up at the new grounds, uud the big
event on the progrum of thc day will
be a real Indian stampede, which hus
provod u first class attraction when
staged fu other places. There will also be some horso racing, but there
will be no attempt to attract the big
men iu the racing game us in the last
two or three years, with such disappointing resultH at the lust, and the
more or les*. local events whicli will
be put on will likely be found to pro.
vide every bit as good sport as here-1

there will be the usual track sports, |
baseball, with the customary dunces
at night. One big attraction will undoubtedly be the music for tlie day
which will be furnished by the newly I
organized local band, now hard at
work under the leadership of Mr. Lee
Edwards. i
The general committee which has
lined up the preliminary arrange-!
ments will in all probability call a
public meeting shortly when the var-
ious committee to take charge of the j
different lines of activity In connec-
tion with the celebraton will be named. I
The members of the Cranbrook Re-
tall Merchants' Association, who have
undertaken to put on the annual ball
in aid of the St. Eugene Hospital, are
now busy at work on the erring**,
ments. The big event is
on Easter Monday, April lith, at the]
Auditorium. A commltee composed
or Messrs. J. P. Kink and W. H. Wilson have had the preliminary arrangements in hand, and will now
proceed to name their different subcommittees, in accordance with the
ii.tlioiiiy which the members of the
Association gave them by resolution
at a meeting held on Tuesday evening of this week. The Cranbrook
Dance Orchestra has been engaged
to provide the music, and will be on
hand full strength and with the best
of their good music. The prLe of the
tickets bun been set nt $8.60 per ticket, admitting a couple, and $1.00 for
extra ladies. The members of the
Merchants" Association may seek a
little assistance which hag been offered to them In disposing of the tickets, but outside of (his it lias been
decided that the members themselves,
w'th the help of their wives, shall
iiiitku themselves responsible for uu
arrangements in connection with the
affair. This event has always been
one of the biggest events of the season aud the merchants nre determined that this year it will he put over in
such n way as to be counted every bit
successful as In former yours.

