That and a Telephone Exchange, Which
Is Now Assured.
A Five-Hundred Light Plant Will
Be Sufficient for Present
Frogress still marks the day in Cranbrook. As the metiopohs of South Kast
Kootenay she is constantly striding onward and upward in all that tends to the
upbuilding of a mederu town.
Last week it was The Herald's pleasure to announce that a large sum of
money was to be expended on the improvement of Cranbrook's principal
street, as well as in minor improvements
on lesB important thoroughfares; also to
state that a telephone exchange would
be soon established.
In a few days the street improvements
will be in progress; so, also, will the installation of the telephone exchange,
upward oi 50 subscribers having been secured, and you can *' hello" to your
neighbors—or mauy of them—all over
town in a short time, thus saving time
and shoe leather.
Now Ibe Electric Light.
And now comes the electric light.
The formation of this company is now
a u assured fact, and so is the installation
of a 500 light electric plant as soon as
the apparatus can be put on tbe ground.
The plans are nearly completed, $4,000
in sight for tbe work, and if more should
be necessary the company kuows where
to put its hands on it.
Orders for the plant have been placed
before tbis time, and but few weeks will
elapse before the telephone will be supplemented by the electric light.
While it has beeu an ''open secret"
for some time tbnt this company was in
process of formation, it has been deemed
better not to give the matter newspaper
publicity until it bad reached a stage
where there would he uo such thing as
a failure in organisation.
It leached that point two or three
weeks ago, when W P. Dickson ol Nelson, a thorough nnd reliable electrical
engineer, was selected to fill thc position
of superintendent,
Tlie temporary oflicers of the company are Pr. King, chairman of the board;
W. K. Gurd, secretory nnd treasurer; J.
Ryat), George Bremner and Malcolm
Mi** In lies.
It will be seen by the list of officers—
who are typical of thc members of the
company—that il is composed of the
most responsible and energetic citizens
of this "goaheadttive" town, and the
success of the enterprise has therefore
always been a foregone conclusion.
The power, for the present, will be derived from the plaut of the Cranbrook
Lumber Company. In course of time,
as iuerea-jed power 19 required, or circumstances may demand, a power plaut
for tbe sole use of the company will be
installed.   ___^

Last Saturday eveuing T. I.. Le Pan,
with the Canadian Bank of Commerce at
Fort Steele, was Btricken wilh convulsions and liecame unconscious, remaining in that condition until Tuesday.
Mr. Le Pan had been 111 the day preceding, but neglected securing proper
medical attendance until too late to do
anything about it himself. Alter being
nttaked by convulsions friends telephoned for Dr. King, who immediately
wenl to the sick man. The sufferer be
ing|uuable lo give any information, tbe
doctor was obliged to work on supposition nud diagnosed lhc case ai one of
urcuic poisoning, and proceeded upon
tbnt line, which at the present lime seems
(0 hnve been correct. Le Pan Is doing as
well ns could be expected, but the outcome cannot be told.

Because Twenty-Five Meu Are Uld Olf at
J Winnipeg aad Fart Wl'llsm   500 Quit.
Winnipeg, Aug. 4 —The machinists,
boiler-makers and fitters employed by
the C. P. K. in shops at Winnipeg, Fort
William and other divisional points west
to the Pacific coast went out on alrike
this morning to the number of about 500.
On Tuesday last about 25 men were
discharged by the company owing to, the
oftlcials explained, tbe preseut prospect
of hard times and the small amount of
work that would naturally follow with
the reductiou iu traffic. The officials
pointed out that with ouly a half a crop
in the province there would he ouly half
the freight shipments, aud following this
shortage there would be a corresponding
falling off in the imports—in fact they
claimed lhat the latter was already noticeable.
Against tliis the men's case as presented, is as follows: "At a meeting hold
Wednesday night of a committee composed of boiler-makers, machinists,
blacksmiths and allied mechanics, it was
resolved that the reduction of the staff
was a direct blow by the com, any
against the union uuder false pretenses
of a decrease in business; that the company ignored whatever overtures were

