uggregute a list of special prizes to
the value uf one hundred and thirty
dollars and each class will also have
a full quota of ribbon**.
Classes are provided under the sume
classification as that arranged for the
fall fair prise list Issued for 1814.
Thc judging will be done by a capable man from tlie coast, the show secretary is Mr. A. H. l'lgott, P. 0, Box

(■ranbrook, B.C„ November 12th, 11)14
Straight ahead lies the broud safe
road to future progress, prosperity
and plenty for the residents of t'ranbrook und district. In times of business depression the voice of the pessimist Is heard rdnrlng above all the
rest. \\'e have heard liis dismal Bong
In years gone by, and ive shall hear it
again, it is true that this lias been a
lean year in tliis locality, but we have
lived through leaner years. Already
the sun is breaking through the
ClOUdB and every cloud has a silver
lining.   "Look Pleasant."
Various reasons have been assigned
for the change in the personnel of the
local Conservative association. A
prominent Conservative who claims to
be "right on the tiring line," reports
the outcome of tlio meeting last Friday us being directly ilue to the warfare waged between the two wings of
the party und that tin* best men won;
while others claim that the "frame-
up" in asking Mr. .lack Heed to tender his resignation as road superintendent, wus responsible for :\\w
change, Btating that men uf the opposite Bide "fell" for it like good fellows. Another reason for the change
and tin-1 one most generally accepted
was given to tlu* Herald by a loca1
Conservative who is familiar with tin
movements of the association. He
' said: "The great principle Involved
is the control of tlie .police commission. There is no use beating
about the bush In tliis matter. Tlljf
is the real cause."
The hyluw whicli will disfranchise
more than sixty householders in the
city was considered by the council al
the last meeting uud will reach it*-
final stage at the next meeting. Tills
bylaw has hail strong opposition ant.
every step of its progress hns been
opposed by Aldermen Campbell am
Lent;!;. Alderman Cameron was alsi
opposed to thi! bylaw, but he has not
been In regular att ndanct* at coun
ell meltings. The friends of the by
law are pleased to term It tlie elimin
ation of the "$..',00 vote." The ma.
who votes under the rights of the
$-i.O0   law   Is  subject  to  scathing  de
nunciation. The -tux of the whop
matter is that this uuestlon should Ik
dealt with hy the provincial government und should bo dropped by tin
municipal governments, in all othei
provinces iu Canada tlie huv provide;
for the householder's vote and re
cognizes his rights, hut in this prov
luce class legislation has been tin
order, recognizing only the rights of
the capitalist anil property owners. A
town governed solely by the property
owners will never progress in like
munner to that in whicli every -resident citizen lias a vote. Property owners are often blinded by the large
dollars before their eyes. As Alderman Campbell pointed out last Monday night the "Sii.OD vote" Ims never
elected a man to the council fn tin
history of Cranbrook who lias been a
disgrace to tlie town. Every alderman lias been ti good representative
citizen. Then, why censuro tin
"$2.oo vote?" Nearly a hundred law-
abiding residents who pay rent—and
I hereby pay taxes—will be disfranchised by the new bylaw. Tliey are
citizens who have their families hefe
nnd who expect to continue to make
their homes In the city. They are us
much Interested In tin* good and welfare of Cranhrook as any ratepayer.
No fair minded person could object to
(heir assistance in choosing the
mayor and aldermen, The council if
powerless to provide them wfth a vote
except through tin* $2.00 clause in the
law. Rather than disfranchise these
good citizens, rather than lay themselves liable to the suspicion of class
legislation and clique rule, so long as
tho $2.00 vote is not electing crooks
or fools Into alilermanic positions, it
would seem to the writer that the
i ity council might better let well
i 'lough alone tor the present and
bring pressure to bear on the provincial government to remedy this devious discrepancy in Itrltisii Columbia

An Interesting case was .before tho

only pay half price. After a little reflection the judge "decided he could
not sec things his way, stating that it
would take him twice as long to sec
the performance, and should 'be
charged a double admission.

As the result of a lire which, breaking out about nine o'clock Tuesday

nt the beginning of the match was
sliurt lived, for the splendid condition

Howevejr, the losers played on doggedly and wi re ever on the job to tnke

"Lest We Forget"
We need tn lie reminded quite us much as t<> lie informed.
Memory has been jocular!)' described as "the thing we
forget with."   Out ut shrill is apt to be out ol' mind.
An advertiser who relies on the memory of the public
leans on u broken reed. The absence of lis advertising
from the newspapers has been the heginniiiL' ot Ibe end
for many a firm. "The present suitor halh ctcr lhe advantage over Ihe absent lover.**
A business that has achieved II* magnitude or strength as
the result of faithful advertising plays Itself false if II
suspends or ceases Ils advertising, on lhe grounds of

At foes that press and leap to kill

Irrigated lands in Southern Alberta, j
when devoted to alfalfa growing, return a net profit ot eight per cent on a
valuation of over $100.00 per acre, according to S. S. Dunham, chairman of
the Rural Relations Committee of the
Lethbridge Board of Trade.
Mr. Dunham presented his figures
at a meeting of farmers, recently held
neur Lethbridge to petition the Dominion government to extend the Irrigation systems in Southern Alberta. A
petition, praying the government to
undertake Important Irrigation enterprises, was signed by ovor two hundred farmers. The cost of bringing
the land under Irrigation wus estimated at $18.00 per acre, und the farmers
expressed their willingness to pay
this amount, with Interest ut four per
cent., thc government to extend re-
puyment over a period of forty years.
It wns ln connection with the estimated cost of $18.00 per uere that
Mr. Dunham presented his figures.
"Get irrigation ut $18.00 un acre If
you can," ho said. "If you cannot get
It at $18.00 an acre, get It ut $50.00
or $80.00, but get lt."
Mr. Dunham proceeded to show tho
profits which Irrigation made possible. He instanced alfalfa, which has
come to be an Important crop In tho
irrigated ureas of Alberta, and presented the following figures for an
acre ot alfalfa: $1.00 an acre for
water; 75 cents for applying tho
water three times during the -season,
and $3.75 per acre for putting the
crop in stack—a total cost of $5.50
per acre. A crop of two and a half
tons per acre (many irrigation, farmers are getting four and five tons per
acre) would show a net profit of
$8.25 per acre at the low price of $5.50
per ton, without any depletion of the
soil, but actually Increasing Its fertility. On this basis alfalfa will pay
eight per cent net profit on land valued at $103.33 per acre.
The fact that farmers where irrigation is not available are petitioning
for it and are willing to bear the whole
cost of Its installation ls a tribute to

London, Nov. 10.—Rarely has London's population turned out In such
vast numbers to witness the Lord
Mayor's show as today, when Sir
Charles Johnston assumed the ancient
office. Interest ln the affair was immensely Increased by the show partaking largely of a military display,
In which Canadians played a most conspicuous part. Three hundred men of
nearly every branch of the service
now established at Salisbury travelled to London under the command
of Col. Williams and Col. Reid. A
detachment of Strathcona's Horse and
the Princess Pats Pets wcre also included. The men, who came from
each brigade, Including Cranbrook,
British Columbia men, received vociferous welcome. By special request of Sir Charles Johnston, the
Canadians were placed immediately
around the state coach, in recognition of his lordship's lifelong connection with the Dominion.

Louis Haws, the owner of a valuable gold mine some two miles east

over $30 per ton and some went as
high as $60 per ton. It Is reported
that In former times some of the ore
from this mine assayed $600 to tlie

confidence in the success of his mining operations.
