freight demands.
EVIDENCE IS CONCLUSIVE
, Mottling could indicate lhe ever-
increasing prosperity ol lhe country
hetter than the carrying capacity of
the great transportation lines being
taxed beyond their powers. Even at
this very hour there is a demand for
better methods of moiling the commerce of the country Irom the interior to the seaboard, all ol which
goes lu prove lhat Canada has nol
yet reached tiie summit of tiie great-
wave of prosperity which1 arrived
coincident with tlie assumption of ollice by the Liberal government.
STEADY GROWTH IN TOTAL
TRADE
The returns fur April show Hint
Canada's total trade for the month
Iras increased $1,123,771 over the
same mouth of last year. The lig-
inicfl are $37,779,170. The imports
the same month last year increased by $4,028,226 showing the
greater purchasing power of the
Dominion. 'I'he duty collected during
lhe month of April was $1,330,1118,
an increase for tin* month uvrr the
ante peril nl last year of $479,153.
Hit AND THINK PACIFIC CONSTRUCTION
Great progress is being made with
the construction of this national
transcontinental line. Roundhouse,
and shops are now under way at
Portage la Prairie. About three
hundred men are employed in excavating, grading and hauling material
for the work. An emergency repair
shop of large dimensions, built of
luui ami stone will be completed
this summer.
GRADING ALREADY DONE
Goading lias been done westerly
Imm Portage la Prairie for a distance of eighteen miles. Track has
heady been hud through the clly
Three Grand Trunk Pacillc engines
ngaged iu the active business of
hauling material for the work at the
front. The contractors expect to
commence work shortly on the section between Portage In Prairie aud
Winnipeg. It is confidently expected
lhat before the snow falls again
grading will he completed betweon
Ihese two points.
INVESTIGATION OF PUBLIC ACCOUNTS
It may not he generally known
that i-liere is in force a most elaborate system of investigating the public accounts of the Dominion. This
is done through the medium of whut
is known as the public accounts committee. Upon this committee are
both Liberals and Conservatives, and
witnesses desired by both parlies
may lie summoned at the expense of
the crown to give evidence.
PUBLIC DOCUMENTS PRODUCED
Any public documents from any of
lhe departments required for" ihet
purposes of the committee may he
sent for and they are promptly produced. Copies of the flies of any
public mattes will likewise be prepared upon application Tor the use of
the committee, and any member of,
committee has free access to them.
IMMENSE SUMS AUDITED j
Alt-hough the matters inquired into!
have passed the -.mutiny of Hie Audi-!
tor General, this committee conducts j
duly made. Taking •>. long list ol
supplies, there wen- always n lew
articles Ilia I might have heen bought
uiieaper, hul .is a rule lite bills were
such as would be paid by a private
I ird 1 vidua I for the same
Considering the many transactions
enquired into in tiie public account
committee, and the few transactions
that were carried to the house for
discussion, there can be
conclusion arrived at, and'that is
thai public affairs are being well administered, when the great sums Involved iu annual public expenditures
are considered,
At DITOK-GENEIUL'S REPORT
Every session there is submitted lo
parliament a report in several volumes hy the Auditor-General, showing iu detail every cent of expenditure
iu the public service fur the year.
These sums arc audited and paid by
ibis official niter being audited and
checked hy officials uf lhe respective
departments. Having run Uie
gauntlet of such scrutiny, it is almost Impossible for theft, graft or
any kind of wrong-doing tu pass undetected.
METHOD OF   VOTING MONEY
Every dollar ol money spent by
tiie various departments uf ihe governmenl is vol iil hy the bouse, after
the minister lias explained the put-
poses for which the money is required. This money cannot he used for
any purpose other than that for
which it was voted, The obscrva
lions of Ihe minister when asking for
lhe vote are taken down iu Hansard,
ami he becomes responsible to the
house fm the proper expenditure of
all sums voted for tiie use uf his de
paitment.
PUBLIC   COMPETITION    PROVIDED
The law provides that all sums to
he expended for anv purpose exceeding $5,060 shall bo offered for public
lender. This is a safeguard to the
public which permits of com petition
ami produces good worki nt reasonable figures.
Before renewing votes the house in
variably asks what was done with
money voted previously, and the
minister's statements are compared
with Die completed work and a thorough cheek is provided. This Is all
.id-iliiiuii.il to the AudItor-General's
functions, one ol which is not to pay
money except in response ift a vole
<d parliament, and only then in
payment for the work specified. The
nubile accounts committee is u tribunal lien Hug with matters alter they
hnvo passed through many competent
binds,
coi NTKY'S MONEY  PROTECTED
In this manner is the money
tin* people protected? From the
time it is voted by the reprcsontfl-
li-.es of the people in parliament until payment is made of Hie completed
work, and oven after the transaction
is concluded the strictest examination!
follows every dollar. In very rare
cases can money go astray. Willi
the present system of audit it is
practically impossible for any person
to defraud lire Dominion. In some
cases iuu much may he paid for an
article, and iu other cases the necessities ol the work may require a
larger figure, but on the whole, the
affairs of the country arc subjected
to a rigid system of audits which
almost precludes the possibility of
any wrong being perpetrated.
WISDOM OF GOVERNMENT'S
COURSE
As the days go by and the incoming
citizens from the motherland arrive
to make their homes iu Canada, the
wisdom of the government's course
with regard to administering public
affairs will be more and more demonstrated. By the time those who
are now commencing their life among
us will lie in a position to ship
thoiH produce, new dransporlntion
faeilities will be ready in the nortli-
t west. In everv direction the rall-

