CRANBROOK, B. I).  SATURDAY  MORNING FEBRUARY 28th, 1914

Laws on Plumbing are
chaotic
"In tho Dominion of Canada wo
lia\*o no recognized universal standards regarding Httnttary piumhlng
an.) ventilation, hut nro governed hy
a multiplicity uf lawn and by-lawn,
adopted hy tlio governing bodies ot
our cities und towns and enforced according to their own Interpretation."
With them- words, Mr. John W. llruce
general organizer of the United As-
Hi-.iuti..ii of Plumbers and Bteam-
littora, prefaced an address at the r.th
Annual Meeting of tho Commission
of Conservation ou the mihject of the
present choatto stnte of sanitary law
iu Canada, and the need for its unitization.
In the course of his address, Mr.
Hence emphasized tho importance of
sanitary plumbing in its relation to
public health. Ho compared Montreal, with the death rate of 20 per
thousand, with Toronto, which has a
death-rate of 12. S, and attributed the
differancc In large part, to the more
lax enforcement of (military regulations in the former. In many hotels
he said, there wore not enough con
voniencea, neither were they kept properly clean. In npnrtment houses,
conservation of space was such an
important item that ventilation was
sadly neglected. Ho blamed specul
Intive building for the unsatisfactory
conditions in many private houses.
Tho speculative builder considered
outside appearance more than proper
sanitation. Inspection was very necessary in wurkingn.eu'a huuiiee, as
these men were less able to protect
thrmR-'lves against thc negligence of
unscrupulous  builders.
A very groat need, very much overlooked in Canada, was public com
fort stations, These should he erected not merely hi parks and pleasure
resorts, but in the busiest portions
of our cities, where the need was the
greatest. As it wns, lintels and public buildings bad to bear the burden
that the cities themselves should
shoulder, with tbo result that the
conveniences in these places were Badly overtaxed. Sanitary drinking
fountains should nlso be provided at
public expense.
In conclusion Mr. Bruce pointed
out that satisfactory conditions
would never obtain bo long as each
city or town had its own regulations
Plumbers travelling from one
place to another had to familiarize
themselves with new laws, and sometimes had to pass new examinations
in overy place. Moreover, dwellers
in rural districts, beyond the reach
of urban Influence, were not protected
by any legal standard. The solution
he believed, could only be found in
a Dominion law, setting up a uniform standard from coaBt to coast,
leaving ouch municipality free to supplement such standard by bylaws designed to secure adaptation to special local conditions,

success.
The tirst number on the programme
was "Humpty Dumpty sat on a Wall
hy the King Edward school. Then
followed a drill hy the school children under thc direction of Miss Rumsey. A recitation hy the Mlssea Wilson, Walllnger, Green and Wilson
thnt was exteemly good. The Blue
Bells of Scotland was sung hy a chor
us of eight voicos; then came a minuet danced hy six of the pupils; little Miss Patricia McDermot danced a
highland fling and an Irish Jig in a
manner that placed her in the opinion of the audience as an accomplish
ed performer, and as an appreciation
she was presented with a handsome
bouquet; songs and dances followed
in rapid succession; the closing scene
being "Snowdrop" a piece specially
adapted to children, and which was
received with much pleasure and applause.
The entertainment dosed with singing "Thc Maple l.eal" tho national
anthem.
The pupils without exception aro
entitled to much credit for the excellent, manner In which they recited
their lines and took tholr several
parts; and to the teachers must be
given a large amount ol credit for
the painstaking manner in which the
children wore instructed, for the perseverance they must hnve exercised,
which brought about the success
with which their efforts were crowned

