At the Methodist district meeting here last week, one of the delegates from the Crow's Nest Pass made the statement that school children in one Probably the existing school accommo- dated In a church and wero without the regulation desks or black board. The Minister of Education should in- quire Into this condition of affairs, school and provide complete accommo- dation Is over-taxed; but If so proper facilities should bo provided iu any building that is being temporarily used. Further, the local authorities should use every means to enlarge the school and provide complete accomo- datlon for the school population. Pro- per conveniences for education of the young are the most important service that a community can supply, it things are as stated at Ihe district meeting, it Is deplorable and remedy "should be applied without delay. IN PUBLIC LIFE BEFORE B, C. A PROVINCE. A remarkable man died at Victoria, B. C., last week. He was 93 years' of and had lived Iu that city seventy years. He was a member oi the first Legislative Assembly of Vancouver Ts- alnd and was its first Speaker. That was before Confederation, and before the union of the Island and the present mainland of British Columbia. ,Ue was a member of the eiecutlve council after the Union, and one of the" three representatives of the Province ,who negotiated with the Dominion Gor ornment the conditions of British Columbia's entry into Confederation; He was a considerable factor in shap- ing the political destinies of this part of Canada. At first he did not ap- prove of the Confederation proposal, and we are surprised to find the Vic- toria Times remark In referring to this fact that a large proportion of the people ot British Columbia now share the opinion which he held, half :a century ago in this respect. There has not teen much evidence in recent years ot discontent in the Pacific province with Its place In th Confederation. 'From sentimental ant other standpoints, we believe th j British Columbia benefits by its ex ifttence as a province of Canada. Reverting to Mr. Helmcken, it I worth noting that his wife" was daughter of Sir James Douglas, seconi governor of the Vancouver Isla colony. It was in 1856 that Dr. Helm cken was elected to the first Legli latlvo Assembly of Vancouver Islan for Esquimau district. nflBay Freedom of Ire- and League Ottawa that ils'allles "wfluid'hold the British Cab- net guilty of murder if MacSwiney anil the foronfo Telegram'was irompted to observe that "Crawford eems to be able to hold anything but his tongue." .MR. BOYLE AND .LAW ENFORCEMENT. Attorney-General Boyle holds Ihe municipal authorities responsible fo lax law' enforcement in the Crov.-' Nest Pass. That, to our mind, is no an excuse for the provincial police force not being on the job at the time. It must be remembered nlsc that only a few ot the mining camp the Pass are Incorporated and em ploy police ot their own.
