New Brunswick had its Fleming,
Manitoba had its Roblln and British
Columbia may well profit by their
The thanks of the people of Canada
are due the Hoyal Commission which
did its work so thoroughly in Manitoba.
If Premier Burden Is to live up to
his press notices liis lirst job when he
gets home should be to road Sir Rodmond Roblln and the Hon. Bob
Rogers out of tlie Conservative party.
There are few editors In this prov
lnce who have not made a vigorous
and continuous tight against thc city
mall order house. This has been
done In the interest of the home mer
chant and without money and without price. If tlie editors of the land
received regular advertising rates for
all they have said against these enemies of the country merchant, they
would now he wearing diamonds.
Now, in progressive communities, the
department ston- man appreciates advertising space, and is willing to take
all tiie editor has for sale and at
good price. What other class of
business or professional men would
refuse husiness to help their friends,
especially as many of the said friends
never seem in the least disposed to
return the compliment?—Ex.
Ottawa. August 19.—Politicians here
are pointing out that the Conservative
press hus been mighty quick to draw
a moral from the Manitoba election.
The moral Is that the defeat in Manitoba must not he linked up with the
government ot Ottawa. Of course
there are other morals whicli might be
mentioned, such as the need of pure
politics and honest cabinet ministers,
but the most practical one is thut the
sins of the Roblin government must
not be visited on the powers at Ottawa, even though the honorable
Robert Rogors Is one of tliem.
The Conservative press, Jointly aud
severally, complains that it is unfair
to link the Borden government up
with the doings at Winnipeg. No
doubt tlie people of Canada will play
fair and refuse to do any more link-
ing up than the Horden government
has done on Its own account. When
Premier Borden took the Honorable
Robert Rogers Into his cabinet, hc to
a certain extent linked up with Mr.
Rogers' reputation as the Manitoba
Boss. When he allowed Mr. Rogers
to take four months off from hlb job
at Ottawa to handle the Manitoba election hc carried the linking up a step
When Mr. Rogers received a telegram from Mr. C'oldwell saying "This
means more to you than It docs to us,"
the Unking up received Its final touch.
Bob's past called to hlm In tones of
thunder and hc had to go. There Is
no need of alarm on the part of the
Conservative newspapers. Tlie people
of Canada will not do any more Unking up than the Horden government
sanctions and the circumstances warrant. The Rldoau Club, which lc tho
unofficial center of political alarms,
shows a disposition to di'ikl Hod
Robert Rogers the goat. 'l*t- truth Is
that the Minister of Elections did his
best, or his worst—whatever you call
lt—but the job was too big for him.
Like General Buller in South Africa
he Was put up against something
which it wns Impossible to d.i with
thc means at his command, If he had
been given a general Dominion election when he Ilrst wanted it, Manitobu
might still he in the Conservative list.
So far as blame is concerned they
ought to wobble It a little. Bob is
getting It all.
In British Columbia
Another source of panic Is British
Columbia, where Attorney-General
Bowser is the little boy with his linger
ln thc dyke. If he ever pulls It out
the mens will be terrible. Kven now
the tempest Is rising and the flood of
wruth ts almost upon him. The clergy
of the lower mainland and a number
of good oitisens have bunded together and are demanding a Hoyal Commission to Investigate, The figures
submitted by their experts Indicate
that, enmpaied with British Columbia, looting was Just In its Infancy In
Manitoba. Where thfl Manitoba crowd
took millions, the British Columbia
outfit got away with tens, perhaps,
hundreds uf millions. They're no
pikers out there In Victoria. When
they play poker with tho public resources tho roof's the limit.
It was a brisk game while It lasted,
but the province ls about gutted now. I
A Royal Commission In Hritish   Columbia  would  ahow  the  treasury as
bare as Mother Hubbard's cupboard,
and nothing to line the shelves but the
worthless promissory notes of the ex
plolters  and  speculators,
thero Is little   present   danger of a
Royal Commission lu Hritish Columbia to be followed by a general election as was the case In Manitoba.   In
had a wash up, British Columbia goes
in for a hush-up. Until thc sky looks
a good deal brlgter than it does now,
safety first will be the McBride-Bow-
ser Une of action. Meanwhile the general situation Is being viewed with
alarm and trial balloons are being issued from Ottawa from time to time,
with a view to feeling out Liberal
opinion on a modus Vivendi. A Coalition Government is being more or
less vigorously opposed by the Conservative newspapers, whieh is a good
sign of what is running In tlieir minds.
Some are presumably in favor of It.
They speak of national problems and
the necessity of a "national government" to meet them. The wish is
willing to do almost anything to save
its bacon. Although the voters lists
perhaps father to thc thought. At any
rate the suggestion ls there, to tuke
or to leave, us may be deemed tit.
In fuct, the Horden government is
In thc unorganized districts are be
Ing prepared and decks ure being
cleared one way or another for a general election, the desire for It seems
not us keen us It was before the results in Manitoba put the fear of the
Lord into their hearts. Hints of
peace, peace with honor and the long
end of the spoils, the kind of peac
the Germans want, are in tlte air.
The latest Is contained In a despatch
from Ottawa, which appeared in the
Toronto Mail und the Montreal Gazette, simultaneously on August 9th.
Tlie gist of this despatch wus that an
extension of the parliamentary term,
a good, long extension, say uf three
years, whieh would perhaps see
them buck Into better times, Is the
way out of the difllculty. The good
will and sincere support of the opposition Is bespoken for this proposal
to give Premier Borden a general
election ut the time thut suits hlm
best. Hopes are expressed that the
Liberal party and the house wlll agree
to it and that the Liberal press will
do no snarling on the side.
Along with this scheme to get the
inside position, goes the faint outline of the policy on which the government may appeal to the country—
namely closer imperial relations. This
policy Ih based on the fact that Premier Borden wns an invited guest at an
Asquith cabinet meeting, just
Lloyd George wns an invited guest at
a Koss cabinet meeting on his last
visit to Canada. Although no change
or imperial relations followed, this
act of courtesy toward Lloyd George,
some of the Conservative party managers think, that the Borden Incident
ought to be ot considerable value in a
general election. It may be that the
closer imperial relations consist of
having a Canadian cabinet minister
as high commissioner In I-*ondon—
tliis has long been a hobby of Premier
llorden's—but in any event the ideu
would give rise to a fine flow of sentiment and would serve well as a
party slogan. There would be no
harm In trying it and perhaps some

