liy eight O'clock on Thursday evening
lust, the hour announced for tlie meet
ing of citizens to complete mi organization of a board of trnde, llie rooms over
th** Hunk of Commerce were comfortably
filled, showing thut the people are alive
to the fart tlmt there are many matleis
of n public nature that must he looked
after ami the only way to accomplish results is hy concerted action.
Tiie meeting was called to order by
Chairman Smythe, and after stating the
object of the gathering the report ol tlie
committee previously appointed to ascertain where rooms for the future use of
the hoard could be had and at what cost
was called for. The committee reported
that suitable rooms could be secured in
the Aiken block at a cost of (t2 per
month, including heat and light. The
report of the committee was duly accepted.
On motion of W. P. Reid tbe membership fee was placed at $1,00 for the first
quarter and 75 cents per quarter thereafter, invariably lo be paid In advance.
This amount was considered sufficient to
cover the cost of rent and leave a small
surplus for stationery, stamps, etc.
Mr. A. \V. McVittie then moved that
all those wbo were desirous of becoming
members ofthe association should place
their names upon the roll, the member'
ship fee to be collected at a future time.
The following named gentlemen responded to the call and placed their
names upon the roll :
Rev. J. Hall, J.T. Forrest, G. Bremner, A. Leitch, J. Mitchell, F. Mc^ues-
tin, R. Caldwell, Jim Ryan, A. Moffat,
G. Creighton, Mr. Kyre. II. A. Walkin-
son, C. A. Strong, W. I'. Reid, K. McCarthy, S. ti. Oliver, G. II. Miner, G.
Leask, J. I.ensk, J. McPeak, T. W. Leask,

Currie, T. S..Kennedy. A. W. McVittie.
F. F. Tieper, J. W. H. Smylhe, II. T.
Hrown, John Hutchison, R. S. McNeil,
R. E. Iteattie.
On motion of Mr. A. Moffat It was
then voted that the officers of the association shall consist of a president, vice-
president, secretary-treasurer nnd a
committee of five.
The meeting then proceeded to the
election of a president. Tbe names of
Mr. A. Leitch and Mr. J. W. IL Smythe
were placed iu nomination. Both gentlemen declined the honor. Finally Mr.
Leitch consented to accept, and theie
beiug no necessity for a ballot to be
taken the gentleman wns chosen by acclamation. Mr. Smythe was then elected
to fill lhe ollice of vice-president in the
same manner, there being no other
iiomiiiiitiotis for the place.
Messrs. McVittie and Hutchinson were
theu nominated for the office of secretary-treasurer. Mr. Hutchison declining, Mr. Moffat moved tbat tbechaiiman
cast tbe vote of the meeting for A. \V.
McVittie. There being no objection
this was done.
The meeting then p-oceeded to the
election Of the five members of the executive committee, it being understood
Itiateacb person present should casta
ballot containing the names of five persons of his choice. The ballot was then
taken, resulting in the election of Messrs,
G. Bremner, A. Moffat, \V. I'. Reid,
Jnnies Ryan and R   Iv. Heattie.
It was then moved by Mr. Moffat lint
the officers and committee just chosen
be constituted a committee to prepare
by-laws for the association and submit
the same lo a meeting to be called by
tbe president.   The motion prevailed.
The very Important matter of a name
for the organisation having been overlooked up to this stage of the proceedings, Mr. McVittie made a motion,
which was seconded by Mr. Hutchison,
thai the "Cranbrook Hoard of Trade"
be adopted as the name of the association. The motion prevailed, nnd the
Cranbrook Hoard of Trade was Ihere
and then declared a thing of life.
After some geucial discussion of matters which the board would he called to
lake up nt as eaily a dny ns possible,
such ns fire protection, sanitary conditions, cleaning of streets nud building of
sidewalks, the board ndjoitrned lo meet
at the Cfltl of lhe president.

