u successful conclusion. We would
suggest thnt a meeting of citizens be
called, committees appointed, and
the day celebrated as usual.

Four Great April Wars
It is time for Huerta to Btop and
think of wbat he iB g oing up a-
gainat when he tritB tbe April fool
game .on Uncle Sam, as this is the
time of year wh:-n the old gentleman
gets figbtiag mad.
It was on April 17th, 1775, when
the American revolution was started
and at that time Uncle Ham was a
very young mnn.
Seventy-one years passed. It was
April 2fi, 1846, when Clmeral Arista's
.Mexicans crossed the Rio Grande,
and attacked Capt. Thornton's Utile band nf drairoonfl— and the Mexican war was on.
At daybreak, April n, 1861, the
lirst shell llred by (renetal Beaura-
gard'fl battery whistled across Chnr-
lostowa harbor and burst over Fort
Bump ter. The great war of the re-
belllon is dated from tbat hour.
A third nf a century of peace followed that terrible contiict. Then,
lust Hi years ago, April 20, 1898,
President McKinlay h -ut to Spaiu
the ultimatum to withdraw all
troops from Cuba, whose people the
Congress of the United States had
voted "nre and ought to be independent." One day later war began between tbo United States and Spain.
Four great April conflicts; each
brought new power, new honors, new
triumph to the Stars and Stripes.
This is, April, 1914. Why does not
Heurta take warning?
Young People's Pouitry
The Rev. W. K. Dunham addressed

Manual Training school on Wednesday afternoon. Mr. A. H. Webb in
introducing thc speaker, gave a few
pointers on the handling of the

them not to help weak chicks out of

be always weak and liable to bring
disease into the (lock. He also outlined a good ration for the baby
chicks, consisting of one part chopped oaloa tops, two parts bread
crumb's and one part boiled egg.
They were shown how to feed ao as
tu make the little fellows scratch
and grow strong instead of loaf and
grow fat. Tbe A Coop was illustrated. The speoker urged the boys to
gut a small Incubator next year and

In the House of Commons at Ottawa, on Tuesday, Mr. W. F. Cock-
abutt, of BrantforU, who is anxious
about the safety of HveB and property of Canadians in Mexico, asked
the government the following question: "In the advent of war between
the United States and Mexico will
the government take any precautions to insure the safety of Canadians in Mexico, if so, what action
will be taken*1"
The reply was that the Guvern-
wast was in communication with the
Imperial authorities on the subject.
Mr. Borden might have said, with
all candour, that the Dominion of
Canada was depending upon the Brit

