Municipal Elections

Monday Evening, Jan. 17th
The past week has been a stirring one in Greenwood municipal
circles, what with talk of rival
slates for aldermen, competing
candidates for school trustees, and
wars and rumours of wars
political galore.
It has been an open secret for
some time that Mr. and Mrs.
William Madden had determined
to effect a revolution in the City
government of Greenwood if such
could be obtained and they are
reputed to have been very active
in a search for suitable aldermanic
material. 7 At the end, however,
it simmered down to two candidates on the Madden slate Mr."
Joseph DuHamel and Mr. Matt
Maloney. Mr. DuHamel's nominations papers are understood to
have been prepared but for some
reason were not filled. Mr.
Maloney's papers- were put in by
Mrs. Madden but were found not
to be in order. He was sent for
to rectify the mistakes; but when
he arrived near the closing hour
of two o'clock it was found that
he had not the necessary $500.00
qualification. As a result the remaining candidates went in' by
acclamation. ���'.'.'���.:

The Kettle Valley Game Reserve, one of the largest sanctuaries of wild life in the province,
has been cancelled by order-in-
council, says a"Victoria report.
Game Board officials found that
the reserve was interfering too
much with miners, prospectors
and settlers in the Kettle Valley
country, as it prevented them
from having firearms in their possession, and prohibited all hunting. Increasing population in the
district affected made the continuance of the reserve undesirable. Residents complained that
the existence of the reserve was a
hardship on them.

Canada and Japan
Half Million SHU Needed.
Dr. U. M. Tory, president of the University oC Alberta and chuirman. of
tlie National .Research Coiim.il of Canada, represented Canada at Uie scientific
conference of all countries having an outlet on the Pacific, which was held, a
few months ago in Japan, and in a recent address before the Canadian Club
of-Saskatoon he gave some of his impressions of Japan and its people Dr.
Tory's highly entertaining and instructive address contained much food for
thought on the part of Canadians.
In extent ol: area, Dr. Tory pointed out, Japan is about three-firths the
size of Alberta and Saskatchewan, and of that area only about twenty per cent,
is capable of cultivation.' Nevertheless, the islands of Japan are inhabited by
almost sixty millions of people. Therefore, Japan, like the British Isles, must
provide for ihe sustenance of its people by the importation of enormous quantities of foodstuffs, and for their-employment in other'ways than agriculture.
Japan, has as a, consequence become a highly industrialized nation.
Japan is frcquenlly referred to as the Great Britain of the Pacific, and ihe
description is an apt one. Not only is there an analogy as noted in the preceding, paragraph, but Japan, like Britain, has developed a large and growing
merchant marine and is offering effective competition iu the. markets of Pacific
countries, lu another respect Japan is adopting British methods. It is importing raw materials from other lands, converting them into articles of
manufacture, aud then reselling the finished product even in fhe very coun-
tries from' which the raw materials were imported.
For example, Japan is importing raw cotton from ���the .United States, manufacturing it. and selling the manufactured articles in the,United States in
competition with American and British manufacturers after paying heavy-
United Stales customs duties. '*      ��� '
In the first six months of last year Japan imported forty million more
bushels- of wheal than in-the .corresponding period of the previous year. Flour
mills aro being erected to grind this wheat into flour, not only to supply the
home demand, but for export.
Japan, said Dr. Tory, is just as keenly interested in promoting its export
trade, and just as much concernodi about an adverse balance of trade, as Canadians are iu respect to this Dominion. The Japanese realize that they must
import huge, quantities of food, and they are determined to pay for these imports through the sale, of the products of their industries. This is a silualion
of which Canada and the world-must take cognizance.
7, No people stand higher iu the estimation and confidence of the people of
Japan than do those of the-British Empire. The English language is taught in
all the schools, and realizing that English is, and to an ever Increasing- extent
wiil be, the language of commerce, Japan is in every -way encouraging its people to learn it so that within a generation or two every educated person in
Japan will have a command of the language. Every year, too, the brightest
students from Japanese universities are sent all over the world to learn everything in. lho arts and sciences that the best thought and the latest invention has to offer. '-.,'���' ;' *.
Canada has a-golden opportunity before it for the development of trade,
and commerce with Japan on a truly gigantic scale, Ths Dominon has for sale
. an. abundance, of many of the things which Japan" lacks and must buy. As a.
Bntish. people there is a. friendly feeling for us. The two countries face one
another across the Pacific with lines of communication, already established.
One thing remain's for the people of Cana'da to learn and to do if full advantage is to be taken of the opportunities awaitug it in Japan and 'the Orient as
a whole -.
Canada is a-young, large, ;.and undeveloped country- Japan, Is an old land
with a history under one ruling-dynasty dating back to hundreds of yea.rs
��� before Christ. The family of the present Emperor has ruled over Japan in an
unbroken line for 2,600 years. Japan is a small" country," densely populated.
It is fully developed and highly industrialized. Its people are intensely patriotic,
of'a high order of intelligence, and very .proud. To tho extent that Canadians
are obsessed, with the Western idea that the Japanese are an inferior people,
they will fail in making headway in Japan. Canadians will have to dobusiuess
With them as with, equals. If-will not do to offer to Japan our third rate or

