Word came to the city on Thursday of a drowning accident which
took place at Waldo on Wednesday,
by which, the little six year old
daughter of Mr. and Mra, Thos. Anderson lost her life by falling In the
Kootenay river. There were several witnesses of Uie tragedy, it Is understood, but none were able to swim,
and it was necessary to go down the
river a short distance for a boat. The
body was recovered very soon, but life
was found to be extinct. Mr. Ander-j

Coal dealers in tbe city on Thursday
received word from the coal company
nt Penile that the strike which has
been in progress there for some time
had heen settled, and they would be In
a position to quote prices on supplies
forthwith. Xo particulars were available as to the terms of settlement of
Uio difficulty, but If It Is true, It removes the only obstacle that has been
in the way of a big industrial forward
move that seems to be about to envelop the Kast Kootenay district. It
also makes the minds of a lot of ordinary peoplo easier, who were beginning to worry about their coal supply
this winter. With visible supplies
down to u low ebb, the resumption of
work at the mines should also mean a
-considerable Increase of freight traffic

Illy J.SK. In tho Lethbrldge Herald)
At the organization meeting or the
crow's Nest Uolf Association, hold at
Blalrmore In May, It was decided to
Irnld the first tournament over the
course of the Crauhrook Club. The
president. Chester Staples, of the Craubrook Club, has seen a lot of tournament uolf, particularly iu his college
days, and the details and running of
the meet aro being left to a great extent iu his hands and under hts direction.
He propoaes throwing the course
open for practice rounds and If possible team matches ou September 2nd
Tor the purpose of players familiarizing themselves with th£ Cranbrook
course. On tho morning of the llrd of
September a qualifying round medal
play, 18 holes. The first eight to qualify for the championship, und then the
balance will also be grouped into
Rights of eight according to their
scores in tlie qualifying round. Each
of the flights of eight players to pluy
down by match pluy. On the morning
of Labor Day the scmi-flnal» of all
groups to play, and in the afternoon
the finals, cleaning up the tournament.
with winners of each group being a
prize winner.
This plan assures everyone of at
least 36 holes of tournament gulf and
after the qualifying round being paired with players of practically the same
ability. This should mean many excellent matches. The plan gives every,'
golfer, no matter what his handicap,
a chance to distinguish himself In the
group he finds himself after the qualifying round. i
If u representative gathering of
Crow golfers attend, there van be lots
of golf supplied, as this plan lends itself to tlie pairing of the defeated
fours in each flight, playing down for
consolation prizes In their own flights.
The prizes outside the championship
will likely be golf balls or medals. It
should muke a very desirable three
days' outing, and those who ran afford
to take longer and make the trip by-
car will find golf courses all along the
route. MacLeod, Pincher Creek, Lund-
brcck, Blalrmore. Coleman, Pernie—
all have sporty courses and welcome
Blalrmore Bays that she will be
there with at least ten players. Practically the whole Fernie club will be
on band.   It looks like a good time.
Crnnbrook is iu B.C.   Nuff sed.
Mr. Staples lias asked anyone to offer suggestions, if reasonable, to make
the lirst Crow tournament a success.
The method of play suggested for
the tournament will likely be adopted
In one or both of Uie competitions still
to be played by the local members.

(Calgary Herald)
A. C, McDougall. former Calgary
alderman, returned to that city Wednesday from Klko. where bis firm,
McDougull-McNelll, Limited, has secured the contract for the erection of
u plant for tho manufacture of newsprint in lurge quantities. Tho complete undertaking, so .Air. McDougall
informed a Calgary Herald representative, culls for au expenditure of
about $13,000,000, and work on ihe lirst
unit, which will entail au outlay of
$3,500-000; bus already been started.
On the completion of this unit, tho
second will be started,
The whole project will lako about
three years and construction activities approximately 1,000 men will ho
employed. It was quite likely. .Mr
McDougall stated, that many of those
would he obtained In Calgary and that
thus the unemployment situation could
he helped since the Work would be
carried ou in tlie fall and winter ot
this year.
After the unit was completed 1,000
men would be engaged in its operation
and the finished plant would employ
ubout 3.000 men, or i .000 for each
Mr. McDougall said that each unit
would have a production capacity of
100 tons of newsprint a day or 300
tons when the three units were finished. This would make it, he believed, the largest^ newsprint manufactory in Canada.
Combined Canadian and American
capital was behind the enterprise but
Canadian directors would lie In the
majority on the board.
Limits had been seemed which ensured production for at least 30 years.

