Rod and Gun Club Meeting
The Greenwood and District Rod and
Gun Club held a regular meeting in
the Old School House at Midway on
Friday evening last.
President G. S. Walters occupied the
chair and 26 members from' the district
wei'e present. In the absence of Secretary Major Gray, his duties were
undertaken by G. F. Swanuell of Rock
Creek. 'Considerable correspondence
was dealt with arid the chief matter
arising, from this was the question of a
proposed "Game Sanctuary" comprising 640 square miles between the Main
Kettle River and the West Fork of the
Kettle River. Th<*Penticton Fish and
Game Association is seeking the support of similar clubs in the interior for
this sanctuary and has asked the Greenwood and District Club, as being the
one most vitally interested, to canvass
the settlers in the proposed district.for
their sanction and assistance in having
the preserve established. ' Messrs.
Wilson.'McMynn, Richter, Mowat and
several other members spoke strongly
in favor of the scheme and by unanimous vote it was decided to do all possible for having the outlined district
set apart for the preservation of game.
The delegate to the Game Conservation Board convention on March 28th
at Vancouver, Harry Martin, then gave
his report. To say the least, every
member was surprised at the amount
of business brought up at the convention and delegate Martin was heartily
congratulated on the very able manner
in which he covered practically all the
points discussed before the Game
The chairman pointed out from the
report, the most crucial matter affecting this district and these were discussed by the meeting and instructions
given to the secretary concerning- same.
Mr. Martin spoke very highly of the
chairman of the Game Board, M. B.
Jackson, who cut short a discussion on
big game hunting iu the north, in order
that interior delegates might be given
more time to be heard on matters concerning- their districts. Recommendations, as put-forward by.Mr. Martin
received strong support and it is hoped
that some of the changes suggested
will be included in the 1924 game laws.
Fishing.- regulations and the best
methods to be recommended for better
preservation of fish in this district was
also taken up. The invasion of the
local fishing streams by U.S. fishermen
came in for strong criticism. The re-
comendation of this club for setting
the license qf U. S. visitors at $10.00
for one year or less received unanimous
support, at the convention and some
delegates.advocated an increase to $25.
Andrew Porter .of Myncaster and'J.
Iy. Bush of Midway,, both enthusiastic
angiersj laid some very interesting
facts before tfie meeting which served
to show'.the ueeel of more "stringent
regulations particularly- during spawning, period. One member spoke of having, seen a big catch of fish the pre-
vious Sunday from Fish lake, the same
having been taken from the shallow
spawning ground at; one end of the
lakevaiid the 'successful' anglers boasting-that the fish would not" bite but
could be hooked, through the gills. - ���������,.

.-'��� General regret'was expressed that

That the shooting of Wm. Brown, 15

inevitable sequel to an enraged state of
mind of the deceased, who had ��� been

The political bird is with us, some in
fine plumage, others somewhat bedraggled, but all with one object to catch, if
possible, the elusive worm.
We see in a dictionary a politician defined as "one versed in the art of governing" or "devoted to politics." Might we
dare to suggest to Mr. Nuttall that in his
next edition he cuts out the first definition.

The reeling of discouragement, amounting in some instances almost I.o
despondency and pessimism, tlifit lias prevailed in Canada dining recent years
Is passing away. IOvldenees of this are ?een everywhere, ar.d "���while there
arc still some croakers aud prophets of blue ruin their number is steadily ami
more and more rapidly declining, while ihe ranks are tilling up wiih Canadians
who are openly giving proof of their confidence ln tho 'Dominion and its future.
A .study of the Canadian situation, viewed from all angles, provides ample
support, tor this more hopeful feeling, aud goes to show that it is based on a
solid foundation ot! facts. If this country suffers from one great national
fault, ii is that, as a people, we take too short a view ami are too impatient for
results. We are a young- country and are too apt to fall into the errors of
youth. In au old country like .England they do not expect to achieve great
reforms over night, or In a year, or a decade. They realize, that It has taken generations to effect reforms and advancements from which they now-bene-
lit. Hut too many people in Canada "want what tliey want when they want
it." and become discouraged and discontented if ii is not immediately forthcoming.
Having for some time past been engaged in discussing our difficulties and
handicaps, lei us, for a change, take a look at tlie brighter, truer side of tlie
Din-tag the twelve months, ended Mareh last. Canada's trade was almost
two billion dollars, and represented an increase of two hundred millions of
dollars over the previous yeaiv. And whereas in 1922 our imports exceeded
exports .by over seven million dollars, in the year ended Mareh last, our exports exceeded imports by oyer $150,000,000.
During this last fiscal year Canada manufactured and exported 15,390
motor inicks as compared with only ;;,720 the previous year, and passenger
aud-mobiles exported Increased by over 9,000.
Canada's Hour mills in this last year sold 11,175,000 barrels ot flour
abroad, or 1,500,000 more barrels than a year ago. In pulp and paper Canada esporied ? 1-1:2,000,000, or $20,000,000 more than a year ago. Jn lumbering and mining, llie same story of progress is recorded.

