The School Board
A meeting of the School Trustees
was held on Monday afternoon. Secretary- G. / S. Walters presented the
estimates for 1928 which were approved
after a few minor changes. Statistics'
read by the Secretary showed that 46
per cent, qf City tax collection was expended on education and upkeep of
the school. A pleasing feature to offset the hard jolt of this expense was
the splendid reports of both high
school and public school inspectors oji
the progress-of scholars and the able
management of the teachers. The
Trustees are to be congratulated on
the close interest they have shown in
the school., welfare and few districts
can show such amicable and pleasant
conditions as exist here between
trustees, teachers, parents arid scholars,
all this tending for the welfare, even
though costly,. of the growing generation. The one adverse comment to be
made is the undue amount of time
spent on the rink by many pupils with
undoubted detrimeitf; to their school
progress and pafents are well advised
to note this. ,

Council Has Busy Session
A three hour session fell to the lot of
the City Fathers on Monday evening,'
there   being   in   attendance    Mayor
Gulley,-'and Aldermen Peterson, Smith,
Lofstad, Taylor and Forshaw.
Endorsation was given to a resolution from the Nanaimo City Council
petitioning that no further charters
be granted to private clubs in any
qrganized district without the approval
of the municipal authorities.
Finance matters occupied the attention of the Council for a lengthy time
the City - Clerk having concise and
ready information available for practical discussion both from the Councillors and Bond-holders point of view
and there is reasonable hope of a still
more amicable arrangement being
made regarding the outstanding debentures .
The Auditor's report was reviewed .
and. accepted, the usual number of
copies being ordered sent ,to the
Trustee for distribution to the Bondholders and' Financial houses leaving
sufficient for local requirements.
After obtaining statistics from the
Clerk the Lighting committee experienced the pleasure of presenting the
first favorable report of that department and they forecast a small margin
of profit for the year if enabled to
complete the wqrk already outlined.
The Health committee reported four
householders not making 'use of the
scavenger and referred tc, complaints
of nuisances emanating from two business places in the City. Instructions
were given to the City Clerk and
Health.'Officer to take action' for
remedying these cases.
The Finance committee ' submitted
proposed arrangements for paying off
arrears owing t'o the City by some of
those listed by the Trustee during his"
recent visit and the proposals were
accepted as being satisfactory, other
delinquents not prepared toi pay up
will have all services cut-off.
The policy adopted - by the Council
during the last few years of consistent
upkeep of the water and fire system
along with the razing of useless buildings  and the fire prevention propaganda steadily.r.distributed has at last
brought about a revision of fire insurance rates affecting all owners of the
town.   The visits and inspections made
by the  various  officials of the  Fire
Underwriters Association  during  1927
resulted in a substantial reduction of
premiums   commencing. January   1st    .
1928.   This will enable the Council to -
increase   the   insurance  amounts   on
some   buildings   at   present   greatly '
under-insured .without further drain on   ���'
the City finances for premiums.   ' - ���
The Chief"of Police was 'ordered'to '
destroy dogs on which dog tax has not
been  paid,  this power being legally
given under section 4 of Bylaw 42.
Four applications for land rental
were considered and the tenders- being
so close the City Clerk was instructed
to deal with all four applicants and
endeavor to make an arrangement
whereby each ,of them would be apportioned a suitable piece of ground.
It was decided that either the'
present pound be repaired or a new
enclosure be made at a point to be
decided upon later, pound committee
to report after investigation.

