"THE JEWBIXR"
A SPLENDID MEETING.
I'Hl*: RATE PAYERS DISCUSSED
TIIK   PROPOSED     ELECTRIC
LIGHT BY-LAW.
Tlie public meeting railed hy the
city council for last Tuesday evening
(or Uie purpose of discussing the proposed electric light by-law was one
of llie very best ever held in Cranbiook. The ball was fairly well
crowded, and the meeting was truly
a representative one. Alderman J.
P. Fink was called to the chair anil
City Clerk Roberts was named as
secretary. Those present were disposed to treat the proposition fairly,
ami some were there lo express their
opinions, hut the great majority desired to secure information. It was
demonstrated before llie dose of the
meeting that every man was loyal to
Craubrook ami Cranbrook institutions, but thnl naturally there was
a difference of opinion here and there
as lo bo Ihe best policy to pursue.
The great advantage to both tlio
Electric Light company ami tbo
people, was ibe free nml untrntnmcled
expression of opinion that prevailed,
ami in consequence the subject was
handled in an Intelligent manner and
nil points connecled with the proposed hy l.iw were presented ami
thoroughly threshed out. It was
evident Hint nl the start of the
meeting there were many who were
Undecided as to what attitude they
would assume, ami thev listened attentively to all that was snid ami
Ihe ureal majority seemed satisfied
at the close of the meeting that tho
company was disposed to do what
was rfehf', that, the by-law was*
hedged in by restrictions that would
properly protect the property owners, nnd that it should he passed
to assist Cranlirook in its onward
movement. The idea of municipal
ownership was presented, and wen;
the conditions favorable nt this
time, there is no doubt hut that the
idea would have prevailed with th*
meeting, hut an exposition of the
facts plainly demonstrated that it
was practically impossible for the
cltv to assume the responsibilities of
such a financial burden when the borrowing powers of the municipality
ami Its needs for Ihe next two or
three years were taken into consideration.
Chairman FinV called on R, E.
neat-tie to present the case nf tbe
Electric Light eompanv, nnd that
gentleman did so in a frank and
open manner. He told the people
what the company wanted to do In
the way of extending their plant, but
that they could do nothing until the
people had given their consent. It
meant nn expenditure of $10,000 to
fOfl.OOfi to put In a dam on St-
Marvs river and bring the current
tn Cranhrook, and    unless the eom-
Rmiy could have the assurance of suf-
clent time to pay hack this money,
no financial Institution in the world
would loan thorn tho necessary money
nnd for thin reason they asked (or
2o years   Issndilw.      Tm coapup
was willing to give a ten per cent j
reduction to the people after the;
plant was installed anil I!5 per centj
to ihe city. The company would'
guarantee 'to deposit in the Imperial
hanb for 30 days $27,00(1 worth of
stock so that thu people of Cranbrook might have an opportunity fo
subscribe to the enterprise and bn
part owners.
Mr. -Beattie was followed by City
Solicitor Thompson, who carefully
prcsenled the legal phases of the
quest ion and showed the people
wherein their rights lay.
There were short talks made bv
Alderman Gill, J. A. Harvey,
Thomas .Drunimottd, .1. V. Armstrong, Sam MacDonald, .1. F. M.
Pinkham, \V. F. Tate, F. E. Simpson, .lames Henderson, James Ryan,
W. fl. Morton ami Willi,un Flowers.
Messrs. Macdonald and Drummond
were strong advocates of municipal
ownership. Alderman (iill favored
Ihe passing of the by-law, but insisted on the rights of the people being protected. Air. Armstrong
Wanted the necessary concessions to
the people so that value m.Rht he
received for the privilege granted,
ami suggested a certain per cent of
the gross receipts of the company to
to be based ou a graduated scale.
Mr. Ryan, who is one of the stockholders, slated lhat if lhc city desired to buy the electric light ami
telephone business, or the electric
light business alone, tiro company was
perfectly willing to soil. That if
the by-law failed to pass it would
he necessary for lhc company to do
one of two things the 1st of October,
either to shut down thi- plant entirely or cut out a number of consumers, as it would he Impossible to
carry tho present load during tin-
long nights.
There was considerable friendly
sparring during the evening, but good
feeling prevailed and the true urnn-
brook spirit was on top all of tho
time. It was a great meeting and
enmvineed those present t-lnti the
people of Cranhrook favored progress,
favored the go-ahead movement, favored a greater Cranhrook, favored
all that would brim*, increased prosperity to Cranbrook ami increased
value's to Cranbrook property.

LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.
Victoria, March 20.—Bills to amend
the Investment and loan societies act,
and tbe railway assessment ant
were Introduced by special message,
and read the first time. The provision of the latter bill will enable
municipalities, not heretofore so empowered, to tax the real property of
railway companies within the limits
of the municipality. Several bills
were advanced, aud Williams moved
the second reading of liis bill respect ing the payment of workmen's
wages, the chief provisions of which
are: Every workman, employee or
servant, which tiie rale of wages
does not exceed $4.00 per day, shall
be paid at intervals not to exceed
once every two weeks. No contract
shall be entered into that provides
for payment of wages ut longer intervals than once iu two weeks. lu
tbe absence of any agreement binding
both parties to a lower contract to
give notice of the termination thereof, all wages due a workman, employee or servant shall be paid forthwith upon such person ceasing to
work or being discharged. Any employer, who contravenes the provisions of this section, shall be liable
to a penalty nol exceeding $50.
Premier McBride moved the adjournment of the ib-bate.
Voluminous and comprehensive returns have just been presented to tbe
legislature by Premier McBiide dealing with the question of the province's reversionary interest in the
lands covered by Indian reserves.
This return, comprising several hundred pages of typewritten manuscript ami including not only all
papers in the case collected by the
provincial ollici.ils, but also (attached) the return on the same subject
presented recently to the Dominion
house by the responsible minister,
.Much old ground Is necessarily covered, hut there is also a modicum of
new and very interesting material.
The reliiripiishmeut by the Indians
of their rights shows that care has
been taken in providing for the well-
being of the prospective as well as
the present federation. In abstract,
trhts agreement provides that the
chiefs and principal men of the
Mctlakahtla aud Tsimpsean tribes
acting on behalf of the whole people,
in council assembled, assign and surrender to the crown all that tract of
land lying in ihe country of Atlin and
containing approximately 13,510
acres composed of portions of the reserve of Kaien and Dighy Islands
and of the mainland reservation bordering on Tucks Inlet and Venn passage; these lands to be held by the
government of Canada in trust to be
disposed of upon such terms as may
be deemed hy the government of
Canada best fcrV the welfare of the
Indians, nod, on the further condition
that all moneys received from th,*ir
disposal or sale, shall, after   deduc-

