Tlie following communication sets
forth very forcibly the progress being made in tho matter ot re-openlng
the club building, and sets out tho
steps by which It Is hoped to bring
this about ^^^^^^^^
Several attempts have beeu made to
re-open tbe Boys club as a Cranbrook
Recreation Club, but the tremendous
oxpense involved In putting lt in order and running It has proved a great
stumbling block.   Two meetings were
called at the City Hall, but so few
people responded, and so little support given, that the project was allowed to drift. One cause for the non-
suport undoubtedlp was that the pyeo-
ple felt that the dues were too high,
and yet they had to be this high ln
order to meet the initial expense of
repairing, painting etc., as well as the
ordinary running expenses.    On the
other hand, no organization could be
founded on definite lines without some
promise of membership. Another reason the interest lagged in those trying to promote the idea, was that the
Navy League to whom for   patriotic
reasons we had planned giving Friday and Saturday morning at lhe
club, had in the meantime rented the
Parish ball.   However, we went on
and obtained all  the necessary information, and undoubtedly had not
the elections come along when they
did, further effort would have   been
made to find a way out.   Now, however, the necessary impetus has been
given the project.    Major Hicks has
decided that the Parish hall did not
offer enough in the way of equipment
•tc, to hold the boys' Interest and he
came to me to aak If the former Idea
of opening the Boys' club had been
definitely abandoned.   I told him no,
that we were only waiting to tee   if
we could find a solution for our difficulty.   "Necessity is the mother of
Invention."     A solution had to   be
found, and It was found.   We decided
to canvass a few public-spirited clti-
sens and see If we could find enough
people to back us for the Initial expense which had proved our original
•tumbling block.   The following1 people have consented to back us to the
extent of $100.00 each and to them a
-peat deal of credit goes: :
R. E. Beattie.
R. J. Barter.
Cranbrook Trading Co,
J. P. Fink.
Mrs. F. W>. Green.
Dr. F. W. Green,
G. Hogarth.
A. Lettch. i
Dr. MacKinnon,
F. M. MacPherson.
Dr. Miles.
Navy League.
D, Peterson.
F. Parks.
G. J. Spreull.
Mrs. Elmore Staples.
Blmore Staples.
J. R. Walkley.
Now, our proposition,   an   we   have
worked It out is thnt there will he
no meeting of the Club members until things nre nil lined up nnd started.
Anything thai has been taken up thnt
ii not Approved <>f can iw changed,
but tho only way now Is (o pet tlu
thing going and make any necessary
changes later. Trust a few people
now to gel It going as nearly as possible to suit overyonc concerned. To
meet the first payment on our ropalr
and renovating work tt will be necessary to asses tho peoplo who linve
signified their willingness to back us
|I6 of the $100 promised. We will
then try for a two yenr's term to pay
the remainder. Our hopo Is that we
cm surprise the guarantors and pay
them back, even their first subscription, before many mouths, We have
an agreement with Mr. Gill that In-
wires us a three years lease, with
the option at the end of that time of
extending the lease or of buying for
W.600. Anyone interested in seeing
thts agreement can do so by speaking
to Major Hicks. The business end of
lt will be well looked after. Mr.
Spreull and Major Hicks have drawn
up this Agreement wtth Mr. Gill.
Now os to the membership and
dues. It ls proposed aB a starting basil to have the following classes of
membership:
Family membership to Include parents and children up to 21 years of
age $6.00 a month or $50 a year. AH
yearly dues payable In advance. Any
member ot family over 21 yean $2 a
month or IW a year.
Ont of town family members $8 a
Calgary Board of Trade Memorializes Dom. Govt, to
Help Unemployment
With a view to asBlBtlng in the
present unemployment situation the
Culgary Board of Trade decided at
recent meeting to memorialize the
Dominion govornment to proceed at
once with the completion of the Banff**-
Wlndennere automobile road, a distance of 11..' miles still awaiting construction. It is contended by the
board of trade thnt the winter season
Ik thu best tlmo of tho yenr to do thid
work, and that It can be done at this
tlmo with moro efficiency and Iobs expense.
The board Is not unking the government to take on any new work in its
request, but simply that the old programme decided upon some years ago
be carried out. It was the original
intention of both the B.C. government
and the Dominion government to com
plete this work ln four years, two of
which have already expired, and the
board feels that owing to the unemployment situation, the work of completing this portion of the road si. uiu
be undertaken at once.
Those who are conversant with the
Grand Circle tour and other roltes
which the completion of this road will
open up contend that the tourist traffic which will result, will ln dollars
and cents mean more than the whole
of the wheat crop of the province of
Alberta.
The tour tn a general way starts
from Calgajy, runs through Banff on;
to Castl", then south to the International boundary where it crosses into
Idaho.
This alto road Is all completed with
the exception of the miles of which
the board of trade Is urging the
completion, and travels through some
of the most interesting mountain
scenery on the North American continent.