Three New Planes Aro Under
Btruction In Winnipeg
Application for a charter has been
made by the Canadian Aircraft Company of Winnipeg, incorporated at
$50,000. This company which has already three of its new Mallard type
planes under construction in its Lombard Street shops, expects to find a
growing market for airplanes in
Western Canada. The machines are
3-passenger single-bay biplanes with
Rolls Royce engines, costing $2,350.
Commercial aviation is making

. With Lhe Dominion Parliament and practically all the Provincial Legislatures now in session, the people of Canada" are having their attention
directed to questions of public policy, public finance, and public administration. The budget speech at Ottawa, and-tke annual financial statements of
the several Provincial Treasurers, with the debates which arise thereon, are
of outstanding interest and value in focusing attention upon, and compelling
consideration of, the vital subjects of revenues versus expenditures, and
their effect upon taxation and public debt.
Prior to the opening of Parliament and the Legislatures, members of the
various Governments were busy receiving deputations from organizations of
all kinds, including financial, industrial and commercial institutions, organized farmers, and numerous social feform and benevolent societies. In the
vast majority of cases these deputations advocated certain changes in existing laws calculated to advance the interests or cause in which they were,
more especially interested. Also in the majority of cases, representations
were made in support of reductions in existing taxation, and, coupled with
such representations. Governments were urged to embark upon additional
services, ov provide new institutions, all of which called for large increases
iu public expenditure and the creation of new administrative services.      ,
The problem with which all Governments are thus confronted, and
which is presented lo them every year, is most complex, and it is to be feared
lhat many of these deputations do not give serious enough consideration to
it. Many spokesmen for these deputations seem to labor under the delusion,
���a fairly general one,���that Governments have some magic means of finding money without raising it by means of taxation.
For example, in all Provinces there is a persistent and growing demand
that very much larger amounts be spent- in the construction of good, all-
weather, highways. Once built such roads must be maintained, thus for every
mile constructed5 there is an increased annual charge for up-keep. But coupled with these insistent demands there is the further complaint that automobile licence fees are too high and should be reduced, while municipalities
are ever demanding-that,, while the Provincial Government shall build and
take over the maintenance of roads, the auto licence fees should be divided
. with the municipalities. In other words, the Government should spend more
and collect less.
Note another example. .The people of Canada demand the establishment
of a system of Old-Age Pensions. The Federal Government agrees, and
undertakes to pay fifty per cent, of such pensions, provided the, Provincial
Governments pay the other fifty per, cent. British Columbia, Saskatchewan
and Manitoba agree to enter the scheme. All parties in the Legislatures arc
in favor of doing so. Then, in Manitoba, the Government proposes tlie imposition of an additional tax in order to raise the money wherewith to pay
such pensions,- and immediately objections are raised.
In Saskatchewan within recent months the Government-has. been askea
to provide for a free consultative clinic, for a school for the blind and the
deaf, for an institution for1 the care of juvenile delinquents, larger' facilities
for the training of teachers, extension of the educational system, another
sanatoria to combat, tuberculosis, a large extension of the road building programme, including the gravelling of roads, etc., etc. The Government pro-
' ceeds to some extent to. give effect to a-number of these requests and to as-
' sist in securing the necessary funds proposes'a tax on gasoline. This meets
-with approval, but immediately a demand is made that the auto licence fee
be substantially reduced, the effect of which would be to largely offset the
increase in revenue to be derived from the gasoline   tax,   and   leaving   th����
"Government without the means to provide those very things the people had
Referring to this aU loo general attitude on the part of people, and the
increasing demand for "free" services of one kind and another, the Provincial Treasurer of Saskatchewan took occasion in his budget speech to point
out lhat "there ain't no such animal" as a "free" service. Any service if not
then the money with which to foot the state's bills must be secured from
individuals in the mass by way of taxes.
The responsible heads of all our Canadian institutions and organizations
should devote a portion of their timc in training for such responsible posts
by taking a course in economics. .
Alberta Oil Development
Royalitc No. 4 Continues To Ee Uie
Largest Producer  In  Canada
One company alone, the Royalite, is
drilling seven wells in " the Turner
Valley, near Calgary, in quest of oil.
This is an Imperial subsidiary. Others arc the Dalhousie and Foothills
compames. Altogether the Imperial
is interested in more than 20 drilling
wells in this oil field. Its Royalitc No.
4 continues to be the biggest producer in Canada after having maintained steady output of more than
500 barrels of crude naphtha daily
for three and a half years.

