Fort Steele, Jan. 20.—J. A. Harvey tried to Steal away Irom Dr.
King ami arranged for a secret meeting ol his laitliiul henchmen at Fort
Steele to-night, where he might explain the wickedness ot the Liberals
who lately are unearthing so much
ot the crookedness uf the McBride*
llawtlionithwaite coalition in general, and the unscrupulous methods
ol the chief commissioner, Mr.
Green, in particular. Hut the
people nl th'.s place kmow Mr. Harvey's record ami methods most
thoroughly ami the many supporters
ol Or. Kin**, hero are always on the
alert to destroy the effect ol Harvey's eflbrts to strengthen his grip
Upon the throat ul South East Koo-
u-nay, nnd learning ol his plans,
through the indiscretion ol a Kelly
sup|K»itn, they decided to attend the
meeting if permitted and if possible
hoar his views upon the m:ent disclosures ol corruption ol the government. Accordingly, several old-
timers ol tho St. Marys valley and
Fort Steele came Into town just in
time to be present as the meeting
This miscarriage of his plans so upset Mr. Harvey thai he lost-Ms temper ami instead ol having a Harvey
love-feast at his old homo and a consoling exchange of those sympathies
thai the miserable rely upon gaining
by liav.ng companions in despair, he
was stung to a rajre and like a leopard bearded in his lair, he attempted to tight hack. Disregarding
Dr. King's customary lair oITers to
birth Kelly and Harvey he refused to
reciprocate to-night hy allowing -
carpenter from Marysville (who was
called upon to represent Dr. King)
to criticise his (Harvey's) speech.
He consented to allow the representative of Dr. King to talk fur a few
minutes before either Mr, Thompson
or Harvey himself had spoken.
This display of cowardice on the
part of two lawyers, who were afraid
lo allow an ordinary Liberal workingman an opportunity to criticise
their speech, gave Harvey's cause a
bad chill The audience showed
their appreciation of this by giving
Huchcroft an attentive hearing. As
he outlined Dr. King's legislative
record and gave a description of the
government's mal-adminislralions, he
showed that had he been given a
chance ol criticising tho speech of
the Czar ol South East Kootenay, he
would have turned that gentleman':;
meeting for only Conservatives into a
Liberal rally. Tbe speaker did not
attempt to give all the reasons for
Dr. King's return as the representative ot this district, but gave the
government a hard knock hy proving
that McBride and Carter-Cotton were
aware of the methods adopted by Mr.
Green while acting as chief commissioner of lands and works, and, after
limling that the truth was being
learned, bad admitted the guilt ot
the whole cabinet. He then asked
Mr. Harvey to explain how the electors of Cranbrook district could vote
for Harvey or Kelly in the face ol
these charges, which have been admitted as true.
Mr. Kelly's representative was a
Mr. Macdonald, who made his first
appearance before uu audience in
this electoral district. His argument was altogether different from
Leheney's or Mr. Sam Macdonald's
and shows that Kelly realizes he
must cut out all appearances; of
llawthorntliwaiteism in older to
draw many votes Irom Dr. King.
Mr. Thompson, a Cranbrook lawyer,
and one of the men who wire used
lo magnify the strength of Mr. Harvey at the hitter's convention, loi*
lowed in» talk of about hall an
hour, devoting himself lo personal
Then came the much Indignant Harvey, with an eighty minute cr.ticism
of Huchcroft and a harangue on the
North Atlantic Trailing company, the
Red Line Disenfranehisement In Manitoba and a pitiful plea for a high
duly on lumber. This punishment
became so exasperating, whin Harvey got io his pipe dream ol lumber
jacks pre-empting cut-out timber
limits, paying licenses for them and
acting as fire wardens for twenty
years in order to get second growth
of lack pine, that one old timer here
exclaimed, "That's a novelty."
Harvey being excited thought he
said, "All Ihe same as Arbor day,"
aud grasping for Ideas exclaimed,
"Yes, it wotiW be somewhat like the
sehintl hoys' Arbor day," nt which
the audience caught the ridiculous—
and laughed at Harvey's expense. His
temper then got beyond his control
and he ordered the ejectment of Mr.
Burns, a respecled rancher. From
this on he talked at random and the
meeting broke up with three cheers
for Dr. King.
The effect of this Harvey fiasco Is
noliceable. The thinking voters are
wondering what Harvey and Thompson were afraid of anil why Harvey
did not a Mempt I o refute the
charges against his party If an
ordinary carpenter can so terrify him
what would he he able to accomplish
if up against such men as Dr. King
nnd .1. A. Macdonald. This Harvey
frost is bringing many thinking Conservatives Into the Liberal camp.
Philadelphia, Jan. 29.—A lire which
started with an explosion iu the
paint shops destroyed one section oi
the big Baldwin Locomotive Works
to-night, entailing a loss of Jl.UUU,-
000. covered by insurance. The j
destroyed building was about 175 by
150 feet. About 1,000 men are employed in the burned building which
was five stories high, the pipe bend-!
in-g department on tlie first floor, the]
jacketing or sheet iron department
on the second floor, a metal pattern
store room and brass fitting room on
the third, the paint shop and cab
liuishin-g departments and puiul store
room on the fourth and the drafting
and designing room on tlie fifth. The
lire was discovered in Uie cast end
of the building adjoining the main
ollice building, a few minutes before
six o'clock when the workmen were
preparing to leave, and though the
flames spread rapidly, all men were
able to get out ol the building safely. Shortly after the fire started,
the upper portion of Uie wall on
Spring Garden street fell into the
street and one fireman and three
workmen were caught by the fulling
bricks but fortunately received onlv
very slight injuries. The firemen,
With the assistance of the fire put-
rol Irom the plant, succeeded in getting ihe Humes under control within
nn hour after it was discovered.
The Baldwin Locomotive works is
the largest industrial plant in the
t'nited States and employs 18,000
men in this city and nearly 10,000
In departments at Lewis-ton and
other places. C. W. Covers, president of Burnham, William 6: Company, which operates the Baldwin
plant, said that the 1000 men employed in the burned building would
Immediately be put to work in other
departments, The fire, he said,
would uot greatly hinder work, as tho
departments destroyed are duplicated in other parts ol tbe plant.
A. M. AND P. M.
Here is an excellent catch: Ingenuously ask any friend or acquaintance the meaning of a. m. and p. m.
You will receive some such answer
as "Why, morning and afternoon,"
or "Before dinner and after dinner,"
or "Up to 12 o'clock high noon and
after 12 high noon," or "From midnight to noon and from noon to
midnight," or "Ante meridian and
post meredian; before and after
noon." It is a conservative wager
that every one to whom the question
is put will stake his happiness on the
word meredian, while the correct
word is meridiem. Ante morediem
and post mcredlem are abbreviated
to a. m. and p. m.

