British Columbia's Richness
The fast developihg Land of Opportunity
tit's Natural Resourtes unlimited
We are in receipt of a folder this
week thnl. ih published hy mul with
the authority of the Provincial Govornmont of British Oolumbla outlining the possibilities'and probabilities
or ihe provinco. in unmlstftkafolo
terms it calls U. 0. tho Dominion's
tlreatest. Province; the Empire's Paolflc Gateway; the Panama t'aiml n
Northwest Terminal, antl the fusi developing Land of Opportunity.
Referonce nre mnde to Its natural
resources, agriculture, timber, water,
mines and milling, tish and flshorles,
recreation, etc. In its references to
tho Richest Portion of America in its
Natural Resources it goes on t0'say:
It haa an area of three hundred
ami ninety-live thousnn 1 square miles;
a coast-line of seven thousand miles;
twenty million acres of wheat land;
live million ncres of fruit land; fifteen million acres of standing Umber;
largest con] areas' in North' America;
its mines have produced four hundred
and sixty million dollars; its fisheries one hundred and Blxty-five million
dollars; the finest nnd safest .harbors
on the Pacilic Coast; the best all-
year climate, by the records; the banner Province of-Canada,
lt is very optimistic as to the (future and says that agriculturally, it
is at the threshold of a great future.
It lias tho Inst grent stand of Dou
gins fir, red cedar, spruce und hemlock timber. Its mines of conl, load,
gold, silver, nnd copper steadily increase their output, It is the centre
of tho halibut, salmon and herring
fisheries, It is the big-game" hunter's and the nngbr's Promised Land,
Scenically, ii must he seen to he appreciated, 'description cannot do it
justice.
AGRICULTURE].
Mixed farming, fruit-growing, vegetable growing, poultry-raising, dairying, stock-raising, and truck-gardening are carried on successfully In the
pears, plums, cherries, apricots,
grapes, and poaches—have won the
highest awards at exhibitions in
Oreat Britain, Qastern Canada, and
the United States.
Hritisb Columbia potatoes won the
Slillwell #,000 cup In 1912 at New
Vork City, U.S.A., for the beBt collection of potatoes. Open to the
whole Continent of  Amcrien.
Hritisb Columbia is rapidly extend-
in,' home nud foreign markets.
Hritisb Columbia's fertile virgin
soils yield heavy crops.
Hritisb Columbia has irrigated and
non-irrigated lands tor the farmer,
ns well as pre-emption and home-
stead lands.
Hritisb Columbia farmers enjoy an
equable year round climate, No extremes of either cold or hent. Oood
roads and good schools,
Hritisb Columbia is particularly
well adapted to mixed farming,
Hritisb Columbia 1)03 wide areas
suitable iu every respect Tor cattle-
glazing, hoi He-raising, and Sheep-

Hritisb Columbia's Department of
Agriculture spends mnny hundreds of
thousands of dollars annually for tho
farmers and fruit-growers.
Any   British   subject,   a   widow,    or

who is self-supporting, or alien who
declares his intention of becoming a
British subject, may take up preemptions in British Columbia. Three

feet of milling timber weBt of Cascades (Coast Range), or ft,000 feet
east of Cascades, to the acre cannot
be pre-empted. Coal, mineral, petroleum, and natural gas do not pass under Crown grant lands.
TIMBER—WATER.
British Columbia timber consists
mainly of Douglas Ur, red cedar,
spruce, and hemlock—fir and cedar being the bulk of the stand.
To the tlmberman, the manufacturer of pulp, paper, etc., and all manufacturers wbo use soft woods as the
principal factor Ih their output, British Columbia offers very great opportunities.
An abundance of water-power, easily convertible into electric power,
is available near most of the heaviest
stands for the use of thc manufacturer or tbe lumberman.
British Columbia Douglas Iir iB
famous for heavy construction-work,
und for inside finish as well.
British Columbia red cedar is admittedly the finest for shingles.
Vancouver Island alone can f irnish
one billion feet of merchantable timber a year for one hundred years to
come.
Climatic mildness allows of continuous all-year work In the logging
camps and mills.
The Provincial Forestry Department, ably handled, lessens the dangers and the destructlveness of forest fires.
Deep-sea harbours wi*h not-urai
dockage are adjacent to many of the
forests of British Columbia.
The opening of the Panama Canal
will put British Columbia timber to
the front in the marketB of the
world,
MINES AND MINING.
It Ib officially estimated that thc
Cro.wsnest coalfields alone contain
coal sufficient to supply five million
tons of coal a year for seven thousand years.
There are 300,000 square miles of
land open to prospecting for mineral.
An individual free miner's licence
costs $5 a year. A licence to prospect for coal over a square mite of
unreserved Government land costs
$100 a year.
Iron ore exists In large bodies.
Some of them aro close to extensive
toal areas nnd water-power. Steel
and iron manufacturers arc invited
to examine conditions.
Oold, silver, copper, and lead mining aro firmly established on *i paying basts,  Mining for zinc is in  its
initial  stage.
licit ish Columbia smelters are
handling many hundreds iff thousands of tons of high nnd low-grade
ores, and mnking thousands' of
pounds of blister-copper and  also of
refined lead.
Marble, fireclay, limestone, sandstone, and brick-clay are subsidiary
products, chiefly used in building,
the manufacture of cement, etc.
British Columbia mining affords a
first-class field for capital, handled
by experienced and careful investors.
The industry, in practically all of
its branches throughout the Province,
ls developing in a stable and satisfactory manner.
The incoming of railways,, the extension of the present railway ByB-
teni of British Columbia, will undoubtedly stimulate mining in the
Province, and render accessible areas
known'to be mineral-bearing.
FISH AND FISHERIES.
British Columbia's salmon-pack for
11113 was 1,353,901 cases, a gain of
888,007.cases since 1904.
British Columbia is at present
shipping frozen fresh halibut and salmon to Oreat Britain.
The halibut hanks arc of immense
area. Their commercial possibilities
are very important. ■
Tbe herring fishery in British Columbia has been developed to a comparatively limited degree only, considering the scope of which tbo industry is capable.
The self-made merchant said to his son, "Of
course clothes don't make the man, but they make
all of him except his hands and face during business hours." You may not think your advertising
a very important matter, but it is all strangers
see of your business and they will judge you by it.
If you use your advertising space judiciously,
these strangers will come to you to deal and become acquainted with you. Advertising is the
best means to enlarge your business acquaintance.

The opening 0I the Fanama Canal
offers a short cut for freah salmon,
halibut and cod to Old World markets.
British Columbia produced almost
hull of the entire fisheries VHlue for
fiscal year of 1912-13. Over seven
million dollars' worth more than Nova Scotia, the next Province in importance.
British Columbia Balmon-pack represents close to one-quarter of entire pack of Pacilic Coast.
Splendid modern fishery establishments, canneries, and cold storage
arc found In various points iu the
province.
The shipping of fresly caught sea
fish from British Oolumbla to eastern aud middle Canada, aud the entire United States, ls likely to develop into an important branch of
the trade.
The present, active railway development in the Province will give the
fisheries more and quicker routes for
the disposal of thc fish, and develop
new fishing-grounds in British Columbia.
RECREATION,   ETC.
Grizzlies,    mountain-sheep,    goats,
moose, deer, caribou, and cougar for
the hunter. Salmon and trout and
river and lake,and sea-fishing for the
angler. British Columbia salmon

good hotels available. Four thousand miles of ■ magnificent automobile
roads In a delightful climate. Peaks,
glaciers, waterfalls, mountain lakes,
superb national parks, canyons rivers, and wilderness scenery. World-
famous motor highways.
NUGCiETS.
British Columbia's educational system is Becond to none in North
America. Schools are tree, well-
tiiught, numerous, and undenominational.
Serious crime is at a minimum in
the Province, both in the cities aud
country.
Tiie great majority of the population is Anglo-Saxon; chiefly British.
Manhood suffrage prevails and voting is by ballot.

