Ilis Position.
Fred Stork, one of the well known
citizens of Fernie and a member ol ihe
license board up io ihe close of ihe year,
rightfully   resents   the   rumors  floating
over the diitrlct regard!ug the actions uf
tbe bourd and writes The Herald defining his position. Mr. Siork writes a
manly, straightforward letter and voices
the sentiment ofthe Herald. Mr. Stork
is a business man of Fernie whose reputation for integrity and lair detiliug has
been recogn zed by the people. Ue co-
incideB with the views of The Herald
when he says that the position of license
commissioner is one of honor and lhat
men holding such positions nre above
anything that is not honorable. The
Herald has maintained this position
from the time these reckless statements
were first circulated. The Herald believes in official integrity and will continue to do so until convinced otherwise.
Mr. Stork has declared himself mul The
Herald congratulates him on the stand
taken aud prints his letter with great
pleasure:
Fernie, 11. C, Jan. 22, 1902
Editor Cranbrook Herald'
Dear Sir: I have read your editorial
of January 23 and carefully noted your
remarks in reference lu certain rumors
current in the dislrict 111 regard to the
actions of the Hoard of License Commissioners, The position of license commissioner is purely an honorary appointment and may be construed as a liibute
to a man's honor aud integrity, and I
must sav Mr Rdtt-« ti-«* 1 f*-' s"--*-y
mortified to learn thut the hoard is
charged wiih being controlled by certain influences and that large sums of
money are necessary to sicuie licenses.
I feel deeply grieved that the good name
of the board should be assailed In this
manner but now since the mutter has
been brought up by your paper I take
this oppoituuily of demanding that any
man with a grievance come right out
and ventilate it, I would he pleased to
see an investigation il there is anything
to be exposed that will show corruption
on lhe part ol the board. 1 am under
no man's control. 1 am not dictated to
on the board by any powtr other than
my own conscience, and tt bus been my
earnest endeavor lo do whul is fair and
equitable, and therefore I eay if there is
or has been anything of u crooked Mature going on in the graotlug of licenses
by all means let a searchlight hi* turned
ou and Ut the mniter be thoroughly Investigated mid may deepest disgrace be
the portion of the guilty.

PRODUCTION IS LARGELY INCREASED
Material Evidence oi the Wonder
lui Prosperity of Canada's
Best Province
SOME   FIGURES   THAT   LOOK   QO0D
The bureau of mines al Victoria has
issued a bulletin signed by -V. F Robertson, provincial mineralogist, giving the
mineral output of the province for the
year 1901, as follows :
"This estimate is based on the actual
returns of a number of the mines, and
for those mines from which returns have
not as yet been received, the output is
based upon their approxininle known
tonnage for the last year, together wiih
the assays of the ores from the same
mines for the previous year. You will
note that these are not given as final
statistics for the year, wl iei: can only
be obtained after all returns nre iu and
checked very carefully. These will be
included in the annual report of the department which cannot he out for about
two mouths yet. I hand you these figures now rather than wait for the final
statistics, as 1 believe tbe prompt publication of even an approximate official
estimate, making so good a showing,
ill be of benefit to the province, and is
generally desired by investors in uur
mines,
"1 think you will find Ibis estimate
conservative, and very approximate,
quite sufficiently so to show lhe progress which has been made in the lining iuduslry during Lhe past year. In
calculating the values uf the products
the usual course has been followed and
the average price for the year in the
New York metal market has beeu 11 Bed
as a basis. For silver 95 per cent, and
icuo y.* p«ii iv,.t .■( .*>. .:. -. rkei price
has been taken. Treatment and ore
charges have not been deducted Roughly-speaking the increase made in 1901
over 1900 is 25 per cent on gross value ol
output of tbe province. This will be a
very agreeable surprise to many, as the
circulation of reports giving a contrary
impression hap caused a very despoudetil
view to be taken of the progress of tbe
milling industry during 1901, which does
not seem to be warranted by the tacts.
There is an appreciable drop iu the
placer gold production, owing to tbe
sudden melting of the snow last spriug,
causing freshets, and leaving a shortage
ot water during the latter part of the
season.
"The tonnage of ore mined from the
lode mines in the past year is about 871 -
83a tons, equal to an increase of 317,036
over the year 1900, a little more thai; 57
per cent. There has been an increase in
tbe output of all the metals with the exception of lead, the low p'.ice obtainable
in this province for lead ores having discouraged this class of milling except
where accompanied with good silver
values. The gross value ol the copper
output has increased 200 pur cent over
19m, while the lode gold has increased
36 per cent and silver 14 per cent.
"The attached forms show lhe estimated production ofthe various metals and
for the various districts :
The Marvsville Smelter.
J. L, Austin, generul superintendent of
the Marysville smelter construction, arrived in tbe town Monday from Spokane,
He has been purchasing machinery for
the smelter ami left Tuesday for Marysville     Speaking of the work Mr. Austin
said: "Everything is moving along
nicely and iu a few days cur loads of
machinery  will  be nrrtviug,     Nearly
everything hns been secured and now it
is only a question of labor and lime
when tbe smelter will be ready to blow

