this matter, we might mention that
street lighting wns aguln brought up,
nnd, as tbe Council is determined to
work (or and protect tho liitorostH ol
the City, tbey will not pay tbo present hill rendered, which thoy rightly
consider extortionate. The matter
was reforcd to a committee wllb
power to act. The Council after dun
consideration came to thn conclusion
that If the price demanded for the
street lights wns not reduced, they
will Issue the necessary Instructions
to the Electric Light Co., to take
down the present Tungsten lights In
use and Install tho old arc lights.
The report ot the sewerage committee was received and favorably
Aldermen Campbell ami Atchison
moved that the amendment to tbo
procedure by-law No. 3, be read—Carried. Tald by-law wus then road a
lirst, second and third time.
The Police Committee presented a
system of police supervision to the
Council that will considorali y reduce
the friction that at present exists.
That a system of colored lights he
established In different, parts of the
city, controlled from the central
telephone ollice, and 11 the pollco are
wanted In any part of the city all n
person has to do Is to ring up central, give the necessary information,
then central turn on tho colored
lights, tbe pollco observing the same
phones central, receives their Instructions, and make a hurry run to the
place where they arc wanted. The
Electric Light company Imve kindly
tillered the (roe use of these lights,
and the telephone company the free
use of phones.
The Fire and Police committee
were Instructed to get prices tor tbe
installing of these lights, and have
the system In working order as soon
a* possible.
In connection with the communication Irom Inspector Alliens, his re*
ommendatlons were of tho right kind
and will appeal to everyone. It appears that In the city there are some
6 or 8 different persons and two dll
lerent companies engaged in changing
and doing repair work on     electric
Irlng. Many of these people are incompetent or careless about tholr
work, and in mnny canes there In
great danger ol tires, (rom tho In
competent work done. Mr. Aiken
writes that in places about town the
(uses have lieen replaced by wire
nails also picture cord wire, nnd
as a matter of fact there are places
without any fuses.
This Is certainly a serious state of
affaire and as a safeguard against
(Ires, it Is absolutely necessary thnt
the strict letter ol the law should be
enforced In this matter.
Mr. Aikens stated that through the
centre of the city, along nnd branch
Ing off from main streets, there were
premises that have wires so careless
ly installed, that there Is great dan
ger ol accidents and fires. The recommendation he would make to avoid
this danger in tho future is to have
all persons who alter, or make anv
repairs in whatever shape or form
have them pass a certain examine
tion written nnd verbal, as to tholr
knowledge ol wiring, according to tho
established  rules  of   Underwriters.
Mr, Aikens also stated tbut his
authority did not fully Justify him
In making certain examinations nnd
asked tho Council to give him thai
authority, that in doing so, it would
greatly increase the usefulness of his
position and be a help to him in improving the electrical work In the
city. The matter was relered to tho
Fire and Police committee.

In connection with the St. Eugene

sary In the interest taken by tho
rate payers in the doings ot tho City
Council, and the council havo provided seats aor the accommodation off rate payers who are Intorostcd In knowing what the council are doing, and
who wish to attend their meetings,
It Is all very well to have the local

