Hopes to Avoid Necessity for New Taxation and 

Points to Economy Measures — Burden Caused 

by Responsibilities in Eastr-Mr. Churchill 

on Army Expenditure 


ta J^PiS? 1 *' ° ct 29 -^ Th « «*»" matter of interest on the first dey 
of the debate in the House of Commons were the speeches of Austen 
Chsmberlsin, Chancellor of the Exchequer, .and Winston Spencer 
Churchill, Secretary for W«r, defending and justifying the expendi- 
ture as inevitable after the war. The Ministers, and Mr. Bonar Law, 
the Government leader, referred in terms of regret to the delay of the 
United States in accepting a mandate for Turkey as adding to aha 
Government's responsibility and difficulties. -~^— • 

Mr. Chamberlain made it quite clear that the Government had 
no intention of resorting to a levy on capital, aa suggested by William 
C. Adamson in behalf of the Labor psrty, but was not disinclined to 
examine into the possibility of a levy on war prof its. 

Some Liberal and Labor members in the course of the debate, 
Pointed to the strange contrast between Mr. Chamberlain's optim- 
istic speech of today and his speech of only a couple of months ago, 
predicting national bankruptcy^and asked what had happened in the 
meantime to produce this startling change. 

^_ Mr Churchill's speech was mainly a long recital of figures justi- 
fying the army expenditure. He explained that owing to the reduc- 
tion in.tne sue of the army occupying Germany, it was expected that 
jnly about £48,000,000. instead of£70,oq0,000, would be^rec^ived 

onhr about £1,000,000 had been received in the shape of currency at 
Cologne for the use of the British troops. He announced a final 
contribution to General Denikine and declared: "We are apwoachfag 
the end of our entanglements in Russia." ™

Mr. Chamberlain said that there 
wua every reason for caution, econ- 
omy aha arise husbandry of resources, 
but none for panic. He hoped that 
the House of Lords would not. con- 
fuse hysteria with strength, and an- 
nounced that tha position of the 
Government waa distinctly better than 
bad base sntielpated in August. 

Taxes and other revenue were com- 
ing In extraordinarily well, said he 
no longer thought that saw- taxation 
would be required next year to bat- 
ant* revenue and expenditures. 

Mr. Chamberlain asserted that mo 
single feature of the world situation 
. had entailed heavier burdens on Great 
Britain than the fact that no treaty 
at peace with Turkey had been signed 
and no settlement in the Bast had 
been reached. For this, however, the 
Government waa la no way respon- 
sible. • ^asssssu

Mr. Chamberlain continued that It 
waa not within the power of the 
British Government to remedy the 
Turkish situation, which was an In- 
ternational affair. Everybody knows 
that a settlement was being delayed, 
pending a decision by tha United 
States whether It would undertake 
her part of the white man's burden 
and tha execution of tha tutelage of 
Turkey under the League of Nations. 

Mr. Chamberlain, referring to the 
economies demanded, said that If the 
staffs of ail departments were placed 
upoh a pre-war rate of pay it would 
effect a saving of only £22,000.000. 
Everyone knew that the reduction 
could not be effected. -\.'a. ." 

Mr. Chamberlain said that a gen-

TORONTO, Oct. 29. — Representa- 
tive veterans, interviewed regarding 
the report of the Soldiers' Re-estab- 
lishment Committee have no word of 
recommendation for the findings of 
that body. Opinions vary from the 
note of cynical derision to that Of 
angry protest, and the underlying 
feeling Is that the Government, by 
adopting the report, will bring a hor- 
nets' nest about Its own ears. 

"The report looks like a case of 
serving up the d essert and entrees 
without Including the roast beef and 
vegetables," was tha view of Vice- 
President Sam Stalford, of the Do- 
minion command of the G.W.V.A. 

"It Is most deplorable that the com- 
mittee should have brought in a re- 
port that left no other course than 
the resignation of the three members 
of the G.w.v.A. advisory committee

to the report of the committee waa 
short, but to the point: 

"The proposition. If correctly stat- 
ed, will faithfully represent the 
anxiety of the potentates In Ottawa to 
alienate the last group , of the public 
that were still bearing patiently with 
their infirmities — the returned sol- 
diers," he said. "Having Irritated 
labor, alienated more than half of the 
financial Interests asjd aroused the 
farmers to political manslaughter, the 
only thing necessary to make the lob 
complete was to drive' the returned 
men Into forming. a political party of

HIS Govenueent St. Phont 1TS1 

Parliament freely and unanimously 
made provision for the payment of 
gratuities to ovary returned man to 
tide him over from throe to six months 
after his return. It to now ascertained 
tha* ths> total coot of those gratuities 
WlB- approximate $158,oee.oe* at S 
par cant. Involving an annual interest 
cnafBO of 16.760.000. 

"-No other nation has treated Its re- 
turned . soldiers so generously In this 

The report deals with moneys ad- 
vanced for land settlement, tho de- 
partment, of soldiers' civil re-estab- 
lish ment and proceeds: 

"Summing up the whole situation, 
your committee are convinced that as 
regards tho 1 problem of re-estobllsh- 
hient generally U»o Canadian people 
and their representatives In Parlia- 
ment, as well as tho Government, have 
always shown an earnest desire to 
meet any real need that has arisen 
or may exist. Parliament, heretofore, 
has not been parsimonious In voting 
money whenever and wherever the 
expenditures wore shown to be neces- 
sary. Frequently, however, tho opin- 
ion was expressed In Parliament that 
tho greatest care should be taken to 
avoid any action that would tend to 
deprive the soldier of his self-reliance 
and self-respect. It was thought te 
be against the interests of the soldiera 
themselves thai they should rely un- 
duly upon Uto state In tho period fol- 
lowing discharge.* Tour committee 
concurs in these views. After hearing 
all tho evidence they agree that the 
best policy toward the soldier is to 
surround him With conditions that will 
tend to strengthen his self-confidence 
and sfjf-rellance. 

