The Herald job Printing
 MMIMMtO
Victor!*, B. C, April 23 —Editors
Herald: Ileie I nui, back in Hrltiab Co
lutuhia for a few days, having luken ad
I vantage of llie opportunity to visit the
capital of the Province ju which I have
lived for the paat few years. I lefl Seattle last Saturday uight,, and after •
pleasant trip of six hours landed at tbe
Capital City, at an early hour Sunday
morning. After breakfast I hunted up
William Doble and George Shier, and
afterward found Ned Bray and George
Watson. We spent the day viewing the
sights of the city, and when night came
I wu free to confess that tbe little tramp
Bert Beattie and I took after making
kindling wood of Geary's buggy wax
mild indeed. Walk) Why, those men
took me mile afler mile, and yet I was
amicus to keep oa going, for it was one
grand panorama of beautiful visions.
Such grand drives, such magnificent
homes surrounded by well-kept lawns,
brilliant with beautiful flowers and neatly trimmed shrubbery presented a
cession of pleasing scenes tbat appealed
strongly to my love of the beautiful,
Victoria, on tbe whole, is a most in*
teresting place. To the tourist and occasional visitor there Is always something of interest. The bay, the naval
station at Kiquimault, tbe Parliament
buildings, the beautiful homes, the wonderful park—all combine to make the
visit of a stranger one prolonged dream
of joy and pleasure.
Today we paid a visit to the Parliamentary buildings and the various departments. The museum is one of the
best I have ever teen, the fruit and agricultural department causes the uninitiated to marvel at the resources of British Columbia. The printing department
is operated on a strictly practical business basis; the library Is filled with interesting reading and presided over by
courteous employes. There I found tbe
East Kootenay papete and spent au half
hour perusing the columns of tbe Moyie
Leader, Fernie Free Press and the dear
old Herald. Say, boys; they made uie
homesick, and yet they made me feel
good.
The parliament building, an architectural pile of marvelous beauty, is a credit to tbe province and the builders, especially when it is taken into consideration that it cost less than $1,000,000. It
is probahly llie cheapest building of the
kind on the American continent, alt due
to a feature that is rare indeed these days
—honesty iu construction, Tbere were
no steals or scandals in the wake of the
work, and It stands as an immortal monument to the integrity of the people
who voted the appropriations and titose
who had ibe work iu hand.
I visited the assembly chamber, but of
course saw nothing but empty chairs
The front desk on tbe opposition side is
tbe one occupied by Col. Baker, and as I
dropped wearily into the soft, cushioned
chair, I wondered to myself, " Who will
occupy this chair next?" and there arose
in my heart oue burning hope and
dealre.snd tbat was that whoever it might
be, he would be one who would work for
tbe dislrict of Hsst Kootenay as a whole
thereby insuring a more prosperous Fort
Steele, a more prosperous Moyie, a more
prosperous Fernie, a more prosperous
Cranbrook, Kimberley and Wardner. It
is such a man that -South Kast Kootenay
needs st this lime—not one bound up In
personal interests in any one locality
with mind so narrow and judgment so
warped that it would be impossible for
bim to truly and honestly represent Ihe
best interests of tbe district as a whole-
Much will depend upon South But Kootenay's next representative so far u that
district is concerned, and the people
should never forget that the prosperity
end growth of each depends upon
the prosperity and growth of tbe
district. One town cau never be built
up by tearing down another, and the
member wbo wonld attempt euch work
will bring shame upon himself, disgrace
to his own town, and losa of prestige to
the district.
This Bfteruoon we visited the naval
yard at E-quinmuH, where tha e is much
to be seen, We visited a British man of-
war th.it had just arrived, and were
shown over the vessel by a courteous
member ofrthe crew. There were guns
there that can shoot faster than Fred
Pieper can talk, and some big boys that
could toss a 13-pouud shell from Gran-
brook iuto Bobby Galbraith'a yard at
Port Steele. We saw a dry dock that
would take in Mr. Watt's three story
building aud still leave room for the
Cosmopolitan and Craubrook hotels.
Tbe shore batteries on the rocky points
at the entrance to the harbor are ample
protection to what Is considered one of
tbe best land locked harbors in the
woild. Ob, by the way, we also visited
a torpedo boat, 140 feet long, ami having
  '-' '- '"     ' " with
the ruu from Victoria to Vancouver, b
distance of 80 miles* In two and one-ball
bear*.
There is trouble arising here and at
•very town along the cout in British
Columbia and tbe United States, due to
the unprecedented arrival of Japanese
Since 1 have been here, only two days,
there have been about 3000 landed here,
snd every Pacific coast port is being
flooded in tbe same way. If this wort
continues, lu 10 years' time while people will be working for the Japs. They
are a most dangerous enemy to the white
working niuti - Uu-y are intelligent, quick
to adapt themselves to the ways of 1 hv
country, and so cheap that they will
starve out Chinamen. Every labor organization iu North America should be
up and ado ing now, before il is too late.
V-.<ur.-i truly,
F. ti. Simpson.

