It is decided to make the full call in
tlie future. The new act requires that
allotment of the shares shall take
place within forty days from-the receipt of tlie certificate of approval
of tlie prospectus, and this time expires just before the end of the pre

be no delay iu making response to the
invitation to subscribe- A certain response has already been met witli,
and a personal follow-up canvass will

It Is hoped that thero will be no difficulty In securing the subscription
asked for at the present time, and
there should be none if the response
from those who ought to be Interested is what it should be. The company proposes to take uctive steps in
the matter of making sales of promising claims, undertake such work as
is necessary to prove the worth of
somo of these* claims, and generally
undertake what may be deemed necessary to further the mining Industry
in this section, and the development
of the local mineral resources.

Utter to the Herald, Mr. W. M. Armstrong, formerly principal of the High
School, conveys this Information.
Having been In touch with a int. in-

Armstrong Htutes that tlie seemingly
poor results obtained in all parts of
tht province wero duo to the standard
of marking being Increased. The
results will have their intended effect
iu keeping the university clauses more
within    reasonable   hounds. It ts
probable, moreover, that all second
year pupils wll! ho compelled lo take
the department examinations, owing to the fact thut tliere aro too many

not ready to take the examlnatons.
At Nelson, :'.;"> pupils wrote on the
junior matriculation exams., not one

Westminster, also failed to pass one
junior matriculant. In Victoria, the
results are considered almost equally
deplorable.. Generally speaking the
best papers were found in English and
History, and the worst in Algebra,

As a result of ast Sunday's games,

with only next Sunday's gameB to finish out the league schedule, Wycllffe
Is an assured pennant winner, whether they win or lose.
Cranbrook beat Wardner in their
last home game In a proper run-feat,
the score being 21-11.  Wycllffe changed its fortunes again and got back
to its winning streak by besting tbe
Pernie nine at Wycllffe by 3-0. White

took a fall out of the home team by

Next Sunday's games are as follows,

The best place Cranbrook can hope
for in the league ns a result of   tbe

Delegations had a prominent purt iu

held last Thursday evening. The muy-[early

A number of ladles from the Falr-
view addition were In attendance to
urge the matter of water extension to
that section upon the council. After
some discussion ll was decided to have
the delegation meet the water committee of the city council to go further
Into the metier, which took place
this week.
Another delegation was a strong representation from the Board of Trade
and also the Prospectors' Association.
Thc Board of Trade was seeking a renewal of the grant for general publicity purposes hitherto made by the
council, and the joint bodies were
looking for some assistance in the
matter of entertainment for the party
of mining engineers who are expected
to visit the city next month. Mr. G.
J. Spreull, as past president of the
Board of Trade gave to the council
a resume of the work accomplished
last year, emphasizing the attraction
of the tourist traffic, which is reaching greater proportions than ever this
year. There were other matters of
importance to the city In general which
were being dealt with, s%id the board
felt fully justified In seeking the usual grant of $300 per year. This was
granted on a formal motion put to the
aldermen, and an additional grant of
$100 was also made towards the expenses to be Incurred during the visit
of the mining men which Is now pending.
The customary reports were recelv- i
ed from the dtp superintendent regarding the electric light department,
the city foreman, the fire chief, and
the dairy inspector, reporting the usual activity ln these departments.
A letter from the G.W.V.A. brought
before the city council the matter of
taking advantage of the housing aid
scheme, by which financial assistance
may be extended to veterans to aid In
the bntldtng of houses. In all a lotal
of $1,700,000 haB been allotted by the
Dominion Governmeni to this province, but up to the present this city
nas uoi taken advantage ot Its provisions as some places have. It was
decided by motion to take advantage
of the act by whlcb a certain sum
will be made available for aiding veterans Ih solving the housing problem.
Some complaint has been made in
the past by the stockmen iu regard
to tbe pound regulations In tlie city.
and an effort has been made to lessen
the trouble and expense whicli has arisen in the past. Following a joint
meeting of the stockmen and some of
the council. Alderman Santo mas able
to report that by having the stockmen
furnish the police office wth copies of
their brands, the necessity for Impounding may be lessened, provided
the owners may be quickly got in

City and provincial police authorities desire to draw the attention of motorists to the practise of operating
automobiles without the necessary
lights thereon. Particularly is this
so In the case of rear lights which appear to be an unnecessary appenduge
from the viewpoint of many car owners. A number of persons under the
age of seventeen years are operating
cars. This is an Intrtngment of the
Motor Vehicles Act and a permit Is necessary for any other than the owner

