"The Qctopii of Canada"
From an Editorial in the Toronto "Saturday Night"
of January 11th, 1» 13
Many a reader ol Holy Writ bas
thrilled ns be read the fltory ol David and the Philistines, and single
handed, liln overthrow or the wicked
Goliath. The tule ban grown more
precious the further lt rooodcs Into
the obscurity of the ages that are
((one, and there seems to he. a tooling
that auch great enterprise.* were all
conOnod to an earlier era. Once In a
long while an incident ocenrs to
■how that there are still heroes born
of the order of David, ready to attack tbe Go.iathB of a revised version. There iH a very uood example
in this province today of a fight
just as unequal hh the old scriptural
bout referred to. The modem David
Ktands forth in the person of Mr. A.
B, Watts, president of tha Wattsburg Lumber Company, Ltd., which
has mills at Wattsburg and Proctor,
B.C., while his entrenched and powerful enemy is alleged to be the
Canadian Pacific Railway. The fight
Is on to the linish. While David's
weapon was a sling, Mr. Watts la de
pending on publicity and tbe Dominion Railway Commission. Tn regard
to tho former, be believes he is relying on a broken reed, tie charges
that many of the newspapers in tbis
province are subsidized. I would
not be surprized it there were some
truth in the assertion. For the most
part the newspapers in British Columbia are young and struggling enterprises, and like to light on the
side ol the strongest battalions.
The C.P.R. bus had a hold on tbe
province for a quarter of a century,
or practically ever since it amounted
to anything. Tt insisted on much
belore it would run the line across
the Rockies, and in many of the B.C.
towns and cities through which the
line runs, including Vancouver, the
Company own about everything. To
fair, however, it te only right to admit that the province owes much of
Its development to the C.P.R. The
rapid development of the province
and the inability of the Company to
keep up with tbe growth, have produced much bitterness against the
line, and for some years the average
Britiah Columbian bus devoted a
portion of his evening prayer to a
petition for much needed railway
competleion. The prayer will soon
be answered, and it then remains to
be seen If the O.P.R. will continue
its present attitude west of the Ruck
iee. Up to the present it has no
competition in the matter of freight
rates, and the charge has been made
frequently that this province hus
been discriminated against both in
passenger and freight rates. The
complaints have been loudest from
the interior, Bven today, freight te
shipped from Montreal to Vancouver
and then back from here to points in
the interior a few hundred miles east
cheaper than if shipped directly to
the interior designation point. Mr.
Watts is one of the few men In a
business where the company could
put on the screws wbo has had the
courage to make his complaints public. He charges more thnn discrimination in freight rates, und he bas
carried his troubles to the Railway
Commission several times. Now he
alleges that the company is retalia-
ting by refusing to give him cars for
I the   transportation   of   his   lumber.
The feeling
toward him
the Nelson
week   aayi.:
In   his    own   district
is voiced editorially In
Daily    News which this
"Mr.   A.  IS.  Watts    has
several important matters belore the
meeting of the Railway Commission
held here. Mnny of these were matters of public interest which Mr.
Watts took up without any possibility of any direct return or benefit to
himself more than to the public generally.
The Railway Commission sat at
Nelson recently. Mr, Watts presented a petition ns' Ing that the Commission shall be given extended powers and jurisdiction, and that it
shall have tbe power to compel railways to recompense th:se who suffer
loss t>y the Injustice perpetrated by
railway corporations. Also, that the
Commission be given power to Investigate the financial methods
adopted by railways, and that no appeal be allowed against the decision
of tho Board except by permission ol
the Premier of Canada. He alleged
discrimination in the distribution of
cars to shippers, and that the compnny had not fulfilled promises made
to the applicant and to the lnt j
Judge Mabea iu toe matter of restoring certain roads. Orders desired by
Mr. Watts included that all ra lway
companies in Canada be compelled to
supply small box c-irs of from Bis to
ten tons capacity; that they be compelled to restore public roads destroyed by them; that the C.P.R. be
compelled to restore a steamer lauding and buildings alleged to have
been destroyed by the company; that
railway companies be compelled to
provide proper cattle guards and
crossings and fence their right-of-
way through settled districts; that
the C.P.R. be compelled to produce
certain witnesses who are alleged to
have been shipped to Italy, etc. He
nlso urged that the Railway Commission use its influence in Investigating and making known to the public the amount of "watered stool,
disposed .of Uy various railway corporations," and in preventing the C.
P.R. from securing a further extension of time for the completion of
the Crows' Nest Pubs Railway. He
also asked the Commissioners as to
the most effective way of preventing
the B.C. government from paying the
C.P.R. for the return of the land
grants which he claimed thc company never earned. In support of
his clnim of discrimination in the
matter of supplying cars, Mr. WattB
said he had experienced a shortage in
July, August and September last,
and asserted the company has made
a dead s't against him ever since he
had brought the railway before the
Railway Commission four years ago.
Tn July he received 17 cars, in August 20 cars and in September 19
cars. In October he was kept for 10
days without cars, but the Company
had rushed in 18 cars after he had
wired to ths Railway Commission,
Thc Commission issued an order that
M. J. McCaul, the inspector for the
Board in British Columbia and Alberta, Bhould make a thorough inquiry into the charge. Decisions on
the other pointB raised were reserved
There ts no doubt that Mr. Watts
desorves credit for his campaign, and
he has earned tho gratitude of many
business men iu his own Province.

