meeting of the Cltlxens of Cranhrook
records Ms Indexible determination
lo cotttlni.e to a victorious end the
struggle hi maintenance of those
(deals of Liberty and Justice which
are the common and sacred ciuio of

Tho above resolution was pnsod by I
a   unanimous  studding   VOtfl   by   ttlOBG I
present at tin1 Ktiisi.n theatre on Wednesday ovonlng ut tho Patriotic mooting called by tin* mayor uml Uu* pros-
luVrit of tlu* Hoard of Trade to commemorate tht; anniversary of tlio
declaration of war and to renew tho
pledges to tlie Empire for the carrying
on of the war to a successful con*-
Mayor Bowness was out of the city,
and J. M. Christie, president of tlio
Board of Trade, occupied the chair and
opened the meeting hy setting forth
briefly the objects for which the meeting lnul been called.
Ur. J. H. King wus the first speaker
called and suld that he believed it fitting that this meeting should be held.
This wur was declared to uphold the
honor and dignity of the British Empire, and since we chose to engage
Germany at this time, It Is now a war
for our existence. Britishers love
peace and Great Britain endeavored to
maintain peace In those few exciting
days preceding the outbreak of war.
Looking back on those events of one
yoar ago we can all be proud that we
are Britishers.
We have had one year of terrible
war. We who are so far away from
the scene of destruction cannot realize
the extent of the damage, the extent
of tho misery and the extent of chaotic
conditions in those war ridden lands.
The Canadian contingents have acquitted themselves with honor. We are'
proud of the men who have represented us in Fratfce. Gen. Alderson
recently addressed tho troops In
France with the following wordH,
whicli should be read with pride by
every citizen:
"NVv I feel tlmt we may without any
false pride, think a little of what the
Division has done during the past few
days. I would first of all toll you
that I have never been so proud of
anything in my life, as 1 am of tills
armlet with "1 Canada" on it. that 1
wear on my right arm. 1 thank you
and congratulate you from tlie bottom
of my heart, for the part each one of
you have taken In giving me this feeling of pride.
"I think it is possible that you do not
oil of you. quite realize that realize
that If we had retired on the evening
of the 22(1 April, when our allies fell
back before the gas, and left our left
flank quite open—the whole nf the
27th and 28th Divisions would probably lmvo boon cut off, certainly they
would not have got away a gun or a
vehicle of any sort, and probably not
more than half the Infantry,
"This is whnt our Commander-in-
Chief meant when ho telegraphed, as
he did, that 'the Canadians saved the
situation.' My Inds, if ever men hail
a right to he proud In this world, you
■| know my military history pretty
well, and 1 cannot think of an Instance
espoclally when the cleverness und determination of the enemy is taken Into account, in which troops wore
pieced in such a dilllcull position, nor
can I think of an Instance In which so
much depended on the standing fast
of one division.
■■Von will remember the last time l
spoke lo you Just before you went Into the trenches ul Snilly. now over two
monthB ago. 1 told you about my old
regiments Ihe It. W. Kents- having
gained it reputation for not budging
from the trenches, no matter how they
wore attack Od. I said then that I wns
quite sure that fn n short time, the
Army out here would ho sayinn the
Some of you. 1
Dr. King continued:—
"We must look forward to the future
and do our duty in the coming year.
Each one must do their 'bit.' We us
Canadians have as much Interest in
this war as anyone In the British Isles.
The indies are doing their part. They
havo u number of societies that nre
carrying on good work. These organisations are businesslike in their
methods und money donated to them
will be well expended.

