All being well, thp Brat minister Intends to redeem thin promise tind

All outstanding questions affecting

Old Friends New Thoughts
Surprised ut Cranbrook's Progress
Hearing directly and indirectly so
much in regard to tbe progress of
Crnnhrook and this district, I was
ready after something over a year's
absence to see evidences of improvement in Cranbrook but wns not
ready to see the material growth
that has taken place in tbe city during the past fifteen or sixteen months
I would like to say here that the
growth that lias taken place in Cranbrook is of a material nature, a
growth that shows confidence on the
part Of the people of Crnnhrook to
the outside world and that is one of
tbe best advertisements thnt any
city can have. I have observed in my
conversation wltb old friends that
there has heen a marked advance as
to the unanimity of feeling regarding
the possibilities of tho rity, and consequently a much greater improvement towards working together for
everything that would prove of benefit to tho City nnd district. Those
who bnve known me here in the past.,
know tbat I have always believed in
working together nnd until the people in any city have arrived nt that
stage it is Impossible to secure much
in the wny of satisfactory results.
There have been times in tbe past
when n feeling of dissatisfaction has
prevailed when your Board of Trade
were simply organizations in name
only, but at tho present time I am
convinced that the Cranbrook Board
of Trade has secured tbe necessary
spirit nf co-operation that means
successful results. Two men may be
competitors In business hut thoy
should get together when it comes to
any work fur the promotion of the
best interests of tholr community. It
seems as though the people of Cranhrook fully realize that very strong
point in progress nnd are willing not
only to art but to contribute for the
success of nu organization that has
only one object iu view and that is
"A Grenter nrnnbrook". The buildings that have been erected birth of
n public and private nature, the sewerage which was absolutely necessary
In this city, the improvements of
loads leading to and  from  tbe city,
all combine to make a great and
glorious step forward for Cranbrook
and the future of her people. As
editor of tbe Herald in the past I
was called either a booster or a fool
for saying that tbe Cranbrook district was destined to he a producing
district, and tbat the talk of the mills
soon being through and the C.P.R.
moving their shops to Wardner,
which seemed to he an annual epidemic among a certain class of people, was the rankest nonsense. Cranbrook mUBt depend upon her own industries and the growth nnd productiveness of her surrounding country.
The demand for land and the increase of prices is a practical demonstration of the fnct thnt the people
from the outside are now satisfied
that Cranbrook has the land and the
climate to make fruit and smnll
farming an absolute success. Fill up
your lands and handle the affairs of
your city in a businesslike manner,
and Cranbrook will grow as sure as
the sun rises nnd sets.
Yes! "I like Kamloops where 1 am
living at the present time and expect to live there the rest of my
life. The altitude is only 1200 feet
and the climate delightful. The building of the Canadian Northern down
the North Thomson to Kamloops
and west to tbe coast, also south
from Kamloops through the Okun-i-
gan country means that Kamloops
must necessarily become the big distributing point on the main lines of
traffic in the Interior of British Columbia. The town is rapidly growing, as rapidly in fact as men nnd
material enn be secured. Last year
with 1800,000 in Improvement, excltl
slve of railway improvements, Kam
loops stood 18th In the way of Improvements nf nil the Cities in the
Dominion of Canada. I would be only he too glad to have nny of niy
friends drop off when they ran aud
see Kamloops for themselves. Thle
is a great country and when one
can any a good word for another
town they are doing the best, tin-
very best they ran for the promotion
of tbelr own country and the Upbtlll
ding of the province ns u whole.

