boomerang little to the taste uf
either the Borden administration or
Ihe Itohlin government of the province, both of which worked hand    In

And this wus nol an Isolated case.
There were a number more, nml
piol-abh others unreported, where
men were arrested with no crime
but tlmt oi working against the Hor
iimler Morrison, the Conservative,
candidate. There is scurcely any
doubt ihat the election will be protested, nud that when it comes he-
lore the courts there will lie such a
Hood of testimony as to the manner
in which the campaign was fought
as will not merely upset the election,
but reveal the Hobliu and Horden administration in u decided!v odious
Not merely this, but the very
weight of the majority rolled up tor
Morrison hy all sorts of devious
methods has proven embarrassing to
the Horden government. The manufacturers, and everybody who has an
axe to grind in the way of increased
protection on resisting any reduction
in the tariff, have used the result in
MacDonald as an argument with
which to try to club the government
into granting all sorts of tariff favors. . They declare that the contest
was fought purely on the tariff question—the wider markets policy of
tlie Liberals against the restrictive
high tariff ideas of the Conservatives,
and ever since thc result has been,
announced their representatives have
been active looking for further favors at the expense of the producers
and consumers. In its anxiety to
cinch the election the government
o'erleapt the mark, and put a rod in
pickle for its own back.
There was some slight Idea
throughout the country that extreme
methods were being adopted to secure the defeat of the independent
candidate when It became known
that a number of his workers were
being arrested and held on various
quibbles without bail until after the
elect ion. The method was so drastic, and tbe excuses for holding the
men seemed so disproportionate to
tbeir deprlval of liberty that people
wondered what was going on.
Then the facts started to leak out,
and It became known that the Hor-
den-Roblin combination had a big
force of all sorts of "detectives" and
special constables of all degrees of
rascality shadowing tbe Richardson
workers, and, under various flimsy
pretexts arresting such of them as
seemed to be doing the most effective
work. In fact Col. Oustave Hoyer,
M.P., a French speaker from Montreal, stated that he had been constantly shadowed by detectives
throughout and had narrowh escaped arrest himself, lie declared that
the Koblin methods had reduced the
country to a state of anarchy, and
that to his knowledge .1 certain jus
tice of the peace tilled out a ntim
ber ot warrants in blank, so that
the name of any acl ive Richardson
worker could Ite inserted and an ar
rest made. In fact Mr Mover slat
etl that one ol these blank warrants had been tilled in with his own
name, but not executed.
A case in point, a fair sample n|
many similar ones, was the arrest of
young W'alkiiishaw. llr was a

'This sluggishness of public sentiment and the party madness which
makes men morally color blind in
political matters have made possible
the steady degradation of our political methods in this province until
they have reached a pass which is
unspeakable. Manitoba is no longer
a country in which there is a free
natural expression or public
opinion; and to the extent that it is
restricted by arbitrary methods, by
perversions of the law and by corrupting agencies this province has
ceased to be a free democracy."
Hut at last the Roblin-ltordcn combination has overstepped thc mark.

Another sample of tbe Conservative government's facility lor trying
to withdraw from uncomfortable positions it has created for itself was
shown this week in the final st.iee ol
the famous western lumber duties
case. Finding that no matter how
this went it would come to hurt,
either from the manufacturer! or the
consumers of the lumber, the government threw -up its hands
dropped out of the test case it
started, leaving the American
Canadian lumbermen to Aghl 1'

It was just about 10 p in when
Sir Richard Mcltride entered the dining room and took his seat, to tbe

quickly poured in and the long tables

largely due to the bountiful Indulgence of the people of liritisli Columbia. He had endeavored to do what

Mr. It. F. Oreen appreciated the
opportunity given him of saying a
few words on this occasion to his
constituents in Cranbrook. lie was
delighted that tlte gal tiering was   of
non-political character. Craubrook
was tonight, he said, only repeating
its well known record of splendid
hospitality. Cranbrook always did
things up in first-class style.
At this juncture, Mr. O. F. Stevenson favored with a song, and then an
Mr. R. I. T. Oalbralth next, in a
few well chosen words, proposed the
toast of "Our Dominion," coupled
with tbe name of R. F. Oreen, MP,
for Kootenay. Mr. Oalbralth spoke
uf tbe new member for Kootenuy in
terms of the strongest praise. Among
other attributes of Mr. Oreen were
the (act that he never goes back ou a
friend and that he is very careful not
to make promises lie cannot carry!
In response, Mr. Oreen remarked
that he was a modest man and could
say nothing in reply to Mr. Oal-
braith's eulogies. A brief reference
to the aliened success of protection
followed, Sir John A Macdonald
being credited with having made
Canada prosperous, and in Mr.
Oreen's opinion Canada should continue to adhere lo this policy of
protection. The present prosperity

Part of S. J. Schofield's Report of His
Reconnaissance in East Kootenay
The principal ore-bearing formation
in East Kootenay is the oldest mc-m <
ber of Hie Purcell series, called the
Kitchener formation in previous re
ports of blast Kootenay. The principal ore bearing horizon is the upper
part of this formation where tbe
heavy-bedded quart zitcs occur in
greater abundance. At this horizon
are the Sullivan, North Star, Stem
winder, St. liugene, Aurora, and
Society (iirl mines Tliere are two
areas in the region examined which
are of special importance, tlte Moyie
ami Kimbcrley districts.
The Moyie area embraces the reg
ion around Lower Moyie lake. It is
underlain by the Purcell series, which
is here folded into a northerly-plutig
ing anticline, whose axial part is
made up of the oldest member of the
Purcell series, while the radial parts
consist of the grey-weathering argil
laceoiis quartzites which lie conformably   on  the     older   formation.
There are two main fissures on
both tbe east ami west side of Lower Moyle lake, and it is probable
that they occur underneath thy
lake. The walls bounding the main
fissures show verv little evidence ol
relative displacement, the greatest
movement observed being IH inches,
although iu such a homogeneous series of quartettes the detection of
such movement might lie difficult. In
general, the pay shoots are associated with the massive, purer quart
Kites which are less aluminous and
more capable ol forming an open