(Victoria Dally Colonist.) i
An address ol remarkatolg interest.
was delivered by .1. s. IJ-onnis, luml
uommissioner ol the Canadian l*acl(le
Itailwny company yesterday, at tlie
second luncheon ol the Canadian club
whose nuesi lu- was on lhat occasion.
The gathering was at the Poodle
Dog restaurant and the chair was
occupied by A. W McCunly, president
of the tlub.
lu Introducing the sneaker, Mr
McCucdy said:
"1 have much pleasure in unnouue*
nig that since out hist meet Ing u
Canadian club has, been organ teed at
Halifax, N. S., thus completing tlie
chain ol national clubs extending
across Cti'iradn from ocean to ocenn.
"We arc fortunate in having as our
gnesl to-day the leprvscntiitive of a
Canadian institution which bus
rivaled Ihe greatest system lor ho*
iierinl development that tho world
has ever seen.
"1 have lhc honor to present .1. S,
Dennis, of the Canadian -Pacific Iti il
way company, who will address us
upon that part of their vast svstem
Which applies  to western Canada."
Mr. Dennis spoke as follows:
"Mr. chairman and gentleman of
Ihe Victoria branch of the Canadian
club, I appreciate very 'highly the
invitation extended to me tn iie with
you to-day, and to address you on a
subject that should he near to the
heart of every Canadian, 'The. Development of Western Canada.'
"1 am presuming to speak to you
on this important subject because my
life's wnrk has heen more or less
Intimately conm-cied with ihe settlc-
meiil and development of tliis great
western portion of our Dominion.
"Landing in Winnipeg in May, IS72,
I have spenl the intervening thirty*
| live years in moving west in connection with the exploration, survey and
development of our west until 1 now
find myself al the western gateway
of our great Dominion on the Pacific
ocean. Mv duties and western movements during that 3fi years, in the
service of the Dominion government,
ihe Hudson's Hay company, the Territorial government, east of llie
mountains, and lastly wilh the Canadian Pacific railway", have brought
me more or less closely in touch
with the development which has already taken place, and given me
some strong opinions us to whut we
may look for in the future. These
facts regarding the past and hopes
for Ihe future are what 1 wish to lay
before you to-day.
"I noticed lately lhat an address
preseiitiil to another branch of the
Canadian club referred to the fact
that Canada seemed to be the only
country where it was found necessary
through the medium nf a club to try
and arouse a national spirit. Well,
whether It is necessary or not, 1 am
<j;lad to note that all over Canada
the movement towards establishment
of branches ol the Canadian club and
feel sure that this movement is hound
to do much towards making us all
realize the potential greatness of our
Dominion, and we should be glad to
take even the smallest part in aiding her development and advancing
our common Canadian citizenship.
"Thirty-live years ago western Can
aria wns a name only. Those of the
fathers of confederation who worked
so hard to create our Dominion, who
had the hardihood to foretell that the
jjrent western portion of the Dominion would, within a measurable time
occupy the position it now occupies,
were certainly characterized as visionaries, if nothing more.
"ThirtyHive vears ago, Winnipeg.
now the great' city at the eastern
limit ol this great western country,
a city which has surprised North
America as a whole in the marvelous
rapidity of its growth and extension
in the last ten years at [past, was a
small, isolated' village, surrounding
the old Hudson's Hay post at Port
(Jarry, and was reached only in the
summer bv boat or steamer down
the lied'rivet, or by a long, three
hundred mile stage journey iu tbe
winter.
"It was popularly accepted at that
time that the western limit ol the
habitable portion of our west, and
(tie western limit of agricultural and
wheat growing land lay about sixtv
miles to the west of Winnipeg,
"There are gentlemen sitting at
Ihis board who are old Winnipeggers
like myself, and who remember that
years after the time 1 speak of It
was the popularly accepted idea thai
the Red Kivcr valley, the limits of
which extended some 60 or 70 miles
to the west of Winnipeg, eontained
the country in which the wheat
would be grown, and outside of that
it would be nonsense to think ot
growing grain. That vast country
to the west now comprising the
province of Manitoba and the provinces of .Saska.chcwnn and Alberta,
was practically unknown. It was
popularly supposed that the great
American desert, of which so much
had been written, extended up into
that country, and that it wns total
ly uiisuited for grain production, and
was practically, unfit for human haWH
ation. And of the great province
lying on the Pacific at that time
little was known, except by the hardy
gold seeker. British Columbia was
practically unVnown to the rest of
Canada at that time.
"The province of "British Columbia
I will deal with more particularly,
later on. But I wish to say now in
passing that this province has been
richly endowed in nature and in natural resources than has any other
portion of Canada. (Cries of hear,
hear, and loud applause.)
"With regard to that portion ot
llie country lying east of the mountains, as I have said before, It- was
looked upon as being largely desert.
It it was desert, it was general I v
spoken of us being as near the North I
Pole that it is onlv suitable for the |
festive Arctic tisquiinuna or the
hardy Hudson's Bay man who was
looking for furs.
"It is true that that hardy band
of explorers—Palliser, Hector, Milton,
Cheadle, Bussel, and later on Butler,
wrote extensively of that country,
cmbodU'd in exhaustive reports, and
endeavored to create a correct Impression ot its clinuvtc, its soil and
possible resources. But their writings at that time attracted very
little attention. And I think it
quite proper tbat w« should say   »t
a   Wonderful  Province
Dennis.)
ihis meeting of the Canadian club
■hat. those trainers of our treaties,
who had so much to do wilh the tiling of our boundaries must have been
impressed by the fad that that point this western country lying east
of the mountains lay near the North
Pole, and was an aid if ami useless
region, And it is popularly supposed
ili.it they Wore hillueiiced in the opinion thai British Columbia salmon
■vere not sporting Huh and could nol

