the Itccreuttou Club held recently;
To the Members of the Craubrook

1 regret very much indeed Hint 1
cannot be present ut linn, our flrBt
annual meeting of the Cranbrook He-
creation Club, lt is hard at this distance to know and Judge wisely of
the immediate needs of our club, but
as far as I am able, I will give a resume or our work and progress since
our organization meeting in Januay,
1921. 1 shall review briefly our membership, our activities, our expenses,
our income, and then briefly again
our hopes in the way of improvement
for the coming year, wtlh a warning
here and there of pitfalls to be avoided.
As regards our membership, since
organizing in January 1921, we hare
52 family memberships, 39 single
memberships, fi2 junior memberships,
and 8 special nurse memberships, to-
.all'iig 161 members at date. In addition to this we have had 20 members
released with the consent of the
Board, while 51 have failed to fulfill
their obligations and were dropped
from our membership; ln all 242
members have passed through our
Our accommodations are very poor
for so large a membership—an extension must be added, for which we
have plans and tenders—hut more
of that later. As for the necessity
of making the membership by the
year, we are still in a formative period—our expenditures for repairs,
equipment, and running expenses,
have been really great. We cannot
take the chance of a vasctllatlng membership—sometimes a wave hits a
community like ourt either through
spite, lack of tolerance, narrowness
of out'ook—e cllqu* can itart a rumor or feeling that would soon wreck
onr membership and make our bookkeeping an impossibility, eventually
proving the ruin of the club and its
downfall, ln time I hope lo see the
club on such a sound footing that
we may be independent of such outbreaks— that our membership can be
had by the month—of course in such
an event there would ha** to be an
Initiation Fee- It is uot fair that the
present members should bear totally
the brunt of nil the expenses now and
to come in the next few years—but
t will have to be in the future.

Fred a. Starkey, commissioner for
the Associated Boards of Trade of
Eastern British Columbia, has issued
a reply to the numerous onslaughts
which have recently been emanating
from the peu of Sidney Norman, editor of the North West Mining Truth.
Spokane. Some statements made recently by Mr. Norman seem to have
gone beyond tbe point wliere it Is
wise to ignore them, and although
holding no brief for the Trail Smelter.
it will be found that Mr Starkey voices -sentiments that the East Kootenay
generally will echo.
"ll is time that the perversions of

