I see that the Fort Young Hotel Company is expanding its activities. It
clearly does not agree with the Government's view that there is no future in
tourism for Deminica.
According to a prospectus recently issued, the Company is inviting applications
for the purchase of shares in order to extend its hotel business. The immediate
scheme is for the purchase of Clarke Hall Estate in the Layou Valley and the
erection thereon of an hotel in surroundings which provide such good bathing
facilities and opportunities for very interesting walks. It is proposed to
establish in connection with the hotel our first 18-hole golf course as part
of the recreational facilities.
The Fort Young Hotel Company with its record of uninterrupted success is ob-
viously the appropriate concern to carry us into this new venture of country
club style of hotel now that tourism as a viable industry for Dominica has been
decided upon by thinkers in the private sector bf the economy. The marked success
of the Company in running Fort Young is its best credential in the matter.
The Company's authorised share capital is $5 million and for the project
under review it is seeking to raise $1 1/2 million in shares of a nominal value
of $100 at a price of $110. Thus the Clarke Hall hotel project is an extension
of the Company's Fort Young Hotel activities whose success may be gauged from
the fact that dividends on shares paid during the past four years have been
as follows: 1965: 12 1/2%; 1966: 20%; 1967: 18%; 1968: 25%.
I understand that subscriptions, particularly from persons of modest means,
are flowing in rapidly. Miss Eugenia Charles is Secretary of the Company.
This leads me to the reflection: why is it that a Company which is being so.
successful is promoting tourism is meeting with so much difficulty from Govern-
ment? Especially in the matter of extending the present Fort Young Hotel, it
is rumoured that Government prefers to keep the nearby Peebles Park (which is
never used by the public) in its present condition rather than sell or lease
it to the Company at a reasonable price. And yet, granting land is one of the
chief encouragements given by Governments to the development of tourism all
over the world. This attitude certainly tallies with our Government's declaration
at the beginning of the year that it sees no future for tourism in Dominica.

The columnist "Polycarp" in a recent issue of this paper I am afraid barked
up the wrong tree.
That columnist was, as everyone else does, bewailing and deploring the con-
dition of the main public road fronting the Dom-Can Timbers factory at Check
Hall and thought that that Company should be compelled to keep the road in
better condition. There is no doubt that if this were a public road something
drastic would have to be done about it.
The fact of the case, however, is that the road passing through the Dom-Can
sawmill at Check Hall is no longer public property. It is now the property of
the Company and it is only by its grace that the public is being allowed to
use it. Thus we may not scrutinise the teeth of this gift horse.
The present Government has assigned this road to Dom-Can in exchange for the
cost of building a bypass more inland to avoid the factory. Dom-Can quite some
time ago carried out its obligation and the Government has got the money but
does not yet consider the building of the bypass urgent. Hence things are what
they are as every driver knows to his cost. Dom-Can is not, therefore, blame-
worthy in the matter.
While on this subject, what.about the side pedestrian lanes for the Old Roseau
River Bridge for which-.the Opposition put through a Resolution in the House of
Assembly some time ago? Daily the population, human and vehicular, crossing the
bridge is increasing. Are we waiting for the accident which will hasten commence-
ment of the work?

ANDROCLES (Continued from Page Two)
Again, still on the subject of communications: if you turn off on the Layou
Bridge and go inland towards Pond Casse, after about 25 minutes driving, come
to a low-lying bridge near York Valley Estate which is one of the most dangerous
bridges on 'our roads. This is the point at which Mr. Lander went down in his
jeep and met his death a year or two ago. At that time the bridge was in even
safer condition. Since then .the side railings have been flattened outwards, due
no doubt to the passage of some Government bulldozer.
Now this is a point where at least three Government Ministers pass frequently
- not less than weekly and it is a bridge upon which hundreds of vehicles
carrying thousands of passengers from almost all parts of Dominica must cross
every week. Why taunt Fate with human lives in this way?.There is clear need
to improve the safety of .the approaches to this bridge which has.remained in
its present condition for months, if not years*