the zinc resources of British t'olumbia, the tollowing assay of Ihe ore
is quoted:   gold,    0*02 ounce, silver,
7.'t ounce; lead, 21.5 per cent; zinc,
■X'.\ per cent. The ore, represented
in the Aurora is also considered by
tbe same commission to he the simplest to treat of any of the ores examined in their series of experiments.
Development on the property consists of about 1,500 feet of workings,
mostly in the form of tunnels, Oper
at ions on this property are .suspended, for at present there is no
demand for zinc ore in British Columbia.
(As a matter of fact some work is
now* being done on this property under the supervision of'Mr. H. Dim-
This group, consisting of the (Juin
don, Kereole, Alice, and St. Joseph
fractions, is located iu the territory
adjoining the Aurora group to tbe
north. The vein on which these
claims are located is about'700 feet
north of the Aurora vein and has an
east and west strike with a dip ofi
tm degrees to the south. The formation whicli the vein traverses Is the
rddest subdivision of the Purcell series, which here strikes northeast and
dips 20 degrees to the south. The
vein is from four to live feet wide,
and in one tunnel the ore was IK
inches in width and consisted of
galena, zinc blende, and some pyrite.
Development work consisted of a tew-
short tunnels.
The Cambrian and Mabelle crown-
granted claims, operated by the
Cambrian Mining Company, Limited,
of Moyie, B, C , embrace the territory between the St. Kugene Consolidated and the Aurora, anil thus
lie for the most part under the
waters of Lower Moyle lake. Tlie
extensive zone o| lissuring described
in the general statement, and which
occurs on both sides of the lake, is
to he expected to occur In the intervening territory, and as the veins are
mineralized in (lie St. Kugene Consolidated and in the Aurora, it is
logial to expect that the Cambrian
und Mabelle claims will also be productive. The sounding of the lake
on the Cambrian ami Mabelle claims
revealed the maximum depth of water to he 110 feet, nnd in addition 90
feet of blue clay and hard-pan covers
the bottom of the lake. This last
.nformntton was supplied by Chas.
A. MacKay, of Moyle, R. C, one of
the directors of the company.
The claims operated by this company comprise an area of 520 acres,
situated on the east side of Lower
Moyie lake. The property contains two veins, having a general
strike east and west with a dip or
70 degrees lo the south. The two
veins are tiwi feel apart on the
1,000 foot level, which is 1,000 leet
above the level ot the lake. They np-
parrntly converge downwards and   to
the west. Connecting the two
main veins, at variable distances
apart, is a series of important cross-
veins, which meet the main veins, in
general, at a small angle. Locally
these cross-fissures are termed
avenues." The ore bodies are
mainly confined to the fractured and
folded area between the main veins,
and in places large ore-chutes occur
Where the avenues meet the main
veins,,or close to this junction. Very
little displacement was noticed along
the main llssures, although slight
folding or bending of the strata occurs in close proximity to these
fissures. The country rocks consist
of argillaceous quartzites, and purer
hcavy-behded quartzites of the pre-
Cronton, tbe oldest subdivision of
the Purcell series, which here form
the axis and eastern limb of the
anticline described above. The ore-
bodies are associated with the massive purer quartzites of the above
formation. The ore consists of galena, both tine and coarse-grained, associated in places with zinc blende.
Tlte gangue, which is smalt In
amount, consists of garnet, antho-
phyllite (a variety of amphlbole) and
a little quartz, the latter mineral lieing very prominent where the vein
pinches in the argillaceous quartzites. Locally the wall-rock in tbe
immediate vicinity ot the ore-bodies
shows strong metamorpism In the
development of garnet and
This group comprises seven crown-
granted claims operated by the Society Oirl Mining Company, Limited.
They are situated about two miles
east of Moyie at an elevation of
about 5,000 feet, and adjoin the
eastern boundary ot the St. Eugene
Consolidated. The formation, in
which the deposit occurs, is the oldest known subdivision of the I'urcell
series, which here strikes north and
south with a dip ol 25 degrees to
the east and forms the eastern limb
of tbe anticline described above.
The vein, where examined, strikes
V 60 degrees W. with a dip of 00
degrees to the south, and appears to
be in the great zone ot lissuring
which traverses the Moyie area. The
vein is narrow where it traverses the
thin-bedded argillaceous quartzites
and widens out fn the heavier-bedded
The upper workings expose an oxidized ore-body consisting of cerussite
and pyromorphite, both massive and
in beautiful crystals. The pyromorphite is a yellowish green in color
and has been described both crystal-
lographically and chemically by
Bowles. He gives the composition
as l»b Cl (PO),
The cerussite is white to colorless
and occurs in tabular orthorbotnbic
crystals either singly or as penetration twins. Massive cerussite Is also present. Tlie cerussite Is often
embedded in deep masses ot llmonite.
The orldized ore-zone is a rare occurrence in Kast Kootenay. The un-
oxidized or primary ore. consisting
of galena and zinc blende with little
or no gangue, Is exposed in the
lower tunnel which penetrates the*
ore-body 25« feet below tbe surface.
At present the ore is hand-sorted and
then sent to the smelter at Trail tor
treatment. For the year WII up
to the end ot September, the total
output ot the mine amounted to
about 100 tons. The galena carries I ounce of silver to I per cent
lead, while the oxidized ores carry
1 ounce silver to 5J per cent ot lead.
The area is situated near Klmber-
ley, the terminus ol the Canadian
Pacific Railway branch line from
Cranhrook to Kimberle], and Includes the Sullivan, Stemwindcr, North
Star, and several minor properties.
It Is underlain by a aeries of argil
leceous quartzites and purer heavy-
bedded quartzites, which are identical in llthological and physical characters with those described In the
Moyie district, and hence belong to
the lowest known subdivision of the
Purcell series. About one-half mile
above Kimberlev, on Mark creek, a
lew dlnrite sills are exposed in the
valley walls.
This group was discovered In IBM,
and is located on Sullivan hill about
two and a halt miles by road north
ol Kimberle*,, at an elevation ot
about 4,000 teet above sea-level, 'ihe