Word has heen received nil along

In Prank are taking advantage uf the
warning issued by the provincial
government iu regard to another
slido nt tbnt place and ure moving
out. Tbe Union Hank is moving to
Bellcview, a short distance from
Frank, where they bave secured quartern, and it is expected that a number of other business houses will do
the same within the next week or ten
dnys, Just as soon as the arrangements can he completed.
It was also stated that during the
past few dnys, on account of the
warm weather, Mini tllfl slides whlcb
have almost been of a daily occurrence in small quantities since tbe
last big slide, In which a number of
people lost their lives, and a large
amount of property destroyed, aud
they have boon growing heavier day
hy day, and it Is expected that just
as soon as tbe frost is out of the
rocks that the slides will gather in
intensity und that great damage may
he expected shortly.
Belleview will In nil probability
take the place of Frank, and that
camp will be greatly increased by the
number of people that will remove
from Frank, Many new residences
and business blocks are now in tbe
course or construction there, and It
will not be long till tbe town of

prosperous mining town, which for
years has furnished millions of tons

The annual meeting of the Cranbrook District Automobile Association was held in the dining room of
the Wasa Hotel, nt Wasa un Thursday evening.
. Tbe meeting wus enthusiastic and
j showed all the spirit of progressive-
• ness in untomohile interests as well
las the member.- co-upernting „with
! several schemes for the advancement
of the welfare of tbe district in gen-
• eral.
When the    various "auto's" begun
; to arrive at Waan, during the after-
] noon, it was evident that a represen-
| tatlve gathering  was to  take place,
I and one that in all probability would
\ he capable of doing some good work.
I Borne members of the association and
j the press, enjoyed the hospitality of
others in tbe trip from    Cranbrook,
via Fort Steele, while a large number
of friends,    though    nut    automobile
J owners,  took an earnest Interest   in
tbe work that   was being promulgated In the interests of good    roads,
and the making uf Kast Kootenay a
resort for tourists and pleasure seekers, as well as residents and settlers.
The meeting was called to order by
V. Hyde Haver, president, at 8 p. m.
about 2fi being present; after reading
tbe minutes of the last meeting    by
the    secretary,    W.   W.    Wilson,   tho
members got down to business.
The attention of tbe meeting was
called to several very dangerous
places along tbe road, and road superintendent Read, who wns present
assured the meeting tbat this would
he attended to at once, he was having some 150 danger hoards painted,
that W/Oltld be placed where there wns
iny danger. It was further stated
thnt as various drivers of all kinds
of vehicles were apparently ignorant
■>f tbe rules of the road, it was absolutely necessary thut these rules
should bo obtained and placed In
prominent positions so that they
could be easily seen. It was particularly drawn to tbe meetings notice
tbnt there were n number of young
people who hired teams nnd it tbo
same time were unaware which side
of the road to ride. The looting
suggested tbat the secretary icrllo to
the government fnr a supply *f cotton notices of the regulations gcv-
omlng the requirements so that these
could be nailed up' in prominent
Mr. A. I*. Fenwick, of Fort Steele,
suggested thai attention be given to
the making of several of the trunk
roads more perfect, at present there
wus a road between Wardner and Bull
Kiver nnd J affray to Klko that wus
practically perfect, while the road
from Bull Kiver to Fort Steele were
in fairly good condition, as was the
j road from Fort Steele, north to
| WuBn, nnd all thnt was wanted now
was the repairing of the road from
j Mud Creek to Wasa, aud we would
have some of the linest trunk roads
to be found in tho province. When
this is (tone, we shall be able to
drive from Cranbrook to Steele then
to Wardner, back home, having an
excellent outing, a pleasure trip that
would give to visitors a proper idea
of what  the country was like.
Superintendent Kendo, stated that
the government was providing an up-
to-dote rock crusher, and that as far
as possible the trunk roads would be
maenmndized ns rapidly as possihle.
Dr. J. fl. King, suggested that a
permanent rond committee be appointed to make what recommendations
were necessary in connection with the
roads and report to the superintendent of rnnds. This would be of gre.it
assistance to Mr. Head, and facilitate
tbe work required, as Mr. Head having some 400 miles of road to keep
In repair It was almost impossible
for him to fulfill all  the needs.
Messrs. A. R. Fenwick, of Fort
N. Hanson, of Wasa; and Oeorge
Hoggntb of Crnnhrook, were appointed as a committee, to whom all
