Hon. Dr. S. F. Tolmie said, when
news of the signal victory was given
to him in Victoria: "This has been a
glorious victory for the Conservative
Party, and will have its effect throughout the whole of Canada. It is a clear
approval of. the Conservative manifesto
and its well-defined promise for greater
development and attendant prosperity
of the Province along business lines for
the benefit of the people of this glorious
"It had long been evident that this
Province would no longer endure
the extravagant Administration and
steadily increasing public debt -without
a corresponding prosperity.
"Every effort will be made, I assure
you, to: place conditions in Victoria -on
a sound, stable basis.
"I wish to express my deep appreciation of-the people of Victoria and
the electorate throughout the Province,
for the confidence that it has placed in
me and in the party which I represent.
"In a special manner, I wish to thank
the people'of Saanich for the victory
that was mine, feeling, as I do, that I
had little or no part in it myself.
Obliged to leave my own riding in order
to tour the Province, I was obliged to
trust to the good services of my loyal
supporters .to carry on the campaign
for me without assistance from myself.
"I had no misgivings in doing so, as
I knew the calibre of the men and
women that composed the Conservative
Party there, and they have lived up to
the very highest expectations.
"I am placing my services, such as I
am able to render, at the disposal of
the people of this Province irrespective
of their political allegiance. I will
bend every effort to live up lo tlie
highest hopes that have been placed in
me. I hope I may not fail you in yoar
trust reposed in me."

The Conservative Rally and Dance'in
trie Masonic Hall, Greenwood, on Tuesday evening, was ' attended by 200
people coining from all over the riding.
Dr. Kingston, member-elect was present and received hearty congratulations on his success at the polls on
Wednesday last. Dancing was the
chief item on the program and all
present spent a very pleasant evening
at this favorite pastime. Music was
supplied by a Grand Forks orchestra
and they kept the crowd in a very
happy mood. W. B. Fleming'was floor
manager, seeing that everyone had a
good time.   Refreshments were served
The Grand Forks Gazette says:     ; '
'"Although the campaign was keen it
was carried on with good-natured rivalry and'as soon as it became evident
that Dr. Kingston was going to, "he
elected, Mr: McPherson waded��into' the
crowd at the Conservative committee
room and called for three cheers for
Dr. Kingston in which the throng joined.   Mr. McPherson was then called
on for a speech and with his jovial
good   sportsmanship,   he   mounted   a
table.   "My dearly beloved brethern���
while you may not have done me honor
you have this ,day done me a great
favor," he began amid hearty applause,
and   proceeded   to   congratulate   Dr.
Kingston on his election. ' He said the
campaign had been an enjoyable one
as it had been clean throughout and no
hard feelings had been r incurred, and
extended the victor his very best wishes
and assured him of his assistance at
any time.   He did'not wish to assume
too much but thought the government
was ^rather   a   heavy  load   to   pack',
around, and this coupled with the human attitude towards the idea of a
time for a change had not been without
Its effect.   "I will be with you in everything for Grand Forks," he concluded.
Dr. Kingston was then called to the
pla'tfqrm and amid cheers'said that he
found difficulty ' in finding words  to
express his thanks for the honor which
the  electors  had  conferred  on  him
in electing him their representative in
the Legislature.   He felt, however, that
it was not; intended as a compliment to .
himself, but rather as a compliment to
the great Conservative leader, Hon. Dr.
Tolmie and he thought that the people '
could look forward with confidence to
the. new government which would be
formed under Dr. Tolmie in the solv- ���
ing of many problems and righting
conditions... He agreed tliat Mr. t McPherson had had a heavy load to carry
and felt sorry that it was not possible
for both to wm.   He admired Mr. Mcpherson's   sportsmanship.   Dr.   Kingston also took occasion to thank all
those who worked so hard for his election, which he greatly appreciated."

Bernard Shaw, one of the world's
greatest minds, has written a criticism
on. /'Dawn"   for   the   Sunday   Times
which reads as follows:
"The question to be considered; is
whether the film, as a work of art, is
worthy of her; and you may take my
word for it that it is. You have a
most moving and impressive reincarnation of the heroine by our
greatest tragic actress, whose dignity
keeps the whole story on the highest
plane. It has been planned and told
by a young film-poet, who has been
entirely faithful to his great.theme���
that of a woman who, at the risk of
her life, kept a refuge for mercy and
kindness in the midst of the European tornado and terror.      o
"He has not betrayed her by a
single stroke of,bitterness or rancour,
much less: by any triviality of .idle
fiction, both actress and author have
felt, and will make us feel, that the
law that Edith Cavell set above the
military code, and died for, is an infinitely higher law than the law of
war and-the conceit of patriotism,
v  "The film can go to Germany;as an
English film without provoking any
German tp. remind us that people
who live in glass houses should not
throw stones.   It rebukes us all impartially.   I  hope   it  wiil  take  its
���lesson to the ends of the earth."

