse of 8 points
to overcome with his game with
the vice-president.
In the Warren Cup competition
Goodeve was victorious over
Taylor by 10-3.
Owing largely to the president's untiring efforts the two
sheets of ice are now in very good
condition and the members are
looking forward to some strenuous games. " -    '
News From the Capital
Victoria, Jan. 9th.���Perhaps the
outstanding achievement of the
Oliver government during J1923
was the redaction in freight rates,
secured only after a long and'bitter
fight. However, the deotease in
rates does not satisfy Premier
Oliver, who has announced his
determination to carry on the
fight until all discrimination
against British Columbia has been
Thanks to the political aspirations of certain outside faction!
during the past summer and fall, a
wrench has been thrown into the
machinery of government in this
province, but it promises to have
little effect upon general conditions.
Owing to the methods of the Third
party to gain public favor, through
the launching of a broadside at the
party in power, a thorough investigation of P. G. Ry. matters is
in prospect. The outcome of-this
enquiry through a Royal- commis--
sion will find the political situation
unchanged, excepting that the
government will be stronger and
the ambitious provincials" outside
the pale. But the public must pay,
first the cost of the enquiry and
the consequent loss of time of its
public servants,  and secondly the

McCutcheon was killed   in   the
Great War.
He was a man who united
sound sense with strong convictions, and was candid and outspoken which eminently fitted
him to mould the rude elements of
pioneer society < into form . and
consistency and aided iu raising
a high standard of citizenship in
our young and growing country.
How much this community owes
him it is impossible to estimate.
No bronze or marble shaft, no
splendor of ancient or modern
tombs can adorn the memory of
such manly men. Their lives,
their deeds, their influence, living
or dead, and their pure aspirations are the monuments that
will keep their names burning in
the homes of kindred- and breth-

wraps and chills us at this
moment, memories, sweet and
precious, come crowding in.

With ilie definite announcement that
the carboni/er troubles are practically solved, tho Lignite Utilization
111 Hoard has issued al fRifgiua a resume
of its work of the pasi five years. The
review of ihe board's work, spread
over five years, comes from its chairman, .ft. A. Iloss. Work commenced
October :i, :i[t'lS, and is not yet finished.
Until _!92<J the province of Manitoba,
Un. province of .Saskatchewan, aiubihe
.Dominion Government provided the
necessary finances. ���Manitoba, however, withdrew in _I8?3 and the worlc
has been continued by ihe Saskatchewan and Federal Governments.-
Mr. fUOss tells of the early  efforts
of tho board, through   its   engineers,
j 10 build a commercially satisfactory
cai'bonizing plant. Experimental
plants that appeared to bo capable
of doing the work developed all sorts
of weaknesses when c.msirucled oh a
larger scale, to the great disappoint-
| menl of the board. In summarizing
the results of the five vears work Mi'.

Wu would emphasize as strongly as"
wc are able to do that the board did

(I3\ Sn John Fosier Fi asei)
The man ss-ho fiisl thought of estab-
OOLDENTUXT���.ltho,ah will keep'hshing tho Fellosvbhip of the British
Hmpiie Exhibition is to be congiatu
We know thc exhibition to going to
be ' the gi ealest on earth," that it svill
be a grand panoiama of sshat ihe Empn e is < ccomplislung, that thousands
of oui hms-fnen fiom oseiseas svill ho

But behind, and thiough, and all
lound the exhibition is a gieat. In

So heie comes thc Fellowship ot thc
IJiiUs.li Emplie Exhibition, ssluch I
suppose all of us can join and sslnch
has the Pnnce ot Wales as its first
We will join bec.iubO sso slant to
make the exhibition a success because the fellowship will be a chain
binding together men all oset the

lelationships between all countries
within the Empne and sve svill weai
badges of our biothcihood m gun-

The follosvslup w 111 last ioi the pet-
ioel of the exhibition, but I sision
that fiom it will emetge a gteatci and
pciinanent association ot men thiough
out llie Empiie ssho, although fai

Eveiyone of Bntish citi/onship is

ni en I coitificate signed bs the Pnnce,
a ticket admitting us at all times to
the exhibition/ or tw entj fis e .singlo
tickets, we fasten tho badge in oui
buttonhole That does not seem much
and > el it is going to h.n o a fai extending psj etiological effect on tho
hundicds of thousands of citizens of
the Empne It ssill be like a shake

