Thoro was a fair attendance at the
annual hoard of trado meeting on
Tuesday of this wook, though when it
openod thoro were only about a dozen
present. The numbers Increased, however, us the meeting progressed, till
ultimately thero were possibly forty
or so in attendance.
Mr. G. J. Spreull, the 1!)20 president,
opened the meeting and called for the
reading of the minutes of the last animal meeting and also of the executive sessions held during the year,
These were adopted as road.
Reports of committees were next In
order, and Mr. W. H. Wilson, for the
publicity committee reported that
booklets had been issued during the
past year, and advertising matter inserted ln the Automobile Blue Book,
a tourists' handbook, Henton's Annual and Wrlgley's Directory. Another
booklet was now in course of preparation. He stated that the volume of
correspondence In connection with the
publicity work was now getting such
tbat the services of a paid secretary
ought to be employed to cope with It,
and allow of prompt replies being sent
J. P. Fink reported briefly for the
Retail Merchants, and R. E. Benttle
for the Agricultural Committee. The
latter emphasized the importance of
Irrigation for St. Mary's Prairie, and
urged the investigation of a pumping
proposition as a cheaper mothod of
bringing tbis about. E. H. McPhee
read quite a comprehensive report for
the Mining Committee. The reports
of committees were adopted en bloc.
Mr. Spreull than declared the offices of the board vacant in accordance
with the constitutional procedure, In
preparation for the election of officers
for the new yenr. Messrs. Spreull
und Harris were voted to the chairmanship and secretaryship of the

Tho election of a secretary-treasurer was left to tbe executive as usual.
Members of the executive were chosen
as follows: Messrs. J. IL McQuaid.
G. J. Spreull, F. M. MacPherson. C.
J. Little, W. D. Gilroy, W. A. Nisbet,
G. V. Marsh and A. A. MacKinnon.
On a motion tho secretary was also
added to tlit. personnel of the executive, with power to bote.
Tho matter of holding periodical
meetings was also brought up, and the
experiment of holding monthly public
nieottiigs^wlll be trlul, in tho hope thnt
the nttonda'ACQ at theso meetings will
justify their continuance. Mr. Marsh
made a suggestion for a periodical
luncheon followed by n businoss ses-
. skin, which he had known to work
out very successfully on Vancouver
Island, and quarterly tneellngl wore
also suggested.
A motion offered by Messrs. Spreull
and Wilson to tho effect thnt representation* be made lo tbe proper authorities to havo tho assi2e court transferred from Feruli to Cranbrook was
carried unanimously. It was also suggest! d that an effort bo made to In-
cludo Fort Sleek, and Bull River in
this judicial district, and this will alio bo dune, when the feeling of the
people ut Bull River has been ascertained on the matter.
A resolution was offered by II. E.
IbMittio, to tlie effect that tho city
council bo approached or memorialized on the urgent Importance of keeping civic expenditures down to tho
lowest possible figure. He mentioning the figure of 85 mills ns a possible limit, with the suggestion that
there wero other ways of raising civic rovonue than direct taxation, and
this provoked some iIIbcusbIou. The
general feeling was that to keep
things down to that figure would be
difficult, in view of the fact that
school and debenture levies alone totalled well over thirty mills. The mo
Hon finally passed, however, but without any reference to a possible tax
rate that might bo struck for the year.
Mr. J. F. Huchcroft, seetetary of
the Prospectors' Association was invited to speak on mining matters In
relation to the Board of Trade, and
touched on several matters of interest. Ho stntod the Prospectors' Association wus doing a good deal of
publicity work, and In this regard an
effort wns being made to co-operate
with tho Board of Trade, and to this

To Be Extended
Bom. Gov't. Including- In Estimates Hum to Provide For
Work In Columbia Valley
(Special to tbe Herald)
INVERMERE,  B.C., Feb. 28— In
answer to tholr petition tho secrotary
of tho Assoclutod Boards of Trades of
south-eastern British Columbia has
received definite word from tiio authorities at Ottawa that lt is tho intention to Include In tho estimates for
11*21-22 an amount, for tho extension
of the Dominion Government telephone system from Fairmont Hot
.Springs to as far south as Wasa. No
dofiulto assurance can bo given that
this work will be dono but there" Is
great hope expressed that tho line
will nt least bo extended from Fairmont Hot Springs to an fur south as
Canal Flats. Should even thia last
be passed It will be a further addition of 22 miles to tho existing system,
and bring the terminal to within 23
miles of Wasa which place, on the
otlier hand, is the northern terminal
for the Kootenay Central lines.
Should by any chance the system
ba extended through to Wasa it would
then connect such places as Golden
and other points tributary to here up
with the great trunk line systems
leading to such centres as Cranbrook,
Spokane, Vancouver and Calgary. In
fact there would be no limit to the
ultimate possibilities.
The present system centres here
and takes in Golden and the country
to the north and extends east and
west from this point and as far south
as Fairmont Hot Springs. It is hoped
later on that another trunk line will
be put along the line of the Banff-
Windermere road to Banff and thus
make a direct communication to the
oast by way of Calgary.

ed Boards. The matter of the proposed ore-testing plant was mentioned by
Mr. Huchcrltt, who said that an appropriation ot $100,000 had already been
made for its establishment, and he
thought that tho East and West Kootenay organizations should get together and present a united front against
the Coast interests who were trying
to get the plant located there, where
tt would be of mighty little use to
the small mining operator in the Interior. He also Introduced the matter
ot the conttnuance ot the Dominion
Geological Survey work this summer,

