MAYOR FINK REPLIES TO ATTACKS
A feature ol the recent campaign
was the distribution ol dodgers, at
the eleventh hour, containing all
manner of attacks upon the late
council In the following letter,
addressed to this paper, it will Ik'
seen that Mayor Kink lakes the earliest opportunity ol replying thereto;
K.Iilot Herald
Dear Sir: Will you klndl) allow me
space in your valuable colutnns to
correct some vcr) misleading statements, published In the form ol hand
lulls, prloi to the recent civic elections,
11 is not my desire to enter into
any newspaper discussion, but 1 feel
that the statements referred i" were
totally uncalled for, and neither the
council nor mysell were entitled to
such unwarranted attacks.
One of the first statements my attention  was drawn tu was headed:
"Voters, attention! If elected we
intend to divide the city into wards
and moneys wilt bo equally divided
on different wards, and not on one or
two streets as heretofore."
Two street improvement bylaws
have been placed before, and approved by the property owners, and in
each case the names ol tbe Streets,
and the amount tu tie spent on each
street, whirl) was io be improved,
were stated and made part of the
bylaw See your issues ol May 3,
1006, and April 88, l|09. I do not
know of a ease where the money
was not used as slated hi the bylaw.
The next statement was that headed
'The Road Tax Bylaw."
1 wish to stale that this bylaw was'
not passed to take the place of the
"Famous" dog tax bylaw. The
provincial law provides that any person paying into the city an annual
tax of $2.0(1 is entitled to vote. It
also provides thai the road tax be
$2 ou. Both laws are in force in
every city in B. C. I will admit
that I believe the law lo he had insofar us allowing a vote Is concerned, hut I believe every man who
lives and earns his living hi the city
should pay n road lax, us lie enjoys
the same privileges as Ihe property
owner who pays a heavy lax. I will
also admit that Hip road lax and dog
tax bylaws were not enforced and
those who secured votes by paying
the tax, did so of their own accord.
The third circular brought tu my
attention  was that  headed:
"Purchase  of  Water System.'"
lu which it us stated the council
tl id not give Ihe voters any information. The person who wrote this
statement evidently does not read
the Cranbrook papers, as every item
of information the council were able
to obtain was published. See your
issue of July 22, 1800. The law of
the land governs public utilities, such
as water systems. The council
adopted the only safe course, that of
securing the services of the very best
available engineer, Mr. John Gait, id
Toronto, one of the best in Canada,
to estimate the value of the plant
Had the council and company been
unable lo agree on a price based on
the engineer's figures, we would have
bad to resort to arbitration or the
courts. This Ihe council wished to
avoid, as the expense would have
been very heavy.
The last statement was that addressed to the mayor and council of
Cranbeook for the year 1M9, in
which complaint Is made on account
of the annual financial statement not
being published before tlie election. I
will admit, most heartily, that this
should have been done, hut was not
on account of being unable to procure
an auditor to verify the accounts.
Mr. E. Home did the auditing lot
1008, and we expected him to do il
last year, which he was unable to do
As soon as he notified us of his inability to do the work we endeavored
to secure other local men and at tin
last minute secured Mr. Cholditch
The council had nothing to conceal or
to tie ashamed of. Anyone doubting
Mr. Cholditch's honesty or ability
will do well to write to any business
man of Nelson. I do not think any
member of the council has by word
or action intimated that the people
of Cranbrook had not. sulhcicnt intelligence to understand a linaiicial
statement. Personally, 1 would infer thut the person who wrote those
lines is the one who thinks every
other person very dense.

ity will be materially aided by your
efforts in the enactment of progressive legislation
"During the past year the province

from His Excellency Karl Grey, Governor General of Canada, and I take
this occasion to advert lo the very
favorable impression which he created through his urbane and cordial
demeanor towards all and his marked interest in the industrial affairs
ami social life of the community.

great Interest which he has always
taken in this part of the Dominion
"Before proceeding to outline the
various matters of business with
which you will tie asked to deal, I

sterling qualities of my esteemed pre
decessor, the lion. James Duusmuii,

"It is eminently fitting to refer toj
the celebration at New Westminster,
during Die month of October last, of |
the fiftieth anniversary of the landing
in British Columbia of the Royal Engineers, a body of men whose remarkable pioneer work in opening up tl,
province is most worthy ol commemoration.
"It is gratifying thai I am enabled
to inform you that the financial coi

satisfying in its history, showing
such u substantial surplus as to permit of a considerable reduction in
taxation, while nol Interfering wit!
the expenditures necessary to the efficient administratis of provincial
affairs.
"It is also a pleasure to row ih.it