Arrangements are being completed

Solos in her usual pleasing manner, and
the Misses Magee excelled themselves ill

is musical talent is concerned, holds a
position seldom equalled by a town of
her size. Mr. Gurd was chairman, and
in his opening remarks stated that iu
the future il was the intention of the
organization to bold their ladies' evenings as often as circumstances would allow, nud to make them occasions to be
looked forward to with pleasure by the
ladies of Cranbrook. Refreshments

Carroll Kn-re bnd gouo io the l-'ruuch
bul innsquu. It was nil very wearisome
iu him. lie bnd been to dozens of such
baits before, nml he wondered now
what he had eonw tor. It was uut as It
had been \vheu hu was a buy. It was
nothing but u nuisance, and yet he
Hiuid, wearied nnd disgusted, yawning
until the tears emtio In his eyes, wishing himself elsewhere and lingering
nbout in dreary Isolation. j
There came ot a sudden a sigh, a
long, quivering sigh, almost a sub. Carroll wns startled, but he made no sign.
There was some one iu tho box, nfter
ull. Without moving his bund ho flashed a glance through the grating out of
the corners of his eyes. There was a
woman p-ittlng there, quite close to
him, She meat have moved from the
buck of tho box since he had come, for
be wus certain that she was not there
when he took his sunt.
She evidently had not noticed blm
and believed herself unobserved. In bis
brief glance Carroll hud seen that she
wore a black domino and mask of tbe
plainest kind; that her hands were
clasped In her lap. uml that she appeared to lie looking at the duilcei's,   Tbey
could not see bur, ho thought.
He stole auothar look ut her, uud us
he did su she sighed again- n sigh of
weariness and pain. Then she moved ■
and, taking up a fan in her lap, begun
io noiselessly fan hersolf. The Bap of
her mask moved iu thu faint winnowing air made hy the fan, rose a little,
then fell. Suddenly, at a wider sweep
of the fan, the flap curved upward lu
a deep wave, and Carroll saw a portion
of a smooth, pale cheek, the corner of
her iiiuuih, and near it, townrd tho
.-hill, u small brown mole,
Almost simultaneously she raised bur
eyes  and  snw   him  looking ut  Iter '
through the grating.   Shu dropped the j
fan and made a grasp at thu edge of
tbo mask,   Through tho two slits for i
lho eyes Carroll saw hers, and, though
he could not lull whether ihey were j
light or dark, he saw that they Mere I
full  of terror.    The thought  Hashed '
through his mind. "1  will know her !
again," and hu  knew  Unit she had j
thought the same of him.    Thu next i
instant she had  withdrawn  into the i
Imck of tlio bux,   Carroll went bomo '
wondering about hoi'.
A few evenings later be went to a
dinner at thu house of a fashionable
lady who wan a relation uf his. Just
before dinner she came to him uud
said:
"Carroll, 1 have a favor to ask of
yon. My niece, Helen, a llttlo country
Iiikh, is in tuwn for tho winter, lo stay
with bur brother, who iy going to colli go. she I* under my wing and is
very young nud bashful. 1 am going
to ask you to take bur lu tu dinner aud
be Kind io her. Shu has seen so little
of society. She was here a moment
ago, but has run nwny again for something ur other. I will Introduce you
to her when she comes back."
Carroll assured her that he would
be delighted, wl Ich liml mure truth
In it Uuin such remarks usually have.
It would be less trouble to talk to a
young miss like this than to u more
tried veteran, und If she couldn't talk
ho could eat his dinner in peace and
kd lur preserve the sllouca so dear to
iho debutante,
Presently, in tho tnoveraont and well
bred shuttling of a dinner cortege getting under way, a young girl wus given