Messrs, Spreull and Ward, this matter
was mode the subject of a resolution

ladles' league, the Blmboes, captained
by M. Drummond, will play the Maple
Leafs, captained by C. J. Staples, and
In tbe mens' league Uie Bantams play
tbe Buffs. This game should be a
good one to watch.
Now that tbe baseball leagues have
been fully organized it Is realized that
more attention should be given to the
social activities of the Club and a
strong entertainment committee has
been formed to that end. The members
of the committee are Mesdames C, J.
Staples, C. O. Staples, Spreull, Hogarth, Green, Gilroy, McQuaid, Mackinnon, Baxter, Dallas, Sang, Nesblt,
and Misses Eastman and Sybil White,
Messrs. Hicks, Walllnger, Bristow,
Rengger, Spreull and McLennan.
An attractive program, the main
feature of whicli are given below, has
already been lined up. A monthly
dance will be given on Feb. 25th, Mar.
17th, (St. Patrick's da/,) April 22nd
and May 27. For the dance on February 25th, Bass' orchestra will provide
the music. The supper arrangements
are in the hands of Mrs. Spreull and
Mrs. C. O. Staples. This dance will
be free to members and for non members a charge of 75c will be made.
Refreshments will be 25 cents.
The committee for the dance on
March 27th is composed of Mrs.
Spreull, Mrs. Nesblt, Mr. Bristow and
Mr. McLennan, etc. Special effort
will be made to make the St. Patrick's day affair a good one. Further
particulars about this dance will be
announced later. ■
An informal dance for members only will be held on March 26th trom
S.30 to 11 p.m. The committee in
barge of this dance will be Miss
Eastman, Mrs. Sang, Mr. Rengger
mid Warren Spence.
On March 2nd, April 6th and May

girls undor 15 will be given. The committee for the party on March 2nd is
Composed of Mrs. NeBblt, Mrs. Miles,
Mrs. Roberts and Miss Sybil White.
There will be refreshments, songs,
games, etc., and as the party will last
from 3.30 to 6 it ls hoped that all the
boys and girls will be there as they
will be sure of a good time.
On March 4th at 3 p-m. a whist
drive will be held. The committee In
cliargo will be Mrs. Hogarth, Mrs.
Dallas, Mrs. McQuaid and Mrs. Green.
Further particulars will be announced
On March 12th at 9 p.m. a book
shower nnd muslcnle will be held in
aid of the Club library. Everyone
will bo requested to bring a book to
bu donated to thc library. It Is hoped
In this way to form the nucleus of a
good library for tbo benefit of the
members from which books may bo
borrowed from time to time. The
committee In charge ot the muslcale
will bo Mrs. Green, Mrs. Baxter, Major Hicks, and Mr. Rengger. There
will be refreshments and a good musical program which It ts hoped will attract a large attendance.
Monday night having been set aside
for billies only a ladles' gymnasium
class will be held every Monday night
from 8 to 8.45. Mr. Miriams reports
a fine class of junior girls. As soon
as the gym equipment is secured he
expects to form gymnasium classes for
the boys and men, and later on, say
about the end of April or May, It Is
hoped to stage an exhibition of the
work that Is being done, showing the
Junior boys' and girls' classes together with an exhlbltoln of parallel and
horizontal bar work.
Ab there Is lots of fine talent among the membership an endeavor will
be made, with Mr. Rengger as leader, to form within the Ctyb an Orchestra and Glee Club, and perhaps later
on a Dramatic Club. Any member desirous of taking part in any of these
activities are requested to report to
Mr. Rengger, who will give them a
tryout and decide what parts, etc.,
they are best fitted for.
The next meeting ot the entertainment committee, to map out a program for April, will be bald at the
home of Mrs. Q. J. Spreull on Tuesday
March 12nd, at S o'clock.  It any ot
the members outside of tbe committee
bave any suggestions to make as to
any form of entertainment which will
help to add to the entertainment of
the Club they are requested to drop
them in the suggestion box.
As some of the members appear to
be under some misapprehension as
to the conditions of membership lt
muy be well to state that ali memberships are yearly ones, and members who allow their tines to lapse
during the summer months will be
automatically suspended and cunnoi
be reinstated until all arrears have
been paid. It ls hoi>ed, however, to
keep up the usefulness of the Club us
much as possible during the summer
months. In addition to lho swimming
pool and tea room, which will, of
course, be open all summer, the Club
will probably become the headquarters
for many of the athletic as well us
social activities during tiie warm weather. After a good game of golf or
tennis the swimming pool will look
very inviting, and the locker rooms
will come in very handy for tho baseball players. There ls still roopi for
several new members aud It is hoped
tbat all those who are interested In
good clean healthy sport und social
activities will send lu their applications for membership as soon as possible. It is only by maintaining u
good active membership that the Club
can be kept going, and it has already
proved Itself to' be tbe best thing that
has been started A Cranbrook for the
general good of the community us a

Two Cranbrook rinks, skipped .by
Messrs. G. Hogarth and W. F. Cameron, made a trip to Fernle last Saturday and made a brave but futile effort to bring back the Fleishman Cup,
which has bee., competed for between
the two towns for some years. The
conditions call for two games to be
played simultaneously on the ice of
the holding club. The games were
played on Saturday night, and the
visitors only went down by one point,
22 to 21 being the final total of the
two scores. Skip Cameron won hts

Preparations are now underway to
provide accommodation for spectators
to witness tlie fastest basketball game
of the season which ought to be that
played on Saturday evening next ln
the Recreation Club between a star
team from Nelson aud a picked team
from this city. A balcony is now being built on the north side of the club
extending over Louts Street and opening on to tbe basketball floor. This
will cal for an expenditure of about
$500.00. The contractors, Jones &
Boris, have already entered upon the
work and will finish the- Job In time
for Saturday's big game. The Nelson
team has a reputation extending over
the international boundary, having
played several games with American
teams. Cranbrook's . team however
will go forward with strong assurance. Hard practice and several trial
games have produced a strong local
team and there is no doubt that a fine
exhibition of basketball will be given.
The Cranbrook team is being shaped
up as follows:
A. Crowe, Capt left forward-
M. Argue   right forward
Carl Gill   '■-■ guard
G. McTler   guard,
{To be chosen)  centre
The charge for admission will be
25 cents and tlie game should well be
worth It.
On Monday evening, February 21st,
the marriage took place of Miss Grace

