���The City Council met in regular session on Monday evening Mayor Gulley
presiding and in attendance were Aldermen Morrison, Peterson, Smith,
Lofstad and Forshaw.
Considerable correspondence was dealt
with and instructions 'given. The
lighting committee in reply to criticism from the finance chairman concerning the continued increase in the
monthly power consumption explained
that the loss of power had not yet
been accounted for. The Mayor appointed a committee to be headed by himself to consult with Mr. A. Legault and
city clerk .was asked to arrange for the
interview.    -
A serious break in the Twin creek
8 inch iron main was reported to be
under good temporary repair and a recommendation that provision be- made
for* 8 lengths of new. pipe in the estimates next year. Pinal -papers and
documents ��� were received from the
Battleford Realty Company and found
to be in order, the Mayor and City
Clerk being" authorized by the Trustee
- and Council to complete the transfer of
the real estate.to the city.
,   The streets committee recommended
" building a fence in front of Lot" 7 on
Copper1 St.' The work was ordered to
be done.
The City Clerk was instructed to re-
-mind the Provincial Department of
Public Works that the city lots asked
for by that Department to-form a cutoff from Louisa to Government streets
were still available and it is highly desirous that this improvement be made
in view of still another automobile ac-
. cident happening on this dangerous
corner last Sunday.

in Winter to accomodate cars waiting

Rt. Hon. W. L. Mackenzie King gave
out  the  following   announcement  in
Ottawa on Friday last: i>
"In accordance with arrangements
for the observance of Armistice EJay
sanctioned by His Majesty the King,
the people of Canada are invited to
mark the occasion by a two-minute
silence at. 11 o'clock on Sunday,
November 11. It is suggested that
wherever possible.,.'church services
should begin at such hours as may
be convenient in order to insure that
there should.be a pause in the service
at 11 a.m. for the observance of the
period of silence."        ���..y;.-,..: ...
same time one of the hardest working
and admittedly competent ministers is
Hon. F. P. Burden, who holds the heavy portfolio of Lands, Forests and Wa-
terpowers. He has been too strenusously
occupied to do much talking,- but his
works are eloquent for him. Under his
diplomatic guidance, complex problems
that had threatened to precipitate grim
battle for a Public Utilities Commission
at the meeting of parliament, seemingly have been solved satisfactorily
with cencessions by thc West Kootenay
Light and Power Co. that will permit
control of rates being brought beyond
controversy within the jurisdiction of
the Water Board.
Hon, Mr. Burden also has been active in seeking solutions, with his confrere of Agriculture, of the Sumas and
Okanagan jigsaw puzzles; and his investigations of the status and prospects
of Kootenay lowlands redemption already has resulted in a definite offer
by private interests to undertake the
reclamation of between 50,000 and 60,-
000 fertile acres in the Kootenay Flats
near Creston. This scheme necessarily involves international negotiation
in certain phases, but the indications
are that-it can be satisfactorily carried
The Land's Minister's next big task
will be-to equitably decide between the
Treasury interests and the special arguments of the timber industry whether or not increases in royalties shall
automatically become collectable under
existing legislation, or further concessions be made to operators in the timber industry.
Victoria, B.C., November: 3.���It isn't
'more than a fortnight ago that critics
of Conservatism and all its works, led
by the Vancouver "Sun", were demanding action of .Director-General Tolmie.
Now the cry is that he is going too fast!

made against his several reservations
of judgment on matters of import put
up to him. Now .the charge is that he
is too hasty, too precipitate, too headlong in his course. He probably is not
greatly surprised; he has been too long
in politics to dream of pleasing everybody and all at.the same time. '
..There has, at all events, been no slow
motion on the lot at Victoria this past
week. The order has been for "Action",
with at least half the principals in the
foreground and no one monopolizing
the spotlight overlong.
Firstly, the axe has been .falling and
humankind's proneriess to morbidity
has given dismissials or resignations in
high places; attention disproportionate
to other and more important develop-,
ments. a-   ...~.x..'���.'.'..       .XX.. \

associates of the Game Board; while
Assistant Purchasing Agent Major
Hamilton has resigned, allegedly by
As to the Administrator, no complaints are heard, the prevailing comment being that "the' old" government
should have done it long ago"���in
which connection it is a recalled that
when Mr. Maclnnes was Civil Service
Commissioner andA his official head
was demanded by David Whiteside and
other Liberal members, Premier Oliver
agreed that he had earned his then
promised dismissal. He was released
as Civil Service Commissioner, and
forthwith installed in an office more
remunerative than the Premiership!
The Department of * Insurance is
being merged for economies with the
Registry of Companies, explanation of
Mr. Dougherty's conje. The Game
Board, conspicuously political, vanishes
as a foregone conclusion in game policy
reconsruction on pre-election outlines
of Pooley in this connection.    .
Mr. Stewart admittedly was active in
partizanship, although a public servant, so can voice no complaints.,  '
As for Major Hamilton, strong pressure is being exerted to save his official
scalp, - a leading Conservative member,
Major H. Despard Twigg, leading the
rescue squad, A whichv has at last
achieved a definite promise of government re. consideration.
Trie proportion of changes in official
personnel is, however,' but in ratio of
one to three as compared with the first
three months' period after the Liberals