opportunities for settlers. There is
an immense section of land there,
thc valley running from ten to twenty miles wide for a distance ot H5
miles, and it can he purchased for
less than $50 per acre, whereas most
of tile good fruit lands sell as high'
as t.'IIIO per acre."
The above statement was made to
a representative of "The News-Ad
vertiser" by Mr. W. V. Ourd, president of the Cranhrook board ol trade,
who was a guesl at the Hotel Vancouver.
The Kootenay valley," he continued, "is now coming into prominence
as au agricultural district. There is

altitude as some of the best fruit

While irrigation is not necessary,
even the baldest hills producing line

been made in that direction.

Songs ami smokes helped to make

emphasis was laid upon the value of
the Sunday School as the evangel is
tic educational function ut the
church. Statistics presented by
these men revealed the welcome fact
that eighty-seven per cent of all the
members in the Protestant churches
came in through the medium of the
school. Another feature, one of
sadness to contemplate, was the
ureal leakage in the school, there he-
ing no less than seventy-five ner cent
I the entire enrollment ultimately
lost to the school and the church.
The remedy suggested was tlie graded school, trained teachers, conversion as thc definite object of teaching, and the adult class. The mass
meeting following the evening services was a season of pleasure to all
interested in Christian work. The
sterenptici.il was used to display the
rapid progress of the adult move
ment in the Sunday school. There
are at present enrolled in tlie schools
of America alone three millions of
men, anil the transformation of sentiment is lieing rapidly achieved
when the average church member will
recognize the school, not as a nursery for children, hut ns a college,
attended, supported by the rank and
file of the church and congregation.
The adults of the church will soon
concede that this is the greatest
evangelizing agency in Christendom.

by the Allen Mayers belore a large
crowd ol enthusiastic listeners. This
is tlie lirst time this production has
been seen In tbis city and thc ever
popular players received vigorous
and repeated applause. The story
ol the play is written about a woman suffrage campaign over a con-
sest lor tbe mayoralty between a
man and bis wile. Very good com
edy abounds throughout the production and the situations are ludicrous
and mirth-provoking.
Miss Felton In the title role and
as the woman's candidate, played In
her usual eftecllre style and was
ably supported by (I. D. Zucco, as
her husband, and the opposing candidate, .Mrs. IV II. Allen, as Uncle

Is Smoking a Vice or a
(Continued from page three)
The cause ol this doctor's disquieting discovery was the continuous hreathlessness of one of his patients. This man, robust and healthy in every otlier way, had for
years suftered from gradually increasing shortness of breath, made
worse on the slightest exertion.
When every other possible cause for
this complaint had been looked to iu
vain, his pipe, a very dark colored
briar which had heen his habitual
smoke for the last decade, was suspected. Ile gave up his pipe, and
iu a few weeks all the symptoms nf
hreathlessness passed off, and he - regained his normal health.
It would have been bad enough for
the disciple of the pipe if tlie story
hud ended there, but it seems that
the doctor had another cherished il
lusion to shatter. He tells us that,
although the patient "felt bound to
give up his pipe, he consoled his
tobacco hunger with a dozen Turkish
cigarettes daily, which did not appear to do him any harm"!
Another time honored argument, of
the anti-cigarette crank is that the
impurities of the paper of the cheap
cigarettes the masses smoke are as
harmful as the tobacco itself. Professor Dixon Mann, after extensive
analyses of all kinds of cigarette papers, from the monogramed papier-deluxe down to the tlve-a-penny variety, found the same Ingredients In
all, and apparently none of them
particularly harmful!
Sometimes the confirmed smoker
soothes his conscience hy assuring
himself that the drain on his heulth
cannot he great, as he smokes only
mild tobacco.
Unfortunately, the smoker's taste
Is no real criterion of the mildness
or otherwise (that is, from the nico-'
tine percentage) of his favorite
brand. For example, the third cigar
in the list above shows the highest
nicotine percentage of the lot, yet
not only was it labelled "mild" by
the tobacconist, but it was also judged to have a distinctly, mild flavor
hy an experienced smoker, who conscientiously consumed one nl\ the
brand in the Interests of science.
Coming down to hard facts, what

