Agricultural Fair
The preparations made this year by
the officers ol th_ Association have
been equally -.e good „s that ol any
previous year. The only, regret that
may be chronlcleb again at this
year's exhibition was tho unresponsive way it was attended.
Not nearly so many fruits and
vegetable eihlbits were made as in
previous years, hut wbat, was on
public view retained the excellent
duality always attending, eihlbits
shown in Cranbrook.
On Thursday. Thos. Caven, M.M.P.
Hor Cranbrook, formally opened the
big Agricultural Fair, and) in «, very
appropriate speech bld --elcome to
all in attendance; especially to those
from other parts of the district was
this, welcome accorded.
Mr. Caven in bis remarks eald
that great credit should be given to
Mr. McClure, tbe presdent of the
Agricultural Assoclat on, for the Immense amount 0| work that hod
been dona to make the Fair such a
success. Me had been colled upon
to open the- Fair on accovnt o! the
absence from the city dt Mayor
Bonness. Cranbrook as » city, be
said, was progressing and tbat lu
tbe near future several Important
newlndustries wore scheduled, to como
to tho city. Among these was a
Cold Storao" and Abattoir plant
which would reejuire an expenditure
of from $75,000 ta $125,000. All
that the promoters would require Is
that the city remit the taneo ond
furnish a supply ol water lor a period ol 6 or 6 years. K
Mr. Caven then introduced Mr Mc
Mr. McCBtire in a few short re
marks said he was pleased to see
such a large crowd In attendance
and bopedl they would find the exhibits as a whole to bc much super-
lor to those ol last year, and he
trusted thnt Fair would lie a nnan
clal  success.
During the two days Fair, the
city bund was in attindnnce and
rendered a musical programme during the afternoon.
In the main bulld'n? Mr. Ira R
Manning* had an excellent booth set
aside to serve refreshments In and
which the ladles in particular found
very refreshing.
Oeo. PoweU exhibited several Sin
ger   tawing   machines,   one oi which,

Thc Cranbroo't Florists display ol
Home Grown flowers' was one that
attracted considerable attention
Thle showing was argumcnted con*
slderablf by the work done by Mr.
Jonas Ftelilin;*:, late of Newcastle,
England, who is now employed by
the Hanson brlckyatd.
Messrs. Olll and Sainsbury had on
view an excellent exhibit of honey.
Tho Rest Room,, provided by the

interest in thc lair nnd had a seperate booth set apart lor themselves
which drew the attention of all ladles In thnt section. The work, exhibited by these ladles' surpassed any
neeJlework or croquet work ever
shown Iri cranhrook,
11 p-stnlrs various school exhibits
and ladles work was shown and this
could almost bc said to be the ladles
section of tbe Fair.

iof It could be easily , obtained, rap-
plies rost less, tho Coast mill o..n rs
havf| the world for „ market, we are
restricted lo one market—the nearby
prairies, which ha'e hitherto ben
ta'ito Irom us by tho Importations
of American ItimlxT which exc,,eded
300,000.000 feet last year; that Is to
say, it Huwli'd nbout ono third of
the consumption of lumber di our
otalyt available market, consequtotly
knocked the bottom out ol prices
and we had to meet a4 ruinous com-
petltlon, making it absolutely Impossible fot a majority of the mill a
to produce und sell goods at a proit
and this is now followed by financial
stringency never before experienced
in the West.
Therefore, we consider that although the Government was entitled
to a greater revenue the present time
w_ inoprortune to Impose addition
al burd.n, oni an a rondy op.reseid
industry, which was the only one left
in Canada without protection. Thnt
whilst we roco.ni-.,1 the dl,Uculti,s