Mr. Hamilton staled lo lhe committee
lhat the townsite would build in front of
all lots lieM by them ou linker street.
The water question was a difficult one
to niannge. Everything connected witb
the railroad is yet in the hands of the
Construction department, and uot until
work is completed and turned over
to the operating department could any-
thing definite be arranged, Mr. Hamilton stuted, however, that he- would take
the matter up with Mr. Macleod al ouce
and be thought arrangements could be
effected whereby a couple of hydrants
could be pul in—one ou tin.- corner opposite lhe townslte office and oue at the
intersection of Cranbrcok street with
linker street, it being understtod water
should be used for fire protection only,
and that tbe citizens should purchase
the hydrants and hose. The bottom of
the water tank lo bt erected in the railroad yards will stand aboul 40 feet above
tbe ground, which would furnish sufficient pressure to throw a stream onto the
roofs of two slory buildings.
The matter of bridges over Jiui Smith
creek—one where Durick avenue crosses
that stream and another ou Lewis
street—was taken up, but nothing definite waa decided upon, although Mr.
Hamilton was disposed to do all in bis
power to meet lhe wishes of the committee.
Several other things effecting lhe welfare of Craubrook were discussed and
will be taken up by tbe board and the
townsile management nt a later day.
Cranbrook, B. C.
And Assistant F. T. Qrlffln Pay Cranbrook
a Visit.
Last Satuiday Land Commissioner L.
A, Hamilton and Assistant F. T, Griffin,
accompanied by Solicitor Guid, spent
the day iu Craubrook. Mr, Hamilton
was kept very busy during the day, beiug iu consultation with the local town-
site agent and tbe various persons who
had, or thought they had, business with
tbe gentleman. Asked by a Hi-:kai.i>
representative if there was any foundation for a icport iu circulation in Craubrook that he intended to erect 15 or ao
cottages for rent Mr. Hamilton icplied
that he had uot heard of tbe matter be*
fore and had no euch intention, at least
for the present. Something of tbat
kind might be undertaken later should
the demand for dwelling houses warrant. Mr. Hamilton authorized Tiik
HKKAI.D to say, however, that tbe town-
site management would deal very liberally with all employes of the road in
case they desired to purchase lots and
build. Lois would be sold on small
uu.ullily pHyinenta atul ut very luw
Mr. Hamilton was considerably amused
when he learned tlmt several weak-
kneed denizens of Cranbrook bad nearly
gone into fits over the suspension of
work by tbe railroad company upou the
round house aud other necessary buildings. The iden that some other place
bad becu selected nud that the divisional
headquarters were to be removed wns
too absurd for serious consideration. As
stated at the time in these columns the
suspension was ordered by I'resideut
Van Home pending some slight changes
in the plans as originally adopted. The
revised plans are now in the hands of
Engineer Pratt aud work is again going
forward. The changes ordered are
piincipally iu more extensive trackage
facilities and (be better accommodation
ot tracks to turn table and round house.
A new lownsite map distributed over
town by .Mr. Hamilton shows the railroad yards and location ol tbe various
company buildings.
Replying to au inquiry as to what the
company's iutenliotis were in regard to
the establishment of a new town nt the
foot of Moyie lake Mr. Hamilton staled
thai circumstances aud cotid.lions
practically compelled the company to
put their station at the foot of the lake,
two mites below the town of Moyie.
Sufficient ground could uot be secured
at the latter place for tbe accommodation of sidetracks and buildings, tbere
fore they selected a sile at the foot of
lhe lake. Work upon the grounds for
the new towu is already under way, au
account of which and what is intended
to be done at once will be found in
another place in this issue.
Air. Hamilton aud parly left for the
west early on Suudiy morning.
Board o( Trade Committee Meet Land Com*
mlssioner Hamilton.
On the train from the rnst 011 Friday
night Laud Commissioner L. A. Hamilton nrrlved iu the city, aud at S o'clock
met a committee from the board of
trade in (he Hank of Commerce building. The object of the meeting wai, to
secure the co-operation of the townsite
management in cleaning up Baker
street, building of sidewalks on property
owned or controled by the company, the
privilege of making connection wilh the
water main which is being laid hy the
railroad company, and several other
matters in which the townsite and the
people are mutually interested.
Taking up the matter of grading and
clearing up Baker street, Mr. Hamilton
thought it would be as well to let that
matter rest until spring, as bad weather
would very likely set lu soon nnd any
labor expended now would be wasted in
tbat the street would be in bad condilioii anyway. Another reason assigned
waa tbe difficulty in seeming men to
perform the work. The railroad company wire short of help and could not
secure half ns many laborers ns they
needed lo finish up construction work
Illness of V. Hyde Baker.
TltB HrraI.D ts pleased lo be enabled
to announce that Mr. V. Hyde Baker,
local townsile agent of Cranbrook, who
has been seriously ill for the past four
weeks with the prevailing fever, is on
the improve, the disease having run its
course and the patient coming out first
best in tbe fight for life. Tbe struggle
was n haul one, made doubly so from
the fact that Mr. Baker had never before
been seriously sick and could scarcely
be prevailed upon to remain iu confine'
ment. His recovery is largely due to
the constant care and watchfulness during the early stages of bis illness of
Messrs, Joseph Laidlaw, A, B. Fenwick
and F. P. Norbury, for many years the
old and tried frieuds of Mr. Baker, and
latterly to the services of a trained
nurse, in whose hands the sick man has
been for the past ten days. Hyde's
tunny frieuds will be pleased lo learu of
his complete recovery, which is now assured within a short while.