Dr. King then moved the above resolution.

her father, Wus attired ln a pretty

once, faith and entire conviction In the
ultimate result of this war. He was a
man of peace, lie hud, while fn England endeavored to rouse the clergy
to greater efforts to maintain peace by
circularizing nil of them. He had
read correspondence of Viscount Hal-
thine In controversy several years ago
with Qermany and he knew from that
correspondence that war would result
sooner or later. One knew for a fact
that before long the collision must
take place.
Ho then reviewed German philosophy whicli had been taught tlie people
for the past fifty years as outlined in
the writings of Trletoche, and Nletsche
etei, In which they taught that "might
is right, that peace was Immoral and
that wnr wus the only way in which a
nation could continue virile and progress." The speaker stated that war
was a crime but tliat there were worse
crimes than war. Great Britain Is engaged In this wur for right, for freedom, for the righto of small states,
and against the theory that "might is
right" all of which Is planted firmly
doe]) in tiie hearts of the people. These
principles are dearer than life, and
they stand as strongly in hearts of the
people today ms tliey did ono yoar ago
when the war first came upon us. We
shall continue the fight as gentlemen
should fight even against the terrible
othls of an unfair foe, and with prayer
beseech the Almighty for success.

Senator King, father of Dr. J. Hj
King, was then called upon and said
that he had occupied a position in the
Canadian senate for the past 35 years
and when called upon to speak felt
that lt wns lib? duty to do so. He
thought it the duty of every citizen
at this time to set aside Canadian politics in favor of their Inrger duty.
Martin Burrell of the Conservative
party was doing all that he could to
encourage recruiting and Qeorge E.
foster of tbo Liberal party was raising
his voice in the same cnuse throughout
the east. Tbo prime minister of Canada today was receiving a most gracious reception in Kngland. He was
not receiving that reception as the
leader of the Conservative party but
as the representative of Canada. When
they are shaking hands with the Rt.
Hon U L. Borden they are shaking
hands with every loyal man, woman
and child In Canada. The speaker
stated that while Sam Hughes hud
been severely .criticised he felt that
the Minister of Militia hnd mnde no
serious blunders during the past year.
Qermany was sadly disappointed,
stated the speaker, upon the trend of
events after the war wns declared.
Tbey reckoned upon trouble in Ireland, they reckoned upon trouble in
Canada, they reckoned upon trouble
In India. In all of these they were
"I do not know ninny of you people
here." sahl the speaker, "hut I have
made 22 trips to Cranbrook In the
nasi ir, yours. Most of my family reside in British Columbia. I want In
say that 1 am proud of Cranhrook and
whal It has done in this war. When I
learned tbat you had sent HO able-

King downwards, which I will read to
you, witli also a very nice letter from
our Army Commander, Sir Horace
"Now, I doubt if nny Divisional Commander, or any Dlvi***on, ever had so
many congratulatory telegrams and
messages, as these, and remembrtr,
thoy ure not merely polite nnd Bent'm-
entnl ones, they express just what th:
srnders really feel,
"I am now going to shake hands
with your officers, and as I do so, I

wo will not have any cheering now—
we will keep that till you have added

The speaker suld, we often hear reference made that we are sending men
icross to help old England. We are
sending men to help save the Empire
and In saving the Empire we are Bavins Canada. If Germany should win
they would not want the British Iales,
they would not want Indlu, they would
not want Australia, hut they would
want Canada with all her wealth of

"On the trnlns nnd In Cranbrook,"
suld Senntor King, "I am often asked
the question, "How is it ull going to
end?" "Well, t.cannot say, and no other man can say. But England never
was beaten und wlll never say die until she's dead."
The speaker closed amidst an out-
hurst of applause.

