Notes of Interest.
lt is HOW staled on good uitllioritv
that possibly by viv. 15U1 of May, and
certainly noi later than tlie first of June,
a dally passenger service'will* be established from Medicine llut to Nelson over
lhe Crows Nest liue. Everything is
ready for llie change, so tbat it wi.l be
made just as soon as the roadbed of the
Crows Nest line, is considered lo be in a
safe condition for more rapid running.
This will virtually be a through train
from Winnipeg to Nelson, as close connection will be made at Medicine liat
with trains on the main line. This new
sei vice will mean a material reduction
in ihe running time between Macleod
ml Kootenay Lauding, and will make
the Ciows Nest line a popular route for
tourists as well as parties seeking locations in the west,
The fact that through trains will be
run will in uo way effect conditions in
Craubrook. At llie present time not
more than one in twenty who arrive in
Cranbrook is a through passenger, but
011 the contrary he comes to Cranbiook
lo transact busiuess here, or some other
point iu the district. Tbe Installation
of a fast passenger service will increase
the tiaflie many fold, aud bring more
trangers to Craubrook than arrive
under existing coudlHjus, Iu fuet, the
change in the service will prove a good
thing to the whole district as it will cubic people to reach here without auy
discomforts or hardships.
Railroad Notes.
The section gangs are being Increased
in numbets all along tbe line.
Three steam shovels are at work now,
nnd au average of three miles a day is
coveted with gravel.
Ilox Car avenue is rapidly settling up
with railway officials, And what i.s
nnue, some ofthe neatest and cosiest
homes in Craubrook are on that street.
It is now reported, tbat Mr. Bostock,
who has in charge the bill providing for
ihe granting of Ibe Corbiu charter, advises those interested that it will be im
possible lo secure tbe passage of the bill
at this ses-ion pf parliament
On the at st a meeting of the railway
comtiiity ol the privy council was held
lo consider tbe application of the Nelson
& Ueillington railway company for running privilege over the western portion
uf the Crows Nest I'ass line. The engineers agreed that it would icost *f3i,-
COO a mile lo parallel the liue for tbe
distance required. The C. P. R. attorney said that the company making the
application should bear part of lhe expense of thi.- approaches to this profitable part ofthe line, but Mr; illair was of
the opinion tbat such a precedent would
tft a bad one. Tbe matter was postponed a mouth lo give time for consider lion.

Miss E. Pauline Johnson, the Indian Poet.
Appears In Cranbrook.
Miss K, Pauline Johnson, the daughter of a head chief ofthe Mohawks, gave
two entertainments in Cranbrook, appearing Saturday nud Monday evenings
at the Presbyterian church.' To one
who has never heard her she is a most
interesting revelaliou. Graceful iu her
movements, pleasing in her tone and
charming iu appearance, she holds her
audience with perfect ease while reciting her wonderful tales of nature. Her
compositions me in nature's own
language, aud she displays the true
poetic instinct iu the grouping of ideas
and her rythmical combination of words,
To see her in her Indian costume, and
hear her recite, one can see tha
sparkling waters, the overhatigine
branches lhe peaceful padding in g
batk canoe, and catch the fragrance ol
wild flowers, or feel the rush ol the lor
rent, the da<di of the Indian brave in
baltle, the flash of the lenile and the
swish of lhe tomahawk, And, then
again, she appears in beautiful evening
costume, and recites poem.-* antl prose
that are caustic reflections on the foibles,
shams and hypocrisy pf Tlfe. Her sarcasm is as keen as a Damascus Made,
her wit ar sparkling as champagne
and her pathos as touching as the sob of
a child. Those iu Cranbrook who Heard
Miss Johnson were indeed fortunate.

