The lulure nf the Town   Never So
Bright.
raillUTlON IS HAHBLV INCKtASINti
Business Continues Good  and the
Town Growing in Commercial
Importance*
HEX PERMANENCY POSITIVELY ASSURED
ltiWitmf»rw
The future of Cranbrook whs never
brighter than it is now. Although in
tbe paat, It has enjoyed prosperity, in
fact it haa always bi-en prosperous, yet
there never waa a time when the people
bad reason to feel so good over the
future of thc town, livery element of
prosperity in the district seems to be
abaplng in a manner that la bound to
contribute to the business and growth
of thii town. The coal strike is settled,
and although the coal areas are east of
Cranbrook some distance, yet the production of coal and coke In large quau-
tillca have had a most beneficial effect
upon Craubrook'it business. The rise
In lead and copper means the resmup-
tloa of metal mining on a larger scale
than ever throughout the district,
which In time will mean a vastly increased business in the territory tributary to Cranbrook. One of the great
resources of the district, tbat of lumbering, which haa added greatly to tbe
commercial importance of Cranbrook
during the past year, will be enlarged
during tbe neat year, and Cranbrcok,
aa the natural headquarters of so mu:b
of tblt business, must necessarily be
vastly benefited by the increase.
The man who has lived in Cranbrook
for the paat five years, and lhat is since
there has been any such town, bas had
reason to feel p eastd over the steady
growth of the place and the permanency
of the business. In fact, thia very per-
mancy haa been a source of surprise to
many outsiders. There never has been
a boom In Cranbrook, but there never
haa been a-time when her merchants did
not stand well with the banks and
wholesale bouses, Tbe town has been
fortunate in ber merchants aa a whole
They are wide awake, enterprising and
good buainess men, and by their eme-
ful methods bave built up for them-
aelvea and ihe town a most enviable
reputation ( t integrity and pr-nnplnes*.
Tbey have made Cranbrook tbe central
market place of the district, simply because tbey bave kept pace witb the
growth of the country and tbe demands
of tbe people. It is nothing to see the
different stores filling orders from
various tows in the district on any day.
and aa the business of the district increases there is a corresponding increase
In thia trade.
At the present time, although each
summer hna seen a great increase In the
number of residences, It is Impossible to
find a vacant bouse In tbe town. There
is a demand for every house in the town
at a good rental, and many families are
living the best that tbey can in cramped
quarters in one or two rooms, until
there are more bouses built, Tbe Hertild
will venture the prediction that fifteen
or twenty good cottages cuuld be rented
in thia town In forlyeight hours at this
time. The townsite office since the
opening of spring, haa been beaetged by
people looking for lots upon which to
build, and for lb** past fif-een days tbe
sales have been very brisk.
Five years ago, when The Herald was
first published, Its editor gave several
reasons why Cranbrook was to become
nn important center, and be feels highly
gratified that tbe reasons given nt that
lime hold good now, and have been
verified year after yenr since the town
waa started.
Today Cranbrook has close to 2,000
people, and no oue Idle. It is tbe railroad, milling and commercial center of
ihe district, and It has more fine-bouses
than can be found In all other towns in
tbe district combined. Tbls Is not
speaking dispargingly of the other
towns, as they bave grown and prospered, but shows that. Cranbrook has been
exceptionally fortunate,
Cranbrook is boand. to continue to
grow; Her location, her great start,
theclSFfl ot hercitiiens, the growth in
her rail-way Interests, and the many ad-
van lie a she enjoy**, as the headquarters
for different lines of business and companies doing business in all parts ot the
district, makes her future exceedirgly
b tght, and gives confidence, to those
who bave their money Invested here.
Surveyldi Tinker Units.
. Tie hew order of the government making tt obligatory on the part of applicants and holders of timber limits to
have them surveyed before licenses are
granted haa catired a great deal of comment in thia district. Those Interested
In the lumber companies seem to favor
the new conditions, since It will confine
timber Staking as a rule to legitimate
lumbermen and tend to atop timber
speculating. Naturally the surveyors
will be pleased since It will mean an immense amotion! of business for them.

