The. total power available during the .season of navigation Ola;, to November) by utilizing the total head of 135 feet, is estimated at l,0'�>.imo horsepower, and is divided anions the different rapids in proportion to' the head in each. Ra wir.a'^'ial for pulp and lumber industries is found all along the river and at the iapids. The Peace River canyon has long been renowned for the wild character of its waters, and no white man or Indian, be he ever so experienced-'in river work, or argsd on by foolha'rdi" ness, ever attempts to run its rapids. Rafts or boats, by carelessness or otherwise, allowed to drift past its upper gates are never seen again, being engulfed by some of its many powerful whirlpools. It is little wonder that the velocity of its waters should ibe so great when one considers, as has recently been ascertained, that the descent from head to foot, is some 226 feet in a distance of less than eighteen miles. This immediately suggests its possibilities as a water power development. The. total minimum j.ower available during the open water season (May to November) is estimated at 400,000 horsepower. This is based on the assumption that the total head of 225 feet can be utilized, its development for water power purposes will involve rather intricate problems, but. to compensate for this, one imvsi consider its situation near the raw material for pulp and lumber industries'. It is also at the head of navigation on the Peace River, and lying adjacent to it are immense coal fields, large portions of which have been already staked out. The tirst liioetin:; .

(i.-Four automobile bandits smashed a ie'welk'i'r window here and escaped with a tray of diamonds, after a running revoivi-,- t'iRhi with the police. Their esrapv. A. G. Cameron, minister of the church, presided, and on the platform with him were Rev. Canon McMillan of St.. Cyprian's church; Rev. T. P. Perry of Wesley church; Kev. A. C. Bryan of St. Andrew's church; Rev. A. C. Watson of the First Baptist church; Rev. Joseph Woodsworth of Westminster church, and Dr. J. H. Rivers. Tlie choir of Knox church led the singing which was hearty and inspiring. Rev. A. C. Bryan ottered the opening prayer, after which Di\ Rivers was introduced and delivered an encouraging address baaed on Christ's command iu the garden just previous to Gethsemane, "Rise, let us go." Dr. Rivers emphasized that it was the first gathering of the 5'oung people for the year and it gave inspiration to the thought of consecration. It sounded the note of summons to a higher plane of Christian life. It was a time for action and deeds. If they were to make progress in the new year it would be , necessary to get rid of bad habits. Not the habits of grosser offences but of those "propensities which come into the life and hinder progress." They should let Jesus come into their hearts, and to do so meant \hat some times companions had to be given up who do not tend to help to the higher life. They had to be careful to whom they gave the right latch key to their hearts. They had to be careful o� their associations. They Were doing business for God and it was not a question of playing. Dr. Rivers in the course of his earnest address urged a high standard and an honest effort to live up to it. The age calls for high standards in business and in polities," and in theology. He wondered whether the old book has the same place in the life as it had in olden days when our father used to read it in the home and impress its precepts on the young. Rev. A. C. Watson of the First Baptist church followed in an address couched in beautiful language, calling for loyalty to Christ. He denned loyalty as meaning the same thing as consecration but a word which was less mystifying. The call to loyalty involved a call to true Christian service regarding Christ's cause as calling for the best in our lives. Mr. Watson quoted a number of selections designed to illumidvte his thought, and his address waa listened to with deep interest. \ Rev. Mr. Cameron 1 lid that ths series had been given tb, right key note and that the week should count for something in the lives of all. During the service Miss Simm rendered a solo. The meeting tonight will be held in Westminster church, and the addresses will be delivered by Rev. A. C. Bryan and Mr. S. S. Dunham.