ment of agriculture, undertaken a

The lumbermen's convention, which
took place in this city last week,
terminated most successfully and en-
joyably in the grand ball at the Auditorium on Friday night, at which
upwards of four hundred people were
present. It is not saying too much
to say that the lumbermen provided
one of the most enjoyable balls ever
held in this city. The Auditorium
was handsomely decorated, the work
of a committee of ladies, assisted by
she staff of the Cranbrook Electric
Light company. Excellent music
was provided by Nolan's Spokane orchestra, which kept the dancers going
merrily until the early hours of Saturday morning. The attendance
was very large, there being present,
in addition to residents of Cranbrook, a large number of visitors
from Nelson. Moyie. Creston, Elko,
Wardner, Fernle and other nearby
points. In every respect the utmost
pains were taken to provide for the
Comfort and entertainment of all
visitors, the arrangements generally
reflecting great credit upon those in
charge. Supper was served at the
Cranbrook hotel and, needless to say,
it was excellent in every respect
Sleighs conveyed the guests to and
from the Auditorium The lumbermen's hall will long remain a pleasant memory to those who had the
privilege to be among the invited
guests.
The annual meeting ol the Mountain Lumbermen's association opened
on Friday, January 11th. at 10. a.m.
in the Cranbrook hotel committee
rooms The morning session was
devoted to the secretary's report ol
the work, covering the year 1909,
and the presentation ol comparative
statements of production and consumption for the past four years

II- alternoon session was MVOtcd
tu i consideration ol the present
system Ol grading the mountain product No changes were made fnr
tie time being, but a committee, re
presenting the whole interior, was ap
pointed, which will meet at an early
date to go into the question thoroughly and after due deliberation
prepare a set of standard rules for
grading lumber.
The secretary reported fully regarding the present status of provincial
timber legislation which, in view of
r,e premier's announcement on the
public platform, during tbe recent
election campaign, that be would Introduce legislation at the coming session whereby special timber licenses
would be made renewable In perpet-
iity, places the lumbermen in a position of greater security as to their
timber supply.
Strong resolutions were adopted
regarding tbe necessity for larifl protection against the dumping of American lumber Into Canada, arid against
the proposed insurance hill, which
th*' Canadian fir'- insurance combine
trying to have passed, whereby
premiums on foreign insurance will
be taxed 16 per cent.
After the meeting Secretary Anstie
aid "The convention was successful
from every standpoint, and it had
been his pleasant duty to be able to
report to the members that their aggregate business for tbe year just
'•mled was the largest in th'' history
ol the Mountain lumber industry, and
that the outlook for 1910 promised
much better things in store."
President Otto Lachmund voiced
the views of all the visiting lumbermen, when, in rnurse of conversation
with a Herald representative, he remarked that tlie entertainment of the
visitors had surpassed all expectations The hall had proved quite ;i
revelation to him. He had never
dreamed thai Cranbrook could entertain in such a style He wished to
express his personal gratification, as
well as that of all the visiting lumbermen, at the manifest teal o\ every
one to make their visit to Cranbrook
pleasant in ewry par:.cl.tr The
president particularly emphasized Ms
appreciation of the untiring efforts of

REFORM MOVEMENTS.
Tho great national awakening ol
Asiatic peoples under the impact ol
the Christian lorcea is resulting in
not only political upheaval, bloodless
revolution and reform, hut in vastly
increased opportunity lor aggregate
philanthropic effort on the part ol
tho missionary. Reports ot great
spiritual, moral and intellectual revival during the past year have come
from all the great countries of Asia.
With the new king Alhert, of Belgium, what Sir I'ouau Doyle calls
"the greatest crime in the history ol
the world," the Congo slave outrage,
is apparently soon to come to an
end.
Many learned Pundits are openly
revolting against that prominent exponent ot theosophy, Mrs. Ucsant,
and her philosophy as an entirely
inadequate solution of the sad problems ol the people ot India.
There are now 400 mission hospitals and over 500 orphanages and
asylums in foreign lands under missionary direction. Three million
patients a year are treated by the
medical missionaries. There arc
nearly 30,000 Protestant colleges and
schools of learning and 400 Christian
periodicals are published on mission
fields. The Bible bas been translated into about 500 languages ami dialects.
One ol a number ot recent large
gifts is significant ol a growing tendency among the rich. The will ol
ihe late John S. Kennedy, Esq.,
tianker, New York, gives to philanthropic institutions the halt ot his
sixty million dollar fortune. Colleges, missions, charities, Bible society work, etc., are among the chief
objects remembered.
The Pomlnion Lord's Day Alliance
is entering upon a campaign in the
west lo secure a better observance
ol thi' rest-day laws. In the last
three years over 100,000 Canadian
workers have been given their lawful and regular one-day-in-scven
rest.
Dr. S. D. Chown, ol Toronto, Ont.,
a recent Winnipeg address, congratulated Manitoba on its advanced
position concerning juvenile criminal
law, also lor its torward movements
against the gambling evil and bawdy-
house segregation. He called the
white slave traffic the deepest hell
that could be dug on earth.
The Winnipeg authorities have come
out with a strong pronouncement in
lavor ol a hospital lor the treatment
of tuberculosis.

