Creston Fair
The Creston Agricultural Pall Pair
is now a matter of history. Excellent weather, splendid exhibits and
a large attendance greeted tbe opening day.
The Pair was formerly opened b
J. H. Schofleld, M.P.P., who thanked
the president and those present for
the honor conferred upon him. He
referred to previous fairs held at
Creston and congratulated tbe people
of CreBton on their enterprise. He
conrluded bis remarks by congratulating tbe ladies of tbe district on
the beautiful display tbey had made.
In the fruit section, apples of all
varieties and pears predominated. 0,
B. Appleton of Proctor, Judged this
exhibit and said that in the , late
exhibit of wagoners he had never ln
all his experience seen such close
Wm. Hamilton of Cranbrook, judged the vegetable exhibit, wblcb be
aald waB a truly remarkable collection.
Similar expressions were expressed
by Mrs. T. B. Gill ol Crnnbrook, who
waa judge ol tbe home-cooking and
preserving department.

Among the notable winners was C,

Entombed Miners
Two hundred nnd seventy-five miners are believed to ho dead tonight,
Thursday, beneath torn, of fallen
earth, timber, coul and rocks in the
cuts and rooms of Stag Canon Mine
No. 1 on the Stag Canon Fuel com-
uany at Dawson, N.M.
Hundreds of miners, working in
shifts of 15 each, are slowly forcing
their way through the rooms and entries, fighting againBt dangers of gas
and fire which today started in an
adjoining mine and which tonight
threatens to reach the space in
which the entonri>td men were trapped. Only 23 men have been taken
from the mine alive.
Tonight the first miner to be reach
ed alive within 12 houra was
taken from the main entry. He was
found unconscious near a mule which
earlier tn the evening had been found
alive. The man was two miles within the mine. Thirty-eight dead and
23 rescued make up the total of the
day's work of recovery.
Thoso who saw the explosion say
it was like a volcano, first came the
roar, then the noise of thc great explosion when instantly from tbe two
layernl entries issued the flashes of
ilame, followed by dense clouds of
heavy black smoke.
Demand for New Policy
Dismay is a mild word to use in
describing tho efteot upon the Liberal
party of their defeat in the Chateauguay election, From one end of the
country to the othor the Liberal
press has indulged 111 hitter epithets
nga.tt.8t the 0on_.orvttt.v_ party bUow*
ing plainly that they have taken
their heating budly. The leaders of
the pnrty have also shown thnt the
defeat wuh nut expected. Time and
again during the last session Liberal
members in the House of Commons
demanded an election boa_t)ng that
the Province of Quebec would teach
the Government that Quebec was Htiil
solid for Laurier. The first by-election has taken place in a constituency two-thirds of French Canadian
population and the answer to the
Liberal boastings has come clear nnd
definato that the Borden policy of
good government in the interests of
the people of all sections of the Dominion han commended itself to Quebec. The old sentimental cry of attachment to Lnurier failed to sweep
the French Canadians and honest
government  won the victory.
The Conservative victory has shown
that the Liberal party must recast its
policies. Reciprocity and n Canadian
navy have not commended themselves
to the electorate. Vapourlngs on the
part of sentimentalists that the people should "put their money on the
Old Cock" hnve lost their power .The
scales have fallen from the eyeB of
those who formerly supported tho
Laurier methods of obtaining votes
and their is now a clear line ol differ
ence between the two parties. Conservatism is the creed of those, who
wish attachment to the Mother country nnd at the same time demand national develoument along safe and
sure lines. Liberalism on the other
hand is based on n minimum of attachment to the Mother Country and
a return to power by violent agitation.
It is evident that the electors have
become tired of such Liberal tactics.
They want, if the Liberal party is
ever again to secure their support, a
substantial programme founded upon
progressive lines. As the Liberal
party is now in desperate straits
such a programme does not Beem to
be ou the horizen and agitation and
race appeals are their trump cards.
How far the present lender of the
Opposition is responsible for such a
condition, is not known. During the
past fifteen years he haB always
shown himself an autocratic leader in
dealing with the members of his own
party, He has loBt much power consequent upon his defeat on September 21. 1911, and it Is now evident
that his party ls tossed about by
conflicting opinions nnd eddying currents of thought. The saner members of the party nre calling for new
policies and new leadership.    It will
come an no surprise that u party convention may be called and a new programme and h new leader .h.,ne
Tie difllculty v. 11] he to chi ce both
the policy and the leader. Neither
seems to be ready at hand. Those
ex-Ministers who hold Heats ii) the
House did not show last session that
they possessed the qualifications nec-

