If AHiera Players  Had Never
Before Tasted Defeat, They
Uot Double Dose Here
Bold,  Bad  Men   Venture
Bellevue Saturday aud I
Up Stiff Fight
The tliroe bandit:; who held u|> C P.
R. train No. 63, due here from Lethbrldge, on August 2nd. und for whom
large posses of police and civilians
have been searching since (he robbery
at Sentinel, Alberta, occurred, ventured from their place of hiding last Saturday afternoon. They went into
Bellevue, Alta-, after having been at
Coleman, where they made purchases,
and two of the men, Akroff and I-Jas-
BOff, entered a cafe there and were
engaged In eating a meal, seated at
a table, when Corporal Ernest Usher,
It. C. M. P-, of Macleod and Constable
P. W. Bailey, of the A. P. P.. Lethbrldge, who hod been apprised of the
presence of the men, entered, and In
endeavoring to get the desperadoes
arrested, a gun fight ensued.
The men had been lounging about
Bellevue for some Ume. and when
they entered tlie cafe they ordered
substantial meals. When Corporal
Usher and Constable Bailey walked
In and ordered them to put up
their hands, Bassoff showed consummate coolness and parried succesful-
ly for a moment's time, and in that
moment pulled his own deadly weapon and opened the duel at short
range which ended in the two constables and one of the bandits, Akroff.
falling dead or mortally wounded.
Basoff himself was wounded in the
arm' it ia thought, out nevertheless
made his getaway with Arcloff. the
third bandit, who joined him on the
outskirts of Bellevue. That tlie men
have murderous instincts roused in
them is evident from thc cold blooded cruelty which prompted them to
put shot after shot Into Ihe prostrate
bodies j^f the policemen as they made
their way out of the cafe. Akroff not
being shot till they were well outside.
Tlie following dny. Nick Kyslik.
who was working In conjunction with
the police, was shot at Hillcrest by
one of the police whom he was assisting. Kyslik had been searching an
empty house, and as a freight train
was going through Hillcrest at the
time. It Is thought (hat he in some way
got a supposition that he was culled
upon to make for the train for search
purposes. He ran ont of tiio house,
and when called upon to halt by police officers at: a distance who hud
tho house surrounded, and who tailed
to recognize Kyslik. paid no heed to
the call, nnd was shot down. Me had
been sworn fn for special duty with
the pollco owing io his Intimate knowledge  of  the   foreign   settlements   tn
the Pass Country.
It le quite evident Ihul thc Itamlits
have been receiving uid rrom some
cottwatrjota In tlto vicinity, since they
could not subsist long without Dlftklng
frequent calls somewhere    for food
and drink* Illoodiion'.ds art now being employed In the manhunt, but it
Is uot known what success will attend
this move, as rain has fallen and
tended to blur Ihe scenl.

I.asi Saturday ntight at the local
hull grounds Cranbrook and Blalrmore met. The resulting score was 7-3
in favor of Crnnbrook. Tho locals
scored thtlr runs in thn early innings,
while Itluirniore could do nothing
with Auifs pitching until tho ninth,
when with the game safely tucked
away he eased up, with the result
thut Blalrmore was able through
few hltn and a couple of mlBplays to
scorn tlieir three runs- On the whole
tho gume was u fairly good exhibition
although the visitors were not strong
enough to give the local tribe a tight
game. The attendance was poor and
the financial bucking still worse.
On Sunday, tho two teams met ag-
alln at Wycllffe, where the local team
again came off victorious by the score
uf 11-5. The locals hit heavily and
only tlie fact that tho Blalrmore outfield played buck ln tlie bushes and
picked oil the heavy drives of the
winners kept tho score down to within normal limits. Musser pitched
for tiie home crew and with the going
easy all the way wus not required to
xert himself. McTler proved himself the heavy hitter of the series,
with a home run on Saturday and
another clean circuit smash on Sim-
lay. Adamson drove a three bagger
mt Saturday night with tlie bases
The attendance was poor at both
sanies und the result was that the
team found itself compelled to dig up
i big delimit to meet tlie guarautee of
'he Blalrmore team. Pretty tough,
the boys aro justly thinking, when
hey have to provide the amusement
mil tho gute receipts too.
There was a chance to get a colored
earn of stars here for a couple of
games, the Winnipeg Giants, but the
fact that it probably meant a few of
the players having to finance the
tiling caused to to be declared off.
Fernie is here Sunday for what Is
probably the lust game of the season-
The two teams play at 2.30 Sunday
Afternoon at the local grounds. Thia
ought to be a good game.