Ihe estimation of those who,
even after his campaign methods in the by-election, were prepared to believe he still had in
him Uie qualities that go to

In the heal of an election contest one is prepared to understand even a prime minister is
prone to let fall some utterances that in cooler circumstances would probably go unsaid. But several days after, to

tactless, bnl vindictive and

to proclaim from the housetops
that. Mr. Bowser was a discredited man within his own party.
In a convert ion free from any
suspicion of manipulation, he
won the leadership over such a
man as II. II. Stevens. It is
well for the party that two such
men could come up in a matter
of this kind, antl from the conduct of the convention subsequently, when all signs of differences were put away, it is evident that any rift in the inner
workings of the political parties
provincially does not exist in
the Conservative ranks.
The retention of Mr. Dowser
in the leadership indicates anew
that a man may he temporarily
overshadowed by calumny and
abuse, but unless there is proper foundation for it. he will
come again into a place in the
sun. He has made mistakes—
who hasn't? — but his experience in provincial affairs,
stretching over two decades,

(Grand Forks Gazette)
When Cranbrook voters elected Mr.
As a crl-
f Internal administration he should he useful If he overcomes the temptation to dwell on his
personal grievances with the Government.
So fur as the Government ls concerned, the loss of the Cranbrook seat
does uot affect Its standing In the new
House, being merely a set-off against
Ihe N'elson gain. Nor can the critics
of the Government claim the decision
to be a public reproof of Its policies.
The issue—despite ull effortB to thei
contrary—narrowed itself down to the)
personal grievance of Mr. Walllnger, j
In which he had a host of sympathizers
and supporters.
Mr, Wallinger's election ls being acclaimed by Mr. Bowser's friends as a
triumph for the Opposition leader, and
I'he Leader of the Opposition and
his supporters decided to turn the election into something like a court of appeal for Mr. Wa Mincer, and It will
have to be admitted thut a majority of
the voters consider the former Government Agenl at Cranbrook has been
harshly treated. On this account tbe
successful candidate is entitled to
place what value he choose upon thc
result nt yesterday's poll.
It cun be suid at tliis Juncture that
the campaign which has just beeu
brought to a close Is additional proof
of the fact thut human Interest and
parochialism in politics are just us
fashionable as ever. Matters relating
to broader Issues whlcb are of Importance to the people of British Columbia
as u whole were treated with scan) .
consideration. As a matter of fact j
the lust hours of the light saw tbe
Government's dismissal of Walllnger
on the one side and Mr. Taylor's promise of a courthouse on the other as the
paramount questions Involved. Human
interest triumphed over material considerations. That and nothing more
ls the only really significant factor In
the verdict. The Government is just
as well off as It was hefore the election.

In addition to completeness, buyers insist on real ecanmy in four
Important essentials. They demand low initial cost; low gasoline
consumption; low repair costs; and long tir. life. The new Chevrolet ....cells in these particulars. Twenty-five to thirty miles on a
gallon of gasoline is not uncommon. It c.cells i i oil economy as

The courtesy of the C. P. R. officials, which I have known and enjoyed for nearly 30 years, is the

affection in which the Prince df

The new development is the production of a new chemically pure Iron
from pyrrhotte, which is u complex ore
mined at the Sullivan Mines at Kim-,

electrolytic one for the manufacture
on a large scale of pure iron, whieh on
account of its purity is not readily

commercial field with practically an

sheets of great thickness and it resembles raw Iron in all respects, but it is
practically free from any impurities.

noticeable increase in the interest
taken in cow testing work, and one
result of the tour of the train, he
was convinced, will be that a very
large number nf dairymen will now
adopt this method and many others,
formerly doubters, are now convinced of the value of this system.
Lubrication, ignition and carburetor troubles were the chief matter-?
upon whit h farmers sought the assistance of Mr. Joseph-son in the
fa- . mechanics car. nnd he believed
that an unprecedented number of
power users benefited by brir.giir;

BANFF, nestling down among the mountains, ever
beautiful, and always interesting, was more than
ever bo when Their Excellencies the Governor-General
and Lady Byng spent a few days there recently, while
on their way west over the C. P. R. to the Pacific
Coast. It was natural that they should plan to stop
over for a quiet rest at this most delightful of Canada's
mountain resorts where the glories of the Rockies are
seen at their best. The occasion of the Vice-Regal
visit was made the more notable by the arrival in
Banff of about 600 Stoney Indians, who came to greet
Lord Byng, the Great White Chief, and to hold their
annual pony races and other sporta.
Their arrival in Banff was a dramatic affair. In
all the glories of ceremonial paint and feathers, they
rode silently down from the mountains In single file
to the new atone bridge that crosses the Bow River,
and there met the Governor, who reviewed them,
Later in the day exciting pony races were held,
and archery and other feats of eontests of skill ana
strength were held. Little stands «f rough boards
accommodated a crowd of on-lookere which Included
Lord and Lady Byng, * large aombes ei tourists and
the Indian squawi of varying ages from little girls to
comely maidens and old women, who displayed the
greatest interest in the prowess of their braves. At the
end of the day the prizes were distributed to the winners In the courtyard of Banff Springs Hotel, by Lady
Byng, and some of tho ladies of her party.
During the visit, Their Excellencies were delighted
hy ths attractions of the district. Lord Byng went for
sn early morning gallop every day over lha superb
bridle trails that lead In al."dlrectlona Into tha i