MINERS  HEARING
Lelbbridge, Alta., May 2«>.-The
coal commission began taking evidence tliis morning. John McTag-
g-itt, .1. Rette, S. A. B. Crabbe, II.
t'osame, W. Davis and D. McNab,
miners, told of tbe conditions iu the
(•alt mines. A compensation law,
similar to that in existence in Briiish Columbia, was favored, one witness declaring its exit-lew** would reduce the number of accidents, as
stricter discipline would he enforced
in the mines. Complaint was made
that the payment of wages in tbe
Lelhliridge mine were unsatisfactory
as wages for two weeks were utten
paid at a lime, when three uud fuui
weeks' labor had been completed. The
paying of wages every Hvo weeks
was not objected to as long as the
payment was made at tlie end of thu
two weeks. The eight-hour day was
very strongly advocated. Mr. Crab-
he ' stated that the last
two hours ol        a       ten
hour day were practically worthless
to the operators, as the man was
practically worked out alter eight
hours. In Durham, England, it Was
instanced, ihe contract miners work-
■tl six hour shifts. The majority o
miners in (treat Britain worked eight
hours, bank to bank.
In regard to the hours of work
.uni the wages paid the men working
umlcrgroumi, it was held that these
men were sufieiin-g mental and physical disadvantage, as compared witli
persons employed on the surface, ami
in coiisi-ffuence deserved better treatment.

CRANBROOK'S NEW HOTEL

HAVE A MODERN' HOUSE
BY   NEXT FALL
The welcome announcement was
made tu the Herald this week that
is soon as Ihe plans could be completed work would commence ou Di-i
new Cranbrook hotel hy V. Hyde
Baker. The matter has'been under
consideration for some time, hut Mr
Baker's absence in Ibe Old Country
has rendered il impossible to make
definite arrangements. .Since Ids
return negotiations have been going
on and Die lirst of tbe week everything Wiis settled. The plans are
being prepared and will be fnr enough
advanced in n day or two to present
a basis for asking for tenders for
excavating and the removing of the
present building. Mr. Baker has
agreed to put up a building that
will give Messrs. Hoggarth A- Rollins a hotel ihat will meet in everyway the demand for a flrst-ol-iss
house in Cranbrook. The building on
the corner, the old original hotel
building, consisting nf what is now
iln- office, dining room ami kitchen,
will be removed to the lot acrnss the
lane on which the stable now stands,
<nd will be used as Ibe hotel until
the new building is completed, aftei
wlnicli it will he remodeled into a
number of modern sample rooms.
Excavations will be made for a cellar and room for a huge heating
plant, and a new building, 33x150,
iwo stoiu-s. will he erected. On the
lirst Ih.or of the new building will be
nothing hut the ollice, writing room,
dining room, kitchen nnd lavatories.
Tbe office wili be a commodious one

up iu a style lielltling a first-class
bouse. 'I'he dining loom will he
perfect   in all  its appointments, and
the kilcli.-ii will have every convenience tbat will Insure prompt and

purl is completed the other portion

proprietors have    considered iquallty
rather th 'osl. Fine new bed sets

dishes, dining room tables, and
elnbomte leather covered chairs and
settees. The hotel, when completed,
will he one of llu* best in ibe Interior oi the province, and a credit to
Hie management and to the clly. The
Herald feels that the people nf Cranhrook will appreciate the action of
Mr, Baker in mailing this further investment in tbe city and thus giving
what   was sailh   needed   in   tbe  town,
a hotel built upon such modern plans
as In give tbe traveling public the
conveniences that they ask for.

A FATAL ACCIDENT

SISTER
(Grand Forks Gazette.)
The whole community was intensely
shocked on Thursday morning, when
shortly alter 9 o'clock, il became
mown that Emma Dunnan, the 24
year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
iioini.ui, of Columbia, had met hei
death in a particularly tragic way.
It seems that Delta Donuati, who is
iboiit 29 years of age, is an epileptic
'ttbject, and suffers from attacks of
Mtcilenient ami passi.m which are
'oiliet lines characteristic of the disease. Tlie two sisters were in Uie
kitchen and apparently some small
dispute arose in which the elder sister lost lur temper and flung a slick
.if stove wood at ihe younger girl,
striking her over the left ear and
causing death almost directly.
Dr. Kingston was at once summon-
-d, but although with the assistance
of Dr. Trims artificial respiration
was tried and every tflmt expended.
it became evident that death had
'-nine almost Immediately after the
blow.
The unfortunate young woman became frantic with grief when the
full realization of what had happened
came. Mrs, Doiman and two daughters were in the house at the time.
Mr. Donnaii, wfto work* foi the C.

as the Canadian West is concerned
the conditions of the growing crop
has improved materially in Hit* past
ten days, although a very wide
■Jreleh of country was visited by
from K to in degrees of frost on Sunday night. The possibilities for a
good average crop are excellent at
the present time, but warm rains are
needed, for there is no time to lose

though rains in countries suffering

m\SS DOLLY VARDEN
has at last arrived in Cranbrook, and will be our Guest for two
weeks.
She was late in leaving the East, and was greatly delayed en
route, which accounts lor her not arriving here on schedule time.
We trust every lady of Cranbrook will see her, as she is a very
pleasant little lady, and is engaged in a great work in the interest of
every lady of Canada, and came to this city especially to further the
interests of that great undertaking.
Ladies, if you would have properly shaped feet, free from
corns, free from large, swollen ankles which pain you all day long,
free from the horrors of flat arch; if you would have your feet free
from pain and be able to walk erect in perfect ease and comfort,
don't fail to call at our store and examine the large range of
Dolly Varden Shoes