On Tuesday evening Crescent Lodge

C„ Noble Blnna from Trail Lodgo.
The hova received onlv verv short

brothers assembled listened to a very
Instructive address from their Drre.
Winn and Blnna. Mr. Winn surveyed
tbe general progress of tho lodges
throughout the Provinces; he also
threw out snme very valuable suggestions to the local boys for the
better working of their local lodge.
Mr. Blnns who, Mr. Winn says is his
father ln lodge work, demonstrated
to the members present a higher education in the work in which they
were engaged. The members resulted
(n obtaining a higher respect (or the
worMngn of the order and for the
Order it aroused a greater interest
in the hearts of those present which
will not be forgotten for a long time
to come.
The hour being late the Inatalta-
tlon nf officers was posponed until

several points of tbe Order and
their country.
Tbo evening was a splendid success' several of the older members o'.
tbe Order attended and it is hoped

The Convention of the Associated
Hoards of Trade of Eastern British
Columbia met In tbe oldest city in
the district, Kort Btoelo, this year.
Tbe President In his opening remarks
paid tribute to the reception which
had been afforded tbem and the pains
which had been made for the coin-
fort of ull the delegates during the
Convention. "It is with a strong
hopo that only tho Utmost good will
hi derived from these meetings and
from thc several resolutions which
will bo passed, it is to bo hoped
that thc inllueuce therefrom will be
of nssistunte to the whole of the
Kootenays for all time."
The meeting was called to order on
Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock
sharp. With the business sagacity
which one ls expected only to display
in private business the delegates set
to work on the numerous resolutions
which had been previously handed to
the secretary. With methodical persistency the several resolutions were
proceeded with, the delegates1 in the
meantime not forgetting to thrash
out all the pros and cons ol the
principles involved in each.
It must be perfectly understood by
the lay reader that this convention
is composed of men of all grades ol
opinion, men who are staunch toriee
ns well aa men of staunch rahlcal
opinions lo their private life, rub
shoulder to shoulder, differences of
all kinds cease to exist; result, all
the different suggestions brought forward and discussed are gone over
With unbiased minds and taken from
an independent view point.
Thc Convention ol tbe Associated
Hoards of Trade can well he termed
the Government of the Kootenays.
Space alone hinders us from paying
full tribute to the addresses made by
the various delegates; G. O. Buchanan assisted the meetings with some
very strong and forceful arguments;
R. L. T. Galbraith also had the experience of on old parliamentarian
and save some very good advice to
the younger administrators; Mr. H.
t.elgeiich, the first Vice-president,
look a leading part iu many of the
arguments arising out of the resolutions. The Resolution committee
wna under the leadership of G. Low-
enberg and their effective work was
much appreciated by the Convention.
Tt greatly facilitated the work in
hand and was the moans of helping
lhe members to complete the work
of tbe Convention within a reasonable time. The Convention closed at
6 p.m. Wednesday, January 22nd, to
again gather together in congress at
Kaslo next year on the 4th Wednesday in September, where it was hoped Cranbrook, Fernie and Rlko would
join hands and be present. Golden,
It is understood, huB already given
bor consent to be affiliated. With
this combination of cities the affiliated Boards will have a prestage
with the powers that be which ie undeniable and will carry much weight,
it is only by gathering under one
head that truly effective work
can be done and with the leading
cities of the Kootenays becoming
amalgamated the good which will
accrue to everybody In the district
will lie impossible to estimate.

