Material Evidence of Prosperity and
Another   Convincing  Proof
This Is lhc Metropolis of
the District.
The large, recently built, handsome
mul modern hospitnl building ul the St.
Kugene Mission is la he abandoned—
thut is closed by the sisters of the Mission aud a uew one built by theui in
This enterprise is mow a fact, although
the undertaking hns been contemplated
for a loug time, nnd hns been delayed
ouly as such enterprises nre always delayed, for time in which to develop
ways ,and means for accomplishing the
desired eud.
It seems a great pity that the fine hospital buildings at the Mission will bave
to become practically useless for the purposes for which it wns designed, but this
is only one of mauy conditions incurred
by being unfortunately situated nway
from the railroad Hue.
Railroads change the maps of cou titties second ouly to wars. Old towns
are prnctically effaced from local maps
and new ones created by the iron horse
which speeds on the truck of steel.
Those who suffer by it ure lo be commiserated, and those who profit, congratulated, although it is often at someone else's expense. These conditions
are Irani of commercial strife, and always huve existed, if uot in one form, in
another, ever since Adam and Five---the
original clothing manufactures—went
into (or oul of) business in the Garden
of Eden.
Cranbrook, becoming Ibe mining and
commercial center—present and future—-
of South EaBt Kootenny, hns forced llie
good sisters from u business standpoint
to transfer the scene of their usefulness
as nurses nnd Good Samaritans from St.
Eugene Mission to Ibis place.
A beautiful site has been selected near
the baseball grounds, nnd there u 20-bed
hospital will be erected. A full description of lhe edifice can not be given at
the present time ns everything is not yet
perfected fot the erection ofthe building,
but sufficiently so to state that work will
lie commenced during thc present mouth.
Thnt it Kill be a credit to the sisters,
Crnnbrook and South Kast Kootenny
goes without saying.

A Fair-Sized Audience Addressed   By Ilia
Last Saturday Night.
11 was  Announced   liy   handbills last
Saturday that Thomas Forsler would
BddreSfl the people of Cranbiook on the
political issues of tiie day In British Columbia.
The notice given wns quite short* hence
tin.* audience in attendance was not as
large ns might have been expected.
Mr. Fonder was tit one lime engaged
in conl milling, is now a farmer and an
nble advocate of the laboting man's
lights. He was lln* speaker ofthe legislative assembly dining the last two sessions, lie is ti liberal in Dominion politics, but opposed ,to patty lines iu Provincial nil in*-. He Is ft candidate for reelection from his tiding—-Delta, in Westminster district.
The meeting was presided over hy A.
Leitch, a Conservative, having been requested hy Mr. Forster to net iu that ca
pactty, Mr. Eorstcr is evidently strongly opposed tu Mr. Martin, and he made
use of many good arguments, presented
in a clear nnd concise manner. His
talk throughout wns marked by nn absence of abuse and vituperative language
uud might well be emulated by others
tu iruking political addresses.
A Wise Move.
The following circular is being pre*
pared by Ihe fire wardens, and will be
served by Constable Morris. This is a
move in the right direction and the
sooner its requiieuieuts nre complied
with the better it will be for tbe welfare
of the towu:

I have been instructed by the fire wardens to uolify you thut you are required
to replace ihe pipes on your building sit-