to absolutely correct in condemning
smoking by young people. There
seems to be some peculiar quality
about nicotine which is actively detrimental to the full and natural development of our bodies. A very instructive series of measurements
proving this were carried out a few
vears ago on some 150 students of
Yale Lniversity, half of whom were
habitual smokers and the other half
non-smokers. The subjects chosen, it
should lie noted, were of un age when
the final stages ol the change between the growing period and adult
life were being completed.
Weight.—Non-users gained 10.4 per
rent more than habitual users.
Height.—Non-users gained 21 per
'-eut more than habitual users.
Chest growth.—Non-users gained
36.7 per cent more than habitual users.
Lung capacity.—Non-users gained
77.5 per cent more than habitual
It seems, then, that tlie common
warning that tobacco smoking stunts
the growth fs really worth the careful consideration of youthful would-be
Apart (rom the minor symptoms
caused hy smoking too much (all of
which immediately pass of! after a
few days' swear-off), there are two
really important conditions .directly
attributable to long-continued overindulgence in tobacco. These are
"tobacco heart" and "tobacco eye."
The first sympton of tobacco heart is
palpitation. The smoker notes that
his heart occasionally beats very
strongly and slowly three or four
times, and then breaks into a feeble
fluttering gallop lasting for halt a
minute or so. These symptoms may
return two or three times a day. Besides the heart upset, he may also
have occasional attacks of slight giddiness and fainttiess
As a matter of fact, tobacco heart
is almost unknown in a healthy individual who simply smoked more
than he ought. t sttully there Is
some additional cause, such aa alcoholism, excessive tea or coffee
drinking, a rundown condition of the
nerves, or anaemia, which, at any
rate, helps to usher in tbe heart
trouble. Tobacco heart, except in
old people who for many years have
been excessive smokers, alwaya passes off when the cause is given up. -Nor
have any heart abnormalities been
found after death in heavy smokers
which could be laid down to the action of tobacco.
A curious sign that often warns,
people that they are smoking too
much fs a peculiar upset ot the heart
rhythm, noted immediately on waking in tlte morning. Ordinarily, of
course, there are two sounds to each
heartbeat, the classic lun-dup, lub-
ilub one hears on placing one's ear
against a person's chest. When too
much tobaacco has been consumed In
/, ■       - - ■ -   !-'■- '■•-     '■'•
the previous twenty-four hours, the
mere exertion of rising to a sitting
position after the night's rest so
startles the slightly drugged heart
that, instead of giving out tbe ordinary normal double sound, the subject
himself can often hear or feel three
distinct portions to the heat, showing that the two sides of the heart
ure not acting iu perfect time.
Tobacco eye is a much more dangerous condition, in that once it has
begun to develop it may go on to
absolute atrophy of the optic nerve,
resulting in total blindness. Luckily,
tobacco-blindness cannot be very
common, for it was first described
only fifty years ago. The lirst symptom, as a rule, is a difficulty in telling the difference between similar
colors. The smoker finds .that he
makes mistakes with coins, contuses
sixpences witli half-sovereigns, because the comparatively slight -difference iu the color ot gold and silver
iu certain lights is too small to he
accurately noted on his somewhat
nicotine-drugged retina. Increasing
nervousness, sleeplessness, and dyspepsia, are other symptoms usually
present even in the lirst stages of
The nnly wuy to prevent, or at
least, retard the progress of the
disease, is to give up tobacco entirely, once and for all.
Despite thc widely differing sensations smokers say they derive from
the pleusant weed, careful scientific
observations show that the inhalation of tobacco smoke always has
the same distinct effect on the circulatory system. A moderate rise
in thc blood pressure in the arteries
always takes place during the act of
smoking, giving place to a distinct
fall below the normal a few minutes
after smoking has ceased.
Theoretically the constant changing of the blood pressure ought to
lead up to degeneration ot the coats
of the arteries (atheroma), or even
kidney or heart disease. In fact, extensive arterial changes have been
experimentally produced in rabbits by
feeding them for long periods un
very minute doses ot nicotine. In the
human smoker, however, no such,
changes have ever been shown to be
due to indulgence in tobacco.
However one may decide on the
general effect of moderate smoking
by healthy adults, tobacco Is, -*ftver-
Uieless, an active poison to certain
people. Sir Thomas Clifford All-
butt, in his System ot Medicine, tells
of a patient who was not able to
■veu sit in a room full of men smoking without suffering from very distinct and uncomfortable heart symptoms on the following day. This patient was no hysterical neurasthenic,
but a strong nnd vigorous man. to
all intents and purposes perfectly
healthy. However, his heart would
heat intermittently and unsteadily
ror hours as the result of the minute
•loses ot nicotine poison absorbed
through his lungs from a smoky atmosphere.
In addition to tbe more usual dryness of the mouth, indigestion, nervousness, insomnia, eye trouble and
heart disarrangements not unfre-
quently attributed to tobacco smoking, acute neuralgia is another very
unpleasant complaint that the doctors sometimes trace back to nicotine poisoning.
One of the sheet-anchor arguments
ot the anti-tobacco crank, that smoh-
lcteristic shrug ot the shoulders—
"Mr. Horden wants to have a voice
in the issues of war and peace."
ing leads to cancer ot the tongue, has
recently received partial _ support
from no less an authority than Sir
Henry Hutlin, the president of the
Itoyal College of Surgeons. Addressing the International Dental Federation, Sir Henry first qualified his
remarks by stating that very olten
the healthiest mouths were found in
people who smoke from morning to
night. On the other hand, be had seen
numerous cases of cancer of tbe tongue - which had started from the tiny
patch of whitish indurated tissue one
often finds on the tongues, of smolsers
at the point where the smoke directly impinges. It was a question,
Sir Henry concluded, of the susceptibility of the individual. Cancer seldom occurs on a tongue that has
not shown for months or weeks previous to its onset one or more of
these whitish indurated patches.
Here is one bit nt sound reasoning,
then: If the tongue becomes soft and
feels hard in any one spot, give up
smoking at once, for there is strong
evidence that these hard spots
brought on by smoking do frequently
develop into true cancer.
Tliere is absolutely no scientific
proof tor the assertion put forward
by anti-tobacco crusaders, that excessive drinking is in any way led up
to by smoking. Statistics ot inebriate asylums, etc., ot course show
that a huge percentage of their inmates, both men and women, are
smokers. It stands to reason, however, that anyone weak-minded
enough to let the temporarily pleasing (?) effects ot over-indulgence in
alcohol ruin his life naturally will
not refrain from the real pleasures of
tobacco smoking.
Whatever may be its final physical
effect, tobacco is undoubtedly a wonderful brain stimulant for certain
people whose intellects need arresting and concentrating before tbey can
sit down and work. In the same
way the feeling of deep content and
satisfaction which steals over one on
lighting up a comfortable after-dinner
pipe or cigar after a hard day's work,
and worry, la   one nf tht rent satls-

