Rod & Gun Club Members
Have Happy Gathering
Fifty* members and guests of the
Greenwood and District Rod and Gun
Club assembled in the main dining
room of the Pacific Hotel where host
and hostess, Mr. and Mrs.' J. H. Goodeve, with their capable staff-had laid
out a sumptuous banquet, The tables
were tastefully decorated with fine late
garden blooms and standing put in
bold relief were bowls .of "assorted
Okanagan fruits. With President G.>
S. Walters supported .by Major R.
Gray, D.x McPherson, M.L.A.,, Mayor
Gulley and C. F. R. Pincott at the head
of the table and Vice-President Gordon
McMynn occupying the seat of honor
at the other end, the diners were soon
doing justice to the succession of good
things provided. It is rarely that,
venison and grouse are cooked to the
satisfaction of all concerned but on
this occasion Mr. Goodeve's ruling
officer at the range satisfied everybody.
After the banquet the party adjourned
to the Greenwood Theatre where Mr.
Geo. Gray had arranged the front part
of the hall in a manner suitable for a
free 'and easy social time. Interesting
speeches were delivered by D. McPherson, Major Gray and John Zurfluh
all dealing with the aims and objects *
of game clubs and the member for the
riding laid particular stress on the
importance of the younger generation
joining such organizations from which
they could profit by the timely advice
and views of older sportsmen who are
familiar, with the ever-changing conditions of' game and fish life occurring -
as -time goes on altering physicial and
social conditions under which the call
of sport is responded to.
Premier MacLean phoned his regrets
at not being able to fulfil his promise
of being present but felt he had to
carry out a prior engagement at
Rossland which had been previously
cancelled when he accepted the Club's'
invitation and .which''meeting hie felt
compelled - to hold in ��� Rossland- at the
'urgent request of citizens there after
the ban on public meetings -had been ,
lifted.""'   '' ���-���----���     -;-.---v    v
While no actual club business was
transacted the members took the opportunity of recording a vote of thanks
to Constable W. B, Stewart who is also
tlie game warden of the district for his
efficient work and co-operation with
the efforts of the.club. Many musical
items were rendered and the outstand-
ing_performer_was_Mr.^Chas.^King.
whose finished style "of entertaining
still holds him favorite. Suitable
acknowledgement was made to the
members making gifts of game for the
banquet.
Chairman Walters kept the ball rolling until midnight when with regrets
the meeting broke up as points so far
east as Grand Forks and west as
Myncaster had to be travelled by
various members and guests.
The members and guests were:
Geo. S. Walters, Rupert Gray, D.
McPherson, T. M. Gulley, Chas. F. R.
Pincott, H. Whiting Robt. Brown, Jr.,
G. W. A. Smith, G. B. Taylor, F. H.

"The Royal York"���EmpireVLargest Hotel
Architects' drawing of thc New Hotel
T'he first architects' drawings re-
I leased by the Canadian^ Pacific
Railway Cpmpanyin connection with
the construction of their proposed new
hotel at Toronto^ reveal jv structure
which through a series of varying
roof levels, will rise to a height oi
28 stories above the street level.
Containing over 1000 rooms it will
be the largest and finest hotel
building in the British' Empire,
taking its place in the front rank with
the world's best.' f
"The Royal York", as the nev.
!:otel will be.known, is a name chosen
>
ior it by President E. W. Beatty,
believing it to be most fitting in that
it associates the new structure with
the history of Toronto and conforms
with the dignity and importance of
the building and its splendid appointments. Tha earliest > history of
Toronto is encompassed in the word
"York". About the year 1791 the
new province of Upper Canada was
duly constituted, and its capital was
started in its career as "a very
English town" by that sturdy Briton.
John Graves Simcoe. He bestowed
upon it the name of York, establishing
there as close a copy of British
political institutions as he could
contrive.
.The location of the new hotel is
notable in that it is directly across
from the new Toronto Union Station,
one of the largest railway teririinals in
America, and which will be opened
shortly. The building will extend 350
feet along the north side of Front
street, which is unusually wide at this,
point and which will result in the
hotel being set off to splendid advantage. It will extend on the west to' -
York Street and to Piper street on the
north. On the east is an open space.
A wide airy and well-lit subway will
extend under Front street into the
new Union Station.
Some idea of the facilities of this
new hotel can be gained by the fact
that on the two floors above the
lobby and first mezannine, it.will be
possible to accommodate conventions
of_s_ix_jmd_seven^thousand-peopta���
One of these floors will be one of the
most notable in America. Around a
central foyer will be arranged a ballroom, convention hall and banquet
room. These halls will be of unusual
height and size, being overlooked by
balconies opening out on another
mezannine floor. *
The roof garden at the top of the
tower will be far in advance of anything that has yet been attempted
in Canada along that line. On three
sides it will be glass covered, thus
affording an uninterrupted view
across the lake and the city. Here
meals will be served. Above it will
be another mezannine floor containing
additional facilities for serving and
entertainment.
Detail plans for finishing and decoration have not yet been completed,
but considerable personal attention
to such is being given by Mr. Beatty
and the Company's directors. The-
result will be a building that, besides
being ari ornament to the city of
Toronto in every respect worthy of
that city's importance and assured
growth, will be the largest hotel
structure in the Empire. In construction and furnishing the new hotel will,
as far as possible, be all-Canadian. ?