The fact thut Mr. Fielding has taken
a job as editor of a Montreal Liberal
paper shows that he has not imith
hope of being offered at an early opportunity a seat in the House tit
.Such is the stnte of aflairB In tho
Liberal party. It baa become much
more evident since the Chateauguay
defeat. It will boconie more pro
nounced as succeeding defeats ensue,
There ia hut one moral to the whole
tale. A party cannot succeed unless
it Is founded upon n belief in the

Sir Thos. Shaughnessy
says Canada has
greatest crop
in history
CHICAGO, 111., Oct. 18.--Canndlan
prosperity will reach its high water
mark in the present year, according
to Sir Thomas Shaughnessy, president of the Canadian Pacific railroad. He arrived in Chicago en
route from Montrenl to Winnipeg.
"Canada will have the greatest
crop in its history this year," he
ho id. "Reports from the Northwest
show that we wlll need every car we
possess to move the great crop,which
will be garnered. Of course, this
means greater prosperity."
..."Does a cattle famine appear imminent in Cannda as it does in tbe
United States?" he was asked.
"Well, at present, we are seudlug
cattle to tho United States," he replied.
"That does not look as though we
would not have enough cattle. I believe, however, that most of the cattle exported are breeding cattle.
"Doth Canada and the United
States have paid too little attention
to the necessity of raising cattle and
both wlll suffer frora it soon dnless
something is done."

Mexican Crisis Near
At Washington, D.C., on Thursday,
an atmosphere of gravity and Bomber silence enveloped the Mexican
situation, not only with regard to
the dissatisfaction of tbe United
Stntes nt Oreat Britain's attitude,
but as to tbe critical state of affairs
in Mexico city nn the election of October 26th draws near.
Tho conclusion drawn generally was
that u crisis was approaching slowly
that the arrival of General Felix
Diaz appeared to complicate internal
affairs In Mexico and that stern measures by the Washington government
would not be surprising.
General Diaz was escorted to the
American consulate by President Wilson's personal representative Johu
Lind, the American Consul, and two
American residents. Troops surround the consulate block. Diaz wlll
be arrested if he leaves the Consulate

he could not recall the time'whon interest in Canadian affairs was as

said; "I was greatly pleased to see
the Increasing attention which British Columbia received in Kustern
Canada and Kngland. l.nsterncrs
nre beginning to havo n proper appreciation of the tremendous wealtn
nnd almost Illimitable resources of
the fnr western provinces. It is with

The Boxing Contest at thc Auditorium un Monday night was good
from n fan's point of view, notwithstanding that The Wilson threw a
chill over the entertainment. It also demonstrated tbat promotor R,
C. Nafe is a true sport, for when
Tug Wilson declined to tight, "Bob"
said: "Throw open the doors, let

From the above communications it
will be seen that Wilson knew just
what he was to receive, the fact of
nis coming to Cranbrook bears out
this statement. He must have got n
lot of dope on "Lucca" while coming
through the Pass, for he bad no in
tentlon of lighting Lucca on his arrival here. Lucca went to Wilson
and said: "Don't spoil the game, 1
will give yoa $50 from my share Just
to keep from disappointing the people." Two other parties also said
that they would put another $r»0 to
aee the contest go on; but Mr, Wilson
clothed in a big overcoat, gloves,etc,
claimed that he waa not in condition
went to his room, nnd later in the
evening took the flyer for the Windy
Boh Nate in the meantime hnd the
doots of tho Auditorium thrown open
"Everybody Free, 1 will entertain
you boys as best as I can."
Previous to the first preliminary,
Bob told all those who had bought
tickets to call at the box office and
their money would he returned to
The first preliminary to he fought
was between Young Kay and Scotty
Taylor. It waa a good fight nnd well
worth seeing. Referee Cam Llndsey
declared It a draw.
The next was a six round bout between W. Kay and Bob Watson. The
I lads  certainly   had   some  knowledge
jof the ring for the fight they put up
'was u good one.    No decision given.
I    The   next    was    nn   exhibition between Lucca and Dick Marshall.    It
was a very clever exhibition of the
manly art, nnd among other things
allowed how fighting  with  one band
free  was conducted  under the  rules.
Lucca wan very fast, and in spite of
.(<)  ths  In  wight   in   favor of   Mnr
bhall, seemed tn hit when and where
j he wanted.   It Is more t bun probable
that had thc original fight been pull

the mat in qtUch time.
Following the announcement that
Bob mode from the stage that no
