THE LAND OF SUNSHINE
A. Creighton Writes  of (he Isle
uf   Pities
1 from i ii« free Press I
In accordance with tlie resolution pus-
sril ut I lie board uf trade meeting u"
Tuesday evening.  Officer Hunes will Ht
ouce take stepi to stop cattle running ai
urge.
An 8ot)ii hh llie frost is out of tbe
grouml tliu C, 1'. R. will have their stu-
iiuii am] freight shed at Pernie moved
nnt even witli tliu mail, in older to make
room fnr more sidings.
Nearly 40,00.) tons of coal were taken
uut of the Pernie mines during ths montb
of March. Tin-; is nu increase of nearly
twu hundred [ier cent over the same
month last year—a record General
.Milliliter Wilson and his suhordiuates
have Huml reason to feel proud of.
There was a noticeable lack of football
players at the meeting of the athletic association on Wednesday evening. If the
football boys of Feruie are not alive to
tlie benefits to be derived from such an
association it is time they were. Steps
should be taken immediately to organize
the club for tbis season.
The first meeting ofthe Fernie Amateur Athletic association of tbis season
was held in the billiard room of the
Royal Motel ou Wednesday evening, and
was probably the most t-uccessful in tbe
history of the association, there being
over forty present and all seeming to
take a great interest in all tbe proceeding, which make Ibe prospects look
exceeding bright for this season's sport.
Half the crib work for tbe first row of
126 coke ovens is now about complete,
and as soon as tbe frost leaves tbe
ground the masons will be able to go
right abend with tbe ovens, A vast
amount of work has been done during
tbe last two weeks by the gang of men
engaged on tbis work, and by the time
the masons are ready to start will bave
tbe docks completed, -which will greatly
facilitate the handling of material, thereby lessening to a considerable extent tbe
cost of each oven.
The people of Fernie are again under
Hit* necessity oi admitting that there is
a case of small-pox iu town. On Saturday last a man was seal up from Michel
to the hospital here, by Dr. Ilrodie. The
man hud only been in Michel a few days
when he was taken sick, having come
there from Spokane, Wash., where there
is said to be a lot of small pox. A day
or two after his arrival here the doctors
in attendance at the hospital came to
conclusion that the man had small-pox,
and at once bad him removed to lhe pest
house iu the old towu, and the authorities hat) the hospital quarantined anil
other necessary precautions taken to prevent the spread of the disease.
Everyone will readily admit that Gov
ernment Agent Armstrong is one of the
best miUircd men in existance. Nevertheless, he was madder thau two wet
hens on Thursday when he got some of
the bills in connection wilh the recent
small pox case. In these cases the government pay nil ordinary expenses, but
Mr Armstrong says lhey will certainly
uot pay for such things as hair pins,
newspapers, magazines, tobacco, cigars,
velvet ribbon, elc. The bills already
sent In amount to over -fa 500 in conncc
tiou with this one case, and Ibis does uot
include anything for the actual loss sustained by the Royal Hotel in the destruction of bedding, furniture , which
should certainly be paid by tbe government,

such a way as to break one of his legs.
He was taken to the hospital, aud the
accident will lay him up for six or seveu