looked about the table, smiled ut u lady

bis lung mustache with his mipl.tn, he
looked at his companion. Sho wus sitting with her hands in ber la]), her

of bcr mouth toward the chin was a

"What were you doing at the masked

THE DARING OF "GAT"   HOWARD.
Incident   of   South   Afrfran   Wur   Whieh
Showed a Hitn or W-mderful Nerve.
Major T. L.  Doulangcr, who
brother—bad gone. It was too late to riVL'(1 here from the Orient, recently,
find him, uud anyway he would bavo
only got angry with me. Ho says I am
always Interfering. But It Isn't that.
There ure only us two, and we have
to lake cure of each other. I must
take cine of him nnd be of me. I knew
it was a wrong place fur him to go,
hut he wns already gone. So I had to
go after him. It would be different
If be was nut so young, and he's lived
In the country all his life. And then
to suddenly come to the city, and ho
forgets about the money—that we've
only Just got enough. Perhaps—I'm
afraid thul he doesn't seem to know
very well bow to take care of himself
like the others. Hut they've lived In
tho city all their lives, und so It ls different."
She paused and looked at him with a
sort of pleading apology for tbe weak
buy.   Then she went on:
"I've come from our home to take
cure uf him. The others have mothers
and brothers, but he bus only me. It's
bard tu keep from making blm angry
and yet to look after him, and so 1
went wlili my old nurse. I knew If I
could Und blm I could bring blm back
with me. We gut the masks and doml-
nos from a man near the door who
bad them to hire. Then 1 went iuto
thnt empty bux and waited till he
came by, because there was such ■
crowd, and the people couldn't see me.
Soon after you bnd gone be passed,
and then 1 culled to blm, and he came
uud we went home."
She hesliuled and Btoppod, then said
hurriedly;
"When 1 saw you tonight, I knew
you Again, and 1 thought you would
know me. 1 run up stairs and put this
piece uf cuurlplasler on the mole. I
wus afraid of your knowing me. 1
was afraid you would think badly of
UO for being there."
She was lute mi pled by the rising of
the ladles. As she turned to go she
putn-ed and, Linking at him with wistful Inquiry, said:
"Du youV"
He looked nt ber without speaking,
but shook bis head.
As the men settled back Into their
chairs one of them, noticing Carroll
still standing gazing vacantly at a window opposite, cried laughingly;
"Look nt the sentimentalist lost In
cuntemplntlon of the stars!"
Carroll started nud, taking bis seat,
answered quietly:
"Yea, I've been looking at a star."

whore in the history of thu whole of

"Galling Oun'* Howard, who gained such fume during the Iliei rebellion, und who wns shot a few
weeks ago while out scouting, wus
the hero of the incident. At thu
timo he wus attached to n small
body of the British, and wus on tho
Orange lllvor somewhere—the exact
location Major Boulanger did not
recall—when tho command wus surrounded by Boors. The British wore
partially protected by entrenchments, but so hotly wore the Boers
pressing thai the British considered
It necessary to retreat. Howard
nlono remained, lie wus urged by
his command to follow, but he refused, and for upwards of twenty
minutes, Alujor Boulanger says, he
held the enemy at bay until relief
came. He hud but two Colts In his
service, but worked these wiih such
rapidity and so effectually, that tbe
Boers, probably Ignorant of the real
character of tho stronghold, were
held In check, When reinforcements
came Howard received tho hearty
congratulations of fellow officers,
, who, one nnd all, wore amazed ut