plundered  on  the  roaring  Spanish
Main.
Thus the place is invested with the
magic spell of a Treasure Island, and,
to this day, the islanders believe that
within its bounds is to be found a
rich hoard of doubloons, moidores,
pieces of eight or louis d'or. Whether
this be true or not, Lambert, when
found by the English, was engaged in
the peaceful occupation of preparing
the skins and oil of seals, with which
the shores abounded.    These were i
exchanged for provisions with any
passing ships; and the trade appears
to have been so lucrative, that Lambert was encouraged to issue a proclamation, inviting all the world to
trade with the island. Of it Lambert
declared^ himself the sovereign lord,
"grounding" as he is claimed to have
said,  "my right and_ claim^on_ th_e_
rational-and-sure"grourid of absolute
occupancy."
Tlio continuous occupation of Tristan da Cunha began, however, in
1817 when, onthe withdrawal of the
garrison, William Glass, of Kelso,
a corporal in the Royal Artillery, was,
at his own request left on the island
with his wife and two soldiers who
had been induced to join them. The
real discoverer of the island was a
Portuguese navigator whose name
the island bears. This was in the year
1506.

time to time by shipwrecked mariners

been their traditional fate. The story
goes that he came to Tristan in order

Physically the island is entirely of
volcanic formation. High cliffs circle
the>lonely spot and are pierced with
ravines, the walls rising like ramparts
from the sea, to a height in many
places of over 1000 feet high.   They
are topped by a central cone that-

The social life of the community is
limited and the monotonous existence
of the inhabitants has resulted in
some of the colony drifting off beyond

Rex v Sercu
A fatal accident happened on Saturday evening, Sept. 24th, at about
6:45 o'clock, when Alex Borisoff was
instantly, killed when a truck he was
driving" went over the bank at tbe
Clark ranch one mile cast of Midway.
Nick OgololT who was travelling with
his partner came out of the wreck
receiving a bad shaking up. Barisoff
jumped and received fatal injuries
when the car turned over on him. It
is believed that the glare i'rom a car
coming down the hill temporarily
blinded the driver.
Barisoff leaves to mourn his loss his
mother and father, three sisters and
one brother living in the Doukhobor
Colony at Grand Porks, where the funeral was held.
Coroner Dr. A. Francis presided at
an inquest held in Greenwood Court
House on Monday and the following
verdict was brought in:
"We the undersigned jurors find that
the deceased Alex Borisoff came to his
death on the 24th' of Sept. at about
6:45 p.m. about 1 mile this side of
Midway by his truck going over the
bank and crushing him and we believe
it was accidental." Foreman W, B.
Fleming, F. J. White, Victor Barrett,
G. H. Gray, T.' R. Williams,, John
Meyer.
Before dismissing the jurors the
Coroner thanked them for their work
also commending T. A. Clark and Robt.
Brown, Jr., for their timely help at
the scene of the accident,
J. A. McCallum, Stipendiary Magistrate, gave his decision in the Rex y
Sercu case on Friday- afternoon in the
Greenwood Court House and his
reasons for Dismissal are as follows:
"The accused is charged with allowing Bulls to run at large near Phoenix,
contrary to Section 3 of 'Animals Act.'
Under said Act it is unlawful to allow
Bulls at large unless they are * of a
good beef type over 1 year and in an
area proclaimed by Order-in-Council.
The evidence shows that there were
some running at large���the defence
have sworn that they were of' good
beef type and over one year old, while
the prosecution -have admitted that
they might be considered of good beef
type. ' ;"
From a perusal ; of the various
Orders-in- Councils, produced, and the
Map, it is found that the animals were
running without both Grand Forks
and Greenwood Bull Districts.
Although ignorance of the law is no
excuse for any offence, it is otherwise
with regard to ignorance or mistake in
point of fact. The evidence of Mr.
Browne the Assistant Grazing Commissioner showed that although he had
a map on which was outlined the
Grand Forks Bull District, yet he was
unable to state whether or notv the
particular area mentioned was within
said District. He also has given it as
his opinion that the accused and
others who were present with him last
June at a meeting at which these
matters were discussed,[.,as a result of
that discussion, may have left the
meeting und_er,J;he...*impresslo^Q���tha_t__i_t_
was lawful to allow their Bulls to run
at large in this District. Under these
circumstances I cannot find the
existence of evil intent on the .part of
the accused, I therefore Dismiss the
information.
A warning was given that in future
it would not be possible to plead
ignorance of the fact of the boundaries
of the District."