MEET THE GOVERNMENT
rtlcle nn mining in last WQflt s Herald,
by J. L. Parker, manager of the North
Star mint*, wns badly mutilated bv a few
errors tbat were caused by blurred
manuscript due lo taking 3 copy Tlie
tractions ait* made in thin issue, which
ran Ik* preserved with ill** article, for
tbe benellt ol tbtioe who have put it
usltle for its Taint in the important dala
gathered,
Klmberley, 11. C. April 4U1, 1903
SdltOt lletalil: I'i the article ol mine
in your last issue on tlie "Resources ol
South Bait Kuoleuuy," prellxiug which
I mentioned, that the British Km pi re
had produced over (1,000,000,000 of
minerals, in tyui, in the seven principal
stilistaticen, yoti make s heading to the
nrlicle ol \uur own, part'Of *• liicb reads
that the llritisli Km pi re siinds at the
front, a phrase which might |m taken to
mean tbat sbe was largest producer of
minerals. As tbe United States holds
tbis position, I presume tbat you meant
to convey the idea, that she stood among
the leading nations In respect to output.
Some errors bave also crept in the
article Itself, due your transmitting uiy
notes differently than I wrote them, aa
follows:
t In the totals for 1901 for Canadian
minerals you have printed 1900.
2 In the following sentence, you have
changed tbe sense by placiug the word
restored instead of restricted. The correct sentence is as follows:
'During iyoi the lead trust restricted
the output, but as this restriction in 1902
was taken off, the year's output will bave
greatly exceeded these figures." This
sentence is in speaking of the Coeur
d'Alene district, of Idaho.
3 You make me state that the price
to the American mine owners for tbeir
lead in 1901 was three and a half per
cent. Tbis was written by me 3 1 2
cents per pound.
4 Again in tbe calculations of the
values of the ores of the different
countries, you have placed 725 pounds
for 720 pounds in the calculation of tbe
American ores, aul have totally omitted
tbe amount I gave, viz $25 20, The
correct sentence is as follows:
"United Stales mine owners 40 per
cent lead ores less 10 per cent 720
pounds at 3 1 2 cents per pound $25 20,
"Canadian mine owners 40 per cent
lead ores less 10 per cent 720 pounds at
1.3 cents per pound $9 36."
5 Another error is where you have
the word prosperity instead of properties    The correct sentence Is as follows:
'The lead contents in the former more
than pay for all tbe freight and treatment charges, whilst our ores do not
commence to pay them, and tbe difference of S15 ,\| per ton in favor of the
mining properties, in tbe United States,
ai against Canadian lead properties on
ores of equal grades, explains why prosperity rules in the Coeur d'Alene district
and adversity lias its sway iti the S union
and Kast Kootenay districts of British
Columbia."
6 Another error is In substituting the
woid decreased for increased, in the
sentence referring to the effects of tbe
increased duties on the manufactured
lead products. Yuur error alters and
nullifies tbe whole deductions of my
argument. Tbe correct sentence Is as
follows:
"And we hold that wiih home refineries and corroding works established,
(these have been promised if tbe duties
are Increased) this price would not be
Increased by the additional new duties
as is asserted bv some,"
The printer's devil baa been evidently
busily engaged in thiowing the type
around more than usual,I would imagine,
hut hnd I been able to have seen tbe
proof you got out, these would have
been checked. Our roads however from
the mine were impassible, and I am
sure you did tbe best you could wltb the
manuscript. I must ask you however

Victoria, April 4.—A deputation consisting of James Ryan and W. K. Gurd,
of Cranbrook, |. G. Hillings, of Nelson,
I). V. Molt, of Fernie and C. P, Mott,
ol Revelstoke, Interviewed the government this afternoon, representing tbe
Eist Kootenay lumber manufacturers,
Merrss. Shannon and MacDotij-all, of
Vancouver, accompanying them and
supporting tbe representations made.
Suggested amendments respecting
timber licenses was their subject nnd the
following recommendations were made
in behalf of the Mountain Lumber Manufacturer's Association.
1. That licenses be renewable at option of holders from year to year,
2. That license holders must cut one
thousand feet B. M. dally for every
license held for eight months in the
year and that the license may take up
any mini ber of licenses,
3. Licenses, including existent lieen-
ses, to be transferable.
4. Whereas timber east of the Cascades is not as heavy as in the west no
Increase should be made In the fee for
licenses issued over lands east of the
Cascades.
We approve of the regulation requiring surveys but would suggest in view of
the difficulty to be met In having snr
veya made, reasonable extensions be allowed before cancellation of licenses for
failure to survey.
These points were verbabtly elaborated and the government promised consid

from Vancouvgr will discuss the same

paid 011 this, leaving a balance of $225.
It was therefore necessary that something should be done to par off their
debt. He also stated that Ihere were
no ladders, which are an absolute necessity in case ot fire. There were a number of other things required which would
have lo be purchased as soon as softl-
cteut funds could be raised. Alter a