II is time for the "small boy" of Craubrook to quiet down, lie has been a
little too gay of lute.
THI! WRITKR IS  liN'OMNti  HIMSELF
West Alexander, Pa., March 2-,,  19m
Hditor   Herald:   Quite   a   number   of
Craubrook people wanted me to write and
tell them of Cuba and its prospects, after
being there, and 1 take this opportunity
through your valuable paper to give tbem
my judgement and what I bave seen and
done.   I started for Cuba by wayol New
York, after visiting my sister, Mrs, Oldham, in West Alexander, Pa„ and the old
school  mates  around Wheeling,   West
Virgina, last December,   Wheu we arrived in New York  we concluded that
Mrs. Creighton was  not strong enough
to make the trip so wc came back to
West Alxander, and Mrs. Creighton remained there while I visited (he laud of
sunshine aud flowers.  While in Havana,
along witb a number ct gentlemen looking after investments, 1 came to the conclusion that owing to the political situation, Cuba was not the place for safe investment  at  the   present  time.   So a
number of us began to look to other fields
for investment,    Iu company with about
twenty five   other  Americans    I   went
across to tbe Isle of Tines, where we
seemed to have found a laud, not only of
sunshine and flowers, but a laml flowing
with milk and honey, aud ladened with
all kinds of tropical fruits.   This island
is one of the islands ceded lo the United
States by Spain in the treaty of Paris,
and believing tbis island will be under
tbe protection  ofthe United States  we
foimed a company and bought  22,000
acres of land.   We intend to move on
this laud and make it bloom like the
rose.   Mrs. Creighton and myself intend
to start there the first of April.   We will
take n steam boat at Wheeling and travel 1,500 miles to New Orleans, taking a
steam ship from there to Havana, across
the west etui of Cuba by rail, then steam
ship 60 miles across lhe Caribbean sea
to the Isle of lines.     This island is
woudeifully beautiful in all ofits natural
scenery.    There are many springs and
small streams of pure water, picturesque
views, mountains of granite and marble
dot  the island,   rich   valleys of tillable
land covered with luxuriant grass, sandy
ridges of pine timber,    lakes of clear
water, mineral medicinal and magnesia
springs, miles of fine sandy beach  and
forests of fine hardwood.    The climate
is perfect, the   maximum   temperature
never going above 90 degrees in the summer and  not below 60 degrees   iu   the
winter.     Here   one can  enjoy eternal
spring ami  life is worth the living.    It
is healthy here, there  being no yellow
(ever aud not a single case has ever been
known 011 tbe island.   The soil produces
the finest of tropical fruits.   The orange,
lemon and grape fruit grow here better
than anywhere in lhe  world.    They are
of good si/e, delicious flavor and bright
color.   Tlu-y grow wild along the roadside and in the forests, and as there is no
frost  fruit and vegetables are always a
■afe crop.   Tbe mineral springs of magnesia water are fine and  have effected
surprising cures.   In my judgement the
opportunity for investment 011 the island
is only one ofa lifetime.   Kvery prospect seems blight for almost anything
that any person would want to invest in.
Among some ol these it seems to me that
raising and grazing cattle in a country
where grass grows all the year,  amino
bad insects to peitertbe life onl of them (
would bea very remunerative business.
A fruit factory, to can pure fruit and
jam, where all the fruits are raised with
cheap sugar and labor and the best shipping facilities to all part* ofthe world,
ahoii'd be profitable,  also furniture factories, where the finest woods on  earth
can be had for tbe cutting,  planting of
orange, lemon and coconut groves, raising chickens, goats and bees,  anything
it seems to me will pay and pay well.
Good land can be had now at from five
to ten dollars per acre, but this will not
last long as I think the land, when improved, will he more valuable thau  the
improved orchards of California.   Going
by tbe river route it will take Mrs Creig-
tou and myself  about three weeks to
reach our  destination.    Otherwise  we
could go by rail in about four days, but
aa I bave more time thau anything else,
we prefer to go by river.   I will write
you then and tell you my post address.
Until then send paper same as  before
T. A, Creighton.

Will ten by a Cranhrook Player,*]
it promptly at tbe advertised
time, 5 p.m. last Friday, teams from the
Nelson and Cranbrook Football clubs
lined out on the grounds of the Cran
brook Turf & Athletic association. Rob
in son kicked the ball off lor Cranbrook,
but it was smartly returned ami the
game settletl diwn in Cranbrook territory. A succession of tight scrimmages
followed, with little advantage to either
side, until the Nelson team got down to
work, and gelling control of the ball,
their forwards on several occasions heeled
out with the result that their three quarters made several determined efforts to
score The Craubrook three quarters
chased them closely, how <■ ver, Beale
paving great Bltetttiou in this respect to
h:s formidable opposing three quarter,
Macrae, the Nelson captain. Nelsou, at
onetime, looked like scoring, however,
when Nace, supported hy Hodge, was
heading straight for the Cranbrook goal
Hue. Wallinger saved the situation by
successfully tackling Hodge almost simultaneously as he teceived the pass.
Nelson would not, however, be denied,
and after 25 minutes of play from a
scrimmage   live   yards   from   Craubrook
goal line, Thomson gained possession of
the ball and fought bis way across
Macrae failed to make the major point
ami half time artlved wilb nothing
further scored.
Afler the interval the Cranbrook team
showed marked improvement, their forwards playing up in vigorous manner,
and Beale and Fenwick in the back
division making some due runs. Soon
the Cranbrook's turn to .score came
Their forwards dribbled down the ground
and found touch right ou the Kelson
goal line. From the throw iu MacDon-
alil secured the ball aint scored. Thr
kick at goal failed, Tbis made the scort
even, three points each, ami lob teams
struggled to make a winning play, but
when the referee blew "no side" neltbei
had succeeded. It was decided to play
a furiher ten minutes, ami soon things
looked critical for Cranbrook. The Nel
son forwaids determinedly drove their
opponents back into their 25 and held
them their to the end of the game. The
pressure was occasionally relieved bu*
Seatle at all times did the needful by
some neat and effective kicks back Into
touch. Time was finally called at thc
right moment to save Cranbiook from a
dangerous position.
Of the game as a whole, it was good,
and Cranbrook did well—in fact ihe)
surpassed the expectations of their moil
sanguine supporters. Il was a most
friendly game, owing to the generous
conduct of tlie Nelson captain iu refusing
to claim penalties they were entitled to
from the infraction ot rules made by the
Cranbrook players—infractions, it should
be snid. caused by an insufficient ac
quaintance with the rules of the game
Nelson bail a heavy team and Ting
Thompson and Sergeant in their forward
line ditl yoeman service. Their backs
were handicapped in llieir palling by
the greasy state of the bai':, a fact which
did not weigh so much with Cranbrook
as lhey ditl not, with one or two exceptions, attempt much Ireedom in passing.
The players were as follows :
Nelson:—Full back, Mason; wing,
three quarter, Seatle, Macrae, fcapt.);
halves, Hodge, Nase; forwards, Sargeaut,
Winter, Thompson, Eden, Holmes.

