III ANY TIME
BELIEVED OLIVER GOVERNMENT SPIES AN OPENING VKICY SOON
MINISTERS' PROMISES
INDICATE IT'S Dili:
Could Not Possibly Fulfil AU
Pledgor* Being Marie
to People.
All Indloattona are that the Liberal Government at Victoria will make
an early appeal to the electors. Ministers arc cavorting over the province,
and so Is the Premier, and they are
free to make any promises that are
exacted of them — and summing all of
these pladgcs up, it would require
millions of dollars to fulfil them.
It ls known that the Hon, Dr. King,
on his recent visit lo Cranbrook warned "the boys" that they might expect
an announcement of an election date
at any time within the present month,
and to get ready to bucket in. But
"the boys" are not keen on this buck-
Ung-in proposal, for many ot them did
buckle in In 1916, and so many were
the promises of easy berths that were
made then that Cranbrook alone could
have filled every position in the gift of
the government, had they all been fulfilled.
The local Liberals remain lukewarm
with the possible exception of a few,
and ths indication does not make the
Minister of Works feel any too good
over the outlook here. Ho metis with
a chilly reception whenever he comes
this way, and although tlie doctor Is
a "hail-fellow-well-met," like all aspirants for political honors who go
too far with promises before an election, he finds that these things are
reacting somewhat, and ho is anxious
to know If a llnlng-up process cannot
be effected. Some ot the most earnest workers in the ranks of (lie Grits
In the last election are keeping mum
and sawing wood, nr in other words.
" 'tending their own knitting," and as
one ,put it a day or two ago, when
discussing thc minister's visit, "If
they think we'll full for tho sume old
gush, they are sadly mistaken. Never again."
From Victoria comes the word that
Premier Oliver denies thero will bo an
immediate appeal to the people, but
"Honest John" is ndmiitod to he a sly
old codger, and since the promises he
made during the campaign have (alien as flat as the proverbial pancake
everywhere he addressed the people.
the confidence they had in him at one
lime has flitted away, and only a smile
is to tn* observed on the countenances
of his past followers whenever tlie
old-time cognomen "Honest John" Is
applied to him.