of the plucky fellow.     Hud   ho lived

he would have been highly promoted,

Chnrleningno Laurlor, the representative of L'Assnmplion, is the half-
brother of the Premier—the sume father, but child ui a lirst wife uf

the only son by the second wife.
Charlemagne Laurier is io yours
older than his distinguished half-
brother, nnd he looks it, says Tbo
Tort,uto Star. He is one of the silent
ones; a regular attendant at tho sittings, but an Uncommunicative one.
There he sits in his scut, day afn-r
day, his Iron-gray hair barely discernible behind the heads of ilm
other occupants of tho Opposition
benches, taking no part in Lho discussions and going and coming so
quietly us ordinarily to attract little,   if any,   notice.   It   is   interesting
to wonder sometimes what Charlemagne Laurier thinks nbout it nil.
Uhut fancies puss through tlio busy
brain beneath that iron-gray ihutch?
Does ho ever meditate on lho tricks
fate plays upon ber mortal puppets?
Does he ever envy ihe distinguished
brother su near to him by blood lies,
so fur above him In the political
world? fioi-s ho ever wonder at tho
purtlallly of ihe ficklo goddescj who
luuk.-s one brother the lirst Commoner in nil tho land and of lhe other un
obscure, silent, buck bencher? Boca

Is as genial as to tbo oilier members, probably inure so, but lhe I'n-
mhir of Canuda makes no display of

budget debate,   the Premier crossed
over to the Opposition side und wun-
derod up through tlio labyrinth uf
seats to where his half-brother wns

caressing motion on the older mini's
shoulder, while with the other ho

HY HJtlKNSTJIMIMi BJ0RSSII\.
From the time thnt Aalang won quite
grown up there was uo longer any
poace or quiet nt Uiisnby. In fnct, all
tho liiiinlsi.iiiifKt young follows In the
Tillage did nothing but flgjtf nnd qunr-
rel night after night, nml it wns always
worse on Saturday nights. Afllnilg'S
father, old Canute Ilusnhy, never went
to bod on those nights without keeping
on at lenst his leather hreechea nud laying a good slum birch stick on the bod
beside him. "If I have such n pretty
daughter," said old Canute, "t must
know how to tulte care of her."
Thor Nesset wns only the son of a
poor cottager, and yet folks snld that It
was he who went ofteucst to visit the
farmer's daughter nt Husnby. Of
course old Canute was not pleased to
hear this. Ue said it was not true;
thnt, at any rate, he had never seen
him there. Still, they smiled nml whispered to each other that If he only had
thoroughly searched the hayloft, whither Ashing had ninny un errand, he
would have found Thor there.
Spring came, and Ashing went up the
mountain with the cattle. And now,
when the heat of the day hung over
tho valley, the rocks rose cool and clear
through the sun's misty rays, the cow
hells tinkled, the shepherd's dog harked, Ashing sang her "Jotlel" songs and
blew the cow horn, all the young men
felt their hearts grow sore and heavy
ns they gazed upon her beauty. And
on the first Saturday evening one after
the other they crept up the hill, but they
eil We down again qulchet than tlirj
lind gone up, for at the top stood n man
who kept guard, receiving each one
Mho oanie up with sueh a warm reception that be all his life Ions remembered the words that nccoinpunled tho action, "Come up hero again and there
will be still more In store for you!"
All the young fellows could arrive at
but one conclusion—that there wns
only one man in the whole parish who
had such lists and that man was Thm
Nesset, All the rich farmers' daughters thought it was too bad that this
cottager's son should stand highest In
Ashing lltisaby's favor.
Old Canute thought (he samo when
he heard about It all and said thnt It
there were no one else who could check
him ho would do it himself. Now,
Canute was certainly getting on In
years. Still, although he was past
Sixty, ho often enjoyed a gout] wrestling match with his eldest son whenever time indoors fell heavy ou bli
bauds,
There was but ono path up to the
mountain belonging to llusai.y, and it
went straight through tho farm garden,
Next Saturday evening, us Thor was
en his way lo the mountain, creeping
carefully across the yard, hurrying as
soon ns ho wus well past the farm
buildings, a man suddenly rushed nt
him.
"What tlo you want with inc." asked
Thor uml hit him such a blew lu the
fare tbat sparks dam-ed before his
ej es.