Tin: Vancouver World bay published
i long ai'tide under heavy head
lines, alleging tluit Robert Green,
while commissioner ol lands anu
works, accepted a gift ol t37,U00 in
stock in a .syndicate formed tor exploring lands in the north. The
World persists that it has the facts,
and it is alleged that Premier Mv-
Uride says that since no favors were
shown by the department, the acceptance of a block of stock by Mr.
Green from bis old friend Sir Uaron,
was legitimate in every way. Mr.
Green makes a denial of any misdeed
connected with the matter, and says
that be never took any of the stock
lor himself. Mr. Green's denial and
Mr. McBrtde's statement are given
herewith. It is strange, however,
that such serious charges as these
should follow the .sudden resignation
of Mr. Green. For the sake of the
fair name of the province, it is to be
hoped that the matter cau be cleared
up iu a manner satisfactory to everyone.
Vancouver, Jan. 20'.—Premier McBride, speaking last night ou behalf
of Hon. K. L. Carter-Cotton at Central Park, said that, from his point
ot view, there was nothing questionable iu It. h\ trreen's accepting a
present of stock from bis friend, Sir
Adolpli Caron, He made this remark in reply to J. A. Russell, who
poke on behalf of Weart, the Liberal candidate, and who drew tlie
premier's attention to the World's
disclosures. The premier related
his story about Carou's company
not having received any lands in the
Peace River country;. That question, was not, of course, the one
raised by the World. The premier
claimed that everything Green bad
done was in accordance with law.
Hon. Wm. Mausan, provincial secretary, when shown AlcUride's statement, was thunderstruck and insisted
that it could noL be otherwise than a
typographical error. As a result ol
the publication of the alleged scandal,
Burns aud Walkem, attorneys for R.
F. Green, this afternoon issued a
writ iti a libel suit against the
World. No stated damages are
claimed nor has a bill of particulars
been filed.
Locally nothing is being talked
about in political circles but the
Green story, ll is generally thought)
il is the last nail in tlie Conservative colli ii aud a Liberal victory is
assured in the face of the exposure
of such actions. The libel suit is
looked on as a mete make shift to
present a face before the election.
Advices bave been received from
Hazel ton Ibut the ballot boxes for
that district have mysteriously Ihth
delayed in shipment until it is feared
they cannot be delivered by election
day. This would prevent the vote iu
a .section winch is undoubtedly
Liberal, owing lo the many lands