i remote and    Isolated country, un-
fulted largely     lor sell lenient.'   and
'bat so far us British Columbia w
concerned it was praoUeaUy a timllw
ill wilderness.
"That general conception with
;ard to western Canada praolica
continued until (bat very intrepid
IhuhI of surveyors, employed in surveying and laying oul the survey system east of the mountains, luui lai'go
y dispelled the erroneous impres-
dons with regard to the soil and
•Innate, because they took their
lives iu their hands and saw the

uu-te was like in the summer There
ivere many who had to spend the
■."inter iu the country, and found that
hey could live out door, under canvas' in the winter, uud suffer no    In*
■(invenieiice.
"TOiese   reports,
think,     ihe firs)
.vhich    ihe   widely
I say, were, 1
medium through
•cepted   theory
ivilh regard to Ihe country wns   ilis-
■lelled.
"Tbey were followed by that band
if eng-iiiecrs who were engaged in attempting to locate a mad tor that
ileel hand across Canada, which was
aihsiuguciitly huilI and which has
lone so much to awaken Canadians
io their great inheritance and give
impetus tn a development that is
low spoken <if throughout the world.
(Applause.)
"1 am very proud, Mr. chairman
ind genllemcn, to belong to ibe profession that supplied these early pioneers iu tlio exploration wnrk of our
*reat wesi, and to a profession
which furnished men who have clone, I
think, as much as any other men in
Canada tl bring lo the notice of
Canadians themselves, anil the world
it large, Uie possibilities of our
western country. (Cries of hear,
hear—loud  applause.)
"It is imt. my intention, gentlemen, to deal in detail with the
development which has taken place in
western Canada. That is a matter
of the pasl, and we cannot correct
oj_L' mistakes. 1 only wish to refer
incidentally to the development
which has taken place, and ask you
to devote what time you can give mo
iu listening to what 1 think is going
to take place. (Hear, hear.) Therefore, 1 want to say this. Even
after ihe construction of the Sauad-
iau Pacillc railway; after that road
was in operation from the Atlantic
to the Pacific, I personally know
from my own experience, that a
large number of the people who
I raveled over that road—say from
here until they had reached the
-ictiliii portions of eastern Canada-
were very hard to impress with any
reasonable idea as to why that road
was ever built. When you loltl them
that east of the mountains and 200
miles north of them was the great
Saskatchewan valley, a country regarding which I haic been very enthusiastic for the last 26 or 30
years, they smiled politely. And
when you came to discuss the /question o'f British Columbia, no doubt
ihere are gentlemen here, who
travelled over that road, who will
remember that at that time they
would admit the onlv. usefulness ol
-he Canadian Pacific through British
Columbia was to provide a scenic
road, which even then they admitted
md some merits. I have heard the
statement made time and time
ign-rn in those days of the early
-onslructinii 0f the Canadian Pacillc
through western Canada, that it
simply connected a western wilderness on the Pacific with a barren
waste cast of the mountains So
that our development, while it was
iss-isted in many ways by the construction of thai road, it did not
really commence until some years
ifter Its completion.
"I think, Mr. Chairman, that we
after the construct ion of the Canad-
club iu western Canada, where wc
-ere discussing any question connected with the development of western
Canada, place on record our appreciation of the great work done in Ihe
development of the province now
constilii-ting western Canada by the
oionecr merchants, pioneer seltiers
mm I Ihose pioneers who gave their
lives in a great inntiy cases in Ibe efforts lo prove that we had a country
which Wits worth while for people to
come nml live in. (Loud applause.)
We mus1 not forgo!, gentlemen, that
those nionecrs for many years after
their location were cut off from all
the comforts, from nil Ihe accessories which are gencrallv supposed to
make life pleasant. TIit-v fought a
'innl fiitfil, uud put up with many
hardships. And through it all the
maiorilv of them have remained
faithful lo the west, and settlements
have sprung up from them, and the
results ohta-ined from their efforts
have done more to dispel the erroneous impressions existing throughout
the world with regard to western
Canada than anything else has ever
done.     (Cries nf 'hear, hear.')
"The waiting tot" a movement in
the development nf western Canada
was very long, and very sore to a
great many of us. ' There are gentlemen sitting here who, like myself,
hack in Manitoba and Winnipeg in the
early 80's, thought we could hurrv
the procession ns it were hv what
are now practically characterized as
the buom methods. There are later
eases where gentlemen attempted the
same hurrying of the procession,
Well, gentlemen, most of us bur tied
our lingers, if nothing more. It was
not until curtain tilings took place
that we began to realize any marked
development in western Canada. Ami
1 would like to give you shortly my
ideas as to wlin-l produced that remit.
"At that time we had a country
which was practically unknown, and
what Wiis known was not to our
redii. The accepted theory was
that any couiiuy north of the -tilth
larallel (jfteretf no inducements for
igrieiiltural, horticultural or other
levelopiiieut.
"The Dominion government and the
local government of this province and
id Die province of Manitidm, after it
was  COUStltUted,      and     subsequently
the Territorial government east of
ibe mountains, in conjunction with
corporations like the Canadian Pacini- K.lilway company, ihe Hudson's
Bay company ami others, have spent
very large sums of money in advertising our. western country, ami in
i-iide,i\oi uie, to prove to tlie people of
Canada ami elsewbeie th.it we have
here a country to which they could
.mil. fnr success, a country which of*
,'ercd them something which was
worth t'lieli while coming to get.
Bui il took years and years of lhat
-ampaigu ami vast expenditure before
we got lo the point when the generally accepted theory with regard to
the suitability of western Canada
was set to one side.
"As soon iis Unit came about and
as soon as Ihe great areas to the
south of us became pretty thorough*
ly settled, we then began to ex-
lerience a movement in the development of of what 1 characterize as
western Canada. 1 am speaking now
particularly of that portion of the
■ountry east ot the mountains, to
cause there the development has heen
more marked, and 1 want to point
mt later why that development,
which has been so marked there, is
jolng lo have a great reflex action
hi the development of British Columbia,
"ll was not, gentlemen, until that
•rinueous impression bad been largely dispelled that we began to get an
overflow of people from the south ot
the line; and in 1802 we had an intlow
if nearly 8,Olid people from the south
if the boundary line. They* were
lioiieers, and were hard to get. They
■iiuie to this country in doubt.
Many of them, I expect', were in fear
i ml trembling as to whether they
would ever gel hack. But that
lionccr band bus grown until last
year we g*nt from the south of the
louudnry, and located in the new
irovlnccs to the east ol the mountains, a population of 3*13,01)0 people.
Cries of hear, hear.) Now that
noveinent, commencing us it did in
he year I have mentioned, has continued until it has assumed the pro*
portions I have spoken of, ami it
hns hud this effect thtoughout the
world to-day that it is now popularly accepted, Uie country widen has
ittractcd Unit Immigration from tho
United Slates is the kind of country
which is worlh while coming lo. And
there is no doubt at all that the
movement of the people from the
south of the liiu1 to our country, east
of the mountains, Ims done more to
assist in getting immigration from
northern Europe and Oie.it Britain
than anything else that has happened.
It is founded on ihe generally accepted theory that where there is
anything good, the Yankee goes after
it.     (Cries of hear, hear.)
"Now, I have endeavored to give
you an idea of the conditions as lliey
existed prior lo that movement.
Many of you gentlemen are familiar
with' them. I simply wunl now to
lay before you in a concrete form
the movement of people tbat is
growing like a snowball, which has
resulted in the development of this
western port-ion ol Canada. Just
let us start from the conditions as
they are to-day, and I will endeavor
to lay before you my views as to our
future development aud the part thai
the Canadian club should take in
(•hat development. (Cries of hear,
hear.) That movement ot people
which commenced in the year 11105
has rolled up until to-day wcstdrn
Canada is recognized not only as tho
greatest portion of our great Dominion, hut an important part in our
British Empire, and stands with
cities like Winnipeg, Vancouver aud
Victoria at its eastern and western
gateways, with hundreds of other
thriving cities, towns and villages
within its borders—cities lying along
the Canadian Pacific line like Brandon, Moose .law, Medicine Hat, and
British Columbia cities like Revel-
stoke, Kossluvd, Craubrook, Nelson
.uul Kamloops, cities up in the northern portion of the country in that
great Saskatchewan valley which up
to ten years ago—possibly not ten
years ago, but certainly 15 years
were looked upon as being absolutely worthless—cities like Edmonton, cities lying along the Canud-
Northeru Railway company's
line. Saskatoon is another instance
if the development ol this country,
When I was in the sprvice of the
Dominion government as deputy
minister of public works, I was ask-
d to visit Sa skid non for the purpose,
of constituting it a village, in the
" of 1808. A place like Saskatoon ,
has grown so that its eitizens will
argue with yon, gentlemen. Unit
their real estate on the front street
is worth more than yours here.
"Now, these nre' the conditions
which existed as far as an urban
population is concerned, These cltloft
.ne. now rapidly Irccnbiliig grcnl ecu
lers of trade, and innn- than Unit
ureal industrial centers, something
which 15 or 20 years ago was
ridiculed with regard to western
Canada. I say 'ureal industrial centers,' such as Winnipeg, and other
places throughout the west, and
places in British Columbia. 'Industrial centers' to (lie extent that lu

