Largely Attended Meeting In City Hall
Monday Evening Disease the
At the public meeting held at the
city ball on last Monday evening thero
waa a very fair attendance equally
divided botween residents of tho city
and those living outside, It waa .tho
consensu", ot opinion that the public
market should bo kept alivo in this
city for tho. bonoflt of the surrounding farmers as well no tlie cltltona of
Cranbrook. Tho matter of the huccoss
of the market depended entirely nn
the number of houuewlves who would
make lt a weekly practice to attend
tho market and purehasu whenever
they thought they wero securing bargains. The necessity of advertising
the market ue a bargain giving In-
atltution wus also emphasized. There
lfl no question but that the past three
markets have wopked out Ifor the
benefit of the district as a wholo, although a fow who occupied stalls were
somewhat dissatisfied with their results.
That certain commodities or products will Bell better tn certain seasons was also brought out by speakers
and the farmer wha haa to occasionally return to hla farm with part of hie
load should not feel discouraged. The
farmer must study the needs of the
buyors at the various seasons of the
year and the purchasers must also be
prepared to deliver' heir own purchases If the market Is "   ba a success.
The meeting was called to order
shortly after eight o'clock by Mayor
Taylor, who briefly outlined the objects of the meeting.
Secretary Webb then further enlarged upon the objects of the meeting which was to endeavor to make
the public market a permanent Institution and he pointed out that with the
curtailment ot the lumbering and the
discharge of the C. P. R. employees
the city must fall back upon the farmer for support and must give him
such encouragement as will assist ln
making him prosperous, which will
result In prosperity In the city. The
public market ls one ot the moat
necesary moves at the present time
as It provided a market for produce,
which the tanner had not enjoyed
lir. Watts then asked the object of
the meeting.
Moved by Mr. Frank Detail and
seconded by Mr. T. J. Doris that ln
the opinion of the meeting a regular
public market would be for the benefit of both consumers and producers
In Cranbrook and vicinity. Thin motion was unanimously carried.
A vote of thanks was then tendered
Messrs. W. Hamilton and W. B. Mac-
Farlane for the generous offers ot ac-
comodation given the market.
Mr. Watts thought that the municipality should be asked to provide a
public market.
Motion by Mr. B. Palmer, seconded
by A. B. Smith, was carried providing
thst a committee of six be elected to
act as a market committee and to be
named as follows: One alderman, and
one from each of tho following societies: Board of Trade, Agricultural
Aaociation, Farmers' Institute, Poultry
Association and Women's Institute.
Amendment proposed by Mr. Watts
waa defeated.
A motion was proposed that the
municipal authorities be called upon
to provide a market for Ihe sale ot
the products of the surrounding districts, Including a yard or encloaure
for tlie sale ot goods In large bulk
such as bay, wood, etc., thst a small
fee be charged those selling their produce, that lt la advisable to appoint
an official agent to handle small shipments on commission. Further, that
the municipal authorities bo atked to
levy a license on peddlers of produce,
and It the municipal act does not allow tbat thia means be taken to petition the government to amend the act
to that effect.  Motion carried.
It waa proposed by Mr. B. Palmer
that the members of the market com-
mltee should be elected pro tern st this
mooting to long ss one member It obtained from each ot the bodies mentioned In the motion.   Motion carried.

The news of Provincial Mine In-

paBBed Into history. The Auditorium

spectacle that will long he remembered by those privileged to attend the
flrst regimental bail of the local soldiers.
There have been New Year's Eves
and New Year's Eve 'unctions, in
Cranbrook galore, but there was never
auch a public New Year's Eve celebration as that held in the Auditorium,
when the people of Cranbrook and the
district met to attend the tlrst annual
ball of tho Volunteer Club and to bid
adieu to the old year and welcome the
new year. All the representative
people of town were there and everybody allowed the thought of war and
hard times to flee—even the soldiers
themselves—entered Into the spirit of
the evening with a "Ring out tlie old,
ring In the new, the best of lite is yet
to be" feeling.
The evening started very sedately. A
varied program of forty numbers, Including dances, waltzes, two-steps and
three steps had been planned, and admirably carried out. A feature was
the two moonlight walties, the dreamiest of dreams.

to decoration perfectly, and Friday

Herald acrlbe behold a sight simply
a delight to the eyes.
Tbe Btage and orchestra pit were
decorated with a finish that baffles
this country scribe and beggars description. This part of the hall was
decorated most effectively, the decorations being suggestive of the object
for which this ball was given—the

