On Tuesday evening, May 15th, the
leaders and members of the C.G.I.T.
Group in Greenwood held a Mothers
and    Daughters' . Banquet    in    the
Masonic "Hall.   After the C. G. I. T.
Welcome and  Grace the guests sat
down to a most enjoyable supper.  The
tables were most tastefully decorated
with apple-blossoms, tulips and pansies.
, -With the serving of the punch toasts
and- speeches were the order of the
evening.   Miss Vera Kempston, toast-
mistress of the  evening toasted the
King which was followed by the entire
gathering  singing the National  Anthem, after which theC. G. I. T. sang
one of their own choruses.   Miss Renie
Skilton next sang, in.her usual charming manner a very beautiful Solo.
The President, Miss C. Hallstrom offered a toast to "Our Mothers". This
being, possibly, the chief and most important toast of the evening was very
well prepared and excellently delivered.
Mrs. Wm. Walmsley, in a very able
manner responded to Miss Hallstrom's
toast;   The Club then sang "Mother O
Mine" and the Misses Rosie Bombini,
Vera   Walmsley,   Rosie  Lucente- and
Margaret Ritchie brought forth great
laughter with their song entitled "Ani
mal Fair".   Mrs., A. J. Morrison pro
posed' a   toast   to   "Our .Daughter"
which   was   very   well . received   and
was   responded   to   by   Miss   Renie
Skilton in a most interesting manner.
Two songs by the Club followed which
were greatly enjoyed by all and.. Miss
Vera Kempston kept her audience in
fits of-laughter with her recitation of
"The Bride" which piece is given word
for word elsewhere in this paper.  Mrs.
H. T. Newmarch toasted the C. G. I. T.
and in a few well spoken words complimented them on their-splendid work to
which Mrs. W. -T. Beattie 'of Grand
Forks, Secretary of the C. G..I. T. for
the W. M. S. of the kootenay Presbyterial, responded to with a detailed
account of the work done and the.aim"
of the C. G. I. T. as a whole and of the
widespread - interest it is causing in
other lands.  After the singing of another, chorus by. the club a novel idea
was   introduced   called   the   Pictures
which were profile drawings of some of
the members of the C. G. I. T. .with
very-clever_yerses^attacfied and from
which the audience were asked to guess
who the girls were.  Guessing was keen
and'Mrs. Wm. Walmsley,went, so to
speak to the head of the class guessing
nearly all of them ahead of-the rest.
Miss R. Bombini's toast was' to the
"Girls of other Lands" and as this
took many, in thoughts at least, far, far
away to other lands, Mrs. Walker's
response dealing chiefly, with girls of
India, China1 and Japan and their less
fortunate fates to the girls of this happy
land was very interesting as well as
instructive.  After another chorus sung
by. the club the Misses Vera Walmsley,
M. Ritchie, L. Blaine'and Rosie Lucente each piaying their parts exceedingly well dramatized the song "Clementine".   Miss C. Toney toasted "Our
Guests" in a very suitable manner to
which Miss R. Axam responded and
expressed her pleasure in being present
at such an enjoyable occasion thereby
voicing the feeling of the other guests
present.  Two more songs brought the
evening to a close but not before Miss
Vera Kempston, on behalf of the 0. G.
I." T. presented Mrs. A. Walker with a
large box of chocolates as a token of
the high esteem in which Mrs. Walker
is held by the members of the club.
Rev. A. Walker and Mr. N. E. Morrison very efficiently waited on the
tables and thereby received high praise
from the club.
During the week, R. L. Clothier,
Manager of Beaver Silver Mines, at
Beaverdell, spent a day in Greenwood
on business.
While in the Camp, Mr. Clothier accompanied by James Skilton, paid a
visit" to the D. A. Mine, owned by the
J. R. Mines, Limited, and in response
to a query, expressed himself as highly
pleased with the results which have
been obtained' from an ably executed
scheme of development which has been
carried out, on that property.
Mining at - Beaverdell, said Mr.
Clothier, is in a quite prosperous condition, evidenced by, the fact that at
the various mines on Wallace Mountain, high grade ore is piled up awaiting
shipment and the motor trucks are
plying between mines and railway, relieving the congestion of ore which has
accumulated during the break up
season when neither sleighs nor motor
trucks" could be used on the roads.