family regardless of age but extends
no right to vote or hold office.
Out of town family members with
right to vote and hold office $5.
single members $2, including right to
single mempers -2, Including rigt to
vote and hold office.
These dues must hold good for one
year. After that adjustments may
be made If found advisable. The mem.
bershlp may be open to anyone. Some
who may be overlooked in the general canvass for members are invited
to send ln their names to Major
Hicks.
There will be an official meeting
held as soon as the number of members warrants it.
A word here as to our running expenses outside of the Initial cost. We
figure them about like this:
Instructor snd his wife $ 90.00
Heating        160.00
Lights,  approximately         30.00
Wnter free   j
Incidentals          50.00 |
Total      325.00
..Not including taxes or Insurance,
which we pay in lieu of rent for first
two years.
Tlie City council ls giving us the
water free and lights at a very low
rate. If wo can get 50 family members at $5, 15 out of town members
nt $3, 20 single members out of town
nt 92, which would total some $486,
It would clear us by $160.
Wo can hope to pny off our debt
gradually and wo can devlso wayH of
augmenting our Income later to pay
off more quickly. Wo may nlso get
ji larger membership than we dare
hope for. Once the club can hold a
mooting of members we can have a
constitution snd by-laws. An annual
meeting will be held as soon ns possible at which (he members will select
nn executive board of say 11 membors and officers to run tholr club
for them, and regular meetings will
be held throughout the year. As to
the benefits derived from membership ln tho club there will be many.
Kor the children there will be swimming—lessons ln swimming will not
cost extra—drills, gymnasium, basketball, and so fort it. Certains hours,
say from 4 to 6 on all school days,
school children will have the use of
the pool and gym. An Instructor—
who by the way will be the former Instructor, Mr. Mirams, and this fact
will please many—will live with his
wife ln the building and It will be
his duty to stay at the swimming pool
during these hours and look after the
children. For the men we suggest an
evening a week, saw Wednesday, as
"stag," for their exclusive use of the
club. Friday night will be gtven over to the Navy League for the boys.
Saturday morning also for the League
but not the swimming pool. Other
ideas that we hope to work up Include
a monthly dance, a movie, a glee and
a dramatic club. The ladies would
have the use of the Club at all times
except Wednesday evening, Friday
evening' and Saturday morning. Mr.
Mirams will have full authority to
draw up his own schedule of classes.

A meeting of local women was convened on Monday evening of this
wutk at tbe city hall, under the auspices of the Women's Institute. Its
object was to discuss local municipal
affairs and problems, aud, in view of
the forthcoming civic elections, discuss the pros and cons of putting women candidates into the various fields
for election.
Mrs. Constant iue, president of the
Institute, opened the meeting, making
a few remarks in regard to women taking au interest in politics, or rather, municipal matters,
er, municipal matters. She then invited Mrs. Grevett, of Calgary, to
speak.
Mrs. Grevett gave a very Interesting talk on what was really expected
of women in municipal matters. She
i. Ised them lo choose the very
strongest candidates possible, and to
give to them every support.
Business then followed, and lt was
moved by Mrs. T. C. Armstrong and
seconded by Mrs. Spence that the
committee be organized to select women for candidates ln the coming municipal elections, which was carried
unanimously.
It was moved by Mrs. Constantino
seconded by Mrs. Woodman, that the
name of the organization be the Citizens' League.    Carried.
Officers were then elected elected,
Mrs. John Laurie acting as temporary chairman:
President   Mrs. I. Baxter
Secretary Mrs. A. C. Shankland
Treasurer Mrs. J. H. McQuaid
A vote of thanks to Mrs. Grevett
was moved by Mrs. Constantino and,
seconded by Mrs. Musser. It waB
carried unanimocsly.
It was decided to hold a further
meeting in the near future, and this
will take place on Monday evening of
next week, as announced elsewhere.
when from the numedous names sug-
vested some may be selected as candidates.

This week's Herald has been produced under a measure of difficulty

unwonted bright effulgence from the
finished job has so dazzled the staff
that smoked glusses will likely have

members always welcome. There will
of course be many details that will
need adjusting, but as time goes on
It will be easier to see the weak
spots, and besides, Rome want

cranbrook to get behind this Idea and
shove. It is a club for all Cranbrook
and vicinity, men and women, boys
and girls, youug and old, and we will
trv bo to divide tt that everyone gets
a share In lt. We need just such a
club and once It Is started there Is
no doubt It will go through and flourish. But It Is an undertaking, and a
great responsibility and the few who
are' actually shouldering lt will need
all the support and help that Cranbrook and vicinity can give them.
Next week we shall start out canvassing for members. If the Individuals
to whose use the club le dedicated

OTTAWA.—This being the week
that Premier Drury of Ontai'io makes
his bow to tho west, the east Is trying to make out what lt means. Of
course, Drury and Mr. Crerar say that
the trip has no .political significance,
and the latter denies that he ls about
to retire. No one expected that he
would, but Is is quite probable that
the visit to Winnipeg will be seized
upon as a means of finding out how
the west takes to Drury. As a politician the latter lias {gained much
prestige through his position as the
head of the government of Ontario,
for he who presides over the destinies
of the first province In Canada counts
for a great deal more than the leader of a new Opposition party In Parliament.
The post mortem on the East Elgin
election has been most Interesting. A
number of the government workers
say that they never had a chance to
win. They point out that being m
rural constituency But Blga to doited with U.F-O. Clubs and. that a
month before the date of polling tbe
members of these decided to support
McDermand undor any and all circumstances. This done, a large number of them did not even attend public meetings, hence there was no
chance %t getting at them from the
platform. They admit that Morrison,
director of the IT. F. O. organization,
has built up a strong machine that
gets results, and that lt ls to be reckoned with in all the rural ridings of
Ontario. The old parties complain
loudly over the dearth of local workers; outside help may be efficient,
but K falls to get next to tne farmers.
The government Ib not lying down
under the East Elgin defeat. On the
contrary, the work of building up a
strong organization in all parts of the
country is being tackled vigorously.
This applies to Quebec quite as much
as to any of the other provinces. With
the Prime Minister throwing himself
unreservedly Into the fight, results of
an encouraging nature are expected.
The Liberals feel much elated over
the result of the British Columbia elections. The gossip here was that the
Oliver administration was In a very
bad way, a majority over all having
been considered quite out of the question. But Oliver was much stronger
than had been thought. Had he not
been lt would have bun impossible
for him to elect as many supporters,
for British Columbia Is a naturally
strong Conservative province. Oliver
may well feel satisfied with the result
for he has done Infinitely better than
either Foster in New Brunswick or
Norrls In Manitoba. The Federal Liberals, of course, count on the assistance of his organisation.
Speaking of federal by-elections,
the protectionist element finds quite
a problem In the women voters, especially In the rural districts. Where!
the farmers are well organized their
wives naturally support the Farmers'
candidate, he being one of their own.
To overcome this tendency, strong arguments have been used, especially
in dealing with the fiscal issue. In
dealing with the women, tt ls necessary to begin at the beginning, which
Is some job. But there does not
seem to be much help for lt.
The situation Is quite different from
that which existed during tbe reciprocity campaign. Then there was a
clear cut Isbuo; there were but two
parties In the fight and a voter was
either for or against. Today the Issue is not as clearly defined, anl the
Opposition parties seem determined
that they shall not be brought to
grips on the issue that the government would desire to make supreme.
To add to the confusion there are at
least three strong parties In the
field. Most Important of all, the electorate has been doubled and 60 per
cent, of the voters, the women, have
not been schooled In the merits of
protection, low tariff, or free trade.
Nor can the work of educating them
be dono In a ya or two.
The most satisfactory figure of the
whole situation is that the public
manifest a desire to listen, and understand. Never have public leaders
been greeted by larger audiences- Ab
long as a person has a reputation as