Pretty Wedding at Christ Church Saturday In which Well Known
Young Couple Figure
The marriago of Miss Marjory Ban-
well, who formerly resided tn Femle,
to Mr. Howard Gordon Mecredy, took
place In Christ Church, Cranhrook, on
Saturday, the 31st July, 1915, at eleven
o'clock In the morning.
The ceremony was performed by
Rev. W. H. Bridge, Rector of Cran
The bride was attended by Miss Me
credy, slater of the groom, and was
glvon away by her brother, Mr. S.
Banwell. Mr. Mecredy waa supported
by Mr, Septbnua Ramsey.
Chas. Anderson, cole red, appeared
ocforo Justices of the peace Hill iud
1 -iwuall ou Tuesday afternoon charged with the serious offence of sefling
whiskey to an Indian named Patrick.
Patrick, it will be remembered, was
last week sentenced to six months for
being drunk. Patrick supplied the
whiskey to the Indian Paul, wbo last |
week committed suicide hy the gun
The case was called ut two o'clock.
thu accused being represented by A.
I. Fisher, of Pernie, while Constable
Collins conducted thc case for the government. Patrick was put on the
stand aud told how he had purchased
the whiskey from A:iderson for
♦1.60 at the home of the latter, near
the Standard Mill. He told a straight
story. He was cross-examined by-
counsel for the accused for about an
hour and a half and while his evidence
was contradictory in some instances,
he stuck through thick and thin that
Anderson had supplied him the booze.
Indian Constable Ryekman was the
next witness called. He testified how
he and Constable Joseph Walsh, of
Fort Steele, had examined the body of
Paul and found a sum of money in
the pockets of the deceased. He told
of the arrest of Patrick and tbe confession of his (Patilek's) led to tin
arrest of Anderson. .
A. C. Blaine, clerk In thc employ of
A. 0. Bowness, was the next witness
called. Mr. Blaine stated he had sold
whiskey to Anderson on two occasions
to tbe best of hla memory.
Mrs. Frank Deacon, sworn, said she
waB a married woman and resides on
Cranbrook street. She had arranged
to buy a horse of Patrick, but the latter was too busy to round up the
animal. She was a frequent visitor at
the abode of the Andersons. Constable Collins cross-examined this witness. He asked if she was living with
her husband. The witness replied ln
the negative. "Who are you living
with?" the constable asked. Counsel
for the accused objected to this. Asked if she knew the Indian Patrick she
replied in thc affirmative. On one occasion Patrick had asked her, outside
of her place, If she had any beer, as
he was very thirsty and dry. She replied that she had none, whereupon
Patrick was served with a glass of
aqua pura. Patrick had never been In
the house of the witness. This concluded Mrs. Deacon's testimony.
Counsel for thc prisoner asked for
an adjournment, the court granting
his request until 7 o'clock that evening
for the conclusion of the trial.
William Watson, an employee of the
power house, was the first witness
called during the evening session. He,
in company with another man had
gone down fishing to the Standard an
the evening Anderson is supposed to
have supplied the booze to the Indian.
He was at the home of Anderson when
the Indian arrived and watched every
movement of the red man. He never
saw any whiskey pass between Anderson and the Indian. Watson's evidence, given In a clear and convincing
manner, greatly helped the accused.
It was his evidence which mainly
cleared the negro. Mrs. Anderson,
wife of the accused, was next put on
the stand. She admitted her husband
had brought whiskey Into the house
the night ln question and had given
her the bottle, which was produced.
The bottle was empty, as dry as the
Sahara desert. She said the Indian
had called at her home on the night In
question and asked for something to
eat. She supplied him with food and
the Indian left the house some time
afterv.Tird. on horseback. She believed
the Indian bad been drinking. She
was employed as a cook for Maude
Jackson, at one time. In the Lemon
Mr. A. H. Bulloch, the barber, was
the next witness called. Mr. Bulloch
testified that Anderson had been cm-
ployed In his shop as porter and shoe
shiner for upwards of a year.
The accused was then put on the
stand and dented having ever given
the Indian whiskey. He said ft was
true the Indian came tn his house that -at tin
evening, and he had tied his horse up
at the rear cf the building. He was
cross-questioned by constable Collins

The case of Cliurles Anderson, the
negro, who wus charged In the police
court tbis week wtth supplying whiskey to an Indian, should serve us a
lesson to those guilty of this nefarious
practise. The law says Anderson was
innocent of thfl charge, and the law
must take Its course. We ure law-abiding citizens, that Is, In thu great majority of cases, .Nevertheless, someone
is furnishing the Indians with liquor
and the great pity is thoy cannot all be
brought to Justice. There always has
been a nigger In the woodpile somewhere with regard to tin* Indians securing "fire water." LaBt week an
Indian named Paul, a running mate
of Patrick, while recovering from a
two days spree, used u high power .22

