Tin- annual general meeting of the
Cranbrook Imowl ot trade, for one
reason or another, did not bring together as huge and repieseiituliv
gathering ul business men on Tuesday
evening, as usual However, ihere
wus a fairly good attendance ami    a
lol of Important business was discussal. Tin* lirsi item of Importance
was the treasurer's report, after
whicli retiring President It. T. Brymncr gave his annual address, as follows:
"Thc year 1011 which lias just
closed hus been one whieli has marked
a considerable forward step in the
history of Cranbrook, and while conditions both on tlw prairie and in
the coal dlrtricl to the east of us
mitigated againsl it I think wc can
safely say that the general trend
in all lines of business has been in
the way of progress. The new era
of a brick city has been well inaugurated and the specimens ot architecture which have made their appearance during the year have been
not only a great credit to thc citizens who are responsible lor their
being, but they are also the strongest kind of recommendation to
strangers that our city is here permanently.
The great progress made in the
early part of Uie Installment of the
sewerage system is also a matter of
gratification and we hope thut the
present year will see tlw completion
of this most Important work.
"I do not wish to take too much
I your time by enlarging on what
has happened in the city and tlistriet during the year but would like
t< call your attention lo n few of the
matters which have been brought up
for discussion ai ■ our meetings ami
received the best consideration we
were able to give to them.
"In the early part of the year we
corked on a plan by wbieh we
-ndoavored lo tjp\ a different subject
lor speeial discussion at each niomh
ly meeting. However, after the first
or two meetings wc found that,
this did not work out as satlsfactor-
ly as we hat! hoped, and therefore
the plan was dropped   wiih     the ex-
•ption id the Annual Roads Meeting,
which     was held in tlw fall.
"On t he 38nd March a .special
meeting *>f thc board was held tor the
purpose of receiving ami considering a
report on the sewerage bylaw. This
was ;, very well attended meeting
and the discussion in connection with
this import ant matter was taken
part in by a good number. The

"On the _uth July the hoard arranged nu excursion to the St.
Mary's Prairie with the object in
view of letting as many ot our own
people see for themselves thai we
ure in tlw middle of a farming district of tlw first order. About two
hundred took advantage of this excursion aud there is no doubt that
the eyes of many were opened to the
work which is being done m that
part nf our district. The hoard Is
greatly indebted to the Cranbrook
Automobile association and   to   the
officials nl the C.P.H. for their
si stance in carrying out this excursion. Wo are also greatly indebted
to Mr. Otis Staples tor allowing the
excursion to lw run on his private
logging railway as lar as Tisdale's

Mr. Nicol of the Lethbridge hoard ot

taken up by our board immediately
for the coming year is lhe preparation of mi exhibit (or the Crunbrook

"The subject of a city public park

they reported nu several possible

still under consideration.
The nurl iug iu December was
specially lor the purpose of recommending new roads for the tlistriet
wbieh recommendations were forwarded to the department of public
works at Victoria. Some very good
suggestions were made ami Uie question of roads was discussed very
thoroughly at this meeting as far
as it is possible to do so from an
armchair point of view. I would
like to suggest that at next year's
discussion on this important point
that those who are directly Interested in the roads should come forward and -.(ive their views. The
board is trying lo work in the best
interests of   the community in    this
in all matters, but their bands are
7 much tied if the parties who arc
directly interested do not give them
the benefit of their suggestions and
On the 30th January the final
meeting of the year was held and
the most, important business wbieh
was brought forward was in regard
to the govcrnmeni ownership of telephones. This board endorsed Uw
resolutions passed by other boards of
trade in the province and forwarded
their resolutions to lho proper offi-
iats at Victoria.
'Steps have also been taken to
ask tbe government for the establishment of a luml registry ollice
Craubrook. A deputation walled on
the cabinet iu Victoria and the C
strvative association were also asked
io send representations through tin
proper channels with this end in view
In closing t hese few remarks I
would like to impress upon the members that if tbere is not a gi oil
attendance of the meet ings of the
board their work is very much handicapped and I would like to ask all
those who have the interests ol the
town at heart to make a special
point        to attend as many moot Id
possible and try to Influence others to do so.
"I have great pleasure in thanking
the executive committee and the secretary for the way they have worked
In tlw interests ol the hoard during
the year and also in closing this, my

hope that you will now appoint «t

while it has been a great pleasure
to mc to 011 this important post

Before proceeding to the election ol
officers for the ensuing year, a hearty
vote ot thanks was unanimously tendered the president and other retiring