TELFER MYSTERY
STILL  REMAINS AN
UNSOLVED TRAGEDY
rhutl Session of Coroner's Jury
Lasl Week — Inconclusive
Verdict Brought In
After a long wait, final action was
tiikeu laM week by the coroner's Jury
empanelled at Pernio In connection
with tbo death of John Toller, whose
body was found floating in the Klk Hlver near Its mouth, early In June, following tho disappearance of Mr. Teller Irom Ids room In the Elk Hotel ot
Klko on lhe night of May 20. The Jury
returned  tho following  verdict:
"We, the jury sitting upon the
nisi of the doatlt of John Telfer, submit tho following verdict:
"That John Telfer came to his
death on or about tho 20th day of
May. lilt-O, nt or In the vicinity of Elko, B.C.. from some unknown cause,
and we, tbo jury, can find no evidence
or cause for suicide.
"From tlto evidence submitted the
origin of the fire, whicli occurred tn
tho room occupied by the late John
Teller in the Elk Hotel on the night
uf May 20, has not been satisfactorily explained."
Much time and effort has been expended in an endeavor to clear up the
mystery which shrouded the death of
John Telfer, but tho verdict reflects
tho failure of all such efforts, ond the
sudden ending of the life of a man
who had been *nown throughout the
whole Pass country for twenty years
is still a mystery, and may remain so
as long as tho waters continue to
surge through the doep canyon
through which the last earthly Journey of the railway roadmaater was ta
ken.
DELEGATES MEET AND
TALK THINGS OVER
McCurdy  Faces A  Hot  Fight
Down In Old Colchester
Riding
(Correspondence)
Ottawa. — Uou-t-iiti nting is Blow
work; that is, It takes a long time to
produce results. Like experience, It
Is a plant of slow growth. Tbe other day a belter understanding meeting was held here under the auspices of the Federaatlon of Fraternal Societies; but in truth little came of it.
A few delegates met in the smoking
room of the Chateau and talked over
matters; but there was not enough of
them to make much of an Impression. Of course something may come
from tlie scattering of the good seed,
for tbe politicians have certainly been
turning up the soil and watering lt
with many expressions of goodwill.
Tlto unfortunate situation wbicn the
•Better Understanding," of tho "Bon-
lOutcnic" movement seeks to remove
cm.not bo gotten rid of in a day U is
a crop grown from a liberal sowing ui
tares, which has come to full fruition.
The trouble must be allowed to die
ont. But as many reaped an advantage from the resulting spirit of discord, so ninny others are equally in-
rested in keeping it alive, li Is surprising how many movements live on
prejudice; a large part of our pontiles
Is made up of it. Eliminate It and
many wbo have gained more or less
political benefit must also go out of
business. So no matter how sincere
tiio Bon Ententers or "Better Under*.
Blending" poopl-i may be, many others will loll Quebec that In reality, the
leopard has not changed his spots, or
the Ethiopian his skin.
Down In Colchester, Hon. P. B. McCurdy is heaving a hot fight- This is
nothing new to him; but be Is having
it all the same. Heing a wealthy man
he will see tbat nothing In organization is lacking to ensure success, just
as be did in 1911. when be defeated
Fielding in Queen's and Shelburne-
The Farmers' candidate Is a successful tiller of the soil with a splendid
overseas record, and in an ordinary
tight might hope for success. But to defeat a cabinet minister in a by-election
is a hard matter. Tbe truth is that neither tho Liberals nor the Conservatives
welcome the presence of the Farmers
ln the mnratime provinces. Thc Liberals do not. remembering the showing
thut they made In the provincial elections, and tbo Conservatives, as one
can well believe, have even stronger
reason for a like feeling. So it looks
like a combination to beat the Farmer.
But elections these days are queer
things.
In St. John, Hon. W R. Wigmore
will have an easy victory, even if he
does not havo an acclamation, which
Js not at all improbable. St. John's politics is Its harbor. This being so, a cabinet minister looks better to it than
au emp'y-haiidcd oppositionist. During
tho Inst eight years tho harbor has cost
the country nt tho rate of a million
and a quarter a year, but the ocean
has a voracious appetite, Throw a
million dollars into the harbor of a political hotbed on the coast, and tihere
|h so llttlo to show for it that one usually wonders where it has gone.
The freight rntes decision was awaited with much eagerness. Tbe West
doubtless Is more ln-erested than any
other part of Cannda, for tlie probab-
abllity Ib that il will curry the heaviest
in\rti of the new charges. Tho West
bus tho long haul, not having the benefit of wr.tei transportation. Tn the
marnllme provinces the water keeps
the rates In chock. tills being largely
true right up to Montreal. .To a lesser extent It Is also true or the country
to the head of the lakes- But between
Fort William and the Rockies there Irs
no sucli check.
Theie aro some who think that the
advance in rates will have such an
effect, on the movement of grain from
Alberta thnt 30,000.000 bushels will
find its way to the -world's markets
via Vancouver and the1 Panama Canal.
This remains to be seen- However, It
does look ns though the long haul will
bo much affected when the rates go
higher. It is had enough to have to
pay heavy charges on outward shipments; hut to have bo pay them on inward shipments Is doubly hard- Insofar an tbo greater part of tho West Is
roncernnd, there Is no escape from thta
so long as commodities are routed aa

Safe Crackers
Tryjtat a Job
Fall to Get Nice Sum lu Snle of
the Crauhrook Meat Market
Tuesdny Night
An attempt at safe-cracking was
mado during Tuesday night by someone ut the business place of the Crunbrook Meat Market, but tho would-be
safe-blowers failed to make good in
their attempt.
Entering by the rear of the store,
making their way through tbo door,
which was fastened by a heavy wire
and bolt, tho sn re f-erne Iters got busy
and broke from the door of the safe
the hinges completely, as well as the
combination.
About |1400 was In the safe, but tlie
robbers failed to remove the door, and
must have been frightened away by
passers by.
Nothing was left that would afford
a clue for the police to work on, and
the robbers may be successful In making their get-away.
The safe was wrecked completely as
far as the ntuges are concerned, and
the combination as well, thla part of
the job looking very much as if un expert at small safe-cracking hud been
on the job.
The .police are of the opinion the
parties who attempted the job ars
young feliows who attempted a similar Jo'j some time a;;o at the King
Lumber Company's plant. They are
certain they have a good clue and expect ere long to have the would-be
robbers under arrest.