Editor of the Herald.
The big "Drive" lust Saturday In
aid uf the "Save thu Children Fund"
was respouded to iu a very hearty
milliner by tiie people ol Cranbrook
and thu surroundlug hamlets, some
or which have not yet turned In their
returns to date. Considering tlie prevailing epidemic of la grippe that has
fastened Its hold upon the community,
nothing daunted, the brave corps of
volunteer canvassers started out last
Saturday morning although many of
the committee were laid up, substitutes gladly voluteered for the house
to house canvass that was made. The
following results speak for the work
accomplished, every cent of which
will ho forwarded to Ottawa at the
end of this week, there being no ofllce
expense, nor reductions ln any manner fn connection with the campaign.
It may be of interest to the people
of Cranbrook to know us the question
has been raised a good many times
during the past month, what haa Great1
Britain done or is doing in this matter. A good deal of prominence has
been given to the effort that our United States friends have accomplshed,
in this terrible famine.
On March 18th In the British House
of Commons suppllmentary estimates
were passed granting (5,500,000 for,
the Russian famine relief. Staggering under colossal financial debts i
and burdens, we see the heart of the
nation Ib right. Mr. Chamberlain de-,
clared "We are dealing with a visitation of Qod following the disastrous
example of the folly of man/' Next
to America, he said, Great Britain was
giving most towards the relief of
Russia. Mr. Chamberlain also pointed out that since the end or the war
Great Rrltalc h* 1 contributed $270,-
w I   . .a Europe In addition
. +^5,000,000 in export credits to
help the purchase of goods in this
country, moreover, private charity had
contributed 12,350,000 to the relief ot
Russian Famine Fund.
In moving the grant the Right Hon.
H. A. Pisher said that It was no exag.
geratfon to say that the dimensions
and horrors ot the famine found no
parallel until they went beck to the
great Indian famine of 1770, which
carried away 10,000,000 inhabitants.
It was quite conceivable that this famine might exceed those dimensions.
James O'Grady, labor member, describing his own experience In the famine area, handed around for inspection in the House of Commons a piece
of Russian bread which looked like
greenish chalk. He said it was made
of grass and sort of sweet earth.
Through the lack ot one simple drug,
atropine, he said, people were dying
of starvation, were going blind
through tracoma and there was grave
tear that an outbreak of typhus and
cholera  would set  iu.
British and United State* authorities are working together, the U.S.
providing the machinery of distribution. Neither of them trust the Bolshevik authorities to dispense relief.
The fund Is still open, any organizations who have not responded to
this great appeal of mankind, your
contribution will be gladly received
ai either one of thc banks or the secrets ry-treusii rer of the local organ
A vote of the ratepayers Is culled
for on the Waterworks By-law which
has been brought forward by Alderman Balment, calling for the raising
of the sum of $3-5,000 by debentures,
to lake place on Thursday or next
week. This may seem very little
time in which to consider tho bylaw,
but it is imperative that if uny work
is to be done on tho reservoir this season, it must be started right away, before the period of high water. it Is
explained thut Jt uot intended necessarily to expend ull of the sum now
asked for. but what work Is found essential to ensure a better supply of
water, anil ouo which will stand against the emergencies of summer uud
winter, will be undertaken Immediately, leaving a bulaucc in hand available against any emergency. Tlie
attention of the ratepayers is directed to tlie announcement ol' Superintendent Eakin on the mutter, which
appears on another page, und also to
a communication on the subject which
is published elsewhere.
The School Board haB held further
sessions of lute at which the matter
of the proposed additional school accommodation has been discussed. A
meeting was held on -Saturday lust
with a full board In attendance, Mrs,
P. B. Miles being able to attend for
the first time since her recent illness.
The board has also mot with the
committee of five In regard to the
erection of a separate eight roomed
school building, hut the discussion on
thl» question lias been held up somewhat on account of the Inability of the
board to secure from Victoria plans
of an eight roomed brick building,
such as the proposal embodies. The
nearest they have been able to get
to it Is the plan of an eight roomed
frame school at Countenny, V.I., and
ln a reply to a wire sent there as to
the cost of that building, the board
received word that without a ventilating system, the cost was $45,000.
lt is hard lo estimate what the cost of
the same building in brick would be,
but the board is of the opinion that
this would run about $12,000 <
$13,000 more, und with the cost of
site, ventilating system, architect's
fees, debenture depreciation, and certain modifications and charges that
would have to be made, the total cost
of such a building would run over
In tho meantime an effort wfll be
made to get tlie full cost of the proposed eight roomed addition to the
Centra] School, including the cost of
securing the extra playground space
desired. A further meeting of the
board and the committee of five will
likely be held very shortly, on the return of Mr. \V. A. Nlsbet to the city,
and lt Is expected that some definite
decision will be made in tlle matter
very soon, and the second plebisvite
promised at the ratepayers' meeting
put to the people, so that the building
project can  be gone ahead with.
The annual G, V. V. A. masquerade

Invermere, Mar. 22.—A painful accident happened at her own home to
little Thora Forster, the daughter of
Harold B. Forster, ex-M.P.P. from
this district. It appears that while
her elder sister and young brother
were playing with a straw chopper
that the little glri went to touch tha
cog wheels with her mltted right
hand with the result that her thumb
was drawn Into the cogs and the
whole top was badly lacerated requiring the immediate attention of Dr.
Coy. With the skill which ta being
shown It la more than likely that tht

The passing of Joseph Walsh, which
took place on Friday lust at the St.