Tbe Pirates ol Psnzance.
Mr. William Mackenzie haa decided to
produce Gilbert & Sullivan's ever popular comic opera, tbe Pirates of Penzance,
on the 5th, 6th and 7th of May, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday,
Kehearsala have been In full swing
since early In February and last Monday
the whole opera was handled in such a
thorough manner by the amateurs of
Cranbrook as to leave no doubt of a
great triumph for the musical portion of
the committee. Solos and choruses tbat
were at fi.st apparently difficult, are
now given with an ease and freedom
tbat augurs well for an .artistic and decided success.
The caste for the Initial performance
will Include Miss Kate Peverelli as "Mabel;" Miss Lily Piniils, "Edith;" Miss
M. Ilarley, "Kale;" Miss M. R. Moffat,
'Isabel;" Mr. George Porbes, "The Fi*
rate King;" Mr. Norman Hill, "Major-
General Stanley;" Mr. S. 1*). Bolton,
"Samuel, the Lieutenant;" Mr. J. W.
Robinson, "Sergeant of Police," and
Mrs. Mackenzie as the pirate apprentice
"Fredric." The chorus will accompany
tbe singers. Tbe stage will be enlarged
by the addition of fifteen feet aud tbe
floor ofthe hall is to be raised so as to
enable all lo obtain a complete view of
tbe elaborate costumes and scenery. It
seldom falls to the lot of a town the size
of Cranbrook to produce a work of such
magttude and it Is pleasing to note tbat
the musical talent of Cranbrook have
surmounted all the difficulties and will
ere long give the public ample proof of
their more than ordinary ability. Pull
particulars will appear in posters and
programs. Mr. Mackenzie is training
a second caste of principals whose names
will be announced tn a future issue,
Crushed 1b an Elevator.
J P. James, for a year or more cook
at tbe Passmore boardiug bouse in Ibis
town, went to Spokane where he secured a situation as operator of an elevator
Tbe following from the Spokesman Review tells ofthe yonng mans misfortune:
In an accident in the elevator of the
Blalock building yesterday morning Jasper P. James, the elevator lender, bad
hia leg broken in three places and received several minor injuries. James,
who is a cripple, started to leave the
elevator on the ground floor, when it
started up, jimming his crippled leg
against the shaft, breaking and lacerating the flesh badly. He maintained
sufficient presence of mind to grasp the
lever and reverse tt, which be succeeded
iu doing at tbe third Boor. James was
taken to the Sacred Heart hospital,
where his injuries were attended to. In
speaking of the affair James said;
"Tbe affair was purely au accident.
The elevator had been inspected a few
minutes before it occurred. In leaving
the car, being somewhat awkward on
account of my crippled leg, the lever
must have been moved by my coat
catching it."
James showed great heroism throughout, maintain^ bis presence of mind,
though suffering exquisite torture.
It Is evident that C, K Smith, metn-
l*r for South Etast Kootenay is going to
vote witb tbe government under certain
conditions. Thi Rowland Miner's
Victoria correspondent says Mr, Smith
gave him au Intel view which iletiniiely
fiises bis position iu the house. Mr-
Smith states positively that as the government is practically a new one he is
not prepared »o visit the sins of the former one nn its head. Ha dislikes taking ihe position of an alleged independent member, but Says Premier Prior baa
agreed to drop the Canadian Northern
proposition, one matter upon which Mr
Smith fought bim strenuously last session. If Col. Prior thereby breaks Faith
with Victoria, lie says let Victor a reckon with him. He admits ttiat he has
already aeen the government and received this assu'ance from Col. Prior.
Io regard to tbe Bouth Bast Koolenay
laud matter, Mr. Smith says he also has
satisfactory assurances. He would
rather see those lands po to individual
prospecter*. than to the C. I'. R., and the
government has agreed lhat the latter
will not get them. At the same time
Mr. Stn itn prefers an arrangement
whereby a strong syndicate would obtain a lease of tbe lands and work them,
the government retaining ownership
and enforcing reasonable restrictions,
ont of which would be that in case of a
dispute like tbat at Fernie a government
receiver would take over tbe property
and continue operations till a settlement
was reached.
Another reason for Mr Smith supporting tbe administration, if they will not
introduce vicious legislation, is because the next election must be on
party lines, and that an appeal to tbe
country at the present time would result
In confusion worse than tbe present
composition of tbe house. He is prepared to keep ibe government in power
on these conditions until matters are on
a more satisfactory busis for an appeal
to the country.
NEW POSTAL ROUTE
Sacred Concert
Tomorrow (Good Friday) evening tbe
Mackenzles wilt give tbeir last concert
io Cranbrook. These talented entertainers have won sucb popularity here
by their sterling merits and the general
excellence of ihe programs tbey bave
given from time to time that a fnll house
and an enthusiastic reception can be