complaints about had roads will be
Another suggestion of Dr. King,
wns thut as there were such a large
number of untoists that were running
cars out of Cranbrook, some 50 or
perhaps more, nnd the garages having
cars to rent, it would he an excellent
plan to organize a tour to Leth
bridge to attend the Dry Farming
Congress nnd do a bit of practical
advertising of Crnnhrook district. A
large tent, or even a shell building
could be put up for their accommodation and u commissionaire be obtained to look afler their various
needs, This would mean that there
would be a small Cranbrook in Loth-
bridge and every one would be a
walking talking advertiser. Practical cflhihlts could also be shown to
advantage.    It. was     then announced
that the excursion was under consideration by tbe Hoard of Trade. The I
president, Mr. Baker, appointed Messrs K. B. Beattie, and A. C. Bowness
! a committee to mnve all arrangements and work in conjunction with
the H of T. committee and do what
[they could to further the project as
it would he nn admirable scheme.
Road Supt., John Head was elected an honorary member, and several
new members sinned tbo roll.
Messers Mott, Supple and McCownn
were appointed a committee to draft
up rules, regulations und by-laws for
the association.
Mr. B. Small suggested that the
colors of the association should be
Cranbrook  colors,   White and  Qreon.
Dr. King brought up the question
of automobile licenses when crossing
the borders of, and visiting another
province, which hns been a source of
annoyance to a number of the mem
hers who have made trips Into Al
herta, the British Columbln license]
not being respected, even when touring for pleasure, nnd that a new license must be procured, It was suy
gested that the matter be taken up
with the various associations in the
neighboring provinces, also in the
States to the south, whereby It will
not be necessary to procure an additional license wben on a motoring
trip. A legislative committee wns
appointed to look Into this matter
nnd report result. Messrs A. C.
Bowness, J. P. Fink, of Cranbrook.
and A. Doyle of Fort Steele were nil-
pointed as a committee.
The following olliceres were elected
lor the ensuing year:
Hon. President. N. Hanson.
President.  V.  Hyde  Baker.
Vice-President, Dr. J, H. King.
Sec-Trim*.,  W.  H.  Wilson.
Directors,  Dr. F. W. Clroen.
A. It. Fenwick.
Geo. Koggnrth,
A   vote Of  thanks  was extended  to
the president for his services during
the past year, and congratulations
on his being the first president of the
Messrs V. Hvde linker, Dr. King,
(J. Hoggnrth, B, Small, A. c. Bow
ness, M. ijnain, V. Hyde Baker, 18.
Mott, Patrick, Myers. Fink, Hanson.
Fenwick and McKowan, all had the!I
cars lined up in front of the WiiHg
Hotel nnd enjoyed the hospitality of
the proprietor.
The city council met in solemn con
eluve  on   Wednesday  evening,   Mayor
Uowness  presiding  supported  by   Al-1
dermen    Johnson,  Clapp,     Cameron, J
blrlckson,* Campbell and Atchison.
The School Trustees being in at-
tendance Aldermen Johnson and Cameron moved that they be heard. Carried. H. White, and N. Hnrrisoa,
then spoke on behalf of the Board in
respect to an account of $1181.00 that
had heen referred hack last week, explaining that the (lovernment was
giving the $lf,J000.00 to them with
the understanding the city council
i-oiiglil tiie land. The present school
i-' full to its limit and anutberischool
will soon he neeessary. Mr. n*.e
snd thnt although 'iv ,-h .; ,..,.
outside the city limits it was In the
school nrea ami in a district which
was growing  fust.
Tho Mayor asked the city soliutor.
if the council was compelled or rather forced to pay anything the School
Honrd like to ask. Answer—Yes, if
the sum is to he used for maintain- i
Mayor  llowncss:
Then the -School Hoard can go on j
asking  and  we  must be compeled to
pay until all the dty'revenue is taken up nnd nothing Is left for city
improvements.—Yes!   if  necessary.
Mayor Howness, then I tbink it U
a gross injustice and the law should
he altered.
Aldermen Campbell and Clapp moved thnt the XGf.1.00 account be paid.
S. Macdonald asked the council for
; an 1* hour dav on behalf of the city
employees giving the council the in-
f or matt on that no where in British
, Columbia is anyone of the city men
worked for more than K or 9 hours,
i nlso making the request that the
men receive |3,(N1 per day instead ol
-J2.75 their present wage. The council told Mr. Macdonald they would
consider it.
The council then settled down to
business having before them the eev-
eral estimates front the several departments. It was at once seen when
these were read thut the spirit of improvement*; bad invaded everyone,
and the new spirit that has invaded
the citizens to an higher worth and
n respect for the city of which we ail
hold a part had surely Invaded the
very council chamber.