The Daily Times, of Victoria, in its
Saturday's issue publishes the following:
" W. W. Doble and R. G. Shier, passengers by lhe Signal to Seattle from
Nome, are at tbe Victoria, They left
the far Norlh on July 23d, alter taking
thither a quantity of merchandise,which
they disposed of at a fair profit,
"They tell an interesting story of the
conditions of the country lhey are well
satisfied at having left behind. They
give, as others have dene, a very gloomy
picture of the Nome mining camp. On
the beach tons of machinery lie piled up
where it had been landed from the steamers and where it is likely to lie for all
lime to come, for the beach has beeu
worked out long ago and neither the
owners or transportation companies will
ever find it a paying investment to move
it again.
" Messrs. Doble & Shier bave been all
over the Nome district and state that
there is very little mining now being
done, Ihecreeks and gulches where alone
the precious metal is fouud being almost
dry now because of tbe lack of rain.
There are now between 25,000am! 28,000
people at Nome, and of this number
there are at least 4,000 or 5,000 completely oul of employment and iu dis*
tressed circumstances, Others in poor
straits are making a little and will perhaps be able to get out of the country
on the big barge Skookum, which is being advertised to sail for Seattle. Fares
on this monster craft have been fixed at
$10 for tbe trip, and it is probable that
over a thousand people will take passage.
Many, however, will be left, who in the
opinion of Messrs. Doble and Shier will
be obliged to receive government assistance hefore leaving the country, for those
strauded now will find it exceedingly
difficult to live through the rigors of
winter. Wages at present are very low,
the best pay on tbe creeks being J*,**, per
day and board. Canadian money is
mostly in circulation, yet despite this
fact the banking institutions are charging a 10 per cent, discount and are doing a tremendous business.
" As for the lawlessness of lhe country, Mr. Doble reports tbat crime is continually going 011 and is likely to increase when lhe season changes. At
present it Is all day at Nome, and this
serves as a kind of protection against
the notorious work of highwayman and
criminals, Still this class has things
pretty much their own w»y. Only a few
days hefore the two men left a bold robbery was committed. A tent was cut
open, the sleeping occupants were chloroformed and relieved of some $700.
"Mr. Shier met Mr. Charles Jones of
this city on the beach just before leaving the north. The latter had recovered
from an attack of fever and pneumonia
nnd was clerking for a transportation
company. Small-pox was well in check,
hut pneumonia was still very prevalent
at Nome. Arrivals from Dawson, it was
stated, were not allowed to return up
the Yukon, nnd tbis regulation is causing a great amount ol hardship, although
benefitting possibly the ocean transportation companies.

Flushed with bis wordy victory in the

over the Nelfon sti ike, the relations between the two weie somewhat strained,
and from a wordy to a peiaonal encounter the trouble proceeded, till Tolmle

In thc Pt-se-ncee of Many Guests at
thc Knox Presbyterian
Yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, many
finely-dressed people thronged the street
lending to the Presbyterian church, the
occasion being the uniting in tbe bonds
ol wedlock of Miss Hattie May O'Dell
and Arthur Wi ight Mooney, two of
Cranbrook's most estimable young people.
A look in the church just before the
ceremony revealed the chancel, organ
snd windows handsomely decorated by
mi ma 1 t potted plants of many varieties, and ;i large audience composed of
Craubrook society's most prominent ladies and gentlemen.
At the appointed hour lhe Wedding
party arrived, and to the sweet (.trains of
Mend-dssohn's wedding march took its
place before Rev, W. G- W. Fortune,