The ceremony took place at the Methodist Parsonage, Rev. R. W. Lee officiating. The bride has lately been
teaching at Vanguard, Sask. She was
attended by her sister, Miss Christine
Carson, while Mr. G. Rouse, of Vanguard acted as groomsman.
The happy couple will reside in a
cottage on tho Wycllffe Road, near
the hospital, and their friends will unite in extending heartiest congratulations to them nt the outset of their
married life.
A reference to the proposed building
of u large Iron antl steel plant "somewhere In the Interior of British Columbia," was made at one of the sessions of the recent con ventlon of
tho Associated Boards of Trade. It
Is understood that this scheme Involves the expenditure of $100,000,000
and is the one being considered by
British steel interests.

provincial government will be Justl-
i'leld in giving support to the establishment of an iron and steel Industry In

To the Stockbreeders of
S. E. Kootenay:
I Intend to make one more attempt
to get our organization completed and
put into shape to do business.
Vou all recognize, I think, that
many things are wrong In this range
and also that the law affecting stock.
brands, hide selling and connected
matters are continually being broken.
Nearly every one has lost considerable money In the last year through
breeding males at large out of season
and through scrubs and dairy males
at all seasons. Ust season wo worked weeks for a visit from tbo Grazing
Commissioner: this year if we intend
to do business we must wait for nobody but to do the work ourselves.
I propose a meeting for Wednesday,
Marcli 2nd, at the city hall. Cranhrook. and that we wipe the slate and
start over again. I am In this thing
for myself and my neighbors. I want
you to bo in It for yourselves nnd
your neighbors. We must help ourselves If wo wish the authorities at
Victoria to come in and listen to our
requests. Are you satisfied with things
ns they are in live stock matters? If
not, show up on March 2nd. If we
cannot pull together, improve conditions, improve our stock, anl improve
the range we had better quit. The
Lands department has money to spend
on our range, but refuses to use It
till we are organized and assist In
handling it. Can we not trust one
another enough to pull together for
all of us? I sm ready to do all I
can to help this along; every one of
us needs a strong body to handle this
matter. If this meeting does not get
tho support of the breeders of tbe
wholo district the matter will be left
for other hands to carry on. 1 do not
feel that I will mako another effort.
Yours truly,
The following from an Ontario
weekly, refers to the death of Mr.
James C. Taylor, father of Mr. SImcn
Taylor, of this city, which was announced last week. Mr. Taylor, sen-,
visited this city some years ago. and
only last year, when Mr. and Mrs. Simon Taylor were on a visit to the
east, he expressed a desire to make
another visit to the west, which his
advancing years made impossible of
fulfilment, however.
(From the Arnprlor (Ont.) Chronicle)
One of the sturdy pioneers of this
community passed away on Tuesday
last in the death of James C. Taylor,
who for many years was a well known
citizen of McNab township, the father
of a family of sons who enjoy a wide
reputation as keen business men. He
had been 111 only a few days; there
was no particular ailment; the sands
of time ran out.
The late James C. Taylor was born
91 years ago in Scotland. As a boy
of eleven years he emigrated to Quebec and while yet a young man he
made his way to the Clay Bank section of McNab, where by hard work
and patience he cleared an excellent
farm. On that farm he continued to
reside until 23 years ago. when he
moved to the Stewarton section of
Arnprlor to make his home witli his
son, Mr. John Taylor. When he came
to this community Arnprlor was nothing more than a few scattered houses
and McNab township was for the most
part primeval forest. He waa one of
the few remaining i«rsons who was in
Arnprlor on the occasion of the visit
by the then Prince of Wales, afterward King Edward; he was present
when the prince was rowed up the river by the lumbermen and he saw the
royal visitor plant the sapling that Is
today an oak tree of great dimensions.
Deceased was married to Miss
Alexlna McKay, of Lanark township, who died about three and a half
years ago. Surviving ure a family of
(even sons and two daughters—Thomas, Mrs. George Shaw and Mrs. Robt.
Watson, ull of McNab; Alex. In Alberta; Simon, James, Robert and Htrgtl
in Cninbrook and John lu Swinart'.n.
Thero Ih nlso one brother, Simon. In
Bolssevan, Mun. The late Mr. Taylor
Is survived by 32 grandchildren.
Tho funeral on Wednesday afternoon to the Arnprlor cemetery was
largely attended; Rev. H. W. Cliff of
St. Andrew's church, conducted thc
services und the pall-bcarers were
Messrs. Georgo Cardiff and George
Shaw, brothers-in-law, and four nephews—George, Daniel, Thomas and
John Kay.
The Cranbrook Farmers' Institute
held their annual meeting on Saturday lust, tho 19th Inst., and evidence
wus shown of a determination to put
some good live action Into the organisation during tlie combfg season.
The announcement of a rebate in
the price of stumping powder alone.
as n memlier said, justified all the
exertions the Institute had made Blnco
Its organisation, a number of the old
stand-bys of the Institute's earliest
years came out to tliis meettnag and
their return gave u degree of encaur-
sgement to the directors which thoy
have lacked for ttie past two years.
itev. Fr. Lambdt was voted to the
chair and among matters dealt with
especially wero the  following:
The secretary was instructed to
write tho Soils and Crop instructor.
Victoria, that if he could find a supply a good clean seed that a number
of the members would apply for entry
for the raising of certificate and seed
potatoes, If other districts have found
that their crop sold for about a dollar
per hundred more under this system
tho local growers felt that they also
could make good use of the extra returns. Tho question of scrub bulls,
italllons and dairy bulls at large
seemed to be Uie burning question,
and in the present temper of stock
owners something is gton$ to be done
this year to put this nuisance out of
business; tlie Institute however left
action to the Stock Association at
their meeting on March 2nd and agreed
to support any efforts the stockmen
undertake, and at the same time
pressing as bard as possible for the
assistance of a range rider Ior East
Kootenay with good executive powers
behind him.
The secretary explained to enquirers
that the small owners of from a couple to ten head of cows were unable
to place a first-class bull on the range
because of the* tost, that if they form
into a club the Dominion authorities
would loan them a pure-bred bull. It
3 likely they will follow this up at
the next meeting when full particulars
will be given.
A motion was unanimously passed
raising tbe yearly fee of membership
to |2-00, and one member stated they
wanted the secretary to oo more work
and that he should be paid a llttlo
more, and also to provide for a small
expense fund.
The election of directors resulted In
the following board for tbe year:
Rev. Fr. Lambot. Messrs. P. Woods,
Thos. Cameron of Mayook, B. Johnson
of Wardner, Jas. Foster, Fred Clarke
and C, S. Fleming. Wyrlfffe, A. B.
Smith and J. P. Ljungquist. Cranbrook, and H. Barr. Wasa. From the
foregoing Mr. 0. B. Fleming was elected president, and A. B. Smith, secretary, with Messrs. Bardgett and
Woods to act with them as enu rgeney
Vjoking forward to a district re-
ipsentatlve being located here the
board hope to inaugurate meetings at
outlying points this season and to
make these Instruction classes under
the district representative on crops
and other problems in the Held and on
the range.
Plans of a kiosk such as has been
erected at Revelstoke for a display of
district products, have been submitted by the C. P. R. to the board of
trado, and were in evidence at the annual meeting on Tuesday. Tho C. P.
R. makes the suggestion that tlie
plans be examined with a view to ascertaining if a building of similar type
would bo suitable for the plot near
the depot, upon which tho erection of
a kiosk has long been wished for to
contain a comprehensive display of
the mineral and other products ot tho
district, and also poBBlbly to bouse