Trail Business Men
On Auto Tour, Here
Have  Mad*' Trip Hound Long
Circuit via Banff, Calgary, .
and Other Points
A party of autolsts, consisting of
Messrs. 1). McDonald, barrister. Trail;
It- Blois and Gordon Walllnger, of the
Trail Smelter stuff; O. J. Martin and
Chester Tyson, prominent tn the business life of Trail, arrived here on
Tuesday evening from Banff, in Mr.
McDonald's Hudson car.
Tho party had been at Banff. Ed-
mo Mon. Calgary and other points,
having .passed through here about a
week ago. They were enjoying cv-
»ry moment of their trip which had
heen made in record time and without lucltlenti with tlie exception of one
.ast> of tire trouble.
While here en route to Banff they
were guests at the home of Mr. Wallinger's pnrents, Mr. and Mrs. N-
Walllngor, and they were so delighted with the warm hospitality extended to them that they remained here
overnight on their way back, leaving
for home on Wednesday morning.
Uko all other autolsts they were
most enthusiastic about the good
roads they encountered in this section
and enroute to Banff and Edmonton,
hut stated that the roads at points
south were "nnythlng but good." Thoy
passed through the section en route
lure being patrolled by tho "mount -
ii>s" und civilians for the gang of bandits which held up the C. V- IX train
recently. They cached all tlieir valuables about the auto before they got
into that zone and said cars and their
occupants were being closely scrutinized when they appeared In that section, nllhough the officers were most
courteous in giving them advice. All
bridges are being guarded by men armed witli high-powered guns, and
from the number of searchers they
were of the opinion the bandltB would
soon be corralled,
"Banff is one of the beauty spotB of
the world," said a member of the
party. "Thousands are there enjoying the scenery, etc, and our trip was
delightful, but the Bcenery we encountered on the roud between Cranbrook and Fernle compares with any
we linve seen on the. entire route.

Important part of the Dominion at

There have been happenings down
by the sounding sea. Tlie return of

S-, In the provincial elections does
not seem to bode well for Mr. McCur-
dy; still .it by uo means follows that
his defeat will result- The boundaries of the constituencies may not be
the same, certainly tbe issues will be
different. However, every man must
expect to tight for his place these
Seven farmers and five Labor meu
and two Conservatives have made
the political western men sit up again. And this iu the wise and conservative seat- if the farmers can,
fn their attempt, return that many
members down there, what can they
not do elsewhere? Today this Is the
big question. Labor also has a very
fair contingent. The Manitoba and
'Nova Scotia results show that both ot
these groups will be fairly strong ln
the next .parliament. Indeed, tfads
seems to be about the only thing that
one can bank on. The name "Conservative" is not the name to conjure
witli that it once was. There was a
time when Nova Scotia sent 16 Conservatives to tlie House of Common*.
Now lt Bends only two to the Assembly of that province.
As Mackenzie King is about to tour
the west, curiosity is expressed as to
Iiis success as leader of tbe Opposition. The question has been asked,
What kind of a session did he have?
To this It is easy to get two positive
and opposite answers. His friends
mphatlcally declare Uiat he has done
well; while his opponents with equal certainty say that he has beeu a
failure. But it is not to staunch
friends or bitter opponents that one
goes for a straight opinion. The view
herein expressed Is not that of a King
partizan- It ls the result of an honest effort to state the situation fair-
Taking everything into account, ono
is inclined to think that Mackenzie
King had a very good session, and
that he acquitted himself with credit.
Beyond question, he made mistakes,
sometimes putting his fool into It badly; but who would not? He has by
no means shown himself to be a Laurier; but without hesitation one can
say that no other man among the Liberals, save possibly Mr. Fielding,
■mild have done as well. But tbe
latter's age disqualifies him for tho
leadership. As a speaker, Mr. King
has shown himself to be ono of the
first four or five ot the House. As for
his general tactics, tbey were on the
whole very good; Indeed, at timet.
they seemed to be bo good as really
to be the work of old bands at Uie
game. It wus when he had to act
ipilckly, without having much time to
reflect, that he showed weakness. It
waa on occasions such as these that
he exhibited lack of shrewdness,
which Is damaging to a man's reputation in the House.
In fairness to Mackenzie King, he
should not be Judged by the standard
of an old parliamentarian. In point
of service he Is still one of the comparatively new members of the House,
not having Bat through more than
five sessions. Ability ls not the only
quality that makes for success in the
House; rl|>e experience is quite as
important, and this can only be acquired through length of service.
One hears reports of dissatisfaction
with King's leadership, but tt ts difficult to say what these amount to.
Certainly an opposition leader has no
bed of roses. Because of the way
through which Mr King came to his
position he waa bound to be somewhat uncertain of his footing. Nor
will Ms position become altogether