Cranbrook:—Full    back,    Wallinger:

il is sure to be a hot one.

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
There is not another town in British
Columbia that has made more substantial progress than has Cranbrook.' She
it amis today as a prosperou*, progress
ire and substantial town, with a future
that makes every man who owns pro
perty here sorry that he does not own
more. 	
Now there Is a movement on foot to
form all the railroads into one Krand
combination. When this li done, t'-oA
help the people!    Therallto.ds won't.
A Cranbrook church warden told The
Herald tbis week that his church was
about ready to declare a dividend. This
must be a practical illustration of the
sajlng, "salvation la free.''
A church fair ia where, dfteen women
do 857 worth of mighty hard work,
twenty-six husbands contribute Sis io
■tuff to sell, twenty-nine young men buy
14i worth of articles for which they
bave no use, the church clears $hh, and
then follows great rejoicing over the
godliness of the people and the good
work done.       	
The Trail News has vastly improved
under the new management. It Tanks
now as oae of the best weekly papers lo
the province,
A Strathcona Horse hero, watched
the Hugby game last Friday and afterwards remarked: "I would rather
storm a kopje covered with Boers for 21
hours than play that game ten minutes.''
It seems that the present government
adjourned for two weeks to nnd out
what to do,
Tbe Slocan Drill is one year old. The
people of tbat town, If they know how
to appreciate a good thing, will be liberal In their support of the Drill, It Is
doing good work for Its town and the
province.
A writer in the St. Thomas, Ont,
Times, has the following, which comes
very near hitting the bull's eye-
How the poor wlnened, shriveled-up,
•mall souled people do worship at the
shrine of Mammon I How abjectlv they
creep to the alter of tbe dollar mark!
how they do cringe and grovel and
crawl at the feet of mere appearance,
which may or mav uot have the great
god ot wealth ba'ck-of It: Let a ragpicker fall betr to a few thousands, and
straightway build a fine house, wear one
clothes and give a swell reception, and
he will not want for guests. People
who would not a few weeks before have
ttuched him with a fishing-rod, now
wilsper with bated breath and awe-
siricked tone? j "He haa fallen heir to
•ver so many thousand—he's HIGH!"
And so they (jwn and smirk and Natter,
aad the poor idot istlckled todemh and
lets tbem "^1] his teg," which is a vulgar term, but most expreasive, and is
happy because be thinks he has got into
Society!
Tbe millinery season Is upon us, with
all its terrors tothe married man, while
the unmarried man sees wltn the coming
of warm weather the annual fight with
tbe Ice cream octopus,   Such Is life.
This portion of British Columbia has
as fine a climate as can h: found on the
American continent.
There will te many properties m:t'e
•hipping mines in B-Jttth Kast Ktoteney
this season,
The Herald mists that Fort Steele
will get her railroad. It will be a good
tblng for the dlit  ct
Tbe editor of the greenwood Miner
publishes a neat and able paper y tt, . t
times he talks through hs hat, e pec-
lally wben he attempts to criticise the
editor of the Phoenix Pioneer. Wilcox
Is publishing one of the best papers In
British Columbia and deserves credit
for It. 	
House parties are In fashion. Mr.
aud Mrs. E, H, Small have a number of
guesta this week.
Chamber of Mines Dead.
The Chamber of Mines, which proposed to do so much for southern British
Columbia, has not materialized for wont
of funds. To do all it proposed would
cost $I0,ooo, and no grant could be secured from the government. The asso
elated hoards of trade will urge the government to establish a literary bureau on
tbe lines the chamber proposed to
follow.