It is further tho sense of this
meeting thnt the. Honorable Minister
ot Lands iw Hiked to submit to thc
oflices of the Mountain, Lumber Manufacturers' Assoc atlon, a draft ol
proposed legislation before such* a-
nn—Inn-tit is submitted to the legislature.
The Minister, In acknowledging
theso recommendations *oi_ted out
thnt it is by uo means the Intention
of th*> government to assess taxation on an indusery which would seriously affect its existence. He never
theless gave weight to hts contention
lhat additional revenue1 must be provided, and askftd lor suggestions as
to how this might be brought about
without Increasing too much the burden now'(>n the shoulders of tbe lumbermen.
Mr. Chester Staples presented some
very interetiing figure!-, comparing
the Poyte I.U6 and the B.C. Mule,
showing how difficult It would be
for operators to saw out the amount
of lumber scaled ou the B.C. Hule.
Mr. Staples illustrated that this difference favors small logs in the Doyl«
Rule, up to 21" in diameter, and lav
ore large logs above 21': in diameter
in tbe B.C. Rule.   As the largest cut. -
in   the   Interior consists of logs be- j b*"'*'*'n8 "P'1*. " toniS"-""-*.    ""■■"*'>•
tween   12" and 16" In diamctsr, the j *-htt) rouhl, not htand^ It. til
Injustice of apiKy ng the B.C. RuleB
to logs In the Interior is very apparent.
Mr. Lund then gave a review of
existing conditions In the lumber In-' up again.
dustryl He asserted that lumbermen ln reply Mr. Butts snid "Certain-
fullyl appreciated the necessity for ly not." lt wotd he a mere tajn*
creating additional revenue but point telle,.and pointed out that over pro

Lund asserted that in the past' the the over production- "Irom v, h;ch the

He relerred to the vast lumber producing capacity ol Canadian Mills,
such aa tbe Coast, Mountains, Spruce
and Pine, the limited market lor
this product, und the importations of
lumber from the t'Otted States an
nually—all ol whlrh bave been important factors in determining the
net prices of lumber products, Mr
Lund gave considerable weight to
stability In royalty and rental charges, as financial assistance Is difficult to secure it nny doubt exists as
to what the Government's intentions
may bt tor tbo future. In conclusion Mr. Lund states that the*sonly
loir and «.uita<>.e manner for the.assessment of nl" taxes is oni th* actual value ol tbe product to* be, taxed,
and endorsed tho resolution fully,
recommending that royalty be assess
ed on a percentage basts of tba actual selling prlc. ot lumber.
Mr. C. II. McNab neit suggested
that tbe percentage basis ol taxation
Is most desirable, and submitted
tbat a' base of M4.00 might be taken
to constitute u mln mum sale price
for assessment purposes.
Mr. K W. Adolph then pointed out
th* desirability of assessing royalty
on u percentage basis, Bnd submitted
some very Interesting Ugure. as to
prices obtained In ini'urlo.
Mr. M. King. Mr. I), tl. Me. bail,
Mr. H. N. Herein and Mr. Malcolm
Melniic all agreed' with these con
Mr. A. K. Watts called th , atten
tion nf ths Hon. Minister to tbe
fact that lumbermen of tbe Interior
were for once unanimously of the
same opinion, nnd that Is, that) tbe
Government should share in their

Blty; lor that reason it was suggested that tbe loyalty payable to tbe
Government should be based on tbe
actual receipts or on the. total value
nf the lumber shipped. This would
be equitable tn nil parties concerned.
The Government would In times ol
protpcrlty have the revenue n"arly
doubled from the timber manufuctutors. The tun. per cent mentioned
was not nn arbitrary euggeet'on,

(eet for their lumber, and even ut
tbe low prices ruling, very little business could be obtained. And what
little business waa done nothing but

tbe future proBpects for thn lumber
trade were, and how the lumbermen

the Covernment i n tor the suggested
method of roll... tlm- royalty if tba

as at present.
In reply Mr. Watts stated thnt no
doubt the lumber trade was at Its
lowest ebb. The turn of ths tide
must soon take place, or the lumber
business In tbe Interior would soon
be extinct, „nH pointed nut tbat owing to the fact that some of the big
concerns wer' already practically out

suggested method fnr „ period of five,

doubt the lumbermen after enumeration would welcome tbo trial, I Tbat
If adopted It would reduce the great

as the army ol scalers and olher officials could he dispensed with, and
the Government coti'd safely rest ns

