It must not be presumed that th
Grand Trunk Pacific has retired from
the coming conflict. It will be

will confront the people of Canada.
and particularly the people of this

There is no getting away from the
fact. the Asiatic exclusion question

the great issues thai will be placed

Tiie Laurier government are strain
ing every effort to get its business
in shape so as to cull parliament

early Is tn get the machine in order
for much needed work. As the elec

next year, every effort, will he made
to have the machine running

The Cranhrook end of the machine will soon he making desperate
efforts to convince the people that it
>s strictly independent.
Utter recklessness has characterized the financial administra
tion ol Canada for the past ten
years No example is set of economy oi* thrift. No wonder private
■1 nance is •'frenzied" with our Do

defiance of every rule of business
and hand iii hand with a debauched

"  EGYPTIAN OF   POMPEII   "
The Egyptian or Pompeii, under
tho direction of Harold Nelson and

Pompeii. Nydiu, the blind girl, wanders through the streets selling How
ers.     Gluttons,  the noble    Athenian
con verses with her but does not
guess that she loves him, for tu
him she is but a child, and his
affect ions     are   centered   upon     lone,
the boa u I Uu I Neapolitan maiden
She nnd her brother, ApaeclffoB,
the Egyptian, and he, while trying
to keep the brother from becomlnn
a Christian, tries ut the suiuo time
tu win [one Tor bis bride. She,
however, loves (i'mucus. Tho Inter
est of the play circles round Arhuces
tbe Egyptian, who with bis huso
trenchory ami ounnhtR makes a

The plot is good. Tho cofltumoa

sandalled feet. Ihe flowing rubes,
and the bauds nr the Christians in
their black clonks and hoods.
Special scenery has boon provided
ami the Riirtaftl descends upon the

If you purchase a Kootenay

decide later that the
reservoir is a real
necessity, why, just
order it and attach it
yourself. It's easily
done. Merely
^remove the screws
and take off the plate marked
"REMOVE FOR RESERVOIR" (see top illustration),
which provides an opening
for the hot air to come
through and circulate
under the reservoir. Then attach,
