The opening of the football icasnn wns
inaugurated Monday  evening by a name
played between two teams picked from
the Cranbrook club, with enough out
side enthusiasts to fill out the Bides, under the titles of Captains nud Vice Cup-
tains, nnd a very fair exhibition of football was given. The Craubrook dub
is to he congratulated on the imiugura
tion of these fortnightly games, which
will do much to strengthen the play of
the team. The attendance was small.
but there is no doubt with warmer
weather nnd longer evenings the townspeople will show due appreciation ol the
club's efforts, to provide a summer's
evening enjoyment by attending in
larger numbers. As il was, the boys
realized their responsibility ami worked
hard to give tho-.e who watched the
value of their money.
Tbe teams were very evenly matched,
and showed good judgment on tlie part
of Messrs. Watt and LeltCU in chonsing
Iu the first half, with the iligbt advantage uf the down hill, the Vice Captains
showed up better, and sever.d determined attacks were made on their opponents' goil. The final etl'urls were
marred however by poor aud slow shooting, and only one go;d resulted where
at least three should have been scored
fhe goal was the result of some fairly
good combination wori: by the whole
forward line, leaving Christian to finally
exploit the ball pnsl McKlm, McKltll
later saved well against u really hot shol
from the same player. MeKiin is undoubted!) an excellent goal keeper, but
just a liltle too fond of taking a short
rest with the ball in his arms, and the
opposing forwards too , lose to be pleasant. The vice captnin men however
did not have matters all their own way.
TheCHptains forwards got busy once or
twice and had it not been for the exertions of Home, ably assisted by the
back division, would hnve scored. Half
time arrb'ed with the score 1 to uin favor
of the Vice Captains.
In the second half the Vice Captains
got a touch of that tired feeling and in
proportion the Captains began to get in
and drill. And they drilled so well that
they scored two goals within live minutes of each other. The backs, Home,
Leitcb and McDermot, hail their work
cut out to stop repeated rush**!*., nnil it
was only 10 minutes before the releree's
whistle blew time that their forwards
realized thnt ihey had better do something. Then they rallied, and a good
corner shot from Smith almost scored,
but went a little too high, Time found
the ball at lhe Capluins end ofthe field,
aud the Vice Captains working hard to
equalize the score. They were however
11 nsuccessful and victory rested with
A. Watt's team hy 2 goals to 1.
The band rendered several very enjoyable selections. Inspiring the players

It Promises to Re the Swcllcst Social Event
ol the Scasoa.
For the  past  year  the   bachelors of
Cranbrook have been enjoying the bus
plttllty ol Cranbiook ladies, and it occurred to some of them thai it would be
well lo reciprocate. Willi this idea in
view the mailer was discussed and it was
finally resolved Hint they would give a
ball, But it is to he no common ordinary
hall, bul oue that the ladles would appreciate and be made to feel ihat ihe efforts of lhe ladies to enlertain the gentlemen hml been appreciated
The date fixed for this event is May
20, nml tt will be held iu the Wentworth
hall. M ssis King, Roikendorf, Haines
and McDermot constitute the committee and no expense or pains will he
spitted to render the occasion oue long

of Cranbrook.

Broke His Neck.
William Heatherington, who was employed by Grant & Smith at Elko, met
his death Wednesday of Inst week i 11 a
sudden manner. He was working iu a
rock cut, uml a large rock from the bank
above him broke louse nnd lulling struck
him on the neck and shoulders, breaking
hts neck and crushing bis shoulder, and
knocking him from the ledge 011 the

Rules Worth Considering.
1 Never pass tbe ball. The other
men ou your team are uot ou the field to
assist you. The 1 tiles require II men
aside and they are ou the ground only
to comply with tbat rule. Therefore, if
you get tbe ball, take it up the ground
by yourself. Don't get anxious nbout it.
One ofthe other side will certainly come
along ami take it from you, which is
quite proper, It is belter thu you should
lose the ball this way than voluntarily
part with It to one of your own side
In the laller cise there is always the
danger of his following your example
uml passing again, thus introducing 11
system of combination play, which, if
successful, would eveiiluale iu a goal being scored.
2 Talk all yon can. If you can't
shoot tbe ball, shoot off your jaw. Tall:
ing in as loud a voice as possible Is a
splendid thing for the wind. It keeps
the referee in a placid humor, too. Ii
also amuses the spectator.*-.    They have
paid their money to see footbnl
played; they have paid to hear two team?
wrangle, and they will be sore if ihey
don't get their money's worth,
3 Don't shoot at goal on the dead
run. Von must give lhe bucks time to
get between you aud the goal, aud also
the goal ke'eper time to catch on to your
intentions. If brilliant nndqulc kshoot
ing is persisted in, a goal may be secured by accident.

