in his opening remniks spoke of the

brotherhood, and second citizenship.
Wfe are citizens, said the speaker, of a
vast Empire, though the British Empire was discovered In August, 1914.
Before that time we scarcely realized
that there was such a thing as the
British Empire. England seemed to
consider Canada and the other colonies as a great dumping ground for unsuccessful Englishmen. After August
however everything was changed. The
response from all pr*.rts of the Empire,
from the British Isles and from the
Dominions over the seas, was a revelation. For the flrst time we realized
the bonds of Empire, and realized that
only as a free and Independent people
could the Empire maintain Ub rightful place as the defender of liberty
and justice. If Canada did not come
to tho aid of the Mother Country tn
her hour of need, and the Mother
Country went under, Canada would
soon be under the heel of Prusslanlsm.

Before closing he gave a timely
word of admonition and warning. If
we are to obtain any lasting benefit
from the victory we nil believe wlll
in the end hn ours, we must be careful that we do not ourselves become
tainted by the militarism and material-
ism of Germany. If wc do not resist
the tendency towards materialistic
things, the pleasures of wealth, luxury
and self Indulgence, we shall be no
better off than beforo. The greatness

The announcement of « limited form
of conscription in the Mother Country,
coupled with the New Year message
of Premier Borden tlmt Cunadu will
raise the number of trooiis to hall a
million men, mines the question
whether this number can be obtained
by tho voluntary system or If a similar form ol couBorlptlon to that of
Great Britain may bo necessary. In
round numbers the troops raised to
date total 300,000 men. is tt possible
to obtain another 800,000 men In Canada by a continuation of tho present
system? That will depend entirely on
the response of the uble-bodlod eligible men ni' tin* country. Your King
and Country Need Vou.   It's up to you.
One of tlie main tuples of discussion
In local business circles tho hist weok
lias been tho rumored removal of
half the recruits from Cranbrook to
tlie Const. The Hoard of Trade, the
city Council and the Conservative
Executive havo been in consultation
over the matter, and have laid the
particulars of tiie case before (loneral
tho Hon. Sum  Hughes, Minister of
Militia His reply Is to the effect
that if proper quarters are furnished
the mon they will be trained here
until required for mobilization, but
that thoy must not be bllletled on
prcmlsos where liquor Is sold.
Cra n brook feds that It Is deserving
of some consideration at the hands
of the authorities iu the matter of
training recruits here. This city has
already furnished over UOO reemfts
for overseas service, a record which
we believe is unequalled by sny city
of liko size In Canada. Until the recruiting of the present company the
city has received no benefit whatever
from tin* enlistments, the boys holng
moved tn training quarters oUewhere
practically as soon as sinned uo,
If it were a question of m'Mtarv
ellicien'cy only. If the boys cou'd be
trained better and dispatched overseas
quicker when trained at headquarters and If this wero heiiiR done, thoro
Is not one patriotic citizen nmong us
who would have a word of comnlatnt.
Hut this does not'soem to be (he eas?.
Without going Into a criticism of our
military authorities, which under thn
circumstances and at the prosenl t'.ne
Is not advisable, it looks as If the
coast cities were attempting to fatten nt the expense of tlie inland cities,
Tlie wagOB of even one hundred ui.n
Is a big Item to the business interests
of a small city at the present time,
and the distribution of $6,000 a mouth
nmonc tlie various interests nf the
city would help very considerably
during a time of monetary stringency
The Minister of Militia promised
this city quite definitely that nil recruits enlisted here after November 1
lust would be trained during the winter or until required for mobilization.
If tliey nre required for mobillzatii-r.
or if a frank statement Is made that
It Is necessary to move them as a
matter of military necessity, well and
good. On the other hand. If the men
are being forced to ask for transfer
tn headquarters on account of lack of
uniforms and equipment and reduction in wages, a protest is qalte Justl-
(led and worthy of recognition hy
the powers thnt he.
We understand the clly council Is
ready to pay the rent of u suitable
building for quartering the troops, together with light and water, This
will remove the present strong objection of the militia department tn soldiers being quartered nn licensed premises, and will enable the officers to
maintain proper discipline and control
over their men. The men hav** thc
privilege of the Clnb building with
swimming pool, and appreciate it very
much. Wltli uniforms, equipment, and
comfortable sleeping quarters the
men would lie quite as well off in