MOTHERS BLESS ZAM-BUK.
Read How it   Gives the   Little Ones
Ease,
A most Important thing tor mothers to watch is the treatment ol
rashes, dialed or chapped places,
etc. When you put an ointment on
to a child's skin it gets into the
blood through the pores just as
surely as il you put it Into the
child's stomach. Did you ever think
ol that? How important, therefore,
that the salve or balm should he
pure! Zam-Buk is absolutely pure;
contains no animal lat; no mineral
coloring matter; no acid astringents;
nn burning antiseptics—yet it is antiseptic! It is purely herbal, and thus
meets all the needs ol the skin in
that superior way in which nature always provides.
Mrs. (I. Gentleman, ot 1090 St.
.lames St., Montreal, says: ''My
two-year-old daughter had eczema lor
over six months, on lace and body.
Doctor didn't cure. We tried various
remedies in vain, but could give the
little one no ease. When Zam-Buk
was tried it was vety dlBerent. It
soothed the pain and the irritation,
and the child ceased to scratch. Perseverance with Zam-Buk brought a
complete cure."
Mrs. 0. W. Bowerbank, ol 120
Dcnison Ave., Toronto, says her
baby's lace was covered with a burning eruption. Little one was terribly paincd-scartched, and made the
places very bad.    Zam-Buk cured.
Scores ol simitar eases could he
cited. Zam-Buk should be in every
home, because it heals sores, stops
pain, and ends skin diseases. Eczema, itch, ulcere, had legs, poisoned wounds, abscesses, cold sores,
cracked hands, scalp sores, whether
in children or adults, are cured by
Zam-Buk. It is also a cure tor
piles. All druggists and stores at
50c. box, or post Iree Irom Zam-Buk

some years at Wattsburg ami the
produot of the factory has met with
such a ready sale that the company
has been unable to keep up with the

piping, has led the company to undertake the installation of a pipe
plant in connection with its .mill at
Proctor, taken over n few months
ago from tbe Proctor Lumber company. This pipe-making plant is almost ready for operation and will be
in every respect as complete ns it

EDITORIAL NOTES
The outcome ol the recent municipal elections cannot be regarded otherwise than as generally satisfactory. A tried, experienced man has
been retained as mayor and the new
blood added to the council board
promises to prove thoroughly elli-
licnl. Whilst there is good reason
for gratification at the outcome, it
cannot he Bald that the campaign
preceding tho election was entirely
satisfactory or worthy of the important issues al stake. In the
first place, we think the city electorate mc entitled to greater eon
sideration than was shewn them. A
public meeting, at which the members
of il Id   council could have given
an aecounl of their stewardship and
the new candidates for office could
have outlined their views and explained their attitude towards tho
chief issues, should have boon held
some few days before the balloting.
Had this been done it would have
obviated what was a very unpleasant
feature of the late campaign, tho
distribution of dodgers, alleging all
manner of wrong doing against the
old council. This was a nullo Inexcusable course on the part of the
committee in charge of the Finlay
ticket's campaign. If those who
prepared and circulated these dodgers had any confidence in the soundness of their charges, they should al
least have submitted them lo the
press for publication in time to permit of reply thereto by those accused Doubtless this feature of the
campaign told heavily against those
responsible for ii, for the average
western elector abominates anything
in the nature of unfairness. However, the past is past and we can
promise that so far as the Herald is
concerned strong effort will be made
to guard against any repetition ol
these tactics in the future. The new
council has made a good start and
we may anticipate with confidence
good, honest work in the interests
of tlie city during the ensuing Iwel.i
months
It is very refreshing to read the accounts in eastern newspapers of tin
splendid non-partisan reception tendered Sir Wilfrid Laurier on the occasion of his recent visit to Tor on U
as the guest of the National club
Partisanship is carried to pretty extreme lengths in Canada, hut, happily
upon occasions our best citizens can
rise above this narrowing sentiment.
That this is so was amply evidenced
at the National club banquet tendered Sir Wilfrid, ovei which a strong
Conservative, Mr W K. McNaught
presided. In the course of bis ad
dress upon Ibis occasion, Sir Wilfrid
thus referred to his aims as a servant of the Dominion:
"In the position I occupy, in which
I have been placed by the kindness of
the Canadian people, it cannot be expected that the policy I follow will
be regarded in Hie same light by all.
Hut if I can hope—if 1 can entertain
the hope to retain the esteem of
those who think with me and Un
respect of those who dilTer with me.
1 shall have realized the only ambition I have in life. (Applause.) lu

the fate of English rule in India was
trembling in destiny. Sir Henry
Lawrence died. He desired that
on his tomb there should only appear

gnater Incentive can actuate man
than to do his duty by bis country.
I desire no other mention of my name
than that I tried to do my best tor
Canada, its prosperity and its
glory "
(in the same occasion Sir Wilfrid
Laurier gavi splendid evidence ot his
breadth of character in the following
fine tribute paid to his gnat predecessor m the leadership of the Canadian parliament:
"It 1 lure been able, in the course
of in\ life, to give Justice to whom
justice were due, to meet my opponent and to shake his hand, nud to
say to friends and foes tbe good I
thought of tbnii. I owe it largely to
tbe example which was given me in
my own case by a man whose portrait is on the wall, and who at one
time was tbe treat loader of tho
Conservative party ••• I must say