It was predicted in police circles
last week that the hold-up men, Zal-
Inskl and Rathwell, who figured fn
[lie spectacular hold-up episode last
week In J. Armour's pool room, besides being concerned In another llttlo incident of the same nature u short
time beforehand, might find themselves heing made an example of
when tht judge came to hand out sentences for their offence. So It proved
when the case came up at Fernie this
week on Monday lu the criminal court
of the county judge. Zallnski, an
Austrian, and adjudged to be the
leader, received a jail sentence of
seven years, and In addition is to receive twenty-four lashes. Tiie other
prisoner, Rathwell, was sentenced to
five years ln jail, without the aldi-
lion of any lashes. It wus not the extent of the proceeds of the hold-up
thut moved the judge to sternness,
for the men were rewarded with less
than a hundred dollars for their trouble, hut apparently the necessity of
making nn example in the case, and
the hope that, stiff sentences might
provo deterrent.

Interesting reading concerning school

'ectlonB.     A Christmas Tree and En-
Snow which fell last week-end bids
fair to remain for a while, and will
likely provide the setting to the festive season that Is always associated
with it. In the meantime the merry
jingle of the sleigh bells has been
heard on the streets, and the kiddies
have been busy with their sleds. In
this connection parents would be well
advised to heed the warning published
In this Issue by the Chief of Police,
relative to the kiddies using the sidewalks for sleighing. There are sections of sidewalk that provide most
seductive slopes for the youngsters
vith their sleds, but there are also
somo dangerous street intersections to
be reckoned with, and sooner or later
a kiddle on a fust-moving sled l
likely to get mixed up with a vehicle
coming round a corner with results
that are likely to prove serious. In
this case an ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure, and paernts
would do well to impress the danger
of the practice upon their children.
In regard to providing a place for
the children to sleigh ride, the Chief
(jf Police wishes to announce that
Fenwlck avenue, between Edward and
Louis streets, will be closed to general traffic for the winter In order
that ft may he used exclusively by the
children for sleigh riding.
Whether it is the possible advent
of women candidates Into the arena
of municipal politics on a far larger
scale than ever before, that is responsible or not, is hard to say, but It
Is a fact that municipal mattes are
engaging a good deal of attention fn
somo quarters Just now.
In the event of Mayor Qenest not
putting himself forward for a second
term of office, it seenis probable at
tliis early date, that two allormen of
the 1920 council would be contesting
for the mayoralty, namely, Aldermen
A. J. Raiment and A. A. MacKinnon.
Other names have been mentioned also, but not with the degree of finality
that seems to attach itself to theso
names.
Six aldermen are to be elected) nnd
outside of Aldermen Punn, who is
not likely, on account of being away
from the city so much, to be in the
contest, and AMennen MacKinnon
and Balment. who may contest the
mayoralty, only Aldermen Jones and
Flowers remain to be considered as
possibilities for 1981, if they run.
The sixth seat on the council become
vacant when Mr. B. Eakln resigned
to take charge of the electric light
plant, and has not been filled since.
A number of other suggestions
have been heard as to aldermanfe
candidates, and It Is possible that
one or two ladles may be numbered
among the candidates.
On the School Board, three vacancies will occur. Chairman H. White,
and Trustees Nisbet and Henderson
expiring. Here again a woman candidate has been suggested, the feeling among those favoring the suggestion being that two ladles on the
school board fs about as It should be.
For tbe vacancy on the Board of
Police Commissioners wbic*. Altler-
man A. J. Balmem* would relinquish
at least one candlditx is definitely In
the field, ln the jerson of Rev. R. W.
Lee, pastor of the Methodist Church.
Mr. Lee has consented to run for
tbe police commisslonershlp as the
result of pressure being brought to
bear on him from several quarters.
A number of independent delegations
have presented the matter to Mr. Lee
assuring him of their Btrong support,
and In deference to these Mr. Lee is
allowing hia name to be brought forward as a candidate.