In common with tlie rest of the Dominion, Kootenny and Boundary,
which has suffered less auoutely from
war conditions than many districts,
can look forward to 1910 with a confidence begotten of inherently sound
condition?, successful passage through
.i period of economic unsettlenient and
kpowledgo tbat the aggregate value of
Lhe output from its mines, lumber
mills and agricultural lands during
die past li. months was one of the
greatest in Its history,
Kootenny and Boundary bus more
than held its own In 1016. During
the 12 months it has made marked
progress, especially in tho mining industry and in the lumber business.
The former has been stimulated by
the high price of metals nnd a revival
,)f Investment interest tn tlu* Industry.
The lutter has benefitted from the increased demand resulting from the record grain crops iu the prairie provinces, Agriculture has hnd easily
ihe largest out] ut in its history. Con-
litlous lu nil three of these basic industries point to still further betterment during 1810,
Ims made possible tlie progross already
made towards the establlsLmoat or a
creamery. It is an unfortauato tact,
but nevertheless true, that farmers as
a class do not respond rc.id.1y to a
call for a puhlic meeting unless right
at their doors. Everyone who has had
any experience along that line know;
how difficult lt is to get farmers or
ranchers to attend, nnd this is tlie reason tiiere ure not more public meetings culled. The "get together" spirit
is what makes a prosperous and happy
community, but unless both sides are
willing, and are ready to sacrifice their
own convenience at times for tlie gen
eral good tiiere can he little progress.
Our correspondent has raised a good
point, nnd we would he glad to hear
from others who may have u remedy
to suggest.!

The theory commonly held that poll-
leal piling huth great aud small, are
llBtrlbutod to friends or the party in
ower on very much the same prln-
ilpte as that enunciated by the Bruce
county Scotchman who was wont to
iroy, "Ood Bless nu* and my wife, my
ou John and daughter Annie, us four
md no more," was very rudely upset
it Cranbrook last week when the Con-
lOrvnttVO Association recommended
Private Olenday, a returned wur horo,
for the position of inland revenue collector rendered vacant by the death
of A. 11. Orace.
Although nine of the party Btalwnrtf
had tholr applications in for the Job,
the Herald tells us "that without even
i-sking us to his previous political
imitations tlie executive unanimously
igrccd to recommend lJto. Q len duy fot
lie position"- his certificate of injur)
n action in defence of Ills country was
.ill that wus necessary.
Such a move Is alike commendable
md remarkable — for Cranbrook,
where they have more politics to tlw
iquaro Inch thun obtains even In
Ireston, whicli is hud enough—and we
hope to see It become epidemic from
Halifax to Victoria. Indeed the cx-
implc set at Cruubrook Is such a
^ood one that both tlie dominion und
irovlnclal   Governments   might   welt
make some systematic effort to fill
■very possible vacancy occurlng In tin
'•Ivll service, with these heroes, n-
lopting the policy of local returned
lOldlcrs for local positions, ns fur as
may be feasible,
These  disabled   soldiers,   who   were
iropared to make the supreme sacri-
iice in defence of the empire, nre cn-
.Itlcd to the liest the country can give
'hem, and granted they have tin* ability for the posts assigned them the
ountry can, in this way, do the hand
■onie thing for many, of our gallant defenders at absolutely no expense or ln-
■onvenlcnce to the people genernlly.

contrary to army regulations St ont of

The association urged upon these

Mr. Kditor. Crunbrook Herald:—
I have spent considerable time In
your district looking up locations for
self and friends with the idea of going Into mixed farming. The district
around Cranbrook is well adapted for
that, also for dairy farms, but tlie
way you run things lu your country
seems rather crude to me, Your people do not tuke advantage of Farming
Institutions. I talked to many fanners aud tliey suy tliey art? not Invited
aud seldom know ubout meetings, till
all Is over aud settled- a few city people tuke it upon themselves to rim the
whole shooting match. Tliis is a pity
because your country cannot develop
without the co-operation of the country
and city people. I have watched your
public market, what's the mutter with
It? A large amount of farm truck must
bo used in your city, The farmers
say if they bring It to market they
have to take It back nguln. The town
people won't buy It. It struck me ns
a poor layout for fanners, tiiere must
be some reason for it surely. Mr. Kditor, if I was fu your place I would
find out and show up the causes. It
would do you good, your pnuer would
be interesting to farmers. I like your
country but there's a nigger in the
wood pile somewhere. I noticed in yonr
paper that a Creamery is talked about
and that Interested me a whole lot and
I made inquiries and found there Is
something in what I have been told
Cor instance, a meeting to arrange for
a creamery was hold and not a farmer was nt It. It looks to me as If all
was to he settled without tin* men most
Interested being consulted, That kind
of business, believe me, wlll never do
and until tlie farmers In your locality
enn have a say in matters relating to
their own buslnessl will go back to
my old stand and watch for a while
In the meantime a friend will send
your paper to inc.
Yours truly,
fKd Note,- "An Investigator" Is
slightly In error In regard to tho
creamery at least. Any action taken
so far has been joint action of the
Board of Trade, the Agricultural Society nnd the Farmers' Institute, the
latter two being farmers' organizations. Letters have been mailed to
every farmer or rancher fn the district
having cows, accompanied hy a stamped and nddressed envelnec, and only
n little over one-third of the recipients
have taken the trouble to reply. It Is
far from the desire of tlie citizens of
this city to "run the whole shooting
match" as our correspondent snys, The
business men realize that tlieir Interests and those of the farmers nnd
ranchers In the district are Identical,
and 1Mb the spirit of co operation that