Moyie Leader: Monday evening a
public meeting was held and McGregor
hall was packed. Amongst the assembly was a good sprinkling of Mineis'
Union men. Political matters wen-discussed qnlte freely. The general sentiment wus ttiat wbilethe people of Moyie
weie perfectly willing to support a labor
candidate, lhey were not favorably disposed towards the man the Miners' Union had selected. The name of I). I*:.
McDonald, another member of (he union, wus brought up. Mr. McDonald
was favorably spoken of and it was decided to limit a memorial ami hnve it
presented at the Fernie convention favoring his nomination. Thirty signatures
were appended, solely voters, and mostly busiuess men, nnd a few Miners' Union men.
Pernie Free Press:   A convention of
the organized labor in Soulh Past Koo
tenay met in secret session iu Fertile on
the 1st instant. The idea of the convention Was lo choose a candidate to contest the constituency at the coining election. We have beeu given several accounts of what occutred nt this convention, but tbe repoits are so much at
variance with each other we are unable
to decide which is the correct one. Tlie
prevailing opinion, however, seems to be
that nothing was done in the way of
choosing a candidate, whereas we have
been lold that tlie tacit understanding tn
not choosing a man was for Ihe purpose
of giving Hon. Joseph Martin lhe privilege of naming Ihe candidate. Ugly rumors have also reached us regarding
some of the delegates, rumois which we
consider unwise to repeat. We have also
been told thai the convention offered tbe
nomination to Mr. D. J Hlmi-i of Moyie,
a well-known miner of that town, and
that he refused it. Of one thing we nre
certain, and that is tliat Mr. Kluier
had a largely signed requisition from
the people of Moyie asking him to ruu
To offset this we have it from another
source that a counter petition to Mr.
Elmer's requisition was handed tbe cou-
vention. So complicated is the whole
affair we will express no opinion until we
have further investigated the matter.

The courert and dance given by the
ladies of Christ church at Porrest ball,
on Tuesday night was nn unqualified

Hill Continue lis Rapid Growth and
The North Star tramway has been
obliged to close down one and two days
at n lime frequently, of late, owing to
the branch being tillable—-through inability or lack of curs—to keep lhe bins at
the tramway free.
Tbe Herald reporter had heard rumors
of this nature before, and upon meeting
Mr. Cttrrau, agent of the North Star
company, in town yesterday, heinquired
if the minor was true and was given un
answer in the ufthmattve.
C. P R., Superintendent Cameron
was then sought. Mr, Cameron said

Therefore in view of the fact lhat the

will be doubled in n very short time

After the Papers Had Been Drawn
Up for and Signed by Would-
Bc Leasers,
If anyone has any doubt about the
future of Cranbrook as Ibe business
metropolis of Sooth Kast Kootenay, let
them analyze this "straw ihat shows
which way the wind blows."
It was announced in last week's Herald that lhe Port Steele Mercantile company was to build a two-bond warehouse
30x50 feet, with a fiie proof cellar the
full size ofthe building, just west ofthe
C P. R. freight house.
Manager Jake Fink, ofthe Ctaubrook
stoie, had drawu up plans, nsked for
tenders aud made every preparation for
beginning construction this week, only
waiting for the return of the lease from
lhe C. P R company's oflice in Winnipeg, The lease had been prepared l.y
the railway company, and properly
signed after being sent to various members of tbe Port Steele Mercantile company in different putts of British Columbia ami the United Slates,
Cut a surprise awaited the mercantile
companv and it arrived in the shape of
a refusal to grant the lease owing to the
phenomena] growth of Cranbrook. which
did uot justify tbe railroad company in
leasing any land in the immediate vicinity of the yards as tbe compauy itself
would need a!) tbe ground Ihere for its
own use.
Mr. Piuk says that there can be no
other reason than lhat advanced by the
company for finally refusing to sign tbe

thing lo fight tire with though. Wait
until the town is in ashes) Plenty time
Recently, In Revelstoke, an Dalian
named Dluardo, who lost a leg last June
while in lhe employ of the C P. R., became somewhat despondent antl attempted suicide by lhe use of a razor with
which he succeeded in badly slashiug
himself without having the desired effect.
There is much anxiety in Kaslo, says
the Kootenaian, regarding the   fate of
Bile Hrlcson and Pete Foss, two miners
ho lefl  there last  fall for Pear Creek
with ihe idea of working all winter.   Really a Pinlander arrived and said that
asnowsllda hud swept awav the cabin

Later news bas revealed the fact that the
cabin ol the miuers is covered with 60
feet of snow.

reading-room, are finished in ttrra-cotta,
«ith heavy gold bonier, lhe paper being

reading-room is in green ingrain, ihis
line of work being done in Pieper'sar*

The organization has set a very commendable example to citizens of South
Pnst Kootenay, Inasmuch as everything
in use iu tbe spacious rooms has been
purchased in Cranbrook,   If it was not
possible lo secure anything that was es
pedal ly needed, the next best ihing was
accepted in lieu thereof.
In addition to the regular catd room
there is one private card room, 'ihe