Windermere's somewhat hectic past,
to which brief reference was made In
a previous article, is in striking contrast to the present. Mining booms
are not looked forward to today. The
district has settled down to a quiet
respectable existence. Its object Is to
develop as a tourist centre, as an agricultural district and as a centre for
bin game hunting, uud lu progress
solidly as a mining district.
Kor tourists no more delightful district could be found. There Is no
more varied aud delightful scenery In

Lake -Windermere, which lies in the

a breeze blowing down tlie valley and

of tiie lake Is pleasantly warm, lead-
lug one to the belief that there may be
hot springs bubbling up beneath Its
surface in some parts. There are
beauty spots such as Toby creek canyon. Sinclair canyon, the wonderful

committee: Mrs. W. F. Green, Mrs
E. L. Staples, Mrs. G. H. Thompson
Mrs. W. R. Grubbe, Mrs. C. H. Pollen, Mrs. M. A. Beale, Mrs. Hogarth
Tentative plans for a program of
outings and entertainment wore taken
up and suggestions made, to be gons
Into more fully on Tuesday, when n
meeting of the general committee was
called to further consider plans.
At this meeting there wus a somewhat disappointing attendance, but
good progress was made in lining up
tho arrangements.
Sub-committees wero named us follows to look after certain phases of
the  undertaking:
Reception—Messrs. G. J. Spreull,
Mayor Genest, J. l\ Fink, Chas. Evans, Col. Pollen, J. F. Huchcroft,
Transportation— Messrs. . W. H-
Wilson, convenor; F. M. MacPherson,

Gilroy, convenor, with power to add.
Program Committee— Consisting of
members of tlle Reception Committee and the convenors of the sub-committees-
Exhibits Committee— in charge ot
J. F. Huchcroft.
Tentatively, the arrangements are
as follows:   The visitors are expected
to arrive on Sunday evening from the
west, and the   Reception Committee
wilt probably go west as far as Yahk
to meet them and learn their wishes,
It is possible that some short sightseeing trips by car may be arranged
that evening, or whatever else falls
n Une wltb the desires of the party-
Monday there will be a trip up to
Klmberley to see the Sullivan Mine,
this being an expressed wish of the
party.   Lunch will probably be served
there, and practically the entire day
spent between the upper and   lower
levels.    That evening there will   be
a lecture by Dr. Schofleld on the geological history of this section of   the
Rockies, and possibly an address also
by Mr. A. G. Langley.   A comprehensive display of samples ls being gathered and will be on hand at this time,
and lantern slides will  be shown In
connection  with these    lectures.    It
was left to the committee to decide
the place for this to tuke place- Tuesday an early start will be made and
a suggested itinerary thus far ls Wild
Horse flrBt, on to Bull River to see the
proposed power development, und buck
through  Wardner.    Several   ulternu
.lives for this duy have been suggested
to take in Perry Creek und tlie St
Mary's country, and  it  will  be- left
largely to the wishes of the visiting
engineers as to what Is done.   Some
may choose one objective, uud the party will  probablp be broken up, the
local committee holding themselves In
readiness to take care of this.   That
evening trere will be a banquet tendered to the visitors, and the following morning they wfll be taken us fur
as Wattsburg on their return trip, to
see the undertaking of the B.C. Spruce
Mills, and get On the train tliere on

High School
Exam Results
Examination Results Given Out
by the Dept. Seems to Show
Small Number of Passes
The first word received early this
week by Mr. W. H. Wilson, chairman
of the School Board, seemed to occasion considerable disappointment in
regard to the small n imber of passes
made by students ut tlie Cranbrook
High School. A little later, however,
when It was possible to make comparison with other centres, it was seen
that the results achieved here were
not out of proportion with ilie showing
made at other places. There seema to
be no question but that the standard
was raised somewhat this year by the
Department- At the time of the examinations some of the pai»ors were
reported by tiie teachers as being unusually difficult. Although the number passing this year all over Uie
province is a small Im rease over
last year, tliere were more
writing this year than hut. so that Uie
percentage of passes tills year Is probably smaller.
Of tlie 15-10 candidates who presented themselves for examination
694 passed In all subjects and 394
were granted University Supplement*-

