To the Citizens of Cranhrook:
Notwithstanding my refusal to
many personnl requests 1 have, within tho past week, reoclvcd a strong
]ii>titiini signed hy almost all thr
'business in.-ii mid ninny other citizens
requesting mu lo reconsider tho
mailer and cotisonl to my 11111111' ho-
iui; placed in iiiiiuiti.itii.il tm thr
Under such I'lrcumslancca I have
heen lead tn hellovo tlml, perhnmi
during every man's lid-, a curtain
amount ol lime must hu sacrificed in
Iht) puhlto Interest.     I have,   there-
ful'O, decided  to allow  mv  name to lie
ploiMMl in nomination,    it elected mv
policy will hi- as follows:
Thu Aldermen elected shall assume
in equal pt;rttuu ul responsibility of
tlu> administration, Iho illiTct'ent 00m-
mlttees shall he responsible for tlm
t.iiilitul performnneo of (heir soveral
Tho chief of police ami 11 ro department shall he held responsible lor
the satisfactory rtlschargo of their
duties and for the efficiency of their
departments. I hollovo that, in the
interest of public good, slot machines
nnil gambling should nol in- tolerated, hut otherwise, tho eity having
been conducted iu a satisfactory
manner during tlie past year 1 propose lo make no ehnrtge. I will not,
lo too meal an extent, neglect my
..un business.
I will not accept office as a supporter of any oliqllo, party or faction hut as a plain liusiiiess man,
having in view at all times, the
best interest for the advancement of
Cranlirook. 1 will havu no committee rooms nor will 1 ask any person for her or his vote.
As 1 am confident tlie citizens are
sincere in asking me to make sueh a
eaerillco they will be willing tu support good men for aldermen who, if
ja'lected, will he willing to support me
*in carrying out the policy as above
.1. P. Kink.
Dated at Cranbrook, January nth,
Much against his own inclination,
hut doing that, whieh he thought to
he to the best interests of Cranbiook, Alderman .1. I*. Kink has
allowed his name to be plan-it on
nomination for tlie office of mayor.
His manifesto, which appears in this
issue of the Herald, is clear and distinct. There is mi "beating about
lhe hush." It is all lair and above
hoard, Mr. Kink v,ery wisely points
out lhat, if elected, ho will expect
that the aldermen elected shall as-
Ktimo their share of the responsibility
of ihe governmenl of the eity. This
is riglil and for this to lie carried
out it is necessary that, the ratepayers of Crnnbrook elect men who
are capable and willing to assume
these responsibilities. A citizens'
ticket will be placed in the field and
with the nomination of Mr. Kink as
mayor, the following will be nominated as councillors: .lames Ryan, V.
Hyde Buker, Joseph Jackson, George
Johnson, I'. DeVerc Hunt and .lames
Henderson. II would lie well for
voters In look over the men who
comprise tliis list. Janus Rv.in is a
man who frnm the Inst dav lie set

man of business, absolutely honest

-I.inii-s Henderson is a man who
will make an excellent alderman. He
11.is developed exccllenl business qualities and is one who will he inde-

Tho groal beauty of this ticket is

machines and gambling should not be

Laving been Coiulueleil In a Satisfactory manner during the past, year 1
propose to make no change." This
plank in Mt. Kink's platform should
be eminently satisfactory in all parlies. Mr. Kink will have no com-
liiilhv rooms and will ask no voter
lor his or her vote.
J. I>. MeBride has been asked by a
number of ratepayers to stand for
mayor. Last week a committee 10-
p resent Ing about one hundred ratepayers of Cranbrook who had signed
a petition asking J. D. MeBride to
stand as a candidate for mayor
waited upon that gentleman. Mr.
McBride stated lhat he had lio de-
sin- to be a candidate l.n any ufhc
but since there had boon an expression of such a large proportion of
the ratepayers of Cranbrnnk, he Ml
that it was bis duty to accord to the
request made. He further stated to
the committee that it would bo a
personal sacrifice on his part to accept such u nomination, as the performance of the duties of the office
of mayor would materially interfere
with the management of his business
yet. he deemed it his duty to accept
the tender that had boon made to
bim bv so many ratepayers of the
A representative of the Herald saw
Mr. MeBride this afternoon ami asked
him as to the personnel of the al-
dermatiic ticket that would lie running with bim. Mr. MeBride said:
"1 have im information as to the
make-up nf any ticket and cannot givi;
i.ui what ymi desire. So far as 1
.nu concerned I am simply acting at
lhe request of the petition which
has been presented ami consequently
am imt a candidate of any clique or
faction hut simply running because
I consider it my duty as a citizen
to obey the behest of a request such
as was presented to mc." Although the Herald is evidently not
in the confidence of the element who
are arranging for a ticket to bo
placed iu the field in support ot Mr.
McBride and in consequence has
never been advised as to any movements un the part of those'interest,
ed in that way, yet it has made an
honest endeavor to secure the news
for the benefit of its readers. A
representative of the Herald saw
Alderman McCowan this afternoon,
who is credited as being the leader
of the movement to elect Mr. McBride and nn aldermanic ticket to
iippmi him. On ..-eing askod the
names nf those who composed this
Idormnnlc ticket, Mr. McCowan
said: "There will be a full ticket
but I cannot tell you all the names
yet. There will be a meeting in a
day or two after which I .shall know
but so far as 1 know st present J.
I). MeBride will run for
mayoi and Messrs. II. Hickenbotham,
T. S. C*ill. Wm. Klowers, J. J. Kennedy and myself will be on the ballot
per fur aldermen."
Tbe following was published by the
Nelson Daily News on Tuesday:

I Iail the editor of the Colonist and
Mr. Mclliide, gone farther, and flUOt-
ed  the words Immediately following:

Victoria, li. C„ Jan. I.—Three
wireless telegraph stations out of tlm
five erected by the Dominion government iu llrilisli Columbia, arc now
iu communication with each other,
llu1 Pacheiia station on tbe weal coast
uf Vancouver island, near tho scene
of the terrible Valencia wreck, having successfully exchanged messages
with that at Goiwnles Hill, Victoria.
The Pnehtoim station was completed two weeks ago, but did not
at once send messages to Victoria.
While tbe Instruments weie being adjusted a report was circulated t" the
effect that the two stations could
not communicate on account of tlie
mouutalnmis character of tbe intervening country. This proved to ho
entirely erroneous, however, as n
few hours after tlio story was circulated. Superintendent Haugbton, of
Iho (i.mzalcs Hill station, received
ibe first message Irom the west coast
operators expressing congratulations
at the establishment    uf cominunica-

Tbe Dominion government lias now
in operation wireless stations at
Victoria, Pachona Point, both on
Vancouver Island, nnd Point Grey,
on the mainland, near Vancouver.
Two more stations, both on this
island, at Estovan and Cape Lazo,
are completed and will be working
within a week or two. Already the
operating stations luivo proved valuable, communication with the mainland having been maintained when
llie regular telegraph service was do-
ranged by the recent storms. Re-'
ports have also been received from
the vessels of the PttCtnc Const
steamship company's fleet, running
between Victoria, Pugot Sound and
San Francisco, which have proved ot
great value to shipping men.
As the C. P. R. steamships and
other vessels sailing from these
waters to the Orient, are to be
equipped witli wireless apparatus
shortly, the utility of tbe government's service will soon be demonstrated on a larger scale.
The system used on tbe government stations is the Shoemaker,
which ean communicate with any
oilier system. The stations have,
up tu the present, given complete
satisfaction and their value iu case
i.f emergency as well as in times of
quiet, is already reali/.ed by those
eonneeted with'marine matters on
this coast-
C P. Hill, the coal baron of
I lillciesi, Alberta, spent a few
hours in Cranbrook today. .Mr. Hill
is of the opinion that llilicresl Is
destined to become the commercial
center uf a very large area of coal
producing country. A new hotel,
containing 10 rooms and steam
lit'.iit'il aud electric lighted, was turned over to .Mr. Hill today by tbe
contractor, completed. Within a
distance of three quarters uf a mile
from tbe dour uf ibis hotel thero arc
line producing eoal mines. Tlie
tiuiiii entrance to the Frank mine is
three quarters ol a mile distant, the
Uellovuo mine is only half a mile
ii wa y, t in- Maple I a-af lies three-
quarters of a mile to the west, the
Leitcb collieries three quarters of a
mile to the east, and the Hillcrcst
mine is within half a mile. The
llillcreast mines, ol whieh Mr. Hill
is managing director, are producing
700 tons of coal per day. This coal
is of exceptionally good quality as a
steam coal, and the 0, P. R. is using it on their passenger trains.
Five hundred thousand dollars have
been expended oil developing this
mine and, Mr. Hill tells tbe Herald five hundred thousand more will
be expended during tie next year or
two iu building cottages ami In other
improvements. C. P. Hill i.s a man
who has done much to develop.* the
resources of southern Hritish Columbia and Alberta. Ih' Is a pleasant
gentleman to meet nnd an all round
good (business man and with all a
| good fellow.
London, Jan. ti—The London
Times has passed from the control
of the Walter family, which has owned it and conducted it for three generations, since it wns first established. Arthur Pearson, one of two
journalistic magnates of London, has
[secured the newspaper. A company
[has heen formed witb Mr. Pearson as
i managing director. He will assume
l the active management of the paper.
Arthur Walter, president ot the uld
company, becomes chairman of the
'hoard of directors of (bo new company. The announcement, of this
i change will be made public in London
. tomorrow.
That Cranbrook is one of the most
orderly towns in tlie west everybody
admits and tbis is due, in no small
way, lo tbe city police force. Serious
crime is practically unknown      and
Ipetlv offences on the police magistrates docket are few and far between.     Harsh measures have    very
! seldom to be resulted to, but tact;
,nul common sense take the place of
lbe club and huudcun's. Thief Cory
li.iw i.s a natural born policeman
and has bad vears ul experience, not
only as chief' of police for this city
but' also un the provincial force.
Officer 1). McLean Ims been on the
city force ever since incorporation
and is a favorite with everybody. A
courteous gentleman at all times and
a lirst-class officer. G. Moore,
who is iu cbaigc of the city lockup,
although be has been oa lhe force
only a short- time, has shown himself to be the right man in thu
right place. The people of Cranhrook are proud of their city and
its orderliness and this same orderliness reflects great credit on tbo
city police force.
If all goes well witb the application uf tlio company known as tho
Eastern H. C. railway company for
permission to build a railway, the
lust ten miles of which will run from
Uie Crows Nest Pass tu tbe Loup,
Uritisli Columbia, will within a
lew months have another big producing coal cumpaiiy, says lbe Victoria
Colonist, An intimation that the
company will apply for incorporation
at tlio next session of parliament has
appeared for the last few weeks in
t uc Hritish Columbia Gazette.
It now transpires that back of
tbe company ls i>. C. Curbin, the
well known capitalist and railway
man uf Spokane.
.Ur. Corbin has in Eastern Kootenay some 17 coal measures. J. A.
Harvey, legal adviser to Mr. Corbin
i.as been in the city closing up tlie
details which transform the leases
iuto patented claims. In all Mr.
t'urbiu will have over 10.UUU acres ul
coal lands in the district and hence
tlie importance ol the construction
of llie railway mentioned as it will
lap llie country where the above
coal measures lie.
Tlie hill came up at the last session of the provincial legislature but
was killed in committee.

