Settlers Coming
Mr. ft. G. Thompson, member of
one of tho leading real estate tlrms
in Winnipeg, nan Hpent several days
in the city this week, sizing up the
capabilities of the district, the soil,
and the climate, on behalf of numer-
clients who arc anxious to settle in
Kast Kootenay.
To say that Mr. Thompson is well
satisfied with what he has seen after
a close inspection and enquiry is
putting the fact very mildly. Although this gentleman haw had a
large Hnd successful experience in thB
colonization of various parts of British Oolumbla, he says, without hesitation that, nowhere in the p(ovlnce
are greater opportunities to he round
by the settler, thnn in the Cranbrook
district, and he is confident that
during the coming season at least
one hundred families will buy land
and settle here.
The only note of discord struck
wan during a drive along the east
side of the prairie where piles of
freshly dumped refuse were encountered, causing a disfiguration of some
of the prettiest scenery we have near
the city, and which he thought showed great negligence on tbo part of the
city, especially as a nuisance ground
was provided only a short distance
ftemarks were also made by Mr.
Thompson with the lack of good
roads to adequately open up—to use
his own expression—the finest fruit
landa in the province: it was, however, pointed ont that only within
the last two years has anything of
Importance been done by the government in this district, but tbat in the
time mentioned, flnd during the coming season, close on a quarter of a
million had been appropriated for
public works in this district, and
that the fall of the present, year
would see most of those difficulties
rem it lied.
She is mine own;
And I as rich in having a jewel
As twenty seas,    if    all    their   Band
were pearl,
The water nectar, and    the    rocks
pure gold.
—Two  Gentlemen  from Verona.
Mr. J. Walker and Miss Helen S.
Harrison were united in the ftoly
hands of matrimony Thursday evening at tbe home of Mr. and Mrs. C.
Stevens. Rev. W. G. Dunham, Methodist Minister officiating. It is much
refrretted that immediately on the
eve of the wedding news should be
received by the bride that her father
lay very sick, and that her presence
was desired at her home in Toronto-
Both of the parties are very popular tn Cranbrook and the wishes arc
many tbat they may enjoy tbeir future and that lt he tilled with good
health and pros|>erlty. It is tt pleasure to chronicle the marriage of such
a worthy young couple and this paper wafts to them (ts warmest congratulations.
Menace to Frank
The report of the royal commission appointed hy the federal government to investigate into the stability of Turlc mountain whlcb has for
years heen considered a menace to
the town of Frank, hns at last heen
published nnd the results nre (Ar
from reassuring to the citizens of
the  little  mountain   colliery  town.
The report is to the effort bhat cun-
tinuod mining operations inside Turtle mountain are making more and
more Imminent the danger of a pepe-
tltlon of the disaster which overtook
tbe town of Frank in 1903 when Poetically the larger portion of the
whole town was wiped out hy n landslide and scores perished.
In spite of the commissioners findings tbo people of Frank have not become unduly excited and, on account
of the pecuniary loss entailed, It is
expected that no one will think of
moving until the Dominion authorities step tn nnd order that the town
be removed. An outstanding paragraph of the report Ib as follows:
"Whatever the report of this or
other commissions, the town can never be nn important one on its present site, Hlnce there will nlways ro-
main the dread of another calamitous slide like tbnt of 1903. In suite
of undoubted individual hardship
caused by the abandonment of the
present Bite, tbo town on a new and
safe site might prosper nn never before. The townsite Ahould be abandoned.
Railway Projected
Another Important telegraphic announcement from Winnipeg ia that
Mr. 0. J. Bury, vice-president of tbe
C.F.R., stated to a deputatln of
Manitobans, headed by Premier Roh-
lin, that his company would shortly
spend ¥60,000,000 on an entirely new
line of railway from the prairie to
tbe coast. He stated that such a
line was necessary, owing to the congested state of the present freight
lines, and also in view of the great
possibilities of the future necessitated
by the shipment of grain to the Pacific and tbe opening of the Panama
Canal. Things are moving so rapidly in tbe West these days that one
can.hardly keep pace with them. And
nothing tends more effectively to
mark the flight of time and the
changed conditions of the country
than that the very railway company
which thirty years ago was struggling
to raise a few million dollars to
complete a single track to the coast,
should now make nothing of the
raising of $60,000,000 for a second
line, and that the announcement
should hardy cause ft thrill of interest. The growth of the West is "the
true romance" of the twentieth century. It is a new world that ts opening up, a world that is absorbing
hundreds of millions for public works
and building thousands of miles of
railways where only a few years ago
it was declared that a railway would
never pay for axle grease. Apart from
the general reflections which' may occur to any one familiar with conditions wost of Winnipeg there will
with this important announcement
come a very definite idea of what
another C.P.R. transcontinental line
will mean. It means inevitable reaching the coast by way of Butte inlet, and as inevitably connection
with the E. & N. to Victoria by an
all-rail route across Seymour Narrows. Tndeed, It is not too much to
suggest tbat tho announcement of
tbe C.P.R. will be the determining
factor in the settlement of the Seymour Narrows question. A bridge
at thnt point was always inevitable
it was not until six months ago that
ft looked to be within range of the
near future: today it appears imminent. In this connection we may
look forward to the rapid completion
of The Kootenay Central, and the
extension of the Crow line to Nelson,
thus welding two other links In the
Pacific coast lines to the coast.
Elected by Acclamation

