The Secretary's report follows:
At this luncheon, tbe lirst of Us
kind that hus proved a success in
Cranbrook, it is not thc Intention of
tlie Council to Inflict the members
with details of the work done so far
during the year but to summarize as
much ns possible in order to give
each member present an intelligent
idea of what is being done for the
good of the district and Incidentally
for the good of each  member, not ^^^^^^^^^
only of the Board of Trade but  of  ship on the miner und prospector
country und our allies, beginning to
"stink In our nostrils" Is Neutrality.
In connection with this phase of his
subject Mr. Keyworth reud a poem by
Win. Watson, sent by Lord Fisher to
America upon the occasion of thnt
country requesting the FirBt Sea Lord
to send it a message.
.Mr. oJseph Ryan spoke on the New
.Mining act and proposed some changes
that tie claimed would work less hard-
the District ns well.
The lirst matter tuken up by the
Hoard during the present year was
tho passenger accomodation on the
Crow, This matter has been settled,
according tu our request, by the reinstatement of the Local. In getting
Ibis service we hud the hearty cooperation ot the Hoards of Trade of
Lethbridge and Kernie.
Another matte- taken up Is tbe
freight rate on grain between here
and Fort William. This matter Is
not yet settled but the committee is
working on it.

Tin* principle nntlerlying tlio recent
amendment to the Mineral Act is. that
the people m' British Columbia,
through its government, advances the
puhlic moneys for the furtherance nf
tin- mining industry upon thr understanding that th.* Qovernment takes a
share o! the profits .irisiiif- from cither
tin* operation or the sale of tho properties on which tin* public funds have
been expended. Thr* principle has
been estolod by all parties- and quite
rightly for ii Is n sensible policy in
overy sense of tho term. It was the
vigorous application of this principle
whicli constituted the driving power of
the aggressive policy of Qerman trade
expansion bo steadily pursued before
the wur, a policy which was driving
British and American trade to the
wnii iii every ono of tiie world's marts.
The German empire was a huge commercial organization hacked by tho
entire credit system of Ihe Gorman
nation. The Kaiser was as ready to
book an order for it million tons of
steel mils ns any commercial travel
ler for the Krupps. The (ierman cm
pire, In Bhort, "'as simly "nut Tor the
buslnoBs" and made no bones or
. xi uses whatever about It. Soon
after the outbreak of the war Great
Britain boldy adopted n similar policy
and now backs with ils enormous credit, and still greater prestige, enterprises like "Hritish Dyes. Limited"
and other companies specially formed tn combat Germany's former dnm-
Inenco in certain lines of the world1
business, To tlie credit of the present
Administration at Victoria be It said,
thai British Columbia is the first part
of tlie empire to fellow the lead of
thn motherland in making itself the
driving power behind lhe development
of onr mineral resources,
Judging from tho reports of the
discussions on the Bill in the Provincial House it would appenr that the
public money may ho advanced for
diamond drill examination nu claims
which, In the opinion of the Government mining engineer, warrant Bitch
an expenditure, if. say. $r.,OflO be expended iu this elans of work, the
property on which il is done Ih
(■harped with $10,000 plus 0 per cent
interest, and this sum mnl lutorei i
affect tin* property as would a mortgage. Mining properties best adapted
for diamond drill exploration are
those when- the ore bodies nro exceptionally large. They are. therefore,
the class most attractive to Investors,
and they are also of tho class In
which the percentage of fallun s is tho
low.'St. Assuming that this view ho
correct It would appear unreasonable
to charge 100 per cent plus a further
six per cent on tho money advanced
even when we iillow fully for thc
failures which are hound to be encountered.
It Is difficult to understand why the
principle is made to halt at diamond
drilling when for the one claim suited
to that class of examination there aro
twenty thai can be better developed
by the old system of tunnel, shaft nnd
cross-cut. With a view to working
out that Idea it has hen strongly
urged on the government thai a real
mining engineer not a professional
pessimist with the motto "My own safely first" printed on the inside of his
hat- should be appointed for ench
Mining Division whose duty it should
he to personally oxamlne each claim
recorded, and whose further duty it
would he if tho claim appeared to be
a deserving and promising one. tr,
recommend an advance of the public
money for its development; this do-
velo-i ment to bo carried on according
to tbe plan and under the direct supervision of the local englneor, nnd
the public money expended for the
actual work by the cheques of the
Gold Commission or Mining Recorder.
This system would, manifestly, kill
the chance of even the smallest kitten
of a wild-cat breed showing its snout

\V.* wish to again emphasize our
desire to make the t'ranbrook Herald

The Board of Trade luncheon held
at the Cranbrook i lotel on Wednesday, is a step in the right direction—
nnd the splendid attendance should encourage the Executive to repeat the
experiment later on. An active Board
of Trade can accomplish much for
the good of the district and it behooves all who have the welfare of
the district at heart to fall iu line and
join tli'1 Board of Trade,
Wc ure pleused to note Hint the

of placing cinders across muddy roadways. Fully twenty feet of real cinders now connect the sidewalk north

it is admitted, of course, that the

things   to   be  desired   in   connection
with Its application.   While favoring
protection,   The   News-Telegram   has
always been of the opinion  that  the
average Canadian tariff is about forty

them from putting down iu their own

that tiiere is good reason for a revision of tiie tariff downward, oven
though free trade is out of the question. That being so, we think thfl wise
plan on the part of the farmers would
be to revise the tariff plank In their
platform. There are net many out-
and-out free traders in Canada; but
there are very few people who bave
any defence for tlie present high tariff.
With the Western farmers on tiie one
hand demanding free trade, anil the
Kastern manufacturer:, demanding
high protection, the real desires of
the great mass of moderate-minded
people and the ideal fiscal system
for a country like Canada are being
defeated. There Is a splendid opportunity, just at this time, for tlie whole
Western people to get toge! her aud
form a Western party tl at will make
its Influence felt in parliament. But
to make that influence felt, our demands must be reasonable and of a
kind that will appeal for support to
other parts of tlie country. And. If
one of those demands is for a lower
tariff instead for free trade, as the
Western farmers would attempt to
force it. wi' would get other support,
and it would be a source of strength
to the whole cause of Western Canada,
aud enable us to secure many reforms
that we sorely need, but which are being indefinftotly postponed because
of an attitude with respect to the tariff
for instance, tluit does not appeal as
reasonable to the people in other parts
of Canada.