Ur. and Mrs. J. H. King were at
home to their friends on New Year's
afternoon and evening and a large
number of their many friends in the
eity took advantage of the occasion to
extend to Mr. and Mrs. King the
heartiest of the season's gretings.
More than one hundred callers arrived during the afternoon aud evening.
Their beautiful home on Armstrong
avenue waB especially decorated for
the event The spacious drawing
rooms were decorated in green and red
with a charming display ot white
chrysanthemums. The dining room
was decorated with yellow chrysanthemums and presented a most inviting appearance.

to be a step In the right direction and

ahould have been stnrted long ago and
that It waa up to the whole community
to get In and support the market. Mr.
Howness as a candidate tor tho
mayoralty In the coming year was listened to with considerable pleasure
by the boosters for the market.
Mr. Chas. R. Ward thought tliat a
food way to start the market off was
to ask tho city for a donation, In
which manner evory taxpayer contributed something toward the queatlon.
He thought that the building offered
by Mr. Hamilton would soon not be
large enough tn provide for the market, He waa of the opinion that the
patronage of the market would Increase ss soon bb the ladles of the

conditions. He thought it it the Chln-

there was not a leaf nor a flower too

The decorations which were along
patriotic and Imperial lines were em-
blamatlc of the allied nations taking
part with Oreat Britain in the present
war. Shields bearing the colours of
Great Britain, France, Japan, Russia,
Belgium and Servia were displayed
with the flags of these nations over
which were hu ngcrossed rifles. The
regimental crest of thc 107th regiment
occupied a prominent place. The stage
was decorated with evergreens and

The presence of the Cranbrook orchestra, under the most capable and
able leadership of Mrs. Arnold Wallinger, undoubtedly was a "star" attraction. MrB. Wallinger had made
special efforts for this occasion, and
that her efforts were successful wai
made apparent by the generous measure of applauso accorded the various numbers on thc lengthy program.
The music was almost continuous,
and many, yielding to the Influence of
its seductive note, remained for "Just
ono more" dance, or "sat out" two,
three or four numbers to drink In Its
soul-Ins pi ring strains. The Cranbrook orchestra waB at Its very best,
and that ts saying much. It was good
to be alive. Thoro composing tho orchestra were: Mrs. Wallinger, violin;
Mra. Mater, piano; Mr. Parker, flute
and plccaalo; Mr. Kettringham, cornet; Mr. P. Parker, violin cello; Mr.
W. Walsh, drums.

with requests to become a

have decided to allow my

believe in economy in public affairs and this year it
will be more necessary

After careful consideration I have decided to
place my name before the
electorate of Cranbrook.
In doing so I appreciate
tho confidence of my
many friends In persuading me of the importance
of sane, business, civic
government. As managing director of the largest
commercial company operating In the city, and
with a wide financial experience extending for
over a period of fourteen
yoars, 1 feel reasonably
sure my services as an
alderman will meet with
the approval of the ratepayers of the City of Cranbrook.
Yours truly,
A. C. Bowness
Having beetl solicited by a large number of the ratepayers lo stand again as a candidate for Mayor, I wIbIi to
announce that I will offer myself as a candidate and I
BOliolt the supporl of the voters for Ihe honorable ollice of
Mayor of tlio Cily of ('ranbrook.
I ilii tliis feeling lhat It Is the desire of a majority of
(lie ratepayers and voters that a change should be made In
(he administration ut the City Hall.
Everyone knows my past record as Alderman nnd
Mayor and upon this record I respectfully solicit your
cordial support.
1 have uo political ambitious to gratify or axes to
grind, and no sect, section or individual has any strings
on me.
I believe that Ihe business of thc city is the business
of the ratepayers and should be conducted in an efficient
manner, In the interets of the city as a whole, that all
business should be open nnd above board and that pull,
politics and religion should have no consideration.
In asking for your votes for Mayor I also ask for
your votes for the six councilmon supporting me, four of
whom have had varied experience of from two to seven
years on the council of this city, the other two being men
of unquestioned business ability. If you see fit to elect me
as Mayor for the incoming term, I shall endeavor, with
their assistance to carry on every legitimate public undertaking for tlie advancement of Cranbrook, I will give my
time and attention to the affairs of the city and will endeavor to see tliat the public interest is in every way carefully safeguarded.
Yours Faithfully,
Municipal  Elections
To the Eloetors:
Knowing the financial
condition of the city at the
present time and the general conditions which surround the city, it has been
with extreme reluctance
thai I have yielded to the
entrealies of many electors to run for alderman
tliis year and it is only
upon a platform of strictest economy tliat I hereby
announce my candidacy.
I served for two years as
alderman and know the
necessities which confront
us at this time. Therefore,
If I am. elected alderman,
my time will be devoted to
conserving the city's interests. My record for two
years as alderman will
bear your scrutiny, and
upon this record I respectfully solicit your support.