Mining Truth puis before the mining

i Dr. J. II. King, accompanied by his
father, Senator King, who Is visiting
In this district with his sons, made a
j trip to Marysvllle Ihis week, to Inspect progress on tho new smelter lu
course of erection Ihere.
The people have spoken at
least a good many of Iheni —
and Dr. King goes lo Ottawa
as federal minister of public
works with what looks like a
good substantial majority. It
is probably a long time since
these parts have seen a contesl
of such a peculiar nature. The
lion lay down with the lamb iu
all truth, for some Liberals
were voting Progressive, some
Progressives voting Liberal,
and the Conservatives were vo-
liug both ways.
No one need cherish any regrets as to the outcome of the
campaign. The Progressive
vole iu Craubrook and Fernie,
while more than offset by lho;
figures from otlier parts of thel
riding seems to justify (he entrance of opposition on to the
scene. Had there been no contest an unhealthy spirit of
questioning criticism would
have been rampant against Dr.
King which will now be stilled,
by lhe election result.
The Progressives point to thej
fact that in the centres where
they were able to present their!
case the vote seems to show
lhe result of their efforts, and
there is no question but that so;
far as Cranbrook and Fernie j
urban centres are concerned i
their candidate made a far bet-'
ter showing than many ardent!
Liberals were prepared lo allow, and this was secured with j
but J il t ie iu the way of resources for a campaign fund, nol
oulside Imported speaking tal-:
ent, and bul few cars to press
inlo service on polling day.
The facl remains that Dr.
King lias been relurned with a
good majority, and it now remains for him to clear himself
on the promised benefits which
thc district, Ibe provinco and
the wesl are supposed lo reap
from his presence on the executive councils of i he nation,
The electorate, of all shades of
opinion, went behind him, and
now expeel in thc lifetime of
tlie preseni parliament Bome
tangible   evidence    that    they
Kast Koolenay in general
aud Cranbrook in particular
may think il has had enough
of elections of late. Hut so far
as the provincial riding is concerned tbis does not avail, for
the end is not yet. Dr. King
lias been translated to Ottawa,
and now (he matter of electing
his successor at Victoria must
soon engage the attention of
lhe electors, Home already feel
surfeited with electioneering,
lml il looks as if all that has
gone before will pale into
quietude a n d insignificance
compared lo what feeling the
impending provincial by-election may engender.
There is a lot at slake. There
must be or tlie provincial gov
eminent would not find it ne
cessary to put sucli emphasis
on tlie contests that have raged
of late In other constituencies.
Thc situation lias led to the
waggish remark being made
(hat the provincial capital is
moving around with tlie by-elections, first to Revelstoke,
now to Nelson, and later to
Cranbrook. Half the cabinet
has been at Nelson this week
With Mrs. Ralph Smith as well,
and the remainder are expected before the campaign closes
next Wednesday. Nelson has
been a Conservative seat. If
the government can woo and
win it the enhanced prestige
accruing will probably mean
revitalizing the government for
a new lease of life. If Nelson
remains true to its old love
however, it may be expected
that Ihe government will use
every effort lo hold Cranbrook,
so lhe general situation would
become no worse.
This all means dial a particularly heated contest may result here, and whichever parties are found to be contesting
the seal, it will likely be a very
different campaign to lhe one
which has just closed, lt is a
life and death struggle for (be
provincial government, and Ihe
oilier parties will probably feel
that Ihe dove-aiid-olive-branch
methods engaged iu for the federal by-election will have to
give way to something more

margin against us, more than justified us entering inlo

at all times our right to have a voice in selecting our representative to Ottawa. At all times did we realize the
powerful influences working against us, yet throughout

for (lie principle and honor at stake. We have given
expression to our political belief and rest asured thai in
the near future our cause will eventually triumph. Anything worth prizing in this life is also deserving to fight
for. We are now waiting for another opportunity of