it was at in p.m. when the representatives «s guests <>f tbe Port
Steele Board of Trade gathered
around tbe table of the Imperial
Hotel to onjoy a most sumptuouB
ban -not. The decorations Of the hall
were excellent und the table., were
weighed down with all the uood
things that make life worth living.
H, L. T. Galbrajth made a perfect host anil was really an entertain
er in himself. After having partaken of tho good things, Mr, Gal
bralth reviewed a little of the history of Fort Steele, its hardships,
its succeBt.es, its downfall, and nov
upon tbe absolute completion of tho
Kootenay Central Railway—and he
gave out thc Information that it
was on tho assured word of Sir
Thomas ShnuneBsey that the Kootenny Central would be completed
and running bcf< re the close of tho
year—Fort Steele was about to come
into its own and enjoy a prosperity
unprecedented in tho history of the
district. Mr. A, D. Fenwick, who is
now visiting in tbe old country, is
Constantly talking of the possibilities
of Steele, and has Interested some
Ilngllsh capitalists to tbo extent
that shortly, when lie returns to
this country, he will bring Bovernl
well positioned business men as company to Steele in which district thoy
come with the Intention gl euttllug.
"Our Guests" was tbe Ilrst toast
on the list und Mr. Oalbralth coupled with this the mimes of Messrs.
Lowenberg, xuic'.y, niuns. McHardy
Winn and Brady. Mr, Zwlcky was
enthusiastic over the future of Kaslo and gave to the guost assembled
a glowing description of the operations Of tbe mining industry in that
vicinity. Mr. McHardy refined to
the most magnificent hospitality
which bad bcen accorded to tbem,
and considered the visit to Fort
Steele the best ever made in the annals of the Associated Board.
"Our Dominion'; coupled with the
names of Q, o. Buchanan and A. K.
Watts. Mr. Uucham.il in his most
excellent address, spoke of the Dominion and gave an etqUlslto and general idea of the progress with which
the Dominion was at piis.nt making.
In his reference to the Fort Stoelo
district he said "Never before in my
life have I seen so wonderful a scene
as that which presented itself to me
this afternoon, one saw the lowlands
and tho gold-topped mountains, the
ntervehlhg hil h covered with brush
and forest lands bedecked with snow,
and the river Dozen with the cold of
winter as it lay stretched liefore my
eyes-it was wonderful."
Mr. A. K. Watts referred in his remarks to the great debt which the ■
Dominion owed to the Mother Coun-j
try and how the gift of a paltry $35,
000,000 was a mere flee-bite to what
should be paid. References wore
made to asking government assistance for those who take Up agricultural pursuits; also aB to whether
tiie Senate of Canada ahould be elective or not because of negative administration policies of the members
composing it.
"The Kootenay Central Railway"
was coupled with Mr. Hamiliton and
Mr. H. Drew. In introducing these
speakers, Mr. Galbraith said, that
the people of this valley owed a
deep debt of gratitude tu Sir William
Whystt mid Mr. Denniss for their assistance in bringing tho line to a
completing state.   "*' - -
Mr. Hnmillton said "The Kootenay Central is to become tbe chief
factor in developing the vnlley in
which we live."
Mr. H. Drew suid "A transporat-
tlon company cannot be successful
unless the people are successful,"
"The Province of British Columbia" was coupled wltb Pres. Fred
Starkey and Mr. J. P. Fink. Mr.
Starkey said "Tbe railway companies ore forgetting the interests of
tbe interior in tbe tremenduous policy of improving the Coast cities,
perhaps to the sacrifice of the interior interests." He also made reference to thc completion of the Panama ('anal and aaid: "The Crow's
Nest Pass and the Kootenny iu general will be the largest benefactors
owing to the passing through of the
grain from tbe prairie provinces."
"The Press' coupled with F. J.
Dcano, of the Cranbrook Herald; F.
M. Christian, of the Cranbrook prospector; and R. S. Garrett, wbo was
present in the interests of thc Nel-.
son News.
Mr. Den ne made reference to the
responsibilities of the newspapers of
today and bow difficult it was to
obtain just the right nmttcr to fill
tbe columns owing to bo many con-.
dict'tig opinions which must he
Mr, Christian endorsed the re
maris of the previous speaker und
suggested several methods how the
newspapers of today might become
valuable to the public lf they would
only take the opportunities offered
to them.
"Tbe Ladles" were coupled with
the names of Mossrs. Lafferty, Hal-
sail, tissie, Hint-well, Scott, Heaven,
and Lowenburg. The whole company
rose to their fuct nud sung that
good old song "For tbey are jolly
good fellows."
The successful evening came to a
close wltb the singing of Auld Lang
Syne and God Save the K,ng.
We give below a few excerpts from
tbe address of tho President at tho
opening of the convent on. Tbe suggestions thrown out will be helpful
to tho future administration of the
Hoard and will repay anyone of our
readers for the time expended in
tbeir reading.
It is with a deep sense of gratification I have the honor of opening
the l.Uh Annual Convention of thc
Associated Hoards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia, in tho city of
Fort Steele.
As you arc aware tbis is the first
time thc Hoards have had the opportunity of meeting hero, although tbe
Fort Steele Hoard Is ono of the oldest uiiiliatcd with the Association,
and slnco the inaugeiatlou of that
organisation bits regularly sent representatives to our Conventions, no
matter iu which part of the district they have been held. Further-
inoro their delegates, at nil times,
have displayed an intelligent nnd
comprehensive knowledge of matters
under discussion.
One renson, possibly, wby we have
not visited Fort Steele previously
(or   tbe   Annual   Convention    may
have been through thfl lack of direct railway connections. However ot
the Inst year's Convention, when
tbey submitted an imitation to
hold the 1313 meeting in Foit Steele
it was shown by the unanimous vote
that their ambitions were lully appreciated. The delegates will feel
tiiot tiie Associated Hoards of Trade
iu assisting by their voting for the
consumation of thn building oi tbo
Kootenay Central, have rendered n
valuable service to an Important
section of the country, which when
opened up will add greatly to the
wealth of tho district and tho province generally.
Knowing n good deal of the history of Fort Steele [rom 1897, and
very little regarding the years preceding that date, 1 thought it well
to verify facts and secure a correct
synopsis. With that object, iu view
1 requested my friend, Captain Armstrong, to furnish some data,
The following brief account will, l
am sure, make pleasant and Interesting rending:
Captain Armstrong says:—
"I   flaw   Fort Steele, or as it was
■then   named   Galbraith's   Ferry, on
I the   4th of February,  1883.   Another
1 kid, Jimmy Macauly, and myself bad
I como   from    Canal Flat.   It was ex-
I tremcly   colli,   and    though    we had
| horses,    we   were    forced to walk to
1 cep ourselves warm.   The trail was
unbroken    und    there    was about 18
inches of snow oa the ground*,
"Thc sole resideut of Fort Steele
was Tommy linker, a nephew of
Gulbvaith's, He was glad to sea us
aud he warmed us up und gave us
something to eat. After supper be
showed us a room with a Uro place,
where we might sleep for the nlgbt,
There were no beds or boughs or
blankets, though there was a roof,
and the tire place but no wood in
sight. We talked the proposition
over and dec.dvl-vhflt ..-.- would
sleep with Tommy, so wc wont back
into bis room and said tbat was
gQod enough for us; .ve dldu't want
an outside room i or a bath nor any
thing but this, so WC stayed.
"At this time Kootenay meant
Wild Horse. A letter addressed Kootonny found Its way after many days
Lo that mining camp four miles
from Fort Steele. It was to get
some of these letters that we had
come over 200 miles from Mobcrly
The mail was apparently delayed so
we waited there for nearly a month,
About the first of March, Ned Bray
came in from Bonner's Ferry and
brought us ihn first news we bad received of the rutsldc world since
October. Next day we went around
to seo our neighbors. First to the
Gold Commissioner, Wiliam Fernie,
who treated us most hosp tably,
and told us there was only one mun
with whom we should shake hands
hands of the country, and that wub
John Oalbralth. All the others he
snid were bad, especially the priest.
We found the information was correct  concerning  John Galbraith.
"Our horses having strayed near
the Mission, we thought we would
go and see If the priest lived np to
his reputation, U was not alto*
gether a surpriss to find that the
Reverend Father was a better man
than Fernie himself. He insisted on
out spending the night there and altogether treated us royally.
"Young as I was, the truth was
borne In on me that in these small
and isolated communities the bad
points are the one-, which arc noticed
and thc really ro.nl qualities and
sterling are left fur the stranger to
find nut.
"Fort Steele was uot at all new
at that time. The house that Tom!
my Hakei wanted to put us in was
built in 181.3, the ferry, being tbe only nne within many miles, and on
tbe direct route from Walla Walla,
hud mnde it u very important
"Wild Horse, which had produced
somewbore around fi.'i.oflo.ooo in
gold, was protty wall worked out,
but the old ideas obtained in many
and curious ways. For instance,
pepper was "till 54.00 a pound am
bacon, sugar, nutt, etc., three pounds
for $1,00, There was absolutely no
currency in the country. If one roniM
a purchuse he handed his poke, big
or small, and the storekeeper took
wbat be wnn tod out of It.
"How much tbo Associated Boards
of Trade bave improved on thoso
old time methods is not tor me to
Bay, bul I remember thai they wore
very happy days."
Having regard to tho tromendou
mineral roeourscs ol 10nstern Hritisb

attention to tbe surprising amount
ol gold referred to iu Captain Armstrong's ro minis) opccb. Llttlo won
dor that Fort Steele later became