tho whole, ii may be said, thai this
policy makes a good slarl along lines
that will meet with very general approval .       M can and will, of course, j
be said, (hat the government   should!
have gone further, hut in formulating
(his policy, Sir Wilfrid Laurier   had:
take cognizance of conditions and
sentiment      throughout     the   broad
ominion, and   bo has brought down.
policy thai   will he generally ac-l
ptable, give rise to very little ap-
cclable    opposltion   and pave   the
way     for broader and more generous
measures in the future.     Such oppo-
ou    as has developed appears, so
far, io    he confined lo a few irrecon-
cllnhlcs and to the leader of the Quebec Conservatives, .Mr. Monk, who is
pposed to any    expenditure by Can-
do in   this    direction.      The Tory
chieftain,    K. L. Hordcn, appears liable,     as yet,    lo take any decisive
stand in the matter.     His criticisms
f the policy outlined by Sir Wilfrid
Laurier,   were entirely    non-committal.    Ho did not like to unqualifiedly
endorse Sir   Wilfrid's proposals, und
yel be had no practical policy to mice in lieu thereof.     In any event,
under the     policy    outlined    by Sir
Wilfrid, Canada will at  once participate in the cost of maintaining British naval    supremacy, to the evtenl
that this policy will relievo Ihe British treasury of the oust of maintaining ships of war in Canadian waters
and   the   maintenance of the Halifax
and    Esquimau   dry docks.     A good
start has   been made,    oven if il  be
imt    on as    generous lines   as many
enthusiastic Imperialists would have
liked.
DEATH (IF JOHN C. SLATER
The Diindns, Ont., Banner, gives
the following account of the untimely death of John C. Slater, a former
resident of Cranbrook:
A great gloom was cast over our
lingo (Watertown) on Monday
irning last (Jan. 1(1) when it heme known thai Mr. John C. Slat-
ii had been almost Instantly killed
by being cut with a circular saw in
lbe basket factory here. It appears
thai Mr. Slater, in company with
a voting man by the name of Secord,
was busily engaged sawing out stufi
for ihe manufacture of baskets and
crates. A steel dog, which is used
for throwing the lumber from the
saw, became displaced and Mr. Slater on leaning over the saw to adjust
it, was caught by the rapidly moving saw and almost cut in two. So
(Irmly wedged was his clothing in Hie
table that the saw was stopped. He
was tenderly lifted off by Mr. Secord, who also gave the signal, and
bad the mathinery slopped. Dr. .1.
u. McGregor was Immediately summoned, but before he arrived life
was extinct.

hearty welcome to the new members
..[ the board. He expressed the
hope that the work of the coming
year would be carried on in the same
spirit as prevailed hist year and that

ations of a committee ot real estate
agents, representing the board of
trade.
There were present Mayor Fink and
Aldermen Hunt, Johnson and Patmorc. Messrs. Bealc, Ward and Arnold composed the committee of local
real estate agents, who had been deputed by the board of trade to lay
certain matters before the council.
I pon motion precedence was given
to the delegation and Mr. lieale addressed the council to the following
effect, lie referred to the visits to
Cranbrook of outside real estate
agents, who frequently misrepresented the property they were handling
and thereby inflicted heavy losses upon purchasers. It was unfair to
local agents, who paid rent and helped (o maintain the city that these
agents should ho allowed to peddle
their wares without contributing a
cent to the civic revenue. He asked
that the council introduce a bylaw,
imposing a tax or license of $100 per
annum upon all outside real estate
agents doing business within the city
limits, and that a similar tax he imposed upon kerb stone brokers.
Mr. Arnold seconded the remarks
of Mr. Bealc, claiming that it was
not fair that local—resident agents-
should be taxed and that outsiders
shauld go free.
Mr. Ward followed in the same
strain, claiming that the imposition
of such a tax would be not only
protection to local, resident agents,
hut to the public as well.
City Solicitor Thompson pointed
out that the Municipal Clauses Act
made no provision for the imposition
of a tax or license upon itinerant
real estate agents. He said he had
drafted an amendment to the act,
which would give municipalities tho
desired power and this amendment
would he forwarded to Mr. Thos.
Caven, with a request that he secure
the enactment of the same into law.
This plan of action had the approval of the council and was accepted by
the committee as evidence of good
faith in tho matter, Mr. Beale promising, on behalf of the local agents,
to communicate with the resident
agents of other cities, to secure
their support of such an amendment
On motion of Aldermen Hunt and
Patmore, Bylaw (!K, the Procedure
bylaw amendment bylaw, was put
through its several stages. This bylaw sots forth the duties of the
standing committee on water works,
providing one committee, tn place of
two (or the management thereof.

bylaw provides for the division of tbe
management of the water works into
two parts, (1) financial; (2) works
and property, under the one committee, provided for by the above
bAlaw No. Ii8, and also places in the
city clerk's hands the power to levy
rates, in place of the superintendent.
Tho question of a truant officer
came up, Mayor Fink stating that
this matter had been brought to his
attention by the board of school
trustees.
It was decided, after discussion,
that the local city and provincial
police officers still held authority to
act as such and they will be Instructed to carry out this work in
conjunction with the principal of the
school and the board ot school trustees.
Council then adjourned until 4 p.m.
on Monday next.