Is Your Home a
"Financial Success"
The day-by-day problem ot "living within
the income" is the despair of some housewives
—and a simple problem of good management
with others.
The amount of the income does not always
determine whether the problem shall be solved
or not—for family "needs" have a way of adjusting themselves to family resources.
It is usually a question of whether the housewife has "a head for business," or whether she
considers certain usual expenses inevitable.
It is a fortunate household whose "buyer"
makes a business matter of it—buying wisely,
opportunely, with a real knowledge of values,
and an alert interest in the advertisements of
the stores, which afford many opportunities for
real economies.
When the buying for a household is entrusted to such a woman, that home will be "a
financial success!"
Why own a car that you yourself cannot
drive—and miss all the real fun of the
going? There is health and joy-giving
relaxation in Ford driving—because of
the simplicity of the Ford mechanism—
and the consequent ease of its control.
Think what these prices mean—for the car

A Great Record
The I Borden Qoveninient has been
In power for nearly two years, and
lt can look back on! a number ot
things well done in the interests of
tha Can-dian people. The farmers
have reason to thank the administration, which directly aided thom by
the appropriations of mill ons towards fostering the science ol agriculture. Tho days of Sidney FUher
with his theoretical, philandering arc
over, Instead, th.'re Is help given
in the diroct'on lt ls needed most.
Notwithstanding tho fact that, tho
Senate at' the bidding of Laurier,
twice destroyed thel hill for the improvement of high wnyB, go0d roads
are bound to come, and come by the
efforts of the present government to
glvo to the-, peoplo of tho rural 3ls-
trlctB ths much desired boen. Tho
Senate cannot forever block legislation in tbo interests of the poople as
a whole. Then tho government can
look hack upon ita efforts to eave
tno self respect of tho people bv aiding1 the motherland in the matter of
naval defence, with a feeling dl confidence   that   in   Ita   naval1   bill   It
sought to give thnt assistance in the
mams. mapped out hy the Britiah
Admiralty as being ol the greatest
usefulness. No amount of specious
reasoning ._ tho part of Laurier and
hla friends een disguise the fact
that the people of this dominion,
aro not only ready, but anxious to
ploy the part of manliness, instead
of childishness. Tbe administration
of the various departments of the
public service has been along snfe
and sane lines. The wolfare of thc
people has1 boon the aim of the Pro-
mier and his colleagues, and all is
Thc long expected railway from
Golden to Fort Steele' will he completed next year, and the high ernde
ores ol tho upper Columbia and Ko0
tenay valleys will then be within
roach of a market and' smelters, and
the neceesary mining maeblnery being obtainable, thel prospector and
miner can go ahead and develop
their properties.
in these days when the question of
nationality ls so highly prized, lt
would be well if some definition
coald be mnde af wbat constitutes
tbe perogative of any poison saying
he ls a Canadian, an' Australian, a
Now ZcalanJer or an integral part ol
any particular country. We ere only
discussing this In Its broadest sense
for-j. e know that in different nations
there are different laws relating to
citizenship. But In the Brltleh Empire, where so many parts of lt are
peopled by immigrants trom other
parts, tho question very olten It! a
perplexing one. In this Dominion
for instance there are thousands of
peoplo who proclaim their nationall
ty as thnt of the country of their
birth, while there are thousand, ot
oth rs who though bom elsewhere,
nre only too glad to call themselves
Canadians. As long as tbey are loyal citizens thc,question is only one of
viewpoint hut at the same time It Is
one thnt sometimes gives rise to ae-
rlmon o-.ih discussion and for this ron
son might well be moie clearly defined. Homottmes n person calls tbo
• and ot his futhsrs hla nation, aome
times the country of his birth; others arc perfectly willing to be called
after tho cmntry „! their adoption.
In South America un Englishman always remain, na Englishman, but
very often wben be comes to. Canada
or goes to Australia he la proud to
call himself after the new land',
A discussion on this subject gives
rise to the thought of tbe slight
basis upon which tho names ol great
nations had their origin. Wet, read In
a volume called "Words and Places"
that the nume England was taken
fiom the Angles who only colonized
a small portion ot the country. In
the case of Scotland, tbe Angles, tbo
Norwegians' and the Cymric Celts
soverally constituted a larger element than the Scots, yet the latter,
a conquering Irish Sept, uk.ch appears to have actually colonized only
a portion of Argyle, has succeededlln
bestowing Its nume upon tbe whole
country. Then again, .ranee taaes
Its name from the Franks, a small
German tril.es which effected a very
Imperfect colonization 0f a portion
of central France. Here nre a tew
notable instances which go to show
that .hanee. . ire was not' very far
astray when he deprecated the importance utta bed to, names. According
to Green, the historian, tbs origin
of Kn -land was slniplyi the lact that
Englishmen dwelt in tbe land before
thc Danes and th (Ir word Angei (a
meadow) happened to be thought M
as a name for the rouotry. Of all
tbo names we know e_ that whloh
seems to inosil clearly define the people who Inhabit It la tbe United
States. All other countries,' as far
as iloscrlhlng any distinctive nntl.n
ullty nre misnamed—Colonist.