Parliament Asked for Further Sum for
Home  Bank   Relief ,.-
Canada's Parliament is to bo asked
to votella further sum of half a million
dollars for the relief of Home Bank
depositors. Three million dollars have
already been voted asd disbursed in
payments to all depositors for_sums
under ?50 and to a considerable number having on deposit over ��500 and
who made affidavits that they were
in need.
All tho money voted by Parliament
has now; been expended and there furs
still claims totalling half a million
dollars, whicli the judges of the exchequer court, who heard the claims
of depositors for sums, over $500 hold
have just claims and should "be
recognized along with.the others.
Their lordships are prepared to
make a strong recommendation to the
Dominion Government in connection
with these'claims and will ask Parliament to vole the money. No new
claims, however, will be received as
the time has now expired.

Fur Traders Encounter Difficulties.on
Trail to Edmonton
The trials ancl tribulations of winter travel in the northern wilds were
recounted by a party of fur traders
who fought their way through blizzards, snowdrifts and bitter cold, to
Edmonton. ���"".-
Joe Larcombe, a northern pioneer,
was the leader of the group which
included four .other trappers.
Each had his own background of
misadventure, which forced him to
"hit the trail" toward civilization at
this time of tho season and all pooled their resources and banded"together for the trip.
The party had five horse-drawn
sleighs and came down from the Arctic regions by way of the Athabasca
river. In places the ice was piled from
15 to 20 feet high ancl the little caravan was forced to travel between
huge ice cliffs and other hazards. In
other places the river was covered
witli. a thin sheet of ice which broke
as soon as the horses put foot; on it.
Several times the .. animals ���" "wont
through but were rescued. To negotiate the most, dangerous' stretches of
the river, the trappers unhar'nassed
the horses and pushed ihe sleighs to
safer ice. Constantly two niembers of
the party - preceded the' sleigh fleet,
breaking test holes to spot the'safest
way.  ������'������".'
The men faced extreme hardships-
on their long trek. The mercury at
times skidded to 30 and. 40 below
zero. During one night's halt, the
caravan was caught in a "howling
blizzard ancl in the morning two
sleighs were buried under heavy snow
drifts and had to be shovelled out. The
men were pretty weir worn out when
they "reached Edmonton. "���
May Carry Out Suggestion
Government Likely to Test Conditions
For Navigation of Hudson Strait)
The Ottawa correspondent of a
Winnipeg newspaper says: .
"Reports are current that the Government is likely to adopt the'sugges-
tion often made- In the -House of
Commons-in the last two years and
send one of the Canadian Government
Merchant Marine boats into Hudson's
Bay next summer.
"The proposal is to test out. the
'length of time it is open. It is also
proposed to find out just what kind
of weather they get in, Hudson's Bay.
"Frederick Palmer, the eminent
British engineer, who is going to Port
Nelson next summer to investigate
and report on all conditions, may go
in by boat instead of up the route of
the/railway, as his investigations liave
primarily to do wth harbor works- and
feasibility of developing a harbor properly. 'Whether the Government has
put up to him the question of whether
Churchill would make a better terminal than Port Nelson cannot be definitely learned but it is believed here lie
will carefully investigate both ports."

According to a recent statement
of E. W. Beatty, Chairman and
President of the Canadian Pacific
Railway, the record of the railway's
common stock as at June 30th, 1926,
indicates that 52y2 per cent, is held
in Great Britain, 19 y2 per cent, in
Canada and 19 per cent, in the
United States.
All previous records have been
broken by the salmon pack in British .Columbia for 1926. It is estimated that the. total pack for this
year,-whsn, all returns^ are in, will
be,,in round.figures, 1,900,000 cases.
The nearest,approach to this was in
1924, when slightly more than 1,700,-
000 cases were put up.

Now comes a novel from the
pen of one bred within the confines of British Columbia; a story
that touches a new phase of life
in the West and develops a theme
that has seldom been touched on
before. It is "Hulodwget," _ a
story of the northern coast, written by B. A. .McKelvie, and published by J. M. Dent & Sons,
Ltd., of Toronto and.London.
Huldowget is something new in
Canadian literature. It is well
worth reading.

As, a result of discussions ��t the
Imperial Conference in London the
cheap passage" scheme under which
British immigrants have been proceeding to Canada during the year
is expected to be renewed. The
most.iimportant result of the conference, however, will probably be the
extension of the scheme of training
prospective British immigrants for
Dominion farms and, instead of the
100,,men secured by Canada in this'
manner this year, it is expected that
���with the broadening of the scheme
from l,20(Tf5-l,500 men will be obtained next year. A new ten weeks'
course in simple farm training will
be; introduced and will run concurrently with the four months' <our3e