the Result of Habit of
tatever may be said on platforms,
the pre-war mind is unable to conceive of the outlawry of war; and parenthetically it is largely because of
the ridiculous deference exacted from
young men for the opinions of their
elders that the tradition ofthe inevitability of war has been so long perpetuated. So long as Lhat is accepted as a matter of course, war must
survive just as the duel survived, in
spite of legislation, as long as it was
a matter of course for a man of honor
to demand ''satisfaction" with the
sword or the pistol. Tho-result of
such a habit of thought is visible less
in this country than on the continent,
but evidence of II. was wry apparent
iu the recent debate ou the air force.
Tho pre-Avar thinker, try as he may,
cannot get it out of his head lhat armaments are. built to bo used. In his
public speeches he i.s more likely to
talk of them as an illustration of tlie
old maxim about wishing for peace
and preparing for war. AVhen ho i.s
discussing the armaments of his own
country he will always say that they
ave merely for protection. But directly he looks ;il. the armaments of another country he can only soo them
as something, aimed deliberately a I
hitn. If the post-war mind cannot
escape from that line of argument, war
remains inevitable.���Reginald Berkeley, M.1'., in the Spectator.

Possibilities-for Canada' in
Britain Are Unlimited
The .market possibilities for Canadian store cattle iu Great Britain are
almost unlimited, J. H. Grisdale,
deputy minister of agriculture, told
the .agriculture committee of. the
House of Commons, Ottawa. With
Ireland shipping as many as one million head per year to England and
Scotland, tlie-market is there for Canadian store cattle. Up to the present
Canada has only shipped si?small number owing to the cost of marketing, he
said. The market for chilled beef in
the United Kingdom might be made
very profitable if the position pt' the
Canadian production could bo made

Doing Away With-Sleep
English Scientist Claims Discovery of
Substitute for Real-Thing
It ls with mixed feelings that ona
learns of the discovery by an English scientist of a process which will
do away with the need of sleep. During sleep the weary brain-cells are recharged with vital force, which ls
electro-chemical ia character. Dr.
David Fraser Harris has devised an
apparatus for recharging the brain-
cells with tho vital force of the requisite auantity and quality. So It
may be that, iD'the near future, w.e
shall bo ablo to dispense,with sleep,
and obtain in a few minutes all tho
recuperative benefit whicli 'mankind
has heretofore gained by "drinking
deep of all the blessedness of sleep."
Time can thus bo saved���but how
much would bo lost! For sleep ia
not desirable and desired only because' It recharges fhe brain-cells.
It brings merciful oblivion to tho
woes and c troubles of life. It stays
hasty and ill-considered action, and
prepares the way for tho wiso second
.thought Not alone In a physical
sense is it "tired Nature's sweet re;
storer." For many other reasons do
most of us feel like echoing the sentiment of Sancho Panza, "God bless the
man who first invented sleep."
Somehow we are compelled to
���doubt if the scientific substitute for
sleep will ever displace the real thing,
even if it were toprove as effective as
its discoverer hopes. It may be used
in emergencies, to enable people to
keep going-when they are fagged out
and have no time to sleep. But Nature's, ways are best.���Hamilton

staged with the assistance of rangers of the United States forestry
department, furnishes one of the
biggest thrills ever screened in

luce's thrilling drama' of the old

Miles of pine trees, dried brush
and undergrowth were set ablaze
to get the spectacular scenes which
carry oue of the big "punches" of
this exciting drama. The filming
of the lire scenes was accomplished
at the cost of many burned fingers

valtve Association occupied thc chair ill a
most acceptable manner and introduced
the speakers.
The first speaker was Fred A.Smith, of
Cascade, who devoted his remarks to
eulogizing Hon. W. J. Bowser and John
McKie, the conservative candidate.
While John McKie told of his successes
while canvassing thc two forks of the
Kettle river and was very optimistic as to
the result of the vote in that part ofthe
The main speaker Hon. Mr. Bowser
was in fine form and made a fighting and
.spirited address holding his large audience for i\< hcurs. This was his 36th
meeting since January and has spoken to
large audiences in the past week at Keremeos, Oliver aud Penticton. He referred
to the community singing and to the excellent character of Mr. McKie.
He divided his speech into three parts
viz: "The Third Party," the "Oliver
administration" and as to "what hopes
he has for the'future of his party."
The speaker said Gen. McRae had
never taken any interest in politics until
a few mouths ago and after he spent over
$43,000 to help the Provincial Party, Mr.
Bowser then became suspicious. Gen.
McRae made the new party, bought it
and owns it and this case Mr. McRae was
a dangerous man to be a premier. He
mention why McRae had entered the
political arena, referring to the timber
agreement made by the former government which does uot now suit the Genr.
He read an article from the Searchlight
in which McRae refused to accept the
leadership ofthe Provincial Party as he
felt that as he owns so much timber in
the province and as his political enemies
would criticize him he would be a drag
to his party. Mr. Bowser predicted that
there would not'be a member of the Provincial Party in the new legislature.
After eight years of Liberal rule Mr.
Bowser declared the country was still iu
bad financial -condition. He said that
when he left office in 1916 no country
could borrow to advantage, The debt of
the province ill 1916 was about #19,000,000
aud all this could not be charged to the
former government. In answer,to a.question ih the -legislature - the. debt -of the
province- at "that ".time was - $59,000,000.
