Popular Resident Leaves Phoenix
F. J. Smyth, for the past nine
months connected with the staff of
this paper, severed his connection
with Phoenix on Saturday last when
he left to take over,the editorship of
the Slmilkamcen Star at Princeton.
Almost from the time of his appearance tn our midst his affability and
genuine good nature asserted itself,
while in lodge circles Ms advent was
loci.ed upon as a distinct acquisition
to the fraternal membership in this
city. Ruskin once wrote tbat "it
was a good and safe rule to sojourn
ln every place as if you meant to
spend the remainder of your life
there," and.it would amost seem as
lf our late colleague had made a
practice ot carrying the maxim
around in his hat, with the result
that general regret ls expressed tn all
quarters at his departure for ottfcr
spheres ot work.
The countryiserved by the "Star"
embraces a huge area, the potentialities of which arc as yet undreamed of. But it is perhaps in
its mining possibilities that its chief
claim to outside attention will llo,
the development of which we understand Is In future to claim much of
the attention of thc Stnr's new editor.— Phoenix Pioneer.
slon of the Baptist Convention. In
the report, after dealing with the excellent work which had been done by
Dr. Sawyer and hla stall, it waa
stated that instruction had been given to ninety-one students during the
year. Collegiate diplomas have been
granted to fourteen students, and e
large number had secured passes as
stated some time ago. Two former
students of'the college, Mr. E. M.
Lock and F. A. MeWllllama, the report added, had graduated from Mc-
Master College, Toronto, this year.
PRAI8E FOR DR. SAWYER.
Rev. P. 0. Parker, who seconded
the report, praised Dr. Sawyer, and
spoke in laudatory terms of the work
which he had done In building such
an institution and carrying on the
work under the circumstances. The
spirit ot the times, he said, was optimistic and thus members of
churches were sometimes a bit high
when promising money to churches
and their work, and bo when the
lime came for collecting these same
men only donated fifty per cent of
the amount promised.
Large Industrial establishments, he
pointed' out, had railed after large
minis of money bad been spent in
building plants, and so the Baptists
of the province should not reel pessimistic in looking into the future.
Common sense business principles, he
concluded, should be applied to the
carrying on of the work of the college, and sentiment should not enter
the financing scheme. The location
of tbe college, it was pointed out, by
n number of speakers was most admirable for the carrying on of such
n work, and with the opening of the
new railway lines it would occupy a
central point in the province.

Death of David Griffiths
Last Sunday David GrflJths died at
Fort Steele. In the death of Mr.
Griffith East Kootenay loses one of
the oldest pioneers, a man who has
been Identified with the progress and
development of the country for the
past fifty years, and who passed
away at the ripe old age of 95
yeara.
A special invitation had been extended to him to attend the Chahko
Mika celebration at Nelson for the
Pioneers' reunion and it is significant
that his funeral occurred on the
opening day of the celebration.
David Griffith was born in Wales
ln 1834 and was among the early
emigrants to California in the gold
rush of 1850 and later years. In 1865
he started the first placer excitement
of the Wild Horse, having drifted
'from California into Eaat Kootenay.
I He was a promiment and picturesque
1 figure in the great rush of those
' early days and was a pioneer long
before men, who now consider them-
' selves pioneers, had arrived in the
country.