Local betting on the election has
begun in earnest. Two even wagers

the Liberals Would have more seats

R. F. Green's answer to the direct
and specific charge ol corruption
made against him by the Vancouver
World, is reproduced below exactly
as it appeared yesterday in his own
organ, save that certain sentences aro
capitalized for tbe sake of emphasis:
Arrowhead, B. C, .Ian. 2f».—1 arrived here to-day (rom Trout Lake
and for the lirst time saw copies ot
the Vancouver World containing the
infamous charges against me. I reply that I do not hold nor have I
ever held any stock in the Transcontinental Exploration syndicate either
hy myself or through any other person, and Neil F. MacKay does not
hold, nor has he ever held any stock
in trust for me or upon any understanding direct or indirect, whereby
1 was to receive any benefit there-
J was never charged by any solid-
1 tors before the executive with having
been bribed by Sir A. P. Caron, or
anyone else to issue any coal licenses or leases to the said syndicate, or to the said A. P. Caron,
or his associates as the records of
tiie Lands and Works department will
show. No licenses or leases covering lands in the Pine River district
have ever been granted to the syndicate, or to A. P. Caron, or to anyone else.
Caron and his associates applied for
such licenses but their application
was refused on the ground that the
government would not deal with
lands in that district until the Dominion government had completed
their selection of the 3,500,01)0 acres
granted it by the settlers act. No
promise, direct or indirect, that such
licenses would be granted was ever
made to them, and no licenses have
ever been granted though they were
repeatedly applied for.
The applications were dealt with in
exactly the same manner as were all
applications made by others for
licenses over lands in that district
and all were refused. Prior to making the above applications Caron and
his associates applied tor, as far as
1 can remember, about a half dozen
coal licenses over lands In tlie
Telqua valley. These lands were
open to location, the requirement*! ot
tlie act were complied with and
licenses were granted to them, as
well as to other parties, over lands
in that valley. These licenses were
issued In strict accordance witb the
act. I state most emphatically that
no favumor concession of any kind
whatever was ever granted by the
government or myself or the lands
and works department to Caron
or his associates or the syndicate.
They only received what they were
entitled to receive and alt licenses to
which they were not entitled were refused them in the same way as others
were refused.
After the licenses in the Tetfjua
valley were granted and before the
applications for licenses in the Pine
River districts were before tlie department, CARON, whom I knew
very well, WROTE ME, SAYING HE
not wish any ot the stock. Mr.
Mackav, then secretary to the premier, was in my office when I received
the letter. I SHOWED IT TO HIM
SAYING THAT I did not want the
stock and that IF HE CARED TO
remarking that while I did not consider it of much value that it possibly might be worth something to
him some day. He signified his willingness to take the stock and I
The records ol the lands and works
will show conclusively that all transactions with Caron were carried out
in strict, accordance with the act.
The lirst intimation I ever had that
Cuppage was a director of the company, was when I saw it in the
World. I knew absolutely nothing
of what stock he holds or how he acquired it.

