In his lirst reporl, Professor .Macoun, of Ibo Geological Survey, stated as foiWWS. 'The cause of lire
mild and molsl climaie of the I'acilic

Western Europe. A stream ol warm
water a lit lie south of the island of
Formosa, on tire eastern coast of
China, a current analogous io the
Gulf stream, is observed moving to
ihe north-easl. It passes east of

is nine degrees further north. With
these facts, the temperature of Sitka

easy to forecast the fuiure of lire
region wesl of lhe Cascades, between
Victoria and the Stlkirio river. The
tjlieen Charlotte Islands being more
Insular than Vancouver, must have a
climate even milder, and hence they
may he set down as of equal value,

Apart from ihe coasl region,
climate conditions of which obtain
fot a considerable distance up the
valleys ol ihc Fraser and Sl,e» na
rivers, ihe province enjoys, on the
whole, a climaie Unit Is'Unexcelled
esewhei'e. As i.s natural, lire more
elevated portions ate subject to
greater extremes of! tempera-lure, but
lire heal of summer is not of a depressing character, and while, in
some localities, a severe degree ol
cold is mel wllh, lhe bracing atmosphere largely removes Iho unpleasantness.
Taking lho various districLs seriatim, as    local topographic differences
eauso   so what     abrupl changes of
climate, ihe conditions in various
(arts of the province may now Ire
described with more particularity.
In the Koolenav dislriel, whicli embraces the drainage area of the Columbia river, comprising the motin-
Inin Ireh ol the Selkirks and the

lhc high average altitude renders the

This is accounted for by tho heavy

of Vancouver Island break the force
of thi- heavy storms sweeping oast-

are infrequent in the inland waters.

Mr. V. W, Valleau, who traversed
this district during the summer of
1000, reported that the country east
of Parle Pas rapids, is of the first
class. Al  Fort St. John, situated
Minn- 50 miles from the eastern boundary, he said: "Graiim and roots of all
kinds do well and ripen." In i
flrmatlon ol this Profesoor Macoun
writes regarding Mount Selwyn, the
dale being Julv llth:
"When we left the rivet in the
morning Uc thermometer stood at
Sl deg., and on the top of the mountain In latitude 58 north, 7,aim teet
above the sea, it stood al 82 deg."
As to conditions at Fori St. John,
he fully bears out Mr. Valleau's
statement. Professor Mocoun's conclusions are summarized as follows:
"That from the middle of April until the lirst week in November the
ground is lit for tbe plough, that winler is actually shorter on Peato river
Uiau in Manitoba, and lhat 1,200
miles north-west of Fort Garry a
milder temperature prevails in
autumn than at Unit point.1'
A.s to the northern country in general, ihe remarks of ihe same authority may well be carefully considered:
"Tlicfe can be no doubt that when
the forest is cleared, by whatever
cause, the soil will heeome drier and
the climaie wid become considerably
milder. Owing lo the latitude Ute
sun's rays fall obliquely on Ue forest, and," as a natural result, there is
little evaporation. As Jiermany was
to the Romans, so much of out northwest to us—a land of marsh and
swamp and rigorous winter. (ler-
mauy has Inin cleared of ter forest,
and is now one of the finest aud mosl

Gold wns ihe lodc-stono which first
attracted attention to British Columbia; nexl the fame of Its forests and
fisheries spread, and lumbering and
salmon fishing assumed the importance of great industries. The agricultural possibilities were overlooked
or ignored by the miner, lumberman
iiul fisherman, and for many years
the wor'd at huge was Ignorant of
their existence. The opening of the
c< uui I iy by 1 he t rnnk line and
branches of the Canadian Pacific railway, however, disclosed the faet that
ibe agricultural and pastoral lands of
British Columbia are not the least
valuable of its assets and that they
are not confined to a small proportion of the total acreage. Professor
Macoun, after careful personal In-
vesliualion, says:
"The whole of British Columbia,
souih of .ri2 degrees and easi of lire
Coast Range, is a grazing country up
to 3,600 feet, and a farming country

And still lhe question of the Conservative nomination is in doubt. Mr,
Harvey thinks he has it, and, perhaps, there is good reason for his
opinion. He is working early and
late to secure the coveted plum. Nu
tatonc is being left unturned, no man
is beliifl left unseen, no -scheme is being left undeveloped to secure lhe results that he so much desires. Antl
why not Harvey? Ile has done as
much as any man in South East
Kootenay for the Conservative party.
If there is such a thing in politics as
reward for labor performed, Harvey
has as much right, if not more, to
the nomination as any aspirant in the
field. It is true tliat Mr. Cavin,
who was defeated at the last election
by Dr. King, feels that he should be
sustained on account of the tight that
he made at that lime. But there are
people in the Conservative party who
entertain the opinion that Mr, Cavin
has had his opportunity and this
time someone else should be given a
show. Thm then* is Mayor Rogers.