BOARD OF TRADE
A meeting of the board of trade
was held on Tuesday evening, when
several matters of local interest
were dealt with. The meeting was
held in the Cranbrook hotel committee rooms and there were present
M. A. Macdonald, president; 0. IL
Allison, secretary; W. II. Wilson, Dr.
J. H. King, I). .1. Johnson, R. II.
Benedict, P. J. Deanc, F. A. Russell,
DeVere Hunt, C. R. Ward and R. K.
Heat tie.
Tho lirst matter taken up was in
reference to the recent election ol of-
ffieers of the local fire brigade. The
point raised was in regan. to the
appointment of Mayor Fink to the
position of honorary chief and president, without power to act. Businessmen and property owners generally felt that It was a mistake to take
the control ot the brigade out of the
hands of Mr. Fink, who is the most
experienced fire fighter in Cranbrook
and the board of trade had been requested to take such action in the
matter in conjunction with the city-
council as would result in power being replaced in his hands.
The matter was very fully discussed, it being the universal opinion
that Mr. Fink should lie given power ,
to act in case of tire, whenever he
was in a position to be present.
Finally it was decided to appoint a
committee to confer with the fire
brigade, with a view to coming to an
arrangement whereby Mr. Fink
would be sustained in the powers he
has heretofore exercised so wisely and
well in connection with the Tire department. Messrs. W. If. Wilson
and DeVere Hunt wore appointed for
this purpose.
The next matter deal I with was in
connection with outside real estate
agents. It was felt that In order
to safeguard the interests of resident
agents and to protect the public from
the raids of fakirs, a good stiff license fee should be imposed upon all
outside real estate agents, who come
into Cranbrook for a few days at a
time to unload alleged cheap Van
eouver or other out side propert y.
This proposition was favorably received and upon motion It was resolved to send a deputation of local
real estate agents to wait upon the
city council in the matter.
The third and last matter fnkm up
was in   regard   to the city scaveng-'
ing, with    particular reference      to I
the   removal of   paper    Irom   back
yards.      As at     present  conducted I
this   work entails    an unduly heavy
expense upon   certain business firms!
and it was felt that some other nr '
rangement could Ih- arrived nt where |
by the work could be more efflcfenllj
done nnd   at a lower   cost to those
served.    A resolution urging the city
council to take notion in the matter
was   adopted    ami the    meeting adjourned.

The production of "The Bonnie
Briar Bush" at the Auditorium mi
Monday evening was very pleasing,
although the principal characters
were unt equal to tbe occasion. Mr.
Alex. Milne, as Lachlan Campbell.
gave a well studied version of this
strong character, but he failed tn
hold his audience in one or two
scenes, through lack of force Miss
Eva Walley's Flora Campbell was also very unequal. Wm. M, Meiklc,
as Dr. William McClure, gave, perhaps, the most finished performance
nf any, although W. G. Colviu's
"Posty" was excellent. Miss Marie
Jaquish scored as Margaret Howe,
and little Gertrude Lindsay made a
distinct hit as Jeannic. On the
whole the production of this popular
dramatization of Ian Maclaren's famous novel was most enjoyable, despite
a very late commencement and unduly
long delays between acts. The
management of the Auditorium
should institute a rule, to be strictly
adhered to, that all performances
shall commence at 8.30 sharp. It
was nearer 9 on Monday evening
when the curtain went up. Between
acts Frank Miles, business manager
of the company, entertained the audience with freak pianoforte selections.

Lieut.-Col. Howell, ol tbe Salvation Army, delivered a very interesting and instructive address at the
local barracks last Tuesday evening
on the immigration work of the
Army. He dealt with the subject on
broad lines, pointing nut that in the
past five years the Salvation Army
had been responsible for the migration nf upwards of 50,000 people from
Great Britain to Canada, and nf this
vast number the percentage of failures was practically insignificant, in
fact could be counted on the fingers
of his two hands. He explained lucidly the pains taken by the Army
nfticials to sec that none but capable
people were sent out to Canada. He
spoke hopefully of British Columbia
as a field for the better class of
Army emigrants, the younger and
more vigorous element of those desirous of making a fresh start in life
in a new country. Lieut-Colonel
Howell went to Nelson on Wednesday.

it is the young people who deserve
the praise. Miss O Watts gave a
very elegant interpretation of the
piano score. The piece was re-demanded and the third movement given in response. Miss M. Short is a
clever and promising young pianist

teaching of Mr. Salmon. Miss

GLADSTONE CENTENARY
WIDELY      COMMEMORATED     IN
OKGAT BRITAIN AND IN
EUROPE.
The celebration on Wednesday, December 20th, of (lie. centenary nl Mr.
Gladstone's birth was not confined to
the English-speaking race. Two
circumstances, above all others, made
it imuitii—the cordiality with which
the anniversary was acclaimed, and
ttie European, un less than the Imperial, character it assumed.
"There is no need to say what he
did for Bulgaria, Scrvla ami Monte
negro," said Lord Lorcburn in hi
tribute to the great leader at th
commemorative banquet of Young
Liberals. These states, with Italy,
Urecce and Finland, saw to It that
no opportunity was missed to give
adequate expression to their own
sense of national indebtedness.
In London tlie main celebration
centred in the Gladstone stati
Westminster Abbey and Mr. Thorny-
croft's bronze efllgy and group in tbe
Strand. ltesides the banquet of the
National League of Young Liberals, a
Gladstone exhibition was opened al
Southward
Moreover, in London tbe International character of the anniversary
was emphasized by the special visit
ol a deputation ol Bulgarians, headed
by Dr. Danefl, formerly prune minister of Bulgaria, who brought in tribute a large silver wreath, beautiful
in workmanship, mined and made in
tlie territory nt King Ferdinand, anil
worth intrinsically £250.
Mr. Dryce, the British ambassador
in Washington, delivered a striking
address to his old chief in New York,
and President Tail, writing to convey his regrets that he could nol be
present, wrote, "Gladstone is one ol
my hemes."
The centenary of the birth nf William Ewart Gladstone, who. alter a
long life ol brilliant achievements,
chiefly In tho domain ol politics, died
early ou the morning of Ascension
Day. May 19, 1808, at the age ol
eighty-nine years, was honored all
over the empire and throughout
Europe.
Marked oul Irom his boyhood to]
great distinction in public life, Mr
Gladstone far surpassed the expectations of his early admirers, alike In