Tlie "father and sou" move
ment which has come Into
prominence during tho past
two or three years is deserving
ot every parent's serious attention. In keeping with many
other centres throughout the
province and Dominion Cranbrook fathers and sons will gather together this week under
tlie auspices of the Y. M. C. A.
Leaders of boys' work- have realized that nothing wortii while
can be accomplished unless fathers and sous co-operate and
understand each Otlier. The
very movement indicates that
there is a necessity for the getting together of fathers and
sons. Changes in economic and
social life introduced with the
industrial revolution have giv
en rise to a decided tendency
for fathers and sons to grow
upart. In the past boys have
followed in the footsteps of
tlieir fathers in trades, professions and businesses, and in
many cases were trained by
their own fathers, succeeding
them in due course. Such cases
are rather the exception today
than the rule. No longer arc
their interests common, with
the result that misunderstandings develop almost unconsciously. Often the parent seeks
to roll off upon others tho burdens whicli he himself ought to
carry. The present movement
seeks to enlist the genuine sympathy and help of fathers in tlie
training and development ol
the boys. Only where there is
real sympathy between father
and son will a healthy relationship exist. Comradeship is possibly the greatest need in this
connection. The success ot
such a movement will prove to
be a big factor in solving thc
so-called "boy problem."
jection is that education and
hospital enterprises will become dependent upon a traffic
which to say the least is considered questionable in some
respects. The question might
well be asked if it is wise to
make advances in education
and hospital service if such
steps are to be dependent upon
any one line of business, and
that so precarious as the liquor
traffic. Thousands of individuals in this province of every
shade of political belief will
question the necessity of such
a move. Shall our children and
suck be dependent upon the profits of such a scheme? It
thought by many that with the
progress of education tliis traffic will ultimately cease. Many
argued, and probably the argument was sound, thai prohibition nuts! come about by gradual steps and government control was only a step toward a
certain goal. All indications,
however, point to an ultimate
termination of the industry.
Even many ardent moderationists are prepared to state thai
such may be the case in a few
years, for the coming generation will be freer from alcoholic
desire; but in the meantime
provision must be made for
those who find such beverages
necessary and needful. Sooner
or later the people must face
the question of taxation with a
better heart than at present. It
would appear to be a huge mistake for 13.C. at this time to
begin to finance such undertakings as schools and hospitals
upon such a poor and possibly
immoral basis.
Money—ready money is an essential in every
line of business—mercantile or farming. Wise
farmers build up Savings Accounts, which
enable them to purchase for cash.