factions of this life.
That the constant smoker Is less
open to coughs and colds thnn his
more abstemious brother, on account of thc disinfecting action
smoke hus on the mouth tissues, has
often been usserted. Lately, moreover, experiments have been curried
out by passing tobacco smoke
through ii series of --.lass bells c'oated
on the inside with germ impregnated
gelatine, whicli prove thut there is
really a sound foundation for this belief. In tliese experiments the germs
ot Asiatic cholera and pneumonia—
the latter of which ure constantly
present in the mouths of city dwellers—were killed hy the smoke in
from ten to thirty minutes. Even bej
fore the germ theory of disease was
firmly established the efficacy ot tobacco smoke in warding off disease
was well recognized. Hall n century
ago, when yellow fever was a constant visitor in the Southern States
of America, no hospital physician or
attendant would ever have dreamt of
passing through the wards without
the protection of a lighted pipe or
cigarette between his lips.
To smoke or not to smoke, then,
seems to he a question one must decide for onesself. As tar as healthy
adults are concerned, the only physician who can accurately state whether tobacco will do harm or not is
one's own personal experience.
In a very tew exceptional cases tobacco undoubtedly is a very virulent
poison. These unfortunates will not
need to be told the advisability of
avoiding self-poisoning.'
To perhaps two or three per cent
of ordinarily healthy adults, even
moderate smoking leads to hints of
indigestion, nerves or insomnia. The
.nervous type of man or woman,
which supplies the bulk of this class
of nicotine-susceptihles, is. however,
the very class which, as a rule, finds
a smoke soothing to upset nerves, an
enemy to "blue devils" and a powerful wooer of sleep. Here again experience, bitter or otherwise, must
be one's guide.
For tne rest ot us, the great hulk
ot grown-up humanity, tobacco, in
what each individual has proved is
"moderation" tor himself or herself,
is a nerve-soother, a smoother of
ruffled spirits, a gentle aid to digestion, and a reliable companion in
times of stress and worry which no
dogmatic edicts, either ot cranks or
of scientists, will persuade us to
give up lightly.