to his hand, getting a piece of enamel
from B dish embedded In the flesh.
Trouble later developed from this trivial happening, and blood poisoning

his death he was close upon sixty
years of age.
Going to Fort Steele from Calgary
about 1900, he took employment tn

au accumulation of correspondence

most contentious of these was a communication from tlie Vancouver Anglers' Club in the form of a petition.
Unfortunately It embodied two good
suggestions with another of a contentious nature, and brought the Hod
and Gun Club too near the verge of
politics, which it has hitherto very
successfully steered clear of. The
petition suggested the continuation
of tlie Game Conservation Hoard und
Its present policy In regurd to the
gume in the province, taking tlie enforcement of tho gume laws out of the
hands of the provincial police, but
asked also for the reinstatement of,

taking any action ou the first two1
suggestions it could do so on its own

itltimutely taken, though un amendment wus advanced to lay the document before the new executive for
their consideration aud action. This
amendment was voted down, however.
The report of tlie secretary-treasurer for the pust yeur showed membership dues of $144, with total revenues of $419.78. Expenditures for
the year were mostly in connection
with the hatchery operations carried
on last yeur. and there is still a balance left fn the treasury of $185*57.
The work of the club was also outlined for the past twelve months, and
showed that among other things proper screens hud been placed on irrigation ditches; same 90,000 Kamloops
trout fry had been placed lu local waters for propagation purposes, at a
total cost to (he club or $198.45; a

planted out locally as an experiment;
and a batch of twenty phesants had
been introduced into the district. It
wag urged tlmt steps be taken for the
establishment here of a hatchery for

Votes of thanks were tendered to

Roads and Trails.- -With a view to
the permanent improvement   of the
main highways, surreys were undertaken to secure data required Iu connection with the federal-aid program,
the most Important of these surveys
being from  Dorr to Gateway;  from
Wasa to Sheep Creek;  sections from
Canal Flat northerly;  sections from
Cranbrook to Yuhk (especially Moyie
Lake Diversion); and the survey for
road t'i connect the town of t'orhin
th the Crowsnest
Personal Investigations were made
tonnection with the following:
Waterton I^ake-Flathead and Flathead
Boundary bridge and road connections
for the purpose of assisting oil enterprises and other interests in coal and
timber situated in tiie south-east corner of the province .itid isolated from
the road system of British Columbia
and from any railway connection, The
Waterton I_ake route would give access to the roads and railways of Alberta, the Boundary bridge proposition to Montana, and Crowsnest connection with Alberta, thus co-operating with Alberta Highway engineers
in the matter of having the British
Columbia portion of the Inter-Provincial highway meet the Alberta portion
of it at a suitable place. The junction
of the Inter-Provincial highway at
Klngsgate with the road from Spokane
was similarly gone into with Idaho
highway engineers. The Cold Creek
country was explored in reference to
bringing it Into touch with Waldo and
Cranbrook; Coal Creek diversion, for
he purpose of arranging for an improved route away fom the waBte-
dumps of the Crow.-, Nest Paas Coal
'ompany; Elk Valley road improvements for the purpose of renewing
bridges and repairing tlit- road in tbe
Upper Elk Valley for settlers and coal
interests; Wattsburg roads, for the
purpose of investigating improvements in conjunction with the owners
of a large mill now being built; Vahk
Diversion, to give better access to tba
town from the Inter-Provincial highway; Harrogate Gravel-pit, to co-operate with the Canadian Pacific Hallway in the matter of changing the
main trunk road to Golden, so that
access could be had by the railway
company to the gravel-pit; railway
crossing*, to be install'*d at Vahk, at
Caithness, near Morri <■*<■*■•>-. and near
Wasa; trails up St Mary River and
perry creek to look Into the question
of bridges and Other impovements;
also numerous proposition 1 of minor
scope, such as access to individual
farms, etc.
With regard to work:: undertaken,
the following were the most extensive; Wnsa Fill on portion of improved location near Wasa; an Improved diversion on the Bull Hlver to
Fort Steele section; Fort Steele
streets; Inter-.Proviiir.il! highway,
gravelling and reconstruct ons; Sel-
lentin Diversion, new road near Invermere; Improvements to North Star
Mine road, Sullivan Mine road. Paradise Mine road, HorsciUef road to
mines in Columbia district, St. Eugene Mine road; sidewalks built In
Kimberley; Bull River south road
for settlers; Peghln road for settlers