Give; because you believe the

CAMPAIGNING KOR THB
AMBULANCE
An intensive campaign will be
launched next week to raise 111
balance of tlie funds necessary
to allow of the purchase of a
motor ambulance for use in
conjunction with the work of
St. Eugene Hospital. It is not
the first time tbat the people of
the district have lieen canvassed for funds in tliis way; nor
as a matter of fact is it likely
to be the last, ut one cannot
pass up their obligations to the
community by grumbling In
that fashion. Public-spirited
citizens do not undertake to
canvass their fellows for money
for tlie love of tlie task, nor yet
from any selfish motive. The
community drive is tlie logical
method to arrive at tlie accom
plishment of community aims
and objects that may safely be
classed as public needs.
Such n claim none can deny
to the St. Eugene Hospital. Its
work is done without any creed
or color line. At the cry of suffering its doors arc opened and
rich and poor alike are ministered to. It is to widen the
scope of its work that tlie call
is being made for the motor am
bulahce. It can be the means
of saving many a life. There
are times when a quick trip to
the hospital can lie the means
of saving a limb or a life. It
has happened frequently in tlie
past, and will occur again in the
future. Many of the people of
this section, where industry is
necessarily carried on In com-
parative isolation, can recall
an occurrence whereby someone
was brought to a premature
grave wlio could have been sav
ed by a hurried call for the am
bulancc and hospital help.
A matter of this kind seems
to bo peculiarly the burden of
the outlying sections, lt iB in
tlie interests of these parts that
the ambulance will get lu Ub
beBt work. But while these
outlying districts will be called
on to do their share, the city of
Oranbrook itself must not seek
to excuse itself with any such
species of reasoning. The hoB-
pital performs for the city folk
the same work as for their rural residents, aud the ambulance may be called upon to run
the same work as for their ru-
disease to and from the city as
out into the country.
The fund has already a good
start, about eleven hundred dollars having been raised some
time ago for tlie cause, leaving
only a matter of some twenty-
five huifUred to be accounted for
in the drive. This is a paltry
sum ln comparison to tlie territory to lie served, but no one
should seek to let themselves
down easy and salve tlieir con-
aclence with the thought of
what they consider their neigh-

Irresponsibility ef I.hIhpi*
One of the bravest Labor leaders
or the duy, Mr. Oeorge Barnes, has
just declared tlmt "tlie worst aspect
of affairs from tlie Ijibor point of
view is iho sheer Irresponsibility and
lack of moral courage on tlie part of
labor spokesmen" Nor is that unhappy affliction confined to Lnhor
spokesmen only. it is the general
fault of politicians. It hus been the
bane nnd ruin of democracies from
the earliest times, It is only men
liko Lincoln who dare resist political pressure which they know to be
evil nml tho temptation to flatter tho
people Iii order to unin their votes.
"Let us have faith," said he, "that
right makes might, und in that faith
let us to the endpdare lo do our duty
as we understand it." Is that the
spirit of modern politics here or elsewhere? Democracy has crushed military autocracy, but in what spirit is
triumphant democracy addressing it
self to the reconstruction of society
or to the world's work? — London