to the south, or of Europe.
"Now, wc have those towns and
villages strung out along that great
system of railway to the east, and
in the provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia—wilh a population of a little
over 000,000 people, with an increasing population averaging 250,000 per
year. Think of what that means,
gentlemen. These figures, gentlemen,
were obtained from the census of recent years, and you will find that
Ihev are correct, as I hnve tiiken
some little trouble to get them. We
have in this country 7000 miles of
railway in operation, and at least
3000 miles under construction.     We

Courtesy, like charity, should begin

expect to find the same decree of

Is a gentleman in his home and
among tltose who comprise his immediate household, can be trusted to
do nothing unbecoming to a Rentle-
man when beyond the precincts of
home; hut the man who is courtesy
itself when abroad is oftentimes the
veriest boor within the confines of
his own dwelling place. Such a man
may prMe himsell on being a gentleman; but he is deficient in the elementary instincts ol the true type,
and is consequently somewhat akin
to a counterfeit that has obtained
more or less circulation among the
uninitiated, but it is nevertheless a
spurious coin, the worthlessness ot
which will lie discovered sooner or
later.
In Wiis enlightened twentieth century when farmers' wives have to be

urge mothers to train their boys
carefully to be tidy and considerate
ol the burdens they heap upon
women, rather than asking that they
may be permitted looser reins in the
household. These boys are to he the
men and homeraakers, and the habits;
o( early years will cling to them
through life. There are more wives
and housekeepers sta-ggering under
loads of work that careless men occasion than there are men driven to
the dramshop by too much nicety.

GOOD    HUMOR   A     PR10BLKSS
BOON.
There is but little doubt that good
humor is a priceless boon. It is the
oil that smooths many a rough place
In life which otherwise would he very
hard sledding. A man who can smile
at misfortune and the mistakes he
has made in life, and has the courage to correct them and work manfully to make amends, has that in
him which -deserves success in the
end. Ill humor sulks in its tent.
The sun never shines bright enough
to drive away tlie clouds of gloom
which continually surround it. It
has a snap and a snarl for any
who may attempt to,point out a heller way or offer a crumb of comfort
in case of real need. Good humor
rises to the occasion and meets mis
fortune with a smile, however much
the heart may be pained, forgetting
its own heart pains by lending a helping hand to those loss fortunate.
Good humor is a fortress, a strong
tower, where the possessor may flee
to gather strength for a renewed
battle with difficulty and danger
Good humor is simply invincible. A
man who laughs at misfortune and
sets his face bravely to do the right
Ood has given ' him to see it is
worth more to the world hy far than
the snarler who sets down amid a
broken fortune to bemoan his fate
and make life.a wilderness of woe fnr
every one within hailing distance.