The 1.(15 Follies Held thc boards at
the Auditorium Monday evening, to a
good-sized house. A programme In
three parts was carried out and, taken
whole, was an improvement on
the 1914 show. B. C. (British Columbia! Hllllam Is an accomplished and
bin pianist and received several
rounds of well merited applause.
Miss Anne Lochead has a pleasing
Voice and a commanding stage appearance, Her rendition of "Megan" won
the applause uf the audience. Arthur
Soames In "How People Read the War
News" was greatly appreciated, fie
had several original skits. "The
Foundling" fu which Henry Anstie
was tlie star, provoked laughter from
anyone who knew how to laugh. His
number wus the must original aud
ably presented during thc evening.
Anstie Is original In everything. Miss
Dora Itlgold sung "Thc Day" to perfection. Her rich voice, full of expression and naturalness struck the
responalVO chords of her audience.
She was tendered an ovation at the
conclusion of her number. The burlesque opera "Oil Well That Knds
Well," or "Calgaryu Rur.tleana" was
not relished by a number of the audience. The number seemed to bring
home thought of a year ago, when
everybody expected to "get rich
quick" over night. People seemed
satisfied when tlie number was done
and over with. There was uo encore,
and ft seemed proper, The mention
of oil sends a chill down one's spinal
column', Wm. Sauter In a Dickens
Monologue was good.
Part two of the programme, "The
Man In the Stalls," was a piece of acting which was quite realistic. It
was a story of the vllllan again
breaking Into the sacred family circle
and robbing the home of Joy and happiness. Cranbrook has a couple of
real actors who have been playing
this same stunt for years, and not on
the Auditorium stage cither.
The bill closed with a pantomime
rehearsal by Cecil Clay, a good bunch
of nonsense thoroughly mixed. The
entire company took purt in this play-

Dear Mr. Boale;
I am taking advantage of a short

you while I have tlie chance.
Time tiles very ipilekly and It will

Just at present things are comparatively quiet. In this part of the
field, but ft ls hardly likely that they
will remain so very long.
The time ls just about due for
another burst up, which seem to come
periodically about every six weeks.
I do not look forward with any decree of pleasure to a winter in the

that Is what we aro In for. However.

eighties,   he   was  appointed  to  look [ WaJjIilflU  nUKKMtS

from wliere the Kootenay River empties  into  Kootenay  hike.
At the time of his appointment there
were no white settlers or miners in
the vicinity of his mission, but u year
ar so after there was a gold rush Into
East Kootenay and prospectors and
minors camp down the Kootenay In
ill boats and steamers from Bonner's Ferry, in Idaho. Some of these
prospectors camped near the mouth
of the river for tlie purpose of prospecting tho hanks of the liver. Their
arrival was not viewed with a very
frlonidly eye by tlie Kootenay Indians
on the reserve.
When Father Cocola arrived to work
among thcui he told them that hc had
come to Instruct and benefit them as
much us possible. Among the prospectors who were scattered along tbe
shores of Kootenay lake and the banks | Fink, Rosindale, Finlay and
of the Kootenay river were many of
his co-rellgfonlsts. Naturally he paid
them visits at different times. The
fact of bis doing so coming to the ears
of the Indians gave rise tu much discussion ami jealousy, as they looked
upon the priest as one who should devote liia time to them alone. He was