The Right Kind of Business Men.
The Herald will put the merchants
and business men ol Cranbrook against
those of any town in British Columbia
for loyally to their town town and their
newspaper. They are broadminded in
their views, aud believe that a .lews-
paper is a good thing for a town, and
hack up that belief by giving tbeir sup-
pott to the paper. In all of Craubrook
there are only two or three business men
who uie nol represented in the advertising columns of The Herald, aud we be
Sieve they will be in line before long.
The Herald is working for the town and
the people of the town, and is pleased lo
receive such substantial evidence of ap
Cranhrook Continues to Oo Ahead in a
Substantial Manner.
Is Now Rccognued as thc Commercial and Mining Center of
South East Kootenay.
It is exceedingly pleasant for th ■ people oi Craubiook to see the building
Otltinue in ibis town. Week after week
ii continues, showing that the coufideuce
in Cranbrook of meu with capital grows
Btranger month by mouth. New business blocks aud new residences are going up, and lhe demand is still growiiig
.Nowhere in either of the Kootetiays is
Ihere a town ol the age of Cranbrook
that 1ms made m.h progress, A little
more than a year old, and yet today it It
recognized ns the leading towniuEssl
Kootenay, At no time has there been a
boom here, or liooming tactics used.
The growth his been steady and sure,
keeping pace with the development ot
the tributary territory, and meeting the
Increasing demand. The fact that Cranbrook is the central point in South Bast
Kootenay has naturally increased her
growth, lor It h-*s brought to this town
those people who were looking for a location that would most easily command
the whole district. This has been the
case in mining. Iii commerce, in commission deals, In rail load matters, in fact lu
everything tlldt pertains to the business
of ihe who c district. And this condition is growing stronger each month
As Cranbiook ts the only town 111 tht
district that is so centrally located and
has railroad transportation, its stead)
growth is reasonable and based upon a
iolld foundation. Shrewd tiieit iu business, men who do business 011 a business basis, and are not governed b;
prejudice or sentiment; *ho care nothing personally which lown goes ahead,
alter studying ihe field, decide in favoi
of Craubrook. That is why Craubrook
continues to Kr,jw. and why she will con
tinut: to grow. Another twelve mouths
will see a wonderful Increase iu Cran
brook in many ways, It will pay any-
tie to keep their eyes on this towti.

The titles of the King of Spain suggest a large part of the history of tbe
world. He Is King of Jerusalem,
which Is Turkish; of Navarre, which Is
French; of Gibraltar, which Is British,
and of the East und West Indies, which
nre largely British; Duke of Brabant
uud Count of Flanders, now the two independent kingdoms of Holland und
Belgium; aud sovereign of numerous
other lauds loug since independent or
under the undisputed sway of other
powers. He bears upon tils person,
ludeed, an epitome of the glory and the
fall of Spain.
An Intelligent effort Is being made to
convince European nations thai corn

pie," Is "wholesome vitals." Some
headway Is being mude, and since the
United States produces more than two
billion bushels, the export supply may
be regarded ns equal to any demand
the corn evangelists operating In Europe can create. The royal family of
Denmark takes kindly to corn, nud

may be created.

hand, are tenacious of their rights ns
against corporatIons or public servants, even at grenl eost lo themselves.
Frenchmen van also mi occasion show
a like spirit. A good example of It has
lately beeu brought to the public attention in Paris. A business man, forced
by a misadventure to wait nu hour nud
a half at a railway station, took up the
table of rates nnd charges, which the
railroad company wns required to keep
open to the public. He found tlmt the
advertised facu for the trip he was
about to mako v>as twenty-nine francs
and ninety-live centimes, whereas the
fare usually exacted was thirty francs.
Wben he bought bis ticket hu offered
twenty-nine francs and ninety-live cf-n-
tllties; the tigelil refused to give hlm a
ticket. He paid thirty francs under
protest, uud nfter his return lo the city
demanded tho return of tho excess -
about one cent in our money. The
company refused to refund It. He
sued the railroad company for restitution, und won his cose. The company
appealed, uud tbe tlrst decision was
sustained. The ease was then carried
to the Court of Cassation, the highest
court open to It. Again the decision
wus iu the clthten's favor; the company
was ordered to restore the cent to him.
nnd to lower Its fare to the prescribed
figure. Tbe litigation cost the company
more than three thousand francs, anil
the citizen about a thousand. He had
vindicated n principle, and no doubt
considered himself well repaid. The
citizen would perhaps In onr country
be called "a kicker," but he was kicking in the service of the community,
and the community owes hlm Its slu

China hns at last mude Its flrst concession to nn American company. The
Decretory of State has received notice
that thu American China Development
Company htm been permitted to build a
railroad from Hankow on the Yung

■ea. Thc line will be 000 miles long
and will run through provinces tributary to a population of nearly 1*0,000,-
000 people. The company now Is negotiating for extensions to the main line,
which tt Is also believed will be granted. With a view of enabling the Chinese ultimately to construct and operate railways the Amerfcnn-Chlua Development Company is to establish a
school of practical Instruction In railways, where Chinese shall be educated

serves to emphasize the Importance of

The conditions at Australia and the
Philippines show thc differences In the
methods of government practiced by
Great Britain and Spain. In Australia
practically the same civilised conditions exist as In England, and everything that can be done to reform the