That was asIiuiu'h brother,
"Ami here's the hired mini," said old
[Canute ami attacked him also.
j The greater the danger the grentet

flllly, Me dived ami he ducked. When
cur a blow tell it missed blm. and '
when none exported It be would deal a

ou one vide. Iml Tor all that he got a
i.n ihiu thrash lug. old Canute said
nflurwnrd that ho hml never rough!
wiih a braver fellow.  They kept it tip |
111 blood begun to How. Then On link'
.'i it'll out, "Stop!"   Then he added In s '
croaking tone. "I r you can get up tu-ru
IW31 Saturday, in spite of Canute Husnby ami Ida men, tho girl shall lie
yours."
I'hor dragged himself home as best
ly could aud when he reached tho cot* j
i igo went straight to bed.   There wns
n great dent of talk about the tight up |
i i  Ilufuihy  bill,  but every  ono said, j
'Why did  he go there?"    Only  one
I. rsoii did not say so, and that was
A-hing.   She had hcen expecting Tluu !
i   it Saturday evening, but whon she I
hiitrd what had happened between him |
tt >l her father she mtt down ami cried
I Hotly and wild to herself, "if 1 may
n.it have Thor, 1 shall never have a
I   iipy day again In this world."
I'hor stayed In his bed all Sunday,
aud whon Monday came lie felt ho must [
Kiny on where he was.  Tuesday came, j
ii id It wus ii lovely day. Tho hills look- j
ul so fresh and groon.   The window
,V"is open, sweet odors wero wafted In,
tlio  cow bells   wore   tinkling  on  the
mountain, nnd far up above some out '
wna "Jodllng,"   Truly, If It hnd nol I

In  the  room,  he  could  havo cried.
Wednesday came, and still hestayud Iu '