"Lord Strathcona's career bas
been! so conspicuous and noteworthy
that it should be brought In Its
entirety to the knowledge ol the public. 1 do not think there is any
other civilian alive who has been
able to do so much practioal good to
the empire belore Oiling an official
position. His lite should nerve
every young man to eltort, to work
In honesty and hope, and tu leel that
he also may become a power altectlng
' tor good the destinies ot peoples."
These ure tin words ol the Duke ol
Argyll, and the praise Is not overdone, lor l.nril Strathcona's life Is an
example ol untiring industry und
constant courage meeting with its
due reward.
Tbe man whu hus deservedly hud
so many honors showered on him,
and who, though never been alter
money, has yet acquired an Immense
lortune, was not ol the humble origin which some historians have chosen lor him. He has been described
as beginning life as a herd laddie or
a shop boy. As a matter ol fact,
his parents were in comfortable circumstances. They lived at Forres,
at Elgin, where the luture builder ol
Canada was born on August Oth,
The boy—Donald Smith—had a
good education, aad was intended Ior
the law. But when he was eighteen
years ol age he received an oiler
througb his uncle, .lohn Stewart,
who had gone to Canada and become
a noted lur trader, ol a clerkship in
the great Hudson Bay company.
This was the boy's opportunity,
and he took it with a certain grasp,
ln the year that Queen Victoria was
crowned he lelt his native lead, and,
alter a voyage ol between forty and
filty days, the young adventurer
landed in tbe country which was to
give him tame and lortune lar beyond*,
even the dreams ot youth.
It waa a hard life to which he
went. For many yeara it was something like a succession ol Arctic explorations. As a trader youag
Smith tramped the wastes ol the
north trom end to end, bargaining
aad bartering. For month nn
month he travelled the ice desert
where the great Mackenzie river
tumbles across the Arctic circle. Always oa foot, accompanied only, by a
lew Indians, he travelled tbe dreary
distances, the hundreds ol mile*
which separate the poets ol tbe company. ,    •
For ten years he did this Only
one young in heart and tough in fibre
could stand sum a llle. Yet hr is
able to look back upon It with a certain amount ol gratitude. "A man
who bas been Iroren and roasted bv
turns every year," he once said,
"must be tbe tougher lor it II be
survives II all."
Very likely at that time he had no
idea ol any other career. Hut he
struggled, ns hundreds ot others
struggled In that terrible country,
tn dn his duty, anil In turn In at the
end of the vear a good account ut
llir trade. Ile soon became known
a* one ol the best bargainers lor lurs
in the company's service, and picked
up the dialects nl the Indian tribes
wilh a remarkable lacility.
After ten years nt it he was pro
nioted Irnm tbe trader's vocation tn
be an agent ol the company nn the
bleak const ol Labrador, perhaps tha
most ilreaillul place in all the continent.
"In that day," aa Kenneth Bernard. Ibe biographer nt Lord strath-
lima relate*, "almost a blindness I.II
upon this agent ul the 11II.I*., a
blindness that comes Irnm snow, snd
knows no curing that rough men may
give to It. Only once a year came
the company's ship, through the
strait* ol Belle Isle. To wait lor
it meant that he should go through
llle blind—meant the ead ot all
things. He took two Indians ot hia
people, hi the dead hush ol midwinter, and aet out upon a tramp ol
3,000 miles, Irom the tar coast ot
Labrador to tbe City ol Montreal.
"Struggling through almost dead,
he came at last belore the resident
governor ol tbr company, la the corn-
tort ol the city. Sir Oeorge Simpson, the governor, looked at Mm,
heard his tale, then asked abruptly:
" 'Who gave you leave to quit your
" 'Who could!' replied tha agent,
'since ao maa Uvea within a tbou-
aaaa- ssllas al mil'
" 'II It be but a choice between
your eyes and the service ol the
company,' thundered the governor,
'get back to your post as quickly as
you can!'
The agent obeyed. The terror ot
that journey no ntiin mnn write.
Once, in recent yearB,- l,nrd Strath-
cona was asked to describe it, "Nn,
no—I can't,' he Bald, 'it is too terrible to think annul.' "
Ile stumbled back tu hi* post alone,
alter many days and many night* in
the great silence. Twu hundred
miles hack in llie depths lie hud lelt
his two Indians, dead of exhaustion,
tear, und hunger.
Thirty years In ull llnnulil Smith
spent in banishment in the Irozan
north. Almost u working lifetime.
Yet when he lett it his life's work
was all belore him. He had married In the solitudes the lady wbn is
now Lady Stratheona, and she had
borne him one daughter.
He bad become a man ol iron amid
those granite, snowy wastes, ever
climbing up the ladder of the company. Slowly making use ol every
opportunity, he advanced Irom trades
to lector, to chiel factor. Laet of
all, at forty-eight years of age, h*
emerged Irom the wilderness, and
was appointed to the governarship nl
the company, witn offices at Montreal.
At this time his beard was black
and wiry, aad heavy black ■ brows
above his eyes gave him a stern and
uncompromising appearance. The
snow tan—which is stranger than the
tan nl the sun-had made hlm dark aa
aa Indiaa. Seven years later, in
1885, at Cratgellachie, Hritish Columbia, a man whnse hair was
snowy white drove a gulden spike
into the cedar tie upon which the
rails ot the Canadian Pacific railway
met Irom east to west. It was the
same man—Donald Smith—but in
those years ol constant struggle, ol
incessant labor and anxiety, the
black-bearded, sturdy man had
changed to a while haired veteran.
Tbey are years upon which Lord
Stratheona may well lonk back wilh
pride aad satisfaction.
.lust alter he had become bead ol
tbe company in Canada, he had an
opportunity nf showing his powers
as a diplomatist. The insurrection
in the Red River settlement, now included in the province ol Manitoba,
arose chiefly from a tear on the part
nl the hall-breed* and tbe natives
tbat their rights would not be respected when the territory was
transferred tn the government id
Canada. They had nothing against
the Hudson's Hay company, and, indeed, were on the most friendly
lerms with its ultlcers. Sir John
Macdonald lelt that Lord Stratheona, nr Donald A. Smith, aa he
was then known, was the man to go
to Winnipeg, with a view tn straight
ta the matter out.
So he went, with the wisest powers, and he used them with the finest
discretion lie had a trying time
among the follower* of Louis Kiel,
aad frequently hi* lifr na* in danger. However, his tact, his ability,
aad his knowledge ut men, stood him
ia good part, aad the tack 0| the Insurrection was broker, betnre* the
Hed Itiver expedition, under l,nrd
Wolneley, appeared on the scene.
It was then Ihat Donald Smith
conceited the idea ul a railroad to
ran Irom ths Atlantic coast tn th*
Pacinc, across Ontario, Manitoba,
and the Territories. Though he had
little taste tor politic*, he entered1
parliament in order lo lurther his
darlag scheme. Knglish financiers
turned a deal ear lo appeals lor
capital to build the railroad; it was
impossible to carry it through aa a
government project. So a company
was formed, which was ultimately
capitalized at £13,000,000 ol stuck

Lord Htrathciuia has repeatedly
stated that he would have heen much

Canadian Pacific railway project,
but there Is little doubt that, white
he lost heavily oa the actual flaanc

development ol the Northwest vastly eahaaced his fortuae.

Why Some People
Never Able to
Izaak Walton was a great fisherman.
When he started out to fish in his favorite
stream he did not cast his tackle promiscuously
wherever he saw water, nor did he angle in any
part of the stream because it happened to be
Experience had taught him that right behind
that big log, where those ripples were faintly
gurgling, there was likely to be a fine specimen
of the finny tribe waiting lor his coming.
And he knew that just beneath that tree
stump was a'big hole wherein reposed a big
fellow feeling secure from observation.
Walton knew just where to throw his line to
find the fish that he wanted, and that helped to
make him the great fisherman that he was.
The novice who does not know about the
habits ot the fish might have cast his line within
a few feet of the places where Walton would and
then wonder why he could not catch them while
Walton got so many.
The novice at fishing is like the person who
Buys His Needs Promiscuously
and, like the novice, wonders why he cannot buy
as. successfully and with as much satisfaction at
do others.
Walton learned to become a great fisherman
by making a study of the habits of the fish.
The person who buys his needs successfully is
able to do so only after making a study of where
and when to buy.
The reading of the advertisement supplies
that knowledge.
The man who does not read the advertisements is just about as successful at buying hit