Y. M. C^A. Notes
Last Friday, one of the most enjoyable debates of the season was held
in the class room. The subject was
"Should Canada have a Navy" The
speakers wore Messrs. Oliver Dristnw
and Harold Bronsdon for the affirm*
tive nnd Messrs. Leslie Williams and
Cecil K. Roede for the negative.
At tlio close of the debate a popular vote waa taken ami the affirmatives won.
Thia debate was easily tbe best con
tested that tbo boys have ever bad,
the debaters having a most comprehensive grasp ot thc topic.
The "Y's"-men were the winners of
tho Checker Tournament. We are
now getting up a Chosa Tournament
and all Chess players are invited to
take part.
Very little has boon done on the
Shooting (Jallcry lately as our targets have gone astray some place on
the road. Immediately on receipt of
them we will pull ofl the competlt
ion.
The Bowling Alleys continue to run
full time and monopolize the most of
the attention. For the details of the
standing of thfe teams, of which there
are ten, drop In and have a look at
the bullitin hoards. A return game
with the Brunswick Alleys waa played Thursday night resulting in a win
for the Y.M. Team. This equalizes
matters as the Brunswickers were the
winners on their own alley... Thursday, a team named the "Aye-Ayes"
which, Interpreted, means the "Irre-
sistable Invinclbles," will play the
winners of the match of February 20,
and anticipate an easy victory,
Friday, the Tigers and the Ramblers pull off a schedule game. Haturday at 16.30 the C. P. R. Stenographers will play the city Steno-
gruptiurs. Ladies are invited to this
game gnd we believe it la going to
be very interesting,
Last< night, prior to the match,
the Bowling executive held a meeting
at which there waa a good attendance the hiiBinesa transacted was of
great importance to those interested.
Laat night Mr. A. B, Smith gave a
talk to the men on "Poultry." This
address waa very Interesting and instructive and given by a man who
knows. Theae addresses are under tne
auspices of the Debating Society.
There are to he some more talks a
long this lino—Look out for them.
The class for instruction ln Air
Brake and Klectrlc Headlight was

Sad Accident
Earl Park was brought to-the St.
Eugene Hospital ou Thursday, badly
injured through being run over by a
logging train north of Wyclifle.
Mr. Park bad heen working on the
logging road for the Staples Lumber
Company, and was at the time engaged in switching cars on to the
sidetrack. He ran ahead of thll par
tieuhit' train and threw on the switch
then he guve tbe necessary signal for
the engineer to go ahead; he then
made to cross the truck but bis foot
caught in a frog wblch threw him tn
the ground, the cars coming along
passed over hia right log Hoveling It
just above the knee nntl alao severely
crushing the left leg. A phone message was Immediately sent in to Wyclifle, and the Klmherley train was
hold until the arrival of the logging
train, when the injured man wbb hurried to the'hospital at Cranhrook.
Upon arrival at tbe hospital it waa
found necessary to amputate the remaining part of the right leg, and
while the bone of the left leg was
not broken, the flcah was so badly
bruised that it will be some days before the doctors can decide whether
the limb can be saved.
The shock waa very severe, hut the
injured man passed a fairly good
night, and the doctors hold out hope
of his recovery.
Earl Park, the braketnan, wbo was
so seriously injured in nn accident
on thc Staples Lumber Co.'h logging
road on Thuraday, died nt tho St.
Eugene Hospital on Saturday morning at 2.30 a.m. The funeral aervice
will be undes the auspices of the Brotherhood of Railway trainmen, of
which order the deceased was a member. Undertaker W. R. Beattie will
have charge of the funeral the hate
of which ia at present not decided.
Radium Ores in the
West
Since tho announcement of the pres
once of radium ores in the West and
of the operation of plants far the pro
ductlon of the metal iii Colorado bus
been made, considerable interest in
thi- subject has been aroused and the
Nelson New. having been asked by u
prospector to describe the properties
of pitchblende or uranlnlte, the rock
which rum*1, radium, prints the following,
"The Encyclopaedia Am-henna it
states that pitchblende is a dark
green to black mineral belonging to
ttie Iflolmetric or cubical system and
that It usually occurs in a massive
condition. It in brittle. Hh bardnOBfl
is given at 5,5, its specific gravity at.
from C.4 to 9.7. Its lustre is sub-
metallic ami greasy or pitchlike, it
iB streaked brownish blatK to dark
olive green.
"Pitchblende is. an oxide of uranium and may he considered a uranate
of urnnyl. It frequently contains
some leah.
"Regardin^-'the treatment of pitch
blende to secure the radium vbIucb,
W. J. Hammer, a well known consult
ing electrical engineer, states that it
takes 5,000 tons of uranium residue.
that is, pitchblende after the uranium has been extracted, to mnke a
kilo {2.2 Mis.) of by no means pure
radium. It takes a month to work
the process and costs $2,0(10 a ton to
refine uranium residues, according ta
this authority.
"A kilo of radium, according to
Professor Curie, who, with Irs wife,
Madame Curio, lirst isolated the metal, Ib sufficient tn destroy tbe eye
sight, burn ofl the skin and probably
kill a man wbo happens to he ln the
sam*» room with it. Its nction ia
through invlsable rays which it e-
mlts."