Leisurely walking down Baker
Street on Thursday afternoon, Messru
D. J. Elmer, and T. D. Caven, had
their attention drawn to the fact
that it was close to the time for

Returning Officer J. A. Arnold and
several prominent citizens come out
on the verandah and make the declaration of the persons nominated.
However, ay Mr. Caven was declared

cheer burst from the lips of those

Premier  McBride  Outlines
His Progressive Policy^
Conservative  Convention
at Cranbrook
Bright Flashes from Premier McBride's Speech
A deflclt ol over 11,000,000 wc faced in 1SIM Ib today 0 aurplua ol over
•8,000,000 Id gold.
Now, within the last two yearn thing" have moved even more quickly
than we expected them to dn at the time of our Hrat contract with the
Canadian Northern system.
There is an explanation for this, and it lies in the lact tbat tbe ex
perts hope that the Panama canal will be finished within the neit 18
months. 1 think, I may .safely venture the statement that never in the
history ol the world has there been such a commercial revolution as
that which is bound to take place upon the completion ol thla most marvelous undertaking.
After serious consideration nnd careful investigation this government
decided to enter upon a course which would give us a more finished state
ol affairs as far as our railway lines were concerned. We were satisfied
that if we lost even 12 months in this respect, tbat 12 months lost now
at any rate so far as tbe Panama canal situation la concerned, might
not be overtaken in the next 25 years.
The end is not yet, and it is tbe intention ol tbegovernment ol the day
just as quickly as is consistent with tbe public interest and the plans of
tbe railway company, to Introduce this Canadian Northern competitive
system into the Kootenays as well as the Okanagan, This I was able to
say because of mnny conferences with Sir William Mackenzie and Sir
Donald Mnnn, wherein extensions of their systems Into the Kootenay
country were the subject of serious discussion. They seem to hold tbe
view, which this government hns always advanced, that In tbe Kootenay
country you are only in the commencement of things.
And when I speak ol the development ol Kootenay and what she is capable of In the near future, and how this will Justify the coming of a Competitive railway system, I would like you to believe that in this order ot
things you must never put too low down In your book of accounts the
great value to you of your climate and of your scenery.
Now 300 miles of the Canadian Northern nnd 450 miles of the Pacific &
Oreat Eastern are to receive a guarantee of '35,000 a mile trom tbe government, In return Inr which the people ol British Columbia will have a
first mortgage on the roads; In return fnr whlcb white labor exclusively
win be employed by them nnl in return Inr which as well the people ol
British Columbia will control freight and passenger rates.
The Introduction there nl tho C.P.R. standard of service will put Ka«-
lo back nn the map, and back to stay.
Just as aoon na It la found that the bridge can be built tor a fair cost
and that It Is In the public Interest in line with our record all over British Columbia, we will build the bridge, not aa a matter of favor but a*
a matter of duty.
Bright Flashes from Attorney Bowser's Speech
"By our works shall you know us; you have Keen what we have done ln
the nine years that we have been charged with the administration of thla
country, and on that record we expect to receive your assistance and support In this campaign."
In 1903 the expenditure on public works was 1743,000. This year it ta
In 19C3 the total amount expended for all purposes was •3,500,000—tbe
total this year, 1912, has reached the very large amount ol '16,22.5,000. In
1903 our revenue was only l2,OM,000,ln 1911 our last fiscal year, only eligbtj
years later, it has increased to '10,492,000.
It Is true the Liberal party met In Vancouver a few days ago in solemn
conclave and brought forth what might be termed a platform, or what I
termed the other night a crazy quilt platform. It-has all sorts of planks,
there was not a man in the meetingwho had a Ind of any sort but it was
Introduced Into that platform.
It le fearfully and wonderfully made; it passes all understanding; there
It nothing like it In heaven above, or earth beneath, or in the waters under the earth. It Is the greatest exhibition ol rainbow chasing that was
ever known In public life; every rainbow that could be gathered in was put
Into this platform.
Where has that party been for the last 16 years when Hir Wilfrid Lcur-
ler was at Ottawa, with regard to thnt question? They are the very people who made oriental immigration into this country possible. Sir Wilfrid Laurier is the very man who by ratltylng the treaty with Japan allowing the Immigration ol Japanese made it possible for our fisheries to