Cranbrook today hns a number of
boya who are rapidly going to the bad.
Tbey are permitted by their parents to
roam lhe streets day or night without
any apparent restraint They do not go
to school, have no ambition and display
evident pride in the per fori 11 a nee of
mean acts and rowdy ways It seems to
be tbelr desire to destroy property and
make trouble whenever un opportunity
Is afforded. Instilling at times, never
displaying the finer traits of 11 gentleman, coarse and vulgar in their conversation, they nre rapidly forming wrong
Ideas of life, and their future will indeed
lie a dark one. What parent*) can think
of lo permit children lo run wild iu this
way we cannot Imagine. What can tbey
expeel of n child allowed lo do this, and
what will a child like that become wheu
grown. No education, no power of restraint, no ambition, uo high ideals of
life, no trade, no profession, what chance

There is only oue hope for such—a laborer's life and a laborer's pay, or a life

ful of that well known company to send

But since studying the guide we are all
right. There is C. I* R stock, United

several hundred thousand hardly knows

Trail, B. C, April 35,-Tbe first pig
lead product of ore mined, smelted and
refined in Canada has been produced hy
tbe lead refinery erected here by the
Canadian smelling works. Early lo
May the plant will be in full operation
with sufficient capacity to refine all the
present output of the works here.
It ia the first and only silver-lead refinery in the Dominion, and ita product
is the highest grade of manufacturing
lead, free of all impurities. The refinery
will encourage consumption of Canadian
lead in Canada, especially that consumed
in the manufacture of paint. At present
Canadian lead is marketed abroad aud
111 nuufactured into white lead, about 8000
tons of which are annually Imported
from Germany. After being taxed with
about 12,000 mites of transportation and
the foreign labor of refining and converting into white lead, it is brought back
to Canada ami used iu the manufacture
of paint. This is made possible by reason of the fact lhat there is only 5 per
cent duty 011 white lead. It is nndcr-
Stood that white lead works will be established in connection with the refinery
upon the supposition that tbe government may be induced to adjust tbe tariff.

giving terms, wbiih Include frelebt and
treatment, Is offset by an Inclination to
acrew up the rate on ore to other Cana-
daln smelters, It is Inttrnmental In retaining business on tbe Canadian aide.
Tbe Grand Forks Smelter and tbt
Dominion Smelter are American enterprises locatd on tbe Canadian side,their
situation being chosen wltb a single eye
to permenent and profitable returns.
Tbe wet ores, Indlspenstble as Muxes,
are on tbe Canadaln side, but as yet the
dry ores required to give the resultant
bullion sum-lent value to silver have
not been discovered north of tbe line.
As tbe dry ores are widely distributed
throughout the northern mining States
and must be assembled at some point
for smelting purposes, the most convenient location for tbe smelters Is where
the Indlspenstble fluxes are 10 be found.
The tariff laws help to torn the balance In favor of British Colombia, for
there the smelter can collect ores from
elttier side of the boundry free of duty,
bile there is a tariff of oue and one
half cents a pound on the lead contents
of ore entering the United States. If
the American market weie tbe final
destination of the lead, the tax of one
and one-half cents per pound on pig
lead would act In the opposite direction
but the A-aerlcan supply ls greater than
the demand, and OineJatn lead will
have to Hod a market (elsewhere.
American inventors have no fear of an
eaport duiy on ores, but they do not
know tbat at any time au import tariff
may deprive tbem of necessary Canadaln ores and vlrtuallyruln any America! smelter depending upon that source.
Tha subsidy voted by the Canadian
governmeut for the refining of lead In
Canada, so far aa It has any influence,
will also tend to divert smelting enter
prists toward the Canadian side. Tbe
arrangement for smelting tn bond
In tbe United States -hasjuotproven
satisfactory to the smelters nor to the
Canadaln mine owners.