She can come to a decision without
the slightest trouble of reasoning on
it; and no sane man can do that.
Six of them can talk at once and
get along first rate, and no two men
can do that.
She can safely stick fifty pins in her
dress while he is netting one under
his thumbnail.
She is as cool as a cucumber in
half .1 dozen tight dresses and skirts,
while a man will fret and fume and
growl in one loose shirt.
She can talk sweet as peaches and
cream to the woman she hatesy while
two men would be punching each
other's head before they had exchanged ten words.
She can appreciate a kiss from her
husband seventy-five years after the
marriage ceremony is performed
She can go to church and afterwards tell you what every woman
had on, and in some rare instances
can give you some faint idea what
the text was.
She can walk half the night with
a colicky baby in her arms without
once expressing the desire of murdering the infant
She can—hut what's the use? A
woman can do anything or everything and do it well.
She can do mote in a minute than
a man can do in an hour and do it
better.

than ever has been produced in North
Vmeriea, because the average annual
wheat production per acre south of
llie boundary line—even taking the
throat wheat producing states of Iowa
and Illinois when they were whe-at
stales, which Ihcy are not now. And
we can prove that in the western
portion of Canada east ot the mountains we can offer lo people facilities
for dairy farming, which it would
lie very haul lo equal elsewhere.
"When 1 look back, gentlemen,
twenty live or thirty years ago to
ihe conditions which then existed,
and then follow ou to the cities now
lui ill when' the development is so
marked, ami to the vast areas of
land that are devoted to the growth
uf grain and cattle, and the dairy
produce, il is Indeed wonderful, as
the accepted opinion at that early
date was that the country was totally imsuitcd for human habitation.
And when we look forward trom that
time to a period ot fifteen or twenty-,
years hence, to the existing conditions in British Columbia, for instance, am I not justified in saying
Hint we have conclusively dispelled
the erroneous impression which existed, and proved that our great western
country is one to which we cau invite people to come with every confidence?     (Cries of hear, hear.)
"Now, Mr. Chairman and gentlemen, I first wish to say to you in
connection with the development that
1 look for iu this western portion of
Canada, that the Canadian dubs,
should, iu my opinion, make it their
business to take a prominent part in
guiding that development along the
proper lines. We are getting into
Western Canada, gentlemen, a population, which, as 1 have said, is
creasing at. the rate ot 350,000 per
ittiuimi. We are getting all nationalities and all creeds. We are making
no distinction as to the people who
should come and throw in their lot
willi us. But wc are assuming certain responsibilities iu doing that.
It is not so apparent lo you gentlemen living iu British Columbia as it
is with those living east of the
mountains, and come more closely in
touch with tiie colonization of this
western country. You have, it is
true, in British Columbia, a question
which has been with you tor a long
time—a question of Oriental Immigration. But I am referring to the
immigration of the great Slavonic
races wc are getting cast of the
mountains, and outside of them, immigrants from all parts oi Great
Britain, from Northern Europe,
.Southern Russia, Irom Hungary, the
Latin races ot the south, so that
there are to-day constituencies ot the
local legislatures, both iu .Saskatchewan ami Alberta, where sixteen languages are spoken. Sixteen different
languages spoken iu some of those
oustituencies.
"I think, Mr. Chairman and
jcntleraen, that there is no f-ork the
Canadian club ot western Canada can
ilo lo equal that great work of attempting to assimilate lhat population so that they will become in
time good Canadian citizens. (Hear
hear.)
"The work, sir, must be done
through organization of this bind.
It is not work in which a government*
or political party can take anv part.
It is work which Canadians who
are proud of Canada, Canadians who
are in a position to devote some time
to the subject, must of necessity put
before these people, outside of their
religion or their nationality, the desirability of doing what bus been done
to such a great extent by the people
lo the south of us, and which has
done more than anything else in my
opinion to make 'the United States
the marvellous country it is to-day—
that work is to convince these people
that they have got to be a Canadian
first, no matter what thev were
originally. (Hear, hear.) 'And as
I have said, it can well be done
through the medium of the Canadian
clubs, We have before us a great
work in that line, and work which we
should all he proud to lake a    part

VOLUME 10, NO. 1.
This is number 1, volume 10, ol
the Cranbrook Herald.
It is wonderful what mutations
time has wrought in Cranbrook and
this district during that nine years.
When the Herald was first launched
Cranbrook had a population ot 30 ,
or 40 people, and the district was
virtually nil so tar as capital, manufacturing or production was concerned To-day Cranbrook has a population of 3000 and is conceded to be
one of the very best towns in the
interior of British Columbia aud
millions arc invested in Uie district.!

lue sidge wneie it pays out several
inousaiid dollars a year in wages

Improvements in the Herald. It bas
oniy one objeet in view, and that
is io push lorward Cranlirook and assist tne people of this territory in
securing success. It has labored
along that line in the past, and it
will continue to do so in the future
so long as the Old Mau has control.
The Herald wishes all of its readers a life of happiness, a lite of success and a life of contentment.
Cranbrook bas reached the stage
when tlie city needs a manager. Tbat
is to say, the town needs the services of an able mark, to supervise the
work and look after the interests ot
the taxpayers. The mayor Is the
man to do this, but a man who has
the brains to be mayor ot Cranbrook, is engaged in business for himself. He cannot afioid to give his
time to the city at a personal sacrifice. O. T. Rogers did that, and nobody appreciated the fact until he
Wiis out of ollice, and now everybody
is ready to concede that O. T. Rogers was an ideal mayor. He had tiia
intelligence, he had the executive a-btil*,
Ity, he possessed the natural savcy
to meet men ot all stations in lite
in a manner that would be a credit
to the city, he was broad-minded
enough »to realize that ut limes bis
way might not be the right way,
and he had the common sense to
acknowledge at all times that the
majority should rule. But such
men cannot lie expected to accept the*
office of mayor of Cranbiook and'
give their services gratis. It Is
worlh several thousand dollars a
year to Crairbrook, to have.* man*
like Mr. Rogers as mayor, but men
like him cannot accept tbe office
without great personal sacrifice.
Then why not do what is right-
Why should not the council pass a
by-law providing a salary ol at
least $1200 or $1500 a year lor the
mayor, and then the people will demand a first-class business man and
elect him, With a salary like that,
a business man could afford to give
a portion ot his time to the city's
welfare, and it would be money in
the pockets ot every taxpayer in the
town. Cranbrook needs sound business beads tor mayors, men who ap-;
predate the conditions in the west
aid will exercise good judgment and
keen intelligence in discharging tho
duties of the otbee. Let us pay the
mayor a salary that will warrant
a proper attention to tbe busiuess of
tho office.
VV. P, Evans, formerly publisher ol
.th.; Wiltner Outcrop, has issued bis

