The gist of their explanation wns
that tho trouble originated really
last AgUflt, wben u couple of representatives of the Industrial Workora
of the World established themselves
at Lytton and began persuading the
men to join that organization, Kn-
tranee fee was $1 each nnd the dues
60 ccits per month. As the money
came in from these sources, secretaries and other agitators were employ-
trial workers of the World lenders
and only yielded through fear of being maltreated.
Information received today at the
encineorini* offices of the Canadian
Northern railway in Vancouver, is to
the effect that the strikers have also
committed other Illegal acts, indicating that the trouble promises to become more acute as they got out   of
* led and permanent headquarters were
{established at Lytton. The contrac-
were aware that these thinga were going on but had no idea of the progress that the mischief had run until
on Thursday lust. The contractors
lilleged that, as a matter of fart,
there were not more than 20 active
agitators engaged in the whole business. The men made no demand lor
increased wages or anything else.
They simply quit their work and as
the crowd increased they went from

A meeting of the City Council wai
held in the Council Chamber <m Monday afternoon, Mayor A.C. BowneflB
presided, with Aldermen Johnson,
Clapp und  Atchison in attendance.
Minutes of Inst regular monthly
meeting whs read and on motion
adopted as read.
There being u delegation from the
Board of Trade in waiting, permission
was granted them to address the
council. Mr. W. P. Gurd, chairman
of tbe delegation, briefly outlined
what the Board of Trade was doing
and what they proposed doing along
the lines of publicity; also trying to
show the council the possibilities of
tbe district nud the dire need of having a publicity man, who would devote tbe whole of bis time to tbe
work. But to do this it was first
necessary to have a guarantee of income and n certain amount of surplus guaranteed for advertising and
travelling expenses and the reason
that the delegation waB instructed to
wait on the council at this time was
to ask them to donate the sum of
$5,000 for this purpose.
Mr. Ira Manning, also a member
ot the delegation said: that there wus
u reul need for such a man to look
ufter the packing of fruit for the
market, ns for instance there was a
case that arose last fall whore a man
with others had grown so much fruit
that the local market for the time
was over-crowdod, and some had to
be shipped to Calgary. The man being inexperienced, knew very little
about pncklng and had to get what
noelstnnce be could. Now if this publicity man could be had, one of his
duties would be to keep posted on
market conditions, nnd inform the
grower where he could hnd the best
market, also the best manner of
packing fruit, thus giving the farmers of the district the necessary information that would place them in
condition that they might compete
with the older and more experienced
fruit growers.
Mr. P. Lund, of Wardner, addressed the council, nnd during his somewhat lengthy remarks said that the
council nnd people should give tbe
proposition their heartiest support,
T am confident thnt Southeast Kootenay wilt develope from now on
very rapidly and it is important that
such a matter should be attended to
at once.
I hnve some 2*10 acres in Wardner,
and the same in Marysville, that are
growing garden produce nt the present time under the most adverse conditions because they nre subjected to
the two extremes of the climate, hot
nnd cold, nnd still they are to bo
very favorably compared with the
best in the district.

Fires Revolver In Commons
An extraordinary occurrence took
place recently In the British House of
Commons, which for h few minutes
caused the greatest consternation
among the members and the crowd of
visitors in the lobbies. A man, whose
clerical attire was partly concealed
by an overcoat, suddenly discharged
a revolver In thn nlr. He waB Immediately seized by a pollen constable,
who nlnued his arniB to his side and
prevented him from firing another
shot, the weapon wan taken from htm
and he was conveyed to Cannon Row
police station and charged with wilfully discharging a revolver in the
houses of parliament.
He had boon sitting In the hall
about three bourn and tbe strangeness of hln behavior hnd attracted ut*
tentlon. An he wan being removed he
shouted an Incoherent statement to
tho effect thnt he wan the- Mosslah.

According to persons who were present in the central hall, he wae beard
would be ln condition to know if the
city finances would warrant it being
done. But be wanted to say to them
thut he could not give them
very much hopes of this amount being grnnted, however, he would put
the matter before the council at tbe
proper time for their earnest consideration.
Mr. Gurd thanked tbe Mayor and
council for their patient hearing and
their courteous nttention, but before
retiring would soy that although the
sum of $5,000 may seem large, it wns
only a very smnll amount to be devoted to this purpose, when compared with what other cities wero doing
along this line.   Thank you.
The question of having n cleaning
day for the city wna brought up but
after much discussion It wns decided
not to have a special day, but that
the health officer and the chief of
police would see that everyonn who
hnd allowed garbage and rubbish to
accumulate on thetr premises would
be instructed to have it removed at
once. It was siifrtreBted that thi3
must be done by May 1st.
Another matter was brought to
the attention of the council, thnt