h'EAR OV THE LAW
A great deal of comment has
passed during the last few days
regarding tliu youth of the city.
This very fact in itself clearly
reveals how important any
matter regarding the welfare of
(lie hoys and girls is. Lawlessness is always a serious matter
but when it is in conjunction
with the youtli of the land it is
o f much greater concern.
Homes, schools and churches
have been freely blamed but
possibly another agent should
be accused and cross-examined.
The fear and respect of the law
cannot be inculcated in our
youth if it is apparent on every
hand that laws, and especially
one in particular, can be broken without any dire consequences. As an example, failure on
the part of the government to
enforce the Prohibition Act
has led many to believe, young
and old, that difficulty in enforcing an act makes it null
and void. This process of
thinking is soon applied to other laws with consequences injurious to the moral life of a
community. Some would maintain that the "fear of the law"
is the wrong weapon or principle, and whereas this may be
an excellent theory the fact
remains that throughout   the

constructive work has been accomplished by no means outweighs the excellent work done

THK YUKON GUM)
Although it wus uot until 1894 tluit
thu Yukon gold rush started und so
brought togetlier from aU parts of
tho world tho hardy searchers for
the hidden treasure, it was known or
rather reported, as far back as 1859
that there were great Btores of tlie
yellow metal ln tlie far north. A fur
trader's assistant heard from the Indians of streams where gold was
found In the gravel and, as he said,
"he often intended to go north In
search of the place but he never got
the time."
But in 1S94 a small party of explorers arrived in the Yukon from Nova
Scotia. In the rush that year were
Robert Henderson, the Nova' Scotia
man, and George Carmack with their
Indians and helpers. During the flrBt
year Henderson found a little gold
along the Indian river. It was in that
year, too, that Carmack shot a moose
on the Bonanza river and took a portion of the animal to the stream to
wash the meat. While doing, so he
saw some yellow particles in tbe water. He washed out a pan of the gravel and found more nuggets ln the pan
than he had ever seen In one pan before. He staked his claim; the news
spread rapidly, and In a short time
there was a rush to the spot. Hen
derson, who had advised Carmack to
go to that district ln hts hunt for the
precious metal, got nothing out of
the discovery, although be ls commonly regarded as the discover of the
Klondike wealth.
In a short time Uie tales of immense
wealth drew men to the north from
all parts of the world. All sorts and
conditions of men—from the tenderfoot to the veteran explorer—men
with perfect equipment and others
with almost nothing, poured into the
treasure hud, some to make money
and others to lose money and honor
In the chase for the riches.

Under tlie system of distribution
by the delivery and mall order methods, tlie question of municipal supervision of the observance of tbe law
would bo reduced to a minimum,
Without this system the municipalities will have to accept equal, and
possibly greater responsibilities, than
they hold now under prohibition. The
government bas claimed tbat tbe
municipalities bave been largely responsible for not enforcing the present law, and If that is tbe belief thon
Uie government control measure
should be drafted in such a way ae
to relieve the municipalities from all
tlie onus possible.
It might be claimed tbat under
system whereby deliveries of liquor
are affected as suggested, the costs
will be Increased. Our belief Is tbat
they will be less, as the government
would have fewer overhead charges
to bear than if it adopted the policy
of establishing scores of stores all over the province. Wo admit there are
many other aspects or the question
which will come up for discussion in
the Immediate future, but as a basic
principle ot government control, and
with a, view to Introducing such a law
as will minimise the possibilities of
evasion, We advance this suggestion
of a delivery system as one well
worth serious consideration,—-Victoria

Soiletism Depletes Population
There may be some good .points
about tbe Soviet systaem of government, or whatever system ls in general operation throughout Russia—If
they are not past finding out. For
example, we frequently are told that
there ls an evil tendency In Canada,
and ln several other countries, of
people leaving the farms and the
rural districts and crowatng cities to
the point ot congestion. The Bolshevlki In Russia have arrested that
tendency. According to a census
Just completed the population of
Petrograd ls only 71 per cent, ot what
tt was ln the days before the war
when autocracy was In the saddle,
while tbat of Moscow has fallen to
about halt of what It was in 1914.
But the country districts have sot
gained at the expense of the cities.
The impulsion as a whole has declined by more than 10 per cent—-

,emt\     SINCE jl»70      l|fi
Shilo
As mentioned ln the Herald last
week lt seems reasonably certain that
the construction of the trans-provincial road over the Hope Mountains
west of Princeton, to complete a mot'
or route from the interior to the coast,
\...i be proceeded with at areasonably
early date, with some assistant^ from
the federal government. The following throws further light on the status
of the undertaking:
PRINCETON.— The Interesting information that the Dominion government had approved plans for the con-
struction of a highway from Vancouver to Hope and from Hope to Osoyoos, and would pay 40 -per cent, ot
the cost as soon as work was commenced thereon, has been made by
Mr. H. H. Stevens, M.P., of Vancouver, before tbe Prmceton Board of
Trade.
Mr. Stevens explained to the board
that the Dominion government had
arranged to assist all the provinces
with the road building programmes
and had set aside certain moneys for
that purpose. There was about one
million and a quarter dollars allotted
to B.C. and this would be used in
paying 40 per cent, of the construction
of a number of highways, plans for
which had been submitted by the B.
C. government and approved by the
authorities at Ottawa. Among these
roads was one from Vancouver to
Hope, thence to Osoyoos and on to
the Crow's Nest. The money for this
would be paid as soon as construction commenced.
Last spring, Mr. Stevens said, the
late Senator Shatford enlisted bis
services and they took up the matter
of this road with tbe authorities with
good results.
Personally he was strongly in favor
of the construction of the road from
Hope to Princeton as soon as possible. The low cost ot building this
road by which the Interior would be
linked up with the coast, rendered it
he considered that the time would
Imperative that the work be undertaken with as little delay as possible.
As regards the Fraser Canyon route,
he considered tbat the time woull
come when that and many other
roadg would be opened up. It bad
been alleged, he aald, that owing to
snow on the summit the road would
he closed against traffic for a good
portion of the year and he wished to
know If this was really the case.