Glelchen Newspaper, at Oleiehen, Al-

Hon of the usual proportion for expenses of management, be dealt with

Fifty per cent ot the proceeds of

Interest thereupon, at current gojv-
irnment rates, to be paid annually
tti the band through the Indian agent
iii accordance with the resolution ot
ihe tribes, This is endorsed und as-
t, en ted to by a majority of the
bonds in council assembled.
The resolution of the Indians re
t.-rred to provides that the 5U per
lent of the proceeds shall be divided

The posilion of the provincial government is crystalled and emphasized iu au order iu council hearing ditto
of the 19th March instant. This re-
lets to the Dominion order in council
of the 21st September, 10OB, in which
ihe Dominion government accepts
surrender of the described portion of
lhc Tsiinpseiin Indian reserve in ordec
that the same may he sold to the
<i. T. P. railway company, and recommends that a formal notice of
that stile be forwarded to the proper
officials of the interested company.
The provincial government of B. 0,
takes the ground that their rights in
Hie lands in question having been
legally surrendered by the Indians,
the properties become, by virtue of
such surrender, lands of the crown as
represented by the government ot It.
<'., and as such only to be dealt with
hy the government of the province.
Vieloria, March 21.—To-day's   session was the   most interesting since
the legislature opened.      The    chief
i icident  Wiis tbe unanimous adoption
of the second reading of Hawthornlh-
waite's ttill to restrict the hours    of
labor ol smelter workmen to    eight.
The bill is worded practically   the
■-ame as the previous bills, the  principal clauses being as follows:
"No iierson   shall be employed
in or about any smelter, sorting,
handling,   removing    or smelting
ores or    matte in any    stage of
preparation,    for a longer period
than eight    hours In any twenty-
four hours.
•VAny owner, agent, or manager,
or anyone acting on their behalf,
employing anv workmen or person
In contravention ot this net, shall
be liable to a penalty not exceeding one hundred dollars nor
less than twenty dollars tor each
worfffnnn or person so employed,
ami any workman or person so
workiing for a longer period than
specified in section two of this
act shall be liable to a penalty
not exceeding one hundred dollars
nor less than twenty dollars.
'•■Twenty-tour hour's for the purposes of this act, shall mean from
midiri|«ht to midnight.
"Thi* act shall come into force
on the first dav of March, 1908."
The next bill to be considered was
Williams' bill respecting the payment of wages. The premier had adjourned the debate on i the second
reading and on renewing the same
this afternoon, expressed his hostility to the measure, but announced
the government's intention of introducing legislation to prevent the
withholding of the pay of working
men for'any limine period.
W. R. Ross (Fernie) took an opposite stand to the leader, and declared his intention to support the
bill.
The leader ot the opposition said
he had supported a similar bill last
session and was still of the same
mind, although certain provisions in
the presenfTiill were, in his opinion,
contrary to the public interest. He
would support the second reading ami
hojied the mover ol the bill would
accept amendments in committee that
would make the bill applicable only
in well settled portions of the province.
Hawthornthwaite moved the adjournment of the debate.
Hawthornthwaite's hill to amend
the Workmen's Coupensation Act, the
second reading of which was adjourned several days ago by the attorney general, was resumed. Fulton opposed Ihe proposed amendment
and was supported by the premier
and A, E. McPhitllps. Oliver, Mclnnes and .1. A. Macdonald spoke
strongly in support of the second
reading.        On division the bill was
in to si.
Kimr (Craubrook) asked Ihe chief
commission of lands and works tor
ihe names of the parties who staked
four claims during the years 1808 ami
1809. situated in North Cariboo, nu
tire Peace river, eight miles below the
Findlay Rapids, on Mt. Selwyn,
crown granted in August, 1001, and
to give the exact date of slaking anil
crown granting.
Hon. F. J. Fulton replied as follows:
"J. W Cofleev, located 31th Sep.
tember. 1898 the 'Leland' mineral
claim.
"James Fulton, located Ilih May,
189)1, (he 'Talbot' mineral claim.
"A. F. MacLnchlan. located lith
Mar- 1800, the 'El Capitan' mineral
laini.
"Robert J. Miller, located llth
Mae 1890, the 'Elgin' mineral claim.
These claims have not been crown
granted."
Victoria, March 28.-To-day's proceedings were entirely of a routine
character.
On the report of bill six, to Incorporate the B. C. Veterinary association, McPhlllips secured the insertion
ot tlie following new section:
"The tirRt council shall be composed of the following persons: W. H.
Oaddes, V.S., of Kelowna; R, Hamil-