Magnificent Reception accorded the Canadian
Troops upon arrival at Plymouth
Plymouth, Oct. 16.—"There came n
gallant ship full sail to Plymouth
hje."
Mucaulay's lines in which he Bang
of a stupendous incident of English
history will doubtless come to the
minds 0f many when they learn that
the mighty transports and convoy
bearing the Canadian contingent to
the great clash of arms is now snug
and safe within the waters of Plymouth sound and ns far as the Ho-
moaze. The troops began to disembark earl* this morning, going to
Salisbury plain.
The Canadian troops will   not   b;
able to say they found a lukewarm
reception even though they came into
England almost by stealth. If there
was any grumbling on the subject it
will come from the people ,of thc famous seaport who were unable, owing to the restriction of attendant
circumstances, to give such a demonstration as they would have desired.
Plymouth haa seen a few Bights in
its time but there has never been
anything like this.
PEOPLE WERE SURPRISED.
The arrival of these transports
came as a surprise to tbe great majority of people of Plymouth, 'lhe
first ships steamed slowly in during
the early morning. The (oik on
shore were watching them more or
less idly, which u not a surprising
matter considering tbey have heui
able to watch thc movements Oi a
good many vessels which are strangers to Plymouth during thc past few
lateful months. It was the men u.
board who themselves mado known
their arrival, for as the great vessels
draw iu shore the Boldiera of tbe Ma
pic Leaf were heartened mightily U
Und the first incident in their momentous mission accomplished and
broke into wild cheers. With eager
enthusiasm to look out on the rich
land of Devon they swarmed out on
to the top decks and into the rigging and cheering passed from ship
to ship.
WHY, IT'S THE CANADIANS.
"No ordinary crowd of soldiers
Aboard those boats," was the thought
passing among the still puzzled onlookers. Then in a Hash the real
character of these voyagers dawned
upon the watchers.
"Why,  It's tlic Canadians."
The exclamation passed from one
llttlo group of beholders to another.
Straightway thc cheers of thoBe on
the transports received a response
from the good folk of the port. Tbe
news spread further and each company of watchers nddul to IU number every minute.
Hats and flags were waved both
afloat and ashore and from the dock
of at least one tit the transportp thorn
came a skirl of bagpipes, The relief
at reaching port was Intense among
thn Canadian*. The disappointment
was correspondingly Intense among
the townsfolk because there Imd been
no means of bestowing a hearty welcome other than'by nn abnormal display of lung power.
He this ns It may, the Canadians
will not forgot their reception at this
port, the demonstration being all the
more noteworthy bemuse It wns so
completely spontaneous. If there wero
any formal reception Tor the commanders of the transports by the
military and naval heads of tbo port
it was purely of a private character.
The public demonstration was entirely between the folk ot the three
towns and the contingent of the rank
and file.
The weather almost throughout the
voyage was ideal, scarcely a single
man being seriously inconvenienced
by tho penalty most often imposed
on ocean travellers. The case of the
horses, the uxh, i* not so happy.
For this reason tbey were landed
directly on arrival. A great many of
them reeled and staggered on being
led ashore, but soon recovered themselves nnd are now being comfortably
established on the land. Life on
hoard a transport is of a confined
character both for man and beast
and the latter feels it more than bis
master. The cramped quarters, too,
make life difficult in other ways, but
on board the Canadian transports
transports there was quite regular
■routine. Everybody turned out at
5:30 a.m.
There was the daily drill, especially
in the way of physica exercises, and
the men were quick to devise methods for keeping fit and trim. Boxing
bouts were a great feature and th"1
men of one company challenged others in a tug-of-war. Every transport
was a temperance ship.
Those who have already come
ashore say life on board throughout
the voyage was of the happiest character, the only disadvantage being
there was scarcely room enough to
move about and little to do except
go through the same exercises over
and over.
In spite of these drawbacks the men
from Canada wer* never more fit
than at this moment. On n-arly every ship a newspaper was published
and it gave the latest war news received by wireless, thc editor alBo de
voted aome (portion of his meagre
space to small incidents happening
on hoard,
Thire will he many a laugh in Canadian homes over Borne Ot these personal paragraphs when the mall carries these newspapers back along
with letters to tbose left behind.
The voyage at night wns conducted
with the portholes Bhrouied.tut down
below docks the crowded companies
contrived to enjoy a good deal of Innocent revtlry.
Tho folk on the shore at Plymouth
were surprised to find the Canadians
apparently were not familiar with
"It's a Long Way to Tlpperary."
Probnbly they wvre too busy to learn
It when at Valcartier. Songs of a
autre domestic character were in evidence on the transports.
Ouly a small portion ol the in -n
received shore leave wben the transports berthed, the privileges being
granted to men who had friends and
relatives ln the neighborhood, Some
of these came early ashore on various duties, but with tlm exception of
removing horses tbere was no general movement toward fllBombnrkment
nnd future proceedings are hMII uncertain,
FANTASTIC STORIES ClUCII-
LATHI).
Plymouth Just now la naturally un
der especially strict control nnd the
Canadians are probably aB comfortable aboard as tbey would be ashore.
The weather, having been very un
settled, has picked up again, and tbe
men in the uniform of the Maple
Leaf will probably pass through a
smiling Devonshire when they do begin the journey inland.
England has been awaiting the ar
rival of the contingent for months
past. Military necessities have hitherto rendered it impossible to give
precise itttyrniabfoh concerning the
movements of the troops from the
Dominioa and in consequence some
fantastic stories concerning them
bave been circulated.
Many voluntary agencies in Eng
land are eager to assist in their well
being, while here special efforts are
being made to keep the contingent
supplied with newspapers from tbe
Dominion of Canada colony In London. London is considering several
proposal d for their comfort.
DISEMBARKED IN RAIN.
Plymouth, England, Oct. 1G 1, a.
ni.—The Canadians received a debar-
• at ion order from the war office unexpectedly tbis morning. Despite
the rain, crowds of people turned
out to watch the landing nnd entraining of the troops, which began
with a contingent of Strathcona
Horse.
Tbo various contingents were head
ed through the streets by their bands
and pipes. Owing to the difficulty 0f
berthing the transports in consequence of the neap tide the debarkation of the Canadians Ib expected to
he slow.
SOME REACH SALISBURY.
Salisbury, England, Oct. 16.—The
country folk for many miles around
lined the streets of Salisbury during
the whole of this afternoon and late
in the evening to give the Canadian
troops a rousing welcome on their entry into the famous city, hut much
to their disappointment there was no
sign up to nearly midnight of an>
of the contingent arriving. It was,
in fact, Just on the stroke of 12 when
the first detachment made its appearance. The men looked none the wone
for t\ti lung sea and train journey,
and on reaching camp they wore -e
freshed with tea that had been brewing for something like Iti hours In ex
pcctatlon hourly of their arrival
Tho remainder of the troops will lie
brought, in tomorrow.
Oontrary to all previous reports,
the camps are all mt Sntlabury plain
within three, or four mlbs of each
other mid the men will live tinder
canvas.
In more ways than one the Canadians will find their new quarters u
groat Improvement on Valcartier,
where sand and dust. In particular
caused Home trouble, Tbe grounds aro
judiciously situated on gentle slope.-
and nf well drained, So the men
should bo qulto dry.
Military nooosaltlos render It Impos
slbie to Hay anything concerning
many matters upon which the dnm
dian public will be eager for lufor
niatlon. Th' voyage to Britain was
a delightful one nnd on every trans
port there wiih inn lnt allied the mime
MigernoHH mid Iluc Bpirlt which were
shown In tbe days before Hailing.   II
is understood there is a clean bill of
health, but a good many horses have
died on the voyage. The task of disembarking such immense numbers of
men and material is naturally tremendous but arrangements are working witb complete smoothness.
CHAMPION JUSTICE AND LIBERTY.
The Western Morning News for today says the arrival of the first contingent of the Canadian forces at
Plymouth was an event of good augury for*the future of the country.
"These splendid men have come,
some of them nearly (1,000 miles to
testify to the unity of the Empire
aud to take their share of the burden which rests upon Britons the
world over of being the stoutest
champions of liberty and justice.
Even if their numbers were small
cr," adds the News, "we should hail
their arrival as a symbol of tbe solidarity of tbe British i race, but they
come a large number in themselves
and yet are only the earnest of many
more to come if they are needed to
help in defeating* the imposition o!
German tyranny and militancy on the
world. .The cheers they raised for the
old country when they steamed into
harbor yesterday and the splendid
spirit they displayed showed they
have both the will and the power to
give a good account of themselves at
the front and prove worthy comrades
of the dauntless band of heroes who,
under Sir John French, have won
tbe unstinted admiration of our
French and Russian and Belgian allies, and indeed Of the who!»i world."
London, Oct. 15.—How the Becrecy
of the port of arrival of the Canadian troops was maintained, says a
Plymouth message, may be gathered
from thb fact tbat Plymouth's population of nearly 250,000 was officially
ignorant that the Canadians were to
disembark there. All the same, many
thousands of people have lined the
harbor front all day, cheering transport after transport as they have,
with stately dignity, threaded their
way in across the .harbor to the inner waters on their way to the government anchorage.
The heartiness of the welcome has
been unmistakable, all classes of the
roDUlatinn having turned out and
left their work to greet Canada's
sons.
Men with megaphones have shouted
words of welcome. In response to
cries of "Are We Downhearted?" have
come across the stretch of waters
■nich negative replies as have startled evi>n tbe sturdy and liwty folk of
Devon. On the approach of the Canadians the men working in the government dockyards dropped their
tools and ceased tbeir labors to greet
tbem, whli* the men of Kitchener's
army, training near the sea front,
stopped their drill and shouted lustily.
Strathcona's horse came in for a
gratifying reception. They could be
distinguished by a Bpeclal banner ills,
played on the liner's bridge.
Those who have come In close
touch with the contingent are delighted with the soldierly touring
<.ind the heartiness of the troops and
their splendid spirit. They will do
Canada credit and are to be a sturdy help In the tleld.
Boer Rebel Whipped in