An Analysis of the Vote

Elect the Bowness   fr iciCeTr— —-___.
Mr. Bldltor:—
In as Ann space for tbe following
communication, believe me 1 am not
moved by any feeling of animosity
toward anyone. Now that a mayor
and council have been selected, 1
desire to record my public spirit as a
citizen by pledging myself to tiie
loyal support of all acts of tbe new
council that make foi progress in
the city and district. As it is my
purpose to reside in the city Indefin-
tely    I    desire,  for the sake oi  the
ratepayers aud  voters of tbe future,
j    lay    belore   tbem a few facts of
unmandlng Importance.
To answer the inquiry of the cap
tion of tills nrttclo negarlvely might
attended with difllculty, esaocluUy
if one were compelled to give substantial prool in a court of law; yet
every sane man knows there are
absolute facts of every day exper
lenco that do not readily lend themselves to absolute proof. May one
•say positively for whom, any person
Ol cI.ihb of persons, voted? No one
amy question tne secrecy oi the bul
jot used iu tbe civic elections ol

ort   that out committee on "the
ors   list," utter expanding then
li-> et    of   support   to   Ibe   most   i oner
proportions, found a possible ih
supporters in thin olass. Our com
ml t tee,   consisting   ol   vjontlemsn of
lone residence and wide acquaintance
in Cranbrook nnd vicinity were astounded when they witnessed scores
of voters, unknown to them either by
name or face, lined up at the poll,
accepting ibe challenge of the sent
tineers, eaBting their votes. Here
was a body of some scores or men,
sufficient In a small community tike
this, to turn the insue in favor of
the party controlling them.
Thc    theory    and    practice   of tbo
two-dollar vote are widely divergent,
in   theory every man of full age be
ing a Hritisb subject and resident In
i'ranbrook    at    the   first of January
.receding    tbe    election    Is    assessed
two   dollars   by   the   uranlo pallty.
This    assessment admit., tbe assessed
to    the   privilege ol the iranchiso In
ill matters oxcludtng money, but, in
practice this assessment is not made.
Then-   are   scores of respectable, in-
dustrlus   and   fully qualified men in
this city who have not been assessed,
therefore   do not vote.   If these men
desire thc vote they must voluntarily tax   themselves   $2. for the privi-
egft.   Furthermore,    many    of   these
mot.    nre paying property  and water
taxes    into   the    city    treasury who
auuot   exercise tbe franchise except
they   contribute   nn    additional   *2
.oil  tax.   There arc only two t;ener
il   reasons   why tie two-dollar vote
s exercised.   1st,   the  purely  patrlo
tic   and    public spirited cltlsens will
lo It, but unfortunately this class is
i    small one.   2nd. the purely tfclush
vill iio it for material  reward.   Un-
fortuontely this latter class ia large.
sow,  Mr. Bldltor, the point I desire
to make is this:   Here ia u conBlder-
iblc    cltiss    of    citizens,  respectable.
awabldtng,  and in  many  cases godly,   living   continuously in our city.
\   targe   percentage of these do not
think it worth tiie saorlflce to go to
tbe   city   hall   and pait with S2. for
tbo   privilege   of   voting.   Dpon the
ither   hand,    as   manifest in the re-
i-tit   election,   there were upward ol
■ni   men,   gathered   from somewhere
ui   workers   do n<-t know, who tor
utrelji    patriotic    reasons wero anx-
lous    tn pay travelling cxihmihcs, safer   loss   of tune and wages, cost of
lotel oiiis, besides $2. for the prlvl-
ego of  Voting, all  to sustain thc nd
nin 1st rati on    nn    Its   past   record.
Who    can    oiplnju    tbis    romarkable

In thi, writing wc deslro to put beforo oar Western Tanners tho

llirougli an elevator, it matters not whether a Government elevator clone run by an elevator company or Individual owner, does not add
the leart fraction of ,1 cent to the value of .he grain, nor does it give
the farmer any better chance of marketing It to advantage than when
loaded direct on cars. But loading direct 01 cars cuts oul in lho first
place the elevator charge, which Is usually l*1. c. per bushel, say
$17.M on a thousand bushel car. The elevator dockage is nl.ro
saved" this may be worlli more or less, depending partly on how dirty
the grain ls, but mostly on the farmer's ab'.iily In holding IiIh own
witli the elevator man taking it in. On tbo average the dockage
may be considered worth 3c per Lnshel.to tho (armor, or say SSO per
car of 1,0(10 bushels. When grain is loadid direct Into cor over t'.io