Cranbrook's Water
The interest taken by the people
regarding the future of the City's
Water System is somewhat hampered as to tbe relative values of a
wood pipe or steel service by the experience of those who hnve had to
do with a system tbat, like Topay,
"juat growed"
It would not  havo mattered  what
material*, this     waa     made     from,
whether wood, Iron or steel, ns either   would   be  equally   unsatisfactory
when put together so badly, wltb so
many dead ends and practically only
two or tbree of tbe lines joined  up
in what iH termed a circulating system.    Any engineer  who is qualified
to express an    opinion    would   bear
this out, and none, I nm sure, quick
er tban   your  own  bnrdwoi*Uug  Mr.
J. c. Glenday,   This is the whole
crux of thU question.    Any material
put    together    with    such    complete
lack of plan or system as tbe City's
present    service   would    have   given
just as good a service as is now to
be had, AND NO   BBJTTBR,    be   it
wood, Bteel or Iron.
As regards wood pipe, if tbis can
be proved satisfactory the cost of
replacing the system would be little
more than half what n steel service
would cost, a big item in these hard
times. Just stop and think, thnt
whore we'd spend $100,000.00 for a
ateel line the wood service would
cost leBS thnn $60,000,00, and $40.-
000.00 is an Item worth keeping in
the citizens' pockets if possible, Ar.*
you going to pny fl.OO for an article you can purchase satisfactorily
for 65 or fiO canto?
Immediately here the layman says
"Mow can we get  B service toi  foftv
to forty-five per cent cheaper than
n steel one and not repeat th" last
failure?    H"W are we to know when
to be used, haB bis pipe to be absolutely free from knots, sap wood,
nnd pitch-seams, has the tenons of
the pipe made true to tbe couplings
such as the modern up-to-date manu-
facterers turn out, and being up-to-
date himself he has all the information at his linger tips as to the elas
sitication of a good sound wood pipe
and any new things that go to make
the wood better, such as creosote on
the collars where the tar is light,
or galvanized steel bands to reiiu-
force the coupling ends. These and
anything else he includes in his spec
itications. He does exactly the same
should a steel line be proposed—
specifies thickness of shell and
weight per foot tor the pipe. And
after that be is busy when the contract is let keeping an eye on everything and seeing that the specifications are lived up to. Hid the wood
pipe company ever have the number
of cars of pipe condemned that tbe
Pittsburg Steel people did when
their pipe was not up to specification in Vancouver? We doubt it. AU
quarte rs nf infprmation give us to
understand that all pipes, be they
wood, steel or iron, are not perfect
and to get tti: perfect we have to
depend on the stringency of the spec
ifications and integrity of the engineer in charge.
The ,qliestion that has been
brought up as to the life of wood
aizainst Bteel is not a question at
all, a high school boy could tell us
that all things being equal, wood
will outlive steel, whether twenty-
flve or two hundred and fifty years
he cannot any as it entirely depends
on what conditions those are. It is
up to ua here to throw that question out, as also the one of the How
through the pipes, all authorities a-
greeing that the flow is greater in
wood than iron or steel, but to be
absolutely on the safe side tbey use
tbe figures Ol Kutter'H formula for
aspbalt'd iron pipes. Throwing these
two unnecessary questions aside we
again get hark to the same question
aa before—How can we save 40 or
45 per cent? We might answer this
question with others like tbis—How
did Kernie, Salmon Arm, Port Albernl!, or Kelowna and many other
towns about our own Blze and standard do so? and we then tind they
did it by using wood; some qt thece
towns did it by knowing what they
wanted and tbeu got it. They hnve
up-to-date fire outfits too in keeping
with Jheir water service, Buch aa
Mi-tor Trucks tbat answer a night
call in so mnny seconds, nnd still
tbey have not aivjnt all ot the $1,00.
This idea rathee nppenls to us in n
town almost built to feed a conflagration!   "A   water   Service   and   a
Fire   Department   fully equipped for
less than the cost of a steel service'
otber towns have these things and
get, them easier by saving that poor
old 40 per cent.
Self-Denial Week
we bave got it'" And again the j nnd
man thinking steel says "Steel is
expenaive so it ought tn be good",
and if careful enquiry was made
you'd very often find that is the note
reason yon are getting steel, i.e.,
becnuse it Is expensive. Then look a
WN bit deeper, and you'l find the
outside firm of Kn,'ineers called in
simply to keep the price up because
tb'jr are being pad nn tbe percentage basis. The more it costs the
more goes Into their pocket. It's

Forest Reserves
A forest reserve is not an area of
forest land where no trees whatever
are allowed to be cut. The object
in setting aside the land for the reserve is not to prohibit cutting altogether, but rather to regulate the
cutting and generally to treat the
forest so that a continuous crop of
timber may be taken ofl the area, instead of having it cut over once or\
perhaps twice and then left wastfe,
Experience in other lands has demonstrated that such a continuous
crop of forest trees can bl* grown,
and the setting aside of forest reserves iB oue of the first steps taken
in the introduction of such a policy
in this country. Crop after crop
can be taken oil the same area—of
course at widely separated intervals
for half a century is a short period
to allow for a crop of timber to
The primary object of a forest reserve is thus to provide fnr a perpetual supply of timber. Another
important object of the reserves is
to protect the water supply, both
the domestic supply for towns and
cities and also the supply to be used
:or the generation of power. The effect of forests at the headwaters of
streams is to regulate tbe tlow so
as to make it constant throughout
the year—not a torrent in Bprlng uud
a nearly dried -up Stream-bed m tbe
heat of summer. To be valuable as
a source of power a stream must
furnish a constant and regular supply of water. Very low water in a
stream from which a town or city
derives its water supply bas often
meant a gfleat deal ol sickness, (perhaps in the form ol nn epidemic),
for the people ol that place. Where
the forest is, tbe snow melts more
gradually in spring and the rains ol
spring and summer soak into the
ground, which acts like a sponge,
and flow oil more gradually than
where tbe forest is removed.
In hilly and mountainous regions
the cutting ofl of the forests has ol
ten led to the washing away of the
soil. This has made it impossible
for the forests to grow again, and
moreover has led to the silting up
ol the rivers in the valleys, which
made necessary the expenditure of
large sums in dredging them out a-
galn. Good examples of this maybe seen in the neighborhood of tbe
Appalachian Mountains in the Vn-
ited States.
Some reserves are important as
well in furnishing recreation lor the
people, but tbe two essential Object!
of tbe reserves, are those of provll
ing for n perpetual crop of timb-r
nnd of protecting the water supply
for power and domestic use.