Fur Farming Supplements Nature's Efforts in
Filling the World's Demand for Pelts
A    Precious   Trophy
!«  Hois, about 35 mi)., t  . " W
Conservation snd propagation are
tbe ilogan of those interested ln
tho fur industry of Canada. Without conservation, which means wise
laws for the protection of fur-
bearing animals and strict enforcement of those laws, these animals
-would soon be exterminated. Even
with conservation of the best sort,
wild animals cannot be protected
from starvation in bad years, nor
from the ravages inflicted by
larger carnivora, so man has turned to the domestic propagation of
many fur-bearers.
The fox breeding industry is, of
Course, the biggest money producer.
The little maritime province of
Prince Edward Island was the birthplace of thia enterprise.    In 1890
several breeders were engaged there
In the business of raising silver
black foxes, but they guarded with
great secrecy their methods of
handling and breeding the foxes and
of marketing the pelts. In 1910 thc
industry experienced a wide development and fabulous prices were paid
for breeding stock. Fox ranches are
to be found all over Canada to-day,
but Prince Edward Island continues
to lead. In 1019 this province exported about 1,000 foxes of a value
of about $300,000 and 2,500 pelts
that fetched ?75,000.
But the fox does not monopolize
the fur farmers' efforts, There are
in Canada ranches for thc propagation   of   muskrats,   beaver,   mink,
An txPSN-swa BOUOuiiT
raccoon, martin, fisher and skunks.
If they are provided with sufficient
land on which they can live as in
their wild state, and are supplied
with food when the weather or unusual conditions demand it, they
will thrive and multiply und yield
the farmer rich returns.
Each year sees more und more
Canadian farmers setting apart a
section of their holdings for thu
raising of fur-bearing animals.
Where wild animals are caught and
used for foundation stock, the cost
of starting a fur ranch is very small.
To show the beauty of Canada's
furs a winter fashion show was carried out on Dufferln Terrace, Quebec, this winter. Messrs. Holt,
Renfrew Co., furriers to H. M. tha
Kintr, co-operating with the Canadian Pacific Railway, displayed
hundreds of thousands of dollars
in valuable garments. These wero
shown to advantage on pretty
blondes and brunettes before tho
movie men and the visitor;, at tho
Ancient Capital. One coat alo.io
was valued at $25,000.        ♦
Val dc-j Hois, about 30 miles from
Buckingham, In Quebec Province, is
k celebrated fishing, hunting, and
trapping district. Mr J. A. Larivee,
White Deer Lodge, Val des Bois,
laat ib.. nud the u.siinction of shooting a remarkable full grown white
deer. How this deer escaped detection, and consequent killing such
k long time, while living within
rifle ranee of habitations is hard to
understand. He lived on the high-
est mountain at Val des noi!«.   a
natural  b*ekjrrf>-ind  of   white  blr.n
undoubtedly   made  him   invisible  to
the hunter  who could not get close
to him.   Onco snow fell, his worried
wore over as he must have become
practically   invisible  on   account   of
h:» snow-white color.    Not a black
or  colored  hair could  b# found en
his body, even the eyes, muzzle aad
hoofs   being   either   white   or   pink.
Mr.  Larivee first  saw  the deer as
a  strange or new white patch on
thc   inf.   of   the   mountain.     Upon
examination   through   field   glass-as
he   perceived   that   it   was  a  white
derr.    He  had seen  two  specimens
before, mounted by the o*  it*, aid
his joy ran eifi'v he imagined.   He
-spent   about   fifteen   minutes   planning   tha   ■ talk   and  studying    the
mountain   in   front  of  him  across
Green  Lake.    Mr. Larivee proceeds
to tell his story:
"The mountain was nejrotiated by,
e chimney or V shaped indentation
which  I climbed  by  holding on  to
shrubbery, cracks,  and  small  projections of rock, by  hand and  feet
(my rifle—A.22 H.P. Savage, lever

Reaching the top after an hour and
a   quarter climb,    I   made  a   wide
circle and came back to the edge.

amongst   the   white  birch  trees,  a
tangled branchy mass that I knew
tbe  small bore rifle was  Incapable
of penetrating, no I decided on ag-iin
circling.    This time I came out at
a point where I could not see him,
while  there was   a sheer   drop   of
several hundred feet to be overcome
to   get   within   open   shooting   distance     It took me two more hours
to   accomplish   this   noiselessly,  especial care having to be taken not
to   start   stones   rolling;   the   dried
leaves and small branches were else
too  much  in  evidence.    I  finally

why people nre not allowed to use
them for fuel. The Pennsylvania
Railroad has ipsuec? an information
p.viphlet dealing with this subject
Which states:—
"In tlie first place, it is far from
true that ail the old ties are burned.
A consider: S.e number are constantly being sold to persons living
on or near the right uf way, who
buy them at nominal prices, usually
ten or fifteen cents apiece, and use
them  fnr firewood.
"That i.-' about as far as the railroad company hus lieen able to go,
thus far, in finding an ouliet for
worn-out tie;. Such a method of
disposal is practicable only in those
cases . I.-, e the ties can be delivered
at a public crossing, or other point,
where they can be obtained safely
by the users, and where the cost of j ^
so delivering them is not greater?
than lhe nominal prices obtainable. I
"Tlie Company cannot sanction.'