Good Work Done 
"As to the general character of the, 
Work as now carried on by the several 
departments of the Government con- 
cerned with the various problems of 
repatriation and . re-establishment, 
>ur committee cannot speak too 
jighly. Tho committee waa struck 
with the nature of the work carried 
on, the ramifications of the same, the 
general efficiency of tho administra- 
tive machinery established, the spirit 
that prevailed- In every branch of the 
service, - and the . general results 
achieved. In stating this the commit- 
tee does not wish It to be understood 
that mistakes have not been made and 
that there Is not room for Improve- 
ment, The Inquiry held is bound to 
load to remedies of defects In admin- 
istration and otherwise. At the same 
time your committee feels called upon 
to report that the evidence has been 
a revelation of the character and ex-. 
tent of the work carried on. This 
particularly applies to the Department 
of Soldiers' Civil Re-Establishment, 
which hoe-undertaken a work that to 
little understood and appreciated by 
Parliament, the people in Canada and 
by many of the soldiers themselves. 
The work of ' the 8oldler Settlement 
Board to equally . commendable. The 
evidence clearly indicates that the 
board, on the- one hand, has a clear 
grasp of its work, and on the other, 
that it has taken every reasonable pre- 
caution to protest the best Interests 
of, the returned men themselves as well 
as the interests of the state. 

, "From the evidence adduced and 
from official statements submitted by 
the several departments concerned, 
yonr committee finds that the total 
expenditure- tor pensions and various 
forms of re-establishment work to

The financial position of Canada- to

pressed that se there to little likelihood 
of the Dominion being able to borrow 
the large sums needed to carry out 
the proposed gratultp scheme, or any 
portion of it, In either Great Britain 
or the United States, it must be raised

"An attempt to borrow several hun- 
dred millions of dollars in addition

raised by the coming Victory Loan 
would demoralise the market for our

both In Canada and abroad and un- 
doubtedly prejudicing, the successful 
flotation of tho Victory Loan Itself. 
Tour committee are clearly of the 
view tha ttho sums of money suggest- 
ed cannot bo raised by borrowing, as 
the financial .resources of tho Do- 
minion are not more than adequate 
to provide the very large commitments 
a l ready made and required -for tho

waa In the form of a letter to C. G. 
Macnell, secretary of the G.W.V.A.,

reciting the proposals submitted by 
the committee. 
The letter continues: 
"To ear regret and disappointment. 
the ereater part of these recommen- 
dations have been Ignored or only 
partly" considered. Had these mat- 
ters been dealt with In a statesman- 
like manner, the present parlia-

action and half -conceived measures— 
would have been prevented. 

"Kven after the parliamentary com-

tions are apparently suoh that we are 
constrained to regard them as unsat-

eight will bo nominated by the mem- 
bers of tho conference, which are 
"of chief Industrial Importance." 

The remaining four will be nomin-

The issue arises ovsr which eight

Chairman Calcter Expresses 
Surprise Over Publication of 
Findings Reached by Com- 
mittee on Re-Establishment 

OTTAWA, Oct. J 9.— In the House 
this afternoon, E. T. Meyers drew the 
attention of the Government to a news 
dispatch to the effect that the Govern- 
ment of Saskatchewan would foreclose 
Saftbe Grand Trunk Pacific If the 
elite of the road to the Province 

He asked If It was possible, in view 
of the fact that the road was now in 
the hands of a receiver to have these 
claims of the. Province arranged for. 

The Minister of Railways replied 
that the Grand Trunk Pacific being In 
the hands of a receiver, could not pay 
the interest on lta loans from the Prov- 
ince Of Saskatchewan. Therefore, the 
Province must meet this Interest It- 
self. £ 

D. D. McKenale told the Govern- 
ment that a summary of the report of 
the committee on aolidera* re-estab- 
lishment had been publiahed. He 
wished to know if the summary Waa 
correct, and If the report had been 
allowed to find Its way Into the press 
before being presented to the House. 

Hon. Mr. Calder replied that he had 
absolutely no information as to how 
the report had been secured. Every 
member of the- committee was very 
much surprised on lta publication. 

It waa possible the tthe Government 
would have to take tone action in the 
matter. The final meeting of the com- 
mittee would not be held until this 
afternoon, and therefore, anything 
that wae publiahed was premature. 
The report would be brought before 
the House this evening or tomorrow. 

Dr. Michael Clark asked humorously 
whether the Minister would quiet the 
reaentment in the country by assuring 
the House that the nefarious news- 
papermen who published the matter 
would be brought before the bar of 
the House. 

The Minister was not sure that this 
was possible.

The proposal to erect a high power

Govern m e n t, the Canadian Marconi

that Federal ownership of wireless

in this Instance for the Marconi Com;

try. It appears, however, there to 
some delay over granting the licence 
and that the plea of the policy of 
public ownership is made. The Board 
of Trade has taken, the; right attitude 
In holding that a policy of public 
ownership ahould not be allowed to 
petard rational development of the 
wireless system, yet we have never 
heard of any proposal coming from the 
Government to establish trans-Paclfto 
connection. If the Marconi Company 
Is prepared ^ tip >P*»|* about^ thla 
development it is certainly not in the 
interests of Canada that obstacles 
should be placed in the way. Canada 
at present has no direct communica- 
tion with either Japan or Australia, 
for the Pacific cable Is almost alto- 
gether used for purposes not connected 
with the Interests of this country. In 
addition, the Pacific Cable Company 
is unable to handle all the business 
which could be eecured and the Mar- 
coni Company would never have 
reached the decision to Institute * 
wireless service unless It waa aaaured 
It would pay. 

It Is practically certain that if the 
licence Is granted. "the high power

Municipal Politics 

Sir,— -Now that our Minister of 
Agriculture has , been safely seated, 
and while yet the spirit of politic* ts 
still in the air. it might not be Out 
of place to get a quiet line dn our 
municipal prospects. 

There is no doubt but a tew 
changes in the personnel of our City 
Council would be to the general bene- 
fit. Indecision, or at least lack of 
accomplishment, has been distinctly 
apparent during the present year tn 
our civic affairs. Several matters' ot 
Importance, that many citizens think 
should have bean brought to a he*u, 
have evidently dwindled into that 
everlasting controversy over unim- 
portant details, which seldom. It ever, 
lead to the solution of any problem. 

The Johnson Street bridge, that pet 
topic of- all candidates at the last 
election, hang* on the trifling Item' ot 
freight-carrying rights. One railway 
company's demand for exclusive prtv- 
lleges in this regard Is opposed by our 
city fathers. Therefore, the chances 
of bridge conHt ruction are little »m- 
ter now than a year ago; but likely a 
tactful and energetic effort would 
clear the situation and this much- 
d improvement ,go on.

Study the stars and the immensity of space, and laugh at the ' 
presumption of man busy with hjs little foot rule. 


