Fernie, Jan. 10.-An event wh:ch has been established as an annual* affair, took place last night in the Fernie Methodist church when the piano recital by Miss West's class took place, the proceeds going to the Red Cross fund. The auditorium of the church was well filled with an audience which was treated to a most interesting as well as enjoyable program. The programme, which consisted of twenty-one numbers, contained pome selections which were quite amlvtious and taking into consideration the extreme youthfulness of most of the pupils, it was a most creditable exhibition of their musical skill. The programme opened with a piano dust by Miss"West and Harold V. Anderson; then followed piano solos in which younger members of the class performed. Mr. Daniels, principal of the public schools, as local secretary of the Mc-Gill University Conservatory of Music, then disrtibuted the diplomas, as awarded by the Conservatory, wh'ch was the cost interesting part of the programme to the recipients. In the theoretical examinations, there were eleven pupils who wrote, four of whom passed with distinction. The eleven who pessed were: Juliette Andre. Norma Douglass, Dorothy McLean and Elsie Potter, all with honors, and Ada Harper, Xettie Ingram, Alice Kerr, Mary L'phardt. Aubery McLean, Alice Quail and Dora Riz- zuzto. Elsie Potter made the exceptional score of 14S points out of a possible 150. In the practical piano-fort examination, there were seven applicants, five of them passing with honors. Harold V. Anderson heads this list with the highest score of*any one in the same grade in the Dominion quite n distinction, both for the pupil and his teacher. Miss West. Four others in this class. Juliett Andre, Fred Elley. Ada Harper and Nettie Ingram passed with honcrs, and Els'e Potter and Alice Quail also passed wth good scores. Mss West and Harold Anderson opened the second part of the instrumental programme with another piano duet, and Mr. and Mrs. Watson helped to entertain by rendering each a solo, Mr. Wat3on on tho violin and Mrs. Watson with u vocal solo, both were recalled. It is with no discredit to the other performers of the evening to say that Harold Anderson's rendering of Chopin's Polonats. Number f>. was the event of the evening. His execution as well as his interprets ion of the Master, be'ng most excellent. Mr. Anderson's friends are most enthusiastic as to his future success in a profession to which he has devoted himself. As stated by Mr. Daniels in presenting the diplomas, the parents, of Fernie may justly feel proud of their children and in the.fait that they have the advantage of so thorough a teacher as Miss West. Ottawa, Jan. 11.-With tho return oj tho prime minster to Ottawa, definite action may be expected shortly in regard to various important, matters now pending. The date when pro* hibttlon of the manufacture of alcoholic liquors will become effective baa-been under consideration of the war cabinet for some time and is expected shortly to be announced.

He also sucfjested the abolition of a number of exceptional oppressive regulations ln> Poland, laid stress on the necessity of obtaining amnesty and discussed arrangements to hasten assumption by the Polish government of the administrative departments and the question of the ap. polntment of Foli?h diplomatic representatives to friendly and neutral nations. The production of beet sugar in Franco this year has been estimated at only 207.000 tons, as compurod with au average annual production during tite five years before the war (IU0S- 13) of 752,542. Normal consumption in Franco is 704,830 tons. The beet sugar production of Italy has also been reduced from it pre-war average of 211,* 050 tons to 75 000 tons. The pre-war annual consumption of sugar in the United Kingdom was 2.056,000 tons, all oflwhieh had to tye imported. About 70 per cent, of the supply of the United Kingdom came from countries from which it is now cut off by the war. Great Britain, Franco and Italy would require to import about 2.700.-000 tons before the next crop, and most of it from new sources, if they were to maintain their normal consumption. But the necessity of conserving supplies of sugar, which was emphasized by the shortage of shipping, has resulted in stern economies among the Allies. Before the war, England had the largest per capita consumption of sugar of any nation-93 1-3 pounds per person per year. This has now been reduced to 26 pounds per person per year, or about one ounce per day per person. In Great Britain prices have now been fixed for jams and jellies. There is no su^ar for the homemade product. In France the people are on rations of 1.1 pounds per person per month, which the govern-ment distributts at about 25 cents 1 per pound. In Italy, because of the shortage of R.ugar supplies, tho government has set a retail price of $1.25 for a box containing 2.2 pounds. In Germany the present nugnr Ration is only .77 pounds per person per month. In the United States and Canada the per capita monthly consumption of sugar is about 7.4 pounds. The Food Controller has asked Canadians to re d u c a theirs consumption of augur by at least, 7 ounces per week per person and in ordor to provide larger supplies to meet the necessary requirements of the allien, a further reduction to; 3 pounds per person per month may be urged. Steps have already been taken to curtail the use of cane fitignr In candy-making, and the use of sugar or mo-htases in distillation of potable liquors has been prohibited. About 50 per cent, of the sugar consumed in North America is imported from Cuba so that the Cuban product is the dominating market, factor. The International Sugar Commission, representing the allied countries as welt as the United States food administration and the Food Controller for Canada, is endeavoring to secure tho Cuban production at a reasonable price. By curtailing consumptinn in this country, so that (he necessity of securing the Cuban crop is not so urgent, the peonlc of Cmada will be assisting the Sugar Commission, the allied countries and themselves in obtaining supplies for snring' and sum mer at lower prices than .would otherwise be possible.