of thoso

It Is nulliiiig new for Cranbrook i» lie found In the van of
things. II was so in the early
flays, so the old-timers testify,
and it is gratifying lo get evidence from time to time that In
some directions al least the
city and district is alive to the
neecessity of the kind of action
that spells progiess.
This is true in the movement
now on foot to gel Ihe Kast
Kootenay Prospectors' Development Company, Limited,
away to a sale launching. A
great deal has been heard about
the richness of the mineral re
sources of the Kast Kootenay,
and the local people as a whole
have the utmost faith in the
ultimate outcome of the devc4
opment of these resources. Now
comes the move to back up this
faitli with works. The East
Kootenay Prospectors' Development Company is going to
offer to those who profess to
have some faith In the hidden
wealth of the hills a means of
Hiking some share in the unravelling of these riches. It is
something that so far as Is
known, is new in the annals of
mining- That is no argument
against it, however, but rather
a feather in somebody's cap i'or
originating it. Tliere Is of
course, every need lor due caution in a move of tbis kind, hut
it cannot he said in tbis case
there is uny ill-considered
haste. The scheme has been
maturing for many months, one
step at a time being taken, llll
only now is the scheme in such
shape as lo invite tlie co-oper-
a i inn of the public.
Briefly stated, Ihe new company will put on a business
footing   some   of   Ihe   work
perfectly legitimate and open
Fuller particulars as to the
nature of the organization
which is being effected will be
found on another page. Tlie
project calls for the support of
all those who are interested in
the potentialities of this section. We have talked in the
past, of having the goods;
here's where we prove it.
Probably because the pupils
are presumed lo be of suoh an
age as to have a better appreciation of whal educational advantages they are enjoying, the
high school examination results
are always awaited with a good
deal of interest ami sometimes
impatience. Now Ihey have
come again for another year
there is the usual sequel of disappointment, and some hectic
efforts at explanation of failures are heard. Some will
blame the teachers for seemingly poor results; others will put
it on the pupils themselves;
still others there are who say
the examiners are at fault. All
three elements of course have
their bearing on the results,
but to no oue of them more
than another can be attributed
a poor looking pass list. The
average teacher does their best,
aud often has to do it in surroundings and with conditions
that are far from conducive to
best results. The average pupil
at the high school does not
cherish the privilege of higher
education very seriously, and
so usually works no harder than
seems absolutely necessary.
Tiie examiners are compelled
to take things just as they find
them, having no opportunity
to take into account any exten
uating circumstances.
For those who unexpectedly
find themselves on the "nou
satis" list, there may be some
consolation in the fact that
without question Ihe standard
of high school scholarship was
raised this year- This was absolutely essential in view of
the congestion at the University of B.C. at this time. It was
foreseen that this condition
might arise and it is well to re-
cognize that it is so. There are
two main outlets for the stream
of pupils who pass through the
schools year by year. Ihe normal school and the provincial
University. The former will
probably absorb its customary
quota, from the girl pupils
largely, but the latter is now
getting dangerausly clogged by
sheer numbers, and its efficiency may be impaired by the lack
of accommodation.
This is a serious state of affairs and one which reflects no
credit upon lhe governmeni
whicli refuses to consider the
question of better housing for
the university in a practical
fashion, while still sanctioning
expensive contracts for a $(i(l(l,-
000 Prince Rupert government
building, and other projects of
a distinctly narrower benefit
than the provincial university.
But of course the money for
this is going to be found out
of the proceeds of the governmeni control of liquor—just the
which the Prospectors' Associa
tion has found itself saddledIsame as it is for everything else,
with, or rather which some in-1The profits are going to be so

able personal sacrifice. its er words, the more you drink
aim is to gel promising mining the better off you'll be—that is
properties on tbe way to development, or iu bands which can
do the developing; to act as a
sort of mining exchange; to
help disseminate information
of a reliable nature to the people who want to know, antl al
so to those who don't know, and
probably never would, bul for
this agency. There are many
ways in which the new company can do good service to tlie
district, and one feature which
is worthy of note is that no
one stands to make a pile of
money out of it at anyone else's
expense. Tliere are no doubtful share commissions to be
handed out, and in one way it
may even be stated that the
company Is not organized as a
money maker. Its prime object is to get some of the promising looking properties mov-
the government way of promoting what is called "true temperance." In the meantime are
the children of the moderate
drinkers to understand that the
extension of the university facilities they are looking towards
is dependent directly or indirectly on how extensive use their
father makes of his permit?
And with what degree of enthusiasm will the non-drinker
regard such a prospect?
Such Is the higher education
al situation as it seems to exist
today in this province, whether
the view pleases us or no. And
the hopes of some young people
in this city who worked well
and expected to get through,
and deserved to get through,
have been brought to naught,
and possibly their interests will
now suffer some diversion to