What To Do and What Not To Do To
[X Get the Best Results
:'(,.Mr. Spalding Black, on the staff of
the Salada Tea Company, recently
prepared an interesting leaflet entitled
"The Art Of Correct Tea Making."
Approximately 26,000,000 cups of tea
are consumed every day in Canada,
and yet it is doubtful if one-tenth of
this number is prepared with the
necessary care to bring., out the full
flavor of .the tea leaf so that this
stimulating' and refreshing drink
may be thoroughly enjoyed. The following is from "The Art Of Correct
Tea Making":
"Tea is one of the kindliest blessings of Nature. In Its:- comforting
indulgence one can lose the worries
of the day and forget tlie fatigue of
effort.   ''
"The full joy of a cup of this gracious beverage can only be reached
when fine quality tea is used and ceremonial care exercised in its preparation to draw from each tiny leaf-the
essence of flavor and refreshment
with which it has been endowed by
"In the countries of the East,
where tfie drinking of*tea has been
enjoyed for a thousand years or more,
the subject of preparing the leaf for
consumption has become a fine art
and a ceremony, but the" full, delicious
refreshment and healthful stimulation may be extracted from the fragrant tea-leaves if the following rules
are followed exactly:���
. : "Rule No. 1:���The best quality of
tea must be'used. The tea also musl
be fresh, to yield the full goodness.
"Rule No. 2:���The quality of the
water used will affect the flavor of
the beverage in the cup. Draw fresh
cold water and bring it to a hard
'bubbly' boil. Never use water that
has been boiled .before. Sometimes
chlorine put in water to purify it will
completely change the flavor of tlie

Pills did. for her as follows :���"I sufr
fered for a long time with:my,nerves
and a general run-down condition. I
grew so. weak that I had to, lie in bed
a part ofi every day. T could not do
any work; and, was taking medicine
all the time/ trying one medicine ���after another, I was advised .to try Dr;
Williams' Pink Pills and. I have reason to be thankful that I acted on
this advice, as this was the first medicine that gave me any relief, and in
a comparatively short tiriie restored
me to the blessing of good health.
When I think of tlie marvellous good
these pills did me, I. can most highly

The Intricacies
_Of Trade
Strange Cargoes Brought To^Our
Shores From Foreign
Now that whole pages of the newspapers are- given up to    the    tariff
schedules of .the' budget one "cannot
fail to observe how the imports of a
country consist of every imaginable
kind of odds and ends. - '
There is nothing too trivial to be
'   listed for customs purposes and" to
have its little tax levied upon it as it
enters at the gateways of the country���grasses,  seaweeds and mosses,
*- cocoons, the hair    of   goats,    rags,
waste paper, rivets, ��� rods, wicks for
, wax candles, boot laces, jule, junk,
.tassels and-  secret   society   badges.
The tariff has got 'em on the list.
It is a complicated world we live
in and the needs of modern civilization are beyond counting.- Those simple-minded- persons  who regard the
total of Canada's imports as a huge
, sum of money that should be .spent
right here in the country to the vast
benefit of its people have no conception at all of the intricate-trade and'
" commerce that necessarily goes on in
the world of today.   One   might   as
well ask a beekeeper to live on noth-.
ing but honey as ask a country to
consume  its "Own"products and buy
nothing from neighboring countries.
Some idea of ..the variety of things
tliat enter Canada from the outside
world is given by the Daily Post of
Sydney, Nova Scotia. It tells of the
���fillips tliat enter that port and name
some .of "thc many things they hoist
from "their holds "to the Sydney-docks.
The^Carnia arrives from Genoa with
sienna earth    and    candied   citrons,
���olive oil and bitter oranges. The Sau-
gus  from  Genoa lists- on its cargo
marble clippings, straw hats, quick-
-.fiilver ancl almonds, manna and ber-
"stantinople arrives with gum traga-
���canth valonia,    opium    and    canary
seed. The Montevideo steams in from
Barcelona with tiles and lambskins,
licorice root.and saffron. The Volcn-
���dam, from Rotterdam, brings berlin
blue, sunflower seeds, monkey skins,
'bloaters   and v sausages.     The   Fort
���George rolls in from Trinidad with
chicle, gold,  fruits and a cargo as
various as any of them.
This little list at one Canadian.port
was made in a - casual way by tho
editor of the Sydney Post. The list of
curious imports at that one port
alone fcould, doubtless, be extended
into columns' of type if there were
any necessity for it. But thc list as
given affords a glimpse of the fact
that any modern country is necessarily a market for ten thousand things
of which most of us do not even
know the. names nor ��� comprehend the