Credit Banks Helps Farmer to His Feet
Agrarian Co-Operative Societies in Germany, France, Italy, and Austro-Hungary
assist Landowner in developing his acres, selling his product through
co-operative and extsnding his lands
By J. J. BOSDAN
For tbe lust twenty-five years the
continuous emigration of a great
multitude of European people to otber countries tins caused considerable
worry in almost every country of the
continent. Numerous large holdings
are held by a (ew noblemen. Tbey,
of course, allowed the peasants to till
the soil for them. The peasants did
not cultivate thc soil fot- the leftovers of the feudal system; but they
were solely oppressed by their
"lords." Consequently, they began
to look (or new climes to eke out a
livelihood for their families. They
left Rusopi> in such great numbers
tbat, in a short time, miles of cultl-
vatabte land were abandoned.
Today agriculture, as an industry,
is more heavily subsidized and aided
by the governments of the European
countries than any other field.
As far back'as 100 years ago the
foundation for giving special aid to
farmers and rural agricultural landholders was started in Prussia under
the ad-ministration of Frederick the
Great. The Landschaft, or land
mortgage bank, was flrst originated
with the organization ol rural credit
banks under the auspices of the Prussian Government. The Prussian Government had realized that the improvement of lands and the development- of agriculture could not he possible or permanent unless the owners
of the lands had a financial system
devised for negotiating loans, based
upon Improved lands as security, on
long time and at a low rate of interest. Tt was also realized that tbe
commercial banks could not undertake long time loans, as their resources depended upon short time deposits on current or open account.
Finally the Government, being the
moat deeply interested in the welfare
of its ■ agriculture, undertook to organize and capitalize tbe flrst Ian Is-
chaft hank, and glvo to the Innd
owners an opportunity to hypothecate their landa as security and secure longtime loans at an interest
rate of not more than 4 per cent.
In those days the great tracts of
land were owned by the nobility and
the decree of the Government required that all land owners in each district or province should be held jointly liable to the bank on loans granted to any single owner.
The system created tbe first step
toward a plan of the unlimited   lia
bility iu borrowing money wblch bus
grown into sucb wide popularity at
tbe present time, especially In the
organization of the Landschaft and
the Reiflelsen system of banks. TheBe
land mortgage banks may be institutions created and capitalized by tbe
Government, or they may be joint
stock institutions organized for making money on the capital instead as
well as handling loaim ou [arm property. These Government banks, or
rural co-operative banks, declare no
dividends, the profit accumulating going each year into tbe reserve funds.
The method of operation in these
land mortgage banks Ib usually as
follows: Should a landowner wish
to borrow on his land, Bay, $1,000,
on long t me, he makes his needB
known to the bank. The bank thereupon investigates the real value of
thc land to be mortgaged, including
the improvements and the sum
sought for is granted un a basis of
50 per cent of the market value of
the property offered as security.
On fifty-year loans thc interest is
usually 4 per cent, the "amortization," added to the expense or commission charged by the hank, brings
the entire interest charged to 5J per
cent, per annum, while the amount of
the principal is reduced each year.
The titles to all real estate are guaranteed by the Government, hence
there can be n0 flaw in tbe titles.
When the land mortgage bas been
filed and accepted by the bank with
the practical consent of the Government debentures or bonds are issued
to the (ull amount of the loan,
j These bonds are delivered to the
farmer who can go out and market
I them; in ordinary cases the bank
pays to the borrower at once the
amount of tbe loan and sells the
bonds itself.
This peculiar mortgage loan is (or
fifty years on the "amortization
plan." The term "amortization" Is
payment on installment plan, so
that at tha end of the period (or
which the loan is made debt Ib cancelled.
These mortgage bonds are issued
without any fixed time limit and are
never redeemed until the mortgages
against which they are issued are
paid up. It rarely happens that tbe
mortgage is paid up. In Prussia only 2i per cent on the mortgage
bonds have ever been retired.
These bonds are thrlw guaranteed;
by the mortgage loans, by the entire
assets of the bank and by the Government of the district in which tbey
are issued.
Although the rural credit bank system was originated in Germany, I
think Italy is farther advanced in its
social aspect. Throughout the European countries this credit bank system is a Messing to the small landowners. It helps them and enables
tbem to cultivate their Httle patches
of green, but those who are without
land are absolutely helpless, and are
referred to aB the irredeemable.
The Italian Government is not only ably assisting this class at prop-
ertllcSB people, but even laying great
Plans, whereby they will be able to
till their own lands. The Italian
Government is securing miles of
tracts of land which it will cut up
into small (arm lauds and invite the
landless population to cultivate them
under a long year rent syBtem, The
rent will be twice as much as tbe interest on the amount of capital
which was needed for the purchase of
the land. After the regular interest
and expenses have been deducted the
remaining percentage will be held as
a deposit account and when this sum
is equal to tbe amount the Government paid' (or that particular piece
of land the peasant will be given a
(ree title.
The agriculture o( Hungary certainly lacks the intenslveness which
is so marked in Italy. Rural Hungary cannot be compared with any
other country in Europe; it is more
like rural America.,
Like tbe United States Hungary
(or many years has been a land of
immigrants. Wars and the sudden
increase of her foreign population
having prevented assimilation in
Hungary, the Magyars, Germans,
Slovaks, Roumanians, Lithuanians,
Croatins, Servians and Saxons, all
cling to their nationalities and languages. So it is difficult to start a
uniform movement in Hungary. The
serf In Hungary was not freed until
thc nobility had become bankrupt.
But despite these handicaps the Hungarian Government has constructed a
system of agricultural credit both
for mortgage loans and (or short
time credit needs of the farmers
which has proven of value. Government aid bas played an Important
part in tbe work.