The Otld Fellows of Cranbrook observed the Sjd anniversary of Odd Pel-
lowahip io America by holding the an-
ual service last Sunday in the Baptist
church. Tbe members of Key City
lodge and visiting O.ld Fellows met at
tbe local lodge room at 3 o'clock and
formed their line under tbe guidance of
J. H Wolfe, who ofheiated as marshal
of the day. There were aboat 50 In line,
and tbey marched io double file to tbt
church, where seats were reserved for
tbem. There wss a large attendance by
tboee not members of the lodge. Tbt
church waa beautifully decorated with
flowers and evergreens, which gave It a
most attractive appearance. A special
choir was arranged for the occasion, and
the |music was exceptionally good, and
tbe solo by Mtss Fionis elicited many
words of praise.
Rev. Auvache, tbe pastor, preached
an able sermon, and dnring his discourse
gave advice tbat young and old might
well ponder over, and be influenced
At tbe close of Ibe services a substantial collection was taken up tor the Odd
Fellows' home. Tbe Odd Fellows
formed into line again and marched
back to tbe hall, wheie a short aeation
waa held, and adjournment followed.
Looks Better ftr British CtliaMa.
Jobn Manly, chief engineer of the
Kettle Valley lines, ia a guest at the
Phair, says the Nelson Newa. He and
Mrs. Manly have been on a pleasure trip
to the east for the past month, during
which tbey visited Toronto, Washington
and other leading cities. Mr. Manly, in
speaking about the business situation In
the east, said: "Everything is looking
well there, and business is good everywhere. Money is plentiful and some of
it will be available for mining. The
feeling toward mining is veering around
in direction of British Columbia, and
tbe outlook Is tbat within a short time
meritorious mining proposltiona need
not go a begging iu Toronto and Montreal. There will not be the same opportunity for wlldvatting tbat there was
when Rossland was in its heydey, but
there will lie a chance tor raining enterprises of tbe right sort. It is my opinion
that the Granby will soon begin to pay
dividends, and tbis will have a beneficial
influence. Besides this a number of
Kootenay mining companies are distributing profits among their fortunate
stock holders, and tbis has aided In
bringing about a revulsion in favor of
mining, and I look fur considerable investing this fall in our properties."

When one stops to consider the immense urea of South East Kootenny, its

Spread the Fame ol British Columbia.
Marysvllle Tribune,
There la no doubt In the world that
British Columbia, as a province, has
been handicapped so far as growth and
development are concerned. There
are many reasons for this. Situated,
as our Province is, on the very western
fringe of the Dominion, separated from
the more populous parts of the country
by great stretches of plains and seas ot
mountains It has been left out in the
cold, si to speak, aud lis wonderful
resources have been as an uncut boon 10
tbe people In the east. To llie people
of Europe, eacepl In a very exclusive
mining circle In London, it has been a
veritable "terra Incognita." Time and
time again thc British Ci-lamb Ian meeting a friend in England, when on a
visit there, bas been addressed thu*;
"Oh yes British Columbia, South
America somewhere." People don't
know and don't care where British
Columbia Is and get It mixed In their
minds with British Honduras, British
Becknanaland and ■ the hundred
and one British somethings that are
scattered all over the world.
As we have mentioned ever since the
Marysvllle Tribune has been published,
which by the way Is six months counting ibis Issue, the people of British Columbia shou'd do all they can to let thc
outside world know what we have In
our country. The government do. tt Is
true, get out some pamphlets and so do
the railway companies which are more
or less distributed throughout the east
and Europe; but more than this is wanted. There are very few persons residing In the province who have not ai
least one friend or acquaintance In thr
east or In the old country who wmld
be Interested i.i knowing something
ahout British Co'umblaand even If ihry
are   not  malerljlly  Interested   them
selves thev In turn will know some one
that Is, ami will tell ihem what tbey
have heard and by this means the story
ot Hie resources of this great western
province will be scattered abroad very
mu.-li   on  the  endless chain principal.
A word from oui- satisfied settler In
the province Is worth more than a
hundred government pamphlets. We will
know this; we, eveiyonu ol us take the
word of a friend and value It much
more than anything we see In print.
We say, therefore, keep telling the
outside world that which you know to
be true about British Columbia,

Ii begins to look as If the Great Nor
thern wou'd take the initiative In getting a road up the St. Marys valley.
As soon as the road between the
(Ireat Northern and Fernie Is completed, Il is pretty generally understood
that that company will proceed to build
from E ho north to the St- Marys river,
and up tfiat valley lo the Pureed range
also securing take teiinlnals, and connection with Hill's road lu West Kootenay. This would give the Great Northern a complete circuit through the
richest mining district of British Column n, and a strong pull for future business.
It Is a qiestion, of course, as to
whether the C, P It will sit down and
lanu-.ly submit lo this Invasion. In all
probability, there will be a pretty fight,
and Marysvllle will be the center ofthe
contest. The building of a railway is
going to make lively limes here this
summer, aid Marysville promises to be
one of the best loff.ua In Eastern Bri
tlah Columbia.
There are tne very best ot reasons to
believe that one of the roads will build
this summer and possibly both. The St
Marys valley is au Important link to
the Jim Hill system lu British Columbia
.11 il li is fully as important, If not more
so to the C P It Of course the latter
road has already a survey made up the
valley several miles, Tbe Great Northern has a charter in their hands and
can build when they see fit.
Which ever way It goes, Marysvllle
is bound to profit, as It will be head
quarters of all operitlons, K ko Is
pretty lively during the construction of
the Biltlah Columbia; Southern, but 10ko
Is not In ll to any extent to what
Marysville will be as soon as thla read
starts up the valley. There will be not

I "I want no one but Clyde, papa,"

But tears imule no Impression on the

Advertise, and advertise right.
Why are your goods the best? Your
