Peterson, Lofstad, Taylor, Forshaw ancl
Business consisted chiefly of financial
arrangements with the Trustee and
bondholders. Progress in connection
with all civic departments.was considered satisfactory although, presenta-
, tion of estimates at the next meeting
is likely to change this situation. II
was decided to accept the offer of the
services of a power trouble expert dur-
- ing the present month from the West
Kootenay Power Co.
The Mayor named the following
standing Committees: .
Finance.���Aid. Taylor, Morrison and
Streets.���Aid. Lofstad, Peterson and
Fire and Water.���Aid. Forshaw, Taylor and Morrison.
Lighting.���Aid. Peterson, Forshaw and

for $G0.00 from the hockey club was
made. Figures presented by the City
Clerk showed an amount of $221.00 had
been paid out by thc City in connection

Monthly Report for January
(Penticton Herald*
Osoyoos curlers have returned from
the Boundary country, where they "took

by Geo. Walters. They followed ur*

feel, however, that had they had their
'own rocks they might easily have made
*���*���& better showing, as a constant changing of rocks of varying speed and
weight means a considerable handicap.
' At both towns the curlers report
being treated to" the usual hospitality
for which the Boundary towns are
justly famous.
For the first time in the history of
motoring the road over Anarchist
Mountain has remained open throughout January. The curlers who motored
from Grand Forks report the roads very
fair all the way. ��� There should be
reasonable prospect of them continuing
passable during the balance of the win-
��� ter. Logging outfits on the mountair
have been a considerable factor in
keeping the roads fit for the motorist.
Mr. R. Nicholson, of Calgary, has
been visiting for a few days with Mr.
R. H. Plaskett, with' whom he neighbored for many years in Alberta during
the good old days of free range ranching. Mr. Nicholson accompanied the
curlers to Greenwood, substituting for
G. Fraser, who refrained from participating in the roarin' game because
of a lame throat.
B. E. Taylor has returned from a
two week's visit to the Okanagan.

Thc fruit industry'of the British Columbia Interior is in a -serious plight
due to unsatisfactory markets and prohibitive shipping rates, Dr. C. M. Kingston, Conservative,' of Grand Forks-
Greenwood, warned the Legislature in
Victoria'on Wednesday, ��� January 30th,
as he urged thc government to relieve
the irrigationists of his own riding and
give attention lo fruit growers' problems generally.
.The Interior, Dr. Kingston said, is
not envious of thc growth of the large
Coast cities i'or it saw in them potentially valuable markets for its own products. At present, however, his own
riding was experiencing serious difficulties so far as agriculture was concerned, because it was bounded.on the
south by a prohibitive United States
tariff and on the cast and west by pro-
hibive freight rates.
Dr. Kingston told iri some detail
thc struggles of the fruit growers of his
"The irrigationists of .this area," he
said, "expect. relief from tho government, because unless it.comes rapidly
they cannot hold on any-longer. They
ave holding on. now by their teeth.
Unless the relief, granted is radical and
drastic, the government is going to
to have every acre of Unit No. 2 in the
district back on" ils hands in the near
future. The government," he ..said,
"should take action to relieve the situation now before the, settlers are
forced to vacate."
It is far better, he said, to assist those
already on the land than to bring in
Besides relic? in irrigation costs, the
fruit growers 'needed relief from burdensome freight rates on iheir shipments, he said.
If the fruit industry is to be saved
from ruin; freight rates must receive
very .serious, consideration.    __ _ _\ ._
"The. railways' surely don't' wish to
kill the goose that lays the golden eggs,
but that is what is being clone now,
and the fruit industry is being charged
more than it can stand."
Dr. Kingston .said there was much
doubt 'in- the minds of the people of the
Interior tliat tho Interior Committee
of Direction is going to be the success
in handling thc fruit industry that
has been hoped. Hc believed that the
solulion_of-_the���fruit���industry's���problems would lie to a -large extent in
some form of closer co-operation between the B. C. producer and the prairie " consumer.
"The government," hc said, "ought
to get busy, ancl soon, because if there
is anything in a dying state in B.C., it's
the fruit industry. It's ttp_to the government to endeavor to save it."

Newest Lifeboat Gear
When the Canadian Pacific liner -Duchess of Bedford anrive-cl in
New York recently to start a senies of cruises to the West Indie*,1, the
crew, under tlie direction of Captain H.'Sibbons and his officers, demonstrated the efficiency of her up-to-date lifeboat gear in a fashion that
amazed the inspectors.
Shown above is the latest thing in lifeboat lowering equipment,
capable of lowering twenty-e.ght boats iu ten minutes; The davits,
which are controlled by one man, slide clown the rails until the boat
is at deck level. It is then lowered by gravity to the water ancl can
be released by trigger, the falls then being hoisted again and attached to another boat which is nested on the same davit.
United States officials slated that this Welin-Maclachlan gear was
the most efficient evei seen in New York. i'AGE TWO