he taken away from the white fishermen and to come under tho practically exclusive control ol the Japanese.Two nr three times at Victoria we
passed the Natal act, and on all those occasions the whole weight and
power of the federal government was thrown against the enforcement of
that act by the local authorities.
We have decided to Increase tbe Income tax exemption and the abolition
of the poll tax will lie one ol the llrat thinga we shall undertake in next
year's legislation. 	
Notes of the Meeting
Hon. Richard McBride, premier of
British Columbia. Hon. W. J. Bowser, attaorney-general, and Mr. Thos.
D. Caven, elected on Thursday by
acclamation, as member of the provincial legislature, addressed a large
audience at the Auditorium on Wednesday evening.
Mr. T. T. McVittie, of Fort Steele
was chairman; and on the platform
with the legislative party, Mr. Otis
Staple* of Wycliffe, and Judge Ryan
of Cranbrook.
The first speaker was Mayor A. O.
Bowness who cordially welcomed the
ministerial Party to Oranbrook. He
said: "That while there might be a
diversity of opinions, politically,
that, it gave him great pleasure In
extending to Premier McBrlde, and
Mr. Bowser, a hearty welcome to tho
city of Cranhrook.
Mr. Thoma» Caven, the newly elected member for Cranbrook waa the
next speaker, nnd said: "Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen. It is
Indeed „ pleasure to nee such a large
audience assembled to welcome and
hear the Hon. Premier, and Mr. Bowser, define the railway policy of the
government. A policy that is meeting the approval of the electorate of
the entire province. He referred to
the benefits to be derived from tlu
building of transcontinental railways
through the province, their bearing
on the immediate settlement and tlic
future prosperity of British Columbia; that white labor, und standard
wage was a predominating feature of
these railway contracts, He nlso referred to the large appropriations
granted by the government for public Improvements nnd school purposes
for and in Cranhrook district. That
if he was returned he would do his
utmost to further the best interest
of the Cranbrook district.
Mr. Otis Staples, of Wycllfte was
the next speaker, he said: "One thing
that I have always been in favor of
waa a strict business government,
such as has been given by the McBride administration. I also approve
of the railway policy of Mr. McBrlde
also of the expenditures now being
made by tbe government to develope
and settle up this province, for I have
always found that an expenditure of
large sums, became an asset, and
created a wealth three times as large
as the sum expended. That every
settler coming into this province
should realize conditions, pnd come
prepared to l>e satisfied with present
conditions, and determined to make
a permanent home wherever he might
Hon. Mr. McBride was Introduced
by the chairman. He was received
with considerable applause, and said:
"Tbat he was pleased to be again
in CrnnorooK where he had many
friends, and that the welcome that
he had received indicated thnt he had
still retained the friendship of
a large number of the electorate. He
congratulated tbe citizens of Cranbrook on their selection of Mr. Bowness as Mayor, that as a business
mnn, he might he relied upon to conduct municipal business is a most
progressive manner, nnd for the best
interests of the city.
"That ho had received a wire today
that indicated that in a majority of
the ridings there would be no content
"He stated that his mission here,
tonight, was to say something in regard to the railway policy of the
present government, which was nlso
an explanation of why the govern
ment was appealing to the electorate
It wns a little more than two years
ago since the government submitted
itself for endorsation to the electors,
and that now he wns appenling to
the most exacting critics, for some
demonstration of the confidence the
Government has, thnt. it hnd the support of the people, nnd proof that we
have fnlth In the cause we advocate.
"I feel now that as we submit
another instalment of our railway
policy to the people of thia country,
we may feel quite satisfied in the
light of past experience that we shall
be returned to the treasury benches
"You know the story of our early
experience, a depleted treasury, and
lu nine years we have turned a deficit Into a surplus, and the afiairs of
province to a stability. The government of tbe day has brought order
out of chaos, has brought good business and legitimate commerce out of
insolvency and stagnation, nud has
succeeded in restoring British Columbia to a flnanccial position which is
unequalled by any otber section of

canal, its completion, and its conncc

and extensions of the O.P.R were ox
plained satisfactory to his hearers.