One of the most interesting occurances at the meeting of the House of Assembly
on 4th/5th December was the refusal of the Opposition to accept a seat on the
Public Accounts Committee of the House.
The Opposition argued that its treatment by Government in its everyday
activities indicated persistent lack of consideration. Even in the basic matter
of posing questions in the interest of the country, the Opposition continually
found itself "up against it", the latest being, of course, the ejection of the
Third Nominated Mamber, Hon. E.B. Henry, from the House.
In its generally undemocratic posture, the Government would wish to look.
respectable by being able to point to a Public Accounts Committee which included
the Opposition, as is found in truly democratic countries. The positionn will
have none of it, as the Leader of the Opposition stated, until Government mends
its ways and adopts true democratic attitudes. .-
Moreover, as the Third Nominated Member pointed out, Government was making
a farce of the Public Accounts Committee by its nominees. A Public Accounts
Committee is a serious business superintending the accounts of the State to
ensure that all expenditures of Government is in accordance with appropriation.
This is a work involving a good deal of competence in accounting procedure.
The Premier countered that the persons he was nominating have the necessary
competence since some of them.held trade unions. Accordingly, he
nominated Hon'bles Leslie (Portsmbuth), Antoine Henry (Castle Bruce), L.C.
Didier (Eastern District) and Arnold Active (Nominated) to keep the necessary
continuous check on the accounts of the State of Dominica.

Historical Article SOME' LITTLE-IKOWN FACTS ABOUT DOIIITICA by Fr. ioosnans
from The Lions Club national day brochure.
COLUMBUS did indeed discover Doninica on Sundajy,-rd Iovcnber, 1493, in the
early morning, but neither he nor any of his crow landod here on that day. He
sailed along our ocean coast till he sighted Maric Galante, detached one of
his 17 vessels to search the northern and eastern coasts. In the afternoon
they found the large closed bay (therefore known as Granido Anse, or Portsmouth),
and again without landing set out to report to the Admiral when they joined at
nightfall at Mario Galanto. This can be considered as historically certain.
The first mention of the Dominica Carib is in the Decree of King Fordinand.
The first known Spanish report on Doninica is that of P. Davila in 1514.
The first Spanish historian to visit the island was Oviodo, who cane with
Davila. The first French really to settle in Doninica and'clain it for'France
cane in 1635. The first Dominican Friar to call at Rosoau,, Grande Anso, and
Vioillo Case in 1642 was Fr. Raymond Breton. Thc'first mass of which we know
was celebrated at Vioillo Case in September, 1646, by the Capuchin Father
Alexis. The only village of which the date of foundation is known is Kulihao
(Colihaut) in 1648/49,
Carib Warner and his people were killed by the English of Antigua in
January 1675, probably at IMssacre. When Fr. Labat visited Dominica in 1700,
he not with the mother of Carib Warnor; according to hin then exceedingly old,
yet she need not have boon noro than in her nineties.
The first French land settlers came in 1717. I'ltthiou St. Arronont was one
of the first French comnnndors settled on land that carries his name up to the
present day. The first Parish Priest was Fr. Willian. Anastel (1730-1740) who
in 1731 built the first a wooden Catholic Churchl The French organised
the island into districts in 1749. The chapel of the Jesuits at Geneva was-
blosoed on'Christnas Day of the sane year. 'The English took Doninica in 1761,
the French retook it front then in September, 1778, to have it returned to the
English in 1784. (See date on the Roseau Boys' School and the old military
Soon after this the Anglican Church (on Church Savannah) was in a dilapi-
dated states and front 1789 to 1822 the Anglicans used part of the Courthouse
as Church, with an avcrago Sunday attendance of 28 people. Here Rector Charles
Poters preached his two anti-slavery sermons on Good Friday and Easter Sunday
i800, and was therefore driven off the island. By way of Divine punishnont
the Anglicans were for a decade plagued by notorious Rector Audain, whose
excesses were made known in the West Indies by the first Anglican Bishop
Coleridge and his nephew.