DR. RUTLEDGE'B REPORT.
Your Worship and Gentlemen ol the
Council:
In connection witb the dairies ol
our district, I am pleased to aay
they are Improving considerably, and
are trying as quickly aa possible to
comply with the requirements of our
city bylaw, and generally are in a
very sanitary condition.
The premises that were somewhat
deficient at the commencement are
now very much Improved. By reno I
vatlng and rebuilding they will soon
he on a par with their neighboring
dairymen.
The milk haa Improved In quality
which is shown In the following
tests:
Mr. Atchison is thc highest with
4.3 per cent.
Mr. Pringle Is neit with 4.2 per
cent.
Mr. Taylor neit with 4.1 per cent.
Mr. Austin comes neit with 3.6 per
cent.
Mr. McDonald and Mr. llardgett
are equal with 8 per cent.
I am convinced thnt In handling
the milk In cans the customers can
not be treated equal, or It Is Impossible for them all to receive the same
I quality of milk, sh the customers
] served oil the top of the can get the
cream, and those receiving it further j
down get practically skim milk, ln
Mr. McDonald's ense, I too't the earn |
pie trom a can about half full, with
the result that lt wns a low test ami
much the same with Mr. Bardgett's,
ami   while I don't   think those men
are trying to deceive tbe people, tbey
ore handling the milk in cans and it
is impossible to give the people the
same quality of milk, and it is also
impossible to get a lair Bample ol
milk.
This, in my opinion, is another
reason why the cans should be condemned, besides being the moBt unsanitary  mode of handling mlic.
In collecting a sample Irom tbe
bottles I pour bait of it Into another bottle and shake both of them,
and then mix tbem so I am sure of
getting a lair sample, which is impossible from the cans.
I am pleased to know tbat the
neighboring city of Nelson have now
taken up the question ol milk regulation, and are now putting through
a very stringent bylaw, saying that
milk must be handled in sealed bottles, In any quantity of one quart
or less, and 1 am sure they will tlml
lt will Improve tbe dairy milk in thc
city.
I have invited the council to come
around with me some even.ng and I
will drive them to the different dairies, and they can then see tor them-
selvos the condition ol the same, and
I hope they will be at liberty to accompany me.
Since I appeared hefore you last
month I have made ten visits to the
different dairies, and made six tests
of milk.

Orange Celebration
(Specially Contributed.)
Weather conditions notwithstanding, the celebration af the 224th anniversary of the Battle of the Boyue
held here Monday was a splendid
success and a credit to the Cranhrook
Lodge who were responsible for the
day. Visiting brethren were present
from points far and near, and as the
last train with visitors departed at
three-thirty the following morning all
seemed agreed in saying tbat it was
one of the best Orange walks they
had UptQt.  in  tho   interior uf  H.   O.
The GlorioiiB Twelfth falling on
Sunday, the local lodge decided to
hold their celebration on the Monday. This being the case all decorations, placing of arches, etc., had to
be done on Monday before the arrival of the visiting lodges. At G a.
in. a portion of the decoration committee were out in tbe bush cutting
green boughs to decorate the arch.

COMMUNICATION,
To the Editor Prospector.
Sir,—As more or less of a newcomer to this nourishing little city
it has appeared to me tbat there is,
to its completeness, one vital thing
lacking—a- want which 1 am certain
it only needs the co-operation of a
few spirited and right-minded members of the community to remove. 1
refer to the absence of a public library. I am aware tbere are those
wbo will say, "The floating population of this city would not justify
tbe establishment of a library." But
surely out of a population of 4,500
there are a sufficient number of permanent residents to make a library
a necessity? I need not here go into the question of why tbe establishment of one IS a necessity! No
one will deny it. Suffice it to say
tbat there exists no' town in B. C,
with half thiB city'B population, and
I am sure, with one-qliarter its average intelligence and erudition, that
does not boast this necessary ad
junct to its public buildings.
I trust.that this matter will at no
late date be taken up in earnest   and
that CranlVrook will not for long suffer this lamentable want to be felt.