Alifcrl Cook, a voting mau who hail
been living at the Paclflu hotel ai
Coleman. It appeals Uiat Cook was
agouv Saliirdav morning from the
effects, as a coroner's Jury determined, ol opium poisoning. Tbe facts as
developed by the evidence at the inquest, indicate that death was tin-
lesiili of fitipieiitiug a Chinese hop
joint conducted by one Gooey, at
Coleman. '.'I appears lhat Cook was
addicted to the habit of opium smoking. A few days previous to bis
death bv visited Ihe Gooey place and
smoked live pipes, ouougn, as Dr.
West wood testified, to have ktilled
him, but the day before be succumbed In again visited the joint for a
smoke. Friday night he went to
lied at the 1'acitic uud other roomers
beard him moaning nearly all nighl
but did nothing, presuming his
trouble to he due to drink, His
room mate went to the room about
' o'clock Sal unlay morning and
found him struggling'and moaning. An
.-hoil was made to arouse bim but he
did not respond ami the room mate
went to hod. As Cook continued to
struggle, the room mate got up and
again tried to arouse bim but failed,
Then assistance was summoned. Dr.
West wood, when called, diagnosed
Ihe case as opium poisoning and nd-
niiuistered antidotes but it .wis too
late, death ensued shortly after lb
o'clock Saturday morning The
case was reported lo Coroner Beach
and an inquest was beld at Coleman
Tuesday. The jury found lhat death
was caused by opium poisoning, se
iilministere'l. ll has been learned
that the deceased was 22 years of
ige ami that he has a broth -r ami
other relatives living nl or near S-t.
Paul. The brother was telegraphed
md wired hack stating be would
come. It became necessary to bury
the body, however, without walling
his arrival nml the funeral was held
yesterday. It is stated thnl Ihe
opium den is run openly and that
Coleman has oilier victims of the
smoking habit among the white
population but 1h.it Die police can
;lo nothing to interfere with the
traffic as there is no law against it.
It was not sn intended but the
method the const utile In charge of
police affairs al Coleman found of
dealing with a noisy drunk one day
during the week was a salutary one.
A Colcnianite, who is more or less ot
ii character, but wit lift) a good M-
low.^oi ou a boisterous jag and
became necessary to sequester him.
Iteiu- harmless it was not considered
necessary to put him in a cell so he
was put'in a mom at the barracks to
sleep it off. The body of ihe person
who luui heen found rl'pad in his bed
the day before, had heen placed in
the same room. In due time the
young man with the jag came round
ami getting up, observed what he
presumed to he another sleeper. Walking over he gave him n friendly
shake ami inquired, "Well, old pal.
what are you in for'"' It didn't
take long to discover the man was
dead. Dick didn't require any door
then the window was good enough.
He went through 11 Iw.id first, turned
a somersault and landed on his feet
on the outside and never quit going
until he reached Hlairmore. He was
worse scared than he was at the
time of the slide when be hit only
every sixth tie on the way to Blairmore. Richard declares he has foresworn the cup that inebriates and
lhat it will be a long time before he
throws anv more slugs under his
belt.
The electric light plant, which was
closed down neatly two months owing to a break in the machinery,
started up during the week, It was
good to see tlie bulbs glow once
more.
Hiram Biggs, the well known
frontiersman and one of the oldest
old timers of ihis section, bad a
close call to a fatal injury recently.
Mr. Biggs had beet) packing for the
syndicate that is operating on the
North Fork and one trip into the
mountains, found the snow so deep
that his horses were unable to gel
through. The snow was the cause
of his saddle horse falling with him
more than a hundred feet down a
mountain. Mr. Biggs was so seriously injured internally that had he
reached the hospital here a few hours
later than be did it would have been
too late, As [| was he suffered
greatly but is now coming around all
i Ight.'
The chiiiook thai struck the Puss
Tuesday seems lo be the forerunner
of real spring. The heavy fall ol
snow that had come during previous
days, disappeared in a few hours,
-so quickly in fitet, that people who
were oul sleigh riding and who
stencd with the sleighing as good us
t has been this winter, came home
on bale ground. The present indications are that spring will open unusually early.

telephone lines of that city, which
will also extend to the territory covered hy the Ciauhroob connections:
The Crows Nest Pass Electric
Light A Power company an: preparing to establish telephone service lo
Klkmouth and Hosmer. Such is the
welcome information communicated
this week to .1. S. T. Alexander,
secretary ol the Ferule, board of
trade, iii a letter from G. O. S.
Lindsey, general manager of the
company. It will he remembered
thai the Fernie board of trade took
this subject up some lime ago and
asked the Power company to make
these extensions. Mr, Lindsey replied at the time promising to give
llie mailer his consideration, The
hoard and the people of Feiuie have
reason to be glad Uml the company
looks ai the extension in a favorable
light ami that the work will commence at once.
Mr. Lin-dsey's letter stales that
the work will be commenced at once,
.uul imftiiry at Ibe company's office
elicited the Information that some
of the material lor the extension bad
already been purchased The wires
will be sluing on the Greai Northern
tolograph poles as far as Klko, the
permission having been granted hy
thai company.
Tbe extension of the service to the
Klkmouth district will connect Kcrnie not only, with the people of thai
locality and intervening points, but
it will also connect tbe citv with the
outside world by means of the Cranhrook exchange, which now is connected with Klkmouth, The advantages of such extension in a commercial way can not easily he overestimated. Tbe extension to the
new town of Hosmer, where considerable growth is exited ed this season, will also lie of great convenience to the people nf the two
coal "towns, At Hosmer the mines
ire makinir a good-showing and the
lumber industry is employing a lot
if men. Business bouses are building un amhthe telephone service will
be quite in keeplmr with the general
development.

LA CROSS K TEAM    MAKES TRIP
TO AUSTRALIA.
EASTERN      MEN     MAKE      ARRANGEMENTS WITH PLAYERS OF THE ANTIPODES.
Toronto, March 20.—The trip of the
Canadian lacrosse team to Australia
this summer is now assured, and all
preliminaries are settled. President
Miller, of the (.'. L. A., has received
a cablegram from Australia to that
effect and is making preparations accordingly. Thp team will leave (or
the antipodes on or about June 1,
and will be gone practically all summer.
The make-up of the team, which
has already been outlined has not
yet been settled, hut Mr. Miller is
hard at work on it now. It will,
however, be made almost entirely of
intermediate C. L. A. players,
At least one National Union player is considering the advisability of
taking the trip us a member of the
team, and Mr. Miller is raising no
objection to his professional standing, so that it is to be presumed thu-i
the Australians have no grave objections to professionals on the
team, though it had all along been
understood that they had.
The Australian associajions ate
guaranteeing sufficient to cover all
expenses.