Money Lost and Won at Monte Carlo I
It seems scarcely possible to beliove
when standing- on the promenade nt
Monte Carlo overlooking ilu* harbor,
which is generally crowtlod with fashionable yachts, anil the doop blue
Mediterranean beyond, that Ics.-. than
fifty years ago ihls world-famous lown
wan completely unknown to tho public Vet finch is the caBe, In those
dnys tho Casino, where bo many fortunes are mado and lost, was yet
Unbuilt, there was no theatre whero
princes and millionaires assemble together and where lhe finest artistes
or the world appear from time to Mine
and lis terraces gardens, ami palm-
groves, which are today the finest of
the Riviera, were nil lost, In tho miles
of vineyards which covered llie spot.
Hut even today vineyards exist on the
high land at the back nl' ihe town,
and through tho btue haze of tho atmosphere thoy help to make the town
what li undoubtedly Is—tho chief
glory of the. Mediterranean,
Ar is well known, of course, Monte
Carlo Is tho capital of thc llttlo principality of Monaco, which though under Pronch protection te the property
of the Prince Of Monaco.
But the chief attraction of Monte
Carlo Is, of course, lis Casino, which
Is famous throughout all Ihe world
for Its roulette tables. This magnified.!  building Is as while and clean
as Indeed arc nearly all llie buildings In Monte Carlo—aa on tho day
on which It was creeled, lis guldens
arc perhaps the finest In lhe world,
with their many fountains and palm
and mimosa groves and gorgeous
(lower-bods. lis Inferior possesses
well-nigh every luxury that lho human mind ean Imagine; both Ihe concert aad the gaming rooms are magnificently gilded, and It possesses
some almost priceless works of art.
All day long one oT the finest orchestras in Europe is to be heard ia
the gaming-room, and tho roulette-
tables are over surrounded by groups
of anxious people alt Intent ou malting
a fortune in Lhe shortest possible time.
Tho Casino Is open to all no charge
whatever being made. The game of
roulette is one or chance. Ou the
green cloth table on which It is played thore is a depression in which a
disc revolves. Thla disc is surrounded by red and black colored cells
thirty-seven in number, including zero.
On the disc a while ball is thrown,
and this presently drops into one of
the cells, which Is, of COtirBO, regarded
as tho winning number. Upon the
table are arranged the numbers of tbe
cells aud al.su the words pair, passu.
noir, impair, manque, and rouge. The
players may stake a sum or not Iosb
than five francs on any one or more of
these numbers or words, the less reckless players, of course, preferring tQ
do tbo latter. Should the player place
his stake on oue number and win
however, he receives thirty-six timeB
his stake: if on two. he receives eighteen times; and if on twelve, three
times its value. In the event of hint
placing It on one ot the words and
winning, ho only receives the equal
of his stakes.
in order to give one some idea of
the size and popularity of the Casino,
ll may be mentioned that no fewer
than a thousand people aro employed
about the building and in the gardens
all the year round. The Casino is a*,
present ihe property of a joint-stock
company, which pays no less than
$250 000 for tbo concession. Tills sum
however, is being gradually lucreascd.
Dut tho Casino makes Immense profits, aud, In addition to paying a dividend to its shareholder**! U also defrays the municipal expenditure. It
may not bo generally known, however,
tbat the Casino authorities pay large
sums annually to tbe Press thereby
preventing accounts of suicides and
tho like from becoming known to tbe
public. In one year the sum paid
for this purpose Is said to have exceeded a million franca.
But in spite of tiie fact that many
gamblers lose tbelr all lu the beautiful Casino at Monte Carlo, fortunes
and very large ones, too, aro occasionally made. It Is probable lhat tho
case of Monto Carlo Wells, wbo mad-b
$300,000 nt the tablos will never be
forgotten tn the principality. But
tven greater sums have been won.
Somo years ago, for instance, a well-
known American won nearly $100,000.

Revelations of ft New York "Crook"
Stories about the venality of ths
New Vork pollco, such as those that
have been appearing in the newspapers as a sequel to tho murder of the
gambler Rosenthal, aro hardly believed In this country, because lilng-
ilsh people cannot realise the difference between the American polloe
system and our own.
1 know from my own experience,
that the police of Now York systematically blackmail known criminals
by demanding money from them whenever thoy are seen to be Hush.
A typical adventure out of many
of thla sort that befell me happened
ono afternoon when 1 had bail a good,
timo In n pool-room, as the places
whero ouo used to back horsos ou
thc lupo wero called. I was standing in the street—rather foolishly 1
admit-taking stock of lho notes that
constituted the spoil, when a policeman camo up to me. and good-humored ly remarked that I seemed to be
having a good lime.
I assented, uud volunteered Ihe Information that I had been finding winners, at which he shrugged his shoulders nnd said that the talo was too
it's true, anyway, I urged. I haven't been grafting Tor a long time
Well be retorted, there's been a lot
doing in your Hue on tho street-care
lately, and any leather shlfler (pickpocket) that's brought up can reckon
on getting sent to the Island (tho
short-soutonco prison on Blaokwcll's
Island, lit tho Hudson lliver) fo.'
three months or so, on general prlMOl-
pies. Vou needn't go, unless you
I knew what that meant wo",
enough, uud was also aware that kicking was uo wood; so 1 asked hhn bl int-
ly how much he wanted.
How much have you got in that
wad? ho asked, pointing to the bundle
of notes I foolishly held In my hand
I replied to the effect that I had two
hundred dollars—nbout forty pounds
—though In reality there was much
more, as some of the bills were of
largo denomination.
Then fifty dollars won't hurt you,
he said. And I duly parted with tho
equivalent of ten Knglish pounds and
a few shilling to save myself from being arrested.
That was pure blackmail, which always leaves a bad taste behind It;
but In most cases one does get something real for oue's money, as in tho
caso following, t had neatly relieved
a man of a fat wallet, and was spoiled
lu the very act by a Central Otlice de
teet ive, though I had no suspicion at.
the time that I had been seen.
It would have been a sure enough
loug term tor me If tho detective
had pounced on me there and then but
that didn't suit hla book any more
than it would have suited mine.
Instead or arresting me, he followed me, and when we had gone some
distance away from llie scene of tho
crime, without, there being any signs
of ft hue-and-cry, he overtook me and
coolly demanded half of tho dough. 1
gave it to him willingly, aud thought
him very generous in not taking the
lot--a trick others had played up-
me when I had beeu caught with Ihe
proceeds of a robbery iu my possession.
It is so well recognized among the
criminal fraternity iu America that
every policeman has his price that tul
the flrst thing a crook does on his
release from prison is to get some
"fall money" put by, uud he never
feels comfortable in working until he
has got a tidy sum at his back lo be
used on occasion for squaring the
police should the urgency arise.
The police cannot be squared however, hi-cases thnt mnko a great noise
or where the victim Is an Influential
man; but fall mouey is necessary, all!
ihe same, for a good lawyer la » niucli
greater necessity for an American j
criminal than for his English prototype.
II was commonly believed In my:
circle, when I was in America that,
some of the police-captains bagged
as much as ten thousand pounds a j
year In bribes, bnt I haven't any firs'-'
hand knowledge on this point.
It Is an Indisputable fact, thoifjh
Hint common |ro!tccmeu aro known
to have had thousands of pounds invested, and that many of the ofllcers |
of rauk equivalent, to our superintendents have retired from lhe Force as
rich men.
Also It may safely be assumed that
any policeman In New Vork who got
nothing beyond his pay wuuld be reck-]
oned a very slow and unbusinesslike]
man indeed.