life of bis time extended even to
those social obligations fur which he
had little time to spare and, it
might he supposed, less inclination.
Yet he was n charming and fascinating figure in those circles that were
not debarred to him by political considerations.
Lovers of freedom and of the liberties ol the people celebrated the centenary all over the world. To politics (Hailstone brought two qualities, which the reactionary has never

at the forthcoming election, takes
memory back to a crucial period in
Mr  Gladstone's career.
Sir Robert Peel's budget ot 1842
was n long step towards free trade,
and the duke of Buckingham resigned
the office of privy seal on that ac-
Count. Then, as now, the dukes
were agninsl the people. The next
greal advance towards free trade was
made in 1815, when, in March of

During the week commencing 31st
January, Victoria will be in evidence
in all matters pertaining to agriculture. On Monday, the 31st January, a meeting ot tbe secretaries uf
the agricultural lairs and associations
of the province will take place. Tbe
main aims and objects ut the convention are to arrange about the
securing ot judges for future exhibitions so as to compile a circuit
that will enable (airs to be held on
dates not conflicting with others
situated in tbe same district. Other
matters pertaining to the more effective carrying out of the annual exhibitions throughout the province,
will be considered, and no doubt, as
a result of such a conference, much
good will accrue to the advancement
of agricultural fairs and exhibitions
in British Columbia.
On Tuesday, the 1st February, and
the following day, a meeting ot the
Central Farmers' Institute will he j
held, when all proposals, resolutions j
ami matters for immediate consideration will be plaoed on the agenda and
finally dealt with during the convention. This institute is representative of all the farmers' institutes
throughout the province, and all
matters pertaining to agriculture ami
the betterment of the present condition of the farmer are laid lietore the
conference for consideration nnd decision. It Is anticipated that many
of the institutes are furnishing their
representative delegates with proposals to submit to the convention
and which, if carried out, cannot but
have the best remits for practical
operation.

Three anil a lialf years work, such
as hauling wood and sprlnkliug tho
streets, has cost 1.119.35. and we
have the work harness left. The
council also purchased a work team
fur $450.00, used them all summer
grading streets and then sold the
team for $450.00, and have the |
wagon left, value $100.00. This

$531.77 landed in Cranbrook, ami not
$500.00, and fretg.it as stated. It
was not bought [nr the race track
ami never wns on lite race track. If
it was used there, was it not for the
best interests of tlie city in helping
an enterprise that brings hundreds
here every year'.' This roller has
done good wink ou the streets ami
will tin better work next spring?
Re burning of school Although
tlie school is entirely in the hands of
the school board, 1 spoke to Mr
Rollers, wlm was then secretary of
the school hoard, about Insurance,
ami he Informed    me  th;it   the  li   C.
government  held   tlie deeds and  thai
they carried their own insurance.
Re gravel pit. That we paid 25o.
per luad for the gravel used on the
streets is absolutely untrue and is a
greal injustice tu Mr. Maker, as he
gave llns gravel absolutely tree.
Re voters1 list. Did any man who
sat in Ihe mayor's chair in Cranbrook or any other city personally
check each and every name on the
list'.' The court of revision was
properly advertised, and as no objections were made to any names on
tho list, it was taken to be correct.
Re grading of Baker street. Bylaw No. li;i, provided $3345.00 for the
grading of Baker street, of which
$3200 war actually used, and not
$7,000 as stated in the hand hills referred to above. Said bylaw No. Iii)
was published in lull, giving names of
streets ami amounts lo he expended'
on each, in the Herald of April 2!),
1000.
II every other street was paved
and parked in the most beautiful
manner and Maker street was left
in tbe condition it was in, what'kind
or an impression do you suppose it
would make on the hundreds who
pass through our city every year anil
only judge liy what they see from the
station?
In conclusion I wish to thank tho
good citizens of Craubsook for the
hearty support they gave me anil the
most excellent council returned with
me, which 1 accept as a thorough
vindication dI the unwarranted
charges made against me and the retiring council.
Thanking you again, yours very
truly,

