CRANBROOK,   B.C.,   SATURDAY,     MAY   22,   1909.
No. 21
Vancouver, B. C, May 18--A clash
was narrowly averted tonight between atreet HpoakcrH and a squad of
police. Several hundred people until-
'iirroll streets, following the an
nouncement at a mass meeting
night that a tree speech meeting
would be held in detlunce of the police.
The police ordered the crowd to disperse tonight and jeers and hoots ie-
suited. L. T. English, who was at
the time speaking, continued, and
paid little attention to the officers.
The police took no summary action,
but the speakers will be summoned to
police court  tomorrow
The following selection of bon mots
were sent out by the Liberal publication committee at Ottawa this week
to the Liberal papers of the west: , ,. -    ■■
•Hon. Wm. Pugsley make* mince •"<■ »} th« co™«1' ot Hastings
meat of a report by some New Brun- OwoU streets, following t
Kwtck political commissioners, and
BDoffs its contents to be reckless, unreliable, untrue and contradictory.
Mis honor and reputation completely
"Hon. Mr. t'ugsley annihilates his
traducers in a brilliant effort lasting
four and a half hours. When he concluded there was nothing left of the
report but the cover.
"The Tories tlnally hacked down.
The Grand Trunk Paclflc loan has finally passed the house, close upon a
masterly address by Sir Wilfrid Laur-
ier the house voted on the measure
and the conservatives came into line
and voted solidly for It."
The incident which provoked the
above questions is first a speech by
the Hon. Mr. Pugsley, who himself
says that the Royal commission that
Investigated the Brunswick Central
Railway scandal, were not careful,
but had made statements not in accordance with the testimony. Also
that the evidence was false and not
according to facts. The house proceedings, after a long speech by Mr.
Pugsley, and by a straight party
vote sustained Mr. Pugsley. It was
the same old story of "ask my brother if I am a thief."
After Sir Wilfrid had made a masterly speech the Grand Trunk loan
passed. In other words Sir Wilfrid
plainly intimated to his followers
that it was his desire to pass the
bill, and it was passed.
Mr. Pugsley annihilated his traducers. In other wordB Mr. Pugsley is
an honest man by his own testimony
and the Landry commission and witnesses that appeared qefore the commission are detractors, traducers and
untruthful, while "Slippery Bill" is
fit to wear a white garment and
sprout a pair of shining wings.
Thinking men, as the facts were
presented by the commission, prefer
to be.ieve Judge Landry and his associates, than take the word of the
accused Mr. Pugsley.

A meeting which represents a new
force in the communal life ot Cran-
brook was held in the court house on
Monday evening at 8.30. This was a
meeting to perfect the organisation
of the Moral and Social Reform Council of British Columbia recently organised in Vancouver and which together with councils of all other provinces of Canada is affiliated with the
Moral and Social Reform Council of
Canada. Representatives were present from the several protestant churches, fraternal societies and labor unions. Rev. C. O. Main was chosen
President; Rev. E. P. Flewelling 1st
vice president and G. W. Patmoro
2nd vice president and H. White secretary treasurer. A commltteee was
appointed to draw up a constitution
and draft the policy of the council.
. The aim of the council is to centralise in one organisation all efforts of
reform in the community. Its work
will be to deal with temperance, gambling, Immoral literature and obscene
pictures, social vice, law enforcement,
educating and sensitising public opinion, oversight of voters' lists and
In other ways to advance the moral
and social welfare of the community.
The attention of the council at pre
sent will be concentrated on the sup.
pression of the social evil, as the
most glaring of Cranbrook's evils
and a committee was appointed to
draft a petition to the police commissioners urging the enforcement of
the law for the suppression of the
curse. Thi6 petition is to be circulated among the voters. Letters are
to be sent to the various organisa
tions not already represented, asking
that representatives be appointed to
the council at once. The meeting adjourned to meet on Friday, May 28,
to hear the report of the committees.