A revolutionary invention in printing,
in the opinion of its promoters���a
machine which sets type by telegraph���
the plant of the Rochester Times-
Union, on December 6, by the two inventors, Frank E.* Gannett, publisher,
and Walter W. Morey, compositor. Arid
it proved, writes Louis Stark in the
New York Times, that a single typist
might put into automatic and simultaneous operation, in a thousand widely scattered newspaper offices, a thous-
7 and linotype machines which would set
type as ��� perfectly as if, operated: by
..human hands, saving incalculable time
and labor. Nor will, it be necessary to
scrap the Mergenthaler, Intertype, and
other machines already in use; the new
invention may be attached to regular
typesetting machines 7 in an hour. To
quote Mr. Stark's Rochester dispatch
. further: ������'���'." -���������',, -.,/
"Mr. Gannett, in the presence of'a
hundred leading publishers, editors, and
executives of newspapers and news
associations, and a scoi*e of scientists
and business men, threw' the switch
which set in, motion the new device.
There was a hum and a whirr, and the
intricate parts of two typesetting
machines began to move. '7   -
"Keys on the typesetting machines
moved as if prest. by invisible hands.
The little brass molds of letters, the
'mats', dropt into place.. Large levers
moved swiftly and smoothly, and cast
. lines of type slid into the 'stick' ready
for the next process in the making of
a newspaper.  A,      ;'.���    AA--7 7;
'- "Two yaning spaces before the keyboards denoted the absence of human
operators. Their functions.. were supplied by a stream of perforated ticker
tape which was fed into, the typesetting
machines.  '"�����-.*'       7A       ���.*-���*, *.
"The secret of the new device is 7ari
electric typewriter which perforates
ticker tape, each group of perforations
'corresponding to a letter or numeral.
The code on the tape is then flashed
: electrically into a newspaper office,
perhaps a thousand miles away, and a
tape in the latter oflice is similarly perforated. *
���7"The second tape is then put through
a 7 device attached to the Linotype
machine, and electrical impulses trans;
late the code into depressions of the
keys on the typesetting machine, a a- A -
"Not only, can the Teletypesetter-be
used to transmit copy from distances,
but it can be used in newspaper and
publishing plants for local work. : The
tape can.be perforated and sent to the
composing-room and fed Into the type
setting machine. The perforating machine can be operated by any typist.
"It was contended that linotype machines can bejspeeded up by means of
the new device to produce at least three
times the amount of work turned out
by human operators.
"With the Teletypesetter operating
the typesetting machine the lines of
'mats' are automatically cleared and
new ones fall into place a letter at a
time. The lead type is cast, and when
the message is cleared through the distributor, it is found in type ready for
"At each end of the line there is a
machine in front of the operator which
decodes and typewrites the perforations
so that the operator may see a copy of
the message he is sending and the person in charge at the receiving ond may
instantly read it."
Then, too, according to the Times
"One of the possibilities of the Teletypesetter is the enormous saving of
time and labor in handling the syndicated matter mailed by press associations. The news agencies would furnish it on perforated tape, and the tape
would be fed into the typesetting
"Valuable time will be saved in the
sending of market quotations by the
new method. The sending units in
Wall Street will be able, according to
those who arranged the demonstration,
to send quotations to the newspapers of
the country so rapidly that by the time
the last quotations are listed the typist
operating the perforator will be practically even with thc"board.
"The invention is expected to be of
great importance in book printing.
The rolls of perforated tape will be a
permanent record. Book publishers
will not be compelled to keep tons of
metal plates iri their files for the print-,
ing of new editions. Instead, a small
roll of paper tape will preserve each
chapter against the time when tho pub-
"lisher requires a new edition. He will
then run the tape through the Teletypesetter unit and get new type."
A Rochester dispatch to the New
York World says:
"The Teletypesetter in its present
form is a product of three sources. Mr.
Gannett years ago began looking for
some one to help work out his idea,
which he was told would be 'impossible.'
"He met Walter W. Morey, of East
Orange, New Jersey, an inventor who
has worked in nearly all departments
of the printing industry, and, who had
ideas like Mr. Gannett's.
"Morey went to work with Gannett
at the development, and soon afterward forces were joined with the
Morkrum-Kleinschmidt Corporation of
Chicago, makers of automatic telegraph printers, and there the Teletype-
setter was perfected."
Compositors need not become unduly panicky about their jobs,.however,
remarks the Norfolk Virginian-Pilot.
In the first place, "a central typesetting
office can not deliver* by Teletypesetter
metal composition equally usable by all
newspapers."   Also���
"It is, of course, wholly without value
in respect of the advertising and local
matter that account for most of a
newspaper's contents, and which originate locally and must be set locally up by
individual operators. In the restricted
field of general telegraphic matter, the
new invention's usefulness would be
limited by the difficulty of editing and
revising composition to fit the particular newspaper's space conditions,
as compared with the ease of editing
arid revising paper copy. All in all,
individual machine compositors need
not be unduly disturbed."
-It is pointed out on behalf of the
Province of Quebec, says the Victoria
Colonist, that it does not need an old
age pension law because it has. a law
which binds the children to maintain
their parents when they are old. The
inspiration-for this law came from the
Code Napoleon, and, "it is lived up to
as an honored tradition in Quebec."
The Montreal Gazette says: "Quebec's
proiid experience is that where the need
exists, parents are supported within the
family and not as" a matter of charity,
but in loyal and loving fulfilment of a
filial duty." That is one of the principles which makes the home and family life such a stronghold in the stability of Quebec.
Attoiney-Geneial Pooley's movie censorship bill will have its teeth drawn by
the Legislature before many days.have
passed, it is generally believed in the
corridors of the House, says a Victoria
report.;    ,
This bill has raised the ire of the
press of British Columbia and each
member of the British Columbia &
Yukon Press Association has strenuously opposed the passing of the bill, by
urging their representative in the House
to vote against the measure.
The Vancouver Province has taken a
leading part in the opposing of the bill
and says editorially in their issue of
February 1st:
"The news about Premier Tolmie is
that he is nearly rid of his cold, and
that he hopes to be back in the House
on Monday. We are unfeignedly glad
to hear this, and not less for the sake
of the House and its business than for
the sake of Dr. Tolmie himself. The
fact is that thc short absence of the
Hon. First Minister has had remarkable
consequences in the disposition of the
House, and especially in the demeanor
and temperament of his locum tenems
and deputy, our old friend Mr. Attorney-General Pooley.
"We are told that the House is mark
ing time, and praying for the feturn of
the Premier, and we can see for ourselves that some mysterious and dreadful change is taking place in Mr.
Pooley. We are not alarmed, bf course,
wherij-we note how short he is in his
answers to; Mr. 'Pattullo arid Mr. Man-
son, because we remember: how, 'In
other days, they were somewhat short
in their answers to him. But we are
really considerably disturbed to find
that the sometime genial Harry Pooley
,of the late opposition has now become
the infant terrible of tlie fledging Great
and Good Government, and to such an
extent that Mr. Speaker 'Joneshas had
to rule that the mention ��� .of Mussolini
is unparliamentary language " in. this
trembling House,, and that the fledgling
attorney-general is .so short, in. his
answers to everybody that it has" be-.
come a sort of blasphemeous treason to
talk back to him at all.
"We tremble in our Journalistic boots
as we say these awful words, but we
have summoned up a desperate courage
to say them now. For we see -very
clearly that we shall never be able to
say them when Mr. Pooley has passed
his censorship bill. And he is determined to pass it. We have wooed him
with soft words, and we have asked
him to reconsider. We have asked him
to think again. He not only refuses to
I think again, but he seems to resent the
very suggestion that he may ever have
thought at all. He is scournful of out
stupidity; he is going to have none of
0111 nonsense. There has to be a bill���
and we might as well understand it and
be done with it���to encourage the presentation of British moving picture
films in British Columbia; and if we
can't understand that the proper way
to effect that purpose is to establish a
censorship of thc movie advertisements in our wicked newspaper, then
'.Cromwell Napoleon Punch-and-Judy
Pooley has no more patience or time to
waste upon us.
"Really, wc are very much upset to
find that our dear old Playboy Pooley
has suddenly become this Petulant
Pooley, and wo are wondering what we
ever did to him that he should bc so
unkind. He will not listen to us when
we tell him tliat he might just as. well
censor us altogether as to censor us in
our movie-advertisements. He turns a

