The Herald has been a strong advocate ot patronizing home merchants.
Tbe Herald believes it is right, and
furthermore, it believes it Is a good bus
iuess proposition. There ia not a: man;
io Cranbrook today wbo has not come
here for the reason that, he considered
the opportunities better than at his former home tn the east. He remains.hete
because wages ore better, and it is possible for him to accumulate fsatcr. The
reason for this is the-resources of the
country, and the liberal spirit that pre
vails in doing business. Yet,, there- art
many wbo persist in working against
themselves by patronizing institutions in
Toronto for tbe chance of saving* few
dollars in a year. They do not seem to
appreciate tbe fact tbat if everyone did
that, it would not be long before the
same condition prevailed in Cranbrook
that exists in the eastern towns today.
The people of Cranbrook should bear
In mind that every dollar tbey send away
injures tbe towu just that much. They
should also remember that the home
merchant ia here all the time, contribute
ing his money and his. Urn* for the* upbuilding of the town, for improving conditions in Cranbrook by which everyone
of you will profit. What has any of
those eastern department, stores,, ever
done to make conditions in Cranbrook
any better ? Have tbey ever contributed one cent to building sidewalks, tq
promoting the best interests of tbe town?
These questions are pertinent ones, and
should be borne in mind bv every man
or woman wbo buys a poatoihee order
for an eastern house.
Cranbrook merchants are: not exorbitant in their charges. They deal fairly
with the people, They give good values
for the money received. There is not a
merchant ib Cranbrook rolling in wealth
and they are aU doing a good business.
If tbeir profits were so large it would
not be .necessary for any one oi them to
remain in business long-.
Aud at this time, it might ba well to
suggest a word lo the merchant, although
os a rule, the Craobrook merchant is a
bustler after busiuess. He should bear
in mind tbat the big city stores go after
trade, Tbey have the best ads tbey can
get. They get out attractive circulars,
good catalogues and handsome booklets.
They argue, coax, explain and insist—
thev get the business. Some merchants
in. the smaller* towns, don't advertise. ,
They say. everybody ko-o-wt then and '
know what they sell, and that they have
no money to waste in telling people what
they already know, Or, if. they advertise at all, it will be in a careless, sloppy
manner, They fail to- give- to that part
of tbeir business the attention it da-
serves. Tbey will put in an ad, and
leave, it without change. They neglect
to tell tbe people what tbey have, and
yet would condemn a clerk if he stood
behind a couiitt* and watted for a customer to ask for what was wanteds and
failed to show new novelties and new

Dr. Barker li Ihe Only Victim Up te Ike
Prases! Time.
The case of Dr. Barber, who was
stricken with small pox at Fernie last
week, proved to be the only one.
Prompt measures were taken to protect
Iht. people. The unfortunate victim
wu taken to an empty building in Old
Town, with all the furniture and bedding
of tbe room, and was accompanied by
bis wife. He is getting along nicely aud
no cases bave developed. Tbe Royal
hot;! was quarantined, and every precaution taken for tbe safety of the people.
The Fernie Free Press, speaking of
tho-oase, says;
Those quarantined in the hotel are
Mr. and Mrs. Tuttle, Mr. and Mrs Clode,
Mr. and Mrs, Coutlee, Miss Macfarlane,
Miss Lee, J. S. T. Alexander, barrister;
A. E. Warren, station master; J. R.
Hanna, freight clerk; K. B. Panl, commercial traveler; Cou. Whalen aud Alex.
Home, bartenders; two dining room
girls, two Chinese cooks and a Chinese
boy who does chores.
Mr. and Mrs. A. B. Trites, of tbe London & Liverpool Co., and Mr. and Mrs.
J. H. Bricker, of the Crows Nest Trading
Co., were also in .the hotel, but as soon
as the faata became known Mr. and Mrs.
Trites secured a house in Old Town, and
Mr. and Mrs. Bricker one at Coal creek,
and have cince kept themselves completely Isolated, and will do so for a couple of week*. This is particularly hard
on these gentlemen,, ai both are badly
needed: ate tbeir places of business.
Dr. and Mrs. Barber have the heartfelt
sympathy of the whole town, and everyone will join the Free I're-ss in expressing tbe earnest hope that the doctor will
soon be himself again.
Mr. Tuttle also has the sympathy of a
host of friends. Occurrences of tbis sort
are alwaya sure to more or lesa hurt the
trade of a bouse for some time, to say
nothing of being shut up entirely for a
couple of weeks, The public, however,
can depend on everything being done
tbat has a. tendency to mitigate any ill
effects tbat might result from tbis case.
The Royal is a first class house, plastered
throughout, and as soou as lhc present
quarantine ia raised will be as. popular
as ever.