CONCERNING   CANADA
TIIK KIHST DAWSON
When the first gold hunters poured
into Dawson In IM':*) they found what
some one had described as a "frozen
swamp." Bouts were tied u,p ten and
twelve feet deep along the river bunk;
accommodation was very hard to get
for the place had made no provisions
for such an inrush us it was destined
to have. Soon tiie town was u place
of 10,000 people, named after Dr. Geo.
Dawson, the director of Hie Canadian
Geological Survey. It was a eity of
tents, frunic ami log houses. The
sound of the hammer and saw filled
the air until lute into thc night. They
were crude affairs in muny cases for
the men were often utterly unused to
the tusk of building a house. A win
dow frame for six panes, each six In
dies squnre, cost $25.
The Dawson hunk of the early days
was u tent with an unplaned board for
a counter, and for a safe nn old trunk
often filled with bug;; of gold, served
for a time.
It was a strange time. Men made
fortunes and then lost the entire gain
in a few hours in some mad specula
tion, or drinking bout or game of
cards. The miners were like chit
dren from whom all restraint had been
removed. They drank and gambled
without thought of anything else for
the moment.
Living was very costly In thnt little
northern city. Sugar was $75 .per
u suck ut the beginning; flour was $1
per iHiund; caudles sold ut $125 ouch,
while eggs were reported nt $1.5(1 euch
nt ono tlmo. One mun is reported to
havo pi'ld $200 for a crate of fro-
■/.on potatoes, but he did not rue the
bargain- for lie hud not tasted a potato for two yenrs, nud "I tell you,
they tafitfld good" wos his sole comment-
But the miners were satisfied, for
there wus gold In abundance, and everyone dreamed thut however high
tho eost he would be the man who
would make the pile and be the millionaire.

POLICE COMMISSION
THINKS THINGS ARE NOT
ACCORDING TO IIOYLE
His Worship Mayor eOnest, and
Commissioners Shankland and Balmont, were present ut the recent reg,-
ular melting of the commissioners in
tlie city hull, and during tlie session
i report of Chief of Police P. Ad-
,ms on conditions generally throughout the city was discussed at some
length.
Tlie entire commission was of the
opinion that tilings were still "pretty
loose," und a cleanup was ordered,
the chief of police being advised that
one mouth should be sufficient to get
conditions in the right shape.
It is quite evident from the recent
operation!- of the police that those
wlio do not obey the law will find
tlieir road anything but a smooth
one.
The pool room opposite tho CP.R.
depot received a visit 00 Monday
from tho tho police. Patrolman Roberts paying his respects to the proprietor nnd guests und inviting them
to make a call al police headquarters.
When itho patrolman entered tlie
place a perfeet old-time game with
curds  was iu  progress.
When the jiroprctor, a man named
Wolfengran und six of tho players
faced Magistrate I .-cask on tlie charge
of gambling the proprietor was fined
$40 uud each of the six .players $25
each.
A man named Riley was also taken
in tow by tho police charged with
selling liquor to nn Indian. He wus
remanded, that his operations might
bo looked into further.
Two of the gambling fraternity,
well-known to the local officers, who
Iropped into the city from Fernie on
Sunday, were picked up on the street
Sunday evening by Patrolman Roberts and after being introduced to
Magistrate Leask, and rtceiving a fine
of $20 each, were advised that Cranbrook did not desire tholr presence
longer. They moved on Monday in
the direction of Creston on the westbound train.
Others suspected of running little
games uie sluted for u similar dose
if they aro caught.