Pointers (or the Ladles is lo How to Prepare
Toothsome Vliodi,
The Herald does not propose lo be be
hind any of tbe other large Hnd metropolitan newspapers in furnishing instructive as well as newsy reading.
It is said to be an unfortunate fact
that many wives can not get up an up-
to-date palatable dinner—oue thnt will
make their husbands look forward to the
approaching dinner hour with pleasure.
Consequently a culinary editor bas been
added to the Herald staff, and from time
to time he will give short instructions as
lo how to prepare well-known delicacies
In the most approved style, beginning
with " How to Cook an Oyster."
Great care should be taken in picking
your oyster. It is belter picked before it
is loo ripe; yet many seriously object to
oysters that bave a tendency to greenness—if too green; a line -should be
drawn at tbe extremes either way. Hav
ing picked your oyster, being careful
lhat no "pin" feathera are left, you will
next proceed to draw it; It's best not to
draw it on tbe floor, but lay it carefully
ou • clean kitchen table; if the oyster is
alive turn ita bead away during tbe ensuing operation, as oyaters are animals
of tender feelings and bave been known
to shed briny tears or cast reproachful
glances at the cook at such times.
Having placed your oyster in position
with delicacy and a sharp knife extract
internal improvements, being careful not
to fracture any of Its ribs. Some prefer
an oyster baked with Its head unsevered;
In snch a case you will take a blacksmith's pincers and pull Its teeth before
putting in the oven as the beat is liable
to loosen up tbe meat end allow the
teeth to drop down Its throat and thereafter be swallowed by the epicure; this
would be followed hy a severe attack cf
indigestion.
Some prefer after drawing the oyster,
instead of stuffing it with a compound
of bread crumbs and savory herbs, to
611 it with old Scotch, sewing it up and
allowing the liquid to boil and evaporate
through the cooking meat; in this case
roast in a slow oven so that the liquor
does not go to the oyster's bead and
make it behave badly when placed on
the dining table. It might be suggested, though, that some husbands prefer
to take their Scotch In a glass aud eat
tbe oyster afterward, allowing nature to
mix au oyater cocktail trom lhe material
white digestion is in process.
Turn the oyster frequently while roasting, so as to cook evenly, and see that
the legs are kept flat in the pan. Slice
when serving by cutting belweeu the
ribs and breaking from the backbone. If
it should not be consumed at dinner tbe
remainder will make delicious sandwiches for lunch next day.

BISINESS   MEN   HAVE   ORGANIZED
TWO NEW DISCOVERIES
One Is at Palmer Monataia and the Other
at Sirdar, and Both are Spleadld
Looking Properties.
-Trick" Bicycle RJdlaf.
Archie Currie is one of the most obliging and genial of Cranbrook's many
swells; he is so very generous and
obliging that he'd almost break bis neck
to do a favor for anyone, and that's what
he narrowly escaped doing last Sunday
Two ladies were approaching as he was
bicycling toward tbe base-halt grounds
on that dny, One of them was wheeling
a comparatively uew representative of
the rising generation, and as Archie
drew near he thought he'd do a little
something to smnse the baby as he was
passing and make It think after all that
tbia is not altogether a world composed
of sin and sorrow. So be undertook to
do the "front wheel spinning set" as he
glided by.
He got It started on the spin all right,
but it stopped too quick, and loi Archie
tu'iied a half somersault, landing fairly
on his back, the bicycle and he reversing
their positions wilh both wheels spinning in the air. He picked himself up
as quickly aa possible, quietly told tbe
baby not to be frightened, as tbat was
only a little trick that he often performed
for his own amusement.
New Discoveries.
At the junction of the Nelson & Bed
lington and C. P. R. roads, six miles
from Sirdar, there has recently been
made a new discovery which may prove
of much importance, as already a very
fine showing has been made. Samples
received at this office show some galena
and look as though it might be accompanied with considerable silver and some
gold. Indications are also favorable for
copper. The Night Hawk, from whence
tbe samples were received bad last week
an open cut, making a tunnel face, and
at that time eight feet of a tunnel. Tbe
lead is 20 inches wide, highly mineralized witb oxidized iron and considerable
galena. That the lead is a strong one
is evidenced hy the -fact that it can be
traced on the surface for a distance of
several hundred feet, livery shot put in
tbe face of the tunnel results lu an improvement of the showing. If It makes
a mine, the ore can be loaded- from the
dump into the cars. Qua Beckett aud
others are the fortunate owners. An adjoining claim,-owned by the same parties, and known as the Far Down, Is also
being developed, and shows good values
iu silver and copper from the grass roots.