Moyie, Jan. 211.—The Liberals of
Moyio heir) a most euthusiasiic meeting on Friday nibht, the principal
speaker being Dr. J. II. King, the
Liberal candidate, Mr. Lehency, the
Socialist orator, W. H. Clayton and
!■'. E. Simpson also spoke, it. Campbell presided and the great crowd
present remained until Dr. King closed the meeting with his second
speech. The doctor was iu line lorm
null in no campaign has be made a
mote telling speech. Facing an
audience that was composed cliielly
ol miners whose secretary, Thomas
Kelly, is the labor candidate, the
doctor reviewed his work in parliament mid stated that tor the good ol
the province   and the   good of    Ulis
j district he had dune all in his power.
He scored heavily against the Mc-
llride government    when    he showed
I that this district had been rclused
nileqiiaie appropriations although!
there was a revenue going into the
provincial treasury Irom the Cran-
brook district ol more than $175,000
a year straight Irom the shoulder.
Dr. King showed that the bringing
out ol a third candidate in this district was the result ol the McBride-
Hiiwthornthwaile combination arrangement, made last summer, and
that tliey hoped that every vote secured lor the candidate ol the Conservative-Socialist, alliance would
tend to weaken the chances of Uie
Liberal candidate. At the close of
the meeting it was easily seen that
the doctor, by his honest, manly
course, had made many new Irtends
in the auilimce.
The government's policy is its record.
That record spells high taxes;
Neglect ol roads and trails;
Monstrous school act;
Neglect to protect our forests;
Neglect to compile and furnish information about public lands in aid
ol settlement;
Broken promises to deal with railway situation after proclaiming neces.
sity for action;
Back dour method ol dealing;
A barefaced attempt on the premier's part to make better terms a
party i(sue anil elect ion cry in lace
of what took place in the bouse;
Subservency to a railway corporation evidenced by an unsuccessful attempt to give it a million and a
half in cash, and an actual grant oi
UtlU.illlO acres of public lands and a
refusal to make it pay its tales; and
An unnatural alliance with the declared enemies ol constitution;
Our policy is denned by our stand
ou the measures brought before the
house, plus our aims regarding other
measures, which cannot be introduced by an opposition, but only by
the government, which are:
The creation ol a department oi
labor and immigration, subjects too
important to be lelt as at present
without shape or provincial guidance
to guard us against undesirable immigrants;
Full inquiry into water records and
irrigation and while protecting ptior
rights providing lor a wider distribution of water available for irrigation;
An adequate system ol lorest protection;
Surveys of crown lands available
lor settlement, uud where practicable, parceling them into small
holdings as part ol an iiumigratiuu
Keport ol school account and return to a system ot state education;
Revision of the terms of placer and
dredging leases, and lessening the
danger ol inadvertent forfeiture;
No alliance with those' revolutionists who would destroy our system
oi government and haul down our
Hag, but on the contrary to co-operate with that great body of labor
which would reform abuses iu a constitutional way.
Cranbrook, Jan. 36.—The campaign
sheet issued in Nelson by Conservative money, has no weight in East
Kootenay politics. The screed published in this morning's paper Irom
tbe pen of tlie secretary ol the Cranbrook Conservative committee, stating that Dr. King has admitted defeat, Is ridiculed by Conservatives,
Liberals and Laborites alike in this
community. Those familiar with
the situation fully appreciate the fact,
Unit Dr. King Is making a great
campaign, that he is gaining ground
every day, and that J. A. Harvey,
the Conservative candidate, is going
to have a hard fight to save his deposit. The desperate situation ol
the Conservative party In this district is evinced by such dispicahle
tactics as telegrams like those
term! to above Irom this point,
emanating directly from the Conservative committee rooms anil paid lur
J Irom    the   Conservative    campaign
, money Unit is being distributed over
I this district.
The    supporters ot Dr. King    are
'Working like sure winners. They
have faith    in their cause and   their
I candidate, and    are urged on to re-
I ncwed efforts by the assurance ol a
glorious victory. Perlect harmony
prevails and the committee rooms
arc   crowded   each night    with cn-
I tliuslastic workers. The attack upon Frank Angers, the eloquent French
Canadian, is made lor the name reason, as the attack upon Mr. Mclnnes, simply because Mr. Angers is a
powerful factor in the movement Mint
insures success for Dr. King. The
Conservatives tried to secure dls Invaluable services, but he is strongly
entrenched in the principles of the
Liberal party and was glad of the
opportunity to lend his assistance to
Dr. King.'

