common factor. Everyone knows
dial ii is ,i much easier accomplishment, to make M.idhl out of (1,000
than to make $1,000 out of nothing, ami so in speaking about ilu*
improvement of a locality. Although
lor some few years past tlie Cranbrook district has neon forging ahead;
in a quiet way, tho advance has not,
boon phenomenal antl it would give
some difficulty, to almost anyone to
lay a finger on any particular spot
ami say: "Here is a remarkable
change"—and yet the Improvement
from year to year has been noticeable.
This year would probably be put in
the same category if the anticipations fm* next year were not so ex-,
oe-cdingly strong, ami there is no
doubt hut tliat this year is a connecting link between Was heretofore1
progress ami the jump into the li.r.f.-
Take for instance laml values; these j
have risen abnormally, because it is
demonstrated that fruit can be raised
successfully ami the government has

incoming settlers with advice ami experience. It Is difficult for an ordinary outsider to estimate the difference this makes to would-be Investors, between laml that may posslbl)

Why are the wooden buildings in
the town being replaced by brick,
stone ami concrete? Exactly for tlu
same reason. The doubtful period
bas passed ami we know and arc assured tbat the country Is on a com
mercial foundation with successful
fruit and mixed farming, a permanent
mining industry, ami a remunerative
lumbering trade lor guarantees, ami
wben we consider the extent ol the
farming and grazing lands ami the
large unexplored and unprosnected
mineral areas, whal lurther guarantees do-es future prosperltj  require?
Coming down to concrete facts—

of tho Windecmero Valley district,
tin* Nelson News has the following to say:
What is known as the Windermere
district of lho Columbia valley ol
tin- province of llritish Columbia U
one of the last great valleys of the
south eastern portion of this province tn be opened for settlement, and
a way made for development of Its
industrial possibilities ami tbe forming ol a greal national play ground.
Windermere district proper, nestles
between the Rocky Mountains on tho
east autl the Selkirk Mountains on
the west. its eastern boundary
narks the western limit of the province of Alberta, its southern outlet is
at Cranbrook on the Crows Nest
I'ass branch of the C.P.R. and its
northern entry port [a Oolden, on
the main line to Vancouver. At present the only means of transportation is In roads in winter ot hy
stenmi i on the Columbia river in
summer, but tbe C.P.R. are rapidly
pushing fm ward a branch of their
system, to In* known as the Kootena*. Central railway, which will connect Ihe two extremes ol the valley.
Contracts have already been let tor

this line and through travel should

Wnh lhe completion of this railway
it is expected (bat a branch line will
be extended over the mountains up

again   until the enthusiasm subsided.
Trenchant in bis criticism ot a government which has marked time for
three months, lias heen afraid to announce a policy on any great issue;
and which bus been dominated by the
Monk-Hourassa element, Sir Willrid
iu ringing words denounced Nationalism and all oilier extreme "isms"
and declared for a sane Imperialism
and dominant Canadlanlsm. splendid
was his effort when he expressed regret that the fanners of Western
Canada were denied the market which
they so much desired. A market
which would have added to their
prosperity and al the present time
would have been a Clod-send to them.
Hi* deelared that the principle of
freer markets would live, tliat the
present prosperity of Canada was
due to iln* great expansion of m**
kets made possible under the Liberal
policy, mnl that if llie Hritish
people were to resort to protection
il  would spell disaster to Canada.
The meeting, which was held undei
the auspices ol the association of
Voting Liberals, was presided over by
Mr Victor Beique and upon the
platform wllh Sir Wilfrid Laurier
were several of his late ministers.
Including Hon. Sydney Fisher. Hon.
flco. Graham, Hon. Mackenzie King
ami  lion. Charles Murphy.
Sir Wilfrid I.aurier. who was the
recipient ol a couple of botyqucta from
a little girl and who was received
with prolonged oval ions, suggested
that if ,i stranger were coming tu
the citv who ttid nol know anything
of recent history, he would, tm see-

acclamations, ite lei to believe ihat

Think what that means! The Edition

exactly suited to your home; because
it plays both Edison Standard and

Ittxwnls; because it hns the sapphire
reproducing-polnt that docs not
scratch or wear the records, and lasts
forever—gives yon this great home-

a sound-reproducing fn&t rumen I.
Most Eaison styles are regularly
equipped to make records at home,
liecording wjuipmriit for styles not