Routers from Capetown says that

"Truly, I am in Great
Straits"
If some relief is not soon forthcoming the local corps of the Salvation Army will have to be withdrawn
from Cranbrook. Such Is the only
decision that can be arrived at from
a letter received from Brigadier
Qreen of Vancouver that was addressed to the mayor and read at
the council meeting on Tuesday.
In reading this week's War Cry,
the Army's official organ, we learn
that,the Oeneral of the Army Ib making a special appeal tu all from the
youngest to the oldest for assistance
to help relieve the distress. In thla
appeal the Oeneral says, "Truly, I
am in a strait." Practically the
whoU of the income of the Army has
been stopped, owing to many organi-
•a.ions being formed and working to
obtain subscriptions for the soldiers'
funds. "Not that these are perfectly
right in their way, but we are housing today about 14000 men and women, handicapped through folly or
misfortune, and wh0 are now in tbe
social institutions and being cared
for hy the Army. Unless some assistance if> not received immediately
these men and women will all be
turned adrift at a time when it is
more difficult to earn one's living
than the oldest living Britisher can
remember."
Then the Army bave hospitals for
the sick, hospitals tbat bave been
visited and most highly commended
by Queen Mary for the benevolent
nnd useful work accomplished in
them. "Where would the sick go at
these times when all the hospitals
and all kinds of institutions are
commandeered for hospital use for
the valiant heroes who have been
wounded in the service of their
country?" The maintenance of these
hospitals and homes cost at least
$500 per week.
The above is a part of the problem tbat is perplexing tbe heart and
mind of the General and his staff at
these times. The General Is making
on appeal for $25,000 to help tbose
in. »*ed who have no claim on the
■mtriotic funds. Thia sum will keep
open for twelve months the doors of
all tbe homes for aged poor, for
homeless children, and the hospitals
for poor sick, which otherwise may
he closed. "Truly." as tbe General
says, "I am In a istrait."
We bring the above to our readers'
attention for one reason above many
others, i. e., the fact that the Army
has so many sympathizers in this
district who, perhaps, do not know
do not realise the straits
the Army ls In today, and
who would be most willing to tender
their mite for its support in thiB
time of its greatest need. Tbe Army,
iu spite of wbat many people would
iave ub believe, bas done a lot of
good service in this district; many
hardships have the officers bad to
bear and much abuse has been given
tbem, but they bore it all without
complaint and to their honor be it
said.   Many have be.«n the hours of
ntertaiiiment they have been the
means of providing in tbe camps for
the benefit of the lumberjack and the
laborer. These men from the very
nature of their occupation and their
environment never would go into a
church or a church minister go and
visit  them.   But tbe  Army  men    go
oul they should be honored the more
or the hardships they have to endure. TheBe men might be d'sirous
of giving a little if they knew of the
Army's need. Perhaps they will;
who knowB?

