crown their efforts, Few people realize
what it menus to act as .. member oi
a committee like that. The flrst ten
days the commit tee met three or
four times, and for the past Ave
weeks they have met every Tuesday
evening, and gone over the proposition in a business-like manner. There
have been very few absentees at any
of Uie meetings, and when this has
occurred It was unavoidable. On
Tuesday evening thc last regular
meeting was held, but one or more
special meetings will be called before
Monday. At the last meeting all
the detail preliminaries were arrang-
el fur and everything placed in good
shape for the big day. Judges were
appointed, the line of march for thc
parade fixed, order of the program
arranged, and many other details
given attention.
Reports from all over the district
indicate that the whole population
will flow into Cranbrook on Laboi
Day. Marysville and Kimberley will
be deserted. All the people of Bayard are coming. Word from O. A.

that the people of that prosperous
place are looking forward with pleasant anticipations to lbe enjoyment ol

D. J. Elmer, oi Moyie, was in
town making arrangements for the
fire brigade of that town to visit
here on Labor Day. He suggested
to the Herald man that it might  be
■ well for Cranhrook to have a box
ready to pack the hose reel race cups
Iin after the contest, but Cranbrook
cannot see it that way.
I The stores will be attractively decorated this'year, and there will be

Portsmouth, Aug. 29.—Peace between Russia and Japan was practically concluded at this morning's
resslon of tlie conference. In the
iiial struggle the Russians achieved
he victory. Foi the sake of peace,
.he Japanese, with a magnanimity
.onhy of their prosaic achievements

Jzar, and abandoned their demands,
not only for reimbursement tor the
ost of tlie waj:, but for the purchase
of the northern half of Sakhalin,

a division ol the island. The Japanese also withdrew articles IU and 11

A scene of the greatest excitement
followed the receipt 01 the news In
the lobby of the hotel Wentworth. A
bulletin was telephoned from the con-
i.'icnce room at the navy yard by
Mr. Sato, and like an eleotrlc thrill
Hooded through the room. There
were screams of joy. Men threw
tbelr hats aloft; women actually
wept, then there was a tush lor the
telegraph olliee and in uu instant tlie.
news was spreading to the remotest
quarters of tho globe.
AI. Witie, accompanied by Huron dc
Rosen, came to the hotel for luncheon. There was a wonderful demonstration upon their arrival. A great
crowd luui collected at the annex,
where thc Russians are quartered,
and when lheir autu drew near the
air was lorn jvith frantic cheers
Hats were thrown aloft. M. Wltte,
.is be stepped out of the motor car
seemed quite overcome. Too full tor
utiteraUOe, he could only gasp aud
shake the hands that were extended
to him. Baron Rosen was also equally moved, and received the congratulations of Ibe crowd ui silence.
For about live minutes the two plenipotentiaries were kept on the porch
listening to the praises oi tin* hotej

"What have you done'' How is it

"We pay not a cent of Indemnity,'!
he replied as he turned at the lauding
half way up the stairs. "We get
halt of Sakhalin. That is the agreement in a nutshell."
The Associated Press correspondent
accompanied M. Witte to his rooms
He had been quite overcome by the
great ovation he had received and the
intense strain he had been under. He
threw himself into his armchair, and
after a few minutes to "pull himself
together," he liegan to speak slowly
and deliberately, almost as if he were
talking to himself:
"It seems Incredible," he said. "1

Canadian flag procured for that purpose. This mountain was only climbed once before and then by two .Swiss

used a rope and often they had to

When Sir Conan Doyle created the

nature ol detective stones Doyle
made Ins detective a deductive genius
and the style aud nature of his adventures set the world a-talkiug.
thousands of people have grown to
regard Holmes as a personal friend,
and they would not willingly miss a
single one 01 his adventures.
Each story is complete in itself,
tlie lirst one appealing In the Week.y
Free Kress of August Iti, entitled
"The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle," and une each week thereafter.
To introduce the Weekly Free I'i ess
to new readers a special oltci is being

The forthcoming engagement in this
city of Margaret Neville, the celebrated English actress in Lord Lytton's beautiful play, "The Lady of
Lyons," will undoubtedly awaken a
great deal of interest among out
theatre goers, as not only has Miss
Neville a splendid metropolitan reputation, gained during five years as
a member of Sir Henry Irving's company, but the company surrounding
her is one of exceptional merit. The
engagement here will take place at
Wentworth hall, and will undoubtedly
draw a large audience.

Bouners Ferry Herald: The demand
tor lalior was never so great iu tin
.'iitire Northwest as at the presenl
time. In fact there never was
time before in which the supply did
not equal the demand, and usually
there has been a good sized surplus.
The surplus bas been mainly due tt
the fact of the tremendous immigration to the Northwest. But even
this does not supply present demands. The agricultural localities
are employing a vast army of laborers at present. Men have docked la
the wheat fields, attracted then* by
the good wages that farmers are
compelled to pay in order to get
their grain harvested. This has made
a shortage of labor in many occupations. Several logging camps in
Kootenay country have been compelled 10 closo down because Ihey could
not get men.
Here at Bonners Ferry lhe contractors constructing tlie Spokane A International could use 3,0fl0 more men
if they could he had. The work
dragging along very slowly. H will
probably taku all winter to finish
work that it was expected would bo
completed this fall.
One now camp has been recently established—that of McKeever & Daniels, who have the contract tor grading thc yards through Bonners Kerry.
They have the wofk between the
Kootenay Valley Railway prpsst/jg
and the bridge. Part oi lhu woik
is a very heavy fiti.
'The bridge contract was to have
been let last Saturday. It will be
over 000 feel Jong, besides the trestle
of some 500 feet Lu length, by whieh
tlie approach is made frum ihe weal.
The construction of the bridge will
require quite a force of mm, and the
work must necessarily start righl
Twoby Bros., Winters, Parsons A

Chapman and other contractors report their work going along nicely,
iXCOpt as noted —scarcity of
men. It is expected that men will
lie back from the harvest fields in
the latter part of October when the
amps will fill up.

C. M. Keep, who came down from
Windermere last week reports thai
district as looking up. While tho
larger mining properties are not,
lushing work, a greater number of
innll properties are shipping more

thi re should be a general renewal of
mining in this district.
There is much enquiry for agricultural land in tbe valley, and quite a
number of ranches are changing hands,
one ranch selling for $7,000 cash.
Thc C. P. R. lands are rapidly being
taken up, lhe last desirable tract on

by Mr. Copcll, of Nelson.
Ottawa, Aug. 25.—The C P. li.
has protested to tbe uoveriiiiiunt
against ilk- proposed location of the
i.inud Trunk Pacific line west oi
Winnipeg, claiming that ii parallels
us existing system lur a considerable
distance, and that for a long stretch
tne two roads will not be more than
i n miles apart.
Vour correspondent is assured that
I eiure the Cabinet approved a lew
weeks ago of the locat-ion plans foi
the U. i. P. from Portage la Prairie
_.T. milts northwestward to Touchwood Hills, the ministers made up
lheir minds that for a certain distance wcSLWaru irom Winiiipeg il was
impossible to avoid paralleling the
existing lines,
ihe question, therefore, is declared
io he practically seLlled, as far as the
government is concerned, and the ministers say it will not be reopened,
tiolh tin. C. P. R. and the ti. T, P.
main lines will run irom Winnipeg to
Portage la Prairie alongside each
oihu. Thence they diverge till at <i
point 275 miles further west they are
sixty miles irom one another. Further north, again, is the Canadian
.\orlbern system, pointing, like tht
Urand Trunk Pacific, for Edmonton.
Tbe 0. P. R, claims ihat lbe plans
ol ibe rival company as approved are
ut violation to the wishes oi parliament.

o'clock, C. M. Pratt, wbo was employed at the smelter, While on a
platform fixing a belt, slipped in some
mysterious manner and fell a. distance
of 2u feet, sustaining injuries that
caused bis death about two hours

for the injured man, but without
avail. The platform on which he was
working was perfectly safe, and the
men wbo were near are unable to

The remains were brought to Cranhrook on Tuesday's train and forwarded to Spokane the next day, accompanied hv Mr. Pelts, the architect of