Those who have had In
charge the arrangements for
the organized efforl recently
made on behalf of the starving
children of Russia have every
reason to be well satisfied with
the result of their labors. The
substantial contribution which
Cranbrook as a whole has made
indicates that the ears of the
people are not yet closed to
the call of suffering humanity
no matter wliere it arises. Adults have reasoning powers to
fathom the cause for suffering,

the aid to miners and the ore
sampling plant, and the wonderful results that are to ensue
from the co-operation of all-
powerful Liberal triumvirate
of a Liberal member in the Legislature, a Liberal government
at Victoria and a Liberal minister at Ottawa. The coming
campaign here has great possibilities it is admitted.
In all seriousness, however,
what do the electorate think of
the spectacle of promises being
made wholesale in the by-elections, involving the expenditure of huge sums of money,
while at the same time the
chief organ of Liberalism in
Vancouver comes out with the
story that the work of the faculty of agriculture at the provincial university is likely to be
dropped because an extra sum
is needed that wouldn't half

was not going to he used for the
to refuse.    There was
objection offered to this efforl
proper purpose, but would
merely serve to strengthen the
hand of the Bolshevik government of the country, lt is not
likely, however, that Great Britain and the United States,
having recognized the need,
would give in millions as they
have, without first safeguarding thc channels of distribution, or making sure that the
money would not go where it
was intended to go and for the
proper purpose and that purpose alone.
"Charity begins at home"
was another misplaced maxim
occasionally met with by the
famine fund workers, but surely uo one seriously seeks to imply that If any deserving local
case was brought to light the
famine fund workers would not
be among the very first to respond. They would be, and
quicker than those who seek
to raise such u question, for
those whose eyes are not open
to recognize such a need as the
Russian problem now presents
are not any more liable to be
looking for a cause to begin
with their charity al home.
"Charity begins at home," said
one man some lime ago, talking on the Russian relief effort,
and half an hour later when the
same man was slopped on the
street on behalf of a dance that
wasn't even for charity, he
cheerfully handed out two dollars. Charity, as a matter of
fact, in its broadest sense, is
not something that begins anywhere or has any limits; it is
universal and all-inclusive, and
as a saving virtue is not likely
to he cultivated by a parochial
outlook which never gives it
proper scope.
Hut a bridge and a road can win
by-elections, and the agricultural course in the university
won't. Yet which is more important to the future of the
province—the winning of a by-
election or the development of
tlie agricultural possibilities
yet untouched?

To the Ratepayers of the
City of Cranbrook
On the 30th of March yon will be asked to vote on a
money By-Law authorizing the borrowing of $35,000 to
be used (if necessary) for the purpose of improving or
renewing the dam and reservoir of our water supply system, also for the purpose of procuring a greater supply of
water, by bringing in water from Gold Creek. Before you
vote on this By-law 1 will endeavor to explain a few
things that I think you should consider.
The present dam is the dam made use of by the old
Water Works Co. and was taken over along with the rest
of the old wooden spstem when the City bought out the
Water Works Co. It is an earth and timber dam but we
have absolutely nothing on record as to the class of construction, and it is impossible at the present time to say
anything regarding its condition, otlier than what can
be seen on the surface.
All that I am sure of is that it has been in use over
16 years, the foundation may lie in good condition but lt
is not safe to undertake any work on the dam of any kind
without first having the money available to rebuild, If wc
find that such a course is necessary.
The reservoir is badly in need of cleaning out, but as
you can readily understand, this cannot be done thoroughly without taking a certain amount of chance on the dam.
In regards to an additional water supply, as you are
well aware it has been necessary every summer to put
certain restriction on the use of water for lawn services
during the dry months. This is not a fad but is an absolute
necessity in order to keep the water In the reservoir at
normal height to assure fire protection, then again it has
been necessary for years back to always ask for the cooperation of the citizens in conserving water as much as
possible during the extreme cold weather of the winter,
this fact shows for itself that there are practically two
seasons of the year namely, the extreme warm weather ln
summer and the cold weather In winter, during which
time we have practically no surplus of water.
The present winter hns beon an exceptionally severe
winter on water systems not only in Cranbrook but practically throughout the whole western country. We might
not have another winter like this for yeara to come, on
the other hand we might have a certain amount of trouble
every winter and summer, and while wc have always been
able to carry on yet at the same time we are taking
chances that are absolutely unsafe.
The reason for asking for a bulk sum of $35,000 is
because we are not in a position at Ihe present time to
submit an actual estimate of tlie work, and if we wait until such estimate is available it will probably mean at
least the loss of another year in time, and in the meantime we will have to run chances.
I do not think myself that it will be necessary to expend the total amount but as you can readily understand
when this work is started it will have to be carried on until finished, and there is absolutely no use in making a
make-shift on work of this kind.
I think the ratepayers will also realize that the City
Council will not make any unnecessary expenditures, but
we are up against rather a grave situation, and in asking
you to vote for or against this By-law wc are simply putting the matter fairly before you and asking you to accept
your share of the responsibility.
If there is any information that any Ratepayer wishes
or if you care to go Into this mutter from any angle, 1 will
be only too pleased to meet you at nny time.
I remain yours truly,
Supt. City Works.