One of thc most hilarious publications of the day Is The Fatherland
of Ncw York, u Journal banned by
thc Canadian censor, but so full of
rich humor and comprehensive mendacity that It should be welcomed In
the Dominion by everyone who likes
a hearty laugh.
Culling Kir itobert Borden politely
"Canada's cruel satrap", The Fatherland, in horror-struck tones, tells the
hyphenated German-American the
most grisly tales of "outrages" perpetrated by the "cruel satrap" on the
Interned Germans In Canada. "At all
Canadian towns nnd countrysides, from
British Columbia to Quebec," writes
the lineal descendant of Ananias,
"The Canuck ran riot nnd typified him
self with brutal Cossack deeds. He
burned houses, plundered shops, and
stoned unoffending women and child
ren In city streets and on country
roads. No one deterred him. German,
Austrian and Hungarian men and women were dragged from tlieir homes
and slaughtered In tlie open. Native-
born sons, who defended forelgn-bom
parents, were slain— the daughters
were brutalized by the mob. Then
these fathers who survived were dragged to desolate detention tumps, old
sheds, open to winter winds and rains,
flung into factory ovens, starving, and
left unclad. Tlio mortality among
them was frightful. The permanent Illness worse. One-third of these men
can never work again, and they have
been lured into this country, remember
by the soft persuasions of the men who
had done them these wrongs. And
their wives and children in rags today
still roam the streets and byways of
Canadian cities, butts of tho mocking
mob. begging in vain for food and shelter."
A couple of columns of rubbish of
this kind follow, climax being heaped
on climax until an appropriately insane conclusion Is reached in the following words:
"After the mob nnd massacre In
Canada the Canuck stopped, breathless and terrified by his own work
Factories had been ruined, forms
burned down, and unemployment began to rolso his grisly head. 'Hie
dreadful fact was driven hotn-l to the
plutocrats of Kngland that Knglish
workmen, whom they hnd ground
down to pauperism, would absolute!)
not go to war with them. They conferred and sent out InHtructlors to
their satraps In many lands: 'Drive
In the men from the colonies aud
make them fight."
The Hymn of Hate wan mild In
compnrlson with this; the Madrigals
of Malice were but lyrical benevolence: the Howls of Horrors, but
trifles of affection and esteem. This
Is the last and greatest of the Jokes
of the enemy and it does not need a
hectic description of Sir Itobert Borden and Sir Sam Hughos as "two
pitiful figures with lined faces and
downcast spirits slinking In obscure
hotels in New York" to lend nn elr
of mendacity to nn otherwise wild
and unconvincing narrative.
We beg the censor to let down tbe
bars and admit The Fatherland. Tt
would be a source of never-ending
amusement to the Canadian people;
they would revel Just ns much In Its
rich outpourings of intoxicated Ms-
saurisin as the British "Tommy" does
when he Imperils his life In the
trenches in an endenvor to hear tlie
Huns chant tho "Yum of llltc" before they lie them down to sleep.

The Rev. W. K. Thomson preached
a strong recruiting sermon Sunday
night last. The British Kmplre Is the
greatest empire tlie world has ever
seen. It is lu need nf our service. "Is
it worth fighting for? Is it worth
dying for?" While making a strong
plea for able-bodied men to rally to
the defence of the flag which stands
for justice, liberty, and fair play, Mr.
Thomson believed that it was a mutter
of conscience to eacli individual who
ther or not he should enlist.