nitig the light plant. R. C. Kakln,
former alderman, has been appoinaed
superintendent in full charge of the
plant, at n salary of $250 per month.
This figure, it should be mentioned, is
uo more than Mr. Eakin would have
received hud the plant remained in
its orrginul ownership. He will huve
a staff of four men at the power house
aud a lll'th will do the outside work.
Consequent upon the city taking over tiie light plunt tills month, un extra burden of work will be thrown
upon thc ottice of the city clerk, and
in consideration thereof Mr. T- M.
Huberts was given un increase in salary ui> to $200 per month, and his of-
lint assistant, Miss Hyslop, an increase up to $100 per month. These
represent increnuses of $25 and $15
per month respectively- They do uot
tuke effect till the first of next month.
It is probable that in order to partly overcome loss In operation, the discount allowed for prompt payment of
light rules will be lowered from 2(
per cent, to 10 .per cent., without al
tenon the gross rate. Some of the
public buildings, Including he city
hull, the lire hall, and other public
places, might well be placed on a flat
rate, according to a suggestion made
by Ihe superintendent.
A preliminary draft of an agreement which the city proposes to enter Into with tho II. ('. und Alberta
Power Co., was ordered passed on to
Mr. J. C- Donald, goneral manager of
tho company, ut Fernk.
The city council gave Its approval
to tho proposal of tho school board
to extend the wnter system so us to
allow of a connection being made for
the south ward school. The water
committee will attend to the matter.
An application for a new pool room
license, to bo known as the "Arcade,"
was not grunted by the council.
The usual monthly budget of ac-
accounts as approved by the finance
committee, were also .passed hy ttie
council during their session.
A snd drowning fatality recently
occurred nt Caithness, near Elko, a
six your old boy. Earl Patrick Malon-
ey, son of Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Moloney, wus drowned while in bathing in
the pond of the lumber company at
that place.
Along with his brother und a number of other boys of about the same
age, was in the habit of going in to
bathe below the dam, where the water was shallow. On this occasion,
however, they were playing In tlie water around the edge of the pond, and
young Ear! got beyond his depth. Although the water is only three feet
deei> at the place wliere the body was
recovered, there were ne older .persons at hand to give assistance, and
lifo was extinct when the little body
wus recovered half an hour later-
Tiie remains were taken to Loth-

Freight increases are inevitable, but
for the West there Is only one .policy,
and that is, fight them hard. For they
moan a great deal more to the consumer than the mere inc. ease tn railway
charges, For the new scale is tbo basis on which all other dealers in guodd
base their charges and profits. A forty per cent. Increase in rates will, It is
expected, yield the railways $120,000,-
000; but it will pretty well agreed that
ihe ultimate cost to the consumer will
be $205,000,000. Ill other words, the
public would In seven years pay us
much as lho total cost of thu war to
Canucln. Viewed trom this angle, the
subject, BorloUB enough before, takes
mi a much more serious aspect.
This Ih im lime to go borrowing
I rouble. But it is ijiilte probable Unit
the disposal of ^ v/limit, crop may
create quite a problem, since the out-
lirctink of war to sell thu crop has beun
easy; i'or In addition to tiurope needing wheat it could get it even it it hud
nut, tlitftiiiuncy to get. it with, the Government having granted credits so that
It was bought on time. This was
made possible through the funds provided by tho war loans. A number of
European countries still want our
wheal.; but Canada hsa abandoned ber
credit granting policy. So good au authority ns Lord Beaverbrook ls ot the
opinion that a serious problem has arisen, and he should know something
nbout the situation. Kngland will
ake ti certain amount of wheat, but even her purchasing power is impaired
through the rate of exchange. Ab for
the otlier countries ot Europe, tbe majority of them are infinitely worse off.
Besides there will bo a tendency on
their part to hold off buying, in the
iiope of a stun;p in prices.
Speaking of prices, the public is getting an idea of the munner in which
they have been victimized in recent
years. What tho speculator has done
to the consumer is sad to contemplate.
Take sugar. It should not have cost
tiie consumer anything like what it
lias; but the speculator, seeing his
opportunity, stepped in, got bold of a
large portion of the supplies, then sat
buck and collected his toll- It Is no
secret that a portion of the sugar that
has been sold as high as 24 cents a
pound was bought at prices ranging
round seven cents u pound. A few
of the refiners stocked up for twelve
moinths at this price. Some wonder
what, has bought down tbe price of
sugar. Merely this: tbe speculators
in tbo United States have had to let
go, the banks which lent them the money having called their loans. The
result Is that thousands of tons of sugar have beta thrown o:i the market
It may also be said that tlte press aud
the public have been taken In by propaganda conducted by sugar brokers
and others. Plausible stories, apparently backed up by facts and tigures
showing scarcity, have been readily
swallowed, with the result that the
publfh, fearing that tlie alleged shortage might become even worse, was Induced to buy heavily even at high prices. The purchasing public needs a
Board of Commerce all right, but oue

There will be quite an array of talent al the opening session of the Tariff Commission at Winnipeg on tbe