Vancouver. — Tbe fifteen-storey
bulk of the Hotel Vancouver is familiar to all visitors to Vancouver. But
of all the people who pass it each
day and the many who have stayed
in the hostelr; it is probable that
not one in thousands realizes just
what a tremendous enterprise tha
hotel is.
To run the hotel—which has approximately 600 rooms—requires a
year-round staff of about 400 employees. The comparatively small
matter of keeping paint work and
kalsomining in spotless condition
and cleaning the ornate plaster wark
around the rotunda requires tht continuous services of five painters and
ten helpers.
1 Thegc men are hard put to it to
keep ahead of the dirt which hi
brought into the hotel on the smoke-
laden air. While they are keeping
thc walls and ceilings bright no leas
than seven rotunda cleaners are at
work each day keeping floors and
windows immaculate and seeing tbat
worn-out electric light bulbs — no
mean task in itself — are instantly
But it is in the downstairs regions
of the hotel, far from the gaze of
travellers. Ihat the majority of tba
large number of employees pass
their days. In the engine-room
where light and power for the hotel
arc made there are five engineers;
a chief, three third-class and ono
fourth-class. There are four stokers,
four ashmen, two shovelers and two
Then there are basement cleaners,
store-room men. four kitchen cleaners, two printers—for menu*—a
; itrdman. an iceman, five food checkers and three men on food control
It ts the duty of the last named to
?ee that every ounce of food which
leaves the storerooms is tabulated,
so that at the end of each day tha
■ .•of its on dining-room operation
can be instantly checked.     '
The kitchen is the largest unit of
the hotel. Here there ara a cbaf
wiih forty-eight assistant cooks to
serve the dining-room and grill. Far
,*ie lunch counter there are three
-eparate cooks. Two of the eoaks
.:.. nothing hut broiling, three do no-
thlng but frying, three cook vegetables exclusively and there an six
nastry cooks. In addition, there are
.■onks' for   boiling   eggs,   some wha
,ke tea. others for coffee, one man
wlio spends his life making toast and
another whose sole duty is to dean
and open oysters.
The quantity of food necessary to
feed the guests in one day would
ipn.il the average housewife. No
leM than ninety dozen eggs are used
dally. Between 3,000 and 5,000 lunch
ind dinner rolls are baked each day.
lo butter these, and for cooking, 100
pounds of creamery butter are used
each day. Carrots are consumed at
the rale of 100 pounds a day and
between 800 and 1000 pounds of
potatoes are used each twenty-four
hours. Other vegetables are used ia
quantities nf from fifty to 601
pounds    according    to    how    many
eft*, there are in the house.
It lakes from eighteen to twenty
gallons of cream, fifty gallons of
milk and from 175 to 200 pounds of