The Koreans are exhibiting the wildest delight over the announcement that
their king Is about to marry. This act
on his part menus more to those people than Is commonly supposed by
such as nre Ignorant of Borne nf the
curious customs of that people. The
king takes precedence In all matrl-
mouinl affairs, for so long as tho king
Is single uo marriage may take place in
his domains among his subjects. All
good Koreans, therefore, who obey the
letter of the law religiously nnd patriotically postpone their weddings until
the kiug hus taken a spouse uuto himself. Among the common people this
law Is not strictly obeyed, but among
the nobility und thc better class of
people no one would think of marrying before tbe king, ns such a violation
of the law would cause the offender to
lose caste. But marriages are arranged
In Korea without reference to the parties to lt, and "falling lu love" Ik a
thing of which a Korean Is never
guilty. Since the murder of the queen,
some two years or more ago, none of
the members of good families have
married, and the people, more than a
year since, became so impatient for
the king to wed that tbey expressed
their discontent openly. The king's advisers made known to bim the dissatisfaction among bis subjects, nud he began the work of bunting up a wife.
Although he Is over 00 years of age
his choice was the daughter of a nobleman who had not reached her sixteenth
year. His ministers objected to the
king making that kind of a fool of himself, since it Is against the time-honored
customs of the empire for the king to
take a wife so many years his Junior.
The advice of the ministers prevailed,
but while thc king abandoned the
maiden he could not be Induced to look
with favor upon any «f tho others
whom tils advisers presented for his
selection. This set the people again In
a rage, and Iinally the king delegated
to his advisers the power of selecting
a wife for him without his interference. This selection bus beeu made,
and tbe future queen of Korea Is reported to be very liniidHoiue. according