20th YEAR
CRANBROOK, B.O     October 17th,  1414
No.  42
This will he the last issue of the
Prospector for some time. In making this announcement to our readers
and the public it is with deep regret
and with a feeling that comes over
one when parting with some big
treasure. The Prospector has been
published since 189". without miBsing
a single issue; in that year Mr. A.
li. draco published the tirst issue in
Fort Steele, and later removed the
plant to Cranbrook. During the lite
of the paper it lias played an important part In promulgating the interests or the district. In the early
part of 1911 the paper changed hands
to the present owner, who, in taking
over tbe management felt it to be a
great trust; the Prospector being one
of the oldest papers in the province.
For a time the prosperity of the office was assured, then came a
depression in the Fall of 1913 brought
about by a series of happenings over
which one had no control. The
district was being run over with a
depressive spirit that was hard to
combat with, for really there was no
cause. In the early part of this year
the crisis in the lumber business,
upon which thp prosperity of the city
has in a large measure depended,
reached an acute stage resulting in
the gradual displacement of hundreds
of men. The abnormal financial situation from which the country has
been suffering reached its climax on
the outbreak of the European war.
Advertising was withdrawn, stationary accounts wer; curtailed, and a
most unmistakable trade depression
took place, so much so that our receipts have fallen so much that drastic measures have had to lie taken
to assist in taking care of the future
In consequence of all this the managements of the Prospector and the
Herald went into consultation and
decided to join interests and unite
in publishing one paper and endeavor
by a series of economic workings to
advance tbe interests ot the two
concerns  under  the one  head.
• •   •   •
The future of the joint paper will
he what you make It. Ub purpose
In the community will be to form a
constructive policy on absolutely independent lines for the whol-hearted
upbuilding of the district. Within
the bounds of fair comment, an Intelligent and we hope constructive
criticism will he,directed on all matters of civic und public Interest.
• •   e   *
The usefulness of the paper wlll he
considerably enhanced hy the combination of the two subscription lists
to advertisers and one t hat should
be taken note of for future guidance,
lu thc case of subscribers being duplicated, as Is possible in this case,
the time of expiration will be advanced. Wheu the subscription lints
are tb iroughly overhauled the number of paid up renders will he published for advertisers benefit. It is
most essential to the success of the
scheme that is being work out
that thp management will have the
entire support of all the merchants
nnd citizens and at this time we tako
this opportunity of asking all non-
subscribers to become subscribers,
and by su doing become a co-partner
in assisting to maintain a worthy
newspaper in the city.

The council were brought face to
face On Tuesday with a problem, that
h perplexing the best civic authorities'through the lengtti and breadth
ot the Dominion today, 1. e., delinquent taxes. The problem is a serious one and one that lias to he faced  and Considered seriously.  It would
be a very unpleasant proceeding if the
council were t(l tn':e ho'd of a man's
property and lands and offer the same
for public sale; It would be most uninviting if the council were to take
any drastic measures to collect the
same. Any scheme whereby the citizens are put to an undue hardship at
this time of money stringency would
only Increase the difllculty and make
th" circumstances governing the city
conditions far worse Yet at the
same time'what are the city author!
ties *i do? It looms Up as a ghost
in the future that if these taxes are
not.   paid   the  City   will   not   be   lu    a
position to pay tho teachers' sal
aries, and then what an uproar wouW
arise In the city. Tho children would
have to be thrown nn tllO homo aud
would lack educational facllltloB,
The future ennseqnonces of such aea
lamity could not bo accurately estl
mated, If an estimate were potHlblo
At all. And yet FUlctl a condition
may arlsle. Again, look what a Having to the ratepayers themselves
tf the arrears were paid. The taiea
for neit year will be considerably in
creased if the arrears are not paid;
on the other hand if a large proportion was, paid the taxes might be
lowered.
* *   -   *
The tax problem before the city
council exercised their consideration
for a considerate time and the solution they came to was the advocacy of publicity. The names of all
the delinquent ratepayers up to November 1st will he published in the
local newspapers, so if any ol our
readers do nut  want their names to
appear "Pay up." ,

The passing of a by-law governing
the measuring of wood and the weighing of coal at Tuesday's council
meeting was a good one, Whlc
there have been no complaints about
the amount of coal anyone has received there have been a considerable
number of complaints trade respecting the measure of cord wood supplied by the Itinerants in the city.
Shortages have been repotted and no
redress can he had because tbe dealer will tell you be soW you the wood
by the rick ur the load an.l thus
avoids any specific quantity. Such
in the future wilt not be possible,
wood must be Bold by the cord or
a portion thereof. A cord of wood
contains 128 cubic feet or a pile of
wood with a minimum of air space 4
feet high 4 feet through and 8 feet
long. When you buy wood antl feel
dissatisfied with the quantity received pile it and call in the Chief of
Police and receive satisfaction. The
bylaw is a good one and should result in benefit to the purchaser.

Numbers of school children have of
late been making sling-shots or catapults and Bhootlng small stones at
bottles and even the hanging electric
lights ia the streets. Parents of
children who have these dangerous
playthings In their possession should
take note of Sec. 2 of the "Offensive
Weapons Act," which provides among
otber things that a person found to
he in possession of a sling-shot shall
be guilty of an offence and liable on
summary conviction to a penalty
not exeeding a tine,of $200.00 or less
than $25.00 or to imprisonment for a
term not exceeding nix months with
or without hard labor or both." Under these circuniHtaiices it would be
just ns well if the parents looked
among their children's playthings and
burnt all sling-shots found to he in
their possession. The chief of police
has already confiscated several slingshots and tliey form quite an addition to his large curio collection.
(KIUD  FOR  REVELSTOKE
(iood (or Revelstoke, At tbe Cal
gary Irrigation Congress Revelstoke
won the Ilrst prize for district exhibit and incideatly $500.00. Thp exhibit was in charge of W. E. Smith
and W. H. Pottruff.
The margin of winning was very
small. Revelstoke received 64.5;
North Battleford 64,25, and Kelwood,
Man., fill in the district exhibit.
W. E. Smith took second prize for
his exhibit of grain and also second
prise for grasses anil fourth prize for
fruits and vegetables.
The  secretary  of  the  local  association, T. E. L, Taylor, received a telegram    from   tiie deputy minister   of
agriculture, W. E. Scott, as follows:
"Calgary, Alta., Oct. 7. 1914

new waterworks system. In reply
the particulars were read by the city
clei*. as gathered that morning by
the city engineer, J. G. Glenday, and
contained a list of names of 54 married men, 22 single and 5, ot whom
no particulars were given, accounted
for by the fact that the men were
not at hand when the engineer visited the works; 2 had been discharged
that morning. In commenting on
this liBt the council were agreed that
the liet waB a very fair one and fully
carried out the wishes of the council
In that city men only should be em-I
ployed. One man was employed who,
came from Wyclifle but his circumstances were such that Alderman
Horie aaid that the case waB most
deserving. In respect to the single
men it was stated that they all wero
supporting dependents; it waB suggested that the council look into
these statistics of, ihe single men and
see if the facts were aa represented.
Frank Provpiizano was then given
permission to address the council,
and in his remarks said that there
were single men as well as others
among the Italians wbo had been
working for the city for the past
three or four years and that their
livelihood had completely subsisted
from the work. They were ratcpay
ers and no reuBon was forthcoming
why they should be allowed to starve
because hard times had come; in the
paBt when times were good the
Italians were Bought after to do the
dirty work and now they were being
robbed ofitheir legitimate rights. He
wanted the council to be fair In
choosing men to work for them and
ht* thought the Italians should be
given a chance. "I would like to
make a bet that I could pick lo
Italians who would do as much work
as  15 white men," he said.
H. B. Bird also addressed the.fcoun-
eil upon the employment question,
and said that he had been given a
slip from the city clerk to be taken
to tbe foreman'of the works for employment and tbat it was not worth
the paper it was written on. He was
a ratepayer and he could not see
why in giving slips that "ratepayer"
could not be written thereon as a
guide to the contractor in putting
men to work.
Contractor Qoode, representing the
firm of contractors doing the work,
said that he could say this; "That
so far as his firm was concerned they
had gone to more trouble in meeting the requests of the city of Cranbrook than any other contract that
they had ever handled, but they still
wished to do their best to co-operate
with the council in the methods they
wished to pursue t0 relieve the
needy." If he had his way so far
as the, Italians were,concerned, tie
only wished he had 68 of them working on the job for they knew how to
work and some of the men now on
the work were entirely new to it and
did not always make the progress
they otherwise would do if more experienced. So far bb Mr. Bird was
concerned if *e turned up at 7 in the
morning there would be work for him
to do.