On motion of II. Darling it was
resolved thai the secretary should be
instructed to provide the city council
with a statement of the manner iu
which the city's grant ol $500 was
disposed of.
I. Manning, with a view to facilitating publicity work, suggested that
the secretary should he authorized to
have typewritten copies made i f ull
enquiries received by him from Intending sel tiers or purchasers ol city
real estate, same to be distributed
among local real estate agents. A
resolution to this effect was adopted.
J. P. Fink brought up the question
of the Dry Facming Congress at
Lethbridge and impressed upon the
in ard the urgency of taking early
steps to secure a thoroughly representative exhibit from this district.
hi this connection, afler some discussion, 11. K. Beattie moved, and
J. P. Fink seconded the following resolution:
"That thc officers ol the hoard of
trade prepare a report covering, as
fully as possible, the cost, scope,
etc., of a thoroughly representative
exhibit, and make report at lhe next
regular meeting. Carried unanimously.
During the evening, Mr II. Darling
raised tbe question of tbe advisability of the board of trade securing the service** of a competent
publicity agent to further the work
of properly advertising lhe resources
ami potentialities of Cranhrook dislrict. Whilst no definite action was
taken, the matter was favorably considered mid some action along this
line may     lw taken at an early date.

W. li. M. May, puhlic school inspector, was a visitor in town ami
around tho district this week, Mr.
May, In talking with a Herald representative, expressed the utmost satisfaction with the local teaching
stgfl. He intimated that lu lus
opinion Cranbrook bad every reason
to feel proud of its staff of public
school teachers. lu ihi** connection
Mr. May remarked that teachers'
salaries were steadily advancing
throughout lhe province and that if
Cranhrook desired to retain the ser-|
vices of its present excellent stall it
would probably Imve lo meet Uie
competition of other cltlea and meet
un advance iu pay. Speaking of the
proposed new manual training school
Mr. May expressed pleasure lo learn
that Cranbrook contemplated thls|
innovation. Cranbrook     already
ranks high as an educational cvntci
and with the added convenience ol a
manual training school its reputation
as a modern educational center will
In* materially enhanced.
Speaking in regard to his visit     to

You know that the C. P. R bought a thousand acres for
their terminals from or through the Coquitlam Terminal Co.
Your common sense will tell you that although Coquitlam will in all probability have a population of 30,000 in a
few years, this centrally located properly will be the first to
increase in value, and will make the most money for its
owners Take the city of Vancouver, for instance; its original