Brandon, Man., March 11).—A severe,
sentence was pronounced on Jesse

convicted on a charge of raping an
eleven year old girl. tn pronouncing sentence .Iffdge Richards said:
"Consideiiug the horrible circumstances I may say I seriously ihoiigtifl
of ordering you to he hanged, and
though I aiu uot doing so, I may tell
you thnl mtinier is not more deserving ol that punishment than the heinous crime with which yon are charged. Unfortunately I can't emphasize
your sentence hy Hogging. Why the
legislature bus not made such provision under this count I can't say, but
I greatly regret I can't order you to
he Hogged three times during thi*
term of vour imprisonment, I order
you to be imprisoned in Manitoba
penitentiary for twenty years."
Everybody
Agrees
that COD LIVE* OIL and WON are
beyond question the greatest medicines known. Then why does not
everybody take Cod Liver Oil and
iron? Simply because most people
cannot take the Oil and few can digest
the Iron in any ordinary form. Thee
difficulties have been entirely removed
by the introduction of FERROL, in
which the Iron is scientifically com.
bined with the Oil. rendering tbe Oil
palatable and the Iron digestible.
While
FERROL
is manufactured from the best quality
of Cod Liver Oil (tbe whole of the Oil)
and is richer in oil (ban any other
emulsion, and while it contains just the
right quantity of tlie best form of Iron
•md I'liotphonis, it is so si icntilu ally
prepared that not one person in a thousand liuils 'my tumid-* ill takiiif* it,
md infants digest it without dilhculty.
Moreover tbe well-established value uf
the Oil and Iron is immensely
enhanced by the process of manufacture, and as the formula is freely exposed it is not to be wondered at that
physicians everywhere have fully
endorsed FERROL ami used it largely
in their practice. FERROL is invaluable for the treatment of any kind of
Lung or Bronchial troubles, while for
wasting diseases it bas no equal, and

Mirth SaNlfffl. Nnthlna further was
aitl al ihe time. Thursday we
tallied it over again and Pnul said
'te would take $700 nnd half of
atlle. I said nil rlgh1 hut wait un-
il we sold cattle, as I wanted to
my all cash. Paul said il was not
necessary. On Thursday afternoon
we were planting beans' and Paul
■vent in the house and cooked sup-
|ier, He called me to supper about
half past six o'clock. Before we
itc be said he had discovered n
'■ache of dynamite and wanted mc to
-,;n and help got it. I started down
ihe trail ahead of him. Paul always carried a revolver. When I
entered some brush where he said the
powder was he shot me. I dropped
face down on the ground and said,
"Ood help me." Paul said iu Italian, "Here is another for you my
uncle, you are dead right here." I
said, "All right, perhaps belter me
ihan some one else." He then placed revolver to my head and fired.
Vfter he had gone I went down to
railroad track and bridge crew took
me to Sirdar and put me in station
and 1 was then taken to the hotel
md Mr. Hope came from Creston
mil bandaged me. I had about
■MOOO saved up that I been saving
several years. Paul had two or three
hundred dollars. This money was iu
;<he house."
After securing this statement,
which was necessary in case tbe
wounds should prove fatal. Chief
Bullock-Webster left for the scene of
the crime Saturday morning. In the
meantime things hud been doing at
lhat point.
Wliile Mr. Mannarino was still at
Sirdar Constable Wilson, had been
lummotied from Creston, and on his
irrival was informed hy the wounded man of the danger in arresting his
nephew, as he was well armed with
plenty of ammunition.
Constable Wilson, accompanied by
three specials, Charles Hull, Charles
Quaiffe and Robert Reid, went up to
the ranch. Hy this time it was
getting late at night but on Wilson's
arrival, which was not attended by
noise, Paul Mannarino was still
awake ami about. Constable Wilson
stole up to the window and looking
in saw Paul Mannarino sitting with
his head in his hands. Instantly
Wilson [Miked his revolver through lb«
window, breaking it in the process,
and shouted to to Manmirino to hold
up his hands. Maunarluo leaped to
his feet and nt once, flung up his
linnds. But in a moment he made a
furl her leap into au inner room, seized his rifle and discharged it point
blank at the constable. Hie bullet
narrowly missing him. Wilson tired
in return but missing his man, leil
hack. Mannarino ran to tto window
and discharged his repeater several
times hut without effect. Wilson
and his men took cover around the
house, shots . being exchanged all
through the night. II anybody rose
to his feet it was the signal for a
bullet and when the morning brought
light the specials lay dose indeed. A
coal hung on a slump was riddled
with bullets.
Early iu the morning P. D, Hope,
I*;. Stewart and Herbert Hitchcock
went up, relieving Robert Held and
shortly In-fore noon ('unstable Young
arrived from Nelson and the seven
men despnsed themselves in a circle
a round the building.
Alton I 3 o'clock in the after noon
lhc younger Manual iuo dlscoveied
that he was short ol ummuuilioii aiidj
about the time, the discovery was
made the besiegers had nun It* up
their minds lo lake an enfilading position and file through the hut in
such a maiuiei that Hie bullets would
traverse the entire length ot Ibe
floor, guessing—which proved to be
Ihe case— tbat the prisoner hud established liis headquarters under the
bed. But Mtinnnritio saw Hie game
was up. His besiegers had stood
their ground all through the night
without.food or shelter amid blinding
snow squalls sweeping down the lake
and be gave up in face of so much
determination, and presently coming
imlslde the hut said he would surrender. Fearing treachery Young
advanced ou the man, bidding Wilson
lo keep him covered and lo fire if he
dropped his bunds. The desperado
was thus secured.
A search of the hut discovered the
money hidden as described by( Mannarino, a ride without ammunition,
two new boxes having been fired
awnv, a revolver with three shells
discharged, and a shot gun. Paul
Manmirino was taken down to Sirdan
and formally charged, being remanded for eight days, and then taken on
to Nelson, where he wns lodged iu
thi! provincial gaol. The prisoner is
a small, dark man, but does not sirein
lo be iu the least dtuiwuted.