CRANBROOK STRMT.
^ppoaiu aie Bank ol Ooamero*
(Fernie Free Press.)
The "quasi-pure" neighbor city of
Cranbrook, during the past week has
been afflicted with a wave of crime
un precedented   in    this   vicinity   ln
volume for many moons. In tbe criminal courtB of that city this week some
fifteen cases have came up for hearing.   The list Includes various forms
of theft and houBe-breakiog, hold-ups,
cattle stealing, indecent assault with
intent  to  do  grevious   bodily  harm,
and ln his particular Instance a more
serious charge may be preferred, aB
one of the victims of the knife is In
grave danger of losing his life. It 1b
regrettable that epidemics of this nature  unfortunately break out in all
communities at   different   times, and
while they do those who are not any
too well   informed   are   Inclined   to
cast the responsibility on those handling departments for public safety. It
is hardy probable that tbis   ls   the
cause of the outbreak ifc Cranbrook
at this time, and lt may more properly be applied to tbe present unsettled
condition of Industrial life, following
the period of inflated prosperity, wheu
those who have been accustomed recently to "easy come" now find lt a
trifle more difficult to satisfy all their
extravagant desires and consequently
resort to criminal methods to carry
on.   This practice should he stopped
and without any hesitation. Our criminal code gives authority to deal with
those who make war   upon   society,
and if Cranbrook would heed experience gained in this city, which also
on occasion has been Inflicted with
these outbreaks, It will learn tbat the
application of meting out    exacting
punishment for the breach committed ls a wonderful deterrent for the
continuation of lawlessness.
CONSOLIDATED DEFERS
ACTION ON DIVIDEND
MONTREAL.—Directors ot the Con
solidated Mining & Smelting Company
Ltd., at their regular quarterly meeting held last week, decided to deter
action on the dividend for the last
quarter of 1920, which terminates the
fiscal year of the enterprise, until the
inventories are taken and valued at
the end of the period.
From an operating standpoint the
rear's results, it was said, have been
the most successful in the company's
history.
VETERANS DISAPPROVE
S.S.B. REGULATIONS
That the regulations of the Soldier
Settlement Board at Ottawa prohibiting from coming under the act mixed
fanning propositions of less than 20
acres cleared land will be detrimental
to settlement in British Columbia, la
the opinion expressed by several soldier applicants for land.
It Is claimed by these' men that
there have been several successful
ventures In mixed farming where the
settler had only five acres of land
and devoted part of hia time to sidelines, such as raising small fruits and
keeping cows. It is also claimed that
greater progress la made by the settler it a large tract of land Is purchased, ot which only about 10 acres
Is cleared. In this instance the farmer progresses by clearing operations.
BALFOUR SANITARIUM
NOW FINALLY CLOSED
With the departure of the staff last
week, the Balfour Tubercular Sana-
tarium for ex-soldiers, Is finally closed down. The British Columbia patients are at Tranqullle', and the Alberta patients at Bowness. The structure, built by tbe Canadian Pacific
Railway, as a tourist hotel and known
as Kootenay House, was leased hy
the federal government during the
war.
Some Uttle friction arose ln regard
to closing this institution a short
time ago, the soldier patients objecting when the order transferring some
of them to Tranqullle was issued. The
department bas now seemingly been
able to adjust matters amicably, and
still gain their end.

EX-KAISCK KEEPS

DOORN, Holland- Revelations m
the Prussian state legislature at Berlin of the BUiAs of money which the
former (J.erman amperir has been permitted to draw from Germany during
Uie past two years, together with the
announcement that the Dutch govern
ment will tax him Cur uu annual In
come of 1,300,000 guilders, have
caused the burgers of Doom to speculate as to what he does with all hi;
money. (Nominally a guilder is* worll
40 cents.j
From Germany, the former emperor is said to have drawn 1,000,000
guilders, equivalent at present rates
of exchange to 11,138,000 German
marks, also tho proceeds of the sale
of somo of his property in the WI1-
helmstrasse, of 40.000,000 marks.
Besides all this incomo the Prussian
government has contributed additionally to thu furnishing uf iiis new
house at Doom.
For a long time William complained of being financially embaraosed,
Now, however, according to lite
peoipio of Doom, he appears to be
living In high style.
Not counting his marshall, General von Gontard, and other members
om his immediate suite, approximately 60 servants are now employed to
keep up the house at Doom. This
not Include tho workmen who
are still engaged iu various repairs
about the ho uso and grounds.
There aro 24 charwomen, who are
keurt busy polishing the floors, brass-
work, and otherwise keeping tlto
castle up to tho standard of old German cleanliness demanded hy tho
former Empross Augusta Victoria.
They receive the equivalent of about
a dollar a day. Tea of them live lu
the castle.
In all, William now employs six
cooks, who include a chef and an
assistant living at the ensile and four
women who come in to work by tlie
day. Thero uro also a number of
gardeners and personal servants.
To maintain this army of servants
whoso averages wages tlie peoplo of
Doom say, must ho something more
than a dollar a day, William pays In
wages alone about $20,000 a year.
Their upkeep costs blm as much
moro and this docs uot include the
high salaried employes, like General
von Gontard, Captain von Illseman,
the "court physician" and secretaries,
who must cost the ex-emperor about
120,000 more.