he can leave those facts out of consideration. If the railway officers

their efforts on building terminals,

Amid all lhe pomp and dignity
which attends such a ceremony tho
freedom of tlw City of London, contained in a magnificent golden casket, was recently at tbe Mansion
House, presented lo Karl Grey,
governor-general of Canada.
A distinguished -;atberlng Included,
among others, the Countess Grey
Lady Sybil Crey, the Duke and
Huchess of Abercorn, Lady Minto,
Lord Roberts, Lord Stratheona, Viscount Milner, Viscount peel, Mr. Al-
freh Lyttcllon, M.P., und Admiral
Sir Archibald Douglas. The ffiests
were received on the dais by the
lord mayor ami lady mayoress.
After Karl Orey had accepted the
freedom, sir Joseph Dlmsdale, Uw
city chamberlain, addressed the gath-
erlng, and paid a high tribute to the
work of the late governor-general as
administrator, statesman, ami diplomatist. Karl Grey was in tin:
unique position of lieing tbe third
member of bis family to be the
cipieril of the honorary frcedon.
Bad Grey, in his reply, spoke of
the spirit of loyalty and patriotism
which imbued the people of the
Western Dominion* It was his firm
conviction, borne in upon bim by his
happy experience of seven years' intimate relationship with the Canadian people, that all patties in Canada were equally loyal to the empire
ami iti the crown.
Tbe problem of combining unimpaired enjoyment of autonomous
rights by each Bclt-gor-. ilpg portion
of the empire in its own political affairs with the di.'/ i.t faring in "nc
privileges of taking part in ail mailers common to the whole, still remained to be solved. The solution
was. perhaps, the highest of all
duties that lay before the present
and rising generations of statesmen
throughout the Hritish empire, but
Uu* task could not be undertaken too
If it were true that the 1'nited
Kingdom could nnt hope for ever to
play alone her present part as a
peacemaker ami a maker of righteousness throughout the world, it was
equally true that Canada, or any
other dominion, could not hope to
develop the strength of her free
ami aspiring nationality except under
th.* sheltering protection of the Hritish llag.
Canada was one day destined to he
the controlling power of the empire
of which slie wns part. The day
was approaching when Canadians
would Iv allowed, as self-governing
subjects of the crown, to assume
Uie full status (lf partners in the responsibilities and obligotions as well
as   in     the   privileges ol the empire.
Tbe belief that existed throughout
Uw whole of Canada that mt ol>-
stoclc would in* offered by the peoples
of tho I nited Kingdom to tin* assumption by Canada of lur (air share
of the imperial privilege, ns soon as
she was ready to tlaim thc lull responsibilities ol hei Imperial man-
liood, had already attracted Iter loyalty to the crown mid to the Hrilish
connections with roots loo deep ever
to be removed OXeept by such folly as
one could not imagine io be possible

Mr. Hatton has been iu thu* service of

which is very popular, is no sur-

Mr. Hatton was horn in London,

An Alaskan basking in the pleasant
haze ol mid-summer with a background of high green mountains uud a
foreground consisting of a lovely valley and n placidly (lowing river is
tfia setting lor a play ol tlw Fat
North appearing at the Auditorium
Monday, February 19th. The play is
"Tin* Harrier," uml its treatment is
jusl as different from that oi others
of ,i similar melodramatic nature us
is thc .setting different from the
usual ice and snow scenes that have
been the fashion for footlight reproductions of doings just this side
11     the Arctic Circle,
The play tells the story ol a young
army officer who, in bringing the law
to a region where the tix shooter
had previously ruled supreme, finds at
Ih.* lonely frontier camp a lovely wild
flower in the person ol Nccia, supposed daughter of dale, a s*a,uaw-
nian. The officer nt once falls In
love, not knowing hut that Necla is
tlu* daughter <f Gale, hut still be-
.icvine that she is the offspring of a
marriage in civilization before Gnle
became a squaw man.
When lu learns from his sweet-heart
thai she is a half lined his ardor
cools. There arc a number of in-
tcrest ing moments thereafter, and
more iht cresting situations. The
young officer decides to chuck liis i
career and many the girl, anyway.
Of course, the last curtain, doesn't
drop until it has been discovered that
Necla is not tainted with Indian
blood, hut is the daughter of tbe
villian, who dies without acquainting
her with lhe fact.
The [day is splendidly noted, Lee
Millar, in the role ol a hent, is especially gifted. He is one ot those
heroes who do not cloy. He is too
natural to heroine bombastic Nona!
MacGrcgor plays a strong part as
the squawman being hunted hy the
law for a murder he did not corn-
mil, Ilryce llowatson, nn Shirk
the "vill-yun," and George Byron,
a* "Runuion," also presented their
delineations in a way that. made
tIniii favorites. Eleanor Haher just
fits tin* part of Nccia. A fine hit of
silciii noting is that of Mat lie Hyde
when everybody is giving tho poor
Indian lhe worst ot it. Sho listens as first one nnd then another