He was also of the opinion that England hud butchered his forefathers on
the Plains of Abraham and that anything iu the way of nuvul aid, Laurier
navy or otherwise, was a debt that
Cunadu did not owe,
Mr. Paquet, M.P. for L'Islet, was another Borden supporter, who saw In
the Laurier navy a great flesh eating
dragon. .Mr.„Puquct has not landed a
Government job yet, but It Is notlce-
i hut when he lets himself go now
on something like "Foul Brood ln

the past and interfere with the rewards nf virtue which must come to
the man who waits and says nothing.
Meanwhile just to show the Quebec
voters that the Nationalists had no-
Premlor Borden was

Attorney-General Bowser lias at
last succeeded in addressing an audience in Vancouver. Admittance to
this meeting was allowed only by card
and his hand-picked audience was obliged to listen for two hours to Mr.
Bowser's tirade of abuse on the authors of "The Crisis In B. C." It Is said
that the only enthusiasm the crowd
displayed was when they were allowed
to leave the hall. Apparently the next
campaign Is to be one of "Villitlcatlon
vs. Facts." One of liis arguments In
defence of his own character is quoted:
"Describing tho clergymen whose
names appeared as sponsors for the
"Crisis In II. 0." pamphlet. Mr. Bowser declared 'there were preachers and
preachers.' To show that some of the
ministry approved of the attorney-
general und tlie way he carried on his
work, he quoted from a resolution
passed at a recent Methodist conference in which greut satisfaction was
expression over Mr. Bowser's bundling
of tlie social evil."
As the Cranbrook rod light dlstrlot
owes its existence to his handling of
the social evil, und Is carefully nur
tured under provincial control, th*
above remarks should make quite i
hit with people of that class.
Mr. Bowser carefully refrained from
answering any of the charges In "The
Crisis In B. C," and contented himself
•witli heaping rhetorical abuse upon
the authors. A good, strong abuser
with a lusty voice can attract attention hut never succeeds In changing
•the opinions of thinking people, who
compose the large bulwark of our responsible citizenship. The facts havo
been shown to the satisfaction of most
people and the heads of the government must brliiR some more clever
answer than abuse before tliey will

Nobody would expect hlm to do any
nf these things because that might lead
tlie question buck too far and down
loo deep, but he could huve mude n
long story short und put an Interesting speech at tin? same time by going
us fur back as 1911 ami telling what
Mr.* Hourassa und his Nationalist
friends suid then in behalf of Premier
Horden and bis policies. Tlie issue
was supposed to be reciprocity, but us
the Rimw. wus to play both cutis for
the mlddle.the Laurier navy was the
chief tiling talked ubout in Quebec.
The subject spilled over Into Northern
Ontario and Mr. Bourassa was brought
Into Nipisslng aud Algomu to help tlie
Conservative candidates thero. Messrs.
Gordon und Smythe had voters who
eded inflaming on this subject, and
they calculated that Mr. Bourassa wns
the bosB fire bug. He Is. Tn New On-
tario ho operated under the direct aus-
pICOB of the Hon. Fruiik Cochrane who
held the matches for htm. To suggestions thnt Mr. Borden should substitute for Mr. Bourassa thc candidates
gruffly replied "We don't need Borden
to win, wc du need Bourassa." Thousands of copies of Le Devoir wero circulated free to fan the blaze,
The solicitor-general need nut have

Monk, whose motives wore sincere but
lie missed a lot of hot stuff when be
neglected thc outpourings of Mr.
Bourassa and his hand of hope. There
Is really no excuse for the oversight
because the old fyles of Lo Devoir are
full of It, also the columns of Hansard
where it lias been put on record by
industrious Liberal members.
Broadly speaking Mr. Bourassa was
of tlie opinion that Canada had paid
all her debt to England, that a Canadian navy would embroil Canada ln
Downing street wars and that Canadian husbands, sons nnd sweethearts
were In grave danger of being dragged away by this sea monster and disembowelled by foreign cannon balls.
Mr. Bourassa, to give him credit, still
holds these opinions, but all his Nationalist allies—In office at Ottawa-
are slnglllg the other tune now. It Is