In Brandon temporary damage was
done to the lighting plant and the
same occurred at Wolseley where the
well of the lighting plant caved in
just before the shock, plunging the
town into darkness. At Gronfell the
shock was so severe that horses travelling on the road had difficulty in
keeping their feet. In Winnipeg, at
Saskatoon, Rogina, Moose Jaw, Medicine Hat and other places people
rushed wildly out of their houses expecting worse to follow and it in reported in at least one city that they
expected the end of the world had
come. Curious too, it is reported
from lleRina that the buildings most
shaken there were the best constructed buildings of concrete, while other
buildings, with perhaps more give
and take, withstood the shock well.
Farmers in the neighborhood of Medicine Hut thought the quake due to
the fearful explosion of gun cotton
Btored there, while in several caso3
rumbling as of thunder was reported
to have immediately preceded the
shocks, which generally lasted 20 seconds, from two to four in number at
22.17 central time, though one locality reports a final shock about midnight.
It it not too much to say that tho
event has astounded the west. Nothing else is talked about. Prof. Allen
of Manitoba university encourages
the belief that it has never happened
before and may never happen again.
Farther reports as to the earthquake which occurred In the west on
Saturday night confirm the impression that the disturbance was confined to the southern part ot the prairie country. Nothing was felt at Vancouver or anywhere on the Pacific
coast, Calgary being the most westerly point at which there was a tremor and there it was just barely perceptible. At the eastern end the disturbance did not spread beyond Winnipeg. Southerly it extended into
Minnesota and northerly to Prince
Albert, but at both of these extremes
the shock was slight.
Moose Jaw and Reglna were the
centres of the disturbance. No damage was done anywhere. A second
shock has evidently occurred through
some parts of the country early this
morning. The shock was felt in Montana and was recorded on the seismograph at Toronto, but doeB not
seem to have effected the region which
was visited Saturday night.

were ordered from the cab and were
commanded to uncouple the mail cat
from the train.
When this was done the two ruffians

kept back by the shots from the revolvers of the bandits, who stood
guard while the enginemen were uncoupling the mail car. He then sent
word to the nearest telegraph station
uf the holdup.
There was in addition to the two
men in the cab of the engine two
more on the top of the rear of the
tender who were acting as guards.
One of the men in the engine was six
foot tall, slender, dark hair and was
smooth shaven, wore white slouch
hat with small brim, dark coat and
trousers, about 35 or 40 years old,
had white handkerchief over his noso
but it slipped down and showed his
face to be wrinkled. The other man
in the cab was about five feet eight
inches tall, weighed about 1C0 or 170
pounds, dark complexion, dark slouch
hat turned down and slit in the back
and wore dark coat, light checkered
trousers, heavy tan shoes, had red
handkerchief over the nose as a mask
and blue handkerchief around neck.
This man understood the running of
an engine.   The ofcher did not.
The president of the railroad     has
authorised     a reward of $10,000 for

Montreal, May 20—Shrubb won the

that     Shrubb's     right leg had gone
back on him since the Longboat race!

that he would fade away after     the j -     .

ondary Interests. Canada's growing
time hns arrived. The period of prosperity which has heen under way with
little fluctuation for two decades has
vastly altered the social and economic conditions of the Dominion; there
has heen a levelling up, a spread of
luxury and luxurious modes both of
life and of thought, The result has
been to provide more leisure, and
with it a natural turning to the pro-1
blems of the age. Canada 1ms begun
to look beyond her own borders, and
realise that she can only develop in
sympathy with the sentiment of the
empire. International attairs loom!
larger on her horizon. The policy of
foreign nations has begun to attract
her attention. Commercial
with the United States, with France
and with Germany have drawn her
into the sphere of diplomacy. Her
fishing and boundary interests have
necessitated a closer acquaintance
with International law and although
most ol these matters have been
dealt with through the medium of
the home government Canada has
been represented in the negotiations
by her own statesmen and jurists.
The improvement of the cable and
press services has brought the Dominion into closer touch with the Mother
Country. The vastly increased travel
from both sides of the Atlantic and
the interchange of platform by leaders of thought from both countries
have given Canada a wider purview.
Its national aspirations were well
outlined by Mr. Sanford Evans, who
adopted the line of argument so im
pressively suggested by Lord Milner,
and perhaps after all first picturesquely stated by Mr. Kipling in his
famous phrase "The White Man's
Burden." Mr. Evans' contention that
Canada is already proving too small
for Canadians and that, inheriting
the instincts and the traditions of tht
British race, they will cherish the
same    ideas and ambitions appealed.

