district, met in the Goveinintnt build

Much important evidence was broiu
before the Commissioners, those testifying were:— Rlniore Sta.Irs ot the
Otis Stalls Lumber Co. .Wyclifle.;
and Mayor A. C. Bowness, of Cranbrook."
Mr. Staples said that certain kinds
of labor were plentiful, then gave a
description of thi accenmodat'oo
afforded to men at Wycllfle. He said
that hospital fees was $1 per month,
which was collected by th.- company
and paid to the doctor*-. That Chi
na ncn did not pay medical fees. Th
company emp'o/B about 450 men, the
doctors get the full amount of mon
ies collected; thnt there was no discount given to thc firm; that th
doctors had to travel about 15 miles
which toon the in a out an hour and
a half, cash way, to yet there. We
have a very few casual ties, camps
are kept as sa.it-.ry condition a
possible, we supply tbe men with
clothing from th • .-tore, the profits
amount to about 25 per cm:, The:
is no interference on the part of th
company as to men going to Cranbrook to trad.1. We pay our mn.. In
cheques cn the bank of commerce,
are at par, and ^oud with every thank
or business house in the district,
a man is discharged h- is paid by a
cheque. We pay monthly, th'Te hai
been no complaints among the men
The men receive alo.it (70 per
month.     Families pay,  at the corn-
excellent clnss of nm. most of
Ihem having been with the compan,
over three yea*_ and some of them
nine yearn. If a man hues his cheque
we stop payment on cheque, and immediately issue to him a duplicate

10,000 per month, our market is Southern Alberta. Wc ship o:er the
Crow Line, and competition crimes
mostly from the United States, never fin ling Coast competition except
tn Northern Alberta, and in Manitoba.    Thc conditions,  at the presmt
time, are such thnt we have no <o.n-
plaint ngainst the Government.
Mayor A. 0. Bowness snid: "Thsre
is n scarcity of labor at times. The
city pays the chief engineer $125 per
month, assistant engineer $100 per
month, ordinary labor $2.75 per day
of ten hours, and never had any labor disputes. Have n city BoUsitor
who receives a salary of 580 per
month. There has bcen nbout 120
by-laws passed since the city was in-
corporat.d. We have a water s.s
tem, and sewerage. The population
is ubout 25,000. Comi 1 i.nts bave
been made against time cheque.*, issued and not payable .or sc.eral
months; time cheques payable on de
mand arc as good as n bank cheque,
long time cinques are discounted at
about 20 per cent. Think that th
men should be paid monthly. City
Council meets on second Monday o
each month to pass uccounts, an.
the men are paid immediately there
after. Half-day weekly h.lida. s
would be all right during the sum

The Frankjich Co.
The Prank Rich Company, which
open ad a week's engagement at the
Auditorium, on last Monday night,
proved to he a most delightful and
an unexpected surprise. We have become accustomed to listcn'ng to the
line of praise usually handed out by
tbe advance man, ubout his attraction, but in this case thc advance
mau did not exaggerate. This com*
pr.uy is by far the best theatrical organization that we have ever seen in
the City at popular prices. The plays
nre all exceptionally well produced,
the scenery cpUumes nnd electrical
effects, being especially attractive.
The company is headed by George A.
Burton, a conedian par excellence,
wbo is ably us-listed by Tommy
Burns, Mr. Bums is a comedian of
the touch and go variety, with plenty of ginger, and a splendid acrobatic
ns well as an eccentric dancer. Miss
Marjorie Maudeville, who essays the
soubrette roles, is a winsome, clever
girl, that never fails to please. She
surprised her many admirers, by
showing beyond the shadow of a
doubt, that in addition to being a
singer and a dancer, as well &. an
accomplished actress, that as a contortionist, she has few rivals. The
entire company is worthy of special
mention, but we regret that our lack
of space will not permit us to in-
ilMdualii-e. Those who have not seen
tbe Prank Rich Company, have missed one of the best theatrical treats
of tho season. The company terminated its engagement last Saturday
night, with the Prank Rich Mimtrel
Maids, a musical melange in two
acts, and eight big vaudeville num
hers. It is to be hoped that ths
organization may he persuaded to
give us a return date, later in thc
Owing to a serious breakdown
of our type-setting machine
we were unavoidably delayed
with the issue of this week's
paper; we have, however, sent
for some new parts which wc
hope will arrive in time for