Head of Western Grocers, Ltd.,
After Tour of Brunches,
Makes Statement
Business will he temporarily revived
hy the big (-hop in the west this year,
but ihere will be no permanent stability established until things get back
to old time conditions in which real
values prevail, \V. P. Riley, president
of Western Grocers, Ltd., of Winnipeg,
who recently spent some time going
through the west looking over the
business of the local branches, states
at the conclusion of his tour.
Mr. Riley is convinced that only
thrift, rigid economy and a steady lowering of prices along all lines will
bring back prosperity. "Ii will probably take 30 years for Ihis country to
get back to a stable basis. I agree
with Babson that there will likely be a
period of declining prices over that
period." Mr. Riley said.
"The Americans took their loss nt a
gulp and are coming hack slowly. I
think conditions across the line are
improving much fuster than in Canada.
We In Canada preferred to hang on to
the old war prices. We weren't prepared to accept tlie decline. But before prosperity comes back, we'll have
to come down a whole lot," he continued. "We must get back to the old
basis of living. Thrift, rigid economy
and greater production ure the only
things that can bring about better
times as I see It. We talk about more
Immigrants and all that sort of thing—
that part of It will take care of Itself
If Canada looks after thc simple fundamentals of prosperity."
Canadians are looking to the government to work ont tlieir salvation,
but. he pointed out, thc people are
really the government. Legislation
may help, but is can't bring about prosperity. Mr. Riley admitted the tariff
was too high, freight rates were too
high, taxes wore too high, wages were
too high, prices were too high—In fact,
Canada was trying to struggle along
on too high a standard, with the national debt steadily mounting.
"We look everywhere but the right
place for ttie cause of our depression.
We've got to get back. Merchants
might just as well understand it now
aa later. Labor must accept a cut,
and this Includes miners, railway men
and all otlier groups of labor. When
we start getting down to a pre-war
basis, go to work, produce and start
having a little, just that soon will the
country begin to prosper."
"We find business the best In the
mixed farming sections of the west.

It is an adaptation by June Math Is
of Balzac's novel, "Eugenie Grander.."
The scene is laid in a provincial city
of France, where the miserly old
Grandet hoards his gold and lives fn
poverty with his daughter. Eugenie.
A nephew, Charles, a young boulevar-
dier from Paris, son of a bankrupt
suicide, is thrown upon thc miser's
charity—and is accordingly thrown
out, shipping to Martinique witb little
money, but with the treasured memory
of Eugenie's love.
This is the beginning of Balzac's tremendous story of love and greed.
In tbe screen version Alice Terry,
the exquisitely beautiful Marguerite
of "The Four Horsemen," has scored a
sensational triumph through her portrayal of Eugenie. Rudolph Valentino,
whose Lathi temperament and graceful fascination fitted him pre-eminently for the role of Julio In "Tlie Four
Horsemen,"is cast as the Pa rlsia n

Those critics of the a
maintain.-<l that Lha •

good deal of the Inlere
oreen who have
tiding of most
obvious that a
il. is lost, would
do well to go to the Rex Theatre on
Monday and Tuesday when "Kind the
Woman," featuring Alma Reubens, is
to be presented.
Tbis Cosmopolitan production is undoubtedly ttie niosi baffling mystery
picture ever produced, bocCLUSO up to
the last foot oi lilm. tlu- real murderer, who lias been sought Tor weeks hy

Tliere is col ty and pathot even U
the point of laughter and [ears, si
cording to ihe theatre management;
there Is humor In lhe situation* whore
in Nora, the doil-llkn wife, thi character pictured by Naslmova, makes
her odd and ludicrous mistakes aa I
house-keeper umi as a mother ol two
beautiful children and a tiny Infant,
and there is the lesson for all women
everywhere that brings out ths big
point in the play, namely, thai every
woman has a right to control Iter own
destiny, to the development of her
own individuality.
In addition to the aforementioned
high lights in "A Doll's llouse," Nazi-
mova has surrounded herself with an
exceptionally strong cast and the acting is such that all the subtleties and
ull the Incidents that have gone to
make Mils drama one of the most popular are made to stand oui clear-cut
and apparent at the first glance.
"A Doll's llbusc" is a picture for all
to see, and il is particularly true that
every woman, either young or old, in
