Cltlsens Indignant at the Way Coast Cities are Fattening at
Expense of Inland Cities — No  Lack of
Patriotism or Loyalty
There have been "wigB upon the
green" lu local circles tho Inst fow
days over the removal of tlio recruits,
and as a result of thc activity some
interesting information Ims been gained as to how the whole affair has
been muddled and Information kept
from the civic ullii-luls so that thu recruits would bn forced lo go to tha
Coast for training.
The plea of Col. Women, Lieut, Ban-
field and others was that tho men
could not obtain uniforms or equip-1
ment unless and until tliey rejwrteil at
Battalion headquarters-,r. the Coast,
and that It was seriously Interfering
with military efficiency to keep the
men here for the winter. Word now
comes from the highest military olll-1
clal ln the Dominion, no less an authority than the Minister of Militia, that
the men could and can obtain full
equipment while in Cranbrook, and
giving instructions as to the proper
Cranbrook has proven Its loyalty
and patriotism by the number ot recruits enlisted here, tne largest of any
place of similar size in B. C, and by
its generous contributions to the patriotic fund, and it certainly is not
with any desire to interfere with military efficiency that the citizens object to the removal of troops to thc
Coast cities for training. They do believe, however, that for business interests the Coast cities and politicians
have been trying to "hog" the whole
thing, and from the foregoing Information, obtained only upon recourse to
military headquarters at Ottawa, it
looks as though the situation had been
correctly sized up.
This Ib a deplorable condition of
affairs. Successful recruiting depends
upon tbe whole-hearted support ot the
entire public, and lt certainly Is not
conducive to earning that support to
see one district trying to fatten It
self nt thc expense ur another. Cranbrook nnd the wholo of Must Kootenay
has nmde u glorious record for Itself
In tlie number of recruits enlisted to
date, and huve every intention of continuing to do tholr full Bhnro to secure the ultimate complete triumph of
our cause. It Ib only fair and Just

Public Meeting
A public meeting was called by the
Mayor last Saturday afternoon to dls-
euss matters In connection with the
training of recruits here or allowing
them to go to the Coast. Mayor Clapp
occupied thc chair.
The flrst speaker was Ex-Mayor
Bowness, who claimed that pol'tlcal
pull and the inaction ot our local Dominion ond Provincial representatives
were responsible for Cranbrook not
receiving proper treatment in the matter ot establishing training quarters
here. He urged that the Mayor recall his permission for the removal ot
part of the recruits unless Cranbrook
receives definite assurance that this
will be made training or battalion
headquarters tor tho district.
In the main the other spe-kers,
among whom were Messrs. W. S. Santo
3. P. Fink, W. B. McFarlane, M. A.
Beale, agreed that lt was a case of
political pull and business Jobbery at
the Coast to get all recruits transferred there as soon aa possible.
The Mayor claimed his consent to
the removal of 65 of the recruits had
been obtained by misrepresentation,
ond he was willing to withdraw the
consent given. A committee consisting of Mayor Clapn, Mr. J. M. Christie,
President of the Board of Trade, and
Mr. W. B. McFarlane; President of the
Conservative Association, were appointed a committee to deal with the

I am sorry I waited as (hey were so

the other day. It waB fine. 1 heated
them up and whipped the cream, and
say! It was Just like being at home.
All the boys enjoyed tliem, and the
cake, It was delicious. All the boys
asked me'whether mother hnd put any
port in the-pudding, because It tasted
so much like it. I told them I didn't
think to, aa she whs not in thc habit
of doing It. We all thank you both
very much.

Our Marysville correspondent this
week sends us the following:
A delegation of ranchers met at the
home of W. Y. Awmack on Wednesday last, to discuss the laying out of
a road from thc existing Government
road terminating on Lat. 11612 and
connect up with all or as near as
possible all tlie ranchers in that vicinity, nearth east of Marysville. All
tlie ranchers whose property the proposed road would run through were
present, bo there will be no after
The proposed road was blazed
through Pljhins L 6356, thence south
to AIvcb L 11609, thence east to Judas L6625, thenco south east to Aw*

the line of Pinley's and Johnson's
11625 and 11622, thence south through
Hughes 11620 onto Staple's old logging
road to Wycliffe. The easiest grade
possible waa found so thnt It would

road has been drawn, and will In due

Our Fort Steele correspondent sends

expenses, was $20. Mrs. Fenwick
donated $8 from her embroidery fund.
Tho programme of the concert was
as follows:
Overture, "March Invincible" (Sou-
sa) Cranbrook orchestra; Bong "Somewhere a Voice Is Calling", MIbs M.