ed and presented by the finance committee for payment. The following

J. C. GLENDAY,
City Engineer
On motion of Alderman Hickenbotham 'Und Horie the report was received and tiled.
The question of au auditor was
brought up for consideration and it
was on motion of Aldermen Hicken-
botban and Horie "That the City
Clerk be instructed to offer Mr. J.P.
Sullivan the position of auditor at
a salary of $200.00 for the year 1914
—carried.
On motion of Aldermen Horie and
Campbell it was proposed that the
assessment roll be extended to November Uth and close on that date.
Aldermen Horie and Hickenbotham
moved that Bylaw No. 142 known as
"The Coal Weighting and Wood
Measuring Bylaw" be read the tlrst
time—carried. On motion it was
read a second and third time. Tho
pasaing of this bylaw was felt to be
urgent on account of the season and
so it was put through and now the
signature ol the mayor being attach
ed it becomes law. It would be just
as well if wood merchants became
acquainted with the laws embodied
in this bylaw for their future guld
ance. Only complaints had been re
ceived as to tho measuring of wood
and none with thi1 weighing of coal.
but it was lelt best to embody the
two in one. This bylaw calls for »
Cord of wood with LBS feet cubic
measurement und sold as a cord or
fraction thereof antl not as ricks or
loads,
The council wero brought Uee to
face with a serious problem as to
bow to got in their back taxes. lt
appears that thero is a matter ot between $30,000 and $3;".,DOS back taxes
on tbo books and it was pointed out
that if tins money could be collected
the city would be iu excellent shape
to go on with tho work in hand and
extend it if necessary. It just
amounts to this that if the taxes are
tiot paid next year's taxes will be increased to meet the demands on the
finances of the city when they could
be comfortably lowered if the arrears
were in the treasury.
To meet this diflculty Aldermen
Horie and Genest moved that taxpayers in arrears be notified that if
the arrears for 1912 and 1913 were
not paid by November 1st that tbe
names and amounts be published in
the local newspapers—carried.
Council adjourned 11.15 p.   m.

and tl*; meeting was opened by the
gathering singing "The Maple Leaf
Forever," after which tbe following
took part tn the program:
Miss Vera Bradwin, recitation; J,
F. Broughton, song; Mrs. Laurie, address; Mr. Coutts, song; Rev. O. K.
Kendall, address; Mrs. S. Ryckman,
instrumental; Rev. W. K. Thomson,
address; J. F, Smith, bagpipes,
Mrs. Laurie,,worthy mistress of the
above lodge gave a very able address
in which Bbe brought out the alms
and objects of tbe association as follows:
1. Tbe upholding of the grand
principles of the Protestant religion.
2. To oppose all encroachments on
our public school system.
3. To resist that infamous thing
known as thc Ne Tcmere decree, using our influence for a Federal marriage law, recognising tho validity of
marriages performed hy qualllled
clergymen of tiny religious denomination, or other person vested by tbe
law with thnt power.
4. Our motto.Is )'One Hchun', One
Flag, One Language (the Bnglish)."
5. To be mi Auxiliary to the Orange Association and aid them lu every possible way.
6. To shed our influence for good
wherever we may be placed, to visit
the sick ond do alt in our power to
alleviate suffering and grid' wherevr
found.
7. To care for tbe orphans of Orange brothers and sisters, and to see
that they ale educated tin the Protectant faith, If It is possible for us to
do sn,
h. To try nud stnnrthcn our members, by Inducing as many earnest
Protestant women and voting girls of
hixteen and over to join our lodges,
and thereby do alt we mn to prevent
that deplorable mistake of mixed
marriages, so fruitful of trouble to
nil concerned.
Camo!,, today is a Protestant na
tlon nnd we must endeavor to keep
It so, llie separate school Is nn
necessary and unwarranted. Many
people think the Orangemen and wo
men like to Mnuoy th' Catholics but
that Is not the case as true Orange
men and women are Hurry   Vor   the
Catholics because they know they are '
a deluded people, kept down by the
syBtem of the church in which they
have been born and brought up. Mrs.
Laurie concluded by saying "I hope
that I have gained your interest in
our order in such a way that, you
will wish to join us iu our stand
for Protestantism in Cranbrook,"      ]
Rev. O. }.. Kendall said he had lis-'
toned  with  pleasure to  Mrs,   Laurie's
address nnd was pleased with the ot-
jeets of the association and   glad to
know    that it.    was   a light    giving
agency.   In South America, a. Catholic country, 70 pet  cent  ol all children   wero   born   out   of   wedlock,    and
when   the     United   States  took    over I
Cuba thoy found 80 per cent ofipopu   I
lation  UllgltlmatO,  ami  history    tells i
us that  similar conditions largely up   ,
ply   io all  Catholic countries.   He iol   \
vised   the   ladlOR to  be   tolOMtlt   in all
their  works,  and  do all   becauao   of
lovo.
ltev. W. K. Thomson said lie was
ill sympathy with every! h ng Ibe
worthy mistress had said and Judg
iug by
ing hy the nble addroBsHho Indies as
sociution will do a splendid woik for
Protestantism,   show lhat   you   ure
buoyed up with tb,' belief that you
have   a   true  conception   <'.   life.     The
Ifiucharlstlc Congress, or at least !
•omo phases of it, such as the carrying of the host should never havu
been allowed in n protestnnt Canada
in the 20th century. London refused
it, Canada purmittod it. I'rotestnuts
must bc truo to their principles and
bo tolerant but uot too tolerant.
Just as truoly as Germany had for
years boon quietly preparing for this
war or buying a little land or a
strong position bete and another one
tbere, so the Roman Catholic system
is quietly laying her plans to win
Canada, and on | dny she will dimy'cy
the neutrality of home life, etc., and
endeavor to get control of Canada,
She won (Jueb'.'C by her quiet work
and ber quiet mode of preparation,
The Roman Catholic system cannot
give us freedom-—but oppression and
tyranny. Are the Protestants prepar
ing for the clash.? If we were true
as the Roman Catholics we would
do %J1 in our power to win them to
our faith, but only by love, and not
by being too easy and too tolerant.
Jesus gave us a clear conception ot
liberty and let us take no other than
that for our guide.
At the close of the musical program and addresses the ladies of the
Order served coffee, cake and sandwiches, after which the meeting was
closed by singing "God Save the
King.