Joint action or the federal anil provincial governments in making an Intensive geological survey of the ore
deposit*-, of British Columbia was
forecasted in a letter from Mr. W. H.
Collins, director of the geological survey In the department of mines at Ottawa, read at the mining bureau of
the Vancouver Hoard of Trade a few
days ago.
Several weeks ago the bureau wrote
asking that the federal government
should arrange for au expert geological survey of ihe iron ore resources
of the province. Mr. Collins, in his
letter, states that this matter is already receiving consideration. He
points out that from the scattered
nature of the ores, especially the magnetite deposits along the coast, a survey would undoubtedly involve a considerable amount of examination by
drills, lt Is doubtful, he added, that
any survey less Intensive would serve
the purpose, and If sucli a survey
was undertaken it would probably
have to be done by the geological survey department in co-operation with
the provincial department of mines.
He has written to J. D. MacKenzie.
in cliargo of the federal office In Vancouver, to get in touch with the provincial authorities and ascertain their
views. When tills has been obtained1,
lie nays, the federal department will
be in a hetter position to know whether and how such a survey of the iron

il is Probably nothing in Canadian
literature has been more quoted
than Bliss Carman's "lav/ Tide on
Gram) Pre," a poem which breathes
thr -spirit of nature ns felt on the
lovei.v shores of Nova Scotia. The
modern Canadian poets are following in the footsteps of these writers,
but ftoing further afield, us the
facilities for travel throughout the
r-'eal Dominion are extended. Thus,
for instance, in a neat volume of
poems by a young Irish-Canadian
poet, .VI. A. Ilargadon, the scene
changes from Ireland to Nova
Pcnth, Quebec, snd the Canadian
Rockies. Here i* a charming verse
from a poem about Lake Louise:
"This lake is God's best picture;
that is why
fie  hung  it  on  the mountains at
the sky
And set it in so beautiful a frame;
Art galleries of heaven have none
the  jame."
This is the closing verse of a poem
inspired  by  the  majestic  beauty of
"There is no  lovelier place to live
And when at last f die,
I think my soul will go to Banff
Instead of to the sky;
For here there is no ion-owing.
No suffering nor care,
And, up so near to paradise.
It seems enfolded there."
The French-Canadians are described
"Branch of a splendid race transplanted here
Illuming   life   through   all   this
lovely land."

That an Improved era in the smelting business Is drawing close is evidenced by the fact that the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company
of Canada, Limited, are now doubling
the capacity of tholr lead refinery.
The present capacity of the plant, under ordinary conditions, is about
ninety torn, a day, but with the many
changes being mado ln iho works
the capacity will be nearly doubled.
Another Improvement In the company's works Is the construction ot
a custom zinc plant to handle ores
of the outside district. These ores
are originally very rich tn sliver
content and lt haa been found Impracticable to mix them with the baser ore from the Sullivan mine at Kim-

the treating of the large tonnago from

structures by culverts and fills where
feasible, considerable work of thii
nature waa undertaken. Most of tlie
bridges were erected by contract.
River-Dank Protection.—At Natal
some work was done ot a minor nature to divert the course of Michel

protect the main road.
AH protection (work successfully
withstood the flood period. There
was no loss of bridges, and traffic was
not interfered with.

The first meetiug of the Board of
Directors of the Cariboo Exploration
Company, Limited, was held Tuesday
afternoon in the offices of their solicitors, Messrs. Lawe & Fisher. This
company has been organized by a
number of people of Fernie, Blalrmore, Coleman, Pincher Creek and
other towns along the Crow's Nest
Puss for the purpose of prospecting
und developing certuin leases controlled by them in the Barkerville-
Qnesncl district of the Cariboo country.
The Uarkerville distrct of the Cariboo hus long been known as a gold
producing country, coming into prominence in 1858. Difficult transportation
facilities has held back development.
However, these are eliminated since
tbe P. O. & E. railway has reached
Quc-mel, and there are now many
indications of rapid development.
Three other companies are completing arrangements to start uuivc work
as soon as the snow disappears, this
company making the fourth.
The company intends to thoroughly
prospect their several leaseg before
introducing a Calfornia type goto
dredge, using a Keystone drill for this
purpose. One of tbe latest models of
Keystone drill, fully equpped, is now
at ltarkerville ready to be transferred
to their properties as soon as spring
opens tip. Tbe company has aleady
had engineers on the property and
such superficial examination a& they
could give lt, produced very encouraging results.