In tlie Installation and operation ol
.t Creamery, or other Institutions, no
great advance can be made without*)
o-operntion, centralization of effort
and power. Local journuls can be of
great assirtance iu disseminating the
knowledge necessary to attract practical interest in the upbuilding of industries for which this district Is emin-
intly suited, the development of which
means much not only to the producer
but to every citizen directly or indirectly. For years past a Creamery
has been talked about aud several
ichemes suggested but none so far
appeal to the Indigent farmers, and
without their enthusiastic work and
support It can never be a success.
In business propositions the first
things to consider are tlie obstacles |
md difficulties nnd how to overcome
them; the chief one Is lack of capital
and until that question is dealt with
there will be very little cream for n
Creamery; to nsceitain how many
cows are iu the neighborhood provides
no criterion as to how much cream 1?
available, most of the cows in this
district are kept for stock raising, not
cream producers; tlie kind dairymen
require have to be imported and it will
take considerable capital to provide
good milkers to produce enough for a
very small creamery.
Another problem that must he dealt
witli is that not many farmers are
producing feed required for the production of butter fat, although they
may have plenty of feed for wintering
range cattle, and tliat Is a matter that
will not adjust itself but requires foresight and preparations mnde ahead, for
whilst a dairyman who retails milk
and cream can nfford to buy all foodstuffs and still make ?1 per day profit from an avc.r.g.^ talrly ( lu ixw,-,
he could not If supplying cream to n
crenmery make SOc profit even If Iw
'-ot 35c per lb. for his butter fat.
For instance, at 10c per quart n
dair>mian makes $4.00 per 100 lbs. of'
milk, which should contain II to 4 per
"ent fat, 4 lbs. of butter fat nt 35-
•,'ivcs $1.40 In place of $4.00 for hh
milk—true he hns his skimmed milk
left but thnt Is not of equal value tr
the $2.(10 balance against him. It
therefore follows that the dairy farmers to make a permanent success, must
grow food stuffs rich In protein, most
of whicli dairymen now import, but
capital Is needed says the would-be-
The above remarks are not cynical
criticisms which are destructive; hut a
fair analysis to bo followed by constructive and practical suggestions, all
will agree tliat if a creamery was
equipped, started nnd leased the lessee
could not remain long if there war*, n
shortage of cream for an Indefinite
period, he would have nothing to iu-
duce him to stay.
Ity Cn.operation
On the other hnnd, if all concerned
havo n permanent Interest in such
ventures as intended (and provided
for) under tho Agricultural Association Act tiiere would be hopes of certain succoss.

Mm Government witli tho object of
formulating ideas and practically assisting in the development of the agricultural resources of the country. Tt
Is said they (tho Institutes) have labored like the mouiitnln but the mouse
is still in embryo. Maybe Its nrrlva'
hus only been delayed, perhaps a few
gentle progs may Induce them to make
a stupendous effort, or a brilliant
Idea may strike them suddenly, like
one struck the poor fellow who war
confined in a loathsome dungeon for
years when suddenly a brilliant iflen
struck him--he opened the window and
got out—Artemus Ward labelled it,
"this is not writ sarkastlk."

Farmers will appreciate the fact that
the "window" Is open, that at one fell-
swoop a Paternal and Conservative
Government has struck off tlie financial shackles, hitherto rlvettod so well
ind sure, tliat if a poor farmer wanted
?100 wherewitli to buy a cow If he had
twice $20 towards It he could not borrow the balance from tbe modern Shy-
lock except at usurious rates of interest and compounded every month, and
besides that the danger ot being forced
to realize at a moments notice and his
herd of two or less cows, Ills means of
subsistence, walked off by the Sheriff.
Farmers, industrious and frugal men,
this means your emancipation from
noslttve serfdom, a glorious vista is
opened up whereby you can transform
East Kootenay Into a veritable (not
■iromised) land, flowing with milk and
honey, a much easier and more proflt-
tble avocation thnn growing the "big
red apples" of which we have too many
md our American cousins are in the
same fix through overproduction.
For many years you cannot overproduce butter, cream and cheese, you
have generous merchants wbo offer to
'aUo more than you can produce at
top prices.
The Latest System
The latest system of extracting but-
ler from cream is worth study and
nvestigatlon, it differs from the old
■hurnfng process, the separation of the
'nitter globules from the cream Is ef-
'nctcd hy centrifugal force and the
•oration of the cream. It Is claimed
hat tliis process is much superior to
hat of a churn which beats nnd whips j
'lie cream which Is apt to break-the
-rain and destroys tiie texture of the
'uitter granules which mix with milk
solids and produces butter that qulck-
'y goes rancid. Churns leave from
nne to four per cent of butter fat ln
'he butter-milk, analytical tests show
'hat tlie new method leaves less than
one rnurth of one per cent of fat in
the bntter-mlllt. The makers of the
machine are nddlng some minor Improvements which will be finished In a
few days, they will then send a small
hand power mnchine-to Cranbrook for
'Mihlic demonstration of which duo notice will be given.
Now for the practical part of tbe
husluoss, a declaration lins already
'ieen Drawn up nnd nn application for
Incorporation, as required by the Act,
has been signed by farmers and dairy
''eople, male and female, under the
titlo of:—
The   Kootenay  Farmers* Industrial
formed for alt or part of thnt purposes
■et forth under .Section 21 of the Act
ts may he decided by the subscribers
•hereto; this is not a close corporation
'mt ypen to all nrltlsh subjects resident In the KootennyB; ns set forth hi
'he Act the business of such associations wilt bo under the direct nnd
strict supervision nf the Government,
therefore this venture wltl not be por-
mtUr-d to be nf a bnrn-bralned typo, as
wo hnve a Husiness man with a big
IV at tlie helm. B In Prance was

ritfelscd. may retort that tliey elected