Mayor Porter sent a letter yester-

opinion that the preeent attitude, of

Something new In the way of Hal- 
lowe'en socials Is the watchword of 
the Y.M.C.A.. which is planning to 
present a novel type of entertainment 
for the 3lst. Costume processions 
headed by a "Mystery Band" will be 
one Of the features of the event. It 
Is stated, but the upmost secrecy Is 
maintained as to the composition of 
the "Mystery." 

Chambers of Horrors, Caves of the 
Winds, and many thrilling places of 
novel amusement are 1 among the 
prominent features, while the swim- 
ming club has promised to stage a 
really "ghostly" gala in the pool. The 
building is to be sumptuously decor- 
ated with the usual, and many unique 
features Of the Hallowe'en period, 
while the ' accustomed- refresh menu, 
nuts, cookies and such like delectables, 
are said to be In keeping with the 
magnitude of the weird event. 

All young people of the community 
arc cordially Invited. to be present, the 
only stipulation made being that all 
bring a light heart to the merrymak- 
ing. The ladles are further requested 
to bring a white sheet, a mask and 
a pillowslip; while the gentlemen are 
asked to provide themselves with a 
Scat's head" mask. Sideshows will

"The first item of Information this 
month, and a very important one, 
too, is the report of the meeting of 
the Special Committee on the re- 
grading with the Executive Council, 
on Friday, the 24th Inst., the Exec- 
utive requesting the Committee to 
appear In order that they might hear 
the Association's case at first hand. 
Mr. A. B. McNeill, chairman of the 
Committee, outlined the work of the 
Committee, explaining that every 
effort had been made to get full in- 
formation regarding the work of the 
civil servants and to grade the work 
accordingly on the basis of the Civil 
Service Act, putting like work in like 
grades. Irrespective of whether the 
servant was ln one department or 
another. The grading fixed, the next 
step was to fix the salaries within 
the llmfts provided in the Act, tak- 
ing into account length of service, 

Cost ot laving Bonos 
"Mr. Fred Mackensle. Provincial 
President, spoke on the matter of 
the cost of living bonus. Instancing 
•other services where this principle 
had been followed, and emphasis- 
ing the provisions of the Civil Service 
Act, which required a salary based 
on normal times and a cost of living 
bonus in addition. 

"Some members of the cabinet did 
not see w'.iy the bonus should not be 
lumped together with the salary, but 
changed their minds when It was 
explained that bis would upset the 
grading. For Instance. If a man's 
total remuneration was fixed at $110 
and called salary, he would be la 
the 2A class; later on. If living con- 
ditions became easier, and $10 or 
ISO was knocked off as no longer 
necessary, the man would drop Into 
the IB class. The method provided 
In the Act was the only way — fix a 
man's ' salary within the limits of 
his grade on an agreed normal time 
basis, so that he knows his salary 
and can figure accordingly, and then 
add an allowance to meet the pres- 
ent abnormal cost of living. 

"Mr. Mackenzie pointed out that 
the promise ot a 130 bonus made 
by the Hon. Dr. MacLean In July 
last had not been generally carried 
out and referred to the Land Regis- 
try offices, where out of a total of 
seventy-seven names only seventeen 
had received ISO or more over It 14 



General Mewburn Says No 
Definite Air Policy Has Been 
Drawn Up — Appointments 
Still Vacant 

VICTORY BONDS— the Bridge from War to Peace. 



No. 2, Poultry 


Get them here end you'll 

General Mewburn, Minister of 
Militia and Defence, who Is one of 
the seven members of the Canadian 
Air Board, told a representative of 
The Colonist last night that the Cana- 
dian Air Board has as yet formulated 
no definite air policy. He said that 
the country would not stand for any 
enormous expense in aerial develop- 
ment, and the policy of the Board for 
the moment was to go slow and see 
Its way ahead. 

Asked as to the filling of the three 
positions, superintendent ot certifi- 
cates, secretary to the board, and 
medical officer, General Mewburn 
stated that these had not yet been 
filled. The appointment of Colonel 
Robert Leckje to the post of superin- 
tendent of flying operations was the 
only position filled to date. 

Asked as to the matter of the "gift 
machines," General Mewburn stated 
that the question was under consid- 
eration, and that at' the moment 
Camp Borden was the only place 
where any . aerodromes were estab- 
lished, and at Csmp Borden no facili- 
ties could be secured to care for the 
waiting gift. It appears all the me- 
chanics and personnel of the training 
centre of the Air Force ln Canada 
have been demobilised, and even ' it 
the Board got the 11< machines rrom 
the Old Country, it could find no way 
of looking after them. 

As to International questions, such 
ss air ports and customs clearances, 
General Mewburn would not commit 
himself beyond saying that these mat- 
ters were under consideration. No 
definite air policy hag yet been ac- 
complished by the Canadian Air

toriously a strong attack on the part 
of the extremists, who had been boast- 
ing that the bourgeois party would 
be snowed under. 

The final results show that the coun- 
cil, with a total of l«a members, will 
be made up ss fotlesrs: 

Radical Democrats, 81; Cathoilo

who had bought bonds of both pre-

In hand and explained that aa far as 
that particular fsmlly is concerned. 
the Income from the bonds la free of 
taxation. This explanation quite 
satisfied them and they - subscribed 
for a 1500 bond, and later In ' the

With the excitement of the Federal 
by-election a thing of the past and 
the municipal contest only a couple 
of months away, interest is beginning 
to grow in speculation a« to who will 
sit in the City Council or 1820. 

It is practically certain that Mayor 
Robert J. Porter will stand for re- 
election at the January polls. 
Whether he will have opposition Is 
not so clear at the moment, but 
several possible . candidates have been 

Aid. John Harvey is slated among 
the more prominent prospects for the 
mayoralty fight. His activity In the 
Council during the past few months 
has been accepted generally as an In- 
dication that he will 'throw the gaunt- 
let Into the ring when the opportune 
moment arrives. Last night he de- 
j cllned to .make any statement as to 
his intentions, but he denied a rumor 
that has got about the city during 
the past few days to the effect that 
his supporters have already started to 
organize a campaign in his behalf on 
a large scale. 