Closer Utilization of
Timber
Popular opinion holds tbe lumber
man responsible for tne wastage of
50 to 70 per cent of the timber which
he handles, this waste consisting uf
high stumps, broken tre'-a, logs and
uncut timber left in the woods, ami
of aawduat, slabs, edgings, and trlm-
ings at the mills. The lumbermen
maintains that bo saves as much ma
tcrial aa he can at u prolit, and that
be should not lie charged with wilful
waste when he refuses to handle material which cannot be sold for at
least the cost of production.
Conditions which make possible
closer utilization iu logging and man
ufacturlng ore:
1. Itoady markets.
2. ('heap transportation.
3. Character of timber.
4'.   Eittcieut management.
.*..   Proper equipment.
Thv labor coats in handling waste
material are often prohibitive. Tbe
present low price of atumpago makes
it more profitable for tbe manufacturers of many amall wooden articles
to buy lugs, and entire timber tracts
than to manufacture from the whsi
of lumbering operations.
Many by-product plnnts re.|Uire
hih'Ii large inveatiiieuts and an assurance of a long-time supply of material that their erection is possible
only In connection with very large
lumbering operations. The condition
surrounding many small operators
are sucb thht close utilisation la impossible.
Material is saved only as it is valuable. Closeness of timber utilization is in direct proportion to stump
age value. In aome large and favor
ably situated Hasten, lumbering o
peratlons, high timber w.i ■•'■* and
goo I markets for a wide variety ni
products permit the Utilisation of
practically all waste. In many l'n
cll-C Coast operations wbete standing
timber of low valuo Is abundant, and
suwing capacity is in excess of market demand, much wuate ih at present  unavoidable,
(Ivor-production of lumber and oth
er wood products is a prolific cause
of forest wnste Over production re
suits from unlimited competition in
the  exploitation  of  forest   resonrCM,
(educating the consumer to the use
nf grades and sizes ol material now

An Amazing Report
No  more amazing report  has been
issued    from    the    press   than    that
which tells the story of the building
f    the    National    Transcontinental
Railway and ttie squandering of (40,-
000.000  iu  the  process.    This branch
( the Grand Trunk  Pacitlc lino wad
built by the l.aurier Government, Mr
ilding Informed the House that the
total cost  would uot exceed $61 ,.06,-
.00.    Tbe report of tho investigating
-otnmitl.ee showed  that it  bad reach
>d ttie iihiii.lug sum of $_:.4,t'..'.l..'^l.
Today  it  stands saddled with an  in*
.crest charge of ur.,400,000, or $14800
per  dny  and   tbe  general   impression
is that ttie handicap is too great to
cany and that  in consequence the li.
T.I'.  will refuse tu take the line.    If
ho, iin* Oovernment  will huve tn u-
perate it  and tin* country   will   he
saddled   with another   intercolonial,
which will probably take many years
to reach the paying stage.    TllfeSO are
the    burn    factH.      Wben    one   cornea
down  to  details,  tho  report is even
more   amazing,     Kor    instance,   we
read   that   them   was   no   proper   syH-
ti*m of competition in letting tbe con
trncts.    Instead of open tenders with
unrestricted conditions, they were all
so arranged thnt  only a few favored
drrns could  tender,  and  they  appear
to have done so not on the lines of
competition but of combination, thus
eleven firms secured over eight hundred   miles  of  railway  and  re-let to
100    sub contractors.      The    original
firms  clenred   an   immense  profit  for
doing  nothing.    The   11   contractors
socu!"d    $8,8.0,000    for    transferring
tbeir contracts.    Tho  lirm  of  M.   P.
Davis &  Co.   tigered   largely  in  tbia
connection   and   in   the   caBe  of   two
contracts received  tbe sum of $7300-
000 for simply bunding them over. A
practice which if not diBhoneat iB cer
tn inly open to tbe graveat suspicion
was   introduced    in    the    matter   of
"classification."    New terma hitherto
unknown in engineering practice were
coined    to   .'liable contractors to be
paid a higher rate than that agreed
upon, aud to crown  all the committee polntB out that the line through
New i.nmawick    should    have   never
been built; it wns purely a concession
to political clamour;  it parallels the
Intercolonial;  it  has no  business offering;  ''grass is growing along the