The Cold Weather Has Prevented
the St. Eugene Concentrator
from Running.
J. H. Wolfe, general manager of the
Sullivan Mining company, and C. W.
Burdsall, superintendent, were in town
yesterday. Mr. Burdsall lefl for Spokane
yesterday, aud Mr. Wolfe relurned to
Kimberley this morning.
A representative of lhe Herald saw Mr.
Wolfe, and in reply to inquiries about
the work at tbe Sullivan, tbat gentleman said:
"Owing to the ore road breaking up,
we found it necessary to reduce our
force from 40 to 18 men. We will still
continue to haul ore in the mornings as
long as tbe road is hard enough to bold
up tbe loads, but when Ihe breakup
comes we will have lo cease altogether
until the roads dry sufficiently for
"Just at this time Ibis partial close
dowu does not come in the light ofa
hardship, since the price of lead during
the last nine dnys has fallen nearly ft
per too pouuds, almost a cent a pound.
Of course this fall in quotations is nc
cording to the Loudon market, the one
by which we are governed in our sales.
Silver has also dropped four points, and
this makes a total of about $7 per ton
drop in tbe price of our product, which,
of course, is quite a difference, and must
be taken into consideration in our operations. Tbe fall in lead is the most radical in tbe past 15 months, and I look to
see it go up again wilb a rebound. I am
of the opinion that tbe prices will be
satisfactory as soon as the roads are in
shape for work. We will keep our pres
ent force at work developing. Everything on the property is looking fine aud
we have more reason to believe than
ever that tbe Sullivan is a grent mine.
' As soon as the conditions will per
mit, work will be inaugurated on the
spur from Kimberley to the mine. It
will take about two mouths to grade the
work, and then, as soon as the C. P. R
puts the rails on and gets the track in
shape, we will be ready for direct shipments from the mine. Tbe spur will be
aboat five miles iu length."    .
Tbe St. Euiene.
Tbe recent cold weather bas bad a
most disastrous effect on the carrying on
of operations at tbe St. Kugene. Owing
to the shortage of water the mill is still
idle, and will not start until such time as
the weather moderates. Thia will no
doubt occur within a few days uow.
Manager Cronin was seen yesterday and
asked regarding the proposed power
power plant which the company intends
to install. He said it was tbe company's
intention to pul iu an engine and boiler,
so that shutdowns on account of the lack
of water wit) be avoided. This will be
done iu the near future, but not at once,
as by the time tbe plant could be Installed tbere will be a sufficient supply
of water for all purposes.
Most of tbe men laid off are remaining
in town, as they know it will be only a
question of a short time until they will
again be employed.
Teit el New KM el Drill.
Colfax, Wash., Feb, 90,-Today W.
W. Waite gave a public exhibition ofthe
working ot his new rock drill, of which
mention waa made when the machine
was first patented. The teat was witnessed by a number of men who are Interested in mining. Tbe machine, which
is made to be operated by hand, consists
of four hammers, each weighing four
pounds, attached to a wheel, which is
turned by hand. Tbe drill is ^turned
automatically, the whole machinery being operated by turning a crsnk. One
man can run it easily. Much interest
was tikoh - in the test, which drew
large - crowd. A huge boulder
weighing about 200 pounds was used for
tbe test. One man turued the crank and
drilled a hole !n this rock, which ts one
of the hardest found in tbis country, at
tbe rate of an inch each minute. Miuing meu who witnessed Ibe test pronounced it a success and say that it will
revolutionize wining in low grade ore,
as lhe machine does the work oi eight
For Stable Copper Price.
According to a Salt Lake Tribune special from Boston lhe Financial News says
practically alt of tbe principal producers
of tbe country have entered into a gentleman's agreement to keep the price of
copper stable. These interests control
90 per cent of tbe total output of copper
in the country. The Calumet & Hecla,
Standard Oil properties and the Clark
mines are all parties to tbe agreement
which bas just gone into effect.
Precisely what level will be maintained is not known, but as the tendency of
the metal is to rise above 17 cenls it may
be that thc price will be allowed to go
to 17^ cents or 18 cents per pound. The
stability ofthe metal will he maintained
by adjustment of production, Both the
companies and the consumers will benefit by tbe agreement. Manufacturers
will be enabled to make long time contracts witb the exact knowledge of the
original coat of Ibe raw material.