Back from Kootenay
The Hon. Thomas Taylor, Minister
of Public Works, returnod yesterday
from u tour of the Kootenay districts. He visited Revelstoke, Nelson, Cranbrook and intervening
points, inspecting the status of various public works which are in progress and informing himself ns to
present conditions and the outlook
for the Winter.
"While thc disruption of the normal position due to the war is, of
course, making Itne'il manifest in the
Interior of the Province, ns well as
at the Coast cities, 1 can assure yon
that I was agreeably surprised to
Hnd the general situation so satisfactory. On all sides there is a determination to see the thing through
aud with everybody co-operating to
make the best of things, matters are
not nearly so bad as they would he
if this courageous spirit were absent.
"I found that the problem of unemployment was not nearly so pressing hs iu tho Coast cities. This la
due, m> doubt, to railwny activity,
which    still    continues.    The  Kettle
River Valley line is making splendid
progress and employing a large
number of men. The C.P.R. is also
omi loying a hit; staff on thc double-
tracking and other undertakings.
THK  KOOTKNAY  CENTRAL  LINK.
"In respect to the Kootenay Central branch of the C.P.R., I was informed that construction throughout
its entire length would be completed
by December 31 and the last spike
driven shortly thereafter. The final
connecting rail will probnbly be laid
at a point about ton miles to the
south of lnvermere.
"The work of constructing the
swing bridge to the north Ol lnvermere is being pushed forward, and
steel is being laid as rapidly ns the
road bed can be made ready. Anchor fuMtitu nillps hiw been taken
over by the operating branch of the
railway, and trains to that part will
be brought forward by the end ot
the present month carrying both
freight and passengers. The telegraph line has been brought to steel-
head, and the system before long
will be in operation to Kdgewatcr.
BANFF-WINDERMERE ROAD.
"The work on the Banfl-Windcrmere
automobile road is being brought to
a conclusion this yenr.   Home seventeen miles have been constructed   on
the,western division, where it   leaves
the) main wagon road from (Jolden to
lnvermere.   About  twenty-two   miles
have been completed on its northern
section,  running from the main  line
of .the C.P.R. at Castle.   In addition I
to this the road haB been "roughed"
out for some further distance on the
western end,  to enable the newly-arrived    settlors pre-empting     In     the
Kootenny River Valley to use it as
a  sleigh    road     during the     Winter,
season.    The   completed  work     wlll'
leave in the neighborhood  of thirty- j
four miles to be tackled next year.
i    "In addition to the natural beauly
of mountain scenery which thc road
passes through in its route across
two mountain ranges, it traverses
points of special interest in the ochre
beds of the Vermilion River, the high
roil cliffs of iron deposits, the picto-
graph marking of ancient tribes, on
their war forages, and thc famous
radio-active Sinclair Hot Springs,
which hnve recently been in part developed.
"Nolson I found to be going along
in a thoroughly satisfactory manner, so characteristic of tbo metropolis of .he Kootenays. This is one of
the most solid and promising centres in the Interior and unquestionably hns a Bplendld future. Its citizens have recently inaugurated n
wceKly market scheme, as you   have
in   Victoria     anil   T    waa   *oM   ♦hnfr     )♦
is proving quite the success anticipated. An especial etlort is being
made to drive out the Chinese vegetable peddler, who has bcen too aggressive a competitor against the.
white farmer and rancher.
"The people of Nelson are entering
into the work of lending a helping
hand in the war with the fame patriotic fervor as obtains in the Const
cities. While I was there they were
making arrangements to form a lo-
cal branch of the Red Cross society.
"The fruit growers in Nelson and
vicinity are preparing to take an aggressive part in the campaign to sell
more apples, which has been inaugurated by the Dominion Oovernment.
Twenty-eight boxes of prize fruit
from the 'display at the twelfth nn
nual Nelson Fruit Fair bave been
shipped to Oalgary, where they are
on view at  tho Irrigation Congress.
"The armory at Nelson hns boon
re-opened on instructions received
from the D.O.C. at Victoria. Col.
Roy, nml drilling and training of
volunteers for ibe second contingent
will take [dace at once."-Colonist.

The Homeland's Call
By Ronald McCatfcill.
Hearken, ye whelps of the Lion!
Stir ye, awake Irom your dream;
Hark to the world-flung challenge,
List to the eagle's scream:
Thrown in the teeth of the nations
Terrible; menacing; grim:
Henr ye the words of defiance,
Hurled to the Empire's rim?
"Stand from the path of my southern mate.
Stand aside lest ye be too luto
And I tear thee limb from limb,"
Hearken, ye whelps of the Lion,
Hear ye his arrogant cry?
"Where is there one to dare me,
One who'll do battle and die?
Pear I the bear that was conquered,
Cowed by the Binall yellow man?
Heed I the squeaks of an upstart
I ground in the dust of Sedan?
Who   talks   to   me   of   the Lion's
sway?
A lion's cubs may be eagle's prey!
And mercy is mine ()f my plan."
Hearken, ye whelps of the Lion,
What says thy mother's roar?
"Who is this Teuton boaster
To prate so loud of war?
Long bnve I stood Itis insults,
Long have 1 leashed my might
But never brooked dishonored pence.
The time has come to fight!
Rise then ye whelps of the Lion's
Thy mother's cnll  is the Empire's
need
And battle for the right!
"Send me tiie men from the Southern Cross
Eager to do their part;
Send me  my    sons from th9   frozen
north,
Men of the mighty heart.
Give me the men from the sun-baked
veldt,
Bred to'the rifle's crack;
Send me alike both rich and poor;
No fear that men I'll lack; <
Making one cause with my sons a^
home,
Warring   on   land   or on salt   sea
foam,
To fight for the Union Jack."
Maclean's Magazine, October.
RUSSELL AND RUSSELLISM
Mr. Editor:
Your generosity in the matter of
space for letters for 'and against RusselUsm is most commendable. In
view of the large income gathered
from the members !of this cult—some
$202,000 annually—and its vigorous
propagation, a If.'atthy discussion of
its merits and demerits is opportune.
But, the difficulties of presenting the
ma"""   »'ft   sufficient   lotiwth   1*2'     P'ImIi
are many, therefore through your
kindness we invite all purchasers of
hooks on the doctrines of Russcllism,
nnd all who are interested' t0 any degree in it, to attend the Baptist
church in this city on Sunday evening next when the pastor will present Some Facts whlcb all should
know. These Facts, exposing Russell
and Russellism, are such as can be
substantiated in a court of law if
necessary,

Pruning Schools
In view of the success which attended the pruning schools conducted
in the province during the spring of
this year by the department Qf agriculture the department has announced,
that it will offer tbe courses again.
The qualifications necessary to become a pupil at the school are that
the pupils be willing to do pruning
work, that Iw be connected with an
orchard where he will work as a
primer or foitynun in charge of orchard work or that he be an orchard-
1st or permanent resident whose prun
Ing school experience will be of benefit to the district as a whole. The
following nre the conditions upon
which a school will he established:
"Tbe department of agriculture will
provide a competent instructor and
ray his expenses. The local administration of the pruning schools will he
placed iu the bunds of n responsible
local body, such as the fanners' Institute, the fruit growers' association
or the board of trade, wbo will Iw
responsible for tbe guarantee of a
minimum of ciglit pupils, but not
more thnn 11, with the proper qiial.
I float I onn, nt n fee of $2 each, to ta'tto
10 lessons of three hours a lesson,
the school extending over live days.
Wliere tbe number of pupils in a district justifies, two pruning schools
may he arranged for in which tbe
minimum gltaranttiJ will be It; pupils
und  not o.er 21.
Besides the actual practise In the
orchard, of which tbe course wilt con
sist chiefly, where the pupils wlll
prune trees tinder the supervision of
tbe lllfltriiotor, there wlll be lectures
in t*li«! theory of pruning, which will
Include talks on pruning as related
to the formation of fruit hud* ami tn
plant growth, nis,, tho subject nf top
grafting undesirable varieties will be
lealf.   wltll,  along  with   mnny  other
I oliits  of  Interest,
The pupils will provide tlHr own
(■ruling tools, tbe necessary tools being a pnlr of priming shears, n uuw
nml a pocket whetstone. A pruning !