Fort William, Pontlac County, Province of Quebec, la a lovely spot
aloug Uie Ottawa river, and yet 'I Is
Hot so well known as it should bo.
On ono side of the Ottawa river
ss Petewawa training camp, and Just
acroua the water Port William lies
by the eide of a forest uf magnificent
pine trees. Since the war Port William has become better knuwu, for
thousands of Canadian soldiers who
prepared for fighting at Peiewawa
were there, and they did not forget
to tell their friends of its loveliness
and tho happy hours they spent
around lt
You may reach Fort William, Quebec, by a variety of ways: You may
get off the C.P.H. train on tho main
line at Petewawa railway station,
then go for two raiks across Petewawa Camp grounds to Petewawa
village. At the village you may take
a boat to the opposite side of tho
river and you are in Fort William
Or you may go to Fort William,
Quebec, from Pembroke, Ontario, hy
a more direct route. Thc Pembroke
Transportation Company run." tbe
SS. Olscau from Pembroke to Des
Joachims at regular intervals, a distance of about 20 miles, calling at
Petewawa village, Fort William and
other points. Thc fare for tbis trip
ls small, and the trip Itself is most
enjoyable, the scenery being beautiful, and on a hot summer day tlie
breezes blowing along tbe wide lake-
like Ottawa river arc refreshing as
aea winds.
It would indeed be difficult to find
a prettier spot than Fort William,
Quebec, The place looks like an inland
seaside, for here there is a beach
miles in length, and sandy as. a sea
atrand. The crystal waters of the
Ottawa river gently lave the golden
fringes of their bed. In summertime
children play ln the sand and dig
holes just as they do at St, Andrews-
by-the-Sea. Age aud youth walk together by many flowery paths. The
bathing beach Is safe, shallow st the
ahore, but you can go out Into any
depth you wish, for tbe Ottawi haa
a deep heart ^
The river is dotted with islands.
Motor boats, rowing boats and canoes ply Its waters. Sometimes you
may Bee a barge tugging a floating
mass or logs to some distant mill.
The Hotel Pontlac, owned by tho
genial Chris. McCool, is the soul of
Fort William. The hotel stands
beneath towering pines; ln front ls
the golden strand, then tbe river, and
beyond the river the gentle Petewawa bills, which often resound to
the firing of tbe hlg guns used by
the soldiers training tn the open
country. There is a most distinct
echo in thia district. If you laugh or
talk in a loud voice the hills will
aurely laugh and talk back to you.
From the Hotel Pontlac shady
walks radiate in many directions.
It ls a nice walk from tbe hotel to
the Beaver Dam. In the fruit season
you may gather thousands of blueberries and wild raspborrlos on the
*ay.

Many logs that escape from the lumbermen find a resting place at the
river side and make comfortable natural seats for the tourists.
Fort William, Quebec, is a romantic spot. It La thc Ideal place for
those who are newly wed, or for
those who are wooing. Everythlnc

logs on the beach may have been
east there by nature so as to afford
seats on which lovers may rest while
telling their talcs. Squirrels an-l

Fort William, too, ls a place endeared by sweet memories. Thousands of soldiem who trod its path.;

There are frequent steamer excursions from Pembroke to Des Joachims and return. The steamer always takes !-ome of the Fort William

amongst thc Indians and local peoplo.
Tho Rock Is -100 feet high. Beneath

British Columbia Is promised an excess of population as soon as the
"bone dry" law goes Into effect In
the prairie provinces. AU the rumrunners and automobile thieves who
have been operating along the border
from the Great Lukes to the Rocky
Mountains are then going to move to
the Coast. They expect to be able to
do business here without difficulty.
They rest their hopes in this respect
upon the fact that British Columbia,
while it may sell liquor under government control, will have no power
to prevent the Importation ot liquor
For .personal use. In practice, this
will mean that citizens buying for
themselves will obtain their supjtlios
from the government stores, while cl
tlzena engaged in smuggling boose
across the border Into the United
States will bring the stuff by the car
toad from Eastern Canada.
During the recent campaign a re-
forence to this prospective situation
was made by Premier Oliver, who
proposed to deal with It by asking the
Dominion authorities to forbid liquor
being brought Into this .province ex
cept on government account. A special act of the federal parliament would
be necessary for this purpose, but
such an act mlg-Iit perhaps be' granted

won. It had much to do, as some authorities believe, with his subsequent

His successor, the tenth earl, waB

to penetrate the hull of the wreck

One or two Isolated attempts at
recovering the gold hare been made
since the death of the first duke. The
last Duke of Argyll, who was Governor-General of Canada from 1878 to
1883, and died In 1914, was deeply Interested In tbe matter. In 1883, however, an accident which nearly resulted ln the death of the diver so