Arrest Management
On Tuesday the management of the
Wasa Hotel, at Wasa, were arrested,
harged with a violation of the Provincial Liquor Act.
The particulars of the case are
somewhat mixed, the result showing
that theie was no foundation for the
(harge. It seems that provincial
constable Mlntie, sent constable Lo-
?on of Wardner to Wasa on Saturday
lust. Logan spent all day Sunday at
the hotel nnd during the day it was
found necessary to go Into the barroom to secure change which was
needed for the accommodation ol
gueBts at the hotel wbo were paying
bills, most of them being transients
who were there for only a Bhort time.
Constable Logon reported theae facta
to Chief Mintia. who ordered that a
complaint be laid aud the management arrested.
On Wednesday Messrs. Johnson,
Beck and Jensen were taken befor,
Justices of the Peace, Galbraith snd
Fenwick at Fort Steele, who on hearing the evidence, discharged the accused, saying that no violation had
heen made.
Wasa is one of tin prettiest outing
places in East Kootenay and a large
number of visitors from all over the
district go there for an o'.iting, and
the hotel is one of thc best conduct
i t-'d in the Province and the provincial
liquor statutes are respected; why the
management should be arrested and
charged with a violation of the act,
pimply because they were compelled
to enter tl»3 bar room to secure funds
to make change, thm hailed to a justice, of the peace, twelve miles away,
Reems that some one was certainly
mistaken and ill-informed as to the
requirements of the act.

Last year the Cranbiooc team tied
with Calgary Freight Sheds for 2nJ
place out of 5 competing teams. This
year they crept up a little high-r as
will be seen nlove, getting second
place out of seven competing teams.
The local official •> were satis'ied at
the showing made by Cranbr. o'., for
after considering the handful ot men

so as not to affect working depart-
mints any more thnn could be helpe,
and Odgen with its few hundred men
to choose trom, some of them having
the highest certificates that can he
had, having won them in the Hritlth

team did well, especially Mr. II.

who realized the importance of tht
work handled in a skilful manner and
who does everything in his power to
promote the success of the work at

has tbe support of all.

Makes Discovery
Lethbridge is in a fin? way over
the discovery that instead of haying
borrowing powers to the tune oi
S467.612.38, they have only ?40,090.00.
This state of nftairs has only just
been discovered by the City Treasurer. Startling as the information, iB,
the public is asked to reserve further
judgment until a full investigation is
made into the boo'ts d; the city nnd
the placing of debenture bonds. To
nil accounts it is in cm taction with
the latter that the mistake has been
made, for no hoiks have apparently
ever bcen kept of tha debenture iu-

From thc affidavit ol Samuel
Hodgktns, a I'rntistant, it appears,
that his daughter, Alvlna Hodgkins,
17 years of age, has heen at St. Jo
Be h s convent at lied Deer, for thc
past two years. Kor some rei s.m not
ilis.l i-e.l in the affidavit, h- went to
the convent about two weeks a'.'o and