Credit Banks
(Comtinued from Page One)
The mortgage credit institutions of
Hungary are neither purely co-operative nor strictly private. The oldest
and most important bank in Hungary is the Hungarian Land Mortgage Institute founded in 1863. The
Government contributed $200,000 of
the capital stock of the company
and the balance waB subscribed by
"founders," who, however, were only
required to pay 10 per cent, ot tbe
o mount of the stock for which   they
nu I .nc iHicil. Ttinite fouml«ra receive a
dividend limited to 5 per cent, of
their subscriptions. Besides the
founders, every lundownor wbo placed a mortgage with tWs bank is a
member of tbe bank. Only those who
have a mortgage indebtedness to the
bank of at least $20,000 have any
voice in the affairs of tbe baiftc, The
other members may elect representatives to the general meeting. As soon
as a farmer's mortgage expires his
membership in the'bank dies.
Under this form of organization
the Hungarians attempted io Becurc
the co-operative principle of representation of the borrowing farmers
while at the same time placing the
greater part of the power in the
hands of the founders. Only the
founders have tbe power to elect the
president nnd tbe board of control.
The manntf-ment has fallen into thc
hands of a few men, however, and
they have so managed its affairs for
thc public goi/d that it hns satisfactorily met the mortgage demands of
the Hungarian landowners, with this
fault, however, that its busirteBS is
carried almost exclusively witb large
landowners.
The process of securing money to
lend to landowners is that of Belling
bonds equal in amount to thc mortgages placed witb the bank and secured by tbe mortgages, and, secondly by the capital reserve funds of
the bank.
Tho failure of the Hungarian Lan-1
Mortgage Institute to meet demands
of small farmers led to the organizn
lion of the Hungarian National
Hmall Holding Institute but with the
provision in its chapter thut it shall
not grant loans to large landowners
until the demands of the small own
ers had been satisfied.
Tbis bank also grants loans to
peasant farmers when a big estate is
subdivided among many holders.
Mortgage loans aro granted for only
50 per cent, of th? value of the land
In Hungary hut it has been found
that whon any hig eBtate is sub-divided, the income from the land is so
Increase! that it is snfe to loan up
to two-thirds of the value.
In this way the peasant farmers
are aided in buying big estates.
Personal credit. Ol Hungarian farm
ers is granted through co-operative
societies, Which are united tn the Hun
garinn Central Credit Co-operative
Hoclety. Every one of the local societies deposits its surplus funds with
the Central Society, whlrh lends to
other societies needing money,
The mitral CO-Operatlve bodies exert their influence In organising new
local co-operative societies, prevent
unlawful combinations, and assume
tbe responsibility thnt tho local man-
agern properly conduct their organl
zations. They also conduct a valuable educational institution through
traveling lecturers and official periodical publications and by printing
and distributing special documents
treating agriculture and co-operative
organisation. The Oeneral German
Association of Rogusa is specially
noteworthy  in this connection,
It should not be overlooked that
the Austrian rural co-operative societies are based upon the State aided
system round also in France. The
Provincial Governments make grants
of from $40 to $50 to cover Initial
expenses of organizing and extend
loanB for long periods without interest. As an example of this aid from
the State which the Austrian societies enjoy, the Diet of Galtcia In isyo
placed at the disposal of the Provincial Government a sum equal to
about 5400,000. to be used to further
the work of the co-operative societies, and ten years later established
the Provincial Bank for co-operative
societies at Leopold which now administers the fund.
One of the most interesting investigations of the American commission outside of the field of credit,
was made when the famous co-oper-
atfve live etotft and meat market of
St. Marx of   Vienna was visited.
About sixty years ago, so they
learned, the live stock market trade
of Vienna fell into the hands of a
limited number of cattle dealers who
monopolized it to the injury of both
the producers and the consumers. To
break up this monopoly the city government of Vienna established a municipal meat foundation making obligatory the extension of credit to the
purchasers, whr> in this instance were
the butchers.
Out of this system grew the present live stock commission business.
Which followed the dissolution of the
"foundation" in 1870. From thiB experience the city thought it well to
again attempt a foundation along
more carefully planned' line*, and, in