tracks nnd through yards to gather
up old ties. To do so would he practically letting down the bars against'
trespassing on the tracks, an evil
which has been the cause of about
half of all Ihe fatal accidents on
railroads in the  United States.        !
"Efforts hav»- been made to inter-)
est dealers in firewood in huying the
old ties, but not thus far with much,
success.    The causes  appear  to   be
that  tbe old  ties are often  dirty;
that they contain more or less stone,
grit and slag wedged in the craeks,
which might injure the saws used in I
cutting them; that in  many cases
they are partly decayed; that they j
are dried out, and tbat their fibre
is more or less crushed, so that they
burn out too   quickly.   These   are :
among the reasons assigned hy deal- !
ers who have not been willing to pay
the   railroad   company   enough   to
cover the cost of collecting the ties
and  delivering  them  to  a  point  at
whieh they could be removed.
"Efforts have also been made to
dispose of old lies in a number af
other ways, including sale fur wood- i partner   -"warily
pulp purposes, for the extraction of I ,,„   „t   _,_,.,
chemicals, for burning and sale of
the ashes for fertilizer, ar.d for
manufacture into charcoal, but without success in interesting parties engaged in these occupations.
"The Company will be glad to continue, and wherever feasible to ex-
land, lhe present practice of selling
old ties to individual consumers for
n.minal prices a! points when- '.hey
can be delivered without danger 'fi
ihe purchasers and without costing,
for collection and transportation,
more than they are worth as fuel.
The management will welcome arv
other suggestions by which more f
the old ties can he usefully dlltnied
of or made available for commercial
or industrial purposes."
The Canadian Pacific Railway
goes further than the I'ennsylvanh
Railroad und gives away ties to any
who will take them, such giving being surrounded with the neces.«arv
safeguards n? to trespassing. 1'h-
experience of the Canadian Pacific
is that ties are taken only whero
there is no standing timber in the
vicinity, and that in many cases the!
farmers taking the tie? do not use|
them for firewood but for general|
{mrposes around the farm, indicit-
ng that the value of old ties as
firewood in this country is extremely small.

By fixing .March l   for nominations
nd polling day on lho 22nd, the pro-
Incial government is losing no time
ii lulling the Nelson by-election contest, tho recent successful outcome
of the Revelstoke by-election contest
wherein Hon. W. II. Sutherland, minister of public works, was returned,
having induced the government to
hurry on tlie Nelson fight. Announcement of tho dates was made last week.
Mr, Samuel Pnwcett has been named
returning ollicer.
Tho proximity of rolling to the date
nf nominations is ascribed to thu fact
that ns the election will be confined
lo the city of Nelson and its suburb.
Fairview, It Will be very easy for the
returning ollicer to get the ballots
printed and the necessary preliminaries completed to penult of the poling on tho 22nd.
The by-election hi Nelson is necessitated by the resignation of Dr. W-
0. Hoss, former Conservative member, who resigned to unsuccessfully
contest the Weal Kootenay riding at
the recent federal election contest.
Efforts have beon made by the Conservative party in the riding to have
Dr. Rose again enter the provincial

lied, he feels that
cannot again enter tho political
arena and. al the samo time, carry on
his practice. Mayor Mellaril)', of
Nelson, has been the choice of thn
Conservatives to contest the riding at
tbo coming election, he being the select'on Of a party nominating convention held at Nelson on Tuesday night
of last week. Tbe Liberal candldato
will be Mr. Kenneth Campbell, president of the city Liberal Association,
au alderman of the city of Nelson, and
Tho by-election right, which will be
a short and strenuous one, will be
participated In hy I'rem'er Oliver,
Hon. John Mart, and other members
of the Cabinet.
Mr. W. J, Bowser, K.C.. provincial
Conservative loader, will also take
part In the closing stages of the
Doubtless upon the outcome of the
Nelson fight will depend when tho
government will hold the by-election '
in Cranbrook. one necess'tated by the
retirement of Hon. J. H. King ua prn-j
Vinclal minister of public works to'
accept tho federal portfolio. Should i
the government win in Nelson, tho I

As for the by-election in Vancouver!
to fill tho vacancy occasioned by the!
resignation of M. A. Macdonald, who'
unsuccessfully ran in thc recent federal campaign, it is believed In Vancouver political  circles tbat no by-
election fight will be seen thore for
aome considerable time. If at all thia

