■If we look ai this vast forest area
from The manufacturer's point of

for the arts ami industries, of its
commercial value, ami study merely
the geography and nature of the
country in the llglrt ol the reports

and mistakes whieh, alas, it is "too

words, spoken in a monienl of auger
to the dearest friend you had on
earth; ah! you would give years nt

But you know that cannot be, for the
snows ol many winters have already

men .out tti.ui(.u iui vqu.il services

composed ot unions scattered
throughout the United States and
..allium, and iis jurisdiction extends
irom Alaska u> the Philippines. Each
linal union administers its local
affairs in comformity with luteraa-
natlonnl rules and rogulatlons, said
rules ami regulations being developed
- 1 "iiibined local unions and ad-
.nlnlstered by a central body known
t_ the executive council in the interest of all Hie locals. This executive
council is composed oi certain of
ue International olllcers, who arc
elected by the referendum lor terms
.1 two years.
When, moro than fifty years ago,
,'pieseutatives from tho unions scattered throughout the Uulted Slates
met mid organized a national body,
which developed into the present International organization, the initia-
and referendum were tint little
known or used, so that, up to about
ten years ago the annual convention,
composed ol delegate:: trom the afli-
i.i'lcil unions, elected all of the lutei-
imtiuual officers and formulated the
and A'gulatious. This bus now
iiceu changed. While the annual
delegate convention is retained, all
of the International officers are
nominated and elected by tho referendum, legislation is initiated and all
constitutional laws and amendments
must be submitted to the referendum.
in fact, the way iu which these men
and women, associated in a volun-
aiy organization for their collective
benefit, govern themselves is one of
the greatest expositions ol democracy
Noi only does each local union
govern itself, but, each Union shop is
organized into a chapel, the members
elect a chairman and secretary and
such other officers ns Ihcy may deem
necessary, depending upon the size ui
the chapel. The chapel formulates
and adopts rules tor the government
if its members and it is the dutyid
the chapel olllcers to sec thai all
inion and chapel laws arc lived up
:o. These chapels ale uot only for
he benefit ol the members, hut are a
protection lo the employers, as the
members are as zealous in seeing that
the office rules are observed as they
are to see that tin* union laws aro
lived up to.
All members of a uniuu have a
voice in the discussion of all matters
loforo ihe union, but ouly those who
have been members iu good standing
.... six months have a vote on certains questions, such as, for instance,
amending the constitution, changes iu
the wage scale or to declare a

insl resort ia this uniun, and is only

years the Herald has said: "Wateh
Cranbrook-grow," and she has. The
Herald now says "Watch Cranhrook
grow during 1908."
Almost daily the Herald has been
receiving complaints from parties
who subscribed lo the Montreal Herald and Weekly Star and to the
Winnipeg Free Press, through tbe
Herald. In each case the Herald Ii
in reccpt of au acknowledgment o
thu money and bas written to the
Free I'ress, through whom the subscriptions were taken. The Herald
wishes that each and every individ-
■lal who subscribed for these papers
....uld notify the Herald if they are
in -1 receiving them. The Herald
.s determined io find out where the
fault Hes and to see to it that its
patrons get the papers tbey sub-
scrfbed for.
'■What new&papers do you read, aud
what; are the reasons for your
ohoico?" i.s the only question asked
hy a Sau Francisco psychologist. It
is enough. ia answering such,
([liestion a man lays bear his Inmost
moral character and intellectual'

I The first step In the matter of
the establishment of a provincial
university in British Columbia, was
taken last week by the minister of
education, who brought down a bill,
m the local bouse, to set. aside two
million acres of land as an endowment for a university. Tbat tbe
University of British Columbia must
lie established Is without question
ll.e province is growing rapidly and
.. home academic restitution for the
:i.iining of British Columbians
■ lie sciences and arts Is becoming
moro badly needed day by day. The
I nivt'isity of British Columbia should
in- eslahlisbed at. some point in the
province that is convenient, healthy
..nil situated among beautiful nut*
niurrdlflgs Looking ovei all t.he
towns in British Columbia, and many
til ihem are suitable, tiie Herald is
..I opinion t-hn* vo city in the province i' ii .wm'mMy suited for college p ip <Ht us Cranbrook. Situated ai i'»n ■ the mountains but- still
not. ne; : ( tr-.tpii io them to create
n sense of bring crowded, with ;,
climate that is surpassed by no
spot on earth, and convenient by rail
to all parts of the province, Cranbrook would make an ideal university
eity. A university or any scholastic
institution should never be established in a very larste city.; a smaller
town is undoubtedly the best place
for a seat nf learning. No doubt,
when the University of British Columbia becomes a'Iac4, one of the
principle science courses wilt be that
of geology, for the reason that min-
Ing, iu all its branches is, and will
to for years to come, one of tbe
principle industries of tin province,
This being the ease students at the
University or Hritish Columbia, established in i-rattbrook mav tiM only
learn all the Hieory hut can have
practical Instruction as well in the
bills adjacent to the town. Forestry,
favor of Cranhrook as an educational
center is the fact that it is a city of
h'jmes and the people of this cilj
are highly Intellectual and cultivated
and would welcome the establishment
Of a propaganda here. This is not
a matter of polities, il is purely a
provincial matter, one which both
rt-Ics should get together and do
their utmost to put through,

I're.sideui ItooBevell, in a special
message to Congress, delivered one
of the greatest state papers ever issued by an American president, ilr.
Roosevelt still maintains his position as a friend of the masses and
at the same time makes the declaration that honest wealth should br-
protected! The corporations of thi
States have had a clear field for
such a long time, that it has been
again and again' a case of the "public tie damned." President Roosevelt is the first champion of the
people in his position since Lincoln,
and his name will livo in history as
one of the greatest presidents in
lhe Fni ted States. Possessed of an
intense desire to do absolutely what
Is right, regardless ol consequences,
fearless i.o an extreme, the president
has done mors to curb the actions of
predatory wealth i.bun any other mac
in history. There is no other man

and Bryan is loud in his praise of
Is it possible to find a spot more
eminently situated for a university
than Cranbrook?     No.
A newspaper may be aud should
be the most vital and effective instrument that society can produce for
Its own advancement and protection,
and its true business welfare, in the
long run, lies in a complete, Intelligent and sympathetic devotion to
public interests. It has been the
aim of the Herald since its first issue, on March 2'-3nd, 1838, until
today io give this complete, intelligent and sympathetic devotion to tbe
public- of Cranbrook and the district.
In Its endeavor to do this it has not
pleased everyone, because there are
always those in a community who
place their own personal interests far
in advance of the. interests of the
public and when a matter of a public
nature comes up they can only see
through the smoked glasses of their
own selfifljiness. The Herald does not
wish to be understood as saying thai
it is always right and never wrong,
but this much It can say, on every
occasion, when the opportunity has
offend, it has completely, as tar as
possible, as intelligently as its de-
eernmem would alkiw and as sympathetically as it knew how endeavored to advance the interests of Cranbrook and the district.
Lot everyone do all in their power
in induce the government- to make
Cranbrook British Columbia's University town.