in tin- district it was thought that
tliat industry should be specially represented nml the proposition was
put up to thp lunihermcn ot South
Kast Kootenay to contribute the
materia! for the buildings That they
responded promptly and heartily to
the suggestion goes without savin*;
because they are as a body first-class
business people ami have shown their
publie splritediiess and enterprise in
this matter.
The city council contributed the
sum of $2(10 nml the city cquncll of
Lethbridge n like amount,' in view
of the fact Ihat they are getting a
permanent building on tlieir own exhibition grounds,
Tbe building will be available fnr
the purposes of the Cranbrook board
of trade and the t'ranbrook Agricultural association at all times when
they may desire to use it (or exhibition purposes.
Among (tie lumber companies the
following contributed:
Tbe Crows Nest Puss Lumber Co.,
Tbe Kast Kootenay Lumber Co.,
King Lumber Mills, Ltd , Standard
Lumber Co., Staples Lumber Co.,
Crunbrook Sash ami Door t'o.,
Adolph Lumber Co., linker Lumber
Co., The Taylor Lumber Co., The
[Joss-Saskatoon Lumber Co., Fernie
Lumber Co., Klk Lumber Co.
• Tbe plans of the building were ron-
tributeil by Cranbrook's well known
architect, V. S Kosseter, who showed bis public spiiitriliiess by (tnii.tr,
ibis work gratuitously.
The buildint; itself is thirty feel
square with a handsome pillared
porch in front. It is very attractively painted in light and dark colors outside ami inside it is finished
in old Knglish style, the celling being beamed, and bung with hammered iron electric chandeliers of appropriate design. At the further end
is a Pert attractive fireplace built in
rustic -style uf large boulders, tapering from the lloor to the ceiling.
The agricultural exhibit collected
ami arranged by lhe Cranbrook Agricultural association occupies much
tiie larger part of the wall space and
thanks to tbe thoroughness of that
organization a very creditahfe display indeed bas lieen provided.
The Herald some little while back
gate a pretty full list of Ihe exhibitors contributing to this display.
Suffice it now to say that the distriet is pretty thoroughly represented, specially line show ings lieing
made by Marysville, St. Mary*s
Prairie, ami St.  Ktigcne Mission.
The lumber exhibit is small but is
intended rather to give an idea of tlie
character of timber whicb is grown
iu Ihe districl and the nature of the
wood products into which il is manufactured. The Kast Kootenay Lumber company, the .Sash and lloor
company, the Crows Nest Pass Lumber company, and the King Lumber
Mills are amongst the principal contributors to tbe exhibit.
The upper portion of the walls is
very attractively decorated with a
number of hunting trophies contributed by several townspeople, including Mr. Mitchell, the taxidermist and Mr. A. i>  Cameron.
The mineral exhibit, (fully described in these columns some little while
back) is of the most attractive
character, and through the energy, ol
Mr. .Joseph Ityan, wjio is perhaps
more familiar with tlie ores nf the
district than any other available
person, tiie great possibilities of this
district are amply displayed. Per
haps no liner exhibit of the various
minerals which are mined in South
Kast Kootenay has ever been brought
together, and Mr. Kyan has placed
his services at the disposal of the
board of trade for the purpose of
setting up and taking charge of the
exhibit am) telling the interested
public of what is doing and what can
to done in this district in connection
with mining.
The erection id the building has
been under the charge of Mr. Harold
Darling and tbe perfection with
which he has carried out tbe undertaking does him great credit.
The fact that great numbers of
visitors are daily filling the Cranbrook building and that it has made
a decided hit at the Congress is the
best Justification of the course whieh
ttie board of trade has pursued, nnd
Hie advertising which the city and
district is receiving and will receive
in this way is hound to result in a
substantial benefit, and its great
possibilities in an agricultural, mining and lumbering way are being
brought home in a most effective

Kditor the Cranbrook Herald:
Sir: At the present time there appears to be a unanimity both in the
town and among the ranchers that
we should get together and form a
municipality at once, in fact it is
impossible to get along successfully
without one, as tlte constitution of
our country is of such a character
that the laws are so framed so as
to meet the needs of man in the particular locality iu which he lives to
the very best advantage. The word
municipal means freedom, and that
is why we need a municipality. There
is not much freedom in having to
travel to Nelson, a distance of ItM
miles to Inspect the ussessment roll.
Tliere is not much freedom in paying
S2.iiiii.lin per year more for your water supply aud insurance premiums
than we should. There is not much
freedom iu allowing a .company lo
cheat us out of one of the best
hydro-electrlc powers in the world.
Nor Is there much freedom f»r the
rancher who Is making the country
what it is to pay three times . iu
taxes what he would were he iu a
well organized municipality. The present conditions are, however, ideal
lor the grafter What is a grafter?
A grafter is a fallen degenerate who
has lost the vital principles of truth
and uprightness and is a snare to
any community, and u curse to any
nation. No community will ever de.
velope with tliese stumbling-blocks
in Ihe way, therefore get rid of them
ut once. Ilut you say tell us how-
grafting works in figures. Well, it
is said that there arc 9,waa acres of
land iu this valley that have not paid
my taxes into the provincial treasury. It is said that over 10,000
acres in this valley is paying only
ibout one-fourth of what it ought to
pay. A gentleman said to me a
short time ago that he saw a piece
if work done ou the road and according to his figures the work
should have been done for $600.00,
nit $2,000.00 was paid for the work.
If we had a municipality we would
control our own water power and
tliere would be no chance of graft
with public moneys. The people did
well to send in the municipal petl-
sion, because the company who, 1
understand, had a charter, has allowed it to be cancelled by default
and now a municipality is pending,
therefore the company are naturally
•mt of it, as tbe priority of right iu
lhe (ioat Itiver canyon becomes the
property of a municipality inasmuch
as the company failed to develope
it. I understand that the assessment roll will tie inspected and
many appeals will lie made to the
supreme court of revision, and altogether likely the whole question of
the wild land in this district will
find its way to the supreme court,
from which thc assessment must
stand for at least two years. The
lust official report 1 have of the
amount of taxes collected In this
district showed about tl7.niHi.iUi
taxes collected, when we know when
the Appeal goes liefore the judge at
least SKO.WIO.UO will he collected. It
then seventeen thousand dollars is
all we require why not equalize this
amount and no one will be burdened
and tlie government don't need tbe
I understand a big municipal meeting is to be held shortly and if we all
get together we can get a municipality far enough on the way so as
to dispense with the need ot all these
legal proceedings But we have no
time tor delay. The matter can then
be taken up in a husiness like way,
and an active committee appointed
aud the whole business done with
Thanking you for the space,
Yours truly,