"As sonic apprehension appears to
exist among licensees of timber lands
as to the effect ol tbe terms upon
which licenses are held, it is proposed .to settle the question as to the
contunity of the tenure of these
licenses by an amendment to tlie
Land Act.
On account of the great
increase in the work of tbe provincial
courts it has been deemed advisable
to call Into force by proclamation
the "Court of Appeals Act, .m>7."
The establishment of this court will
greatly facilitate the administration
of justice and tend to lessen the cost
and avoid the delays ol litigation.
"As questions have arisen as to the
jurisdiction, rights and privileges
possessed by Hritish Columbia in th*
fisheries, and water rights, which lie
in the Dominion railway heft, and as
to title In the lands known as Indian
reservi-s land, my advisors have tak
eu steps to bring about a determination ol these matters.
"The civil service commissioners
have completed tbe work of grading,
classifying and adjusting the salaries nl ihe members of the civil sit
Wee, and the result of their findings
will be laid before you.
"The putalie accounts for tbe fiseal
year will he laid before you early in

The Aurora mine at Movie is reported to be making very satisfactory
progress, and tbe shareholders are
feeling jubilant over their property,
and the way in which the work is
showing it up, and it will, without
doubt, soon be numbered among the
shipping mines of the district, ['reparations are being made to sink a
winze in No. 2 tunnel, where they expect to uncover and locate a dip of
an ore body, which Is now in sight.
The lower tunnel is also being actively pushed and they hope to strike
the ore body very shortly in the tunnel.
As will be seen by the announcement appearing elsewhere in thos issue, S. Mighton has disposed of his
cigar store to Lester Clapp. Mr.
Mighton intends retiring from business and enjoying a well earned rest.
During the several years Mr. Mighton
has Urn in business in this city, he
has always taken a keen interest in
its progress and has set a splendid
example in enterprise by the manner
in which lie conducted his business.

throughout the interior and was
probably the largest ami best slocked
stor of its kind in the province, outside of Vancouver. Mr. Clapp, who
succeeds .Mr. Mighton, intends to
conduct the business upon equally
progressive lines.

Summing all this up you couldu'l really blame Horace for absorbing the germ, ilui u distributed its
agony keener lu him than lu any of ihe other buys,
save, protriy. Bashful Hob Itobley. That pair got
the malady so virulent ii seemed to take all the life
out of'em. Simply shot lu pieces with love, they took
io wearing their smiles upside down nml mooning

Before Hetty Bueklej turned .huso soft brown orb*
of hers upon bis lean, freckled, yellow whiskered
countenance In- had exhibited some mastery over said
legs.    He seemed tu guide uuil control 'em with aver
aging success.
"Hut Jest east your eye on (hem legs now." Sand
storm Smith observes during that romance period io
tho career of H. Blllby, Ksipiire. "They've gone plum
cruzy. They Woll'l glie the poor devil tl lUOUielll'f

get It; let him drag himself to the warm edges of

out of the Home Grub in n tanglefoot rush.
"Vezzeree. Jonesy," tnncludes Hint Smith Individual, "Horace is most twice ns deep iii love ns Bashful

Yes, it hud begun desi ending on Horace In heavy,
Jarring frag nts thai he wasn't making headway
lie wns doing Ills desperation best with his legs; had
changed the rui of bis heard so frequent us to exhaust
the patience nnd skill of Gluseppl IVrunl; hnd threatened the life of I'n Hung on un average of twice per

n duel, nml Anally, Hu- Hon. Cuthberl having turned
down ihe challenge by wire from Vancouver, hnd wm
ten a poem for Ihe Trumpet.
The title of HorOCO's poem Was "In Ihe l.ulr of lie-
spalr," und the Ural lines marked time something like
had taken him In on the nig Joahua claim. So the
project's clamped und setileil und the pair uf them
set out to pick up thut bnrtfiiln In the lion market.
They advance on Salt Luke City swift as stugo and
rail can take them. They find that lion as por advertisement, and Sandstorm does tho shopping, Horace holding buck kinder pale nnd silent, sizing up
lhat gray nosed king o1 boasts from u higher personal
Interest than exists In the breast of .Mr. Sandys Storm
Smith, Ksqulre.
Though past the ago limit for proper and nourishing man eating, that Hon wns some impressive in

