. A meeting of the Provincial Game
Conservation Board was held on Friday evening, August 12th, in the Court
Room,    Casorso   Building,   Kelowna.
Mr. M. B. Jackson, K.C., of Victoria,
chairman, and Dr. P. D. MacSween, of
New   Westminster,   members   of   the
Board were present.   It was attended
by many members of the Kelowna Fish
and Game Protective Association, Mr.-
J. C. Child, representing the Vernon
Fish and Game Protective Association,
Mr. G. S. Walters, of the Greenwood
and District Fish and Game Protective
Association, many local ��� farmers, Inspector of Provincial Police Fernie, of
Kamloops   ahd   Constables   Cor'rigan"
and  Maxson,  of  Kelowna.   Unfortunately,- however, no proper notice had
been given"out of the time when the
meeting would be. held and those who
had come from Penticton and Naramata, ��� after   spending   the   day   in ,
Kelowna, returned home by the-eight
o'clock .ferry,  thinking it would  not '
take place, no information as to the
time when thc members of the Board
would arrive being procurable.
Mr.   F.   AV.   Groves- spoke ' on   the'--
question, of sectoring a game sanctuary   at   Shorts'   Creek,   stating   that,
were such a game reserve established,
its boundaries would have to be very
definitely defined." He was supported
in -his  remarks  by  Mr.  Child;  who
stated that the Vernon game protective organization would lend its support to this game refuge being made.
Mr. J. C. Clarance, on the other hand,
did not approve of the selection of. the
Shorts'  Creek watershed  as 'a' game
reserve, stating that there would- be
opposition to that project by nearby
settlers. ... -
' Mr. Groves and others theh sug- .
gested that the 'boundaries of the
former Kettle River reserve be altered
and it be re-established so, as to" take
in only portions of country wliich were
not settled up, a recommendation to '
support.   '   .
Mr!' Groves  next- brought-up   the
matter of the recent lengthening of
the open season for deer to three and
a half months, a sore subject with all
southern   protective   associations.   He
asked if it were true that this had been
done so as to allow those!big game
hunters who. went to .secure moose in
Northern B.C. a chance, to shoot a deer
as well.   In reply, Mr. Jackson stated
that he agreed with Mr. Groves' that
tho   open  season   for  deer   was   too
lengthy, that he was unaware that it-* .>...
had - been   extended', for   the   reason   -  7
alleged by -Mr.  Groves,, but that;' if '.-"
Major .'Allan,-'.Brooks., had'~stafed�� that .���; -.   -.
such was the case, it could, be counted
on as ��� a fact
Mr. Clarance spoke on the question
of open season for does occasionally,
using   the  same   arguments  he ' had
often  advanced  at various meetings "
arid remarking,. inter alia, '���' that deer
herds-were being 'detoriated through,
the' protection of one sex only.   This    ' \.
theory did not find acceptance and Mr.
Jackson gave it as his opinion that all
who had studied the habits of deer
were in favor of the buck law.   The
majority of delegates supported Mr.
- Mr. Price and the Greenwood repre-
tios- sent, in *h*r ><���� '���-
The Cure

III   . ??��� A've been doin' a lot of telepho-
aJ ��� nin tae America lately "
tios sent in by up-country game protective organizations were ignored, it
being  evident  that  the members of
such associations were familiar with
local conditions, and Mr."Jackson ex-'
plained that under the present system
such, recommendations were forwarded
to the. Provincial Fish and Game Protective Association to be sorted out and
that    organization    forwarded    such
recommendations  as seemed best to
the   Board.   If  the  recommendations,
of some Game Protective Associations
were not carried out, it was because
those  sent ^-by  their  neighbors  were
different, often quite the oppqsite.Dr.
MacSween   then   suggested   that   the
various organizations get more closely
together, so as to send joint recommendations. He had joined ^he Board,
ho explained/ thinking it was "a one
man   affair,"   but   had   changed', his
mind on  that subject.   He  and Mr.
Jackson both thought that the game
associations  did  not realize  all  the
work the Board did in the cause of
game protection.
Considerable time was taken'-up'on
the question of compensation for
damage done by pheasants and Hungarian partridges but Mr Jackson
could hold put no hope of a compensation fund ever being established.
Various other matters were then dis-'
cussed, though the meeting had already-lasted a long time and the hour
was late, among them being the placing of bounties on crows and magpies
earlier in the season, the necessity of
ridding the country of cougar and the
open season for grouse.   In connection
with cougar, Mr. Groves was informed  .
by Mr. Jackson that the services of the
noted   cougar   hunter,   Shuttleworth,
could  be requisitioned by the game
associations in the Greenwood, Grand *-
Forks, Kelowna and Vernon districts
and that he was not supposed to confine his work entirely to'the Similkameen. district.   It was also brought out
that large numbers of cougar had been
killed last winter and spring* by:trappers and hunters in*, the Gretenwood
and. Grand Forks district.
The Greenwood- delegate having
stated that there was opposition in the
Greenwood district- to the^closing of
willow grouse, as. the birds <"were plentiful in that "section, Mr. Jackson expres- ���
sed his pleasure and astonishment at
such being the case and stated that
the requests of the Greenwood and
District Fish and Game Protective
Association to have an open season
for willow grouse this fall would be
taken into consideration.
- The question as to whether it would
o_: would not be. better policy to increase the licence fee paid by big game