Tlie provisional directors of tlie

Mr. Clark, the Customs officer at

residents of the South-East Kootenay,
is missing. It is feared thut he has
met with some serious accident or
taken his life, as he wns not lu very

(Western Lumberman)
Norman Moore, district forester for
East Kootenay, estimates that the
winter cut of logs was at least 40
per cent, less than the preceding
winter, anil that for tlie whole year
th© shrinkage will be 50 per cent. Last
year tiie cut in tlie East Koolenay was
almost 200,000,000 foot but with only
about a dozen of the \'l mills in tlie
district operating at present, the cut
for the yeur Is not expected to be
even half of laat year. For 1820 the
timber losses by fire In Mr. Moorei's
district were about $78,000 and his
figures show that about 8 per cent,
of tliis was laid to lightning us lhe
cuuse. One of the improvements noted lias come* from the provision of
picnic and camping grounds uloug tiie
highways, a liolicy adopted hy the forestry department, very generally
throughout the province. Tliere has
been a noticeable reduction in the
number of fires started from carelessness ou tlie part of campers and picnic parties. Another provision by
amendment of tho Forest Act, makes
It compulsory for mill operators us

A pamphlet issued at the Coast recently and giveu a wide distribution
all over the province lias been attracting a good deal of attention, aud
draws out some strong points upon
which criticism Is levelled at the Liberal administration in tills province-
Salient poiijts brought out In this
pamphlet are as follows:

ihey have passed legislation authorizing new borrowings of $7,550,000. In

Here ure a few samples: Department
of Industries, organized eighteen
months ago. hr.s loaned over one million dollars and eighteen concerns are
already in arrears on principal and interest. Since the government took
charge of tlie* Pacific Great Eastern iu
April 191S. they have advanced to the
company $14,000,000 and the road Is
only operating lo Soda Creek. This
year lhe government proposes to borrow $4,000,000 more and loan to the
railway, in order to finish the road
to Prince Qeorge, but this loan provides nothing for rolling stock or equipment, so wo can expect another
loan will be asked for next year.
Mineral Development
Under the Mineral Surveys Act, the
Department of Mines has carried on
an extensive system of general development of tlie Snowstorm Mineral
Group, situated in Highland Valleys,
near Ashcroft, owned by Stewart Henderson, ex-M.P.P., and associates, and
have already paid out $45,379 in connection with Uiese mineral claims uud
are si ill carrying on, and the owners
contributing nothing.
Tiio Opposition contended that these
monies should have beeu spent to
aid the prospectors by building roads
and trails to properties which were
being pdoveloped Up tho owners.
While the municipalities, hospitals,
schools and unemployed have been
begging for government assistance,
Ihey huve been told by the Premier
that it wns Impossible for the government to purt with any of the provincial revenue, still at tlie same tine the
government contributes $400,000 to
the B. 0. Electric Railway Company
to usslst ln changing their tracks
aud equipment to conform to the
change in the Rule of the Road, which
change might well have been postponed for a year or two.
Southern Okanagan Lands
22,000 acres (11,000 Irrigable) were
purchased by tre government in December, 1918, for $350,000 cash. Re
turns by the company owning the land

valuation on these lands at $208,000.

Soldier Settlement Areas
The Department purchased 13,660
acres at Mervllle, near Courtenuy, und
have cleared 1,107 acres and have sold
2.790 acres. Total investment in thii
area at December 31st, 1920, was
$500,920, and sales on deferred payments amount to $43,183. Minister of
Agriculture admits a loss of $187,000
on this area. At Creston, government
purchased 5,9^ acres. Total investment to December 31st. 1920, was
$473,026. 323 acres cleared. No agreements for sale completed. At Fernie—884 acres purchased. Total investment to December 31st, 1920, was
$34,828. 221 acres are partly cleared

Land Settlement Areas up to the end
of December last, and outside of soldier settlers at Mervllle and Fernle,
123 men have been located on lands
in tlie balance of tre province.
Liquor Warehouse Purchase
Since the session closed the government has purchased a warehouse In
Vancouver for the Liquor Board, from
the Campbell Storage Co., Ltd., for
$150,000, This land was assessed by
the City of Vancouver at $18,000 and
the building at $40,000, or $58,800 tn
all, and still the government buys it
ut private sale for $150,060, when they
could have gone on renting these same
premises as they have been doing for
the last four years. ,A few duys after
he sold his warehouse, Mr- Chas.
Campbell purchased the "Daily World1
of Vancouver, and publicly stated that
its policy would be changed from thut
of an Independent to a Liberal organ,
and it is now supporting the Oliver
government. How long Is the British
Columbia elector going to stand for
this work?
The greatest responsibility of the
government, In the opening up of this
new and rich province, should be the
expenditure tor building roads, trails
and bridges, so valuable to pioneers
who are developing our agricultural
lands In scattered portions of the pro
vince. Ths duty has been badly neglected, while lavish expenditures have
been made elsewhere, as already suggested by the Instances mentioned.
The Opposition In the legislature
has persistently criticized the increasing expenditures of the government,
und urged the need for economy.