OI,.\ VEJAIt, simple child of a
elcSS race, believed in her very
that wealth would outweigh
In the heart uf Antonio Mascavel the
beauty of Itefugio Garflas, great nud
renowned though that might be.
Therefore, and for this only, did she
sigh for riches and bate the poverty
with which Providence had sect tit to
curse her. For Sola wns not beautiful,
save for the beauty that some find In a
firm chin aud a powerful mouth, a wide
forehead and deep eyes overset with
mighty brows—which may have their
charm for the student of his kind, but
not for a lover, aud, least of all, for a
Mexican lover.
Antonio .Mascavel preferred the type
of Itefugio—small-featured, red-tipped,
soft-eyed, graceful, and lovely as a
dark Venus. Aud his opinion was also
that of the surrounding country, of the
city of Los Angeles, nnd the mission of
Suu Gabriel. The fame of the daughter of Garflas bud spread even amoug
the Americans, nnd when strnngers
asked to lie shown a beautiful Mexican, they were taken to the house of
Garflas, upon the outskirts of Soaora
town. So It mny be supposed that Itefugio had lovers. They enme from far
and near, and from every rank of California life. There was au American
whose fortune was vast nnd ns generously spent ns fortunes were In tbe early fifties; there wns nn Englishman
with a determination to have her at
any cost, even at that of a few llves—a
tendency of character which accounted
for his presence lu the States and for
his expatriation; there was a priest who
wus eating out his wretched soul for
her. nud who had so far fallen from
grace ns to hnve told her so; there were
Innumerable Mexicans, ranchers, shopkeepers, desperadoes, and gamblers. All
followed tamely aud suppllnutly lu Refugio's train.
But she loved only Mascavel. She admitted It at Inst to Senor Garflas, wheu
that wiry little creature demanded that
she make a choice. The senor was
aghast. The possibility of It had not
occurred to hlm.
"Antonio Mnsenvol." he suld. "But
you do not know hlm.''
Refugio uodded tier little head. "Sl,"
she snid.
"Where have you seen him?"
She was uot minded to tell of the
meetings in the willow-hidden bed of
the urroyo, so she held ber peace.
"But the mnn Is a bad character. He
Is a gambler."
Still Itefugio was silent. There must
be better arguments than faults, vices,
or crimes to bring ngnlnst the unanswerable oue thnt a woman loves.
Of this Senor Garflas became grad-
tuilly aware after he bad protested for
hours and for days, and after finding
that despite his prohibitions, despite
close supervision, bis fair daughter and
Mascavel were In constant communication.
Then he bunted out Antonio hlniBelf
where he sat pluylng at cards lu the
bar-room of the Lafayette, and he
pleaded with him, courteously uud respectfully, for Mascavel was a big
man and a desperate one. But he, too,
answered thnt lie loved, and wheu alt
was snid and done, It had gone no farther than this, that they both loved,
and that wisdom might stand aside.
Garflas weut with his baffled hopes
to Senor Vejar—the brother of Sola.
Thc house of Vejar—a two-ronied adobe
which had never been whitewashed—
stooil several hundred yards farther
north along the road thnn that of Garflas. lt was the last one before the
open country, nml had no neighbors.
Senor Vejar wns much younger than
Gurllus. He tmd the same mighty brow
nnd powerful mouth thnt made his sister hideous to a nice that loves all
things gentle nud gracious. He was
one of those who pined for Refugio, but
her father did not know this. So he
told hlm the whole story of his thwarted will ami plans, nml Implored advice
as be mnde a cigarette.
"If It were not for tlie cursed laws of
(be tirlngues; If things were as they
woro in my youth) 1 could force my
own daughter to marry the   mau   i
pleased," he said.
Vejar shook his head. "Vou can not
do tlmt," he answered.
"What, then, shall I do?" Garflas
was moved to the point or tears. They
hung on bis long black lashes and dropped on his old blue overalls.
The situation wns too complicated to
be set straight iu a moment. It was
not simplified by Vejar's having bis
own suit and chances to consider. "I
can not advise you nt once," he said: "I
will think and will help you, If I can, In
the morning." He took counsel wttb
his sister when Gtu fins hnd ridden
"Oh!" snarled Soln, "the love of Antonio! A thousand dollars would bury
It so deep that It would ucver rise
"Vet," said her brother, not trader-
standing womnn, "you would be glad
to have It."
The deep eyes shone. She shrugged
her shoulders. "Ves, I would he glad
to have It. And I could hnve It for a
thousand dollars—perhaps less."
"At that cost you must be content to
go without It. What advice shall 1
give to Don Garflns?"
"How should I kuow? Let hlm see
lo his own troubles, and be glad that
your sister Is not so beautiful tbat yuu
have uo peace because of her."
It wns long after dark when a horse
stopped at Vejar's adobe. Vejar had
been asleep. He Jumped up and went
to the door. He had his finger oo the
trigger of his revolver. A man stood
under the broken-down rnmada. Before he spoke, the Mexican had seen by
the moonlight that he was a Gringo.
They talked together In low tones until
Sola Joined them, rubbing her eyes and
moving noiselessly, with her bare feet,
across the dirt floor.
"This man," said her brother, "Is an
American. He snys he bus ridden atl
day to get Into Los Angeles beforo
night, but his horse went lame. It Is
so bad now that he enn go no farther,
aud ho wishes to stay here until moru-
"Let hlm stay," suld Sola, not too
graciously. "He cau have my bed. I
cannot sleep."
Vejar grunted lu much contempt.
"Mascavel does not Ile awake for you,"
he suld.
Sola made uo answer. She accepted
the fact She put the American upon
the blauket-covered willow boughs that
she culled her bed. Her brother tied
the horse beside hts own In the roofless adobo outhouse, and fed It some
liny. He did nothing for Its lame foot.
Tlie suffering of a dumb brute Is a
matter of utter Indifference to a Mexican, when tt Is not cause for laughtr.
The American was a mere youth.
Sola saw thut when the patch of moonlight finally worked around to where
be lay. He was so still that she began
to think bu might be dead. So Bhe rose
from where she snt upou the floor, leaning agatust the wall, and went near to
Bee If he were breathing. It seemed
that he slept very lightly, for he started up, with his left hand upon his belt
and Ills right baud upon his revolver.
"Vou were bo still I thought you
might be dead," Bald Sola, lu her deep,
placid voice, full of the Indian sweetness of sound. He took his hand from
the weapon and lay back shamefacedly, lt was only a woman, a thick-set,
lazy, good-hearted Mexican, He bad
not been able to see her face, and he
did not kuow that the comfortless pallet was her bed. He turned on It aud
fell asleep again. But Sola was thinking, .bong after her brother was
dreaming In the next room sbe crouched, looking Into the darkness with her
great wide eyes—seeing nothing. And
in her brain ran the clink of the coins
as the young Gringo had put bis hand
to his belt. There was a purpose ln her
unflinching mind. That she debated It
therein wus due only to ber uncertainty as to how many coins had clinked,
ns to whether there were enough to
buy Antonio Mascavel. Five hundred
dollars would do lt—for a time. After
that he might kill her; or be might let
her live and go away with Refugio—
which would be worse. He 'was a
gambler through and through, and
none the less so because of being luckless. A few hundred dollars In actual
cash would present to him unlimited
possibilities of the wealth that It might
win. And there Is always the poor
chance, ln a woman's mind, thnt the
mnn may learn to love as she loves.
He might forget Refugio; or Bhe might
marry some one else.
Fifteen minutes later she went into
tho room where her brother lay upou
a bed like ber own. Sbe roused hlm
with her bare foot. Ho turned with n
sleepy grunt.
"Get up nnd come here," she suld.
She was uot a capricious creature, lt
was her way to do little, but that In
dogged earnest. So Vejar sprang up
aud went with her. She stopped beside tbe bed and pointed down to the
"I have killed hlm," she snid.
Vejar made uo answer. He did not
"I have killed him," she repeated.
"You take hlm away and bury him "
It fiashed upon Vejar that what hfs
sister snid wns true. He was frightened. He dropped dowu beside thc
body aud dragged It Into the streak uf
"Take care," Sola warned hlm; "If
there Is blood on the floor lt can be
Been. I cau burn the blanket that Is
ca the bed; ami no oue saw him come."
Vejar let the body full, and stood up
facing her. She could see the dreadful
light lu his eyes, but she did not care.
"Vou can turn his horse loose and lt
will never be known," Bhe said, Indifferently. "He had money. There Is
eight hundred dollars. I have counted
It. Autonlo will marry me for thnt."
Vejar struck her down with a blow
on the breast. She eat upon the floor as
quietly as tf she were basking lu the
sun, dreaming the eterual Mexican
"If you hit me again, I shall say thai
you did It. They would believe me."
Vejar stood thinking, with the bod}
and the woman at his feet. He knew
that Bhe was right The Grlngoei
would believe a womnn. It was thi
custom of the fools. She held bis lift
In her hard, broad hands, and sin
would give it for thu sake of thc soft
eyed gambler as calmly, as relentless
ly ns sho had given that of tbe bo-
between them.
He carried the body out and burled I

