The Kootenuy rlvor Hows In n
sou the iiy direction from tho muni)
tulna south of Wlndormoro to tlio
international bouudary. Tho Koote
nuy valley hus un average width ot
from live to twenty miles, and when
nni! visits uny portion "l the valley,
it soon becomes apparent that im
Hire bus ubundently supplied it with
natural wealtb, aud was intended by
the Creator to be tho abodo of civilized men.
Here the winters are short, tlie
climate mild and balmy, nnd the
strong soil, tho immense areas oi
timber, suggested to the settler,
aud the mill men, thnt here wus n
point to settle and create u home
und a Lasting industry.
The mill men hnve already taken
advantage of the great opportunities
of the lumber industry, nnd now
the settler und the fruit grower,
have came to tho conclusion that
mixed funning und fruit growing Ib
also a permanent source of wealth
in this district.
Apples, plums, prunes and cherries ns well us nil kinds of berries
grow to an enormous size, small
grains uud vegetables do well, and
Kootenny valley potatoes are as
good as can be produced In uny portion of the greut northwest.
Tho mineral industry of the ( ran
brook district, also tho lumbering
camps, furnish a splendid market
for all the products of stockmen,
dairy, farm  and  orchard.
Tbe greatest visible, nut urn I resources, surrounding tho City of
Cranbrook is the immense forests of
timber, consisting of iir, tamarack,
und pine, has furnished the opportunity for the investment of capital,
und creating an Important industry
in the manufacture of forests products.
With the completion of tho Kootonay Central railway, which is now
under construction, the Cranbrook
district will be traversed by a railway east and west, ami nortb and
south through tbe   entire district.
In addition to the mining, lumbering and agricultural resources, the
Kootenay river, with its tributaries
have immense water power, in many
instances running to waste, tbat in
the near future will prove to be a
source of wealth to the district.
The Bull Hiver Mining and Power
Company, have already under construction an immense power plant,
which when completed will furnish
every city, town nnd camp in the
district power to the extent of
10.UOU horse power.

THK   INTENDING    SETTLER.
If reports are true, and we have
no reason to doubt them, the inrush
of settlers to the Kootenuy valley
this year will be n record breaker.
Before the completion of tho Crows
Nest railway, the man wlio prophesied such an iurush, ns is expected
this year, would have been latlghod
ut. But the people who are coming
liuve investigated and know what
they are about, they will not be
denied, will not take stories of attempted farming, but will come in,
decide, nnd locate for themselves,
And being, ns they are, good farm
ers, fruit growers, and desirable
settlers, who seeing the great possibilities of making n cdmpotnnce out
ot tbe snil, with the thought of
more plentiously tilled pockets In the
future, will do much towards the
prosperity of the Craubrooli district.

We think some of the amendments
proposod liv tho opposition might wv.ti
have been Included, but wu realize tlml
to reopen tho question with the company would possibly have indeflnite'y
postponed construction. The troveru-
ment, too, has' taken full responsibility
that the ends Bought by the amend mtml-
will b" found to he secured within the
four corners of tho agreement ami only
the event can prove whether il has
failed herein or not
We do not know that anything fairer
ihan this could be expected from un
Opposition newspaper, nnd thoro Ih a
great deal of political sagacity in it.
for wlien lho work of construction hits
actively begun, it cannot be charged
against the world, as it can against certain other contemporaries, that, it
labored lo defeat so desirable a consummation.

The St. John Sun, the organ of the
defeated RobiDBon government or New
Brunswick, unlike the Victoria Times,
wasoandld enough to say that the fate
of the Liberal parti '" ••■** province
depended upon the result of ihe reeeut
eoutest, ami that Ihe result would have
a material Influence upon the approaching federal elections. Two days before
the poll was taken the .Sun -aid: "For
Liberals as a partj this campaign has
a new significance, E'er the first time
the provincial government is straight
Liberal in personnel, in sympathy aud
affiliations, mnl makes iu tirst appeal
upon straight party Unos. Its defeat
would mean Liberal disastor. It would
lie hailed all over Cauadtl as a ureal
Conservative vlctoi v. ns evidence thai
Laurier wa- losing his hold, thai a
tidal wave was forming tn the Maritime
Provinces whicli would later sweep htm
troiu power. Mr, Flaxen, w ho
professes to be a coalition leader and
yet has but one Liberal candidate on
his ticket throughout the province,
would not be in otlleu a week before he
would throw oil' bis dlsyui^o and begin
to lay a foundation lora Conservative
victory in the next federal campaign."

in this province is not altogether satisfactory to extreme partizans on either
side of politics, lu thu great work of
provincial development it must
inevitably happen that the policies of
the two governments will overlap- ao
that it will be impossible to applaud
the one ami attack the other. Certain
great public questions aro above party
lines, and the action of either the federal or | roviheial governmenl In
respect to them must be judged not
from the standpoint of political
exigency, imi from one of merit, The
Conservative who believes that
nothing good can coins out of
the Liberal Na/.areih and tho
Liberal who holds the same opinion
in regard to the Conservatives, will
have to get together and form a parly
)f their own, if they are unable to recognize the wisdom of the new order of
things. Tim extract from tho World
is not the only sample of good journal
ism that wo might q'uoto. The press
of the whole province, with one or two
exceptions, is adopting the moderate
discussion of public quustionsand showing itself mil-afraid to praise the nets

There is no doubt, and it mny be
safely said that the issue which Sir
Wilfrid Laurier will appeal to the
country, will be that of transportation. Their slogan will be "The
Grand Trunk Pacific" and let us
"finish the job."
At a recent meeting of the City
Council a by-law was introduced
prohibiting wash houses and laundries inside the fire limits. This is
a move in the right    direction     and
,is a protection to the    business por
j tion of the city.
TENDERS WANTED,— Tenders
will be received by the undersigned
up to April Ifith for the hauling of
four million feet of lugs. Kor full
particulars apply to Robinson-Mc-
Kenzle Lumber Co., Crnnbrook, H.C.
John Breckenrldge, of the firm of
! Rreckenridge & Lund, was at Leth-
', bridge recently and spent considerable time, evidently making estimates for a contract lor the construction of the new C. P. H. line
from Lethbridge to Macleod.
Mr. J. C. Patmore, a brother of
the Patmore Bins, (if this city, has
become a member of tbe above firm.