Mr. John T. lieuson, stationary engineer at the iiidley Oollego Ht. Callm-

of the ciiy. Por years Mr. Beuson
suffered acute agony from Bolatioo, aud
notwithstanding mimtrous forms of
treutuicnt, found littlo or no relief, until ho begun the use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. Theso pills speedily restored his health as they have doue
that of thousands of otheis who have
given thom a fair trial. Tn the reporter who interviewed him, Mr. BeuflOU
said: "I certainly owe a debt nt gratitude lo Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills fnr
they havo released me from a foim of
torture that had afflicted me almost
continuously for twenty years. The
pain began lirst iu my hack, then shifted ta my hip, and Ihenoo down my
leg. It beoame .-to severe that it seemed
as though the very marrow iu my 1 ones
was being loalded, anil at limes 1
eould n*,nvi-ly repres-* otying iiloud
from the agony I endured. 1 tried all
sorts of liniments and lotion***, bul got
no lolief. 1 doctored with several
physicians, even fining to lUillulu lur
(ivatment hy a specialist there, hut iu
no case did I ever iiveivo more than
temporary relief.,   it   may  ho easily
imagined that Iho pain I endured told
upon me iu other ways uud 1 hi eame
almost a physical wreck. Ai times my
right log would swell to nearly twice
ily normal llie, Then Iho pain and
HWelling would shift In   my   left   leg,
and tlio agony was something awful,  i
nil yn-r that during the period 1 was
nlllieted 1 have hundreds nf limes laid
nu my hack on the Iloor wilh my foot
uud !■ j; elevated nu a chair in order ta
obtain tdight enie from lhe pain i on*
diui'il. Tho muscles ami sinews in my
legs lookod as though they had twtltod
and tied iu knot*-*. Tho trouble went
on in this way until II mil l.v nothing
hut opiates VVOUld do.idou Iho pain. A
fow years ago 1 read ef a cure iu a
nil Hilar ease through the nee of Dr.
Williams' Piuk Pills und do titled to liy
them. I'm snnio time alter 1 began
their use I could uot see that they
were helping me, hut I decided tint
1 would give thom a fair trial. Py thu
tlu.0 I had used a half dozen ho.\os,
tin re was a decided improvement in my
ouso, ami I continued tho use of the
pills until I had taken twelve boxes,
when I felt my cure was complete, Several years havo since passed aud X have
hail no return of the trouble, so thut I
feol safe in saying that tbo cure has
been per ma nent.
I may also add tbat my wifo has used
the pills foi indigestion, heudiichet* nnd
di/./.inesH, nud has fouud great benetlt;
from them. Words cannot express tho
great benefit Dr. William-.' Pink Pills
have been to mo, and I hope similar
onfftrers will profit by my exporieuceH."
Dr. Williams' Piuk Pills euro by
going to tho root of the diseuso. They
renow aud build up tbe blood, and
strengthen tho nerves, thus driving
disease from the system. If your doaler

It is a stool of oats over six feet In
length, well filled with grain; it is part
of a crop raised by William Hamilton

they enn be successfully produced. The

It is "a good thing"—thc millions of
dollars poured into China in years past
by Christianizing associations of the various civilized nations—while thousands
and millions in their own lauds have at
all times lacked sufficient food and clothing; it has already resulted iu the most
shocking slaughter of thousands of those
who were so un'arluna'e as to have been
converted, will be followed, probably, by
the loss of the lives of more thousands
of white soldiers and the entailment of
hundreds, It may be thousands, of millions of dollars of indebtedness upon
present and future generations, all in
payment for tbe glorification of God
and the desire of the various Christian
sects for aggrandizement.
If you see tbe name of a businessman
attached to au advertisement iu Tbe
Herald, whether he be from Cranbrook
or some other town, you may be sure
that that man (firm or company) is live
energetic and progiesi-ive, a business
man who knows he has something tbat
the public needs and wants, is desirous
that the public also should kuow It, and
is desirous of your patronage. If your
patronage is not worth asking for, it is
uot worth bestowing on the business
uian who does not solicit it. The columns of Tbe Herald will always show
you who considers your p-ilronage worth

trade. Watch its columns closely and
