Opening of Parliament
Speech from Throne
OTTAWA, Jan. 15.—The actual
sitting of the House of Commons
this afternoon did not. consume 20
minutes before going over to the
senate chamber to hear the speech
from the throne. Speaker Sproule
reported the changes in the House
during the year consequent upon the
death of members and the election
of their successors. After returning trom the Senate chamber the
commons were given the opportunity
of meeting their new Colleagues
whose formal introduction was prac
tically the only feature of the afternoon. Hon. Arthur Meighn, the new
solicitor-general, was the tirst to bc
introduced, and waB escorted by Hon
Robert RogerB and Hon. Dr. Roche.
Iir. A. H. Hannah, of Lannark, followed, being sponsored by Hon. W.
T. White and Hon. Dr. Reid. Hon.
H. P. McLeod, who succeeds O. S.
Crockett as momher for York, N. B.
was introduced by JameB Morris,
the new member for Chateauguay.

demonstration from the Conserva-
tives. A couple of minutes Inter
the Liberals responded with n counter demonstration when Mr. Trims,
the victor in the South Bruce contest waB brought In.
A number of formal motions were
introduced by Hon. Robert Rogers
and adopted.

Lavalee of Bellechase. *.
Tbe attendance of members on both
sides was fair for an opening day.
Owing to inclement weather the
crowd which watched tho arrival of
Mb royal highness and his escort at
3 o'clock was not ns large as usual.
It dispersed soon after hiH royal
highness entered the Senate chamber. Tbere thu scene was quite as
brilliant as usual. Tbe attendance
of society people on thc Iloor of the
house being limited only by the ac-
(ommodation, the galleries were
crowded. There was the un mil array of brilliant forms to the right
und left of the throne, the Premier

cupying the position of honor.
After the house adjourned, Speaker

oi expressing to you all my deepest
of gratitude for the comfort and support that were afforded us at the
timo of the serious illness of* the
Duchess of Connaught hy the numerous messages of sympathy which
were received from Canada and by
the knowledge that the hearts of so
many friends were with us during
our dark days. I cannot regard
tlmt my enforced absence made it impossible for me to fully exercise the
duties of my high office during a
considerable portion of last year. It
gives me great pleasure to be able
to congratulate you upon the remark
able expansion of Canada's trade
with other countries in the past fiscal year, during which our total
trade far exceeded that of any preceding year.

series of prosperous years, and although at tho present moment business is slightly restricted by the financial stringency which prevails
throughout the world. I feel convinced that this condition wlll he

work on the National Transcontinental railway has been advanced in the

progress has been made in bringing
that important project nearer to

The "Burden" of Thirty
As a matter of fact the total duty
collected upon the importation of all
food-stuffs, for the year when divided
among the country's population, a-
mounted to about thirty cents per
head—and thiB is the "terrible food
tax" that the liberals wouldhave us
"groan" under in order to bolster
up their case for "Free Food."
In Great Britain where they .have
a so-oafled "free-tirade" tariff, the
duty collected on food-stuffs last
year amounted to nearly $350,000,000
or nearly eight dollars for every
man, woman and child in the united
Let the Canadian consumer ponder
over these few facts, and aa he reflects upon this "food-tax" mythology of Liberalism, he will bc inclined
to groan—not for the consumer but
for the fatuity of the Liberal party
in accepting such a fallacy.

20th YEAR
CRANBROOK, B  C,  JANUARY 17th, 1914
Sir John A. Macdonald—"A British subject I  was born,    a    British
subject I will die."
• •   •   •
Sir Wilfrid  Laurier—"The goal of
my ambition is thc Independence of