And it is stressed as curiously significant that Deputy Ministers and Private Secretaries, individual selections
of the Department '���' heads, occupying
posts of peculiarly confidential character, are virtually unchanged since the
dawn of the Tolmie regime, although
these particular officers more than any
others as a rule share the fate���as the
fortunes of their respective chiefs.
Could more positive testimony be had
of Hon. Dr. Tolmie's sincerity in assuring government employees that there
would be ..no decapitations save for
cause? A- .a-
The most self-effacing and at the
In his joint capacity as Minister of
Mines and of Labor, Hon. W. A.
McKenzie continues to justify expectations. No longer can it be charged
that these departments, or either of
them, do not- function. With respect
to mining, promotions of any questionable bona fides, he acts on the instant of voiced suspicion; and in the
case of one mine already, misrepresentations " have been officially exposed
before high-pressure could make inroad on the cash of possible investors;
Whether the course taken by the Department of Agriculture in seeking to
secure the lifting of New Zealand's embargo on.the importation of breeding
foxes is sound policy or the reverse is
debatable, but the governmental action
at least meets the wishes of breeders
here who look toward this sister Dominion for a quick-profit market. If British Columbia is to develop a fur-farming industry second to none���and
for this fodd and climatic conditions,

for the larger business in fur of the

The Lord Nelson at Halifax
���fitizens of Halifax take very justifiable pride in
^ the fact that in bringing to fruition their dream
of a new modern hotel, they have created1 a beautiful
hostelry which, while still.-i.too new to have many
valued associations, has an atmosphere redolent of
those days of grace in which their city had its beginnings. The Lord Nelson, but recently opened,
has a charm not usually associated with a modern
institution of its'kind and a decided nautical touch.
The grill, for instance, is named the "Ward. Room,"
and as one- sees the sailor suited waitresses moving
about the tables one half expects to hear the "Ship
Ahoy." or "Light on.the staib'd bow, sir.'' Lanterns
help -to foster the ship-board illusion, and, one of
these lanthoms, pictured above, has very close associations with the sea. When Lord Nelson lay dying
in the cockpit of H.M.S. Victory, while" the great
old ship heaved in the rollers off Cape Trafalgar
on October 21, 1805, this lamp illuminated the scene
as the doctors strove to save a life the loes of -which
was one of England's greatest.
A bust of Nelson, an original from the Royal
Naval Institute at Greenwich, and an exceptionally
fine piece of work, stands in a corner of the lounge,
facing a model of bis flagship.   In the main dining-
room, too, a very fine oil shows the admiral on deck
and hie men running up a signal of victory.
The Lord Nelson is", however,, a little more than
an art centre. It is a. very modern "hotel of 200
rooms facing, the Halifax'Public Gardens. Its. public
and convention rooms are exceptionally, well planned -
and appointed. The design is Georgian, simple and
beautiful. While it has been;built as the result of a '
community effort, the Lord Nelson is operated by the
hotel department of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
which company has considerable interest in it. It
will, therefore, compare very favorably in service
and all essentials with the great Chateaus and other
hotels of th�� company.       . -. .- ,���--* THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 1928

A 700-pound sea cow was shot
the other day on the shore of Sea
Cow Pound, Prince Edward Island
an inlet which once swarmed with
these gregarious, aquatic mammals
���but which are now a rarity. The
animal was bought by a Summer-^

used .the hide for leather, the flesh
for fox meat and the fat for lubricating oil.
A wool pool in Alberta is now
a possibility. Premier Brownlee
met a number of representatives of
the industry in this province the
other day and the subject was
opened up in a preliminary jvay.
It will likely' come before the ex-
���ecutive council for further considerations in the future, the Government being interested in all
co-operative efforts by way of advising and  encouraging.
The Department ��� of Public
Y-Zorks, at Ottawa, will shortly invite tenders for the first part of thc

The Lord Nelson Hotel, containing 200 rooms and decorated in the
Georgian style, has just been
opened in Halifax, Nova Scotia,
facing the city's beautiful Botanical Gardens. The opening ceremonies were marked by a dinner
given by the Board of Trade to