The meeting of the Associated
Boards of Trade of Eastern BritlBh
Columbia at Kort Steele this week
can only result in the general good
to the whole ol Eastern British Columbia. It is much to he regretted
that the local board is not itself associated with this useful body, and
many were the expressions of regret
by the members in attendance that
this was not bo. As a matter o[
tact we believe the majority of the
citizens of Cranbrook are in favor of
thla move being taken; but just why
It Is not bo can only be answered by
one or two who are now holding
positions of trust in its connection.
Why this responsibility should be
left in their hands we fail to see, for
undoubtedly it can only result in *
loss to the city and the community
at large. The policy of isolation is
not a wise one and the principal of
"Unity is Strength" is one th-it hold
good in all stations of life- The
success of the whole of Eastern British Columbia hangs upon this thread
and the sooner the whole i.s united
the better it will be fnr th:' general
good. This Associated Board is really the locul government of the district where political differences are
sunk and all unite together in the Interests ol the district involved.
How much more weighty are the
resolutions passed when the representation is solid in their requests.
The weight with the Provincial and
Dominion governments is much more
valued if unity is the keynote ol the
proceedings; hut when it is known
in the house that the hub, the pivot
of the whole, is disunited the work
of the remaining part is materially
minimized and their wants are some
what disregarded. It is certainly to
be honed that before another session
In held, which will he at Kaslo, the
Cannbroota Board of Trade will he
found to he running in line witli thc
other Boards of the district. "Unity
te strength" let this be the keynote
of the work nf the district, qju) t|lt. j*e
jMtft will be impossible to estimate.

It looks as if the Liberal opposition in the Dominion House have
changed their minds [n tbe matter of
forcing on a general election on the
navy question. During the purlin
mentary recess. Liberal members of
the House held meetings in their
constituencies and passed resolutions endorsing the Laurier navy
program. Now they are back in Ot
wa, and nothing has been or is being done. Wbat does it mean' 1! as
a result ot these resolutions there
was a strong feeling against the Bor
den navy scheme, tbe Liberals would
have made it known Id the house.
In the absence of that positive note,
everything indicates clearly that the
people as a wbole are very well sat
isfl-id with the Borden program and
adverse to any election at thu- time
Liberals will vote fnr the Laurier
naval scheme, and after the amendment is defeated will oiler no opposition to the passing of the Government resolution for a thirty-five million dollar cash donation.

Mr. K. L. T. Galbraith, of Kort

the delagatca that Premier Sir Richard McBrlde has the assurance of
Sir Thomas Hhaunnessy that the

Railway would be completed and oe
in operation before the close of the
year 1913. This positive assurance