Worse than the dark holoro,
Cranbrook is Proud
Cranbrook's   Amateur  Operatic  Society
Thrills Vast Audiencies With
Unsuspected Talent.
Never before has the people of
Cranbrook been able to leel so proud
of Itself and the talent it possesses
as It did on Tuesday and Wednesday
nights, when they went In crowds to
tho Auditorium Theatre and listened
to the splendid music and singing
and saw the acting ol one ot Lionel
Monckton's muclcal comedies "The
Country Girl."
Never belore has praise been so
worthily bestowed on amateurs a* lt
has been this week, the result ol so
much work and perseverance undertaken by a number of the ladles and
gentlemen ol Cranbrook. All local
talent, all wiUi the interest of the
production at heart; all wishlull ol
the Buccess of such a task voluntarily
imposod; practice became a pleaaure
and rehearsals u joy, undor the hands
of Messrs. Geo. D. Ingram, musical
director; and C. K. Loubach, stage
'imnager. Great credit Is due both
those gentlemen lor the excellent way
they bandied such a large chorus and
produced out ol raw material such
excellent results.
Many people have still in their
mind pleasant recollections ot last
yoar's production o( "The Geisha,"
nnd again has the musical talent ol
Oranbrook been clearly proved. Many
there were In the audience that made
comparisons with tbe numerous professional companies that come to
cranbrook from time to time and
remained convinced that tbe dlffer-
tncealwav» laid in (avor ol the local
Operatic and Dramatic Society.
Very difficult It Is lor any selection ol favorite* to be made or (or
any single part ol the production
that gained In lavor with the audience be specialized, we can't do it,
lor all were excellent. Th* several
players and singers taking leading
ports were so equalised and so faithful In production that one and all
nre deserving ot the greatest praise.
When the opening overture began,
the Auditorium was crowded to Its
utmost capacity. The music aa It
floated in the air gave evidence ot
the careful way tho orchestra had
been trained and to the untiring el-
forts ot Its leader, which led to such
iierfect results.
To the rising of the curtain and
tbe perfect ease with which the members taking part In the chorus came
before the public gaze, the natural-
n-ss ot the participants was ample
proof of the manager's care and forethought in details.

Winnipeg, Peb. 6.—*tn response to a
request for a statement on the tran
sportatlon situation in the West. Mr.
Qeo. Bury, vice-president of the <'.r
R. dictated the following
The handling of the grata crop of
rii l has hern widely dtiouawd and
before attempting 'o Hz the reipon*
slbllltyi I presume the public desires,
to bear from those charged with the
operation "f tbe railways. Up to
Ketif 2, L912, 1M.677 cars ol grain of
the 1911 crop imd passed Inspection.
Un Feb. U, l«.tll. 61,106 earn ot tbi
1910 crop had passed Inspection. That
is to Hay, of the 1911 crop the railways handled from harvesting time'
up to Feb. 2, 64 per cent more cars
than were hnndled up to the same
time last year. Rut thin Is not all
the case. Threshing la*t year was
trom three weeks to a month later
than usual so that thin greatly increased tonnage wan handle! in con
stderabty less time.
Never did circumstances combine Id
such a degree  as  in   1911  to compli-
cats  transportation.    Not  only    was
the crop  late as already    mentioned
but It was of Indifferent quality     in
n-arts, resulting in much more switching at the    lake    terminals    nnd    In
many cases delay In securing disposition,   Special binding also greatly reduced the capacity of the elevators.
The coal strike in the west of which
nobody  could  estimate the duration
made it   necessary    to   bring    in n
yrear'H supply of fuel from the east
to cover locomotive requirements on
the prairies.     The Canadian    Pacific
was compelled    to use    Pennsylvania
eoal  through to British Columbia. It
war nlfln neeeHnarv to give merchants
storage  accommodation   nnd   unloading facilities,    bo    that    they    could
serve with     eastern conl  a territory
usually supplied from Alberta.   To do
this nnd  protect  the    public against
a conl famine on the plains this win
ter the Canadian Pacific brought   in
■inn,ow; tons of locomotive eoal nt a
coat of $l.r,l ,i ton    more thnn    the

It is Home what goncrally supposed
thnt the main obstacle to successful
operations ot trains in the winter is
snow. Such is not the case; the main
difficulties are low temperatures and
strong winds. It. remiires a creditable amount of pluck on the part of
railway employees to turn out to
handle locomotives ,,r to switch ears
when the temperature is away below
zero; and ihe machinery also feols the
strain.    A   prolonged     spell of    cold
weather  means  that  a  locomotive  tu
efficient   condition    will   handle   from
on<> third to one hair the number   of
cars it would pull In ordinary weather.   The effect of the cold snap which
began at Christmas and   which   (or

It Is natural for r man who cannot
get his grain shipped at once or who
rinds  his cu.r  making  slow   time     tn
transit    to assume      that  there is a
shortage in ears or locomotives.   As
far as the Canadian     Pacific is concerned we have had at nil times during the     crop movement of tbe past
season  all  the  ears and  locomotives
we have    trackage to    accommodate.
Any  congestion    which has occurred
has  been   due  to  luck    of    terminal
room and of second trneks.
It may  bo asked  why the terminal
spaoe and  the second trneks were not
available.     Speaking  for    the Canadian Pacific I would say that during
the    past, eight years    we    have had
every  year more money allotted   for
improvements than  we could expend.
Tbe men nnd material were not available to complete tbem although   the
work was prosecuted with the utmost
This year the Canadian Pacific will