Two or three other aldermen rank 
among the mayoralty prospects. Aid. 
W. J. Sargent, who has headed the 
finance committee this year, and who 
was mentioned as a dark horse in 
this year's election until nomination 
day, is spoken of in this connection 
again, along with Aid. Albion Johns. 
Aid. Joseph Patrick, who is terminal, 
ing his first year as alderman, Is re- 
garded now as among the dominat- 
ing figures of the Council In spite of 
..his brief term of office, and there 
, are a good many people who would 
i not be* surprised to see him contest 
1 the mayoralty. If Mayor Porter was 
not going to i'ui^ again. Aid. Oeorge 
J gangster would be counted among the 
possibilities, but so long as Mr. Porter 
occupies the chief executive's chair 
Aid. Sangster may be regarded as 
content to sit at the benches below. 
Will Be Opposition 

So far there have been no reports 
concerning the mayoral aspirations of 
persons other than members of the 
Council, but it Is believed in well In- 
formed quarters that, even if the 
various aldermen who are now 
claimed to cherish hopes of one day 
becoming mayor do fail to live up to 
expectations and decide at the last 
minute not to run, there will be oppo- 
sition from some quarter. The per- 
ennial talk of a businessmen's ticket 
is likely to start another lease of life 
shortly, and the returned soldiers' 
organisations are certain to be in the 
field, if not for the mayoralty, for the 
Council anyway. Labor will in all 
probability have one or more stand- 
ard-bearers before the electorate. 

Although there has been some dis- 
cussion to the' effect that ex- Mayor 
Todd might try for a third term, the 
fact that during the past year he has 
been .in retirement from all public 
activities and* has taken no part In the 
work Of the city's various organiza- 
tions gives the impression that he 
will not enter the contest. 

Mr. Pedcn May Run 

Ex. -A Id. Alex Peden has been ap- 
proached by. many of his friends and 
urged -to accept ' nomination for the 
mayor's office, but he Is as yet unde- 
cided, It Is probable, however, that 



he will seek election to some civic 
pest. During his long term a* alder- 
man Mr. Peden Served on all the im- 
portant oommlttees, and it la be- 
lieved that If he attempted a return 
to the Council It would be In the 
capacity of mayor and not as alder- 


Indications point to a big turnout 
in the alder manic field. The returned 
soldiers will probably, present a ticket 
and it is virtually certain that the 
women will be represented. At the 
last election two returned men and 
two women were among the candi- 
dates, but all four > were unsuccessful. 
But their failure then is not expected 
to constitute a discouragement at the 
approaching election. » 

The only man who so far has stated 
In fairly definite terms his intention 
to run as an alderman in January is 
Mr. J. Ivan Seabrook. wno has figured 
in several past municipal contests. 

Wanted: "An industrial Ticket" 

Mr. Seabrook stated yesterday that 
he hoped someone would launch an 
"Industrial ticket" similar to that 
which he attempted to form several 
years ago. The reason Mr. Seabrook 
ascribes to the failure of tn etlcket to 
attain success at the polls was that it 
was opposed by the full weight of the 
Civic Retrenchment Association, then 
a potent factor in city politics. Now 
that the war is over, Mr. Seabrook 
believes that a progressive industrial 
ticket would stand a much better 
chance at the hands of the .electors. 

It is probable that all present mem- 
bers of the Council will allow their 
names to stand for re-election. 

Registration for the civic election 
Is still proceeding slowly. Ninety 
householders and licensees applied at 
the City Clerk's office yesterday, how- 
ever, bringing the total. to 400. Nine 
hundred names were registered dur- 
ing the October period last year. The 
office will remain open for registrants 
today from 7 a.m. to • p.m. Tomor- 
row the office will be closed at 5 p.m., 
and no applications will be considered 
after that time.

High-Power Station May Be 
Built Close to Victoria by the 
Marconi Company or Federal 
Government Shortly 

. _______ 

Erection of a high-powered wtre- 
lesa station — one of the biggest In 

Canada— at a point close to Victoria 
is being contemplated. 

The council of the Beard of Trade, 
tearing of the project, on Tuesday 
passed a resolution, urging upon the 
Federal Government the Importance 
of arranging to compete with the 
service provided by wireless stations 
on the American aide of the Pacific 
Coast. Some time ago the Board was 
advised by the Deputy Minister of the 
Naval Service that the Government 
has adopted a policy of public owner- 
ship of wireless systems in Canada, 
and that, although the cost of operat- 
ing i the existing stations exceeds the 
revenue, the Department was Inves- 
tigating prospective business tn con- 
nection with the contemplated erec- 
tion of two additional stations, one in 
southern British Columbia and an- 
other at Prince Rupert. 

A special report of the trade, com- 
merce and transportation committee 
was submitted to the council of the 
Board of Trade yesterday morning. 
After pointing to the rapidly-Increas- 
ing requirements of shipping and tne 
various wireless projects now on foot 
In the states of Washington and Cali- 
fornia, the committee states; 

"The Dominion Oovernment should 1 
arrange to meet this competition at 
the earliest possible date, as the 
service would furnish the require- 
ments of shipping and also an aw- 
Btitlsh wireless system' communicat- 
ing with all parts of the world." 

It Is understood that the Depart- 
ment of Naval Service has before it 
an application for licence to Install 
a 50 -kilowatt high-power wireless 
station near Victoria, having a mini- 
mum radius of 1,000 nautical miles 
and a wave length of 6.000 metres, 
capable of communicating with the 
trans- Pacific station operated by tne 
American Marconi Company att Bo- ! 
Unas. Cal. The Canadian Marconi 
Company Is making the application. 

The application appears to be held 
up at present by the Government's 
public ownership" poltcy. The Board 
of Trade holds that If. this policy is 
to be maintained It should net be 
allowed to handicap the rational de- 
velopment of the wireless service, and 
that the Government should under- 
take to either let the private concern 
go ahead with Its scheme or else build 
the station Itself.

Beautiful Furniture 
makes a beauti- 
ful home — 

if you are s u c ce s sf ul in h—pinm 
the furniture looking lists "new. 
Tables and chairs must be kept 
free from dost and brightly gleam- 
ing — floors and wainscoting must 
be kept clean and shining, la order 
to preserve the grate-beauty so 
essential to the attractiveness of 
any room. 

The rich clear gloss resulting from 
the O-Cedar treatment is quite 
different to the effect obtainable 
any other way. The O-Cedar 
lustre fears, because O-Cedar 
Polish contains no injurious sub- 
stance* — no grease, acidorgunr— 
when you apply the O-Cedar 
treatment you add to the surface 
of the wood nothing but O-Cedar 
Polish— which "cleans as it pol- 
ishes/* releasing every particle of 
dost and leaving a perfectly dry 
finish that flatting. 

