A recommendation from City Engineer i-ai'ker, tbat Mr. J. C. Olcn-
uay'B salaray be increased. Mr. Glen-
tiay has been in tbe employ of tbe
city for some two years and has
betn only receiving $2.i5 per day for
Ins services, and Mr. Parker certainly felt that the time had come when
Mr. Glenday was worthy of the citya
best consideration. On motion of
Aldurnun Atchison and Campbell it
was resolved that bis salary be increased to $3,50 per day beginning
March 1st, I912.-Carried.
The Health and Relief committee
reported tbat they had seen the
Sister Superior of the St. Eugene
Hospital in regard to what special
privileges tbo CitizenB of Cranbrook
were to have ln the pest house accommodations; and that the Sister
had replied, tbat the city would receive the same privileges as were
given to the Provincial Government.
The grant promised by the council of

motion of Aldermen Campbell and
Atchison ordered paid.
The John Gait Engineering Co., in
charge of sewerage construction reported that at the present time some
31 man-holes had heen completed.
That as soon as the Frost was out

proceeded with, and the sewar completed as soon as possible.
Mayor Bowness, reported tbat
within a few days, that he would be
in a position to announce that the
differences between the city and the
Electric Light Co., was satisfactorily Battled,
Tbe request from the band that the
yearly grant be made to them as
previously done was referred over
until after tho estimates for the year
was brought down, this will probably be done before the next meeting
of the council. It waB reported that
under tbe able leadership of Mr. H.
W. Ruesell the band ls improving,
and will certainly he a credit to the
city when they make their first appearance In public,
Taking up the topic of a city park
where they left off at the last meeting of the council the Aldermen were
unanimous in tbe opinion tbat the
marsh lands which lay to the south
and west of the city could be appropriated nnd formed Into an Ideal park
At present this land to all Intents and,
purposes was absolutely no good but
with the building of a dam of about
200 feet thla could be turned Into a
splendid lake largo enough for the
public to have row boats, and oven
small motor boats. Around the
sides could be made a line drive und
promenndc, and be a perlcct idoal
spot, lor all plcuBttro Hookers.
This would undoubtedly bo a splendid ndlnnct to tho present city Improvements and lm a monument to