Improvements la tbe Craabrook.
Uncle Jim la looking out for the comfort of his patrons, hence, what was the
old bar room In by-gone days, and for
some lime past a portion of the dining
room, is being converted into a part of
the present office. This will give a side
entrance, enabling ladies lo pass In and
out without having to go through the
office. It will also permit ofthe removal of the preseut stairway leading up
from the ollice, aud leave a large, commodious office and reading room.   The

five miles southwest of tbe town is show
ing two feet of-solid galena ore; Ibe

The Blackbawk claim, on Palmer
mountain, is showing some remarkably
rich looking auriferous quart z in the face
of the tunnel being driven by William
Campbell; development work tells In tbe
long run, as is once more proved by .the
showing of ore uow on this ledge.
Mr. Harry Pollard, of Goatfell, says a
party of Austriaus, who have beeu prospecting near bla place have a 7 foot ledge
showing fu ore in copper and gold.
William Pollard himself baa a Sue prospect lu xinc-blende ore, carrying silver
values.
A. W. McVittie recently made a trip
to the mountains near Bull river under
tne guidance of Pierre, a Kootenay Iu-
dian ol mining fame, and staked out a
claim on a large, well defined ledge of
rich-looking copper-bearing quartz.
Mr. John Hamilton, who owns witb
McVittie & Hutchison the largest quarts
showing In the district,.brought some of
tbe ore to towu a few dars ago; an as*
say is being made for gold. Work will
be doue ou the property early this summer; It is ouly five miles from towu.
The Bull River Mining and Milling
company of Spokane, Wash., has undertaken to work W. M. Violet's property
on Bull river, which consists of a group
of 14 claims showing large bodies of
low-grade copper ore and some high
grade in smsll ledges. Tbis property is
likely to become one of tbe largest mines
in British Columbia, in due time, though
15 miles from the railway. Don McKay
has an excellent showing further up the
river, which will be worked with vim
this year. _  |

Mr. and Mrs. J. H. Taylor aud son departed for Montreal Wednesday. Mr.
Taylor has been the chief dispatcher ai
Cranbrook for the C. P. R. during tbe
past few months and goes to Montreal in
the company's service.
The pleasant feature connected with
tbeir departure was tbe presentation to
Mrs. Taylor of a handsome silver souvenir by the members of the Presbyterian church.
Mr. and Mrs. Taylor leave many warm
friends in Cranbrook who sinceiely regret lhat the C. P. R, found occasion
to remove Mr. Taylor to a greater field
of usefulness, but the regrets ate tempered by the hope and belief that tbe
change is in the nature of a promotion
lhat will advance their worldly interests.