Means Moderation
Lenient Jo^ Debtors
Much satisfaction is expressed in
financial ami commercial circles at
Lhe fact that British Columbia is in
the fortunate position of not yet
having had to resort to the principle of the moratorium, this being
apropos of a London press cable
setting out thut British financial circles wnni'i vUm with aiaem thn introduction of the system in western
Canada, in view of tbe fact thut
much British capital is invested in
mortgnges and other securities. The
general 'feeling throughout the province, as far as it can he ascertained,
is that tho policy enunciated by the
Premier, Sir Richard McBrlde, a few
days ago, is the correct one to be
followed at the present timo. This
is, ia brief, thnt while the moratorium shall not mist now he invoked,
the government shall take cognisance
of any harsh and needlessly aggressive actions agaiust debtors, nml
that, if the situation demands it, legislation will be sought to provide
thc remedy, bucIi legislation to he
retroactive in its scope.
As indicating that this declaration
on the part of tho provincial govern*
ment is likely to prove adequate, it.
may be mentioned that at Vancouver
following tbe policy 0f showing consideration to parties who aro undergoing foreclosure, which Mr. Justice
Clement has put in force since tbe
declaration of wnr, His Lordidiip
gave several parties three months to
meet a final order, where ordinarily
thirty days are only given. In other
cases where an order niat only w
being asked, His Lordship suggested
leniency to the applicants.
In ono case In which an order of
foreclosure wns demanded, tho defendant had pnid $3,700 on a $0,800
purchase of land, and the solicitor
asked for foreclosure within 30 dnys.
"Thirty days Is all right in good
times, but It is not enough today.
Resides this mnn hns got a BUbstan
tlal interest in this property. He
must have three months," declared
His Lordship.
"But we have already shown him
lell nicy. Twice we have agreed lo
let him hnve time on Ids promise to
pny, nnd each time be hus fulled,"
nrgued the solicitor.
That, shows he is anxious lo Iio
tho property;nml pay   ymi oif   If   '10
can raise    the    umiicy.     lle   should
Imve   three   months," roturtod   tlio
Judge.
In another euse where a defendant
had paid $1,(100 nn a $3,300 pur
(■base, an enquiry showed that ' <■
hnd only been in default nlni'e;.luly
if this yeur.
"Thnt is a clear case for allowing
tbe defendant tbree months In wblch
to meet Ills obligations," nnid the
Judge.
1 would feci like making lhe term
longer, only t am aware tlml In
many "f thtWO canes to defer Justice
menus hardship to the plaintiff who
bas obligations to n t,   Just ns   to
grant justice means a   hardship   mi
defendants. But I think all reasonable consideration should be
shown where a plaintiff hns made
substantial payments," said His
Lordship during thc discussion, of the
case.
In another caso where three months
were allowed, tbe defendants had
paid $1,000 on a $3,150 purchase,
and were $210 and interest in arrears.
All tho above cases were in regard to agreements to purchase land.
In the ease of mortgages which are
threatened with foreclosure, there" is
a statutory provision which allows u
defendant six months between the
time the order nisi is taken out and
accounts passed and the time the
final order for foreclosure is made.

It was felt that, the Veterans' Brigade should be disbanded in Cran
brook, the members thought that the
usefulness of its members would be
much greater in the volunteer move
ment now being promoted in the city
or in any work that was active in
the military cause. ThiB was owine
to the unwillingness of the original
members to take upon themselves the
various offices necessary to its success and the few that attended its

"HARD TIMES" DANCE
Now that we arc having hard times
everyone should patronize the "Hard
Times" dance. Little, If any, clothes
are required, and the more dissolute
the more likely they are to gala a
prize, lt is a well known fact that
people are known hy their companions, but this is the exception that
proves the existence of a rule, and
one's companions In this coming
dance may be Just as distinguished
ethically as their clothes are demoralized actually, so tho only thing to
be dono Ib to accept the gifts the
god's give and enjoy what is sure to
be there, good music, a good floor and
good partners; what more can anyone want?
WAR AND THE
 ADVERTISER
The Westminster Gazette has a very
Incisive article on thc subject of advertising during the war. it is too
long for reproduction, but Its main
argument ls well worth mentioning. It
speaks of the ill effect produced since
the outbreak of war by a number of
firms who have ceased to advertise,
thus dislocating the business machinery of thc country, giving less work
to the printer, tlio paper-maker, thc
hill-poster, thc advertising agents, Increasing distress and unemployment.
Wiser firms havo adopted a different
policy, viz., to reach out for new mar-
, kets by additional advertising. The
Westminster Gazette claims tbat business houses which have followed this
policy arc doing their part to reduce
the Inevitable harm of war. Tbey are
the only ones who are living up to
the motto, "Business as Usual," and
they will come through the war
strengthened and with enhanced reputation. At no time Is advertising
more likely to poduce permanent results. New needs are being revealed
by the war; markets wblch have bcen
closed to us are now open; advertising Is part of the normal machinery
of every prosperous business; It represents tbo cheapest, the quickest
and the most certain means of acquiring new business. Prosperity will
not come to the man who does nothing to evoke It, but to him who lets
the world know that he Is In business.
that he Intends to remain iu business,
and that those who wish to do business will find him eager nnd willing in
their service, ln an editorial during
tha early part of the week The Victoria Colonist enforced this same
view, and pointed to the fact that It
was carrying more outside advertising
tban ever before. This shows that
those in the best position to judge
that there I? business to be done, lt
also showi? that they recognise advertising as the legitimate means 0!
getting their share.

further particulars suppressed by order ol Jim Thlstleboak, war correspondent,
Whilst the greatest war rages that
history ever recorded, financial affairs and the minds of the people are
almost paralyzed and little attention
ls paid to any other maters until the
pinch ot necessity ls felt, the timid
and weak-minded Imagine lt Is a sin
to think, speak or read of anything
else, but it ts well to bear in mind
that there are many phases of patriotism. The valiant fighters and the
hungry multitude must be fed. lf
we allow ourselves to become stupl-
iled and paralyzed with the contemplation of the appalling magnitude of
the greatest struggle the earth has
ever known, we sink to the lowest
depth of uselessness; yet this condition prevails and is caused primarily
by fear and apathy. Politicians try to
show their patriotism by declaring
that nothing must be considered but
war. That is sheer nonsense when we
see hungry multitudes willing to become producers and thereby provide
the sinews of war, which if properly
directed, their idleness instead of being as it is a source of weakness may
be made a source of mighty strength.
Hungry multitudes in droves hasten
to the cities because there Is no employment for them on the land.
Government paternalism has been
sneered at by those of narrow perception and short slghtedness; yet
the principle has been recognized as
correct by thc greatest authorities,
and practical experience has shown
that it has lifted countries from poverty to affluence. For example, Denmark. True the principle will not
convert the ordinary work-dodger into a thrifty industrious farmer, but it
would give a chance for all to work
and produce, and those who will not
do that should not be allowed to eat.
Can any reason be advanced why an
attempt should not be made to utilize
the thousands of acres of productive
land now idle, to provide work for willing workers. Or why some assistance
should not be given to the industrious
settlers, poverty stricken in their endeavors to find the means ot subsist-
ance during their life's work ot pulling stumps and preparing a farm or
orchard, many such cannot afford to
buy a pig or a cow, and yet arc surrounded by one of the finest cattle
ranges on earth. Money advanced to
such on their Improved land, with a
lien on cattle the government might
supply, would be one of the best investments for benefits to be derived
by the farmer, the people and the
government.
It would attract and encourage
people from the cities to the land.
It would lift an enormous burden
off the struggling hard-working settler and make htm prosperous and
happy.
It would provide a permanent
source of Income for the government
In many ways.
It would attract and sustain attendant Industries which always follow prosperous agricultural operation the smokeless chimneys and silent factories would be no more.
It wold provide work for Idle railway employees and thouaands ot others.
It would provide the merchants with
business from many sources now
dried up.
It would make thc country self-
sustaining, Instead ot Importing and
existing on borrowed capital.
It  would export and handle real