Mr. W. Newton, of the crops and
soils brunch of the department of agriculture, Victoria, was In town some
days this week muklng the inspection
of the field crop competitions of the
local Farmers' Institute. Accompanied by A. lt. Smith, president, and F.
A. Russell, secretary, and Squire E. A.
Hill In the car of the latter they made
a tour of thc competing fields.
The visiting inspector was very
favorably Impressed with the appearance off the grain crops on St. Mary's
Prairie, which never looked better
than this season. Among places vis
Ited tliat were especially noticeable
in one crop or other to the tenderfoot, was the large ^alfalfa field at
Mr. H. H. MeClure's. Mr, Lyman Taylor's competing oat field which was
so [tall Mr. Newton nearly missed
getting out. Both Mr. Taylor and
Mr. Norman McClure have most splendid crops of potatoes to the ordinary
observer, they seem sure of being at
the top, but the expert may say different. Mr. Taylor's Early Ohio show a
very even crop of especially smooth
tubers, while Mr. MeClure's were an
early pink variety and yielding very
heavy. Thc several oat fields of
Messrs. Lye, Stevens, N. McClure nnd
Clark Bros, are all promising a heavy
crop but showing slight evidences of
hall. In Messrs. Clark's place are
about eighty ucres of Early Clawson
Winter wheat, one field of which Russell estimated at thirty bushels to the
acre but the magistrate with his best
air of authority placed it at thirty-five
and for four of being in contempt of
court Mr. .Newton was constrained
to agree thut he felt it would come
very close to that figure. The binders
are already at work out there and
lying ln wait for later business was
a new thresher nt the Beattie-Murphy ranch. On the way home the plots
at the St. Eugene Mission were looked over, where the Inspectors stated
both potatoes and oats would score
well up In the final counting.
At a later trip Mr. Newton visited
tho close in plots ut Messrs. Pringle,
and Mitchell. The party Immediately
left for Fort Steele where they visited the Myers ranch at Cherry Creek,
and the plot of the Unionist Investment company at vV&aa. Mr. Newton
then left for Golden to inspect the
several plots In that district.
Mr. Newton stated tie would liked
to have addressed a meeting in this
city hut owing to everybody being
busy he thought it best to postpone
the meeting until some future date.
He will prtdmbly return to Cranbrook shortly when he will inspect the
boys and girls plots ln thc field competition.
The thanks of tlie Farmers' Institute are due Mr. E. A. Hill for the
services rendered, by placing.at the
disposals of the inspectors his auto.
Mr. and Mrs. A. H, Webb und son

they have been visiting for the past

Wednesday afternoon some twenty

Writes of Canada's Naluu.il
Mr. S. L. Coop, now a soldier of the
king, stationed at Shorncliffe, has forwarded the following account of the
Dominion day celebration at Shorncliffe. Tlie account is taken from the
Daily Chronicle:
"Is there a holiday next Thursday?"
inquired u Canadian officer ot an English confrere.
"A holiday? Not that 1 know of.
Why should there be?"
"Why? Because It's Dominion Day."
"Dominion Day?" blankly echoed the
Knglish oillcer.
"Yeul Did you never hear of It, yon
benighted Islander?"
"I really um afraid not." replied thc
Knglish oltlccr, convicted hy the ('ana*
diiinV. tone of nothing less than crime,
"Just what Is it?"
"Perhaps you have never heard or
"Well rather; wc hoar something or
Canada these duys."
Then as thc light began to break lu
on his darkened soul, "Ah! I see, thut
is your Canadian national duy, Is lt
It Is. And the question Is, 'Are we
going to have n holiday?" "
Well! you see, the King specially
requested that there hc no holiday on
liis birthday,*■
"The King's birthday! Oh, that's all
right—bat this Is different, you see."
Tlie Englishman looked mildly surprised. ,
"Oh, the King's all right," continued
the Canadian, answering the other's
look; "we think a lot of him these
days. But—you know—Dominion Day