1 (The Vaacouvet World.)
Mr. McBride and his party of political (riends   are   engaged in tellinp;
the   people   ol the Interior that   the
Liberals,   if they   .should     get   into
power, will Immediately arrange   to
convey to the    (i. T. 1J. 15,000 acres
ol land per mile as a subsidy lur constructing  then   main line  to     Kaien
island.        The accusation is intended
| as a counter-irritant, a sort ol set
i oti    to the generous treatment that
I company received at the hands of Mr.
j McBride.     Ho conveyed to Anderson
(and    Anderson    the   waterfront   at
Kaien island, and ten thousand acres
of excellent   land for towiisite    pin
poses.      it is true   the government
did decline   to rive the 0. T, P.   a
land subsidy and     we have Bearohod
the records    ol the day lor evidence
to show that their declination   met
with  the   disapproval  ol   the opposition   in   the  local    house  or   the  opposition press,     Ou     the contrary,
they show that Mr. Morse', proposal
was turned   ilown with the approval
of all parlies.     Hut it Is    worthy ol
remark   that    while tin* government
refused (ami  most proporly) to subsidize the    (l.  T.  P.,  Ihey did     not
.scruple to confirm the char tor ol the
Kilama.it   Hazel ton   company   wilh
subsidies of $660,000 ami tho Tlllpah
valley coal lands, and to contn
the conveyance of    that charier ami
the coal lands to the (1. T. P. hy the
company.   -This action was taken on
the very date    upon which the     act
confirming     ihe charter passed    the
house.       The ink on the lieutenant-
governor's signature was scarcely, dry-
when tho government sinned the conveyance.       Why this indecent haste?
Why this    hurry to   enrich     certain
members of     the     house   and their
friemls, who profited to lhc extent of
$75,000 by the sale?       The company
was composed of men who did    not
possess the means to build the    line
and who    never  meant    to build it.
They secured the charter and its appendage :or the purpose of sale,     No
secret    was  made of the    tact that
they did not intend to undertake construction    work.     Mr.    Clifford,   a
staunch supporter of the government
and a member of the house, was  one
of the syndicate, if such it   can   be
called,     who   profited hy the   sale.
No one   blamed     the syndicate   for
making what they could, although tho
appearance of   Mr. Clifford's     mime
among the beneficiaries    is a suspicious circumstance and Indicates   that.
he approached very near, if he     did
not violate the independence ol  parliament act.    But the action of   the
government cannot be palliated     or
excused.    They had refused to   grant
subsidy for a railway on   Queen
Charlotte islands; had refused to give
tbe O. ,T.    P. a land subsidy;     had
thrown    an obstacle in the way    of
the construction    of the Midway and
Vernon road; had    sold ten thousand
acres of government land for $10,000,
while,  "Lo, the poor Indian,"    had
received   $75,000    for ten     thousand
acres of inferior land adjoining    the
government's    ten     thousand acres.
But strangest of all, thev hud agreed
to give the C, P. R. company «' B00,-
000 for building a     line of railway
from Silence's   Bridge to Nicola valley, a line which the company afterward built With no subsidy at all!
The premier has published the correspondence between the government
and Mr. Morse, in which the latter
makes application for land subsidies
and the premier audaciously says
that had the Liberals been in power
they would have acceded to Mr
Morse's demands. The Liberals are
willing to be tried by their record.
There is no reason to .suppose that
they would have given Mr, Morse
a single acre; but there is every
reason to believe that it* ihe government had not been closely watched
by the Liberals they would have
given tbe whole ol the northern
country to Mr, Morse. Their policy
in permitting the Kitamaal railway
company to sell their charier witb
the subsidy attached, and denying Uie
right io sell to the Mldway-Vernon
toad, are evidence of their evil intentions. Their conduct with respect to the Speuce's Bridge railway
subsidy shows what they were prepared to do had they not been retrained by the fear of defeat by
their opponents In the house, while
tlte corruption of the Kaien island
transaction  "smells  to heaven."
the Yukon Liberal association of
November 10 was read, stating that
in its opinion Mclnnes had in his
two years' rule conducted affairs in
the Yukon in a conscientious and
businesslike manner, and created new
confidence with the people. A direction was given that the resolution
he forwarded to Ottawa as an expression ol confidence in Mclnnes. An
editorial irom the Dally Alaskan,
published at Skagway, in which the
rule of Mclnnes was praised as in
every way worthy and to the credit
of the nation he represented, followed. Finally, amid a burst of cheers,
which rose one after another, Mclnnes produced the autograph letter
from Sir Wilfrid Laurier accepting his
resignation in which the premier
"I desire in convey to you the sincere appreciation which the government feels at the manner in which
you have discharged your dittos in
the important position which has
been entrusted in you."
"II this was not enough to testify
of my work," added Mclnnes, "I