when u(i jumps Horace Hulby and hurls hlsself at the
ragiu' beast. Jest one jolt und the pom- old chap goes
down In a heap, you ou him with u strangle hold.
Out rushes the dugo an' Ids stage hands with chains
un' Inui bars, whereat Nero Is hustled back Into his
cage afore any one gets u lump on his age and de
creplliiess.
"There's the act for you, Horace, my hoy, an'
you've got that Hashful Hub Itobley faded to a fresh
water ghost."
Sandstorm Inul worked bis oratorlcats up Into one
of those aforementioned spells. You might any he
was roping Horace with a hypnotic lariat, and he sure
hnd him going. Thut long-legged victim of luve und
melancholy began to see himself under a million
en mile power spotlight—the Hero bowing before the
cheering multitude, the rescuer or Betty Buckley
from u horrible death. Hul suddenly there gleamed
up In his mind .i discouraging light
"Sur-po.se. Sandstorm," he gulped, "thai Hon should
bite n bote In uu- an' dlsflgger me. I ain't so much ou
looks nohow, an* with a chunk out of me I'd be In
worse 'n before, hero or no hero."
"There you go again half-cocked," snapped Sandstorm. "How's ii Hun with no teeth golli' lo bite you';
ll certain ain't gain' to hurt your tough hide none If
he gums you a little. Lions that are advertised cheap
as painter's props are o]<| glimmers. That's pretty
near u cinch. Even if he should have a couple of
played out grinders left wo can i-uii 'em. I'uii 'em.
see! an' tile down his claws."
A dull light of hope returned to Horace's sad eyes.
siowiy he reached nut nnd took Sandstorm's hand
nnd n tear fell on It as he mi id;
"You are sure gain* to slick by mc lu this thing,
Snndsiorm Smith)   You won't blip u whisper on It to
n llvin" soul   am' ,ou better not," h hied, getting
fierce, "for if you did i'ti massacre you. I'm de*
peruie. Sandstorm -Biupderln desiwraie. if l wasn't
I wouldn't give inore'n hair uu cur t,, nny of this Hon
business."
To prove past peril ami venture of doubt Hint he's
sincere ns a Yukon tlaptlst, Sandstorm offers in go
halves on tl Jtpcnso, which he could with im strain
on tin- purse latch, seeing us LUUc Sumiuv  Harbin
'bnt cage, stepping not over gentle and light on
Nero's face. Then he does something with that lion's
tall that causes him to open tils features most awful
wide and bellow like forty burros.
Sandstorm Is satisfied perfect nml Horace thinks he
Is after he comes to and sees Sandstorm running his
bunds around playful on that old lion's gums.
"He's got one wisdom tooth, Horace," calls out
Sandstorm, pointing lo the solitary survivor, "an'
that's all. He's Jest the party we're looking for down
to the lessermost specifications."
It couldn't be said that Horace Dolby's enthusiasm
over that lion worked up In ihe high notes, but after
he'd seen Nero fed on pap und n line-milled ment hash
and heard him purr himself off Into u peaceful slumber
be sighs deep and prolonged nml gives Ids consent to
the purchase.
Tbe next thing on the programme of that lion buying
expedition Is the pro. urcincnt of some handy lad as

Snndsiorm nfterwnrd. "Yon cniildu'l hardly call it mi

Horace irulpscd back from  I'tali UeW me lite s.pud
that he .had some devilment in deep brew. But I never *
got more than purtlul wise to whul was coming off.
I've got to accord il right here to Uuil hftin li iff the
Smith family tbnl ho hnd acting talent most high
developed, for when the side wall uf in llnug's hum
dry shop broke oul with n billboard six feel lull, un-
uounctng the coming of Spnvlnl the Great's Work'
(famous Lion nnd Dug Circus, Sandstorm Smith was
apparently the most Woiulerslrti.k gold dinger hi Kb-"

He went urmiiid spluttering about thai circus HW*

u nuturuliiess of man ■ thai wns unhci'sal deceiving, And he bud some groundwork tu piny ou, eon.

picture on tlu> bill nave the poor obi guuiuier boar's

Also his mouth stood open sufficiently wide to recept
u muss mooting,
But thore was no sign of Horace and Sandstorm
on tbo duy Nero arrived, which menus there was Just
two nbsences from Hit- total camp populace. Smith.
nays he didn't lei Ho nice include himself among those
present, ns he'd given Spavlnl special instructions to,
bring that lion into Goldfleld roaring up to bis plc-
torlnls. He hud banked ou keeping Horace's nerve up
for the climax to his project, wherefore It wasn't according lo Solon  to show him that Hon 'cept In the
poor old critter's reposeful moments.
Sptivlurs little circus tent was pitched Just abovs
the Inlet tu l'lgtnll alley and It didn't take long for,
the trulls leading therefrom to he trod shiny. Public
Interest wasn't permitted to slack, s. Smith saw to
that. Incidental to casual hair-raising rumors be
gave wing to wns the report that the show would be
one act shy, ns Nero hnd made n light lunch off tht'
t wo musical bloodhounds in the course of a private re-
hcnrsnl.
There sure wns some clnss to the way he piled up
the agony on Hint bloodhound devouring yarn, pro-
duclng Blgucd affidavits from Spavlnl and bis two
Swede helpers. Also he contrived a fearsome looking
muszlo for that ravenous beast, so he couldn't open
his mouth fir enough to exhibit his bereaved gums.
At Inst 'iwns nil most bcuutlful laid and set for

When the Widow Buckley mug the lunch gong that
day she didn't miss count reckoning on the swift inrush of the full camp census returns. Aa the show
wns billed to begin ut one P, M. prompt there was
extra special Inducement to dine quick and hot-foot
for the choice benches, In their eagerness some of
ihe boys would have neglected the Widow's rule compelling the deposit of pocket hardware and cutlery In
the reception basket near the doorway, only Sandstorm pointed out each Individual net of neglect. He-
hud promised Horace to 'fiscate that basket of guns
while be (Horace) was grappling with tbe raging
beast, for it wouldn't have been promotive to Horace's
health to Have a dozen or so sure shooters potting
him nml the lion indiscriminate with lead slugs that
measured mostly .44-.4fi at the waist.
How thut Smith party managed to snake out that
basket of guns under our very noses I never solved.
Hut he did. Also be procured Mr. Bulby a seat Just
abaft Hetty Buckley's little counter and near enough
the Home Grub's portals to make Main street lu ont'