Our ontortdlnment committee which
started out strong w'th nine members
Has dwindled and shrunk until at
present four membors carry on—Mrs,
Fergle, Mrs. Hogarth, MIsa Muriel
Walllnger and .Miss Ulaukeubneh.
Thero havo been sleigh rides, dances,
bridge parties, concerts, picnics, and
an ice carnival during the year, as
well as a monthly picnic all through
the aummer for the little tots, under
varying committees each montii
These are somo of our activities.
The rlnk during the winter is and
will probably be our biggest asset.
The hockey teams, both hoys and
girls, are a credit to any club. The
outsiders who have enjoyed the use of
the rink we hope ro see join us at
onco. It will cost them very little
moro and tbey will find the club a
convenience twelve months of the
year. I should like to have an amnesty declared with the beginning of
our uew year and declare that all
those who in tho past failed In their
obligations to the club and were
blacklisted (that is. that they could
uot re-enter without paying up all
arrears) mny join again w'hout penalty—providing thoy pay thc full year
at once—and providing that this meeting pass a resolution to this effect,
because it would he an injustice
to those who stuck it out with the
club to do this without their consent.
I say for those delinquents, perhaps
they did not realize that we wore very
much in earnest in forming our bylaws and fn our Intention to carry
them out to the letter.
1 ask here that if I have overlooked
any Individual effort In the way of
our activity. I will plead the great
distance between us and the lack of
some one to discuss and talk ovor
these things at first baud. Of course
our part in the boys camp at Premier
was very small but many of our boys
enjoyed it, and after all It was one
of our members, namely, Mr. Clark
of the Y.M.CA. to whom the credit Is
due. H's untiring efforts before, during, and after the cnmp expedition
will receive their just rewards in
the love and esteem of life fellow citizens.
Tbe question of finance", which
i, list he of int-v.-i to overyono, I
wili not only Include membera (so
many non-members seem to be worrying and questioning along thla line)
will be dealt with in tbe treasurer's
report. All I can ?ay Is that If our
members stick with un all bills can
bo mot. Our agreement with Mr.
UUI calls for no rent until the third
year when we pay him $20 per month.
The purchase price of the building to
the dub is set at $3,500, and at any
time from now until our agreement
expires we can purchase at. that price.
One moro thing 1 want to mention
before closing this subject—we must
havo more room for Mr. Mirams and
more dressing room space rather than
build some disfiguring temporary
structure out iu front of our building
wo propose to build floor by floor,
year by year, until we have our complete building as per our plans. A
rough estimate at building the first
floor accord'tig to our drawings,
would cost about $3 500 or $4,000, We
have Started in the club what will bo
known as the building fund—I did
not get very far with this before leaving—however wc have made a start.
In this fund there Is to date $400, all
from guarantors who were not fn our
first list, namely, Mr, J. Jackson. Mr.
J, II, McQuafd, Mr. C. O. Staples nud
Mr. W. E. Worden, I havo at least
ton otlier names of people who have
vorhally promised to K'vo lo this fut.d
(It wilt be with the samo understanding aa our first guarantors except
that this money will not be used for
anything but the now building). 1
should like a committee formed wltll] ll
myself ns honorary chairman to work
for tbfe fund. I should like one entertainment of some kind per month,
the proceeds to go to thia fund, and
in the event we allow the boy scouts
the uso of the club for certain hours
Friday evenings it must be at a certain sum for each Friday and I should
like that amount to go into the fund
also. A list of those who have signi-
lied tlieir intention to me to loan $100

Cameron, Mr. Wilson, Mr. Raworth,

year by n committee appointed for the
purpose; It will be given for sportsmanship, helpfulness, courtesy, popularity and loyalty. Only members
whose standing In high school has
been satisfactory throughout the year
will be considered. The prizes nre a
bureau set of French Ivory for the

Before closing I wish to re'terate a
few things that the club must cling
to. First of all, the club must be run
for the majority, not the minority.
We must steer clear of religion and
politics, me must uphold our constitution and by-laws, we must be loyal
nnd helpful. It is a club for the district, not for any part or portion
thereof. The board must be selected
for their interest and ability in carrying out our principles, no other
consideration should be taken note
And now, as I bring my report to
a close I wish to thank our members
for their support and belief in us. I
wish to thank personally and for every member, Mr. and Mrs. Mirams
for the splendid hacking they have
given the board, for their care and
Interest In the junior members. Hut