When you goto your Edison dealer

thai a Bow days ago the Nationalists
made overtures to Sir Willrid l-atir-

into the Liberal fold.
Sir Willrid replied thei so long as
he remained al tin* head ol the
Liberals tbe party would have nothing to do wilh tho Nationalists '»r
their po-Hcle* 01 course, Mr. llourassa did nol go hVmaell to Sir Wilfrid. Tin- Nationalist leader was

at" no kinn. at hand to dispose of.
Mis recent attack on the belligerent
minister of militia is taken ns an
index ol what his views of the new
cabinet are. It is well known that
Mr. llourassa had planned to make an
attack on Mr. Borden, Colonel Sam
Hughes, antl other members af the
cabinet, at tin- forthcoming banquet
of Le Devoir's supporters. The banquet nan been postponed In order
to give the government an opportunity to weM   to the liery  Nationalist

In recent articles it has been

are represented on the boards nl our

Evidently "Tlie Private Secretary
has onco more caught the public
fancy, judging from the way it was
received on its late revival in New
York, wherr it broke all records at
[he Empire theatre. This laughable
play has long been acknowledged to
be one of the foremost of the high-
class American comedies. The story
is an intensely Interesting one, hut
at thu same time absolutely clean
and pure. The plot is not, in the
main, an improbable one. It i*
made up of Incidents that are not
improbable in themselves, indeed
most ol them could very easily occur
iu everyday life, but they are so
uniquely grouped that the effect is
absolutely irresistible. The whole
play is a series ol comparatively natural situations but these, by reason
ol their relation to each other, make
up a succession of events that are as
a whole Irresistibly funny. The dialogue is extremely witty and sparkling (mm beginning to end aud the
effervescent wit and line literary finish of the whole comedy constitute
one of its greatest charms.
Mr. r. James Bancroft, the eminent
English comedian, has delighted Loudon with his interpretation of "The
Private Secretary," playing the part
of the (lev. Robert Spauldiug over
two thousand five hundred times, lie
has surrounded himself with the same
company ol Knglish artists that met
wiHh such unanimous approval in

Ai ttte annual meeting of the Mountain l.timlni Manufacturers OSSOCla-
llon to Im- held at Nelson, January
mli,   1912, the following resolutions
will Im* proposed by A. K. Watts.
1. That this association tender its
Ihanks for ami expresses its high ap
prodatlon of the many efforts made
wlth the view of olitaiiiing Justice
and protection for the lumber industry, by the various boards of trade in
the province during several years
past, and tbal we especially wish io
convey our thanks to the president nf
the Associated Hoards of Trade and
lhe eit-i/etis of Nelson for their uioial
sii|i|nirt uml Ibe many courtesies e\-
ii-nded to this association, which has
been a source ol gratification felt by
t-vi-iy imIimiIii.ii member but so far
h it without niTiciai recognition.
2. That whereas al lhe last animal
meeting resolutions wero unanimously
passed condemning "Iteciprocity*1 ns
being Injurious lo the fruit and lum
bet  Industries*, that  wcare aware   ol
tbe fait Hui afterwards a few Individual members who voted for the re
solutions, publicly it'iland in lavoi
of tin* opposite, but that no official
of ihis association was ever author*
i/od to speak in favor of reciprocity;
that We were and are in favor of pro*
iti'tion not only to the lumber in
duslrv but all others in Canada, and
consider that the fruit intlustit
should Ik* encouraged Ity every possible means, unit placed at least on
an equal basis of exchange With
American fruit.
-I. That the t'licouraging ami fostering of the milling Industry is of
paramount Importance to this province.
I. It is therefore resolved that the
executive board of this association
is hereby empowered and directed to
work in unison with the boards of
trade and the representatives ol other Industries, for the purpose of maintaining a vigorous and united campaign to educate Hie publie of Can-
itd.i, and win their support in aid of
justice, heing aware ol the fact that
no wrongs can In- righted nor much
impression made on the authorities
without the BUppoH ot public opinion.
6. That this association wishes to

nf ihc Canadian public from whom
the railway companies obtain their
stibsistance, and fiom whom Ihey obtained kingdoms of land, limber and
other concessions, besides huge sums

these operations usually provided
the means ol stibsistance to thousands of pom* homesteaders from the

hundreds of miles. The many million dollars usually paid to
ihe pralrlc pn vlnces for agricultural
products used iu mills and camps
hate gone to support a fureign eoun-

by farmers, lumbermen of all kinds,
and tin- allied   trades and merchants.