Does. Not Seem To Matter What
Kind Of Weapons Are Used
As Long As Wars Last
The United Slates Government,
through the medium of Secretary of
State Kellogg, hasanriuonced its willingness to banish submarines entirely as weapons of war. Many
American newspapers express approval of the idea. For instance, the
St. Paul Pioneer Press says tliat
civilized nations disgrace themselves
by countenancing the existence of the
It is not likely that the proposal
will get.very far. Some' nations will
attach more importance to the submarine than ��� others because it may
have a niore marked bearing'on their
fight for life in time of war. Anyhow, it is pretty hard- to draw the
line about the implements to be used
by civilized nations when they go to
war. Getting punctured by a submarine is not much worse than getting
a whiff of a deadly gas that eats out
a man's lungs. And after all there
may not be much .���difference between
getting a whiff of a deadly gas than
being blown to bits by. a high explosive shell or ripped open by a bayonet.
There seems to be talk of civilized
nations being asked to give up the
The plain fact is that when a nation comes to death grips with another nation it is going to use any
effective weapon that can be placed
in its hands.-A man with his back
to the wall does not stop to ponder
what conventions he signed about thc

��� slash, or slug with whatever instru-
I ment he can get.
I Civilized man might as well reai-
' ize that war cannot be made nice;
he might as well realize that when
civilized nations get at each' other's
throats as they did in the last war
they are going to use all the
weapons they are capable of devising,
and the next war the-people can expect'to find all the ordinary fighting
weapons in use once'more, along with
plenty of- poison, suffocating chemicals, aeroplanes that "drop death, and
a lot of other things tliat have not
yet been heard of.
The biggest job ahead of" the civilized nations is to try to get it into
���the heads of the people that it will
be much better not'to have these
kinds of wars. ��� Manitoba Free

Neglecting Home Heroes
Canada Appears ..To Be Overlook! ng
Her Own Aviators
The first Canadian. flying field to
receive a name is located at Ottawa.
It has been named "Lindbergh," and
we are not. surprised to find -such a
serious-minded paper as the Financial Post* registering dignified but
emphatic protest.
No one in this Dominion desires
to detract one iota from the splendid exploit of this fine young airman;
country. But surely this is carrying
"hero-worship" just a little too far.
. Why* not the name of one pf the
British air pioneers, Ball, Robinson,
Alcock, Brown���or coming nearer
home, the name of a Canadian like
Bishop or Barker?
We Canadians do "curious things at
times, and this is one of them.
Is it possible that vve are forgetting so soon the heroism of those
gallant gentlemen who - flew their
rickety old "buses" over the lines in
the earlier days of the^yar���going