enthusiasm at the banquet tendered

uumistakeable proof which 1 am
proud to show to you." He explained that when he went to the
Yukon be found several parties enjoying unusual privileges, and, in pursuit of fair and honest treatment of
ait, he trod on their toes. Enrag-
raged at this treatment, they formulated a petition for his removal and
sent it to Sir Wilfrid Laurier under
the name of the "Liberal Association." Sir Wilfrid Laurier returned
the petition to him. Astounded, he
consulted the leaders of the association and at once was told that it
never considered any such petition
and that its sending was au imposition. A resolution of the territorial
association passed in November last
year was then read, reciting that it
had come to the knowledge of the
association that a petition fin its
name had been sent to Sir Wilfrid
Laurier asking for Mclnnes' removal.
Such action was declared as "never
authorized, and the association regrets that its good name was used in
such unwarranted manner." It absolutely repudiated the document and
expressed the highest degree of confidence in the honestv and justice of
the Mclnnes* government.
Following hearty cheers of approval, tbe tmt ol the resolution  of
(Victoria Times.)
We admit it is rather disconcerting
to he told that the Times alone is
responsible for the militant spirit
ing displayed by the Socialists under
the leadership of Comrade Hawthornthwaite. Doubtless it will be of no
avail to point out that the people
who display their contempt for our
political institutions, and even ot the
fountain-head from which we derive
our individual freedom and liberty,
hy clapping on their headgear when
the National Anthem is being sung
hy loyal citizens, have not been encouraged by us. They have not obtained the resources which enabled
them to place a score or more of
candidates in the field and upon
which they are conducting a very
strenuous campaign from the Times
or from the cause the Times advocates. They are not in alliance with
the Liberal party, but with the degenerate wing of the Conservative
party led by Premier McBride. They
are not in the fight to assist the
Liberal party, but with the hope ot
weakening it and malting the connec-
lion which has been so profitable to
their leaders during the past throe
years sure for another term. And it Is
particularly noticeable that none of
the government organs have a word
lo say in condemnation of the alleged aims and principles of the red
revolutionists. The    government
press, when it notices the vagaries
^f the auxiliaries or Premier McBride at all, invariably apologizes
for them and attempts extenuation.
t probably realizes now that the
public have reached accurate conclu-
' ns respecting the relationship between Premier McBride and his revolutionary lieutenant. The events of
three sessions of the legislature have
demonstrated that there .*ce hut two
parties appealing for the confidence
of the people of the province, the
Socialist-Conservative parly and the
Liberal party. The partnership ot
the I wo sections of the government
party has been scaled and cannot be
broken. This consummation has
had tho natural effect, of arraying tlie
political elements solidly upon one
side or the other. Consequently the
alliance, instead of having the effect
designed of weakening the Liberal
party, has solidified and strengthened it, It enters as a unit, into tlie
contest. The government forces are
divided as McBride Conservatives and
Hawthornthwaite Socialists. The
one must inevitably sap the strength
o[ the other—it there be any vitality
in either to draw from, which . Is
doubtful when the revelations re-
pcctlhg the conditions which have
prevailed in the Lands and Works
Department, every one of which Comrade Hawthornthwaite, the self-appointed guardian of tbe public estate,
has approved and defended upon the
lloor of the legislature. Therefore,
it is not surprising that the government organs are in a panic and do
t know exactly what attitude to
assume in dealing with their incendiary allies.

A gentleman who was a Member of

Wednesday night that there was no
doubl In bis mind nboul Kelly being
n Socialist, or at least as to where
he would line up if he were elected.
The question of speakers came up
and Mr. Kelly Insisted that Mr.
Hawthornthwaito should be invited
by the committee, and Bald thai as
jar as lie was concerned he wanted
Mr. Hawthornthwaito and no one
else. This is a matter of record in
Movie and the member, of the committee who told the Herald -a ill
vouch for It. In fact it is ' well
known    nit over    the district    that
should   Mr.   Kellv  be elected   it  would
be cons id c nil a UawthocnUiwaHo
victory, if there had been a chance

candidate would havo been nomlimt-

shrewd politician, and after bis trip
through tins district last summer he
saw that BUCh a move would he fatal

support of the labor men iti Ihe face
of ili.it fact? If the leaders nf the labor party in
this district were playing the game

ol tbe "roarin" game In Cranbrook
aie at leisure to cultivate the
acquaintance.ol their families. Notwithstanding the lact that the

were serious drawbacks, the bonspiel was a decided success Irom
start to finish, and at the close the
visitors departed with words ot high
praise for generous treatment accorded them by the citizens ol Cranbrook.
The last of the finals were played
Saturday and the finish found Nelson
carrying off the honors with five ol
the eight cups competed for, namely:
The Urund Challenge, the B. C. Curling, tlie Oliver, the Hudson's Bay

was second with two cups to her
credit, the Walborville and the

While there will doubtless be a few

relief that we are now at the close of
the political campaign. Never before has Wardner been so saturated
with politics, and whatever the result the calm, which we hope will
succeed the storm, will be a refreshing change.