MARRIED AND INJURED.
Mr.   Peter   Matheson  and    Miss   Manic
Dupont Were tbe Uatorunatei.
Last Tuesday evening at 8 o'clock,
Mr. Peter Matheson and Miss Maggie
Dupont were united iu marriage at the
Presbyterian church, Kef. Fortune
ofticiutiii}'. The wedding was a very
pretty one und quite a uumher of gueata
were present. After the ceremony the
bride ami groutu got into a carriage 11
Ihe church door, accompanied hy Miss
McEacherau. Harry Fairfield waa driving, anil as the team started up Arm
strong Avenue to llakerSlreet the horses
were frightened by a lot of boys with tin
cans, und became unmanageable. Both
Matheson and Fuiifield were pulled out,
aud the team dashed up the street with
only the two ladies remaining in the
carriage. Near J II. Gieer's house they
both jumped, and the team was caught
ou Baker Street. Miss McEacherau received a had cut on tbe face aud severe
bruises. The bride was badly shaken up
hut uo serious injuries. Mr. Matheson
was injured iu tbe back, but is recovering. Fortunately all escaped with no
nones broken. It was a bad ending to a
wedding party, but Tbe Herald hopes
tbat the bride and groom may live to
enjoy so much happiness aud prosperity
as to forget it.
Why (iold Is Standard.
The real reason why gold became
worth $20 67 per Hue Troy ounce, Is because the charter which iu 1877 was
granted to the Bank of England by the
Knglish parliament, and which made it
at the time aud until recently—through
the powers delegated to it by tbe British
nation—the financial heart of tbe world
made it obligatory upon the institution
to buy immediately and for apot cash iu
curreut legal money (coin or paper at tbe
option of the seller) auy and all gold
brought to it at the rate of three pounds,
seventeen shillings and nine pence per
standard ounce, the standard being 9162 3
one-thousand line, or eleven-twelfths.
Iu its turn the mint of Great Bri'a'u
agreed to receive all such purchases from
the bank tinting the busiuess hours of
two days of each week, aud pay for them
at tbe rate of three pounds, seven shit
lings, ten ami one half pence per stand
ard ounce. This latter figure translated
into American money corresponds to
£30,67 per ounce of pure gold.
East of the Koutenay River.
Prom i'oit st-jeie I'fospGGcor,
Messrs. Walls and Taetihauser left Fort
Steele ou Thursday with a large amount
of supplies. They will develope a group
of claims on Baker creek, a tributary of
St. Mary's river. The group comprises
four claims, Francis A, Lily May, St.
John aud Little Joe. List year's development consists of several tunnels, No. 1 is
in 32 feet, No. 2 in 3S feet, No. 3 [11 ta
feet, No, 4 in 20 feet. The ore is copper
carrying values iu gold and silver.
The Pekin claim bas been worked all
winter. The shaft is now down over 40
feet, two shifts have heen added to the
force, and from now ou work will be
pushed. The vein is 10 to 15 inches iu
width, having a total value of $50 to the
ton.
Tlie owners of the Dodo group of
claims aie makiug preparations to do a
large amount of work on Hie property aa
soou as the season will permit.
Tbe Chinese Commission.
The burden of evidence so far collected
by the commission is decidedly against
the heathen resident, and it he is unable
to show any better leason than be bas as
yet given why he should he allowed to
stay in the country he will undoubtedly
have to go. This may be a sorrowful
outlook for bis sentimental clerical
friends iu eastern Canada v. ho want to
deluge this country with these Oriental
ragamuffins for tbe purpose of Christain-
izing them, but we famy that their thin
quavering pipings will sound rather
small in the ears ofthe federal legisla-
toas when the report ofthe Chinese commission has been submitted to the
house-—Rossland Miuer.
