The outstanding attractions to lovers of beautiful scenery, offered visitors to Klko, arc the Elk river falls,
a mile or so below the town. Here,
far a stretch of two miles, is a
succession of scenes that cannot tail
to delight the eye. There is not only
the beauty of the rushing waters, but
the surrounding scenery is unsurpassed. In the distance snow-capped
mountains, rolling timber-covered
hills and here and there glimpses of
fine agricultural lands,
.fust at present, outside a fairly
extensive lumbering industry, there is
not a great deal doing in the immediate vicinity of Klko, but no, nne can
view the vast potential power in the
Klk river falls, without being impressed with the inevitable probability of their ultimately being harness

kind and another. Whilst ihe town
of Klko is well sustained by present
lumbering operations, a chief source
of its revenue is derived from visitors, attracted by its scenic charms
and excellent fishing and hunting.

The object tor which I Ins companv
was formed is to provide watfl and
light  for  the growing  town nf  Klko,
ami also to supply manufacturing and
railroad companies    with water   (oi
steam purposes
The directors and promoters ol the
Company  havo    expended   a eoiisiilii
aide amount of money ui ascertaining
the amount of water available, quality of the watel to In- used and in
Securing plans and maps, with is
timates    ot  tin*    cost  of  the  s\ ,t* in.
It Is proponed to take the SUppl]
of water from a lake lying about
Iwo mill's to Hie east ol the town
This lake will give an ample supply
for all purposes as the following
tracts   Irom    the   engineer's    report
"The source Di the supply is Silver

"Analysis was made by II. It Lake,
one ot the best chemists in Canada,
ami he found the water to he excellent.
"In February and March, the two
lowest water months, there was
flowing Irom the outlet of the lake
102.0(H) gallons per 21 hours. This
amount may tie only a partial outflow as lhe outlet ia through broken
rock and the full amount could not be
"It Is proposed to build two concrete core dams to raise the water
five feet. Ity this means fifteen feet
of water Is available, as tne Intake
will be ten feet below the present
surface level. Thin will give a dally
supply of 2f>2,MHl gallons. Allowing
80,000 gallons for railway purposes
and 11000 gallons   lor mill
tlie results have been entirely satisfactory.
Within two miles ot the town, the
progressive Investment company, of
which Mr. W. Frost, is the manager,
have a large tract under cultivation
They have recently planted upwards
of 7,000 two-year-old apple trees, in
addition to a large nursery. The
good work being done by this company will undoubtedly very shortly
result in attracting the attention of
practical farmers and fruit growers,
when valuable lands, now lying idle,
will soon be brought under cultivation.

Heath claimed lor Its own with
tragic suddenness last Monday morning one of Cranbrook's most respected citizens, one of the best known
men throughout the entire Kast Koo-
I may district, Archibald Leitch, sr.
Ile had boon around town in tin*
morning and apparently was enjoying
fairly good health. He met and conversed with several business men, to
all of whom he spoke of his recent
indisposition ami intimated that he
was leaving for the east to undergo
medical treatment, hut none of them
with whom lie conversed ever dreamed his end vvas so close. lie took a
run around town in his automobile
and then returned to his home for
lunch He entered liis home apparently in good health and spirits,
stretched out his arms and fell forward into the arms nf his son
Archie, sunk thence to the lloor and
expired almost immediately.
News of this tragic event quickly
circulated around town, hut, at
first, was received with incredulity,
it was but such a short while back
that the deceased had been seen on
the streets. When the sad intelligence was definitely confirmed there
was but one universal note of sorrow
for the passing of sn esteemed a citizen and of sympathy for the bereaved
Some few wceVs ago, whilst nn a
trip to the prairies, Mr. Leitch par* [
took of some strawberries and
cream, this brought on an attack of
stomach trouble, ptomaine poison ensuing, and undoubtedly was the cause
I heart failure, which brought his
useful life to so sudden a close.