(Special  correspondents)
Invermere, B.C., August iili.—Per
sUitent rumors are still afloat to the
effect that the Paradise mine situated
lenr the head of the North Fork of
Toby Creek Is about to be re-opened.
Nils mine is situated on the Paradise
Basin and Is located upon a property
.-cry rich In galena. A great deal of
.vork was done upon It in past years
hut owing to the short season during
whicli it was then possible to ship ore
the work was closed off for many
years; but now with tlie operation of
he Kootenay Central railway
ichedule running the conditions have
.ntirely changed. Owing to the fact
that tliis townsiie's borders are on the
top of a high grade Immediately con-
tlguous to the railway siding It Ib
more than probable that when shipment commences that the chutes for
the loading of the cars will be made
tlong the bunk at the railway Biding,
tn this connection the preliminary
ixamlnatfon has been made of a more
lirect road leading to the mine has
il ready been made. It follows the
-oute of the old original pack trail
ii]i to the property and is of easier
trade than) nny road to that part at
.iresent In existence.
Work of further developing the
Lead Queen to the north of here has
commenced In the form of opening up
the wagon road to the property. A
;ang of men with teams is busy on
tlie route. Tlieir number will shortly be further Increased und the construction of the road pushed ahead.
It is the hope of the owners that they
will be in u position to deliver at
least one car of ore per day to the
railway by the tlrst of December next
at the latest.
Work Is ulso being done in a
quiet wny nn another claim known as
the Top Notch, formerly called the
Tecumseh. with the end in view of
shipping u carload of ore as a test.
This property was also under development In pust years, but owing to
some legal entanglement as to ownership, wus closed down for the
time being.
Purlher sacrifices are being made
by small communities for tiie cause
of King und Country in the wuy this
time of giving up 0r the medical
practitioners. The strnln is keenly
fdt In muny ports and this is no exception. With a population of at least
one thousand persons this district
now finds Itself without u doctor, tin

Editor Herald:
Sir:   1 onlclose a copy of a letter
written to the Toronto "Globe" by the
Bishop of Huron, from Loudon, Ont.
It strikes me very forcibly that this
letter and the serious; position of Canada which  It sets    forth should    be
brought home In all its seriousness to
us in this immediate district.   I would
like to sec it printed tu full In your
paper.   While It Is true that wo    in
Cranbrook huve done well both lu contributions of men uud of money for;
the cause of our country. I think 11 is
also true tluit we men, particularly in
Cranbrook and district, have not hy |
any moans met our lull responsibilities lu the mutter   or local   military
training.    Why should It be so difficult to arouse any gonulllQ Interest iu
and enthusiasm  tor military training!
under the conditions existing lu our
country at the present tlmo?   Hlvary
man fu town* no matter what hie sin* j
talon in life or society, should hi- will-
lug and anger in those perilous times
to do all he can to lit himself to bo In
a measure at butt prepared tor any j
emergency that may arise.   He should j
be willing surely to sacrifice u  little
ot his own convenience ami pleasure
for this purpose, anil If tlie mutter is I
looked ut In this proper spirit of duty j
and sacrifice, there would bo u woek-1
ly turnout in tliis town or at least 1(H) |
men for military training, Instead of
the mere handful there lias been   for j
tlie past few montlis.   Why can't we i
Cranbrook men who feel that we can-;
not at any rate ut tho present time, en-1
list for active service, get together and
do much more than we are doing to
obtain the necessary training for home
defence, and It muy be for active ser-
vice later on.   Who can tell what the
future may hold?
Practically every other town in the i
country as large as this one and many
of the smaller ones liave done fur
more ln this respect than we have
Let us in Cranbrook assume our re-
BponsiblHties in this respect.
Yours truly,
W. A. Nisbet.    |