Is this week sending out blank forms
by the thousand, in connection with
the above, which should be filled ln
by the party receiving same aud returned to htm by tbe 31st of March.
A careful perusal of the copy will
materially assist in filling them out
correctly. Any single person whose
yearly income for the year ending
-December 31st 1921, exceeded the sum
of $1200.00, should make a report and
failure to receive the blank form from
'the assessor ls no excuse for not do-
ng so as the onus ls on the individual
and any application to hi»- office for
blank forms will receive his immediate attention. The same remarks apply to married persons with the exception that the amount allowed them
by Statute ls $1600-00. There is also
an allowance of $200.00 for each de-
pendent: Dependent with regard to
any taxpayer means a child of the
taxpayer under the age of eighteen
years or a child over that age who fs
dependent on his parents on account
of mental or physcal Incapacity, or a
brother, sister, half-brother or half-
sister of the taxpayer under the age
ot eighteen years who ia dependent
on him for support, or a brother, sister, half-brother or half-sister of the
taxpayer over that age wlio is dependent on him for support on account of physical or mental Incapacity, or a father, mother, stepfather,
stepmother, grandfather or grandmother of the taxpayer who is dependent
on him for support on account of
physical or mental incapacity. The
taxpayer ls also allowed exemption of
the amount of all premiums of life
insurance on his lire paid by him
but the amount of premiums so added
shall not in any case exceed one-sixth
of his gross annual income. The provincial rate of taxation Is as follows:
One per cent on all net income not
exoeeding $2600.00, two per cent when
the net Income exceeds $2600.00 and
does not exceed $3600.00, three per
cent when the net income exceeds
$3600.00 and does not exceed $4600.00,
and so on up to fifteen per cent when
the net income exceeds $19,500.00.
The tax on personal property ln all
Instances ls one per cent, but is only
used when the revenue from same is
greater than that which would he derived from income. The Fort Steele
AsBesflment District covers the Electoral Districts of Cranbrook and Fernie and anyone In this area who desires any information iu connection
with these forms should communicate
with the assessor.