Wyles and Mr. Dove, of our preseni
boad, the club owes much gratitude
and thanks or the way lu which the
interests of the majority have always
been looked after, and the improvement of the club In every way. To
Mr. Dove personally, who for a long
time acted as both secretary and

Invorfere, B.C., Mar. 11.—The success of their exhibiting members in
winning fivo prizes for uncertified
Netted Gem potatoes at the provincial
potato show held last month at Chflll-
wuck has so heartened the members
of the Windermere District Potato
Growers Association that they are go-
i ing to make redoubled efforts during
[ 1922. To use the language of the As-
I sociation's secretary in bis report
read at the annual meeting yesterday
"The Association's little barque after
being launched," seems to have beeu
rather buffeted by the waves on ac-
: count of being off the beaten path of
potato supervisors. This difficulty
[ has now been overcome and having
! como Into the regular track all is
I well.
j A large increase of iterested potato growers bus been added to the
membership roll uud steps are being
taken to see tbat seed of the best
quality is procured and greatest of
care taken in the growing of tho tubers to keep up the high reputation
obtained. The ollicers for tho present year as elected are: President,
A. G. Cuthbert; Secretary-treasurer,

Word reached Creston this week of
the death in the Old Country the latter part of November, of Baillie Urob-
tnann, who was the man wlio first
conceived the idea of reclaming the
Kootenay Flats, and who on at leust
two occasions spent many thousands
of dollars in his efforts to accomplish
drainage of the well known local
urea. Iu 1882 he succeeded In building a canal from the Kootenay iuto
the Columbia river with a view to
taking off the flood waters by the
latter stream, but the canal was ordered abandoned due to the flood
conditions that were produced along
the C.I'.It main line in the Uolilcn
district. In 1S89 he and his associates started In to widen the outlet
of the lake below Nelson at what Is
now known as Groliman Creek, and
this in turn had to be abandoned as
no provslon was made for conserving
the waters of Kootenay lake, aud thus
assurjng year-round navlgat-lon for
both freight and passenger steamers.

between city und rural schools.    The
announcement made by Ute Depart-
ment is as follows:
In li»lS, the Council of Public Instruction mude a change lu the regulations governing admission to the
high schools of this province, whereby principals of schools in cities of
the first and second class, wero empowered to promote to high schools,
all pupils In their entrance classes,
who, lit tlie opinion or the principals,
were fit to undertake high school
In 1920, the Department adopted a
slight modification of this system
iu other school districts of tlie province, whereby in schools having seven divisions or more, sixty per cent. \
of the entrance pupils were promoted
to high school on the recommendation
of their principals, while the remaining forty per cent., about whose fit- j
ness to take up high school studies
there would be some reasonable doubt,
were obliged to write oa examinations conducted by tho Department
in eleven subjects.
Both systems of promotion were
given a fair trial, hut neither has
proved entirely satisfactory. Successful and experienced principals of
large schools In the municipalities
felt that they were not being shown
the same consideration as the city
principals. Many of the high schools
felt thut they were receiving pupils
who were not well equipped to pursue higher work. Several ot the
school boards In the province requested the Department to examine all
the entrance pupils fn their districts.
The Department too, felt that the
examinations In eleven subjects ns
previously held, was a public school
leaving examination rather than a
test of the fitness of the entrance
pupils to undertake high school work
successfully.   A change has just been
the  prlncial  to

and drawing. These subjects do not
lend themselves to the "cramming"
Principals will be expected to certify that the entrance pupils have

and pupils now feel a greater stimulus to do better work. Muny pupils
will aim at a higher standard, and an
examination in five essential subjects
will in no way be a burden to them.
High schools will receive tholr pupils
better prepared and the pupils will

with more certain prospect of success.