The Family Herald and Weekly
Star of .Montreal have announced
their programme for 1013, and subscribers are to receive greater value,
than ever before, and that is saying
a whole lot. In this western country, such a paper is a great blessing.
It interests everybody. The hints
and information it gives are worth
hundreds of dollars in a year. New
settlers cannot afford to be without
such a paper, nu other fills the bill
for the west like the Family Herald
and Weekly Star. In addition to
the paper for a whole year, each subscribed receives a most beautiful picture entitled "Mother's Treasures."
It is 23x29 inches, all ready for
framing. The picture atone would
sell at a two dollar bill in any art
store in the big cities.' Any home
not now getting the Family Herald
and Weekly Star should give it a
trial for 1918. They will never reg
ret it.
Word comes from Wardner that
Fat Dwyer, an employee of the C.P,
K. lumber mill, was instantly killed
on Tuesday by the reason of tbe
overturn of his wagon, loaded with
freight. Dwyer was seated on the
load at the time and was crushed to
death when it overturned. It appears
that the road is in very bad shape,
due to recent inclement weather. On
Tuesday the road was covered by
snow to a depth of several inches.
The snow had completely covered a
very bad spot into which the wagon
landed, with the result that it overturned, burying Dwyer under its

On Wednesday morning young Lou
Manning was found unconscious und-
ec the C.P.R. mill at Hull River. No
cause for his condition could lie ascertained, and he was brought into

that his jaw had been broken in
three places.
Ottawa, Oct. 23.—An extra of the
Canadian Gazette containing a notice
calling parliament together on
Thursday, November 31st, will issue
on Monday. The deiinite decision in
favor of a November session was
reached by the government on Saturday, when the customary proclamation was prepared.
Tbere have been few developments
in tbe political situation since Saturday. Today Henri llourassa arrived from Montreal and had a conference with Mr. Monk. So far as
can lie ascertained there will be no
change tn the course of Immediate,
events as a result of the conference.
It is expected that tbe formal announcement of the retirement of Mr.
Monk will be made on Tuesday alter
Premier Borden has had an opportunity of conference with the Duke of
Connaught, who returns to the capital on Monday.
When the name of Mr. Monk's successor will be announced is not
known, but in the best Informed
quarters it is believed it will not
lie delayed longer than a few days.
The name of I, T Marechal, K.C.,
Montreal, and Hon. T. Chase Cas-
graln of tbe International Waterways commission continue to he mentioned but Marechal would appear to
be the favorite guess. There Is still
some speculation as to whether nr
not Hon. W H Nantel will resign
Mr. Nantel who ts not saying anything one was or the other has
gone to .loliette to attend the marriage of his daughter.
A few months ago there was held
at Ottawa a conference of dairy experts and oflieials from all parts of
the Dominion. The meeting was
called by the honorable, the minister
of agriculture, for the purpose of
endeavoring to • perpetuate the uniformity tn quality and character    of
Canadian oheeue and butter*.that has
been responsible for the success ot.
Canadian^ dairy iug. As pointed out by
the' Dalfy arid Cold Storage commissioner, who presided over the conference, many things come up iu thc
practice of dairying over which
slight difference of opinion mny arise
so that.it seems desirable to bring
together [rom time to time those In
charge of dairy schools, and the chief
instructors, in the various provinces,
to discuss methods and practices, in
Order to arrive at some agreement as
a body of dairy advisors. The conference lasted two days, during
whicb time many matters of importance wero taken up and freely
discussed. Somo of these were the
pasteurization of whey, factory refuse in relation to tuberculosis in
hogs, testing and grading cream at
cream gathering creameries, whey
butter, methods of paying patrons
of cheese factories, and other subjects relating to the production of
butter and cheese. For the information of butter makers and cheese-
makers, and others interested in
dairying, there has been printed a
verbatim report of tbe proceedings
of this conference. Copies may be
procured by applying to the Publications Branch of the Department of
Agriculture, at Ottawa.
A lute London cable dispatch says:
Of course there are all kinds of rumors in the air about the future
movements of thc Prince of- Wajes.
Nothing definite bas been fixed yet,
but there is under consideration a
plan to send him to Canada in the
spring of 1914. If he goes to the
Dominion he'will probably he met at
.Montreal by the Duke of Connaught
.ind accompanied across the continent to Vancouver Iiy his uncle. He
will spend some time in the eastern
■ities and will do some big game
'muting in the Canadian Rockies.
From Vancouver he will travel by a
Mritish warship down tbe west coast
if the United States, through the
Pnnama Canal drop in at Jamaica
and then back to England.