City Confronted
With Question of
Vital Importance
Ratepayers Must Decide Tuesday Whether There Shall
He Light or Darkness
"Cranbrook, B-C,
"August 6th, 11120
"Owing to the advance lu tlie
cost of operation we will be unable to guarantee tho continuance of service after Hist of
August,  1920.
"Negotiations  are  ut  present
under way with tho City, which,
if satisfactory,    will   eliminate
the necessity   of   a   shutdown;
but we thought it wiser to notify you in advance so ub to allow you the maximum of time
to prepare for a substitute for
your present electrical .power.
"Youi'b truly,
Tlie above is u copy of ti letter received by the Herald In
common with tho other users of
electric power in the city lust
week, and a circular has also
been mailed to light users this
woek setting forth the situation
which the electric light company finds confronting it.
The negotiations now under
way with the City, referred to
iu the letter above, refer of
course to the proposed purch-'
a.;e hy th city of tho plane, according to the by-law und agreement to be voted on next
Tuesday. If tho by-law fails
to pass, it is possible that some
arrangement might be arrived
at in order to obviate the danger of a shutdown of the .plant,
hut at the same time there are
so many unpleasant! and difficult situations which might arise In that event, that it-does
not seem wise to consider any
course "other than that the bylaw must pass. The Electric
Light Company hus adopted a
wise course In coming out In a
frank and open fashion with a
presentation of tlieir side of the
case, oa Is net forth on another
page of this issue of the Herald, and in addition haa shown
Itself willing to ease the position of the city by making certain concessions that give the
city a far better bargain than
it seemed likely they would be
able to drive at first*
That a city the size of Cranbrook should be faced with the
danger of being llghtless and
without .power seems a preposterous supposition, but that It
ls quite within the bounds of
^possibility after the end of the
month, if the by-law does not
carry', cannot be denied. In
these Btrcnuous days, when one
mounting eost seems to be succeeded by another in all lines
of business, the company cannot be expected to carry on at
a loss much longer. More especially ls this true since It ls
said that the company ls able,
right at the present time, to
dispose of its plant as It stands
as second hand machinery, and
get a good price for lt, and It is
quite conceivable that this
course seems more attractive to
them than continuing to run the
plant at a loss financially and
for no thanks-
WDiat the city can do with the
plant after it takes possession
remains to be seen- The main
point to be driven home now .is
that the city must get possession, oa the easiest way out of
the difficulty, und following tho
line of least resistance. No
one can reasonably expect that
city will be able to run the
plant any cheaper than the
light company, especially when
capital charges entailed by tlie
by-law are saddled on to It.
But what Is more vital at this
Juncture ls that by the city taking over thc plant, the continuance of a light nnd power Rer-
.vice ls assured for the Immediate future, with some relief
from high rates more than
likely In the more distant future.
lt has boen suggested that
should the city aculre the plant
and after a few months' operation arrive at a cost of production from a careful investigation.
that the plant could be made
self-sustaining through a slight
Increase In lighting rates, and
thus the acquisition of the plant
would not Incrensc taxes.
The Issue Is up to the people
now. If they pass tho by-law
they will be extricating the city
from what looks as though
It might develop Into an extremely awkward predicament,
for the city at large; while If
the? reject th« proposal, tt is
Fuel Shortage of World Could
Be Supplied From There,
Says O'Farrell
{Wrltt€n by P. A. O'Parrell for the
Cranbrook Herald)
Calgary, Alta-, July 31st. — Calgary
bears a closer resemblance to Vienna
than any otlier city I know. Not, of
course, the ruined Vienna of today,
hut to the beautiful city by the Danube which for a thousand years dazzled the world with Ub pomp aud populace. Calgary, lt ls true, cannot
boast of its antiquity, nor of Imperial
parks and gorgeous palaces and solemn temples, yet it Is far more beautifully located by the banks of the
Bow and the Elbow, and tn the economic life of the world of the future
is destiued to play a far more Important role than Vienna shall ever play
ln a single generation this city has
attained a position of great commercial Importance. Located at the Junction of two beautiful rivers, the Bow
and the Elbow,and almost inthefoot-
hills of the Canadian Rockies It ls tho
chief gateway of the ever-expanding
trade of tlie Dominion with the nations bordering on the Pacific. Standing In tlie roof garden of the Pallis-
er Hotel, one of the best on the continent, the tourist can see the Rockies outlined against the western sky,
and to tlie north, east and south rolling meadows and grain fields. Nothing in the Tyrol ln Prance, In Italy, nor In Andalusia Is comparable
to the valley of tlie Bow in sublime
md beautiful natural scenery. Lake
Louise, cradled amid snowflelds and
cloud-capped mountain domes is one ot
the unique beauty spots of the world.
The beauty of the Kananaskls lakes,
river and hills dwells ln one's memory for ever, aud Banff Is the peerless
pluyground of the world.
Fifty miles south of Banff ls a plat-
■au In the foothills at an elevation of
6200 feet. 'Tis a hunters' paradise,
and here aro the beautiful Kananaskls
takes. In this plateau are the well
prlngs of fame, picturesque rivers.
The Kananaskls flows north to the
Bow and the Elk flows south to the
Kootenay. The Elbow flows northeast for twenty miles to Join the Bow
ut Calgary, and the Sheep speeds to
the south and oast to the Saskatchewan. The Kananaskls plateau where
ure born and part four rivers, abounds ln mountain sheep and doer and
grouse and trout- Here, too, watching
these four rivers flowing onwards on
their long Journey to distant and far
distant seas, one can better appreciate
the Hoes of Keats:
The moving waters at their priest-
like task of pure ablution.
Round earth's human shores."
These snowflelds and glaciers, these
raging torrents and gentle streams
and rolling rtvershavecome afar from
the sun-kissed waters- of the Pacific,
and they have been borne hero on the
wings of the wind and deposited on the
hills and the mountains to gladden the
heart of man and give life and Joy to
the world. Their task being done.
they return to the great ocean from
whence they came.
Keats, or Francis Thompson, or
some other of the mystic poets muit
have had this vision of the moving waters In mind when they wrote:
Henceforth live as hecometh one of
God's elect
And though thy sins be countless as
the seashore sands,
Thy life as loathsome as the sulphurous pit, ,
All shall be forgiven and forgot, and
thou thyself shall be dissolved
In the great oceiyi of God's unfathomable love."
Looking down the valley of the
Sheep, one sees two lofty and rugged
ranges guard lt on the north snd south
The Valley for thirty mites Is but two
or three miles wide. Torrents snd
slides and rivulets have worn deep In
the sides of these mountains and In
the gorgeB, gulches, woods and groves
nre plentiful, save where avalanches
and rock slides have played havoc
The ridge on the south side Is a formation of sandstone and shales In nl
ternate layers and In this formation
are some thirty or forty lawers or
seams of coal. The coal seems dip to
the south and west at an angle of 70
degrees, being thus nearly vertical,
and they vary from a few inches to
forty or fifty feet wide.
There are at least fifteen or sixteen
workable seams or coal. They extend
from tlie Kananaskls plateau down thc
Sheep Valley for fifteen or twenty mil
es and in the aggregate there must be
sonietmng like four hundred or llu*
hundred feet of coal in this shale and
sandstone formation.
Five miles down the valley at Glen-
burn a crosscut tunnel is being driven
in the mountain to determine the number of seams und quality and characteristics of these coal measures. About u hundred feet of coal hive al
ready been cut in the lirst thousand
feet of the regular formation.     There
:in* immense seam ot coal exposed in
tlie crest of the ridge and to cut
iiirougU this the tunnel must be driven
.iix or seven thousand feet and wuen
it cuts this seam It will be at a vertical depth of L'&uu feet probably- All of
iiuse seams of coal can be cm.h cut