that tho work would-cease with the

May 23rd and 24th saw the inauguration for the city of Victoria
of what is to be hereafter un annual
event, and one of the greatest importance In the civic life of the
city—"The Broom Festival." What
Portland's Rose Festival in to her,
so the Broom Festival will no doubt
become to British Columbia's Cup-
ital, and Victoria has the advantage
of a great deal of free advert Mm;
of nature's own device, for on every
boat that comes within sight of the
city, the passengers crowd to thc
rails with exclamations of "What is
it? "What can it be?" They find, as
they draw nearer that the object
which attracted their attention is
not an immense Inverted butter
bowl, nor the full moon on a pedestal, but Beacon Hill aflame with the
broom—a sight once seen, witii its
setting of snow capped mountain-'
and deep blue sea, never to be forgotten!
The broom is a low growing bristly bush with scant foliage somewhat
resembling sage brush, something tu
be overlooked on ordinary occasions,
but what a transformation when the
flowers appear!    Branches, foliage,
, stems, are lost in a mass of golden
; bloom, the dainty flowers resembling.
; a miniaturt sweet pea. Victoria ;.t]
tbe end o' May Is a paradise. Not
only are the beautiful parks and
carefully kept grounds a riot of
bloom, but every vacant lot, every
old stone wall and wayside is a thins
of beauty. The hawthorne, the tulips
the violets, the peonies, the wild
hyacinths are out, the fruit trees are
just shedding their blossoms, the
roses are In bud, but crowning all.
and overshadowing all—the broom.
No wonder the city of Victoria,
its merchants and civic authorities
co-operating, decided that the Broom
Festival should come to stay, and
tbe succuss which attended the af
fair, tbe perfect weather, the large
number of vlehors in the city, anrl
the hearty willing work all around
should augur well for the permanency of tne Festival as an annual
Broom ts a wonderful medium of
1 decoration.   It lends itself to pi'1-*
arches, and walls as though root*"'
there.    It beckons down the stre^'
, from each lamp standard with gold
en fingers that can be seen foi
blocks; it banks in store window*
and on automobiles as though piled
there by nature, and ft has the ndI
I ed virtue of remaining fresh wh.
flowers of almost any other descri..
tion would be hanging their head
The pageant with its gorgeous fl....:

Miss Jessie Chapman was chos*

Events opened on the morning

In  the  afternoon   at   the   Willow
Park a field meet, under the Pub
Schools   Sports   Association.   The .
I events were hugely enjoyed by th)
boys and girls, and by evening the
whole city had apparently wakened
, up to what was going on, for "Tne
Community Sing" under the direction of Mr. Frank Sehl, on the steps
j of the Parliament   Buildings   with
I the crowds spreading out in all din- -
tions on the velvet lawns was a tremendous success. When "0 Canada''
and "Onward Christian Soldiers'
broke from thousands of throats,
the Festival was an assured success,
for "When the people sing with or,e

What easier transition from singing then to drying? So away went

Lift Off with Fingers
The provincial government, as i
measure to enlarge the scope of mun
icipul recvuue, intends to make taxation of* improvements compulsory ujt
to fifty per cent, of the assessments
and is now making preparations to
that end, ac-Sordlng to Intimation giv
en out ut the Coast. Buch a move is
expected to meet with considerable
opposition from some cities, especial*
ly from such places as Victorlu^where
stress has been laid on the desirability of the city from u purely residential standpoint.
The city of Crunbrook bus for some
time, of course, followed the practice
of assessing improvements up to fifty
per cent, of their value for purposes
of taxation,

The proposals originating at Victoria for capitalizing the scenic attractions of British Columbia were
placed before Premier Oliver n few
duys ago by Mr. Arthur Utiehum und
I B.C. Nicholas, of tbe Victoria Chum
I ber of Commerce.
1 Tbe proposals include lho building"
of government hotels at many of the
naturally attractive points in the province, the development of it, imlicy of
improved roads and motor facilities,
and tbe opening of government tourist bureaus in the most Important cities or the province at which tourists
could buy strip tickets to points or
interest und thus be kept lu the province. Mr. l.iiu'liain explained tbat it
meant at least $5 fnr every day every
tourist is inclined to spend here and
because of that It should be good
business on tbe pnrt ot the government to foster tbe tourist business.
Premier Oliver requested that the