speaker, a crowd is assured him.
It is the golden opportunity of the
silvery tongued orator. From present
indications the platform will come to
its own in the next campaign as it
has not done during the last forty
years. The Farmers and the Laborites
seem to 'be developing the must speak*
ers. Insofar as the Farmers are
concerned, their political clubs and
co-operative asociations are bringing
along a large number of persons who
can think as well as speak un their
feet. The Labor men aro also doing
good work in this respect. In their
conferences with employers they now
seem to make a better presentation of
tho case. Talk as tbo cynics may,
but Democracy Is abroad la the land
today. I
The prairie provinces will make an
other effort to induce Parliament to
transfer to them the natural resources within their boundaries. To obtain
If possible a settlement of this matter
through negotiation is desirable; but
lt does look as though thero is little
present prospect of such resulting
through this method. Indeed, the
shortest cut to a settlement seems to
be by means of a test case carried to
the Privy Council. Manitoba and Alberta appear to be ready to take thin
course, but apparently Saskatchewan
Is not. It may be that the Saskatchewan government, recalling its strenuous opposition to Haul tain's proposals ln this regard, thus dislikes to
come to it. But if tbe possession of
these resources is really worth having, the sooner lt Is secured the better.
One can quite understand Alberta's
eagerness In this respect, for it undoubtedly has' everything to gain by
an early settlement. As coal mining
increases so will the revenue from
coal royalties increase. Then again
line oil resources of the province will
be valuable beyond question. The
proven value of the mineral resources
of northern Manitoba doubtless makes
the Norris (government desirous to
bring them under its control.
If the provinces through a decision
from the highest court In the empire,
the Privy Council, can establish their
claim to these resources, they will
have gone three-fourths of the Journey In the direction of getting them.
On the other hand if their claim Is
not thus established they must take
whatever Parliament deems wise to
give them; and the- more the other
provinces .press their claims, the less
inclination will Parliament manifest
to take action. Members of Parliament never tackle thorny problems
until they have to do so. As for compelling Parliament to act, what can
forty-three members in a house of 231
do?
As intimated In his'., week's article,
t'-e entrance of Mr. Gauthier, or at
j least the a/inojiccj entrance, of t*iip

rock ail right Ther* are freshmen t$

and both manifest the same characteristics. In hatching political eggs lt
Is a mistake to crow until the chick
breaks the shell, thia being especially
true when an attempt Is being made
to bring forth a Tory chicken out of
Orlt shell. The chick should first
break the shell before one attempts
to break the news.
The Quebec situation seems to be
developing, but for tbe government
progress is slow owing to tbe fact that
large portion of tbe Conservative
element in that province seems to be
more Inclined to follow "Bob" Kogers
and his faction. Thla may be due to
the fact that the latter are considered
the more orthodox. A remnant of
these old Blues never followed Laurier even when his star was most In,

ture of their .party loyalty makes It
difficult for them to take old-time
Liberals to tlieir bosoms.
That there ls an element among the
old-time Conservatives of Ontario who
prefer to see the old party revived is
well known ami tlieir headquarters
aro in Toronto. Now along comes
Burnham ln Feterboro saying that he
ls a candidate, not of the government,
but of the simon-pure Conservatives.
If he adheres to this he certainly will
cause a bad mix-up, for the government must nominate a. candidate.
Burnham undoubtedly has a large following ln the riding- he Is fearless,
even though at times he seems to he
rather rash. Altogether he" is one of
tliose first class fighting men, -who
must be reckoned with.
Next to the return of the Oliver gor-
ernment ln British Columbia, possibly
the most notable feature of the elections ln that province Is the fact that
the Farmers djd not elect a single
candidate. They are organized out
there, but as they apparently feel that
they have to hedge on certain matters,
especially on the tariff, they havo not
commanded thut measure of support
falling to those who know what they
want, want 11 badly and can convince
the public that they bare -0 good
chance of getting what they are after.
B.C., Quebec and Prince Edward Island are the only provinces without
Farmer representatives tn their legislatures. It ls also to be noted that
the soldier candidates did not make
nearly as good a showing as bad been
•xpect-d Jn British Columbia. The defeat of soldier candidates throughout
tlie Dominion, some of them of undoubted capacity, Is one of the rather
strange features of Canadian politics.
Most people thought two years ago
that an officer with t good war tt
cord would make the strangest possible kind of candidate.

The New OVERLAND Light Four
Tbe adrantrte.es of thc artificial
raising of the fox, beaver, and musk-
rat, specifically, bave been often
pointed out, anrl here It Is proponed
to devote a few words to that much
abused animal, the skunk. The fact
that the animal ls to be found in
practically every part of the American continent, and that the pelt has
sold as high as ten dollars, Is hh.I1-
fienl to atlract tbe attention of fur
farmers aud Induco a study into the
feasibility aad advantages of the Industry.
Many years ago Ernest Thompson
Seton, the well ki.own nadir* writer
and naturalist to tlie Manitoba Government, advocaied a more cxl'-n-
slve artificial propagation ot (be
skunk, and himself operated a tnosl
successful ranch of this kind. Because, largely of a prejudice at.ain.st
tbe little animal and Its method of
defease, skunk farming has never
beon firmly established In Canada as
an Industry although tbe advantages
and possibilities are obviously so
great. Success on other parts of the
American continent and elsewhere
bave demonstrated tbe feasibility of
establishing the Industry firmly and
profitably In tbe Dominion.
The Bkunk fs widely found over the
Canadian Dominion In every comer,
and nook where it can find fond
suited to Its neods, and notwithstanding the fact that It Is persistently hunted, trapped and worried
by doffs, It continues to thrive end
multiply In close proximity to set-
llemeAu.   Tha   animal   ls   neither