own heroes led the way.
Aims To Set Record For Non-
Stop, Long Distance arid
Duration Flight
Captain W. G. R. Hinchcliffe, .the
Liverpool air   "pilot,   has' completed
plans for an attempt to win for Great
Britain  the  world's  air  records  for
non-stop, long distance, and duration.
He intends to fly non-stop from England to   India,    continuing   towards
Rangoon, until His petrol, is exhausted. '   ��� ...     -
"While it! is;true that I shall use
an American machine the records, if
made, will take the nationality of the
pilot, and will be British," said Captain Hinchcliffe. "My only-reason for
buying an American machine is that
tliey are cheaper, and as this is a private venture .one has to study expense.'"
���" "British aeroplanes .and aero-engines are.the-finest in the world," he
continued," as:the super-Marine Napier proved by, winning the Schneider
trophy, but it was a government effort, and as a .private individual I
cannot- afford the cost of a British
machine." '
" Captain Hinchcliffe has bought a
Stinson Detroiter monoplane for his
intended flight. The present record
for a non-stop, long distance flight is
held by the Americans, Chamberlin
and Levine, when they flew from New.
York to Germany, 3,905 miles. The
endurance record of 52 y_ hours without coming down was made by a German aeroplane-flying in circles over
Captain Hinchcliffe's machine carries about , 600. gallons of petrol,
enough for a non-stop flight of from
60 to 70 hours at a speed of-90 to. 95
miles per hour.
��� A message from New "York recalls
Captain Hinchcliffe's . visit to . the
United States last month, and says a
Stinson aeroplane has been shipped
from Ne|w ork. Orville Porter, who
sailed- to give the 'plane final adjustments, said that the day a second
man had been found to occupy the
cockpit the machine would start on
the flight.

never say "No" to them. That reminded him of tlie story in which he quoted the difference between a lady and
a diplomat:

means perhaps; but" when he says
'perhaps,' means no;- ancl when he
says 'no,' he is no diplomat. On the

for their ultimate object the unearthing of the Palace of Augustus. A wall

high has "already' come to light, and

adorned the residence of the Caesars
will later be discovered. The Palace
of Augustus    actually- consisted   ot

remains. The buildings were adorned
by more than 100 columns of alabaster and rare marbles, the porticoes