Some Fine Properties
In the surrounding district there are
muny fine properties today. Nearly a
million dollars bas been spent by the
Columbia Valley Irrigation Company
In bringing water to some 15,000 acres,
all of which urea Is capable of producing heavy crops or yielding returns from cattle.
A newcomer to tbo district who Is
spending very large sums in develop-
lg his property, Is Capt. A. A. McCarthy, a retired officer of tho United
States Navy. He pwTchused tbo range
of Messrs. Ellis and Stoddart, now
known ns ihe K2, and plans to stock
It with high-grade cattle after giving
It n yenr or two of rest to Improve
the pasturage. On u high cliff above
Wilmer ho has built a fine residence
and barns and spends several months
there each year.
Abovo tho lake near Windermere
there stands tbo magnificent house
built a few years ago by the wife of
Professor Adaml. vice-chancellor of
Liverpool University. The place has
a wonderful outlook and wns built ns
a summer residence.
Near Invermer is the ranch of Mr.
J- Murray Gibbon, head of tbe Canadian Pacific Railway publicity service.
His place is pointed out to all and
sundry ns n model fnrm of its kind
with Its green fields and thriving orchards. Hurry Peters, his manager,
an Old Country farmer of tbe best
type, Is known nil through the valley
as ono of the most successful of settlers.
On the west side of Lake Winder
mere there is u road whicli. while it
cannot be classed as a first-class mot
nr road. Is passable, and winds
through beautiful country and past
many fine ranches. With Franlc|
Stockdnle at the wheel T drove
thruogh miles of range land along
tbis road, passing through much of
the K2 property.
ltoitd Hnlr-ltiiMng
Incidentally, when you travel "by
automobile in the Windermere Valley,
you travel fast. There are hair-raising
corkscrew turns, as tbe road winds
up and down the steep bills. There
are turns which, to tbe unltlated,
look dangerous fn the extreme. Occasionally the passenger in the back
seat feels frightened; sometimes he
holds bis breath and only keeps from
crying out by taking a firm grip on
his tongue with his teeth, as he balin-
ces about In the lonneuu like a pea
fn a glass bottle. Rut to those who
know, I suppose tbe road Is safe enough.

Along this road the traveller catcb-
gs glimpses of prosperous farms like
that of George Johnson at Brady
Creek, where the timothy and clover
stand four feet high. Then there' is
Arthur Walker's fine farm by the roadside—with Arthur himself busy replacing tbe roof of his barn which
happened to have been torn off clean
by a local cyclone.
There is the Sunshine ranch, originally settled by the ubiquitous Ed.
Johnson, and now owned by E. A.
Dunbar of Vancouver. High up. Above tbe road is the. property which,
before the war, belonged to Col. Thor-
old, an Imperial oficer who wetit in
for polo ponies and "pups" who came
from England to "learn farlning."
On the east "side of the lake the
main Cranbrook road, in splendid condition, passes throiiRh miles of Indian
reserve lands. The Kootenays have

fifty or sixty Tndlntis who live there,
and there nre well-cnltlvnttd farms.

acres. Ou one place, consisting of
-500 acres, there are some 400 head of
cuttle and the ranch is managed by
Major F. C. Turner, D-S.O., a former
Strathcona Horse officer, who arrived
recently from Ganges Harbor on Salt
Spring Island to take charge of the
property. Years ago this ranch was
a famous stopping place on the pack