to utilize the output of the cement

Since the defeat of reciprocity Sir
Wilfrid  Laurier  has  become  a  mere
niljunct  to the Liberal party.
• •   •   •
The continued mild weather and
dearth of snow sufficient to accommo
date good sleighing in the Cranbrook district has caused much apprehension among the business men
lest the great amount of timber that
that has been cut during the past
few months may not reach the mills
until the roads settle in the early
summer. On Thursday the snow
commenced falling, and if sufficient
falls, the logs can be moved In about
six or eight weeks.
• *   •   •
Settlers in tbe outlying districts
in tihai. west bave welcomed the chbrige
in the administration of the public
domain which took place on the advent of the Conservative administration. Under the Laurier government
Dominion land agencies were few and
homestead inspectors without power
to assist settlers but with power t.i
coerce. Going to the land offices fre
quently entailed Journeys of great
length, hardship and inconvenience.
Under the administration of the depnrtment of the interior by Robert
Rogers and Hun. Dr. Roche many
new Dominion Intuit.' agencies and
sub-agencies were created bringing
thom nearer tbe settler.
• t • *
Another important change in this
department has still further aided
the settler; homestead inspectors are
empowered in outlying districts to
take applications for patents. This
relieves the settler from the incon
venience and expanse of making a
long trip and taking his witnesses
witb him. Frequently the expense
was beyond the means of the settler.
The present Government sends thc
officials to tbe settler to relieve the
settler of expense, such a change can
not but *be welcomed by the western
Cranbrook Poultry and Pet
Stock Association
Annual Meeting
The Annual Meeting of the Cran
brook Poultry and Pet Stock Asso
elation was held in the Old Club
room on January 12th, with Vice-
President Webb in tbe chair, and af.
ter the usual business was transacted the different reports were read
showing the association to be ln a
prosperous condition and that a lot
of excellent work had been accomplished during thc past year in furthering tbe poultry interests and demonstrating beyond doubt that Cran
brook aiifl vicinity are most admirably adapted for the raising of poultry both for exhibition and utility
purposes, and we went on to show
that all that is nece-snry to further
advance the interest of all breeders
is more co-operation by both
large and small and this can easily
be accomplished by joining the association and thus assist membership and enabling tbem to bring in
cai'B of feed more frequently for distribution among the members.
Tbe following officers were elected
for 1914.:-
Hon. Pres.—W. H.  Santo,
Hon.Vicc-pres—A. M. Betattie,
Pres.—A. B. Smith
Vice-pres.—H, H.  Slator
Sec-treaB.—W.  W. McGregor
Directors-T.   S.  Gill.  W.  Harvey,
C. R. Sbeppard, A. H. Piggott.
At a call from tbe president the
executive of the association met an
January 6th, for tbe purpose of outlining the year's work and several
good suggestions were brought forward nnd discussed. Papers of interest are to bc prepared and read at
each meeting. Judging of different
classes where small prizes will be n-
wnrded will also ABBlst Ub in creating local Interest. There is also a
scheme for creating interest among
the young people in this line ns the
association purpose giving free eggs
Irom thorough-bred stock*\o young
folks under Ifi, tne batch to be shown
at tho Fall Fair show when Interesting rash  prizes  will  be given.
White Wyandottes (1913 batch) will
bo scored at next regular meeting,
February Bth, wben prl«M will be
given for best mule and female, ho
bring aloug your hirdH nnd uhhIiU In
creating interest mul n profitable
evtiiiugH' entertainment,   Whisper:
We will appreciate yonr 1914 renewal.
FOR 1919
lu concluding the year I beg to re
port a membership of thirty live expiring now; six of wnlrh were rarry-
overa frour tho lost two months i>f
1912, and we also bave three on present list who have only recently
joined and will be carried over thia
year, making a total membership at
conclusion of the year of 38. I regret to report that one or two of
our most enthusiastic members bave
fallen by the way, having failed to
renew last year.
At the last annual meeting, accord
ing to audit, tbere was in the bank
the amount of $40.55 association
During the yenr we have been quite
prodigal of our cash and bave paid
out for advertising $10.40, for yearly
cards in local papers $10.00 for card;
postage and other expenses of secre
tary $11.00; for coops for demonstration puruoses $6.55; for prizes at the
Fall Fair $5.50; and bnve outstnnd
ing against us $9.60; mulling a total
expenditure of $53.15, most of which
I think has given results Been or unseen.
During tbe year membership fees
have been taken In to the amount ol
$32.00, which gives us at present the
amount of $29.10 still on hand and
bills for $9.60 against it, so that we
are to the good over all liabilities
to date $19.50.
Considering results of our expenditure in local papers the yearly cards
sre, I think, justified. As secretary
I have had inquiries to the number
I would Bay, of from forty to Hfty,
mostly from parts of B.C. but several from Alberta and a few from the
Old Country, to oil of whlcb I have
endeavored to reply as fully as possible to their questions. I would ad
vise the continuing of the cards the
coming year.
As to the advertising of aecretarys
list of breeders in Spring months, as
we did last year, I cannot express
an opinion as to its value, the members here present are the best judges
of results from that.
Our expenditures at the Fall Fair
are, I think, amply justified by the
splendid exhibit we brought out,
which I think was pnrtlally responsible for some of our members carry
ing the war afar and going out and
bringing home some of the good
prizes from Nelson and (Irnnd Forks,
I think the thanks of our assm-ln
tlon ure due to nur friends and fel
Inw mouthers, MOSSM Hln tei, MeGre
gor McBrlde nnd Plgott, wbu made
the tlrst essay after outside honors
for the good of our association,
their own education as fanciers nnd
Ibe advertising of (.ranbrook as tbt.
home of some like chicken friends.
We must congratulate ourselves Of]
tbe arrival In the dlstnrt of some
poultry men wbo seem to be going
at the  utility side In  tin- right wny
and wc hope to Bee tbem convince
BOme past failures that the
fault wns not in the business hut in
the men.
T&lflng it in toto I Bhould say that
not considering small outfits at all,
there has in the past year been erect
ed shelter for 2,000 layers in the immediate district; so that we should
be able soon to point with pride to
enough well bandied poultry outfits
to supply the discriminating buyers
of eggs with all the first quality
goods tbey require,
Mr. Robson, who came in last
spring and has charge of Mr. Atchi-
son'B poultry, hns added a number
of new houses. Mr. Williams has got
under a businesslike outfit and Mr.
Huggins has also established a good
Hissed range of buildings. Each of
these outfits runs into the hundreds
of layers aud each is being capably
handled and giving, I am glad to
say, good prospects of success. Added to these the one or two large
outfits already in business for Borne
time pant and (he added interest of
the owners of smaller flocks, tbe yvtim
mlng up of it all makes a grand total thnt ought to make  itself felt.
Another phase of our work, I hope
to see soon changed, is the market
Ing. Instead uf our members and 0-
thfih disposing of surplus stuck to
Chinamen. I hope to see one or two
properly equipped fattening establish
ments bandied by men who keep tbe
country cleaned up ol marketable
stock ami place it belore tbe consumer properly lb-shed and properly
dressed. The white gardeners are
having their own troubles witb tbe
Chinamen and I hope our associa-
ation will in some wny aid and abet
a campaign I hope soon to be inaugurated here by the Farmers' Institute, to give the white man a better
show in thc district.
The first successful attempt to
bring in our own feed was concluded
I believe, to the satisfaction of all
concerned, and I hope we will soon
be in a position to buy tho bard
grain In a car lot direct from the
grower and go to the middle man
for mixed feeds only Our association and tbe Farmers' Institute need
to get closer together on thla question.
I thank the association for their
support last year and 1 regret tbat
I nm so situated that 1 cannot fill
this office this year but will be only
too glad to be of use to you in any
other way.