The 25c bottle contains « ounce*— sufS- 
ctart lor a thorough trial— but after yon* 
have ooorioood yourself of the merits 
©7 O-Cedar Polish, you wHl want to 
rjnrohaae it in the lerser-siaed packaf 
whereby you obtain "more for | 
money. The 60s bottle contains 12 
ounces. The ouartsise (imperial meas- 
ure) Is f 1 .25. Yon can obtain a half- 
gsUon can for $2.00 or a gallon can for 
13.00. As O-Cedar neither deteriorates 
, nor evaporates, the wisdom of buying It 
ha the larger packages Is quite apparent.

I Was gloriously happy thoee two 
weeks I epont with Colonel and 
Mother Mays* They petted me at 
every opportunity, which act X was 
not too growa up to appreciate; and 
I was glad that I had 1st Crittenden 
ga bask to Chicago without me. They 
did everything pooslble for me. We 
drove, all three, and I got to know 
that section of lbs blue grass around 
their home, which was very beautiful. 

We foraged, too, aad almost every 
day I brought boms with ma some 
good things to oat that t was to take 
home with mo. Country cured heme, 
pr ossrvos, sorghum the color of am-

Mother Hayea told me Crittenden 
liked. But I said nothing of this in

Colonel Hayes showed ms hie 
horses, often taking me on horseback 
to distant pastures. I fall In love with 
one, a beautiful sorrel, a four-year- 
old, that, he insisted, whs the pride of 
the whole country thereabouts. He 
was gsntls, his coat was like satin, 
his head Wad high SBd proud, and he 
had white feet and stockings. 

Shortly before I was to leave ws 
f Odo oat to ths pasture to look at the 
horses again. Having dismounted, X 
went up to my nickering favorite and 
put my anas around his nock. 

"Good-bye, Pegasus," I whispered, 
though it was not Ms name. 

Colonel Hayes was standing beside 
mo, his hand Oh the horses's withers.

"You may bo sure I shall not sell 
him," said my father-in-law. "I'm 
going to give him away." 

"What!" I exclaimed. "Oh. you 
wouldn't do that!" 

He nodded' vigorously. 

"It would make me very unhappy 
not to «ss Pegasus again," I then 
told hint. 

"But, Bess, my dear. It would make 
ms very happy indeed to give him 
away," said ho. "You 800," he added' 
drawing my arm within his own, "I'm,' 
going to give him — X already have 
given him to you!" • 

"Why, Daddy Hayes!" 

It was the first time I had called. 
Him that. His face beamed as he 
squeezed my hand. 

"80 you wouldn't let me give him to 
you, after all," he replied, lightly, and 
yet with much feeling. "You just 
would pay for him. 'Daddy Hayes,' " 
he said, softly. "Daddy Hayes!' 
Bess, I hops you will always call me 

"I shall If it pleases you, Daddy 
Hayes," I murmured. 

"And now it Is the same as though 
you were my own daughter," he said. 

Of course, I waa deliriously happy, 
to think of Pegasus being mine. Al- 
ready X saw myself mounted on him 
and skimming over ths bridle paths 
m the parks at home, envied by all 
equestrians. And already, woman 
like, my thoughts flew to a show win- 
dow where I had seen some lovely" 
riding costumes. Life seemed very 
good, for I had been favored, indeed*

Gives Resume of Legislation 
Affecting Women' Brought 
Down by Present .Govern- 
ment— Sharp Discussion 

The three daj-s* conference held In 
the Provincial Library by the Wo- 
men's Institutes of Vancouver Island 
was productive' of much in the way of 
Interesting discussion and Informative 
add r esses, last night — the closing ses- 
sion — being Inferior In aO partlcular 
to any of the earlier sessions of the 
gathering. No leas than three speak- 
ers were provided, the Won. John, 
Oliver. Premier of the Province, Mrs. 
Bchotleld, and Mr. Harper, of the 
Dominion Astrophysical Observatory 
atan*, contributing the major part of 
the evening's programme. The last- 
mentloned brought a number of lam- 
tern slides which assisted In making 
the subject matter the mora Interest- 
ing and more anally understood, as- 
tronomy being the theme. ' 

The Premier Speaka . 

In bin address Premier Oliver gave 
an excellent resume of what the pres- 
ent Government had accomplished 
since It came into power, among some 
of the . beneficial * legislation brought 
down, there being mentioned .the 
Banal Guardianship Act, Workmen's 
Compensation, and the "Third Inter- 
est" Act Whereby It became impossible 
for a.' mah to will his entire property 
away from his wife. Reference waa 
also made to the Introduction of legte- 
latlou recognising a minimum wage 
for working women and certain Axed 
hours of labor. This waa a very pro- 
avaaatve step. 
• The Premier spoke about prohibi- 
tion, referring to the no uncertain 
voice In whloh the people of Ontario 
had spoken recently whan the matter 
had been submitted to them for their 
endorsement or disapproval. It was 
evident, ha maintained. Chat the ones' 
tlon would come again to the ballot 
In British Columbia. But he was 
perfectly certain, now that the wo- 
men had the vote, which way the 
decision would go. 

The signUtcance of the North Amer- 
ica Act, the speaker pointed out at 
some length at another point In. his 
a d dr es s , waa not appreciated by many 
people simply because they did not 
know anythmg about the Act. He 
thought that the Government would 
be doing a good thing for the people 
If they had this Act published In some 
easily accessible form so that it could 
: be oistriouted and understood by the 
public at large, as only by its study 
could the uninitiated discover, among 
Other things, the dlffei^nce between 
the Provincial and Federal Govern- 
ment responsibilities. ► 

Addressing himself more particu- 
larly to the Women's Institutes as a 
body the Premier said that ha would 
always be glad to do what he could 
to help them, aa they were deserving 
of all assistance and were doing a very 
great good — particularly' in the rural 

Forward Movement 

Mrs. gchofleld told the. meeting 
something about the Forward Move- 
ment, an inter-church and united na- 
tional campaign whose common ef- 
fort la to take the form of inspiration, 
publicity, and united effort in a finan- 
cial appeal. . The responsibility of ini- 
tiating and directing the united cam- 
paign had been laid upon the United 
National executive .committee, and 
sub-committees bf this national exec- 
utive had been • selected ad follows: 
Spiritual alms, publicity, finance (to 
provide for the expenses of the United 
Campaign), special subscriptions and 
setting-up. Provincial ■ committees 
were being farmed with functions 
similar to those of the National Exec 