Strikes at White Slave
The work of Hon. C. J. Doherty,
Minister of Justice, in his framing
ot the, amendments tn the criminal
code for the protection ot women
and for the suppression ot white
Blavery is receiving thc widespread
approval n» aR moral reformers
throughout the Dominion. Tho new
amendments have Just gone into
lorn, and, tke new sections dealing
with the suppression of white slavery
are being commended. Sue hi a well-
known moral reform worker as Rev.
Dr. J. (1. shearer, secretary e_ the
Dominion Social Mornl Reform Coun
ell says that tha amendments are
the best that appear on the statute
hooka eil any country.
They were more stringent that' the
British law ol 1913 or the United
StatenJ Federal Laws. "When the
proposed amendments were drawn,"
said Dr. Shenrer, "we had the Im
penal law nnd tho Mann White
SluveAct before uo, and I nm (Jlad to
say that the* Government has ineor
located in the revision the at rouges 1 features ot the, two."
A most sweeping change refers* to
men found in disorderly houses.
Such men wiU be considered frequen
ters unless they can Justify tbelr
presence there. Deserting husbands
Willi be liable to criminal prosecution Instead ot civil action, and vol
'Doesn't thai exquisite muaie
matte one think of divine thing*,
Mias Ethel?1'
"Yes. I can't ncip thinking of a
hat I taw to-day that wat tunplj-
unteer or amateur detective operation wlll be stopped. Another section wlll permit the puniahment ol
men who have lived by tbe wb.te
slave traffic and who have gone tree
wbetr the women have been Imprisoned.
There might)have been other amend
tnenta passed had It not bcen for
the action of the, Senate. An amend
ment making employers cr.mlut.lly
liable for offences against their wo
men employees was rejected by tbe
Senate., At pris-nt the law na'ies
employers liable for offences against
girls under 21 yea's ;'ln any shop,
workshop, store, mill or factory."
That amendment was rejected bv the
Senate. "W. cannot understand tbe
Senate's action," remarked Mr.
Shearer, "and tne Soc'al Service
Council lu about ready to Join, tbs
Oovetnment In n movement for the
abolition of the Senate."
Wives will he better guarded from
desertion by their husbands under
the new amendments. It Is now
only necessary to prove thnt a wife
and children are In necettltous circumstances to secure conviction
against the husband.
It Is comforling tot those desirous
that! a young nation sho.ld lie built
upon strong f»* ml .tions, to act
strong measures of moral reform
liana inlo the statute books. It Is n
t'gn dl a healthy mtnd.*d govern
ment and' people.
