HENRY BROWNING RESIGNS
Vancouver.���Secretary of the British Columbia Chamber of Mines since
1922 and the man whom President
Frank E. Woodside and other offlciajs
give the most credit for the success
of the organization, Mr. Henry Browning has resigned. He will enter the
service of_Lenard,_Poisson_&_Waghorn
Ltd. as mining statistician and general
office manager. Mr. H. N. Freeman,
assistant secretary of the chamber, was
appointed acting secretary at a meeting
of the executive-on Friday night. Mr.
Browning's appointment to his new
post presages 'extensive development
by his new employers in general mining investments, following the completion of their new building at the
corner of Pender and Howe streets.
Few men have had a more extensive training in mining then" Mr.
Browning. In earlier years he was engaged in gold mining in Nevada. Later
he was secretary of the Ducktown Sulphur and Iron Company of Tennessee.
Coming to British Columbia, he was
purchasing agent and general assistant
manager of the B. C. Copper Company
of Greenwood. Later he was purcha-,
sing agent and assistant secretary of
the Canadian Collieries Dunsmuir Ltd.

Mr Browning has had business experience in London and South America.
His first enterprise after leaving
London was in the cattle business at
Buenos Aires, from which centre he
shipped cattle to the English market.
As secretary of the British Columbia

of unusual benefit to the province.