Railway. Up' to date in every par-
licular.'and .quietly and tastefully
decorated in the period of design

An interseting and remarkable
feat in railroad engineering is now
b$ing effected on the main line of
the Canadian Pacific Railway near
Toronto. Span by span the old
steel-bridge.built in 1888 is being
dismantled and replaced by heavier
girders resting on new concrete
piers without causing any inter,
ruption in traffic. During a six
hour interval in the train schedule
during the' daytime tracks and
ties are ripped up, an old span
removed, and a new section weighing 45 tons is swung into place
by a great crve especially constructed for thepurpose. The short
gap left between the new and the
old spans is temporarily filled by
soeoial girders, new ties and track
are laid by gangs bf workmen, and
the bridge is open to trains again.
Preparations are then made to
tackle the next of the   thirteen
ipans.     -_

Lord Nelson at Halifax Opened
Above, thc Lord Nelson viewed as from the Botanical Gardens. / Inset is a very charming
corner of thc lounge, showing the bust of Lord Nelson In ihc corner.   Mr. E. W. Beatty
was the guest of honor on thc formal opening.
E, W. Beatty, chairman and- president of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, in speaking as guest of
honor at the banquet -which marked the official
opening of the Lord Nelson Hotel at Halifax,
referred to the tourist attractions of Nova Scotia
as being second to none on the continent. This
from as "well travelled a man as the head of the
V^prld's Greatest Travel System'.was a decided appreciation. "In addition to the, opportunities'for
sport which are unsurpassed and attract tourists
from both the United States and Canada, you have
the historic associations such as typified by the
Evangeline -legend which the Canadian 'Pacific and
Dominion Atlantic Companies, have successfully
preserved and featured. It seems to us only right
that the railway which came into existence as a
fulfilment of one of the terms of Confederation
should encourage such travel to your cities and
other historic ._*laces,!!-he,said "That-traveHias
grown apace during the last few years and it was
because of this fact among others that at the solicitation of your ibusiness men *we joined with them
in the building of this hotel. It is for the same
reason that -we are 'building a modern hotel with
other tourist facilities at Digby."
- The Lord Nelson Hotel, while operated under the
direction of the Canadian Pacific Railway is the
result of a sincere effort on the part of the people
of Halifax who have long been working for a modern
hostelry which would adequately take care of the
business which offered in the city. It is situated
in the heart of the city and fronting on the Botanical
Gardens that have helped to make this old city
"Within and without, the appearance of the hotel
^reflects great credit on its architects and builders.
In building and in decoration it is Georgian in
character, and throughout the hotel and particularly
in the public rooms, a most successful effort has
been -made to express the period recalled by the
historic name associated with it. Immediately
inside the front doors is a handsome and spacious
lobby, which at once gives the keynote of Georgian
decoration.   The hotel offices are here a3 also are
other public* services such as elevator lobby, telephone room, cigar shop, et&.
The mezzanine floor and ladies -waiting Toom
leads up from this, and on one side of the lobby is
a snort flight of steps leading up to the assembly
lounge. In this room and in the adjacent assembly
hall the attempt to recapture the atmosphere of
two hundred', years ago has been particularly successful. The chief feature is the fine fireplace over
which is an excellent copy in oils of the full length
portrait of Lord Nelson which was painted shortly
before his death. In one corner stands a fine copy
of the well known bust of this hero, and on the
center table is a splendid model of his ship "Tha
The end of this room opens into the assembly
hall which is- large enough to seat about 250 people
comfortably.  At one end is an ample stage_with_the_
usual~dressing rooms and disappearing footlights.
Leading from the other side of the lobby up a
short flight of marble steps is a foyer, and beyond
that the main dining room. On the floor beneath
the lobby are a series of (fine shops opening on the
street, and here also is the spacious grill, which in
keeping with the nautical flavour notable elsewhere
in the building, is termed "The Ward Room".
Its woodwork is of oak and its ceiling crossed by
hewn beams. It is -lit by ships lanterns of brass
and by candelabra designed from binnacle light3
and ships steering -wheels. The furniture also is
of stout oak. Other features' of this floor are a
barber shop, beauty shop and the usual public
The bedroom floors include a number of fine
suites of which" the Royal Suite ia an outstanding
example. Like -the other its character of decoration **is in keeping with the Test of the hotel. It
consists of sitting room, dining room and two bedrooms, and its furnishings include some fine examples of early Georgian. The bathrooms and general
plumbing and heating arrangements throughout
are up to the most modern standard as also are all
tho facilities for public service.