This was apparently with the lull
consent o' the daughter. Bhe bail

Government   Has   Not   Yet   Included
Women Amongst Clasoes to Whom
Homesteads are Granted
Tho numbor of women fanners in
Canada is increasing, the prospects of
success is encouraging, and today one
can draw clear conclusions as to the
prospects of the average woman whose
mind is set on life ou the land.
The average woman bred and born
within the confines of the comfortable
'conditions of tho British islands is
not. usually born a pioneer. It is not
that slie Jacks either courage or the
spirit of adventure, but she does lark
thnt ballast of endurance which is
only to bo won through tho hand-to-
hand wrestle with the tiresome conditions of the dally round In countries
which do not rely on colored lahor for
tho fulfillment of tho meaner nnd severer phase:, of the day's work.
At the time of my first season's experiment, wiih farm pupil.*?, writes
Oeorglna Binnle-Clark, a successful
farmer, 1 was pressing the Just claim
of "Homesteads for Women" on the
attention of tho Minister of the Interior, and I know that the prospects
of the average woman ns u settler had
to be frankly confronted and discussed. One hundred und sixly ncres o
the land of opportunity handed over to
n woman—hind probably forty miles
from a station aud possibly Wlthoul
wood for fuel or trme of wnler ou the
surface from end Lo end. It is not to
he wondered at if the government
takes time to consider the pon.*-.I.lllty
of granting this opportunity to women.
To train farm pupils seemed lo me
tho only way of clearly demonstrating
the power of women to work tho land,
aud whether my pupils personally
needed the Government grant or not,
I expected Ihem to 111 themselves for
tho homestead test. lOinerson's Law
of Nature, "Do ihe thing and you shall
havo the power," together with Lord
Macaulay's summary of the wisdom
of tho world. "Those means are the
most correct which hest accomplish
the ends," was the broad method, and
if in detail |t was open to criticism,
and certainly entailed much argument,
tho result proved it good within a
single season.
For working conditions we had the
average setting of a Canadian farm of
threo hundred nnd twenty acres of
land. In place of the ordinary bachelor's "shack" there was a six-roomed
log-and-plnsier cottage which my predecessor had built, and around which
I had caused to be thrown a wide
verandah, which increased the accommodation for lahor or leisure, A
well fed by a Spring secured a permanent, supply of water, which liad
to be hauled about two hundred yards
by means of a barrel and stem-boat.
There was ample stable accommodation for about twenty head of stock,
besides pigs and poultry.

Now the   session   is  drawing to a
close, a glance over itB record shows
it hns been the most dramatic since
confederation.     The  Borden  government   has   been   in   power  eighteen
months and during that time it has
carried   out  more  pledges than   the
Laurier   Government   did   in   fifteen
years of office.
When,  by tbe   will of the people,

honest,    careful    conscientious   man.

ot the Canadian people, whon ho declared that Canada should na longer

for himself the thanks of every man
who believes that the Union Jack

word Mr. Borden, despite extraordinary difficulties ot the Laurier brand,
hns shown himself to be a British-
Canadian, whose conception ot Empire responsibilities is as far removed
from tbe puny vaccilation o! Laurier,
as day is Irom nlgbt.
Sir Oeorge W. Ross, the Liberal
leader in tbe Senate, at tho bidding
ol blB master, Sir Wilfrid Laurier,
has lined up his doughty "followers
and placing party before country or
Empire, has killed the Borden Naval
Aid Bill.
The people ot Canada now know
the real Laurier and the real Ron.
Both have by their recent actions
snd utterances repudiated their past
professions and principles in a, most
Bhameless manner.
Tbe Ethiopian cannot change his
skin, nor the leopard h s sp t,
George Ross and Sir Wilfrid Laurier
are partisans first and Imperialists
only whenever party expediency requires lt. Ib
When tbe Laurier Naval BUI was
under discustion in tbe Senate ln
1910, and an amtndment was moved
thnt the question bc submitted to
tbe poople first, Sir Oeorge Ross,
spca ing against tbis amen .me,
declared that a reference to tho people by means ot a referendum
otherwise was qu to unnecessary and
the policy of the government in no
wise unconstitutional. 1 He declared:
'"A government that d.es not .cm
thnt its policy is controlled by parliament ought to retire. It this government does not represent tno people, and does not voice the opinion
of the people, then it sho.ml retir..
The whole theory nf responsible gov
eminent Is based on tbis principle—
that tlic men In power have the co
fidence UI the people. In the face (
the result of the Inst general elec-
tlon, in tbe lace ot the vory substan
tlal majorities at the back ol the
governm'nt In the House, why should
you adopt that timid baiting policy
of referring n matter which is evidently tho wish of thc people ot the
country, represented by responsible
government, buck to the people at
nil. Show me an Instance In the history of Canada, or In the history of
Ktiglnnd, whero the Government bo
fur abdicated Ita own functions as to
shirk Its responsibility ami rotor a
question to thc peoplo?"—(Senate Do*
baton,  1910, p. 762).
Today this Btime Sir Oeorge Rose
absolutely repudiates tho above
in 1910, sir Oeorge Ron declared
Mint the advice of the British Admir
ulty should he the guide to follow In
the Inception dr development o*f any
Onnndinn   nnvnl   policy.    He  stated
on the floor ot th. Senate on Apt
29 ol that year that:
"While I am not much impressed
with what Is called the German scare
I think tho duty ol England iB plain,
nnd our duty is equally plain; lor
the conquest ol England moans the
onnuest ol Can.da. Let the i ri s
throne totter; let London bo in possession ot the enemy; let her ports
be filled with foreign seamen end foreign men-of-war, and Canada would
be blotted Irom the map as an English dependency and her autonomy
would be lorevor destroyed. And, although I do not think the emergency
ls great, still I think it is sufficiently
great tor us to be guided by the judgment of tho Admiralty ot England,
to prepare ourselves (or all pos
Today Sir George Ross res-din
his statement as above, made ln 1910
and refuses to be guided by the British Admiralty.
(n 1910, Sir George Ross declared
that on tho question of naval aid to
Britain both parties should unite and
the opposition accept the policy o
tbe government. He stated as follows:
"I rejoice, as I am sure overy member of this House rejoices, thit on
March 29, 1909,' when tbe question
first came boforo tbe parliament of
Canada, both parties recognized the
duty and necessity of naval defence.
It will bo regarded in tho future aa
a good omen that In all matters pertaining to the defence o' n oml
ion there Is no dlvitlm In Canada.
Wo may divide on matters of tariff
and administration, but it is a sign
of national strength and spirit that
when an enemy is at the gate, or
war Is apprehended, parliament, Irrespective of party, should unite as
one man in defence of their common
country." '