Oftentimes wc have seen a t.tll
ship glide up against the tide us it
drawn hy some invisible bow-line,
with a hundred strong aims pulling
it. Her sails wero unfilled, her
si reamers wero all drooping, she
had neither side-wheel nor stetn-
wltcel; slill she moved on stately, in
serene triumph, as with her own life.
Hut we knew that «.n the other si.te
uf the ship, hidden beneath the ere.it
hulk that swam so majestically,
there was a little toilsome steam
tug, with a heart nf lire, and arms
of iron, that was tugging it bravely
on; and we knew that il the little
steam tug untwined her arms and
left the ship it would wallow and
roll about, and drift hither and
thither, and co off with tbe refluent
tide no man knows where. And so
we have known more than one genius.
hlgh-deok, full-freighted, idle-sailed,
but that tor tho hare, toiling arms,
.md brave, warm-heating heart of
the faithful little wife that nestles
close tu him, would have tone down
with the stream, and have been
hoard of no more.

school, the teacher learns more than
the best scholars, simply because the
leaeher is compelled to solve nil the
difficult problems and answer all the
questions of the indolent pupils. Do
it yourself. Never mind though Ihey
do look dark. Do not ask even a

Kvery trial increases your ability
and ymi will finally succeed by dint
nf tho very wisdom and strength
gained in ihe effort, even though, at

