City Election, Thursday 16th
Around the World
Tho Canadian Pacific*. Rail way hna|
decided upon a new departure in coir
nection with the flrst saillnga of the
"Empresses" which nre now completed, and will he ready for BO" vice
early next summer. The 0-P'R.
Kill divert from the ordinary course
ol sending the vrssels around Cape
Horn to make a start in thc Pacific
service from Vancouver and instead,
have arranged attracitive Around
the World trips Tor their first voyage
A start will he made from Bouth-
amton, England, and the "Empress
of Russia" will be the first ves.el to
sail   on   April   1st,  while the "Em-
"- press of Asia" which was launched
at Govan recently, will leave the
English port 0n May 27th. Both
Steamships will cnii at G ihr alter,
Monte Carlo or Villefranche, Port
Maid, Suez, Col umbo, Penang. Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Naga-
i Baki, Kobe, Yokohama and arrive at
Vancouver about two months later.
Arrangements have been made for
the Canadian pnsaen^e s to leave
from Canadian and American port-;
iu time to cut.,., the Empresses,"
and the fare for the round trip exclusive of the cost of hotel expenses
ln England, and Sleeping Car Perth
and meals on the Canadian Pacific
Hallway will be $680.10. An arrange
ment has bean made for the inclu-
ion of meals and sleeping berth
across the Canadian Continent on
payment of nn extra $29.20. These
two vessels are sister shirs and son
feet long, GO feet beam, with gro.^s
tonnage of 16,850, and a spee.1 of 20
knots, and are- the first merchant
vessels with cruslor sterns, n feature which is especially adapt-d foe
speed and Increns?.. the stability, besides securing more room on the various dec's. When Ocean Liners were
built so thnt they should float with
two of their compartments filled
with water it was considered a great
thing, but the new "Empresses" can
have four compartments filled and
still float. The vessels const tute
the very latsst improvements in
Ocean Liners, and the initial trips
of the "Empresses" offer a unique
opportunity to make nn "Around
the World" tour covering thc whole
distance under the Cnnndinn Flag.
Various side tiii-s will be arranged
for from ports of call between South
ampton and Hong Kong.

The ball was under the auspices of

colors of the brotherhood; also an e-
lectric Byren which was sounded, and
tbe lights turned on at exactly 12K.

To the Electors ol the City ol Cranbrook.
Ladles and Gentlemen:
In view ol the near expiration ot
the civic year and the consequent necessity (or choosing a Mayor and
Council to admin;.s:er ci;ic. business
lor tho ensuing twelve months; wo,
the undersigned dcBlre to submit our
eelveB as candidates for election to
lhe council lor 1913.
We wish to state cloarly at the out
set that In appealing lor youi «up-
port tor our programme, it Is the
programme rather than the person
upon which we bt s* that appeal. 11
ns we hope, you eltct vs us instruments to translate that programme
into practical e e:t, we will use our
best endeavor*! to act taitbtully under your mandate and in thc best interests ol tbls city ol Cranbrook
which under efficient administration
we are convinced, has no mean future
belore it.
II that future Is ever to be achl*
ved, lt will be by lorce ot the united
goodwill ol all sectlonB ot the community, and although we speak Irom
an opposition plattorm, we are not
animated by any personal 'calouslou
or fapiitleul prejudices.
We are inclined to Bhare the popular opinion that Inction lights in
municipal ntTuirs nre detrimental to
a city's best int-rcsts as they tend to
in tability and weaken public confidence, and the lact that we aiand In
opposition to the retiring Council a-
rlses Irom no desire to revive dead
Issues or stir up partisan lecling.
In proot ot our sincerity in making
the foregoing statement we mny
state that dining lust week, we place
hefore the present council eleven
names from which we invited them to
choose three mea to asBist them on
tho council (or the ensuing year. This
arrangement would have still guaran
tcod to the present Mayor und his
colleagues the balance, ol power, and
would have eliminated the porMl j,'ity
ol friction that is Inseparable trom a
campaign ol this kind.
This compromise was flatly rclused
by Mnyor Bnwnesi nnd his collogues
and  we  were  consequently  compelled
to come out and state an alternative
policy and suggest an alternative
Council to carry that policy through,
Wc tberetore appeal (or your support, on the lollowlng grounds:
FIRST—In thej Interest* ol Economy.
It is a fact that the electors ot
this city are paying ln municipal tal
ntion a higher rate than any other
city, large or amall, ta British Columbia. Wby ls thll? Is lile so attractive here aa compared wltb other
points in the province that lt Is
worth payiug a top prlca for? Olad
as we are to be citizens of tbe "Btar
City of the Kootenays" we object to
paying so high * price lor the privilege of living here, and we think we
voice the objections ol many electors
an well. If returned to the council,
we will institute a thorough enquiry
into the subject, and will endeavor
to do everything in our power to lessen tho burden ot local taxation consistent wltb true progress and eftlc-
ency in Municipal Department*.
We think that the utmost publicity
should be given to all proceedings ol
the council, and would afford every
facility to electors to attend meet-
lni s, ask i|iicBt,ia»1-. »nd in any aud
every way see that they are poated
in the affairs' which vitally concern
As ive have already stated, w* believe that it Is by the united goodwill and interest ol all section* of
the community that Cranbrook will
realize its lull possibilities, and for
this reason we would do everything
possible to stimulate individual Inter
est In local affairs.
Third—We wish to see established a
fair and equitable system of assessment ot the values (rom which municipal revenue is raised, and lor the
realization ol this purpose, suggest
the appointment ol a practical builder, thoroughly poated in the vnlue ot
i improvements who should be given a
free nnd Independent scope. Thla
would tnke this Item of work out ol
the hands of ths City clerk, and a-
l.ovc the suspicion ot discrimination.
Fourth—The amendment ol the *ew
erase by-law is advocated by us ln
the Interests ol the leas favorably
pluccd citizens ol this city, who under the present arrangement, are not
only compelled to connect their
houses with the sewerage system, but
are compelled to pay high prlee*
for the work. The existing by-law
provides that any plumber coming
into town must guarantee hi* competency nnd ability by a 1500.00
bond before he tern enter into business.
We have no desire to All Cranhrook wltb cheap or Incompetent
labor In any craft, but we (all to
see In what wny the bond guarantee*
competency. What we do *ea however Is that the arrangement eliminates   competition,  and places house-