Problems of taxation are
probably the most pressing at
the present time. Every municipality is struggling more or
less to meet the many demands
which call for an expenditure
of public money. Tlie provinces are also overwhelmed with
demands, especially along the
line of education and hospital
service. Often the public in
making such demand* fail to
realize the tremendous sums
necessary for the carrying out
of thoso demands. Too often
there is an unwillingness to
consider the logical outcome of
such demands viz: increased
taxation In some form or other.
The public however is never
anxious to shoulder such burdens and the necessity is thrust
upon governments, local, prov
incial and federal, to find the
necessary funds so that the
public may be in the happy po
sition of feeling that such funds
are not after all out of tlieir
Generally the people prefer
to pay taxes Indirectly rather
than directly, they enjoy believing that the other fellow is doing the paying. The present
proposals regarding the liquor
legislation of this province are
in keeping with this situation
It is proposed that much of the
expenditure for schools and
hospitals be found out of the
profits of government control
of the liquor traffic. It might
be well to note several points
in such a proposal. The con
sumer of liquor will contribute
to such expenditures to a greater degree than the non-drinker;
a high price will have to be
charged to secure such ample
profits, and consequently the
bootlegger may still be a con
stant competitor of the government stores; but the chief ob-
During tlie past few days a
number of annual meetings
have been held with the usual
appointment of new officers
and committees. Annual meetings are sometimes treated by
tbe rank and file as of no great
purpose and constituting more
or less a necessary evil. But little would ever be accomplished
without such formal organization meetings, and probably a
great deal more would be accomplished if a greater interest
were taken in them. It is not a
small matter to see that the
best fitted individuals are
appointed, and the best pro
grams of work laid out. Too
often at the end of the season
criticism is levelled at the officers of an organization, criticism which is generally about
leven months overdue. On the
surface it appears that there is
a multiplicity of societies in a
community of this size but elos-
exaniination shows it is quite
evident each has its own particular sphere in which to work
and that much would remain
undone without specific organ-
zations for the carrying out of
various aims and plans. The
best support should be given by
the citizens of the community
generally, and especially by
the members, to all the organizations which are working for
tlie general good of the com
munity. Too often the burden
is carried alone by the office
holders, in one case particu
laiiy, a secretary reports indifference and apathy as being the
chief causes of small results ac
complished, and it is quite evident that little would have been
at all in this case had it not
been for the activity of one or
two office bearers. The time
has surely come in this district,
and every otlier district, for organizations to justify Ihelr existence by launching out into vigorous activity during the coming season toward well defined
goals. A definite program is
absolutely necessary for success, but no mere program can
produce success in itself; it
must be put into operation and
be carried forward by individuals who believe that the program is necessary and wortii

I will say that I sent out regular notices for eleven meetings in 1919 and

but the secretary lost his half day for
eleven, seven ot them uselessly, and
a man does not lose half a day in

been October and November meetings
but for the fact ot complications at

Why The East Wants Daylight Saving
Within a tew weeks, the question    '*** "
t-i   daylight   saving   will   probably mWl
om-e   more   become  the  Buoject   of
more or less heated debate in which Fn

and last but not least, railtoads wiih Af>m

daylight saving during the summet r_ _-r-w*^

middle weal protest that the morning am\   j. 1- \- \'%m
dews and the natural milking time for
cows cannot be regulated by clock,
while in the North-West where the
Bummer sun shines eighteen or twenty hours a day the mother of seven
children wishes to goodness that the
darkness and the hour for bed time
came twice as soon and lasted twice
os long—what she wanti W a dark
Bess-saving law.
The demand for daylight saving,
however, is most insistent in Fast
ern Canada and the Eastern States
and for every insistent demand thett
is usually a real reason.   The reasor
apparently    is   that   the   so-callei
standard time in force in the are;
in question varies considerably from
thc mean sun time upon which tlu
actual length and intensity of day
light is based.   Standard time is i.
convenient artifice established in ord
er to secure uniform time for neigh
boring communities or places.   The
sun is travelling from East to Wesl
and the noon hour originally travel
led with it, but it was found advisable to fix definite areas in which
the   noon   hour   and   other   hours
should remain the same for the con
venience of the operation of railroads and telegraphs and the transaction of business wherein contracts
involved definite time limits.
Such standard time was adopted
for the United States in 1883 on the
initiative of the American Railway
Association, and as the time of the
civilized world is by general consent
based  on  Greenwich,  England,  the
meridians selected for the division
of the various standards were fixed
at the 60th, 75th, 90th, 105fh and
120th  degrees  west  of  Greenwich.
Atlantic standard time theoretically
extended from the 00th to the 75th
meridian nnd Eastern standard time
from the 75th to tho 90th meridian;
Central standard time from the 90th
to   105th;   Mountain  standard   time
from the 105th to 120th, west of
which wns 1'ncific standard time.)
These times were adopted hy law
in a number ot the individual States,
but municipalities have not all ful
lowed suit as public sentiment and
habits proved more potent factors In
fixing the time standards for localities than have State Statutes.
Prince Edward Island and Nova
Scotia, on the Eastern boundnry of
Atlantic time sone, have used that
time for thirty years or more, but
it was not until 1903 that New
Brunswick, which wbb in closer contact with the New England States,
finally by Act of its legislature,
adopted Atlantic standard time officially for that Province.
The situation was complicated,
particularly in the Eastern States
and Eastern Canada, by the railways themselves, where in actual
practice it was found necessary to
fix the time-breaking tones at terminals or division points. As branch
lines have been constructed, the carriers have extended on these the
standard 'time observed at the June-
tion point or upon the main line.
There are instances where the
branch lines radiate out of one tone
into another, thus Introducing a time
at variance with the theoretical time
of that zone. The contention of the
railways is that time should be
changed only at the points at the
termini of train dispatching district!
when train crews nre relieved. They