Such li the Name ol the New Town at
Foot ol Like.
Col, Brayton returned to Craubrook
Sunday evening from a trip to tbe site
of the new town at the foot of Moyie
lake, where he hnd been in company
with Mr. L. A. Hamilton, laud commissioner for the C. P. R. The colonel has
given Thk HkrAi.d a few facts indicating what is being accomplished ami
what the intentions of the promoters are
for the future. The site is represented
to be an ideal one, situated as it is at the
foot of the lake upon comparatively
level ground, with a splendid view of
one of the most beautiful inland lakes
to be seen anywhere in the mountains.
A force of men are now engaged iu
clearing the timber from thirty acres of
the 440 which the company owns. As
soon as the ground is cleared it will be
surveyed and platted by Surveyor Tom
McVittie. The government is entitled
to every fourth block, and just as soon
as the government representative mokes
his selections lots will be placed upon
the market. Several lots have already
been purchased and selections will be
made later. A water tank has been
completed and lumber is on the
grouud for the station building. Con
tractor George Audeison is on the
ground with a force of men and thirty
teams and is grading fur the sidetracks.
It is understood that a syndicate has
been formed and will at once commence
the erection of a commodious hotel
building and make such other improvements as are required. Tbe indications
are that Movie Lake will at ouce come
into prominence and attract the attention of investors.
A Port ol Entry ind Customs Officer.
TiiK Hekai.ii is prelty reliably informed that Cranbrook will toon be
made a port of entry and Mr. W. S.
Keay, now stationed at Wardner, placed
in charge of the office. This is good
news. While thore is little necessity for
an officer being stationed nt Wardner so
long as there is oue at tbe boundary line,
there is urgent need for one here, and
our people are to be congratulated upon
the fact that Mr. Keay has been selected
for the position. He is a pleasant and
accommodating official.
Real Estate Transfers.
Tbe trntisfer of realty the past week
has been under the average considerably,
there being few sales. Assistant Train
Dispatchers A. IL and O. ti. Mansfield

nnd 13 in block 31. Lot 16 in block 35

who does not want bis name lo appear.
Postoffice Business.
The postoffice at Cranbrook, although
in existence lers thnn three months, is
mnking a gratifying showing in the
the money order and stamp sales. On
Monday of this week upwards of JSno in
money orders were issued, nud on the
same day stamps were sold lo the
amount of $25. Of course Ibis wns au
exceptionally heavy volume of business

states lhat Ibe receipts of office since thu
its opening are a surprise lo him and
the department.
A new feature has been inaugurated by
the postofliee department iu the mailer
of handling small sinus of money.    All

Constable add Health Officer.
To lhe Editor of Thk Hkrai.d:
It is to be hoped that the* newly-organized board of trade will see lhat the
right man is recommended for the posi
tion of constable and health officer. Too
often such nu official is almost worse
than useless, being hand in-glove witb
those who care little for tbe public good
if only their own ends are served. He
should be a man who will guard sacredly
the best interests of the citizens, and one
who will sec that lhe laws affecting the
morals, as well as the cleanliness, of the
town arc properly observed. Heads of
families who would make desirable citizens will be quick to note anything that
would make it easier for them In bringing up their boys and girls as they
would wish to do.
Hoping tlmt a man of good moral
character and discretion will be appointed, and thanking you for inserting
this letter, I am. yours truly,

Hon. J. lied lluiue, lhe newly Appointed minister of mines, has issued In-

President Van Home talked to a reporter of lhe Kossland Miner when iu

said: "I have no doubt thai the construction of the Canadian Pacific railway
from l'cnlicloii to Hope, on lhe I-'raser
river, will be undertaken just as soon as
the extension of tiie line is completed
from Robsoil to Peulictoii. The building of the line clean through lo Hope

The selection of Mr. A. Leitch as
president of the hoard of hade of Craubrook was a most wise one. He is a
man of good judgment aud business ability, and will make an efficient officer.
He has shown his faith in the town by
his actions, and sometimes actions
speak louder than words. Coming here
wilh an expensive plant wh*n there was
not a building in the place he set an example and gave euc mr Ago tlie lit lo other