In few previous years has Canada's
mining, industry shown phenomenal
growth as in 1928, when the value of
the output was officially estimated at
$271,000,000,' marking .a gain of $23,-
644,000, or nearly 10 per cent, over the
total of the preceding year, says an
Ottawa report. Marked increases were
shown in thc production of nickel and
copper, the output of nickel being set at
93,789,000 pounds, compared with' 66,-
711,000 pounds in 1927, and the copper
output at 191,944,000 pounds compared
with 140,147,000, pounds. The increase
in the combined value of the production of these two metals was $15,-
The production of lead and zinc was
also considerably greater, although owing to lower prices the value showed a
decline. ,The production and value of
silver was less than in 1927, while a
moderate increase was shown iri the
production of gold.
Crude petroleum" in greater volume,
the value showing an increase of 35 per
cent. The production-of asbestos was
greater, at 280,096 tons, the value showing a "moderate decline. The output of

Weather Report For Soup
The sea is constantly productive
of tales qf adventure. A recently
tol-d story is that about Commander S. Robinson, O.B.E.", of the
Canadian Pacific liner Empress of
France who turned his ship into the
face of a hurricane and wont 500
miles out of his' course to take aid
to injured seamen on a storm tossed
Japanese freighter. The great liner
waited beside the freighter, which
had becn badly battered by the
huge waves and some members of
whose crew' had been injured, but
found it impossible for boats to
pass between the two ships to convey a doctor. After waiting for
half a day-tho muster of the Japanese ship reported that he'could
make port, and the Empress of'
France continued on her interrupted voyage. - ",
According to the landladies' weather
report  (writes a correspondent), the
weather for soup has arrived.
Monday's soup is fresh and sustaining;
Tuesday's soup has been through some
Wednesday's soup is visibly thinner;
Thursday's soup is hardly a dinner.