1884, though the General Bank for
Deposits, put in operation the present formation, the principal features
of which are, tlrst, acting ns legal
commissioner for the sale of all live
stock, sent to the market, and aocond, the granting ot personal loans
secured by promissory notes    or   by
(lateral, consisting of live stock on
band to the butchers doing business
in the market so as to enable them
to purchase live stock for slaughtering.
In other words, the foundation assumes, for a commission of ti per
tfant. on cattle and 5 per cent on
small live stock, the responsibility of
Collecting the purchase money from
the buyers and of turning it over to
thr sellers on the same dny. This iB
done through thc Issuance of wbat iB
termed "closing certificates," which
must be presented to the foundation
'and upon which thc purchaser pays
and the seller collects the amounts
i due.
The success with which this foundation met has influenced other cities, such as I'ilsen and Innisbruck,
I to imitate it. It should bc understood thnt theBe foundations only re-
jlate to slaughter stock markets,
j These co-operative societies are planning to breed and draft animals.
Not alone has Vienna tbe largest
I meat foundation in Europe, but the
.largest co-operative dairy in the
iwcrld. ThiB dairy is a co-operative
tsociety with limiDKl liability, organized in 1880-1881, and delivering in
, the years 1811-1913 about 38,000,000
iquarts of milk and cream.
] This society owns 159 sub-depots
for the sale of mils, which are locat*
led all over Vienna and in Several
other neighboring towns which together operate 210 carts in making
local deliveries. The1 main building
incloses an extensive court which Is
lnrge enough for more than 100 heavy delivery wagons to stand in line.
\ TheAj are stables for 212 horses,
above which are sleeping, smoking
and dressing rooms for employees,
land a lunchroom controlled by the
society where officials and* employees
can get wholesome food at very low
[prices. The society employs about
1,200 persons and in 1918 had 631,000
members,
i A physical laboratory ami a bac-
terlologloal laboratory are maintain*
!od by tbe organisation. A special
baby's milk department is conducted
by the society, when- the milk Is
I scientifically pasteurized and made
ready for direct consumption   by the
Infants of   Vienna,
Condensed milk, butter aad cheese
nre also manufactured from tha leftover milk, each department, showing
a steady annual growth.   N. V. Call.
Stephens-Broughton
Under the happiest of auspices with
brilliant sunshine and in the presence
of many friends and well wishers,
Miss Edith Isabel Stephens, eldest
daughter of ltev. and Mrs. W. E.
Stephens, was united in marriage
to Mr. J. F. Broughton, who is well
known around town, and especially In
certain fraternal order circles.
The ceremony took place at Knox
Church at 8.80 p. m. on Wednesday,
July 15th, the Rev, W. K. Thomson
officiating.
Tin' church was very prettily decorated, many (lowers lending their
beauty and fragrance to the delight
(ul air of the summer's afternoon.
The bride, tastefully attired in
white silk, with Edelweiss lace trimmings, and wearing a pretty white
hat to match, was supported by her
father, Hev. W. B, Stephens, and bor
two sisters, Miss Grace and Miss
Ruth Stephens were in attendance as
lindesmaids, both Of whom were
charmingly dressed in white Bilk
crepe.
At the conclusion ot the ceremony,
tiie bride and bridegroom proceeded
the family and guests in an nut.mio
btld to the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Hamid Btevens, .eldest brother ot the
bride.
Soon atter Ave o'clock the guests.
to   the   number   of   twenty Iwo,    after
having been photographed sat down
to a dainty wedding breakfast, serv
ed at an artistically decorated table
and for nearly au hour appreciative
tribute was paid to the many dell
i asles   irepared
Mr. R, Roberts of the C.P.R. Oalgary office staff, who 'had travelled
from Calgary to act as the bride-
g ii :\ s hest num, started a round
of speeches Ln a few well chosen and
happy sentences, concluding by calling for a standing toast, to the health
and happiness of Mr. and Mrs. J. F.
Broughton.
Mr. J. F. Broughton responded and
was followed by Rev. W. K Thomson
who offered splendid advice to tbe
newly wedded couple in a vein of
quaintly mixed humor and seriousness.
Later in the evening, they were
joined by the young people of Knox
Church Literary aud Debating Society, and the augmented party carried
on the festivities to a late hour with
music, instrumental and vocal, interspersed with many laughable games.
The regard in which Mr. and Mrs.
Broughton are held in Cranbrook was
evidenced by many gifts or beauty
and  utility.
The happy couple will reside in the
city and have taken up residence on
Cranhrook  street.