Marvel of Suture.
Further north on the Banff-Win-
derniero road are the Sinclair Hot
Springs, one of the marvels of nature.
At un altitude of nearly 3000 feet, the
springs are on the odge of tho timber
und tbe swimming pool Is formed like
u cup In the grey uud red-brown rocks.
Thorn Is a stopping pluco und bathhouse, here and greut developments
are plunned by a new company recently flouted lu England. The company
plans to erect a modern hotel uud
bath-house witli bungalow dwellings
in the vicinity. In addition there is
to be u bottling plant so that the waters may be shipped abroad. These
waters are highly mineralized and contain suits ot radium. Tbey huve been
found to possess highly curative properties for certain diseusea.
Tbe Sinclair springs lie in the puss
which connects the Columbia with the
Kootenay valley. The pass bus been
used for generations by the Indians
after incursions into the rich hunting
lands ot the Vermilion und Kootenay,
wliere moose, elk and otlier game still
abound. The llttlo lake lies on the
exact summit of the pass and the
wonderful canyon, with its bright red
walls of rock towering hundreds of
feet on either side of the roadway
through the centre of the' canyon
itself, presents a picture not to ne
duplicated in tho Canadian Rockies.
The urea around the springs will
form part of the new national park
which hus beeu set aside by tbo Dominion government.
Great tilings are expected for the
ilstrict when the Banff-Windermere
road is opened up. The total distance
of tbe road is about seventy-five miles,
and there remain some forty miles to
bo completed. Locally there is some
dissatisfaction at the slowness of progress, while the settlers who ure
being moved from their lands within
the confines of the park are by no
means pleased at the prospect.
As un agricultural district the Windermere Valley is still only ut the
beginning of its history. A visit to
the experimental farm at -Invermere
will convince anyone uf tbe legibilities for many lines of farming provided that tliere is adequate Irrigation.
R. Gladwyn Newton, tlie enthusiastic young superintendent, a graduate
of Guelph -Agricultural College and
formerly assistant superintendent at
the Lethbrldge government farm, has
eighty-five ucres under his direction.
Heath, the chief gardener, will tell
you with prido that Windermere cun
grow tlie finest potatoes iu the world,
not excepting Ashcroft, und Newton
will back him up. At the farm they
nro experimenting with twenty different varieties uud un association lias
been formed in the valley to decide on
tlie best variety wheih it is planned
to adopt as a standard. There ure ,\p
bugs or blight here os yet, und the
drainage is such that even witli tlie
irrigutlon necessury, potatoes are not
soggy" us so often happens* where
artificial moisture is necessury. Fifteen tons of potatoes to tlie acre have
been grown on several pluces und this
year from Fernie came un offer for
eight or nine carloads at $1 above the
prevailing market price-
Peas are Profuse
Peas, says Gladwyn Newton, grow
in tremendous profusion. Forty-six
tons to the acre huve been garnered at
the experimental farm und good prices
uro obtainable.
Timothy, ulfalfa and clover ure the
chief hay crops, and in the two cuttings per year they yield from two to
three tons per acre.
Poultry and bees claim a share of
tho attention of the staff. J. W.

Is kept there Is 150 eggs per year,,

In here to confer with officials of the
Provincial Department of Agriculture
relative to the work of agricultural
instruction towards which the Dominion makes a grant of $1,000,000 allotted to the various provinces on a
per capita basis.
"Some of the municipalities would
appear to be acting la a strange manner," remarked Premier Oliver laat
week at Victoria when referring to the
government's action in sending out
queetionnalree to the various municipalities of thc province asking for
information bearing upon their financial status, information which the
government desires preparatory to iu
formulating its policy of aid to municipalities. The government policy wilt
be brought down at the forthcoming
fall session of the legislature, one
primarily summoned to deal with the
municipal problem.
The premier stated that some of
the municipalities have been slow in
complying with the request ot tbe
government and some of the returns
already made have beeu found to be
incorrect and had to be sent back for
correction. Further, he stated, the
government's request appeared to
have been received in an unfriendly
manner by some of the municipalities,
In fact, in the caae of one munlci- j
pallly—the premier refrained from
stating .which one—lt had replied to
the request in caustic mariner, suggesting lt could spend Us money and
the time of Its officials in some better  way.
Premier Oliver stated he hoped ta
have all the Information in hand
shortly, when steps for the Investigation Into the whole matter of municipal finances would be immediately

during Mr. Shannon's nbsenet, met
wiili aa accident laal Saturday afternoon. He motored, accompanied by
Mr. Robinson, to St- Mary's Lake,
and was returning In late afternoon.
When about a mile or so from Marys-
ville tho car left the roadway and
turning several somersaults plunged
down the embankment. Mr. Robinson
managed to make his exit after the
first turn-over witli uotliing more ser-
loua than a shakeup- Mr. Brown went
all tlie way down the bank. He is
now in Kimberley hospital with a

At Kimberley some petty thief, or
thieves, evidently needed some clean
laundry, for lust Thursday evening
the clean clothing drying on the line
at the Chinese laundry disappeared
mysteriously. The policeman's efforts
to loeute the missing garments rave
so far proven unavailing.
Mr. Bert Sang, traveller for the
Western Groceries, made his weekly
visit to Kimberley on Saturday. Bert
didn't kill a badger, mistaking lt for
a coyote, this trip up.
Last Friday evening Mr. C. A. Seaton motored to Windermere, taking