Report for February
Hon. William Sloan, Minister of
Mines of British Columbia, died at St.
Joseph's Hospital, Victoria, at 12:55 on
Friday, March 2nd, following.a stroke
which he suffered when attending a
theatre the previous evening, and from
which he failed to recover conscious-
- Tlie news of Mr. Sloan's death came
as a shock to his many friends in
Greenwood and district, he having become well known here in the 1925 by-
election, in which he led the government forces to victory, when Mr. D.
McPherson was elected to the Legislature, o
In a tribute to the popular political
figure The Daily Colonist/Victoria, says:
The sudden death of Mr. William
Sloan, Minister of Mines in the Provincial Cabinet, is a loss not only to the
Liberal Party but to the administrative
life of British Columbia, and, indeed,
to the province in many senses. Mr.
Sloan was well liked by everyone who
knew him. He was regarded as a
public man who knew the wider interpretations qf public responsibility. He
���brought human qualities to bear on
his position in the Cabinet as Minister
of Mines, as Commissioner of Fisheries,
and during the years he was Provincial
Secretary. He had the faculty, not always possessed by Ministers, of recognizing merit in those'who served under
him, and where he saw such he was
never slow in giving responsibility and
seeking counsel with his subordinates.
The result was that he secured to the
service of the Government those* who
are giving the province excellent service, and that there are such officials,
especially in the Department of Mines,
is a tribute to the executive capacity
which the late Mr. Sloan possessed.
Mr. Sloan came to British Columbia
from Ontario and after making a fortune in the Yukon goldfields settled
down "in Nanaimo. In 1900 he first
turned his attention to politics. After
'unsuccessfully cqntesting a Vancouver
seat in the 1900 Federal election he was
returned for, Comox-Alberni in 1904.
His ability and common sense attracted
. the attention of Sir Wilfrid Laurier .at
Ottawa, and he soon built up a close
. friendship with the great Liberal chief-
tan./The , latter always depended on
Mr. Sloan's loyalty to the party and
the Government. It was at Sir Wilfrid's request after the election of 1908,
when .Mr. William Templeman found
himself- without a seat, that Mr. Sloan
resigned in���- Comox-Alberni, a seat
which in that election he had won by
acclamation. The nomination was
offered to and accepted by Mr. Temple-
man.-Mr. Sloan was out of politics for
several years, but never lost his interest
in them. The provincial election of
1916 found him in the field as a candidate, and a successful one. With the
Liberal triumph of that year he was
immediately chosen by the late Mr. H.
C. Brewster as Minister of Mines in
tlje first Liberal Government formed in
British Columbia. This choice was en
dorsed by the late Mr. John Oliver
when the latter was called upon to
form a Government on the death of
Mr. Brewster, and Mr. Sloan remained
in possession of that Cabinet position
up to the time of his death. During
the last year his health has been poor
arid attendances at_the Legislature and
at his office intermittent He was,"
however, believed' to have regained
.much of his vigor during the last few
months. .The end came with a suddenness that was unexpected.
There are certain matters connected
with British Columbia politics - with
which the name of the late Mr. Sloan
will always be associated. He was one
of the first advocates in this province
of the old age pension scheme,' and it
was due to his .advocacy that British
Columbia was/the .first, province to
participate in the Federal measure of
last year. He will also be remembered
for the system of safety devices which
he had installed in the mines of the
province, as well as, generaly speaking,
for the mining policies which he promoted during the past eleven years. It
is a tribute both to those policies and
to the personality of the late Minister
that his department should have been
the least criticised of all Government
departments under the present Liberal
administration. Both inside the Legislature, and throughout the province
as well, he was recognized as a
competent administrator who had the
real interests of the industry of mining
at heart. As Provincial Secretary his
work was no less efficient, and health
matters and the administration of
-hospitals in British Columbia have
gained much during the period he was
in office. ;
Mr.. Sloan was a; keen politican. He
was a power to be reckoned with in
elections because he had the faculty of
keeping .his ear to. the ground and
sensing public opinion. He was, withal
a good sportsman politically, and win
��� or lose he was equal to either fortune
Because of this sportsmanship he earned- the close, regard o'f his political
opponents, and indeed he was the most
popular Minister through the years
that the Liberal Government has possessed. His cheery personality will be
missed in the Legislature. It will be
'missed, too, in Nanaimo, the constituency which he had made his own by
��� his bonhommie and likeable characteristics.   It will be missed in other senses
-.by the wide circle of friends he had
. built up throughout the province and
the Dominion. In his passing the
Government has sustainedD an undoubted loss to its administrative per-
' sonnel, for, viewed from any angle, Mr
Sloan was an asset of high value to
the Liberal Party. A good politican in
the best sense of that term has gone
to his rest leaving behind him a record
which can be pointed to with pride.
To the general stream of sympathy
which wiU flow out to his widow and
sons in the poignant loss they have
sustained The Colonist adds its tribute
of deep regret.

' With a general election in sight
within the near future, it is not the
intention of Premier MacLean to call
a by-election in Nanaimo to fill the
seat of the late Hon. William Sloan,
minister of mines and commissioner of
fisheries, Hon. Mr. Sloan was one of
the outstanding departmental heads in
all Canada. He followed a rigid plan
of superintending the work of his two
departments, leaving the detail work
largely in the hands of trained executives. The latter will be.able to carry
the work without difficulty until after
the general election, when Premier
MacLean will have to form a new cabinet and fill the several seats which are
vacant. Meanwhile, one of the other
ministers will act as minister of mines.
Determined to do everything possible
to stimulate the coal industry in British Columbia, the legislature has passed
unanimously the resolution introduced
by Charles Woodward, Liberal member
for Vancouver, calling upon the
Dominion Government to provide a
railway subsidy on the hauling of coal
from one province to another.
Mr. Woodward showed that British
Columbia coal could be laid down in
the markets of Manitoba and Ontario
at a profit, in competition with United
States coal, provided the movement
was assisted sufficiently to get it under
way. Conservative and Liberal members alike supported the ��� resolution,
which if adopted and acted upon by
the Ottawa authorities, should aid
materially in increasing the output of
British Columbia coal.