Referring to the definite "dating" 
of the campaign Mm Sohofleld said 
that it was proposed that Provincial 
Convention* would be held at Import- 
ant centres throughout the Dominion 
from November 24 to December i, at 
which addresses would be given by 
distinguished religious leaders from 
Britain, the United States and' Canada. 
; 'Many arc hoping that this move- 
ment will arouse the Indifferent arid 
make the nominal Christian* alive to 
their - responsibilities,'* skid the 
speaker. •-•»•• 

Vote of Confidence 
At the session earlier in the .day the 
conference passed a very hearty Vote 
of confidence In their chairman, lira. 
Blnckwood-Wlleman. • At another per- 
iod the meeting adopted a resolution 
Introduced by Mrs. P. McNaughton, 
thanking Dr. War nock, Deputy Min- 
ister of Agriculture, for the cour- 
ageous way In which he had told them 
their faults without minolng matters. 
Dr. Warnock's criticism referred to 
alleged' laxity on the part of the Wo- 
men's Institutes In connection with 
their • procedure at business meetings. 
His remarks did not go unchallenged 
in certain quarters, and there Was 
some lively discussion. Conservation 
of their funds aad avoidance bf waste 
were urged by him, and the chairman 
of the Advisory Board. was reminded 
to send in her accounts at regular in- 
tervals, in order: to contribute to the 
efficient working of the Department, 
"i think It. only fair to me for you 
to state before my Institute that you 
found my accounts strictly correct," 
interposed Mra Blackwood-Wlleman.

A number of recommendations were 
made by Dr. Warnock while he waa 
speaking to the meeting. For one 
thing he suggested that two of the 
directors of the Advisory Board should 
retire automatically either annually 
or every two years, by seniority or 
by drawing lota, and that they be en- 
titled to seek re-election after the) 
lapse of one year. Mrs. Ballantyne, 
Of Gordon Head, was obviously op- 
posed to compulsory change, averring 
that If the member* on the Advisory 
Board' were satisfactory that they 
should be allowed to stay there. Inci-

preaenUtlon to Mr. Arthur Manson 
of an Illuminated address a* a testi- 
monial in recognition of his valuable 
services to ass o c i ati o n football In this

Schedule Opened With 

The annual meeting of tho Victoria 
Senior Amateur Hookey League was 
held last evening at the Y. M. C. A. 
when the officers for the 1»1»- 20 sea- 
son wore elected and the bylaws and 
constitution of - the league were 

Tho following officers wore elected: 
Hon. president. Hon. John Hart; 1st 
hon. vice-president, Mr. W. H. Wllker- 
son; 2nd hon. vice-president, Mr. C. B. 
Jenkins; president, Mr. J. Mowat; vice- 
president, Mr. Percy Richardson; sec- 
Stary-treasurer, Mr. Percy Watson. 
»e executive committee will consist 
of tho managers of the various teams. 

. Considerable time was spent in 
amending the bylaws of the league. 
Last year many problems confronted 
the league which the bylaws did not 
cover. Tho committee which was ap- 
pointed at tho last meeting of the 
league a tew' weeks ago has carefully 
gone over the bylaws and any of these 
possible loopholes have boon closed. 

The meeting discussed the arrange- 
ments for the use of tho rink which 
Mr. Lester Patrick had offered, Mr. 
Percy Watson, Mr. George flponoo and- 
Mr. Darrel Spence were appointed as 
a committee to interview Mr. Patrick 
to see if better arrangements eould 
not bo obtained: 

The following have entered teams: 
■ Se nato r s. Elks, Two Jacks, Kits' Bil- 
liard Parlors. K. of C, and the O. W, 
V. A. The Foundation team will not 
be represented this year owing to most 
of their players having loft the city 
with the olosing of the yards. 

Tho ttieeting discussed the advis- 
ability of having four or five teams in 
the running for the city championship. 
FlU's Billiard Parlors team intimated 
that they would withdraw their appli- 
cation If more than four teams were 
accepted. It was decided that the ex- 
ecutive would meet later and discuss 
this point which la considered a very 
serious one,. as it seemed unfair to 
have to bar teams from, playing. The 
executive will meet some time this 
week to discuss tho problem. 
. Mr. D. Spence, Mr. P. Watson and 
Mr. J. Mowat were appointed dele- 
gates to attend the annual meeting 
of the British Columbia Amateur 
Hockey Association, to bo held in Van- 
couver shortly. 

By the attendance at the meeting 
it looked as if the 1*19-20 season 
would be a banner year for amateur* 
hockey. Several of the teams' have 
their men signed up and as soon as 
trie rink opens, will commence prac-

A. N..S, Jackson Wakes Strong 
\Plea for Greater Interest in 
Producing Athletes Wortfiy 
of Those Who Have Gone 

[vniHiH-iwNiw, . wra unit 

the boot memorial to such 
be to spare no effort t 


The fact that Britain's chances In 
the forthcoming Olympic . games at 
Antwerp can" bo represented W tho 
well-known \ trigonometrical sign, 
"minus infinity," Is giving prominent 
amateurs in the Old Country seri- 
ously to think. Tho latest to make 
an appeal for a changed attntude to- 
ward success In the world-wide event 
is A. N. 8. Jackson, former president 
of the Oxford University Athletio 
Club, Olympic record-holder' in tho 
1,500 metres, and one of the best 
mllers In the game, who, no com- 
mander of a battalion of the King's 
Royal Rifles, won three bars' to his 
D.S.O. in France. Writing In The 
Times, he starts off by bewailing 'the 
loss of so many crack athletes in the 
war, mentioning suoh names as O. R. 
L. Anderson, Kenneth Powell, H. 8. 
O. Ashingtop, H. M. Mackintosh. R. 8. 
Clarke. D.vN. Oapsen and .Ronald 
Poul ton-Palmer, and indicates that 

\u\m would 
to produce 
others worthy to take their piece. 

Failure in the, past, ho goes on to 
say, was entirely the 'result off lack of 
interest, and the black eye given 
"specialism." which expressed Itself 
In tho regrettable Incident at the 
London Olympic games, when that 
crack Scottish . runner, Lieut. Halo- 
well, was deliberately .pocketed, and 
run-across. The bright ray in the 
dark outlook Col. Jackson points to 
Is tho actfon of the Oxford Univer- 
sity Athletic Club, which has followed 
the lead of American universities snd 
engaged for the first time In Its his- 
tory a professona! track coach, no 
other thtsn the redoubtable and world- 
famous Arthur Shrubb. Hhrubb has 
started things going at Queen's, and 
with his experience at Harvard ' to 
lend color to his statement, has al- 
ready given oof-, that «' the material 
available to as good If not bettor In 
some respects than that which ho 
handled on thla side of the pond. Col. 
Jackson finishes with an appeal for 
greater public Interest In Britain's 
supremacy sal 'the field of sport and 
greater financial support to tho en- 
couragement of team production.