Young man, did you ever think
that It Is not manly' or noble to
make yourself appear tough? If you

enough without your trying to make
it so prominent.' A gentleman is al-

Is a strange statement, but it. is so.
A girl will go on the streets with n

he won't go with her. We wish our

whom they go with as the boys are.
Be as careful to keep the weeds out
of the minds of your children as von
are to keep them out of vour garden. But remember something will

gentlemen, it seems to us thev would
make a greater effort than they do
to avoid evil deeds ami acts. A
greater part of the pleasures of this
life, to Parents, is found in the success and welfare of their children
going out of their home. And much
of the misery is caused by waywardness and misdeeds of sons nnd daughters.

rate. No young man with any self-
respect will'content himself with aspiring tn no higher reputation than
that of a chronic loafer and a store

the higher faculties of the mind as
inactivity; and no Inactivity is so

We have great respect for the
woman who knows bow to spare
herself, tor the one who knows when
she has enough. We have respect
for the one who has the courage to
say, "I am not strong enough to sew
for the heathen and do my home
duties also, and my home is' first,"
ami who dares set in her house and
see others conduct sewing societies.
This is no plea for idleness, or for
selfishness that is like a ranker to the
soul, only a plea for a knowledge ot
one's own powers and limitations, for,
a courage according to the convictions, tor a judgment T hn t is en-
lightietriNi and generous, not only
towards others but towards herself.
It is the daily life that tests us,
the manner of men we are. It is
not our prayers, it is not our profession, but it is the tone ot daily
intercourse and conduct that decides
how we stand. The little homely
graces; the cheerful, evcrv-dav amei>
ities; the Christ-like spirit uttering
itself, not so much in conscience act
as in an unconscious influence; uot so
much In deed as in that subtle aroma
which, without name, excludes from
the saintly soul, to equals nnd inferiors, to agreeable and disagreeable, to rich, poor, ignorant, to
young, to old; bearing burdens; accepting crosses; seeking no great
thing to do, content to put sell by
and to a servant of the lowest,—these
are fruits of one mot—fruits that
none ran counterfeit.
We recently spent a pleasant evening with an nged couple, and what
added 1n the pleasantness wns the
fart that Although this couple was
basking.in the sunset, of a well spent
life, they were as devoted to each
other as when the "honeymoon" first
shown in their pathway. We could
not hut compliment our friend upon
his devotion to his aged companion,
and in reply he said to us, "You
mistake me it you think age has
blotted nut my heart. Though silver hair falls over a brow all furrowed, yet I am a lover still. I
love all nature, and I love von aged
dame. Look at her. Her face is
careworn, -but it has ever held a
smile for me. Often have I shared
the same bitter cup with her, and so
shared, id seems almost sweet.
Years of sickness have stolen the
freshness of life; but like the faded
rose, the perfume of her love is richer than when fit the full bloom of
youth and maturity. Together we
have wept over graves. Through
sunshine and storm we have clung
t together, and now she sits with her
knitting, her cap quaintly frilled, the
old style kerchief crossed white and

To   the    Editor    of   the   Cranhrook
Dear Sir: Would you kindly insert
the following in your next edition of
the Cranhrook Herald:
lu order to remove a false impression which serins to have gotten
abroad with regard to our late pastor's (Rev. B. Goodfieid) removal
from Cranbrook, we would say that
when Mr. Ooodfield resigned, everything possible was done by the deacons ami members of tlie church to
persuade Mr. Ooodfield to reconsider
his resignation, but as Mr. Ooodfield
bad already accepted a call to the
Baptist church at Red Deer, we were
compelled, as there was no other
alternative, to accept his resignation;
Never was a man loved and respected
as wc love and respect Mr. Ooodfield. We fully appreciated his sterling worth, his noble character, his
fearlessness in preaching against
those which are evil in the sight of
Ood. His work* among the camps
has been blessed by God, and has
also been appreciated by the hoys
of the camps in a substantial manner, one camp just lately presented;
him with a purse of $8.1.00. This
is just one instance and we could
enumerate others, but space forbids.
Mr. Goodfield's reasons tor leaving
were that his health has failed late*,
ly, lie feels also that God has called
him to the prairie and like a true
disciple of Jesus Christ he must
answer that call.
On Sunday Mr. Goodfieid preached!
his farewell" sermon and a large congregation listened to au eloquent
sermon preached from the text in
Matthew 7, 13: "Enter ye in at
the straight, gate, for wide is the
gate ami broad is the way that
leadeth to destruction."
On Monday evening a farewell
gathering was held at the home ot
Mr. and Mrs. J. Woodman, about
forty being present, and a very enjoyable time was spent. After refreshments bad been served Mr.
Woodman voiced the sent intents of
all, when in n few words he expressed the keen regret and sorrow we
11 felt to see Mr. Ooodfield going out)
from amongst us. He wished Mr.
Ooodfield God-speed, and called for
that well known hvmn "Ood be
With You Till We ' Meet Again,"
which was sung with great feeling.
In losing Mr. Ooodfield we feel that
we have lost a really consecrated
man who thought not of himself but
of the work to which he has been