Development Exceeded Expectation.
If we are perfectly frank with each
other we will have lo admit that development of the country has carried
everybody off his feet. The rush o!
Immigration and the introduction ol
gasoline farm machinery which enables the fnrmer to break 30 acres a
day, has brought the Innd tinder cultivation at a rate unprecedented In
the history of the world. Since 1907
the acreage under grain cultivation

In conclusion Mr. Bury advocates

Bella**.—The child prodigy is sufficiently rare in this city to cause
somewhat ol a stir, and May Leslie,
a twelve-year-old poetess, Is lor the
time being a personage. It all came
about through the publication ol "A
Child's Book of Verse, by a child,"
for the work was pretty and dainty
enough to cause Inquiry to be made
into its authorship.
Hay Leslie accepts the notoriety
that has (alien to her lot with a mod
esty not always found In older poets.
She shows a charming Inclination to
talk to interviewers, even when ths
wily newspaper man takes care at
the outset to praise the large Teddy
Bear of which she Is so load.
Her father hu therefore to be applied to lor Information about the
little poetess. It appears that her
favorite poem Is "Hiawatha," aad
that like greater singers she Is subject to fits ol inspiration at awkward
hours. Sometimes ol nn evening
when Mr. Leslie supposes bis child
to lie sleeping, he bears aa eiclted
little voice calling him,"Father, I've
got a bit ot poetry. Come up I" And
taking pencil and paper he goes to
May's bedside to take down at her
dictation a little poem about a flower or a baby's slumber Bong. The
cradle songs are generally composed
to get the Teddy Bear oft to sleep.

With tlriB object In view, the Besslons
of the convention and the Bmoker In

as possible, and nothing will be
omitted to encourage the prospectors
to express their view*.

At this critical point, Instead of relinquishing his hold on the precious

would considerably dissipate the In-

Prolessor Rudolph Binder, ol New
York University, has written a very
brilliant dissertation on "romantic
love." We frankly admit that tbe
discourse Ib extremely Instructive. II
not exactly convincing—especially to
those old-fashioned people who still
adhere to the ancient moralistic
landmark*. Tbe professor defines the
phrase "romantic love" as "the
happiness which one person finds in
another's company." He deplores tht
fact that In our larger cities the lack
of privacy prevents the visiting informally of girls hy young men. The
home environment Is limited and un-
congenial, and these conditions are
not favorable to young people getting
acquainted. These arguments arc
startling to say the least. Few par |
ents will countenance this sort o (
privacy, and all philosophical stud- j
ents of human nature will readily
admit that this kind of "romantic
love" (associated wttb such an un
warrantable, freedom from constraint)
would undoubtedly, sooner or later,
degenerate into that familiarity
which is always the fore runner of
libidinoslty and profligacy. A young
man calling on his sweetheart, who
objects to the presence ol any mem
her ol the family, and insists on being alone Is not a desirable suitor.
The prolessor goes on to explain
that "material love" merely "wants
the possession ol the other person.'
We much preler this kind ol affection,
in contradiction to that which it
satisfied "with only the company".
Misery and degredation in their worst
forms are oftentimes the outcome of
this latter dangerous method ol

In hard luck. It wan a love match all

Yon; entry may be one of the thirty-six
There arc four j 100.000 cash prlaes for

Tha eon teat is ao arranged that the umount

to bo tin expert photographer or trained writer.
Wo wont facts, not art or essays. En trios wilt

Standpoint, Bo don't pay particular attention

built the silo, or tho barn or cistern. As for
the photograph, thai neoQ not worry you. Your
son's or da-ughtor'a camera will do nicely.
In nny evertt, do not lot the Idea of having
a photograph inude drier you from entering
the oompautloiti Vour local dealer has been
requested to help In nines where tt Is not convenient for the farmer to procure a camera
in the neighborhood. Thus you arc on nn