The worst tragedies are not enac-
ed on stage, but in homes. The divorce courts indicate that. Poverty
tragedies in the Httle street back of
where some actors suffer nobly rather tban beg. Tragedies in tbe big
house on the "avenue" gilded prison
houses for women, infernos for men,
chambers of borrows for children.
Breaking hearts, withering hopes,
maddening brains, the crowd goes
screaming by. No. all the tragedies
ia not back in tbe little stceet. But
"when poverty conies in at the door"
doesn't love fly out the window?" No
we've seen too many lovers in overalls and sweethearts in gingham
aprons to believe tbat. When we
write a book of fables tbe first one
will begin: Once upon a time there
waa a house of poverty. But when
the wolf came to the door he turned
away for he heard them laughing and
singing". Home doesn't consist in
things, but of hearts. A woman in
a mngnitlcieut palace in Nebraskr
^ald to us." The happiest days of my
life were spent in a sod house ten
miles out yonder on the prairie."

Wo have seen a picture by HarriF
entitled, "No More Home?" We can't
forget it. Pot tbe lirst time tho
young husband staggers into that
rich home intoxicated. And it is a
rich homo; notice the draperies, thu
pictures, tbo furnishings', Tho bady's
cribs, which the young mother prays
may become its casket, rocks to sloop
innocence. A thousand tilings are
Worse than death. The husband
wears a flushing diamond, but lacks
diamond of character. See the rosea
drooping [rom tho vase, withering
dying. See the roses dropping from
the wife's heart, withering, dying.
Tbe closed piano—music is dead, Tbe
light light is going out, "No more
home." God help those who live in
homeless houses houses where a
husband gives black looks and vile
oaths; where it woman's sarcastic and
nagging tongue drives a man to
drink quicker than iraake bite; where
a laay son rives abuse and heartbreak instead of gratitude; where a
shallow, thankless daughter believed
Id ber chief end and aim in life to
dress swell aiul marry a bank account and an auto, as though happiness always traveled in a touring
car! Deliver us from such a home!
Close tt up quick! Put up tho sign
"House for sale.'' Better sit on a
.stump of a tree out In tbe woods
with an umbrella over your bead and
call that home.

HOTEL g^"brook'
(By J. B. Taylor.)
Mr. Tuck has been staying In Rlko
(or a few days.
Government Agent B. F. Alexander of Fernle was at Rlko last week
on official business.
A special meeting of tbe Blko Water Power committee was held lost
week. Plenty of power, but no signs
of water.
A somewhat alarming (ire occurred
tn the house occupied by Mrs. Tod-
hunter on Thursday afternoon. The
fire brigade responded, and quickly
subdued the flames, the damage was
A well attended Conservative meeting was held on Tuesday Sth Inst., In
order to elect delegates for the Fernle convention. Messrs. J. A. Agnew, and Chas. KUngensmith will go
to the coal city as delegates.
Mayor Bleasdell, of Fernie, who
has been appointed as returning officer (or the Fernle riding was in Rlko
lost week, and was quite busy posting proclamations and arranging for
the different polling precincts.
Mr. and Mrs. Lester of Flagstone,
osaed through Rlko on their way
to Cranbrook last week, where they
are to reside. Mrs. Lister is a musical lady being an expert violin player, and handles the piano with skill.
She singe sweetly, and was much In
demand (or social, etc, In Flag-
atone. She is sure to become very
popular in Cranbrook.
A smoking concert was held at
Waldo on Saturday last under the
auspices of the Waldo Conservative
association; there wsre over two
hundred present. Mr. Beattie president of the association was chairman. Hon. W. R. Ross, Minister ot
Lands, being the principal guest and
speaker. Rlko was represented by
Messrs. J. M. Agnew, B. Kerr, and
T. Foiaiey. It wan an interesting
meeting, excellent speeches, good
music, and cigars, and a lot nf jolly
good fellows well met.
Sometime ago through the columns
of the Klk River Times I described a
visit to deserted Morrlssey. That
in the summer time, when beauty of nature excelled. I hod occas
sion to visit the village again this
week. A single track led through the
snow to the one occupied house.
Bleokneea and deeertion were complete, and one was reminded of the
stories they have heard of the snow
clad plains of Siberia. It is reported
however, that Morrissey will undergo
considerable change soon. Let
hope (rom tbe ruins wilt spring up a
prosperous townsite.
This column is becoming a    source
ol general information.   Olnd to   be
able to answer a correspondent  this
week again. "Your   anawer in     last