when thc exhibition is osei and jo'u

Of couiso time i^ nothing political

_   Kettle Valley, B.C.,
Janv3rci, 1,924.
Editor Thb.Lkdgb,
I think it mutt have been a
matter of wonder to those who take any
interest in politics as it certainly has been
to myself, how Mr. Bowser when cornered svould reconcile his speech at Sooke,
March 24th, 1923, with his confidential
" letter"to"Pfemief Brewster January 28th,
Extract from speech "Mr. Oliver
blames uie for the money sunk in the
P. G. E. I did not advise them to settle
svith the contractors. We had the persona! guarantee of Foley, Welch 8c
Stewart to finish tbe line, a guarantee
perfectly good for the $21,006,000 advanced. But Premier Oliver steps in
with h'ls insatiable desire to pose as a
great railway builder, and cancelled that
guarantee . ."
Extract from Bowser's letter:
"So far as I am concerned personally
and I think I may speak for tbe oppose
tion, I am -willing to agree not to oppose
or obstruct such settlement in the House
by taking a passive stand and at the same
time to statevthat I will net take any
advantage of such a settlement by critic-
izhj-i you for making same   .   .",    ,
Here is Mr. Bowser's explanation m _.
speech at Sidney, December 29th, 1923.
Extract from speech. > "In tbis letter
Mr. Bowser told Premier Brewster thai il
tbe Government took over the railway he
would not oppose or approve the plan in
the Legislature, but would take a passive
stand. But when he wrote the letter,
Mr. Bowser emphasized, be aad no idea
ofthe way the new government would
mishandle railway affairs."
This explanation of Mr. Bowser's is an
insult to the intelligence; of the electors.
The mishandling of the railway by the
Oliver Government after the agreement
was rnade, is another question altogether,
the real point is that the Oliver Govem-
mest made a thoroughly bad Agreement
....-.with the contractor*, thereby saddling
;-tb�� Province with a debt of some $ 20,-
X 000,000 which-has since swollen to some
t:'&5,ooo,oo6, and thai Mr. Bowser, who
7 now says   the agreement  sboald   neyeV
S'havs   been   made, while Leader of the
���j Opposition    wrote   the    letter  already
ffqeoted, saying that lie would not '6ppose

"The Bond Boy"
A thrilliug man hunt with blood
hounds, is one of the gripping features of Richard Barthelmess'
"The Bond Boy," which will be
the First National attraction at
fehe Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, Jan. 12th.
Barthelmess, as Joe Fewbolfe, is
aeeii as "the fugitive and he declares the taking of these scenes
made the cold chills run up and
down hiB spine because the experience was so realistic.
In the story Joe allows himself
to be convicted of a murder he did
not commit in order to- Bhield a
woman. Sentenced to die, he
makes a dramatic escape from jail.
Bloodhounds are put on his trail
and a hair raising pursuit  follows.
Barthelmess' portrayal parallels
"Tol'able David" in point of
power, and character. He is surrounded by a distinctive cast, the
principal members of which are
Mary Alden, cast as an unforgettable mother and Mary Thurman,
as an unwilling wife.
A grizzly bear barbecue will be
one of the features of the Winter
Carnival at Banff in  February.
Ten Canadian and three United
States teams have already entered

rhen to travel upon the sea wa�� to venture in great,
^danger it was usually thought wise by the voyagers-
:o propitiate the god of thp waters by making gifts to him
before setting sail, and oftentimes, when Neptune'dis-
_. played his wrath at sea, hujfcp sacrifices were' made to
him.    To our superstitious ancestors the son of Saturn
and Ops had great power over the waves, especially those
: \of tbe- sea, and had,.therefore, in his bands thewelfare .of
all  vessels and . their, human- and'other freight;.'The
���worship .of Neptune-'was'early "introduced, into Rome',
-Vand July 23rd;'"-NeptunaKa,''was-his feasti '_  .   ��.'
* As- science ' reduced; the"-   terrors ' of. .the} sea,   and
���"-adoration and -higher civilization- erased the "sometimes
"'" terrible-superstitions from the minds of tbe world, so .the
-Worship of and sacrifices to Neptune ceased, .but even to
- this day he is venerated hy many Latin.and Scandinavian
'-' -iaihsrs" and no ship crosses the equator Without some
' - recognition being made of hiin.    Usually tbis takes the
' form of a burlescue perforixiance in which those who are
. msfeias their first "crossing of the line" are initiated into
the mysteries of the deep.
The unique photograph reproduced above was taken
aboard the Canadian Tacific "Empress of France" while
on a "Round the World" cruise last year. Neptune
boarded the great liner in the early morning of the day
on which the '���line" was crossed, and held court. He
was attended by the Royal Barber and other- high
officials who assisted in the initiation ceremony. Most
of the passengers were summoned to his august presence
and were tried for their misdemeanour, punishment or
praise being, awarded without favor. Those who produced evidence of having been "initiated" before were.
of- course, exempt from trial.
This - year*, when Neptune boards tbe Empress of
Canada, which leaves New York on a Round the World
cruise on January 30th, his secretary will issue to alBhose
who pass before the God of the Waters, certificates to
that efiect,. which- wiil be countersigned by Captain S.
Robinson, R.N.R., who commands the vessel, and which,
besides being valuable souvenirs of the trip, leill exempt