so.ni reusonuble tlmt a heavy expense
Hhould be Incurred In attempting to
provide for a greater supply of water
than hitherto we have been able to
get along with by careful management.
If 1 understand aright there are two
principal expenditures to he provided (or; flrBt the enlargement of the
present reservoir by the building of
new and higher dam, probably of
concrete, which will raise the water
level some five feet; and second the
Increase ot flow in St. Joseph's Creek
by piping water from Oold Creek
some two miles across the low divide
which separates the two creeks. Only some of this work may be done this
year, but a fund is to be provided for
future improvement. Whatever may
be done, it is essentially these two
projects which account for the large
sum asked for.
Six years ago the present reservoir
had a capacity of 1,005,50. gallons
when maintained at the ordinary lev-
el. .Not having been cleaned out tor
at least seven or eight years it is
natural that considerable silting up
has occurred, particularly at the upper end where Uie mud laden spring
freshet is first checked. In any case
tbe plan of the reservoir shows this
upper portion to he much shallower
than at lower end and when thick ice
is formed little, if any, water can be
found here. If in addition, from any
cause the reservoir is drawn upon and
the level lowered the ice drops and
remains so, any rise in tlle water s'm-
ply flowing over the tee, again to
free..- and further diminish the capacity of the reservoir. It fs claimed
that an additional five feet in depth
would do away with tills condition
of shallowness at the upper end on
account of the natural configuration
of the ground a. well as Increasing
the capacity by double, leaving aside the question of extra capacity
for the moment, it is apparent that
ihis shallow condition can be overcome by getting rid of the accumulation of silt and If necessary excavating into the original earth. This
will also increase the capacity to
some extent and it must be evident
that this is a cheap and simple piece
of work compared to building a new
ami higher dam. However the most
important thing is never to let the
surface of the reservoir be lowered
while covered with ice. Even with the
proposed new reservoir this remains
almost as essential as It has been thus
far, for after all ithe little extra water to be stored is insignificant compared with the natural 'flow of the
creek even at Its lowest.
This latter foct Is the crux of the
argument against a-new reservoir.
The natural flow of the creek where
it was not impeded by ice was probably about 2 cubic feet per second this
winter equivalent to only 20 hours
flow from the extra reservoir capacity. In other words if no water came
Into the reservoir the catastrophe
would be averted only this length of
time. If one cubic foot per second
was flowing in the creek double this
tlmo and so on. A consideration ot
this makes It at once apparent that
a large expenditure on the dam for
the sake ot getting storage Is entirely
incommensurate with the benefit derived which Is further augmented by
the fact that it will be still dangerous
to lower the level in winter.
As to wheUier the old dam ls not
due to be replaced on account ot Its
age Is another question and so doubt
worth investigating, but It can be Mid
beforehand that It was originally a
crib dam with a plank facing on the
upper side rendered impervious by a
large quent'ty of earth In front of
lt. The planks below the water line
being wet will last Indefinitely though
the lower side cribbing, not so continuously wetted, will rot. The Inside
of the dam has been filled with earth
and large quantities have been placed
In front of It at different timet so that
it has become largely an earth dam.
I think that a comparatively small
expenditure, say not exceeding $1000
might be advisable In further strengthening it, but It would be wise not
to meddle with the wooden portion
except at the sluiceway.
Something should also be done to
prevent the freeslng of the creek above the dam. This I believe was tha
most serious menace that existed this
season and occurred at least once before. I am told that this arises mainly it not wholly an Uw HIM aaarter
believe there Ib any serious problem P&rtcularly so that wc may have com.
here. The records kept liy the gov- l,lcl0 •'"••*■ lu «"--* of greater „Pt.,|s •„

that al no time during tlie summer such a large sum of money il would

was uo waste would amply supply a

As to the Oold (.'reek proposition,
I am not in a position tu make any
definite statements, never having thoroughly investigated Uie matter, but I
am inclined to lofck with disfavor on
It as being expensive and not necessary for many years to come wth proper conservation of our present water.
One thing seems certain at any rate,
that until this matter has heen carefully investigated from an engineering point of view, and a definite
scheme proposed with estimates, that
no money should be asked for it.
If I may be permitted I would suggest the following expedients Instead
of a new dam and additional water
from Cold Creek.
1. Cleaning out the old reservoir
and further excavation and deepening
of the upper end but none whatever
in the proximity of the dam, which
would tend to weaken it. The excav,
ated material mghl be possibly used
for widening and strengthening the
old dam.
2. A careful examination of the
planking along the face of tlie dam
made from tlie inside so as not to disturb the material ln front of it which
renders it Impervious. If this is saturated and sound the front of tlie dam
is safe and minor improvements can
be made as they suggest themselves.
3. Clean out the creek above the
reservoir and make such improvements as will ensure against interference wtth the full flow of the creek
at all times-
4. Find out the cause of wuste In
town, because tliere must be wuste
In view of the fact that a supply of
100 gallons per day for each person
means only about oue half a cubic
foot per second. The system In Slaterville Is a case In [joint.
5. Never unless during a fire let
the level of the reservoir sink during
the winter below its ordinary level.
This can be averted by partially closing the valve at the corner of Edwards St. and Lumsden Ave. to reduce
pressure. The pressure has beon re-| ^bTt-formlai drag. II .od it Tour drag,