Shaded area shows

Meridians show

divisions of

operating time to another during a
trick of duty, and impracticable to
have train dispatchers operate trains
under two standards of time,
Conflict between the States which
have adopted Eastern standard time
based strictly upon the 75th to 90th
meridians and the railways which
have found this to be not sufficiently
elastic, has naturally resulted, as for
instance in the State of Vermont,
when a Bill has been introduced into
the House of Representatives in
which one-section reads:—
"A common  carrier  engaged
In commerce within this state or
between this state and any other
state   or   territory   shall   not
change Its time schedules for
the movement of trains within
the state In order to accommodate Itself to conditions outside
the state arising by reason of
the adoption of any other stand-    I
ard of time by any other state,"
Then again the demand for day<
light saving has complicated matters.    The United States Congress
last year passed an Act which defeated the general adoption of the
proposed daylight   saving,  whereas
"     "' '     of Ni      "   '
sachuaetts adopted daylight saving,
and the new England railroads, in
order to reconcile the conflict be
tween the Federal Act and the State
Acts of Massachusetts and New
York, ran their trains on standard
time, but one hour earlier than they
otherwise would. The Canadian
railways fell Into step with the
American railways, and In doing to
were supported by the municipalities of many of th* larger cities
which had adopted daylight saving.
Now it Is noticeable thtt tht de-
mand for adoption of daylight sav-
Ing Umt by Um Urgtt Uwm «•*
cities is almost exclusively confined
to Eastern Canada, New Knglsnd
States nnd the City of New York.
On examination, this appears to be
due to thu fact that Eastern Standard time which theoretically extends
only between the 75th and 90 meridians hus been carried In actual
practice a very considerable distance
east of thc 7-Uh degree. According
to this meridian places all of the
Province of t-tiiebpc. and nll of New
Kngland, New York Ciiy and part
of New York State in the Atlantic
should belong tn the Atlantic Time
Zone, and if this time were reinstated there would be little or nt
call for daylight saving now. Tht
railways have carried Eastern time
too far cast, and the States and
Provinces and Municipalities which
have adopted the same time for tht
sake of uniformity are realising that
this does not correspond with natural time. On the railways, Eastern
standard lime is carried from Gaspt
in Eastern Quebec to Fort William
in Ontario, a distance of 25 tjWffttf
or 1200 miles instead of the 711.70
miles of 15 degrees.
On eastern standard time as at
present maintained in New England
and Quebec, the tun rises from Hay
to September two to three hours before the average person la about ia
the morning, and sets at an equally
unserviceable hour. Hence the nat*
ural demand for daylight saving
legislation ln thett parts. If New

Advertising in the country weekly li
the most valuable advertising In thu
world. Expert advertisers say lt Is
uot only the most valuable, but the
must scientific advertising In the
world. Advertising in the muguzlnes
has to be genera), for tho reason that
the average magazine that you receivo
today was set ln type several weeks
ago, and tlie advertising copy wus
probably prepared several weeks before that. Tills means that advertisers in the magazines have to anticipate conditions several weeks In advance of the time copy Is prepared.
This ls not so witli- advertising in
the country weekly, for the country
weekly has the advantage over the
magazine ln that the weekly circulates
ln a comparatively small territory and
the name of the merchant or the business man who Is selling the goods
can be placed ln the advertisement.
Thla Ib ImpOBBible In magazine advertising, which covers sometimes the

The weekly newspnper also Is considered the best advertising medium

An Important recent development
In forestry Is tht Inauguration ot a
Department of Forestry In the Faculty ot Science, Unlvenity of British
Columbia, trader Prof. H. R- Christie.
A five-year course will be given, during the flrBt two yeara ot which the
Instruction will consist ot general
art* and science subjects, aa In the
courses In chemical, mechanical, mining and civil engineering. During tht
last three years, the student will
specialize In forestry, thla being definitely recognized aa a branch of the
engineering profusion. Prof. Christie
waa for a number of years in the
British Columbia Forest Branch, also
with the Canadian Engineers ln
France. He Is a graduate of the Faculty of Forestry, University of Toronto. The establishment of the new
Bchool of Forestry at Vancouver
should mean much In the future development of forestry work In the
western provinces, particularly farlt-

Liberals Dissatisfied With Fail-
are of Govt, to Give Preferment In the Legislature
Whatever may be the personal attitude ot Mrs. Ralph Smith relative
to a cabinet position, her supporters
in Vancouver are not apparently content to allow the government to forget her claims to preferment. The
city Liberal Association of Vancouver
has passed a strongly worded resolution demanding that that city's popular woman member be given a seat
In the cabinet. The resolution set
forth that Mrs. Smith was returned
to parliament by a vote of 18,082 electors, that she led the poll by 7,354
votes, and that her majority voto exceeded by thousands the combined majorities of all the elected Lbleral
members. It also points out that she
Is the only woman representative in
the House, and In view of her progressive social and political activity,
and the Important part that women
are taking In public bodies through
out the province, together with the
need for their having a representative
who Is especially fitted to bring their
viewa before tbe government, the association resolved "That we urge
upon tht Honorable Premier of this
province that he call Mrs. Nary Ellen
Smith to a seat In the executive council at an early date."
Mrs. Smith's recent refusal to accept the office of Speaker is approved
by her friends, who assert that she
was definitely promised cabinet rank
provided she would enter the recent
election contest under the straight
Llbearl banner rather than continue
the Attitude of Independence which
she occupied In the last Legislature.
Rumor has had It that Mrs. Smith
might possibly be accorded the offico
of President ot the Council, one that
would make her a participant In

Thu agitation against the display of
moving pictures which depict crlmo
and familibtize children with scents
of violence appears to have broken out
in tliu Antipodes as well aB In tho
United States and Cannda. Tho government of New Zealand has Issued a
proclamation ordering that after Muy
lst no moving picture shall he shown
iu tbo Dominion which depicts thieving, robbery, murder or suicide.
Tho Importers of films aro said to
have heen thrown into consternation
by the order. Why should they lie?
All aro placed on un equal footing.
Thero may bo some little difficulty for
a time ln finding substitutes for the
crimo-provoklng films thut have be*
como so common of Into, but the thing
can be and will be'done.
Producers must have heard the rumbling of tho storm that Is about to
break. There have been plenty of protests, not from professional reformers
alone, but from patrons of the picture
shows themselves. Tho bedroom
sceneB and tho scarcely concealed portrayals of the llfo of the underworld
will have to go as well as the highwayman and the bad actor who is always flourishing a couple of revolvers
ln the face of panic-stricken bank
clerks. A clean-up of the movies was
overdue. Little New Zealand seems to
have had courage enough to begin the
operation. Her erample will bo followed widely—Toronto Globe.
n connection with the foregoing, It
Is of interest to note that tho govern
ment of New Zealand has recently
mado a proclamation to tho effect!
that no moving picture film depleting
thieving, robbery, murder or suicide i
shall he permitted to bo shown In the
country nflcr May lst next. Probably
most significant of all is the fact that
Importers of films Into that country
havo been thrown Into consternation
by tbo order. Why Aro there no