Tiie Humid v% ill comment only on one
feature connected w, h Mr M.trlin's
meeting.
The leftlnre alluded lo is Mi Martin's
reply to Mi. Ueltch'S answer tti S0II1Q
remniks mnde by the foiinet renardlng
allegations made concerning Mi Ms -
tin's relations to lhe C. V, K when lie
canto to Hit** province, li seems that
Manitoba papers in com men linn <"i
Mr. Martin's departure snid that he
came here in lhe employ ol the C, 1'. K.
and had been paid $io,ooa for so doing.
Mr. Leitch -acknowledged rrom lhe platform that he had repealed the newspaper storieB here, and had also stated that
hecould not understand Mr Martin's
motive ror fighting lhe C I*. R. an I at
the same lime accepting large retainers
from lhat company. Mr. Leitch, aho*
lining a gentleman, turned to Mr. Martin and stated ilia manly way llial if his
information was untrue, he was ready,
then and there to apologise for having
given it circulation, aud ihen look hia
sent.
Mr. Martin in replying evidently g<*l a
little warm; he acknowledged llie accit*
H-itiou with the tpialificiilinu that ttie
-sum waa much linger. Then he went
on in a mild—for him—tirade against
Mr. Leitch for having the audacity to
question liis private business transactions
while he was in no wny representing the
government-, stating that it was no one's
liusin ss what lie done in private life.
Right there Mr. Martin made a serious
mistake regarding his own political interests. He demonstrated lhat he is
neither a Bhrewd politlc-an nor possessed
of statesmanlike qualities. lie lost tlie
opportunity of his lif.- for winning votes
in South Mast Kootenay. If he had received and treated Mr. Leach's statement in llie saint- gentlemanly and generous maimer in which it was tendered,
it would have scored to the premier's
good.
Mr. Martin was also greatly in error
when he made the broad statement that
il was nobody's business what his private
transactions were when not in ofiice or a
candidate for ofllce. If never in public
life, llie acts of any man aru amenable to
public opinion as well as tlie law. Were
it not so anarchy or barbarism would ensue.
When a man seeks lhe prefer tue lit by
his fellow* citizens, for office—especially
n high and responsible position—lhe record ot his whole life, so far as capability,
integrity and general character is con*
cerned becomes public properly, No
one knows tbis better than Mr. Martiu
himself, who not long ago metaphorically paralyzed his opponent by referring
to a transaction in which that gentleman
had been concerned in the United States
some years ago. Again, Mr. Martin could
with just (is much propriety say lhat
a man or company engaged itl mercantile
operations have no light Lo enquire into
the antecedents of an applicant for a responsible position in their service-
Mr. Martin, you made a mistake.

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
Much news of a local nature bas been
unavoidably omitted tins week, so those
who miss ileitis lhey may be expec'tng
will know how to account for their ab-
seuce. 	
It was lhe intention of the Herald to
have devoted a column lo interviews witb
prominent citlxenB of thc two grenl political patties regarding iheiropinions of
Mr. Martin's platform and address; the
plan had to he abandoned- however,
innn llie fact that so few cared to talk
for puhlicat'on.
The reported contemplated transfer-
anceof 1*', M. Medhurst, C. P. R. agent
in Craubrook is, it is hoped, without
foundation in fact    it is only necesrary
lo state that the mere rumor brought out
a vigorous protest from the citizens of
Cranbrook irrespective of religlouB of
political belief.

For hor thoughts are ef th'* lone ago,
When the old limine rang with mirth nnd

Hume wander now 'noatli an alien sky,
And some will como buck aa morc-no
■ ne.ro 1 among
men. Tin* brnill begins its training
it nu earlier nge than ever before, niid
us our modem Intelligence is subjected
to greater activity lhe brain develops
accordingly. Consequently the size of
thc head expands. This is thoroughly
consist ent wilh Darwin's theory of evolution, as well as with every principle
of science that 1 know of.
"Hueh men as Caesar aud Shakespeare woro prodigies, nml must he considered upart by their very genius,
While admitting that the size of thc
brain among ancients must have been
mueh less than thai of a mnn living
to-day, I am forced lo this double conclusion, with respect to -such ti mun us
Caesar—namely, that what brain ho
had must have been of lhe hlglicust possible quality, and moreover, that if hu
lived lo-dny, with a brain of such rare
quality nihlcd to the enlarged si/.e ut it,
sue li as nature equips men with now,
ills  genius   would   have,  been prnpoi*;
tlonntely nWgniilcd.
"Julius Caesar was n mighty nmn—
for his limes. If ho lived to-day 1 doubt
if he wonld be much larger than Tom
Thumb. By a careful syetetn of calculation I figure out tliat the grent
Caesar would have worn n 6% hat, and
as for Shakespeare, colossal, figuratively speaking, as was his bruin, 1 have not
the slightest doubt that he curried it
nlhotit without, crowding In a a% hat—
and that's figuring on him generously,
too.
"1 have been told that Napoleon wore
a 0% hot in the latter years of his life,
and from one to two sizes smaller when
he wim simply nn ttlflcer in the nrmy.
If Napoleon Bonaparte had ever been
ublc to put on the hut of Oen. Grant
it would have hidden bim from sight
from the crown to the shoulders.
"Washington was a good-sized man,
yet he noi en hat -",*. sizes smaller than
McKinley'a, whose immediate predecessors, Presidents Harrison and Cleveland, wore still larger hats—7%. Let
me give you a furiher illustration. A
census of the United Suites congress,
taken in the time of'President Taylor,
50 years ago, shows that our legislators
of thut time only wore on the average
a ii1; hat. 1 doubt if there in a single
man In either house to-day who wears
so small a size.
"Webster, of course, had a phenomenally big bead. Of liis colleagues and
predecessors,! however, there waa not
one who wore it size a.s large 06 that
of tha present secretary of state. John
Sherman wears a 7% hat, Foster wore
a 7, Hin Ine ~\\ large size, and Bayard
7'/| close.
"hei me conclude with n further illustration of my theory. Old Commodore Vandorbilt, wore (1%. His son,
William 11.. took a hat a shade larger.
which the halters mark at (1% and HO,
Willie IC. Vonderblll and his brother
Cornelius went 7%, aud one of thc'.ioys
of the fourth generation taken a hat
stilllnrgertluin his fatligr, uncle, grandfather or great-grandfather — which
doesn't necessarily prote that the
youngcsl scion is lhe brainiest.
"It is lhc same way Willi the Ootllds,
Jay Oould wore a ti;,f, hat, while his
sons, Oeorge nnd I'Mdie, each require n