Game Board
Meets at Coast
Urging Greater Restriction On
Deer Hunting; Bucks Only
Should Be Taken
The setting apart of sunctuaries for
game, confining the shooting of deer
to two or three bucks only and the
adoption of the "tag" system were
some recommendations made before
the Game Conservation Board last
week when thirty-five delegates from
the various rod and gun associations
In the province assembled to further
the sportsmen's interests-
"British Columbia is a sportsmen's
paradise/ said Mr. J. K. McRae, of
the Vancouver Angling and Gun Association, "and we must do all ln our
power to keep it as such." At the
present rate of depletion, B.C- will
soon be almost destitute of deer, he
asserted. Otlier speakers echoed these
sentiments, citing many Instances of
"pit-lamping" und the shooting of
does. j
The new regulations making "pit
lamping" a jail offence have had some
effect ln restricting this illegal meth
od of shooting deer. B.C. is the only
place in North or South America where
does may be shot, It was declared and
the concensus of opinion was that tt
should only be permissible to shoot
buck for at least a period of years so
that the herds might get restocked.
It was also decided that three deer
should be the limit for one hunter's
bag for the season, and recommendations to this effect will bo made, to the
Regarding the "tag" system, the
majority voted in favor of its adoption. By this means, euch hunter
would be supplied with three tags
when he took out his license, uud any
hunter who was found with deer that
were not Identified by oue of these
tags would be prosecuted. This would
ensure, to some extent ut kast, that
people would not shoot more thuu
their quota of deer.
One speaker declared himself to he
against the adoption of this system,
declaring that It would only be "one
more law on the statute books that
can not be enforced." His objection,
however was overruled, it being pointed out that any law tlmt might pos-
sibly do something towards the conservation of game should be adopted.
Another topic that was discussed nt
length was that of fixing one date for
the opening of the hunting season.
Mr. McRae pointed out that iu the
Sumas valley, wher the majority of
Vancouver sportsmen went for their
early duck shooting, British Columbia
was suffering a disadvantage. The
neighboring state of Washington had
an earlier opening date than British
Columbia, with the result that many
Canadian ducks which were temporarily feeding on the American side
were shot  before  British    Columbia
Hportsmou   had   a   chance  to  get   at
Several Farmers complained of the
ditniuge done to their crops by pig-
cons and pheasants* Dr. A. it. Baker,
who presided, poiuted out that they

ate many grubs and Insects that were

tbe figures were 21,100,000 tons valued at 170.600,000.

To encourage the cattle Industry,
tlie British Columbia government la
giving a grazing rate onlj one-half to
one-eighth that charged per bead ot
cattle by neighboring governments for
the use ot public ranges. Hon. T. D-
Pattullo has recently announced after
completing a compilation and study
of the grazing rates for Western North
"An interesting feature In connection with government control of stock-
grazing on crown or public ranges ot
Western North America la found In
the report of the United States forest
service and refrs to an Investigation
Into the rental values of uofenced private ranges, Intermingled with the
public lands of the States of Washington anil Oregon," said Mr. Pattullo.
"The Investigation was made ln connection with this order from Congress
providing for the appraisal of tht
grazing value of all public lands with
a view to increasing the fees.
"The figures show that on an average It costs the stockmen 12.7? a
head to range his cattle for the open
leason On open private range. On
Indian reservations the charge le from
$2.75 to |3 a head. Where the government and private owners have entered Into friendly agreements for the
benefit of the stockmen holding permits to use the public ranges, tbt
charges are considerably lower. In
some cases the government secures «
rate of about 60c a head.
'These figures are In striking contrast to the charge of 35c a head and
lower for cattle made by the government ot British Columbia for the
use of crown ranges of the province
during the open season."
-A motor resulting from three years of
the most gruelling tests
ONLY after Studebaker engineers had spent three years in subjecting the LlGl IT-
SIX motor to the most cruelling tests, were they ready to approve its being
offered to the public.
The entire LIGHT-SIX car was designed with a definite purpose, whicli was to
build an automobile of quality construction that would perform all of the functions
of a heavier car, but which could be operated at a minimum expense.
In keeping with this aim, LIGHT-SIX engineers conceived and patented the Internal
Hot-Spot—an exclusive feature of the Light-Six motor, whjch is largely responsible for the unusually low fuel consumpiion of the Studebaker LIGHT-SIX.