Let us prolit by the experience of
other municipalities everywhere who
hav* found whnt a costly business

Filth—Following as a necessary cor
rollary ol item four of our program,
We advocate municipal ownership ol
public utilities together with an enquiry Into the rensoiiB why the already municipally owned waterworks

the once sneered at doctrine of municipal ownership ls now helng adopted
and under clean and efficient administration is proving the only sane
and sensible way of carrying out tbe
people's trust, as against private
greed und corruption.
Finally—We sincerely desire the sup
presslon ot vice ln all Its forms, tbe
enforcement ol the law without fear
or lavor granting equal rights to all
aad special privilege to none.
We deBlre to see this city go ahead
and we are convinced thut it can only   gain   true prcaperity along clean  working   on   I'erry Creek during the

mount of development work during

The shipping mines of the district

over z.i.iiiin tins shipped. The St.

list, with the Society Girt and Aurora.
A number ot prospects on Tracy
Creek and Wolt Creek have been developed to u point, that when the
Kootenay Central rnilwny is constructed to Wasa, will become shipping mines. Ln Skonkum Creek a
number of good prospects are being
developed rapidly In anticipation ol
the coming of the railway.
Wild Horse Creek bus a number of
good mines. The Ko tenay King being under bond to an American syndicate for a large num. Two claims
on Browery Creek, a trlbtltnry ol
Wild Horse Creek have reached an

Dr. Fernow, whb present at the
Canadian Forestry Association Convention In Vancouver lust summer
und gave un nddrcss which will remain lor u long time lu the memories ol those who heard it,
Dr. Fernow's seven tenetM with regard to toreatry are:
1. Forests grow to be used.
2. Not all torest growth is deslr
able and to he maintained, I.e.
where the torest grows on lnnds

3. In the virgin I,ireat there Is
practicully no growth, lor timber

Nature will produce forests If man

The slide came down so quickly
thatevery man in the building wa*
caught, no warning sound having
proceeded its coming. The electric

of Canada have shown their fidelity
to King and Empire and their love
of this country. Canada bas been
able to show to the world that out
of a position of Colonial dependence
she has risen to that of stately nationhood. The brilliant Premier of
Canada, Hon. H. L. Borden, by bis

Canada is a part of the whole Empire does not detract from her eminence amid the nations of tha earth
nor does it in nny waycurtnll her in
dlvlduality. She stands today by
merit not a degree below any ot the
firBt class nations of the earth, and
there is no Canadian today whose
heart will not throb with quickened
pride to avouch, in any company,
the land of his nativity.
This for Canada; and in thc con-

country, are we not justified in Haying that our own province of British

The happiest Jim! most proOtable

Thc excessive drinker needs medical help as badly un does the typhoid fev.M" patient. Ah a well
known husinc-s man advises:
"To nny ono who wants to 'cut
out' drink I would sny—Don't he
foolish and try und light it out with
all the tortures of Hell racking your
body and soul for Wt-Jftka while making the tight. Take the Neal Treatment   and   get   the alcoholic poison
out of your system in thre« days.
Vou will then be in a position to
meet Mr. John Barleycorn anywhere
on equal footing."
Tbis game business man had been
a periodical drinker for over 20
"1 managed to j;et good and drunk
from two to four times a year," he
said. "Now the thought of UqoUT Ut
The .Nfjil Treaetnent insures _. bap-

New Year to the excessive drinker,
and it only takes three days to
bring aoout this resnlt—three day*—
not the month or more which othc-r
treatmente require with no such
cheerful results.
The Neal Treatment consists ot
tin' administration by a trained
nurse, who in in ennstant attendance
of a perfectly harmless vegetable
remedy taken Internally, with positively nn hypodermic injections.
The Neal Treatment neutralises
end eliminates nil the stored up alcoholic poisoning in the system.
When this is done, the drinker la in
the same physical condition thnt be
was in hefore he e'-er had a drink,
so far hh li(|uorB are concerned, for
it is the stored up alcoholic poison
in the system that causes this appetite, and when once tbe alcoholic
poisoning is eliminated, the appetite
te nisi) eliminated.
Satisfaction is guaranteed or money is refunded. Tbe Neal Cure wae