station to meet the lodges from tbe
east. Here as tbe train pulled iu the
Cranbrook Band wbo bad been engaged for the day, played the Maple
Leaf Forever. It was still raining
smartly aud Director Boyce quickly
swung the visiting lodges into line.
Fernie bagpipers and drummers Ilrst,
their lady True Blue lodge next, with
Fernie L. O. L. in the rear. The
band led the march to the hall playing the Protestant Boys. Arriving nt
the hall banners were put away, and
9-ne hour allowed for lunch. Rooms
and parlors had been reserved for
tbe lady True Blue lodges.
Sharp at two o'clock Director
Boyce, assisted by the director of ceremonies of the Fernie lodge, lined
the brethren and siBters up for tin?
grand parade. First came Brother
Falconer (assisted by a boy scout
In uniform), then King William on
the white horse, decorated with the
colors. Five automobiles profusely
decorated then swung into line, filled
to the limit with the members of the
Lady True Blue Lodge of Fernie. The
six members of the Fernie bagpipers
band followed, leading their own
lodge. Tbe Cranbrook band was
next. Then came the banner of thc
local lodge, the banner being carried
by four boy scouts In uniform. In
the centre of the Cranbrook lodge
in the march were their two fife
nnd drum bands. Tbe parade was of
such length that all the bands were
playing at once without confllctlon.
The walk was through considerable
mud but the rain was now letting
up and the sun began to Bbinc. The
march wns brought to an end by going through the arch at the handstand and the members together
with (i very large gathering of citizens took their seats and listened
with pleasure to B bright program
of speeches and music.
Worshipful Master R, H. Garrett ot
the Cranbrook lodge wan chair mnn
of the meeting and first called ou
Rev. W. K. Thomson to open the
meeting with prayer. Mayor Taylor
gave the address of welcome as fol-
lows "Ladlew and Gentlemen of the
Orange Association: h. affords nm
much pleasure to web nine you to
■ Oranbrook on this, tho 224th anniversary of the Battle of Lho Hoyne.
jl trust, you will enjoy yoursolVOB and
have a pleasant time during your
stay in Cranbrook, and thnl you may
have a kindly recollection ol your
| visit which we hope may I,.- frequently repeated. Ab there arc Bpeakors to
address you on the subject most   In
teresting to you and that quite a
number of games are to be contested I will not further trespass on the
time at your disposal. I trust thut
you may have a happy recollection of
this day iu Cranhroos."
J, F. Smith of Craubrook Lodge,
ai*i a member of the order for nearly half a century, was the next
speaker, and gave nn historical
sketch of tho Roman oppression in
Great Britain iu the sixteen hundreds
uud how the Protestants had sent for
William Prince of Orange who drove
James out of,Ireland, and with him
the domineering power of the church
of Rome. William then became King
and the Protestant faith was established and has since been maintain
ed,
ltev. w. E. Dunham, while not an
Orangeman himself, was glad to
Identify himself with the cause, and
spoke nicely  pn "what   Protestantism
is mid why it is." "Protestantism"
he Bald, "is a protestation of nny
limitation  ot  the  word of  Cod."
ltev w. K Thomson referred to his
sermon to tho Orangemen ihe even
lug   before   when   be had besought
them and nil otliers to consecrate
their   lives   to   Cod,   when   they   would
be sun' to win. Protectants wore
too weak kneed. To,, often thoy were
hypocrites,   n.- pointed   from   where
he spoke   toithe St,  Mary's   separate
school erected only lust year for tho
i'mhohes   and   explained that   two
thirds   of    the    money    that   built it
wns    protectant   money.    It   was    al
right for the Protestants to be kindly but   they  should  be sincere   first.
In the parade which  had just   taken
place     our   policemen    didn't   force
Catholics; to doff thetr hats   as   bad
been done to  Protestants iu   Quebec
: only a   few  weoks ago in a    Corpus
: Christ i  procession.     France, one   of
, the   fairest   countries   iu tbe world,
was drifting into atheism, Spain waB
■ In ruins, and so was the history   of
; all countries where the Roman Catholic religion had held sway.     Romish
: faith had been  driven out     of    other
j countries and were trying to get hold
of Canada.   In thiB fair land, and in
j the twentieth century they    were   at
i their   meetings    toasting the    Pope
ilrst and    in    all ways putting    the
; Pope   before   the King.   Protestants
must rally together but only by con-
, secrating    their lives to  God   could
jthey win.
<    During the program music was ren-
! dered   by   the Fernie pipers,    Cran-
i brook band, tbe local fife   and drum
i hands and W.  J.  Scott   of Wyclifle,
who for yeara had headed Orange parades in Belfast where he was known
as  "The    Lone    Piper."   Mr,  Scott,
wc omitted to mention, played   bis
pipes in    the   Urand Parade as did
alBo Bro. J. F. Smith.    Mr.   Scott
slso headed the church parade   Sunday evening playing sacred music.
The athletic events immediately followed and proved most successful.