bas not been able lo sense any
organized opposition to the proposal, it will be well for the electors to take no chances and

of the city of Cranbrook taking
over the plant of the Cranbrook
Electric Light Company for a
consideration and on terms that
are fully set forth in the agreement as published in this issue
of the Herald. The deal is as
good a one as the city can expect to make; and certain modifications have been effected
the advantage of which seem
certainly to accrue to tho city.
The question of expediency enters inlo lhe matter from several different angles and when all

that certain "good many of us"

it will be expedient th the interest of public morals, as well

than an insult to the manhood
of J-Jie city to suppose that any

Moyle Lake.
John Fink was among those who remained over at Moyie for the ball, and
if he did not enjoy himself, no one did.
The shipments of ore for the month
of July from the St. Eugene, Moyie.
were 2400 tons at $70 per ton; trom
the North Star and Sullivan at Kimberley, 2820 tons at $45 per ton.
The citizens of Kimberley have organized to rid themselves of the Chinamen—to make a clean sweep of the
few there now. They are setting a
example worthy of emulation by some
larger places.
At the time advertised, two coaches
well filled with ladles and gentlemen,
went to Moyie for a day's outing. As
previously announced, with the exception of the hotels, all the letdlng business houses lu town were closed for
the day, and many ot the employees
attended the .picnic. The excursionists visited the mines and mill there.
A little worldly-wise criticism
ls handed out quite patronizingly to the Herald in connection with the report of a recent
police court case. Considering
the obviously biased BOtirce
thereof, and not expecting anything else from that uarlqer,
the Herald is not unduly distressed in regard to it, nor are
we inclined to attach much
weight to it. That "too much
color" was injected into the
story in question is the burden
of our critic's complaint. No
disgrace attaches to an attempt
to picture local happenings of
any nature whatsoever with color, or an individual or distinctive touch, so long as no false
hues are thereby created. It is
the Herald's endeavor to do so,
rather than remain merely a
medium for presenting thin,
pallid and faded reflections
wherein not oven a clear outline can be found.

When Uie little band of colonists
that came to the new world early in
May, 1913, were beginning to establish their mission on the shores of
the ronubseot Willi every hope ot
peace and success suddenly a cloud
appeared on tlieir happy horizon. Far
out to sea behind the Islands thai
sheltered their little hope, they caught
sight of an approaching sail. It rapidly uppi-ouched and mon they knew
was an English vessel for they
could sec her Hags. Then they counted the muzzles of seven cannon on
■uch side ol' tlie deck.
Tlie cdinuuinder was Samuel Ar-,
gull, wlio hud sailed to the coast in
.Muy on a cod-fishing trip, but who;
had become involved in thick fogs
und now found himself in tbe Bay of
'onobscot* In addition he had been
uiumlssloned by tlie English governor of the colony farther south, to
lestroy nny settlements of French be
might discover.
Ho soon sighted the white tents of
he newcomers and prepared to fight.
On short;/ all was confusion. The
leaders of the expedition from France
apparently lost their heads and did
little to meet the English. But Du
Tlie-t, one of the Jesuits, rushed Into
the breach and fired the cannon on
tho little ship while others tried to
gel up sail and clear from the anchorage before the real battle began,
nrother DuThet was soon ahot down
nnd when the English boarded the
vessel he lay dying on the deck.
Tlie goods that had been landed on
the shore already were pillaged while
most of the colonists fled to the forests. The next day most of them returned to the sceno where the English were still In possession. Two of
the prisoners were flogg d and fifteen
of them wero turned adrift in an open
boat. In this number were La Saus-
saye, the commander of the colony
and one .lesulst priest. Esther Masse.
They crossed the Bay of Fundy, followed the coast of Nova cotla until
tbey fell in with two French trading
vess?ln which bore tiiem safely to Bt.
Malo. So ended the voyage of the