Tho Canadian officer had little objection to the grind; nor had his men.
The Canadians eat up work. But
somehow It did not seem right that
the 1st of July should pass without
celebration of any kind. He had memories of that day, of Its early morning
hours, when as a kid he used to steal
downstairs to let off a few ffre-erack-
ers from his precious bunch, just to
see how they would go. Latterly he
had not cared for the fireworks part of
it, except for the kiddles. But somehow he was conscious of a new interest in Canada's Birthday. Perhaps because Canada was so far away, and
the kiddles would be wanting someone
to Bet off their crackers. It was good
to be in England, the beautiful old
Motherland. But it was not Canada,
and It did not seem right that Canada's Birthday should be allowed to
pass unmarked. So, too, thought the
Commandant of the Shorncliffe Camp,
a right good Canadian he.
I have arranged a tattoo for the
evening," he announced in conversation with the Canadian officer the day
before the First.
What about a holiday. Colonel?"
The Commandant shook his head—
"Well, then, a half-holiday?''
"No, at least," remembering the officer's ancestry and that he was a
Cameron Highlander, "not offeeclally
"Shal I get a rope for the tug-Ofwar,
do you think?"
"I think," replied the Commandant
slowly, with a wink In his left eye,
"you might get the rope."
This was sufficient encouragement
for the 43rd to go on with, and so the
rope was got, and vaulting pole and
standards, with otlier appurtenances
of a day of sports. And the preparations went bravely on. So also went
on the syllabus which for Dominion
Day showed company drills, instruction clases, lectures, physicals for thc
forenoon, bayonet fighting and route
marching for the afternoon.
"All right, let ber go," and so the
fields and plains, the lanes and roads
are filled with Canadlun soldiers celebrating their Dominion Day drilling,
bayonet fighting, and route marching,
while overhead soars thrumming the
watchful airship, Britain's eye. For
Britain lias a business on hand.
Just yonder stretches the misty sea,
where unsleeping lie Britain's men-o'-
war. Beyond tlie sea bleeding Bel-
glum, her blood-soaked ground crying
to Heaven, long waiting but soon ut
length to hear. And France fiercely,
proudly proving her right to Uvo an
Independent nation. And Germany.
Germany! the last word In intellectual
power, In Industrial achievement, In
scientific research, aye, and ln Infamous brutality! Germany! the
mighty, modern Hun, the highly
Bdenced barbarian of this 20th cmtury
more bloody than Attila, more ruthless
than his savage hordes, Qermanyt
doomed to destruction because freedom is man's Inalienable birthright,
and man's undying passion. Germany,
fated to execration bv future generations for that she has crucified the
Son of God afresh and put him to an
open shame. Germany! for the balking of whose Insolent and futile ambition and for the crushing ot whose
archaic military madness we Canadians are tramping on tills Dominion
Day theso English fields and these
sweet English lanes, 5,000 mlteB from
our Western Canada, which dear land
we care not ever to Bee again If this
monstroui threatening cloud be not removed for ever from our sky. For this
It Is that 100,000 Canadian cltlsens
have left their homes, with 600,000
more eager to follow tf needed, knit
with otHvr sous ot Ao Empire ln one
firm resolve that once more Freedom
shall be saved for the race as by their
sires in other days.