Thomas Caven
Candidate for Cranbrook's Electoral District
Conservatives Ready for Fight
At the Liberal Convention the Party was not at One
with each other as to what should
be their Platform
Conservative ready lor Fight
The Conservatives ol Crnnhrook'
district have compioted arrangements
for the nominating convention which
will be held in Cranbrook next week,
No announcement of a Liberal con-
vention has been made, and it is expected that as soon as lt is known
that Mr. Caven, the present member, j
receives tho nomination, that there!
will be no Liberal candidate placed
in the field; and thnt Mr. Caven will
be elected by acclamation.
Government's Aim
Premier McBrlde and Hon W. J.
Bowser are now touring West Kootenay. "It doesn't matter whether
we carry constituencies hy ncclama-
tlon or   not," said    Mr.     McBride.
Every exertion will ho put forth bo
that the country will he fully apprised of all the details and the full significance of the railway policy. I am
In receipt of wires from all parts of
the province Invariably strongly commendatory of tho government's plan
and promising support as strong If
not Btronger character than we received In the last election.
Tho people of British Columbia
unquestionably tec! that the administration fully realizes its responsibilities and has but one aim, that of the
general welfare of the people.
The measures lately advanced by
our parliament ore perhaps more na-
tlonnl thnn provincial. For Instance,
the railways which wo nre arranging
tor make lor the linking up ol trann-
rontlnnntal connections. Tho forests,
wntor and land acts, too, all refer
to our natural resources ntid the other bills for tho most, pnrt would scorn
to mnko lor Oen.dinn rather than
llrltlsh Columbian expansion and development. Wo havo boon ever mindful of the tact thai tblK provlnre In
part nnd parcel of Can,tdn nnd whatever sciiemo of expansion and development has hem undertaken it Una
been for the development of tho Do
minion as woll.
With rognril to tho Island, tho
maln'and, tho Interior, the Kootenays nnd tho northern part ol tho
province I can easily speak with perfect conOdonee for tho future. Vancouver, which Is thn Cnnndinn wonder city, Ib nbont to cntor upon an
era that will outdo nnv of ber ninr-
veloits past accomplishments,      Nnw
Westminster, Kamloops, Vernon, Nel
son, Revelstoke, Cranbrook, Fernle,
and the Boundary cities are all going
to have their full share in the prosperity era now opening.' As '.o Prince
Rupert, the dally record that: she
gives out Is surely, srmcient evidence
of how well things are doing there."
Their Record  Against Them
Fuller reports ol the Liberal convention indicate that the platform
and resolutions adopted Include practically everything that might be expected to catch a vote, although until the otllcial version ol tho accepted planks is published not even the
delegates themselves know precisely
what is the policy of the Liberal Party ns laid down liy the convention.
The fullest reports of the convention
that are available show that almost
every question brought forth resolutions and counter resolutions and
there seems to be no clear idea as to
what was eventually adopted. Every
conceivable subject from womans suffrage to the construction of government owned elevators appear to
have been dealt with and even tho
I,il,, nil ncwBpapcrB at tho sent of
action disagree as to tho terms of
the rcsolutionn adopted.
The convention wnn evidently not
lacking in humor. One of the planks
of the platform linnlly accepted wob.
according to the Vnnroiivcr Run, tho
"complete prohibition of Oriental
labor." Among the delegates to the
convention wns Hon. Wm. Tomplo-
mnn, who ns n member of the Laur-
inr government vetoed tho Nntnl Act
passed by the McMrlde government
nnd did nil thnt wns possible to
thwart tho efforts (il the provincial
ndmlnist.rntl, n to secure the "complete prohibition of Oriental labor."
Not only did tbo convention ln
which Mr. Temple,,mn was n shining
Galley Heven
light ndvncntc a policy which he,
when In otllce, did nil that was pns-
slhlo to nullify, but it also passed
a resolution lauding bin meritorious
services. In tbo same breath it advocates the exclusion of orientals ond
praise tbo work of Mr. Templemnn
in making exclusion Impossible,
No doubt, the convention hoped
thnt by passing a platitudinous resolution expressing hostility tt, oriental labor It would put     itnelf right
with the province upon a question
ol surpassing interest. But unfortunately the Liberal record is too black
and the good work of the McBrlde
government too well understood. The
McBride government has dune everything possible to exclude orientals.
It was the Liberal government at
Ottawa that disallowed its legislation and insisted on keeping the
gates of Canada open to oriental immigrants.
In every manner possible the McBrlde government Ims striven to preserve a white British Columbia nnd
to discourage nrimtnl labor. When
the Laurier government in its r
tract with the Grand Trunk Pacific
permitted tho employment nl oriental
labor on construction it was the McBrlde government tbnt. secured nt,
agreement with tli'1 company whirl,
prohibited the employment of olen
tala. In nil lho rontrncts that the
McBride government has made with
the railway corporations it hns in
slsted on tho inclusion of clauses fnr
bidding the employment of orientals
on construction or in operation.
First, laat and nil the time it. lint'
stood for tho principle of a while
British Columbia and the Liberals nt
Ottawa, endorsed bv the lenders of
the party in tbe province, bnve bee,'
the chief obstacle with which it hns
had to contend. Tbo. Conservative
record must secure the hearty support of all who believe in preserving
British Columbia for the white raco.
The Liberal record h.in earned only
hearty  condemnation.—Nelson   News.

The Empire Electrical Company,
under the management of Maurice
Qttain began its prosperous career on
the 1st of June last, and has continued prospering until today, notwithstanding opposition lias branches in
Medicine Hat and Fernie, and at present is considering greater plans of
development. Ab it is impossible to
obtain certificates of incorporation
for such names as Royal, or Empire
the company resolved to recall the

The purpose of this company with a

The interest of a town or city and
the community are indentical. That
which benefits one is certain to favor
the other, often there is an unreasonable antagonism in the farming
community acainst their own town.
From some ineiplainable reason the}
consider it their duty to oppose every movement tbat has for its object the forwarding of its Interests
and depreciate its importance in
every conceivable man'nel. Fortunately tn this community all of onr
best and most progressive ranchers

eat in the city and are aa enthusiastic in wishing it success and exercising their energlcB to attain that end