Crew of Freight Train Remove
Obstructions Found ou Nulls
Near Scene of HoltM'p
What would uppeur to he a deliberate attempt to wreck a Canadian
Pacific train ueur the scene of the I
recent hold-up ut Sentinel, Alta, was
frustrated on Wednesday evening of
last week. Two pieces of iron were
found placed across tlie track, and
the surmise is that it wus intended
for the eastbound pasenger trniDr No-
08, due some time afterwards. No
damage wus done, freight train No.
arriving at the spot shortly before
seven o'clock that evening, wae able
to pull up easily and tho obstructions
were removed by tlie train crew. The
train was travelling eastward, and
the obstructions were encountered
about a quarter of a mile west os
Sentinel. The matter wus rei>orted
to the police, and both the R. C- M.
P. and the Alberta poHce have been
at work on the case, as well as Investigators of the C P. R.
From the company's offices at Calgary a brief statement was issued
outlining ihe facts as mentioned above, and indicating that investigation was taking place.
In some police circles the belief was
expressed that there is a connection
between this attempted wrecking and
the recent sensational hold-up at
Sentinel. The theory advanced Is
that the obstructions were placed on
the rails by friends of the hold-up men
with the Intention of causing an accident which might temporarily detract
attention from the round-up of the
bandlte, thus giving them a better
opportunity of making an escape.

Cranbrook Electric Light
Company, Limited
CRANBROOK, B.C., August 7tb, 1920.
To Our Customers:
Owing to the great increase in the cost of operation, we were compelled, last fall, to apply to the Public Utilities Commission for permission to increase our rates. Tlie Commission met in Cranbrook,
in Marcli. of this year, and went fully into the cost of operation, revenue, etc, of the Company. Tht- City wus represented by counsel.
Wc showed the Commission tlmt we were losing money. They did
not give tlieir dlcislou at lhe time und shortly after the Commission
was ubollthcd without completing its work.
We then proceeded to tuke the matter up, witli the City Council.
We made an offer to sell the plant for -Fti5.0u0.00. A committee was
appointed to investigate. Tlieir report was unsatisfactory and they
were disehcurged and another committee appointed who met the Directors of tliis company; after several meetings they returned to the
Council with a report that they could buy the plant outright for
$57,St)0-00; or the Company would continue to operate on a 10 per
cent, increase over and above costs—rates to be set each three months
after nn audit of liie Company's books by auditors appointed by the
The Council rejected the last offer, but decided to submit a By-
Law to the property holders for the issuing of 160,000.00 worth of de-
hentures lo purchase the plant- Since then the Company has agreed
with the Council to accept these deentures in full payment of the
plant, although they are only worth, on the market, at the present
time $52,500.00.
This By-Law will be submitted on Tuesday, August 17th. It ls
not our Intention to try to Influence you to vote In favor of this By-
Law. We want to clearly place our side of the question before- you,
then leave it to your own good Judgment to vote as you see fit.
The percentage of increase in the cost of our operation has mounted to tlie point where we are just making ends meet and we have
confronting us another increase in wages, fuel and freight rates.
So it is obvious we cannot carry on; in fact, we owe it to the loyalty
of our ^employees that we have been able to continue so long. Some
of them have been working for the Company for much less than they
could earn elsewhere knowing the condition under which we were
Seventy-five per cent, of the Company's stock la owned by people
who now live In other parts of Canada, In England and ln the United
States and it ls hardly possible to ask them to put up for a deficit In
the Company's operations.
It will therefore be impossible for us to operate after August
31st This is not a threat or bluff as some people would have you believe but a statement of fact made with the intention of allowing tiie
people who are now being served by this company, to be in a position
to equip themselves with other means of furnishing "light and power
after that date.
Iu closing we wish to say that the present plant ccould not hi
replaced for $100,00000; thnt it Is In the very best condition, thanks
to our Sueprintendent, Mr. Eakin; and that lt Is un absolute necessity
to the City, us un auxiliary plant, in case of power generated by water
being available at some future date.
Wo wish to thank the citizens and users of light and power for
tho very loyal support thoy have given us In the past nud regret that
tho present conditions have arisen; bul we reel confident that every
reasonable citizen realizes the position wo are placed In which Is general throughout tbe world.