quest and granted a sum of money,
■\,s a result considerable work has
already been done by capable engineers, therefore we may expect, before long, to have aome definite report, as to the reclamation of this
valuable acreage of pnstural and agricultural lands.    *    I    •    *   •
The delegates will bave suveral
resolutions appertaining to roads,
and in nearly every instance they
are of distinct importance for wol
fare of our people, and development
of the district. I feel sate In saying that we are justly entitled to
prompt recognition upon this qutst-
ion of immediate construction and
compleQlon of the roads, that will
be brought up to discussion. • •
In this most important industry I
am glad to report considerable activity and generally speaking higher prices obtained, though the lum
bern.cn at the Coast have fared bet
ter than those of the interior chiefly owing, I understand, to tbe fact
that their export trade has shown
considerable increi.se. This, however,
may only be a temporary realization
brought about by tho improved trade
conditions in the South during the
past six months, whlrh pre.-ented
dealers on the other side of tbe Inter
national boundary, supplying Canadian railways with bridge timbers
and building lumber. The Coast
mills therefor need not have to de
pend principally on the prairie mar*
ets as heretofore, while such was the
case with thc mills lo the interior,
Lumbermen jn the interior have
maintained a fair average output
hut I am credibly informed that the
percentage of profit has been infinites
mat—a condition due to the tremendous amount of lumber dumped In
from the states. Here the need of
reasonable protection is apparent.
It is a source of regret that tie
Goveenment   has displayed a certain
i mount of indifference by ignoring
for many yeats petitions presented
by the lumbermen and endorsed by
the Boards of Trade. Witb practically all other industries of any moment enjoying protection, the Govern
ment should see to it thnt in sny
case the net, which stands today on
the Statue concerning rough lumber,
is rigidly enforced. If the Government does not see its way clear to
alter the tariff they could at least
take into consideration the dumping
clause und bring ln a bill which will
muke lt impossible for iffty Supreme
Court Judge to rule In any other
way than by a correct interpretitlon
of the act. Tho Hon. George K,
Foster, Minister of Trade nnd Commerce, hns clearly defined the act
yet a recent decision in the Supreme
Court was not given In accordance
therewith. A change in thin direct-
Ion woii.d not to my mind affect the
prices to the farmer in any way, but
It would materially assist the mill
men, wbo are not getting a reaso-ia-
ble return. As it is at present tbe
middleman buys under large c. n-
tracts In the States and dlctatss the
price, not only to the British Colum
hif.u Lumbermen but also the farmers.
The Kootenny and Boundary crop
tor 1912 showed a substantial increase nn it is e-atlmated thut no
nml fifl.iHHi Ruffes of plums, prunes,
and flfi,000 cases of plums, prunes,
beats und crab nipples were grown;
which means approximately lOTi cars
>I apples and not less thnn U> curs
of other fruits, bssides ths small
fruits, suih us strawberries, map-
berries, etc. The greatest portion of
the small pnrlshnhle fruita were
bought by the preserving tactorl-n,
and any of which were shlpiwd
brought good returns, It was a
most favorable year for vegetables,
nver ROO cars ol potatoes and otber
vegetables being the estimated crop
in the Kootenny and Boundary.
A   great   deal   of complaint arose
this year over difficulties experienced
in marketing the products. Oue unfortunate instance connected with
the marketing occurred. I refer to
the interview wl, eh uppeated in the
Oalgary Herald. Mr, Raymond T.
Hicks, manager 0 the Kootenay
Fruit Growora' Association of Nelson, was credited with having ox,
pressed himself as falling to see nny
money for the fruit rancher on account of it being impossible to market same and receive profitable prices
* * • To my mind the marketing of fruit means a very simple
matter. The producers shi mid place
themaidves in the same pos tion at
a manufacturer of goods, Long bo-
fore thOBO goods are ready for tho
market, salosihon nro sent out in nil
directions, from coasi to coast,
months in advance and invurtanly
wilh success. It Is no good manu
faoturlng and packing up largo stoek
without previously having mado
some   doflulte   arrangement whereby
tbey    i*nn  bo disposed  ol at   the best
It has been proven beyond a doubt
that Urltlsh Oolumbla can grow
fruit second to none in the world,
and if we got into tbo prattles bo-
fore our wideawake competitors to
tho south ol us, there is not the
Slightest doubt that Canadian merchants will give preference to home
productions, It would bo an easy
matter to forecast the approximate
crop at least six or eight weeks be
tore the picking time, that Is ot
course all things being equal and no
unfavorable or untorseen climatic
conditions arising ln the meanwhile,
.'.ach rancher could send to his local association the approximate
number of the boxes of the various
varieties of apples ho would have
ready packed for shipment at n given time. The central association
could then correctly estimate the total output. Salesmen going into the
prairies would be posted ln these details und be able to offer large consignments for future delivery, and
this combined with the Btornge system would enable B.C. growers to
easily hold their own in any mar-
let.   ♦   *   •   •
It will be very pleasing, not alone
to tbe ranchers, but people generally
of our Province to know that, with
the s.tleudld fruit British Columbia
produces tit the low price of a dollar per box for the average crop,
there is at least 66-2-3 per cent profit
on the cost of production, whereas
of course this percentage is greatly
Increased when we go to the better
grades of standard varieties which
it is on record have realized anywhere from $1.75 to 12.75 a box, to
say nothing of the fancy prices in
specific instances which have reached
as high as $10.00.
As a business proposition, where
can any man hope to obtain a batter return for his outlay? I um given to understand that moat of the
commercial business bouses in the
Province would be delighted with an
average of over 30 per cent on their
outlay. In view of these Indisputable facts it would be ridiculous to
seriously entertain thnt hastily given denunciation or the fruit growing
Industry in British Columbia.
Wbat ia necessary is the pressing
need for the supervision and inspection of fruit dumped in from the United States. If the Government will
see to this, Canadian ranchers will
be brought Into fair competition.
The success of fruit ranching does
not entirely depend upon the growing of fruit. There are so many factors necessary to help the grower
not only by becoming self-maintaining, but for the fertilization of his
land. When the long wait for the
larger fruit to come into bearing
must he met in some practical form,
It ts the concensus of opinion that
mixed farming helps In many ways.
So long as the man does not keep
stock larger than he la able to maintain, by growing his own fodder, he
meets n benefit in two ways nt
least, firstly by invaluable fertilizer
and secondly from the revenue he receives, no matter whether ft is from
pig, poultry or cattle. AU the successful rnnchora I huve met nre holding a few acres oner and above
their orchard land for the growing of
feed and support of tbeir stock. I
simply offer these suggestions as a
practical solution for helping the
smaller fruit growers along to future success.     *   x   *   •
Tho completion of tbe Panama
Canal; tbe Transcontinental Lines
wltb a network of '.tranches, utilizing of our navtgnble waters—and It
will probably surprise many that we
have ovor a thousand miles of nav
lgable waters lo the Kootenny—will
naturally be the medium of carrying
our prairie grains, etc., produce
from our mines, forests nnd soils.
When Innugerated lt will be the
means ot cheaper and quicker facilities for marketing of these products
to the Mother Country and other
markets, of the world.
Capital must be had for the purpose of utilizing the tremendous Water powers now running to waste,
which If harnessed for electrical power for the use of our railways,
smelters, mines, manufacturers,
flour mills, and for heating, lighting
and other household purposes,
would be of tremendous assistance
if develped economically and din-

This will all tend to rapid growth
and our Government could do no*
thing better than to uso some portion of our millions now lying idl*

The annual congregational meeting
of Knox Presbyterian Church was
held in the church on Wednesday
evening tho 22nd instant and was
well attended by tbe members and
adherents. A very gratifying feat-
ture of the report ot the Board ol
Managers waB the announcement
that the mortgage on the church has
heen completely paid oil and that
the church property Is now altogether free from debt. The managers
stated that it was due very largely
to the splendid assistance they
received from the ladles of the congregation thnt they were anle to secure the necessary funds. It is well
known however that the managers
themselves were untiring in their efforts throughout the year and the
meeting was not backward ln express
ing thetr appreciation of the results
The  reports   of the various organizations   of   the church showed substantial    progress    notwithstanding
the   unavoidable   interruption to the
church work caused by the change of
ministers   whlcb   took   plnce during
the   year.   It   ls felt   however   that
with the church throughout now fully   organized, much greater progress
will be made during the coming year.