timid nor vicious nnd Is practically
omnivorous, devouring large quan-
(Mies of insects Including grasshoppers, crickets, beetles and caterpillars. In captivity. Its feeding Is
very economical, the diet consisting
of meal, fish, cookfid cereals, vegetables and milk. The food problem
Is most oaisily solved where the ranch
is established within reach of a
hotel. Tbe contents of tbe dally
garbage can well feed a considerable
number.
The skunk multiplies rapidly with
litters of from six to twelve, the
period of gestation being eight
weeks. Dcscentlng may be performed when the animals are five weeks
old and all possibility of future
nuisance may be eliminated, bot In
domestic raising this tr not really
necessary contrary to general belief,
ns tbe animals become remarkably
lame and frleudly with those hand*
ling them and never brine Into play
tbe powerful weapon nature has
given them except when ba<"y
frightened- by some Intruder.
Skunk ranching could be succras*
fully carried en ln practically every
section of Canada for the nnima'. is
indigenous to erery part and would
find his natural conditions wherever
a farm wai located. In wire an-
cloeed pens of suitable land the
animals will make their own burrows aad dens and need little attention beyond feeding. Tbe demand
for pelts la steady and general, and
the high prices prerailiaa* during He
paat few years make skunk ranches
very profitable concern* and augur
a successful future far any 4»*velep-
uent along thane lines.
The Herald, Only $2.00 Per Year
ante until twelve yeara ago, when a
yacht's anchor brought up a gun from
the ancient galleon. The Glasgow
Salvage Association straightway obtained a lease from the Duke of Ar
gyll and began operations. In 1909
Colonel Foss returned from Ceylon,
where he had charge of Lord ltoths-
child's pearl fisheries, and took over
the lease. He spent two years and a
half trying to locate the etact position of the wreck, which had sunk
in soft clay, leaving no trace above
the bottom of the bay. In 1912 he
was successful and hard at work
when the outbreak of the war caused
a suspension of operations. He began
them again after the signing of the
armistice.
Colonel Foss brought with him to
New York fragments of the galleons
timbers. Their snbmeralon ln the
clay of. Tobermorey baa protected
them from the borers. They are of
oak and as Bound as the day they
were cut. He believes, he lays, It
will be possible to raise th* entire
ship by degrees.
Twenty feet of mud hay* already
been removed from the wreck. There
la still a three-foot layer over the
poop where the gold ls resting.
The Almlrante carried a crew of 860
men and fifty-six guns. Rich silver
.plate which has been taken from her
gives an Inkling of the expensive
character of ber fittings. Colonel
Foss bas already spent 116,000 out of
his own pocet ln tbe treasure bunt
and figures that It will require from

SHARKS FEAST ON
PARBOILED BEEF
According to .'unlulii Briggs, of tho
ship St. Charles, which arrived at au
Atlantic port recently from Havana,
tho sharks In thc Cuban harbor had
rather a pleasure cliango from tlioir
usual menu of seiiwneil, lesser fish
and rash black divers. Tlie captain
In telllnig the story, said:
"The St. Charles loft Honduras n
«l>aii ago with 620 head of cattle,
bound for Havana. Two days out and
a ty,i>lioon or a simoon, or mobhe
twas Just a plain storm delayed her,
and first thing you knew thero wasn't
so much as a single out loft aboard
for the 620 cattle. Not enough straw
was there left to furnish one lemonade glass. The water also give out,
it did, and there wasn't any left to
speak of.
"mat did thc cattle go and do?
Well, what could they do? Sakes alive, man, use yer head. They ups and
dies, five hundred on 'em. Obstinate
critters wouldn't live Just because
they was deprived momentarily of
their yittals. Then the boat pulled
Into Havana.
"What you got aboard?" said the
cuban collectors, talkln' in Cuban.
"Well t'tell the truth, mate, lt ain't
no cargo o' geraniums," said the skipper.
"Then the Cubans came aboard and
found out the horrid truth.
"Caramba!" they hollers, "ffet ont
o' our harbor."
"So out to sea we goes," resumed
the Captain, "and holds six hundred
cow and bull funerals. This here's
the peculiar funny part of It. No soon
er does we flip these 600 late cattle
overboard than all the sharks Inside
of a hundred miles comes atearln'
through the water. The water, y'Bee,
was pretty hot, and almost the minute the cows hit it they wus sort o'
par-boiled.
"Well, sonny, bow them sharks
acted: Such table manners! They
must o' been from the lower classes
of sharks, I really thought that they
would a' chewed off our rudder. But
they for certain was cute when they
hung around the ship beggln' for dessert.
"Hundred and hundreds of sharks
there were." said the captain, -ana.
by gosh, how they did follow, that
ahlji arter they got a taste of that
there roast beef medium! They almost climbed up the side o' the ship.
just beggln' for mart beef. They lay
over on their back kind a cute like
and show their pretty white tooth,
and It was so affectln' that I had all
I could do to keep the crew from
Jumpln' in to them, beenz they hated
to see the little tykes disappointed."
Notification of a chaiigo in the policy of the Soldier Settlement Board
regarding the 16-mlle limit has been |
received from the department aC Ottawa and will be of great interest to returned soldiers who want to become
settlers on the land undor the settlement act. Previous to this soldiers
were only esablished on land within a
radius of 16 miles from a railway, but
this has now heen extended to 251
mileB in specially approved and accepted districts.
If these districts aro well established ami organized wltll rural schools
anil good roads, and situated beyond
15 miles from transportation, the
board will approve of tho purchase of
land In theso districts hy soldier sot-
tiers and advancos will bo grantel for
land ptirchusus. Romoval of encumbrances, stock nml oiinipmcnt or permanent Improvement loans will be approved as on lands within the lti-mlle
limit.
Advances Will be Made
The aottlers In purchasing the land
must bo prepared to pay 20 per cent,
ot tho purchase .price and advances
may be made providing a settler has
been ln residence a full year and has
personally done breaking, fencing
and other permanent lnprovements.
Special lands, such as Dominion
lunds, may he approved by the central
board at Ottawa, which are considered desirable for soldier settlement
beyond 25 miles from a railroad, andj