Fort Shirley became famous through the rebellion of the 1st Black Rqginent
in 1802~ soon to be overshadowed by the saving of Governor Provost during the
French invasion of General Lagrange.

1822 was the year the Anglicans had their now Church 1824 the Methodists.
The Catholics were for onme 35 years building their Cathedral.

Abolition Day is not the first Monday in August, but exactly the 1st day of
August, which in that menorable year was not a day of feasting but of mourning
for the newly arr:.ved Governor, who had succumbed to yellow fever the day before
_(July 31st). .

County''and Minor County sides at their
two-day committee' meeting at Lord's Cridk-

Pelo told reporters; "I am saturated
with travelling, and because of this
I expcct to play only three or four
more years and then dedicate myself to
my great ambition teaching children".
Poel-does not like brute force in foot-
ball: "Football is an artistic profes-
sion, comparable with the work of a
sd4ptor who must model a figure with
technique and talent. I do not like
force. I believe a sportsman must be in
good physical condition, but he must
hot leave aside technique in his profes-
sion." When asked which players have
bothered him most in games, Pel6 named
Adhemar of Brazil, Trapoloin of Italy,
Schultz of Germany and Jose Varacca of
Argentina. "Winning is important, but
personally I do not like war", he said.
Slow handclaps greeted England, the
World Champions, as they failed time

Rommel (cont. from page three)
At Christmas, it's different. After
a short survey I have come to the con-
clusion that Dominicans seem to regard
Christmas as a period of quietude, calm,
ness and peace and not an annual fiesta.
when you drive the spirit into you and
the devil out of you as is experienced
during CarniVal, It is pleasing to note
that at Christmas we prefer to be easy-
going, even on the ham and wine; although
many of us -ill end up at a Mitdnight
Mass to try out a soprano, alto, tenor
or bass throat that has swallowed a
little too much of the "lively" spirit.
As I set my mind a-thinking I am still
wondering what pco-Le mean by "Which is
more enjoyable?" and in what sense?

the only technical school of its kind
in the world and the famous Dr.Kinman
of Cincinnati U. was a lecturer on water
Mr. Rock paid many visits to other
states in the union to see various ex-
amples of water and sewage projects.
In the coloured brochure put out by
the college the face of Walter Rock

Hon. Moise's iRepl to Throne Speech

Ccontinued' from Supplement (i)
Mr. Speaker, the Opposition notes with
particular regret that the Government
on the eve of its departure from office
has not been able to provide a single
low-cost house foi the poorer classes
during its long period of power, a per-
formance in great and unfavourable oon-
trast'wi6th its predecessor Government.
.**., go Opposition would have been
encouraged if Government had decided
to remove the accretion of repressive
legislation built up during its years
in office. This would have improved the
investment climates, restored the con-
fidence of investors and thereby incr-
eased employment opportunities for the
people 'of Dominica.
***.... Opposition welcomes a re-
view of the salaries of Civil Servants
and of non-established Government em-
ployees. I1t is earnestly that relioe
will not be postponed to make it do-
incide with the period of the forth-
coming clectioni It hopes too that due
note will be taken of the plight of
small pensioners.
.*.4 Me Opposition is scandalised
that there are no proposals for increas-
ing the rates payable for public assistS
ance to take account of the vastly
increased cost-of-living which Govern-
ment has pormi'tted. Our hearts go out
to our humbler fellow-Dominicans so in-
volved for it is incredible that Gov-
ernment proposes nothing to relieve the
hardships of this section of the pop-
Mr. Speaker, as I said earlier, this
is the swan-soilg of the Government and
f the Opposition, not in the least des-
irous of prolonging it, merely records
its profound disappointment at the Gov-
ernment's performance of so little
over so long.