llagie, the proprietor of the paper,
if be docs not know now, will know
wiihin six months after he has luvn

thai we said at that lime was absolutely true. We have no desire Io
knock the town of Lethbridge. It is
one of lhe very best towns in Alberta, antl within the next few years
will hardly have a rival in that great-

that are in no wise antagonls'tic t-o

said that wc did not believe that it

The GREAT SALE Still Continues
at Cranbrook's Greatest Store
THE mighty movement of goods spoken of in last week's paper was really mightier and greater than we had expected,
bul what sensible purchaser could withstand the prices quoted by the irresistable John Carter and his many assistants.
Imagine Men's Suits, regularly sold at $10.00 to $12.50 being sold at $5.50. This is not all. We have decided to
place tlie carving knife still deeper, and will sell balance of this line, viz., about 80 Suits, at $165. We have somewhere about
40 OVERCOATS, in all sizes, this year's production, ranging in price from $10.00 to $24.00. We will bunch the lot and
sell at $6.95.   Get in early and avoid the jamb.
The sale in Boys', Girls', and Children's Shoes is still continued, and the prices, as you may well know, have been cut
to the bone. Parents, this is a line you cannot afford to miss if you have children going to school. Even a purchase
prospective would show wisdom.
In Ladies' and Children's Underwear we have something more than one cord. We herewith give you two or tliree
quotations which will largely govern:

of last year's Btyles. The prices ranged anywhere from $12,00 to $30.00 Ttie line hun
been bunched andjtnany sold at $,1.50. There
are a few lelt to be sacrificed. We consider
this one of lhe .greatest snaps ever placed

And Now About Dress Goods
We feel we hive been doing tor the past
three weeks lhe Dresa Goods trade of Cranbrook, and as we have u large consignment in
transit from Scotland we have'decided to as
early ns possible clean up our entire stock,
md will do so If prices couot for anything,

Another sign of advancement in
Cranbrook is ite establishment of a
green bouse by "Hutch" up at his
plan- on the llill. A representative
ot the Herald visited the green house
this week and was shown everything,
First there are two big beds of lettuce, fine large lettuce al that, which
will bt- ready [or sale almut the cad
uf the first week in November, Tho
rest of the green house is devoted to
roses, carnations, chrysanthemums,
aslors, and olher plants for winler,
cut flowers and also to a mlscell
ous collectlnn of home plants. He
has certainly some of the fm
plants ever brought into Kasl Kootenay. Early nexl spring a much
larger green totise will be built as he
sees already that the one he has is
not nearly large enough to supply tbe
demand. For next vear he will have
all kinds of bedding, cul plants and
ornamental trees and will Import all
his bulbs direct trom Holland. There
certainly isnn opening for a green
house in Cranbrook and il should
prove to be a paying proposition*

Miss Saunders in an Interview accorded (lie Herald gave Uie followlnfi
regarding ihe work of the assocla-
It- it Miss Saunders said: "Wc
ai ■ having ti many appi cations from
employers m ihe Northwest ami British Columbia thai we a,n trying to
organize more fully a movement to
bring employers aiid employees' to-
geilier. It must ite fully understood
th.it Great Britain cannot supply sufficient domes tlo servants of the ordinary class lo supply the west. It is,
therefore, apparent that, in order bo
meet the demand for domes-tie, help
in this country, the ordinary working
domestic servant cannot be procured!
Sho is either so lonely that she leaves
or gets married at once. Again the
ordinary domestic servant will not go
beyond Montreal or Toronto, where
she can command excellent wages and
live in, whal are to her, more congenial surroundings. Wc are, therefore, training girls of the mlucatod
class in domestic work and these girls
are willing to come to the west and
become domestic helps. The class
from wliich these girls are drawn are
those who have been used to doing
the greater part of the domestic work
In their own homes and who Imve bce^
trained at the Teater Training Home,
near Wellington, England. Mrs. V.
Hydo Haker has kindly consented to
represent the association as local
secretary for East Kootenav and she
will he glad to give any lad'v who desires lliis class of domestic help all

To Rev. Mr. and Mrs, W. G. IV. Fortune:—
It is wilb feelings of deep thankful
ness that we look back to-night oVCl
lhc period ol your ministry with us.
When you eame to t'ranbrook wi
wen* small in numbers and facing a
situation beset vvith many difficulties,
holh from a financial stiindpoinl and
from local conditions.
Hut during the six and a half years
you have labored wilh us, we haVU
not only built a manse, which would
tlu credit t., a much larger place, an>
jiaid ofi the debt on the old i-hi.iv
and manse property; but have als
built this new church, modern in de
sign and equipment, towards the cost
of which wi- have already raised about
ihtee thousand dollars.
And iu addition to this we have
now a strong congregation which is
not only meeting all ils own own liabilities "but stands anient, lhe most
liberal in llritish Columbia in con
tributing lo the missionary enter
prises of cur church al home and
While it gives us pleasure to review
lh.- history of ihese years, it would
ill become'us so to do, without
enrding to both of you the honor and
credit-due you for the important part
you have taken in bringing matter
to such a desirable issue.
We believe, sir, it is owing to your
splendid initiative and Stirling business ability, seconded by 'the sympathetic efforts and devoted wr.rk of
Mrs. Fortune lhat the outlook of
Knox church, Cranbrook, is so bright
and hopeful as it is at this day.
We regret very much that the lime