Home undeveloped possibilities of
advertising were touched upon by
Hir Asbton Lister, wbo speaking nt
the luncheon of the agricultural show
at Bristol, England, mentioned the
case of a west of England farmer,
who was surprised on visiting London, to find apples, which he had regarded ns practically worthless, nicely packed for sale at four hIitilings a
dozen. Hir Asbton went on to emphasize tbe need there was not only
to develope tbe producing aide of ftgrl
culture, but also to develop the selling and advertising side, it is Indeed nstonlNbitig to know thut so
much Colonial and American fruit, is
sold in England to the detriment of
British fruit growers, but tbls sld-
of tbingH could be speedily romldled
if British farmers would enrage lu
some kind of co-operatlvo advertising enterprise.—There is n deep lesson in the above which all Kootenay
fruit growers can take well to heart

One of the largest gatherings tn the
history of the Board of Trade took
place in the Council Chamber last
Tuesday evening and for a time it
looked us though something might be
doing, and that tbe Board, at last
got flown to real business In the In
terests of the general community at
large. But as we are informed by thp
Secretary ol the Board "There was
nothing much doing, nothing more or
leas that shooting of a lot of hot
nlr." One after another express their
opinion on various subjects, mul wt
are told thnt "it didn't amount tinmen."

what the Hoard are going to do with

the council to grant. "Nothing doing", Yet the Hoard wants a $5,000
grant, and will appeal to the rate
payers for it; they will ask thn rate

Christmas and Easter stands more

than any others. Throughout all the

While Raster reminds us of the resurrection, it may benefit us all to
call fresh to memory a few tacts regarding the burial of the Hon of Cod.
Joseph was that day. mourner, sexton, and livery man. Had the entire
charge of the whole occasion, Only
four people attended the burial of the
King of the Universe Let this be
consolatory to those who through
small means or lack of large acqualn
tance, hive hut little demonstration
of grief at the grave of their dead,
it Is not necessary, A long line of
'littering equipages,    two rows     ol
ill Ver handles, casket of costly wood,
nail bearers, scarfed and gloved, are
not necessary.
The story of the resurrection is told
at Athens amid a blaze of sliver and
gold. Kor some time before Blaster,
Alliens wears a picturesque aspect.
This is due iu great part to the number ol the shepherds who, with their
uocks, have come down from the
mountains and are camped in every
available open space, engaged in selling their lambs. There is no family

The Christian legends connected
with plants generally explain their
behavior during Pnasion week. Tbe
aspen still shivers with remnree because when Christ passed, it had bold
ly fared the heavens instead of bowing lis head iu company with the
other trees. The Savior cast one
look nn it nnd the memory of that
sorrowful glance is banded down even tn this generation.
The willow was used for the scour-
ages and ever since has drooped Its

Why Come to Canada?
A new phase ot the nation-wide
exodus trom the United States, th.
effect of which are now being felt
with daily increasing force ln Canada,
is pointedly shown up ia the current
issue ol Winnipeg Once-a-Week, under
tbe caption, "Still Trekking North-
ward-and Why." It has been shown
according to recent press diapatcbea.
that no less than 75,000 American
farmers came to Western Canada between July 1910 and July 1911, and
hundreds ol thousands before that
time, this great army of home seekers bringing with them about 11,000
per capita, "No wonder," says ttn
correspondent, "There is grave concern now felt in American commercial centres In view of this situation.
and that United States officials are
engaged ln a desperate search for arguments that might dissuade their
fellow country men from a well-
formed purpose," The correspondent asserts however, that there la a
serious flaw in this method of procedure on tbe part ol the United States
authorities, Inasmuch ns while their
attention is being concentrated so vigorously upon this great publicity campaign, designed to advertise the advan
tapes and opportunities open in the
stJaftee, another powerful array of forces le to be found engaged with equal
determination in a campaign ot a different sort—"a rather loud and blatant campaign, which has raised serious question ln the minds of many
Americana as to whether, after all,
life is not too short to be spent ln
its entirety under guard, and surrounded by din and tumult and ths
alarms of demagogues and agitators"
The correspondent then takes up
the notorious dynnmite conspiracy
recently unearthed as a result of the
McNamara trial at Los Angeles, and
which had ramitlcations ln all the
great industrial centres of the United
States. Under these conditions lt Is
easily understood why large numbers
of thoughtful Americans are carefully
considering the question whether life
and property are not Just A bit more
secure under the guarantees and eafe-
guarda of the Dominion government.
However, were theae attacks upon
the established order ol organized society merely the output of the loafer
and the street corner agitator, peace-
loving Americans would feel no special cause for alarm, the case takes
on an entirely different aspect, however, when men holding positions ol
power and leadership ln public Ufa
assume the role nf demagogues aad
conduct a systematic campaign of
social and political upheaval year
after year—and especially avsry
fourth year "It Is in view of an
approaching national election," concludes the correspondent, "tbat many
foreslghted American, today are regarding it expedient to turn their
faces northward; and from present
Indlcatlona the movement during ths
coming season appears likely to
break all recorda" As if In confirmation of these statements, J. S. Dennis, head of the Natural Resources
depsrtment ot the 0, P R. has Just
announced that from careful estimates he look, to see 200,000 Americans
settle In Western Csnada In 1913.