J. It. Tyrrell, dominion goverumei t
surveyor, has returned Irom the north.
He says his report to the government
upon the Yukon country will be \ery
favorable. IK* argues lhat there is no
mother lode, as is popularly supposed,
iu the Yukon country. Ages ago the
country was full of gold-bearing quartz.
The gold, iu the course of centuries,
from vat ious causes has been separated
from the rock and concentrated in the
creeks and valleys. There is no quartz
of any value ii) the country now he
thinks. The Yukon is good for 20 j eats
to come, and the next year will see twice
tbe amount of gold recovered than has
come oul this season.
All through Kast Kootenny, by many
considered us rich if uot richer in mining properties than West Kootenay,
there are Indications of increased activity consequent on ,lhe opening uf ihe
Crows Nest Pass railway furnishing the
means cf transportation for which the
district has long wailed. There are
some very rich mines along the line of
the railway which will begin shipping
ore just as soon as the company accepts
freight of lhat character, besides these
mines a large and important section of
country will be made tributary to the
railway, which means wide mining development in these parts. Coal and
coke from the pass will shortly begin to
move aud lhe establishment of smelters
at convenient places may be looked for.

Miss Nuney fairly gasped for breath.
"You're a foot," she said, as soon as
she eould command her voice, "to tnke

"1 wouldn't marry the squire's

Miss Nancy sat In the kitchen and
nursed lier ivrut'li.

Diaiiioud Dyes, ns far as general usefulness is roneiTiled, are fur ahead of
all flie-adultcrated paokago nud soap
grease dyes now beforo tho public.
These crude package dyes and soap
grease mixtures arc very limited in
their powers. 'Tis true, tbey given

fabrics, but wben tried ou good dress
materials anil heavier goods such as

they are simply worthless.
The Diamond Dyes, owing to their
great powers of penetration, their perfect solidity nud depth of shade, their
purity and brilliancy, aro adapted for
all classes of goods from tbe thinnest
gauze to the heaviest tweeds. This
great range of work, possible ouly to

Fifty years ago Um ullowonoe of
paint in the British navy wiih very
small, and si utetiuioH tbe officers bad
to pay large sums iu order that their
skips might maintain a decent appearance, tine of thom resorted to a humorous expedient, either to sofleu the heart
of the navy board, or if tbat proved impossible, to express his opinion.
Sir .lohn riiillimore painted ouo side
of his old yellow frigate black and
white and used tho rest of thu bluett
paint iu printing ou tho other sidu in
[urge letters, "No mure puiut. "
The navy hoard wrolo to call his attention to tbo impropriety of his cou-
iltint and signed themselves, uh thoy did
officially, "Your aftoeMoUuto friends."
To (bis Sir John replied that bu could
Uot obliterate the objectionable letters
unions ho was given moro paint und
signed himself in turn, "Your affection atu friend, John Phillimore."
Tlm navy board then called his attention to the impropriety of thu signature,
to which 8ir John replied, acknowledging tbo letter, stating that he regretted
tbut thu paint had nut been sent and
oudiug: " I am no longer your offootlon-
ate friend, John Phillimore."
His frigate was allowed to retain her
original yellow, and perhaps the navy
board did right thus to punish Sir John's
impertinence.—Youth's Companion.
neneflclKl Effects of Coffee.
A woman writer who gave np coffee
recently fouud that she was unable to
continue her writing with any success
until she had resorted again to the stimulating bevcraga Without it her mind
was logy and heavy. The Medical Times
quotes an authority on the subject of
prescribing coffee as a medicine in certain states of great debility and odds:
"Tea and coffee seem to be much
alike in many respects, but the latter is
greatly preferable as to its sustaining
power. It would be a great advantage
to our working classes and a great help
toward the further development of social sobriety if coffee were to come iuto
greatly increased uso and if tho ability
to make it well could bo acquired. As
au example of tho difference of effect of
tea and coffee upou tho nerves tho
writer notes what he belioves mauy
sportsmen will confirm—that it is far
better to drink coffee than tea when
shooting. Tea, if strong or in any quantity, especially if the individual bo uot
in very robust health, will induce a sort
of nervousness which is vory prejudicial
to steady shooting. Under its influence
oue is apt to shoot too quickly, whereas
coffee steadies tho bund and gives quiet