neutrality would bc respected, and
yet within 48 hours the samo Von
Buelow delivered the German ultimatum! Of course tbe Belgians were
offered indemnity for the passage of
the German troops through their
country; but they naturally refused
to assist because such a course was
tantamount to declaring war , on
France. Thc Germans got angry and
declared they would hack their way
through Belgium nnd this they proceeded to do.
Then Belgium appealed to Britain
to aid them. Could Britain refuse?
Could she break her pledge to help?
Could she stand aside and see the doctrine, "might Is right," put Into practise: Would It have bcen right to
calmly witness Belgium dismembered, her soldiers helplessly slain, her

thc abolition of war must not only be

under any circumstances avoid fighting (or our position in the world, and
the all-important Is not to postpone
that war as long as possible, but to
bring it on under the most favorable
conditions possible." "France must
be so completely subdued tbat she can
never come acrosB our path." These
quotations will make it evident what

"It is true that with respect to the

He stated his opinion that the United States Is unprepared for any kind

1 The coalition of the Herald and

purely economic reasons. politics
has no part in the scheme, the intention of the management being that
an attempt be made to raise the
status of the paper above party politics. If this policy is approved by
the people a pnper of ABSOLUTE
rNDHPENDBN( K will be maintain
ed; but this depends entirely upon the
financial support accorded by the
people. Owing to the extraordinary
depression in business tbe financial
aflairs of both papers have recently
been unsatisfactory, ond it was decided by the proprietors of both papers to close the Prospector and to
operate the Herald under the title of
the "Cranbrook Herald and Pros
pector," An agreeable arrangement
was made with Mr, Thompson to retain his position as manning editor
and the workmen to receive reiiuiner
ation on the co-operative plan with
an additional bonus if a pioiit was
•nade by the business. For reasons
i n mown Mr. Thompson on Wednes

In last week'B Issue of the Prospector we quoted Frnnk Provenzano
as having said: "I would like to
make a het that I could pick 10
Italians who would do as much work
as 15 white men." This should have
read "I would like to make a bet
that I could pick 10 Italians who
would do as much as 15 Englishmen
now at worn on the streets." An
Italian ls as much as a white man
as an Englishman and we beg leave
to make the correction.
Even thieves are showing patriotism In this great crisis, and Robert
Wallace, K.C, addressing the grand
iury ut the London session, complimented them. "Praise Ih duo to the
criminals for the restraint they are
exercising during this period ol stress
and anxiety. There has been a d:-
crease of nearly 40 per cent In crime
In the county ol London, a fact which
gives satisfaction to all who have the
Interests ol th1) country at heart.
A letter in optimistic und advisory
terms  hns  Just  been  issued  to the
'leople of western Canada by George J.
Bury, vice-president of the Canadian j
Pnclflc In   charge  of   western   lines. |
"My personal advice is that this Is n '
time when  people should, nbove all
things, holds their heads.    The west I
this  year will; receive more lor Its
crops and cattle then last year. For-
elgn capital  will not come in  until:
nfter the war hut 1 do not know that
this Is nn unmixed evil.   I believe leg!-i
timate business wlll not suffer on ac-!
count of the wnr nnd thnt effective j
steps taken by the government will
make a monetary  crisis   impossible.
Tlic  empire's  existoncc   Is  at  ntake j
and every one must present a bold
and cheerlul front nnd be prepared
for every sacrifice should the worst
come, and that appears impossible."
Quite a number of subscribers are
.behind with their renewal subscriptions. We urgently need the money
at this time of stringency, and as the
Individual amount Is small, lt should
cause little trouble to those In arrears to pay the printer nnd make
themselves solid with tlic editor for a
first-class obituary notice—in case
the Germans get you.

ASK REMISSION OF FINE.
J. F. Morris, an insurance agent, I
was this morning lined $400 and costs
by Magistrate Shaw (or bavin); issued two policies ln an unregistered
Insurance compnny. In imposing the
lines, Magistrate Shaw remarked that
he thought that Mr. Morris wns but
technically guilty nnd thnt he wo lid ;
join with Crown Prosecutor W. M,
McKay In urging upon the attorney-
general that thc tines bc remitted.
lt appears Irom the evidence given
that Mr. Morris who wub reprc«nt-
ing registered bonrd companies, in-!
mired the contents i if n building for
$9,000. Later the underwriters and
insurance companies cancelled the iu
surnnce. Mr. Morris wub nsked by
the insured to secure for him re-ln-
surunco in nnothoi' company, nnd endeavored to do so. Flunlly he was
told that Seeley a Company would
accept insurance of (2000 nnd ta
oblige his client he plnced that risk
with them.
Mr. Morris wns summoned lor having placed tho Insurnnre which wns
In two policies In unregistered companies.
Magistrate Shnw snid that ' e
thought thnt it was only technical
guilt on tho part of Mr. Morris, but
ai the section of tho net did not. give
him any option, he must tine him
$100 and costs on ench charge His
worship remarked thnt ho would
concur In tho suggestion of Crown
Prosecutor McKay that representations be mnde t0 thc nttnrney-gennrnl I
for (n remission of the line.   .

MOYIE
The weather (or the past week haB
heen bright ami warm; but on Friday
it changed and rain and wind prevailed since th';n.
Mr. Norton, the Methodist missionary here, went to Kingsgate on Saturday to hold services there. He re-
turned on Sunday afternoon and held
service here in the evening which was
well attended considering the stormy
weather.
That Moyie is not behind the times
is I shown by the fact that a special
Thanksgiving service wbb held in the
Methodist church here which was well
attended.
The church was prettily decorated
with llowers and special music was
furnished by  the choir.
That hnrd times does not eflect the
residents of Moyie, may be seen by
the fact that two of our citizens,
Messrs. Rates nn 1 Nutt have recently
n estet! in pianos for thoir homes.
This shows confidence In the place
and may be ta'ien as a good omen.
Mrs. Swings, who has been dangerously ill is now rcrovering fast ami
her many friends will hi1 pleased to
learn that she will soon be about th.1
houBe ;ij:ain.