Wiinniim Erection of Snhstun-
lial Office Building in Pernie
In The Near Future
Great interest Is being taken by
New York transportation nnd real
estate men in the decision taken by
the Canadian Pacific Railway to
concentrate its various offices into
one building close to the Grand Central Station.
The Canadian Pacific deal, which
has required an entire year to clou
on account of its elaborate ramtflca
tions, Involves a lease from th>
Madison Avenue Offices, Inc., tin
holding corporation for the Fifth
Church of Christ Scientist, of a
large store, basement and almost thc
entire second floor of the 44th Street
portion of this twenty-one story
building; and also involves nn investment of considerable proportions
by the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company In the building itself, in
consideration of which the name of
the building will be changed from
"Madison Avepue Offices," or, as it
haa sometimes been referred to, th<-
"Christian Science Building," and
will be re-named the "Canadian
Pacific Building."
The area of the plot on which the
building stands covers over 31,000
square feet, and is situated dircctlv
opposite the Hotel Biltmore on the
east,  Brooks  Brothers' building  to
for the great uptown trend of business.
The negotiations just closed provide, in addition to the investment
mentioned above, a lease for 21
years at nn aggregate rental of
something approaching $8,000,000.
It was said by F. H. Perry, General
Agent, Passenger Department, in
New York, for the Canadian Pacific,
that it will give up its railway offices
at Hroadway and 30th Street and its
branch at Broadway and 33rd Street,
and will combine its railway, steamship, nnd colonization departments
in its new home on Madison Avenue.
Tho plans of the Canadian Pacific
Company*nre nsrticidnrly significant in that tbey will provide tbe
largest consolidated ticket offices
in New York, for, in addition to their
own occupancy, it is said by the
agents of thc new Canadian Pacific
Building, that negotiations are pending with several of the largest transcontinental railroads for representation in the same store. ^This arrangement ts similar to the Railroad Administration during the war.
The store has a frontage of 81 ft.

lt has been variously rumored
around Fernle, says the Free Press of
that city, that the British Columbia
and Alberta Power Company, Limited,
has gone Into liquidation. The only
possible excuse for such rumor Is an
advertisement which has been running
In the Fernle Free Press and Cranbrook Courier to the effect that the
Bull Hlver U'ectrlc Light and Power
Company, Limited, was going out of
business and that the affairs of the
company wero lu liquidation. This
defunct power company should not bo
confused with the British Columbia
and Alberta Power Company, Limited,
which has already spent In the neighborhood of $160,000 towards the actual
development of power sites on Bull
River ami Fik River. This new company lias ample funds and Is backed
by years of experience in the operation
of hydro-electric, railways, gas, and
water works utilities, and It can be
definitely stated that they are here to
stay, aud tho ultimate completion of
all their plans should give a tremendous impetus to business generally In
Kast Kootenay'.
Tho Free Press, on hearing of this
rumor, went direct to an official of
tho company in order to get a positive denial of the rumor whicli has
beon current. This rumor wns easily
disposed of, and tlie fact that the
company has a largo amount of business contracted for, and delivery of
current by December of tills year has
been absolutely guaranteed, should be
evidence enough that this undertaking
Is bona fide and will be carried
through to a successful conclusion.
Mr. J. G. Donald, manager of the
B.C. and Alberta Power Co., at Fernie, recently made a proposition to
tho city council of that place relative
to the erection of au office building
there. Mr. Donald's proposition was
that tho city lease to the company for
a long term, say ninety-nine years, a
vacant lot near the depot for a nominal rental, and upon such a basis as
could be agreed upon. The company
then, if the contemplated proposition
materializes, would undertake the construction of a, permanent office building. While this, Mr. Donald empha-
slded, was all entirely informal, he
had gone to the extent of authorizing
the company engineering department
to prepare plans of u suitable building, which he had hoped he would be
able to present to the council. Some
idea, however, may be gleaned as to
what tho power company have In
mind us to the nature of the building
to bo erected from the fact that the
cost of it would be at least $25,000 to
$30,000. It would bo a two-storey
sandstone or cement and brick structure of very imposing appearance. It,
would further be made more attractive |
by vertical standard one-light or cluster lights method of street lighting
placed along the curb of the cement
sidewalk surrounding the building.
Tho building would be.additlonally illuminated by a row of projecting
lights along the second storey of similar design to thoso ou the street;
whllo from the roof a large electric
display sign would bear the legend
"Fernle, the Centre of Hydro-Fleetrlc
Mr. Donald took occasion to announce to the council that in view of
the satisfactory conditions In regard
to closing contracts and the prospects for greater demand upon the
company for electrfc power, recently
the capitalization of the B.C. and Alberta Power Co. had been doubled*
and they were now going ahead wltb
their own projects simultaneously, viz,
Bull River and Elko. While In all
contracts executed to date, Dec. 31,
1921 ls specified as being tho date upon which tho company guarantees to
deliver power It is expected hydro-el
ectrlc power will be iu Fernie a couple of months earlier or'some tlmo in