The question is continually asked:
Why is In-hind, with its exquisite "scenery and almost unrivaled beauty, neglected by the peripatetic SuxonV There
are, ur have been, invariably two methods of solving tlie problem, says the St.
James Uazettu. Tbe Saxon has
shrugged his shoulders and repeated
tor the thousandth time the old formula ubout tbe discomfort uml the excessively high tariil of'the Irish hotel.
Or, ou the olher hand, be may have remarked on the tlliatorlness of the Irish
railway train.
lt is not for ns to deny tbnt, to a
very conslifcrable degree, complaints of
this character havo been more thuu
justified) bul a recent uud rather extended experience of both these necessary adjuncts to the business of touring has revealed to us the fact that
such grounds «>f dissatisfaction are being rapidly nnd certainly removed. Ireland has at lost awakened to hor possibilities as a tourist resort which—
whether it be in sea, mountain, hike or
river scenery—rivals if it does not excel
Scotland and Wales. She is accelerating and improving her railway service; she Is opening* np new nltd—far
thc tourist—virgin routes; her hotel
phoprietora arc alive to the necessity
for materially changing their methods;
nnd, given these conditions, there can
be no possible reason in the world why
Ireland should nol obtain a fair share
of tbe holiday harvest which ut present is bestowed with bounteous hand
upon the continent.

cue of the oldest traveling men iu rhe

Reynolds has a ranch, ot which lie enjoys telling even more than he does ot
the experiences through which he has
passed during his half century upon

Cal. Tho chief product i.s honey. This
product i-s gained from two apiaries,
whieh Mr,  Reynolds visit,; every time
his business permits him to go to southern California.
"In my apiaries, which are cared for
by my sou," said he, "there ure 140
stands of bees. The honey season lusts
from April to July. This season my
bees yielded 40,000 pounds of honey,

13 by V inches. In these lhe bees make
or deposit the honey, a foundation of
wax having been tlrst placed iu each
frame by the beekeeper, so that the
bees muy have something to build Upon,
The huney is taken out of the frames
every other week during the honey seagull. While doing so there Is little need
of protecting the bunds. The bees seem
to be must inclined to sling one In (ho
face. So, as a precaution, liu- muu who
i_ removing the huney from the hives
wears a straw hat, from the brim of
which is hung a silk veil, like they have
to do up in the Klondike country to
ward off the summer mosquitoes.

"The queen is an absolute monarch

bee lives during the working season
only 45 duys. Voung ones arc being
hatched out all the time. A bee goes
to work at the tender age of three
days, and hustles like a veteran for
\'i days. Then it is just naturally all

queen lives longer, und when a young
queen comes into existence in the hive
ahe drives the old queen out. Her loyal

A group of men were talking in a hotel corridor uptown recently when a
mun with a dark beard and rather long
hair entered. The members uf the
group begun to scamper away Instantly, and it was a curious fact that nut
one  remained   to exchange greetings
with the natv arrival, although they all
knew him intimately.
Col. David I", llurbaugh, who came
from Ohio and knows President McKinley and all the big orators and
Malesmen, explained why it was that
lhey all avoided the man.
"That mun is u gentleman und u
scholar, but he te the most unmitigated
bote lhat ever wore out the patience
of his friends. He should read 'Dou't,'
which says: 'Don't afflict others with
yuur troubles.'   llut he cuu be cured."
"What is the remedy?"
"It is drastic and may result In unpleasantness at Ilrst, but some close
friend .should do it. I hud a friend
whose mania was talking about his
health. He louked strong, utc three ur
four meals a day, smoked big, black
cigars, and yet ute hypochondriacal
monologues were unendurable. Every
morning he cume to my ollice and fur

he sneezed before breakfast, what he
look to prevent a repetition of the
sneezing, huw he imagined that is on it*

and a lot of other things nut at all en-

about his alleged illness, 1 told him,