him, has only one desire in this municipal matter, und that is to sen
Cranbrook advance as rapidlv as possible.
If ynu vole righl you will vnfe for
J. P. Fink for mayor. 4iid the
council men on his ticket. That
will mean Increased prosperity.
Whut do you want for the Text
year? A town that is closed ep
entirely against outsiders, or a
town that extends the bund ol
welcome to the lumber jack, lo tlie
miner, to nil who labor in ihis dis
trict, asking them to make their
headquarters in Cranbrook II you
want a town that is open to ell,
and not a town that is emit rolled by
radicals, vote for J. P. Fink for
mayor and the aldermen who bnck
him up in his policy.
If you are a property owner or n
wage earner in Cranbrook it is your
duty to protect yourself. The best.
way to do that is to vote for J. P. j
Fink for mayor and the aldermen onl
his ticket. The reason for this is
that they arc broad-minded people
with liberal Ideas and will do all
that they can to make Craubrwk   a1
hotter, a bigger and a more prosperous town. That means more
money each year for every man or
.everv' woman who has any material
'interests in the city of Craubrook.
Elbert  Hubbard, the philosopher of
Kast Aurora, New York, has framed
the following New Year's pledge (or
the readers ot his publication,    The
Phylistine:   "1 will tabu the gabfest,
kibosh   the   killjoy,     hikerino     the
pooh   pooh,   cut the     grumps    and
grouch and get onto my job."     A-
of which when being translated Irom
the United States dialect, as used in
Kast  Aurora, would appear to mean: j
""a Ik less,   smile more, quit running
down   lhe    other   lellow, turn    tbet
bright side out for general inspection ■
and work-    The same is a good col-1
lection of ideas fur the citizens     of
othei places besides Kast Aurora-
The organization ot a Farmers' Institute iu tlie district is another mile
stone passed on the road to the
prosperity of lhe country. The
Cranbrook-Feruie Farmers* Institute
district includes the whole ot the
Cranhrook and the Fernie electoral
districts, aird has within its limits
..ue of llie largest areas ot undeveloped agricultural land in the province. The forming of this institute
will give the farmers, ranchers, fruit
growers aud agriculturalists of the
district au opportunity of not only
hearing lectures by the gentlemen
appointed hv the government but, as
Mr. Fenwlck so aptly put it last
nighl: "It will teach them how to
work out their own salvation and
that of Ihe district by reporting tin
various experiments they make and
the results obtained to the institute,
so that each may profit by the ex
peiience uf lhe oilier." It is to be
hoped Ihal the institute will have
frequent and regular meetings and it
is up to, not only the farmers, but tn
the townspeople also, to see to it
thai the enthusiasm which was displayed last night is not allowed to
Hag. The Herald takes the stand
that what is good for the development of the resources ot the country
along any line is for the good ot the
whole community. The Farmers' Institute may rely upon lhe hearty
support of the Herald at all times
and its columns arc open for any
articles of merit and value that may
he prepared for the benefit of the
members, free of cost to the association.
Should not those in charge of the
city's health look carefully into the
matter of the Chinese market gardeners swill wagons? Who would for
one moment tolerate one's vegetables
being hauled and delivered from the
same dirty wagon hox in which
swill for the swine in hauled, If a
white man were doing it? Yet the
Chinamen do it every day and the
people take their medicine. Vegetables washed in pools in which the
Chinese swill-fed swine wallow is
another menace to the public health
which sliould he looked into and stopped at once. It is distinctly up t<
the health authorities of the city to
look inlo this matter.
Several months ago the editor ot
the Herald said lhat he would support for mayor of Cranbrook either
(1. T. Rogers or J. P. Fink. In
municipal matters the Herald does
not permit politics to control it-
It believes in working for the best
men and for the best interests of
lf you vote for J. P. Fink for
mayor and the couucilmen named on
his ticket, you will vote for a body
of meu who are broad-minded, yet
conservative, and who will do all
in their power to advance the very
best interests of Cranbrook. Can
you afford to turn down men of that
character at a time like tbis?
Tbe Herald has been abused hy
many reformers and yet tbe Herald
was the only paper that had the
courage to condemn and run out the
pimps and tin born gamblers. The
Herald is proud of its record in this
I. P. Fink, has shown by his proclamation, that he is a proper man
for mayor of Cranbrook. He is not
after the office, hut if elected everybody knows that J. P. Fink will be
mayor and no one else. He has
said ihal he is opposed to gambling
very form in this city and that
means that Mayor Fink will maintain
clean lown.
1. I), McBride has been one of the
most successful business men in
Cranbrook, and the Herald has no
doubt that if he could have full control as mayor be would give the city
f Cranhrook a most admirable administration. Uut .1. 0. McBride as
mayor, with a council that has not
the proper conception of the growth
of a western lown, with a council
that perhaps does not believe in the
progress that is necessary to   make
great and growing town would
he helpless. That Is whv the Herald
s not in |,ivor of J. D. McBride for
mayor. The Herald considers nothing in Hie way of politics, nothing in
the way of individuals hut nnly looks
the best interests ot (-ranbrook.
It believes Hint the election ot .1. P.
Fink tor mayor nnd a council that
has been named with him is fur the
very best interests of Cranhrook.
And in saying this the Herald says
nothing against the personality of
individuals on tlie other ticket.
The Herald editor has lieen a friend
of all whom have been named on
the opposition ticket and hopes    to
ntinue to be the same but at this
time he believes that it is to the
interest of tho property owners and
the business men to do all in their!
power to elect .1. P. Fink for mayor
md all of tbose who arc named on
the ticket with him. |