A demand upon the government to
denl fulrly with the returned men on
the- government soldier settlement
areas with special reference to the
Creston area, over whicli he was for
somo time superintendent, was made
by Colonel Fred Lister, D.S.O., Conservative member for the Kaslo riding, when making his maiden speech
debatoln the Legislature last week.
Colonel Lister, speaking from his
knowledge of condiltonB at tbo Creston area, declared that tho meu there
had grounds for tholr grievances, that
promises made by niombors of tho
Laud Settlement Board hud not been
curled out. Oo understood that assurances had been given to the men
that their grievances would be
remedied und ho hoped (that thut
would prove to bo tbe case. He
eulogized the meu at that area,
sorting ihal they aro tho reul bull-dog
breed, and If the government would
do Its duty towards them it would
never regret it.
Emphasizing the great importance
of tho agricultural Industry and asserting that British Coulmbia, especially the southern portion, ls essentially an agricultural province, he approved of the governments intention,
as set forth, to assist the farmer by
providing cheap stumping powder, a
step which should bave been taken
long ago. But there were handicaps
on the farmer which the government
should seek to remove. High freight
and express rates; the present free
importation of certain products Into
tho province from the States, such
as potatoes, thereby reducing the
furmer's chance of making a living,
and the lack of adequate roud facilities in many sections wero some of
these handicaps, Better would It be
if the government, instead of proceeding with the Pacific Highway, as
intimated, would see to it tbat roadways In agricultural areas were constructed to allow the farmers to get
tlieir produce to the trains. It would
be time enough to attend to tourist
roadways after the needs of the province were met.
The importance of irrigation to his
own district, where large areas await
but water to make them produce,
was urged by the member from Kaslo,
who considered such works more important than certain reclamation
works undertaken by the govern
ment. though by reclamation some
thousands of acres in the Kootenay
Flats could be made productive.
There had been a good deal said
about the soldier settlement areas
prior to the election. Colonel Lister
stated as he complimented the government upon Inaugurating tiie plan.
The Creston area would, with fair
treatment meted out to the men,
prove a successful venture. What
grievances the men had had been
kept to themselves practically on the
command of the Land Settlement
Board, otherwise their interests would
have been prejudiced. For a long
time the men -there received little
consideration. The Minister of Agriculture had visited the area and had
promised the grievances would be
remedied. Colonel Lister believed the
Minister had been sincere in that
promise, but it appeared he had come
back to Victoria to find tbat he could

The preservation of the green timber along tho main highways was
matter, he aald, which had his
Iiearty support. Still, it would be
necessary for the government to provide $300,000 for the purchase and
preservation of this asset, and It wns
questionable where the security lay.
Also, explained Mr. Oliver, this timber lay in the Dominion railway belt
and he felt that perhaps the best
course would bo for those Interested
to approach the Federal government
and owners of the timber. When, he
explained, the provincial government
might be backing a proposition which
would be of very doubtful value.

Hit secretary ot this institute uud he
can Initiate uud curry through u number of matters that cun nut be successfully taken Up without just such assistance as he will he able tu give.
Looking forward to the lines of agriculture most promising tn the near
future I urge stronger unity of action
jn dairy work, more men supporting
the creamery and more profitable
cows to each man. Only by getting
greatly Increased support can tlie
creamery be In a position to pay the
best prices for Its raw material. There
ure u great many farmers in the district who are too selfish to assist in
a community activity. Their own llttlo Immediate half cent of gain made
at the expense of the slavery of their
women folks is bigger in their eyes
than the assurance of a dollar gain
for both themselves and their neighbors In the near future. No co-operative enterprise was ever a success
that did not call for a sacrifice of the
Immediate profits of some of its supporters for tho good of the whole, and
till wo come to that frame of mind
here, those who bave been willing to
back a co-operative society can hardly
feel sacf In going ahead.
Another line of money-making for
the next few years Is bound to be in
heavy horses. The big fellows are
worth money now nnd are going to
be doubly as valuable in two or thre*
years. Everything points to tho ad
vlsubillty of breeding your big mares

It Is alfalfa. Alfalfa aud bran are the
only feeds that develop the big horse.
Half a gallon or less of bran and oats
per duy will nnke a real horse of a
heavy-bred foal if gipen him his first
winter, but the same amount will
hnrdly have any effect at any later
time fn bis life. The supply of drafters is very short. The tractor is being
dropped both in city and country for
many line-*- of work and by many men
who are opening their purses to get
the big horses and can't find them-
We need bigger and coarser stallions
than what we now have ln the district.
I feel that during tliis year stockmen
should make a united effort to force
the observance of the range law ae
alnst the out-of-season bull and stal
lion, also the underbred animal ai
any season. To that end I wish to
point out that Alberta law allow
fee charged against each such animal
for the finder who takes him in. I
believe this would be a help here and
that wo should ask for ?.uch a provision.
I should like to see an effort made
to procure a reliable census of farm
and range stock this year. I have
often been asked for such and am unable to give it. could we not accomplish this this season by the co-operation of our members?
This year we shall have powder at
|5 at factory for clearing land, that
means about $6-70 lail down here in
less than car lots under Institute certificate as compared with $9.40 if we
had not procured this concession from
tho government and I hope those proposing to take advantage will f:ie
their orders early so that I can send
them in at once when this comes into
We handled about sixty-five acre3
last season and I should expect a very
much greater amount the coming season.
The Institute assisted in placing
two dairy bulls witli members in 1920,
this making five we have on our list
partially paid for.
The stumper has been completely
paid for now and should be more
largely used this season by reason of
reduced labor costs and i>owder costs.
Vou will havo seen In the press tht
various resolutions passed at the district conference. It is not too late
to send In any other pressing matter
and I think (hat u resolution from this
body should be sent to our member
at Victoria, Dr. King, asking him to
personally add his Influence and assistance lu these mutters.
Tlie finances of the district which
were considerubly behind a year ago

not be allowed to run down ugaln
through tradlny work except through
a proper cash ln advance organization for such a purpose, and this will
be made possible only as soon as those
desirous of seeing such a body formed
are ready to sign a bard and fast
ugreement to stand behind their own
elected officers and stay with tholr
own business regardless of tbe efforts to draw them away by greater
Immediate profits offered with the
sole purpose of breaking up tho organization. Till the farmers are willing to stand for a penalty for quitting
their own manager and his work, any
effort to create a farmers' business
organization is useless nud tho backers will only be placing themselves In
a pohltinu where trouble and loss will
ensue. I wish to thank those members
who have stood by the Institute In tho
past hard years and believe a hatter