Doing Great Harm

Severe Strictures on Use
Of the Toy
Among the addrosse which attracted most interest from the public at
the recent convention of the Canadian Medical Association held in Vancouver was tha tdelivered by Dr. Wm.
House, the brilliant American alienist, on the danger of occultism. He
passed sevcro strictures on the credulity of those using the ouija board,
which lias become somewhat of .-
fad again. He attributed tho present rage for the occult to the late
World  War.
"For several yours, he suid, "man

His emotions and passions huve been
iilayed upon by mighty destructive
forces sot free by the Madman of
Europe. Hatred, fear, anger, jealousy, grief, love, courage, devotion,
heroism, consecutively or altenat-
tively, have been roused beyond the

supreme being and belief in a future
life. Others, unftble to' endure the
loss of loved ones and the delay in
meeting them in the hereafter, have
envolved or found means which seem
to thm sufficient. Metaphysics, occultism, mysticism, telepathy, clairvoyance, mind-reading, crystal-gazing, furtune telling, miracle healing,
all flourish.
The ouija board, after a third of
a century of relegation to the attic,
has returned to the living room a
monument to tlie longing und grief,
credulity and stupldness of mankind.

MISS THERESA 8EIGEL,
ELOCUTIONIST, HERE
ON SEPTEMBER 24th
Will Present "The Sign ol' the
Cross," a Stirring Play of
the Early t'hristiuns
An exceptional treat is in store for
I'rauhrook people on Friday, September 24th, when Miss Theresa Seigel,
the famous elocutionist, will pay another visit io lhe city. Those who had
ihe privilege of hearing Miss Seigel
some few mouths ago will doubtless
be anxious lo hear again this talented

repertoire, and from this has been
chosen "The1 Sign of tlie Cross," by
Wilson  Barrett.
Few plays treated a greater sensation In England and America for some
years, or attracted such crowds as
did this famous play, "The Sign of
tho Cross."
The play centres around lhe days of
tiie Emperor Nero, und gives a most
vivid Insight into the doings of that
cruel monarch. Miss Seigel's rendition of tlie play is wonderful. A
Chautauqua lecturer some little time
ago stated lliat during his many years
experience as a Chautauqua man, he
iiad hoard nothing to surpass Miss
Seigel's rendering of 'The Sign of tht
Cross.''
Miss Seigel is visiting Cranbrook
under the auspices of the Methodist
Ladies' Aid, and tho recital will be
given in the Methodist Church. Musical selections will bo given, and a
line program is tmsured.

FAREWELL GIVEN
TO MISS I*. M. SMITH
ON LEAVING FOR SOUTH
.Mado Recipient of Presentation
at Open Meeting of Baptist
Mission Circle
An open meeting of the Baptist Women's Mission Circle wus held on Monday night at the Church, and was
made the occasion of a farewell entertainment in honor of Miss L., M-
Smith, wlio has heen an active worker In the Circle for many yenrs, and
wlio left on Weilnesduy for Los Angeles.
The meeting opened with the hymn,
"Blest Be* the TIo That Binds," and after Scripture rending by Mrs. A. Bridges and prayer by Mrs. Shields, a program was given that consisted of recitations by Misses Honeymun, Alexander, Bessie Woodman and Doris
Haynes, humorous readings by Mesdames Woodman and Constant ine,
solos by Misses Honeyman and Wil-
helmina Woodman and Mrs. Hansell,
and an organ solo by Miss Smith.
An address was then read and a
purse presented to Miss Smith from
the church and her Sunday School
class. Miss Smith, although quite
taken by surprise, responded in an
excellent speech.
After the singing ot "God Be With
You Till We Meet Again," Mrs. Honeyman closed the meeting with prayer.
Miss Smith left for Los Angeles In
company with Mrs. Hansell, where it
is understood she intends taking some
training to lit her for further service
along the lines of Christian work.
Her exceptional musical talent has
been expended very freely in the
work of the church, and she leaves In
this direction also a place that will
be hard to till.
On account of inclement weather the
Anglican Sunday School picnic program had to undergo some change last
Saturday afternoon, It being too wet to
permit use being made of the Baker
grounds. The children were given a
social time In the Parish Hall instead,
and passed thc afternoon very happily.