The Bivouac Fire," or "God of Peace
and God of Battles," and sing "Angels
Ever Bright and Fair." Mr. Mackenzie
will sing "Tbe Lost Chord," "Behold I
Stand at the Door," "Rocked in the Cradle uf the Deep" and "Pro Peccntes,"
Mrs, W T. Reld, Mtss Edith Magee,
Mr. G. Forbes and Mr. Smith will assist
witb solos and these numbers will be

Diaferoai Water.
The Herald desires again to emphasize
the fact tbat those who use tbe water
from wells on the flat are endangering
tbelr Uvea. The Herald man went to
Dr. Green this week and asked lhe
question direct, if he considered tbe
water from these wells dangerous. His
answer was direct and emphatic.
"Most assuredly. Tbe water will
cause typhlod, and never should be used
for domestic purposes."
These wells are surface wells, and the
gravel make up of tbe ground permits
all the surface filth to he carried Into
Ihe wells. The water looks clear, but
contains the poisonious germs tbat will
cause an epidemic If used. Tbis Is tbe
dangerous time of tbe year, and the
authorities should see tbat those so
ignorant as to persist in using tbe water
should be prevented by closing up the
wells.        	
Oold From East Kootenny.
P. C. Malpas, manager of the Canadian branch of the Canadian Bank of
Commerce, has received a com mission
from tbe Dominion government to

postal business of that section is with

FERNIE NEWS
Front The fertile Free I'ress,
H. Bentley, has sold his general mercantile   business at  Lethbridge to the
Bentley Company Limited.
Mr. C, J, Oigby met with a very unfortunate accident yesterday a. m. He
waa working the jointer machine at
Coward -St Son's factory and lu some
unaccountable manner his right hand
waa caught In the narrow grove by tbe
revolving knives. Tne thum-i was cut
off at the Hrst joint and the first and
third Angers at the second joint. The
second finger waa saved.
Messrs. Hubertson and Bentley, who
made a flying trip over the pralris In
the Interests ol the proposed legislation
for the silver lead industry In ihe
Kootenays were very successful. Mr.
Robertson arrived ln Fernie yesterday
and Mr. Bentley today, the latter having remained over a day at Lethbridge.
These gentlemen carried convincing
argument with them and the Hoards of
Trade ln every town they visited unanimously passed resolutions supporting
their views. Tbe following towns were
called at; Macleod, Olds, Innlsfall, We-
taskawin LoDuc. Strathcoua. Edmonton
Iteglna and Moose Jaw. Resolutions
had already heen sent ln from Calgary,
and one or two ether points. Mr.
Robertson also took a run down to
Winnipeg where he did some good missionary work In the silver lead cause.
They report times as being eitra good
through out the district they travelled,
the only serious drawback being the
difficulty of getting the people together
owing to them being so very busy. The
resolutions were wired to Ottawa as
they went along and afterwards mailed.
Undoubtedly Messrs. Robertson and
Bentley have done goou work for the
cause ou which they were sent.
It la understood the Company Intend
building another row of double bouses
to take the place of the original log
buildings neit to Michel creek. If the
old buildings are removed It will be the
final obliteration of old Sparwood and
will wonderfully Improve the appearance of Michel. The town has wonderfully Increased tn population and we expect to see Its present population of a
good thousand lnci eased  at  least  tllty
per cent before 1.104.

The wives and daughters of the business men should take hold of tbe fire
man's dance and make it a success
socially, and financially. It means
much. Why nol organize a lady's brigade to sell tickets, divide up tbe town
and make a clean sweep? If tbe ladies
of Cranbrook don'l help out on this pro
position they are neglecting their own
Interests,

spent several days this week at Cowley,

had been on tbe battle fields of South
Africa, and feeling good over their outing. _ i