the "White Man's Burden" is the
price which Canada, In common with
every branch of the Anglo-Saxon family, will have to pay for nationhood.
That burden is not a mere percentage
of dollars and cents, but a share In
forming the policy and giving effect
to the program which imperial interests may demand, and involves a
study of International questions and
of world's history. These convictions
are being driven home, und are being
responded to In u manner which Just-
Ifies the most optimistic anticipations concerning the future. England
has one well known motto—"What
we have we'll hold."-Mr. BvanB suggests another for Canada—"What we
defend we can hold," and the maxim
contains a great truth to which the
country is JUBt becoming alive. In
the extent ot her natural resources
and her potential wealth Canada can
justly compare with any portion of
the empire, but this is the narrowest
sense in which she is capable of ach
ieving Nationhood. It is the bigger
thought, the broader sympathy and
the loftier Ideal which must crowh
her ambition, and she is working towards this, and will nttnin it.

The discovery that dies ure responsible for a great amount of disease,

addition to human knowledge. It is a

strong a hint to everybody.
Doctor    Daniel     Johnston   of New

emphatic     of    the    recent     charges
against the fly.   He says that, regarded in the light of recent knowledge,
the fly is    more dangerous than the
tiger or tho cobra.   More than that,

It is a Tonic you want! Physicing lowers
the system and makes it more susceptible
to disease. The winter months have been
a great strain upon your vitality and unless you put the blood in good
condition all manner of evils will overtake you. PSYCHINE is the
Greatest of Tonics and should be taken by every one at this season
of the year. PSYCHINE assists the gastric juices and ferments in
their digestion of the food, cleanses the mucous membrane of the
Stomach, and has an Invigorating and beneficial effect on the muscles
and nerves. For ^atarrh of the Stomach, Ulceration or Weak Stomach, Dyspepsia, the use of PSYCHINE is strongly advisable.
PSYCHINE acting on the Stomach restores it to a healthy condition,
then acts through the itomich upon all the vital organs, creates an appetite, bringing
renewed vitality and strength to the entire lystem and enables it to throw off disease
ol every kind. It is the greatest health-
giver known to medical science.

This ingredient is only one of several
very important native, medicinal roots
in l>r. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery. This is a remedy which has enjoyed the public approval for marly
forty years, nothing new or untried
about it, has cured thousands of people
of those chronic, weakening diseases
which are accompanied by a cough,
■uch as bronchitis and incipient con-
BUinption. More than thai, bv reason
of the other Ingredients, Bloodroot,

which are scientifically extracted and
combined in Or. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, remarkable cures of
dyspepsia and stomach disorders have
been accomplished.
Nearly forty years ago, Dr. Pierce
discovered that chemically pure glycerine of proper strength is a better
solvent and preservative of the active
medicinal principles residing in most of
our indigenous or native medicinal
plants than is alcohol. As its use ig
entirely unobjectionable, while alcohol
is well known when used even iu
small portions, for n protracted period,
to do lasting injury to the human system, especially in the case of delicate
women and children, he decided to
use chemically pure glycerine instead
of the usually employed alcohol in
the preparation of his medicines.
He found that the glycerine, besides
being entirely harmless, possesses intrinsic medicinal properties of great
value. Its nutritive properties, Dr.
Pierce believes, far surpass those of
cod liver oil, entitling it to favorable
consideration in all eases of incipient
consumption and other wasting diseases.