family residence yesterday afternoon

ilgniiicani tribute to tlir memory

chief Justice Hunter presided at
the civil u'■.sizes which opened at the
court house ou Monday morning at
11 o'clock
The first case called was thai of
Muss vs. C.P It., an action lor damn-
ges against the c P.R, brought hy
Joshua Moss, who claimed be received injuries near Duniiinre Junction,
\lta . in November, IfWH, while engaged as a section foreman
M. A. Macdonald, nf this city, ap
peered (nr the ptuintifT and Vi. A
Macdnnnld, K.C, of Vancouver, and
W. K. (iurd. of this city, fnr the de
fendantSi The plaintiff, Moss, claim
I'd that while tightening a nut with a
defective wrench it slipped and be
fell. His font in (ailing catching
under the rail and causing a bursting
of the cords of the right knee, leav
ing him in n crippled condition.
The ael ion proceeded before a jury
composed as follows: P. DeVere Hunt
(foreman) 0. B, Hrown, M. (fuain, N.
I. Harrison, A. L. McDcrmot, c.
Little, W Chlsholm and E. II. Patmore.
Several uitness-cs were examined in
Ihe interests ol both plaintlfl        and
Witnesses fnr the defence, section-
men, engaged with Moss at the time
if the alleged accident, emphatically
declared, to the obvious surprise of
Moss' counsel, that he had received-
his injuries not on llie railway, hut
by falling down a cellar in the section house in which he was living.
At the close of the case motion (nr
non-suit was made on behalf of the
defendants and M. A. Macdonald stated to the court that if it would appear that the plaintiff's claim was
not genuine he did not want tn In
Identified with it,
His lordship withdrew the case
from the jury, remarking, in so
"Well, I think the action ought tu
be dismissed on the ground that the
plauitiiTs story mi the face of it
trumped up and perjured. The first
report he sent in wus a report which
obviously could not have been made
al the time he swears to it, because
he made the statement that he attended to duty us long as he could,
uud then he has sworn today that he
wus carried oft the Held Immediately
alter his accident and that he made
nut this report while iu hed. The
other report wliich he tells us today
was made on the lith or 1'itli, obviously Could not have
been made on lhat day
ou account of the testimony o!
the assistant station agent, who
has shown us lhat this document
could imt have been issued before the
third day of March, 1000. 1 think it
would be uu insult on the intelligence
nf a jury to ask them in believe tin
plaintiff under such circumstances. 1
therefore dismiss tlie jury from the
further consideration nf this case."
Action dismissed with costs.
Tbe next ease called was that ol
P. Woods and Co. vs. C.P.R. and
Erieksnn, an action to reenver the
price id goods snld aud delivered by
plaintiffs tn Stevenson and Co..
while engaged in logging contract for
the C.P.R. at Skookumchuck, the
plaintiffs alleging that they were
lurnislied on the guarantee of the C.

hearing at the next court unless ■*-.
settlement is reached in the meantime.
A. B. Macdonald for plaintiff, W. A
Macdonald, K.C, for C.P.R. and W
K. (iurd for Erieksnn.
The next case, that of Drew vs.
C.P.11*. was an action brought bv
Hurry Drew, of Kimberley, to recover $15110 lor services rendered the
C.P.R. during several years past as
station and baggage agent ut Kimberley. The action was settled out
of court, judgment being entered for
the plaintiff for %MM ami costs.
Next in order was the case of tin
Kernie Construction company vs.
Cranbrook hoard of school trustees
and the Home Hank.
This action arose out of the Construction of the Cranbrook puhlu
school hy the plaintiffs, who were
taken off tbe job before completion,
the sch-mil trustees finishing the work
themselves. The plaintifls brought
the action for damages for wrongful
dismissal und the value of Hie work
already  done.
Tlie defendants claim that tbey
have already paid more than the
plaintiffs are entitled to and counter-claim lnr damages for alleged defective work.
The case opened on Tuesday mom

where a view could be obtained.
So well satisfied with tin* school
building was the chief justice, that
he decided to continue the hearing of
the case on the premises, In the vacant class room.
On the resumption of the ease or