so skillfully that there were no tracei
of the spot. Then hu turned the hum

care that conjured up visions of limitless wealth to be won, Antonio Mas
cavel consented to take her and let tht
ungllded beauty of Refugio Garflas go.
Many Americana disappeared In
thoBe days, and were never accounted
for. It was so with the one who had
started from the San Fernando district
to Los Angeles, foolishly carrying a
large amount of gold in his belt—somo
said moro than a thousand dollars.
The sheriff and a posse searched and
did not And him; that was all.
Anto-ilo lived with Sola for a year,
and she wns happy—through no fault
of his. His luck turned, and he won,
with her nest-egg, the fortune he had
dreamed of. Having done so, he left
her and went across the border.
For a long time Sola mourned, sullenly and deeply; then—Vejar having
been killed at a round-up by ou enraged steer—she took up her abode
with Refugio, and became a devoted
and patient nurse to her children.
For Refugio hnd married the rich
American, and had long since forgiven
the defection of Mascavel and tho
woman who had caused It—Gweudolo/

Not long ago, a young and handsome
man was appointed as chief of one ol
the bureaus In a department of tha
French Government where women
clerks are In a large majority. From
the moment he assumed control Mr. X
was annoyed by hts feminine subordinates, who sought every -excuse to visit
him and lodge complaints or report
silly gossip about some of their number, ln desperation he appealed to tba
head of the department, but that functionary told him he must settle the difficulty himself or resign. The disturbances continued, aud seemingly the
young chief paid no attention to the reports snd gossip. But at the end of the
month he assembled his clerks and
read aloud to them a record of tbe complaints he had received and by whom
made. "1 do this," he explained, "with
the hope that as Boon as yon know of
what you are Individually accused, you
will endeavor to correct your faults and
thus aid me In making of this a model
bureau." He retired from the room,
leaving a crowd of Irate women wbo
were as angry at each other as with
him. Since that time Mr. X has not
been molested, and none of tbe clerks
are on speaking terms with each other.