The Alqertan, of Calgary, a paper
that cuts many ridiculous political

railway commission has the following
bit of satire: " He may be a good

He was not a good member of parliament, and has not been such a
conspicuous success in anything that

New Westminster. April 10.—Young
people throughout Canada are taking
a great deal of interest in the essay
competition fostered by W. .1. Kerr,
president of the Canadian Highway
Aiiociation, who hae offered valuable
(old, silver nnd silver gilt medals
tor the best essay on "What Uood
Roads Mean to Canada."
Although puhlie announcement of
the lact was only made two weeks
weeks ago, the headquarters of the
Canadian Highway Association already resembles the committee
room of u college Just before graduation. Every day from three to
twelve essays are received by the
secretary, P, W. Luce, who has In
hand the classification and preliminary judging of the essays submitted.
The reading of the papers and the
awarding of the prizes will he dom
by a competent committee selected
because of long experience in news
paper and magazine work, and that
the Judgement of these men will give
general satisfaction is not to he
Some ol the papers received hy the
secretary hear the marks ol earnest
and careful preparation. Others, of
course, as can he expected are written In a haphazard and careless man
ner and are not to be counted as
serious competitors for the valuable
prizes. All entrants, however, whose
papers show evidence of study of the
subject will be presented with a
souvenir pin.
Some ol the competitors are only
'fourteen years of age and others are
approaching the limit of eighteen
years, but the majority are from
sixteen to seventeen years of age.
Papers have been received from
Harristou, Ontario; Killam. Alberta;
Glace Bay, N. H.; Heulrew, Ont.,
Montreal, Toronto, Cornwall S our la,
Winnipeg, Brandon. Strathcona, Sas

Nunaimo, Cbllllwack, Coquitlam,
Creston and many other places.
Up to the present the essays submitted by the boys show more care
fui thought and deeper study than
those submitted by tho young ladles,
but in the opinion of Mr. Kerr this
does not mean that the girls will be
left behind when the competition is
decided. He believes that the girls
are taking their time and going mon
deeply into the study of tlic econo
mica of Good Roads and that durlnp
the two weeks preceding the close ol
the competition there will be a large
number of carefullv prepared paper*-"
received from the members of the
gentler sei.
Secretary P. W. I,ure has prepare*'
a circular which he Is Heading to nil
children who require Information
that will help thrm in the compos!

only Intended ns a guide, and whlh
lt Is of considerable assistance ti
the children, It does not give thosi
who receive It any unfair nd vantage
over those who have already prepar
ed tbeir papers and forwarded to
htm. He was induced to get out this
Httle leaflet because ho many ch.fi

the government of many States

und Incldentty to "loot." It is
greatly to be regretted that It is noi
physically possible to resort to the
water hose at every point where those
irresponsible agitators crop up, hut
there are other means of quenching
their ardour hardly less effective, and
the Government of British Columbia
may be trusted to discover them.