REFUSED   TO   CLOSE    FOR      4
Zam-Buk Healed Them Inside    Two
Have you some eruption, or sore;
or ulcer, or wound, on any part of
your body which has hitherto refused
to close, no matter how treated? It
so, that is a case for Zam-Buk, the
great herbal balm. The herbal saps
and essences in this balm are so
powerful that tbey can heal the
worst cases of chronic sores, ulcers',
blood poison and skin diseases. Here
aie proofs of this:
Mrs. W. II. Taylor, of North Bay,
Out., says: "1 bad a scaly spot as
big as a cent piece on my (ace. 1
had it (or four years, and hardly a
night during that time went by but
what 1 applied cold cream, or some
ointment or other, but it would always be there. 1 recently applied
Zum-Buk, and in about u week's time
the spot hud disappeared completely.
1 cannot thank you enough for your
remedy, and 1 tell everyone to be
sure and keep Zam-Buk iu tlreii
Mrs. S. J. Iloldeu, of 343 West
Hannah St., Hamilton, says: "My
tittle girl had a running sore on her
leg which defied all treatment. I
applied Zam-Buk and in about a
week's time the wound was closed.
I have found Zam-Buk just as good
(or other skin troubles and injuries."
Mr. J. 11. Hamilton, of Tliombury,
says: "The first Zam-lluk 1 obtained was for a friend who had an obstinate sore on her temple. It had
been treated once or twice by a doctor, and would heal up for a short
time, hut would break out again.
Zam-Buk healed it permanently, and
it shows no sign whatever ol returning."
Similar grateful testimony is to
hand from men and women in all
parts of Canada. Zam-Buk is a sure
cure for all skin diseases and injuries,
such a (cuts, burns, bruises, eczema,
psoriasis, ulcers, scalp sores, cold
sores, chapped hands, itch, rashes,

Why Bileans Prove   so Beneficial.
A medical specialist states that
eight out of tea cases ol headache,
dizifoess, sallow complexion aud various ailments peculiar to women
for which be is consulted have their
origin in constipation. Although
this ailment iu very common
amongst both sexes, women appear
to be the greater sullerurs. Bileans
cure constipation by stimulating the
liver and regulating the bile flow.
Bile in the natural purgative of the
body. bileans regulate its secretion.
Mrs. S. E. Baldwin, of 38 St. Paul
St., Toronto, says: "1 have taken
Bileans for constipation and dizziness
and found most satisfactory results.
Btfeans do not cause any griping,
and not only cure constipation but
also improve Un general health."
Mr. A. Monaghan, of Berlin, recently proved this vegetable remedy
in a similar way. He says: "For
many years 1 suffered from both constipation and piles. Nothing I have
ever tried is to be compared for bone-
lieial result to Bileans. They have
made me a different man, and if any
sufferer would like to ask me any
question on their operation ami
their value I will be glad to give
all the information I can."
Such is the result ot exhaustive
tests of Bileans. This great vegetable remedy is invaluable also for
sallow complexions (due to bile in
the blood), pimples, greasy, saliow
skin, and blood impurities generally.
Bileans also cure indigestion, debility, rheumatism, anemia, female ailments and irregularities "run-down
feelings," liver and kidney complaint, headache, sleeplessness, wind
spasms, palpitation, etc. All druggists sell at 60c. a box, or obtainable post free from the Bilean Co.