Portland und Settle through -the
Kootenay; to Vancouver over tlie main
line of tlie Canadian Pacific and to all
points in the Prairies over the railroads  centering at Calgary.
The cross-cut tunnel te at an elevation of 5700 feet above sea level. It
it remarkable to find such immense
quantities of tlie very best coal at auch
au elevation wliere It cun be cheaply
mined and shipped so conveniently
north, south, east and west.
This Ulenbnrn coalfield well deserves the attention of geologists. It is
cut off at the western end by a formation or limestone, but it is yet to be
determined how far these coal measures extend toward the east. Glenbum
is now a lovely mining camp fifty miles from the nearest railway. While
there l dined aud sdept in a log cabin,
but Glenbum will not long remain te-
o la ted, for-It is destined to be a busy
industrial centre. Cattle, horses and
sheep are even now pasturing in the
valley, and in the plateau at the head
Oi the Elk Pass. It took five hours
io reach Calgary he team and motorcar down the Valley of the Shee.p-
The road for the first twenty miles
was what the Australians call a bush
road, through lovely glens aud glades
and meadows. At times the river
would be lost to view in a deep gorge
below, hidden in the shade of jfrimev-
al foresis. but the roar of the rushing
Waters could be distinctly heard echoing along the hills. Twenty-six mil-
ts nf tin* valley is a forest reserve,
bul the tun miles at t.lenbnrn belong
io the Coal Company.
Because ii is so typical of Alberta, I
have gone somewhat into details about tlU1 Gleiiburn coal fields. There
are oilier such fields in the Peace
River, and Yellowheail nnd Crows'
Nest Pass, but none where the coal is
o superior and where it can be more
economically mined-
The Dnlted States alone of all the
nations of the world exccels Alberta
in coal deposits. Alberta has six times the coal resources of Great Britain Indeed, it has more coal than
all Europe, Africa and Australia coni-
l-in.'it If the coal measures of Alberta ho carefully conserved and scientifically utilised, and all tho gas and
pet nil Jinil oil and auiuionfa and other
by-products recovered to the best ad-
vantage, the whole world can be supplied with fuel and oil nnd petrol for
;i thousand years from the mines of
Alberto alone.
These are facts worth the careful
attention of the economists and statesmen of Europe and the world. Tho
scarcity of coal in Europe lias caused
frightful suffering ami win cause still
greater. In Italy forty million people
an enduring terrible hardships all
through lack of coal T.iei>oor in all
the countries of Europe have to pay
fabulous prices and oven then cannot secure enough coal. Factories
are idle nl) over continental Europe
because of the fuol shortage, while
here In Ihe hills and glens of Alberta
Is coal enough to supply the world for
a thousand years, needing only men
lo die il nnd rails and ships to carry
it to lho ends of tho earth.
There Is also a threatened scarcity
of i'onl In Eastern Canada and In the
Cnted States and lt Is an anomaly to
see people In Ontario and Quebec paying $1<> and $17 a ton for American
conl, while better conl could be secured from their own mines In the
West if ninn-imwer could be had to
mine it nnd if adequate rail transportation wero supplied.
It cannot be too strongly urged upon
the monds of tho people thnt if Alberta
a ml British Columbia are to play their
j destined role In the economic life of
the world they must have mere and
moro railroads and mnny more mil
lions of willing hands to develop and
utilize their vast natural resoureos.
The whole world Is In need of British
Columbia aud Alberta coal. Already
shlpmonlR nre being made from Bri
tish Columbia to Sweden, nnd nil the
shipping and nations nnd islands of the
Pacific will ere long be seeking coal
; from thn rich fields of Alberta. But
more men aro urgently needed to help
[bulla railroad* aad lo ■!■• tka coal
secure until he has has a much lar-'
ger following outside the province of
Quebec. Speaking of trouble, when;
Sfir Rebert, then plain K. L, Borden,
led Uie opposition, lie had his share of
it. In every session of 1911 his lead-
erablp very nearly came to an ond
through a revolt among his party. Itj
was derisively said tli.tt ho had no|
punch. Also that he was too lady-1
like, and that he would never get thel
party anywhere. Almost every lead- j
lug Conservative knows these state-1
meats to l>e true. Do as good work j
as ho may. ; n opposition loader will
Im pronounced a failure unless he drl- j
ves his ol'lHuietits from office.
One is Inclined to think thut tho
next session will be a much BOVWorl
test of Mackenzie King than the last [
two huve been. He will be confront-j
ed in the new Prime Minister with one
of the cleverest parliamentarians that
the Commons has produced in years;
one who in criticism is merciless, and
who, if an opening presents itself,
siezes it uud makes the most cf It-
Sir Robert Borden and Sir George Poster assumed a very kindly and even
fatherly attitude towards the youthful opposition leader, which is hardly
to be expected from one of his own
age, and who is looking for a chance
to score. Between Melghen and King
it will be a case of the survival of the
fittest, with all that that Implies. If
the latter comes through next session
us well us he did the last one, he te
to be reckoned with.
Looking back over the list of Liberal Opposition leaders und execejiting
Laurier, who was in a class by himself, Mackenzie King so far seems, on
tlie whole, to measure up well with
the rest. Take Alexander Mackenzie;
he certainly had not anything like
King's training for the position. It
may be that In some lespects, he had
greater native talent; but ollice soon
disclosed In 1.1m weaknesses that were
fatal to the party. Moreover, he, made
his mark, not as-an opposition leader,
but as Prime Minister; aud had it not
been for the Pacific scandal lie undoubtedly would have waited a long
time for ofllce. He never succeeded
in rallying his followers as Macdonald
ir Laurier did- Indeed, those best
acquainted with him declare that in
matters of organization he was a failure.
Edward Blake, who succeeded Mackenzie as leader of the Liberal opposition, was one of the greatest, if not
thejireutest, mind that parliament ever saw. But he wan such a giant in
Intellect) so much out of tlie role ot
common men that he stood aloof, unable to get into, or keep in, touch with
all f.,I lovers- Cutler his leadership
the Liberals got nowhere and disappointed and sick at heart he threw up
(he position.
Tlie selection of Laurier as leader
was, by gome of the leading Liberals
of lhe day. considered as anything but
wise. They could see no future for
tlie party witli a French-Canadian and
n Roman Catholic as leader. As a
matter of fact, so much was his sel-
tlou considered as an experiment
that he was merely taken on trial, sel-
ted. not by the party in convention,
hut by u committee of three members
of Uie caucus, laurier achieved success because the old Conservative government was breaking up and further
because he had around an unoommon-
lot of strong men from Ontario who
did the lighting, while the leader made
good use of his sunny ways.
It is Impossible to predict with any
degree of certainty how far an opposition leader will go, or what success
lie will have, the results being decided
by many other factors than his own
abilities. On the whole, Laurier probably started out under conditions
more, or at least equally unfavorable
than thfise that confronted King. Having got this chance he developed surprising power of leadership. A lead-
br -possessing fondness for the game,
lndU8trya readiness of speech and a
quick mind, is nol to be held lightly In
esteem- Hon. Arthur Melghen ls not
magnetic In the sense that the word la
us unity understood, but he has these
oilier ((Uulitles to a very high degree;
uud today he is prime minister. He
got there also in spite of the opposition of certain powerful Interests. No
one can tell what awaits Mackenzie
King; but to underestimate him at
this stage of the game would be a
great mlstakt.
The knowledge that Mackenzie
King hns always had the assistance of
persons of strong Influence at court
makes some less certain of his future
now that he will have to depend upon
his own efforts pretty much. Being
one of Sir Wilfrid's bftghuboys, the
former gave him what chance he was
able; certainly an Inestimable advantage. It was this known fondness of
the old chieftain for King that made
the Quebec delegates back him so solidly for the leadership. But all that
Influence can do for him, apparently,
hns been done. Mr. Melghen, however, has come up through hard and
unremitting work. This is a circumstance that the best judges-feel certain
will keep htm nt tho top for a considerable time, whether In or out of office.