The third budget ol the Borden
Oovernment is in every respect and
in tbe fullest seii3e a people's budget
The story of financial stability of
trade expansion, and of tbe splendid
manner in which tho Dominion ol
Canada pnssed through a world-wide
financial stringency was gratifying
to tbe people of Cnnada and a lasting credit to the Borden Government
1 hrough every phase of the year's
work there was appnreut the influence of a wise, capable and courageous directing lorce. Readers of the
budget muat malize that Canada
owes much to the fact that her affairs during so trying a year and iu
so critical a period were in tbe
hands of a Government and of a Fin
ance MmiFter possessed of a strong
and unshakeable faltb in Canada
and equipped witb the knowledge
of world conditions by which alone
tho Dominion could be safely guided
through a period of stress and trial.
It is to tbe credit of Cannda that
the Canadian people look for a just
indication of the standing of the
Dominion, nnd the credit of Canada
maintains today the highest place In
the markets of the world.

The coming year, an stated by lion
W. T. White, Will be a year for pru
dence and caution,  hut   a time uluo
for courage and confidence. Thc
worst of the financial stringency is!
over and bad times in the nature of
things produce good times, Mr.
White's statement in regard to the
financial outlook was full of reassurance for Canada. He declared his
Ilrm faith in the ability of Canada
to progress. The strength of Canada
ns he stated, lies in ber vast natural
resources, and that atrengtb ia the
foundation of the Dominion's prosperity.
The tariil changes announced by
the Minister of Finance are in the
nature of a readjustment to meet
new industrial conditions, TH*y are
of very great importance. Perhaps
of greatest importance was the Btate
ment with which the Minister Intro
duccd hia tariff changes.
"I desire," he said, "to aflirn the
adherence of the Oovernment to a
fiacal policy of reasonable protection
to Canadian industries, including, of
courBe, tbe great basic industry of
agriculture. The policy is the historic National Policy of Sir John
Macdonald, inaugurated by him and
continued by, his successors down to
the present time. We believe it ta
tbe best, indeed the only, and in a
sense tbe inevitable policy for Canada, situated as It is geographically
world to-day. Under that policy
Canada bas prospered lu the past,
and will continue to prosper in the
future. We believe It is tbe true pol
icy for Canada and for every part
of it if we are to regard as desire-
ablo stable business conditions and a
diversified national life throughout
the Dominion."
The tariff changes carry wtth them
decided benefits for tbe Canadian far
mer, The farmer keepB nil be had
before am! he gets more. In tho
maintenance of the wheat and Hour
duties the Govornmont protects the
Canadian wheat grower by preserving hla home market. This will result in the extension of tbe milling
Industry in the West and in an In-
croaflJd output of mlllfoed, which
will he an Important factor in tbe
development of the live-stock Industry In Canada. There Is tbe further
undertaking by tbe Oovernment tbnt.

1 the benefit of thu farmer under   this   bend   in   seveuteeu   yenrs,
Tbe most the Lnurier Oovernment
ever did to meet tbe demand follower duties on farm implements
was to lower tbe duty by two and a
half per cent. The Borden Oovernment hns just doubled this cut and
has brought the Implement duty two
and a half per cent, lower than tbe
figure lixed in the reciprocity agreement,
This change in tbe duty means
much to the farmers of Canada, aud
will not materially affect the interests of tbe manufactures, whose position was made the subject of careful and exhaustive study by tbe Government before action was taken.
Tbe object of the llorden Government is to act impartially toward
all classes in Cannda, and the present budget demonstrates this attitude, no one industrial claBB having
b'en given more favorable treatment
than has beeu accorded to another.
A year ago the present Government
took the duty off ditching machines
and placed these machines on the
free list. This year the parts of these
machines have nlso been placed on
the free list and will hereafter enter
Canada without duty.
Tbe provision for the drawback of
duty in the cbbo of wire imported
for use in farm fencing is another ex
umple of the rare wtth which tbe
Government bas protected tbe interests of the farmer. ThiB drawback
provision is mude iu the readjustment of steel mid iron duties, a readjustment wblcb promises to bo an
Important factor in placing tbe steel
industry of Canada upon a bettor
footing. There is to be more manufacturing of Iron and steel in Canada, more money spent in tbe employment of Canadian labor, and
this Is accomplished without the necessity of increased prices to tbe con
su mer.