Mr. Quiller-Couch tells this story in
the Pall Mall Magazine: "Hicks, governor of tho Cornwall County Lunatic
asylum, had a great mauy friends—extramural friends, I moau—and among
them uu accomplished landscape painter. This artist, captivated by tho beauty
of the littlo seaport town of Kast Looe,
took lodgings there, chose his 'subject'
and started to make some drawings of it
on the rocks at low tido.
"A fow days later Hicks drove over
to sue him, nnd arrived at West Looe to
be taken across the harbor iu a boat. To
hin surprise, be fouud a boatman waiting for bim. Still more to his surprise,
the boatman bailed him thus:
" 'Aw, Mr. Hicks, I've a-been looking out for 'ee tbo last day or two. I
kuowed you'd come. He's over here
now. He's been hollering and screeching. Ho sits at low water down among
the weed, a-paiufing nt a bit of board,
and he calls out, "Come into the garden, Maud." A pretty garden ho've
a-got there! "I'm here by the gate

Mr. Fontaine, hurriedly surveying the

Putting on a waterproof wrap and
arming himself with a light silk umbrella,

And then Mr. Fontaine walked in, holding his hat ln his band.

Matty colored a deep cherry pink.

"but there is some dreadful mistake here.

harder to keep back her laughter as the

Mr. Fontaine began to laugh. So did
Matty and Ereleun, and In flvo minutes
they wero tho best friends ln tbo world.

Mr. Fontaine came often after that. So

felt that she could no longer face hor denr
society friends without being ablu to tell
of her experiences lu reforming somebody.
Arming herself with disinfectants she
started on her errand. Climbing a stairway tn tho tenement district, she traversed a dark hall, feeling au Imaginary
dampness oreop through her shoes and
thinking of cough drops for the morrow.
Entering one of the rooms, she found
herself unexpectedly In the presence of a
pale, poorly dressed woman, and concluded Bhe would begin her work of reform by
reminding her that cleanliness Is nkln to
godliness, and an inspection of the premises was in order.
Turning cautiously toward tho unmado
bod, suspicious of seeing " the terror which
creepeth by night," hor oyes rested upon n
woman with a newborn babe at her sido.
"I did not know that you had others

I was visited by n robust looking man
In the prime of life, who stated that ho
was a master plumber, and that, being
deficient In his arithmetic, ho was finding
lt difficult to keep track of his bookkeeper's accounts, now that his business was
Increasing. A little fencing, however,
elicited the pitiable admission that he was
totally unable to read) He could road
figures, add a little and Just write his own
name—all ho bad ever learned ln his na
tlvo country—the Green Isle, but, though
he had hitherto been successful ln concealing his limitations from the people about
him, certain olroumetances had recently
given him the alarm, and he had mado up
his mind to try to mend matters. And
what a struggle was hisl What pathos In
his groping efforts to spell out his way
through the primer whleh his own little
son had thrown aside two years boforo I
But night after night, summer and winter,
he kept It up, until at last he had bis re-
■ward, and. he could look his littlo boy
boldly In the faoe and had no more fears
ot his bookkeeper.—Chambers' Journal.

A Nova Bcotian Farmer Tells of Hin liit-iine
H- Bering From   ithcuinatliim   and   How
He Fouud Relief.
I'luiti tin- Brlalgewutor, N.S., Rnterprlso,
Suili suffering as rheumatism causes
the victim upon whom it fastens Itself
is aluioHt unendurable. Only thoso
wbo writhe under its pangs can imagine tho joy of ono who bus been freed
from its terrors. Mr. .1. W, Folken-
hitm, of New Kim, N.8., is one of those
who huvo been released from pain, and
who believes it his duty to let others
know how a cure can be found. Mr.
Folkeuham is a farmer, and liko all
who follow this arduous but honontbli*
calling, is subject lo much exposure.
It was this exposure that brought on
his trouble nud caused bim so mueh
suffering before he was rid of it. He
says:—"In the spring of 181)7 I contracted rheumatism, Throughout the
whole summer I sulIVred from it, und
about tho first of October it became so
bad that I eould uot get out of Iho
houso. Tho pains were located in my
hip nud back, and what I Buffeted can
hardly bo expressed, I becamoso help-
loss I could not dress myself without
aid. Eventually the trouble spread to
my bunds nnd arms, uud at times these
would lose all feeling and become useless. Iii November I begun using Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills, nnd after tatting
four boxes began to Improve, After
using six boxes the pains and soreness
hud all gone and I was able to do a
hard day's work. I intend using a few
more boxes more us a pr(*cautiouui*y
measure, and I would earnestly advise
thoso suffering front this painful
trouble to give Dr. Williams' Pink PU1b
n fuir trial and be made well.
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of tho disease. They
renew and build up the blood, and
strengthen the nerves, thus driving disease from the system. Avoid imitations by insisting that every box you
purchase is enclosed iu a wrapper bearing tho full trade murk, Dr. Williams'
PiukPillB for Palo People.