The Cranbrook Hockey Team Defeats tbe
Moyie Boys Again.
Last Friday night the hockey innocents of Moyie were led to tbe slaughter
again, and the Cranbrook club spilled
the blood as usual. Tbe match was hastily arranged, aud the visitors arrived
ou the afterncon train. Quite a crowd
gathered at the rink, as it waa rumored
that Moyie bad brought oue or two
crack players wbo had not played wilh
the team before. This proved to be a
fairy tale, for the game was tbe same old
story. The boys were up against tbe
real thing, and they knew it. During
the first half tbey played a strong game,
aud fought valiantly for every succHs
gained. It was ip tbe last half that they
seemed to give up, and as a result, aside
from two or three good rushes, and now
and then an individual play or merit,
the close was punk. The score stood 15
to 5, in favor of Cranbrook, and the
players were as follows:

Constable Drumnood's Leaf Trip la Table?
1 Primer te Jill.
Constable Drummond, of Moyie, was
io towu this week with a prisoner, who
had been sentenced to jail at Fort Steele
for 30 days. The extra expense of keeping tbe government offices at a point off
tbe railroad is being beautifully Illustrated in this case. Tbe constable arrived with bis prisoner at 4 o'clock
Monday evening. The roads were bad
for driving over the dangerous bills, so
it was necessary to secure quarters at an
hotel until Wednesday morning, Then
a team had to be hired and the drive to
Fort Sleele made, returning again that
afternoon. As there is no evening train
west, Mr. Drummond was compelled to
stopover again until tbe next morning,
thus taking liim three days to convey a
30 dny prisoner from Moyie to the government jail. If the jail was located
where it should he located, at some point
on the railroad, no matter where, Mr.
Drummond would have been back at bis
post of duty tbe next morning,
It is incidents of ibis kind thnt display
tbe absurdity of making government
headquarters nt a poiut off tbe railroad
ia a large and growing district.
Miners' Union Dance il Moyie.
The Miners' Union will hold its second nnnual dance in Morley hall at

propose to huv-i one this year that will
eclipse all foi mer efforts.

Two Great Hockey Matches With Maay
Kinds of Fun.
The Ladies Put Up a Fine Game
and the Men Went Out
After Blood.
Tbere was fun at the rink last night
and a good sized crowd to enjoy it. The
two games billed for tbe eveuing proved
a great drawing card, aud from start to
finish it was an enthusiastic and jolly
gathering. No little interest waa centered in the ladies' match, but the big
event of tht evening was, of course, the
contest between lhe star skaters of ;he
town,   the lilootuers   and   the  Hobos.
Tbe ladies played a most interesting
game aud dun 11 titrated the fact tbat
in the numbei there were some most excellent hocket I'livers. The game was
hotly contested aud won by a score of

round of applause from enthusiastic
frieuds. Everything went off nicely, except some diffeiences that arose between
tbe individual playets. Ilaldy Morris
and Bob Gunn got iuto a dispute as to
wbo appeared the most graceful, which
was settled by Beattie telling bo.h of the
gentlemen that Gurd and Rankin were
entitled to thr palm. This was no more
than over whea Peltier kicked because

A curious criminal law exists in
Oroeco, A man who is there sentenced to death waits two years before  lho execution  of  Ihe sentence.
The London correspondent of The
New York Hun says "that Ihe most
promising market is Offered in ,the
United Kingdom for American furniture manufacturers," und also adds
that '"by sending good furniture enterprising manufacturers will find a
trade awaiting them which will pay
handsome prolits." The Canada Furniture Manufacturers, Limited, which
came inlo existence lasl. week, with
a capital of SM.000,000, is well
equipped to do a very largo export
trade. It has absorbed the Furnl-
ttirii Manufacturing Exporting Co.
of Berlin and Liverpool, and also tbe
Anderson Furnilure Co.'s Knglisli jr-
gniiiznfion. This will give the now
company ample facilities lo compete
wilh lhe United States factories successfully. In connect inn with this
we might add that tho Canada Furniture Manufacturers, Limiied, offer
a portion of preference stock to tho
public It Ih one of the best Invest-
meiiis offered.

our large shops, where two of the lords of
crention waited for dilatory women with
whom lhey had appointments.
Both had chosen a point of vantage at

At ten minutes after the noon hoar tbe

on tin* scene of a pretty little woman, a
Hushed ami bnrried little woman, who
eyed her liege lord askance ns she ap-
"I'm sorry I'm n few minutes late.
Jack," she suid, "but that dreadful tailor
wouldn't let me go until he'd basted the

"I'm sorry nl*o," responded her companion coldly, "for your tardiness will
necessitate my going without my luncheon. This is the last appointment I'll
ever make with ynu." And away they
went together, milady looking injured
and milord majestically offended, though.

The other man was not married. Thai