generation of boys will go their illustrious progenitor nt least three full

deully bud in mind the vagaries of the

that the tint nd hoicUtanils nu the boundary line of Ulster aud-Delawure counties, the boundary line passing almost
through the middle of the hotel building, The hotel therefore is In tha town-

in Hie township of Mldtlletowu, Dola-
wnrc county. Should Shiindiikeii go
dry, the hotel Imr could loe moved to

has been taken of this fact by iim hotel owners to keep down tlio assessment, snys tho Now York Sun,
The assessors of Shaudaken placed it
valuation   on   tho properly of $110,000,
bui agreed to assess it for only $?5,000
If the hotel would remain in that township. This year they have raised the
hotel assessment to $ao,000, nnd the
owners Imve notified them that they intend to remove the hotel to Delaware
county, where the nssessmonl will be
made'much lower by the town of Mid-
dlctown, The assessors of Shnndnkon

passed by lhe next legislature creating Ihis'hotel property into a special

the privilege of voting as lo where tbey
shall be assessed or whether X\\oy shall
be assessed at all.
SUBMARINE   ll VERS.
Tlmt  Strn.i-.uel>   HceiiU  Through  the
m-eiui'H  tlottnm,
A break in the cable laid between thc
Senegal eoust of Africa and lVrnnm-
I Inieo, in Brazil, live years ago, hns led
to an extraordinary discovery, related
recently uy Mr. Betiest to the Institution pf Electrical Engineers. Theeuble
was aa fine a one as modern methods
could devise, yet after three months It
broke ubout 1 Jt) miles from the African
const; it was repaired and broke again.
It was then found that at the place
where the break occurred there was a
great deal of vcgelnble growth resembling river weed; that the color of the
sen was a dirty brown 4'i green, Indicating the presence'nf ficsh witter, and
birds1 feathers, pieces of orange -peel,
setups of carpet and bits of driflwood
were tnkon from the bot torn of the ocean.
The phenomenon wus purely local, us
Ihe nearest rivi r was 75 miles away,
and discharged its waters In u different
direction. It was surmised thut it
meant.the sudden breaking through of
a submarine river, uml thc cubic was
moved to a distance; after two years
it, broke again, und wus moved onee
more, and engineers tire wailing to see
what will happen. Submarine rivers
are known to exist in other parts of
the ocean, olf the mouth of the Congo
and in the Gulf of Carpentaria, for Instance. This explanation, however, does
not account for the carpet and orange

as the potentates of other European nation*'. Uo is, therefore, pitted against

Emperor Franz Hose-pit, who has $5,*

give a certain number of reception.-**,
bulls and dinner parties, ami whenever
a visiting monarch comes to Paris he
must entertain him nnd his suite with
lhe  same   outward   dignity and state
that one sovereign shows another.
In theory the president Is niain-

is lodged, rent free In the Klysee; he
enjoys the prodiw • of the splendid

POLITICAL  POINTERS
Fernie Free Press: And still Mr. Mar
tin claims that the liberals as a party are
not divided will, regard to him as a leader lie should have been hete Monday
night.
Fernie Free Ticss: Though nine men
oul of len tell jou thai lhey are not going lu lake au a live pari in politics this
yea-, there is no doubt but that everyone
does lake a diep interest in what our
future Government will be, whether a
cntspaw for capital or a champion for
people's rights, and though we may differ in our political opinions there is no
necessity for us to be enemies for life,
ready to cut each other's throats, for
although some people support the man,
Ihere are n great many wbo have the idea
that principles me the first consideration
and the total composition of a party generally is a good criterion of the party's
principles.