Special credit ts due thc Cranbrook
Orchestra for their rendering of
Soiibu's famous march "invincible",
nlso the duct given by Mrs. Arnold
Wallinger and Mr. Parker "Amaran-
thus" by Glider found n very appreciative audience.
Mr. Agnhob's Impersonation of
Harry Lnudcr was clever and all en-
Joyed a hearty laugh.
Tho farce "Mixed Pickles" was very
amusing as there was a vein of humor
straight through lt. Also It was well
acted. Of course It ended very fittingly—that Is—happily. Mr. Attree made
a very competent stage manager.
At the dance there were a fair number of visitors. There wero from
Cranbrook Messrs. Davison, Noel and
Gordon Wallinger and others; Mr.
Quartly, Wasa; Mr. Coleman, Inver*

Cranhrook, 11. C, February 3rd, 1916
Did you get that slogan ln those columns last week: "CKANBltOOK HAS
MONEY?" It Is worth repeating over
snd oter because it's true. Wc have
the mineral wealth nnd It Is up to the
residents here to spread tlio glad tidings ln season and out of season.
The CrcBton Review has entered
upon its eighth yenr. Under the present editor, C. P. Hayes, the Itcvlew has
become a bright, newsy, well-edited
sheet, which has earned and occupies
an Important niche In the affairs of
Creston. For "ourself" wc must confess that wo look forward from week
to week with pleasurable anticipation
to see what the Creston llcvlow bus to
say editorially. Editor Hayes lias a
style all his own, original and unique
with a heaped-up measure of good
common sense and business judgment.
He does not Indulge In ancient classical language nor flowing rhetorics hut
he has the somewhat unusual gift ot
expressing himself in good common
ordinary everyday easily-understood
Not many local papers In B. C. can
say as Editor Hayes said last week:
"We believe wo havo had most every
dollar that was expended on either
advertising or commercial printing
sad the loyalty ot our citizens and
business bouses in thia detail Is warmly appreciated also. Failing to receive this loyal support would have
meant a short stay here for the writer."
lt is to be regretted that some perhaps well-meaning but certainly ill'
advised person or persons should descend to the anonymous sending of
whits feathers through the mal! to
those whom thc sender thinks should
enlist. Various Cranbrook young men
have received one of these tokens recently. The Bender of these missives
is not living up to the true principles of British fair play or Justice, ls
not *plsylng the game" openly und
above-board, but Is skulking under the
cover of anonymity, and doing more
harm than good to the cause of enlistment.
Every man must settle with his own
conscience tho question whether or
not he will don the uniform nnd light
for King and Country. That Is the
glorious privilege which ls ours by
right of citizenship In thc British Empire. Were we living In the Oerman
Empire we would have no choice but
to answer the roll call nnd march out
when ordered, and even to slaughter
babes and Innocents at the command
of My superior officer. Thc British
Empire stands for right against might,
for liberty against coercion, for Justice against oppression,, nnd when
ths Empire needs our services to up-
hold those principles against the rtith-

Tho investigation now being mado
by the Federal Trudo Commission in-
'.o the conditions of the lumbering Industry has brought out In an emphatic
way the opinion held by American
lumbermen that far more Ib being
done to help the Industry on the British Columbia side of the boundary
than in tlio United States.
"British Columblu" stated counsel at
the recent hearing at Washington D.
Ci "Is laying the foundations ot a
preferential tariff. An active virile
commonwealth producing the same
commodity and competing In the same
markets is aiding its own lumber industry ln every reasonable way. Officials there are progressive and awake
to the opportunities of the day."
Tlie brief filed wltll the Commission
by the West Coast Lumber Manufacturers Association states: "There is
no question ns to the British Columbia
Governmental policy toward the industry. It appears ln every law and
in every act. The attitude of the Forest Brnneh Is best expressed by Its
representative: 'It ls our business to
help tlio industry in every possible
way. We are practically In partnership with it.' This extends not only
to export, but to domestic trade as
well. The entire subject is handled
methodically and Intelligently with
tlie fixed and definite purpose of
furthering and fostering the Industry
In every possible way."