Fort Steele's Progress and
Enterprize Shown By Numerous Citizens
Fort Steele.—Although lt ls still
the last month of winter, lt might
be said quite truthtully that here at
least spring has come. There ,was an
unusually heavy [all ol snow early in
November, with a tew days o( keen
aero weather which was followed by
a thaw, putting tbe runners, about
town at least, into temporary retirement. Gradually, however, the snowfall Increased, nud the merry s'.elgb
bells were again heard. But the temperature kept well above zero Kith
plenty o( bright sunny days until
Dec, 29, wben the mercury took a
sudden drop and kept below zero (or
the first 12days o( January. Thn lowest point touched hero was 32 boluw.
There was also quite a heavy (all of
snow, which kept the sleighing good
until now, allowing logging un 1 tie
cutting and other operations :u the
woods go on brlskley and without
hindrance. Fort Steele has to Its
credit therelore to date at leust eli
weeks of Ideal winter weather, during which the average (rost, wr.nthcr
was from 12 to 20 above zero, never
at any time tailing below, and frequently even at night showing no
more than two degrees ol (rost or
none. People, therelore, are Imly
justified in claiming that taken all in
all nowhere can a bettor climate he
lound than right here ln the Kootenay Central valley.
The Kootenay Central has already
mgde a beginning on ita [uture work
the carrying ol freight—eoal, hay
and oats lor the contractors. Ilaliis-
tlng of the roadbed has not vet ol
course been done and cannot lie until
the (rost ls fully out ot the ground.
Rip-rap work has begun, Burns &
Jordon having secured this in addition to their grading contract northward. On this considerable preparatory work baa already been done and
very soon the steam shovels will be
In active operation.
Among the new towns platted on
the new line, that at the crossing of
the Bull river ia not going to be the
least important. The large sawmill
on the opposite side of the Kootenay
river, operated by tho C.P.R., ia being moved to the new town. The new
building almost ready occupies a
most advantageous position close to
tbe smaller river on which a splendid
dam Ib being erected (or the bolding
of logs. Another dam (or irrigation
purposes Ib being thrown across Little Bull river high up on the bench
above. On theso works and in tbe
logging and tie camps up tho main
river more than 600 men are employed In this business being tributary to
the new town. Like everything else
ol thlB kind undertaken by tho big
company, a number ol very niet nnd
substantial buildings gave been erec-
tedted. First ol those is the long
warehouse already tilled with dry
goods, groceries and other supplies
lor ths camps: a fine large office
building and several excellent buildings (or the officials of the company.
The townsite ls a pretty and most
attractlvs one on the south side ol
the river and ere long lt will be
equipped with all modern conveniences. There are already two private stores and a rostaurant and a
large hotel is being planned for a
well known resident of ths district.
Another nsw town to be, Is Wasa,
already    well and   favorably known

Travellers who havo been so fortunate as to experience the warmth ot

own, and nearby there is a charming
little lake which In time to come
will provide plenty o( (un and
exercise summer and winter lor his
But tbe pearl ol all the towns that
will dot the beautiful scenic route o(
the Kootenay Central Is undoubtedly
the town that received Its name (rom
the (anions leader ol the Strathcona
Horse, that ls Fort Steele. Its site
Is proverbial (or its natural beauty,
and time baa proved It tbe most salubrious residential town ln all this
section ol tbe province. It has pure
water supply, small, but certain to
be extended and Improved. Its electric light system is still on paper tjut
is sure to become a material (act. It
will be tbe "white coal" system, and
flower may be derived (rom Wild
Horse or Irom the famous Henderson
plant at Bull river which has just
been sold to a strong Chicago company. The town has been somewhat
quiet in the past, but as the centre
o( the best agricultural section ol the
valley, backed by its well known
mining resources and now supplied
with Its long lought railway, there
is no room to doubt the future growth and importance ol the town aa a
business centre.
The mild winter has allowed the
Bridges Lumber Co. to finish Its fine
building on Main street, tbe largest
and best mercantile building ln town
and lt is now being occupied. This
company Ib planning (or other buildings during the year and there are
rumors ol others to be erected as
Boon as spring comes.
North Star Masonic lodge hae Just
purchased the building In which they
have been tenants (or many years
and will at once greatly Improve It
ln appearances and in its accommodation lor lodge and (or certain public purposes.
The new Church o( England build

her late husband, has very generously doubled the amount of money in

church and repaint tha exterior. The

An electric railway Is being planned to connect Cranbrook with the
Kootenay Central at Fort Steele.
The bridges thrown across the St.
Mary's river at Fort Steele l are a
credit to the public works department o( the government and to the
bridge gang and has been a great
convenience to the residents on the
north side of the river. The department ls also planning some needed
reclamation work on the river.
