good and reliable news relative to this Claim.
We are able to state
that J.. W. Williams, of

property. .
The best news is that

to "hire and- fire", and
moneys to purchase necessary machinery, and' pay
wages, is an assurance that

in getting Morrison, who
with Dan McGillis, held a
Lease on the Claim from
1916 until the Fall of 1919,.
and they made the Mine pay.
On the expiry of this Lease
they offered to take another
Lease, paying; 15 per cent,
royalty, and this was refused, and since then the
property has not paid the

Memorial Ceremony
-At i- o'clock on Empire Day a,
good crowd assembled at the District War Memorial to pay their
respects to the departed soldiers.
Rev. E. A. St. G. Smyth opened
the ceremony with prayer after
which P. H. McCurrach delivered
the following address:-���
"Once more we aro privileged feo
gather round our War Memorial to
do honour to Our Noble Dead.
It seems >to me that the annual
recurrence of an event of. tbis
nature should be ia reminder to
each and every one of us that time
is hastening on, and that ife will
not be long before our children will
be taking our places in such gatherings and for this reason ife is our
bouhden duty to try to instil into
fehe minds of our young people a
proper respect .and regard for the
memory of the men whose fna'mes
appear on this Memorial. I cannot
help recalling the words that were
spoken ai the unveiling of this
Memorial, when the speaker referred to the occasion as being another "milestone" in the pathway,
of our history.
Iu looking back over the years
that have gone, ifc is scarcely possible to realize thafc nearly eleven
years have passed away since the
Powers that were in control ofthe
German people at that-time, laid
down the gauntlet and called their
people to armp, resulting in a war
that has left this world in 'such a
state of chaos that; even the minds
of our greatest statesmen today are
taxed to the utmost to find a
remedy for. But for every such
situation, there if, there must be a
remedy, aud we can only look forward to the future, supremely confident that there will arise men and-
women who will lead the world's
footsteps back again into the
proper paths from which, at the
present time, they seemed to have
strayed. Now, I know, at this
time you are not looking for any
long oration, and I believe that
most of the phases of the situation
have been very completely covered
-by those ,who have spoken around
this monument on previous occasions. Permit me just in word to
say that I feel sure that a gathering such as we have here today,
must have an uplifting influence
on all.who are. privileged to be
present, teaching us. to remember,
what I amafraid, we are too prone
to forget, rthe :.sacrifices' made by
those men who at their country's
call rallied, to. the.flag, held back
the foe,, and saved 'for., us. that
liberty - of action which. we, -; as
British people, claim as our, rights.
IfcJ.is.only natural that "we -,'ehould
think most about the": part,iplayed
in the _w a r _ by_ onto wn co un try m en',-
and I. think" we "may'-. be: pardoned'
if. we feel inclined to display a
somewhat, inordinate .pride in the
achievements .of- our lads, in holdr
ing thef. fort and keeping our grand,
old flag a flying four-.square.7to' the
winds oi heaven, f
; Let us. remember in our recollections down to ^posterity; riot to
forget those gallant gentlemen who,
when their ,King arid country
palled them, responded without a
murmur, and shoulder to. shoulder,
went. down, the lane into eternal
glory." .    .     )'-;)'-   .      '���

Empire Day at
Ingram -Bridge
Empire Day was, as usual, fittingly celebrated at Ingram
Bridge on Monday last when
games and'races of all kinds were
held. The celebration was held
under the auspices of the Women's
Institute and a good crowd was
present? The day was an ideal
one���not too hot and just enough
sun to be welcome. A football
match was played between Rock
Creek and Kettle Valley, the 7
"former team winning by 2 goals.
Four innings of baseball were
played between teams from/Midway and Greenwood. This game
created considerable excitement
and amusement. Greenwood won
by a score of 8 to 7.   V
R. A. Brown, of Midway, had
a refreshment stand and did a
land office business.
Altogether the day was an enjoyable one, especially for the
children.and the Women's Institute is to be congratulated on
holding such an appropriate celebration.