WITHOUT Horatio Nelson, England would have been invaded and perhaps conquered by Napoleon. At Trafalgar he smashed forever the Bench
Emperor's hope of creating a naval power. Never was man more
idolized and bdoved—not only by all of England's people who breathlessly
awaited news of his telling victories, but by every man of his fleet. A true
Anglo-Saxon, he detested tyrannous powers and legislative usurpations df every
kind. He was particularly opposed to prohibitive enactments governing die diet of
his men,who,like him,enjoyed Barley-Malt brews, SUED ag thSE fathers did fer
countless fenerations before. Good beer, according to Lord Nelson,has ewer been
good (bod. Budweiser Deer for 57 years has been die product of an institution holding the highest ideals known

THE COMPANY formed for development and
big earnings.
THE COMPANY soundly organized.
THE COMPANY whose officers and directors
have a good name.
THE COMPANY whose lands are among the
choicest cf all oil prospects today, barring none.
THE COMPANY whose drilling site has been
selected and approved by several renowned geologists.
THE COMPANY whose capitalization, as
compared to the valuation of its leasehold,.is, we
believe, the most conservative and fairest of any
offered today. (The larger the capitalization slice
of bread, the thinner the dividend butter will have
to be spread in order to go around).
THE COMPANY that is buying the oil and
gas rights to 8430 acres, more or less, at an average cost of only 32 cents per acre in cash and $1.45
per acre in stock. Total average cost to Company, $1.77 per acre. This was made possible by
early securing, before the values of properties
were known.
CAPITAL 150,010.01
1,000,000 Shares, par value 5c.
335,400 shares to be paid on all lands.
664,600 shares in treasury.
The Company in which
the people have control.
Compare the above .facts with the claims of
other companies who solicit your attention.
Statement f.om the Secretary, pending Auditor's
report;
Receipts from sale of stock
total about $40,000
Disbursements total about 23,000
Cash on hand $17,000
All bills and obligations to July 1 have been

irons, horses, camp equipments, etc., all paid to

Not a single share has been issued to anyone,

issued until the treasury is well fortified for all expenses in connection with developing No. 1 well.
-STATEMENT OF SECRETARY.
"From fairly authentic sources it is reported
that Ralph Arnold, the eminent oil geologist, who
recently visited the Flathead, is well pleased
with the possibilities of the Flathead as a future
oil field. Mr. Arnold's report has
not been given out officially, but I
believe that holders of Flathead oil
leases can look forward to a boom
in these leases and stocks as soon as
Mr. Arnold's report is given out,"
stated George W. Snyder, superintendent for the Flathead Petroleum
Co., who was in the office Saturday.
Any company having 12,820 acres, more or
less, of oil lands, 8430 acres of which are costinR
only $1.77 per acre, should stand a capital stock
of $1,000,000. Now there are 1,000,000 shares
of the par value of 5 cents—$50,000 capital stock
—so it really seems that these 5-cent par value
shares should today have a market value of $1
per share instead of  15 cents'
Colonel Ed. Mann, President, left Wednesday night
to remain at the drilling
camp until No. 1 well is
completed.
The Flathead has every indication of a gusher
field, and it looks like only a short time till the
great excitement will be on.
Drills start shortly, at which time stock will
advance to
25 cents
or
better
The more you study the facts of this company,
the more it looks like the "PEOPLE'S COMPANY," and the one to make big returns to the
people.
The stock which we have underwritten will
likely be subscribed in the next few days, then
no more treasury stock can be had at any price
at this time. The directors are reserving balance
to net company probably $1 per share.