It v/ould appear from all indications
thai; the busy silver-camp will, in 1928
outdo all previous production records.
At the Beaver Silver Mines an extensive plan of development is. being
put into, effect in order that the Beaver
mine may be put in condition for permanent production.

LIJJERAL  ASSOCIATION  MEETING
J. R. Mooyboer, proprietor of the
Grand Forks Garage and district
Chevrolet agent, was' in town bn Wednesday and sold a1 new model Chev-
, rolet touring to the Floyd Bros., on the
Eholt Road.  Mr. Mooyboer was ac-
" compariied on the trip by his daughter,
Elizabeth.
A well attended meeting of the Liberal Association for Greenwood and District was held in the Greenwood theatre
ori" Monday ' evening, 'Mayor, Gulley,
President, occupying the chair. Eholt,
Boundary Falls, Midway, Kettle Valley
and Rock Creek were all represented by
strong delegations. Owen Wheeler of
Rock Creek,- Secretary of the Association, acted as Secretary of the meeting.
The president explained that the
purpose' of the meeting was the transaction of general business, the consi-
deration-of-arrangements""for ""certain
social functions, discussing the matter
of a nominating convention in the Riding and to give our Member an opportunity to talk over affairs with his supporters.
Mr; D. McPherson, M.L.A., delivered
an interesting address in which he discussed the political situation and the
relative positions of the two great parties, pointing out the .great interest
that is being taken in British Columbia
investments at the present time and
the many existing signs of increasing
prosperity. He gave an outline of the
work he has to do at Victoria during
each session of the House and condemned the folly of going to extremes in
party interest. He had no announcement to make as to the date of the
general election but thought it advisable to be prepared and to have the
machinery ready for the calling of a
nominating convention. He had every
confidence that the party would be
victorious, not only in this Riding but
in the whole province.
Acting on a suggestion of Mr. Mcpherson's, the Association, decided to
call a nominating convention and in-
stucted that the same should be an
"Open" one.
A special committee consisting of W.
C. Wilson, Mrs. Pannell and Owen
Wheeler was appointed to arange for
social parties, the first one which" will
be held at Rock Creek. -
The Sunflower Entertainers scored
a hit before a capacity house in vthe
Farmers' Hall, Midway," on Friday
evening last.,., It was the best attended
of any concert in that town for many a
day. Those in charge spared no effort
in the arrangement to make'the affair
the success it was. The costumes of
the performers were most attractive,
the colors yellow and black harmonizing exceedingly well with the stage
settings, which were very artistically
arranged. ���   ���     ._
Bush's orchestra, assisted by-Mrs. E.
S.* Reynolds and Mrs. B. G. Ommanney,
rendered many well known selections
which were greatly appreciated by all
present. - " ���
The. opening chorus by the 15 Sunflower Entertainers was well received
and pleased the listeners and they had
to respond with encores. "Sidewalk of
NewYork" an action song by the same
entertainers was equally well applauded.
"Juan's Special" in which Juan
Puddy .and Gladys Breretori sarig
"Look At That Baby", received rounds
of applause and even more so when J.
H.' Bush changed places with Miss
Brereton, dressed in a comic outfit.
The violin selections rendered by Mrs.
G. B.- Ommanney and Mrs. E. S.
Reynolds greatly added to. the success
of the evening. These artists had to
resppnd to numerous encores.
A chorus and dance "Down The Lane"
made, a very pretty number, while the
"Dance Duet" in which Miss Mayneen
Bush and Miss May Sharp sang very
sweetly and danced gracefully, proved
one of the best numbers on the programme.
"Ice Cream" with Juan Puddy in the
leading role, in which he served ice
cream to his customers, during the
singing of, "More Ice, Cream'-'. This
item was' a favourite* as was the ice
cream served.
The sketch "In A Country Store" was
very amusing and very true to life.
Jack Taylor proved his worth as *he
store keeper and Miss Brereton-as the
clerk knew how to treat the customers.
Emery DeLisle as the "City Guyl''
caused much merriment, as did the checker players, Dick Mellin and Roy_
Sharp:
