Thc citizens of Cranbrook have reached llie limit in school matlera- :••*,
They have pleaded and begged for relief, hut to no avail.     At tbe pres- ^
ent time there are 125 children   anxious  to  attend school, and their par- 2
cuts, permanent citizens of the town, are distracted over the lack of school ff
facilities. »
One school room mid one teacher for 125 pupils.    It is a shame and ff

The Me-Khg Banquet Was a Very
Great Success.
Many Friends Gathered to Show
Their Esteem of the Departing: Guests.
For they nro Jolly good fellows,
Wliieli nobotly can deny.
The banquet tendered Mr. William
Doble aud Dr, J. H. King on last Thurs
day night, as a farewell testimonial by
their numerous frieuds in Cranbrook,
was one the most successful events in-
the history of South East Kootenay.
At 10 o'clock tbe tables in the dining
room ol the Cranbrook hotel were
crowded, aud on the faces of all present
wns a look of satisfaction and pleasure-
not over the news of the departuie of
frieuds, but over the opportunity to
show their appreciation of the Stirling
qualities of the two guests of the evening. The committee in charge displayed
great wisdom in their selection of chairmen, for F. M. Medhurst and John
Hutchison, hy tbeir ready wit aud power
of speech, set the pace for the jollity of
the evening, and soou placed every one
at ease aud on their metal. Mr. Doble
sat on tbe right of Mr. Medhurst. and
Dr. King occupied a similar position
with Mr. Hutchison. When the guests
were all sealed, the heavily-laden tables
were attack-d wilh a zsst aud spirit that
betokened good stomachs aud reliable
appetites. When lhe viands had been
dispatched, cigars were passed around
uml those present settled back to enjoy
tbe feast of reason and good fellowship
lhat was to follow. Mr. Uutchisan proposed the toast of the Queen, coupled
With the name of W. S. Keay, ami
glasses were filled aud heartily drained
lo the health of lCugland's queeu, "a
queenly woman and a womanly queen."
The guests of lhe evening were proposed hy Mr. Medhurst, who spoke iu a
feeling maimer of Messrs. Doble and
King, deploiing their departure, but ex
pressing tbe wish that tbey might soon
return. In tbis, both Mr. Doble and
Mr. King replied, thanking tbeir friends
for such oner whelming evidences of
friendship. Mr. Doble Baid that he
hoped circumstances might bring him
again to South Kast Kootenay and Cranhrook, while Dr. King assured bis
friends that bis absence would be only
temporary and that be would return to
Cranbrook in a few weeks to resume his
work among those who had been so uniform iu their kindness to him.

Rails Vill Be Laid Into Kimberley By January 25.
The North Star branch is rapidly
nearing completion, ami at the pesei t
time there is a larg* ..force of men employed on tbe work. M. II. MacLeod,
engineer in charge, says that the steel

of this month, providing no accident occurs to interfere with the progress of tbe

The Fight al Ladysmith.
London, Jan, 9, 3:45 am.—After desperate fighting witb fierce hand-to-hand
conflicts, General White ami the besieged British garrison at Ladysmith
have beaten off the Boers. General
White sent a brief report of the battle
by heliograph signals lo General Buller,
and the latter transmitted it to the war
office. "The enemy was repulsed every
where wilh great loss," reported White,
'greatly exceeding that on my side,
which will he repotted as soon as the
"ists are completed."
So General White stills holds out, or
did so 60 hours ago, wheu the Boers,
ousted from iheir foothold inside the
works, suspended their assault at nightfall. England has taken heart. The
situation, however, is worse. The be-
leagured city must have expended large
amounts of ammunition which cannot
be replenished, and must have lost a
number of officers and men, which is
counterbalanced, so far as tbe garrison
is concerned, by the greater loss of the
Genernl White still needs relief, and
the difficulties confronting General Buller are as great as before. The former's
unadorned st-uteuces, as read and reread, suggest eloquently tbe peril in
which the town was for 14 hours, and
how barely able hia 9000 men were to
keep from being overcome. Tbe chief
concern for General White is in respect
of ammunition. Sixty-eight days ago,
at the beginning of the seige, his small
ammunition was vaguely described as
•plenty." His artillery then had 300
rounds per gun. Some of the batteries
have been in action frequently since
then, and all were probably engaged
Inst Saturday. His stock of shells, consequently, must be low, aud this will
make it difficult for General White to
co-operate in a movement by General
Fort Steele News.

Rev. Gordon Preaches a Feeling Sermon
on Ihe Subject of the Hour.
And Says thc Lord is With Those
Battling for Humanity and
In Knox Presbyterian church nn Sunday evening Inst, the Rev, I). I* Gordon,
B. A., preached a timely sermon on "A
Christian's Duty iu Time of War." lie
based his remarks on thc words of Matthew 10:37: "Think not thnt I em
come to send pence on earth; I came not
to send pence, hut n sword," and nlso
Luke 22:36: "He that hath no sword
let him sell his garment, and buy one."
The spenker referred to these clear
ud explicit statements of Christ as
showing that he foresaw that wnr was
not soon to pass from the earth; that so
long as sin ruled in human hearts, ni*,d
meu bound themselves together to
further their own ambitions and selfish
schemes, wnr was inevitable.
"But how are we to reconcile such
statements made by Christ with that
name—Prince of Peace—given him by
the enraptured prophet of old, who saw
His day aud rejoiced; a name given Him
by countless millions of loving hearts,
who year after year have sung His praises,
since the angels began that glad refrain,
"Glory to God In the Highest, and On
Earth, Peace, Good Will to Men." Is
He unworthy of that name? Does he
counsel war? Has Ilia mission failed?
Has He been defeated in the great work
which He come to do? Ah, no! But
he well foreknew that there would be
'wars and rumors of war,' that righteousness in its struggle with wickedness,
that light in overcoming darkness would
again aud again have to nppeal to the
sword. But, He olso knew that as the
God of heaven ruleth among the nations
of the earth, the evils of war would he
over-ruled for good: that war, witb all its
sickly horrors would, when waged for
the right, be instrumental in piomoting
peace, in advancing civilization and in
upbuilding humanity; yea, would he
made to redound to the glory of God.
Peace reigns in an ideal world, and it
is such n reign of peace lhat God desires
und offers this sin-cursed world, and
toward which His children nre ever
struggling. Nor can such a reigu of
pence he achieved without n struggle
It is folly for men, who live in an imperfect world, to think that they cau renounce war, as so many immigrants now
flocking inlo Canadn, think they can
They may fight no foreign foe, but assuredly the lime will come, yea. has
come, when others will have to fight for
them, if they are to enjoy peace,"
Here the speaker paused to point out
how great is the struggle required to
maintain peace within the individual,
withiu the home and within the nation,
aud then went on lo say, "If il be our
duty to undertake that struggle for tin-
securing of peace wilhin ourselves and
the maintenance of pea^e within our
homes and within our nation, Khali we
he denied the right to rise up in the
strength of God-fearing men aud defend
mnl maintain that peace against the
sword of the foreigner, and the selfish
schemes of ambitious demagogues? No.
Not we, for it is the inalienable right of
every son of Adam to defend his home,
his loved ones and hit. ctimtry by every
means that Giid has given him. When
these are attacked by a foreign foe, all
the highest instincts within you; yen,
the voice of God crletb unto you to rise
up and gird on your sword aud 'he lhat
hath no bwouI let him sell his garment
and buy one,* nnd go forth in the name'
of God lo defend your rights, willing to
die If btlt the flig of your country lioats j
over your grave and protects your loved
"A war, therefore, which is forced
upon us by a foreign foe, is moral, and
must be undertaken if we are worthy ut;
the names of men, A war like, I be-[
lieve, tlie bite American war, undertaken
iii behalf of suffering humanity, to free!
hundreds of thousands of helpless men
and women from the grasp of oppressors,
is justifiable before God. A war of self-
defense for the protection of life and
liberty, is lawful in   the sight of heaven.
"But you nre thinking of the war in
South Africa. Aie the British justified
iu prosecuting that war, you ask? Let
uh look at the facts. We must go back
to thc Napoleonic wars. Prance and
Holland in 1S06 made war on Gre.il
Britain. She retaliated by capturing
tlie Dutch colony In South Africa, which
was fully ceded to ibe Britisb crown by
the king of ilie Netherlands iu 1S15. In
a few years thousands of British immigrants begat* to pour into ibe colony.
Then began its more enlarged civilized
development. Nor was peace altogether
wauling in this mixed colony. The
majority of lhe Dutch or Boers settled
down and lived wilh tbeir British fellow
citizens tu freedom and a fair degree of
harmony. Where then, you ask, does
the South A ft ican question come in"'
What has caused this deplorable wai?
Apparently this: A number of thinners hated civilization as forced upon
tbem by the British government, partly,
it may be, for some of llie vices which
invariably at company that civilization,
but much more 'because tt interfered
with their vires, their practice of enslaving the natives, llieir disdain of arts and
industry, and their nomadic and half-
savage habits.' Hence they resolved to
escape from it. In 1S34, when the British government abolished slavery and
proffered payment for the slaves, bun
dreds of the Boers, rather than submit,
migrated northward. Thev crossed the
Vaal in 1836, drove out or enslaved the
natives and laid the foundation of lhe
Transvaal Republic. These Transvaal
Boers now number about 85,000) and it te
from them thai all the trouble of today
has arisen.
"Don't think they have enjoyed independence since lhe day lhey crossed
the Vaal. Again and again they have
had to appeal to Great Britain to save
tin m from the lawlessness which theii
own policy festered, and from ex ter 111 i
nation at the bands of enraged natives.
Who then has watched over the whole
South African Empire, including Ihe
Boer settlements, protected ii and gave
it all the advuutages of internal freedom
and self government? Who saved tle|
Transvaal in '75 when the Uoers were
broken and discouraged from the fierce
onslaught of the Zulus? Who has carried them through all tlle hnzaids ol
native warfare uplo the present? It ha*
been Great Britain,   She has protected
that republic. * * • She bMContributed
almost all ihe capital and energy which
has developed it and made il a great
state. When crippled by the Zulus slit*
restored it under the suzerainty of the
Queen. * * * In '^4, at the London convention, Paul Kruger promised practically equality of rights tn all while men
He theu, also, Invited capitalists and
miners to come into his country. Accepting that invitation they have flocked
in in such numbers as to outnumber the
Boers and threaten llieir political
supremacy. Then, forgetting his prom
tee made in London, nnd desiring to
maintain his despotic rule, Paul Kiuger
refused those new settlers any political
status or any right of representation in
their real legislative body. He euacted
facial laws against llum which are
nothing short if persecution. Nowbete
else in the wide world today ilo white
men live under such unjust and oppressive laws. They outnumber the Uoers
two to one, yet they have 110 real vote.
They are at the lueicy ol the law courts.
'They contribute nine-tenths 61 the revenue, yet they have nothing to say lu
the spending ol a single dollar of it.
Their   language  is proscribed  in  the
Cranbrook, B, C.
schools. Their industries are harassed
by absurd tariff* ami monopolies. Prac-
t cally they nre in n condition of serfdom. Nor b«ve the Boers administered
tbe revenue, thus wrung from British
subjects, iu the interests of the public
welfare. They have not sought to de-
velope tbe resources of their country.
But lhey have spent almost the whole of
that immense revenue 011 enriching
themselves and in preparing to drive
theBritiau from South Africa altogether,
wheu a favorable opportunity presented
itself.    •    *    -
"Were not those Britisb suhlects right
in clamoring fur representation (and au
equality of rights with tbe Boer aristocracy? Were uot Salisbury and Chamberlain justified In calling on President
Kruger to abide by his promis; given to
the London convention? Who can say
lhey were not? They have sought peace
b> every means within their power.
They have used the pen to weariness,
aud who a patience that the Boers have
mistaken for weakness, in the vain hope
of making wrongs right. But in the
midst of peace negotiations, ihat people
small in themselves, but inspired by tbe
jealous frowns of Europe, have rashly
commence! and are madlv waging an
aggressive war\
_ Mark you! they are not a litt.e people
lighting in despair for their homes and
their dear fatherland. These were never
in danger. These were never coveted.
* * * Tbey are tne bloody invaders of
British territory. Tbey have crossed
our borders and attacked our people all
unprepared and have arrogantly unfurled
their flag over British soil, and proclaimed it annexed to tbe Transvaal Republic."
Tbe remainder of tbe sermon sought
to justify tlie British in repelling the ii -
vaders, and pointed out the duty of all
citizens at such an awful crisis. "We
must not feign loyalty to the Britisb and
Secretly spread sympathy for the Boers.
We must 1* prepared if need be to gird
on our swords ano go forth to defend
the Umpire. Let us turn to lhat God
in whose name our fathers conquered.
Let us beseech him lo subdue our pride,
conqueror our enemies, and still for his
namesake, to exalt us among nations,
for good to man and for His own glory.
Let us in true humility and with Godly
fear arise to thc duly ofthe hour, strong
in the strength that comes from the consciousness of right and the conviction
that God is wiih us and that he will uphold us, even until that more glorious
future shall have dawned upon us, when
war shall be no more, when the Prince
of Peace shall have extended bis rule
over, not only darkest Africa, but unto
ihe ends of thc earth."
A British Columbia Cool inject.
A copy of the following resolntu n*
has been received from Mayor Garden
of Vancouver, by the Cranbrook board
of trade, and a note urging the co-operation of Cranbrook citizens:
Whereas, it has been distinctly shown
that ao efficient corps from British Col-
umbia could be raised fur active service
at once,
Be il therefore res-jlved, that the mayor
lie requested to send the following telegram lo tbe Honorable Mr. Scmliu, thi
premier of British Columbia:
' Considerable feeling that British
Columbia left nut second contingent
Prom one hundred lo five hundred good
riders and scouts can be raised on short
nolice. Will your government recommend this, assist in equipment and urge
Dominion government to co-operate and
accept service?"
liven if British Columbia is represented on the second contingent the provincial government be requested lo equip
and offer the services of a corps of
mounted scouts nf from  100 to 500 men.

the people who attended the services

the way of a discourse each night they
attended. Hut one evening the minister
had a severe cold, and it was almost impossible for him to get through the regular service. The sermon could be .omitted nnd It wns, and thc congregation departed with feelings of deep sympathy

She was not a member of the congregation, nnd when sho departed If thought

A Thrifty Wife.
A careful, prudent wife is a blessing to
■ man, especially to a poor man, but
some wives aro 11 little too careful. Lord
Kldon's wife was Boinewhat "near," as
they sny In I'nglnnd. His lurdsbip wns
very f.'iui of hunting aud retired to the
country for a few weeks toward thc end
of the season, where he was in the habit
of riding a littlo Welsh pony, for which
be gare R0 shillings. One morning tils
lordship, Intendlug to enjoy a few hours-
sport, ordered Bob to be saddled. Lady
Kldon objected, but as company was
present gave no reason. Iu a few moments, however, the scrvnot opened the
door and announced that Bob was ready.
"Why, bless me," exclaimed her lady*
■hip, "you can't ride him, Lord Kldon.
He hns no shoes on."
"Yes, my lndy; bo was shod this
week," Bald tbe servant.
"Shameful!" exclaimed her ladyship.
"How dared any one have him shod
without orders? John," she continued,
addressing her husband, "you know you
only rode tbo pony a few times last year.
■0 I hod the shoes taken off and havo
kept them ever since in my bureau. Tbey
are as good at new, and these people
bare shod him again. Wo shall bo ruined at this rata."

Now there's
ouly one reliable
remedy for restoring atrength and vitality
to weakened heartB and relieving all tho
distressing symptoms. It Is Milburn's
Heart and Nerve Pills.
The ensa of Mrs, A, Stratton, Froderlo-
ton, N.B., amply proves this. Here It
her statement:
"I suffered very much from en impoverished condition of the blood, coupled
with extreme nervousness. A dizzy sensation ou arising quickly or coming down
stairs, often troubled me, and my breath
was so short that I could not walk up
stairs. The least, exertion caused my
heart to flutter and palpitate violently
and I sometimes felt a smothering sem
sat ion on going to sleep.
I doctored bock and forth for my weakness, but I got no relief from any medicine
until I tried Milburn's Henrt and Nerve
Pills, and I ean say that they helped me
wonderfully. Sometimes my face and
arms would swell and puff, but all these
troubles npeodily yielded to the restoring
influence** of Milburn's Heart and Norvo
Pills, and I am now strong nnd well. I
did not use them long until I regained the
blessing of healthful, refreshing sleep and

Kootcuay & Algoma.
A general meeting of tll'? shareholders
of this company is called lor February 6
nt McVittie & Hutchison's ollice, wben
a siate me nt of the progress of the company will be made. The conservative
methods adopted by ihte organization
should recommend the shares to all
mining investors. Tbe most profitable
form of mining speculation is tbat of
developing tuere pfospwie. It .* UM
tbat mnny prospects, wheu developed,
ptove worthless, but wiih uiopor cate
ami judgment it la not difficult 10 distinguish the poor proposllious from the
goid, ones, after a few hundred dollars
have been expended, and by ntleellug
tbe best .showings for further expenditure, tbe average is certainly iu favor of
tbe profit side. The Kootenav & Mot

Diamond brills.
The use ofdiam nd drills in the search
fir ore Indies is now rvcngniztd as
economical under certain conditions, If
a large body of ledge m it ter shows no
paystreak end ii Is desirable lo prospect
fur it, the diamond dtill will probe the
ledge at depth, and culling it diagonally
will crosscut it, producing a core all
acro-s lhe ledge nt a cost of about $3 per
ftiot, where a shaft woirfd cost about fig
per foot. Or in lhe case of ground like
the Onion Jack hill, a drill Inning n series of holes radiitlng like a fan fiom a
common starling point would economical ty settle the vexing question ofthe
nature ol ihe ledges at depth. g

Woik at Ibis property isprogresBirg
steadily- Tbe shaft on the main ledge
is being sunk al the rale oi two feet pet
day, and some fine ore is being stacked
for shipment. An ore shed has been
erected at tlie siting on ihe railway, and
in a short time a carload of ore will be
shipped which will bring results that,
will gladden the hearts of ihe shareholders Tbere arc nearly twn bundled
sacks of ore now ready at the mine,
which will be forwarded as soon as the
sleighing is good. When the returns
aie received, look out for a jump in the
prices of stock.	
The North Star.
Neil McLcod Currau, manager of thc
North Star mining properties, has been
in lown the past few days Mr. Currau
ia a verv busy man at this lime, as all
bis energies are being put forth to get
the property in shape for shipping as
soon ns possible after the completion of
tbe North Star brancb. The tramway *'.-*
now ready for the cables, which are expected ut ally lime, the ore bins at the
track are completed, and everything will
be in shape fnr active shipment within o
shott lime. Under 1 lie supervision of
Mr Parker an Immense amount of ore
has been gotten oul, and Mr. Curran
savs Hint the amount to be shipped will
be n surprise lo the public,
The work on lhe North Star properly
has been ofa nature tbat makes mines.
With no talk and plenty of capital, Ibe
manager has gone ahead in a system 1 tic
manner until today, with a railway just
about completed to the property, every*
thing is reatly for extensive and continuous shipments tn the smelter. It is
such properties lhat will give to South
East Kooleiiay ilsjuat reputation,
Mack Hear.
Tbe sale nf lllack Hear shares nt three
antl a half cenls was closed on Tuesday
evening. McVittie St Hutchison report
the sale of forty thousand 111 the week
all tn residents nf Cranbronk, which
shows that our citizens know a good
thing ant) are willing 10 pay fur it. Tbe
work 011 Ibis property is being carrietl
on quietly and steadily, and about twn
feet a dny is being gained in tbe shaft.
We understand lhat the cbnrler fnr lhe
cnmpatiy has been issued, aud nu issue
of treasury shares will shortly be put on

Mining Notes.
Maurice Quatn and others are engaged
in prospecting a group of claims about
three miles south ofthe lown, on which
an immense ledge shows.
Harry Mellon says that tbey have
reached a depth nl 411 feet in tbe Horse
Shoe, the Nndnr canyon propel ly in
which L M. Vnndecar and himself arc
developing. Tbey have n 6 fool ledge,
and ibe ore is Improving constantly

One of the mousing articles in the