The series of 1919 runs the r 
ber of meetings .given *by members of 
the Grand Circuit in forty-six years 
up to 404 at which the premiums 
amounted to $12,805,304.92, Hart- 
ford Is now the senior member and 
Toledo the junior, while Cleveland 
alone remains of the. four which 
Started the organisation in 1173. At 
the start. Its meetings were held over 
the golden oval, at Qlenviiie, but were 
transferred to North Uahdell' In 7909. 
when the present course made its 
bow to the racing world. 

Whfoe the average rate of speed 
waa fester In 1919 thaoh 
there have' been very few - 
performances except among 
some might call thorn old, ho 
Single O.'s heat In 1.59% at Toledo 
was the onfy one recorded below two 
minutes, while Lu Princeton leads 
the trotters with a time record , Of 
2.01 and a mile in 2.02 in a dash 
race. AH of these are a trifle short 
of the returns in 1.918, when Single 
O. and Miss Harris M. placed the 
three-heat race record for pacers be- 
low* the two-minute line, while both 
Maebl Trask and St. ' Frisco won 
heats in 2.0 J %. The .injury sus- 
tained by Ante Guy m her second 
race, no dotibt, kept, the trotter* from 
making a new mark, but all that can 
be said for the pacers is that they 
could not step up to the new stan- 
dard. T* • • . " • 
Of the old trotters. Heir Reaper, 
Karly Dreams. Royal Mack and Mlg- 
nola were the leaders. The first 
named, now a twelve-year-old won 
I In 2.04% at Kalamaaoo. Royal 
Mack, eleven year sold, made his 
third trip through the circuit and 
won In 2.04 H. At the same time he 
aleo^niade a new world's record for 
geldmga which was equalled by 
Wrhtee Loree in the Transylvania. 
Mlgiiola. a 10-year-old. marched like 
a conquering , hero from the opening 
meeting of the Grand Circuit until he 
pulled up lame at Hartford, where 
he was defeated in the Charter Oak 
Purse by Marlondale. He waa started ' 
in 10 races, of which he won nine 
and made a record of 2.04 1-4. No 
one ever saw a better trotter than the 
handsome son of Allerton 

Leaden* Money Winner 
McGregor the Oreat proved the 
leading money winner of 1919. He 
won 12 of hls : 14 races. Marlondale 
defeated him at the Stat Cleveland 
meeting and In the. Massachusetts 
Puree at Boston, but he mare than 
offset those slips by has brilliant race 
at Syracuse, where he won In 2.08 1-4 
and followed it. by. a sweep from that 
point to Atlanta. , , 

Direct C. Burnett leads the pacers 
In the dollar column. He won 11 of 
his 15 races. After his first start at 
Cleveland, where he waa .drawn, ha 
looked to be unbeatable until Grace 
Direct caught him on his second -ap- 
pearance at Lexington. This was.fol- 
lowed by tiro more losing perform- 
ances at Atlanta, where Prank Dewey 
after a run In the field for 11 weeks' 
flashed out in front in 2:04 1-2 while 
In his aeoondr ace ho met to Sa'nardo

Only Those Who Shared In Re- 
ceipts of World's Baseball 
Contests Satisfied With the 


NEW TORK. Oct. 29. — Boaeman 
Bulger says that baseball people 
throughout the country, Including 
the broader minded magnates, writ- 
ers and other Students of the' game. 
afO convinced that there must never 
be another World Series * of nine 
games. For the good of the national 
sport they, are alao convinced that 
the jprlces are entirely too. high; that 
the share of receipts for the players, 
the clubs and the national commis- 
sion are out of all proportion, and 
that in the future the playing of 
baseball's classic event will bo en- 
dangered If the policy of greed is not 

Out o< perhaps 100 persons; whose 
opinions were sought on this sub- 
ject, there were, not more than two 
or three dissenting voices. They 
were of those who had Just profited 
by the annual event. 

" Coata Public Too Much 
In the first place the receipts 
amounted to a little more than |722.- 
000. It is asking a little too much 
of the public to contribute three- 
quarters of a million dollars to one 
set of games Just at the moment 
when sjl the great minds of the na- 
tion' are urging the people to exer- 
cise economy. And this amount does 
not indicate the outlay of 'those who 
attend the series. More than twice 
that- much Was spent In expenses, 
hotel bills, railroad faresfftaxJeabs! 

'•The 'winning players received 85,- 
250 each, which Is fully two 'years' 
salary to some of them, in other 
words, when a player can make In 
the week of the series as much as he 
does In two years of regular salary 
he Is bound to become dissatisfied In 
case his elub does not win the SenT 
nant. Magnates declare that the false 
prices will give the younger nhtyer, 
especially, the Impression that base- 
ball to a gold mine and he will de- 
mand more salary than' can be paid. 
There were several bail clubs that 
made no money at all this year, but 
It is not difficult to believe that when 
one is faced with the receipts of the 
World Series. Minor league man- 
ager* are In such a predicament that 
they are begging for the big event 
to *e discontinued, or their little 
leagues, which furnish the big league 
material, will face financial ruin 
when it comes to making contracts I 
for next year. ~ ~ ' 

Whore Will It Got 
Baseball people are aleo curious to 
know Just what will be done with 
the 873,000 paid to the national com- 
mission aa Its share of the receipts. 
Is It to be used ss a sinking fund or' 
what? It surely Is much more than 
enough to pay the salaries necessary 
to conduct the businees of the com- 

The 3 19A.O00 paid to each of the 
two club owners will be put to a 
good purpose. WmfOr a new rale this 
money to distributed among the 
several clubs in the two leagues and 
will help out those Who had an un- 
fortunate season. ' 

Now, aa to the nine games — it to 
quite evident that the public tired of 
the long dream ofct affair; the Inter- 
est could not be sustained. The at- 
tendance at the last game la Cincin- 
nati proved that conclusively. What 
started out with a great fire Of en- 
thusiasm wound up In a painful but 
tolerant wait. The public to a lively 
partner In baseball and mutt be con- 

There were net enough well-to-do 
people in a city the etoe of ClncJaatl 
to pay |C a Stay for a week to see

niost ratcd Lecture at St. An- 

drrw's Church Tuesday Evening 

A very interesting illustrated lec- 
ture was given Tuesday evening by 
Mr. C. H. Prepeh. in the hall of St. 
Andrew's Church. Mr. French dealt 
with the habits of the different In- 
dian tribes that Inhabit Western and 
Northwestern Canada, and showed 
what rapid advancement the Indiana 
bad made during the last half-cen- 
tury, developing from a" savage stage 
to one of considerable enlightenment 
and civilization. The slides thrown 
on the screen gave the, audience a 
descriptive idea of this advancement 
by showing the Improved conditions 
under which the Indiana live today. 