Canada To The Fo
Canada 1s certainly being kept weU before tho people of tlie British rales
this year and to a greater or less extent is callinlg for the attention of the
people of tho United States. The publicity the Dominion is receiving is of
the best and most effective typo and can hardly fail to be productive of
results highly beneficial to the country.
The elaborate and -wonderfully successful celebrations In .connection
with the Diamond Jubilee of Confederation fo/cussod the attention of the'
Empire, and large sections of the United States, upon the Dominion aiid led
to a study of.its past history and the really marvellous development of.the
country during the past sixty years. Canada today is bettor known aud
���appreciated not only by the peoplo of Canada, but by the world. The story of
Its development and its future possibilities'has been told far awl 'wide and
In such a way as to command, tiie earnest attention .and consideration of
people of power and influence.       . ' ��
Following, the Jubilee celebration!), "the visit of II.R.II. the Prince of
Wales, Prince George, and: Premier Baldwin has again kept Canada
prominently before the ��� people. of Great Britain. The tour of these distinguished visitors Jias been followed witli the keenest interest by the ..British,
press, aud it is well within the bounds of probability that a Vvery great
stimulus will thus he -given lo British immigration to Cariada.
The ceremonies attendant upon the dedication of 'the Memorial Chamber*
ln the Peace Tower at Ottawa by the Prince-of-Wales'in their, simple but
impressive dignity could not fail to impress tlie British people. So, too, the
unveiling of the statue of Sir Wilfrid Laurier who so nobly carried on the
work of tho Fathers of Confederation and who* was ahvays a comfauding and
popular figure- in the eyes of Great Britain. Finally, the official inauguration
" or._lho"Peace Bridge at Niagara attended.by the heir to the British crown, the
Premier of Great Britain, the Premier of Canada, the Vice-President of. the
United States, the Governor of New York, the Lieut-Governor of Ontario, and
other high oflicials, provided a friendly meeting ground of the whole English-
speaking family ;ind provided an object lesson for all 'the nations of tho
Tho present year has witnessed tlie placing of a Canadian Minister at
Washington and an American Minister at Ottawa; it has revealed the ox-
panding trade ot Canada with the world; prosperity and decreased "taxation
at-home; substantial reductions in the National debt; growth and development in all directions. Men of prominence in the life of Great Britain have
visited Canada in increasing numbers, ami at the present time proprietors of
nearly one hundred influential British newspapers are"touring tho Dominion
from coast to coast, seeing for. themselves the prevailing prosperity and
sizing up thc untold possibilities of the future. 7   ^
IL is no idle boast to say that tho Twentieth Century is'Canada's century.:
But,for the interruption of the Groat War and Uie ensuing depression, and
reconstruction rendered necessary to jiiako good war's. destruction Canada
would no'w bo much farther along the road to tho goal set for it when;the
century opened. IL may well be, however, that tlio very conditions created
in iho Old World as a result o�� tho war will.have such far-reaching results
in thc movement of population thai, in the long run,"Canada.will from iho
standpoint of setilcnu.nr. and-.economic development-more. than..make up for
thc lost war years.
Certain il, is,.the war made Canada knoyu-to the world as nothing else'
could, have done. Through war Canada found its own soul, realized its oyai
capacity for achievement,"developed its productive and financial .'.'strength,
proved ils ability to solve "difficult-, problems/.and -handle.'great enterprises.'
Now, in its Jubilee year, tho Dominion is feeling the impulse of a reawakened
Nalional spirit, and is enjoying the fruits or an era of marked expansion in
all lines of national endeavor.
The effect is everywhere .noticeable throughout, tho Dominion and the
Canadian people arc fortunate in that the facts of Canada's growth,-development, and potential wealth are being .investigated'by the Old World ���as never
"Pedal Propelling" Boat
Refused To Function
Craft Is Useless and Trip Across
Atlantic  Has Been  Abandoned
Confessing that the idea of "pedal
propelling" across the Atlantic is a
failure;- Edward Tierney and Dick
Ilayniiin, of Lancashire, aro understood' to havo ������'definitely- abandoned
the plan to' make' such a crossing and
to be ready to' sell their strange craft.
Tiernoy tested the boat, called thc
"Carrie," in the harbor and was dismayed to find she refused lo function.
After repeated attempts lie said:
"The craft is useless. She bus a bad
list and leaks badly. The pedal propelling idea is a failure."
"Carrie" Is a 12-foot stool boat
built liko a submarine. She has a
beam of three feet and draws two
foot of water. Sho was designed to
obtain po-Tver mainly through tho
force of tho wind against a small
windmill which drives a screw propeller. In calm weather the-navigators''work to'-use muscle power to
drive the propeller by means or foot
or hand pedals. When ihe plans wero