Dr. Baker, Chairman of Game
Conservation Board Directs
Official Movie Service
"Director of Patriotic and Educational Picture Service" is the mouth-
filling title which has been conferred
upon Dr. Baker, cliatrman of the provincial Gume Conservation Board-
By order-in-council passed by the cabinet at Victoria, ho hns been given
a new position, one which, unlike his
activities ns bend of the Uamo Board,
will provide for hint the salary of $300
per mouth.
The picture service Is that authorized under legislation passed at the
lust session of tho legislature, providing for the organization of a department for -producing moving pictures of scones and events in British
Columbia, these to be shown, not alone In British Columbia moving picture theatres, but nlso to be exchanged with otlier provinces, aud to be
shown abroad, The legislation makes it imperative Unit theatres In the
province must show the government
pictures at least llfteoa mlnutea at
each performance. The pictures comprise scenes of British Columbia's Industries, wild animal Hfe, etc, not
forgetting the pictures of the members of the Government and of tlie
Legislature. When tlie bill creating
the new service was before the Legislature lt formed the butt for considerable good-natured criticism from
Opposition members, who were unkind
enough to suggest that coming as it
does on the eve of a general election,
tho sccheme was devised merely for
political propoganda purposes, and
tlie various theatre licensees throughout the province were to be forced to
display the portraits of Government
members, politicians and views of ofiicial activities.
Dr. Baker, us head of the Game
Conservation Board, has not been receiving- any regular salary, but his
travelling und other expenses have
been paid from the public treasury.
He hus the distinction of being the only individual of the service who has
been pluced upon the same basis as
cabinet ministers in the matter of
travelling expeness. He Is allowed
the regulation $10. per diem for such.
In ndditlon, he is now to receive
$3,000 a year, as director of the moving plsture service. It has been rumored that It is the intention in the
near future to send Dr. Baker to
Great Britain in charge of a moving
picture propaganda for the purpose of
making more widely known to Old
Country residents the industrial and
agricultural possibilities of British
Columbia, and especially the advantages of the province from the standpoint of settlement .