But one evening, while Tatters, who
aad Just come in, was waiting for the
removal of Ills bridle, Phil, wbo was
ibead of btm, was the recipient of an
ipple from Mrs. D.'s hand, as sbe stood
talking to Mr. B.
A moment later Hie groom had removed Tatter's bridle, nnd nt once IiIb

Then Mr. B., niid after bim the

iurt because his mistress had given au
ipple to Phil before giving one to him,
ind he would not forgive the affront.

The humming sound itseir hy which

to the rapid vibration of tbe feuuile Insect's Wlugs as she tiles; and these vibrations tire found by means of n siren
(nn Instrument which measures the
frequency of the waves in notes) to
amount to about 11,000 lu u minute.
Tho mosquito's wings must therefore
move with this extraordinary rapidity,
which sufficiently accounts for the'difficulty we hnve Iu catching one. But
the higher and shriller notes of lhe

"The days preceding Christmas nre
punctuated ut intervals with the slinip
tones of firecrackers, merely to keep tho
world from forgetting tbut Christinas N
almost nt band," writes Julia Truitt Million of "Where Christmas is Like fc'ottrlli
of July," descriptive of Christmas scenes
and customs in New Orleans, in tbe July
Ladles' Home Journal. "One firecracker
at a time is set olf, for it is sinful tu
waste a whole bunch at once until Christmas eve. Every night tbe tumult III*
creases, a kind of jubilant applause iu
mild explosives, a mero intimation of
what is coming luter. Every business
bouse which can under auy pretense
'handle' fireworks, handles them by thc
ton. Even the windows of tbe grocery
stores are filled with them, for thc grocer
lias recognized that there are people in
Xow Orleans who may dispense with roast
turkey stuffed with trufiieu, but nobody
can do without fireworks. Tbere are
hundreds of children who never hang up
a stocking, hut every one of them would
think the world was coming to an end
if there were no fireworks for him on thc
one night of all the year."

dowry to some one else. Sometimes the
girl refuses to many the winner, in which

"Just afler President McKInley'a Inauguration he had hi-* relatives who were
in the city nt a family dinner at tbe

Hume Journal in an Illustrated anecdotal biography of the president, "lt was
a huge company and a very good dinner.
Dear old -Mother McKinley was there,
but she was not very talkative. She wai
too happy for words. But she kept a
sharp eye on Hie dinner, und no detail ol
it escaped her. She was impressed by
tlie quantity of cream served with the
fruit and coffee, for she looked up at her
sou  iu her sweet way and said:
"'William, you must keep a cow now*.'
"Some of the younger member-* of the
family party found it difficult to suppros--
■i smile, hut the president, with his usual
tad and grnclousness, replied:
" 'Vos, mother, we can afford to have .t
cow* now, and have all the cream we can
possibly use.'"
A V. it.)  lo Trnnniiort Milk.
An improved method of preserving milk
for transportation is stated to hnve de
veloped an Important new industry in
Sweden and Denmark. The milk is collected at a central station from neighboring farms, and is there pasteurized at
about 170 degrees Fahrenheit, after which
part of it is frozen at about 1"> degrees.
The blocks of frozen milk are placed in
stout, wooden casks, which ihey half fill,
sterilized milk being poured into the remaining space. The casks are then hermetically sealed, and, as they are perfectly full and kept cool by the frozen
masses, the milk cannot be churned into
butter in transportation, and may lie kept
in good condition for at least twenty day-.
This makes it possible for the Danes and
Swedes to supply even Knghtnd and
Frame with whole cargoes of milk.

It seems strange that a newspaper
representing uny community in South
Bast Kootenay would improve every opportunity tn publish something thnt
might tend to Injure another community
in the same district. And yet this is
wli:it the I'ort Steele Prospector is do
ing. We can hardly believe tbat Mr,
Grace would do a thing oflhiskindou
his own accord, but te probably led iuto
il by owners of property who imagine
that if another town in lhe district can
be pulled down, Fort Steele will be benefitted thereby. The idea is wrong.
What is good for one town is good for
another. The district is a winner, tuid
so will the towns in the district be winners. Fort Steele will progress, not by
uny eiToit ot' her citizens to injure Cranhrook, Fernie, or any other town in the
district, but on the merits of the country
tributary to it. This is the case with a 1
other towns in the district. We icgret
t ie necessity of calling attention to the
matter, but the persistence of the Prospector in this line left no oilier course
open. Wrangling belweeu newspapers
in the same district over the merits of
their respective towns is never productive ot any good, and we had hoped that
it hnd ceased in this district, but there
are times when forbearance censes to be
a virtue.