Notes on Mining
East Kootenay is one of the most
important mineral sections of BritlBh
Columbia. It Includes the coal
mines of the Crows Nest PasB, the
big silver-lend mines of Kimherley
anh Moyie, lead deposits at Field,
and the gold quartz mines of Wild
Horse and Perry creeks; and there Is
every Indication of IncreaBed prosperity in the mineral resources of thle
dlatrlct during the coming season.
Tho Sullivan group of mines at
Klmherley were the heaviest shippers
during the year 1913, with the St.
Eugene, at Moyie second.
The Frisco group of mines, located
across the lake from Moyie, is worthy
ot more than a passing notice, from
thc (act, that these claims aro situated near the famous Aurora group of
mines, and are supposed to be an extension of the St. Eugene lead across
the lake. The Frisco group is composed of six claims, and are owned
hy Wm. Lawson. On these claims
a large amount ol development woi».
haa boen performed, a drift has been
run nearly four hundred feet, all in
ore, two winzes have been Bin'; on
the vein, and there ls an excellent
showing of silver-lead ore, carrying
high values ln zinc. Several croBa-
cuts have been made acroafl the vein.
and thc Indications are that a new
shipping mine will be added to the
list of Bhlpplng mines ol the district
during the coming season. With reduction works, for the treatment ot
zinciferous ores In the district, the
Frisco group, as well as the Aurora
would become heavy Bhlppcrs, and
ndd vory materially to the mineral
output of the Crnnbrook district.
The KalBer keeps twenty-six automobiles for hlB exclusive UBB. ThiB
may account for the report that a
few of the numerous Imperial castles
are nn the market.

There were Home people who Raid
that this was to lie a fighting seBtnon

begin where they hail left oil, and
that there were troublesome times
in Btore for tbe government. Well
the sestiion will soon be a month ohl,
and so far there 1ms been no signs ol
a row, moreover, it is admitted, and
freely admitted, by Liberal members
themselves, thnt. tho session will
most likely be short and quiet .coming to a peaceful end towards    the

At a speech given at Montreal cm
Saturday night,, riir Wilfrid Laurier

Grazing Policy of the
Hon W. R. Ross
VICTORIA, B.C., P"0b. 88, In re
sponso to a request for bis policy
with respect to grazing matters on
public lands, the Hon Wm. K. RoBfl,
Minister of Lands, snid today;
"I am particularly glad to be usked
that question, for while I do not believe tbat the somewhat natural misunderstanding of the policy of this
Department with respect to grazing
on the public lauds is more than a
superficial and a temporary thing) 1
feel that the iiuicker and more thoroughly that misunderstanding is removed the better for tlic above solution of the whole grazing problem.
"So long as I remain Minister of

promote in e\yry way possible the
legitimate development of the stock
I industry in British Oolumbla, I believe that the administration of the
range on this Province Bhould be
based upon three fundamental principles, which are these;—First, of all
tu protect those now using the range
and. those wbo will later use tho

llogo, Second, to build up by Governmental co-operation a stable and
BUCccBsful stock industry In thr Province; and third, and that Is also