But the tattoo Is on. The ground
chosen Ib the little* plateau within
the lines of the 43rd Just below the officers' tents, flanked on one side by a
sloping grassy hill, on the other by
a row of ancient trees shading a Uttle
hidden brook that gurgles softly to Itself all duy long. On the sloping hill
the soldiers of the various battalions
lie stretched at ease in khaki-colored
kilts and trews, cups and bonnets, except tlie men or the 43rd, who wear the
dark blue Glengarry. In thc center or
the plateau a platform Invites attention, and on each side facing It rows
of chairs Tor ollicers add their friends,
among the latter some officers' wives,
happy creatures, and hnppy officers to
have them so near and not 5,000 miles
The commandant bus been culled
away on a sud business, a soldier's
funeral, hence thc junior major or the
43rd as chairman of tluit Important
und delicately organized commlltee or
the bandmasters and pipe-majors t»r
the various battalions is in charge of
the programme, Major Grusulu Ib
equal to the occasion, genial, ready,
resourceful. With him associated is
Major Watts, adjutant of the 0th, as
musical director; ln peaceful times
organist and choirmaster of a Presbyterian congregation in Kdmonton far
"Bang! Bang! Bang!"
Bang! Bang! Bang!"
The drums in the distance begin to
throb, and from the eastern side of the
plain march In the band of the 9th
playing their regimental march,
"Garryowcn," none the less. From
tiie west the band of the llth, then
that of tbe 12th, finally (for the 43rd
band Is away on leave, worse luck)
the splendid band of the 49th, each
playing Its own regimental march
which Is taken up by the bands already In position. Next come the
massed buglers of alt the regiments,
their thrilling souring notes rising
high above the hills, and take their
stand beside the bunds already In
place. Then a pause, when trom
round the hill shoulder rise wild and
weird sounds. Tlie music of the evening, to Scottish hearts and cars, hus
begun. It is the fine pipe baud of the
42nd Royal Highlanders from Montreal, khaki-clad, kilts and bonnets,
and blowing proudly and defiantly
their "Wha Saw the Forty Twa?'"
Again a pause, and from the other
side or the hill, gay with tartans und
blue bonnets, tlieir great booming
drones gorgeous with flowing streamers and silver mountings. In march the
43rd CamerotiB.
"Man, wouldn't Alick Macdonald be
proud of bis pipes today," says u Winnipeg Highlander. For these sume
pipes are Alick's gift to tlie 43rd. And
hearkening to these great booming
drones, I agree.

Ah, these pipers! These Highland
pipers! Truly, as one of them said,
"Pipers are no just like otlier people,
Blowing their "Pibroch of Donald
Dhu." they swing Into line, mighty and
magnificent. Lust comes the brave
little pipe band of tbe 49th. This battalion has one Scotch company from
Edmonton, which insisted on bringing
its pipe band along—why not? The
"Blue Bonnets" Ib their tune, and finely they ring It out.   Now they are all
in place, bands, bugloa and pipes. Thn
massed hands alrikn up our National
Song, und nil tho soldiers spring to
tlieir feet uiul sing "0 Cuiluda."        A
little high, bul our hearts wero in it.
Ami so the progrumnio goes on, single
bands ami mnssed humls, with solos
from French horns, trombones and
cornets, varied delightfully with tha
Highland lltng by Plpo-Major Johnson, of tlie 42nd, and the sword dance
by ptpor Reid, of tho 48rd, followed
by an encore, tho   Bhoan   Trhoubs,
which  I dofy any mere Sassenach    to

Piper Held, or tho twinkling feet, danced it that night. For he did it "ln
the style of Willie Muelemuin," as a
piper said, "the hest of his dny, uud
they have not matched him yet." The
massed pipe bands play "The 79th's
Farewell to Gibraltar." Forty-one
pipers and every man blowing his
best. "Aye, man, it is a grand hearing yon." said ;i man from the North.
Colonel Moon*, of the 9th, on a
minute's warning, makes a fine speech.
Instinct with patriotic sentiment, and
culls for three cheers for Canada. He
got three and a tiger nnd "n User's
pup." Major Qrosale In another
speech, neat and to the point, thanks
those who had helped to celebrate our
Dominion Day. and once more culls
ror cheers, and gets them. Then the
First Post warns us that we are soldiers and under orders. The massed .
bands plnv "Nearer, my God. to Thee."
Full and lender the long-drawn notes
or the great hymn rise and fall on the
evening air, the soldiers joining reverently. The chaplain of the 43rd
congratulates the commandant upon
the happy suggestion of a tattoo, the
hatrman upon his very successful
programme, and all tho company upon