Cranbrook St. Needs Attention
It la up to th. Board of Work, to
make 80m. Improvement on Cran.
brook street. For the past alx years
there has been nothing done, and the
small lako, just below tbe School
House has became a nuisance, the
rocks piled up on each side of the
street are monuments to the disgraceful conditions which exist; the
bridge Is ln bad shape, and Is a menace and source of danger, to the
school children who are dally compelled to cross It. The sidewalk on
the north aide of the street are decayed, not wide enough, and a disgrace to the city. Cement sidewalks
are very nice, look well, but we want
decent walks on Cranbrook street before we are taxed for cement walks
which will not be laid ln the outlying districts for several years.
Council to be Commended
Additional Locals
Mr, E. Peterson, left on Thursday
on a business trip to the far east.
BORN.-At the Cottage hospital,
Tuesday April 2nd,to Mr. aud Mrs.
Wm. Nesblt, a daughter.
H. S. Waters, late accountant at
the Royal Bank left this week lor
Halifax, N.8.   	
Miss B. Murgatroyd, stenographer
at tbe Royal Bank has been confined
to her home this week on account of
H. A. Hasewood, left for Vancou-
er, very suddenly on Tuesday; there
are a number of people around town
who will regret his departure.
The city council are worthy of com
mendatlon for the very creditable
manner In which they are looking alter the city's interests, A case well
worth mentioning where a branch
body of the city, though authorised
to spend money in certain directions
and charge the same to the rate-payers, hnve no authority to buy real
estate outside the city limits and
then send In the bill to the council
for payment without a word of explanation as to where the Bald real
estate was, or for what use lt was
The matter was brought to the attention of the council by an account
presented to the finance committee
for payment amounting to $1,975.1)0
and Included an Item for *,*81.00 tor
real estate. This roal estate was
found to be about half a mile outside of the city limits, in block 45.
If land la desired, nnd really needed
for School purposes, lt could be obtained within the city limits, and in
all probability more serviceable.
The school board nre already draw
Ing on the school district to the extent of 5 mills and there Ib a certain
surplus allowed which ls put under
the heading of extraordinary expenses, and this payment ls supposed to
come under this head. As this money
ls to be paid by the city, it Is absolutely essential for the school board
to first consult with tbe council as
to the merits of such an expenditure,
and then ascertain If the city Is able
to pay the same without encroaching
on other Improvements now ln prog-
cesB in the city.
We have been Informed by one of
the trustees, that the provincial government bad granted to the school
board sufficient money to build the
proposed school to be ejected on the
land In question, 1. this ls true, and
wltb the manual teaining expenditure
the board will have In the neighborhood ol J17.5O0 for manual school repairing and finishing the present
school house, and the erection of tbe
proposed new school building outside
tbe municipality. It might be a
benefit to the ratepayers of the Oranbrook school dlstzlct, and the citizens of Cranbrook city to ascertain
Just what the school board want, and
what they propose doing.

Allen Players at Cranbrook
The Auditorium has been the home
of the famous "Allen Plnycrs" and
their musical adherents, "The Royal
Hui.gnrlan Quartette.
Mr. Allen ls to be congratulated
on retaining Mlnfi Verna Felton as
the leading lady of his company. Mibs
Felton, is a great favorite with Crnnhrook tlieatre-goerH and the Allen
Player are sure of crowded bouse
when they sojourn at Cranbrook.
The personal ol the company consists of artists, with reputation second to no performers In the Alberta
circuit. Mr. Kennedy as tending man
can not be Improved on, and we have
no hesitation In Haying thnt the Allen Players, Is the best stock com-
that hns ever played at Cranbrook.
Miss Felton In the "Dlvorcnna"
was a marvel, nnd showed great his-
tronir talent In the wny she personated "Cyprienne". Mme Do Prunel
les, MrB P. R. Allen ns Mllle Dc Vnl
fontnine proved n favorite with the

place ln the admiration of the people
by her excellent way of handling her
various roleH during the week. MIhs
Gladys Hudnrs can always count on
receiving a good reception when she
nppenrs before a Crnnbeook audience,
she delighted the nudlence with her
songs, .esneclnlly "Where the River
Shnnnon Flows."