Eighty    Thousand   Kamloops
Trout Fry Being Introduced Into Lakes This Season
By the end of the month, eighty
thousand fry of the Kamloops trout
or Kootenay salmon variety Will have
been liberated In the various lakes
sccattered over the Kootenay section,
according to C. W. Harrison, of the
Dominion Fisheries Department, who
has been engaged in tbe work,
Mr. Harrison states that lakes tn
Kast Kootenay had been stocked with
tho fry to the extent of 40,000 during
the month. Of tbat number 12,000
had been put Into Monro Lake near
Cranbrook; 8,000 into the Minnehaha
chain of lakes near Wardner; 8,000
near Jaffray; 6,000 Into Silver Sprinys
lake near Fernle; and 6,000 Into Surveyors Lake at Waldo-
Instancing the success ot stocking
lakes with Kamloops trout, Mr. Harrison cited the instance of F. A. Dunn,
of this city, of the Dominion Conservation Board, who landed a 30 pound
specimen measuring 41 Inches In
length, and 25 inches In girtb, at Premier Lake last May. That lake, ho
said, was barren .at the time ot Inserting the fry In August, 1916.

Cranbrook, B.C., Aug. 9, li»20-
Editor Cranbrook Herald:
Dear Sir:—With reference to a paragraph appearing in last week's is-
*ue of the Cranbrook Courier relating
tu tlie Cox case, I would like, as the
mother interested, tiie use of a little
(space in your columns to protest
against the attitude the editor of tbe
Courier takes up- Tiie impression
une gels from reading tliis paragraph
is that iht'i't Iiuh been a great deal of
fuse raised about nothing; that there
was nothing to the case at all, and
that apparently it should never have
heen brought to the notice of tht \>o-
Hce at all.
Tlie editor of the Courier must have
considered It an insignificant matter
from the beginning, tor he did not
deign to make any mention of it the
week the case was lirst heard, but last
week, ten days after the occurrence,
comes out with the art! le I am complaining about.
He takes far too much for grunted
in assuming that because the accused
wan released on suspended sentence
lie was thus exhouerated from all but
purely proper motives. He disregards the fact that at the hearing of
the appeal certain sentimental argu
ments were brought forward which
while they had no connection with tiie
VucIh of the case, were yet taken Into
consideration In allowing the appeal
to tiie extent of suspending sentence.
Tlie .prisoner's wife is understood to
have written from Calgary, showing that the family would be
left In straightened circumstances if
the man was sent to Jail, and also revealed the fuct that she herself was In
a delicate state of health- Tlie Courier does not think it worth while to
mention tlit'HO facts, but tries to leave
ihe imputation that in releasing the
accused all suspicion was lifted from
lilm- I do not think that being released on suspended sentence is equivalent to being discharged, and leave
it to your readers to decide for themselves.
I have always thought that the
newspapers should be looked upon as
reflecting .public opinion, but after
reading the moral sentiments that the
editor of the Courier sets out in his
comments on this occurrence-*! do not
believe that his paper deserves to be
looked upon as such. I know that
many decent cltiitens share with me
the disgust mat his remarks arouse.
We feci that; his mind in giving expression to these remarks does not
want to work for the moral uplift of
tlie city. He says that "the worst
thing the man did was to speak to the
two young girls." How far would he
things have to go before be would
believe that there was an Improper
motive behind tbe man's actions?
Many a girl's undoing has started
from tbe self-same occurrence, and In
matters of this kind past experience
a better Judge than the editor of the
It is also stated that the Herald
used "too much color" in giving a
report of the matter, but I believe that
if the Courier would have the courage
to use a little more of the same color,
tho people of Cranbrook would be
more convinced that it Is really Interested In keeping up the moral tone
of the city. As It Is we are compelled
to believe that Its editor Is a firm believer In a double standard of morality, and If this is the case It ls no
wonder he is willing to condone all
manner of happenings.
I    hope    have not taken    up too
much of your space, but I naturally
feel very strongly on the matter.

has been recovered, the body of
Mrs. A- Moe, of this city, having been
found near Bear Creek, last Thursday afternoon by her brother-in-law,
Mr- James Watlworth, of Lethbrldge,
who since the accident occurred, ln
which Mrs. A. C Blaine also of this
city, and Miss Thelma Herritt, of
Klmberley also lost tbelr lives, has
been an almost constant searcher for
tho bodies of the victims. Mr. Wall-
worth was among those who always
believed tiiat tbe bodies would be recovered when the surging waters of
St. Mary's Itiver receded uulUciently
to permit ot thorough search being
The body of Mrs- Moe was well preserved considering tlie fact that lt
had been in the water for more than
six weeks, and was found only three
miles below the scene of the accident-
Word was immediately sent to the
city, and Mr. F. M. MacPherson, undertaker left for the scent, returning
on Friday evening with the remains.
The body was prepared for burial
and shipped to Lethbrldge on Saturday morning's train, the funeral
taking place there on Sunday afternoon- Mr. Moe accompanied the
body, and many Cranbrook friends
of the family were at the station to
pay their last respects to tlie dead-
Deceased was born at Lindsay, Ont.,
and came to this city about a couple

was a member of tbe local Rebekah