WOMEN'S INSTITUTE CONFERENCE
(Continued from last issue)
Creston.���Systematic study of legislation bearing on the interests of
women and children, session by session,
was recommended to the conference by
Mrs. W. O. Rose of Nelson, convenor of
legislation. To assist this object, Mrs.
Rose proposed that Kootenay and
Boundary members of tho house should
be asked to have thc daily "votes and
proceedings" sent to the secretaries of
institutes" in their districts, that the
institutes should procure and keep on
file for reference the School act, acts
affecting municipal government, and
acts m reference to the protection of
women and children, and that ways
should be thought out to make this
general subject of more interest to the
membership.
Suggestions along this line, emanating from institutes through the questionnaire, included a proposal from
Slocan Valley to ask the government
to provide monthly pamphlets or talks
on the laws governing women and
children, for reading at each meeting,
and a proposal from Kaslo for addresses by local members of the house
on recent amendments. Boswell-Sanca
urged maternity benefits on lines in
force in Saskatchewan.
Protection Wives
More questions were asked by delegates, about the right of a family man
to   dispose   of   property   unhindered,
Jthan could be answered off-hand.   Mrs.
doing a good work that was beyond
description for value and importance,
Mrs. McLachlan stated,'but the institution having been provided, its
maintenance was a just claim on the
purse of the rich, and other gifts ought
to go endowment, their inteiest being
available year after year in perpetuity.
The Othea Scott endowment, named
for the unfortunate girl whose case led
to the movement in the first place, if
raised to $10,000 by a $100 gift from
cveiy institute, spread over three years,
would provide two beds m perpetuity
for rural cases.
Othea Scott, Mrs. McLachlan said,
though taken so late that she could
never be straight, would become self-
supporting, and the second beneficiary
of the solarium was already self-
supporting, and was a teacher up north,
Mrs. H. H. Pitts of Nelson meeting
her on a her recent tour of central
British Columbia.
Community Betterment
Community betterment, Mrs. Ronald
Greyson of Bonnmgton-South Slocan
reported, was achieved to some extent
by all institutes reporting, numbering
15. Some of the more- conspicious
items reported were the rest room at
Nelson, hall at Midway, X-ray at Kaslo,
auto camp at Robson, playground and
tennis court at Castlegar, and hali sanitarium undertaken by Bonnington-
South Slocan. Five institutes did work
for the cemeteries, and several -held
clean up campaigns.
Home industries rather languished
during the year, Mrs. W. J. Kidman
of Crawford Bay reported, only two institutes reporting and positive achievement in this line, Crawford Bay main-
tamed making of baskets from pine
needles, and Nelson and Rock Creek
institutes had matured plans for teaching handicrafts. Some suggested formation of consumers' leagues in the
towns, to cieat a market for rural
handicraft products.
Midway Sports
Midway activities, recounted by Mrs
Joseph Richter, included completing
payment ior the hall bought less than
three years ago, and fully equipped,
holding a district school sports clay
with three silver cups up, promoting
junior pig and poultry clubs, giving
a Christmas tree, and taking up im-
pio*vement of the cemetery load.
Mrs. H. H Pitts of Nelson was elected
president of the Kootenay and Boundary Women's Institutes for the ensuing
year; Mrs. R. W. Chalmers of Thrums,
vice-piesident; Mrs. R. Stevens of
Creston, secretary-treasmer, and'Mrs
S. F. McFarlane of Cranbrook and Mrs
A. H. W. Crossley of Nelson, complete
tho board.
It was unanimously decided to hold
the next conference in Nelson.
���!
MAYNARD KNOWS
R. W. Chalmers of Thrums cleared up
one point by the statement that while
a man could sell without his wife's
consent, property that was in his
name, he was still obliged to provide
her with a home. Mrs. G. A. Hunter
of Nelson pointed out that not very
long ago a man had the legal right to
dispose of his children. The present
law, Mrs. S. F. McFarlane of Cranbrook stated, gave the mother and
father equal rights in the children.
Child Welfare
To a question as to why the government sent doctors to prescribe dental work when parents could not or
would not have it done, Mrs. T. S.
McLachlan, superintendent of institutes,
stated that making a recommendation
was as far as the professional man
could go. He could not go to a family and argue with them, as it would
be against the rules of tho profession.
On the other hand, a public health
nurse could enter the home, and appeal
for the work to be done or allowed.
She mentioned where this had been
done in the case of children suffering
from adenoids,    ��
Mrs. L. Keffer stated that the Burton institute, finding that work recommended on tonsils was not being carried out, obtained an agreement with
the doctors to give a special rate, and
gave part of the money which enabled
10 children to have their tonsils removed.
A question as to the legal right of a
man to make a will in favor of a
second wife and cut off his adult
children, though their work might have
contributed towards accumulation of
the property, was not answered. Mrs
J. D. Gordon, in the chair, suggested
that if. he had the right to dispose
of property during lifetime, it was
logical to assume that he could will
it as he wished.
Othea Scott Fund
That women's institutes and other
organizations making gifts towards the
movement for aiding little cripples,
should direct those gifts to the Othea
Scott fund, where they will be added
to endowment and will do work for
all time, rather than to the solarium,
where they will be absorbed into the
general fund and go for running expenses, was advice given by Mrs. V. C.
McLachlan, superintendent of institutes, and Mrs. M. L. Murray of Vancouver. The solarium, instituted by
the institutes, and built with funds
subscribed by them and other organizations and by ..the public fund, was
HIS COW-PUNCHING
That at least one motion picture
cowboy is perfectly able to hold his
own with the actual vacqueros of the
range was demonstrated by Ken Maynard, star of "The Land Beyond the
Law" during the making of the C. R.
Rogers production for First National,
which comes to the Greenwood Theatre
on Saturday, October 20th.

.100 Inspected by Empire Delegates
ll
The inspection by the delegates of the British Empire Parliamentary Association of the largest passenger
engine in the British Empire, the new Canadian Pacific 3100 afforded an opportunity for a group photograph
of a number of prominent members at Windsor Station on their way home. From left to right they are;
A. B. Calder, special representative of the Canadian Pacific Railway; Gearold O'Sullivan, T.D.; and Martin
Roddy, T.D., from the Irish Free State; Jozua Francois Tom Naude, M.L.A., South Africa; Hon. L. Cripps,
Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of the Colony of Southern Rhodesia; Hon. Ernest George Jansen,
M.L.A., Speaker of the House of Assembly, South Africa; Senator William George Thompson, V.D.; Australia; Sir Samuel Chapman, M.P., Great Britain; Geo. Hamhledon, Ottawa; C. "W. Masterson, Montreal;^
and Major Guy Kindersley, M.P., Great Britain.