of Montenegro. Montenegro la a lltt'e
state of loss than six thousand squaro '■

strength did not exceed fifty thousand
at tho beginning of the war, and today It Is probably not greater than a

Mining ln Canada means more today than It did before. Its gold and

The Industry In Canada has scarcely begun Ub career. Here and thero
over Its extensive metalliferous surface the prospector has scratched to
Iiml riches that haunt the Imagination. Tho capitalist has followed, with
the public in his train, the engineer
has been Bet to work, and from the
rocks of Ontario, BrltlBh Columbia, the
Klondike and Nova Scotia, hundreds of
millions in bullion and ingots have
been drawn to supply the consuming
markets of the world.
In minerals Canada is probably the
richest country In the world. In the
names, Klondike, Cobalt, Porcupine
and Sudbury there Is magic. During
the past eleven years Cobalt haB produced nearly 175,000,000 ounces of
silver at a value approximating »9B,-
000,000. Only three years ago New
York woke up one morning to find that
Porcupine gold had arrived at Wall
Street. Since then yellow metal worth
;20,000,000 has been produced by the
Tho value of gold production In Porcupine and British Columbia during
1915 was $14.534,000, compared with
,11.204,000 In 1914 and 110,690,000 In
1013. The value of silver produced
in Cobalt alone In 1915 was $11,000,000
against 112,796,000 In 1914, and 116,
jI9,000 In 1913. Pig Iron production
in Canada was 850,000 tons ln 1919,
igalnst 783,000 tons tn 1914, and 1,-
1211,000 in 1913, while the output of
steel Ingots was 976,000 tons, against
814,000 tons In 1914, and 1,169,000 tons
n 1913. In nine months of 1916 Sudbury mines produced 15,370,000 in nickel, in the matte, or more Uian during the whole of any previous year.
The year's copper output at Sudbury
ind in British Columbia was worth
approximately 112.000,000.

greeting card and the following letter
from Private Robert Ersklne, on active service with the British Expeditionary force ln France:
Dear Sir—A Happy New Year to one
and all. I hope the old paper still
gets enough to eat these prehistoric
days or are things completely on the

ahead as usual; they are here. 1 met
Harvie Handley out here last month
and a few more ot the boys. They
were'all dying to get a go at Frits.
The climate out here ls something
grand; something sublime about it—
I don't think! If I ever get home to
the Brook I will hire out as a grave-
digger or a mud lark. It ls all mud
here, nice aUcky stuff, you know. The
kind I mean, something like Lethbridge mud, the further you walk the
more that seems to stick to your
boots. Alex Taylor, Drummond, Ted
Gommer and a few moie ot the boys
are In England. Some are gone on
the long Journey where there Ib no
return, some are crippled for life and
some of us are still returning the
compliments of the season to Fritz.
A tew of the never-do-wells are still
drinking the same old beer, stronger
It we can- get our hand on It, but the
lady behind the counter out here says
"Rum no compre. toot sweet allee
alley you compre dat?"
Well I don't think I will waste any
more of your valuable tune only the
Canadians returned everything in tho
shape of bouquets that Frits handed
out to us. If he started anything we
finished It, so I will bid goodbye to all
or au rsvolr as the case may be. I

Bed Cross Notes
At the meeting on January 27th
Mrs. Richardson waa "In charge" generally.
A visitor at a Red Cross meeting
would carry away many Impressions.
The main ones would be, the speed
of the needles, the sound of tearing
cotton, and the oft repeated "Ah, one
more finished."
The Uble at the beginning of a meeting ls piled high with factory cotton
and gray wool. But, as things progress, the cotton being torn in strips
and distributed, snd the stacks of wool
dwindling away to a single strand (or
less) the table soon looks quite bare.