For in Iceland all these troubles and
trials of existence, so familiar to the familiar
world, arc simply absent. Life flows along
with thc deep placidity of complete comradeship, complete satisfaction in love and the
home—in complete freedom from all the
horrors which, directly, and so greatly indirectly, have scourged woman's soul and body
through the curse of alcohol.
There is no liquor in Iceland. So there
is no unhappiness, except the petty cares of
life and the griefs that are inevitable to death.
And even they are marvelously mitigated, as
though, throughout a whole people, some
blessed benison had passed, acquitting them
of the penalties humanity commonly bears.

Iceland, In making Us choice ot absolute prohibition
•f alcohot, was freed from cither danger. Thero was no
appreciable danger of Intermarrlugo with alcoholics-
chronic, moderate or spasmodic—because its own people
are singularly domestic and Its foreign visitors are few.
There wus no appreciable risk from local intermarriage
tocausQ tho actual number of tho population was large
anough to prevent harmful Inbreeding. In effect, Iceland wan as safe for the remarkable experiment as were
the North American Indiana before the advent of the
-whites. And what tho Indians became after our advent,
and our ium, we know.
Today, with 78,000 hale nnd hearty people within Its
fcoundarlcs, Iceland doesn't allow a drop of alcohollo
drink to bo made by ono cf them and doesn't allow a
drop to be brought ln by any outsider.
Today Iceland hasn't a single jail; hasn't a single
penitentiary; hasn't a single court; hasn't a single child

Jan Is thinking ot that hearlless llttlo minx, la lie, even
after he's been married for five years and you have borne
him those two dear children you thought ho loved so
much?   Well, let him go to his false Annie.
These harsh things thought, you speak them, with
your own bright bluo eyes flashing the Arcs inherited
from your old viking ancestors. Jan, who Is some viking
himself, asseverates his fondness for violet blue, for the
lliEt time forgetting that china blue has a sweetness all
Its own.   So, you bolh agree, that settles lt.
Forthwith you part. But mind, you're not divorced—
not by three long years. You must wait all that llmo
to find out whether Jan really doesn't care for china blue;
nnd he must wait those three years to find out whether
you are the demon of jealousy ho thought you when ho
sassed back, or merely a natural-born, human woman
who should have bcen kissed a whole lot and lectured
only a little bit
Annie can como sidling around Jan, trying to catch
him again; and one or two of your own old admirers may
venture to be extra polite to you, although their attentions, during tho interim, can scarcely conduce to your
reputation's enhancement. You aro still a wlfo, and all
Iceland seems ln leaguo to let you know lt Isn't forgetting it.
You two quarrelers stick tt out; tho three yeara pass;
your divorce Is due. But now comes the crisis; for, whllo
you bave the right to tako the younger child, that hateful, obstinate Jan can keep the older one—which tugs at
Jan's heartstrings as cruelly as lt does at yours. There
are not many husbands and wives whose rancor survives
those three years of trial divorce, and fewer still whom

divorce question, llko the vote question, Is by no means.
a Jive issue tn Iceland.
Thoso who iim accustomed to tlio high percentage of
divorces among American;, would Imagine that plenty ol
Icelandic households would he split up all the time by
auch separations. But tho reality presents a very different picture. Tho parting of a couple Is almost the last
resort, and when it docs hupp^n the dlvorco itself la a
probable, lf not assured, sequel.
Women aro treated too well to find cause for divorce.
The subMantlals are what count In Iceland. All traveling ta done by ponies, famous roadsters of the north,
of which a family cannot have specimens too fine In
quality or too many in numbers, because they constitute
a cash asset, like flno horses on an American farm. Nor
can they havo too many fine old carvings, or rare old
bits of metal work, or delicate laces and ombroiderlcs.

somo admiring compatriot .pointed out tho thrilling circumstance thut she had Purisicnno graco

Let them accuse her of the banality of slang,
and her admirers concerted action just to make
her show what dumnge sho could do to tho king's
Let them charge her with incurable frivolity,
and their pet brothers hastened to pursue her for.
tho sake of being amused.
But on™ they suid "Sho chews gum" there
was no defense.
ALL Ill.H gay laughter, all her reslstle.is charm,
became vulgarised under that shocking attainder.
No woman who is well bred cnn afford to Indulge-
In mastication after the fashion of a cow. It
might not lie exactly sinful; but English society has before this condoned sinfulness where It condemned sheer
vulgarity. The American girl, oven though sho might
havo abstained from gum from the hours of her Inuoeont
childhood and Its Innocuoun LIIshch, could not escape lho
reproach of her national environment- Hho wus a gmn-

and honorable practice of gum-chowlng, usually abandoned on this side of tbe Atlantic when u gltl Is past 7
years of age.
But ull the evidences of expert ness aro to be observed
when one penetrates Into a district which Is already eo
-enlightened on the subject as Lancashire. There everybody chows, and the Innumerable factory girls chew most
gum of alt, with teeth that ore ulrcady becoming famous
for their whiteness. The tule-oMlmmh regulations ln the
Lancashire factory district came down ut flrut like a
thousand of bricks on the Iniquitous gum habit—not because It was unladylike, but becaoso superintendents and
foremen surmised that a working girl couldn't work and
ruminate nt the sumo time.
The old Story had the old sequel.   As soon us ll was
ordered that uny factory girl caught with chewing gum
should bo flred, HO factory girl was to ho CftUgllt  Willi