was advised that nu the suggestion nf

who .should Ih* empowered to nuke

report their findings to tbe court, ufter wliich the hearing of the case

adopted, as it would mean a great

The hold-up eases came lo a quite
uuexpec iii termination al Kernie
last Saturday in the acquittal ol
Varlow and Hubeoek, two nf the men
who were alleged tn have been    Im-
icated in the affair al Coal Creek.
Iu addressing lhe jury on Kriday
afleeiinon, Mr. RoSH prefaced his
■pening remarks witii u violent attack on the attorney-general for his
supposed actions in the ease.
I hud hoped thut the attorney*
general would he here in person to
conduct this case," he said, ''when
my remarks would be much stronger
than what Ihey nre. I cannot lind
language strong enough tn condemn
his actions. This case bus excited a
great deal nf notoriety, not only
locally hut throughout the entire
province, and you will also know that
on account of one of these accused
men holding an official position there
has been considerable feeling displayed and a number of the citizens
think thai he should be dealt with
as an example. There are two men
connected with this against whom,
for some reason or other, Ibe crown
has seen fit to bring iu one indictment." The situation with reference
to Habcock is one that rests upon
the evidence of accomplices. The
evidence that the crown should bring
forward should be of the purest nnd
clearest kind that it is possible to
produce. There is no class of evidence wliich is regarded with more
suspicion than thut of accomplices.
The only evidence which the crown
aduces as corroborative is a letter
written by Habcock to Kred Uelanger
from Cranbrook asking bim to send
him (Habcock) some money, which
he, Habcock, would settle when Uelanger came up to Kernie. Tbis
letter, Ross said, was capable of two
"Coming to the Varlow case, the
conduct of the gentleman who is at
the head of the administration of
justice in this province, is such, as I
have stated before, that I cannot ton
strongly condemn," said Mr. Ross.
"Now that this case bus become of
such interest to the public the attorney-general thought be could get a
little cheap popularity hy his "grand
stand play" in convicting tins police-
man (Varlow) whether lie was guilty
or not. It may be that 1 bave a
great admiration for the attorney-
general with regard to other matters
ami we may he friends, but I certainly would refer to his conduct in this
caw, if he were present, iu stronger
Mr. W. A. MacDonald, K.C, of
Vancouver, crown counsel, in his
opening remarks, referred to the remarks made by Mr. W. IL Ross on
behalf of tlie accused, mat said that
it was a fine speech, marred in two
ways, viz , in the abuse ol the crown
ami the officials assisting the crown.
With regard to his learned friend's
caustic remarks and that they would
be stronger if tlie attorney-general
were present, he remarked that he
very much doubted thut, as they
could not have been stronger.
With reference to his client Ross'
claim that Varlow had been ill-
treated, Mr. MacDonald said: "This
man should have been incarcerated at
Nelson, but tin? attorney-general's department allowed bim to be kept at
the city jail, Kernie. at the expense
to the province, for the purpose ul
counsel seeing his client every day
and preparing bis defense."
Next August there is to Ik* a band
contest in the city of Leshbridge and
it is expected that there will be
bands present on that occasion from
all over Western Canada The members of the t'ranbrook band are anxious to participate in that contest
and their ambition is a most laud
able one. Kor the past two years
tbis band has been doing hard work
and in (bis way has brought the organisation to a high state nf excellence If ihe Cranhrook band takes
part in the contest it will Ik- a big
advertisement for Cranbrook, one of
tlie best in fact and for this reason
alone the citizens should do all In
their power to assist tbe band In
their efforts to arrange for tin* ex
petise ol the trip. Next Thursday
evening the band will hold a social
on the Catholic church grounds.
which have been kindly donated for
the purpose by Kather Choinel. Tlie
proceeds of thi-* entertainment will
lie turned into a fund for the purchase nf new uniforms. Cranbrook
people should make this social a
great financial success. The boys
will give a fine entertainment and a
fee of 25c. will be charged. It Is a