wonderfully   interpreted   by   that

(Saturday Evening Post)
Perhaps it is wholesome' in this
period of our rapid financial growth to
be reminded that other English-speaking nations possess banking institutions
as large ..as or larger than those of
which we boast. The newspapers are
so filled with accounts of purchases and
amalgamations, and the size of our
major banks'is so fully dwelt upon that
the importance and magnitude of similar concerns in other parts of the
English-speaking world are but scantily
realized. A recent compilation by the
California Bank of Los Angeles of one
hundred and fifty of the largest American, British,' colonial and dominion
banks is striking evidence of the banking power of these countries.
Ninety American.banks have somewhat more than nineteen billion dollars
on deposit, whereas only sixty banks in
the British Commonwealth of Nations
have more than eighteen and a half
billions. The five largest banks are all
located in London. Of the five which
-come next, one is the Royal Bank of
Canada and another is the Federal
Reserve Bank of New York; In other
words, if this semigovernment institution be left out, we have only three in
the first ten.
; Eleventh in rank is the Bank of
Montreal, and twelfth is the Bank of
England.   Twentieth is the Commonwealth  Bank  of Australia,  and two
o,ther Australian banks are found in ���
the   first, eighty.   A   Liverpool   bank-
ranks twenty-sixth and one in Man-;
Chester is thirty-fourth...The colonies:

Jack Mulhail comes to the Greenwood Theatre on Saturday, July 28th,
in an entirely new characterization.
Jack has been the smiling Irish lad
and the tough "egg" in so many pictures that his fans will hardly recognize him when they see him in "The
Poor Nut," his latest First National
In this story of college life, Jack
plays the part of-:a student who suffers
from an "inferiority complex", that
gives him the title of the "poor nut."
Through the Influence of a beautiful
girl and the ability to run on the'einder
path Jack gains his proper eguilibrum
and becomes the idol of the college. -
The play of the same title, from
which this picture was adapted, ran in
New York for a-full year to packed
houses, and the ^ picture Is said to surpass the play-in interest. Charlie Murray in the role .of. an Irish athletic
trainer helps Jack" along in splendid
shape with the comedy, as does Jane
- Winton and Jean Arthur, the two principal feminine players of the cast.

THE material progress of our Province is known the world over.
We speak with pride... and rightly.. .of its vast natural resources
awaiting conversion into.merchandise and wealth. We take the figures
of ten years ago and compare them with those of today.... and.the
world agrees that our progress ;.. considering our population .. ,rhas
been the brightest feature in the recovery of the British Empire from
the war.
And if this progress, of which we are so justly
proud, is to continue, does not the most vital

On us rests the responsibility of shaping their
formative years so that when we hand over the
reins, they may carry on the Torch of Progress,
.How have we met our responsibility? Can we
look Young British Columbia in the eye with
the feeling that all will be well with the future
of the province for which we have planned so
carefully and labored so faithfully?
In the last ten years our school population has
grown from 64,570 to 101,688 . .. 58%. We have
1,065  schools   manned   by 3,396 thoroughly
trained, competent teachers ... an increase of
31.7% and 71% respectively! .  ..   .
Recently we have established special vocational schools for our girls and boys, where
they may be fitted for those occupations for
which they have a natural bent.
Higher education is amply provided for at our
University of British Columbia, where two
thousand students are now enrolled, the
majority studying for their degree in Science
and Agriculture.
And to the school training of our children we
add the powerful influence of Home, the
religious and other organizations, each of
which is contributing its full measure of the
physical, mental and character upbuilding of
our dearest, most treasured asset . . . OUR

It will be interesting to piscatorial
readers of Greenwood to know that the
fry consisting of speckled brook trout,
has been a success. They were introduced to Eoundary Creek three years
ago by C.'-H. Robinson, Fisheries Overseer. .Nelson. The fry seemed to have
travelled all parts of the creek, some
have been caught as large as 8% inches
but the majority caught are smaller.
These fish spawn next year and judging
by the progress they have made in
three years, should furnish quite an
additional attraction to fishermen.

that all fishermen get at least a bite.