Conference on City
During the last live years National
Conferences on City Planning have
been held annually In various cities
of ttie United states, anil have aroused such widespread interest that
many American cumtnunities are now
nlixioim to have the Conference held
in their city and are willing to contribute the funds-.for that purpose.
The city of Toronto, therefore, is
to be congratulated on being the
first place on this side of the International boundary to entertain the
Conference, which this year will become international in scope and char
act'jr. Tbo financial difficulties have
been overcome by a gonerous grant
from the Dominion Government,
which has appointed the Commission
of Conservation to act as hosts. The
Ontario government and the city of
Toronto are also contributing. Tho
question of city planning is thus recognized to be of national, provincial and municipal concern, and
Field-Marshall H. R. H. the Duke of
Connaught, tho Governor-General,
has graciously consented to open the
Conference and give an address.
Tho substantial assistance given
by tbe Dominion government is evidence that the town-dweller, equally
with the agriculturalist, is receiving
attention, and that not only the Fed
oral capital, but all our Canadian
cities are receiving from the Federal
authorities such advice and assistance as the Congress will afford
them. Invitations have bcen sent to
all the cities and townB in the Dominion, requesting them to send delegations to the Conference and it is
liop'id that many will take advantage of the opportunity. Money
could be spent to no greater advantage than giving some of our city
councillors the opportunity to come
into touch with experts in civic prob
lems from all over the continent.
The aldermen will carry home ideas
that, put into practice, will save
their towns-peoplo millions of dollars, besides acquiring a new Bcnec
of the responsibilities of their office
and higher ideals of civic administration.
The BCDpe of tbe Conference may
be gauged by a glance at some of
the topics which will form the main
themes of discusBion. Among these
may be cited. The relative importance of City Planning as compared1
with all other Functions of City
Government, by Andrew Wright
Crawford, editor of the city-planning
section of the "Public Ledger;" {Provision for Future Rnpid Transit, by
J. V. Davies, consulting engineer

Young Men's Club
A number of new members bave
signed up during the past week.
With the expiration of memberships
very little difllculty has been experienced in having members renew their
A strenuous effort to have all the
young men of the town particularly,
Lo join the Club is now being made.
For the benelit of those who are not
conversant with membership conditions we give the following outline
of the Cluh and its Held of work:
Is Th'e Young Men's Olub is not
a private enterprise foisted upon tho
community and looking for the sympathetic and sentimental support of
the community. The Club is the answer, to a demand for an institution
of this type for the benefit of young
men, It is a business proposition.
It has a commodity to sell and offers a bona-ttde return for money invested. There is no such thing as
paying something for nothing unless
a member declines ta ta*;c h.B privileges.
2. Who can be a member? Anyone
who behaves himself.
3. What is the membership fee?
Ten dollars per annum, in advance.
There are no other fees or expenses
lb connection with the Club. The
Olub is not a place to spend money
but a home for recreation where
money can be Bav ed.
4. What arc the privileges? Gymnasium work and games, boxing,
wrestling, etc., under a competent
Physical Instructor. Swimming Pool
privileges. The pool iR one of the
hest in the entire west and in larger
than the pool of many of the large
cities of the west, Thc temperature
ol tbe water is kept at from 70 to
7f> degrees fahrenheit. And maintained at tbat temperature throughout
the year.
The pool is kept in a sanitary con
dltlon, the water being emptied every Saturday night by regulation,
and the walls of the pool are carefully scoured. There are excellent
shower baths in connection with an
abundant supply of hot water. There
is also a tine rending room with a
good working reference library In
Throughout thc pnst yenr the Olub
has quite lived up to its ideal; a
comfortable home for men with a
wholesome atmosphere.
Tbe Girls' (Mass gave an excellent,
exhibition of their physical prowess
in the Gymnasium on Wednesday evening. The program was not long,
nor yet was the work done of a difficult natural But wbat was done
was well done, and for enthusiasm
this group of young ladies is bard
to beat. The games were keenly
competed and a aplcndid spirit of
the Olub life enjoyed by tbe ladles
was manifest. After the program re
fresbments were served. A large
number of the friends of thc Olub
were in attendance and ull declared
the event a decided success.
There is talk now of n joint exhibition by thc Ladles' and Men's
classes to be given in the near future as a wind up of the season.
Club members and their friends
nre urged not to forget to boost for
tbe big entertainment to be given in
tho Club on Monday, May 14, by
Thomas Elmore Lucy, of St. Louis,
Mo. Mr. Lucy is a clever cartoonist
nnd crayon artist and uses this talent proliflcly during his program to
illustrate both song and  storf.
Mr. Lucy is an impersonator as
well as an actor, reader, singer, and
crayon artist, He hns travelled
widely, and embodies the beBt things
he has seen and beard in many lnnds
in his program, personating in rapid