To the Editor ol the Globe: To play
the role of an alarmist Is not a very
patriotic thing to do at any time, nnd
especially at a time of tension like the
present. Nevertheless, It is just possible, In our effort to maintain a calm
face and save our people from unnecessary worry thut we are overdoing our part, and through false assurance drifting perilously near to
dwelling In a fool's paradise.
The speech of George Moore, of Detroit, reported tn the papers on August 18th, though Intended us a warning to the people of the United States,
contains an even more serious warning to the people of Canada.
He declares: (1) That there are
2,500,000 German and Austrian reservists now in the United States who
are naturalized; (2) that these are
subject to the Kaiser, and report regularly to the German consuls
throughout thc United States; (3) that
the German government lias purchased ln the United States vast quantities of munitions, "much more than
the United States government has
purchased for its own use since the
outbreak of war;" (4) tliat these munitions have not been shipped away, but
are now stored somewhere In the
United States, nnd (6) that in nny of
tbe big cities of the United States
(e.g., Buffalo, Detroit, St. Paul, or
Minneapolis, etc.) "within forty-eight
hours, on an order from the Kaiser."
a division of reservists could be mobilized and be ready for war.
Mr. Moore is apparently a responsible man. and speaks of what hc
knows.   Assuming that he Is approxi
mately correct, ts not the situation for
Cunadu oven more serious than for the
United States? Suppose an order from
the Kaiser came for these reservists
to invade Canada, what is there to
prevent a division or two from Invading Canada either ln the Niagara Peninsula or tn the peninsula of Essex
aud Kent? The assistance of the
United States government may be
eliminated as no account, since for the
time being, as Mr. Moore points out,
the Invaders would bo more powerful
than any force which the United States
government could bring to bear upon
them. They would bo masters of the
situation until tliey had obtained u
firm rooting In Canada. The United
States being thus incapable or preventing such an attack upon Canada,
what means have we In Canada »r repelling Bticl) an attack'.1 We arc told
Hint there are about 70,000 men In
training in (ids country. Hut those
are strung out iu a thin line all (he
way from Halifax to Vancouver, aud
not over -abundantly equipped If
rumor Is to be credited. Al either
Nlllgfttti or Detroit a division (let uh
say 30,000 men) of these reservists,
fully equipped with the munitions
now secretly stored in the United
States, could easily overwhelm any
ami every force that we could Immediately bring against them. Once in
possession of either or these two rich
peninsulas, they, utter the manner of
tin* Teutons, would live off the country, and it any opposition were offered by the Inhabitants we would be
treated to an experience of (ierman
"frightfulness," We would then know
what Belgium lias gone through.
Assuming, as I said, that the statements of Mr. George H. Moore are
approximately correct, I maintain that
the position of Canada is perilous aud
no good purpose can be served by
hiding or ignoring the situation. To
be ready tor such an emergency as
may bo forced upon us, we ought to
enroll all the men in the country who
are capable of fighting and begin
their training without delay, for untrained men would be useless against
the Teuton reservists in the United
States, who are all thoroughly versed
in the art of wnr. In the meantime,
should not all our militia regiments
be summoned to the colors nnd fully
equipped and supplied with munitions. The time to do this is before,
not after, Invasion takes place. Moreover, such a mobilization would be the
very best preventive.
I am writing this letter with full
sense of responsibility, but also with
grave concern for the peril we seem
to be in from our apparent uprepar-
edness, and also in the twofold hope
that, on tlie one hand, the inllltia department will tuke. if it Is not now
taking, steps to guard our homes efficiently from invasion In this southern
district, and, on the other, that our
young men will at once enroll themselves by tens of thousands for military training, sn that they may be prepared to meet tho enemy at the gate
should he venture to Invade this fair
land. Believe me, yours faithfully,
David Williams,
Bishop of Huron.

Kir: on Tuesday. 24th Instnnt, I had
tin* misfortune to bo one of the pus*
Bengors ou tho train running from
Cranbrook to Klmberloj I hi train
loaves at 7 a.m. and Is di i to n uch
Kimberley about S.SO [9.05 according
to schedule, when train leaves Cranbrook at 7.80) us it was heavier than
usual Kimberley wus not reni lied until 1.15 p.m.
Considerable time was lost between
Crunbrook and Wycliffe, At Wycllffo
the freight unloaded would havo dono
Justice to a full cur, thereby suing
another long wait while the unloading
was taking place,
Leaving Wycllffo the train proceeded up the hill— part way then
had to wait until the logging train of
the Staples Lumber company came to
the rescue and pushed tlte mixed
freight and passenger up tli" line until
they readied their own .tracks (Stnples
logging line). After tlie train left the
Marysville branch the train crew saw
fit to proceed up the lino us far as
Kimberley with a load of i mpty ore
iars. leaving among other empties
the passenger coach with the Ill-fated
travellers who were already three
hours late.
In course ot time the englno returned and took passenger conch and
freight cars to Kimberley, arriving
four and one half hours lati. after running over a line 10.3 miles long.
Tho object of this publicity is to
make known the fact that the residents of tills brancll Hue would appreciate a daily train. Palling this, we
would crave at least a reasonable passenger service. When the lumber
mills and mines nro us busy as they
are now anil passengers an' more
plentiful than before It is no more
than Is due us.