Where Co-operation Is Needed
Tlie opinion is frequently expressed that Canada suffers from too much
-Government, and legislation, and with a Federal Parliament ancl nine Provincial Legislatures for something less than nine million peoplo, there is probably some reason for such an opinion being more or less prevalent, and to
support the suggestions periodically advanced in favor of the union of the
three Maritime Provinces, into one, ancl tho merging of the Prairie Provinces,
thus reducing-the number of Legislatures to, five. But whether such amalgamations aro now feasible is another question, aud,"in view of the fact that
ultimately Canada will have a population of many times nine millions, it is
���open to argument whether such combinations would be wise in the long run.
Hut that there is room for a much larger measure of cordial co-operation
in matters of legislation between the Federal Parliament on the one hauo
and the various Provincial Legislatures on the other hand, ancl between the
Legislatures of adjoining Provinces, and, in fact, between all Provinces, is
���fhardiy open to serious discussion. The framers of the Act of Confederation
did their work exceedingly well, but the B.N.A. Act should not be regarded
as the laws of the Modes and Persians, unalterable. Constitutional enactments, however wise in J8I57, are not necessarily suitable a century or even
��� hair a century later.
It is proposed to call a conference of Provincial representatives to give
������consideration to suggested-amendments to the B.N.A. Act designed to curb
the- arbitrary veto power of the Senate over legislation which meets the approval of the elected representatives of the people in fhe House of Commons
along lines somewhat similar to .hose which finally had lo come in Great. Britain in order to .restrict the power of tho House of Lords. There are, how-
-ever, other subjects of equal or even greater importance which might well rc-
���ceive attention at such a conference.
For example,'not only should the powers of the. Senate come under review,
:buf the constitution of Ihai. body if il is lo be continued as au integral part of
our legislative machinery. If stands t.o reason that the four rapidly growing
Western" Provinces will not be content for all limp, to have their representation in the Senate limited to that of the three small Maritime Provinces,
namely, twenty-four Senators for Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Aiberta and British Columbia, and a like number' for Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Prince
Kdward Island. Certainly if such a" basis of Senate representation is to be
maintained much longer, then the nowers of the Senate must bo greatly
..restricted. "
Again, while the- 13.N.A. Act. clearly defines the respective spheres of the
Dominion Parliament -and .the .Provincial Legislatures in regard to many, subjects, if conl'c-r.yon-hoth-Federal and Provincial liodie'.i legislative.and administrative authority .in. regard,, to; certain other, matters,".wiUV-.l.ho result that

-- ~" Should be Preserved
The game and game- fish of British
Columbia constitute one of, the' province's great/ asseis, aii asset which
pays dividends every-year in money,
in pleasure, in good health and In good
advertising. It ia an asset which is
well worth protecting, but unfortunately, it.is diminishing. We are living
on our game-.capiial, and that is poor
economy. Our furs yield us about
?3,000,000 annually. About ?2,000.-
000 worth of game meat- is consumed annually. And tourists and
residents spend from ?'1,000,'000 to ?6,-
000,000 yearly for hunting and fisfiing
equipment and incidentals. But unless we take some action, these-sums
will gro\v smaller year by year.���Vancouver Province.

Railway Deal
Not Contemplated
(Penticton Herald)
For several weeks.past wild and
weird stories have been circulating
in .Penticton relative to the supposedly imminent purchase by the
C.P.R. of the Grand Forks-Princeton line of the Great Northern Ky.
These stories were magnified to
the extent that "plans" of the
railway, following the purchase,
to move the headquarters and shops
of the Kettle Valley Railway from
Penticton were freely circulated
and given some credence, as rumors
always are. -> -
In order to clarify the situation,
The Herald wired the president of
the Kettle Valley Railway and has
received the following telegram in
reply from 0. E. S.ockdill, assistant to President Coleman;