Notjte to the Electors
By-law No. 13S authorising the raising of 1110,000,00 for the purpose of improving the water system of the City was passed by the Electors in the month of
June last. The debentures under this by-law were secured by the Water Charges
and Revenue of the Cjty. The City Council made an excellent sale of the debentures under this by-law, namely, 3194, but tbe purchasers require the additional
guarantee of the general revenue of the municipality. This in no way increases
the taxation required to meet the debenture payments but as the purchasers of the
debentures have asked for this additional security, the Council have deemed it
prudent to agree with their request and are accordingly submitting a further by-law
on the 13rd of July complying with the request of the purchasers who are anxious
to take up the bonds on 01 before August ist. A copy of the proposed by-law will
be found in this issue.

The Panama
The rate established lor carrying
cargo through the Panama Canal,
{1.20 per ton, ia regarded by shipping companies on the North Pacific
coast aa sufficiently low to result in
great benefit to British Columbia in
the transportation ol products ol the
Province to the eastern markets, according to Consul General R. E.
Mansfield. This is especially true of
copper and other minerals. The toll
assessment iB made on the basis of
the vessel ton, the standard measure
of which is 100 cu. It. of Bpace, and
not on a shipping ton of 2240 IbB.
The canal toll charges will therelore
add a comparatively smaller amount
per net ton weight to the frelgnt
rate on commodities of lesser bulk
than on thore occupying greater
space.
A ton of copper, large uuantitioB of
which are shipped Irom British Co
lumhla, occupies only 18 cu. ft. ol
space, bo that .approximately 5. tons
of this metal can be carried in 1
vessel-ton space of 100 cu. ft., which

cts. per ton weight.

on the mineral wealth ot British Columbia, contained the following:
It is now becoming more generally
realized the great heritage we possess in the mineral deposits so generously distributed over tbe greater
portion of British Columbia. Mining
has been the foundation of wealth

ver. copper, and iron is creating the
raw material of money and the. mining of the world's metal la the life
hlood of modern industry. A country oi great mines always becomes a
country of great industries, wealth,
influence and power. Cecil Rhodea,
the man who built up an empire for
Croat Britain, and who made riches
for hundreds of hts followers, paid a
remarkable tribute to mining in one
ol his speeches, which' briefly amn-
miirized, was aa loliows: "I have
made a great study of the question,
and have hnd statistics not only of
(ireat Britain, hut of the whole
world cnrefully compiled, so that I
may not lie in error, which shows
that mining properly conducted offers
greater inducements than any business in tho world.
"Thla Investigation that I have
had made lurther shows that even
farming is more risky than mining,
that '.i'i per cent more people lose
money and fall in tbe mercantile
business than In mining, that 17 per
rent more people lose money and fail
In lho huiKing business than in mining, and that more peoplo lose money and fail proportionately In. any of
the professions than mining. Mining is the backbone ot all wealth,
though of course you can lou> money
In mining II you put it into a proposition tbat Is worthless, just H
you would lose money If you Invested It in a store that had no merchandise, which means that you muat
investigate as you would any other
business,"
It Is the concensus of opinion that
British Columbia Is on the eve of
the greatest mining revival the province hns known, and that the province may hnve the full hincllt of the
promised renewal of mining activity
It behooves every man who has the
mining industry at heart to keep it
clean from unsound promotions.
There nre enough resources for legitimate work that warrant the eipen-
dlture of capital for the development
ol our mineral wealth till British Columbia takes Its place among the
leading mining countries of the
world.