his statement of 1910 and persists In

pire.     In  the light ot   hia present
conduct, bow hollow and meaninglts,
tho above utterance ot his sounds?
Sir George Ross today is an avowed Separatist, a worthy pupil ot hi!
lord and master, Sir Wiltrid Laurier.
He is an advocate of the Laurier navy i o icy of neutrality In th.* tl
of war and of declining to participate with Britain in any war she
may be engaged In unlets portion* ■
so decided. He, today, declares tor
a policy of Separation and Independence.
What a contrast to his utterances
ot two years ago! In tho Senate o
November 16,  1910, Sir Oeorge Ross
tated as follows:
"The Empire and the Colonies are
one. When tho Empire defonda itsoli
lt defends tbe Colonies, and whon the
Colonies defend themselves thoy defend tbe Empire. But It ls aald that
Great Britain may embroil us In continental wars, tor which wo are not
responsible, and of which wo might
not approve. This la a myth. Thia
Is the objection of the man wh h ?
not studied history, who haa never
looked at England's wars in tho perspective in which wo see them and
which is not capable of being sustained by ficts. It you go ovor tho
wars of the last century, you will not
nd one that I can .recall at
thla moment In which Great Britain
was engaged which was not ln any
respect and some in all respects r
meritorious war."
Today Sir George Ross repudiate*
his former statement that the Empire
and tho Colonies are one. Al clay
,n the hands of tb» io..t.r ha is a
mere puppet In the h. nds of Laurier
n 1 his b nd of Separatists and hra-
ire-hutois. ' L.t En In.id loo.
after hirself' is their p.llcy, ths
policy of all auch ' 11 .th Canadians"
and fa e Imperialists.
Out of his ov n mouth Sir Oeorge
.oss   stands   c.ndennd i.el re   the
io. le of c,,n t'a and of the Empire

Prosperity In Ireland.
In nn article reviewing the condition of real estate business in the
United Kingdom, as shown by the
transactions <<f thr* year 1011, the T.<*u-
don Economist refers tu Ireland a.
having exhibited for more distinctly
than any other part of tho country au
improved state 'if thing,-, "In Ire-
land,. Fays Tii" Kconomist, 'the magic
of property ha workod wonder.**, and
the inere fact that, the tenants own
their lands ha*-- produced an enormous
increase in agricultural industry and
prosperity." This statement is in accord with tho observations and narratives of visitors tn Trehnd for somo
time past. The land purohase legislation matted by Parliament after so
many years of agitation has amply
vindicated the claim.**- of those wlio su
earnestly and persistently urged that
reform of tho system ol lund tenure
was the one most vital need of lhe
country. Foremost among tho names
of those whoso influence waa exerted
in behalf of this wise and salutary
policy should bo placed that of John
Stuart Mill; how much misery and
how much political diflieulty and danger might have been obviated had hi-*
counsels been heeded sevcntly in-dead
of twenty yeara ago, it is impossible
to compute.