The methods of hunting their food 
and of preparing it when caught were 
particularly interesting pictures. 
Scenes were also given of the Indians 
of Vancouver Island. Fins specimens 
of big game were shown, and one 
Picture Waa much commented on,. It 
was taken by Mr. -French and showed 
the beaver In the act of felling a 
tree. Most of the photographs were 
taken hy Mr. French, but some, 
h earer home, wets takes by Mr. May- 
nard, who officiated at the lantern. 

During the evening a vocal item 
was excellently rendered by Mrs. 
'Morrison. At the close of the' lec- 
turer Mr. French exhibited a number 
of raw furs and commented upon the 
method used to prepare them for the 
market; occasionally touching upon 
the pries, Which In every ease was 
greatly In excess of the price ob- 
tained a few years ago. 



TOLEDO. Ohio, pet. 20.— State- 
ments of a private detective that he 
had discovered a plot to kidnap 
Bdsel Ford, son of Henry Ford, and 
hold him for 1300,000 ransom, led 
to the arrest here today of four men. 
The detective gav* his name aa 
Floyd Gray, and he said he cam* to 
Toledo from the Bast in connection 
with strike disorders and became 
aware of the plot while stopping at 
a local hotel. 

The prisoners are Richard Ram- 
say, San Franelsco, Bddle Cole, 
alias KJnwey. Loulsvlie. Ky., Joseph 
8. Fisher, New York City, and Claude 
Cameron, of Toledo. 

Gray said Kinney revealed the plot 
t* secure young Ford and imprison 
hint in a bouse in Mount Clemens, 

Crawshay entered Raffles' room in- 
tent on getting baolt the prise for 
Which he had bartered his liberty. 
Raffles disclaimed all knowledge of 
It and in the meantime the police, 
who had been following Crawshay, 
were waiting to catch them, In the 
act of dividing the booty. ' "Why, 
blarst yer. gov'nor, ye could tike 
the nllln's from a cove's back teeth 
wlvout dlsturbln' his conversation," 
said Crawshay. "Delicate sense of 
humor, eh. Bunny?" said Raffles to 
his friend, who waa present at the 
interview, but how Raffles outwits 
the. burglar and the police, as well as 
wins the wager, Is much more inter- 
esting on the Variety screen, where 
the picture Is being shown this week. 

Ollson Wlllstts. who 
, wrote the scenario of 
Ruth Roland's new 
Pat he serial. "The Tiger '• Trail." the 
fifth episode of which will be shown 
at the Romano today, explained to a 
friend the other day how ho attained 
the intimate knowledge of the tiger 
and his habits, whleh Is manifest In 

Jungle monarch figures during the 
picture- "I have traveled' a great deal 
ta India." said Mr. Willets, "and at 
one time I spent some time visiting 
the Prinee of Baroda. Me has a groat 
collection of captive tigers, In fact, 
captive tigers seem to be a fad 
among the Indian princes. I was 
greatly interested in the tigers and 
the Prince, noticing this, gave me the 
run of his aoo and Anally allowed 'me 
to go with him on a tiger hunt.

No Qrugs to Take. No Sicken-

When the. three Dominion trawlers 
reached Victoria some time ago from 
Halifax, they bad o« board a eollae- 
tlon of parrots and'parroquets gath- 
ered while down south. From what 
can bo gathered, the peta have since 
practically all died. There was ono 
big bird on the Thlepval that was 
very cranky. It would snap at any- 
one who attempted to pet It. 'The 
bird would talk In Spanish, having 
come from Mexico, and the men on 
board got the Idea that the words 
used were swear words. As one or 
the officers was going to take the bird 
home with him, 'hie shipmates en- 
deavored to make the parrot a fit In- 
mate of a respectable dwelling, and 
so. whan It started one of Its out- 
bursts of Spanish, a bystander would 
give it a box on the side of the head. 
After the old bird has endured a 
great deal of punishment, it was dis- 
covered that the parrot was not 
swearing but making love In Spanish.

after the river had cleared during a 
subsequent ..warm spell. , The tem- 
perature is now ranging between SO 
and SO degrees above gero In many 
places along the Yukon, and the river.

Pros ha r tal 

Walker of the Department of Im- 
migration and Colonisation, Winnipeg. 
"The letter la as follows:' . 

"As" the result of 1 the Immigration 
Department advertising Canadian 
farm lands for sale In the United 
States newspapers In the Western 
States, a large number of Inquiries 
with- respect to the purchase of such 
Canadian farm hinds Is being received 
weekly at the Canadian Government 
Agencies throughout the States. 

"In order that these Inquiries might 
receive the moat direct attention, the 
Hon. Mr. Calder. Minister of Immigra- 
tion and Colonisation, thought that It 
might' be an excellent and practical 
idea to bring the' Inquirer after Can- 
adian farm lands Into direct corre- 
spondence with persons In Canada 
owning or deaifhg as agents In the f 
sale of Canadian farm lands. The 
Minister's Idea is, that If an organisa- 
tion could bo formed in each Province 
consisting of persons engaged In the 
skle and settlement of Canadian farm 
lands, arrangements might be made 
whereby the names of these inquirers, 
so far aa they appear to desire Infor- 
mation regarding .the purchase of Can- 
adian lands and which are received 
by our agents in the United Statee, 
might be placed In tho bands of such 
owner* or agents of Canadian lands 
for the purpose of transacting busi- 

"Associations of this character have 
been formed In the Prairie Provinces, 
and it is proposed to have a prelimi- 
nary meeting of all persons engaged 
In the sale of Canadian farm lands In 
British Columbia in Vancouver, on a 
date to be subsequently determined, 
end of which you will be duly advised. 
All persons, companies or corporations 
engaged either as owners or agents In 
the sale of Canadian farm lands in the 
Province of British Columbia are in- 
vited to be present and take part In 
tho discussion that may arise with re-' 
spect to the proposed formation at a

ment association."