Retail Merchants'
Association
In order to promote and maintain
a better uni_erBta.uiii.jt: between the
merchants of Cranbrouk, ami also between the merchants aud their various customers; with a view to eliminating distrust and suspicion in hu*-
uichh dealings; to disseminate useful
information, and generally to raise
the Btatus of the retail trade, and
attain results hy means of co-operation that eiperieiice haa proved are
not attainable hy individual effort.;
the retail merchants of this city have
by practical unanimity, formed them
selves into an Association, to be
known as the Retail Merchants Association of Cranbrook.
The new organization has been the
subject of careful consideration by
the Merchants for several montnn,
and is affiliated to the Dominion Retail Merchant's ABBoclation ol Canada, and through this channel, to all
such organizations, rapidly increasing in number throughout the Dominion.
It has of course been known round
town   for  some   time   that   Buch
Association    of    the   Merchants  has
been comtemplated, and as is u.iual
where correct information is not read
fly available,  some hasty  and  somewhat    ill-advised    conclusion*,    i *■• e
been reached with regard to the precise objects for which  the organization was being formed; thc statement
being made for example—that it wbb
the intention of the mailers to form
a sort  of  local  ring  or combine a-
round the consumers with a view to
regulating   prices,   and   cenerally   to
play the game of the huge Trust on
a small scale.
That thia view is entirely erroneous will be better proved by actual
experience of the Associations workings tban by any amouut of printed
refutation; but, it may be worth the
while in the interim to asaure the
Cranbrook public that a** lar from
the .AflNocintion making any attempt
to increase the cost of commodities
at the expense of tbe already ovfr-
burdened chancellor of the domestic
excheiiuer, the greater efficiency that
is hoped for as a result nf co opera
tion will produce beneficial results
that comsumer and merchant will
share alike.
It haa long been a crltlsin of living
conditions In Crauhioak that prices
are away in eicess of simlliarly sit
uated towns In the west, nnd it may
perhaps be conceded that in certain
directions, thla criticism is justified.
As, however, there are always a num
ber of points of view to be considered
on nay subject that admits nf debate
nt all, so in this ram th-re are cir
mm. tain*->M to he taken into account
which nre very largely responsible
for the high cost ot  living locally.
Prominent among these circumstnn
ceB is the fact that can be test Hied
to by every merchant in town that
(.ranbrook seems to he the Paradise
of that class of individual known as
tbe "Professional Dead Hent" in pop
ular parlance, whose absorbing passion in life appears to be to avoid
payment of their legal obligations.
These people usually live on a scale
out of all proportion to tbeir Income
and order goodB, preferably by t..e
phone, with a sublime disregard of
the Steadily mounting total of tbeir
bill.
Havmg exhausted tbe possibilities
of one particular ston' In the matter
of credit, tliey pass hi it hei y on to
that BtotVs competitor, nnd proceeding along them* lines, accumulate a
mountain of obligations which they
can hardly meet even if they would.
Finally, having used up the local
supply of generosity, and possessing
a little hard cash, they proceed to
send this elsewhere, complaining loud
1\ meanwhile of the eitnrtmnate
greed of the local retailer whom they
declare, is amassing B huge (ortun.
at the eflpense of the helpless consumer.
Against these misguid-d genu, the
retail Merchants Association propose
to adopt such mutually protective
measures as circumstances may call
for, and in doing so, the best inter
ests of the whole community, con-
Hiimcr nnd retailer alike, will unquestionably be better served. Tbe
Association will ripen offices, probably on Armstrong Avenue, on March
1st, and has appointed Mr. Ourgc
Hougham a* its secretary.
Mr. Hougham will endeavor to discbarge his duties with Cniirtfley to nil
and sundry, nnd counts upon tht) ac
tlvr support of the business men of
the city, whether, at present mem
bers of the association or not, iu his
endeavor to serve the community Interest