Ili.s interest i�� time of all classes
drew for him universal affection, and
lio scorned lo delight in his friendship with his employee's.

man, his- estate at his ddath was estimated at ?20,000.
"He was a financial casualty of the

K. L. Gaylor, Jr.. of Cliftondale.
Mass., a member of the senior clas3
at Wesleyan, has broken the world's
record for breath-holding by establishing a time of 14 minutes 2 seconds.
The -previous mark was mado at
(lie University of California, in 191G.
when 10 minutes 20 seconds was recorded.
-> Gaylor accomplished his feat by
breathing excessively a short timo.
before holding his breath, to rid his
blood of much' of the carbon dioxide.
To prepare himself further ho con-
cludedi the process with three breaths
of oxygen, the last of whicli he held
for the record time.
Prof. TO. L. Schneider of Wesleyan

over the entire period gave convincing evidence, that at no timc whilo

Province Mourns
Loss of Premier Oliver
The Province of British Columbia
was deeply stirred when the news of
Premier John Oliver's death became
known on Thursday last. Although
the Premier's illness was acknowledged
hy imminent physicians to bc a fatal
malady yet to those who saw him but
a few months ago, apparently in good
health, it seems quite increditable
that "Honest John" will neither be
seen nor heard anymore.
His political record is one which may
well serve , as an example to coming
leaders. - He was an indefatigable
worker, a wise leader, a keen judge of
men and all through very proud'of
being a Fanner-Premier. He never
omitted an opportunity of instilling
pride in agriculture in others. He
firmly believed that a contented agricultural community meant prosperity.
He was Premier to the end, consulting his colleagues, even in the case of
today's by-election in New Westminster, i, He enjoyed the full confidence
of the people of British Columbia.
Joseph M. Schenck presents
hunters who are non-residents of the
province was argued out at some
length, and, in reply to those who
favored that idea, Mr Jackson pointed
out the economic value to B.C. of the
big game hunting .parties, who, spent
large sums of money in fitting out
their expeditions. Should the licence
fee be largely* increased, this would
have the effect of driving them away
to other hunting fields. His ideas
were endorsed by Mr. Spurrier.
Mr. Groves complimented thc game
administration on the improvement
made in the trapping regulations,
which, however, he considered could
bo much improved by the reduction of
the number of licences issued in each'
district. He suggested that when certain lines had been entirely depleted of
fur animals they should be closed for
a definite period. He also favored the
idea of wardens establishing food
caches in the hills in the fall so that
tliey could properly cover their districts in winter time.        <
A suggestion from the Greenwood
delegate "that Provincial constables on
whom the extra work developed in
connection with the new trapping
regulations, receive some remuneration in addition to their regular salaries .was supported by the meeting but
did not meet with the approval of the
Board members. -    ,
Matters relating to the earlier opening of the blue grouse season, trapping
of beaver and establishment of permanent game wardens were only
briefly discussed owing to the lateness
of the hour.
The New Ford Model
Detroit.���The new' Ford automobile
is now an accomplished fact, with
engineering problems affecting its
design, epuiqment and manufacture
fully solved," according to Edsel B.
Ford, president of the. Ford Motor
Company. He stated that the new car
will formally be introduced within the
next few weeks.
Mr. Ford said that the building and
testing of the first new cars was costing million of dollars, but that such a
procedure' was- necessary to offer a
proven and tested car. An average
speed of 50 miles aii hour is obtainable
in the new models, according to Mr.
Ford. He cited a recent test during
which one was driven 110 miles in two
hours 'and added that a speed of 65
- miles an hour had been obtained.
New York.-7-Concerns building machinery for the'Ford plant for manufacture of the' new model have been
told by representatives of the company
that the new car-will have a high-
compression engine which will operate
on ethyl gas and give 30 miles to the
gallon. The car will have gear shift,
four-wheel brakes, wire wheels and
radiator similar to that of the Lincoln.
Because of the length of tinie required to construct new machinery,
the plant will be able to get into full
production until;*about'the-first,of the
year. ���_."-.   ��� .*.

"Another matter we have in mind is
utilisation; of. by-products arising from
exploitation of our natural resources.
The Ottawa administration has recently taken steps to encourage the activities of the National Bureau of Research along this line, and we hope to
work in conjunction with that body.
"In general we shall carry on along
the lines of the late government. Naturally we - shalMiaye proposals to announce as time goes on and as we
evolve our policies,"
"The policy of reduction taxation
may be mentioned. This has been steadily continued always having regard to

Away back in the* late sixties thousands
of acres of British Columbia's timber were
sold for one cent per acre, which looked
like a fair price-then. To-day similar
timber is worth from $150 to $200 an acre,
so tremendously has timber appreciated in
value within the scope of an average lifetime.
What the young growth of today will be
worth sixty years from now is beyond computation if it is protected from fire and
allowed to reach maturity.