Well again by Saturday, and Friday
found him on bis leg! iigutu. Then ne
thought of what Aslung's father bud
said, "If you can get up to her next
Saturday without being stopped by Canine ami Ida men, the girl shall be
yours." Over and over again he looked
up at ilusahy farm, "1 shall never see
uuollier Chl'Utmas," thought Thor.
As beforo mentioned, there was but
mi" path up to Ilusahy hill, but surely
liny Btroilg, able fellow must be able tu
get to It, even though the direct way
were barred to blm. For Instance, if
he were to row round tho point yonder
nml fasten bis hunt at the one side, It
might lie possible to Climb up there,
although it was so very steep that the
goats had great dilllctilty In Climbing
It. uml they are not usually afraid of
mountain work.
Saturday came, nud Thor went out
early lu the morning. Tho clay wus
most beautiful. Thu situ shone so
brightly that the very bushes seemed
allvo, Up on the mountain many voices
were "Jodllng," nml there wns much
blowing of horns. When evening came,
hu wus silting at his cottage door
watching tho steaming mist rise up on
the hills. He looked upward, All was
quiet. He looked over toward Husaby
farm, uml then be Jumped Into his boat
nnd rowed away found the point.
Ashing sat before the hut. Her duy's
work was done. Sho was thluklng Thor
would not come that evening ami thnt
therefore many others might come Instead, so she unfastened the dog and
without saying anything walked farther on. She sat down so that she
could see across the valley, but the
mist was rising there und prevented
her looking down. Then she chose
another pluce and without thinking
more about it sat down so that she
looked toward tho side where lay the
fiord. It seemed to bring peace to her
soul when she could gaze far away
across the water.
As she sat there the fancy struck her
that she was Inclined to slug, so she
chose a song with long drawn notes,
nnd far and wide It Bounded through
the mountains. She liked to hear herself singing, so she began over again
when the tlrst verso wus ended. But
when she hud sung the second It seemed to her us though some ono answered
from far down below. "Dear me, what
can that be?" thought Aslnug. She
stepped forward to the edge and twined her arms nround a Blonder birch
which hung trembling over the precipice nud looked down. But she could
see nothing, The fiord lay there culm
ami at rest. Not a slnirln bird skimmed
tho water. So Aslaug sat herself down
again, and again she began to slug.
Once more came the answering voice lu
the same tones and neurer than the
lirst time. "That sound was no echo,
whatever IL may be." Aslang jumped
to her feet and ngaln leaned over the
cliff, mid there, down below, at the foot
of the rocky wall, she saw a boat fastened. H looked like tt tiny nutshell,
for It was very far down. She looked
again and saw u fur cup nud under It
the ilgure of n man climbing up the
steep ami barren cliff.
"Who cnn it be?" Aslnng naked hf-r-
seir, nnd, letting go the birch, she step
ped back. She dared not answer her
own question, but well she knew win-
it was. She flung herself down ou tin
greensward, selziiin the grass with both
hands, ns though it were she who dared
not loose her bold for fear of fulling.
Hut the grass came np by the roots,
Slie screamed nloiid and dug her hands
deeper and deeper into the soil. Sh*
prayed to Qod to help him, but then It
Struck her that this feat of Thor*l
would be culled "tempting Providence,"
nud therefore he eould not expect help
from above.
■only just this one:" she prayed,
"Hear my prayer Just this oue time
und help him!" Then she threw her
arms round tbe dog. as though it wers
Thor whom she was clasping, and rolled herself 00 the grass beside It
The time seemed to her quite endless.
Suddenly thu dog began to bark.
"Ilnw   wow!"  said   ho to Ashing  uud
Jumped upon ber- nnd again, "Wow,
wow!" Then over the edge of the cllfl
u i-oarse, round enpe came to view,
nml -Thor was In her iirmsl
lie lay there n whole mlnilto, Slid
neither of theiti was capable of utter-
Ing a syllable- and when they did begin
to talk there wns neither sense not
reason lu anything they said.
Hut when old Cniiule lliisaby hoard
of it ho uttered n remark which hml
both sense innl reusoti. Bringing hll
list down on the table with a tremendous crash, "The Iml deserves ber!" lie
cried,   "The girl shall hu his!"

Flics are quickly drawn by scents
Imperceptible to human nostrils,
Still they do not feed wholly by
scent. Theii' feeding is throughout a
curious process, often involving
something which looks like reasoning power, If a. fly lights upon
something moist und high flavored
he at once begins tu suck tt. But
if in crawling or flying ho finds
something dry, which he yet fancies,
ho stops stock still, sets his bill
down upon it. and forces through
the bill a drop uf liquid, sumethiug
like suliva. After n little, When
tho liquid hns moistened what it
fell on, he begins feuding. It is tho
marks left by this manner of feeding which constitute u large part ot
the flyspocks good housekeepers so
loathe.
A fly litis an air pump     in     each
foot,  with a hollow running     down
tho leg    to    it, through which     air
goes in or out.    Thus he walks     us

Is one of the functions of the tailor. By his art he makei
up for deficiencies of shoulder, chest, etc. It is our business
to do that, and more. We not only make perfect fitting
garments which set off a good figure and improve a poor
one, but we put material in our suits which some tailors
would not think of selling at  less than double our price.

There Is a big tlematd fur lumber in
the territories east of here aud orders are
coming in 10 the mills in this neighborhood thick and fast. Those iu position
to knew predict a big business for the
nulla uh.ng ihe Crow's Nest Pass the
coining season. From present indications they will be able to get rid of all
the lumber they can cut at a better price
than they have ever received before.
Wilb this in view tbe mill men are taking time by the forelock nnd are getting
out a sufficient amount of logs for a
good long seuson's run. Messrs, Grant
& Sheady will take out iu the neighborhood of six million feet of logs this winter for the Moyie Lumber Ctmpany.
They hnve between sixty ami seventy
men and twenty teams employed iu this
work. Park. Mitchell Sl Co. have a log
ging camp established near Swansea and
w.Il take out more logs this season
than for any previous season since they
have been in the country. Such activity iu lhe lumbeiing business at a time
when the mines are closed means much