There was excitement galore in police court this morning, Bays Mon

Palton, hail in-; from Cranbrook, appeared on a forgery charge. Pat-
Ion's record was tu the hands ot the
police, and in spite of the tearful
protestations nf ihe "Crying Kit!"
Pat ton is known through the Pa:
Ire was given thirty days. He hud
previously done siv months for steal
ins an automobile in Craubrook
However, all the excitement tool-
place when Pat ton was brought i
after court had adjourned. Constabl
Breed was waiting tor the warrant
for Pat ton's committment to the
barracks. When the prisoner heard
d his fate, he broke down crying
anain, It wns a good blind, for in a
moment, when he was left unguarded,
be broke and ran. As he ran, tbc
peetators were treated to a show
which would put the characteristic
ing picture comedy to shame.
Over the tracks with three or four
lilt-tubers of the police force after
him, he went, taking refuge under a
box car. The COPS kept up the chase
with merry glee, and with an auili-
if about five hundred on the
spot, Palton was re-arrested by Con-
lable Freed. He was brought hack
o the poller station, Magistrate Hall
tent for, and another thirty days
lacked on his sentence for breaking

The members ol tlu* party are
bending their efforts to secure legislation reversing the Oshorno judgment,
that trades unions ct uld not dovoto
part of their funds to the support of
the labor party. It has been suggested that the party should make
tin* support of this measure tho prlco
of their support nf homo rule; that
nn alliance should be formed between
flu* lahorllcs and nationalists looking
in tbe passage ot a homo rule bill.
On llie extension of the franohlso

As tlte miners form nearly half the

half its membership is against it.
Tin* iii-dust rial unrest of last year
resulted in great numbers of workers
ling trade unions and socialist
bodies; therefore the satisfaction of
the leaders with strikes, every one of
which they say means more
strength for the parly.
Further impetus was given to tho
movement by the success of Hi* socialists in Germany, whom the Englishmen now hope to emulate. The
propagandist^ are busy in the

Still labor, or ut least tbe Inilc-

Mi Turner said lho party bad nol

In the last few years the IftlwrltOS

Ottawa, Feb. ll.-When Hon. W. T.
Whlto makes his budget speech in the
commons next month, he will have i
record surplus of probably over $30,-
000,000 to announce.
Phis   harvest,     however,   is,       ol
mrse, the result ol Hon. \V. S.
Fielding's sowing, and the credit
must go to the lute government.
Tin* budget figures for tbe first ten
mon I lis ending witli .lauuary 8Ut
e issued hy the finance department last week. Up to the end nl
the month the total revenue was
$100,680,088, an increase ol
$11,750,231 over the corresponding
period tf 1010-11. The revenue for
February and March promises to
give Ihe same rates of Increase, and
for the full year tlte revenue should
ilmiv an increase of about $18,000,-
000, thus bringing the total revenue
up lo approviinutfly $180,000,000 as
compared with $117,781,000 for lasl
year. Expenditure on consolidated
[uml account for tbc ten months has
totalled $70,056,588, an Increase nf a
little over $5,000,000. For the lull
year the expenditures on revenue account will probably show nu Increase of from $7,000,000 to
$N.iioi.,non over last year, bringing
the total up to about $95,000,000, as
compared wiib $h*,77I,ooo for the
preceding year. The surplus of revenue over all ordinary expenditure
should then-lore he ulmut $81,000,-
ooo, as compared with $30,000,000, as
Compared  with $20,non,000 last  year.
On capital account the expenditure
lor tbe ten months bas been $21,-
621,07:1, or a little over 1,000,-
000 less than for the corresponding
period of 1010-11. Indications are
that the surplus ol revenue over
consolidated luml expenditure will
practically meet every Item of expenditure on capital account, including $35,000,000 spent on the National
Transcontinental       railway. For
January  the    revenue totalled, $10,-
081,035,    on     Increase   of neatly $1,"

for years with bleeding piles. The
pain was so had at times that 1

me any ease. Finally 1 decided in

Fnr a tlmo I was certainly bet ter,

shooting, burning, stinging pains, the
dull, aching and wretched, 'worn-out'
feeling that the disease causes continued as    hail as ever.
"One day 1 read uhnul Zam-lluk
uud thought I would try It. The
Iirsl one or two boxes gave me more
case than anything else I had tried,
so I went on wilb the treatment. In
a short time I began to feel alto-

that Zam-Bllk wns going tn cure me.
Well, I went ou using it, ami by the