Maynard and a score of the Hollywood cowpunchers who appear in the
film were taking location scenes on the
Miller and Lux ranch in California and
between working days mingled with
the hands regularly employed on the
ranch and worked like veterans.
Maynard as well as many of the boys
who appeared in the picture have had
actual range experience iri addition to
being go.od actors. Hence by keeping
them in the foreground they were able
to execute the spectacular feats shown
in "The Land Beyond the Law" when
50,000 head of cattle were utilized in a
stampede. A hundred or more of the
hands were also used.
Maynard himself aided in the roundup. This was no small task, as the cattle were scattered over thousands of
acres in small groups. * Work started
before dawn each day until the stampede had been "shot."

A training school for the encouragement of    home   industries    is
'being talked of in Winnipeg, following the Folksong Festival held
!n that city recently under the auspices, of the Canadian Pacific Railway.    Montreal, It may be noted,
has had for, some years classes to
teach their native   handicrafts   to
children of   foreign-born   settlers,
who would otherwise be likely not
, to acquire the skill they would havo
developed in -their own country.
W. N. Beach, a hunter and photographer of wild life who had the
unique distinction of finding two
different pairs of locked antlers
during his career, was a recent
visitor to the General Tourist Department of the C. P. R. at Mont-.
real. Locked antlers are'very rarely found and one of the two pairs
"discovered by him are so firmly
interlocked that they cannot be
pulled apart by two strong men,
and to be separated would have to
he cut?
"In all my experience I have not
- previously found so general a feeling of complete confidence in this
country and its possibilities as was
observed in the cities and districts
where we made stops and had an
opportunity of talking things over
with their representative citizens"
was the statement made by E. W.
'Beatty; president of the Canadian
Pacific Railway, who has just.re-
��� turned to Montreal from an eight
thousand mile tour over the company's western lines, accompanied
by a party of directors ,��ad Mont-
- rfial finrtiders.

AFTER all, there's no place like .British Columbia in
which to work and live and play! Here, there are
no long "off seasons" to* cut down a man's working
time. Our temperate climate keeps a man fit.. ��� enables
him to produce more... earn more.
���The���producers'-avefage~~weekly wage in
British Columbia is $28.39 ... 49% higher than
the rest of Canada. In 1926 seventeen ind ustries
increased weekly wages by $12.95! Actually in
ten years onr annual pas-roll has grown from
78 million dollars to 175 million dollars . . . the
greatest advance by far of any Province during
that period. This, of course, does not include
agricultural workers, professionals, clerks and
others. British Columbia's gross payroll is
estimated at 210 million dollars!
Life is more enjoyable ... we have more time
to enjoy the year-round pleasures and recreations at our doors, while our general standard
of living is very much higher.
���
Taxation during the last four years has been
reduced by two and a half million dollars . . .
concrete proof of. our province's sound
financial condition.
Construction, that outward evidence of the
faith we have in our province, has played a
large part in the:wage situation. In ten years
British Columbia's construction activity has
gone up ten times. In 1916 it involved only
$2,800,000... for 10 months in 1927 it amounted
to $27,277,000!
This activity has an immediate effect on
current conditions. Cash funds are disbursed
for materials, employment is good . . . wages
fairly steady , . . money in circulation.
It increases the capital investment in our.
Province. And there can be no surer indication
of future progress than when producing
machinery increases ... a sign of growing
markets ... a sign that British Columbia
products are winning a place in the markets of
the world.

on September 13. The roof
landed on the telephone wires,
cutting the long-distance line
'between "Vancouver and Kamloops, and severing service
between those points.

the trouble by taking electrical measurements, repairmen were soon on the scene
